City set to break ground on pipelineA.B. SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER This city has involuntarily become the focus in the states efforts to arrest the seemingly out-of-control use of potable water and to conserve what is left. City and state officials are about to break ground on a reclaimed-water pipeline project from Crystal Rivers current spray field to the Duke Energy Complex north of the city. The project is expected to move up to a million gallons of reclaimed water to the complex when it is flowing at 100 percent, said the citys public works director, Dave Burnell. That is a million gallons per day Duke would not have to pump out of the aquifer, Burnell added. Conversely, officials with the Southwest Florida Water Management District drew the ire of residents in 2012 when the agency granted a $50 groundwater-withdrawal permit to Heatherwood Investments LLC of Crystal River and Mistletoe LLC of Ocala to withdraw up to 76,700 gallons per day. Average daily use during the highest water use month, or peak month, cannot exceed 153,400. The site of the well is on an old lumber yard at 142 N.E. 11th St. According to the water management district, the companies intend to transport the water for sale to a bottling company, Consolidated Water Group LLC in Ocala. The well will not be metered. The water district insisted at the time and still maintains that all permit holders have to meet the following criteria before a permit is granted: The applicant must show demand, which these companies reportedly met by showing they are going to sell to a bottling company. The applicant must ensure withdrawal will not harm the water resources or the related environment.

Others did it to prove something about their sport, the city or their country. And some were out to prove something to themselves. With the names of the victims scrawled on their bodies or their race bibs, more than 32,000 people crossed the starting line Monday at the Boston Marathon in a powerful show of defiance a year after the deadly bombing. Were marathon runners. We know how to endure, said Dennis Murray, a 62-year-old health care administrator from Atlanta who finished just before the explosions last year and came back to run again. When they try to take our freedom and our democracy, we come back stronger. The two pressure-cooker bombs that went off near the end of the 26.2-mile course last year killed three people and wounded more than 260 in a hellish spectacle of torn limbs, smoke and broken glass. The runners this time hit the streets under extraordinary security that included a battery of surveillance cameras, more than 90 bomb-sniffing dogs and officers posted on roofs. By late afternoon, as runners continued to drag themselves across the finish line more than six hours into the race, state emergency officials reported no security threats, other than some unattended bags. In what some saw as altogether fitting, Meb Keflezighi, a 38-yearold U.S. citizen who came to this country from Eritrea as a boy, became the first American in 31 years to win the mens race. As he was presented with the trophy and laurel wreath, The Star-Spangled Banner echoed over Boylston Street, where the explosions rang out a year ago.

Charlie Dean has no reason to be concerned with the state spending money on a Floral City bypass. So says Department of Transportation Secretary Ananth Prasad, who this month answered Deans letter with one of his own. Prasad said the bypass is so far down the priority list that the state has no funds to even begin the study to determine whether to build or not. Not only that, but the Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization, or TPO, ranked the bypass last on a list of 13 projects for the DOT to consider, behind projects that would widen State Road 200 Charlie Deanstate senator doesnt support bypass. FDOT: No funding for Floral City bypass road PATFAHERTY Staff writerHOMOSASSA The Homosassa Special Water District Board of Commissioners has voted to demolish the old water tower. But the structure will not come down right away. Instead, the board will give residents who want to save the tower time to organize and come up with a plan. Monday afternoon, the fate of the tower attracted an overflow crowd to the district board meeting. Supporters of saving the structure in Old Homosassa have made their case on Facebook. About 20 people addressed the board, most in favor of saving the half-centuryold elevated storage tank. Many described it as a historic landmark, and favored preserving it even if it wasnt operational. Board votes to demolish Homosassa water tower See TOWER/ Page A5 See ROAD/ Page A2 See WATER/ Page A2
than .01 of a foot (which is a little over a tenth of an inch) in drawdown. The applicant must ensure the withdrawal will not negatively impact neighbors because the neighbors were on city water. The water district also added that state statutes continue to guide their permit rules. Crystal River City Manager Andy Houston said Monday as far as he knows the companies desire to withdraw water is going ahead and that they were going through the citys permitting process. Burnell said the companies have agreed to widen Northeast 11th Street between Citrus Avenue and First Street to accommodate bigger trucks and the weight of those trucks. There is nothing we can do really as a city because they went through the state permitting process and were approved, Burnell said. He said the city is currently working on issuing a siteplan permit for a building and landscaping. City officials are now awaiting a drill permit from the water district to conclude the process. Water district officials said water conservation continues to be a priority for the district. As population continues to grow in our state, so will the demand on our water resources, said Jay Hoecker, the water districts water supply specialist Through our cooperative funding initiative, the district collaborates with counties, municipalities and utilities to cost-share water conservation projects and programs. Hoecker said. These include both indoor and outdoor water conservation. Indoor water conservation including the replacement of older high volume plumbing fixtures is a great way to improve water use efficiency. As for outdoor water conservation, an efficient landscape and irrigation system is critical to ensuring the sustainability of this vital resource, he said. The state Department of Environmental Protection has declared April as Water Conservation Month.A2TUESDAY, APRIL22, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL/NATION 000I111 Now Serving Breakfast at Low Introductory Prices!

T he Floridan aquifer system extends 100,000 square miles and includes all of Florida and portions of South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi. Where does all the water come from? T he total recharge to the Floridan Aquifer System during an average year is estimated as 13.9 billion gallons per day, all of which used to flow out through springs. How do humans impact the springs? W ells are functionally the same as springs they are artificial discharge points from the Floridan Aquifer System. Currently, we are pumping an average of about 3.6 billion gallons a day from the system, or one-quarter of the former average spring flow. What is all that water used for? Spring f lows are dependent upon the pressure in the Floridan Aquifer System and decline rapidly as levels decline. A spring will stop flowing when aquifer levels are reduced by as little as 10 to 20 feet. Water levels in the Floridan Aquifer System have already been reduced in many urban areas by 30 to 90 feet. During dry years with reduced rainfall and recharge, the input to the aquifer declines to about 9 billion gallons a day and pumping increases, resulting in an estimated reduction in spring flows of over 40 percent. Harm to a springs ecology occurs at a reduction in flows between 4 and 15 percent. Conclusion: W e are already exceeding the capacity of the Floridan Aquifer System to supply adequate water to maintain springs health. The only way to restore health to these springs is to greatly reduce our reliance on groundwater from the Floridan Aquifer System.

Dean, R-Inverness, wrote a letter late last month to Prasad asking that the state not expend any money on either the proposed Floral City bypass or projects in Sugarmill Woods. Dean said after writing the letter that a planned bypass, connecting Watson Road near Inverness to a location near the Tarawood community south of Floral City, would send too much traffic away from Floral City and hurt the local economy. The immediate problem, he said, is the speed of traffic moving through Floral City on U.S. 41. In his response, Prasad said no money would be spent on building a bypass without a detailed study first. All viable options, including no-build, will be considered throughout the study, Prasads letter reads. Prasad also said the DOT has no projects pending in Sugarmill Woods. Dean was in the middle of an appointment when reached Monday for comment on Prasads letter. It is what it is, Dean said. Commissioner Scott Adams has criticized the proposed bypass because the route came at the suggestion of developer Nachum Kalka, who owns property on about 15 percent of the bypass route. Adams will ask the county commission today to rescind its support of the bypass and remove it from the countys 25-year transportation plan, according to the boards agenda. Adams could not be reached for comment. Kalka, embroiled in a dispute in Sugarmill Woods over extension of Oak Village Boulevard, said in an interview last month that the late Gary Maidhof, who headed up development services for the county, asked him to design a bypass plan through part of the 1,330 acres he owned. Kalka said the idea was to get property owners, such as him, to donate land for the right of way. Even though the road isnt scheduled for construction until 2035, the county commission unanimously supported the route in 2013. Adams says he voted in favor of the route, believing it was only conceptual; he says now the DOT told him the route will be followed when the bypass is designed unless the county offers a different route.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright @chronicleonline.com.

Later in the day Monday, at 2:49 p.m., the time the bombs went off, a moment of silence was observed at the finish line. It was followed by some of the loudest cheers of the day as people whooped, clapped and rang cowbells. Boston Strong the unofficial slogan adopted after the terrorist attack was everywhere as the second-largest field of runners in the 118-year history of the race took part. Many of them were runners who had to abandon the race last year because of the attack. Today, when I got to that point, I said, I have to do some unfinished business, said runner Vicki Schmidt, 52, of Nashville. She added: You cant hold us back. You cant get us down. Boston is magical. This is our place. While Gov. Deval Patrick said there had been no specific threats against the race or the city, police along the route examined backpacks, and runners had to use clear plastic bags for their belongings. More than 100 cameras were installed along the course in Boston, officials said. Runner Scott Weisberg, 44, from Birmingham, Ala., said he had trouble sleeping the night before. With everything that happened last year, I cant stop worrying about it happening again. I know the chances are slim to none, but I cant help having a nervous pit in my stomach, Weisberg said. Race organizers expanded the field from its recent cap of 27,000 to make room for more than 5,000 runners who were still on the course last year at the time of the explosions, for friends and relatives of the victims, and for those who were profoundly impacted by the attack.

The bill would force all but the smallest breweries to buy their own cans and bottles of beer from distributors before selling them to visitors. Those that would be allowed to sell cans and bottles to go wouldnt be large enough to afford the bottling equipment needed to package it, brewers said. That bill is a play by large corporations to add more regulation, more requirements, more stress to small breweries, said Ken Rosenthal, who opened Pair ODice Brewing Company in Clearwater six months ago.

