The FHP reported that at 8:43 p.m., a 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer driven by Codie Hannon Walters, 18, of Inverness, with passenger Michael Elliot Price, 19, of Inverness, was traveling in the left lane westbound on State Road 44 (East Gulf-toLake Highway) approaching South Dove Loop. Jeremiah Ray Windham, 36, of Inverness, driving a 2005 GMC Envoy, was traveling westbound on S.R. 44 in the left lane ahead of the Lancer. According to FHP, when the Lancer overtook the Envoy, Walters failed to slow and avoid the slower moving vehicle. As a result, the front of the Lancer impacted the rear of the Envoy. The collision caused Windham to lose control of the Envoy, which overturned while entering the center median. Windham was ejected as the Envoy overturned, and died at the scene of the crash, FHP reported. Walters had no injuries. Price had minor injuries treated at Citrus Memorial hospital, according to the report. The accident remains under investigation.

From staff reports Dozens attend hurricane training MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerIf you couldnt get a government official on the phone last week, theres a reason: Many were in Maryland attending a Federal Emergency Management Agency intensive weeklong training for hurricane recovery activities. In total, 70 officials all but a handful were government employees attended the FEMA Emergency Management Institutes course in Emmitsburg, 45 miles outside Baltimore. FEMA picked up the cost of the institute and will reimburse participants for their airfare. Attendees said they stayed in college-type dormitories and ate their meals in a makeshift tent because the facilitys dining room was being renovated. The training was specific to Citrus County and focused on the aftermath of a major hurricane hitting the Citrus coast. They put us through a whole scenario, like we were truly in a recovery phase, county spokeswoman Tobey Phillips said. I got to know the people I would be working with and how I can help them.

See TRAINING/ Page A2 Sailing into history AMY KINGERY/Special to the ChronicleThe Spirit, a replica of a Civil-War era scow, sails Saturday on the Crystal River. After more than two years of volunteer-driven handiwork, the scow was christened this past October. Volunteers also kept to the spirit of the times by using tools relevant to the period. The boat measured 36 feet long and 12 feet wide when it was lowered into the Crystal River, but it still needed sails. The sails have now been added and it made its first trial run on Saturday. Scows were the workhorses of the shipping industry from the middle centuries and into the 1900s.They mainly are based on the design of the old Dutch sailing boats of the 1500s. The boats subsequently became useful in the New World, where they would be laden with stacks of goods to ply the waters. During the Civil War, scows were reportedly effective in breaking through the blockade of the South. Spirit is expected to be moored as an educational exhibit at the Crystal River Preserve State Park. The group continues to raise funds for the volunteer-driven project and have been posting regular updates on their Facebook page. For information about the project or to make a donation, go to www.tsca.net/ CRBB, or visit the group on Facebook at Crystal River Boat Builders.

Other attendees included those who represented the city of Crystal River, Southwest Florida Water Management District, Nature Coast EMS and the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce. Training was geared toward the days and weeks following Hurricane Whiteout, which would flood coastal homes, knock out power to thousands and render Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center unable to treat patients. The entire training was run as if everything was real, Citrus Memorial Health System spokeswoman Katie Mehl said. When theres only one emergency room because the other one is flooded, what do you do? Lt. Chris Evan, deputy director of emergency operations, said the training was designed to make things as realistic as possible. There was much problem solving. For example, he said, FEMA no longer wants to provide mobile homes as temporary housing for people flooded out of their homes. Instead, the agency will look to local communities to provide housing from its stock of available homes that are in foreclosure or otherwise vacant. The idea was to think outside the box, Evan said. Evan said he would expect participants to begin writing plans for their various agencies or organizations based on the institutes training. Were going to have further meetings, further discussions, he said. Phillips, who is new to the role as public information officer, said she found the training valuable. There were quite a few people who were new to their positions, she said. We created a lot of plans to work together back home. We found out some resources we were not aware of. It spurred all of us to work together.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.

He explained to detectives that he does not make any purchases over the Internet or pay any bills online because he is legally blind. The victim further stated that the only person who has his bank information is his daughter who currently resides in Michigan. More charges, including an online payment for $267.29 to Duke Energy, an online payment of $83.98 to Dish Network, a payment of $199.33 to Leader Insurance, a $48 payment to Dominos Pizza, and numerous small payments to Google were also made beginning on Feb. 9 and continuing until the end of the month. The charges total $1,399.13 to date. Because the victim had not yet received his March statement, he was unable to verify if more charges were pending, and is unable to view his account online due to his limited vision. The victims first signal that something was amiss happened when he awoke a little more than a month ago to find that someone had tampered with his wallet during the night. The wallet, which was kept in a drawer, was carefully organized to make things easier to see and when he found it, the contents were in disarray. Shortly after that, Bank of America called to confirm a possible purchase made with the card for $103 to a Hong Kong business. After telling the bank he had not made the purchase, they assured him the matter would be taken care of. It wasnt until he received his statement that the victim realized that charge had just been the tip of the iceberg. Deputies honed in on Brannen as the prime suspect. She had been in the victims home and had repeatedly asked him for money after she had been paid $600 to do a painting job for him. The PayPal account that had been using the debit card reportedly belonged to Brannen, and all items purchased were shipped to Brannens address. The Dominos Pizza had been ordered online and was delivered to Brannens address, where she forged the victims name when signing for the pizza. When confronted by deputies, Brannen reportedly denied that she had used the victims card without his knowledge and stated he had offered to pay her bills. She also reportedly stated that a neighbor had been there when the victim gave her permission to use his card and she could verify the information. However, when deputies questioned the neighbor, they heard a different story. Reports stated the neighbor said she not only had never heard the victim give permission to use his card, but she too had problems with Brannen trying to scam her out of money. Brannens bond was set at $11,000. ARRESTContinued from Page A1 When confronted by deputies, Brannen reportedly denied that she had used the victims card without his knowledge ... State unemployment drops to 6.1 percent Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Floridas unemployment rate dropped slightly in January, although the actual number of jobs shrank, according to new data released Monday. The mixed results did not stop Gov. Rick Scott from touting the latest numbers as he focused on the steady recovery of the states economy. It is clear were making a positive impact on businesses and families in Florida, Scott said in a statement. We are creating an opportunity economy where businesses can continue to grow. Scott has made the rebound in the states economy a centerpiece of his re-election campaign this year. He has noted in campaign speeches that the unemployment rate increased under former Gov. Charlie Crist. Crist, who is now a Democrat and challenging Scott, has said Florida suffered because of the economic downturn that affected most of the nation and world. The states unemployment rate dropped to 6.1 percent, which was lower than it was at the end of the year. The rate remains below the national average of 6.6 percent. There are an estimated 581,000 Floridians out of work. Despite the overall rate dropping slightly by 0.2 percent, the overall number of jobs in the state dropped by 2,600. The number of jobs is calculated using a separate survey. Kevin Cate, a spokesman for Crist, noted the decline to jobs to blast Scott for desperately attempting to take credit for a recovery thats more anemic than what the economy was already predicted to do on its own. Florida overall has added nearly 193,000 jobs in the last year. Thats the third highest in the nation, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Florida trailed Texas and California. Monroe County in the southern end of the state had the states lowest unemployment rate at 3.8 percent, followed by Walton County in the Panhandle at 4.2 percent. Hendry County, in the southern interior, had the highest unemployment rate at 9.8 percent, followed by Flagler County in northeast Florida at 9.3 percent. COUNTY STATS The January unemployment rate for Citrus County w as 7.5 percent, the lowest since 8.0 percent in June 2008. Citrus Countys labor force increased by 962 during the month to 55,962, the n umber of employed rose by 612 to 51,775 and the number of those without jobs increased by 350 to 4,187. The unemployment rate in January 2013 was 9.8 percent when there were 5,484 unemployed. State BRIEFS Stand Your Ground tweak moves through committeeTALLAHASSEE A Florida Senate committee has approved a bill that tweaks the states controversial stand your ground law. The adjustments include local law enforcement setting guidelines for neighborhood watch organizations, clarifying immunity and who can use a stand your ground defense and allowing law enforcement to conduct its investigation even when stand your ground is being used. The bill is co-sponsored by Sen. David Simmons, R-Altamonte Springs, and Sen. Christopher Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale. The bill has now been approved by two Senate committees and must go through two more before it reaches the floor. The Community Affairs committee is the next stop. The legislation passed unanimously Monday, despite being a topic that traditionally splits down party lines. The NRA, represented by Marion Hammer, even supported the changes.Delta flight loses piece of wing, lands safelyORLANDO A Delta flight from Orlando, Fla., landed safely in Atlanta after declaring an emergency because a part of the planes wing was missing.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The head of the Florida Democratic Party is contending that Republican Gov. Rick Scotts campaign broke the states campaign finance laws by shifting money between accounts. Election law complaints can be routine during an election year, but this one could be significant: If confirmed, it could result in a fine of as much as $82 million. Allison Tant, who is the chairwoman of the state party, filed the complaint with the Florida Elections Commission late last week, naming both Scott and his political committee Lets Get to Work. The complaint maintains that the campaign broke the law when the Scott campaign transferred nearly $27.4 million from one type of campaign account to another earlier this month. They have violated the law and the governor is supposed to uphold the law, Tant said. Republican Party of Florida chairman Lenny Curry defended Scotts campaign organization. Lets Get to Work is confident that they have done everything according to the standards of Florida election law, Curry said in a statement. Scott first set up Lets Get to Work back in 2010 as a way to help out his campaign for governor when he was challenging a Republican who had the backing of many GOP leaders. It was set up as an electioneering communication organization, which is allowed to take unlimited contributions but is subject to limits on how it can spend the money. These types of political organizations can run television ads as long as they dont use the words vote for or vote against. Scott kept Lets Get to Work intact after his victorious election in 2010, and since the summer of 2011 he has raised millions for the organization. The governor has accepted checks from a long list of prominent business and political heavyweights.. On March 6, John French, the chairman of Lets Get to Work, told the state his organization was being disbanded as an electioneering communication organization. On the same day, a new political committee with the same name was formed, and the old organization gave a nearly $27.4 million check to the new one. Under a new law passed last year by legislators, political committees have more flexibility over how they can spend money.Around theSTATE Citrus CountyMills to address political groupBarbara Mills of Operation Welcome Home will speak at noon today at the Womens Political Network of Citrus County meeting at Joes Family Restaurant in Inverness.

