LIFE STORIES

Just a bunch

of old ...
S cond Wednesday of November
and 20 men sit at two long tables
at the William A. GarveyVFW Post
8203 in North Port. (A woman later joins
the group.)
=S- They are there
for what you might
call nourishment
Lk and fellowship. All
) are members in
good standing with
the I.O.O.B. the
International Order
of Old Bastards.
"You'll notice there
Steve is no call to order,
there's no treasurer's
BAUMANN report or anything,
COLUMNIST no agenda. We're just
a group of guys who
get together and have lunch two days a
month, have some beer, tell some jokes,"
says Dick Gortz.
Yes they do. Tell jokes.
Just a bunch of OBs sitting around and
BSing for an hour or so. (The woman,
who remains nameless for her own
protection, is officially a Bastardette.)
My official guide for the noon meal
is the president and "Arch-OB" Norm
Olszewski. Norm and his buddy Dick
came from the same town in Ohio and
now live in the Holiday Park community.
(In fact, most of the OBs here are Holiday
Parkers either "two-thirds" or "75 per-
cent," depending on who's calculating.
The exact wrong number is a subject of
ongoing debate pre-entree course.)
Next to Norm sits Wishy. To my left
is Jim and next to him is Frank. Frank's
from Nantucket. Seriously. (Fill in your
own limerick here. They did.)
"We have no objectives," Dick says.
"We just get together, drinking and telling
jokes."
After a beat he adds, "Well, I guess that
kind of is an objective."
The North Port I.O.O.B. meets every
second and fourthWednesday of the
month, except for November and
December when they meet once a
month and maybe not in the summer
months. (It was a bit vague.)
Lunch today at the VFW is turkey,
mashed potatoes, yams and stuffing. The
beverage of choice is beer. Mid-meal,
Jim tosses out a quick joke (on the clean
side):
"One time, you know, my wife asks me,
'You think you can perform tonight?'
"I say, what do you want me to do, the
soft-shoe or what?"
Ba-dip-boom.
Carol, of the VFW, stops by to collect
money from the OBs. Of course, she has
a couple of zingers handy.
"What do you call a guy..." is the first.
And then, "They're up in a plane..."
Laughs all around is all I'll say.
After pumpkin pie, the official jesting
gets underway. Each OB jokester stands
to address the other OBs.
First comes a variation on a classic:
"This blonde was driving down the
road..."
Which ends with, "Oh, you're OK. I
didn't know you were a policeman."
Next up: "The Lone Ranger was
captured by an Indian tribe..."
The punchline? "Posse, I said posse."
Then: "A golfer finishes up his round
of golf and goes into the 19th hole, and
there's Carol tending bar..."
(I can't repeat the ending).
This goes on for awhile. Viagra jokes,
ethnic jokes (one featuring an Irish
accent), jokes about police and flatu-
lence (involving turkey innards, believe
it or not.)
After awhile, the stand-up humor pe-
ters out. Then comes a raffle. I am asked
to draw and my neighbor, Jim, wins a few
bucks. It wasn't fixed, I swear.
The meeting eventually comes to a
close and the OBs meander off, but not
before a few take a detour into the VFW
bar. More jokes to come.

A mess of a crash


Four-car wreck, fuel leak shut down U.S. 41


By ADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER
PORT CHARLOTTE Early
Monday morning, Valentin Pupo Jr.,
23, of Cape Coral, filled his dump
truck's massive twin fuel tanks with
100 gallons of diesel fuel before
heading to a job in Port Charlotte.
Around 8:15 a.m. almost to
his destination Pupo's truck
was one of four vehicles involved
in a crash on southbound U.S. 41
at the intersection of West Tarpon
Boulevard. About 80 gallons of the


truck's fuel spilled onto the road. All
southbound lanes of U.S. 41 were
shut down from Midway Boulevard
to West Tarpon Boulevard for more
than three hours while officials
cleaned up the mess.
The wreck occurred after an on-
duty Charlotte County Sheriff's Office
deputy was making an emergency
turn across U.S. 41 with lights and
sirens on, the Florida Highway Patrol
reported. The dump truck rear-ended
a pickup and a sedan, which had
stopped at the intersection. The sedan
was pushed into the CCSO patrol


car, which as a precaution before
turning had also stopped.
The dump truck's fuel tanks cracked
in the collision.
"I saw the green light in front of
me, but the cars in front of me were
stopped," Pupo said. "I had plenty of
distance, and I hit the brakes as fast
as I could."
The driver said he was going about
40 mph. He said he tried to steer
his truck between the pickup and
sedan that were in front of him when

Local family recovering



after 1-10 rollover Sunday


By ADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER
Four members of a Port Charlotte
family were involved in a rollover early
Sunday on Interstate 10. Two remained
hospitalized Monday one in serious
condition.
The Feehans Edward, 47; Kimberly
Lynn Petersen-Feehan, 39; Tyler, 16;
and Abigale, 13 were all taken to hos-
pitals in the Panhandle after their 2003
GMC pickup rolled about three times
on 1-10, just east of the mile-marker


60 rest area, according to the Florida
Highway Patrol.
The incident occurred at 6:50 a.m.
Kimberly the driver told authori-
ties she fell asleep at the wheel and lost
control of the vehicle.
The truck drifted into the median for
almost 400 feet before crossing back
over the eastbound lanes and onto the
shoulder, which caused the vehicle to
spin and then roll, the report shows.
Authorities say Tyler was partially
ejected and received serious arm
injuries. Representatives from Sacred


Heart Hospital in Pensacola said the
boy was in the surgical center there
Monday, and Edward also was still at
the hospital.
Kimberly was taken to Sacred Heart,
too, but was discharged Sunday.
Abigale was taken to North Okaloosa
Medical Center in Crestview and also
was discharged Sunday.
According to the FHP, the front
passenger was ejected from the vehicle,
but it didn't specify which family

Kiwanians go all out for 'Diaper Dump' collection


f you read this
column, you know
I like good ideas,
and catchy names are a
plus. Here's something I
know for sure: Our local
Kiwanians have some
of the best ideas, and
they come up with some
catchy names.
In the past year, I've
written about Sunrise
Kiwanis' Shoes for Kids
collection, the Socks for
Kids put on by the Punta
Gorda Kiwanis, and
Larry Taylor's "Undie
Sunday" collection. All
have been a hit, and all
get people to donate
items they know will
do some good in the
community.
So here's their latest


/

I,.

t


Good
Ideas


Chris
Porter


project: It's the Diaper
Dump!
Now, what does that
name conjure with you?
OK, so once you get
past that, think about
what it means the
Kiwanians are collecting
diapers (yes, unused) for
struggling families. As
every parent and many
grandparents know,
the money you have


to budget for a week's
worth of diapers can
wipe you out. (Sorry.)
Seriously, you can spend
$25 to $30 a week, and
that's not covered by
food stamps, WIC or
other programs. It can
be a real burden if you're
having tough times.
The Diaper Dump
is actually a statewide
effort, explained Connie
Thrasher, secretary of
the Sunrise Kiwanis in
Port Charlotte.
Connie is coordinat-
ing this for her eight-
club Kiwanis District,
which includes clubs in
Port Charlotte, Punta
Gorda, North Port,
Englewood and Venice.
Each is responsible for


its own collection.
"We couldn't set up
collection boxes, be-
cause this time of year,
there are other collec-
tion boxes out all over,"
Thrasher explained.
"We're leaving it up to
the individual clubs and
members to get them
collected."
They're doing a good
job, with several thou-
sand diapers already
collected.
It's going to be up to
the clubs to make sure
the collected diapers
get in the right hands
too. "We have about
20 agencies that need
them," Thrasher said.
The plan is pretty
simple. Go to a store and


buy a big bag of diapers
- any size will do. If
you know a Kiwanian,
just give him or her the
diapers. If you don't
know a Kiwanian, call
941-625-1858 for further
instructions.
The collection start-
ed Sunday and runs
through Dec. 14.

Update on Sun
bikes
We're about a
week into the Sun
Newspapers' annual
bicycle collection drive,
but we still have a long
way to go.
This year, project coor-
dinator Nathan Lane has
set a goal of collecting


enough for 40 bikes.
We've already started
collecting around the
office, but we're asking
everyone to help. If you'd
like to donate, contact
Nathan at 941-206-1138
or nlane@sun-herald.
com. You also can bring
or mail a donation to the
Charlotte Sun office at
23170 Harborview Road,
Charlotte Harbor. Make
the checks out to Nathan
Lane.

utive editor of the Sun

I COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFS


Gallery announces
guest artist for
December
Sea Grape Gallery, 113 W
Marion Ave., Punta Gorda,
will showcase the works of
artist CorleenWhitman,
a Raku potter, during
the month of December.
Whitman began studying
the art of producing Raku
pottery in 1990, while
living in Michigan. After
moving to Englewood, she
attended many workshops
and classes in order to fur-
ther her knowledge of the
unique Raku process. She
found that the unpredict-
able nature of Raku was a
great appeal to her.
Whitman's Raku pottery
will be on display at Sea
Grape Gallery during the
month of December. She
will be available at the
gallery during December's
Gallery Walk to describe
her Raku firing process.


Her art also may be viewed
at www.seagrapegallery.
com. The gallery's hours
are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday;
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday;
and until 8 p.m. the third
Thursday of each month
for GalleryWalk. To learn
more about Sea Grape's
Guest Artist Program, call
941-575-1718.

Audubon Society
offers WalkAbout
The Peace River
Audubon Society will
offer a December
WalkAbout at 8 a.m.
Dec. 3 at the Prairie Shell
Creek Preserve, 3081
Duncan Road (U.S. 17),
east of Punta Gorda. The
sign to the preserve will
be on the left. This prop-
erty is a great place to
observe the Florida scrub
jay in its native scrub oak
habitat. The scrub jay is


the only bird endemic to
the state of Florida, and
it is listed as a threatened
species. There are several
scrub jay families on this
property.
On the WalkAbout,
participants also may
observe other birds that
like a dry-sandy habitat.
There also is a manmade
lake on the property, and
natural marshes where
participants may see a
variety of wading birds.
For those who enjoy trees,
plants and wildflowers,
this scrub property has
some very special species:
sky-blue lupine, deer
moss lichen, turkey oaks
and sand pines.
Attendees should
bring hiking shoes,
water, sunscreen, bug
spray and a hat. There
are no restrooms at
this preserve. For more
information, call Phyllis
at 941-286-7638.

Robert Burton Jennings
Robert Burton "Bob" Jennings, 90, passed away
peacefully Saturday, Nov. 23, 2013, at home in

-and son, Christopher at his side.
Bob was born July 31, 1923, in
Bridgeport, Conn., the son of Lorrin
M s Hull and Ethel K. Jennings.
He was a graduate of Trinity
College in Hartford, Conn., and
served in the U.S. Navy in World
War II as an officer aboard the USS
Kretchmer in the Pacific Theater.
Bob met the love of his life, the former,
Shirley Narvesen, in Hartford and
'" they married in the Trinity College
Chapel, Aug. 30, 1947. Most of his
professional career was in the carpet industry,
culminating in the position of president and CEO
of Bigelow-Sanford, Inc. After "retiring" to Grafton,
Vt., in 1972, Bob became president and CEO of
Reifenhauser-NABCO, Inc. in Springfield, Vt.,
where he served until 1983.
While Bob's presence will be remembered by
his physical stature, his magnanimous personality
cannot be understated. Throughout his life, Bob
was involved in community, professional, and
civic organizations. He was a Rotarian; a former
board member of the Gunlocke Company; Lea
Industries; Bigelow-Sanford; Wee Burn Country
Club; the Springfield, Vt., IDA; the Carpet and Rug
Institute; and the Home Furnishing Council and
a longtime member of the Union League Club
in New York City, N.Y.; and the Tokeneke Club in
Darien, Conn. Bob was also instrumental in the
rehabilitation of the Hartness State Airport in
Springfield, in 1982.
He is survived by his wife; four sons; nine
grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren. Bob
was preceded in death by both parents; and his
brother, Donald.
A memorial service will be held at a later date
in Grafton, where his ashes will be interred at the
family site. To express your lively memories of
Bob please consider Trinity College Alumni Fund,
Tidewell Hospice of Florida or a charity of your
choice.

Report: Man brandishes


cleaver over turkey carving


PUNTAGORDA- A
local man remained
behind bars Monday
after a Thanksgiving day
incident at his home in
which he threatened his
girlfriend with a meat
cleaver because she didn't
know how to carve a
turkey, according to the
Charlotte County Sheriff's
Office.
Jay Russell Londin,
58, of the 5000 block of
Palermo Drive in Punta
Gorda, has been charged
with aggravated assault
with the intent to commit
a felony after the alleged
outburst around 7 p.m.
Londin came out of a
room yelling that "no one
knew how to cut a turkey,
and he would therefore
take care of it," the report
shows.
He picked up a meat
cleaver, but allegedly
turned to his girlfriend
instead of the turkey.
The victim says Londin
grabbed her and she
was in fear for her life.
Witnesses confirmed this,
the report shows.
Londin is being held in
the Charlotte County Jail
on $5,000 bond.

Report: Man beats,
traps girlfriend
ENGLEWOOD- A
man accused of beating
his girlfriend Sunday
and trapping her in their
house was arrested after
the victim snuck out
when he fell asleep, ac-
cording to the Charlotte
County Sheriff's Office.


I POLICE BEAT
The information for Police Beat is gathered from police, sheriff's office, Florida High way
Patrol, jail and fire records. Not every arrest leads to a conviction and guilt or innocence is
determined by the court system.


Jason Mattew Finton,
44, of the 100 block of
East Riverview Avenue
in Englewood, has been
charged with battery,
false imprisonment,
depriving a victim of
medical care and tamper-
ing with a witness by not
letting them call 911.
Finton allegedly came
home intoxicated around
4 a.m. Sunday and told
his girlfriend he had
been in a fight because
of her. The report shows
he attacked her while she
was laying on the bed,
and he wouldn't let her
call 911 or go to the hos-
pital. Finton fell asleep
shortly before 6 a.m., and
the victim sneaked out
of the house to drive to
Englewood Community
Hospital for treatment.
She received stitches
for a laceration near her
left eye, which was swol-
len. At one point during
the attack, the victim told
authorities she may have
passed out.
Finton was being held
Monday at the Charlotte
County Jail without bond.

The Charlotte County Sheriff's
Office reported the following
arrests:
Francis Michael Dugan, 39,500
block of Pennyroyal Place, Venice.
Charges: petty theft and resisting a
merchant during retail theft. Bond:
$2,000.

SUN CORRESPONDENT

PUNTAGORDA -Just
before 8 a.m. on Sunday,
Dec. 7, 1941, U.S. Army
Privates George Elliot
Jr. and Joseph Lockhart
detected blips on their
radar screen at Opana
Point, the northernmost
part of the island of
Oahu, located in the
Hawaiian Islands.
Both men quickly
relayed the information
to their superiors, who
said it was nothing to
be alarmed about six
B-17 Flying Fortresses
were arriving from
California.
They were wrong.
Actually, it was the van-
guard of a first wave of
more than 350 Japanese
fighters, bombers and
torpedo planes that were
going to bomb and strafe
the U.S. Naval Base at
Pearl Harbor. That sneak
attack, which resulted in


more than 2,400 deaths
and nearly 1,300 wound-
ed, catapulted America
into World War II.
On Saturday at Center
Court in Fishermen's
Village, a Pearl Harbor
Remembrance Day
ceremony will be held to
pay tribute to the sacri-
fices of those individuals
who were killed and
wounded on that tragic
day 72 years ago. The
program will kick off at
5 p.m. A reception will
follow at the museum.
Admission is free and
open to the public.
Hank Mastowski
of the Marine Corps
League and Kim Lovejoy,
executive director of
the Military Heritage
Museum, are coordi-
nating the event that
will honor two Pearl
Harbor survivors John
Giddion and Bill Raney,
who both served in the
U.S. Navy.
The keynote speaker


will be retired U.S.
Marine Maj. Larry
Altenburg. The Charlotte
County Chapter of the
U.S. Paratroopers will
provide the color guard.
American Legion Post
110 Honor Guard will
fire the 21-gun salute.
Marine Corps League
detachment member Bill
Crites will play taps.
Active duty personnel
representing all branches
of the armed services
will conduct a wreath
laying ceremony. Music
will be provided by Barb
Mendillo on keyboard
and the Royal Canadian
Legion Pipes and Drums.
The event is spon-
sored by the Charlotte
CountyVeterans Council,
the Charlotte County
Marine Corps League
Detachment 756, and
the Military Heritage
Museum.
For more information,
call Mastowski at
941-764-8286.

I OUR VIEW

Florida dodges

another

hurricane season,

now what?
or the eighth straight year,
Florida was not impacted by
a land-falling hurricane.
With hurricane preparedness
drilled into our heads and our hab-
its, many of us now have unused
storm kits and supplies, including
batteries, water jugs, canned food
and filled gas cans. While some of
this will keep or can be used up
over time, other items will spoil, go
bad or present safety issues. Here's
what you can do.
Canned goods: Food pantries
and homeless shelters are always
low on supplies this time of year.
Find one near you and drop off
your canned goods. Don't forget
your local animal shelter if you
stocked up on extras for your furry
friends.
Battieries: Battery shelf life is
limited and chances are they
won't work this time next year. But
Christmas offers a great chance to
put them to use by bundling batter-
ies with electronic gifts. If you keep
your batteries, remove them from
flashlights, radios and lanterns as
they could corrode and ruin them.
Water jugs: Plastic bottles
deteriorate over time and can
crack, leaving you with minor water
damage or worse. You can use
them before the bottles go bad by
watering plants or freezing them to
use in a cooler.
Gasoline: If you stocked up
on gas for your generator or car,
remember that fuel has a limited
shelf life. Condensation, oxidation
and evaporation are among the
problems with stored gas, not to
mention the danger presented by
fumes released from poorly sealed
containers. Adding fuel stabilizer is
one option, but your best bet is to
add it to your car tank and get more
gas next year.
Here's another helpful post-hur-
ricane season tip via the Pinellas
County Emergency Management
Office: When you send out your
holiday cards, add a note with
updated contact info if you've
changed an email address or
cellphone number.


Seniors not

forgotten

hey say Christmas is for kids.
And, to a large degree,
that is true. No one gets as
excited opening up presents as a
child. And, when that present is
exactly what they asked Santa for,
the enthusiasm is intensified.
The image of excited children
opening presents and the idea that
many children in our area may
not have presents to open is what
spawned a number of organiza-
tions and businesses to put up
angel trees each year.
Those, of course, are trees
located in various businesses
that have cards attached with the
names of children whose family
cannot afford presents, or children
who for one reason or another, do
not have a family. The cards list
a number of gifts the kids have
requested.
Mike Levine, owner of the
Home Instead Cafe franchise in
Venice and South Sarasota County,
believes there are seniors in our
communities who are just as needy
as kids.
Levine is sponsoring Be a Santa
to a Senior trees in Englewood,
Venice and North Port. His goal is
to gather enough presents to make
the holiday a little happier for 400
or more seniors most of them
who have no family and are alone
for Christmas.
Levine quietly began the charity
about 10 years ago. Last year, he
was able to collect gifts for about
200 seniors-- whose names
he collects from social service
caseworkers, the Salvation Army,
nursing homes and other agencies.
You can find trees at Beall's
Outlet stores in Englewood, Venice
and North Port or call 941-375-8400
for more information.


We think it is a marvelous idea to
embrace our seniors and make sure
they are not forgotten at Christmas.

Supreme Court
isn't representative

Editor:
Do you know the religious
affiliation of the nine Supreme
Court justices? Six are Catholic,
three are Jewish. Is that
representative of the U.S. pop-
ulation? Oh well, it's not like
they ever make any decisions
related to religion.

LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

Fed spending will
break our economy

Editor:
As conservatives, we con-
stantly ask, how can we con-
tinue to spend money that we
don't have? We know the limits
of our family income and we
know that overspending equals
increased debt which does
nothing but make us poorer.
But in Washington, the
excessive spending continues
without much change. Sure,
we have the sequester, but we
still are sending aid to most
countries of the world. We
still subsidize green energy
companies, and we continue
to grow the federal payroll.
The sequester really was only a
bump in the spending road.
Here's the secret. If our
household, our school system,
our county or our state had
printing presses, we could
spend like drunken sailors.
What would you do with a
government printing press in
your garage? The possibilities
are endless. That is until some-
one wised up and said, "Hey,
that money is as worthless as
Monopoly money," then the
ride would end.
Well, eventually, the world
will wise up to the Fed's print-
ing presses and our money
will no longer be the reserve
currency of the world and we
will no longer be in the driver's
seat. In addition, we will see
inflation, where it could take
100 of those phony dollars to
get a gallon of gas. And wages
won't begin to keep up. You
think things are rough now?
They aren't done with us yet.

Fundraisers,
or Obamacare?

Editor:
Barbara Bean-Melllinger
wrote an interesting piece
about Lori Bell, a 20-year post-
al employee who has cancer
and other health problems.
To help Ms. Bell a friend is
holding an event to raise funds
to offset medical expenses.
Through the year, there
have been other articles about
people with health issues who
either do not have health insur-
ance or whose insurance falls
short of covering all medical
expenses. Almost daily we
have letters to the editor from
people who are strongly against
the Affordable Care Act (ACA).


I wonder why there are people
who would rather see their
neighbors either go bankrupt
or depend on community
fundraisers to pay for medical
care. Conservatives have been
strongly opposed to any type
of universal health care as long
as I can remember and I can re-
member back to Harry Truman.
I have never understood this.
Peter Durham
Punta Gorda

Homeless should
be spread out

Editor:
This is my perspective in
response to homeless housing
near downtown Englewood:
Have any of the "local offi-
cials" seen or heard of projects
and the stigma involved?
Placing these people, and
namely their offspring, togeth-
er may place them in jeopardy
of becoming part of a gang.
Distributing the homeless in
various neighborhoods where
they could be more readily as-
similated to their surroundings
might be more beneficial. Every
town has an undesirable neigh-
borhood because of economic
circumstances, sometimes in
sheer negligence and neglect.
Whatever the reason, let's not
perpetuate it here.
How does the local business
community feel about the
proposal?
I am speaking as a person
who has seen these "good
ideas" crumble almost as fast as
the buildings that were built in
good faith.
Consider housing our home-
less randomly and welcome
them into all neighborhoods.
Dolores Van Slambrouck
Englewood


Canada's health
service a model

Editor:
Let's call it health service.
We have police, fire, mil-
itary and various state and
municipal services that are
not funded through insurance
premiums. Why should health
service be any different?
As a snowbird who has
had experience with both the
Canadian and U.S. health
service systems, both offer
excellent care, but under the
Canadian system there is no
monetary decision to make. If
you need health services, you
get them.
No one should be misled by
the claim that under a national
health service system, life
or death decisions would be


made by supposed
els." In fact, in man
it is the health insu
companies who are
"death panels."
No one should b(
the claim of long lii
doctor.
How is Canadian
service funded? It's
in the main through
employer tax on the
paid.
In 2010, the annu
capital cost for heali
in the U.S was $8,23
$4,445 in Canada.

Who heeds
the carrot's cry?
Editor:
A couple of well-intentioned
Thanksgiving-era letters
appeared urging eating veggies
to save the lives of thousands
of turkeys.
Good plan. Except the corre-
spondents have never heard the
shriek of a carrot yanked from
the soil that bore it. And too,
they've missed the yelps of soy-
beans torn from their bushes to
become tofu. Then there's the
bass growl of a potato tugged
from the earth. Actually that's a
russet. Yukon golds emit more
of a yeeping sound.
Worse yet would be the
screams of broccoli and
cabbage being beheaded.
Life in the garden is brief-
and cruel.
This is why there is an
alternate PETA organization.
The evil, dark PETA stands for
People Eating Tasty Animals.
Happy Christmas ham.

Happenings on the Harbor: New projects for 2014


On Nov. 29, roughly
250 Punta Gorda
residents attend-
ed Team Punta Gorda's
2013 annual meeting to
hear about this year's
accomplishments and
the projects planned
for the coming year.
Following the theme
of "Happenings on the
Harbor," the three guest
speakers were optimistic
about the year ahead. All
described projects that
will have a significant
impact on the future of
our community.
City Manager Howard
Kunik described a year
full of promise. He
asked if those in the au-
dience had noticed the
changes taking place on
U.S. 41 including the
new Monty's Restaurant,
Beall's Outlet store,
the Yamaha Store
and Dollar General.
Additionally, housing
starts are up with


81 permits issued this
year. He also stressed
the importance of
partnerships in getting
things done. Punta
Gorda Pathways is com-
plete, and a new bicycle
route system is in place
with four routes for cy-
clists to try. This coming
year the city will focus
on the reverse osmosis
plant, street resurfacing
and downtown flooding
phase II.
Cheney Brothers
Vice President Warren
Newell spoke of the
company's soon-to-be
built food distribution


facility. The operation
will be a $30 million
capital investment
with 350 jobs added
to Charlotte County. It
will be a 375,000 square
foot building with
$10 million in equip-
ment and $30 million
in merchandise. When
you add in the cost
of construction, the
total investment is $80
million. Newell pointed
out that, not only will
it create much-needed
jobs, it will stimulate
business in many other
sectors. Dirt will start
moving in two months
and the facility will be
operational by 2015.
David Dunn-Rankin,
president of Sun Coast
Media Group, was
present representing the
Aquarium Committee.
He gave an update on
the aquarium feasibility
study that is currently
underway and is


intended to determine
whether an aquarium in
downtown Punta Gorda
is financially feasible.
With the help of Mote
Marine Laboratory
in Sarasota, a study
group was formed and
a consultant hired.
The cost of the study is
$75,000. Mote contribut-
ed hundreds of hours of
consulting time and also
contributed to the study
fund. While an aquarium
would be a centerpiece
for our downtown and
would provide an educa-
tion and research facility
on Charlotte Harbor, it
must be a project that
can make enough mon-
ey to be sustainable. The
study will be completed
soon and the results
will be available to the
public.
In the year ahead,
Team Punta Gorda
will focus on both new
projects and continuing


initiatives. Our partner-
ship with the city will
continue as we focus
on our Bicycle Friendly
Communities project.
Together, with city staff,
we'll work on improv-
ing resources, public
education and bicycle/
pedestrian safety.
A new initiative that
we are most excited
about is called "Paint
Your Heart Out Punta
Gorda." Partnering with
Habitat for Humanity
and the City of Punta
Gorda, this project will
use teams of volunteers
to paint and landscape
homes for those in need.
The project planning
kicks off next week and
the work days are to be
scheduled for March and
April.
Projects of this type
which require collab-
oration with a number
of community partners
have impacts which go


well beyond the life of
the initial activity. Once
powerful partnerships
are developed and
results are obtained,
other possibilities
emerge and lead to even
more beneficial out-
comes for the commu-
nity. Joint planning and
effort brings a sense of
ownership, commit-
ment and buy-in from
the various parties who
have worked toward a
common objective.
In order for a citizens'
group like Team Punta
Gorda to be effective,
we always need volun-
teers. We hope you'll
join with us as we con-
tinue our work to make
the Punta Gorda area a
great place to live, work
and play.

