A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerCrystal River City Manager Andy Houston admits he came to his job in 2006 at the right time and ended up serving for eight years until the announcement of his retirement March31. The city sorely needed stability at the manager position, going through 12 of them in 25 years. The average length of stay was 19months. The city was infamous for tumult on the various city councils. Houston credits former mayor Ron Kitchen, current mayor Jim Farley and the councils he worked with for supporting him and creating an atmosphere for progress. He is credited with pushing through major capital projects such as the sewer line project, the redo of Cutler Spur Boulevard and the beautification efforts in the downtown area. Houston, who turns 63 in July, said it is time to work on his golf game and spend more time with his grandchildren. This is the second retirement for Houston. He first retired from municipal work with St. Petersburg, but after a short stint in retirement in Georgia he decided to come to work in Crystal River. His last day, tentatively, is July18.CHRONICLE: Andy, I know you recently announced your retirement, but what are some of your most cherished memories of working here? HOUSTON: I dont know that I will point to any one thing, but I am proud of the fact that we have made good progress on a number of very important environmental issues. The extension of sewers to some 500 houses right in the immediate vicinity of Kings Bay and that process should be done in the next month. That project was ordered in 1999, so it was a long time coming. I am proud of the effluent line project that we are just now starting that will basically take our spray field out of operation. According to the Swiftmud (Southwest Florida Water Management District) people, that will eliminate nitrate loading in Kings Bay by 16percent and reduce the groundwater withdrawal at the plant (Duke Energy complex) by nearly a million gallons a day. So, those are really good things and the city is doing those things. I am proud of the fact that the city has come through an extended period of hard economic time in good financial condition. I am proud of the fact that we have a plan for our waterfront that is going to work. You know weve got pretty key properties that have been undeveloped for 40years and why that is and I CORRECTIONS APRIL 7, 2014Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best CommunityVOL. 119 ISSUE 243 50 CITRUS COUNTYInauguration: Brown wins his first Presidential /B1 INDEX Classifieds................B8 Comics....................B7 Crossword................B6 Editorial..................A10 Entertainment..........A4 Horoscope................A4 Lottery Numbers......B3 Lottery Payouts........B3 Movies......................B7 Obituaries................A6 TV Listings................B6 ONLINE POLL:Your choice?How do you do your income taxes?

Son charged in death CHRISVANORMER Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER A young homeless man sought by law enforcement officers on Saturday after his brother had been stabbed was charged early Sunday in the death by strangulation of his mother. Benjamin Robert Dick, 23, was arrested at 3:53p.m. Saturday for felony battery after deputies with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office responded to a known homeless camp behind Crystal Square Plaza off U.S. 19 regarding the stabbing of his brother. According to the sheriffs office, deputies received a tip about a recent homicide while at the homeless camp. A witness at the camp was reported to have told deputies that Dick killed his mother and buried her in a shallow grave within the site. After a search of the homeless camp, deputies found what appeared to be a grave. After an extensive excavation, detectives found the body of Jennifer Brooks, 42, Dicks mother. Lt. Brad Smith, Major Benjamin Robert Dickfaces multiple charges. Accord reached about 4-year degrees PATFAHERTY Staff writerA compromise between state college presidents and the Florida Senate heads off legislation that would have restricted bachelor degree programs and reduced funding to colleges offering those degrees. I see it as a positive outcome for the Legislature and a positive outcome for the presidents, Dr. James Henningsen, president of the College of Central Florida (CF), said Friday. I feel very good about this; there is positive energy around us. He chairs the policy and advocacy committee on legislative matters for the Florida College System Council of Presidents and explained the compromise. The Senate will repeal the mandate of a financial penalty on colleges for existing bachelor degree programs about $3.4million statewide as well as dropping a provision removing the authority of the state Board of Education to approve new bachelor programs. In exchange, the college presidents agreed to a one-year moratorium on approving new bachelordegree programs. It will not affect any existing programs, Henningsen said, though it does curtail our ability to offer additional bachelor degree programs. CF had been considering offering a four-year criminal justice degree. Henningsen said they will conduct a review of existing programs with the Legislature. We welcome a review, he said. There was concern some colleges had gone too far mission creep in terms of Right place, right time MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleAndy Houston will soon step down from his position as city manager in Crystal River.

Does continuing to operate the Central Landfill provide the best overall value to the residents and businesses of the county, or should the county consider outsourcing or regionalizing waste disposal? 2. What costs and services could a contractor offer with outsourcing or regionalizing waste disposal? If some services were contracted, what services and costs would the county need to provide to retain the current level of services for residents and businesses? 3. What other solid waste program changes, including implementing universal solid waste collection, should the county consider and what long-term impact would these program WHAT: Citrus County Boar d of County Commissioners meeting.

Health-Law Change: The House on April 3 voted, 248-179, to raise from 30 to 40 the hours worked each week to qualify as full time under the Affordable Care Act. Backers said this would protect paychecks by removing an incentive for employers to reduce hours in order to avoid ACA penalties. A yes vote was to pass the GOP bill (HR 2575) over Congressional Budget Office projections that it would raise the national debt by $73.7 billion over 10 years. The bill is expected to die in the Senate. Rich Nugent, Yes. Gender Bias in Health Policies: The House on April 3 defeated, 191-232, a Democratic bid to prohibit HR 2575 (above) from repealingpopular Affordable Care Act features such as bans on gender bias and coverage denials based on pre-existing conditions. A yes vote backed the Democratic motion. Nugent, No. U.S. Aid to Ukraine: The House on April 1 approved, 378-34, $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees and at least $50 million in direct aid for Ukraine. A yes vote was to send President Obama a bill (HR 4152) that also expands U.S. economic sanctions on Russia in response to its incursion into Ukraine. Nugent, Yes. Dynamic Scoring Budget Doctrine: The House on April 4 passed, 224-182, a bill requiring the Congressional Budget Office to use dynamic scoring, a tenet of supply-side economics, as one of its tools for forecasting the impact of proposed legislation on economic growth. A yes vote endorsed the view that tax and spending cuts always pay for themselves by stimulating economic growth, a doctrine that the CBO and mainstream economists say is not empirically valid. The bill (HR 1874) is expected to die in the Senate. Nugent, Yes. Extended Jobless Aid: The Senate on April 3 voted, 61-35, to advance a bill (HR 3979) providing jobless assistance to millions of the long-term unemployed whose eligibility for extended benefits has expired. A yes vote backed a bill to provide jobless checks retroactively from Dec. 28 through May 31. A final Senate vote on the bill was expected the following week. Nelson, Yes; Rubio, No. Key votes ahead: In the week of April 7, the House will take up a budget resolution authored by Rep.

