SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER The effort by a community group to mechanically harvest Lyngbya from Kings Bay has hit another snag. Save Crystal River Inc. was issued a permit by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) on Wednesday to crank up its harvesters. But, according to SCR president Bob Mercer, the group got a call Thursday from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to stop everything until officials have a chance to review the permit. They called Mike Czerwinski (an area environmental consultant) and told him. They also want video of the harvester running with a bubbler bar on it, Mercer said. Mercer said he has not read all the conditions of the new permit yet, but knows that the harvester is not to in any way disturb the substrate of the bay bottom. Kings Bay is a designated Outstanding Florida Water and therefore has a very stringent regulatory permitting regime. Mercer said he was headed to Tampa on Friday to pick up turbidity screens that would be used in tandem with the harvester. Turbidity is the cloudiness that results when the water bottom is disturbed. He said his group also has in the works, at two different places, an efficient vacuum system that can pick up the Lyngbya and cause very minimal turbidity. Corps of Engineers wants to review permit before group can mechanically gather Lyngbya Quietly changed lives ChronicleAnnie Johnson grew up in Dunnellon, attending school before desegregation. She went on to get her masters degree from Columbia University and came back to the area to teach for the next 33 years, being one of the first black educators of the post-segregation era in the Citrus County School System. It was her desire to help feed those in need and to encourage them to socialize, however, that has left a lasting impression, with the Annie W. Johnson Senior and Family Service Center continuing to provide services to the community nearly a decade and a half after her death. NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerDUNNELLONSome people talk about doing great things. Others, simply and without fanfare, do them. The late Annie Williams Johnson was one of those who quietly changed the lives of those around her and continues to do so, nearly 14 years after her death in 2000. The Dunnellon-based outreach center with her name on the sign out front has fed and served thousands of people since she started it back in the late 1970s. She told the Chroniclein 1999 after being selected as an Eckerd 100 Woman for her efforts to assist the elderly, I wanted any name on the building but mine. She was out-voted. In 1976, she was feeding seniors from the community in her home, said Christine Avina, client coordinator at the Annie W. Johnson service center. More and more people started showing up at her door and it got to be too much, so she moved her program here. Here refers to the old Second Bethel Baptist Church in Dunnellon, built in 1888. The church building, located around the block from her home, had fallen into disrepair and was no longer used for Sunday services. Johnson saw potential for its use and, with financial assistance from the Marion/Citrus Mental Health Group, the building was deeded over in 1986. After spearheading a community effort to restore, remodel and renew the former house of worship, Johnson turned it into a place where seniors could come every day, receive a meal and socialize with each other. Johnson told the Ocala Star Bannerin 1991 that in the early days during the winter, the wind would whistle through the walls and volunteers had to chop ice out of the toilets. But that didnt stop Johnson from her mission to feed people. Annie Johnson spent most of her life in Dunnellon. The oldest of three children born to Joe and Olivia Pelham Williams, she attended school at the all-black Hard Rock school that was held at the church and high school Booker T. Washington School in Inverness. She went on to attend Florida Normal College in St. Augustine and Columbia University in New York where she earned a masters degree in education. CHRISVANORMER Staff writerINVERNESS Road resurfacing through levying a fee got a push at a recent county commission meeting, but the plan wont be presented until later this month or possibly April. Commissioner Joe Meek requested board direction on setting up a system for a municipal service benefit unit (MSBU) for road resurfacing at the Feb. 25 meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). One of the catalysts besides us talking about it for over a year now is that I spoke to the Citrus Springs Civic Association, Meek said. Obviously, a major issue in that community as it is throughout the county is road resurfacing. In May 2013, the BOCC approved the concept of creating an MSBU for road resurfacing projects, but not as a countywide flat fee as with the $54 MSBU for fire protection services. Individual neighborhoods would have to petition for road resurfacing and share the cost through establishing an MSBU district. The original concept was unanimously approved by commissioners. We need to move forward on this initiative, Meek continued. The MSBU would be voluntary, Meek said, as put forward in the original discussion. To go forward with road resurfacing, a neighborhood would need percent plus one of the improved properties on a particular road to want the resurfacing and residents would pay for it in the form of an MSBU, a shared fee on the county tax bill. Meek said Marion County has a similar system. Kids: Mom tried to kill us Woman who drove van into ocean charged with attempted murder Associated PressORLANDO After she drove her minivan into the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean, authorities said a pregnant South Carolina woman tried to call off bystanders hustling to rescue her three screaming children from the water that was rushing in through the windows. Ebony Wilkerson, who was charged with attempted murder Friday, said everyone was OK and left the van with her children inside, an affidavit said. The bystanders and beach safety officers, paying no mind to her urgings, pulled the two girls and a boy, ages 3, 9 and 10, through the windows Tuesday on Daytona Beach. Later, Wilkerson denied trying to hurt her children, telling investigators she was driving too close to the water, and the waves pulled her in, according to the charging affidavit. Her children told investigators another story. Mom tried to kill us, they told detectives, according to a charging affidavit. Mom is crazy. Volusia County Sheriff Ben Johnson said the 32-year-old Wilkerson has been charged with three counts each of first-degree attempted murder and child abuse. She was in the custody of the sheriffs office after being hospitalized for a mental evaluation since dunking the van into the surf. The children told authorities they had come to Florida from South Carolina only three days earlier to escape their father. They described a history of violence between their father and The late Annie Williams Johnson worked without fanfare and Ebony Wildersonsaid she brought her children from South Carolina to escape their father.

The sister, Jessica Harrell, didnt return a phone call from The Associated Press, but she expressed her concerns about Wilkersons mental health to a 911 dispatcher only hours before the minivan ended up in the ocean. The children said that while driving south on the beach, their mother pointed at the ocean, locked the doors, rolled up the electric windows and then jerked the steering wheel, sending the minivan into the waves. One of the children asked her what she was doing, and she said: I am keeping us all safe, according to the affidavit. The boy tried to wrestle the steering wheel away from Wilkerson. She told them to close their eyes and go to sleep. She was trying to take them to a better place, Johnson said at a news conference. A child also lowered the windows and the siblings yelled for help, attracting the bystanders. Ive got to do this, Wilkerson told bystander Stacy Robinson as he attempted to intervene, according to the affidavit. One of the rescuers, Tim Tesseneer, said Wilkersons eyes were wide open and she looked possessed. Wilkerson tried to prevent a beach safety officer from entering the vehicle to rescue the toddler who was the last to be removed from the minivan, Tesseneer told detectives. The children are with the Department of Children and Families. Harrell told the dispatcher she had tried to take her sister to a hospital the previous day but Wilkerson had checked herself out. She said Wilkerson had been abused by her husband and that police should check on her. Shes getting a little bit better, but shes still not all there, Harrell said. Wilkerson was talking about Jesus and how there are demons in my house and how Im trying to control her, but Im trying to keep them safe, Harrell told the dispatcher. Harrell said she had taken Wilkersons car keys away, but her sister had found another set and driven off with the children. After the call to dispatch, Daytona Beach officers stopped Wilkersons black Honda Odyssey and she expressed fear that her husband would be coming to Florida to harm her and her children. The children were sitting quietly, smiling, and showed no signs of distress, the police report said. It was clear during my conversation that Wilkerson was suffering from some form of mental illness, but she was lucid and did not provide any signs that she met Baker Act requirements, the Daytona Beach police officer said in the report. The Florida Mental Health Act, commonly known as the Baker Act, allows authorities to involuntarily take people into custody if they seem to be a threat to themselves. CHARGEDContinued from Page A1 Ben JohnsonVolusia County sheriff. Its been a year since SCRs harvesters used for picking up Lyngbya from Kings Bays bottom fell silent following controversy over their use. Patrick Rose, executive director of Save the Manatee Club, expressed concerns in March of 2013 when he said he witnessed what amounted to dredging by an SCR harvester operator. Rose challenged the groups permit, saying it ought to apply for a dredging permit if it wanted to operate in that manner. He also claimed the excessive turbidity he witnessed was caused by the machine getting to the substrate. In eventual talks with SCR, Rose said he would relent in his objections only when SCR agrees to a monitoring regime and installing turbidity screens during harvests. Rose claims when turbidity happens, all kinds of algae including bad ones (phytoplankton) can float away to other parts of the bay and cause algal blooms. He also insisted the cloudiness could blind the operators from seeing a manatee in their path. Save Crystal River withdrew its permit and decided to apply for this new permit and brought in Czerwinski as a consultant on the project to help monitor harvester activity in the bay and give advice on scientific matters. Friday, Rose applauded the Corps decision to step in to assess the permit. It is absolutely the right thing to do, Rose said. He said the Corps is just trying to make sure SCR will follow all the conditions of the permit and implement it properly. If they (SCR) were to follow our settlement agreement, I dont see any problems with it at all, Rose added. He said after the permit clears the Corps scrutiny, he would take SCR up on a prior invitation to visit while the harvester is in operation. As long as they follow all the conditions of the permit, I wish them success. After all, we all want what is best for the bay.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ LYNGBYAContinued from Page A1 Johnson returned to her hometown and taught kindergarten and elementary students for 33 years, and was among the first black teachers in Citrus County to teach in a white school after desegregation. She retired from teaching in 1976, but not from public service. All along, whenever someone came to her door, she would invite them in for a sandwich or a plate of whatever she had cooking on the stove. And for those who couldnt come to her, she and her friends, such as the late Ernestine Thomas, would go to them, bringing baskets of food to the homebound all over town. Once she retired, Johnson was able to feed more people who were drawn by her hospitality. When the numbers grew larger than her little house could hold, she opened the Annie W. Johnson Senior Service Center. Prior to that, Johnson began teaching adults to read as something to do to stay busy. As the reading class grew, people started bringing their lunches and staying to socialize. Johnson saw that people were hungry for more than food, that they were lonely and thrived when they came together. She was not big about being in the spotlight, Christine Avina said. She had a job to do. In the beginning, funding for the center came from donations and fundraisers. Then came the This n That thrift store that was located on U.S. 41 just south of the Citrus/Marion county line. Four years ago, the thrift store moved to Pennsylvania Avenue. Around the time the Annie Johnson Senior Services Center opened in the church building, Johnson turned to Citrus County government for funding, and the county counted the center among its congregate dining sites until last year, when funding for the Dunnellon center was cut. In 1990, the center became an agency of both Citrus and Marion County United Way. The center named for the late Annie Johnson has evolved over the years. It began as a place for seniors to socialize and share a daily meal together. Avina said about 2007 or 2008 the name was changed to the Annie W. Johnson Senior and Family Service Center because their outreach had grown to include younger people and families. Today its called the Annie W. Johnson Service Center and is primarily a United Way agency that helps people with their utility bills. The center still has a food pantry, Annies Special Care, which is funded through donations. Annie Williams Johnson grew up believing no one should ever be hungry or alone. She was one of the charter members of Citrus United Basket in 1977. She shared what she had with others and depended on her Christian faith and the generosity of others to meet the needs of the people who came to the center. Her accomplishments and honors include: 1991 Citrus County Citizen of the Year, Service Above Self Award from the Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerce and the Service to Mankind Award from the Dunnellon Sertoma Club. In 1999, she was selected as an Eckerd 100 Woman for her volunteer service to her community. The NAACP in Atlanta also recognized her good works. I enjoy what I have done, Johnson told theChroniclein 1999. I have been wonderfully blessed.

Around the STATE Driver backs van into West Citrus Community CenterHOMOSASSA The West Citrus Community Center, 8940 W. Veterans Drive, was the scene of an accident late Friday morning. According to sheriffs office spokeswoman Lindsay Blair, a county volunteer was delivering food to the center and accidently hit the gas instead of the brake when backing up to deliver supplies. The van went through a wall, breaking a window and two double doors. Fire Services and county Building Division personnel responded to the scene, securing the building and deeming it safe occupy. The driver of the van was safe but shaken by the incident, Blair said.FSU provost appointed interim university presidentTALLAHASSEE Florida State University is tapping Garnett Stokes as the schools interim president. FSU trustees on Friday placed Stokes in charge while the school searches for a replacement to outgoing President Eric Barron. Barron is leaving FSU to become president of Penn State University. Stokes has been FSU provost and executive vice president for academic affairs since 2011. She will take over as interim president in April. There is already widespread speculation about potential contenders for the permanent job. Allan Bense, chairman of the FSU board of trustees, insisted on Friday that there is no frontrunner for the job. The search committee, however, includes many politically connected members, including a former state Senate president, a state legislator and former FSU quarterback Drew Weatherford.

STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the ChronicleIt was a night of country glamour, fellowship and celebration. Three local youths Caitlyn Tymowczak, left, Nathan Cobb, center, and Michelle Beno were honored Thursday at the 13th annual Steak and Steak Dinner at M&B Dairy Farm in Lecanto for their leadership in the community. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County hosts its signature event annually to recognize three students who have been nominated by their individual clubs Evelyn Waters club in Inverness, Robert Halleen club in Homosassa and Central Ridge club in Beverly Hills. Boys & Girls Clubs is a national organization with local chapters that provides beforeand after-school enrichment activities for youths in the community. Each of the three clubs chose a Youth of the Month. Executive Director Cindi Fein said that, out of each of these groups, one representative is chosen to attend the annual Steak and Steak Dinner. Based on his essay, Cobb was chosen as the Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus Countys Youth of the Year. In addition to the celebration, area businesses donated various items for the silent and live auctions. Kiwanis of Inverness donated and cooked all of the steaks and baked potatoes. All proceeds will be utilized for the efforts of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County. PATFAHERTY Staff writerAfter nearly four months of negotiations, Duke Energy has a new contract with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW). Neither side has responded to requests to comment on the threeyear contract, but the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, which followed the negotiation process, confirmed the agreement was ratified by union membership Feb.28. The contract with Local 433 covers operations, maintenance, chemistry and health physics workers at the Crystal River nuclear power plant (CR3) in addition to other Duke facilities. NRC spokesman Neil Sheehan said the agency had been keeping close tabs on the negotiations and had reviewed the companys strike contingency plan in the event a walkout had occurred. Negotiations began Oct.15 on a new contract to cover the unions approximately 1,800 members who work for Duke Energy in Florida. The companys total workforce union and nonunion was approximately 4,000 at the close of 2013. Talks had bogged down late last year and a previously agreed upon 60-day contract extension was implemented to provide additional time to try and negotiate a mutually acceptable settlement. Negotiations were completed Feb.12. On March1, Local 433 announced the settlement and ratification vote on its website and Facebook page. The contract includes a 3percent retroactive wage increase and vacation enhancement package. New contract language revises some job titles and reflects the transitioning into the decommissioning process for CR3. It also covers staffing and training at the proposed Citrus County natural gas turbine plant scheduled to be operational in 2018. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty@ ChronicleAt 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 11, the Manatee EcoTourism Association of Citrus County (META) will host a free seminar conducted by Jim Reid and Susan Butler titled Wild Manatee Movements and Habitat Studies in the Big Bend. The U.S. Geological Survey/Sirenia Project has utilized radio tracking to study manatees at Crystal River since the late 1970s. Understanding the details of manatee movements is valuable for identifying critical resources and manatee habitat-use patterns in the Big Bend region. Jim Reid and Susan Butler will describe the evolution of tagging/ tracking methodologies, present recent findings on manatee activity patterns and discuss issues related to managing the species in the region. This is important not only for commercial boat captains but for anyone who boats and paddles around Citrus County to enable them to understand what the radio tag transmitters on the manatees mean, the information gained from them and the importance of leaving those manatees and their tracking gear undisturbed. The seminar will last between an hour and 90 minutes, including a question-and-answer discussion. The event will be in the Palm Room at the Plantation on Crystal River. There is no fee and the meeting is open to the public. META guides/captains in attendance will be credited toward continuing education in the guides certification program.

From staff reports From theCAPITAL House bill deals with trauma centersA House subcommittee is expected Tuesday to take up a bill (PCB HIS 14-01) that could ensure the continued operation of disputed trauma centers in Manatee, Pasco and Marion counties. The bill, filed by the Health Innovation Subcommittee, would allow trauma centers to remain open if they have operated for a 12-month period and if they submit an application for a site visit by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma. The bill does not name any trauma centers, but it comes after nearly three years of legal battles in the hospital industry. Pending cases threaten the continued operation of trauma centers at Blake Medical Center in Manatee County, Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point in Pasco County and Ocala Regional Medical Center in Marion County. Elections package drawing fireSenate Ethics and Elections Committee Chairman Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, has put together an elections measure that is sure to please some Democrats while angering others, as well Latvalas own elections chief. The proposal (SB 7068) would ban elections supervisors from using satellite drop-off locations for absentee ballots during early voting, something that led to a tiff last year between Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark and Gov. Rick Scotts administration. Clark and some other supervisors use drop-off sites at libraries or post offices. Just before a special election in Pinellas County last year, Secretary of State Ken Detzner told the supervisors they werent allowed to use the satellite sites, but Clark defied him. Latvalas election-year proposal would allow absentee ballots to be dropped off during the early voting period at supervisors offices or inside early voting sites. Latvalas bill would also require the state to create an online voterregistration system, which Democrats support. The Ethics and Elections Committee is scheduled to take up the bill Monday. Rep. Mark Pafford, DWest Palm Beach, has filed a stand-alone measure (HB 1307) that mirrors Sotos amendments.FSU backs in-state tuition for some Outgoing Florida State University President Eric Barron said Friday that the school supports measures in the Legislature to allow certain undocumented students to be eligible for instate tuition. A proposal (HB 851) that would exempt from out-ofstate tuition students who attend Florida high schools for three consecutive years, as well as military veterans who reside in the state while enrolled in college, has already received support from two House committees.

MEADOWCREST BLVD., CRYSTAL RIVER, FL 34429 PERIODICAL POSTAGE PAID AT INVERNESS, FL SECOND CLASS PERMIT #114280 CITRUSCOUNTY Florida' s BestCommunity Newspaper Serving Floridas Best Community ENTERTAINMENT Associated PressLOS ANGELES Astronomer Carl Sagan become Mr. Science for a generation after his 1980 series, Cosmos, took audiences on a groundbreaking TV journey through the universe. Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, host of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, the 21st-century edition debuting Sunday, has a head start with a Twitter following of 1.7 million thats just edged by the starry likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Cee Lo Green. Tyson, a go-to expert for news reports on Earththreatening asteroids and other science developments, said his public profile frees him from comparisons to Sagan. The educator and author with a gift for conveying the wonder of discovery died in 1996 at age 62. If I didnt have a following, I think people would say, How is he going to fill Carl Sagans shoes? How is he going to pronounce billion? said Tyson, referring to the billions and billions of stars phrase made famous by Sagan in Cosmos (although purists insist Sagan said upon, not and). Sagan was the presenter for the first series, Tyson said, and hes the presenter for the second. He gamely accepts an analogy, one hes clearly heard before, to the string of actors who have starred in the Doctor Who title role. Each contributes something different, but youre still with the franchise at the end of the day, he said. The new version begins its 13-episode run at 9p.m. Sunday on Fox and other Fox Networks Group channels including National Geographic, FX and Nat Geo Mundo. Viewers have a second chance to catch each episode at 10p.m. Monday on National Geographic, with added behind-the-scenes and other bonus footage. It will air in other countries on Fox channels and National Geographic Channels International. Tyson, 55, brings to the program his distinguished credentials as director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History in New York and an author whose works include Space Chronicles and The Pluto Files. Hes the perfect modern media scientist: tall and goodlooking, with a deep voice that he uses to charismatic and authoritative effect. Proving hes a stickler for accuracy, Tyson took Gravity to task for scientific gaffes and prompted a flurry of coverage ranging from Hollywood trade papers to geek-favored websites. Among the more lighthearted of his Mysteries of #Gravity tweets: Why Bullocks hair, in otherwise convincing zero-G scenes, did not float freely on her head. Associated PressAstrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson hosts the television show Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, premiering at 9 p.m. Sunday on Fox and simultaneously across multiple U.S. Fox networks. The series will explore how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time.A4SATURDAY, MARCH8, 2014 CODE RED WEATHER SIGNUP To register for the Citrus County Sheriffs Offices Code RED weather program, visit and click on the Emergency Management menu item.

The annual event of appreciation was attended by the top brass of the sheriffs office, including members of fire rescue and their families. Sheriff Jeff Dawsy and Capt. Elena Vitt acted as emcees during the event. When you hear what these men and women did and the help of the community, youve got to feel good ..., Dawsy said in his closing remarks. I have been in law enforcement longer than a lot of these people have been alive, he quipped. But I have to tell you, this is the finest group of people I have ever surrounded myself with. And for that, I thank you ... And I pledge to you and to your loved ones that you are a priority to this organization and to this community, Dawsy added. Dawsy also vowed to protect and honor his agency personnel through the next two-and-a-half years to the end of his final term as sheriff. Dawsy has said he plans to step down after his current term, which began following his victory at the polls in 2012.Certificate of Appreciation Christopher Lawson, Julie Shutt Home Depot manager and assistant manager.

K9 Winnie showed a great deal of interest in a particular area and detectives later located the woman not too far from there. The woman was disoriented, too weak to call for help, dehydrated, and suffering from hypothermia. If not for the efforts of Linda Boles and K9 Winnie, detectives may not have re-searched the area. Unit Citation of Excellence Communications Heather Silver, Victoria Carbonara, Dwane Gannon, Amanda Dixon, Juli Payne, Carolyn Coughlin, Rita Lepinskie, Caren Lottering, Maria Sitterson. Easter Sunday, March31, 2013, was an exceptionally busy day, including a homicide, traffic crash and suicidal subject. Code RED messages were issued and numerous contacts were made (medical examiner, wreckers, hostage negotiators). Every task was handled flawlessly. The day started with the homicide, which required intense coordination, including moving units to set up a perimeter, calling the medical examiner, arranging for a wrecker, sending out a Code RED and more. At the same time, Communications received a call in reference to the suicidal subject who was holding a gun to his chest. Communication officers had to issue another Code Red, calling out hostage negotiators and K9 units and handled other important details. A traffic crash involving a motorcycle then occurred, requiring coordination of two helicopter medevacs and shutting down State Road 44. Everyone on this squad went into overdrive to make sure that every single task was handled flawlessly. Unit Citation of Excellence Fire Station 3 Thomas Fletcher, Andrew Meaders, Kevin Pappadouplos, Lawrence White, Michael Williams Jr., Robert Knoll All of these firefighters worked together as a team designing and constructing the interior of the Agency Hazmat Trailer, spending personal time working on it. By doing so they saved the agency a significant amount of money. They volunteered to take on the task and worked diligently to complete it over the course of one month. It is the only Hazmat trailer in Citrus County and these men should be proud of their contribution. Unit Citation of Excellence T.I.U.

Tiger exhibit opens at Jacksonville Zoo Associated PressJACKSONVILLE A new, $9.5 million tiger exhibit is set to open Saturday at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens. The Land of the Tiger exhibit will feature five tigers a pair of rare Sumatran tigers and three Malayan tiger brothers from the Palm Beach Zoo. Zoo officials said the exhibit is the most significant addition to the facility since the Range of the Jaguar opened in 2004. All the things that we did with the jaguar exhibit the theming, the special views, the underwater viewing, the noseto-nose experience through glass weve done for the tiger exhibit, the zoos executive director Tony Vecchio told The Florida TimesUnion. But weve also given the animals more freedom and choices as they roam. Vecchio said the zoo hasnt had its own tigers in more than 20 years. Tigers, he said, have been the most requested animal in the 4 1/2 years hes been with the zoo. People dont ask if we have them, but where they are, Vecchio said. They really are iconic. The 2.5-acre exhibit is the second phase of the zoos Asia Precinct expansion, which began in 2009 with the Asian Bamboo gardens and the Komodo Dragon Exhibit. Construction of the Land of the Tigers began last April, said Dan Maloney, the zoos deputy director of conservation and education. In addition to the tigers, the new exhibit will feature three Visayan warty pigs, a pair of babirusa pigs, two Asian smallclawed otters, two wrinkled hornbills and a pair of wreathed hornbills. There will also be dozens of species of Asian plants in the exhibit. Bob Chabot, the zoos director of horticulture and facilities, said the list of plants includes several varieties of bamboo, Japanese blueberry trees, banana trees, ginger plants, ribbon and fan palms, loquats, and grasses and ferns. The overall goal, he said, is to help provide a tropical, Southeast Asian feeling to the landscape. Vecchio said the zoos next big project will involve giant reptiles.


