On the walls of his ofce, among the photos of family and friends, the Rev. John Cross has a small oil painting of a rural church. Alcova Mountain Baptist is red brick with large trees out front, an outbuilding nearby and Alcova Mountain itself in the distance. Its the place where Pastor Cross rst preached when he was 17 years old. Its the place where his father spent years preaching. I go there a lot of days in my mind and in my heart, Pastor Cross said last week at the South Biscayne Church in North Port, which he has transformed in 23 years from a small church of 100-some-odd to a large church of roughly 3,000. Pastor Cross was born ve decades ago in rural northeastern Georgia. When he was just 11, he said, I became a follower of Christ. I didnt see stars, I didnt hear angels singing, but I did sense a settled feeling of peace, of surrender, and belief that now he is my shepherd. Next came the calling for the ministry. John Cross went to Mercer University for his bachelors degree and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary for a masters and eventually a doctorate. In 1990, he happened to be available when a tiny North Port church came looking for a student-speaker over spring break. As it turned out, the con gregation also was looking for a full-time minister. John Cross took his break here, and then the job. He was 27. North Port had about 12,000 residents at the time. The church had 100 regulars all seniors. But they foresaw growth, Pastor Cross said, and they believed South Biscayne should do whatever it takes to reach particularly the young families that were going to be moving to town. That they did. In 1996, South Biscayne moved from what is now the Boys & Girls Club (on South Biscayne Drive) to the former North Port Mall on U.S. 41. It was a big move to a big building, but theyve lled the place. There are now almost 3,000 members. South Biscayne Baptist has an exceptional reach. They donate Christmas presents and distribute food. Their backto-school bash last year attracted 1,500 for school supplies, clothing, free haircuts, physicals and hamburgers. Their Easter and Christmas pageants are said to be spectaculars. And in coming years, a large, faith-based assisted living facility will be built next door. South Biscayne is committed to preaching and teaching the Bible, Pastor Cross said. However, methods change all the time. We dont want to be an eighttrack church in an MP3 world. Along those lines, Pastor Cross said, Our church has been willing to think outside the box. In fact, theyve even been willing to throw away the box so that we dont limit how we can communicate this message. That means Sunday worship for youngsters particularly is high-highhigh energy, he said. We believe if we create a church where kids are pumped up and red up, the par ents arent trying to get the kids to come, the kids are trying to get the parents to come. In other ways, too, kids have become more central to his life. Four years ago, Pastor Cross, hitherto single, married a widow with ve children. He will be a grandfather soon. He feels particularly blessed about that. Theyre awesome, he said. Of course, my wife is beautiful and phenomenal. Gods been good. Stephen Baumann is a member of the Suns editorial board.

Toys R Us announced it is closing stores in Port Charlotte at 1381 Tamiami Trail, as well as Babies R Us in Sarasota leaving the store on Cleveland Avenue in Fort Myers the closest in the toy giant chain for area shoppers. About 35 employees will lose their jobs at the Murdock store, which opened more than a decade ago near the Port Charlotte Town Center mall. Despite long lines wrapping around the Murdock store on Thanksgiving evening and thousands of customers coming from North Port, Arcadia, Englewood, Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte, the store was picked to close, company ofcials say. Workers were notied recently about their employment ending at the end of January, but declined to comment. According to Toys R Us spokeswoman Alyssa Peera, the store will be liquidated just after Christmas. The store will still take gift cards and credit cards through the liquidation process, a store employee said Monday. Gift cards can also be used online with items shipped to the store. Returns will not be taken after the liquidation begins.Toys R Us to close doorsBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH NORTH PORT COMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR 35 to lose jobs at Murdock store after ChristmasTOYS | 10 Putting your arms around Christmas SUN PHOTO BY DONNELL BATESCharlotte County Community Services hosted the rst Adaptive Santas Candy Land event on Saturday, making the holiday season bright for kids with disabilities and their families at the Port Charlotte Beach Complex. Here, as soon as Santa Claus arrived, Maggie Murrill got the rst hug. More photos on page 11 .A mother was arrested Saturday and charged in connection with her 11-month-old sons drowning in June. Sharon Marie Swat, 24, called 911 on the evening of June 6 to report she had found her baby face down and unresponsive in the bathtub at their home on Kidron Avenue in Englewood. Authorities say it was her fault. A Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce deputy was the rst to respond. He immediately began CPR and noted a lot of liquid came out of the babys nose, but he couldnt be resuscitated. The infant was transported to Englewood Community Hospital and pronounced dead. An autopsy from the Medical Examiners ofce showed the cause of death was, in fact, drowning. After a lengthy CCSO investigation, Swat was arrested on a charge of child neglect causing great bodily harm a second-degree felony. On Monday, State Attorneys Ofce spokeswoman Samantha Syoen said the SAO hadnt received enough information about the case to comment on the possibility of additional or enhanced charges. Swat had her rst appearance Sunday at the Charlotte County Justice Center. The Public Defenders Ofce has been assigned the case, but a Mother charged in sons drowningBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERDROWNING | 10PORT CHARLOTTE Dennis Peck got his rst boating license in New York when he was 9 and has been sailing since age 14. The longtime sailor has raced in Kingston, Ontario; Annapolis, Md.; Chicago; and St. Petersburg, Fla. just to name a few. Peck, who moved to Charlotte County in 1970, decided he wanted to share his passion and talents with others. He founded the Charlotte Harbor Community Sailing Center a little more than a decade ago. The center has been operating from Port Charlotte Beach Park for almost two months. And it was all smooth sailing until someone recently stole a $3,500 motor from his instructional dinghy. I do what I can with what I know to help society, said Peck, 64. But it gets difcult when things like this happen. The educational center is a notfor-prot. Most funds come from donations, and the instructional staff consists of volunteers. The theft of the pricey 15hp Mercury 4-stroke outboard motor hurts. You just have to deal with it, said Peck.Sailing center sputtering after motor theftBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERTHEFT | 11 SteveBAUMANNCOLUMNISTLIFE STORIES SWAT Charlotte SunAND WEEKLY HERALDCALL US AT 941-206-1000THE SUN: Obituaries 5 | Police Beat 7 | Viewpoint 8 | Opinion 9 | THE WIRE: Nation 2,8 | State 3 | Business 5-6 | World 7 | Health 8 | Weather 8 | SPORTS: Lotto 2 | CLASSIFIED: Comics 9-12 | Dear Abby 12 | TV Listings 13 VOL. 121 NO. 351 AN EDITION OF THE SUN AMERICAS BEST COMMUNITY DAILYTUESDAY DECEMBER 17, 2013www.sunnewspapers.net $1.00 Mostly sunny and delightful74 48 High Low Look inside for valuable couponsThis years savings to date ...S UN COUPON VALUE METER CHARLIE SAYS ...I have my Mega Millions tickets!INDEX | 705252000258 Daily Edition $1.00 $83,847Stores have free rein to recoup shoplifting lossesTHE WIRE PAGE 8 MEGA MILLIONS ANTIBACTERIAL SOAPSThe U.S. government says it has found no evidence that common anti-bacterial soaps prevent the spread of germs.

The plane was taken to an air strip along Shell Creek to be refurbished. According to one of the deputies in the escort, both the pilot and co-pilot who originally ew the plane on D-Day, June 6, 1944, are still alive and are sched uled to participate in the remembrance events in 2014 in England. The transport from the Punta Gorda Airport to the Shell Creek Airport on Washington Loop Road took about two hours.Escort to history Kim Lovejoy was up in the air Friday, literally and guratively. Perched on a stepladder, paintbrush in hand, she was putting the nishing touches on the door of the new library at the Military Heritage Museum at Fishermen's Village in Punta Gorda. She was also on cloud nine, contemplating the grand opening Thursday of the 2,400-squarefoot Military Heritage Museum Conference Center and Library, which will double the size of the original museum below it on the ground floor. For Lovejoy, the museum's executive director, it's been an ordeal, but a satisfying one since April, getting the facility's new second-oor space ready for the opening. Walls moved, chair rails and ceiling molding was installed, electrical was improved, new lighting, oors stripped and waxed, doors installed, and new paint went everywhere during the conversion of the former hair salon and spa. But, she said, stepping wearily down from her paint ladder, "It's going to be great." There will be a military research library, a conference center for both museum and public use, books, movies, magazines, video, military artifacts, and "beautiful artwork" decorating the facility. "It will be a place to come and relax while shopping at Fishermen's Village," she said, "a place to get away from it all for a while." The new facility will also enable the consider able expansion of display space at the original museum, as ofces and storage are moved upstairs. The military history library will be a prominent feature, Lovejoy said, open by appointment and geared particularly for use by area students and teachers. The rest of the new facility will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The grand opening, to which the public is invited, will begin at 5 p.m. Thursday with ribbon-cutting ceremonies involving both the Charlotte County and Punta Gorda chambers of commerce. The ceremonies will include the unveiling of two plaques. One will be for Bob Dickinson, a retired Army colonel who was added to the museum's Wall of Warriors this year. Many other Wall of Warriors inductees will also attend. The other plaque will pay tribute to the late Walli and Hugo Spatz in tribute to their support of the museum over the years. Refreshments will be provided by Jacks on Marion. Bill Minerich, Jacks' owner, is president of the museum.Museum sets grand openingBy BILL JONESSUN CORRESPONDENT SUN PHOTO BY BILL JONESKim Lovejoy, executive director of the Military Heritage Museum in Punta Gorda, wields a paintbrush as she puts the nishing touches on the facilitys expansion, getting ready for a grand opening Thursday.

For $115 a year, a vacant lot owner in Punta Gorda can have his property mowed up to 13 times a year with three to four tree trims thrown into the deal. Considering thats less than $10 a month, its not unreasonable to assume most folks would be happy to pony up the money for the service. Not so, say city ofcials. Each year, the city has to prepare and send out more than 100 delinquency bills pressing lot owners for payment, which is both tedious and an inefcient use of staff time, ofcials said. As a result, the City Council, upon request from staff, recently approved a measure that shifts collections away from individually mailed invoices to a property owners tax bill. Doing so is not only more efcient, it also increases the collection rate. It makes more sense for the county to handle it than for us to manually draw up thousands of bills, said assistant city nance director Sharon Knippenberg. They already have that mechanism in place. The citys lot mowing program is mandatory, but owners are permitted to opt out if they choose to mow their own lawns. Currently, there are 2,087 property owners in the program who own a total of 2,800 lots, said city zoning ofcial Terry Tubbs. About 184 of those accounts are delinquent, totaling about $21,000, Knippenberg said. Anything that we miss out on is too much, she said. Plus its not an efcient use of our time. For months, city ofcials have grappled with how best to handle the lot-mowing issue, as it noticeably impacts the citys appearance. Unlike previous years marked by drought, this years heavy rains contributed to an overabundance of vegetation. In robust economic times, the city took over the responsibility of mowing the area between the sidewalk and the street as part of its mandatory lot-mowing program for vacant lots. About 15 years ago, Punta Gorda ofcials attempted to cut back on the citys complimentary mowing service, resulting in resident resistance and a lot of overgrown lawns. But in September, the City Council passed a measure that requires homeowners to maintain their private property all the way to the street. Residential property owners who do not mow their entire lawn, allowing overgrowth and forcing the city to cut the grass will face a city code violation which for now is aimed at only residential properties and possible $75 ne. City ofcials said notices will be mailed to all impacted lot owners, notifying them of the change in billing in the coming weeks. Ofcials hope to have the plan in place by March 1.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comCity changes billing for mowingBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITER 50461622 JAMES W. MALLONEE, P.A. LAW OFFICE JAMES W.

Our Town Page 8 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, December 17, 2013 Boys & Girls Club needs your supportEditor: The Boys & Girls Club of Charlotte County has been providing a safe and positive environment for school-age children since 1997. The club offers beforeand afterschool programs at seven locations throughout Charlotte County; providing help to over 525 school-age children each year. Every child receives homework help, tutoring, tness, arts, leadership and character development from caring adult staff. Kids also receive health and life skills to help them reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. These services are free to most of the families we serve. I stress the word free because we rely solely on grants and donated funds. The club is very well-managed and sanctioned by the United Way of Charlotte County, but our funding is very tight. Please consider donating your time, talent, and/or money to this great community asset. Without the club, the alternative for many of these kids is to go home to an empty house or to the streets. Please help!Thomas J. Thornberry Port CharlotteAquarium idea just a fantasyEditor: I read an article in March in the Sun regarding the possibility of Mote Marine building an aquarium in Punta Gorda. The Visitors & Convention Bureau and the county Economic Development Ofce estimated the aquarium would bring in 400,000 visitors annually (1,100 visitors each day, 365 days a year.) The world famous Scripps Aquariums annual attendance in San Diego is 400,000. Miamis Seaquariums annual attendance is 500,000 it also has killer whale and dolphin shows. I hoped this local fantasy would drain away until I read the Suns lead article Dec. 6 re porting the $55,000 aquarium study. Completed by professionals in this eld, the study found in order to receive 134,000 to 341,000 visitors, up to $67,000,000 would need to be raised. The Charlotte Harbor Aquarium Committee stated the 96-page study showed only one scenario and the $55,000 study by experts was not accurate. The local committee experts believe they can simply charge the same or more than big city aquariums for a smaller site. This is the biggest sh story ever heard in Punta Gorda. The Sun has a history of speaking out on these issues. This fantasy has to stop before more time, money, and space in the newspaper is wasted. There are other local issues that need to be addressed such as county taxes, the air port authority, and Allegiant Air not following through on their agreement with Punta Gorda residents.Roger Klotz Punta GordaSun editor was big helpEditor: I would like to thank Lorraine Schneeberger, North Port Sun editor, for running the brief to promote the AMVETS Post 312 golf tour nament on Nov. 30 on four different occasions, which was very helpful to me. I also would like to thank her for the effort she made to send a photo team to Bobcat Trail Golf Course the day of the tournament. The pictures taken were run in the Dec. 6 edition. Lorraine did a great job to help our post have our second successful tournament.Lee Herlan North PortFree instruction on parliamentary rulesEditor: I would like to commend the Charlotte County Parliamentarians Unit (CCPU), a local chapter of the National Association of Parliamentarians. It is known as the leading chapter in the country for providing instruction in parliamentary procedure (to more than 1,100 people since 1982). These procedures are used by over 90 percent of organizations, including nonprots, condominium and homeowner associations and most others that hold meetings. Every year CCPU holds a six-week basic course. The course is designed for ofcers and members who want to know the rules of order and how they apply to their organization. This year the introductory classes will be on Wednesdays, beginning Jan. 15, at the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Hall, 23300 Harper Ave., Charlotte Harbor. The trained volunteer instructors will be using the most recent issue of Roberts Rules of Order, Newly Revised, 11th edition (released Sept. 2011). For more information, contact Karen Price at 941-697-8000 or Gene Coy at 941-639-6617. CCPU also teaches advanced classes, and can structure custom seminars for any group. The units regular meetings are open to the public at the FOP Hall. They are held on the second Thursday of the odd-numbered months, year round, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. with a class on Parliamentary Procedure following the business meeting.John Dauster Punta GordaObama to blame for BenghaziEditor: The elephant in the room. Everyone is asking, Who gave the order to stand down during the attack at Benghazi? It should be obvious to the most casual observer. Since there is only one person in the entire world who could have given the order to send American military forces into a foreign country, the only one who could have said, go ahead, was the president of the United States. So, when he left the Situation Room to work on his campaign contribution speech, as it was told by Hillary Clinton, telling the others to handle it. Their only option was to tell the military to stand down. No one in that room had the authority to say anything else. Whoever said it, simply had no other choice. So in effect Obama was the one who said stand down by his lack of saying, do it. In his defense, no one had been killed yet, at that time, making his money-grubbing speech more important. However they were most certainly being attacked and were in grave danger. The rest of the horrors of that night were caused by his lack of guts to give the order. All the phony excuses for not sending a rescue attempt are bogus, and for the sole purpose of protecting their boss. The assets were there and the military was ready, willing and able to at least try, and likely succeed. Another sad day for America.Owen Williams Port CharlotteDog accusations just dont yEditor: I am furious at Wont Return To Dog Parks in your Tuesday edition. This man is hiding behind his two schnauzers to launch his inane attack on snowbirds who are so important to this area. It is ridiculous to believe that his pets are contracting northern diseases while playing in the local dog parks. Snowbirds come from places that have strict leash and pooper-scooper laws. He has the nerve to mention New York City which enforces these laws in the strictest manner. You will not nd dogs running around loose as you do down here. Up north a person walking a dog will even get a summons for not carrying something to pick up after their dog. The laws up north have made dog owners very sensitive about doing the right thing and in general they have brought this sense of good manners south with them. This man has no basis for his attack on snowbirds. If he doesnt like the condition of the local dog parks, let him do something constructive to improve them. Bad-mouthing snowbirds with stupid accusations is like biting the hand that feeds you. They are extremely important to your local economy, have a great love and respect for this area, and should be welcomed with open arms.Martin Mandel EnglewoodSprings is our lost golden eggEditor: I would like to demonstrate a simple mathematical equation in regards to using Warm Mineral Springs. According to the records there were 119.000 people paying admission annually. Each person spent a minimum of $75 in admission fees, etc. It is a very affordable vacation to spend in nine days (Sat., Sun., M-F, Sat., Sun.) only $675 with the huge health benets plus outstanding service and shopping in North Port. Twice as cheap as what would be spent in the Dominican Republic. Now we have: 119,000 vacation days x $75 = $8,925,000 would be spent in the area of North Port and Sarasota County. Truly, the Springs has been a chicken with the golden eggs for North Port. On top of it we would have growing real estate values and Springs Trademark. Please, correct me if I am wrong. And if some commissioners do not under stand economical benets of that they should go back to school. Springs needs a small investment to become a world-famous resort. If today, for example, the city would have to invest $100,000 a year the return would be 90 times. And nally, and unfortunately we just found that no budget at all was allocated to support the Springs life in 2014. This is very upsetting news for all taxpayers and especially for residents of the Warm Mineral Springs area.Henry Droznin North PortLetters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

