SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Federal authorities approved a grant to help build a bridge into the Three Sisters Springs property. The infusion of the new funds should move up the planned public access timeline to the 57-acre property from summer of 2015 to perhaps as early as the end of 2014, according to City Manager Andy Houston. This is really a positive development, Houston said. Its a big step in the direction that U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the city are going. I am happy. Houston was notified Tuesday by the Federal Department of Transportation that the Three Sisters Springs project has qualified for the Federal Land Access Program (FLAP) grant worth $384,232. Houston expects the money to be released sometime in the spring. He said the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service was able to move some money around in this fiscal year and have paid for engineering work, which is 35 percent complete, on the proposed bridge/entrance to the facility from Cutler Spur Boulevard. Houston said it was Michael Lusk, the former Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge manager, who initiated and did all the paperwork for the FLAP grant. I think it shows USFWS is trying to move things forward, Houston added. He said without this grant, the earliest a bridge would have been built to the parcel would have been the summer of 2015. Officials have been under a lot of pressure recently to allow public access to the property as soon as possible, with people suggesting everything from a temporary foot bridge to a private, temporary takeover of the property until the USFWS can get enough money to On Jan. 22 Josh Nemzoffs lawsuit against Citrus County was settled. MONEY FOR NOTHING The hospital boards hiring of consultant Josh Nemzoff ended with a firing, a lawsuit and taxpayers out $500,000. MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerBefore April, no one in Citrus County had even heard of Joshua Nemzoff. The name should be more familiar today, since his hiring and firing by the Citrus County Hospital Board took more than $500,000 from the taxpayers pocket with nothing to show in return. The CCHB hired Nemzoff, of New Hope, Pa., to solicit bidders for Citrus Memorial hospital, and then negotiate a sale or lease with the winning bidder. Instead, a tumultuous three months ended in July when trustees fired Nemzoff after he refused to comply with a public records request for emails with bidders. The CCHB had already paid him $60,000 toward a $775,000 contract. Nemzoff sued in federal court. The Inverness resident who requested the records, Robert Schweickert Jr., sued the CCHB and Nemzoff in state court. Two weeks ago, Nemzoff and the CCHB reached a settlement. The CCHB received its records: more than 2,000 emails 4,000-plus pages in all on a compact disc. Nemzoff received $700,000. Chronicle fileJosh Nemzoff was hired by the Citrus County Hospital Board to solicit bidders for the sale or lease of Citrus Memorial hospital. He was fired three months later. Associated PressWASHINGTON Several million American workers will reduce their hours on the job or leave the workforce entirely because of incentives built into President Barack Obamas health care overhaul, the Congressional Budget Office said Tuesday. That would mean losses equal to 2.3 million full-time jobs by 2021, in large part because people would opt to keep their income low to stay eligible for federal health care subsidies or Medicaid, the agency said. It had estimated previously that the law would lead to 800,000 fewer jobs by that year. Republican lawmakers seized on the report as major new evidence of what they consider the failures of Obamacare, the huge overhaul of U.S. health care coverage that theyre trying to overturn and planning to use as a main argument against Democrats in Novembers midterm elections. Its the latest indication that the presidents health care law is destroying full-time jobs, said Republican Rep. John Kline of Minnesota, chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee. This fatally flawed health care scheme is wreaking havoc on working families nationwide, he said. But the White House said the possible reduction would be due to voluntary steps by workers rather than businesses cutting jobs people having the freedom to retire early or spend more time as stay-at-home parents because they no longer had to depend only on their employers for health insurance. See HEALTH/ Page A9 Health care law will mean fewer people on the job Trek promotes nature-based tourismPATFAHERTY Staff writerAbout 45 paddlers in kayaks and canoes will travel through Citrus County on the Withlacoochee River this month. They are taking part in the second annual The Wonderful Wild Withlacoochee trip organized by Paddle Florida Inc., a nonprofit organization supporting canoeing and kayaking in Florida. It also promotes the state as an international destination for naturebased tourism. In addition to exploring the river, the trip includes entertainment and environmental education presentations. The trip is identical to last year, said Bill Richards, executive director of the Gainesville-based organization, which stages about five paddle trips a year. About a quarter of the paddlers did it last year. This time around he is hoping for better weather, since last year paddlers experienced rain, cold and frost. Registration closed Monday for the roughly 60-mile trip, which takes place Feb. 16 to 21. It begins at Sumter Countys Marsh Bend Outlet Park on Lake Panasoffkee. The group will spend the night there and have a pre-launch briefing. From there, paddlers will head to the riverside campsite at Potts Preserve and take in an evening presentation by the Southwest Florida Water Paddles return to Withlacoochee River John KlineMinnesota representative said Obamacare is destroying full-time jobs.

The evening program will feature Karen Ahlers, with Florida Defenders of the Environment, which includes Withlacoochee River protection as one of its projects. After leaving the park the next day, the group will stop at Citrus Countys Goldendale Ramp before paddling on to camp near Inglis Dam on Lake Rousseau.

GRANTContinued from Page A1 Crime lab analyst arrested on drug chargesTALLAHASSEE Authorities said a former Florida crime lab analyst was arrested on charges that he stole and sold prescription pills seized as evidence in criminal cases. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement announced that Joseph Graves was arrested Tuesday. It comes a day after the chemist resigned from his job at a Pensacola lab that tests drug evidence. Investigators said Graves replaced painkillers he was testing as evidence with non-prescription pills. He is charge with then selling the painkillers. Graves began working for the department in 2005 and has handled about 2,600 cases, most of which are drug related. Evidence he handled came from 80 law enforcement agencies from 35 counties. Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey has said hundreds of drug cases might now be compromised.Lawyer says Timely Justice Act is unfairTALLAHASSEE A lawyer for death row inmates told Florida Supreme Court justices a law meant to quicken the process of carrying out death sentences unfairly limits the opportunity for condemned prisoners to introduce new evidence. The state said the act only mandates that the process is carried out in a reasonable amount of time. Attorney Martin McClain told The Associated Press on Monday the argument is whether or not the legislation interferes with the judicial process that ensures reliability of convictions and death sentences.Officials charge 22 in insurance fraud ringMIAMI Authorities say 22 people have been charged in a major home insurance fraud ring operating in South Florida. Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle and state Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater said Tuesday losses from the fraud are estimated at $7.6 million. The fraud usually involved staged fires or floods at homes owned by people who were recruited by the fraud ringleaders. Rundle said the organization staged at least 17 fake home damage incidents. The ring was allegedly led by a Miami public adjuster, who is licensed to represent insurance policyholders making claims. The adjuster purportedly took up to 30 percent of the claim paid by the insurer. State BRIEFS From wire reports

