On a cold January morning, two Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission biologists ventured into the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge in Naples in hopes of locating a collared female panther, since she was showing signs of preparations to set up a den. Thats when the biologists discovered an abandoned, dehydrated, nonresponsive, spotted fur ball under a palm frond. With his eyes still fused shut, the Florida panther kitten was hypothermic, weak and not far from death. He had to have been about a week old, they estimated, said J.D. Mendenhall, Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park parks services specialist. He would have not survived much longer. The biologists made an immediate decision to take the newborn for emergency care to Animal Specialty Hospital in Naples. They warmed him, fed him and gave him fluids, Mendenhall said. He then started to come around, which was a miracle. They didnt think he was going to make it. Day by day, he steadily improved. He soon didnt need intensive care anymore, and the decision was made to take him to Lowry Park Zoo in ON THE NET FWC rescue video: www youtube.com/ watch?v=8hvf F6NrKeM New resident a ball of fur MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleA Florida panther cub is quickly establishing himself as the cutest addition to the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. The cub, rescued from South Florida, is on display for brief periods of time during the day. See PANTHER/ Page A9 Catholic school parents optimistic after meetingFour Pope John Paul II Catholic School parents and supporters met Monday afternoon with Bishop Robert Lynchs top advisers to discuss a five-year plan to increase enrollment and keep the school open. Jennifer Petrella said an announcement regarding the Lecanto-based school should be coming in the next few days. They were impressed with the plan, she said. It looks very positive. The St. Petersburg Diocese, which Lynch heads, shocked the community in March when it announced that Citrus Countys lone Catholic school would close at the end of this semester due to declining enrollment. Lynch relented during a meeting with about 200 parents, supporters and alumni by giving an April 15 deadline to receive a workable plan to increase enrollment. Petrella said a committee of school supporters submitted the plan several days ago. She said the diocese hopes to have an announcement before Easter. Mike Wright, staff writer Sheriff: Two men arrested for robbing teen at knife point A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerTwo men allegedly beat and held a 17-year-old male at knife point before robbing him. Kenneth Robert Clarke, 22, and Bryan William Bradford, 29, both of Inverness, were arrested April 9 and 10 respectively and charged with one count of robbery with a firearm or other dangerous weapon. Bond is $50,000 for each. According to Citrus County Sheriffs Office reports, the teen victim was out with Clarke and a woman driving to her fathers residence to have her and Clarkes GPS ankle monitors recharged. Upon arrival, the teen remained in the vehicle while Clarke and the woman went inside. The teen told investigators after waiting for about 15 minutes in the car on the side of the road, Bradford and Clarke walked toward the vehicle. He said Clarke and Bradford told him to move to the back passenger seat because they were getting ready to drive to the store. The teen said as soon as he stepped out of the vehicle to move to the back seat, Bradford grabbed him in a headlock and wrestled him to the ground. Meanwhile, Clarke reportedly tried getting his wallet out of his shorts. As the teen resisted, he was reportedly struck several times by both Clarke and Bradford. At some point, the teen said, Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Week is set for April 20 to 26. Awareness needs to be for more than just one week. It needs to be 24/7/365, but this is a period of time that has been designated to heighten awareness of the problem. The weeklong awareness to oral head and neck cancer started in 1997. Its purpose is to bring attention to a disease that will strike 50,000 to 60,000 Americans each year and account for about 13,000 to 14,000 deaths. Tobacco, which is a big component of this problem, kills about 200,000 people each year. Oral head and neck cancer which involves the mouth, throat, saliva glands, tongue, tonsils and floor of the mouth is directly attributable to years of exposure to risk factors that are primarily tobacco (cigarettes, cigars, pipe, chewing tobacco, snuff) and alcoholic beverages. There is a lesser-known risk factor that includes the human papilloma virus (HPV), which can affect nonsmokers/drinkers and cause oral cancers. Also, peripheral areas of the oral cavity, such as the lips, are at risk for cancer, and that is mainly because of sun exposure. As with any type of cancer, early detection is the key to treatment and cure. Symptoms of oral head and neck cancer could include a growth in the mouth, a sore that does not heal or go away. It could be painful or not. Bleeding may occur. A good safety guideline if you are at risk is to Tent sales rules in review CHRISVANORMER Staff writerFor more than 10 years, county car dealers have complained that out-of-town dealers who set up weekend outdoor sales events were competing for customers without paying their dues. County dealerships have objected to temporary tent sales businesses that sell thousands of dollars worth of cars in a few days without buying land, constructing buildings and paying impact fees and property taxes. Steve Lamb of Crystal Motor Car Company said in 2006, If someone is going to come here and play in our sandbox, they need to make the same investment. The conflict settled down with county permitting rules amended in 2006, but the issue was revisited in 2012 when the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) adopted the new land development code (LDC).

Each year, the event highlights the law enforcement communitys support of the Special Olympics. Law enforcement officers from more than 300 agencies around the state carry the Flame of Hope in an intrastate relay covering hundreds of miles. The torch makes its way to the opening ceremonies of Floridas annual State Summer Gameson May16 to 18, at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando. About 1,600 athletes are expected to compete in Olympic-style sporting events, including soccer, tennis, volleyball, cycling, track and field, and more. This year, several Special Olympics athletes from Citrus County are expected to join the local Torch Run contingent for part of the run-and-ride event. Citrus Countys relay participants will meet at the sheriffs Crystal River Community Resource Office on U.S. 19, where the run will start at 8a.m. Runners will cover a distance of about three miles, traveling east along State Road 44 to the Crystal Springs Publix at the intersection of County Road 486. From there, bicyclists will ride the second leg of the cross-county relay from the Crystal Springs Publix to the Publix on C.R. 486 and Forest Ridge Boulevard. After a short stop, they will continue to the Publix on S.R. 44 in Inverness, which is just shy of a 16-mile ride. Runners will start the third leg at the Bealls in Inverness (S.R. 44 and Croft Avenue) and will continue east for a 2.5-mile run to the Publix in Inverness, where they will meet the bicyclists for brief stop. From that point, runners will complete this leg of the relay with a 1-mile jog to the sheriffs Operations Center in downtown Inverness. Relay participants have the option of joining in the entire 22.5miles or any portion of that distance. Publix is a premier sponsor of both the Florida Law Enforcement Torch Run and Special Olympics Florida, and will be providing healthy snacks and drinks for all relay participants. As in past years, Citrus Countys runners and bicyclists will raise funds for Special Olympics Florida through the sale of commemorative T-shirts and caps. The relay is a worldwide event, with participants in every state, plus many foreign countries. Torch Run today Money raised goes to Special Olympics Florida Clarke produced a weapon (knife or box cutter) and threatened him with it while Bradford was choking him to near unconsciousness. He said the pair eventually succeeded in taking his wallet, which had $510 in it, and began to flee the area in the vehicle. The teen said he tried reaching into the vehicles passenger side to retrieve his belongings from the front seat, but said Clarke began punching him in the face as the pair drove off, dragging him for several feet. The teen told investigators he eventually got free, but not before a tire ran over his right foot. The teen reportedly hopped on one leg to a nearby residence and called the police. Because Clark had a GPS monitor, he was traced to a gas station and arrested. Bradford was arrested the following day. When Bradford spoke to investigators, he reportedly confirmed the teens version of events. Bradford and Clarke were both transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility after their arrests.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com. ARRESTSContinued from Page A1 State BRIEF Feds extend funds to Fla. hospitals for one more yearTALLAHASSEE Federal health officials have agreed to funnel $2 billion to Florida hospitals and providers that serve uninsured patients for another year. The fund was in jeopardy because federal health officials wanted to eventually sunset the so-called low-income pool. Officials assumed patients would gain insurance under Medicaid expansion as part of the Affordable Care Act, giving hospitals another revenue stream to treat poor patients. But Florida lawmakers voted against Medicaid expansion. From wire reports

With less than two hours remaining, the Space X company called off Mondays planned launch from Cape Canaveral. A new launch date was not set; the next attempt could be no earlier than Friday. There was no immediate explanation for the postponement. The launch already had been delayed a full month. NASA almost delayed the launch over the weekend because of a computer outage at the International Space Station. But it decided Sunday that everything would be safe for the arrival of the Dragon capsule and its 21/2 tons of supplies.

No-party candidate blocks Democrats, others from commission primary MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerA Lecanto man who has finished far out of the running in three prior attempts at public office is planning to run for county commission as a no-party candidate, effectively shutting 60 percent of registered voters from a Republican primary that features the incumbent and three challengers. Michael Joey White, an assistant nuclear operations manager for Duke Energy, filed paperwork Monday with the Supervisor of Elections Office to run for the Citrus County Commission District 2. Other than White, the other four candidates are all Republicans, including incumbent John JJ Kenney. With official qualifying June 16 to 20, White must gather 987 petition signatures by May19 or pay a $2,349 qualifying fee to get his name on the ballot. Florida traditionally is a closedprimary state, meaning registered Republicans vote in the Republican primary and registered Democrats vote in a Democrat primary. In 1998, voters changed the Florida Constitution to allow open primaries when the primary would choose the winner because there are no other candidates of other parties or no-party affiliation. Asked if he knew that the District2 race, as it stood before Monday, would have opened the Aug.26 primary election to all voters regardless of party affiliation, White said: I wasnt 100percent on that. I knew there was something along those lines. White ran for state representative in 2002 and 2007, and school board in 2006. His highest vote tally was 22percent and his lowest 6.6percent. White said he decided to run no-party affiliation for county commission because he believes voters have lost faith in the twoparty system. He also said avoiding the primary gives me more time to get my message out before the November election. Since the open primary change in 1998, only once has a no-party affiliation candidate blocked Democrats and non-Republicans from voting in a Republican primary for county commission. In 2002, Jim Fowler won the Republican primary and then defeated a no-party candidate in the general election. That candidate was Scott Adams, who 10 years later was elected to office in a four-candidate Republican primary that was open to all voters because there were no other candidates. No-party affiliation candidates have not finished higher than third in Citrus County races when their opponents are Republicans and Democrats, election records show. Despite that history, White is optimistic. If I ran against someone head-to-head in the general, he said, I would stand a pretty good chance.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline.com.

