Many families got together this week to celebrate Christmas. They broke bread, sliced ham and served pies. The Cwikowski family enjoys meals together every day. Breakfasts and lunches, to be exact. All my family works here, said John Cwikowski, owner of John Skis House of Breakfast and Lunch in Punta Gorda. Wife Glenna is the head cook. Oldest son Timothy, 22, is a food prep and dish washer. Middle son Richard, 20, is a cook. Youngest son John Jr., 19, works as a host on weekends while studying to be a music teacher at Florida Gulf Coast University. The Cwikowski family will be celebrating the two-year anniversary of John Skis House of Breakfast and Lunch early next year. After 15 years working as a general manager for Bob Evans (10 of those in Charlotte County), John wanted to open his own restaurant. He found a historic 1927 building in Punta Gorda and opened on Feb. 14, 2012. I needed to see if I could do it on my own, he said. The building on King Street originally served as Cernys Garage and Machine Shop. John designed the interior to pur posely include a kitchen that is visible to customers. I want people to see weve got a clean kitchen, John said. We have nothing to hide. John Skis menu is quite diverse, offering both breakfast and lunch foods throughout the day. He combines his Mid-Atlantic upbringing with what he has learned working in Florida to bring a lot of crab dishes to the menu. Daily specials also are offered to allow his staff to be creative in the kitchen. If the customers like the specials, they may be added to the menu, which John updates about every six months. Those who are interested in a food challenge can consider participat ing in John Skis Belly Buster Challenge. Contestants have 45 minutes to eat three Fat Boys Breakfast Delight: A plate full of our country potatoes topped with a sausage patty, three eggs cooked any style, three strips of bacon, all smothered in Big Daddys sausage gravy and topped with a handful of shredded cheese. Seven have tried, Ski said. Nobodys nished it. I wouldnt even attempt it. Those who arent inclined to try the challenge can order anything on the menu, and things off the menu too. You can customize anything you want, said Michelle Hager, who worked for John at Bob Evans before joining him at John Skis. John picks employees like Michelle, who support his customer service values. I like customers to feel like part of the family, he said. John plans to open a second restaurant in North Fort Myers or North Port within a year or two. Until then, you can nd the family in the Punta Gorda restaurant cheering for different NFL teams. Thats right, somehow they all support different NFL teams (and none of them are Florida teams). John likes his Detroit Lions (maybe not after last weekend) while the rest of his family members support the Washington Redskins, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints or Carolina Panthers. Its a rivalry every Sunday in our house, he said. Christy Feinberg is a senior writer/columnist for the Sun. Email her at cfeinberg@ Skis: Family business SOUTH OF PUNTA GORDA A local man who ofcials say housed about 80 animals on his unkempt property now faces 27 animal cruelty charges. Pablo Cauz, 50 wanted in Charlotte County for 12 counts of animal cruelty, 12 counts of animal abandonment and three counts of animal torturing was arrested Dec. 14 in Miami. He was extradited to Charlotte County on Christmas Day, Wednesday. Charlotte County Animal Control had been investigating Cauzs prop erty on the 32600 block of Oil Well Road since April, after a suffering dog which eventually died was found in a nearby Dumpster. Neighbors reportedly identied the dog as Cauzs. Authorities were able to obtain and execute a search warrant for the property shortly thereafter. Ofcials found dogs, pigs, goats, roosters, cows, a horse and dozens of free-ranging chickens living in unsafe conditions among garbage and construction materials. It was one of the more difcult cases Ive had to do, said Animal Control ofcer Reannon Juergensen, who has been with the department for almost 11 years. Authorities also found on the property two baby alligators and a marijuana grow house containing 87 plants, weighing 10.4 pounds. Cauz was arrested in April and found guilty 27 animal charges leviedBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITEROfficials: Man mistreated dogs, goats, pigsANIMAL | 4 SUN PHOTO BY BRENDA BARBOSAMarilyn Smithson of San Antonio, Texas, enjoys a warm afternoon with her 7-year-old grandaughter Sydney Sanford, Thursday at Laishley Marina in Punta Gorda. Smithsons daughter lives in Fort Myers and has been telling her mom to move closer to her. She thinks Punta Gorda might be a good place to retire.PUNTA GORDA On a warm and cloudy Thursday afternoon, Marilyn Smithson of Texas strolls through Laishley Marina admiring the scenery. Its the retirees rst time in the city and, judging by the look on her face, shes impressed. Smithsons daughter, a resident of Fort Myers, has been elbowing her mom to move closer to her. Punta Gorda, Smithson says, seems like a place shed denitely consider. This has got possibilities for sure, she says. And she isnt the only one who thinks so. Where to Retire magazine, with a national circulation of 200,000, featured Punta Gorda as a top retirement destination on the cover of its January/ February 2014 issue. The magazine hit newsstands last week. Where to Retire Managing Editor Annette Fuller, in a prepared statement, said Punta Gorda offers the kind of amenities important to todays retirees. Those who have always wanted a boat docked in their backyard will nd Punta Gorda is their dream come true, she said. Charlotte Harbor, one of the nations largest, intersects with the Peace River, creating the ideal setting for shing and sailing.

But the problem extended beyond trafc delays. On the Manasota Key side, Ray Ray DuBois, owner of Ray Rays Home Repair, was irritated because the outages were getting in the way of his business. Ive got people with leaky faucets, sinks that wont work, doors that wont open and they need them repaired now, not later, DuBois said. The Tom Adams Bridge started experiencing problems Dec. 14 due to a broken part. Authorities had located and replaced the part by Dec. 17, but the bridge has had its ups and down since then. On both Wednesday and Thursday the bridge malfunctioned, stopping trafc to and from the key on Beach Road.

Featured EventPAID ADVERTISEMENT Merry Christmas, everyone. I hope you enjoyed your morning gathered around the tree with your family and friends. In my home, we always opened our gifts on Christmas Eve. We children were put to bed and, after falling asleep (like that was easy), Santa snuck in to put up the tree and leave gifts. After he left, we were awakened to the splendor awaiting us in the living room. We opened our gifts and then went back to bed (again, not easy). Actually, I always thought it was my parents way of getting to sleep in on Christmas morning. When grandchildren started arriving, we no longer put them to sleep, but continue to open gifts on Christmas Eve. Though the holidays are here, things are still bubbling in the cultural community. The fourth annual Charlotte County Amateur Photography Contest, sponsored by the Charlotte County Library System and the Arts & Humanities Council, has been announced. The photos should celebrate our community. All ages are invited to participate. Entries must be received by Jan. 27, and all will be displayed in the Mid-County Regional Library during February. There are cash prizes for each of three age groups. For the full rules and an entry form, call the library at 941-613-3160, the Arts & Humanities Council at 941-764-8100, or go to the Library pages at www.CharlotteCountyFL. gov. I hope to see you at the Awards Reception on Jan. 30. I think Lemon Bay Playhouse got an early gift. I had planned to write about The Gin Game in next weeks column. Veteran actors Rita Corn and Jack Rabito volunteered to produce and perform the play with the entire proceeds from two performances going to the campaign to pay off the Playhouse Annex mortgage. Well, the shows are almost sold out, so Rita and Jack have offered to do another performance at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 17. Tickets are $18 and are available by visiting or calling the box ofce at 941-475-6756, or online at www.lemonbay So dont wait to reserve seats. If you have family visiting over the holiday, I suggest you take them to visit our wonderful galleries lled with the works of local artists. Until Jan. 9, Sea Grape Gallery will feature Cheryl McClure, photographer, and Lois Porter, ber and paper weaver and metal enamel artist, as its Artists of the Month. McClure enjoys the abundant wildlife of our area, which is evident by her wonderful photographs of egrets and their chicks, our popular Punta Gorda eagles, and the local flora and fauna. She prints all her photographs on professional archival photo paper using archival inks or on canvas. Porter has loved the art of painting for many years. But when she inherited her mothers loom, a new art passion came into her life the art of weaving. She weaves her works in both fiber and paper. Her woven scarves are a work of art, rich in texture and color that enhance any wardrobe. Both McClures and Porters works are prominently on display at Sea Grape Gallery. In addition, more of their art and the art works of all Sea Grape artists can be viewed at www. Judy A. Malbuisson is the executive director of the Arts & Humanities Council of Charlotte County. She can be contacted at 941-764-8100 or Visit the councils website at www.charlotte Friend us at charlottearts.Holidays ringing with cultural events Charlotte ArtsJudy Malbuisson We are coming to the close of 2013, so here are a few tips for donating to your favor ite charity, while taking advantage of an itemized tax deduction and helping out a qualied 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Tips for clothing and household items: To be deductible, clothing and household items donated to a charity generally must be in good condition or better. Household items include furniture, furnishings, electronics, appliances and linens. For all donated items, you should get from that charity, if possible, a receipt that includes the name of the charity, date of the contribution, and a reasonably detailed description of the donated property. If a donation is left at a charitys unattended drop site, you should keep a written record of the donation, as well as the fair market value of the property at the time of the donation and the method used to deter mine that value. Tips for monetary donations: To deduct any charitable donation of money, regardless of the amount, you should provide a bank record or a written communication from the charity showing the name of the charity and the date and amount of the contribution. Your records should include canceled checks, bank or credit union statements, and credit card statements. Please note that the bank or credit union statements should show the name of the charity, the date, and the amount paid. Credit card statements should show the name of the charity, and the date the donation occurred. Please keep this in mind charitable contributions are deductible in the year made. Thus, donations charged to a credit card before the end of 2013 count for 2013. This is true even if the credit card bill isnt paid until 2014. Also, checks count for 2013 as long as they are mailed in 2013. The current standing rule is an individual is required to obtain an acknowledgment from a charity for each deductible donation (either money or property) of $250 or more. An item that is valued at $500 and up should also have an attached qualied appraisal of the item when ling a tax return. As always, to take advantage of a tax deduction it is important to keep good records and receipts. The Cultural Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprot organization that does not receive any operational funds from the government. By providing us with any sort of donation, such as those listed above, you will not only be able to enjoy a tax deduction, but you will be contributing to the cultural health and well-being of our community. The center offers an array of multigenerational activities to suit the needs of our residents, but we cant continue to do so without your help. Please consider donating to the center before the close of 2013 or resolve to make us your donation destination in 2014.

Weve been looking at this address for a couple of years, said Lt. Brian Jones, Animal Control division manager. Theres been suspicious activity out there with an interchange of animals. Jones said neighbors had been calling in say ing they heard animals screaming, and they believed the animals were in pain. But its a very desolate area, Jones said. Every time we would go out there, we never had enough evidence to get a warrant to get past the gate. And we never saw anything from the fence line to support the allegations. When authorities nally were able to search the property, they quarantined it and seized the animals nearly 90 of them which either were euthanized or were treated and relocated. Cauz specically has been charged in connection with the torturing of three dogs a pit bull mix, a retriever mix and a Dalmatian and for allegedly abusing and abandoning six piglets and six goats. Juergensen said the three dogs had to be put down humanely because they had endured so much physical abuse. One of the piglets was found dead on the property, and three of the goats later died. The goats were emaciated, and had upper-respiratory infections and bottle jaw, according to Juergensen. She said the pigs were a mess. They were underweight, full of lice, suffered from swine pox, and were thought to have had pseudorabies a rabies-like viral disease that affects swine which is why the property was quar antined and the animals kept there. Although authorities didnt have enough evidence to charge Cauz with cockfighting, they believe he may have taken part in the illegal sport. Juergensen said there were six roosters individually housed. Their combs and wattles had been removed, and they had been plucked except for their heads, wings and tails. Juergensen also said she found stakes in the ground with ropes attached to them. Neighbors told her they sometimes saw the roosters tied to them. It was very suspicious, Jones said. He also pointed out cockfighting is popular in Cuba, where Cauz is from. The things we could prove and the things we suspect are really two different things, Jones said. But we think there were a lot of atrocities at that property. Cauz was held at the Charlotte County Jail Thursday without bond. His first appearance is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. today at the Charlotte County Justice Center in Punta Gorda.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comANIMALFROM PAGE 1 PHOTOS PROVIDED BY CHARLOTTE COUNTY ANIMAL CONTROLPablo Cauz, 50, was arrested in Miami earlier this month and extradited to Charlotte County on Christmas Day, Wednesday. He faces 27 animal cruelty charges for allegedly housing pigs, goats and dogs along with other animals on his unkempt property south of Punta Gorda, as seen here. Ocials say this property o Oil Well Road, south of Punta Gorda, was covered in garbage and construction materials. It is also where they say Pablo Cauz, 50, kept more than 80 animals. Cauz faces 27 animal cruelty charges after authorities searched the property in April and found injured and sick dogs, pigs and goats, most of which were in such bad condition they died or had to be put down. Cauz was arrested earlier this month in Miami, and was extradited to Charlotte County on Christmas Day.outdoor lifestyle continues with waterfront parks, 18 miles of bike paths and weekend events. Added bonuses include free parking downtown, free boat launches, and a free loaner bike program. The magazine, said public relations director Lindsay Lindquist, looks at each community selected and assesses its merits independent of a set list of criteria. However each town is required to have a variety of housing options available, as well as cultural and other recreational opportunities. We have a good feel for which cities are a good fit for retirees, she said. The magazine chose Fort Myers-based freelance writer Kathryn Straach to write the ar ticle. She was introduced to the area in October 2011 during a group media trip, also known as a familiarization trip, to which the Charlotte Harbor Visitor & Convention Bureau played host. The trip, which was funded by a state grant from Visit Florida, took journalists on a four-day tour through Charlotte County. For the January/February Punta Gorda article, the bureau coordinated Straachs visit in August 2013, said Lorah Steiner, director of the Charlotte Harbor Visitor & Convention Bureau. We are delighted Where to Retire elected to feature Punta Gorda, Steiner said. The secret about this beautiful city is out. But, truth be told, Punta Gorda being a favorite spot among retirees is no secret. In the summer of 1997, Money magazine ranked Punta Gorda the second-best small place to live in the nation. The following year, the city made its debut on the pages of Where to Retire. Since then, the city has received numerous accolades. Every year, we seem to get one or two publications that notice what has happened here, City Manager Howard Kunik said. Still, being on the cover of a national glossy definitely helps with exposure. According to Steiner, the advertising equivalent of the six-page article complete with quotes from Punta Gorda residents about why they chose to retire in the city, statistics about the destination, and color photography is estimated to be worth more than $70,000. Thats a lot of exposure with no cost to city residents. It is always a boost to have national coverage of this type, Mayor Rachel Keesling said. Keesling recently met with a group of Canadian journalists, who took a canal cruise through Punta Gorda Isles to see holiday lights. They later stopped at Fishermens Village for dessert. It was a lovely evening, she said. The journalists were genuinely excited about experiencing the holidays in Punta Gorda.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comRETIREMENTFROM PAGE 1 Please mail Charloe County Homeless Coalition P O Box 380157 Murdock, FL 33938941-627-4313 ext.

Please send emails to NORTH PORT The Florida Department of Transportation has adjusted the time frame in which it is planning to complete work on the Ponce De Leon Boulevard overpass on Interstate 75 that was struck by a dump truck last week, causing signicant damage to a support beam. The FDOT previously announced that southbound lanes of I-75, near mile marker 184, would be closed from River Road to Sumter Boulevard from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. today, then again from 8 p.m. today until 7 a.m. Saturday, to complete the work. According to FDOT spokesman Dave Parks, the new time frame for the closures was 11 p.m. Thursday to 4 a.m. today, and again from 11 p.m. today to 4 a.m. Saturday. The Ponce De Leon bridge is still scheduled to open to local trafc on Saturday, Parks said Thursday afternoon, and the reduction in interstate closure hours is due to crews being able to do much of the work while the southbound lanes are still open. When the nine-mile stretch is closed, southbound I-75 trafc will be detoured off River Road onto U.S. 41 through North Port to Sumter, Parks added. Were trying to inconvenience the public as little as possible, Parks said. The overpass has been shut down inter mittently since Dec. 18, after North Miami man Bonnie Ramsingh, 56, reportedly struck it around 2:30 a.m. in a dump truck he was driving with the bed left upright, and ed the scene. The southbound lanes of the interstate were closed from River Road to Sumter for 13 hours following the crash.