STATE& LOCAL Page A3WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE CHRISVANORMER Staff writerCuriosity can add unwanted overseas long-distance charges to your cellphone bill. If your phone rings only once and hangs up, dont call the caller ID number to find out who it was, warns the Better Business Bureau Serving West Florida, or you could become the victim of a new scam called ring and run. These people are doing mass call lines, like a robocall to thousands of phone numbers, explained Brian Oglesby, BBB director of business relations. Its set to call, ring once and hang up. What they are trying to do is entice that person to be curious and call back the caller ID number, which originates in the Caribbean. These phone numbers look like they could be USA numbers because they are 10-digit numbers. They have an area code of three digits. People think it may be somebody they know out of town and call back. Thats when the charges start to incur. Here is how it works, according to the BBB: Consumers receive calls on their mobile phones from an unknown caller who hangs up after one ring. When cellphone owner returns the call, they are billed $19.95 for the international call fee. They may hear music, then advertising while they are unknowingly connected to a callerpaid toll service or chat line located outside the country. At $9 per minute, these calls can add up quickly. The Caribbean area codes that appear on the caller ID often have been reported to be from the Dominican Republic (809), Jamaica (876), British Virgin Islands (284), Grenada (473) and Dominica (767). Lindsay Blair, Citrus County Sheriffs Office (CCSO) spokeswoman, said no one has yet reported this scam to the CCSO, but she has seen it mentioned on the Internet social media, and advised the public to be cautious. If you have a phone number that you dont recognize, dont call it back, Blair said. Certainly dont answer it. Let them leave a message. If the caller has not left a message, Blair said the caller would call again if it was a matter of importance. Oglesby said such scams dont get reported to law enforcement until after the victims notice unusual charges on the bill they get from their cell phone service provider. It seems like once the word gets out, everyone says: Oh, I received that call, Oglesby said. Currently, many victims of the ring-and-run scam are younger people, the millennials, whose cell phone habits differ from the older generations. They dont leave messages with their friends, Oglesby explained. If they dont answer the phone, theyll text them. They are more likely to call the number back. The practice of third parties placing unauthorized charges on wireless accounts is calledcramming.The BBB advises people to keep an eye on their cell phone bills. The earlier the fraud is documented, the better is the chance to have some or all of the charges removed. Watch for ring and run scam Unscrupulous criminals using new technique to ring up hefty phone bills NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS Inverness City Council began with a land transaction decision and ended with a discussion about the Friday, Feb. 7 meeting between county and city governments regarding the future of fire services for the city of Inverness. The land transaction is part of the citys Vision on the Lakes in the Dampier Street/Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue area and includes an old apartment complex, a parcel of landfront and a little white house that the supervisor of elections uses for storage. Weve been eyeing this for some time, said Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni. He added that the property is currently valued much higher than the purchase price, $187,500. As a caveat, the Housing Foundation for the Elderly, this property is in their holding and they will take the proceeds and reinvest to provide living conditions for people who are struggling to find suitable living conditions, he said. In other council business: The city council agreed to renew a property lease agreement between the city and Sen. Charles Dean for a tract of land on County Road 581 near Pleasant Grove Elementary School. DiGiovanni advised council members of upcoming plans to expand the Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) into the citys medical corridor around the hospital, as well as north of the city on U.S. 41 in the industrial area. The decisions made by this council will play strongly into the future, possibly for the next 20 to 30 years, DiGiovanni said. Concerning the future of fire services and the Feb. 7 meeting, council members and the city manager acknowledged that this has become a contentious subject. Councilwoman Jacquie Hepfer, voicing her frustration said, Weve been called to task for not being team players. ... and were being treated like an outside entity. At what point did 7,000 residents secede from the county and become our own island where we have to pay a la carte for every dadgum thing? She added, Theres a difference between cooperating and just rolling over. DiGiovanni said he looked forward to the meeting on Friday. I know the concerns youve voiced about what might happen in the future and thats something you will have to decide but you will get through this, he said. Dont fret over Friday, thats just a day. Think three, five years from now. Even if we dont get to that answer Friday, we can start working to that answer. Inverness council looks to future STEPHEN E.

By one exhaustive count, the outgoing Tonight show host made 4,607 jokes at the former presidents expense during his time on the program. The Center for Media and Public Affairs catalogued nearly 44,000 jokes Leno made about political figures and celebrities at Tonight through Jan. 24. Leno is leaving Tonight after Thursday. His first Clinton joke came on May 25, 1992, shortly after taking over from Johnny Carson and when Clinton was still a presidential candidate. Clinton says that hes troubled by the amount of sex on television, Leno said. He says that where hes from sex is a deeply personal thing between a candidate and his campaign volunteers. Leno jokes about powerful people and he jokes about scandals. Bill Clinton is both, said Robert Lichter, director of the Washington-area think tank and author of the upcoming book, Politics is a Joke: How TV Comedians are Remaking Political Life. How long has Leno been joking about Clinton? One popular topic was the politicians weight and penchant for fast food now hes a lean vegetarian. Not only is Clinton more than a thousand jokes ahead of the runner-up ( George W.Bush, 3,239 jokes), Lenos top 10 targets also include Hillary Clinton and MonicaLewinsky. Lenos concentration on politics is evident in the list of his top 10 targets. They include seven people who served as president or vice president or ran for the presidency. And just outside the top 10 are John McCain, Mitt Romney and John Kerry. Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian had a relatively low count of 37 jokes. Leno is an old reliable, Lichter said. Hes like an old shoe that fits and is comfortable. He was never trendy, he was never cutting-edge. But he was a master of the one-liner.Netflix drama House of Cards scores third seasonNEW YORK Netflix says its acclaimed drama House of Cards will get a third season. The online video provider had previously been cagey about the future of the series, which initially received a two-season order of 13 episodes apiece. It returns with its second season on Feb.14, when all 13 episodes will join the earlier 13 hours on the Netflix website. Netflix offered no details concerning production start or release date for the third seasons 13 episodes. House of Cards stars Kevin Spacey as a diabolical former U.S. senator now risen to vice president. The first season instantly made Netflix a force in the arena of original video content and snagged nine prime-time Emmy nominations. Robin Wright won a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Spaceys scheming wife. From wire reports Associated PressFormer President Bill Clinton speaks Dec. 9, 2013, at a CGI Clinton Global Initiative Latin America event in Rio de Janeiro. During Jay Lenos two-decade tenure as NBCs Tonight show host, the comic has cracked a total of 4,607 jokes at the expense of President Clinton.

