Eli Brecheen and his parents, Lee Allen Brecheen and Betty Jo Fleming, were visiting friends Saturday on Riverbend Road. The friends said they could stay overnight in a trailer on the property. Fleming told authorities all three were sleeping in the living room when Brecheen woke her up at about 9:15 a.m. Sunday and asked where Eli was. They started looking for the child when Brecheen found Eli lying unresponsive in the lake out back. Eli was placed on the dock while his dad started CPR. DeRosa firefighters and Nature Coast EMS personnel continued resuscitation efforts as the boy was transported to Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center. Efforts to save the child continued at the hospital for almost two hours after the call had first been initiated; however, they were ultimately unsuccessful. The sheriffs office is investigating the childs death; no foul play is suspected, officials said. Houston: Time to retire MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Andy Houston is retiring again. Eight years after he gave up his first retirement in 2006 for a job as Crystal River city manager, Houston announced Monday he would retire for good July 18. Houston, who at eight years at the helm is the longest-serving Crystal River city manager in the past 25 years, informed council members by phone calls Monday morning and provided a resignation letter as well. There are issues facing the city that will require a multi-year commitment to address, and the city would be best served by a manager who can make a commitment to be here to see those issues to conclusion, he wrote. At this point in my life, I am not that person. Houston said he turns 63 in July and thought now was the time to resign. He told council members he would stay longer if more time is needed to find his successor. Mayor Jim Farley said he had no idea Houston was thinking of resigning until he got the call Monday morning. Im very sad about it, Farley said. Hes going to be hard to replace. Crystal River held the infamous reputation as a city manager revolving door when Houston came out of retirement to apply for an opening. He had spent 30 years working for the city of St. Petersburg and was living in Georgia when he and his wife Susan decided to move back to Andy Houstonlongest-serving Crystal River city manger in the past 25 years.

Rick Scott signed into law on Monday the Florida GI Bill, modeled after the World War II-era program and intended to make Florida the most militaryfriendly state in the nation. The wide-ranging measure (HB 7015), rushed through the Legislature the first week of session as a priority of House and Senate leadership, provides university tuition waivers for veterans, pays for military and guard base improvements, is expected to help increase employment opportunities for veterans and allocates $1 million a year to sell the state to veterans. Andrew Sloan, a Georgia native who spent six years in the U.S. Air Force and has been lobbying lawmakers since September on behalf of student veterans, said the bill will draw other veterans to Floridas universities. We served our nation and we only ask for that which we earned, by virtue of our service, (to) be there when we get home, said Sloan, who is now a political science and Soldier surprises sibling at school MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleUnited States Army Specialist Bryan Trefry surprises his little brother Joseph Wickson on Monday afternoon in the Forest Ridge Elementary School cafeteria.

NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS After one year on the job as Inverness city manager-in-training, Eric Williams is still in awe. In one years time he has immersed himself in the history and operations and projects of the city, attended meetings and events, gotten out into the community learning about the various neighborhoods and the people who live in them and went toe-to-toe with the Humanitarians when he evicted a colony of feral cats from Whispering Pines Park. That was challenging and a real learning experience for me, but it all worked out and I still stand by it as the best decision for the park, he said. Also in his first year, he and wife Jessica had a baby boy, Kent, who is now 5 months old. Since April 1, 2013, Williams, 32, has been in training to be city manager in three to five years if hired by city council replacing City Manager Frank DiGiovanni when he finally retires. People have called me Frank Jr., which I guess they mean as a compliment and what I consider a very high compliment, Williams said. Basically, this past year Ive been ingratiating myself into the operations of the city and learning the things it takes for a transition like this to be a smooth shift in the future hopefully. Ive appreciated Franks fairness and willingness and ability to provide leadership and also freedom to be able to do what I do best, which is lead and manage people. In his first few months, the two main areas of the city Williams concentrated on were planning and development and Whispering Pines Park. Because of my experience in development and planning with the county, Frank had me help Dale Malm (community development director), who was new at the city. At the time we were dealing with a new Publix and OReillys, a future Panera, we had Wendys tear down their building and rebuild thats big for any planning director, and two heads are better than one. As for Whispering Pines Park, Williams has had a hand in staff organizational changes, moving the sheriffs office substation from downtown to the park, as well as some other projects like the new entrance sign. Im proudest of the work here at the park, he said. Whispering Pines Park is one of those full circle professional accomplishments because I started my career with the Division of Forestry in this region, and this is part of the state forest. Its something I cherish and Ive been able to leverage the skills I have in land management and make an impact here. DiGiovanni said Williams has been an asset even in his first year. He understands planning and he knows how to get things done, he said. Hes got a good background in how government works and how it needs to run. Hes been able to spend time absorbing information and learning and getting to understand the systems and the dynamics of delivering the services of the city, and I have every confidence hes going to do well. Im really impressed with him. As for year two, Williams said the coming year will be a season in fates perfection, saying, In fates perfection, I find myself in the best job Ive ever had.

Deputies shut down grow house SEANARNOLD Special to the ChronicleA Citrus Springs man faces multiple drug charges after deputies discovered a grow house with more than 25 pounds of marijuana at his residence. On Friday, Moises Martinez, 37, of West Anderson Lane in Citrus Springs, was charged with felony trafficking in marijuana and possession of marijuana with intent to sell. Several deputies reportedly visited the home on an unrelated investigation and, while there, they noticed the garage windows were all blacked out and water was coming out from the garage floor. Martinez was reportedly cooperative and gave permission for a search of the premises. According to his arrest affidavit, he admitted to being in possession of over 40 marijuana plants growing in his garage. Martinez further stated that he had been growing marijuana for the last three years, but was not the original person to set up the grow operation. When searching the garage, deputies found 41 marijuana plants that were approximately 3 to 4 feet tall. The grow unit also featured a water and filtering source and fluorescent lighting with 12 light ballasts. A diversion for electricity, set up to steal electricity from another source, was also discovered. According to the sheriffs office, they had received numerous complaints that drug activity was taking place at the residence. On two separate occasions during the past year, large bags of marijuana clippings had been found discarded on the roadside near the residence. On one of these occasions, a receipt from a Walgreens store was also discovered with the clippings. Detectives went to the store and reviewed video footage based on the timestamp on the receipt and were able to identify Martinez in the video. Martinez was held on a $15,000 bond.

Theres a website dedicated to all things April Fools: www.youmust bekidding.com 11.

He mastered the art of the pitch at a Tibetan monastery and he pitched with a boot on his left foot and his right foot bare. TRUE OR FALSE? 1. TRUE (Maybe).

Well, we found it on Wikipedia so it must be true. 6. TRUE, but to be fair, the editor was only a few years out of college and didnt know any better. He would never try that prank today, Mr. Mulligan. 7. FALSE. The BBCs report was about pasta egg plant. 8. Umm isnt it obvious? 9. TRUE! TRUE! TRUE! Cmon people, stop falling for this awful April Fools Day gag. Next thing you know, friends will laugh as they stick paper fish on your back. 10. FALSE.

Investigation reveals 41 plants under cultivation in garage; man arrested Moises Martinez PATFAHERTY Staff writerThe latest state job figures show Citrus Countys estimated unemployment rate for February was 7.5 percent, the same rate as January. The countys unemployment rate was 9.0 percent for February 2013. According to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, the number represents 4,278 residents out of work with 52,477 holding jobs. The countys estimated total workforce for February was 56,755. This marks an increase of 726 workers over January and the second straight month of workforce growth. Only nonagricultural jobs are included in the state tallies Citrus and Marion counties tied for the 12th highest unemployment rate among Florida counties. Levy County was 16th at 7.3 percent and Hernando County was tied for fourth with an unemployment rate of 8.6 percent. Sumter County came in at 5.4 percent was tied for 58th. Floridas seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 6.2 for February, the same rate as January, down from 7.9 percent in January 2013. Statewide there were 7.71 million people holding jobs. And a report out Monday from the Institute of Economic Competitiveness at the University of Central Florida cited the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, as having a possible role in future job numbers. It states companies may alter their approach to managing labor and shift toward fewer full-time workers and more parttime workers. This could allow firms to avoid having to provide health care insurance or paying fines for not providing it. That shift could give false signals of a healthier labor by pushing up workforce numbers and lowering the unemployment rate. The U.S. unemployment rate was 6.7 percent for February. The report noted that an unemployment rate of 6.5 percent is a key level stated by the Federal Reserve for beginning to raise interest rates.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty @chronicleonline.com. Unemployment held steady in February Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The Florida Legislature is pushing through a bill that targets websites that charge individuals a fee to remove their police mug shots, a practice that some have criticized as a legal form of extortion. The bill targets companies that obtain booking photos from law enforcement agencies and then put them online, along with the persons name and the charges they face. They then charge arrestees hundreds to thousands of dollars to remove them or face continued embarrassment. Some websites refuse to remove the photos even if the charges are later dropped or if the person is acquitted. Under the proposed law, an individual could obtain a court order for removal. The website would be subject to a $1,000-a-day fine if it doesnt comply within 14 days. Florida is trailing several states in addressing the practice by such websites as mugshots.com. States across the U.S. are moving on this, so were hoping to catch up, said Sen. Darren Soto, D-Kissimmee, the author of a measure that would require mug shot sites to remove booking photos at no charge. State and local governments would be exempt from the law. Bill targets websites that wont remove mugshots

Asked whether he was engaged, the Pirates of the Caribbean star replied: The fact that Im wearing a chicks ring on my finger is probably a dead giveaway. Not very subtle. He laughed as he lifted up his left hand and displayed a single diamond on a band around his ring finger. His comments follow months of unconfirmed reports of his engagement to actress Heard, 27, who starred alongside Kevin Costner in Days to Kill released in the U.S. earlier this year. Depp and Heard starred together in The Rum Diary, filmed in Puerto Rico in 2009. In 2012, Depp split with his partner of 14 years, French model-singer VanessaParadis They have two children. The 50-year-old actor was in Beijing to promote his new movie Transcendence. Depp plays a terminally ill scientist who downloads his mind into a computer in the sci-fi drama that asks: What if we could upload a human mind into a computer? It also stars Rebecca Hall as Depps wife, and Morgan Freeman. Transcendence comes out in China on April 18 the same day as the U.S. release. Surfboard, sailboat innovator diesPALM DESERT, Calif. Hobart Hobie Alter, who helped popularize surfing and sailing with the development of the foam surfboard and the Hobie Cat sailboat, died Saturday at his Palm Desert home, according to a statement on the Hobie sporting goods website. He was 80. A cause of death was not disclosed. The Orange County Register said he had been battling cancer. The self-taught innovator and surfer had his start in the early 1950s carving wooden surfboards in the garage of his familys Laguna Beach home. When the balsa wood used for the boards became scarce, he and his friend Gordon Grubby Clark created surfboards out of polyurethane foam. The boards were durable, but had better flexibility and were less expensive than wooden boards. The invention revolutionized surfing, and Hobie became a top surfboard brand. He was survived by his wife, Susan; a daughter; and two sons.Williams named as coach on The VoiceNEW YORK NBC has signed singer-songwriter Pharrell Williams as a coach for the upcoming seventh season of its musical competition series The Voice.

