Seniors vs. Crime chief charged with theftBEVERLY HILLS Linda Lepore, the head of the Seniors vs. Crime program, was arrested Friday afternoon for shoplifting and was immediately fired from her position. According to Citrus County Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Heather Yates, Lepore apparently picked up several items at the Walmart in Inverness and paid for some but did not pay for the rest. Yates said the total value of the stolen items was less than $100. Lepore was issued a notice to appear in court to face charges of petit theft. Lepore is a 20year veteran of the New York City Police Department. The Seniors vs. Crime program has been the forefront of efforts to reduce victimization of seniors in the county. Lepore replaced Don Moran as head of the program in August 2012. The Seniors vs. Crime program was designed as a nonprofit organization of the Citrus County Sheriffs Office and the Florida Attorney Generals Office to aid the vulnerable, especially seniors. The program uses civil action in an effort to recover funds from scams or dishonest transactions. NEWS BRIEFSFrom staff reports Economy rebounds Associated PressWASHINGTON The U.S. economy has reached a milestone: It has finally regained all the private-sector jobs it lost during the Great Recession. Yet it took a painfully slow six years, and unemployment remains stubbornly high at 6.7 percent. The comeback figures were contained in a government report Friday that showed a solid if unspectacular month of job growth in March. Businesses and nonprofits shed 8.8 million jobs during the 2007-09 recession; they have since hired 8.9 million. But because the population has grown since the big downturn, most analysts were hardly celebrating the milestone. Heidi Shierholz, an economist at the liberal Economic Policy Institute, called it a pretty meaningless benchmark economically. The potential labor force is growing all the time, so the private sector should have added millions of jobs over the last six-plus years, she said. U.S. employers did add a seasonally adjusted 192,000 jobs in March, just below Februarys 197,000, which was revised higher. Marchs figure nearly matched last years average monthly gain, suggesting that the economy has recovered from the hiring slowdown caused by severe weather in December and January.

DUI suspects required to take sobriety tests Sheriff: Man leaves drugs in grocery SEANARNOLD CorrespondentA high-speed chase on Thursday night ended with multiple felony charges for a Crystal River man. Bryan Stevens, 58, was charged with two counts of felony possession of cocaine, along with fleeing and eluding law enforcement. He also faces a misdemeanor drug paraphernalia charge. According to reports from the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, deputies were alerted to apparent drugs discovered at a Crystal River-area WinnDixie. Video footage reportedly shows Stevens entering the store at approximately 9 p.m. with a green bag, found to contain a glass tube filled with a white, powdery residue and a small baggie containing approximately 1 gram of the powdery substance, which later field-tested positive for cocaine. A short time later, Stephens exited the store, but left the bag behind. As deputies approached the Winn-Dixie, they saw a 1999 red Chevrolet Corvette PATFAHERTY Staff writerDuke Energys proposed natural gas plant could be the first project in the Citrus County Enterprise Zone. The Enterprise Zone Development Agency learned Friday that the utility is considering a 400-acre site just east of the coal power plants, near the Crystal River Energy Complex, and has filed with the planning department. It also learned Duke would supply its own water. The lack of water lines to the area has been considered as a possible barrier to development. Created under state guidelines, enterprise zones offer tax credits for businesses that relocate, start or expand in those designated areas. The tax credits are for the purchase of materials in the zone and hiring of workers who live in the zone. The law also allows local government to use property tax credits and other incentives to entice companies to locate in an economically depressed area. Most of the countys enterprise zone is approximately 9.26 square miles around the Cross Florida Barge Canal and the area planned for Port Citrus.It includes a second, much smaller area of .56 square miles, east of U.S. 19 and south of West Longfellow Street in Homosassa. They may be our first customers in the enterprise zone, said Jim Faulkner, coordinator with the Enterprise Zone Development Agency. He said there are 19 existing businesses and/or landowners in the zone. Duke does not currently own the 400 acres, but is evaluating the site, according to Duke spokeswoman Heather Danenhower. We have received seven bids from the request for proposals (RPF) process we initiated in October 2013 for the proposed natural gas plant, she said. This includes Duke Energys proposal to build a two-unit combinedcycle natural gas plant in Citrus County to supply 1,640 megawatts of generation to help serve Floridas nearly 1.7 million customers. She said they are on track to award the bid by August. Meanwhile, Duke Energy is taking proactive steps to be ready to implement our construction plan, if our self-build option is selected, she said. Some of those actions include submitting land-use and Gas plant could locate in enterprise zone A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerOn the bottom front of every drivers license is fine print most people probably do not read, but those words can weigh heavily when a motorist is pulled over for impaired driving. The words are a point of quandary for attorneys about what to advise their clients when they are pulled over for driving under the influence to blow or not to blow. The words on licenses are: Operation of a motor vehicle constitutes consent to any sobriety test required by law. According to longtime Citrus County Sheriffs Office traffic deputy Richard Briggs, the law requires one or all of the following: field sobriety tasks (those are the tests usually performed on the side of the road); a breath test (performed, in this county, at the jail); and a urine or blood test performed at a hospital. Blood tests are requested in vehicle crashes, Briggs said. Urine tests are requested if the suspected driver appears to be under the influence of something other than alcohol. Failure to submit to these tests will result in your license being suspended for one year if it is your refusal, Briggs said. If you have more than one refusal, your license will be suspended for 18 months, he said. According to Citrus County Detention Facility officials, 17 people on average were brought to the jail on suspicion of DUI every month in 2013. So far in 2014, they are averaging 20 people a month. Out of those numbers, five people per month on average in 2013 refused the breath test, while nine people per month have so far refused in 2014. Briggs said a persons refusal to perform the breath test has very little effect on the case he builds in a DUI case. You have to realize that most of our patrol vehicles have cameras with audio. So, from the moment the officer stops you, every part of the encounter is being recorded, Briggs said. He said officers often begin the encounter by asking for a drivers license and registration, and often impaired persons have MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleWilliam Roberson, Correction Corporation of America assistant shift superviser at the Lecanto jail facility, explains how the Intoxilyzer 8000 pictured at right determines the level of alcohol in a persons body.

This is a desperate need in Citrus County that people arent aware of, said Iris Whittaker, Kiwanis of Homosassa Springs president. You think about buying food to give, but you dont think about buying diapers. She added that diapers cannot be purchased with food stamps. Also, many low-income parents dont have their own washer and dryer to launder cloth diapers, or sometimes laundromats prohibit cloth diapers from being washed in their machines. Or they let the baby sit in a wet diaper all day, Whittaker said. The need really is that desperate, and we hope to fill the truck. regulatory documents. If our self-build option is selected, the first unit would come online in spring 2018, and the second unit would come online in late fall 2018. Faulkner said Duke plans to supply the water from an existing well. Danenhower said the proposed natural gas plant would not require more ground water resources than what is already permitted at the Crystal River Energy Complex.

Briggs said deputies then keep talking to the suspect and listening for slurred speech, and ask the individual to exit their vehicle. A lot of impaired people have difficulty standing up without holding on to the vehicle, or they would just fall on the ground, he said. He said a request for roadside sobriety tasks will then be made, after which the person is transported to jail. At the jail, DUI suspects are immediately ushered into the testing room, which is equipped with the test machine and video recorder, according William Roberson, an assistant shift superviser and one of 20 staff members certified to conduct DUI tests. When they get here, we let them sit for 20 minutes while we prepare the machine for the test, Roberson said. Then when the machine is ready, we would let them perform the test by blowing into it. We do it twice one right after the other to make sure the results are the same and that there were no problems, Roberson said. He said the roadside tasks are also repeated in the jail where the floor is absolutely level. Roberson said if the person refuses testing, the entire encounter with the recording is included in a report handed to the State Attorneys Office for prosecution. According to jail records, only nine people tested negative in 2013 and only four so far this year. Local attorney Dale Merrill said advising clients about the decision to blow or not to blow is a major legal conundrum. On one hand, I will never advise my clients to break the law, because DUI is a misdemeanor, but if you agree to blow you are giving the prosecution more evidence to convict you should it go trial. And, when you choose not to blow, your license will be suspended. Are you able to deal with that ? My advice to clients before they are ever pulled over is if you go out to drink, put some money in your shoe to get a taxi later. The entire DUI process is very expensive and costly and it is a problem you dont want to be part of, Merrill said. She said if a client is at the scene of a stop, she always tells them to call her while the officer is checking their license information. It is a very fine line to walk between doing everything you can to vigorously defend your client in an ethical and legal manner and giving advice that may make it harder for the prosecution to prove their case.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

Anderson, chief economist at Bank of the West. But were not really that much stronger than we were last year. And we need more improvement for a stronger economy to come into fruition. The March figures did signal that stronger gains could lie ahead: More Americans without jobs are starting to look for one, and paychecks are growing. Most economists expect job growth to pick up a bit to a monthly pace of 225,000 or more. One reason: Americans have reduced their debts and benefited from rising home prices and a rising stock market. Better household finances should translate into more spending. And a major drag on growth federal spending cuts and tax increases will fade this year, most likely boosting the economy. Budget battles and government shutdowns that have eroded business and consumer confidence since the recession ended are unlikely this year. Enough repair has happened in damaged sectors and theres enough calm ... so we can have a real recovery, said Ethan Harris, global economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Greater business confidence has been good for companies such as Advanced Technology Services, a Peoria, Ill.-based firm that maintains machine tools, robotics and computer systems for industrial companies such as Caterpillar, Honeywell and Honda. The company has about 120 openings for factory floor technicians, network engineers and information technology professionals. It has 2,700 employees in the U.S. and 300 more in Mexico and Britain. Jeff Owens, president of ATS, said his clients appear more confident about economic growth and more willing to invest in machinery. He is seeing solid growth in the auto, food processing and oil and gas drilling equipment industries. The economy is better than it was a year or two ago, Owens said. Were seeing that people are more comfortable with executing their strategic plans. The U.S. unemployment rate has been stuck at 6.7 percent since December, but that partly reflects a positive trend: More Americans, particularly younger people, are either working or looking for work. So far this year, about 1.3 million people have started looking for jobs, and most have found them. Last year, by contrast, the number of people either working or looking for work had shrunk by roughly 500,000. Thats a welcome change from the pattern that had prevailed since the recession: The proportion of Americans working or looking for work fell to a 35-year low in December. Many of the unemployed had become discouraged and stopped hunting for jobs. In addition, many younger people stayed in school to avoid the job market. And some older Americans probably retired earlier than they would have otherwise. For most of the past four years, the number of Americans who found jobs barely kept up with population growth. Now its growing slightly faster. As a result, the percentage of Americans 16 or older who were working reached 58.9 percent in March the highest point since 2009. Another positive sign in the report: Americans worked more hours last month. The average work week rose to 34.5 hours last month, up from 34.3 in February. More hiring plus a longer workweek means bigger paychecks for more Americans. That should help fuel more consumer spending and economic growth in the months ahead. Still, for individual workers, average hourly pay slipped a penny to $24.30. Average hourly wages have risen 2.1 percent in the past year, faster than the 1.1 percent inflation rate. But in a healthy economy, hourly wages typically grow about 3.5 percent a year. JOBSContinued from Page A1 Associated PressErica L.

