The Alachua County Sheriffs Office said Paul Rowles likely abducted the woman who disappeared while going for an evening walk 25 years ago this Sunday. She was 20. This case is highly, highly probable that Paul Rowles is the suspect in the disappearance and likely murder of Tiffany Sessions, Sheriff Sadie Darnell said. Standing in front of a dig site where investigators spent the last two weeks searching for Sessions remains, Darnell explained why she believes Rowles abducted and killed Sessions. All indicators have pointed to him, Darnell said. Theres not a DNA connection with him and Tiffany Sessions, and its probably remote at this point 25 years later that there will be a DNA connection. But every other connection is there. Detectives interviewed Rowles about the DNA match in 2012. Alachua County Sheriffs Detective Kevin Allen returned in 2013 to ask about Sessions, but Darnell said Rowles was medically unable to cooperate. STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the ChronicleThe musical show band 24K Gold performs Saturday at Curtis Peterson Auditorium in Lecanto High School, performing songs and skits from the 1950s through the s. PATFAHERTY Staff writerCitrus Countys biggest show is hitting the road for new opportunities south of the border. After nine years and more than 100 local shows, 24K Gold Music is moving to Belize. The 130-member group, whose members are mostly related, has made its mark performing an extensive repertoire of American classics and oldies in fully costumed, choreographed, decorated productions. Their playlist includes more than 550 songs and evening shows feature a special Elvis tribute complete with teddy bears being tossed into the audience. We intended to close out the shows last spring, but our fans around the country were very sad and that made us very sad, manager/performer Doyle Armstrong said. So we decided we would go on for one more year, and then we would move. Armstrong started what he describes as a musical project back in the 1990s. The musicians were living in Kentucky at the time and decided to move to Florida, hoping to reach more seniors. They ended up in Citrus County on 90 acres between Inverness and Floral City where the families could live and rehearse. After years of constant practice they The music must move on Police say man who died in 2013 likely murdered UF student 25 years ago Paul Rowleshas been linked to the disappearance of Tiffany Sessions.

A waterfronts working group had completed work on a list of recommendations to alleviate the chaotic conditions that can be present in and around the channel near the water entrance to the 57-acre property. The groups recommendations include: Banning open alcohol containers in canals east of the Kings Bay bridge. Placing a mooring field in the canal near the entrance. Setting aside an area west of the entrance for a manatee sanctuary in the winter and swimming area in the summer. The city council also has scheduled a town hall meeting to discuss immediate human access to the land portion of Three Sisters Springs. That meeting is set for 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21, also at City Hall. State Supreme Court orders review of drugTALLAHASSEE The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday ordered a review of the new drug used in the states lethal injection cocktail in the case of Paul Augustus Howell, a Death Row inmate scheduled for execution Feb. 26. Justices ordered a circuit court to hold an evidentiary hearing on whether substitution of the drug midazolam violates the constitutional protections against cruel and unusual punishment by the government. Howells lawyers argued in briefs filed Tuesday that midazolam, the first of the three drug-cocktail that induces unconsciousness, paralysis and cardiac arrest, is problematic because it will not anesthetize him and would leave him unable to communicate his agony when the other drugs are administered. The justices rejected an appeal about the new drug in a previous case, but in a four-page order issued Thursday said that an experts report submitted by Howell has raised a factual dispute, not conclusively refuted, as to whether the use of midazolam, in conjunction with his medical history and mental conditions, will subject him to a substantial risk of serious harm. The court also ordered the Department of Corrections to produce correspondence and documents from the manufacturer of midazolam concerning the drugs use in executions. The high court ordered the 2nd Judicial Circuit in Jefferson County to hold a hearing and enter an order by 2 p.m. Wednesday.From staff and wire reports NEWS BRIEFS
went public in 2005, performing at the Sumter County Fair, the first of many venues. If we count all our shows at all locations since we started, we have performed roughly 350 shows in Florida, he said. Armstrong said every cent the group took in through tickets, concessions, CDs and DVDs, went back into the show for production and advertising. They also pay licensing fees, insurance, marketing, equipment maintenance and other costs. Members, who also work regular jobs, pay for their own transportation and related expenses. None of us have ever been paid for any aspect of our work, Doyle said. We knew that from the start we would not be able to make money doing this, and we were fine with that. He said they wanted to make a difference for people by making them happy or making them feel young again. They also set aside the closing moments of each show to honor veterans. Armstrong said while they always knew no show would cover all its cost, they eventually realized they could not stay in Citrus County and continue holding the shows. We decided to go somewhere where we could work for ourselves, farming, etc., and could cheaply construct and manage a music show hall, he said. Subsequently, they purchased a large piece of land just outside the capital of Belize. They are working toward increasing tourism in the country and we want to be of help in that, he said, adding that some of the families have already moved down, but they still have a full crew here for the final shows. While group members have kept a low local profile off stage, one of the singers remarked that leaving Citrus County after nine years is like leaving family members. But she added, at the same time, the new opportunity in Belize is pretty exciting. The groups last Florida show will be in Ocala on March 16, with two shows in Citrus County on March 9. He said full-length shows generally run 135 to 150 minutes, but the last show in Citrus County will likely be longer.A2FRIDAY, FEBRUARY7, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL/STATE 000H91U THURSDAY Rib Eye . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $19.95 Martini Night 4pm-10pm Specialty Martinis . . . . . . . $5.00 SUNDAY Award Winning Sunday Brunch 11:30am-2:00pm . . . . . . . . $15.95 at Plantation on Crystal River 9301 W.

Emmanuel, who went by Dina to co-workers and the public, oversaw county facilities such as the Citrus County Auditorium and Citrus Springs Community Center. She was fired Dec. 27 after nine years on the job. Emmanuel, who worked for the countys Parks and Recreation Division, is appealing her dismissal to assistant county administrator Cathy Pearson. The date for a hearing was scheduled and then cancelled and has not yet been rescheduled. Emmanuel was fired after county officials investigated an anonymous claim that she was using the countys Wright Express gasoline card for personal use. County officials said they reviewed multiple records and receipts. The county determined that Emmanuel used the card excessively and with no oversight or reasoning for the amount of purchases, according to her termination letter. The county fired Emmanuel for conduct unbecoming a county employee, failure to perform job duties, falsification of records, improper use of county equipment and violation of state law. The Wright Express card is issued to employees who drive county vehicles or use county equipment. Employees are not to use the card for their own vehicles, officials said. ARRESTContinued from Page A1 The best piece of circumstantial evidence was found after Rowles death. Detectives discovered a 2002 calendar/journal/address book in his prison cell with names and dates of his victims. It also had the date Sessions disappeared 2/9/89 with #2 written on either side. Detectives believe Rowles was referring to his second victim. It may not be a smoking gun, but its close, said Sessions father, Patrick. Weve got a lot here, and theres a lot more that yall dont know. Rowles was sentenced to life in prison in 1976 for a murder in Miami, but under old Florida law, was paroled in 1985. He moved to Gainesville in April 1988, 10 months before Sessions disappeared. According to detectives, he worked delivering scaffolding to a construction site near where Sessions walked daily. He was not working the day she went missing. Rowles also has been tied to a Gainesville murder. Rowles ended up back in prison in July 1994, sentenced to 19 years for armed kidnapping and sexual battery of a minor in Clearwater. In 2012, DNA evidence linked Rowles to Beth Foster, a Santa Fe Community College student. Her body was found March 26, 1992, in a wooded area in southwest Gainesville the same spot where detectives had been searching for Sessions remains. MISSINGContinued from Page A1

Fruitland police say 2year-old Marissa Daniels had been playing with other children Wednesday morning before she went missing. Marissas parents and others had been helping friends move out of the home when the girl disappeared. Police responded to the home, and a department K-9 quickly led officers to a small hole that turned out to be a broken septic tank lid.

Associated PressJACKSONVILLE A Florida man intended to kill a teen outside a convenience store after an argument over loud music, even though the 17-year-old posed no threat, prosecutors said Thursday during opening statements of the mans murder trial. Michael Dunn, 47, is accused of killing Jordan Davis, who was outside the Jacksonville store with his friends in November 2012. An argument began after Dunn told them to turn the music down, police said. One of Davis friends lowered the volume, but Davis then told him to turn it back up. Dunn, who had a concealed weapons permit, pulled a 9 mm handgun from the glove compartment, according to an affidavit, and fired multiple shots into the SUV, striking the Marietta, Ga., teen in the back and groin. Prosecutor John Guy told jurors that Davis posed no threat to Dunn and that there was no weapon in Davis truck. Jordan Davis was upset, no doubt. He was cussing, no doubt. He raised his voice, no doubt. But he never threatened the guy, Guy said. The only thing he had on his person was a cellphone and a pocket knife. They stayed in his pocket. Dunns attorney, Cory Strolla, told jurors that Dunn felt threatened and fired in self-defense. Under Florida law, Dunn had every right not to be a victim, the defense attorney said. During the argument, Davis brandished the pocket knife, which was 4 inches and serrated when opened, Strolla said. Davis words to Dunn were, I should kill you right now, Strolla said. A witness said he pulled up to the store and went inside where the music was loud enough to be noticeable. When Steven Smith went outside, he said he noticed the music had stopped. Smith said he heard someone from a Volkswagen Jetta say, Nope, youre not going to talk to me that way. Smith testified that he then saw a man reach into the glove compartment through the passenger window, pull out a pistol and fire into the SUV. The SUV started driving off and Smith said he noticed bullet holes in the side of the car. Smith said he never saw anyone with a weapon in the SUV. Another witness, Shawn Lee Atkins, said he was sitting in his truck outside the store when he heard shots fired. The SUV backed up and sped off, and Atkins said he saw man crouched behind his open car door firing at the vehicle. Atkins said he memorized the license plate of the shooters car and went inside the store to write it down on a paper bag. The stores clerk testified she was waiting on Dunns fiancee inside the store when she heard the shots. Mariah Grimes testified that she saw a man firing a silver pistol from the window of his black car. The fiancee, Rhonda Rouer, walked to the stores door at the sound of the shots and left her items and change behind, Grimes said. Rouer got into the black car which drove away, Grimes said. Guy said Dunn and Rouer drove to their hotel that night and ordered pizza. The next morning, they learned from TV news that someone had died and then drove home to South Patrick Shores. Opening remarks made in loud-music murder trial Defense: Slain man threatened defendant, saying I should kill you right now PATFAHERTY Staff writerSandee Goff brings a bias to her businesses: Our family loves ice cream, she said. So now she is targeting all area ice-cream lovers with her new shop in Hernando. The one-word sign on wall says it all Indulge. She is there to make it happen. Goff is the proprietor and staff at Sandees Ice Cream in Hernando Plaza on North Florida Avenue (U.S. 41). The shop opened Jan. 3, quickly ramping up to meet a wide range of ice cream appetites. It now boasts 31 regular flavors of hand-dipped ice cream, four yogurts and four no-sugar-added flavors, three of which are fat-free, plus soft-serve. From this selection, plus fruit and toppings, she can craft most traditional ice cream treats, shakes and sundaes, plus a few of her own creations. Butter pecan has emerged as a favorite flavor, though many kids prefer Superman, which mirrors the superheros colors. The location has an intentionally designed, welcoming down-home look with handpainted artwork, tables and chairs and a checkered tile floor. The ice-cream parlor atmosphere is catching on with customers, who will often stick around, enjoying their purchase while talking with Goff or other customers, who are mix of local residents and snowbirds. This is my first adventure, she said, describing the venture with her husband on becoming entrepreneurs. Local residents, they see the shop as filling a local need. We did a little research, once we decided we were going to do the ice cream, she said. She spoke with the people at downtown Inverness wellknown Ice Cream Dr. and spent a half day learning at Lickity Splits Ice Cream store in Bushnell, followed by a food-handling course. Pretty much the rest was learned on our own, she said, admitting the new business is more than a full-time job. As for the location, We were ideally looking for something around this vicinity, she explained. This is an ideal location, it can be seen from the light and we have a view of the lake. It is also on the Withlacoochee State Trail. The shop is open from noon to 9 p.m. seven days a week. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Ice-cream lover becomes ice-cream entrepreneur in Hernando First-time homebuyer class offered Saturday Special to the ChronicleBiologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) reported a preliminary count of 4,831 manatees in Florida during this years statewide aerial survey, conducted in late January. Over two days Jan. 24 and 27 a team of 20 observers from nine organizations counted 2,317 manatees on Floridas east coast and 2,514 on the west coast of the state. The final numbers will be available following verification of survey data. This years manatee count is the third highest we have recorded since the first statewide aerial survey in 1991, said Gil McRae, director of the FWCs Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. We are encouraged by the relatively high count, especially given the high number of manatee deaths documented recently. Information on warm-water habitat use from this years survey will be integrated with manatee survival and reproductive rates to update future population projections. The goal of the aerial manatee survey is to count as many manatees as possible, providing researchers with a minimum number for manatees in Florida waters and a snapshot of where they are at the time of the survey. Weather conditions and manatee behavior during the survey have a large effect on survey counts. Because these factors vary from year to year, this count cannot be used to determine longterm population trends. After two winters of above-average temperatures, this year we received several consecutive, strong cold fronts that helped to gather manatees at warm-water sites where they could be more easily counted, said FWC manatee biologist Holly Edwards. The surveys highlight the importance of warm-water habitat to manatees in the winter, increasing researchers understanding of manatee distribution and relative use of these areas that are essential to manatee health and survival. The survey information helps managers better protect this endangered species.

