The central question of the trial is whether or not GOP leaders ignored a 2010 constitutional amendment that forced legislators for the first time to draw up congressional districts that do not protect incumbents or members of a political party. The new districts were adopted by the Legislature more than two years ago. The coalition of groups behind the lawsuit, including the League of Women Voters, contends that a shadow process was used to make sure that Republicans were protected. Legislative leaders have insisted the allegations are false and that legislators followed the law even though GOP legislators opposed passage of the Fair Districts amendment. Attorneys for the groups suing See TRIAL/ Page A2 CHRISVANORMER Staff writerJust five days past the anniversary of his first retirement announcement that was rescinded last August, County Administrator Brad Thorpe announced Monday that he plans to retire in September. It has been over a year since I announced my intention to retire, Thorpe stated in an email message. I believe now is time to formally announce that I will be retiring on Sept. 26, 2014. This date should give the board sufficient time to select a new county administrator. On May 14, 2013, Thorpe first gave notice of his retirement, saying he would stay until his replacement was found. But on Aug. 13, the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) by a 3-2 vote stopped the search for Thorpes replacement and allowed him to withdraw his resignation as the board had never officially accepted it.

Steven Fowler, 42, and Melissa Sims, 31, of East Walton Drive, both face multiple charges related to the manufacturing of methamphetamine. Fowler was charged with felony possession with intent to sell or manufacture methamphetamine and possession of listed chemicals with intent to manufacture methamphetamine. His bond was set at $150,000. Sims, the driver of the vehicle, was charged with felony conspiracy to commit a crime and the misdemeanor charge of knowingly driving with a suspended license. Her bond was set at $50,500. According to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, the pair was initially pulled over in the Wendys parking lot in Inverness for being suspects in a retail theft. A database search indicated Sims was driving with a suspended license, and Fowler had multiple outstanding Pasco County warrants. A K-9 unit alerted to possible drugs in the vehicle.

They start early in the morning before it gets hot, working in the rows and harvesting produce. Church ministry grows vegetables and gives them away NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerFLORAL CITYThere are two kinds of community gardens. One is a plot of land that people from the community can use to grow their own food. The other is one used by people to grow food for the community. Thats the idea behind the community garden in Floral City, an outreach ministry of Floral City United Methodist Church. Three days a week, church members come to the garden next to the church parsonage on Baker Street to weed, hoe and harvest squash, okra, tomatoes, eggplant, arugula, cantaloupes, cucumbers and watermelons. And then they give it away. So far, most of the food goes to CUB, said Valerie Maldonado, referring to Citrus United Basket. Produce also goes to Grace Temple Church of the Living God for its soup kitchen and First Baptist Church of Floral City for its food pantry. Skip LaBelle, former Georgia Master Gardener, oversees the project, which began March 20 with starter plants purchased from The Path farm. I wanted to grow things that are proven products in Florida soil, LaBelle said. Ive farmed in Georgia clay, but Florida soil is much different. Theyre growing several varieties of squash: crooked neck, zucchini, patty pan and eight ball, which looks like a round zucchini; red and Redistricting trial under way in capital See METH/ Page A9 See GARDEN/ Page A9 CMH Foundation approves $3M YMCA donationThe effort to build a YMCA healthy living center received a huge boost Monday night when the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation agreed to donate $3 million in philanthropic funds to the project. With the donation, the YMCA is only $1.1 million away from its goal to raise $8 million to build the center on County Road 486 near Pine Ridge. Chronicle Publisher Gerry Mulligan, who cochairs the Ys fundraising effort, said the donation provides a lasting legacy for the foundation even as it nears a lease contract with Hospital Corporation of America for operation of Citrus Memorial. This is going to be a tremendous facility, Mulligan said. The facility will be named the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation YMCA. Foundation attorney Clark Stillwell, who also sits on the YMCA board of directors, said two large potential donors Duke Energy and HCA were waiting to see whether the foundation approved the donation. Mulligan said he is negotiating with Duke and HCA for potential donations to reach the $8 million mark. Funding comes from bequests and donations to the philanthropic organization associated with Citrus Memorial. Hospital officials said some donors might request full or partial refunds after being informed that the largest donation is for the YMCA. About $350,000 of the fund will be used for nursing scholarships at the College of Central Florida and to buy equipment for the Nature Coast Ministrys dental clinic.

Mended Hearts draws field of experts STEPHEN E. LASKO/for the ChronicleDr. Eileen Handberg speaks on stem cell research and its therapeutic regenerative application in heart disease at Citrus Memorials Heart and Vascular Center in Inverness on Saturday. the Legislature got the trial quickly rolling by bringing a Republican consultant and friend of former House Speaker Dean Cannon to the stand. Evidence obtained from Marc Reichelderfers computer show that he got copies of proposed maps sometimes days and weeks before they were released to the public. Reichelderfer exchanged information about these proposed maps with other Republican consultants and he talked about one of the maps with U.S. Rep. Dan Webster. Reichelderfer got some of the maps from a top aide to Cannon, but said he could not recall how he got other copies. He repeatedly insisted that he did not tell Cannon or legislative staff whether changes to the districts would help or hurt Republicans. I did not tell them how to draw the maps, Reichelderfer said. The lawsuit said several districts, including the one held by U.S. Rep. Corinne Brown in Jacksonville, were drawn in a way to help Republicans because legislators packed Browns district with black voters who are usually registered as Democrats. Browns district winds all the way from Jacksonville to Orlando and was described as serpentine by one of the coalition lawyers. Legislative attorneys have countered that the loss of several Republicans during the 2012 elections including U.S. Rep. Allen West is proof that legislators did not draw districts just to help GOP politicians. If the court finds the current district unconstitutional it could force legislators to redraw congressional districts. Currently there are 16 Republicans and 10 Democrats in Floridas congressional delegation although Republican Curt Clawson is expected to win election next month to a vacant southwest Florida seat.

SIDIBE Staff writerAn Inverness man is in custody, accused of sexual battery and lewd and lascivious molestation on children younger than 12 years old. Jason Ray Rood, 39, was arrested on Friday. No bond was allowed. Rood is accused of recently sexually molesting and violating a 5-year-old girl. Additionally, he is charged with similarly molesting another female when she was 6 years old. That person is now 22. Investigators had recently received word that Rood had been sexually abusing a girl. An individual said she contacted Roods relatives about the allegations and, she said, she was told Rood was not allowed to have contact with children and that the alleged crime had been reported to authorities. However, investigators said they had never been contacted until a witness came forward. Both alleged victims reportedly told officials Rood would fondle and touch them on their privates and then demand they touch him in inappropriate ways. Rood reportedly denied the allegations against him and was transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

Man faces charges in sex case Jason Rood NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVERWhen youre 4 years old and you dont feel well and your mom takes you to the emergency room and youre scared and people are telling you to take medicine and you hate taking medicine and you just want to go home, thats when you need a superhero to come in and save the day. Enter Batman. Brady Rich, the scared, cranky, hurting 4-year-old, wouldnt take his medicine to bring his high fever down for anyone, until emergency room technician Jon Batman Backlund appeared in his Batman mask. Using his Batman voice he told Brady, Take the medicine, and the little boy did, just like that. All in a days work for those who work in emergency medicine. This week is Emergency Medicine Week, and Backlund is just one of hundreds in Citrus County who do what they need to do to help patients in times of medical emergencies. It was our very first time at the ER, and Batmans mask, his humor, his friendliness, his assistance and his awesomeness truly made our night, said Bradys mom, Brandy Rich. Brady had complained of severe lower back pain and his breathing was funny, Rich said. While they were at the hospital, he spiked a high fever. The medicine was to bring his fever down. Hes a terrible medicinetaker, Rich said. But as soon as he saw Batman, he smiled and drank it right up. Then when it was time to draw blood, the mere thought of a needle sent him into a panic and Batman held his hand. Backlund, an avid Batman fan, said he had brought the mask into work one Halloween to liven things up. Its a sad job here sometimes, he said. Thats when he discovered that it could be used to calm fears and be a much-needed distraction for little patients. Being in the hospital is no fun, Backlund said. I spent a month in the hospital as a kid when I got hit by a car. Backlunds not alone in the superhero department. Rob Langley is the Green Lantern and phlebotomist Jennifer Curry, while she doesnt wear a costume or mask, has a way with a syringe, turning them into squirt guns. She was wonderful, Rich said. She was very patient, explained to Brady what she would do and promised him his very own squirt gun syringe if he would be very still. The day Brady returned to visit Batman, he wore his superhero T-shirt and brought a handful of superhero toys to show his real-life hero. Batman and Robin fight the bad guys like Joker and Jokers friends, he said. Its the little things in life that can mean so much, Rich said. In this case, a Batman mask and a few minutes of someones time made a world of difference. Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at352-5642927 or nkennedy@chronicle online.com.

SIDIBE Staff writerA homeless woman is facing charges of brazenly walking into a Subway restaurant on Friday evening and robbing the cashier. Debra A. Fink, 54, is charged with robbery without the use of a weapon. Her bond was set at $10,000. The cashier at the Subway on U.S. 19 in Homosassa told investigators he first noticed Fink drinking a beer when he looked out of the window and across the parking lot. Fink reportedly walked into the restaurant and went to the cashier and demanded he hand over the cash in drawer or she would beat him up. The cashier told deputies he initially thought it was a joke until Fink repeated the demand and threat. The cashier said he complied and handed Fink roughly $310, which she reportedly stuffed in a shopping bag. Fink then left the Subway, walking toward U.S. 19, according to her Citrus County Sheriffs Office arrest affidavit. Investigators found the can of beer Fink was purportedly drinking before coming into the restaurant and combed the area looking for her. Fink was later spotted at a nearby bar and arrested. A witness who approached investigators said Fink had told him earlier in the day she was planning to rob the Subway because she was tired of living in the streets. Fink was transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility. Deputies: Woman robbed Subway Debra Fink John JJ Kenney

The justices ruled 6-3 on Monday that Paula Petrella did not wait too long to press her claims against Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Petrellas father, Frank Petrella, collaborated with legendary boxer Jake LaMotta on a book and two screenplays that inspired the movie. The elder Petrella died in 1981, with copyrights reverting to his daughter. She sued MGM in 2009 seeking royalties from continuing commercial use of the film. But lower courts said she waited too long because she had been aware of the potential to bring a claim since 1991.

