Charlotte Sun Every day, thousands drive by a small house on U.S. 17, a couple miles east of downtown Punta Gorda. They may not notice the wood front porch where a green parrot named Gaspar greets guests, Hello. They may not notice the picnic table out front, and they probably dont see the large deck in the back of the 1920s house. They might notice the house because of all the cars parked around it (too many for a nor mal house). And as they start to pass it, they may spot the sign out front and say, Oh, thats Peace River Seafood. Stop the car but not immediately. You dont want to cause a pileup. Instead, carefully make a U-turn and safely pull into Peace River Seafood for lunch or dinner. Peace River Seafood is one of the reasons you moved here. Its a local, one-of-a-kind crab house you dont nd in Ohio, Iowa or Pennsylvania. Its a sit in your shorts, outside at a picnic table, in the winter kind of place (and then take a photo, email it or post it on social media, and rub it in to your northern friends whose toes wont warm until May). The staff is as friendly as expected at a southern crab house, where they care for you as if you were a guest in their own home. And, in a way, you are just that especially when you eat inside like I did on a recent windy day. Kaitlyn Legg welcomed me to a table nestled in a corner next to a replace in a room that likely once served as a living room, sitting room or parlor (whatever you like to call it). Its not a large room, but enough for about a dozen or so to eat comfortably. Theres another room between the parlor (I feel fancy saying parlor) and the back deck area for additional indoor seating. You immediately feel at ease, just as you might at a grandmas or an aunts house where conversations in the kitchen and among staff (like family members) drift into the parlor. The interior is lled with nauticalthemed items including my favorite sign, Quit-cher crabbin. I also liked the clever boat-turned-shelves that holds condiments. Amid the crab wine bottle holder and numerous crab sculptures are hundreds of signed one-dollar bills, which started after owner Kelley Beall remarked if I had a dollar bill, Id be a millionaire for ev ery time a guest announced they come from Maryland, a state known for its crabs. While Peace River Seafood has the feel of grandmas house (if she had a thing for crabs), dont expect grandmas ne china. You will be served with disposable plates, bowls and cups, which didnt bother me (since I once ate crawsh out of a plastic bag in a womans yard in Jamaica). As much as I love the homey ambiance, lets face it: People come here for food especially the blue crabs and stone crabs (when in season). Lately, Peace River Seafood has been offering $20 for all-you-can-eat blue crabs, which lled many tables during my recent visit. This is where I make a confession: I dont like getting dirty while I eat in public. I usually eat ribs with a fork. I rarely eat corn on the cob outside my house. Kaitlyn helped guide me through the menu until I selected the crab cakes, which may be the best way to try blue crab meat and do so in a clean way. First of all, these crab cakes are so large they should be served with candles for birthdays. Second, they tasted even better than they looked. I ate too much to order dessert, but Id like to during my next visit to Peace River Seafood, 5337 Duncan Road (U.S. 17). Christy Feinberg is a senior writer/ columnist for the Sun. You can email her at cfeinberg@sun-herald.com.This crab house feels like home ChristyFEINBERGCOLUMNISTSIDE DISH A recent state appeals court ruling declaring that teacher-effectiveness scores are a matter of public record has local school ofcials concerned. Charlotte County Superintendent Doug Whittaker said the scores do not accurately represent teacher effectiveness, and if publicized could adversely affect the school system and demoralize educators. Using the scores to compare teachers would be like ranking the doctors in Charlotte County based on the death rate of their patients. If youre a pediatrician, youre going to be in great shape. If youre a gerontologist, youre toast, Whittaker said earlier this week. The scores are calculated with the Florida Department of Educations value-added model, a calculation that is supposed to determine a teachers effectiveness by comparing students Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test scores in a given year to their scores in other years. However, Whittaker said the scores derived from the DOEs model arent valid because they rely on FCAT scores. The mathematical calculation and value-added formula is a good formula, Whittaker said, but applying it to a test that has questionable validity (the FCAT) makes its calculation invalid. Bryan Bouton, president of the Charlotte Florida Education Association the local teachers union said another problem with the value-added models reliance on FCAT scores is the majority of teachers dont teach a subject covered by the test. This, he said, means that most teachers scores are based on students they didnt teach. Bouton, who teaches TV production at Port Charlotte High School, explained that because his subject is not tested in FCAT, my value-added score is based on the schools overall grade. So if all the English teachers and math teachers in PCHS do their job, then my score goes up. The DOEs value-added Teacher scores become public recordBy IAN ROSSSTAFF WRITERSCORES | 16CORRECTION: The 24th Annual Lighted Boat Parade in Charlotte Harbor is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 15. A column in Sundays paper contained the wrong date. PUNTA GORDA Like many families across the country, Mark and Tina Corrie are sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner, giving thanks for their recent good fortune. There is the part-time job that Tina just found, her new pair of shoes and the bicycles they just received. And there is something more. We are very thankful because every morning we get to breathe life, Tina Corrie said. And I thank God for that. But the Corries are different from most families. For the past eight years they have been homeless, living in a tent in the woods near the Bread of Life mission in Punta Gorda. Things have been pretty rough, said Corrie, who the previous night withstood temperatures in the low 40s. Still, were pretty blessed. We also got blessed with blankets today. The gifts are from the church they regularly attend, First Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church. But now they are at the Life Center of First United Methodist Church in Punta Gorda, joining hundreds of others for roast turkey and all the trimmings at an event they discovered on their morning bike ride. This is incredible, said Chris Wilkens, a church member and event organizer. Our waiting area is full and we have a line out the door. Oh, my gosh. This is the 14th year First United Methodist Church has hosted a Thanksgiving meal, and not just for the homeless. Folks who live alone or just want to be out are welcome to share in the feast. If they come, its like sitting down at their dining room table. They eat with friends or new friends, said Wilkens, noting that last year more than 700 meals were served.

And thats why RV Merchandising Inc. soon will celebrate its 37th year in business. I think its more the personal touch, Sink said of his success. Were not a big company. I dont sell new units my business is repairing them. I have more of a personal relationship with my customer than the big companies do, because theyre in the business of selling. Im in the business of repairing. One of the things that has changed is that we have a Florida dealers license now, Sing said. I can go to an auction and buy a motor home and sell it to somebody a whole lot cheaper than the big companies do. Im really particular about what I take in, Sink said, I dont take junk, I dont sell junk. When it leaves here. I want the folks who bought it to be happy when theyre camping. Giving his customers special care has helped keep him in business. If you take something in for a littlebitty job, they charge you a minimum of an hour. I dont. If it only takes a quarterhour, we only charge a quarter-hour. And the customers appreciate that. The reputation of RV Merchandising is hugely important to Sink. Word of mouth is my biggest asset. Right now, Im trying to maintain what weve got and keep the integrity that weve got. My turnaround time for parts is a day or two, not two weeks. And thats a big help. I want to keep the reputation going that were honest and do a good job we care about our customers. Before buying RV Merchandising, Sink worked for 15 years as a manager with Ferrell Gas in Louisiana and Florida. During that time Sink met the previous owners and found out they were retiring. They wanted to sell, Sink said. Its always been a small, family-owned business and they wanted to keep it that way. Sink said his business does work on insurance claims, rebuilding roofs, body work and all sorts of interior jobs. They also do axles, including bearings, brakes and seals, and install hitches and base plates for towing a car behind an RV. In addition to repairs, Sink also sells propane tanks to be filled for grilling or heating. Were all about the quality of the wor k we do, he says. Its got to be right.

Smith, 73, of Punta Gorda, Fla., passed away Friday, Nov. 15, 2013, at her residence. Arrangements are by Paul Schelm Funeral Home in Lake Suzy, Fla.ENGLEWOOD, NORTH PORT, DESOTONo deaths were reported in Englewood, North Port or DeSoto Thursday. | OBITUARIES For most people, the holidays are joyous occasions to celebrate with family and friends. But for those who have lost a beloved family member, friend or pet, the holidays can be especially difcult. If the grief is fresh, holiday cheer can seem like an affront and celebrations may under score how alone people feel, wrote Dr. Michael Miller, editor in chief of the Harvard Mental Health Letter. Kays-Ponger and Uselton Funeral Home and Cremation Services is holding its annual Holiday Remembrance Service to help people who are grieving feel less alone. This years service will be held Dec. 14 at 2 p.m. at the Edison State College theater. Marcella Brown and other local musicians will perform at the service. Speakers will offer words of comfort and inspiration. The services planners invited writers from the Peace River Center for Writers to submit inspirational poems they have written. Three winners will share their poems during the service. The remembrance service, which had been held for several years at the Cultural Center, was moved to Edison this year. Also new this year is the invitation to those who have suffered the loss of a pet, who many times are as beloved and as missed as human family members. The service is open to any one in the community, not only to those we have served, said Stacy Jones, community relations director for Kays-Ponger and Uselton. At the end of the service, butteries will be released. Many people associate butteries with life after death due to the metamorphosis they undergo, and many believers testify to the appearance of butteries after their loved ones death. Even for nonbelievers, they are a comfort and joy to watch. Kays-Ponger and Uselton will hold another remembrance service in Englewood on Dec. 13 at 7 p.m. at the Green Street Church. It will be a candlelight service. Since it is a night service there will be no buttery release. Reservations are not necessary to attend either service. Edison State College is located at 26300 Airport Road in Punta Gorda. The Green Street Church is located at 416 W. Green St., in Englewood.

The Sun /Friday, November 29, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 7 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. Before entering the Beach Cottage Gifts and Crafts shop in Englewood, a rst-time customer might think it is small. Dont be fooled, however, because crammed inside that diminutive building are some real Florida treasures. And what better time to browse for such unique gifts than on Saturday Small Business Saturday when shoppers can earn additional savings by doing that gift buying at any of the participating stores in the area. Small Business Saturday, sandwiched between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, was created by American Express in 2010 to raise awareness for the small-business owner in the U.S. during the busiest shopping weekend of the year. Last year, consumers spent an estimated $5.5 billion, according to American Express, and this year looks just as promising. By registering their American Express card, people can earn $10 of statement credit for every $10 or more they spend at a qualifying small business location Saturday. Robin Phillips, owner of Beach Cottage Gifts and Crafts, said the small-business owners in Englewood put themselves on the map by offering the best prices possible. We know that people go to big-box stores this time of year, she said. So, I try very hard to sell different items made by local crafts men and artisans. Many people are on a budget, so many of my items are sold in the $5 to $20 range. We can satisfy any price range. Phillips boutique features more than 40 Florida artists everything from jewelry to wood carvings to glassware. She is a participating store with American Express and also offers 20 percent off coupons for additional savings. I have hand-painted clothing by Donna Jones, she said, plus, lots of other in-store specials. Youll nd things here you wont nd at Bealls. At my shop, expect the unexpected. In addition to the sales offered by brick and mortar small shops, more than 30 merchants in Punta Gorda, North Port and Port Charlotte are participating in the Shop Local Discount Card that provides additional discounts for shoppers. The program is sponsored by Transaction Point, and the cards are on sale for $20, with $18 of that donated to AMIkids Crossroads. AMIkids Crossroads is a local nonprot organization whose goal is to ensure that foster-care boys are unied with a loving forever family or have the tools to live independently by providing kids and potential placement families with an integrated continuum of care, according to their website. The card will allow local merchants to establish loyalty rewards programs that will result in increased sales and, at the same time, educate shoppers about AMIkids Crossroads. Shoppers in the market for health and beauty products that are affordable, made with natural ingredients, and make great gifts, should visit Lolablue. The North Port-based business was started by Jamie Lovern as a one-woman show and has mushroomed to a popular family-owned enterprise. This Saturday with every purchase we will give away free a travel-size soap sample, she said. Customers can choose any scent as long as it is in stock. Its just a little treat to say thank you for coming in and shopping with us. Closed during the week, Lolablues warehouse is open on select Saturdays to the public. Her company offers fusion soaps, lip balms, perfume oils, travel-size soap, essential oils, and gift sets. Her products can be found in many spas, salons and boutiques in Charlotte County. All of our items are made locally, Lovern said, with lots of love. This holiday season we will be offering many stocking stuffers and gift sets. After visiting your favorite small business to buy those one-of-a-kind gifts, take a break and patronize one of the local eateries. In Punta Gorda, the newly opened Deenas Delectables not only serves up breakfast and lunch but many of the baked goods are made right on the premises. Owner Deena Romer is one of the 30-plus businesses in Charlotte County that supports the Shop Local Discount Card to assist AMIkids Crossroads. We will be selling chocolate gift sets, chocolate-covered bon bons, chocolate-covered Oreo cookies, and chocolate-covered fortune cookies she said. We also sell our signature coffee cake, scones, cookies and brownies. They are all great Christmas gifts. Romer is expanding her bakery and adding a refrigerated bakery case. There is a 10 percent discount on everything in the store for customers who show their discount card. Its a pretty good deal, she said, and it goes toward a good cause. Shoppers needing a break from the hustle and bustle of the bigbox stores, and who are searching for that unique, hard-to-nd gift, can shop small on Saturday save themselves some hardearned cash and donate to a local charity.Big reasons to shop small By AL HEMINGWAYSUN CORRESPONDENTGIFT IDEAS FROM SMALL BUSINESSESBeach Cottage Gifts and Crafts 198 Green St. Englewood 941-214-0367 Hand-painted shirt sets, $49 Hand-blown glass by Rich Fizer, $28-$130 Handmade copper artwork by Al Delavega, $20-$70 Pottery by Nanette Hopkins, $10-$69 Woodcarvings by James Sears, $60-$250 Ribbon necklaces, $12 each, 2 for $20 Lolablue 1090 Innovation Ave. Suite A-112 North Port 941-564-9207 Holiday Gift sets from $10 Peppermint Pyramid Gift Set, $10 Stocking Stuffers Lip balm, $4 Sugar scrubs, $6 Body whip lotion, $6 Deenas Delectables 122 Nesbit St. Unit 114 Punta Gorda 941-347-7608 Chocolate Gift sets, $6-$28 For more information on the Shop Local Discount Card, visit www.transactionpoint. net/local.

But the harbor is what it is today because of the ring of mangroves, tidal marshes, wooded uplands and pine atwoods that sur round it. The preservation of vast stretches of those critical habitats stands as one of the most signicant environmental achievements in the entire state. The Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center, a nonprot organization founded in 1987, operates living dioramas through which residents, visitors, scientists and schoolchildren can better understand how the health of the harbor depends on how we treat the land around it. The centers staff and volunteers offer educational tours and school eld trips of its properties off Burnt Store Road and at Cedar Point Environmental Park, along with hands-on adventures in learning at Ponce de Leon Park in Punta Gorda. Fundraising is a constant challenge. Charlotte County is a generous supporter, as are the City of Punta Gorda and Charlotte County Public Schools. But corporate funding is key and grants from Waste Management, Kitson & Partners, Smugglers Foundation and others are the groups lifeblood. CHEC will recognize another one of those corporate partners, The Mosaic Company Foundation, with a ceremony acknowledging the foundations $40,000 grant on Wednesday during its Young Children and Nature Adventures Program. This funding will help CHEC continue its education programming, which is so important to teach residents and visitors about the area and to help them develop an understanding of human impacts on local systems, said CHEC CEO Jim Thomson. Representing The Mosaic Company will be communications manager Kaley Miller, who has been a tireless champion of nonprots in Charlotte County. We applaud her and her companys efforts and congratulate the entire CHEC family of staff and volunteers for their work on behalf of Charlotte Harbor. Domestic violence is a perplexing, yet far too frequent, crime for law enforcement. It is a crime that is difcult to prosecute when victims are too afraid to come forward, and too many people who have suspicions or knowledge tend to look the other way not wanting to get involved. We applaud law enforcement ofcials in the state of Florida for a monthlong crackdown on offenders that resulted in the arrest of 5,544 suspects across the state by 33 agencies. Charlotte and Sarasota counties participated in Operation Safe Families, Oct. 13 through Nov. 9. Charlotte ofcers arrested 76 people including 34 for domestic violence and 22 for associated warrants while serving 13 writs of bodily attachment for those failing to pay child support. Sarasota County arrested 45 in all and served 11 writs of bodily attachment. The crackdown should send a strong message to offenders, or potential offenders. We call on not only law enforcement but every citizen to do their part to stem a crime that not only claims lives but tears apart families and leaves physical and emotional scars that sometimes never heal. If you suspect domestic violence in Charlotte County, call Citizens for Abuse and Rape Emergencies 24-hour hotline at 941-627-6000 or the Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center in Sarasota at 941-365-1976. | LETTER SUBMISSION POLICYPut the dogs in their place First-timer liked Pitts column Slow process keeps business from opening The invasion nearly complete Write your congressmanEditor: I can see how people love their pets, but it is time to stop the practice of people with pet dogs taking them into stores and restaurants.

