Longtime carpenter Jeff Filock once shot a 3 12-inch nail into his head with a nail-gun. It was a mistake. The nail went through the roof of his mouth and lodged in the nasal cavity between his eye sockets. It did no permanent damage, except for a slight bump on the bridge of his nose that you can barely see. But Filock has the X-rays to prove it believe it or not! and a good story to boot. Despite this misshot, Filock is an excellent carpenter: Hes made a good living at it for three decades. And his latest project is a head-turner, too. Filock is putting the nishing touches on a vardo, a wooden caravan of the type that became popular among Romani gypsies in the 19th century. First step was to buy a heavy-duty trailer with dual axles. From the base came wooden walls, pitched out at a slight angle to give it a particularly unusual look. The roof is curved. Double windows are built into the sides, and another is cut in the front. Attached to the green exterior walls are a carved wooden pelican, heron, gator, bobcat, sea turtle and various sh. Two dolphins dive out of the rear rooine. To enter, walk up a ramp and through Dutch doors. The interior has natural light from the windows and lantern-style lamps on the walls. The vardo is wired for 100-amp service. The ceiling has wooden beams. Jeff has yet to install a stove, refrigerator, counter and sink. In the back is a high platform for a queen-sized bed and enough room beneath for storage and their dog, Buddha. Its all very whimsical, as Jeff puts it. And just plain cool. Who wouldnt want to hit the road towing a 7-foot by 16-foot, wooden, gypsy caravan? I see people retired with $250,000 RVs and I think, thats ne. Viking grills and big-screen TVs. But to me thats not really camping. Jeff and wife Peggy moved to Englewood from Cattaraugus in western New York, 50 miles south of Buffalo. She came down rst on a Christmas trip in 2008, then returned home and told Jeff, By next Christmas Im going to be living there. Close. She moved down full time in 2010. Jeff shuttled back and forth, and decided last winter to sell the remote New York homestead he built from the ground up. (It never stops snowing, Jeff said. It snows from morning to morning. Its like The Shining.) Jeff started his vardo-building project, inspired by a caravan he saw at a local park. Recently, the couple moved to a house they bought on busy Old Englewood Road. Jeff and Peggy plan to open an art gallery at the new house. Jeff will sell his carved, painted wooden animals and sh the same kind that adorn the caravan. Peggy creates nautical folk art. The vardo, parked in the front yard, may also become a baked goods and coffee shop. Peggy said she always wanted to open a coffee shop. Its already a big roadside attraction. You couldnt pull in anywhere where 10 people wouldnt come up and say, What the heck, Jeff said. Its an incredible ice-breaker. Added Peggy, Its like a good-looking man with a puppy, you know? Everybody just wants to talk to him. Stephen Baumann is a member of the Suns editorial board. If you or someone you know has a story to share, contact him at sbaumann@sun-herald.com, or call 941-681-3003.This vardo turns heads Brandy Lee Lowe spent much of Friday in the Charlotte County Jail after being arrested by the Punta Gorda Police Department. The arrest happened in front of her 11-year-old son. But Lowe, 31, of Port Charlotte, hadnt actually committed a crime. As it turns out, police were looking for a suspected shoplifter with the same name. Lowe, who had gone to the PGPD to le a missing person report on her mother, soon found herself in handcuffs. Ive never been arrested before, she said. Im very mad. I was scared. The other Lowe has a warrant for her arrest out of Lake County. She is wanted for shoplifting and providing false information to law enforcement. She doesnt look anything like me, said Lowe. PGPD Police Chief Albert Butch Arenal said Monday he doesnt blame the arresting ofcer Bonnie Sills or anyone else in the department. It looks like a good arrest from the