But since were heading south, thats a halfhour out of our way, Matthews said. Around 11:40 a.m., ofcials were able to open and close the bridge, and car trafc was allowed to cross soon after. Some drivers, unfor tunately, seem to have made the wrong call over whether to wait or re-route, driving away just minutes before the bridge was operating again. Charlotte County Public Works Director Alan Holbach said the foreman repairing the bridge Thursday estimated the outage to have been about an hour and a half. As to the cause of the bridges failure, Holbach said a faulty sensor was responsible for Thursdays malfunction. The sensor the part that was replaced Dec. 17 caused the bridges hydraulic pump to overheat, which tripped the circuit breaker and shut the bridge down. On the bright side, if something similar again happens, we know what to look for, Holbach said. According to Holbach, the county plans to bring in a contractor who can check the settings for the sensor. Keith Adams of Venice, who watched the bridge from his shing spot on the pier on Redsh Cove, worried about what would happen if there were a medical emer gency on the key and the bridge was down. Honestly, I hope to God theyve got a landing pad on the other side for (emergency ights), Adams said, so someone in need of medical attention could get to the hospital quickly for treatment. Charlotte County spokeswoman Elaine Jones said in a situation when the bridge is down the county would be able to respond to medical emergencies. According to Jones, there are several areas on the key police could cordon off for a landing. When the bridge is malfunctioning, the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce puts vehicles on both sides of the bridge, so ofcials would be able to respond quickly if a landing spot was needed. Jones said for long bridge outages, the county issues alerts online at www.charlottecounty. gov/news.

In a busy expansion year with the latest additions of Portsmouth, N.H., near Boston, and Columbus, Ohio Allegiant Air now has nonstop service to 23 cities from the Punta Gorda Airport, including service to Long Island via Long Island MacArthur Airport that began Dec. 20. Allegiant announced it would double its workforce to about 100 employees at Punta Gorda Airport, primarily ight crews and mechanics. Two new airplanes also were added to the local eet, which breaks down to the standard of about 25 employees needed for each new airplane. This is our fastest-growing market, Jude Bricker, senior VP of planning for Allegiant, said this summer. It sells itself. Adding to the urry of activity was all the construction taking place at the airport. The car rental counters were relocated to a larger hangar just north of Bailey Terminal to make room for the Transportation Security Administrations expanded checkpoint and baggage screening area. The waiting room was increased to 280 seats, improvements were made to the shortterm parking area, and a new, 240-space long-term parking lot was completed this month. As for adjoining airport property, authority ofcials agreed in November to modify the lease for the speedways new tenant, Three Palms Speedway of Punta Gorda. In March, former tenant Kevin Williams let the lease expire after a disagreement over the amount of rent. Before Williams left, however, airport ofcials say he caused severe damage to the speedway when he uprooted items he claimed were his. The fencing was stripped of its poles and the ag pole was uprooted. The electrical utility post was battered, and the electrical system was ripped out and needs to be replaced. The bleachers also were removed. Andy Haase, of Three Palms Speedway of Punta Gorda, son of the speedways new tenant, went before the board in November to ask for a waiver of the performance bond required in the lease. Under the terms of the current lease, the new tenant is required to post a performance bond equal to 12 monthly rent payments, or roughly $76,000. In addition, the new tenant is required to pay the last months rent and a security deposit equal to three months rent upfront. In exchange for waiving the performance bond requirement, the new tenant pledged to bring the facility up to code by purchasing and installing new aluminum grandstands that will seat some 4,000 spectators, installing a new catch fence, put in new wiring and add a fresh coat of paint, among other improvements. Finally, spectators will be pleased to see the U.S. Air Forces Thunderbirds back for the 34th annual Air Show in March at the airport.

The Sun /Friday, December 27, 2013 C Our Town Page 7 Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Editors note: The Sun is recapping its most compelling and talked about stories of 2013. Look for stories to follow each day, through Dec. 31. Charles Hill would not look at Hugh Brotherton. He stared straight ahead, even as Hugh at times talked directly to him. Hugh was telling both Hill and the court what kind of man his son, James, was before Hill shot and killed him in 2011, leaving his body on the side of the road in Sarasota following a failed robbery. It was comparable to a nal statement on the life of El Jobean resident James Brotherton, a moving and tear-lled screed from Hugh, who had mostly stayed silent during the two years following his sons death, instead choosing to let the legal proceedings play out while he patiently waited. James, 49, was a kind man, Hugh told the court. James protected others, he was an oak for his family, he was a hard worker and understood how to balance that work ethic with his responsibilities at home, Hugh said, often through tears. So, with Hill still staring straight ahead following Hughs speech Dec. 10 at the Sarasota County Justice Center, 12th Circuit Judge Donna Padar Berlin sentenced Hill to three consecutive life sentences. Hill, 33, did not react, a far cry from his utter disbelief when a jury found him guilty of the crimes after nearly nine hours of deliberation in October. Attorneys for Hill led a notice of appeal on Dec. 20, according to court records, so its possible the Brotherton family, which had featured 10 siblings Hugh Jr., the eldest, suffered a fatal stroke Nov. 21 could nd themselves back in a Sarasota courtroom. But for now, Hill is guilty of homicide, kidnapping and robbery in connection with James death on Nov. 21, 2011, during which he forced him at gunpoint to withdraw money from a Sarasota Bank of America ATM and later shot him in the back, dumping his body in front of the Gulf Gate Library. James had no money in his account at the time of his death. It was a tragic end for James, who was sleeping in his car when he was accosted by Hill. He lived in Charlotte County with his wife and two adopted children, but worked as a bus driver for the Sarasota County Area Transit system and was sleeping in his car to be closer to work. The trial played out over several weeks, as scheduling conicts forced an early jury selection, followed by a gap prior to the trial actually beginning. Attorneys for Hill mounted what they believed was a credible defense, including letting Hill himself take the stand in his own defense, and poking holes in the states key witness, Rick Roland, a friend and co-worker of Hills who was with him the night of the murder. But, assistant state attorneys created doubt in the jurys mind about Hills testimony, especially when they broadcast surveillance video from the ATM that showed a man that appeared to be Hill staring straight into the camera at one point. James brothers and sisters traveled from far and wide to be in Sarasota for the trial. And during jury deliberations they gathered around patriarch Hugh in the hallway outside of the courtroom. They told stories, they laughed, they waited as a family while the jury figured out Hills fate. There were no grand celebrations among the Brothertons when Hill was found guilty. Instead, they followed Hughs lead, who quietly ushered his family out of the courtroom, and said simply that justice had been served, and his son can now rest.

Donald Ray Anthony, 50, of the 500 block of Wood Street, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon following the incident, which took place around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday. According to the report, the victim showed up for a gathering at Anthonys home and they got into a small verbal argument for an unspecied reason. The incident escalated when Anthony retrieved a large knife from inside the home and came out to chase the victim around the yard with the weapon raised above his head, witnesses told authorities. Anthony was booked at the Charlotte County Jail, and was released Thursday after posting $10,000 bond. As a condition of his bond, Anthony is not allowed to contact the victim. The Charlotte County Sheriffs Office reported the following arrests: Jerry Raymer, 39, 3100 block of Key Lane, Port Charlotte. Charge: fugitive from justice. Bond: none.

Our Town Page 8 C The Sun /Friday, December 27, 2013 Lower speed limits neededEditor: I have seen rsthand the Sumter McDonalds left turn puzzle. Too bad. It is a nice clean establishment that deserves better treatment from the city engineers. Another situation I see daily is the trafc situation and speed limit on South Haberland Boulevard from its start at Hillsborough Boulevard to Price Boulevard. This section of road is two lanes, only partially sidewalked on one side, heavily built up with single-family homes, and has at least six school bus stopping points. It is posted 40 mph its entire length. When this road extends north it becomes Panacea Boulevard. Panacea is four lanes, divided like a freeway, with wide sidewalks on both sides. It has almost no homes its entire length. The speed limit on this roadway varies from 30 mph to 35 mph. South Haberland Boulevard is already wellknown as a local shortcut to the Murdock area. Now that the new $875,000 intersection improvements to Price Boulevard and Haberland Boulevard which include a muti-phase trafc signal are complete, Im sure that the residents on South Haberland Boulevard can expect more trafc steered their way. Way past time for the speed limit on South Haberland to, at least, mir ror the limits on Panacea. Thirty mph would be good. A lower enforced speed limit may encourage the use of the wide four-lane divided Toledo Blade Boulevard, which was designed to carry heavy traffic, as their alter nate route.John J. Simpson North Portthat the sole duty of a busi ness/orporation is to make a profit for its shareholders? How about protections for the business customers? Product safety, for example, or the purity of ingredients. May the corporation cavalierly pollute the communitys environment, endanger its neighboring residents, undermine their houses (at one time in Pennsylvania a mining company with mineral rights could lawfully mine up to within one foot of the surface of the land; if your property caved in, too bad), etc. How about misrepresentation of the facts or terms of sale? Or rights and protections for the companys employees? Clearly, incorporation cannot be the right to lie, cheat and steal so long as the shareholders make a profit. Today, do we see our largest corporations exhibiting social responsibility?Theodore L. Zawistowski Port CharlotteA corporations social purposeEditor: In Americas past when a petition was presented in a state for incorporation the group seeking legal status as a corporation was required to describe its social pur pose, how this entity would serve or benefit the community, in addition to conducting its business and making a profit for its shareholders. Apparently our forefathers understood that incorporation was a privilege and that the community had a reasonable expectation of some form of social responsibility from the petitioners in return for granting said privilege. Pure greed for profits was not seen as sufficient reason for granting incorporation. No doubt this was done rather perfunctorily. Nevertheless, it was there. Somehow, over the years such provisions disappeared. Are we better off thinking Cable company billing by mistakeEditor: In November, I paid my cable bill with a check. They cashed the check and then took it out electronically, making it a double billing. I never authorized an electronic payment. When I called, I was put on hold for almost two hours; my cellphone died and the problem was never resolved. This month I called the cable company and was assured this will not happen. I decid ed to go to electronic next month. I bet you can guess it. They double-charged me again as far as I am concerned. They stole money that was not theirs. Now I am still trying to get my money back. I am a disabled, low-income veteran. Cable company, where is my money?Mike Martins Port Charlottekilling, of bald and golden eagles at electricity producing wind farms. We know that we need wind energy as one of our important strategies to combat climate change and to make our country less dependent upon energy sources from abroad. But Audubon believes that we must carefully site and manage these energy producing facilities to reduce negative impacts to birds and other wildlife. This 30-year permit takes us in the wrong direction and locks us into a path that will result in more dead eagles. We are dismayed that the Department of Interior could sanction such needless killing of our national symbol, the bald eagle. On behalf of the over 500 members of the Peace River Audubon Society chapter of the National Audubon Society, I urge Department of Interior Secretary Jewell to reverse this decision and work with conservation groups and the wind industry to develop better solutions that promote wind energy yet safeguard our bald and golden eagle populations.Jim Knoy Port CharlottePermits allow killing of eaglesEditor: As the president of the Peace River Audubon Society, I was disappointed to learn of the U.S. Department of Interiors plan to allow for 30-year permits for the taking, or accidental Next time, make vote countEditor: Since the team-up of Commissioners Cook and DiFranco with Yates, this city is going in a backward direction. First was the Warm Mineral Springs debacle. A project that was moving forward until Cook and DiFranco got involved. Next was the adoption of Ordinance 2013-19. This one is not well-known to the people but greatly affects them and their wallets. Basically, homeowners were exempt in regards to having a 35 percent tree canopy on their lot. These great minds voted to eliminate our exemption, now as a result you are not permitted to cut a tree down on your own property without obtaining a permit. They also have the say whether you can or cant cut down that tree. Additionally, it states that you must maintain a 35 percent canopy on your property. If you have a unfriendly neighbor or activist report you, you will be ned and required to plant what is necessary to come up to code. This is in Section 45 of the ULDC. Helicopters falling from the sky. This is the reason that Cook and DiFranco want to eliminate Bayite. I read that there were approximately 90 of these ights in the course of a year. You do the math. Not much of an inconvenience to save a life. Next, the closing of the Farmers Market because of greed in permitting. The time to move forward will be at the election booth. Make your vote count. Richard Oliveri North PortHog-slaughtering plant coming next?Editor: I object strongly to the editorial of Dec. 20 supporting the zoning change in Englewood allowing 68 units on State Road 776 in a sixacre parcel. And, no, I dont live near there. The fact that the adjoining neighbors and other residents of Englewood overwhelmingly objected to having their area changed by the politicians up in Sarasota seems to be unimportant to them or the editor. Further, a real estate broker pointed out that this would dramatically compromise the neighborhood. The editors rationale that it brings more density is not what those neighbors and most of Englewood residents want; thats not why they moved here. Not more trafc? Hundred more entries and exits daily. That it worked in North Port tells us nothing; we didnt move to North Port. Then why did the commissioners vote for it? More taxes for them to take and spend. Note, none of them live in Englewood. I suspect this editor (as usual not named as we writers have to be) also wrote some years ago that there should be no zoning or building codes. I doubt if he lives here either. Why cant those who moved to Englewood because of its semi-suburban and in places rural nature be allowed to have our voices heard and desires met? With this kind of policy whats to stop them from allowing a hog-slaughtering plant, lead factory or 40-story condos from being built anywhere in town?

But Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Prummell and his staff want the inmates who leave their jail to be a better people. That goal means giving them opportunities to earn a GED, the equivalent of a high school diploma, and to participate in faith-based drug and alcohol programs that, hopefully, can put a person on the right track when their jail time is completed. Recently, 28 Charlotte County Jail inmates were recognized for graduating from these programs. The eight-week sessions tackle two problems that can often lead to inmates making a return visit to the jail. The first is designed to arm the inmates with an education to help them find jobs. The second and third programs offer faith-based counseling to help inmates escape the grip of drugs and alcohol. Inmates free of alcohol and drug dependency obviously have a better chance to find a job and be productive citizens, and less likely to be back behind bars. Jennifer Griffin, spokesper son for the Sheriffs Office, said no records are kept as to the number of times, if any, inmates are arrested again after serving their sentences and graduating from these programs. There is some evidence, including a study by Florida TaxWatch, that recidivism can drop by as much as 10 percent because of the inmates exposure to these programs. The recent ceremonies in Charlotte County were the first time the Sheriffs Office has recognized graduates from all three programs at the same time. Each graduate had his or her name announced and received a certificate similar to a high school graduation. In a recent Sun article, Rodney Shields, who earned his GED, talked about how important it was to him and his family. Finally my names in the paper and its not in the police beat, Shields said. Shields had already been released from jail but returned for the ceremony. He thanked his family for their support. His mother was among those who attended. Its been a long road, and we almost gave up several times, she said. Were very proud of him. Inmate after inmate spoke about how the programs would make a difference in their lives. One, who graduated from the drug treatment program, said he now wants to be accountable to himself and others. A female graduate said: Im 21 years old and Im here because of drugs. Taking it one day at a time and humbling myself by the divine grace of God I have a second chance. Sheriff Prummells message to the inmates at their graduation rings true. You took what could have been a bad situation and turned it into something good, the sheriff said. Now you have additional tools for your tool belt to help you on the outside. Kudos to Sheriff Prummell and his staff for wanting to give inmates a chance at a better life. 82013MM Corg/CMIDIig Features .; .SAkTALAUS ,:,, MAYBETIE BEARDS4Oul,D HAKEMN CLUE.QQ0c ~


The Sun /Friday, December 27, 2013 C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINT Politicians can be progressives, liber als, conservatives, Democrats or Republicans, and right-wingers. They just cant be dumb. The American people will never elect them to ofce. Lets look at it. For years, I used to blame politicians for our economic and social mess. That changed during the 1980s as a result of several lunches with Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C., which produced an epiphany of sorts. At the time, I had written several columns highly critical of farm subsidies and handouts. Helms agreed, saying something should be done. Then he asked me whether I could tell him how he could vote against them and remain a senator from North Carolina. He said that if he voted against them, North Carolinians would vote him out of ofce and replace him with somebody probably worse. My epiphany came when I asked myself whether it was reasonable to expect a politician to commit what he considered to be political suicide in a word, be dumb. The Ofce of Management and Budget calculates that more than 40 percent of federal spending is for entitlements for the elderly in the forms of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, housing and other assistance programs. Total entitlement spending comes to about 62 percent of federal spending. The Congressional Budget Ofce estimates that entitlement spending will consume all federal tax revenue by 2048. Only a dumb politician would argue that something must be done immediately about the main components of entitlement spending: Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Senior citizens indignantly would tell him that what theyre receiving are not entitlements. Its their money that Congress put aside for them. They would attack any politician who told them that the only way they get Social Security and Medicare money is through taxes levied on current workers. The smart politician would go along with these peoples vision that Social Security and Medicare are their money that the government was holding for them. The dumb politician, who is truthful about Social Security and Medicare and their devastating impact on our nations future, would be run out of ofce. Social Security and Medicare are by no means the only sources of unsustainable congressional spending. There are billions upon billions in handouts going to farmers, corporations, poor people and thousands of federal programs that have no constitutional basis whatsoever. But a smart politician reasons that if Congress enables one group of Americans to live at the expense of another American, then in fairness, what possible argument can be made for not giving that same right to other groups of Americans? Making a constitutional and moral argument against the growth of handouts would qualify as dumb. Lets examine some statements of past Americans whom weve mistakenly called great but would be deemed both heartless and dumb if they were around today. In 1794, James Madison, the father of our Constitution, irate over a $15,000 congressional appropriation to assist some French refugees, said, I cannot undertake to lay my nger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents. He added, Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government. In 1854, President Franklin Pierce vetoed a bill intended to help the mentally ill, saying, I cannot nd any authority in the Constitution for public charity and to approve such spending would be contrary to the letter and the spirit of the Constitution and subversive to the whole theory upon which the Union of these States is founded. Grover Cleveland vetoed hundreds of congressional spending bills during his two terms as president in the late 1800s. His often stated veto message was, I can nd no warrant for such an appropriation in the Constitution. If these men were around today, making similar statements, Americans would hold them in contempt and disqualify them from ofce. Thats a sad commentary on how weve trashed our Constitution. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University. To nd out more about Walter E. Williams and read features by other Creators Syndicate writers and cartoonists, visit the Creators Syndicate website at www.creators. com.Dumb politicians wont get elected Walter Williams Sometimes it seems like things are upside down. Barack Obama and his Obamacare administrators are continually making laws, through blogpost (suspending the employer mandate) and bulletin (suspending the individual mandate). This, even though the Framers of the Constitution said that it was Congress that would make the laws; the president is just supposed to faithfully execute them. Meanwhile, members of Congress are, on one issue, moving to make foreign policy something that for more than a century has been largely left to presidents. This became apparent last week when 26 senators, 13 Democrats and 13 Republicans, co-sponsored a bill to increase sanctions on Iran. This is not a new idea. The House voted to increase sanctions last July. And it was sanctions, and the threat of increased sanctions, that surely drove Irans leaders to the negotiating table where they hammered out an interim agreement with Secretary of State John Kerry in Geneva in November. That agreement, however, left members of Congress of both parties and the public dissatised. For the rst time the U.S. recognized, tacitly, Irans right to continue possessing the centrifuges used to enrich uranium up to the levels needed to produce a nuclear bomb. It does not take much time or effort to increase the level of enrichment from current to bombready levels. The agreement leaves a nal agreement to be negotiated in six months. But that six-month period only begins when some still unsettled issues are agreed on. So Iran has more than six months, as things currently stand, to advance its nuclear program during which time sanctions will be softened and economic pressure on the mullah regime will be reduced. The public, which tended to give Barack Obama and his foreign policy positive marks during his rst term, has tended to oppose Kerrys Iran agreement, polls show. Evidently many ordinary citizens who dont follow issues closely share the fear of many well-informed members of Congress that the United States is giving up too much and gaining too little. The sponsors of the Senate sanctions legislation include leading Democrats, like Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Menendez and New Yorks Charles Schumer, who has been something of a consigliere for Majority Leader Harry Reid. Six of the 13 Democratic co-sponsors are up for reelection in 2014, as are four of the 13 Republicans (another Republican is retiring). The top Republican is Illinoiss Mark Kirk, a consistent leader on the issue. He is joined with John McCain, Lindsay Graham and Kelly Ayotte, who work together on many foreign policy issues, and prominent freshmen Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. The Senate bill would impose increased sanctions six months after the Geneva agreement goes into effect unless Iran agreed to certain specied conditions. Top House leaders, including Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce and ranking Democrat Elliot Engel, seem ready to pass similar or identical legislation. Backers argue that it would give administration negotiators leverage on Iran to gain agreement on objectives the president has often said he seeks. The administration doesnt agree. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said atly last week that the president would veto the bill. Administration lobbyists have been beseeching Democrats not to back it. Their arguments dont track with their stated objectives. They say they fear that Iran will walk out of negotiations if more sanctions are threatened. But tough sanctions are what brought them to the table. They say new sanctions could be passed later. But the Senate bill doesnt put them into effect until later. They argue that Iran wont ever agree to end uranium enrichment. But the whole point of sanctions is to get the mullah regime to do something it doesnt want to do. If getting to yes were the only objective, we might as well just accept a nuclear-armed Iran. Its not clear that the sanctions bill will ever get to the oor of the Senate. Even high-caliber sponsors such as Menendez and Schumer may be less persuasive with Harry Reid than calls from the White House. But it is clear that there are majorities solid bipartisan majorities in both houses for additional pressure on Iran and for insistence on a nal agreement that ends the threat of Iranian nukes rather than one that puts it off for another day. In this regard Congress seems to be reecting the will of the American people. Will the administration listen?

The one he issued two months ago is still reverberating. It expresses his dismay that although his vocation is the administration of justice, his function frequently is the iniction of injustice. The policy of mandatory minimum sentences for drug offenses has empowered the government to effectively nullify the constitutional right to a trial. As Lulzim Kupa learned. Born to Albanian immigrants, he was convicted in 1999 and 2007 of distributing marijuana. Released from prison in 2010, he again engaged in trafcking, this time with enough cocaine to earn him charges involving a sentence of 10 years to life. On March 5, 2013, prosecutors offered this: In exchange for a guilty plea, he would effectively be sentenced within the range of 110-137 months but the offer would expire the next day. Kupa rejected the offer, so on March 15 prosecutors led a prior felony information, aka an 851 notice, citing the two marijuana convictions. So, 10 days after saying a sentence of perhaps less than eight years (assuming good time credits) would be appropriate, prosecutors were threatening a sentence of life without parole. This gave him no incentive to plead guilty. Then, however, they immediately proposed another plea agreement involving about nine years imprisonment. Given a day to decide, he acted too slowly, so prosecutors again increased the recommended sentence. Finally, Kupa caved: I want to plead guilty, your Honor, before things get worse. If, after the 851 notice, he had insisted on a trial and been found guilty, he would have died in prison for a nonviolent drug offense. He is 37. Tyquan Midyett, a high-school dropout from a broken home and foster care, began using marijuana at 14. He was 26 when arrested for selling less than 4 ounces of crack. Because this was his second offense, the best he could do pleading guilty was a 10-year sentence. When he hesitated, the government gave him a date to agree or it would le an 851 notice, which would double the mandatory minimum to 20 years. He went to trial, was convicted and is serving 240 months for Sledgehammer justiceWILL | 10 George Will 50462532 STARTING AT $19,990!! 625-5056 1212 Enterprise Drive Port Charlotte, FL 33953 CONSTRUCTION RENOVATION POOL SERVICE & REPAIRS POOL SUPPLY STORE Lic./Insured Lic.#CPO56749 12 Readers Choice Awards!

Phil Robertson millionaire star of Duck Dynasty seems an unlikely antagonist as 2013 wraps up. As all sentient beings know by now, he was suspended from the wildly popular A&E program for comments he made about gays during a recent GQ interview. Suddenly our nation is consumed anew with impassioned debate about nearly every foundational principle freedom of speech, religious freedom, civil rights and same-sex marriage. The latter is relatively uncontroversial in some states and most urban areas, but not in rural America where hunters convene or among fundamentalist Christians, for whom bib lical literalism is a virtue and certainly not among millions of Duck Dynasty fans. Needless to say, these three groups overlap considerably. Robertson isnt just a megastar in waterfowl world, he is the composite character so loathed by liberals and certain elites who would nigh perish at the thought of close contact with his sort white, fundamentalist, Bible-thumping, duck-killing yahoo who somehow missed the civil rights movement, not to mention the New England Enlightenment. Distilled, Robertson said two things in particular that provoked protests outside the bay ou. One, that homosexual acts are sins, which is hardly news among recipients of the Gospel (hate the sin, love the sinner). Two, he said that African-Americans he worked with during the Jim Crow era were just ne. They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues, he said. Except, of course, many blacks were singing the blues and had been since about the 19th century when plantation slaves invented the genre while toiling in the Mississippi Delta not far from Robertsons haunts. Robertsons words released an onslaught of re and brimstone not seen since God unleashed his fury on Sodom. Speaking of which, it is tempting to note that God was rather selective in his outrage back then. Furious with homosexuals, he seemed to have no problem with Lot, whom he saved, when Lot offered his virgin daughters to townsmen who were demanding to know the angels hanging with Lot that God had sent to destroy Sodom. Similarly, sort of, Robertsons fans didnt seem to care much about the vile, X-rated imagery he used to make his point to GQ concerning the relative merits of human apertures for sexual gratication. Granted GQ is read mostly by old teenagers and young adults, but is this really the fellow Christians want instructing Americas camouaged kiddos? Robertsons blunt talk caused a stir not because he was delivering tablets from the burning bush but because he was clearly speaking outside his wheelhouse to the detriment of people whose equal rights even their very lives are endangered by such talk. Robertson may love the sinner, but you sure cant tell. Executives at A&E clearly were banking on hicks acting like hicks, not expressing what they actually think. But then, what did they expect from a Louisiana duckcall whittlin, part-time preacher, for Petes sake? Aw, shucks, the more love in the world the better is what I always say? To the greater point, the fact that a healthy if dwindling percentage of the country feels helplessly opposed to redening marriage reveals an existential divide that wont easily be bridged. Robertson didnt create it; he exposed it. He also helped illuminate our persistent confusion about gay rights. South Carolinas largest newspaper, The State, recently featured two stories back to back one dealing with Duck Dynasty fans protesting Robertsons indenite hiatus, the other about Methodists defrocking Frank Schaefer for performing his gay sons marriage. One is damned for being anti-gay marriage and the other for being pro both in the name of the same deity, presumably. So which is it? The Christian, as well as the constitutional, way seems to me the latter. But fundamentalism, regardless of religion, nds refuge in the toxic swamp of moral certitude. In other near cer tainties, Robertson reportedly will be back on the show when it returns in January. With shelves emptied of Duck Dynasty paraphernalia by loyal consumers, and A&E facing boycott threats, theres too much money at stake. Prot, not equal rights or freedom of religion or any of the other high-minded principles we seize to bolster our selective outrage, is the real coin of the realm. And, as if you didnt know, it quacks like a duck. Kathleen Parker is a columnist for the Orlando Sentinel. Readers may reach her at kathleen isnt so ducky is it? Kathleen Parker an offense that, without the escalating coercions aimed at a guilty plea, would have received a sentence of 46-57 months. In 2008, an 851 notice was led against Charles Doutre, based on two prior convictions for distribution of $50 worth of drugs and simple possession of drugs. The judge who was required to sentence him to life in prison said, Ive imposed a life sentence six times, and it was for a murder each time. Doutre is 32. Eleven years ago, Dennis Capps, 39, a methamphetamine addict, pleaded guilty to two instances of trafcking involving a quantity of drugs he could hold in his hand. He conquered his addiction for a long time, then relapsed, and in this year was convicted of another drug offense. Because he insisted on a trial, the government led an 851 notice. He was convicted, and is serving life without parole. Kenneth Harvey was 24 in 1989 when he committed a crack cocaine offense. He had two prior offenses that qualied as felony drug convictions even though they were not deemed serious enough for imprisonment. They, however, enabled the government to make an 851 ling. He will die in prison. Harvey is 48. Thousands of prisoners are serving life without parole for nonviolent crimes. Gleeson, who is neither naive nor sentimental (as a prosecutor, he sent mobster John Gotti to die in a supermax prison), knows that most defendants who plead guilty are guilty. He is, however, dismayed at the use of the threat of mandatory minimums as sledgehammers to extort guilty pleas, effectively vitiating the right to a trial. Ninetyseven percent of federal convictions are without trials, sparing the government the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Mere probable cause, and the meager presentation required for a grand jury indictment, sufces. Judging is removed, Gleeson says, prosecutors become sentencers. And when threats of draconian sentences compel guilty pleas, some innocent people will plead guilty. Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and Sens. Pat Leahy, D-Vt., and Rand Paul, R-Ky., are questioning the regime of mandatory minimum sentences, including recidivism enhancements, that began with the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986. Meanwhile, the human and nancial costs of mass incarceration mount. George Will is a columnist for The Washington Post.

Cant find it anywhere?Dont give up check the Classifieds! Now that the Christmas gifts are all unwrapped, what to do with the wrapping, boxes and other holiday trash? That may depend upon where you live. And what may be best for everyone is not to advertise with trash how good Santa has been. Both Charlotte County and the city of North Port recycle colored wrapping paper and bows. Sarasota County does not, deeming wrapping paper and bows as potentially toxic. All three jurisdictions recycle Christmas trees cleaned of tinsel, lights and other decorations. Trees larger than 5 feet tall should be cut in half. Large boxes should be attened. None of the three jurisdictions recycles Styrofoam or contaminated boxes, such as pizza boxes. Styrofoam should be thrown out with garbage waste. Unlike Sarasota County and North Port, Waste Management provided Charlotte County residents with large carts for the single-streaming of recyclables. With the disposal of holiday waste, the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce offers precautions on its blog at www. sarasotasheriff.blogspot. com. Lucky kids and adults receive laptops, HD TVs, gaming systems and other expensive electronic items, a post states. If you found one of these (expensive gifts) under the Christmas tree, remember that you shouldnt rush to dispose of the packaging too early. The Sarasota and Charlotte county sher iffs ofces both caution that boxes and other packaging placed on a curb for trash collection and recycling can advertise what valuables might be found in a residence to potential burglars. The SCSO advises that packaging should be placed out the night before garbage collection or, better still, on the day of garbage collection. CCSO Maj. Jim Kenville concurred, say ing the best strategy is to break down any boxes for big-ticket items, so as not to advertise that there is new stuff in the house, and not make a residence a target. Its a true concern, Kenville said. Looking at ve years of Sarasota County crime statistics for residential burglaries the month before and the month after the Christmas holiday, Cathy Duff with the sher iffs crime prevention ofce said, One year will be more, the next year it could be less. But Duff also said, Remind folks to watch out for their neighbor hoods, and if they see suspicious behavior, to please call the Sheriffs Ofce.