The Oakdale Christmas House has been called the top holiday light display in the nation. The St. Petersburg Times writes: A mega display. Look. Be amazed. Defies belief and description. It has 500,000 lights and a rotating star and comes on the day after Thanksgiving and goes through Jan. 3 from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. We remember Robin Stublens display in his neighborhood east of Punta Gorda that drew cars each night until the project became too time-consuming. And, a cou ple of years back, there was a home in Deep Creek that brought a couple of hundred people each night who could walk through the display as fake snow fell peacefully on their heads. A decade or two ago, civic leaders in Myrtle Beach, S.C., which experienced a huge reduction in tourist traffic in the winter, were looking for ideas to bring people to their shops and restaurants when it was too chilly for the beach. We dont have all the numbers and specifics, but a large light display along city streets did result in drawing people from near and far and many of them decided to spend the night. So, that got us thinking. What if we had a super-sized holiday light display along Englewood Beach? Or, maybe downtown Punta Gorda or North Port? We like the beach idea because there is a lot of parking and it would cement visitors relationship with the idea of coming to the beach. There are several potential sponsors for the project. First, we could ask all the local chambers of commerce to get involved. Of course, we could always look for penny tax dollars from the area for seed money to buy the displays. Crews from Charlotte and Sarasota counties could work together to put up the display. Perhaps even some major business partners could get involved. We could call it the Mosaic Christmas or the Bud Lights (get it?). Crazy idea? We think not. Holiday light displays are popular with everyone even those who dont believe in the reason for the season. We wouldnt even have to do much advertising since word of mouth is so powerful when it comes to free light displays just ask the owners of a home on Mission Valley Boulevard in Nokomis. We understand that the snowbirds are mostly already here at that time of year but the period around Christmas when many, we suspect, go back north to be with families and before the last rush of snowbirds head south could use a little boost in visitors. We think it would be a great idea for someone to champion this idea. Meanwhile, if you want to see the Oakdale house in St. Pete, go to I-275, take Exit 22, which is 175-E. Turn right onto 4th Street, heading south. Go about one mile, crossing over 22nd Avenue S. The next street on the left is Oakdale. Turn there, go two blocks and look. | LETTER SUBMISSION POLICY | LETTERS TO | THE EDITOR T (Pae"''" IZ A 311,]cw s Jou r i_ JIII /

The Sun /Tuesday, December 17, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINT Shouldnt Florida, with the nations second highest rate of uninsured residents 3.8 million and one of the highest poverty rates in the country, be leading the pack on the expansion of Medicaid? Expanding Medicaid, a joint federal-state program for millions of Floridas hard-working residents should be a piece of cake. Other red states have done it: Arizona, Iowa, Michigan, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota and most recently, Ohio. Thus far, 25 states and the District of Columbia have decided to expand Medicaid eligibility. The health care law was intended to give nancial assistance to those with the lowest incomes by extending Medicaid eligibility to people who earn just over the Federal Poverty Level and offering tax credits to other lowto middle-income people to subsidize the purchase of private health insurance. But the Supreme Courts ruling that states can opt out of Medicaid expansion created a coverage gap in states like Florida that refuse to expand Medicaid leaving 1.2 million Floridians without health care coverage. Leaders across the country Democrats and Republicans are coming to the conclusion that Medicaid expansion makes sense because it can serve as an economic booster shot. Just like Florida, Ohio initially refused to expand Medicaid, but changed course and passed Medicaid expansion out of compassion and economic practicality. Arkansas set up an alternative proposal to expand Medicaid; Arizona will expand Medicaid to nearly 300,000 poor residents next year; and Pennsylvanias Governor Tom Corbett recently endorsed a Medicaid expansion plan in deance of the State House. Whats the holdup in Florida? Florida has the ability to gain $51 billion over 10 years. By refusing the expansion, Florida will lose that money money that you paid in federal income taxes to Ohio, Arkansas, Arizona, Pennsylvania and all other states extending Medicaid eligibility. Florida will also lose out on 122,000 new, good-paying jobs. With full federal funding from 2014 to 2016 and at least 90 percent thereafter, Florida has the opportunity to help the working poor and its economy and to also reduce the burden on hospitals for uncompensated care. The Florida League of Women Voters encour ages you to contact your state representative and Governor Rick Scott and urge them to follow 25 other states and enact common-sense health policies that provide all of its residents with quality health care that will reduce the burden of uncompensated care, reduce the number of uninsured and inject signicant resources into the economy. So what are we waiting for Florida? Common sense and compassion can prevail over partisanship its simply a matter of choice. Teresa Jenkins is the Affordable Care Act Action Chair for the Florida League of Women Voters. Readers may reach her at 941916-9021 or tmjlwvf@ gmail.com. Health insurance enrollment runs through March 31 at the Virginia B. Andes Volunteer Community Clinic, 21297 Olean Blvd., Port Charlotte, Fla. Call 941-766-9570 to make an appointment. Enrollment by Dec. 23 will result in coverage beginning Jan. 1.Florida drags its feet on Medicaid expansion Teresa Jenkins All this year, House Speaker John Boehner has been taking criticism from all quarters. He is a squish selling out to the Obama administration and the Democrats, many conservatives charged when he engineered bipartisan (mostly Democratic) approval of higher tax rates on high earners rather than go over the scal cliff. He is a radical hostage-taking Confederatesympathizing terrorist, cried Democrats when he led House Republicans to pass a bill refunding the government but defunding Obamacare. He is irresponsible and obdurate, cried high-minded supporters of a grand bargain including entitlement reform, because he resolutely refused to negotiate with President Obama. He is a squish selling out you know the rest yelled some conservatives last week when he rallied votes, successfully, for the bipartisan budget agreement hammered out by House and Senate Budget Chairmen Paul Ryan and Patty Murray. Undoubtedly, some of these criticisms were sin cere. Rational arguments could be and sometimes were made in their support. On occasion, Boehner seemed to be stumbling from one stance to something like its opposite. But I would argue that the cumulative result, in terms of budget, spending and tax policy, is far more favorable for Republicans and conservatives than they had any right to anticipate given the correlation of political forces after the November 2012 election. Obama had just become only the 17th man to be re-elected president in 220 years. (Im counting Grover Cleveland, who was beaten for reelection in 1888 and came back to win a rematch four years later.) Democrats had, against considerable odds and with the incalculably valuable aid of some hapless Republican nominees, not only held on to their majority in the Senate, but had increased it from 53-47 to 55-45. Boehners House Republicans had lost only eight seats. But Republican candidates had actually won fewer popular votes than Democrats. (Two-thirds of that margin came from eight California districts where, thanks to that states new law, there were no Republican nominees.) In a House where there had been little bipartisanship in recent years, that meant that Boehner had to rally 218 of the 234 Republican members in order to pass legislation if Democrats were opposed. A defection by 17 Republicans would cut Boehners leverage down toward zero. And many of these Republicans were of a mind to oppose anything they thought would accommodate the Obama Democrats. Boehner could not count on favorable press coverage or even much coverage at all, except when things went sour. His own gifts do not include the smooth articulateness that goes over well on television. Given all that, and taking into account legislation passed, Boehner has had impressive policy success on budget, spending and tax issues. He has achieved that, on occasion, by tactical surrender. Former Speaker Dennis Hastert wouldnt allow a bill on the oor that wasnt supported by a majority of Republican members. Boehner broke the so-called Hastert rule in early January in the scal cliff crisis when he allowed a mostly Democratic majority to effectively raise tax rates on high earners. The alternative was raising taxes on everyone. Whats amazing here is that the high-bracket increases were not enacted until the fth year of Obamas presidency. Two months later, Boehner surprised Obama by accepting the sequester cuts. Democrats thought he would negotiate to increase defense spending. But few House Republicans cared enough about defense to agree to Democrats demands for tax increases. Boehner read this mood accurately and extracted from it a major policy success. The sequester has held discretionary spending far below levels that the Senate and White House Democrats want. In October, Boehner reluctantly agreed to a bill funding the government but defunding Obamacare. Enough Republicans insisted they wouldnt vote for the former without the latter. But the speaker was quick to climb down when polls showed Republicans slumping with voters and to yield the spotlight to the ragged Obamacare rollout. In the process, he won the trust of most Republican members. That trust was essential to passage, Thursday, of the budget bill, which tweaks the sequester, assuaging appropriators who want more leeway and hawks who want more defense spending. It institutes some small but probably permanent entitlement cuts and likely rules out another politically damaging government shutdown. On policy, its hard to see how Boehner could have accomplished more this year. And on politics, he has positioned his often obstreperous members well for 2014.

When Swat called 911, she said she had gone to the kitchen to put her babys bottle in the sink. During the CCSOs investigation, authorities noted in their report it is not possible for Swat to have left her son for two minutes, as the kitchen sink is only 12 feet from the bathroom. Swat also told investigators the bathtub had over flowed. During a test of the same tub, authorities noted it took over a half an hour to fill the tub and it still would not have overflowed. The report shows, (Swat) was away from (the victim) for approximately 34 minutes. Investigators believe Swat intentionally walked away from her 11-month-old son, who was too young to swim. Due to Sharons neglectful act, (the victim) died. Immediately following the death, a CCSO crime scene technician noted there were ve wet towels and a large comforter on the bathroom oor, and the bathtub was empty and had no toys in it. The report shows Swat left her other child a 4-year-old whose gender authorities didnt release in the tub, as well. Swats arraignment is scheduled for Feb. 3.

The Sun /Tuesday, December 17, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 11 FROM PAGE ONE PUNTA GORDA Christmas songs played softly as small groups of people gradually entered the Edison State College auditorium, really more of an intimate theater. Dressed as if attending a theater performance or concert, their stoic faces and somber moods told a different story. Throughout the audience, some rested their foreheads on their hands while others silently wiped away tears. They came together on Saturday for the 12th annual Remembrance Service, hosted by KaysPonger & Uselton Funeral Homes and Cremation Services. Anyone who has lost a loved one whether he was served by the funeral home or elsewhere was invited to attend. This year, the service was also open to those who lost their beloved pets. The purpose was to let them know theyre not alone. Peggy and Emery of Homegrown Sounds played a variety of songs wishing the audience a merry Christmas. Though many in the audience no doubt felt that wasnt going to happen this year, Peggys gentle guitar style and soothing voice seemed to encourage them to try despite their circumstances. Emerys endless array of gentle percussion sounds and harmonica interludes provided an interesting distraction while making the songs especially memorable. Funeral director Debra Fewell recounted that after her mother died 17 years ago, Fewell wanted to skip the holiday her mother so dearly loved. Whether your loss occurred yesterday or 50 years ago, it still hurts, but for their sake we must carry on, said Fewell. This year, she asked the Peace River Writers to submit poems about their lost loved ones. Three were chosen to read their submissions Sharon Shatney, Linda Hughes and Ophelia Rosen. Dee Roberts, a celebrant for the funeral home, provided some needed laughter during her remarks. She talked about the commercials you see of the perfect family celebrating a perfect holiday dinner where everyone helps with the preparations and there are no empty chairs at the table. But real life isnt like that. After losing her husband and her beloved dog years ago within a two-week period, people told her to get over the grieving and move on, she said. Grief isnt like that; grief is like an illness with no recovery in sight, said Roberts. When will it not hurt as bad? When you are ready. Singer Marcella Brown closed the service with a rendition of Ave Maria that resonated from the oorboards to the rafters. As the audience members left the auditorium, they were given a folded sheet of paper and told to carefully protect its contents. Outside on the grass, with the sun beaming hopefully on the scene, everyone opened their papers to release Florida Painted Lady butteries. The butteries emerged slowly, rested to get their bearings, and one by one, ew gingerly to nearby shrubs or were taken by the gentle breeze up into the sky. Like the people around them, they were embarking on a new life forever changed, but full of promise and possibilities.Email: barbara.mellinger@gmail.comOut of the darkness, celebrating lifeBy BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGERSUN CORRESPONDENT Some of the butteries ew to nearby bushes, while others were carried away by the gentle early winter breeze.