In addition to sharing the cost among residents in an MSBU district, the cost could be offset by using gas tax revenue. This would be voluntary, Meek said. Weve discussed it before with regards to paying down that cost by the gas tax dollars, so instead of just those gas tax dollars, whatever that amount is going toward road resurfacing, we can leverage those dollars to go for this voluntary road issue. Meek asked County Administrator Brad Thorpe to start the process and bring back a program for board members vote. Commission Chairman John JJ Kenney said hed recently ridden his motorcycle in Citrus Springs. Weve got a lot of roads like that, Kenney said. I would support the fact that we take a look at the voluntary resurfacing. Its for the good of our community and safety of our community. Commissioner Dennis Damato instructed Thorpe to bring back examples from Marion County where he said the system works. You have to introduce this concept to the public because it will help solve a lot of issues, Damato said. Its important for people to know and understand the process, Damato continued. We are falling behind on the schedule to get this done, Thorpe agreed. Its a massive job trying to rank, categorize, come up with all of the ARs (administrative regulations), and the procedures for the people to do that. Im suggesting weve got to add staff or weve got to get somebody a consultant on board to help push this process forward. Thorpe said another challenge is to make the process simple enough to be useable while meeting legal requirements. Damato suggested that the resurfacing process be made as simple as the process for adding streetlights in a subdivision. Thorpe stated that he could bring back options for the board to consider. By a 4-1 vote, the board instructed Thorpe to bring back a plan for voluntary road resurfacing. Meek made the motion, seconded by Damato. Commissioner Scott Adams cast the vote against the motion. He said he thought the subject had been voted on last year.Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicle Juan deTorres, 95Juan Ramon deTorres, 95, died March 6, 2014.

MSBUContinued from Page A1 Obama promotes education agenda at Miami school Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama is beginning a new effort to help students take the first step toward getting a college education. During a visit to a Miami high school on Friday, Obama announced a new initiative to help students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, form. The application is required for students to receive federal student aid, like Pell Grants, or federal student loans. States, colleges and universities also award student financial aid based on the form. Yet more than 1 million high school seniors annually do not file a FAFSA, the Education Department said. As part of an effort to broaden access to education, Obama announced that, starting in the fall, the Education Department will begin working with states to identify students who have not completed the form. States can then use that information to help schools and school districts work with these students on filling out the form. The White House notes that Obamas proposal for the budget year that starts in the fall asks Congress for more than $750 million for various education programs. His request includes $300 million for a new competition to encourage states and school districts close achievement and opportunity gaps, and $200 million to help teachers introduce digital technologies in their classrooms and lessons. Obama also wants $100 million for a fund to support strategies that help make college more affordable. Since 2009, the administration has simplified online filing of the FAFSA form by reducing the number of questions, using intuitive software that lets students and parents skip irrelevant questions and allowing them to download financial information straight into the form from the IRS website. Education Secretary Arne Duncan recently said the changes have cut the filing time to less than 30 minutes, down from more than an hour for the 2009-2010 school year. Obama said education can help the country succeed economically because it will provide students with the skills they need to compete in the 21st century. Education, and expanding access to it, is part of Obamas agenda to provide opportunity for all, along with creating jobs, training people to fill those jobs and raising the minimum wage. Michelle Obama joined her husband on the visit to Coral Reef High School. The president and first lady have been making an effort to encourage young people, particularly minorities, to pursue a college education, and they have been using their personal stories of how education helped them get where they are today. Both are Ivy Leagueeducated. After the event, Obama planned to spend the weekend in the Florida Keys, though that could change depending on developments in Ukraine. The White House has not said where Obama will stay on his weekend escape from Washingtons frigid weather, but local media reports said he, his wife and their two daughters would be staying at the Ocean Reef Club, a private membership club set on 2,500 tropical acres on the northern tip of Key Largo. For avid golfers like Obama, the property boasts two championship 18-hole golf courses. The club also has a swimming lagoon, tennis courts, a spa and fitness center, a private airport and more than a dozen restaurants among its varied offerings.

Iditarod draws mushers from around the globe Associated PressANCHORAGE, Alaska If you thought mushing was limited to Americans and Canadians, youd be wrong. This years Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race features a Swede and five Norwegians, including Robert Sorlie, the 2003 and 2005 champion. A contingent of racing officials from Norway and Sweden visited Alaska last summer to look for ways to promote the sport even more in their countries. Mushing also isnt limited to Arctic nations. This years field includes mushers from Australia, New Zealand and even Jamaica. But of all those entries, its the Norwegians who are causing the most worry for the North Americans. Thats because theyre tough, theyre experienced, and theyve been training in different conditions. They are a wild card, and I think that theyll be in there, and I think they will be players, veteran Alaska musher DeeDee Jonrowe said before the race. Jonrowe was among the first mushers forced to drop out because of poor trail conditions shortly after the race started Sunday in Willow. She noted the Norwegians have been training in fluffy, deep snow, while Alaska mushers had hardpacked trails. That will either be a real advantage or perhaps a disadvantage for them, Jonrowe said. Defending champion Mitch Seavey said this could be the year any number of mushers wins the race, but hes keeping an eye on Sorlie, who is competing in his fifth Alaska race. He knows how to win the Iditarod, Seavey said. Sorlie said the Iditarod is the world standard, and thats what has drawn so many Norwegians to Alaska this year. The biggest thing you can do as a long-distance musher is do this race, said Sorlie, of Hurdal, Norway. Besides his two wins, the 56-year-old competed as a rookie in 2002, when he finished in ninth place. His other finish was in 2007, when he came in 12th. He was in fifth place at mid-day Friday.

Fourth-quarter net income blew away Wall Street expectations for the headphones maker, and so did the companys revenue. Comparable-store sales jumped more than 5 percent and the shoe and apparel store topped Wall Streets profit expectations. The miner was downgraded to sell from neutral at Goldman Sachs, which sees more tough times ahead for the coal industry. Losses associated with the closeout retailers exit from Canada were not as bad as most industry watchers had expected. Comparable-store sales plunged 7 percent in February, catching off guard industry analysts who were looking for a slight gain. The Standard & Poors 500 index closed at a record high Friday, while other major stock indexes ended mixed.

Interestrates US stocks muddled as Ukraine tensions fester Associated PressNEW YORK One positive report on the economy was not enough to make investors more confident. The stock market ended mixed Friday after a day of muddled trading. Among the three main U.S. stock indexes, one edged higher, one closed little changed and the other closed lower. Investors focused on the tensions in Ukraine, where the region of Crimea was preparing for a referendum on whether to split away and become part of Russia. It was enough of a reason to sell into the weekend and to offset optimism over a pickup in hiring by U.S. employers last month. The Labor Department said companies created 175,000 jobs last month, easily topping economists forecasts. While encouraging, investors didnt see the February report as part of a broader trend. December and January job figures were mediocre, and the harsh winter weather has closed factories, cut into auto sales, and caused existing-home sales to plummet for the last three months. People are hoping and praying that the recent slowness was weatherrelated, and while this report gave people a little bit of hope that is the case, it is still too early to tell, said Krishna Memani, chief investment officer of OppenheimerFunds. The Standard & Poors 500 index closed roughly flat, up a point, or 0.05 percent, to 1,878.04. The Dow Jones rose 30.83 points, or 0.2 percent, to 16,452.72 and the Nasdaq composite lost 15.90 points, or 0.4 percent, to 4,336.22. On the whole, the overall tone of the market was slightly negative. Three stocks fell for every two that rose on the New York Stock Exchange. Of the 10 industry sectors in the S&P 500 index, six fell. Biotechnology and health care stocks were among the biggest decliners. Biogen Idec fell roughly 4 percent and Amgen fell 2 percent. The Nasdaq composite index is more heavily weighted to biotechnology and specialty pharmaceutical companies, which is part of the reason the index fell even though the Dow and S&P 500 rose. MasterCard, Visa plan group focused on securityNEW YORK Visa and MasterCard are forming a group intended to help the retail and banking industries come together on more secure credit card payments. Credit card breaches at Neiman Marcus, Target and other retailers have put a spotlight on the weak spots in the security of credit card payments. Visa and MasterCard, which run the networks that carry the payments, said Friday that the new group will include banks, retailers, the makers of credit card readers and others with an interest in credit card security.Government orders Graco to explain recallDETROIT The federal governments road safety watchdog is ordering child seat maker Graco to explain why it didnt include 1.8 million infant seats in a recent recall for faulty buckles. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Friday that Graco has until March 20 to explain why last months recall of 3.8 million child seats didnt include infant seats, which have the same buckles that can get stuck as the child seats. Graco Childrens Products Inc. of Atlanta, a division of Newell Rubbermaid, said it will comply with the request. The February recall covered 11 models of child seats made from 2009 through 2013 by Graco Childrens Products. Its the fourthlargest child seat recall in U.S. history, according to NHTSA.Unemployment rate up for men and college gradsThe U.S. unemployment rate edged up to 6.7 percent in February as men and college graduates struggled to find work, according to the Labor Department report issued Friday. The report found that more than 160,000 men joined the ranks of the unemployed. That raised their unemployment rate to 6.4 percent from 6.2 percent, with black men being hit particularly hard.

Man said to create bitcoin denies it Associated PressLOS ANGELES Dorian Prentice Satoshi Nakamoto said Thursday that he is not the creator of bitcoin, adding further mystery to the story of how the worlds most popular digital currency came to be. The denial came after Newsweek published a 4,500-word cover story claiming Nakamoto is the person who wrote the computer code underpinnings of bitcoin. In an exclusive two-hour interview with The Associated Press, Nakamoto, 64, denied he had anything to do with it and said he had never heard of bitcoin until his son told him he had been contacted by a Newsweek reporter three weeks ago. Nakamoto acknowledged that many of the details in Newsweeks report are correct, including that he once worked for a defense contractor, and that his given name at birth was Satoshi. But he strongly disputed the magazines assertion that he is the face behind bitcoin. I got nothing to do with it, he said, repeatedly. Newsweek stands by its story, which kicked off the relaunch of its print edition after 15 months and reorganization under new ownership. Since bitcoins birth in 2009, the currencys creator has remained a mystery. The person or people behind the digital currencys inception have been known only as Satoshi Nakamoto, which many observers believed to be a pseudonym. Bitcoin has become increasingly popular among tech enthusiasts, libertarians and risk-seeking investors because it allows people to make one-to-one transactions, buy goods and services and exchange money across borders without involving banks, credit card issuers or other third parties. Criminals like bitcoin for the same reasons. For various technical reasons, its hard to know just how many people worldwide own bitcoins, but the currency attracted outsize media attention and the fascination of millions as an increasing number of large retailers such as began to accept it. Speculative investors have jumped into the bitcoin fray, too, sending the currencys value fluctuating wildly in recent months. In December, the value of a single bitcoin hit an all-time high of $1,200. It was around $665 on Thursday, according to the website Bloggers have speculated that bitcoins creator is worth hundreds of millions of dollars in bitcoin. After Newsweek posted the story on its website early Thursday, Nakamoto said his home was bombarded by phone calls. By mid-morning, a dozen reporters were waiting outside the modest two-story home on the residential street in Temple City, Calif., where he lives. He emerged shortly after noon saying he wanted to speak with one reporter only and asked for a free lunch. During a car ride and then later over sushi lunch at the AP bureau in downtown Los Angeles, Nakamoto spoke at length about his life, career and family, addressing many of the assertions in Newsweeks piece. He also said a key portion of the piece where he is quoted telling the reporter on his doorstep before two police officers, I am no longer involved in that and I cannot discuss it was misunderstood. Newsweek writer Leah McGrath Goodman, who spent two months researching the story, told the AP: I stand completely by my exchange with Mr. Nakamoto. There was no confusion whatsoever about the context of our conversation and his acknowledgment of his involvement in bitcoin. Associated PressDorian S. Nakamoto, the man that Newsweek claims is the founder of Bitcoin, denies he had anything to do with it and said he had never even heard of the digital currency until his son told him he had been contacted by a reporter three weeks ago.


