CHRISVANORMER Staff writerBEVERLY HILLS How the Duke Energy legal settlement will affect next years property taxes and whether it was a negotiated surrender were questions for the county property appraiser last week at a citizens gathering. Last month, Citrus County Property Appraiser Les Cook and Duke Energy settled two lawsuits amounting to billions of dollars in taxable value at the companys power plant in Crystal River. The settlements should result in about $7.5million in additional funds split among the school board, county commission and other taxing districts, Cook said. Plus, Cook and Duke agreed to the companys 2014 taxable value, avoiding a third lawsuit from the company and providing stability for taxing districts as they begin preparing budgets for next year. How much of this recovery is going to go toward reducing the millage rate?

Become our fan @ facebook.com/citruscountychronicle and leave your comment on our Question of the Week post. Some businesses around the nation are now refusing to serve young men wearing sagging pants. Is that fair? Dont people have a right to wear whatever they want? Question of the Week Maureen Barton Bissonette They should be banned. I sure dont want to see their butts. They need to respect others even if they dont respect themselves. Jennifer Lin Jacobs You have the right to wear what you want, but I have the right to refuse service to anyone. Rick Fein As much as I find it distasteful, its simply self expression, much like long hair when I grew up. But I saw a great cartoon today of a senior woman saying to a baggy pants person You must be very proud for losing so much weight. Debbie Robinson I remember back in the s it was no shoes no service. So we didnt like that cause most of us hippies were barefooted, but in order to be waited on, WE put some shoes on. No big deal. Its their business and we had to conform or do without. Alycia Lulenski I dont particularly care for this trend, but how is it different from a girl wearing something revealing? I think calling it indecent exposure or refusing to serve someone because of it is a double standard. Especially during the summer, I see women running around showing more than enough cleavage and shorts that let their buttocks hang out. Whats the difference? Peggy Amoisch Yes its fair! I hate having to look at someones underwear while Im eating my food. Grow up and act your age! NOT CUTE seeing your undies! If old people did that wed be arrested for indecent exposure. PULL THEM UP jerks! Diane AkaFiero Quigley They have the right to wear it, but businesses have the right to refuse service. So they ALL are exercising their rights. My kid is a sagger and I refuse to take him anywhere with me if hes sagging. And thats MY right! POLL ONLINE POLL:Your choice?A Florida House committee last week approved a bill to allow trained officials to carry weapons in schools. Is this wise? A.Yes. Those who carry the weapons would be well-trained and act as a deterrent. B.No. The answer is having more law enforcement officers on campus. C.Yes. Students and faculty would feel safer, and the officials could respond quicker than police. D.No. This is a kneejerk reaction and there are better methods available.

But who cares? CHRISVANORMER Staff writerHernando County Sheriffs Office on Saturday evening called off the ground search for a pilot and his airplane missing for a week. Weve searched for six days and exhausted our efforts, said HCSO spokeswoman Denise Moloney on Sunday. Searchers from several counties and law enforcement agencies have combed the Withlacoochee State Forest for a week for Theodore Weiss, 74, of New York, whose plane disappeared from radar at about 2p.m. April5 shortly after taking off from Dunnellon Airport. Weiss was flying to Zephyrhills where he owns a second home. Tampa radar never picked up on the fixedwing, single-engine Sonex experimental plane, a small, kit-built sports aircraft that costs about $20,000 to purchase and assemble. After a missing persons report was filed Monday afternoon, April 7, with Marion County officials, more than 130 personnel from government agencies searched on the ground in the Withlacoochee State Forest in Citrus County. Searchers went by foot, all-terrain vehicles and horseback, and came from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and sheriffs offices from Citrus, Hernando, Lake, Sumter, Levy and Marion counties. Community Emergency Response Team members from Citrus and Hernando also joined the search. In addition, air Ground search for pilot on hold Duke deal aids county budget Les Cookproperty appraiser. So much more than books MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleDirector of Citrus County Library Services Eric Head says he is right at home on the job. He says two of his favorite things in life are the library and technology, which are integrated in todays library system. Director talks about past, present, future of library system NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerBEVERLY HILLS Eric Head, Citrus County Library System (CCLS) director of library services, grew up at the library. Every day after school, he would walk across the street from Homosassa Elementary to the tiny library behind the fire station where his mother, Wylene Head, worked as a librarian. She retired in 2011 after 35 years. Head, who graduated from Crystal River High School in 1988 and Florida State University with a masters in library and information science in 2003, has one of those dream jobs, the kind that you would do for free just to be around the things you love, and what he loves are books and technology. He calls himself a computer geek and a knowledge junkie. You could add library cheerleader to his rsum. As the nation gears up for National Library Week, April13 to 19, and the CCLS gets ready for the busy summer slate of programs and activities, Eric Head sat down with the Chronicleto talk about the treasure that is the public library. CHRONICLE: You are director of library services whats that? How long have you been director? HEAD: We have five libraries, known as the Citrus County Library System, and the director, especially when it comes to funding issues, oversees all the libraries in the county. Ive been in this position three years, but Ive been with the library for almost 19 years. CHRONICLE: You grew up around here, is that correct? HEAD: I did. Im a native of Citrus County. In fact, I was doing a little genealogy research and found that my greatgrandfather and my great-great-grandfather are both buried in the old cemetery in Crystal River. My family Heads and Locklears has been around Citrus County for five generations. For video, click on this story at www.chronicle online.com.

Parents, children enjoy story timeEditors note: This is National Library Week. Our local Citrus County Library System offers so much more than just books. Each day this week we are telling you about one of the many great things you can do at the library. Chronicle staffAfavorite time for little ones, their parents and the childrens librarians is story hour. Mother Goose Time is a 20minute program of songs, rhymes and finger play for babies and toddlers ages 0 to 30 months. Preschool Story Time with read-aloud stories and music is designed for children ages 2 to 5. Eric Head, director of library services for the Citrus County Library System, said these popular programs draw dozens of kids every week at every branch attendance exceeded 20,000 total of all branches combined last year. Through these programs, youth librarians introduce the concepts of reading and writing, even before the children can actually read, through chanting nursery rhymes, singing songs and reading out loud to the children. As a public library, we play an essential role in supporting early literacy within our community, he said. When a child develops a love of books and reading early in their life, it dramatically increases their chances of success as they prepare to enter pre-kindergarten or kindergarten. Listening to language lays the groundwork for reading. These fundamental concepts serve as major building blocks in the learning process. For a schedule of story times and other childrens activities and programs, visit the CCLS website at www.citrus libraries.org. Calendars are available for the branch library nearest you. Health Insurance for Expatriates: Voting 257-159, the House on April 9 failed to reach a two-thirds majority needed to pass a bill exempting Americans abroad and foreigners working in the U.S. from Affordable Care Act requirements. A yes vote was to pass the bipartisan bill (HR 4414) over arguments it would open a loophole in the 2010 health law for the benefit of certain U.S. insurance companies. Rich Nugent, Yes. Accounting for Credit Programs: The House on April 7 voted, 230-165, to adopt GOP-sponsored accounting rules that would raise the stated cost of direct-loan and loan-guarantee programs in the U.S. budget by giving more weight to risk. Democrats said that to define programs such as student loans as more costly would make them a more inviting target for spending cuts. A yes vote was to send the bill (HR 1872) to the Senate, where it is likely to die. Nugent, Yes. Equal Pay for Women: The House on April 7 defeated, 179-217, a Democratic motion to sidetrack a bill on accounting rules (HR 1872, above) until such time as the Census Bureau reports women have reached equal pay with men for full-time, year-round work. A yes vote backed the measure over a GOP argument it was totally extraneous to the underlying bill. Nugent, No. Republican Spending Rules: The House on April 8 passed, 230-185, a GOP-sponsored bill to remove inflation from calculations that determine the all-important baseline figure in congressional budget deliberations. A yes vote backed the bill (HR 1871) over Democratic arguments it would automatically lock in unwarranted cuts each year in discretionary spending. Nugent, Yes. Veterans, Disabled Children: The House on April 8 defeated, 191-221, a Democratic motion to prevent HR 1871 (above) from triggering spending cuts in programs for student loans, food and aviation safety, veterans' benefits, nursing-home safety and the education of disabled children. A yes vote was to adopt the motion. Nugent, No. 10-Year GOP Budget: The House on April 10 adopted, 219-205, a Republican budget for fiscal 2015-2024 that would reach balance in 10 years, partially privatize Medicare, raise military spending, slash domestic spending and cut corporate and high-end personal tax rates. A yes vote was to adopt H Con Res 96. Nugent, Yes. Democratic Budget: T he House on April 10 defeated, 163-261, the Democratic alternative to a Republican budget (H Con Res 96, above) that would increase taxes on the wealthy, close specific tax loopholes, raise domestic spending and bolster traditional Medicare while not reaching balance over 10 years. A yes vote was to adopt the Democratic budget. Nugent, No. Conservatives' Budget: The House on April 10 defeated, 133-291, a budget plan by the conservative Republican Study Committee that would reach balance by 2018 as a result of steps such as cutting and freezing domestic spending and closing tax loopholes. A yes vote was to adopt the most conservative budget before the House. (H Con Res 96) Nugent, No. Black Caucus Budget: The House on April 9 defeated, 116-300, a Congressional Black Caucus budget (H Con Res 96) that would expand domestic programs, cut military spending and lower deficits by $2.8 trillion by 2024, mainly by raising taxes on the wealthy and closing tax loopholes. A yes vote was to adopt a liberal budget plan. (H Con Res 96) Nugent, No. Extended Jobless Aid: Senators on April 7 passed, 59-38, a bipartisan bill providing aid to millions of the long-term unemployed whose eligibility for extended jobless benefits has expired. The bill would make the benefits available retroactively from Dec. 28 through May 31. A yes vote was to send HR 3979 to the House, where it is likely to be shelved. Bill Nelson, Yes; Marco Rubio, No. Female-Male Pay Equity: The Senate on April 9 failed, 53-44, to reach 60 votes needed to end Republican blockage of a bill by Democrats to close loopholes in the 1963 Equal Pay Act and give women more legal tools for gaining pay equity with male co-workers. A yes vote was to advance S 2199. Nelson, Yes; Rubio, No. Key votes ahead: Congress is in EasterPassover recess until the week of April 28. 2014 Thomas Reports Inc.