In Mondays email message, Thorpe reviewed his extra year. This past year has given me and the board the opportunity to accomplish many high priority projects and resolve longstanding issues, Thorpe said. The county was able to establish budget stability during one of the most difficult economic times in the history of Citrus County. The Duke Energy tax dispute was resolved, which further stabilized our tax base. The Citrus County Fire Services is now administered by the sheriffs office and has established a funding program to meet a service level expected of the community. The (County Road) 491 medical corridor project is well under way and this initiative will serve to improve the transportation requirements of the Central Ridge area and be a catalyst for continued economic development. The Citrus County bike trail system is expanding. The relationship with the city of Inverness and the city of Crystal River continues to progress. The list goes on. Thorpe said he had confidence in the board managing future goals and objectives. I believe Citrus County is headed towards a bright future, Thorpe said. The board should be proud of our staff and the efforts they have made to accomplish your vision. As to his reason for retiring, Thorpe said: After many years of serving to this community, I believe that now is the right time for me to step aside. It has been a pleasure and honor to serve the board of county commissioners as the administrator these past five years and I wish you all the best. Thorpe told the Chroniclethat leaving now was a personal decision, but he would not elaborate. He said it was too early to tell whether he would still play a role in public life and that he plans to spend time with his family, traveling and boating. Brad, please, dont go, was Commission Chairman John JJ Kenneys first comment. Citrus County is losing a true public servant. Regardless of all the BS thats been going on, he has been truly dedicated to this county and people are going to realize that once hes gone. Nobody is irreplaceable, but Brad Thorpe has a sincere love for this county and for the people of this county. I dont really care what the naysayers say about him, hes a good and honorable man and he deserves our thanks for what hes given this county. Kenney said commissioners will discuss when to start a search for a new administrator, which he anticipated to begin soon. However, Commissioner Dennis Damato pointed out that Thorpe has given the board four months notice, time enough to delay the search for a few weeks if the board decides to do so. I asked him to stay through the budget because its important because (Budget Director) Cathy Taylor will be leaving at approximately the same time, Damato said. Damato said the loss of Thorpe, Taylor and Assistant County Administrator Cathy Pearson who announced last week she is taking a similar job in Pasco County will impact him quite a bit during the next two years of his term, because Im probably going to be the chairman of the board of county commissioners being that Commissioner (Rebecca) Bays is not seeking re-election. Damato said as senior commissioner he has experience in replacing administrators. What you have to do is circle the wagons, get with your remaining staff and hold everything together, Damato said. Damato said he does not believe Thorpe will hire a replacement for Pearson. Instead, Thorpe likely will leave that choice to his own replacement, Damato said. The administrators main job during the summer is to get the budget ready, Damato said. Commissioner Rebecca Bays said Thorpe was leaving at a critical time for county government. Its my understanding that several of our senior staff members will have the eligibility to retire over the next one to three years, Bays said. Were going to have a big void in the historical knowledge within the county. Were going to have to do a good search for the right person to come on. A new administrator, Bays said, could be in a position to build a new team of staff members. Commissioner Joe Meek said Thorpe has done an excellent job as county administrator. He has guided our community through some of the most difficult times, especially this last year with the budget shortfall, Meek said. He has served this community for literally decades. He has made Citrus County a better place to call home. Commissioner Scott Adams, who in February 2013 made a motion that failed for lack of a second to fire Thorpe, did not say he would miss Thorpe. I dont wish nothing bad on anybody but its time for the right change for Citrus Countys sake, because if we dont change, this little countys in a bunch of trouble, Adams said. Adams favored delaying the search for a new administrator until after the elections for commission districts 2 and 4. Im going to suggest we wait until the elections are over because none of them may be there, Adams said. I think that would only be the right thing. We can put in somebody temporary. The Florida Association of Counties can supply us with one. That may be better.

Timothy Rooks, 51CRYSTAL RIVERThe life of this generous man who unselfishly gave to others began in Crystal River, Florida, on Nov. 10, 1962. Tim was born to Betty Rooks Brown, a retired school teacher, and the late Honorable Ralph F. Rooks, who served as a Citrus County commissioner and a real estate broker. He grew up with two sisters, Deena and Terry, and three brothers, Mike, Alan, and Todd. Tim attended Crystal River High School and the University of Florida in Gainesville, where he met friends who became a part of his family for life. Tim genuinely cared about others less fortunate than himself. He was acutely aware of his obligations to society and committed many anonymous acts of generosity. A close friend remembers Tims first visit to New York City, during which he was completely confounded by the poverty and felt the need to dole out his travel budget among the homeless he encountered. Throughout his adulthood, Tim cared for his community and was devoted to making it a better place. Tim was a world traveler who enjoyed many friends and cultures. He had a true spirit of adventure and embraced life with joy and anticipation. Tim moved to Miami Beach in 1984, where he worked in the mortgage industry and later joined Macys Inc., where he achieved the position of director of Learning and Development. Tim touched hundreds of thousands of people during his 26-year career at Macys Inc. His colleagues remember him as a smart and talented professional. Over the years, he was recognized with awards by many publications and professional organizations for his work. A humble man, he maintained quiet leadership. He took his work seriously but not himself, remembers one co-worker. He retired in March and returned to Crystal River to spend time with his ailing mother. He was a loving, loyal, devoted son, brother, and friend. Surrounded by his sisters and closest friends, Tim passed away April 25, 2014, at UF Health Shands Hospital in Gainesville. His friends and family have found peace in knowing that Tim continues living through others as an organ donor. Tim was pre-deceased by his father, Ralph F. Rooks; maternal grandparents, Willard and Lucille Weiss; paternal grandparents, Paschel and Velma Rooks; and sisterin-law, Pamela Rooks. Tim is survived by his mother, Betty Rooks Brown; sisters, Terry Rooks (Joe Lese) and Deena Rooks Collins (Newell Collins); brothers, Mike Rooks (Francie Rooks), Alan Rooks (Mandy Rooks) and Todd Rooks (Lisa Rooks); nephews, Jason Worsham, Aaron Rooks, Todd Rooks, Alan Rooks and Ryan Veal; nieces, Taryn Allen, Jennifer Rooks Posser and Talesha Rooks; grandnieces and grandnephews, Ashleigh Allen, Alex Worsham, Presley Rooks, Porter Rooks and Vivian Posser; and devoted friends and chosen family, Alex Cervantes, Linda Boles (Bridget Didsbury) and Robert Wolfarth (Alex Fernandez).

Death ELSEWHERE From wire reports Associated PressLOS ANGELES Jerry Vale, 83, the beloved crooner known for his high-tenor voice and romantic songs in the 1950s and early 1960s, has died. Vale, who had been in declining health, died Sunday at his Palm Desert home surrounded by family and friends, family attorney Harold J. Levy said in a statement. Born Genaro Louis Vitaliano, Vale started performing in New York supper clubs as a teenager and went on to record more than 50 albums. His rendition of Volare, Innamorata and Al Di La became classic Italian-American songs. His biggest hit was You Dont Know Me. Vales recording of The Star-Spangled Banner in the 1960s was played at sporting events for years. While his albums failed to make the charts in the early 1970s, Vale remained a popular club act. He also appeared as himself in the movies Goodfellas, Casino and the TV series The Sopranos. Vale was a friend of fellow Italian-American crooner Frank Sinatra, and he was an honorary pallbearer at Sinatras funeral on May 20, 1998. Vale is survived by Rita, his wife of 55 years; a son, Robert; and a daughter, Pamela. 1950s crooner Jerry Vale dies Godfather cinematographer Gordon Willis dies Associated PressFALMOUTH, Mass. Gordon Willis, one of Hollywoods most celebrated and influential cinematographers, nicknamed The Prince of Darkness for his subtle but indelible touch on such definitive 1970s releases as The Godfather, Annie Hall and All the Presidents Men, has died. He was 82. Suzanne Berestecky of the Chapman Cole & Gleason funeral home in Falmouth confirmed Monday that he died and that the home is handling arrangements. Details on Willis death were not immediately available. Through much of the 1970s, Willis was the cameraman whom some of Hollywoods top directors relied on during one of filmmakings greatest eras. Francis Ford Coppola used him for the first two Godfather movies, Woody Allen for Annie Hall and Manhattan and Alan J. Pakula for Klute and All the Presidents Men. During a remarkable run from 1971 to 1977, films he worked on won 19 Oscars and were nominated 39 times, from best picture for The Godfather and Annie Hall to acting for Jane Fonda in Klute and John Houseman in The Paper Chase. Yet Willis never won a competitive Oscar and was nominated just twice, for Allens Zelig and for Coppolas The Godfather, Part III, which came out in 1990. An outsider by choice, Willis refused to live in California and told People magazine in 1983 that he had no interest in being rewarded for spending time on the golf course or attending dinner parties. The academy presented him an honorary award in 2009, noting his willingness to fly in the face of convention. Few directors of photography so ably demonstrated that a story could be told through the picture itself, whether the hushed, darkened opening of The Godfather; the bland, jaded sunshine of Los Angeles in Annie Hall or the shadowy encounters with Deep Throat in All the Presidents Men. He liked filming in the late afternoon, when the sun was dimming, and had a feel for capturing melancholy and the distant past. Willis trademarks were simplicity, the contrast of light and dark and a willingness to break the rules.
AstraZeneca rejects $119 billion offer from PfizerLONDON AstraZeneca on Monday rejected a $119 billion takeover offer from U.S. drugmaker Pfizer. Pfizer, which is the worlds second-biggest drugmaker by revenue, has been courting No. 8 AstraZeneca since January, arguing their businesses are complementary. On Sunday, it raised its stock-and-cash offer by 15 percent to $118.8 billion, or 70.73 billion pounds. That would be the richest acquisition ever among drugmakers and the third-biggest in any industry, according to figures from research firm Dealogic. AstraZeneca didnt take long to reject the new offer, its board arguing Pfizer is making an opportunistic attempt to acquire a transformed AstraZeneca, without reflecting the value of its exciting pipeline of experimental drugs.Temporary jobs on rise in todays shifting economyWASHINGTON While the U.S. economy has improved since the Great Recession ended five years ago, part-time and contract workers are filling many of the new jobs. Contract workers made up less than half of one percent of all U.S. employment in the 1980s but now account for 2.3 percent. Economists predict contract workers will play a larger role in the years ahead. They are a diverse army of laborers, ranging from janitors, security officers, home-care and food-service workers to computer programmers, freelance photographers and illustrators. Labor leaders and many economists worry. Contract workers have less job security and dont contribute to the economy through spending as much as permanent, full-time workers. Nor do they have the same job protections.Credit Suisse charged in tax evasion caseWASHINGTON The Justice Department on Monday charged Credit Suisse AG with helping wealthy Americans avoid paying taxes through offshore accounts, and a person familiar with the matter said the European bank has agreed to pay about $2.6 billion in penalties. The conspiracy charge was filed in a criminal information, which is a charging document that can only be filed with a defendants consent and which typically signals a guilty plea. The penalties will be paid to the Justice Department and to regulators, according to a person spoke on condition of anonymity because the guilty plea had not yet been announced.CEO of China drugmaker jumps to death amid probeBEIJING A Chinese drug company said its chief executive has jumped to his death, amid reports that he was under investigation for taking bribes.