A Seminole County Sheriffs deputy stopped the 16-year-old on Saturday as he was driving in a silver Impala with blue police lights. Deputies said the teen was wearing a shirt that had police on it.

From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3TUESDAY, MARCH 18, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE SEANARNOLD CorrespondentTwo homeless men went on a crime spree that netted a few cartons of cigarettes, but landed them in jail. Daniel Romano, 51, and Carrington Thompson, 23, were both charged with three counts of felony burglary to an unoccupied structure early Monday morning after allegedly attempting to break into three different businesses. According to arrest reports, the pair first attempted to break in to Denis Food Mart in Hernando. An alarm alerted deputies that there had been a possible break-in with glass breakage. Deputies found a red brick in front of the building and a mark on the window that indicated someone had attempted to throw the brick to break the glass but had been unsuccessful. While still investigating the case, a second alarm went off just down the street at the Hernando Dollar General store. Surveillance tapes of the area showed a white van pulling up near the food mart, then leaving the area shortly after the alarm sounded. Deputies put out a BOLO alert for the van and were still investigating the tapes when a third alarm came in, this time at the Shell gas station in Inverness, where multiple cartons of 305 cigarettes were reported stolen after someone threw a cinder block through the door. A deputy spotted the van and detained Romano, who was driving, and Thompson, a passenger. The two reportedly confessed to the burglaries and multiple cartons of cigarettes were found in the van. The pair was taken to the Citrus County Detention Facility where both men spoke with deputies. Romano reportedly stated that he would drive Thompson around and pick stores to burglarize so that they could sell items to get money for drugs. Arrest records showed that Thompson claimed that he was on a threeday crack binge and that earlier in the afternoon Romano took him to the Winn-Dixie in Inverness and advised him to steal shrimp and king crab. Thompson said while exiting the store he got caught, dropped the items and ran. Records indicated there had been a shoplifting attempt earlier in the evening, but no charges had been filed. Thompson reportedly went on to say that Romano would select the stores to burglarize and drop him off then pick him up a few minutes later. During the burglary to the Dollar General store, he said the cigarette case fell on him when he attempted to take the cigarettes and he panicked and left the store empty handed. During the burglary of the Shell Station, Thompson said Romano had requested he get premium cigarette brands, but he was unable to locate them and took the 305 brand instead. Both of the men had their bail set at $15,000. Daniel Romano Carrington Thompson Two arrested after break-ins Retired Navy Commander Sean Cushing landed an L-39 Albatros jet at the Crystal River Airport on Saturday evening on a stopover to visit his parents, Robin and Karen Cushing. He was picking up the craft from the Tampa area, where it was in for maintenance. Cushing is a graduate of the Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor program, more widely known as Top Gun. He was stationed on several aircraft carriers and was a commander of the Fleet Area Control and Surveillance Facility, Virginia Capes. A veteran fighter pilot of the war in Iraq, he retired from the Navy in 2013 after 20 years of service. Cushing now works for Combined Aerospace Technologies and is in charge of a fleet of seven unique aircraft used in specialty flight training, equipment testing and rides. Additionally, he is president and CEO of both Zach Ryan Enterprises and 757 Adventures.STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the Chronicle Visit in style SEANARNOLD CorrespondentCitrus County deputies Saturday shut down a methamphetamine cook lab on Riverbend Road west of Dunnellon. Deputies arrested Dennis Maita Jr. March 15 for multiple felonies, including possession with intent to sell methamphetamine, and possession of listed material with the intent to manufacture methamphetamine, along with a misdemeanor charge for drug paraphernalia. His bond is set at $150,500. Deputies became aware of the cook location when a complaint filed with DCF warned of a potential meth lab in a home where a child was present. When deputies escorted DCF to the site, they spotted chemicals used in the manufacturing of methamphetamines, along with a one-pot methamphetamine cook. Maita was reportedly honest with deputies and told them where to find various items used to cook the meth. He also signed a consent form to search the premises. Items found in the home included liquid Drano, an HCI generator, the one-pot methamphetamine cook, and a purple lunch box containing lye, homemade funnels and containers, and ammonia nitrate. Garbage from the manufacturing process was also found in a garbage bag in the bedroom. Outside of the home, deputies found a burn pile containing battery casings and binder from previous one pots. Multiple firearms were also found at the home, and when deputies checked the serial numbers, one of the firearms came back as stolen from a Citrus County burglary case. During questioning, Maita reportedly said he had lived in the home approximately two weeks and during that time he had cooked four to six times. He also said he did not have the child present during the cooks and would take him to the neighbors while cooking methamphetamine. Maita reportedly said he had last cooked on March 13 and had produced approximately 1.5 grams.

Fred Schneider said he stopped eating crustaceans at age 4 after going crabbing with family in New Jersey and watching them boiled alive. The lifelong vegetarian said in video narrated for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals that he views crabs and lobsters not as seafood but as sea life. Schneider got the idea for Rock Lobster when a projector displayed images including lobsters on a grill at an Atlanta disco. He said he thought, Rock this, rock that... rock lobster! The band jammed on the title and the song was born. The bands other hits include Love Shack and Roam.Jaggers girlfriend found hangedNEW YORK LWren Scott, a fashion designer and celebrity stylist who was MickJaggers girlfriend, was found dead in Manhattan on Monday in what was being investigated as an apparent suicide. Scotts assistant found her at 10 a.m. Monday; no note was found and there was no sign of foul play, police said. Her spokesperson requested privacy for her family and friends. Mick Jaggers representative said the singer was completely shocked and devastated by the news. The pair had been dating since 2001. Scott, who was adopted by Mormon parents and raised in Roy, Utah, had her own fashion label popular with celebrities.

West entered the plea through his attorney and did not attend the court hearing. He was sentenced to two years of probation, 24 anger management therapy sessions and 250 hours of community service. The rapper did not reach a civil settlement with the paparazzo, and his plea cannot be used against him in a civil lawsuit. West was charged with misdemeanor counts of battery and grand theft after an altercation at LAX with photographer Daniel Ramos in July. Ramos claimed West punched him in an unprovoked attack and wrestled his camera to the ground during the scuffle. Ramos is suing West and attended Mondays hearing accompanied by his lawyer, Gloria Allred.

Scott Asheton, 64DRUMMERNEW YORK Scott Asheton, drummer for the influential punk rock band the Stooges, has died. He was 64. Publicist Michele Adler confirmed Monday that Asheton died Saturday. No other details were provided. Bandleader Iggy Pop posted on his Facebook page Sunday that hes never heard anyone play the drums with more meaning than Scott Asheton. Asheton was part of the Stooges when they formed in 1967 in Ann Arbor, Mich. His older brother, Ron Asheton, who was the groups guitarist, died in 2009. The Stooges released their self-titled debut in 1969. Asheton suffered from undisclosed illnesses in 2011 and was unable to perform at summer music festivals in Europe with the Stooges. Asheton was born on Aug. 16, 1949, in Washington, D.C. He played drums for other bands, including Sonics Rendezvous Band, the group led by former MC5 guitarist Fred Sonic Smith.Rachel Bunny Mellon, 103UPPERVILLE, Va. Rachel Bunny Mellon, the deeply private and profoundly wealthy centenarian, has died at her estate in Virginia. She was 103. Her longtime personal attorney Alexander Forger said from his office in New York City that Mellon died of natural causes Monday at her 4,000-acre horse farm in Upperville. After spending most of her life trying to avoid the spotlight, she was thrust into it when Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards was indicted in 2011 for using what prosecutors alleged was campaign money, including $750,000 from Mellon, to hide his mistress Rielle Hunter and their child during his 2008 presidential bid. Friends said Mellon should be remembered more for her contributions to the world of horticulture, art and fashion. Lorraine Brown, 86MADISON, VA.Lorraine S. Brown, 86, passed away Friday, March 14, 2014, at Autumn Care of Madison, Va. Lorraine was preceded in death by her parents, Irving and Esther W.

She also entered prize-winning begonias and other houseplants in the Philadelphia Flower Show. An interest in hybridizing daylilies led to her membership in the American Hemerocallis Society, as well. Both she and Bob loved dogs and owned a succession of them. Their first was a boxer, named Buffy. Then they discovered Norwegian elkhounds and owned first Thor, then Smokey, and finally Meggie, who accompanied them when they retired and moved to Crystal River, Fla. Lorraines green thumb flourished there, as she grew hibiscus, orchids, bougainvillea and huge Christmas cacti. In 2006 Alzheimers disease began to make daily life difficult and dangerous for her, so she moved to her daughters home in Charlottesville, Va., then to assisted living at RoseWood Village, and finally to full nursing care at Autumn Care of Madison, Va.