information the ofcers had, he said. I cant fault the ofcers. A report led by the PGPD notes, the Social Security number, address and description of the local Lowe was conrmed as matching those of the Lowe with the warrant. It looks like someone stole her identity, said Arenal. This would be the rst case I can think of where an arrest was made because of ID theft. But the Lowes arent buying it. I was able to do a quick Google search on my phone, said the local Lowes brother, Kenny Lowe. He spent Friday night with other family members trying to convince authorities they had jailed the wrong person. I looked on the Lake County Sheriffs Ofce website and there comes up A case of mistaken identityBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERWoman spends hours in jail after mixupIDENTITY | 6 PUNTA GORDA Lt. Greg Bueno of the Florida Highway Patrol wants every one to have a happy and safe new year, and he reminded drivers that ofcers from various agencies will be out in force to ensure that motorists obey the law. Troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol will be conducting saturation patrols in Manatee, Lee and Collier counties, Bueno said. Troopers will also be out and about in Charlotte County keeping an eye open for impaired and aggressive drivers, he said. Saturation patrols are when a large number of ofcers are moving through specic areas looking for drivers breaking the law, Bueno said. Its New Years Eve and people are going to be going to parties and we want to make sure the driving public reaches their destinations safely, he said. Bueno hopes the saturation patrols, called wolf packs, along with the increased presence in Charlotte County will deter people from driving while intoxicated. We want to take a proactive approach and keep impaired drivers off the roads, he said. Thats much better than having to show up at a crash and pick up the pieces. Alcohol-related trafc fatalities jump during the Christmas/New Years holiday season, according to statistics provided by the National Safety Council. According to the agency, around 42 percent of all trafc fatalities on New Years involve a driver impaired by alcohol. Those statistics are based on data collected from 2007 to 2010.Officers on the lookout for intoxicated driversBy PAUL FALLON SUN CORRESPONDENTLOOKOUT | 6MURDOCK On the heels of critical comments directed at the building division during Charlotte Assembly 2013, county ofcials are launching a multi-pronged program aimed at improving procedures and making them more customer-friendly. The proposed changes, some already in place, will have a signicant impact on how programs and services are provided, said Claire Jubb, customer service manager for county construction services. We understand that our market is very reliant on us to give very good service, Jubb said. So were constantly changing things trying to improve ourselves. The review was prompted, in part, by a nal policy statement to emerge from Octobers Charlotte Assembly, which called for reforms in building/ construction services. Specically, assembly members said there is a need for less stringent building code, building construction and permitting requirements. Moreover, employees were characterized as either untrained or uncaring, in need of more accountability and performance-based evaluations. One key change is the hiring of a new permitting/development ombudsman, who serves as a troubleshooter, facilitator and, perhaps most importantly, voice of the people. Its being an advocate of information, said Don Jascomb, who started in the newly created position two months ago. Im trying to look for opportunities to streamline and make things ow a little better. Jascomb explained that an efcient operation takes into account the type of customer, whether they are a rst-time homeowner doing some remodeling or Open for Business more than a sloganBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERSLOGAN | 6 SteveBAUMANNCOLUMNISTLIFE STORIESEditors note: The Sun nishes recapping its top stories of 2013 today.