June wedding for transportation panels CHRISVANORMER Staff writerThe first joint meeting of the merged transportation groups for two counties is targeted for June, according to officials. Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) is set to join the Hernando County Metropolitan Planning Organization for a combined group this summer. According to Bob Clifford, Executive Director, Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority (TBARTA), and the TPOs consultant for working with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and other government entities in planning for county needs, FDOT approved and sent the MPO apportionment plan to Gov. Rick Scott for final approval and official designation of the HernandoCitrus MPO. We are awaiting the Governors approval no known timeframe for such, Clifford said Thursday. We are presently targeting June3 or 17 as potential dates for the first joint MPO meeting. Once the merged MPO receives approval, it will: Ask each entity to appoint its official member(s) to the Hernando-Citrus MPO. Set up final TPO committee(s) and board meetings to go over the details of the first joint MPO meeting. In the meantime, we have been working closely with Hernando and FDOT staff to transfer all of the pertinent information, develop the interlocal and other agreements, and develop the required MPO work plan, Clifford said. In addition, Clifford said he has been working with staffs of both groups to incorporate Citrus into the current Hernando Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) update. This is critical as the LRTP is the basis for MPO planning and funding decisions. Additionally, we have been communicating and working with FDOT regarding the proposed (in concept) Floral City bypass and WithlacoocheeDunnellon Trail connector projects, Clifford said. The TPO reached out to Hernandos MPO after studying surrounding counties and finding Hernando to be the best fit. The TPO made this move because it received a letter in 2012 from FDOT Secretary Ananth Prasad that said it needed MPO status, giving it a greater voice in regional transportation planning, as 2010 U.S. Census data designated Homosassa Springs, Beverly Hills and Citrus Springs as an urbanized area by population growth.

Birthday Concentrate all your energy on your mental and physical progress. Your prosperity will be determined by how much you are willing to do. Helping others, although admirable, will reduce the time available to make your own dreams come to life. Aries (March 21-April 19) Unexpected costs could cause you to limit your activities. Budget carefully until your bank account improves. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Your friends may be too demanding today. Consider postponing a get-together until you feel confident and able to refuse unwelcome requests. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Take some time to get together with friends. Your energy level is high, and you will be able to keep up with any challenge that comes your way. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Someone is likely to find fault with just about everything you do today. Find a quiet corner and stay out of the way until the tension subsides. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Negotiate household issues fairly. If you want to stay on good terms and achieve equality with your family, roommates or coworkers, get busy and do whats expected of you without complaint. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Think carefully before you speak. Be sure you can live up to the promises you have made. Your reputation could take a tumble if you fail to follow through. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Emotional frustration will tempt you to over indulge. Instead, face problems headon and resolve them openly. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) You may feel that youre in a bit of a slump. Take care of your health with a sensible diet and regular exercise. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If you are too self-absorbed, others will notice and complain. Make an effort to be more attentive. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be diplomatic and let your partner have a say before you voice your feelings. You probably have different points of view. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) You can alleviate boredom by enrolling in a course or seminar that stimulates your interest. Take a trip to your local library. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Form your own opinions instead of following the crowd. Getting involved in a joint venture with a relative could prove costly.

The strong second-week performance for the Walt Disney release in North America was enough to narrowly edge 20th Century Foxs Rio 2 in a springtime battle of sequels. The animated Amazon jungle tale Rio 2 debuted with $39million, according to studio estimates Sunday, almost exactly the opening weekend total of the 2011 Oscar-nominated original. The low-budget supernatural horror film Oculus took in $12million for Relativity Media. The football drama Draft Day, starring Kevin Costner and directed by IvanReitman, debuted weakly with $9.8million. Made with the cooperation of the National Football League, the Lionsgate release is the second movie this year, along with the thriller Days to Kill, to attempt to restore the 59-year-old Costner to leading man status.

The Book of Mormon which stormed London just as it earlier wowed New York won four prizes, including best new musical and best actor in a musical, for Gavin Creel. Choreographer and co-director Casey Nicholaw said the success of the show written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone came down to its blend of good contemporary satire and good oldfashioned entertainment. Lucy Kirkwoods Chimerica, a play about the entwined fates of China and the United States that opens with a search for the protester photographed standing in front of a tank in Tiananmen Square in 1989, won five trophies including best new play and best director, for Lyndsey Turner. Henrik Ibsens Ghosts took prizes for best revival, best actress, for Lesley Manville, and best supporting actor, for Jack Lowden Oh, Larry, where have you been all my life? said a delighted Manville, clutching her statuette a bust of acting legend Laurence Olivier. Director Richard Eyre adapted the play, distilling Ibsens 19th-century script down to an intense, audience-draining 90 minutes. Suicide, euthanasia, feminism, syphilis, morality you name it, its in the play, Eyre said. Sharon D. Clarke took the best-actress trophy for The Amen Corner at the National Theatre. Busker romance Once won the prize for outstanding achievement in music, and its Croatian co-star, Zrinka Cvitesic, was named best actress in a musical.

CHRONICLE: How did you get this job? HEAD: In 1995 when technology was starting to take off in the library, I was in Orlando at the time and moved back here. There was a technicians position available, and with my background in electronics and computers, it just fit. Plus, the library was something Id always loved, having grown up at the library where my mom was a librarian. So, it was wonderful; I got to work in a library andon computers. CHRONICLE: What did you do as a technician? HEAD: Back then, libraries were automating everything. They had just moved away from the punch-card system to everything on a database and started putting terminals everywhere. We actually installed the first three public-access computers in late 1996, bringing the new technology into the library system, which was exciting. CHRONICLE: A few weeks ago, we talked about the late Ren Renfro and his part in starting the library system. Tell me again how it all started. HEAD: When Ren came to Citrus County and started working at the nuclear plant, he wanted better libraries to attract people to the county to work at the plant and raise their families here. So, he and a lot of other local supporters started a push to unify the libraries and get a referendum passed, and it did in 1984. Once that happened, the first two libraries were built, in Crystal River and Inverness. The rest is history. CHRONICLE: Were in the Central Ridge Library in Beverly Hills when was it built? HEAD: That was in 1995. Next came Homosassa after people in the southwest part of the county were pushing for a new library. We opened that one in December 2007. Then we opened Floral City in May 2009. Wed gotten some grant funding for construction just before the economy tanked. CHRONICLE: Besides books, what else goes on here? Do people still read books? HEAD: A lot of people dont realize that were so much more than just books. One of the main focuses is early childhood literacy, so at any of the five libraries theres always a Mother Goose story time for ages 0 to 30 months; pre-school stories for 2to 5-year-olds and Celebrate Reading where we bring in therapy dogs that help kids read aloud. ... We also have adult literacy programs, pre-GED programs and citizenship classes. ... More and more the library is a community gathering place for all kinds of programs. I almost forgot computers we have 130 throughout the five libraries, plus wireless access for people who bring their own devices. Weve offered basic computer classes for over 12 years. And yes, people still read books, in all shapes and sizes. When the e-book craze started, people said we wont need books anymore. But here in Citrus, we still have a tremendous amount of traditional book readers. We check out about 700,000 a year. In the past two years weve checked out about 56,000 e-book titles. We also have 400 to 500 digital audio books people can download to an MP3 format. CHRONICLE: Since were talking numbers, lets talk about money. Whats your annual budget? HEAD: Just under $3million. Last year it was $2.75million. CHRONICLE: Plus, the Friends of the Library help out, right? HEAD: Theyre fantastic. Youre familiar with their book sales. We have five different Friends groups, and altogether they bring in about $100,000 a year to help us buy books and do other projects. We also have great volunteers who put in 22,000 hours every year, and thats equivalent to about 10 or 11 full-time employees. CHRONICLE: How many employees are there? HEAD: We have 52, and about 30 of them are part-time. CHRONICLE: So, National Library Weeks coming up. HEAD: Yes, and this year the theme is Lives Change @ Your Library. One of the things we want to do is give people the opportunity to tell their stories ... about what the library means to them and how its done something for them in their lives. CHRONICLE: Besides this being your career, how has the library changed your life? HEAD: Without the library, I wouldnt know where Id be. Ive always had a curiosity about everything, and the place I could find out information is the library. When I moved to Tampa for school, the first thing I did when I unpacked my one pan and one fork was go to the library to get a library card. Its a place where you can find information on anything, and that always fascinated me. CHRONICLE: This is home for you. HEAD: It is. It really is. Plus, I feel so fortunate to be in a county like Citrus where so many people care about and support the library. CHRONICLE: Anything else you want to say? HEAD: Were really excited to be gearing up for the summer program, which is always a big deal with kids are out of school. This year its all about science with things like Cant Believe Your Eyes about optical illusions, Making Sense of Your Five Senses, building robots and something called Blast Off, where theyre going to create a rocket ... and a lot more. CHRONICLE: Whats the future of the library system? HEAD: Were going to be reexamining everything we do. I dont foresee us building any new buildings in the next few years. Our focus is more on the quality of what goes on inside the buildings, although the Coastal and Lakes libraries are 30-plus years old, so theyll need some renovation work. Were just trying to make our libraries the best that they can be.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at352-564-2927 or nkennedy@chronicleonline. com.LOCAL/STATECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, APRIL14, 2014 A5 527-0012 72 HOUR BLIND FACTORY FAUX WOOD BLINDS, TOP TREATMENTS DRAPERY, SHADES, SHUTTERS VERTICALS B LIND S 1657 W.