Obituaries From wire reports DeathsELSEWHERE Composer of Man of La Mancha dies Associated PressNEW YORK Mitch Leigh, a successful advertising jingle writer whose debut attempt at writing music for a Broadway show became the instant, celebrated hit Man of La Mancha and earned him a Tony Award, has died. He was 86. Leigh died Sunday in New York of pneumonia and complications from a stroke, said his assistant, Lisa Maldonado. A memorial was held Monday afternoon in Manhattan and Broadway marquees will dim in his honor for one minute at 7:45 p.m. Wednesday. Man of La Mancha, with a book by Dale Wasserman and lyrics by Joe Darion (after W.H. Auden dropped out), won five Tony Awards, ran for more than 2,000 performances, and was translated into a dozen languages. Leigh followed up his early theatrical success by producing and directing for the Broadway stage, including a 1985 production of The King and I with Yul Brynner in which he earned a best director Tony nomination, but never reached the dizzying heights he did with Man of the Mancha in 1965. Mitch Leigh was a multi-faceted talent whether he was composing, directing, or producing for Broadway or Madison Avenue, said Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of the Broadway League. He also produced The Gershwins Fascinating Rhythm in 1999, supplied the music for Aint Broadway Grand in 1993, produced Chu Chem, billed as the first Chinese-Jewish musical in 1989, and backed a 1983 revival of Mame with Angela Lansbury. Born Irwin Michnick in the Brooklyn borough of New York in 1928, Leigh was a childhood fan of Benny Goodman, served in the Army and went to Yale University for his bachelors and masters degrees, studying under Paul Hindemith. He is survived by his wife, the artist Abby Leigh, their two children, David and Rebecca, and a son, Andy, from a previous marriage.
students will be required to take a year from now. I feel very confident that it is the best choice for Floridas students and the assessment is going to measure their progress and achievement on Florida standards, Stewart said. Stewarts decision to approve the $220 million contract with American Institutes for Research marks yet another significant step toward the states transition away from the FCAT, which has drawn both praise and scorn for the way it transformed the states public schools. The new tests will include more than the multiple-choice questions that are a framework for many standardized tests, including the FCAT. The commissioner also said Monday that students will use paper and pencil to complete the tests initially, but that schools will gradually transition to online tests. In a letter sent to principals Monday, Stewart said students will be asked to create graphs, interact with test content and and write and respond in different ways than they would on traditional tests. She added that the new questions will assess higher order thinking skills that are part of the higher expectations included in the states new standards. Former Gov. Jeb Bush made the FCAT the centerpiece of his A-throughF school grading system. Test results were not only used to evaluate schools but also to determine whether third-graders should be held back and whether high school students were ready to graduate. Debate over the FCAT even triggered a change in state law over when the school year would start. The new test, which still does not have a name, will be based on a new set of standards that are based largely on the contentious Common Core State Standards. Florida officials tweaked the math and English standards earlier this year to include such items as a requirement for cursive writing. But this change has not ended the backlash against Common Core. Florida was initially part of a national consortium developing a Common Core test, but the state pulled out of the Partnership for Assessment of College and Career Readiness at the urging of Gov. Rick Scott and legislative leaders. The group selected Monday has ties to a different national consortium that developing its own Common Core test but Stewart insisted the new test will be Floridaspecific. She did note, however, that the type of questions used on the test were being tried out first this year in the state of Utah. Randy Osborne, who works with the group Florida Parents Against Common Core, called the new testing vendor an evil twin to the previous group the state worked with. We can call it what we want, call it what we may, Osborne said. We can call it Florida standards. I call it putting lipstick on a pig. When Florida first adopted Common Core standards, one of the arguments in its favor was that it would allow parents to compare how Florida students compared to students in other states. Stewart, however, said that there would be advantages to the new test, including that it would take less time than the one developed by the national consortium and could be given later in the school year.

Also over the course of the 10-day event, three motorcyclists died in crashes and about three motorcycles were reported stolen. Itll be like an incredibly low number of motorcycles stolen, Chitwood said. When theres this many people here someones going to act like a knucklehead, but really, no major things to report. Daniel Myara, who owns Cruisin Caf at the corner of Main Street and Atlantic Avenue, said bad weather all over the United States gave lots of people a reason to head south for Bike Week.

Its Hard To Stop A Trane HEATING & AIR CONDITIONING, INC. 4581 S. Florida Ave. Inverness, FL 34450 (352) 726-5845 On the media buffet, people still seek meaty news Associated PressWASHINGTON Americans of all ages still pay heed to serious news even as they seek out the lighter stuff, choosing their own way across a media landscape that no longer relies on front pages and evening newscasts to dictate whats worth knowing, according to a new study from the Media Insight Project. The findings burst the myth of the media bubble the idea that no one pays attention to anything beyond a limited sphere of interest, like celebrities or college hoops or Facebook posts. This idea that somehow were all going down narrow paths of interest and that many people are just sort of amusing themselves to death and not interested in the news and the world around them? That is not the case, said Tom Rosenstiel, executive director of the American Press Institute, which teamed with the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research on the project. People today are nibbling from a news buffet spread across 24-hour television, websites, radio, newspapers and magazines, and social networks. Three-fourths of Americans see or hear news daily, including 6 of 10 adults under age 30, the study found. Nearly everyone about 9 in 10 people said they enjoy keeping up with the news. And more than 6 in 10 say that wherever they find the news, they prefer it to come directly from a news organization. The study found relatively few differences by age, political leanings or wealth when it comes to the topics people care about. Traffic and weather are nearly universal interests. Majorities express interest in natural disasters, local news, politics, the economy, crime and foreign coverage. With so many sources and technologies, 60 percent of Americans say its easier to keep up than it was just five years ago. But at the same time, Jane Hall, an associate professor of journalism at American University, said no one is setting the national news agenda the way The New York Timesand network evening news once did. I do lament those times in which something could become so important that we all watched, Hall said. But that doesnt mean we arent all engaged now. If youre under 30, the future of news is in your hands, literally. Three out of four young adults who carry cellphones use them to check the news. Most owners of tablet computers also use them to get updates; young people are the ones most likely to have tablets. But the young think of news differently than previous generations did, said Rachel Davis Mersey, an associate professor at Northwesterns Medill School of Journalism. Their broader definition includes anything happening right now, whether its sports or entertainment or politics. We dont see young people thinking of it as a civic obligation to keep up with news, Mersey said. We see young people including news as part of a very complex, very diverse, very large media diet that includes a diversity of sources, a diversity of platforms and really goes 24/7. The Media Insight Project study found 20somethings likelier to follow up when they hear something big is happening. Theyre the sort of ondemand news generation, Rosenstiel said. Americans get that first word an assortment of ways. Traditional news operations still dominate, but word of mouth, email and text messages, Facebook and Twitter, and electronic news alerts also come into play. Most people said they have more confidence in a story when they get it directly from a news-gathering operation. But their media habit doesnt include paying for it only about a fourth have paid subscriptions.

Americans of all ages still pay heed to serious news even as they seek out the lighter stuff, choosing their own way across a media landscape that no longer relies on front pages and evening newscasts to dictate what's worth knowing, according to a new study from the Media Insight Project.

Texas makes final push for health insurance enrollment Associated PressHOUSTON Sara Rodriguez recently received a $4,000 bill for a six-hour emergency room visit to treat a fever. She says she cant pay, but shes also not planning to buy health insurance through the new federal marketplace. Rodriguez, like others gathered in a Houston gymnasium listening to a presentation about the health care overhaul, says she cant afford insurance, even for $50 a month. With two young children and barely $400 of income a month after paying rent, she struggles to feed her family. Its the law, but Im not interested, the 27-yearold says, explaining that she attended the presentation only because her GED teacher is making her write an essay. I cannot afford it. The presentation ends and Rodriguez grabs her belongings and rushes out, forgoing the opportunity to make an appointment for enrollment assistance. The crowd of about 200 quickly dwindles, with some stragglers lingering to schedule appointments. As a March 31 deadline draws near, this is a daily reality in Texas, where nearly 1 in 4 residents is uninsured, the highest rate in the nation. Texas stands out among the nations four most populous states for lagging behind on signups. California, New York and Florida have signed up far more people. Enrollment helpers here are working days on end, sometimes with no time off, as they make a final push to get people to buy policies.
Yellen to put Feds new leadership on displayWASHINGTON The Janet Yellen era at the Federal Reserve begins in earnest this week with a two-day meeting, a policy statement and fresh economic forecasts. Yet all that will be a prelude to the marquee event: Yellens first news conference as Fed chair. The financial world will be parsing every word for any hint of a policy shift.Vodafone agrees to buy Spains Ono for $10 billionLONDON British telecommunications company Vodafone agreed on Monday to buy Spains Ono for 7.2 billion euros ($10 billion) as it seeks to expand operations across Europe. The deal is part of a broader trend of mergers and takeovers in Europe, where the mobile industry is split among some 150 major operators crisscrossing national lines, compared to just four in the United States. Grupo Corporativo Ono S.A. provides phone, mobile and television services to 1.9 million customers and has the largest next-generation network in Spain, reaching 7.2 million homes, or 41 percent of the country. Vodafone says Ono has abundant spare capacity, giving it space to expand.Nakamoto hires lawyer in Newsweek bitcoin fightLOS ANGELES The man Newsweek claimed is the creator of bitcoin has hired a lawyer in an attempt to clear his name, repeating a denial he made to The Associated Press more than a week ago that he has never had anything to do with the digital currency. In a statement issued by his lawyer, Ethan Kirschner, Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto said Monday that he did not create, invent or otherwise work on bitcoin. In the magazines return to print this month after more than a year, Newsweeks cover story declared Nakamoto to be the face behind bitcoin. Despite the repeated denials, the magazine has stood behind the story. Nakamoto, 64, did not say whether he plans to sue the magazine.Yahoo stock surges in anticipation of Alibaba IPOSAN FRANCISCO Yahoo is benefiting once again from its stake in Chinas hottest Internet company, Alibaba Group. Investors latched on to Yahoo on Monday in anticipation of a huge windfall from Alibabas initial public offering of stock later this year. Yahoos stock gained $1.51, or 4 percent, to close at $39.11. Alibaba ignited the excitement about its forthcoming IPO by announcing plans to list its stock on a U.S. exchange. Yahoo Inc. is expected to sell about half its 24 percent stake in Alibaba as part of an IPO that analysts believe could raise $15 billion. That means Yahoo is likely to collect several billion dollars from AIibabas IPO. That money could then be used to pay a special dividend to shareholders or buy back more of its stock.Eurozone inflation in surprise fall to 0.7 percentLONDON Pressure on the European Central Bank to do more to prevent prices from falling in the 18-country eurozone ratcheted up Monday after figures showed inflation across the region unexpectedly fell in February to its lowest level since October. Figures released Monday by the Eurostat statistics agency showed consumer prices were 0.7 percent higher in February than the year before. That was lower than the 0.8 percent initial estimate and took the annual rate down to the level it was in October, which was the lowest level since late 2009.

Stocks ended sharply higher, helped by a report that showed factory output rebounded last month. The Dow Jones industrial average added 181.55 points, or 1.1 percent, to 16,247.22. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 17.70 points, or 1 percent, to 1,858.83 and the Nasdaq composite rose 34.55 points, or 0.8 percent, to 4,279.95. The markets gains were broad. All 30 members of the Dow and all 10 industry groups of the S&P 500 rose. Technology stocks were among the biggest gainers, led by Yahoo, which rose 4 percent. Yahoo owns a quarter of the Chinese ecommerce website AliBaba, which announced plans to go public in the U.S. While relatively unknown in the U.S., AliBaba is one of the worlds mosttrafficked websites in the worlds second-largest economy. Yahoo rose $1.51 to $39.11. Other tech stocks also rose, including Microsoft, Google and Amazon. Mondays advance comes after stocks spent much of last week in retreat. The major indexes fell roughly 2 percent, their worst week since January, on concerns that the tensions between Ukraine and Russia could boil over. Those tensions are no closer to being resolved, but so far armed conflict does not appear to be in the cards. Crimeans overwhelmingly voted Sunday in favor of Crimea breaking away from Ukraine to return to Russia. While destabilizing to Ukraine, the results were what investors and international observers widely expected. More importantly, the controversial vote, while widely considered illegitimate by the international community, happened without any major violence. Russia got what it wanted without having to take Crimea by force, said Sam Stovall, chief equity strategist with S&P Capital IQ. Both the White House and the European Union announced sanctions and visa restrictions against several Russian officials as a result of the referendum. The U.S. imposed sanctions on seven Russian government officials, as well as four Ukrainians, including former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. The EU slapped travel bans and asset freezes on 21 people from Russia and Crimea. With the Crimean vote behind them, U.S. investors exited their traditional safe havens to return to riskier parts of the market. Bond prices fell, pushing the yield of 10-year Treasury note up to 2.70 percent from 2.66 percent Friday. The price of gold fell modestly.