OPINION Page A8SATURDAY, MARCH 8, 2014 Program gives kids head start on lifeHead Start has been operating in Citrus County for more than 20 years. There are classes in Crystal River, Floral City, Inverness and Hernando. Even with its many successes, the Head Start programs remain a mystery to many young Citrus County families. Head Starts (3 to 5 years) and Early Head Starts (0 to 3 years) enrollments are based on income as well as other life factors. This makes them programs serving those families facing the biggest of lifes challenges in our society. The Head Start programs are not only for the child, but involve the whole family. The benefits are numerous and ongoing. Many children from these families would struggle during their first years of public school. Children who participate in the Head Start programs begin kindergarten at national norms in early math and vocabulary knowledge. Head Start programs have a positive impact on pre-reading, pre-writing, vocabulary and literary skills. Early Head Start children on average have higher cognitive development scores. More Head Start parents read to their children. According to the National Head Start Association, the Head Start programs are a wise investment for society. Society receives nearly $9 in benefits for every $1 invested in an Early Head Start or Head Start child. These benefits include increased earnings, employment, family stability and decreased welfare dependency, crime costs, grade repetition and special education. Properly trained Head Start parents can decrease Medicaid costs by $198 per family. A higher proportion of Early Head Start and Head Start children receive dental services. Parents report their children to be in excellent or very good health as compared to children not enrolled. Head Start families report reduced frequency and severity of problem behavior. These families are found to have greater quality of life satisfaction, increased confidence in coping skills and decreased feelings of anxiety, depression and sickness. Head Start and Early Head Start benefit children and society by reducing crime and its cost to crime victims. Head Start children are significantly less likely to have been charged with a crime than their siblings who did not participate in the Head Start program.Jo Geib Crystal River Preschool Theres a debate going on about Hillary Clintons past. If she runs for president in 2016, should Republicans reach back to the scandals of her years as first lady? Or should they focus on more recent times, especially her tenure as secretary of state, to build a case against her? The GOP doesnt have to choose. Of course Clintons recent experiences are relevant to a presidential run. But so are her actions in the s, the s and even the s. Its not ancient history; it reveals something about who Clinton was and still is. And re-examining her past is entirely consistent with practices in recent campaigns. In the 2012 presidential race, for example, many in the press were very interested in business deals Mitt Romney made in the 1980s. In the 2004 race, many journalists were even more interested in what George W. Bush did with the Texas Air National Guard in 1968, as well as what John Kerry did in Vietnam that same year. And in 2000, a lot of journalists invested a lot of time trying to find proof that Bush had used cocaine three decades earlier. So by the standards set in coverage of other candidates, Clintons past is not too far past. Thats especially true because there will be millions of young voters in 2016 who know little about the Clinton White House. Americans who had not even been born when Bill Clinton first took the oath of office in 1993 will be eligible to vote two years from now. They need to know that Hillary Clinton has been more than secretary of state. Those voters need to know, for starters, that Mrs. Clinton once displayed incredible investment skills. In 1978 and 1979, when her husband was attorney general and then governor of Arkansas, she enlisted the help of a well-connected crony to invest $1,000 in the highly volatile and risky cattle futures market. Several months later, she walked away with $100,000 a nearly 10,000 percent profit. Cynics thought the wellconnected crony who executed the trades might have paid her the profits from good trades and absorbed the losses from bad ones, but Mrs. Clinton insisted that she developed her investing acumen by reading The Wall Street Journal. New voters also need to learn about Mrs. Clintons checkered history as a lawyer and the game of hide-and-seek she played with federal prosecutors who subpoenaed her old billing records as part of the Whitewater investigation. After two years of defying subpoenas and not producing the records, she suddenly claimed that they had been in a closet in the White House residence all along. New voters also need to learn about Mrs. Clintons purge of the White House travel office, which was done to steer business to another Clinton crony. Theres no doubt she directed the 1993 firings of longtime White House employees although she testified under oath that she did not. Years later, prosecutors concluded that Mrs. Clintons sworn testimony ... is factually inaccurate. Finally, there is the Monica Lewinsky scandal, which Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has somewhat clumsily brought into the political discussion. In 1998 and 1999, Mrs. Clinton essentially played two roles, that of wronged wife and that of strategist and spokeswoman in a concerted White House attack-the-prosecutor misdirection campaign. The reason we now have the phrase vast right-wing conspiracy is that Mrs. Clinton unveiled it shortly after the scandal broke, in a mostly successful effort to divert press attention away from President Clintons behavior and instead to independent counsel Kenneth Starr and some antiClinton groups. The great story here, for anybody willing to find it and write about it and explain it, is this vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president, Clinton said on the Today show in January 1998. What followed was a long, hyperventilating and mostly irrelevant diversion campaign Look! Ken Starr was once a tobacco lawyer! that would be a model for guilty defendants everywhere. Mrs. Clintons past was an issue in 2000, when (while still first lady) she ran for a Senate seat from New York. Obviously, it didnt keep her from winning in that Democratic state. Even in a national contest, a focus on Mrs. Clintons past likely wont decide the outcome any more than Romneys time at Bain Capital decided the 2012 race. But it will help define Mrs. Clinton for millions of voters who werent around or werent paying attention in the 1990s. They need to know. And thats what campaigns are for.Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner.

The decision came last month following a workshop where community leaders gathered to brainstorm ideas that would allow limited and temporary public access to the 57-acre property. The property was purchased through a combined effort of Crystal River, the county, the wildlife service, the state of Florida, Southwest Florida Water Management District, the Felburn Foundation and thousands of smaller contributions from residents, businesses and civic groups. The city is the official owner of Three Sisters and it has a management agreement with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to operate the property. The springs, and lack of positive movement by federal officials, have been the topic of much debate lately, with local community members pushing to allow some form of public access to the springs. Up until now, officials with USFWS had been reluctant about allowing public access due to other projects, but last month suggested some flexibility. Fish and Wildlife officials said the limited public access could begin as early as September of this year if an agreement can be reached on the details of a plan unveiled at the workshop. The limited access plan, as of now, includes the following proposals: Daily public access from 10a.m. to noon and 2 to 4p.m. Temporarily use the Kings Bay Drive entrance to allow shuttles to drive into the property until a permanent entrance is constructed on Cutler Spur Boulevard. Sell tickets at tour offices and dive shops with Special Unit Permits to do business in Three Sisters Springs. The cost of tickets is undetermined. Since there are no toilet facilities at the property, tourists will be told to use facilities where they buy their tickets, with the possibility of installing portable toilets until a permanent structure can be built. Transportation also is undetermined, but alluded to various options including using the county bus service. The decision to work toward limited access paves the way for permanent access at a point somewhere down the line. Its just one step in what will be a long journey. But with tourism a vital mechanism for the future of the county, it is a step forward toward a successful future.

She dialed, got a connection instantly and explained her problem. When the agent got her location, he began asking about nearby main streets. Nothing registered, whereby she said it would be easier perhaps if he gave his location and she directed him. He said that wouldnt work, as he was in the Philippines.

Jealousy over earningsWhat is happening to the middle class? Can anyone describe just what the middle class is? Are there only three classes, lower, middle and upper? If we talk about the haves and the have-nots, there is nothing in the middle, is there? People, writers and politicians all say bad things are happening to the middle class. Are people in the middle class falling into the lower class or rising into the upper class? Is the middle class going away? Politicians would like us all to believe that the problem, if there is one, lies with the pay that corporate or Wall Street executives receive. They are easy to identify and easy to pick on. Usually their pay is determined by the board of directors of the corporation and is tied into their performance or the profits of the corporation. Just why are these people so bad? They are the ones that create the economy of the United States, keep us employed and see that we get paid. I dont think that they are really so bad, do you? Lets talk about some other people that receive outrageous sums of money for the services they perform, OK? How about sports figures who receive multimillion dollar contracts for playing ball? How about the Japanese baseball pitcher that just received a $155 million contract from the New York Yankees? How about the football quarterback who just signed a $40 million contract? Why not pick on the television personality who became a billionaire in just a few short years? Or why not pick on Madonna, who made more than $100 million in 2013? Why not pick on Hollywood celebrities who make millions of dollars on one movie? Why not pick on owners of sports franchises? These people all get paid much more than CEOs or Wall Street executives. The politicians compare the wages of the working man to the CEO because it is easy to do and they are not considered heroes. What this does in effect is to create a feeling of hate and division and it is ripping our country apart at the seams. This is not good for anyone except the politicians that want us fighting among ourselves. Lets all of us be happy and get on with our lives without jealously and hate and while we are at it lets throw the bums that are causing this division out of office. Who needs them?Alfred E. Mason Crystal RiverQuestions about gas cardsIve been waiting patiently for the Chronicleto ask some questions about the gas card; however, nothing seems to be forthcoming. So here are some basic questions I have for county administration. 1. Why are we using gas cards to begin with? 2. If we are, why is there no audit of those cards done semi-annually or annually? Why doesnt the county have two locations for refueling of vehicles where it can be monitored and recorded properly? Plus, with the gas cards is the county paying tax on the fuel we are buying, when we dont need to if we had a refueling station. How much is the county spending each month on fuel for vehicles, and has there ever been an audit of that? I havent even seen where the Board of County Commissioners has taken this up for discussion. Are we buying fuel for off-road equipment the same way? Again, paying taxes we dont need to pay. Mr. Thorpe, you have some serious questions to answer on this, and a detailed audit should be done of every department that has gas cards, plus they should be done away with and refueling stations set up in two locations in the county were all county vehicles go to get fuel and it is signed for and recorded with mileage and tag numbers. It seems this county can find more ways to throw taxpayers money away and then complain they dont have the money.

SnellingsRescuing pets one at a timeAs I pet the big black and white cat, he marches and purrs with delight. I see contentment in his golden eyes and Im sure my pleasure is equal to his because a happy cat is delightful. His name is Sylvester and he is often referred to as a tuxedo because of his markings. Sylvester wasnt always a happy cat. Four years ago, he was abruptly abandoned and left to fend for himself. He was one of those stud cats often referred to as feral, wild, unfriendly. In reality, he was confused, hungry, and frightened due to a cruel humans decision to discard him without concern. It took several weeks to lure him from his hiding places and safety of the high grasses at the lake into my yard, where I placed cat food daily. Finally, the time was right to bait the live cage trap and, within minutes, the young tomcat was yowling with disdain and terror. To calm him, I threw a blanket over the cage, put him in my vehicle, and drove to Dunnellon Animal Hospital. Thankfully, the staff accepted him immediately for necessary testing, shots and neutering. After so many traumas, the road to becoming socialized with the other rescued cats was very long and required patience, gentle motions, and kind words. When Sylvester does his prancing and pushes his head against my hand for attention, I am grateful that he wandered to my home when he was lost and unwanted. He, as all animals, is special and unique and he deserves to be cared for and loved. Hundreds, thousands of cats and dogs will never know the safety and comfort of a forever home. Being a responsible pet owner includes spaying and neutering to reduce the number of unwanted, mistreated, multiplying animals. This lifesaving procedure is available at minimal cost because there are so many Sylvesters hiding in the grass who will not be rescued. Wont you make a simple phone call and save innocent animals from disaster or death? Animals have no voice to ask for help. If my sweet Sylvester could talk or if I could understand meow, I believe he would say thank you for loving me. You are welcome, precious cat.Joanie Welch InvernessOPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, MARCH8, 2014 A9 6659 W. Norvell Bryant Hwy.

Spring up Associated PressDave LeMote wipes down a post clock Friday at Electric Time Company Inc. in Medfield, Mass. Most Americans will set their clocks 60 minutes forward before heading to bed tonight, but daylight saving time officially starts Sunday at 2 a.m. Set clocks ahead tonightWASHINGTON A sure sign that spring is on the horizon: Its time to set the clocks forward for daylight saving time. Most Americans will set their clocks 60 minutes later before heading to bed tonight, but daylight saving time officially starts Sunday at 2a.m. local time. You lose an hour of sleep, but daylight saving time arrives with the promise of many months ahead with an extra hour of evening light. Its also a good time to put new batteries in warning devices such as smoke detectors and hazard warning radios. The time change is not observed by Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas. Daylight saving time ends Nov.2.Report faults program oversightWASHINGTON The government is falling short in assessing the risks of a program that allows tens of thousands of foreign students to stay in the United States and work for close to 21/2 years, according to a newly released report from the Government Accountability Office. The GAO, Congress investigative arm, examined the optional practical training program in Immigration and Customs Enforcement. As of November 2013, the program had approved 100,000 of the 1million foreign students in the U.S. to work for 12 to 31 months in a job related to their completed academic studies. Specifically, the Feb. 27 report raised the possibility of the government losing track of students who might overstay their visas, bogus companies or organizations exploiting the students.Woman killed by gun in donationsCHICAGO A woman working at a Chicago thrift store was killed when a gun that was in dropped-off clothing accidentally discharged, hitting her in the chest. Chicago police said the 54-year-old woman and a co-worker was sorting the donated clothing in a back room of the store in the citys Washington Heights neighborhood when the co-worker shook a sock. A gun fell to the floor and discharged. The wounded woman was taken Friday to hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The victims name had not been released by authorities, pending notification of relatives.

