MICHAEL D. BATESStaff writerWhen Hurricane Eta sloshed its way through the Gulf of Mexico this month and finally hit north of Citrus County as a weaker tropical system, it tied the record for the most active Atlantic season for hurricanes and storms. Eta was this year’s 28th named storm, tying the 2005 record. It landed in Cedar Key and the dire scenario of flooding and heavy winds and rains never materialized. But there were two more to come: Subtropical storm Theta (No. 29), which stayed in open ocean waters, officially broke the season record. Then, No. 30 turned out to be the most vicious as Hurricane Iota made landfall on Nicaragua’s Caribbean coast Nov. 16 as a powerful Category 4 storm. Thankfully, it had weakened from a Category 5. Hurricane season ends today, Nov. 30, but that’s no guarantee that tropical storms won’t form beyond that date. Given all the activity, Citrus County and Florida fared rather well this year. The same can’t be said for Louisiana, which was involved in seven storms. “We did real well,” said Chris Evan, the sheriff’s emergency management director. “There’s no other way to say it. We were just so very fortunate.” Eta had caused significant flooding and rain to the south of Citrus, especially in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties. But it weakened by the time it arrived in Citrus County. “It could have been a whole lot worse,” Evan said. The 2020 season produced 30 named storms (top winds of 39 mph or greater), of which 13 became hurricanes (top winds of 74 mph or greater), including six major hurricanes (top winds of 111 mph or greater). There were so many storms that the National Hurricane Center (NHC) — for only the second time ever — had to resort to the letters of the Greek alphabet to finish things off. “It’s crazy,” said University of Miami hurricane researcher Brian McNoldy. “This is just off the charts. We’ve made a joke of breaking records.” NOVEMBER 30, 2020www.chronicleonline.com ONLINE POLL:What do you think?As holiday season shopping shifts into full gear, how do you plan to purchase gifts in light of the local surge in positive COVID-19 cases?

National Weather Service (NWS) forecasters predict the cold wave from the Midwest to arrive as early as overnight Sunday, Nov. 29, 2020, or as late as early Monday morning. “It’s going to be a pattern change,” said Dan Sobien, a NWS meteorologist out of the agency’s Tampa Bay office. “The folks are going to notice a huge difference.” Some thunderstorms are also anticipated to come with the front. “It looks like it will have a little bit of push to it,” Sobien said. Afterward, Sobien said, Tuesday morning temperatures could get to the low 40s, rising to the high 50s by the afternoon. Tuesday will also be gusty as offshore winds move Monday night onto land. “It’s going to be a raw day,” Sobien said. Sobien recommended gardeners cover vulnerable plants Tuesday night since Wednesday morning will threaten frost with low winds and temperatures in the upper or mid-30s. Frost is possible Tuesday morning, Sobien said, but it depends on how much wind is keeping the cold air from sinking to the ground. Wednesday’s high temperatures are expected to increase to the mid-40s. Sobien said Thursday and Friday’s low temperatures will waver in the midand upper 40s before they rise to the upper 60s with light winds. Similar conditions will continue into the weekend. “It’s going to be a slow one to get out of,” Sobien said. Sobien said people should take care when using space heaters to keep warm because some devices emit carbon monoxide or could ignite fires if placed in flammable or precarious areas.rrfntbbPrepare for ‘huge difference’rrffnr See SEASON/ Page A6SO LONG, SEASON MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle fileWith the Duke Energy complex towers in the background, Crystal River resident Johnathan Iglesias surveys the water near the Fort Island Gulf Beach boat ramp west of Crystal River as Tropical Storm Eta blows through.GOODBYE, GOOD RIDDANCE AND JIM TURNERNews Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE — As the most-active hurricane season on record approaches an end, Florida overall has been relatively lucky. The 2020 Atlantic season, which on the calendar ends today, Nov. 30, 2020, has put up 30 named storms — requiring the use of the auxiliary Greek alphabet for the second time ever. Also, it has included 13 hurricanes, of which six were categorized as “major” storms, with winds over 111 mph. That included 160 mph winds before Hurricane Iota made landfall Nov. 16 in Nicaragua. However, in a season that overlapped the coronavirus pandemic, most storms spun away from Florida. “I’d say it’s luck,” National Weather Service meteorologist Mark Wool said. “There really isn't any one particular thing that we can hang our hat on and say, ‘Well, this is what protected Florida this year.’ It just happened to be the positioning of the steering currents, as various systems developed, continuously steered them into the Gulf of Mexico as opposed to approaching from the east.” But just because the season officially ends Monday, don’t expect the tropics to be quiet. “I would not be at all surprised if we have another one or maybe even two named systems that develop between now and when we are finally said and done,” Wool, who works in Tallahassee, said. “Like I said, we have already established all sorts of records for this season, including the most named storms on record.”Meteorologist: Florida can thank its ‘luck’rSee ‘LUCK’/ Page A6 Extra puzzles. . . . . .B4

JOHN HAUGHEYThe Center SquareFlorida’s proposed Canadian Prescription Drug Importation Program plan was submitted for final federal review and, as expected, was challenged immediately in court. The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), the Partnership for Safe Medicines and the Council for Affordable Health Coverage filed a lawsuit Monday challenging Florida’s drug import plan proposed under rules finalized by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar in July. The lawsuit argues there is not enough evidence to support assurances drug importation programs are safe or will produce significant cost savings for consumers. The plaintiffs also contend Azar’s decision to allow states to make those determinations is flawed. “It is particularly disturbing that the administration is punting the responsibility for demonstrating safety and cost savings to state governments despite the clear requirement under federal law that the secretary of HHS must certify that imported drugs both pose no additional risk to public safety and will lead to significant savings for the American consumer,” PhRMA Executive Vice President and General Counsel James Stansel said in a statement. After failing to dissuade lawmakers in a growing number of states from approving prospective pharmaceutical import programs, the pharmaceutical industry was expected to step up legal and political pressure at the federal regulatory and congressional levels once the momentum shifted to Washington, where the industry invests the lion’s share of its lobbying resources. According to the National Institute on Money in Politics, the pharmaceutical industry contributed nearly $19 million to state elections in 2018 — one-third of the $56 million it spent on congressional campaigns. Florida lawmakers in 2019 adopted House Bill 19, which created three state-backed programs to import cheaper prescription drugs. Establishing such a program was one of Gov. Ron DeSantis’ first announced priorities upon assuming office in January 2019. HB 19’s three prescription drug importation programs are: The Canadian Prescription Drug Importation Program managed by the Agency for Health Care Administration (ACHA); The International Prescription Drug Importation Program managed by the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR); A pilot program run by the Florida Department of Health and the DBPR. In 2020, lawmakers adopted House Bill 23, which creates an intergovernmental structure administered by the AHCA to purchase pharmaceuticals from Health Canada and earmarked $20.4 million in this year’s budget to hire a contractor to get the program off the ground. The HHS and U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) are expected to issue rules for statebacked imports from countries other than Canada on Nov. 30. That guidance will affect Florida’s prospective International Prescription Drug Importation Program. Under the state’s final Section 804 Importation Proposal (SIP) plan, Floridians who need “maintenance medications” to help with “chronic health conditions,” such as asthma, COPD, diabetes and HIV/AIDS, will be among the first to benefit from the Canadian import program. “For far too long Floridians have been paying exorbitant prices for prescription drugs,” DeSantis said Monday in a statement.