German double-major attending Florida State University. Scott tied his own experiences when leaving the U.S. Navy to wanting to support veterans and active duty service members. I remember when I got out of the Navy back in the early s, it was not a good time to get out of the service in this country, Scott said after the signing ceremony at the National Guard Armory in Panama City. According to the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs, the state currently houses 1.5 million veterans, of which nearly onethird are from the Vietnam era and 231,000 served in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. Floridas nursing home population includes nearly 114,000 World War II-era veterans and more than 178,000 veterans of the Korean conflict. The bills sponsor is state Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, R-Inverness. The package, expected to cost more than $30 million in its first year, includes an anticipated $12.5 million for ongoing upgrades of the states National Guard facilities and $7.5 million to purchase a total of 45 acres of buffer lands around MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Naval Station Mayport in Jacksonville and Naval Support Activity Panama City. The proposal also requires Visit Florida to spend $1 million a year on marketing aimed at veterans.LOCAL/STATECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, APRIL1, 2014 A5 000HPUY Call the Chronicle or your advertising representative to reserve your space 563-5592 Graduation 2014 Tell the special graduate in your life how much you care.

Houston applied for two jobs: Crystal River and a city in Orange County. He never made it to the Orange County interview. I never expected to be here eight years, he said in an interview. I figured I would give it my best shot. It would play itself out one way or another. Ive been very fortunate to have the support of councils. Farley said Houstons calm demeanor and professional oversight brought stability to city hall that had not been seen in decades or ever. I like him. I respect him. Hes the best city manager the city of Crystal River has ever had, Farley said. Hes a guy on top of everything. Hes involved in the community. What could you say bad about him? Houston has had a luxury his predecessors did not have: near-universal support from city councils, even with election turnover. That will help in finding a successor, he said. Youve got different personalities on council who are not as confrontational as what Ive heard stories about, he said. People who may have been hesitant to apply before will not be hesitant now. During his tenure, Houston and the city council approved a sewer expansion project that removed more than 500 coastal homes from septic tanks. He also is proud of a $6 million project $2 million by the city, the rest from state grants to pipe sewage effluent from the city to the Duke Energy complex north of the city. The project, expected to begin in the next few weeks, will reduce sprayfield effluent from seeping into Kings Bay, and also reduce Dukes water consumption by 800,000 gallons a day, Houston said. The Three Sisters Springs property also came under city ownership during Houstons reign. He, along with Lace Blue-McLean, sharedChronicleCitizen of the Year honors in 2008 for their efforts in unifying a host of agencies and organizations to pull off the citys purchase. Houston said he expects squabbles over use of the property will eventually reach a conclusion. In three years it will all be resolved, he said. Itll be open to the public and at the end of the day it will be a very good thing for the city. The city council at its April 14 meeting will discuss how to proceed with finding its next city manager. Farley said he would expect a unified council deciding how to move forward. I dont think anybody on this council wants to go back to the bad old days, Farley said. Those days are gone forever. Theyre not going to happen again. HOUSTONContinued from Page A1 BILLContinued from Page A1 Theyre as close as close can be, Wickson said. He really misses him. Joe knew Bryan was back, but he thought he was in Massachusetts. He actually got here Sunday, but we couldnt say anything. As Trefry made his way into the lunch room and hid behind the stage curtain, Joe came in with his class and sat down with his lunch. When Trefry crept up behind Joe and tapped him on the shoulder, Joe froze. And then he cried, as did many others in the room. The two embraced, and Trefry asked, Did you miss me? Through tears, all Joe could do was nod and whisper a quiet, Yeah. Once the students around him realized what was going on, they started applauding. The best part, Joe got to get his book bag and leave for the day and no homework. Once he regained his composure, he told a reporter, I was happy and surprised when I saw him I havent seen him in a long time. He added, I like that hes in the military and hes fighting for our freedom. Trefry is a cargo specialist in the Army National Guard. He will be visiting his family in Citrus County for two weeks before returning to Massachusetts. He said he hopes to take Joe to Universal Orlando. It was everything I hoped it would be, Wickson said of her sons reunion. Its been hard keeping it a secret, but it was worth it. hard to provide the fresh, quality products they want at prices they can afford, said Joey Medina, WinnDixies regional vice president. Plus, we will offer a suite of in-store savings programs, like the fuelperks reward program. He said the rebranded stores will also honor WinnDixie customer cards. While the name on the storefronts is changing, the people running them dont have to, Medina added, Weve invited Sweetbay associates to join the WinnDixie family and look forward to exchanging what it means to be local and to be working together to run even greater stores. Last May, Bi-Lo announced an agreement with the Delhaize Group to acquire 72 Sweetbay stores and two other supermarket chains. Subsequently, the company said it will retire the Sweetbay banner name and convert those stores to Winn-Dixie to reduce overlapping market footprints. The conversion process started in March, with 17 stores in the Fort MyersNaples and Tampa areas. The Sweetbay store in Dunellon is scheduled to close April 5 and reopen as a Winn-Dixie April 11. However, that store could be affected by a Federal Trade Commission (FTC) finding that the acquisition would harm competition in several local markets. According to the FTC, BiLos purchase of the Delhaize stores would likely harm consumers through higher prices, diminished quality and reduced service levels in Dunnellon and 10 other communities. Dunnellon would go from three full-line retail grocery stores to two. As a proposed remedy, the FTC would have Bi-Lo sell the Dunnellon Sweetbay to Rowes IGA Supermarkets. Rowes currently operates five supermarkets in the Jacksonville market. The FTC closed its public comment period on the issue March 27. Mitchell J. Katz, FTC spokesman, said the commission will respond to all public comments. He said it is uncertain how long the process might take.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty@ chronicleonline.com.

Associated PressWASHINGTON With just hours to spare, Congress stepped Monday to finalize legislation to prevent doctors who treat Medicare patients from being hit with a 24percent cut in their payments from the government. The Senates 64-35 vote sends a measure to delay the cuts for a year to President Barack Obama, whos expected to quickly sign it. The House passed the measure last week. The $21 billion measure would stave off a 24percent cut in Medicare reimbursements to doctors for a year and extend dozens of other expiring health care provisions such as higher payment rates for rural hospitals. The legislation is paid for by cuts to health care providers, but fully half of the cuts wont kick in for 10 years. Its the seventeenth temporary patch to a broken payment formula that dates to 1997 and comes after lawmakers failed to reach a deal on financing a permanent fix. The measure passed the House on Thursday, but only after top leaders in both parties engineered a voice vote when it became clear they were having difficulty mustering the twothirds vote required to advance it under expedited procedures. Several top Democrats opposed the bill, saying it would take momentum away from the drive to permanently solve the payment formula problem. Theres widespread agreement on bipartisan legislation to redesign the payment formula that would give doctors 0.5percent annual fee increases and implement reforms aimed at giving doctors incentives to provide less costly care. But theres no agreement on how to pay the $140billion cost of scrapping the old formula. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden, D-Ore., promised to keep pressing ahead with a long-term solution, proposing to use savings from the troop drawdown in Afghanistan to pay the cost. Republicans and most budget experts say such savings are phony and are demanding at least some of the money to come from cuts to Obamas Affordable Care Act. Paying for this through (war savings) is the mother of all gimmicks, said Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala. Groups representing doctors, including the powerful American Medical Association, opposed the legislation because it sets back the effort for a permanent solution. Six Democrats opposed the measure, including Wyden, while 16 Republicans voted in favor of it. We just dont have the votes right now to fix this problem for good, said Majority leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., who negotiated the measure with House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. For the millions of elderly Americans and their doctors this fix is good news. It means the promise of accessible, quality health care to our nations seniors is being honored for another year. The heavily lobbied measure blends $16 billion to address Medicare physicians payments with about $5 billion more for a variety of other expiring health care provisions, like higher Medicare payments to rural hospitals and for ambulance rides in rural areas. Manufacturers of certain drugs to treat kidney disease catch a break, as do dialysis providers and the state of California, which receives increases in Medicare physician fees in 14 counties such as San Diego and Sacramento that are designated as rural and whose doctors therefore receive lower payments than their urban counterparts. The bill increases spending by $17 billion over the next three years, offsetting the cost with cuts to health care providers. The authors of the bill employed considerable gimmickry to amass the cuts, however, and fully half of them dont appear for 10 years. For instance, the bill claims $5 billion in savings through a timing shift in Medicare cuts in 2024. Other savings come from curbs on payments to hospitals that care for a large share of indigent patients. But those hospitals first get a one-year reprieve from cuts scheduled in 2016.

Obituaries Hagel acts to improve POW-MIA accounting effort ROBERTBURNS AP national security writerWASHINGTON In a bid to improve the governments accounting for missing U.S. war dead, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Monday he is establishing a new Pentagon agency with more focused authority and innovative approaches. Were streamlining everything, Hagel told a news conference. The Pentagon has been under congressional pressure for months to take decisive action to improve the POW-MIA accounting effort. Its failings were highlighted last summer when The Associated Press disclosed an internal Pentagon report that said the search for remains of missing soldiers on foreign battlefields was mismanaged, wasteful and acutely dysfunctional. After lengthy study, Hagel decided to combine the functions of the two leading agencies in this field the Joint POW-MIA Accounting Command, based in Hawaii, and the Defense POWMIA Office, based in the Pentagon. Those two organizations will disappear; the new agency will be directed by a civilian official not yet named. Michael D. Lumpkin, who is masterminding the reorganization in his temporary role as acting undersecretary of defense for policy, told reporters Monday that it will take some additional weeks to implement the plan. We need to break away from the way of traditionally doing business that is perceived by some to be outdated, institutionalized thinking and a behavior that didnt deliver the number of remains accounted for that we had hoped, Lumpkin said. The Congress in 2009 set a requirement that the Pentagon identify at least 200 sets of remains a year by 2015 a number it has not come close to achieving in recent years. Lumpkin said he thinks the 200 figure is attainable with a budget that he said would remain near recent levels of about $100 million a year. Last year 60 sets of remains were identified. The head of the Joint POW-MIA Accounting Command, Maj. Gen. Kelly McKeague, told Congress last August that a realistic goal is 125 identifications per year by 2018. The Pentagon works MIA cases year-round. It lists 83,000 as unaccounted for from World War II, the Korean War and from Vietnam, although a large percentage of those including remains lost at sea are believed not to be recoverable. Theres not a more poignant, emotional, important issue in our society today, Hagel told reporters, ... than you take care of the people who gave their lives to this country, and you take care of their families. And that has been a critical component of who we are as Americans from the beginning of this republic. The issue also is among the most divisive and controversial problems facing the Pentagon. The Pentagons inspector general is conducting a noncriminal investigation of potential fraud, waste and abuse of resources by the accounting agencies. Hagel said all communications with family members of the missing from past conflicts will be managed and organized by this new agency. One of the biggest complaints about the current system is from families who feel their interests have been neglected or their questions not adequately answered. Families in some cases wait decades to learn details about the circumstances of their loved ones loss, even if remains are never identified. Theyll have a place where they can go to identify updates, questions, concerns, Hagel said. And it wont be a one-way street. It will be a two-way street. Well communicate with them. Among other changes announced by Hagel, the Pentagon will establish a centralized database and case management system containing information about all missing service members. And the Pentagon will partner with private organizations with expertise in the identification of human remains. Congress passes bill to stop cut to Medicare doctors Associated PressSecretary of Defense Chuck Hagel speaks Friday during a retirement ceremony at the National Security Agency at Fort Meade, Md., for Gen. Keith B. Alexander from the Army and as head of the NSA, the Central Security Service and U.S. Cyber Command. Associated PressSenate Finance Committee Chairman Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore. speaks Oct. 14, 2009, on Capitol Hill in Washington. Congress voted Monday to give doctors who treat Medicare patients an 11th-hour reprieve from a cut in their government fees.

