Three weeks ago, Gov. Rick Scott removed Dr. V. Upender Rao and Ed Lytton from the CCHB. Only Debbie Ressler and Chairman Michael Smallridge remain. Scott has not announced his appointments for the hospital board, leaving CCHB officials in a perpetual wait-and-see mode. We dont have a quorum, so we cant do anything, Ressler said. That includes paying bills. Other than paying its employees chief operating officer Vickie LaMarche and finance officer Harry Kilgore companies that submit invoices for payments must wait until the next board meeting. CCHB attorney Bill Grant is one of those not being paid. He said he isnt concerned. Some vendors dont like that they have to wait to be paid, he said. Every single 38 years in education Principal Tyler grew a reputation during time at Lecanto High School M IKE W RIGHT Staff Writer LECANTOK elly Tyler is the man in the white shirt, simple tie, glasses and a bullhorn in his office. I only use that when I have to, Tyler said. That isnt often. Tyler may be soft-spoken, but he speaks volumes. Well be in a meeting, and he sits back, he listens, Superintendent of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel said. At the end youll hear Kelly say, Id like to say this ... They all turn and listen to Kelly. I think hes well respected by all. Tyler will attend his final graduation ceremony May 22 as Lecanto High School principal. The education veteran of 38 years, including 29 in Citrus County, is retiring in June. Im looking forward to it, Tyler, 59, said. Its a little scary, though. Tyler, who grew up on a farm, taught agriculture at Williston High School in the mid 1970s. When he made the switch in 1983 to start up the agriculture program at the new Lecanto High School, he found a much different student base. At Williston it was fairly common that the top 10 students in the school were in the ag program, he said. When I got here, they were really growing more houses at that time than crops and livestock. Still, Tyler built a successful agriculture program at Lecanto High. During his nine years teaching, his students won state awards in a variety of areas. Tyler also served part of that time as the activities director. Tyler became an assistant principal for one year, and then-Superintendent Jimmy Hughes transferred Tyler to the district office to service as director of vocational education. It was exactly the job he wanted. Ive always been partial to vocational education, he said. Its something I believe in. Hospital board waiting for appointments by Gov.

Citrus County has 375 structures classified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as repetitive loss structures. These are National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) insured buildings that have had at least two paid flood losses of more than $1,000 each in any 10 year period since 1978. However, in the past several years, HMA grants from the Repetitive Flood Claims (RFC) and the Severe Repetitive Loss (SRL) programs were not used to full capacity. Citrus County, its municipalities and the Florida Division of Emergency Management, are partnering to help property owners with FEMAs Repetitive Flood Claim (RFC), Severe Repetitive Loss (SRL) and Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA), Programs.

STAMP OUT HUNGER: Piles of food U.S. Postal Service collects tons of food Saturday./ Page A3 BUSINESS: Leaving YahooCEO Scott Thompson steps down Sunday./ Page A12 Can teaching infants to swim curb drowning rate? A NNE G EGGIS The Gainesville Sun GAINESVILLE The happy hullabaloo of eight young cousins frolicking one summer afternoon ended when 23month-old Evan Haddock drowned. His mother, Angela Haddock, talks freely about the tragedy that shook her world to the core and why his namesake, his 7-week-old sister Evangeline, is going to learn to save herself in water as soon as she learns to crawl soon after the 6-month mark. I never thought it would happen to me Im one of those over-protective mothers who always know where their kids are, said the Gainesville mother of six. But drowning happens silently, she discovered. And experts say it can happen in less time than it takes to load a washer with dirty laundry. Statistics show Florida leads the nation in the drowning rate of children younger than 4 years old killing the equivalent of nearly four preschool classrooms of children every year. Already, the seasonal toll is starting to add up. A Dunnellon 3-year-old drowned in an inflatable pool recently, and on Feb. 21 another 3-year-old drowned in northwest Gainesville after wandering from his grandfathers home. And while state government efforts have focused on making pools safer requiring fences around new ones interest is growing in teaching water survival skills to even the marginally mobile. The American Academy of Pediatrics two years ago revised its previous position, which advised against swimming lessons until after a childs fourth birthday. Research suggests there is a benefit to earlier lessons, the academy now states. For Harvey Barnett, who received his MATT STAMEY /The Gainesville Sun Micah Boyd, 8 months, floats on his back April 20 during an Infant Swimming Resource class in Gainesville. The class teaches children ages 6 months to 6 years how to perform self-rescue skills in the water. See SWIM / Page A7
L OU E LLIOTTJ ONES Special to ChronicleThe clock has started ticking on taking public comment on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers draft report on the Tarmac King Road mines environmental impact. The public has two opportunities to offer comments: A public meeting at 7 p.m. May 31 in Inglis. By sending comments to the Corps until July 21. The report outlines eight possible scenarios, ranging from no mining allowed to limiting where and how long the company can conduct limerock mining operations on 2,757 acres of a 4,750-acre site near Inglis. The company is proposing to conduct mining for at least 100 years on the site. Some of the alternatives would limit it to as little as 30 years. The company is also proposing to send a little more than half of the mines daily output 500 truckloads of limerock south on U.S. 19 through the heart of Crystal Rivers tourism and commercial district. The trucks would also make return trips through the same route. Jeff Harris, who has been shepherding the Tarmac project, said it was a happy day when he received the report. I am very, very happy, he said in a phone interview Friday. The report represents $10 million and eight years of parent company Titan Americas effort to bring the Levy County mine to fruition. The first mine permit application was filed with Levy County in 2004, and the Levy County Commission granted a special exception permit to the company in May 2011 by a 4-1 vote. The permit is being contested in court by WAR Inc., the Withlacoochee Area Residents who claim it violates various elements of the countys land use and comprehensive plan and will cause environmental harm to wetlands and area water supplies. It lost at the county level and the case is in the state 1st District Court of Appeal. No one with WAR was available to comment on the report, which was emailed by the Corps to stakeholders and public officials a week ago. Mailed copies of the twovolume report a total of 876 pages started reaching officials and public libraries late this week. Copies of the report can also be downloaded at www.kingroadeis.com, the Corps website for information on the mine application. Harris said the draft report is not taking a position on whether the mine will be permitted under the federal Clean Waters Act. They dont draw any conclusions, he said. They just note what would be impacted by mining operations, such as the Eastern indigo snake, water levels and traffic. He said the Corps is presenting the different scenarios and taking public comment, then it goes back and addresses those. He said if there is anything new, then they start working on the environmental permit. By issuing this, they want to see if the public has anything to add, Harris said. Harris said the report is an intermediate step in the process in that it presents the data to be examined. Harris said as the Corps did its study, the company identified and corrected its own plan to meet concerns. Harris said some of the alternatives make the level of investment tentative and noted alternatives No. 7 and No. 8 would make the mining area smaller. No. 7 has (mining allowed for) 37 years. And theres nothing that says after 37 years we could not go back and try for another permit. Harris said, We could work with any of them, except for 1, obviously. Theres not a deal breaker in there yet. Lou Elliott Jones is editor of the Chiefland Citizen.

S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterINVERNESS Pounds and pounds of food by the truckloads rolled into the Inverness Post Office on Saturday for the 2012 National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. Grocery bags filled to the brim with non-perishable goodies practically spilled onto the pavement below as carriers opened the rear of their vehicles, revealing their abundant loads. Quickly, volunteers on site worked to empty the mail trucks, so they could load their vehicles to drop the food off at Citrus United Basket (CUB). Marc Williams, a custodian at the Inverness Post Office, said food had been coming in all week for the drive. A veteran of the event, he said the event helps distribute roughly 8 billion pounds of food nationwide to people in need. At his post office, they have received much as 20,000 pounds. Were expecting a lot of food this year, he said. Waiting for the first trucks to arrive, Leroy Meahl, a member of CenturyLinks community relations team, said he has been volunteering for the food drive for more than 10 years. The very first year, he said people donated about 5,000 pounds of food. Last year, Citrus County residents donated more than 64,000 pounds of food. Over the years, Meahl said he has seen the food drive grow. The need has always been there, he said, but now more people are becoming aware of societal issues such as hunger. In addition, he said big companies and organizations are getting involved now, which makes a difference. As the noon hour came and went, another CenturyLink volunteer, Wesley Weed, marveled at the quantity of food pouring into the post office. This might be, he said, a record-breaking year.Chronicle reporter Shemir Wiles can be reached at 352564-2924 or swiles@chronicle online.com. Piles, pounds of food U.S. Postal Service collects tons of food Saturday to stamp out hunger S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterHOMOSASSA Work continues on Cardinal Street to build the two 7,200-squarefoot buildings to house We Care Food Pantry and the Community Food Bank of Citrus County distribution center. When all is complete, John Marmish, president of the Community Food Bank of Citrus County board of directors, said the community food bank with We Care would work to feed all of Citrus County. However, in the meantime, Diane Toto, president of the We Care Food Pantry, said people are curious to see the facility. They just want to see what were doing, she said. Therefore, both groups will welcome the public to sneak a peak from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 19, of the new warehouse at 5259 W. Cardinal St. It will be the perfect opportunity to show the public what weve been able to build for the community, Marmish said. We just want to show off what weve done, Toto said. A lot has been accomplished thanks to the communitys support and the generosity of a number of donors, Marmish added. With 90 percent of the funds needed to finish the buildings raised, they are extremely close to the finish line. Were almost there. Were so close, she said. In addition to opening the warehouse for tours, Marmish said the open house would serve as a way to make a distinction between the groups. The venture is a partnership between We Care Food Pantry and the Community Food Bank of Citrus County. Its a strong partnership, Marmish said. Within that alliance, We Care will continue to serve its clients on the west side of the county, Toto said, while the community food bank will supply agencies serving the entire county. They will be the lead agency, Toto said, referring to the Community Food Bank of Citrus County. We will be a pantry. They will be a bank. However, even though two groups are at the helm of the project, Marmish said every hunger-fighting organization is invited to be a part. Because at the end of the day, it is about making sure people do not go hungry in Citrus County, he said. Cookies and light refreshment will be served at the open house and information available about volunteer opportunities will be available. For more information about the open house or how to donate to the distribution centers building fund, call We Care Food Pantry at 352628-0445.