When questioned what they were doing, they replied, Invading the USA. The captain asked, Just the four of you? Their response was, We are the last of the invasion force; the other 12 million were already here. Yes, immigration is an issue. The president of Mexico spoke to Congress saying that our immigration policy toward Mexico was harsh. Of course, Mexico encourages this invasion by not doing enough to prevent its citizens from becoming illegals in this country. After all, these 12 million would be a drain on the Mexican economy, on the other hand they send home over $15 billion a year to their relatives back home. Why would Mexico try to stop this foreign aid? Why pander to illegal Mexicans while other nationalities, that want to legally come to America, must wait years in their home countries and pay for the privilege of entering our country legally? Our president and Congress are again discussing a path to citizenship for illegal Mexicans. Is it only Mexicans? Whats wrong with this picture? We have been raised that there is a right way and a wrong way to do things. The reward should be for doing it the right way. Why should there be a reward for breaking the law?

The populist governor is Floridas Rick Scott. In the Church of the Free Market, the governor sits in the rst row, on the aisle, gazing rapturously up at the pulpit. As CEO of a for-prot hospital company, he disparaged nonprot hospitals for not paying taxes. As a new governor in 2011, he thought deregulated property insur ance sounded like a swell idea. Decit spending in Washington? Take a cue from Florida, where we balance the budget (because the state constitution requires it.) A problem in government? Solve it the way a business would. In June 2012, when Congress passed and President Barack Obama signed legislation to reform the National Flood Insurance Program, Gov. Scott didnt peep. If he was following the issue, he probably would have approved. In mid-2012, the program was running at an $18 billion decit, largely because of Hurricane Katrina. The Biggert-Waters Act was designed to reduce subsidies to property owners in oodprone areas and make the program more stable. After Hurricane Sandy, the decit hit $25 billion. Two months ago, however, Floridians began learning what it would cost them for the government to run the ood insurance program more like a business. Some new premiums were four, six, even nine times higher. Other Floridians wouldnt pay the jacked-up rates themselves, but the increase would hit those who bought their homes. Talk about a sale-killer. Gov. Scott heard the complaints, and began jawboning for a delay in the rate increases. So did Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., who had voted for the bill, and Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., whose name was on the bill. Mississippi, where rate increases also were hitting hard, sued the Federal Emergency Management Agency. FEMA supervises the ood insurance program. Gov. Scott pledged Floridas support for the lawsuit, and blamed President Barack Obama for having signed the bill and not offering relief. The governor has two gripes one political, and one legitimate. Lets look at both. Its clear that Gov. Scott will run as much against President Obama as he will against Charlie Crist. In this off-year election, Republicans want to run against the re-elected but unpopular Mr. Obama, while Democrats want to run against the even more unpopular Republican Party. Blaming Mr. Obama for the ood insurance panic ts nicely with Gov. Scotts narrative. Problem is, the BiggertWaters Act didnt pass by itself. Congress approved the veyear extension of the ood insurance program as a package, with the transportation bill and a one-year non-x of the student loan program. The dysfunctional Congress had to vote on all three to get home for summer recess and campaigning. The vote was 373-52 in the House and 74-19 in the Senate. Plenty of Republicans went along. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., did not, but he was voting against all spending bills. In addition, the ood insurance bill has some good provisions. Why should all policyholders, for example, keep subsidizing properties that ood repeatedly? The bill eliminates those subsidies. Should vacation homes get subsidized rates? The bill also eliminates those. If the political case is weak, however, Gov. Scott has a legitimate gripe about whether FEMA is implementing the changes properly. In theory, the agency updates ood maps and raises rates where new mapping shows a higher risk. But how are the maps In flood insurance blame game, tensions are rising Palm Beach PostRandy Schultz SCHULTZ | 9 ark0c1 NcsJournal,pRR Credors.crn zn3IID IJ4dh 1-rv

The Sun /Friday, November 29, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINTcompiled? Why are the rates so much higher in certain areas? Deputy Florida Insurance Commissioner Richard Koon said in an inter view that FEMA should take a more measured approach. This seems a little dramatic. Its also much more dramatic in some parts of Florida than others. The Ofce of Insurance Regulation reported on how the key portion of the ood insurance act Section 205, or Reform of premium rate structure would affect each city. In Delray Beach, it would hit just 425 of 8,278 policies. In Palm Beach Gardens, just 18 of 3,304. In Stuart, 65 of 1,178. The biggest effect locally no sur prise is in Palm Beach, on the barrier island. In St. Petersburg, though, the change affects nearly half of the citys 38,322 policies. In Dunedin, not far from St. Pete, the change hits more than half of the 4,447 policies. The same goes for New Port Richey, north of St. Petersburg in Pasco County. Mr. Koon also points out that Florida pays $4 into the ood program for every $1 the state gets back in claims. Mississippi, he says, pays in just 20 cents for every $1 back to the state. Are Floridians being socked disproportionately than residents of other states? For all the anger in Florida, there is no guar antee that Congress will agree to the delay Gov. Scott and others want. The governor does look selective and hypocritical, since he brags about making Florida more nancially stable and criticizes the state-run property insurer, Citizens, for keeping its rates articially low. But Gov. Scott just got mugged, and hes looking for the rst cop he can nd. Randy Schultz is editor of the editorial page for The Palm Beach Post.

Rick Scott appointed me to the board of directors of the Early Learning Coalition of Floridas Heartland (ELCFH) as the private sector member. Little did I know, at the time of my appointment, the vital role played by the 31 Early Learning coalitions covering the state of Florida, yet alone the four counties covered by the Heartland Coalition Charlotte, DeSoto, Hardee, and Highland. Overall, some 400,000 children participate in Early Learning coalitions across Florida. That gure includes those children in School Readiness programs and voluntary prekindergarten. Let me explain. The School Readiness programs are designed to help underprivileged children get brought up to speed when they are ready to start schools. By underprivileged, I mean poor families and also children who are at risk of abuse or neglect. My daughter, who teaches kindergarten in Arcadia, observes regularly the advantage of School Readiness and family support at home as voluntary prekindergarten (PVK) is open to all children throughout Florida without regard to the status of the childs family or income. Seventy-one percent of the 233,000 4-year-olds in Florida attend PVK. Now, take a look at the Early Learning Coalition where I am privileged to serve on the board. First, the entire staff and board members could not be more dedicated to the mission of the coalition. The mission is very straightfor ward. It is to support families and children in accessing high quality early care and education services In addition, the Heartland Coalition is indeed fortunate to have Anne Bouhebent serve as the executive director. The number of children served by the Early Learning Coalition of Floridas Heartland is around 3,430 with a total budget of some $14 million for the School Readiness and VPK programs, $6.5 million of which is allocated to Charlotte County. Beyond funding from the state many of the coalitions benet from contributions by county governments, the United Way and other not-for-prot organizations. Beyond the education provided, it is very important to keep in mind that there is a rigorous oversight program carried out by the professional staff of each Early Learning coalition. Providers who par ticipate in the Early Learning Coalition range from private center-based child care facilities to churches, and from Head Start to family child care homes. In visiting any of these facilities, the one common element is the smiles on the faces of all the children. At the time of my appointment by Gov. Scott, I could not help but reect on my wifes role as the head of a nursery school up North. I would always have an expert in child care available. Anne Bouhebent sums up the ne work of the Early Learning Coalition when she said, We are committed to ensuring that our services are the best quality possible. We want each child to have a strong foundation to ensure a lifetime of success. With that comment, I hope each reader realizes how important, in todays period of family dysfunction and poverty, the work of Early Learning coalitions across Florida will make a difference for the future of deserving children.

The inuential editor was the best friend Thanksgiving ever had. We are accustomed, in a more jaded and secular age, to wars on various holidays; Hale waged a war for Thanksgiving. For years, she evangelized for nationalizing the holiday by designating the last Thursday of November for it to be celebrated annually across the country. Besides plugging for Thanksgiving in her publication, Godeys Ladys Book, she wrote Presidents Taylor, Fillmore, Pierce and Buchanan about it before hitting pay dirt with Abraham Lincoln. On Oct. 3, 1863, Lincoln urged his fellow citizens to observe the last Thursday of November as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our benecent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. Hale had succeeded in her long-sought goal, but kept as Peggy Baker notes in an essay about her as The Godmother of Thanksgiving writing editorials about Thanksgiving for another dozen years. You might say that she was a bore and nag on the topic, if her cause hadnt been so splendid and her under standing of Thanksgiving so clear-eyed, clairvoyant even. Hale saw the Fourth of July and Thanksgiving as the twin festivals of the American people, each connected with their history, and therefore of great importance in giving power and distinctness to their nationality, as she put it in an 1852 editorial. July Fourth celebrated national independence and liberty, while Thanksgiving acknowledged God as the dispenser of blessings. She argued that these two festivals should be joyfully and universally observed throughout our whole country, and thus incorporated in our habits of thought as inseparable from American life. Of course, Thanksgiving had existed on these shores long before Hale took it up as a cause. Her description of a New England Thanksgiving feast in her 1827 novel Northwood would have been recognized by Norman Rockwell, and could apply with equal accuracy to the average American home today. She described the table now intended for the whole household, every child having a seat on this occasion; and the more the better. The roasted turkey took precedence, she wrote, being placed at the head of the table; and well did it become its lordly station, sending forth the rich odor of its savory stufng, and nely covered with the froth of the basting. The dessert course is almost as recognizable: There was a huge plum pudding, custards and pies of every name and description ever known in Yankee land; yet the pumpkin pie occupied the most distinguished niche. Thanksgiving had always been held in autumn, Hale explains in the book, the time when the overowing garners of America call for this expression of joyful gratitude. But different states held it on different days, and the holiday tradition was strongest in New England. Hale wanted to guarantee Thanksgivings place in Americas rmament by making it a national day. She quoted the 19th-century British writer Robert Southey in making her case. Festivals, when duly observed, attach men to the civil and religious institutions of their country, he wrote. Who is there who does not recollect their effect upon himself in early life? Hale understood the particular pull of Thanksgiving. She wrote in 1837, It is a festival which will never become obsolete, for it cherishes the best affections of the heart the social and domestic ties. (Although her faith in family bonds, refortied around the Thanksgiving table, might have been a touch naive: How can we hate our Mississippi brother-in-law? And who is a better fellow than our wifes uncle from St. Louis?) In her 1852 editorial, she predicted that wherever an American is found, the last Thursday would be the Thanksgiving Day. Families may be separated so widely that personal reunion would be impossible; still this festival, like the Fourth of July, will bring every American heart into harmony with his home and his country. And so it does, still. Rich Lowry is the editor of the National Review.

Our Town Page 10 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, November 29, 2013 VIEWPOINTThe mother did the shooters laundry on a daily basis as the shooter often changed clothing during the day. That matter-of-fact recitation, from the just-released ofcial report on the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, encapsulates the enduring contradiction of Nancy Lanza, shot four times in her bed with her .22-caliber Savage Mark II rie. The shooter was her son Adam, the disturbed boy she sought desper ately to help and ended up enabling. Nancy Lanza, 52 when she died, is a gure at once tragic and infuriating. To read the states attorneys report on Sandy Hook is to simultaneously admire Lanzas erce efforts to help her troubled child and to seethe at the stupidity of her decision to allow him access to indeed, encourage his interest in the weapons he used to murder 27 people. As the one-year anniversary approaches, unanswerable questions remain questions that the report can resurface but not resolve. Not only about Adam Lanzas motives for an act so irrational and heinous no explanation can sufce but about his mothers behavior. I tend more toward mommy-empathizing than mommy-blaming, and there is much to empathize with in the case of Nancy Lanza. She was dealt an extraordinarily hard hand in the case of her younger child, and she stuck with it. By age 6, he was diagnosed with sensory integration disorder; he had difculty interacting with others and recoiled at being touched. By middle school, he was identied as suffering from Aspergers syndrome, part of the autism spectrum. Nancy Lanza tried home schooling and private school. Nothing worked. You never turn your back on your children, she told a family member, according to Raising Adam Lanza, produced by The Hartford Courant and Frontline. The states attorneys report documents this dogged maternal deter mination: The mother took care of all of the shooters needs. The mother indicated that she did not work because of her sons condition. She worried about what would happen to the shooter if anything happened to her. Nancy Lanza structured her life around her sons peculiarities. Workers at the house were instructed never to ring the doorbell and to make prior ar rangements before using power equipment as her son had issues with loud noises. Adam Lanza was particular about the food that he ate and its arrangement on a plate in relation to other foods on the plate. Certain types of dishware could not be used for particular foods. The mother would shop for him and cook to the shooters specications. When Nancy Lanza considered moving to Washington state so that Adam could attend a special school, she planned to buy a recreational vehicle as he would not sleep in a hotel. Birthdays, Christmas and holidays were not to be celebrated. He would not allow his mother to put up a Christmas tree. The mother explained it by saying that [the] shooter had no emotions or feelings. The mother also got rid of a cat because the shooter did not want it in the house. None of this could have been easy. Although they lived in the same house, Adam would only communicate with her by email. According to one witness interviewed, when his mother asked him if he would feel bad if anything happened to her, he replied, No. Poor woman. But also: misguided, reckless woman. In seventh-grade writing assignments, Adam had obsessed about battles, destruction and war. The level of violence in the writing was disturbing. He spent hours playing video games, many violent (one chillingly called School Shooting). And still Nancy Lanza encouraged his interest in guns. She went target shooting with Adam and his older brother. They took National Rie Association safety courses. I can understand a parent, desperate to nd a way to connect to an alienated child, seizing on a mutual passion. But no person with Adams bizarre behaviors ought to be around guns, let alone have them within easy access at home. Few parents have to deal with the likes of Adam Lanza. Many parents, perhaps most, have to learn to nd the balance between devotion and denial, empathy and enabling. Nancy Lanza failed at that task. Searching her house after the shootings, they found a check she had made out to Adam. It was dated Christmas Day, and designated to buy a CZ 83 pistol. Ruth Marcus is a columnist for The Washington Post. Readers may reach her at marcusr@washpost.com.A mother tragic and infuriating Ruth Marcus For children, Christmas may be the favorite holiday, even if their families dont celebrate the birth of Christ. The twinkling lights and aura of magic that suddenly transgure the most plebian edices are nearly as seductive as a round-trip ticket to Never-Never Land. For adults, invariably, the favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. The reason is simple: Compared to all others, Thanksgiving is a relatively stress-free holiday. Free of those things that separate us religious, political and otherwise Thanksgiving is a day of e pluribus unum. In George Washingtons proclamation of 1789, Thanksgiving was designated as a time of duty to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benets, and humbly to implore His protection and favor a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness. How far we have drifted. Hear ye, hear ye, all members of Congress. Thanksgiving is our favorite holiday for more prosaic reasons as well. No gifts, no costumes, no owers, candies or treats to buy. All we have to do is gather with friends and family, commune over food and football and, if one so desires, prayer. Whats not to love about a day like that? A few things come to mind: Holiday decorations up too soon, Christmas trees lining supermarket storefronts, Christmas carols too early in stores. Stress and the pressure to purchase suddenly are in the air, contaminating the purity of our annual day of repose and urging us from our respite. The once monthlong break between Thanksgiving and Christmas shrinks each year so that our last turkey sandwich is hardly digested before consumeritis sets in. Symptoms are well-known and graphic displays are in evidence packed parking lots and human stampedes; shopping baskets overowing with huge must-haves; debt and depression when the adrenaline subsides. This year the break was crunched further by Thanksgivings late date, but the trend of turning fall into one, unrelenting shopping season has been decades in the making. And though we profess to resent the imposition of perpetual holidays, we seem impotent to resist the command to consume. Black Friday the perennial, people-crushing, day-after-Thanksgiving sales marathon is nearly a holiday itself. This year, Thanksgiving Day is the new black as several chains (including Walmart, Best Buy, JCPenney, Toys R Us, Target, Kmart, Sears and even The Gap) plan to open on the day itself. In so doing, these retailers further diminish the meaning of Thanksgiving while advancing the notion that time is better spent hauling away largescreen TVs than engaging in human communion. The bumper-sticker slogan He who dies with the most toys wins seems to become a cultural mantra as we abandon any pretense of human purpose beyond consumption. Despite the seeming inevitability of these trends, many Americans wish it werent so. A recent HuffPost/YouGov poll found bipartisan aversion to stores opening on Thanksgiving 65 percent of Democrats, 63 percent of Republicans and 60 percent of independents say stores should be closed. Yet as Forbes points out, stores wouldnt open if there were no demand. When the National Retail Federation asked consumers why they want to shop early, most said it was to spread out their gift budgets or to take advantage of deals too good to pass up. Virtue is in the details, I suppose. According to Accentures annual shopping survey, 38 percent of respondents plan to visit four or more stores on Thanksgiving or Black Friday, and more than one-third say theyll shop before midnight Thursday. Even so, one more day, one more tradition reduced to its commercial value and a few dollars saved at the expense of humility and gratitude seems a price too high for the procurement of more stuff. In the scheme of things, this sense of loss is perhaps undeserving of lamentations, but bowing to commercial greed, especially on our national day of thanks, seems a crime against one of our best founding inventions. If stores erect a sale, they will come. But stores dont have to. Heres a revolutionary concept: Instead, why not demonstrate gratitude for our nation by urging its people to spend time with their families, surely the most valuable insurance for a stable future. Prots may take a short holiday, but the reward of living in a culture that values human connection and appreciates, in Washingtons words from the proclamation, the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed is beyond measure.

