At least 10 people were killed. When rescuers first arrived, they could only listen for screams and moans because the poor visibility made it difficult to find victims in wreckage that was strewn for nearly a mile, police said. Wrecked vehicles sit along the road Sunday at the scene of a multi-vehicle accident that killed at least 10 people, on Interstate 75 near Gainesville. Authorities were still trying to determine what caused the pileup on the highway, which had been closed for a time because of the mixture of fog and heavy smoke from a brush fire at Paynes Prairie. At least 12 cars and seven tractor-trailers were involved, and some burst into flame.

Army Cpl. Allen Gator Cochran has just returned to Crystal River from an 11-month tour of duty in Afghanistan. Soldier home on leave talks about Afghanistan N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER For Army Cpl. Allen Gator Cochran, military service is about the mission. Its about discipline and routine, doing good, bringing order, and brokering and keeping the peace. Currently, Cochran is with 11 Bravo Infantry, stationed at Fort Knox, Ky., and back from an 11-month tour of duty in Afghanistan. Earlier this week, the 22year-old Crystal River native sat down with the Chronicle his dad, Allen Cochran Sr., by his side, and talked about his experiences in the Army and being over there. Leading up to his decision to join I was in ROTC (Navy) at Crystal River High School and started thinking seriously about the military when I was in 10th grade. I didnt want to go into the Navy though, because I didnt want to be on a ship for a long time. I liked the discipline of the Army. I joined two years ago.

Time short for Gingrich to close gap in Florida Associated PressMIAMI Newt Gingrich slammed GOP rival Mitt Romney on Sunday for the steady stream of attacks he likened to carpet-bombing, trying to cut into the resurgent front-runners lead in Florida in the dwindling hours before Tuesdays pivotal presidential primary. Surging ahead in polls, Romney kept the pressure on Gingrich with a dominant advertising presence that questioned the former House speakers leadership and ethics. During campaign stops, Romney divided his focus between Gingrich and President Barack Obama. In what has become a wildly unpredictable race, the momentum has swung back to Romney, staggered last weekend by Gingrichs victory in South Carolina. Romney has begun advertising in Nevada ahead of that states caucuses next Saturday, illustrating the challenges See PRIMARY / Page A6 Dance pupils show their stuff in class C ATHYK APULKA Staff Writer HOMOSASSA enior dancers tapped to a solid four beat as the Andrews Sisters song, Bounce Me Brother with a Solid Four, played numerous times until the dancers perfected their routine.

C ATHYK APULKA Staff WriterINVERNESS The crowd cheered as beefed-up engines roared while pulling weighted sleds and struggling to make it to the full-pull line Sunday during the 13th annual Truck & Tractor Pull at the Citrus County Fairgrounds in Inverness. The event, which is sponsored by the Citrus County Fair Association, uses its proceeds to add additional scholarships for youths who participate in competitive county fair exhibits and its livestock program, said Hal Porter, the associations manager. About 3,000 people attend the two-day event, he said. Drivers who represented 20 states and Canada pulled weighted sleds 593 times, giving the spectators what they came for, fun and excitement. Garry Sanderson, of Ontario Canada, brought his 1959 Farmall 560 tractor to the Citrus competition for the past five years. Citrus County, we love it, Sanderson said. Its good people, and its a great venue. The best thing about tractor pulling is the people you meet. Sanderson finished fifth in the Super Antique Tractor class competition. Stewart Mitchell, also of Ontario, brings his 1963 Cub Cadet garden tractor to Citrus County each year. He said he has been driving the same tractor for the past 35 years, competing throughout North America. The camaraderie is the best thing about tractor pulling, Mitchell said. If youre in Canada or the USA, its all the same. And their fun to drive. Mitchell placed second in the in the 1,250-pound garden tractor class. Porter was pleased with the turnout of both competitors and spectators. Its a tremendous economic boost for our area, he said. All of these people had to stay and eat somewhere. He said he wanted to thank the spectators, drivers, sponsors and volunteers that make the event possible. The Citrus County Fair Association is really blessed to have such dedicated volunteers who helped produce this event, about 75, Porter said. It takes a lot of work. He added after this weekend the association goes into high gear to get ready for the Citrus County Fair which is March 26 through March 31. Starting Monday, Im putting this (the truck and tractor pull) to bed and start working on the Citrus County Fair, Porter said. Come see us.

S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 MONDAY, JANUARY 30, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER The success of last years Stone Crab Jam meant only one thing to Kings Bay Rotary Club: more money to give back to the community. The rotary behind the annual seafood event gave a grand total of $11,330 Thursday night to the various local organizations that supplied volunteer labor at the Stone Crab Jam in November. Reimbursing each organization at $10 for every hour worked, Ed Turschmann, president of the Kings Bay Rotary Club, said they provided a sum of 1,333 hours of support for the event. The number does not include the number of hours provided by members of the rotary club and two special volunteers, Bill McKee and Frank Fusick. Turschmann said last years Stone Crab Jam was better than previous years. So its good to know on top of giving the volunteer organizations money, another $40,000 will go toward supporting local, international and domestic projects, he said. While all the groups gave an enormous amount of assistance during the festival, Turschmann said the youth groups, especially the FFA clubs from Lecanto and Crystal River high schools, really rolled up their sleeves and worked a combined total of 250 hours. The kids really work hard, and we appreciate it, Turschmann said. They gave a lot of hours. During Thursday nights presentation, several people showed up to not only receive their checks, but give thanks to Kings Bay Rotary for giving back to the community. Thank you. We love the event. Its a great event, said Joe Foster, who accepted a check on behalf of Hospice of Citrus County. Fifteen-year-old Lillian French, who came with a few of her Venturing Crew 370 members, said working during the Stone Crab Jam was a great experience. We love to give back, she said. When asked what the crew will do with the money, French explained it would be used for trips and training. Organizations that volunteered during last years Stone Crab Jam were: Hospice of Citrus County, Lecanto High School FFA, Crystal River High School FFA, Central Citrus Rotary Club, Rotary of Inverness, Rotary Club of Crystal River, Sugarmill Woods Rotary Club, Homosassa Rotary Club, Daystar Life Center, Rotaract Club, Interact Club, Venturing Crew 370, Crystal River Pilots Club, Nature Coast EMS and Habitat for Humanity.Chronicle reporter Shemir Wiles can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 352-564-2924. Rotary Club doles out fundraising money Local groups receive funds for volunteering at Stone Crab Jam Case against Halls River Resort to move forward C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterHOMOSASSA A judges decision last week will allow a Homosassa resident to move forward with her effort to stop a project from being built on the Halls River. Joanne Bartell objected last summer when county commissioners approved an amendment to the comprehensive development plan to allow the construction of a property known as Halls River Resort, a mix of 31 stilt cabins, managers residence and restaurant on 11 acres of woodland on the Halls River in Homosassa. Bartell asked a judge to overturn the countys move. She said the plan as adopted was inconsistent with several aspects of the comprehensive plan: It permits uses not previously permitted, fails to meet minimum lot size requirements when a combination of uses is permitted, does not meet the maximum 8 percent commercial usage when there is a combination of uses and failed to submit an appropriate preliminary plot plan. Bartell also challenged the plan would violate the countys manatee protection plan. County Attorney Richard Wesch and Clark Stillwell, representing Halls River Development Inc., asked Circuit Judge Charles Harris to dismiss Bartells case, saying it should be heard instead by the Florida Division of Administrative Hearings, which adjudicates disputes. Their position is less than convincing, according to the judges order. The motion to dismiss was denied.

Land code bogs down local board C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterThe Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) started to conduct a workshop Tuesday about the history and progress of rewriting the Land Development Code (LDC), but ran out of time and couldnt cover the territory. The workshop got off to a late start as it followed a meeting of the Citrus County Port Authority that also started late, too. The new LDC, which has been rewritten by the Department of Development Services for more than a year, is proposed to consist of 11 chapters. However, the meeting ended shortly before noon with three chapters still to cover. Development Services Director Vince Cautero recommended those chapters be presented at a later time. Cautero made presentations chapter by chapter, with time in between for questions and comments from the board and the public. What you see is a compilation of the various chapters that we believe will guide development into the future in the county, Cautero said. In addition to code changes, Cautero also recommended some name changes. Were recommending a name change to Planning and Development Department rather than Development Services, Cautero said. We dont just provide services to people who are developing property. Cautero also recommended a name change for the Planning and Development Review Board (PDRB) back to a previous designation of Planning Commission. But Ive made a slight change to that to Planning and Development Commission to let the public know the planning board as it sits now does make some final decisions on some applications and they are reviewing development, Cautero said. Theyre not just an advisory board. They do have decision-making capacity on some applications. Members of the public who offered comments at the workshop included Clark Stillwell, James Williams, Gaston Hall and Cathy Mills. After the workshop is completed, staff will revise the LDC to incorporate changes desired by the BOCC and schedule a final public hearing with the PDRB and then two hearings with the BOCC in April and May. The draft code is posted on the countys website, www.bocc.citrus.fl.us/, as supporting documentation on the meeting agenda.

Roosevelt to a U.S. radio audience on June 6, 1944, which was D-Day. A yes vote was to send HR 2070 to the Senate. Rich Nugent, Yes. Debt-Limit Rollback: Senators refused, 44-52, to block a $1.2 trillion increase in Treasury borrowing authority needed by Jan. 27 to keep the government from defaulting on debt already incurred. Defeat of this measure (HJ Res 98) allowed the U.S. debt ceiling to rise from $15.2 trillion to $16.4 trillion. A yes vote was to roll back a debt-limit rise enacted last year by Congress as part of the Budget Control Act. Bill Nelson, No; Marco Rubio, Yes. Judge John Gerrard: Senators confirmed, 74-16, Nebraska Supreme Court Justice John M. Gerrard, 58, as a federal judge in that state.

Authorities were still trying to determine what caused the pileup south of Gainesville on Interstate 75, which had been closed for a time before the accidents because of the mixture of fog and heavy smoke from a brush fire that may have been intentionally set. At least a dozen cars and six tractor-trailers were involved, and some burst into flames. Steven R. Camps of Gainesville said he and some friends were driving home several hours before dawn when they were drawn into the pileup. You could hear cars hitting each other. People were crying. People were screaming. It was crazy, he said. If I could give you an idea of what it looked like, I would say it looked like the end of the world. Photographs of the scene taken hours later revealed an aftermath that resembled a Hollywood disaster movie. Twisted, burned-out vehicles were scattered across the pavement, with smoke still rising from the wreckage. Cars appeared to have smashed into the big rigs and, in one case, a motor home. Some cars were crushed beneath the heavier trucks. Reporters who were allowed to view the site saw bodies still inside a burnedout Grand Prix. One tractortrailer was burned down to its skeleton, charred pages of books and magazines in its cargo area. And the tires of every vehicle had burned away, leaving only steel belts. Authorities had not released the names of victims Sunday evening, but said one passenger car had four fatalities and a tour bus-like vehicle also was involved in the pileup. At least 18 people were taken to a hospital. All six lanes of the interstate which runs virtually the entire length of Florida were closed most of Sunday afternoon as investigators surveyed the site and firefighters put out the last of the flames. The northbound lanes of I75 were reopened around 5:30 p.m., but the southbound lanes remained closed. Our standard operating procedure is to get the road open as quickly as possible, but lets not forget we have 10 people who are not with us today, said Lt. Patrick Riordan, a Florida Highway Patrol spokesman. So we are going to take our time assessing the situation. It was not clear when the highway would fully reopen because part of the road melted, police said. At some point before the pileup, police briefly closed the highway because of the fog and smoke. The road was reopened when visibility improved.