Working in Cedar Cove under the Beaches and Mines Grant with the city of Crystal River, Art Jones and his crew of workers hand rake tons of Lyngbya every day the weather and tides allow them to work. Coinciding with Springs Awareness Week, two more small springs vents have been opened up and are flowing again in Kings Bay. As the noxious Lyngbya is physically removed off the bottom in mats up to 2-feet thick, the springs come back to life. The next public cleanup is scheduled from 8to 10a.m. Saturday, April26, at Hunter Springs Park in Crystal River. Sponsored by the Kings Bay Rotary club, everyone is invited to help. Bring water shoes or old sneakers that can get wet, gloves, hats and sunglasses and help clean up the swimming area for the kids and community to enjoy the fresh cool spring waters as the summer heats up. Call Art Jones at 727-642-7659. To see the project in action, search YouTube and Facebook for SaveKingsBay. MONDAYContinued from Page A1 searches were conducted by helicopters from Citrus and Hernando and fixedwing aircrafts from the Civil Air Patrol and the Florida Forest Service. After the ground search was suspended at about 6p.m. Saturday, HCSO said air searches would continue and new ground search requests would be investigated as needed. Based upon the information received from the lead investigative agency and the radar data analyzed by the Civil Air Patrol and U.S. Air Force, we feel that we have exhausted our efforts and diligently searched our ground search area, HCSO stated on its Facebook page. Sheriff Jeff Dawsy and Sheriff Al Nienhuis thanked all the search partners and the community for their tips and patience during the past six days of searching. Questions regarding the investigation should be referred to the Marion County Sheriffs Office: 8a.m. to 5p.m. Monday through Friday, call 352732-8181; 24-hour nonemergency, call 352732-9111; out of Marion County area, call 888440-0347. PILOTContinued from Page A1 Questions about the investigation should be referred to the Marion County Sheriffs Office. was the first question directed to Cook as he spoke to about 50 county residents Wednesday at a meeting of the Citrus County Council, a nonprofit consortium of homeowner associations, civic clubs and environmental groups. Last September, the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners set the ad valorem millage rate at 8.9999mills, an increase of 31.41percent over the previous years millage rate of 7.1033mills. The increase was to make up for about a $9.6million shortfall after Duke Energy disputed it property appraisal. One mill equals $1 for every $1,000 of assessed property value. The property appraiser only has the responsibility to value property, Cook responded. We deliver a value to the taxing authorities. They have to determine what to do with the millage rate. County Commissioner Joe Meek was present to step in with an answer. We cant tell you specifically what that millage rate will be right now, but I can tell you this will be a very beneficial thing for our ability to be able to adjust it, knowing what it is going to be, Meek said. We planned to build this current budget on the millage rate that we are under, based upon worst-case scenario, based upon them only paying what at that time they said they would pay. This (settlement) changes that, so thats a good thing. Well have some flexibility to adjust it. Last years budget was based on a worst-case scenario the lowest sum expected from Duke. Cook said this years tax roll would be higher. The fact that we made the worst-case recommendation and that it was accepted, and it was acted on, was a very prudent thing, Cook said. It kept up stable financially. I couldnt say this settlement keeps us financially stable if those actions werent taken last year. Cook discussed how Dukes legal cases expanded without positive aspects and said his office had to be realistic about the circumstances ahead of them. Ive been receiving a lot of positive comments on the settlement, Cook said. However, I can tell you, as I worked through this decision, I looked at it from both sides. I looked at it from the negative side and the positive side. There has been some negative comment. If someone wants to characterize this as some type of negotiated surrender ... we werent going to get a return on it and it gets us down the road, then fine. Sometimes, its better not to head to the Little Bighorn. According to the National Park Service website, Little Bighorn is the site where, on June 25 and 26 of 1876, 263 soldiers, including Lt. Col. George A. Custer and attached personnel of the U.S. Army, died fighting several thousand Lakota, and Cheyenne warriors. DEALContinued from Page A1

Associated PressMIAMI Diabetics beware. Your insurance company is looking for you. As hundreds of thousands of diabetics get health coverage under the federal law, insurance companies are aggressively targeting this glut of new patients, who are expensive to treat and often lax in taking medications and following their diet. Insurers are calling diabetics when they dont pick up prescriptions or miss appointments. They are arranging transportation to get them to the doctors office and some are even sending nurses on house calls in an effort to avoid costly complications that will have big impact on their bottom lines. Before the Affordable Care Act, some diabetics struggled to find insurance because of their pre-existing condition. But the new law no longer allows companies to refuse them or charge more, making early intervention even more critical. About 60 percent or so people with Type2 diabetes can keep side effects at bay by simply managing sugar levels, exercising and watching their weight, said Dr. Sam Nussbaum, a former endocrinologist at Harvards Massachusetts General Hospital and an executive vice president for the insurer WellPoint. On the flip side, if the disease is ignored, it can lead to multiple, severe complications. Its the leading cause of heart disease, strokes, kidney failure and vision loss. A relatively healthy person with diabetes can cost insurers around $5,000 a year. But if you let any of those long-term, difficult complications develop, then youre talking $100,000 dollars plus, Nussbaum said. About 26 million Americans have diabetes, and two-thirds of them are overweight or obese. Approximately 8percent of Americans are estimated to have the disease, and insurers anticipate at least that percentage of the 7.5million people now insured under the federal law will have diabetes. Shelley Dayman, who lives in an Orlando suburb, has struggled for years to manage her disease, in part because loves to bake and eat her sweet creations. A few years ago, the 62-year-old woman lost her foot in a car accident. Doctors reattached it, but she uses a wheelchair and cant exercise. She lost her job, her health insurance and started stretching her insulin because she couldnt afford it. Last year, she was rushed to the hospital after she started talking gibberish while on the phone with her sister. Daymans blood sugar was off and she spent an expensive two days in the hospital. My insulin was the last thing I was thinking about, said Dayman, describing the struggle many diabetics have managing their disease and life events. She recently gained insurance under the Affordable Care Act, finding a Humana plan that costs less than $2 a month thanks to a $574 tax credit. While her new insurer hasnt come calling yet, she can probably expect it if she gets out of line. Insurers already have a bevy of programs tailored to diabetics, and they are starting new ones. WellPoint started recruiting diabetics last fall, when the health care law took effect, to a six-week program. The workshops in Atlanta, Indianapolis and St. Louis cover everything from monitoring sugar levels to finding emotional support. Early results have been positive. Youre talking about an improved quality of life, but a lot less expenses related to chronic conditions that develop later .... hypertension, end-stage renal disease, lots of different conditions, said Kathy English, a former nurse who is spearheading the program. Sarah Luke, 73, said she struggled to manage her weight and sugar levels after being diagnosed with diabetes six years ago, with each failed attempt leaving her more discouraged. The Kennesaw, Ga., woman saw a flier and decided to give it a try. The workshops focus on a single goal each week, making it easier by teaming up with a fellow diabetic known as an accountability partner. By week two, she was drinking more water and had cut dietCoke and artificial sweeteners from her diet. By the end of the program, Luke had lost 11 pounds and was exercising four times a week. Her blood pressure is actually lower now than it was when she was taking medication. I owe a lot to this workshop. Its changing my life, said a teary Luke. Every single week I felt a sense of accomplishment that gave me courage to go to the next level. Insurers have gotten savvy figuring out patients who skip appointments or arent taking their medicine, and many have customized plans for diabetics that offer everything from pharmacy home delivery services to home health aides. In Cignas current program, where the majority of consumers are new to insurance, a nurse might go to a patients house for a head-to-toe assessment, even checking toenails for infections. That might seem small, but an infection can make havoc on blood sugars, said Christine Crowe, a nurse who oversees the program. Managing insulin pumps, periodic eye exams and other care can be overwhelming for patients. But Cignas program boasts a 42 percent lower hospital admission rate and a 24 percent lower short-term complication rate. Were using every opportunity to cast the net wide ... because we know there may be gaps or lapses, said Crowe. Associated PressCAPE CANAVERAL NASA is pressing ahead with Mondays planned launch of a supply ship despite a critical computer outage at the International Space Station, promising the situation is safe. Mission managers decided Sunday to proceed with the countdown for the SpaceX capsule, Dragon, already a month late in delivering more than 2tons of cargo. Were good to go, said NASA space station program manager Mike Suffredini. Suffredini noted the many important supplies aboard the Dragon, including a new spacesuit and repair parts for the older spacesuits already in orbit. Muchneeded food is also packed away. Theres a certain amount of urgency to go ahead and get these vehicles at the space station, he told reporters. These shipments have to fit around other space station operations, like crew comings and goings. Things start to bunch up, Suffredini said, and so were just trying to fly as soon as we safely can, which is what we believe were doing. This backup computer, located on the outside of the space station, mysteriously failed to work when activated Friday. The main computer kept operating perfectly, and the six-man crew was never in any danger. NASA debated whether to delay the SpaceX mission and, on Sunday, determined the station has sufficient redundancy to safely support the visiting vessel. A spacewalk will be required, meanwhile, to replace the bad computer. Engineers dont know why it failed. An April 22 spacewalk will give SpaceX two chances to get its unmanned Dragon capsule flying. Good weather is forecast for todays 4:58p.m. launch. If that doesnt work, the next launch attempt for the California companys Falcon rocket would come Friday.STATECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, APRIL14, 2014 A7 000HUBR 000HP5H Easter Coloring Pages are due TODAY Dont forget to come see the Easter Bunny at the Crystal River Mall.