UK govt.: ‘The Crown’ should be clearLONDON — Britain’s culture minister thinks the Netflix TV series “The Crown” should come with a disclaimer: It’s a work of fiction. Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden weighed in amid criticism of the historical liberties taken by the drama about the British royal family. “It’s a beautifully produced work of fiction. So as with other TV productions, Netflix should be very clear at the beginning it is just that,” Dowden told the Mail on Sunday newspaper. “Without this, I fear a generation of viewers who did not live through these events may mistake fiction for fact.” Dowden is expected to write to Netflix this week to express his view. Netflix did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press. Questions of historical fidelity were not a major issue during earlier seasons of the show, which debuted in 2016 and traces the long reign of Queen Elizabeth II, which began in 1952. But the current fourth season is set in the 1980s, a divisive decade that many Britons remember vividly. Characters include Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, whose 11year tenure transformed and divided Britain, and the late Princess Diana, whose death in a car crash in 1997 traumatized the nation. Former royal press secretary Dickie Arbiter has called the series a “hatchet job” on Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, and his first wife Diana. The troubled relationship of the couple, played by Josh O’Connor and Emma Corrin, is a major storyline in the series. Diana’s brother, Charles Spencer, has also said the show should carry a notice that “this isn’t true but it is based around some real events.” “I worry people do think that this is gospel and that’s unfair,” he told broadcaster ITV. Some Conservatives have criticized the program’s depiction of Thatcher, played by Gillian Anderson. Britain’s first female prime minister, who died in 2013, is portrayed as clashing with Olivia Colman’s Elizabeth to an extent that some say is exaggerated. — From wire reports Associated PressA man wearing a face mask walks past a billboard advertising ‘The Crown’ television series about Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II and the royal family, on Nov. 20, 2020, during England’s second coronavirus lockdown, in London. Britain’s Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden in a newspaper interview published Sunday, Nov. 29, 2020, said he thinks “The Crown” should come with a disclaimer as it’s a work of fiction with historical liberties taken in the Netflix drama about the British royal family.A4 MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2020 CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLETo start your subscription:Call now for home delivery by our carriers: Citrus County: 352-563-5655 13 weeks: $65.72* — 26 weeks: $117.09* — 1 year: $193.46*Subscription price does not include applicable state and local sales tax.

Florida has been touched by four of the named storms, and only what had been Hurricane Eta made direct landfall in the state. In fact, Eta technically twice made landfall, south of Islamorada in Monroe County on Nov. 9 and near Cedar Key in Levy County on Nov. 12. In each in stance, Eta hit the state with tropical-storm-force winds. The most memorable of this year’s storms for Flor ida was Hurricane Sally, which crossed the south ern end of the peninsula as a depression before making landfall Sept. 15 near Gulf Shores, Ala. Sally brought massive storm surge and flooding to the western Panhandle, including in Pensacola. Among other things, the storm led to damage on the Pensacola Bay Bridge after a barge broke loose because of heavy surf. Sally also was responsi ble for three deaths in Florida, while crop, live stock and aquaculture losses have been esti mated between $55 mil lion and $100 million by University of Florida economists. Also this season, a dis turbance crossed the Panhandle in July that later grew into Tropical Storm Fay off the coast of Geor gia. And August opened with Isaias running north off Florida’s East Coast as a strong tropical storm. None of this year’s storms brought the tension Hurricane Dorian created along the East Coast in 2019, the carnage Hurri cane Michael inflicted on the Panhandle in 2018 or the sweeping damage Hur ricane Irma left across much of the state in 2017. Meanwhile, Louisiana had five landfalls this year. The season was so ac tive that storm watches and warnings were issued by the National Hurricane Center at some point for all but one county or par ish along the Gulf and At lantic coasts, from the Mexico border to Maine. That county was Wakulla, part of the Big Bend re gion south of Tallahassee. Wool called that simply an “astounding coincidence.” The Big Bend also was the least storm-impacted region along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, according to the National Weather Service. The six-month hurricane season officially started June 1, but there had already been two named storms — both off the Carolinas — before that date. Florida disaster-man agement workers had been at an elevated level of preparedness for three months before the hurri cane season because of the coronavirus pandemic. They also had to modify hurricane plans on issues such as evacuations, shel ters and arrangements for relief crews because of the pandemic. Wool said some of those changes are expected to carry over whenever the pandemic is eventually considered under control. “We were really trying to get people to think criti cally about, ‘Do you really need to evacuate?’” Wool said. “And if you do, try to seek out family or friends versus a public shelter, be cause those shelters were not going to be able to hold as many people due to so cial distancing concerns.” A6 MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2020 CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE Easy Livin’ Furniture Outdoor Patio and more000ZCQ7 EasyLivinFurniture.comHours: LOCALLY OWNED IN CITRUS COUNTY SINCE 1986 Made in America5 pc.

La Nina, which is a cooling of parts of the equatorial Pacific that changes weather worldwide, is a factor in making some but not all of the Atlantic more active, he said. McNoldy does not see a hu man-caused climate change connection at work in the number of storms. Not only is this the most storms in a season but it is also the second-highest number of hurricanes on record, ac cording to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Gerry Bell, with the NOAA, attributed the record-setting year to warmerthan-average Atlantic sea surface temperatures and a stronger west African monsoon, “along with much weaker ver tical wind shear and wind patterns coming off of Africa that were more fa vorable for storm development.” Even though he calendar says hurricane season is over, don’t get too complacent. “I would love to say we’re done,” Evan said. “But that doesn’t mean some thing couldn’t crop up. It’s been such a crazy year.” Evan said there is one aspect that concerns him and it was noticeable during Eta. “A lot of people don’t pay attention to the weather and they don’t pay atten tion to the news,” he said. “Many people weren’t even aware they were threat ened by (Eta) and that puts their lives in danger.” Citrus Countians, he said, need to have a storm plan in place because Florida can be threatened by bad storms year-round. “What’s important to remember is, even though hurricane season is wind ing down, we live in an all-hazard state,” he said. “Be vigilant all year long.” The Associated Press contributed to this story.MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle fileCity of Crystal River Public Works Department worker Chris Creamer uses a chainsaw in the early morning hours Thursday, Nov. 12, 2020, to cut trees from the roadway at the intersection of Southeast 10th Street and Southeast First Court.