Hillary Clinton urges equalityUNITED NATIONS Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declared Friday that achieving equality for women and girls is the great unfinished business of the 21st century. The potential 2016 presidential candidate galvanized the U.N. commemoration of International Womens Day, repeating her resounding declaration as first lady at the 1995 U.N. womens conference in Beijing that human rights are womens rights and womens rights are human rights. Clinton said important progress has been made, citing the increasing number of girls in school and women in elected office, and the repeal of many discriminatory laws. Yet for all we have achieved together, this remains the great unfinished business of the 21st century, she said. She called for greater opportunities for women and girls and urged the U.N. to include gender equality at the forefront of its new goals to promote development.Malaysia loses contact with planeKUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia Malaysia Airlines said Saturday it lost contact with a plane carrying 239 people on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing and search and rescue teams were trying to locate the aircraft. Flight MH370 lost contact with the Subang air traffic control near Kuala Lumpur at 2:40 a.m. Saturday. According to Chinas state news agency, the plane lost communication over Vietnam with control department in Ho Chi Minh City at 1:20a.m. The flight was operated on the Boeing 777-200 aircraft. It departed Kuala Lumpur at 12:41a.m. Saturday and was expected to land in Beijing at 6:30a.m. Saturday. The plane was carrying 227 passengers, including two infants, and 12 crew members, the airline said. Malaysia Airlines has 15 Boeing 777-200 jets in its fleet of about 100 planes. The state-owned carrier last month reported its fourth straight quarterly loss. The 777 had not had a fatal crash in its 20-year history until the Asiana crash in San Francisco in July 2013. World BRIEFS From wire reports Russia plays up Crimea Associated PressMOSCOW Russia was swept up in patriotic fervor Friday in anticipation of bringing Crimea back into its territory, with tens of thousands of people thronging Red Square chanting Crimea is Russia! as a parliamentary leader declared the peninsula would be welcomed as an equal subject of Russia. Ignoring sanctions threats and warnings from the U.S., leaders of both houses of parliament said they would support a vote by Crimeans to split with Ukraine and join Russia signaling for the first time that the Kremlin was prepared to annex the strategic region. Tensions in Crimea were heightened late Friday when pro-Russian forces tried to seize a Ukrainian military base in the port city of Sevastopol, the Ukrainian branch of the Interfax news agency reported. No shots were fired, but stun grenades were thrown, according to the report, citing Ukrainian officials. About 100 Ukrainian troops stationed at the base barricaded themselves inside one of their barracks, and their commander began negotiations, the report said. Crimeas pro-Moscow leader denied any incident at the base. In the week since Russia seized control of Crimea, Russian troops have been neutralizing and disarming Ukrainian military bases on the Black Sea peninsula. Some Ukrainian units, however, have refused to give up. Crimeas new leader has said proRussian forces numbering more than 11,000 now control all access to region and have blockaded all military bases that havent yet surrendered. Only Tuesday, President Vladimir Putin said that Russia has no intention of annexing Crimea, though he has insisted that its residents have the right to determine the regions status in a referendum. By Friday, however, Russian lawmakers were forging ahead with preparations for a possible annexation and welcoming a delegation from Crimeas regional parliament. Valentina Matvienko, the speaker of Russias upper house of parliament, made clear the country would welcome Crimea if it votes in the March 16 referendum to join its giant neighbor. About 60 percent of Crimeas population identifies itself as Russian. If the decision is made, then (Crimea) will become an absolutely equal subject of the Russian Federation, Matvienko said during a visit from the chairman of the Crimean parliament, Vladimir Konstantinov. GOP pushes social issues at conservative showcase Associated PressSen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., speaks Friday at the Conservative Political Action Committee annual conference in National Harbor, Md. Friday marks the second day of the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, which brings together prospective presidential candidates, conservative opinion leaders and tea party activists from coast to coast. Lovers of liberty Associated PressOXON HILL, Md. Some of the GOPs most prominent conservatives insisted Friday that Republicans should emphasize hot-button social issues like abortion and gay marriage in this years midterm elections, exposing an ideological divide within a party trying to capture the Senate and then the White House. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, a Southern Baptist pastor, set the tone early in the second day of the Conservative Political Action Conference. If this nation forgets our God, then God will have every right to forget us, Huckabee said to cheers. Its time for government to scale back, not for people of faith to scale back. The day also featured Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, who, like Huckabee, have run presidential campaigns fueled in part by support from religious voters. But Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, one of the final speakers of the day, represents a new generation of libertarian-minded Republicans less likely to oppose gay marriage or embrace laws allowing the government to affect peoples private lives. Theres a great battle going on. Its for the heart and soul of America, Paul told a swelling crowd, focusing on civil liberties instead of social issues. You may think Im talking about electing Republicans. Im not, he said. Im talking about electing lovers of liberty. The ideological tug-of-war played out a few miles from Washington at the nations largest annual gathering of conservative activists, where most of the prospective 2016 Republican presidential field will have taken the stage by Saturdays end of the three-day gathering. It was an early presidential audition for a party optimistic about its chances in the November congressional elections and eager to snap its two-election mini-losing streak in presidential contests. National Republican leaders are working to expand the GOPs appeal following a disappointing 2012 election season. The political debate over abortion shows no signs of being resolved, more than 40 years after the Supreme Court legalized the procedure in the case of Roe v. Wade. Young people today are somewhat more conservative on the issue than middle-aged Americans, but the nation is split on the deeply personal issue. The politics of gay marriage are different. A growing number of high-profile Republicans including Ohio Sen. Rob Portman and former Vice President Dick Cheney have announced personal support for same-sex unions, despite a national party platform that does not. And a series of recent court rulings have found state laws that outlaw the practice may be unconstitutional. Polls suggest that young people solidly support gay marriage, while opposition is strongest among the oldest Americans. Last week, Republican Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed a bill adopted by the states GOP-led Legislature that would have allowed businesses to refuse service to gays. The 2012 elections illustrated the risks for Republican candidates who focus on social issues. Republican Missouri Senate candidate Todd Aiken said pregnancies in cases of legitimate rape are rare. In Indiana, Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock said even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen. Both candidates lost, hurting the GOPs most recent drive for the Senate majority. Santorum insisted that Republicans not abandon conservative values. Were told we have to put aside what we believe is in the best interests of the country so a Republican candidate can win, Santorum said. But victory on those terms would be a devastating loss for America, he said. Perry avoided social issues in his remarks, instead criticizing Democratic governors for leading states with higher taxes, more regulations and fewer jobs. He also suggested that Washington politicians in both parties have seized too much power and its time to elect the right kind of leaders. Still, the days speaking program was dominated by social conservatives, such as former Christian Coalition leader Ralph Reed, who offered little tolerance for Republicans who lack the courage to stand and fight against gay marriage and abortion rights. I have a message for these profiles in cowardice who often display the backbone of a chocolate eclair and cave the minute theyre criticized, Reed said. Were not going to follow lukewarm socalled leaders any more whose god is their ambition, whose idol is power. Associated PressPro-Putin demonstrators wave Russian national flags Friday as they move toward Red Square in Moscow, with Spassky Tower, left, and St. Basile Cathedral, right, in the background. Russia rallied support Friday for a Crimean bid to secede from Ukraine, with a leader of Russias parliament assuring her Crimean counterpart that the region would be welcomed as an absolutely equal subject of the Russian Federation.

At the conclusion of those two matches, Citrus (8-3 record) had miraculously swept both doubles matches for the comeback win, taking the tennis meet 4-3, and handing Lecanto (10-2) its second loss of the season. The two intra-county teams also share District 3A-5 and will meet one final time from March 31 to April 4 for the district meet to be hosted by Lecanto. It was a good night for us, (though) pretty tense, Citrus head coach Scott Waters said of the win. (Winning was) big time. We switched and put Natalie Dodd in (No. 2) doubles and this is only her second time playing doubles. For a freshman shes really stepping up; doing a great job. Dodd, and partner Leah Panthers come out on top Lecantos Gurnani leads team by CitrusLARRYBUGG CorrespondentINVERNESS Rishi Gurnani plays the game of tennis the way one would expect a very intelligent person to. The Lecanto High School senior will run his opponent all over the court and then hit an easy drop shot for the point. Thats the way Gurnani played it when he beat Citrus Brady Hayes on Friday at the Citrus High School tennis court. Gurnani won 6-1, 6-1 in No. 1 singles and earned himself an early exit on a cold day. The temperature was in the 50s on a windy night. For the match, Lecanto beat Citrus 6-1. Gurnani also combined with Sam Alford to win the No. 1 doubles 8-1. They beat Hayes and Noah McGinness 8-1. Gurnani is someone who has to seriously consider whether to study at the University of Illinois, Stanford or Princeton. He has a 4.6 weighted grade point average and is in the International Baccalaureate program See LECANTO/ Page B4 See DOUBLES/ Page B4 Invasion of C.R. STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the ChronicleCrystal Rivers Jordan Humphreys dives back to first just ahead of Lecanto first baseman Jacob Schencks tag during Friday nigh ts game at Crystal River High School. The Panthers took a 5-3 victory over the Pirates. Lecanto baseball gets rare victory at Crystal River with 5-3 district triumph SEANARNOLD CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER Fridays rivalry matchup between Lecanto and Crystal River started out as an offensive show, with seven runs scored over the first three innings, but soon turned into a pitching duel between relievers Levi OSteen and Derrick Rogers. A group of Panther seniors were up for either, however, as Nathan Hines and Jacob Schenck notched three hits apiece while OSteen, in his first outing of the season, issued 5 1/3 scoreless innings to help give LHS coach Dave Logue his first win at Mike Hampton Field with a 5-3 victory. Lecanto, which went without an error in the field, improves to 1-1 in District 5A-6 and 4-5 overall, while CRHS drops to 0-3 in the district and 5-5 on the season. OSteen, who made his return back this week from a wrist injury, took over for an erratic Zach Bonick in the second inning Crystal River base runner Cody McDonald tries to avoid the tag from Lecanto shortstop Nathan Hines. McDonald was eventually tagged out for the unassisted double play by Hines on Friday night at Crystal River High School. Panthers softball cruises past Pirates C.J. RISAK CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER When Lecanto assistant softball coach Butch Miller paid Panthers pitcher Danielle Yant a visit with one out in the seventh inning and two runners on base, he had a simple question, according to head coach Robert Dupler. When Butch went out, he asked Dani, What do you think? Dupler said. And she told him, I want to finish what I started. She did. Unlike their two previous 5A-6 games, both one-run losses in which they surrendered a total of 23 runs including an 8-7 defeat to Citrus, a game Lecanto led 7-3 entering the seventh this time the Panthers prevailed, beating Crystal River 9-4 at Crystal River. Both teams are now 1-2 in district play; Lecanto is 2-3 overall, the Pirates are 5-5. Dani and I talked before the game, Dupler said. I just told her that the team needs this as much as you do. Shes a senior and she took control. Despite the slow start record-wise for Lecanto, one part of its game that hasnt been wanting is offense. The Panthers have had doubledigit hit totals in four of their five games. I told them if they keep this up and were only into our fifth game, Dupler said, can you imagine what it will be like when we peak? Lecanto took command against a young Pirate squad there are five freshmen on the roster, and four of them started, according to coach Cassidy Rash in the second inning, with Jordan Martin knocking in Breanna Martin and Rebecca Schuler, who each singled, with a triple. A failed attempt to force Jordan Martin on Paige Richards ground ball put runners at second and third for Amber Hopkins, who delivered a two-run base hit to right field to make it 4-0. The Panthers scored two more in the third, the first on an error and the second on a double by Richards. Haley Coleman delivered Crystal Rivers first run in the bottom of the third with a double, but the Pirates could not generate enough offense to seriously threaten Lecanto. Jordan Martin, who had three hits and five runs batted in in the game for Lecanto, brought home Breanna Martin, who had doubled, with a sacrifice fly in the fifth, then followed Breanna Martins triple (Breanna also had three hits in the game) with a run-scoring single in the seventh. Jordan Martin made it 9-2, scoring when Richards singled and was thrown out at second. Perhaps the offensive highlight for Crystal River came in the bottom of the sixth, when Coleman a freshman, she had three hits and three RBI led the inning off with a slicing drive in the gap between right and center field, the ball going to the fence and Coleman racing around the bases for a home run. The Pirates added two more in the bottom of the seventh on Kathryn Desommas double and Colemans See INVASION/ Page B3 See PAST/ Page B3