A month after President Barack Obama announced people could keep insurance policies slated for cancellation under the federal health overhaul, the reversal has gotten a mixed response from insurers, state regulators and consumers. Many consumers complained in October and November after insurers notied them that their individual policies were being canceled because they did not cover pre-existing conditions, hospitalization, prescription drugs or seven other basic benets required under the law. In pitching the overhaul, Obama had long promised that people who liked their policies could keep them. Then Obama announced Nov. 14 that companies could continue existing policies that dont meet the minimum requirements if state regulators approved. Reporting by The Associated Press shows that older policies are being allowed to continue in 36 states, either because ofcials allowed it after Obamas announcement, decided not to intervene in any way or had made a decision earlier in the year to extend non-compliant policies for a period of time.Some insurers wont continue policiesBy EMERY P.

Page 2 WIRE The Sun /Friday, December 27, 2013 STATE NEWS MIAMI BEACH (AP) Conventional wisdom has it that many restaurants never make it to their rst birthday, never mind their 100th. So its a little shocking just how many have done not only that, but have thrived well beyond 100 years. Fascination with what sets these culinary centenarians apart is what prompted Rick Browne to dig into American restaurant history, collecting the stories of some of the nations oldest eateries. These places are American culinary history, says Browne, who made it a mission to identify restaurants including taverns, grills, barbecue joints that are at least 100 years old. And his recent book, A Century of Restaurants: Stories and Recipes from 100 of Americas Most Historic and Successful Restaurants, includes the nations oldest (White Horse Tavern in Newport, Rhode Island, established in 1673), the youngest (the Pleasant Point Inn in Lovell, Maine, opened in 1911), and many in between. These old restaurants are serving really good meals, made from scratch, plus theyre preserving our culture, he says. And we cant lose that. Tallying restaurant centenarians is a tricky business. Browne counted any business that serves food such as taverns and came up with more than 250. In 2010, the National Restaurant Association and the Nations Restaurant News focused on eating establishments (rather than bars and taverns that serve food) and came up with 140. Further complicating Brownes search, several of the restaurants he found have changed their names over the years. Some have even changed locations after res, earthquakes or hurricanes damaged the original structures. But thats just part of the history that makes these businesses so fascinating. Whatever the exact count, the numbers are surprising in part because the restaurant industry has a notoriously short survival rate. More than a quarter of new restaurants close within the rst year, and that jumps to nearly two-thirds by the end of three years, according to research by the Cornell Hotel and Restaurant Administration. And most of that is due to typical industry pressures. Centenarian restaurants have buffeted not only that, but also The Great Depression and multiple recessions and wars. These older establishments have track record and history and heritage, said Grant Ross, general manager at The Black Bass Hotel in Lumberville, Pa. This building has been here for 270 years and people have been coming here to dine, stay and to drink for 270 years. And just because there is a recession that is not a reason to stop. Why do so many succeed? One often-repeated theme is family. A majority of the centenarian restaurants have been in one family for decades. Like Joes Stone Crab in Miami Beach, which was not featured in Brownes book but has been family-owned from the start when it opened as a mom-and-pop sh house. Today, its a muststop spot where wearing a bib over ne-dining attire is the norm. Has the fact that its family-owned been a benet to them? Yes, because people are nostalgic, says Bonnie Riggs, a restaurant analyst with consumer research rm NPD Group. Why do they succeed when the industry right now is not doing well? Because this place is unique. We know its pricey, but we are willing to pay for it because we know they will deliver on what we expect. And its an experience.Book profiles centenarian restaurants AP PHOTOIn this Oct. 22 photo, customers eat lunch in the main dining room at Joes Stone Crab restaurant in Miami Beach.

I realize now I was a homeless youth, Kerr, 28, said. Its a revelation he has come to accept as the outreach and community development coordinator at the Ybor Youth Clinic on Seventh Avenue in Ybor City, where he advises dozens of runaways and other homeless teenagers and young adults. If more people had more hands-on experience with the homeless, even spoke to a homeless person, they would have a better understanding of their living conditions, Kerr said. Kerrs advocacy for homeless young people, especially lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender teenagers, drew the attention of Tampa City Councilwoman Lisa Montelione, who came to know Kerr through his work with the TampaHillsborough Homeless Initiative. He really genuinely cares for those kids and works tirelessly to help them nd their path, Montelione said. He looks very young for his age. That may be why (they) relate to him. Kerr was 16 when his father kicked him out of their house in Colorado because he was gay, he said. Without a place to stay, he headed east to live with his mother in Connecticut and slept on a couch at her apartment until they found a larger place. But Kerr was deter mined not to be dened by adversity. He moved to Tampa in 2008 to attend Hillsborough Community College, then he was accepted a year later to attend the University of Tampa, where he graduated in 2011 with a bachelors degree in Government and World Affairs. Kerr was preparing for a life of humanitarian work in far-ung parts of the world. My desire was always to enter the Peace Corps and work abroad, Kerr said. Procient in Spanish, Kerr taught English at an area learning center and traveled to Africa on a monthlong goodwill mission, he said. But just before he com pleted the Peace Corps application, the unimaginable occurred. His mother lost her apartment in Connecticut and had no place to go. That got me interested in the homeless, Kerr said. Until then, I never understood how someone could become homeless, especially my mother. Though his mothers ordeal was temporary, that led Kerr to become a volunteer at the area homeless initiative organization, previously known as the Homeless Coalition. In August 2011, Kerrs volunteer efforts with the homeless organization led to a full-time job with AmeriCorps Vista in Tampa. He served as the homeless youth coordinator, working mainly with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youths at the TampaHillsborough Homeless Initiative headquarters, and helping to coordinate data collected for periodic homeless counts. That experience led to his current job at the Ybor Youth Clinic, 1315 E. Seventh Ave., Suite 104, in July 2012. The clinic, which is sponsored by the University of South Florida, offers medical assistance and counseling services to teens and young adults ages 13 to 24 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Anyone who walks in the clinic is very drawn by his personality, said Tasha Ratliff, one of Kerrs co-workers. He makes everybody feel comfortable.Homeless youth advocate has hands-on experience | STATE NEWS BRIEFSVietnam vet pulling plug on holiday light displayINVERNESS (AP) A disabled Vietnam war veteran and his wife will pull the plug on their large display of Christmas lights on Jan. 5 because they arent physically able to continue putting it together.

The Sun /Friday, December 27, 2013 WIRE Page 3 NATIONAL NEWS HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Hundreds of thousands of cards, letters, stuffed animals and childrens artwork from around the world ooded into Newtown in the days and weeks after the shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The town kept every thing. Some of it was preserved in its original form. Other items were documented in photos or turned into recycled material called sacred soil, which ofcials hope can be used in the foundation of a new school or to construct a permanent memorial for the 26 victims of the Dec. 14, 2012, shooting. Nothing was thrown into a landll, said Yolie Moreno, a resident who headed the archiving effort. Every single thing was saved: tags from teddy bears, paper snowakes, everything. Moreno took charge of the letters, cards and artwork. Tens of thousands were sorted by state and country of origin. A group of volunteers, many of them professional photojournalists, then photographed them to create a digital record. Norwalk-based Xerox Corp. is helping create a website where people will be able to view much of it. The towns library requested some of it for another website. About 5,000 pieces of correspondence will be stored there in a searchable form, Moreno said. We read through them and picked out a sampling of the most poignant, she said It was important to us that people know that what they sent in was read, was appreciated. About 30 boxes lled with handmade items also were kept and are in storage at the town municipal center. Ofcials hope it can be used in a future art installation in town, Moreno said. Many of the items are from children, such as a watercolor with the words You dont know how strong you are, until being STRONG is the only option you have, and another with a drawing of a bandaged heart and the words I know your heart is broken, because mine swells with grief for you. So I made this healed heart, knowing it could never replace the broken pieces of what you lost, but help lessen the pain, if only a little. The rest of it about 400 cubic yards worth of letters, votive candles, wreaths and teddy bears left in makeshift shrines all over Newtown was taken to a trash-to-energy plant in October in Bridgeport. Public works director Fred Hurley said all the material was treated with the utmost respect. The machines were cleaned, and plant operators made sure nothing from Newtown was mixed with anything else. The process of cremating the items was also lmed to ensure nothing was taken as a souvenir, he said. The material was incinerated, and the ash was cleaned out of the furnace and separated into a box for us, he said. Another cremation will be held in the spring, he said, as more material comes into town after the anniversary of the massacre. Plans call for mixing what is now about 2 cubic yards of sacred soil into construction materials, either bricks or cement that will be used perhaps in the foundation of a new Sandy Hook school or to help construct a permanent memorial to the massacre. No decisions have been made yet on a timeline for either of those.Cards, gifts sent to Newtown after rampage savedWASHINGTON (AP) Large number of Americans see 2013 as anything but a banner year and arent reluctant to wave goodbye on New Years Eve, a new APTimes Square poll says, reecting anxiety stretching from the corridors of power in Washington to corporate boardrooms, statehouses, and city and town halls. Although the poll shows that people generally are looking forward to the new year with optimism and no blatant sense of foreboding, it also unmasks pent-up worries about international crises and instability, and concerns at home about the standard of living, health care and schools. What the public thought of 2013:Good year or good riddance?On the whole, Americans rate their own experience in 2013 more positively than negatively, but when asked to assess the year for the United States or the world at large, things turn sour. All told, 32 percent say 2013 was a better year for them than 2012, while 20 percent say it was worse and 46 percent say the two years were really about the same. Young people were more apt to see improvement: 40 per cent of people under age 30 called 2013 a better year than 2012, compared with 25 percent of people age 65 or older. The public splits evenly on how the year turned out for the country, 25 percent saying it was better than 2012, 25 per cent saying it was worse. As with most questions about the state of affairs in the U.S. these days, theres a sharp partisan divide. Democrats are more apt to say the U.S. turned out better in 2013 than 2012 (37 percent) than are Republicans (17 percent). Thinking about the world at large, 30 percent say 2013 was worse than 2012, while just 20 percent say it was better. But the outlook for the new year is positive: 49 percent think their own fortunes will improve in 2014, 14 percent are anticipating the new year to be a downgrade from the old. Thirty-four per cent say they dont expect much to change.Wheres the party?Most Americans 54 percent say theyll be ringing in the new year at home, while 1 in 5 are heading to a friends or family members house. Only 8 percent say theyll go to a bar, restaurant or other organized event. Younger Americans are least apt to spend the holiday at home: 39 per cent of those under age 30 will celebrate at home, 33 percent at someone elses home, 13 percent at a bar or other venue. Regardless of their own time zone, nearly 6 in 10 say theyll watch at least some of the celebration from New York Citys Times Square.Countdown companionsWherever theyre spending the holiday, most Americans prefer the company of family. Asked with whom they want to be when the clock strikes midnight, 83 percent name a family member. On a holiday often sealed with a kiss, nearly 4 in 10 say they most want to be next to their spouse, and 13 percent cite a signicant other or romantic interest as a preferred companion. Parents like to be with their children, more than the children like to be with their parents. Less conventional choices: 2 percent cite their pets, 3 percent God, Jesus or their religious congregation, and less than 1 percent said they wanted to ring it in with their co-workers. Of course, some opt out altogether: 18 percent say theyre not planning to celebrate on New Years Eve, and 9 percent say theres no one with whom theyd like to party, preferring instead their pillow, TiVo or their own thoughts.Poll: Americans hopeful for a better year in 2014 | NATIONAL NEWS BRIEFSSnow slows Maine power work; Mich. effort ongoingGARDINER, Maine (AP) Snow fell Thursday in places still hustling to get power back on after a weekend ice storm that turned out the lights from Michigan to Maine and into Canada. Eastern Maine and parts of the states interior that have been without electricity since Sunday anticipated 3 to 7 inches of snow by the time the latest system pushed off the coast Thursday night. Utilities worried that the additional weight on branches and transmission lines could cause setbacks in the around-the-clock efforts to restore power. In Michigan, where about half a million homes and businesses lost power at the peak of the weekend storm, an inch or so of snow was expected. Utilities there reported 101,000 customers without power Thursday morning and said it could be Saturday before all electricity is restored. Maine reported more than 21,000 customers still out, down from a high of more than 106,000. There were more than 101,000 without power in three Canadian provinces Quebec, Ontario and New Brunswick including 54,000 in the city of Toronto.Utah holdouts now issuing gay marriage licensesSALT LAKE CITY (AP) The last of the Utah counties that were holding out on issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples reversed course Thursday and decided to hand out licenses to all eligible applicants. Ofcials for the four holdouts Box Elder, Utah, Piute and San Juan counties told The Associated Press they made the decision to offer licenses to same-sex couples. County clerks say they had little choice after an appeals court Tuesday declined to intervene and halt gay marriage. U.S. District Judge Robert Shelby ruled last week that Utahs ban on gay marriage was unconstitutional, sending gay couples rushing to clerk ofces for licenses. The state plans to take its ght against gay marriage to the U.S. Supreme Court as early as Friday while it prepares an appeal of Shelbys ruling to the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, said Ryan Bruckman, a spokesman for the Utah attorney generals ofce.Booty Call, Above the Rim director dies at 54HERMOSA BEACH, Calif.