From staff reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3SATURDAY, APRIL 5, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Cathy Pearson IGA passes on Dunnellon Sweetbay PATFAHERTY Staff writerA Jacksonville grocery chain has decided against purchasing the Dunnellon Sweetbay store. After Bi-Lo Holdings, parent company of Winn-Dixie grocery stores, announced it was purchasing 72 Sweetbay stores, the Federal Trade Commission reviewed the impact of the acquisition on small communities. The FTC determined that converting the Sweetbay to Winn-Dixie in Dunnellon could adversely affect consumers through higher prices, diminished quality and reduced service levels since the community would go from three full-line retail grocery stores to two. Subsequently, as part of an FTC agreement, Bi-Lo agreed to sell the Dunnellon Sweetbay to Rowes IGA Supermarkets, which operates five stores in the Jacksonville area. But according to FTC spokesman Mitchell J. Katz, that agreement will not be finalized until the commission reviews and responds to all the public comments submitted regarding the sale. And Bi-Lo has kept the Dunnellon store in its scheduled conversion process. The store is still set to close at 1 p.m. today and reopen Friday, April 11, as a Winn-Dixie store. We decided not to move forward for various reasons, said Rob Rowe, who owns the Jacksonville grocery chain. Bi-Lo Holdings, which is now Southeastern Grocers, LLC, began the conversion process in March. It is the ninth largest grocery chain in the country with 687 stores and was started in 1961 by a former WinnDixie executive. The Sweetbay stores in Inverness, Crystal River and Spring Hill are scheduled to close on Saturday, April 12, and reopen Friday, April 18, as Winn-Dixie stores. In March, Joey Medina, WinnDixie regional vice president, announced the company has invited Sweetbay employees to work for Winn-Dixie.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or email@example.com. Inverness to install wireless water meters NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS Ever notice how your water bill fluctuates from month to month, even though you havent done anything different? Currently, many meters throughout the city of Inverness are not read consistently every 30 days some at 20 then again at 30 or 40 which is the reason for inconsistent monthly charges. Ever get an astronomical water bill because you have an undetected leak? Beginning April 14, residents and small businesses in the city of Inverness will have their water meters converted to wireless between 4,300 to 4,500 meters in all throughout the city which will alleviate both problems. Last September, the Inverness City Council approved the $2 million change-out project and approved to move $375,000 from the utility fund unreserved balance of $1,620,055. The remainder will come from a 12-year, $1.9 million lease agreement with SunTrust Bank, which will be recovered by the guaranteed energy savingsrecognized by the improvement projects. These new meters are good for 20 years, City Manager Frank DiGiovanni said. It means reading usage in real time, which eliminates the need for meter readers. And theyll catch leaks in four days, not 40. When completed, customers will be see a 92-cent technology fee added to their monthly bill. The project will take about four months to complete, said Katie Cottrell, Inverness public works director. Look for workers wearing blue shirts with a PVI Meter team logo using trucks marked with the same logo. Before they begin the change-out on each meter, a technician will knock on your door to let you know in advance that they will be shutting your water off for about 30 minutes. If theres no answer and the water meter shows that the water is running in the house, such as if someone is taking a shower, they will leave a door-hanger message and come back. If no one appears to be home and the water meter shows no water is running, they will go ahead and do the work. PVI will coordinate meter replacements with commercial customers and customers with larger meters in advance. Those with special needs for water are encouraged to notify the Public Works Department at 352-726-2321. Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy @chronicleonline.com.

(A convert to Christianity, Pocahontas had adopted the name Rebecca when she was baptized.) On this date: In 1864, Ben Field and George M. Pullman received a U.S. patent for an improvement in (rail) sleeping-cars that consisted of a folding upper berth. In 1895, Oscar Wilde lost his criminal libel case against the Marquess of Queensberry, whod accused the writer of homosexual practices. In 1951, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were sentenced to death following their conviction in New York on charges of conspiring to commit espionage for the Soviet Union. In 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Federal Communications Commission v. American Broadcasting Co., Inc., unanimously ruled that TV quiz shows did not violate lottery laws. In 1974, Stephen Kings first published novel, Carrie, was released by Doubleday. Ten years ago: Flash floods killed some three dozen people in northern Mexico. Five years ago: The Pentagon quietly lifted an 18-year ban on media coverage of fallen U.S. service members. One year ago: Kansas legislators gave final passage to a sweeping anti-abortion measure declaring that life began at fertilization. (Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, a Republican, signed the measure two weeks later.) Todays Birthdays: Movie producer Roger Corman is 88.

Paula Deen and her younger brother, Bubba, have shut off the fish fryer and locked the doors at the Savannah seafood restaurant that served as the backdrop to a workplace discrimination lawsuit that stained the celebrity cooks reputation. Deen and Bubba Hiers coowned Uncle Bubbas Seafood and Oyster House for a decade before the abrupt closure Thursday. A spokesman for the Deen family, Jaret Kellers issued a statement saying Hiers closed the restaurant to explore development options for the waterfront property on which the restaurant is located. Kellers said no specific plans have been made yet. Orange-and-white barricades blocked the entrance to Uncle Bubbas on Friday, and there were no signs of life outside. The Savannah Morning News reported employees collected severance checks in the parking lot Thursday. The restaurant closed less than a year after Deen was stung by her admission in a deposition that she had used racial slurs in the past. She was questioned by attorneys representing a former Uncle Bubbas manager who claimed she was subjected to racial slurs and sexual innuendo by Hiers. The suit was settled last August, but not before Deen lost her Food Network show and some lucrative endorsement deals. Aside from Uncle Bubbas, Deens fortunes have appeared to be improving recently. In February she announced a deal with a private investment firm thats dedicating at least $75 million to helping her make a comeback.

But producer and local businessman Scott Chambers told The Register-Guard that Regal Cinemas is giving the film a test run in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington during the coming month before deciding whether to roll it out beyond the Northwest.

Mother gets four years for toddlers drug deathOCALA A north Florida woman whose 2-year-old son died after eating an oxycodone pill has been sentenced to four years in prison. A Marion County judge sentenced 24-year-old Tiffany Baker on Thursday. A jury previously convicted her of child neglect with great bodily harm. She had initially been charged with aggravated manslaughter, but the judge threw out that charge during trial after determining the state hadnt proven the crimes elements. Baker and her thenboyfriend, 35-year-old Kalin Halchak, were arrested in 2009 after the death of Jasper Michael Sawyer. Bakers attorney argued that she was a battered person in an abusive relationship, and Halchak prevented her from helping her son. The Ocala Star-Banner reported Halchak was previously convicted of aggravated manslaughter and sentenced to 30 years in prison.Fort Hood victim from Central FloridaMULBERRY One of the three people killed by a gunman at the Fort Hood, Texas military base was from Florida.

Mark Milley, the commander of Fort Hood, said Friday that Ferguson was among the three killed. Ferguson was a 1993 graduate of Mulberry High School, in a small town between Orlando and Tampa. Mulberry High School Assistant Principal Lori Leverett said Friday that Ferguson was an all-around nice guy, very wholesome. He played high school football, baseball, basketball and ran track. Leverett said Ferguson didnt attend his 20th class reunion because he was deployed. Fergusons mother declined to comment on Friday.Panel OKs bill that makes changes to state pensionTALLAHASSEE Elected officials and top employees in state government would no longer be eligible for the states traditional pension plan under a bill now advancing in the Florida Legislature. The House State Affairs Committee voted for the bill on Friday. The legislation also would automatically place newly hired public employees in an investment 401(k) plan if the employee failed to make a choice within eight months of starting their job. The bill is a last-ditch effort to pass some type of pension changes this year. House Speaker Will Weatherford last year wanted to close off the traditional pension plan to new hires but the proposal was opposed by a majority of state senators. But its unclear if this scaled-back proposal will pass. Public employee unions and Democrats remain opposed. Around the STATE From staff and wire reports
Associated PressWASHINGTON Americans thinking about buying health insurance on their own later this year, or maybe switching to a different insurer, are probably out of luck. The policies are going off the market as a little-noticed consequence of President Barack Obamas health care overhaul. With limited exceptions, insurance companies have stopped selling until next year the sorts of individual plans that used to be available year-round. That locks out many of the young and healthy as well as the sick and injured, even those who can afford to buy without government subsidies. Now theyre stuck, said Bonnie Milani, an independent insurance broker in Los Angeles, who says she warned her customers last year that the change was coming. It just closes everything down. The next wide-open chance to sign up comes in November, when enrollment for 2015 begins in the government-run insurance marketplaces created by the health care law. Companies are following that schedule even for the plans they sell outside the federal and state exchanges. The health care law allows insurers to keep selling all year. But it also creates the conditions prompting them to stop. The law, which requires nearly all Americans to be insured or pay a fine, bans insurers from rejecting customers because of poor health. The companies say that makes it too risky to sell to individuals year-round. If you didnt have an open enrollment period, you would have people who would potentially enroll when they get sick and dis-enroll when they get better, said Chris Stenrud, spokesman for insurer Kaiser Permanente. The only insured people would be sick people, which would make insurance unaffordable for everyone. The change makes individual policies work more like the job-based plans that already cover far more Americans.Off-marketplace salesBut those who act fast may still be able to get in this year, depending on where they live. Following the lead of the government marketplaces, some companies are extending off-marketplace sales for a week or a month to help people who hit snags trying to enroll by last Mondays deadline. Rules vary from state to state. After those extensions, eligibility for coverage during 2014 is guaranteed only for people who experience certain qualifying life events, such as losing a job that provided insurance, moving to a new state, getting married, having a baby or losing coverage under a parents health plan. Insurance broker Steve Bobiak of Frackville, Pa., said he learned only a couple of weeks ago that insurers were cutting off new policies. Its lousy communication out there, he said. If we dont know, my God, how do they expect other people to know? Its terrible. A survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation in mid-March found that 6 out of 10 people without insurance werent aware of the Affordable Care Act deadline of March 31. The Obama administration, insurance companies and nonprofit groups scrambled to spread the word, often with messages that focused on the savings available to many people through government-subsidized plans sold on the marketplaces. There wasnt much public discussion about people who prefer to buy policies outside the state or federal marketplaces, sometimes finding better deals or options more to their liking. Health and Human Services spokesman Aaron Albright pointed to a note buried on the HealthCare.gov website: It says in some limited cases some insurance companies may sell private health plans outside the marketplace and outside open enrollment that satisfy the laws coverage mandate. It doesnt say how to find any companies doing that. Albright had no further comment.Highly unlikelyGary Claxton, a health law expert at the Kaiser Family Foundation, said its highly unlikely that companies will offer such coverage after the deadline window fully closes. Some do still offer temporary plans, lasting from a month to a year. But those plans dont cover pre-existing conditions and dont get buyers off the hook for the laws tax penalty. Nate Purpura, spokesman for eHealthInsurance.com, which sells policies from 200 companies across the nation, said at this point he knows of none planning to offer major medical insurance after this month, except to people with qualifying life events.Act by April 15For people trying to get an offmarketplace plan through an open enrollment extension, some insurers are selling them through April 15, and others through the end of the month. Purpura said eHealth will offer such plans in at least some areas of these states: Arizona, California, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio, Oregon, Utah, Virginia and Washington state. Kaiser Permanente will offer extensions that mirror the state or federal marketplace in the area where a plan is sold, Stenrud said. The federal marketplace extension for online enrollment is April 15. But Oregon, for example, is giving marketplace buyers until April 30. After that, Stenrud said, without a qualifying life event, the door closes until Nov. 15. Deborah Baker, 54OCALADeborah Sue Baker, 54, of Ocala, Fla., lost her fight with cancer April2, 2014.