Fowler. We are celebrating our relocation to 108 W. Highland Blvd., in Inverness, just west of the four way stop at the intersection of Highland Boulevard and S. Apopka. I have agreed to give away to (anyone who asks for it) $250 of my services for only $20. In the years since I began my practice, Ive helped hundreds of people feel better and live healthier more productive lives through chiropractic care. And now Id like to introduce even more Central Florida residents to the many benefits our profession has to offer. For instance, chiropractic care may be able to help you if youre suffering from any of the following conditions: Migraine headaches Lower back pain Numbness or soreness in your arms or legs Constant fatigue; lack of energy Muscle spasms, sprains & strains And a whole host of other problems ranging from dizziness to ringing in the ear. These symptoms can be caused whenever the vertebrae in your spine are out of alignment because these misalignments directly affect your nervous system. Fortunately, if you are suffering from any of these problems or a similar affliction right now, they can be relieved or eliminated by proper chiropractic treatment (commonly called adjustment). So, if youve always wanted to check out chiropractic care and see what it can do for you, now is the best time to do so because What does this offer include? Everything. Take a look at what you will receive An in-depth consultation about your health and well-being A complete chiropractic spinal examination A full set of specialized X-rays to determine if a misalignment in your spine is causing your pain or symptoms (NOTE: nobody gives these kinds of X-rays away free; they would normally cost you at least $200). An analysis of your X-rays and spinal exam results to see what needs to be done to help relieve your problem Helpful literature that shows you how your body works and why you experience pain Answers to all your most probing questions about chiropractic care and what it can do for you The appointment will not take long. The charge is normally $250 (most of which just covers the full set of X-rays). But for now, as part of this special offer, you can come in and find out for certain if you need chiropractic care and how it might help you eliminate the pain you are feeling. Meet the Doctor Before you come in, though, you will probably want to know a little bit about me. So let me tell you I graduated from the prestigious Life University in 2002, where I received recognition for superior clinical proficiency. I have done extensive post-graduate work in the research and science of chiropractic. I am certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners. I am also a technique instructor for the Advanced Orthogonal Techniques and Procedures focusing on the importance of the Upper Cervical Spine. I have also had extensive training in chiropractic physiotherapy. Does Chiropractic Really Work? Absolutely! Here are some findings from studies done by chiropractic and medical researchers Chiropractic Patients Were Found to be More SatisfiedChiropractic patients were found to be more satisfied with their back care providers after four weeks of treatment than were medical patients. Results from observational studies suggested that back pain patients are more satisfied with chiropractic care than with medical care. Additionally, studies conclude that patients are more satisfied with chiropractic care than they were with physical therapy after six weeks. Hertzman-Miller et al (2002) American Journal of Public Health Significant Improvement in Headache Cervical spine manipulation was associated with significant improvement in headache outcomes in trials involving patients with neck pain and/or neck dysfunction and headache. Duke Evidence Report, McCrory, Penzlen, Hasselblad, Gray (2001) Would you like even more proof that chiropractic works? Then listen to these comments from a few of my patients Patient Success Stories I suffered from low back pain for over two years and tried other doctors, treatments and medications before seeking chiropractic care. My back problem is now a thing of the past. I find I can run more than 2 miles, and I wake up in the morning without pain. Sincerely Kary Cox Since birth, my little boy had chronic asthma, a constant barking cough, food sensitivities, and was unable to sleep for more than 2-4 hours at a time. We tried prescription drugs, including steroids, and had many emergency room visits. When Tate was 14 months old, we found chiropractic. Now he sleeps all night, eats anything and keeps it down. He doesnt get short of breath anymore and is a very healthy and content little boy. Sincerely, Julie Schultz Guarantee of Great Service Obviously, I cannot guarantee results. No one can. But there is one guarantee I can give you, and that is a guarantee to give my best effort. Plus, if I do not think I can help you, I will tell you and refer you to another specialist who might be able to help. Limited Time Offer Obviously, with an offer like this, I cannot afford to do it for very long, so I picked February 17th, 2012. If you would like to take me up on my offer to see what chiropractic can do for you, all you have to do is call our office and set up an appointment, PHONE (352) 344-1300 Call this number only Call anytime between the hours of 9-12 and 2-6 M/W/F or 9-12 T/Th.

Copyright 2009/AMC PAID ADVERTISEMENT Slow down on Turner Camp Road N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS From Ella Avenue at U.S. 41 to the end at the boat ramp into the Withlacoochee River, it takes between 13 and 15 minutes to drive the seven miles of Turner Camp Road. Thats if you obey the speed limit signs longer if you are stopped for speeding. Recently, the county put up several different signs, lowering the speed limit in places, which caught regular commuters by surprise and caused a bit of an uproar for the county public works department, said Larry Brock, deputy public works director. After less than a week, the signs were changed again. Several went from white to yellow from regulatory to advisory. After we put them up, we monitored the reaction and got complaints, Brock said. One resident, Bill Antonen, who lives one mile from the end of the dead-end county road (C.R. 581 North) and who travels it daily, said now its a speed trap and morning traffic is down to a slow crawl. Ive been out here for 21 years and the only fatality I can remember is a bunch of kids who were drunk and speeding and rolled their car, and a sign wouldnt have made a difference, he said. So, why change the signs in the first place and why now? According to county Public Works Director Ken Frink, his office had received complaints from residents about speeding. The road has a winding two-mile stretch, which can be dangerous. When we receive complaints, we have to listen, especially when it comes to safety safetys number one, Frink said. We pulled the accident reports and saw there had been 12 accidents on that stretch of road, which included 11 injuries and one fatality. Information from the Citrus County Sheriffs Office showed six speed-related citations issued on Turner Camp Road in 2011. Late last fall, public works staff conducted a speed-limit study using guidelines set by the Florida Department of Transportation. Using a device mounted on a dashbord, they drove the length of the road at various speeds and recorded the centrifugal force measurements while taking the curves. Up went the lowered speed limit signs, in came the complaints. Now the winding stretch of road thats after the bridge and before Misty Meadows Blueberry Farm has several yellow advisory signs showing a curved black arrow and a numeral 30. The signs caution curved road ahead. The 30 is an added precaution, suggesting 30 miles per hour is a safer speed around the curves. The posted regulatory speed in that area is 35 miles per hour. The slowest regulatory speed limit, 25 miles per hour, is from Ella Avenue to just past the Withlacoochee State Trail less than a mile in length; the fastest speed on the road is 45 miles per hour. Also, the sheriffs office has installed a traffic trailer on Turner Camp Road, which posts a drivers speed as it approaches it, to alert drivers about the speed limit changes. Brock said theyre still in the process of tweaking the signage. Rather than slow down, speed up, slow down, speed up, what we want to create is a more steady and safer flow of traffic, he said. Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at email@example.com or 352-564-2927. DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle The speed limits along Turner Camp Road in Inverness changed recently, and the Citrus County Sheriffs Office installed a traffic trailer to remind drivers of their speed. PILEUP Continued from Page A1 I-75 DETOUR POSSIBLE According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the following detour routes should be used until further notice. It was not clear when the highway would reopen because part of the road melted, FHP Lt. Patrick Riordan said. That means transportation inspectors have to first sign off on the road before it can open to traffic again. For travelers using southbound Interstate 75, they will be required to exit at the Williston Road exit, which is the 382 mile marker. Travelers can then travel west to U.S. 27, to resume travel southbound.
and enjoyment. When you come in here your could be in the depths of depression and in pain, and then its magic time, Rich said. The joy of those shoes, that music and that woman (Cole) it doesnt work without her. She just sprinkles you with stardust and away we go. Rich said she had a hip replacement two years ago because of arthritis. She said the tap class keeps her in shape. Im back to feeling like a middleaged woman whos having a really good time, she said. Theres a teenager inside me. Rose Catlin, 78, said she started dancing at the studio when she was 57. And Ive been here ever since, she said. Its the best hour of my week. Catlin said Cole teaches with love and hugs while instilling confidence and inspiring her students. Lillian Stock, 81, has had knee and heart valve replacements. When I come here, I dont feel pain, Stock said. She (Cole) makes me feel young. Pretty soon shell have us doing cartwheels. Cole said she looks forward to seeing the ladies in her class each week. They are my studio family, Cole said. I love them. Theyre always willing to learn, and they will work until they get it, Cole said. They can really tap, theyre not doing baby steps. Coles studio offers various dance classes for people of all ages, including children. She also offers a senior tap class for beginners.

Romneys campaign has dogged Gingrich at his own campaign stops, sending surrogates to remind reporters of Gingrichs House ethics probe in the 1990s and other episodes in his career. Gingrich reacted defensively, accusing the former Massachusetts governor and a political committee that supports him of lying, and the GOPs establishment of allowing it. I dont know how you debate a person with civility if theyre prepared to say things that are just plain factually false, Gingrich said during appearances on Sunday talk shows. I think the Republican establishment believes its OK to say and do virtually anything to stop a genuine insurgency from winning because they are very afraid of losing control of the old order. Gingrich objected specifically to a Romney campaign ad that includes a 1997 NBC News report on the Houses decision to discipline Gingrich, then speaker, for ethics charges. After hounding Gingrich during two debates last week, Romney returned more of his attention to Obama, who had been Romneys chief target as he tried to make the case that he was the most worthy Republican to challenge the Democratic incumbent. But Romney didnt relent in swiping at Gingrich, even as an NBC News/Marist poll published Sunday showed Romney with support from 42 percent of likely Florida primary voters, compared with 27 percent for Gingrich. Hes now finding excuses ... complaining about what he thinks were the reasons he thinks hes had difficulty here in Florida. But you know, weve got a president who has a lot of excuses, Romney said at a rally in Naples. And the excuses are over, its time to produce. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, trailing in Florida by a wide margin, stayed in his home state, where his 3-year-old daughter, Bella, was hospitalized. She has a genetic condition caused by the presence of all or part of an extra 18th chromosome. Aides said he would resume campaigning as soon as possible. Texas Rep. Ron Paul, who has invested little in Florida, looked ahead to Nevada. The libertarian-leaning Paul is focusing more on gathering delegates in caucus states, where its less expensive to campaign.