OPINION Page A10TUESDAY, MARCH 18, 2014 An open letter to Gov. ScottEditors note: The following letter was sent to Florida Gov. Rick Scott and copied to state Sen. Charlie Dean.Dear Gov. Scott, I am sure you are not aware of the fact that trailers of almost any type, from small box trailers to large horse and boat trailers (lighter than 2,000 pounds), are a thiefs dream in the state of Florida. For example, I had my several thousand dollar boat trailer stolen. The thief does not even need to part it out. They simply take it to a weigh station, have it weighed, and bring the weightslip to the Department of Motor Vehicles, tell them he built the trailer himself, where upon he is given a new title and VIN. The agent is not even required to go outside and look at the trailer. It may still say Loadrite or some other manufacturers name on the side. Still, the thief gets a new title. Everyone I have talked with about this the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, boat dealers, and even an agent in the Department of Motor Vehicles thinks it is a very stupid system. Please Gov. Scott, you seem to be the only one that is able to change and correct this problem. Everyone else, all of the people I talked to, said thats just the way it is, I cant change the law. Well maybe they cant and maybe I cant either. However, I am sure going to try. I am starting with you sir. I simply ask that you track down the fuzzy thinking liberals responsible for this mess and put a stop to some of the theft in our state.William Roche Crystal RiverDont cut military spendingWould someone tell me why this country of ours is cutting the military? The military should always be up and ready. I have an idea. Why dont government employees cut their pay? This way we can have a strong military. Now that we are cutting the military the country will be weak. Is that a smart move to make? What do you all think about that? This country is not seeing the big picture until it is too late. What if and when we need the military at some point, what will we do? As a result we are going to leave ourselves wide open for all kinds of attacks in the future. Wake up America. It is time to fight for what you believe in. How many of you get involved with what is going on? Or do you think the government is going to do right by the American people? Think again. We are waiting for something big to happen before we act. By then it is far too late to do anything. Lets not forget what these men and women fought for us to keep this country safe. Who is taking care of then now? The military should always be strong. Cuts should never be an option. What happened to the America we once knew? Anna DeRose Lecanto Every year we are subjected to lists. Forbes magazine lists the worlds wealthiest individuals. Time magazine lists the most influential people, though real influence is difficult to define or quantify. What Ive never seen is a list of satisfied people, much less stories about how they attained satisfaction. Arianna Huffington is trying to fill that gap. One of the worlds biggest Type A personalities, Huffington, who launched The Huffington Post in 2005 and whose picture appears alongside celebrities, politicians and business icons, is now asking a question popularized in an old song by the late Peggy Lee: Is that all there is? In her latest book, Thrive: The Third Metric for Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom and Wonder, Huffington says her definition of success began to change after a fall in her Los Angeles home in 2007, caused she says, by exhaustion and a lack of sleep. She re-thought the meaning of a good life and found it to be something quite different from how it is portrayed by pop culture. The pursuit of money and power, she writes, didnt satisfy after she had acquired a considerable amount of each. In fact, she says, these twin demons harm bodies, minds and relationships: There are still millions desperately looking for the next promotion, the next million-dollar payday that they believe will satisfy their longing to feel better about themselves, or silence their dissatisfaction. One sentence I quickly underlined: Have you noticed that when we die, our eulogies celebrate our lives very differently from the way society defines success? Its true. Think of the number of funerals youve attended. How many of the eulogizers say the departed one wished he had made one more phone call, or closed one more deal? Part of this and I believe it to be a large part is that culture, including the media, are less focused on people with good character qualities and work habits. The White House staffer is lauded for working 18-hour days and weekends. Working harder too often means working longer, as if the two are equal. I recall a prominent ex-network newsman who was once denied the anchor chair because management didnt like him taking a little time off to watch his sons baseball games. He didnt get the anchor chair, but he has the love and respect of his son. Which is of greater value and pays more dividends? Its not that Huffingtons conclusions about life and what matters most havent been written about before. As she points out, the ancient Greeks debated these things centuries ago and one can always consult such books as Ecclesiastes, whose author reminds us, Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income. (5:10) There is also the story of the Prodigal Son who wasted his inheritance on riotous living and finally came to his senses. Every generation has had individuals who call upon people to push the pause button, or even the stop button. Unfortunately there is no rewind to life. But we can start over from where we are. In Thrive, Huffington, who is at the top of her game, offers an off ramp to those headed at top speed in the wrong direction. I am regularly reminded of what truly matters from the mouths of children. This past weekend, my 3-year-old granddaughter looked up from her dinner plate and spontaneously said, I love you, Poppa. It takes the investment of time to earn that kind of love. No boss can give it; no career can satisfy like the love of a child, as yet uncorrupted by the world. Thrive isnt about giving up. Its about priorities and true satisfaction. It can improve any life.Readers may email Cal Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In this case it refers to the platted but unbuilt stub out of roadway at the end of Oak Village Boulevard in Sugarmill Woods. The original plan was to build out that 213-foot road segment to the Hernando County line to serve anticipated new homes, but neither the subdivision nor the road segment was ever built. Now a developer has applied to the countys Land Development Division for a permit to construct that roadway, something the county says it must grant if the road is built to county standards. In the normal way of things, this would never come before the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). However, Oak Village residents are disturbed at the idea that Oak Village Boulevard could become a throughway for a new subdivision, which is what the developer said he ultimately wants to do. The issue could come before the BOCC if the residents file an action to vacate that street segment. When Sugarmill Woods residents showed up at the last BOCC meeting to talk about this issue, three commissioners recused themselves on the basis of conflicts of interest Joe Meek because his father has done building projects with the developer, John JJ Kenney because he lives in Oak Village and Rebecca Bays because she has sold insurance to the developer. When those three exited the commission chambers, just two commissioners remained to take comments from residents. We applaud elected officials who steer clear of impropriety or conflicts of interest and that would include participating in decisions that could benefit them personally, especially when they do it publicly and transparently. In this instance, however, these commissioners probably welcomed the opportunity to avoid having to handle such a hot-potato issue, especially in an election year. If the stub out does end up at the BOCC level and there is an insufficient number of commissioners to hear it, the county may engage a special master from this or another governmental district to preside. We hope it doesnt get to that point. We agree with Commissioner Kenney who convened a meeting of Sugarmill Woods and Oak Village leaders with the developer that mediating is better than litigating. Kudos to Kenney for being proactive and encouraging stakeholders to explore together alternatives acceptable to all concerned. Its important to avoid disrupting existing neighborhoods if possible, while providing for access to new neighborhoods. Were not hearing much from the meetings because, as Kenney said, he wants to avoid upsetting the apple cart. But we urge this group to figure things out, and quickly, before the legal system becomes part of the conversation.

They were also most considerate and consoling when we picked up our pets remains. The lovely card was a thoughtful gesture, as losing our beloved pet is like losing a member of the family.Could have used moneyIf the county had collected the lease money from AmeriGas, we could have had a couple of more good boat ramps. I think most boaters would agree lake access in Citrus County is inadequate during the winter months when all the snowbirds are down here.Sidewalks not needed on U.S. 19I read in the paper that the people of Sugarmill Woods want sidewalks installed on (U.S.) 19 so they can ride their bicycles to Walmart. Where they really need sidewalks is on Grover Cleveland Boulevard. I see mothers pushing carriages with babies along the side of the road every day. It is very dangerous, as the speed limit is 50 mph. Please plan sidewalks for Grover Cleveland.Medians annoyingBeing a snowbird from Pennsylvania, the medians down here on the highway are very confusing. I have been told by many people there are no rules or no regulations regarding the right of way or whatever may happen coming on and off of them. And I just dont understand why there are no rules and everybody I talk to says there never will be I feel personally if everybody would go onto a median on the right-hand side, thered be no confusion.