The Panther bats went on the attack right out of the gate, scoring three runs in the first inning behind hits by Schenck and Hines, a walk by OSteen, and a two-run outfield blast by Kyler Speagle that was misplayed by the Pirates. Its nice to get a win at Crystal River and go 1-1 in the district, Schenck said. Weve struggled here in the past, but we turned it around. Were a tight team and we play together. OSteen definitely held us down, CRHS coach Bobby Stack said. If we catch that fly ball (by Speagle) in left field, and if our starting pitcher (Kameron Pennington) had his better stuff, it could have been a different ballgame. Pirate hitters walked five times over the first pair of innings before a two-run double by senior catcher Mason Pateracki knotted the score at 3-3 and set the table for OSteen. I was hoping Levi was ready, Logue said. I didnt know what was going to happen. Hes a battler. He showed me a lot tonight. The seniors got the job done tonight. Thats why we won. OSteen used his curveball early in counts even in hitters counts to take advantage of a wide strike zone and puzzle opposing batters. The curveball helps out because Im not a hard-throwing guy, OSteen said. Ive got to have a lot of pitches. Believe it or not, my changeup is probably my best pitch, but I didnt even throw it all that much tonight, except against Mason. Lecanto added a run each in the third and seventh frames. OSteen drove in a go-ahead run with a double down the third-base line in the third, and a slicing bloop to left-center by Hines in the seventh allowed OSteen (two walks) to score. The Panthers boarded two runners with no outs in that final inning before Pateracki and his Pirate defense answered with a 2-5-3 double play off a bunt by sophomore catcher Alex Delgado (single, walk), limiting Lecantos scoring opportunities. We had a good approach tonight, Logue said. Our swings were flattening out. Pennington tossed three full innings for the Pirates to start the game, allowing four hits, two walks and two earned runs while striking out two. Rogers rung up seven Panthers in his four innings of work, and surrendered four hits, one walk and the one run. At the plate, Rogers walked with the bases loaded to score right fielder Casey Purnell, who had a pair of walks and two runs in the first two innings. Junior third baseman Jordan Humphreys lined a pair of singles for Crystal River. Overall, we cant keep our fire through a whole game, Stack said. We get a spark and cant create a flame. Until our kids want it a little more, were not going to be where we want to be. Were not put together as a team right now. Crystal River travels to face Brooksville Nature Coast on Tuesday, and Lecanto plays at home against Belleview on Wednesday. INVASIONContinued from Page B1 RBI base hit. Lecanto played a great game and Danielle pitched a great game for them, Rash said. We could have adjusted better at the plate and we could have played better defense. Richards also had three hits for Lecanto and Hopkins collected two. Yant got the win, allowing four runs on six hits. McCale Wilson pitched the first two innings for Crystal River and took the loss. PASTContinued from Page B1 No. 2 Wichita State 32-0 after beating EvansvilleST. LOUIS Cleanthony Early and Ron Baker scored 17 points apiece and No. 2 Wichita State set a Missouri Valley tournament record with 11 blocked shots, staying perfect for the season with an 80-58 romp over Evansville in the quarterfinals Friday. D.J. Balentine had 31 points with seven 3pointers for ninth-seeded Evansville (14-19), which lost twice by an average of 15 points to Wichita State (32-0) in the regular season. Kadeem Coleby had six of the blocks for the Shockers, who are two victories shy of matching the NCAA record of 34 wins to start a season by UNLV in 1990-91.Mavs blow 30-point lead, rally past Blazers 103-98DALLAS Dirk Nowitzki scored 22 points, Devin Harris hit the go-ahead shot in the final minute and the Dallas Mavericks rallied in the fourth quarter after blowing a 30-point to beat the Portland Trail Blazers 103-98 Friday night. LaMarcus Aldridge finished with 20 for Portland, including 18 in the third quarter when the Blazers went in front for the first time at 69-67 after trailing 44-14 early in the second quarter. The score was tied 98-all when Aldridge missed a shot from the lane and Harris won the scramble for the rebound. He dribbled the length of the floor and hit a leaning shot on the baseline and was fouled by Damian Lillard. The free throw put Dallas up by three and Aldridges pass went over Lillards head out of bounds.

B4SATURDAY, MARCH8, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Stanley, won the first set 6-4 in No. 2 doubles, while dropping the second 6-3 to Lecantos pair of Chynna Liu and Megan Jervis. An 11-9 tiebreaker win decided the match in Citrus favor, and ultimately the meet. Citrus had already won No. 1 doubles, as the duo of Melanie Dodd and Paige Jordan won in straight sets over Lecantos Madison Gamble and Mahima Tatam 6-4, 6-3: it was all up to No. 2 doubles to decide the meet. I couldnt be happier with this team. This was a really big win for us, Waters said. Lecanto has been playing some pretty good tennis so this was good for our program. Melanie Dodd continued her intra-county regular season unbeaten singles streak with a 6-0, 6-0 decision over Lecantos Gamble in No. 1 singles. Lecantos Tatam took No. 2 singles over Citrus Jordan 6-1, 6-0.Teammate Simi Shah dominated in No. 3 singles, earning another point for the Panthers. Shah won convincingly 6-0, 6-0 over Citrus Juliann Johnson. The Lady Panthers grabbed their final point of the meet in No. 4 singles as Lecantos Liu held off Citrus Leah Stanley 6-3, 6-3. Natalie Dodd started off her successful evening by first winning No. 5 singles over Lecantos Jervis 6-3, 6-2 before going on to do her part in securing the win for the Canes. It was a good match and the girls played hard, Lecanto head coach Sammie Hall said of her team. With Citrus its always close. Its been 3-4 or 4-3 the last few times (weve played). Its just a matter of who ends up with the 4. at Lecanto. He said he is thinking of studying engineering and business in college. In tennis, he has an 8-2 singles mark. Rishi is an extremely good tennis player because he uses his strength to his advantage, Lecanto coach Jack Hall said. He is very quick. He plays a thinking mans game. He doesnt try to overpower anybody. He plays angles and looks for a shot that he can put away. Hes very patient. Gurnani felt the singles score didnt indicate the degree of difficulty. It was a good match, he said. I just played consistent and played my game and it worked out very well. The best part of my game is my mental side. I try to find out my opponents weakness and attack that. The cold doesnt matter. You have to play your game. It is either extremely cold or its too hot in Florida. He missed the first match between these two teams due to a shoulder strain. Lecanto took the No. 2 doubles match. Dhruv Patel and Marshall King beat Eric Vestervall and Jarred Muse 8-5. Sam Alford claimed the No. 2 singles, beating Noah McGinness 6-2, 6-0. Citruss Vestervall took No. 3 singles, beating Patel 6-3, 4-6, 6-2. Lecantos King won the No. 4 singles, beating Muse 6-4, 4-6, 7-5. Lecantos Rio Lumapas emerged victorious in No. 5 singles, beating Joe Kelly 6-1, 6-2. We always seem to get Lecanto when its freezing cold outside, Citrus coach James Martone said. Its good to be out here playing. The kids are improving. Its always good to play Lecanto. Their number one, Rishi, is back. We are up to full strength. We have to start playing tennis. Hopefully, by district, well get better. Its a cold, horrible day for playing tennis, Hall said. I like the way the team played. We came back from a loss to them earlier in the season. Thats always good. We have to play our best tennis late in the season. LECANTOContinued from Page B1 DOUBLESContinued from Page B1 A day of survival at Doral After two rounds, only four golfers under par Associated PressDORAL The new Doral in raging wind looked a lot like an old U.S. Open on Friday. Matt Kuchar played out of the rough to tap-in range for birdie on the 18th hole for a 2-over 74 that allowed him to join an exclusive group at the Cadillac Championship one of only four survivors to par. The Blue Monster gobbled up just about everyone else. Dustin Johnson bogeyed three of his last six holes for a 74. Patrick Reed made only two birdies in his round of 75. Hunter Mahan atoned for a triple bogey with a 4-iron into 5 feet for eagle on the eighth hole, giving him a 74. They joined Kuchar atop the leaderboard at 1-under 143. I felt stressed all day, because I knew every shot had big penalty written all over it, Mahan said. It was a really tough day. There wasnt an easy shot out there. One of those rounds where it could go south pretty fast, so youve got to grind it out and find a way to get a number up there and get to the weekend. Only three players broke par in the second round. No one shot in the 60s. The average score was a fraction under 76. I dont think Ive played in conditions this difficult in the U.S., Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland said after a 71 that left him one shot behind. Its an Open Championship day. Its a real Friday afternoon at St. Andrews in 2010 before they called it. It was hard out there really, really hard. Rory McIlroy (74), Francesco Molinari (75) and Jamie Donaldson of Wales (70) also were one behind at even-par 144. Tiger Woods hit three balls in the water and scraped out a 73, thanks in part to a 90-foot birdie putt on the par-3 fourth hole. Phil Mickelson made back-to-back double bogeys, and then laid on his back along the bank of the fourth tee during a long wait. He got up, hit into the water and made another double bogey. Lefty shot 75. Both were still in the mix, only six shots behind. Its a tough golf course as it is, Reed said. And with how hard the wind is blowing, it made it even tougher. Almost felt like we were playing at a major today. At times, it looked even worse. Fist pumps were replaced by players stretching out their arm to take a penalty drop from the water 113 balls in the water, which is everywhere on the course that Gil Hanse redesigned under the direction of new owner Donald Trump. Trump described it as bold. It turned out to be brutal. And just like a U.S. Open, there were plenty of complaints. The greens were always going to be firm because the course was built in under a year. There was always going to be concern about the sharp edges of fairways and greens that sent balls down the bank and into the water. Throw in gusts that topped 30 mph, and any score was possible on any hole. The setup is horrendous, Webb Simpson said after a 78 that included a bunker shot that went onto and over the seventh green and into the water. Even if we had a 10 mph wind, it still would have been bad. I played terrible. I want to get that out there. But when you have conditions like this, and a setup like this, so much luck comes into play. Henrik Stenson prefaced his comments by saying, How do you say something you might regret the rest of your life? So he didnt. Stenson, part of the Nos. 1-2-3 grouping from the world ranking, had a 76 and joined Woods at 5over 149. Masters champion Adam Scott, the other member of that illustrious trio, had a 73 and was at 4-over 148. The group was a combined 14-over par for the tournament. Stenson was walking off the 15th green Friday morning while finishing up the rain-delayed first round. Spotting a small group of reporters, he said, Are you having fun watching? And then as he walked away, he smiled and said, Because its sure as hell not any fun to be playing. Johnson managed for the longest time. Even as everyone was succumbing to par, he was at 3 under with a birdie on No. 12. But he dropped a shot on the par3 13th. His short iron into the 15th hit the green and rolled over the back and into the water. And on the 18th, his fairway bunker shot came out too strong and over the green, and he missed a 6-foot par putt that would have given him the outright lead. The forecast is for less wind on the weekend, and surely a sigh of relief from the players. And this World Golf Championship is wide open. Weve all got a shot at it now, Woods said.

Logano sets track record Driver will be on pole for Las Vegas Associated PressLAS VEGAS Joey Logano believes two facts are abundantly clear after he emerged from the organized chaos of NASCARs first three-round knockout qualifying session Friday with the pole position at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This new qualifying system is a whole lot more interesting than the prior system. And nobody is quite sure what theyre doing yet. It gets crazy out there, said Logano, who earned his eighth career pole. I think its way cooler than old-style qualifying, dont get me wrong. Its awesome. ... Were all learning right now. Its all new to us, but were having fun with it. I enjoy it. I think its cool. The Penske Ford team has figured it out better than most. Logano won the pole for Sundays Las Vegas race with a qualifying lap at a track-record 193.28 mph, and hell start on the front row next to teammate Brad Keselowski, who came in second at 193.099. The Penske drivers swept the top two spots for the second straight race, reversing their two-round qualifying finish in Phoenix a week ago. Clint Bowyer finished third, with Austin Dillon in fourth and Jimmie Johnson in fifth. NASCAR added the knockout system to goose interest in a dull weekly ritual, and its working. The teams are challenged by multiple chances to hit top speed. The drivers are both worried about the danger and excited by the challenge. And fans seem quite intrigued, judging by the larger-than-normal crowd in the Speedway stands. Thats the whole point of this, Logano said of the fan turnout. A lot more preparation goes into it, a lot more communication between myself, my spotter, my crew chief. Not really about our race car, but how are we going to go out there, and whats our game plan? Every time weve had a game plan going into it, its changed so far. At least were pulling audibles and theyre working.