ONLINE POLL RESULTS ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerThey may have started out small, but they are mighty. In October, the Riptide Percussion Theater (RPT Percussion) ensemble began practicing for the Florida Federation of Colorguard Circuits (FFCC) with only seven members. RPT Percussion is under the 501(c)3 nonprofit umbrella of Paradigm Performance Groups, which is a Central Florida percussion ensemble. It is based in Leesburg and is for anyone 14 to 18 years of age; however, more than half of the members are Citrus County residents, according to RPT Percussion director Vic Kulinski. Today, the ensemble has 22 members, and they are drumming their way to the WGI World Championships in Dayton, Ohio, on Saturday. Last week, they placed first out of 32 at the FFCC, which qualified them for the world championship. A lot of people know us but we have never explored outside of our area, Kulinski said. Now we have decided to go to the world championships and take it. Kulinski described the ensemble as a marching band without woodwinds, with some dancers who do props, dancing and tricks in front of the ensemble. The show this year is called Bizzaro, he said. They do drum movements while incorporating dance moves, all while playing their instruments. We also will have dancers on pogo sticks, juggling or on stilts. When people walk away, they may not know what we are drumming, per se, but they are going to walk away and remember us. The ensemble has been practicing several days a week since January. The kids have fun with what they do, Kulinski said. They are learning a craft that some will continue with later on in life. Mostly, its about the memories that they can take away. RPT Percussion leaves Florida on Tuesday in hopes of not only coming home with a new title, but with a collection of scholarships, plaques, memories and much more. For more information, call 407-520-9051 or visit and search for RPT Percussion. Special to the ChronicleThe Riptide Percussion Theater ensemble has drummed its way to first place at the Florida Federation of Colorguard Circuits Championships and is headed to the WGI World Championships in Dayton, Ohio, this week. Drummers roll to world championships Special to the ChroniclePersons with developmental disabilities (autism, intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, Prader-Willi, and Down syndrome) often require support throughout their lives. Florida provides that support through the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD) and through programs in local schools. The Family Care Council (FCC), comprised of selfadvocates and family members of developmentally disabled individuals, who are appointed by the governor, is charged with helping those individuals and families access and understand the programs offered by APD, while providing oversight and advice to APD staff. All FCC meetings are from 10 a.m. to noon the second Monday monthly and are open to the public. At 10 a.m. Monday, April 14, in room 115 of Withlacoochee Technical Institute in Inverness, Citrus County Schools Interagency Council START will host the FCC meeting. This meeting will give developmentally disabled persons and their families the chance to learn how APD and area schools work together to provide services, how to apply for services, the status of those persons on the wait list or already receiving funding, and how will the latest legislative changes and funding affect all APD-eligible persons. Developmentally disabled individuals from birth to age 22 receive the majority of services from local schools through Exceptional Student Education. Once these students turn 14, they begin to plan their transition into adult life. They, and their families, begin to learn about and transition to those community supports that will take the place of services provided by the schools such as transportation, social/leisure opportunities and continued education. START meets three times a year and provides a forum for students/families, community agencies and organizations and ESE staff to meet and plan student transitions. For information about the joint meeting, call FCC member Stephanie Hopper at 352-344-0288 or D.J. Bryan, ESE Department, at 352-726-1931, ext. 2331. Councils for families, schools team up for services meeting StateBRIEFS Jeb Bush says hell make decision on bid this yearWASHINGTON Jeb Bush says all the speculation about whether hell run for president in 2016 is actually getting him more attention than if he had already entered the race. The former Republican governor of Florida said thats not by design, and that hell make his decision before years end. He told Fox News Channel in an interview airing Sunday that the state of politics is crazy right now. Bush says one factor in his decision will be whether he can deliver an optimistic, hopeful message without getting drawn into a political mud fight. He says the other main factor in his decision will be whether its OK with his family if he ran. Bush has antagonized many Republicans by supporting an immigration overhaul and educational standards for kindergarten through 12th grade known as Common Core. On immigration, he said that those who come into the country illegally generally do so because they had no other means to provide for their family, and what they did is not a felony. Its an act of love. Its an act of commitment to your family, Bush said. I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime. There should be a price paid, but it shouldnt rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families. The interview with Bush occurred at his fathers presidential library during the celebration of the 25th anniversary of George. H. W. Bushs presidency.Bill takes on unlicensed health clinics in stateTALLAHASSEE There is one simple way for a Florida medical clinic to avoid being licensed and undergoing an annual inspection: Dont accept insurance. A bill moving through the Legislature would close that loophole for so-called cash-only clinics, which can escape government oversight because the statutory definition of a clinic is interpreted as an operation that takes third-party insurance. The bill (SB 746) sponsored by Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood, would require that all medical clinics be subject to licensure, renewal and inspection, whether they accept insurance or not. Many of the cash-only clinics are run by business people with no connection to the medical field, but must hire a licensed doctor to oversee the operation and sign prescriptions. Because the clinics arent licensed, the state doesnt know how many exist. Lerer named president of Florida Blue insuranceJACKSONVILLE The states largest insurer has a new president. Florida Blue announced this week that Dr. Ren Lerer has been appointed president. Lerers duties also carry over as president of the GuideWell group. He will report to CEO Pat Geraghty and start May 1. Lerer was previously the chairman and CEO of Magellan Health Services. Magellan is a leading national health care management organization or HMO. Earlier in his career he co-founded Internet HealthCare Group, a health care technology venture fund. He holds a medical degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo and is board-certified in internal medicine. From wire reports Jeb Bushformer governor of Florida.

MEADOWCREST BLVD., CRYSTAL RIVER, FL 34429 PERIODICAL POSTAGE PAID AT INVERNESS, FL SECOND CLASS PERMIT #114280 CITRUSCOUNTY Florida' s BestCommunity Newspaper Serving Floridas Best Community ENTERTAINMENT Writer Peter Matthiessen diesNEW YORK Peter Matthiessen, a rich mans son who spurned a life of leisure and embarked on extraordinary physical and spiritual quests while producing such acclaimed books as The Snow Leopard and At Play in the Fields of the Lord, died Saturday. He was 86. His publisher Geoff Kloske of Riverhead Books said Matthiessen, who had been diagnosed with leukemia, was ill for some months. He died at a hospital near his home on Long Island. Peter was a force of nature, relentlessly curious, persistent, demanding of himself and others, his literary agent, Neil Olson said in a statement. But he was also funny, deeply wise and compassionate. Few authors could claim such a wide range of achievements. Matthiessen helped found The Paris Review, one of the most influential literary magazines, and won National Book Awards for The Snow Leopard, his spiritual account of the Himalayas, and for the novel Shadow Country. He also was a longtime liberal who befriended Cesar Chavez and wrote a defense of Indian activist Leonard Peltier, In the Spirit of Crazy Horse, that led to a highly publicized, and unsuccessful, lawsuit by an FBI agent who claimed Matthiessen had defamed him. In Paradise, which he had expected to be his last novel, will be published next week. The book was inspired by a visit in the 1990s he made to Auschwitz. Matthiessen was married three times, most recently to Maria Eckhart whom he wed in 1980. He had four children, two each from his first two marriages, and two stepchildren from his third marriage.

think in the next five years you will see real periods of opportunity. CHRONICLE: You seem to have set the city on this path of redevelopment and restructured a lot of things the city needed. Do you think the city will stay on this path? HOUSTON: Actually, the city council did those things, but my personal opinion is the citys infrastructure is in pretty good shape. We have done most of the major upgrades: Cutler Spur Boulevard, upgrades to our water plant and we have replaced water pipes. So, the infrastructure is in good shape and the finances are in good shape. In my mind, in the foreseeable future is going to be the commercial waterfront and U.S. Highway 19 commercial corridor. I think with the national economy finally starting to show some legs and that economic recovery getting to this part of the state, I think there are going to be some opportunities in the next five years that we didnt see in the past three to five years. CHRONICLE: What kinds of programs do you think could be implemented to take advantage of these positive developments? HOUSTON: I think again if you look at our waterfront plan, which wants to deal with storm water on a consolidated basis rather than site to site, it is going to make it much more feasible to put new things on some of the vacant properties and develop some of the sites that are there now. U.S.19 is going to be a little more difficult. If you look at the old 1950s, s and s strip mall development there; if you go to Pasco County, you know that is a tough thing to overcome. You are starting to see new businesses coming into those old shopping centers; we are hearing of new businesses coming in at some of the vacant properties. I think theres going to be some opportunities. The mall is starting to get legs back underneath it. I think the market itself will push a lot of that, and as long as we are not unreasonable in our zoning and land development requirements, I think it will move forward and I dont that is going to be an issue. CHRONICLE: You are the longest-serving city manager in the citys recent history. Why do you think you gelled with the council? HOUSTON: I think the council that hired me wanted to get past the history that was here. And I was aware of the history that has been. You know Ron Kitchen was mayor when I got appointed. He met me at the front door of City Hall my very first day and he pledged his full support to help me be successful. I have had that support from Jim Farley (the current mayor) the last four years that hes been the mayor and I have had that support from just about every council member that has been on the eight years that I have been here. So I think it all starts with: does your elected body want to see stability and do they want to see progress and I think that has been the case here. I just happened to be at the right place at the right time. CHRONICLE: So, what is next for you? HOUSTON: I am not going anywhere for the foreseeable future. My wife and I like Crystal River. She is down in Tampa today dealing with a sick granddaughter, and if anything moves us out of Crystal River, it will be to move a little closer to Tampa and be more available for that kind of duty. I have not said I will never work again, but its probably unlikely that I will work again. But if the right thing came along, I might do something; but I am not interested in getting into city management in another city. I think if I was interested in staying in city management, I would be perfectly all right staying here. I think Crystal River has a lot to offer. CHRONICLE: What will you miss the most about your work here and doing the kind of work you do in general? HOUSTON: I have been fortunate to work with very good people on the staff. I have been fortunate to have good relations with most in the business community. My relationship with council has, for the most part, been very good. So you miss those things. I like seeing projects get done and I think we have accomplished pretty significant projects, but I think improving my golf game will be a pretty significant project (laughter), and hopefully I will have some success with that.