C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterA Beverly Hills man allegedly was recognized by residents at a house robbed at gunpoint Saturday morning because he visited the previous evening. Jerrell Sharod Smith, 28, of 40 S. Lincoln Ave., Beverly Hills, was arrested at 6:15 a.m. Saturday and charged with the felonies of home invasion/robbery and five counts of aggravated assault with a firearm. His bond was set at $85,000. According to a report from the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, Smith visited a house on South Adams Street, Beverly Hills, at 11 p.m. Friday to obtain prescribed medication from the homeowner. Then, at 2 a.m. Saturday, the homeowner and another occupant answered a knock on the front door. Two men armed with handguns forced their way into the residence and demanded money and medication, while pointing guns at the five occupants and putting guns to the head of the homeowner, according to the report. The homeowner said both men wore black shirts pulled up to their noses to cover their faces. However, the homeowner said Smith was recognizable as he has been known for several years and his voice was familiar. He also was wearing the same clothes as during his earlier visit, and he was known by his dreadlocks and demeanor. Smith was reported to have responded to his name. The homeowner said the two men stole medication, $140 in cash and Nintendo gaming discs. Another occupant of the house said one of the men wore black sneakers with red striping around the top. Contact was made with Smith at his home. Smith admitted to obtaining the prescription medication the previous evening, but said he had not left his residence any other time. After Smith was transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility and a search warrant was obtained, officers found two pairs of black and red sneakers, some ammunition and some clothing. Anyone who has information about this crime or the identity of the second black suspect is asked to call 911 immediately. Or contact Crime Stoppers of Citrus County Inc. by texting CITRUS plus your tip to 274637 (CRIMES), clicking on www.crimestopperscitrus. com or calling 888-ANYTIPS toll-free.

A yes vote was to pass a bill (HR 5652) to avert automatic, across-the-board defense cuts next fiscal year. Rich Nugent, Yes. Lobbyists' Federal Pensions: Voting 170-232, members defeated a bid to Democrats to amend HR 5652 (above) by denying federal pensions to any former House members of senators who become lobbyists after leaving Congress. A yes vote backed the proposal over arguments it should be subjected to normal legislative procedures, not added to this bill at the close of debate. Nugent, No. Justice, Commerce, Science: Members voted, 247163, to appropriate $51.1 billion in fiscal 2013 for the Justice and Commerce departments and agencies such as the National Science Foundation and National Aeronautics and Space Administration. A yes vote was to pass a bill (HR 5326) cutting spending for these agencies by 3 percent from the 2012 level. Nugent, Yes. Voter ID Laws: Members voted, 232-190, to prevent the Justice Department from interfering with state voter ID laws. This followed the department's blocking of such laws in South Carolina and Texas as racially discriminatory. It acted under authority of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. A yes vote backed the amendment to HR 5326. Nugent, Yes. Violence Against Women: Members defeated, 181233, a bid by Democrats to add $20 million to funds already in HR 5326 (above) for programs dealing with violence against women. A yes vote backed the increase even though the GOP said the bill finances programs to protect women at higher levels than President Obama sought in his 2013 budget request. Nugent, No. Export-Import Bank: Members voted, 330-93, to fund the Export-Import Bank through 2014. The bank provides loans and guarantees to help U.S. firms export to markets that are politically or economically risky. A yes vote was to send HR 2072 to the Senate over arguments it was unwarranted government interference in the free market. Nugent, Yes. Student-Loan Interest: Senators failed, 52-45, to reach 60 votes needed to end GOP blockage of a bill preventing interest rates on student loans from doubling, to 6.8 percent, on July 1. Republicans objected to the bill's ending a tax break that enables certain owners of S corporations to reduce payroll-tax obligations to the Treasury. A yes vote was to start debating S 2343. Bill Nelson, Yes; Marco Rubio, No. Key votes ahead: In the week of May 14, the House will take up the fiscal 2013 defense budget and the Violence Against Women Act, while the Senate will debate a reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank. 2012 Thomas Reports Inc. Call: 202-667-9760. QUESTION: Should the county donate buildings to nonprofit groups to ease the budget strain? Yes. If a building is deemed nonessential, let nonprofits make good use of it. 15 percent (82 votes) No. Nonprofits will be eager to take them, but fail to recognize the cost of upkeep and insurance. 3 percent (16 votes) Yes, but only if theres a clause stipulating the buildings revert to county ownership if vacated or not kept up. 40 percent (216 votes) No. Put them on the market and let someone pay for them. 42 percent (225 votes) Total votes: 539.

Its no different than if the board skips a month. Its not that unusual. A 2011 law gives trustees the ability to pay some invoices prior to a full board vote. Grant said that probably wouldnt be necessary unless the vacancies stay open longer than a month or two. If push comes to shove and it becomes critical, the trustees have authority to pay under $25,000, Grant said. There shouldnt be any concerns about that. The lack of quorum hasnt stopped CCHB in its tracks completely. Smallridge appeared before the Citrus County Commission on Tuesday, offering the CCHBs help with paying a disputed $300,000 in Medicaid payments that state officials say the county owes. The county is joining the Florida Association of Counties in suing the state over the Medicaid payment issue. Because the hospital board cannot meet, Smallridges offer was made without Resslers knowledge. Ressler said Smallridge should have waited until the hospital board is intact. I would have preferred he discussed it at a board meeting, she said. I think we could discuss it and see where it goes from there. Im not opposed to exploring it. Smallridge also didnt discuss the idea with Grant to get the attorneys opinion whether the expenditure moving property tax money from the CCHB to the county commission is allowed. The 2011 law states the CCHB may contract for services with other providers, such as the health department. Smallridge said he believes that includes offering financial help to the county commission. Smallridge said its up to county commissioners to ask the CCHB for assistance, now he has brought the idea to their attention. Right now, the ball is in their court, he said. They need to tell me how we can help them. Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at 352-563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.

The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) agreed last week to buy the Fishnet Motel with a $247,221.48 grant from the Florida Department of Transportation. The motel on West Halls River Road is shown as closed, according to Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation records. As County Administrator Brad Thorpe described the drainage project, Commission Chairman Winn Webb asked for an update on a contamination issue from the Homosassa Springs Shopping Center on the northwest corner of U.S. 19 and West Halls River Road. Thats part of the project, Thorpe said. What were going to attempt to do is develop a drainage basin system that is going to take care of that issue. If you remember, there was an old dry cleaners that had been there. Theyd been dumping chemicals back behind the building for years. Positive readings for contaminants had come up in some of the monitoring wells, Thorpe said. As this unfolds, its going to change the way the drainage basin works in that area and hopefully improve the spring, Thorpe said. Commissioner John JJ Kenney asked if a canal ran behind the plaza. Thorpe replied a canal was present and runoff from it flowed into Pepper Creek and then into the Homosassa River. A lot of that runoff goes directly into the Homosassa River, Thorpe said. Its affecting the water quality in that area. If we can get this project completely done, the way its designed, its going to improve the water quality of one of our Florida outstanding waterways. In addition to unanimously approving the project, the BOCC approved: Placing a ballot question on the Nov. 6 general election ballot seeking approval of a levy of an additional 0.25 mil of ad valorem taxes for the Citrus County School district. A lease agreement with Annie Johnson Senior and Family Service Center for $150 a month from April 1, 2012, through March 31, 2013. This is paid for through grant funds with no county funding. A modification to the State Housing Initiatives Partnership (SHIP) agreement with Habitat of Humanity of Citrus County for $535,000 to serve the needs of 22 families. It has no impact on the county budget. An application for Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant for $31,704, which needs no cash match. The 2012-14 community agency agreement with Progress Energy for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, which has no impact on the county budget.

Tyler was more than content to stay in the district office, overseeing vocational programs, until the principals opening at Lecanto High School. David Hickey, then the superintendent of schools, suggested Tyler make the switch back to LHS. Mr. Hickey thought Id be a good principal, Tyler said. I always thought I wasnt worthy of the job. That was 11 years ago. Ive been very blessed with a great staff, students and community, Tyler said. Tyler has seen many changes over the years. Perhaps the biggest is the states focus on accountability with students, teachers and administrators that is driven by testing. Theres certainly nothing wrong with accountability. In the early years of my career, there was not enough accountability, Tyler said. We have moved too fast to try to make this happen. We havent really stopped to realize the impact it is having on the schools. On the other hand, Tyler acknowledged its because of accountability that schools focus on students and their individual achievements. Weve come a long way towards meeting the needs of students, he said. Were teaching reading at the high school level every day. Fifteen years ago we didnt teach reading in high school. LHS assistant principal Doug Connors, who has known Tyler since 1983, said the school wont be the same without Tyler at the helm. Its going to give us a big void, Connors said. Hes a great leader. The teachers respect him. Incoming principal Jeff Davis called Tyler the ultimate professional. They say some people leave their footprint. Hes truly left a heart print, Davis said. Hes done so much for that community and that school. Hes leaving it in very good shape. Tylers immediate retirement plans include driving a motor home out West with his wife, Jackie, a Forest Ridge Elementary School teacher, to visit the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas and California. Ive never been west of Dallas, Tyler said. Leaving school the final time will be tough, he acknowledged. Its going to be with mixed emotions, Tyler said. Im looking forward to the next chapter in my life. Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at 352-563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.