CEO of Team Punta
Gorda. Readers may reach

Florida Highway Patrol and Charlotte County


estled just off
Exit 131 on
Interstate 75 is
the home base of the
Florida Highway Patrol
Troop F as well as the
District 1 base of the
Southwest Interagency
Facility for Transporta-
tion. I had the privilege
of visiting and touring
this facility recently
and to say the least I
was impressed not only
with the facility but
with the individuals
who make it all happen
within.
Troop F is responsible
for 10 counties, includ-
ing Charlotte County.
Currently there are six
Florida Highway Patrol
Troopers assigned to
Charlotte County with
the added responsi-
bility of responding to
neighboring counties
when circumstances
warrant the need.
Simply stated, the
role of the Florida
Highway Patrol Troop
F is to keep our
roads safe. In order


to accomplish this
goal, Troop F has an
assortment of basic and
high tech tools at their
disposal to help attain
their goal. First and
foremost, patrolling the
roads and highways of
Charlotte County and
taking the necessary
action to remind all
our drivers to obey the
laws of the road. These
reminders usually
come in the form of a
warning or citation and
in some instances DUI
checkpoints. The use of
in-car and hand-held
radar devices are most
common. An additional
tool is their aviation
unit which patrols over
1-75. The unit can


pinpoint speeds and
radio the information
including vehicle de-
scription from the air to
their ground units who
will perform a safe and
efficient stop before the
violator has any idea
he/she was being moni-
tored. This technology
is virtually undeniable
in a court of law due to
its pinpoint accuracy.
In Charlotte County,
from the Lee County
line all the way to the
Sarasota line, there are
cameras positioned
at one mile intervals
on both North and
Southbound lanes.
These cameras are an
integral part of the 511
Traveler Information
System, which is collo-
cated with the commu-
nications center in Fort
Myers. The cameras
are not fixed units and
can be controlled by
personnel in Southwest
Interagency Facility
for Transportation and
reposition as well as
zoom in or out.


The FHP communi-
cations center looks
like something out of a
Hollywood movie with
one high wall display-
ing flat screen monitors
capable of displaying
any one of the cameras
on the interstate in
Charlotte County. It
provides additional
information to the
troopers responding
to an incident scene
via the communica-
tions center virtually
moments after the
call is received. Along
with approximately
26 cameras, there are
17 message boards
displaying traffic con-
ditions, distance to a
particular exit, estimat-
ed travel time to that
exit as well as Amber
Alerts or any other
information to keep the
drivers informed. They
are changed regularly
depending on the
ever-changing traffic
conditions.
Troop F also inves-
tigates traffic crashes


- you d mn et it in mur paper call 941 20 1010 and asfor
If you donil getl -in your paper, call 941-206-1010 and ask for it


and incidents where
a crash resulted in
a fatality. However,
the Charlotte County
Sheriff's Office and the
Punta Gorda Police
Department can inves-
tigate these incidents
as well if they choose
to do so. In 2012, FHP
investigated 15 traffic
fatalities in Charlotte
County alone.
We're fortunate,
in Charlotte County,
to have the highway
cameras and message
boards. We're one
of three counties in
Southwest Florida to
have this equipment.
The remaining two
interstate counties fall-
ing under the Troop F
jurisdiction are sched-
uled for this upgrade
in the future. You can
learn about the FHP at
www.flhsmv.gov/fhp/
index.html and the


Florida Department of
Transportation's District
One operation center
at www.swiftsunguide.
com/.
Finally, the Florida
Highway Patrol is out
there to keep you safe
on our highways, even
if it's around the curve
ahead or in the sky.
Don't become a statis-
tic. Like most of us, our
troopers hate the extra
paperwork, too.
Special thanks goes
out to Lt. Greg Bueno,
the FHP public infor-
mation officer for Troop
F, for his help with this
article. Job well done.

Students get real world skills


By IAN ROSS
STAFF WRITER

A Charlotte Technical
Center program has ex-
ceptional education stu-
dents Matt Shelton and
Sandrae Williams excited
about entrepreneurship.
Shelton and Williams
worked together in the
classroom designing
rainbow loom bracelets
as part of the Real World
Employability Skills
Program.
"It's awesome,"
Shelton said. "When
we're done, we start
selling the bands."
Real World is a post-
high school program
for ESE (Exceptional
Student Education)
students ages 18 to 22.
The program works with
Bizworld, a nonprofit
that aims to inspire
entrepreneurship by in-
corporating a classroom
business model into the
curriculum.
"By doing school-
based enterprises,
we're fostering their
employability skills,"
said instructor Nancy
Bieberdorf.
The 10 students in
Shelton's class named
their business Real
World Corporation, and
applied for positions
within the business
with resumes and job
interviews. Students are
held accountable, and
use punch cards at the
beginning and end of
every class.


Students Zack Foust and Troy Fultz, students in the Real World Employability Skills Program at
the Charlotte Technical Center, prepare Christmas cards and decorations for sale. Profits will go to
the class' business, Real World Corporation.


Shelton, a vice pres-
ident of finance, said
so far he's made $47 in
bracelet sales, which
goes back into the
business.
If the business is
profitable at the end of
the year, the students get
to decide how to spend
the money.
According to
Bieberdorf, the class cur-
rently has three major
projects students are
working on. While some
students work on the
rainbow loom bracelets,
others work together
making Christmas cards,


which also will be sold.
In January, Bieberdorf
hopes to have students
raising money through
a community garden
at Port Charlotte High
School, which will
provide produce for
the culinary programs
at both PCHS and the
Technical Center.
The Real World
program also gets
students working in the
community. Students
volunteer with commu-
nity partners such as
Publix, Goodwill and
St. Vincent de Paul to
learn career skills and


professionalism.
Marty Lach, another
instructor in the pro-
gram, said "when they
go out there they turn
into real professionals.
... I'm very proud of
them."
Bieberdorf said the
program is always
actively seeking com-
munity partners with
volunteer positions the
students can learn from.
"We're looking for win-
win partnerships where
someone would like to
have students to work
at entry level positions,"
said Bieberdorf. "The


Real World Employability Skills Program student Matt Shelton
models one of the rainbow bracelets he and his classmates
are working on. The bracelets will be sold to profit the class'
business, Real World Corporation.


biggest thing for em-
ployers to understand is
that (the students) are
volunteers they don't
have to hire them."
Some students, like
Shelton, do go on to
apply for jobs with the
employers if they feel
like there's a good fit.
Shelton's photo of the
group's Publix trip is
pinned to the classroom
bulletin board, and he
said he plans to apply
for a position there.

The Real World Employability
Skills Program instructors

with community businesses
interested in having volun-
teers to work in entry level
positions. Community groups

Report: Child severely injured under Venice man's care


By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER

SARASOTA COUNTY
-A Venice man was
charged with aggra-
vated child abuse on
Thanksgiving in con-
nection with the early
November beating of a
15-month-old boy that
caused severe brain and
spinal injuries, accord-
ing to the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office.
Caleb Wagner, 27,
of the 700 block of
Groveland Ave., turned
himself in last week after
a warrant was issued for
his arrest, following an
investigation that lasted


several weeks.
According to a report,
the toddler had been
under Wagner's care on
the evening
0 ofNov. 11,
When he
t l sustained
Sa the injuries,
..lbut Wagner
would later
tell both
WAmE the boy's
WAGNER mother and
the authorities the child
was hurt when he fell
off the couch and hit his
head on the living room
table.
But, as the toddler
fell unconscious that
same evening and was


later airlifted to All
Children's Hospital in St.
Petersburg, it became
apparent to investigators
his injuries were not
consistent with Wagner's
story, the report states.
Wagner told authori-
ties he was outside the
victim's home when he
heard a "thud" from
inside and found the
child between the couch
and the wooden living
room coffee table.
The boy had a bruised
face and cut on his lip,
but otherwise seemed
in good health, Wagner
told authorities. Later
that evening he went to
change the child's diaper


and the boy's body went
limp, prompting Wagner
to run next door to ask
for his friend's help.
When the friend
arrived, he found the
toddler "stiff, his eyes
rolled back in his head"
and not breathing, the
report states. The child
then started breathing
again, but emergency
personnel were called
and transported the
child to St. Petersburg
for emergency treat-
ment. The victim also
suffered seizure-like
symptoms en route to
the hospital, the report
states.
Doctors at All


Children's told author-
ities that the victim's
injuries were too severe
to be tied to falling off
a couch. The report
states that the boy had
surgery to relieve brain
bleeding, had severe
bruising to both ears,
retinal hemorrhaging
and a spinal fracture, the
report states.
Doctors also told
authorities the child's
injuries were consistent
with being thrown
against another surface
with "high-force im-
pact," the report states.
Wagner remains at
the Sarasota County Jail
on $250,000 bond. The


child's medical status is
unknown, but according
to SCSO spokeswoman
Wendy Rose, he remains
hospitalized.
Wagner was addition-
ally charged with one
count of child neglect
and three counts of
aggravated assault with
a deadly weapon in an
unrelated incident on
Nov. 13, according to
court records. It was a
road rage incident in
which Wagner allegedly
pulled out a handgun on
a motorcyclist. He was
out on $100,000 bond
in connection with that
incident.

A Christmas Odyssey rings in chorales' 2


By BARBARA
BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
This holiday season,
the Charlotte Chorale
will ring in its 25th
year with a concert, A
Christmas Odyssey, on
Dec. 14 at 4 p.m. at the
Center for Performing
Arts in Punta Gorda.
The concert will also
herald the premiere
appearance of William
Dederer, the group's new
artistic director.
Dederer has master's
and doctoral degrees
from the University of
Michigan at Ann Arbor.
His 41-year musical
career has included
13 years as professor
of music at the State
University of New York at
Fredonia, 16 years at the
Boston Conservatory as
dean and vice president
for Academic Affairs,
as well as dean of the
Conservatory of Music


at Capital University in
Columbus, Ohio.
He has also personally
performed on the trum-
pet for the Philadelphia
Orchestra, the
Pittsburgh Symphony
and the Chicago Ballet.
Meanwhile, he directed
a variety of choirs for
20 years.
In his new role as
artistic director of the
Charlotte Chorale,
Dederer succeeded
former director R. Bruce
MacGregor, who retired
at the end of last season.
Dederer began working
with the chorale as
assistant director one
year prior to enable him
to transition smoothly
into the director's role.
He has held auditions to
expand and add to the
talented musicians of
the chorale as the group
began its 25th year.
It was 1989 when
MacGregor started the


chorale with a group
of 28 gifted vocal
musicians. MacGregor
saw a need within the
community for elite,
highly talented singers
to tackle challenging
music and perform it
for the community. The
chorale grew through
the years and now
includes approximately
70 singers, depending on
the season.
"I am very excited
about working with this
talented group of singers
and ... sharing with them
the joy of making music,
and to share that joy
with the community,"
Dederer said.
Tickets for A Christ-
mas Odyssey are $20
for adults and $10 for
students. They can be
purchased through any
chorale member or by
calling 941-204-0033.
Visa, MasterCard and
Discover are accepted.

Butterflies' beauty is something to behold


By BILL DUNSON
SPECIAL TO THE SUN

So much of our ability
to learn about nature
is due to perception.
Thus, the large showy
butterflies receive a lot of
attention because they
are obvious.
On a recent walk at
Wildflower Preserve,
I certainly noticed
some very spectacular
members of a mimicry
complex involving the
monarch, the queen,
the viceroy and the Gulf
fritillary.
The monarch and
queen feed on milkweeds
as caterpillars and retain
toxins as adults that
protect them. The Gulf
fritillary obtains toxins
from passionvines, and
the viceroy from willow.
All are bright reddish
orange and black and
thus advertise their
toxicity to predators and
benefit from this joint
resemblance.
The monarch is proba-
bly the most recognized
butterfly by the general
public, although few
understand about the
Muellerian mimicry
complex.
In contrast, there are
large numbers of much
smaller butterflies that
fly around us virtually
unnoticed. I include
myself in the mass of
people who have ignored
these tiny but beautiful
butterflies. But I have
decided to rectify this
ignorance by photo-
graphing and identifying
these little jewels.
However the first
problem is seeing
them in enough detail,
so you need either
some close-focusing
binoculars or a good
camera. I have recently
photographed three
of the most common


Gulf fritillary male at Wildlower.


Little sulphur butterfly.
marvelous mites, the
Cassius blue, the little
sulphur and the ful-
vous hairstreak. This
hairstreak is especially
interesting since it is a
Caribbean species that
became established in
the United States, only
since its food plant,
Brazilian pepper, invad-
ed Florida.
Each of these has a
number of very similar
relatives that complicate
the identification, so a
good book such as "A
Swift Guide to Butterflies
of North America" by J.
Glassberg is essential.
The presence of so


many very similar spe-
cies is a wonderful illus-
tration of the evolution
of sibling species from
one original ancestor.
So once your head
is spinning with the
differential diagnosis of
these butterflies and you
begin to master them,
turn your attention to
the myriad of colorful
dragonflies that swirl
around.
Just to give one spec-
tacular example, con-
sider this male roseate
skimmer that is common
atWildflower; he proves
that "pretty in pink" does
not just apply to females!

BOSTON Doctors are reporting
an epidemic of twins. Nearly half
of all babies bom with advanced
fertility help are multiple births, new
federal numbers show.
In the five years since the
"Octomom" case, big multiple births
have gone way down but the twin
rate has barely budged. Twins aren't
always twice as nice; they have much
higher risks of prematurity and
serious health problems.
Now fertility experts are pushing
a new goal: One. A growing number


of couples are attempting pregnancy
with just a single embryo, helped by
new ways to pick the ones most likely
to succeed. New guidelines urge
doctors to stress this approach.
Abigail and Ken Ernst of Oldwick,
N.J., did this to conceive Lucy, a
daughter bom in September. Using '
one embryo at a time "just seemed
the most normal, the most natural
way" to conceive and avoid a high-

NTSB: Train going too fast at


curve before derailment


YONKERS, N.Y (AP)
- A commuter train
that derailed over the
weekend, killing four
passengers, was hurtling
at 82 mph as it entered a
30 mph curve, a federal
investigator said Monday.
But whether the wreck
was the result of human
error or mechanical
trouble was unclear, he
said.
Safety experts said the
tragedy might have been
prevented if Metro-North
Railroad had installed
automated crash-avoid-
ance technology that
safety authorities have
been urging for decades.
The locomotive's speed
was extracted from the
train's two data recorders
after the Sunday morning
accident, which hap-
pened in the Bronx along
a bend so sharp that the
speed limit drops from
70 mph to 30 mph.
Asked why the train
was going so fast,
National Transportation
Safety Board member
Earl Weener said: "That's
the question we need to
answer."
Weener would not
disclose what the
engineer operating the
train told investigators,
and he said results of
drug and alcohol tests
were not yet available.
Investigators are also

Federal authorities began righting the cars Monday morning as they started an exhaustive

derail, killing four people and injuring more than 60 others.


examining the engineer's
cellphone, apparently to
determine whether he
was distracted.
"When I heard about
the speed, I gulped," said
Sen. Charles Schumer,
D-N.Y.
The engineer, William
Rockefeller, was injured
and "is totally trau-
matized by everything
that has happened,"
said Anthony Bottalico,
executive director of the
rail employees union.
He said Rockefeller,
46, was cooperating fully


with investigators.
"He's a sincere human
being with an impecca-
ble record that I know of.
He's diligent and com-
petent," Bottalico said.
Rockefeller has been an
engineer for about 11
years and a Metro-North
employee for about 20,
he said.
Weener sketched a
scenario that suggested
that the throttle was let
up and the brakes were
fully applied way too late
to stave off disaster.
He said the throttle


went to idle six seconds
before the derailed train
came to a complete stop
- "very late in the game"
for a train going that
fast and the brakes
were fully engaged five
seconds before the train
stopped.
It takes about a mile
for a train going 70 mph
to stop, according
to Steve Ditmeyer, a
former Federal Railroad
Administration official
who now teaches
at Michigan State
University.


Fast-food strikes aim at o100 US cities


NEWYORK (AP) -
Fast-food workers in
about 100 cities will walk
off the job on Thursday,
organizers say, which
would mark the largest
effort yet in a push for
higher pay.
The actions are intend-
ed to build on a campaign
that began about a year
ago to call attention to
the difficulties of living
on the federal minimum
wage of $7.25 an hour, or
about $15,000 a year for a
full-time employee.
The protests are part
of a movement by labor
unions, Democrats and
other worker advocacy
groups to raise pay in
low-wage sectors. Last
month, President Barack
Obama said he would
back a Senate measure to
raise the federal minimum
wage to $10.10 an hour.
Protesters are calling
for $15 an hour, although
many see the figure as a
rallying point rather than
a near-term possibility.
It's not clear how large
the turnout will be at
any given location, or
whether the walkouts
will be enough to disrupt
operations. Similar
actions this summer had
varying results, with some
restaurants unable to
serve customers and oth-
ers seemingly unaffected.
The National Restaurant
Association, an industry
lobbying group, called

the demonstrations a
"campaign engineered by
national labor groups,"
and said the vast majority
of participants were union
protesters rather than
workers.
The group added that
past demonstrations
"have fallen well short
of their purported
numbers."
Kendall Fells, a New
York City-based organizer
for Fast Food Forward,
said demonstrations are
planned for 100 cities, in
addition to the 100 cities
where workers will strike.


He said plans started
coming together shortly
after the one-day actions
in about 60 cities this
summer.
"They understand
they're not going to win
from a one-day strike,"
Fells said of workers.
Still, organizers face an
uphill battle in reshaping
an industry that com-
petes aggressively on low
prices, a practice that has
intensified as companies
including McDonald's
Corp., Burger King
Worldwide Inc. and Yum
Brands Inc., which owns


KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco
Bell, face growing compe-
tition and slow growth in
the weak economy.
Fast-food workers are
also seen as difficult
to unionize, given the
industry's high turnover
rates. But the Service
Employees International
Union, which represents
more than 2 million
workers in health care,
janitorial and other
industries, has been
providing organizational
and financial support to
the push for higher pay
over the past year.


Passengers on flight told to get TB test


(La Times) Dozens
of passengers on a week-
end US Airways Express
flight have been told to
get tuberculosis tests
and possible vaccina-
tions after a passenger
in a face mask was
taken off of the plane in
Phoenix.
The Maricopa County
Department of Public
Health was still conduct-
ing tests to determine if
the passenger was ill, a
spokesperson told the
Los Angeles Times on
Monday. But passengers
told reporters over the
weekend they were
asked to check with
their doctors about


precautions relating to
tuberculosis exposure.
Flight 2846, carrying
more than 70 people,
landed at Sky Harbor
International Airport
from Austin, Texas, just
before 5 p.m. Saturday.
Passengers said they
were not allowed to get
off the plane right away.
Rather, paramedics and
police officers boarded,
put a medical face mask
on a man and then
escorted him off the
plane.
"As we were taxiing, a
stewardess came down
the aisle," passenger
Dean Davidson told
KNXV-TV. "She had a


mask and she instructed
the gentleman to put a
mask on."
"The fireman said he
has tuberculosis, he's
contagious, you must
see your physicians
immediately and you
must be tested in three
months' time," Davidson
said.
Bill McGlashen of US
Airways told reporters
that the passenger
had been cleared to fly
when he boarded in
Austin, but his status
was changed to "no-fly"
while the plane was in
the air.
"The warning that
came from the CDC did


not occur until after the
flight had departed so
the passenger did not
have a red flag in their
reservation system or
any warning there,"
McGlashen said.
"Passengers were
provided some infor-
mation about what
had occurred. And we
are following up the
situation with the CDC
and monitoring it with
them," McGlashen said.
Local officials were
notified of the case and
were testing to see if the
passenger does have
tuberculosis, a conta-
gious air-borne disease,
caused by a bacterium.

Hubble Telescope
best shot at
tracking comet

CAPE CANAVERAL (AP)
- It's all up to Hubble.
NASA said Monday
that the Hubble Space
Telescope is the best bet
for figuring out whether
Comet ISON disintegrat-
ed during its brush with
the sun last week.
A pair of solar obser-
vatories saw something
emerge from around the
sun following ISON's
close approach on
Thanksgiving Day. But
scientists don't know
whether the spot of light
was merely the comet's
shattered remains or
what's left of its icy
nucleus. Either way, by
now, they say it may be
just dust.
Over the coming week
or two, scientists will
keep a lookout for any
brightening, which could
indicate what, if anything
is left. Hubble should
put the matter to rest in
mid-December, when the
comet's remains are far
enough from the sun for
safe viewing.

Hilton could raise
$2.4B, 1 of year's
biggest IPOs

NEWYORK (AP)
- Hilton Worldwide
Holdings Inc. said
Monday that it could
raise as much as $2.37
billion, making it one of
the year's biggest IPOs.
The hotel operator
said in a regulatory
filing that the offering
of 112.8 million shares
is expected to price
between $18 and $21
each. Hilton is offering
about 64.1 million shares,
and selling shareholders
are offering 48.7 million
shares. Selling additional
shares to banks could put
the IPO's proceeds at as
much as $2.72 billion.
The initial public of-
fering comes as the hotel
industry has started to
recover over the past two
years from its battering
during the recession and
as the IPO market heats
up. Roughly 200 com-
panies have gone public
in 2013 as markets hit
record highs.
If it prices above the
middle of the expected
range, Hilton will have
the second- or third-larg-
est IPO this year.

Justices to consider medical marijuana on ballot


TALLAHASSEE (Cox
Newspapers) In a legal
battle whose social and
political shadings have
drawn an all-star cast of
combatants, the Florida
Supreme Court this week
will consider a measure
asking voters to allow
doctors to prescribe
marijuana for a range of
illnesses.
Much of Florida's
Republican leadership
is being joined by the
Florida Chamber of
Commerce, the state's
medical association
and law enforcement
organizations in fighting
the proposed 2014 ballot
measure.
On the opposite side,
leading Democratic
donor John Morgan, an
Orlando trial lawyer close
to former Gov. Charlie
Crist, is bankrolling


the campaign. Crist,
previously a Republican
while governor, is now
running for the office as
a Democrat.
A former Democratic
House speaker, Jon
Mills of Gainesville, will
make the campaign's
case before justices on
Thursday.
While the politics of
the fight are viewed
as closely entwined in
next year's governor's
race, House SpeakerWill
Weatherford, R-Wesley
Chapel, said his oppo-
sition stems only from
concerns about how
the ballot proposal is
constructed.
"It's misleading to
voters, flawed and
doesn't really tell you just
how pervasive marijuana
would be in this state,"
Weatherford told The


Palm Beach Post. "If
this were approved, it
would be a nightmare
for the Legislature to
implement."
Mills, however, said
opponents, in arguments
spanning more than
100 pages of filings in
the case, have taken the
misguided approach of
attacking the concept
of legalizing medical
marijuana.
"They're certainly free
to argue that it's a terrible
idea," Mills said. "But
that's not the test that
justices will put to the
amendment."
Instead, justices are
expected to confine their
focus to determining
whether the proposed
language of the citizens'
initiative meets constitu-
tional standards.
If justices rule that the

that Gaetz's dog bit him
last May. The lawsuit
contends the dog bite left
Kent in pain, disfigured
and with injuries that
ultimately forced him
to withdraw from law

the reason he quit the
University of Michigan
is that the treatment has
forced him to take antibi-

problems.

Stocks fall on disappointing



Thanksgiving sales


NEWYORK(AP) -The
final month of a stellar
year for stocks began with
a thud.
All three major indexes
closed lower Monday,
the first day of trading
in December. Investors
sold shares on signs
that American shoppers
- that seemingly inex-
haustible fuel of global
economic growth may
hold tight to their cash
this holiday season.
Shoppers turned out in
record numbers over the
four-day Thanksgiving
weekend, but plunked
down less cash than
they did last year. It
was the first decline in
Thanksgiving weekend


spending since a retail
trade group began track-
ing it in 2006.
Investors reacted by
selling all types of retailer
stocks, from department
stores to specialty chains.
J.C. Penney, Macy's and
Target fell about 2 percent
each. Urban Outfitters
dropped nearly 4 percent.
"This holiday season
is not going to be a
gangbuster," said Lindsey
Piegza, chief economist
of Sterne Agee. "Retailers
are bracing for declining
activity from now to the
beginning of the year."
One big exception to
the retailer doldrums was
Ebay, which rose
1.6 percent thanks to signs


of strong sales from its
online auctions.
The Dow Jones indus-
trial average has surged
22 percent this year and,
if history holds, will add
to that gain this month.
The Dow has risen in
December in three out
of every four years going
back to 1950, according
to the Stock Trader's
Almanac. The average
gain: 1.7 percent.
On Monday, the Dow
fell 77.64 points, or 0.5
percent, to 16,008.77. The
Standard & Poor's 500 in-
dex dropped 4.91 points,
or 0.3 percent, to 1,800.90.
The Nasdaq composite
fell 14.63 points, or 0.4
percent, to 4,045.26.