O PINIONPage A8 MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2020 r ffntbImmanuel Kant, German philosopher, 1724-1804 HELTER SHELTER Commissioners need unified vision for future of animal shelter Bah, humbug! That’s the cry of several county commissioners, balking at the idea of re locating the Citrus County Animal Shelter to Lecanto as the existing structures in In verness continue to wear down. Commissioner Jeff Kinnard brought a conceptual plan forward to the board Nov. 17, asking to set 16 acres of land aside near the county jail for Lifestream Be havioral Center to build a mental health and addiction treatment campus, as well as have a new animal shelter built at the site. His fellow commissioners voted unanimously to back a 10-acre Lifestream campus, but re sisted the notion of commit ting land for a new shelter, even after Rep. Ralph Mas sullo offered $500,000 of his own money toward construction of a new build. While the Lifestream ap proval is definitely a huge step forward for Citrus County, we can’t help but wonder why the shelter re mains stagnant despite wide community support. And yes, we’d call a half a million dollars solid support for a new shelter. That’s a rather generous offer and it would be a shame to miss out on the opportunity to utilize that money for a longtime county need. Commissioners since 2014 have considered building a new shelter near the Citrus County Detention Facility, but have yet to commit to uti lizing the county-owned land. What’s the holdup? Commissioner Scott Car nahan on Nov. 17 said Citrus taxpayers “don’t have the stomach” to spend millions of dollars on a new animal shelter. Yet, local Citrus ani mal advocacy groups have no problem raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for shel ter improvements. Just this year, the Citrus County Foundation for Ani mal Protection (CCFAP) non profit raised $76,000 for a new X-ray machine for the shelter in just a handful of months. There are many, many animal supporters in the county opening their hearts and wallets for the care and protection of the county’s most vulnerable animals. Many average taxpayers would support providing an honorable quality of life for stray animals AND extend the same adequate condi tions for working shelter employ ees and volunteers. Public vote from the Chronicle’s recent on line poll also negates Carnahan’s sentiment. Most voters in the poll support the use of Massullo’s donation to help fund the shelter and only about 20 percent of voters in the poll do not support a new shelter. The current shelter structures are 50 and 29-yearsold, had have recently reported roof deterioration, kennel damage, rusty win dows and damaged concrete. On Aug. 11, commissioners approved only the necessary repairs to make the build ings safe to work in and in habit, but in the long run, that’s a temporary fix to a problem that won’t just magically go away. The buildings are aging. Stray animals are a com munity constant, and serving 4,000-5,000 animals annually is no small task. The need for a shelter building will al ways be here, and moving it to a more centralized loca tion makes sense. The move would free up space at the Inverness airport to construct a light industrial complex in the area, as is the idea behind the Inverness Airport Business Park concept. The county commission, with new bold leadership, needs to move forward on an animal shelter plan. Kicking the project down the road only ends up costing more in the long run. And in the meantime, stay animals and dedicated employees pay the price by living and working in substandard conditions. THE ISSUE:Commissioners back away from committing to Lecanto animal shelter location.OUR OPINION:It’s time to come up with a solid shelter plan. LETTERSf Infuriated by people with new carsI’m really infuriated by these people that’s got new vehicles going to the food banks and getting free food and stuff. That’s ridiculous. If you’ve got a new vehicle, sell it to feed your family. You don’t need to rub it in our face. I’ve got a 20-year-old Jeep and it gets me from Point A to Point B. You don’t need to be bringing new trucks and new cars into a food bank, showing off like you’re a big-shot. If you can afford that new truck or new car, you can afford to feed your family. You don’t need to be bringing them things in there. Sell it. If you can’t afford it, sell that darned thing and get an older vehicle and, you know, do it like that. I’m tired of going down there and seeing all these new vehicles in there. It’s just ridiculous.Thanks for paying for breakfastI’d like to say thank you to the person or per sons who have paid my way for breakfast on Nov. 16 at about 10 o’clock at Breakfast Station No. 7 in Beverly Hills. That puts my faith in people and in good people. Thank you again and I appreciate it. I hope things go well for you and thank you again for paying for my breakfast at Beverly Hills Breakfast Station No. 7 on Nov. 16. Thank you very much.You don’t have right of wayToday is Thursday (Nov. 19, 2020) and I am calling to leave a message for the lady that was about to walk out in front of me in the Walmart parking lot today and the other lady who was screeching at me. They both were saying, “Pedestrian has the right of way! Pedestrian has the right of way!” The pedestrian does not have the right of way to blindly, without looking, start walking out in front of a moving vehicle. You’re not in Canada. So just don’t do it because, you know, if you wind up getting hit and in the hospital, all that “pedestrian has the right of way” is not going to bring you any comfort when you’re all broken up, OK? So be careful and don’t walk out in front of moving vehicles. Have a good day.There’s an airboat policyThere is a strict policy regarding the airboats after 11 p.m. The Citrus County Sheriff’s Office should be writing tickets to any boats after 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. There is a curfew. The Citrus County Airboat Alliance adheres to that curfew. The problem is when on the weekend, we get a lot of people from the south of the state and Tampa who come up to this area and they run their boats late at night and the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office should give those boats tickets. Other than that, the club does adhere to the cur few between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. And if the people do not like airboats, they should not move to an airboat neighborhood. Lakefront Park is an airboat neighborhood. There are tons of airboats and hunting is also legal in that area and there are gunshots. That is a hunting and airboat neighborhood.Pick up after your dogDear New Neighbor: Welcome to the neighbor hood. Your dogs are large and so is their poop. Please pick it up. If you don’t, we will bring it to you. Thank you.Spend more on beautificationLadies and gentlemen of Citrus County and the town of Inverness: Over the last three or four years, this area has had a housing boom. If you haven’t noticed — being that I’m in development — houses are popping up everywhere. The amount of tax revenue on property tax is in creasing dramatically. Citrus County should be having a large surplus because of this type of development over the last three or four years, yet it seems to me that Citrus County and the town of Inverness spend very little money on beautifying, grooming, maintaining and cleaning our public streets and waterways. This is a tragedy. We need to get on our commissioners and council people and let them know that we need to have Citrus County all groomed and beautiful. They have plenty of money to do so. Give them a call or write to them, that they spend our money wisely. We should have a beautiful county.Thanks for kindnessWe want to thank the lovely, young lady who insisted on paying for our groceries Saturday, Nov. 21, at Publix. In spite of my protests, your kindness brought tears to my eyes and left me speechless. May your kindness be returned to you a thousand times or more. Be assured that I will pass it on. Thank you and God bless.You’re being rude and unkindI’m calling about the person who wrote in, “I support the sign,” “Eternity in hell,” in (Sound Off) Nov. 22, 2020, Sunday. I disagree with you and I always will. Take the sign down. It doesn’t help people. It promotes garbage. That’s all it is. I don’t believe in your message. Have you stepped back and looked at how awful the sign looks? It’s awfulI’m supporting the person that wrote in there that you’re promoting religious beliefs against the rest of all of Citrus County. It’s very rude and unkind for you to bestow something upon the majority of us who don’t want to see it every day. Put it in your own back yard or take it downBy the way, com missioners, why don’t you look into this already? It’s disgusting. If there isn’t a law, make one and get them to take it down. That’s awful looking.Turn lights on in the rainI’m reading in the Chronicle Sound Off Sunday, Nov. 22, where somebody called in saying, “Use headlights all the time.” I would like to know from Sheriff Prender gast how many tickets were issued for people driving in a rainstorm without their headlights on. That is the Florida law and they should be giving tickets to those people. It is so dangerous that when you’re driving in the rain, if somebody doesn’t have their headlights on. This would be a very interesting question for the sheriff to answer. How many times have you seen a deputy pull somebody over in the rain and write a citation? If it’s raining, you can do anything you want, it seems like, because they’re not going to stop you. I think it’s a very valid point that we have to give tickets to these people that are driving without their headlights on during a storm. If their wipers are going, their lights should be on.Tearing up our neighborhoodI’m calling about the article in Monday’s paper about the Cardinal Street interchange (Nov. 23’s front-page story, “Vision still unclear for parkway zoning,” “County growth official imagines town centers in Cardinal Street area”). We wanted 20acre parcels to keep from having our neighbor hood torn apart by little businesses here and there. I was very aware of the road going in and did my due diligence and did not buy a piece of property right on Cardinal Lane, knowing that it might be turned into commercial. What they pro posed was three parcels in – three 3-acre parcels in – would all be turned to multi-use. That means not only the parcel attached to Cardinal Lane would be multi-use, my property and the property next to me and the three across the street would all be. So if my neighbor the third parcel in de cided to put a business, then I’d be stuck with a business next to me. That just didn’t work for most of us that were aware of the road going in and purposefully did not buy property on Cardinal Lane unless we were planning to have it changed to commercial. So the 20 acres makes it where there’s plenty of room to have an actual business area instead of tearing up our neighborhood.