Atlas Drive, Homosassa. Many members of the public attended to see the recently opened free dental clinic that has so far served 30 patients and will try to serve at least 50 more by the end of April. The clinic has two chairs and space for a third chair when donations allow the provision. Papp said patients who meet the criteria are offered free extractions and fillings. It is hoped in the future to broaden the range of services. Anyone who would like to join the waiting list for treatment is asked to call 352-422-4327. Crime Section, was leading the investigation Sunday at the homeless camp. We have a homeless camp thats set up in the woods back here where we have some people that live, Smith said. Deputies were out here investigating an unrelated domestic issue and in doing so made an arrest and after doing that got some information from some witnesses that the person we arrested, Benjamin Dick, had actually murdered his mother and buried her somewhere in this location. Deputies searched the area proactively and found what appeared to be a grave, some dirt that had been moved. Early this morning is when we actually found the remains. According to what witnesses told law enforcement officers, Dick and another homeless man, Shannon William Parker, 28, were drinking with Dicks mother, along with other witnesses at the campsite. Dick and his girlfriend had an argument and Dick began choking his girlfriend, according to a CCSO media release. Detectives said that after Dicks mother made derogatory statements about his girlfriend, Dick attacked his mother. During the struggle, Dick and his mother went into a ravine behind a tent. Dick was alleged in the report to have strangled and stabbed Brooks several times, leading to her death. Dicks girlfriend sustained non-life-threatening injuries. Dick was arrested on several charges including second-degree murder of his mother. Parker was arrested for his role in disposing of the body charged with accessory after the fact and witness tampering. On Sunday morning, detectives processed the scene and conducted more interviews with witnesses. Commander Buddy Grant said he didnt know what would drive a son to kill his mother. Our job now is to put a good case together for the state attorneys office and to make sure we bring justice to this victim, Grant said. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call 911 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 888ANY-TIPS. DEATHContinued from Page A1 CHRIS VAN ORMER/ChronicleLt. Brad Smith, Major Crime Section, leading the crime scene investigation Sunday at the homeless camp behind Crystal Square Plaza off U.S. 19, said that Benjamin Dick, 23, a homeless man, has been charged with the homicide of his mother, Jennifer Brooks, 42, whose body had been exhumed from a shallow grave at the campsite by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office.

offering bachelor degrees. We are willing to look at that and have some dialog on that, Henningsen said. These degrees provide an avenue for students who are place-bound and dont have the ability to attend a local university. He also cited the direct connection of these degrees to local workforce needs, a point made by Don Taylor, executive director of the Citrus County Economic Development Council. The EDC opposed the original legislation. Taylor, who also serves on the CF Board of Trustees, said those programs have had a positive effect on the local economy. They are not trying to compete, he said. The programs put people to work in the local economy. He said now they have a year to educate legislators on the importance of these programs. Previous legislation had provided state colleges the ability to offer four-year degrees about seven years ago. It became an issue in November 2012 when Gov.Rick Scott challenged state colleges to offer a bachelors degree for just $10,000 in fields that will provide graduates with the best opportunity for employment. By January 2013, Dr. Vernon Lawter, College of Central Florida-Citrus Campus vice president, announced CF had accepted the challenge and would offer the Bachelor of Applied Science in Business and Organizational Management degree for $10,000. Other former community colleges around the state followed, accepting the challenge. Plus, those colleges, including CF, added bachelor degree programs outside the $10,000 range to meet regional workforce needs. For example, at its March meeting, the state Board of Education approved baccalaureate proposals from Eastern Florida State College, Florida Gateway College and Santa Fe College. Overall, according to the Florida system, 24 colleges have been approved to offer a total of more than 170 baccalaureate programs Since spring of 2011, CF has offered bachelor degrees in business and organizational management; and, early childhood education since the fall of 2011. A bachelor of science nursing degree program is scheduled to begin in the fall.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty@, APRIL7, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESTATE/LOCAL 000HSRW Inverness 3350 E Gulf to Lake Hwy, Unit 2 352.400.4249 Chiefland 2471 N Young Blvd. 352.356.4075 Lecanto 2708 W Woodview Lane 352.364.4341 Make an appointment today for your FREE Hearing Screening and Demonstration the first and only Hearing Aid of its the first and only Hearing Aid of its kind with direct connect technology kind with direct connect technology (No other devices needed for connectivity) (No other devices needed for connectivity) FREE no-obligation hearing tests going on now!

Page A10MONDAY, APRIL 7, 2014 Thanks to volunteersFundraising is about more than raising money. When volunteers run flea markets, bake sales, arts, crafts, plant sales, sell raffle tickets, they are giving the public the opportunity to buy at especially low prices as most of these items are donated. Flea markets are the perfect incentive to clear out the garage and attic. The events also give people in the community a day out socializing. Then there are fundraising dinners prepared and served by volunteers of an organization or church. Those events held on church property bring the community into contact with the clergy and church members. There are times when one finds such a friendly attitude they decide to attend a service. Fundraising sales for charities wherever they are held bring the public into contact with that organizations activities and cause, whereby the public will ask questions and develop a real understanding and compassion for victims of a disease or the organizations acti vities. Then, there are animal shelter events, which are held on their grounds, or if elsewhere, where they have those adorable creatures with their pleading expressive eyes say take me home. Events at restaurants that offer a percentage of their food sales on a certain date to a cause are pleasurable times, and the increase in customers supporting this effort is also helping to increase employment. There are many other types of fundraisers that are fun (theater, shows, fishing tournaments, etc.) and give more hours of work for the staff. You have the knowledge that you have helped a worthy cause and have had a wonderful time. These events could not have been held without the many hours and days of help provided by dedicated volunteers, often for days before and after the event. It is fun joining together and sorting, pricing, and setting up items on display, as everyone chitchats to make time go faster. There are also volunteers approaching businesses for donations as prizes for an event. Thats when you must use your most heart-appealing approach for what you truly feel is a worthy cause. Thanks to all the volunteers out there for your many hours and often weeks of work in a cause you truly believe in.Margo Blum Homosassa Rep. Mike Rogers, the Michigan Republican who heads the House Intelligence Committee, recently announced hes quitting his job to host a radio talk show. Sure, he will make a lot more money in the private sector and leave a dismally dysfunctional institution that is now viewed favorably by only a handful of Americans. And since House Republicans foolishly limit committee chairmen to six-year terms, Rogers would have to yield his powerful post in two years anyway. Still, its shocking and revealing when a senior lawmaker thinks he can wield more influence running a radio show than a major Congressional committee. In an interview with theWashington Post, Rogers boasted about the very large national platform he would acquire to talk to people in their cars and living rooms and homes every single night. His goal is to move the needle on the 2016 elections and the conversation ... about Americas future. In one sense, Rogers is wellqualified for his new gig. He appeared on major Sunday talk shows 26 times last year and another eight times already this year more than any other political figure. But in another sense, Rogers might be too reasonable or thoughtful for a medium dominated by devoted ideologues who divide the world into black and white, us and them. Talk radio is the functional equivalent of pro wrestling, just without the capes and masks: a pre-scripted morality play where everyone knows the outline and the outcome. And cheers anyway. Speaking on WJR in Detroit, Rogers criticized his future talk radio colleagues as being too negative and failing to offer solutions to pressing problems. You have to move the ball forward, he said. That voice is missing. Yes it is. Rogers, for example, supports a bold American role in the world and sharply criticizes Republicans like Sen. Rand Paul who favor a more isolationist approach. In the Postinterview, he derided celeb rity politicians who refuse to engage in substantive dialogue or recognize reality. Some of the biggest casualties in all that have been facts, he said. One case of facts becoming casualties is the right-wing obsession with the tragic death of three Americans in Benghazi, Libya. Rogers critics say he has not pursued the issue vigorously enough, but the chairman insists hes conducted a very aggressive factbased investigation. What he wont do is bow to conspiracy theorists who wanted us to find conspiracy A, B and C. That approach elicits praise from committee Democrats like Luis Gutierrez of Illinois, who called Rogers a voice for moderation and consensus building. Moderation? Consensus building? On talk radio? Is the man mad? The medium thrives on exactly the opposite approach. Extremism, not moderation. Polarization, not consensus building. Hosts and listeners inhabit a vast echo chamber where both groups sing at top volume from the same sacred hymnal. As media critic David Carr of the New York Timesobserved, The polarized political map is now accompanied by a media ecosystem that is equally gerrymandered into districts of selfreinforcing discourse. He cites a recent Pew survey: 78 percent of Sean Hannitys listeners call themselves conservatives and only 5 percent are liberals; Rush Limbaughs followers are almost as orthodox: 71 percent on the right, 9 percent on the left. Liberals have their own echo chamber, but arent as rigid or influential. Rachel Maddows modest audience on MSNBC breaks down as 57 percent liberal, 31 percent moderate and 7 percent conservative. This media ecosystem is bad for democracy. Voters are not challenged in their assumptions or convictions. Candidates are driven to extremes to appease the Radio Ranters see Mitt Romneys lurch rightward in the GOP primaries. When facts become casualties, consensus becomes impossible. As Carr puts it: The village common you know, the place where we all meet to discuss our problems, relying on the same set of facts has shrunk to the size of a postage stamp, surrounded by the huge gated communities of like minds who never venture into the great beyond. Talk radio, and its close cousin, cable TV, are not the only culprits here. In the world of social media, with a vast menu of tweets and blog posts to choose from, its all too easy for individuals to block out dissent and listen only to preachers who pander to their existing fears and feelings. If Mike Rogers can introduce a cleansing voice of moderation and consensus building into the polluted stream of talk radio, good for him. But dont bet on it.Steve and Cokie Roberts can be contacted by email at The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men the conviction and the will to carry on.Walter Lippmann, New York Herald Tribune, April 14, 1945 When facts become casualties CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M. Williamson You may differ with my choice, but not my right to choose. David S. Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARDGerry Mulligan ....................................publisherMike Arnold ..............................................editorCharlie Brennan ........................managing editorCurt Ebitz ..................................citizen memberMac Harris ................................citizen memberRebecca Martin ........................citizen memberBrad Bautista ....................................copy chiefLogan Mosby ..............................features editor C.R. city manager calmed the storm, accomplished goals The announcement last week that Crystal River City Manager Andy Houston is going to retire should give pause to all residents of the community. Houstons leadership in Crystal River produced eight years of stability in a city that struggled for two decades before that. And during the stretch of stability, Crystal River began to move forward and achieve important goals. The 62-year-old city manager is not leaving because there is a crisis at city hall; he is retiring because there is not. And that may be his greatest achievement. Prior to Houstons service, there was constant turmoil on the council. Each time a different faction would win a majority, the first vote was to fire the previous city manager. The city hall revolving door saw more than 10 city managers deposed by city council members who were unclear on how to do their own jobs. When Houston came to Crystal River after 30 years of service in St. Petersburg, he was able to use his professional experience and unassuming style to build a bridge to both council factions. His message was pretty simple: he suggested the council try to work together and get some things done to benefit the taxpayers. Consider for a moment what happened: Houston and the city led the effort to purchase Three Sister Springs and protect it from development. He pulled the cobwebs off of a $10 million state grant that had sat unused for seven years and began to expand the city sewer system. More than 500 septic tanks have been removed from Kings Bay as a result of the effort. He negotiated a deal to use the citys treated effluent to cool the Duke Power energy site north of Crystal River. Through arduous negotiations he got the power company, the Southwest Florida Water Management District, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the city to kick in millions of dollars to make the project happen. It will save an estimated 1 million gallons of water a day that is now being pumped from the aquifer. He pushed through the Cutler Spur improvement project. He worked with the council to move law enforcement services to the sheriff and save city taxpayers millions. He worked with the city CRA to begin making improvements to the downtown area. Later this month, a longawaited redevelopment plan will be introduced to council. The list of accomplishments is long, and Houston would be the first to give all of the credit to the city council members. And thats part of the secret of his style he has his ego in check so he is quick to give others credit for all that is accomplished. But the progress would not have happened if Houston had not figured out how to end the turmoil at city hall. There have been bumps along the way, but much good work has been done. His service to the city has been commendable and we can only hope that a replacement with similar skills can be found. Andy Houston has left his mark on Crystal River and we are all better off for his efforts. THE ISSUE:Andy Houstons retirement.OUR OPINION:City manager leaves a legacy of achievement.