The company has appointed an interim CEO and said that Lius death has no impact on its operations. The governments China News Service and the Communist Party newspaper Peoples Daily said Liu was under investigation on suspicion of taking bribes. The Chinese government has launched a sweeping investigation of drug companies as part of efforts to improve health care and rein in drug prices.FBI: BlackShades infected half-million computersNEW YORK Authorities said more than a half-million computers in over 100 countries were infected by sophisticated malware that lets cybercriminals remotely hijack a computer and its webcam. The announcement came as charges were announced Monday against nearly 100 people worldwide. Authorities said 97 people suspected of using or distributing the malicious software called BlackShades have been arrested in 16 countries, including the softwares owner, a 24-year-old Swedish man. The malware lets hackers steal personal information, intercept keystrokes and hijack webcams to secretly record computer users.

The entertainment company is near an all-time high as Frozen opens to big crowds in Japan and it hikes ticket prices at parks. Analysts are almost universally in support of the medical device makers acquisition of CFR Pharmaceuticals for nearly $3 billion. The telecommunications company will pay $48.5 billion for DirecTV in a headfirst dive toward Internet-delivered video. Despite heavily promoting its iconic soup brands, the foodmaker reported disappointing sales and cut its outlook for the year. Investors are not happy about the drugmakers categorical rejection of a fattened, $119 billion takeover offer from Pfizer. Another round of corporate M&A pushed stocks higher for a second-straight day Monday. Investors had two mega deals to digest: AT&T announced it was buying DirectTV for $48.5 billion and Abbott Laboratories said it was buying CFR Pharmaceuticals for $3 billion. 60 70 80 $90 FM MA AstraZenecaAZN Close: $70.64 -9.64 or -12.0% $46.87$82.68 Vol.: Mkt.

Associated PressStocks finished slightly higher on Monday, adding to the small gains the market carved out at the end of last week. A dearth of fresh economic data had many investors focusing on headline-grabbing corporate deals, including a $48.5 billion bid by AT&T to acquire satellite TV provider DirecTV and a joint venture between Johnson Controls and a Chinese company that will form the worlds largest maker of automotive interiors. The latest batch of deals is a good sign for the market and further illustrates that many companies have the financial ammunition and appetite to grow through acquisitions. Even so, much of the market remained in drift mode Monday, but still near the latest all-time high set by the Standard & Poors 500 index a week ago. Were seeing big deals this AT&T deal is big, said Marc Doss, regional chief investment officer for Wells Fargo Private Bank. But its not enough to drive us dramatically higher in the short run. The three major indexes were down in premarket trading as investors reacted to the AT&TDirecTV deal, which was announced late Sunday. The proposed deal would create the second-largest pay TV operator behind a combined Comcast-Time Warner Cable. But such a combination could face close scrutiny from the Federal Communications Commission and Department of Justice. When regular trading began, the S&P 500 and Nasdaq composite drifted into positive territory, while the Dow Jones industrial average lagged. AT&T and DirecTV opened lower and never recovered. AT&T ended down 36 cents, or 1 percent, at $36.38. DirecTV fell $1.53, or 1.8 percent, to $84.65. Word that AstraZeneca rejected rival drugmaker Pfizers latest takeover offer helped boost Pfizers shares 16 cents, or 0.5 percent, to $29.28. Pfizer has been courting AstraZeneca since January. It announced Sunday that it was ready to raise its stock-and-cash offer by 15 percent to $118.8 billion. By midmorning, major U.S. indexes had each captured small gains that would hold the rest of the day.

BusinessBRIEFS From wire reports
OPINION Page A8TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2014 Keep the Homosassa water towerIt now seems Homosassa and Old Homosassa are going to lose another part of their history. The demolition of the water tower on Yulee and Fishbowl Drive will be a great loss to this area. This water tower has been a landmark for people local and far, as a directional point. It has served people for many years with water. I attended the board meeting when they voted to tear down the tower. I asked where the money went that was budgeted to maintain the tower. From the answers I got, the money was used to pay off a debt so that they could borrow $2,000,000 for pipeline repairs on U.S. 19. My biggest problem with this whole decision is if they had the money, why didnt they make all the necessary repairs as needed all these years? Instead they let it go so long that to make repairs became too costly ($200,000). Dennis Siebert said to fix the water tower would be too costly and he couldnt see it viable since its no longer functionable. If we are no longer functionable, are you going to destroy us too? Dennis Siebert, Lora Sipos and Robert Juren showed no compassion for the people who pay their salaries. The words that provoked me the most were, This is a business decision. How can you measure the feelings and love that these people have, for the little bit that they have of their history? Dennis Siebert said, To take down the tower, it would cost $80,000. My suggestion is take that $80,000 and make the safe structural repairs and let the people of Homosassa keep their landmark and that part of their history.Nancy Lee Rushford HomosassaThanks Dr. Adari and staffI wanted to thank the Wound Center again for the great care I got, especially Dr. Adari and his staff. So professional and made me feel so comfortable and injected a little humor along with their caring and concern.Beverly Dea Beverly Hills CHICAGODemocracy can be cruel because elections deprive the demos of the delight of alibis and the comfort of complaining. Illinois voters have used many elections to make theirs the worst-governed state, with about $100 billion in unfunded public pension promises, and $6.7 billion in unpaid bills. The state is a stark illustration of prolonged one-party rule conducted by politicians subservient to government employees unions. A new Gallup poll shows that Illinois has the highest percentage 50 percent of residents who want to leave their state. If Illinois voters re-elect Gov. Pat Quinn, 65, they will reject Bruce Rauner, 58, who vows to change the states fundamental affliction its political culture. The states strongest civic tradition is of governors going to jail. Four of the last nine have done so. Lt. Gov. Quinn ascended to the governorship in 2009, because Gov. Rod Blagojevich, of fragrant memory, tried to sell the Senate seat Barack Obama vacated. In 2010, Quinn defeated a downstate social conservative by 32,000 votes out of 3.7 million cast. Quinns job approval today is about 35 percent. Rauner, born a few blocks from Wrigley Field, grew up in a Chicago suburb his father was an electrical engineer at Motorola, his mother was a nurse. He attended Dartmouth, earned a Harvard MBA and joined the private-equity firm GTCR, where he made enough money to buy his nine homes. When a reporter asked him if he is among the 1 percent, he cheerfully replied, Oh, Im probably .01 percent, an answer that was better arithmetic than politics. Rauner spent $6.5 million of his own in winning the Republican primary, partly because Democratic-aligned unions spent millions trying to pick Quinns opponent attacking Rauner and supporting one of his GOP rivals. Quinn is, as Winston Churchill reportedly said of an adversary, a modest man with much to be modest about. Hence Quinns campaign theme: Dont compare me to the Almighty, compare me to the alternative. Concerning social issues, which energize much of the Republican base but repel many suburban voters in the collar counties around Chicago, Rauner is impeccably prudent, meaning disengaged. Abortion, he says, is a tragedy best left to women, not government. Gay marriage? Let each state decide by referendum that particular contract between adults. Quinn, unable to work the war on women trope, must rely on contemporary liberalisms only other idea, rage against the rich. But this becomes awkward. Rauners support for more charter schools and school choice voucher programs is one reason why he has been endorsed by the Rev. James Meeks, pastor for 15,000 members of the South Sides Salem Baptist Church, Illinois largest black church. And one reason the teachers unions oppose him with ferocious disparagement of his wealth. Which is amusing. Since 2000, the Teachers Retirement System, Illinois largest pension program, has invested $120 million with GTCR and reaped an average annual return of 25 percent, much better than TRS other private-equity investments. For Karen Lewis, head of the Chicago Teachers Union, it suffices to say that Rauner is a millionaire capitalist. He replies, Teachers hired me for years. Public pension funds are by far the largest funders of private equity firms. Illinois population growth rate is the sixth lowest among the states and its 8.4 percent unemployment rate is exceeded only by Rhode Islands, another Democratic-dominated state, and Nevadas. Michigans unemployment rate, the Midwests second highest, is nearly a full point lower than Illinois. Bewildered liberals will say the states stagnation is despite Democrats having raised the corporate tax rate from 7.3 percent to 9.5 percent, and imposed a temporary income tax rate increase from 3 percent to 5 percent. Now, unsurprisingly, Quinn proposes making the temporary increase permanent. Two contiguous states with Republican governors Michigan and Indiana have cut corporate taxation. Cleanliness, says Rauner, quoting former Illinois Gov. Adlai Stevenson, is next to godliness, except in the Illinois legislature where it is next to impossible. Governors come and go in Springfield but state legislators linger and real power resides in the speaker of the House, Michael Madigan, who has been a legislator since Richard Nixon was president (1971). Rauner helped to finance the gathering of signatures to get term limits for state legislators on the November ballot, thereby energizing the huge majority that favors limits. Illinois voters can choose Rauner and term limits, or the acceleration of stagnation and the end of the pleasure of complaining. George Wills email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.