Twentieth Century Foxs Fantastic Four reboot is expected to shoot in Baton Rouge starting March 24.Recovered violin confirmed as stolen StradivariusMILWAUKEE The rare multimillion dollar Stradivarius violin stolen last month in Wisconsin has been recovered, police said Thursday. Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn said the violin was recovered from a suitcase in the attic of a Milwaukee residence overnight Wednesday. The violin appears to be in good condition, he said. Citizen tips to police and the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and information about the stun gun used in the theft led to the arrests of three people, Flynn said. Two men, ages 41 and 36, and a 32-year-old woman are in custody, according to prosecutors. The instrument was taken from the orchestras concertmaster, Frank Almond, in a brazen attack outside Wisconsin Lutheran College on Jan. 27. Almond was walking to his car after a performance at the college when someone jumped out of a van, shocked him with a stun gun and seized the Stradivarius, which was on loan to him. The robber got back into the waiting vehicle, which sped off. The violin was crafted in 1715 and has been appraised for insurance purposes at $5 million. From wire reports Associated PressPharrell Williams, shown performing at the 56th annual Grammy Awards Jan. 26 in Los Angeles, will also perform at the NBA All-Star Game on Feb. 16.

More people visited stores owned by the chain restaurant in the last quarter, and they spent more there once they got inside. Ticket sales for the movie Frozen appear to make the $7.4 billion spent by the entertainment company eight years ago a wise bet. The job-hunting website slashed its losses during the fourth quarter as the economy rebounded and more people used the site. Shares soared after Coca-Cola announced it was buying a 10 percent stake in coffee company known for its single-serve machines. The automaker spent heavily to account for economic turmoil in Europe and it fell short of Wall Streets quarterly expectations. The mood improved on Wall Street Thursday as the stock market had its best day so far this year. The climb was fueled by news that unemployment claims declined last week and by strong earnings reports from Walt Disney and other companies. 30 35 40 $45 NF DJ General MotorsGM Close: $35.23 -0.01 or flat $26.19$41.85 Vol.: Mkt.

Interestrates 000HBQ6 US stocks end higher; Dow has its best day of 2014 Associated PressAfter a rocky start to the week, U.S. stocks roared back on Thursday, giving major stock indexes their biggest gain of the year. The Dow Jones industrial average and the S&P 500 index each closed up 1.2 percent, their largest single-day increase since Dec. 18. The rally helped the market rebound a day after a modest loss and continued a gradual comeback since a plunge of more than 2 percent on Monday. The market was very oversold going into the days trading, said Jim Russell, senior equity strategist at U.S. Bank Wealth Management. The Dow Jones industrial average jumped 188.30 points, or 1.2 percent, to close at 15,628.53. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 21.79 points, also 1.2 percent, to 1,773.43. Both indexes were still down about half a percent for the week following a steep drop on Monday. The Nasdaq composite gained 45 points, or 1.1 percent, to 4,057.12. Thursdays surge began overseas, where the European Central Bank decided not to cut interest rates. The move propelled major European stock indexes sharply higher. Then the markets got a dose of good news on the U.S. job market. The Labor Department reported that fewer people applied for unemployment benefits last week. That report, combined with a private survey on U.S. hiring released Wednesday, appeared to bolster investors confidence that the government will issue a positive January jobs report on Friday. Those two numbers combined ... suggest that perhaps tomorrows numbers might look a little stronger, Russell said. All week, investors have been looking ahead to the employment survey and what it will augur for the economy. Evidence of healthy U.S. job growth would suggest that the worlds biggest economy is still expanding at a solid pace. That would comfort investors, many of whom became uneasy in recent weeks after signs of weaker global growth emerged. Those concerns were seen by some other investors as a buying opportunity. The fear in the markets has subsided some, said Marc Doss, regional chief investment officer at Wells Fargo Private Bank. Thursdays gains were broad. All 10 of the S&P 500s sectors rose. Three stocks rose for every one that fell. Stock buyers got going early on, reacting to betterthan-expected earnings late Wednesday from The Walt Disney Co. The media giant got a lift from its movie hit Frozen and sales of the Disney Infinity video game. The stock rose $3.80, or 5.3 percent, to $75.56. Akamai Technologies led the gainers in the S&P 500 index after the online content delivery company allayed fears that it had lost Apple as a customer. Akamai soared $9.76, or 20.6 percent, to $57.18. Among the other big risers were construction industry supplier Vulcan Materials, which added $5.47, or 9.1 percent, to $65.66, and OReilly Automotive, which rose $12.16, or 9 percent, to $146.72. Investors also cheered Dunkin Brands Group, which reported that more people visited stores owned by the chain restaurant in the last quarter and spent more there once they got inside. The stock added $1.59, or 3.4 percent, to $48.89. New rules would ensure safety of infant formulaWASHINGTON The Food and Drug Administration is laying out new requirements to ensure the safety of infant formula. The rules announced Thursday are designed to make sure that formula manufacturers test their products for salmonella and other pathogens before they are distributed. They would also require formula companies to include specific nutrients, including proteins, fats and vitamins. Most formula manufacturers follow these practices already, but the rules will ensure that new formulas on the market also comply with the requirements. It would also allow the FDA to better enforce those requirements.Unemployment bill stalled anew in SenateWASHINGTON Senate Republicans narrowly blocked the advance of legislation to restore benefits for the long-term unemployed on Thursday for the second time in less than a month, and Democrats said they intended to call yet another vote on the issue. The White House called the outcome disappointing. The measure called for a three-month renewal of an expired program that provided up to 47 weeks of federal benefits when statepaid aid runs out, generally after 26 weeks. The cost was estimated at slightly more than $6 billion over a decade. It would have been offset by lowering pension obligations for some companies, a step that would have increased their taxable income.Eurozone rates unchanged despite deflation fearFRANKFURT, Germany The European Central Bank is sizing up the problems facing the 18-country eurozone before it decides whether to cut interest rates to support the anemic recovery, its president said Thursday. Weak growth and an unexpected drop in inflation have raised concerns that the eurozone might slide into deflation, a sustained drop in prices that can cripple the economy. The eurozone is among the worlds biggest economic blocs, and a slide into deflation would crimp global growth. But the ECBs governing council left its interest rate benchmark unchanged at a record low of 0.25 percent at its meeting Thursday. Some analysts had thought it might cut the rate to 0.1 percent.Fears of slowdown sharpen focus on US jobs reportWASHINGTON Fears of an economic slowdown are heightening anticipation of what Fridays U.S. jobs report for January might reveal. Stock markets have sunk after signs of weaker growth in the United States, Europe and China. Turmoil in developing countries has further spooked investors. The upheaval has renewed doubts about the Federal Reserves next steps. Evidence of healthy U.S. job growth would help soothe those jitters. It would suggest that the worlds biggest economy is still expanding solidly enough to support global growth. Business HIGHLIGHTS From wire reports Jimmie Graham, 77INVERNESSJimmie L.

OPINION Page A8FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2014 Article fails to point out progress in hospital disputeAnother day, another article or editorial in the Chroniclethat glances over the past problems of the Citrus Memorial hospital and places blame on the governing body, as opposed to discussing all of the factors that have led us to this point. This past weekend, and again in todays paper, theChroniclepoints to lawsuits settled and dollars spent on legal disputes, and not to the progress that has been made to right the sinking ship and lease the hospital to professionals who have a proven record of making hospitals run more efficiently and providing quality health care to patients. The Chroniclealso fails to mention that the governing boards have introduced transparency and accountability to the hospital, all meant to reign in the spiraling debt and expenses at the hospital that were jeopardizing jobs and health care in our community. For the past four years, both boards have worked together when able and disagreed when they felt strongly about an issue. This is part of the process and part of the reason that we are where we are today. Rubber stamping and blank-check writing is never good in business or hospital management. And I believe that it is because of the hard work of all of the volunteer board members on both sides that we are in the home stretch of closing this deal and getting our community hospital on the path to excellence. The Chronicle, in its own editorial on Feb. 1, noted that someone needs to steady the rocky ship at the hospital and our hospital employees and physicians need to get refocused on providing quality health care. On these points, we could not agree more. But in order to do this, and in order for real change to be made that brings about positive improvements, some bumps along the road are to be expected. Yes, there have been problems along the way. Yes, there have been controversies and disagreements. And yes, there have been periods of disappointment and frustration for all involved. But there has also been compromise, accountability, community involvement and eventually agreement. We are now in a place that we will see the deal closed, our taxes go down and tens of millions of dollars in badly needed funds will go to services for the community. Our hospital will also continue to grow, our employees will continue to have good jobs and our community will receive the first-class care they deserve. We thank our partners at the foundation for volunteering their time, just like all of the members of the Citrus County Hospital Board have. Community service is often a thankless job, but the good that will come from this new direction for our hospital and our community has always been, and will remain, our first priority.Debbie Ressler CCHB Chairwoman CLEARWATERBecause it is this years first federal election, attention must be paid to the March 11 voting to fill the congressional seat vacated by the death in October of Florida Republican C.W. Bill Young, who served in Congress 43 years. If Democrat Alex Sink wins, the significance will be minimal because she enjoys multiple advantages. Hence if Republican David Jolly prevails, Republicans will construe this as evidence that Barack Obama has become an anvil in the saddle of every Democratic candidate. Matters are, however, murky. Tip ONeills axiom that all politics is local has been rendered anachronistic by the national government that liberals such as ONeill created. Todays administrative state touches everyone everywhere, so all politics is partly national. Politics in Floridas 13th Congressional District today concerns the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Obama carried this Gulf Coast district, a one-county constituency near Tampa, by 8.2 points in 2008 and 5.6 in 2012. Although Sink never lived in the district until very recently, she has almost 100 percent name recognition here because she has run statewide, almost winning the governorship in 2010 when she carried the county by 5.7 points. Between 2007 and 2011, she was Floridas chief financial officer. After Young died, the national and state Democratic parties moved with more dispatch than seemliness. With a robust disregard for traditional niceties, they moved Sink into the 13th District. Her real home in another county is, Jolly says he exaggerates closer to Disney World than to this districts beaches. They also prevented a primary challenge from anyone who really lives here, thereby allowing Jolly to say national Democrats decided no local Democrat was qualified to represent the locals. While she rented an apartment and began raising money, Jolly fought a nine-week primary race, from which he emerged on Jan. 14 financially depleted. He worked for Young for many years, which helps his resume, but then became a Washington lobbyist, which does not. He thinks it should, saying mordantly that politics is the one industry in which experience and qualifications count against you. He notes that whoever wins next month will have to run again in November and if he is running then, the Republican House leadership will want to give him some plums beneficial to his district perhaps assignment to committees to protect seniors and veterans. This is a purple but not a polarized district, with 37 percent Democrat and 36 percent Republican. Although the district gave the world the first Hooters restaurant, the district is unusually elderly, white and disapproving of Obamacare. It also is smoldering about the flood insurance program. The NFIP is yet another entitlement program that is proving to be more durable, and more emblematic of modern America, than Mount Rushmore. The federal government has long subsidized insurance for homeowners who live in coastal areas or flood plains. This entitlement, covering about 5.5 million of Americas 122 million housing units, is necessary because otherwise people would be required to pay the costs of the risks they choose to run for living where they are pleased to live. The NFIP enables the disproportionately wealthy people who own beach properties to socialize their storm losses while keeping private the pleasures of their real estate. The NFIP is another illustration of the entitlement states upward distribution of benefits. Recent attempts to reform the NFIP to end subsidized rates for 1.1 million properties and to change rates based on improved risk assessments threaten to raise by thousands of dollars the annual insurance costs of some property owners here. Both Sink and Jolly are competitively indignant. But the U.S. Senate, an unsleeping defender of entitlements benefiting the privileged (witness the new farm bill), has recently derailed reform. Sink will benefit from the national trend allowing early voting to obliterate Election Day. Any Floridian who has ever requested an absentee ballot henceforth gets one automatically. Seventy-seven percent of the Republican primary votes here were cast by mail in the Jan. 14 primary, and absentee ballots will be mailed on Feb. 7. Furthermore, early voting at polling places begins March 1, so many perhaps most votes will be cast before Jolly has raised much of the money necessary to communicate his message. Instead of a community deliberation culminating in a shared day of decision, an election like the one here is diffuse and inferior. If Sink wins, Republicans nationally can shrug; if Jolly wins, Democrats should tremble. But no matter who wins, the district loses because it has lost Election Day.