Our Town Page 4 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, December 31, 2013 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS For those who didnt find everything they wanted under the Christmas tree, the Charlotte County Library System is offer ing something special to help ring in the New Year. Would you believe hundreds of thousands of movies, TV shows, audiobooks and music albums? Absolutely free. Library patrons now have online and mobile access to 300,000 titles through a new partnership with hoopla digital, a service provided to public libraries across the country. Charlotte County is the second library system in Florida to offer this resource. This will be invaluable to us and to our users, said Anne Shepherd, library division manager. It actually extends our collection. Starting Dec. 26, CCLS cardholders are able to download the free hoopla digital mobile app on their Android or IOS device, or simply by going to the library website (charlottecountyfl.com/ Library/) and clicking on the hoopla icon. Then users can browse or search available titles or view shelves of various genres (Top Titles, Just Added, etc.) to borrow for instant streaming or temporary downloading to their smartphones, tablets, desktop computers and Apple TV. Another advantage is that patrons can listen to the music before hitting borrow to see if they want to download it, or maybe even purchase it elsewhere. And all materials have simultaneous multiple use, meaning even the most popular items will be available any time day or night. All that is needed by users is a current CCLS library card and email address. Its very user-friendly and easy to navigate, said Pauline Klein, librarian supervisor. Patrons can choose from among 30,000 movies and TV shows, most of which are between three and five years old, with an estimated 80 percent of video content not available on Netflix. These items can be bor rowed for three days. Previously, the library offered 17,000 movies, but many of them were duplicates. The hoopla music catalog, which is mostly downloadable, includes older albums as well as more recent issues, including brand-new releases, and can be checked out for seven days. The 10,000 available audiobook titles can be retained for 21 days. Prior to hoopla, 75 per cent of the librarys audiobooks were out in circulation at any one time. When the check-out time is up, the bor rowed material disappears from the device, so there are no late fees. Users cannot copy or burn the downloadable titles and hoopla is not available on the public computers in the library. The library allows for checking out up to eight items per patron per month, which ensures that materials remain available for customers, Shepherd said. There is also a countdown feature, letting users know how much time they have left before the borrowed materials expire. CCLS invested a total of $25,000 for a one-year contract with hoopla, she explained, which is budgeted for the month and divided into a daily amount of about $65. If the daily limit is reached, the patron will be told the service is unavailable until the next day. If the full daily amount is not used, it is carried over to the next day, etc. The price of the items range from 99 cents to $2.99, drawn from the librarys account. Hoopla may even end up saving the library money by alleviating the need to purchase hard copies of the materials, Klein said. Videos, in particular, are expensive to replace when they are damaged or lost. We see it as a budget savings, Klein said. Shepherd added that the digital downloads also may reduce waiting lists for specif ic items by offering a more convenient, and technologically advanced, alternative. I dont see how this can miss being a big hit, Shepherd said. About the only negative is that you dont have to come to the library to use it. We love it when people come to the library.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comLibrary unwraps 300,000 giftsBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERNEW YEARS CLOSURESIn observance of the New Years Day holiday, all Charlotte County government business offices and Punta Gorda city offices, along with all county and circuit courts, will be closed Wednesday.

No heavy lifting is required, but there will be a lot of bending and stooping. Most volunteers commit to one or two days a week, for a few hours in the morning.

Our Town Page 6 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, December 31, 2013 FROM PAGE ONE a professional contractor with a more complex project in hand. I deal with multifaceted groups, he said. You need a different approach with different groups; sometimes people need a little more hand-holding. Other major improvements also are planned, with the goal of creating a mindset among employees to provide programs and services in a courteous, responsive and proactive manner. And several changes are intended to enhance the online experience. These revisions include allowing Charlotte County Utilities bill payments online and a soon-to-be-updated website for permitting and licensing that will include electronic document review, custom apps for internal and external use, and real-time statistics, reports and lobby wait times. Other changes are small, such as greeting customers in the lobby, but all lend themselves to a better consumer experience, Jubb said. For many residents and businesses, the building/construction division is the face of the county. Due to the volume of work done by the divisions ve customer-service staff, this