SIDIBE Staff writerA Homosassa man is in custody facing charges of sexually violating and sodomizing a 33-year-old woman with Down syndrome. Patrick Mark Dillard, 46, of West Cyprian Court, was arrested Friday and charged with felony sexual battery on someone older than age 12, with the victim having a mental disability. He was held without bond. The woman told police she was going around the neighborhood looking for someone to help her add minutes to her cellular phone when she knocked on Dillards door. She told investigators she was familiar with Dillard, who she called Mark. Dillard reportedly pulled her into his house then took her to his bedroom where he performed sexual acts despite her protestations. Investigators asked the woman to describe Dillards bedroom and collected rape evidence before going to arrest Dillard. Dillard reportedly denied any sexual activity with the woman and initially said the woman had never been in his house. He soon corrected himself and said the woman had been at his residence 10 years ago. Dillard let investigators enter his bedroom and they concluded the womans description of the room matched with what they observed. Soon after denying the allegations, Dillard allegedly told a patrol deputy, What if I did have sex with her? She is an adult. He was transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352-564-2925 or asidibe @chronicleonline.com. Man faces sexual battery charges Patrick Dillard Suspect allegedly forced woman with Down syndrome to perform sex acts NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESSGordon Jones was 17 when he first stepped on the deck of the USS Texas and 87 when he saw the old lady last, on March 12 at the 100th birthday of the battleship that helped win World War II. Last month, 34 of the remaining 1,176 original crew members were treated to a heros welcome at the USS Texas, which now resides in Houston, Texas. Each one of us got a flag that was flown for one day above the ship in our honor and a piece of steel from the bottom of the ship thats been replaced, Jones said. We also each got a Patriots Medal thanking us for our service. A man from France presented Jones with his medal and told him, Thank you for liberating our country. Jones said, I told him, Well, I hope we didnt tear your country up too bad. He said, You blew a hole in my fathers house. I said, Im sorry about that. Then he said, No it was full of German soldiers! I got a real kick out of that. Jones was also interviewed on a local Houston TV news station. He told the news reporter, Ive missed the old lady, and its great seeing her again. Jones said he was just a few months shy of 17 when he joined the Navy. His first stop as a Seaman First Class ammunitions handler was Normandy, France. We shelled the beach so the troops could land, he said. He chose the Navy because, he explained, I figured when we werent actually fighting wed have a clean bunk to sleep in instead of a wet foxhole. After Normandy, Jones traveled to Iwo Jima and Okinawa. Once the war ended, the Texas was used to make several trips to the Pacific to pick up and bring troops home. We didnt get our welcome home until October after all the guys had already been home, so we felt cheated a little bit, but this reunion more than made up for it, he said. Jones said it was a dream come true for him. I told my son that if I live to make this trip, Ill be satisfied whenever the Lords ready to take me home, he said. It was something I never dreamed would happen the wars been over for so long. The old ship was like a home for a lot of us. Going back to see her again was a great honor and something Ill never forget. Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at352564-2927 or nkennedy@ chronicleonline.com.

PATFAHERTY Staff writerTwo early May events focusing on the financial side of Duke Energy will be flavored by the companys recent environmental woes. Duke will have its annual shareholders meeting Thursday, May 1, in Charlotte, N.C., and the company will release its first quarter 2014 earnings results on Wednesday, May 7. At the annual meeting, Lynn Good, Duke Energy chief executive officer, will provide an overview of the 2013 performance and 2014 objectives. The agenda also includes election of the board of directors and other business. An audio webcast will be available through the investors section of the companys website. Good is expected to discuss the 2013 company goals, which included resolving the future of the Crystal River nuclear plant. Continuing to recognize benefits from the 2012 merger with Progress Energy, the Florida rate settlement and the North Carolina coal ash spill are other likely topics. The company has taken responsibility for the February coal ash spill. But environmental groups are holding an April 30 candlelight vigil at Dukes headquarters to demand the cleanup all its coal ash dump sites and have the company be responsible for the costs. Dukes operating revenues for 2013 were $24.6 billion with a net income of $2.68 billion, for a total shareholder return of 13 percent. Following the release of its first quarter results, the company will host a conference call to discuss Dukes financial performance for the quarter and provide other updates. It will be hosted by Good and Steve Young, executive vice president and chief financial officer. Anticipated topics are the lawsuit with Westinghouse Electric over terminating the Levy County nuclear plant and costs of the coal ash spill. According the filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the spill represented about a $15 million cost for the quarter.

Environmentalists to hold vigil at Duke meeting Associated PressMIAMI The U.S. Supreme Court refused Monday to hear an appeal by Florida Gov. Rick Scott on his 2011 executive order that would have required random drug tests for as many as 85,000 state workers. The ruling lets stand an appeals court decision that Scotts order was too broad. That decision also directed a Miami federal judge to oversee ongoing negotiations between the state and an employee union over which positions could be subjected to random drug tests. The Supreme Courts refusal to hear the appeal follows a similar decision in late December by a federal judge in Orlando who struck down a Florida law requiring applicants for welfare benefits to undergo mandatory drug testing. Scott, a Republican, is also appealing that case. The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, which challenged both drug-testing plans as unconstitutional, said federal courts have clearly rejected blanket mandatory drug testing by the state. Scott issued a statement saying state employees should have the right to work in a safe and drug free environment, just like in any other business. Court declines to hear appeal on drug testing

He also presented more than 430 signatures urging the board to preserve it. Water superintendent David Purnell countered, saying he has received emails from people who want it removed as an eyesore. The board is making a business decision, said Commissioner Laura Sipos, who favored demolition. We are not a historical society; we are here to make a business decision. Commissioner Robert Jeeves agreed the tank was of no use and should come down. Im not sure there is a better symbol of the community than the water tower, Commissioner Jim Bitter said. This is advertising our community. I believe we are responsible for that. Commissioner Dennis Seibert went through the cost figures, saying the estimated cost to keep it would be about $220,000 on the low end, and $15,000 was the fee for the permit for taking it down. He said they will not be able to get anybody to buy it for scrap because it has lead paint on it. Were hoping somebody would step up, he said. Were not historians. I dont want to see the tank taken down, but were running a business. He said the district does have money set aside but will probably have to raise rates next to fix its water lines. The board eventually voted 3-2 to demolish to the tower. Jeeves, Seibert and Sipos were in favor with MacRae and Bitter voting no. Seibert said before they take it down, they will give those who want to save it some time to see if they can come up with a solution.

We asked her to go easy on Him but we suspect that she will immediately point out a few of His minor oversights and, like the good Dutch lady she has always been, begin sorting things out and cleaning things up. Please be warned that things are about to change and minor infractions will probably be recorded and only rarely forgiven. Born June 17, 1918, Lucy had a long life; a long career woman in an age that initially made a career outside the family difficult for a woman. She leaves behind the memories of her childhood in Muskegon Michigan, her influence on art and architecture in Chicago Illinois, her many friends and acquaintances in Beverly Hills, her son, Michael Quinn, her two foster sons, Robert Gibbons and Brian Myers, her sister, Ethel Rasure Sharpe, her grandchildren, Ashlinn and Kevin Quinn, and her two great grandchildren, Keanu and Joaquinn Quinn.

Affordable Care Act falling short of goal Associated PressSACRAMENTO, Calif. The federal health care overhaul has provided coverage for millions of Americans, but it has only chipped away at one of its core goals: to sharply reduce the number of people without insurance. President Barack Obama announced last week that 8 million people have signed up for coverage through new insurance exchanges, but barriers continue to prevent millions of people around the nation from accessing care. Questions of affordability, eligibility, immigrant access and the response from employers and state legislatures obstacles that existed before the Affordable Care Act took effect mean considerable work lies ahead. There are myriad reasons why people remain uncovered. Some are eligible for discounted policies but say they still cant afford their share of exchange plans. Others earn too much for subsidies. Immigrants living in the country illegally are blocked from obtaining care under the law. Dozens of states havent expanded Medicaid. And some employers have reduced staff hours to avoid being mandated to provide care. Before the launch of the Affordable Care Act, about 48 million people, or 15 percent of the population, went without health insurance, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The number of people recently enrolled includes those who switched from previous plans, and its not clear how many previously uninsured people are now covered. The share of adults without insurance shrank from 17.1 percent at the end of last year to 15.6 percent for the first three months of 2014, according to a GallupHealthways Well-Being Index released this month. The decline would translate to about 3.5 million people gaining coverage, according to the study. Health advocates say their work isnt finished. California has made huge progress with the new benefits of the Affordable Care Act, said Anthony Wright, executive director of Health Access California. But theres more to do. For individuals in need of care, high premiums, co-pays and deductibles present challenges that often cant be overcome.

Beulah Billie Toombs faces eviction after her apartment buildings management deemed her noncompliant with its new smoke-free policy, The Cincinnati Enquirerreported. A smoker for about seven decades, she doesnt think she should have to quit to stay in her home. This is my home, and I think you do can do whatever you want to in your home, she said. The management of the low-income senior apartments where she lives announced the smoke-free policy more than a year ago. Residents were allowed one year of smoking with some conditions. When the policy kicked in this year, neighbors reported Toombs smoking. A regular apartment inspection this month found cigarette butts and ashtrays in her unit. A message was left Monday for management of the building, AHEPA 127 apartments. The Enquirerreported that a manager earlier declined to discuss the situation. Toombs daughter Mary Ann Burgoyne said warning letters confused her mother. My mom is getting older, and this is causing her so much stress, said Burgoyne, who said she went to the building manager in hopes of finding a compromise. We just want my mother to be left alone, Burgoyne said. The senior apartments are subsidized by a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development program. A HUD spokesman said there is a strong move toward nonsmoking apartment buildings. Building owners do not like smoking, said HUD spokesman Brian Sullivan. There is the stink, the risk of fire, and you can never get that smell out. Toombs has been looking for a new place and thinks she has one lined up, The Enquirerreported. Soon, she will pack up her belongings, including her ashtrays. A neighbor, Shirley Day, said she doesnt like the smell of smoking. I wish she would quit, Day said of Toombs. I like her, but I love the policy.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, APRIL22, 2014 A7 Call the Chronicle or your advertising representative to reserve your space 563-5592 Graduation 2014 Tell the special graduate in your life how much you care.