He was 93. Italian President Giorgio Napolitano paid tribute to his predecessor as a protagonist in the democratic political life and an example of moral integrity. As president of the republic, he firmly and steadfastly confronted one of the most difficult periods of our history, Napolitano said in a statement. Pope Benedict XVI remembered Scalfaro as a distinguished Catholic man of state, who helped to promote the common good and the perennial ethical and religious values. Scalfaro was a key figure in postwar Italian politics, helping to write the constitution and to found the former Christian Democrats. He is survived by a daughter, Marianna.

Theyre throwing fake grenades at you and you have to run out and get into formation ... and run up the hill with all your bags screaming your last name. How he prepared for Afghanistan We went to the Mojave Desert in California in August to get used to the heat and to train. They had mock-up cities and people role-playing and speaking the language. We arrived in Afghanistan, Khost Province near the Pakistan border. I went with the mindset that it would be worse than it really was. But it was OK. We had cots and a concrete structure and in some places we had Internet access. What combat is like The best way to describe it is controlled chaos. Thats what we trained for, so when we got into a situation we wouldnt freak out. We trained so when your squad leader tells you to do something, you do it. Interrupted sleep I went there thinking we wouldnt sleep a lot, but we had fairly good sleep, although there was a point when we were constantly woken up by IDF, indirect fire (mortars) and wed have to go out and find them. When wed go out on missions for long periods of time, that was rough, but you get used to it. Interacting with the Afghan people Some of the people act like they like us and some villages we can go into and theyre awesome, but some throw rocks at us. We had a class about learning the customs and one of them was about tea and their flatbread. Theyll always bring you food, even if they have 12 kids and cant feed them, and its rude not to eat it. Biggest misconception of U.S. involvement over there A lot of people think were just there playing Army, and I didnt understand it either until we got there. What were doing is training the National Afghan Army to make them better so once we leave its up to them to keep their country going. We go into the villages theyre often in conflict with another village and we have a shurah, a gathering of elders from the villages and we facilitate so they can talk out their problems. Overall, were just trying to better them to better themselves. Support from home Baby wipes and ramen noodles! Those are the most valuable things in care packages from home. Baby wipes because we dont get to take showers and ramen noodles because you can eat them anywhere, even dry. Its nice when people here adopt a soldier. When youre over there theres not a lot to look forward to except getting mail. Advice fromDad I was 11 Bravo also, in When I heard that he got orders, I told him, Keep your head down, stay alert at all times and dont trust nobody except your team. Were very proud of him. How he spent his 22nd birthday, May 28 I Skyped with my family, which was nice. They took pictures of my birthday cake. (On Thanksgiving they took a picture of a big plate of food, too.) On my birthday, we were out on patrol early in the morning. We came back and then got called out again. One of the trucks got stuck and we spent 13 hours waiting for a (tow) truck. Yellow ribbons, recognition and honoring older veterans When I see the yellow ribbons (outside my house), it makes me feel good that Im being thought of. Its nice to be in the airport and people say, Thank you. In 2010 in Kentucky, we had a Big Red One reunion with Vietnam veterans and people who were in our unit and they got to see all our gear and compared it to what they used. It was awesome meeting them, especially the Vietnam vets because they were treated so badly. I say thank you to them all the time. If it wasnt for them, I wouldnt be where I am today. Whats next? Im still stationed in Kentucky and have 22 more months left. I dont know if Ill re-enlist; it depends on if I make E-5 within a year. Right now were on nationwide QRF, Quick Response Force. That means if theres a flare up anywhere in the world, we go.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2927.

Tax ratesThere has been a lot of talk recently about the tax records of Republican candidate Mitt Romney being released to the public, and an uproar about his statement that he paid somewhere in the area of 15 percent in taxes last year. Now Im not a huge Romney fan, mostly because I dont think his views are quite conservative enough, but nonetheless, I think this big fuss about his tax rate is nothing but media hype. First of all, the 15 percent rate is the same that anyone else pays on investment income regardless of their tax bracket, and more importantly, where do all the deep-thinking liberals think the money for his investments came from in the first place? He earned it, and has already been taxed once on it at a much higher rate. So in essence, the 15 percent rate on his investment income is a double tax. Oh, by the way, if you check back through the history of the federal tax rates, you will see that in 1991 when Clinton took office, the rate was around 31 percent for the high earners. He raised it to 39 percent as well as raising the rate on everyone else to 15 percent. All Bush did with the Bush tax cuts was bring the high earners rate back down to 35 percent, or about half of Clintons tax increase. Butch Adams Homosassa Port foregone I was thinking about getting a feasibility study to train elephants as tightrope walkers! Is it possible and practical to achieve this feat easily and conveniently? Thats what feasibility means. I should hire a company to do this study. Honest companies would first ask Why would you do it even if you could? It would cost a fortune. Although its technically against the laws of nature, the idea may be possible but not practical. Its also not easily achievable, so therefore its not feasible! Money should be spent on feasible projects that are practical and easily achievable. What are the pass/fail criteria for the Port Citrus feasibility study? What is the environmental impact the port would have on our pristine Nature Coast? Most of us moved here instead of the counties south of us with ports and pollution. I am afraid in this current world of corporate corruption; the decision to build the port will not be based on a true feasibility study. The BOCC has already had the barge canal designated a deepwater port and appointed itself as Port Authority executives. It has also spent or set aside hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars for port expenses. Do you really think these folks are going to hire someone who will tell them this disaster is unfeasible? They are already working on a Port Citrus logo! It sounds like they have already decided! Unfortunately, the BOCC has declared it will not take the low bid on the study. It will cherry-pick consultants. Follow the money. Who benefits from this nightmare? Will this feasibility study be a rubber stamp to OK construction projects for the port that will destroy the Nature Coast? It may not be practical, convenient and feasible, but with enough money just about anything can be done. But you and I know who will be paying for it taxpayers. Roger Dobronyi Inverness Fighting abuse At my request, Mr. Winn Webb, the chairman of the Citrus County of County Commissioners Board of Commissioners, asked the BOCC to approve on Jan. 10 an authorization for A Proclamation Against Child Pornography in Citrus County and it was presented to me as follows: The Board of County Commissioners of Citrus County Florida, Proclamation Against Child Pornography: Whereas, every child deserves a nurturing family and a safe environment, free from fear, abuse and neglect. Tragically, sexual, emotional and physical abuse threatens too many children everyday in communities across our nation. Parents, guardians, relatives, and neighbors all share a responsibility to prevent these devastating crimes, and our government plays a critical role as well; and Whereas, pornography can have debilitating effects on communities, marriages, families, and children. Child pornography preys upon defenseless children and exposes them to physical and mental abuse which can leave emotional scars that last a lifetime; and Whereas, the United States Department of Justice coordinates programs to track and prosecute child pornography offenders across all jurisdictions, from local police departments to federal investigations, including international cooperation throughout the world. Now therefore, the Board of County Commissioners of Citrus County, Florida, does hereby proclaim Child Pornography to be an activity in which local, state and federal agencies, parents, educators, and the business community should join forces to combat its production and distribution, and work together to eliminate it from our community. The above was patterned after the proclamation received from the city of Dunnellon. One of the seven cities in Florida that have been presented to myself similar proclamations at their city council meetings, although the Citrus County proclamation is the first known county to issue such a proclamation in the United States and I do plan on using Citrus County as an example for all cities and counties to follow and to get on board to protect children everywhere from exploitation! Renee ChristopherMcPheeters Crystal River The last word I dont want to get into a Letter to the Editor battle with Robin Humphrey, so this is the last I will write on the subject. Turn off Fox News! The reason this country is $15 trillion in debt is not because we provide public education, school lunches, Social Security benefits or any of the other entitlements named in Robin Humphreys letter. It is because George W. Bush led us into a needless and unwanted war in Iraq and bungled the Afghan conflict to the point where American forces cannot leave either place without threat to the political stability of those countries. When the (Democratic) Clinton administration left office, we had a budget surplus while still providing all of the entitlements Humphrey decries. Iraq and Afghanistan have and continue to cost us trillions of dollars. All talk of a peace dividend has long since been forgotten. And by the way, I do pay both property taxes and income taxes. Since Im not running for public office, I dont feel compelled to release any information about what I pay, but for Robin Humphreys edification, over the course of my 62 years, I have worked for 42 years and paid income and FICA taxes every single year, and owned five homes at varying times and paid property taxes on all of them. Never once did I feel my money was confiscated. I look around me every day and see what I receive in return. I, for one, am glad to have well-lit street signs.