According to the report, someone stole the motor between Dec. 11 and Dec. 14. The thief cut through a chain to steal the motor. The center keeps about two dozen boats outside at Port Charlotte Beach Park. Ive never had any problems before this, said Peck. (The suspects) came in with bolt cutters and knew what they were doing. The crime wont deter his ideas for the site. Peck hopes to eventually construct a small building to have a classroom and an ofce. He also wishes to operate daily in the future.

Check Out The Classifieds In The The newly installed Parks that Teach program will hold its rst guided nature walk along Punta Gordas pathways led by master gardener guides Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. The walk is free. During the walks, the University of Florida master gardeners will discuss the importance of Floridas native habitats and the wildlife associated with them. Attendees will see habitat that supports egrets, anhingas, herons, crabs, turtles, osprey, eagles, alligators and so much more. I am so excited to be one of the master gardeners who will be sharing landscape information and the value of these mangroves to our Charlotte Harbor estuary, guide Donna Worthley said. In Florida there are three types of mangrove trees red, white and black comprising this vital and precious community. Mangroves provide protection and shelter for numerous species of wildlife, nursery grounds for many creatures and have mechanisms which allow them to survive in low oxygen and saline environments. The guides also will talk about several invasive plants, their history and control efforts. In addition, many Florida friendly plants growing along the pathway will be pointed out and discussed. The Charlotte County Extension Services yards and neighborhoods representative, Tom Becker, said Its a great way for people to learn which plants do best in particular areas and to actually see them in the landscape. The Parks that Teach corridor is located on a portion of Punta Gordas pathways. This corridor begins at Fishermens Village and continues on, crossing Marion and Olympia avenues and Shreve Street, all the way to southbound U.S. 41 also known as Cross Street. Once complete, Punta Gordas pathways will extend 18 miles. The nature walks are free and do not require a reservation. Regularly scheduled walks will be offered twice monthly on the rst Saturday at 8 a.m. and on the third Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. Groups are welcome to schedule with the master gardeners outside of these scheduled hours by calling the contact number below. All groups will meet at the beginning of the Parks that Teach trail, which is at the east end of the Fishermens Village parking lot near the tennis courts. Those interested in attending are encouraged to either call the contact number below with any questions or simply arrive on Wednesday. The walks last about 90 minutes, with time allotted after the walk for questions. Brochures and schedules for the PTT Program will be on display at a kiosk that will be installed at the crossing of Shreve Street and Virginia Avenue. The Parks that Teach Program is a collaborative public-private partnership funded by a grant from the Charlotte Community Foundation. This partnership includes the city of Punta Gorda, the University of Florida Charlotte County Extension Service master gardeners and the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center.

The ruling, lled with blistering criticism of the Obama administrations arguments, is the rst of its kind on the controversial program. Even if NSAs metadata collection of records should pass constitutional muster, the judge said, there is little evidence it has ever prevented a terrorist attack. The collection program was disclosed by former NSA systems analyst Edward Snowden, provoking a heated national and international debate. U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon granted a preliminary injunction against the collecting of the phone records of two men who had challenged the program and said any such records for the men should be destroyed. But he put enforcement of that decision on hold pending a near-certain government appeal, which may well end up at the Supreme Court. The injunction applies only to the two individual plaintiffs, but the ruling is likely to open the door to much broader challenges to the records collection and storage.

MEGA | 4 WASHINGTON After more than 40 years of study, the federal government said Monday it has no evidence that the anti-bacterial chemicals used in countless common soaps and washes help prevent the spread of germs, and it is reviewing research suggesting they may pose health risks. Regulators at the Food and Drug Administration said they are revisiting the safety of chemicals such as triclosan in light of recent studies that suggest the substances can interfere with hormone levels and spur the growth of drug-resistant bacteria. The governments preliminary ruling lends new support to outside researchers who have long argued that the chemicals are, at best, ineffective and at worst, a threat to public health. The FDA is nally making a judgment call here and asking industry to show us that these products are better than soap and water, and the data dont substantiate that, said Stuart Levy of Tufts University School of Medicine. Under a proposed rule released Monday, the agency will require manufacturers to prove that anti-bacterial soaps and body washes are safe and more effective than plain soap and water.

The crisis prompted a record appeal by the United Nations on Monday for $6.5 billion to help displaced Syrians and their host countries, with hundreds of thousands more refugees expected as the civil war rages. With less than a month to go before internationally brokered peace talks by Syrias warring sides are to begin, the U.N. chief demanded a cease-re for the discussions to have any chance in succeeding. We must have cessation of hostilities before we begin political dialogue on Syria in Geneva, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon told reporters in New York. But if anything, the violence in Syria, which activists say has already claimed more than 120,000 lives, appears to be spiraling. Opposition groups said at least 76 people were killed in a series of airstrikes targeting the northern city of Aleppo on Sunday. They said government aircraft took to the skies again Monday, hitting opposition-held areas in the countrys north and south.

Karl Pierson, 18, committed suicide after critically wounding a student at Arapahoe High School on Friday. Pierson had entered the school looking for the librarian and debating coach with whom he had a dispute, ofcials said. According to a statement by the coroners ofce, Piersons death was from a severe head injury due to a shotgun wound to the head. The manner of death is classied as suicide.

Jerrod Metsker, 24, was the last person seen with the girl at the trailer park where both lived, a sheriffs investigator said. He was arrested Sunday, about 12 hours after deputies found Reann Murphys body. A judge Monday ordered that he be held in jail on a $1 million bond. Investigators with the Wayne County Sheriffs ofce described Metsker as a family friend and neighbor. Relatives said Reann and her mother had just moved into the trailer park a few months ago around the beginning of the school year.

BEYONCEUS sends 2 Gitmo prisoners to Saudi ArabiaMIAMI (AP) Two Guantanamo Bay prisoners have been transferred to Saudi Arabia as part of a renewed effort to close the offshore U.S. prison. U.S. ofcials say the two Saudis have been transferred to the custody of their own government after a security review. The men are 35-year-old Saad Muhammad Husayn Qahtani and 48-yearold Hamood Abdulla Hamood. Neither man had been charged with a crime. U.S. records show both were suspected members of al-Qaida and were considered to be at high risk of rejoining the terror group if released. Dozens of prisoners have been transferred to Saudi Arabia and later released after going through a rehabilitation program. The Pentagon said Monday the transfer brings the Guantanamo population to 160 prisoners. Tom Laughlin, star of Billy Jack movies, dies at 82LOS ANGELES (LA Times) Tom Laughlin, a lmmaker who drew a huge following for his movies about the ill-tempered, karate-chopping pacist Billy Jack, died Thursday at a Thousand Oaks, Calif., hospital. He was 82. He had been in failing health for several years, his daughter Teresa Laughlin said. Laughlin starred in and co-produced the four lms of the 1960s and 70s showcasing Billy Jack, a troubled Vietnam veteran who quietly promotes a message of peace when hes not throwing bad guys through plate-glass windows. Laughlin founded a Montessori school in Santa Monica after he deemed the public schools unworthy of educating his children. When he decided the political system was hopelessly corrupt, he mounted three quixotic presidential campaigns. After becoming disillusioned with Catholicism, he immersed himself in Jungian psychology. LAUGHLIN WASHINGTON (AP) Republican leaders and several hard-right groups are displaying the classic signs of a political divorce, including bitter name-calling and reprisals against one another. The recent eagerness of House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to lash out at groups that have given them ts has unshackled others in the Republican ranks to publicly question the motivation of organizations like the Senate Conservatives Fund, Heritage Action, Madison Project and Club for Growth. Such organizations disparage Republicans they accuse of following the path of least resistance in Washington and vow to replace them in primaries with conservative purists. I think theres a growing recognition around here that many of the outside groups do what they do solely to raise money, and there are some participants inside Congress who do the same, said Sen. Bob Corker. He said that some of the newer senators have caught on to the disinformation, getting people to call ofces, send in small donations to a website. I think people are getting tired of that. I tired of it before I got here, said the Tennessee Republican. Increasingly in public, Boehner and McConnell are challenging the outside groups credibility and complaining that they are the ones tarnishing conservatism. But it goes both ways. In the recent dust-up over the budget deal, the outside groups suspect that Boehner has a hidden motive. They suggest hes anxious to put economic ghts in the rear-view mirror so he can tackle contentious immigration legislation early next year, before the rst round of March primaries in Texas and Illinois. The groups suspicions were heightened by the recent high-profile budget success of Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., who favors a way out of the shadows for the estimated 11 million immigrants living in the U.S. in violation of the law, and in Boehners hire of a Senate staffer who worked on bipartisan immigration legislation for Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. Its very easy to see that they want to clear a lane to pass amnesty, said Daniel Horowitz, policy director for the Madison Project, who described the overall differences with Republican leaders as irreconcilable. Michael Steel, spokesman for Boehner, scoffed at the link between the budget deal and immigration. The agreement has nothing to do with the need to fix our broken immigration system, Steel said in a statement Monday. It wasnt always this acrimonious. Tea partyers and conservative activists helped the GOP claim the House majority in 2010 and seize state legislatures that redrew congressional boundar ies to the GOPs advantage. Those new lines enabled Republicans to withstand strong Democratic turnout in the 2012 presidential year and hold their House edge, a margin the GOP is expected to maintain or even increase in next years midterm elections. The outcome was far different in Senate races. Outside conser vative groups backed less-viable candidates who flamed out in general elections in Colorado, Nevada and Delaware in 2010 and in Indiana and Missouri in 2012. Establishment Republicans insist that cost them a Senate majority as well as some breathing room for 2016 when 24 Republican seats are up, compared with only 10 for Democrats.Can this marriage be saved?

DALLAS (AP) Ray Price, one of country musics most popular and inuential singers and bandleaders who had more than 100 hits and was one of the last living connections to Hank Williams, died Monday. He was 87. Price died Monday afternoon at his ranch outside Mount Pleasant, Texas, said Billy Mack Jr., who was acting as a family spokesman. Billie Perryman, the wife of family friend and spokesman Tom Perryman, a DJ with KKUS-FM in Tyler, also conrmed his death. Price was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2011 and it had recently spread to his liver, intestines and lungs, according to the East Texas Medical Center in Tyler. He stopped aggressive treatments and left the hospital last Thursday to receive hospice care at home. At the time, his wife, Janie Price, relayed what she called her husbands final message to his fans: I love my fans and have devoted my life to reaching out to them. I appreciate their support all these years, and I hope I havent let them down. I am at peace. I love Jesus. Im going to be just fine. Dont worry about me. Ill see you again one day. Perhaps best known for his version of the Kris Kristofferson song For the Good Times, a pop hit in 1970, the velvet-voiced Price was a giant among traditional country performers in the 1950s, s and s, as likely to defy a trend as he was to defend one. He helped invent the genres honky-tonk sound early in his career, then took it in a more polished direction. He reached the Billboard Hot 100 eight times from 1958-73 and had seven No. 1 hits and more than 100 titles on the Billboard country chart from 1952 to 1989. For the Good Times was his biggest crossover hit, reaching No. 11 on the Billboard pop music singles chart. His other country hits included Crazy Arms, Release Me, The Same Old Me, Heartaches by the Number, City Lights and Too Young to Die. If you got a pop hit, you sold a lot more records, Price said in 2000. It was my style, really. I sang ballads, sort of laid-back. Im still a country boy. I dont pretend to be anything else. Price was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1996, long after he had become dissatisfied with Nashville and returned to his home state of Texas.Country singer Ray Price dead at 87 AP FILE PHOTOIn a Jan. 7, 2011, le photo, Country Music Hall of Fame member and Grammy award-winner Ray Price celebrates his 86th birthday by performing in Bullard, Texas. WASHINGTON (AP) Top lawmakers have found easy prey in their hunt for savings for Congress budget deal: Federal workers retirement programs, which are notably generous compared to the norm in private industry. Most federal civilian employees hired be ginning in January will contribute 4.4 percent of their pay to their pension plans under the bipartisan budget agreement. Current government workers rates will remain unchanged: Those hired in 2013 will continue paying 3.1 percent, while most on the payroll before then will keep contributing 0.8 percent. The workers say theyve been singled out for a painful hit in the measure, which the House approved last Thursday and the Senate is expected to complete this week. These are working class people, said Jackie Simon, policy director for the American Federation for Government Employees, citing Border Patrol agents and nursing assistants at Veterans Administration hospitals. These are not people who can afford it. But with federal employees low on voter priority lists and a scant presence in most congressional districts, they proved an irresistible target for lawmakers. And at a time when pensions for private industry workers are edging toward extinction, some said diminished retirement programs are a sign of the times. This is not your parents retirement youre looking at, said Olivia Mitchell, a professor and pension expert at the University of Pennsylvanias Wharton business school. While 38 percent of private industry workers received pensions in 1979, just 14 percent did in 2011, the most recent gures from the Employee Benet Research Institute, which advocates for employee benet programs. Besides having pensions, most federal workers can also put money into a 401(k)like retirement savings program, the Thrift Savings Plan, to which the government makes matching contributions. That combination is far better than whats available to most private industry workers. There, only 11 percent of employees had both savings plans and monthly pension payments to look forward to in retirement, according to the research institutes 2011 gures. In the federal workers savings program, the government matches up to the rst 5 percent of employees contributions. Only about 4 in 10 companies offer retirement savings plans. In the most common, employers match half the money workers contribute up to the rst 6 percent of pay, according to an industry survey.Congress targets fed workers pensions r^2 MrJ}r\tI +Ir/

The Sun /Tuesday, December 17, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 3 STATE NEWS DEBARY (AP) A man who said he found an abandoned newborn girl wrapped in newspapers outside a central Florida convenience store was arrested Monday and charged with lying to investigators. Ralph Garlick Jr., 53, originally told investigators that he had found the baby after hearing her cry, Volusia County Sheriffs deputies said. He agged down a newspaper deliveryman, who then called 911. Garlick identied himself to authorities using his dead brothers name, but under further questioning, he admitted the baby belonged to his girlfriend, although he isnt the father, ofcials said. Garlick said his 34-year-old girlfriend didnt want the newborn girl and that he was trying to nd a safe place for the baby, authorities said. Garlick also told investigators that the girl was born early Monday morning in an apartment complex in Orange City. Volusia County Sheriffs Ofce spokesman Gary Davidson said the false name was the rst indication that the story may not be accurate. But investigators also found it odd that, based on his story, he would have had to pass a sher iffs ofce substation, yet he didnt stop there to alert authorities to the so-called abandoned baby. That would have been a safe location he could have gone to, Davidson said. The baby was taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando, where doctors said she appeared to be in good condition, according to the Volusia County Sheriffs Ofce. Once the baby is medically cleared, she will be turned over to the Florida Department of Children and Families. Under Florida law, a newborn can be left at a public place, such as a re station or police station without any legal repercussions. Garlick is charged with two misdemeanors knowingly giving false information to law enforcement during an investigation and resisting an ofcer without violence. He was booked into the Volusia County Jail and faces bail of up to $5,000. Volusia County Sheriffs Ofce spokesman Gary Davidson said investigators were determining whether the newborns mother would face charges. She was taken to Central Florida Regional Hospital in Sanford, Fla., where she was being questioned by investigators.