LASKO/For the ChroniclePaul Dorey, 74, with Citrus Road Runners, crosses the finish line Saturday at the inaugural Schoolhouse Hustle, hosted by the Citrus County Education Foundation and held at CREST School. An estimated 500 paying participants attended the race, according to the event chair Tracy Bryson. Its all about public education and school budgets, Bryson said. The budgets are hurting and these programs help to support shortfalls. Hundreds of participants and well-wishers turned out Saturday at the inaugural Schoolhouse Hustle. The event was a great success, according to event chair Tracy Bryson. We are overwhelmed by the community support Bryson said, adding that proceeds from the event will benefit school funding for teacher mini-grants, student scholarships and more. Agriculture community urged to follow issues PATFAHERTY Staff writerThe Agricultural Alliance of Citrus County will track the Basin Action Management Plan for Kings Bay and the Crystal River. The Florida Department of Environment Protection (DEP) will have a public meeting on the plan at 10a.m. Wednesday, April23, at Crystal River City Hall. DEP is also scheduled to meet with Crystal River City Council on Monday, April21, and the Board of County Commissioners on Tuesday, April22. At the Agricultural Alliance meeting Monday, Chris Zajac of the Southwest Florida Water Management District recommended the agriculture community be involved with the basin plan. He said the DEP process would include looking at total maximum daily loads (TMDL) and the impact of nutrients on springs. TMDL is defined as the as the maximum amount of a given pollutant surface water can absorb and still meet water quality standards. According to DEP the plan will be the means for adopting the TMDLs. Described as a technical meeting, the public session will include an overview of the TMDL and an introduction to the management plan process. The plan is the means for implementing the adopted TMDLs. Zajac said it is the same process taking place at Rainbow Springs and Silver Springs in Marion County, where county staff is leading the effort. However, DEP will take the lead in Citrus County. The process at Rainbow Springs is targeting nitrate pollution blamed on fertilizer use, animal waste and septic tanks. At the Ag Alliances request, Zajac will recommend additional evenings on the management plan on the east side of the county. With election season looming, the Agricultural Alliance spent considerable time debating a process to accommodate candidates. Since the meetings are open to the public, candidates will be welcome to attend, be introduced like other guests are, and have a minute to speak. The next quarterly meeting has been scheduled for May 16, with dinner and program coordinated by Dr. Philip Geist. The group will also be polling members about possibly changing the monthly meeting day. Officials kill 5 bears after attack Associated PressLAKE MARY After a bear mauled a woman in the driveway of her suburban Florida home, dragging her four feet before she escaped, wildlife officials said Monday that they had killed five of the animals, who were dangerously accustomed to humans. It was unclear whether the bear that attacked Terri Frana, 45, on Saturday was one of those killed. DNA and other tests will be done on the five animals one shot and four euthanized in an attempt to determine that, officials said.

From wire reports Associated PressStreet artist Banksy may have struck again, leaving an espionage-themed graffiti artwork in the hometown of Britains electronic spy agency. A stenciled artwork has appeared on a wall in the western England city of Cheltenham, depicting three figures in trench coats and trilbys snooping on a telephone booth. Cheltenham is home to GCHQ, Britains electronic eavesdropping agency. The secretive organization found itself in the spotlight after some of its covert activities were revealed by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. The work has not been claimed on Banskys official website, but has many of the elusive artists hallmarks, including the stenciled technique and vein of social commentary.

It could prevent major fights between husbands and wives, at least if a new study that used voodoo dolls is right. Thats because low blood sugar can make spouses touchy, researchers propose. In fact, it can make them hangry, a combination of hungry and angry, said Ohio State University psychology researcher Brad Bushman. We need glucose for self-control, said Bushman, lead author of the study, which was released Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Anger is the emotion that most people have difficulty controlling. The researchers studied 107 married couples for three weeks. Each night, they measured their levels of the blood sugar glucose and asked each participant to stick pins in a voodoo doll representing his or her spouse. That indicated levels of aggression. The researchers found that the lower the blood sugar levels, the more pins were pushed into the doll. In fact, people with the lowest scores pushed in twice as many pins as those with the highest blood sugar levels, the researchers said. The study also found that the spouses were generally not angry at each other. About 70 percent of the time, people didnt put any pins in the doll, said study co-author Richard Pond Jr. at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. The average for the whole study was a bit more than one pin a night per person. Three people put all 51 pins in at one time and one person did that twice Pond said. Study: Snack might help avoid fights

Top Democratic lawmaker backs off carbon taxSACRAMENTO, Calif. The state Senate leader is backing off a proposal for a so-called carbon tax and instead wants to dedicate billions generated by Californias greenhouse gas reduction law to affordable housing, mass transit and high-speed rail. Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg said Monday that his willingness to pivot from a consumer fuel tax was driven by the need to fund environmentally related infrastructure projects while helping low-income Californians with housing. The Sacramento Democrat also threw his support behind Gov. Jerry Browns budget proposal to help finance the $68 billion bullet train. Steinbergs initial plan was quickly criticized as a direct hit to Californians even though the current cap-and-trade revenue system is expected to raise gasoline prices starting next year. His revised plan has backing from transit, housing and environmental groups.Relativitys last-minute bid for Maker rebuffedLOS ANGELES Relativity Media, a film financier and movie distributor, was rebuffed in a last-minute bid for Maker Studios, the YouTube video creator that had agreed to be bought by The Walt Disney Co. last month. Privately held Relativity offered cash and stock worth $525 million for Maker, plus up to $500 million in cash and stock if performance targets were met. Relativity also offered stock worth up to $75 million to key Maker talent and executives who did not have a stake in Maker. Maker said Monday that its board and the majority of its shareholders had approved the sale to Disney and expects that deal to close in the next few weeks. Makers deal with Disney was for $500 million in cash plus $450 million for meeting performance goals.Google buys drone maker Titan AerospaceNEW YORK Google has bought Titan Aerospace, a maker of solar-powered drones, saying it could help bring Internet access to remote parts of the world as well as solve other problems. Financial terms were not disclosed. Google Inc. said Monday that atmospheric satellites could also be used in disaster relief and assessing environmental damage. Titans atmospheric satellites, which are still in development and not yet commercially available, can stay in the air for as long as five years, according to reports. Before it was updated Monday to reflect the acquisition, Titans website cited a wide range of uses for the drones, including atmospheric and weather monitoring, disaster response and voice and data communications. Facebook Inc. was also in talks to buy New Mexicobased Titan earlier this year, but it acquired U.K.-based solar drone company Ascenta instead. Both Google and Facebook have launched ambitious projects that aim to get everyone on the planet online. Googles Project Loon sends giant balloons bearing Internetbeaming antennas into the stratosphere.Social Security halts effort to collect old debtsWASHINGTON The Social Security Administration is suspending a program in which thousands of people were having their tax refunds seized to recoup overpayments that happened more than a decade ago. Acting Social Security Commissioner Carolyn W. Colvin said Monday she has directed an immediate halt to the program while the agency does a review. Social Security recipients and members of Congress complained that people were being forced to repay overpayments that were sometimes paid to their parents or guardians when they were children. While this policy of seizing tax refunds to repay decadesold Social Security overpayments might be allowed under the law, it is entirely unjust, Democratic Sens. Senators Barbara Boxer of California and Barbara Mikulski of Maryland said in a letter to Colvin. After Colvins announcement, Boxer said in a statement: I am grateful that the Social Security Administration has chosen not to penalize innocent Americans while the agency determines a fair path forward on how to handle past errors. The Social Security Administration says it has identified about 400,000 people with old debts. They owe a total of $714 million. So far, the agency said it has collected $55 million. The program was authorized by a 2008 change in the law that allows Social Security and other federal agencies to use a Treasury program to seize federal payments to recoup debts that are more than 10 years old. Previously, there was a 10-year limit on using the program.Detroit announces online auction in blight fightDETROIT Detroit officials will soon have a new tool to help them fight blight: an auction website to give vacant, city-owned houses to people willing to quickly fix them up, city leaders said Monday. Beginning May 5, one home will be auctioned each day on the land bank website. Of the 15 homes currently listed for sale, the first dozen are located in Detroits East English Village neighborhood. The East English Village Association will host an April 27 open house for bidders interested in homes in the east side neighborhood. We are moving aggressively to take these abandoned homes and get families living in them again, said Mayor Mike Duggan.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, APRIL15, 2014 A7 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,650 1,700 1,750 1,800 1,850 1,900 OA NDJFM 1,800 1,860 1,920 S&P 500Close: 1,830.61 Change: 14.92 (0.8%) 10 DAYS 14,800 15,200 15,600 16,000 16,400 16,800 OA NDJFM 16,000 16,320 16,640 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 16,173.24 Change: 146.49 (0.9%) 10 DAYSAdvanced2026 Declined1046 New Highs61 New Lows45 Vol. (in mil.)3,066 Pvs. Volume3,695 1,846 2,223 1385 1239 26 82 NYSE NASD DOW16184.7616028.2916173.24+146.49+0.91%-2.43% DOW Trans.7450.297346.247403.24+40.85+0.55%+0.04% DOW Util.539.19534.31537.70+3.38+0.63%+9.61% NYSE Comp.10380.1910287.3010359.44+78.50+0.76%-0.39% NASDAQ4050.793986.504022.69+22.96+0.57%-3.68% S&P5001834.191815.801830.61+14.92+0.82%-0.96% S&P4001331.861315.331324.61+6.11+0.46%-1.33% Wilshire 500019519.2519300.5419454.42+133.27+0.69%-1.28% Russell 20001126.311105.561115.35+3.91+0.35%-4.15% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

We Cater to Cowards! 000HRHT Try Our 6 Month Braces 000HSN8 Associated PressU.S. stocks mounted a modest rally on Monday, helping investors recover some of the ground lost after a rough finish last week. Investors were bracing for another round of discouraging earnings and a third consecutive loss for the stock market. But the market pushed higher from the get-go Monday, receiving a boost from solid earnings from Citigroup and a strong pickup in retail sales last month. Among the stocks that rose sharply were WebMD, Edwards Lifesciences and Goodrich Petroleum. Stocks rose after the Commerce Department reported that retail sales increased 1.1 percent in March, the best gain since September 2012. The government also revised Februarys figure to a 0.7 percent gain, more than double its previous estimate. Sales improved particularly in the second half of March, as unusually cold weather that gripped much of the country this winter began to ease, motivating more people to go out and spend money. As we look forward, the consumer may continue to (spend) and may continue to drive the economy overall, said J.J. Kinahan, chief strategist with TD Ameritrade. Citigroup helped stoke the rally. The bank reported a 2.5 percent jump in first-quarter profit as both income and revenue beat Wall Streets expectations. That was a welcome surprise following an earnings miss last week by JPMorgan Chase. A positive earnings outlook from health information portal WebMd also helped. The gains faded somewhat late in the afternoon. The Nasdaq composite slipped briefly into negative territory, harking back to last weeks sharp drop in Internet and biotechnology stocks. A wave of buying in the last half-hour of trading pushed the Nasdaq and other indexes to solid gains for the day. It was the markets first finish in the green since April 9. The Standard & Poors 500 index gained 14.92 points, or 0.8 percent, to close at 1,830.61. All ten industry sectors in the S&P 500 increased, led by energy stocks, which rose 1.3 percent.