What all are you thinking now? Are you happy now? You voted for a man who is trying to overthrow the election actually trying to sabotage it! And the whole election pro cess! And our constitution! What Mitt Romny said on CNN is its undemocratic. Better words for it! You voted for a man who cares nothing about the pandemic and has no problem saying so! Mitt Romney said he wants him to stop all this nonsense already as well! You voted for a man who repeatedly got all recounts to be true and correct and all were not in his favor! Over many times already! They have been audited as well and some continue to be as we speak! But all results have been in Biden’s favor. Even if he gets some votes going to him and he has, won’t change the election or overthrow it to Trump’s favor. Not going to happen. All fraudulent claims have been unfounded, and said to be one of the safer elections of the United States history. You voted for a man who has an attorney, Mayor Giuliani, who stood on national TV with hair dye running down both sides of his faces calling everyone who dared to say different a liar. Along with his other cronnies, who even brought in Venezuela in the mix for a last ditch effort! President Trump needs all Senators to get in to tell him to stop all this nonsense already, and to concede the election! Also Mitch McConnell, he needs to call the election and get newly elected president the clearance for new administration to be able to get inside information from our intelligence people so he can keep us safe. I hope your all happy now! Wanting to bomb Iraq, take military out of Afghanistan, what else can Trump do to hurt us! I ask again! Are you happy now? What are you thinking now?

Mysterious silver monolith disappears from desertSALT LAKE CITY — A mysterious sil-ver monolith that was placed in the Utah desert has disappeared less than 10 days after it was spotted by wildlife bi-ologists performing a helicopter survey of bighorn sheep, federal officials and wit-nesses said. “We have received credible reports that the illegally installed structure, re-ferred to as the ‘mono-lith’ has been removed from Bureau of Land Management public lands by an un-known party,” on Nov. 27, BLM spokes-person Kimberly Finch said in a statement. The agency did not remove the structure, she said. The Utah Department of Public Safety said biologists spotted the monolith on Nov. 18, a report that garnered interna-tional attention. It was about 11 feet tall with sides that appeared to be made of stainless steel. While Utah officials did not say specifi-cally where the monolith was located, people soon found it on satellite images dating back to 2016 and determined its GPS coordinates, prompting people to hike into the area. Reporters with The Salt Lake Tribune hiked to the spot on Saturday and con-firmed that it was gone. Spencer Owen of Salt Lake City said he saw the monolith Friday afternoon and camped in the region overnight, but as he hiked to the area again on Satur-day people passing him on the trail warned him it was gone, the Tribune re-ported. When he arrived at the spot, all that was left was a triangular piece of metal covering a triangular-shaped hole in the rocks. “I was really bummed,” said Owen.Mother of slain Florida teen shot during serviceCOCOA — An unknown gunman fired into a crowd gathered at a Saturday after-noon burial service of a teenager who was fatally shot by a Florida sheriff’s deputy earlier this month, officials said. The deceased teen’s mother was wounded by the bullet, Florida Today reported. The shooting happened as guests gath-ered at River-view Memorial Gardens to pay their respects to 18-year-old Sincere Pierce. Pierce and 16-year-old Angelo Crooms were killed Nov. 13 by a Brevard County Sheriff’s deputy. The shot rang out as the pastor had just finished his prayers and the teen’s friends and loved ones were placing flowers on the casket, the newspaper reported. The loud popping sound was followed by stunned silence before Quasheda Pierce screamed that she’d been hit. The newspaper reported that mourners were at first slow to react before realizing what had occurred. They began rushing to nearby cars and leaving the funeral quickly. Friends and family members helped Quasheda Pierce into a minivan before ambulances arrived. Deputies carrying ri-fles arrived a short time later in response to multiple 911 calls. The mother was taken to a hospital, but the severity of her injury was not immedi-ately known. Detectives and crime scene investigators remained at the cemetery throughout the afternoon Saturday, the newspaper reported. The teens were killed when Deputy Jafet Santiago-Miranda fired multiple shots into their car when the teens didn’t pull over. Sheriff Wayne Ivey had said the dep-uties thought the vehicle might have been stolen, but the teens’ families and lawyer, Natalie Jackson, said they had permission to use the car and called it a case of mis-taken identity. Associated PressIn this picture released by the Iranian Defense Ministry and taken on Saturday, Nov. 28, 2020, caretakers from the Imam Reza holy shrine, carry the flag-draped coffin of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, an Iranian scientist linked to the country’s disbanded military nuclear program, who was killed on Friday, during a funeral ceremony in the northeastern city of Mashhad, Iran. Iran newspaper: Strike Haifa if Israel killed scientistTEHRAN, Iran — An opinion piece published Sunday by a hard-line Iranian newspaper urged Iran to attack the Israeli port city of Haifa if Israel carried out the killing of the scientist who founded the Islamic Republic’s military nuclear program in the early 2000s. Though the hardline Kayhan news-paper has long argued for aggressive retaliation for operations targeting Iran, Sunday’s opinion piece went further, suggesting any assault be carried out in a way that destroys facilities and “also causes heavy human casualties.” Israel, suspected of killing Iranian nuclear scientists over the past decade, has not commented on the brazen slaying of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh. A military-style ambush Friday on the outskirts of Tehran reportedly saw a truck bomb explode and gunmen open fire on the scientist, kill-ing him and a bodyguard. U.S. intelligence agencies and U.N. nuclear inspectors have said the organized military nuclear program that Fakhrizadeh oversaw disbanded in 2003. Israel insists Iran still maintains the ambition of developing nuclear weapons. Kayhan published the piece written by Iranian analyst Sadollah Zarei, who argued Iran’s previous responses to suspected Israeli airstrikes that killed Revolutionary Guard forces in Syria did not go far enough to deter Israel. He said an assault on Haifa also needed to be greater than Iran’s ballistic missile attack against American troops in Iraq following the U.S. drone strike in Baghdad that killed a top Iranian general in January. Suspected extremists kill at least 40 farmers in NigeriaMAIDGURI, Nigeria — Suspected members of the Is-lamic militant group Boko Haram killed at least 40 rice farmers and fishermen in Nigeria as they were harvesting crops in the country’s northern state of Borno, officials said. One said the death toll could rise to about 60 people. The attack Saturday in a rice field in Garin Kwashebe came on the same day that residents were casting votes for the first time in 13 years to elect local councils, although many didn’t go to cast their ballots. The farmers were reportedly rounded up and summar-ily killed by armed insurgents in retaliation for refusing to pay extortion to one militant. Malam Zabarmari, a leader of a rice farmers associa-tion in Borno state, confirmed the massacre to The Asso-ciated Press, saying at least 40 and up to 60 people could have been killed. Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari expressed grief over the killings. “I condemn the killing of our hardworking farmers by terrorists in Borno State. The entire country is hurt by these senseless killings. My thoughts are with their fami-lies in this time of grief,” he said.UK says Brexit trade talks with EU are in their ‘last week’LONDON — Britain’s foreign minister said Sunday there is only about a week left for the U.K. and the Euro-pean Union to strike a post-Brexit trade deal, with fishing rights the major obstacle to an agreement. As talks continued between the two sides in London, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said “I think we are into the last week or so of substantive negotiations.” The U.K. left the EU early this year, but remained part of the 27-nation bloc’s economic embrace during an 11month transition as the two sides tried to negotiate a new free-trade deal to take effect Jan. 1. Talks have already slipped past the mid-November date long set as a deadline for agreement to be reached if it is to be approved by law-makers in Britain and the EU before year’s end. Despite the stalemate, Raab told Sky News that “there’s a deal to be done.” He said the two sides had made progress on “level playing field” issues — the standards the U.K. must meet to export into the EU. The biggest hurdle appears to be fish, a small part of the economy with an outsized symbolic importance for Europe’s maritime nations. EU countries want their boats to be able to keep fishing in British waters, while the U.K. insists it must control access and quotas. “On fisheries, there is a point of principle: As we leave the transition, we are an independent coastal state and we’ve got to be able to control our waters,” Raab said. EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier, who met through the weekend with U.K. counterpart David Frost, has said there are still “significant divergences.” — From wire reports BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A10 MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2020 CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Associated PressThis Nov. 18, 2020, photo provided by the Utah Department of Public Safety shows a Utah state worker inspecting a metal monolith that was found installed in the ground in a remote area of red rock in Utah.