So have lots of folks. Water issues are discussed on television and radio, on websites and social media. Usually its along the lines of, Were wasting our water, or Were polluting our water, or Were degrading our springs, or similar themes. Its all true. Fortunately, the people who see the big picture and really care about Floridas waters wont give up so well continue to hear about it. Dont get waterwoe fatigue and just tune out. Instead, get energized and do everything you can to help turn things around. Look forward to the day when we dont have to talk about water woes. Award-winning photographer John Moran recently had a column in the Chronicleabout what were doing to our springs. He also was the featured speaker at the recent annual meeting of the Friends of the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge Complex. Plus, he has a major exhibition at the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville, along with a photo book in connection with the Springs Eternal Project. Everywhere, Morans message is the same: we are killing our springs and he backs it up with then and now photos of water bodies all over the state. In some of those photos, the clear, plentiful waters of years ago have become so low and polluted that signs warn people away. Many of those photos document how high nutrient pollution levels allow the proliferation of algal blooms and green slime. This issue wasnt helped by a recent court decision. In early January, a U.S. District Court judge said that the state of Florida can write its own rules instead of adhering to the more rigorous federal Clean Water Act requirements for most of the states waters. Environmentalists, who took the case to court in the first place, were alarmed, and rightly so. Moran has said that our state agencies used to be national models of wise water governance, but now theyre just spinning illusions of environmental protection. If the springs were our children, he said, the Department of Children and Families would long ago have acted to place them in the care of responsible adults. In 1971, Florida Gov. Reuben Askew said that ecological destruction is nothing less than economic suicide. What we need right now is real leadership from policymakers as well as real action from every Floridian. If youre asking yourself, What can I do? the answer is, Plenty. You can write to state officials including Gov. Rick Scott, Sen. Charlie Dean and Rep. Jimmie T. Smith. Write to the Southwest Florida Water Management District. Tell them water is the most important strategic issue they have in front of them today, that youre looking for their vision and you expect some solid, positive action. Stay informed read everything you can about water issues. Make things happen for example, like Art Jones and the One Rake at a Time project. More important, modify your own habits the Southwest Florida Water Management District has said that only serious reuse and conservation efforts will help us avoid running out of water. Speak to your neighbors; help them understand what water conservation means to you and get them on board. Be the voice for Floridas waters, for water lies at the heart of the Florida experience and our sustainability. THE ISSUE:Are we doing enough to protect our waters?OUR OPINION:Not yet, but theres still time to regain leadership.

And today, if you go up to Crystal River, theyre having the Manatee Festival and we have got a record number of manatees. So it shows that the dive shop owners and most of the citizens of Citrus County know how to play by the rules and do a good job and be fair. I think now its time for the Save the Manatee Club to open their eyes, step back and let Art Jones and people that really know what theyre doing proceed without hindering them or threatening them with court action every time. Thank you to everybody, though, in Citrus County.Get rid of smokingJust watched Brian Williams, NBC Nightly News, reporting on the Surgeon Generals latest report about cigarette and tobacco smoking more deadlier than they even thought.

When caregivers are looking for help, the last thing they need is medical text so complex they already forgot what they read by the time its laid back down. This is what got me started on writing about common-sense caregiving, LaBlanc writes on the back cover of his book, Staying Afloat in a Sea of Forgetfulness. Hernando County resident LaBlanc is one of the speakers at the Staying Afloat dementia care seminar at 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 13, at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Inverness. The presentation is designed for caregivers and family members of people with dementia. He also writes a column for Hernando Todayand the Tampa Tribune. The free seminar, cohosted by the United Way of Citrus County and Cornerstone Baptist Church in Inverness, also features Inverness psychiatrist Dr. Parmanand Gurnani, who will be talking about fall prevention. Mederi Home Health will have its virtual dementia tour available. Ive been doing these seminars for years, LaBlanc said in a telephone interview. Ill be sharing both the struggles and triumphs of taking care of someone with dementia, plus some practical tips. Basically, its dementia care 101. He added that the virtual dementia tour, which simulates the experience of having dementia, is a powerful tool for anyone to go through. It definitely builds empathy, he said. Amy Meek, United Way of Citrus County executive director, said the free educational event is part of the organizations health initiative. We thought this is something that would be beneficial to lots of people in our community, she said. To R.S.V.P., call the United Way office at 352795-5483. Cornerstone Baptist Church is at 1100 W.

Boehner: Immigration overhaul tough to pass Associated PressWASHINGTON Speaker John Boehner on Thursday all but ruled out passage of immigration legislation before this falls elections, saying it would be difficult for the Republicanled House to act on the issue that President Barack Obama has made a top domestic priority. In his most pessimistic comments, Boehner blamed the stalemate on widespread skepticism that Obama would properly enforce any immigration reforms that Congress approved. The GOP leader didnt mention that his own members have balked at acting on the contentious issue, which could enrage core conservative voters in the midterm election year. The American people, including many of our members, dont trust that the reform were talking about will be implemented as it was intended to be, Boehner told reporters at his weekly news conference. The president seems to change the health care law on a whim, whenever he likes. Now, he is running around the country telling everyone hes going to keep acting on his own. Just last week, Boehner and other House Republican leaders had unveiled broad principles for immigration changes, including legal status for the estimated 11 million immigrants living here illegally, tougher border security and a shot at citizenship for children brought to the country illegally. National Republicans see the failure to act on immigration as a political drag on the party after 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney captured just 27 percent of the Hispanic vote, and they are pressing for action to moderate the partys image. The principles endorsed last week were seen as a congressional jump-start for an issue that had been stalled since Senate passage of a comprehensive, bipartisan bill last June. On Thursday, shortly before House members left Washington, Boehner said, Listen, theres widespread doubt about whether this administration can be trusted to enforce our laws. And its going to be difficult to move any immigration legislation until that changes. Boehner said Obama has to rebuild that trust. White House spokesman Jay Carney dismissed that demand. The challenges within the Republican Party on this issue are well-known, and they certainly dont have anything to do with the president, Carney said. Protests Associated PressKate Fulbright shouts Thursday about Duke Energys coal plants during a protest near Duke Energys headquarters in Charlotte, N.C. Duke Energy estimates that up to 82,000 tons of ash has been released from a break in a 48-inch storm water pipe at the Dan River Power Plant on Sunday. Senate approves Baucus as China ambassadorWASHINGTON The Senate has easily approved the nomination of longtime Sen. Max Baucus as the next U.S. ambassador to China. Thursdays 96-0 vote hands the job to the moderate Democrat from Montana. As chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, the 72-year-old Baucus is a veteran of U.S. trade policy, though he has little expertise on military and other issues that have strained relations with Beijing. Baucus was a leading author of President Barack Obamas health care law. But he has also vexed fellow Democrats by helping Republicans pass bills like President George W. Bushs 2001 tax cuts.MLK estate wants his daughter to give up his NobelATLANTA The estate of Martin Luther King Jr. is asking a judge to force the civil rights icons daughter to relinquish her fathers Nobel Peace Prize and traveling Bible. The complaint against Bernice King was filed in an Atlanta court by her fathers estate, which is controlled by her brothers, Martin Luther King III and Dexter King. The lawsuit says Martin Luther King Jr.s heirs in 1995 assigned their rights to property inherited from the civil rights icon to the Estate of Martin Luther King Jr. Inc. The lawsuit says Bernice King has secreted and sequestered the medal and Bible in violation of that agreement. Bernice King said in a statement that her brothers want to sell the medal and Bible to a private buyer and that she opposes that.Mother testifies in waterboarding case in DelawareGEORGETOWN, Del. A woman said she didnt believe her longtime companion, who was a pediatrician, was washing her daughters hair when she saw him hold the girls head under a faucet. The girl has accused 60year-old Melvin Morse of waterboarding her. He is on trial in Delaware on endangerment and assault charges. Pauline Morse testified Thursday that she walked into the kitchen one time and surprised Melvin Morse while he had the now 12year-old girls head under the faucet. She said she didnt believe Morses hair-washing story because she never saw him use soap. Pauline Morse pleaded guilty last year to misdemeanor endangerment charges and agreed to testify against the doctor.

Ultra-Orthodox Jews protest pending draftJERUSALEM Thousands of ultra-Orthodox Jews blocked highways across Israel Thursday to protest attempts to draft them into the army, clashing with club-wielding police who aimed water cannons and fired stun grenades at large crowds of black-garbed men. The violent protests came just days after a Supreme Court ruling ordered funding halted to ultra-Orthodox seminaries whose students dodge the draft and laid bare one of the deepest rifts in Israeli society, highlighting the fundamental disagreements between its secular majority and a devout minority over the character of the Jewish state. Ultra-Orthodox Jews have for years been exempt from military service, which is compulsory for other Jewish Israelis. The new government immediately began pushing a bill that will alter the existing system to gradually reduce the number of exemptions and require all to register for service.Group: Iraq holding women illegallyBAGHDAD Iraq authorities are illegally detaining thousands of women, including many subjected to torture, the threat of sexual abuse and other ill treatment despite promises of reform, Human Rights Watch said Thursday. The findings by the New York-based rights group raise new concerns about Iraqs ability to handle those detained in massive security sweeps targeting militants amid an escalation in violence. Human Rights Watch said that women have been held for months or even years without charge before seeing a judge.Ghostwriter, composer part after admissionTOKYO The ghostwriter for the musician lauded as Japans Beethoven said Thursday he became fed up and ended their 18-year collaboration last year and he questioned if Mamoru Samuragochi really could hear. Samuragochi, 50, had previously claimed to be the sole author of his classical works and soundtracks for video games, such as Biohazard, despite having lost his hearing by age 35. His story resonated in Japan, where perseverance is greatly admired. But he admitted Wednesday that he did not write the powerful Hiroshima Symphony and other works credited to him. His ghost composer, Takashi Niigaki, said he provided music for Samuragochi for 18 years and questioned if he was hearing impaired. I saw no signs that he could not hear, Niigaki said. A written statement from Samuragochis lawyers apologized for what he called a betrayal of his fans. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressHouse Speaker John Boehner of Ohio pauses Thursday during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington. Boehner said Thursday it will be difficult to pass immigration legislation this year, dimming prospects for one of President Barack Obamas top domestic priorities. Lack of trust in Washington Syrian rebels free hundreds in attack Associated PressBEIRUT A suicide bomber blew himself up at the gates of a Syrian prison Thursday and rebels stormed in behind him, freeing hundreds of inmates as part of an offensive aimed at capturing key government symbols around the northern city of Aleppo. Government forces, meanwhile, dropped crude barrel bombs in deadly airstrikes as both sides escalated their fight for the strategic city ahead of a second round of peace talks set for next week. Opposition leaders threatened to suspend the talks over the barrel bombings. In the past six days alone, the makeshift weapons containers packed with explosives, fuel and scrap metal have killed more than 250 people in Aleppo, including 73 children, according to the Britainbased Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. They include at least 11 who died Thursday six of them from the same family in the opposition-held neighborhood of Masaken Hanano. Videos uploaded by activists showed the aftermath, including men weeping amid ravaged buildings and corpses covered with blankets on the pavement. Be careful. Theres a corpse under your feet. Its a child! someone shouted. The videos were consistent with reporting by The Associated Press. In other developments, the Syrian government said it has reached an agreement with the United Nations to let hundreds of trapped civilians leave besieged parts of the city of Homs and to permit U.N. humanitarian relief convoys to enter. U.S. State Department spokesman Jen Psaki welcomed the agreement, which is expected to be carried out on Friday, but warned: We should not be giving credit to a regime just for providing food for a few days to people who are starving, given thats the right moral thing to do. This is something they should have been doing all along. Weary nation asks why such a nasty winter Associated PressWASHINGTON Cold and snow keep battering the Midwest and East, and even Atlanta was temporarily paralyzed. California has been bone dry. Alaska set heat records. The wild winter somehow became even more wicked Thursday morning when the national average temperature plunged to a brutal 11 degrees the lowest temperature of a season of extremes. A weather weary nation asks a simple question: Why? The answer is the jet stream, the river of air that dictates our weather. Normally the jet stream stays in Canada or the northern U.S., going west to east in a somewhat straight line. But this winter it has plunged south, creating highpressure ridges and low-pressure troughs and taking cold polar air south and east and leaving warm, dry weather to the west. We are having an unusual jet stream thats giving us crazy cold weather in the East and the ridiculously resilient ridge as its called in California, said Weather Underground meteorology director Jeff Masters. Q: Why is the jet stream doing this? A: There are three different forces probably at work here, but scientists still need to do more research, said Derek Arndt, of the National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C. One is just the random natural variability of daily weather. Another is a mid-length weather feature called the Pacific Decadal Oscillation think of it as a cousin of El Nino that warms the northern Pacific and helps push the jet stream south. And finally, a new and controversial theory is that a warmer Arctic region and shrinking summer sea ice from man-made global warming has shifted jet stream patterns, making it wavier and bringing more unpredictable weather. Q: Is it unusual for the weather pattern to last this long? A: It doesnt happen often, but its not that unusual either, said Bruce Terry, of the National Weather Services Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Md. Q: So how cold was Thursday? A: The national average temperature of 11 degrees is the coldest of this winter and will likely be the coldest of the season, according to calculations by Weather Bell Analytics meteorologist Ryan Maue. It was computed from temperatures at 7 a.m. in the Lower 48 states. The lowest was minus 34 in Montana and several areas were minus 20, according to the National Weather Service. Q: When will it end? A: Soon enough. In Northern California, heavy rains are coming. A predicted eastern winter snowstorm this weekend is looking less mighty than it did a few days ago. Its not soon enough for the meteorologists who predict it.