Concerts for charityLast week David Hershey, Harry Hershey, Karen and Ben Medrano, and Karen and Bob Batten put on three concerts. The first concert was given at The First Presbyterian Church of Inverness where there was standing room only. The next concert was given at The First Methodist Church of Hernando where we had over 300 people. On Saturday we were at the club house in Arbor Lakes where we had a full house of over 90 people. I would like say that the concerts were well received. David Hershey, who plays the trumpet, was our featured artist and had a standing ovation at each concert. David has performed with many known stars, playing lead trumpet and directing the bands on The Carnival Cruise Line, The Sovereign of the Seas and the Fountain Blue in Miami to name a few. These concerts were free and the musicians were not paid for their time. A Love Offering was collected at each concert and totaled over $3,000. Each church gave the money to their favorite charity. We hope we can do this again next year and perhaps add a few more places to play.Harry Hershey HernandoAnother huge successOn Jan. 25, the American Legion Post 237 Riders Chapter 237 Beverly Hills held the fourth annual Poker Run to benefit Hospice of Citrus and the Nature Coast and Moffitt Cancer Center Ovarian Cancer Research.

Philly police: Tot, 2, kills sisterPHILADELPHIA A 2year-old boy apparently shot and killed his 11-yearold sister while they and their siblings played with a gun inside a Philadelphia home, police said Sunday. Jamara Stevens was fatally shot Saturday morning with a gun that police believe was brought into the home by the mothers boyfriend a few hours earlier. The mother was home with her four children in a master bedroom, Lt. John Walker said. Police said the shooting occurred when she left the room at about 10 a.m. to use the bathroom. The 2-year-old pointed the loaded, cocked gun in the direction of his sister and the gun discharged, according to investigators. Police believe the mothers boyfriend had brought the gun to the house and stashed it on top of a refrigerator. Its not immediately clear who brought it to the bedroom.100 arrested in SoCal brawlISLA VISTA, Calif. About 100 people were arrested and at least 44 people were taken to the hospital during a weekend college party in Southern California that devolved into a rockand bottle-throwing melee, authorities said. The violence broke out in the densely populated beachside community of Isla Vista around 9:30p.m. Saturday during the annual spring break party known as Deltopia, the Santa Barbara County Sheriffs Office said. Sheriffs spokeswoman Kelly Hoover said things escalated after a University of California, Santa Barbara, police officer was hit in the face with a backpack filled with large bottles of alcohol. Authorities said some members of the crowd of 15,000 then began throwing rocks, bricks and bottles at officers, lighting fires and damaging law enforcement vehicles.