OPINION Page A8TUESDAY, APRIL 15, 2014 Recognize public servants, May 4 to 10Across the country and in communities like Citrus County, government employees serve and protect our nation every day. During Public Service Recognition Week, May 410, we gratefully acknowledge their service. This includes government workers at all levels to include city, county, state and federal employees. I want to personally thank the currently working and retired federal workers in Florida. Federal employees care for our veterans and work side by side with our military to defend our country. They conduct cutting-edge research to improve public health and regulate the safety of our food and medicines. And right here in Florida, air traffic controllers ensure the safety of thousands of passengers every year. These are all critical services. We may not realize all that Americas public servants do for us on a daily basis. Lets not take for granted the services they provide. During Public Service Recognition Week and throughout the year, please take time to say thank you to public employees at all levels of government throughout Citrus County, in Florida and our country.Joel Heath president, Chapter 776 National Active and Retired Federal Employees AssociationSchool system failingVicky Iozzia is spot on. Why would we want innovation, improvement, competition or to stimulate improvement in the traditional schools? We rank 30th in the world in math; in reading, we rank 20th; and in science, 36th. Employers complain of communication skills even at the university level, and being able to write clearly or do simple math without a machine is all but a lost art. But hey, our kids know about alternative lifestyles, multiculturalism and are not exposed to any mention of Christianity. Yep, Gov. (Rick) Scott should hang his head in shame for attempting to change this level of success.Mike Dragoun Lecanto PHOENIXFrom the Goldwater Institute, the fertile frontal lobe of the conservative movements brain, comes an innovative idea that is gaining traction in Alaska, Arizona and Georgia, and its advocates may bring it to at least 35 other states legislatures. It would use the Constitutions Article V to move the nation back toward the limited government the Constitutions framers thought their document guaranteed. The Compact for America is the innovation of the Goldwater Institutes Nick Dranias, who proposes a constitutional convention carefully called under Article V to enact a balanced-budget amendment written precisely enough to preclude evasion by the political class. This class has powerful and permanent incentives for deficit spending, which delivers immediate benefits to constituents while deferring a significant portion of the benefits costs. Heres what the compacts amendment would stipulate: Total federal government outlays shall not exceed receipts unless the excess of outlays is financed exclusively by debt which initially shall be authorized to be 105 percent of outstanding debt on the date the amendment is ratified. Congress may increase the authorized debt only if a majority of state legislatures approve an unconditional, single-subject measure proposing the amount of such increase. Whenever outstanding debt exceeds 98 percent of the set limit, the president shall designate for impoundment specific expenditures sufficient to keep debt below the authorized level. The impoundment shall occur in 30 days unless Congress designates an alternative impoundment of the same or greater amount. Any bill for a new or increased general revenue tax shall require a two-thirds vote of both houses of Congress except for a bill that reduces or eliminates an existing tax exemption, deduction or credit, or that provides for a new end user sales tax which would completely replace every existing income tax levied by the U.S. government. Now, leave aside questions about this tax policy, or about the wisdom of constitutionalizing any tax policy. Do you believe a balanced-budget amendment is a required response to the nature of todays politics and governance, now that courts neglect to do their duty in enforcing Congress adherence to the Constitutions enumeration of its powers? If so, the compacts amendment is remarkably resistant to evasion. Congress, which relishes deficit spending, would not, unilaterally and unpressured, send this amendment to the states for ratification. Hence the Goldwater Institutes recourse to Article V. It provides, in the same sentence, two amendment procedures, one of which has never been used the calling of a convention by two-thirds of the state legislatures. Many prudent people remembering that the 1787 Constitutional Conventions original purpose was merely to remedy defects of the Articles of Confederation recoil from the possibility of a runaway convention and the certainty that James Madison would not be there to make it turn out well. The compact, however, would closely confine a convention: State legislatures can form a compact a cooperative agreement to call a convention for the codified, one-item agenda of ratifying the balanced-budget amendment precisely stipulated in advance. The Constitutions Article I, Section 10 says: No state shall, without the consent of Congress ... enter into any agreement or compact with another state. But court precedent makes clear that states do not need congressional consent for compacts that exercise state power without displacing federal power, such as the constitutionally stipulated power to apply for an Article V convention. States can join the Goldwater Institutes compact without waiting for Congress approval. Article V says Congress has no discretion it shall call a convention on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states. A convention called in accordance with the institutes compact would adopt its limited agenda with the force of federal and state law, any deviation from which would render the convention which is limited to a 24-hour session void. The compact designates as the sole delegates to the convention the governors of participating states, officials who will not run the political risk of wrecking the convention by ignoring the law. In the 85th and final of the Federalist Papers written to persuade Americans wary of centralized power to ratify the Constitution, Alexander Hamilton said: We may safely rely on the disposition of the state legislatures to erect barriers against the encroachments of the national authority. States would be the prime movers of, and would be substantially empowered by, the institutes amendment-by-compact plan. Members of this nascent movement to use Article V have a name: Fivers.

Senate Bill 1194 and House Bill 1153 would require volunteer groups that support parks, veteran affairs, elderly affairs and a variety of other government organizations to operate under the open-government standards as other agencies. This includes a sunset review every five years that could possibly repeal their status and shut them down. The bills are the brainchild of Senate President Don Gaetz, who has said through a spokesperson the bills are samples of his commitment to ethics reform. He alluded to friends groups using taxpayer funding, but provided no backup information to support the claim. Some friends groups have already spoken out against the bills, but the Department of Environmental Protection, which oversees the state park system, has not taken a stance on the bills. Friends groups fear it will hinder their fundraising ability or jeopardize funds already set aside for certain projects. State park friends groups help support an industry that has more than 25 million visitors each year and ingest more than a billion dollars annually into state coffers. It is baffling to think the Legislature, especially a Republicancontrolled Legislature, would want to create bigger government, but that is exactly what these two bills do. There are plenty of ethical reforms needed in the Legislature. Curbing the excessive influence by lobbyists and giving more authority to the ethics commission would be a good start. With so many obvious choices for reform, why start with a group of volunteers whose only goal is to improve their community? Perhaps if enough of these ethics reform bills are passed, voters will actually think the Legislature is cleaning up its act, when in fact, this appears to be another shell game.

Then its money out of the state pocket into our pocket. Money out of our pocket back into the countys pocket.Coordinate eventsThe Sound Off, Plan those events, Sunday, April 6, I could not agree with this person more. Time after time, I see three and four events that are going on the same day, the same time and then again nothing. Id certainly like to attend some of these festivals when theyre going on, but cant get from county to county to attend everything all in one day and have enough time to enjoy it. So I totally agree that the event planners of each and every one of these events need to all get their heads together and take a weekend and say, you know, This is my weekend.Making noiseBoat noise complaint. To the family who bought a home on the river and cannot stand the noise of boats: Why in the world did you build and move on the river? I cannot stand the noise of aircraft flying over my roof every day and night, so I had more sense than to purchase a home in the flight path of a runway. My advice to the hater of boat noises: Move.Accident on the horizonThe next location in Inverness where theres going to be a bad accident is the private driveway coming out of the new Publix store on State Road 44. Those people seem to think they have the right of way. If there isnt a stop sign in there for them, maybe it should be considered before there is a bad accident there, because Ive had people pull out in front of me there. Its almost unbelie vable.Thanks for great eventI am calling to say thank you to the Crystal River Mall for hosting the event for the boxing championship. I work at the mall, but I came as a guest to the tournaments. It was wonderful to see such a community together but also the children with their great, positive attitudes. They werent negative. They had selfcontrol, and I am just very proud to see that this coach, Don, took the time and the effort to put together an event that involved so many young children and their parents. It was absolutely just fabulous. It was the 2014 Florida State Junior Olympic Boxing Championship, and I truly can say it was a wonderful event. I just want to say thank you to him for putting this event on and our community for being so gracious and attending.

LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, APRIL15, 2014 A9 000HQYC Tampa, Mendenhall said. Doctors were able to get him to feed and grow there. When his eyes opened, the first thing he saw was the veterinarian techs and doctors, human beings. So he is heavily imprinted on people and has never experienced other adult panthers. That is how they learn. At this age is when their mothers start taking them out of the den. They watch their mothers and learn what to hunt and how to hunt. They are learning what to be afraid of and what not to be afraid of. Because of his human imprint and no natural instruction for survival, the FWC and the Captive Panther Working Group decided to transport the kitten to the wildlife park in Homosassa Springs. The Homosassa wildlife park is an assistedliving facility for Florida wildlife such as this, Mendenhall said. They knew that bringing him here would ensure that he would get the proper care and training to allow him to be an ambassador. Thats what all of the animals in here do, they are ambassadors for Florida residents and visitors about their wildlife neighbors. On April 3, the 11.5-pound un-collared Florida panther 205 (UCFP205) name to be still assigned arrived at his permanent home as a young 11-week-old resident. He will be here for the rest of his life, Mendenhall said. He will be worked with behaviorally by our lead animal trainer so that he can come out and be comfortable in the atmosphere where people are looking at him. We are introducing him to the whole atmosphere of noise and people very slowly so that he can adapt. This cat is a miracle cat, Mendenhall said. He really has imprinted so well on people already. And just like humans, every cat has a story to be told. His story is about a will to survive, the park ranger said. But it is also a story about a lot of dedicated people who cared for his survival. This is the end result of what can happen when all of these agencies work together. Visitors can catch a glimpse, at a distance, of the kitten at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. daily. The parks staff has been submitting names for the kitten. His name will be announced at the Earth Day celebration on April 19.Contact Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-563-5660, ext. 1334, or eworthington@ chronicleonline.com. PANTHERContinued from Page A1 During their discussion in April 2013, board members directed staff to send the language for temporary use dealing with outdoor retail sales events back to the Planning and Development Commission (PDC) to distinguish options between vacant property and developed sites. The proposed ordinance affects outdoor sales covering everything from cars, couches and Christmas trees, not leaving out yard sales. County commissioners also asked for clarification about allowing temporary uses for car sales at the Citrus County Fairgrounds. The new draft ordinance that will go before the PDC on Thursday reflects comments made by stakeholders at a September workshop. At that workshop, representatives of county car dealerships expressed their opposition to changing the ordinance to allow for temporary outdoor retail sales events that sell merchandise that is not associated with an existing business. Staff added general site plan requirements for all temporary uses that require permits. The ordinance limits outdoor retail sales events to merchandise sold within an approved shopping center. Current language allows temporary uses associated with an existing business. The proposed amendment returns to the previous LDC language that states that the use must be the same as the established permitted use on the property. The draft ordinance adds definitions for outdoor retail sales events, public fairground, offsite sales events and shopping center. Staff added a description of an out-parcel to clarify the offsite retail sales event standards. The proposed amendment clarifies temporary outdoor retail sales events for selling merchandise that is the same as what is sold within an existing business to allow for tent sales or sidewalk sales. If outdoor retail sales events are to be allowed on vacant out-parcels associated with a shopping center, the name of the temporary use event can be changed to an offsite retail sales event. The definition of the county fairground would be broadened to a public fairground to allow for public fairs and expositions including the Citrus County Fair. A shopping center would be defined as: A group of commercial retail establishments which may include out-parcels that are planned, constructed and managed as a total entity, with customer and employee parking provided on site, and with landscaping, internal traffic circulation, access management, pedestrian amenities and signage provided in accordance with an approved plan. Outdoor retail sales events that require a temporary use permit would not be allowed on vacant properties except on a vacant out-parcel within an approved shopping center. An out-parcel would be separate from but contiguous to a primary commercial development. For time limits, outdoor sales events could operate for four days with a maximum of four occurrences per parcel per calendar year. Offsite retail sales events that include motor vehicles, furniture and plants can be sold on a vacant out-parcel within an approved shopping center for four days per sale with a maximum of four occurrences per calendar year for any shopping center. Seasonal sales, for such items as Christmas trees or pumpkins, can be for 90 days per calendar year with no more than 30 days per occurrence or three occurrences per parcel per year.