Our Town Page 14 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, November 29, 2013 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS PUNTA GORDA OK, three steps right, walk, lets go! OK, jog now. ... Come on guys. Chin up, smile! Mimi Ford, her wide smile accentuated by her all-black outt, walks and jogs among the 30 or so participants in her 9 a.m. Forever Fit class at the Bayfront YMCA a workout she designed herself. Tina Turner is on the boom box as Ford leads the class like a drill sergeant only with compassion and humor. Its that compassion and dedication to having fun that have made the 73-year-old tness director so popular with thousands of devotees in a long career that began in New York and is coming to an end soon in Charlotte County. A 5-foot-2, tanned bundle of energy, with short-cropped blonde hair, Ford played forward, believe it or not, on her high school basketball team in Leechburg, Pa. She also loved softball and just about any sport as she had plenty of opportunity for competition growing up with her male cousins. She earned a masters in education at Temple University and was happy teaching school, but an exercise class she signed up for in 1980 changed her direction. Jackie Sorenson, she was the woman who started group exercise classes, Ford said. She had the franchise, and I eventually bought her program and began teaching it. Ford led classes at the Capital District YMCA in the Albany, N.Y., area for 25 years while marrying and having a daughter, who now lives in Manchester, Conn. It became not only a source of income but a way of life for her. One day, however, while walking into the Saratoga YMCA, it was gray and snowy and I said to myself, Why am I still here? She and a friend visited Charlotte County and she stayed at the old Best Western in Punta Gorda, just a block or two from the Bayfront YMCA. While visiting, she walked there and watched a tness class. She decided this was the place for her. Someone upstairs was guiding me, I think, she said. She applied for a job at the Charlotte County Family YMCA in May 1996 and started that following July. The rest is history. She has accomplished just about everything a tness instructor can including the prestigious Active Older Adult Coordinator and Fitness Specialist designation that qualies her to be a CEO or coordinator of a YMCA a position that would pay more money but would not satisfy her need to help people live better lives. When word spread she was leaving the YMCA, her devotees took it hard. Glenice Reed, who became a friend through classes with Ford, actually teared up when Ford broke the news. Ive been working out with her for about three years and she is so much fun, Reed said. She has fun music and she sings along sometimes. She makes sure you come out of her class knowing you have worked out. Jane Eastburn, 80, is another admirer. (Mimi) has done private training with me after I hurt my back and she is very special, Eastburn, who has taught yoga herself, said. She is a giver. Sandy Boulton slipped and snapped my back in two and credits Ford with getting her back in shape after rehab. She makes it so much fun, Boulton said. She plays some risqu music at times and gets us laughing. She is always so alive. Ford who obviously stays in good shape, watching what she eats but admitting to an occasional bowl of ice cream or slice of pizza said the decision to retire was tough, and she really had no good reason to do so now. Im not physically tired or unhappy, she said. But I do have family I want to spend more time with. And there are some things at the house I have been putting off doing. Ford said she is proud of the fact so many people in her classes are able to go off meds for high blood pressure and diabetes. But, most of all, she is happy that she has made them smile and improve their health, balance and flexibility. There are people who dont have that gene to want to help. They might say I dont care, but I do care, she said. And if someone takes my class and doesnt come back, I have not met my goal.A legacy of fitnessBy JOHN HACKWORTHSUN EDITOR SUN PHOTO BY DONNELL BATESWith tons of energy, instructor Mimi Ford is seen here at the Bayfront YMCA in Punta Gorda teaching her class. 479954 Dine at Any of these Fine Local Restaurants 477644 DAILY SPECIALS $6.99 UP 459939 Great Food!

Our Town Page 16 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, November 29, 2013 FROM PAGE ONE scores are not used in Charlotte County in teachers evaluations. Instead, the district uses classroom observations and is working on its own value-added model, which will look at factors outside of FCAT scores such as graduation rates, AP class enrollment and SAT and ACT scores to calculate a teachers effectiveness. However, the Florida DOE plans to use its value-added scores to determine perfor mance pay in the 2014-2015 school year. Teachers in Charlotte County had mixed reactions to the availability of DOE value-added scores as public record. Paul Platt, a seventhgrade social studies teacher at Murdock Middle School, said its like a sword hanging over our head. Platt also expressed concern over the rollout of performance pay next year. If its not developed well youre going to end up losing good teachers because theyre going to get frustrated with the system, (and) youre going to end up losing potentially good teachers because they look for better opportunities in other job elds. Jennifer Harris, who teaches third grade at Deep Creek Elementary School, said: I dont think (the availability of the scores) would have a negative effect. Parents in the community should know (the scores) because Charlotte County is really good at helping teachers grow.Email: iross@sun-herald.comSCORESFROM PAGE 1 the turkeys, mashed potatoes and gravy; the Publix on Peachland Boulevard that provided most everything else; and to the more than 200 volunteers who made time on this Thanksgiving to cook, serve and clean up for others. Margie Hensley, 71, used to attend First United Methodist in the 1990s, but was chased away by Hurricane Charley. Now she is back to serve others. We came to church on Sunday and talked to the lady in charge to see what needed to be done, Hensley said. You dont have to be homeless, you dont have to be poor. Just share a meal and conversation. Emma Hudson, 10, also is waiting on tables, and letting her own Thanksgiving dinner wait. I just want to help and care for the homeless, she said. Give them good food and make them feel at home. This was just one sample of the Thanksgiving generosity being served up across Charlotte County.New Hope community dinner all about givingNORTH PORT Not even temperatures that dropped below 40 degrees in the wee hours of Thanksgiving morning slowed down Ryan Rowan and a cast of volunteers as they smoked 94 turkeys for New Hope Community Churchs annual free Thanksgiving dinner in North Port. In fact, the turkeys were done well ahead of schedule. All we really had to do was double the amount of charcoal we used, Rowan said Thursday about cooking in the unseasonably cool and windy weather. Rowan said the weather really didnt matter to him, because cooking the turkeys is something hes done for New Hope for the last seven years. The community event helps feed the needy, homeless and others who cannot afford a dinner for Thanksgiving or just dont have anywhere to go. This is a good thing for a lot of good people, Rowan said. A lot of good people come together to make this happen, so why not be a part of it? Mike Saxton, a longtime member of the church who headed up this years dinner, said the church planned to serve more than 800 people, in addition to making 150 deliveries of meals to peoples homes, re stations and other places all over North Port and Port Charlotte. He said that more than doubles the amount of deliveries from last year, when Port Charlotte was not included. The turkeys ranged from 12 to 15 pounds. All 94 birds were donated, with 80 coming from Walmart. The Heron Creek Subway donated 10 turkeys, and church members donated the remaining four. In addition to the turkeys, hundreds of pounds of potatoes, all the traditional Thanksgiving trimmings and a number of different desserts were available all free of charge. The event also included spiritual music, giveaways every half-hour including a 32-inch TV donated b y Quality TV and bounce houses for the kids. Sexton said the turkeys were nished cooking by 8 a.m. and the carving was done two hours later. More than 100 volunteers took part. The community really responded ... and thats awesome, Sexton said. This has gone amazingly better than I expected. Volunteers from all over the area helped out, including Canadian Yasmina Petkovski. A cook for Meals on Wheels who does a lot of volunteering in Canada, she decided right away to volunteer when she rst heard about the event. North Port resident Valerie Raney said she has a small family in North Port and thought shed give volunteering a try while she had some free time Thursday. This is a wonderful thing the church is doing, Petkovski said. Englewood resident Bob Ciszek had a special reason for being at the dinner. In addition to helping carve turkeys, he was there with his 6-month-old granddaughter, Laura Cestro, for her very rst Thanksgiving. This is just a wonderful way to spend Thanksgiving, Ciszek said between spoon-feeding Laura bites of dressing. Were just here to serve the community and give back. This is about the joy of giving, and you feel a lot better when you give. Englewood reaches out to those in needAs a young man, James Gerard Ahern was a lobsterman in Massachusetts. I ran the biggest seafood business in Boston, he said. But government concerns about overshing put out him out of work. Thursday morning, the homeless Englewood man emerged from the restroom at the pavilion at Indian Mound Park in Englewood, where he and some friends had spent the night to stay warm. It wasnt so bad, he said between bites of turkey, stufng and mashed potatoes provided by volunteers from St. Davids Episcopal Church. We go wherever we have to. Its tough, but we survive. Every year volunteers from the church prepare a holiday feast t for the nest tables for anyone who can make it to the park. The annual meal is a tradition started by the now defunct Foursquare Church. With the help of Foursquare, Dena Browning kicked her drug and alcohol dependency and received help for her mental illness. Shes no stranger to Ahern, as these days shes a volunteer with Beacon House, a mental health care facility, and works with St. Davids, reaching out to the homeless trying to help them get off the streets, or at the very least, get enough to eat. I enjoy going out and helping these guys. Monday through Friday I go to Beacon House to get therapy and then I do whatever needs to be done to help others. Ive been clean of drugs and alcohol for 14 years. Im a peer mentor and Im training to be a certied peer recovery specialist so I can help out more, she said. St. Davids outreach minister Pat Knox said the turnout was lower than expected and much lower than in recent years. It was so cold this morning. It was right at 40 and if you have to walk or ride a bike here, youve got a problem, she said. One homeless mans mother came down and brought him some more clothing. The weather wasnt an issue at the End Zone sports bar on McCall Road in Englewood. By 1 p.m. new owner Joanne Anders said about 200 people had been served and she was expecting as many more by days end. Its been a steady ow, she said. Thursday marked the seventh consecutive year the End Zone served the free Thanksgiving meal, but it was the rst time for Anders and her husband, Owen. With the exception of the bar which was showing football games on television the restaurant was closed for regular business but was packed with hungry fans of turkey and slices of pie being plated by Joanne Richardson and Larry Cowlin. Cowlin, a Marine Corps veteran, started volunteering at The End Zone ve years ago and hasnt missed a year since. I feel like Im giving back a little bit in my small way, he said. Its a good thing.Email: groberts@sun-herald.com, slockwood@sun-herald.com, cburton@ sun-herald.comTHANKSFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY SCOTT LOCKWOOODNew Hope Church Thanksgiving dinner organizer Mike Saxton prepares to give away a 32-inch TV and several other items during a rae Thursday.

Thered been some concerns about whether the wind could keep 16 giant balloons grounded, but the cherished tradition prevailed. We thought theyd nd a way to pull it off, said parade-goer John Mispagel, of San Jose, Calif. Its really fun seeing so many people having such a great time. Balloon handlers were keeping a tight grip on their inated characters and held them fairly close to the ground in tree-lined areas. The wind was around 26 mph. Mispagel and his wife, Susan, said Sonic the Hedgehog got caught on a tree while rounding a corner near the start of the parade route; handlers used cutters on a rope to free the balloon. The cheering throngs were bundled against a 30-degree chill, but the sun was shining. Some in the crowd lifted NEW YORK Stores are hoping holiday shoppers will gobble their turkey on Thanksgiving afternoon, but save the pumpkin pie for later. As more than a dozen major retailers from Target to Toys R Us open on Thanksgiving Day, shoppers across the country are expected to get a jump start on holiday shopping. The Thanksgiving openings come despite planned protests across the country from workers groups that are against employees missing Thanksgiving meals at home. The holiday openings are a break with tradition. The day after Thanksgiving, called Black Friday, for a decade had been considered the ofcial start to the holiday buying season. Its also typically the biggest shopping day of the year. But in the past few years, retailers have pushed opening times into Thanksgiving night. Theyve also pushed up discounting that used to be reserved for Black Friday into early November, which has led retail experts to question whether the Thanksgiving openings will steal some of Black Fridays thunder. In fact, Thanksgiving openings took a bite out of Black Friday sales last year: Sales on turkey day were $810 million last year, an increase of 55 per cent from the previous year as more stores opened on the holiday, according to Chicago research rm ShopperTrak. But sales dropped 1.8 percent to $11.2 billion on Black Friday, Holiday shopping season begins earlyBy LARRY NEUMEISTERASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERBy ANNE DINNOCENZIOAP RETAIL WRITERMillions line streets for Macys Thanksgiving Day ParadePARADE | 4 SHOPPING | 4 WASHINGTON A month after emerging from a government shutdown at the top of their game, many Democrats in Congress newly worried about the partys re-election prospects are for the rst time distancing themselves from President Barack Obama after the disastrous rollout of his health care overhaul. At issue, said several Obama allies, is a loss of trust in the president after only 106,000 people instead of an anticipated half million were able to buy insurance coverage the rst month of the new Obamacare websites. In addition, some 4.2 million Americans received notices from insurers that policies Obama had promised they could keep were being canceled. Folks are now, I think in talking to members, more cautious with regard to dealing with the president, said Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, the senior Democrat on the House Oversight Committee and one of the rst leaders in his state to endorse Obamas presidential candidacy six years ago. Cummings, the White Houses biggest defender in a Republican-controlled committee whose agenda is waging war against the administration over Benghazi, the IRS scandal, a gun-tracking operation and now health care, said he still thinks Obama is Dems, Obama distant as 2014 nearsBy LAURIE KELLMANASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERDISTANT | 4RAMOS ARIZPE, Mexico In Mexicos booming auto industry, the cars rolling off assembly lines may look identical, but how safe they are depends on where theyre headed. Vehicles destined to stay in Mexico or go south to the rest of Latin America carry a code signifying theres no need for antilock braking systems, electronic stability control, or more than two air bags, if any, in its basic models. If the cars will be exported to the United States or Europe, however, they must meet stringent safety laws, including as many as six to 10 air bags, and stability controls that compensate for slippery roads and other road dangers, say engineers who have worked in Mexico-based auto factories. Because the price of the two versions of the cars is about the same, the dual system buttresses the bottom lines of automakers such as General Motors and Nissan. But its being blamed for a surge in auto-related fatalities in Mexico, where laws require virtually no safety protections. We are paying for cars that are far more expensive and far less safe, said Alejandro Furas, technical director for Global New Car Assessment Program, or NCAP, a vehicle crash-test group. Something is very wrong.