NHLCAPSULES Panthers 2, Sabres 0SUNRISE Roberto Luongo made 25 saves in his return to Florida, while Dmitry Kulikov and Jesse Winchester each scored power-play goals to lead the Panthers over the Buffalo Sabres 2-0 on Friday night. Luongo, acquired in a trade with Vancouver on Tuesday, was in net for the first time for Florida since April 18, 2006. Luongo previously played for Florida from 2000-2006. It was the fourth shutout of the season for Luongo. His last was on Dec. 13, 2013, a 4-0 win for Vancouver over Edmonton in which he made 19 saves. It was the first regular-season shutout for the Panthers since a 2-0 win over Carolina on March 11, 2012. Michal Neuvirth stopped 42 shots in his first start for Buffalo since being acquired from Washington last Wednesday. The Panthers won for just the second time in seven games. The Sabres lost their second in six games.Red Wings 7, Devils 4DETROIT Johan Franzen had two goals and two assists, Gustav Nyquist a goal and three assists and David Legwand a goal and two assists in Detroits 7-4 win over the Devils. Brendan Smith, Kyle Quincey and Drew Miller also scored for Detroit. Jonas Gustavsson made 21 saves. Adam Henrique had two goals and Patrik Elias and Jaromir Jagr also scored for New Jersey. Cory Schneider stopped 25 shots.Rangers 4, Hurricanes 2RALEIGH, N.C. Derek Stepan scored on a 5-on-3 power play with 2:45 left in the game to give the New York Rangers a 4-2 win over Carolina. Rick Nash and Ryan McDonagh scored earlier for the Rangers, who beat Carolina for the 10th straight time, and Carl Hagelin added an emptynetter with 41 seconds to go. Carolina took a pair of delay-of-game penalties in the final five minutes to give New York the two-man advantage. Stepan was set up for a short shot by Martin St. Louis, who played his second game with the Rangers since being acquired from Tampa Bay on Wednesday. From wire reports


Associated PressJACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Jaguars are bringing back quarterback Chad Henne and making him the starter. Henne and the team agreed to a two-year contract worth $8 million Friday, keeping him from hitting the free-agent market. Hennes deal includes $4.5 million guaranteed in the first year and comes four days before the beginning of free agency and one day before Henne could have started negotiating with other teams. Coach Gus Bradley made it clear on a conference call that the plan is for Henne to be the starter, even if the general manager Dave Caldwell selects a quarterback with the No. 3 pick in the May draft. Thats our plan, Bradley said. If we did go that route, where we did bring in a quarterback at No. 3, wed like to create an environment where that quarterback could come in and just put all of his focus on preparation and learning without the distractions that come with it. That would be the ideal environment. Henne signed a two-year deal worth $6.75 million with Jacksonville in 2012. He started 13 games last season and threw for 3,421 yards, with 13 touchdowns with 14 interceptions, after replacing benched starter Blaine Gabbert. His return could mean the end of Gabberts tenure in Jacksonville, especially if the team drafts another quarterback. Gabbert is in the final year of his contract, and although his 2014 salary is guaranteed, the Jaguars are unlikely to keep Gabbert as the third-stringer. Henne is 5-14 as a starter in two seasons with the Jaguars. A second-round pick by the Miami Dolphins in 2008, Henne said he preferred to stay in Jacksonville. From my standpoint, we did want to talk to a couple of teams, Henne said. But we figured if we got what we wanted and Jacksonville was my No. 1 choice that we would go ahead and sign with Jacksonville and not even venture out and talk with other teams. It was my No. 1 choice and I wanted to be there, so it all worked out for both sides. The decision keeps Henne from having to learn a new offense for the fourth consecutive season. He will team with offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch in hopes of improving one of the worst passing attacks in the league.SPORTSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, MARCH8, 2014 B5 000HJKY 10405 N.

McCutchens homer was part of a five-run barrage against Minnesota starter Vance Worley in 1 2/3 innings. Pirates left-hander Wandy Rodriguez pitched two scoreless innings.Nationals 8, Astros 5VIERA Bryce Harper and Wilson Ramos both hit mammoth home runs in the first inning, and the Washington Nationals beat the Houston Astros 8-5. Harper, who said he has felt no pain in his surgically-repaired left knee this spring, hit a two-run homer off Astros starter Brett Oberholtzer in the first inning. Ramos followed three batters later with a three-run drive that may have gone out of Space Coast Stadium.Cardinals 5, Mets 5PORT ST. LUCIE New York Mets captain David Wright was 0 for 3 in his spring training debut and St. Louis Cardinals prospect Oscar Tavares went 1 for 3 with a run in his first appearance of the exhibition season, a 5-5 tie.

He struck out three.Rockies 7, Angels (ss) 2SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Troy Tulowitzki hit two long home runs, Jorge De La Rosa improved in his second start and the Colorado Rockies beat a Los Angeles Angels split squad 7-2. Tulowitzki hit the first pitch he saw from Joe Blanton halfway up the sloping lawn beyond left field in the first inning. His two-run homer to left in the third went farther, bouncing onto the concourse. Mike McKenry added a solo homer and Josh Rutledge a two-run drive off Blanton, who gave up seven runs and eight hits before he was lifted with two outs in the fourth.Giants 5, Royals 0SURPRISE, Ariz. Tim Lincecum pitched three strong innings and Hunter Pence homered as the San Francisco Giants beat the Kansas City Royals 5-0. Pence hit his first home run to center in the sixth off Wade Davis.

Jackson, coming off a subpar first year of a four-year, $52 million contract, hit two batters and struck out two. Mike Aviles hit a first-inning homer, givng the Indians a quick 2-0 lead after Nyjer Morgan opened the game with a single off Jackson.Reds (ss) 10, Mariners 9PEORIA, Ariz.

Eight features race today SEANARNOLD CorrespondentOpen Wheel Modifieds headline an eight-feature lineup on the final night before the Citrus County Speedway suspends action for three weeks to make way for the Citrus County Fair. Pure Stocks, Street Stocks, Sportsman, Modified Mini Stocks, Pro Figure Eights and Rookie and Pro Hornets join todays racing card, which kicks off with heat races at 5:30 p.m. In the 35-lap OWM opener on Feb. 22, pole sitter Gator Hise fended off a fierce mid-race pursuit from L.J. Grimm for the win. Hise, who finished fifth in points in 2013, expects to be a regular presence this season. Id really like to pursue a championship this year, said Hise, a sophomore at Citrus High School. Its something Ive talked to my parents this year and am going to strive for this year. Im not going to be able to win every race, but I need to run in the top five each week, and the last four races will be like the points chase for us. I was still learning last year, he added. I had a couple of uh-oh races. Jason Waller (Pure Stocks), of Inverness, and Tim Wilson (Street Stocks), of Floral City are each coming off back-toback feature wins. After starting from the back of the field last Saturday, Waller needed all 25 laps to claim the lead, which he wrestled from Karlin Ray on the final stretch. Ray has scored secondplace finishes in each of the previous couple of races. Since coming in second to Curtis Flanagan in the Street Stock opener, Wilson has outpaced the four-time champion the past couple of weeks. Beverly Hills Jay Witfoth, a 2012 points champion, ran away with a convincing wire-to-wire feature win in the last Sportsman feature. Homosassas Johnny Siner had a tougher challenge in the most recent Mod. Minis event, where Clermonts Michael Lawhorn settled for second place after battling Siner late in the 25-lapper. In the Pro Figure Eights opener on Feb. 15, Charley Meyer had similar difficulties escaping Floral Citys Eric Sharrone. After a third restart erased a formidable lead for Meyer, Sharrone draped Meyer from behind before briefly finding space alongside the Pinellas Park driver on lap 23. The two locked up on the turn, however, leaving Meyer with the win and Sharrone with serious damage to his wheel. Wildwoods Marvin Armstrong took last weeks Pro Hornets feature, after a couple of wins by Raymond Vann in the class, while Chieflands Tyler Harmon prevailed in the Rookie Hornets event. Grandstand admission prices are $13 for adults and $9 for students (age 1217), seniors and military personnel with identification. Children age 11 and under are $5, and children under 42 inches are free. SEANARNOLD Correspondent INVERNESS Mickey Kempgens just finished crushing an 18-car field in last Saturdays non-winged sprints event at Citrus County Speedway, and offered that he doesnt like the sound of describing himself as a driver for hire, because he thinks it sounds too arrogant. I just drive, the 32-year-old from Tampa said. I dont have a steady ride. I get hired to drive that sounds really cocky. The reasons behind the demand for Kempgens are simple: hes a winner and he takes care of his rides. I dont tear up equipment, he said. I just came from 11thplace to first and didnt even put a scratch on the car. If I have a third-place car, I finish third, rather than turn it into a secondplace car and tear it up. In Saturdays win, Kempgens tore up the track in his favorite ride, a black No. 5 sprint owned by Lee Cipray. Its just a fast, fast racecar, Kempgens said, and my car owner and crew are on top of their game, so it makes my job easy. Its a perfect little racecar. We go well together. The car was built specially to run without wings, which Kempgens said gives it an advantage in nonwinged events. This year, his second in the No. 5, the two-time champion expects to make all of the non-winged races on the season and compete for a championship. Ive only run a full season twice, and won the championship both times, he said. If Cipray doesnt want to go race one night, Im out of a ride, and either I dont race or I get in a car thats not as good. So Im usually I miss a few races during the year and Im right around fifth or sixth in points. If Im running normally, Im usually in the top five or top three. Kempgens started racing in quarter midgets when he was 12, and has experience with several other classes of cars. But his relationship with sprints has remained monogamous. Ive ran Open Wheel Modifieds out here, trucks, Late Models, road racecars, pretty much anything and everything, he said. But once I sat in a sprint car, that was it. Ive havent driven anything else since. Kempgens has won four sprint features at Citrus the last three seasons. I really like this track, he said. Its a drivers track. It doesnt take a lot of motor to get around here. Driver and sponsor Tony Carreno, Florida Hardwood Supplies and Pro Fab Safety Fencing are among the supporters for Kempgens current ride, as well as his own Team MK Graphics, which does vehicle wraps, signs, banners and other large-scale jobs. He estimates hes done the lettering on 75 percent of his competitors cars. Kempgens also gets help from his friend Troy Robinson, who drives in the Open Wheel Modified class under the nickname The Batman. Saturday, Robinson put his signature Batman symbol decal on the nose of Kempgens ride for some extra mojo. Kempgens enjoys where hes at in racing, and looks forward to continued success, at Citrus and elsewhere. Its a hobby, and Im happy with it. Hopefully, we can get another win here when we come back. Tampa racer Kempgens just worries about driving, mostly to victories BUTCH CRAWFORD/ For the ChronicleMickey Kempgens defeated an 18-car field in last Saturdays non-winged sprints event at Citrus County Speedway. The evolution of the car radio over the years Previously, I did an article on the history of the car radio explaining its early development. Obviously, the car radio has come a long way since those early years with high quality sound and acts as an entertainment system in most of the newer vehicles. Radios have been available from the car manufacturers since their early development in the 1930s. A common feature of modern car radios is the seek function which allows tuning from one station to the next at the push of a button. This was a popular option on some Ford vehicles in the 1950s. It was known as the Town & Country radio since it used a pair of buttons marked Town and Country. Pressing the Town button actuated a motor to rotate the tuning mechanism while the receiver sensitivity was reduced so that only local stronger signals would be received. When a station was tuned, the motor stopped. Pressing the Country button had the same effect except that full sensitivity was enabled so that the very next available station would be selected. In addition, for repeated seeking operations, pressing a foot switch on the left side of the drivers floor would reactivate the Seek at whatever was last selected. Chrysler and Philco announced an all-transistor car radio in April 1955. This all-transistor radio was the first tubeless set in history to be developed and produced for automobiles. It was a $150 option for 1956 Chrysler and Imperial cars. Since the cost of the all-transistor car radio was extremely expensive, the radio manufacturers had come up with a solution to reduce the costs by building a Hybrid car radio that contained both vacuum tubes and transistors in 1956. Chrysler discontinued its all-transistor model and started using hybrid radios in its 1957 car models. Advances in electronics allowed additions to the basic radio and Motorola offered 16 2/3 rpm record players known as Highway Hi-Fi fitted in some Chryslers from 1956 through 1958. Records were produced by Columbia and sold exclusively through Chrysler dealers. A -track tape player was introduced in the early 1960s using a continuous loop cartridge and was the first commercially available car stereo. In 1964 Philips launched the compact cassette. During the 1960s, the 8-Track cartridge was invented and introduced in competition with the cassette system. By the mid-1980s, vacuum amplifiers in autos had been completely replaced by transistorized models. In 1986 with the intent of achieving maximum sound quality, a company introduced a 30-watt-perchannel all-tube power amplifier made for high-end home audio a decade earlier and subsequently adapted for use in automobiles. In the late 1980s, compact disc technology began appearing in vehicles after its use in home audio proved popular. Use of the CD in a moving vehicle faced challenges that compromised playback quality of early units. Shock and vibration inherent with driving a vehicle would cause the laser to lose its track and skip around. Innovations in passive, active and digital skip protection improved on these conditions in the 1990s. Today with satellite radios and portable music gadgets which plug into your cars sound system, even the CD seems to be fading away. If used at all in newer vehicles, CDs can usually be recorded into the units hard drive then removed from the vehicle. We have come a long way from the functionality and quality of the basic car radio of the 1950s.Car jokeI was driving with my friend. We came to a red light and he sped up and whipped right through it. I started freaking out, Hey man, youre going to get us killed! He replied, Relax, my brother drives like this all the time. We came to another red light and he blazed right through it. Youre going to get arrested or get us killed! I said. He said again, Relax, this is how my brother drives. We came to a green light and he stops dead, looking both ways. Dude, its green you can go, I said. He said, Nah man, my brother might be coming the other way. (Thanks again Carey).Upcoming eventsMarch 8 & 15: Cruise-in at 6 p.m. hosted by Citrus County Cruisers at Wendys on U.S. 19 in Crystal River.