SALESContinued from Page A1 make sure that if you have a sore that does not heal within a week or two, you have it evaluated by your physician. Unexplained bleeding in the oral cavity can also be a sign of oral head and neck cancer. It could be just a minor amount in the saliva, or it could be more so, depending on the size of the area that is irritated and bleeding. Speech and swallowing problems can also indicate involvement in the oral cavity. The tongue is a structure that is important not only for taste, but also speech and swallowing. Impairment of that structure by a cancerous growth can cause these types of symptoms. Other more subtle possible symptoms could include a lump in the neck that represents regional spread to the cervical lymph nodes from a growth in the oral cavity that has not yet been detected. Sometimes persistent, one-sided ear pain can also indicate that there is a growth that is ongoing and irritating a nerve that happens to have a branch that also supplies or innervates the ear. Sometimes something as subtle as a lump in your throat or sensation that you have to clear your throat or repeatedly swallow for unknown reasons could be early signs and symptoms and should be followed up. So, what should you do? First and foremost, quit any tobacco use immediately, and curtail your alcohol intake and do a self-examination. Are there any lumps or bumps or white or red patches inside the mouth, on the cheek, the tongue, the floor of the mouth, etc.? If so, have it checked out if it does not heal in a week or two. If you do not think this is going to affect you, it is just going to get the other guy, you are fooling yourself. If you do not believe me, go online. There are plenty of graphic photos of what excessive tobacco and alcohol can do to the oral cavity and what this devastating disease can do to cripple your normal oral function including speech, swallowing and breathing, not to mention how you would look after an extensive surgery and radiation.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

French school carries out DNA dragnetPARIS French investigators began taking DNA samples Monday from 527 male students and staff at a high school including boys as young as 14 as they searched for the assailant who raped a teenage girl on the closed campus. Testing began Monday at Fenelon-Notre Dame high school in western France. All those who received summonses last week were warned that any refusal could land them in police custody, and no one rejected the sweeping request to test the high schools male population. Prosecutor Isabelle Pagenelle said investigators had exhausted all other leads in the Sept. 30 rape of the girl in a dark bathroom at the school. The choice is simple for me, she said. Either I file it away and wait for a match in what could be several years, or I go looking for the match myself.Venezuelan journalist freed 8 days after kidnapCARACAS, Venezuela A Venezuelan journalist was freed Monday, eight days after she was kidnapped by masked men in front of her house. Interior Minister Miguel Rodriguez Torres told a news conference that 3,000 people had been hunting for Nairobi Pinto, chief correspondent for the Globovision television station, and the police pressure played an important role in prompting the captors to free her. He said nobody had been arrested and did not say if a ransom was paid. Rodriguez Torres said officials have not wanted to speculate about a motive for the kidnapping, though he noted that Pinto is a university law student and member of a Christian group.Egypt: El-Sissi in final step to run for presidentCAIRO Egypts former military chief on Monday took the final formal step to run in next months presidential election, submitting to the election commission eight times the number of signatures required, his campaign said in a statement. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, a retired field marshal, did not deliver the 200,000 signatures in person. His campaign said a legal adviser, Mohammed Bahaa Abou Shaqah, delivered them. Photos released by the campaign and footage aired on local TV networks showed security guards delivering white boxes with an image of the retired soldier plastered on the side along with the name of the province from which it said the signatures were obtained. It is mandatory for any presidential hopeful to secure 25,000 signatures from at least 15 of the nations 27 provinces in order to run in the May 26-27 vote. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressHORLIVKA, Ukraine The fuel is local, but the matches are Russian. That in a nutshell is how the insurgency threatening the survival of Ukraine as a unified state is increasingly unfolding. Over the past 10 days, more than a dozen government offices in eastern Ukraine have been taken over by pro-Russian forces, with most of the seizures following the same pattern. Aggressive gangs, sometimes carrying firearms and wearing military fatigues, storm the buildings. The Ukrainian flag is replaced with a Russian one. Then local men move in to hold them. Those capturing the buildings insist they are carrying out the will of the people and have demanded a referendum on autonomy for the eastern Donetsk region. Relatively small numbers have hit the streets in support, however, and it is increasingly evident the purported uprising is far from spontaneous and is being carried out with unerring coordination. Russia has tens of thousands of troops massed along Ukraines eastern border. Western governments accuse Moscow of fueling the unrest and worry that the specter of bloodshed could be used as a pretext for a Russian invasion, in a repeat of events in Crimea a few weeks ago. The Ukrainian governments inability to quash the pro-Russian insurgency was highlighted by acting President Oleksandr Turchynovs call Monday for the deployment of United Nations peacekeeping troops in the east of his country. He said the presence of Russian meddling was clear in the unrest gripping his country. The Russian Federation is sending special units to the east of our country, which seize administrative buildings with the use of weapons and are putting the lives of hundreds of thousands of our citizens in danger, Turchynov said, according to the presidential website. Peacekeepers, however, would have to be authorized by the U.N. Security Council, where Russia holds a veto. Pro-Russian activists point to what they said is an aggressively nationalistic government as justification for their actions. The Cabinet in charge since the overthrow of President Viktor Yanukovych in February includes some nationalist figures, but there is no substantive evidence the Russian-speaking population has been subject to any widespread intimidation in recent weeks. Demonstrations rock eastern Ukraine Associated PressA pro-Russian activist stands Monday during the mass storming of a police station in the eastern Ukrainian town of Horlivka. Several government buildings have fallen to mobs of Moscow loyalists in recent days as unrest spreads across the east of the country. Associated PressABUJA, Nigeria Suspected Islamic militants struck in the heart of Nigeria on Monday with a massive rush-hour bomb blast at a bus station that killed at least 72 people and wounded 164 in the deadliest attack ever on the nations capital. Survivors screamed in anguish and the stench of burning fuel and flesh hung over the area, where billows of black smoke rose as firefighters worked to put out the fires. Rescue workers and police gathered body parts as ambulances rushed the wounded to hospitals. Visiting the blast scene, President Goodluck Jonathan blamed Boko Haram, the homegrown terrorist network that has targeted schools, churches, mosques, villages and government facilities, killing thousands in its five-year campaign to make Nigeria an Islamic state. Authorities said at least 72 people were killed and 164 wounded, though the death toll was sure to climb because it did not include victims whose bodies were dismembered, the health ministry said. It was the deadliest attack yet in Abuja, the centrally located capital that is hundreds of miles from Boko Harams stronghold in Nigerias northeast. I cant count the number of people that died. They took them in open vehicles. People were running and there was confusion, said civil servant Ben Nwachukwu. A counter-terrorism expert said the bomb appeared to have been buried underground, while the emergency management agency said the explosives were apparently hidden in a vehicle. Bus driver Tunji Adeniran said he was about to leave the bus terminal when the explosion struck. The bomb shattered my vehicle, he said. One vehicle was in front of me. As he started his car, I heard a loud noise. I thought it was his car that exploded. Adeniran said his brother, bank worker Mohammed Ochai, was fatally injured in the blast and died on the way to the hospital. The explosion, which struck at 6:45 a.m. in the poor satellite neighborhood of Nyanya, left a 4-foot-deep crater and destroyed 16 luxury buses and 24 minibuses and cars, police spokesman Frank Mba said. Security personnel battled to cordon off the area as a bomb detonation team combed it for secondary explosives amid fiery blasts from exploding car tanks ignited by the blaze. Thousands of bystanders gathered, ignoring warnings to stay away. While Jonathan blamed Boko Haram, there was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombing, though bus stations are a favored Boko Haram target. In March 2013, the extremists drove a car bomb into the main bus station in Kano, Nigerias second-biggest city, killing at least 25 people.

NationBRIEFS Chief: Suspects wore GPS devices during killingsANAHEIM, Calif. A police chief in California said two parolees charged with killing four women were wearing GPS trackers at the time of the murders and there may be more victims. Anaheim Chief Raul Quezada said Monday that Franc Cano and Steven Dean Gordon were both wearing the ankle monitors last fall when the women were killed in Anaheim and Santa Ana. Cano and Gordon are registered sex offenders who have known each other since at least 2012. They were charged Monday with four counts of murder and four counts of rape and could face the death penalty if convicted.Disgraced former city manager gets prisonLOS ANGELES The disgraced former city manager who became the face of a multimillion dollar corruption scandal in the small Los Angeles suburb of Bell was sentenced in federal court Monday to 33 months in prison for income tax evasion. Robert Rizzo, 60, pleaded guilty in January to conspiracy and filing a false federal income tax return. Rizzo also has pleaded no contest to 69 counts of fraud, misappropriation of public funds, falsification of public records and other charges. He is due to be sentenced in state court on those charges Wednesday and faces 12 years in prison. U.S. attorneys spokesman Thom Mrozek said Rizzo also was ordered to repay nearly $256,000 in back taxes and serve his federal sentence consecutively with his state punishment. Rizzo acknowledged creating a corporation to claim more than $700,000 in phony financial losses to reduce his tax liability on the $1.5 million salary and benefits package he was receiving as city manager.Judge wont halt new sanity review of James HolmesDENVER The judge in the Colorado theater shooting case is rejecting a defense attempt to block a second sanity evaluation of defendant James Holmes. But in rulings Monday, the judge also says hell keep the new examination on hold in case the defense wants to appeal his order. Holmes pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of killing 12 people and injuring 70 in the 2012 attack. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. Holmes underwent a mandatory sanity evaluation last year. The key findings havent been made public. From wire reports

Matt Wieters and J.J. Hardy each had three hits, scored twice and drove in a run for the Orioles, who were coming off a three-game series against Toronto in which they scored only five runs in 30 innings. In this one, Baltimore built a 6-0 lead over the first three innings and coasted to the finish. The Orioles had 13 hits, including five doubles. It was by far the worst of Archers 30 big league starts. The seven runs and 12 hits he allowed were both career highs, and his ERA jumped from 1.38 to 4.50. The performance came less than two weeks after the Rays gave Archer a sixyear contract that guarantees the righthander $25.5 million. Chen (2-1) retired his first 10 batters and didnt allow a hit until James Loney doubled with one out in the fifth. The left-hander gave up one run, five hits and two walks in 6 1/3 innings. In his previous two starts, Chen yielded eight runs and 21 hits in 10 2/3 innings. He was facing a Tampa Bay team that has been struggling at the plate. The Rays have scored only 14 runs in their last eight games and have tallied three runs or fewer in seven of the last eight. Tampa Bays only run came in the sixth inning when Ben Zobrist walked Phelps diving back in the pool Associated PressMichael Phelps is coming out of retirement, the first step toward possibly swimming at the 2016 Rio Olympics. The 22-time Olympic medalist will compete for the first time since the 2012 London Games at a meet in Mesa, Ariz., on April 24-26. Bob Bowman, the swimmers longtime coach, told The Associated Press on Monday that Phelps is entered in three events the 50and 100-meter freestyles and the 100 butterfly. I think hes just going to test the waters a little bit and see how it goes, Bowman said by phone from Baltimore. I wouldnt say its a fullfledged comeback. Phelps returned to training last fall and re-entered the U.S. drugtesting program. He has completed his six-month waiting period by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency to be eligible for competition. Bowman said Phelps is pretty far from being back in top form. Hes been training Monday through Friday with Bowmans team at the North Baltimore Aquatic Club. Hes gotten back into good shape since September, the coach said. He can give a good effort and certainly not be embarrassed. Hes in enough shape to swim competitively. Besides Phelps, USA Swimming said Olympians Ryan Lochte and Katie Ledecky are among those expected to swim in the Arena Grand Prix at Skyline Aquatic Center. Phelps turns 29 in June and is the winningest and most decorated athlete in Olympic history. He captured 18 gold medals and 22 medals overall at the last three Summer Games. He broke Mark Spitzs record for a single Olympics by winning eight gold medals at Beijing in 2008. Phelps had vowed that he wouldnt swim into his 30s. Since retiring less than two years ago, he has stayed busy with a chain of swim schools, a foundation focused on water safety and appearances on behalf of his sponsors. He devoted lots of time to golf and participated in a reality show with famed coach Hank Haney. His camp is being low-key about the comeback. I think hes just really enjoying it, Bowman said. He enjoys the training and being physically fit. He just kind of wants to see where hes at. Its more really for fun. Its been nice for me to see him swim just for the joy of it really. In Mesa, Phelps will swim 100 free and 100 fly preliminaries on the first day. Then, if he qualifies, hell Michael Phelps See PHELPS/ Page B3 Local softball teams begin district play today in InvernessC.J. RISAK CorrespondentHeres the bottom line: If things go according to plan in softball District 5A-6, then this is certain anything can happen. Citrus, which hosts the district tournament beginning today, and Dunnellon tied for the best regular-season record, each at 4-2. Crystal River was third at 3-3 and Lecanto placed last at 1-5. The tiebreaker gave Citrus the top seed, which means it will play Lecanto today. That may not be a favor, considering a year ago it was Lecanto that routed topseeded Citrus in the 6A-6 district final and ended up reaching the regional semifinals. Keep this in mind too: When these teams met for the first time this season, Lecanto led 7-3 entering the bottom of the seventh. Only a miraculous five-run rally saved the Hurricanes, an outcome that sent Lecanto spiraling into an abyss it has yet to climb out of. The Panthers can hit. Their defense is good, but not consistently so. The teams pitching has struggled, or at least it hasnt been good enough to overcome any mistakes that are made in the field evident in a seven-game losing streak that finally ended with Fridays 11-1 win over Wildwood. During that skid, Lecanto surrendered an average of more than eight runs a game. While Lecanto struggled, posting a 6-14 overall record, Citrus won six of its final seven, the only blemish a 3-1 loss in its final district game against Dunnellon. The Hurricanes were 19-5 overall and with Kelly Abramowich in the circle, they boast the countys top pitcher. Their defense is strong, too, and propelled by Erica Corlew, Emaly Ferreira, Jordan Josey, Kayla Quesenberry and a host of others, the offense is powerful. Unless Lecanto can find a way to generate plenty of runs against Abramowich, and more importantly also find some pitching, it could be a short stay for the Panthers. Todays first game at Citrus will pit Dunnellon, another team with plenty of offensive prowess, against Crystal River. The two teams split their two district games, the Pirates winning 8-7 and losing 11-6. Both games were played by mid-February, so one can assume both teams have changed since. Pitching and defense are always key factors in tournament play, and Crystal River has experience in that area with McCale Wilson. The Pirates also have strong defense and solid offense, starting with Marissa Pool and Dani Gomez. The Tigers run the bases well and can hit, with seven players totaling at least nine runs batted in. Crystal River must keep them off the bases and, when they do get on base, they must prevent them from taking the extra base and creating runs. And the Pirates must hit. Dunnellon likely will start freshman Natasha Pierro, whos good, but hittable. The sooner Crystal River can get to her, the better its chances. One thing is certain about the 5A-6 tournament: Whoever does reach District 5A-6 softballToday at Citrus High School 5 p.m. No. 2 Dunnellon vs. No. 3 Crystal River. 7 p.m. No. 1 Citrus vs. No. 4 Lecanto.