interaction goes a long way in shaping public perception of government operations. For example, in October the county issued 1,351 permits, or an average of 59 per day. In addition, there were nearly 2,500 customers served and 4,750 inspections completed during the month. To look at streamlining the process, the county formed a steering group comprised of Building Industry Oversight Committee members, frequent users of the department and staff. Their recommendations included additional staffing to meet increased demand, changes in lobby check-in procedure and expanded online services. Also, following an in-depth analysis of operations, the coming new year will usher in a countywide customer service program intended to further advance delivery of services, Jubb said. Its a constant, continuing process to improve customer ser vice, said Commissioner Tricia Duffy, but weve made big strides.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comSLOGANFROM PAGE 1 Capt. Tom Lewis of the Punta Gorda Police Department also said his ofcers will be out in force looking for impaired drivers during New Years. The department will also have an ofcer trained to recognize and test people suspected of being under the inuence of drugs out with patrols on the holiday, Lewis said. He has extensive training to evaluate potential drug intoxication, he said. He has been trained to perform medical assessments to see if someone is under the inuence of a narcotic and to recognize what type of narcotic the individual is using. Lewis pointed out that it is much easier for drivers partaking in the holiday spirit to call a taxi cab. Anyone convicted of a rst offense driving under the inuence charge could lose their license for up to a year, he said. They could also face a ne of up to $1,000 and be sentenced to up to six months in jail. Court costs and legal fees associated with the crime can sometimes reach up to $10,000, Lewis said. Its just so much cheaper and safer just to call a cab, he said. Capt. Michael Anderson, the commander for the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce Road Patrol Division, also encouraged drivers to stay safe during the holiday. Stay sober and stay safe, Anderson said in a prepared statement. Like the highway patrol and Punta Gorda Police Department, the sheriffs ofce will also have extra patrols out on New Years Eve, Anderson said. None of the agencies will be conducting sobriety checkpoints and will instead rely on patrols to deal with intoxicated drivers. Well have roving patrols out, Anderson said.LOOKOUTFROM PAGE 1The sheriff who began his career with the agency the same year as Wilson fought back tears during an emotional Aug. 6 press conference. Hes truly going to be missed, said Prummell. He was unique, one of a kind. Former Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Cameron echoed those statements later that day. Mike was a very good friend, he said. I loved him. He was like a brother. Wilson was responding to a domestic distur bance call shortly after 8 p.m. at a second-story unit of the Lakes of Tuscana Apartments off Veterans Boulevard in Port Charlotte. When he got to the stairs leading up to the apartment, Jay Vanko, 49, red one bullet from his 9 mm handgun down at Wilson. The shot just missed the deputys bulletproof vest. Vanko then fatally shot himself. Wilson was able to call for assistance before being taken to Peace River Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. Wilson was with the CCSO for 21 years half of his life. The community grieved together, but it also rallied to show appreciation for the fallen ofcer and support for his family and the Sheriffs Ofce. Just a few hours following Wilsons death, Relinda Broom, along with her husband Ted, came up with an idea for residents and community members to show support: Paint the Town Blue. Ribbons hung from lamp posts, street signs, buildings, bridges and even trees. Everywhere. And, donations from residents poured in to help the Wilsons. Dozens of businesses held fundraisers and charity events to help the cause in the days, weeks and months following Wilsons passing. At a somber viewing on Aug. 9, family, friends, neighbors and residents said their goodbyes. Then on Saturday, Aug. 10, an unforgettable funeral was held for the unforgettable hero. Over 2,000 packed into the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center. Thousands more watched on TV from home. Law enforcement personnel from agencies across the state came to Charlotte. Gov. Rick Scott was in attendance. He said Wilson made the ultimate sacrice and will never be forgotten. More than 500 police, re, EMS and county vehicles were part of a funeral procession that snaked through Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda. People many holding American ags lined the streets to greet the motorcade, waving to the cruisers and trucks as they slowly passed with their lights ashing and sirens blaring. It would be Wilsons last ride around the county, which he helped keep safe for over two decades. County ofcials presented a proclamation declaring Nov. 25 what would have been Wilsons 43rd birthday as Sgt. Mike Wilson Day. The installation of a commemorative plaque near the place where Wilson was killed may be considered. Joanne Wilson, Mikes widow, wrote a letter to share with the community. It was received in late August and, in part, read: Words cant express my gratitude for the overwhelming support my children and I have received since the Aug. 5 death of my beloved husband.