NY federal attorney: Stop corporate doomsday criesNEW YORK A federal prosecutor from New York said corporate America especially financial institutions will do almost anything to avoid a tough enforcement action. U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said Monday that includes using a Chicken Little routine by threatening death or dire consequences to evade criminal charges. He said senior executives have told him with great force and passion that criminal action will doom stock prices, cause clients and customers to flee and make senior executives want to quit. Bharara said his office is increasingly taking those claims with grains of salt. Instead of the sky falling in Chicken Little fashion, he said the companys fortunes sometimes actually improve because its viewed as putting problems behind it.Facebook CEO reaps $3.3B gain from stock optionsSAN FRANCISCO Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg reaped a $3.3 billion gain last year by exercising stock options in the social networking company that he founded in a Harvard University dorm room. The windfall saddled Zuckerberg with a huge tax bill, even though he limited his Facebook salary to just $1, according to regulatory documents filed Monday. It marks the second straight year that Zuckerberg has realized a huge gain on the holding that he has accumulated in Facebook Inc. since he started the company in 2004. In 2012, Zuckerberg made $2.3 billion off his stock options. Zuckerberg, 29, now has exhausted his supply of stock options after exercising 60 million of them last year at a price of 6 cents per share. He then sold 41.35 million shares for $55.05 apiece in December, primarily to pay for his tax bill on the gains. Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, also donated 18 million Facebook shares valued at $970 million to a Silicon Valley nonprofit. The December gift catapulted the couple to the top of The Chronicle of Philanthropys annual list of the most generous Americans. Even after selling and donating so much Facebook stock, Zuckerberg still owns 426.3 million Facebook shares currently worth $25.7 billion. The stock has more than doubled in value during the past year as Zuckerberg fulfilled his promise to sell more ads on the smartphones and tablet computers that bring in most of the traffic to Facebooks social networking service.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, APRIL1, 2014 A9 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,650 1,700 1,750 1,800 1,850 1,900 M ONDJF 1,840 1,880 1,920 S&P 500Close: 1,872.34 Change: 14.72 (0.8%) 10 DAYS 14,500 15,000 15,500 16,000 16,500 17,000 M ONDJF 16,120 16,320 16,520 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 16,457.66 Change: 134.60 (0.8%) 10 DAYSAdvanced2359 Declined752 New Highs147 New Lows8 Vol. (in mil.)3,158 Pvs. Volume2,929 1,993 1,976 2022 627 75 26 NYSE NASD DOW 16480.8516324.2216457.66+134.60+0.82%-0.72% DOW Trans.7587.647459.167574.96+123.60+1.66%+2.36% DOW Util.533.80526.94532.13+5.19+0.98%+8.47% NYSE Comp.10534.7610483.7010527.77+92.90+0.89%+1.23% NASDAQ4212.974180.544198.99+43.23+1.04%+0.54% S&P5001875.181859.161872.34+14.72+0.79%+1.30% S&P4001379.871360.101378.50+20.30+1.49%+2.68% Wilshire 500020019.0319809.2819996.01+186.73+0.94%+1.47% Russell 20001174.621156.671173.04+21.23+1.84%+0.81% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

There was plenty for investors to worry about in the first three months of the year, from tensions between Russia and the West over Ukraine and the winter storms that froze the U.S. economy in January and February. As a result, investors focused their attention on buying and holding safe investments, such as bonds, dividend-paying stocks, and gold. The Standard & Poors 500 rose 1.3 percent in the first three months of 2013. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 0.7 percent so far this year, and the Nasdaq composite is up 0.5 percent. It was S&P 500s its fifthstraight quarterly gain. It was also the indexs worst quarter since the fourth quarter of 2012. I think this bull market is starting to show signs of fatigue, said Wayne Wilbanks, chief investment officer at Wilbanks, Smith, Thomas in Norfolk, Va., which manages roughly $2.4 billion in assets. It was all about safety this quarter. Utility and health care stocks, which typically pay larger-than-average dividends and are less volatile than other stocks, rose 9 percent and 5.5 percent, respectively. Those two sectors were among the laggards last year. Riskier growth-oriented stocks, particularly in biotechnology, consumer discretionary and technology stocks, fared the worst. Among the biggest decliners this quarter, Twitter fell 27 percent, biotechnology company Celgene dropped 17 percent and Amazon.com fell 16 percent. Bonds were widely expected to do poorly in 2014 because the Federal Reserve was winding down its bond-buying program and the U.S. economy was improving. Instead, they did better than the stock market. The Barclays Aggregate Bond Index, a broad measure of the bond market that includes Treasurys, corporate and other types of bonds, is up 1.9 percent this quarter. Meager gains round out first quarter BusinessBRIEFS From wire reports
OPINION Page A10TUESDAY, APRIL 1, 2014 Pledge support to Catholic schoolAfter the meeting with Bishop Lynch, I was totally convinced that the closing of Pope John Paul II school is irreversible. He seemed like he had made up his mind a long time ago. The way he has gone about this matter is incomprehensible and has left a bitter taste with everyone concerned. He blindsided wonderful staff, the children and their families and our Pastor Bob. Some people walked out thinking that he is truly supporting our pleas, and if you are one of those people, you are in for a rude awakening. Bishop Lynch had a dream a few months ago and put out the forward campaign appeal in which he wants to raise more than $50 million for different earmarked items. Well, if he saw the problem with the school, he shouldve stepped to the plate and asked the Citrus County churches and parishioners for the support needed to keep our school open. As a Christian family, dedicated to our Catholic faith, we promised to help the bishop with his campaign, but since he dropped this bomb on us, we will no longer support his cause and instead promise to help our school instead. I am hereby asking that if you committed yourself to his campaign that you, too, reverse your pledge and apply to the school instead. He sent us a message and we must, as a community, respond accordingly. This letter is not intended to offend anyone who believes otherwise, it is simply our family opinion.The Matos family Inverness Most of the dead are babies and toddlers, and they perish in horrible ways starved, punched, shaken, burned, thrown from cars or simply forgotten. Theres nothing left to protect them except the state of Florida, which fails over and over. Kyla Joy Hall was beaten to death by her father at age 10 months. Eight months earlier, shed been hospitalized with multiple fractures and a bleeding brain, yet no one got arrested. Tavontae Gordon was smothered at age 2 months while sleeping on a couch with her mother, who was high on coke. Tavontaes sister, Tariji, was removed from the home by child welfare officials, but she was later returned when Rachel Gordon said shed kicked her drug habit. A few months later, Tariji was killed by a blow to the head and buried in a shallow grave by her mother, now in jail. Since January 2008, at least 477 children have died for no other reason than being overlooked by the system. Their families were known to the Florida Department of Children and Families, yet theyd been allowed to remain with reckless parents in high-risk homes. The blame goes in every direction, at every step of a crippled process. In some cases, incompetent investigators overlooked obvious danger signs. Other times, diligent case workers pleaded for action, but DCF lawyers said there wasnt enough evidence. Sometimes it was a judge who ordered that an endangered child remain in a powder-keg setting. Many of the victims heartbreaking stories have been told in the Miami Heraldsongoing investigative series, Innocents Lost. It is a horror saga, as shameful as it is nauseating. Of all the services people expect from government, none is more important than shielding the youngest and most helpless from brutality and neglect. Floridas record, dreadful for decades, is getting worse. Said interim DCF Secretary Esther Jacobo, I dont think we are broken; I think we are challenged. Unbelievable. How many babies must be buried before somebody in Tallahassee admits the system is broken? DCF has been grossly underreporting the number of child deaths to the Legislature, evidence of either ineptitude or a cover-up. Lawmakers have been consistently misled, which partly explains why DCF funding has been cut. Under Gov. Rick Scott, more case investigators were hired, yet money for oversight and family counseling was slashed. The agencys budget shrunk by $100 million during this fiscal year alone. A decade ago, the state embarked on a new child welfare strategy of family preservation, the mission being to not take children from their parents but rather work to improve the situation in the household. The concept was meant to placate advocates of parental rights, with an added costcutting benefit of reducing the number of children in statefunded foster homes (which have also generated plenty of nightmarish stories). A key component of the new system was to ask troubled parents to sign safety plans promising theyd do a better job of caring for their children. This approach has been, to put it mildly, disastrous. In one infamous case, a mother who refused to give up drugs was allowed to keep her 2-year-old daughter after pledging that she and her boyfriend wouldnt do dope in the childs presence. The little girl was later killed by the familys pet python after mom popped a Vicodin and dozed off. The Heralddocumented at least 83 tragic instances in which a child whose parents signed one or more DCF safety plans later died from neglect or abuse. We have kind of known they have failed, Jacobo replied when asked about the written promises, and we have kind of been at a loss as to how to fix it. Then kind of stop doing things that fail. Hows that for starters? Try listening more closely to experienced case workers and supervisors. Of the 477 child deaths during the last six years, 323 involved alcohol or drug use by parents or caregivers. Meanwhile, legislators have cut funds for drug treatment. And despite employing more investigators, DCF still loses track of suffering children. In at least 34 cases since 2008, a child died even though the agency had previously received 10 or more hotline reports about possible abuse. Kaleb Cronks family had been the subject of 26 worried calls to DCF. His mother, a drug addict, had been arrested 18 times. Incredibly, the state took no action to save Kaleb. The 1year-old was run over and killed by a pickup truck while crawling down a road. That was phone call No. 27. Last month, the governor proposed adding $40 million to help DCF decrease investigative caseloads and improve oversight of cases. Under his plan, the agencys budget would rise slightly more than 1 percent. Thats not nearly enough. DCF needs not only priority funding but a whole new direction. Family preservation is killing too many kids. Its inconceivable that any lawmaker who has been reading the Heraldsseries isnt both heartsick and aghast over what happened to little Kaleb and the others. One person whos been paying attention is Senate President Don Gaetz, a Republican from Niceville, who acknowledged that it will take tens of millions of dollars to start making DCF function as the law intends. I think in child welfare we have gone on the cheap, and I think thats been a mistake, he said. A terrible, frequently fatal mistake. To let it continue this way would be an immoral and unforgivable course.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald. Readers may write to him at: 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132.