O PINION Page A10 MONDAY, JANUARY 30, 2012 Drill here, drill now With the cost of gasoline escalating as it is, for what earthly reasons are our billions of gallons of fuel in the USA being kept in the ground? I have received at least 10 emails over the years stating we have enough gas in the ground to supply the United States of America for over 100 years dont need any imports. Why is this taking place? The countries all over the world are sending oil to us, charging whatever they decide to. Why? We do have politicians, Im sure, who know this and make no effort to get it out of the ground. Of course, with their guaranteed salaries and voting pay raises anytime they want to, why bother? Please, citizens of the U.S., get in touch with our government members to remind them what a benefit this would be to all no import fees, unlimited fuel forever. Please try to contact the people who can do it. Leroy Loveland Sr. Homosassa Well miss youYou people thats how my friends were referred to when getting the news about the end of their employment at the countyrun Chassahowitzka River campground. No officials showed any compassion for their plight. It broke my heart to look at their faces. My husband and I are from New Jersey and camped as winter residents at Chaz for about 15 years. We grew to love the area and the people so much we bought our own place. We like to go down to the dock to socialize with our friends, find out where the fish are biting and to have a good cup of coffee, all while gazing out at the river, the manatees and the boats and kayaks. We find it very peaceful. We will miss our friends deeply, but we know they will pull themselves up by their bootstraps and go on everyone does but Chaz will lose an ambiance we have grown to love. Libby, Diane, Joyce, Mike and Dave, we wish you all good things in your future and we hope to see you from time to time. Those people will never replace any of you. E. Garron Homosassa Paying for city errors The Letter to the Editor from Friday, Jan. 13, titled Sewer agenda was an awakening for me and caused reflection and re-reading of prior material on the sewer project. My first introduction was a letter from the BOCC Department of Water Resources dated May 4, 2011. In this letter the BOCC states that the costs and fees for the residences of area 112 and 113, which consists of 316.83 AU (assessment units) was $4,403,717.18. Anticipated grant funding could reduce the costs to $1,889,454.18 and each AU to $5,982.50. This seems to be based on their formula of ,889,454.18 + 315.83 $5,982.50. Im guessing that the plus sign should have been a division sign and that the 315.83 or the 316.83 was an uncaught typo. My letter then went on to state that my number of assessment units was two and my preliminary assessment would be $11,965.00. This amount plus what I learned later (connection/expansion fee from the city of Crystal River of $3,250.00) would bring my individual cost to more than $15,215. I live on Country Club Drive, but across the street from the golf course. I have approximately 2 acres of property, living in a 2/2 house, and have never had a problem with my septic system. In the nine years I have lived here, I have had my septic system serviced four times. Now my elected officials have deemed it necessary for me to pay an extraordinarily high fee to replace something that is not failing or affecting anything. Please help me understand why I must pay for the errors of the city of Crystal River and why the county wants to charge me for a project which costs it nothing. Glen Nail Crystal River I n a democracy, nothing is supposed to matter more than the will of the people. So it was painful to watch last week as the will of the people was overturned and one of Arizonas duly elected representatives was forced from office. It wasnt a recall vote or scandal that did it. No, the peoples will was overturned by a gun. After a year of upbeat bulletins and proclamations of her miracle recovery, the decision by Rep. Gabrielle Giffords to leave Congress comes as a bit of a blow. In a video she explains she needs to concentrate full time on her rehab. Giffords speaks clearly, but with a sometimes odd cadence, as if picking her way through an unfamiliar language evidence of the brain injury she sustained when she was shot in the head last year at a constituents event in Tucson. Thirteen other people were wounded, six killed. This episode joins a long list of elections overturned and social movements derailed by men with guns, as in the shootings of Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield, William McKinley, Huey Long, Malcolm X, Medgar Evers, the Kennedy brothers, George Wallace, George Moscone, Harvey Milk and Martin Luther King Jr. Somehow, people who should never have guns never have trouble getting them. John Kennedys assassin, a disaffected former Marine who had once defected to the Soviet Union, bought his by mail order. Kings assassin, a wanted fugitive, bought his over the counter. Jared Lee Loughner, the man now in jail for the Tucson massacre, was able legally to obtain a gun despite the fact he was a mentally deranged man who had been rejected by the U.S. Army and kicked out of a community college, which suggests, while Loughner may be unbalanced, American gun laws are downright insane. And they will likely stay insane, so long as our politics remain a hatefully polarized affair where the two sides glower at one another like boxers in their respective corners and compromise is a dirty word. After all, the solution here is not rocket science. We need meaningful background checks on all gun purchases no loopholes. A mentally unstable man should not have legal access to a gun, period. We need to ban fully automatic weapons from private use. The hunter who needs a gun that fires hundreds of rounds a minute isnt much of a hunter. We need to encourage gun safety classes so poorly secured firearms stop ending up in the hands of little children. At the very least, we need to have a serious national dialogue about these and other possible solutions. But we wont. Too many on the political left still seem to harbor a fantasy of getting rid of all guns and refuse to distinguish between responsible gun owners and those criminals or deranged people who have no business with firearms. Too many on the political right still harbor the paranoid delusion that any talk of gun control is code for confiscation by jackbooted thugs riding black helicopters. So nobody talks. Nobody listens. Meantime, our unwillingness to get serious about an epidemic of gun violence brings us the equivalent of 11 Columbine massacres every week three 9/11s every year. Every once in a while, as now, it even overturns an election. The carnage goes on, and on. And sadly, that, too, reflects the peoples will.

The Florida Department of Education recently released its list of top districts, and Citrus was 14 out 67 counties. Rankings are based on Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) scores. Citrus is one of 30 state districts that received A grades. The high ranking confirms the district is doing the right thing when it comes to preparing students to achieve success on the standardized tests. Some districts complained the rankings do not account for district size or poverty levels, but in Citrus case it scored high despite having 55 percent of its student population on free or reduced lunches. Citrus is a smaller district than many, but this type of accolade does not happen by chance. It takes hard work and commitment from top to bottom in the district to accomplish such a feat. The district, from board and administration to individual teachers, must be on its game and doing the right types of things, such as constantly evaluating performance, systems and processes to make sure they are staying ahead of the curve. It is evident the Citrus County School District has excellent leadership, good schools, good teachers and good students. Despite the high ranking, we are confident the same drive that put the district in the position it is in now will propel it even higher in the future.

Im just wondering how long its going to take or whats going to create an accident serious enough (that) people are going to or somebodys going to get their attention and take care of this problem.

S OUND OFF CALL 563-0579 Leonard Pitts OTHER VOICES Hot Corner: BIRDS Going south This is for the bird lady: Birds go south in the wintertime. Its winter. They went south. Dont worry. Have a good day.Hearing chirps I dont know whats the matter with all these birdwatchers. Maybe theyre getting up too late in the morning, but the birds are chirping around my house very early in the morning every single day, loud and clear. And look up in the sky, youll see whole flocks of them. Just dont give up the faith.Bird feedersRegarding the birds: Im not a biologist or a scientist, but I do know when you put out birdfeeders, you are telling the wild cats where to go for breakfast and lunch. Florida has an extremely high population of feral cats and they do eat birds. That is their natural prey. So, think about how many birdfeeders are in your area and wonder if the cats are feeding on the birds that are no longer around. All kinds of birdsI have lots of birds at my house. I live right off (County Road) 488 in the Mini Farms and I have hundreds of birds, all different kinds, in my birdfeeder, off and on, all day long. So I just thought Id pass that on. There are feral cats around here, but they dont seem to be bothering my birds and Ive had all kinds of them.Birds in yardJust wanted to make a comment about the Wherere the birds? I live in Heatherwood and I have six feeders and I go through 20 pounds of birdfeed a week. So, if you want to know where the birds are, theyre right here in my yard. All donations are acceptable.On Plantation There have been several inquiries in the paper about Where are the birds? Well, there are so many birds on the Plantation golf course, all kinds. Just thought Id let you know.Warm weatherFood for thought about the missing birds: While discussing the same issue with my son who lives in the Midwest, he offered his opinion that the migratory birds didnt leave the area due to unseasonably warm winters. He has a bird sanctuary and keeps feeders and water full all winter for the birds who migrate to the South. Based on the many, many types of birds that never left his area, he suggests the warm climate and food supply gave them no reason to fly south. Something to think about. I hope they come back.

Dental insurance As a retired dentist who practiced for 38 years, I feel qualified to respond to the woman who called Sound Off and was upset that a dental practice took Medicaid but not Medicare. Please be aware routine dentistry is not, and never has been, covered under Medicare. Patients who are covered by Medicaid qualify because of low income, disability, single-parent, etc., and treatment is strictly limited. Also, in most states, dentists who accept Medicaid are lucky if their reimbursement covers their office overhead expenses. As far as taking out dental insurance, unless you qualify for a group plan, you as an individual may be better off paying the old-fashioned way. Insurance companies are in the business to make a profit. Hence, you will not find an individual dental plan where, for example, you can pay a yearly premium of $200 and have the insurance cover $500 of dental treatment.Accountants oath In reading the One cure for accounting shenanigans column by Jason Zweig (in the Wall Street Journal ), allow me to inject the answer to many important problems like having an accountant take an honesty affirmation oath. That goes for all congressmen and senators who swear to uphold the U.S. Constitution but dont. When you take an oath to be honest, you can be held accountable at least, so we are told. What oath do these people take in accounting or Congress that (they) can be held responsible? Maybe Mr. Jason Zweig can give us one.Medical liability A few years ago, my wife was a passenger in a car that was involved in an accident. When she called her doctor to be checked out, as her back and neck was hurting, she was told that they dont treat PIP cases. She was told to find a clinic that specialized in car accidents. She had whiplash, a bulging disc in her lower back and bruised ribs. Its no wonder so many people end up with a lawyer. Her doctor should have treated her.Immoral all aroundYes, it is morally wrong to saddle future generations with debts. And its equally wrong to pledge loyalty to political parties, accept graft from lobbyists representing big corporations and be so corrupt in a political position that your constituents are of no concern at all. And being greedy and self-serving and disregarding the well-being of present and future citizens (are) against all morals and decency, as well as expecting hardworking, honest people to manage on a salary that is at poverty level. All that is unacceptable at every level.We suffer for profitsThis is for the person who called in about keeping fuel here and our fuel is the most exported item in the United States, which is true. And if it was kept here, the price of gas could be maybe $1.50 a gallon. But then hes missing the whole big picture of the story. Then the oil companies would not be making their billions and billions of dollars every quarter and thats whats important to them, not the American people. We have to suffer for that.The right to reasonIn Sundays Sound Off (Jan. 15), two people expressed their opinions on who should have the right to vote. Two responses, similar sentiments in that only smart taxpayers should be allowed that right. There is a solution, folks. Begin by using the smarts, which you obviously have in abundance, and read the Constitution. Then just get two-thirds of Congress and three-quarters of the states to agree with you. Thats all it takes. We all have the right to vote, but we also have the right to reason. For the sake of all of us, please exercise the second before exercising the first. International tragedyHere we go again. (A letter to the editor writer) repeating the words of George W.

Five found dead in Alabama home BIRMINGHAM, Ala. Police found five people dead inside a Birmingham home when they arrived early Sunday morning to investigate a possible robbery, authorities said. Birmingham Police Sgt. Johnny Williams said officers arrived at the house around 3:30 a.m. Sunday after receiving a call that a robbery was in progress and soon discovered the five victims. He told reporters investigators are interviewing potential witnesses, but so far have made no arrests. Someone out there knows more information, said Williams.