Steve Knight, who voted against the law. Are there going to be 15-year-old girls talking in the bathroom and in walks a boy? What are they going to do? Scream? Run out? The California School Boards Association is acting on the assumption that the law will stand and that, even if it does not, existing state and federal anti-discrimination laws, as well as year-old California Interscholastic Federation rules under which athletes may petition to play on a sports team that does not correspond with their biological sex, already compel schools to accommodate transgender students. The association has advised schools to handle requests on a case-by-case basis and with parental input, if possible, but to be prepared to make private changing arrangements both for transgender students and for classmates who might object to dressing with them. We did strike a balance between the sensitivities associated with gender identity, not only for those students who experience a change in their gender status but the students who would be in the same facilities, in the same classrooms and on the same teams, General Counsel Keith Bray said. Parent Christy Musser said she plans to take two of her three school age children out of public schools in Southern California. Her oldest son will remain in the high school where he is a sophomore, but Musser said her eighth-grade daughter feels so uncomfortable about a transgender student coming into the restroom or locker room that she distributed yers about the referendum at school. At this time in their lives, these kids are young, innocent and are just learning about themselves and their bodies, and they dont need to worry about boys coming in the locker room and looking at them, or vice versa, she said. San Diego school board president, Kevin Beiser, said those fears are unfounded. In the absence of statewide guidance, schools have been dealing with this challenge in a very delicate, thoughtful and compassionate manner for many years, he said. This idea that schools will let a student walk into whatever bathroom they want is baloney, said Beiser, who works as a high school math teacher in a neighboring district.LAWFROM PAGE 1 Prosecutors vowed to oppose bail and to challenge the 43-page opinion. Because we will be appealing, the conviction still stands for now, and the defendant cannot be lawfully released until the end of the process, District Attorney Seth Williams said in a statement. His ofce contended at trial that Lynn reassigned known predators to new parishes in Philadelphia while he was the archdioceses secretary for clergy from 1992 to 2004. Lynns conviction stems from the case of one priest, Edward Avery, found to have abused a child in 1998 after such a transfer. Victims groups blasted the reversal. We know thousands of betrayed Catholics and wounded victims will be disheartened by this news, said David Cloches, director of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests. Lynns attorneys have long argued that the states child-endanger ment law at the time applied only to parents and caregivers, not supervisors like Lynn. Common Pleas Judge M. Teresa Sarmina had rejected their argument and sent the case to trial. Sarmina concluded that Lynn perhaps drafted a 1994 list of accused priests to try to address the clergy abuse problem. But when Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua had the list destroyed, Lynn chose to stick around and keep quiet, she said. A copy of the list was found years later in a safe and was repeatedly shown at trial. Sarmina, in sentencing Lynn in July 2012, had said the church administrator had enabled monsters in clerical garb ... to destroy the souls of children, rather than stand up to his bishop. Lynn told the judge: I did not intend any harm to come to (the boy). The fact is, my best was not good enough to stop that harm. Lynns supporters believe he was made a scapegoat for the churchs sins. Nonetheless, Bergstrom said his client hopes to return to ministry, and has enjoyed support of the current Philadelphia archbishop, Charles J. Chaput, who twice visited him in prison.CHURCHFROM PAGE 1 critical otherwise we could undermine public trust, said McDiarmid, a transplant specialist at the University of California, Los Angeles. The consent process for the life-saving organs should not, must not, be derailed by a consent process for a different kind of organ, that the public might think of as being very different from donating a kidney or a heart or a liver, she added. These so-called reconstructive transplants are experimental, and rare. The best estimates are that 27 hand transplants have been performed in the U.S. since 1999, and about seven partial or full face transplants since 2008, said Dr. Vijay Gorantla, medical director of the University of Pittsburgh reconstructive transplant program. But theyre gradually increasing as more U.S. hospitals offer the complex surgeries, the Defense Department funds research into the approach for wounded veterans and as transplant recipients go public to say how the surgeries have improved their lives. These hands are blessed hands to me, said Lindsay Aronson Ess, 30, of Richmond, Va., who received a double hand transplant in 2011. She had lost her hands and feet to a life-threatening infection in 2007. Until now, deciding who qualies for a hand or face transplant, and how to nd a match and approach a potential donors family all have been done on an infor mal, case-by-case basis. There has been no way to tell which hospitals techniques work best and how patients ultimately fare. There have been reports of two deaths related to face transplants in other countries, and some transplanted hands have had to be amputated. Patients must take lifelong anti-rejection medications that put them at risk of infections, cancer and other side effects. In July, government regulations go into effect making hand and face transplants subject to the same strict oversight by UNOS, which manages the U.S. transplant program, as heart or kidney transplants. Theyre part of a new denition of organ that also includes other body parts that doctors one day might transplant from feet to voice box es, maybe even the uterus. Unlike corneas, heart valves and other simpler tissues that are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration, these are all complex mixes of blood vessels, nerves, muscles and other tissues. The rules mean potential recipients will be added to the UNOS network, for matching of donated hands and face tissue that are the right tissue type and compatible for skin color, size, gender and age. Transplants and their outcomes will be tracked.HANDFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOThis photo taken Dec. 20 shows double hand transplant recipient Lindsay Aronson Ess working on her dexterity during a physical therapy session in Richmond, Va. Even so, insurers were given a choice of whether to continue the policies, and some declined to do so. In Kentucky, insur ers Humana, United Healthcare and Assurant chose to extend old policies while Anthem and Bluegrass Family Health opted against it. Seven companies in South Carolina are extending individual plans the federal law considers substandard, while six companies are extending plans in the small group market. Twenty are not participating. In North Carolina, only Blue Cross and Blue Shield, which controls about 80 percent of the states market for individual and small-business policies, offered to renew plans covering 474,000 people that had been slated for cancellation. North Carolinas insurance commissioner allowed the company to raise premiums by between 16 per cent and 24 percent. Prices on non-compliant policies are rising in other states, as well. Anthem Blue Cross in Maine plans to raise premiums by an average of 12 percent on its no-longer-canceled policies. The Blue Cross provider in neighboring New Hampshire expects an average 7 percent increase, an amount that is in line with previous years premium increases. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois said it would seek undened price changes. Raleigh attorney Jeff Poley, 42, says he is ne with paying more for his current policy, considering what it would have cost him to switch to a new one. He has been covered with a high-deductible health policy from Blue Cross for the past two years, which currently costs $137 a month. The plan does not cover maternity and some other benets required under the Affordable Care Act. When he initially received a cancellation notice, Blue Cross said the closest plan that met all of the new federal requirements would cost nearly twice as much. But after Obamas announcement, Blue Cross offered to extend Poleys old plan for another year at $170 a month. His wife is covered by a policy through her law rm. I was glad for the oneyear reprieve, but I would still like a permanent x because I dont need abor tion coverage, I dont need maternity coverage, said Poley, who said he exercis es vigorously about six days a week. We as a family had made that choice, and we are two intelligent people who know better whats good for our family than the government does.MIXEDFROM PAGE 1 (AP) Americans waited until the last minute to buy holiday gifts, but retailers werent prepared for the spike. Heavy spending in the nal days of the mostly lackluster season sent sales up 3.5 percent between Nov. 1 and Tuesday, according to MasterCard Advisors SpendingPulse, which tracks payments but doesnt give dollar gures. Online shopping led the uptick, with spending up 10 percent to $38.91 billion between Nov. 2 and Sunday, research rm comScore said. We always have last-minute Charlies, but this year even people who normally complete shopping earlier completed shopping later, said Marshal Cohen, chief retail analyst at market research rm NPD Group. The late surge caught companies off guard. UPS and FedEx failed to deliver some packages by Christmas due to a combination of poor weather and overloaded systems, leaving some unhappy holiday shoppers. Justin Londagin and his wife ordered their 7-year-old son a jersey of Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks from NFLs website on Dec. 19. They paid $12.95 extra for two-day shipping to get it to their Augusta, Kan., home before Christmas, but it didnt arrive in time. We had to get creative and wrote him a note from Santa to tell him that the jersey fell out of the sleigh and Santa will get it to him as soon as he could, he said. Amazon is offering customers with delayed shipments a refund on their shipping charges and $20 toward a future purchase. And other retailers such as Macys said they are looking into the situation. The last-minute surge this year solidies the increasing popularity of online shopping, which accounts for about 10 percent of sales during the last three months of the year. It also underscores the challenges that companies face delivering on the experience, particularly during the holiday shopping season that runs from the beginning of November through December. Analysts say FedEx and UPS typically work closely with big retailers to get a sense of the volume of packages theyll handle during peak times like the holiday season. Extra ights, trucks and seasonal workers can be added if the projections are large. But this year, David Vernon, a senior research analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein, said weather played a role. The early December ice storms in Dallas could have hurt operations, he said, and packages can start to accumulate. And that got compounded by a late surge in shipments, he said.Online shopping grows, with some growing pains AP FILE PHOTOIn this Dec. 2 photo, an employee stocks a shelf at an Fulllment Center on Cyber Monday. aaaaaQI 'a+I 00 fs[od140ti.oor


The Sun /Friday, December 27, 2013 WIRE Page 5 WORLD NEWS BANGUI, Central African Republic (AP) Assailants armed with heavy weapons attempted late Thursday to attack the presidential palace as well as the residence of the Central African Republics embattled leader, but were pushed back, ofcials said. Reached by telephone, Guy Simplice, spokesman for President Michel Djotodia, said there had been heavy ghting near the seat of government, before the army was able to block the aggressors. Although the attackers could not immediately be identied, for weeks there have been rumors that a Christian militia, believed to be backed by the president, who was ousted by Djotodia in a coup nine months ago, would attempt to seize back power. The heavy arms re could be heard from the ve-star Hotel Ledger, near the center of town, where international journalists are staying. A rocket came over the hotels wall, landing on the hotel grounds. As the shooting died down, helicopters could be heard ying overhead. The events are only the latest indicating that this deeply poor, but until recently relatively stable nation, is tipping into anarchy. Earlier Thursday, international forces were sent to pick up truckloads of decomposing bodies of slain Muslims, whose remains had been left at a local mosque by their friends and relatives, who were too frightened to be seen burying them in a city where Christianon-Muslim and Muslimon-Christian attacks have become a daily occurrence. It also comes a day after the African Union lost six peacekeepers, who were attacked in the Gobongo neighborhood of the capital. Their destroyed car, with at least one calcied body still inside, had not been removed a day later, underscoring how danger ous this chaotic country has become, even for the international forces tasked with pacifying it, said African Union spokesman Eloi Yao. As the African Union was struggling to secure that crime scene, they discovered another: Close to the presidential palace, peacekeepers discovered a mass grave. We found around 20 bodies in a state of decomposition in an area that we call Panthers Hill. The 20 were scattered in different graves in a small area. You found ve bodies in one hole, three in another, two in yet another and so on, said Yao. The Central African Republic has been plunged into chaos, as the countrys Christian majority seeks revenge against the Muslim rebels who seized power in a coup in March. Both Christian and Muslim civilians are now armed, and the foreign troops brought in to try to rein in the violence have been sucked into the conict, accused of taking sides.Attack on presidential palace thwarted in Bangui CAIRO (AP) Egypts security authorities launched a sweep of arrests of Muslim Brotherhood members on Thursday and warned that holding a leadership post in the group could now be grounds for the death penalty after it was ofcially declared a terror ist organization, stepping up the governments confrontation with its top political nemesis. The announcement came as a bomb exploded in a busy intersection in Cairo Thursday morning, hitting a bus and wounding ve people. Though small, the blast raised fears that a campaign of violence by Islamic militants that for months has targeted police and the military could turn to civilians in retaliation for the stepped up crackdown. The terrorist labeling of the Brotherhood an unprecedented step even during past decades when the group was banned takes to a new level the governments moves to crush the group, which rode on elections to dominate Egypts politics the past three years until the military removed Islamist President Mohammed Morsi in July after massive protests against him. The Brotherhood vowed to qualitatively escalate its protests against the new military-backed interim government, whose authority it rejects. The group has struggled to bring numbers into the streets in past months under a crackdown that has already killed hundreds of its members and put thousands more in prison, including Morsi and other top leaders and there was little sign of any protests on Thursday. The moves all playing out before the backdrop of increasing violence by al-Qaida-inspired militants raise the potential for greater turmoil as the country nears a key Jan. 14-15 referendum on a revised constitution, a milestone in the post-Morsi political transition. The government is pushing for overwhelming passage of the new document, while the Brotherhood vows to stop it with protests. Ahmed Imam, spokesman for the Strong Egypt Party founded by ex-Brotherhood member Abdel-Moneim Abolfotoh, warned that the terrorism label leaves the Muslim Brotherhood and its supporters only one choice, which is violence. Both sides are showing a great deal of stupidity, he said, blaming the Brotherhood for failing to rmly distance itself from militant violence and the government for closing doors to reconciliation.Egypt hikes assault on Muslim Brotherhood | WORLD BRIEFSRussia: Arafats death not caused by radiationMOSCOW (AP) A Russian probe into the death of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat has found that his death wasnt caused by radiation a nding that comes after a French probe found traces of the radioactive isotope polonium and a Swiss investigation said the time frame of his illness and death was consistent with that of polonium poisoning. Vladimir Uiba, the head of the Federal Medical and Biological Agency, said Thursday that Arafat died of natural causes and the agency had no plans to conduct further tests. Teams of scientists from France, Switzerland and Russia were asked to deter mine whether polonium, a rare and extremely lethal substance, played a role in Arafats death in a French military hospital in 2004. French experts found traces of polonium but said it was of natural environmental origin, according to Arafats widow, Suha Arafat. Swiss scientists, meanwhile, said they found elevated traces of polonium-210 and lead, and that the time frame of Arafats illness and death was consistent with poisoning from ingesting polonium. It was a natural death; there was no impact of radiation, Uiba said, according to Russian news agencies.Thai election body urges delay in polls amid clashBANGKOK (AP) Thailands election commission on Thursday called for upcoming polls to be delayed as street battles between security forces and protesters seeking to disrupt the ballot killed a police ofcer and injured nearly 100 people, dealing fresh blows to the beleaguered government. The government quickly rejected the call. Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra wants the Feb. 2 polls to take place as scheduled, believing she would win handily and renew her mandate. The street violence adds to pressure on her to take a tougher line against the protesters, who are trying to force her from ofce, risking more chaos and possible intervention by the army.American kidnapped in Pakistan pleads for Obamas help(LA Times) An American contractor kidnapped by al-Qaida in Pakistan two years ago appears in a video that surfaced Thursday pleading with President Barack Obama to negotiate for his release and saying he feels totally abandoned. Warren Weinstein, who was snatched from his home in Lahore in August 2011, appears weary and dejected in the 13-minute video bearing the stamp of As-Sahab, al-Qaidas media operation. I am not in good health. I have a heart condition. I suffer from acute asthma, Weinstein, 72, says in the video clip emailed to several journalists covering South Asia, including The Associated Press. Needless to say, Ive been suffering deep anxiety every part of every day. Mr. President, for the majority of my adult life, for over 30 years, Ive served my country, Weinstein says in the video. Now when I need my government it seems that I have been totally abandoned and forgotten. FREEONLINESHIPPINGEVERYDAY+EXTRA15%OR1O%OFF!FREESHIPPINGWITH$99PURCHASE.

But economists say the gures from late November and December are warped by seasonal volatility around the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years holidays. The Labor Department reported Thursday that the less-volatile fourweek average rose 4,250 to 348,000. Claims had jumped 75,000 over the two weeks that ended Dec. 14 before plunging last week. The Labor Department struggles to account for seasonal hiring by retailers and other businesses and for temporary layoffs of cafeteria workers and other employees at schools that close for the holidays. Unemployment claims are a proxy for layoffs and the recent declines are consistent with a solid job market. The economy has shown signs of improvement recently, so much so that the Federal Reserve announced Dec. 18 that it would reduce its stimulus spending on bonds by $10 billion to $75 billion a month. The economy expanded at a 4.1 percent annual pace from July through September, the fastest rate since late 2011 and much greater than previously thought. Hiring has been healthy the past four months. The economy added an average of 204,000 jobs every month from August through November, an improvement from earlier this year. The unemployment rate fell in November to a veyear low of 7 percent. Still, that remains above the 5 percent to 6 percent rate that would signal a normal job market. And long-term unemployment remains a big blot on the economys performance: Nearly 4.1 million Americans have been unemployed for six months or more. Before 2008, the number of long-term unemployed had never surpassed 3 million people, according to records dating back to 1948.Weekly US jobless claims drop NEW YORK (AP) The stock market continued its upward climb Thursday as traders went back to work after the Christmas holiday, adding to what has already been a historic year for the market. Traders were encour aged by an unexpectedly large drop in claims for unemployment benets last week, the latest sign that the U.S. job market is improving. Trading volume was very low, however, as most portfolio managers have closed out their positions for the year. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note, a benchmark for many kinds of loans, briey crossed above the psychologically important 3 percent mark. It hasnt been that high since September. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 122.33 points, or 0.8 percent, to 16,479.88. It was the 50th record high close for the Dow this year. The index is up 25.8 percent so far in 2013, on pace to have its best year since 1996. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 8.70 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,842.02 and the Nasdaq composite was up 11.76 points, or 0.3 percent, to 4,167.18. With Thursdays gains, the S&P 500 is up 29.2 percent for the year, or 31.3 percent when dividends are included. The S&P is on track for its best year since 1997. Bond prices fell, pushing the yield on the 10-year Treasury note to 2.99 percent from 2.98 percent Tuesday. The note briey traded above 3 percent. Yields have been climbing since late November as economic reports have suggested that the U.S. recovery is gaining momentum. The increase accelerated last week after the Federal Reserve announced it was cutting back on its bond-buying program. The yield last touched 3 percent in September. It hasnt been consistently above 3 per cent since July 2011. Theres a silver lining to see bond yields rise like this, because its a sign that the economy is getting stronger, said John De Clue, chief investment ofcer of U.S. Bank Wealth Management. Yields on Treasury securities like the 10-year note are used to calculate interest rates on student loans, mortgage rates, credit cards, and many other kinds of debt. As the 10-year yield has risen in the last six months, so have mortgage rates.Stocks up on job market news 0 0