The Shiite groups fighters were instrumental in helping Assads forces dislodge opposition fighters from their strongholds along the Lebanon-Syria border. However, Hezbollahs public role in the 3-year-old conflict has inflamed sectarian tensions in Lebanon. The countrys Sunni Muslims support the Syrian rebels.Bahamas police find burnt bodies NASSAU, Bahamas Police in the Bahamas say the badly burnt bodies of four people have been found on a remote southern cay of the archipelago. The Royal Bahamas Defense Force said Sunday that the charred corpses of three men and one woman were found on Anguilla Cay. The barren, uninhabited cay is relatively close to Cuba. Lt. Commander Raymond King said tires appeared to have been set alight on top of the bodies. The corpses were brought to New Providence, the main island of the country of more than 700 islands, islets and cays off Floridas eastern coast.Hagel to tour Chinas carrierTOKYO U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is expected to get a rare tour of Chinas first aircraft carrier Monday, becoming the first foreign visitor to go aboard the ship. A senior defense official said Hagel requested the visit. China spent a decade refurbishing the derelict Soviet-era carrier. It was commissioned as the Liaoning in 2012 and moved to Qingdao the following year. Its part of a major expansion of the Chinese navy that includes sophisticated new surface ships and submarines. Hagels request for the tour came a day after telling reporters that China must better respect its neighbors, alluding to Beijings ongoing territorial dispute with Japan and others over remote islands in the East China Sea. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressWASHINGTON Lacking congressional support to raise wages or end gender pay disparities, President Barack Obama is again imposing his policies on federal contractors, in keeping with presidents tradition of exerting their powers on a fraction of the economy they directly control. Obama will sign an executive order Tuesday barring federal contractors from retaliating against employees who discuss their pay with each other. The order is similar to language in a Senate bill aimed at closing a pay gap between men and women. That measure is scheduled for a vote this week, but is unlikely to pass. The president also will direct the Labor Department to adopt rules requiring federal contractors to provide compensation data based on sex and race. He plans to sign the two executive orders during an event at the White House where he will be joined by Lilly Ledbetter, whose name appears on a pay discrimination law Obama signed in 2009. The moves showcase Obamas efforts to seek action without congressional approval and demonstrate that even without legislation, the president can drive economic policy. At the same time, they show the limits of his ambition when he doesnt have the support of Congress for his initiatives. Republicans say Obama is pushing his executive powers too far and should do more to work with Congress. His new executive orders are sure to lead to criticism that he is placing an undue burden on companies and increasing their costs. Federal contracting covers about one-quarter of the U.S. workforce and includes companies ranging from Boeing to small-parts suppliers and service providers. As a result, presidential directives can have a wide and direct impact. Such actions also can be largely symbolic, designed to spur action in the broader economy. This really is about giving people access to more information both to help them make decisions at the policy level but also for individuals, said Heather Boushey, executive director and chief economist at the Washington Center for Equitable Growth. She has been working with the administration to get compensation information about the nations workforce. This is definitely an encouraging first step, she said. Federal contractors, however, worry that additional compensation data could be used to fuel wage-related lawsuits, said James Plunkett, director of labor policy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Obamas go-it-alone strategy is hardly new. The most enduring workplace anti-discrimination laws began with an executive order signed by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in June 25, 1941, outlawing discrimination based on race, color, creed and national origin in the federal government and defense industries. President John F. Kennedy broadened that in 1961 with an order that required government contractors to take affirmative action to ensure hiring without regard to their race, creed, color or national origin. President George W. Bush also acted on his own when he ordered federal contractors to ensure that their workers were in the country legally by requiring the use of an electronic employment-verification system. Jeffrey Hirsch, a former lawyer with the National Labor Relations Board, said presidential executive orders that affect federal contracting workforces can over time demonstrate that those practices are less onerous than initially imagined. Afghan election hailed Taliban threat remains Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan Afghans and the international community hailed its presidential election as a triumph of democracy over violence Sunday, despite complaints about ballot shortages and sporadic fraud after millions of people braved a Taliban threat to vote for a new president. But some cautioned against declaring a premature defeat of the Islamic militants. Securing the vote was a test for Afghan government forces as they prepare to take full responsibility for their own security as the U.S. and allied forces end their combat mission at the end of this year. The consensus was that they largely passed, though there was sporadic violence. A roadside bomb hit a pickup truck transporting ballot boxes Sunday in the northern province of Kunduz, killing three people, officials said. But the major attacks that had been feared did not materialize. This in itself is a victory over violence and a victory over all those who wanted to deter democracy by threats and violence, said Thijs Berman, the head of the European Unions election assessment team in Kabul. Electoral officials, mean while, urged patience, saying officials continued to log complaints and tally ballots. The ballots were coming from more than 20,000 polling stations nationwide, some in extremely remote and rural areas. They were being transported to tally centers in all 34 provinces before the results reach Kabul. Some candidate forecasts and partial results are expected in the coming days. Noor Mohammad Noor, a spokesman for the Independent Election Commission, said preliminary results were due April24 and final results will be announced May14. Ships race to investigate signals in jet search Associated PressPERTH, Australia A British navy ship with sophisticated sound-locating equipment arrived Monday in a patch of the southern Indian Ocean to determine whether underwater sounds picked up by a Chinese ship crew using a hand-held device came from the missing Malaysia Airlines black boxes. Britain reported the HMS Echo had arrived in the new area. It will be in a race against time to determine what the noises are, because the battery-powered pingers that emit sounds from the black boxes are on the verge of dying out. Meanwhile, the Australian navy ship Ocean Shield, which is carrying high-tech sound detectors from the U.S. Navy, was investigating a sound it picked up in another area about 345 miles away. Australian authorities said once it had finished that investigation, it would head the new area to help the HMS Echo. Searchers on Monday were anticipating good weather, with nine military planes, three civilian planes and a total of 14 ships expected to search for Flight 370, which vanished a month ago. Hopes of finding the plane were given a boost after a Chinese ship picked up an electronic pulsing signal on Friday and again Saturday. The Ocean Shield detected a third signal in the different area Sunday, the head of the multinational search said. The two black boxes contain flight data and cockpit voice recordings that could solve one of the most baffling mysteries in modern aviation: who or what caused Flight 370 to veer radically off course and vanish March 8 while traveling from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing with 239 people on board. But there were questions about whether any of the sounds were the breakthrough that searchers are desperately seeking or just another dead end in a hunt seemingly full of them, with experts expressing doubt that the equipment aboard the Chinese ship was capable of picking up signals from the black boxes. This is an important and encouraging lead, but one which I urge you to treat carefully, said retired Australian Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, who is coordinating the search out of Perth, Australia.

PETERSBURG Yu Darvish showed no rust after missing three weeks. Darvish allowed seven hits over seven innings in his season debut, Elvis Andrus hit a tworun homer, and the Texas Rangers avoided a three-game sweep by beating the Tampa Bay Rays 3-0 on Sunday. He was in control of the game, Rangers manager Ron Washington said. He was using his pitches. He was throwing strikes. And thats what he does. Darvish (1-0) struck out six and walked one. Sidelined by neck stiffness, it was his first outing since a spring training game on March 16. I didnt feel anything unusual, Darvish said through an interpreter. Darvish got his 500th career strikeout, coming in 401 2/3 innings, by fanning David DeJesus and Wil Myers in the first. According to the Rangers, it is the fewest innings for a starter to reach 500 strikeouts in major league history. Andrus put the Rangers up 2-0 with his homer off Joel Peralta (0-1) in the eighth. Donnie Murphy made it 3-0 on an RBI infield during the ninth. Hes going to get five a year, and today was one of them, Washington said of Andrus homer. It was huge. We needed it. Today, he drove the bus. Neal Cotts replaced Alexi Ogando for the Rangers with two on and two outs in the eighth, and struck out Matt Joyce on a 3-2 pitch. Joakim Soria pitched the ninth for his first save. Alex Cobb scattered three hits, walked one and struck out six in seven shutout innings for the Rays. Unfortunately for us, he was really on, Cobb said of Darvish. Only one runner reached second against Cobb. He didnt give up any pitches, Andrus said. I thought he was painting the whole game.

After narrowly coming up short with top-three finishes in each of his first three years playing the tournament, Brown who opened the two-round event on Saturday with a one-under-par 71 began his Sunday outing with three bogeys in five holes. But Brown remained confident, and eventually steadied himself into four birdies for a round-low of 72, defeating fellow Inverness golfer Jason Counsil by three strokes (143-146) for the championship at the 7 Rivers Golf & Country Club in Crystal River. The golf course played fast and firm all weekend, and benefitted those willing to soften their approach and lay it up short when needed. You really couldnt challenge the putts, or youd end up three-putting it, said Brown, who finished second last year to Kelly Gosse. I started out kind of rough (Sunday) because I was kind of scared of the greens. I was going the wrong way fast, but I knew I was hitting it good. I just had to be patient. Its a difficult golf course. Youve got hazards going down both sides of the fairways, so you have to hit it really straight. Ive kind of had trouble with that in the past, but this weekend I managed to drive it pretty well. With a two-under 70 on Saturday, Counsil fired the tournaments lowest round, but felt the courses unforgiving terrain late in his second round. After entering the 15th hole tied with Brown for the weekend, he finished with a 76 on Sunday, edging out third places Scott Lynch (74-77-151) by two shots. (Brown) made a 20-footer on 15, and I had my first three-putt in two days, said Counsil, who pulled out his driver just four times on Saturday. Thats where the game changed. He played very, very good golf. I had actually been struggling before the tournament, and I was Brian BrownWon first-ever Presidential Invite.

The Inverness sprintcar driver had to overcome a disobedient ride, a ferocious late push from Shane Butler and five restarts in the first 15 laps in order to hold his position in Saturdays 30-lap NonWinged Sprints event at the Citrus County Speedway. But Bradley had what it took to lead after every lap, which required fending off Butler from the inside on the penultimate lap, in claiming the third leg of the Citrus sprint series. Im so excited and psyched! Bradley said in Victory Lane. The car was all over the track. But Ill take it when I can. I wasnt expecting to get that one. Butler fought his way into second place by lap seven, but was sent to the back for a wreck on lap 15. He urgently tore through the field over the ensuing 10 laps, eventually getting back to second after making his way past Richie Corr on lap 26. I love this race track, Butler said. I got my first junior sprint win here back in 1998. I was just glad we were able to rebound to come back. Corr was equally happy to take third, one place ahead of Inverness Herb Neumann Jr. We had a really loose racecar, he said. A couple times I thought it was completely unsalvageable. But we came home third tonight. I love it! Sport Wilson used Saturdays Pure Stock race to prepare his car for next Saturdays 50-lapper. Along the way, he won himself a trophy in his first outing of the season, but not without a relentless battle versus Floral Citys Karlin Ray. Wilson, in his familys No. 185, traversed the entire field in grabbing the lead by lap four, before surrendering it to Ray midway through the event. On lap 18, Wilson knifed through traffic around turn three, using the back of the field See SPRINTS/ Page B3