Neither side will talk publicly about the settlement; neither is allowed to speak poorly of the other. Based on public records, earlier interviews and public meetings, here are the bullet points as to how it all came to be: April 15, 2013, the CCHB hired Nemzoff as its transaction consultant. Though the CCHB interviewed other applicants, they chose Nemzoff. The Nemzoff & Co. website includes aWall Street Journalstory with this lead sentence: For living proof that business success isnt always a popularity contest, consider Josh Nemzoff. May 27, a Chroniclestory reveals existence of a meeting earlier in the month in CCHB attorney Bill Grants office with Sen. Charlie Dean and representatives of one of the four bidders. In an email to CCHB trustees, Nemzoff chides Grant for allowing contact with the bidder. May 29, Grant apologizes for any misunderstanding from his role in the meeting with the hospital bidder. CCHB accepts his explanation and blames Nemzoff for releasing his email about the situation to the press. The CCHB approves a resolution that prohibits Nemzoff from speaking with the press on its behalf without prior approval. He also is not to answer public records requests from citizens but is to cooperate fully with the CCHB. July 9, Nemzoff appears before the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation with a proposal to end the stalemate with the CCHB. His proposals include that both groups hire lawyers with no connection to Citrus County to help settle the dispute. July 10, after facilitating the presentation from four hospital bidders, attempts by CCHB trustees Debbie Ressler and Krista Joseph to fire Nemzoff fail on a 2-2 vote. Both trustees are angry that Nemzoff pitched a settlement offer to the foundation without their knowledge and approval beforehand In that meeting, trustee Joseph says Nemzoff has a God complex. July 11, Grant says he receives a public records request from Schweickert for emails Nemzoff sent and received from bidders, and that Nemzoff sent and received from theCitrus County Chronicle. In the coming days, Grant and Nemzoff exchange terse emails. Grant demands the public records; Nemzoff says he doesnt have to comply. Nemzoffs attorney offers to provide Grant the emails for $12,000 the cost, he says, for researching Nemzoffs email data bank. Nemzoff tells trustees he has no plans to give up the emails. July 19, the CCHB votes 3-1 to fire Nemzoff because of the public records dispute. Nemzoff was on vacation and did not attend the meeting. July 31, Nemzoff attorney accuses CCHB of firing Nemzoff to avoid paying him the full fee after he had already done much of the work. CCHB denies the claim and blames Nemzoff for not providing requested email records. Aug. 14, Schweickert sues the CCHB and Nemzoff in state court. Florida First Amendment Foundation attorney Jon Kaney represents Schweickert. Aug. 19, Nemzoff sues CCHB in federal court, accusing the CCHB of violating his rights to appeal his firing. The lawsuit says Grant helped to concoct a public records request in the hopes of getting him fired. Grant denies the claim. Aug. 22, the CCHB hires Trey Crabb of Ziegler Healthcare Investment Banking of Nashville, Tenn., to replace Nemzoff. The CCHB will pay Ziegler $550,000, with nearly half released only after closing on the Citrus Memorial lease is complete. Jan. 22, the federal lawsuit is settled when Nemzoff agrees to release the records in exchange for $700,000. An attorney for Nemzoff provides Grant with a CD containing the emails. The CCHB sends a check to Nemzoff. The CCHBs insurance group says it will pay $325,000 toward the settlement. Jan. 31, a federal judge signs the final order dismissing the case. The state case still exists. However, Kaney said he believes the CCHB has now provided the records to Schweickert so the only issue is ensuring Kaney receives about $31,000 in attorneys fees that Grant said the CCHB will pay. Final tally: $700,000 for Nemzoff; about $108,000 to CCHB outside counsel Cliff Shepard (plus an undetermined amount for Shepards assistant to comb through the emails for possible exemptions from the public records law); $31,000 to Kaney. Minus $325,000 from the insurance company, that leaves a net loss to taxpayers of $514,000. Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.

Lynda Winkler, 74MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.Lynda Sue Winkler, 74, of Myrtle Beach, S.C., wife of Bill Winkler, passed away Jan. 31, 2014. We lost Sue after a lengthy battle with cancer. Sue was such a funloving person and will be missed by so many people, including her husband, Bill. Although Sue is gone, shell be remembered by her golfing partners, her card playing colleagues and many other folks she encountered through her many years in Ohio, Maryland, South Carolina and Florida. Although there were no children in her life, she cherished her nieces and their children. Sue came from a line of educational providers. Her mother Alberta Roland, brother Bill Roland, and two nieces were all teachers, not to mentionher father Bill, who announced sports events for the school. Several of these family members also attended Miami University in southern Ohio. Before college, Sue attended high school in Massillon, Ohio, which many people agree is the heart of football. As a matter of fact, her high school band was selected to march in the Rose Bowl parade back in 1954 out in Pasadena, Calif. Since Sue was then a majorette for the football team, she was in attendance for this grand affair. After her graduation from Miami University, she went on to achieve her masters equivalency in education and teach primary and secondary school in both northern Ohio and Maryland. While in Ohio, she met her husband Bill and married about a year later. They both pulled up stakes and moved to Maryland for the next 25 years or so, before retiring and moving to South Carolina and the Myrtle Beach area. They enjoyed Myrtle Beach before deciding to build another home in Florida. They spent their time commuting back and forth between their two homes, and when free time was available, they went on cruises some 20-plus ocean ventures to the Caribbean, as well as Alaska and a European river cruise. All in all, a very rewarding life and a fulfilling career. You might say a satisfying bucket list. A memorial service will be at Goldfinch Funeral Home Conway Chapel on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014, with Pastor Johnathan D. Harris officiating. Please sign the guestbook at www.goldfinch funeralhome.com.

Third-quarter profits surged 77 percent at the luxury retailer, which has been aggressively promoting its brand. The retailer had its first quarterly increase in comparable-store sales in more than two years during the holiday shopping season.

DEATHSContinued from Page A6 Lynda Winkler Bargain-hunting drives slight gains Associated PressInvestors went hunting for bargains a day after U.S. stocks racked up the biggest losses in more than seven months. The buying helped lift major stock indexes out of the red on Tuesday. Prices of U.S. government bonds fell. The mini-rebound seemed fragile at times, with the market giving up some of its earlier gains by late afternoon. Markets were coming off a 326-point drop in the Dow Jones industrial average on Monday, and the blue-chip indexs worst January performance in five years prompted by disappointing news about U.S. manufacturing. All told, the Dow rose 72.44 points, or 0.5 percent, to close at 15,445.24 Tuesday. The Standard & Poors 500 index climbed 13.31 points, or 0.8 percent, to 1,755.20. The Nasdaq composite gained 34.56 points, or 0.9 percent, to 4,031.52. Even with Tuesdays gains, the Dow is down 6.8 percent this year, and the S&P 500 index is off 5 percent