Associated PressBUFFALO, Texas The dark suit and tie Joe Gutheinz wore set him apart from other customers inside a Texas eatery where the usual attire is jeans and cowboy hats. An appetite for downhome cooking wasnt what brought the former NASA investigator to the Pitt Grill recently. He was on a quest to identify and maybe recover some of the rarest treasure brought to Earth and then lost: moon rocks. Were educating the states and countries of the world about how much theyre worth on the black market and we need to increase the security in museums and need to put them back on display, Gutheinz said. The rock samples were collected by the dozen American astronauts who walked on the lunar surface between 1969 and 1972. U.S. states, territories, the United Nations and foreign governments received them as gifts. The samples, which also were loaned to museums and given to scientists for research, range from dust particles to tiny pebbles. A lot of them are in storage. And we need to put them in an inventory control system. And thats whats really lacking, said Gutheinz, a Houston lawyer who also teaches college classes in investigative techniques. At the Pitt Grill in Buffalo, Texas, Gutheinz was meeting a former toy manufacturer from Colombia who contends his piece of the moon is from the more than 48 pounds of material collected in 1969 by Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the first manned lunar landing mission. Rafael Navarros asking price on eBay for dust scraped from his rock is $300,000. The dust weighs 0.03 grams, roughly the same as a grain of rice. Bottom line is, from a common sense perspective, this is a train wreck waiting to happen for him and hes inviting it, Gutheinz said. Hes opening the jail cell door and walking through it. I wish him well, but hes really defying everybody by doing this. Navarro, 67, said he didnt fear possible fallout from illegally possessing what could be federal government property or risking fraud charges for selling something as a moon rock when it may not be. NASA cant prove they ever had this moon rock, he said. That part may be true. The fact that something purporting to be a moon rock even shows up on eBay illustrates the greater problem of no one keeping proper track of the gifted and loaned rocks and the fate of many being unknown. NASA, which keeps its collection of rocks at Johnson Space Center in Houston and a facility in New Mexico, has confirmed the lack of oversight and promised to tighten controls, concurring with a critical audit report last December from its own Office of Inspector General, where Gutheinz worked as a senior agent. He left NASA in 2000 after 10 years. From time to time, I get a call from somebody that has a moon rock and his father or her father died and was a scientist, Gutheinz said. And they ask, What do I do with it? I tell them, Give it back to NASA. Thats a real problem. In the days of the Apollo space program, the idea of not returning to the moon again and again wasnt a concern. So it was believed that more and more rock samples would come, too. But its been 40 years since astronaut-geologist Harrison Schmitt and Apollo 17 mission commander Gene Cernan in 1972 became the last men to walk on the moon. The total amount of collected lunar materials has amounted to 842 pounds, including 2,196 individual rock, soil and core samples. Those subsequently have been split into about 140,000 subsamples, according to NASA. Gutheinz was responsible for the 1998 Operation Lunar Eclipse sting at NASA and intercepted a $5 million sale of a moon rock President Richard Nixon gave to the government of Honduras after the last Apollo mission. Of the 270 moon rocks given to nations around the world as gifts, Gutheinz said 160 are unaccounted for, stolen or lost. Another 18 moon rocks from Apollo 11 and six from Apollo 17, gifted to U.S. states, also are unaccounted for or missing. Gutheinz and students from his classes are responsible for directly or indirectly recovering 79 moon rocks since 2002, including lunar rocks presented to several governors. A retired dentist had the West Virginia rock, which Sandy Shelton, one of Gutheinzs former students, tracked down. I am very pleased that I was able to give back to West Virginia what was rightfully theirs, and to know that the young generation will have a piece of history to look at from the moon, said Shelton, who lives in Minneapolis. Bill Clintons gubernatorial items yielded the Arkansas moon rock. The Alaska rock is now part of a court battle. The Missouri rock was found among boxes of things when former Gov. Kit Bond retired from the U.S. Senate. The late Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafis U.S. moon rock remains lost. But theres evidence a grandson of the late Spanish dictator Francisco Franco has tried to sell his grandfathers U.S. gift in Switzerland.

James Jamie Stemler, 43FLORAL CITYJames Jamie Reid Stemler, age 43, of Floral City, surrounded by his loving family, passed away at his parents home in Floral City on May 12, 2012. He was commissioned to heaven for his greatest art project ever. Born in Allentown, PA, he spent his early teens in Bolton Landing, NY, before he moved to Floral City and graduated from Citrus High School in 1987. Jamie was an amazingly talented artist and owner of several T-shirt design/silk screening businesses through his lifetime. His skills with pencil and colored pencil transcended reality. When brain cancer paralyzed his right side, he refused to let the disease steal his artistic spirit. Instead, his insurmountable creativity shone through and he taught himself to watercolor paint with his left hand. His passions included drawing beautiful women and scenery. He loved to travel and enjoyed the outdoors, boating, fishing, skiing and tennis. Jamie is survived by his mother and stepfather, Trudy and Bob Logan of Floral City; father, Ronald Stemler of Bolton Landing, NY; sister, Julie (John) Leroux-Ross of Pittsburgh, PA; and nephews, Joshua and Justin Leroux and James Ross of Pittsburgh, PA. A celebration of Jamies life will be held at Chas. E. Davis Funeral Home in Inverness at 12 p.m. Saturday, June 2. The family is extremely grateful for the love and support of neighbors and friends, and the professional, caring staff from Hospice of Citrus County of the Nature Coast, in Inverness, who helped to provide and care for Jamie as he bravely battled a debilitating disease. Memorial donations can be made to the Hospice group at this location or the American Brain Tumor Association.

Lawyer on quest to find missing moon rocks Associated Press Houston-area attorney Joe Gutheinz reviews documents April 23 in Buffalo, Texas, from a Colombian man, Rafael Navarro, who contends he has a moon rock and is offering pieces from it for sale on eBay for $300,000. Gutheinz, a former investigator for NASA who practices law outside Houston, hunts for moon rocks, now-missing samples collected by the dozen American astronauts who walked on the lunar surface between 1969 and 1972.
Associated PressNEW YORK Cosmetics maker Avon changed course on a buyout offer it had previously rejected, declaring Sunday it would consider selling itself to Coty after Coty sweetened the deal. In a two-sentence statement, Avon said its board would respond to Coty within a week. Coty Inc. offered $23.25 for Avon on March 30, or about $10 billion. On Wednesday, Coty sent Avon a letter raising the price about 6.5 percent to $24.75 per share, or almost $10.7 billion. It demanded a response by Monday and said it would withdraw its offer otherwise. Avon Products Inc., whose brands include Skin-SoSoft, Anew and mark, had told Coty it wouldnt discuss any revised offer until its new CEO, Sherilyn McCoy, finishes reviewing all of Avons operations. doctorate in psychological foundations from the University of Florida, the academys change in position vindicated the ideas he has been testing for the past 46 years. He has been working to prevent child drownings since he saw his infant neighbors body being loaded into an ambulance after drowning in a drainage ditch behind his East Coast Florida home. Barnetts Infant Swimming Resource, developed in Gainesville, has trained hundreds of thousands of young children and now the children of some of those children to overcome the reaction toddlers usually have to falling in water. Usually they freeze up, dont know to close their mouths to stop the intake of water, and simply sink, he said. The foundation of Barnetts program is simple. I thought, If a 1-year-old can walk, fall down and walk again, why cant they learn to swim? he said. If they are capable of crawling on land the left leg can oppose the right leg then they can learn. Last year, his program was adopted by Californiabased CrossFit Kids, which is partnering with select YMCAs to offer scholarships to those who might not be able to afford the classes. The program involves daily instruction over a fourto six-week period and can cost hundreds of dollars. Mikki Martin, director of youth training for CrossFit Kids, said it was a natural fit between the swimming instruction and her organization, which seeks to develop a lifelong love for fitness. They have a very unique method to train kids for the unexpected, she said of Infant Swimming Resource, calling it developmentally appropriate. Eight-month-old Micah Boyd, of Gainesville, was keeping up a steady squall of complaint recently during his water safety lesson at the Dwight H. Hunter Northeast Pool. But his mother, Devin Boyd, 30, shrugged it off her two other children have been through it, too. They fuss and cry, but its for their safety, she said. Ilana Black, who is a master instructor for Infant Swimming Resource, breaks her lessons down into 10-minute periods that are reinforced for a stretch of days. The short sessions accommodate toddler-sized attention spans while building muscle memory. You can tell someone how to ride a bike, but that wont teach them, explained Black, who has been teaching Barnetts program for 11 years. You have to get on a bike and build that muscle memory. She places Micah feet first in the water. His mouth closes. His blue eyes are wide open. But he pushes his head and shoulders sideways, pulls his feet to the surface and rolls onto his back. I love working with children, said Black, describing how she takes to heart every child drowning she reads about. I love the cause and the difference it makes. You build close relationships. Lisa VanderwerfHourigan, director of the Office of Injury Prevention in the state Health Department, said the more pools a county has, the more young children will drown. Legislation that passed in 2000 requires all new pools built after 2000 have one of the following: an enclosure, a pool safety cover, exit alarms on doors, or selfclosing and self-latching devices. But the majority of the states pools were built before 2000. Over 90 percent of the pools that Florida has dont have to meet the requirements, she said. But swimming lessons might not be the answer for all children, she said, urging parents to consult with their pediatrician. A parents decision about starting swimming lessons or water-survival skills training at an early age must be individualized on the basis of the childs frequency of exposure to water, emotional maturity, physical limitations and health concerns related to swimming pools, she wrote in an email. But instructor Black said she is confident any child older than 6 months can learn. If they are mobile and they can get to the water, we want them to have the skills to help themselves, she said. Joe Stokes, 41, of Gainesville, now a nurse manager for the clinical trials of the donor transplant program at Shands at the University of Florida, said he tends to agree with Black. His children, now ages 2 and 4, started taking lessons when they were 9 months old, following in the footsteps he took at 4 years old. He was one of Barnetts students before it was called Infant Swimming Resource. For him, the instruction is a must. Kids can sneak out of the house in the blink of an eye, he said. Youve got to have some security knowing that they have at least a fighting chance, he said. Meanwhile, Angela Haddock and her husband feel so strongly about it, they have donated scholarship money for children to take the classes their own children have taken since their sons death. If a child cant float and falls in, she said, you wont hear the child calling for help.