But many observers say its too early to write off the savvy politician who has weathered a series of crises since his Islamic-based party came to power in 2002. If the allegations are true, this would without doubt be the deepest crisis the government has faced, said Murat Yetkin, editor in chief and political commentator for the Hurriyet Daily News newspaper. In comments published Thursday, Erdogan said he believes he is the ultimate target of the probe but declared that those trying to enmesh him in the scandal will be left empty-handed. Erdogan, 59, was long hailed as a transformational leader who came to power on a promise to crack down on corruption and carried out spectacular economic and political reforms. He turned Turkey into a relatively stable and prosperous country, curtailing the powers of the military and raising the nations international prole. More recently, though, critics say he has cut a more authoritarian and erratic gure, often reverting to conspiracy theories to deal with crises. Those tactics have damaged his image as an international statesman. He has blamed the scandal on a rival Islamic movement led by Fethullah Gulen a cleric who is living in self-imposed exile in the U.S. and whose followers are widely believed to have a strong foothold in Turkeys police and judiciary. Gulen has denied any involvement. Erdogan has also suggested the United States is behind the investigation, prompting American ofcials to warn the government not to endanger ties between the close NATO allies with unfounded allegations. The scandal erupted on Dec. 17, when police launched a probe tar geted at Erdogans allies, focusing on alleged illicit money transfers to Iran and bribery for construction projects. Dozens were detained in police raids, including the sons of three key government ministers. Two of the sons were later arrested on bribery charges. Erdogan resisted calls for the dismissal of the three ministers for a week but nally gave in on Wednesday, forcing them to step down and then distancing himself from them. The move backred when one of them, Environment and Urban Planning Minister Erdogan Bayraktar, refused to go quietly and mounted an unprecedented attack on Erdogan, calling on him to step down too. Bayraktar said construction projects under investigation were launched at the prime ministers instructions. The crisis has upset the markets, and the Turkish lira plummeted to a record low on Thursday against the dollar.Turkish PM struggles to contain corruption probe JUBA, South Sudan (AP) Fighting per sisted in parts of South Sudans oil-producing region as African leaders tried Thursday to advance peace talks between the countrys president and political rivals he accuses of attempting a coup to seize control of the worlds newest country. Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn had a constructive dialogue with South Sudanese President Salva Kiir, according to Kiirs foreign minister. But the fugitive former deputy president who now leads renegade troops was not represented, and no political breakthrough emerged. The next round of meetings will be held in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi, where regional leaders under a bloc known as IGAD are to meet Friday to discuss a report from Thursdays meeting, South Sudanese Foreign Minister Barnaba Marial Benjamin said. Kiir agreed in principle to stop hostilities and to negotiate with former Vice President Riek Machar, who is expected to be formally invited by IGAD to attend upcoming peace talks, said Benjamin, who offered no details. It was not possible to reach Machar, as his known phone numbers were switched off. Government troops are trying to retake control of Bentiu, the capital of Unity state, from forces loyal to Machar. Fighting was also reported in Malakal, capital of Upper Nile state. Upper Nile and Unity comprise the countrys key oil-producing region, raising concerns that unrest there could cut off the economic lifeblood of the young nation, which gets nearly its entire government budget from oil. Citing more progress against rebels on the battleeld, South Sudans minister of information told reporters that national forces on Thursday regained full control of Malakal. Michael Makuei Lueth said criminal elements had been looting the town, but the army now had it under control. Military spokesman Col. Philip Aguer said government troops were preparing to retake Bentiu as soon as possible.African leaders seek peace talks in South Sudan | WORLD NEWS BRIEFSActivists: Syria will let food into rebel townBEIRUT (AP) Residents of a blockaded rebel-held town near Damascus raised the ag used by the government of President Bashar Assad in a deal that sees them accept symbolic humiliation in exchange for food, activists said on Thursday. The deal accepted by the town of Moadamiyeh is one of a number of shortlived, local truces reached between opposition-held towns and government forces in recent months, although the terms which also included the rebels handing over heavy weapons and expelling outsiders are unusual. Residents described it as a bitter pill to swallow. For nearly a year, the sprawling community west of Damascus was shelled and starved, surrounded by government checkpoints that refused to allow through food, clean water and fuel, pressur ing residents to expel anti-Assad rebels among them. At least two women and four children died of hunger-related illnesses by September, said activists. The agreement also demanded rebels hand over their heavy weapons and that only registered residents of Moadamiyeh may remain in the town, in a condition likely to thin rebel ranks.Israel launches airstrikes in GazaJERUSALEM (AP) The Israeli military says it has carried out airstrikes on two targets in the Gaza Strip in response to a pair of rocket attacks. The army said Thursdays airstrikes targeted a weapons manufacturing facility and a weapons storage facility. It says direct hits were conrmed. Palestinian ofcials say there were no injuries. The aerial attacks came hours after Palestinian militants red two rockets into southern Israel. No injuries were reported.Greenpeace activists allowed to leave RussiaST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) Russian authorities issued exit visas to 14 of the 30 Greenpeace members on Thursday, a move that will allow them to leave the country and comes after charges were dropped against them over a protest outside an Arctic oil rig. Greenpeace said other foreign members of the crew were expected to get their exit visas on Friday and that the rst of the detained activists, Dmitri Litvinov of Sweden, boarded a train heading for Finland late Thursday.

Hands on his hips, head down, walking slowly. Hell tell you he could have or should have done better, no matter how much his result may impress everyone else. The junior nished third in his district and seventh in his region this season. It wasnt good enough. At the Class 3A championship in November, he accomplished the goal he set for himself at the beginning of the season by running the 5-kilometer course in 16:00.17 and nishing 20th. It wasnt good enough, either. Fisher doesnt feel this way only about cross country, he possesses the attitude when he runs track (mile, two mile). He also has it in the classroom at Port Charlotte High School, where his GPA is 4.3 and he ranks 10th in his class. (Its) OK, is all Fisher will allow. The people around Fisher are used to hearing him say things like that. Sadly, no, Ive never seen him satised, teammate Brandon Randall said. Every race he says, I couldve done better; I didnt give it my all, even though we all know that when he nishes hes dead, he gave it his all. Anyone who has coached Fisher notices the same thing, that he runs quite literally as fast as he can for a full race. The per-mile Satisfaction not guaranteedBy ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITER BOYS CROSS COUNTRY: All-area teamTyler Fishers running makes everyone happy except for himselfFISHER | 6 Roper vows better tempoBy MARK LONGASSOCIATED PRESSGAINESVILLE Florida is turning to Dukes Kurt Roper to improve the Southeastern Conferences worst offense. Coach Will Muschamp is counting on Ropers previous success in the league and his experience with an up-tempo scheme to get it done. Muschamp announced Ropers hire Thursday, three days after he agreed to take the job. He has a diverse, up-tempo background on offense and does a good job of adapting to what the players do best, Muschamp said. The most important thing, though, is he has always remained balanced. He has had success calling plays in the SEC and has tutored three NFL quarter backs. He has had players produce at every offensive position and he is one of the most well-respected coaches in the country. Roper is leaving the same position at Duke. He also was an assistant head coach with the Blue Devils. Roper spent hours inter viewing for the job with Muschamp on Monday. He will remain with Duke through the Chick-l-A Bowl on Tuesday night.

ROPER | 2 It took the Buffalo Bills all of two and a half minutes Sunday to accomplish something Miami has done once all season: Run for and gain a rst down on third-and-medium yardage. Needing 6 yards, Fred Jackson tore through the line and gained 9 yards, setting the tone for what was a frustratingly long day for the Dolphins run defense. Buffalo gashed Miami for 203 yards on 51 carries, keeping the Dolphins offense on ice for most of the afternoon. The Bills ultimately called designed third-down runs seven more times (including one negated by penalty), reaching the sticks on two of those occasions. Meanwhile, the Dolphins ran the ball once on their 14 third-down tries. Coincidentally or Run-down play affects offenseBy ADAM H.

The Venice High School graduate was unable to compete last year after surgery for a torn meniscus she said likely resulted from years of gymnastics. DeVries started at 2 and became a Level 10 gymnast for the Tampa Bay Turners club team. During high school she experienced the discomfort that lasted into college, when the diagnosis was made. Because the junior tried to work her way through the injury, she didnt receive a redshirt. DeVries said she was in a therapy program for a few months and worked on upper-body strength, though it was at least four months before she was able to attempt signicant gymnastics. She trained half of the past summer at school with teammates and half at home with club teammates. She said she entered this season with her knee feeling better than ever, yet its taken time to recover her strength and stamina. Ive nally gotten back to normal in my skills, said DeVries, who scored 9.650 in her lone vault as a freshman. She is trying to work her way into the lineup for when competition starts in January. The team has an upcoming intrasquad practice during which the gymnasts perform in the individual events. The coaches judge them to decide who will compete in the opener. Its really difcult, DeVries said. It only motivates you to work even harder. The competition is stiff because of the returning upperclassmen. We have six seniors, coach Mark Stevenson said. Its going to be hard for any of the younger ones to get through. Naomis had a very good fall semester, he said. Shes very good on the oor, vaults and beam. Her best chance to crack the lineup is in the oor exercise, Stevenson adding, noting that she is polishing her routine. Naomis looking good on the oor. Weve got to make sure shes condent and consistent. The performance level has to be there in order to compete, he said. Were still trying to nd the passes and the skills. DeVries said she does a full twisting double back, as do four teammates, on the oor. Thats one of the hardest skills, she said. Its impressive, and it scores well. The vault is her next best chance, Stevenson said, given that she repeats the delivery steps, speed of run, vault and dismount. It has to be as close to the same as possible, he said. When one of those changes, it throws off something down the line. That makes it difcult. She said she is one of two on the squad to do a front handspring vault. Because of the height and ight from the apparatus required, sticking the landing can be challenging, even for those without a surgically repaired knee. Its a unique vault because it doesnt always get scored well, she said. You have to have a lot more power getting into it. DeVries doesnt wear a knee brace and applies heat before and ice after practices. She feels some pain but is encouraged by her training. Ive progressed so much more from last year to right now, she said.Wolfpack gymnast back on trackBy BARBARA BOXLEITNERSUN CORRESPONDENT AWAY AT COLLEGE: Naomi DeVries NEW YORK The bidding for Japanese star pitcher Masahiro Tanaka has begun. All 30 major league teams were notied that the 30-day period to sign the star 25-year-old righthander began at 8 a.m. Thursday, according to MLB spokesman Michael Teevan. Clubs have until 5 p.m. on Jan. 24 to reach an agreement with the ace. If Tanaka and a major league team come to terms, that franchise is required to pay his Japanese club, the Rakuten Eagles, a posting fee, now capped at $20 million under a deal reached two weeks ago between MLB and Nippon Professional Baseball. Under the old, no-limit system, the Texas Rangers paid over $50 million for the right to negotiate with Yu Darvish before the 2012 season. Rakuten rejected the new posting system but was outvoted in balloting by Japans 12 teams. The Japan Series champion said it was going to retain Tanaka, whose rights it holds for two more seasons. But Eagles President Yozo Tachibana changed course Wednesday, saying Tanaka deserved a chance to play in the majors. The New York Yankees are among several teams in need of top-line starting pitching. Former Orioles star Paul Blair dies: Paul Blair, the eighttime Gold Glove center fielder who helped the Baltimore Orioles win World Series titles in 1966 and 1970, has died. He was 69. Blair played for the Orioles from 1964-76, the New York Yankees winning World Series in 1977 and 1978 and the Cincinnati Reds.Bidding opens for Japanese starBy HOWIE RUMBERGASSOCIATED PRESS BASEBALL NOTEBOOK SPRING TRAINING COUNTDOWN48Days until Tampa Bay Rays pitchers and catchers report for spring training on Feb. 14 at Charlotte Sports Park TANAKA I feel like this was the right situation for me and my family at the right time, Roper said on a conference call with reporters. Its obviously a great university that has a great tradition, and I look forward to trying to add to that. The Gators (4-8) are coming off their rst losing season since 1979. Muschamp wants to overhaul the offense after three consecutive years ranked worse than 100th nationally in total yards. Muschamp red offensive coordinator Brent Pease and offensive line coach Tim Davis less than 24 hours after the season ended. Duke coach David Cutcliffe said Ropers coaching style includes intensity, tempo and quality of repetition. From the minute they hit the eld, its going to be intense, Cutcliffe said. I wouldnt call him a laid-back football coach by any stretch of the imagination. An 18-year coaching veteran, Roper spent six seasons as Dukes offensive coordinator. He has 14 years of experience coaching quarterbacks, including working with NFL quarterbacks Eli Manning (N.Y. Giants), Sean Renfree (Atlanta Falcons) and Thaddeus Lewis (Buffalo Bills). He inherits an offense that features mobile quar terback Jeff Driskel and plenty of running back depth, but also includes a woeful offensive line and few playmakers on the perimeter. I think the biggest thing is you got to nd out the strengths of your quarterback and the strengths of your offensive line, Roper said. Once you nd those strengths, then you can start putting together what youre going to start hanging your hat on offensively. Then the other ve players you have to nd out who can make something happen with the football. If its running backs, if its tight end or if its wide receivers, then you try to nd the way to get those guys the football and you create personnel or formations based on that. I think theres a reason for tempo in games that obviously causes defenses problems, but well never sacrice tempo over execution.ROPERFROM PAGE 1 Y1:,`


The Sun /Friday, December 27, 2013 SP Page 3 ORLANDO Stephen Morris came into the 2013 season with a hot hand, rave reviews and the hope of Hurricanes nation. He is leaving it with more hope than hype. Morris has made his mark in the Hurricanes history books, but he has not had the consistency many expected after stringing 139 consecutive passes (and 11 touchdowns) without an interception to nish the 2012 season. His bionic arm has often dazzled and just as often disappointed. Now, the senior quarterback for Miami (9-3) is feeling stronger after playing much of the season with a severe ankle bruise. He will enter the Russell Athletic Bowl against No. 18 Louisville (11-1) on Saturday with one last chance to fortify his NFL Draft worth in his nal game as a Hurricane. Can one game make a difference? Absolutely, said ESPN commentator Rod Gilmore, on the broadcast team for the bowl game. You only need one NFL team to fall in love with you, and that often means one coach, one scout seeing the potential they like. I think Morris is talented, no question. Hes got a good arm, good size and hes athletic enough. He just has to be more consistent at what he does so that people believe the upside is there. It will not be easy. Sophomore wide receiver Herb Waters, who ranks fourth on the team with 28 receptions and third in receiving yards (406) and touchdowns (ve), was on crutches Tuesday. Waters missed both practices this week, and his status is in jeopardy for the game. Veteran receiver Phillip Dorsett could be called on to compensate along with top receivers Allen Hurns (1,138 yards and six touchdowns) and Stacy Coley (559 and seven TDs). Dorsett, who has recuperated from a partially torn medial collateral ligament in his left knee, appears ready to play at a higher level, offensive coordinator James Coley indicated. Morris will face a Louisville defense rated second nationally against the run, eighth against the pass and second in stopping third-down conversions (UM is 85th in converting third downs), a daunting challenge. He welcomes it. Theyre a great defense, man, fast and physical, Morris said. Their defensive line gets to the quarterback, and the linebackers are big and they can run the length of the eld. Its going to be a great challenge for us, but all weve got to do is focus in on our rules and well see what happens. Bridgewater, a junior who is widely regarded as the No. 1 draft-eligible quarterback should he decide to leave college a year early, is considered the top guy because he makes the smart decisions, has all the athleticism you need and performs consistently at a high level, Gilmore said. He doesnt force the ball. Teddy is very, very comfortable checking down and dumping the ball off and sticking the ball in there when he can. Morris has to learn that. His composure and demeanor have to be better and more consistent. You cant handle the blitz and not panic one out of ve times its got to be four or ve times out of ve. Despite the setbacks, Morris recently passed 1992 Heisman Trophy winner Gino Torretta as the third-most prolic UM quarterback with 7,736 yards (behind Ken Dorseys 9,565 from 19992002 and Jacory Harris 8,826 from 2008-11). He needs 132 yards to become the second Miami quarterback in history with multiple back-toback 3,000-yard seasons. He had 3,345 in 2012. Im happy, man, Morris said after UMs nal home game against Virginia. This was still the best decision in my life coming here. Hopefully, when I leave, people still remember.Morris hopes final impression is lastingBy SUSAN MILLER DEGNANTHE MIAMI HERALD COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Miami AP PHOTOMiamis Stephen Morris, passing for a rst down during the rst half against Wake Forest on Oct. 26, takes on Louisville and counterpart Teddy Bridgewater on Saturday.