Corporate Oaks Drive, Crystal River (In Meadowcrest) Dr. Kenneth P. Pritchyk DPM Comprehensive foot & ankle care for the entire family. NATURE COAST Foot And Ankle Center, LLC LETTERSto the Editor ObamaCare not the course that needs changingIn Fridays Chronicle,Joseph Ryan asserted that what is needed (for ObamaCare) is a course change. The main change he wants, of course, is the one House Republicans have voted for dozens of times since the tea party took to the House back in 2010. His premise is that our health care system is essentially perfect except that 15 percent of the population has no coverage. That is of course a false premise. Unlike any civilized country (and many which are not), we do have many citizens left out in the cold. And much of the coverage is not only flimsy but egregiously expensive. Our cost as a percentage of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as of the end of 2012 (Economist) is 17.9 percent. No other countrys is anywhere near that. According to Bob Dole years ago (fighting HillaryCare), we have the best health care system in the world. But not if either cost or effectiveness is considered. Of the 48 nations with longest life expectancy, our life expectancy of 78.8 years ranks 46th. But while a few countries have higher GDP, all have a lower proportion allocated to health care. It costs us more absolutely than all but a few countries with very high GDP. While our own income is skewed heavily towards the top 5 percent, the absolute cost per capita is higher. And, of course, those other countries take care of everyone, not just 85 percent (and they take care of them better.) Mr. Ryan points out Republicans have some offers on the table for reform of health care. But we all know that is a joke. Obamacare, like Romneycare before it, is a compromise developed by a right-wing think tank. Any new Republican proposals comes after three years of futile votes to repeal ObamaCare. Their plan is simply to destroy ObamaCare, not to provide a realistic alternative. After all, the 15 percent dont matter. To repeat, we have the highest percentage of GDP going to health care (and practically the highest absolute cost) of any nation. And we have a lower life expectancy than any developed nation and many which are not. It is best only for profit optimization. Pat Condray OzelloDealership has integrityA few years ago, I purchased an SUV from a lot in Ocala. It was an older vehicle, but with very few miles. It had all of the bells and whistles, and even the leather seats still had that new-car smell. I was told that it had belonged to an older couple who kept it in the garage and only drove it to church and occasionally the grocery. I was thrilled with my purchase, but soon learned that if a deal is too good to be true it probably is. After a few weeks of driving my new car, it started to stall. It would stall without warning, often in the most inopportune places, such as pulling out into traffic. There was never any warning, and the vehicle could go for weeks or even months without any problems and then would start stalling again. I took the vehicle to several shops, but no one could seem to find the problem. I learned how to throw it in neutral and restart it on the roll. While this was not the best solution, I learned to live with it and continued to drive the vehicle for a few years, becoming more and more afraid that the stalling could lead to a catastrophic situation. I wanted to get rid of the car, but I was afraid to sell it or trade it fearing that a family might end up with this dangerous vehicle. Finally I had had enough and decided to trade it. I found a truck that I liked at a small lot and talked to the salesman. I told him what the vehicle did and my fear about someone getting hurt or even worse. I told him I was afraid that my honesty would probably get me a lesser trade-in value, but that my greater fear was this dangerous vehicle going to an unsuspecting customer. His response was we just wont say anything to the boss. I left that dealer, knowing that I would never do business there again. If that was what they said about my trade, then what could be wrong with the vehicle I wanted? I found another vehicle, same year, same model, at Eagle Buick. I went through the same process as I had before with the staff at Eagle and was assured by Russ Baldner, general sales manager, that that car would not be sold if they could not find the problem. The staff at Eagle was very professional and on Mr. Baldners word, I traded vehicles. I am absolutely thrilled with my new truck, but was a little skeptical when I saw my old vehicle on the road around Crystal River. Two months later, when I went back to Eagle for an oil change, the subject of my old vehicle came up and I am very happy to say that it is still at Eagle and that a mechanic drives it on occasion to try and diagnose the stalling problem. It still has its issues and once again I was assured that it would never be sold unless the problems were properly diagnosed and addressed. I want to say thank you to Russ and his staff at Eagle Buick. It is truly refreshing to deal with honest caring people. The integrity of the staff is amazing and I will always remember this situation and how I was treated. Thank you, Eagle Buick, and Ill see you when I get ready to purchase my next vehicle.Karen Adkins Dunnellon Sound OFF Spruce up InvernessWhat is going on with the city of Inverness? We have potholes.

Dont turn them off and on. Turn all off nightly, TV, computer, fans, etc. Things plugged in are OK, just turn the appliances, TV, just turn them off.

I pray that things will work out for you and your bills go down.Sign of the sidewalksIn regards to the editorial on sidewalks: The reason youre seeing such an increase in foot traffic, especially in Homosassa and other places, is because of the economy.

Wintry Associated PressA horse looks across a fence Monday during a snow storm, west of Berryville, Va. Obama speaks with PalestiniansWASHINGTON President Barack Obama pressed visiting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas Monday to help break the logjam to elusive Mideast peace talks, acknowledging with a deadline fast approaching that the task ahead is very hard, its very challenging. Were going to have to take some tough political decisions and risks if were to move it forward, Obama said at the start of his Oval Office meeting with the Palestinian leader. My hope is that we can continue to see progress in the coming days and weeks. The White House meeting marked a renewed foray into a diplomatic minefield that the president has mostly left up to his secretary of state, John Kerry. With just weeks left before a U.S.-imposed April deadline for completing a framework for peace talks, Obama is hoping presidential pressure might overcome a growing sense of pessimism on both sides. Congress studies wildfire fundsBOISE, Idaho A bipartisan effort underway in Congress would change the way the country pays to fight catastrophic wildfires, tapping natural disaster funds instead of money intended for fire prevention, lawmakers from Oregon and Idaho said Monday. Historically, as fire season progressed, money set aside for forest thinning and other fire prevention efforts was siphoned to pay for battling the biggest blazes. In the past, people borrowed from the prevention fund to fight fires, and then of course the problem gets worse, said Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, who met with lawmakers to discuss the proposed budget reform. The legislation introduced in Congress would direct that when firefighting costs reach 70 percent of the 10-year average, firefighting agencies could dip into the governments fund for battling natural disasters such as hurricanes.SC man attacked for belchingTEGA CAY, S.C. Police in South Carolina are looking for a suspect who apparently doesnt tolerate bad manners. Tega Cay, S.C., police said a 20-year-old Fort Mill man sat down with a friend at a local Taco Bell restaurant on Sunday when a man in another booth asked him if he had belched without saying excuse me. A police report states the man then walked over to the victim, picked up a chair and hit the victim on the left elbow. The victim also told police the man grabbed his throat and tried to head butt him before a restaurant worker told the assailant to leave. Police said the suspect left in a white pickup truck.

Envoy: Afghans to sign pact with US UNITED NATIONS Afghanistans U.N. ambassador said Monday he is certain the government will soon sign an agreement with the United States that would allow some U.S. troops to remain behind after the final withdrawal of American soldiers at the end of the year. Zahir Tanins statement to the U.N. Security Council was sharply at odds with Afghan President Hamid Karzais final address to parliament on Saturday ahead of April 5 presidential elections. Karzai reiterated he would not sign the agreement and said U.S. soldiers could leave on schedule because his military, which already protects 93 percent of the country, was ready to take over entirely. Tanin said the Afghan people demonstrated at a Loya Jirga, or grand council, in November that they believe in the importance of continuing strategic relations with the United States, NATO and the wider international community. The U.S. force would train and mentor Afghan troops, and some U.S. Special Forces would also be left behind to hunt down al-Qaida.Syrian, 107, back with her familyBERLIN A 107-yearold woman who fled the conflict in Syria has arrived in Germany to be reunited with her family, including her newborn great-greatgranddaughter, officials said Monday.

So last summer, Duke Energy turned to North Carolina lawmakers for help. Documents and interviews collected by The Associated Press show how Dukes lobbyists prodded Republican legislators to tuck a 330-word provision in a regulatory reform bill running nearly 60 single-spaced pages. Though the bill never once mentions coal ash, the change allowed Duke to avoid any costly cleanup of contaminated groundwater leaching from its unlined dumps toward rivers, lakes and the drinking wells of nearby homeowners. Passed overwhelmingly by the GOP-controlled legislature, the bill was signed into law by Gov. Pat McCrory, a pro-business Republican who worked at Duke for 28 years. For decades, Democrats have stifled small businesses and job creators with undue bureaucratic burden and red tape, McCrory said at the time. This commonsense legislation cuts government red tape, axes overly burdensome regulations, and puts job creation first here in North Carolina. Environmentalists saw the legislation, and its little-noticed provision benefiting Duke, differently. This sweeping change gutted North Carolinas groundwater law, recounts D.J. Gerken, a senior attorney for the Southern Environmental Law Center. The level of coordination between Duke and North Carolinas lawmakers and regulators had long been of concern to environmentalists. But when a Duke dump ruptured on Feb. 2 spewing enough coal ash to coat 70 miles of the Dan River with toxic sludge the issue took on new urgency. Federal prosecutors have launched a criminal investigation into the spill, issuing at least 23 grand jury subpoenas to Duke executives and state officials. The first batch of subpoenas were issued the day after an AP story raised questions about whether North Carolina regulators had helped shield Duke from a coalition of environmental groups that wanted to sue under the U.S. Clean Water Act to force the company to clean up its coal ash pollution. Republicans took control of North Carolinas legislature in 2010 for the first time since Reconstruction and cemented full control of state government with the inauguration of McCrory as governor last year. That put them in prime position to implement an ardently pro-business, antiregulation platform. In talks with conservative legislators, Dukes lobbyists framed its problem as a property rights issue. Working closely with lawmakers, the lobbyists helped craft a provision to conform to the way state regulators had been interpreting the law. The change would allow Duke to contaminate groundwater until it crossed onto a neighbors property. West sets sanctions Associated PressKIEV, Ukraine Ignoring the toughest sanctions against Moscow since the end of the Cold War, Russian President Vladimir Putin recognized Ukraines Crimean Peninsula as an independent and sovereign country on Monday, a bold challenge to Washington that escalates one of Europes worst security crises in years. The brief decree posted on the Kremlins website came just hours after the United States and the European Union announced asset freezes and other sanctions against Russian and Ukrainian officials involved in the Crimean crisis. President Barack Obama warned that more would come if Russia didnt stop interfering in Ukraine, and Putins move clearly forces his hand. The West has struggled to find leverage to force Mos cow to back off in the Ukraine turmoil, of which Crimea is only a part, and analysts saw Mondays sanctions as mostly ineffectual. Moscow showed no signs of flinching in the dispute that has roiled Ukraine since Russian troops took effective control of the strategic Black Sea peninsula last month and supported the Sunday referendum that overwhelmingly called for annexation by Russia. Recognizing Crimea as independent would be an interim step in absorbing the region. Crimea had been part of Russia since the 18th century, until Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev transferred it to Ukraine in 1954 and both Russians and Crimeas majority ethnic Russian population see annexation as correcting a historic insult. Ukraines turmoil which began in November with a wave of protests against President Viktor Yanukovych and accelerated after he fled to Russia in late February has become Europes most severe security crisis in years. Russia, like Yanukovych himself, characterizes his ouster as a coup, and alleges the new authorities are fascistminded and likely to crack down on Ukraines ethnic Russian population. Pro-Russia demonstrations have broken out in several cities in eastern Ukraine near the Russian border, where the Kremlin has been massing troops. New uncertainty about missing Malaysian plane Associated PressKUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia Officials revealed a new timeline Monday suggesting the final voice transmission from the cockpit of the missing Malaysian plane may have occurred before any of its communications systems were disabled, adding more uncertainty about who aboard might have been to blame. The search for Flight 370, which vanished early March 8 while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board, has now been expanded deep into the northern and southern hemispheres. Australian vessels scoured the southern Indian Ocean and China offered 21 of its satellites to help Malaysia in the unprecedented hunt. With no wreckage found in one of the most puzzling aviation mysteries of all time, passengers relatives have been left in an agonizing limbo. Investigators say the Boeing 777 was deliberately diverted during its overnight flight and flew offcourse for hours. They havent ruled out hijacking, sabotage, or pilot suicide, and are checking the backgrounds of the 227 passengers and 12 crew members as well as the ground crew for personal problems, psychological issues or links to terrorists. Malaysian Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said finding the plane was still the main focus, and he did not rule out that it might be discovered intact. The fact that there was no distress signal, no ransom notes, no parties claiming responsibility, there is always hope, Hishammuddin said at a news conference. Malaysian Airlines CEO Ahmad Jauhari Yahya said an initial investigation indicated that the last words ground controllers heard from the plane All right, good night were spoken by the copilot, Fariq Abdul Hamid. A voice other than that of Fariq or the pilot, Zaharie Ahmad Shah, it would have been clearest indication yet of something amiss in the cockpit before the flight went offcourse. Malaysian officials said earlier that those words came after one of the jetliners data communications systems the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System had been switched off, suggesting the voice from the cockpit may have been trying to deceive ground controllers. However, Ahmad said that while the last data transmission from ACARS which gives plane performance and maintenance information came before that, it was still unclear at what point the system was switched off, making any implications of the timing murkier. The new information opened the possibility that both ACARS and the planes transponders, which make the plane visible to civilian air traffic controllers, were turned off at about the same time. It also suggests that the message delivered from the cockpit could have preceded any of the severed communications.