Four killed in bombings in Iraq Associated PressBAGHDAD A pair of bombings killed four people Sunday in attacks targeting Iraqs security forces, officials said, while the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad maintained it will continue training Iraqi police despite cutbacks to the program. The first bomb exploded near a security patrol in the western city of Ramadi, killing one policeman and wounding seven people. Hours later, a suicide bomber blew himself up at a security checkpoint in Baghdad, killing three people including two policemen and wounding nine more. Police and hospital officials in Ramadi and Baghdad confirmed the casualty figures. All spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information. Violence has dropped across Iraq since the days when the country teetered on the brink of civil war just a few years ago, but deadly attacks still happen nearly every day. Insurgents launch frequent attacks on Shiites and security forces loyal to the Shiite-led government in an attempt to revive sectarian fighting in the country. The U.S. Embassys $500 million police training program has been touted as one of the main efforts to continue supporting Iraqi security forces in the wake of the American militarys withdrawal last December. A recent report by U.S. government auditors found the Police Development Program is the embassys most expensive initiative with Iraq. Last month, the embassy reported to the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction that it was withdrawing American advisers from the Baghdad Police College.The New York Timesreported Sunday the embassy has dramatically slashed the program and may eliminate it by the end of the year. The U.S. Embassy denied the report, saying in a statement Sunday there are no plans to end the program completely. Embassy spokesman Michael McClellan called the police training program a vital part of the U.S.-Iraqi relationship. He said the move to turn over the police academy to Iraqi officials would help save money but still allow advisers to help out in other ways. The police training program started last October after more than two years of planning how best to set it up, according to the audit. A month later, the Interior Ministrys principal deputy minister, Adnan al-Asadi, told auditors the program would be reviewed at the end of 2012 to see whether it was successful or necessary in the future. The State Department has said for months it is trying to trim, or right-size some programs to save money at the embassy in Baghdad, which has for years been the largest U.S. diplomatic mission in the world. The police program was identified in February as one program that might be reduced.

Arnold and Mary-Ann Virgilio volunteers and county substitute teacher for 22 years A s if Floridas private-sector employers didnt have enough government regulations to worry about, a federal agency now wants to tell them how to screen job applicants who have criminal records. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is now recommending in a 52-page Enforcement Guidance that private employers remove any question about a criminal record from their job application forms, and delay such inquiries until later stages of the hiring process. Such criminal background checks are critical because in Florida, when an employee with a criminal history commits an act of violence on the job, the employer can be sued by the victim for the negligent hiring of the aggressor. The EEOC, the agency charged with enforcing most federal employment discrimination laws, promulgated the new guidance last month by a 4-1 vote. While Congress has never prohibited discrimination on the basis of a criminal record, the EEOC has concluded criminal background checks have a disproportionately negative impact on minority job seekers. An estimated 65 million Americans have arrest or conviction records, including more than 5 million Floridians. Proportionately, more blacks and Hispanics than whites are arrested or convicted of crimes. In accordance with the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act of 1970, more than 90 percent of employers routinely have consumer reporting agencies perform criminal background checks on some or all job applicants. The new EEOC guidance does not prohibit this. What the government now wants private employers to do is conduct an individualized assessment of each job applicant with a criminal record and to consider, prior to making a job offer: (1) the nature or gravity of the offense or conduct; (2) the time that has passed since the offense or conduct and/or completion of the sentence; and (3) the nature of the job sought. Further, the EEOC would like employers to provide every applicant not offered a job due to a criminal record an opportunity to explain why he or she should not be disqualified from the employment opportunity. In short, the government would like for more ex-cons to be hired by private employers, but without providing any protection from lawsuits for those who take the risk. Dissenting EEOC Commissioner Constance S. Barker had this to say about the new guidance: All this new guidance does is to put business owners between a rock and a hard place: conduct criminal background checks to protect your employees and the members of the public you serve, and you bear the risk of having to defend your action as discriminatory; dont conduct the background check, and you take the risk that an employee, or a member of the public, will be harmed. While the guidance is framed as best practices rather than mandatory rules, this much is clear: Employers should now expect EEOC discrimination charges and lawsuits from excons turned down for a job because they have a criminal record.

HR directorSandra Frederick ............................ managing editor Curt Ebitz ........................................ citizen member Mac Harris ...................................... citizen member Rebecca Martin ................................ guest member NEW APPROACH Monitor iBudget closley T he states newly launched Medicaid waiver program is ambitious, but we reserve passing judgment on its effectiveness until we see it in action. The program, called iBudget Florida, is funded with tax dollars to serve Floridians with developmental disabilities. People with autism, Down syndrome, intellectual disabilities, spina bifida, cerebral palsy and PraderWilli syndrome will be helped by the program. The benefits of the new program are its flexibility, reduced amount of red tape and opportunity for individualizing plans. These benefits are certainly desirable, since reducing the amount of bureaucracy means more money will be available for the programs clients. Additionally, the flexibility of being able to use ones money for the individual services that benefit (him or her) the most is certainly a better way to manage care. However, the initial process appears to be labor-intensive, as each of the 30,000 consumers will need to have a personal review. Following a review, consumers will then face adjustments, as the system is designed to use a formula that determines the amount of money available to the individual. Our skepticism comes from the knowledge that the state has woefully mismanaged its Medicare and Medicaid accounting, passing along the costs to each county even though the state is aware of numerous errors in the accounting system. Given this poor track record, we wonder how effectively this new system will operate. Another shortcoming of this new system is limited funding; more than 20,000 are on a waiting list to receive services. The iBudget Florida program does not make it clear how to effectively serve all Floridians who require these services if the funding continues to fall short and the expenses of running the program are not significantly reduced. We still feel the better solution would be to work more closely with local service providers, like the Key Training Center, to find solutions. Listening and working together with those most knowledgeable about the care requirements and costs of services is a much more effective way to create long-term solutions. THE ISSUE: State unveils iBudget Florida program to serve Floridians with developmental disabilities.OUR OPINION: Work with service providers to maximize efficiency.

Or, fax to 352563-3280 or email to email@example.com LETTERS to the Editor Check the facts This is in response to Not enough guns, in response to Guns vs. government. The guy who wrote the article Not enough guns, hes saying no armed citizen can ever go up against the government, against the military, except another military. Well, did that person who wrote the article, Not enough guns, ever hear of guerilla warfare? Historically, if you look at American history, in the past we went against other countries militaries and we were able to beat their military. If every American armed themselves and our government tried to overtake us, and we went into the hills, theres probably more armed citizens than there (are) all the men in the military combined. I think we could beat our governments military if push ever came to shove. Just know your facts next time (you) write that kind of an article.We need compassionThis is in response to your Stop support, in your column today (May 3). I just want to say the writer was able to support his family because he probably earned a li vable wage and jobs were plentiful. Dont blame the young. (There are) so many upperclass retirees who put their assets in their kids names and have Medicaid as a secondary insurance and are on food stamps. There are so many upper-class retirees (who) fight for free samples at WalMart. How arrogant of the writer to say if a person cant afford to raise a child, too bad. I would rather give to that child than to someone like him, whos greedy. Thats what the country is becoming heartless. P .S. Come back, Checkers. Yes, I wish they would come back with Checkers.Thanks to Rotarians A huge shout-out of thanks to the Rotary Club of Crystal River for doing roadside cleanup along Fort Island Trail.

Indefinite expense Im calling about the sidewalks on (State Road) 44 and (County Road) 486. I understand DOT paid for the sidewalks on (S.R.) 44, and I understand our gas money, which was supposed to keep our roads improved and fill those potholes, paid for sidewalks on (C.R.) 486 that nobodys going to use. But my concern is the continued maintenance and the lawn maintenance and cutting around those sidewalks for years and years and years. Isnt that going to be a taxpayer expense every year for upkeep and maintenance and trimming these sidewalks?Draining coffersEveryone is experiencing a financial squeeze the federal government, state government and Citrus County. But we have plenty of money to do beautiful sidewalks that you never see people walking on. The money spent on sidewalks in Citrus County the last four or five years could have paid for all the cuts the county wants to make. When youre driving past the beautiful, unused sidewalks, just think, this could have paid for the 4-H, the pool, the library, senior centers, and all the other cuts the county wants to make.Signalmen jobs Todays Thursday, May 3. I enjoyed the article by a fellow sailor certainly a true hero. Im sure he meant no disrespect to Navy signalmen when he said being a signalman was boring. Ive just got to defend my old rank. It aint boring when you land on the beach in a Higgins boat with a bunch of Marines and all you got is a pair of semaphore flags and everybody the good, the bad and the ugly has got guns but you. Or when you get challenged from a signal tower, wont know where youre going when the admiral, he or she, reads out the message and says, Signal destination unknown. Or when youre in Turkey and the Russians signal, You cant come in the Black Sea, and we signal, You cant come down the Dardanelles.

I wish they would ban burning permanently. I see too many people tossing out their lit cigarettes. I remember about four years ago, we were at a stoplight on (U.S.) 19 heading south when the passenger in the car ahead of us tossed out a lit cigarette and a blue jay flew down and picked it up and flew back into a wooded area. Later I heard that there was a brush fire at that location. Sweet talker This call goes out to the gentleman (who) keeps the Situation wanted ad in the paper looking for the right lady, who seems to think she doesnt exist. Well, she does; I married her May 10, 1980. Happy anniversary, Babe. I love you.Salute the flag In Mondays paper, April 30, I applaud the sheriff for his day camp. I think it is a wonderful thing. However, I was appalled at the one picture showing the color guard bringing in the flags, the number of people (who) were not even standing at attention, let alone saluting the flag. No wonder our countrys in such a disarray when people cant even respect our flag. Not a factor This is in response to your Sound Off, Working women, where theyre talking about the fact that Ann Romney never worked in her life and doesnt understand the problems of women in the workforce. Well, personally, who cares what Ann Romney did? Shes not running for president; her husbands running for president. So as far as Im concerned, what his wife did isnt even a factor. The best person to win the presidential election will win and I believe that will be Mr. Romney So next time, stop bashing somebodys wife if theyre not running for president.Great job, JimHurrah to Jim Williams for his hilariously accurate depiction of our most prolific contributor to the Chronicle Harry Larry.