Pinellas County Sheriffs ofcials say the mass turned out to be two necklaces stolen during a Dec. 10 burglary in Safety Harbor. Twenty-one-year-old Joseph Ramos was arrested Dec. 11 when he was stopped for driving a vehicle that was stolen during the burglary. Various items from the home were inside the vehicle. When Ramos was being booked into jail, he stepped on the SecurPass X-ray machine and the dark spot was identied as the necklaces. He underwent surgery to remove the necklaces. The owner later identied the items. Jail ofcials have been using the X-ray machine since June to detect items concealed on inmates.Fla. jury mulls death penalty for Little TonyFORT LAUDERDALE (AP) Anthony Little Tony Ferrari should be sentenced to die for a prominent businessmans slaying because the gangland-style hit was coldly planned for weeks and the victim suffered after he was shot multiple times, a prosecutor told jurors Monday. The state offered only two witnesses in the penalty phase of the case, relying instead on evidence presented during a nearly month-long trial. Ferrari, 56, was convicted of rst-degree murder in the February 2001 killing of Konstantinos Gus Boulis, founder of the Miami Subs restaurant chain and former owner of the SunCruz Casinos gambling eet. Assistant State Attorney Gregg Rossman said Ferrari should be condemned to death by injection because the killing was premeditated, because Boulis suffered and knew he was dying and because Ferrari was motivated by money a power struggle over the lucrative SunCruz ships. Each of these points is an aggravating factor that justies the death penalty, he said. The facts you need to determine this youve already heard, Rossman told jurors. Is there any pretense, any imagined moral justication in the mind of the person who committed this crime? I submit there is none.14 hurt in bus, truck collision in Pinellas ParkPINELLAS PARK (AP) Fourteen people are being treated for minor injuries after a pickup truck crashed into a municipal bus in Pinellas Park.

Page 4 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, December 17, 2013 FROM PAGE ONE ALMANAC Today is Tuesday, Dec. 17, the 351st day of 2013. There are 14 days left in the year. Today in historyOn Dec. 17, 1938, German chemists Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassmann discovered nuclear fission by splitting the nuclei of uranium into lighter elements while performing experiments in Berlin. On this dateIn 1777, France recognized American independence. In 1830, South American patriot Simon Bolivar died in Colombia. In 1903, Wilbur and Orville Wright of Dayton, Ohio, conducted the first successful manned powered-airplane flights near Kitty Hawk, N.C., using their experimental craft, the Wright Flyer. In 1925, Col. William Billy Mitchell was convicted at his court-martial in Washington of insubordination for accusing senior military officials of incom petence and criminal negligence; he was suspended from active duty. In 1957, the United States successfully test-fired the Atlas intercontinental ballistic missile for the first time. In 1959, Stanley Kramers anti-nuclear war drama On the Beach, starring Gregory Peck and Ava Gardner, premiered on all seven continents (including Antarctica). In 1979, in a case that aggra vated racial tensions, Arthur McDuffie, a black insurance exec utive, was fatally injured after leading police on a chase with his motorcycle in Miami. (Four white police officers accused of beating McDuffie were later acquitted, sparking riots.) In 1981, members of the Red Brigades kidnapped Brig. Gen. James L. Dozier, the highestranking U.S. Army official in southern Europe, from his home in Verona, Italy. (Dozier was rescued 42 days later.) Todays birthdays Actor Armin Mueller-Stahl is 83.

MILAN (AP) A provocatively adorned outdoor Christmas tree in central Milan was just too naughty for city officials, who have ordered it denuded of its racy red sex toys. The city said in an order that the Christmas season, qualifying as a holiday for children and families, requires sobriety in urban decorations, in particular when using traditional symbols that distinguish Christmas. Norma Rossetti, who launched an Italian sex toy e-commerce website this year, said Friday she complied immediately with the order. But she defended the so-called Tree of Pleasure, saying the objects chosen were elegant and not obviously X-rated. She said her goal is to break down taboos by making sex toys completely normal everyday objects.ODD NEWS Christmas tree ornaments banned in Milan posted online showed the aftermath of Sundays airstrikes: leveled buildings, rubble-strewn streets and the smolder ing wreckage of vehicles. The images corresponded to Associated Press reporting on the strikes. The conict in Syria, now in its third year, has deed all attempts at peace. In addition to the staggering death toll, millions of people have been displaced from their homes, most now scattered in refugee camps and informal settlements across Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey. A biting cold spell marking the beginning of winter has added another layer of misery to their grim existence. The situation in Syria has deteriorated beyond all imagination, Ban said. In Geneva, the U.N. appealed to donors for $6.5 billion to help support the nearly 9 million uprooted Syrians, the largest-ever appeal for a single crisis. Antonio Guterres, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, said the Syrian civil war has helped push the number of people worldwide who ed conict in their homelands to more than 2 million this year alone the highest since 1994, when people ed genocide in Rwanda and bloodshed in the former Yugoslavia. He described the nearly three-year conict in Syria as a mega-crisis with regional dimensions, one that is probably the most dangerous for global peace and security since World War II. Experts say what makes the Syrian conict particularly challenging is the consistent, steady ow of refugees, overwhelming aid efforts and making it impossible to predict long-term needs. Peter Kessler, UNHCR senior regional spokesman, said at least 120,000 Syrians seek shelter in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Iraq every month. The needs are enormous and the host countries cannot meet them on their own. They need help, Kessler told the AP by phone from the Lebanese border town of Arsal, where the population has skyrocketed. Lebanon has been particularly hard hit, because the government kept the borders open and no formal refugee camps have been established. Over the past few weeks, 21,000 Syrians have ed to the Arsal area as ghting intensied in Syrias neighbor ing Qalamoun region, Kessler said.SYRIAFROM PAGE 1 to be safe and effective by late 2016 would have to be reformulated, relabeled or removed from the market. I suspect there are a lot of consumers who assume that by using an anti-bacterial soap product they are protecting themselves from illness, protecting their families, said Sandra Kweder, deputy director in the FDAs drug center. But we dont have any evidence that that is really the case over simple soap and water. A spokesman for the cleaning product industry said the FDA already has a wealth of data showing the benets of its products. An FDA analysis estimates it will cost companies $112.2 million to $368.8 million to comply with the new regulations, including reformulating some products and removing marketing claims from others. The rule does not apply to hand sanitizers, most of which use alcohol rather than anti-bacterial chemicals. The agency will accept data from companies and researchers for one year before beginning to nalize the rule. The proposal comes more than 40 years after the FDA began evaluating triclosan, triclocarban and similar ingredients. Ultimately, the government only agreed to publish its findings after a threeyear legal battle with the Natural Resources Defense Council, an environmental group that accused the FDA of delaying action on potentially dangerous chemicals. Triclosan is found in an estimated 75 percent of anti-bacterial liquid soaps and body washes sold in the U.S., including some brands of Dial from Henkel AG & Co., one of the nations largest soap makers. More than 93 percent of bar soaps also contain triclocarban or triclosan, according to the FDA. While the rule only applies to personal hygiene products, it has implications for a broader $1 billion industry that includes thousands of anti-bacterial products, including kitchen knives, toys, paciers and toothpaste. Over the last 20 years, companies have added triclosan and other cleaners to thousands of household products, touting their germ-killing benets.SOAPSFROM PAGE 1 ballooning jackpot was too good to pass up. I think its ridiculous but you have to dream big, he said. The odds of winning are so low, theres no real reason to play. But its fun to do so once in a while. The large Mega Millions prize is the product of a major game revamp in October that dramatically lowered the odds of winning the jackpot. If a winner isnt selected Tuesday night and it rolls over past the next drawing scheduled Friday night, Otto predicts the jackpot will reach $1 billion an unheard of amount for Mega Millions or Powerball, the nations two main lottery games. We had predicted last week that if we are still on the same roll on Christmas Eve, well denitely be over a billion, she said. Scott Norris, a mathematician from Southern Methodist University, said he estimates around 700 million more tickets must be sold without producing a winner for the jackpot to reach $1 billion on this run. He puts the odds of that around 6 percent. Norris emphasized his calculation does not take into account the extra $1 that players can throw in for the Megaplier option, which allows them to increase their non-jackpot prize by up to ve times. John Hagerty, a spokesman for the Virginia Lottery, said ofcials cant conrm Norris cal culation. He said theres no clear number for sales if the jackpot rolls past Tuesday, so they cant accurately calculate what percentage of the possible combinations will be covered. The current jackpot, which is the fourth largest in U.S. history and closely trails the $587.5 million and $590.5 million set by Powerball, has had heavy sales over the last several days. Otto noted that the higher the jackpot, the higher the sales. For example, when the jackpot was $99 million on Nov. 5, lottery officials sold just over $20 million worth of tickets. For Fridays then-$425 million jackpot, $168 million worth of tickets were sold. Otto said its likely the jackpot will be increased again after lottery officials meet Tuesday morning to discuss sales. Between 65 and 70 percent of the roughly 259 million possible number combinations will be in play when the numbers are drawn, Otto estimated. Lotto players are procrastinators. They tend to buy on the day of the draw, she said. Some players were taken aback by the growing jackpot and the possibility that it could keep getting bigger if it rolls for a 22nd consecutive time. Natali Justiniano Pahl, 47, bought five tickets Monday morning from a convenience store in downtown. She said the growing jackpot made her excited, albeit somewhat weary.MEGAFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOEnergy Express assistant manager Anita Watson, right, sells a Mega Millions lottery ticket to Brian Thomason Monday in St. Louis. was killed in Afghanistan when his helicopter was shot down in 2011. The son worked for the NSA and support personnel for Navy SEAL Team VI. Leon, an appointee of President George W. Bush, ruled that the two men have a substantial likelihood of showing that their privacy interests outweigh the governments interest in collecting the data and therefore the NSAs bulk collection program is indeed an unreasonable search under the Constitutions Fourth Amendment. I have little doubt that the author of our Constitution, James Madison, who cautioned us to beware the abridgment of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power, would be aghast, he declared. In addition to civil liberties critics, big communications companies are unhappy with the NSA program, concerned about a loss of business from major clients who are worried about government snooping. President Barack Obama will meet Tuesday with executives from leading technology companies. The meeting was previously scheduled, but the NSA program is sure to be on the agenda, and now the court ruling will be in the mix. After the ruling, Andrew C. Ames, a spokesman for the Justice Departments National Security Division, said in a statement, Weve seen the opinion and are studying it. We believe the program is constitutional as previous judges have found. We have no further comment at this time. Snowden, in a statement provided to reporter Glenn Greenwald and obtained by The Associated Press, said, I acted on my belief that the NSAs mass surveillance programs would not withstand a constitutional challenge and that the American public deserved a chance to see these issues determined by open courts. Today, a secret program authorized by a secret court was, when exposed to the light of day, found to violate Americans rights. It is the first of many.NSAFROM PAGE 1 AP FILE PHOTOThis June 6 photo shows a sign outside the National Security Agency (NSA) campus in Fort Meade, Md.

(LA Times) Canadian researchers think they have found a great way to trace the travels of treated sewage after it is discharged into rivers: Follow the articial sweeteners. The scientists found elevated concentrations of four sweeteners cyclamate, saccharin, sucralose and acesulfame in water samples collected along the length of the Grand River in Ontario, Canada. Commonly used in diet drinks, the sweeteners got into the Grand by way of the 30 sewage treatment plants that empty into the river and its tributaries. The research, detailed in a paper published Dec. 11 in the online journal PLOS ONE, adds to a growing body of evidence that people are spiking waterways and their drinking supplies with an array of compounds that pass through not just them, but even advanced treatment systems. Antidepressants, antibiotics, steroids and fragrances are among the products that have been detected in surface waters. Some of the contaminants have been found in sh tissue. Some compounds not only get through sewage plants, they also survive purication of drinking supplies and have been measured in trace amounts in municipal tap water. That was true of the sweeteners, which were detected in samples collected from homes in cities that draw supplies from the Grand, which empties into Lake Erie. The researchers, from Environment Canada and the University of Waterloo, sampled the Grand at 23 locations along more than 150 miles from the rivers headwaters to its mouth. They found lower concentrations of cyclamate and saccharin than acesulfame and sucralose, which are tougher to remove. Acesulfame proved to be especially persistent. It was measured in elevated concentrations along the rivers entire length. That, the papers authors concluded, makes it the best candidate for tracing wastewater contamination.Artificial sweeteners found in rivers, water supplies KNIMTWEY on hoMgyM 11Ol-;l IIIli, ic i;tu TL1.

He had emailed me an article by Goldman Small Cap Research about Endeavor IP, which generates licensing revenues from wireless communications patents it owns and other communications technology patents that it intends to own. So I bought 3,000 shares at $1.02. During the next two days, it zoomed to $1.66, but then, during the following days, it crashed to $1.06. Yesterday it collapsed to 66 cents. I called the broker, and he insisted that because the price is lower, I should buy 3,000 more shares. CB, Springeld, Ill. Dear CB: Good gosh Macintosh and holy cow Charlie Chan, a few other readers also got their tutus in a twist when the wire services published a recommendation by Goldman Small Cap Research about Endeavor IP (ENIP) at 70 cents a share. That twist was especially painful because readers wrongly believed that Goldman Small Cap Research is part of a multibillion-dollar investment bank (Goldman Sachs) and condently bought hundreds of thousands of shares of ENIP at prices higher than a buck. But this was a classic and beautifully orchestrated penny stock scam. Goldman Small Cap Research touts stocks such as WhereverTV Broadcasting (TVTV-$0.07), which has zero revenues but will broadcast anywhere in the world, and Daybreak Oil and Gas (DBRM-$0.47), which explores for energy but only during the day, and Petrotech Oil & Gas (PTOG-$0.01), which sells for a dollar attractive 1,000-share certicates used primarily for wallpaper. Goldman Sachs Group (GS-$170) is a pump-anddump brokerage, too, but they pump and dump billions, not pennies. Goldman Small Cap Research is run by Rob Goldman, who writes sponsored small-cap and micro-cap stock reports and the like. Neither Rob (what a propitious name) nor Goldman Small Cap Research is a registered investment adviser or associated with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority in any capacity. However, everybodys name, including yours, is on a suckers list somewhere. So imagine getting a phone call from a penny stock broker who tells you: Goldmans research believes that this $1-a-share intellectual property stock is a pure-play technology issue. It has enormous potential licensing revenues and could enjoy similar success as (then names several successful stocks), which have market caps in the billions of dollars. Your $3,000 investment in this unique wireless intellectual property company could rival an original investment in Microsoft or IBM or Facebook. Not a single word is false. And because you want to believe this could be true, you take the hook and bait with 3,000 shares. Isnt greed a wonderful motivator? Boca Raton, Fla., has some classy midrise ofce buildings on North Federal Highway in an area called Maggot Mile. This is where numerous penny stock brokerage rms hire legions of penny stock brokers to dial for dollars. The brokers call you from boiler rooms (think Gordon Gekko and the movie Wall Street), using lists of names purchased from Internet social networks, credit card vendors and websites. In a typical scam, the promoter owns 50 million seed shares of a stock, e.g., ENIP. The shares are acquired as payment for completing forms and documents with the Securities and Exchange Commission, enabling ENIP shares to trade publicly even with questionable assets, minimal revenues and zero earnings. The promoter, several brokerages and a Rob-like guy always work together. The brokerages establish a market price by trading a few hundred shares of ENIP among themselves at 70 cents a share for about a month. Then Rob releases his carefully crafted research piece, with all the proper disclosures, to the wire services, which are always hungry for material. In the meantime, the promoter gives each brokerage 10 million shares so the sales men can begin pumping and dumping. The 3,000 shares you bought at $1.02 were probably split with 40 percent going to the promoter, 35 percent to the brokerage and 25 percent to the selling stockbroker.