Charlie Deans springs-protection bill, S.B. 1576, unanimously passed its first committee on March 20. Dean chairs the Committee on Environmental Preservation and Conservation, so the pomp was probably a little overstated. Nevertheless, this baby step is a victory of sorts: Its taken a long time to get comprehensive springsprotection legislation moving through the Florida Legislature, and now its doing just that. Its also leaving a wake, something that will be important in the coming years. Thats because while ratification by the full Senate and likely the House is more probable than possible this legislative session, support isnt subsidization. The bill calls for nearly $380 million in state dollars for septic tank mitigation and wastewater improvements alone, much more than anyone else in Tallahassee has indicated theyre willing to spend on environmental projects. That means its going to take years for the bills vision to even come close to being realized, and any hope for that longterm reality will hinge upon strong leadership from the bills authors. Theres hope for that, too, because the effort of Dean and his fellow senators has raised serious awareness in the Legislature and more broadly of the urgency of the need to do something about the states springs declining state. The prior week, the legislation picked up a sister bill in the House (1313), sponsored by Sanford Rep. Jason Brodeur, and the bill that got eight thumbs-ups on the 20th was a rewrite initiated after Dean met with stakeholders in the environmental and business communities to discuss issues both parties had with the proposed law. Despite lingering concerns, both of those groups are now voicing support for the legislation. Dean and the coalition of senators who served as the architects of the project have bolstered support for this initiative by bringing its opposition to the table, and thats remarkable. We anticipate repeats of this approval coming in the following weeks, and hope the initiative continues to gain support as it moves through both chambers of the Legislature.

How about knocking this thing off unless you control it a lot better with the parking. People were parking across the street where they didnt even own the property. They were charging people $4 or $5 to park the car. Then they took off after they made the money because it wasnt their property. They were trying to park on my property. I live on this street and here they are I had to tell him to get off my grass. Now if you cant control this a lot better, I think you ought to just do away with this organization or this thing that youre trying to run. I mean its disgusting with all these people. This is a small town. We dont need that many thousand people running around the little beach down there and everybody ruining peoples property.Wrong turnThis is Monday, March 18, at 3:58 p.m. This is for the fool who drove the yellow convertible sports car and turned right from the left-hand lane against a red light at a light at Forest Ridge and Roosevelt.

I would have broadsided your passenger car.

Big wheel Associated PressThe Las Vegas High Roller at The LINQ is seen Monday in Las Vegas. The 550-foot-tall ride is the highest observation wheel in the world and features 28 cabins that can accommodate up to 40 people each. More victims found in mudslideDARRINGTON, Wash. Crews searching through the muck and devastation wrought by Washingtons deadly mudslide are finding more human remains, bringing the official death toll to 24. Seventeen of those 24 victims have been positively identified, the Snohomish County medical examiners office said Monday afternoon. Previously, the official death toll was 21, with 15 victims identified. Approximately 22 people remain missing, authorities have said. Steve Harris, a division supervisor for the search effort, said search teams are learning more about the force of the March 22 slide, and that is helping them better locate victims in a debris field that is 70 feet deep in places. Harris said search dogs are the primary tool for finding remains in the small, mountainside community about 55 miles northeast of Seattle. He said searchers are finding human remains four to six times per day.Man shoots, kills NY police officerJOHNSON CITY, N.Y. Authorities said a man grabbed the service weapon of a police officer responding to a disturbance at an upstate New York business and shot him three times, killing him. Binghamton Police Chief Joseph Zikuski said Officer David Smith was responding to a reported disturbance at a health care facility in Johnson City on Monday morning when he was attacked. The police chief said 43-year-old MRI technician James Clark struggled with Smith outside Southern Tier Imaging before grabbing the officers gun and discharging the weapons entire magazine. Smith was an 18-year veteran of the force and died at the scene. Clark, from nearby Greene, was shot by another officer and died at a hospital.Senate report: No tips from tortureWASHINGTON A Senate investigation concludes waterboarding and other harsh interrogation methods provided no key evidence in the hunt for Osama bin Laden, according to congressional aides and outside experts familiar with a still-secret, 6,200page report. The finding could deepen the worst rift in years between lawmakers and the CIA. The CIA disputes the conclusion and already is locked with the Senate intelligence committee in an acrimonious fight amid dueling charges of snooping and competing criminal referrals to the Justice Department. The public may soon get the chance to decide, with the congressional panel planning to vote Thursday to demand a summary of its review be declassified.

Chad troops defend actionsBANGUI, Central African Republic The African peacekeeping mission in Central African Republic on Monday defended Chadian soldiers who had killed more than 30 civilians over the weekend, saying the troops had come under attack from Christian militants and were merely defending themselves. However, the response from Gen. Martin Tumenta Chomu was unlikely to dampen the mounting anger toward the Muslim Chadian forces, who are bitterly despised by Banguis Christian majority. Already some civilians were calling on the Christian fighters to step up their attacks on all Muslims following the deaths. Local authorities said at least 20 people were killed in the PK12 neighborhood of Bangui over the weekend, and more than 100 others were wounded when the Chadian forces, who are aiding the peacekeeping mission known as MISCA, opened fire. Twelve other deaths also were blamed on the same peacekeepers. The African peacekeeping mission, though, displayed vehicles pockmarked by gunfire and insisted the other side had drawn their weapons first.Israel recovers burial boxesJERUSALEM Israeli authorities on Monday unveiled 11 ancient burial boxes dating to around the time of Jesus, recovered by police during a midnight raid on antiquities dealers suspected of stealing the artifacts. The boxes include a pair of ossuaries believed to contain the remains of two noblemen who lived in Jerusalem some 2,000 years ago. Some are engraved with designs and even names, giving clues to their origin and contents. The boxes contain bone fragments and remnants of what experts say is pottery buried with the deceased. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the boxes were stolen from a cave near Jerusalem with the intent of being sold to collectors.Valls named as new French PMPARIS President Francois Hollande named former Interior Minister Manuel Valls as Frances new prime minister Monday, just 24 hours after his Socialists suffered heavy losses in nationwide municipal elections. Valls is consistently voted Frances most popular Socialist in opinion polls and is considered part of the right wing of the party. The 51-year-old has drawn comparisons with former conservative French President Nicolas Sarkozy and is also the most popular Socialist among Frances conservative right he wants, for example, to rethink Frances 35-hour working week, a Socialist initiative. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressSEOUL, South Korea North and South Korea fired hundreds of artillery shells into each others waters Monday in a flareup of animosity that forced residents of five front-line South Korean islands to evacuate to shelters for several hours, South Korean officials said. The exchange of fire into the Yellow Sea followed Pyongyangs sudden announcement that it would conduct live-fire drills in seven areas north of the Koreas disputed maritime boundary. North Korea routinely test-fires artillery and missiles into the ocean but rarely discloses those plans in advance. The announcement was seen as an expression of Pyongyangs frustration at making little progress in its recent push to win outside aid. North Korea fired 500 rounds of artillery shells over more than three hours, about 100 of which fell south of the sea boundary, South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok said. South Korea responded by firing 300 shells into North Korean waters, he said. No shells from either side were fired at any land or military installations, but Kim called the Norths artillery firing a provocation aimed at testing Seouls security posture. There was no immediate comment from North Korea. In Washington, White House spokesman Jonathan Lalley called North Koreas actions dangerous and provocative and said they would further aggravate tensions in the region. Mondays exchange was relatively mild in the history of animosity and violence between the Koreas, but there is worry in Seoul that an increasingly dissatisfied North Korea could repeat the near-daily barrage of war rhetoric it carried out last spring, when tensions soared as Pyongyang threatened nuclear strikes on Washington and Seoul in response to condemnation of its third nuclear test. Residents on front-line South Korean islands spent several hours in shelters during the firing, and officials temporarily halted ferry service linking the islands to the mainland. Kang Myeong-sung, speaking from a shelter on Yeonpyeong island, which is in sight of North Korean territory, said he didnt hear any fighter jets but heard the boom of artillery fire. The poorly marked western sea boundary has been the scene of several bloody naval skirmishes between the Koreas in recent years. In March 2010, a South Korean warship sank in the area following a torpedo attack blamed on Pyongyang that left 46 sailors dead. North Korea denies responsibility for the sinking. In November 2010, a North Korean artillery bombardment killed four South Koreans on Yeonpyeong. Health care sign-ups hit deadline Associated PressWASHINGTON In a flood of last-minute signups, hundreds of thousands of Americans rushed to apply for health insurance Monday, but deadline day for President Barack Obamas overhaul brought long, frustrating waits and a new spate of website ills. This is like trying to find a parking spot at Walmart on Dec.23, said Jason Stevenson, working with a Utah nonprofit group helping people enroll. At times, more than 125,000 people were simultaneously using HealthCare.gov, straining it beyond its capacity. For long stretches Monday, applicants were shuttled to a virtual waiting room where they could leave an email address and be contacted later. Officials said the site had not crashed but was experiencing very heavy volume. The website, which was receiving 1.5million visitors a day last week, had recorded about 1.6million through 2 p.m. Supporters of the health care law fanned out across the country in a final dash to sign up uninsured Americans. People not signed up for health insurance by the deadline, either through their jobs or on their own, were subject to being fined by the IRS, and that threat was helping drive the final dash. The administration announced last week that people still in line by midnight would get extra time to enroll. The website stumbled early in the day out of service for nearly four hours as technicians patched a software bug. Another hiccup in early afternoon temporarily kept new applicants from signing up, and then things slowed further. Overwhelmed by computer problems when launched last fall, the system has been working much better in recent months, but independent testers said it still runs slowly. The insurance markets or exchanges offer subsidized private health insurance to people who dont have access to coverage through their jobs. Russia pulls back from Ukraine border Associated PressSIMFEROPOL, Crimea Russia said Monday it was pulling a battalion of several hundred troops away from the Ukrainian border but kept tens of thousands in place, prompting a worried response from the Kiev government about what the U.S. warned was still a tremendous buildup. Strengthening its economic hold on Crimea, Russia sent its prime minister to Crimea on Monday with promises of quick funds for improved power supplies, water lines, education and pensions for the elderly. Russias takeover of the strategic Black Sea peninsula, its troop buildup near Ukraines border and its attempts to compel constitutional changes in Ukraine have markedly raised tensions with the West and prompted fears that Moscow intends to invade other areas of the neighboring nation. However, Russian President Vladimir Putin told German Chancellor Angela Merkel in a Monday phone call that some troops were being withdrawn from the Ukraine border, Merkels office said. The U.S. reacted cautiously to the Russian troop movement, with Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel saying tens of thousands of Russian forces still remained along the Ukrainian border, a situation he called a tremendous buildup. The new government in Ukraine said the action was confusing at best and possibly disingenuous. We have information that Russia is carrying out incomprehensible maneuvers on the border with Ukraine, Ukrainian Foreign Ministry spokes man Yevgen Perebyinis said. Troops in some places are moving backward, some of them are moving forward. Which is why, obviously, we are worried by these movements of armed forces. We have no clear explanation from the Russian side about the aim of these movements.

Baseball/ B2 Scoreboard/B3 Flag football/B3 Lottery, TV/B3 College basketball/ B4 NBA/ B4 NHL/B4 AP announces All-America college hoops teams./B4 SPORTSSection BTUESDAY, APRIL 1, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Price outpitches Dickey, Rays top Blue Jays Tampa Bay rolls to 9-2 victory in season opener Associated PressST. PETERSBURG The Tampa Bay Rays raised another playoff banner to the roof at Tropicana Field, then went out and played like a team expecting to make another run at a postseason berth. David Price set the tone by taking a shutout into the eighth inning, Desmond Jennings made a diving catch for the first out of the season, and Evan Longoria, Wil Myers and Matt Joyce delivered timely hits Monday as the Rays opened with a 9-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. It feels good to go out and get the ball rolling in the right direction, Price said. The hard-throwing lefty allowed two runs and six hits over 7 1/3 innings to beat R.A. Dickey in a matchup of 2012 Cy Young Award winners. The Tampa Bay ace walked one and struck out six before a crowd of 31,042 the Rays ninth consecutive sellout for a home opener. Before the game, the Rays raised a banner in left field in celebration of earning an AL wildcard spot last season. Senior baseball advisor Don Zimmer, beginning his 66th year in baseball, took part in the festivities, riding onto the field in golf cart and getting a hug from manager Joe Maddon and each Tampa Bay starter when the lineups were announced. Joyce drove in three runs with a sacrifice fly and two-run double off Dickey (0-1), who yielded six two-out runs in five innings. Longoria got the Rays going with a first-inning RBI single and Myers drove in two more when he singled with the bases loaded in the second. Price, meanwhile, limited the Blue Jays to four singles and had only allowed two runners past second base before Maicer Izturis opened the eighth with his second hit of the day.