Interestrates Tech stocks drop Nasdaq sinks Associated PressNEW YORK A slump in Internet and other technology stocks pulled the broader market lower Friday, as traders turned on the same companies they flocked to earlier this year. Google, Netflix and other pillars of the Internet economy took a beating. It was a bad day in an otherwise decent week. The Standard & Poors 500 index ended the week slightly higher. Mixed signals in the governments monthly jobs report gave investors little direction Friday. The government said that U.S. employers added more workers to their payrolls last month, but the overall report presented a mixed picture, and the unemployment rate remained at 6.7 percent. The stock market crept higher to start, began losing steam at lunchtime and then turned lower in the afternoon. The jobs report wasnt the culprit, said Uri Landesman, president of the hedge fund Platinum Management. It was likely the momentum traders, he said, people who chased high-flying stocks and are having a change of heart. Tech stocks had soared over the past year, pushing the Nasdaq composite index up 28 percent, as traders piled into Internet and biotechnology companies. Netflix and Facebook, for instance, doubled in price over that time. Its like (traders) took a look at some of these high-flying Internet companies and said, How can I justify these prices? Landesman said. The technology-heavy Nasdaq composite index plunged 110.01 points, or 2.6 percent, to close at 4,127.73, its biggest one-day drop since February. The S&P 500 index fell 23.68 points, or 1.3 percent, to 1,865.09. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 159.84 points, or 1 percent, to 16,412.71. Utilities, which investors buy to play it safe and collect dividend payments, bucked the overall market and edged higher. Coca-Cola, Johnson & Johnson and other big corporations whose stocks are often less volatile than the broader market also made gains. Coca-Cola climbed 15 cents, or 0.4 percent, to $38.22. Business BRIEFS IRS paid $53M to whistleblowersWASHINGTON The Internal Revenue Service said it paid whistleblowers a total of $53 million last year for turning in tax cheats. In an annual report to Congress, the agency said Friday it paid out 122 awards. Thats an average award of nearly $435,000. The tips led the IRS to collect more than $367 million in taxes, interest and penalties. In general, whistleblowers can claim awards if they provide information that helps the IRS collect more than $2 million in taxes, penalties and interest. But it can take years to collect awards. Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa helped write the whistleblower law. Grassley applauded the payouts but said he worries the slow pace will discourage whistleblowers. The report states the IRS received 9,268 whistleblower claims last year, up slightly from 2012.Spiders thwart Mazda recall fixDETROIT Mazda is recalling 42,000 Mazda6 cars in the U.S. because spiders can weave a web in a vent hose and cause the fuel tank to crack. The recall involves cars from the 2010 through 2012 model years equipped with 2.5-liter engines. The yellow sac spider, which is attracted to hydrocarbons, builds webs that cause pressure to build in the fuel tank. That increases the risk of fuel leaks and fire. Mazda recalled cars in 2011 for the same problem. It put covers on the vent line, but has found spiders can get past them. Mazda will update the cars software for free beginning this month to ensure that the fuel tank pressure doesnt build up. Mazda said no injuries or fires have been reported due to the issue.Evenflo recalls child seat bucklesEvenflo Company Inc. is voluntarily recalling more than 1.3 million child safety seat buckles due to the risk children could not be removed quickly in an emergency. The National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration said Friday that the recall includes buckles used in a number of childrens convertible and booster seat models manufactured between 2011 and 2014. Not all seats made during that time are included. The recall includes some of Evenflos Momentum, Chase, Maestro, Symphony, Snugli, Titan, SureRide and SecureKid models. The affected seats have model number prefixes of 306, 308, 310, 329, 345, 346, 371 or 385. The buckle may become stuck in a latched position, making it difficult to remove a child from the seat. This could prove critical to a childs safety in the case of an emergency. Evenflo will alert registered owners this month and provide replacement buckles and instructions for installation.Samsung adding anti-theft solutions SAN FRANCISCO Samsung Electronics is adding two safeguards to its latest smartphone in an effort to deter rampant theft of the mobile devices. The features announced Friday by the worlds leading mobile-phone maker will protect the Samsung Galaxy 5 S, which goes on sale next week. The models sold by wireless carriers Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular will include Find My Mobile and Reactivation Lock anti-theft options that users can activate for free. The announcement comes as prosecutors in San Francisco, New York and law enforcement officials nationwide have been demanding manufacturers create kill switches to combat surging smartphone theft across the nation. Samsung said its new measures lock the phone if theres an unauthorized attempt to reset it. Apple created a similar activation lock feature for the iPhone last year.Court sides with state on lodging taxCHEYENNE, Wyo. The Wyoming Supreme Court has ruled the state can collect the full tax amount on retail lodging sales made by online travel companies, even if they have no physical presence in the state. The ruling comes during a national debate between states and online retailers over whether the online retailers should pay local and state taxes like brick-and-mortar stores. The Wyoming case presented a different facet of the debate in that the issue wasnt whether the online companies needed to pay the sales tax on the hotel rooms they rented in Wyoming, but how much tax they needed to pay. Expedia, Travelocity, Priceline, Hotwire, Orbitz, Cheaptickets and Hotels.com had been collecting and remitting sales taxes to the state based on the lower rates that they negotiate with the hotels instead of the higher prices that they offered to consumers. For example, a company could reserve a block of rooms for $80 apiece but list them at $100 each. According to the companies, the state should collect sales taxes on the rooms based on the $80 instead of the $100. Taxing the higher amount means more sales tax for the state where tourism is the second-leading industry at about $3billion a year. The state Department of Revenue and the State Board of Equalization held that the tax should be imposed on the higher amount. The Wyoming Supreme Court agreed on Thursday.Boeing OK to sell plane parts to IranCHICAGO Boeing Co. said it has received U.S. government approval to export certain spare parts for commercial airplanes to Iran. A Boeing spokesman said Friday that the parts were needed to ensure the safety of flying. The spokesman, Marc Birtel, said export of safety-related parts was allowed under a temporary agreement that Secretary of State John Kerry reached with the Iranians late last year. Officials at the Treasury Department, which oversees sanctions against Iran, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.US rig count up nine to 1,818HOUSTON Oilfield services company Baker Hughes Inc. says the number of rigs exploring for oil and natural gas in the U.S. rose by nine this week to 1,818. The Houston firm said in its weekly report Friday that 1,498 rigs were exploring for oil and 316 for gas. Four were listed as miscellaneous. A year ago there were 1,738 active rigs. Of the major oiland gasproducing states, Texas gained 11 rigs, Oklahoma increased by five, Pennsylvania gained three and New Mexico increased by two. Louisiana lost six, Alaska fell by three, Kansas lost two and California, Colorado and Wyoming lost one each. Arkansas, North Dakota, Ohio, Utah and West Virginia were unchanged. The U.S. rig count peaked at 4,530 in 1981 and bottomed at 488 in 1999.Wall Street orders up GrubHub NEW YORK Wall Street has a major craving for takeout. Investors sent shares of GrubHub Inc. up nearly 40 percent Friday following an initial public offering that valued the online food ordering service at more than $2 billion. GrubHub is one of four companies to go public Friday in what has been a very hot IPO market, especially for businesses in the cloud software and biotech industries. There have been 71 IPOs priced so far this year, up 115 percent from the same time last year, according to IPO investment adviser and research company Renaissance Capital. Investors are looking for growth in a slow-growth economy, said Kathleen Smith, a Renaissance Capital principal.Economist queries dam purchasesHELENA, Mont. An economist for the Montana Consumer Counsel says NorthWestern Energys proposed purchase of 11 hydroelectric dams could cost ratepayers $800 million over 15 years unless more risk is shifted to the company. The Billings Gazette reported Friday that economist John Wilson questioned some of the assumptions behind companys argument that the deal helps consumers. Among the assumptions that Wilson questioned was that a future carbon tax will make other forms of power generation more expensive. The company said Friday it stands by its analysis. NorthWestern Energy has asked state regulators to approve the $900 million purchase of the dams from PPL Montana. From wire reports

In 2012, only Republican Mitt Romney supported traditional marriage, Obama having announced a change of heart six months before the election. What about 2016? Its impossible to imagine a Democratic candidate not supporting the redefinition of marriage. As for Republicans, its hard to see a gay-marriagesupporting candidate make it through the GOP primaries. But is it possible to imagine a Republican nominee who finds a softer way to oppose gay marriage without alienating either his partys older voters, who continue to overwhelmingly disapprove, or the millions of Americans who now support same-sex unions? While an overwhelming majority of Democrats (69 percent) approve of gay marriage, just 39 percent of Republicans do, according to a Pew survey released this month. But Pew found that 61 percent of Republicans aged 18-29 approve of gay marriage, and 43 percent of those aged 3049 approve. How will Republican candidates talk to them? A hint came this week, not from a politician, but from a leading evangelical. Russell Moore, the 42-year-old president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, is a star in cultural conservative circles. Speaking at a recent conference of journalists organized by the Ethics and Public Policy Center, Moore, a strong supporter of traditional marriage, was asked what his ideal presidential candidate would say about the issue. I would want a presidential candidate who understands the public good of marriage, Moore answered, and one who is not hostile to evangelical concerns, and who is going to protect religious liberty and freedom of conscience. To illustrate such protections of liberty, Moore mentioned ensuring that Catholic adoption agencies are allowed to place children only in traditional-marriage homes. Missing from Moores answer was a firm requirement that a presidential candidate be a vocal opponent of gay marriage. Indeed, at another point in his remarks, Moore noted that evangelicals are beginning to realize that American culture is moving toward same-sex marriage. We have been saying, Look, same-sex marriage is inevitable in American culture, Moore continued. It doesnt mean we should stop talking about it ... It means we need to start preparing our churches for a new generation. Moores fallback position theres no other way to describe it is to insist that once the marriage fight is lost, the beliefs of Americans who oppose homosexual marriage on religious grounds be respected. While Moore rejected those who suggest, Lets simply abandon the question of marriage altogether and simply deal with religious liberty issues, theres little doubt hes putting new emphasis on liberty and less on manning the barricades against gay marriage. Moores position fits perfectly with a recent assessment by theWashington Examiners Tim Carney: Conservatives see religious liberty arguments as the last redoubt in the culture war: You guys won your gay marriages, permissive abortion laws, taxpayer-subsidized birth control and divorce-on-demand; let us just live our lives according to our own consciences. Carney is under no illusion that culture warriors on the Left will allow that to happen. Neither is Moore. He responded with a quick no when asked whether he believes pro-gaymarriage activists, the ones who identified test cases and filed lawsuits and pushed the issue from state to state, will now just step back and allow, say, religious adoption agencies to operate according their beliefs. Attacks on religious liberty are already well underway, Moore noted. But evangelicals must recognize where the country is right now. Having an old-style political fight on gay marriage for example, pushing for a oneman-one-woman constitutional amendment is a politically ridiculous thing to do right now. Instead, Moore said, We have to be ready for these religious liberty issues before they hit us. White evangelicals remain firmly Republican. In 2012, they voted for Romney over Obama 79 percent to 20 percent, which is very close to the margin of victory of George W. Bush over John Kerry (73 to 26) among white evangelicals in 2004. But if Moore is correct, evangelical politics is changing fast. As time goes on, the illusion of a moral majority is no longer sustainable in this country, Moore said, making both a faith-based judgment and a reference to the once-powerful Religious Right political organization. I dont think the culture wars are over ... but are moving into a new phase. Moore certainly doesnt represent all evangelicals. But his is an influential voice. And as far as marriage is concerned, younger evangelicals, and perhaps evangelicals as a whole, appear no longer likely to require that a political candidate go to war over the issue and more likely to insist that leaders protect the faithfuls beliefs.Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner.

In other words, they value self-interest over the interests of their constituency. Not surprising. The idea that people tend to value their own self-interests has been around since Adam Smith penned The Wealth of Nations in the 18th century. Americans are nothing if they are not proponents of individualism, protecting their right to acting out of selfinterest without interference or regard to society as a whole. Unfortunately, when those tabbed to serve the electorate are more self-interested than constituent-invested, it can lead to disenchantment and anger. Nevertheless, freedom has its costs, and having a truly free and capitalistic society means corporations have the right to make money and protect their own interests. Energy companies are no different. Their revenue stream is determined by legislative action, and in order to protect their earnings, they must lobby politicians and influence the Public Service Commission (PSC) as best they can. These public utilities are actually natural monopolies. The PSCs job is to protect the public interest, but it also takes the place of a competitor in the marketplace by regulating the utilities rates and services. According to the report, four energy companies Florida Power & Light, Duke Energy, TECO Energy and Gulf Power registered one lobbyist for every two state legislators each legislative session between 2007 and 2013. That influence over legislators removed one of the most powerful public advocates, Nancy Argenziano, from the PSC. Lobbyists do serve a purpose. They help educate legislators on the bills being written and filed and they push for those measures that support local interests. Citrus County has lobbyists who advocate for funding local environmental, economic and cultural initiatives. Unfortunately, there is no mechanism to regulate selfinterest, and as along as politicians serve those who pad their war chests instead of those they have vowed to serve, then money from political donors will bankroll reelection campaigns. THE ISSUE:Energy industry exerts outsized political influence in Florida.OUR OPINION:Excessive campaign donations, lobbying leads to poor impression of politicians by voters.