The Navy announced that it has suspended contracts with Britishbased Inchcape Shipping Services Ltd. and its afliated companies. The rm has provided ship husbanding services to U.S. ships in the Persian Gulf and Mediterranean. Navy ofcials said the suspension of Inchcape is not connected to the investigation into another longtime contractor in the Asia-Pacic region, Singapore-based Glenn Defense Marine Asia. The investigation into Glenn Defense Marine Asia has led to criminal charges in San Diego against two Navy commanders, a Naval Criminal Investigative Service agent, and two Malaysian business executives. Also, two admirals have been put on leave, a Navy captain transferred to a lesser job, and another captain relieved of command of his ship.Publisher sued for publishing Malcolm Xs diaryCHICAGO (Chicago Tribune) When editors at Chicagos Third World Press purchased the rights to publish a book containing Malcolm Xs diary, they saw it as an opportunity for readers to view the last year of the civil rights leaders life through his own words. But earlier this month, just days before the ofcial release of The Diary of Malcolm X, 1964, the family of Malcolm X led a copyright infringement lawsuit in Manhattan federal court against Third World Press. U.S. District Judge Laura Taylor Swain issued a temporary restraining order preventing the publisher from selling the book. At issue is whether Malcolm Xs daughter, Ilyasah Al-Shabazz, who is the books co-editor along with journalist Herb Boyd, had the authority to sell the rights to her fathers diary to Third World Press.Diet drug to get another shot at FDA approval(LA Times) The makers of the proposed weight-loss drug Contrave said this week they have taken a key rst step in showing that the medication does not boost the heart and stroke risks of those taking it, and they announced plans to return to the Food and Drug Administration to seek its approval in the coming weeks. Contrave, an investigational drug that pairs the antidepressant and anti-smoking drug bupropion with the anti-addiction medication naltrexone, could be approved by the drug agency for the U.S. market as early as June. In June and July of 2012, the FDA approved the marketing of Belviq and Qsymia. But Contrave was rebuffed by the FDA in February 2011. | NATION MALCOLM XCHICAGO (AP) The Obama administration is delaying yet another aspect of the health care law, putting off until next November the launch of an online portal to the health insurance marketplace for small businesses. The move, announced Wednesday, was needed because repairs are still underway to the troubled healthcare.gov website, which is the primary way for individuals to apply for insurance, and that has priority, federal ofcials said. In a conference call with reporters, administration ofcials said employers who want to buy marketplace plans for their workers now will need to go through an agent, broker or insurance company this year, instead of using the government website. The administration said the plan will still allow small businesses to buy coverage but avoid slowing technical repairs to the hobbled federal online site. Under the law, most small businesses do not have to provide coverage. But rms with 50 or more employees face a mandate to offer insurance or risk nes from the government in 2015. The healthcare.gov site, where individuals without employer-sponsored health care can shop for insurance, is now smoothly handling 25,000 users at the same time and is on track to meet its goal of handling 50,000 simultaneous users by Saturday, said administration spokeswoman Julie Bataille. We have a lot of work left to do in the next few days, she said. The small business marketplace, also called SHOP, was supposed to provide employers a new way to shop for coverage. The website was to make comparison shopping easier while promoting competition and keeping premiums down. The delay, which doesnt affect states running their own marketplaces, was met with frustration. Its disappointing that the online portion of the federal small business marketplace through healthcare.gov will be delayed, and its important it get up and running as soon as possible, said John Arensmeyer, CEO of Small Business Majority, an advocacy group that supports the health care law. However, it doesnt change the fact that the marketplace can offer the most competitive combination of price and quality for small businesses purchasing health insurance. The National Retail Federation, which has been working to ease the laws requirements for its members, was less generous. If the law is so burdensome for the administration to implement, just think how hard it is for small businesses, which are focused on growing a company, hiring new employees and assisting customers, said Neil Trautwein, the groups top health policy ofcial, in a statement.Latest health care law delay: small business website LAKE WORTH, Fla. (Cox Newspapers) Jodi Watson raced to nish a short sale on her Lake Worth home before it could be sold to the highest bidder at the countys foreclosure auction. With a buyer-signed contract and an initial blessing from her lender, the sale meant less credit damage, a release from unpaid mortgage debt and relief from years of loan modication letdowns. In the world of Florida foreclosures, her case had moved at lightning speed 17 months from summons to judgment. As the Oct. 21 auction crept forward and with her short sale still wending through a notoriously slow process, Watson pleaded for an auction delay. Her bank agreed. A Palm Beach County circuit court judge did not. Five years into the Great Recessions unrivaled real estate crash, the housing landscape in Florida is now shaped as much by the courts as homebuyers, Realtors and lenders. Hundreds of thousands of foreclosures still crowd Floridas dockets 285,750 as of Sept. 30. The judiciary has been given money and marching orders to clear them. Its understandable judges are wary of canceling foreclosure sales the nal step in closing a case after hearing for years that short sales and loan modications were nearly done deals, only to have them delay the inevitable. But attorneys, homeowners and Realtors complain the processing push is killing legitimate deals that are more likely to succeed today because of rising home prices and National Mortgage Settlement mandates. The 2012 settlement with the nations ve largest lenders restricts foreclosures from moving forward if there is an active loan modication or short sale pending. Watsons home was bought at auction for $112,900, $37,000 less than what it would have sold for under terms of the short sale contract. I dont understand why the system works the way it does, said Watson, 43, who landed in foreclosure after her lenders advice to stop making payments if she wanted a loan modication. I dont know real estate law and all that stuff. I just scratch my head because it doesnt make sense. Last week, Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Diana Lewis heard case after case of requests to cancel foreclosure auctions because short sales and loan modications were underway. Lewis has a reputation of no-nonsense rulings and little patience for delays. In August, Lewis sent Marlene Marreros West Palm Beach home to auction despite a bank plea that the sale be canceled because of short sale negotiations. Marrero stood before Lewis last week asking the auction be set aside so she could nish the short sale. Lewis reluctantly agreed after Marreros Realtor promised she could get the deal done. The more time you give them, all they do is put it on the back burner, Lewis said, responding to a different request for a delay because of a loan modication.Short sale deals dying as judges send homes to auction WASHINGTON (AP) Space will serve up a banquet of activities on Thanksgiving, featuring a comet kissing the sun, a zero-gravity freeze-dried feast in orbit and a rocket launch attempt: First course: Comet ISON, which was discovered a year ago, is making its rst spin around the sun and will come the closest to the super-hot solar surface at 1:37 p.m. EST. It may take a few hours before astronomers know if the comet survived its brush with the sun. If it survives, and maybe even if it doesnt, people in the Northern Hemisphere will have a good chance of seeing the comet or its remains in the rst two weeks of December just before sunrise and after sunset. It wont be visible with the naked eye on Thursday, but NASA has a eet of telescopes trained on ISON. Second course: For the six people on board the International Space Station including American astronauts Mike Hopkins and Rick Mastracchio its time for a traditional Thanksgiving feast. But dont expect them to be carving a succulent bird. In a video from space, the two astronauts showed off their menu, all in small sealed packets: irradiated smoked turkey, thermostabilized yams, cornbread dressing, potatoes, freeze-dried asparagus, baked beans, bread, cobbler and what Hopkins called his favorite dehydrated green bean casserole. It comes with a view from space that is juicier than any turkey on Earth. Though we miss our families, its great to be in space, Hopkins said from 260 miles above Earth in a taped message. Dessert: Residents of Floridas Space Coast may get to see a rocket thunder through the sky around dinner time if all goes well. Private rm SpaceX of Hawthorne, Calif., will try again to launch its Falcon-9 rocket between 5:38 p.m. and 6:44 p.m. EST from Cape Canaveral Air Station. The large rocket didnt launch in a rst attempt Monday because of a technical glitch. The rocket is carrying a 7,055-pound telecommunications satellite for a Luxembourg rm. This is part of a growing trend of newer rocket rms SpaceX is headed by PayPal founder Elon Musk launching more and signing up nongovernment customers, said Harvard astronomer Jonathan McDowell, who catalogues launches worldwide. Thanksgiving and November are often a quiet time for space, but not this year, he said. It will be the rst Cape Canaveral launch attempt on Thanksgiving since 1959 that one failed when the rocket exploded seconds after liftoff, according to McDowell.Space hosts busy Thanksgiving with launch, comet AP PHOTOIn this still image taken from video posted by NASA on Tuesday, NASA astro nauts Rick Mastracchio, left, and Mike Hopkins show some of the turkey and green bean casserole they plan to eat for their Thanksgiving meal in a video made aboard the Earth-orbiting International Space Station. LOS ANGELES (LA Times) After a long stretch of rising competition in college admissions, the numbers this year may be on the side of students like Davone Morales, an Eagle Rock High School senior. He and his classmates nationwide are lucky to be part of the smallest group in years applying to college. The population dip wont bust open the doors to Stanford, Harvard, UCLA and other highly selective campuses. But many experts predict it will be somewhat easier to obtain admission offers from good schools. And colleges are working harder to court applicants. To students, the demographic dip offers a bit of hope after months of writing essays, taking entrance exams and gathering recommendation letters. This is crunch time for these seniors: University of California applications are due Saturday and the deadline for most private colleges is weeks later. Students typically dont nd out where theyve been accepted until the spring. The numbers of high school graduates across the country rose from 2.6 million in 1996-97 to a peak of 3.4 million in 2010-11, as the children of later baby boomers matured into 12th-graders. Then a decline began and the low point will be this years 3.2 million nationally, according to a report by the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE).

Byrd, pilot Bernt Balchen, radio operator Harold June and photographer Ashley McKinney made the first airplane flight over the South Pole. In 1947, the U.N. General Assembly passed a resolution calling for the partitioning of Palestine between Arabs and Jews. In 1952, President-elect Dwight D. Eisenhower secretly left on a trip to Korea, keeping his campaign promise to assess the ongoing conflict first-hand. In 1972, the coin-operated video arcade game Pong, created by Atari, made its debut at Andy Capps Tavern in Sunnyvale, Calif.