OPINION Page A8WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2014 Mistreating squirrelsIts impossible for me to understand why so many get upset and angry because squirrels eat seeds put out for birds. Common sense, which seems nonexistent, makes it obvious that feeders are for feeding and, surprise! Squirrels eat! If these little creatures arent welcome, for whatever reason, there is a simple solution. Stop feeding. Its unreasonable to put squirrel food in an outdoor feeder and exclude any particular critter. How aggravating hungry squirrels, in search of food, dare trespass onto bird only territory. Whats wrong with them? Cant they read the Squirrels: Keep Out signs? Dont they know that humans are angrily watching and, with raised blood-pressure, are thinking up ways to discourage these unwelcome guests from doing whats natural? These innocent squirrels are part of nature and they belong everywhere humans have chosen to invade. Constant turmoil and resentment toward creatures attracted by food deliberately set out to entice them shows little intelligence. Why not try enjoying the squirrels participation in raiding feed boxes as they sit and chomp tidbits or watching their crazy acrobatics and possessive chases with competitors with an open mind and kind heart? Dreaming up ridiculous and cruel methods to be rid of squirrels as depicted in Mr. Mulligans recent, not funny squirrel-related article; Sound Off complainers; Wm. Parkers shock lesson (Jan. 13), and all others who express constant hatred and frustration over what they, themselves, cause, is wrong. I suggest putting more food out and enjoying all partakers. Or, stop feeding altogether. Perhaps moving to the prairie or desert, where squirrels are too smart to live, would make the squirrel-haters happier. Or, best of all, relax and appreciate Gods creatures for what they are and stop trying to harm or be rid of them.Joanie Welch InvernessKeep it green and cleanMy wife and I moved to Citrus County seven years ago from New Jersey. When we first arrived, we were amazed by the beauty and cleanliness of the area. There didn't seem to be one piece of trash on the side of the road. Fast forward seven years and it saddens me how things have changed. I cycle throughout the county and everywhere I go I see litter. Bottles, cans, household trash strewn across the sides of our roads. Why is it that people litter? Are they ignorant to the fact that the trash does not disappear? Are they too lazy to find a garbage can to drop it in? I just wish these people would stop using our beautiful county as there dumping ground. Lets keep Citrus green and clean.Christopher Lilienthal Beverly Hills Dear Tom Perkins: Im writing to apologize. I do this on behalf of the 99 percent of us who are not multimillionaires. You, of course, are, having made a pile as a venture capitalist and cofounder of the firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. I admit, Id have thought a guy like you had little to complain about. But that was before you wrote that tearjerking Jan. 24 letter to The Wall Street Journalrevealing the pain, the oppression, the abject sense of vulnerability and fear that go with having a net worth equal to the GNP of some developing nations. In your letter, you decried the rising tide of hatred youve experienced at the hands of progressives waging war against your people. Your examples were heart-rending. You mentioned popular anger over rising real-estate prices. And outraged public reaction to dedicated buses ferrying tech workers to their San Francisco-area jobs. And the people who have called your ex-wife, novelist Danielle Steel, a snob. Oh, the humanity. There are, you said, parallels to Nazi Germany and its treatment of another oppressed minority, the Jews. This is a very dangerous drift in our American thinking, you warned. Kristallnacht was unthinkable in 1930; is its descendant progressive radicalism unthinkable now? Youre right. How could we have missed it? Calling Danielle Steel a snob is exactly like that turning point on the road to Holocaust when antiJewish riots broke out across Germany, 7,500 Jewish homes and businesses were vandalized, 30,000 Jewish men were sent to concentration camps, 91 Jews were killed and the Nazis, blaming the Jews themselves for the carnage, fined them about $400 million in 1938 U.S. dollars. Youve been criticized for what you wrote, but we both know the only thing wrong with it is, you didnt go far enough. You didnt mention how one day the rich may be forced to stitch yellow dollar signs to their clothing or have their net worth tattooed on their forearms. Being forced to pay taxes for the upkeep of schools your children wouldnt be caught dead attending? Thats exactly like slavery. Zoning laws that limit you to one measly helipad on your very own land? No difference between that and the Trail of Tears. Where will it end? Will they make you fly commercial? Buy off the rack? Golf on a public course? Might as well hitch up the boxcars and pack you in. I confess to having been blind to the suffering of the AffluentAmerican community. But youve opened my eyes. How awful it must be, forced to live in segregated neighborhoods like Brentwood and Star Island in constant fear of metaphorical beatings and rhetorical lynching if you dare get out of your place and whine about the travails of your life of vulgar excess. Well, sir, thanks to great Affluent-American leaders like you, I have a dream that one day your children will not be judged by the content of their offshore accounts. You are as human as anyone else. Your manservant puts your pants on one leg at a time just like the rest of us. So I apologize to you on behalf of the 40-year-old man with a college degree struggling to raise his son on a McSalary, the little girl trying to concentrate on algebra while her stomach growls with missed-meal cramps, the Walmart employees collecting food for coworkers, the homeless family praying the social worker will find them shelter for the night as temperature and snow fall steadily. You know, until I read your letter, I thought they were the ones most deserving of my empathy and concern, these victims of wealth inequality, a tilted playing field and the sheer greed of rapacious money pigs. But youve set me straight, and I want you to know Im with you all the way. I mean, now that I know who the real victims are.Leonard Pitts is a columnist for The Miami Herald, 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132. Readers may contact him via e-mail at lpitts@ miamiherald.com.

Alex Stubenbort, a language arts teacher at Lecanto Middle School, and Colleen Fuller, paraprofessional from Central Ridge Elementary School, who were honored as top teacher and school-related employee, love their jobs, as do many others within the district working tirelessly each day to give Citrus County children the best possible education. The results of their efforts, and countless other staff members and teachers, are evident as year after year Citrus Countys School District is awarded High-Performing school district status. Educators today face many more obstacles than teachers of the past. Each year (and occasionally mid-year) the standards, goals and mandates they are instructed to teach and maintain are changed. Imagine the energy it takes to keep up with those changes and remain enthused in the classroom. Often the work educators do goes unnoticed. Teachers work around the clock, teaching by day, writing lesson plans and grading papers by night. They do this while adhering to strict standards passed down by well-meaning legislators who really have little clue to what really takes place in the classroom. Couple those expectations with how no child can be left behind and every student must meet the same criteria despite vast differences in their socio-economic structure or parental involvement. Educating Citrus Countys children is no easy task, yet we are fortunate to have quality people like Alex Stubenbort and Colleen Fuller working on their behalf.

The agency also reduced its estimate of the number of uninsured people who will get coverage through the health care law. The budget experts now say more than 1 million fewer people than had been expected will gain coverage this year, partly because of the website problems that prevented people from signing up last fall. However, it wasnt all bad news for the Obama administration. The CBOs wide-ranging report predicted that the federal budget deficit will fall to $514 billion this year, down from last years $680 billion and the lowest by far since Obama took office five years ago. The new estimates also say that the health care law will, in the short run, benefit the economy by boosting demand for goods and services because the lower-income people it helps will have more purchasing power. The report noted that the 2014 premiums that people pay for exchange coverage are coming in about 15 percent lower than projected, and the health care law, on balance, still is expected to reduce the federal deficit. However, the budget experts see the long-term federal deficit picture worsening by about $100 billion a year through the end of the decade because of slower growth in the economy than they had previously predicted. As for health care signups, the website woes have largely been cleared up, but the nonpartisan congressional analysts estimated that about 1 million fewer people will enroll through the new insurance exchanges than had been expected this year, for a total of 6 million. Enrollment is predicted to pick up, topping 20 million in 2016. The exchanges, or online marketplaces, offer subsidized private coverage and cater mainly to middle-class people who dont have health care on the job. The Congressional Budget Office also revised its Medicaid enrollment projection downward by about 1 million, for a new total of 8 million signups in 2014. About half the states have accepted the health laws Medicaid expansion. What about those people whose decisions about work might be affected by the new law? Lower-wage workers are more likely to reduce their hours or quit their jobs because of Obamacare incentives, the report said. Although some employers will choose not to hire additional workers, or will reduce hours, the budget office said that does not appear to be the main factor. The estimated reduction stems almost entirely from a net decline in the amount of labor that workers choose to supply, rather than from a net drop in businesses demand for labor, the report said. The health care analysis is layered with complexity. The job losses are measured in fulltime-equivalent workers, which means more people are actually affected than, say, the 2 million full-time-equivalent jobs lost in 2017. It could take several part-time workers or people deciding to reduce their hours to produce the wage loss of one full-time equivalent. The report also contains an important caveat, that the estimate of job losses is subject to substantial uncertainty and could be larger or smaller than predicted. There now are more than 130 million jobs in the economy. Meanwhile, the broad federal deficit projection shows another yearly improvement. Obama inherited an economy in crisis and the first deficits ever to exceed $1 trillion. The 2009 total, swelled by the costs of the Wall Street bailout, hit a record $1.4 trillion, while the deficits of 2010 and 2011 each registered $1.3 trillion.