Yahoo CEO leaves business Associated PressNEW YORK Yahoo CEO Scott Thompson left the company four months into the job Sunday after more than a week of scrutiny into inaccuracies on his resume and in company filings. The struggling Internet company had hoped that Thompson, who became CEO is January, would turn things around. But he now becomes the fourth CEO to leave Yahoo in five years. He is being replaced by Yahoos global media head Ross Levinsohn. Thompsons exit was encouraged by Third Point, the activist hedge fund that owns nearly 6 percent of Yahoo shares. Third Point claimed Thompson had padded his resume with a degree in computer science from Stonehill College. Thompson did earn an accounting degree from Stonehill, a Catholic school near Boston, but he did not earn a computer science degree. Associated Press Yahoo CEO Scott Thompson stepped down Sunday. Associated Press A participant poses for pictures before the contest Saturday to elect the Queen of the Great Power in Spanish Reina del Gran Poder in La Paz, Bolivia. The contest takes place in advance of the Festival of the Lord of the Great Power in Spanish Festividad del Senor del Gran Poder, a festivity celebrated in June since 1939 centered on a cult to an image of Jesus anonymously painted in the 17th century. Official: 49 bodies left on highway MONTERREY, Mexico Forty-nine decapitated and mutilated bodies were found Sunday dumped on a highway connecting the northern Mexican metropolis of Monterrey to the U.S. border in what appears to be the latest blow in an escalating war of intimidation among drug gangs. Mexicos organized crime groups often abandon multiple bodies in public places as warnings to their rivals, and authorities said at least a few of the recent victims had tattoos of the Santa Muerte cult popular among drug traffickers. But Nuevo Leon state Attorney General Adrian de la Garza said he did not rule out the possibility that the victims were U.S.-bound migrants. The bodies of the 43 men and six women were found in the town of San Juan on the non-toll highway to the border city of Reynosa at about 4 a.m., forcing police and troops to close off the highway. Nuevo Leon state security spokesman Jorge Domene said at a news conference a banner left at the site bore a message with the Zetas drug cartel taking responsibility for the massacre. P AULINEA RRILLAGA AP National WriterYOUNGSTOWN, Ohio On the upper eastern edge of Ohio lies a valley built on the sweat of the working class, where steel mills sit mostly shuttered but a once-struggling Chevy plant endures. It is a place filled with union halls and blue-collar families for whom the auto bailout meant survival, delivered by a president many here see as their savior. The Mahoning Valley is, without question, Barack Obama country. And native Andre Allie is very much a Barack Obama man: An African-American who went with history by voting for him in 2008. A retired auto worker who made airbag parts. A lifelong Democrat and union member whose wife, brothers, aunt, cousins are all Democrats and union folks, too. But Allie is also a deeply religious man, an elder deacon at his Baptist church who quotes from the Bible with ease. And he fervently opposes what the president last week decided to publicly support. Its wrong. Period. Its just wrong, Allie, 54, said of the latest issue to push to the front of the presidential campaign. Major milestone Obamas declaration in support of gay marriage was undoubtedly a milestone in American politics and culture. But six months from an election that will decide whether the president keeps his job, a question hovers over the moment: Was it, somehow, a game-changer? In three very different regions of a state where the election could be won or lost, voters themselves have been considering that. And their reflections reveal something far more pragmatic than an electorate that shifts its views because of the headline of the day, no matter how historic. Allie is but one example, a voter as adamant in his opposition to same-sex marriage as he is in his support still of Obama. In his words: The world is bigger than gay marriage. And yet something has sprung from the dialogue the presidents words compelled. It may be far more subtle than a changed mind or a changed vote, but it is there all the same. Off-track philosophyFor some Ohio Republicans, the gay marriage comments only reinforced long-held suspicions of, and opposition to, Obama. But more than that, this statement feels like another in-their-face reminder that the country is headed off-track in ways that have nothing to do with job numbers and debt statistics. This is the Bible Belt, and we still believe what the Bible says, said Harty Wallingford, a civil engineer in Ohios Appalachian region. They can change the Bible in the city, but we wont change it here. Were not like California. Theyve just gone crazy there. Economy No. 1 A few days after Obamas comments, Ohio Sen. Rob Portman campaigned across the region east of Cincinnati with Brad Wenstrup, a Republican candidate in the congressional House district that Portman formerly represented. Portman, whose name has been bandied about as a possible running mate for presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney, opposes same-sex marriage but doesnt think Obamas statement in support of it changes the paramount issues. I mean, what people care about is how are we going to turn this economy around and what do you do with these record debts and deficits. Thats still mostly true in a part of Ohio that can sometimes swing in election years. There are strong Democratic roots in the region, but of the Reagan Democrat variety, because of views that can lean conservative on both fiscal and cultural issues. Democrat Bill Clinton carried this predominantly white and blue-collar swath of the state both times he ran. But then it became George W. Bush country, and Republican John McCain won over Obama here in 2008. Role of young voters The bustling campus of Ohio State University in Columbus is where Obama, little more than a week ago, decided to officially kick off his campaign for re-election. It was a nod to the role young voters played in helping him win Ohio in 2008, but also to the importance of getting that vote out again in 2012. With a robust gay and lesbian community, Columbus last year was recognized as an up-and-coming gay city by readers of the website GayCities.com, while OSU was ranked by Newsweek as one of the top 10 most gay-friendly colleges in the United States. If Obamas evolution on gay marriage was meant, at least in part, to invigorate young and gay voters, he may have succeeded at least with some. Re-examine thoughts Student David Achille, 25, last year went to New York to marry his partner, Edward, after Ohio in 2004 passed a referendum banning same-sex marriage. One day last week, Achille was standing inside a jail-like cage on the grassy Oval where students hang out, dressed in a firefighter costume to raise bail money for the gay mens fraternity Sigma Phi Beta. He heard about Obamas statement on Facebook, then watched for himself on YouTube. He said it kind of made me rethink everything. Associated Press Andre Allie, 54, gives his views on President Barack Obamas declaration in support of gay marriage, in Youngstown, Ohio. Although Allie is opposed to same-sex marriage, he still supports Obama. Queens?

Greek efforts for coalition founder ATHENS, Greece Critical last-ditch talks to form a coalition government in crisisstruck Greece foundered once more Sunday, leading the country one step closer to new elections, although the socialist party leader said he retained existing but limited optimism for a deal. The political uncertainty has alarmed the international creditors who have given Greece billions of euros in bailout loans over the past two years, and has thrown the countrys continued presence in the European Unions joint currency into serious doubt. From wire reports Nation BRIEF World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A12 MONDAY, MAY 14, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan A gunman in a car assassinated a former high-ranking Taliban official working to end the decade-long war in Afghanistan, dealing a powerful blow Sunday to the fragile U.S.backed effort to bring peace to the country. Arsala Rahmani, a top member of the Afghan peace council and a senator in Parliament, was killed a week before a key NATO summit and hours before President Hamid Karzai announced the third stage of a five-part transition that is supposed to put Afghan security forces in control of their country by the end of 2014. Police said an assassin with a silencer-equipped pistol shot Rahmani, who was in his 70s, as he was riding in his car in one of the capitals most secure areas, near Kabul University. The gunman fired from a white Toyota Corolla that pulled up alongside Rahmanis vehicle at an intersection. Rahmanis driver rushed him to a hospital, but he died on the way, police said. Rahmani was a former deputy minister of higher education in the Taliban regime that was ousted by the U.S.-led invasion in 2001. He eventually reconciled with the government and was trying to set up formal talks with the insurgents. The killing was another setback to efforts to negotiate a political resolution to the war. In September 2011, former Afghan President Burhanuddin Rabbani, who was head of the peace council, was assassinated in his Kabul home by a suicide bomber posing as a peace emissary from the Taliban. The Taliban denied responsibility for Rahmanis killing, although they had publicly threatened to target peace negotiators and others working with the government. Agha Jan Motasim, a member of the Taliban leadership council known as the Quetta Shura, condemned Rahmanis assassination.