On its surface, the group summit doesnt sound like anything atypical. The receivers simply stated that they had to collectively elevate their practice habits and take on a pronounced leadership role with twoyear starting quarterback EJ Manuel and starting receiver Rodney Smith exhausting their eligibility. But as the offseason progressed, the FSU receivers dwindled. Those who sat in the meeting faded away, chipping at what was arguably the Seminoles deepest position of offense. Those who stayed still look at that conversation as a turning point. From the turmoil came a closer bond between FSUs three starting receivers: Rashad Greene, Kelvin Benjamin and Kenny Shaw. Together they have formed the top receiving trio in the country and are on the verge of making their mark on the NCAA record book. We felt like that, once we understood EJ was going to the NFL, right then we realized its denitely going to be somebody new, somebody inexperienced, Greene said. We have to do that job helping this person to step up. We feel like we make the offense go as a receiving corps. We just set that goal that whatever slack he had, wed pick up. Jameis Winston ended up winning the job over Jacob Coker in fall camp and went on to become the second freshman to win college footballs most prized individual accolade, the Heisman Trophy. Quietly at the core of Winstons success has been FSUs wide receivers. Winstons condence in his targets as allowed him to remaining condent in making risky throws. (Shaw) has been a great possession guy, Winston said prior to winning the Heisman. I love having him, Rashad, K.B. Those guys have made me look so good this year. FSU could become the fth team in Football Bowl Subdivision history to eld three 1,000-yard receivers in a season. Greene (67 receptions, 981 receiving yards, 9 touchdowns), Shaw (52 receptions, 929 receiving yards, 6 touchdowns) and Benjamin (50 receptions, 957 receiving yards, 14 touchdowns) are on pace to hit the 1,000-yard mark against Auburn in the BCS National Championship Game on Jan. 6. The original plan was never to utilize primarily three receivers. FSU coach Jimbo Fisher has used deep sets of receivers in the past, trying to keep players fresh while presenting different looks for defenses. However, attrition took its toll on the receivers. Marvin Bracy quit school in May to pursue a professional track career. Greg Dent, after a strong spring practice, was arrested on sexual assault charges in June and has been suspended indenitely. Then senior Willie Haulstead, slowed by a serious concussion following a stellar sophomore campaign, was declared academically ineligible during preseason camp. Shortly afterward, Scooter Haggins was lost for the year due to a knee injury. It changed a lot. I mean, youre going to have things come up off the eld, Shaw said. We picked up to it. That comes with experience. I think we adjusted well with a lot of receivers going down. Since we got together as a group and said we have to pick up the slack, we knew we were going to be the older guys for the rst time.By BRENDAN SONNONEORLANDO SENTINELAP PHOTOFlorida States Kelvin Benjamin breaks away from Floridas Brian Poole for a 45-yard gain against the Gators on Nov. 30. | BOWL SCOREBOARD TUESDAYS RESULT Hawaii Bowl At Honolulu Oregon State 38, Boise State 23 THURSDAYS RESULTS Little Caesars Pizza Bowl At Detroit Pittsburgh 30, Bowling Green 27 Poinsettia Bowl At San Diego Northern Illinois vs. Utah State, late TODAYS GAMES Military Bowl At Annapolis, Md.

Taylor Jeffrey Bowden, 23, and driver Rafael Fernandes De Aguiar Valim, 25, died in the crash, according to a news release from the Polk County Sheriffs Office. A third man in the crash 22-year-old Robert Lewis Edwards was rescued after spending hours in water up to his neck. Our whole family had just celebrated Christmas together in Panama City, as well as celebrated T.J.s graduation from Florida State just three weeks ago, Bobby Bowden said in a statement released by the University of Akron, where son Terry is coach. We will cherish those last memories together with T.J. forever. T.J. Bowden was the son of Jeff Bowden, a former Florida State assistant coach who is now on brother Terrys staff. I cant express the grief I feel right now, Jeff Bowden said in a statement. Please keep us in your prayers. Alcohol appeared to be a factor, the sheriffs office reported. A trash collector reported the submerged car at 7:47 a.m. The Mitsubishi wasnt very visible from the road, but the Florida Refuse truck was high enough to allow the worker to see it. Around the nation: Massachusetts fired coach Charley Molnar with three years remaining on his contract after a 2-22 record in the programs first two seasons in FBS. South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was pulled over for going at least 25 mph over the speed limit, his second speeding ticket in three weeks. Art Weiner, who teamed with Charlie Justice at the University of North Carolina to make a potent offensive duo, has died. He was 87.

Page 4 SP The Sun /Friday, December 27, 2013 not, it was just one of two third downs they converted all day. Sunday was the continuation of a run-adverse, season-long trend. Out of the Dolphins 204 third-down attempts this year, they have run the ball 23 times. And 15 of those instances came on third-and-1. There is no opposition to it, Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said this week when asked about the paucity of runs. (The Bills) hadnt really done a lot of that prior to this game. To their credit, they had a couple of good looks and executed their plays well, but we are certainly open to any way we can move the chains. He continued: Its not like we are not going to run the ball. Its just the defenses we anticipate, we dont think it is real advantageous to do that. By design or not, its had a real effect on the teams balance, or lack thereof. The Dolphins have thrown the ball a staggering 63 percent of the time, and yet have been no more efcient than last season. A year ago, when they were closer to a 50-50 run-pass split, Miami averaged 311.5 yards per game and 5.1 yards per play. This year, even with the ratio skewed? The numbers are at 314.1 and 5.0. One more stat: The Dolphins ran 40 times on third down a year ago nearly twice as often as they have in 2013. Its brilliant if you get it, offensive tackle Tyson Clabo said. Its one of those things that is kind of a roll of the dice. If you get it, youre like, Oh, they ran it on third-and-5 and got the rst down. If you dont get it, there are some people there scratching their heads. If nothing else, it adds an element of surprise something sorely lacking from the Dolphins game plan. Of their 327 runs this year, 188 came on rst down (57.5 percent). It depends on the down and distance, (but you want to be sure) the defense is always on their toes, said Dolphins running back Lamar Miller, who leads the Dolphins with 636 yards, despite getting just 10.7 carries per game. I feel like if its thirdand-2, you can maybe run the ball and be able to get a rst down. But if its like third-and-10, most denitely throw the ball. Said Clabo: It takes a little bit out of the pass rush if they think you might run a draw or turn around and hand it off (on third down). At this point, anything is worth trying at least once. The Dolphins have the leagues seventh-fewest rushing yards (1,348) this season. Yet that meager total has as much to do with quantity as quality. Only Atlanta and Dallas have run the ball fewer times. And for all the talk that this is a passing league, ve of the leagues six run-heaviest teams are in line to make the playoffs.MIAMIFROM PAGE 1 season, second with Tampa Bay. Jacksons done it despite the Bucs messy split with quarterback Josh Freeman, who lost his job to rookie Mike Glennon less than a month into this season. And despite the team not having another proven offensive playmaker on the eld for much of the year. Ive never been a stats guy, said Jackson, who played the rst seven years of his career with the San Diego Chargers. Ive been fortunate enough to have solid numbers, but being a starting receiver in this league youre expected at some point to produce at a certain level. I just really believe in this system. I trust our coaches are going to put me in position to be successful, he added. Each and every year, I come into training camp with a beginners mentality (believing) I can learn more, I can get better, I can improve on my craft, and I continue to work on that each and every week. The Bucs signed Jackson in free agency before the 2012 season, giving him a ve-year, $55.55 million that was written in all 5s in honor of Freeman, who wore jersey No. 5. And while Freeman prospered in his only full season of throwing to Jackson, becoming Tampa Bays rst 4,000-yard passer, the young quar terbacks inconsistency eventually cost him the starting job. With Glennon at quar terback, the Bucs have continued to struggle offensively, sinking to last in the league statistically while posting new season lows for total yardage in four of the past ve games. While Gerald McCoy, Lavonte David and Darrelle Revis have had strong seasons on defense, when the NFC selections for the Pro Bowl are announced today, Jackson gures to be the only Tampa Bay offensive player who has much of a chance at making the squad. Hes having a great year and been such a huge part of our offense, Glennon said. Hes been such an emphasis from a defensive scouting standpoint that you have to give him so much more credit than maybe hes even (received) because every ones keying on him so much, Glennon added. And yet, even with them keying on him, he still makes a lot of big plays. In addition to putting together his fth 1,000yard season in the past six years, Jackson is averaging 16.1 yards per catch and has four 100-yard games this year while also providing much-needed leadership on and off the eld for a young team thats played hard, if not always very well. Despite the record, guys have to believe were playing for each other. Youre playing for the name on the back, obviously, and that emblem on the helmet, representing your city, representing your organization thats given you a job, Jackson said.JACKSONFROM PAGE 1 Bowers put on IRTAMPA (AP) Tampa Bay placed defensive end DaQuan Bowers on injured reserve and lled the roster opening by signing defensive lineman Scott Solomon. Bowers is a third-year pro who had a disappointing season, nishing with seven tackles and one sack. He sat out last weeks loss at St. Louis with a sore knee and becomes the 16th player the Bucs have placed on injured reserve this year. Solomon was a seventh-round draft pick of the Tennessee Titans in 2012. He appeared in 13 games with the Titans as a rookie and one game this season with the New York Jets. AP PHOTODetroit tight end Dorin Dickerson goes up against New York Giants free safety Ryan Mundy last weekend. The Lions placed Dickerson on injured reserve Thursday, four days after he didnt immediately tell the teams medical sta he sustained a concussion during the Giants game. NFL: ConcussionsNFL players still hide concussionsALLEN PARK, Mich. Detroit Lions tight end Dorin Dickerson is the latest NFL player to stay in a game with a concussion. He joined a long list. Buffalo Bills safety Jim Leonhard and Tennessee Titans safety George Wilson both acknowledged this week they have played with concussions in the past. San Diego safety Eric Weddle said, of course it happens, because play ers dont want to come out of games for fear of losing their jobs or roles. Dickerson didnt tell the Lions medical staff immediately about his concussion, which he recalled getting on a kickoff during the second half. He later dropped a pass and was called for holding in overtime of Sundays 23-20 loss to the New York Giants. I just got knocked out, Dickerson told reporters after the game. I just got a little concussion. I should have reported it. I thought I could get through it. Four days later, the 25-year-old journeyman was put on injured reserve. Dickerson, who has caught 11 passes in 23 games over three years with three NFL teams, may have simply been trying to make the most of his opportunity to play even if he was putting his health at risk. For players and the league, theres a lot at stake. Millions can be made by men who can thrive and survive in what Lions receiver Nate Burleson called a gladiator sport, by shaking off hits that are so hard brains collide with skulls. And, hundreds of millions of dollars perhaps billions in the future can be lost by the league. The NFL agreed before this season started to pay $765 million to settle lawsuits from thousands of former players who developed dementia or other concussion-related health problems they claimed were caused by the same on-eld violence that boosted the games popularity. Former Lions and Washington Redskins athletic trainer Al Bellamy, who worked for NFL teams from 1988-2012, said theres only so much medical professionals can do to protect players from themselves. I dont think theres anything you can do if a player isnt being forthright about his health, said Bellamy, now the director of athletic training at Temple. By LARRY LAGEASSOCIATED PRESS Rodgers gets the all clear to playBy GENARO C. ARMASASSOCIATED PRESSGREEN BAY, Wis. Aaron Rodgers has been cleared to return from a left collarbone injury, just in time to start Sunday for the Packers against the Chicago Bears in a game to decide the NFC North title. With no advance warning and little fanfare, the franchise quarterback received the long-awaited good news at the same time as the rest of his teammates Thursday. This is a fun day for me, but I think the focus needs to be on this game and the opportunity we have to win the division, Rodgers said. Soon enough. But the spotlight for now is squarely on the return of one of the NFLs most irreplaceable players. Green Bay (7-7-1) is 2-5-1 since Rodgers went down during the rst series of a 27-20 loss Nov. 4 to Chicago (8-7). The Packers have managed to hang on, with a shot to win a third consecutive division title with a victory Sunday at Soldier Field. Ill start with the announcement that were preparing for the Chicago Bears with Aaron Rodgers as our starting quarterback, coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Thursday after practice. Win and Green Bay returns to Lambeau Field the following weekend to host a wild-card team in the rst round of the playoffs. Were in it. You know we have a chance against our rivals, and what a better way than to go down there and get some redemption and host a home playoff game, Rodgers said. The last two months have been lled with angst for Packers fans. Discussions about whether Rodgers should risk future injury or return to bolster Green Bays playoff chances have lled sports talk radio shows and holiday ofce parties. Now imagine what it was like for the Packers brass and team doctor. The organization made a big investment in Rodgers this past offseason, signing him to a veyear contract extension through the 2019 season worth as much as $110 million. Every football player that plays in this game Sunday will have risk. I think we all understand that, McCarthy said. So weve done our due diligence. Weve gone through all the evaluations and we feel it is time. Aaron is ready to play. Finally at 8:05 a.m. Thursday, McCarthy gave the ofcial word at a team meeting. No rousing speeches or rounds of applause. Rodgers is returning just when pass-rushing linebacker Clay Matthews is leaving the lineup again with a right thumb injury. Green Bay also has gone the majority of the season without tight end Jermichael Finley (neck). Projected starting left tackle Bryan Bulaga went down in training camp. Defensive end Johnny Jolly (shoulder/neck) was the latest Packer to get knocked out for the year last week. NFL: Green Bay NEW YORK ACL injuries are down, the NFL has told its Health and Safety Advisory Committee. In a memo to the committee sent earlier this week and obtained by The Associated Press, the league said research showed there were 30 ACL injuries in games through the preseason and rst 13 weeks of the schedule. There were 39 such injuries in 2012, 35 in 2011, 37 in 2010, and 31 in 2009. Anterior cruciate ligament problems are the most severe knee injuries. There was an increase in medial collateral ligament injuries (MCL), from 74 in 2012 to 89 in games this season through 13 weeks. But there were 106 MCL injuries in 2011, 89 in 2010 and 103 in 2009. The injury reporting service Quintiles/ Outcome provided the numbers to the league, which then sent them to the committee chaired by 49ers owner John York. The committee also includes Giants owner John Mara, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, Packers President Mark Murphy and Falcons President Rich McKay. The data are for all types of ACL and MCL injuries, including tears and sprains. Cornerback to retire: In Alameda, Calif., former All-Pro cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha will retire after 11 years in the NFL. The Raiders said Asomugha will make the announcement at a news conference at team headquarters today. Asomugha was drafted in the first round out of California in 2003. He earned three Pro Bowl selections in eight seasons in Oakland and was a first-team All-Pro in 2008 and 2010. Seahawks on verge of NFL punting record: Entering the season finale against St. Louis, Seattle has allowed only 25 punt return yards on 16 returns. Theyre on pace to set an NFL record for fewest return yards allowed in a 16-game season. Its an obscure record but highlights the importance Seattle has put on its special teams. Were very confident that we can control that and do a great job there, but you have to have the consistency of the coverage, Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. Around the league: Receiver Antonio Brown was voted Pittsburghs Most Valuable Player for the second time in three years. Brown, who won the award in 2011, has set the club record for yards receiving in a single season (1,412) and with 101 receptions has a chance to break Hines Wards mark of 112 catches in 2002. Antonio Cromartie said hes definitely open to restructuring his contract with the New York Jets to assure the veteran cornerback return next season. Minnesota plans to honor former center Matt Birk before its final game at the Metrodome Sunday. Birk will serve as an honorary captain for the Vikings game against the Detroit Lions. Birk, who was drafted in the sixth round in 1998, pent 11 seasons with the Vikings and four with Baltimore. Buffalo rookie receiver Robert Woods told The Associated Press he was fined $15,000 by the NFL for punching Miami safety Reshad Jones last weekend. Woods was ejected after throwing the punch in the third quarter of Buffalos 19-0 win. Jon Kitna will earn $53,000 to serve as the Cowboys third-string quarterback for one week and the 41 year old plans to donate that money to the Seattle-area high school (Lincoln HS, Tacoma) where he is a coach. Injury report: Dallas receiver Dez Bryant said he will play in a winner-take-all finale against Philadelphia despite missing practice because of a back problem. Jacksonville will be without two defensive starters: linebacker Geno Hayes (knee) and cornerback Dwayne Gratz (ankle). St. Louis rookie Tavon Austin missed another day of practice, lessening the odds hell be ready for the Rams season finale at Seattle.League sees decline in ACL injuries this yearBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NFL NOTEBOOK AP PHOTODenvers Von Miller hobbles o the eld after sustaining an ACL injury this month.