Michael Wilson.Editors note: The Sun nishes recapping its top stories of 2013 today. ENGLEWOOD Patients of the Charlotte County Health Departments clinic now have to travel to the Community Health Center of North Port. The Charlotte County Health Department closed the clinic on San Casa Drive Aug. 31. However, the all-volunteer, nonprot Englewood Community Care Clinic will continue to operate from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday and Thursday evenings at the San Casa facility. The ECCC only accepts walk-in patients. This summer Charlotte County commissioners said they did not want to leave Englewoods health department patients stranded. Commissioner Bill Truex said he had been working with the federally qualied North Port clinic, Englewood Community Hospital, and other health care professionals on a long-range health care solution for Englewoods lower income and uninsured residents. Truex told the other commissioners more than 900 people with Englewood ZIP codes were already patients at the North Port clinic. How many more Englewood patients will end up in North Port after the San Casa clinic closes has yet to be determined, Truex said. In the interim, commissioners agreed to have county staff arrange transportation to the North Port clinic at 6950 Outreach Way. The North Port clinic will not accept walkin patients. Anyone wanting care will rst have to schedule an eligibility appointment. For an appointment, call 941-833-6296. The North Port clinic also does not serve patients 55 or older. Those patients are referred to the Senior Friendship Center for medical care. The senior center has had a standing policy where it only saw older adults who are Sarasota County residents. However, the center announced that it has modied its policy for older EnglewoodCharlotte County residents. Senior Friendship Centers Venice Clinic will accept qualied Charlotte County patients 50 and older who are referred to them from the North Port Clinic, said Peg Palmer, director of the Senior Friendship Centers Communications and Public Education. Fees are on a sliding scale, based on ability to pay. Those older adults not receiving Medicaid or Medicare not referred to the North Port clinic or the senior center will have to nd their own alternative, including considering care at the free Englewood Community Care Clinic or the Virginia B. Andes free clinic in Port Charlotte. Beth Harrison, executive director of the Englewood Community Care Clinic, said its hard to gauge the impact of what the closing of Charlotte County Health Department Clinic will be. In the last couple of months, weve been OK as far as volunteers, Harrison said. Its been an interesting past few weeks, since we havent seen increased volume. Its hard to say how much the other clinics closing will impact our volume. Looking ahead, Harrison said, Wed like to have three or four in any combination of volunteer physicians, physician assistants and registered nurse practitioners so that we could stay open all day. Harrison said Community Care Clinic has served 2,472 visits since opening in January 2012. The clinic encourages doctors and other health care professionals to volunteer. The ECCC has received calls from retired medical professionals who want to volunteer but no longer have the proper credentials. Volunteers must have an active license, Harrison said.

Though their hair is somewhat similar and they are both white, the Lake County Lowe is listed at 5-foot-7, 141 pounds and was born in December 1988, according to her last booking sheet from Lake County. The Port Charlotte Lowe is 5-foot-4, 220 pounds and was born in August 1982, according to the PGPD report. The PGPD noted the discrepancy in the date of birth. Lt. Joe King said it should be noted the Lake County Lowe is wanted for lying to the police and it isnt uncommon for suspects to provide a false date of birth. Its all very unfortunate, said King. The Lowes are speaking with their attorneys. Im not against the police department; I appreciate what they do, said Lowes mother, Dapphney Springer. But I am concerned about what happened to my daughter. I was beside myself. The local Brandy Lowe, a single mother and waitress, had gone to the PGPD Friday to le a missing person report after she hadnt heard from Springer in about a day. (Springer says she was at a casino and lost track of time and had a lot of missed calls.) However, the PGPD noticed the name Brandy Lee Lowe. They called me back to the station, said the local Lowe. They were showing me all this paperwork, and Im like, Thats not me. In the end, Lowe was booked at the Charlotte County Jail around 2 p.m. She was nally let out shortly before midnight. The warrant included photos showing the Lake County Lowe had a tattoo on her ankle, but the Port Charlotte Lowe had no such tattoo. The only thing that was the same was her name, said the local Lowe. Had the mistake not been uncovered, the Port Charlotte Lowe would have faced extradition to Lake County, where she would have faced a judges order of 29 days of incar ceration without bond. Lake County ofcials hadnt heard about the incident, so they were unable to comment Monday. The Lake County Lowe is still not in custody.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comIDENTITYFROM PAGE 1 Football, cheer registrations setThe Florida Spring Youth Football League will hold registrations for football and cheer from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Jan. 6, 2014, at the Charlotte Warriors home eld, 2610 Carmalita St., Punta Gorda.