The Miami Herald reports that the 7-year-old male Schnauzer named Puppy was found wandering the streets of Northwest Miami-Dade Tuesday. The dog wears diapers and uses a custom-made wheelchair. A hernia operation left his hind legs paralyzed three years ago. The county shelter made public pleas on local media but Puppys owner, Mireya Fernandez, was on vacation. Her granddaughter in Havana, however, was watching a Univision feed and recognized the diaper-clad pooch, who shelter workers had taken to calling Huggies. She then called Fernandez, who was reunited with Puppy Wednesday. Despite his condition, the dog had escaped through a backyard fence. Fernandez made sure Puppy now wears a microchip.ODD NEWS Disabled dog, owner reunited after Cuba tip to the latest available data from the countrys transportation department. Over the same decade, the U.S. reduced the number of auto-related fatalities by 40 percent. The death rate in Mexico, when comparing fatalities with the size of the car eet, is more than 3.5 times that of the U.S. Nevertheless, Mexico hasnt introduced any safety proposals other than general seat belt requirements for its 22-million strong auto eet. Even then, the laws dont mandate three-point shoulder belts necessary to secure child safety seats. Brazil and Argentina, on the other hand, have passed laws requiring all vehicles to have dual front air bags and antilock braking systems by next year. An Associated Press investigation this year found that Brazils auto plants produce cars aimed at Latin American consumers that lack basic safety features. Like Brazil, Mexico doesnt run its own crash test facility to rank cars safety before they hit the road. Dr. Arturo Cervantes Trejo, director of the Mexican Health Ministrys National Accident Prevention Council, said the country has a long way to go to upgrade safety standards, but challenging the nations $30 billion auto industry could be difcult. Its a complicated subject because of the amount of money carmakers bring to this country. The economy protects them, Cervantes told the AP. But there are plans, there is a strategy. We have a working group with the car industry. Auto plants cover a swath of central Mexico, cranking out about 3 million cars a year while lifting into the middle class auto hubs in the states of Aguascalientes and Puebla. In a matter of a few years, Mexico has become the worlds fourth biggest auto exporter, despite having no homegrown brands, and the countrys car eet doubled between 2001 and 2011, the latest national gures show. In fact, consumers in rst-world countries are paying the same or even less for safer cars. For example, basic versions of Mexicos second most popular car, the Nissan Versa, made in central Aguascalientes, come with two air bags, but without electronic stability control systems, which use sensors to activate brakes when a car loses control. The sticker price of the newer generation of the sedan comes to $16,000. The U.S. version of the same car has six air bags in the front, on the sides and mounted in the roof, in addition to an electronic stability control system. That sticker price is about $14,000.UNSAFEFROM PAGE 1 operating with integrity. But he noted that not all his Democratic colleagues agree. They want to make sure that everything possible is being done to, number one, be transpar ent, (two) x this website situation and, three, to restore trust, Cummings said. Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., like Cummings, a prominent member of the Congressional Black Caucus who personally likes Obama, struggled to describe the state of play between congressional Democrats and the president. I am trying to think if you can call it a relationship at this point, he said. Clay said the administration is now obligated to x it, x all of it after Obama apologized this month for both the insurance website problems and his earlier promises that people could keep their old polices. Otherwise, he said, a wide brush will be used to paint us all as incompetent and ineffective. Obama is now allowing insurance companies to reissue their canceled policies for another year. But Obamacares problems have left Democrats vulnerable to an orchestrated assault by Republicans who six weeks ago were on the losing end of the government shutdown. The political body language tells the story of the strain. Thirty-nine House Democrats in Obamas party deed the presidents veto threat and voted for a GOPsponsored bill to permit the sale of individual health coverage that falls short of requirements in the law. I think people want to have a little more transparency going forward with whoever is implementing the website and other elements, said Jeff Link, senior adviser to Iowa Rep. Bruce Braley, who is running for Senate and voted for both the original health care law and the GOP-sponsored House bill this month. If demanding that kind of transparency means lack of trust, he added delicately, then I think people probably would like to have had more transparency. Across the Capitol, several swing-state Senate Democrats have signed onto legislation to further weaken the health care law. Sponsored by Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu, whos facing a tough re-election challenge, the bill would require insurance companies to permanently continue selling policies that the law deems substandard. Landrieu herself skipped an event with Obama earlier this month when he appeared at the Port of New Orleans. She said she had a long-standing engagement elsewhere in the state, which Obama lost last year by 17 points.DISTANTFROM PAGE 1though it still was the biggest shopping day last year. Black Friday is now Gray Friday, said Craig Johnson, president of Customer Growth Partners, a retail consultancy. Its been pulled all the way to the beginning of November. Stores are trying to get shoppers to buy in an economy thats still challenging. While the job and housing markets are improving, that hasnt yet translated into sustained spending increases among most shoppers. Overall, The National Retail Federation expects retail sales to be up 3.9 percent to $602.1 billion during the last two months of the year. Thats higher than last years 3.5 percent growth, but below the 6 percent pace seen before the recession. Analysts expect sales to be generated at the expense of prots as retailers will likely have to do more discounting to get people into stores. More than two dozen stores including Kohls and Walmart have already lowered their prot outlooks for the year. The Thanksgiving openings are part of retailers holiday strategy of trying to lure shoppers in early and often during the holiday shopping season. But the stores face challenges in doing that. Some workers have petitions on change.org to protest against Target and Best Buy. The Retail Action Project, a labor-backed group of retail workers, also is planning to have members visiting customers at stores including Gap and Victorias Secret in the Manhattan borough of New York City to educate them about the demands on workers. Walmart has been the biggest target for protests against holiday hours. Most of the companys stores are open 24 hours, but the retailer is starting its sales events at 6 p.m. Thursday, two hours earlier than last year. The issue is part of a broader campaign against the companys treatment of workers thats being waged by a union-backed group called OUR Walmart, which includes former and current workers. The group is staging demonstrations and walkouts at hundreds of stores around the country on Black Friday.SHOPPINGFROM PAGE 1small children onto their shoulders. An excited 9-year-old Lily Thomolaris, of Pittsburgh, was delighted to see all the balloons. But she especially thought a big turkey was really cool. Matthew Ragbe, 11, lives in the neighborhood and came out to enjoy the sights. His twin brother decided not to leave their warm apartment. Hes probably watching the parade on TV, Matthew said. Loser. Lazy is more like the operative word, joked their mother, Alison Ragbe. The Ragbe family was on 77th Street, where a director of sorts merged oats and balloons with bands and clowns by shouting cheerful instructions through a loudspeaker. He called out to the Wicked Witch. Please join the parade! We dont want you to miss your moment! And merge she did. I dont see Toto, Michael Tellone, 19, of Pelham, shouted from behind the police barricades. Farther down the morethan-40-block parade route, 11-year-old Ema Kelly, of Manhasset, was protecting confetti buried 4 inches deep in her knitted hat as she awaited the parade pinnacle for many children: the end with Santa. She shared confetti collection duties with her neighborhood friend, 10-year-old Matthew OConnor. He forgot his hat so hes helping me collect it, and then were going to split it on the bus ride home, she said. Nearby, Columbia Law School student Andrew Leff said he had arrived at 5 a.m. to get a rst-row spot to watch the parade for the 23rd time in his 24 years. Ive never known it any other way and wouldnt want to, he said of his prime viewing spot. Some were already looking forward to the rest of the day. Christina Margiotta, of Elmsford, said she was heading home immediately afterward to nish cooking the big meal. We left grandma home cooking the turkey, so were good, she said. And Greg Packer, of Huntington, said he would be at the stores as soon as they open. I expect turkey, and I expect shopping, he said. A few blocks away, a line had already formed outside a Best Buy store, which was scheduled to open at 6 p.m.PARADEFROM PAGE 1WASHINGTON (MCT ) Facing faint job prospects and mounting student loans, Courtney Schlottman did what many others her age have done, and moved back in with a parent. She became one more data point contributing to the nations stunted rate of household formation. Thats a fancy way to describe the rate at which grown children leave the nest or depart the world of roommates for their own places. Derived from Census Bureau data, its an important economic indicator because, when normal, it portends a healthy housing sector, which in turn bodes well for the wider economy. Statistics arent high on the list of worries for Schlottman, 23, a would-be educator who graduated from Bloomsburg University last year. Shes moved back in with her father in Reading, Pa., while riding out an underperforming economic recovery. In order for me to be nancially stable, I have to live with my father, she said. Im hoping its not much longer, maybe a year or two. But going to interviews and not hearing anything back, its not promising. My hope is one or two years from now I can get a full-time job. Since 1965, the number of households has grown at a rate of 1.5 percent annually, according to census data, and thats meant about 1.3 million new ones every year. But since the Great Recession began in December 2007, and going well beyond its end in June 2009, the rate of new households has slowed sharply. The number of households, via quarterly Census Bureau data, (suggests) were only adding about 600,000 to 700,000 this year, said David Crowe, the chief economist for the National Association of Home Builders. Schlottman personies why economists worry about the agging household-formation rate. Unable to nd full-time work, shes underemployed, working as a college-educated teachers aide and forced to live at home in order to pay off student loans. Multiply her plight across the economy, and theres a huge ripple effect. While younger adults make up a relatively small proportion of heads of households, they account for almost three-quarters of the overall shortfall in household formation, Timothy Dunne, who was then a vice president at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, said in an August 2012 report, citing numbers that havent improved much. Workers aged 20 to 34 are vital to foot trafc in shopping malls, sales at automobile dealerships and the pace of new homes being built. For all that to happen, however, there must be more jobs for them. How do you get household formation moving? It means getting the economy moving faster, more jobs, said Jack Kleinhenz, the chief economist for the National Retail Federation.Struggles of younger workers ripple through US economy WASHINGTON (MCT ) This year, several states have done something thats become politically impossible in Congress: They raised taxes to pay for transportation improvements. From liberal Maryland to conservative Wyoming, states are enacting a variety of tax and fee increases to pay for transportation. Pennsylvania became the latest this month with a measure that will gener ate billions of dollars for roads, bridges and transit. It lifts the cap on taxes on the price of gasoline at the wholesale level, meaning drivers ultimately will pay more at the pump. Theyll also pay more for drivers licenses and trafc violations. Unlike Washington, we proved that by working together we can deliver and bring the quality transportation system that Pennsylvanians expect and deserve, said Gov. Tom Corbett, a Republican who signed the bill on Monday. Earlier this year, Virginia enacted a landmark transportation law that will provide $3.4 billion over the next ve years for transportation projects, including highways, mass transit, passenger rail, airports and seaports. We know that other states are looking at what were doing, said Virginia Transportation Secretary Sean Connaughton. Some conservative groups have grumbled about the tax increases and plan to challenge the lawmakers who supported them. But infrastructure spending is popular with the public, and its rarely a losing issue. Most voters under stand the need to do this, said G. Terry Madonna, a professor of public affairs at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pa. The current federal transportation law will lapse by the end of next year, and unless Congress makes drastic changes, more states will be left to fend for themselves.

Rick Scott is waiving shing license requirements for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The governor and state wildlife ofcials have declared Friday, Nov. 29 a license-free freshwater shing day and Saturday, Nov. 30 a license-free saltwater shing day. License-free shing days serve as a great opportunity for families to enjoy the incredible shing opportunities that Florida has to offer, Scott said in a statement. After the Thanksgiving holiday, families will be able to head to the water with their visiting guests and experience some of the best shing in the world. Each year, the state authorizes eight license-free shing days to help grow the shing industry and promote conservation stewardship. All other shing and boating rules and regulations still apply. In addition, the states sh and wildlife agency runs promotion programs that allow anglers to win prizes for catching and documenting certain species of sh. Beginning in 2014, all of the sanctioned shing days will fall on the same weekend days from year to year. Ofcials hope the regular schedule will encourage anglers and businesses to plan shing trips around the events. MIAMI (AP) A South Florida man is facing up to 20 years behind bars after pleading guilty to fraud through a company called Fly High Investments. Court records show that 27-year-old Daniel Paez pleaded guilty this week to securities fraud and will be sentenced Feb. 4. In addition to the prison time, Paez could be ned up to $250,000. Prosecutors say Paez obtained at least $500,000 from investors between September 2010 and April 2012 by promising them a guaranteed, xed rate of return and ability to withdraw money whenever they wished. Paez used telephone solicitation and the Internet to attract investors. Instead, authorities say Paez spent most of the investors money in gambling casinos and for his personal benet. BIG PINE KEY (AP) Authorities have identied the victims of a Florida Keys murder-suicide as a Texas couple with a criminal past. The Monroe County Sheriffs Ofce reports that 49-year-old Jim Ovecka and 54-year-old Michelle Chapman were found dead Monday morning on Big Pine Key. Their car was running with a hose running from the tailpipe to a back win dow. But investigators say Ovecka used a handgun to shoot Chapman in the head, and then to shoot himself. The couple previously owned of a seafood restaurant in Corpus Christi, Texas. They were accused of theft after customers began complaining in late 2011 of overcharges to their credit cards. Ovecka and Chapman were arrested in Tucson, Ariz., earlier this year. They were sentenced in September to 10 years of probation and ordered to pay back around half of the $200,000 they stole. JACKSONVILLE (AP) The Florida woman awaiting a new trial in a controversial stand your ground case is free on bond. First Coast News reports that Marissa Alexander was released from jail Wednesday. According to the Duval County Clerk of Court, she must remain under house arrest and electronic monitoring while awaiting trial. In 2012, Alexander was sentenced to a mandatory 20-year prison sentence for ring what she insisted was a warning shot during a ght with her husband. She tried to invoke Floridas stand your ground law but the judge threw out her self-defense claim, noting that she could have run out of the house to escape her husband but instead got the gun and went back inside. An appeals court ruled in September that the judge in the case gave improper jury instructions, and a new trial has been set for next year. TAMPA (AP) The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Ofce recently got a tip a stolen vehicle had been seen near the University of South Florida. Investigators sent deputies to the area, found the car and arrested the two men inside. Both were charged with grand theft auto. The tip didnt come from an alert citizen. It came from a tag reader that reads license plates from passing vehicles, a process similar to the one used to bill motorists on toll roads in Tampa Bay and throughout the state. Unlike that system, though, the sheriffs ofce tag reader sends the license plate information through the National Crime Information Center and Florida Crime Information Center databases. If a hit arises a stolen car, say, or a car registered to someone with an outstanding arrest warrant the system ags that information for deputies. The tag reader is the latest weapon in a growing arsenal of high-tech devices used by law enforcement agencies throughout the country. Police departments and sheriffs ofces say the systems ability to process thousands of license plates a day is an effective, low-cost way of solving car thefts and catching criminals. The notion, though, that the government is captur ing information about the whereabouts of thousands of law-abiding motorists every day has raised privacy concerns. The growing popularity of tag readers prompted the American Civil Liberties Union to conduct a national study on the issue this summer. The real problem is what happens with that data that they collected about you, said Florida ACLU spokesman Baylor Johnson. Who then has access to that data? If you have done nothing wrong, there is no reason they should keep that data. Hillsborough Countys tag reader consists of two cameras installed on a pole at 15th Street and 122nd Avenue and has been in use for about a year. The tag reader software was included when the sheriffs ofce received a $1.3 million federal grant in 2010 for equipment and installation of the Eye on Crime surveillance system in the neighborhoods around USF. The $25,000 device is the only one in Hillsborough County; its results will determine whether the pilot program is broadened. So far, its been a hit with authorities. The system has been extremely successful, said Major J.R. Burton, who oversees the sheriffs ofce District I operations where the tag reader system is located. I would love to see it expanded. The systems value to law enforcement is its ability to record huge numbers of license plates and run that information through crime databases. For instance, the two cameras installed near USF read 1.3 million tags over a 90-day period, a rate almost incalculably higher than deputies would have been able to do on their own. The tag reader system recorded 1,159 hits, including stolen plates, stolen vehicles, vehicles used in commission of a crime, wanted persons and missing persons. Using information from the tag readers, the sheriffs ofce has been able to recover eight stolen vehicles in the last 90-day cycle, Burton said. We love it, he said. If you can solve a handful of cases you ordinarily wouldnt solve, why wouldnt you invest in it? The cameras are useful in other ways, too, Burton said. When someone shot bullets into a car on 15th Street, not far from where the tag readers are installed, investigators reviewed the video, saw the car and its license plate, and went to the home of the person to whom the vehicle was registered. Although the case remains under investigation, deputies have been able to advance the case with help from the tag reader cameras, Burton said. In my book, it paid for itself that day, Burton said. That was a lead we would have never have had.Electronic tag readers are solving crimes AP PHOTOImages from tag reading camera systems are monitored at the Hillsborough County Sheris Oce District One.

ORLANDO (Orlando Sentinel) NASA is in the midst of a huge yard sale at Kennedy Space Center, peddling unused hangars, assembly buildings, launch complexes and even a landing strip to commercial space companies. But at the request of U.S. Rep. John Mica, R-Fla., Congress soon may be asking whether the space agency is cleaning out the closets thoroughly enough. NASA is trying to save millions of dollars it spends maintaining rocket-launch properties it no longer needs because of the space shuttles retirement while hoping to fuel the emerging commercial space industry at Cape Canaveral. Mica said he will call for a congressional hearing early next year to explore NASAs options for land or buildings that might no longer be needed among the 140,000 acres and scores of facilities at KSC. Mica has not suggested that NASA is hoarding assets. But he said he wants to have a look as part of his ongoing crusade to spotlight federal property thats wasted or underused. At stake is how extensively KSC is transformed into a multiuser spaceport, with the Air Force, NASA and commercial space companies working side by side to develop and launch or y whatever they need. Leaving the facilities unused is not without cost. A report issued by NASAs inspector general in February estimated that the agency is spending more than $1.3 million a year to maintain the shuttle landing strip, and as many as seven launch-related facilities are underutilized or may not be needed anymore, costing $29 million a year. NASA already has put a few facilities in private hands, while others have been mothballed or demolished to reduce maintenance costs.Congressman: Has NASA let go of enough unused property?