Associated PressPHILADELPHIA Dan Uggla hit two home runs, including a grand slam in the ninth inning Monday night that lifted the Atlanta Braves to a wild 9-6 win over the Philadelphia Phillies. Evan Gattis also homered twice as the Braves won their fourth straight. The teams combined for five homers and 12 runs in the final two innings. Gattis, Uggla and Andrelton Simmons hit consecutive homers in the eighth that put Atlanta ahead 5-1. Domonic Browns three-run homer capped a five-run bottom of the eighth that gave the Phillies a 6-5 lead. But the Braves rallied against Jake Diekman (1-1). B.J. Upton walked, Freddie Freeman reached on a grounder when second baseman Chase Utley tried for a forceout and Justin Upton walked. After Gattis struck out, Uggla drove an 0-2 pitch from Diekman deep to left. Luis Avilan (3-1) wound up with the win and David Carpenter got his first save.American League Mariners 7, Rangers 1ARLINGTON, Texas Mike Zunino homered an inning before adding an RBI single in Seattles strange six-run outburst that included three Texas Rangers errors and a replay reversal that gave the Mariners a run in their 7-1 victory. Roenis Elias (1-1) worked into the seventh inning with five strikeouts for his first major league victory in the lefthanders third career start. The Mariners went ahead to stay in the fifth on Zuninos solo homer off Colby Lewis (0-1), who made his first big league start in 21 months after elbow and hip operations.National League Nationals 9, Marlins 2MIAMI Jordan Zimmermann bounced back from the shortest start of his career to pitch seven innings and lead the Washington Nationals to a 9-2 win over the Miami Marlins, who endured their eighth loss in a row. Bryce Harper had two doubles and an RBI triple for Washington. He has batted .520 over his past seven games to boost his average to .348. Catcher Sandy Leon hit his first career home run, while Tyler Moore also homered and had an RBI single. Anthony Rendon drove in three runs with a double and a triple, and Danny Espinosa doubled and tripled for two of the Nationals 11 extra-base hits. Zimmermann (1-0), who lasted only 1 2/3 innings when he gave up five runs against Miami last week, became the first Nationals starter to go seven innings this season. He allowed two runs, struck out seven and lowered his ERA from 8.10 to 5.27.Cardinals 4, Brewers 0MILWAUKEE Lance Lynn struck out 11 in seven innings, Jon Jay hit a three-run homer and the St. Louis Cardinals snapped the Milwaukee Brewers nine-game winning streak with a 4-0 victory. Lynn allowed three hits over seven innings before Carlos Martinez finished off the surprising Brewers, who still have the majors best record at 10-3. Lynn (3-0) frustrated hitters by mixing a fastball that topped 95 mph with a slider. Jhonny Peralta hit a solo shot in the second off Brewers starter Matt Garza (0-2) before Jay tagged a ball over the wall near the right field corner in the sixth.

Starting rotation: Kris Medlen, Brandon Beachy, Patrick Corbin, Jarrod Parker, Matt Moore. Bullpen: Bobby Parnell, David Hernandez, Bruce Rondon, Luke Hochevar, Cory Gearrin. The list doesnt even include New York Mets star Matt Harvey, who is still recovering from elbow surgery last October. Is there a reason so many pitchers seem vulnerable to elbow injuries right now? Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon has a theory. Sometimes you have to look underneath the surface and I tend to agree it has a lot to do with youth sports and travel teams and multiple travel teams and kids pitching to win when theyre really young and throwing too many pitches, Maddon said. I think the more recent epidemic curiously might be tied to what theyre doing before they even get here professionally. Maddon and the Rays are hoping for the best after Moore went on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday. If thats all the time the lefthander misses, the Rays should consider themselves fortunate. It was not immediately clear if he would need surgery, but Tampa Bay fans are obviously bracing for the possibility. Here are five things to watch around the majors this week. MARQUEE MATCHUP: Texas sends Yu Darvish to the mound Wednesday night against Seattles Felix Hernandez in an early duel between AL West aces. Darvish and Hernandez have combined to strike out 45 with only four walks so far this season. Darvish has not allowed a run in 15 innings. OFF AND RUNNING: The Milwaukee Brewers have won nine in a row, and although its far too early to proclaim them NL Central favorites, theyll have a chance to open up a nice lead if they can keep this streak going. Second-place St. Louis visits Milwaukee for a three-game series that started Monday, and the Brewers are already three games ahead of the Cardinals. Carlos Gomez, Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez are swinging the bats well for the Brewers. CASHING IN: San Diego righthander Andrew Cashner was once known for throwing 100 mph, but the tall Texan now favors movement over velocity, particularly with his sinker. After striking out 11 in a one-hitter against Detroit on Friday, Cashner takes the mound again Wednesday night against Colorado. DIVISION RIVALS: Detroit edged Cleveland by one game to win the AL Central last year, with the Indians settling for a wild card. The Tigers took the division on the strength of a 15-4 head-tohead record against the Indians. The teams meet this week for the first time in 2014, when Detroit hosts a three-game series starting today. STAT OF THE WEEK: Kansas City went without a home run in its first seven games before Alex Gordon finally went deep Wednesday. Gordons homer is still the only one of the year for the Royals. Associated PressTampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon has a theory on why so many pitchers are having elbow problems this season.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE decide which race to swim for the evening finals, Bowman said. Hell swim the 50 free on the second day and might swim the 50 fly just for fun, the coach added. Phelps will stick to the shorter races and some relays rather than the grueling individual medleys he swam during the height of his career. Hes really doing this because he wants to theres no outside pressure at all, Bowman said. Olympian Jessica Hardy, who will compete in Mesa, said many swimmers were surprised by news of Phelps comeback. He kept it pretty much under wraps, she told the AP. Even if hes not at peak performance, its great for the sport and each athlete particularly to keep learning from him. I dont think anyone wants to put pressure on him. Hes accomplished everything you pretty much can. Its just great to see what else you can do. Phelps has already entered the remaining Grand Prix meets in Charlotte, N.C., in May and Santa Clara, Calif., in June, although Bowman said no decision has been made on whether he will compete. Depending on his early results, Phelps could compete in the U.S. National Championships in August in Irvine, Calif., where teams will be selected for the 2015 world championships. I wouldnt say its 100 percent on the radar, Bowman said. After Mesa, were going to sit down and talk about it.