Florida cleans up AP All-SEC honors Associated PressATLANTAAfter an unbeaten run through the Southeastern Conference, top-ranked Florida reaped its rewards Monday. Scottie Wilbekin was picked as The Associated Press Southeastern Conference player of the year, while Billy Donovan took the coaching honor for the second season in a row. Kentucky freshman Julius Randle was selected as newcomer of the year. The AP awards were announced one day after Florida defeated Kentucky 61-60 in the championship game of the SEC tournament. The Gators (32-2) were named top overall seed in the NCAAs and will open against either Albany or Mount St. Marys in the South Regional. Wilbekin and Randle were unanimous choices to the All-SEC first team, joined by Tennessee forward Jarnell Stokes, Florida forward Casey Prather and Missouri guard Jabari Brown. Wilbekin averaged 13 points and 3.8 assists a game. More important, the 6-foot-2 senior guard was the unquestioned leader for the Gators at both ends of the court, making amends from two suspensions that threatened his future with the program. He missed the first five games this season for an undisclosed violation of team rules, after being held out the first three games the previous year. I think when he went through that, our guys were like, OK, it happened one time, blah, blah, blah. But now it happens again, guys start pulling back, saying, OK, man, is this guy about us? Does this guy even care about us or our team? Donovan said. Wilbekin worked hard to rebuild the relationship with his teammates, and it showed on the court. He had to go through a long process of showing these guys that he cares and hes committed to them, Donovan said. I think once he got through the end of that process, I think our guys kind of put their arms around him and were like, Wow, coach made this guy go through a lot. A lot of that had to do with me wanting to help him restore his credibility inside the team, and he had to do that and hes grown from that on and off the court. Wilbekin was named MVP of the SEC tournament. During hard-fought wins in both the semifinals and final, he would gather the team around him when things werent going Floridas way. Coach cant talk to us all the time, he said, so we try to huddle ourselves and say the right things among ourselves. Donovan repeated as coach of the year with Florida becoming the first team to go 18-0 in SEC games during the regular season. The Gators won three more games at the Georgia Dome this past weekend for their first tournament title since 2007. Anytime you get those coaching honors or coaching awards, a lot of it is because youve got a good group and theyve done a great job, Donovan said. I do think that when individual awards come out, its much, much more of a reflection of the people around you. Even with Scotties award, Id say the same thing. Its more of a reflection of the people around him. I think for me, its the players and the coaching staff, the people I have around me. Randle emerged as the top player from Kentuckys latest group of heralded freshmen. While some thought the Wildcats (24-10) underachieved after all, they started the season No. 1 and there was even speculation about whether they could go unbeaten the 6-foot-9 Randle led the conference in rebounding (10.5 a game) and ranked 10th in scoring (15.0). Kentucky was seeded eighth in the NCAAs and will open Friday against Kansas State in the Midwest Regional. I feel like our chemistry is getting better, Randle said. Were becoming a better team, getting better every game. Stokes, a 6-8 junior forward, helped Tennessee (21-12) join Florida and Kentucky as the only SEC schools in the 68team NCAA field, ranking second to Randle in rebounding (10.3) and 12th in scoring (14.7). The Vols will face Iowa on Wednesday in a first-round game at Dayton. Prather was another of Floridas senior leaders. The 6-6 forward paced the Gators in scoring at 14.2 points per game. Brown, a 6-5 junior guard, led the SEC in scoring with an average of 19.8 points. Florida landed another player on the All-SEC second team: senior center Patric Young. He was joined by Tennessee forward Jordan McRae, Alabama guard Trevor Releford and a pair of LSU forwards, Johnny OBryant III and Jordan Mickey. McRae and Releford both slipped to the second team after making the top squad in 2013. The 66th annual AP All-SEC team was selected by a 12-member regional media panel.

March Madness kicks into high gear this week with the start of the NCAA tournament, the time hoop heads circle the calendar like its Christmas. This years run through the field of 68 should be a blast an undefeated team in the bracket, a wide-open field and a heavy dose of great players. So stock up the fridge, work on that fake cough to call in sick and dig the remote from under the couch cushions. Its time to roll.TOP TEAMSFlorida. No. 1 overall seed should get some props, especially one that plays defense as the Gators do. Wichita State. Final Four last season, unbeaten so far this one. All you need to know. Arizona.

UConn, Notre Dame, Tennessee and South Carolina earn No. 1 seeds Associated PressAll season there has been a buzz around womens basketball about UConn and Notre Dame. Now the stage is set for the former Big East rivals to meet in an historic national championship game. The teams enter the NCAA tournament unbeaten only the second time thats ever happened. They are on a collision course to meet in the national championship game. If they do both get to Nashville, the Irish will be all that stands between Geno Auriemma and a record ninth NCAA championship, breaking a tie with Tennessee. We really havent talked, I bet hardly at all, about this national championship or what number it is or any of that, Auriemma said. Despite being the 13th womens team to go unbeaten during the regular season, the Irish have felt almost unappreciated with most of the talk centered on the Huskies. Coach Muffet McGraw doesnt seem to mind. I like it because we can get a chip on our shoulder and head into the tournament with a bit of chip, she said. Even though UConn and Notre Dame didnt play this season, the two teams know plenty about each other having met 12 times over the previous three seasons. Notre Dame isnt intimidated by Connecticut; the Irish have won seven of the past nine meetings with the Huskies. It was very unusual to go through a whole season without playing them, were so used to it, three times every year, McGraw said. Weve gotten pretty good at beating them the last couple of years. Before the potential meeting of unbeatens, the two might have to go through SEC powers Tennessee and South Carolina, who also earned No. 1 seeds. While its the 22nd time that the Lady Vols have earned a top spot, its the first for the Gamecocks. The Huskies, Lady Vols and Gamecocks all could have to play on an opponents home court with a trip to Nashville on the line. Stanford, Notre Dame, Louisville and Nebraska, who are all hosting regionals, were a combined 52-3 at home this season. The Lady Vols, who won the SEC tournament championship, are the top seed in the Louisville Regional and would also like nothing more than to break the tie with Connecticut and win their ninth NCAA title. They open up against Northwestern State and will be trying to end a fiveyear drought of not making the Final Four. The Lady Vols wont have an easy path. West Virginia is the second seed. Host Louisville is the three seed and Maryland is the four. Tennessee was involved in the only other meeting between unbeaten. The Lady Vols routed Liberty in the opener of the 1998 tournament when both were undefeated. Like their SEC rivals, South Carolina doesnt have an easy road to the Final Four. The Gamecocks could face an inspired young North Carolina team in the regional semifinals before potentially playing host Stanford. The Tar Heels and their stellar freshman class, led by Diamond Deshields, beat the Gamecocks in December. The Tar Heels also could have coach Sylvia Hatchell back on the sidelines at that point. The Hall of Famer battled leukemia during the regular season. While Hatchells status is unknown for the tournament, Baylor will be missing coach Kim Mulkey for the first game. She is suspended for the first round game against Western Kentucky for comments she made last season after losing to Louisville in the regional semifinals. I havent talked to the team in depth about me not coaching in the first game, Mulkey said. Ill watch it on television at home. ... I always tell the team something could happen to me on that sideline and you should be able to coach yourself. Connecticut could have to beat host Nebraska in the regional semifinals if both teams make it that far. The Huskies have made it to the Final Four in a record six straight seasons. They hope to make it to Nashville to keep that streak alive. If the Huskies do win the national championship it would be the fifth time they went undefeated in a season. This would be the first time that they won 40 games, joining Baylor as the only teams ever to accomplish that feat. The defending national champions have won games by an average of 36 points. They open up at home against Prairie View A&M on Sunday night. The Lady Panthers became the ninth team to reach the NCAA tournament with a losing record when they won the Southwestern Conference championship. Tennessee will be making its 33rd straight appearance in the NCAA tournament, getting into the field every year. Five teams will be making their first trip Akron, North Dakota, South Dakota, Winthrop and Wright State. While those schools will be getting their first taste of the NCAAs, Chattanoogas Jim Foster became the first coach to take four different teams to the NCAA tournament.B2TUESDAY, MARCH18, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS AP LINCOLNLincoln, Neb.NOTRE DAMENotre Dame, Ind.LOUISVILLELouisville, Ky.STANFORDStanford, Calif.Storrs, Conn.