Williamson You may differ with my choice, but not my right to choose. David S. Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARDGerry Mulligan ....................................publisherMike Arnold ..............................................editorCharlie Brennan ........................managing editorCurt Ebitz ..................................citizen memberMac Harris ................................citizen memberRebecca Martin ........................citizen memberBrad Bautista ....................................copy chiefLogan Mosby ..............................features editor GOOD NEWS FOR COUNTY Gas plant a benefit to county Duke Energy has confirmed that the company plans to build a $1.5 billion gas-fueled electric-generating plant on property in northwest Citrus County, near the location of the existing Crystal River generating complex. This announcement is good news for the county, which has been hard-hit by the economic recession that essentially shut off new home construction and by the decision to close the nuclear power plant in the generating complex. According to Duke, permitting for the plant is still underway, but assuming that all necessary permits will be received, construction is expected to begin in early 2016. During construction, the project is expected to create approximately 600 to 700 temporary construction workers. When completed, the plant will have a permanent operating staff of between 40 and 75 employees and will add substantially to the county property tax base. Fuel for the plant will come from the Sabal Trail pipeline, which is planned to bring gas from Alabama to central Florida. At about the same time the new plant is completed, Duke plans to retire the oldest two coal-burning units at the Crystal River generating complex. This will leave the two newest coal-burning units on the site as the only non-gas fueled power generation in the company. These plants have been outfitted with current pollution control technology. The companys other coalburning units at the Suwannee Plant near Live Oak will be replaced with gasfired turbinegenerators that will come into service in 2016. While we are pleased the new plant will be in Citrus County, we continue to be concerned that the power company is placing so much reliance on a single fuel source for its electric generation. Although natural gas is a clean-burning fuel, its price can be subject to wide fluctuation, which has the potential to leave the company and its customers at the mercy of gas prices over which neither has control. However, since the company has made the decision to build gas-fueled generation, we are glad this major new generating plant will be in Citrus County. It will provide much needed economic stimulus from both construction of the plant and the pipeline and from the long term employment it will provide. This decision is a benefit to the county, and we welcome the project to our community. THE ISSUE:Duke confirms plans to build new gas plant in Citrus County.OUR OPINION:Plant will benefit the county.

There was not a handicapped cart available in the store and I had to go out to the car and a young man I believe his name was Rob went out and he said, Are you OK? And I said, Ive lost my wallet, and I was very upset. He got a cart for me; he went out to the car with me, helped me find my wallet and packed the car with the groceries. I just want them to know that they have some employees that are absolutely wonderful. Thank you, Rob.There goes the forestI just wanted to know if anybody knows whats going on with the forest theyre taking down on North Lecanto Highway in Beverly Hills? What a shame. The place looks terrible Beautiful forest was once there. Part of it was taken down two years ago and now theyre taking down more and the tractor has sat there for probably two weeks doing nothing after theyve taken down the forest. Is there a reason for this? Sprinkling in the rain I live in Citrus Hills, and according to my rain gauge weve had well over 4 inches of rain in the last week, yet when Im riding around Citrus Hills, I see sprinklers going, lawn sprinklers going, even in the pouring rain. The day after, hours after the rain, I see sprinklers going.American as apple pieI read with interest the person who criticized all the interest in the Marguerita Grill. If theyd ever been there, he would know it was and is and was and is and hopefully will be one of the most patriotic places to go to in the United States of America.

With the garden only in its second month, the church members dont know of the impact they will have in the community, but they have faith. This garden fits into the total ministry of the church, said George Mitchell, president of the churchs mens group. For five years, weve had a free breakfast on Tuesday mornings, and we have a ministry with the elementary school collecting shoes, clothes and school supplies. This church for years has tried to serve this community by bringing the love of God and making them aware that there are people who care about them. The church is having a community garden picnic on May 31, and church members will be going door to door through the neighborhood, inviting people to come. This is a huge step for our little church, said the Rev. Mary Gestrich. We are actively seeking how God is calling us in this community at this time. Gods purpose is to have an impact. Mitchell added that beyond helping others, the garden has helped the congregation as well. Its brought unity and togetherness, he said. I think that happens when you have a good purpose.

NATION& WORLD Page A10TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Thailands army declares martial lawBANGKOK Thailands army declared martial law in a surprise announcement before dawn Tuesday that it said was aimed at keeping the country stable after six months of sometimes violent political unrest. The military, however, denied a coup detat was underway. The move effectively places the army in charge of public security nationwide. It comes one day after the Southeast Asian countrys caretaker prime minister refused to step down and follows six months of anti-government demonstrations that have failed to oust the government. The army said in a statement it had taken the action to keep peace and order. An army official, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation, told The Associated Press this is definitely not a coup. This is only to provide safety to the people and the people can still carry on their lives as normal.Putin orders troops to return homeMOSCOW In what could be an attempt to ease tensions with the West and avoid more sanctions, President Vladimir Putin ordered Russian troops deployed near Ukraine to return to their home bases Monday. Putin also praised the launch of a dialogue between Ukraines government and its opponents even as fighting continued in parts of the country ahead of Sundays presidential election. The seemingly conciliatory approach suggested that Putin may believe he has achieved his key goal of maintaining Russian influence over eastern Ukraine without having to send in troops.Russian oligarch faces $4.5 billion Swiss divorceGENEVA A Swiss court has ordered a Russian billionaire to pay more than $4.5 billion to his exwife in what could become the biggest divorce settlement in history. In papers delivered Monday to both parties, the Geneva Tribunal of First Instance said Dmitry Rybolovlev, an owner of the French soccer club AS Monaco, must pay $4,509,375,184.80 to exwife Elena Rybolovleva of Geneva. The judgment also granted his ex-wife property worth $146 million in property in Gstaad, Switzerland, where the couple owned two swanky chalets. It awarded his ex-wife two other pieces of real estate in the ultra-wealthy area of Geneva known as Cologny, where the couple once lived together, but listed no value for either address. And it confirmed her custody of their 13-year-old daughter, Anna. Her lawyer Marc Bonnant called it the most expensive divorce in history, an unheard-of amount for Switzerland and for Russian oligarchs. World BRIEFS Associated PressWASHINGTON Accusing China of vast business spying, the United States charged five military officials on Monday with hacking into U.S. companies to steal vital trade secrets in a case intensifying already-rising tensions between the international economic giants. The Chinese targeted big-name American makers of nuclear and solar technology, stealing confidential business information, sensitive trade secrets and internal communications for competitive advantage, according to a grand jury indictment that the Justice Department said should be a national wake-up call about cyber intrusions. A companys success in the international marketplace should not be based on a sponsor governments ability to spy and steal business secrets, Attorney General Eric Holder declared at a news conference. The alleged targets were Alcoa World Alumina, Westinghouse Electric Co., Allegheny Technologies, U.S. Steel Corp., the United Steelworkers Union and SolarWorld. The indictment, which includes charges of trade-secret theft and economic espionage, was issued in Pittsburgh, where most of the companies are based. China denied it all. In a statement, the Foreign Ministry said the charges were based on fabricated facts and would jeopardize ChinaU.S. cooperation and mutual trust. China is steadfast in upholding cybersecurity, said the statement. The Chinese government, the Chinese military and their relevant personnel have never engaged or participated in cybertheft of trade secrets. The U.S. accusation against Chinese personnel is purely ungrounded and absurd. The charges underscore a longtime Obama administration goal to prosecute state-sponsored cyberthreats, which U.S. officials say they have grappled with for years. One government report said more than 40 Pentagon weapons programs and nearly 30 other defense technologies have been compromised by cyber intrusions from China. The cybersecurity firm Mandiant issued a report last year alleging links between a secret Chinese military unit and years of cyberattacks against U.S. companies.

The 80,000-seat indoor stadium hosted the Super Bowl, t he NBA finals, the World Cup, Wrestlemania, a papal visit and concerts by Elvis Presley, Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones. Nowa days, the venue is a shell of its former self, with its roof in tatters and a lack of electrical power that has left the stadiums innards dark and mold-covered. The Silverdomes current owner is determined to cash in before its too late, putting everything inside up for auction this week, starting tomorrow. Associated PressPORTLAND, Ore. A federal judge on Monday struck down Oregons voter-approved ban on gay marriage, saying it is unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge Michael McShane said the ban unconstitutionally discriminates against same-sex couples and ordered the state not to enforce it. State officials earlier refused to defend the constitutional ban in court. McShane joined judges in seven other states who have struck down gay marriage bans, though appeals are underway. Oregon state officials have said theyd be prepared to carry out same-sex marriages almost immediately, and couples lined up outside the county clerks office in Portland in anticipation of the McShanes decision. Laurie Brown and Julie Engbloom arrived early Monday at the Multnomah County Building to form the line for marriage licenses. The two have been a couple for 10 years. Engbloom proposed in April, when they celebrated their anniversary by climbing Smith Rock in Central Oregon. We always knew we wanted to spend our whole life together, Brown said. This opportunity has come, it feels right, everything has fallen into place. Four gay and lesbian couples brought the Oregon cases, arguing the states marriage laws unconstitutionally discriminate against them and exclude them from a fundamental right to marriage. Democratic Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum refused to defend the ban, saying there are no legal arguments that could support it in light of decisions last year by the U.S. Supreme Court. She sided with the couples, asking the judge to overturn the ban, and says she wont appeal. The judge denied a request by the National Organization for Marriage to defend the law on behalf of its Oregon members. A panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday refused the groups request for an emergency stay of that decision, allowing same-sex marriages to proceed. Gay rights groups previously said theyve collected enough signatures to force a statewide vote on gay marriage in November. But they said they would discard the signatures and drop their campaign if the court rules in their favor by May 23. The U.S. Supreme Court last year struck down the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, which barred the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriage. It determined the law improperly deprived gay couples of due process. In addition to Oregon, federal or state judges in Idaho, Oklahoma, Virginia, Michigan, Texas, Utah and Arkansas recently have found state same-sex marriage bans to be unconstitutional. Judges also have ordered Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee to recognize same-sex marriages from other states.