Stocks have fallen lately after good economic news as investors worried that the Federal Reserve would think its stimulus was no longer needed. But Mondays gains, driven by two corporate deals and a strong report on manufacturing, suggested that investors are focused more on growth and less on the central banks actions. For a while, investors felt, Oh my goodness, we wont be able to survive without Fed support. But people are actually seeing that things really are getting better, said Brad McMillan, chief investment ofcer for Commonwealth Financial. The Fed meets for two days beginning Tuesday, and officials could signal when the Fed will dial back the stimulus that has helped boost the stock market this year. The Dow Jones industri al average rose 129 points, or 0.8 percent, to close at 15,884.57, after rising almost 175 points in the morning. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 11 points, or 0.6 percent, to 1,786.54. The Nasdaq composite was higher by 28 points, or 0.7 percent, at 4,029.52. The gains ended what had been a four-day losing streak for the S&P 500 index, beginning the week on an upbeat note after two down weeks. Two major deals caught investors attention: Chipmaker Avago Technologies is buying LSI Corp. for $6.6 billion. Avago rose $4.45, or 10 percent, to $50.10, while LSI rose $3.05, or 39 percent, to $10.96. AIG is selling its aircraft leasing business for about $5.4 billion to Dutch leasing company AerCap. AIG has been selling major assets after getting a bailout during the nancial crisis. Its shares rose 55 cents, or 1 percent, to $50.28. The Avago-LSI deal helped make tech stocks the biggest gainers among the 10 industries in the S&P 500. Others winners included computer hard-drive makers Western Digital and Seagate, which beneted from analyst upgrades.US stocks rise on signs of stronger economy (LA Times) Improving economic data havent put many Americans in the yuletide spirit, with nearly 4 in 10 saying they will spend less this holiday season than they did last year, according to survey results released Monday. Just 14 percent of consumers in the Bankrate. com survey said they planned to increase their holiday spending. Nearly half 47 percent said they planned to spend the same amount. But 38 percent of the respondents in the Dec. 5-8 survey said they would spend less this year on gifts and other purchases. The 16-day partial federal government shutdown in October could be one factor that soured the mood for consumers heading into the crucial end-of-the-year holiday shopping season. Although nancial worries related to the shutdown have disappeared and recent reports have indicated the economic recovery is strengthening, many people still are hesitant to spend, said Greg McBride, Bankrate.coms senior nancial analyst. People are feeling better about things like their net worth. They see their 401(k) increasing, theyre seeing the value of their homes rebound, but theyre not seeing it in their paycheck, he said, noting incomes have stagnated despite the recovery. People just dont have a whole lot of extra money laying around, so its difcult for them to ramp up holiday spending, McBride said.Many Americans plan less holiday spending, survey says O 0

The Sun /Tuesday, December 17, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 7 WORLD NEWS | WORLDRussia: Aug. 21 Syria chemical attack was stagedUNITED NATIONS (AP) Russia is lashing out at the U.S. and its allies on the United Nations Security Council over who is to blame for chemical weapons attacks in Syria this year. Russias ambassador on Monday told the council that the dramatic Aug. 21 attack that led to Syria agreeing to give up its chemical stockpile was staged and a largescale provocation. Vitaly Churkin compared it to the manipulation of public opinion that led up to the U.S. invasion of Iraq. He read reporters the statement he read to council members. The current council president, French Ambassador Gerard Araud, told reporters only that members had an acrimonious exchange. A U.N. inspection teams nal report last week said chemical weapons probably were used in Syria several times. The team did not say who was responsible.Wave of attacks kill 65 people in IraqBAGHDAD (AP) A double car bombing and a shooting killed 34 Shiite Muslims on pilgrimage in Iraq on Monday, the deadliest in a wave of attacks across the country that left at least 65 dead. It was the bloodiest day of violence in nearly two months. Police ofcials said the worst attack took place Monday night in the southern Baghdad suburb of al-Rasheed, when two car bombs struck a group of Shiite pilgrims walking to the holy Shiite city of Karbala, killing 23 and wounding 55. Hundreds of thousands of Shiite pilgrims are making their way to the city to commemorate Arbaeen, the end of 40 days of mourning following the anniversary of the death of the Prophet Muhammads grandson, Imam Hussein, a revered Shiite gure.Possible China deal could pep up iPhone salesBEIJING (AP) Apple Inc. might have a chance to pep up cooling iPhone sales in China if it finally can reach a deal with the worlds biggest phone carrier. Once Chinas musthave gadget, the iPhone has seen its explosive popularity squeezed as the market filled with lower-priced rivals from Samsung to ambitious local brands. Some analysts say anybody who wants an iPhone and can afford it already has one. That might change if Apple can gain access to China Mobile Ltd.s network and a new pool of potential customers. After a yearslong courtship, there are signs the two corporate giants might finally be edging toward a deal. The Wall Street Journal said it could be announced as early as this week, though China Mobile spokespeople have said the companies were still talking. On Monday, China Mobiles website was taking orders for a mystery phone called Ming Xing, or Bright Star. It showed a handset silhouette like that of an iPhone but gave no brand name.US ups security aid to SE Asia, criticizes ChinaHANOI, Vietnam (AP) U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry offered harsh words for China and new maritime security assistance for Southeast Asia on Monday to bolster countries facing growing Chinese assertiveness in a region where the two world powers are jockey ing for inuence. Tensions are running high after a near-collision of U.S. and Chinese naval vessels this month and an air defense zone China has declared over an area that includes territory controlled by Japan, a U.S. ally. Those actions have raised fresh alarm as Beijing modernizes its military and claims a wide swath of ocean and disputed islands across the East and South China Seas. Kerry used his rst visit to Vietnam as Americas top diplomat to reiterate support for diplomacy between Southeast Asias regional bloc and Beijing over the territorial disputes, and to provide aid for Southeast Asian nations to defend waters they claim as their own. Kerry pledged $32.5 million, including up to $18 million for Vietnam that will include ve fast patrol boats for its Coast Guard. With the new contribution, U.S. maritime security assistance to the region will exceed $156 million over the next two years, he said.Bachelet has big win in Chile presidential voteSANTIAGO, Chile (AP) President-elect Michelle Bachelet vowed on Monday to initiate profound social changes in Chile, a day after winning the seat with the biggest victory in eight decades. Analysts, however, noted that the 41 percent voter turnout was the lowest since Chiles return to democracy, suggesting shell need to move deliberately, not radically, when she begins her second turn in ofce next year. Bachelet will be sworn in March 11, giving outgoing President Sebastian Pinera nearly three more months in ofce. They shared an hourlong breakfast at Bachelets home Monday to discuss the transition.Israel army shoots 2 Lebanese after soldier killedJERUSALEM (AP) Israeli troops shot two Lebanese soldiers early on Monday, hours after a Lebanese army sniper killed an Israeli soldier as he drove along the volatile border late at night, the Israeli military said. The shootings raised the possibility of renewed ghting in the area, which has remained mostly quiet since a monthlong war in the summer of 2006, though an Israeli defense ofcial said Israel had no interest in further escalation. Relations between Lebanon and Israel are so fraught with tensions that any incident risks sparking a major conagration. The two have been ofcially at war since Israels creation in 1948. Each country bans its citizens from visiting the other, and there are no direct trade ties between the two. In the incident late Sunday, Israeli soldier Shlomi Cohen, 31, was fatally shot by a Lebanese army sniper near the tourist site of Rosh Hanikra on the Mediterranean Sea. JOHANNESBURG (AP) Just when it seemed the scandal over the bogus sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandelas memorial had run its course, a cousin and three friends say he was part of a mob that accosted two men found with a stolen television and burned them to death by setting re to tires placed around their necks. Thamsanqa Jantjie never went to trial for the 2003 killings when other suspects did because authorities determined he was not mentally t to stand trial, the four told The Associated Press Monday. They spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the fake signing asco, which has deeply embarrassed South Africas government and prompted a high-level investigation into how it happened. Their account of the killings matched a description of the crime and the outcome for Jantjie that he himself described in an interview published by the Sunday Times newspaper of Johannesburg. It was a community thing, what you call mob justice, and I was also there, Jantjie told the newspaper. Jantjie was not at his house Monday, and the cousin told AP Jantjie had been picked up by someone in a car Sunday and had not returned. His cellphone rang through to a message saying Jantjie was not reachable. Instead of standing trial in 2006, Jantjie was institutionalized for a period of longer than a year, the four said, and then returned to live in his poor township neighborhood on the outskirts of Soweto. At some point after that, they said, he started getting jobs doing sign language interpretation at events for the governing African National Congress party. Jantjie told the AP that he has schizophrenia, hallucinated and believed he saw angels while gesturing incoherently just 3 feet away from President Barack Obama and other world leaders at the memorial on Tuesday. Signing experts said his arm and hand movements were mere gibberish. In the interview Thursday, Jantjie said he had been violent a lot in the past, but declined to provide details. He blamed his behavior on his schizophrenia, saying he was institutionalized for 19 months, including a period during 2006. The 2003 killings, carried out by a grisly method known as necklacing, occurred a few hundred yards from Jantjies tidy concrete home, according to the cousin and friends, one of whom described himself as Jantjies best friend.Fake signer at Mandela event accused in mob attack AP PHOTOIn this le photo from Dec.10, Thamsanqa Jantjie, right, interprets in sign language for President Barack Obama during his remarks at a memorial service at FNB Stadium in honor of Nelson Mandela in Soweto, near Johannesburg. SEOUL, South Korea (AP) North Koreas propaganda machine has long kept alive the myth of a serene, all-powerful ruling dynasty that enjoyed universal love and support at home. In a single stroke last week, that came crashing down. In attempting to justify the execution of his uncle, who was also considered North Koreas No. 2 ofcial, young leader Kim Jong Un has given the world a rare look behind the scenes of a notoriously hard-to-read government. It is not a pretty sight, and many analysts believe Pyongyangs eagerness to pillory Jang Song Thaek not only destroys the image of unity projected by state-run media but also acknowledges dissension and a dangerous instability. Thats an alarming prospect as Kim Jong Un tries to revive a moribund economy even as he pushes development of nuclear-armed missiles. The subtext to the over-the-top demonizing of Jang he was accused of drug use, gambling, a planned military coup and massive corruption was a shocking admission: the Kim family wasnt in total control. Contradicting past assertions of unity and strength, North Korea has acknowledged that the leadership had indeed been roiled because of the challenge by Kims mentor and uncle after the 2011 death of Kims father, the late dictator Kim Jong Il. As nervous ofcials and apparatchiks gather Tuesday in Pyongyang for the second anniversary of the death of Kim Jong Il, the as-yet unanswerable question now is, what comes next? The charges against Jang must be taken with a large dose of skepticism; as always, the world only gets to see what the North Koreans want seen, and theres no way to prove whats true and whats not. But the fact that the claims are being aired in public, and in such detail, opens up a new view of a struggling leadership in Pyongyang, one that outside government ofcials and analysts are scrambling to gure out. Kim Jong Un has managed to tarnish his own image, look like a modern Caligula and give the lie to 90 percent of the bombast emanating from Pyongyang, said Bruce Cumings, a Korea specialist and history professor at the University of Chicago, adding that the move indicates high-level and deep divisions. Whatever one thinks of this regime, from the standpoint of the top leadership this was a politically stupid, self-defeating move, he said. The closest historical parallel to Jangs fall may be in North Korean show trials during the 1950s, which eliminated opponents of Kim Il Sung, the countrys founder and the current leaders grandfather. For many years, outside interpretations of inter necine struggles were at best educated guesses. Analysts tried to determine who had fallen from favor by the physical distance between an ofcial and the leader in pictures or from a void in state media or an announcement of sudden illness. Assumptions were also linked to the sometimes questionable assertions of North Korean defectors, many of whom had been out of the country for years and had axes to grind.N.Korea explodes myth of unchallenged rule Port Charloe Elks Lodge #215320225 Kenilworth Blvd, Port Charloe(near Veterans Blvd & Atwater)For information, call (941) 627-4313 ext. 109 or email us at Bingo@cchomelesscoalition.org.