The economy and the future


ear Mr. Berko:
Why has the stock
market continued
to make new highs while
unemployment remains
high? Why has unem-
ployment remained high
when the Federal Reserve
adds $85 billion a month
to the economy? And why
has the gross domestic
product stayed flat with
all this new money in the
economy? FL, Cleve-
land
Dear FL It suffices to say
the market will continue
rising as long as the Obama
administration compels the
Fed to dump its $85 billion
monthly stimulus into the
big banks' pockets. The
administration still believes
that this avalanche of free
money will encourage
banks to lend cheaply to
businesses, which ideally
use that cheap money to
employ more workers to
produce more products for
the consumer, whose subse-
quent purchases ideally
would improve the GDP
Well, something hap-
pened on the road to
Grandmother's house,
because those trillions of
dollars of Fed largesse never
reached the consumer's
pocket. Banks have issued
fewer and fewer loans, and
credit hasn't gotten cheaper.
Investment bankers have
been pocketing all the cash,
and little has been invested
to create jobs. Rather, Wall
Street's brokerages and
hedge funds have used
the stimulus to trade the
market, to improve balance
sheets, to subsidize iffy busi-
ness deals for their pals and
to pay off underwater loans.
And in the process, the Dow
Jones industrial average has
leapt to new highs. Cheap
money has been used to
facilitate mergers, foster
acquisitions to replace
high-interest debt with low-
er-interest debt, repurchase
corporate stock, and acquire
apartments, office buildings


and industrial real estate. A
pittance has been used to
create jobs, and the stock
market has continued to
record highs.
Goldman Sachs, Merrill
Lynch and JPMorgan Chase
have used stimulus money
to create initial public
offerings, finance leveraged
buyouts, and purchase
distressed resources and
income-producing assets
rather than expand employ-
ment. So the market has
risen to new levels, and that
rising market, fueled byWall
Street's cupidity, inexorably
has spewed more dollars
into the velvet purses of the
1 percent of Americans who
currently own 95 percent
of the country's wealth.
Nobody at the Fed seems
to care that our infrastruc-
ture is in shambles. Our
bridges are crumbling; our
seaports and airports need
significant upgrading; our
nation's water and sewer
systems need extensive
repair; our rivers and lakes
must be sanitized; our
hospitals, libraries, schools
and major highways require
extensive maintenance; and
our public transportation
systems are inadequate.
That is where those trillions
should have been allocated.
Shovel-ready jobs would
quickly increase employ-
ment and put hundreds
of billions in middle-class
pockets to purchase goods
and services from tens
of thousands of small
neighborhood business-
es. The stimulus hasn't
reached Joe the Plumber,
Mrs. Grabowski, Uncle
Cleve, Sally Grandma or


the Sanchez family. And
except for their new cars
and recently purchased
toys (iPads, smartphones,
TVs, etc., bought with
borrowed money),
Americans are a ruck
stuck in the muck. Look
about your city. Note the
recently closed restau-
rants, empty car lots,
strip center vacancies,
shuttered neighborhood
businesses, empty office
buildings and unoccupied
homes. The consumer
has been porked. His
income is lower today
than it was before the
recession began; he has
borrowed the limit from
his 401(k) plan; his debt
reached record levels this
year; Visa and MasterCard
are his friends; and he
realizes, sadly, that he has
diminishing control over
his family's future.
The middle class is
vanishing and becoming
increasingly dependent
on government assistance
(Google "Cloward-Piven
strategy"), which some
believe is the government's
goal. The new normal for
government is to control as
many resources as possible
and covetously increase
its size as more resources
(health care, education,
workplace environment,
wages, gun control, food
programs, housing, bank-
ing, pensions, mineral
rights, etc.) come under
its dominance. So with
a growing number of re-
sources under control, the
government can allocate
them to more Americans,
who become increasingly
dependent upon its
dominion. What a won-
derfully simple concept.
Relieved of our responsi-
bilities, we can cheerfully
look toward government
for our paternal care and
happiness. Everyone votes
for Santa Claus.

Manufacturing
speeds up
in Britain
LONDON (Bloomberg)
- British manufacturing
expanded more than
forecast in November,
indicating the recovery is
maintaining its momen-
tum in the year's final
quarter.
A gauge of factory
activity increased to
58.4, the highest since
February 2011, from a
revised 56.5 in October,
Markit Economics said
in a report in London
Monday. That exceeded
the median estimate of 30
economists for a reading
of 56.1. The report also
showed that demand and
payrolls rose last month.
The Bank of England
raised its forecasts last
month and said the
recovery has "taken hold"
after economic growth
accelerated to 0.8 percent
in the third quarter. That's
providing an upbeat
backdrop for Chancellor
of the Exchequer George
Osborne as he prepares
to deliver new projections
and fiscal plans on Dec. 5.

Lebanese army
taking over
in Tripoli
TRIPOLI, Lebanon
(AP) The government
authorized the army
Monday to take charge of
security in Lebanon's sec-
ond-largest city of Tripoli
for six months following
deadly sectarian clashes
by rival sides stemming
from the civil war in
neighboring Syria.
Many fear that the
violence in Tripoli only
18 miles from the Syrian
border could tip the
rest of Lebanon back
toward chaos. At least 12
people were killed and
more than 100 wounded
in the latest fighting that
broke out Saturday.
The decision by
caretaker Prime Minister
Najib Mikati after a
high-level security meet-
ing at the presidential
palace is meant to allay
fears that the fighting was
spreading out of control
in the northern port city.
But the army is weak and
has been largely unable
to stop the violence.
Dozens of soldiers have
been killed and wounded
in Tripoli this year, often
caught in the crossfire
between rival gunmen.

Shanghai puts
out polluted-air
warning
SHANGHAI
(Bloomberg) Shanghai
warned children and the
elderly to stay indoors
as the level of the most
harmful pollutants
exceeded more than 10
times the level deemed
safe by the World Health
Organization.
The air pollution index
in the nation's commer-
cial hub exceeded 300 as
of 1:41 p.m., placing it in
the "severe" range and the
highest of six levels, the
Shanghai Environmental
Monitoring Center said
on its website Monday.
PM2.5 pollutants par-
ticles smaller than 2.5
microns in diameter that
pose the biggest health
risk- reached 288.9,
more than 10 times the
WHO threshold, before
falling to 211.5.
Heavy pollution may
undermine Shanghai's
plans to attract foreign
investment and multina-
tional firms, as the city
implements a free-trade
zone as part of a broader
goal to become a global
financial and logistics
center by 2020.

KIEV Ukraine (AP)
- Facing huge anti-gov-
ernment demonstrations
after spurning a deal with
the European Union,
Ukraine's embattled
president sought Monday
to quell public anger by
moving to renew talks
with Brussels.
The opposition,
meanwhile, scrambled
to secure enough votes
in parliament to oust the
Cabinet and try to force
an early presidential
election, in the biggest
unrest in the country
since the 2004 Orange
Revolution.
President Viktor
Yanukovych struggled
to reaffirm his grip on
power as thousands of
demonstrators besieged
government buildings in
Kiev, his party suffered
defections and three
cities in the west of the
country openly defied
the central government.
The protests were
sparked by Yanukovych's
decision to ditch the
political association and
free trade pact with the
EU, followed by a violent
dispersal of a small


Protestors wave flags rallying at the central Indepeni
Square in Kiev, Ukraine, Monday. Hundreds of Ukraii
protesters have blocked entrances to the government
and called for the ouster of the prime minister and I

over the weekend.
Russian President
Vladimir Putin, who
strongly opposed the
EU deal, denounced the
opposition protests in
Kiev as "pogroms."
On Monday,
Yanukovych called
European Commission
President Jose Manuel
Barroso and asked to
renew negotiations on
signing the association
agreement. He also said
in an interview with
Ukraine's main television


channels that h

China launches 'Jade Rabbit' rover to moon


BEIJING (Washington Post)
- China took a significant step
toward eventually landing a per-
son on the moon with Monday's
successful launch of a rocket
carrying its first moon rover, the
"Jade Rabbit."
The rocket blasted off from
southwestern China at 1:30 a.m.
Monday, a day after India's maid-
en Mars orbiter left Earth's orbit
on its journey to the red planet, in
what some observers characterize
as Asia's new space race.
China's rocket is expected to
deposit the rover in the right
eye of the "Man in the Moon"
in mid-December, specifically
targeting a large volcanic crater
known as the Sinus Iridum or
Bay of Rainbows, thought to be
relatively free of large rocks.
If successful, China will be the
third country to achieve a soft land-
ing on the moon, after the United
States and Russia. The last soft land-
ing on the moon was the unmanned
Soviet Luna 24 rover, which collected
soil samples in 1976.
"We will strive for our space
dream as part of the Chinese
dream of national rejuvenation,"
said Zhang Zhenshong, director
of the Xichang Satellite Launch
Center, according to the Xinhua
state news agency.
Zhang was echoing the na-
tionalist rhetoric of President
Xi Jinping, who has made the


"Chinese dream" one of his key
motifs.
The rover, called "Yutu" in
Chinese, is named after a Chinese
myth about a woman named
Change who swallowed magic
pills and took her pet rabbit to
the moon, where she has been
living as a goddess ever since.
The rover will set up a telescope
on the moon for the first time,
survey the moon's geological
structure and look for natural re-
sources through a radar installed
on the rover, Xinhua reported.
Ultimately, China aims to follow
the United States by landing a
man on the moon although it
has yet to set a specific target
date for that mission and to
continue toward Mars.
"China's space exploration
will not stop at the moon," Sun
Huixian, a senior engineer in the
space program, told Xinhua. "Our
target is deep space."
India, Japan and Russia are also
giving serious thought to manned
missions to the moon sometime
in the 2020s.
Chinese scientists and experts
frame the space program partially
in terms of the nation's constant
quest for energy and raw mate-
rials, talking about helium-3 and
solar power as potential energy
sources on the moon, as well
as its reserves of titanium, rare
earths, uranium and thorite.


"Now nobody is exploiting the
resources because the economic
costs are too high," Ouyang
Ziyuan of the Chinese Academy
of Science told Xinhua. "This is
a possibility in the future, and
humans should know what is
there on the moon."
Chinese officials denied they
were in competition with India or
other nations and have offered to
cooperate with other countries.
The U.S. Congress has banned
NASA from using federal funds to
cooperate with China or Chinese
companies since 2011.
Some U.S. scientists say the
Chinese mission is not likely
to add much to what is already
known about the moon. In a re-
cent article in Aerospace America
magazine, unidentified U.S.
scientists said the Chinese rover
design was similar to NASAs Mars
Exploration Rover and that, apart
from the Chinese radar system,
many instruments were similar
to those carried by previous U.S.
and Russian space missions.
However, the mission does
represent a breakthrough in
China's space program, and it
shows the country is making
progress toward landing a person
on the moon. Buzz Aldrin, the
second man to walk on the moon,
has urged NASA to cooperate with
China, perhaps collaborating one
day to land a person on Mars.

March 3B rocket carrying the Chang'e-3 lunar probe blasts off

for China to send a spacecraft to soft land on the surface of an
extraterrestrial body.


Nutrition standards debated for food stamp program


Washington (San
Francisco Chronicle) -
Food stamps, the nation's
premier poverty program,
can buy just about
anything that passes for
edible on a supermarket
shelf: chips, soft drinks,
candy and all the other
items known in common
parlance as junk food.
This fact, in tandem
with epidemic obesity
that afflicts the poor and
racial minorities more than
other Americans, lurks


beneath the brawl dividing
Congress over whether
to slash funding for the
Supplemental Nutrition
Assistance Program.
Having quadrupled since
2001 to almost $78 billion
a year, the program feeds
1 in 7 Americans. House
Republicans have passed
legislation that would cut
$39 billion over a decade,
which Democrats are trying
to block in negotiations
over the farm bill.
What few on either side


want to touch are the con-
clusions of a report last year
by Oakland public health
activist Michele Simon,
who called food stamps the
"the largest, most over-
looked corporate subsidy
in the farm bill" and urged
Congress to enact nutrition
standards that would limit
purchases of unhealthy
food with government
assistance.
Her report set off a
backlash among advocates
for the poor that proved


so divisive that many pub-
lic-health groups refused
to take a position on the
issue. Some groups do
not want even to discuss
nutrition standards as they
struggle to stave off budget
cuts in the food stamp
program, known as SNAP
nationally and CalFresh in
California.
"It's a very uncomfort-
able debate," said Michael
Dimock, president of Roots
of Change, a Bay Area
group that advocates for


sustainable and local agri-
culture. "People are forced
into making purchases of
food with little money, and
it feels like another injustice
for them to be told what
they can or cannot buy. At
the same time, logically
speaking, it's a very difficult
situation for us as a nation
to be supplementing peo-
ple's purchase of unhealthy
food."
The issue also divides
the right. The food industry
fiercely opposes nutrition


standards.
House Republicans
adopted almost the entire
food stamp plank of the
conservative Heritage
Foundation -work re-
quirements for able-bodied
adults, drug testing and big
funding cuts except for a
ban on junk food.
Almost 70 percent of
adult Americans and 1 in
3 children are overweight,
according to the Centers
for Disease Control and
Prevention.

* COLLEGE FOOTBALL: BCS



Up in arms already over the BCS


By JIM LITKE
ASSOCIATED PRESS
he just-ended
rivalry week ranks
among the best that
college football has seen
in forever. Now comes the
hangover.
Welcome to whining
week, that time of year
when everybody from the
university president to the
second-string long snap-
per for the program most
likely to be spurned by
the Bowl Championship
Series tries his hand at
lobbying.
First in line was Auburn
athletic director Jay
Jacobs, whose 11-1 Tigers
were ranked No. 3 Sunday
night in the next-to-last
BCS standings of the
season, behind unbeatens
Florida State and Ohio
State, respectively. Jacobs
didn't even wait to see
the official result; he
knew what was coming.

Bucs'


listless


offense


sputters

By FRED GOODALL
ASSOCIATED PRESS
TAMPA The growing
pains of a rookie quar-
terback are only partially
responsible for what's
ailing the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers on offense.
Mike Glennon's first
multiple turnover game
in eight weeks certainly
didn't help the team's
chances during a lopsided
loss to Carolina that
stopped a three-game
winning streak, however
coach Greg Schiano noted
Sunday that the lack of a
consistent running game
and an inability score
touchdowns instead of
settling for field goals also
continue to undermine
the Bucs (3-9).
Despite winning three
of four following an 0-8
start, Sunday's 27-6 loss to
Panthers assures Tampa
Bay of finishing with a
losing record for the third
straight year.
The Bucs, who haven't
made the playoffs since
2007, have posted their
two lowest yardage totals
of the year the past
two weeks 229 in a
victory over Detroit and
a season-low 206 against
the Panthers, who have
the NFL's No. 1 defense.

And so he began howling
some 24 hours earlier,
just moments after Tigers'
running back Chris Davis
put his foot down in
the end zone Saturday
night to seal the Tigers'
wacky upset over mighty
Alabama.
Right after the game,
Jacobs actually said "it
would be a disservice to
the nation" if Auburn were
to win next weekend's
Southeastern Conference
title against No. 5 Missouri
and still be denied a
chance to play for the
national championship at
the Rose Bowl on Jan. 6.
Given a night to sleep on
it, he doubled down.
"This is inarguable,"
Jacobs said Sunday. "I

frankly, un-American for
us not to get a chance to

After Sumaljag's second goal

but we did pretty well overall."
North Port coach Gerard
Gregoire agreed with his player's
initial assessment.
"Not so good," Gregoire said
when asked how he felt his team
played. "We ran too much with
the ball. We should have played
the ball more, particularly on a
big field like this you need to play
the ball more."
Sumaljag, who has eight goals
this season, scored his first of the


perspective."
That was before
Alabama fell to Auburn,
making room for the
Seminoles to earn their
first No. 1 ranking since
2000.

"No. 1 has nothing to
do with it. What we have
to do is play well against
Duke," coach Jimbo
Fisher said. "That's our
goal. We aren't worried
about where we're ranked,
what we're doing, it'll all

STORRS, Conn.-
Shabazz Napier hit a
jumper from the free
throw line as time
expired to keep No. 12
Connecticut undefeated
with a 65-64 victory over
No. 15 Florida on Monday
night.
Napier, limping on a
left ankle he hurt during
a four-point play with 33
seconds left, escaped a
trap around 30 feet from
the basket and got off a
wild shot that missed but
was tipped blindly back by
DeAndre Daniels. Napier
grabbed the ball and let go
a left-handed jumper that
went through as the horn
sounded and set off a
deafening cheer from the
sellout crowd of 10,167 at
Gampel Pavilion.
Napier finished with 26
points on 9-of-15 shooting
including making 5 of 8
from 3-point range.
The Huskies (8-0) and

Running takes Gowans



to new experiences


Tough Mudder

the latest race

for area woman

By BARBARA BOXLEITNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Martha Gowans isn't
sure which direction
running will lead her.
But she doesn't hesitate
to go off course.
At the urging of friends,
the Lake Suzy resident
starting competing
in running events in
January. She had been
working out at the gym,
especially on the ellip-
tical. "Running's a lot
harder than walking," the
35-year-old said with a
laugh.
Gowans said she
usually runs three to
five miles a day, though
she has been going
longer distances because
she's training for a half
marathon.
She trains with a team
of athletes from The


Foot Landing, the Punta
Gorda store specializing
in running and walking
products. The store offers
a 21/2- or 3-mile walk or
run Wednesday nights, so
she runs in that. She bikes
and swims with a group
on Thursday.
She started tackling
adventure runs during
the spring. Gowans said
she recently completed
a Tough Mudder course
of about 13 miles in 3 1/2
hours. "The obstacles are
hard," she said. "Some
obstacles are pretty
scary."
The last obstacle of that
race required participants
to navigate through a
series of suspended
electrical shocks, she
said. "You don't know
which ones are charged,"
said Gowans, who indeed
received a shock. "They're
everywhere."
The ice bath is difficult,
too. "You jump in ice
water, and it takes your
breath away," she said.
She was a part of a


four-women team that
finished the Nov. 23
Tippecanoe 5K trail run
in Port Charlotte. She
said the stiffest challenge
there was a tall wall
participants had to scale
using a rope.
Gowans has done tri-
athlons in addition to 5Ks
and adventure runs. She
finished the Englewood
Triathlon in July in 1 hour,
39 minutes, the Venice
YMCA Triathlon in August
in 1:44.
Her venture into racing
hasn't gone without
wear on her body. She
was idle three weeks in
October because of back
issues. After treatment
from a chiropractor, she
resumed training.
Gowans placed 14th
among 36 (29:34) in the
women's 35-39 age group
in Thursday's Turkey Trot
5K.
Her next big test is a
January half marathon
in Key West. "Hopefully I
finish," she said.

UF's Purifoy enters NFL draft


STAFF REPORTS
Florida cornerback
Loucheiz Purifoy will
enter the 2014 NFL Draft.
Purifoy, a member of
Florida head coach Will
Muschamp's first signing
class in 2011, played in 37
games over three seasons.
"I have had a great
three years at the
University of Florida,
but at this time I think
it's best for me and my
family to pursue a career
in the NFL," Purifoy
said. "Coach Muschamp
and Coach [Travaris]
Robinson have put me in
a position to take the next
step. I know there is still a
lot of work for me ahead,
but I appreciate what
everyone at Florida did to
get me to this point."
The 6-foot, 185-pound
Purifoy is projected as a
first-round pick by sev-
eral NFL draft analysts,
including ESPN's Todd
McShay, who has Purifoy
ranked the fifth-best de-
fensive back in the draft
and the 26th overall pick
in his latest mock draft.

Miami chasing
playoff berth
after win lifts
team to 6-6
By STEVEN WINE
ASSOCIATED PRESS
DAVIE- The Miami
Dolphins had a record
of 3-3, and then 4-4, and
then 5-5. Each time they
lost the next game.
Now they're 6-6,
although defensive end
Olivier Vernon sees it
another way.
"It's like the season
has started over," Vernon
said. "It's 0-0, and we are
going to try to grind out."
With enough grinding,
maybe the Dolphins can
climb above .500. They
have a chance Sunday at
Pittsburgh (5-7).
The Dolphins will try
to build on their best
performance of the
year, a 23-3 road victory
Sunday against the
New York Jets. The win
brought the Dolphins'
season back from the
brink, and now they're
tied with Baltimore for
the sixth-best record in


the race for the AFC's six
playoff berths.
To end a franchise-re-
cord streak of four con-
secutive losing seasons,
Miami can't continue its
recent pattern of lose-
win-lose-win-lose-win.
"We've talked about
how the performance
level on the field has to
be better in December,
and part of that now is
consistency," coach Joe
Philbin said Monday.
"We're not going to
reinvent ourselves from
a schematic standpoint.
We should have an
identity by now of things
we do well. We've got to
be more consistent."
With four games
left, the margin for
error is small perhaps
nonexistent.
"We are in the playoff
hunt, and we have to win
every game," said line-
backer Dannell Ellerbe,
who knows the routine
because he played on
Baltimore's Super Bowl
championship team a
year ago. "But it's very
important to not look too
far down the road."
Players probably
shouldn't, but fans can.

NFL:


Redskins


officials


messed up

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEWYORK Redskins coach
Mike Shanahan spoke Monday with
the NFL's director of officiating after
the league said Sunday night's crew
made an error on Washington's
final drive.
The league said officials should
have stopped play and eliminated
confusion about the down and
distance at the end of the Giants'
24-17 victory at Washington.
"I talked to Dean earlier today,
he gave me a call and just went
over the scenario," Shanahan
said, referring to Dean Blandino,
who oversees NFL officiating.
"Obviously they made a mistake
and you live with it."
With New York leading by seven
points just after the two-minute
warning, a catch by the Redskins'
Pierre Garcon on second-and-5
was spotted short of a first down
at the Washington 45. Referee Jeff
Triplette signaled third down.
But the head linesman, with the
Redskins in a hurry-up offense,
incorrectly motioned for the crew
to advance the chains, which
caused the down boxes to read

"In this situation where there is
obvious confusion as to the status
of the down, that play should have
been stopped prior to third down
and the correct down commu-
nicated to both clubs," Blandino
said Monday in a statement. "This
should have occurred regardless
of the fact that Washington had
no timeouts and it was inside two
minutes."

Struggling Smith remains Jets'
starting QB: Geno Smith is staying put as the
New York Jets'starting quarterback.
His hold on the job, however, is tenuous at best.
Rex Ryan confirmed that he's sticking with the
rookie despite Smith's struggles in the last several
games. Smith wasn't surprised when he was told
the morning after Sunday's 23-3 loss to Miami by
quarterbacks coach David Lee that he would start
this week's home game against the Oakland Raiders.
Smith was benched in favor of Matt Simms at

on his blocker side by
deflecting an Anton
Volchenkov shot from the
point.
The Canadiens tied it at
8:49 of the second when
David Desharnais made a
no-look, behind-the-back

GATORS
FROM PAGE 1
for Connecticut, which
was outrebounded 34-26,
but was able to make
up a size difference with
its strong guard play
on the perimeter. This
was Connecticut's first
game this season against
a ranked opponent.
Florida's previous loss was
in its only game against a
ranked team, Wisconsin.
Casey Prather had
19 points and seven
rebounds for the Gators,
while Patric Young had
17 points and seven
rebounds. Scottie
Wilbekin, playing in his
third game of the season
after being suspended


for the first four, had 15
points but he injured an
ankle with 3:01 to play,
was taken to the locker
room and never returned.
After Wilbekin left Young
took over, scoring the
Gators' next seven points,
two baskets on his hook
shot and another on an
offensive rebound.
That made it 62-59
Florida with 1:18 to play.
Connecticut missed
two 3-point attempts but
got the rebound on both.
Napier took a 25-foot
jumper that swished and
he was fouled by Dorian
Finney-Smith. Napier
stayed on the floor for
about a minute, holding
his left ankle.
Connecticut coach
Kevin Ollie called a
timeout so Napier could


stay in the game and take
the free throw. He made it
to give the Huskies a 63-62
lead with 33 seconds left.
Michael Frazier II drove
to the basket to give the
Gators a 64-63 lead with
17 seconds remaining.
The programs' only
other meeting was in
the 1994 Sweet 16, when
the Gators won 69-60 in
overtime on the way to

the team hadn't finalized the deal
or formally announced interest in
Kazmir.
The 29-year-old Kazmir went 10-9
with a 4.04 ERA in 29 starts and 158
innings last season for the Cleveland
Indians. It marked his return to the
big leagues for the first time since
making one poor outing for the
Angels in 2011, which followed a 9-15
performance in 2010 for Los Angeles.
With the pending acquisition of
Kazmir, the A's have filled a rotation
spot with a veteran starter as they had
hoped to do. That means the two-time
defending AL West champions won't
necessarily continue to pursue a new
deal for 40-year-old 18-game winner
Bartolo Colon.

Around the majors:
Catcher Dioner Navarro and the
Toronto Blue Jays agreed to a
two-year, $8 million contract. Navarro
batted .300 with a career-high 13
home runs and 34 RBIs in 89 games
for the Chicago Cubs last season. The
2008 All-Star has not played more
than 89 games in a season since 2009
because of injuries. ...
The Pittsburgh Pirates acquired
catcher Chris Stewart from the New
YorkYankees for a player to be named.
Stewart hit .211 with four home runs
and 25 RBIs in a career-high 109
games for New York in 2013. He threw
out 17 runners, the fifth-highest total
in the American League. ...
Infielder Brendan Ryan agreed to
a $5 million, two-year contract to
remain with the Yankees in a deal that
includes team and player options for
2016. He hit .220 with one homer in
17 games and finished the season
with a .197 average, four homers and
22 RBIs. ...
Pittsburgh Pirates minor league
prospect Evan Chambers died in his
sleep over the weekend. He was
24. Pirates general manager Neal
Huntington had no additional details,
but he said in a statement the team
was "shocked"and "saddened" by
Chambers'passing.

U.S. Hall of Fame
inducts Weight, Guerin:
Doug Weight recalls his father putting
him on skates at the age of 2 because
he could barely walk due to a child-
hood condition that relegated him
to wearing braces on his legs. Four
decades later, the two-time Stanley
Cup champion, three-time Olympian
and four-time NHL All-Star was

Construction workers returned to the
stadium that will host the opening
match of the World Cup, five days
after an accident killed two workers
and renewed questions about Brazil's
readiness to hold the tournament.
Small groups of stonemasons, metal

Itaquerao Stadium in Sao Paulo,
expressing determination to finish
work ahead of the Cup opener on June

perfect time to remind
him that stifling competi-
tion was exactly why guys
like Jacobs created the
BCS and its previous
incarnations in the
first place. Nearly two
decades ago, the power
brokers running college
football's major confer-
ences hijacked the sport's
postseason to make
certain the choice spots
in the big-money bowls
went to their friends. If
occasionally that meant
choosing one friend over
another, well, no need to
take it personal; that's just
how business works.
To be fair, Auburn has
plenty to argue about.
The Tigers just beat top-
ranked Alabama, winner
of three of the last four
national championships,
and three other top-flight
teams. Neither Florida
State nor Ohio State built
anywhere near as impres-
sive a resume this season,
in large part because both
belong to conferences
- the ACC and Big Ten
- that look weak when
stacked against the SEC.
And somewhere in the
Jacobs' mind, no doubt, is
the memory of how a 13-0
Auburn team was left out
of the 2004 championship
game that matched simi-
larly unbeaten, but much
higher-wattage Southern
California and Oklahoma.
The BCS gentlemen's
agreement that holds a
one-loss team doesn't
leapfrog an unbeaten in
the rankings provided
both are from power con-
ferences will likely stick
next week, even if Florida
State squeaks by No. 20
Duke and Ohio State does
the same against No. 10
Michigan State.
Come this time next
year the argument will be
moot, because the BCS
disappears and a four-
team playoff will make its
long-delayed debut. The
debate, if there is one,
will be over who's No. 5.
The last decade of results
showed there's rarely
more than four legitimate
national title contenders.
But wouldn't it be a fit-
ting last-gasp for the BCS
to make its exit as contro-
versial as its beginning?
Imagine if Florida State
and Ohio State both lost
next weekend; suddenly
the title game would
between the Auburn-
Missouri winner and -
who else? Alabama.
How satisfying would
that be, at least beyond
the geography of the SEC?