The Sun /Friday, November 29, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 7 NATIONAL / WORLD NEWS TACLOBAN, Philippines (AP) The teenager with unruly hair in a ponytail wipes tears from her eyes as she holds her feverish 3-year-old brother, who clings to her and lets out a sob of his own now and then. They have been inseparable ever since they lost their parents to Typhoon Haiyans tsunami-like storm surge. The water was so strong. Also the wind and the rain, 15-yearold Shylyny Therese Negru said. Our house was cut into two. She and her three surviving brothers, ages 3, 6 and 12, are among an unknown number of children in the eastern Philippines who lost their parents to the massive Nov. 8 storm. Zafrin Chowdry, a spokeswoman for UNICEF, said the agency is helping to rapidly trace the families of affected children and to connect them with relatives. The death toll from Haiyan, one of the strongest typhoons on record, has risen to 5,560 with 1,757 others missing, ofcials said Thursday. The United Nations said at least 14 million people have been affected, including 1.8 million displaced children. The storm almost completely attened the seaside neighborhood where Shylynys family lived in Tacloban, a coastal city devastated by the typhoon. She and her brothers now live with their mothers aunt in Burauen, a farming town about 40 kilometers from Tacloban. Friends gave them the clothes they now wear. It doesnt matter if we lose everything, as long as we can have our par ents here, said Shylyny, a high school student who dreams of becoming an accountant or a journalist. She accepts that her parents are dead; she only wishes to nd their bodies, and the body of a brother who did not survive. Shylyny said she climbed to the ceiling of the familys two-story home when the water suddenly rose. She and her brothers clutched wires and anything they could hold on to. The last time I looked, my mother was just beside me, but when I looked again she was gone, she sobbed. Her 12-year-old brother, Richard Chris Negru, held on to their mothers hand, but she could not move because her legs were pinned under debris. He said she told him to hold on to his younger brothers, to take care of his siblings and to be a good boy. Then she let go, and was swallowed by the rising water. The childrens father was able to carry the two younger boys to the ceiling, but he, too, disappeared in the water soon after. Richard Chris took the two boys and they managed to reach a neighbors rooftop. Shylyny tried to save her 10-year-old brother, Richard Lawrence Dacuno, who was mentally disabled. She held him but struggled as the water rose, and when she was hit by debris she lost her grip. I thought I would not survive because I really did not know how to swim and I was already feeling weak, she said. She grabbed a neighbor by his shirt, and he helped her reach higher ground. She found her other brothers in the neighbors rooftop. Richard Lawrences body was found in the stairs of a neighbors house later that day. Rescuers placed his body by the roadside with oth er corpses. The siblings grandfather Ricardo Negru Jr. left him there overnight to look for Shylynys cousin. When he returned, the body had been collected. More than two weeks later, the family is still searching. The grandfather said the boy was likely buried in one of the citys mass graves, but he did know where.Orphans in Philippines speak of typhoons horrors AP PHOTOIn this Nov. 21 photo, Shylyny Therese Negru, 15, holds her youngest brother, Rainier Aaron Dacuno, 3, as they sit in a relatives home in the town of Burauen, the Philippines. $5M bail for suspect in deaths of mom, childrenPARSONS, Kan. (AP) The man suspected in the deaths of a southeast Kansas woman and her three children and arrested after a massive manhunt was being held Wednesday on $5 million bail. Labette District Judge Robert Fleming signed an order that gives prosecutors until Dec. 10 to le charges against David Cornell Bennett Jr., 22, of Cherryvale, who was arrested late Tuesday. Bennett is being held in connection to the killings of 29-year-old Cami Umbarger and her children. Their bodies were found late Monday night in Parsons, about 35 miles from Independence. Details about how the victims were killed or their relationship to Bennett have not been released by authorities.Police: Sisters locked in, abused, watched by camerasTUCSON, Ariz. (LA Times) The two girls, ages 12 and 13, stood at a neighbors house shortly before 4 a.m. Tuesday and began pounding on the door, knocking frantically on a nearby window. They were barefoot and trembling. The couple inside opened the door and was shocked when the girls told them they had been imprisoned in a home across the way. Tucson police on Wednesday said three sisters 12, 13 and 17 had been conned to their bedrooms for many months, where music or a static sound played at all hours and surveillance cameras pointed at their beds 24 hours a day. Sometimes they werent allowed to go to the bathroom, forced to relieve themselves in their bedroom closets, police said.LA-area man fires on police, holds 2 hostagesINGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) A gunman red several shots at a pair of police ofcers, hitting one, and held two hostages for nearly nine hours but all came away from the standoff without serious injuries. The worst injury Wednesday occurred when an Inglewood policeman was shot in his bulletproof vest. He suffered blunt force injuries and was set to spend the night in another hospital as a precaution, police said. The second ofcer in was not hit but was hurt when she fell down in the chaos that followed, Madia said. She was treated at a hospital and released. The 45-year-old gunman and the girlfriend and her 14-year-old daughter who he held hostage in their house all came away unharmed, police said.Gay couples sue to block Texas marriage banAUSTIN, Texas (Cox Newspapers) Two same-sex couples, including two Austin women legally married in Massachusetts, have asked a federal court to void Texas ban on gay marriage, arguing that it improperly discriminates against an unpopular minority and treats them like second-class citizens. Citing a string of U.S. Supreme Court rulings that have lent momentum to gay rights activists, the lawsuit asks U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia of San Antonio to issue an injunction immediately blocking Texas from enforcing a law and state constitutional amendment limiting marriage to opposite-sex couples. | NATION rf nrtbr trr rf n tb rfrntfb rfntbr r rf trrr r fnr trrr trtrtr f t tbtr frtrrnbrtfr ntfrfttft brbrttrt rtrfrt f r rtrbrt $100$110 r n$220 n$195 n$205n$225 n$190 $149 f f ntb f f f n $104 frfrn$250 trb rfrrfntfbfrbffbfbftfbfbfbfb tnttnfbffbbffbntfbfrfbbbfbfntnb bfbbffbbfbbbbbffbf fbbbbbfbbfbbfbffb f ff f 50451980 D 0ItaLke an r r r r /Ar r r r r /lU1dli lLinO.l.R I ') I WCER VTWJ K % W1 I I 1(I) lI0OFF 1'!*:OI" IIIvII', CA U I'PURCEL4SES ON YOUR DELLARDIS CARD.II ICl' NUMBER OF REWARDMI511,I I'YOU CAN I"OFF= VAUD 1' aII 2943A 24valo17)airi+illlll` Ideli extmkemn hm hagsnyd'&(1l(1lI I (1) I 1 & sY`. .501/110 (I)PERMANENTLYREDUCED michael kors li 1 1 .....a6J oas m.,./IreWatches JewelryAccessoriesLingerie

As President Bashar Assads forces press ahead with a crushing offensive, rebels are increasingly hitting back by sending volleys of mortar shells crashing into central Damascus, hoping eventually to loosen the leaders rm hold on the capital. Dozens of shells have struck the historic city center and surrounding areas in the past two weeks, launched from rebel-held neighborhoods on the outskirts. Mortar shells, many homemade, are known to be imprecise so its not possible to determine whether the rebels re them randomly or at specic targets. Much of the shelling in recent weeks has centered on Christian-majority areas in the Old City, where many residents now barricade themselves at home and schools are half empty. Businessmen say sales have plunged, because people no longer dare to go out. Shells have become part of our everyday life, said Jean Nahhas, an 18-year-old business administration student who lives in the predominantly Christian area of Qassaa, which has been particularly hard hit by the shelling. Nahhas, whose uncle was killed in shelling a month ago, said he and other Syrians have established a routine, going home early and calling to check on family and friends after each explosion. Assad retains strong support in the capital, particularly among minority sects including Christians, Alawites, Druse and Shiites, making them likely targets. Foreign embassies and schools also are frequently hit. Rebels are overwhelmingly from the countrys Sunni majority sect, and Christians are convinced that Islamic extremists among the ghters are deliberately targeting their neighborhoods. They re randomly to force Christians to leave, Damascus-based Greek Orthodox Patriarchal Assistant Bishop Luca al-Khoury said in a telephone interview. On Thursday, a mortar shell landed inside the Russian Embassy in Damascus, killing one Syrian and wounding nine, including guards, the Russian Foreign Ministry said. The embassy building sustained minor damage. More than 100 people have been killed in mortar attacks on Damascus since this summer, according to reports by the Syrian state news agency SANA and the British-based activist group, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. That has punctured the sense of nor malcy that the government has tried hard to cultivate. For the rst two years after the uprising against Assad began in March 2011, the ancient city with its historic markets, mosques and churches was largely insulated from the bloodshed and destruction that plagued other areas.Fear in Syrian capital as mortar shells rain down AP PHOTOThis Tuesday, Nov. 12 photo shows damage from a mortar strike at the Yuhana al-Dimashqi School in Damascus, Syria.

Thats a meager amount for the economy of a nation of nearly 80 million people its less than one months worth of Irans oil production and just 7 percent of Irans overseas cash that remains frozen under the sanctions. Iranians see the move as a much needed step toward a more normal economy after years of crippling ination and job losses. BEIJING (Washington Post) China said Thursday that it had sent warplanes to patrol its newly declared maritime air defense identication zone, ratcheting up a dispute over an island chain that has turned into a dangerous standoff in the region. The move came after Japan and South Korea said Thursday that they had sent surveillance aircraft into the area. The United States has joined many of Chinas neighbors in condemning its decision earlier this week to declare the area a defense identication zone, and deed Beijing by ying two U.S. B-52 bombers through the area Tuesday. Experts say Chinas decision to establish the zone has inamed an already tense situation with Japan, and raised the possibility of military conict. WASHINGTON (AP) Destroying Syrias deadliest chemical weapons on land would come with vexing diplomatic and security problems as well as environmental issues. To avoid those potential troubles, U.S. ofcials say, the Obama administration is exploring the use of a government-owned ship to carry out the disposal in international waters. Under a plan yet to be approved, the chemicals would be transported to the MV Cape Ray in the Mediterranean Sea. The nearly 700-foot ship, based in Portsmouth, Va., and owned by the Transportation Departments Maritime Administration, would be outtted with a special system to neutralize the chemical material. U.S. warships would provide an escort and security. BANGKOK (AP) Thailands prime minister begged protesters Thursday to call off their sustained anti-government demonstrations and negotiate an end to the nations latest crisis. But the protesters marched instead to new tar gets, including the national police headquarters, where they cut power lines. Yingluck Shinawatra issued the plea after she easily defeated a no-condence vote pushed by her opponents, who are heavily outnumbered in Parliament but have taken to the streets to demand not only her ouster but changes that would make the country less democratic. They want to uproot the political machine of former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, Yinglucks brother, who was ousted by a military coup in 2006.Karzai: US drone strike killed child, may not sign deal KABUL (Washington Post) Afghan President Hamid Karzai accused the United States of launching a drone strike that killed a 2-year-old child Thursday and vowed to not sign a long-term security agreement if similar attacks continue. In a statement, Karzai said a suspected U.S. pilot-less aircraft red into a house shortly before noon in Helmand province, killing the child and wounding two women. He said the information was relayed to him by Mohammad Naem, the governor of the province. Spokesmen for the U.S.-led coalition did not respond to requests for comment. The U.S. Embassy in Kabul referred questions to the interna tional coalition.Market bombings, attacks across Iraq kill 29BAGHDAD (AP) Three car bombs exploded at outdoor markets and on a street full of shops near Iraqs capital, the deadliest of a series of attacks across the country that killed at least 29 people Thursday, ofcials said.

So now, the question becomes this: How good is this Port Charlotte defense, anyway? So far, the answer has been awfully good. Elite, even. Is the defense good enough to carry the Pirates to a state seminal? That could be the question tonight when Port Charlotte faces East Lake in the Region 7A-3 nal. Yes, the offense featuring Traige McClary and the Pirates seven-headed monster at running back will have questions asked of it, too. But when the Eagles have been held under 40 points only twice all year, the question naturally drifts to a teams defense. After the Pirates clinical 35-0 victory against Melbourne last week, the question became how good could that defense be? The skys the limit, defensive lineman Greg Patton said in agreement. I tell you what, we come in to the lm room, to practice, we just grind every day in practice. The skys the limit for us. It was hard to digest there might be more to this defense, a group that decimated Melbourne. But that seemed to be the case for a unit that features eight seniors.

They are left just man to man most afternoons, talking about opposing receivers, money, life, family you name it. Ive done what hes said the whole season, and its worked, Banks said motioning to Revis. The second-round pick from Mississippi State has had a lot to discuss with Revis. In addition to becoming the third player in the organization to contract MRSA, the staph infection resistant to antibiotics that has shortened the seasons of kicker Lawrence Tynes and guard Carl Nicks, Banks also went through a stretch during which he gave up scoreboard-changing plays and a shoulder injury sustained Nov. 17 against Atlanta. But always, there was Revis in his ear and on the opposite side of the defense, locking up the No. 1 receiver while Banks handled the NFL: Tampa Bay SCOREBOARDDetroit 40, Green Bay 10 Dallas 31, Oakland 24 Baltimore 22, Pittsburgh 20 Coverage, PAGE 3 BUCS AT PANTHERSWHO: Tampa Bay (3-8) at Carolina (8-3) WHEN: Sunday, 1 p.m. WHERE: Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte, N.C.

Miami avoided calamity by drumming Virginia last Saturday. A victory over the Panthers and more than a bit of help over the weekend could propel the Hurricanes to a rematch with the Semi noles in the ACC title game.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Central FloridaSibling rivalry contributes to Knights dream yearWhen Cliff McCray Sr. put his young twin sons, Jordan and Justin, on bicycles for the rst time and shoved them off, it did not take long to spark a competition. The twins have always thrived thanks to natural rivalry. From the classroom to backyard football to the trampoline or anything else, the brothers passion for being the best would show up. When they hopped on two wheels for the rst time all those years ago, the challenge became who could stay upright for longer. Jordan stayed on the bike the longest, Cliff McCray Sr. recalled. Once Jordan won at that, it always something else that would come up. That has long been the nature of the relationship between Central Florida senior offensive linemen Jordan and Justin McCray. Today, they remain just as competitive, and their similarities are just as striking. Knights center Joey Grant is 6-foot-2, 282-pounds. He may be the biggest separation in the lives of the McCray twins. As No. 19 UCFs starting left and right guards, the McCrays are lined up on either side of Grant. The identical twins are hard to tell apart, if not for their differing No. 63 (Jordan) and No. 64 (Justin) jerseys. Both are listed on the UCF roster at 6-foot-3, 310-pounds. They lift almost identical amounts in the weight room and both were voted team captains. Each has started 24 consecutive games. Even their SAT scores were separated by 10 points. Both have NFL aspirations. They are so much the same, really, in so many ways, Cliff McCray Sr. said. Its almost hard to pinpoint the differences.By PAUL TENORIOORLANDO SENTINEL SIBLINGS | 4 BULLS AT KNIGHTSWHO: South Florida (2-8) at UCF (9-1) WHEN: Today, 8 p.m. WHERE: Bright House Networks Field, Orlando TV: ESPN RADIO: 970 AM, 1220 AMSTATE SCHEDULETODAY Miami (8-3) at Pittsburgh (6-5), 3:30 p.m. FIU (1-10) at FAU (5-6), 3 p.m. S.

But the Eastern Illinois University football players are plenty thankful for the season they are having. Nose guard Fanti, who played for Venice High School, and linebacker Haynes, a Charlotte High School graduate, are at school waiting to learn which team the Panthers will face in a home playoff game on Dec. 7. Eastern Illinois, which enters the postseason with a 11-1 record, received a rst-round bye. The team nished the regular season No. 2 in the Football Championship Subdivision coaches poll. Its great to have the bye week, redshirt sophomore Fanti said Tuesday after he and Haynes were named to the all-Ohio Valley Conference second team. You get some time to rest up and heal. EIU won its second consecutive conference championship, going 8-0 in conference play. Eastern Illinois plays the winner of Saturdays ButlerTennessee State game. The Panthers beat Tennessee State, 34-16, in late October.It was more hard earned, junior Haynes said. We had a target on our back. Last year we snuck up on a couple teams. Everybody knew about us this season. Fanti and Haynes were a big reason the defense was so dominant. The team ranked second in total defense among nine conference teams, allowing a conference-low nine rushing touchdowns. Our defense really stepped up, Haynes said. Everybody knows about our offense. They really dont talk about our defense. Fanti had 38 tackles with a team-high 13 for loss. He had ve sacks and three fumble recoveries, both second on the squad, and a forced fumble. He was second in the conference in fumbles recovered, third in tackles for loss and ninth in sacks. He cited a year of experience and improved conditioning for his standout season. He said he was able to lift 100 pounds more on the squat and 70 more on the bench press this season. I feel a lot stronger, Fanti said. I feel quicker. He led the team with eight tackles and added a sack in a win over Southeast Missouri State, whose spread option offense left a lot of one-on-ones, he said. I thought I could take advantage of that. Haynes didnt match his statistics of last year, when he led the team with 101 tackles. Yet he said he didnt play the last quarter or half in the blowout victories.