SOUND OFFCALL563-0579 Time to say goodbyeThis is in regard to the recreation center in Beverly Hills. I just dont understand why Brad Thorpe wants to keep it open. Its dead. Its on life support. For the amount of money that the county commissioners would be having to pay for like 30 people a day, its ridiculous. And there are the rest of us in the county (who) dont use it. I mean, really, 192 people membership but 30 people a day? Let it go. Fill the pool in and make it a big park. Just be grass where kids can run and play. The community in Beverly Hills has changed. People have died. Everybody over there now is young families with children, so maybe they need like a park with just grass and a swing set. Its not feasible and its not fair to the rest of us in the county that have no association with that area to have to pay. We have potholes on our street. We have empty houses on our street. We have blight everywhere in this county.Take a hit on costRegarding the rec center in Beverly Hills: If the county commissioners would lower the membership fee like it used to be, they would get probably a heck of a lot more membership and this could alleviate some of the problems that the commission is having right now. Take a hit on the cost and raise the membership and that should satisfy a bit of the problem.Pool your salariesIn regards to the county commissioners saying they dont have money to maintain the Beverly Hills pool: If they would stop getting a salary, as in most states the board serves freely, maybe they could afford to keep up the pool and all.

Contact Margaret Abernathy, president, at 352-527-2563, for more information.Our Lady of Grace Church Council of Catholic Women Concerns about Three Sisters SpringsThis letter is prompted by a conversation I had with a Manatee Watch volunteer at the March 11 META meeting, which featured a presentation by James Reid, a senior wildlife biologist for USGS, addressing manatee habits. The volunteer was commenting on the overcrowding inside the springs, and asking about the effects of the overcrowding. The answer from Reid was the manatee was highly adaptive, and different animals would react in different ways. Some would become more reclusive and find locations with less human activity, while others would seek more interaction. He emphasized the need for sanctuaries to provide a choice for the animals. I wish to make it clear to the volunteer and the public what can be done: 1. The only entity that has jurisdiction and the ability to control entering Three Sisters Springs is the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, subject to the management agreement with the city of Crystal River and the Florida Forever Trust agreement. A. FWS cannot close the springs off to public access other than for an extreme cold event, for a limited amount of time, which is clearly defined. B. FWS can close off a portion of the springs during a cold event when there are a large amount of animals inside the spring, effectively creating a temporary sanctuary. C. FWS can post an employee at the headwater of the springs at the entrance, who could limit the number as well as time allotted inside the springs. In my opinion, this should not be a volunteer but a paid FWS officer with enforcement authority. Such a plan would require approval of the city of Crystal River and the FTC. D. The service could charge an entrance fee via water and land, subject to approval of the city of Crystal River and the FTC. 2. FWS has limited access to the Three Sisters land and has not instituted any of the above due to lack of sufficient personnel available to staff the requirements. They stated that, since the agreement, the staff was not expanded as promised but in fact reduced since 2010. Furthermore they point to the recent sequester which further exacerbated an already bad situation. Our local FWS staff can do little about this other than attempt to adapt. There is some hope that the new management of Andrew Gude and James Burnett may have greater influence than previous management. We, the citizens of Crystal River and Citrus County, were assured at the time of the purchase of the land from the developers and the subsequent management agreement that Three Sister was the top priority for FWS. Performance has proven this is not the fact. In the vast bureaucracy of FWS, you would think you could find sufficient funds to support the number of people required to protect our international recognized treasure the Three Sister Springs and its famous winter resident the Florida manatee. FWS should provide the necessary management on a year-round basis to protect this magnificent and worldclass resource. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewel and her top administrators need to reprioritize and find the resources for management of these treasures. If interested, you can email questions to captbiminibob@ gmail.com. The discussion will be as factual as possible and if I do not have the answer, I will state so. I am writing this as a concerned citizen, and waterfront property owner close to Three Sisters Springs. Bob Mercer Crystal River LETTERSto the Editor
Associated PressThis undated image provided by the U.S. Army shows new grooming regulations for females. Black women worried about Army regulationsWASHINGTON New Army regulations dealing with hair are coming under criticism by some black military women, who say changes are racially biased. The Army earlier this week issued new appearance standards that ban most twists, dreadlocks and large cornrows. Those are all styles used predominantly by blank women with natural hairstyles. More than 11,000 people have signed a White House petition asking President Barack Obama to have the military review the regulations to allow for neat and maintained natural hairstyles. Patricia Jackson-Kelley is with the National Association of Black Military Women. She said she doesnt understand how having braids affects a womans ability to perform her duty in the military. The changes and several other Army appearance modifications were first published by the Army Times.Tunnels found under borderSAN DIEGO Two drugsmuggling tunnels with rail systems stretching hundreds of yards across the U.S.Mexico border were discovered by law enforcement officials, and a 73-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of helping run one operation, federal authorities said Friday. No contraband was found in connection with the tunnels, which linked warehouses in Tijuana, Mexico, and the Otay Mesa area of San Diego, according to a statement from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcements Homeland Security Investigations. The first tunnel, stretching about 600 yards, was discovered Tuesday. It was described as being equipped with lighting, a crude rail system and wooden trusses. The other tunnel, located Thursday, stretches more than 700 yards and was built with more sophisticated features, including a multitiered electric rail system and ventilation equipment.SC mother gets 20 years SPARTANBURG, S.C. A judge sentenced a South Carolina woman to 20 years in prison Friday for killing her 6-week-old daughter with what prosecutors said was an overdose of morphine delivered through her breast milk. A prosecutor said Stephanie Greene, 39, was a nurse and knew the dangers of taking painkillers while pregnant and breast feeding, instead choosing to conceal her pregnancy from doctors so she could keep getting her prescriptions. She lost her nursing license in 2004 for trying to get drugs illegally. The 20-year sentence was the minimum after a Spartanburg County jury found Greene guilty of homicide by child abuse Friday. She could have faced up to life behind bars.

Pink eye outbreak shuts schools PAGO PAGO, American Samoa American Samoa officials have ordered all public schools in the U.S. island territory closed after nearly 2,300 students contracted pink eye. The outbreak prompted the Friday closure of 28 schools from preschool through high school. Education Department director Salu Hunkin-Finau said nearly 2,300 students and 130 teachers have pink eye. About 13,000 kids are enrolled. Hunkin-Finau said schools wont reopen until Wednesday. The Centers for Disease Control said conjunctivitis known as pink eye is one of the most common eye conditions, inflaming tissue on the eyeball and lining the eyelid. Local government officials believe the disease was spread from neighboring Samoa, where an outbreak closed schools for a week last month. American Samoa is a group of islands in the South Pacific about halfway between New Zealand and Hawaii.Mali reports Ebola panicBAMAKO, Mali Residents in the Malian capital say panic over suspected cases of Ebola prompted public demonstrations. Ibrahim Coullibaly, who lives in the Lassa neighborhood of Bamako, said several people were wounded Friday when police tried to disperse the protesters.

Already at least 84 people have died in neighboring Guinea, while two deaths have been confirmed in Liberia amid the first Ebola outbreak in West Africa in two decades. Ebola kills up to 90 percent of patients. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressCASABLANCA, Morocco The Obama administration will re-evaluate its role in foundering Middle East peace talks following actions by both Israel and the Palestinians that have brought the negotiations to virtual collapse, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Friday. A visibly downbeat Kerry, who has spent the better part of his 14month tenure as Americas top diplomat trying to cajole the parties into talks, stopped short of declaring the peace process dead. But in his most pessimistic assessment of the situation since talks began last summer with an end-of-April target for a deal, Kerry made clear his patience was near exhausted. He said it was time for a reality check. It is regrettable that in the last few days both sides have taken steps that are not helpful and thats evident to everybody, he said. Speaking to reporters in Rabat before traveling to Casablanca for a meeting with Moroccos king, Kerry said the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks could not continue to occupy so much of his time if the Israelis and Palestinians were unable to take even minor steps toward making the negotiations successful. He noted there were other pressing matters, such as the crises in Ukraine and Syria, as well as the Iran nuclear talks, that demand attention. Clearly, we have an enormous amount on the plate, Kerry said. There are limits to the amount of time and effort that the United States can spend if the parties themselves are unable to take constructive steps. We are going to evaluate very carefully exactly where this is and where it might possibly be able to go. Kerry has been the lead player in the administrations effort to forge a long-elusive deal to end the conflict and for the past 12 days had been conducting furious shuttle diplomacy to salvage the talks as the end-of-month deadline loomed. Service path to status? Associated PressWASHINGTON Stymied on comprehensive immigration overhaul, House Republicans are pushing a plan to give young immigrants brought to the country illegally by their parents a path to resident status if they join the U.S. military. Rep. Jeff Denham said Friday he would press for a vote on his legislation, known as the ENLIST Act, either as a free-standing bill or as an addition to the defense authorization measure that the House will consider in May. The Californian from a competitive, increasingly Hispanic district is one of a handful of GOP proponents of reform whose hopes for a vote have been quashed this election year. This is a way to improve our national security, Denham told reporters in arguing for his legislation. Denham immediately faced a concerted effort from conservative opponents to scuttle his move. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., circulated a letter among his colleagues opposing any attempt to add immigration legislation to the defense bill. His intent was to collect as many signatures as possible and deliver the letter to House leadership. Brooks, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, vowed to challenge any move on immigration, either when the committee writes its bill on May 7 or on the House floor. If another member tries to give illegal aliens preferential treatment and put them on equal footing with American citizens for jobs in the military, I will fight it and all hell will break loose, Brooks said in an interview. House Republicans want to avoid a divisive immigration fight that could anger their core voters, especially with an improving outlook for the November midterms. The GOP hopes to increase its majority in the House and possibly win control of the Senate. Denhams bill, which has the support of 42 Republicans and Democrats, would allow immigrants who were brought to this country on or before Dec. 31, 2011, and were younger than 15 years old to become legal, permanent residents through honorable service in the military. AP photographer killed, reporter wounded Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan An Afghan police commander opened fire Friday on two Associated Press journalists inside a security forces base in eastern Afghanistan, killing prizewinning photographer Anja Niedringhaus and wounding veteran correspondent Kathy Gannon. Niedringhaus, 48, who had covered conflict zones from the Balkans in the 1990s to Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan and was part of a team of AP photographers who won the Pulitzer Prize in 2005, died instantly of her wounds. Gannon, who for many years was the news organizations Afghanistan bureau chief and currently is a special correspondent for the region, was shot three times in the wrists and shoulder. After surgery, she was in stable condition and spoke to medical personnel before being flown to Kabul. Anja was a vibrant, dynamic journalist wellloved for her insightful photographs, her warm heart and joy for life. We are heartbroken at her loss, said AP Executive Editor Kathleen Carroll, speaking in New York. Niedringhaus and Gannon worked together repeatedly in Afghanistan since the 2001 U.S.-led invasion, covering the conflict from some of the most dangerous hotspots of the Taliban insurgency. They often focused on the wars impact on Afghan civilians and they embedded several times with Afghan police and military, reporting on their determination to build up their often underequipped forces to face the fight with militants. Gannon also knows several leading Taliban well, and was one of the few Western reporters allowed into Afghanistan during the Talibans rule in the 1990s. Fridays attack was particularly startling because it came as an insider shooting by a member of the Afghan security forces the first known instance of an insider attack on journalists. It came on the eve of Afghanistans elections for a new president and provincial councils. The Taliban have vowed to disrupt the voting and have stepped up violence in recent weeks, including increased attacks on civilian targets in Kabul and the killings of a Swedish journalist and Afghan journalist for the French news agency Agence France-Presse.

Bucs deal Williams to Bills Tampa Bay gets sixth-round pick for wide receiver Associated PressBUFFALO, N.Y. Receiver Mike Williams is returning home to Buffalo after being acquired by the Bills in a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Friday. The trade, contingent on Williams passing a physical, addresses a significant need for the Bills by adding an experienced, proven starter to what had been a young group of receivers. In exchange, the Bills gave up a sixth-round draft pick. At 6-foot-2 and 212 pounds, Williams has topped 900 yards receiving in two of his four seasons. That includes 2010, when he led NFL rookies with 65 catches, 964 yards and 11 touchdowns. He comes to Buffalo with a hefty price tag a year after signing a six-year, $40 million contract. Injuries limited Williams to just six games last season, when he finished with 22 catches for 216 yards and two touchdowns. Williams grew up in Buffalo, where he was a high school star.