Another solicitorWe agree with the person who complained about getting phone calls that show up as Caller Unknown or Florida Call or Not Provided, etc., on our Caller ID. We wont answer calls, either, that dont show a name. But guess what? When these people get our recording telling them to leave a message, they just hang up. That tells us that they are just another solicitor trying to sell something, not caring that they are annoying to people who arent interested in their junk. We are on the Do Not Call list, but we still get these unwanted calls. This is why Caller ID is worth the extra money on our phone bill.No vote by mailI would like to know who we could call or write to stop this voting by mail. Thats controlling everything and we cant be sure that its being done honestly. So who do we complain to to stop this mail bit? Because I certainly wont vote by mail. If youre too lazy to get up and vote for your country, maybe you shouldnt be voting. Crime of the centuryIm calling to report a theft. I have a small car for sale close to Croft Avenue on (State Road) 44. Anyway, one of the For Sale signs on the side had my phone number, the other one was a blank one. It cost a whole 92 cents at Walmart. Ill be a son of a gun if somebody didnt steal that. What kind of a society do we live in that theyd steal a 92-cent For Sale sign? God help this nation.Always an excuseIt appears that there will always be a goody-twoshoes who can find an excuse for someone to live in the woods whether it be insanity, medical or just plain laziness. There is help for them. All they have to do is get it, but that is too much effort, right?Read between the linesThis is for the (person) who put the Sound Off in the paper about smoking marijuana for over 30 years and hes commenting on a statement that was made that marijuana smoking makes you sterile. Hes bragging about his 31-year-old son with a masters degree. Well, his kid may be all right, but I think smoking has affected this persons brain because to make a statement like that in the paper, about how he smokes marijuana for all these years and his kids a genius, shows the level of mentality. ... I think marijuana has had a big effect on him, if you just read between the lines.Double standardThere appears to be a double standard developing in Sugarmill Woods. It appears that the new assisted living facility and its associated properties are OK, yet we cant build a stub out. It baffles me. So somebody would have to tell me the difference between development within Citrus County over Sugarmill Woods.Ashamed of PinellasIm so ashamed of my former county, Pinellas. They voted for a man who wants to put our Social Security in the stock market. The consensus is that people just did not vote, meaning the elderly.Waste of overtimeI just wanted to mention that yesterday, Sunday, March 23, I saw two trucks, four workers, one small paint machine, repainting the orange line on (County Road) 491 in Beverly Hills. It seems to me that this is not an emergency and could it be done on a normal workday instead of the highway department having this work done as an overtime day? Just food for thought. Seems to me that this is an extra expense at the taxpayers expense.Recovery awaitsThere are several churches in the area holding meetings for those who are on the road to recovery. These people are also attending religious services. Spiritual recovery is important and helps give one strength to overcome. Everyone deserves another chance. May the Lord look over you folks as you forge ahead into a new life. Also, thank you to the ministers and the members of the church who are praying for you.On second thought So you want to close Three Sisters Springs for the winter. I have a better idea. Just put up 100 Tourists not welcome signs all over Citrus County. That will keep the humans away.Not worth $4MAs a 40-year-plus taxpaying citizen who cannot attend the BOCC meeting about buying the government building in Meadowcrest because I work, I would like to use this venue to express my views. First, two years ago when this first started, the county said it was a great deal and would fix our problem for many years. Now two years later, its all changed. Next, if you compare the sale of the Plantation resort two years ago vs. the $4 million price tag for this 25-year-old building, anyone can see that it is too much. ... Cover the loadsTo the drivers who are riding on (State Road) 44 going west: Now I understand why we have all this trash on the side of the roads. I was coming west going toward Lecanto when I had this roofing truck in front of me with tons of garbage blowing out of the back of his truck and he didnt even bother to cover the load. I mean, it was like having rockets flying at our windshield. I mean, I dont understand it. When are people going to wake up and start covering their loads? If the police were monitoring this road, wed have less trash on the highway here. I think somebody ought to do something about it.Golden showOn Golden Pond, the Art Center presentation of this play was very good; sad at times, but also lots of fun. The actors all were great and Sharon Harris did a good job as director. The play is a little different than the movie was, but well worth seeing. ... So go and see them all and enjoy it.Hospital should be nonprofitIm calling today regarding the Hospital Corporation of America. The people of Citrus County should beware that these people are for-profit. All hospitals should be designated nonprofit zones. That would help curb the costs. ... Let consultants take overI get a kick out of all our commissioners and now in the paper Brad Thorpe wants to hire a consultant for this road and MSBU and more employees. Hey, how about this: Lets hire all the consultants and get rid of the other people because, apparently, they dont know what to do, but the consultants do. That would save us a lot of money, dont you think?Signs everywhere in Pine RidgeWhat is all this campaigning for board members on Pine Ridge? It looks very silly, looks stupid, all the signs everywhere. And they complain about other people putting signs up. ... Loved Freds bookI just finished reading a book by Fred Brannen. The title of the book was At the Bottom of Biscayne Bay. I would just like to put in a good word. It was very good reading. Enjoyed the book very much. Would recommend it to anyone.Need something for the ladiesGood news about the Rural King coming to the mall, but what about the ladies? Cant the mall possibly get a Michaels or a Jo-Anns so we dont have to travel so far to get thread, wool, material? Since Rural King is coming and thats a nice place for the men, wouldnt it be nice to have a Jo-Anns or a Michaels for the ladies to visit while the men are looking at lawn equipment and garden equipment and tools? Please, thats all we ask a Jo-Anns or a Michaels.Dont blame the red lightIn regard to the article you published the other day about the gentleman who wrecked the motorcycle and hes blaming the red-light cameras on the problem: As someone whose been riding bikes for 50 years, I would say that if he allowed himself enough room to stop, regardless what happened in front of him, he would have been able to stop, especially on a motorcycle and especially at an intersection. Its not the lights fault, the cameras fault or the guy in front of him. If hed allowed enough room, he could have stopped safely. Whats all the fuss?I just wonder how the people in Sugarmill Woods and Southern Woods can make such a stink over somebody wanting to build more homes there when they once destroyed a beautiful piece of property that is now called Sugarmill Woods. It was a very quiet, beautiful place for wildlife and all, and they had no qualms about destroying that piece of property. However, now that somebody else wants to build a couple (of) homes there, theyre having a cow. Could somebody please explain this?How about speed bumps?I have just read another article on the Floral City traffic problem. The only two very extreme positions being discussed are a bypass or widening the road, resulting in the removal of historic buildings. Has anyone considered speed bumps on all four roads leading into the intersection? Or is that just too simple a solution for all the great minds pondering this problem?OPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, APRIL14, 2014 A9 HOMOSASSA LIONS BINGO Monday Nights HOMOSASSA LIONS CLUB HOUSE Rt. 490 628-2461 Free Coffee & Tea Smoke Free Bldg. $ 10 Package Stinger up to $5,000 $50 Payout Per Game 1st Monday Every Month at 6pm $20 Pkg.

OPINION Page A10MONDAY, APRIL 14, 2014 HCA owns poorperforming hospitalIn a recent analysis of Medicare data, Consumer Reports found that St. Petersburg General is one of the most unsafe hospitals in the nation for seniors, and scored it very poorly for surgical deaths, excessive radiation exposure, and bloodstream infections that health officials say can largely be prevented. St. Petersburg General scored 25 of a possible 100 points, ranking it 10th worst from the bottom of the 2,500 hospitals surveyed. This hospital is owned and operated by the for-profit chain Hospital Corporation of America (HCA). Now, why is this of interest to the citizens of Citrus County? Why, because our hospital, Citrus Memorial, will soon be turned over and operated by the very same Hospital Corporation of America, who will run it for the next 50 years per the recently negotiated lease between HCA and our representatives. I will spare you of my personal evaluation of both this agreement and HCA in general, but I do believe that our hospital board, our hospital foundation, and our elected board of county commissioners do owe us Citrus County citizens their assessments of how this information bears upon the honest and realistic expectations for quality hospital care in Citrus County for the next 50 years. Will their voices be heard?Rolf Norbom Crystal River Some conservative political groups have run into trouble making ads that criticize Obamacare. The ads were intended to showcase horror stories from the Democrats national health care overhaul, but instead attracted zealous fact-checking and ferocious pushback from media outlets and liberal activists. The most striking example is a recent ad from Americans for Prosperity, the organization backed by Charles and David Koch, the conservative businessmen-philanthropists who have emerged as this years Target No. 1 for Democrats. The ad featured a Michigan woman, Julie Boonstra, who said she had been diagnosed with leukemia and given a 20 percent chance of surviving, but had fortunately found a wonderful doctor and a great health care plan. At least, before Obamacare. I was doing fairly well fighting the cancer, Boonstra said in the ad, fighting the leukemia, and then I received the letter. My insurance was canceled because of Obamacare. Now, the out-of-pocket costs are so high, its unaffordable. If I do not receive my medication, I will die. I believed the president. I believed I could keep my health insurance plan. I feel lied to. Its heartbreaking for me. The ad ended with Boonstra accusing Michigan Democratic Rep. Gary Peters of jeopardizing her health by voting for the Affordable Care Act. After the commercial aired, fact-checkers noted that under a new policy available to her through Obamacare, Boonstra would actually have lower premiums. Even with higher deductibles, it all pretty much evened out, or even saved Boonstra some money in the end. Boonstra countered that outof-pocket costs her original complaint can be incurred quite quickly if she were to need a lot of care, imposing at least a temporary burden she didnt have before Obamacare. And in any event, one cannot expect a patient fighting a terrifying disease to be happy about being thrown into a new system that upends the care structure she has built. On the other hand, Boonstra and Americans for Prosperity left themselves open to scrutiny of her specific claims. And of course, the coalition of activists and media fact-checkers will go after other anti-Obamacare ads in the future, especially any funded by the Kochs. So here is a suggestion, free of charge, for Americans for Prosperity: Make a few antiObamacare ads with factual claims taken entirely from the pages of The New York Times. The Kochs could start with a recent op-ed by a man named Eric Wee, who just happens to be a former Washington Postreporter. Wee supported Obamacare when it was passed, he explained, but said: What I didnt count on was that it would make things harder for me and my wife. First, the couples $263-amonth coverage was canceled because it didnt conform to Obamacare requirements. When Wee went shopping on the California exchange, he found the cheapest replacement would be about $620 a month. That included paying for coverage for pediatric vision care, although Wee and his wife do not have children. And since the couple makes more than the $62,040 household limit for adjusted gross income, there will be no Obamacare subsidies for them. Then Wee needed a new asthma inhaler and a prescription for antibiotics. He tried frantically to find a medical facility that would take our new Covered California Anthem Blue Cross bronze plan. No luck; he was told it would be three weeks before he could see a doctor. He tried to get by with over-the-counter medicine instead. Then Wee and his wife both had to see a physician in January. They thought the doctors were in their new network, but it turned out they werent. Wees visit cost him $303 out-ofpocket; his wifes, $918. Lets not pretend that this new policy is the affordable health care savior that many of us were hoping for, Wee concludes. For us, our new plan is a big financial hit for a product that does not make it any easier to get basic health care. Its a perfect Koch Obamacare ad: Concise, meaningful and vetted by The New York Times. There are others. There was the piece about New York Citys professional and cultural elite who were dismayed to find their coverage canceled. The woman who rued the adverse social effects of daring to complain about Obamacare. Other individuals facing higher costs and narrower choices. And more. In making ads, some conservatives have tried to swing for the fences, searching for cases of spectacular suffering to illustrate Obamacares damage. But what about focusing on the heavy, if ordinary, burdens the new system is placing on people like Eric Wee and millions of other Americans? Of course, there will still be pushback from the Left. Critics and fact-checkers will undoubtedly complain that the ads, although accurate, lack context. But who cares? The material is there for the Kochs to use right in the pages of The New York Times.Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner.

She would unpack her own car, set up her paintings and spend the day interacting with art lovers. Berger was 96 when she passed away last weekend. The longtime Inglis resident was an artist, an author, a politician, an environmentalist and an activist. She was also as opinionated as the day was long. She served on the city council in Inglis and forged a successful campaign against the construction of a new hydro-electric plant on the Withlacoochee River. For decades, she was a columnist for the Chronicleand often wrote about the early history of her beloved Inglis/Yankeetown area of south Levy County. She wrote books, painted many landscapes of her town and got involved in all sorts of political fights. She was always trying to protect the environment, slow down development and protect the culture of the area. If Betty Berger proved one thing in her long life, it is that one person can make a difference. She fought the power company and won. She wrote books and then sold them. She created beautiful paintings and shared her talents with the community. Independent yet loyal. Courageous yet caring. Short in stature, tall in accomplishments. Betty Berger left an artists mark on Citrus and Levy counties. We are better off for the experience. THE ISSUE:Betty Berger.OUR OPINION:One person does make a difference.

Thats my opinion.Need a non-law lawHey, do you suppose we can get the Inverness City Council to make it legal now to go through stop signs and speed through the city like they made other illegal things legal now like the sidewalk cafes?