A woman trying to keep her family from learning she had dropped out of college called in bomb threats to a commencement ceremony at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut, police said Monday. Danielle Shea of Quincy, Massachusetts, was wearing a cap and gown when she was arrested Sunday. Hamden police said Shea left the college this year because of financial issues, including an unpaid tuition balance, but her mother continued to pay thousands of dollars she thought was for her daughters education. She was living off campus. Her mother thought she was going to school, Hamden police Capt. Ronald Smith said.Minnesota bans anti-bacterial soapMINNEAPOLIS Its widely used nationwide as a germ-killing ingredient in soaps, deodorants and even toothpaste, but its being banned in Minnesota. Gov. Mark Dayton on Friday signed a bill to make Minnesota the first state to prohibit the use of triclosan in most retail consumer hygiene products. The Minnesota House and Senate passed it earlier last week because of health and environmental concerns about the chemical. Triclosan is used in an estimated 75 percent of anti-bacterial liquid soaps and body washes sold across the United States.Chipotle: Please dont bring guns in our storesNEW YORK Chipotle is asking customers not to bring firearms into its stores after it said gun-rights advocates brought military-style assault rifles into one of its restaurants in Texas. In a statement Monday, the company said that the display of firearms in our restaurants has now created an environment that is potentially intimidating or uncomfortable for many of our customers. Last year, Starbucks Corp. also told customers that guns were no longer welcome in its cafes after it had to close a store in Newtown, Connecticut, to avoid a demonstration by gun-rights advocates.

The Rangers lead the best-of-seven Eastern Conference final 2-0 heading back to New York for Game 3 on Thursday and Game 4 on Sunday. St. Louis scored a day after he and his teammates attended the funeral of his mother, who died just before Mothers Day. The Rangers have rallied around the grieving veteran and have won five in a row. New Yorks Rick Nash also scored while Ryan McDonagh added a goal and an assist to give the defenseman six points in the opening two games of the series. Max Pacioretty scored for Montreal, which outshot New York 41-30. The Canadiens had Dustin Tokarski playing his first career NHL playoff game in goal in place of Price, the Olympic gold medalist who hurt his right knee in the series opener when Chris Kreider crashed into the net. Montreals worst fears were realized in the first period, which it dominated while falling behind 2-1. A long period of sustained pressure produced the first goal as Lundqvists clearing attempt went off Paciorettys skate and into the net at 6:14. But 17 seconds later, New York tied it as McDonagh swiped a puck toward the net from the point and saw it go in off Josh Gorges leg and the post. Tokarski had no chance as St. Louis wired a shot from the slot on a power play inside the post at 8:03 of the middle period.

On Monday the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner was cleared to wear the nasal strip he has worn all through a six-race winning streak that has set him up for a chance at horse racings 12th Triple Crown. California Chrome cleared to wear nasal strip for Belmont Stakes Associated PressNEW YORK California Chrome beat out an idiosyncratic racing rule by a nose. The colt is back on track for his Triple Crown try after an only-in-New York equipment ban appeared ready to put a kink in his Triple Crown try at the Belmont Stakes. The Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner was cleared to wear the nasal strip he has worn all through a sixrace winning streak that has set him up for a chance at horse racings 12th Triple Crown. New York racetracks have a rule prohibiting any equipment not specifically approved by stewards, and nasal strips were not on their list. A statement from the New York Racing Association and the states Gaming Commission on Monday said the tracks three stewards unanimously agreed to lift the ban. The strip worn by California Chrome during his six-race winning streak is thought to assist airflow through the nostrils something that should come in handy June 7 for Belmonts grueling run. I think it opens up his air passage and gives him that little extra oomph that he needs, especially going a mile and a half, trainer Art Sherman said. Any time you can have a good air passage that means a lot for these thoroughbreds.

Thats the choice facing NFL owners when they vote today on the site of the 2018 Super Bowl, choosing among New Orleans, Indianapolis and Minneapolis. Each city has hosted the big game, albeit just once for Indy and Minny. New Orleans has staged 10 Super Bowls, tied with South Florida for the most. Most recently, the 2013 game was delayed 38 minutes by a blackout at the Superdome. Despite that power problem, New Orleans is considered a favorite to be chosen by the 32 owners as the city celebrates its 300th year. A three-quarters majority is required for passage. Saints owner Tom Benson recently had minor knee surgery, but the 86-year-old Benson is expected to attend the meetings. Also planning to be there is Colts owner Jim Irsay, who will take part in league business for the first time since his arrest for having $29,000 in cash and bottles of prescription drugs in his car. Irsay has been undergoing treatment and the owners meetings would be Irsays first public appearance since the arrest. Only the Vikings will present a brand new stadium in their bid, a $1 billion indoor facility scheduled to open in 2016. Were going to celebrate winter. And we should, because we do it well better than anyone, said Richard Davis, cochair of the Minneapolis bid committee. Were going to talk to the owners about how its about time that the NFL brought Americas game around the country, like a caravan, and started taking it out from the Southern states and bring it around to the rest of the world.

Associated PressATLANTA Freddie Freeman and Justin Upton homered to help Mike Minor win his second consecutive start, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Milwaukee Brewers 9-3 Monday night. Pinch-hitter Ryan Doumit also went deep for Atlanta in a matchup of first-place teams. The Braves, who had lost 12 of 18, never trailed in winning their second straight game. Atlanta began the night with the fewest runs in the majors. But the Braves banged out 15 hits and improved to 18-5 when hitting a home run. Minor (2-2) gave up two runs and five hits with five strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings. Ryan Braun and Khris Davis homered for the Brewers, who have lost three straight and four of six. Braun also threw out a runner at the plate from right field. Wily Peralta (4-3) allowed nine hits, a season-high four walks and three runs two earned with five strikeouts in five innings. The right-hander began the night 1-1 with a 1.29 ERA in three starts this month. Freeman led off the third with his ninth homer to make it 3-0. Davis lost his glove over the leftfield fence on Freemans opposite-field shot. A fan picked up the glove off a ledge between the fence and the seats and tossed it back to Davis after Freeman rounded the bases. The Braves broke open a onerun game in the eighth, scoring five times off reliever WeiChung Wang to make it 9-3. Doumit hit a solo shot, Uptons 11th homer was a two-run drive, and Atlanta got RBI singles from Andrelton Simmons and Ramiro Pena. After Wang needed 40 pitches to get two outs, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke brought in Lyle Overbay, a career first baseman, off the bench to pitch. The 37-year-old Overbay pitched for the first time in his 1,497 major league games, retiring Doumit on a popup.American League Indians 5, Tigers 4, 10 inn.CLEVELAND Michael Brantley homered with two outs in the 10th inning off Al Alburquerque, giving the Cleveland Indians a 5-4 win over the drowsy Detroit Tigers.

Scott Atchison (1-0) pitched a perfect 10th, retiring Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez for the first two outs. Detroits J.D. Martinez hit a pinch-hit homer in the ninth to tie it 4-all, but the Tigers couldnt muster more magic in extra innings.