Years later, as one of baseballs most beloved broadcasters, he became a big hit in a new Kiners Korner. Kiner, the Hall of Famer whose frequent malaprops endeared him to New York Mets listeners for more than a half-century, died Thursday. He was 91. The Hall of Fame said Kiner died at his home in Rancho Mirage, Calif., with his family at his side. He was a jewel, Mets Hall of Famer Tom Seaver said. Kiner hit 369 home runs during a 10-year career cut short by back problems. He debuted with Pittsburgh in 1946 and won or tied for the National League lead in homers in each of his first seven seasons. He was popular off the field, too. His Hollywood pals included Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra, he squired Liz Taylor and Janet Leigh, and he played himself in the 1951 film Angels in the Outfield. Kiner became a Mets announcer in their expansion season of 1962, working 17 years as a trio with Bob Murphy and Lindsey Nelson. Kiner called their games for 52 years in all, including a handful of them last season. Kiner was already a fixture on the Mets airwaves when he was inducted into the Hall in 1975. He was elected with just one vote to spare in his 15th and final year on the Baseball Writers Association of America ballot. The six-time All-Star outfielder still ranks sixth all-time with a home run every 14.1 at-bats.

Gage had 21 points and 19 rebounds for the Warriors (15-10), who advanced to the regional semifinals Tuesday to take on Ocala St. John Lutheran, 70-40 winner over Deltona Trinity Christian. Alyssa had a really good game, Seven Rivers coach Gary Dreyer said. Seven Rivers has lost twice to St. John, a district foe, most recently last Friday in the District 2A-3 final by a score of 53-45. Abby Kuntz had eight points and four rebounds and, according to Dreyer, forced five or six jump balls defensively. Dreyer also lauded the performance of Tessa Kacer, who was a primary ballhandler against the aggressive full-court press of Calvary Christian. Pirates fall at Rams JOHNBOOTHE CorrespondentGAINESVILLE After watching Eastsides scoring output wilt late in her senior season, Jasmine Thomas picked the perfect opportunity to reach a new career high in Thursdays Region 5A-2 quarterfinal against Crystal River. Saddled on the bench with foul trouble and held scoreless for most of the third quarter, Thomas received one message from EHS coach Lance Radford when the visiting Pirates tied the Rams at 35 apiecejust keep shooting. On pace for a 30-point performance, Thomas broke Crystal Rivers rally with one flick of the wrist and started a 14-0 run for Eastside, which ran away in the fourth quarter for a 67-51 win over the Pirates. She realizes this is her year, Radford said. I had her sitting on the bench with three fouls, so she was a little slow coming out and getting started. But once she got warmed up, you could kind of tell, she got it in her mind, This is not Grinding it out C.J. RISAK CorrespondentINVERNESS Citrus did not play its best basketball. Fortunately, the Hurricanes didnt have to. In a Class 5A regional quarterfinal contest, Citrus built an early lead and maintained it the entire game to roll past an outgunned North Marion team 46-18 on Thursday at Citrus High School. The 24-3 Hurricanes now hosts Gainesville Eastside, who defeated Crystal River 67-51; North Marion concludes its season at 6-19. Perhaps Citrus coach Dave Hamilton summed it up best: We got the job done. A final score like that, Ill take it any day. The Hurricanes likely wont get another opponent like the Colts. In Lecantos Christmas Tournament, Citrus defeated North Marion by 30 points, and it wasnt a wasted experience. Theyre so quick, so fast, Hamilton explained when asked why his team never applied the pressure defense that has propelled them this season. We did that over Christmas and it got right into their game. You cant let a team like that play into their rhythm. They like to play defense. Their weakness is shooting the ball, so we came into the gym with a plan that well make them play offense. It was an effective strategy, although the Hurricanes didnt exactly get their offense going too quickly.

Nice to have their support, no doubt. But the biggest pick-me-up they can provide? Two dazzling performances in ice dancing. The United States team was tied for the fifth-most points after the Thursday short programs for the men and pairs, technically resting in seventh after tiebreakers among 10 nations. Only the top five countries advance to the free skates, a cut made after the women and ice dancers complete their short programs. But the Americans are hardly in a precarious position, because they boast the reigning world ice dancing champs in Davis and White. Russia leads with 19 points, and the other favorite, Canada, has 17. The U.S. earned just 10 on Thursday, but has better balance then most of the squads ahead of it and two wins from its ice dancers would be worth 20 points. Still, after the falls and botched jumps from U.S. champions Jeremy Abbott and the pairs team of Marissa Castelli and Simon Shnapir, bronze may be the teams best hope. For Abbott, it was yet another rocky performance at a major international event. A four-time U.S. champ, he has never captured that magic on the biggest of stages. Before the 2010 Olympics, he beat Evan Lysacek at nationals, only to finish ninth in Vancouver while his compatriot won gold. Thursdays short program looked a lot like his first outing at the games four years ago, with Abbott crashing into the boards after falling on his opening quad jump. Yet he insisted this was completely different. He dubbed the team event a run through. Afterward, he said he told himself: All right, I had my Olympic disaster, and now I can move on and do what I came here to do. Thats the individual event, which starts next Thursday. I really wanted to pull out a win for my friends and for my family. That was very important to me. Im torn apart I couldnt do that for them, he said. But for me, I feel like it was a very positive step. Youre all going to think Im crazy. I just fell on my butt and did a horrible program. But I have another chance next week. Abbott finished with 65.65 points, seventh among the men, after managing only a single axel on a planned triple. U.S. runnerup Jason Brown is likely to replace him in Sundays free skate, a switch allowed by the rules in two of the four disciplines. Two-time U.S. champ Ashley Wagner plans to do the short program Saturday, though shes coming off a mistake-marred free skate of her own at nationals. The pairs free skate is also Saturday. The event wraps up Sunday with the mens, womens and ice dance long programs. Castelli and Shnapir, in their first Olympics, were fifth among the pairs with a personal-best 64.25 points in an international event. Castelli fell and Shnapir put his hand down on their sideby-side triple salchows, but they were solid enough overall to solidify the Americans spot in the standings after Abbotts scuffles. Associated PressMarissa Castelli and Simon Shnapir of the United States compete in the team pairs short program figure skating competition Thursday at the Iceberg Skating Palace during the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

When he retired, Kiner was sixth on the career home run list. To generations of TV viewers and radio listeners, his postcareer acclaim was as great as the honors he earned on the field. Kiners Korner was a delight for players and fans alike, where stars would join Kiner for postgame chats. I loved going on Kiners Korner. I enjoyed talking baseball with Ralph, especially learning about players from his era, former Mets star Dwight Gooden said. But what really made it special was every time you went on, you got a $100. For a rookie like me in 1984, a $100 was a big deal. Kiner was known for tripping over his own words, and often laughed about his own comments. If Casey Stengel were alive today, hed be spinning in his grave, he once commented after a misplay. On Fathers Day, we again wish you all a happy birthday, he also said. Then there was the time Gary Carter hit a winning home run in the 10th inning of his Mets debut in 1985 and Kiner introduced him as Gary Cooper, the famed actor. Gary was a great sport about it, Kiner remembered. He came on Kiners Korner afterward and introduced himself to me as Gary Cooper and even signed a picture to me, Gary Cooper Carter. His observations were pretty astute, too. Talking about a former Gold Glove outfielder, Kiner remarked: Twothirds of the earth is covered by water. The other third is covered by Garry Maddox. Kiner had a stroke about a decade ago that slowed his speech, but remained an occasional part of the Mets announcing crew. Fellow announcers such as Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling always brightened when Kiner was alongside them. Younger fans who were born long after Kiner retired also reveled in his folksy tales. As one of baseballs most prolific power hitters for a decade, Ralph struck fear into the hearts of the best pitchers of baseballs Golden Era despite his easygoing nature, disarming humility and movie-star smile, Hall President Jeff Idelson said in a statement. His engaging personality and profound knowledge of the game turned him into a living room companion for millions of New York Mets fans who adored his game broadcasts and later Kiners Korner for more than half a century, he said. He was as comfortable hanging out in Palm Springs with his friend Bob Hope as he was hitting in front of Hank Greenberg at Forbes Field. As a teen, hanging around the Hollywood Stars in the Pacific Coast League, Kiner shook hands with Babe Ruth and talked ball with Ty Cobb. In high school, he hit a home run off Satchel Paige during a barnstorming tour. After serving as a Navy pilot in World War II, Kiner had a strong rookie year and won the NL homer title with 23, beating Johnny Mize by one. He really broke loose the next year, hitting 51 home runs with 127 RBIs while batting .313. Stuck on poor teams, Kiner never made it to the postseason. He made his mark in All-Star games, homering in three straight. Kiner connected in the 1950 showcase at Comiskey Park, but made more noise with another ball he hit in the game. He hit a long drive to the base of the scoreboard in left-center field and Ted Williams broke his left elbow making the catch, causing him to miss two months. Williams always said I ruined his batting stroke, that he could never hit after that, Kiner said. Yeah, sure. He only hit .388 in Mets owner Fred Wilpon remembered Kiner as one of the most beloved people in Mets history an original Met and extraordinary gentleman. His knowledge of the game, wit, and charm entertained generations of Mets fans. Like his stories, he was one of a kind, he said. Our sport and society today lost one of the all-time greats. the first quarter, it was 2-all; North Marion missed its first six floor shots, Citrus missed its first five. A couple of baskets by Shally Morales, one a three-pointer, got the Canes going a bit they led 9-2 after one quarter. But the zone defense they used frustrated the Colts, who launched several triple tries that never hit the rim. There was less than 90 seconds left in the half when they finally scored again on a basket by Precious Miller; another hoop by Charlisa Daniels allowed them to pull to within 18-6 at the half. North Marion converted just 3 of 27 first-half shots, but Citrus wasnt too good either, making only 6 of 27. Freethrow shooting was poor for both teams throughout the game, with Citrus making 12 of 32 and North Marion hitting 4 of 27. We knew they were a pretty good team, Colts coach Tim Yarn said. We just wanted to come in and battle. Its the regionals and anything can happen, even though we didnt get the outcome we liked. Theyre more seasoned than we are, they play a lot of basketball and they have players who can play. North Marion did make a brief run at Citrus to start the second half, scoring five straight points to narrow its deficit to 18-11. But the Hurricanes quickly regained control, outscoring the Colts 12-4 in the final 6:08 of the quarter to take a 30-14 lead heading into the fourth. Morales led Citrus with 14 points, with Micah Jenkins contributing 12. Shenelle Toxen finished with six points and eight rebounds, and Danielle Smith had five points and eight boards. North Marion was paced by Miller with seven points. I told the girls at halftime you have to rebound, Hamilton said. You rebound, youll win. They did just what I asked them to do. Although Citrus remained in its zone defense throughout and did not apply pressure, it still forced 26 North Marion turnovers. However, the Hurricanes also had 20 turnovers. They had some jitters, Hamilton said when asked about the mediocre performance. We havent been this far in awhile. Question now is, how far will Citrus go? going to happen. Boosted by Thomas 12-of-18 shooting effort, the Rams received an additional 20 points from junior Kee Kee Barber, coming off an anemic, 39-32 district final win over North Marion last Friday. Eastsides starting guards also hauled in 10 rebounds each. Following its fourth tying shot of the game, Crystal River struggled to keep pace as Thomas poured in nine of the Rams 14 points during their run, including her third 3-pointer. The Pirates, meanwhile, endured a 4-minute drought before finally cutting Eastsides lead back to 12 with6:46left to play. We just came out aggressive, basically, Thomas said. We played better defense this game and when we made shots, we were able to get back on D. While Katelyn Hannigan scored 19 points to lead Crystal River and Kiersten Croyle added 15, the Pirates were plagued by frequent short-range misses and scored just eight points in the first quarter. Eastside, which shot 46 percent from the field, was able to hold Crystal River to a 34 percent shooting effort. We got tired, Pirates coach Jason Rodgers said. I should have pulled them out of the press and let them rest and then put them back in it. The difference in this game is we missed 22 layups and youre not going to beat anybody missing 22 layups. The Rams move on to their second straight regional semifinalTuesday at 7 p.m., where theyll travel to Citrus (24-3), which beat Crystal River, 68-50, in last weeks District 5A-6 final. The Hurricanes advanced past North Marion, 46-18, in Thursdays quarterfinal. One of the things that helped us was they have a really good press and we were able to break that, Dreyer said. Now turning their attention to the Saints, Dreyer was very specific in his assessment of the two teams third meeting. Going into the St. John game, theyre not going to fool us, were not going to fool them, Dreyer said. Its going to be about who is mentally prepared. The team that wants to lay everything on the court is probably going to be the one that wins, he added.