BRIEFS — From wire reports IRAN NIGERIA BRITAIN UTAH FLORIDA TAMARA LUSHAssociated PressThe nation’s top infectious disease expert said Sunday that the U.S. may see “surge upon a surge” of the coro navirus in the weeks after Thanks giving, and he does not expect current recommendations around social distancing to be relaxed be fore Christmas. Meanwhile, in a major reversal, New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio said the nation’s largest school sys tem will reopen to in-person learn ing and increase the number of days a week many children attend class. The announcement came just 11 days after the Democratic mayor said schools would shut down be cause of rising COVID-19 cases. “We feel confident that we can keep schools safe,” he said. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told ABC’s “This Week” that the level of infection in the U.S. would not “all of a sudden turn around.” “So clearly in the next few weeks, we’re going to have the same sort of thing. And perhaps even two or three weeks down the line ... we may see a surge upon a surge,” he said. Fauci addressed the school issue, saying that spread “among children and from children is not really very big at all, not like one would have suspected. So let’s try to get the kids back, but let’s try to mitigate the things that maintain and just push the kind of community spread that we’re trying to avoid,” he said. Fauci also appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” where he made similar remarks, adding that it’s “not too late” for people traveling back home after Thanksgiving to help stop the spread of the virus by wearing masks, staying distant from others and avoiding large groups of people. “So we know we can do something about it, particularly now as we get into the colder season and as we ap proach the Christmas holidays,” he said. The number of new COVID-19 cases reported in the United States topped 200,000 for the first time Friday. The highest previous daily count was 196,000 on Nov. 20, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. Since January, when the first infections were reported in the U.S., the nation’s total number of cases has surpassed 13 million. More than 265,000 people have died. Fauci said the arrival of vaccines offers a “light at the end of the tunnel.” This week, the Advisory Commit tee on Immunization Practices will meet with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to discuss a rollout of the vaccine, he said. He added that President-elect Joe Biden should focus on distributing vaccines in an “efficient and equitable way.” Fauci also said he planned to push the new administration for a rigorous testing program. “We’ve got to go beyond the symp tomatic people and get a better un derstanding of the asymptomatic transmission,” he said. Health care workers will likely be among the first to get the vaccine, with the first vaccinations happen ing before the end of December, fol lowed by many more in January, February and March, he said.Dire warning for US Associated PressTravelers walk through Terminal 3 as a COVID-19 travel order sign is displayed at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, Sunday, Nov. 29, 2020.

Kendall Hinton Richmond stuns No. 10 Kentucky Associated PressLEXINGTON, Ky. — Rich mond could hardly have played worse in the first half Sunday, yet it trailed No. 10 Kentucky by only a few points. The Spiders pulled confi dence from the small deficit and turned that into better execu tion after halftime, leading to the biggest win away from home in program history. Blake Francis and Nathan Cayo powered Richmond to its first road victory over an Associ ated Press top 10 team, rallying in the second half to beat the Wildcats 76-64. “You just get to play a team like Kentucky so rarely,” Rich mond coach Chris Mooney said. “So for us to have the opportu nity to play them with a great team is great, and we seized that opportunity. “It’s a tremendous win. Ken tucky loses very rarely, they lose out of conference very rarely, so this is a great win.” The Spiders (2-0) had been 0-25 against top 10 teams and trailed 36-30 just after halftime. Francis and Cayo each finished with 18 points, many coming during a series of small scoring runs that pushed Richmond ahead. “We were only down four at halftime, we felt like we played horrible,” said fifth-year for ward Grant Golden, who over came four fouls to finish with 13 points and seven rebounds. “We didn’t make any shots, but we knew as long as we kept run ning our offense, shots were going to start to fall eventually. But it was really on the defensive end for us. We put two really good halves of defense together and that’s what ended up win ning it for us.” A 9-0 burst gave the Spiders the lead, and a 7-0 stretch made it 58-46 with 7:43 remaining. In between, Francis and Tyler Bur ton hit 3-pointers and Cayo con verted a three-point play. Kentucky (1-1) got within eight before Richmond answered with Jacob Gilyard’s fast-break layup and Matt Grace’s 3-pointer for a 13-point edge with 4:40 left. Francis added a 3-pointer that made it 72-56 and sparked a celebration on the Spiders’ bench. Golden made two free throws for Richmond with 10 seconds left before Burton grabbed Ken tucky’s final miss to seal it.