Millions of Americans spend billions of dollars on vitamin combinations, presumably to boost their health and ll gaps in their diets. But while people who dont eat enough of certain nutrients may be urged to get them in pill form, the government doesnt recommend routine vitamin supplementation as a way to prevent chronic diseases. The studies released Monday are the latest to test if multivitamins might go that extra step and concluded they dont. Evidence is sufcient to advise against routine supplementation, said a sharply worded editorial that accompanied Mondays ndings in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. After all, most people who buy multivitamins and other supplements are generally healthy, said journal deputy editor Dr. Cynthia Mulrow. Even junk foods often are fortied with vitamins, while the main nutrition problem in the U.S. is too much fat and calories, she added. But other researchers say the jurys still out, especially for the countrys most commonly used dietary supplement multivitamins that are taken by about a third of U.S. adults, and even more people over the age of 50. Indeed, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force is deliber ating whether vitamin supplements make any difference in the average persons risk of heart disease or cancer. In a draft proposal last month, the government advisory group said for standard multivitamins and certain other nutrients, theres not enough evidence to tell. (It did caution that two single supplements, beta-carotene and vitamin E, didnt work). A nal decision is expected next year. For better or for worse, supplementations not going to go away, said Dr. Howard Sesso of Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston. He helps lead a large multivitamin study that has had mixed results suggesting small benets for some health conditions but not others and says more research is needed, especially among the less healthy. Still, theres no substitute for preaching a healthy diet and good behaviors such as exercise, Sesso cautioned. As scientists debate, here are some questions and answers to consider in the vitamin aisle: Q: Why the new focus on multivitamins? A: Multivitamins have grown more popular in recent years as research showed that taking high doses of single supplements could be risky, such as beta-carotene. Multivitamins typically contain no more than 100 percent of the daily recommended amount of various nutrients. Theyre marketed as sort of a safety net for nutrition gaps; the industrys Council for Responsible Nutrition says theyre taken largely for general wellness. Q: What are the latest ndings? A: With Alzheimers on the rise as the population ages, Harvard researchers wondered if long-term multivitamin use might help keep older brains agile. They examined a subset of nearly 6,000 male doctors, age 65 or older, who were part of a larger study. The men were given either multivitamins or dummy pills, without knowing which they were taking. After a decade of pill use, the vitamin-takers fared no better on memory or other cognitive tests, Sessos team reported Monday in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. Q: Did that Harvard study nd any other benet from multivitamins? A: The results of the Physicians Health Study II have been mixed. Overall it enrolled about 15,000 health male doctors age 50 and older, and the vitamin-takers had a slightly lower risk of cancer 8 percent. Diet and exercise are more protective. They also had a similarly lower risk of developing cataracts, common to aging eyes. But the vitamins had no effect the risk for heart disease or another eye condition, Sesso said.Do vitamins block disease? Some disappointing news AP FILE PHOTOIn this Oct. 13, 2011, le photo illustration, multivitamins are poured from a bottle in Philadelphia. NEW YORK (AP) Outside the view of paying customers, people accused of shoplifting at Macys huge agship store are escorted by security guards to cells in Room 140, where they can be held for hours, asked to sign an admission of guilt and pay hundreds in nes, sometimes without any conclusive proof they stole anything. As shoppers jam stores ahead of the December holidays, claims of racial proling at department stores in New York have helped expose the wide latitude that laws in at least 27 states give retailers to hold and ne shoplifting suspects, even if a person hasnt yet technically stolen any thing, is wrongly accused or criminal charges are dropped. You must remember, these people are not police ofcers; they are store employees, said Faruk Usar, the attorney for a 62-yearold Turkish woman who sued Macys, which some customers say bullied them into paying nes on the spot or harassed them with letters demanding payment. When they are detained, they are not yet even in a real jail. Industrywide, more than $12 billion is lost to shoplifting each year. The laws, which vary on strictness and ne amounts, allow stores to try to recoup some losses. Under New Yorks longstanding law, retailers may collect a penalty of ve times the cost of the stolen merchandise, up to $500 per item, plus as much as $1,500 if the merchandise isnt in a condition to be sold. A conviction is not necessary to bring a civil claim. Some customers say stores have harassed them into signing admissions of guilt in order to turn a prot not just recoup a loss. Retailers dont divulge how much money they recoup but use it in part to offset security costs, said Barbara Staib, spokeswoman for the National Association for Shoplifting Prevention. The total is a fraction of what they lose, she said. We tend to forget that retailers are the victims of crime when it comes to shoplifting, she said. But at least nine custom ers at the Macys store immortalized in Miracle on 34th Street say in lawsuits that the retailer is abusing the law, wrongly targeting minorities and holding customers for hours, years after it settled similar claims brought by the state attorney general by paying a $600,000 ne and changing practices. That agreement expired in 2008. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is investigating the new claims against retailers. Last week, New York state stores agreed to post a customer bill of rights on their websites explicitly prohibiting proling and unreasonable searches.Stores have free rein to recoup shoplifting losses HD .. `$eat6e I 8y2 ,'Q: .':.

Arlington, Texas and Glendale, Ariz., will host the NCAAs 2015 and 2016 championship games. The playoffs Management Committee chose the sites in a telephone conference call earlier today. Tampa Bay is a terric destination with a beautiful stadium and a community that is committed to hosting big events in a gracious and thorough manner, Bill Hancock, Executive Director of the College Football Playoff, said in a news release. We are very happy with the facilities, the creative proposal and the commitment of support from community leaders. Local organizers from Tampa hand-delivered a bid in late September to host the game in either 2016 or 2017. A dening moment for our community!!!!! read a tweet from Rob Higgins, executive director of the Tampa Bay Sports Commission, which submitted the bid. Said Bucs co-chairman Bryan Glazer, We are thrilled our community will once again be showcased in the national spotlight and share in the excitement generated by the NCAA National Championship Game. The bid is built around the partnerships that have brought four Super Bowls to Tampa. Participants include the city of Tampa, Hillsborough County, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Tampa Sports Authority and Raymond James Stadium, Visit Tampa Bay, Tampa International Airport, the Florida Sports Foundation and the regions hospitality industry.

NFL: Tampa BayTime passes quickly for no-huddleTAMPA Bringonthehurryup. No need to pause in that sentence since the no-huddle offense was created for tempo and rookie quarterback Mike Glennon operated it to perfection in the Tampa Bays two touchdown drives during Sundays 33-14 loss to the 49ers. However, dont expect that two-minute thrill offense to be the norm for the Bucs and Glennon moving forward even though Tampa Bay has sunk to last in the NFL in total offense (283.7 yards a game), passing offense (178.1 yards a game) and third down conversion percentage (32). Because we scored twice with it I get home and they say, why didnt we do more of the no huddle? Bucs coach Greg Schiano said Monday. I get the same things. Im just kidding around. I guess my point is, against a team like that I thought wed be able to run it better and get into a time of possession. When you go no huddle, especially when they get you three and out, your time of possession is almost nil. We have three differ ent tempos that we go no huddle. We jumped into one of the tempos of no huddles, I think it was the third series, so you cant go much quicker than By RICK STROUDTAMPA BAY TIMESSchiano says the approach offers limited value to Tampa Bay BUCS AT RAMSWHO: Tampa Bay (4-10) at St. Louis (6-8) WHEN: Sunday, 1 p.m. WHERE: Edward Jones Dome, St. Louis TV: FOX RADIO: 103.5 FM, 620 AMBUCS | 3 PORT CHARLOTTE The set play Charlotte High School coach Tom Massolio called Slam wasnt any kind of dunk. But for Port Charlotte on Monday night, it was positively earthshaking. The Slam play opened Tarpons guard Adrian Ivankovic for a 3-pointer at the buzzer at the end of the third quarter, sending Charlotte on its way to a 56-50 victory against Port Charlotte. On the play, Tarpons guard Mason Bokon fed Invankovic a few feet away from the 3-point arc, Ivankovic faked to open a little space and then buried the shot. He had the shot fake, but that was the kind of action we wanted right there, Massolio said. And how. The Charlotte side of Tony Cicchella Gymnasium erupted. Ivankovic leaped and pumped his st in a celebration wor thy of a game much later in the season. He erupted as if it had been a game-winner but it might as well have been.

The Placida resident completed the 31.07-mile event Saturday in 6 hours, 39 minutes. Stetter, 55, was eighth overall and the oldest of the 20 who nished, according to results posted on the events online site. She was the third woman to nish. I nished, Stetter said Sunday. That was my goal. Yesterday I just tried to take it one step at a time. I did better than I ever thought. Stetter trained four months for the ultra, her rst. During training she received pointers from ultra runner Don Fialka, who ran alongside her during the third, and nal, lap of the course. He helped slow her pace. I was going too fast, and I still had a little way to go, said Stetter, who took breaks in between each lap to hydrate, eat and tend to aches. I could have gotten hurt. She praised event director Justin Radley for making sure participants had food, drink and supplies they needed at the aid stations. There wasnt a thing they forgot. He went out of his way and beyond to make sure you were covered, she said. I already told Justin Ill be back. Stetter said the 10-mile Caloosahatchee Regional Park trail was a mixed terrain, rm ground with soft spots too. There were roots, rocks, hills, hairpin turns, she said. You had to take every step with caution. The course was challenging but fun, she said. It was very well-maintained. Stetter emerged healthy. Im feeling good, she said. I have a couple of blisters, a couple of aches. She didnt run Sunday and Monday. But she planned to run a 5K today and a 8K Wednesday because she competes Saturday in the Frosty 5K in Sarasota. Share an accomplishment with Barbara Boxleitner at BKLE3@aol.com.One step at a time, Stetter reaches goalBy BARBARA BOXLEITNERSUN CORRESPONDENT RECREATIONAL SPORTS UNIONDALE, N.Y. Tampa Bay Lightning winger Alex Killorn nally found himself on the receiving end of some hockey karma Sunday. Killorn, mired in a 12-game scoring drought, snapped the streak in a unique way, getting a goal without putting the puck in the net. With just over a minute left in Sundays 3-0 victory over the Red Wings, Killorn carried the puck into the Detroit zone and attempted a shot at the vacated goal. But Killorn was hooked by a Wings player, falling down to the ice as his shot sailed wide of the left post. The puck bounced back in front to Teddy Purcell, who put it in. However, it was Killorn who was credited with the tally, due to rule 25.1, which states if the opposing goalie is pulled, and a player has possession of the puck in the neutral zone with no defender between him and the net, hes awarded a goal if he is prevented from scoring due to a penalty. That was a big joke on the bench actually, he doesnt even need to shoot them now to go into the net, coach Jon Cooper quipped. We had good laughs about that on the bench. He deserved that, he made a great play on the wall. Teddy Purcell puts it in the open net and he was the rst guy back saying, I hope Killer gets that goal. Killorn, 24, gured if the Wings took a bad enough penalty, hed get a goal, but when he missed the net, he wasnt sure. Hell gladly take it, his rst goal since Nov. 16, hoping its a sign of good things to come heading into todays game against the Islanders. As the games keep going by, when you keep not scoring, as much as you try to stay focused, it kind of wears on you a little bit, Killorn said. Ive hit like three or four posts in the last ve games, so to get one like that boosts your condence even though I didnt score. Its not like Killorn, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound forward, wasnt playing well during his scoring slump. Cooper pointed out Killorn was probably getting the best chances on our team recently. Its the ultimate cliche of the game of inches, Cooper said. I could never fault a guy, hes trying as hard as he can, hes putting them in position to score. But these guys have pride, they start getting these chances theyre getting and they dont go in for them, it starts to eat away at them because theyre not seeing the results. But if you keep getting these chances, eventually theyll go in. Killorn, who has seven goals, 10 assists and is plus-four this season, has transitioned well from center to wing, where he skates alongside Teddy Purcell and Valteri Filppula. Cooper said Killorn can play center, where players have more defensive responsibility, but he didnt have much left in the tank when he got on the offensive side.

The Sun /Tuesday, December 17, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 AP PHOTOMiamis Michael Thomas, center, is congratulated by teammates after intercepting a pass intended for New Englands Austin Collie during the second half of Sundays game.DAVIE One play from defeat each of the past two weeks, the Miami Dolphins are now two wins from their rst playoff berth since 2008. The Dolphins (8-6) will earn the AFCs sixth and nal wild-card spot if they win Sunday at Buffalo and beat the New York Jets at home in the regular-season nale. Miami managed a second consecutive narrow escape Sunday, intercepting Tom Bradys pass in the end zone with 2 seconds left to beat AFC East leader New England 24-20. The previous week, the Dolphins won at Pittsburgh 34-28 when the Steelers Antonio Brown barely stepped out of bounds before reaching the end zone on a wild nal play. I dont care if its the last play of the game, or we won by 40 points, Miami defensive end Cameron Wake said. Either way, at the end of the day its a W in the column. The Dolphins might seem improbable playoff contenders. Theyve been outgained this year by 378 yards and rank in the lower half of the NFL in many offensive and categories. A bullying scandal had the team in a tailspin only a few weeks ago, when tackle Jonathan Martin abruptly departed and guard Richie Incognito was suspended. But the Dolphins are 5-2 since Martin left, a surge that has saved their season and might extend it. To actually do the job after what theyve gone through, this is the very essence what we call that football family, when youre going through tough situations to come out better than you actually (were) when you went in, said former Pro Bowl receiver Michael Irvin, an analyst on NFL Network. Coincidentally, the last-second hero in the latest victory was Michael Thomas, who was Martins teammate at Stanford and remains a good friend. Making his NFL debut after being signed last week off the 49ers practice squad, Thomas broke up one pass in the end zone in the nal seconds and then intercepted Brady on fourth down. That sealed the Dolphins third win in a row. Theyll be favored in their nal two, although they lost at home to lowly Buffalo in October. With Sundays victory, the Dolphins ended a streak of four consecutive losing seasons, the franchises longest since the 1960s. They also ended a streak of seven losses in a row to nemesis New England. This feels like nally getting over the hump, tackle Bryant McKinnie said. This is coming together at a good time, because you know December is when you want to be playing your best ball. McKinnie does know last season he helped the Baltimore Ravens win the Super Bowl. The Dolphins arent yet talking Super Bowl, since their most recent playoff victory came in 2000. But the bandwagons growing for the attendance-challenged franchise, and the latest seesaw victory had fans in a frenzy and players showing some swagger. As long as we dont beat ourselves, we can beat anybody, receiver Mike Wallace said. It was a great win for the organization and for the fans, but we have bigger things in mind.By STEVEN WINEASSOCIATED PRESS NFL: MiamiDestinys DolphinsPostseason within reach despite all the turmoil DOLPHINS AT BILLSWHO: Miami (8-6) at Buffalo (5-9) WHEN: Sunday, 1 p.m. WHERE: Ralph Wilson Stadium, Buffalo TV: CBS ASHBURN, Va. Mike Shanahan said he has no plans to resign, then reminded everyone that he might not be back as coach of the Washington Redskins. He then cryptically offered a picture of the possible changes that might be in store if he does return. He dropped Gary Kubiaks name twice, stoking questions that there might be a new offensive coordinator. He also said that Robert Grifn III is clearly the starting quarterback but would welcome legitimate competition from Kirk Cousins. Shanahan said Monday it was accurate that he doesnt plan to quit after what will be his third losing season in four years. The Redskins (3-11) have lost six straight, and the coach has one year remaining on his ve-year, $35 million contract. However, he reiterated that his fate wll not be determined until he and owner Dan Snyder meet at the end of the season and discuss their views about the direction of the franchise. All we can do at the end of the season is communicate, Shanahan said. And I think we have that type of relationship where we can talk and be honest to each other. One possibility is that Shanahan returns with a new set of coordinators. Jim Haslett could be on the bubble, given the way the defense has performed, but a change on the other side seemed improbable because the offensive coordinator is his son, Kyle. Incognito to sit out season: Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito will remain on the NFLs suspended list with pay for the rest of the season, including the playoffs, a person familiar with the situation said. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the bullying scandal that led to Incognitos suspen sion remains under investigation. The person said Incognito would be in line for a playoff share. Coach Joe Philbin declined to comment. Dallas loss brought Bryant to tears: Dez Bryant said he left the field with time remaining in Dallas crushing loss on Sunday because he couldnt watch Green Bay kneel that ball down and that he cried when he got to the locker room.The Cowboys blew a 26-3 halftime lead and lost 37-36 after Tony Romo threw an interception with a chance to run out most of the clock with a 36-31 lead. Around the league: Chicago Bears CB Charles Tillman will miss the remainder of the season because of a torn right triceps. Rex Ryan said theres no question hes still the right man to be coach of the New York Jets beyond this season, adding that the Jets (6-8) are going in the right direction despite a third straight non-winning season. Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts could miss the teams final two games with a groin injury that forced him to sit out Sundays game against Buffalo.Shanahan: No plans to resignBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NFL NOTEBOOK DETROIT Justin Tuckers 61-yard eld goal with 38 seconds remaining lifted the Baltimore Ravens to an 18-16 victory over the Detroit Lions on Monday night. Tuckers sixth eld goal of the game helped the Ravens (8-6) remain in AFC playoff position while dropping the Lions (7-7) into third place in the NFC North behind Chicago (86) and Green Bay (7-6-1). The Ravens led 9-7 at halftime before Tucker connected from 49 yards for his 31st consecutive eld goal. David Akers answered with a 40-yarder for Detroit later in the third quarter. Akers eld goal came after Matthew Staffords pass into the end zone fell incomplete. A replay showed Detroit receiver Kris Durham had his arm held on the play by Lardarius Webb, but there was no penalty ag for pass interference. Reggie Bush ran for a 14-yard touchdown in the rst quarter, but the Ford Field crowd quieted down after that. Stafford was 11 of 20 for 131 yards and an interception through three quarters, hurt by a pair of uncharacteristic drops by Calvin Johnson. Tucker also kicked eld goals of 29, 24 and 32 yards the third one on the nal play of the rst half. Two of the eld goals were set up by Detroit penalties on deep incompletions by Baltimores Joe Flacco. Both passes were intended for Marlon Brown. The Lions were called for pass interference on one, giving the Ravens the ball at the Detroit 10-yard line and setting up the eld goal that made it 7-6. The more damaging penalty came on third down in the nal seconds of the half. Detroit safety Louis Delmas was called for a personal foul for hitting Brown on a pass that fell short of the receiver.