The team said Thursday that Betemit, outfielders Justin Christian and Jeremy Moore, catcher Eddy Rodriguez and right-handed pitcher Juan Sandoval also received invitations to major league spring training. The 32-year-old Betemit is a .267 career hitter who has played parts of 11 seasons with the Braves, Dodgers, Yankees, White Sox, Royals, Tigers and Orioles. Christian has spent portions of three seasons with the Yankees and Giants. Moore appeared in eight games for the Angels three years ago, and Rodriguez played in two games with the Padres in 2012. Sandoval was in spring training with the Rays a year ago, then split last season between Double-A Montgomery and Triple-A Durham.

HIGHSCHOOLSPORTSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFRIDAY, FEBRUARY7, 2014 B5 TONYCASTRO CorrespondentThirty-three Citrus County grapplers have qualified for two mat tourneys today with a singular purpose: to advance (via a topfour regional placing) to the 50thannual Florida High School Athletic Association state finals set for Feb. 14-15 at The Lakeland Center. Citrus and Lecanto are expected to enter today with as many as 21 grapplers into Hillsborough Countys vaunted Brandon High School for the Region 2A-2, aka the Region of Doom. Brandon and Springstead are defending regional champions from 2013. BHS is the states most decorated program. The Brandon Eagles, who enter with 13 grapplers, featuring 12 district champions, are seeking to extend its school and state record of 24 regional titles in a row. Meanwhile, the Citrus Countys other mat program, Crystal River, treks to Green Cove SpringsClay for the rugged Region 1A-2 tournament. Defending regional tournament champions include Clay and Lake Highland Prep. The visiting Lake Highland Prep Highlanders are the two-time defending 1A state champions. The host Blue Devils, who captured the 1A state crown in 2004, finished as state runners-ups in each of the past three seasons. As per state guidelines, both venues will begin competition at noon Friday across four mats. There will be two winners rounds and two losers rounds completed Friday. Saturday will begin with the semifinal round at 10 a.m. followed by wrestlebacks. Consolation finals (for third/fourth) and finals (first/second) will be held at 6 p.m. on two mats. Only Saturday nights top four placers in each of 14 weight divisions automatically qualify for states in Polk County.Doomsday forecast: painCitrus second-year skipper Jeff Wood understands the Herculean task ahead for the Hurricanes. The Canes finished second in last weekends District 2A-5 tournament at Springstead. CHS was led by the district championship efforts of seniors Brandon Taylor at 160 pounds and Casey Bearden at 170. Both earned their firstever first-place blue ribbons. Other CHS regional qualifiers include: seniors Tarique Cabanas at 145, Austin Renaud at 182 and Bradley Wiesenauer at 195, juniors Johnathan Loggins at 285 and Victor Segarra at 126, sophomores Christopher Keene at 106, Willie Wallen at 138, Justin Allan at 152 and Stephen Mackey at 220, along with freshman James Wright at 113. The Canes may enter with 10 grapplers. When Lake Weirs Samuel Agudelo pinned James Wright in the 2A-5 finals in 43 seconds, Wright suffered a seasonending collarbone injury. The next day, Wallen suffered a severe ankle injury. According to Coach Wood, neither is expected to compete. CHS does return four grapplers from last winters 2A-2 tournament at St. Cloud: Bearden, Cabanas, Taylor and Wiesenauer. Bearden and Taylor combined to go 7-2 and both qualified for states. Taylor and Bearden rank 1-2 on the team in victories with 51 and 45. Cabanas and Wiesenauer posted a combined 0-4 slate. CHS last regional champions were Nick McLean and Taylor Jackson in 2012 at St. Cloud. This regional is correctly labeled the Region of Doom, Wood admitted. Just look at the top teams with Brandon, Springstead, Jesuit and Lake Gibson. And theres Hillsborough, Harmony and some others that will bring some hammers. There will be kids going home from Brandon that should be at states, but wont because of the depth in the building. Coach Wood gives Brandon the top rung in the team standings, but points out that Springstead and Jesuit will be battling it out for second while Lake Gibson will most likely finish fourth. As far as the Inverness mat men, Our 160 and 170pounders are A guys and our 145 and 152 pounders can reach states if they wrestle to their ability, Wood insisted. Theres a window for the other kids, but they have to wrestle extremely well against tough guys.Lecanto: nine qualifiersLecanto placed fourth in last weekends six-team District 2A-5 tourney at Springstead. Of its original 11-man district roster, the Panthers pushed nine through to the region including: seniors Charlie Vale at 285, Cody Simmons at 220, Chris Ewing at 182, Michael Slusser at 170, Matt Wheat at 160, Nicolai Kortendick at 152 and Bryce Hickey at 145, junior Timothy Cyr at 138 and sophomore Austin Hartman at 120. Ewing was the lone LHS grappler to earn a finals berth and return with a first-place blue ribbon. Ewing enters Brandon with a team-best 29-4 slate and team-high 19 pins. Hopefully, we can get another unranked kid on the podium this year at state (like Jonah Nightengale in 2013), explained LHS sixth-year mentor Scot Roberts. I sure wish the state would have gone with the assignments that the coach from Manatee posted on Scout.com last year.He really put together a great state series. Every district had seven to nine teams and every region had a perennial powerhouse and the travel would have been light. Now Im bringing four to five kids that dont really have a chance of winning a single match.I was very pleased with how the kids wrestled last Saturday, Roberts added. We only lost two matches that could have gone either way. Last year, we didnt win a single match like that. Steven Irizzary lost the two matches that I felt could have gone either way.Predicting 1A-2Crystal River is coming off a second-place finish in the District 1A-5 tourney to Clay at The Villages. CRHS advanced 12 of its 14-member roster to Clay this weekend including: Dalton David at 106, Chase Bunts at 113, Jesse Stills at 120, Michael Allan at 126, Michael Ciccione at 132, Joel Pelton at 138, Nick Hooper at 145, C.J. Lawson at 152, Justin Burcroff at 160, Eddie Bennis at 182, Andrew Bilby at 195 and Carlos Sanabria at 220. Both Allan and Sanabria departed The Villages as district champions. CRHS returns five grapplers with regional experience including: Allan, Hooper, Bilby, Sanabria and Pelton. Pelton wrestled for Lecanto in 2A-II last winter. Allan (third) and Bilby (fourth) both placed in the region last winter. Hooper enters as the team leader in wins at 40 followed closely by Allan, Sanabria and Pelton all with 38. Veteran CRHS skipper Craig Frederick understands the minefield that lies ahead for the Pirates. Weve either got to buckle up, or theres the door, shrugged Frederick on the degree of difficulty awaiting his mat men at Clay. We cant whine or moan about who we drew, weve all got to go and wrestle our best. If we push four guys to states Ill be really happy, Frederick detailed. Our best shots to reach the finals (and automatically qualify for states) are at 132 (Allan) and at 138 (Hooper). Team-wise I think itll be a great duel between Clay and Lake Highland Prep. Tough regions await grapplers Leaving his mark Yakich placed at two different county schoolsTONYCASTRO CorrespondentImagine knowing in second grade where lifes path would guide you. For Allentown, Pa. product Ed Yakich, his life revolved around wrestling at that time. Ed was the only boy of three siblings born to Arthur and Kay Yakich. In mat circles, Iowa, Oklahoma, Ohio, Minnesota and Pennsylvania are long-standing breeding grounds for tremendous mat men. Most of my friends had started wrestling in kindergarten, noted the current 32-year-old. I still keep up with a lot of my childhood buddies that wrestled. In eastern Pennsylvania, wrestling is a lot bigger than, say, football. More fans come out and watch wrestling matches and tournaments than watch football games, he added. Its really a way of life. In my own town everyone talked about the same thing wrestling for the high school varsity team. On what kept Yakichs interest on the mats, It was a social thing for me, my friends and my parents, too, he replied. All the kids I grew up with wrestled and traveled each weekend from tournament to tournament. Up north every week it was about collecting trophies. Thats why going to somewhere like Ocean City, Maryland or Hanover was so cool, he added. Their trophies were gigantic and it was a big social thing for the parents, who were all very closely knit. Wrestling was so tough; there was also a pecking order. Even though I wrestled since I could remember, when I got to high school I was behind a state placer, recalled the current 5-foot-9, 170-pound Yakich. He paid his dues too; he was behind a state placer when he got there. Prior to Yakichs sophomore year, his parents divorced. Yakich and his father relocated with his grandparents in Citrus County. In his first season on the mats in 1996-97 with Citrus High School, Yakich dominated the 103-pound weight division. He went 21-0 to reach the FHSAA Finals at the Bayfront Center. In three bouts, he pinned three foes Sarasota sophomore Ben Schlabach (0:43), Gulf sophomore Andy Medders (4:39) and Bayshore senior Vinnie Tricarico (5:06) to reach the Class 5A state finals against Jason Casiano of Port St. Lucie. Casiano, however, denied Yakich a gold medal narrowly winning, 7-6. That season I probably had 8 to 10 matches that were somewhat competitive, Yakich recalled. If somebody put me in a hold, I never panicked; Id experienced that same hold probably 3,000 times in Pennsylvania. The mat experience up north really helped me in Florida. Yakich vividly remembered the match against Casiano, his opponent in the final. He was a little older, bigger and stronger, detailed Yakich. He was cutting weight. He was a senior cutting to 103. What I remember was I dont think I ever had the lead. He was a little more talented, older and stronger than I was. According to Yakich, after a verbal dispute, he attempted to transfer to nearby Lecanto High School. But the Citrus administration denied his opportunity to change schools. As a result, he sat out his entire junior season. Maybe not winning as a sophomore was motivation enough to come back, but not allowing a 16-yearold to do what he had a passion for rubbed me the wrong way, Yakich said. Im not denying that I caused a little trouble. Im just so glad that was over. At LHS, under the direction of Dana Wilkes and Cory Collins, all he wanted to do was to earn a wrestling scholarship to college. Coach Collins really helped me with the whole transition from Citrus to Lecanto, Yakich stated. I owe him a lot. Yakich helped his own cause posting a personalbest 41-3 campaign. His only regular-season losses were to two Springstead grapplers both state champions Dustin Swanton and Jimmy Stevenson. During the Class 4A state tournament at 119 pounds at The Lakeland Center, Yakich captured his first two bouts before losing to Englewood-Lemon Bay senior Jeremy Bowers. It was a close match the whole time with Bowers, Yakich said. He was an offensive guy, who turned defensive when he needed to be. In the subsequent final, Clewiston senior Bryan Parris captured the gold medal decisioning Bowers, 4-2. Yakich bounced back to win his final two bouts to earn the third-place bronze medal. After graduation from LHS, he entertained offers from Montclair State University in Montclair, N.J., Millersville University in Millersville, Pa., Bloomsburg University of Pa. and Gardner-Webb University, in Hickory, N.C. He eventually chose Gardner-Webb University because teammate Jason Barber also went there. After competing for the Bulldogs for a season, he opted to transfer to Bloomsburg. He not only met his future wife, Sharla, at Bloomsburg but earned his Bachelor of Science degree in computer information systems. For the past two years, Yakich has sold medical devices for critical care units and health systems featuring the Glidescope and the Bladder Scan. The Yakich family resides in Largo and includes a 2-year-old daughter, Brielle. Even after college, wrestling has played a significant role in Yakichs life. Hes remained active in the sport officiating for an association out of Tampa. For the past nine years, hes also traveled to the NCAA Division I Finals. Wrestling has been inspirational to my success. Wrestling has encompassed my entire life its really all I know, Yakich said. Wrestling teaches you so many things about yourself, he said. The beauty of the sport is you cant point fingers at anyone else its all on you. I love the sport, he added. It teaches about the highs of winning and how to deal with lows of losing. Once people understand the sport and the foundation it creates, success will surely follow. Special to the ChronicleLecanto wrestler Ed Yakich competes for the Panthers during the 1998-99 season, which he eventually capped with a third-place finish in the FHSAA Class 4A state finals. Special to the ChronicleEd Yakich, far right, currently lives in Largo with his wife Sharla and their 2-year-old daughter Brielle. Four