The crash resulted in the death of Lee Hollis, 54, the driver of the per sonal watercraft, severe injuries to a 40-year-old woman who was with him, and minor injuries to Bruce Vilardi, 43, the captain of the boat, and the two of Vilardis passengers. W. Cort Frohlich, an attorney representing Hollis family, said Hollis was cremated, and his remains were own to his home in Kansas, where his family held a funeral service on Saturday. Frohlich said he and the Hollis family are looking into information collected by authorities regarding the crash before they decide wheth er to take legal action. Hollis was an attorney in Leawood, Kan. I would say its fairly likely (that legal actions will be taken) given what we know so far, but we wont make that determination until our investigation is complete, Frohlich said. According to a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission report, the crash took place near Stump Pass as both the boat, a 2012 21-foot Nautic Star, and the personal watercraft, a 2006 10-foot Bombardier, were headed south in the Intracoastal Waterway toward the pass. The report states the personal watercraft was accelerating to pass the boat on the right. The boat turned right and the two vehicles collided. FWC spokesman Gary Morse conrmed last week the FWC suspects alcohol is suspected as a factor in the collision. Morse did not say who was suspected to have been drinking. The FWC could not provide additional information Monday. However, Frohlich said we are certain that no alcohol had been consumed by Mr. Hollis or his sons. Frohlich said Hollis wife saw a toxicology report which showed no alcohol in Hollis system after the crash. In addition, she told Frohlich that Hollis didnt drink. The Sun was unable to reach anyone aboard the boat for comment.Safety concernsThe crash has reinvigorated the issue of boater safety. Steven Viveiros, of Neptune Boat Rentals at the Stump Pass Marina, said last week would-be boat renters underestimate the complexity of navigating a boat. Its like getting in a car and never driving. What is it? Gas, brake and steering? I can do that but theres more to it, Viveiros said. Of personal watercraft, Viveiros said Im not a Jet Ski fan at all. I lost a friend on one. However, some enthusiasts dont feel personal watercraft are as risky as they are perceived to be. Brian King, owner of Island Jet Ski at 1450 Beach Road, Englewood, stored and maintained the personal watercraft owned by Hollis and his family. King said there is a very low percentage of incidents among personal watercraft. Its generally an extremely safe sport. King, whose business rents personal watercraft, said state regulations require him to give basic navigation instructions, carry $1 million in liability insurance, screen renters with a boating test, and demand proof of boating safety education and matching photo ID for renters under 25. If we have a feeling theyre not listening to what were telling them, then we absolutely turn people away and we have turned them away. King said. In addition to the regular screening measures, we do a lot of escorted rides and were doing it more and more it gives you better peace of mind.Email: iross@sun-herald.comQuestions remain in boat crashBy IAN ROSSSTAFF WRITERPERSONAL WATERCRAFT SAFETY STATISTICSThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission compiles a yearly file of boating accident statistics available on www.myfwc.com. The FWCs 2012 Boating Acci dents Statistics document states that in 2012, the most recent year for which data is available, there were 112,886 personal watercraft registered in the state of Florida, 132recorded accidents and seven fatalities. Statewide, there was an accident rate of one accident for every 855 personal watercraft registered. In Charlotte County, the accident rate was one per 1,486.

PORT CHARLOTTE Deputies responding to a convenience store in reference to a man who pulled a gun out learned the suspect also was carrying some funny money, according to the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office. Authorities were dispatched around 10:30 p.m. Friday to the Circle K near the intersection of Cornelius Drive and Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte. Eric Maroney, 40, of the 4700 block of Pocatella Avenue in Port Charlotte, was arrested on a charge of possessing a concealed weapon, the report shows, so he was searched. Deputies found seven sheets of fake $1, $5, $10 and $20 bills. Maroney who authorities noted has been arrested in North Port and Sarasota on charges of uttering counterfeit bills was additionally charged with possessing a counterfeit payment instrument in relation to Fridays incident. He was being held Monday at the Charlotte County Jail on $15,000 bond.Report: Attacker thought victim was the devilA woman and her husband enjoying a Friday afternoon at their home on Page Street in Port Charlotte had left their door open because the weather was so nice. What wasnt so nice was the man who was yelling incoherently, calling (one of the victims), the car and other objects the Devil before attacking them, according to the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office. When the woman tried to shut their front door, James Michael Burrell, 31, of the 21400 block of Shannon Avenue in Port Charlotte, spit at her, the report shows. Burrell allegedly barged through the closed and locked door, which hit the woman in the head. Burrell left after the husband retrieved his gun for protection. Deputies arrived and found Burrell walking down a nearby street and arrested him. Burrell was charged with burglary and bur glary with battery. He was being held Monday at the Charlotte County Jail without bond.Report: Two cited for illegal nettingENGLEWOOD Two men were cited Dec. 23 for commercial netting inside Coral Creek, according to the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office.