SAUBURN, Ala. Don't

SThe third-ranked Tigers

of close calls and amazing
Finishes to make it into

Conference champion-

SThey balk at any notion

though.
"I wouldn't say it's luck

at," Auburn fullback Jay
Prosch said on Monday.
"It's not luck, but I do

games.
Those plays made
that touchdown with
10 seconds left to beat
Mississippi State and the
game-winner with 1:19
remaining against No. 22
Texas A&M, plus some late
defensive stands, seem
downright mundane.
'Against Georgia,
that was just a miracle,"
Auburn tailback Corey
Grant said. "It was a great
play. I kind of look at (the
Alabama) game, that
was more of a coaching
standpoint to put Chris
back there. Coaches with
their job, they should
know stuff like that. That
was a great deal of coach-
ing from our coaches to
put Chris back there in
that situation with that
happening."
Gus Malzahn's Tigers
(11-1) have proven they're
awfully good just by
being in position to defeat


teams like the two-time
defending national
champion Crimson Tide.
A win over Missouri (11-1)
coupled with a loss by
either No. 1 Florida State
against No. 20 Duke or No.
2 Ohio State versus No.
10 Michigan State, and
Auburn could be playing
for a national title.
It wouldn't be the
strangest occurrence of
Auburn's season.
"It's just amazing that
this keeps happening,"
Prosch said.
Malzahn doesn't think
it's happenstance that
his first Auburn team is
managing to pull out tight
games.
"I think it is unique and
it is rare that you have
teams that believe they
are going to win no matter
how bad it looks," he said.
"They still have bright
eyes and belief in each
other and that is what our
guys have found a way
to do. We talked all week
before last week's game
that we have to get it close
to the fourth quarter and
we will win the game. And
they believed it and they
found a way to do it."

For Buckeyes,



no breather


By RUSTY MILLER
ASSOCIATED PRESS
COLUMBUS, Ohio-
There was a time when
Ohio State players could
look forward to a break
after trading bruises with
archrival Michigan.
Not anymore. At least,
not this year.
No sooner did the
second-ranked Buckeyes
escape Michigan Stadium
with a 42-41 victory -
thanks to Tyvis Powell's
last-minute interception
on a two-point conversion
pass at the goal line -
than they were immersing
themselves in preparation
for yet another make-or-
break game.
The Big Ten champion-
ship game against No. 10
Michigan State the only
top-15 team Ohio State
has played in a school-re-
cord 24-game winning
streak under coach
Urban Meyer looms
on Saturday at Lucas Oil
Stadium in Indianapolis.


I think they are sore,
Meyer said on Monday. "I
have got to be smart this
week in what we do. As
far as energy and focus -
and throw in the fact that
it's finals week at Ohio
State we have to be
really efficient with these
guys."
No. 2 in the BCS stand-
ings, the Buckeyes need
to win to hang on to their
spot in the BCS national
championship game.
Since 1943, Ohio State
has not had an opponent
between Michigan and a
bowl game. But with the
Big Ten going to a two-di-
vision format three years
ago, it was only a matter
of time until the Buckeyes
were busy again the week
after their annual grudge
match with Michigan.
A year ago, the Buckeyes
also went 12-0, but were
not permitted to play in
the Big Ten title game or
a bowl because of NCAA
sanctions from violations
that occurred on former


Ohio State coach Urban Meyer joins his team in singing the
school's alma mater after their 42-41 win against Michigan.

coach Jim Tressel's watch.
It's not as if they don't
have some things to work
on this week.
The defense sur-
rendered 603 yards to
Michigan's previously
erratic offense. Devin
Gardner completed 32 of
45 passes for 451 yards
and four touchdowns


- including three in
the fourth quarter as
Michigan pulled even
after trailing by 14 points.
Ohio State doesn't have
to worry about losing
guard Marcus Hall.
The Big Ten office on
Monday decided not to
suspend any players for
their actions in the wake
of a fight in Saturday's
game, instead issuing a
public reprimand to Hall
and the coaching staff.
Hall was ejected for
coming onto the field to
participate in the skir-
mish. As he was leaving,
he angrily threw his
helmet to the ground and
made an obscene gesture
to Michigan fans.

Sarkisian takes


Southern Cal job


Wake Forest's
Grobe resigns
BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Steve Sarkisian was
named the head coach
at Southern California
on Monday, leaving
Washington to return to
the Trojans' storied foot-
ball program for another
run at national titles.
Two days after USC's
regular season ended with
a home loss to UCLA,
Trojans athletic director
Pat Haden replaced
interim coach Ed Orgeron
with yet another assistant
coach from Pete Carroll's
championship-winning
era at the school.
The 39-year-old
Sarkisian is a Los Angeles-
area native who went
34-29 in five seasons at
Washington, rebuilding a
decimated program into a
bowl contender. He is the
permanent replacement
for Lane Kiffin, his former
co-offensive coordinator
at USC under Carroll.


He will be introduced at
a news conference today.

Around the nation: Wake
Forest's Jim Grobe announced his
resignation, saying "it's probably good
for the program to have some new
energy, some new direction."The
61-year-old was 77-82 in 13 years,
sharing the program record for wins
with D.C."Peahead"Walker....
The Big Ten Conference issued a
public reprimand of Nebraska football
coach Bo Pelini and fined the school
$10,000 for Pelini's comments about
the officiating in the Cornhuskers'game
against Iowa last week. ...
Michigan coach Brady Hoke said he
expects QB Devin Gardner and all of his
assistant coaches to return in 2014 ...
Illinois announced coach Tim
Beckman will be back in 2014 after a
second consecutive losing season.

Seminoles headline
all-ACC teams: Quarterback
Jameis Winston was among 17 players
from top-ranked Florida State to
make one of the all-ACC teams. Seven
Seminoles made the first team in
voting by the Atlantic Coast Sports
Media Association.

Symptoms of collagenous "

colitis hard to live with F


DEAR DR. ROACH: I
have a rare type of colitis
called collagenous colitis.
The latest episode was
set off two and a half
years ago, when I took
stations for a short time.
I have not been able to
get it under control since
then. Asacol has not been
successful, although it did
work in the past. The only
thing that seems to work
now is budesonide, which
is terribly expensive and
causes weight gain. Any
suggestions? D.W
ANSWER: Collagenous
colitis causes watery
diarrhea, and it can
be triggered by certain
medications, especially
anti-inflammatory
drugs, but also stations.
Fortunately, it is not
life-threatening and
doesn't lead to cancer,
but the symptoms can be
difficult to live with.
Budesonide is consid-
ered the most effective
treatment. Other options
include sulfasalazine
(a relative of Asacol)
and cholestyramine.
Prednisone is much
cheaper than budesonide,
but doesn't work as well
and has even more side
effects. Some people with
collagenous colitis also
have celiac disease, so it
might be worthwhile to
get tested.
DEAR DR. ROACH: I
recently read that drink-
ing beet-root juice helps
to increase nitric oxide
in the blood. This could
increase blood flow in the
penis, to help with erectile
dysfunction. My question
is: How much should
one consume to achieve
the maximum effect? My
weight is 180, and my
health is good. S.K.R.
ANSWER: Beet-root
juice, or even a diet high
in vegetables, is suffi-
cient to increase levels
of nitrate, which can be
converted by bacteria to
nitrite, which is absorbed
into the blood. Blood ni-
trite then increases nitric
oxide, in theory improving
blood flow, which could
possibly help erectile
dysfunction. I could
not find a single study
confirming that (or even
evaluating it) beet-root
juice is effective for this
indication, even though
the theory makes sense.
Studies on beet-root juice
improving blood flow
in athletes shows mixed
results some people are
helped; some aren't.
If you decide to try it -
and it should be safe to
do so the recommend-
ed amount is 300-500 cc
(12-16 ounces), and it


Dr. Roach

should reach optimum
effect in two to three
hours.
DEAR DR. ROACH: I re-
cently read your column
regarding T-Cell Sezary
syndrome. My husband
was suffering with severe
itching/red rash and was
misdiagnosed with psori-
asis for longer than three
years. He had several
biopsies, and blood work
showed elevated white
blood cells. We also spent
several thousand dollars
for ointments and creams
to relieve itching. We fi-
nally found a dermatolo-
gist who immediately said
this was not psoriasis.
After a deep-tissue biopsy
and additional blood
testing, he was diagnosed
with mycosis fungoides.
He was told by our new
oncologist that this is not
curable but that PUVA
treatments will help (at
this time, we have elected
to go without the chemo
drugs). We are seeing
improvement with these
treatments.
I just wanted to let
people know how often
this can be misdiagnosed.
We depend on the
"specialists" and their
knowledge, put our life
in their hands, and they
need to go a little further.
If they haven't helped or
the patient isn't showing
signs of improvement,
then I say we need to find
someone who is more
familiar with this.
ANSWER: That's a great
point, and it is true not
just for skin conditions.
The abnormal white
blood cell counts should
have been a clue for your
doctor, but the lack of
improvement led you,
absolutely appropriately,
to get a second opinion.
Dr. Roach regrets that
he is unable to answer
individual letters, but
will incorporate them
in the column when-
ct'i ue,, IOsil/ Readers

Don't burn candles all the wayo


Dear Heloise: Here
is a reason to not burn
candles all the way down:
I was reading in bed and
burning down the last of
a small candle that was
already sputtering out. I
was getting drowsy and
thought I'd just let the
candle burn itself out. So,
I went to sleep.
I woke up when I heard
a whoosh of air and saw
my lampshade engulfed in
flames, which were licking
the bottom of my drapes!
I don't remember how I
put the fire out, but I sure
counted myself lucky. I
have never again left a
candle to burn itself out!
- Karen M. in Indiana
Yikes! You are very, very
lucky! This happens more
than you want to know.
Thank you for writing to
remind my readers that
candles are wonderful
for ambiance and aroma,
but they must be used
correctly.
Our friends at the
National Candle
Association urge people
who love candles (as
millions of us do) not to
burn them near anything
that may catch fire. Please
take notice of drapes,
lampshades, bedding,
books, a stack of mag-
azines, etc. Do not let a
candle burn out! To be
safe, put out the candle
when there is 2 inches of
wax left, or 1/2 inch if it is
in a container. Heloise
P.S.: My favorite is a
lavender candle that I use
when taking a relaxing
bubble bath!

Hints from Heloise

Identifying
presents
Dear Heloise: As a
mother of four sons and
grandmother of four, I put
photos of the grandkids on
their Christmas presents. I
make copies or print them
out. The kids have a blast
looking for their pictures.
I use funny ones, or ones
from when they were
babies or much younger
than they are now. It's great
for kids who can't read. -
Janice N. in Florida

Master r6sum6
Dear Heloise: I was laid
off and had to redo my
resume. It had been years
since I had looked for a job.
I started from the bottom
(first job to last job). If
sending out many applica-
tions and resumes, make
a large resume that lists
everything, but never send
this out. It is nice to look
at this and choose which
information is best-suited
for each of the jobs you
are applying for. You can
cut and paste to make the
perfect resume for each.

Woman saddened by partner 'MALLARD FILLMORE By Bruce Tinsley

who doesn't want kids v


DEARABBY: I ama
38-year-old woman who
has been dating a 41-year-
old man for seven months.
Sadly, although I have
always wanted children, he
does not.
At my age, I have dated
enough men to know that
I have found someone
special. My choice is either
to stay in a relationship,
knowing we won't have
children, or end it, hoping
I'll find someone just as
wonderful who wants kids.
Your advice in making
the hardest decision of
my life would be greatly
appreciated.- MATERNAL
IN NEWYORK
DEAR MATERNAL: I'll
try. Many women in their
late 30s find that conceiv-
ing a child is complicated,
and it can also take longer
than they thought. It has
taken you 38 years to find
this exceptional man, and
it could take quite a bit of
time to find another one.
If you married "Mr.
Wonderful" and learned
afterward that he couldn't
father a child, would you
leave him? Insist on adopt-
ing? Or would you count
the many blessings you do
have with him and stay?
Many women are hap-
pily childless. However, if
you're not one of them, you
should take your chances
and move on remem-
bering that there are no
guarantees.
DEARABBY: Iwork
on a busy street in San
Francisco where smokers
walk around puffing all
day while ignoring those
around them. Don't you
think they should be con-
siderate enough to smoke
at designated areas only
and not while walking with
their secondhand smoke
billowing around other
pedestrians?
We nonsmokers would
appreciate their courtesy
for others because we
don't want to inhale what
they're smoking. Can you
comment? HATES THAT
HABIT
DEAR HATES THAT
HABIT: I hate it, too,


Dear Abby

but unless there is an
ordinance in your city
that prohibits smoking on
certain sidewalks, I think
it's unrealistic to expect
smokers who inhale not to
exhale.
DEAR READERS: Years
ago, a young mother in
Arlington, Va., wrote my
mother about a book she
had received that promised
to help parents prepare
their children for school by
expanding their vocabulary.
The "secret?" Reading to
them while they are small.
Children learn words by
hearing them spoken in
context the more they
hear, the more they absorb.
Like everything else, read-
ing is something people
will do more of if they enjoy
it. When a parent reads to
a child, the child associates
reading with pleasure.
"The Read-Aloud
Handbook" by Jim Trelease
became a huge best-seller
when it was published.
Penguin Books called it one
of the 75 most important
books it has published in its
history. The book is now in
its seventh and last edition
and has been completely
revised. If you're a parent
who wants your child to
succeed, a grandparent, or
someone contemplating
becoming a parent in the
future, pick up a copy.
The first half is filled with
the latest research on the
importance of literacy for
children's success; the rest
lists book tides and ages of
the youngsters for which
they're intended. To learn
more about the author, visit
www.trelease-on-reading.
com. To order the book, go
to www.penguin.com. -
Love, ABBY


"And as the ark of the Lord came into the city of
David, Michal Saul's daughter looked through a win-
dow, and saw King David leaping and dancing before
the Lord: and she despised him in her heart."
-2 Samuel 6:16
God made us individuals. We should be careful
not to get all "up tight" toward those who have
loosened up in the Lord. "Where the Spirit of the Lord
is there is liberty." Nor should those who are given to
demonstration in the Lord, be critical of others who
worship Him quietly.

Opening lead: Jack of 46

The auction was routine. South
knew his partner wouldn't use
Stayman without a four-card major.
When North showed no interest in
hearts, he surely had spades.
South won the opening lead in
hand and took a moment. The key
suit was hearts. A heart to the king
would be the winning play when East
held the ace, but it could lead to three


heart losers should West hold that
card. South had a better plan.
Declarer realized that he could not
handle a bad break in trumps he
had too much to do. He first cashed
the queen of spades followed by a
low spade to dummy's ace. Everyone
followed so far so good.
Next declarer led dummy's 10 of
hearts, intending to let it run if East
played low. Should this lose to the
jack or queen, he would later go back
to dummy and play a heart to his
nine, assuring the contract whenever
East started with either the jack, the
queen or both. East covered the 10
with the jack and South was home.
He played the king, losing to the ace.
West played another club, South
winning in hand. Next came a spade
to dummy's king, drawing the last
trump and the queen of clubs
discarding a low diamond. The only
thing left to do was to force out the
queen of hearts and concede a
diamond. South had successfully
developed a heart trick and could ruff
his last heart in dummy. Well done!

Six Steps to Success


l e Tired of trying to make your way around
that old blender, bassinet, those bikes and boxes of
cast-off clothing? Schedule a garage sale to convert
those extra items into cash.

2 Ask your friends if they want to join in. More
merchandise means more shoppers and more money
for everyone.

3 Clean and polish your items. Fold clothes
neatly and arrange them by size and gender. Group
small pieces (like jewelry) together into plastic bags
so they're easy to price and display.


4' Arrange for plenty of tables and hanging
items so you can display everything prominently.
When it's time, set up your sale so people can move
around easily.

5 *Make a list of your best items, and then call
The Sun Classified to schedule your ad. Your ad rep
can help you create an ad that's sure to get customers
calling!

a Through The Sun Classified, you'll send the
news of your sale to thousands of potential buyers.
So, get out your change box and get ready to sell!

Second Wednesday of November and 20 men sit at two long tables at the William A. Garvey VFW Post 8203 in North Port. (A woman later joins the group.) They are there for what you might call nourishment and fellowship. All are members in good standing with the I.O.O.B. the International Order of Old Bastards. Youll notice there is no call to order, theres no treasurers report or anything, no agenda. Were just a group of guys who get together and have lunch two days a month, have some beer, tell some jokes, says Dick Gortz. Yes they do. Tell jokes. Just a bunch of OBs sitting around and BSing for an hour or so. (The woman, who remains nameless for her own protection, is ofcially a Bastardette.) My ofcial guide for the noon meal is the president and Arch-OB Norm Olszewski. Norm and his buddy Dick came from the same town in Ohio and now live in the Holiday Park community. (In fact, most of the OBs here are Holiday Parkers either two-thirds or per cent, depending on whos calculating. The exact wrong number is a subject of ongoing debate pre-entree course.) Next to Norm sits Wishy. To my left is Jim and next to him is Frank. Franks from Nantucket. Seriously. (Fill in your own limerick here. They did.) We have no objectives, Dick says. We just get together, drinking and telling jokes. After a beat he adds, Well, I guess that kind of is an objective. The North Port I.O.O.B. meets every second and fourth Wednesday of the month, except for November and December when they meet once a month and maybe not in the summer months. (It was a bit vague.) Lunch today at the VFW is turkey, mashed potatoes, yams and stufng. The beverage of choice is beer. Mid-meal, Jim tosses out a quick joke (on the clean side): One time, you know, my wife asks me, You think you can perform tonight? I say, what do you want me to do, the soft-shoe or what? Ba-dip-boom. Carol, of the VFW, stops by to collect money from the OBs. Of course, she has a couple of zingers handy. What do you call a guy is the rst. And then, Theyre up in a plane Laughs all around is all Ill say. After pumpkin pie, the ofcial jesting gets underway. Each OB jokester stands to address the other OBs. First comes a variation on a classic: This blonde was driving down the road Which ends with, Oh, youre OK. I didnt know you were a policeman. Next up: The Lone Ranger was captured by an Indian tribe The punchline? Posse, I said posse. Then: A golfer nishes up his round of golf and goes into the 19th hole, and theres Carol tending bar (I cant repeat the ending). This goes on for awhile. Viagra jokes, ethnic jokes (one featuring an Irish accent), jokes about police and atulence (involving turkey innards, believe it or not.) After awhile, the stand-up humor pe ters out. Then comes a rafe. I am asked to draw and my neighbor, Jim, wins a few bucks. It wasnt xed, I swear. The meeting eventually comes to a close and the OBs meander off, but not before a few take a detour into the VFW bar. More jokes to come. Stephen Baumann is a member of the Suns editorial board.

Around 8:15 a.m. almost to his destination Pupos truck was one of four vehicles involved in a crash on southbound U.S. 41 at the intersection of West Tarpon Boulevard. About 80 gallons of the trucks fuel spilled onto the road. All southbound lanes of U.S. 41 were shut down from Midway Boulevard to West Tarpon Boulevard for more than three hours while officials cleaned up the mess. The wreck occurred after an onduty Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce deputy was making an emergency turn across U.S. 41 with lights and sirens on, the Florida Highway Patrol reported. The dump truck rear-ended a pickup and a sedan, which had stopped at the intersection. The sedan was pushed into the CCSO patrol car, which as a precaution before turning had also stopped. The dump trucks fuel tanks cracked in the collision. I saw the green light in front of me, but the cars in front of me were stopped, Pupo said. I had plenty of distance, and I hit the brakes as fast as I could. The driver said he was going about 40 mph. He said he tried to steer his truck between the pickup and sedan that were in front of him when A mess of a crashBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERFour-car wreck, fuel leak shut down U.S. 41CRASH | 11 SUN PHOTO BY ADAM KREGERA four-car wreck Monday morning in Port Charlotte caused major delays after 80 gallons of fuel from a dump truck leaked into the intersection of U.S. 41 and West Tarpon Boulevard.Four members of a Port Charlotte family were involved in a rollover early Sunday on Interstate 10. Two remained hospitalized Monday one in serious condition. The Feehans Edward, 47; Kimberly Lynn Petersen-Feehan, 39; Tyler, 16; and Abigale,13 were all taken to hospitals in the Panhandle after their 2003 GMC pickup rolled about three times on I-10, just east of the mile-marker 60 rest area, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The incident occurred at 6:50 a.m. Kimberly the driver told authorities she fell asleep at the wheel and lost control of the vehicle. The truck drifted into the median for almost 400 feet before crossing back over the eastbound lanes and onto the shoulder, which caused the vehicle to spin and then roll, the report shows. Authorities say Tyler was partially ejected and received serious arm injuries. Representatives from Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola said the boy was in the surgical center there Monday, and Edward also was still at the hospital. Kimberly was taken to Sacred Heart, too, but was discharged Sunday. Abigale was taken to North Okaloosa Medical Center in Crestview and also was discharged Sunday. According to the FHP, the front passenger was ejected from the vehicle, but it didnt specify which family Local family recovering after I-10 rollover SundayBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERROLLOVER | 11Hundreds of guests ock to the citys Historic District each December to marvel at the Punta Gorda Garden Clubs holiday creations during the clubs annual holiday home tour.

Our Town Page 2 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, December 3, 2013 If you read this column, you know I like good ideas, and catchy names are a plus. Heres something I know for sure: Our local Kiwanians have some of the best ideas, and they come up with some catchy names. In the past year, Ive written about Sunrise Kiwanis Shoes for Kids collection, the Socks for Kids put on by the Punta Gorda Kiwanis, and Larry Taylors Undie Sunday collection. All have been a hit, and all get people to donate items they know will do some good in the community. So heres their latest project: Its the Diaper Dump! Now, what does that name conjure with you? OK, so once you get past that, think about what it means the Kiwanians are collecting diapers (yes, unused) for struggling families. As every parent and many grandparents know, the money you have to budget for a weeks worth of diapers can wipe you out. (Sorry.) Seriously, you can spend $25 to $30 a week, and thats not covered by food stamps, WIC or other programs. It can be a real burden if youre having tough times. The Diaper Dump is actually a statewide effort, explained Connie Thrasher, secretary of the Sunrise Kiwanis in Port Charlotte. Connie is coordinating this for her eightclub Kiwanis District, which includes clubs in Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, North Port, Englewood and Venice. Each is responsible for its own collection. We couldnt set up collection boxes, because this time of year, there are other collection boxes out all over, Thrasher explained. Were leaving it up to the individual clubs and members to get them collected. Theyre doing a good job, with several thousand diapers already collected. Its going to be up to the clubs to make sure the collected diapers get in the right hands too. We have about 20 agencies that need them, Thrasher said. The plan is pretty simple. Go to a store and buy a big bag of diapers any size will do. If you know a Kiwanian, just give him or her the diapers. If you dont know a Kiwanian, call 941-625-1858 for further instructions. The collection started Sunday and runs through Dec. 14.Update on Sun bikesWere about a week into the Sun Newspapers annual bicycle collection drive, but we still have a long way to go. This year, project coor dinator Nathan Lane has set a goal of collecting enough for 40 bikes. Weve already started collecting around the ofce, but were asking everyone to help. If youd like to donate, contact Nathan at 941-206-1138 or nlane@sun-herald. com. You also can bring or mail a donation to the Charlotte Sun ofce at 23170 Harborview Road, Charlotte Harbor. Make the checks out to Nathan Lane. Chris Porter is executive editor of the Sun Newspapers, and writes a weekly column on good ideas by nonprots.

Marion Ave., Punta Gorda, will showcase the works of artist Corleen Whitman, a Raku potter, during the month of December. Whitman began studying the art of producing Raku pottery in 1990, while living in Michigan. After moving to Englewood, she attended many workshops and classes in order to fur ther her knowledge of the unique Raku process. She found that the unpredictable nature of Raku was a great appeal to her. Whitmans Raku pottery will be on display at Sea Grape Gallery during the month of December. She will be available at the gallery during Decembers Gallery Walk to describe her Raku ring process. Her art also may be viewed at www.seagrapegallery. com. The gallerys hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday; and until 8 p.m. the third Thursday of each month for Gallery Walk.

LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS PUNTA GORDA A local man remained behind bars Monday after a Thanksgiving day incident at his home in which he threatened his girlfriend with a meat cleaver because she didnt know how to carve a turkey, according to the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce. Jay Russell Londin, 58, of the 5000 block of Palermo Drive in Punta Gorda, has been charged with aggravated assault with the intent to commit a felony after the alleged outburst around 7 p.m. Londin came out of a room yelling that no one knew how to cut a turkey, and he would therefore take care of it, the report shows. He picked up a meat cleaver, but allegedly turned to his girlfriend instead of the turkey. The victim says Londin grabbed her and she was in fear for her life. Witnesses conrmed this, the report shows. Londin is being held in the Charlotte County Jail on $5,000 bond.Report: Man beats, traps girlfriendENGLEWOOD A man accused of beating his girlfriend Sunday and trapping her in their house was arrested after the victim snuck out when he fell asleep, according to the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce. Jason Mattew Finton, 44, of the 100 block of East Riverview Avenue in Englewood, has been charged with battery, false imprisonment, depriving a victim of medical care and tamper ing with a witness by not letting them call 911. Finton allegedly came home intoxicated around 4 a.m. Sunday and told his girlfriend he had been in a ght because of her. The report shows he attacked her while she was laying on the bed, and he wouldnt let her call 911 or go to the hospital. Finton fell asleep shortly before 6 a.m., and the victim sneaked out of the house to drive to Englewood Community Hospital for treatment. She received stitches for a laceration near her left eye, which was swollen. At one point during the attack, the victim told authorities she may have passed out.