Report: Three JPMorgan execs to resignNEW YORK JPMorgan Chase is expected to accept the resignation of one of the highest-ranking women on Wall Street after the bank lost $2 billion in a trading blunder, a person familiar with the matter said Sunday. The bank will accept the resignation of Ina Drew, its chief investment officer, the person told The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to discuss the decision publicly. Drew, 55, one of the highest-paid officials at JPMorgan Chase, had offered to resign several times since CEO Jamie Dimon disclosed the trading loss on Thursday, the person said. Associated Press
Baseball/ B2 Basketball/ B3 Scoreboard/B3 Sports briefs/ B3 Entertainment/ B4 Puzzles/ B5 Comics/ B6 Classifieds/ B7 Rays make moms proud, tighten race for lead in AL East./ B2 Section B MONDAY, MAY 14, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE R ICHARD B URTON CorrespondentOCALA Nick Cortes didnt have to look far in order to get to where he wanted to be. Cortes, a former standout point guard at Lecanto, recently inked a deal with nearby College of Central Florida in Ocala. The Patriots have been one of the most consistent junior-college programs in the state and started off ranked No. 1 in the nation back in 2009, with national player of the year Ricardo Ratliffe leading the way. With the likes of Ratliffe, who is projected as a potential secondround draft pick in this Junes NBA Draft after finishing up at Missouri, the success of CF landing players at larger four-year programs was attractive to Cortes. When I was in high school, I didnt realize that they were that good, but now they have a reputation for moving players on to bigger schools, said Cortes, who averaged 28 points, five assists and five rebounds as a senior at LHS, before he signed with Pasco-Hernando. You might average seven or eight points at CF, but coaches know the level of competition they have there and that you can go to a big school and compete for playing time. As a freshman at PHCC, Cortes earned quality minutes, with a majority of them in a starters role. PHCC, though, dropped from a NJCAA Division I level to Division II, which left Cortes looking to transfer. From there, he moved on to Webber International, an NAIA program, and redshirted. When I went there, I was real up-front with them, Cortes said. My ultimate goal is to play professionally overseas, and when I got to Webber, I could tell that their program wasnt for me. The coaches were cool, but it wasnt where I wanted to be. Enter CF assistant coach Tito Arias, the main recruiter for head coach Tim Ryans program, which hasnt missed the state tournament in seven years tops among JUCO programs in Florida. Arias contacted Cortes and invited him to attend the Patriots open gym workouts. They really wanted to see consistency, Cortes said. After several workouts, CF offered Cortes a scholarship. He accepted. They had lost all of their point guards (to graduation) and (Arias) called me and asked me if I was interested (in CF), Cortes said. Hes real cool. You can talk to him on a friend level and I felt comfortable with what they were doing at CF. The Patriots finished 25-8 last season and made it to the FSCAA State Championship Game, where they lost to eventual national runner-up Northwest Florida State. CFs starting backcourt of Hunter Williams and Christian Martinez are set to move on to the next level and Cortes and Rashan Suarez, another recent signee, look ready to fill the void. One thing that I have learned from high school to college is that you have to play where you fit in, Cortes said. The coaches at CF are smart and theyve recruited well and I think the guys that are coming in will mesh well. Im looking forward to it. Former Panthers point guard signs with CF Ocala L ARRYB UGG CorrespondentA popular 20thcentury song contained the line, You have to accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative. The song could be a theme song for Crystal River junior John McAteer. Crystal River High coach Tim Byrne said his star pole-vaulter has eliminated the negative and truly accentuated the positive. It works for him. The Pirates junior won the pole-vault title in the regional with a 12-foot vault. He also earned a trip to state in the 300 hurdles by taking fourth. He ran a 40.2. He also qualified in the 4x400 relay team, which placed third. Its time was 3:27. Napoleon Hutcherson, Corey Pollard and Jesus Beneditti were also in the relay.

See McATEER / Page B3 Associated PressMIAMI LeBron James got his trophy, and then he and Dwyane Wade made sure the Miami Heat got a win in Game 1. James scored 32 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in his first game as a threetime MVP Wade finished with 29 despite struggling from the floor, and the Heat beat the Indiana Pacers 95-86 to open their Eastern Conference semifinal series on Sunday. Chris Bosh scored 13 points for Miami, but left late in the first half with a lower abdominal injury and did not return. The Heat outscored Indiana 25-16 in the fourth, with Wade and James combining for 22 of those points. David West and Roy Hibbert each scored 17 points and combined for 23 rebounds for the Pacers, who got 10 points each from Darren Collison and George Hill. Game 2 is Tuesday in Miami. The Heat never led by more than two until 9:20 remained in the game, when a layup by James gave Miami a 76-72 edge. Wade added another basket about 30 seconds later, and the margin eventually reached eight when James made two free throws with 7:52 left. Back came Indiana, which got within 86-85 on a 3-pointer by Hill with 4:51 left after Miami went cold again. But one big flurry capped by a dunk from James in transition and Wade coming from behind to block a shot by Paul George at the rim about a half-minute later gave the Heat some breathing room. Wade and James scored 20 straight Miami points in the fourth, a string ended by a free throw from Joel Anthony with 1:05 left. After Hibbert missed a jumper on the next Indiana possession, James connected with 31.8 seconds left for a 95-86 Miami lead, and it was soon over. Wade shot only 8 for 23 from the field, and the Heat missed all six of their attempts from 3-point range a first in team playoff history. But the Heat held a 4538 rebounding edge, and allowed Indiana to make only 11 of 31 shots after halftime. Commissioner David Stern was on hand to present James with his MVP trophy in a pregame ceremony that was capped by the Heat star telling fans how electricity was going to be important throughout the playoffs. One team came out electrified and it wasnt Miami. The Pacers trailed for only 56 seconds in the first half, never down by more than a basket. Indiana opened the game with an 114 run, held Miami to 37 percent shooting in the first two quarters, and rode the strength of a 19-6 edge in bench scoring to take a 48-42 lead going into halftime. LeBron, Wade lead Miami to Game 1 victory Kuchar two too good at Sawgrass Associated PressPONTE VEDRA BEACH The only complaint about Matt Kuchar was not winning enough. He picked up a big one Sunday at The Players Championship. Kuchar avoided the big mistakes that slowed so many other contenders starting with Kevin Na and kept it out of the water on the TPC Sawgrass to eliminate the kind of drama he didnt need. He closed with a 2-under 70 for a twoshot victory. That famous smile, which he first showed the golf world as an amateur in 1998 competing on the biggest stages, was brighter than ever as Kuchar tapped in for par. He celebrated on the 18th green with his wife and two sons, and shared a hug and a high-five with his mother. His parents moved to Ponte Vedra Beach and Kuchar stayed with them all week. Coming off the green, he said he was about to buckle after such a week. Just like his golf on a dangerous Stadium Course, he kept it together. Its such an amazing feeling playing amongst the games best, to come out on top, to do it on Mothers Day ... it really is magical, Kuchar said. Along with the pressure of trying to win, Na had to put up with some heckling. Already considered a slow player, he struggles to take the club back without practice swings and waggles, and over the ball he could hear fans saying, Pull the trigger or Hit it. I backed off and theyre booing me, Na said. I said, Look, guys, I backed off because of you guys. ... But it is what it is. I also felt that a lot of people were turning towards me and pulling for me, which I really appreciate. Kuchar won for only the fourth time in his career, and the first time since the 2010 Barclays when Martin Laird three-putted the last hole and lost in a playoff. Laird made the strongest run on a cloudy, breezy afternoon, tying for the lead with this third straight birdie on No. 12. Laird nearly went in the water on the 18th, missed a 6-foot par putt for a 67 and wound up in a four-way tie for second. Rickie Fowler, going for his second straight win, tried to make it interesting with a birdie on the islandgreen 17th to get within two shots. Kuchar watched from across the water on the 16th green, and then rolled in a 15-foot birdie putt to give him a three-shot lead going to the par-3 17th. Every shot matters standing on a tee and looking at an island. Kuchar found land, threeputted for bogey and made a regulation par at the end. Fowler missed an 8-foot birdie putt on the 18th and shot 70. Ben Curtis made a 10-foot birdie on the 18th for a 68, while Zach Johnson shot 68 to join the tie for second.
C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE B ASEBALL Associated PressBALTIMORE Holding a six-run lead with James Shields on the mound, the Tampa Bay Rays appeared poised to end their threegame skid with a no-sweat victory over the Baltimore Orioles. The Rays won it all right, although it was anything but easy. Elliot Johnson and Ben Zobrist homered, Carlos Pena ended an extended slump with two doubles and two RBIs, and Tampa Bay squeezed past the Orioles 9-8 Sunday to avert a three-game sweep. The Rays led 7-1 in the fourth inning and 9-6 in the eighth, but it was 9-8 when Fernando Rodney got Matt Wieters to ground out in the ninth with runners on second and third with two outs. Third baseman Sean Rodriguez backhanded the final grounder while retreating and fired a one-hopper to first to get Wieters by a step. Rodney got his 10th save in 10 tries in a game that earlier appeared was going to be blowout. When I ran out on the field I was high-fiving everybody, yelling, We had it all the way, manager Joe Maddon said with a slight grin. Shields earned his sixth win for the Rays, now 2-6 in their last eight games. Tampa Bay entered the series tied atop the AL East with Baltimore and left town happy to have salvaged the finale. AMERICAN LEAGUE Mariners 6, Yankees 2NEW YORK Andy Pettitte made his much-anticipated return to the Yankees on Sunday, getting lavished with adoration while pitching into the seventh inning despite giving up a pair of two-run homers in New Yorks 6-2 loss to the Seattle Mariners. Nearly lost amid the excitement over Pettittes first major league appearance since retiring after the 2010 season was party crasher Kevin Millwoods performance for Seattle helped by three double plays. The 37-year-old Millwood (1-4) gave up three hits in seven innings and got his 2,000th career strikeout as Seattle avoided a three-game sweep. The Yankees tried to prevent their old pal Pettitte from taking the loss with a rally in the eighth against four Seattle relievers. Robinson Cano was walked with two outs by Charlie Furbush with the bases loaded to make it 4-2. Mark Teixeira, though, struck out to end the inning. Red Sox 12, Indians 1 BOSTON Jarrod Saltalamacchia homered during a six-run seventh inning and drove in five runs and the suddenly successful Boston Red Sox routed the Cleveland Indians. Daniel Bard (3-4) survived some early control problems and held the Indians to one run despite walking four and allowing six hits over six innings. Justin Masterson (1-3) also had control issues, falling behind 4-0 while facing all nine Boston batters in the first inning. He lasted six innings, allowing six runs on seven hits and hit three batters. Royals 9, White Sox 1 CHICAGO Jeff Francoeur hit his first homer of the season, pinch-hitter Johnny Giavotella had a big two-run double and the Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago White Sox 9-1 Sunday. Alcides Escobar went 3 for 3 with two walks for Kansas City, which broke it open with six runs in the ninth inning. Kansas City won for the fourth time in five games despite losing Danny Duffy to an apparent injury in the first inning. The left-hander faced three batters and recorded two outs before he trudged off the mound following a short discussion with manager Ned Yost and a trainer.Twins 4, Blue Jays 3MINNEAPOLIS Scott Diamond pitched seven shutout innings, Brian Dozier hit his first career homer and the Minnesota Twins held on to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-3 Sunday. Ryan Doumit and Jamey Carroll added two hits apiece for the Twins, who became the last team in the majors to reach doubledigit wins by splitting the four-game series. Matt Capps pitched a scoreless ninth for his seventh save in as many chances. Yunel Escobar and Eric Thames knocked in runs for Toronto, which closed its road trip 5-5. Tigers 3, Athletics 1OAKLAND, Calif. Justin Verlander struck out eight to win his fourth straight decision and the Detroit Tigers beat the ailing Oakland Athletics 3-1 on Sunday to salvage a series split. Miguel Cabrera hit a pair of RBI singles and Austin Jackson drew a bases-loaded walk in the sixth to put Detroit ahead, helping Verlander (4-1) win his 13th straight road decision dating to July 10. NATIONAL LEAGUEMarlins 8, Mets 4 MIAMI Giancarlo Stanton hit a twoout grand slam to cap a ninth-inning rally by the Miami Marlins, who beat an angry Frank Francisco and the New York Mets. The walk-off victory was the second in the three-game series for the Marlins, who have won 10 of their past 12 games. The Marlins trailed 4-2 when Emilio Bonifacio led off the ninth with his second triple of the game against Francisco (1-3). John Buck walked and pinch-hitter Greg Dobbs followed with an RBI single. Francisco was then replaced, and he walked slowly toward plate umpire Todd Tichenor, hollering angrily. Manager Terry Collins stepped between Tichenor and Francisco, who waved his index finger and then his cap at the ump. Reds 9, Nationals 6 CINCINNATI Joey Votto hit a grand slam in the ninth inning for his third home run of the game, rallying the Cincinnati Reds over the Washington Nationals. Washington came into the game with only 15 homers allowed all season, fewest in the majors. Votto broke out of his power drought and helped the Reds avoid a sweep with three perfect swings. He hit solo homers in his first two at-bats and finished a big day with his second career slam. It came against struggling closer Henry Rodriguez (1-3), who had trouble with his control on the wet mound. Rodriguez walked two batters to load the bases with two outs, then left a 2-2 pitch up and over the plate to Votto.Pirates 3, Astros 2 (12 innings)PITTSBURGH Josh Harrisons 12thinning single drove in Clint Barmes and the Pittsburgh Pirates came back for a 3-2 win over the Houston Astros on Sunday. Harrison was 0 for 3 before lining the first pitch he saw from Fernando Rodriguez (1-4) into left. Barmes had just hit a two-out double to left and scored from second. He slid under the tag of Jason Castro, who received a high throw from Justin Maxwell. The Pirates won for the fourth time in their past six games and prevented the Astros from winning a road series for the first time in 11 months.Phillies 3, Padres 2PHILADELPHIA Cole Hamels was stellar on the mound in his return from a five-game suspension, working seven innings of one-run ball to help the Philadelphia Phillies beat the San Diego Padres. Hamel allowed five hits while striking out five. Jonathan Papelbon worked a perfect ninth striking out two of the three batters he faced for his 10th save. Jimmy Rollins opened the game with his first homer this season off Padres starter Jeff Suppan (2-1).Cubs 8, Brewers 2MILWAUKEE Ian Stewart hit a solo homer and scored the go-ahead run on an error, helping the Chicago Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers to avoid a threegame sweep by their division rivals. It was the fourth homer of the season for Stewart, hitless in his previous four games. Reed Johnson added a pinch-hit home run in the sixth for Chicago. Braves 7, Cardinals 4ST. LOUIS Jason Heyward ended a 10-pitch at-bat with a bases-clearing double in the third inning, helping the Atlanta Braves give rookie Lance Lynn his first loss and beat the St. Louis Cardinals to complete a three-game sweep. Tommy Hanson (4-3) allowed one run in five innings with nine strikeouts and Martin Prado, Freddie Freeman and Dan Uggla each had an RBI in a three-run seventh. The Braves had lost seven in a row in St. Louis before Friday and swept the Cardinals for the first time since Sept. 11-13, 2009, also in St. Louis.Giants 7, Diamondbacks 3 PHOENIX Melky Cabrera singled four times to extend his hitting streak to 11 games, Gregor Blanco drove in three runs with a pair of hits and the San Francisco Giants beat Arizona 7-3 on Sunday to take two of three from the Diamondbacks.