TONY JONES/The Cincinnati Enquirer/Associated Press Facing eviction, 89-year-old smoker plans to move Slobbering pooch takes top honors Associated PressDES MOINES, Iowa Lucey is a slobbering 18-month-old pooch whose human family dreams of making her a therapy dog. Winning a pageant before her second birthday should boost the Iowa bulldogs hopes of joining owner Dr. Tiffany Torstenson in the health care industry. Lucey beat out 49 drooling competitors Monday to take this years Beautiful Bulldog pageant, a tongue-in-cheek event designed to kick off the weeklong Drake Relays, an internationally-renowned track and field meet in Des Moines. Shes just very calm and she loves people, Torstenson, of Waukee, Iowa, said. She loves the attention. Torstenson, a breast surgeon at the Mercy Katzmann Breast Center, said she often takes Lucey to work. Luceys demeanor around doctors and patients helped convince her human family that shed make a perfect therapy dog, and she will soon start training to become one. Lucey was certainly a hit with the crowd at Drakes Knapp Center, besting a pair of boys named Lord Nelson and Zuul to capture top honors. Shes is very docile, and she doesnt get really excited, Torstenson said. Every room we go into, shes in that room. She likes to sleep in the bed, and hog the bed. And she loves cheese. Monday marked the 35th anniversary of the Beautiful Bulldog event, which was started in 1979 in an effort to find a real dog to represent the schools mascot, the Bulldogs. The pageant is meant to honor English Bulldogs and all the slovenly traits that have endeared the breed to so many. The event has become so popular in recent years that a lottery was needed to winnow the field from over 100 bulldogs down to 50. Competitors from as far away as South Dakota and Kansas made the trip to Des Moines to see which pup would be voted the prettiest, so to speak. Costumes and props are strongly encouraged, and a dog from Center Point, Iowa named Capone got the crowd going by taking part of his turn on the catwalk on a skateboard. The runner-up, Zuul, was named after a character in the iconic s film Ghostbusters, and he and his dad, Dan Phelps of Marengo, Iowa, wore costumes inspired by the movie. But no one could touch the simple pink tutu and award-winning smile of Lucey, whose reign will last until next years pageant. Lucey received a crown, a cape and a cake for winning the event, and shell be feted at Drake Stadium later this week. Shes good with kids. Shes good with adults. Shes just been a great dog, said Luceys dad, Toby Torstenson. Associated PressTiffany Torstenson, of Waukee, Iowa, kisses her dog Lucey Monday after it was crowned the winner of the 35th annual Drake Relays Beautiful Bulldog Contest in Des Moines, Iowa. The pageant kicks off the Drake Relays festivities at Drake University where a bulldog is the mascot. Beautiful Bulldog pageant kicks off track and field meet

Warmer temperatures lift US economyWASHINGTON Springs thaw is reviving the economy, too. A recent batch of government and business reports show a U.S. economy emerging from winters deep freeze. Economists had expected growth to accelerate in 2014 after two years of slow and steady improvement. But an unusually bitter winter sent factories, hiring and consumer spending into hibernation. Now, as temperatures rise, the economy is regaining momentum. Factories are busier. Consumers are spending more. Banks are making more loans to businesses. Companies have bigger plans to invest in plants and equipment.Court to hear dispute over Internet TV broadcastsWASHINGTON Thirty years after failing to convince the Supreme Court of the threat posed by home video recordings, big U.S. media companies are back and now trying to rein in another technological innovation they say threatens their financial well-being. The battle has moved out of viewers living rooms, where Americans once marveled at their ability to pop a cassette into a recorder and capture their favorite programs or the sporting event they wouldnt be home to see. Now the entertainment conglomerates that own U.S. television networks are waging a legal fight, culminating in Tuesdays Supreme Court argument against a startup business that uses Internet-based technology to give subscribers the ability to watch programs anywhere they can take portable devices.Gauge of US economy up for third straight monthWASHINGTON A measure of the U.S. economys health rose in March for the third consecutive month, a sign of stronger growth after harsh winter weather caused the economys pace to slow. The Conference Board said Monday that its index of leading indicators increased 0.8 percent in March after a 0.5 percent rise in February and modest 0.2 percent gain in January. It was the best showing since November. Both hiring and consumer outlooks have improved, which, along with interest rates, fueled much of the indexs improvement. That offset a negative contribution from building permits. The index looks at a series of different indicators to spot peaks and troughs in economic growth.US union drops appeal of defeat in Volkswagen voteNASHVILLE, Tenn. The United Auto Workers dropped its appeal of a worker vote against unionizing at a Volkswagen plant in Tennessee, a move that the union said should put pressure on Republican politicians to quickly approve incentives the German automaker is seeking to expand its lone U.S. assembly plant. The prolonged fight over labor issues at the Chattanooga facility appeared headed for a lengthy National Labor Relations Board appeal until the UAW announced an hour before a scheduled hearing that it was ending its challenge. The February vote went against the union 712-626. Some Republican lawmakers had blamed the appeal for holding up expansion plans at the plant and the UAW says that perceived obstacle is now out of the way.USDA establishes rural business investment programDES MOINES, Iowa The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Monday a new $150 million program designed to provide investment capital to help small agriculture-related business in rural areas with cash needed to expand. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack announced in Cedar Rapids the formation of the first Rural Business Investment Company, a for-profit firm licensed by the USDA to invest in businesses that otherwise might not have the capital to increase business opportunities.Higher costs pressured businesses in first quarterNEW YORK Rising costs for materials and labor appear to be pressuring businesses, according to a quarterly survey from the National Association for Business Economics. During the first quarter of the year, 31 percent of businesses surveyed reported higher material costs, more than double the 15 percent that saw costs rise in the previous survey. Additionally, 35 percent reported rising wages and salaries at their businesses in the past three months, up from 23 percent in January. Yet those who said they raised the prices they charge in the past three months remained unchanged at 20 percent, according to the latest NABE survey of 72 members, which was conducted between March 18 and April 1.TUESDAY, APRIL22, 2014 A9BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,720 1,760 1,800 1,840 1,880 1,920 OA NDJFM 1,800 1,840 1,880 S&P 500Close: 1,871.89 Change: 7.04 (0.4%) 10 DAYS 15,200 15,600 16,000 16,400 16,800 OA NDJFM 16,000 16,240 16,480 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 16,449.25 Change: 40.71 (0.2%) 10 DAYSAdvanced1906 Declined1193 New Highs103 New Lows13 Vol. (in mil.)2,580 Pvs. Volume3,260 1,518 1,887 1588 1025 66 33 NYSE NASD DOW16459.7816402.0816449.25+40.71+0.25%-0.77% DOW Trans.7690.637616.537686.19+51.77+0.68%+3.86% DOW Util.546.47540.41542.78-0.22-0.04%+10.64% NYSE Comp.10559.8210521.8910559.34+26.51+0.25%+1.53% NASDAQ4121.554081.914121.55+26.03+0.64%-1.32% S&P5001871.891863.181871.89+7.04+0.38%+1.27% S&P4001355.881347.841355.17+3.75+0.28%+0.94% Wilshire 500019908.5619802.9819908.49+76.33+0.38%+1.03% Russell 20001142.391132.221142.31+4.41+0.39%-1.83% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Its all going to be about earnings, because earnings are the driver of the market in the long run. The S&P 500 index rose 7.04 points, or 0.4 percent, to 1,871.89. The index has risen five straight days, its longest streak of gains since October. The Dow Jones industrial average climbed 40.71 points, or 0.3 percent, to 16,449.25. The Nasdaq composite gained 26.03 points, or 0.6 percent, to 4,121.55. Halliburton rose $2.02, or 3 percent, to $62.92 after the company turned a profit in the first quarter following a loss in the same period a year ago. Last year the company set aside money for litigation over the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Hasbro rose $1.05, or 1.9 percent, to $55.66 after its earnings came in higher than investors were expecting, driven by sales of girls toys such as My Little Pony and Nerf Rebelle. Stocks also got a lift from an encouraging economic report. An index designed to predict future economic growth rose in March for the third month in a row, an encouraging sign after harsh winter weather slowed down the U.S. economy. The Conference Board said Monday that its index of leading indicators increased 0.8 percent in March after a 0.5 percent rise in February and a modest 0.2 percent gain in January. The data are suggesting that we will gain economic momentum, said Quincy Krosby, a market strategist at Prudential Financial. There is a sense, more and more, that the economy wont run into another soft patch this year. Reports of a potential merger also boosted the market. Newmont Mining jumped $1.42, or 6 percent, to $24.95 following reports that the mining company was considering a merger with Barrick Gold. The two companies are seeking to cut costs after a slump in metals prices. Stocks have longest rally in six months BusinessBRIEFS From wire reports
OPINION Page A10TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 2014 Drug dealers do cost livesIn todays paper (April 6) there was an editorial by Nat Hentoff about the correctness of the position of Attorney General Eric Holder that there were too many drug dealers in our prisons for the minor offense of selling drugs. Mr. Holder thinks the sentences of drug dealers should be shortened because the crime of selling drugs is nonviolent and because it would save money. Also in the paper, was a very long Associated Press article about the age range of people using heroin, the geographic distribution of such drug users, the debilitating affects of heroin and the difficulty of stopping being a user of heroin. The article described how drugs, and heroin in particular, destroy lives, families and communities. Mr. Holder describes drug selling as a nonviolent crime. However, if the drug dealer delivered the same destruction with fist, club or gun it would be difficult to describe the damage as nonviolent. The only nonviolence involved is if the dealer doesnt try to hurt the arresting officer. If I did to your child, spouse or friend, what the drug dealer does, you would want to see me imprisoned for a long time or something worse. The idea that drug dealers dont hurt anyone is such blatant hypocrisy it is hard to understand how Holder or Hentoff or anyone else can espouse such a point of view. In addition, what is the rate of recidivism among former drug dealers? After all, it is fast, easy money with low initial investment. If you get caught you get free meals and housing, medical care and the equivalent of a paid vacation. So when the dealer hits the streets again why not continue doing what he knows how to do, entice others to try his merchandise? Our esteemed Attorney General Holder thinks we should get them back on the street sooner. Why then not take the same attitude toward child molesters? Isnt turning a child to drugs molestation? Is rape less genteel than converting a nonuser to a user? Should the destroyer of a family be more excusable than the parent who destroys his or her offspring? Have our values really been so corrupted by the thought of saving tax dollars rather than preventing the neophyte from having that first snort that we favor saving the money rather than saving the child? So the drug dealer commits murder in absentia. Obviously, if it is in absentia, he is not really hurting anyone very badly, so lets let him out sooner so he can continue earning his own living selling his products. Hurray for the prosecutorial point of view of our federal government, which favors keeping self-protection weapons out of our hands at the same time they favor putting murderers in absentia back on the street ASAP. Bob Best Crystal RiverRunning against wrong candidateHere we go again. Election campaigns have already started, and the hate-Obama machines are cranked up. Obama wants to destroy the Constitution, but never give specifics. If they are talking about executive orders, President Obama has a long way to go before he comes close to the number of executive orders issued by Reagan or Bush. Vote for me and Ill repeal Obamacare. After 50 attempts to repeal it, the Affordable Health Care Act is gaining more and more support from the people who need health insurance and for whom it was designed. You would think that after 50 failures, it would be obvious that it is not going to happen, but they keep making it the core of their campaigns. The GOP appears appalled at the fact that our debt is growing and blame President Obama for it where was the outrage when Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush each doubled the debt first by out-spending the USSR on building a military, and then for a war based on lies? Congress continues to spend money on weapons produced in their home towns even though the military has said they are not needed or wanted. No one knows who will be running in the next presidential election, but one thing we do know is that President Obama will not be eligible to run again. I cant help but wonder why most Republicans still run against him?Evlyn Skurow Crystal River VICTORIATSCHINKEL Special to the ChronicleI am writing from Tallahassee, where the view through our lakes, rivers and streams is green with algae from the Everglades, where billions are being spent to combat the pollution and waste generated by millions of citizens and farmers, where we just spent more than $200 million to upgrade our sewage treatment plant with the sole purpose of protecting W akulla Springs, a full 20 miles from city hall. We know we are in trouble. Poll after poll, year after year shows that we identify with these resources, we love them, and we are totally reliant on them. Yet we have a House of Representatives and a governor who will spend only enough money, when available and convenient, to try to forestall the collapse of these systems (at least until the next election) and never admit that remediation and permanent protection will only come about with careful and wise regulation. How do I know this? Five remarkable senators, led by Sens. David Simmons, R-Altamonte Springs and Charles Dean, RInverness, all committee chairs, have spent nine months working on springs legislation to protect the birthright we share Floridas first magnitude springs. They have faced the same issues confronting the Indian River Lagoon and the St. Lucie Estuar y. It would not have been easy just to say it: Septic tanks, fertilizer, poor agricultural practices, domestic wastewater plants and over withdrawals are choking out wildlife and souping up our water. So, 11 drafts, a public workshop, meetings galore and a few positive committee votes later, the Senate is poised to address these issues head on in a sensible and well-funded way Despite a box-load of scientific studies and information, the House is holding back, perhaps for a new Speaker who can really kill this discussion properly. I say this because the so-called negotiators on a potential springs bill for the House are representatives of three major and wellfunded industry organizations, who have objected to this effort in writing since October. Finally, in February, catching on that the citizens are demanding action, one of these groups is attempting to look responsible by shortcircuiting action by announcing a private-industry water initiative, apparently to help the new Speakers efforts to gain control of the issue. These individuals are not elected, not visible and are not openly debating anything. The governors office seems to think that septic tanks a major source of this pollution are too hot to handle directly. They prefer to hide behind an unenforceable, open-ended, obscure process that has yet to remove an ounce of nitrogen from one body of water. Although its hard to speak for Mother Nature, I doubt she is impressed by the governors constant message, Well, we are doing more than any other governor has done. Which is not even true.Victoria Tschinkel is the former secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental Regulation.