Do not rent out Meadowcrest space As a taxpayer of Citrus County, I would like to speak out against the purchase or spending for appraisal of the Meadowcrest building. It appears that the building is at the end of its mechanical and structural lifespan. I think that Dennis Damato is overstating his expertise. Large commercial buildings require a lot of attention. It would require hiring an outside management firm or hiring and training new county employees. Another problem is the empty space. We all know that an empty closet soon fills up. I think the BOCC will find ways to fill the empty space at taxpayer expense. That could be the answer to J.J. Kenneys dog pound. Rebecca Bays stated that she felt it would be wise to continue the lease because in (the) future we could need less space as more county transactions are handled electronically. I feel if we are to be in business, it should be in the road repair business, because a lot are impassable. The county could at least fill and grade access roads to provide access for fire and police. Plus, a lot of subdivisions are way behind in repair. It is much easier to patch than replace roadways. In closing, as a taxpayer, I feel we should not be in the rental business.Jerry Kroskie HomosassaCommissioners out of touch with citizensAt the March25 BOCC meeting, Commissioner (Dennis) Damato appeared to be agitated when the Citrus Council president produced a laundry list of all the issues associated with the purchase of the Meadowcrest building. Many of the attendees already knew there were costly issues involved that would need to be addressed at some point in time. Just for clarification purposes, Commissioner Damato is the one-man SWAT team pushing for the purchase of this building. And of course, he has plenty to say in defense of this purchase when anyone has the audacity to criticize the deal. The only commissioners who will not rubber stamp this purchase are Commissioners (Scott) Adams and (Rebecca) Bays. This purchase is a done deal. I will be very surprised otherwise. So, do not believe for a moment the horse and pony show. This was evidenced by Commissioner Damatos statement below when he rudely responded to the council president: Dont come up here and throw everyone under the bus.We are going to prove to you people that this is a very, very good expenditure of public fund(s). (Emphasis added.) This biased statement says it all. They will make no further effort to come up with an alternative solution. The BOCC is not vacillating; there are no other alternatives they will consider, and they are probably not going to negotiate the price too much, either. This deal will be consummated as planned regardless of what anyone says. Their efforts now will be to concentrate on seeking further evidence that will support this purchase. Period. End of story. Commissioner Damato challenged Commissioner Adams to present an architectural rendering of a new building for less money. If Commissioner Adams delivers, it will be interesting to see how this gets shot down, because it will. What I find incongruous is that Commissioner Damato really thinks it is the responsibility of any citizen who criticizes his plan to produce an alternative plan. News flash: He can expect or demand this of the other sitting commissioners and/or the county administrator, but not of the citizens. This is what (commissioners) get paid to do. This is their job and not ours. If Commissioner Damato wants to delegate his job responsibilities, then it is time for him to step down. Our commissioners appear to have no concern for the state of the economy, here or anywhere else nor do they show any responsibility for protecting taxpayers from overburdening taxation. The world is living in the worst financial crisis since the 1930s Great Depression, and there is no financial relief in site anywhere, for anyone. The politically driven financial settlement with Duke Energy will not solve our problems now nor in the future. If we dont cut spending and borrowing immediately, we will be slammed with a tsunami of the yet-to-materialize hardships that are shadowing the state of the economy. If our commissioners continue to ignore economic indicators and continue to lead us down this slippery road of tax and spend, then prepare to pay plenty for their tunnel vision and their stubborn concentration of single ideas. Our commissioners need to get out of the time-warp zone of plenty-and-abundance they appear to be stuck in and focus the lens of time to the land of whats-happening-now. This is not the time for speculation, risk-taking, spending nor borrowing.Edna Mattos HernandoTea Party principles make senseTea Party members (Rep. Rich Nugent included) are getting a bad rap. In 2009, we rebelled against Republicans who, despite holding majorities in both Houses under Bush 43, sidestepped a bevy of much-needed reforms thereby conceding health care to Democrats. We rebelled against Democrats who, convinced that their convictions carried the force of law, defied the popular will and imposed upon a protesting public a health care system that the majority of whom neither needed nor wanted. His concern about the significant and permanent changes Obamacare would make in our system of government prompted Nugent to risk his career and join with like-minded Republicans in an all-out assault on the law. The battle was, of course, lost. The American public, cowed by a compromised media, failed to back their defenders and sought refuge from the bunch that had just dragooned their right of free choice. Mainline Republicans, (leftovers from the duck-andrun-again days), instead of convincing voters to hang tough, abandoned once sacrosanct principles of democratic pluralism and surrendered their power of the purse to a president who was contemptuously refusing to meet with them. And Nugent et al. are called radicals and right wing extremists. Go figure. John McFadden InvernessA Humanist view of religion At a young age I stopped believing in Santa Claus, Easter bunny and the tooth fairy. But, I was still too young to equate those myths with the big myth that was taught to me during my weekly attendance at the only Protestant church in my town. I assumed if adults were going to church on a regular basis, then there must be credence to their beliefs in the Bible and the clergy. I clung to Christian mythology until I was an adult. Even today, I am still amazed that 45 percent of Americas population believes in creationism. An unproven myth that God created the world as we know it. The big myth begins in the first book of Genesis, the creation story. God realized Eve had eaten the forbidden fruit and urged Adam to take a bite. Because of Gods anger, he condemns the whole human race yet to be born for the sins of Adam and Eve. The Apostle Paul says in Romans 5:12: Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned. The reason that we are all sinners is that we inherit the Original Sin of Adam. Condemning a newborn for something for which they are unaware sounds problematic to me. The spell of original sin is finally broken in the New Testament when Jesus is crucified, dying for our sins. 1 John 2:2: He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. In other words, Jesus died to atone for the sins committed by Adam and Eve. Only Jesus death could atone for Original Sin. Another big myth is the story of Noah and his ark. The vision of thousands of animals boarding the ark always puzzled me. Think about it; can you imagine the size of the crew needed just to shovel the manure overboard and the amount of grain and hay needed to feed the herbivores? Where did fresh meat come from to feed the carnivores? The dimensions of the ark are stated in the Bible. Using these dimensions, there is no way two (male and female) of each species could find space on the ark. Copernicus, Galileo and Darwin are scientists who provided new understanding about how the universe works. Their findings began to help people move on from the thinking recorded in the Bible and opened the eyes and minds of forwardthinkers. However, today many struggle to convince themselves, against all proof that they should adopt the world view of people of many millennia ago; that we must put our lives in Gods hands and that He will intervene to help us in our time of need. We are told by the church that God loves us. That we must pray to Him daily. If our prayers are reasonable God will answer us. During the 20th century, the world witnessed the worst slaughter of humans than any other time in history. Millions and millions died. Presumably, many of these victims prayed for God to deliver them from the atrocities committed by Hitler, Stalin, Idi Amin, Pol Pot, Mao Zedong and Kim Il-Sung. Where was God during the 20th century? Ive posed this question to many believers. Most answer, God works in mysterious ways. In other words, Gods inconsistencies in keeping His promises to the faithful are excused by resorting to our inability to understand God. This response is just a copout for avoiding the question.L.M.

Festival Associated PressAna Morales laughs as she tries on a pink hat Saturday during The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival in The Woodlands, Texas. Sebelius: Laws launch flawedWASHINGTON The Obama administrations timeline for having ready the new health care laws online sign-up system was just flat out wrong, outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said in an interview that aired Sunday. The departing health chief also said the two months when healthcare. gov was plagued with technical problems were a pretty dismal time and the low point of her five-year tenure. But she defended the laws impact and said millions of Americans now have access to health care because of it. People have competitive choices and real information for the first time ever in this insurance market, said Sebelius, who last week announced her resignation. But she acknowledged the rocky rollout for the online sign-up system fraught with technical problems that left Americans frustrated. Clearly, the estimate that it was ready to go Oct. 1 was just flat out wrong, Sebelius said. Sebelius resignation comes just a week after sign-ups for insurance coverage ended, enrolling 7.1 million people and exceeding initial expectations. Enrollment has since increased to 7.5 million as people were given time to complete applications. 7 dead babies found in Utah Police accused a Utah woman of killing seven babies she gave birth to over 10 years after they found the tiny bodies stuffed in cardboard boxes in the garage of her former home. Megan Huntsman lived in the Pleasant Grove home until three years ago and was arrested Sunday. Police said the 39-year-old birthed the infants from 1996 to 2006. Police Capt. Michael Roberts said officers responded to a call Saturday from Huntsmans estranged husband about a dead infant at the home about 35 miles south of Salt Lake City.