The Crimson Tide got 62 firstplace votes for the second con secutive week and are followed by No. 2 Notre Dame, No. 3 Ohio State and No. 4 Clemson. Southeastern Conference teams Texas A&M and Florida are fifth and sixth, respectively. Unbeaten Cincinnati is seventh and undefeated BYU is eighth. The changes in the poll came after that, with Miami inching up to No. 9 and Indiana return ing to the top 10.

See RICHMOND/ Page B3 Top 8 intact for 4th week See POLL/ Page B3Unhappy at home FRED GOODALL AP sports writerTAMPA — When Tyreek Hill draws single coverage, Patrick Mahomes is going to find a way to get the ball to the Kansas City Chiefs’ most explosive receiver. Mahomes threw for 462 yards, includ ing touchdowns of 75, 44 and 20 yards to Hill, who finished with 13 catches for 269 yards in the reigning Super Bowl champions’ 27-24 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. “It feels good, you know, but I feel like there’s still a lot of work for me to do,” Hill said after going over 1,000 yards for the season. “I’m always trying to get better, got to be consistent with what you do,” Hill added. “Those same people showing you love this week, you make a bad play next week, they’re going to hate you.” Mahomes outplayed Tom Brady to win the fourth career matchup between the MVPs, completing 37 of 49 passes and holding the ball for more than 10 minutes without scoring on Kansas City’s last two possessions to put the game away. Hill benefited from Sammy Watkins’ return to the Chiefs lineup after being sidelined since Week 5 with a hamstring injury and got the best of a matchup with Bucs cornerback Carlton Davis, who often had no help trying to contain the speedy receiver. “We don’t get that a lot, especially with that guy and his ability,” Mahomes said. “So when we do, we try to take ad vantage of it.” Hill had seven catches for 203 yards and two touchdowns in the first quarter alone, joining Qadry Ismail (210 in the third quarter on Dec. 12, 1999) and Lee Evans (205 in the first quarter on Nov. 19, 2006) as the only NFL receivers since 1980 to have 200 yards worth of re ceptions in a single quarter. The fifth-year pro’s last catch — an 8-yarder on third-and-7 in the final min ute — gave Mahomes an opportunity to run out the clock. “The last one, I learned a long time ago, you don’t give Tom Brady another shot,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “That’s why he’s the G.O.A.T. So, don’t give them the ball back. That was the mindset there.” The Chiefs (10-1) won their sixth straight game and clinched their sev enth 10-win season in eight years under Reid. The defending champs improved to 6-0 on the road and have won nine straight away from home going back to last year. “Very, very few guys that I’ve seen in this league or any league that can back pedal eight, nine, 10, 11 yards in the pocket and throw a dime 25 yards down the field,” Bucs coach Bruce Arians said of Mahomes. “And he can read the de fense as he does it. That makes him more explosive.” Brady was 27 of 41 for 345 yards, three touchdowns and a pair of second-half interceptions in falling to 2-2 against Mahomes, who built an early 17-0 lead and also had the Chiefs up by 17 enter ing the fourth quarter. The Bucs (7-5) made it close, with Brady throwing TD passes of 31 and 7 yards to Mike Evans, the latter trim ming his team’s deficit deficit to 27-24 with 4:10 remaining. Tampa Bay, which has lost three straight home games, never got the ball back.

Mayfield connected with Jarvis Landry and Austin Hooper for scores, ending a three-game drought without a passing TD. Mayfield nearly had two more, but he inexpli-cably missed wide-open Rashard Higgins in the end zone in the second quarter, then watched Harrison Bryant drop another early in the fourth.

He returned for two plays on the next se-ries but then was relieved by backup Colt McCoy, who played the rest of the game. There was no immediate word on the seriousness of the injury.N.Y.

Now the defending rushing champion wants to finish the job with a division title and another deep playoff run. Henry battered the NFL’s second-stingiest defense for 140 yards and three touch-downs in the first half, fin-ished with 178 yards and led the Titans to a crucial 45-26 rout at Indianapolis. The win gives Tennessee (8-3) sole possession of the division lead, a split in the two-game season series and a tie-breaking edge based on current division records of the teams. Henry also padded his lead as he chases a sec-ond straight rushing crown.Tennessee 45, Indianapolis 26Tennessee 14 21 3 7 — 45 Indianapolis 7 7 0 12 — 26 First Quarter Ten—Henry 12 run (Gostkowski kick), 9:12.

The host Wildcats started four freshmen along with senior transfer Olivier Sarr, and growing pains showed after a crisp opening rout of Morehead State. Kentucky committed 11 of its 21 turnovers in the second half, all of which Richmond converted into 22 points after going scoreless before halftime. The Wildcats also didn’t re cord an assist after posting five before the break, in addition to shooting 31%. Of the six Wildcats that played at least 10 minutes, five were freshman. Richmond shot 59% from the field after halftime. It was the Spiders’ first victory over a ranked team on the road since topping No. 14 Virginia Commonwealth 64-55 on Jan. 31, 2015. The Spiders improved to 14-22 against top 25 opponents. B.J. Boston Jr. had 20 points and Sarr 17 for Kentucky, which outre bounded Richmond 54-31 but shot 36% and all missed all 10 tries from behind the arc. “It’s a lesson for all of us,” Sarr said. “It’s just the second game of the year. We’ve got to pick our heads up, be cause we got a whole lot of games coming. ... Just learn from our mis takes and move on.”No. 2 Baylor 86, Washington 52LAS VEGAS — Jared Butler scored 20 points and Baylor won again without coach Scott Drew. Assistant coach Jerome Tang is direct-ing the Bears with Drew in a 10-day isola-tion period after testing positive for COVID-19.

Sasser, whose career high of 26 points came at SMU in Dallas as a freshman last season, was 5 of 15 from the field as the Cougars (3-0) overcame 35% shooting at Dickies Arena. A 3-pointer from Grimes opened the scoring and put the Red Raiders behind for the first time this season. Texas Tech (2-1) went six minutes without scoring in the first half and trailed by 18 just 12 min-utes into the game.No. 18 Arizona State 100, Houston Baptist 77TEMPE, Ariz. — Marcus Bagley scored 21 points, fellow freshman Josh Christo-pher added 17 and Arizona State used a huge first-half run to rout Houston Baptist.