During his eight years as Crystal Rivers city manager, Houston has been the stolid presence behind the scenes insisting and rightly that the city and its staff do everything by the book, acting deliberately and with due diligence. That pragmatic insistence is a hallmark of Houstons time with the city and one of the qualities that made him such an effective administrator. It seems his philosophy may not survive his tenure. Houstons announcement at the end of March that he would be retiring in July was met with somber congratulations, universal praise for his time as manager and the pervasive sense that it would be very difficult to find another Andy Houston. But despite all the talk of how hard he would be to replace, the city council had its man within two weeks: Public Works Director Dave Burnell, who has been on the job for three years. The decision to fasttrack Burnells appointment to city manager was made absent a search, and apparently without consideration of any other candidates. As a point of comparison, the city council spent more time, money and energy finding a special events coordinator than it did looking for Houstons replacement. (Leslie Bollin, by the way, is doing an excellent job in that position.) Houstons hiring came after an exhaustive search and subsequent to a decade in which Crystal River was averaging about a city manager per year. The city was rewarded for its diligence: Under Houstons guidance, the city made great strides in redevelopment and environmental protection and at a time when the tax base was shrinking and along with staff size. Given the history of the city councils relationships with its managers, given the success of Houstons time at the helm and the process that resulted in his appointment, and given the citys need for vision and stability amid a retrenchment by commercial interests, a long, slow decline in population and the burgeoning establishment of what will be one of the nations premiere ecotourism destinations in Three Sisters Springs, we urge the council to reconsider its haste. Dave Burnell may very well be the best person for the job, but it wont hurt to consider options. THE ISSUE:Crystal River finds new city manager.OUR OPINION:Take time to consider your options.

Maw, MD, MPH Board Certified, Family Medicine Associated PressSAN JOSE, Calif. A 16-year-old boy scrambled over an airport fence, crossed a tarmac and climbed into a jetliners wheel well, then flew for five freezing hours to Hawaii a misadventure that forced authorities to take a hard look at the security system that protects the nations airline fleet. The boy, who lives in Santa Clara, Calif., hopped out of the wheel well of a Boeing 767 on the Maui airport tarmac Sunday. Authorities found the high school student wandering the airport grounds with no identification. He was questioned by the FBI and taken by ambulance to a hospital, where he was found to be unharmed. FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu said the teen did not remember the flight from San Jose. It was not immediately clear how the boy stayed alive in the unpressurized space, where temperatures at cruising altitude can fall well below zero and the air is too thin for humans to stay conscious. An FAA study of stowaways found that some survive by going into a hibernation-like state. On Monday, authorities tried to determine how the boy slipped through multiple layers of security, including wide-ranging video surveillance, German shepherds and Segway-riding police officers. Security footage from the San Jose airport verified that the boy climbed a fence and crossed a runway on Sunday morning to get to Hawaiian Airlines Flight 45, Simon said. That airport, in the heart of Silicon Valley, is surrounded by fences, although many sections do not have barbed wire and could easily be scaled. The boy climbed over during the night, under the cover of darkness, San Jose airport spokeswoman Rosemary Barnes said Monday. Hours later, surveillance video at Kahului Airport showed the boy getting out of the wheel well after landing, according to a statement from Hawaiis Department of Transportation. The video was not released because of the ongoing investigation. Hawaiian Airlines spokeswoman Alison Croyle said airline personnel noticed the boy on the ramp after the flight arrived and immediately notified airport security. Our primary concern now is for the well-being of the boy, who is exceptionally lucky to have survived, Croyle said. Isaac Yeffet, a former head of security for the Israeli airline El Al who now runs his own firm, Yeffet Security Consultants, said the breach shows that U.S. airport security still has weaknesses, despite billions of dollars invested. Shame on us for doing such a terrible job, he said. Perimeters are not well protected. We see it again and again. A congressman who serves on the Homeland Security committee wondered how the teen could have sneaked onto the airfield unnoticed. I have long been concerned about security at our airport perimeters. #Stowaway teen demonstrates vulnerabilities that need to be addressed, tweeted Rep. Eric Swalwell, a Democrat who represents the San Francisco Bay Areas eastern cities and suburbs. Unlike checkpoint security inside the airport, which is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration, airport perimeters are policed by local authorities, as well as federal law enforcement. Airport police were working with the FBI and the TSA to review security. The boy was released to child-protective services in Hawaii and not charged with a crime, Simon said. San Jose police said they will forward the findings of their investigation to the district attorney, who can decide whether to file criminal charges in California. The FAA said 105 stowaways have sneaked aboard 94 flights worldwide since 1947, and about 1 out of 4 survived. But agency studies say the actual numbers are probably higher, as some survivors may have escaped unnoticed, and bodies could fall into the ocean undetected. In August, a 13or 14year-old boy in Nigeria survived a 35-minute trip in the wheel well of a domestic flight after stowing away. Authorities credited the flights short duration and its altitude of about 25,000 feet. Others who hid in wheel wells have died, including a 16-year-old killed aboard a flight from Charlotte, N.C., to Boston in 2010 and a man who fell onto a suburban London street as a flight from Angola began its descent in 2012. An FAA review of highaltitude wheel well survivors said they typically clamber past the main landing gear into a wing recess area next to where the gear retracts. On some aircraft, that space is large enough for two small adults. The FAA found that all wheel-well stowaways will lose consciousness at high altitude from lack of oxygen, and that their freezing bodies go into a state somewhat similar to hibernation. At 38,000 feet the cruising altitude of the Hawaiian Airlines flight the outside air temperature is about minus 85 degrees. That would usually be deadly, but some people survive because their breathing, heart rate and brain activity slow down.