Morgan smacked a two-run double earlier in the inning. Crystal River downs Lecanto in annual Breast Cancer Awareness contest C.J. RISAK CorrespondentLECANTO The timing went to Crystal River when it played at Lecanto in each teams final regular-season district softball game Friday. Twice the Pirates battled back against the Panthers, scoring twice in the sixth and adding another in the seventh to subdue Lecanto 8-6. Trailing 6-5 going into the sixth, Alexa Mack and Dani Gomez reached base on walks and, with two outs, Marissa Pools fly to right field was dropped, allowing both runs to score. A run-scoring single by McCale Wilson in the seventh plated Bridget Whitley, who doubled to start the inning, to add an insurance run. Tiffany MacDonald started on the mound for Crystal River, but after Lecantos Amber Russo tripled in two runs in the bottom of the fifth, she was lifted for Wilson. Further damage in the inning was prevented when Rebecca Schuler flew out to right field and Kiera Morgans throw home got Russo trying to score. Wilson gave up two singles in that inning, but then retired the final seven Panthers she faced to earn the victory in relief. She did not allow a run in the three innings she pitched, striking out one. Everyone stepped up and played together as a team tonight, said Crystal River coach Cassidy Rash, her team improving to 10-9 overall, 3-3 in 5A-6. I think congratulations are due to both teams, they both played hard. We just stayed up and never got down, and thats because of the team leaders. They helped us stay up. Both teams got on track offensively quickly, each putting two runs on the board in the first inning. Morgan doubled in two runs for the Pirates in the opening inning, and Lecanto answered with an RBI single by Paige Richards and a runscoring ground out by Kelsie Lilley. The Panthers took the lead with two runs in the second, both coming home on Amber Hopkins bases-loaded, two-out base hit. Crystal River trimmed that advantage to one run on a lead-off double by Gomez and a single by Pool in the third, and the Pirates then took the lead with two runs in the fifth, both scoring on Bridget Whitleys double up the third-base line. Lecanto did score twice in the bottom of the fifth, but the damage could have been worse. Russos triple came after singles by Richards and Lilley, but the double play ruined the rally particularly when considering Sidney Holstein and Hannah Sachewicz followed with singles. I thought we hit the ball at times very well, said Lecanto assistant coach Chris Grimes, filling in for head coach Robert Dupler, who missed the game for a family matter. Weve done it well at times all season. What went wrong was whats been going wrong all year, making errors at key times in the game. The loss left Lecanto at 5-12 overall, 1-5 in 5A-6. Whitleys two doubles and two RBIs paced the Crystal River attack, with Gomez also collecting two hits. Sachewicz topped Lecanto with three hits; Richards added two hits and an RBI.
B2SATURDAY, APRIL5, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Back from hiatus, racing on tap tonight SEANARNOLD CorrespondentThe Citrus County Speedway returns to action today from a three-week hiatus for the Citrus County Fair, with the popular Non-Wing Sprints headlining a seven-class lineup. Pure Stocks, Hornets Pros and Rookies, Mini Stocks, Street Stocks and Cars of Yesterday join the sprints, while the originally scheduled 50-lap Modified Mini Stock event has been reassigned for April 19, due to a backorder on tires and another simultaneously scheduled 50lap Mod Mini event in the area. Its the third Non-Wing Sprint Series event of the season at Citrus, which has averaged a 23-car turnout the first two nights. Aaron Pierce, of Daleville, Ind., got by Jimmy Alvis Sr. with five laps remaining to capture the checkered flag in the opener on Feb. 1. Tampas Mickey Kempgens, a fourth-place finisher in the first race, dominated the second leg to prevail in a No. 5-ride owned by Tampas Lee Cipray. In Pure Stocks, 2013 champion Jason Waller has a pair of feature and heat wins from his three outings, and father-son duo Larry Welter Sr. and Larry Welter Jr. each have a feature victory. The latter prevailed in the most recent event on March 9, after watching Waller and Karlin Ray tangle up in the front on lap 18. Larry Welter Sr., a winner in the season-opener, leads the points standings by five points over Mike Autenrieth. With three convincing feature wins and a couple of heat victories, Brooksvilles Tim Wilson and his Traes Tree Service team have the hot hand in Street Stocks this season. Perennial standout Curtis Flanagan has a feature and heat win, but took a hit in points after he was issued a disqualification for the March 8 race. Similar to last season, the Mini Stock class boasts a lot of parity in terms of feature-win distribution. Jason Terry, Dr. Shannon Kennedy and points-leader Bill Ryan (two heat wins) have each claimed a feature after three nights for the division. Wesley Chapels Raymond Vann divides his time in Pro Hornets with dirt-track racing, but has posted a division-high three feature wins in three appearances this season. Marvin Armstrong leads the Pro Hornets in points behind one feature win. Heat races begin at 6 p.m. with Pure Stocks. The grandstand gates open at 4 p.m. Adults are $13, students (age 12-17), seniors and military personnel with ID are $9. Children age 11 and under are $5 (children shorter than 42 inches are free).

Florida, the tournaments overall No. 1 seed, is looking for its third national title, the first two coming in consecutive years under coach Billy Donovan. These guys understand what goes into playing and competing, theyre really good as it relates to scouting report and preparation, Donovan said. I think they understand how hard they have to play, how well they have to play defensively together, offensively together. Shabazz Napier hit a buzzer-beating jumper from the free throw line to give Connecticut (30-8) the 65-64 victory in Storrs, Conn., four months ago. The dramatic win didnt exactly propel the Huskies as they lost three of their next five games. Napier was named the American Athletic Conference player of the year and was a first-team AllAmerica. He took advantage of a freak play to hand the Gators (36-2) one of their two losses the other was to Wisconsin, another Final Four team. I was fortunate, he said. I put up a lousy shot and DeAndre tipped it back out and I was able to get off a great shot. I got a second chance and was fortunate enough to make it. Now Connecticut, just like that day before winter even started, has a second chance at Florida. The Gators were different that day in that freshman guard Kasey Hill was out with an ankle injury and freshman forward Chris Walker was clearing up eligibility issues. Scottie Wilbekin, the doeverything guard who was chosen Southeastern Conference player of the year, was playing in his third game of the season after being suspended for the first four. He had 15 points but injured an ankle with 3:01 to play, was taken to the locker room and never returned. I was in the locker room and there was a clock but no score, he recalled Friday. I kept asking one of our managers to go check the score. He came back and said we were up one and there was only a couple of seconds left. I was laying there with ice on my leg and I heard the roar from the crowd and I knew we lost. That was the low point of our season. Were familiar with them, and theyre familiar with us. Theyve done a great job of improving the defense since we played them, especially in the postseason. The aim of the Gator defense on Saturday will be stopping the 6-foot-1 Napier, who leads the Huskies in scoring (18.1), rebounding (5.9) and assists (4.9), a first for the program. He has scored at least 19 points in the four NCAA tournament games and there hasnt been a big play made by the Huskies that hasnt started or ended with the ball in his hands. I think a lot of times they can give the ball to Shabazz and he can play up top and just create and make plays, Donovan said. When the ball gets back in his hands, now youre in a very vulnerable situation and that will be something that I think will be a challenge for us tomorrow. Wilbekin will have the ball in the final minutes for the Gators. He had a career-high 23 points in the win over Dayton in the South Regional final. The Huskies, specifically Napier, will focus on Wilbekin. Tires the talk of Texas Associated PressFORT WORTH, Texas Tires remained the hot topic at Texas Motor Speedway, where NASCAR and Goodyear took the unprecedented step of discussing the compound selected for Sundays race before a single lap had been turned. Goodyears multi-zone tread tire is making its season debut at Texas, where speeds inched toward 200 mph in Fridays opening practice session. There was one major incident, 100 minutes into practice, when Kurt Busch wrecked hard into the outside wall. Busch, winner of last weeks race at Martinsville, appeared to blow a left rear tire before losing control of his Chevrolet and crashing. His car caught fire, and as his Stewart-Haas Racing team pulled out the backup, Busch said the left rear tire started to separate on the backstretch. The left side tires being used at Texas are the same ones Goodyear has used at the last two races here. The multi-zone tread tire combines two distinct rubber compounds on right-side tire, with the outside 10 inches of tread designed for traction, and the compound on the inside two inches is designed for durability. But a handful of drivers publicly expressed concern about tire wear and durability on Texas high banks. The concern comes two races after a flurry of left-side tire failures at California led many drivers to question Goodyears product and preparation. Greg Stucker, Goodyear director of race tire sales, said the manufacturer is confident the selection for Texas will be just fine. Historically, Texas has not been a race track where we have a lot of leftside problems, he said. We addressed the right side because it is a highspeed race track, and thats what gets stressed tremendously here. Thats why we came with the zone tread tire, because it was a good solution to that. I think on the heels of some of the issues we saw at Fontana, people are asking the question, Is there a possibility we could see the same thing? Theres always that possibility. But both NASCAR and Goodyear are adamant that any issues that occurred at California were self-inflicted and that will again be the case at Texas. People are always pushing the envelope, always trying to stress all parts of the race car, Stucker said. We understand that and support that. Thats what makes racing great, right? Joey Logano blew two tires at California in practice and his Team Penske teammate Brad Keselowski blew three. He admitted Friday that the organization was aggressive with the minimum air pressure recommendations from Goodyear. I think it was field-wide. I think everybody was being pretty aggressive, he said. Although some teams have gone to NASCAR and asked the sanctioning body to monitor air pressure, NASCAR does not want to begin regulating. It would instead prefer teams to roll the dice on strategy. SEANARNOLD CorrespondentRaymond Vann stays busy on the track, and hes not about slow down. The veteran Wesley Chapel driver is 3 for 3 in feature wins in the Hornet Pro class at the Citrus County Speedway, and leads the V8 Warriors dirt-track division at East Bay Raceway Park in Riverview. Ive done it all my life, he said this week. Its a lot of fun. I built a car and have been running it down at the dirt track at East Bay, and I just wanted to go to Citrus. Its a fun track, but itd be a lot more fun with more cars, added Vann on the first-year Hornet class, which averages about six cars a night. The Hornets are a real cheap class a good class to get into. Vann, who rides the No. 99 at Citrus, grew up around racing, with his father racing at Tampas Golden Gate Speedway. His first class was a four-cylinder class at Auburndale Speedway. He eventually got involved with dirt-track racing out of curiosity. He said his Warrior class ride (No. 32) is essentially a street stock, which he keeps up with his brother Red Vann. Vann scored a top-three finish in all four of his races last year at the Riverview track, and will be seeking his second consecutive win on his next trip. He said his work on the cars isnt very difficult, given his experience as a mechanic as well as his time spent in racing. My family has been in racing forever, Vann said. After Auburndale, I went to Street Stocks over at the Sunshine Speedway (now Showtime), and then I ended up getting an Open Wheel Modified and running it in Ocala. Ocala was a good year, but theres more to it than thatI got in trouble there. Racing-wise, Bay Side has been my best track. I got a Warrior with Red, wanting to try something different and try to have some more fun. Vann races on dirt every other week, but expects to make frequent visits to Inverness this season, as Hornets are often on the racing schedule at CCS. His 20-year-old son Jacob also rides the No. 99 in the Rookie Hornet class and, in his first year racing, already has a feature win and a third-place finish in three outings. Hes enjoying it, Jacobs father said. Hes getting on pretty well. Raymond Vann said the biggest contrast between racing on dirt and pavement comes from the difference between racing a front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive vehicle. Its a big difference, he said. On front-wheel rides, youve got to just keep turning left. But with rear-wheels, youve got to go left and right with the steering wheel. Even if you race a front-wheel on dirt, you never need to turn right. Vann, whos in his forties, doesnt keep a tally of his wins. I havent even thought about how many races Ive won, he said. I give all the trophies to the kids, and they love it. Busy, busy, busy BUTCH CRAWFORD /Special to the ChronicleRaymond Vann is 3 for 3 in Citrus County Speedway feature wins in the Hornet Pro class. Vann stays occupied in quest to keep wins rolling in at Citrus County Speedway FLORIDAContinued from Page B1 Associated PressIf the Florida mens basketball team can win two more games, it would give Gators coach Billy Donovan a third national championship at the teams helm.