Hunter Roessler won the triple jump with a distance of 44-feet 10-inches and was third in the high jump with a leap of 5-10. Dylan Kraus finished third in the 400 in 53.49. Kaitlyn Thompson placed fourth in the 1,600-meter run in 5:37.16. The Chronicleregrets the omissions. Thursdays final will have earned it.2A-3 outlookNo one likes looking past their next game, particularly during tournament time. But considering Seven Rivers Christian played Palatka Peniel Baptist twice and won both handily, 18-1 and 10-1, it doesnt seem like too big a gamble to assume the 14-4 Warriors will prevail in Thursdays district title game in Palatka. They have three players with more than 30 runs batted in and seven who are in double figures in that department. Five of their starters are batting better than .400 and eight have scored more than 10 runs. The pitching/catching battery of Delaney Byers, an eighth-grader, and Alexis King, a sophomore, has been outstanding, offensively and defensively. Byers is batting .695 with seven doubles, two triples, three home runs and 40 RBI; King is hitting .600 with eight doubles, a triple, five homers and 37 RBI. On the mound, Byers is 7-2 with a 3.11 earned run average and 41 strikeouts in 45 innings. Combine her with Tessa Kacer, one of the teams junior captains who is also 7-2 with a 3.30 ERA and 56 strikeouts in 53 innings, and this team has the components to go a long way in the playoffs. But as coach Gary Dreyer would insist, dont tell them that. He has consistently preached the take it a game at a time theory and with his extremely youthful team (no seniors and only three juniors on the roster) that seems like good advice. Perhaps remembering this will help: The Warriors will only go as far as their pitching and defense carries them. Theyll score their runs, but they cannot afford to give runs away. This is a young and talented group that could surprise quite a few of its 2A competitors. SOFTBALLContinued from Page B1 and scored on a single by Evan Longoria. The outcome, however, was decided long before that. Wieters gave the Orioles a 1-0 lead with a two-out RBI single in the first inning, and Baltimore added three runs in the second. Hardy doubled and Ryan Flaherty sliced an RBI single past the drawnin infield before Nelson Cruz and Chris Davis delivered run-scoring doubles. Doubles by Wieters and Hardy, followed by Steve Lombardozzis RBI single, made it 6-0 in the third. Singles by Wieters, Hardy and Flaherty gave the Orioles a 7-0 cushion in the fifth. The seven runs were more than the Orioles scored in 11 of their previous 12 games. RAYSContinued from Page B1 Rays recall RHP Boxberger, option LHP BeliveauBALTIMORE The Tampa Bay Rays have optioned left-hander Jeff Beliveau to Triple-A Durham and recalled righthander Brad Boxberger from their top minor league club. The moves were announced Monday before the Rays faced the Orioles. Beliveau was recalled on Sunday to replace right-hander Alex Cobb, who put on the 15-day disabled list with a left oblique strain. Beliveau pitched a scoreless inning against Cincinnati, his second appearance of the season. Obtained during the offseason in a January trade with San Diego, Boxberger had a 1.29 ERA in six spring training games with Tampa Bay. He was 1-0 with a 1.35 ERA in four games with Durham. The 25-year-old pitched in 18 games with the Padres last season.Kentuckys Cauley-Stein returns for junior seasonLEXINGTON, Ky. Kentucky has announced that 7-foot center Willie CauleyStein will return for his junior season. Cauley-Stein missed the final three games of the Wildcats run to the NCAA championship game after sustaining a left ankle injury in the Midwest Region semifinal against Louisville. He had been projected as a possible top-15 NBA draft pick but said in a statement Monday he wanted to return and move closer to earning his degree. He also wants to help Kentucky make another run at a title after watching from the bench. Said Cauley-Stein said being at the Final Four was special, but not being able to help my teammates on the floor was tough. His 106 blocks tied for second-most in a season for Kentucky and he earned allSoutheastern Conference defensive team honors.Dukes Parker to decide Wednesday on going proOKLAHOMA CITY Jabari Parker says he plans to set up an appointment with Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski when he returns to Durham, N.C., on Tuesday and he will decide Wednesday whether to declare for the NBA draft or return to college for his sophomore year. Parker was in Oklahoma City to accept the Wayman Tisdale Award as college basketballs top freshman. He said his decision will be based on where he can grow the most. Parker said hell talk with Coach K and lay out my options, but Im just really glad I get the best of both worlds. Parker was the highest-scoring freshman in Duke history (19.1 per game) and is the first freshman to lead the Blue Devils in scoring and rebounding.Michigan States Gary Harris entering NBA draftMichigan State shooting guard Gary Harris is entering the NBA draft as a sophomore. Harris averaged a team-high 16.7 points last season, helping his team win 29 games, including the Big Ten tournament championship. He shot 43 percent overall and made 81 of 230 3-point shots. The native of Fishers, Ind., was an Associated Press All-America honorable mention and All-Big Ten player. Last season, Harris became the first player in Michigan State history to be named Big Ten freshman of the year and to be voted MVP by his teammates. The school made the announcement on Monday.Clemson dismisses QB Kelly after argumentCLEMSON, S.C. Clemson quarterback Chad Kelly has been dismissed from the team two days after he was benched for the second half of the spring game for disagreeing with coaches over whether to go for it on fourth down. Coach Dabo Swinney said Monday that Kelly was kicked off the team for conduct detrimental to the program. Swinney said Kelly had a pattern of poor behavior. Swinneys statement did not give any details, but did wish Kelly well. Kelly is the nephew of former Buffalo Bills star Jim Kelly. The sophomore was expected to compete with senior Cole Stoudt and freshman Deshaun Watson to replace Tajh Boyd behind center this fall. Kelly played in five games in 2013, completing 10 of 17 passes for 58 yards and running 16 times for 117 yards.Lawyer involved in MiamiNCAA case charged by BarCORAL GABLES An attorney who was paid by the NCAA during its investigation of Miami athletics now faces charges from the Florida Bar, alleging a wide range of ethics violations occurred during that arrangement. Maria Elena Perez was the attorney for Nevin Shapiro, the convicted Ponzi scheme architect and former Hurricanes booster who was at the center of the NCAA probe. Perez used subpoena power to interview witnesses for a bankruptcy investigation, but the NCAA tried to use part of the testimony she gleaned in those interviews as part of its case against Miami. The NCAA does not have subpoena power. The Bar said Perez denied working for the NCAA, and broke rules including ones regarding billing and confidentiality practices. Perez declined comment.From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

With one game left in the regular season, the Bulls are fourth in the Eastern Conference playoff race and looking at a first-round matchup with Brooklyn. To catch Toronto and finish third, the Bulls would need to win the season finale at Charlotte on Wednesday and have the Raptors lose at New York Kyle OQuinn led Orlando with 20 points on 9-for-11 shooting, and Andrew Nicholson added 19. Rookie Victor Oladipo was limited to 10 points after scoring a career-high 35 points against the Bulls earlier in the season. Jimmer Fredette had 17 points for Chicago.Wizards 114, Heat 93WASHINGTON The Miami Heat opted for rest for LeBron James and Chris Bosh over the pursuit of the Eastern Conferences top seed, and the Washington Wizards capitalized in a 114-93 breeze of a game that clinched the No. 1 seed for the Indiana Pacers. Trevor Ariza scored 25 points for the Wizards, who shot 59 percent and made 14 3-pointers to move 1 1/2 games ahead of the Charlotte Bobcats in the race for the Easts No. 6 seed. Washington would secure sixth place if the Bobcats lost at Atlanta later Monday, thus avoiding the Heat in the first round of the playoffs. Michael Beasley scored 18 points for the Heat, and Toney Douglas had 14 for the twotime defending champs, who will be the No. 2 seed when the playoffs begin this weekend.Raptors 110, Bucks 100TORONTO Greivis Vasquez scored 25 points, Kyle Lowry had 24 and the Toronto Raptors set a franchise record with their 48th win, beating the Milwaukee Bucks 110-100. Jonas Valanciunas had 14 points and 13 rebounds and Tyler Hansbrough had 12 points and 11 rebounds as the Raptors won for the sixth time in seven games and completed the first season sweep of Milwaukee in franchise history. Ramon Sessions scored 21 points, Jeff Adrien had 19 points and Brandon Knight 18 as the Bucks lost their 14th straight road game, matching a record for futility set in the 2004-05 season.76ers 113, Celtics 108PHILADELPHIA Michael Carter-Williams had 21 points and 14 rebounds, Tony Wroten scored 20 points, and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Boston Celtics 113-108.

Rajon Rondo finished with eight points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds.Bobcats 95, Hawks 93ATLANTA Chris Douglas-Roberts dribbled into the lane and sank a short jumper as time expired, and the Charlotte Bobcats overcame a 15-point deficit in the final period to beat the Atlanta Hawks 95-93.

Shelvin Mack and Williams each had 13.Rockets 104, Spurs 98HOUSTON Chandler Parsons scored 21 points and Dwight Howard and Terrence Jones added 20 apiece to lift the Houston Rockets to a 104-98 win over the San Antonio Spurs.

Kevin Durant scored 25 for the Thunder, who have lost two straight and wont lock up the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference playoffs without at least one more win or a Los Angeles Clippers loss. Oklahoma City played without Russell Westbrook, who was given the night off to rest. Quest for the Stanley Cup A look at 10 things to watch in the NHL playoffs Associated PressHeres a look at 10 things to watch when the NHL playoffs begin Wednesday with a new format, some stars returning from injuries and renewed rivalries: NEW LOOK: Forget what you knew about how teams matched up in the playoffs. When the league went from having six divisions to four this season as part of its realignment, the plan for postseason was also altered. Two wild cards were added in each conference and at least half the first-round series were guaranteed to have teams face division opponents. IN THE EAST: The Atlantic Division-winning and defending Eastern Conference champion Boston Bruins will face the wild card Detroit Red Wings in the opening round. The team that advances will face the divisions second place Tampa Bay Lightning or third place Montreal Canadiens. The Metropolitan Division-champion Pittsburgh Penguins will play the wild card Columbus Blue Jackets and the winner moves on to face the divisions second or third-place teams, the New York Rangers or Philadelphia Flyers. OUT WEST: The Pacific Division-champion Anaheim Ducks are set to match up with the wild card Dallas Stars, the fifth team in from the Central, in the only interdivision series. The winner will play the Pacifics second place San Jose Sharks or Los Angeles Kings. The Central champion Colorado Avalanche face the wild card Minnesota Wild and the team that advances will match up with the divisions secondor third-place teams, the St. Louis Blues or defending Stanley Cup-champion Chicago Blackhawks. ON THE MEND: The Blackhawks expect to have Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane in the lineup when they play at St. Louis on Thursday after each had long layoffs to heal injuries. Kane has been out since hurting his left knee March 19 against the hardhitting Blues. Tampa Bay might have to get to the second round to have goaltender Ben Bishop on the ice. Bishop has been out since last week with an upper-body injury and isnt going to be re-evaluated until early next week. Its unfortunate, not just for our team, but for Ben, Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. Hes had a great run with us this year. Tampa Bay has to hope Anders Lindback, who has played in one playoff game previously, makes the most of his opportunity to play in net. BUCKLE UP: One of the many intriguing matchups in the opening round has the 2012 Stanley Cup champion Kings against the Sharks for the third time in four postseasons. The Kings eliminated the Sharks in Game 7 of the second round last year after being eliminated by them in Game 6 of an opening-round series in 2011. Los Angeles and San Jose have played 22 times the last three years, including the playoffs, and each has won 11 of those games. We figured we were going to see them at some point, Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle said. The Rangers and Flyers, whose arenas are about 100 miles apart, have met many times in the playoffs in the past, but not since 1997 when Philadelphia got past New York in five games and went on to lose in the Stanley Cup finals. PRESIDENTIAL PRIVILEGE: Boston had the best record in the regular season, giving the franchise its first Presidents Trophy since 1990. The Bruins can be pardoned for not being too cocky about their chances because they lost three of four matchups this season against the Red Wings, who are in a 23rd straight postseason. All of the pressure is going to be on them, Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard said. Theyve got to win, were not supposed to. Weve got to make it as hard as possible on them. CROSBYS CHANCE: Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby won the Art Ross Trophy for the first time since he really was a kid, scoring a league-high 120 points during the 2006-07 season as a 19-year-old, second-year pro. Crosby crushed the competition in scoring, reaching the 100-point mark for the fifth time in his career to finish 17 points ahead of Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf. Theres so much more to his game than just scoring, but it is pretty amazing to see, Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma said. WELCOME BACK: The Stars are in the playoffs for the first time since 2008. Columbus is still playing for just the second time in its 13-season history and first since 2009. The Avalanche are playing among the leagues best after three years of missing the postseason. The Lightning are back in the 16-team tournament for the first time since 2011. Dallas forward Tyler Seguin was in the postseason the previous three years in Boston, and hes got advice to share with teammates: A big thing with the playoffs is, youve got to hate the other team. SELANNES SWAN SONG: Ducks star Teemu Selanne plans to retire after this season, ending a 21season run that includes a Stanley Cup in 2006. The 43year-old Finnish Flash averaged less than half a point per game for the first time in a decade. Selanne has become a supporting player on a talented team that should advance for the first time since 2009. WOE CANADA: The hockey-crazed country north of the U.S. border is represented by only one team Montreal in the playoffs. It has been 41 years since that was true and back then, the Scotty Bowman-led Canadiens won one of their NHLrecord 23 championships.NHL PlayoffsFIRST ROUND (Best-of-7) Wednesday, April 16 Montreal at Tampa Bay, 7 p.m. Columbus at Pittsburgh, 7:30 p.m. Dallas at Anaheim, 10 p.m. Thursday, April 17 Philadelphia at N.Y.