How dangerous are the conditions? Very. At 38,000 feet the cruising altitude of the Hawaiian Airlines flight that the FBI says the 16-year-old took Sunday the outside air temperature is about minus 85 degrees. The air is so thin that a person will pass out because the brain is starved of oxygen. Unlike areas of the cargo hold that are pressurized so that pets can breathe, air in the wheel wells is essentially the same as outside the plane. So how can the human body do it? By entering a state akin to hibernation. Breathing, heart rate and brain activity can continue but at a much slower-than-normal rate. Being younger helps the chances of survival, though surgeons may try to recreate this body state during surgery on older people. Several doctors likened the bodys experience in a wheel well on a long flight to what happens when someone falls under the ice of a frozen pond. They may have no pulse when they are pulled out, but could be revived.Q&A: How airplane stowaways survive

The Riyadh bombings prompted the kingdom to launch a sweeping crackdown on al-Qaida militants, who officials say were behind the synchronized attack. The verdicts reflect a renewed push by Saudi authorities, who have issued several similar verdicts in recent months. World BRIEFS From wire reports US issues warning to Russia Associated PressKIEV, Ukraine Russia has days, not weeks to abide by an international accord aimed at stemming the crisis in Ukraine, the top U.S. diplomat in Kiev warned Monday as Vice President Joe Biden launched a high-profile show of support for the pro-Western Ukrainian government. Russia in turn accused authorities in Kiev of flagrantly violating the pact and declared their actions would not stand. Biden, the highestranking American official to visit Ukraine during its conflict with Russia, planned to meet with government officials in the capital of Kiev Tuesday. Bidens trip comes days after the U.S., Russia, Ukraine and Europe signed an agreement in Geneva calling for Moscow to use its influence to get pro-Russian forces to leave the numerous government buildings they now occupy in cites throughout eastern Ukraine. The U.S. asserted on Monday that publicly available photographs from Twitter and other media show that some of the troops in eastern Ukraine are Russian special forces, and the U.S. said the photos support its case that Moscow is using its military to stir unrest in Ukraine. There was no way to immediately verify the photographs, which were either taken from the Internet or given to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe last week by Ukraine diplomats. In Moscow, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov rejected charges that Moscow was behind the troubles in eastern Ukraine and failing to live up to the Geneva agreement. Before putting forth ultimatums to us, demanding fulfillment of something within two-three days or otherwise be threatened with sanctions, we would urgently call on our American partners to fully recognize responsibility for those whom they brought to power and whom they are trying to shield, closing their eyes to the outrages created by this regime and by the fighters on whom this regime leans, Lavrov told a news conference. Rethinking deportation Associated PressImmigrants suspected of being in the country illegally sit in a group April 17 after U.S. Border Patrol agents detained at least 80 immigrants whod been living in a makeshift encampment in suburban McAllen, Texas. Associated PressWASHINGTON Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson is weighing limiting deportations of immigrants living in the U.S. illegally who dont have serious criminal records, according to two people with knowledge of his deliberations. The change, if adopted following an ongoing review ordered by President Barack Obama, could shield tens of thousands of immigrants now removed each year solely because they committed repeat immigration violations, such as re-entering the country illegally after having been deported, failing to comply with a deportation order or missing an immigration court date. However, it would fall short of the sweeping changes sought by activists. They want Obama to expand a two-year-old program that grants work permits to certain immigrants brought here illegally as children to include other groups, such as the parents of any children born in the U.S. John Sandweg, who served until February as acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said he had promoted the policy change for immigrants without serious criminal records before his departure and that it was being weighed by Johnson. An immigration advocate whos discussed the review with the administration also confirmed the change was under consideration. The advocate spoke on condition of anonymity because the proceedings are confidential. Any report of specific considerations at this time would be premature, Clark Stevens, a spokesman for the Homeland Security Department, said Monday. Stevens said Johnson has undergone a very rigorous and inclusive process to best inform the review, including seeking input from people within DHS as well as lawmakers of both parties, and other stakeholders. The approach outlined by Sandweg and the immigration advocate would change the existing priority categories that now include immigrants whove reentered the country after they have been deported previously, and those who are fugitives from immigration proceedings. Such people would be taken off the priority list. The remaining priority categories focus on recent border-crossers and immigrants who pose a danger to national security or public safety or whove been convicted of crimes. Some of those categories might also be refined or changed, and others could be added. The time had come to focus ICEs efforts exclusively on public safety and national security, Sandweg said in explaining why he pushed for the change prior to his departure from the agency. He estimated that some 20,000 deported immigrants fell into the categories in question last year. Yemen: Strikes on al-Qaida base kill 55 Associated PressSANAA, Yemen Yemeni forces, reportedly backed by U.S. drone strikes, hit al-Qaida militants for a second straight day Monday in what Yemen officials said was an assault on a major base of the terror group hidden in the remote southern mountains. The government said 55 militants were killed so far. The sprawling base was a rare instance of a permanent infrastructure set up by al-Qaidas branch in the country, Yemeni security officials said. Built over the past months, it included a training ground, storehouses for weapons and food and vehicles used by the group to launch attacks, they said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release details to the press. The assault appeared to be a significant escalation in the U.S. and Yemeni campaign against al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, the terror groups powerful branch in the southern Arabian nation. The United States has been striking al-Qaida positions in the country heavily with drone strikes the past two years, trying to cripple the group after it was driven out of several southern cities it took over in 2011. But the group has proven highly resilient, spreading around the country and working from mountain areas. In a show of the groups boldness, a video recently posted on Islamic militant websites showed the groups leader Nasser al-Wahishi meeting openly with a gathering of dozens of militants in the southern province of Abyan. The base is in a remote mountain valley called Wadi al-Khayala in the rugged Mahfad region at the border between Abyan, and the neighboring provinces of Shabwa and al-Bayda. The first strikes came Sunday in an assault a highlevel government security committee said was an attack on training grounds for the group. The Yemeni Interior Ministry said it lasted for several hours. Russia has days, not weeks to follow accord US considers leniency for many illegal immigrants The move would fall short of the changes sought by activists, who want Obama to expand a two-year-old program that grants work permits to certain immigrants brought here illegally as children to include other groups, such as the parents of any children born in the U.S.
Area baseball teams set for district tournament action SEANARNOLD CorrespondentA season of prep work meets its test this week in district baseball tournament play. It takes just one win to send any of the countys baseball clubs to the state playoffs, but at least one will be eliminated on Wednesday, when Crystal River and Lecanto meet at Dunnellon High School for the District 5A-6 semifinals at 5 p.m. The No. 2-seeded Pirates (1111) and No. 3 Panthers (8-12) both finished 3-3 in district play, and split their headto-head games, forcing a second-level tiebreaker based on the teams record versus No. 1 Citrus (13-11). LHS senior Levi OSteen and CRHS junior Jordan Humphreys are perfectly capable of quieting a lineup from the mound, meaning runs, once again, could come at a premium between the clubs on Wednesday. The Pirates, whove seen their four county games decided by an average of 1.25 runs, pushed across a pair of eighth-inning scores behind four hits for a 3-2 win in their recent meeting at LHS, which notched a 5-3 victory at CRHS. Despite the low-scoring intra-county contests, the two schools have some punch at the plate. CRHS senior Mason Pateracki, CRHS sophomore Zach Pattison, LHS senior Jacob Schenck, OSteen and Humphreys, who has totaled 11 hits in six district games, all boast averages hovering up around .400, while LHS senior shortstop Nate Hines tallied five hits against Crystal River this year. Both clubs also have reliable options behind their respective aces. A Pirate win would return CRHS to the playoffs for the first time since 2009. LHS seeks its second playoff berth in three seasons, and just its third in school history. Citrus and No. 4 Dunnellon (5-16) square off at 7 p.m. Wednesday for the second 5A-6 semifinal matchup. The series between the teams was the most lopsided of the season inside the district, as the Hurricanes outscored the Tigers 18-2 over two games. The second meeting got out of hand in a hurry with 13 Citrus runs coming in the first couple of innings, thanks in part to four Tiger errors and a two-run home run from sophomore Austin Bogart in the opening inning alone. The Canes are the most recent district winner and playoff team among the countys public schools, having secured a championship before advancing to the regional finals in 2012, and are one run from an undefeated district slate this year. But their five-game winning streak was snapped in a 5-3 season-finale loss against Brooksville Central last Thursday. The Canes offense revolves around Austin Bogart (.551 on-base, 29 runs) and Cody Bogart (.338 batting) and senior Ben Wright (.338 batting), whos shown steady improvement over his two varsity seasons.

One year after a bombing there killed three people and left more than 260 injured, Meb Keflezighi added Boston to a resume that includes the New York City Marathon title in 2009 and a silver medal in the 2004 Olympics. Running just two weeks before his 39th birthday, he had the names of the 2013 bombing victims on his bib. At the end, I just kept thinking, Boston Strong. Boston Strong, he said. I was thinking Give everything you have. If you get beat, thats it. Keflezighi completed the 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to the finish on Boylston Street in Bostons Back Bay on Monday in a personal-best 2 hours, 8 minutes, 37 seconds. He held off Kenyas Wilson Chebet, who finished 11 seconds behind. Keflezighi went out early and built a big lead. But he was looking over his shoulder several times as Chebet closed the gap over the final two miles. After realizing he wouldnt be caught, Keflezighi raised his sunglasses, began pumping his right fist and made the sign of the cross. He broke into tears after crossing the finish line, then draped himself in the American flag. No U.S. runner had won the race since Lisa Larsen-Weidenbach took the womens title in 1985. The last American man to win was Greg Meyer in 1983. Meyer and Keflezighi embraced after the race. Im blessed to be an American and God bless America and God bless Boston for this special day, Keflezighi said. Noah named NBAs top defender Associated PressDEERFIELD, Ill. Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah was named the NBA Defensive Player of the Year on Monday in front of friends and family. This is very humbling to be in this situation right now, Noah said at a news conference where his family was in the front row. He told coach Tom Thibodeau: Without your system, this wouldnt be possible. Noah joins Michael Jordan in 1988 as the only Bulls players to win the award. The recognition comes after he helped Chicago win 48 games and capture home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs despite losing Derrick Rose to a season-ending knee injury and trading away Luol Deng. It also comes at a time when hes getting about as much praise for his ability on offense after being known primarily for his defense and rebounding. Noah has improved in a big way in that area since he was drafted out of Florida in 2007 and was the Bulls most valuable player this season, averaging career highs of 12.6 points, 11.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists. Hes a focal point on offense, with the ball often being funneled through him, and he remains their anchor on defense. His ability to cover ground and rotate onto smaller players in pick-and-roll situations creates havoc for opponents. He averaged 1.5 blocks.