In a statement released by the Bills announcing the trade, Marrone addressed the falling out at Syracuse by saying he feels that is now in the past. Today, Mike has an opportunity to get a fresh start to his career here in his hometown, and regain his form as a productive player in the National Football League, Marrone said. We feel Mike is a player who has the ability to help our team improve. Williams also missed the entire 2008 season after being suspended for violating the schools academic integrity policy. With questions about his departure from Syracuse, Williams stock dropped entering the 2010 draft. He was eventually selected in the fourth round, 101st overall, by the Buccaneers. He made off-field headlines last month. On March 23, he was allegedly stabbed in the leg by his brother, Eric Baylor, who has since turned himself in to police. Williams was treated and released from a hospital for a thigh wound. According to Hillsborough County Sheriffs office, Williams initially told deputies he and his brother were wrestling and the stabbing was accidental. At this time, we felt this was best for both sides, and we wish Mike well going forward, Buccaneers GM Jason Licht said of the trade. Overall, Williams has 215 catches for 2,947 yards and 25 touchdowns in 54 games. In Buffalo, Williams joins a receiving group that featured only one proven starter in Stevie Johnson. Johnsons numbers plummeted in 2013 in part due to injuries, and he missed the final two games following the death of his mother. The Bills passing attack struggled as a whole, finishing 29th in yards gained. That was in part due to a series of knee injuries that limited rookie starting quarterback EJ Manuel to just 10 games. Williams addition provides the Bills an opportunity to address other needs in the draft next month; they own the ninth overall pick. The Bills used two of their first four selections on receivers in last years draft by choosing Robert Woods in the second round and speedster Marquise Goodwin in the third. WILLIAMSContinued from Page B1 Thompson, Pak share LPGA Kraft Nabisco leadRANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. Lexi Thompson found a putting touch to match her power game Friday in the Kraft Nabisco Championship. The 19-year-old Thompson, already a three-time winner on the LPGA Tour, shot a bogey-free 8-under 64 at Mission Hills for a share of the second-round lead with Se Ri Pak. Thompson birdied eight of the last 13 holes and had only 25 putts after taking 35 in a first-round 73. Pak had a 70 to match Thompson at 7-under 137 in the first major championship of the year. Michelle Wie was a stroke back after a 71. First-round leader Shanshan Feng bogeyed the final two holes for a 73 to drop into a tie for fourth with Cristie Kerr at 5 under. Kerr had a 70. Garcias surge tops Houston leaderboard Associated PressHUMBLE, Texas Sergio Garcia surged to the top of the leaderboard by shooting a 7-under-par 65 in the second round of the Houston Open on Friday. The Spaniards overall score of 12-under 132 matches the 36-hole low at the 7,441-yard Golf Club of Houston, and hes one shot ahead of Matt Kuchar. Garcia, opening on the back nine, climbed the leaderboard with a birdie-eagle-birdie stretch on his front nine. His eagle on No. 13 came after sticking his 282-yard second shot to 5 feet. First-round co-leader Bill Haas followed his opening 65 with a 2-over 74 in gusty conditions. The other first-round leader, Charley Hoffman, fell to 3 under overall. Phil Mickelson shot a 2-under 70 and is 6 under overall, six shots back of Garcia. After a bogey-free opening round on Thursday, Mickelson still recovering from last weeks muscle pull that forced his withdrawal from the Texas Open overcame a pair of bogeys on Friday with four birdies. The five-time major winner, who won the Houston Open in 2011, had back-to-back birdies to reach 6 under and is one of 11 golfers within six shots of Garcia. Kuchar, who tied for fourth last week in San Antonio, began his afternoon round six shots back of Garcia after opening with a 6-under 66 on Thursday. He reached 12 under with his sixth birdie of the day on the par-4 17th before finding the fairway bunker on the 18th and settling for a bogey to fall back to 11 under. While the clear and windy conditions presented difficulties for several in the field, Garcia had no such problems in just his second visit to the former Redstone Golf Club which switched names to the Golf Club of Houston after an ownership change. Still in search of his first major championship, Garcia showed hes ready for the slick greens and tight fairways at next weeks Masters on the Augusta National-like setup on Friday. He needed only 25 putts for his round while finishing only two shots off the course record of 63. He equaled the courses previous low 36 holes set by Johnson Wagner in 2008 and matched in 2012 by Jeff Maggert. Garcia, who opened with a 5-under 67 on Thursday, began Fridays round on the back nine. His first birdie came following a 12-foot putt on No. 12, and he followed that with a spectacular eagle on the par-5 13th.

It was Cabreras first homer of the season and the second leadoff shot of his career.

SPORTSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, APRIL5, 2014 B5 Panthers Cortalano picks Florida College JON-MICHAELSORACCHI Staff WriterJohn Cortalano has led a pretty busy life during his high school career. Between school, high school athletics and training with his club soccer team in Tampa, the Lecanto senior has few free moments to himself. Those sacrifices, though, helped pave the way for Cortalano to reach one of his biggest goal as he signed less than two weeks ago with Florida College, a coeducational Christian college in Temple Terrace. The Falcons play in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA), which has 86 members across the country. Cortalano was a multiposition player for the Panthers during the 201314 season but said he will play as an outside defender at Florida College. Recently, Cortalano was named Lecantos defensive MVP The Panther hopes his signing helps other players realize they can play after high school. Theres a lot of talent at our school and they dont know how to reach out, Cortalano said. Theres really not very many people out there to help with that. It was my family and my club coaches. Certainly, the sacrifices made Cortalano often attended school, then drove or rode to club soccer practice in Tampa, worked out and came back to Citrus County late at night put the teenager in the position hes in now. While acknowledging the difficulties of such a setup, Cortalano shrugged it off. Theres times where I would have (my mom) drive and I was studying, taking notes, doing projects in the car on the way there, he said. Thats a student-athlete though. Its our job to be able to do both. Besides the soccer, Cortalano picked Florida College because of its academics; he will be a pre-med student. Also, the future Falcon said the chance to play early on stoked his interest. Another selling point was (the coach) thought I had a chance of starting and making an impact as soon as I get there, Cortalano said. They play a 4-2-3-1 formation ... Ill fit in really well.Jon-Michael Soracchi is the Chronicle sports editor. He can be emailed at jmsoracchi@chronicle online.com or reached at 352-564-2928.

Associated PressThe Chicago Blackhawks Joakim Nordstrom, left, and the Columbus Blue Jackets RJ Umberger chase a loose puck during the second period Friday in Columbus, Ohio. Associated PressCOLUMBUS, Ohio Ben Smith tapped in a rebound with 3.7 seconds left on a wild scrum to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 4-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night. With time running out, Duncan Keith threw the puck on net and goalie Sergei Bobrovsky blocked it with his arm but it popped out of his reach. While he and two teammates scrambled to get to the loose puck, Smith got a stick on it and pushed it into the net. Jeremy Morin, Patrick Sharp and Marian Hossa also had goals for Chicago, and Keith had three assists. Antti Raanta had 24 saves. Derek MacKenzie, Ryan Johansen and Artem Anisimov scored for Columbus, in the middle of a fight for the playoffs and in dire need of points. Bobrovsky had 34 saves.Flames 2, Panthers 1SUNRISE Mike Cammalleri scored the tiebreaking goal in the second period and the Calgary Flames beat the Florida Panthers 2-1. Kenny Agostino also scored for Calgary and Joey MacDonald stopped 34 shots. Vincent Trocheck scored for the Panthers, and Roberto Luongo made 15 saves. Luongo started his first game since March 27th against Carolina when he left after the first period following a collision with the Hurricanes Radek Dvorak. Luongo sustained a mild concussion and missed three games. The Flames won their second straight and fifth in their last eight. The Panthers have lost five straight and eight of nine.Devils 2, Capitals 1NEWARK, N.J. Ryan Carter scored the tiebreaking goal with 4:54 remaining to lift the New Jersey Devils to a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals. Tuomo Ruutu also scored for New Jersey, and Cory Schneider made 24 saves. Alex Ovechkin scored for Washington, which lost its fifth straight. Jaroslav Halak stopped 29 shots. On the game-winner, Carter was sprung by a leading pass from Marek Zidlicky, and he snapped a shot that eluded Halak.Red Wings 3, Sabres 2DETROIT Daniel Alfredsson had a goal and an assist and the Detroit Red Wings held off the Buffalo Sabres 3-2. Darren Helm and Tomas Jurco also scored for Detroit. Danny DeKeyser had two assists and Jimmy Howard made 21 saves. It was Red Wings coach Mike Babcocks 413 win for Detroit, which ties him with Jack Adams for the all-time franchise record. Jamie McBain scored and Nicolas Deslauriers got his first career goal for Buffalo, which has the NHLs worst record. Matt Hackett stopped 28 shots.Canadiens 7, Senators 4MONTREAL Max Pacioretty had a hat trick as the Montreal Canadiens scored seven straight goals to rally for a 7-4 win over the Ottawa Senators. Andrei Markov, Mike Weaver, Lars Eller and David Desharnais also scored for Montreal, which trailed 3-0 less than 6 minutes into the game. Peter Budaj stopped 39 shots for his 10th win of the season for the Canadiens. Zack Smith had two goals for Ottawa, while Ales Hemsky and Mika Zibanejad also scored. Craig Anderson stopped 16 of the 23 shots he faced. Pacioretty completed his hat trick at 1:09 of the third and Desharnais made it 7-3 midway through the final period by beating Anderson up high. The Senators got on the board again with 5:53 remaining as Zibanejad beat Budaj.Jackets likely to lose FolignoCOLUMBUS, Ohio Nick Foligno may miss the final six games of the regular season with a lower-body injury, leaving the Columbus Blue Jackets without one of their leaders in the thick of a playoff race. Foligno has 18 goals, 21 assists and a plus-5 rating in 70 games. He was hurt late in Thursday nights 2-0 victory at Philadelphia when he banged knees with Flyers forward Scott Hartnell. Coach Todd Richards said its more than likely Foligno will miss the rest of the teams regular-season games. Smiths late goal lifts Chicago Heat melt in OT Wolves win wild affair Associated PressMIAMI Corey Brewer hit one of two free throws with 1.8 seconds left in the second overtime, and the Minnesota Timberwolves beat the Miami Heat 122121 on Friday night. Kevin Love scored 28 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for Minnesota, which got 24 from Chase Budinger, 15 from Gorgui Dieng and 13 apiece from JJ Barea and Ricky Rubio, who also added 14 assists. Referee Ken Mauer called the last foul on Miamis Norris Cole, saying he hit Brewer on a pass into the paint. Ray Allen missed a wild jumper as time expired for Miami, which blew a chance to move two games clear of Indiana in the loss column atop the Eastern Conference standings. LeBron James scored 34 points for the Heat.Bobcats 91, Magic 80CHARLOTTE, N.C. Al Jefferson had 29 points and 16 rebounds, and the Charlotte Bobcats held off a fourth-quarter rally to beat the Orlando Magic 91-80. Kemba Walker added 13 points and 10 assists, Anthony Tolliver scored 13 points and Gary Neal 12 for the Bobcats, who at 38-38 are back at .500 for the first time since Nov. 23, when they were 7-7. Victor Oladipo scored 21 points and three others finished in double figures for the Magic, who shot just 35.6 percent from the field and made 3 of 11 3-pointers.Hawks 117, Cavaliers 98ATLANTA Mike Scott ended a scoring slump with 26 points and the Atlanta Hawks beat Cleveland 117-98 in a costly setback for the Cavaliers late-season playoff push. The Hawks, who began the night percentage points behind the New York Knicks in the race for the eighth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, set a season high with 39 first-quarter points and never trailed. Dion Waiters led Cleveland with 23 points. Spencer Hawes had 16 points and 10 rebounds and Kyrie Irving and Luol Deng each had 13.Nets 116, Pistons 104NEW YORK Shaun Livingston scored 23 points, Mirza Teletovic made six 3-pointers and added 20, and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Detroit Pistons 116-104 to extend their home winning streak to 15 games.