See RAYS/ Page B3 MATT PFIFFNER /ChronicleLecanto shortstop Nathan Hines, right, is congratulated Monday by starting pitcher Daniel Coutu (20) after scoring during a six-run first inning for the Panthers against Seven Rivers Christian. The Panthers won 13-0 in five innings. Lecanto roughs up previously undefeated Warriors in county clash Pirates move on Handful of CR netters reach todays district playJAMESBLEVINS CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER The first round of the 2014 District 2A-7 boys and girls tennis tournament started early Monday morning and went for well over 12 hours at the Crystal River Pirates home courts. By the end of the first round of competition, host Crystal River found itself moving some players forward to the second and final round, taking place today, which is a nice change from last years tournament when no Pirate players on the boys team at least advanced to the final round. This year the Pirate boys were able to get both doubles teams into todays semifinal matches. Were hanging in there through a really long day, boys head coach Bill Reyes said. We got here over 13 hours ago and we had a good time and were still alive (in the tournament). No hiccups, no malfunctions, no major issues, Reyes continued. Just a whole lot of tennis, and some success I still got some guys hanging in there for tomorrow. On the girls side of things, the SEANARNOLD CorrespondentLECANTO A rare meeting between a pair of Lecanto baseball clubs Monday night brought about a couple of anomalies. For the first time this season, the Panthers played a game decided by more than four runs. Meanwhile, Seven Rivers Christian suffered its first loss on the season, falling 13-0 in five innings at Lecanto High School. LHS (7-8 overall) got going early and often, as it batted around while jumping to a 6-0 advantage in the first inning behind three hits, three walks, two passed balls, a wild pitch and a fielding error. Panthers third baseman Levi OSteen ripped a two-run double to leftcenter field during the rally, and added a walk, a single, and another double to finish the night 3 for 3 with three runs and three RBIs. Shortstop Nathan Hines also went 3 for 3, helping Lecantos top five hitters combine for 10 hits, five walks and 11 runs, with at least two coming every inning. Senior Jacob Schenck, one of the countys leading hitters for average, added two base hits and two RBIs, and Panther leadoff hitter Caleb Southey walked twice, stole three bases and knocked an RBI double to left-center. Sophomore Danny Coutu made the best of his offensive support, fanning one in five shutout innings while allowing three walks and one hit a secondinning single to right by eighth-grader Coy Phillips. A pair of infield errors and a walk loaded the bases for the Warriors (13-1) with no outs in the fourth, before a couple of line-outs, including a double-play at third by OSteen, kept SRCS off the board. Our team had to run poles during pre-game because they were going through the motions, LHS coach Dave Logue said. They responded well. Danny battled and threw strikes, and we got some big hits from Levi. Nate (Hines) has been doing a great job since our game at Crystal River. When games are closer, it seems like younger players try to be the hero instead of everybody doing their job one hit and one base at a time. When it goes like it did tonight, you can do a lot of good things. Junior Cory Weiand, who entered the game having allowed just one earned run, gave up four in the first before making way for Phillips later in the inning. I would say we came in a little too over-amped, first-year SRCS coach Jon Bolin said. We didnt let the game come to us, and made some fast-brain mistakes. Youre going to have nights like this, you just have to learn to forget about it and get back out there tomorrow. Its a test of how to deal with adversity. Seven Rivers is at Ocala St. John Lutheran 6 p.m. tonight for a District 2A-3 matchup. Lecanto travels to Ocala Forest tonight, and plays at Dunnellon Wednesday for a District 5A-6 meeting. Seven Rivers Christian catcher Carson Pillsbury looks to make a throw down to first base Monday as Warrior starting pitcher Cory Weiand watches the action. Citrus tops Warriors C.J. RISAK CorrespondentINVERNESS Seven Rivers Christian struck quickly. Citrus responded just as fast. In a softball clash between the countys two regular-season district champions, the first two batters for Seven Rivers stroked hits, Kim Iwaniec following Alexis Kings lead-off double with a run-producing single to put the Warriors up 1-0. But Citrus followed by scoring four times in the bottom of the first, adding two more in the fourth and then finishing everything off with a three-run sixth en route to a 10-1 romp Monday. Rachel Martin, who had been unable to pitch since breaking the little finger on her non-pitching hand over three weeks ago, regained her composure after that somewhat shaky start to work all seven innings for Citrus and allow just that one earned run on four hits and three walks, with 10 strikeouts. Tessa Kacer pitched all six innings for Seven Rivers and surrendered 10 runs (nine earned) on 10 hits and four walks, striking out four. We wanted to give her some work in the circle and she responded great, for not having pitched in over three weeks, said Citrus coach See CITRUS/ Page B3 See PIRATES/ Page B3
Associated PressBALTIMORE Nelson Cruz celebrated his Orioles debut by hitting a tiebreaking home run in the seventh inning and Baltimore beat Jon Lester and the defending World Series champion Boston Red Sox 2-1 Monday before an appreciative sellout crowd on opening day. Signed as a free agent in February, Cruz lined a solo shot into the left-field seats to put the Orioles ahead. He hit 27 homers last year with Texas during a season marred by a 50-game suspension from Major League Baseball in the Biogenesis drug scandal. After missing two seasons recovering from knee surgery, Bostons Grady Sizemore marked his return from a 922-day absence with a second-inning single. He also hit his first home run since July 15, 2011. Zach Britton (1-0) got the win with two scoreless innings of relief and Tommy Hunter worked the ninth for his first save. Lester (0-1) gave up two runs in seven innings.AMERICAN LEAGUE Tigers 4, Royals 3DETROIT Alex Gonzalez drove in the winning run in his Detroit debut, lining a single to left off Greg Holland in the ninth inning that gave the Tigers a 4-3 opening-day victory over the Kansas City Royals. Acquired by Detroit following an injury to shortstop Jose Iglesias, Gonzalez made a costly error in Kansas Citys three-run fourth but made up for that with a tying triple in the seventh. He then singled with men on first and third in the ninth. Joe Nathan (1-0) pitched a scoreless ninth in his first appearance for the Tigers. Wade Davis (0-1) allowed a one-out walk to Alex Avila and a single to Nick Castellanos in the ninth. Holland couldnt escape the jam.White Sox 5, Twins 3CHICAGO Alejandro De Aza hit two homers, and Jose Abreu had two hits in his major league debut to back Chris Sale and lead the Chicago White Sox to a 5-3 season-opening victory over the Minnesota Twins. Sale got the win, pitching five-hit ball into the eighth. Paul Konerko got a loud ovation before what was likely his final opener, although he wasnt in the lineup. The White Sox started the season with a win after losing 99 games last season. Abreu doubled on the first pitch he saw leading off the second inning against Ricky Nolasco and scored on De Azas two-run homer to give Chicago a 2-0 lead. He also drove in the go ahead run with a single during a two-run third after Minnesotas Kurt Suzuki tied it with a two-run single in the top half.NATIONAL LEAGUE Brewers 2, Braves 0MILWAUKEE Brewers star Ryan Braun drew a standing ovation in his return from a drug suspension, then was ruled out in the first call overturned under baseballs expanded replay system as Milwaukee beat the Atlanta Braves 2-0 in the season opener. Braun went 1 for 4 and stole a base in the fourth inning that helped set up a two-run double by Aramis Ramirez. A smattering of boos during Brauns first at-bat was easily drowned out by the overwhelming applause. The former MVP was suspended for the final 65 games last year in the Biogenesis doping scandal. Braun had his infield single to lead off the sixth overturned to out after the call was challenged by Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez under Major League Baseballs new replay format. Yovani Gallardo (1-0) tossed six shutout innings for the win and Francisco Rodriguez got a save. Julio Teheran (0-1) took the loss.Marlins 10, Rockies 1MIAMI Jose Fernandez looked just as good as he did last year in the season opener, and the Miami Marlins batting order looked much improved. Fernandez struck out nine and allowed one run in six innings, and Marlins newcomer Casey McGehee drove in four runs with two doubles to help Miami beat the Colorado Rockies 10-1. The sellout crowd of 37,116 was the largest yet at Marlins Park, which opened two years ago. The 21-year-old Fernandez earned the victory while becoming the youngest NL opening-day starter since Dwight Gooden in 1986, according to STATS. And he picked up where he left off last season, when he went 12-6 and was voted NL Rookie of the Year. The right-handers strikeout total matched Josh Becketts team record for an opener. Fernandez threw 73 strikes and only 21 balls to 23 batters.Pirates 1, Cubs 0, 10 inn.PITTSBURGH Neil Walker homered off Carlos Villanueva leading off the 10th inning, and the Pittsburgh Pirates benefited from an overturned to call to beat the Chicago Cubs 1-0 on opening day. Walkers first career game-ending homer easily cleared the Clemente Wall while his teammates rushed onto the field in celebration. It was the first opening-day walkoff homer for the Pirates since Bob Baileys off San Franciscos Juan Marichal in a 1-0 victory in 1965. Reliever Bryan Morris (1-0) won with the help of an overturned pickoff call in the top of the 10th. Starter Francisco Liriano and four relievers combined for 11 strikeouts. Emilio Bonifacio went 4 for 5 for Chicago, but the Cubs were 0 for 11 with runners in scoring position and wasted a fine start by Jeff Samardzija, who scattered five hits over seven innings.Nationals 9, Mets 7, 10 inn.NEW YORK Anthony Rendon hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning and drove in a career-high four runs, twice rallying the Washington Nationals against the New York Mets suspect bullpen for a 9-7 opening-day victory. Denard Span hit a tying double with two outs in the ninth off closer Bobby Parnell, and Ian Desmond put the Nationals in front for the first time with a sacrifice fly in the 10th. Rendon connected two batters later against former Washington pitcher John Lannan, securing a win for Matt Williams in his first game as a major league manager. Stephen Strasburg struck out 10 over six innings in his third straight opening-day start. But he fell behind early and was outpitched most of the day by starter Dillon Gee.Cardinals 1, Reds 0CINCINNATI Yadier Molinas homer broke a seventh-inning tie and drew another round of loud boos while he rounded the bases, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 1-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds were blanked on opening day for the first time since 1953, ending the second-longest streak of scoring at least one run in season openers in major league history. The Phillies went 62 years without being blanked in an opener from 1911-72. Adam Wainwright used his refined sinker to finally get the best of the Reds, who have hit him like no other team. Wainwright allowed three hits in seven innings, fanning nine. Trevor Rosenthal retired all three batters in the ninth, finishing a threehitter for the defending National League champions.INTERLEAGUE Phillies 14, Rangers 10ARLINGTON, Texas Jimmy Rollins hit a grand slam and pinchhitter John Mayberry Jr. had a two-run double that put Philadelphia ahead to stay in a wild opening 14-10 victory over the Texas Rangers. Cliff Lee (1-0) matched his career high by allowing eight runs and struck out only one, but the left-hander made it through five innings in another lessthan-stellar opener for him in the Rangers home ballpark. Marlon Byrd and Cody Asche also homered for the Phillies. Converted Rangers reliever Tanner Scheppers gave up seven runs over four innings, including the slam by Rollins that made it 6-0 in the second. But the game was tied when Scheppers threw his last pitch.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Larry Bishop of Martins performance, which allowed the Hurricanes to improve to 16-4 overall. She gave us a strong set of seven innings. She was spot on tonight, we were very happy with her. Five of Citrus first six batters reached base in the first, with Jordan Josey singling in two runs, another run scoring on a dropped ball on a strikeout, and a fourth on Lauren Meadows double. The Hurricanes added two more in the fourth, the first on Alyssa Nathans double and the second on Anna Savoies single. A dropped fly ball allowed Erica Corlew to score in the fifth for Citrus, making it 7-1, and in the bottom of the sixth, Nathan singled in a pair of runs and Amy Abramowich doubled in another for the final margin of victory. Citrus is a good team, said Seven Rivers coach Gary Dreyer, his team now 10-3 overall, two of those losses coming against Citrus. Im proud of our girls, they played well. What I liked is they didnt give up, and thats what we want them to do, to not give up. Theyre a 5A team and, if you look at the scores of some of their other games then this isnt that bad. I like playing this team, I dont like losing, but they play the game the right way. We have nothing to be ashamed of. For Citrus, Nathan had two hits and three runs batted in and Savoie added two hits and an RBI. King had two hits for Seven Rivers. Seven Rivers hosts Academy of the Lakes the only other team to beat the Warriors tonight while Citrus meets Lake Weir Wednesday.