Barry Trotz, the NHLs longest tenured head coach with one team, will not be back for a 16th season with the Nashville Predators. The Predators announced Monday they have told Trotz his contract will not be renewed and that they are starting a search for a new coach immediately. Trotz has been the only coach for this former expansion franchise, and he coached 1,196 games with Nashville. He is the only NHL coach to take his team to the playoffs in seven of eight seasons before missing the playoffs the past two seasons.From wire reports Associated PressTampa Bay head coach Jon Cooper, top, talks with defenseman Andrej Sustr during a timeout Sunday against the Washington Capitals in Washington. Cooper has led the Lightning into the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time since 2011, but the team may have to hit the ice without injured goaltender Ben Bishop.

In todays hectic world, we unfortunately grow up to believe that less is not more, bigger is better. So we push ourselves to do and to achieve the maximum results in our lives. This stress causes blood chemistry changes that increases abdominal fat, raises blood pressure, affects our hormone levels and hastens the signs of aging. Muscles tighten and tension headaches may result. These are just a few of the harmful effects of stress. Now, what can be done about it?Hormone levels can be tested and can be improved naturally. The tests cover cortisol, testosterone, estrogen and progesterone. The superior method of hormone testing is salivary, best tested by those in the medical profession. A licensed medical technologist is able to do blood testing in-office, and many prefer it due to its reliability and affordability. Correcting hormone imbalance decreases anxiety and depression caused by low testosterone and progesterone levels. Chiropractic and massage work together to reduce muscle tension and headaches or neck pain related to stress. The better posture that results from spinal correction through adjustments and rehabilitative exercise allows more room for the internal organs to function, and a person breathes easier. Standing taller with your chin up, ready to face the world, gives you better self-esteem as well. Exercise also lowers anxiety as well, so move your body! Caring less about how the world views us, reduces the pressure to obtain more money and prestige. By focusing on appreciation for what we have, we will gain more acceptances, less stress and better health to enjoy our lives and all the blessings in it.Dr. Cheryl McFarland-Bryant maintains an active Florida Medical Technologist license.

Q:I read your column in theChronicleeach time and find it most helpful and interesting. I am 81 years old and have all my own teeth, except that a few are capped and I have some fillings. I go to the dentist two times a year and have my check up and X-rays. The last two times I went, the lady who does the cleaning told me I should have a perio scaling and root planning done. She said it was needed to keep my teeth in order. It was her, not the dentist, that made a strong case for it and also gave an estimate of about $660.00. I never read anything on this in your column unless I missed it. What is your advice on this? I do not like to go into something like this at my age and also with TMJ issues in my jaws. A: Maybe you could address this in one of your next columns. Thank you for your help. This is a great question even though I wish you did not have to go through the thought of what you should do. As you probably realize, it is impossible for me to give you the answer to your dilemma. I will, however, touch on a few things that seem to come up often in regards to situations like yours. In fact, just recently, there was a column that dealt with a similar issue as yours. It is unfortunate, but it is happening more often lately. I, too, am surprised by the fact that this was recommended to you. Due to your age, the fact that you have all of your teeth, have few restorations and have been to the dentist regularly, one would figure that genetics has been on your side regarding your dental health. I have said this in previous columns if your gut is telling you something is not right, follow you gut. This would be a good time for a discussion with the dentist taking care of you in order to help you understand the situation. If things make sense and you have a good feeling, you might want to proceed. If things do not seem to add up, you might ask for your records so you can seek out a second opinion. Be sure to get your Xrays, whether you take them physically or you have them sent to the dentist you choose for the second opinion. Be careful whom you choose for this opinion. If a specialist is available, that might be a good place to start. Remember what I have said in the past. Second opinions can lead to third and even forth ones. Go with logic and your gut. To follow is a true story regarding a once young patient of mine. It came to mind when I read this question. I happen to love going for my ice coffee at Dunkin Donuts in the morning. One particular morning, about a month ago, I met the father of one of my younger patients from many years ago. This patient always wanted to be a dentist, so when he was in high school, he shadowed me for a few weeks. It turns out he has since graduated dental school and works in Tampa. His father expressed some of his sons disappointment with where he was working. He used words that he could only know if he had a conversation with a dentist and listened carefully. Essentially, his son was fed up being told of goals that needed to be met and services that needed to be sold, even if things were not completely necessary. Yep, I could not believe what I heard. He said that his son was done working in a corporate environment where patient care is second to the numbers. I have said this before and I will say it again. I am saddened that this is where a portion of my profession has ended up. Know that private offices are not immune from this sort of behavior, as well. But above all, please know that this is by far not an across-the-board issue. In fact, most dentists put patient care above all. I hope this has helped you.Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S.

Today, we will complete our look at cancer of the uterus. Again, cancer of the uterus is usually seen in postmenopausal patients, but can occasionally be seen in women prior to menopause. The most common symptoms leading to a diagnosis of uterine cancer are postmenopausal vaginal bleeding or of irregular vaginal bleeding. Irregular bleeding in women prior to menopause is often ignored and considered to be just an irregular cycle by many women. It should, however, be evaluated by a physician. Vaginal bleeding after menopause is not a normal finding, and the older the patient is, the more likely the bleeding is related to a uterine cancer. Women may also complain of pelvic pain or another irregular discharge. Any of the above symptoms should be discussed with a physician as soon as possible and not be ignored. At the present time, there is not a good screening tool available for the early detection of uterine cancer. When a woman presents with irregular vaginal bleeding, pain or other symptoms that make a physician suspicious, a biopsy of the endometrium is obtained. The most common biopsy procedure utilized is the D&C (dilatation and curettage) of the endometrium. This is a reliable and accurate test to evaluate for cancer or hyperplasia of the endometrial lining. Hyperplasia is basically an overgrowth of the lining of the uterus, and if left untreated, it can progress to cancer. For cancers of the endometrium, the standard management consists of a total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, abbreviated TAH-BSO. The total hysterectomy consists of removal of the uterus and the salpingo-oophorectomy is removal of the ovaries and fallopian tube bilaterally. Surgery alone can be utilized in the early stage cancers without any findings which might suggest a high risk of recurrence. Certain pathologic findings, such as poorly differentiated tumors that may be more aggressive, deep invasion of the tumor into the outer muscular layer of the uterus or tumor spread to pelvic lymph nodes, have been shown to increase the risk of recurrence of the cancer if surgery alone is utilized. In these patients, with what we call poor prognostic factors, radiation therapy is generally added to the treatment regime about one month after surgery. In very advanced cancers with evidence of spread beyond the pelvis, chemotherapy and hormonal therapy may be added to the treatment regimen. Occasionally, for medical reasons, patients cannot undergo surgery. In this instance, radiation therapy alone is utilized in the treatment of these patients with good success. Five-year survival rates are about 70 percent with radiation therapy alone. This is, however, reserved for patients who cannot safely undergo a hysterectomy. The early detection and treatment of cancers of the uterus leads to a very high rate of cure. As always, notify your doctor of any change or irregularity early, so that the diagnosis can be made quickly and treatment may be started. Next week, we will discuss cervical cancer.Dr. Bennett is a board-certified radiation oncologist. If you have any suggestions for topics, or have any questions, contact him at 522 N.

Approximately, 300,000 women get this diagnosis every year in the United States alone, some with invasive disease and some with in situ disease. In breast cancer, one of the important parameters is whether the cancer is hormone sensitive or not. This is measured by checking Estrogen and Progesterone Receptor (ER and PR) on cancerous tissue. Hormone-sensitive tumors respond to different hormonal drugs like Tamoxifen, Letrozole, Anastrozole, etc. Lots of research is done in breast cancer, and we need to keep doing more and more research to win the war against cancer. There is an annual meeting of cancer research specialists in the United States for an organization called the American Association for Cancer Research or AACR. This year it is held in San Diego. In a plenary session of the meeting, a promising study was presented. A novel drug for breast cancer, palbociclib (Pfizer), has shown a significant clinical benefit in a subgroup of women with advanced breast cancer in a phase 2 trial, known as PALOMA-1. This is a novel drug with completely new mechanism of action. In the PALOMA-1 trial, as a first-line treatment in patients with hormone-receptorpositive metastatic breast cancer, progression-free survival, the primary end point of the study, was significantly better with palbociclib plus letrozole than with letrozole alone (20.2 vs. 10.2 months). These were all stage 4 patients meaning by their cancer had spread outside the breast to the lung, liver, bone, etc. These results confirm the preclinical observations made with palbociclib in breast cancer models, explained Dr. Richard S. Finn, associate professor of medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles. In addition, a beneficial effect was consistently observed in the overall response rate and even overall survival is likely to improve. The safety profile is acceptable and manageable. No new or unexpected adverse events occurred during the trial. The most common adverse events in the combination arm were neutropenia, leukopenia, fatigue and anemia. There is a big caveat we must realize that this is an early study, it is only phase 2. The results definitely need to be confirmed in a well-planned phase 3 trial where this drug is tested preferably in a placebocontrolled environment. Early reports are not always confirmed in this kind of trial. Until that kind of trial is done, this is exciting early news with great potential but it is not yet ready for prime time. Advances like this will eventually help us win the war against cancer. We have to keep trying. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

SUPPORTContinued from Page C4 MONTHLY SUPPORT GROUPS Associated PressMIAMI Tied to an unpopular president and his signature health care law, Democrats in the nations largest swing state see medical marijuana as a potential antidote to political malaise in this years midterm elections. Party operatives are pushing a constitutional amendment that would make Florida the first state in the South to legalize some pot use. Polls show the measure has widespread public support, and its particularly popular among young voters a critical part of the Democratic coalition with historically weak turnout in non-presidential election years. I wish that it didnt take medical marijuana on the ballot to motivate our young voters, said Ana Cruz, former executive director of the Florida Democratic Party. But listen, well take it any way we can get it. Activists are also gathering signatures for medical marijuana initiatives in Arkansas, where Democrats are fighting to retain the governorship and a U.S. Senate seat, and Ohio, where the party is trying to oust GOP Gov. John Kasich. But those petition drives face significant organizational hurdles. The political world likely will be focused on Florida in November for clues about the turnout potential among young voters of pot on the ballot. At stake is the governors office, as well as a handful of competitive House seats. In 2012, both Washington and Colorado saw spikes in youth turnout when marijuana initiatives were on the ballot. This year, Florida could be a critical test case for whether those increases were an anomaly or the start of a trend in advance of the presidential election in 2016, when activists plan to launch legalization campaigns in at least six states, including battleground Nevada. Its a smart move on the Democrats part, said David Flaherty, a Colorado-based GOP pollster. Its going to help them, no doubt about it. Florida Republicans argue that Democrats do not have a clear-cut advantage on medical pot, with public polls showing an overwhelming majority of GOP voters supporting it. They also say its unlikely to excite young voters in the way that legalization campaigns did in Colorado and Washington, where pot was sanctioned for recreational use along the lines of alcohol, or become part of a divisive culture war that could drive turnout. Nevertheless, the marijuana initiative may be one bright spot for Democrats in an election year that could be grim for the party. President Barack Obama remains unpopular, and Republicans are trying to make the elections a referendum on his health care law. Gov. Rick Scott is making the health care overhaul a central issue in the governors race and outside conservative groups, such as Americans for Prosperity, are funding a barrage of negative ads against Democrats in a handful of swing-voting House districts. I would rather have it on the ballot than not, said Steve Schale, a Democratic consultant who managed Obamas Florida campaign in 2008. It could have a marginal impact, and a marginal impact in Florida could be the difference between winning and losing. A Republican victory in a special House election last month in Florida underscored the Democrats turnout problem. The St. Petersburg-area district has 2.4 percent more registered Republicans than Democrats, but GOP voters outnumbered Democrats by 8 percentage points among those who cast ballots. Some Republicans paint the medical marijuana initiative as a ploy by Democrats to help former Gov. Charlie Crist, a Republican turned Democrat, reclaim the governorship. Crist supports the measure, saying its an issue of compassion. Scott opposes it, citing his brothers struggles with substance abuse. The marijuana campaigns chief financier is John Morgan, an Orlando trial lawyer and major Democratic donor whose firm employs Crist. Morgan insists the effort is personal, not political; he says marijuana eased the suffering of his father, who died of esophageal cancer, and his brother, who is a quadriplegic. Democrats say the medical pot measure could help counter Republican energy by motivating young and independent voters. According to a national survey sponsored by George Washington University last month, nearly 40 percent of likely voters said they would be much more likely to vote if a legalization measure was on the ballot, with another 30 percent saying they would be somewhat more likely to vote. Organizers of the medical marijuana effort plan to raise and spend $10 million on their campaign, with much of the money devoted to a turnout operation aimed at registering voters to cast absentee ballots. We want to be able to have our stereotypical, lazy pothead voters to be able to vote from their couch, said Ben Pollara, a Democratic fundraiser and campaign manager for the United for Care group, which also plans to get voters to the polls on Election Day. Medical pot measure could boost Fla. Democrats Associated PressA medical marijuana plant sits at a dispensary in Seattle. Tied to an unpopular president and his signature health care law, Democrats in the nations largest swing-state see the prospect of legal medical marijuana as a rare source of hope and high voter turnout in this years midterm elections.