The Pistons, who once trailed by 22, cut the deficit to nine at one point in the fourth quarter, led by Andre Drummond, who scored 23 and pulled down 18 boards. But Brooklyn was too balanced, putting six players scored in double figures.Grizzlies 100, Nuggets 92MEMPHIS, Tenn.

Tayshaun Prince scored 12 before leaving with an ankle injury in the first half and Courtney Lee scored 10 for Memphis, which won its 11th straight home game. Randy Foye led the Nuggets with 21 points, one of five Denver players in double figures.Wizards 90, Knicks 89NEW YORK Bradley Beal made the go-ahead jumper with 22 seconds left and scored 28 points, and the Washington Wizards took advantage of nine turnovers by Carmelo Anthony to edge the New York Knicks, 90-89. Wall added 19 points, combining with Beal for Washingtons final 12. The loss dropped the Knicks out of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, with the struggling Atlanta Hawks taking a one-game lead after beating the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier Friday. J.R. Smith scored a season-high 32 points for the Knicks.76ers 111, Celtics 102BOSTON Michael Carter-Williams scored eight of his 24 points in the fourth quarter and Henry Sims had career-highs with 24 points and nine rebounds and the Philadelphia 76ers celebrated their second victory in less than a week, beating the Boston Celtics 111-102.

KENTUCKYROAD TO THE FINAL FOUR: No. 8 Kentucky beat No. 9 Kansas State 56-49; beat No. 1 Wichita State 78-76; beat No. 4 Louisville 74-69; beat No. 2 Michigan 75-72 STAR: Julius Randle led the nation in doubledoubles this season with his 16 points and 11 rebounds in the regional final his 24th of the season and fourth in as many NCAA tournament games. He is shooting 49.9 percent for the season and is averaging 15.1 points and 10.7 rebounds. He was selected most outstanding player in the Midwest Regional. COACH: John Calipari is in the Final Four for the fifth time and the third with Kentucky. He led the Wildcats to the national championship in 2012. Known for his outstanding recruiting ability, he has taken a team that starts five freshmen to the Final Four, a feat last matched by Michigans Fab Five in 1992. Kentucky has a 34-9 record in March under Calipari and since 2005-06 no coach in Division I has as many wins as his 286 and thats with just 49 losses. KEY POINT: The Wildcats were ranked No. 1 in the preseason poll based on the talented freshman class that Calipari recruited. Some rough patches saw Kentucky drop out of the Top 25 near the end of the regular season, but the Wildcats turned things around and reached the Final Four. Randle stayed steady, but the Harrison twins, Andrew and Aaron, started taking care of the ball and the entire team picked it up on the defensive end. WISCONSINROAD TO THE FINAL FOUR: No. 2 Wisconsin beat No. 15 American 75-35; beat No. 7 Oregon 85-77; beat No. 6 Baylor 69-52; beat No. 1 Arizona 64-63, OT. STAR: Frank Kaminsky has carried the Badgers to the Final Four. The 7-foot junior led Wisconsin in the four NCAA tournament games in scoring (18.5) and rebounding (6.0). He is a big man who can play inside and hit three 3-pointers as he did in the regional final, finishing with 28 points and 11 rebounds. COACH: Bo Ryan is familiar with winning it all as he led Wisconsin-Platteville to four Division III national championships. This is his first Final Four on the Division I level. He has taken the Badgers to the NCAA tournament in each of his 13 seasons at Wisconsin. The Badgers have finished in the top 10 nationally in scoring defense in nine of the last 11 years, including finishing first in 2008 and 2012. KEY POINT: While Ryans teams have been known for their defense, this version of the Badgers not only take care of the ball leading the nation at 8.1 turnovers per game but they score as well. Their average of 73.9 points per game is the highest for a Wisconsin team since 1994 and its not just one or two players. Six Badgers led the team in scoring this season and each of them did it at least three times. No team outside the Big Ten beat the Badgers this season. CONNECTICUTROAD TO THE FINAL FOUR: No. 7 Connecticut beat No. 10 Saint Josephs 89-81, OT; beat No. 2 Villanova 77-65; beat No. 3 Iowa State 81-76; beat No. 4 Michigan State 60-54. STAR: Senior guard Shabazz Napier was a first-team All-America selection and was the American Athletic Conference player of the year. The 6foot-1 Napier leads the Huskies in scoring (18.1), rebounds (5.9), assists (4.9) and steals (1.7). Shot a career-best 39.9 percent from 3-point range this season and that included a careerbest seven 3s against Rutgers. He is the only Connecticut player to ever have 1,500 points and 500 assists in a career. COACH: Kevin Ollie, the hand-picked successor to Naismith Memorial Hall of Famer Jim Calhoun, took the Huskies to the Final Four in the first season they were eligible under him. They were banned from the NCAA tournament last year because of failure to meet academic standards. Ollie was on Calhouns staff for two seasons after a 13-year NBA career. KEY POINT: This is the second Final Four for the seniors as the Huskies won it all when they were freshmen in 2011. Connecticut isnt deep, with four starters averaging at least 33 minutes per game in the NCAA tournament. The Huskies did have a bit of a home-court advantage in the East Regional at Madison Square Garden. DeAndre Daniels stepped up with a 27-point, 10-rebound effort against Iowa State and the front line did an effective job against Michigan State in the regional final. FLORIDAROAD TO THE FINAL FOUR: No. 1 Florida beat No. 16 Albany 67-55; beat No. 9 Pittsburgh 61-45; beat No. 4 UCLA 79-68; beat No. 11 Dayton 62-52. STAR: Scottie Wilbekin averaged 16.8 points in being selected South Regional most outstanding player. The senior guard was the Southeastern Conference player of the year. Considered one of the top perimeter defenders in the nation, he is also the Gators top playmaker and is averaging 34 minutes per game. He has scored in double figures in the Gators last eight games and that included a season highmatching 23 in the regional final. COACH: Billy Donovan could move into some select company if the Gators win it all, as only five coaches have won three or more national championships. This is the fourth time Donovan has taken the Gators to the Final Four, including consecutive titles in 2006 and 2007. He was selected SEC coach of the year for the third time this season after taking the Gators through an unbeaten conference season. He is completing his 18th season at Florida and he is making his 15th appearance in the NCAA tournament. KEY POINT: The Gators have won 30 consecutive games, a streak that dates to a Dec. 2 loss at Connecticut. With four seniors in the rotation, Florida is one of the most experienced teams in the country. Wilbekin and Michael Frazier II are a more than solid backcourt and the frontcourt is versatile with the power inside of Patric Young and the wing scoring of Dorian Finney-Smith and Casey Prather.B6SATURDAY, APRIL5, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENCAA TOURNAMENT Kentuckys Aaron Harrison has blossomed late in his freshman season and hit the big 3-pointer against Michigan to send the Wildcats into the Final Four.Associated Press Wisconsin 7-foot forward Frank Kaminsky is as big of a threat from the outside as he is inside for the Badgers.Associated Press Florida forward Casey Prather is one of four seniors for the Gators who have led the team back to the Final Four after three straight Elite Eight defeats.Associated Press Connecticuts Shabazz Napier has put the Huskies on his back this postseason, much like Kemba Walker did in 2011, when UConn went on to win the title.Associated Press Florida Gators rosterCoach: Billy Donovan PosHtWtYrHometown 0 Kasey Hill G6-1181Fr Umatilla 4 Patric YoungC6-9240SrJacksonville 5 Scottie WilbekinG6-2176Sr Gainesville 10 Dorian Finney-SmithF6-8212SoPortsmouth, Va. 11 Lexx EdwardsG6-2225So Orlando 15 Will YegueteF6-8230SrBordeaux, France 20 Michael Frazier IIG6-4199So Tampa 23 Chris WalkerF6-10220Fr Bonifay 24 Casey PratherF6-6212SrJackson, Tenn. 25 DeVon WalkerG/F6-6195SoWinter Haven 30 Jacob KurtzF6-6210Jr Oviedo 42 Billy DonovanG6-2195Jr Gainesville UConn Huskies rosterCoach: Kevin Ollie PosHtWtYr Hometown 0 Phillip NolanF6-10212So Milwaukee 2 DeAndre DanielsF6-9195JrLos Angeles 3 Terrence SamuelG6-4190FrBrooklyn, N.Y. 5 Niels GiffeyG/F6-7205SrBerlin, Germany 10 Tyler OlanderF6-10230SrMansfield, Conn. 11 Ryan BoatrightG6-0168Jr Aurora, Ill. 12 Kentan FaceyF6-9200FrTrelawny, Jamaica 13 Shabazz NapierG6-1180SrRoxbury, Mass. 14 Pat LenehanG6-3181JrMiddletown, Conn. 20 Lasan KromahG/F6-6201GrGreenbelt, Md. 21 Omar CalhounG6-6200SoBrooklyn, N.Y. 22 Leon TolksdorfF6-8218SoBerlin, Germany 23 Nnamdi AmiloG6-2200SoNew Fairfield, Conn. 25 Tor Watts G6-1202SrBrooklyn, N.Y. 35 Amida BrimahC7-0217FrAccra, Ghana Wisconsin Badgers rosterCoach: Bo Ryan PosHtWtYr Hometown 1 Ben Brust G6-1196SrHawthorn Woods, Ill. 10 Nigel HayesF6-7250FrToledo, Ohio 11 Jordan Hill G6-3170FrPasadena, Calif. 12 Traevon JacksonG6-2208JrWesterville, Ohio 13 Duje DukanF6-9220JrDeerfield, Ill. 15 Sam DekkerF6-7220SoSheboygan, Wis. 21 Josh GasserG6-3190JrPort Washington, Wis. 24 Bronson KoenigG6-3190FrLa Crosse, Wis. 30 Vitto BrownF6-8237FrBowling Green, Ohio 32 Evan AndersonC6-10245JrStanley, Wis. 34 Zach BohannonF6-6206SrMarion, Iowa 44 Frank KaminskyF7-0234Jr Lisle, Ill.