Good for us and for him. Hes put so much into preparation for this season. ... Its validation of what hes done to get ready. The 28-year-old lefty became the Rays first 20-game winner and edged Justin Verlander in AL Cy Young balloting two years ago. He got off to a slow start in 2013, but finished strong after spending more than a month on the disabled list, leading the majors in innings, complete games and fewest walks per nine innings after July 2. The Rays also won three times last year in games involving matchups of Cy Young winners, with Price beating Dickey on May 9 and CC Sabathia on Aug. 24, as well as going nine innings against Tim Lincecum without getting a decision in an extra-innings victory over the Giants on Aug. 3. Dickey allowed six runs, five hits and walked six over five innings. RAYSContinued from Page B1 Pirates turn tables on Hurricanes 21-12 DAVIDPIEKLIK CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER Crystal River won its second straight game in girls flag football with a 21-12 win Monday over Citrus. Shirley Kortendicks scoring run near the beginning of the fourth quarter iced the victory for the Pirates (2-3), who are on a win streak after starting the season 0-3. The team looked much improved than the one that lost the season opener 19-6 to the Hurricanes (2-1). The Pirates defense tried preventing the long pass, especially to Micah Jenkins, whos been a favorite target of quarterback Sam Kanawall this season. Jenkins was able to haul in two touchdown receptions, but was shut down late in the game. Its pretty awesome because we really evolved. We were really bad at the start of the season, and now were getting to where we can be presentable and win hopefully every game that comes, Pirates receiver Alexis Priest said. It feels amazing because since we lost the first game, it feels great to actually beat our rival, freshman Shirley Kortendick added. I feel like were going to have a good end to the season. Jenkins caught a 28-yard pass from Kanawall with 3:07 left in the first half to give the Canes a 6-0 lead after an unsuccessful 1-point conversion attempt. At the end of the first half, Crystal River quarterback Savanah Miller connected with Priest for a 15-yard game-tying touchdown pass. A successful 1-point conversion gave the Pirates a 7-6 lead. The teams traded scores with a short run by Kortendick and subsequent 1-point conversion, and Jenkins second touchdown catch. Citrus was unsuccessful on a 2-point conversion attempt, leaving the score 14-12. On the ensuing possession with two minutes left in the game, the Pirates ran the ball to eat up clock, with Kortendick running a perfect fake reverse. After taking the ball from Miller, she made like she was going to hand the ball off to teammate Jasmyne Eason a popular team play and instead tucked the ball and ran down the near sideline. The Canes defense fell for the fake and Kortendick picked up a 15-yard gain to the Citrus 7. On the very next play, she hauled in a pass toward the back of the endzone for the final score. After its defense prevented a last second desperation drive by the Canes, Pirates players mobbed each other in celebration as time expired, jokingly giving one of their coaches a Gatorade shower. Panthers blank RamsThe Lecanto flag football team evened its record to 2-2 on the season with a 44-0 drubbing of Tampa Bay Christian Academy Monday at home. Stephanie Bandstra scored three touchdowns to lead the Panther attack. She had one receiving, one rushing and one interception return for a score. Maya Shah also returned an interception for a touchdown, while Fabiola Andrade, Anabel Marchildon and Rebekah Paprzycki each had one touchdown. The Panthers are back in action Thursday at home against Crystal River.From staff reports

He is now among some very select company. The senior forward from Creighton was a unanimous choice for The Associated Press AllAmerica team on Monday. He is the first three-time choice in 29 years and the 11th player overall. McDermott, who led the nation in scoring at 26.9 points a game, joins Oscar Robertson, Lew Alcindor, Pete Maravich and Bill Walton among others. The last three-time All-Americas were Patrick Ewing of Georgetown and Wayman Tisdale of Oklahoma from 1982-85. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine being with names of that caliber, McDermott said. Truly an honor to be an All-American three straight years. Its hard to wrap my mind around being in the company of those guys. McDermott was one of four seniors on this years team, which included freshman Jabari Parker of Duke. The other seniors all came from the first-year American Athletic Conference: Russ Smith of Louisville, Shabazz Napier of Connecticut and Sean Kilpatrick of Cincinnati. Its the first time one conference had three players picked since the Atlantic Coast Conference in 200102 with Dukes Shane Battier and Jason Williams and North Carolinas Joseph Forte. McDermott received 65 firstteam votes and 325 points from the same national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25. Parker drew 55 first-team votes and was second with 303 points. Smith had 54 first-team votes and 298 points, 44 more than Napier, who got 37 first-team votes. Kilpatrick was a first-team pick 37 times and had 243 points. The voting was done on Selection Sunday. McDermott led Creighton to a successful first season in the Big East but the Bluejays lost by 30 points to Baylor in the third round of the NCAA tournament. You cant take away from what we did this year. We made some noise in the first year of the Big East, and we beat some great teams and got a three seed for the first time in school history, he said. All that is very special, something well never forget. The 6-foot-8 McDermott averaged 7.0 rebounds and shot 52.5 percent from the field and 45.4 percent from 3-point range. McDermott considered leaving for the NBA after last season. Ive been blessed to coach him 33 more times this year than I thought I was going to, Greg McDermott, his father and coach, said before the NCAA tournament. This year has been so much fun. Its been such a privilege as a father to be able to sit on the sideline and watch your son do what Dougs done over the course of this season. Arguably he had more expectations on him than any player in the country, and he was able to answer every critic in the world with his play and our teams play. Parker was one of the heralded freshmen this season, and he was the one who crashed the seniors All-America party. The 6-8 native of Chicago averaged 19.3 points and 8.8 rebounds, taking over the scoring load for the Blue Devils down the stretch of the season. He is the first Duke first-teamer since Nolan Smith in 2010-11 and the first freshman since Anthony Davis of Kentucky two years ago. Being named AP All-American is as high an honor as you can get because it covers the whole country, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. Jabari had a great year and for him to be recognized like that is quite an accomplishment for him and our program. Smith brought the term Russdiculous into the national spotlight as he followed his national championship season with Louisville by averaging 18.3 points, 3.4 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 2.1 steals while shooting 40.5 percent from 3-point range. There was a lot of speculation that Smith was going to leave after his junior season. Its a lot of things in the back of your mind, as far as, will you get hurt, is it the right decision, will you get drafted, will you make money? Smith said. But at the end of the day, it was important for me to get my education and get my degree and finish out my senior year out on a good note. Napier led Connecticut in scoring (17.4), rebounds (5.9) and assists (4.9) and it was his buzzer-beating jumper that gave the Huskies the win over Florida on Dec. 2, the Gators last loss. Napier was the leader of a team that managed to reach the Final Four after being picked as a No. 7 seed. Hes been great, Huskies coach Kevin Ollie said. If it wasnt for him and his wining mindset we wouldnt be where we are. For him to share the spotlight with his teammates meant a lot to us all season. He is the Huskies first AllAmerica since Kemba Walker in 2010-11. Napier and Walker are close friends, and Napier said it would definitely be cool to share the news with his mentor. Kilpatrick, Cincinnatis first AllAmerica since Steve Logan in 200102, averaged 20.7 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.6 assists for the Bearcats, who shared the Americans regular-season title. Kilpatrick joined Oscar Robertson as the only Cincinnati players to score 2,000 points. When you have to mention such a Hall of Fame guy like Oscar Robertson and what hes done at the university, now you have to mention my name as well. he said. I appreciate it a lot. Nick Johnson of Arizona was the leading vote-getter on the second team and was joined by freshman Andrew Wiggins of Kansas, Nik Stauskas of Michigan, Melvin Ejim of Iowa State and T.J. Warren of North Carolina State. All-America honorsSee Page B3 for the entire list of 2013-14 AP AllAmerica honorees.

But what people often neglect is actually right in front of our eyes our vision. Properly caring for your eyes is important for preventing vision loss and blindness, as well as protecting your overall health. As with many other aspects of personal healthcare, routine exams and preventive measures go a long way to ensuring healthy vision and h elp ing you see well for a lifetime. The experts at the National Eye Institute recommend following these five steps to take care of your eyes and protect your visio n. Getacomprehensive dilatedeyeexam You might think your vision is fine or that your eyes are healthy, but visiting your eye care professional for a comprehensive dilated eye exam is the only way to really be sure. When it comes to common vision problems, some people dont realize they could see better with glasses or contact lenses. In addition, many com mon eye diseases, such as glaucoma, diabetic eye disease and age-related macular degeneration, often have no warning signs. A dilated eye exam is the only way to detect these diseases in their early stages. During a comprehensive dilated eye exam, your eye care professional places drops in your eyes to dilate, or widen, the pupil to allow more light to enter the eye. This enables your eye care profes sional to get a good look at the back of the eyes and examine them for any signs of damage or disease. LiveahealthylifestyleLiving an overall healthy life is good for your eyes. This includes:Maintaining a healthy weight Being overweight or obese increases your risk of developing diabetes and other health problems that can lead to vision loss, such as diabetic eye disease or glaucoma. Eating healthy foods Youve heard carrots are good for your eyes, but eating a diet rich in other fruits and vegetables, particularly dark leafy greens, such as spinach, kale or collard greens, is important for keeping your eyes healthy, too. Research also has shown there are eye health benefits from eating fish high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, tuna and halibut.Not smoking Smoking is as bad for your eyes as it is for the rest of your body. Research has linked smoking to an increased risk of developing age-related macular degeneration or cataract, both of which can lead to blindness.Managing chronic conditions Many conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, and multiple sclerosis, can greatly impact vision, resulting in inflammation of the optic nerve, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and even vision loss. Managing these conditions with the help of your health care provider can often prevent blindness.