FAU hires Bielema assistantBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSBOCA RATON Arkansas assistant head coach and defensive line coach Charlie Partridge was hired Monday as head coach at Florida Atlantic. A native of nearby Plantation, Partridge has worked under head coach Bret Bielema the past six years, including five seasons at Wisconsin and the past season at Arkansas. He helped the Badgers reach the Rose Bowl three times. Partridge also coached at Pittsburgh, Eastern Illinois, Iowa State and Drake, where he played and graduated in 1995. He will be introduced at a news conference today. Carl Pelini resigned Oct. 30 after FAU said he and defensive coordinator Pete Rekstis acknowledged using illegal drugs. Rekstis also resigned. Offensive coordinator Brian Wright succeeded him as interim coach and went 4-0 with the Owls, who finished this season 6-6 overall and 4-4 in Conference USA. Around the nation: Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart said he has more confidence in Butch Jones now than when he hired the Volunteers football coach a year ago, despite a 5-7 record this season. Im very pleased with where the program is headed, Hart said in an interview with the AP. Citadels Kevin Higgins has been hired as assistant head coach at Wake Forest under new coach Dave Clawson. Higgins was 43-58 at Citadel, which competed in the Football Championship Subdivision. Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said the starting quarterback will once again likely be a game-time decision when the 11th-ranked Sooners face Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 2. Freshman Trevor Knight began the season as Oklahomas starter, but he gave way to junior Blake Bell for much of the season. Defensive end Brad Daly is the second consecutive Montana State football player to win the Buck Buchanan Award, presented to the top defensive player in the FCS. COLLEGE FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK potential for a national championship game, it was an event we were focused on, Higgins said. The Chick-l-A Bowl and Fiesta Bowl will serve as host for the College Football Playoff seminals prior to the Jan. 9, 2017 National Championship Game at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. The 2016 title game will be Jan. 11, 2016 at the University of Phoenix Stadium. The Orange Bowl and the Cotton Bowl will serve as host sites for the seminals that year. The College Football Playoff will begin next season and will feature the four top teams as selected by the College Football Playoff Selection Committee. The Rose Bowl and the Sugar Bowl will play host to the rst national seminals, which will pit No. 1 versus No. 4 and No. 2 versus No. 3 on January 1, 2015. The winners of those two games will face off Jan. 12, 2015 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The Championship Game will be a signicant event on the American calendarnot only the sports calendar, but also the cultural calendar, Hancock said. The BCS championship has been the second most-watched annual sports event in the United States, trailing only the Super Bowl, and the playoff game will rise to a new level. Fans across the nation hope their teams will make it, and many set their travel schedules around it. Its a real feather in the cap of the community that earns the right to host it. Playing the national championship game in three different time zones in the rst three years is important, Hancock said. ESPN.com reported that in addition to Tampa, Jacksonville, New Orleans and Glendale, Ariz. were expected to bid for the 2016 championship. Jacksonville, Miami, San Antonio, San Francisco and Minneapolis were believed to be in the hunt for the 2017 title game. It was a difcult decision for the management committee, because there were many good options, but Arizona and Tampa Bay were selected because of their top-notch facilities and because of the thorough proposals their leaders submitted, Hancock said.TITLEFROM PAGE 1 that. You can if you do it the whole game. I didnt want to do it. The only success on offense Sunday came with Glennon operating the no huddle. He capped an 80-yard drive at the end of the rst half with an 11-yard touchdown pass to Vincent Jackson and led the Bucs to a 92-yard march that resulted in a 24-yard score to tight end Tim Wright. The Bucs other nine possessions netted 11 yards. Weve done it at different times this year, Schiano said. Weve opened halves with it, especially when we werent very effective in the rst half. It can be used as a jump-start sometimes. It can be used as a way to put the gas pedal down on somebody if youre rolling them pretty good. But Schiano said the Bucs are not built to run the no huddle exclusively, and he prefers ball control, with emphasis on running. On Sunday, the Bucs were held to 39 yards rushing on 12 attempts. That enabled the 49ers to enjoy a huge advantage in time of possession (39:50 to 20:10). Whats been the trouble with the running game? Negative plays. So when you look at it, its not just total yardage, Schiano said. I felt good, we came out and ran the football and we get a holding penalty, so its not like theres any problem other than a 10-yard gain became a 10-yard loss. We werent very effective and thats why we went to that, to try and stir it up a bit. My hope was we could go back and forth. Thats not who we are. Just because it works, that doesnt mean I want to go play a whole game in no huddle if thats not what we practiced. But it is a good tool. The Bucs trailed 20-14 with about 12 minutes remaining when the 49ers converted on thirdand-12 from their 29. That was the tipping point, according to Schiano, because San Francisco went on a 10:27 drive that resulted in a eld goal. Schiano said there were positives. Wright led the Bucs with seven catches for 82 yards and a touchdown. Glennon completed 18-of-34 passes for 179 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.BUCSFROM PAGE 1 tow ion'op'A pa;1 41VT r S...............................................................................

Page 4 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, December 17, 2013 When Doc Rivers coached in Boston, he said he never talked to the Celtics about winning their division. There were far more important goals. Now Rivers could have a say in whether divisions themselves are important. With every team in the Atlantic Division below .500, deputy commissioner Adam Silver said in a radio interview last week he expected the leagues competition committee to discuss whether its worth having them. Rivers is on the committee, and doesnt sound eager to see them go. I dont think they should, he said. I think it would be hard to do. Winners of the three divisions in each conference are guaranteed a top-four seed in the playoffs. That means the champion of a bad division is not only guaranteed a spot, but possibly a more favorable opponent than a better team. Returning to the pre2004 format of two divisions in each conference would help nobody would be complaining about the Atlantic leader if Miami was still in it but that would be difcult because they would be unbalanced with 15 teams in each conference. So perhaps this is like issues such as resting healthy players or intentional fouls away from the ball, where the committee discusses it but eventually declines to recommend changes. Fine by Rivers. Obviously, this year you look at it and you say, Wow, it would be nice to have the top 16 teams, or whatever it is, said Rivers, now coaching the Los Angeles Clippers. This has been going on for a while, but at the end of the day I think its ne the way it is now. The next meeting of the nine-member committee, comprised of coaches, general managers and owners, hasnt been scheduled.League may reach a divide over divisionsBy BRIAN MAHONEYASSOCIATED PRESS NBA Gators closing with confidenceGAINESVILLE When Florida coach Billy Donovan sensed his team was getting in trouble down the stretch last season, he rarely had to consult the scoreboard. The faces of the Florida players usually said enough. We would get this glazed look over our eyes, and we would be separated, Donovan recalled on Monday. But after watching his team lose a slew of close games a season ago, Donovan has seen the current Gators unite in crunch time. No. 16 Florida (7-2) enters tonights matchup with No. 15 Memphis (7-1) during the Jimmy V Classic with two wins in the past three games by six points or fewer. If not for an unlucky tip and buzzer-beating jump shot two weeks ago by Connecticuts Shabaaz Napier, the Gators would have pulled out three straight nail-biters. Last season, Florida was 0-6 in close games, including second-half collapses at Kentucky, Arizona and Missouri, as well as during the SEC tournament title game against Mississippi. Our guys in these games have maybe shown better poise, have handled themselves better, have had a better understanding of what it needs to be done in those situations, especially on the defensive end of the floor, Donovan said. I think its a work in progress, Donovan said. I think weve gotten better. I think we have older guys that have been through it that understand what were looking to do in that situation. Florida could face similar circumstances again against Memphis. The Tigers average 84.8 points and handed No. 7 Oklahoma State its only loss, a 73-68 decision during the final of the Old Spice Classic on Dec. 1 in Orlando. With senior point guard Scottie Wilbekin and freshman point guard Kasey Hill available together for just the second time, the Gators are better-equipped for an up-tempo game than they have been all season.

It was Miamis 17th straight victory over a Western Conference opponent, the second-longest regular-season streak by an Eastern Conference team in NBA history. Boston won 20 straight over the West during a nine-month span of 1973. Chris Bosh scored 20 points for the Heat, who moved within two games of Indiana for the East lead. Miami plays host to the Pacers on Wednesday. There was some drama, though. James left late in the third quarter after twisting his ankle on a dribble about 30 feet from the basket. After re-lacing his sneaker his typical self-inicted treatment for ankle twists he wound up getting subbed out a few seconds later. He walked off the court slowly, took a seat on the oor near the Heat bench and smacked his hand on the hardwood with such anger that the hit could be heard halfway up the arena.HEAT 117, JAZZ 94UTAH (94) Jeerson 1-5 0-0 3, Williams 4-10 0-0 8, Favors 8-12 1-3 17, Burke 1-8 0-0 3, Hayward 2-8 3-4 7, Burks 12-17 5-8 31, Evans 2-6 0-0 4, Rush 0-1 0-0 0, Kanter 6-11 2-2 14, Garrett 1-2 0-0 3, Lucas III 0-0 0-0 0, Biedrins 0-0 0-0 0, Harris 2-4 0-0 4.

The Sun /Tuesday, December 17, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 5 The outside of the mittens say Go USA. The insides say Made in China. Less than two years after being criticized for having the U.S. Olympic teams uniforms made in China, the U.S. Olympic Committee has another wardrobe malfunction on its hands. The red-white-andblue mittens its selling to raise funds for winter athletes were produced in China. It says so right on the tag on the inside. The USOC is charging $14 a pair for the blue hand-warmers that have the word Go embroidered in red on the left mitten and USA on the right. Also part of that left mitten is the tag, which says the gloves are % acrylic, One Size Fits Most and Made in China. USOC spokesman Patrick Sandusky said the ofcial mittens being worn by the athletes at the opening ceremony are made in the USA. Theyre also available to the public for $98 a pair on the Ralph Lauren website, which proudly proclaims its products are Made in America almost everywhere you look on the page for its ofcial Team USA collection. But the federation, which receives no government funding and is always trying to nd new ways to raise money for its athletes, was going for a lower price point for its fundraiser. With the games more than a month away, it has raised $500,000 from the mitten sales. We wanted to create a fundraising opportunity where almost anyone could support Team USA, Sandusky said. The foreign-made mittens are available at the USOCs ofcial online shop of the U.S. Olympic Team. The mittens are an American spin on an idea that started in Canada at the last Winter Games. The host country produced Go Canada mittens that turned out to be the hot item of the Olympics, raising more than $14 million for the Canadian team. Those mittens, which sold for $10 a pair, were made in China, too. The USOC, meanwhile, has tried to be extra careful about where its goods are manufactured since running into trouble when news broke that its 2012 team uniforms were produced in China. Congressmen from both parties piled onto the PR gaffe, with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., saying, I think they should take all the uniforms, put them in a big pile and burn them and start all over again. Shortly after that, the USOC said all future team uniforms would be made in the United States and, true to its word, the 2014 versions are. Fans can buy almost all components of the uniforms among them, pullover sweaters, the same boots the athletes will wear at the opening ceremony and, of course, the $98 Go for gold TEAM USA mittens that also say Go USA. Some of the proceeds from those sales go to the U.S. team, per terms of licensing agreements with Ralph Lauren.Fundraising mittens create PR gaffBy EDDIE PELLSASSOCIATED PRESS OLYMPICS: USOC Sports on TVMENS COLLEGE BASKETBALL7 p.m. ESPN Jimmy V Classic, Pittsburgh vs. Cincinnati, at New York FS1 Yale at Providence 8 p.m. FSN Texas-Arlington at Oklahoma 9 p.m. ESPN Jimmy V Classic, Florida vs. Mem phis, at New York ESPN2 Missouri St. at Louisville FS1 Ball St. at MarquetteNHL HOCKEY7 p.m. FSFL PANTHERS at Toronto SUN LIGHTNING at N.Y.

The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association board voted 6-3 Sunday to turn down Sin Citys offer in favor of an agreement with Floridas Osceola County, south of Orlando. Osceola County commissioners voted 5-0 Sunday to accept a memorandum of understanding that allows 90 days to close the deal. The plan calls for the 2015 event to be held at the nearby Amway Center, home of the Orlando Magic; county ofcials vowed to have a new, 24,000-seat arena ready for the fall of 2016.BOXINGKlitschko chooses political sparring: Vitali Klitschko vacated his WBC world heavyweight title and said he doesnt expect to fight again as he pursues a presidential bid in his home country, the Ukraine, where citizens have been protesting for weeks in Kiev over President Viktor Yanukovychs decision to shun closer ties with the European Union and push his country toward Russia.AMERICAN SOCCERCrew swing two deals: Columbus traded keeper Andy Gruenebaum to Sporting Kansas City for a second-round pick in 2016 and also acquired goalkeeper Steve Clark from Seattle Sounders FC for a fourthround pick in the 2015 draft. Elsewhere in the MLS, Seattle re-signed defender Leo Gonzalez, one of seven remaining players from the clubs first season (2009). The New York Red Bulls re-signed defender Roy Miller and keeper Luis Robles. Terms were not disclosed. Vancouver hired Carl Robinson as its coach.

Fox also announced it had renewed rights to the Europa League through 2017-18. Tottenham fired manager Andre Villas-Boas, a day after the club slumped to a second lopsided Premier League loss in less than a month. Tottenhams 5-0 loss at home to Liverpool came after a 6-0 defeat at Manchester City on Nov. 24. The Spurs are seventh, five points from the fourth Champions League spot. Gianfranco Zola resigned as manager of second-tier English club Watford. Watford is 13th in the 24-team league, having failed to win any of its last nine games.