Dodgers 11, Rockies 5 LOS ANGELES Bobby Abreu hit a three-run double and A.J. Ellis added a three-run homer during a sixth-inning rally Sunday that carried Ted Lilly and the Los Angeles Dodgers to an 11-5 victory over the Colorado Rockies. All-Star center fielder Matt Kemp, who leads the Dodgers with 12 homers and a .359 batting average, left the game because of an irritated left hamstring after grounding out in the third inning. He has played in 399 consecutive games, the longest current streak in the majors.

said Byrne. You dont tell him he cant do it. He wont ever say he cant do it. He always has the attitude that he can do more. You know he will always give you everything. He is a competitor. McAteer isnt a rah rah type of athlete, but he is a leader nevertheless. I would have to say he is a quiet leader, Byrne said. He leads by example. He is a perfect person to lead by example. He is liked by all the kids. You will never hear him say a negative thing about another kid. Its just not as common as youd like. He is a wonderful person. McAteer has been in track all three years. He also plays football and soccer. He starts on both teams. Originally from Ocala, he moved to Crystal River in the sixth grade. He wants to be a physicians assistant and would like a scholarship in football at a Division II school. McAteer likes to give others the credit for his success. My coach makes me train hard and what I put in is what I get out, McAteer said. Football and track are my favorite sports. Pole vault, a lot is technique. You have to have speed, strength and technique. He likes hanging with his teammates. I enjoy the camaraderie of the track team, he said. His positive energy may make him a major success this year and next. S COREBOARD C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE On the AIRWAVES TODAYS SPORTS COLLEGE BASEBALL 2 p.m. (SUN) Vanderbilt at LSU.

Kenyon Martin scored seven of his 11 points in the fourth quarter, and the Los Angeles Clippers advanced to the Western Conference semifinals with an 82-72 win Sunday over the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 7. The Clippers won only their third postseason series in 41 years and just their second since relocating to Los Angeles. They also avoided becoming the ninth NBA team to blow a 3-1 lead in a best-of-seven series. They move on to play the top-seeded Spurs starting Tuesday night in San Antonio. Chris Paul scored 19 points with a strained right hip flexor. Nick Young added 13 off the bench. Rudy Gay and Marc Gasol each had 19 for Memphis. AP source: Irving to be named NBAs top rookieCLEVELAND Kyrie Irving began his first pro season as the top pick and ended it as the top rookie. Clevelands smooth, playmaking point guard has been chosen as the NBAs Rookie of the Year, a person familiar with the voting told the Associated Press on Sunday. Irvings selection is hardly a surprise since the 20-year-old led all first-year players in scoring 18.5 points per game and renewed hope for Clevelands franchise. Hell receive the award on Tuesday, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the league has not yet announced the winner.Ricardo Santos wins Madeira Islands Open SANTO DA SERRA, Madeira Islands Ricardo Santos shot a 9-under 63 Sunday to win the Madeira Islands Open by four strokes, becoming the first Portuguese-born golfer to win on the European Tour in his home country. He rallied from four strokes down and birdied his closing three holes to set a championship record of 22 under on the Santa da Serra course. He also set a record for lowest winning final round in the 19-year history of the event. I dont have the words to describe this week as it is very emotional, he said. To win my first European Tour event in my own country is very special. It was a sensational round and definitely the best of my career. Swedens Magnus Carlsson shot a 67 and was runner-up. Denmarks Andreas Harto finished third, five strokes behind Santos. Santos graduated from the Challenge Tour to the main tour this year. With this victory, he earned a one-year tour exemption and an entry spot at the upcoming PGA Championship at Wentworth. It was amazing to have the crowds here supporting me, he said. It would be difficult to imagine a better win than this. US tops Finland 5-0 at ice hockey worlds HELSINKI Max Pacioretty of the Montreal Canadiens opened the scoring and the United States rolled to a 5-0 victory over defending champion Finland at the ice hockey world championships on Sunday. Kyle Palmieri of the Anaheim Ducks added a goal in the second period, followed two minutes later by a power play goal by Justin Faulk. Chris Butler of the Calgary Flames and Bobby Ryan closed out the scoring for the U.S team. The Finns also lost to Canada in the roundrobin tournament. Canada tops Group A with 16 points, followed the U.S. with 13 points and Finland with 12. If Finland beats Kazakhstan on Monday, it will again face the U.S. team in Thursdays quarterfinal.Federer rallies to beat Berdych in Madrid finalMADRID Roger Federer won the Madrid Open for a third time Sunday, rallying past Tomas Berdych 3-6, 7-5, 7-5 in the final on the new blue clay court. On the womens side, Serena Williams overpowered top-ranked Victoria Azarenka 6-1, 6-3 to capture the title. Federer prevailed in a tournament in which Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal had already been eliminated, both blaming the court for their early exits. Federer defeated an opponent who had beaten him in three of their previous five matches. Berdych hit 14 winners and made just two unforced errors in a dominant first set. Federer, however, found his ground game, breaking twice to even the score and force the decisive third set. He finally won after Berdych saved three championship points. Seven hospitalized, 31 injured after Spanish GP fireBARCELONA, Spain Thirty-one people were injured and seven hospitalized after a fire erupted inside Formula One team Williams garage after team driver Pastor Maldonado won the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday. Governing body FIA said 31 people were treated by Catalunya Circuit medical staff, with seven of those flown out to a variety of hospitals to receive treatment. Catalonias regional government said in a statement that one of the persons was airlifted to Barcelona hospital with serious burn wounds, while the rest were being treated locally for smoke inhalation. Williams confirmed a fuel leak caused the problem, with four of its staff treated for injuries. Three of those remained in hospital. The fire erupted soon after Maldonado and the team had taken the traditional victory photo in front of the team garage with members of all teams close by rushing to help contain the blaze.