Behind that dueling pair, Lecantos Happy Florian sustained his heat-winning momentum deep into the feature, as he cruised past pointsleader Larry Welter Sr. on lap 22 for a thirdplace finish. In Mini Stocks, Bushnells Bill Ryan, compiled an impressive lead on the back-half of a 25-lapper to add a feature win to his earlier heat win on the night. Belleviews Jason Terry notched second place in the feature, one spot ahead of heat-winner Jerry Daniels. Ryan has taken the checkered flag in two of his last three features, and has prevailed in three straight heat runs. Brooksvilles J.D. Goff pulled past divisionleader Tim Wilson and heat-winner Dora Thorne in the first half of the Street Stocks main event to capture his first feature win of the season. Wilson and Thorne rode side-by-side for four laps before Wilson eventually broke free and finished second. The Cars of Yesteryear race was more cuttingedge thrills than a museum of dusty antiques, as Pinellas Parks Steve Campbell surprised even himself when he threaded past then-leader Tim Bush on the final lap for a last-to-first triumph. I saw a chance to get up underneath the lap car, said Campbell, describing his inside-lane move against Bush. I took it and it worked out for me. Bush, who was down from Dayton, Ohio, put on a hard-charging performance of his own, coming up from the back to eventually get past Steve Parrish for the lead on lap 14. Tampas Doug LeCornu came in behind Bush for third place. Lakelands Drew Jackson and Stephanie Pope each drove a No. 73 Hornet to win the Pro and Rookie Hornet races, respectively. Next Saturdays racing lineup is headlined by the seasons first Joey Coulter Florida ProTruck Series 50, and includes a 50-lap Pure Stocks race as well as the Sportsman, Pro Figure Eight and Mini Stock classes. SPRINTSContinued from Page B1 Hall of Fame coach Jim Calhoun. Hopefully we have an opportunity to fall back on our defense, second-year coach Kevin Ollie said. We have been doing that the whole year. If Kentucky has a chance to win in the final minute, that defense better pay attention to guard Aaron Harrison, one of five freshmen starters. He has hit huge 3-pointers in the Wildcats last three games. Harrison rattled in a 26-footer with 5.7 seconds to go in the 74-73 win over Wisconsin in the semifinals. He made almost the exact same shot with 2.3 seconds left against Michigan for a 75-72 win that sent the Wildcats to the Final Four. Against Louisville, he hit a 3 with 39 seconds left to give Kentucky the lead for good in a 74-69. The biggest thing is hes not afraid to miss, Kentucky coach John Calipari said. Hes OK with it. Hes comfortable in his own skin. ... If youre going to make those kind of shots, you absolutely cannot be afraid to miss them. These two programs have combined to win six of the last 18 NCAA titles. Playing against Connecticut, I mean, Im just happy were still playing, Calipari said. Neither program could say that last year. Connecticut was banned from the postseason after failing to meet NCAA academic standard. It had practice limitations and lost a scholarship. The players could have transferred but didnt. The Huskies finished 20-10 in Ollies first year. They took the hit and made it back to the biggest stage. Its actually very impressive, NCAA president Mark Emmert said Sunday. To see that team hold together. I think its a commitment to those young men on that team that hung together. The leader of the group is All-American Shabazz Napier who leads the team in almost every statistical category. Hes the guy who makes the big shot or big pass. Fellow guard Ryan Boatright has taken some of the spotlight recently for his defensive performances against the likes of Keith Appling of Michigan State and Scottie Wilbekin of Florida. Defense is the biggest thing for me. The points will come, Boatright said. I want to make him uncomfortable, dont let him get in a rhythm or flow. Their guards, God blessed them with height and they will try to take advantage of smaller guys like us but Ive been the smaller guy my whole life and Ive never backed down. Kentucky is playing its best basketball lately, led by big man Julius Randle and the Harrison twins. We just had too much talent and we saw in spurts how good we could be, Randle said, so it just felt like it was a matter of time before it clicked. This is Caliparis fourth Final Four, but the first two Massachusetts in 1996 and Memphis in 2008 were vacated over NCAA rules violations. Now the Wildcats are on an 11-game winning streak in the NCAA tournament and they are one win from a ninth national championship for Kentucky. We all play the game of basketball to compete against the best, Napier said. This is one of them games. ... They worked hard to get to this point and we did too. Were going to do our best to get this W. doing the same thing for us. Tampa Bay had runners on second and third with one out in the fifth, but failed to score when Myers hit an infield pop fly and Ben Zobrist flew out. Darvish got three consecutive outs after allowing Evan Longorias double to lead off the sixth. He also worked out of a jam during the seventh after Ryan Hanigan hit a leadoff double. We just did not get the knocks when we needed it, Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said. The Rays were hitless in 10 at-bats with runners in scoring position against Darvish, and 0 for 11 overall.

Smith on the way to dealing the Knicks playoff hopes a big blow with a 102-91 victory on Sunday. Chris Bosh added 14 points and Ray Allen had 12 for the Heat, who are a full game ahead of Indiana and two up in the loss column in the East race. Smith made a Knicks-record 10 3-pointers, on an NBArecord 22 attempts, and finished with 32 points. Raymond Felton scored 14 for New York and Carmelo Anthony managed only 13, on 4 for 17 shooting. Anthony had two points after halftime, while James had 22. The Knicks (33-45) are two games behind Atlanta in the race for the final playoff spot, three in the loss column.Hawks 107, Pacers 88INDIANAPOLIS Jeff Teague scored 25 points in Atlantas rout of reeling Indiana, which was held to a franchise-low 23 points in the first half of an embarrassing performance on its home floor. The Hawks (34-42) have won three of four and extended their lead over the Knicks for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference to two full games. The Pacers (53-25) have lost four of five and fell a full game behind Miami in their quest for the No. 1 seed in the East. Paul George scored 18 points and David West had 17 on a night AllStar center Roy Hibbert did not play the final 30 minutes. Atlanta jumped to a 9-0 lead, extended the margin to 33-11 after one and 55-23 at the half.Rockets 130, Nuggets 125, OTHOUSTON James Harden had 32 points and Chandler Parsons scored eight points in overtime to lift Houston over Denver. Denver led by one in overtime when Houston made three consecutive 3-pointers to make it 130-122 with less than two minutes left. Parsons made the last two and high-fived with fans on the front row as he ran down the court after sinking the second. The Rockets trailed by eight late in regulation before using a 9-1 run, capped by a 3-pointer by Harden under heavy pressure from Randy Foye, to tie it at 117 with 7.1 seconds remaining. Evan Fournier scored 26 points and Aaron Brooks added 24 points and 15 assists against his former team.Spurs 112, Grizzlies 92SAN ANTONIO Kawhi Leonard matched his career high with 26 points, Manu Ginobili had a season-high 26 and San Antonio eased past Memphis after losing Tony Parker to injury. Parkers status is unknown after he was forced to leave with back spasms early in the first quarter. The All-Star point guard took a hard fall as he drove the lane, landing squarely on his back near the free throw line after being fouled by Memphis Mike Conley with 7:38 left. Parker remained on the court for about a minute, but rose and continued playing before exiting with 2:41 remaining in the first. Tim Duncan added 13 points for San Antonio (60-17), which bounced back after its franchiserecord, 19-game winning streak was snapped Wednesday in Oklahoma City. James Johnson had 20 points and Conley added 18 points for Memphis (45-32), which is chasing a playoff spot in the Western Conference.

It wasnt quite the blowout of the Clippers previous two wins 48 points on March 6 and 36 points on Jan. 10 but they were easily in command as the designated home team. J.J. Redick added 15 points and DeAndre Jordan had 11 points and 12 rebounds for the Pacific Division-winning Clippers, who improved to 32-6 at home. The injury-plagued Lakers were down to just eight players after guard Kent Bazemore got hurt in the second quarter. Jordan Hill led them with 22 points and Nick Young added 18 points off the bench.Mavs 93, Kings 91SACRAMENTO, Calif. Monta Ellis scored eight of his 23 points in the fourth quarter and Dallas kept its playoff position by beating Sacramento for its third straight win. The Mavericks won for the fourth time in five games to maintain seventh place in the Western Conference. It was Dallas fifth straight road win. Rudy Gay had 32 points and tied a career high with eight assists for the Kings, and DeMarcus Cousins added 28 points and 10 rebounds. The Kings played their sixth straight game without starting point guard Isaiah Thomas (right quadriceps contusion), who is averaging 20.7 points and 6.4 assists.