Page 6 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, December 17, 2013 ST. PETERSBURG Tampa Bay inelder Tim Beckham is expected to miss at least a portion of next season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. The No. 1 pick in the 2008 baseball draft was injured during an offseason workout and will require surgery. Beckham made his major league debut in September after batting .276 with four homers and 51 RBIs at Triple-A Durham. The 23-year-old appeared in ve games for the Rays, going 3 for 7 and driving in one run. Diamondbacks trade for closer: Arizona acquired closer Addison Reed from the Chicago White Sox in exchange for third base prospect Matt Davidson. Reed, who turns 25 this month, ranked fifth in the American League and seventh in the majors with 40 saves last season. The 22-year-old Davidson, a former first-round pick, made his major league debut last season, appearing in 31 games with Arizona. MLB reaches deal with Japanese league: Major League Baseball and Nippon Professional Baseball have finalized a new posting system that caps the fee for players at $20 million, a deal that may lead to star pitcher Masahiro Tanaka going on the market. Under the rules of the three-year agreement announced Monday, a Japanese club may make players available between Nov. 1 and Feb. 1 and may set a price of up to $20 million. Starting with the day after a player is posted and continuing for 30 days, any big league team willing to pay the fee may attempt to sign the player. A major league team pays the posting fee only if it signs the player, and the fee is then payable in installments, with the timing dependent on the amount. Around the nation: John Axford, who had 46 saves for Milwaukee in 2011 but has struggled the past two seasons, agreed to terms on a contract with Cleveland, pending a physical. The Indians also signed free agent pitcher Shaun Marcum, a 32-year-old righthander, to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training St. Louis signed free-agent second baseman Mark Ellis to a one-year deal. Terms were not disclosed. The 36-year-old hit .270 with six home runs and 48 RBIs for the Los Angeles Dodgers last season. Minnesota agreed with right-hander Mike Pelfrey on an $11 million, two-year contract. The contract is pending a physical, the person told The Associated Press. Pelfrey made $4.1 million last season in a one-year deal with the Twins. Kansas City filled the most glaring hole in its roster, finalizing a $30.25 million, four-year deal with Omar Infante to become its primary second baseman. The agreement includes a club option for 2018. Atlanta agreed to a $4 million, one-year contract with right-hander Gavin Floyd, who is recovering from surgery in May to repair the ulnar collateral ligament and a torn flexor muscle in his right elbow. The 30-year-old passed a physical in Atlanta. Boston right fielder Shane Victorino underwent surgery to release a nerve in his right thumb. Boston said Dr. Thomas Graham operated in Cleveland and that Victorino is expected to be ready to participate in spring training.Tampa Bay prospect hurts kneeBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BASEBALL NOTEBOOOK SPRING TRAINING COUNTDOWN58Days until Tampa Bay Rays pitchers and catchers report for spring training on Feb. 14 at Charlotte Sports Park Augusta National added 14 players to the eld for the Masters when the nal world ranking of the year was published Monday. That brings the eld to 90 players who are expected to compete April 10-13, and again raises the possibility of the Masters exceeding 100 players for the rst time in nearly 50 years. Augusta National has the smallest eld of the four majors and prefers to keep it under 100 to enhance the experience at its tournament. This is the third time in the last four years that the eld was at least 90 players going into a new year. There were 99 play ers for the 2011 Masters, the most since 103 players competed in 1966. Those who qualied by being in the top 50 of the nal ranking were Hideki Matsuyama, Thomas Bjorn, Jamie Donaldson, Victor Dubuisson, Gonzalo FernandezCastano, Miguel Angel Jimenez, Francesco Molinari, Rickie Fowler, Matteo Manassero, David Lynn, Thongchai Jaidee, Peter Hanson, Joost Luiten and Branden Grace. Players can qualify by winning a PGA Tour event (except for the Puerto Rico Open) or being in the top 50 on March 30, a full week before the Masters. Matsuyama qualied at No. 23. It will be his third appearance at the Masters, and his rst as a pro. Matsuyama was a two-time winner of the Asia-Pacic Amateur, which awards an exemption to the Masters. He made the cut both times as an amateur. Im ecstatic I qualied for the Masters through my play for this year, Matsuyama said through an interpreter in October, when it was clear he would be in the top 50. He won four times this year on the Japan Golf Tour and had a pair of top 10s in the majors. Fowler was the only American of the 14 from the world ranking, though two other players (Peter Hanson, David Lynn) were PGA Tour members, who have more options available during the year. The Masters changed the criteria for the 2014 tournament, though that appears to have little bearing on the number of qualied players. Because the PGA Tour went to a wraparound season (October through September), the Masters awarded spots to the winners of tournaments held in the fall. Jimmy Walker, Ryan Moore and Chris Kirk qualied by winning those events. The other winners of fall events Webb Simpson, Dustin Johnson and Harris English previously were eligible for the Masters.World rankings adds 14 to Masters fieldBy DOUG FERGUSONASSOCIATED PRESS GOLF: The Masters | MASTERS FIELDAUGUSTA, Ga.

For a team that hasnt won to still have the fight to come back from three goals down is a good sign, Imagine coach Ryan Alvarez said. Im very proud of the team for not giving up in that situation. Michael Prada began the rally with a goal on which he beat four defenders. Blake Bennice drew Imagine within one on a 25-yard free kick that ricocheted off the crossbar and just past the line in the 71st minute. The goal was his first. Prada tied the game in the 76th minute on a free kick from approximately 35 yards out that skimmed just under the cross bar. The goals were Pradas third and fourth this season. Pablo Mollineda (7 saves) and Matt Combs (10) split time in goal for the Sharks (0-7-1). Imagine had a chance to win in the final minute, but a one-on-one breakaway on goal resulted in a shot that went over the cross bar.GIRLS SOCCERBradenton Christian 5, Imagine 0: In Bradenton, the hosts scored five times in the first half and coasted. Melissa Fierro recorded 11 saves in goal for Imagine. She is really improving her range inside the box, Imagine coach Dennis Leach said. Stephanie Legge had a solid game at center full, including heading off a couple of runs on goal, and Katie Scarlett, center mid, was all over the place, in a good way. Leach also singled out the play of right wing Courtney Philbrick. Imagine (1-9) returns to action Jan. 7 at home against Cardinal Mooney.BOYS BASKETBALLEverglade City 55, Community Christian 49: In Port Charlotte, Community Christian (3-3) closed to within four points in the third quarter before Everglade City pulled away for a non-district victory.EVERGLADE CITY 55, COMM.

Charlotte (6-3) then rode the momentum the rest of the way. Ivankovic lead the Tarpons with 14 points, hitting all three of his 3-point attempts in the third quarter as Charlotte began to pull away. Dwight Reynolds had 10 points and nine rebounds. Kyle Collins scored 12 points to lead Port Charlotte (5-1), which lost its first game. Nicksen Blanc added 11 points and 10 rebounds. Pirates coach Bill Specht hoped it gave his team a dose of reality ahead of the holiday break. Weve been heading that way for the last three or four games, Specht said. We broke down the video and we showed them were not fighting to the ball. They outfought us to 50-50 balls, outrebounded us. But the Tarpons also killed the Pirates with 3-pointers. They hit 5 of 7 in the third quarter to pull away and made 6 of 12 in the contest. That came after a loss to 61-51 loss to North Port on Thursday that saw the Tarpons make 5 of 26 3-point attempts. We didnt shoot good the last game we played and we knew that, Massolio said. The team we played, North Port, had a lot to do with that. I dont think well shoot that bad again. Were a good shooting team. But they also got to a lot of loose balls and beat out a much bigger Port Charlotte team for offensive rebounds and easy putbacks. They also limited Blanc with a defensive scheme that really bothered the Pirate senior, holding him without a eld goal in the fourth quarter. Youre not going to stop that kid, Massolio said of Blanc. But I think we slowed him down in the second half.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.com CHARLOTTE 56, PORT CHARLOTTE 50Charlotte 12 9 20 15 56 Port Charlotte 13 10 13 14 50 CHARLOTTE (56): Dwa.

ROACH: I am a 60-year-old female who is 5 feet, 3 inches tall and w eighs 180 pounds. For the past 10 years, I have not exercised because of arthritis in my knees. I have owned a stationary bicycle for years. Now I r egularly use this machine. It does not cause pain in my knees. Since the machine causes you to push and pull against y our body weight, is this exercise sufcient for recommended daily exercise? C an this be considered strength training? Should I make myself walk and lift w eights? R. ANSWER: I have believed through my career that exercise is critical for maintaining good health, for preventing disease and even for treating some medical conditions. The medical literature increasingly supports this view. So I am delighted to hear that you have found a kind of exercise that you can do without pain and that, most importantly, you are doing. Any (safe) exercise is better than no exercise, from the standpoint of y our heart and overall health. You often will hear the advice at least 20 minutes a day of moderate exercise, at least three times per week, which is well enough, but that amount isnt possible for some people, especially when starting out, and is less than the optimal amount for most people. I think you will nd that the bicycling exercise will make it easier to walk. W alking puts a bit more stress on your bones as w ell as your joints, but that stress translates into more strength and less risk of osteoporosis. The more you walk, the more you will be able to walk. Different exercises have different benets, so changing things up may have more benet. If you try walking and lifting weights, you may be surprised how easy it is after a few times and how much better you feel. DEAR DR. ROACH: I have recently been hearing from friends that they are spending $400 per month or more on supplements and that a local practitioner is selling lots of pills to them each month. He is also strongly discouraging traditional medicines, and he sends them cards in the mail suggesting that a visit to his ofce is overdue. All the pill bottles have a statement that says, This product does not diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. My friends are avid health-conscious people who exercise every day and are trim and eat healthy foods. Is taking all these supplements a good idea? What advice can you give? A.F. ANSWER: I am busily writing a pamphlet that I hope will help answer this question. My short answer is that for most people, only a few (if any) supplements are of ANY benet (these might include vitamin D). A recent scientic article, using DNA evidence to look at actual contents of pills, found that many of the supplements sold arent what they are supposed to be. I feel that some supplements can be benecial, but many or even most are at best a placebo, often a waste of money and at worst actively harmful to health. DEAR DR. ROACH: My question involves knowing that poppyseed consumption can result in urine testing positive for drugs in your body. Right now, there is a health movement that is suggesting that hemp seeds contain good protein and healthy fats and should be part of an anti-inammatory diet. Woul d consumption of hemp seeds also result in the same situation, with positive drug-test results? Anon. ANSWER: Hemp seeds indeed contain high-quality protein and healthy fats, and may help reduce inammation. Based on manufacturers information as well as a scientic study, the likelihood of having a positive drug test for marijuana is very small. Dr. Roach regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but will incorporate them in the column whenever possible.

What a waste! I immediately thought of your helpful-hints articles. Do you have hints for reusing used wrapping paper or what we can do to recycle gift-wrapping paper? Steve T. in Ohio Of course I do, and Im glad you asked. Most good wrapping paper can be reused for wrapping smaller gifts or cut up and used as paper/ribbons. Use paper to line drawers or as shelf lining in a seldom-used china cabinet. Cut out uniform squares, staple on one corner, turn over and use for a notepad. Put through a shredder and use the colorful paper as stufng for packages. HeloiseT wisted sheetsDear Readers: A recent column about sheets getting twisted in the washing machine generated a lot of responses. He re are just a few hints about how to keep sheets from twisting: Tom in Colorado wrote: After spending many minutes pulling sheets apart, I got disgusted once and just pitched them into the dryer twisted. Lo and behold, with the tumbling action of the dryer, they came apart and dried in the normal time. Dory in Arkansas wrote, Fold them into quarter sections before putting them in the washing machine, and again when putting into the dryer. Marcie in Texas wrote: D ont put sheets around the center post of the washing machine. Push them down in a wad on one side (contour on one and plain on the other), and they wont wad up.Christmas stockingsDear Heloise: I found a wonderful way to make childrens Christmas stockings memorable year after year. Our chil dren have r eceived ribbons and church, academic and sports awards. I attach them to their Christmas stockings. They can proudly show off their accomplishments each year. This tradition is carried on with our grandchildren, and has created a sense of pride and re membrance of special times in our family.

HOROSCOPE DEAR ABBY: My mother-in-law sent my 7-yearold son a gift and a card for his birthday. They arrived about a week early. A few days before his birthday, she called and asked if he had received them. He said he had, but before he could explain that he hadnt opened them, she started talking about the gift inside, revealing the surprise. I have now heard shes upset with me and my son for this awkward moment. S he says that from now on she would like a phone call when her cards or gifts arrive, so she can hear his enjoyment over the phone even if they arrive early. I dont think my son did anything wrong. When a gift arrives in adv ance of an occasion, must it be opened immediately? Or can it wait for the actual birthday or Christmas? S ometimes he likes to open one present at a time, write a thank-you note, then open the next, stretching out his gift-opening over a few days. Is this a social no-no? WONDERING IN W ASHINGTON DEAR WONDERING: G ifts are usually opened the day of the occasion. When the occasion is a birthday, the usual expectation is that the presents will be opened at the party. At that time a verbal thank-you is offered. A thank-you note should be written a very short time later. Y our mother-in-law may have called for reassurance that her gift had arrived. S he should not have re vealed what it was. You did nothing wrong. The mistake was hers. DEAR ABBY: My good friend Derek is in his 30s and just started his rst ser ious relationship. He told me after a week together that she was The One and that he loved her. I told him I was happy for him and suggested he take things slow so they could really get to know each other. I had a party two nights ago where he introduced his new girlfriend. They spent most of the time making out like teenagers in front of everyone. Some guests were so uncomfortable they left early. I havent seen Derek since, and Im worried not only that hes moving too fast. Im not sure how to express my concerns to my friend without hurting him. CONCERNED IN CALIFORNIA DEAR CONCERNED: It would not be rude or hurtful for you to mention to Derek that you think the girl is great but the show they put on at your party made some of your other guests so uncomfortable they left early. Lets hope the hint is sufcient. DEAR ABBY: My 10-year-old daughter told a friend she would go to a concert with her a few months ago. Since then, my daughter decided to end the friendship because the girl was clingy, dramatic and controlling. Do I insist my daughter go to the concert as she said she would, or let her off the hook? The friend seems to be hoping she will go so they can renew the friendship, but my daughter has no plans to do it. P lease help! MANAGING DISCORD IN MINNESOTA DEAR MOM: If th e girl is expecting your daughter to go to the concert with her, your daughter should tell her she does NOT plan to attend so the girl can invite someone else. Do not insist that your daughter associate with anyone who makes her feel uncomfortable. Her reason for pulling back from that relationship showed good judgment. A nd that repentance and remission sins should be preached in His name among all nations, beginning at J erusalem. Luke 24:47 The Bible not only gives us the message but in whose name it is to be delivered. By pass this plain directive of the Savior and we really have nothing to say. Pause now and breathe that mighty name in prayer and praise.