RELIGION Section CSATURDAY, MARRELIGION Section CSATURDAY, MARCH 8, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Every once in a while, like 20 or 50 times a day, I wonder if Ill ever get better. I wonder if my faith will ever grow deeper or stronger, if Ill ever have more passion for God, more desire for holiness. Sometimes I think I must surely be the sorriest excuse for a Christian in the history of Christendom. Sometimes people ask me when my next book is coming out, and I tell them probably never. I explain that the publishing market has changed dramatically, which is true, and that people dont buy books the way they used to, also true. I tell them that maybe God has me in timeout, which may also be true. That happened once before when I was full of arrogance and pride and God let me embarrass myself publicly. I dont know if I got any better while I was in timeout, but ever since Ive been scared to be arrogant I still am, but now Im scared when I am, which might be progress. I dont know. But the real reason that I am not writing any more books is that Im waiting to get better, for my faith to grow deeper, for me to have more passion for God, for my lukewarmness to heat up. Ive been waiting for a while now. Times like this, when I wonder if Ill ever get better and be usable for God, I remember a pastor I met years ago. When she was younger, she joined with a traveling evangelist and went all over the country preaching seven days a week. Eventually, she burned out and also became disillusioned by some things she witnessed phoniness behind the pulpit, she said and left the ministry for a while. During her time out, she got caught up in a cocaine whirlwind, using and selling. Heres the best part of her story: The whole time she was getting high, she was also sharing the gospel and praying with her druggie friends who would come to her with their spiritual questions. She never stopped her ministry; it just took a different route. One day during a five-day high, she was pulled over by the police. She said thats when she came face to face with the mercy of God. Even though she had cocaine all over the seat of her car and a gun the officer let her go. That scare was enough to shake her up, and eventually she stopped using drugs and returned to full-time ministry as a pastor. What I love most about her story is how, even when she was high, God still used her to minister to others. She had church even when she seemed far from God. You may disagree that God can use someone who is steeped in sin, and no church should allow an adulterous or illegal drug-addicted pastor to lead them. But thats not the point Im trying to make here. Im talking about how God uses sinners (for thats what we all are) to reach other sinners with the gospel of grace, and he doesnt wait until we reach a certain level of sinlessness. Even the Apostle Paul, the greatest Christian who ever lived, called himself the chief sinner (1 Timothy 1:15). A few months ago, I came to church early and sat in the parking lot debating stuff with myself. Without a whole lot of faith, I asked God to please show up for me, telling him that I needed his mercy in my life, because without it Im toast. Frankly, I didnt expect him to answer my prayer, because I felt I didnt deserve it. But he graciously humbled himself and showed himself in so many ways, but most personally in the songs we sang: If you tarry till youre better, you will never come at all. ... Not the righteous, not the righteous; sinners Jesus came to call. ... Let not conscience RELIGION BRIEFS Netanyahu: Israel is a Jewish state WASHINGTON In a White House meeting with President Barack Obama, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reiterated his demand that Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state. At a joint press conference, Obama said he believes that with compromise on both sides, It is still possible to create two states, a Jewish state of Israel and a state of Palestine, with people living side by side in peace and security. Netanyahu responded that Obama rightly called Israel a Jewish state. The Israeli leader said Israel has been the Jewish homeland for thousands of years, and if Palestinians want recognition for a Palestinian state, they must recognize a nation state for the Jewish people. The Palestinians reject that out of hand, saying it would undermine the property claims of displaced Palestinian refugees as well as the rights of Israels Arab minority. Studio adds message to upcoming Noah film WASHINGTON National Religious Broadcasters President Jerry Johnson is thanking Paramount Pictures for adding what he calls a disclaimer to advertising for its movie Noah, starring Russell Crowe, which debuts in theaters March 28. At Johnsons request, the studio is advising filmgoers that the movie is inspired by the story of Noah, and that artistic license has been taken. But Paramount says it believes that the film is true to the essence, values, and integrity of the story from the Bibles book of Genesis. The NRB president, who previewed the film, praises its acting, production values, and faithfulness to the biblical storys main elements of sin, judgment and restoration. Johnson warns, however, that the flood appears to be punishment for mans destruction of the environment, and that Noah wonders if his own family should be the last. That said, Johnson thinks Noah is better than many of todays films, and he believes Christians can enjoy it, separate fact from fiction and pass the popcorn. Group asks Supreme Court to allow cross SAN DIEGO A veterans group has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to overrule a judges order to remove a war memorial cross from a Southern California mountain. The Mt. Soledad Memorial Association on Tuesday asked the nations highest court to allow the 43-foot cross to remain atop the mountain in San Diego. In December, U.S. District Judge Larry Burns said it must go. The veterans group and the U.S. Department of Justice already have asked the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to overrule the judge. Noahs ark project in Ky. to move forward LOUISVILLE, Ky. A Christian ministrys long-stalled plans to build Noahs Ark in the hills of Kentucky have been revived. Creation Museum founder Ken Ham says a municipal bond offering has raised enough money to begin construction on the Ark Encounter project, estimated to cost about $73 million. Groundbreaking is planned for May and the ark is expected to be finished by the summer of 2016. Ham said a high-profile evolution debate he had with Science Guy Bill Nye earlier this month helped boost support for the project. Nye said he was heartbroken and sickened for the Commonwealth of Kentucky after learning that the project would move forward. The wooden ark is to have oldworld details, such as wooden pegs instead of nails, straight-sawed timbers and plenty of animals some alive, some robotic. Nancy KennedyGRACE NOTES See KENNEDY/ Page C3 The joys of being a sinner are complex, deep Millions of Christians around the world were seen with ashes in the form of a cross on their foreheads Wednesday as they celebrated the first day of Lent. Ash Wednesday, as it is called, is 46 days before Easter, which includes six Sundays. For Christians, so begins a 40-day period of prayer and fasting, or abstaining from a particular food they like; the six Sundays during this are not included in the fasting period. Ashes are placed on the forehead as a reminder of mortality and repentance of sins. As a sign of their faith, many Christians leave them on all day.

NEWS NOTES NEWS NOTES By the time you read this, I will have flown into Washington, D.C., and back and I will be reading it with you. Each year our association, the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions, puts together a forum where all directors from across the country come to Washington to discuss with our political leaders, the items that concern us. As far as I am concerned, the United States and the way it handles it charities is one of the best in the world. Not because I work for one of them. In my opinion, for each dollar a charity receives and spends, it saves $3 of tax money our government would have to spend to perform the same charitable service, or it would not supply the service at all! On top of that, the U.S. allows us to give the charity of our choice and get a small tax break in the process. At this time in Washington, this charitable deduction is on the chopping block. Will kind people still give without the charitable deduction? Yes, but this deduction certainly helps. There are other possible changes, such as the nonprofit postage rate being eliminated (this helps us raise money for our cause) and making businesses and organizations pay for contraception, which goes against our religious beliefs. I also have a few personal ideas. I believe a rescue mission is the best tool for putting people in America back to work because we supply the housing for retraining. And, we need truly affordable housing that allows low-wage earners to live with respect and our government should consult rescue missions on how to build them. Will we make a difference? It may take a while. In the meantime, I get to spend time with fellow directors who really care about loving people and love our country. One of our ideas may gain traction on what we believe is really helping people productively and helping our nation.DuWayne Sipper is the executive director of The Path of Citrus County, a faith-based homeless shelter.Contact him at 527-6500 or Military card party to benefit CASACASA the Citrus Abuse Shelter Association will hold a Military Card Party Thursday at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 439 E.

C6SATURDAY, MARCH8, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Groucho Marx said, I never forget a face, but Ill make an exception in your case. In yesterdays deal, declarer had to establish his side suit before drawing trumps in order to make his contract. That is typically the case, but there are always exceptions to the rules, which is one of the main reasons bridge retains its popularity. In todays deal, South is in four spades. West leads the club king. How should declarer continue after ruffing the third round of clubs? When North raised spades, South re-evaluated. He had 15 high-card points and three short-suit points, two for the singleton heart and one for the doubleton club. That gave a total of 18 points. Also, his excellent diamond suit was a plus value. Hence Souths jump to game. South needs to find trumps 3-2, but that still gives him three top losers: one spade and two clubs. He must establish and run his diamond suit. Here, though, if he plays on that suit first, he will unluckily fail. After cashing his diamond ace and king, he ruffs a diamond in the dummy. However, East overruffs from only two trumps and declarer loses two spade tricks. South should start with two rounds of trumps. Then he cashes his top diamonds and ruffs a diamond. Finally, he returns to his hand with his carefully conserved heart ace and plays out winning diamonds. West may ruff whenever he pleases, but declarer still has one trump left to ruff another club. Did you notice that dummys heart king is a red-card herring? Discarding a diamond from hand would not help South to get home.

Some friends recently retired and moved to our area. Florida is a large state, and we were surprised that both of these couples (who dont know each other) chose to purchase homes within a 20mile radius of us. My husband and I are being pressured to resume these friendships, but frankly, we are not interested. When these couples email, I keep making excuses, and I dont answer the phone when they call. Its been months, and none of them has figured it out. They persist. One of these women was a childhood friend, but she is boastful and competitive, and her husband is worse. I dont have it in me to level with them. How can we stop them from calling without creating hurt feelings? Lynn in Sunny Florida Dear Sunny: Has it occurred to you that these couples may have moved to this location because they thought they had at least one friend in the area? It means they will persist until they develop new friends who occupy their time. If you are likely to run into them at shops and social events, it might be in your best interests to allow a limited friendship so you are on speaking terms. That means, you answer every fifth call or email and arrange a social engagement every few months. As they become more acclimated to their new digs, you can cut back until you reach the amount of contact you can handle. By then, your absence will be less important to them. Dear Annie: My boyfriend will be 67 in two weeks, and for the third year in a row, I will probably watch his heart break because his 90-yearold mother will not acknowledge his birthday. He has done nothing to make her feel this way. She lives in our city, but he has not seen her in more than three years. I am so afraid she will pass on before they reconcile. What would cause a woman to have no feelings for her own son? Baffled in Indianapolis Dear Baffled: We dont know, but if they havent seen each other since she was 87, there is a possibility of a decline in her mental faculties. Did she acknowledge his birthday before? Was she OK the last time he saw her? Is there a sibling, relative or friend who could intercede on his behalf? Some children call their parents on their own birthday to thank the parents for giving birth to them. Your boyfriend might try this to see whether it breaks the ice. But if nothing works, do something for his birthday that he enjoys and that will take his mind off of Mom. Dear Annie: Youve printed a lot of letters about stores carrying larger sizes. I wear a 3X. I live in a rural area, and there are no plus-size stores. I would love to drop some pounds, but due to health problems, I cant walk, and my medications tend to make me gain even though I try to eat very little. Ive tried online shopping, but the sizes are not standard. I want my local stores to carry my size. I would like to have more than four tops in my weekly rotation and a nightgown that doesnt make me feel like my grandmother Trying To Fit Dear Trying: We cannot force the stores near you to carry your size. Your best bet is to shop online. There are many places that carry your size, and if things dont fit, you can return them. Some trial and error may be necessary, but eventually, you will find an online shop that suits you.