Earlier this month, supporters of the ruling generals painted over part of the largest and most famous antimilitary graffiti pieces in the capital. The militarys supporters then made a 15-minute video using footage posted by two young men stenciling pro-revolution graffiti and wearing Guy Fawkes masks, the grinning face made famous by the movie V for Vendetta. In an attempt mock the revolutionary street art, the military supporters declared in their video, The police, military and people are one hand, and, The military is a red line. From wire reports Nation BRIEF World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A12 MONDAY, JANUARY 30, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressTIVOLI, Texas For decades, farmers and fishermen along the Gulf of Mexico watched as their sensitive ecosystems waters slowly got dirtier and islands eroded, all while the country largely ignored the destruction. It took BP PLCs well blowing out in the Gulf and the resulting environmental catastrophe when millions of gallons of oil spewed into the ocean and washed ashore for the nation to turn its attention to the slow, methodical ruin of an ecosystem vital to the U.S. economy. Last month, more than a year and a half after the spill began, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced a threeyear, $50 million initiative designed to improve water quality along the coast. Im not going to say that its the silver lining, Will Blackwell, a district conservationist with the USDAs Natural Resources Conservation Services, said of the oil spill. Blackwell is one of many regional officials who have long worked with farmers and ranchers to fence cattle, reseed native grasses and take on other seemingly inane projects that go a long way toward preventing pollution and coastal erosion. Im going to say that it will help get recognition down here that we have this vital ecosystem that needs to be taken care of, he said. This will keep it at the forefront. Oil spill brings attention to Gulf Associated PressBEIRUT In dozens of tanks and armored vehicles, Syrian troops stormed rebellious areas near the capital Sunday, shelling neighborhoods that have fallen under the control of army dissidents and clashing with fighters. At least 62 people were killed in violence nationwide, activists and residents said. The widescale offensive near the capital suggested the regime is worried military defectors could close in on Damascus, which has remained relatively quiet while most other Syrian cities descended into chaos after the uprising began in March. The rising bloodshed added urgency to Arab and Western diplomatic efforts to end the 10-month conflict. The violence has gradually approached the capital. In the past two weeks, army dissidents have become more visible, seizing several suburbs on the eastern edge of Damascus and setting up checkpoints where masked men wearing military attire and wielding assault rifles stop motorists and protect anti-regime protests. Their presence so close to the capital is astonishing in tightly controlled Syria and suggests the Assad regime may either be losing control or setting up a trap for the fighters before going on the offensive. Residents of Damascus reported hearing clashes in the nearby suburbs, particularly at night, shattering the citys calm. The current battles taking place in and around Damascus may not yet lead to the unraveling of the regime, but the illusion of normalcy that the Assads have sought hard to maintain in the capital since the beginning of the revolution has surely unraveled, said Ammar Abdulhamid, a U.S.based Syrian dissident. Once illusions unravel, reality soon follows, he wrote in his blog Sunday. Soldiers riding some 50 tanks and dozens of armored vehicles stormed a belt of suburbs and villages on the eastern outskirts of Damascus known as al-Ghouta on Sunday, a predominantly Sunni Muslim agricultural area where large antiregime protests have been held. Syrian troops storms areas near capital About 62 people killed nationwide Associated PressOAKLAND, Calif. For weeks the protests had waned, with only a smattering of people taking to Oaklands streets for occasional weekend marches that bore little resemblance to the headlinegrabbing Occupy demonstrations of last fall. Then came Saturday, which started peacefully enough a midday rally at city hall and a march. But hours later, the scene near downtown Oakland had dramatically deteriorated: clashes punctuated by rock and bottle throwing by protesters and volleys of tear gas from police, and a city hall break-in that left glass cases smashed, graffiti spraypainted on walls and an American flag burned. More than 400 people were arrested on charges ranging from failure to disperse to vandalism, police spokesman Sgt. Jeff Thomason said. At least three officers and one protester were injured. On Sunday, Oakland officials vowed to be ready if Occupy protesters try to mount another large-scale demonstration. Protesters, meanwhile, decried Saturdays police tactics as illegal and threatened to sue. Mayor Jean Quan personally inspected damage caused by dozens of people who broke into city hall. She said she wants a court order to keep Occupy protesters who have been arrested several times out of Oakland, which has been hit repeatedly by demonstrations that have cost the financially troubled city about $5 million. Quan also called on the loosely organized movement to stop using Oakland as its playground. People in the community and people in the Occupy movement have to stop making excuses for this behavior, she said. Saturdays protests the most turbulent since Oakland police forcefully dismantled an Occupy encampment in November came days after the announcement of a new round of actions. The group said it planned to use a vacant building as a social center and political hub and threatened to try to shut down the Port of Oakland for a third time, occupy the airport and take over City Hall. After the mass arrests, the Occupy Oakland Media Committee criticized the polices conduct, saying most of the arrests were made illegally because police failed to allow protesters to disperse. It threatened legal action. Contrary to their own policy, the OPD gave no option of leaving or instruction on how to depart. These arrests are completely illegal, and this will probably result in another class action lawsuit against the OPD, a release from the group said. Civil disobedience?

Djokovic overcame a break in the fifth set to win his fifth Grand Slam tournament and third in a row. None, though, quite like this. This one involved tears, sweat and, yes, even a little blood. It was the longest Grand Slam singles final in the history of pro tennis and it came against Nadal, the player who built a career on his tenacity on outlasting opponents in matches like these. It was obvious on the court for everybody who has watched the match that both of us, physically, we took the last drop of energy that we had from our bodies, Djokovic said. We made history tonight and unfortunately there couldnt be two winners. When the drama was finally over at Rod Laver Arena, the 24-year-old Djokovic joined Laver, Pete Sampras, Roger Federer and Nadal as the only men who have won three consecutive majors since the Open Era began in 1968.

After a school-record 20-0 start to the 2011-12 season, the Hurricanes sit at 23-2 overall and are the overwhelming favorite to win the District 6A-6 tournament at Lecanto High School starting Thursday. Citrus has taken a decidedly old-school approach in compiling a 92 percent winning clip: practice hard and share the ball. We feel like it all starts in practice, Citrus head coach Brian Lattin said. From the first day we started in October, these kids have come to practice to get better. The concept of practicing really hard, getting along with each other and listening to your coach might seem quaint and antiquated in the 21st century, but the proof that it still works is in Inverness. The Hurricanes start juniors Lindsay Connors and Elizabeth Lynch at the guard spots, sophomore Shenelle Toxen at the 3 and the senior duo of Paige Garvin and Mary Wheeler down low. Bench players Marissa Dubois, Treleasha Simmons and Megan Rogstad have provided depth and given Lattin added flexibility. We have really great team chemistry and we all get along, Lynch said. There are no problems whatsoever; we care more about winning than we do ourselves.

Michael Shank Racing did it with a pair of drivers hoping Sundays victory in the Grand-Am Rolex 24 at Daytona is the kickoff to their career comebacks. NASCAR driver AJ Allmendinger closed out the twice-around-the-clock win by piloting the No. 60 Ford Riley for the final stint, a nearly three-hour drive that included some door-to-door banging with Allan McNish for the lead. It was Allmendingers first win in a major series in almost six years, and comes about a month after he landed the job of a lifetime with Roger Penskes NASCAR team. I feel very fortunate, Allmendinger said. This is one of the reasons why I love this race, because it really kicks off SpeedWeeks. Its such a prestigious race. Its one of those races you want on your rsum and you want to say that you were part of a victory. Its amazing. Im going to cherish this. IndyCar Series driver Justin Wilson, meanwhile, turned in his own strong performance with a threehour drive during the morning hours that proved hes healthy but more importantly, hes still fast after a six-month layoff because of a broken bone in his back. Wilson announced recently hes reuniting with Dale Coyne Racing for the upcoming IndyCar season. Hopefully this is the start of a good season, Wilson said. We just have to work it out.

Green, of the AFC, Sunday during the second quarter of the Pro Bowl in Honolulu. Associated PressHONOLULU Brandon Marshall caught six passes for 176 yards and a Pro Bowl-record four touchdowns, and the AFC used a second-half surge to beat the NFC 5941 on Sunday. The Miami Dolphins wide receiver had a touchdown catch in each quarter, including an early 74-yarder and a 3yarder in the fourth, in a game filled with highlight-reel catches. He was selected the games MVP and his four TD catches set a Pro Bowl record. The 59 points by the AFC set a Pro Bowl mark, and the 100 points scored by the two teams combined was the second highest, a touchdown shy of the 107 scored in 2004. But it was clear from the start it was Marshalls day. He hauled in a deflected, go-ahead 47-yard TD pass from Andy Dalton, while on his back, to give the AFC a 38-35 lead late in the third quarter. It was Marshalls third TD catch of the game, tying Jimmy Smiths Pro Bowl record set in 2004. Marshall, making his third Pro Bowl appearance, then nabbed a 3yard TD pass from Dalton that gave the AFC a 52-35 lead with 8:25 left and put the game away. The game featured 36 first-timers, including rookie quarterbacks Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers and Dalton of the Cincinnati Bengals, who replaced Super Bowl quarterbacks Eli Manning and Tom Brady.

B2 M ONDAY, J ANUARY30, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S PORTS Rock takes paper in Abu Dhabi; Tiger falters Associated PressABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates Tiger Woods talked all week about his improved ball control then it let him down when he needed it most. Woods resembled the Tiger of old over the first three rounds at the Abu Dhabi Championship, stringing together a trio of rounds below par before shooting an even 72 in Sundays finale to finish in a tie for third place behind winner Robert Rock and U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy. The 117th-ranked Rock shot 70 for an overall 275 to beat McIlroy (69) by a shot. Woods was a further shot back with Thomas Bjorn (68) and Graeme McDowell (68). The 18-year-old Italian Matteo Manassero (69) and George Coetzee (70) of South Africa were another shot back. Today I just didnt give myself enough looks at it, Woods said. Most of my putts were lag putts. I didnt drive the ball in as many fairways as I should have ... It was a day I was just a touch off the tee and consequently I couldnt get the ball close enough. It marked the second straight time Woods hasnt won with at least a share of the lead after 54 holes. He failed to win the Chevron World Challenge in 2010 after going into the final round with a four-shot lead over McDowell. Coming into Sunday, Woods was tied for the lead with the unheralded Rock and was the clear favorite to win. Rock had only one victory under his belt compared to 83 for Woods worldwide, but it was Rock battling his nerves over playing alongside one of his golfing idols who held it together down the stretch. Its pretty hard to believe that I managed to win today. Very surprised, the Englishman said. I played good. So I guess I had a chance from early on, a couple of birdies made the day feel a little bit easier. Woods started strong and it looked as though he might pull away from Rock, sinking a 40-footer on No. 2 for birdie and chipping to within a foot of the cup for a second birdie on the 3rd. But Rock didnt blink, making birdie on two of the first three holes to keep pace. Then Woods began to unravel. He started spraying his drives into the thick rough and fairway bunkers, resulting in bogeys on Nos. 4 and 5. When Woods wasnt missing the fairways, he was scrambling to save par after overshooting the green. Rock wobbled on the 18th when his drive landed in a pile of rocks near the water forcing him to take a drop but he recovered beautifully, reaching the green in four and two-putting for the win. I was just focusing on trying to hit fairways and then hit my iron shots as good as I have been and give myself chances at birdies, Rock said. Both Tiger and Peter struggled on occasions on a few holes and I managed to keep my ball in the right position and didnt put myself under too much stress until the last, which was a relief. It was a storybook ending for Rock, who rose from a club pro to join the European Tour in 2003 and only got his first tour win last year at the Italian Open. The victory will elevate him into the top 60. It doesnt get an awful lot harder than playing with Tiger Woods, Rock said. So I guess barring a major championship, I know I can handle that again. So thats pretty nice to know. McIlroy, playing ahead of Rock and Woods, birdied No. 18 to move to 12 under and give himself a chance. But he came up short with four rounds of par or better golf being undone by several costly mistakes the worst coming Friday when the third-ranked McIlroy was penalized two shots for brushingaway sand in front of his ball in the rough of the 9th. You know, youve got to take the positives, McIlroy said. Its the first week of the year, and you know, it looks like its going to be the second year in a row here that Ill finish second. But still a very good start to the season and something Ill build on. Associated Press Robert Rock from England tees off on the 14th hole Sunday during the final round of Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Associated PressSAN DIEGO Brandt Snedeker won the Farmers Insurance Open in a playoff not even he thought was possible. Kyle Stanley led by seven shots early in the final round Sunday, and he still had a four-shot lead as he stood on the 18th tee at Torrey Pines. Just like that, he went from being anointed a rising star to a meltdown that ranks among the most shocking in golf. Snedeker, in the group ahead of him, hit wedge to a foot for birdie and a 67, then drove up to the media tent for an interview as the runnerup. He arrived in time to watch Stanley spin a wedge into the water, then threeputt from 45 feet for a triplebogey 8 and a 74. Two playoff holes later, both were in shock. Snedekers tee shot hopped over the green and would have gone into a canyon except that it bounced off a television tower. He chipped to about 5 feet and made the par. Stanley three-putted again from just outside 45 feet, his 5-foot par putt catching the right lip. Its just crazy, Snedeker said. To get my mind around what happened the last 30 minutes is pretty hard to do right now. My heart is out to Kyle. I feel bad for him to have to go through this. Stanley, whose power, poise and polish was on display all week, was reduced to tears. His eyes were glassy and his lip quivered as he tried to answer questions, a sad ending to an otherwise spectacular week along the Pacific bluffs. Its not a hard golf hole, Stanley said. I could probably play it a thousand times and never make an 8. But he did Sunday, a painful lesson for the 24year-old out of Clemson. It was the second straight time Snedeker won a PGA Tour event by rallying from five shots behind in the final round to win in a playoff. He did it at Hilton Head last April and beat Luke Donald. This one was handed to him. Stanley birdied his first two holes and led by six at the turn until he started dropping shots from the sand. Even so, he made three straight par putts, starting with a 12-footer on the 14th, to seemingly regain control. The kid knows heartache. Last summer, he was two shots ahead at the John Deere Classic until he bogeyed the final hole from a bunker, and Steve Stricker closed with two straight birdies to win. This loss, however, put him in the wrong kind of company. It was reminiscent of Jean Van de Velde at Carnoustie, who made triple bogey on the last hole of the 1999 British Open and lost in a playoff; of Robert Garrigus, who made triple bogey on the last hole of the St. Jude Classic in 2010 and lost in a playoff; and even of Frank Lickliter at Torrey Pines, who three-putted from 12 feet on the 17th hole in 2001 to make triple bogey in the third playoff hole in losing to Phil Mickelson. I know Ill be back, Stanley said, pausing to allowthe words to come out of his mouth. Its tough to swallow right now.