Associated PressMIAMI Dwyane Wade is not planning on missing any more games this season, and that means life on the Miami Heat equipment room staff is going to get considerably more demanding. They dont mind. Its a small price when a team is looking for a third straight title. Wade keeps the equipment guys busy on game days: He needs at least one pair of new sneakers to start games, a backup pair ready just in case, and usually two full sets of uniforms because his penchant for producing tons of sweat often leads to ingame wardrobe changes. Nobody complains, because everyone around the team knows the Heat are significantly better when Wade is playing. Such was the case Sunday, when Wade scored 23 points and the Heat won Game 1 of their Eastern Conference first-round series against Charlotte. Cant get no righter, Heat star LeBron James said, answering a question about whether Wade looked right. Wade made 10 of 16 shots, added five assists, played 34 minutes and was part of a Heat win for the first time in a month. He downplayed it all afterward, but being on the court, in a win, without setbacks was an extremely positive sign for the Heat guard. Just a natural day, didnt have to think too much, Wade said. Just was playing and making reads. Game 2 of the best-ofseven series is Wednesday night in Miami. The Heat had no formal practice on Monday, though that hardly means it was a day off. When Wade doesnt play, hes often working harder than when he is on the floor, between treatments and conditioning and weightlifting and all the things he needs to keep an edge. After he strained his hamstring March 26, Wade wanted to play a few days later. The team kept him out longer than he hoped or wanted but the end result was that he was fully healthy for the start of the postseason, which was the biggest key to Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. We had to see certain things before we could clear him, Spoelstra said. And nobody wanted a setback. Not now. That was the mantra with Wade all season, especially after how both knees hurt so much during last seasons playoffs. To get ready for the toughest time of year, Wade first had to accept some tough realities. Wade was 155th in the NBA in minutes played this season, appearing in only 54 games. Most of those absences starting with the second game of the regular season were because of a kneemaintenance program. He knew there were critics of how much or how little he was playing, but the Heat were undeterred and stayed with the plan. It was what it was, Wade said. Like we said coming in, it was going to be a different year. From year to year, you dont know what to expect. You come in hoping for the best, but youve got to be prepared and ready for everything. And thats where we were and thats where I was. It happened and we move on and weve got two more months of basketball, hopefully. Its simple: When Wade is good, the Heat are great. When he shoots over 60 percent, the Heat are 17-3 this season. When he has at least 23 points, as he had Sunday, theyre 13-4. We all still know what D-Wade brings to the table, James said. And were going to need that.B2TUESDAY, APRIL22, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS 000I0XA Annual Florida Sportsman QF NO Child Left Indoors Fishing and Shooting Day Gates open at 8:30 am till 3:00 pm Lunch Served at 11:30 am BRING YOUR POLES & BRING YOUR CHAIRS FWC Richloam Fish Hatchery 3583 CR 788, Webster FREE Saturday April 26, 2014 Activities include: Archery Fishing Tournament Hatchery Tours BB Gun Shooting Swamp Brothers Show Bird Dog Demonstration Smokey Bear FUN-FILLED YOUTH EVENT!

NBA coaching: Woodson, Corbin fired; Adelman decides to retire Associated PressMike Woodson and Tyrone Corbin lost their jobs, and Rick Adelman decided it was time to walk away from his. Woodson and Corbin were fired Monday and Adelman retired, creating coaching openings for three NBA teams. Woodson was expected to be replaced after Phil Jackson was hired last month as New York Knicks president during a disappointing season for a team that expected to make the playoffs. He informed Woodson and the entire coaching staff they were being dismissed Monday morning. The coaches and players on this team had an extremely difficult 2013-14 season, and blame should not be put on one individual. But the time has come for change throughout the franchise as we start the journey to assess and build this team for next season and beyond, Jackson said in a statement. Woodson went 109-79 with the Knicks, a .580 winning percentage that ranks behind only Pat Riley and Jeff Van Gundy in franchise history. But after winning 54 games and the Atlantic Division title last season, the Knicks were just 37-45. The Jazz had no such expectations for this season after the departures of Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap, but declined to offer Corbin a new contract after they went 25-57. Corbin, a former Jazz player and assistant who replaced Jerry Sloan on Feb. 10, 2011, went 112-146. This has not been an easy decision, but after a thorough review process, we as an organization feel that this is the best decision for our franchise moving forward, general manager Dennis Lindsay said. Adelman won more than 1,000 games in 23 seasons, but the Minnesota Timberwolves were a disappointing 40-42 this season. He wanted to spend more time with wife Mary Kay, who has been treated for seizures over the last two years, and also thinks the Wolves need a fresh voice to help them try to persuade star power forward Kevin Love to remain in Minnesota. If anything, I felt if I coached another year and then his future comes up and my future is gone, that makes it even harder, Adelman said. I think its best for the organization to have somebody else coaching the team, give them a year to see what they can do and hear that voice. I think thats a much more positive situation for the organization. I feel strongly about that. The Detroit Pistons are still looking for a fulltime coach after firing Maurice Cheeks during the season, and the Los Angeles Lakers could decide to replace Mike DAntoni after going 27-55 during an injury-plagued season.

BOWLERS OF THE WEEK: Andrea Kish, 119 pins over her average, and Edgar Relyveld, 118 pins over his average. Parkview LanesBOWLING QB Freeman signs with Giants Associated PressEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Josh Freeman signed with the New York Giants on Monday to be a backup quarterback to Eli Manning. Freeman was released by Tampa Bay early last season and spent the rest of 2013 with Minnesota. His one start for the Vikings was in a 23-7 loss to the Giants in which he struggled, going 20 of 53 for 190 yards with an interception. Freeman is the 15th veteran the Giants have added in free agency. He joins Manning, Curtis Painter and Ryan Nassib as quarterbacks on the roster. New York is expected to keep either two or three quarterbacks next season. Tampa Bay cut Freeman in a messy split last year. He was the Buccaneers first-round draft pick in 2009 out of Kansas State. He became a starter in November of that year and started 60 games for Tampa Bay. Freemans quarterbacks coach in Minnesota was Craig Johnson, now the Giants running backs coach. Im definitely excited about being a part of this great organization, the 26-year-old Freeman said during the teams first day of offseason conditioning. Obviously, its a chance to go play quality football, learn from some great coaches, learn from a great quarterback in Eli. ... Yeah, Im definitely looking forward to it. Freeman went 0-3 as a starter in 2013 with the Buccaneers before being cut on Oct. 3. He signed with the Vikings five days later, but other than his start against the Giants, he was a nonfactor in Minnesota. Last year was rough all around, but Im happy to get a new start here and have an opportunity to be there for the Giants and see where it goes, he said.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE innings in his teams semifinal win over Ocala West Port last season. Wednesdays pair of winners meet in the district championship game 7 p.m. Friday at DHS. Its-why-they-play-the-game bromides aside, todays 2A-3 semifinal game between top-seeded Seven Rivers Christian and No. 4 Palatka Peniel Baptist Academy or No. 5 St. Augustine Beacon of Hope Academy is a virtual formality for the Warriors, who allowed one run and scored 111 in eight district games this season. Barring a shocking upset, No. 2 Ocala St. John Lutheran (17-6) and SRCS (18-2) figure to meet for the seventh time in two years in Thursdays championship game. The Warriors have won three of four against the Saints, including last years district title tilt, but were dropped from the playoffs by their Ocala rival in the regional semifinals last year. Each club enjoys a wealth of arms and bats that have piled up gaudy statistics this season. SRCS is led overall by the triumvirate of junior Cory Weiand, eighth-grader Parker Pillsbury and senior Adam Gage, who bested SJLS on the mound for a 2-1 win in the teams most recent meeting. The Warriors play at 1:30 p.m. today at St. John Lutheran School in Ocala. The title game starts at 4 p.m. on Thursday. The admission price for all games is $6.

Jeptoo finished in a course-record 2 hours, 18 minutes, 57 seconds. She is a three-time Boston Marathon champion, having also won in 2006. I came here to support the people in Boston and show them that we are here together, she said. I decided to support them and show them we are here together. Jeptoo broke away from a group of five runners at the 23-mile mark. Buzunesh Deba of Ethiopia finished second in 2:19:59. Countrywoman Mare Dibaba was third at 2:19:52. All three women came in under the previous course record. American Shalane Flanagan, who went to high school in nearby Marblehead, finished seventh after leading for more than half the race. She gambled by setting the early pace, but fell back on the Newton Hills about 21 miles into the race. It does mean a lot to be that my city was proud of me, she said. Im proud of how I ran. I dont wish I was it was easier. I wish I was better. After breaking a 27-year American drought at the New York marathon, Keflezighi contemplated retiring after the 2012 NYC Marathon. But that race was canceled because of Superstorm Sandy, and he pulled out of the Boston Marathon last April because of injury. He watched the race from the stands at the finish line, but said he left about five minutes before the bombs went off. He was the first American to medal in an Olympic marathon since Frank Shorter won gold in 1972 and silver in 1976. His 2009 New York victory broke a 27-year American drought there. Another American, Tatyana McFadden, celebrated her 25th birthday Monday by winning the womens wheelchair race for the second straight year. She was timed in in 1 hour, 35 minutes, 6 seconds. McFadden was born in Russia and lived in an orphanage as a child before starring at the University of Illinois. She also won the 2013 NYC Marathon womens wheelchair race after taking the titles in Boston, London and Chicago last year. Ernst van Dyk of South Africa won the mens wheelchair division for a record 10th time. The 41-year-old crossed in 1 hour, 20 minutes, 36 seconds. Van Dyk holds the record for most all-categories Boston Marathon wins. This was his first win at this race since 2010. Last years mens champion, Lelisa Desisa, did not finish this years race, and had to be picked up by a van about 21 miles into the event. Marathon officials said 35,755 runners registered for the race, with 32,408 unofficial starters. The field included just less than 5,000 runners who were not able to finish last year and accepted invitations to return this year.

Associated PressBOSTON The Baltimore Orioles scored six runs off Clay Buchholz in the third inning then held on to spoil Bostons Patriots Day morning game a year after the Boston Marathon bombings with a 7-6 win over the Red Sox on Monday. The Red Sox had a chance to win in the ninth when they loaded the bases with one out on a single by Brock Holt, a double by Dustin Pedroia and an intentional walk to David Ortiz. One run scored on Mike Napolis groundout to second, but Mike Carp grounded out to first as Tommy Hunter escaped with his fifth save. The game began at 11:09 a.m., about an hour before Meb Keflezighi crossed the Boston Marathon finish line just over a mile away as the first American man to win the race since Greg Meyer in 1983.American League Indians 4, Royals 3CLEVELAND Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley hit two-run homers, powering the Cleveland Indians over the Kansas City Royals 4-3 when a fearless squirrel ran around Progressive Field and provided some extra entertainment.