Players went through weight drills and then ran the 40-yard dash on the indoor track of the OConnell Center. Several players slipped at the starting line and some ran barefoot for better traction. Several Florida players were looking to make a better showing than they did at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis last month. Defensive backs Marcus Roberson and Loucheiz Purifoy had been mentioned as possible first-round selections. But both players only managed a best 40-time of 4.61 at the combine, a relatively slow time for a defensive back. Roberson, running barefoot, and Purifoy ran the 40 on Monday. Unofficial clocks in the stands had both players with faster times than their combine time, but official results were not released. Most of the NFL executives who were in attendance left the Gators practice field opting not to talk about the workouts they had just watched. The weather was a factor but we take that into account with these guys, said James Shack Harris, senior personnel executive with the Detroit Lions. Defensive end Dominque Easley tore his ACL three games into the 2013 season and missed the Gators final nine games. He didnt take part in any of the drills on Monday but instead will have a private workout for teams in mid-April. He feels hes made good progress since the injury. Ronald Powell, who missed the entire 2012 season when he also tore his ACL, came back to play 11 games with eight starts at defensive end his senior season last fall. I feel I did well out there today, he said. I had pulled a hamstring at the combine and didnt perform as well as I had hoped to. The chance to show the scouts I could do better at the position drills and other things was big for me today. Florida head coach Will Muschamp was on hand and watched his former players perform well despite the adverse conditions. You play football in the rain, Muschamp said. None of our guys bellyache. They go work and Im proud of them for their effort. Muschamp had praise for two of his senior receivers. Solomon (Patton) and Trey (Burton) both looked great catching the football out there, the Gators coach added. Solomon will fit in with some team. Hes a big-time kickoff returner and one of the better kickoff guys. Muschamp also downplayed the perceived slow times for Roberson and Purifoy at the combine. A lot of the comments I get from (NFL) scouts is that these guys play faster than what their times are, Muschamp said. Other former Gator players participating in the workouts for NFL personnel were offensive linemen Jon Halapio, Jon Harrison and Kyle Koehne, linebacker Darrin Kitchens, defensive lineman Damien Jacobs and defensive back Jaylen Watkins. Mike Zimmer of the Minnesota Vikings was the only known head coach in attendance. Associated PressTop-ranked Connecticut isnt the only team entering the womens NCAA Tournament with a perfect record.

Dwight Howard was out with an ankle strain, leaving the Rockets without him for the first time this season.

HEALTH& LIFE Section CTUESDAY, MARCH 18, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Inside:Play golf, help homeless animals/ C7 A diet of processed products can lead to nutrient deficiency, obesity and a slew of maladies. There are a lot of reasons people eat. Taste. Socialization. Comfort. But what is foods true purpose? Fuel. The body is a beautiful, strong, complex machine, said Dr. Jill Adera, an Inverness physician. Nutritions root meaning is to nourish. Food is supposed to help you grow or metabolize, but thats not whats going on with most peoples diets. Adera points to the food industry as the culprit for most poor eating habits. The inundation of packaged and processed products has discouraged people from picking out their own ingredients and cooking, she said. Consequently, the general population consumes too few nutrients and too many calories and/or sugars, leading to weight gain and a whole host of health problems. Diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, cancer and depression can all result from obesity, Adera said. Its so mentally distracting too. So many people struggle with their self value because of their weight. Getting on the right track with nutrition can feel overwhelming given the abundance of unhealthy options available, most of which are very convenient, tasty and cheap. Theres also no shortage of fad diets, advocating different theories on weight loss and management. But the easiest route to good nutrition, Adera said, is to ask yourself, Is what Im eating really food? Here, she shares a few common food myths and her list of shopping essentials. Katie Hendrick For the Chronicle Myth No. 5Eating well is expensive. Its true that a lot of grocery stores buy one, get one free deals tend to be snack foods, but healthy options wont necessarily break the bank, Adera said. Frozen vegetables, instant brown rice, oatmeal these are all very affordable and nutritious. Cheat sheetFor a well-balanced, nutrientrich diet, Adera said the following foods should always be in your cart: Berries Oatmeal Eggs Beans Leafy greens (ideally, spinach or kale) Fish Almonds or natural peanut butter Brown rice Carrots Whole wheat bread (Dr. Aderas pick is Ezekiel bread) A low fat meat (think: chicken or turkey) Myth No. 1Cereal is good for you. This confuses a lot of people, because if you look at the nutrition label, it looks like cereal provides 100 percent of everything, Adera said. But its not what it seems, because almost every cereals been enriched, meaning the nutrients were added in because the refining process stripped all nutritional value from the grain. Plus, cereals bonded with sugar. The exception: oatmeal. Low in calories and high in fiber and protein, oatmeal is one of the most nutritious foods you can eat, Adera said. Myth No. 2Milk and yogurt are healthy. Dairy products really should be enjoyed in limited quantities, Adera said. Milk and yogurt have way more sugars than most people think. While milk is essential to help babies bodies grow, it hasnt been proven that adults benefit much from cows milk, she said. Myth No. 3Carbs make you fat. Carbohydrates include a lot more foods than cake or pasta or white bread, Adera said. Watermelons a carb. Broccolis a carb. Carbohydrates are great sources of energy if you pick the right ones. Vegetables, obviously, are good choices, Adera said. When it comes to choosing bread, Adera advises scrutinizing the product. If you can see seeds, its probably good, she said. If it seems dense, its probably good. Also scan the nutrition label for buzzwords, such as blend or enriched: If you see them, put it back on the shelf, she said. Myth No. 4Eggs raise your cholesterol. Cholesterol changes arent caused by specific foods, or by diet alone, Adera said. Its about changing your weight. Eggs are great sources of protein.

C2TUESDAY, MARCH18, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEHEALTH& LIFE Get ready to relay and fight the good fight against cancer Yes, Relay for Life season is upon us, and it is time for all of us to get ready to relay. One person can make a difference. One event can make a difference. For those of you who have attended a Relay for Life event, you know what I am talking about. For those of you who have not, make this year your first to experience this life-changing event. Many people ask me where Relay for Life got its start. The American Cancer Society Relay for Life began in Tacoma, Wash., as the City of Destiny Classic 24-Hour Run Against Cancer. In the mid-1980s, Dr. Gordy Klatt, a Tacoma colorectal surgeon, wanted to enhance the income of his local American Cancer Society office. He decided to personally raise money for the fight by doing something he enjoyed running marathons. In May 1985, Dr. Klatt spent a grueling 24 hours circling the track at Baker Stadium at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma for more than 83 miles. Throughout the night, friends paid $25 to run or walk 30 minutes with him. He raised $27,000 to fight cancer. That first year, nearly 300 of Dr. Klatts friends, family and patients watched as he ran and walked the course. While he circled the track those 24 hours, he thought about how others could take part. He envisioned a 24-hour team relay event that could raise more money to fight cancer. Months later he pulled together a small committee to plan the first team relay event known as the City of Destiny Classic 24-Hour Run Against Cancer. In 1986, 19 teams took part in the first team relay event on the track at the colorful, historical Stadium Bowl and raised $33,000. An indescribable spirit prevailed at the track and in the tents that dotted the infield. Now, look at us today. The American Cancer Society Relay for Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in our community a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out at our local high schools, and take turns walking or running around the track. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length. There are special moments at each relay. Our relays start with a Survivors Lap, an inspirational time when survivors are invited to circle the track together and help everyone celebrate the victories weve achieved over cancer. We also take time, a very special moment, to honor and remember people who have been touched by cancer during the Luminaria Ceremony. Candles are lit inside bags filled with sand, each one bearing the name of a person touched by cancer, and participants often walk a lap in silence. As people take time to remember, those who have walked alongside others battling cancer can grieve and find healing. This is a time that truly highlights the importance of defeating this disease. This moment always drives home the reason that we do it. Many people ask me why we do it, why do we stay up all night? There are so many reasons. The American Cancer Society Relay for Life represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated. It is more than just a fundraiser its a life-changing experience. At Relay, every person in the community has a chance to celebrate, remember, and fight back. And every person who participates joins others in our community as part of this movement to end cancer. So, Citrus County, lets get Ready to Relay. This year, two Relay for Life events will take place in Citrus County. The Inverness/Lecanto Relay will take place at Citrus High School on Friday, April 4th. The Crystal River/Dunnellon Relay will take place at Crystal River High School on Friday, April 25th. This year, make an effort to attend at least one of these events. If you have never Relayed, you will be moved, and I promise you, you will be hooked.Dr. Bennett is a board-certified radiation oncologist. If you have any suggestions for topics, or have any questions, contact him at 522 N. Lecanto Highway, Lecanto, FL 34461, or email email@example.com. Dr. C. Joseph BennettNAVIGATING CANCER Significant weight loss can be sign of cancer Mr. Smith is a 75-year-old gentleman who went to see his family physician for a routine visit. His physician noticed that he was losing weight. In the past three months, he lost almost 15 pounds. He was not trying, but he, as most of us, did not mind losing weight. His doctor was concerned and he referred the patient to me for further work-up. Most people with cancer will lose weight at some point. When you lose weight for no known reason, its called an unexplained weight loss. An unexplained weight loss of 10 pounds or more may be the first sign of cancer. This happens most often with cancers of the pancreas, stomach, esophagus (swallowing tube) or lung. It can also be lymphoma. Other cancers can also cause unexplained weight loss. Weight loss is common among people with cancer and is often the first noticeable sign of the disease. As many as 40 percent of people with cancer report unexplained weight loss at the time of diagnosis, and up to 80 percent of people with advanced cancer. It can be in combination with cachexia (or wasting), which is the combination of weight loss and muscle mass loss. The condition is associated with fatigue, weakness, loss of energy and an inability to perform everyday tasks. People experiencing cachexia often cannot manage treatments well and may experience more intense symptoms. We all know that losing weight is extremely difficult. If you lose weight without trying, please take it seriously. Lots of us want to lose weight anyway and so they feel that weight loss is good. Remember it can be a sign of something very serious like cancer going on. It can be the first and only sign of cancer. Unexplained weight loss is not always due to cancer. It can be due to varied reasons like depression, a stomach problem or low or underactive thyroid, dental problems, etc. Generally, you should see your doctor if you have lost 5 percent of your body weight within six months or less and have done so without modifying your diet or exercising. I am not discouraging anyone to lose weight and this applies mainly to people who lose weight without sincere effort. My patient had a complete workup for cancer. He was diagnosed with cancer of the lymph nodes called Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. He was started on chemotherapy. He is doing well. He is gaining weight. He has a good chance of cure.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist. He is the volunteer medical adviser of the Citrus Unit of American Cancer Society. Write to 521 N.