Stanley blew a seven-shot lead. Stanley reduced to tears by loss Sticky gloves a favorite of NFL pros Associated PressIf the Super Bowl comes down to a key catch by Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots, say, or Victor Cruz of the New York Giants, theyll have more than merely their hands to thank. Those two players, like plenty of NFL tight ends and wide receivers, wear sticky gloves made with a rubbery material on the palms to help hold onto a football. Consider these mitts the 2000s answer to the 1970s Stickum, the gooey substance famously used by Oakland Raiders defensive back Lester Hayes and receiver Fred Biletnikoff, among others, before it was banned three decades ago. I wear gloves rain, sleet, hail, snow, outdoor, indoors. I got to have some gloves, Cruz said. I feel naked without gloves. Why? You grip the ball better, no question, Cruzs teammate Hakeem Nicks said. You dont even (need to) think about catching it. Take a close look during the NFL championship game in Indianapolis next Sunday; most of the players wholl be on the field will have their hands enhanced. What the league refers to as gloves with tactified surfaces with a synthetic material in the palm instead of old-school leather entered the football world more than 15 years ago. But equipment makers have developed increasingly helpful models over time, and the popularity has increased. I definitely think its a huge advantage for receivers, said Kurt Warner, a quarterback in three Super Bowls who now appears on the NFL Network. You see all these onehanded catches, and guys snagging balls, and you say, Whoa, thats almost impossible. It slows the spin on the ball. And its not just the guys paid to catch passes; defensive backs, linebackers, linemen use them, too even Patriots punter Zoltan Mesko, who wears a glove on his right hand when hes holding for extra points or field-goal attempts by kicker Stephen Gostkowski. Its more grippier. It gets the ball down quicker, Mesko said. Gronkowskis really stand out on TV, because theyre all white, and he wraps white tape around his wrists at the base of the gloves, making them look massive. Plus, he grabs pretty much everything thrown in his direction: Gronkowskis 90 catches this season ranked fifth in the NFL, and his 17 touchdown receptions set a record for a tight end. Patriots teammates such as BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Danny Woodhead and Matthew Slater swear by the gloves, too, although running back Green-Ellis wasnt quite prepared to give the equipment credit for his perfect record of zero fumbles in the NFL. Greg Jennings, a Pro Bowl receiver for the Green Bay Packers, said the main benefit he gets from the gloves is to protect his hands from the sting from a footballs laces. Oh, I can catch. Every receiver needs be able to catch barehanded, Jennings said. The gloves dont catch the ball for you. Its the hands. Thats certainly true, of course. Still, others do acknowledge some assistance from the gloves. They make your job a little easier, New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller said. We all could catch the ball without gloves, but with the grip on the gloves and with them somewhat serving as a layer of protection, I think wearing gloves is a no-brainer. Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph described his gloves as being thin and lightweight enough to give him the feeling of being able to actually feel the ball when he catches it. I feel like if theres a ball anywhere near me, and I can just get a hand on it, I feel pretty confident that Im going to catch it, whether its the gloves or hand-eye coordination. If I dont have gloves on, Rudolph continued, I might not be able to just grab it with one hand. It might slip out.

If the Super Bowl comes down to a key catch by Nicks, say, or New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, they will have more than merely their hands to thank. Those two players, like plenty of NFL tight ends and wide receivers, wear sticky gloves made with a rubbery material on the palms to help hold onto a football. Want hands like a wideout? Dont forget the gloves feature two rookie signal callers. While Dalton looked composed, Newton played horribly struggling to move the ball, stay in the pocket and find his targets, which drew some boos from the sun-splashed, sellout crowd of 48,423. Newton finished 9 of 27 for 186 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Dalton, meanwhile, was 7 of 9 for 99 yards and two TDs. On his first series, Newton overthrew a wide-open Tony Gonzalez over the middle, with the ball sailing into Eric Weddles hands. The San Diego Chargers safety popped up to his feet and returned it 63 yards to the NFC 23, leading to a 37yard FG by Sebastian Janikowski, which gave the AFC its first lead of the game at 31-28. With the Pro Bowlers unable to get out of third gear particularly on the offensive and defensive lines and hitting each other as though they were having a pillow fight, the Pro Bowl featured some good, bad and real ugly sometimes on the same play. For example, Aaron Rodgers caught a pass from himself. His throw was deflected at the line and he leaped to catch the ball and backpedaled for a 15-yard loss. The NFC had three players with 100-yard yard receiving: Gonzalez (seven for 114), Larry Fitzgerald (6 for 111) and Smith (5 for 118). The AFC and NFC traded score after score, and turnover after turnover in the first half. Rodgers and Fitzgerald connected for a pair of scores on back-to-back plays to put the NFC up 140 early in the game. Each AFC player earned a record $50,000 for the win, while the NFC players received $25,000. PRO BOWL Continued from Page B1
net, while Djokovic sat on his haunches. Eventually, a nearby official took pity and they were given chairs and bottles of water. Nadal held his composure during the formalities, and even opened his speech with a lighthearted one-liner. Good morning, everybody, he said. A few minutes earlier, after hugging Nadal at the net, Djokovic tore off his sweat-soaked black shirt and headed toward his players box, pumping his arms repeatedly as he roared. He walked over to his girlfriend, his coach and the rest of his support team and banged on the advertising signs at the side of the court. I think it was just the matter of maybe luck in some moments and matter of wanting this more than maybe other player in the certain point, Djokovic said. Its just incredible effort. Youre in pain, youre suffer(ing). Youre trying to activate your legs. Youre going through so much suffering your toes are bleeding. Everything is just outrageous, but youre still enjoying that pain. The match was full of long rallies and amazing gets. Djokovic finished with 57 winners, along with 69 unforced errors. Nadal had 44 winners against 71 unforced errors. Laver was part of the 15,000-strong crowd when the players walked on at 7:30 p.m. Sunday to flip the coin and start the warmup. He was still there, along with most of the crowd, after 2 a.m. for the trophy presentations. Djokovic called it the most special of his five Grand Slam wins. This one I think comes out on the top because just the fact that we played almost six hours is incredible, incredible, he said. I think its probably the longest finals in the history of all Grand Slams, and just to hear that fact is making me cry, really. Im very proud just to be part of this history. It went so long because Nadal refused to yield. He was trying to avoid becoming the first man to lose three consecutive Grand Slam finals and seeing his losing streak in finals stretch to seven against Djokovic, who beat him for the Wimbledon and U.S. Open titles and took his No. 1 ranking last year. After a grueling four-set loss to Djokovic at Flushing Meadows last year, Nadal said that, indeed, he may have found a slight opening a glimmer of hope for next time against the player who dominated the 2011 season and had dismantled him time and again over the year. This one was, in fact, closer, though not because of any strategic changes, but rather because Rafa summoned up the heart to take this one the distance. Nadal stayed in the contest for almost every point, sprinting from one side of the court to the other, chasing down balls and making Djokovic work extra time for the victory. But in the end, the same man was holding the trophy. T he seventh annual Crystal River Open is finished and made history. For the first time ever, a family has made a clean sweep of all the divisions they entered. This amazing feat was accomplished by the husband and wife team of Lisa and Wayne Steed. Together they won the mixed doubles with a 7-6, 6-1 win over Ruth Branson/Len Calodney. Before that, Wayne, with partner Vinnie Tremante, won the Mens B division with a 4-6, 64, 6-3 marathon win over Jerry Bolea/Mike Walker. Last but not least, Lisa joined up with partner Carrie Ingersoll in the womens division to complete the Steed Sweep with a 6-0, 6-3 win over Judy Long/Linda Martin. It was good to see several fans come out to watch some of the finals. To me, this tournament has always had a family feeling anyway; everybody is willing to help out and/or fill in if needed. So even as it is way down the road, I would encourage everybody to come and join this tennis family the next time around, which will be in October.