Associated PressBEIRUT Men pull a girl from the rubble and haul her onto a dirty sheet of plastic, while another child, coated in white dust save for a red streak of blood from his nose, lies with his crushed leg dangling off a gurney the grisly aftermath from the dropping of a crude barrel bomb by Syrian forces on the city of Aleppo. The bombing one of at least seven such attacks in Aleppo on Tuesday struck a mosque that was being used as a school, killing at least 11 people, activists said. A video supplied by activists contained scenes of the carnage. It was the latest example of the heightened use of barrel bombs, devices packed with fuel, explosives and scrap metal that are hurled from helicopters, often indiscriminately. Since Thursday, around 80 people have been killed by barrel bombs used by Syrian President Bashar Assads forces to try to dislodge rebels from Aleppo, according to figures provided by the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which relies on a network of activists on the ground. The video uploaded from the rebel-held Masaken Hanano district showed the aftermath of the explosion at or near the Uthman Bin Affan mosque, where adults were teaching children the Quran, said activist Hassoun Abu Faisal of the Aleppo Media Center. The video, excerpts of which are at http://apne.ws/1c0t9yt was consistent with what reporting by The Associated Press found. A cameraman films from inside a vehicle as it speeds toward a place where dust is drifting into a clear blue sky. The camera swivels to men and boys running around a building that has been torn in half by an explosion. Are there martyrs? the narrator asks. His camera focuses on a lump of red flesh in a vehicle. It is the beginning of a grim litany of death, as seen from the jerking camera. A child, his legs missing, lies on the ground, partially covered by a blanket. Are there anybodys children here? cries one man. Bashar, you lowlife! cries another, referring to the Syrian ruler, raising his hands angrily to the sky. Another man shakes a blackened body inside a vehicle. A man carries a lifeless boy, lifting him partly by his clothes, and leaves him on the sidewalk near two other mangled corpses. An older man with a bloodied face stumbles toward the child, weeping, Oh, God, your grace, oh, God. The cameraman also captures scenes of the boy with the crushed leg and the girl pulled from the ruins. The Observatory said at least five of the dead in Masaken Hanano were children. The use of barrel bombs across Syria has been widely condemned by human rights groups because of the weapons indiscriminate nature. They have been a key part of a government strategy to wrest back parts of Aleppo seized by rebels in mid-2012.

Cities have already gone through most of their salt well ahead of the time they traditionally really need it when the coldest part of winter gives way to temperatures just warm enough to turn snow into freezing rain and sleet and roads into ribbons of ice.Navy probing alleged cheating WASHINGTON The Navy is investigating 30 or more senior sailors in connection with alleged cheating on written tests designed to qualify them as instructors at a school that trains younger sailors to operate naval nuclear power reactors, officials said Tuesday.

Advocates make bid for wage hikeWASHINGTON More than a dozen advocacy groups are urging President Barack Obama to include mentally disabled workers in his call to raise the federal minimum wage for employees of government contractors. The groups, including the National Organization on Disability and the National Down Syndrome Congress, said Tuesday they are concerned that Obamas plan for an executive order raising wages to $10.10 an hour wont cover many disabled people who now earn less than the current federal minimum of $7.25 an hour. Thousands of disabled workers are employed by government contractors under a federal program that allows companies to pay a subminimum wage to those with intellectual or developmental disabilities.

News reports said the crash occurred Tuesday near the town of Belaniy, 170 miles east of Kiev. The Interfax news agency cited a statement from the regional prosecutors office as saying the driver of the small bus apparently ignored a lighted signal at the railroad crossing. Interfax said five injured bus passengers were hospitalized. The bus driver reportedly was unhurt.Libya: All chem weapons goneTRIPOLI, Libya Libyas Foreign Ministry said Tuesday the countrys caches of chemical weapons, including bombs and artillery shells filled with mustard gas, have been completely destroyed.

Scottish Health Secretary Alex Neil called the bills approval one of the great historic days of the parliament. But some religious leaders criticized it as an assault on tradition. The bill was passed Tuesday by 105 votes to 18. Under the bill, religious bodies in Scotland that wish to perform gay marriages can opt in to do so. Groups opposed to same-sex marriage cannot be forced to solemnize such unions. Legislation to allow gay marriage in England and Wales was passed in July last year. The change does not apply to Northern Ireland. World BRIEFS From wire reports Facebook turns 10 Associated PressNEW YORK It has been 10 years since a Harvard sophomore named Mark Zuckerberg created a website called Thefacebook.com to let his classmates find their friends online. They did. And in the decade since, so have more than a billion people, not just American college students but also farmers in India, activists in Egypt and pop stars in South Korea. Facebook has transformed how much of the world communicates. Zuckerbergs insistence that people use real identities, not quirky screen names, helped blur, if not erase entirely, the divide between our online and offline worlds. Long-lost friends are no longer lost. They are on Facebook. From its roots as a website with no ads, no business plan and a hacker ethic, Facebook has grown into a company worth $150billion, with 6,337 employees and sprawling headquarters in the heart of Silicon Valley. Born in the age of desktop computers, three years before the iPhones debut, Facebook is now mainly accessed on mobile devices. Many of these mobile users never had a PC. People often ask if I always knew that Facebook would become what it is today. No way, Zuckerberg wrote where else on his Facebook page Tuesday. I remember getting pizza with my friends one night in college shortly after opening Facebook. I told them I was excited to help connect our school community, but one day someone needed to connect the whole world. Facebook has had plenty of stumbles along the way, from privacy concerns to user protests when Facebook introduced new features, not to mention a rocky public stock debut in 2012. Even its origin was the subject of a lawsuit and a Hollywood movie. Changes sought for endangered species act Associated PressBILLINGS, Mont. Republicans in Congress on Tuesday called for an overhaul to the Endangered Species Act to curtail environmentalists lawsuits and give more power to states, but experts say broad changes to one of the nations cornerstone environmental laws are unlikely given the pervasive partisan divide in Washington, D.C. A group of 13 GOP lawmakers representing states across the U.S. released a report proposing targeted reforms for the 40-year-old federal law, which protects imperiled plants and animals. Proponents credit the law with staving off extinction for hundreds of species from the bald eagle and American alligator to the gray whale. But critics contend the law has been abused by environmental groups seeking to restrict development in the name of species protection. Led by Rep. Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming and Rep. Doc Hastings of Washington state, who chairs the House Natural Resources Committee, the Republicans want to amend the law to limit litigation from wildlife advocates that has resulted in protections for some species. And they want to give states more authority over imperiled species that fall within their borders. Also among the recommendations are increased scientific transparency, more accurate economic impact studies and safeguards for private landowners. Signed into law by President Richard Nixon in December 1973, the act has resulted in additional protections for more than 1,500 plants, insects, mammals, birds, reptiles and other creatures, according to the Fish and Wildlife Service.