Chicago White Sox slugger Jose Abreu leads the league in home runs and RBIs, and he might not even be the front-runner. Masahiro Tanaka has been just what the New York Yankees were hoping for when they signed the Japanese right-hander in the offseason. Hes 6-0 with a 2.17 ERA entering tonights start at Wrigley Field against the Chicago Cubs. Abreu went on the disabled list over the weekend with an ankle injury, so hell need to return to health to keep up his impressive production. The 27-year-old Abreu would be among the oldest rookie of the year winners if he ends up with the award, and Tanaka turns 26 in November. Both had experience in Cuba and Japan before making their major league debuts this season. Although it may seem odd to compare older players like Abreu and Tanaka with some of the games other top rookies, that precedent was established a while ago in the award voting. Ichiro Suzuki turned 28 in 2001, the year he swept the AL MVP and rookie of the year awards after coming over from Japan. A player arriving from overseas may sometimes be in his prime, age-wise, but he still faces challenges of his own. The U.S. players that are playing in the minors, they have a better understanding of what the major leagues are going to be like because they see them on TV, theyve been around, Suzuki said through a translator. When youre coming from another place, you dont know about the major leagues as much. You can look at it that way, too. Sure people have done well in other places and come here. Its the first time that you actually play in the big leagues, so maybe thats something people may not think about. The first rookie of the year, Jackie Robinson, was 28 when he won the award the year he broke baseballs color barrier. The oldest winner, according to STATS, was 32-year-old Sam Jethroe in 1950. Here are five things to watch around the majors this week: FIELDER RETURNS?: Detroit hosts Texas for a four-game series starting Thursday, which was supposed to be Prince Fielders return to Motown after the Tigers traded him to the Rangers for Ian Kinsler in the offseason. But Fielders consecutive games streak ended Saturday at 547 because of a stiff neck, and it remains to be seen how soon hell be back. ON A ROLL: Cincinnati righthander Johnny Cueto has gone at least seven innings in every start this season, and he has yet to allow more than two runs in a game. Hell take the mound tonight in Washington against Doug Fister and the Nationals. MOVING ON: Jose Fernandezs elbow injury was a jolt for the Marlins, but hes not Miamis only promising young pitcher. Anthony DeSclafani, the organizations minor league pitcher of the year last season, allowed two runs in six innings in his major league debut against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday. Hes scheduled to start again tonight against Philadelphia. SLIPPING: After charming Pittsburgh with its run to the playoffs in 2013, the Pirates are seven games under .500. Pittsburghs starters are 5-19, and the bullpen has blown 10 saves. The Pirates host Baltimore and Washington this week. BIG SERIES: The San Francisco Giants lead the NL West by three games over Colorado and by five over the high-priced Los Angeles Dodgers. The Giants will try to extend that margin when they head to Colorado for a three-game series with the Rockies that begins tonight. Madison Bumgarner starts the opener for San Francisco.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Over the past two years, these teams have met 15 times with George has usually drawing the seemingly impossible task of defending James. Hes seen it happen up close as James got past him for the winning shot in Game 1 of last years conference finals and from afar, such as last week when James almost singlehandedly sent Miami past Brooklyn with 49 points in Game 4. He (James) will shoulder everything. I think hes going to be much more aggressive with the ball, George said. I think hes going to be looking to make more plays, looking to shoot more shots and really looking to get guys going. Its going to be a tough night for me, but thats part of the league. James ability to do it all is a big reason the Heat havent lost back-to-back playoff games since the 2012 conference finals against Boston, a span of 39 postseason games, though that wasnt the focus Monday. The Pacers embrace the challenge of trying to take a 2-0 lead. If they can protect their home court Tuesday, theyll have a 2-0 lead over the two-time defending champs when the series shifts to Miami for Games 3 and 4. Miami has a lot to work on. In Game 1, the Heat made just 6 of 23 3-pointers, allowed the Pacers to shoot 51.5 percent from the field, grabbed just four offensive rebounds and sent the Pacers to the free-throw line 37 times. All-Star center Roy Hibbert, who had struggled from February through April before waking up against Washington, continued to hurt the Heat inside as he did last year. The Heat were so bad, they never led and never even had a chance to tie the score after the first 40 seconds. We dont really care about whats happened in the past, Spoelstra said. We understand the urgency of a response for tomorrow night. Obviously, James wants to make sure theres no repeat Tuesday night. We cleaned a lot of things up today and were ready for tomorrow, James said. You just go in with the mindset that its a must-win and we go at it tomorrow. What else can the Heat do? Spoelstra may have provided a glimpse into one possible adjustment when he replaced Shane Battier with Udonis Haslem to start the second half. That change was intended to give Miami more heft inside against Hibbert, David West and the rest of Indianas big bodies. Spoelstra wouldnt say whether he would replace Battier with Haslem in the starting lineup or whether center Greg Oden might be activated in Game 2. Miami, too, is trying to defy recent history. The home team has eight straight and 13 of the past 15 in this rivalry, which is one reason the Pacers placed such great emphasis on earning the No. 1 seed. But George knows its going to take a lot more than home-court advantage to contend with James & Co. after a loss. We know were playing against the champions, the two-time champions, George said. We know theyre going to come out and make adjustments. Everything we did (Sunday) has got to be that much more in Game 2 in order for us to move on.

The city has a history of staging big events and will host the Final Four next spring at Lucas Oil Stadium. The NFL always has favored bringing its title game to New Orleans, and the appeal of warmer weather in Louisiana than in the other bidding cities could be a factor. Next years game is in Arizona, and the 50th Super Bowl will be in the San Francisco Bay Area. The 2017 game is set for Houston. Also on the agenda, although no vote is certain, will be expanding the playoffs from 12 teams to 14. That proposal was discussed at the league meetings in Orlando in March. Commissioner Roger Goodell has said its still possible such a change could happen this year if it is voted on and passed in Atlanta. More likely, 2015 would be the target date for expanded playoffs. Were being very deliberate about it, Goodell said. We want to make sure we do it in the right way. Goodell also has been championing improved workplace environments in the wake of the Miami Dolphins bullying scandal. Owners will talk about that issue on Tuesday. You never want to see any story that reflects on that we dont have the right workplace environment, Goodell said. Weve redoubled our efforts to make sure we provide the right environment ... for everybody in the NFL. OWNERSContinued from Page B1 Other states allow equine nasal strips while racing, and even some jockeys wear them, as do humans in other sports. American marathon star Meb Keflezighi can be seen sporting one during his winning run in Boston last month. California Chrome doesnt need to go 26.2 miles to reach racing immortality, though. Just 1-1/2 will do. Racing hasnt had a Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978, and the sports popularity has waned in the nearly four decades since. But it gets a boost every time a horse heads to the Big Apple with a Triple Crown on the line. Sherman raised the possibility his horse wouldnt run in the Belmont if barred from using a nasal strip, but the problem was solved in about 24 hours, clearing the way for big crowds and plenty of betting at Belmont in less than three weeks. Two years ago, Doug ONeill trained Ill Have Another to victories in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness with the colt wearing a nasal strip. New York officials told ONeill his horse couldnt wear one in the Belmont. The issue became moot when Ill Have Another was scratched the day before the race because of a leg injury. This Belmont Stakes is shaping up as a possible 11-horse race, including two newcomers to the Triple Crown trail: Commissioner, sixth in the Arkansas Derby; and Tonalist, the Peter Pan Stakes winner. Other probables include the secondthrough fifth-place finishers in the Kentucky Derby: Commanding Curve, Danza, Wicked Strong and Samraat. Intense Holiday, 12th in the Derby, is on the list. Three Preakness runners could return: Ride On Curlin (second), Social Inclusion (third) and Kid Cruz (eighth).

The Southeastern Conference announced Monday the non-division opponents each team will face through 2025. Under the format of the eight-game conference schedule, each team plays all of its six divisional rivals plus one permanent foe and one rotating opponent from the opposite division each year. The Auburn-Florida series is one of several matchups taking a hiatus. The Tigers and Gators wont meet in the regular season until 2019 in Gainesville. Theyll meet again in 2024 at Auburn. The 2015 rotating interdivisional matchups include Alabama at Georgia, Arkansas at Tennessee, Auburn at Kentucky, Mississippi at Florida, LSU at South Carolina, Mississippi State at Missouri and Texas A&M at Vanderbilt. The 2014 conference schedules were released last year.NBA charges Sterling, sets up June 3 hearingNEW YORK The NBA charged Donald Sterling on Monday with damaging the league and its teams with his racist comments, setting up a June 3 hearing after which owners could vote to terminate his ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers. The league also said the banned owner has engaged in other conduct that has impaired its relationship with fans and merchandising partners. Sterling was banned for life and fined $2.5 million by Commissioner Adam Silver after the release of a recording in which he made racist remarks. He has until May 27 to respond to the charge, and the right to appear at the hearing and make a presentation before the board of governors. Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor, the board chairman, will preside over the hearing, which is planned for two days before the start of the NBA Finals. If three-fourths of the other 29 owners vote to sustain the charge, Sterling will be forced to sell the team he has owned since 1981.Duncan helps Spurs rout Thunder in series openerSAN ANTONIO Tim Duncan scored 27 points and the San Antonio Spurs took advantage of Serge Ibakas absence to dominate the paint, beating the Oklahoma City Thunder 122-105 on Monday night in the opener of the Western Conference finals. Manu Ginobili added 18 points and Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green had 16 points each. Tony Parker did not appear limited by a hamstring injury, scoring 14 points and having 12 asssists. Kevin Durant scored 28 points and Russell Westbrook added 25. Oklahoma Citys remaining starters, Nick Collison, Thabo Sefolosha and Kendrick Perkins combined to score five points. The Thunder struggled without the defensive presence of Ibaka, who will miss the remainder of the postseason after suffering a calf injury in the Thunders series clincher against the Los Angeles Clippers.From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS
NBAs worst teams look for lottery win Associated PressNEW YORK They lost often, as in 67 times for the Milwaukee Bucks. Sometimes they lost always, as in 26 straight times for the Philadelphia 76ers. Now the NBAs biggest losers have a chance for a huge win. The draft lottery is tonight, a night some teams appeared to be aiming toward for months during a season featuring plenty of talking about tanking. The winner gets the No. 1 pick in next months draft, when an Andrew Wiggins or Jabari Parker might make all of this seasons misery worth it. Its a potential make-orbreak night for some teams, which is why a program about the results of a random drawing ends up as the prime-time lead-in for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals. To me its part of the mystery and part of the enjoyment in seeing whos right, whos wrong, Commissioner Adam Silver said recently. Will these perceived great players coming into the draft really be in a position to turn around teams? So its part of the fun. The Bucks and 76ers sure are enjoying it, and trying to get their fans in on the good times. Theres a viewing party in Milwaukee where all fans get a ping pong ball. The 76ers were giving away a trip to New York. Silver is aware of the tanking speculation and uneasy that fans might think NBA teams were willing to take their money without caring if they win the games. But he understands that teams sometimes need to rebuild, and that may mean going straight to the bottom if they think thats the quickest route to the top. The jury is out on the strategy and I think that makes for good copy as well. Im intrigued, Silver said. I read both sides of it in terms of, is that the right way to build a team, what impact does it have on culture, can you rebuild a team in two years, can you rebuild in three years, whats the track record of teams trying to do that, Silver added, and I am mindful that in a league of 30 teams that were also selling competition on a nightly basis and I dont want to create a sense that we want to subject fans to subpar performances because dont worry, its going to be great three years from now. The Bucks have a 25 percent chance to win and give incoming new ownership a great welcoming gift. Philadelphia (19.9 percent), Orlando (15.6) and Utah (10.4) have the next-best chances, with longtime powerhouses Boston and the Lakers behind them after rare poor seasons. But this was a season where for some teams, a job well done meant doing their jobs poorly. After a forgettable draft in 2013, this one is considered much more promising, good enough that some teams who knew they werent going to win decided they would be better off if they lost. Philadelphia owner Joshua Harris even called his teams season a huge success after its 19-63 record included a 26-game skid that matched the longest in NBA history. The Sixers may have topped the list, but they were hardly alone among suspected tankers this season. I thought it was pretty crazy that teams were doing that. But theyre saying this is going to be one of the toughest draft classes since 2003, Indiana University star Noah Vonleh said. That class produced LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Carmelo Anthony, so if this draft really is that good, its hard to blame any teams for trying to get to the top of it. The fact that so many did has sparked new calls to change the lottery process so as to not invite tanking. Silver said it will be looked at over the summer, but as the lottery turns 30, there isnt a perfect idea for how to run it. I think for us, weve got to make sure we understand whether theres an aberration here because of the perception of a particular draft class, whether indeed there is a better way of do it, Silver said, because of course at the same time you want to properly align incentives, but the very purpose of the draft is to help the worst teams restock.B4TUESDAY, MAY20, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS 000I8LH 9301 W.