James received 31 of the 96 votes cast in a polling of news organizations. Peyton Manning got 20 votes to nish second; Jimmie Johnson was third with seven. In all, 15 other athletes received at least one vote. James joins Michael Jordan and Larry Bird as NBA players to win the award. Jordan won in 1991, 1992 and 1993. Bird won in 1986. James led the Heat to their second straight NBA championship in 2013, winning his fourth MVP award and second NBA Finals MVP along the way.

On a video posted to a sponsors YouTube site, White shows the world the trick hes been working on for the upcoming Olympics. Its a frontside double-cork 1440, which resembles his Double McTwist 1260 but adds another half revolution of twist inside the two head-over-heels flips.

CLEVELAND Jeff Teague scored a career-high 34 points, including a 20-foot jumper at the buzzer in the second overtime, to give the Atlanta Hawks a 127-125 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday night. Teagues fallaway jumper over Tristan Thompson bounced off the rim ve times before falling through the net to give Atlanta the victory. Teague fell to the oor after shooting the ball and was mobbed by his teammates. Teagues 3-pointer with 4.9 seconds left tied the game at 108-all in the rst overtime. Kyrie Irving led Cleveland with 40 points, including 12 in the second OT.

Around the league: The NBA said referees made a mistake when they ejected Los Angeles forward Blake Griffin in the Clippers 105-103 loss at Golden State on Wednesday night. Rod Thorn, the NBAs president of basketball operations, said a common foul should have been called on Griffin for initially attempting to dislodge the Warriors Andrew Bogut and a technical foul should have been assessed to Bogut for grabbing Griffin by the shirt and wrestling with him. Meanwhile, from the same game, Warriors forward Draymond Green was fined $15,000 by the NBA for failing to leave the court in a timely manner after his ejection against the Clippers.Teague, Hawks tip Cavs in 2OTsBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NBA ROUNDUP PISTONS AT MAGICWHO: Detroit (14-16) at Orlando (8-20) WHEN: Today, 7 p.m. WHERE: Amway Center, Orlando TV: Fox Sports Florida RADIO: No local affiliate TICKETS: Ticketmaster.comHEAT AT KINGSWHO: Miami (22-6) at Sacramento (8-19) WHEN: Today, 10 p.m. WHERE: Sleep Train Arena, Sacramento TV: Sun Sports RADIO: 99.3 FMAP PHOTOClevelands Jarrett Jack, right, passes around Atlantas Shelvin Mack during the rst quarter of Thursday nights game. l111Kf /


Page 6 SP The Sun /Friday, December 27, 2013 pace of most runners during a 5k, which is 3.1 miles, is usually about a minute slower than their best stand-alone mile time. Fishers is less than 20 seconds slower. His best per-mile pace for a 5k is 5:15. His best mile time during track season is a 4:56. Theres honestly no pacing about it, I just run as hard as I can the entire race, Fisher said. I never feel like I have a race where I didnt do my best, but every race I feel like I shouldve done better. I know that doesnt make any sense. Whether or not that makes sense, that constant lack of satisfaction fuels Fishers incessant drive to be the best. Last month, while preparing for the Foot Locker South Regional Cross Country Championships, Fisher took a three-week training plan coach Ray Chumbley made for him and for and made it as tough as he could. The plan simply listed distances for him to run each day, but not how fast to run them or where to run them. So Fisher ran them as fast as he could through a course with a 30-foot hill and stretches of sand. He nished in the middle of the 320-person eld in 16:23. I made it as hard on myself as I could to prepare myself and make myself better, Fisher said. I just try and get everything I can out of every opportunity. This is where Fisher is different from most other athletes, but also his former self. Hes always been ultra-competitive, but until a couple of years ago he wasnt willing to push himself daily. Fisher quit the cross country team during his freshman year after one bad day of training. There was this run; it was just an easy ve-mile run, and I just couldnt do it, Fisher said. So I came back and thought, do I want to do this? and I just decided not to. A few months later, he quit the basketball team after getting sick during practice one day. That spring, he joined the lacrosse team, only to quit after a few weeks and joined the track team. In track, he met Cody Adkinson, who was a junior at the time and is a sophomore member of the cross country team at Florida Gulf Coast, and the word quit disappeared from his vocabulary. Fisher stayed at Adkinsons side, asking for advice on training and eating. Everyone who competes in Division I athletics has the same attitude as Tyler, they want to do everything they can to improve, Adkinson said. He asks so many questions and he listens, all he does is listen. Fisher also observed how Adkinson responded to a bad day. Just to see him push through those bad days really helped me get into that mindset that I need to do this if I want to be good, Fisher said. Now I know there are other people out there that are doing the same thing. I dont want anyone else out there to train harder than I am. Fishers goals for next cross country season are, as usual, lofty. He wants to break the 16-minute barrier and get his time into the low-15s, and he wants to win a state title. Ive thought about it, Fisher said. If I won states and ran low or mid 15s, it would probably be at least a top ve happiest moment of my life because all the hard work would pay off. I would probably cry, it would be pretty emotional. Im saving it for that one race where I can be satised.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or zmiller@sun-herald. com.FISHERFROM PAGE 1ALL-AREA TEAM VolleyballSundayBoys golfMondayGirls golfTuesdayBoys swimmingWednesdayGirls swimmingThursdayBoys cross countryTodayGirls cross countrySaturdayFootballSundayFALL ALLAREA TEAMS MARSHALL DILLONCharlotte SophomoreDillon was Charlottes top runner, running his personal-best 16:47.3 at the Invitational in Titusville.

HONORABLE MENTION: Jordan Croteau (Port Charlotte), Kevin Plummer (Lemon Bay). NHL: Tampa BayBishop raises USA profileTAMPA Ben Bishop said it has been easy the past few months to not think about his chances of making the U.S. Olympic team. After all, Bishop, 27, had enough on his plate establishing himself as the Tampa Bays No. 1 goalie. But Bishop admits that potentially wearing the red, white and blue in February in Sochi, Russia, likely will be on my mind quite a bit next week. The team is announced Wednesday. Itd be a huge honor, something that nobody can take away from you, Bishop said. Itd be pretty cool to say that youre an Olympian. Im just trying to play my best right now and make it a hard decision on them. Bishop has made a strong case for consideration with his play this season. With Steven Stamkos out with a broken leg, suffered Nov. 11 in Boston, Bishop has helped lift the Lightning (23-11-3), winner of ve straight, to third place in the Eastern Conference. He is 20-5-2 and ranks among the league leaders in wins (second), goalsagainst average (1.93, fth), shutouts (three, tied for rst) and save percentage (.935, fth).By JOE SMITHTAMPA BAY TIMESRoster will be announced next week PREP SCHEDULEAll times p.m. unless noted TODAY Boys basketball Lemon Bay Holiday Shootout Charlotte vs. Haines City, 1 Sarasota vs. Wiregrass Ranch, 2:45 Port Charlotte vs. Strawberry Crest, 4:30 West Oaks vs. Lemon Bay, 6:15 Suncoast Holiday Classic at Sarasota-Riverview Second round East Bay vs. Alonzo & Tracy Mourning, 11:45 a.m. Southeast vs. Booker, 1:15 Sickles (Tampa) vs. Palmetto, 3 Covington Catholic vs. Cardinal Mooney, 4:30 Lake Howell vs. North Port, 6 Riverview vs. Braden River, 7:30 Smoothie King Classic at Bradenton Christian School.

The Sun Classified Page 10E/N/Cads.yoursun.netFriday, December 27, 2013 ZITSByJerryScott&JimBorgman GARFIELDByJimDavis FRESHLYSQUEEZEDByEdStein DILBERTByScottAdams REXM O R G ANByWoodyW i lsonand G rahamNolan MARYWORTHByKarenMoyandJoeGiellaDEAR DR. ROACH: I am 82 years old, and for the past several months, I have been experiencing numbness in the ngers of my left hand. The ngers on my right hand have some numbness, but not to the extent of the left hand. I am concerned that perhaps it might be heart-related, because it is on my left side. D.D. ANSWER: Angina pectoris (literally chest pain) is the classic sign of poor blood ow (ischemia) to the heart. However, despite its name, the sign usually isnt pain, and it doesnt have to be felt in the chest. Most people w ith ischemia complain of chest discomfort or chest pressure, usually after exertion but sometimes at rest. The discomfort often feels as though it is coming from other locations, including the left arm, but most commonly that is the inside of the left upper arm. Frequently, the sensation is nausea, shortness of breath, abdominal pain, shoulder pain or back pain. Any of these sensations upon exertion is worth a discussion with y our doctor, as they can be the most important signs of blockages in the arteries to the heart, which may lead to a heart attack. N umbness is only rarely a sign of heart problems. F ar more likely, this is a neuropathy, a symptom of damage to a nerve. The most common neuropathy of the hand is carpal tunnel syndrome, compression of the median nerve in the w r ist, but cubital tunnel syndrome (compression of the ulnar nerve in the elbow) and compression of the nerves of the neck (cervical radiculopathy) can look very similar, though your regular doctor or a neurologist usually can tell them apart on exam or with a study such as an EMG (electromyogram, an electrical study of the nerves). DEAR DR. ROACH: My 57-year-old husband had a checkup with his urologist. H is PSA level measured 4.2, and he was told to have a prostate biopsy. I am wondering about false-positive tests. Please explain what this is: Does stress make the number higher? Is it affected by diet? What is the prostate, and what should he expect w ith a biopsy? A.V.R. ANSWER: The prostate is a gland that only men have; its located behind the penis and testicles and in front of the rectum. The urethra carries urine from the bladder and ows right through the prostate. The prostate makes prostatic uid, which makes up the majority of the uid a man ejaculates. The PSA test looks at the amount of PSA, an enzyme normally found in the prostate, in the blood. The higher the number, the higher the risk of prostate cancer although, the test is not perfect. Some men with prostate cancer have very low PSA levels (this would be a false negative result), and others have high PSA and no cancer (a false positive result). Prostate infection and inammation, and benign growth of the gland are common causes for a high PSA level without cancer. Abo ut 25 percent of men with a PSA level above 4 but less than 10 have prostate cancer. The biopsy is usually performed by a urol ogist using an ultrasound probe to guide the biopsy site, and usually ve to seven samples are taken. A local anesthetic is used. The major complication is bleeding, which is usually minor. There remains a great deal of controversy about PSA testing, and it is best to have a discussion about the risks and benets in an individual prior to getting the PSA. DR. ROACH WRITES: Se veral readers have asked about disembarkment syndrome, the sensation of feeling like you are on the water after coming back from a trip by sea. More in formation can be found through the Mal de D ebarquement Syndrome Founda tion at www. Dr. Roach regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but will incorporate them in the column whenever possible.

Do you have hints for how to take care of it? I want to keep it looking good. H elen, via email Oriental rugs are beautiful additions to any home and can last a long time. He re are some hints for taking care of your rug: Lightly vacuum the r ug weekly to remove dirt. If possible, use a vacuum that does not have a beater bar and uses only suction. A new rug might shed, so dont be surprised if it happens. Place the rug in a spot out of direct sunlight to r educe fading. Rotate the rug every six months or so for even w ear, especially if its in a high-trafc area. Clean up spills by blotting with bath towels. Have the rug professionally cleaned every few y ears. Lastly, enjoy your rug! H eloiseTra vel hintDear Heloise: My husband and I have been fortunate to travel to many different countries. Of course, we go to the popular landmarks, museums and historical sites. We have collected many ticket stubs for entrance into places (like the Vatican). I now laminate them and use them as bookmarks. It is nice to keep them preserved, and seeing them brings fond memories of our trips. Linda W., via emailOrder firstDear Heloise: I have a 3-year-old son. When at a restaurant, I always order his food when the waitress comes to take our drink order. His food comes out rst, and I am not trying to entertain him and get him to sit still for a long time waiting for his food. A bonus is that when my food comes, he is already set up and eating, so I can enjoy my food. T.A. in TexasGreasy gunkDear Heloise: Toda y I cleaned our barbecue grill and ended up with black, greasy gunk on my hands. Ha ving no heavy-duty cleaner available, I used a little trick I learned from Ca jun friends years ago. A dab of mayonnaise works just as well to remove that gunk as any special hand cleaner Ive ever used. Try it, and you will be surprised!

HOROSCOPE DEAR ABBY: I live in a fairly well-to-do neighborhood on a cul-desac. There has been an increase in the trafc on my street, and I suspect its because a neighbors adult son has been selling drugs. M ost of the cars are driven by y oung people who park for ve to 10 minutes at the most, and all of them walk around to the back of the house. Hypodermic needles have been found in the street. S hould I talk to the police and risk alienating my neighbors, or should I keep quiet because I have no denite proof? I dont think the parents would believe me if I told them; they seem to think their child can do no wrong. Also, if I do le a police report and they nd out, Im afraid they will retaliate. H elp! NOT SURE WHAT TO DO DEAR NOT SURE: Dont keep quiet. Its important that the police be notied before the problem becomes worse. Call your local anonymous tip line and report where you have seen the suspicious activity and the needles. No personal information from you will be asked, and your privacy will be protected. DEAR ABBY: I had some time to think over the summer, and came to the realization that a baby my girlfriend had almost 30 years ago may be my daughter. Sally and I had a very intense, but shortlived relationship that blew up. About a year later we met again for lunch at the behest of a mutual friend. I dont remember the details, but I do r emember searching for an accurate way to compliment her. Because she had put on weight, the best I could come up with was you look good. She didnt hit me, but the conversation w ent downhill from there. S ally mentioned as we we re parting that she had given birth to a daughter. I havent heard from her since. I dont want to create problems for anybody, but Im curious. Im happily married and plan to stay that way. At the same time, Id welcome having a daughter. I have thought about sending cheek swabs and a check-off DNA test to the child along with a note suggesting she send our samples in for testing. But that could destroy whatever story she may have grown up with. Im at a loss here. I could use some advice from an outside authority. What do you think I should do? BLOCKHEAD IN CALIFORNIA DEAR B.H.: Its be en 30 years. The child is a woman now. Before you ri sk starting WWIII, why not contact the mother and ask if you are her daughters father, because its possible that you ARENT. DEAR ABBY: Im 20 years old and have never dated anyone. I have a lot of friends and do well in school and at work, and I try to be a good, kind, friendly person. What can I do to make myself datable? Am I missing some crucial step in how to become a girlfriend? OLD MAID IN ST. LOUIS DEAR OLD MAID: Becaus e I have never met yo u in person, I cant tell you what you might be doing that relegates you to the only as a friend category. However, some of your guy friends might be able to tell you. And you should also solicit some tips from your girlfriends. A nd the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. Luke 18:13 He re is the prayer that brings the peace. Pray it now! When we acknowledge to God what we are. He immediately shows us what He will do. Jesus said, H im that cometh to me I will in no way cast out.