DAVIDPIEKLIK CorrespondentINVERNESS Minutes after its season-ending 7-1 playoff loss Tuesday, the Citrus Hurricanes boys soccer team gathered a final time before its fans, singing the Alma Mater like champions. History will have to wait after the Hurricanes (19-4-1) lost at home to the Sunlake Seahawks (29-1-1) in the Class 3A regional semifinals. The Canes were trying to advance past the round for the first time in pursuit of the schools first-ever state tournament championship. With players like sophomore goalkeeper Dakota Gruzdas giving everything they had to try to pull off a win against a stout Seahawks team, fans stayed to the end to give the Canes a standing ovation for a season that included a District 3A-7 title last month. Its not every year you get to win 19 games, you get to make it to the semifinals in the regionals, Gruzdas said. Its not every game you get to play a team like Sunlake. That was a great experience, especially for all of our younger players. It was unfortunate it had to happen tonight with the way things went, but we had an excellent season. You cant be unhappy with what we did this year. The Canes played even with the Seahawks the entire first half, a frame highlighted by Josh Marsdens penalty kick goal, and Gruzdas smothering a Seahawks penalty kick attempt in the last minute of stoppage time. The teams entered the half tied 1-1 and appeared to be headed to an exciting finish. Then Sunlakes Austin Goble scored in the 46th minute on a corner kick from Cobi Shermo, and a barrage of shots ensued. Gruzdas made big save after big save and those he couldnt get to were cleared by defenders Golf, tennis/B2 Baseball/ B3 Scoreboard/B3 TV, lottery/B3 NBA, NHL/ B4 College basketball/ B4 No. 3 Florida tries to stay perfect in SEC play at home against Missouri./ B4 SPORTSSection BWEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Second half unkind to Hurricanes soccer Tied at halftime, Citrus boys cut down by Sunlake in regional semis MATT PFIFFNER /ChronicleCrystal River senior guard Hunter Roessler tries to drive past Dunnellon guard Desmond Frazier during the first half of a District 5A-6 semifinal boys basketball tournament game Tuesday night at Crystal River High School. The fourth-seeded Pirates saw their season come to an end with a 63-36 loss to No. 1 seed Dunnellon. Citrus staves off Lecanto rally to set meeting with Dunnellon for District 5A-6 championship MATT PFIFFNER /ChronicleCitrus senior forward Ben Janicki scores on a left-handed layup against the defense of Lecanto senior Ronnie Crowe in the first half of a District 5A-6 boys basketball tournament semfinal game at Crystal River High School. The second-seeded Hurricanes withstood a furious rally from the third-seeded Panthers for a 64-62 victory. STEVEMCGUNNIGLE CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER The second semifinal matchup of the District 5A-6 boys basketball tournamentdid not have the flair for dramatics that the opener did, and predictably so, as tournament host Crystal River fell to top seed Dunnellon 63-36 on Tuesday night. It was the third time this year that the fourth-seeded Pirates trailed by at least30 points against the Tigers, who opened up with an 11-1 lead that was never threatened. Dunnellon faces No. 2 Citrus who defeated Lecanto 64-62 in the first semifinal at Crystal River on Friday night in the District 5A-6 championship game. The Tigers and Hurricanes split a pair of regularseason meetings, with each squad winning at home. Crystal River (4-17 overall) scored its first points from the field on an offensive putback by John Parry with nine seconds left in the first quarter to make it 11-3, but a 21-point second quarter by Dunnellon (189), coupled with continued offensive struggles by the Pirates allowed the ,Tigers to put it in cruise control for the duration. Willie Robinson fueled an 8-2 Dunnellon run to start the second, extending the early edge to 19-5. Robinson hit a running onehanded floater in the lane, then sent a pretty no-look pass to Will Thomas for a short bank shot from just outside the key. Robinson then found Andre Hairston for a scooping onehanded layup, and after Crystal Rivers John Hess scored inside, Robinson again found a teammate, this time Darion Baker, under the hoop for the 14-point lead. Dunnellon extended it to a 32-14 margin going into halftime. Afterward, Tigers head coach Travis Licht had praise for Robinson (six points, 10 assists, six rebounds). He did a really great job seeing the floor tonight, Licht said. When he plays like that, he makes everyone else better. The Pirates were more competitive to start the second half, losing the third quarter by just three points, but it was too little too late, as early poor shooting and an inability to match Dunnellons size and speed were too much to overcome. As Crystal River head coach Steve Feldman explained, I think we only shot 23 percent in the first half, our best outside shooters couldnt hit anything, and youre not going to beat anybody at 23 percent shooting. The Pirates went 3 for 21 from threepoint range, a necessary part of their game. We have to try to be an inside-out team, and the three, you live and die by it, Feldman said. Their quickness bothered us, their transition game bothered us, and we dont have the quickness and we dont have the size. On the other side, Licht was pleased with Dunnellons defensive efforts, which was previously a concern. I thought we defended well, and that basically carried us through the whole game, he said. Our defense and our rebounding carried us. Hairston had a game-high 14 points and six rebounds, while Thomas had 12 points and eight boards for Dunnellon. Hess led the Pirates with 11 points and seven rebounds, while freshman Tyler Pollard chipped in seven points and four rebounds. District 5A-6 boys basketball championship game Who: No. 1 Dunnellon (18-9) vs. No. 2 Citrus (24-2) Whats at stake: The winner earns a first-round home game in the Class 5A regional quarterfinals, while the loser travels to the District 5A-5 winner. When: 7 p.m. Friday night. Where: Crystal River High School. SEANARNOLD CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER For a county hoops rivalry known for its closely-fought, back-andforth contests, Tuesdays District 5A-6 boys semifinal between Citrus and Lecanto didnt disappoint. Despite entering the game with 10 fewer wins and an 0-2 mark against the Hurricanes, the Panthers climbed back from a 53-41 fourthquarter deficit to give itself a chance for a go-ahead 3 in the waning seconds. But in a game full of well-contested shots, it was a blocked shot by junior Desmond Franklin that helped his Canes ultimately secure a 64-62 victory in the Crystal River High School gym. The win gives Citrus (24-2) back-to-back playoff berths for the first time since 2002 and 2003, and sets up the Hurricanes with a district-title tilt against Dunnellon on Friday. Junior Darius Sawyer, back from his lateseason injury, had a block, a steal, four rebounds and 10 of his team-high 20 points in the fourth quarter in helping lead his Panthers (13-11) back from the brink. With five seconds to play, Franklin blocked a 3-point attempt by senior Thomas Vilardi in the right corner, only to see the deflected ball retrieved under the basket by LHS senior Ronnie Crowe (14 points). But Crowes would-be gametying layup was whistled off, as he was ruled out-of-bounds on the play, effectively ending the Panthers chances with a second remaining. Our first two shots of the fourth quarter rimmed out, and Lecanto was scoring during that time, CHS head coach Tom Densmore said of Lecantos comeback. If wed have got some stops, it wouldnt have been so bad for us. Our shots werent falling for us at that point. We went back to man-toman defense there at the end to make sure we had everybody covered up out there, because I expected (Lecanto) to go for the 3, he added. Dez (Franklin) got every bit of elevation he could get on that ball. With pressure looming for both sides, the teams combined to go 16 for 18 at the foul line in the final quarter. Basketball is a game of runs, LHS head coach Jeff Anderson said, and we had ours and just came up a little short. I feel like our boys executed our game plan just the way we wanted it. Weve talked all year about stringing together three (good) possessions. And if we can do that, then no lead is insurmountable. We were focused and we were able to slow the game down and get (Citrus) athletes out of position. Dez got every bit of elevation he could get on that ball.Tom DensmoreCitrus boys basketball coach said of Desmond Franklins game-sealing block. See CITRUS/ Page B3 See CANES/ Page B3