Not every arrest leads to a conviction and guilt or innocence is determined by the court system. PUNTA GORDA Just before 8 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941, U.S. Army Privates George Elliot Jr. and Joseph Lockhart detected blips on their radar screen at Opana Point, the northernmost part of the island of Oahu, located in the Hawaiian Islands. Both men quickly relayed the information to their superiors, who said it was nothing to be alarmed about six B-17 Flying Fortresses were arriving from California. They were wrong. Actually, it was the vanguard of a rst wave of more than 350 Japanese ghters, bombers and torpedo planes that were going to bomb and strafe the U.S. Naval Base at Pearl Harbor. That sneak attack, which resulted in more than 2,400 deaths and nearly 1,300 wounded, catapulted America into World War II. On Saturday at Center Court in Fishermens Village, a Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day ceremony will be held to pay tribute to the sacrices of those individuals who were killed and wounded on that tragic day 72 years ago. The program will kick off at 5 p.m. A reception will follow at the museum. Admission is free and open to the public. Hank Mastowski of the Marine Corps League and Kim Lovejoy, executive director of the Military Heritage Museum, are coordinating the event that will honor two Pearl Harbor survivors John Giddion and Bill Raney, who both served in the U.S. Navy. The keynote speaker will be retired U.S. Marine Maj. Larry Altenburg. The Charlotte County Chapter of the U.S. Paratroopers will provide the color guard. American Legion Post 110 Honor Guard will re the 21-gun salute. Marine Corps League detachment member Bill Crites will play taps. Active duty personnel representing all branches of the armed services will conduct a wreath laying ceremony. Music will be provided by Barb Mendillo on keyboard and the Royal Canadian Legion Pipes and Drums. The event is sponsored by the Charlotte County Veterans Council, the Charlotte County Marine Corps League Detachment 756, and the Military Heritage Museum.

Our Town Page 8 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, December 3, 2013 Fundraisers, or Obamacare?Editor: Barbara Bean-Melllinger wrote an interesting piece about Lori Bell, a 20-year postal employee who has cancer and other health problems. To help Ms. Bell a friend is holding an event to raise funds to offset medical expenses. Through the year, there have been other articles about people with health issues who either do not have health insur ance or whose insurance falls short of covering all medical expenses. Almost daily we have letters to the editor from people who are strongly against the Affordable Care Act (ACA). I wonder why there are people who would rather see their neighbors either go bankrupt or depend on community fundraisers to pay for medical care. Conservatives have been strongly opposed to any type of universal health care as long as I can remember and I can re member back to Harry Truman. I have never understood this.Peter Durham Punta GordaMarines, USPS collecting toysEditor: The Marine Corps Reserve, Toys for Tots, is joining the U.S. Postal Service in a combined toy drive Dec. 7. The Postal Service is asking everyone to leave a new, unwrapped toy on or in your mailbox on Dec. 7. Your mail carrier will pick up your toy when the daily mail is delivered. This drive includes Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte and Englewood. All toys will be delivered to the Marines in our area for distribution to children in need. All toys will remain in Charlotte County. If youre unable to leave a new unwrapped toy the day of the drive, carriers will pick up any toy that you have early. For your convenience, there will also be drop-off boxes at the Port Charlotte branch, Punta Gorda, Murdock and Englewood post ofces. We encourage everyones help in dropping off your toys, as some may be too large for carriers to transport. Toys will be collected for the post ofce up to Dec. 7. Last year, carriers collected 5,000 toys in Charlotte County. However, with the jobless situation in our county, the demand for toys this year is even greater! A lot of families will be doing without. Help us do our part this season to brighten a childs Christmas. Please leave a new, unwrapped toy on or in your mailbox on Dec. 7, or drop it off at your local post ofce. Your help will deliver smiles and happiness!Sharon Winesett Punta GordaCanadas health service a modelEditor: Lets call it health service. We have police, re, military and various state and municipal services that are not funded through insurance premiums. Why should health service be any different? As a snowbird who has had experience with both the Canadian and U.S. health service systems, both offer excellent care, but under the Canadian system there is no monetary decision to make. If you need health services, you get them. No one should be misled by the claim that under a national health service system, life or death decisions would be made by supposed death panels. In fact, in many instances, it is the health insurance companies who are acting as death panels. No one should be mislead by the claim of long lines to see a doctor. How is Canadian health service funded? Its funded in the main through a small employer tax on the wages paid. In 2010, the annual per capita cost for health care in the U.S was $8,233 versus $4,445 in Canada. In 2013, life expectancy at birth was 78.62 years in the U.S. versus 81.57 in Canada. The beauty of this national health service system is that everyone is covered not only for sickness and accidents, but for many preventive tests and procedures, such as mammograms, prostate tests, etc. Lets stop talking about health insurance and start talking about health service.Ron Smith Port CharlotteHomeless should be spread outEditor: This is my perspective in response to homeless housing near downtown Englewood: Have any of the local ofcials seen or heard of projects and the stigma involved? Placing these people, and namely their offspring, together may place them in jeopardy of becoming part of a gang. Distributing the homeless in various neighborhoods where they could be more readily assimilated to their surroundings might be more benecial. Every town has an undesirable neighborhood because of economic circumstances, sometimes in sheer negligence and neglect. Whatever the reason, lets not perpetuate it here. How does the local business community feel about the proposal? I am speaking as a person who has seen these good ideas crumble almost as fast as the buildings that were built in good faith. Consider housing our homeless randomly and welcome them into all neighborhoods.Dolores Van Slambrouck EnglewoodSupreme Court isnt representativeEditor: Do you know the religious afliation of the nine Supreme Court justices? Six are Catholic, three are Jewish. Is that representative of the U.S. population? Oh well, its not like they ever make any decisions related to religion. Sue Radebaugh EnglewoodA thanks from Team Parkside Editor: A huge thank you to all of the sponsors, vendors, volunteers and members of the community who supported and participated in the Second Annual Parkside Festival. Despite the overcast skies and occasional rain showers, we had a very respectable, enthusiastic turnout. Team Parkside, in partnership with the Charlotte County Community Services Department, stepped up the game this year with an awesome Kids Zone, which included Touch a Truck, a big hit with the many children (and adults) in attendance, as well as some pretty awesome local entertainment. Our objective in providing this event in the Heart of Port Charlotte is to provide an annual fun community event for Parkside residents and the greater community. One of Team Parksides goals is to improve the quality of life in Parkside by providing activities, services, a community garden and other aesthetic enhancements. A big shout-out to some key players who helped make this festival possible, namely Jerry Mix and Alexandria French from Fawcett Hospital, Mike Koenig of Charlotte County Community Services, the Charlotte County Sheriffs Department, Waste Management and Pat Garriton and her hard-working committee. Thank you as well to the unnamed volunteers, as there were too many to list here, but we are so appreciative of your time and effort in making this a wonderful event. We are looking forward to an even bigger, better event in 2014.Susan Swanson Port CharlotteFed spending will break our economyEditor: As conservatives, we constantly ask, how can we continue to spend money that we dont have? We know the limits of our family income and we know that overspending equals increased debt which does nothing but make us poorer. But in Washington, the excessive spending continues without much change. Sure, we have the sequester, but we still are sending aid to most countries of the world. We still subsidize green energy companies, and we continue to grow the federal payroll. The sequester really was only a bump in the spending road. Heres the secret. If our household, our school system, our county or our state had printing presses, we could spend like drunken sailors. What would you do with a government printing press in your garage? The possibilities are endless. That is until someone wised up and said, Hey, that money is as worthless as Monopoly money, then the ride would end. Well, eventually, the world will wise up to the Feds printing presses and our money will no longer be the reserve currency of the world and we will no longer be in the drivers seat. In addition, we will see ination, where it could take 100 of those phony dollars to get a gallon of gas. And wages wont begin to keep up. You think things are rough now? They arent done with us yet.Jim Chaney Rotonda WestWho heeds the carrots cry?Editor: A couple of well-intentioned Thanksgiving-era letters appeared urging eating veggies to save the lives of thousands of turkeys. Good plan. Except the correspondents have never heard the shriek of a carrot yanked from the soil that bore it. And too, theyve missed the yelps of soy beans torn from their bushes to become tofu. Then theres the bass growl of a potato tugged from the earth. Actually thats a russet. Yukon golds emit more of a yeeping sound. Worse yet would be the screams of broccoli and cabbage being beheaded. Life in the garden is brief and cruel. This is why there is an alternate PETA organization. The evil, dark PETA stands for People Eating Tasty Animals. Happy Christmas ham.Dwight Tracy Port CharlotteSeniors not forgottenThey say Christmas is for kids. And, to a large degree, that is true. No one gets as excited opening up presents as a child. And, when that present is exactly what they asked Santa for, the enthusiasm is intensied. The image of excited children opening presents and the idea that many children in our area may not have presents to open is what spawned a number of organizations and businesses to put up angel trees each year. Those, of course, are trees located in various businesses that have cards attached with the names of children whose family cannot afford presents, or children who for one reason or another, do not have a family. The cards list a number of gifts the kids have requested. Mike Levine, owner of the Home Instead Cafe franchise in Venice and South Sarasota County, believes there are seniors in our communities who are just as needy as kids. Levine is sponsoring Be a Santa to a Senior trees in Englewood, Venice and North Port. His goal is to gather enough presents to make the holiday a little happier for 400 or more seniors most of them who have no family and are alone for Christmas. Levine quietly began the charity about 10 years ago. Last year, he was able to collect gifts for about 200 seniors whose names he collects from social service caseworkers, the Salvation Army, nursing homes and other agencies. You can nd trees at Bealls Outlet stores in Englewood, Venice and North Port or call 941-375-8400 for more information. We think it is a marvelous idea to embrace our seniors and make sure they are not forgotten at Christmas.Florida dodges another hurricane season, now what?For the eighth straight year, Florida was not impacted by a land-falling hurricane. With hurricane preparedness drilled into our heads and our habits, many of us now have unused storm kits and supplies, including batteries, water jugs, canned food and lled gas cans. While some of this will keep or can be used up over time, other items will spoil, go bad or present safety issues. Heres what you can do. Canned goods: Food pantries and homeless shelters are always low on supplies this time of year. Find one near you and drop off your canned goods. Dont forget your local animal shelter if you stocked up on extras for your furry friends. Battieries: Battery shelf life is limited and chances are they wont work this time next year. But Christmas offers a great chance to put them to use by bundling batter ies with electronic gifts. If you keep your batteries, remove them from ashlights, radios and lanterns as they could corrode and ruin them. Water jugs: Plastic bottles deteriorate over time and can crack, leaving you with minor water damage or worse. You can use them before the bottles go bad by watering plants or freezing them to use in a cooler. Gasoline: If you stocked up on gas for your generator or car, remember that fuel has a limited shelf life. Condensation, oxidation and evaporation are among the problems with stored gas, not to mention the danger presented by fumes released from poorly sealed containers. Adding fuel stabilizer is one option, but your best bet is to add it to your car tank and get more gas next year. Heres another helpful post-hur ricane season tip via the Pinellas County Emergency Management Ofce: When you send out your holiday cards, add a note with updated contact info if youve changed an email address or cellphone number.

The Sun /Tuesday, December 3, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINT Nestled just off Exit 131 on Interstate 75 is the home base of the Florida Highway Patrol Troop F as well as the District 1 base of the Southwest Interagency Facility for Transportation. I had the privilege of visiting and touring this facility recently and to say the least I was impressed not only with the facility but with the individuals who make it all happen within. Troop F is responsible for 10 counties, including Charlotte County. Currently there are six Florida Highway Patrol Troopers assigned to Charlotte County with the added responsibility of responding to neighboring counties when circumstances warrant the need. Simply stated, the role of the Florida Highway Patrol Troop F is to keep our roads safe. In order to accomplish this goal, Troop F has an assortment of basic and high tech tools at their disposal to help attain their goal. First and foremost, patrolling the roads and highways of Charlotte County and taking the necessary action to remind all our drivers to obey the laws of the road. These reminders usually come in the form of a warning or citation and in some instances DUI checkpoints. The use of in-car and hand-held radar devices are most common. An additional tool is their aviation unit which patrols over I-75. The unit can pinpoint speeds and radio the information including vehicle description from the air to their ground units who will perform a safe and efficient stop before the violator has any idea he/she was being moni tored. This technology is virtually undeniable in a court of law due to its pinpoint accuracy. In Charlotte County, from the Lee County line all the way to the Sarasota line, there are cameras positioned at one mile intervals on both North and Southbound lanes. These cameras are an integral part of the 511 Traveler Information System, which is collocated with the communications center in Fort Myers. The cameras are not fixed units and can be controlled by personnel in Southwest Interagency Facility for Transportation and reposition as well as zoom in or out. The FHP communications center looks like something out of a Hollywood movie with one high wall display ing flat screen monitors capable of displaying any one of the cameras on the interstate in Charlotte County. It provides additional information to the troopers responding to an incident scene via the communications center virtually moments after the call is received. Along with approximately 26 cameras, there are 17 message boards displaying traffic conditions, distance to a particular exit, estimated travel time to that exit as well as Amber Alerts or any other information to keep the drivers informed. They are changed regularly depending on the ever-changing traffic conditions. Troop F also investigates traffic crashes and incidents where a crash resulted in a fatality. However, the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office and the Punta Gorda Police Department can investigate these incidents as well if they choose to do so. In 2012, FHP investigated 15 traffic fatalities in Charlotte County alone. Were fortunate, in Charlotte County, to have the highway cameras and message boards. Were one of three counties in Southwest Florida to have this equipment. The remaining two interstate counties falling under the Troop F jurisdiction are scheduled for this upgrade in the future. You can learn about the FHP at www.flhsmv.gov/fhp/ index.html and the Florida Department of Transportations District One operation center at www.swiftsunguide. com/. Finally, the Florida Highway Patrol is out there to keep you safe on our highways, even if its around the curve ahead or in the sky. Dont become a statistic. Like most of us, our troopers hate the extra paperwork, too. Special thanks goes out to Lt. Greg Bueno, the FHP public infor mation officer for Troop F, for his help with this article. Job well done.

Dearborn St. (941) 475-0636 On Nov. 29, roughly 250 Punta Gorda residents attended Team Punta Gordas 2013 annual meeting to hear about this years accomplishments and the projects planned for the coming year. Following the theme of Happenings on the Harbor, the three guest speakers were optimistic about the year ahead. All described projects that will have a signicant impact on the future of our community. City Manager Howard Kunik described a year full of promise. He asked if those in the audience had noticed the changes taking place on U.S. 41 including the new Montys Restaurant, Bealls Outlet store, the Yamaha Store and Dollar General. Additionally, housing starts are up with 81 permits issued this year. He also stressed the importance of partnerships in getting things done. Punta Gorda Pathways is complete, and a new bicycle route system is in place with four routes for cy clists to try. This coming year the city will focus on the reverse osmosis plant, street resurfacing and downtown flooding phase II. Cheney Brothers Vice President Warren Newell spoke of the companys soon-to-be built food distribution facility. The operation will be a $30 million capital investment with 350 jobs added to Charlotte County. It will be a 375,000 square foot building with $10 million in equipment and $30 million in merchandise. When you add in the cost of construction, the total investment is $80 million. Newell pointed out that, not only will it create much-needed jobs, it will stimulate business in many other sectors. Dirt will start moving in two months and the facility will be operational by 2015. David Dunn-Rankin, president of Sun Coast Media Group, was present representing the Aquarium Committee. He gave an update on the aquarium feasibility study that is currently underway and is intended to determine whether an aquarium in downtown Punta Gorda is nancially feasible. With the help of Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota, a study group was formed and a consultant hired. The cost of the study is $75,000. Mote contributed hundreds of hours of consulting time and also contributed to the study fund. While an aquarium would be a centerpiece for our downtown and would provide an education and research facility on Charlotte Harbor, it must be a project that can make enough money to be sustainable. The study will be completed soon and the results will be available to the public. In the year ahead, Team Punta Gorda will focus on both new projects and continuing initiatives. Our partner ship with the city will continue as we focus on our Bicycle Friendly Communities project. Together, with city staff, well work on improving resources, public education and bicycle/ pedestrian safety. A new initiative that we are most excited about is called Paint Your Heart Out Punta Gorda. Partnering with Habitat for Humanity and the City of Punta Gorda, this project will use teams of volunteers to paint and landscape homes for those in need. The project planning kicks off next week and the work days are to be scheduled for March and April. Projects of this type which require collaboration with a number of community partners have impacts which go well beyond the life of the initial activity. Once powerful partnerships are developed and results are obtained, other possibilities emerge and lead to even more beneficial outcomes for the community. Joint planning and effort brings a sense of ownership, commitment and buy-in from the various parties who have worked toward a common objective. In order for a citizens group like Team Punta Gorda to be effective, we always need volunteers. We hope youll join with us as we continue our work to make the Punta Gorda area a great place to live, work and play. Nancy Johnson is the CEO of Team Punta Gorda.

The sanctuary was decorated by club members with holiday ornaments made with all natural materials, including dried and fresh greens and owers found in local gardens and yards. The four homes that are on display are located at 308 W. Ann St.; 117 Durrance St.; 114 McGregor Ave.; and 724 W. Olympia Ave. Visitors will also be able to view holiday decorations, enjoy light refreshments and purchase potted poinsettias at the First United Methodist Church, located at 507 W. Marion Ave. The clubs holiday event began in 1992 when the Punta Gorda Days committee invited the Punta Gorda Garden Club to help celebrate Punta Gordas 100-year anniversary. That year, wreaths were made for eight homes. The following year, the club held the first-ever Holly Days Home Tour, which is held each year the first weekend of December. In 2004, Hurricane Charley interrupted the festivities, as the city struggled to rebound from the devastation. That year the Punta Gorda Garden Club sold poinsettias and invited vendors to sell plants, a tradition that continues to this day. Advance tickets will be available from garden club members or can be purchased at the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce at the Freeman House, 311 W. Retta Esplanade, Punta Gorda; or at 2701 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte. Tickets also will be available at each location on the days of the tour.

The dump truck hit a sedan and a pickup, and about 80 gallons of fuel from the vehicle leaked into the intersection of U.S. 41 and West Tarpon Boulevard. All lanes of U.S. 41 southbound were shut down between Midway Boulevard and West Tarpon Boulevard from about 8:30 a.m. to noon while ocials cleaned the mess. A Charlotte Technical Center program has exceptional education students Matt Shelton and Sandrae Williams excited about entrepreneurship. Shelton and Williams worked together in the classroom designing rainbow loom bracelets as part of the Real World Employability Skills Program. Its awesome, Shelton said. When were done, we start selling the bands. Real World is a posthigh school program for ESE (Exceptional Student Education) students ages 18 to 22. The program works with Bizworld, a nonprot that aims to inspire entrepreneurship by incorporating a classroom business model into the curriculum. By doing schoolbased enterprises, were fostering their employability skills, said instructor Nancy Bieberdorf. The 10 students in Sheltons class named their business Real World Corporation, and applied for positions within the business with resumes and job interviews. Students are held accountable, and use punch cards at the beginning and end of every class. Shelton, a vice president of nance, said so far hes made $47 in bracelet sales, which goes back into the business. If the business is protable at the end of the year, the students get to decide how to spend the money. According to Bieberdorf, the class cur rently has three major projects students are working on. While some students work on the rainbow loom bracelets, others work together making Christmas cards, which also will be sold. In January, Bieberdorf hopes to have students raising money through a community garden at Port Charlotte High School, which will provide produce for the culinary programs at both PCHS and the Technical Center. The Real World program also gets students working in the community. Students volunteer with community partners such as Publix, Goodwill and St. Vincent de Paul to learn career skills and professionalism. Marty Lach, another instructor in the program, said when they go out there they turn into real professionals. Im very proud of them. Bieberdorf said the program is always actively seeking community partners with volunteer positions the students can learn from. Were looking for winwin partnerships where someone would like to have students to work at entry level positions, said Bieberdorf. The biggest thing for employers to understand is that (the students) are volunteers they dont have to hire them. Some students, like Shelton, do go on to apply for jobs with the employers if they feel like theres a good t.

The Sun /Tuesday, December 3, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 13 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS This holiday season, the Charlotte Chorale will ring in its 25th year with a concert, A Christmas Odyssey, on Dec. 14 at 4 p.m. at the Center for Performing Arts in Punta Gorda. The concert will also herald the premiere appearance of William Dederer, the groups new artistic director. Dederer has masters and doctoral degrees from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. His 41-year musical career has included 13 years as professor of music at the State University of New York at Fredonia, 16 years at the Boston Conservatory as dean and vice president for Academic Affairs, as well as dean of the Conservatory of Music at Capital University in Columbus, Ohio. He has also personally performed on the trum pet for the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Pittsburgh Symphony and the Chicago Ballet. Meanwhile, he directed a variety of choirs for 20 years. In his new role as artistic director of the Charlotte Chorale, Dederer succeeded former director R. Bruce MacGregor, who retired at the end of last season. Dederer began working with the chorale as assistant director one year prior to enable him to transition smoothly into the directors role. He has held auditions to expand and add to the talented musicians of the chorale as the group began its 25th year. It was 1989 when MacGregor started the chorale with a group of 28 gifted vocal musicians. MacGregor saw a need within the community for elite, highly talented singers to tackle challenging music and perform it for the community. The chorale grew through the years and now includes approximately 70 singers, depending on the season. I am very excited about working with this talented group of singers and ... sharing with them the joy of making music, and to share that joy with the community, Dederer said. Tickets for A Christmas Odyssey are $20 for adults and $10 for students. They can be purchased through any chorale member or by calling 941-204-0033. Visa, MasterCard and Discover are accepted.A Christmas Odyssey rings in chorales 25th yearBy BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGERSUN CORRESPONDENT PHOTO PROVIDEDA Christmas Odyssey on Dec. 14 will herald William Dederers rst concert as artistic director of the Charlotte Chorale. SARASOTA COUNTY A Venice man was charged with aggravated child abuse on Thanksgiving in connection with the early November beating of a 15-month-old boy that caused severe brain and spinal injuries, according to the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce. Caleb Wagner, 27, of the 700 block of Groveland Ave., turned himself in last week after a warrant was issued for his arrest, following an investigation that lasted several weeks. According to a report, the toddler had been under Wagners care on the evening of Nov. 11, when he sustained the injuries, but Wagner would later tell both the boys mother and the authorities the child was hurt when he fell off the couch and hit his head on the living room table. But, as the toddler fell unconscious that same evening and was later airlifted to All Childrens Hospital in St. Petersburg, it became apparent to investigators his injuries were not consistent with Wagners story, the report states. Wagner told authorities he was outside the victims home when he heard a thud from inside and found the child between the couch and the wooden living room coffee table. The boy had a bruised face and cut on his lip, but otherwise seemed in good health, Wagner told authorities. Later that evening he went to change the childs diaper and the boys body went limp, prompting Wagner to run next door to ask for his friends help. When the friend arrived, he found the toddler stiff, his eyes rolled back in his head and not breathing, the report states. The child then started breathing again, but emergency personnel were called and transported the child to St. Petersburg for emergency treatment. The victim also suffered seizure-like symptoms en route to the hospital, the report states. Doctors at All Childrens told author ities that the victims injuries were too severe to be tied to falling off a couch. The report states that the boy had surgery to relieve brain bleeding, had severe bruising to both ears, retinal hemorrhaging and a spinal fracture, the report states. Doctors also told authorities the childs injuries were consistent with being thrown against another surface with high-force impact, the report states. Wagner remains at the Sarasota County Jail on $250,000 bond. The childs medical status is unknown, but according to SCSO spokeswoman Wendy Rose, he remains hospitalized. Wagner was additionally charged with one count of child neglect and three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in an unrelated incident on Nov. 13, according to court records. It was a road rage incident in which Wagner allegedly pulled out a handgun on a motorcyclist. He was out on $100,000 bond in connection with that incident.Email: dwinchester@sun-herald.Report: Child severely injured under Venice mans careBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITER WAGNER United Way of Charlotte County is a nonprofit, charitable organization classified as a 501(c)3 by the IRS.

Our Town Page 14 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, December 3, 2013 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS SAVE LIVES. GIVE BLOOD So much of our ability to learn about nature is due to perception. Thus, the large showy butteries receive a lot of attention because they are obvious. On a recent walk at Wildower Preserve, I certainly noticed some very spectacular members of a mimicry complex involving the monarch, the queen, the viceroy and the Gulf fritillary. The monarch and queen feed on milkweeds as caterpillars and retain toxins as adults that protect them. The Gulf fritillary obtains toxins from passionvines, and the viceroy from willow. All are bright reddish orange and black and thus advertise their toxicity to predators and benet from this joint resemblance. The monarch is probably the most recognized buttery by the general public, although few understand about the Muellerian mimicry complex. In contrast, there are large numbers of much smaller butteries that y around us virtually unnoticed. I include myself in the mass of people who have ignored these tiny but beautiful butteries. But I have decided to rectify this ignorance by photographing and identifying these little jewels. However the rst problem is seeing them in enough detail, so you need either some close-focusing binoculars or a good camera. I have recently photographed three of the most common marvelous mites, the Cassius blue, the little sulphur and the fulvous hairstreak. This hairstreak is especially interesting since it is a Caribbean species that became established in the United States, only since its food plant, Brazilian pepper, invaded Florida. Each of these has a number of very similar relatives that complicate the identication, so a good book such as A Swift Guide to Butteries of North America by J. Glassberg is essential. The presence of so many very similar species is a wonderful illustration of the evolution of sibling species from one original ancestor.

Millions of Americans logged on to e-commerce sites Monday to take advantage of deals ranging from free shipping to hundreds of dollars off electronics and half-price clothing on what was expected to be the busiest Internet shopping day of the year. And many of those purchases were made using mobile devices. The spending surge associated with Cyber Monday came after a disappointing Thanksgiving holiday weekend in stores. It also showed that shoppers are increasingly comfortable buying on tablets and smartphones. Joel Anderson, president and CEO of Walmart.com, said 2013 would be the tipping point for mobile shopping. Early results indicated online shopping was up 17. 5 percent compared with the same time last year, according to gures by IBM Benchmark.

Over 2,000 employees with work at this over 1 million-square-foot facility on Cyber Monday.WASHINGTON On perhaps the busiest online shopping day of the year, the Supreme Court refused on Monday to wade into a dispute over New York states taxes on purchases on websites like Amazon.com. The move likely will prompt more states to attempt to collect taxes on Internet sales and ignite a furious battle in Congress involving Internet sellers, brick-and-mor tar stores and states hungry for extra tax revenue. The high court without comment turned away appeals from Amazon.com LLC and Overstock. com Inc., in their ghts against a New York court decision forcing them to remit sales tax the same way in-state businesses do. This could affect online shopping in that state, since for many shoppers one of the attractions of Internet purchasing is the lack of a state sales tax, which makes some items a little cheaper than they would be inside a brick-andmortar store. The National Council of State Legislatures estimated that states lost an estimated $23.3 billion in 2012 as a result of being prohibited from collecting sales tax on online and catalog purchases. Web retailers generally have not had to charge sales taxes in states where they lack a store or some other physical presence. But New York and other High court dodges Internet tax battleBy JESSE J.

Consider it the modern version of a pizza delivery boy, minus the awkward teenager. Amazon.com Inc. says its working on the so-called Prime Air unmanned aircraft project but it will take years to advance the technology and for the Federal Aviation Administration to create the necessary rules and regulations. The project was rst reported by CBS Minutes Sunday night, hours before millions of shoppers turned to their computers to hunt Cyber Monday bargains. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said in the interview that while his octocopters look like something out of science ction, theres no reason they cant be used as delivery vehicles.