VENICE Cornholers statewide will descend on Venice this summer to partake in their chosen pastime playing the game of cornhole. The American Cornhole Organizations sanctioned Florida championship tour nament and festival will take place this summer at the Venice Community Center. Venice City Council members sheepishly approved the special event last month. Its unfortunate, the dual meaning, said Mayor John Holic. To me, its a neat thing to have an American playoff of a widely popular game right here in Venice in the middle of the summer when we need people the most occupying restaurants, hotels and everything else. I love to see a major event from out of town come into the city. Were small. To have a major event like the NCAA Rowing Championships in Sarasota would be almost impossible to do here. Im delighted to have some of the more minor, but important, events. Well take those all day long, Holic said. The festival is scheduled to begin on June 20, from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. and all day on June 21. The game involves throwing, or pitching, a bean bag filled with corn into a small hole in the center of a tilted board from 30 feet. A bag in the hole receives three points. A bag that lands on the platform with a portion resting over the hole receives one point. It takes 21 points to win the game. Aside from the humor and banter associated with playing the game, the tournament is designed to be a family affair, with open courts for cornhole play, free to the public. There will be optional pay-as-you-play luck of the draw games, and game challenges open to the public and nonmembers. Players in the singles and doubles championship must be ACO members, with a maximum of 160 singles contestants and 160 doubles teams participating. Champions earn Golden Tickets to the ACO World Championships. For organizers, its another chance to show off the citys barbecue prowess. Suncoast BBQ Bash organizers will be contacted to rally the BBQ troops and provide food during the two-day event.Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comNational cornhole festival to be held in VeniceBy GREG GILESSTAFF WRITER COURTESY PHOTOThe American Cornhole Organization has sanctioned a state championship tournament in Venice next year.

Radel should lead reform ght Families shouldnt be denied help Politicians have lost their moral compassEditor: Yes, Virginia, there are many Santas right here in Charlotte County. As chairperson of the Baker Center social committee, I wanted the staff to experience an indescribable holiday party. On Dec. 6, we held our party thanks to community Santas. Our rst Santa was Carla Scott of the Freeman House in Punta Gorda. She opened her doors for our party location. The next Santa was Nelson Silverstein, manager of the Applebees located on Kings Highway. Nelson and his staff donated all the delicious food for our party. Our third Santa was Charlotte Highs Jazz Band under the direction of Paul Montanari. They rocked the party with a selection of holiday favorites. Thank you for sharing your time and talent. Julie Perkins of Gladrick Florist Shoppe was our fourth Santa. Julie donated a beautiful oral centerpiece for our table that included fresh owers and evergreens. I would also like to thank Santas helpers: Bruce Sukennikoff, James McKenna and C.J. Lisson for their muscle power. I would like to thank the three little elves, Yolanda Platt, Diane Wallace and Cyndee Oathout. Without their help, the party could not have happened. I would like to thank Sugar & Spice elf Nick Sunseri who made our party a whole lot sweeter by donating cakes for the party. And last but not least, thank you to Alan Holback and Rich Weingarten, who made it all seem so real. Thank you to everyone.Sue Weingarten Port CharlotteEditor: The people who complain in Punta Gorda about the plane noise should live in Park Ridge, Ill. Our son lives in Park Ridge adjacent to OHare International Airport. One of the incoming paths is directly over their house. The planes are so low you can read all the numbers and letters on the underside. When outside, you cannot talk or hear anyone when the planes are going over because of the noise. At busy times, a plane ies overhead about every eight to 10 minutes, probably more than 20 a day. I dont know Editor: Did the Sun drop the ball by not covering two of the greatest spectator events on Charlotte Harbor? On Dec. 15, the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce hosted the Lighted Boat Parade out of Edgewater Lake in Port Charlotte. Along the parade route, there were thousands of spectators cheering and