More than 10,000 people were evacuated, including more than 200 female inmates at a prison. And with hot, dry winds stoking the embers, the fires were still burning out of control as a second night approached. The blaze began Saturday afternoon in a forested area above ramshackle housing on one of the citys 42 hilltops, and spread quickly as hot ash rained down over wooden houses and narrow streets. Electricity failed as the fire grew, with towering, sparking flames turning the night sky orange over a darkening, destroyed horizon. Eventually, neighborhoods on six hilltops were reduced to ashes.Jamaica sees big drop in lionfish KINGSTON, Jamaica Jamaica is reporting a big decline in sightings of lionfish, the voracious invasive species that has been wreaking havoc on regional reefs for years and wolfing down native juvenile fish and crustaceans. Some four years after a national campaign got started to slash numbers of the candy-striped predator with a mane of venomous spines, Jamaicas National Environment and Planning Agency is reporting a 66percent drop in sightings of lionfish in coastal waters with depths of 75 feet. Dayne Buddo, a Jamaican marine ecologist who focuses on marine invaders at the Caribbean islands University of the West Indies, attributes much of the local decrease in sightings to a growing appetite for their fillets. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressSLOVYANSK, Ukraine Ukraine is deploying troops in a large-scale anti-terrorist operation to resist attacks by armed pro-Russian forces, Ukraines President Oleksandr Turchynov said on Sunday in a televised address. The previous president, who fled to Russia after being ousted earlier this year, accused the CIA of being behind the decision. Turchynov said the Ukrainian Security Council decided to use the army because were not going to allow Russia to repeat the Crimean scenario in Ukraines east. He pledged amnesty to anyone who lays down arms by Monday morning. Speaking hours later on Russian state television, Viktor Yanukovych claimed that CIA director John Brennan had met with Ukraines new leadership and in fact sanctioned the use of weapons and provoked bloodshed. The CIA flatly denied the accusation that Brennan was pulling the strings in Ukraine. CIA spokesman Dean Boyd said that while the agency doesnt comment on Brennans travel itinerary, the claim that director Brennan encouraged Ukrainian authorities to conduct tactical operations inside Ukraine is completely false. Yanukovych was ousted in February following months of protests in Kiev, the capital, that were ignited by his decision to back away from closer relations with the European Union and turn toward Russia. He fled to Russia, saying he feared for his life. Ukraine now has one foot into a civil war, Yanukovych said Sunday. He was flanked by his former prosecutor general and interior minister, the two associates most despised by the Kiev protesters. Ukrainian special forces exchanged gunfire with a proRussia militia outside an eastern city on Sunday morning, with one security officer killed and five others wounded. It was the first reported gunbattle in eastern Ukraine, where armed proRussian men have seized a number of government buildings in recent days. Interior Minister Arsen Avakov has described such attacks as Russian aggression. He said in a Facebook post Sunday that special forces of up to 12,000 people will be drawn from volunteers who will be tasked with resisting attacks from pro-Russian forces in their local areas. Russias Foreign Ministry was quick to dismiss Turchynovs decree as criminal and accused Ukrainian officials of using radical neo-Nazi forces. Russia has tens of thousands of troops deployed along its border with Ukraine, which has raised fears of a military incursion, especially after the takeover of the Crimean Peninsula. The Russian government has denied any plans to intervene militarily in eastern Ukraine. 3 dead in Kansas Associated PressOVERLAND PARK, Kan. A man opened fire outside a Jewish community center on Sunday, killing two people before driving over to a retirement community a few blocks away and killing someone else, authorities said. Police arrested the suspect in the parking lot of a nearby elementary school shortly after the shootings, which happened minutes apart at around 1 p.m. in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park. Authorities declined to release the names of the suspect or the victims, pending the notification of their relatives. At a news conference, Overland Park police Chief John Douglass said the suspect is in his 70s, is not from Kansas and wasnt known to area law enforcement before the attacks. He also said there is no indication that the suspect knew any of the victims. Today is a sad and very tragic day, Douglass said. As you might imagine we are only three hours into this investigation. Theres a lot of innuendo and a lot of assertions going around. There is really very little hardcore information. Douglass said the suspect made several statements to police, but its too early to tell you what he may or may not have said. He also said it was too early in the investigation to determine whether there was an anti-Semitic motive for the attacks or if they will be investigated as hate crimes. The Jewish festival of Passover begins today. We are investigating it as a hate crime. Were investigating it as a criminal act. We havent ruled out anything. ... Again, were three hours into it, he said. Douglass said the first attack happened in a parking lot behind the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City. The attacker shot two males. One died at the scene and the other died at a hospital. He said the suspect then drove to the nearby retirement community, Village Shalom, where he shot and killed a female. The gunman also shot at two other people during the attacks, but missed them, Douglass said. Douglass said a shotgun was used in the attacks, and that investigators are also trying to determine if a handgun and assaultstyle rifle may also have been used. The suspect was taken to the Johnson County Detention Center. Johnson County District Attorney Stephen Howe, who attended the news conference along with Barry Grissom, U.S. Attorney for Kansas, said it was too soon to know when the suspect would appear in court. Window opens on secret camp within Guantanamo Associated PressGUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba Attorney James Connell has visited his client inside the secret Guantanamo prison complex known as Camp 7 only once, taken in a van with covered windows on a circuitous trek to disguise the route on the scrub brush-and-cactus covered military base. Connell is allowed to say virtually nothing about what he saw in the secret camp where the most notorious terror suspects in U.S. custody are held except that it is unlike any detention facility hes encountered. Its much more isolating than any other facility that I have known, the lawyer said. Ive done cases from the Virginia death row and Texas death row and these pretrial conditions are much more isolating. The Camp 7 prison unit is so shrouded in secrecy that its location on the U.S. base in Cuba is classified and officials refuse to discuss it. Now, two separate but related events are forcing it into the limelight. In Washington, the Senate Intelligence Committee voted April3 to declassify a portion of a review of the U.S. detention and interrogation program in the aftermath of the Sept.11, 2001, al-Qaida attack. The report, the release of which is opposed by the CIA, is expected to be sharply critical of the treatment of prisoners, including some now held in Camp 7. And on Monday, a judge in Guantanamo will open a hearing into the sanity of one of those prisoners, Ramzi Binalshibh, whose courtroom outbursts about alleged mistreatment in Camp 7 have halted the already boggeddown effort to try five men in the Sept.11 attacks, all of whom are held there. Both issues are deeply intertwined. Binalshibh has accused the government of making noises and vibrations inside Camp 7 to deliberately keep him awake, reminiscent of the intentional sleep deprivation, along with other forms of abuse, that his lawyers claim he endured at the hands of the CIA from the time he was captured in Pakistan in September 2002 to when he was brought to Guantanamo four years later. Military officials deny doing anything intentional to disrupt his sleep. Prosecutors say his accusations are delusions, though they still believe he is mentally competent to stand trial. His lawyers say he is competent, but are not convinced officials have adequately investigated his complaints.

The Reds best offensive showing of the season featured Mesoracos three-run homer, Joey Vottos two-run shot and Heiseys pinch-hit slam in the eighth. Jay Bruce doubled, walked four times and scored four runs. Zack Cozart got it going with a bases-loaded double off Cesar Ramos (0-1), making his first start of the season because of injuries. The Reds salvaged the final game of their interleague series but remained in last place in the NL Central at 4-8. The hitters have been the biggest problem, tied for last in the majors heading into the game. The Reds had season highs in runs they hadnt scored more than six in any previous game and hits with 13. Left-hander Tony Cingrani (1-1) gave up five hits in 6 1/3 innings. Ben Zobrist homered from both sides of the plate, hitting two-run shots off Cingrani and right-hander Nick Christiani. The Rays are 3-3 on a trip that has been tough on their rotation. Matt Moore went on the disabled list with a sore elbow on Tuesday, and Alex Cobb joined him Sunday with a strained oblique. Also, reliever Joel Peralta was sick, leaving him unavailable. The injuries affected the final game of the series. Ramos, who had made four relief Monopoli claims fifth FPT series win DQs shake up Saturdays CCS race standingsSEANARNOLD CorrespondentINVERNESS Becca Monopoli landed her fifth overall win of the year and fourth in a row in the Joey Coulter Florida Pro Trucks series, while tech disqualifications shook up a couple of top-three feature finishes in Saturdays racing action at the Citrus County Speedway. After starting in the second row and holding second for most of the first half of the 50-lapper, Monopoli, whose No. 59x was bunched in with four others near the front, catapulted past Brent Hubar, of Venice, to get the lead for good around lap 26. Fellow Lakeland driver Cody McDuffie, who was the top qualifier and rode side-by-side with Monopoli on lap 25, stayed in Monopolis shadow for the remainder in finishing second, but was later disqualified, leaving second place to Grovelands Jessica Murphy. Murphy battled with Alvas Chad Chastain for fourth for much of the race, until the pair got by Hubar, the races early leader, on laps 30 and 31. Murphy took to the inside of Chastain on the front stretch of lap 40 and pulled into third on the ensuing lap. Chastain, who won the series opener on March 15 at Bradentons Desoto Speedway, placed third due to McDuffies DQ. The race went without a single caution. I tried to be patient in the beginning, but it was real hard, said Monopoli, who won at Citrus on Feb. 1. I knew I had a great car behind me (in McDuffie). Once I got past him I was looking in my mirror the whole time. Codys an awesome driver, so I was waiting for him to catch me. Im so happy I won. In the nights 50-lap Pure Stocks special, Ocalas Jonathan Appleby aptly transitioned from his usual dirt racing to dust the field. His No. 69 failed tech inspection, however, leaving Larry Welter Sr., who owned the second position from lap 20, with the trophy and his second feature win this year at Citrus. Lecantos Happy Florian came in behind Welter at third, but was also disqualified. The tech fallout moved Bushnells Mike Gilkerson and Inverness Chucky Smith to second and third, respectively. Gilkerson took advantage of a restart on lap 46 to bolt past Smith on 48. My temperature gauge was spent after that last caution, Welter said, so I didnt even know if I was going to finish. Front-runners Jay Witfoth and Billy Smith tangled up on lap 18 of the Sportsman feature, allowing Orlandos Andy Nicholls, who overcame a mechanical issue that shut him down for the heat, to slide into the lead on the restart and claim his first win at Citrus this season.

Bubba Watsons second Masters title was nothing like the green jacket he won two years ago. The only daring shot Watson hit was one he really didnt need. The wild swing in momentum came on the front nine, not the back nine of Augusta National. And the sweetest difference of all Sunday was seeing his 2-year-old son walk toward him on the edge of the 18th green after his three-shot victory over Jordan Spieth. Watson turned in another masterpiece and joined an exclusive group as the 17th player to win the Masters more than once. He turned a two-shot deficit into a twoshot lead on the final two holes of the front nine, then kept Spieth, 20, and everyone else at a safe distance the rest of the way. Watson closed with a 3-under 69 to beat a pair of Masters rookies in Spieth and Jonas Blixt of Sweden. Two years ago, when he hit that wild hook out of the trees on the 10th hole to win in a playoff, his wife and newly adopted son were watching at home in Florida. This time, young Caleb was decked out in a green-and-white striped Masters shirt and green tennis shoes as he waddled over to his father. This ones a lot different, Watson said. The first one, for me, it was almost like I lucked into it. After high-fiving the crowd on his way to sign his card, Watson returned to Butler Cabin to take back that green jacket he slipped on Adam Scott a year ago. After giving it away last year, I wanted it back, Watson said. I told Adam we could just swap it back and forth every year.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE holing out for birdie from the front bunker on No. 4, and making back-toback birdies to build a two-shot lead through seven holes. Bidding to become the first player in 35 years to win a green jacket in his first try, Spieth looked to be well on his way. But he three-putted for bogey on No. 8 the first 6 on his card all week as Watson got up-and-down for birdie to tie for the lead. Spieth then made a rookie mistake, leaving his approach below the flagstick on No. 9 and watching it roll back into the fairway, setting up another bogey and two-shot swing. Whatever prayer he had might have ended at Amen Corner. His tee shot on No. 12 found Raes Creek. He missed a short birdie attempt on the 13th. Watson was too powerful, too experienced, too tough to beat. Spieth closed with six pars for a 72 and tied for second with Blixt, who never went away but never really threatened. Blixt shot a 71. That was fun, but at the same time, it hurts right now, Spieth said. I wanted to get in contention on the back nine Sunday, but didnt come out on top. Watson finished at 8-under 280 and goes to a career-best No. 4 in the world. Miguel Angel Jimenez, the 50-year-old wonder from Spain, shot 71 and finished alone in fourth. Matt Kuchar lost a share of the lead with a four-putt double bogey on the fourth hole and never challenged again. He closed with a 74 and tied for fifth with Rickie Fowler (73). This was nine holes of theater everyone expected out of Sunday at Augusta National except it was the front nine. Nine players were separated by three shots at the start of the final round only for this to turn into a two-man show. After trading pars on the opening hole, either Watson or Spieth sometimes both made birdie or bogey over the next nine holes. They matched birdies on the par-3 fourth hole when Spieth holed out from the front bunker and Watson hit his tee shot into 4 feet. Spieth led by as many as two shots for most of the front nine, and his spectacular overshadowed a steady hand from Watson. Two holes to close out the back nine changed everything. Amen Corner swung the Masters in Watsons favor for good. About the only excitement came on the par-5 15th hole, when Watson had a three-shot lead. He hit his tee shot well left, blocked by a few pine trees. Instead of laying up safely in front of the water, he hit through the trees with a shot that just cleared the false front of the green and went just over the back. All he got was a par. Over the final hour, thats all he really needed. It was his second win this year, and the victory puts Watson at the top of the Ryder Cup standings. He was guided all week by a simple game plan of hitting fairways and greens, and he was calmed by knowing that regardless of how it turned out, he still had a green jacket. Now he has two of them.MastersSunday, At Augusta National Golf Club, Augusta, Ga.