Heat best Knicks Thompson claims first major Jones wins Houston Open in playoff Associated PressRANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. Lexi Thompson left Michelle Wie behind Sunday off the tee and on the leaderboard in the Kraft Nabisco Championship. The 19-year-old Thompson beat Wie into Poppies Pond, too, capping the breakthrough major victory with the traditional victory leap into the water near the 18th green. Its just a dream come true, Thompson said. Thompson closed with a bogey-free 4-under 68 for a three-stroke victory. She birdied four of the first nine holes to open a five-stroke lead and parred the final nine. This is what Ive worked so hard for, Thompson said. This was one of my goals coming into the year, to win a major. Ive always seen myself winning a Kraft Nabisco. Its such a huge honor with all the history behind the tournament. Wie was second, birdieing the final hole for a 71. She used her driver only four times, choosing to hit fairwaymetal stingers on the other 10 driving holes leaving her as much as 60 yards behind Thompson. When both hit 3woods, Thompson also had the advantage. I stuck with my game plan and I think it was the right play, Wie said. Who knows? In hindsight you would do something here or do something there, make a putt there. Thats the way golf is. I just couldnt get anything going today. Thompson became the second-youngest major winner in LPGA Tour history at 19 years, 1 month, 27 days. Morgan Pressel set the record in her 2007 victory at Mission Hills at 18 years, 10 months, 9 days. Thompson finished at 14under 274 for her fourth LPGA Tour victory. She opened with a 73, shot a tournament-best 64 on Friday and had a 69 on Saturday to tie for the lead with Wie at 10 under. The 6-foot Florida player had only one bogey when she missed a 3-footer on the par-5 18th Saturday in her last 55 holes. You have to hit it in the fairway and, if you miss it, just miss it small, Thompson said. I think just staying into it mentally. When I had a bad hole, Id just fight right back. Or if I hit a bad shot, just know that I can get it up-and-down or get it on the green. Thompson won the 2011 Navistar LPGA in Alabama at 16 to become the youngest winner in tour history, a mark broken by Lydia Ko in the 2012 Canadian Womens Open. Last year, Thompson won the LPGA Malaysia and Lorena Ochoa Invitational. The 24-year-old Wie made her 12th start in the event. She was ninth in 2003 at age 13, fourth the following year and tied for third at 16 in 2006. She also was sixth in 2011. I thought I played OK, Wie said. I think it just got to a point where I just tried to force it. I think I needed to really come back with a lot of birdies and I think it got to a point where I just tried too hard. But Im just proud of myself for how the week went. Wie has two tour victories, winning the 2009 Lorena Ochoa Invitational and 2010 Canadian Womens Open. She has been in the top 16 in all six of her starts this season.Jones playoff chip-in wins Houston OpenHUMBLE, Texas Matt Jones earned his first trip to the Masters with a remarkable 42yard chip-in on the first playoff hole, outdueling Matt Kuchar on his way to winning the Houston Open on Sunday. The win is the first on the PGA Tour for the Australian, who made a 46-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole to reach the playoff. He ended it one hole later, chipping over the right front bunker on the 18th and watching it roll in. Kuchar, who bogeyed the final hole of regulation, then missed his bunker shot to give Jones the win earning him nearly $1.2 million and a trip to Augusta National. Jones, who began the day six shots back of Kuchar, shot a finalround 66 and ended the tournament 15 under overall. In September, Jones lipped out an 8-foot birdie putt on the last hole of the BMW Championship a putt that would have earned him a trip to next weeks Masters by sending him to the Tour Championship.

SPORTS CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, APRIL7, 2014 B5 just trying to play a solid round Saturday. I just didnt make the putts Sunday. I was very impressed with how challenging the golf course was set up,Counsil added. With rounds 78 and 74, Crystal Rivers Kelly Brady won his Championship B flight for the fourth time in five years, making it clear how well the course suits his short-game talents. In between rounds, he won a Duke Energy tournament at Southern Woods Golf Club late Saturday, before coming back Sunday with three birdies at 7 Rivers to finish tied for the days secondlowest round. He beat Neil Carter (77-78-155) by three strokes, and Austin Connors (76-82-158) and Tom Hendrick 79-79-158) by six apiece. Im 58-years-old, and when I got home Saturday, I asked myself, Why are you doing this to yourself? Brady joked. The course is short and tight, which fits my game. Im pretty good from 80-100 yards away. I dont overpower the course. Youve got to lay it up short of the hole and take your medicine. Truman Libby (75-76-151 in Blue A flight) and Donald Perrin (83-84-167 in Blue B flight) won their flights by six and five shots, respectively. Libby, of Sugarmill Woods, had initially carded a two-day score of 150, but self-reported a penalty, which cost him a stroke. He praised the fast layout. When we played the practice round on Friday, Libby said,I was so impressed with the improvements on the golf course, most importantly the greens. They were phenomenala little firm and so true. Just get the ball rolling on a line and its going inits that simple. I played in the tournament a number of years, and never have I seen a golf course this good. Pat Fitzpatrick (82-87-169 in Blue C) and Michael D. Lee (87-85-172 in Blue D) won their blue-tee flights, while Jack Wentzel (81-77-158 in White A) and James Anspach (83-85-168 in White B) each won from the white tees.