Tiger Woods still doesnt know when hell return. For a while, he didnt know whether he would return at all. Woods said Monday his back injury became so debilitating this year it caused him to doubt his ability to play golf again. Forget about playing golf at the highest level. I couldnt get out of bed, Woods said. I was certainly doubtful at that point. Whats it going to feel like? Am I going to be pain free? Am I going to be able to actually do this again, where I can to get out of bed, and go out there and play with my kids and play golf? All those things were up in the air. Woods said the doubt was erased after microdiscectomy surgery March 31. He said the procedure, which relieved pain from a pinched nerve, provided immediate relief, although he said theres still no timetable for his return to golf or even for taking a full swing. As of now, he remains limited to chipping and putting. Its not going to be up to me whether I play or not, its going to be up to my docs, Woods said. Obviously, I want to play now. Speaking at Congressional Country Club in his role as host of next months Quicken Loans National, Woods even joked that he wished he could join reporters on the course for their media day rounds even though I dont like to play with you guys. But he offered no hint that he might be anything more than an onlooker for the Quicken Loans tournament on June 26-29 or at the U.S. Open at Pinehurst two weeks earlier. Hes already missed the Masters for the first time. To hear Woods, known for unyielding resolve, give voice to doubts is certainly unusual. But this injury is different from those he has endured before. He said rehab has been tedious and its a challenge simply not to join in when his children want to play sports. Ill tell you what, he said, I am damn good at video games. When Woods does return, hell resume his pursuit of Jack Nicklaus record of 18 major victories. Woods, 38, sounded as if the surgery has given him a new lease to keep playing for a good while. I would like to, as all athletes, go out on my own terms, Woods said. And ultimately I want to continue playing at an elite level as long as I deem I want to do it. For some guys its in their 60s and 70s, and other guys its in their 40s and 50s. But prior to the surgery, I didnt think I would have much of a playing career if I felt like this. ... Now that Ive had the procedure, Im excited about what the prospects hold, and if Im able to feel this way, Im excited about my career. Im able to do what I want to do for as long as I want to. Associated PressTigerWoods speaks Monday at a Quicken Loans National PGA tournament media day news conference at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md. Woods said his back injury was so debilitating that it caused him to doubt whether he would play golf again. While the surgery he had March 31 erased those doubts, he still has no timetable for his return. Which NBA team will have its ping pong ball drawn into the No. 1 position for the upcoming draft when the lottery is held tonight in New York City? The Milwaukee Bucks have the best chance at winning the lottery at 25 percent, followed by Philadelphia (19.9 percent) and Orlando (15.6 percent).Chronicle illustration

If removable is okay, then a partial denture may be the answer. Just be aware that there will likely be clasps that show, it may pack food under it and you may perceive movement of it when chewing. I have made many of these with great success. You just need to know its limitations. If permanent is the way you want to go, then either a bridge or implant is the answer for you. Remember that the implant route entails at least one surgery and potentially more. It will also take longer, and has more steps. There are a few circumstances where the implant route may be the best choice. If the available bone for its placement is present, it makes the implant route more attractive. If the adjacent teeth have no need for restoration or they are virgin teeth the implant method is ideal. When there is no tooth behind the tooth that needs replacing the implant is the only solution for a permanent restoration. If the adjacent teeth will need restoration anyway, you might consider the bridge over the implant, especially if cost is a consideration. If there are time constraints, the bridge may work to your advantage as well. In addition, if you prefer to avoid surgery, a bridge may be more attractive to you. It is important to remember that each circumstance is unique and that a discussion with your dentist can help clear up your decision process. As I have said in the past, it usually becomes clear once I talk with a patient. If you are honest with your dentist, and he or she reciprocates, the ideal choice for you will be clear. If things remain confusing it may be time to seek out the opinion of someone else. I hope this has helped clear up this decision making process for those of you who may be confused.

Dr. Frank VasciminiSOUND BITES I have had a few people write to me regarding when to use an implant to replace a missing tooth, and when to use a bridge or a partial denture. I surmise that this is a result of one of the recent columns that spoke about this. I will try to address all of the questions in the emails that I received with one column. Here are my thoughts regarding this issue. What to do with your gap:
We have all heard the numbers and we know the statistics. We are now living longer today. But quality is still an issue. Some of us are living longer, but not necessarily quality lives. Here are a few tips on how to live long and healthy lives. 1. Exercise your brain by learning something new or doing something challenging. It doesnt matter how old you are. Push yourself away from the TV. Read a book. Play games such as crossword. Throw that calculator away and do some adding and subtracting and dividing and multiplying in your head. If you have to check, go ahead and use some paper. But try doing it without a calculator. Do these things and worry less, because you may not be aware, but there is a strong correlation between worrying and Alzheimers disease. 2. Have a connection with friends and family. People that isolate themselves and become loners tend to be sicker. There is no way to test or measure the importance of having loving and friendly relationships with friends and family. It brings many rewards. 3. See your doctor as recommended. Regularly scheduled visits and screening can catch problems in early phases and avoid major problems down the road. I know it can be an inconvenience sometimes, but it is well worth it. 4. Balance. This includes eating the right foods and also the right amounts. Body fitness and exercise are likewise important. Getting the right amount of rest can reduce your stress and have a healthy sex life if physically possible. Research has suggested that it is a major de-stressor, especially for men. 5. Last but not least, try to see some humor in life. So much sadness exists in our world but it is so important to rise above that sometimes to keep ourselves healthy and happy. European studies suggested that key body chemicals are influenced directly by sadness, which studies suggest are strongly correlated to heart disease.

C2TUESDAY, MAY20, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEHEALTH& LIFE An article in the February issue of the medical journal JAMA Pediatrics describes a potential hazard linked to the use of acetaminophen (known as Tylenol in the United States or paracetamol in most of the world.) Researchers in Denmark studied more than 64,000 Danish women during pregnancy and followed them and their children for more than 15 years. Careful analysis of the data revealed a previously unsuspected linkage between use of this painkiller during pregnancy, and a subsequent diagnosis of AttentionDeficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in their children. Among other things, the women were asked at the end of each trimester of their pregnancy if they had taken this painkiller any time during that trimester. Overall, 55 percent of the women took acetaminophen at some point during their pregnancy. When women took the painkiller during pregnancy, their children were 29 percent more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD later than was the case for kids whose mothers took none. The risk increased to 63 percent when the medication was taken during the second or third trimesters. The researchers were careful to say that while this study shows an association, it does not prove that taking acetaminophen in pregnancy causes ADHD in the children. However, the association is statistically strong, and it adds to growing evidence that acetaminophen may influence brain development in the growing fetus. Still, this is the first study to show a linkage between taking this painkiller during pregnancy and ADHD. An accompanying editorial cautioned against changing medication practice on the basis of this single article. Much more research is clearly needed in this field. In the meantime, my view is that its wise to minimize taking unnecessary medications at any time. This is especially true during pregnancy because the growing fetus is exquisitely sensitive to the effects of any chemical. Acetaminophen was first synthesized about 150 years ago, but its use as an overthe-counter (OTC) drug to treat fever or pain began in 1959. Its been regarded as safe in recommended dosages, but liver toxicity has been recognized, even with small overdoses. It is the leading cause of acute liver failure in adults. Because of this, in 2009 a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory committee recommended restrictions to its use. The FDA is taking steps to reduce maximum allowable dosages, and manufacturers are expected to complete this process this year. Pain tolerance varies from person to person, and nobody can predict the pain threshold for another person. Still, when it comes to selfmedication, for most individuals, its wise to take the least amount of medication necessary to control mild or moderate pain. (Note: This does not apply in cases of major surgery or advanced illness that require physician management.) My personal practice is to tolerate mild or moderate pain in preference to taking any painkiller that treats symptoms without changing outcomes. Although at age 78, Im subject to the routine aches and pains of life, I seldom take a Tylenol tablet or any other painkilling medication perhaps once a year or less. This has been true for many years. In my view, its better to tolerate some pain than to risk toxic or adverse side-effects of medication. The benefit of a clear, medication-free mind is priceless!Ed Dodge, M.D., MPH, is a retired physician now living in Texas. Visit his website, www.thepower oflifestyle.com. Drug during pregnancy linked to ADHD in childrenHazardous link discovered Dr. Ed DodgePOWER OF LIFESTYLE Dr. Denis GrilloEAR, NOSE & THROAT Too many red blood cells hurt Mr. Smith went to see his primary care doctor for his annual physical examination. He had frequent headaches and his face was red. His doctor did a complete blood count, a blood test. This showed that he had too many red blood cells. He was referred to me for further evaluation and management. His CBC also showed a mild increase in white blood cells and platelets (clotters of blood) too. He was a nonsmoker. Since smokers have damaged lungs, they also have higher RBCs. I did specialized blood tests for a JAK-2 gene and it was positive. This, along with the clinical picture, is diagnostic of polycythemia Vera. This is a mutation that causes polycythemia Vera. It is thought to affect a protein switch that tells the cells to grow. Most people with polycythemia Vera have this mutation. In polycythemia Vera, the blood becomes thickened with too many red blood cells. The number of white blood cells and platelets may also increase. These extra blood cells may collect in the spleen and cause it to swell. The increased number of red blood cells or platelets in the blood can cause bleeding problems, and make clots form in blood vessels. This can increase the risk of stroke or heart attack. The risk is especially higher in patients who are older than 65 years or who have a history of blood clots. In addition to stroke or heart attack, it can cause blockage of an artery in your lungs (pulmonary embolism) or in a vein deep within a muscle (deep vein thrombosis). It can also cause enlarged spleen or stomach ulcers. In extremely late stage, it can progress into acute leukemia (blood cancer) or scar tissue in bone marrow called myelofibrosis. The most common treatment is phlebotomy drawing a certain amount of blood out of your veins. This reduces the number of blood cells and decreases your blood volume, making it easier for your blood to function properly. People older than 60, or those with high WBC or platelet counts, should be considered for a pill called Hydrea. These patients should also be on a baby aspirin a day. Overall, untreated patients carry a bad prognosis. With treatment, patients usually live a normal life for a long time life expectancy is more than 10 years. My patient is started on phlebotomy. I did his bone marrow biopsy and I will add Hydrea to his treatment. He is taking a baby aspirin a day. He is already feeling better.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Several studies have linked the risk of recurrence with being overweight, and I have encouraged my readers who are breast cancer survivors to do their best to maintain a normal Body Mass Index. Now, data suggest that the size of your waist is also strongly associated with a higher risk of developing breast cancer for the first time as well. In a recent study, larger waist circumference, along with an elevated Body Mass Index, has been shown to correlate with an increased risk of postmenopausal breast cancer. This study was recently published in Cancer Causes & Control. As I noted above, for years we have known that a high Body Mass Index increases a womans chance of breast cancer recurrence, and we have also known for years that a high Body Mass Index is also a risk factor for postmenopausal breast cancer. However, in this study, researchers examined whether a larger waist circumference is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer, even when a person may have a relatively normal Body Mass Index. That is, a woman with a pot-belly but low levels of body fat in other parts of the body who still falls within the normal range for Body Mass Index could have an increased risk of breast cancer. To evaluate this, data was analyzed for 28,965 postmenopausal women who reported weight and waist circumference on a questionnaire in 1997, and were followed for a median of almost 12 years. In this group, the researchers identified 1,088 cases of invasive breast cancer during follow-up. A larger waist circumference was associated with an increased risk of breast cancer, meaning that for every extra 10 cm increase in waist circumference, the risk of breast cancer increased by 13 percent. To bring this into perspective, I have often discussed weight loss with patients, and have explained to them that you cannot simply look at your weight from day to day and measure whether or not your Body Mass Index is dropping. Very often, with exercise, one will burn away fat and increase their muscle mass, and since muscle weighs more than fat, initially many who exercise will notice a drop in their weight, only to plateau at a certain point. This is why one of the best and easiest ways to track your progress is to just look at your belt, and pay attention to the fact that you are having to tighten that belt more and more and you exercise and become healthier.Dr. Joseph C.