The New England Patriots were fined $350,000 for similar violations, the per-son said, speaking to the AP on condition of anonymity because neither the league nor the teams have announced the fines or loss of draft pick. New Orleans was fined as a repeat of-fender; Sean Payton previously was docked $150,000 and the team $250,000 because the head coach failed to prop-erly wear a face covering during a Week 2 game against the Raiders. The more recent issue with the Saints came after a Week 9 win over Tampa Bay when the team’s celebrations included players not wearing masks while in close proximity to one another. The celebra-tions were captured on video by some players and posted to social media. The Saints are expected to appeal the discipline, which ESPN first reported Sunday morning. New England, which had a minioutbreak of COVID-19 earlier this season that included positive tests for quarter-back Cam Newton and cornerback Ste-phon Gilmore, was fined for not following protocols at that time.Jaguars fire GM Caldwell following 10th straight lossJACKSONVILLE — Jacksonville Jag-uars owner Shad Khan considered firing general manager Dave Caldwell last year. He ultimately gave him a chance to show what he could do without personnel chief Tom Coughlin wreaking havoc on the salary cap and the locker room. Caldwell came up well short of the owner’s winning expectations, making Khan’s decision an easy and somewhat expected one. Khan fired Caldwell on Sunday after the team’s 10th consecutive loss, its single-season record. The move sends a clear message that the small-market franchise is headed in a new direction. “Dave was exceptionally committed and determined to bring a winner to Jacksonville, but unfortunately his efforts were not rewarded with the results our fans deserve and our organization ex-pects,” Khan said after a 27-25 loss to Cleveland. “Our football operation needs new leadership, and we will have it with a new general manager in 2021.” Khan will keep coach Doug Marrone and his staff to finish out the season and likely let the next general manager de-cide their fate. It would be stunning to see Marrone return in 2021. Former San Francisco executive Trent Baalke will serve as interim GM. Vanderbilt fires coach Mason in his 7th seasonNASHVILLE, Tenn. — Vanderbilt fired coach Derek Mason on Sunday after los-ing the first eight games of his seventh season, and offensive coordinator Todd Fitch will serve as the interim coach. “While this was a difficult decision, but I know this change is necessary,” athletic di-rector Candice Lee said in a statement. “We wish Derek and his entire family the best.” Mason posted a statement on Twitter thanking Nashville and Vanderbilt for em-bracing his family. He said he was grate-ful to be Vanderbilt’s coach the past seven years.— From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS Florida LOTTERY rfntnfb PICK 2 (early) 4 9 PICK 2 (late) 6 1 PICK 3 (early) 9 9 5 PICK 3 (late) 8 5 5 PICK 4 (early) 6 4 0 3 PICK 4 (late) 1 2 4 2 PICK 5 (early) 9 7 8 9 2 PICK 5 (late) 6 9 2 0 0 FANTASY 5 19 30 31 32 35 CASH 4 LIFE 9 17 18 28 38 CASH BALL 3 rffnb Powerball: 8 – 12 – 18 – 44 – 51 Powerball: 18 5-of-5 PB No winner No Florida winner 5-of-5 No winner No Florida winner Lotto: 2 – 4 – 8 – 11 – 26 – 32 6-of-6 1 winner $16.5 million 5-of-6 2x 11 winners $6,000 5-of-6 3x 6 winners $9,000 5-of-6 4x 9 winners $12,000 5-of-6 5x 7 winners $15,000 5-of-6 10x 1 winner $30,000 Fantasy 5: 3 – 4 – 12 – 14 – 29 5-of-5 1 winner $208,549.71 4-of-5 321 $104.50 3-of-5 9,598 $9.50 Cash 4 Life: 11 – 13 – 23 – 49 – 58 Cash Ball: 2 5-of-5 CB No winner 5-of-5 No winner MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2020 B3 CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE play in the fall.

Who had Flames-Chanticleers as a matchup of ranked teams when the game was scheduled in August?POLLContinued from Page B1 We battled back but we left ourselves a big deficit,” Brady said. “When you play a good offense we’ve got to do our job offensively and keep them off the field.” The Chiefs led 20-7 at halftime. The Bucs were fortunate they weren’t in a bigger hole. Kansas City ran 42 plays to Tampa Bay’s 22 in the first two quarters, outgain ing the Bucs 377 yards to 131 with Mahomes throwing for 359 yards and Brady 117. Three drives inside the Bucs 20, however, only net ted a pair of short field goals. Shaquil Barrett sacked Mahomes, forcing a fumble that William Gholston recovered at the 14 with the Chiefs looking to build on a 17-0 lead. Bashaud Breeland and Tyrann Mathieu picked off Brady. The Chiefs hurt themselves with a pair of roughing the passer penal ties on the 10-play, 73-yard drive the six-time Super Bowl champion put to gether to close the gap to three points. The loss comes on the heels of home defeats to New Orleans and the Los Angeles Rams, games in which Brady played poorly and left his new team searching for answers about the offense’s inconsistency. Brady isn’t listening to critics, who feel the Bucs ar en’t tailoring their scheme to what he’s done best during his career. “Just external noise. When you’re losing that’s what you deal with,” Brady said. “I love playing with the guys, and the whole organi zation is unbelievable. I’ve just got to do a better job in the final four games.”LONG DROUGHTThe Chiefs beat Tampa Bay for the first time since Sept. 5, 1993, when Joe Mon tana led Kansas City to a 27-3 victory. The Bucs had won five straight in a series the Chiefs lead 8-5.INJURIES Buccaneers: LG Ali Mar pet returned to the lineup after missing three games because of a concussion.

Bezuidenhout finished with a 69 to win on 14 under par overall, four shots clear of overnight leader Meronk (76) and another three players tied for second at Leopard Creek Country Club. It didn’t look on for home player Bezuidenhout at the turn after he made a double-bogey at No. 7 and a bogey at No. 8. But he pulled it together on the back nine, picking up three birdies and avoiding any more dropped shots to claim a second European Tour title. Bezuidenhout won comfortably at the end after the other contenders all struggled to break par. The 26-year-old South African’s career has been difficult. He was handed a doping ban as an amateur because of medication he takes to help with anxiety and a stutter that was caused when he acciden tally drank rat poison as a child and nearly died. The Alfred Dunhill Championship has a long history of home winners but Bezuidenhout is the first South African to take the title since 2016. “This tournament has been close to my heart since I played it for the first time,” he said. “It’s always been a tournament I wanted to win and to pull it off today is re ally, really special to me.” Alfred Dunhill ChampionshipSunday at The Leopard Creek Country Club, Malelane, South Africa Purse: $1.8 million; Yardage: 6,663; Par: 72 Final Round Christiaan Bezuidenhout, South Africa 69-68-68-69 -14 Richard Bland, England 67-67-74-70 -10 Sean Crocker, United States 70-68-68-72 -10 Adrian Meronk, Poland 65-66-71-76 -10 Jayden Trey Schaper, South Africa 69-67-67-75 -10 Marcus Armitage, England 71-71-67-70 -9 Adri Arnaus, Spain 70-67-69-73 -9 Scott Jamieson, Scotland 66-71-72-70 -9 Alexander Levy, France 70-72-68-69 -9 Robert Macintyre, Scotland 72-70-70-67 -9 Fabrizio Zanotti, Paraguay 71-71-68-70 -8 Wilco Nienaber, South Africa 71-68-72-70 -7 Wil Besseling, Netherlands 73-70-68-71 -6 Calum Hill, Scotland 71-69-67-75 -6 Matthias Schwab, Austria 70-71-68-73 -6 Oliver Wilson, England 69-68-73-70 -6 Pedro Figueiredo, Portugal 72-68-69-74 -5 Scott Vincent, Zimbabwe 72-70-71-70 -5 Dale Whitnell, England 70-72-71-70 -5 Oliver Farr, Wales 70-68-73-73 -4 Joachim B.