Look for USTA in spring Eric van den HoogenON TENNIS Making the cut For business titans, Pebble is pressure Associated PressPEBBLE BEACH, Calif. For Ryan Palmer, with three PGA Tour wins and over $14 million in career earnings, it seemed like any other day at the office after he finished his third round at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. For Brian Roberts, the CEO of Comcast with a net worth estimated at $1 billion, it was so much more than that. He had a chance to make the cut. Were sitting in the Tap Room at Pebble Beach and heres Brian Roberts, basically the owner of Comcast worth I dont know how much, Palmer recalled. And Ive never seen a guy more nervous. He was going back and forth and kept saying, Where do we stand? He was nervous about making the cut. It was cool to see a guy like that who was so excited, really anxious to make the cut. Pebble Beach is celebrated for so many reasons. Its played on one of the worlds most picturesque courses on the first weekend after the Super Bowl, offering magnificent views of the Monterey Peninsula to golf fans still digging out from the snow. The amateur field is noted for a shrinking list of actors and entertainers and a growing list of athletes. Getting the least amount of recognition are the corporate executives, many of them in charge of Fortune 500 companies. Theyre the show well, we are on Sunday, Geoff Ogilvy said. Theyre equally accomplished in their fields as we are in ours. But they do much more important stuff. We just entertain. They add to the economy. Theyre very successful. And theyre very much out of their element at Pebble. Bill Gross is the cofounder of Pacific Investment Management, the largest bond fund in the world which, according to Forbes, has $2 trillion under its management. There wouldnt seem to be a lot that could get him nervous. Except maybe playing in the final round with Tiger Woods. We were both under the impression that our team had missed the cut by a shot, so Bill went to the airport, said Kevin Sutherland, his partner for the better part of a decade. Hes talking to a friend who said, Where did you guys finish? and Bill told him we were 22under, or whatever we were, and missed by one. The guy says, No, I think that made the cut. If I were you Id check. He comes back from the airport, and the next day were playing with Tiger, Sutherland said. He was noticeably jittery, almost shaking. I found that odd, that you deal with billions of dollars but youre nervous playing with Tiger. This is not the boardroom or a playoff game or a concert before 80,000 fans. These amateurs are playing golf. For one week, they are living the life of a PGA Tour player. Its a different stage. Its a blast. And it can be a little overwhelming at times. Its their Masters, Brad Faxon said. Palmer had a better understanding a few years ago when the tour asked him and Jason Bohn to play with a couple of VIPs. One was Roberts, whose company owns Golf Channel and NBC. Associated PressThe AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament in Pebble Beach, Calif., is played on one of the worlds most picturesque courses on the first weekend after the Super Bowl, offering magnificent views of the Monterey Peninsula to golf fans still digging out from the snow.

I just tried to keep pace and keep taking it inside, Janicki said. It feels great. Were one game closer to a district championship. We just need to follow it up. We did a good job of getting him the ball, Densmore said of Janicki, and he had to shoot a helluva percentage to bail us out. We havent shot 3s well here (at Crystal River), so we had to go into Ben and Sam (Franklin). After a 3 by CHS sophomore Zach Saxer in the opening seconds, Lecanto scored the ensuing nine points of the game in building to a 9-3 advantage. With three Canes junior Sam Franklin, senior Devin Pryor and Janicki combining for 29 points in the first half, Citrus bounced back from the early deficit to claim a seven-point lead on two occasions late in the second quarter. Sam Franklin and Pryor each scored 16 points in the game. A sensational last-second dunk by the left-handed Sawyer, who penetrated the lane and launched himself high above the rim for a fierce throwdown, narrowed it to a 34-31 Citrus edge heading into the break. Kaine McColley, a Panther freshman guard who played beyond his years in notching 10 of his 16 points in the second half, kicked off the third quarter with a 3. But Sam Franklin, Janicki and Pryor dominated the remainder of the period to pull Citrus ahead. Adding to the Canes successful third, Desmond Franklin matched Sawyers earlier highlight with a baseline slam off a long assist from Pryor. I cant speak for our players, said Densmore, who said he was impressed with Lecantos game plan and attacking style, but I sure didnt take Lecanto lightly. Its not like we blew them out twice. Had we lost this game, people wouldve considered our record 0-1 this year the 23-2 wouldve been out the window. Im really proud of this group. They had to gut it out tonight. Were glad that things over, Densmore said. Fridays championship game is 7 p.m. in the Crystal River gym. Ryan Dolan, Jake Thatcher and Sean Flaherty. However, the Seahawks backline and midfield playing the long ball all night kept lobbing passes toward the Citrus goal to set up shots. Numerous Seahawks got open looks in front, and as the Canes started to look fatigued from constant pressure, goals started adding up. Shermo finished with three goals and an assist. Remi Pimm who entered the game with 59 goals added to the tally with a first-half header past Gruzdas. We didnt move off the ball as fast as we should, no transitioning, no marking, no goalside marking. We should have pressured every single ball because it could be our last game, Marsden said. Head coach Steve Ekeli added, We not for one second tonight played our style of soccer. Ekeli and his returning players are left with looking ahead to next season. Gruzdas expects the team to have a similar season with upcoming junior varsity talent and a core group of returning players. After coaching one of the schools most competitive and talented teams to the playoffs, Ekeli predicted, I think our program will be back in the thick of things.

CANESContinued from Page B1 Braves reach deals with Freeman, Heyward Associated PressATLANTA The Atlanta Braves agreed to an eight-year contract with first baseman Freddie Freeman that is worth about $125 million on Tuesday. The deal was confirmed by the team on Tuesday night. Earlier in the day, outfielder Jason Heyward and the Braves agreed to a $13.3 million, twoyear contract. Heyward and Freeman had filed for salary arbitration last month. The 24-year-old Freeman was an All-Star last year when he hit .319 with 23 homers and 109 RBIs. He matched his career high in home runs and set highs in batting average and RBIs while finishing fifth in NL MVP voting. He has topped 20 home runs in three straight seasons. Freddie has established himself as one of the best young talents in the game, Braves general manager Frank Wren said. We are excited to sign one of our own homegrown players to a contract that will keep him in a Braves uniform for the next eight seasons. Closer Craig Kimbrel is the Braves only player left in arbitration. Heyward, also 24, and Freeman are key members of the Braves core of young stars. Kimbrel, shortstop Andrelton Simmons, outfielder Justin Upton and starting pitchers Julio Teheran and Mike Minor are 26 or younger. Evan Gattis, 27, is replacing Brian McCann as the starting catcher. Heyward was happy to avoid arbitration. In my head it basically says to me, lets go play some baseball, he said. Heyward is coming off an injuryfilled season, and Wren said the relative lack of playing time complicated the arbitration process and helped make the two-year contract possible. Heyward hit .254 with 14 homers and 38 RBIs in a career-low 104 games during his fourth season with the Braves. He had an appendectomy on April 22 and broke his jaw on Aug. 21 when he was hit by a pitch from New York Mets lefthander Jon Niese. Last year was such a tough year physically, through no fault of his own, with the appendectomy and getting hit in the face, Wren said. So it also made it tough for both sides in an arbitration situation because its hard to pin a number when youre comparing to players who played a lot more. Heyward said he has moved past his injuries. Physically, I feel great, being 24 years old and being blessed with some genetics to go along with that, he said. Im growing up still in this game and Im looking forward to what my body is going to allow me to do going forward. Heywards deal calls for a $1 million signing bonus, payable in equal installments on May 1 and July 1, and salaries of $4.5 million this year and $7.8 million in 2015. Freddie Freeman

Amric Fields had 16 points and eight rebounds to lead TCU (9-12, 0-9), the only Big 12 team without a conference win.Ohio State 76, No. 17 Iowa 69IOWA CITY, Iowa Aaron Craft had 17 points with six assists and six steals to help Ohio State upset 17th-ranked Iowa 76-69 for its third win in four games.