Tim Scalise, of Lutz, and Eric Sharrone, of Floral City, dominated for wins in the nights other pair of feature events. Scalise took the front in Mini Stocks by lap three, and he and Bill Ryan were separated from the field by six. In his first race at Citrus in 2014, reigning points champion Kevin Stone trailed the pair in third until a minor crash on seven derailed his chances. Ryan ended up second, one ahead of Weirsdales Jerry Daniels. I just held my line and concentrated on what I needed to do, Scalise said. I knew the 33 (Ryan) was the hardcharger, and I just did my best to hold him off. In Pro Figure-eights, Sharrone bided his time behind fellow Floral City driver Thomas Peet, before making an outside move on the first turn of lap 16 and then pulling away from the field. Peet finished second, followed by Pinellas Parks Charlie Meyer. I finally had to go, Sharrone said of his late burst. We finally got this (32) car figured out.

Cincinnati came into the game tied with San Diego for fewest runs in the majors with 28. Ramos walked the bases loaded in the second, and Cozart hit a groundrule double for his third hit of the season and a 2-0 lead. Vottos second homer of the series sparked a 10-batter, five-run third inning. Ramos left after throwing 45 pitches. Brandon Gomes relieved and gave up Mesoracos homer. Mesoraco added a sacrifice fly in the fifth. The catcher opened the season on the disabled list with a strained oblique. In four games the past week, he went 7 for 14 with three doubles, two homers and six RBIs. Heisey connected in the eighth off Josh Lueke for his seventh career pinch-hit homer.

B4MONDAY, APRIL14, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Pacers hold off Thunders late run 102-97 Indiana closes in on top seed in the East Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS David West scored 21 points and Lance Stephenson had his league-best fifth tripledouble of the season, leading Indiana past Oklahoma City 102-97 Sunday putting the Pacers one win away from clinching the Eastern Conferences top seed. The Pacers (55-26) lead two-time defending champion Miami by a half game with one to play and hold the tiebreaker based on conference record. Kevin Durant finished with 38 points for Oklahoma City (58-22) on a day it could have locked up the second seed in the West. Oklahoma City rallied from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit, tying the score at 89 with 2:46 to go. But Paul George hit a 3 and Stephenson made one with 34.2 seconds to go to make it 97-91.Nets 97, Magic 88NEW YORK Mirza Teletovic scored a team-high 20 points off the bench, Joe Johnson and Mason Plumlee each added 17 and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Orlando Magic 97-88. Deron Williams also had 17 points, five assists and four steals for the Nets, whose victory gave them a two-game lead for the fifth spot in the Eastern Conference playoff race over the idle Washington Wizards. Tobias Harris came off the bench to lead the Magic with 18 points, who have lost their last two games. Trailing 59-55 with 6:59 remaining in the third quarter, Brooklyn went on an 13-0 run, highlighted by five points from Teletovic, to take a 70-59 lead with 3:23 left in the quarter. Ronnie Price then hit a 3-pointer to end Orlandos scoring drought.Raptors 116, Pistons 107AUBURN HILLS, Mich. DeMar DeRozan scored 14 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter, and the Toronto Raptors tied a franchise record for victories with a 116-107 win over the Detroit Pistons. The Raptors (47-33) had already clinched the Atlantic Division, and the victory over Detroit was their 10th in 14 games. Toronto has now reached the 47-win mark for the third time. The Raptors went 47-35 in 2001 and 2007. Kyle Lowry scored 28 points for Toronto before fouling out with 5:51 remaining. Andre Drummond had 14 points and 17 rebounds for the Pistons in the final home game of their dismal season.Knicks 100, Bulls 89NEW YORK Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 20 points and the New York Knicks, a night after being eliminated from playoff contention, beat the Chicago Bulls 100-89. No longer with any hopes of their own, the Knicks snapped the Bulls seven-game winning streak and dropped them back into a tie with Toronto for the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference with two to play. Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith each had 17 points for the Knicks, who were eliminated Saturday when Atlanta beat Miami, ending New Yorks run of three straight postseason berths. A 54-win division champion last season, they believed they were built to play deep into the spring, so confident in what they had that Amare Stoudemire said the expectations should have been even higher. Lightning to host Canadiens in opening round Associated PressWASHINGTON The Tampa Bay Lightning wrapped up home-ice advantage for their first-round playoff series against the Montreal Canadiens by edging the Washington Capitals 1-0 in a shootout Sunday in the regular-season finale. Matthew Carle scored the only goal in the shootout. The victory clinched second place in the Atlantic Division for Tampa Bay, which finished with 101 points, one more than Montreal. Tampa Bay will host Montreal in Game 1 on Wednesday night. The Canadiens were idle Sunday, after closing their regular season with a 1-0 overtime victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday night. Alex Ovechkin finished with an NHL-leading 51 goals, but the Capitals failed to make the playoffs for the first time since 2006-07, his second season in the league.Red Wings 3, Blues 0ST. LOUIS Backup goalie Petr Mrazek kept the injury-riddled St. Louis Blues down heading into the playoffs with his second career shutout in a 3-0 victory for the Detroit Red Wings. The Blues had been in contention for the No. 1 overall seed but lost their last six. Justin Abdelkader scored twice, Riley Sheahan added a goal and Pavel Datsyuk had two assists for the Red Wings, who are locked into the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.Devils 3, Bruins 2NEWARK, N.J. Martin Brodeur made 16 saves in what might have been his last start in a 20-year career with the Devils and New Jersey beat Boston 3-2 as the Bruins rested many of their stars in preparation for the playoffs later this week. The soon-to-be 42-year-old Brodeur is in the final year of his contract and is likely to test the free-agent market now that he has become the backup to Cory Schneider. Defenseman Marek Zidlicky scored twice and Travis Zajac once for the Devils, who have now missed the playoffs two straight seasons after making the Stanley Cup finals in 2012.Hurricanes 6, Flyers 5, SOPHILADELPHIA Jordan Staal scored twice in regulation and had the only goal in the shootout to lead the Carolina Hurricanes to a 6-5 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers in the regular-season finale. Jeff Skinner added a pair of goals for the Hurricanes, who finish the season in seventh place in the Metropolitan Division, outside of the playoff picture. Wayne Simmonds scored twice for the Flyers, who had already wrapped up third place in the Metropolitan Division and a date with the New York Rangers in the first round of the playoffs later this week.Islanders 4, Sabres 3, SOBUFFALO, N.Y. Brock Nelson scored with 3:44 left in regulation to force overtime and then netted the decisive shootout goal to lift the New York Islanders to a 4-3 win over the Buffalo Sabres in a season-ending matchup of non-playoff teams. Anders Lee scored twice for the Islanders (34-37-11), who finished with three straight wins. Anders Nilsson stopped 36 shots through overtime and all three he faced in the shootout. Torrey Mitchell, Jamie McBain and Matt Ellis scored for Buffalo (21-51-10), which had already clinched the NHLs worst record.Senators 3, Penguins 2, SOPITTSBURGH Jason Spezza scored in the shootout to help the Ottawa Senators beat the Pittsburgh Penguins and finish the season on a five-game winning streak. The teams were tied 2-2 after two periods and didnt score in the third or overtime. Spezza, who scored the lone goal in Ottawas win Saturday against Toronto, stopped at the circle during his shootout attempt, stickhandled around goalie Jeff Zatkoff, and scored. Kyle Turris added a goal in the shootout for the Senators. Ottawa goalie Robin Lehner stopped Beau Bennett and Jussi Jokinen to seal the win. Turris scored his 26th goal in regulation, and Mark Stone had his fourth for Ottawa, which will miss the playoffs for the second time in six years and first since 2011.Ducks 3, Avalanche 2, OTANAHEIM, Calif. Nick Bonino scored 1:33 into overtime, and the Anaheim Ducks finished the regular season with a 3-2 victory over the Colorado Avalanche. Devante Smith-Pelly controlled the puck in the slot and passed to Bonino, who wrapped up Anaheims 54th victory with his 22nd goal. With their playoff position secure, the Ducks used the game to honor Teemu Selanne, who plans to retire after the season. The 43-year-old Finnish Flash got standing ovations on every shift in the third period in Anaheim, his home for 15 of his 20 NHL seasons. Selanne was honored as all three postgame stars in a no-stakes meeting of the Western Conferences two division champions. Anaheim clinched the Wests top spot Saturday, while Colorado won the Central earlier Sunday when St. Louis lost.Predators 7, Wild 3ST. PAUL, Minn. Craig Smith had two goals and two assists for Nashville, and the Predators finished the season strong with a 7-3 win over the playoffbound Minnesota Wild. The Wild wrapped up the first wild card spot in the Western Conference earlier in the week and already had their first-round matchup with the Colorado Avalanche set before the game, so there were few motivators other than the maintenance of health and momentum and maybe a statistical milestone or two. Goalie Ilya Bryzgalov, though, didnt do himself or the Wild any good with this shaky performance, as meaningless as the game was against a Predators team that missed the playoffs for a second straight year. Nashville went 9-1-2 in its final 12 games, including eight regulation wins, but finished in 10th place. Associated PressTampa Bay right wing Nikita Kucherov, front, skates with the puck Sunday as Washington right wing Troy Brouwer defends in Washington. The Lightning won 1-0 to clinch home ice in the first round of the playoffs. SPORTS BRIEFSLightning coach: Malones charges not distractionWASHINGTON Tampa Bay Lightning coach Jon Cooper does not think left wing Ryan Malones DUI and cocaine possession charges will be a distraction to the playoffsbound team. Cooper said Sunday that the Lightning are really looking forward to getting back Malone at some point. Malone did not travel with the team for its regular-season finale at the Washington Capitals on Sunday. An officer saw Malones SUV strike a curb after making a left turn from the center lane early Saturday, Tampa Police Lt. Paul Lusczynski said. After being pulled over, Malone got out of his vehicle, and the officer smelled alcohol on his breath, Lusczynski said. According to the police report, the officer found 1.3 grams of cocaine in one of Malones pockets. Cooper said Malone made a poor decision.Mike Conway wins wild IndyCar race at Long BeachLONG BEACH, Calif. Mike Conway has won the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, grabbing the lead when Scott Dixon was forced to stop for fuel two laps from the finish. Conway was the surprise winner of a race that took a dramatic turn when leader Ryan Hunter-Reay triggered a seven-car accident 24 laps from the finish. Hunter-Reay had dominated but was chasing Josef Newgarden after Newgarden exited pit road ahead of HunterReay and James Hinchcliffe. Hunter-Reay tried to make an aggressive pass in the fourth turn and instead hit Newgarden. The accident wiped out Hunter-Reay, Hinchcliffe and Newgarden, damaged Helio Castroneves car, then collected Takuma Sato, Tony Kanaan and Jack Hawksworth. It opened the door for Dixon to win, but he conceded to Conway when he had to stop for fuel.49ers linebacker Aldon Smith arrested at Los Angeles airportLOS ANGELES San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith has been arrested at Los Angeles International Airport after authorities said he became belligerent during a security screening and threatened that he had a bomb. LAPD Sgt. Michael Fox said Smith was booked Sunday afternoon. Airport police Sgt. Karla Ortiz said the 24-year-old player was randomly selected for a secondary screening at Terminal 1. Ortiz said Smith became uncooperative with the process and told a TSA agent that he had a bomb before walking to the gate. When airport police officers caught up with him, Ortiz said Smith became uncooperative and was taken into custody. With the arrest, Smith is involved in three pending criminal cases.Robert Hight wins NHRA Four-Wide NationalsCONCORD, N.C.