Avengers on track to hit $1B at movies Today is Monday, May 14, the 135th day of 2012. There are 231 days left in the year. Todays Highlight: On May 14, 1912, the first movie inspired by the Titanic disaster was released just a month after the British liner sank. Saved From the Titanic, a one-reel drama produced by the Eclair Film Co. of Fort Lee, N.J., starred Dorothy Gibson, an actress who had been an actual passenger on the doomed ship; she wore for the movie the same outfit she was wearing when rescued. (Saved From the Titanic is considered lost, the only known copies having been destroyed in a fire in 1914.) On this date: In 1796, English physician Edward Jenner inoculated 8year-old James Phipps against smallpox by using cowpox matter. In 1804, the Lewis and Clark expedition to explore the Louisiana Territory as well as the Pacific Northwest left camp near present-day Hartford, Ill. In 1961, Freedom Riders were attacked by violent mobs in Anniston and Birmingham, Ala. Ten years ago: NATO and Russia reached a historic agreement in Reykjavik, Iceland, to combat common security threats in the post-Sept. 11 era. Five years ago: DaimlerChrysler said it was selling almost all of Chrysler to private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management for $7.4 billion, backing out of a troubled 1998 takeover. One year ago: At New Yorks John F. Kennedy International Airport, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, head of the International Monetary Fund and potential candidate for president of France, was removed from a Paris-bound plane and charged with sexually assaulting a Manhattan hotel maid, Nafissatou Diallo. (Strauss-Kahn later resigned; the charges against him were eventually dropped.) Todays Birthdays: Opera singer Patrice Munsel is 87. Former Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., is 70. Movie producer George Lucas is 68. Thought for Today: Silence cannot hide anything which is more than you can say for words. From the play The Ghost Sonata by Swedish author-playwright August Strindberg (born 1849, died this date in 1912). Associated PressNEW YORK Donald Duck Dunn, the bassist who helped create the gritty Memphis soul sound at Stax Records in the 1960s as part of the legendary group Booker T. and the MGs and contributed to such classics as In the Midnight Hour, Hold On, Im Coming and Sitting on the Dock of the Bay, died Sunday at 70. Dunn, whose legacy as one of the most respected session musicians in the business also included work with John Belushi and Dan Aykroyds Blues Brothers as well as with Levon Helm, Eric Clapton, Neil Young and Bob Dylan, died while on tour in Tokyo. News of his death was posted on the Facebook site of his friend and fellow musician Steve Cropper, who was on the same tour. Cropper said Dunn died in his sleep. Dunn was born in Memphis, Tenn., in 1941, and according to the biography on his official website, was nicknamed for the cartoon character by his father. His father, a candy maker, did not want him to be a musician. He thought I would become a drug addict and die. Most parents in those days thought music was a pastime, something you did as a hobby, not a profession, Dunn said. But by the time Dunn was in high school, he was in a band with Cropper. Cropper left to become a session player at Stax, the Memphis record company that would become known for its soul recordings and artists such as Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, Isaac Hayes and the Staples Singers. Dunn soon followed Cropper and joined the Stax house band, also known as Booker T. and the MGs. It was one of the first racially integrated soul groups, with two whites (Dunn on bass and Cropper on guitar) and two blacks (Booker T. Jones on organ and Al Jackson on drums), and was later inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The group had its heyday in the 1960s as backup for various Stax artists. Dunn played on Reddings Respect and Sitting on the Dock of the Bay, Sam and Daves Hold On, Im Coming and Wilson Picketts In the Midnight Hour. Booker T. and the MGs had its own hits as well, including Hang Em High, Soul-Limbo and, before Dunn joined the band, the cool 1962 instrumental Green Onions. I would have liked to have been on the road more, but the record company wanted us in the studio. Man, we were recording almost a hit a day for a while there, Dunn said. In the 1970s, the groups members drifted apart. Jackson was killed in Memphis in 1975 by an intruder in his home. Cropper and Dunn reunited when they joined Aykroyd and Belushis Blues Brothers band and appeared in the 1980 Blues Brothers movie. How could anybody not want to work with John and Dan? I was really kind of hesitant to do that show, but my wife talked me into it, Dunn said in a 2007 interview with Vintage Guitar magazine, and other than Bookers band, thats the most fun band Ive ever been in. Dunn also did session work on recordings by Clapton, Young, Dylan, Rod Stewart, Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty, according to his discography. Dunn once said he and Cropper were like married people. I can look at him and know what hell order for dinner, he said. When we play music together, we both know where were going. Dunn received a lifetime achievement Grammy in 2007. He is survived by his wife, June; a son, Jeff; and a grandchild, Michael, said Michael Leahy, Dunns agent.

Associated PressLOS ANGELES The Avengers is taking a page out of Supermans comic book flying faster than a speeding bullet to the billion-dollar mark at the box office. The superhero blockbuster took in $103.2 million to lead for a second-straight weekend, raising its domestic total to $373.2 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. With $95.4 million more overseas, The Avengers lifted its international receipts to $628.9 million and a worldwide haul of more than $1 billion, only 19 days after it began rolling out in some markets. You never think that it can happen this quickly, said Dave Hollis, head of distribution for Disney, whose Marvel Studios unit produced the ensemble film after a long buildup in its solo superhero outings. You hope you can get to this day, and the fact that it is happening this early is a testament to a lot of work that went in on the Marvel side over the past six years to get us to a place where people wanted to see the Avengers assemble. The Avengers easily fended off Johnny Depp and Tim Burtons vampire romp Dark Shadows, which had a so-so domestic start of $28.8 million to finish a distant No. 2. Thats far below such past Depp-Burton collaborations as Alice in Wonderland, which opened with $116.1 million, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which debuted with $56.2 million. Dark Shadows added $36.7 million in 42 overseas markets for a worldwide total of $65.5 million. The Avengers was the first movie ever to pull in more than $100 million domestically in its second weekend, passing the previous best of $75.6 million for Avatar. The film also topped $300 million domestically Saturday after just nine days in release, beating the previous record set by The Dark Knight, which hit that mark in 10 days. BOX-OFFICE RESULTS1. The Avengers, $103.2 million. 2. Dark Shadows, $28.8 million. 3. Think Like a Man, $6.3 million. 4. The Hunger Games, $4.4 million. 5. The Lucky One, $4.1 million. 6. The Pirates!

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, M AY 14, 2012 B5 P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Mason Cooley, an aphorist who died in 2002, said, After an argument, silence may mean acceptance or the continuation of resistance by other means. When on defense at the bridge table, even if you start with the best argument opening lead you might need to find the correct continuation to defeat the contract. How can East-West sink four spades in this deal? With 5 to 10 points and a decent seven-card suit, one would often open three of the suit. But when one is vulnerable against not and is holding a relatively weak suit, starting with a weak two-bid is sensible. North takes a shot at game, hoping his partner is short in diamonds. First, what should West lead? It is not normal to underlead an ace (lead a low card from a suit headed by the ace), and in this deal it is disastrous. South wins the trick, draws trumps and sets up the clubs. A trump lead does not serve any purpose, so the heart two stands out. If declarer ducks in the dummy, East should win with his queen and shift to the diamond queen to defeat the contract. Instead, lets suppose that South wins with dummys heart ace, draws two rounds of trumps and plays a club to his queen. What happens next? If East has the diamond king, the defenders can cash out if they can work out declarers distribution correctly. But here that does not work. There is only one winning continuation, which is far from obvious. West must lead his heart jack and East must overtake with his queen to switch to the diamond queen. If you know a pair who could do that, sign them up for your team.

I am currently undertaking two internships, and one of them will include a job offer when a position opens up. But I dont know if I should take it. I have always had a passionate desire to live in Europe. Since childhood, I have never wanted anything so much. Last year, I studied abroad in England, and it only made me more determined to go back. The internship job is terrific. Id love the position, and its also possible that there will be an opportunity to go to Europe as part of the program now and then. Or, I could chase my dreams and move to Ireland after graduation. I have found a one-year work-abroad program for recent graduates there. My parents think going to Ireland would be a mistake. They are worried that I wont find a job or a place to live. Their disapproval makes my decision so much harder, but, Annie, if I dont go now, I might miss the only opportunity I will ever have to do it. People always postpone their dreams for the sake of practicality and then realize too late that they never had the courage to live the life they imagined. Please help me decide whether to follow my head or my heart. Head in the Clouds Dear Head : A job is important, and the one you are looking at is a good one. But this year is likely to be the best (if not only) opportunity you will have to spend a year in a foreign country. Its also possible that the internship position will not open up for another six months or more. We think you should go to Ireland. But we also suggest discussing it with your current employer and asking whether the available position will still be around when you return. If they can be accommodating, it would satisfy your dream as well as your parents. Dear Annie : My brother has always been a selfish, self-centered person, but since our mother died, he has gotten much worse. He constantly insults his siblings, has stolen property from our mothers home and has ostracized himself from everyone (including lifetime buddies) with the exception of his wife and kids. Events that happened to me he now claims happened to him. One of the items he stole was a sports trophy that I won as a teenager. He will not return it, and he tells everyone that he won it. He displays it in his china cabinet. Is he grieving? Bipolar? We have almost given up on him but would like your advice. Unhappy Siblings Dear Siblings : We dont know what is wrong with your brother. If he truly believes the things he claims, it indicates mental illness. The death of a parent can send a borderline personality off the edge. Can you speak to his wife? Has she noticed that her husbands behavior is more extreme or unusual than before? If so, please urge her to get help for him. Dear Annie : The letter from Missing Mom in Maryland brought back some amusing memories. Our mom passed away in January. She was 88 years young. She left us a letter stating what she wanted everyone to have. She left me a quilt that my great-grandmother had handstitched, even though she had already given it to my nephew as a wedding gift five years ago. She left her bedroom set to my younger sister, but my older sister already had it. Mom put name tags on pieces of furniture. Some pieces had three names on them, and other tags had fallen off. We all had a good laugh about it. Thank goodness we all inherited her sense of humor. L Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