OPEN Continued from Page B1 Associated PressOTTAWA Marian Gaborik made New York Rangers teammate Henrik Lundqvist pay for not selecting him to play for Daniel Alfredssons team in the NHL All-Star game. Gaborik beat Lundqvist twice in the first period, finished with three goals and an assist, and earned MVP honors in leading Team Chara to a 12-9 win over Team Alfredsson on Sunday. Tim Thomas made 18 saves in the final period, and extended his record by winning his fourth All-Star game. Chara, with the eventual winning goal, Marian Hossa and Corey Perry broke the game open by scoring three times in a span of 1:22 that put their club ahead 11-8 with 6:34 remaining. Despite the loss, Alfredsson rewarded his hometown fans by leading his team with two goals and an assist. The Senators captain also hinted afterward that he is considering coming back for one more season. In an interview broadcast on the arenas scoreboard, Alfredsson was asked about his future. With a smile on his face, and fans cheering his name, Alfredsson said: Fifty percent yes, and my wifes going to have to decide the other 50. Henrik Sedin had a goal and two assists for Team Alfredsson. Gaborik became the 16th player to score at least three goals one short of matching the record in the AllStar game, and first since Rick Nash had three in 2008. The outcome was decided in the final period, in which Team Chara outscored Team Alfredsson 6-3. Hossa broke an 8-8 tie by scoring on a partial breakaway after being set up by Pavel Datsyuk with 7:56 left. Settling the puck, Hossa stopped in front and then backhanded a shot past Brian Elliott. Chara gave his club a 10-8 lead when Gaborik fed him a perfect pass into the middle for a snap shot past Elliott. For Team Chara, Hossa and Jarome Iginla had a goal and two assists, and Joffrey Lupul scored twice. Daniel Sedin, John Tavares, Jason Pominville and Milan Michalek had a goal and assist each for Team Alfredsson. Team Chara got off to a fast start, building a 3-0 lead on Gaboriks second goal 9:51 in. The club was so dominant that it was leading 2-0 before Alfredssons team got off its first shot. Gaborik certainly enjoyed getting the best of Lundqvist. After scoring his first goal on a give-and-go with Datsyuk, Gaborik circled the net dropped to one knee and pointed his stick at Lundqvist while pumping his fist. Lundqvist jokingly lamented about being beaten three times on eight shots, including twice by his Rangers teammate. Theres been a lot of trash talk, but it feels like its game over already, said Lundqvist.

The Raptors put together a 12-1 run midway in the second quarter, going from two points down to nine up at 40-31. They took a 44-39 lead into the half.

Terry put Dallas back in front when he took a pass from Dirk Nowitzki for a 12-foot baseline jumper with 42 seconds left. After Shawn Marion stole the ball from Gary Neal, Terry had two free throws with 17 seconds left to make it 101-98. Neal, who had 19 points, then drove for a layup and was fouled. But he missed a potential tying free throw.Lakers 106, Timberwolves 101MINNEAPOLIS Kobe Bryant had 35 points and 14 rebounds and Pau Gasol scored 28 to give the Los Angeles Lakers a much-needed road victory, 106-101 over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night.

While waiting to start the post-race news conference, he rested his head on a chair with his eyes closed. The two paired with Grand-Am regulars Ozz Negri Jr. and John Pew to give Shank its first win in one of the most prestigious sports car races in the world. Shank, who had a second entry that finished third, was nearly in tears in Daytonas storied Victory Lane. I am just grateful, he said of winning the 50th running of the 24-hour race. It was Shanks ninth attempt to win Daytona. Allmendinger was suffering from severe leg cramps at the end of the race, and had to be helped from the car in Victory Lane. While waiting to start the post-race news conference, he rested his head on a chair with his eyes closed. Im beat. Im cramping all over, he said nearly two hours after the race ended. Ive never felt anything like this. But its a good feeling. Wilson said he had cramping in his legs and lower back, but said it was unrelated to the broken vertebrae he suffered in an August accident at Mid-Ohio. He had to wear a protective shell for almost three months after the accident. Ryan Dalziel was at the wheel for Starworks Motorsports second-place finish, and Felipe Nasr was driving for Shank when he crossed the line in third. Ford swept the top three spots of the Daytona Prototype class, and won the race for the first time since 1999. ROLEX Continued from Page B1 menality the current Canes exhibit has been laid down over the course of the past three years. Lattin took over a decent program three years ago and has molded a hardnosed group of players more concerned with winning and making the extra pass than making it into the newspaper. They dont go through the motions, Lattin said of his team. They come here and they work when theyre here. Of course, there still are leading scorers on the team (Connors and Garvin are both averaging around 14 points per game) and a leading rebounder (Garvin, in double digits). But six different Hurricanes have led the team in scoring for a single game. On the girls side, this is the most balanced squad county-wise since Lecantos 2004-05 squad. All six girls whove each led the way have the benefit of spending the last two or (in some cases) three years playing together under the guidance of Lattin, a former Citrus graduate himself. Impressively, no current Lady Cane was a jaw-dropping, otherworldly talent as an underclassman. Hard, continuous work and perseverance ruled among the roster. Theres not one person who completes this team, Garvin said. You dont want to have one person do everything. You want everyone helping each other out. Sure, most of the players are uniquely skilled. In fact, its not hard to see that Lynch is a whirling dervish at the point-guard position, pestering opponents on defense while distributing the ball offensively. Connors is a sharpshooter who can also put the ball on the floor and is a good enough passer to occasionally lead the team in assists. Toxen, the youngest starter, can do a little bit of everything. Her height allows her to be active defending and rebounding while her athleticism allows her to fill the lane on a fast break and knock down the open shot in the half-court. Both Garvin and Wheeler have gotten better down low after three varsity seasons and are a big reason why Citrus is tough to play against. Both Hurricanes are around 6 feet tall and gobble up the majority of Citrus rebounds. Weve all grown, Garvin said. Weve all gotten better and you can always continue to get better. Teams arent able to get many second shots against a skilled and unselfish group of Hurricanes and, at times, are also unable to prevent Citrus from firing off several attempts during the same possession. Garvin is more advanced offensively than Wheeler, but the pair work well in tandem patrolling the paint on both ends. Citrus junior varsity program went 20-0 as well, indicating that the Lady Canes future could be bright indeed. Without a run through the district playoffs and into the state playoffs, Citrus appears to realize the stellar regular season will be a bit empty. Were going to have to play our game, Lynch said. Weve got to have confidence in ourselves and not be intimidated by anyone else. Which were usually not. SISTERS Continued from Page B1 UConns slide continues Associated PressCOLUMBUS, Ohio Lenzelle Smith Jr. scored 17 points and had a careerhigh 12 rebounds as No. 4 Ohio State beat No. 20 Michigan 64-49 on Sunday. Jared Sullinger added 13 points and William Buford and Deshaun Thomas both had 12 for Ohio State (19-3, 7-2 Big Ten), which ran its winning streak over its archrival to six straight and eight of nine. Tim Hardaway Jr. had 15 points for the Wolverines (16-6, 6-3). Trey Burke, the conferences top freshman point guard, returned to his hometown to play for the first time against Sullinger, his former high school teammate, and finished with 13 points. Michigan fell to 1-5 on opponents home courts this season. The Buckeyes extended their homecourt winning streak to 38, the secondlongest in the programs 100 years. No. 7 North Carolina 93, Georgia Tech 81CHAPEL HILL, N.C. Harrison Barnes scored 23 points and North Carolina hit 10 3pointers in ending a four-game losing streak to Georgia Tech. Tyler Zeller added 17 points for the Tar Heels (18-3, 5-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who have won 12 of 13 games and extended their school-record home winning streak to 31 games. North Carolina shot 54 percent from the field, led by 20 points at halftime and by 24 in the second half of an easy win that moved the Tar Heels into a tie with Duke and Florida State atop the ACC standings. John Henson had 13 points and Reggie Bullock added 11 for the Tar Heels, while Kendall Marshall had 12 assists. Mfon Udofia scored 16 points to lead the Yellow Jackets (813, 1-6), who trailed by double figures the entire second half. The Yellow Jackets have lost five straight games and nine of 10 in the past five weeks. The only win during that stretch came at North Carolina State on Jan. 11.No. 16 Indiana 103, Iowa 89 BLOOMINGTON, Ind. Freshman Cody Zeller scored a season-high 26 points for Indiana which handed Iowa its third straight loss. Zeller made 11 of 12 shots and had four assists and three steals for the Hoosiers (17-5, 55 Big Ten), who scored more than 100 points in a conference game for the first time since defeating Iowa 110-79 on March 12, 1995. Christian Watford scored 15 points, Verdell Jones III had 14 points and nine assists and Victor Oladipo had 12 points and six rebounds for the Hoosiers, who had lost four of five. Josh Oglesby scored a seasonhigh 24 points and Matt Gatens added 20 for Iowa (11-11, 3-6), which shot 63 percent from the field, but committed 17 turnovers. Indiana was held to a season-low 50 points in a loss at Wisconsin on Thursday night, but had that many by halftime against Iowa. Notre Dame 50, No. 24 Connecticut 48 HARTFORD, Conn. Eric Atkins scored 13 points and Jerian Grant hit three key free throws late as Notre Dame got its third straight win and handed Connecticut its third straight loss. Grant had 11 points and Scott Martin added 10 for Notre Dame (14-8, 6-3 Big East), who controlled the tempo throughout. The loss spoiled the return of freshman guard Ryan Boatright for Connecticut (14-6, 4-4), who missed the last three games amid an NCAA investigation into his eligibility. He finished with six points. Notre Dame trailed 24-21 at halftime, but went on a 13-0 run to open the second half. Jeremy Lamb had 16 points to lead the Huskies and had a chance to tie the game after apparently missing his second free throw with 2.3 seconds left on purpose. He grabbed the rebound of the miss but his offbalance follow bounced off the rim at the buzzer.South Florida 81, Providence 78TAMPA South Florida is turning newfound confidence into victories. Hugh Robertson and Anthony Collins scored 15 points each, Ron Anderson Jr. added 14, and South Florida beat Providence 81-78 on Sunday. Toarlyn Fitzpatrick chipped in 13 points and Augustus Gilchrist 11 for South Florida (13-9, 6-3 Big East), which has already surpassed its overall (10) and conference (three) victory totals from last season. Anytime you win, that feeds into your confidence even more so, South Florida coach Stan Heath said. This is the halfway point (of the conference season) and weve put ourselves in a good position. Theres still a lot of basketball to play, and this league is a funny league. You can go into stretches either way, up or down. So, youve still got to take it one game at a time.

Today is Monday, Jan. 30, the 30th day of 2012. There are 336 days left in the year. Todays Highlight: On Jan. 30, 1962, two members of The Flying Wallendas high-wire act were killed when their seven-person pyramid collapsed during a performance at the State Fair Coliseum in Detroit. On this date: In 1862, the ironclad USS Monitor was launched from the Continental Iron Works in Greenpoint, N.Y., during the Civil War. In 1933, the first episode of the Lone Ranger radio program was broadcast on station WXYZ in Detroit. In 1948, Indian political and spiritual leader Mohandas K. Gandhi, 78, was shot and killed in New Delhi by Nathuram Godse, a Hindu extremist. (Godse and a co-conspirator were later executed.) In 1964, the United States launched Ranger 6, an unmanned spacecraft carrying television cameras that crashlanded on the moon, but failed to send back images. In 1972, 13 Roman Catholic civil rights marchers were shot to death by British soldiers in Northern Ireland on what became known as Bloody Sunday. In 1981, an estimated two million New Yorkers turned out for a ticker-tape parade honoring the freed American hostages from Iran. Ten years ago: nterim Afghan leader Hamid Karzai visited the World Trade Center site and placed a wreath of yellow roses by a memorial wall as he surveyed the ruins of Sept. 11. Five years ago: A propane tank explosion leveled the Flat Top Little General Store in Ghent, W.Va., killing four people. One year ago: Ryan Bradley won his first title at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Todays Birthdays: Actor Gene Hackman is 82. Actress Vanessa Redgrave is 75.