If that doesn’t work ei ther, that’s because we are closed.” If you are hoping to receive a ruff, you have to find an open door to partner’s hand, an entry. This deal was fun for East-West. How did the defense go against four spades after West led her sin gleton club? South described his hand well with the immediate jump to four spades — a strong eight-card suit and little else. Declarer won the first trick with dummy’s club jack, and East signaled with the nine, the high est being a suit-preference signal for hearts, the higher-ranking of the other two side suits. South played a trump and, when East discarded, won with his ace and continued with the spade queen. West won with her king and shifted to the heart two, the low card guaranteeing an honor in the suit. East, trusting his partner, won with the heart queen and led the club eight for partner to ruff. (West had to be void because with the queen-10 doubleton, she would have led the queen, not the 10.) West knew that she could give her partner the lead with a heart to the ace. Then another club would promote the spade 10 as a winner. However, it seemed that South had started with 8=2=1=2 distribution. If so, after a heart to the ace and a club, South would discard his diamond, making a loser-on-loser play. Anticipating this, West cashed the diamond ace before playing a second heart. Then the third club resulted in down three.

Though they have a losing record at the season’s midpoint, the Eagles are the best of a bad East with Wentz providing inconsistent leadership and performance. The Seahawks, meanwhile, are one of the NFL’s best teams with former MVP Wilson once again leading a formidable attack. 8 p.m. on (LIFE)Movie: The Christmas Listing Julia, a highly competitive real-estate company owner, has lost her Christmas spirit, and she doubts she’s going to find it as she spends the next several days at a Christmas inn with her chief rival, as each tries to land the listing for the property. As both these Type-A personalities vie over this business matter, though, each starts to realize that the other is a lot less one-dimensional and more likable than it seemed at first. Lexi Giovagnoli, Travis Burns, Greg Evigan, Rachel O’Connell and Susan Chambers star. 9 p.m. on CMA Country Christmas Filmed for the first time without an audience this past September, this annual yuletide musical fan favorite is shooting for a more intimate feel during this pandemic holiday season. Husband and wife Rhett and Lauren Akin make their TV hosting debut together with the one-hour special, which will highlight performances by Kelsea Ballerini, Gabby Barrett, Dan & Shay, Florida Georgia Line, Lady A, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, Thomas Rhett and Darius Rucker with Lindsey Stirling. 9 p.m. on Filthy Rich This soapy drama adapted from a hit New Zealand series wraps up Season 1 with Corinthians 3:13,” a finale in which the embattled Monreaux family finds out an explosive secret — yes, another one — that threatens to tear their clan apart. Elsewhere, Margaret (Kim Cattrall) feels compelled to step in to protect her daughter Rose (Aubrey Dollar) when the latter intends to take a big step in her relationship with Mark (Mark L. Young). 9 p.m. on (ID)Ypsilanti: Keith Morrison Investigates In this new two-hour true-crime special, veteran Dateline NBC correspondent Keith Morrison revisits a 1993 missing persons case in Michigan that eventually went cold for investigators until a more recent case provided fresh clues. The first incident involved Ypsilanti, Mich., woman Tammy Niver, who vanished without a trace, although her car was found. Her boyfriend at the time, Greg Agnew, briefly was a person of interest, and the case was reopened recently after another area woman linked to Agnew was found murdered. 10 p.m. on (TRAV)Dark Tales with Don Wildman As one of the most familiar personalities, Don Wildman often has demonstrated his love of adventure, ideally with a good story to go with it, and in this new series he delivers tales of the weird and spooky from around the world. In the premiere, “Women Scorned,” his topic is female spirits who cannot rest because of their need to get revenge. Among them: a woman accused of seducing husbands via witchcraft and an Inca princess who still guards her family’s treasure by means of a fatal curse.

D ear Annie: I’ve been seeing this man since we met in 2017. He hasn’t introduced me to any family members or friends. When I ask him why, he al ways says there’s never a chance to. I’m thinking to myself that there have been plenty of chances, but he just doesn’t take them. This is es pecially true during the holi days, when he goes to see them. I’ve asked him if he’s ashamed to be seen with me, and he says no. I have asked him why he won’t commit to me, and he says that would be a major com mitment. I’ve already told him that if he wants to date other women, then he should leave me be. — Broken Heart Dear Broken Heart: The only way to put your heart back together is to get as far away from this man as possi ble. Three years is a long time for someone not to introduce you to his friends or family. I smell a rat. Maybe he has a wife or seri ous girlfriend. You deserve much better than this man. Like ripping off a Band-Aid, it will sting when you first leave him. However, in the long run, you will be much better off with a connected and compas sionate partner who wants you to be a part of his whole life. Dear Annie: I am sibling No. 3 out of four. I am es tranged from Nos. 2 and 4. This was my choice, and a wise decision. They are ma nipulative bullies, and after years of trying to have a rela tionship with them, I finally gave up. My younger sibling tried to manipulate me with a fake suicide threat because I would not give in to her de mands. My older brother is an emotionally unavailable bully who has taken advantage of my father by using his credit cards and then not paying him back. I have tried to address these issues, but they always turn the table and tell me that I am the problem. Dad turns 90 next summer, and my oldest sibling wants us to fly home (COVID-19 permit ting) to have a dinner celebra tion at a restaurant. Annie, I don’t want to go. I cannot bring myself to sit across the table from these two. I refuse to fake it or pretend that ev erything is fine. If I do this, I will be resent ful toward myself. I am not willing, not even for Dad. I am planning to fly later in the month to take Dad and my stepmother out to dinner. We get along really well. They are aware of the estrangement and have remained neutral, which is good. Do you have any other suggestions? — Sibling 3 Has Left the Building Dear Sibling 3: It sounds like there’s a great deal of hurt, anger and miscommunication here. A suicide threat is never something to dismiss as just being manipulative. It is often a cry for help (which I’m hoping she received from a professional). As far as your older brother being emotion ally unavailable and taking advantage of your father, he can’t be a very happy person. But on your point that every conversation ends with the ta bles being turned on you, this might be an indication of things you have to work on as well. Relationships are twoway streets, and rarely is one person completely at fault. Be introspective and see if you can find forgiveness in your heart for them, at least so you can go to your dad’s 90th birthday. You don’t have to sit at their table, and remember, it’s not a birthday about you; it’s for your father, and my guess is that nothing would make him happier than having all of his children in attendance.