For decades, a cancer diagnosis was associated with almost certain death. Over the past few decades, tremendous strides have been achieved in the battle of cancer, and today, many patients will be cured of their disease, or with proper treatment, will live for a substantial amount of time. Despite these improvements, a cancer diagnosis still carries a tremendous psychological burden that patients and their families must deal with. Even when a remission or cure has been obtained, the slightest ache or pain can initiate a cascade of thoughts dealing with the possibility of a recurrence of their cancer. Every cancer patient will deal with his or her disease in a unique fashion. Overall, it is remarkable how well most cancer patients deal with their diagnosis despite the severe stress it places on them and their families. Most cancer patients are initially in a state of disbelief or denial regarding their diagnosis. This is followed by a state of dysphoria, generally a feeling of unpleasantness. During this phase of dysphoria, patients may notice anxiety, depression, loss of appetite, difficulty sleeping and easy irritability. Concentration can often be impaired and this interferes with short-term memory, which is often frustrating to these patients. After this, patients begin to adapt to their diagnosis and disease, focus on their therapy and begin to resume the normal activities of their lives. There certainly is no set time line for experiencing these stages of a cancer diagnosis, but every patient will confront them in their own fashion and in their own time. If a patient has had difficulty coping with stressful issues in the past, one can certainly expect them to have difficulty dealing with the diagnosis of cancer. Often this can be further complicated by family, financial, or insurance problems, and must be monitored very carefully. As a patient and their family move through the various stages of a cancer diagnosis and treatment, they will encounter crisis points which are more difficult to cope with. It is at this time that the support of friends and family is of utmost importance. About 20 percent of cancer patients will become severely depressed, and will require aggressive therapy. Surprisingly, the incidence of severe depression in cancer patients is really no greater than that found in patients suffering from other medical problems. The site of the cancer or the type of the cancer does not seem to be related to the incidence of depression in these patients either. Physicians and family members must look for signs of depression and treat patients accordingly when this diagnosis is established. Psychotherapy, behavior therapy and group therapy will all help the patient focus on dealing with their diagnosis and problems. Group meetings or support groups can be extremely beneficial to some patients, while others are uncomfortable sharing their problems and thoughts with a large group of people. Finally, antidepressants are often very effective in managing these symptoms at doses lower than that seen with typical depression. Unfortunately, antidepressant therapy is very often underutilized in cancer patients. In summary, depression is a common finding in patients with a diagnosis of cancer. Physicians and family members must look for these symptoms and assist with obtaining help and treatment for these individuals when signs of depression are seen.Dr. Bennett is a board certified radiation oncologist.

Joseph BennettNAVIGATING CANCER SUPPORT ORGANIZATIONS See SUPPORT/ Page C4 New drug treats Parkinsons QUESTION: I heard that a new drug was approved for people with Parkinsons disease. What can you tell me about it? ANSWER: The FDA recently approved Northera (droxidopa) to treat a rare, chronic condition known as neurogenic orthostatic hypotension (NOH) that can occur in people with Parkinsons disease and some other disorders. NOH can cause a sharp drop in blood pressure when a person gets up from bed or a chair, which can result in dizziness, falls, or even loss of consciousness. Northera or droxidopa, is known as an oral prodrug that is changed in the body to norepinephrine, a chemical that narrows (constricts) blood vessels and raises blood pressure. Northera is taken orally three times a day: upon arising in the morning; midday; and late afternoon at least 3 to 4 hours prior to bedtime. Other nondrug measures that can be taken to try and prevent NOH include getting up slowly, raising the head of the bed, keeping the blood volume expanded by increasing salt and water intake, and using compression stockings. The effectiveness of Northera was shown through two-weeks in two clinical trials in people with NOH. People taking Northera reported a decrease in dizziness, lightheadedness, feeling faint, or feeling as if they might black out compared to those taking an inactive pill (placebo). The improvement in patient symptoms beyond two weeks has not been demonstrated in clinical studies, but droxidopa has been used in Japan to treat NOH since 1989. The most common adverse events reported by clinical trial participants taking Northera were headache, dizziness, nausea, high blood pressure (hypertension) and fatigue. However, Northera has a boxed warning to alert health care professionals and patients about the risk of increased blood pressure while lying down (supine hypertension), a common problem that affects people with NOH and can cause stroke. It is essential that patients be reminded that they must sleep with their head and upper body elevated. Supine blood pressure should be monitored prior to and during treatment and more frequently when increasing doses. The manufacturer of Northera is planning to conduct a large post-approval study to assess its long-term safety and effectiveness.Richard P. Hoffmann, Pharm.D., is a retired pharmacist with more than 40 years of experience. He currently serves on the FDA Advisory Committee for Peripheral and Central Nervous System Drugs and is a Research Advocate for the Parkinsons Disease Foundation (PDF). Richard P. HoffmanASK THE PHARMACIST April Is Parkinsons Disease Awareness Month Special to the ChronicleApril has been designated Parkinsons disease (PD) awareness month. James Parkinson, who was born in the month of April, was the English physician who first clinically defined this condition in 1817 and called it the Shaking Palsy. Since then, neurologists have classified PD as a movement disorder, characterized by four key movement (motor) symptoms that include the shaking (tremor) described by Dr. Parkinson in addition to muscle rigidity and stiffness, slowness of movement (bradykinesia), and impaired balance and coordination (postural instability). In the 1960s it was discovered that these motor symptoms were caused by the death and malfunction of nerve cells in a section of the brain that produces a chemical called dopamine. This chemical sends messages that control movement and coordination. However, more recently it has been determined that many other parts of the brain and nervous system are affected by this chronic and progressively disabling disorder. See APRIL/Page C3
Today, PD is considered much more than just a movement disorder. Nonmotor symptoms of this disease may include pain, dementia or confusion, fatigue, sleep disturbances, dizziness, depression, constipation, cognitive changes, fear and anxiety, and urinary problems. Like many other neurological disorders, the cause(s) of PD are not known, but both environment and genetic factors are thought to be involved. There currently is no cure for PD, but numerous medications and other treatment options, including surgery, are available to improve symptoms and the quality of life for people with this disease. While the average age of onset for PD is 60 years, many individuals are diagnosed in their 50s and 40s, or even younger. It is estimated that nearly 1.5 million Americans are living with PD and approximately 60,000 Americans are newly diagnosed each year. There are several national organizations that can provide you with more information, one of which is the Parkinsons Disease Foundation (PDF), which can be found at www.pdf.org or by phone at 1-800-4576676.HEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, APRIL1, 2014 C3 000HGCS 000HTO9 Quality Mobility INC 609 SE U.S. HWY. 19 CRYSTAL RIVER (352) 564-1414 Life just got a little easier 4-Wheel Walkers $ 159 Quality Mobility INC WE ACCEPT MEDICARE AND MEDICAID FOR MOST MEDICAL EQUIPMENT AND UP In Stock Lung cancer in the United States kills more patients than any other cancer in the United States. It kills more people than breast, prostate and colon cancers combined. Lung cancer can be small cell or non-small cell (NSCLC) type, depending on the size of cancer cells seen under a microscope. The latter is much more common. Almost 70 to 80 percent of lung cancers are of non-small cell type. This type is curable if it treated by surgery when it is localized. Early detection is difficult and not very common. Recently, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has advised a screening CT scan of the chest to detect early lung cancers in smokers. Usually, once a lung mass is detected on a CT scan or chest X-ray, it is biopsied. If a biopsy shows NSCLC, doctors have to determine whether surgery is feasible or not. The determination is critical and not always easy. Once a patient is taken to surgery, if the surgeon finds out during surgery that the cancer is not resectable, he has to stop the operation. This causes unnecessary pain and suffering. Routine preoperative PET imaging led to a significant reduction in unnecessary surgery for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), a review of almost 1,000 cases showed. Overall, the rate of unnecessary operations, defined as discovery of metastatic disease during surgery, decreased by 13 percent. This study was published in the March issue of the Journal of Nuclear Medicine. Positron emission tomography (PET) is a test that uses a special type of camera and a tracer (radioactive chemical) to look at organs in the body. The tracer usually is a special form of a substance (such as glucose) that collects in cells that are using a lot of energy, such as cancer cells. In a patient with lung cancer, a CT scan would show enlarged lymph nodes but it cannot say whether the cancer has spread to those lymph nodes or not. If lung cancer spreads to lymph nodes between two lungs (mediastinum), it is usually unresectable. When cancer spreads there, usually those lymph nodes eventually get bigger, but not always. A CT scan would show the size of those nodes but cannot say whether there is cancer in it or not. A PET scan would show cancer even in small lymph nodes because those nodes would pick up more tracer. If we find out preoperatively, that cancer has spread to the lymph nodes in mediastinum, unnecessary surgery can be avoided. This saves lots of pain and suffering.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist. He is the volunteer medical adviser of the Citrus Unit of American Cancer Society. Write to 521 N.

The Circle of Love, 1 to 2:30p.m. WEEKLY SUPPORT GROUPS See WEEKLY / Page C6 Dizziness (vestibular problems) is one of the most common complaints that patients tell their doctors about. About 40 percent of adults experience some sort of dizziness or balance problems sometime in their lives. Headaches are a common cause for dizziness. Migraine is a known type of headache, but few people realize that dizziness can be caused by migraine-like conditions. The term used to describe this problem is vestibular migraine. Dizziness, like headaches, can be straightforward and easily explained, but sometimes cause and explanation are more elusive. Vestibular migraines can be difficult to diagnose, as well as treat. Vestibular migraines usually come in multiple episodes and can be associated with a history of migraine headaches or a family history of migraine headaches. Typically an episode can last minutes to hours, and rarely, two or three days. Migraine headaches are often associated with a phenomenon called an aura, which is usually visual. Vestibular migraines can actually replace the headache altogether or be associated with the headache and are usually exacerbated or triggered by visual or environmental stimulus. An example would be a car moving past a patient quickly while theyre sitting in traffic. If there is a headache associated with it, as is typical with a migraine, it is usually a unilateral location, pulsing in quality and can be moderate or severe in intensity. It is aggravated by physical activity. The patient is comforted by sitting still, in a dark quiet place. Other highlights that might make a doctor suspicious for a vestibular migraine versus other types of dizziness include the fact that the dizziness is usually described as vague and nonspecific as opposed to room-spinning. Sometimes a history of seasickness or motion sickness in the past may be helpful information. Treatment is similar to migraine headaches you try to avoid triggers. This includes stress, fatigue, certain foods such as alcohol, caffeine and food additives like MSG. Treatment includes both behavioral methods, such as biofeedback, and medication, as well as medical intervention such as antidepressants and certain classifications of blood pressure pills, as well as motion sickness medication. Other options include balance, rehab therapy and also treating any psychiatric or anxiety issues that may accompany the vestibular migraine episodes. Research is ongoing as vestibular migraines remain a little bit elusive and we do not know all the details yet but at least we have a better understanding of the criteria to classify a vestibular migraine versus a generic type of dizziness and that will eventually lead to not only more accurate diagnosis but treatment, as well.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