Narcotics Anonymous:HEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, MARCH18, 2014 C3 What to do with a case of horrible of halitosis Halitosis, or commonly called bad breath, is an abnormal foul odor to the breath. It is a very common problem and we have all experienced it at one time or another. But, usually it is not a problem and very short-lived, because it can be handled easily with good oral hygiene. Interest and treatment of bad breath has been largely limited to a dental and oral surgeon. But on occasion, the otolaryngologist (ENT doctor) is called upon to evaluate a patient with a complaint of bad breath. This is usually to exclude disorders of the nose, sinus or tonsils that might be a contributing factor. In most cases, patients have tried everything they could at home, as well as contacting their dentist. And often, before they reach our office, we find that they have been fastidious in their oral hygiene manners. This particular problem can be a diagnostic challenge to the ear, nose and throat doctor, as rarely there is an underlying disease process. Typically, the most common problem with bad breath is that it is an odor that arises from a condition within the mouth, nose and sinus. But on rare occasions, the odors can have a systemic origin such as being blood borne and excreted via the air coming from the lung. While not usually the consequence of a serious medical problem, bad breath may become a significant social handicap for certain individuals, especially those who work closely with the public. Occasionally, neurosis will develop because of the problem of halitosis. There are individuals who compulsively use mints, mouthwashes and oral sprays for fear of offending others. Generally speaking, the person with bad breath commonly is unaware of this condition until he is informed by others. Mouth odors vary in quality and intensity. The quality of the odor is undoubtedly related to its odor. Diabetic patients can have a certain type of odor to their breath, as well as patients with liver problems can have a certain characteristic odor. A common cause of bad breath is age. The breath of infants and children is usually said to be sweet and pleasing, while the breath of an adolescent or an adult tends to be somewhat heavier, sometimes pungent and somewhat sour despite meticulous oral hygiene. The exact causes of these aging changes are unknown. There are normal changes in the breath during the day. As we all know, morning breath is somewhat disagreeable and probably related to decreased saliva flow during sleep and accumulation of food debris and bacteria. Throughout the day, increased lubrication of the mouth and normal movement of the tongue against the teeth, as well as eating or drinking, tends to clear the bad breath. Other factors, such as dehydration, over indulgence of alcohol and smoking have been shown to cause breakdown of cellular proteins and create compounds that cause bad breath. The hunger state also contributes to creation of an objectionable odor to the breath. This is due to a certain metabolic breakdown of products that create these compounds, as mentioned previously. This is easily resolved by either eating or drinking. Odors from the oral cavity are most commonly due to retention of food decomposing between the teeth, which is easily remedied with flossing, as well as prosthetic appliances, bridges, partials, dentures, etc., that tend to trap the food as well. Periodontal disease and chronic gingivitis also create a similar situation. Other oral conditions, such as decreased saliva secondary to radiation therapy for cancer, medications that dry the mouth out, water pills, antihistamines, inadequate fluid intake or chronic mouth breathing will create the same scenario. Odors arising from the nose and sinus, as a result of a sinus infection, foreign bodies that are trapped in the nose, commonly seen in kids when they will push a bean in their nose, will ultimately cause a smell as it deteriorates and rots. A history of problems involving the tonsils and adenoids can also contribute to bad breath. The origin of oral odors excreted through the lungs involves systemic breath problems. A classic example is garlic and onions, which ingested orally, can be readily detected in the expired air from the lungs. This has led to be hypothesis that impaired digestion of certain foods may be instrumental in the production of bad breath. A common myth is that the stomach plays a big part in the production of halitosis, which is untrue. Odors from extra oral causes, such as cancer, particularly in the airway, have a distinct smell of rotting flesh. In all cases of halitosis, it should be possible to carry out proper evaluation and determine the cause of the halitosis so that it can be specifically treated. Fortunately, the vast majority of times it is benign and meticulous oral hygiene including tooth brushing, rinsing, flossing, antiseptic mouthwashes and brushing of any coating of the top of the tongue is generally found to be effective.

Periwinkle Lane, Suite A, Homosassa. The simplest living will is Five Wishes. The 12-page document asks you questions and gives you options about your care in plain language.

The workshop will be moderated by Hospice of Citrus and the Nature Coast Wings Grief Services Manager Jonathan Beard. According to Beard, Five Wishes is written in everyday language and helps start and structure important conversations about care in times of serious illness. It helps you express how you want to be treated if you are seriously ill and unable to speak for yourself. Its an innovative living will that goes beyond medical questions to deal with personal, emotional and spiritual issues. The Five Wishes workshop is offered at no charge, open to the public and reservations are suggested. Call Jonathan Beard at 352.621.1500.

COMMUNITYPage C7TUESDAY, MARCH 18, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE NEWS NOTES The fourth annual tribute to The King commemorating the late Elvis Presleys visit to Citrus County for the production of the movie Follow That Dream was all about Cote Deonath, who, in the person of Elvis, was in concert in the upstairs courtroom of the historic Citrus County Courthouse in Inverness. The event was a benefit for the continued preservation of the Old Courthouse, which houses Citrus Countys historic memorabilia, extensive exhibits offering a glimpse of Citrus Countys yesteryears and heritage to visitors, local school tours and history enthusiasts. Elvis came astoundingly alive as Deonath rock n rolled right into the hearts of his adoring audience. Sixteen-year-old Cote, at age 2, viewed Follow That Dream with his grandmother and never looked back. His first performance was two years later, as Little Elvis. This year alone, he will be performing in 20 concerts, including the Memphis area. The Elvis tribute artist, along with the Stan Gillis Suspicious Minds Band, opened the concert with Shake, Rattle and Roll, with Elvis wandering into the crowd with All Shook Up, stopping to sit on the lap of a fan crooning Dont Be Cruel to her. Burning Love followed, with every Elvis move perfected by Cote. After a fan gave him a scarf, he put it on, then gave it back, along with a kiss. Time and again he wandered into the audience, favoring us with all of the Elvis songs we love to hear, including Treat Me Nice. During intermission, several door prize gift certificates were awarded courtesy of local businesses. To our delight, Cote performed the second half of the show dressed in the familiar white-sequined jumpsuit, an Elvis trademark, including the huge belt buckle and the stand-up collar, sporting a peacock embossed on the back. C.C. Rider and I Gotta Woman Way Cross Town was followed by Amen, Amen with the audience harmonizing with him. Having attended two of Elvis Florida concerts at the Curtis Hixon Hall in Tampa and the Lakeland Civic Center, it was quite a nostalgic night for me at the concert, remembering those long-ago fabulous nights. Seeing Deonath perform was sheer delight, seeing him remark, Is my suit too tight? as he sang Youve Lost That Lovin Feeling, as hed perfected the kings mannerisms, watching as he gave away the scarves while crooning Ill Remember You, brought back cherished memories for me. Now my daughter, Sue, and I have a keepsake scarf from Cote. It just had to happen. With the room rockin to Whole Lot of Shakin Goin On, Jailhouse Rock and Hound Dog, a fan began to rock with Cote to Poke Salad Annie. Continuing banter with the band members, Cote bonded with the audience, as well. Giving us a preview of his Sunday morning concert, he performed Lord Help Me Jesus, My Soul is in Your Hands. Closing out the concert with Hurt, Suspicious Minds and Unchained Melody, he received two much-deserved standing ovations as he sang my personal favorite, Cant Help Falling in Love.Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community. Let her know about your groups upcoming activities by writing to P.O. Box 803, Crystal River, FL 34423.

TUESDAY, MARCH18, 2014 C9CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Sam Levenson, a comedian and author, said, If you die in an elevator, be sure to push the Up button. If your partner bids up, you (or he) had better know how to push play the cards correctly. In todays deal, South is catapulted into four spades. What should he do after West leads the club ace and continues with the club king? In answer to Norths takeout double, South might have expediently responded one diamond. North was less likely to get excessively enthusiastic opposite a minor-suit bid than opposite one in a major. However, four spades can be made. (And note that five clubs doubled costs 500, more than the value of the NorthSouth game.) Norths four-club rebid was a splinter, showing four-card spade support, a very strong hand and at most a singleton club. Declarers basic plan should be to lose only two hearts and one club. He should aim to take four spades, one heart, four diamonds and the trick-two ruff on the board. So, after trumping the club king low, South should draw trumps, then play the ace and another heart. Suppose West takes the second heart and leads the club jack. Declarer ruffs and must finesse in diamonds but how? Since he might and here does need to take three diamond finesses, he must first lead his diamond nine the lowest card in his hand that can hold the trick, assuming the finesse works. After winning with the diamond nine, South runs the diamond jack, plays a diamond to dummys queen, and claims those 10 tricks.

R Dear Annie: My husband and I are seriously concerned about my 19-year-old sister-in-law, Veronica. She came to stay with us a few months ago because she was having a hard time at my motherin-laws house. We did not ask for any money. All we asked was that she clean up after herself and respect a curfew so she wouldnt wake our infant. Everything was OK for a few weeks, and then she started spending a lot of time with John. Every time she walked in the house, she reeked of marijuana. She later told me that John is a drug dealer. He was kicked out of his house, and she has been letting him sleep in her car. Last weekend, we spotted the two of them smoking pot in front of our house. That was the last straw. My husband asked her to leave the next day. We told my motherin-law in the hope that Veronica would get some help, but the entire thing has spun out of control, and my mother-inlaw is no longer speaking to us. We have since learned that most of Veronicas friends have stopped contact because of her relationship with John. We also learned that he was robbed and held at gunpoint in her car. We worry for her safety if she continues to hang around John, but my mother-in-law refuses to believe a word we say and continues to enable Veronicas behavior. My husband is heartbroken over this. We dont want our baby to be without a grandmother. How can we make her see that we are not the bad guys? Sad in California Dear Sad: Mom cannot face up to dealing with Veronica, and you have dropped the girl back in her lap. She is frustrated and worried and taking it out on you. Veronica is an adult and must make her own choices, good or bad. Try to reestablish a relationship with your mother-in-law without mentioning Veronica. Call and inquire whether shed like to see her grandchild. We hope she will agree. Dear Annie: I dont see happy letters very often in your column. There are some of us out here who are OK. I am 62. I have a used car and not much money, work is sporadic, and Im the happiest person ever. I have the best girlfriend in the whole world. We have been together for two years and plan on many more. My biggest problem is trying to figure out how to repay her for being the best companion I could ever imagine and giving me a second chance in life. Life is good. D. Dear D.: Youve made our day. Advice columns are intended to help people who have problems and need guidance, but its wonderful to hear from someone who is happy and satisfied. We hope you will take this letter and give it to your girlfriend. We think it will make her day, too. Dear Annie: I understand how Thats My Lot in Life feels. He says his mother visits his sister often, but even though he knows she loves him, she never makes the effort to visit his home. I sympathize. I have a brother who goes all over the country but has never, in the 50 years weve been married, been to our home. My parents, one aunt and one cousin have visited, but no other members of my family can manage to come. When I send Christmas cards, I always remind them that they do not need passports to get into West Virginia, but nobody takes the hint. When my father died, I told my son I would probably never see my family again, as we simply cant afford to travel that far, and they wont travel here. It really hurts. The only time we talk to them is if we call. Little SisterAnnies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