NEWS NOTES It was a most delightful afternoon at the Sugarmill Woods Golf and Country Club with a father and daughter duo, Richard Flury and Danielle Downey, entertaining at the annual PEO (Professional Education Organization) Lets Do Lunch fundraiser. The local HL PEO chapter awards scholarships to women seeking higher education degrees in the United States, as well as those outside the U.S. who come to the states in order to receive training which they can apply to improve the conditions in their own country. President Sally Moore welcomed the gathering of members and guests and Doris Moore offered the invocation. Sheet music centerpieces adorned the luncheon tables and it was showtime with Danielle at the keyboard and Richard opening with Try to Remember. It was readily evident that Flury enjoys acting and singing with his talented daughter. A 35-year entertainer, he is an eight-time Crystal Award winner. He has appeared in such classic plays as The Sound of Music, Kismet and The Fantasticks. He is a former music director at St. Benedict Church in Crystal River and a former drama and music teacher at Lecanto High School. Presently, he is music director at St. Timothy Lutheran Church in Crystal River. Danielle also directs and accompanies a variety of shows, including Cabaret, Chicago, Carousel and Godspell. Onstage she has appeared as Laurie in Oklahoma and Louisa in The Fantasticks. An accomplished musician, she plays piano, flute and cello. A composer as well, she has performed her pieces throughout the U.S. Together, the duos nostalgic pieces included Chattanooga Choo Choo with Dinner in the diner, nothing could be finer and a certain person will be waitin at the station. Richard performed Aint Misbehavin with a bit of scat singing as Danielle hummed along, Just savin my love for you. The hauntingly beautiful Dream had us lost down memory lane with, Dream when youre feeling blue, dream and it might come true, and Things never are as bad as they seem. Recalling the World War II era, they performed G.I. Jive with Coming in on a wing and a prayer, the unforgettable As Time Goes By, from the movie starring Bogart and Bacall, with Moonlight and love songs never out of style, still the same old story, the world will always welcome lovers, as time goes by. From A Little Night Music, Danielle sang Send in the Clowns, and Richard, The Impossible Dream. Together, they performed So In Love, with The stars filled the sky, so in love with you am I, in love with the night mysterious. Award-winning Rodgers and Hammersteins South Pacific, Some Enchanted Evening, with Some enchanted evening you will see a stranger across a crowded room, somehow you know, youll see her again and again, the sound of her laughter will sing in your dreams. From Porgy and Bess, a jazz opera, we heard Summertime, made famous by Billie Holiday and recorded 33,000 times by several artists. Richard and Danielle chose I Dreamed a Dream and Bring Him Home from Les Miserables. Their medley from Richards high school years included Carousel pieces, Youll Never Walk Alone and If I Loved You. Thank you, Richard and Danielle, for entertaining us so very lovingly.Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community.

TUESDAY, MAY20, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Brigham Young said, Silence may be golden, but can you think of a better way to entertain someone than to listen to him? Sometimes at the bridge table, silence is golden. If your side is going to be outbid, you often do best to pass throughout, because every call gives information to the opposing declarer. But, of course, sometimes you will not know that you are going to be outbid. And aggressive competition might push your opponents into the wrong contract. In this deal, West had a perfectly normal opening bid, but it helped South with the play in four hearts. West began with three rounds of clubs. What did declarer do after he had ruffed Easts queen? Souths takeout double, followed by the oneheart rebid, promised a good 17 to 19 high-card points. North took a shot at game, knowing that his partner would be able to place the cards accurately. Someone who paid no attention to the auction would cross to dummy with a trump and run the diamond queen. But West would win and return anything but a club. Eventually declarer would lose a spade trick to go down one. West is almost certain to have the diamond king for his opening bid. So declarer, who needs hearts 3-2, draws a couple of rounds of trumps. Then he should cash the diamond ace and play another diamond. If West ducks, South can afford a spade loser. And if West wins the trick, declarer takes two spades, five hearts and three diamonds.

(N) (Live) MotherMother Dear Annie: Six years ago, I gave up my job to take care of my mother, while my siblings went off and had fun. After Mom passed, I still had the house to clean and laundry to do. I never asked for a dime. But as my own health has declined, everyone continues to treat me like a servant. My father and brother both say demeaning things to me. My sister-inlaw is a know-it-all and makes it clear that she thinks Im an idiot. My son-inlaw makes me the butt of his jokes. They all behave as if I am nothing. I am 60 years old and tired of this. All I can think of is getting away from every single one of them. Should I? J. Dear J.: Is there a reason you must continue living in your mothers house? Your relatives treat you like a servant because you permit it. Its OK to say no to them. If you can find any kind of job that pays a salary, even part time, we highly recommend you start putting money aside and make a life for yourself that you can enjoy. You dont have to cut off contact with your family. You simply need them to see that you no longer will tolerate such poor treatment. Dear Annie: I read the letter from Omaha, Neb., whose wife is grossly overweight. He says he wants to grow old with her. You said, What woman could resist that? My wife of 28 years, thats who. My wife says she doesnt want to outlive me because she would be too devastated by the loss (unless the stress of watching her eat and drink herself to death gives me a heart attack). She has stated that she doesnt really care about her weight, lack of exercise or eating habits, so if she dies, its all for the better. She eats voraciously, bingedrinks until she nearly passes out, and doesnt exercise beyond getting out of bed to sit in her recliner. She is out of breath after climbing five steps. It can take her several minutes to get into the car. She also smokes. She has no strength or stamina, plus she has back, hip, leg and foot problems, and sleep apnea. Shes on multiple medications and lies to her doctor about what she eats and how little she moves around. She wont see a counselor. And our sex life? Fuhgeddaboudit. If I say, Lets take a walk, she says, Im too tired. If I say, Youre killing yourself, her answer is, I dont care. We own a treadmill and a stationary bike, both nice clothes hangers. I love my wife, but shes difficult to be with. I hope she reads this. She sure isnt paying attention to me. Given Up Hope Out East Dear Just: We arent buying your wifes reasoning. We think she has given up on living a healthy life because the amount of work required is overwhelming and depressing. But she also is putting tremendous strain on you. You cannot fix this. She must want to do it for herself. So make sure she has a legal will and that her funeral wishes are written down for you. Then let her do what she wants. You need to live the best life you can while she lets hers slowly fade away. Dear Annie: Sleepless seems very concerned about absolving his co-worker of the wrongdoing of having accepted his money for sex several years ago. But his actions were equally as immoral and embarrassing. For some reason, this longago encounter was memorable for him, but I doubt it meant much to her. She probably doesnt remember him. She certainly isnt carrying around a letter to him. This woman has moved on. I dont believe he intends to make her feel better. I think he wants to humiliate her to soothe his own guilt.