Lambert postpones Florida show NASHVILLE, Tenn. Miranda Lambert has rescheduled her Friday concert in Tallahassee to attend the funeral of a close friend. A news release Sunday said Lamberts childhood friend Mark Tex Adams was killed in a traffic accident in Florida this week. He was sideswiped by a vehicle after he had pulled over to help another driver. Its the second loss of a close friend in recent weeks for Lambert, whose father-in-law, Dick Shelton died Jan. 17. Lambert said in a tweet Thursday: I have lost a friend Ive had since 3rd grade today in a tragic accident. When will this pain end. Please pray for peace. Lamberts On Fire tour will now stop in Tallahassee on May 17. Idol alum heads to Broadway NEW YORK A former American Idol contestant is heading to Broadway with a character who, its safe to say, is truly two-faced. Constantine Maroulis will play the title dual role in a revival of the musical Jekyll & Hyde thats slated to come to New York in spring 2013 after a 25-week national tour that starts in San Diego on Oct. 2. The Tony Award nominated musical features a story and lyrics by twotime Oscar winner Leslie Bricusse and music by Frank Wildhorn Itll be directed and choreographed by Jeff Calhoun The musical made its Broadway debut in 1997 with such songs as This is the Moment, A New Life and Someone Like You, earning four Tony nominations. Desert Island Discs turns 70LONDON Margaret Thatcher chose Beethoven Piers Morgan wanted Dean Martin and boxer George Foreman selected The Beatles All You Need is Love. They are among the 3,000 guests who have appeared on the radio program Desert Island Discs, a British broadcasting institution that turns 70 on Sunday. The show asks illustrious or famous figures to discuss the eight pieces of music they would take with them to a deserted isle. At the end of each program, the guest is sent into imaginary exile, along with their choice of a book, a luxury and one of their eight records. Some 3 million listeners tune in each week to the show. Associated PressLOS ANGELES The Deep South drama The Help won three prizes Sunday at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, including best actress for Viola Davis and supporting actress for Octavia Spencer. The Help also claimed the guilds ensemble award, the shows equivalent of a best-picture prize. Davis and Spencer won as black maids going public with uneasy truths about their white employers in 1960s Mississippi. Jean Dujardin won the lead-actor honor for The Artist as a silentfilm superstar whose career crumbles when the sound era arrives. Christopher Plummer won for supporting actor as an elderly dad who comes out as gay in Beginners. The wins boost the actors prospects for the same honors at the Feb. 26 Academy Awards. Plummer would become the oldest actor ever to win an Oscar at age 82, two years older than Jessica Tandy when she won best actress for Driving Miss Daisy. Backstage, Plummer joked about whether he would like to win an Oscar, an honor so elusive during his esteemed 60-year career that he did not even receive his first Academy Award nomination until two years ago, for The Last Station. Spencer, a veteran actress who toiled in small TV and movie parts previously, had a breakout role in The Help as a brassy maid whose mouth continually gets her in trouble. On the television side, comedy series awards went to Modern Family for best ensemble; Alec Baldwin as best actor for Rock; and Betty White as best actress for Hot in Cleveland. You cant name me, without naming those other wonderful women on Hot in Cleveland, the 90-yearold White said. This nomination belongs to four of us. Please, please know that Im dealing them right in with this. Im not going to let them keep this, but Ill let them see it. The TV drama show winners were: Jessica Lange as best actress for American Horror Story; and Steve Buscemi as best actor for Boardwalk Empire, which also won the ensemble prize. For TV movie or miniseries, Kate Winslet won best actress for Mildred Pierce, while Paul Giamatti was named best actor for Too Big to Fail. Before the official ceremony, the Screen Actors Guild presented its honor for best film stunt ensemble to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. The TV stunt award went to Game of Thrones. The winners at the SAG ceremony typically go on to earn Oscars. All four acting recipients at SAG last year later took home Oscars Colin Firth for The Kings Speech, Natalie Portman for Black Swan and Christian Bale and Melissa Leo for The Fighter. The same generally holds true for the weekends other big Hollywood honors, the Directors Guild of America Awards, where Michel Hazanavicius won the feature-film prize Saturday for The Artist. The Directors Guild winner has gone on to earn the best-director Oscar 57 times in the 63-year history of the unions awards show. The guilds ensemble prize, considered the ceremonys equivalent of a best-picture honor, has a spotty record at predicting what will win the top award at the Oscars. Though The Help won the ensemble prize, The Artist and George Clooneys family drama The Descendants are considered stronger contenders for the best-picture Oscar. Mary Tyler Moore received the guilds lifetime-achievement award, an honor presented to her by Dick Van Dyke, her co-star on the 1960s sitcom The Dick Van Dyke Show. Miranda Lambert Constantine Maroulis J AKE C OYLE AP Entertainment WriterNEW YORK Beware the Liam in Winter. Liam Neesons The Grey topped the weekend box office with $20 million, according to studio estimates Sunday, continuing the actors success as an action star in the winter months. The Alaskan survivalist thriller opened above expectations with a performance on par with previous Neeson thrillers Taken and Unknown. Those films, both JanuaryFebruary releases, opened with $24.7 million and $21.9 million, respectively. But the R-rated The Grey, which has received good reviews, drove home the strong appeal of Neeson, action star. Its an unlikely turn for the 59-year-old Neeson, previously better known for his dramatic performances, like those in Schindlers List and Kinsey. Liam is a true movie star, period, said Tom Ortenberg, CEO of Open Road Films. Its the second release for the newly formed distributor, created by theater chains AMC and Regal. My guess is that Liam Neeson in action thrillers would work just about any time of year, Ortenberg said. January is often a dumping ground for less-stellar releases, a tradition held up by two badly reviewed new wide releases: Man on a Ledge, with Sam Worthington, and One for the Money with Katherine Heigl. One for the Money fared better, earning $11.8 million, while Man on a Ledge opened with $8.3 million. Those were reasonably solid returns, and, in an unusual twist, were both ultimately for Lions Gate Entertainment. Its film studio, Lionsgate, released the romantic comedy One for the Money. The action thriller Man on a Ledge was released by Summit Entertainment, which Lions Gate bought for $412.5 million earlier this month. One for the Money was helped by a promotion with Groupon, the Internet discount site, with which Lionsgate previously partnered for The Lincoln Lawyer. David Spitz, head of distribution for Lionsgate, said the large number of older, female subscribers of Groupon matched well with the audience of One for the Money. Groupon email blasts, he said, had a significant promotional effect. Last weeks box-office leader, Underworld: Awakenings, Sonys Screen Gems latest installment in its vampire series, came in second with $12.5 million, bringing its cumulative total to $45.1 million.

It isnt likely youll run into the same obstacle that previously blocked you. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Its erroneous to believe, as others say, a very important arrangement is slipping from your control. Regardless of what others try to get you to think, know that the opposite is true. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Youre presently in a very good cycle for fulfilling your desires and expectations, but good things can only happen if you believe in yourself.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Normally it isnt too smart to have too many irons in the fire simultaneously, but your case may be an exception. The more you have going for you, the better your chances are for success. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) It wont be because youll be more forceful or assertive than usual that youll have a greater impact on others; it will be because your enthusiastic manner is so uplifting. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Dont be indifferent about situations that are running smoothly and producing good results for you. If you have the will to do so, they can be improved upon even further. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Your ability to evaluate and utilize information so well is likely to be the envy of all your associates. Theyll see and hear what you do, but wont know how to copy your results.

Here are my answers to the bidding questions in my Christmas Competition, although I accepted anything that was sensible. If South deals, I suggest one club one diamond one heart three spades (splinter bid) four diamonds (the hand is slam-suitable, and showing the ace or king in partners first-bid suit is important) four no-trump, ending in six hearts. When North is the dealer, see the diagram. Yes, Roman Key Card Blackwood would be good to confirm that the heart queen is missing. You hold the North hand. (a) South opens one diamond. What would you bid? One heart. (b) South rebids one spade. (i) What would you do now? Two clubs, fourth suit game-forcing. (ii) How do you envision the auction continuing? You will support diamonds, then look for a slam. You hold the North hand. South opens one club. What would you respond? One diamond look for a fit in all three of your suits. You hold the West hand. With neither side vulnerable, East opens one spade and South passes. What would you respond? Two spades or a sporting four spades! You hold the East hand. With neither side vulnerable, West opens two spades, showing a decent six-card suit and 5 to 9 high-card points. After North passes, what would you do? Anything but pass. Four spades, four no-trump, three no-trump, five spades, six spades; let your imagination roam.

I work in an office where a 35-year-old man is dating a female co-worker who is 50. I believe they both care for each other, but he is concealing his sexual orientation. I happen to know he has a boyfriend in another city. I have not mentioned this to anyone not only because it could hurt his position in our conservative company, but also because its not my business. However, Ive begun to wonder whether I ought to say something to his girlfriend. She is going through hell. Hes nice to her and takes her out to lunch often, and she reports their doings with stars in her eyes. Then they will fight, and she avoids him while he waits to get back in her good graces. She doesnt understand whats going on, and shes miserable. I dont think hes going to tell her the truth, and at this point, she would be furious if she knew he has been leading her on. What would you suggest? Should I butt in to save her? I still have to work with both of them No Name, No City Dear No Name: We strongly urge you to stay out of this. Your female co-worker realizes she is miserable in this relationship, but is still unwilling to break it off. Unless there is physical abuse, relationship issues between co-workers are not your business. Its very likely that your comments would be resented, and this could damage your work environment. Dear Annie: I am a psychologist with a heartfelt piece of advice for those whose teenage children are struggling with addictions or other issues, and who arent facing the situation squarely. Many parents hope their teen will grow out of it. The problem is, most dont. When the child is under age 18, parents still have lots of power. They can sign their child into a treatment center and communicate with the doctors. This power is lost once the child reaches 18. Doctors are not allowed to talk with family members of legal adults unless the child signs consent. And an angry young adult who resists treatment is not likely to sign (or attend treatment, for that matter). Yes, parents can tell the child that treatment is a condition of financial support, but this can backfire because parents are understandably hesitant to force a mentally ill or addicted child onto the street. It breaks my heart to see parents of young adults wringing their hands over their childs substance abuse, bipolar disorder or whatever, when that child could have been forced into treatment years earlier. Please, parents, recognize this window of opportunity when you have it. A Concerned Psychologist Dear Concerned: Unfortunately, it can be difficult to recognize the severity of the problem at the time, and some things, like schizophrenia, are not apparent until the child is older. Parents do the best they can, but those who fear their child is slipping away should make sure to seek help while they still have the opportunity. Dear Annie: I agree with your advice to Left-Out Sister, but why does she wait for her older sister to tell her what the Sunday plans are? Why doesnt she initiate a chat so they can make plans together? Or she could make her own plans with Dad if she wants. She knows that Sunday comes around every week. Theres no reason for her to always be left hanging. She sounds too passive. She needs to get involved and ask whats up for the weekend and become part of the decisionmaking. P .J.