That sealed back-to-back road wins for the surging Buckeyes, who beat Wisconsin 59-58 on Saturday. Mike Gesell had 16 points for lead Iowa (17-6, 6-4), which shot just 3 of 20 from 3-point range and lost its second straight at home.

MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleLecanto Middle School English/language arts teacher Alex Stubenbort work with his class Monday morning as they read a fictional story aloud. After the reading was completed, the class answered comprehension questions about the story. ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerAlexander Stubenbort is still in disbelief.With as many great educators that were present, I couldnt believe that my name was called, said Stubenbort, a language arts teacher at Lecanto Middle School. I dont remember much of that moment, but now that its on YouTube, its hard not to. On Jan. 23, Stubenbort was named the Citrus County School Districts 2015 Teacher of the Year at the annual Galaxy of the Stars event, beating out 47 other nominees. In that moment I was just feeling very appreciative and very humble, Stubenbort said. I am humbled by the entire experience, but was initially lost for words. The reaction at the podium was sincere. I really didnt know what to say. Stubenbort graduated from Westminster College in Pennsylvania and was unable to find employment with his bachelors degree in philosophy.

No one was hiring philosophers, so I moved down to Florida and worked at a juvenile justice facility, Eckerd Youth Alternatives, he said. I was a residential counselor living in the woods with 12 kids in a tent for five days a week. They eventually offered me a teaching position. I went and got my teaching certification. Within a year and a half of teaching at Eckerd Youth Alternatives, an opening became available at Lecanto Middle School. Now, three and a half years later, he is still incorporating his knowledge and experience from the juvenile justice facility into his own philosophy. I see too often educators who think that a child may be a lost cause, Stubenbort said. I think my way of thinking is a result of my juvenile justice experience. Every kid is capable of learning when they walk into my classroom. If that spark isnt lit, then there is something that I can find through time that can light that spark. I really do believe in their capabilities and think that there is something that can hook every kid into learning. It is just a matter of giving them that expectation and that chance. And thats exactly what earned him the title of Teacher of the Year. Stubenbort teaches seventhand eighth-grade reading and writing, as well as coaching girls basketball and being an assistant football coach. Teaching brings me joy and it gives me the opportunity to inspire the lives of tomorrows leaders, workers and America, he said. I know that sounds cheesy and a lot of teachers give that answer, but I genuinely love watching their minds being shaped in front of me and watching them figure out where they stand on issues. They are becoming young adults right in front of my eyes, intellectually. It is incredible to witness. But he knows hes not alone that educating a child requires a partnership between teacher and parent. Be proactive, Stubenbort said. In too many families, parents will take a back seat to education. They also dont want to bother the teacher. We love communicating with parents. We love when parents come in and want to talk about what is best for their child. If that line of communication is open and youre willing to spend a few extra minutes a week checking in with the teacher on your child, it has huge results in the classroom. Its not even comparable between students who have parents with a proactive stance than those whose parents are absent. Just like his relationship with parents, Stubenbort thanks his colleagues for their inspiration on his road to Teacher of the Year. I am nothing but a collective part of a whole, and all of the other teachers have formed me so much. They have freely given me knowledge since I walked into this building, he said. Stubenbort is working on his masters degree in education leadership in hopes of one day leading a school in an administrative position. However, I know in my heart that I am not ready to let go of the classroom just yet, though, Stubenbort said. Its hard to let go when you know that you are making an impact with the kids.Contact Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-563-5660, ext. 1334, or eworthington @chronicleonline.com.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY5, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.In The Merchant of Venice, William Shakespeare wrote, At the length, the truth will out. Whenever you play bridge, dwell at length on your long suits because, in truth, they will usually generate extra tricks. Some players are too wedded to high-card points and forget to add value for a long suit. When I watched this deal being played, I liked Souths one-no-trump response. His hand was so soft, with defensive, not offensive, values. (He thought about passing, but no one would do that today.) Then North surprised me by raising to two no-trump. Yes, he had only 17 high-card points, but he should have added two points for his six-card suit and jumped to three no-trump. True, if West had been psychic and led a diamond, the contract would probably have gone down two. But he understandably chose a spade, selecting the 10, showing zero or two higher honors by partnership agreement. South won with his queen and played a club to dummys queen. East should have ducked this, which would have perhaps tempted South into an indiscretion. (He might have, for example, played a heart to his queen. Then West could have won and returned to a heart.) However, East won the trick and shifted to a low heart. West won with his ace and returned a heart. In the fullness of time, declarer took nine tricks. It would have been much better play for South to have led his club jack at trick two, so he could have stayed in his hand to repeat the club finesse if it were winning (or, here, East ducked).

Weve only been dating for seven months, but I love her very much. However, a few things about her drive me up the wall. We live apart, and that is fine she stays with me for a week and then goes home for a week. Heres the problem. She is an impulsive shopper. She never leaves a store without picking up something, even though she doesnt need it. Secondly, she is a terrible procrastinator, changing our meeting times constantly. Finally, and worst of all, she is a huge risk taker. She tries to impress everyone and acts as if she is still in her 30s. Recently, in the middle of a freezing snowstorm, she told me she was going to the gym. I said, Are you nuts? Her comment was, I am a good driver and know how to handle the snow. A few months ago, we were at the ocean, and she decided to see how far out she could swim. The lifeguard finally had to whistle her to come back in. She told him, I know what I am doing. She once tried to hand-feed a raccoon. She now wants to try skydiving and ziplining. I reminded her that she is 65 and needs to be a little more careful. But she gets mad at me when I say things like that, commenting that shes been doing these kinds of crazy things all her life. I am really afraid that one day her luck is going to run out. How do I address this situation without upsetting her? Or am I being overly protective? Worried Dear Worried: Please do not assume that age is a factor. Plenty of 65year-olds are perfectly healthy and extremely active. Unless your friend has a physical condition that limits her ziplining and skydiving, dont upset yourself over it. Handfeeding a raccoon is simply idiotic, however, and some of her behavior indicates that she lacks sound judgment. If thats a recent development, she should see her doctor. Otherwise, we suggest you stop reminding her how old she is. She seems sensitive about it and is likely to overcompensate. Dear Annie: I am a caregiver for my husband, who was diagnosed with Lewy body dementia three years ago. Before that time, I had never heard of Lewy body dementia, nor did I know that there are actually four distinct dementia classifications: Alzheimers, Lewy body, frontal lobe and vascular. At this time, there are 1.3 million Americans who have been diagnosed with Lewy body dementia, which is the second most common progressive dementia and is believed to be under-diagnosed. These individuals are drug sensitive, and the incorrect drugs can cause full-blown dementia. Anybody who shows signs of dementia should see their primary care physician and request a referral to a neurologist for proper diagnostic testing the sooner, the better. Trinidad, Calif. Dear Trinidad: Thank you for calling this to our attention. Aside from the familiar cognitive symptoms of dementia (which are also common to Alzheimers), Lewys includes visual hallucinations, as well as movement disorders that may be related to Parkinsons. The earlier it is diagnosed the sooner treatment can begin. Those who wish to know more about Lewy body dementia can contact lbda.org. Dear Annie: After reading North Carolina and Less Generous, I realized that we have become too busy to say thank you. Children raised by loving, considerate parents have no time for them; grandchildren dont visit grandparents or acknowledge gifts. I fear that decency and values are slowly leaving the younger generations. If changes arent made, it will be a sad world to live in. The future is up to them. May those who still possess good manners be a significant influence on their peers to prompt change.