ready for trip to state meet LARRYBUGG CorrespondentFour Citrus County girls get the chance to prove that they can demonstrate mind over matter Saturday in Kissimmee. Lecantos Breanna Johnson and Citrus Hannah Evans, Sam Kanawall and Anna Venero will all be competing in the 2014 FHSAA State Girls Weightlifting Meet at the Kissimmee Civic Center. Competition starts at 10:30 a.m. Saturday All four girls may be able to overcome any nerves and earn a medal. Of course, for most lifters, they have won just by reaching state. The Hurricanes will be lifting their last meet for head coach Tia Nelson. After six years, she has resigned as coach to spend more time with her family. She will continue teaching. Im excited we were able to bring so many girls there, Nelson said. They will fight for everything. Citrus best performance was when Lauren Rashley took second place in 2011. She also came back from an injury to place fourth her senior year. All three Hurricanes are returning state qualifiers: Evans and Venero are seniors. Kanawall, a junior, took sixth place in 2013. Evans looks like she has the best shot at a medal. The junior won the 154-pound class at the qualifier. She had a 165-pound bench press and a 150-pound clean and jerk for a 315-pound total. Hannah has a real shot at top six, Nelson said. She is always smiling. Very focused. She is well deserving. She works really hard and has a positive attitude. She is the toughest I have. Kanawall had to overcome an ankle injury. She had a 160-pound bench press and a 140-pound clean and jerk at the qualifier. Her total was 300 pounds. Sam will pull out something in that bench, said Nelson. Her ankle injury held her back. Venero and Kanawall are both in the 183-pound class. Venero had a 155-pound bench and a 140-pound clean and jerk. Her total was 295 pounds. She really wants it bad, Nelson said of Venero. Anna has been working the hardest. Today, I had to tell her to go home. She is working to improve. Johnson will be making her one and only trip to state. She won the 139-pound class with a 140-pound bench press and a 135-pound clean and jerk for a 275-pound total. She is there to enjoy and accomplish whatever she can. Every day, she and I work an hour and a half to two hours in the weight room, said Lecanto coach Bob LeCours. Give her all the credit. She comes down with a great work ethic. Thats something she has always had. We are always looking to see how she does. She is in the middle of the pack. We are hoping she can do 295. That is going to be a push. Her health is good. Her spirit is fantastic, LeCours continued. Girls weightlifting is quite a spectacle. Your job is do your best and come out with a personal best. She has been in some big meets. She is working hard to prove that she can (medal).
B6FRIDAY, FEBRUARY7, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Special to the ChronicleOcala Trinity Catholic senior Alizah Robinson (a Citrus County resident) signed with Howard University, an FCS school in Washington, D.C. Pair of county residents will play out of stateJON-MICHAELSORACCHI Staff writerTwo Citrus County residents signed National Letters of Intent on Wednesday, as Ocala Trinity Catholic seniors Reid Carlton and Alizah Robinson will play college football this fall. Carlton, a quarterback, inked with Division II Catawba College in North Carolina, while Robinson, a cornerback, is heading to FCS school Howard University in Washington, D.C. Robinson played at Lecanto through his junior year he was a finalist for the ChroniclesDefensive Football Player of the Year for the 2012 season before transferring to Trinity Catholic. Listed at 5-foot-8, 150 pounds, Robinson possesses speed, good instincts and hits hard for a player of his stature. Carlton, who is a threeyear starter under center for the Celtics, is more of a pocket passer at 6-foot-2, 220 pounds. He thought Catawba offered him the best opportunity at the next level. To me, everything they offered was what I was looking for, Carlton said. They run a single-back spread offense and averaged about 35 pass attempts a game last year. The quarterback said he thought a broken foot he suffered last spring hindered his ability to catch on with a Division I program, yet he still received some intriguing offers. Butler Community College in Kansas wanted me, theyre a pretty wellknown program, said Carlton, who also counted some other D-II and NAIA schools among his suitors. Carlton, who played for Lecanto Middle School before leaving for Trinity Catholic, credited the Trinity Catholic coaching staff, his family mother Deedee and father Andy, who played quarterback at Wake Forest in the early 1970s as well as then LMS head football coach Chuck Holstein for helping him develop. They prepared me big time, it helps a lot in my mind, said Carlton, who plans to major in business. Citrus Countys Carlton, Robinson set for college ball In search of the wintertime fish In this weeks article, were going to cover where to maybe find and catch some of these cold sluggish wintertime fish. First and foremost, (and this is one of the biggies of this whole message) redfish and trout never venture further than 5 miles from where they were born. Redfish will, at about 31 inches and 4 to 5 years old, migrate offshore to converse with the rest of the big spawners. And a trout of about 18 inches will be around 5 years old. I also want to reiterate that these fish still have to eat during the cold times; they just dont have to eat as much because theyre not burning as much energy. How much does a grizzly eat when theyre buried up in a hole or cave somewhere during the winter? I know fish dont hibernate, but they can sure get lethargic. You dont exhaust a lot of energy; you dont need a lot of energy. But boy, dont get in that grizzlys way when spring time comes! Same with the fish. Now, on to where theyre hiding during these cold times. If they dont venture far, then we dont have to go far to find them. Start near where you have caught fish during spring, summer, or fall. The places we want to concentrate on instead of the flats and nearshore waters are areas such as river mouths and creek mouths. Think about it like an hour glass. Everything, including the water, food source and the like has to travel through these areas: lots of moving water, moving lots of stuff through a channeled spot. If youre sitting at the table and a conveyer belt is bringing the food by, and all you have to do is open your mouth and take the offering, wouldnt that be a good place to start? That doesnt take much energy, does it? Also, the moving water can create a couple degrees warmer water temperature. And yes, these mouths will usually be a little deeper than the surrounding area because of the constant swash (a trout stream term, meaning a swishy wash). Other areas of particular interest will include depressions, holes, channels, (if not plagued by traffic) and springs. Check this out. One very overlooked area are docks and seawalls that warm up with the suns rays, and prop wash spots near docks. Folks that have boat lifts usually have an area where they have washed out a hole during loading or unloading. Just look toward the rear of where any boat is docked, or lifted. I have seen trout, reds, sheepshead, mangrove snapper and even snook lying in these holes. And if that hole is only 4 feet deep, that will sometimes be 2 feet deeper than the rest of the area. Or, the deepest spot at low tide. Other areas of interest will be where a mud bottom meets a sandy bottom. Sand will warm up faster than mud; also, sand areas that meet rocky or oyster bar areas. Now, lets think for a second on some previous trips and encompass all this together. Perhaps you caught fish in the fall, and these fish were at an area you found that was near a river or tidal creek mouth. And this mouth area is a little deeper than the rest of the area. It also has a sandy bottom that happens to be near some rocks. And there is (preferably outgoing) tidal water moving through that may even be at or near a seawall or dock. I guarantee you if fish arent there, you may as well go grab the golf clubs and play a round.

More exciting hoops in YMCA league Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston says Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher was on the money when he said that the Heisman winner might play two more years of college football. Winston told The Associated Press Thursday, thats indeed his plan. The redshirt freshman said he and Fisher who said Wednesday while talking about the Seminoles recruiting class that the QB will be in Tallahassee two more years have a good relationship, so whatever he says most likely is true. Obviously Im a big baseball person, so thats an accurate statement because I plan on playing baseball next season anyway, said Winston, who is expected to be the Florida States closer this season. Many NFL draft experts believe Winston would have been a high first-round pick, possibly No. 1 overall, if he was eligible for this years draft in April. NFL Media draft analyst Gil Brandt, who helped build the Super Bowl-winning Dallas Cowboys as vice president of player personnel from 1960 to 1989, has said Winston has a bright NFL future. Since the 20 year old will be eligible for the 2015 NFL draft, Fisher said, Everybody says, well hes going to stay one (more) year and leave. ... I think itll be two. Winston said hes not thinking that far ahead, but since he plans to play baseball next year it would be difficult to also prepare for the NFL combine at the same time. Obviously, Im not even worried about the draft and stuff like that, Winston said Thursday. Im worried about winning championships here at Florida State. Associated PressPartially because he wants to play another season of baseball, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston said its likely he will play two more seasons of football before declaring for the NFL draft. Wet out west Loupe leads at delayed Pebble Beach Associated PressPEBBLE BEACH, Calif. Andrew Loupe knows how one week can change everything. He can only hope his 8-under 63 in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am is the start of another one. Loupe had to wait three hours to tee off because of rain Thursday, and then he played bogey-free on the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula. That gave him the lowest score among those who finished their rounds. Rain soaked the Monterey Peninsula in the morning, which was great news for an area desperate for rain, not so much for the tournament. Puddles quickly formed on the greens at Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill, forcing play to be stopped on all three courses. Monterey Peninsula played the easiest, and Loupe took advantage. He never had to scramble for par, missed only one fairway and only two of his birdies were over 10 feet. This was his first trip to the area, and it was everything he imagined. This place is amazing, Loupe said with a smile as wide as a fairway. The 25-year-old from Louisiana hasnt made the cut in five starts his rookie season. Loupe might not even have a PGA Tour card except for his tie for sixth in the last event of the Web.com Tour Finals. He had missed the cut in his previous three Finals event. Stuart Appleby, Jim Renner, Richard Lee and Scott Gardiner had 65s at Monterey Peninsula. Phil Mickelson, a four-time champion, was at 5-under par through 15 holes when the round was stopped because of darkness. Pebble Beach played the toughest, though the weather was not nearly bad enough to make that much of a difference with only a cool breeze and no rain the rest of the day. Jimmy Walker, already a two-time winner this season, got up-and-down for birdie on the 18th for a 66, the best score at Pebble. Jordan Spieth, playing with country singer Jake Owen, had the best round at Spyglass Hill at 67. He picked up birdies on all but one of the par 5s, stuffed one close on the uphill second hold and escaped with par with a long pitch from short of the sixth green. It was more of an effort just to really play safe on the harder holes, Spieth said. The par 5s you can take advantage of out here. I three-putted the first par 5 for par, but bounced back on the other par 5s. And then I finally made some putts on the back nine. We picked a great day to have Spyglass. Dustin Johnson, a twotime winner of this event, had a 68 at Spyglass Hill playing with his future father-in-law, hockey great Wayne Gretzky. More happy with the fact he was 4 under today and its a tough course, Gretzky said. Im here for fun. Hes here for work. Johnson had to work hard for his birdie on the ninth hole. His approach struck the pin and bounced back some 40 yards off the green. He chipped that in for his third straight birdie, and then picked up another birdie on the par-5 11th. He closed with seven pars for what he believes was his first bogey-free round at Spyglass.Australian Ladies MastersGOLD COAST, Australia Jessica Korda birdied her last three holes for a 5-under 68 and a share of the lead with fellow American Katie Burnett after the first round of the Australian Ladies Masters. The 20-year-old Korda is coming off a victory in the LPGA Tours seasoningopening event in the Bahamas, She won the 2012 Womens Australian Open at Royal Melbourne.