Perhaps one of the most poetic and familiar passages in the gospels is the beatitudes from Jesus Sermon on the Mount. Jesus gathered his disciples together to teach them and began by saying, Blessed are the and then told them why they were blessed. For example, he said the poor in spirit are blessed because they would richly receive Gods kingdom; those who mourn are blessed because they would be comforted. The merciful would be shown mercy and the pure of heart would see God. I have a few beatitudes of my own that Id like to add to the list: Blessed are those who can sit still in a quiet room without a Tasmanian devil inside their brain making them crazy and upping their stress. As I write this, the house is quiet. Its raining and theres thunder rumbling in the distance. Its a perfect time to be still and let God speak, but my mind wont let me. Im thinking ahead to what needs to be done next week when what I should be thinking about is what God has done for me today. Once I met a woman who lived in complete solitude no radio, no TV. Her house was so silent you could hear her cats soft paws treading on her tile floor. This woman spoke slowly. Quietly. Deliberately. Gently. Softly. Drove me nuts!Come on, honey, pick up the pace,I wanted to say. Seventeenth-century philosopher Blaise Pascal said that all human evil results from us not being able to sit still in a room. I dont know if thats true, but God once said and still says Be still. He says, In repentance and rest is your salvation. In quietness and trust is your strength (Isaiah 30:15). I think the fear of stillness is the fear of hearing God speak, that he just might say Im a disappointment. But thats a lie. There is therefore no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1). Next time its quiet maybe Ill sit still long enough to hear that. Blessed are the skeptics and doubters, for God seems to take great delight in surprising their socks off. One of my favorite Bible people is Thomas, a disciple of Jesus who was a bit of a buzz kill. Nicknamed Doubting Thomas, he tended to see the glass halfempty and expect the worst. When the other disciples were giddy with the news that Jesus had risen from the dead, Thomas said he wouldnt believe it unless he could physically touch the Saviors wounds. Poof! Jesus appeared to him and invited Thomas to take a poke. Jesus couldve chastised him for not believing, but he didnt. He loved Thomas, despite his unbelief. I totally get Thomas. Even though Ive written two books on prayer, I truly dont believe God answers my prayers and then he goes and does and Im left sockless and filled with awe. Each time that happens Im humbled and amazed and a little bit ashamed to realize afresh how kind and merciful God is to me. In a similar vein, blessed are the little of faith, for even alittle is enough. Jesus said if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, which is teeny tiny, you can move a mountain, and we all have mountains that need moving. Its a true saying that its not the size of your faith that counts, but what or who your faith is in. Mine is in Jesus, and hes the one who created and sustains the whole world. Even so, sometimes I cant help but try to move mountains by myself, and frankly, that rarely (never) works out. Blessed are the truly contrite, for God shall make them LOL, or at least grin like a Cheshire cat. I firmly believe that only those who know and are well-acquainted with the depth of their sin and the extent of their unrighteousness can fully appreciate the greatness and the magnitude of Gods grace and forgiveness. If you only see yourself as a small sinner, Gods grace is small, too, and what joy is there in that? But for those who see themselves as great sinners, theres no better reason to laugh the laughter of the forgiven and redeemed. Weeks before the holiday, the house gets a through cleaning. Special attention is given to any furniture, especially where crumbs could collect such as couches and easy chairs, as the house must be rid of hametz, that is, all traces of leavened food, as this is forbidden during Passover. When the cabinets are cleared of leavened foods, such as crackers and cereal, they are boxed up and either stored away in the basement, given to a non-Jew to hold during the holiday or sold to a non-Jew, so that the hametz no longer belongs to the Jew. Special Passover food inspected by rabbis to be free of leavening is then brought into the house for use during the holiday, which lasts eight days. A curious ritual is performed on the evening before the seder. Crumbs are deliberately spread around doorsills and Jews go searching for the hametz with a candle and a wooden spoon and feather. In order to pronounce the blessing for clearing the house of leaven, some leaven must be found, hence the crumbs. The candle is for illumination; the spoon to collect the crumbs, while the feather sweeps the crumbs into the bowl of the spoon. Of course, you could do this with a flashlight and a Dustbuster, but it just wouldnt be as traditional! The next morning, the collected hametz from the days breakfast and the night before is burned, and the countdown to the seder begins. While the women of the community are busy preparing Passover favorites, such as chicken soup with matzah balls, matzah kugel (stuffing/pudding), sponge cake (made with eggs and matza cake meal) and the ritual foods for the seder plate, the firstborn males (liberal branches also include females) attend a special service of gratitude to God for sparing the firstborn sons (daughters) of the Israelites when God slew the first born sons of the Egyptians on the fateful first night of Passover millennia ago. It is traditional to fast on this day; however, if a portion of the Torah is studied, the fast is excused in a sense, providing food for the soul. The seder itself has fascinating rituals. Each of the 15 steps listed in the haggadah (Passover guidebook) have symbolic meaning, but I especially like those that have been incorporated into the seder in more modern times. There is a traditional custom to open the door for the prophet Elijah, who visits each seder. He is, by Jewish belief, the harbinger of the Messiah or Messianic Age when there will be universal peace. Opening the door for Elijah is very spiritual and mystical, and the time the lights dimmed in our home as the door was opened for the prophet gave us all a start. We later learned my mother had turned on the coffee pot on a circuit with a weak fuse. For a brief while, it was a moment to remember. Some people at this point in the seder, sing the Jewish national anthem, Hatikvah. Others remember the 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust. This is also a commemoration of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, which took place on Passover in 1942. At this point in the seder, many people say prayers for Jews still trapped in countries hostile to them and Jewish beliefs. Since the advent of the State of Israel, these prayers often take the form of social action, such as was the case of the Jews of Russia and Ethiopia during the late 1980s and early s, who were rescued and brought to Israel through the efforts of many Jewish organizations. Children love the custom of the afikomen. In this ritual, a piece of matzah is broken and hidden by the children for use later in the seder. The leader of the seder searches for the matza and pays the children a ransom fee for the matza. The seder is not complete without this piece of matza, and the children love to bargain for their fee. It was a clever way to keep the children awake until the end of the seder. Today, the usual fee is $5, but this depends on the generosity of the leader. At the conclusion of the seder, many people sing special seder songs. Some of these folksongs have 12 verses and some are in a form of Hebrew called Aramaic, a tongue-twister language to sing! Regardless of the customs, the message of Passover is the same; freedom is to be achieved for all peoples. May this Passover bring redemption to all those who are held captive either by beliefs or by physical force and may we all work towards a world at peace.

BRIDGE While todays children know all about emailing and texting and Facebook, Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County also give club members experiences that are about connecting with real people. At each of the three club sites, boys and girls age 11 to 13 years of age, form Torch Clubs chartered through Boys & Girls Clubs of America. These are small group leadership and service clubs that help meet the developmental needs of a young adolescent, providing ways to help a community that are fun for those involved as well as purposeful. Do you remember that warm inner glow you felt the first time you purposefully did something nice for someone else? It wasnt just the fact that the person appreciated what you did that made you feel good. It was your feeling of giving and connecting with another person that created that glow. Torch Club experiences in giving back to the community and that good inner feeling that service for others gives you are an important part of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County leadership program. For most children, Torch Club is their very first experience with electing officers and planning and implementing events with others. In addition to service to the community and their clubs, Torch Club projects may include education, health and fitness and recreation. We believe making that community connection is important to a persons sense of well-being and happiness. At Boys &Girls Clubs we believe people need and want to help one another. Fulfilling that need makes us whole and well-rounded human beings. Torch Clubs are good for Citrus County kids, helping them to develop a sense of community and caring. We invite you to visit one of our club sites located at Inverness, Beverly Hills or halfway between Homosassa and Crystal River and learn more about our Torch Clubs. You will see firsthand how your donations are helping Citrus County kids to grow into community-minded, responsible, caring citizens. During the summer program, Torch Clubs will expand into partnerships with other community organizations and the results will be mindblowing! Experience and youths working together for a common cause are surefire ways to create good community happenings. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County have reached thousands of children since its inception in March 1992 through beforeand after-school, summer and school holiday programs. Every dollar given helps Citrus County kids be all they can be through proven programs such as Torch Clubs, academics, sports and recreation, fitness and nutrition, technology and the arts.

Its a way to help raise funds for research to help find a cure for a disease that touches so many lives. Relays begin with a survivors walk, followed by a caregiver lap while the numerous teams cheer participants on as they walk a victory lap. Then, Relay team members always have someone walking the track afterward, until the event is over the following day. During the evening, luminaries glow around the track to honor those with cancer and those who lost their battle with the disease. All year long, teams in Citrus County raise funds for the American Cancer Society. Anyone can form a team and attend monthly meetings to get motivated and gain ideas on fundraising. Team Hope is one of the Crystal River/Dunnellon Relay teams and is the largest fundraising team in Citrus County, raising more than $20,000 for the 2014 Relay, according to team captain Michele Snellings, a senior administrative assistant for Duke Energy and a cancer survivor. The team has 13 current members who Snellings said, are like a big family and who are passionate about fighting cancer. One of Team Hopes yearly fundraisers is a golf tournament, which netted about $14,000 this year. The Feb. 8 event was a huge success, said Snellings, despite the uncooperative cold rainy weather. We had 36 teams that played golf on Feb. 8 at this years fourth annual golf tournament, Snellings said. How amazing. Other Team Hope events include a yearly fall fishing tournament that has both adult and childrens divisions at Homosassa Riverside Resort, a yearly softball tournament and an event at Just A Cupcake in the Heritage Village in Crystal River. During the fishing tournaments, the Florida Game and Fish Commission gives out handouts for the kids and awareness packets for the catch and release programs, Snellings said. Team Hope also coordinates lunch at the fishing tournament and offers raffle prizes for a funfilled family day. Snellings is a 14-year cancer survivor who has been involved in Relay For Life for 14 years. I was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2000 and now I have been given the chance to make a difference by celebrating more birthdays and honoring all the survivors and helping to remember those who didnt survive, Snellings said. We all have family, friends, neighbors and coworkers who have or who have had cancer. The Crystal River/Dunnellon Relay For Life is scheduled for Friday, April 25, at Crystal River High School. Come join the fun and help us finish the fight! Snellings said.

SATURDAY, APRIL5, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Henry David Thoreau, a writer who, inter alia, railed against taxes, said, A simple and independent mind does not toil at the bidding of any prince. Here is a deal in which an opponents bidding helps declarer to find the winning line of play. South is in three no-trump. West leads the spade queen. What should declarer do? When Wests one-spade opening was passed around to South, he made a takeout double. West rebid in his second five-card suit. Then North bravely advanced with three clubs. And South took a shot at three no-trump, knowing it was extremely unlikely that this contract would fail and five clubs would succeed. Declarer starts with six top tricks: two spades, two hearts and two clubs. If he can play the clubs without loss, he will be home. But who has the club queen? There are only 15 high-card points missing, which might lead South to think West holds that key card. However, Wests bidding suggests that East is the favorite because West has so many more spades and diamonds than East. To try to cover all bases, declarer should lead the club jack from his hand. First, if West has queen-doubleton, he might cover. And in case West is void of clubs, South is unblocking the suit. Here, when West discards, declarer wins with dummys king, runs the club nine, plays a club to his 10, and cashes the club ace. Then South leads a heart to dummys ace and cashes the last club. With two major-suit winners still nestling in his hand, the contract is home.

My grandson, who is 8, has talked back to his mother for as long as I can remember. She didnt discipline him as I would have with a good spanking. My daughter is divorced from the boys father. The father remarried and has custody because my daughter couldnt handle him. The boy now tells her that he doesnt want her to attend his school functions. My daughter does not get informed of any of his school functions or conferences or any other things going on in his life. The father badmouths my daughter in front of my grandson. What exactly should she do with respect to correcting her son? Its getting so out of hand that I fear for her future relationship with him. Should I step in? These parents are in their 30s and should be able to figure these things out themselves. Grandma Who Is Just a Little Worried Dear Grandma: Your grandson shows disrespect toward his mother because that is what he learns from his father. His father has cut your daughter off from being involved in her sons school activities. This is known as parental alienation and should not be permitted. You certainly could speak to your grandson when you see him and gently help him see that his mother loves him and should be treated better. Your daughter, however, should speak to her lawyer. Dear Annie: Thanks for printing the letter from Joining the Letting Go Club, who feel rejected by their grown children. One part of the letter got my attention the part where they say theyve had minor disagreements at times, but nothing so major as to cut off contact. I have had this same situation with my family, and honestly, sometimes the disagreements arent as minor as the folks believe. Sometimes disagreements are downplayed to avoid dealing with the hurt feelings and poor communication between family members. The grown children may feel they cant talk to their parents because of negative and heated exchanges in the past. Nonetheless, I do agree that the grown children need to tell their parents why they dont have any contact, even if it upsets the parents. They have a right to know. Several years after a falling out, I reached out to my family members. Over time, we were able to rebuild our relationship, and last year, we had a wonderful Christmas holiday together. I greatly appreciate the special relationship my children now have with their grandparents. Sometimes you have to be the bigger person and do what is best for the family even if you dont always agree. No State Dear No: How heartwarming that you took that first step not only for your sake, but for that of your children. Heres more on the subject: From Florida: My husband and I could have written that letter. We know how totally rejected, unloved and lonely they feel. We commend these parents for loving their children so much that they can forgive them and let go. This is because their childrens happiness is more important to them than their own. After much reflection, we have concluded that we gave our children too much and sacrificed too much, and our children lost respect for us. Arizona: The same thing happened to us. We have no idea why our three children are so angry. We never would have treated our parents this way, and they were not without their faults. We lost our only son 18 months ago, and his wife tried to keep us from his funeral and took our flowers off of his grave. God will take care of this in the end.Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