She wasnt physically injured, but, nearly one year later, the 34-year-old Charlestown photographer says she hasnt fully recovered. Once-routine things still trigger anxiety attacks, flashbacks and waves of overwhelming emotion. At a Bon Jovi concert in July, ONeil says she went into full panic when the Gillette Stadium crowd roared and the lights went out. Summoned for jury selection recently, she was overcome by an anxiety attack that left her shaking and crying on a courtroom bench before she was excused. Shes among hundreds of people who have taken advantage of a range of programs offered free of charge at Boston-area hospitals for those affected by last years bombings, which killed three people and injured more than 260 on April 15, 2013. Sometimes its just this feeling in my chest, where my heart is beating fast, she said. But other times its so intense it can feel like Im dying. I cant catch my breath and my body goes numb and its hard to pull out of it. Its completely exhausting. It wasnt always this way. ONeil says she wasnt much of a crier before. She never suffered from anxiety or panic attacks. She was comfortable in social situations. Im more afraid now than I ever was before, ONeil says. I was a completely different person a year ago. ONeil spent a few months in private counseling before finding the support groups, individual therapy and other mental health services at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Some of those services were covered through an initiative funded in part by the states Office for Victim Assistance. The city is also offering free counseling sessions, both in person and over the phone, to help residents cope with the anniversary. Cynthia Kennedy, a clinician at Beth Israel, says the significant psychological trauma suffered by those in the vicinity of the twin blasts is too often overlooked. Part of the problem, mental health professionals suggest, is how the public and media interpret Boston Strong, the phrase that became the citys rallying cry after the bombings. Some people are not feeling justified with their own struggles, or they are feeling guilty with their reaction, Kennedy said. It leaves people feeling like, What is wrong with me? Why cant I just get over it? ONeil says she started participating in programs at Beth Israel in August. But she became frustrated at what she felt was a lack of progress early on. Over the holidays, she took a break from the programs. Its isolating. Even the people closest to you dont understand it. That you dont really have control over it, ONeil said. Kennedy says ONeils experience is typical. Support group members at Beth Israel, who range from marathon runners to first responders, volunteers and bystanders, report having trouble adjusting to public settings, being in large crowds and riding public transit. Kennedy says the support groups help people understand that these reactions are normal after traumatic events. In February, ONeil resumed her individual counseling sessions at the hospital and started taking part in a Buddhist meditation group, also provided by Beth Israel. She knows it will be a gradual process. Those of us there that day have a new reality, ONeil says. A year ago, if someone asked me what the chances were that I would witness a terrorist attack, I would have said the chance was slim. Now Ive been that statistic. As the bombing anniversary and next marathon near, mental health professionals say their programs have shifted focus to how people will handle those two critical milestones. Kennedy says support group members are considering a variety of approaches. Some will attend the race. Others will be far away from Boston. Still others, she said, have talked about doing something locally as a group, like bowling. ONeil says her plans are still up in the air. Shes determined to attend a public ceremony marking the bombing anniversary. The actual marathon on April 21 is another matter. I feel torn. I want so badly to be there. ... The marathon is an important day for me. I have always loved it, ONeil says. I worry the crowd and all of the aspects of the race could trigger anxiety and flashbacks that will make it difficult. Marathon bystanders deal with mental health Associated PressMedical workers aid injured people near the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon following two bomb explosions in Boston. In the course of a year, limbs have been replaced, psyches soothed, the wounds sustained in a moment at the marathons finish line have at least begun to heal. At the same time, a city shaken by an act of terrorism has returned to its usual rhythms sadder, but some say stronger, as well.

NEWS NOTES Tempe Brown, former nightclub entertainer who had her own touring band, brought her inspiring transformation story to the First Baptist Church Victory Hall for the Womens Ministry All That Jazz event, which annually welcomes women of all faiths to attend. After coming to the faith while reading a Gideon Bible in a hotel room during one of her tours, she left the music business behind and began a life of full-time Christian service, traveling year-round speaking for various organizations and Gideons International. She leads ladies retreats and conferences nationwide. She also is the Stonecroft Regional Speaker Trainer for South Carolina where she presides. (Stonecroft Ministries is the parent organization of our local Christian Womens group that meets September through May for a luncheon at the Chet Cole Life Enrichment Center.) After welcoming the 240 guests for the eighth presentation, Pat Van Ness, emcee, spoke briefly about the Jazz Ages freedom of thought and action which began in the 1920s, illustrating it with a toothpick where we can pick out the best qualities to emulate, a rubber band for flexibility and stretch to our full potential, a Band-Aid to cover up those wounds and hurts from others, an eraser for our mistakes, a candy kiss for the love we all need in all situations we experience and a pencil to list all of a our blessings. The invocation was given by Pastor Tim Lantzy and the dinner was provided by Robert and Jenifer Snider and the dinner crew, coordinated by Brenda Kaub. The First Baptist Mens Group volunteered as servers and the Sewing Seeds of Love group made the prayer quilt for the speaker. Patsy Jenkins was the coordinator of the 75 door prizes that were donated, many of which were created by members of the church. Beneath a huge banner, Jazz Up Your Life, and on a stage filled with Jazz Age memorabilia, Tempe Brown began with three songs: It Had To Be You from the s and the movie Casablanca, At Last, a hit for Etta James from the s, and Georgia, made famous by Ray Charles. A former illustrator for childrens books, she remarked that the Bible is the only book, that when you open it, God shows up. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. She traced her amazing transformation from her show business career to full-time Christian service. She shared a heartwarming story of her life as a popular jazz vocalist with her own band touring the countrys nightclubs, the adulation of the fans and yet a longing for fulfillment and a reconciliation with her daughters who had strayed. Illustrating it with a compelling song, Pieces, which describes how Jesus is the perfect fit to the jigsaw puzzle we call life, she told us that being a Christian is having a personal relationship with Jesus and the church and that He is the best news we will ever read. Shandry Hembree, event coordinator, thanked the more than 100 volunteers who were involved with the womens event. The closing prayer was offered by Kathy Lantzy. It was another special gift to the women in our community, lovingly shared by the Womens Ministry of the Crystal River First Baptist Church.Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community.

TUESDAY, APRIL15, 2014 C11CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Dick Gregory, a comedian, social activist and writer, said, I wouldnt mind paying taxes if I knew they were going to a friendly country. On tax day in the United States, lets examine a deal that ought not to be taxing for someone who remembers the bidding. First, though, look at the South hand. West deals and opens one club. After two passes, what should South do? In this balancing seat, the meanings for three of Souths bids change. The first is a oneno-trump overcall. It is no longer strong. Now it is weak, showing 11 to an unappealing 15 points. North then wisely passes, leaving South in one no-trump. How should he plan the play after West leads his fourth-highest club and East puts up the jack? Note that with a strong no-trump, South would double first and hope to rebid one notrump on the next round (if an eight-card major-suit fit was not revealed). Here, that would be easy. But if Wests opening bid were one of a major, South might be forced to rebid two no-trump, which is uncomfortably high. Then, a balancing one-no-trump overcall might contain a poor 16 points. South has only four top tricks. The best chance for the extra tricks lies in diamonds. From the bidding, West is a heavy favorite to hold the ace. So declarer should win the second (or first) club trick in his hand with the ace and lead a low diamond to dummys king. After it wins, he returns a diamond and plays low from his hand. When the ace comes tumbling down, South has seven tricks: two hearts, three diamonds and two clubs.

However, she recently told me about her college days, which included a lot of sex with both men and women, sometimes in groups. She said she really enjoyed it, but it is in the past. I find it difficult to understand why she didnt tell me this long ago, and I wonder where her head is now. How can I trust her to be honest with me and not fall back into her old ways? I mean, if you had a great time at Disneyland, wouldnt you want to go back? Dismayed Dear Dismayed: Not necessarily. Your fiancee didnt tell you this earlier because she didnt think your relationship was solid enough to withstand her confession. Frankly, we dont believe couples need to tell each other every detail about prior relationships. It can poison the well. Partners should know about previous engagements, marriages and children, but other romantic entanglements dont need to be confessed unless they will have an impact down the line. By telling you that she had sex with women and in groups, you are now wondering whether your fiancee is bisexual and will want group sex again. But its not like Disneyland. A lot of college kids engage in rather adventurous sexual escapades because they are experimenting and sampling everything. It doesnt mean she is still interested in any of this, and you arent giving her the opportunity to prove she has outgrown it. Nonetheless, such concerns merit further discussion. Please get into premarital counseling to see whether you can work through this. But we caution you: If her prior life means you will never trust her, we dont recommend marriage. Dear Annie: Every month I take many medications. In the past, when Ive finished one, I tear the label off of the container and throw it into the recycling bag. I think that throwing these out is such a waste. I called the pharmacy and asked whether the containers are returnable, and they told me no. Do you have any idea why they do not reuse these containers? Anonymous Dear Anonymous: We contacted the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and here is what we were told: Reuse of this sort of container is complicated, due to the remaining residues from different medications and the facilities that pharmacies would need to have onsite to be able to safely reuse the containers. Plastic medicine bottles can be recycled, but collection varies greatly throughout the country. Some residential recycling programs collect medicine bottles for recycling, as do some pharmacies and stores. (For example, Whole Foods encourages consumers to bring all No. 5 plastics to their store, which generally includes medicine bottles.) A helpful resource for finding recycling outlets for specific materials is Earth911.com. Dear Annie: Sorry, but your answer to Grinch in Arizona could have been better. She said she and her husband say in advance that they are giving donations to an animal shelter instead of presents, but her stepdaughter keeps giving them gifts. You said they should bring a card from the animal shelter saying the donation had been made in their honor. Giving a donation to Grinchs favorite charity is not a gift to the family. It would be much better to tell the family you are giving donations and ask whether they have a favorite charity. If not, then Grinch could suggest their animal shelter. Cheryl Dear Cheryl: Since this couple made it clear in advance that this was their holiday policy and they wanted no gifts in return, we thought it was acceptable. But many readers agree with you.Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