Now forced to live in close quarters with the other, there is a constant battle of the wills between the two, something that is troubling to their children, particularly with Alice pregnant and expecting a child any day. When Alice goes into labor, the area is mired in a deep snow storm that forces Jerry to stay in the city with Alice, leaving the two seniors alone. They are worried about their parents, and hope no knives will come out until they can return to referee them. When the young couple returns with their baby, they find to their surprise that both parents are still alive and well, but both are determined to move out. Squabbles is directed by Peter Abrams. Bonita Martin is the stage manager. Bill Scott plays Abe and Pam Schreck plays Mildred. Howard Christ III plays Jerry and Kelly Lapp plays Alice. The governess Mrs. Fisher is played by Jacki Scott, Hector the Puerto Rican handyman is played by George Wurster, and Peter Abrams plays Sol Wasserman, a neighbor of the young couple.

Associated PressYoung and old fans alike know the joy of dumping a set of Legos on the floor and chucking that instruction manual. After all, throwing a portion of a helicopter on an incomplete racecar could produce the ultimate hybrid. In The Lego Movie, the toy brands first theatrical feature (there have been previous straight-to-DVD movies and also video games), audiences are encouraged to wave off routine. Lego doesnt need a 3-D animated flick with a $60 million budget to drive sales, but it should expect a spike after this uproarious yet touching tale hits theaters. When average construction worker Emmet (voiced by an endearing Chris Pratt) accidentally falls into a pit at his worksite, he is met by Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks), a sassy, Goth chick channeling Trinity in this Matrix for kids. Wyldstyle believes Emmet is a Special master builder who can save Bricksburg from the evil President Business (played with charming bite by Will Farrell), who wants to douse the town with a Krazy Gluelike substance called kragle. Unfortunately, Emmet is a reluctant hero, but not because hes shy. Hes just never really had an original thought. Hes been more than happy to adhere to every rule, become overly excited about taco Tuesday and adore any song on the radio. (The addictive Everything Is Awesome pops up throughout.) A lax-toned Morgan Freeman plays Vitruvius, the almighty wizard who helps Emmet believe hes more than just a mediocre block of plastic by encouraging him to trust his instincts. Written and directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs), The Lego Movie ranks high among other animated favorites about courageous toys, such as Pinocchio and Toy Story. Lord and Miller nail the fuzzy believe-in-yourself message and score with a spoofheavy, yet engaging plot. Film editors David Burrows (Happy Feet) and Chris McKay (Robot Chicken) create stopmotion animation thats perfectly paced so the story never lulls. The facial expressions of the mini-figures move as any other animated characters would, but the Lego bodies remain robotic and true to real-life form. However, it is fun to see how the animators conceive a wavy sea. (The film was made using an astounding 3,863,484 unique bricks.) The effects stretch the imagination just enough, but not so much as to deter from an alltoo-familiar Legoland setting. Lord and Miller ensure that the laughs persist, as they focus on Legos ability to be the butt of the joke. Batman (Will Arnett), who plays a major supporting role, is a bit of a bully and when Emmet attempts to rally a band of familiar good guys with a speech highlighting his ordinariness, we see that Wonder Woman, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and even Milhouse from The Simpsons could care less. And by mingling the Lego world with relics like a BandAid, nail polish remover and a mostly eaten sucker (Vitruvius staff), the mockery ensues. The filmmakers could have easily made one long, monotonous ad for the beloved brand thats been around for more than 55 years. Instead theyve created a delightful tale championing self-reliance and distinctiveness. And though it detours from a strict brick world in the final act, the cheery humor always clicks. The Lego Movie, a Warner Bros. release, is rated PG for mild action and rude humor. Running time: 100 minutes. Three and a half stars out of four.

Associated PressGeorge Clooney, movie director, started out with so much promise. He began with two stories about televisions power, both to distort reality (Confessions of a Dangerous Mind about Gong Show host Chuck Barris) and to reveal it (Good Night, and Good Luck, about Edward R. Murrow). Neither was perfect, but the films showed tremendous potential, particularly the latter, with its thick clouds of paranoia and cigarette smoke. But Clooney has gone somewhat astray, with the football comedy Leatherheads, the political thriller The Ides of March and now The Monuments Men. Theyre not bad pictures, but nostalgia made urgent in Good Night suffocates the World War II caper The Monuments Men like it did the screwball ode Leatherheads. Clooneys taste is very good, and in adapting Robert M. Edsel and Bret Witters book by the same title about the Allied forces pursuit of art masterpieces stolen by Nazis, he has chosen a fascinating historical tale that also bears the intriguing question: Whats the price were willing to pay for art? But while a Michelangelo may be worth dying for, The Monuments Men is, at best, adequately priced as a movie ticket. Clooney, working from a script he penned with his frequent collaborator Grant Heslov, has fashioned his film as a traditional WWII flick, with a Great Escapelike score by Alexandre Desplat and a sentimental kind of soldierly chumminess. Only this band of brothers is more like an assembly of academics. A handful of museum curators and art experts have been gathered by art historian Frank Stokes (Clooney) to investigate and retake the troves of artwork the Nazis have stolen for a mammoth German museum planned by Hitler. The platoon is ill-suited for war but bold in spirit: an art restorer (Matt Damon), an architect (Bill Murray), a sculptor (John Goodman), a British museum head (Hugh Bonneville), a theater producer (Bob Balaban) and a French painting instructor (Jean Dujardin). Some of the pairings are fitting: Clooney and Damon planning another heist (Oceans Thirteen); Dujardin and Goodman back on speaking terms (The Artist). In truth, more than 300 Allied servicemen and women worked in the Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives program in the final years of the war. They helped lead to the recovery of about 6 million objects (estimates vary). Most of the names in the film have been changed, and the mission has been made significantly more romantic. Cate Blanchett plays a reluctant-to-cooperate assistant curator from Paris Jeu de Paume museum. A book by real-life Rose Valland inspired John Frankenheimers 1964 film, The Train, with Burt Lancaster. It portrayed the French Resistance effort to derail a train of stolen art taken from the Jeu de Paume. With the cunning of sabotage and the soot of the train yard, The Train makes a more superior and grittier film. The Monuments Men is instead weighed down by dutifulness. It feels like its only a third act, lacking any buildup of tension or character development. When Stokes solemnly argues early in the film about risking life for the recovery of what he calls the foundation of modern society, the movie has presented its thesis statement, and settled any debate. Though deadly encounters follow, the nobility of the quest is unchallenged. With this film, Clooney (who enjoys a self-satisfying scene telling off a Nazi) has erected a stiff monument, a worthy if undramatic tribute to those its based on. One wishes the movie had arrived 11 years earlier. Maybe it would have raised enough awareness to take precautions ahead of the toppling of Saddam Hussein, when Baghdads Iraq museum was looted of thousands of antiquities. The Monuments Men, a Columbia Pictures release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for some images of war violence and historical smoking. Running time: 118 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four.

Review: Monuments Men a misstep for Clooney
Associated PressWASHINGTON When art historians saw Paris fall to the Nazis in World War II, they immediately realized Europes vast monuments, art, cathedrals and architecture were at risk and began mobilizing to protect such treasures. In Washington, the newly opened National Gallery of Art became the U.S. museum worlds epicenter for lobbying President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Allied forces in 1941 to prevent the destruction of Europes monuments. Their efforts would create a corps of U.S. and British soldiers who worked to protect cultural sites and recover looted art after the war. Now for the first time, photographs, maps, correspondence and records including lists of art amassed by Adolf Hitler and other Nazi leaders from the corps of soldiers known as monuments men are going on display at the National Gallery of Art, the Smithsonian Archives of American Art and the National Archives. At the same time, George Clooney, Matt Damon and Cate Blanchett tell the story in The Monuments Men movie opening Friday, drawing new attention to the history. Its a story straight out of the nations archives and art repositories from the records that real monuments men and women left behind. One of them was George Leslie Stout, an art conservator at the Fogg Museum in Boston, who drafted a plan for a special military team to protect Europes art from Allied bombings. He even enlisted in the Navy with hopes of seeing his plan through. Leaders at the National Gallery of Art pressed the case with justices of the Supreme Court and the president, and their efforts led to the creation of the U.S. Armys Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives Section. Shortly before D-Day, Gen. Dwight Eisenhower issued an order for every field commander to guard irreplaceable sites as Allied troops invaded the European mainland to defeat Germany. Inevitably, in the path of our advance will be found historical monuments and cultural centers which symbolize to the world all that we are fighting to preserve, Eisenhower said in 1944. It is the responsibility of every commander to protect and respect these symbols whenever possible. Surrounded by the destruction of war, the monuments unit mapped important sites to save and later turned to recovering and returning stolen artwork. Personal papers from Stout and other monuments men, including James Rorimer and Walker Hancock, were later acquired by the Archives of AmericanArt and the National Gallery. Filmmakers consulted the archives in making the movie, including some of the records now displayed, said Kate Haw, director of the Smithsonians archive. Rarely seen images now on view at the Smithsonians American Art Museum show a garden sculptureat the Palace of Versailles draped in camouflage netting for protection, the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany where the Nazis amassed stolen art and the rescue of Michelangelos 1504 sculpture Madonna and Child, which had been stolen from a church in Bruges, Belgium. Among the documents on display are the records of art historian Rose Valland who spied on the Nazis at the Paris museum where she worked and kept notes on plundered art, as well as the personal inventory of art looted for Nazi leader Hermann Goerings personal collection. One recently discovered Hitler Album of looted art also is displayed at the National Archives, while additional documents and archival photos go on display Feb. 11 at the National Gallery of Art. A permanent Monuments Men Experience is being developed at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans. Its scheduled to open in 2016. Examining the real records helps bring the story of the monuments men to life, said Maygene Daniels, chief of the National Gallerys archives. What were trying to recreate is what it was like to be a young officer trained in art history or archaeology who finds yourself in the military and has this amazingresponsibility of protecting great art, she said. It was an extraordinary moment in history. Sallys Valentine Tribute Show set for SundayCentral Ridge Community Center will present Sallys Valentine Tribute Show on Sunday.