Zach McAllister (3-0) gave up six hits and overcame three errors one on his errant throw.

Alex Gordon and Omar Infante each had two of the Royals six hits.White Sox 3, Tigers 1DETROIT Jose Abreu and Dayan Viciedo hit RBI doubles in the seventh inning, and the Chicago White Sox rallied for a 3-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers.

An April 17 report from the Centers of Disease Control said there was an increase in infections from vibrio bacteria found in raw shellfish. In 2013, cases were up 32 percent from the previous three years and 75 percent from about five years ago. But the numbers remain very small only 242 of the 20,000 foodborne illnesses recorded in 10 states.Salmonella decline seen in food poisoning report; other infections increaseMIKESTOBBE AP medical writerNEW YORK he governments latest report card on food poisoning shows a dip in salmonella cases, but an increase in illnesses from bacteria in raw shellfish. The report counts cases in only 10 states for some of the most common causes of foodborne illness, but is believed to be a good indicator of national food poisoning trends. Highlights from Thursdays report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:WHATS MAKING US SICK?Salmonella remains at the top of the chart, far ahead of most other foodborne germs. Only campylobacter a bacteria commonly linked to raw milk and poultry comes close. Other causes listeria, shigella and E. coli trail behind.IS FOOD POISONING GETTING WORSE?Overall, no. Last year, there were no significant changes in most kinds of food poisoning, compared to the previous three years. The new report tallied about 20,000 illnesses and 80 deaths in the 10 states, similar to previous years. The CDC estimates that 1 in 6 Americans get sick from contaminated food each year, though most cases are not reported.ANY GOOD NEWS?Yes, for salmonella. The rate of new cases dropped 9percent the biggest drop in about a decade. But officials are cautious about making too much of it because it was compared to a time period that included a big outbreak linked to eggs in 2010. Last years rate is similar to what it was about five years ago. CDC officials hope new regulatory proposals, like one to prevent salmonella in chicken parts, will keep pushing rates down.WHAT ABOUT BAD NEWS?There was an increase in infections from vibrio bacteria found in raw shellfish, such as oysters. Last year, cases were up 32percent from the previous three years and 75percent from about five years ago. But the numbers remain very small only 242 of the 20,000 illnesses recorded in the 10 states. Climate change is warming coastal waters in some places, and that may be helping spread some vibrio strains to new locations, said Dr. Robert Tauxe, a CDC food-germ expert. The warmer the water, the more vibrio, he said. A strain traditionally found in the Pacific Northwest is now showing up along the East Coast. Tauxe said it might have been spread through water in ships ballast tanks.CAN YOU PREVENT FOOD POISONING?Carefully wash and clean food, and cook meat, poultry and eggs thoroughly. Avoid raw milk and unpasteurized juices. Promptly refrigerate leftovers. A government report last year showed leafy greens such as lettuce and spinach were the leading source of food poisoning, and produce in general accounted for nearly half of all illnesses. There were slightly more deaths attributed to poultry than to vegetables in the decade studied. Microbiologist Dr. Molly Freeman pulls Listeria bacteria from a tube Nov. 25, 2013, to be tested for its DNA fingerprinting in a foodborne disease outbreak lab at the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.

This year, roughly 12,360 cases, down from 15,000 cases 15 years ago, of cervical cancer will be diagnosed in the United States. With the widespread utilization of the yearly Papanicolaou (Pap) smears, the risk of developing cervical cancer has dramatically declined over the past 25 years. The cervix is the lower portion of the uterus, which opens into the vagina. All women who are 18 or older or sexually active should have regular yearly Pap smears. These Pap smears allow for the detection and treatment of any pre-malignant changes before they turn to a true cancer. Many methods and techniques exist to treat dysplasia, the pre-malignant changes that can be detected by a Pap smear. Several risk factors have been associated with cancer of the cervix. They include sexual intercourse at an early age, a history of multiple sexual partners, a large number of pregnancies, a history of venereal warts and smoking. Exposure to the human papilloma virus (HPV) with infection has been strongly tied to the development and risk of cervical cancer. On the other hand, cervical cancer is rare in sexually inactive women and in those who have not given birth. Typical symptoms of cervical cancer include abnormal vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain and an increase in urinary frequency or blood in the urine. If an examination reveals an abnormality of the cervix, a biopsy is obtained and computed tomography (CT) scans are also obtained to assist in determining the extent of the disease. It is often also helpful to visualize the bladder and rectum with cystoscopy and sigmoidoscopy, respectively, to rule out extension of the tumor to these organs. The treatment of cervical cancer depends upon the extent of the disease at the time of diagnosis and the general health of the patient. Generally speaking, for early small lesions confined to the cervix with no evidence of local or distant spread, surgery utilizing a radical hysterectomy and removal of lymph nodes in the pelvis or radiation therapy can be utilized with equal and good results. Many factors, including age and health will help to determine which is best. For larger, more advanced lesions, radiation therapy is the treatment of choice. The utilization of chemotherapy has been looked at in several clinical trials and does appear to induce a response with tumor shrinkage in about 50percent to 60percent of patients and continues to be evaluated in combination with both surgery and radiation therapy. As with most cancers, the long-term prognosis after treatment is dependent upon how early the tumor is detected and treated. For early lesions, the five-year survival rate is about 90percent. This drops to about 60percent for larger lesions, and down to about 15percent for very advanced cancers which have spread beyond the pelvis. The Pap smear represents one of the most successful advances in both the prevention and early detection of cervical cancer in use today. It is therefore vital that women continue to have regular Pap smears according to the recommendation of their physician.Dr. C. Joseph Bennett is a boardcertified radiation oncologist.

He has been healthy all his life. He felt well and so did not see any doctor for two years. When he saw his family doctor, he ordered a complete blood count and it showed that his blood cells were all low. Blood is a constantly circulating fluid providing the body with nutrition, oxygen and waste removal. Blood is mostly liquid, with numerous cells and proteins suspended in it, making blood thicker than pure water. There are three kinds of blood cells. About half of blood volume is composed of blood cells: Red blood cells, which carry oxygen from the lungs to all over the body. White blood cells, which fight infections. Platelets, smaller cells that help blood to clot. His blood counts were extremely low and bone marrow makes blood cells. I advised him to have a bone marrow biopsy. A bone marrow biopsy is the removal of soft tissue, called marrow, from inside the bone. Bone marrow is found in the hollow part of most bones. This is an in-office procedure and after the procedure, he drove back home. His bone marrow biopsy showed that he has advanced myelodysplastic syndrome. This causes the blood stem cells not to mature into healthy red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets. The immature blood cells, called blasts, do not function normally and either die in the bone marrow or soon after they enter the blood. This leaves less room for healthy white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets to form in the bone marrow. When there are fewer blood cells, infection, anemia or easy bleeding may occur. This condition affects usually senior citizens. Long-term exposure to benzene or other toxins, such as tobacco smoke and insecticides, may increase the risk of developing MDS. He required blood transfusion and platelet transfusions. He was then started on a drug called Decitabine. This is given intravenously daily for five days and repeated every four weeks. He has just completed one cycle of the treatment. He tolerated it well. His platelet count has already normalized. He is not bleeding any more. He will need multiple courses of the treatment and he hopefully will become transfusion independent and all his blood counts will improve. Only time will answer this.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist. He is the volunteer medical adviser of the Citrus Unit of American Cancer Society. Write to 521 N.

That means swim season is around the corner as well. That means that acute otitis externa season is around the corner. It is inevitable that there will be an uptick of visits to the doctors office in regard to this type of problem. Here are some tips and information that might be helpful. First thing, are over-thecounter drops okay for a swimmers ear? The answer to that is yes, if it is mild and uncomplicated. Typically, eardrops whether over-the-counter or prescription are usually adequate to treat an uncomplicated case of otitis externa or swimmers ear. Drops are found to be the most effective method for treatment and oral antibiotics are not necessarily needed unless there is a widespread infection and swelling. The ear might need to be cleaned out. There might be skin, hair and wax in the ear that would not allow the drops to come in contact with the surface and take care of the infection. Besides the over-the-counter drops, there are about a half of dozen prescription drops that can be used and some are very inexpensive, some are available in generic form, and none of them is better than the other. They just have to be used properly. If it is an uncomplicated case that does not respond to overthe-counter drops, the physician can use a generic pre scription eardrop and do fine. If there is an issue of perforated eardrum, a more expensive drop might need to be used because of concern of hearing damage. You also need to let your doctor know about any medicine allergies. You might think that if you are allergic to a medication, that might only occur when you take it internally, but some of the eardrops could cause a topical reaction when they come in contact with the surface of the skin. I have seen this with sulfa-type drops and with drops that have steroids in them. Also, there are drops that are in solution and have alcohol versus drops that are in suspension that do not have alcohol, and they might be painful and mimic or copy a reaction when there is not a true allergic reaction occurring. Complicated ear problems often occur in diabetic patients and patients who continue to get water in their ears and the skin, as a result, is broken down and takes longer to heal. This might be a situation where oral medication would be helpful. On average, it takes about 48 to 72 hours to start feeling better once the drops have been started. In the meantime, if there is some discomfort, Tylenol or NSAIDS work nicely to help alleviate the pain. Drops are typically used for about a week, and in some more resistant or difficult cases can be used for two weeks. Other things to think about when you have an ear infection include not instrumenting the ear. That means no Q-tips or bobby pins in the ear. Do not get water in the ear; keep it dry until it is completely healed and then you can resume normal water activity, including shampooing, showering and swimming. A good, inexpensive earplug is a piece of cotton saturated with Vaseline, and it will keep the water out, but nothing is foolproof. If you try to put the cotton ball in your ear and jump in the water, I guarantee you it will come out and water will get in the ear. If you are looking to prevent ear infections, you might want to try earplugs that fit snugly and use them before you go into the water and get the infection.