The Robertson family from Duck Dynasty had prominent roles at Sundays race, called the Duck Commander 500, but Uncle Si never got to give the command to start engines. NASCAR pulled the plug after a delay of about four hours. The race will be run Monday at 11 a.m., nine hours before the start of the NCAA national championship game in nearby Arlington. Tony Stewart, making a comeback this season after missing the final four months of last year with a broken leg, will start on the pole. Its the third time in seven Sprint Cup Series races this season that rain has hampered the event. The season-opening Daytona 500 was stopped for more than six hours, and the race at Bristol Motor Speedway had two delays totaling more than five hours. At least the fans who braved the rain got to enjoy the Robertson family antics. Uncle Si was wearing a sparkly jumpsuit meant to resemble a firesuit. Family patriarch Phil Robertson was supposed to wave the green flag as the honorary starter, his youngest son, Jep, was to ride in a pace car. Jase Robertson introduced the Top 10 starters, and his wife Missy sang the national anthem. Sadie, Willies 16-year-old daughter, delivered the invocation. Korie Robertson, Willies wife, said about 30-40 members of the family were at the race. And some extras, some bearded people may have slipped in there claiming they were kin, said Willie Robertson, who also sponsored Clint Bowyers car for the race. A steady rain saturated the track Sunday. NASCARs new track drying system requires two hours to dry the 1.5-mile speedway, but the unseasonably cool temperatures made the task more difficult. TMS big screen Big Hoss TV alerted fans to pending severe weather at times Sunday. The high-definition LED video board also showed episodes of Duck Dynasty. Bowyers car had markings for Willie Robertsons diner, Buck Commander and Korie Robertsons clothing boutique. I tried to talk them into letting me drive a Duck Commander car, but they wont do it, Si said. Willies response to that? We told him if he could figure out how to open the door well let him drive it, the CEO said. Earlier Sunday, an official from Guinness Book of World Records officially certified Big Hoss TV as the worlds largest high-definition LED video board. It is 218 feet wide and about 95 feet high, covering 20,614 square feet. Associated PressThe Chicago Blackhawks Marcus Kruger tries to get to the puck while the St Louis Blues David Backes holds him during the first period Sunday in Chicago. Blackhawks topple Blues 4-2 Associated PressCHICAGO Rookie Jeremy Morin scored and set up Patrick Sharps goahead goal in the second period, and the injury-depleted Chicago Blackhawks held on to defeat the St. Louis Blues 4-2 on Sunday afternoon for their third straight win. The Blackhawks ground out the victory despite skating without injured star forwards Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane for the third game. Forward Brandon Saad was a last-minute scratch. Marcus Kruger and Ben Smith also scored for Chicago, which closed to one point behind Colorado for second place in the Central Division and home ice in the first round of the playoffs. The Blackhawks have three games left. The Avalanche, who host Pittsburgh on Sunday night, have five games left.Penguins 3, Avalanche 2, SODENVER Jussi Jokinen skated across the front of the crease and roofed a shot over sprawling goalie Semyon Varlamov to give the Pittsburgh Penguins a 3-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche in a shootout. After Jokinens goal, MarcAndre Fleury made a pad save on Gabriel Landeskogs shot, snapping Colorados sixgame winning streak and denying Varlamov franchise records for most home and overall wins in a season. After falling behind 2-0 on Brandon Sutters first multiplegoal game this season, Colorado scored twice in the third period to tie it and send the game to overtime.Flyers 5, Sabres 2PHILADELPHIA Brayden Schenn scored two goals, and the Philadelphia Flyers broke a four-game losing streak with a 5-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres. Philadelphia maintained third place in the Metropolitan Division, two points ahead of Columbus, and won for the second time in eight games (2-4-2). Schenn, Vincent Lecavalier and Zac Rinaldo scored second-period goals to put Philadelphia ahead 4-0. Matt Read also scored and Mark Streit had three assists.Blue Jackets 4, Islanders 0COLUMBUS, Ohio Boone Jenner and Mark Letestu each had a goal and an assist, and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 31 shots for his second shutout of the week to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets past the New York Islanders 4-0. The Blue Jackets, desperate to hang on to a playoff spot in the East, matched a season high with three powerplay goals. Jack Johnson and Ryan Murray ended long droughts with goals, and Brandon Dubinsky had two assists.Panthers 3, Stars 2SUNRISE Sean Bergenheim scored with 4:31 left to break a third-period tie, and the Florida Panthers snapped a five-game losing streak in a 3-2 win over the Dallas Stars. Bergenheim put the Panthers ahead for good when he redirected Colby Robaks drive from the left circle into the net. Scottie Upshall and Brandon Pirri also scored for Florida, and Roberto Luongo made 35 saves. Huskies, Notre Dame both roll into womens NCAA national title Associated PressNASHVILLE, Tenn. The Connecticut Huskies are back in a very familiar position, undefeated and playing for a national championship. Theyll be going for an unprecedented ninth national championship after Breanna Stewart scored 18 points and the Huskies advanced to another title game with a 75-56 win against Stanford on Sunday night. It wasnt easy early, though the Huskies (39-0) did part and set up the highly anticipated championship showdown of undefeated teams. They will square off against Notre Dame, an 87-61 winner over Maryland, on Tuesday night in the title game. It will be the first womens national title game between unbeaten teams. It wouldnt be any fun if you didnt beat teams that were any good, UConn coach Geno Auriemma said of the matchup with Notre Dame. I think womens basketball needs rivalries like this, teams that aspire to be great and want to win championships. The Huskies also won their 45th straight game after overcoming another sluggish start. Stewart, the Associated Press player of the year, missed her first four shots and UConn was up just 28-24 at halftime. But Connecticut settled down and put the Cardinal away in the second half, outscoring them 47-32. Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis found her shooting stroke, scoring all of her 15 points in the second half. Bria Hartley added 13 points for UConn and Stefanie Dolson and Moriah Jefferson each finished with 10. Stanford (33-4) lost its third national semifinal since reaching the 2010 championship against UConn, which the Huskies also won. AllAmerican Chiney Ogwumike finished with 15 points and 10 rebounds. Amber Orrange scored 16 points, and Lili Thompson had 12. Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer had promised the Cardinal wouldnt go down easy, and her team never stopped competing. Thompson, a freshman, hit four of her first five shots for 10 quick points, helping the Cardinal get off to a good start early. The Cardinal led by as much as six a couple times, the last at 22-16 with 12:32 left when Mikaela Ruef banked in a jumper just before the shot clock expired with 5:39 to go. It was the third sluggish start for the Huskies, who missed shot after shot and had a couple tough shooting stretches in the first half. The first lasted more than 5 minutes and the second nearly 7 minutes.Notre Dame women beat Maryland 87-61NASHVILLE, Tenn. Kayla McBride wouldnt let Notre Dames pursuit of a perfect season end. The All-American senior guard had one of the most impressive games of her career in Sunday nights national semifinal, scoring 28 points to lead Notre Dame to an 87-61 win over Maryland. She seemingly did whatever she wanted, shedding defenders with behind-the-back dribbles and quick crossovers before scoring. She set the tone for Notre Dame and her Irish teammates followed her lead into Tuesday nights championship game. The Irish (37-0) will play UConn. Its the third time in four years that Notre Dame has been in the title game. The Irish are looking for their first title since winning it all in 2001. Notre Dame played without senior Natalie Achonwa, who suffered a torn ACL in the regional final victory over Baylor. The entire team wore shirts in warmups with Achonwas No. 11 and the 6-foot-3 forwards nickname Ace on the back. She helped her team warm up, passing the ball and offering words of encouragement. Muffet McGraw, who was The Associated Press coach of the year, was concerned coming into the game about her teams ability to rebound against the bigger Terrapins without Achonwa. It proved to be no problem for the Irish, who dominated the Terrapins (28-7) on the boards. The Irish outrebounded the Terps 50-21, including a 19-4 advantage on the offensive end. It was the widest rebounding margin ever in a Final Four game shattering the previous mark of 19 set by Louisiana Tech in 1989. Maryland broke the national semifinals record for fewest rebounds in a game of 25 set by Minnesota in 2004. Notre Dame also befuddled Maryland on defense, forcing them into turnovers and poor shots with ever-changing defenses. Terps star Alyssa Thomas was constantly double-teamed and rarely got a good look at the basket. She finished with 14 points. Thomas ended her career as the schools all-time leading scorer and rebounder. She had waited four years to make the Final Four and her only trip was a short one. Coach Brenda Frese took her out with 1:33 left and the game well out of reach. Associated PressConnecticut guard Bria Hartley celebrates her basket against Stanford during the second half of the semifinal game in the Final Four of the NCAA womens college basketball tournament Sunday in Nashville, Tenn.


B6MONDAY, APRIL7, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Holly Lisle, a fantasy and science fiction novelist, said, If you dont accept responsibility for your own actions, then you are forever chained to a position of defense. At the bridge table, when you are on defense, you must accept responsibility for your actions, and you must make those actions plays readable by partner. This week we will look at a variety of defensive deals, the types that you ought to have in your repertoire. In this deal, how should the defenders card to defeat four hearts after West leads the club ace? Jump raises in competition ought to be treated as pre-emptive. So, here, Norths threeheart response shows four-card heart support and a relatively weak hand, below game-invitational strength. (With four trumps and game-invitational values or more, North would respond two no-trump. This ought to be known as Truscott, after Alan who devised it. But in the United States it is often called Jordan, after Bobby who popularized it. Note that there is no need for a strong two-no-trump response, because North would redouble with 10 points or more and fewer than four hearts.) When you cannot win a trick and want to tell partner about touching honors, play the top of those touchers. At trick one, East must follow suit with his club queen. Then West continues with a low club, putting East on lead for the lethal spade shift. Why does East play a spade, not a diamond? Lead dummys weak suit; if West has a diamond winner, it isnt going anywhere. But a spade trick might and here would evaporate.

He started counseling and three years ago legally changed his first name and began living as a woman. This devastated my parents and two of my siblings, and they have disowned him. I have not seen my brother since then. Our youngest sibling, Paul, embraced the change and kept in touch with him. Paul is getting married soon and wants a family wedding, complete with his sister Jane. My parents are devastated all over again. They refuse to attend the wedding if Jane is there. Jane has no desire to be in the lives of our family at all, except for our youngest sibling. Any suggestions on how to deal with this? Feeling Overwhelmed in Smalltown, USA Dear Overwhelmed: Paul gets to invite whomever he chooses, and your parents and siblings get to decide whether or not to attend. We hope everyone will show up, not only to be supportive of Paul on his big day, but also to reconnect, even from a distance, with Jane. It always makes us sad when relatives reject a child because of his or her sexual orientation. We urge you (and, hopefully, your parents and other siblings) to check out PFLAG ( for information on transgendered individuals. Jane undoubtedly would be grateful for your support. Dear Annie: My wife and I are both in our 80s, and we are physically slowing down. It has reached the point that we need some help cleaning our house. But the horror stories from our friends are all the same. While the cleaning effort is good and the workers are dependable, there is one caveat: Persons employed by many local advertised cleaning services are paid just above the minimum wage. This creates a real temptation to steal. Our friends report that after every cleaning, personal items are missing. When they changed services, the same thing happened. If we have to put away all of our personal items that lay around the house, we may as well just clean it ourselves. How do we find someone we can trust? Need Help in Jacksonville, Fla. Dear Need Help: The best way to find good cleaning help is to ask for a referral from a friend, relative, neighbor or through your house of worship. If you live in an apartment or condo, ask the building manager or doorman whether there is a service that works in the building. We also suggest you find out whether the cleaning service company is insured and the employees bonded. There are no guarantees, unfortunately, but its a good place to start. Dear Annie: This is for Dont Want To Be Old-Fashioned, who asked about writing an RSVP for a mass-mailing event. As a professional event planner, I am deeply appreciative when I receive an RSVP, whether it is an acceptance or regrets. It helps me to prepare enough materials and create the appropriate atmosphere. Who wants to sit in a large room with several empty seats when a small room would have been nicer? And if someone writes a personal note saying they cannot attend due to major surgery, I can inform the event hosts so they can acknowledge it. I do understand in the age of mass electronic communications that the response rate and understanding of RSVP has changed, but simple common courtesy should never be disregarded in professional or personal interactions. Id like to thank Dont Want To Be Old-Fashioned. I hope to see her at the next event I am planning.