DRONE | 4BOSTON Doctors are reporting an epidemic of twins. Nearly half of all babies born with advanced fertility help are multiple births, new federal numbers show. In the ve years since the Octomom case, big multiple births have gone way down but the twin rate has barely budged. Twins arent always twice as nice; they have much higher risks of prematurity and serious health problems. Now fertility experts are pushing a new goal: One. A growing number of couples are attempting pregnancy with just a single embryo, helped by new ways to pick the ones most likely to succeed. New guidelines urge doctors to stress this approach. Abigail and Ken Ernst of Oldwick, N.J., did this to conceive Lucy, a daughter born in September. Using one embryo at a time just seemed the most normal, the most natural way to conceive and avoid a highrisk twin pregnancy, the new mom said. Not all couples feel that way, though.

(AP) A traveling medical technician was sentenced Monday to 39 years in prison for stealing painkillers and infecting dozens of patients in four states with hepatitis C through tainted syringes. I dont blame the families for hating me, David Kwiatkowski said after hearing about 20 statements from people he infected and their relatives. I hate myself. Kwiatkowski, 34, was a cardiac technologist in 18 hospitals in seven states before being hired at New Hampshires Exeter Hospital in 2011. He had moved from job to job despite being red at least four times over allegations of drug use and theft. Since his arrest last year, 46 people have been diagnosed with the same strain of hepatitis C he carries. KWIATKOWSKIHubble Telescope best shot at tracking cometCAPE CANAVERAL (AP) Its all up to Hubble. NASA said Monday that the Hubble Space Telescope is the best bet for guring out whether Comet ISON disintegrated during its brush with the sun last week. A pair of solar obser vatories saw something emerge from around the sun following ISONs close approach on Thanksgiving Day. But scientists dont know whether the spot of light was merely the comets shattered remains or whats left of its icy nucleus. Either way, by now, they say it may be just dust. Over the coming week or two, scientists will keep a lookout for any brightening, which could indicate what, if anything is left. Hubble should put the matter to rest in mid-December, when the comets remains are far enough from the sun for safe viewing.Freight train carrying iron ore derails(LA Times) An investigation was underway Monday into the cause of a freight train derailment in southwestern New Mexico that killed the three people onboard.

The hotel operator said in a regulatory ling that the offering of 112.8 million shares is expected to price between $18 and $21 each. Hilton is offering about 64.1 million shares, and selling shareholders are offering 48.7 million shares. Selling additional shares to banks could put the IPOs proceeds at as much as $2.72 billion. The initial public offering comes as the hotel industry has started to recover over the past two years from its battering during the recession and as the IPO market heats up. Roughly 200 companies have gone public in 2013 as markets hit record highs. If it prices above the middle of the expected range, Hilton will have the secondor third-largest IPO this year.

More than 14 million older or disabled Americans are enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans, an alternative to traditional Medicare that offers medical and usually drug coverage but members have to use the plans network of providers. UnitedHealthcare has begun telling members about the network changes. But there is now less than two weeks before the Dec. 7 deadline for choosing new coverage next year. Timing is crucial since once they sign up, most Advantage beneciaries are locked into their plans for the year. YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) A commuter train that derailed over the weekend, killing four passengers, was hurtling at 82 mph as it entered a 30 mph curve, a federal investigator said Monday. But whether the wreck was the result of human error or mechanical trouble was unclear, he said. Safety experts said the tragedy might have been prevented if Metro-North Railroad had installed automated crash-avoidance technology that safety authorities have been urging for decades. The locomotives speed was extracted from the trains two data recorders after the Sunday morning accident, which happened in the Bronx along a bend so sharp that the speed limit drops from 70 mph to 30 mph. Asked why the train was going so fast, National Transportation Safety Board member Earl Weener said: Thats the question we need to answer. Weener would not disclose what the engineer operating the train told investigators, and he said results of drug and alcohol tests were not yet available. Investigators are also examining the engineers cellphone, apparently to determine whether he was distracted. When I heard about the speed, I gulped, said Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. The engineer, William Rockefeller, was injured and is totally traumatized by everything that has happened, said Anthony Bottalico, executive director of the rail employees union. He said Rockefeller, 46, was cooperating fully with investigators. Hes a sincere human being with an impeccable record that I know of. Hes diligent and competent, Bottalico said. Rockefeller has been an engineer for about 11 years and a Metro-North employee for about 20, he said. Weener sketched a scenario that suggested that the throttle was let up and the brakes were fully applied way too late to stave off disaster. He said the throttle went to idle six seconds before the derailed train came to a complete stop very late in the game for a train going that fast and the brakes were fully engaged ve seconds before the train stopped. It takes about a mile for a train going 70 mph to stop, according to Steve Ditmeyer, a former Federal Railroad Administration ofcial who now teaches at Michigan State University.NTSB: Train going too fast at curve before derailment AP PHOTOCranes salvage the last car from a train derailment in the Bronx section of New York, Monday. Federal authorities began righting the cars Monday morning as they started an exhaustive investigation into what caused a Metro-North commuter train rounding a riverside curve to derail, killing four people and injuring more than 60 others. NEW YORK (AP) Fast-food workers in about 100 cities will walk off the job on Thursday, organizers say, which would mark the largest effort yet in a push for higher pay. The actions are intended to build on a campaign that began about a year ago to call attention to the difculties of living on the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour, or about $15,000 a year for a full-time employee. The protests are part of a movement by labor unions, Democrats and other worker advocacy groups to raise pay in low-wage sectors. Last month, President Barack Obama said he would back a Senate measure to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. Protesters are calling for $15 an hour, although many see the gure as a rallying point rather than a near-term possibility. Its not clear how large the turnout will be at any given location, or whether the walkouts will be enough to disrupt operations. Similar actions this summer had varying results, with some restaurants unable to serve customers and others seemingly unaffected. The National Restaurant Association, an industry lobbying group, called the demonstrations a campaign engineered by national labor groups, and said the vast majority of participants were union protesters rather than workers. The group added that past demonstrations have fallen well short of their purported numbers. Kendall Fells, a New York City-based organizer for Fast Food Forward, said demonstrations are planned for 100 cities, in addition to the 100 cities where workers will strike. He said plans started coming together shortly after the one-day actions in about 60 cities this summer. They understand theyre not going to win from a one-day strike, Fells said of workers. Still, organizers face an uphill battle in reshaping an industry that competes aggressively on low prices, a practice that has intensied as companies including McDonalds Corp., Burger King Worldwide Inc. and Yum Brands Inc., which owns KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell, face growing competition and slow growth in the weak economy. Fast-food workers are also seen as difcult to unionize, given the industrys high turnover rates. But the Service Employees International Union, which represents more than 2 million workers in health care, janitorial and other industries, has been providing organizational and nancial support to the push for higher pay over the past year.Fast-food strikes aim at 100 US cities AP FILE PHOTO In this Aug. 29 photo, protesting fast-food workers demonstrate outside a McDonalds restau rant on New Yorks Fifth Avenue, in New York.

(La Times) Dozens of passengers on a weekend US Airways Express ight have been told to get tuberculosis tests and possible vaccinations after a passenger in a face mask was taken off of the plane in Phoenix. The Maricopa County Department of Public Health was still conducting tests to determine if the passenger was ill, a spokesperson told the Los Angeles Times on Monday. But passengers told reporters over the weekend they were asked to check with their doctors about precautions relating to tuberculosis exposure. Flight 2846, carrying more than 70 people, landed at Sky Harbor International Airport from Austin, Texas, just before 5 p.m. Saturday. Passengers said they were not allowed to get off the plane right away. Rather, paramedics and police ofcers boarded, put a medical face mask on a man and then escorted him off the plane. As we were taxiing, a stewardess came down the aisle, passenger Dean Davidson told KNXV-TV. She had a mask and she instructed the gentleman to put a mask on. The reman said he has tuberculosis, hes contagious, you must see your physicians immediately and you must be tested in three months time, Davidson said. Bill McGlashen of US Airways told reporters that the passenger had been cleared to y when he boarded in Austin, but his status was changed to no-y while the plane was in the air. The warning that came from the CDC did not occur until after the ight had departed so the passenger did not have a red ag in their reservation system or any warning there, McGlashen said. Passengers were provided some infor mation about what had occurred. And we are following up the situation with the CDC and monitoring it with them, McGlashen said. Local ofcials were notied of the case and were testing to see if the passenger does have tuberculosis, a contagious air-borne disease, caused by a bacterium.Passengers on flight told to get TB test Ell! ;s yea a 9 ,`77R'1 1 CRANE M 5i yi,4p ? 11,x' 1Ya er a aAa aAp 1,10

The Sun /Tuesday, December 3, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 3 STATE NEWS TALLAHASSEE (Cox Newspapers) In a legal battle whose social and political shadings have drawn an all-star cast of combatants, the Florida Supreme Court this week will consider a measure asking voters to allow doctors to prescribe marijuana for a range of illnesses. Much of Floridas Republican leadership is being joined by the Florida Chamber of Commerce, the states medical association and law enforcement organizations in ghting the proposed 2014 ballot measure. On the opposite side, leading Democratic donor John Morgan, an Orlando trial lawyer close to former Gov. Charlie Crist, is bankrolling the campaign. Crist, previously a Republican while governor, is now running for the ofce as a Democrat. A former Democratic House speaker, Jon Mills of Gainesville, will make the campaigns case before justices on Thursday. While the politics of the ght are viewed as closely entwined in next years governors race, House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, said his opposition stems only from concerns about how the ballot proposal is constructed. Its misleading to voters, awed and doesnt really tell you just how pervasive marijuana would be in this state, Weatherford told The Palm Beach Post. If this were approved, it would be a nightmare for the Legislature to implement. Mills, however, said opponents, in arguments spanning more than 100 pages of lings in the case, have taken the misguided approach of attacking the concept of legalizing medical marijuana. Theyre certainly free to argue that its a terrible idea, Mills said. But thats not the test that justices will put to the amendment. Instead, justices are expected to conne their focus to determining whether the proposed language of the citizens initiative meets constitutional standards. If justices rule that the proposal involves more than one subject, confuses voters or makes them think theyre endorsing something theyre not, it could be barred from the ballot. Over the years, many petition measures have been tripped up because of problems with a ballot title and summary. For medical marijuana opponents, the Supreme Court review is potentially make-or-break, since it looks virtually guaranteed of winning voter approval if organizers collect enough signatures to get on the ballot. Twenty states and Washington, D.C., have legalized the use of marijuana for treatment of a variety of medical conditions, including cancer, chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrigs disease and epilepsy. Eleven of the states have enacted such laws through ballot measures, similar to that promoted in Florida by the organization United for Care. The campaign has collected 131,655 valid signatures but must get to 683,149 by Feb. 1 to reach the November ballot. A Quinnipiac University poll last month showed 82 percent of Floridians support allowing adults to legally use marijuana if prescribed by a doctor. Support is strong among both parties, with 70 percent of Republicans and 87 percent of Democrats backing the idea. But the measure is seen as potentially driving younger voters and independents to the polls possibly upsetting the Florida Republican Partys campaign calculus for re-electing Gov. Rick Scott, analysts have said. Morgan, whose law rm Crist works for, has poured in $640,000 of the $875,233 raised by United for Cares political committee, People United for Medical Marijuana (PUFMM). Attorney General Pam Bondi, a Republican, earlier issued an advisory opinion that concluded the proposal misleads voters, warning that if approved, it would allow marijuana in limitless situations.Justices to consider medical marijuana on ballot | OTHER HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATE1 dead after boat capsizes in Gulf of MexicoPALM HARBOR (AP) One man died after he and a friend swam to shore when their boat capsized off Pinellas County. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission ofcials say Stephen Chadwick of Tarpon Springs died early Monday. Chadwick and Joseph Citro of Indianapolis were heading to meet friends at an island in the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday afternoon. Less than an hour into the trip the boat sank. The men initially held on to the hull but eventually decided to swim to shore. Investigators say Chadwick lost consciousness as they approached shore. Citro pulled him to shore and performed CPR while a nearby resident called 911.

Her body was found with an estimated 89 slashes inside her apartment in July 2010. The justices are scheduled to hear the case today.Tampa considers new rules on bar closing time TAMPA (AP) The Tampa City Council is thinking about changing bar closing times in a move that could give the city more leverage over businesses that serve alcohol but look the other way when the clientele starts breaking the law. The Tampa Bay Times reports that on Thursday, the council will discuss a draft or dinance that would roll back bar closing times from 3 a.m. to midnight. This would only affect businesses that serve drinks to be consumed on the premises not places like grocery or convenience stores that sell alcohol for carry-out only.Legislator sued after dog bites student in faceTALLAHASSEE (AP) A Florida legislator has been sued over his pet dog biting someone in the face at a restaurant located near the state Capitol. Christopher Kent led a lawsuit last week in Leon County against Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach. Gaetz is the son of Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, and recently held a lengthy legislative hearing over a proposal to repeal the states contentious stand your ground law. Kents lawsuit alleges that Gaetzs dog bit him last May. The lawsuit contends the dog bite left Kent in pain, disgured and with injuries that ultimately forced him to withdraw from law school. He said part of the reason he quit the University of Michigan is that the treatment has forced him to take antibiotics that cause stomach problems.Man fatally shot in Panhandle hunting accidentMILTON (AP) A Florida Panhandle man is dead after a deer hunting accident.

But police say the problem isnt cutting hair without a top. Its cutting hair without a license. The Longmont TimesCall reports 46-year old Suzette Hall was arrested Wednesday night on suspicion of practicing cosmetology without a license. Halls former partner says she advertised $45 topless haircuts online. According to the arrest warrant, the former partner called police about the topless styling because she did not believe this was safe or proper. Police werent able to turn up any Craigslist ads. Halls ex-husband told police she set up shop in Loveland and offered services as Rebel Barber. He told police she applied for a nude license for hairstylists, but no such license exists.ODD NEWS Topless barber charged with unlicensed cosmetology FROM PAGE ONE they insist that at least two embryos be used to boost their odds, and view twins as two for the price of one. Many patients are telling their physicians I want twins, said Barbara Collura, president of Resolve, a support and advocacy group. We as a society think twins are healthy and always come out great. Theres very little reality about the increased medical risks for babies and moms, she said. The Centers for Disease Control and Preventions most recent numbers show that 46 percent of IVF babies are multiples mostly twins and 37 percent are born premature. By comparison, only 3 percent of babies born without fertility help are twins and about 12 percent are preterm. Its mostly an American problem some European countries that pay for fertility treatments require using one embryo at a time. The American Society for Reproductive Medicine is trying to make it the norm in the U.S., too. Its guidelines, updated earlier this year, say that for women with reasonable medical odds of success, those under 35 should be offered single embryo transfer and no more than two at a time. The number rises with age, to two or three embryos for women up to 40, since older women have more trouble conceiving. To add heft to the advice, the guidelines say women should be counseled on the risks of multiple births and embryo transfers and that this discussion should be noted in their medical records. In 2014, our goal is really to minimize twins, said Dr. Alan Copperman, medical director of Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York, a Manhattan fertility clinic. This year Im talking about two versus one. Several years ago I was talking about three versus two embryos. The one-at-a-time idea is catching on. Only 4 percent of women under 35 used single embryos in 2007 but nearly 12 percent did in 2011. Its less common among older women, who account for fewer IVF pregnancies, but it is gaining among them, too. Patients dont really want multiples. What they want is high delivery rates, said Dr. Richard T. Scott Jr., scientic director for Reproductive Medicine Associates of New Jersey, which has seven clinics in that state. Better ways to screen embryos can make success rates for single embryos nearly as good as when two or more are used, he contends. The new techniques include maturing the embryos a few days longer. That improves viability and allows cells to be sampled for chromosome screening. Embryos can be frozen to allow test results to come back and more precisely time the transfer to the womb.BIRTHSFROM PAGE 1 have a range of about 10 miles, which Bezos noted could cover a signicant portion of the population in urban areas. Bezos told Minutes the project could become a working service in four or ve years. Unlike the drones used by the military, Bezos proposed ying machines wont need humans to control them remotely. Amazons drones would receive a set of GPS coor dinates and automatically y to them, presumably avoiding buildings, power lines and other obstacles. Delivery drones raise a host of concerns, from air trafc safety to homeland security and privacy. There are technological and legal obstacles, too similar to Googles experimental driverless car. How do you design a machine that safely navigates the roads or skies without hitting anything? And, if an accident occurs, whos legally liable? Delivering packages by drone might be impossible in a city like Washington, D.C., which has many no-y zones. But technology entrepreneur and futurist Ray Kurzweil notes that technology has always been a double edged sword. Fire kept us warm and cooked our food but also was used to burn down our villages, says Kurzweil. Its fascinating as an idea and probably very hard to execute, says Tim Bajarin, an analyst with Creative Strategies who sees Bezos as an unconventional thinker. If he could really deliver something you order within 30 minutes, he would rewrite the rules of online retail. Amazon has already done that once. In 1995, with investments from family and friends, Bezos began operating Amazon as an online bookseller out of a Seattle garage. Over nearly two decades, Amazon grew to become the worlds largest online retailer, selling everything from shoes to groceries to diapers and power tools. Amazon spends heavily on growing its business, improving order fulllment and expanding into new areas. Those investments have come at the expense of consistent protability, but investors have been largely forgiving, focusing on the companys long-term promise and double-digit revenue growth. The company spent almost $2.9 billion in shipping last year, accounting for 4.7 percent of its net sales.DRONEFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOThis undated image provided by Amazon.com shows the so-called Prime Air unmanned aircraft project that Amazon is working on in its research and development labs. states say that a retailer has a physical presence when it uses afliates people and businesses that refer customers to the retailers website and collect a commission on sales. These afliates range from one-person blogs promoting the latest gadgets to companies that run coupon and deal sites. Amazon and Overstock both use afliate programs. Amazon has been collecting sales tax in New York as it ghts the state over a 2008 law that was the rst to consider local afliates enough of an in-state presence to require sales tax collection. Overstock ended its afliate program in 2008 after the law passed. But each state has its own rules on Internet sales taxes. While this settles the issue for New York state, other states like Illinois have come to different conclusions meaning that some Americans will still get state-tax free Internet purchases from certain websites, while others wont simply because of where they live. And the big Internet sellers arent giving up. After the decision, both Amazon and Overstock said they plan to take their case to Congress in hopes of getting a federal decision on state-level Internet sales taxes that would apply to every state uniformly. States might take courage from this non-decision but they shouldnt, said Jonathan Johnson, executive vice chairman of Overstock. com. Johnson pointed out that they pulled their New York afliate operations in 2008 after that state passed its law, and that other companies ed Illinois after that state passed a similar law. Internet companies will simply operate in states that have laws advantageous to their businesses, Johnson said. Unless all the states choose to do this, I think there will be a strong afliate market somewhere, he said. For example, the Illinois state Supreme Court in October threw out that states taxes on certain Internet sales, saying the so-called Amazon tax violated federal rules against discriminatory taxes on digital transactions. State ofcials are considering whether to appeal their case to the Supreme Court.DODGESFROM PAGE 1 and by Monday had spent around $300 and completed half of his Christmas shopping, including a Barbie doll for his niece and a TV for his mother. I havent shopped for a Christmas present in a store in three years, he said, making purchases from his iPad instead. Its a lot more convenient to be at home and shop. The National Retail Federation, a trade group, predicted that more than 131 million people would shop online Monday, up about 2 percent from last year. Meanwhile, UPS expected to pick up more than 32 million packages on Monday, about a million more than on the same day last year. Research firm comScore forecast Cyber Monday sales of $2 billion, up from about $1.47 billion last year. Online sales account for about 10 percent of total holiday spending, which was projected to grow about 3.9 percent to $602.1 billion for the months of November and December. Anderson predicted that Cyber Monday would be the sites busiest day ever. More than half of Walmart.coms trafc came from smartphones and tablets on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. He expected the same to be true on Monday. is the year online went mobile, Anderson said. Arthur Baynes, 30, was checking out email deals on his smartphone. The travel insurance claims adjuster from Richmond, Va., was looking for a new TV and Blu-Ray games for his younger relatives. When Im looking for something, Ill look it up on my phone and then use the Amazon app on my iPad to buy, he said Monday. Its just easier. I dont have to sit down where my computer is. Cyber Monday comes after retailers failed to boost spending during the holiday weekend. They offered big discounts in early November, and several opened stores on Thanksgiving Day. But the NRF predicted that spending fell for the first time, down 2.9 percent to $57.4 billion, during the four days that ended Sunday. About 81 percent of retailers planned to offer deals specifically for Cyber Monday, according to the NRFs online arm, called Shop. org. The name Cyber Monday was coined in 2005 by Shop.org to encourage people to shop online. After retailers revved up deals for the day, it became the busiest online shopping day in 2010. But since then, retailers have expanded deals, stretching them into Cyber Week or even Cyber Month. This year, retailers such as Amazon and Walmart rolled out online deals beginning in November.MONDAYFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOAmazon.com employee Monica Chavez packs up a box after she wraps the gift at an Amazon.com Fulllment Center on Cyber Monday the busiest online shopping day of the holiday season Monday. LOS ANGELES (LA Times) This is your heart on an energy drink, and its contracting signicantly faster than it was before you opened that can full of liquid stimulant. So says a team of cardiac radiologists who wanted to gure out why energy drinks like Red Bull, Monster, 5-Hour Energy and Rockstar are sending tens of thousands of people to emergency rooms each year, including nearly 21,000 in the U.S. alone, according to a 2013 report from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. A typical energy drink can have up to three times as much caffeine as coffee or soda, according to Dr. Jonas Dorner, a resident at the University of Bonn in Germany and member of the research team. High caffeine consumption can cause rapid heart rate, palpitations, a spike in blood pressure and even seizures or death, he said in a statement. Taurine is also a major ingredient in energy drinks, Dorner said. To get more detail on exactly how energy drinks caused medical problems, Dorner and his colleagues imaged the hearts of 15 men and three women with a 1.5-Tesla MRI scanner. Then the volunteers drank a beverage containing high amounts of caffeine and taurine and had their hearts scanned again. One hour after consuming the experimental energy drink, the researchers found that radiologic measurements of heart strain were signicantly higher than at baseline. Specically, the team measured the peak strain and peak systolic strain rate of the hearts left ventricle, which is responsible for pumping oxygenated blood from the lungs to the aorta and then on to the rest of the body. Both showed changes that were too big to be due to chance. In addition, the team found a small change in peak diastolic strain rate, but it wasnt large enough to be statistically signicant. (In the language of blood pressure, the systolic measurement quanties the pressure in the arteries when the heart muscle contracts and diastolic measurement quanties pressure in the arteries when the heart muscle is relaxed between heartbeats.) The researchers also looked for changes in heart rate and blood pressure before and after volunteers consumed the energy drink, but the readings in both cases were essentially the same, according to the studys abstract. The experimental energy drink contained 400 milligrams of taurine and 32 milligrams of caffeine per 100 milliliters of beverage, and the precise amount given to volunteers varied according to their size. (Each got 168 milliliters per square meter of their body surface area. A typical man has a body surface area of 1.9 square meters and a typical woman has a BSA of about 1.7 square meters, according to studies of British cancer patients.)Energy drinks speed heart contractions, MRIs show as e Q40x9BftO yj j4v

Why has unemployment remained high when the Federal Reserve adds $85 billion a month to the economy? And why has the gross domestic product stayed at with all this new money in the economy? FL, Cleveland Dear FL: It sufces to say the market will continue rising as long as the Obama administration compels the Fed to dump its $85 billion monthly stimulus into the big banks pockets. The administration still believes that this avalanche of free money will encourage banks to lend cheaply to businesses, which ideally use that cheap money to employ more workers to produce more products for the consumer, whose subse quent purchases ideally would improve the GDP. Well, something happened on the road to Grandmothers house, because those trillions of dollars of Fed largesse never reached the consumers pocket. Banks have issued fewer and fewer loans, and credit hasnt gotten cheaper. Investment bankers have been pocketing all the cash, and little has been invested to create jobs. Rather, Wall Streets brokerages and hedge funds have used the stimulus to trade the market, to improve balance sheets, to subsidize iffy business deals for their pals and to pay off underwater loans. And in the process, the Dow Jones industrial average has leapt to new highs. Cheap money has been used to facilitate mergers, foster acquisitions to replace high-interest debt with lower-interest debt, repurchase corporate stock, and acquire apartments, ofce buildings and industrial real estate. A pittance has been used to create jobs, and the stock market has continued to record highs. Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch and JPMorgan Chase have used stimulus money to create initial public offerings, nance leveraged buyouts, and purchase distressed resources and income-producing assets rather than expand employ ment. So the market has risen to new levels, and that rising market, fueled by Wall Streets cupidity, inexorably has spewed more dollars into the velvet purses of the 1 percent of Americans who currently own 95 percent of the countrys wealth. Nobody at the Fed seems to care that our infrastructure is in shambles. Our bridges are crumbling; our seaports and airports need signicant upgrading; our nations water and sewer systems need extensive repair; our rivers and lakes must be sanitized; our hospitals, libraries, schools and major highways require extensive maintenance; and our public transportation systems are inadequate. That is where those trillions should have been allocated. Shovel-ready jobs would quickly increase employ ment and put hundreds of billions in middle-class pockets to purchase goods and services from tens of thousands of small neighborhood businesses. The stimulus hasnt reached Joe the Plumber, Mrs. Grabowski, Uncle Cleve, Sally, Grandma or the Sanchez family. And except for their new cars and recently purchased toys (iPads, smartphones, TVs, etc., bought with borrowed money), Americans are a ruck stuck in the muck. Look about your city. Note the recently closed restaurants, empty car lots, strip center vacancies, shuttered neighborhood businesses, empty ofce buildings and unoccupied homes. The consumer has been porked. His income is lower today than it was before the recession began; he has borrowed the limit from his 401(k) plan; his debt reached record levels this year; Visa and MasterCard are his friends; and he realizes, sadly, that he has diminishing control over his familys future. The middle class is vanishing and becoming increasingly dependent on government assistance (Google Cloward-Piven strategy), which some believe is the governments goal. The new normal for government is to control as many resources as possible and covetously increase its size as more resources (health care, education, workplace environment, wages, gun control, food programs, housing, banking, pensions, mineral rights, etc.) come under its dominance. So with a growing number of resources under control, the government can allocate them to more Americans, who become increasingly dependent upon its dominion. What a wonderfully simple concept. Relieved of our responsibilities, we can cheerfully look toward government for our paternal care and happiness. Everyone votes for Santa Claus. Email Malcolm Berko at mjberko@yahoo.com.The economy and the future Malcolm Berko (Washington Post) Put yourself, this holiday shopping season, in the shoes of a store clerk and his family. Say you earn $11 an hour, which is a bit less than the national average for retail salespeople. And say thats not enough to feed, clothe and house your spouse and kids to your satisfaction, so your wife decides to take a job in the same store, full time. How much of her earnings do you think will actually make it to your joint bank account at the end of the month? The answer is: about a quarter of them. Roughly $3 an hour. The rest of that is lost to income taxes, and to the increased cost of child care, and to lost tax credits and food stamps and other government benets. Thats not much of an incentive for her to take the job, is it? This, two University of Maryland economists argue in a forthcoming paper, is the difcult math for the low-wage working families barely getting by in Americas still-weak economic recovery: Their wages have fallen over the last decade; their anxiety over paying the bills has risen; and if they respond by sending a second spouse into the workforce, the returns to that new job are low. They go to work, and its sort of like a treadmill, said Melissa Kearney, one of the Maryland economists, which is the exact opposite of what youd do if you were trying to design a tax system to incentivize people to go to work. Kearney directs the Hamilton Project at the Brookings Institution. In a new paper for Hamilton, she and Lesley Turner propose changing the tax code to eliminate what they call a secondary-earner penalty on low-income families. Their plan would effectively boost low-wage families disposable incomes by 3 or 4 percent a year or about $1,200 to $1,400 for a family with total annual income of $50,000. The lower amount would come from a revenue-neutral option that pays for that break in the federal budget by reducing other tax credits. The higher amount would come from an option that would cut federal tax revenues by about $8 billion a year.Economists propose tax break for struggling 2-worker familiesNEW YORK (AP) The nal month of a stellar year for stocks began with a thud. All three major indexes closed lower Monday, the rst day of trading in December. Investors sold shares on signs that American shoppers that seemingly inexhaustible fuel of global economic growth may hold tight to their cash this holiday season. Shoppers turned out in record numbers over the four-day Thanksgiving weekend, but plunked down less cash than they did last year. It was the rst decline in Thanksgiving weekend spending since a retail trade group began tracking it in 2006. Investors reacted by selling all types of retailer stocks, from department stores to specialty chains. J.C. Penney, Macys and Target fell about 2 percent each. Urban Outtters dropped nearly 4 percent. This holiday season is not going to be a gangbuster, said Lindsey Piegza, chief economist of Sterne Agee. Retailers are bracing for declining activity from now to the beginning of the year. One big exception to the retailer doldrums was Ebay, which rose 1.6 percent thanks to signs of strong sales from its online auctions. The Dow Jones industrial average has surged 22 percent this year and, if history holds, will add to that gain this month. The Dow has risen in December in three out of every four years going back to 1950, according to the Stock Traders Almanac. The average gain: 1.7 percent. On Monday, the Dow fell 77.64 points, or 0.5 percent, to 16,008.77. The Standard & Poors 500 index dropped 4.91 points, or 0.3 percent, to 1,800.90. The Nasdaq composite fell 14.63 points, or 0.4 percent, to 4,045.26.Stocks fall on disappointing Thanksgiving sales J'T/_ \'t+10