Jim DavisPLAY IT BY EAR ONTHESCENE Foot-tapping February is just beginning Associated PressFairport High School alumnus Philip Seymour Hoffman was memorialized in the snow on the hill behind the high school on Monday, the day after he died in New York. The 46-year-old actor was found in his Manhattan apartment. Associated PressNEW YORK A large piece of stage backdrop autographed by the Beatles during their first live U.S. concert 50 years ago is headed to auction, where it could draw $800,000 to $1 million. Face caricatures accompany the signatures that the Fab Four penned between sets of their historic Ed Sullivan appearance on Feb. 9, 1964, which they opened with All My Loving in front of 700 screeching fans in the audience and 73 million television viewers. The current owner of the 4-footby-2-foot plastic wall section is Andy Geller, a longtime Beatles collector and television and film voice-over artist. It is being sold in New York City on April 26 through the Dallas-based auction house Heritage Auctions. A stagehand is responsible for getting the band members to sign the back of the wall section known as a hardwall traveler, which is rolled back and forth to reveal the next act. It was a spur-of-the-moment thing, 81-year-old Jerry Gort said in a telephone interview from his Calabasas, Calif., home. They came down from stage right from their dressing rooms, I gave them a marker and asked them to sign the wall. The band signed vertically from the bottom up: John Lennon first, then Paul McCartney, who scribbled Uncle Paul McCartney, followed by George Harris. Ringo Starr, shorter than the rest, couldnt reach the top so I put my arms around him and lifted him, said Gort, simultaneously putting his foot on the wall to keep it from opening until Ringo finished signing the piece. Gort said Ringo then made a mad dash to get to his drums and the band launched into I Saw Her Standing There and I Want to Hold Your Hand. The wall also contains the signature of other acts that followed later in the television season, notably from the Searchers, another British band, which signed The Searchers Were Here with Kilroy 4/5/64. At the end of the season, the wall was destined for the trash heap but was saved by another carpenter for a young disabled Beatles fan. Geller said he purchased the wall privately for more than $100,000 in 2002 without knowing its history. According to Gort, his grandson called him excitedly in 2006 to say he had read an article in Rolling Stone magazine that mentioned a guyin Los Angeles who owned the Beatlesautographed wall Gort so often talked about. The grandson located a phone number for Gellers agent and before long, Gort and Geller met. It turned out they lived only miles apart. Associated PressAutographs by The Beatles are seen on a 4-foot-by-2-foot section of a backdrop wall from the New York theater where The Ed Sullivan Show took place. Between the group's sets during their historic television appearance Feb. 9, 1964, the four Beatles penned their autographs and drew caricatures at the urging of a stagehand. Now that artifact, believed to be the largest Beatles autograph, is being sold through Heritage Auctions. Ed Sullivan Beatles item headed to auction Associated PressNEW YORK While three of four people arrested amid the investigation of Philip Seymour Hoffmans death were arraigned on drug charges, the New York theater community mourned the actor with a dimming of Broadways marquee lights and a candlelight vigil. The vigil Wednesday night was held outside the 90-seat home of the LAByrinth Theatre Company, where Hoffman had long been a member. And at 7:45 p.m., Broadways lights turned off for a minute. We come together tonight in a spirit of terrible mourning and incredible loss, the Rev. Jim Martin, a Jesuit priest and LAByrinth member, told the crowd of about 200 people who stood in a chilly drizzle. But we also come together to celebrate a remarkable life. Courage was his forte, always, said playwright and actor Eric Bogosian, a longtime LAByrinth collaborator. Phil set his bar on the highest rung, on a rung above the highest rung. He pushed himself relentlessly until finally his efforts virtually redefined the very endeavor we call acting. Thats what he wanted. He wanted to rock the world. As Broadway lamented, the criminal justice system quickly acted with arrests that came just days into the high-profile case, reflecting the attention and urgency it has attracted. At least one of those arrested during the probe into Hoffmans suspected fatal heroin overdose had the actors cellphone number, two law enforcement officials said Wednesday. Investigators zeroed in on the four after a tipster, responding to publicity about Hoffmans death, told police he had seen Hoffman at the lower Manhattan apartment building where they were arrested on Tuesday and he believed thats where Hoffman got the heroin, the officials said. In searches of two apartments in the building, police found hundreds of packets of heroin in one of them, according to a criminal complaint. But prosecutors declined to pursue charges against one of the four, saying there was no evidence that he had control of the drugs or the apartment in which they were found, and two of the others were charged only with a misdemeanor charge of possessing cocaine, not heroin. Only one, jazz musician Robert Vineberg, was facing a felony charge of heroin possession with intent to sell. Lawyers for the three people charged vigorously denied their clients had any role in Hoffmans death and suggested they were being swept up in a maelstrom of attention surrounding the actors demise. All three of the people charged were indicted within a day after their arrests, a somewhat unusual step, and were being held without bail. The two charged with cocaine possession, Juliana Luchkiw and Max Rosenblum, a couple who are neighbors of Vinebergs, were visibly dismayed when a judge denied them bail, though their lawyers hoped to revisit the issue Thursday. Investigators have determined that the Capote star made six ATM transactions for a total of $1,200 inside a supermarket near his home the day before his death, law enforcement officials have said. Investigators are examining a computer and two iPads found at the scene for clues and recovered syringes, a charred spoon and various prescription medications, including a blood pressure drug and a muscle relaxant, law enforcement officials have said. Some of the packets found in Hoffmans apartment were variously stamped with the ace of hearts and others with the ace of spades. Those found in the building where the arrests occurred had different brand names, including Black List and Panda, the officials said. Police were waiting for a cause of death for the Oscarwinning actor from the medical examiners office, which said on Wednesday that more tests were needed. Hoffman, 46, was found dead Sunday with a needle in his arm, and tests found heroin in samples from at least 50 packets in his apartment in Manhattans Greenwich Village, law enforcement officials have said. A private funeral for relatives and close friends of Hoffman is set for Friday, and a larger memorial service will be held later this month. Broadway mourns Hoffman as three face drug charges Associated PressWASHINGTON Flashback to a 1940s jazz club. A saxophonist performs on stage wearing his sunglasses at night. Im cool, he says, relaxed in the moment. Lester Young, the lead saxophonist in Count Basies orchestra and soul mate to Billie Holiday, was giving voice to what would become an American and global obsession for cool with a phrase rooted in jazz slang. But what does it mean to say someone is cool? Over the past five years, curators at the National Portrait Gallery set out to examine how that idea of cool has shaped American culture. A new exhibit opening Friday gives the concept an entertaining yet scholarly treatment with 100 photographs of people who defined cool as a word for rebellion, selfexpression, charisma, edge and mystery. American Cool traces the idea further back to the granddaddies of cool, Walt Whitman and Frederick Douglass, and unfolds through the generations, leading to Jay-Z, Johnny Depp and Madonna. These are the successful cultural rebels of American culture, said Joel Dinerstein, a professor and jazz scholar at Tulane University who co-curated the show and teaches a college course on the history of being cool. The exhibit idea was born out of the 2008 presidential election when the buzz was about a new type of political candidate who exuded a cool, relaxed intensity, appealing to a new generation, said co-curator Frank Goodyear III. What might seem like an arbitrary list of 100 celebrities was actually a muchdebated roster whittled down from 500 names, the curators said. They devised a fourpoint rubric to define cool on a national scale. To be included, a person had to have an original artistic vision with a signature style, represent cultural rebellion or transgression, have instant visual recognition, and have a recognized and lasting cultural legacy. Smithsonian explores cool from Whitman to Jay-Z Associated PressThis handout photo provided by the National Portrait Gallery, taken in 1956, shows Frank Sinatra, by Herman Leonard. Curators at the National Portrait Gallery want to know what it means to be cool, and have been studying the uniquely American concept of cool and how it became a global export.

NEWS NOTES news from the Homosassa area SUSANSTRAWBRIDGE Special to the ChronicleEllie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park is starting the year with the introduction of monthly themes focusing on our natural and cultural resources and opportunities in Florida State Parks. February will have two themes. The first will spotlight artists famous and current. This theme was selected to celebrate the famous American artist Winslow Homer, who visited Homosassa later in his life to enjoy the fishing opportunities and natural beauty of the Homosassa area. This inspired him to create 11 beautiful watercolors in February 1904. An exhibit of prints of Homers Florida and tropical watercolors is featured in the Florida Room at the parks Visitor Center. Keeping with the artists theme, the park will host two art shows in February. The first will be the Wildlife Park Arts & Crafts Show at the Visitor Center Saturday, Feb. 15. This show and sale will display the arts and crafts of members of the community. The show and sale will include paintings, photography, crafts and books. On the following weekend, Feb. 22 and 23, the artwork of members of the Citrus Watercolor Club will be exhibited with original paintings, prints, cards and more offered for sale. The club has 135 members. About 35 members will be exhibiting their work. The club will donate 20 percent of all sales to the Friends of Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. In February, the park will also promote many ways to get fit in Florida state parks. In addition to the parks monthly bird walks and ongoing tai chi classes, the park will introduce a series of four exercise/fitness classes on alternating Monday mornings in the Florida Room. These will be taught by Patti and Steve Griffith and will focus on improving balance, range of motion and strength.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT C8FRIDAY, FEBRUARY7, 2014 PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Alfred Adler, an Austrian psychiatrist who died in 1937, said, There is no such thing as talent. There is pressure. True, if you wish to be successful at the top level of anything, you must be able to handle the pressure. This applies even at the bridge table. But there is another form of pressure in bridge pre-emptive bids, which pressure the opponents by removing bidding space. Look at the South hand. After two passes, what would you open? In the first two positions, one heart would be a popular choice. But after two passes, the dynamic changes. North-Souths chances of making game have diminished. It is time to pressure West. Open three hearts! Or, if that is too rich for you, bid two hearts. Now look at the full deal. After a three-heart opening, West would make a takeout double and East would advance with three spades. This contract would go down after three rounds of hearts are played, but West would never pass with such a strong hand. He would carry his side into deeper waters. At the table, South opened one heart, West doubled, North responded one no-trump, East passed, South rebid two hearts, and this ended the auction when West very cautiously passed. The defense was excellent, though. West led the spade ace: three, six, queen. West, not fooled, continued with the spade king, and East dropped his nine, a suit-preference signal for diamonds (the higher-ranking of the other two side suits). West cashed his diamond ace, gave his partner a diamond ruff, got back on lead with the club ace, and gave East a second ruff for down one.

She can be rude and obnoxious, she talks back and curses, and she leaves her room an upside-down mess and is obsessed with her iPhone, constantly posting pictures of herself online and chatting with friends. We have another daughter five years younger. We were concerned she might model her behavior after her older sister, and so we set rules about cursing and using her cellphone. Our 14-year-old could not abide by the new rules, and after much fighting, she decided to move in with her grandparents, who are much more lenient. Shes been there for several weeks, and by all accounts, she is more responsible and respectful to her grandparents than she ever was with us, and they are happy to have her. Our home is a lot more peaceful now, too. It seems like a win-win-win situation, but it doesnt feel normal not to have our daughter living with us. And one time, she even said she doesnt consider us her parents anymore, but she still calls us when she needs something. Should my wife and I be concerned about this situation? Daughter Dilemma Dear Dilemma: No. Some teenagers are more difficult than others, and the relationship with parents is often harder for them to deal with. What your daughter says is less important than what she does. If her behavior has improved because she no longer feels she has to rebel against you, that is a good thing. We do recommend, however, that you keep interacting with her in a positive way and not only when she calls asking for something. While she is away, we hope you will examine your parenting methods and determine whether there is anything you could do differently to produce a better result. Both too lenient and too strict are not advisable. Your pediatrician can make recommendations, you can ask for books on parenting at your local library or bookstore, and you can also go online. Dear Annie: When my birthday, Mothers Day or Christmas roll around, family members always ask, What can I get you? You have everything. The gift that pleases me most is their time. A phone call or visit would make my day. Mark your calendar to call Dad or Mom or Grandma. They would be so happy. And heres the return gift: Seniors stay busy. Your children and grandchildren are not responsible for your entertainment. There are senior centers, churches and clubs that you can join. Or volunteer. Your children have jobs, families and responsibilities. Dont criticize them. They will ask for your opinion if they want it. And to each, remember to say I love you, especially if you havent said it for a long time. The first time may be hard, but oh, the wonderful feeling it will leave. Happy, Active and Much Loved Senior Dear Happy: You have given wise advice to all age groups, including the idea to consider the needs of others instead of your own. It certainly explains your signature. Thank you. Dear Annie: Please tell Perplexed in Pennsylvania not to worry that her friend keeps forgetting her birthday. Mine is on September 11th, and my brother, sister, aunt, nieces and nephews do not acknowledge it, probably because they arent sure how to celebrate my birthday when its also a day of such sadness. I keep in touch with all of them, and that is what matters. Happy in ConnecticutAnnies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