The Sun /Friday, November 29, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 best of the rest. That was until Sundays 24-21 victory against the Lions, when Revis went down near the end of the rst half with a groin injury. Somebody had to take over the job of covering Calvin Johnson, who had caught four passes for 61 yards to that point. The articial turf at Ford Field became the proving ground for Banks. I was sitting with him on the sideline, and (Revis) told me how to play him off the line and how to jam him inside, Banks said. The Bucs considered not assigning one player to Johnson. But that required a drastic change to the game plan. It wasnt an easy decision, Bucs coach Greg Schiano said. As a matter of fact, we took the eld thinking that we might just play right and left and whoever got him got him. And then we get on the eld, and it was just a gut feeling that, Lets get Johnthan on him. Johnthan had gotten banged, so its not like hed had a full week of practice either. But you just kind of sometimes, you get a feeling. Banks relied on his instincts following his junior year to remain at Mississippi State rather than enter the draft. He grew up in Maben (population 871) just a half-hour drive from campus in Starkville, Miss., where he cared for his girlfriend and the couples infant son, K.J. Staying at home can sometimes be a good trait for a corner, but Banks beneted from the decision on and off the eld, winning the Jim Thorpe award as the nations top defensive back. But there are no receivers like the 6-foot5, 236-pound Johnson, and Banks rose to the challenge. In the second half, Johnson had three receptions for 54 yards on eight targets, including the play that resulted in a game-clinching interception. My condence has always been high, Banks said. Ive always thought I could guard anybody. But that was big for my condence because during your rookie season you have those ups and downs. That was big. Banks has never been one to lack condence even when things were unraveling earlier this season. Schiano said he wasnt not surprised. Thats the guy we drafted, Schiano said. When I spoke to (Mississippi State coach) Dan Mullen before the draft, he said, This is my guy. He is a football player. He may not be the fastest guy on the clock, Greg, but this guy will step up. Hes a two-time captain. And hes just a leader, and he plays and hes mature. And sure enough, he is. Thats what we drafted, and hes living up to that. And as he gets more experience, I think hes going to get better. This week, Revis is iffy with the groin strain, and Banks might be called on to cover the Panthers top receiver, Steve Smith. Since Day 1, we respected (Banks). We knew he was a great corner, Bucs linebacker Lavonte David said. He won the Thorpe Award in college, so we knew he was a lockdown-caliber corner.BUCSFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTODetroit wide receiver Calvin Johnson is tackled by Tampa Bay cornerback Johnthan Banks during Sundays game. Banks drew the coverage assignment after starter Darrelle Revis was injured on a hunch by the coaching sta. CHARLOTTE, N.C. Steve Smith spent his childhood emulating NFL players and dreaming of playing professional football. Now in his 13th season with the Carolina Panthers, Smith said its still not enough. Now that Im here, being here isnt satisfy ing, Smith said of his NFL career. I want to be something special. I want to be one of those special guys. Smith is entering special territory. He needs 51 yards on Sunday against Tampa Bay to move past Hines Ward and Derrick Mason into 20th place in yards receiving. He ranks 25th in receptions, last week passing Hall of Famer Steve Largent. I look at Jerry Rice and to be, not in the same category, but on the same list thats pretty cool, Smith said. My agent told me I passed Steve Largent. Im a huge Steve Largent fan. I respect the heck out of him. I think what he did was remarkable. I just passed him, and thats pretty cool. To see my name next to his, (above) his, thats pretty cool. Its humbling when I read it. But its still not enough. Smith has 823 receptions for 12,033 yards, but said his goal is to nish his career with at least 1,000 catches and close to 14,000 yards receiving. I want to be in the top 10, Smith said. It might take a couple of more seasons but Smith said thats ne. He remains productive and thinks he has a few good years left. At 5-foot-9, 189 pounds, Smith has always been viewed as an undersized receiver. But what he lacks in height he makes up for in mental toughness and desire. Its his mentality that he brings into the stadium, quarterback Cam Newton said. Hes not a regular player. In cartoon world, he would be a super (hero). His mentality is different. His approach is different. What gets him going the most is when people say he cant. Him at the age hes at right now, hes still defying the odds on so many different levels. There is nobody Smith respects more than his mother, Florence Young. My mom did such a good job with what she had, Smith said of growing up in inner city Los Angeles. She drilled a lot of things into my head positive and negative. She was always telling me about sports and my dreams of sports. She was like If this doesnt work out, you better have a backup plan. That served as motivation of sorts for Smith. He purposely didnt have a backup plan, saying playing in the NFL is all I wanted to do. Offensive coordinator Mike Shula describes Smith as ageless. Hes just so tough to cover. Yeah, hes one of our bell cows, Shula said. Smith remains Newtons go-to receiver on third and fourth down situations, where he has a combined 19 receptions perhaps none bigger than last weeks 19-yard catch on fourth-and-10 on Carolinas game-winning drive against Miami. Steve wants to succeed in the worst kind of way, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. Smith climbs receiver record bookBy STEVE REEDASSOCIATED PRESS NFL: CarolinaVeteran needs 51 yards to pass Ward in total yards AROUND THE NFL WEEK 13 LIONS 40, PACKERS 10DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Lions were dominant Thursday after a shaky start and snapped a few losing streaks. Matthew Stafford made up for some mistakes with three touchdown passes, including one to Calvin Johnson, to help Detroit score 37 consecutive points to beat Green Bay. The Lions (7-5) had lost their last two games, five consecutive against Green Bay and a franchise-record nine in a row in the Thanksgiving showcase. The Packers (5-6-1) have a five-game winless streak for the first time since 2008, showing how valuable Aaron Rodgers is for the franchise. Rodgers has missed four-plus games since fracturing his left collarbone. Matt Flynn became the fourth starting quarterback for Green Bay this year and was sacked seven times, once by Ndamukong Suh for a safety. Flynn didnt fare as well as he did in his last start for Green Bay against the same opponent. He was 10 of 20 for 139 yards with an interception and two fumbles. In the last game of the 2011 regular season, Flynn threw for 480 yards and six touchdowns in a 45-41 win over Detroit.LIONS 40, PACKERS 10Green Bay 0 10 0 0 10 Detroit 0 17 9 14 40 Second Quarter DetFG Akers 27, 14:51.

COWBOYS 31, RAIDERS 24ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) DeMarco Murray did the finishing work for the Dallas Cowboys. Backup Lance Dunbar made his job a lot easier. Murray ran for three touchdowns, Dunbar had a career-high 82 yards rushing and the Cowboys overcame Oaklands fumble return for a score on the opening kickoff to beat the Raiders. Murray had 63 yards rushing but did most of his damage near the goal line, including a 7-yard score to put Dallas ahead for good early in the fourth quarter. Dunbar, who went out with a left knee sprain, sparked the tying and go-ahead touchdown drives in the second half, highlighted by a 45-yard run that led to a 4-yard scoring pass from Tony Romo to Dez Bryant. The Cowboys (7-5) moved two games above .500 for the first time since late last season. The Raiders (4-8) are guaranteed an 11th straight season without a winning record since going to the Super Bowl during the 2002 season.

MISSED FIELD GOALSNone. RAVENS 22, STEELERS 20BALTIMORE (AP) Justin Tucker kicked five field goals, and Baltimore stopped a 2-point conversion with 1:03 left to survive a comeback bid by Pittsburgh and escape. After Pittsburgh scored on a 1-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Jerricho Cotchery to get within two points, Roethlisbergers conversion pass slipped through the hands of Emmanuel Sanders, who was screened by Chykie Brown. The victory provided the Ravens (6-6) with their first winning streak since September and pushed them ahead of the Steelers (5-7) and four other teams in the race for the final wild-card slot in the AFC. It also avenged a 19-16 loss to their division rivals last month. Tucker connected on kicks of 43, 34, 38, 45 and 48 yards after Joe Flacco threw a first-quarter touchdown pass to Torrey Smith. The Steelers had only 98 yards of offense in the first half and trailed 10-0, but they nearly matched that on their first possession of the third quarter an 80-yard march in seven plays that took just 2:55 and featured a no-huddle attack and a 43-yard run by rookie LeVeon Bell. It was only the fourth touchdown allowed by the Ravens in six home games this season, and Jacoby Jones responded by a returning the ensuing kickoff 73 yards to Pittsburghs 27-yard line. Jones might have gone farther, but he appeared to alter his path to avoid Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, who was standing on the left sideline. Jones was brought down by Cortez Allen and came up complaining. The Ravens managed only a field goal from the good field position to increase their lead to nine. Flacco found Torrey Smith for a 7-yard touchdown pass early in the first quarter to give the Ravens the lead. The closest the Steelers came to scoring in the first half was when they lined up for a 50-yard field goal attempt that was aborted, with the ball ending up in kicker Shaun Suishams hands for a 12-yard loss. It was unclear whether the play was a deliberate fake or if Suisham mistimed the snap and arrived at the ball too early. A Steelers-Ravens game is always intense, especially when there are playoff implications, and there were three post-whistle scuffles in the opening quarter alone. ENGLEWOOD, Colo. John Fox joined the players and coaches for their post-practice huddle on the football eld Thursday. Amid hails, hugs and handshakes, he told them how thankful he was for his health, their hard work and his good friend Jack Del Rio for running things while he was recovering from open-heart surgery. Of course, Fox also took the opportunity to do some coaching, imploring his players to focus on beating Kansas City this weekend so that when he ofcially returns to work Monday, hell have a rstplace team awaiting him. It hasnt been deter mined whether Fox will coach from the sideline or the booth for his rst game back, when the Broncos host the Tennessee Titans on Dec. 8. The team issued a statement Thursday saying that while no formal restrictions will be placed on his workload upon his return, he will continue to be monitored by our medical staff as his well-being remains our No. 1 priority. NFL announces dates of London games: The NFL has announced the dates of its three regular-season games in London next year, with the Dallas Cowboys playing the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10 on Nov. 9.

Antonio Cromartie did not practice for the second straight day because of an ailing hip, and the New York Jets cornerbacks status remains uncertain for Sundays game against Miami. San Francisco offensive coordinator Greg Roman said wide receiver Michael Crabtree is progressing well in practice and the team hopes he can play against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.

The 2015 Tour de France will begin with a short time trial around the Dutch city of Utrecht. Organizers say the race will begin on July 4 with a 8.5-mile race against the clock. Utrecht will also serve as host to the start of the second stage, but no further details were given. CORAL GABLES When Miami takes the eld for its regular-season nale today, the Hurricanes will not control their postseason destination. Three straight losses to Florida State, Virginia Tech and Duke mean Miami needs plenty of help to advance to its rst ACC Championship Game, but the Hurricanes arent out of the race for the Coastal Division crown and a win at Pittsburgh would keep their ACC hopes alive for at least one more day. The Hurricanes (8-3, 4-3 ACC) have chosen to focus on that ahead of their nal regular-season game. Miamis players and coaches havent wanted to talk about postseason honors, bowl possibilities or even the chilly weather that could force them to adjust in Pittsburgh. Instead, the focus remains solely on the Panthers (6-5, 3-4) and putting together Miamis rst nine-win season since 2009. Were just trying to prepare and execute today and get better tomorrow, (then) obviously play well against Pitt. The rest will take care of itself and will sort itself out, Hurricanes coach Al Golden said. Its really important for us to play well this week, try to get win number nine and then well move forward as a program for us to speculate on any of that is just premature. Its really about playing better this week than we did last week and getting ready for a Pitt team on the road. For Miami, which will need a win over Pittsburgh combined with losses by Duke and Virginia Tech to advance to the ACC title game against Atlantic Division champion Florida State, one of the biggest question marks this week is how its secondary will adjust after losing three players to injury. Cornerback Ladarius Gunter, who has started all 11 games this season for Miami, is out after straining his neck in Miamis 45-26 win over Virginia last week. Fellow corners Nate Dortch and Corn Elder will be out for the rest of the season after Miami announced this week the pair would be undergoing season-ending surgeries. In an effort to help Miami, which will have to try and nd a way to contain Pittsburgh quarterback Tom Savage and his dynamic receiving duo of Tyler Boyd and Devin Street, Kacy Rodgers will move from safety to corner. The Hurricanes will also likely get a boost with the expected return of Artie Burns, who injured his ankle against Duke. Sophomore Tracy Howard, who has a teamhigh four interceptions for Miami, also says he is ready for increased snaps if needed. We take the same approach all the time, Howard said. You know some guys are going to have to step up and I think those guys are ready. I think theyre prepared. The mood is good and everyones upbeat. Offensively, Miami is coming off an upand-down performance against Virginia. The Hurricanes managed just 90 rushing yards and while Stephen Morris completed 13-of-26 passes for 214 yards with a pair of touchdowns, offensive coordinator James Coley concedes his unit left multiple plays on the eld. Miami has to contend with one of the nations premier defensive players in tackle Aaron Donald. Donald, a nalist for the Nagurski Trophy and the Rotary Lombardi Award, leads the nation in tackles for loss with 2.4 per game. Hes college footballs active career leader with 28.5 sacks and his blocked extra point proved decisive in Pitts 17-16 win over Syracuse last week that made the Panthers bowl eligible.Canes still in play for ACC title gameBy CHRISTY CABRERA CHIRINOSSOUTH FLORIDA SUN SENTINEL COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Miami HURRICANES AT PANTHERSWHO: Miami (8-3, 4-3 ACC) at Pittsburgh (6-5, 3-4) WHEN: Today, 3:30 p.m. WHERE: Heinz Field, Pittsburgh TV: ABC RADIO: 99.3 FM AP PHOTOMiamis Rion Brown (15) battles for a rebound with George Washingtons Kevin Larsen in the second half on Thursday. FULLERTON, Calif. A career 39-percent shooter, Joe McDonald seemed an unlikely candidate to be the one to get the ball in his hands in a big moment. But when that moment arrived, George Washingtons sophomore guard made sure he didnt miss. He hit a game-tying layup with three seconds remaining to help the Colonials avoid a monumental collapse, and GW beat Miami 71-63 in over time in the opening game of the Wooden Legacy on Thursday morning. McDonalds clutch layup tied the game at 59 after the Colonials (5-0) had blown a late double-digit lead, and then he opened the scoring in overtime with a three-pointer from the left elbow to start a 12-2 run that secured the victory and kept GW undefeated. A series of big runs had staked GW to a 12-point lead with just over 10 minutes left, but Adams and the Canes stormed back to take a 59-57 lead with a minute remaining. Garrius Adams scored a game-high 17 points for the Hurricanes (3-3), 15 in the second half. Adams, a graduate guard, poured in 15 points in a 10-minute stretch to lead Miami on a 22-8 run, and it took its rst lead of the second half when Rion Brown nailed a pair of free throws to give the Hurricanes a 57-55 lead with 2:43 remaining, which they extended to 59-56 with just over a minute left. But Miami couldnt score on its nal three possessions. A free throw and McDonalds layup sent it to OT. GEO.