The Sun /Tuesday, December 3, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 7 WORLD NEWS | WORLDManufacturing speeds up in BritainLONDON (Bloomberg) British manufacturing expanded more than forecast in November, indicating the recovery is maintaining its momentum in the years nal quarter. A gauge of factory activity increased to 58.4, the highest since February 2011, from a revised 56.5 in October, Markit Economics said in a report in London Monday. That exceeded the median estimate of 30 economists for a reading of 56.1. The report also showed that demand and payrolls rose last month. The Bank of England raised its forecasts last month and said the recovery has taken hold after economic growth accelerated to 0.8 percent in the third quarter. Thats providing an upbeat backdrop for Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne as he prepares to deliver new projections and scal plans on Dec. 5.Lebanese army taking over in TripoliTRIPOLI, Lebanon (AP) The government authorized the army Monday to take charge of security in Lebanons second-largest city of Tripoli for six months following deadly sectarian clashes by rival sides stemming from the civil war in neighboring Syria. Many fear that the violence in Tripoli only 18 miles from the Syrian border could tip the rest of Lebanon back toward chaos. At least 12 people were killed and more than 100 wounded in the latest ghting that broke out Saturday. The decision by caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati after a high-level security meeting at the presidential palace is meant to allay fears that the ghting was spreading out of control in the northern port city. But the army is weak and has been largely unable to stop the violence. Dozens of soldiers have been killed and wounded in Tripoli this year, often caught in the crossre between rival gunmen.Somalias prime minister loses confidence voteMOGADISHU, Somalia (Bloomberg) Somali Prime Minister Abdi Farah Shirdon was removed from ofce after he lost a condence vote in parliament, following a dispute with President Hassan Sheikh Mohamoud over cabinet appointments. The vote was backed by 184 lawmakers against 64 who voted in favor of Shirdon, Speaker of Parliament Mohamed Osman Jawarey told lawmakers Monday in the capital, Mogadishu. Shirdon said before the vote that he had a disagreement with Mohamoud about appointments to his administration. The president asked me to resign after I had excluded some of the presidents ministerial picks for the new cabinet, he told reporters. These guys never thought that they will be excluded from the cabinet list and that is why the president asked me to resign. Shirdon was appointed as prime minister in October 2012 as part of the 16th attempt to establish an effective central administration in Somalia. Shanghai puts out polluted-air warningSHANGHAI (Bloomberg) Shanghai warned children and the elderly to stay indoors as the level of the most harmful pollutants exceeded more than 10 times the level deemed safe by the World Health Organization. The air pollution index in the nations commer cial hub exceeded 300 as of 1:41 p.m., placing it in the severe range and the highest of six levels, the Shanghai Environmental Monitoring Center said on its website Monday. PM2.5 pollutants par ticles smaller than 2.5 microns in diameter that pose the biggest health risk reached 288.9, more than 10 times the WHO threshold, before falling to 211.5. Heavy pollution may undermine Shanghais plans to attract foreign investment and multinational rms, as the city implements a free-trade zone as part of a broader goal to become a global nancial and logistics center by 2020. VP Biden opens weeklong Asia trip with Tokyo stopTOKYO (AP) U.S. Vice President Joe Biden has opened a weeklong trip to Asia aimed at showing the U.S. is still committed to increasing its engagement and influence in the region. Biden arrived in Tokyo on Monday evening and was being met by Caroline Kennedy, the new U.S. ambassador to Japan. While in Japan, Biden will meet with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Hell also tour a technology company and highlight womens role in Japans economy. Later in the week, Biden will meet in China with President Xi Jinping amid an international spat over Chinas new air defense zone. Biden will wrap up the trip in Seoul, where he will meet with South Koreas president and prime minister. Hell deliver a speech about U.S.-Korean relations and be briefed on the North Korean nuclear situation.Thai police use tear gas to repel protestersBANGKOK (Bloomberg) Riot police red tear gas for a second day at protesters seeking to storm the ofces of Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, as demonstrators threatened to spray raw sewage at ofcers in their efforts to carry out a peoples coup. Yinglucks government hasnt moved to clear the thousands of protesters who have occupied sever al government buildings in the capital Bangkok for the past week. Tear gas was used when protesters tried to remove barricades around Government House, which the administration declared off-limits and has been a target of protests during the past seven years of unrest. Protest leaders have said they want to replace Yinglucks government by Tuesday with an unelect ed council, a deadline that raises the risk of the violence escalating. They may also seek a resolution before Dec. 5, a national holiday marking the birthday of King Bhumibol Adulyadej. KIEV, Ukraine (AP) Facing huge anti-government demonstrations after spurning a deal with the European Union, Ukraines embattled president sought Monday to quell public anger by moving to renew talks with Brussels. The opposition, meanwhile, scrambled to secure enough votes in parliament to oust the Cabinet and try to force an early presidential election, in the biggest unrest in the country since the 2004 Orange Revolution. President Viktor Yanukovych struggled to reafrm his grip on power as thousands of demonstrators besieged government buildings in Kiev, his party suffered defections and three cities in the west of the country openly deed the central government. The protests were sparked by Yanukovychs decision to ditch the political association and free trade pact with the EU, followed by a violent dispersal of a small peaceful rally in Kiev over the weekend. Russian President Vladimir Putin, who strongly opposed the EU deal, denounced the opposition protests in Kiev as pogroms. On Monday, Yanukovych called European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso and asked to renew negotiations on signing the association agreement. He also said in an interview with Ukraines main television channels that he remains committed to European integration, but would like to negotiate better terms for the fragile Ukrainian economy. Yanukovych urged the opposition for calm and dialogue with the government. I am convinced that any kind of peace, even a bad one, is worse than any kind of war, even the best one, Yanukovych said. But his call fell at with opposition leaders who were hoping to summon enough parliamentary votes Tuesday to oust the Cabinet led by Yanukovychs loyal supporter, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, and force an early presidential vote. We need to change the system. There must be a complete reloading of the leadership, world boxing champion turned opposition leader Vitali Klitschko told reporters. It was unclear whether the opposition could muster the 226 votes it needs in the 450-seat parliament to oust Azarov and his Cabinet. The opposition controls about 170 seats, but independents hold 35 more and the governing Party of Regions was shedding support. At least three of its lawmakers quit in protest and one of them, Inna Bohoslovska, previously a vocal government supporter, called on other legislators to leave the party. A top Agriculture Ministry ofcial also resigned Monday.Facing protests, Ukraine leader again courts EU deal AP PHOTOProtestors wave ags rallying at the central Independence Square in Kiev, Ukraine, Monday. Hundreds of Ukrainian protesters have blocked entrances to the government building and called for the ouster of the prime minister and his cabinet. CAIRO (AP) Extensive amendments of the constitution adopted under Egypts ousted Islamist president give the military more privileges, enshrining its place as the nations most powerful institution and the source of real power, while removing parts that liberals feared set the stage for the creation of an Islamic state. The new draft constitution is a key rst step in implementing a political transition laid down by the military after it removed Mohammed Morsi from power. A 50-member panel declared the draft nished Monday, paving the way for a nationwide referendum within 30 days to ratify the document. The military-backed government has heralded the draft charter as a step toward democracy seeking to prove the credentials of the post-Morsi system amid continuing protests by Islamists furious over the coup against the countrys rst freely elected president. The amended document enshrines personal and political rights in stronger language than past constitutions. But rights experts express fears that the political power carved out for the military could leave those rights irrelevant. One key clause states that for the next two presidential terms, the armed forces will enjoy the exclusive right of naming the defense minister, an arrangement that gives the military autonomy above any civilian oversight and leaves the power of the president uncertain. The charter does not say how the post will be lled following that eight-year transitional period. This just paves the way for a bigger role for the army in becoming the main power broker, said Hossam el-Hamalawy, a leading member of the Revolutionary Socialists movement.Egypt draft charter sets powers for military nvite All to your Special Holiday Celebration by Advertising the Date and Time in This Special Feature.Feature Page Publishes Sunday, December 16, 2012 Each ad is 3-1/4 wide x 2 The Cost is $39 per ad.

The rocket blasted off from southwestern China at 1:30 a.m. Monday, a day after Indias maiden Mars orbiter left Earths orbit on its journey to the red planet, in what some observers characterize as Asias new space race. Chinas rocket is expected to deposit the rover in the right eye of the Man in the Moon in mid-December, specifically targeting a large volcanic crater known as the Sinus Iridum or Bay of Rainbows, thought to be relatively free of large rocks. If successful, China will be the third country to achieve a soft land ing on the moon, after the United States and Russia. The last soft landing on the moon was the unmanned Soviet Luna 24 rover, which collected soil samples in 1976. We will strive for our space dream as part of the Chinese dream of national rejuvenation, said Zhang Zhenshong, director of the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, according to the Xinhua state news agency. Zhang was echoing the nationalist rhetoric of President Xi Jinping, who has made the Chinese dream one of his key motifs. The rover, called Yutu in Chinese, is named after a Chinese myth about a woman named Change who swallowed magic pills and took her pet rabbit to the moon, where she has been living as a goddess ever since. The rover will set up a telescope on the moon for the first time, survey the moons geological structure and look for natural resources through a radar installed on the rover, Xinhua reported. Ultimately, China aims to follow the United States by landing a man on the moon although it has yet to set a specific target date for that mission and to continue toward Mars. Chinas space exploration will not stop at the moon, Sun Huixian, a senior engineer in the space program, told Xinhua. Our target is deep space. India, Japan and Russia are also giving serious thought to manned missions to the moon sometime in the 2020s. Chinese scientists and experts frame the space program partially in terms of the nations constant quest for energy and raw materials, talking about helium-3 and solar power as potential energy sources on the moon, as well as its reserves of titanium, rare earths, uranium and thorite. Now nobody is exploiting the resources because the economic costs are too high, Ouyang Ziyuan of the Chinese Academy of Science told Xinhua. This is a possibility in the future, and humans should know what is there on the moon. Chinese officials denied they were in competition with India or other nations and have offered to cooperate with other countries. The U.S. Congress has banned NASA from using federal funds to cooperate with China or Chinese companies since 2011. Some U.S. scientists say the Chinese mission is not likely to add much to what is already known about the moon. In a recent article in Aerospace America magazine, unidentified U.S. scientists said the Chinese rover design was similar to NASAs Mars Exploration Rover and that, apart from the Chinese radar system, many instruments were similar to those carried by previous U.S. and Russian space missions. However, the mission does represent a breakthrough in Chinas space program, and it shows the country is making progress toward landing a person on the moon. Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon, has urged NASA to cooperate with China, perhaps collaborating one day to land a person on Mars.China launches Jade Rabbit rover to moon AP PHOTOIn this photo released by Chinas Xinhua News Agency, the Long March 3B rocket carrying the Change-3 lunar probe blasts o from the launch pad at Xichang Satellite Launch Center, south west Chinas Sichuan Province, Monday.

Washington (San Francisco Chronicle) Food stamps, the nations premier poverty program, can buy just about anything that passes for edible on a supermarket shelf: chips, soft drinks, candy and all the other items known in common parlance as junk food. This fact, in tandem with epidemic obesity that aficts the poor and racial minorities more than other Americans, lurks beneath the brawl dividing Congress over whether to slash funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Having quadrupled since 2001 to almost $78 billion a year, the program feeds 1 in 7 Americans. House Republicans have passed legislation that would cut $39 billion over a decade, which Democrats are trying to block in negotiations over the farm bill. What few on either side want to touch are the conclusions of a report last year by Oakland public health activist Michele Simon, who called food stamps the the largest, most over looked corporate subsidy in the farm bill and urged Congress to enact nutrition standards that would limit purchases of unhealthy food with government assistance. Her report set off a backlash among advocates for the poor that proved so divisive that many public-health groups refused to take a position on the issue. Some groups do not want even to discuss nutrition standards as they struggle to stave off budget cuts in the food stamp program, known as SNAP nationally and CalFresh in California. Its a very uncomfortable debate, said Michael Dimock, president of Roots of Change, a Bay Area group that advocates for sustainable and local agriculture. People are forced into making purchases of food with little money, and it feels like another injustice for them to be told what they can or cannot buy. At the same time, logically speaking, its a very difcult situation for us as a nation to be supplementing peoples purchase of unhealthy food. The issue also divides the right. The food industry ercely opposes nutrition standards. House Republicans adopted almost the entire food stamp plank of the conservative Heritage Foundation work requirements for able-bodied adults, drug testing and big funding cuts except for a ban on junk food. Almost 70 percent of adult Americans and 1 in 3 children are overweight, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Nutrition standards debated for food stamp program Seattl e 1 J/ .35/26 WinnipegHD / 11U3 f Ottawa`34123 MontrealZn' 36/48llings I/20 Dole r, 738/344 4* 1_ l ) New YorkSanFrancisco 51/40,56/42 Chicagoj t { i/ r f Denver 52/42 Washington3618 W41J.t t ao f r, r OlJ ts, Kansas CityA a l = -sansf t)Loa AngelesAl6WS6V/5 rr 1 lk I_ EIPe,I r .HoustonTChihuahua 81/6770/48 ,O MWniMontwm' .89/614390 50I100 150 200 300 50010 rTrees I o I ",Weds .Maldseoabuts low moderate NO veryhighAccu Weather.comRIn rUlkw_

STORRS, Conn. Shabazz Napier hit a jumper from the free throw line as time expired to keep No. 12 Connecticut undefeated with a 65-64 victory over No. 15 Florida on Monday night. Napier, limping on a left ankle he hurt during a four-point play with 33 seconds left, escaped a trap around 30 feet from the basket and got off a wild shot that missed but was tipped blindly back by DeAndre Daniels. Napier grabbed the ball and let go a left-handed jumper that went through as the horn sounded and set off a deafening cheer from the sellout crowd of 10,167 at Gampel Pavilion. Napier finished with 26 points on 9-of-15 shooting including making 5 of 8 from 3-point range. The Huskies (8-0) and Florida (6-2), which had a five-game winning streak snapped, battled down the stretch exchanging the lead six times in the final 6 minutes.

Mike Glennons first multiple turnover game in eight weeks certainly didnt help the teams chances during a lopsided loss to Carolina that stopped a three-game winning streak, however coach Greg Schiano noted Sunday that the lack of a consistent running game and an inability score touchdowns instead of settling for field goals also continue to undermine the Bucs (3-9). Despite winning three of four following an 0-8 start, Sundays 27-6 loss to Panthers assures Tampa Bay of finishing with a losing record for the third straight year. The Bucs, who havent made the playoffs since 2007, have posted their two lowest yardage totals of the year the past two weeks 229 in a victory over Detroit and a season-low 206 against the Panthers, who have the NFLs No. 1 defense.

The No. 1 Seminoles expect to play for the BCS national championship if they beat Duke in ACC title game on Saturday in Charlotte, N.C. The just-ended rivalry week ranks among the best that college football has seen in forever. Now comes the hangover. Welcome to whining week, that time of year when everybody from the university president to the second-string long snapper for the program most likely to be spurned by the Bowl Championship Series tries his hand at lobbying. First in line was Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs, whose 11-1 Tigers were ranked No. 3 Sunday night in the next-to-last BCS standings of the season, behind unbeatens Florida State and Ohio State, respectively. Jacobs didnt even wait to see the ofcial result; he knew what was coming. And so he began howling some 24 hours earlier, just moments after Tigers running back Chris Davis put his foot down in the end zone Saturday night to seal the Tigers wacky upset over mighty Alabama. Right after the game, Jacobs actually said it would be a disservice to the nation if Auburn were to win next weekends Southeastern Conference title against No. 5 Missouri and still be denied a chance to play for the national championship at the Rose Bowl on Jan. 6. Given a night to sleep on it, he doubled down. This is inarguable, Jacobs said Sunday. I think it would be, quite frankly, un-American for us not to get a chance to go to Pasadena.

Sure, Florida State players reveled in their 37-7 win against Florida. Defensive lineman Jacobbi McDaniel hoisted a gator head in the air, while linebacker Telvin Smith cut a piece of turf from the middle of the eld at Ben Hill Grifn Stadium, a memento that surely will be placed in FSUs sod cemetery. But it was business as usual for the Seminoles about 30 minutes after wrapping up their 12-0 regular season. Were denitely not nished, FSU defensive end Mario Edwards Jr. said after the game. We denitely have bigger things that we want to do. Were just keeping it all in perspective. That was before Alabama fell to Auburn, making room for the Seminoles to earn their rst No. 1 ranking since 2000. The No. 1 Seminoles (12-0, 8-0 ACC) face No. 20 Duke (10-2, 6-2 ACC) in the ACC championship game Saturday at 8 p.m. at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. A win would likely give FSU a spot in the BCS National Championship Game. No. 1 has nothing to do with it. What we have to do is play well against Duke, coach Jimbo Fisher said. Thats our goal. We arent worried about where were ranked, what were doing, itll all take care of itself.

BOYS SOCCER: North Port 4, Port Charlotte 0Bobcats keep rollingPORT CHARLOTTE North Port High Schools boys soccer team is making a big mark so far this season. The Bobcats rolled over host Port Charlotte 4-0 Monday night to raise their overall record to 6-1 and their District 4A-11 record to 5-1. Junior Jacob Sumaljag led the way for the winners with three goals, one on a breakaway early in the second half. Our forwards were able to split their defenders, Sumaljag said. And I was able to go right up the middle. I dont think this was our best game of the season, but we did pretty well overall. North Port coach Gerard Gregoire agreed with his players initial assessment. Not so good, Gregoire said when asked how he felt his team played. We ran too much with the ball. We should have played the ball more, particularly on a big eld like this you need to play the ball more. Sumaljag, who has eight goals this season, scored his rst of the night late in the rst half off an assist from Alex Martin. Just before halftime, Port Charlottes Sandrae Williams just missed a goal when he red a shot over the bar. After Sumaljags second goal on a breakway, the Bobcats Luis Zubiaga scored a goal on a 10-yard shot off a pass from Gaspar Margaryan with about 15 minutes left in the contest. Sumaljag nished off the scoring with about six minutes left in the match, coverting a pass from Martin.

But she doesnt hesitate to go off course. At the urging of friends, the Lake Suzy resident starting competing in running events in January. She had been working out at the gym, especially on the elliptical. Runnings a lot harder than walking, the 35-year-old said with a laugh. Gowans said she usually runs three to ve miles a day, though she has been going longer distances because shes training for a half marathon. She trains with a team of athletes from The Foot Landing, the Punta Gorda store specializing in running and walking products. The store offers a 2or 3-mile walk or run Wednesday nights, so she runs in that. She bikes and swims with a group on Thursdays. She started tackling adventure runs during the spring. Gowans said she recently completed a Tough Mudder course of about 13 miles in 3 hours. The obstacles are hard, she said. Some obstacles are pretty scary. The last obstacle of that race required participants to navigate through a series of suspended electrical shocks, she said. You dont know which ones are charged, said Gowans, who indeed received a shock. Theyre everywhere. The ice bath is difcult, too. You jump in ice water, and it takes your breath away, she said. She was a part of a four-women team that nished the Nov. 23 Tippecanoe 5K trail run in Port Charlotte. She said the stiffest challenge there was a tall wall participants had to scale using a rope. Gowans has done triathlons in addition to 5Ks and adventure runs. She nished the Englewood Triathlon in July in 1 hour, 39 minutes, the Venice YMCA Triathlon in August in 1:44. Her venture into racing hasnt gone without wear on her body. She was idle three weeks in October because of back issues. After treatment from a chiropractor, she resumed training. Gowans placed 14th among 36 (29:34) in the womens 35-39 age group in Thursdays Turkey Trot 5K. Her next big test is a January half marathon in Key West. Hopefully I nish, she said.Share an accomplishment with Barbara Boxleitner at BKLE3@aol.com.Running takes Gowans to new experiencesBy BARBARA BOXLEITNERSUN CORRESPONDENT REC SPORTSTough Mudder the latest race for area woman Florida cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy will enter the 2014 NFL Draft. Purifoy, a member of Florida head coach Will Muschamps rst signing class in 2011, played in 37 games over three seasons. I have had a great three years at the University of Florida, but at this time I think its best for me and my family to pursue a career in the NFL, Purifoy said. Coach Muschamp and Coach [Travaris] Robinson have put me in a position to take the next step. I know there is still a lot of work for me ahead, but I appreciate what everyone at Florida did to get me to this point. The 6-foot, 185-pound Purifoy is projected as a rst-round pick by several NFL draft analysts, including ESPNs Todd McShay, who has Purifoy ranked the fth-best defensive back in the draft and the 26th overall pick in his latest mock draft. Prather shares SEC award: Floridas Casey Prather and Mississippi States Craig Sword were named co-SEC players of the week. Prather averaged 23 points, 4.5 rebounds and two assists while leading the Gators to victories over Jacksonville and Florida State last week.