Associated PressMEXICO CITY Mexicos new food labeling rules were supposed to help fight an obesity epidemic, but activists and experts said Monday they may actually encourage the public to consume high levels of sugar. The debate over sugar has grown bitter, in a country with one of the highest obesity rates in the Western Hemisphere. The new label rules unveiled last week list the amount of sugar and other contents as a percent of recommended daily intakes. The new labels will no longer list the weights of the ingredients, instead simply listing them as calories and percentages of recommended daily intake. But the labels assume that an average acceptable daily consumption of sugar is about 360 calories, equivalent to about 90 grams of sugar. The World Health Organization has proposed a sugar intake of as little as 100 calories or about 25grams per day. Almost three dozen public health and nutrition experts published a full-page ad in Mexican newspapers Monday saying the new rules increase the risk of obesity and diabetes. It said the labeling system is difficult to understand and represents a serious risk to the health of Mexicans, according to the ad. The government health agency responsible for publishing the new rules last week did not immediately answer calls for comment. First United Methodist Church of Homosassa has several support groups that run on a monthly basis. All groups are open to the public and free of charge, and meet at 1 p.m. in Room 203 in the Administration Building: First Monday: diabetic support group.

In whatever field one is involved, it is important to know when enough is enough. I was working on a patient today to remove decay from beneath two existing crowns. Once I removed the crowns, it was obvious the decay was more extensive than suspected. It was at that point that I sat the patient up so we could talk. I advised the patient that, though the teeth could be saved, it would require an extensive amount of work, time and money. In addition, the overall long-term prognosis (how long the restoration might last) was questionable. I suggested to the patient that the two teeth be removed and discussed her options on how to replace them. Since one of them was opposing only half of the tooth above it, I recommended not replacing it. After a discussion about why this made sense, she agreed with my reasoning. The other tooth was necessary for function. I told her she could have an implant placed in the same spot the tooth is now, and a crown could be made to fasten to it. Alternatively, she could have the tooth removed and have a bridge made. As you may know, a bridge is a way to permanently replace a missing tooth. In this case, both of the adjacent teeth that would have been used for the support of the bridge already had crowns on them that were in good shape. It is for this reason I recommended the implant as the ideal way to replace this particular tooth. This brings me back to my first statement. Though these teeth were able to be saved, it just made more sense to remove them and restore the area in a more ideal, predictable and cost-effective manner. For this, the patient thanked me and suggested this column be written. I hope this has some meaning for you, the readers of this column. Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa.

Fond memories of Bill and June Halavans lovely portrayal of Norman and Ethel Thayer at the Art Center in years gone by linger. Their dedication to the Art Center was unique. On Golden Pond is an award-winning theater classic that continues to fascinate. An endearing story easily identifiable, emotionally charged, humorous and insightful, it has been produced worldwide. It won Academy Awards as a movie. Written by Ernest Thompson and directed by Sharon Harris, the cast captured the compelling emotions of Ethel and Norman, played by Doc Weingarten and Sharon Farnsworth. Supporting cast members were Terre Basalyga as the Thayers daughter Chelsea, Joseph Arnold as Billy and Johnny Hackey as Bill, Douglas Haynes as Charlie Martin and John Morgan as the operator. Set in Maine in the summer home at Golden Pond, it is a love story like no other, the 48th for Ethel and Norman, and possibly their last together. Divorced daughter Chelsea and fianc Bill and his son Billy Ray invade their solitude and the characters run the gamut of emotions in relationship building. Modernized for 2014, director Harris introduced the play by telling us that we were the lake and the stage area was the Thayers summer home. It opens with the Thayers unwrapping the covers on the furniture, checking the phone with the telephone operator, viewing the ever-present loons out on the lake with binoculars and Ethel returning from a walk in the woods having picked strawberries. Staunch and ever the independent outspoken Norman, nearing 80, is looking at want ads for possible employment. Friendly mailman Charlie Martin drops in for coffee and a biscuit. It was tissue time for us when Norman returns after getting lost while attempting to pick strawberries in the woods nearby and admitting he has lost his way, saying, I just wanted to find my way back home so I could see your beautiful face again. On their third month at Golden Pond, daughter Chelsea, often with a strained relationship with her father, Norman, arrives with her fianc his teen son. Plans are under way for Normans 80th birthday celebration. Bill and Norman have a spirited conversation concerning the sleeping arrangements of the unmarried couple. Street-smart-talking Billy opens up a whole new language for Norman. Generations apart, yet both highly opinionated, the two practically stole the show as they get to know one another. Ever the inquisitive one, Norman asks Billy, What does a 17-year-old do? Reply: Pick up girls. Then Norman tells Billy to go read Swiss Family Robinson so they can discuss it in the morning. Telling remarks reveal the contrasting moods Weingarten magnificently captured after Chelsea arrives with Bill and Billy, from his incessant demise musings to the playful bantering with Billy. Oneupmanship between the two practically stole the show, filling the theater with gales of laughter from the audience. Farnsworth brought such warmth and sensitivity to the role of Ethel when she lovingly says, You are the sweetest man in the world and no one knows it but me. Joseph Arnold brought out a teen Billys perspective perfectly, and yet was able to bond with Norman to the amazement of Ethel and Chelsea. The mother-daughter lines between Ethel and Chelsea, though heated, remain a bond that Farnsworth and Basalyga portrayed with remarkable feeling when, finally, Ethel says: Time marches on. Norman isnt always kind, but hes my husband. When Chelsea and Norman have time to spend together alone and she lets the chip on her shoulder fall away, Basalyga earns her Art Center star for brilliance. Doug Haynes, as postman Charley Martin, former love interest of Chelsea, proved that he has that natural talent that responds to great direction that Sharon Harris brings to Art Center productions. John Morgan, as the telephone operator, is a multitalented volunteer with the Art Centers youth productions, sound and light tech and backstage managing. On Golden Pond was an unforgettable Art Center production from casting, to staging, to direction and to the performance.Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community.

TUESDAY, APRIL22, 2014 C9CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Flip Wilson, a comedian and actor who died in 1998, said, Get-well cards have become so humorous that if you dont get sick, youre missing half the fun. If you miss the right play at the bridge table, it is not fun and can make you feel uncomfortable. Lets stay fit and healthy during todays deal. South is in three no-trump. What should he do after West leads the diamond queen? Note Norths rebid. He could not support spades or hearts, or rebid diamonds, or bid notrump. He solved the problem by resorting to three clubs, the artificial fourth-suit game-forcing. The most common reason for using fourthsuit-forcing is a desire to get to three no-trump, but the responder does not have a stopper in that fourth suit. Declarer has seven top tricks: one spade, two hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. The opening lead makes it impossible that the diamonds are breaking favorably. Instead, South must play to win three spade tricks. He cashes dummys ace (both defenders play low), then leads the spade five toward his hand. Assuming East plays low, what should declarer do? If the suit is splitting 3-3, everything will work. But what about a more likely 4-2 division? If West has king-queen-fourth, declarer is going down. If East has king-queen-fourth, putting up the jack (or 10) is the winning play. However, if West began with a doubleton, it is 8 to 6 that he has honor-doubleton, not low-doubleton. So South should play low from his hand, which, of course, works here.

R Salem MA WitchesMother Dear Annie: I am quite a bit overweight. My 29-year-old daughter is concerned that I might have a heart attack and die on her. Meanwhile, she has been smoking cigarettes since she was 16 years old. She said to me, If you have gastric bypass surgery, I will quit smoking. My sister says I should absolutely do it because I might be saving my daughters life. That is an awful burden to place on me. Of course, I would love to lose weight, but something as drastic as gastric bypass surgery is frightening to me. Am I being selfish by not wanting to have the surgery? Need Your Help Dear Need: Not at all. We know your daughters heart is in the right place and that she is worried about you. But surgeries, including gastric bypass, come with serious risks. Such surgery is a last resort for those who are morbidly obese and have been unable to lose weight any other way. Have you tried programs like Weight Watchers or Overeaters Anonymous? Have you seen a nutritionist about eating in a more healthful way? Have you attempted an exercise program or checked at your local gym for a personal trainer? These are all steps you should take to get your weight into a healthy range. So heres a better bargain: Tell your daughter that you will get into a diet and exercise program while she works on giving up cigarettes. Someday, she may have a 29-yearold daughter who worries that her mother will die from smoking. We wish you both the best. Dear Annie: This is a plea to women everywhere. When I use a public restroom and there is urine splashed all over the toilet seat, I want to scream. If there is another stall, I will use it instead, but otherwise, I am stuck cleaning off this mess with a wad of toilet paper before I can use the seat. Then I have to find my hand sanitizer. So heres the simple request: Ladies, if you sprinkle when you tinkle, be a sweetie, wipe the seatie! Grimacing in Sarasota Fla. Dear Grimacing: We are on your side. But in all fairness, women often dont want to sit on a public toilet, and if there are no paper seat covers, they may feel it is necessary to hover over the seat. Also, sometimes the flush itself creates splashing, which is not the womans fault. So, ladies, please check the seat before you leave the stall and be considerate of the next woman. Dear Annie: I am so glad Not a Prude addressed the issue of undressed women in the TV news. It is vulgar and sad. I can get past the sleeveless dresses, but Im sick of the cross-legged, tooshort skirt pose and the deep cleavage. What happened to sitting behind a news desk? Why do we have to see anyones legs? I am not a prude, but I refuse to watch any news station where the women dress this way. Our society glorifies sex. I remember one female announcer saying that the reason women wear dresses is because the man wears the pants. I wonder whether she wears dresses at home with her husband. It is degrading and sexist for any TV producer to insist that the female employees wear inappropriate clothing just to get more viewers. And it is sad for any woman to give in to that pressure in order to keep her job. Wearing short dresses and showing cleavage is unprofessional and sends the wrong message to other women and young girls who want to succeed in the professional world. Another Woman Speaking Out Dear Another: If enough people stop watching the stations that promote men as professionals and women as sex symbols, maybe things will change.