Antron Brown won the Top Fuel division, Jimmy Alund topped the Pro Stock field to become the first European winner in the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, and Andrew Hines won in Pro Stock Motorcycle in the event that features racing in four lanes instead of the traditional two. Hight, also the 2012 Four-Wide winner and the Charlotte winner last fall, had a winning pass of 4.074 seconds at 311.34 mph in his John Force Racing Ford Mustang. Verdasco wins US Mens Clay CourtHOUSTON Fernando Verdasco won the U.S. Mens Clay Court Championship on Sunday for his sixth ATP World Tour title and first since 2010, beating Spanish countryman Nicolas Almagro 6-3, 7-6 (4). The 30-year-old Verdasco ended a six-match losing streak in tournament finals. He also reached the doubles final and had been on the court six hours longer than Almagro going into the final. Almagro had a walkover in the semifinals when Sam Querrey pulled out because of back injury. The third-seeded Almagro reached set point five times against Verdascos serve in the ninth game of second set, but couldnt convert. He was also up a mini-break in the tiebreaker before Verdasco rallied.From wire reports Associated PressIndiana guard Lance Stephenson, right, defends Sunday against Oklahoma City forward Kevin Durant in Indianapolis. The Pacers defeated the Thunder 102-97.
MONDAY, APRIL14, 2014 B5CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Percival, one of King Arthurs Knights of the Round Table, supposedly said, One hour of thoughtful solitude may nerve the heart for days of conflict girding up its armor to meet the most insidious foe. Many play far too quickly at the bridge table. True, taking one hour would be considered excessive. But a minute or so is perfectly acceptable. And if someone complains to you, reply, You have just ruined my train of thought. I will have to start all over again. In this deal, West leads the club ace against four spades. How should he plan the defense? Norths auction showed four spades and game-going values. So South, who also had four spades, corrected from three no-trump to four spades. Many would cash the club king at trick two, then look around for the next step. But that would be too late. West needs to realize that his partner has only one heart. (South showed four, dummy has three and West holds five.) West must also hope that his partner has a speedy trump entry. At trick two, West shifts to a heart. Declarer wins on the board and plays a trump, but East wins with his ace and returns a club. West takes the trick with his carefully conserved entry, the king, and gives his partner the lethal heart ruff. Finally, note that if North had raised one notrump to three no-trump, West probably would have led the heart nine, top of nothing. Then, when East got in with his spade ace, he would have had to find a club shift to defeat the contract. Pause to think you will defend and play better.

He worked for his father for one year, worked on a marijuana farm for one year and has been living off of his savings for the past eight months. He hasnt been looking for a job. He says he doesnt want to work for someone else. Now he says he wants to move back to our town and live half of the year with me and half with my ex-husband, who lives two hours away. He refuses to pay rent. Annie, I dont want him living here, freeloading. The problem is, I know hell come here anyway and stay several nights without officially moving in, because I live near his friends. How do I handle this without having it get really ugly? Hes not the easiest person to deal with. Reluctant Mom Dear Reluctant: It isnt going to get better if you do nothing and find your son on your doorstep. You need to talk to him now, as calmly as possible, and let him know you love him, but you arent willing to subsidize his current lifestyle. If you choose, you could tell him that he can stay if he gets a job and pays a reasonable rent, or any variation that you prefer if you think he will honor it. Offer to help him look for employment and/or an apartment of his own. Try to get your ex-husband on board so you both are helping your son get on a path toward responsibility. But you have to be willing to risk your sons anger if you expect this to work. Dear Annie: Im a high school student in a small town, and Im really scared for my health. My maternal grandmother died of breast cancer, and she left behind three daughters, two of whom have daughters of their own. Theres a high chance that my mother, aunts, cousin or I could have breast cancer, as well. Im scared to the bone of this disease, and Im always nervous that my selfexams arent terribly accurate. Ive talked to my mom about getting a professional exam or even a mammogram (though, to be honest, Id be so much more comfortable with a mastectomy altogether), but I always feel like she avoids the subject. Is there any way I can get an exam without my mother knowing? If not, how can I convince her to get one with me? Worried in Wyoming Dear Worried: While having a close relative who has had breast cancer is a risk factor over ones lifetime, it doesnt necessarily mean that anyone else in your family will get it. A small percentage of the population carries the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene, and if Grandma had this, your mother should speak to her doctor about genetic testing. Otherwise, your risk is no greater than any other girl your age. But we do agree that an exam might put your mind at ease. Ask your mother to make an appointment for you with a gynecologist. If she refuses, you can talk to your pediatrician about this at your next appointment, or contact Planned Parenthood (plannedparenthood.org) for information. Dear Annie: Please tell End of the Line not to despair. There are free or lowcost computer courses offered at places like Goodwill Industries (goodwill.org), which also offers help with resume writing, along with free job placement services. In Florida, we have Workforce Plus, which offers assistance, and Im sure other states have similar services. As a former hiring manager, I often hired people in their 70s. Older workers have excellent work ethics and less absenteeism than younger workers. Plus, their years of business experience proved invaluable. At the age of 51, I decided to return to college and earn a B.A. in accounting, and I continue to take classes. You are never too old to learn. Please tell her not to give up.

After giving my thanks to the chairwomen for the invitation, I admitted that I had prepared the talk for a group of elderly people. After a loud round of derisive comments from the audience for my error I gathered my thoughts, but failed to note I was probably older than most of them. I had been asked to talk about arthritis and some other orthopedic problems. As I organized my thoughts on the subject it all came down to three basic premises and one specifically that was dominant. Exercise! With the basis being motion is lotion. After exercise, the other two basic premises are weight and good health. Remember, a peanut eaten daily for a year over and above the daily calories expended will result in an almost 2 pound weight gain. All aspects of the treatment of orthopedic problems and injuries, as well as most illnesses, are determined by pain. Similarly, the treatment options are modified by a patients weight and health. In our very complex world of health care, where having an insurance card is no assurance of receiving treatment, it is best to remain in the best possible shape. Basic problems of athletic injuries, aging and disease are somewhat similar in that they prevent motion. The basic premise being that motion is lotion. Look at it this way, osteoporosis affects men and women alike and causes fractures of brittle bones, mainly the hip and spine. This leads to the back hunch or bent spine we see in older people. You can take medicine, eat more calcium or hormones such as testosterone/estrogen which can lead to other diseases. The simplest and most costeffective treatment is exercise. Weight-bearing exercise places the needed stress on bones, muscle and ligaments and prevents bone loss and strengthens already weak bones. Bone is a living tissue, which is constantly being absorbed and replaced by new bone. Being sedentary or less active as we age, results in more bone being resorbed than replaced. It is the stress of exercise that stimulates new bone to form a more rapid rate. Same as drugs, but much less expensive and much more fun. The role of exercise is similar many illnesses and disease processes. It seems ironic to say that we have to stay in the best shape we can in order to get the best available treatment. But look at just the technical aspect of surgery. Severely overweight individuals make the technical aspect much harder and limit the usefulness of the equipment. If you participate in a softball, bowling or trap shooting league, have an injury and are not in the best shape, you may miss the opportunity of having the most effective treatment or the best outcome for your sports injury. Athletes recover more quickly, return to their sports and have less complications as a result of being in good health and being in shape. Not necessarily because they are younger. The key in health care today is to be fit and exercise, keep your weight in check and take as few medications as possible. That slight but increasingly noticeable hump on your back when you walk will become less noticeable and you will step with more spring when you have more muscle tone and get in better shape.Ron Joseph, M.D., a hand, shoulder and upper extremity orthopedic surgeon at Seaspine Orthopedic Institute and an Olympic bronze medalist, can be reached at email@example.com Dr. Ron JosephDOCTORS ORDERS Pacquiao beats Bradley by decision in rematch Associated PressLAS VEGAS Nearly two years later, Manny Pacquiao finally got the decision most people thought he deserved the first time against Timothy Bradley. Pacquiao won a unanimous decision in his rematch with Bradley on Saturday night, avenging his 2012 loss and claiming the WBO welterweight title. Pacquiao (56-5-2) pursued and peppered the previously unbeaten Bradley around the MGM Grand Garden ring with an aggressive effort occasionally recalling the Pacman in his prime. Bradley fought back with counterpunching and elusiveness, but Pacquiao kept up his attack while Bradley (31-1) struggled down the stretch. In the same arena where the fighters met for their first bout, Pacquiao left little doubt about the result although thats what he thought last time, too. Bradleys split-decision victory astonished most ringside observers, who felt Pacquiao had earned a clear decision. I knew I had to do more in this fight than I did in the last fight, Pacquiao said. Judges Craig Metcalfe and Michael Pernick scored the rematch 116-112 for Pacquiao, while Glenn Trowbridge favored the Filipino congressman 118-110. I tried, I really tried, Bradley said. I wanted that knockout. Manny is a great fighter, one of the best in the world. I lost to one of the greatest fighters in boxing. I kept trying to throw something over the top. Thats what we worked on in camp. That was the plan, but Pacquiao has great footwork. Pacquiao landed 35 percent of his 563 punches, while Bradley connected with just 22 percent of his 627 blow. Pacquiaos jab was much more effective, landing 23 percent to Bradleys measly 11 percent, and the Pacman had a slight edge in landing 148 power punches to Bradleys 109. Pacquiaos performance righted one of the biggest perceived wrongs in recent boxing history. Pacquiao was an eightdivision world champion on a 15-fight winning streak when Bradley was awarded a split decision in their last bout.