MONTHLY SUPPORT GROUPS Backup dentures a good idea Q:I am a full denture wearer and very happy with my teeth. My concern is if the denture were to break, how long it would take to repair it? I have thought of having a backup denture made but didnt know if that was foolish. Can you shed some light on this for me? A: This is a good question one that I do not ever remember having in all the years I have written this column. The truth is that many people have a backup set of teeth. In many cases, it is the old set of dentures that is used as a backup once the new set is delivered. In a few instances, someone has asked me to make a backup set at the same time their new set is being made. This can be done for less than the cost of a completely new set of teeth, because all of the work and effort does not need to be duplicated. The time it takes to repair a denture depends on what broke. If it is as simple as a tooth coming out of the denture, it can often be replaced while the patient waits. Sometimes, it will take overnight, but rarely longer than that. If the denture splits in half, as some upper dentures do over time, you can expect an overnight repair or even longer. Broken clasps on a partial denture can also take an overnight repair. In some instances the denture may even need to be remade depending on where the metal broke. There are many repairs that I prefer be made by the lab that made the denture in the first place. Since the lab I use is out of state, the patient needs to wait even longer due to the time it takes for the case to get to the lab. I always overnight my cases, but that still adds a day to get there and a day to get back. Some might wonder why I would go through that trouble. It is simple. I have used the same lab for more than 20 years and they are incredible. It always amazes me how good they are in terms of consistency and quality. It is rare to find this in a dental lab, but the reality is it is unusual to find this in any trade these days. It seems like attention to details, pride in your work and consistency have all gone by the wayside. If you do not have a backup denture I would suggest getting one. You may never need to use it; however, if the time ever comes when you have to do without your denture for a few days or longer, you will be glad you had one made.

FITNESSContinued from Page C5 FDA reviews DNA-based cancer screening kits Associated PressWASHINGTON The Food and Drug Administration is weighing the benefits and risks of two experimental colon cancer screening tests which use DNA from a patients stool to detect dangerous tumors and growths. FDA scientists have questions about the accuracy and the potential realworld impact of the kits from Epigenomics and Exact Sciences, according to briefing documents posted online Monday. The agency released its reviews of the tests ahead of a twoday meeting that starts Wednesday. Doctors have long used stool tests to look for hidden blood that can be a warning sign of tumors and precancerous polyps. Colon cancer is usually treatable if growths are detected and removed before they multiply and spread to other parts of the body. Both tests under review were more accurate at detecting tumors and worrisome growths than traditional blood stool tests. However, both tests also returned more false positives reporting growths when none were actually present. In addition, the tests were less accurate in patients of certain racial and ethnic groups, including African-Americans. The FDA will ask a panel of experts whether the tests should have special warnings for those patients, among on other questions, at its meeting later this week. The agency is not required to follow such expert advice. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S., with over 50,000 deaths expected this year, according to the American Cancer Society. Deaths from the disease have been declining for more than two decades, a development attributed to increased screening in patients ages 50 to 75. Still, only about 60 percent of people in that age group have had recommended screenings. Colonoscopy is the most accurate test but many adults are reluctant to undergo the invasive procedure, which requires several hours under sedation as doctors probe the colon with a camera-fitted catheter. Guidelines Blood stool tests are less accurate but can be just as effective if used every year, according to a federally-appointed panel that sets testing recommendations. A positive result doesnt automatically mean a patient has cancer but is usually a red flag that leads to confirmatory testing via colonoscopy. Approving either of the new stool tests could reshuffle current testing practice, a fact reflected in the FDAs review. The agency suggests both tests would require additional follow-up studies to see how accurately they perform over several years. Neither company has offered instructions for how frequently patients should be tested with the technology, which is expected to be more expensive than traditional blood tests. An editorial by two doctors from the Department of Veterans Affairs addressed the cost question in last weeks issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. Only through a better understanding of other key factors, such as the screening interval, adherence, cost and diagnostic evaluation of positive results, can we determine the appropriate place for stool DNA testing on the screening menu, stated the authors, Dr. Douglas Robertson and Dr. Jason Dominitz. Neither author has any affiliation with the test makers. The journal published study results for Exact Sciences Cologuard test ahead of this weeks meeting. Exact Sciences Corp. is based in Madison, Wis. Cologuard appeared to be the more effective of the two tests, according to the FDAs analysis. The test accurately detected colorectal cancer 92 percent of the time in patients who had cancerous tumors. That was better than the 74 percent accuracy of the traditional blood stool test. In patients with precancerous polyps the test was accurate 42 percent of the time, compared with 24 percent for the blood test. However, Cologuard was less accurate at ruling out cancer in healthy patients. When the test cleared patients it was correct about 87 percent of time, less than the traditional test which accurately identified cancer-free patients 95 percent of the time. The FDA will ask its panelists what kind of followup instructions should be given to patients who test negative with Cologuard, so they dont presume they are cancer-free. Agency scientists express concern that patients could defer additional screening after a negative result indefinitely if insufficient advice on follow-up testing is provided. Benchmark analyst Jan Wald said the FDA review appeared positive for Exact Sciences. We believe that approval is as close to a done deal as any regulatory process can be, the analyst wrote in a note. Wald expressed less optimism about Epigenomics Epi proColon test, which did not meet all of its study goals. According to the FDA review, the Berlin-based companys test accurately detected cancer in 68 percent of patients with cancerous tumors. The test only successfully identified healthy patients 79 percent of the time, not good enough to meet the studys goal of achieving parity with traditional blood testing. FDA scientists warned that lower specificity could lead to an increase in the number of avoidable colonoscopies and adverse events associated with such invasive procedures. Neither company tested their product against the only FDA-approved DNA stool test currently on the market, ColoSure from LabCorp, which is based in Burlington, N.C.

Kayak winners Your skin protects the inside of your body from germs that cannot be seen. Germs can cause infection if you have a break in the skin. Anyone can get an infection, but people with diabetes, children having a growth spurt, people with open wounds or people with a weak immune system are at greatest risk. Specifically, people with diabetes may have poor blood circulation, which can cause scrapes, cuts or burns to heal slowly and become infected. High blood glucose leads to high levels of sugar in body tissues, causing bacteria to grow and infections to develop more quickly. Also, because of nerve damage in hands and feet, a person with diabetes may not notice a cut or break in the skin until after it becomes infected. Skin infections cant always be prevented, but heeding the following advice can make them less likely to occur. People with dry, itchy skin that cracks easily should always clean and dry skin thoroughly, paying special attention to cuts or areas of irritation on feet. Moisturize skin regularly. This helps prevent dry skin from developing cracks in which infection can grow. Monitor skin regularly for dry patches and skin cracks. If found, clean and moisturize the area, then treat with antibiotic ointment and bandages, as necessary. Caring for blisters and calluses the same way is equally important because they also can get infected. Cuts and scrapes need to be treated properly because an infected wound can lead to serious complications. Clean the injury with soap and water or an antiseptic wash applied with sterile gauze pads. Apply an antibiotic ointment and cover the area with nonstick gauze pads to protect and cushion. Any time you have a cut or scrape with signs of infection (red and swollen skin around a wound, drainage or a foul odor, warm skin around the wound, fever higher than 100.4 degrees, or sweating or chills), call your doctor. By paying attention to your skin and keeping a watchful eye on scrapes, cuts or burns, you can protect yourself from painful symptoms and serious complications.

TUESDAY, APRIL1, 2014 C9CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Khalil Gibran, a Lebanese artist, poet and writer who died in 1931, said, The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind. I must remember that. Look at the North and South hands. After East opens one spade, South ends in three notrump. West leads a low spade. What should declarer do? A one-no-trump overcall shows about 15.517.5 points a tad stronger than a one-notrump opening because it is a dangerous bid to make. If the responder has a good hand, he will double for penalty, and unless the overcallers partner has a long suit in which to seek refuge, the penalty could be sizable. Note Wests lead. When a defender has not supported partners suit, giving length information is more important than strength information. Leading a low card is a singleton or from at least three. (If West has raised, so is known to have length, he applies BoSToN: Bottom of Something, Top of Nothing.) South starts with six top tricks: two spades (given the lead), three hearts and one club. He needs to establish three diamond winners. Next, he should check the high-card points. Dummy has 10 and declarer holds 16. That leaves 14 for the opponents. Since East opened the bidding, he clearly has the diamond ace. South should take the first trick, play a heart to dummys ace, lead a diamond to his king, return a diamond, and play low from the dummy. When Easts ace appears, declarer has his nine tricks.

R SalemMother Dear Annie: As a registered nurse and a patient who has had many dental procedures, I cringe every time I get into a dentists chair. The reason is the overhead light the one that the hygienist or dentist can adjust and lower. The hygienists and dentists wear gloves, but the gloves protect them, not the patient. They put their gloved hands in patients mouths and then reach up and adjust the light as needed, time after time. Their gloved hands transfer bacteria from a patients saliva (and sometimes blood) to the light fixture. Then the next patient gets in the chair, and the procedure is repeated. I dont see how they can avoid transferring harmful bacteria and viruses from one patient to another unless they clean the light fixture off between every patient. I hope Im wrong, but I have never seen or heard of this being done. I learned sterile procedure in nursing school. If they teach sterile procedure to hygienists and dentists, they dont seem to be using it in my dentists office. Nervous Patient Dear Nervous: Relax. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, working with the American Dental Association, has developed recommendations that say all surfaces, including the dental chair, dental light, instrument tray, drawer handles and countertops, should be cleaned and decontaminated. Some offices may cover this equipment with protective covers, which are replaced after each patient. Non-disposable items like dental instruments are cleaned and sterilized between patients, while disposable dental instruments and needles are tossed along with disposable wear, such as gloves. Its quite likely that your dentist is doing all of these things before you enter the room, and therefore, you dont see it. If you have questions about infection control, talk to your dentist or check ADA.org. Dear Annie: A year ago, my husbands grown daughter announced that she would be getting married this summer. Despite heated conversations, she decided to marry in her current city, saying that having her friends in attendance is more important than having her family there. Her father has always tried to stay involved in her life (to the extent her mother would allow). So you can imagine his shock when he was told that she decided to have her stepfather walk her down the aisle for her big day. This has caused a huge rift in the family, and my husband feels the only way to save face is not to attend. Eager to avoid the expense of traveling and as a show of support, his extended family also decided not to attend. I fear that this may cause a permanent end to the father/daughter relationship. Is there any way for this to be resolved? Evil Stepmother Dear Stepmom: Did Mom pressure her daughter to have the stepfather walk her down the aisle? If so, the young woman may have felt obligated to comply, and Mom may be giddy at the thought that her ex-husband wont be there. Its also possible that the stepfather helped raise the girl and she wants to honor him. We understand how much this hurts your husband, but we hope he can put aside his pride and be supportive of his daughter on her big day. He should talk directly to her and explain his hurt feelings. We hope she reconsiders. Dear Annie: This is in response to Uncomfortable, the daughter-in-law who feels awkward calling her motherin-law Mom. I have a wonderful daughter-in-law who calls me Mil or Millie. And when I text or phone, I call her Dil. Those are our own personal nicknames, and they work for us.