Kickoff for the latest high-stakes UCF game this historic season is at 8 p.m. and the game will air on ESPN. The McCray twins distinct bond was evident from birth. Their parents, Debra and Cliff McCray Sr., would put the two in their high chairs and both would pound their trays for food. Although they were placed in different classes beginning in kindergarten, they were nearly inseparable otherwise. Their mother, Brenda McCray, said she had to keep ve or six gallons of milk in the house while the twins were growing up with older brother, Cliff McCray Jr., who also played on the offensive line at UCF. The grocery bill was pretty intense, Brenda McCray said. The twins were over the weight limit for youth football growing up, and so neither played until they reached high school. The backyard games led to some delusions about which positions they might play. Justin McCray said he thought he was going to be a running back or tight end. Jordan McCray wanted to play defensive line. They had this idea they were going to be some guys with some good moves, Cliff McCray Sr. said. As they got older it dawned on them they might be linemen. The twins followed their brother, Cliff McCray Jr., to UCF. Though Cliff McCray Jr. is ve and a half years older, due to two medical redshirts he received for a heart condition, the three brothers got to play together on the Knights offensive line. You never really realize the signicance of it until you can look back, Cliff McCray Jr. said. A lot of different variables had to come to fruition for us to have that opportunity. When it happened, it was like, Wow, what a blessing. Now, Cliff McCray Jr. joins his parents in the stands to watch the twins. They have become crucial leaders, helping guide UCF (9-1, 6-0) to the best start in program history. The Knights are two wins away from an American Athletic Conference title.SIBLINGFROM PAGE 1 yGE,r 9GGjAj,WASb/ /------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Page 6 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, November 29, 2013 LUBBOCK, Texas Three months after emerging from a coma, 18-year-old football star Kenbriel Hearn scored the most memorable touchdown of his life. The Memphis High School senior suffered two strokes caused by a bleeding mass on his brain and spent three weeks on life support. When he awoke this past summer, his 5-foot-7 frame had withered from 160 pounds to 112. He was paralyzed on his right side and unable to walk or talk. Football was the last thing on his mind. Once regaining the ability to jog, Hearn found himself back in pads when his coach asked him to suit up for the nal home game. He gured he was on the sideline for moral support, but unbeknownst to him, both coaches had ar ranged for a special moment to highlight his road to recovery. With Memphis trailing 35-0 in the nal minute, Hearn was sent into the huddle and given directions to take the handoff and go. He jogged 48 yards to the end zone, where players from both teams cheered him. He briey knelt to pray as his mother, Tammy Henderson, looked on, tears streaming down her face. It wasnt the rst touchdown Hearn scored in his three seasons as a Memphis receiver and safety, but it was his sweetest. I will remember this one more because I battled through so much, said Hearn, who continues speech and physical therapy. It was pretty great. Cyclones coach Andy Correll hatched his plan the week before the Nov. 1 game in Memphis, about 85 miles southeast of Amarillo in the Texas Panhandle. He emailed his counterpart at Stratford about his plan to let Hearn have one play. Stratford coach Eddie Metcalf went for it. But with the Stratford Elks working on a shutout, Correll thought Metcalf might not want to spoil the accomplishment. During a meeting at mideld, Correll suggested just allowing Hearn to pick up a rst down. But Metcalf insisted he take it all the way to the end zone. Just let the boy go, he told Correll. Metcalf later explained it was an easy response, just as good as being part of three state titles. The shutout didnt mean anything in comparison to what that kid would do to me and to our kids, Metcalf said. Hearn rst thought his mother would be angry. My second thought was he cant be serious, he said. Hearns mother had been clued in earlier in the day that her son would get into the game. She kept mum but acknowledged it was difcult not to tell anyone. When he got the ball and started running tears just started streaming down my face, said Henderson, 43. Him taking the eld that last day, it was just joyful. Correll and his players, who started each practice this fall with a prayer for Hearn, were ecstatic after Hearns TD. All our kids were giving him hugs, Correll said. He was bawling and I was, too. He just said, Thank you, and that he loved me, and of course I said the same thing back. Just a few months earlier, Henderson faced the real prospect of losing her son. Doctors told her the mass on her sons brain was a congenital cavernoma a collection of small blood vessels in the central nervous system. They occur in the general population once in 1,000 people. Hearns cavernoma was at the base of his skull on his brain stem. Bleeding from it caused Hearns rst stroke. Three days after surgery to remove the mass, he had another stroke, affecting his breathing and swallowing. CPR brought him back to life and being on life support allowed the healing to continue. The seriousness of a cavernoma depends on its location, said Dr. Ben Baronia, who was not involved in Hearns treatment and is an assistant professor of surgery at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine in Lubbock. Cavernomas can be fatal, especially when they are near areas of the brain that control breathing, he said. I think thats a remarkable recovery, Baronia said of Hearns jog for the arranged touchdown. Before he graduates to pursue a career as a juvenile probation ofcer, Hearn aims to accomplish more in high school athletics this spring by joining the track team. He has regained all of his weight and more can walk and talk again but will have to get a follow-up MRI in a few months. If all is well, doctors will use other than bone to replace the ap removed from his skull during surgery. Hell also continue rehab to meet his goal of running on the track team in the spring. Hes now able to run a lap around the track, do a few sprints and lift some weights. Hearn said his faith helped him survive, and the lessons he learned will remain for the rest of his life. It showed a lot of people dont let anything stop you, Hearn said. Just put God rst. No excuses.Stroke victim scores a miracleBy BETSY BLANEYASSOCIATED PRESS PREP FOOTBALL: Kenbriel HearnAP FILE PHOTOKenbriel Hearn, left, and his mother, Tammy Henderson walk the eld on Senior Night on Nov. 1 at Memphis High School in Texas.

PORT CHARLOTTE AT EAST LAKE RECORDS: Port Charlotte 10-1, 3-0 in District 7A-11; East Lake 12-0, 5-0 in District 7A-9 WHEN: Today, 7:30 p.m. WHERE: Eagles Stadium, Tarpon Springs LAST WEEK: Port Charlotte defeated Melbourne 35-0; East Lake defeated Tarpon Springs 45-0 TALKING POINTS: This is East Lakes third consecutive trip to the regional final and Port Charlottes first. The Eagles run a pro-style offense, led by a wealth of skill players, including WRs Artavis Scott and George Campbell and RB Weston Fordham. The bruising Fordham leads the Eagles with 1,150 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns. But Scott sometimes lines up in the backfield and has 631 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns, along with his 31 catches for 504 yards and five touchdowns. Scott tortured Charlotte in the 2012 preseason, returning two punts for touchdowns. The Eagles have a stout offensive front, led by 6-5, 275-pound Mason Cole, who has committed to Michigan. East Lake has five players committed to Division I schools, including Scott (Clemson), Cole and Campbell (Michigan) and DB Devin Abraham (South Florida). Abraham highlights a tough East Lake defense that has shut out five opponents this season. Abraham has six touchdowns on defensive and special teams returns. Port Charlotte is led by its rushing game which has racked up 3,210 yards and 36 touchdowns this season. RB Keon Suber leads the Pirates on the season with 646 yards and five touchdowns, but Anthony Stephens paced Port Charlotte last week against Melbourne with 84 yards, including a 56-yard score. QB Traige McClary (1,000 passing yards, 11 TDs) has multiple targets, including Paulsin Heitter, Jacques Jean-Louis and Malik Vaccaro-Dixon. The Pirates defensive front has been a strength all season with Ian Bush, Calvin Collins and Greg Patton. Six of the Pirates front seven are seniors. C Jace Norus practiced this week and could be ready to go tonight after missing last week with a shoulder injury. CB Ian Bush and K Andres Hernandez also return. Rob Shore honestly, Price said. We can always improve. Port Charlotte coach Jordan Ingman even found some areas to critique. After all, Melbourne opened the game with a drive that reached the Pirates 28yard line before stalling. We got out of our gap a couple times tonight, Ingman said. We got reached on the jet (sweep) a couple times early. We knew we were going to have trouble adjusting to the speed of the game. After those adjustments were made, Port Charlotte forced Melbourne into four three-and-outs and a turnover as the Pirates raced to a 21-0 halftime lead. Can the Pirates adjust to East Lakes speed? Receiver Artavis Scott, headlines a talented group that includes wideout George Campbell and running back Weston Fordham, as well as dynamic safety Devin Abraham (the son of former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Donnie Abraham). It makes everyone instantly a better coach, East Lake coach Bob Hudson said with a laugh. Its good between George and Tav and Devin and Weston. PC knows theyre not exactly unskilled. Well, no. But are they good enough to put a muzzle on this potent East Lake team? Ingman hinted that some of East Lakes strengths play into Port Charlottes strong points, but he said the Eagles would be a tough team to prepare for. Theres no way to prepare our kids for the speed theyll see Friday night, he said. Their running back (Scott) is going to Clemson. We cant duplicate that in practice. Which goes back to the earlier point that the Port Charlotte defense can get better. I think that Friday, youll probably see the best our defense can play, linebacker Jake Hobbs said on Wednesday. In other words, the Pirates will need to get better to keep playing football. I dont think were going to be able to make mistakes, Hobbs said. They can not score on us.

The Sun Classified Page 22E/N/Cads.yoursun.netFriday, November 29, 2013 ZITSByJerryScott&JimBorgman GARFIELDByJimDavis FRESHLYSQUEEZEDByEdStein DILBERTByScottAdams REXM O R G ANByWoodyW i lsonand G rahamNolan MARYWORTHByKarenMoyandJoeGiellaDEAR DR. ROACH: I have been diagnosed with a severe case of carpal tunnel syndrome, which developed within the past two years. I also have peripheral neuropathy not due to diabetes. I had thyroid cancer, and my thyroid was removed. I am on Synthroid. My physician is recommending that I seek operation for the carpal tunnel. My shoulders, arms and hands have tingling sensation, with numbness in my ngers. I read that a cause of carpal tunnel could be r elated to hypothyroidism. W ould a mere increase of my medication help this issue? My current thyroid stimulating hormone level is 0.12. My endocrinologist r ecommends keeping this number below the normal numbers (0.55-4.78). D.C.L. ANSWER: C arpal tunnel syndrome is caused by the compression of the median nerve as it goes through the wrist. Hypothyroidism is clearly a risk factor in developing CTS, and the mechanism is thought to be swelling of the nerve due to the low thyroid. If the CTS is being caused by the low thyroid, then treatment of the low thyroid usually improves the symptoms of CTS. How ever, your situation is more complex. Because of the history of thyroid cancer, your endocrinologist is quite correctly treating y ou with replacement thyroid but aiming on the high side. Thats why you are taking a fairly large dose, and thats why your T SH is below the normal r ange. TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) is made by y our pituitary gland (in your brain) when your body needs to stimulate y our thyroid gland (which would be in your neck, but yours was removed) to make more thyroid hormone. Because you are taking a little extra thyroid hormone in the form of S ynthroid, your pituitary has sensed the high level and the TSH has come down, so that your thyroid is not stimulated to produce thyroid hormone at all. The concern is that any possible cancerous or pre-cancerous thyroid cells that may have been left after surgery could be stimulated by the TSH. You actually are slightly hyperthyroid, not hypothyroid, to reduce the likelihood of r ecurrent thyroid cancer. So increasing the dose of hormone wouldnt help the problem. In your case, the thyroid probably has nothing to do with the carpal tunnel syndrome. DEAR DR. ROACH: My wife suffers from painful osteoarthritis in her left hip, both ankles and left foot. She is not overweight, maintains a healthy diet and lifestyle, is in very good health and walks about one mile each day. Sh e is in her 18th month of acupuncture treatments, and has tried biofeedback. Do you have any opinion on the occasional use of Harpagophytum, commonly known as devils c law? I sincerely thank you for assuming the role of, may God bless him, Dr Donohue. J.M. ANSWER: De vils claw is considered by the Natural Medic ines Comprehensive Databa se as possibly effective and possibly safe in approved doses up to a year The most common side effect is diarrhea. I think the jury is still out for both acupuncture and devils claw. There have been some studies showing modest effectiveness, and some that have shown them to be no better than placebo. It is worth a try, but it might be helpful to keep a record of symptoms to see if it really is helping.

In many states, its illegal to alter a license plate. Also, something as simple as a license-plate frame that does not t correctly and covers information may be grounds for a ticket. If a frame, decal, etc., obscures the number or the state name, it is a big NO-NO! Also, dont put any cover on it or anything that makes the license plate unreadable. Take this into consideration, and check your state laws the next time you are thinking about getting a special license-plate frame, etc. H eloiseTra vel hintDear Heloise: When w e traveled to a rented beach house, I put ve laundry-detergent pods and ve dryer sheets in an empty plastic container from a powdered drink mix and packed it in my checked luggage.

Joni W., B entonville, Ark.No tearsDear Heloise: I have a 2-year-old female S hihpoo (Shih Tzupoodle mix). She gets pinkish-brown staining on her cute little face just under her eyes. Do you have a safe, pet-friendly hint about how to clean her face and remove most of the staining? Debbie T., via email There is an easy, safe Heloise Hint that I learned from several veterinarians. Mix 1 part baby shampoo (no tears!) with 10 parts warm water. Gently wipe the area using a cotton ball. It may take several times to get rid of the gunk. Then use a damp cloth (water only) or another cotton ball to r inse the area. M any dogs have this problem, especially most white and light-colored dogs, plus it seems to show on them more than on a dark-colored dog. Try to wipe their eyes daily to help prevent a buildup. If the staining is really bad or your dog tears excessively, check with yo ur veterinarian to make sure nothing is going on.

HOROSCOPE DEAR ABBY: My ancee and I are getting married next summer. Last summer, my closest friend a woman was murdered. H er husband was charged with the crime. Both of them were to be a part of the wedding party. The husband, Frank, was to be my best man. Im at a loss about how to deal with this. I cant believe that Frank is guilty, but the trial isnt likely to be nished by the date of the wedding. How ever, he is likely to be out on bail. Fr ank has been one of my closest friends for many y ears, and I dont want to abandon him, but his presence would unnerve many of the guests who know about this. My ancee and I are concerned that having him there would make our w edding the one where the accused murderer showed up. Do I include him? Should he maintain his place as my best man? If not, how do I r escind his invitation? UNSURE IN CANADA DEAR UNSURE: C onsidering the notoriety that now surrounds Frank, he should not be your best man. His presence at the altar would distract from the bride, who is supposed to be the center of attention. This is the No. 1 no-no at w eddings. However, I dont think you should rescind y our friends invitation to attend the wedding because he is innocent until PROVEN guilty. DEAR ABBY: My girlfriend of six years spends w eekends at my house where she has her own r oom with her clothing and personal things. Wanting her to be comfortable here, I have bought her some r obes, PJs, slippers, etc. to use when shes here. One thing she never seems to have is underwear. S he has even borrowed mine on occasion. So I shopped online and put a dozen pair in her dresser drawer. I know her size, style and color preference, so I thought I might be the best boyfriend ever for doing it. O ddly enough, she made no comment. And when I asked, she said, What kind of boyfriend does that? It s SOOO weird. Abby, I was crushed. Did I go too far? Please tell me Im not weird. DISMAYED IN DUNKIRK, N.Y. DEAR DISMAYED: Youre not weird. You are a giver, and it is a trait that should be appreciated. You did not deserve the putdown. Many women would have been touched by your thoughtfulness. I dont know what kind of men your girlfriend has had in her life before you came along, but it seems they didnt spoil her the way youre tr ying to. DEAR ABBY: I recently married, and my husband and I are starting to think about when we should try to have children. I am having a hard time getting ov er the mindset that my parents instilled in me that pregnancy is bad as in when youre a teenager and your parents tell you over and over. (At least mine did.) It has made me terried of getting pregnant. How do I get over this mantra and move forward in my life? We want to start a family, but I always have this nagging feeling like Im not as excited to have kids as my friends are. (We are in our early 30s.) Are these feelings normal? BRIDE IN PHOENIX DEAR BRIDE: At this point, it might be helpful if you discussed this with your parents. After all, it was they who planted this seed of doubt in your head. Im sure once they hear that what they planted has grown into a fear of having the grandchildren they would love to have, they will nd the words to reassure you that a pregnancy after marriage is something to be celebrated. However, if your concerns continue after that, talk about them with yo ur OB/GYN or a licensed counselor. The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. Nahum 1:7 Dont despair if it has been one of those days lled w ith trouble. The Lord is good and He is able to meet y our need. Take time to tell Him all about it.