The Sun /Tuesday, December 3, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 DOLPHINS AT STEELERSWHO: Miami (6-6) at Pittsburgh (5-7) WHEN: Sunday, 1 p.m. WHERE: Heinz Field, Pittsburgh TV: CBS RADIO: No local affiliate NFL: MiamiDolphins still in the mixDAVIE The Miami Dolphins had a record of 3-3, and then 4-4, and then 5-5. Each time they lost the next game. Now theyre 6-6, although defensive end Olivier Vernon sees it another way. Its like the season has started over, Vernon said. Its 0-0, and we are going to try to grind out. With enough grinding, maybe the Dolphins can climb above .500. They have a chance Sunday at Pittsburgh (5-7). The Dolphins will try to build on their best performance of the year, a 23-3 road victory Sunday against the New York Jets. The win brought the Dolphins season back from the brink, and now theyre tied with Baltimore for the sixth-best record in the race for the AFCs six playoff berths. To end a franchise-record streak of four consecutive losing seasons, Miami cant continue its recent pattern of losewin-lose-win-lose-win. Weve talked about how the performance level on the eld has to be better in December, and part of that now is consistency, coach Joe Philbin said Monday. Were not going to reinvent ourselves from a schematic standpoint. We should have an identity by now of things we do well. Weve got to be more consistent. With four games left, the margin for error is small perhaps nonexistent. We are in the playoff hunt, and we have to win every game, said linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, who knows the routine because he played on Baltimores Super Bowl championship team a year ago. But its very important to not look too far down the road. Players probably shouldnt, but fans can. Three of the Dolphins nal four opponents are under .500, and the toughest remaining game against AFC East leader New England is in Miami. Despite an early-season four-game losing streak, followed by a bullying scandal that threatened to sabotage the season, the Dolphins still have a shot at their rst playoff berth since 2008. We are ghters, Vernon said. We love having everyone against us. A loss to New York likely would have doomed the Dolphins postseason chances, but instead they dominated, outgaining the Jets 453-177. Both totals were the best of the season for the Miami. The offense showed uncharacteristic balance to control the ball for nearly 39 minutes, Miamis highest total in three years. It starts with the run game the offensive line doing a great job, the backs hitting the holes when theyre there, getting the tough yardage, quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. A season-high 36 rushing plays kept the Jets No. 1-ranked run defense off balance. Tannehill also threw for 331 yards, the second-highest total in his 28 career starts, and he was sacked only once a season low even though Miami again played with a patchwork offensive line. Tannehill is nally starting to mesh with Mike Wallace, who in the past two games has 12 catches for 209 yards and two scores, tripling his touchdown total for the season. Third-year tight end Charles Clay had a career-high seven catches for 80 yards against New York, and Brian Hartline added a season-high 127 yards receiving on nine catches.By STEVEN WINEASSOCIATED PRESSMiami chasing playoff berth after win lifts team to 6-6 AP PHOTOMiami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace celebrates after scoring a touchdown as New York Jets cornerback Kyle Wilson trails during the second half of Sundays game in East Rutherford, N.J. The Dolphins won 23-3. NFL NOTEBOOK NEW YORK Redskins coach Mike Shanahan spoke Monday with the NFLs director of ofciating after the league said Sunday nights crew made an error on Washingtons nal drive. The league said ofcials should have stopped play and eliminated confusion about the down and distance at the end of the Giants 24-17 victory at Washington. I talked to Dean earlier today, he gave me a call and just went over the scenario, Shanahan said, referring to Dean Blandino, who oversees NFL ofciating. Obviously they made a mistake and you live with it. With New York leading by seven points just after the two-minute warning, a catch by the Redskins Pierre Garcon on second-and-5 was spotted short of a rst down at the Washington 45. Referee Jeff Triplette signaled third down. But the head linesman, with the Redskins in a hurry-up offense, incorrectly motioned for the crew to advance the chains, which caused the down boxes to read rst down. In this situation where there is obvious confusion as to the status of the down, that play should have been stopped prior to third down and the correct down communicated to both clubs, Blandino said Monday in a statement. This should have occurred regardless of the fact that Washington had no timeouts and it was inside two minutes. Struggling Smith remains Jets starting QB: Geno Smith is staying put as the New York Jets starting quarterback. His hold on the job, however, is tenuous at best. Rex Ryan confirmed that hes sticking with the rookie despite Smiths struggles in the last several games. Smith wasnt surprised when he was told the morning after Sundays 23-3 loss to Miami by quarterbacks coach David Lee that he would start this weeks home game against the Oakland Raiders. Smith was benched in favor of Matt Simms at halftime of the Jets 23-3 loss to the Miami Dolphins following another brutal performance. The rookie was 4 for 10 for 29 yards with an interception and an 8.3 quarterback rating in two quarters. Trestman not backing away from field goal decision: A day later, Chicago Bears coach Marc Trestman wasnt backing down. He insisted he made the right move when he decided to go for a winning field goal on a second down in overtime at Minnesota on Sunday even if the decision did not pan out. Trestman called on Robbie Gould for a 47-yarder that sailed wide right rather than run another play or two, and the Bears suffered a crushing 23-20 loss. Steelers see no intent in Tomlins wayward walk: The NFL is still deciding how to discipline Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin for his not-so-fancy footwork. New video, though, shows Tomlin inching closer to the field before Baltimore kickoff returner Jacoby Jones nearly collided with him in last Thursdays 22-20 win by the Ravens.BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSNFL: Redskins officials messed upAP PHOTOSeattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett returns a fumble for a touchdown against the New Orleans Saints in the rst half of Monday nights game, which was was not completed in time for this edition. Go to yoursun.net for NFL coverage. ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Denver Broncos coach John Fox returned to work Monday from what he called the longest bye week in history. Really, the hardest part was watching the team play and not being there, Fox said upon his return just four weeks after undergoing open-heart surgery in North Carolina. Fox had hoped to put off aortic valve replacement surgery until after the Super Bowl but fell ill while golng with friends near his offseason home in Charlotte on Nov. 2 during the Broncos bye. He underwent surgery 48 hours later. Fox missed the toughest stretch of the season. During his absence, defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio guided the Denver Broncos (10-2) into rst place in the AFC West by winning three of four games. They won at San Diego and swept Kansas City, and in Del Rios words, came within an eyelash of going 4-0. They lost 34-31 in overtime at New England two weeks ago. Fox has no restrictions, but its likely that hell coach from the booth and not the sideline against Tennessee next weekend. Executive Vice President John Elway presented Del Rio with a game ball after Denvers 35-28 win at Kansas City on Sunday. It was special to have John Elway recognize the things I did, Del Rio said, but I basically want to say that is just a representation of what we all did. It wasnt about me; it was a collective effort of all the players, coaches, trainers, equipment guys that had to pull together in Coach Foxs absence. So now we get to welcome him back and hand him over a team that has taken care of business and is on top of the division right now. Although Fox ofcially returned to work Monday, hes been in daily contact with Del Rio and in regular contact with captains such as quarterback Peyton Manning for the last three weeks. He kept track of the team on his iPad playbook, watching cut-ups of games and practices and helping formulate game plans. Other than that I was in another state, (it was) much the same as what I would have done in my ofce at Dove Valley, Fox said of his involvement as he recovered from surgery. Fox and his wife, Robin, ew home on team owner Pat Bowlens jet on Wednesday and at Del Rios suggestion he visited with the team on Thanksgiving morning. He also Skyped with his team during a team meet ing a couple of weeks ago. Fox seemed like his old self Monday during an unusually long chat with reporters. Despite a slightly scratchy voice at times, he seemed more energetic than he had been before his surgery and the color in his face seemed better, too. As my surgeon said, I had a valve that was the size of a pinhead and now its the size of a 50-cent piece. I feel tremendous, he said. Obviously, the doctors feel good about me getting back to work. I actually would have preferred to be back sooner, but there was a pretty hard deadline of four weeks post-surgery and I honored that and here I am.Broncos Fox back at work after surgeryBy ARNIE STAPLETONASSOCIATED PRESS NFL Im disappointed in all of us, Schiano said, bemoaning missed oppor tunities that might have given his team a chance to keep the game close. Theyre playing at a high level right now, yet I thought there were plenty of opportunities, especially early in the game to kind of set the course of the game where wed be able to make it a fourth-quarter game, the second-year coach added. We didnt take advantage of it. Cam Newton set up one of his two touchdown passes with a 56-yard run and also ran for a third TDs as the Panthers routed the Bucs for the second time in six weeks. Glennon, meanwhile, was 14 of 21 for 180 yards in his ninth start. The third-round draft pick failed to throw for at least one touchdown for the first time as a pro and, with Tampa Bay trailing 7-6, also lost a fumble that stopped a drive inside the Carolina 10. He did some things (Sunday) that he hasnt done. I think part of it has to do with the defense. He was trying to make something happen, Schiano said. He and I have sat down already and discussed that circumstances can never dictate behavior. You have to go out and do your thing. It doesnt mean that the play calls dont change based on certain (situations), but our core beliefs on quarterback play dont change based on circumstance, and a little bit of that happened. For the second straight week, the rookie received little help from a rushing attack thats bogged down since posting three of the four highest totals of the season during a stretch in which the Bucs lost on the road at Seattle and beat Miami and Atlanta at home. A week gaining 22 yards on the ground at Detroit, the Bucs rushed for 66 yards on 20 carries and were 1-of-10 on thirddown conversions against the Panthers. Schiano doesnt take solace in the fact that the Lions and Panthers both rank among the league leaders in run defense. Its the NFL, weve got to find a way to score points and move the ball against whatever defense were playing, the coach said. We need to find better ways to help these guys, and then we need to execute better. Schiano reiterated his confidence in Glennon, whos thrown for a Bucs rookie-record 1,962 yards and 13 touchdowns with just five interceptions in 290 passing attempts. Im really encouraged with Mikes development, Schiano said. I think hes a guy who will rebound. Schiano also said linebacker Jonathan Casillas suffered a knee injury and likely will need seasonending surgery.BUCSFROM PAGE 1 4 _lw' 7J/r................................................................................................................................................................

Duncan finished with 23 points and 21 rebounds as San Antonio dominated the middle. Atlanta had all five starters score in double figures led by Jeff Teague with 19 points. The Hawks trailed 98-94 when Paul Millsap made a 3-pointer over Diaw with 17.5 seconds remaining. Manu Ginobili then made a pair of free throws for the Spurs, but Teague drained a 3 over Kawhi Leonard to tie it at 100 with 4.7 seconds left.BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSWashington improves to 4-1 without injured guard Beal AP PHOTOOrlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo, right, shoots under Washington Wizards center Marcin Gortat in the rst half Monday in Washington.

Rene Bourque and Max Pacioretty also scored for the Canadiens (16-9-3). Carey Price made 27 saves. Steve Bernier and Michael Ryder scored for the Devils (11-12-5), and Martin Brodeur stopped 13 shots. Ryder tied it at 2 with a slap shot that got past Price at 4:42 in the third. But Galchenyuk responded ve minutes later, picking up his seventh goal after Alexei Emelins shot landed on his stick. It was New Jerseys rst regulation loss at the Bell Centre since 2008. Sustained pressure by the Devils in the Canadiens zone led to Berniers second goal in as many games, putting New Jersey in front at 11:13 of the rst period. The Quebec City native was left all alone in front of the net and beat Price on his blocker side by deecting an Anton Volchenkov shot from the point. The Canadiens tied it at 8:49 of the second when David Desharnais made a no-look, behind-the-back pass to Bourque, who scored his sixth goal. With Dainius Zubrus in the box for interference, Pacioretty made it 2-1 with a power-play score at 16:49 off a cross-ice pass from Andrei Markov. The game was the rst of a home-and-home series against the Devils. The teams face off again on Wednesday in New Jersey. Jets 5, Rangers 2: In New York, Olli Jokinen broke a tie with 7:18 left in the third period and then netted an insurance goal moments later to lift Winnipeg over the New York Rangers and rookie goalie Cam Talbot. Jokinen, a former Rangers player, also assisted on Devin Setoguchis tying goal in the second period. John Albert also scored in his NHL debut and Blake Wheeler added an empty-net goal in the final minute for Winnipeg, which got 35 saves from Ondrej Pavelec in the fourth-game of the Jets season-high, six-game road trip (3-1). Wild 2, Flyers 0: In St. Paul, Minn., Jason Pominville and Charlie Coyle scored 57 seconds apart early in the third period to break open a defensive standoff and lift the Minnesota Wild to a 2-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday night. The teams had combined for only 28 shots when Pominville collected Mikko Koivus pass in the crease and pushed it past a helpless Ray Emery. NHL ROUNDUP for Connecticut, which was outrebounded 34-26, but was able to make up a size difference with its strong guard play on the perimeter. This was Connecticuts first game this season against a ranked opponent. Floridas previous loss was in its only game against a ranked team, Wisconsin. Casey Prather had 19 points and seven rebounds for the Gators, while Patric Young had 17 points and seven rebounds. Scottie Wilbekin, playing in his third game of the season after being suspended for the first four, had 15 points but he injured an ankle with 3:01 to play, was taken to the locker room and never returned. After Wilbekin left Young took over, scoring the Gators next seven points, two baskets on his hook shot and another on an offensive rebound. That made it 62-59 Florida with 1:18 to play. Connecticut missed two 3-point attempts but got the rebound on both. Napier took a 25-foot jumper that swished and he was fouled by Dorian Finney-Smith. Napier stayed on the floor for about a minute, holding his left ankle. Connecticut coach Kevin Ollie called a timeout so Napier could stay in the game and take the free throw. He made it to give the Huskies a 63-62 lead with 33 seconds left. Michael Frazier II drove to the basket to give the Gators a 64-63 lead with 17 seconds remaining. The programs only other meeting was in the 1994 Sweet 16, when the Gators won 69-60 in overtime on the way to the Final Four.NO. 12 UCONN 65, NO. 15 FLORIDA 64FLORIDA (6-2) Yeguete 1-6 1-2 3, Prather 8-13 3-5 19, Young 6-10 5-7 17, Wilbekin 6-14 1-2 15, Frazier II 3-5 0-0 7, Finney-Smith 1-3 1-1 3, Walker 0-0 0-0 0, Kurtz 0-0 0-0 0.

(AP) It could take four to six weeks before authorities can determine how a man died after an altercation in the parking lot of Arrowhead Stadium during Kansas Citys game against Denver, police said Monday. The man was identied as Kyle A. Vanwinkle, 30. An examination of Vanwinkles body did not show obvious signs of trauma, Kansas City police spokesman Darin Snapp said in an emailed statement. Snapp said a man who owned a Jeep and his son returned to the vehicle during Sundays game and found a man who did not belong inside, which led to a ght between the owner and Vanwinkle. Snapp said investigators are awaiting autopsy and toxicology reports before deciding whether Vanwinkles death was the result of a crime. A Birmingham, Ala., woman charged with killing a fellow Alabama fan was angry that the victim and others didnt seem upset over the Crimson Tides loss to archrival Auburn on Saturday, said the sister of the slain woman. Adrian Laroze Briskey, 28, was charged Monday with murder in the killing of 36-year-old Michelle Shepherd. It was unclear to investigators whether the violence was motivated by the game. Barry Bonds has paid $4,100 in penalties stemming from his obstruction of justice conviction two years ago. A filing in U.S. District Court in San Francisco said Bonds paid the money Oct. 2. The $4,000 fine goes to a crime victims fund and includes a $100 special assessment. The seven-time NL MVP was convicted of one obstruction count by a jury that found an answer he gave was criminally evasive during 2003 testimony before a grand jury investigating the distribution of performance-enhancing drugs.HOCKEYU.S. Hall of Fame inducts Weight, Guerin: Doug Weight recalls his father putting him on skates at the age of 2 because he could barely walk due to a child hood condition that relegated him to wearing braces on his legs. Four decades later, the two-time Stanley Cup champion, three-time Olympian and four-time NHL All-Star was inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame. He share the honor with former teammate Bill Guerin, a Stanley Cup champion, three-time Olympian and four-time All-Star. Carolina Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos, former college coach Ron Mason and Cindy Curley, one of the pioneers in womens hockey, also were inducted.SOCCERWorkers return to stadium after accident: Construction workers returned to the stadium that will host the opening match of the World Cup, five days after an accident killed two workers and renewed questions about Brazils readiness to hold the tournament. Small groups of stonemasons, metal workers and others trickled into the Itaquerao Stadium in Sao Paulo, expressing determination to finish work ahead of the Cup opener on June 12. New England defender Kevin Alston was voted Major League Soccers comeback player of the year after returning from treatment for leukemia, and Portlands Caleb Porter was named coach of the year.AUTO RACINGRPM hires crew chief for Almirola: Richard Petty Motorsports hired Trent Owens to crew chief Aric Almirola in 2014. Owens is a longtime Nationwide Series crew chief and the nephew of Richard Petty. His hiring for the No. 43 Ford is his first full-time crew chief job in the Sprint Cup Series. Michael Waltrip Racing hired Jeff Burton as a test driver, with the possibility of running a partial Sprint Cup schedule in 2014. The team will field the No. 66 Toyota for Burton at Las Vegas in March. Additional races for Burton could be scheduled later. DETROIT The Detroit Tigers traded starting pitcher Doug Fister to the Washington Nationals for three players. The deal, announced Monday night, also sent inelder Steve Lombardozzi, left-hander Ian Krol and minor league lefty Robbie Ray to Detroit. The AL Central champion Tigers have been busy reshaping their roster this offseason. They traded slugger Prince Fielder to Texas and also let All-Star shortstop Jhonny Peralta leave as a free agent for St. Louis. The 29-year-old Fister was 14-9 with a 3.67 ERA last season. The righty was 32-20 in two-plus seasons with the Tigers and has pitched especially well in the postseason. Fister joins a talented Nationals rotation that in cludes Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann and Gio Gonzalez. The Tigers and utility player Don Kelly agreed to terms on a one-year contract that avoids arbitration. Kelly played six positions for Detroit last season while hitting .222 with six homers and 23 RBIs. As closing in on deal for lefty Kazmir: A person with knowledge of the negotiations says free-agent left-hander Scott Kazmir is closing in on a $22 million, two-year contract with the Oakland Athletics. The new contract would be pending a physical. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hadnt finalized the deal or formally announced interest in Kazmir. The 29-year-old Kazmir went 10-9 with a 4.04 ERA in 29 starts and 158 innings last season for the Cleveland Indians. It marked his return to the big leagues for the first time since making one poor outing for the Angels in 2011, which followed a 9-15 performance in 2010 for Los Angeles. With the pending acquisition of Kazmir, the As have filled a rotation spot with a veteran starter as they had hoped to do. That means the two-time defending AL West champions wont necessarily continue to pursue a new deal for 40-year-old 18-game winner Bartolo Colon. Around the majors: Catcher Dioner Navarro and the Toronto Blue Jays agreed to a two-year, $8 million contract. Navarro batted .300 with a career-high 13 home runs and 34 RBIs in 89 games for the Chicago Cubs last season. The 2008 All-Star has not played more than 89 games in a season since 2009 because of injuries. The Pittsburgh Pirates acquired catcher Chris Stewart from the New York Yankees for a player to be named. Stewart hit .211 with four home runs and 25 RBIs in a career-high 109 games for New York in 2013. He threw out 17 runners, the fifth-highest total in the American League. Infielder Brendan Ryan agreed to a $5 million, two-year contract to remain with the Yankees in a deal that includes team and player options for 2016. He hit .220 with one homer in 17 games and finished the season with a .197 average, four homers and 22 RBIs. Pittsburgh Pirates minor league prospect Evan Chambers died in his sleep over the weekend. He was 24. Pirates general manager Neal Huntington had no additional details, but he said in a statement the team was shocked and saddened by Chambers passing.Tigers deal Fister to WashingtonBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MLB NOTEBOOK

Page 6 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, December 3, 2013 AP PHOTOAuburns Chris Davis returns a missed eld-goal attempt 109 yards to score the game-winning touchdown as time expired in Saturdays game against Alabama in Auburn, Ala. The Tigers won 34-28, knocking o the previously top-ranked Crimson Tide. COLLEGE FOOTBALL: AuburnCatch a Tiger by the tailAUBURN, Ala. Dont call the Auburn Tigers lucky. The third-ranked Tigers have navigated a season of close calls and amazing nishes to make it into Saturdays Southeastern Conference championship game against No. 5 Missouri. They balk at any notion that this is a lucky team, though. I wouldnt say its luck because weve put in the work and weve denitely done the work to be able to be where were at, Auburn fullback Jay Prosch said on Monday. Its not luck, but I do think there are some crazy things that happened. The craziest have been a deected Hail Mary to beat Georgia and Chris Daviss 109-yard return of a missed eld goal on the nal play to upend No. 1 Alabama in back to back games. Those plays made that touchdown with 10 seconds left to beat Mississippi State and the game-winner with 1:19 remaining against No. 22 Texas A&M, plus some late defensive stands, seem downright mundane. Against Georgia, that was just a miracle, Auburn tailback Corey Grant said. It was a great play. I kind of look at (the Alabama) game, that was more of a coaching standpoint to put Chris back there. Coaches with their job, they should know stuff like that. That was a great deal of coaching from our coaches to put Chris back there in that situation with that happening. Gus Malzahns Tigers (11-1) have proven theyre awfully good just by being in position to defeat teams like the two-time defending national champion Crimson Tide. A win over Missouri (11-1) coupled with a loss by either No. 1 Florida State against No. 20 Duke or No. 2 Ohio State versus No. 10 Michigan State, and Auburn could be playing for a national title. It wouldnt be the strangest occurrence of Auburns season. Its just amazing that this keeps happening, Prosch said. Malzahn doesnt think its happenstance that his rst Auburn team is managing to pull out tight games. I think it is unique and it is rare that you have teams that believe they are going to win no matter how bad it looks, he said. They still have bright eyes and belief in each other and that is what our guys have found a way to do. We talked all week before last weeks game that we have to get it close to the fourth quarter and we will win the game. And they believed it and they found a way to do it. He delivered a similar message before the Georgia and Texas A&M games, among others. Malzahn cites his teams resume when asked what hed say to someone calling Auburn lucky. I think any time you win 11 games in this league the best league in college football you have to be a pretty good team, Malzahn said. Teams that nd a way to win, that is rare. Our team has found different ways to win and I am very proud of them. Missouri receiver LaDamian Washington watched the Georgia game during a bye week. OK, the game is over, Washington recalled thinking. HarveyClemons is going to make the interception. When I see that, I paused for ve seconds. I couldnt believe it. It just goes to show the magic that the Auburn team has going for them right now. Magic. Maybe thats it. Or something else. Some people call it luck, magical, Auburn offensive tackle Avery Young said. I say were blessed. Thats all I have to say about it.By JOHN ZENORASSOCIATED PRESSNo. 3 Auburn credits more pluck than luck for wins SEC CHAMPIONSHIPWHO: No. 5 Missouri (11-1, 1-1) vs. No. 3 Auburn (11-1, 7-1) WHEN: Saturday, 4 p.m. WHERE: Georgia Dome, Atlanta TV: CBS COLUMBUS, Ohio There was a time when Ohio State players could look forward to a break after trading bruises with archrival Michigan. Not anymore. At least, not this year. No sooner did the second-ranked Buckeyes escape Michigan Stadium with a 42-41 victory thanks to Tyvis Powells last-minute interception on a two-point conversion pass at the goal line than they were immersing themselves in preparation for yet another make-orbreak game. The Big Ten championship game against No. 10 Michigan State the only top-15 team Ohio State has played in a school-record 24-game winning streak under coach Urban Meyer looms on Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. I think they are sore, Meyer said on Monday. I have got to be smart this week in what we do. As far as energy and focus and throw in the fact that its nals week at Ohio State we have to be really efcient with these guys. No. 2 in the BCS standings, the Buckeyes need to win to hang on to their spot in the BCS national championship game. Since 1943, Ohio State has not had an opponent between Michigan and a bowl game. But with the Big Ten going to a two-division format three years ago, it was only a matter of time until the Buckeyes were busy again the week after their annual grudge match with Michigan. A year ago, the Buckeyes also went 12-0, but were not permitted to play in the Big Ten title game or a bowl because of NCAA sanctions from violations that occurred on former coach Jim Tressels watch. Its not as if they dont have some things to work on this week. The defense sur rendered 603 yards to Michigans previously erratic offense. Devin Gardner completed 32 of 45 passes for 451 yards and four touchdowns including three in the fourth quarter as Michigan pulled even after trailing by 14 points. Ohio State doesnt have to worry about losing guard Marcus Hall. The Big Ten ofce on Monday decided not to suspend any players for their actions in the wake of a ght in Saturdays game, instead issuing a public reprimand to Hall and the coaching staff. Hall was ejected for coming onto the eld to participate in the skir mish. As he was leaving, he angrily threw his helmet to the ground and made an obscene gesture to Michigan fans.For Buckeyes, no breatherBy RUSTY MILLERASSOCIATED PRESS COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Ohio StateAP PHOTO/DETROIT FREE PRESS, JULIAN H. GONZALEZOhio State coach Urban Meyer joins his team in singing the schools alma mater after their 42-41 win against Michigan. BIG TEN CHAMPIONSHIPWHO: No. 10 Michigan St. (11-1, 8-0) vs. No. 2 Ohio St. (12-0, 8-0) WHEN: Saturday, 8 p.m. WHERE: Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis TV: FOX Steve Sarkisian was named the head coach at Southern California on Monday, leaving Washington to return to the Trojans storied football program for another run at national titles. Two days after USCs regular season ended with a home loss to UCLA, Trojans athletic director Pat Haden replaced interim coach Ed Orgeron with yet another assistant coach from Pete Carrolls championship-winning era at the school. The 39-year-old Sarkisian is a Los Angelesarea native who went 34-29 in ve seasons at Washington, rebuilding a decimated program into a bowl contender. He is the permanent replacement for Lane Kifn, his former co-offensive coordinator at USC under Carroll. He will be introduced at a news conference today. Around the nation: Wake Forests Jim Grobe announced his resignation, saying its probably good for the program to have some new energy, some new direction. The 61-year-old was 77-82 in 13 years, sharing the program record for wins with D.C. Peahead Walker. The Big Ten Conference issued a public reprimand of Nebraska football coach Bo Pelini and fined the school $10,000 for Pelinis comments about the officiating in the Cornhuskers game against Iowa last week. Michigan coach Brady Hoke said he expects QB Devin Gardner and all of his assistant coaches to return in 2014. Illinois announced coach Tim Beckman will be back in 2014 after a second consecutive losing season. Seminoles headline all-ACC teams: Quarterback Jameis Winston was among 17 players from top-ranked Florida State to make one of the all-ACC teams. Seven Seminoles made the first team in voting by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. PAGE 2: 6 Miami players named all-ACC PAGE 5: Full all-ACC list in ScoreboardSarkisian takes Southern Cal jobBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS COLLEGE FOOTBALL NOTEBOOKWake Forests Grobe resigns perfect time to remind him that stiing competition was exactly why guys like Jacobs created the BCS and its previous incarnations in the rst place. Nearly two decades ago, the power brokers running college footballs major confer ences hijacked the sports postseason to make certain the choice spots in the big-money bowls went to their friends. If occasionally that meant choosing one friend over another, well, no need to take it personal; thats just how business works. To be fair, Auburn has plenty to argue about. The Tigers just beat topranked Alabama, winner of three of the last four national championships, and three other top-ight teams. Neither Florida State nor Ohio State built anywhere near as impressive a resume this season, in large part because both belong to conferences the ACC and Big Ten that look weak when stacked against the SEC. And somewhere in the Jacobs mind, no doubt, is the memory of how a 13-0 Auburn team was left out of the 2004 championship game that matched similarly unbeaten, but much higher-wattage Southern California and Oklahoma. The BCS gentlemens agreement that holds a one-loss team doesnt leapfrog an unbeaten in the rankings provided both are from power conferences will likely stick next week, even if Florida State squeaks by No. 20 Duke and Ohio State does the same against No. 10 Michigan State. Come this time next year the argument will be moot, because the BCS disappears and a fourteam playoff will make its long-delayed debut. The debate, if there is one, will be over whos No. 5. The last decade of results showed theres rarely more than four legitimate national title contenders. But wouldnt it be a tting last-gasp for the BCS to make its exit as controversial as its beginning? Imagine if Florida State and Ohio State both lost next weekend; suddenly the title game would between the AuburnMissouri winner and who else? Alabama. How satisfying would that be, at least beyond the geography of the SEC?LITKEFROM PAGE 1opponent: Eliminate the clutter. Its a process. The opponent has no face. These Jimbo-isms are often repeated by his play ers. While the cliches can be construed as jargon and dismissed as coachspeak, Fishers method has worked. The Seminoles have won every game by at least 14 points. Were not even playing at our prime, I dont even want to talk about what its going to take to beat us, FSU quarterback Jameis Winston said. Like Coach Fisher says, every week is a faceless opponent. We dont care who we play. We can play the New England Patriots. Its faceless. FSU now faces a clear path to Pasadena. Its only remaining obstacle is an upstart Duke program. FSU center Bryan Stork, who has used vulgarity in the past to describe his negative thoughts about the BCS standings, was one of the players to grab a piece of Floridas turf after last Saturdays win. Spreading the gospel of his coach, Stork quickly put the celebrating behind him. By the time he left the stadium, Stork was already looking ahead to, although he stressed not past, Duke. You can never be satised, ever, Stork said. Its our time. Hanging over the team as an investigation into sexual assault allegations against Winston. State Attorney Willie Meggs said Monday he wants the process to be thorough and wont let football dictate when he will wrap up his inquiry. He reiterated he wont let FSUs football schedule or Winstons Heisman Trophy possibilities deter mine when his investigation will be nished. Timothy Jansen, Winstons attorney, said Monday he is communicating daily with his client, who wants it to be over.