wishing all the boats a Merry Christmas. On Dec. 21, the Punta Gorda Isles Rim Canal Committee, led by Tom Little, held another lighted boat parade traveling over seven miles through the canals of Punta Gorda Isles where thousands of spectators enjoyed the parade. Almost every lot was lled with people watching. There were so many people coming into the area to join the festivities that there was a major trafc jam at Bal Harbor Boulevard and Aqui Esta Drive. The police department sent a squad car to direct trafc. The two parades hosted over 10,000 spectators. Thanks goes out to the captains and crew for lighting up the boats. While Im at it, why is Charlotte County spending one-quarter million dollars to promote off-shore power boat racing off Manasota Key, which a good portion of is in Sarasota County? Do you think the boat owners, crews and spectators are going to come back to Charlotte County to spend their money on hotels and restaurants in Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda when there are many hotels and restaurants just north in Venice and Sarasota? Hey, commissioner, Charlotte Harbor is the best water venue in the state and one of the 10 best boating waters in the country.Ed Brauer Port CharlotteEditor: After listening to congressman Radel explain once again that cocaine was not the problem, alcohol was, it nally dawned on me that all of the people who are locked up for cocaine, heroin, crack, meth and pills are probably just misunderstood and it is just an alcohol problem. Editor: Having read a recent letter to the editor, I have to say Scrooge and the Grinch both opened their hearts to the world around them and helped out families. This writer is really worse. Is he saying homeless families should not be allowed near a church or play in our public parks or go to school? I would welcome a family shelter in my backyard if it would help get children a safe place to be. But you would rather have a rundown, boarded-up complex that attracts rats, vagrants and devalues your property than to put out a helping hand to a family in need. Shame on you. You need to go to some of the open meetings and see what it is really all about. Better yet, spend some time helping at one of the food banks. Open your eyes to the world around you. There are families who just need a hand up to get back on their feet again. Joseph was a carpenter and so were some of these fathers until the work dried up. Some work for minimum wage. They are the working poor. You try living on $7.50 an hour with a wife and children to feed. They are trying. The Englewood I grew up in is a far different place from what it is today, where we all joined together and helped each other. I choose to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.Lorna Hunter EnglewoodEditor: Our great country is in serious trouble. We have a dysfunctional federal government run by a group of politicians who no longer represent the people who elected them. Our politicians have lost their moral compass.

You should be glad to have an air eld here for employment of local people.

I believe that with his leader ship and help we could possibly close down half of the prisons in Florida and thus save the taxpayers millions of dollars.Harry J. Thomas Punta Gordasupport their candidates, how can they do so without being slaves to their large donors? Politicians running for ofce must also accept obscene amounts of money from individuals, PACs, and their own national committees. How can they not be beholden to their largest supporters and their national committees? Your $25 and $50 donations mean nothing to them as far as inuencing their legislative efforts. Only the big bucks count when they are making their decisions. Their national committee is their guiding inuence. They supply them with campaign speakers, endorsements, television and radio ads, and MONEY as needed in their local campaigns. The truth is that it has all come down to MONEY needed for election or re-election. The day elected ofcials are sworn into ofce is the day they must start raising MONEY for their re-election. They are emotionally torn asunder by their indebtedness to their national committees, their corporate and union contributors, the PACs that supported them, and constituents to whom they cannot possibly keep their promises. There is no room for intellectual honesty or even moral guidance. We are governed by self-serving politicians whose only goal is to maintain their overblown stature at any cost.Martin Mandel EnglewoodEditor: Just a few thoughts about how badly President Obama ruined 2013. Stock market at an all-time high. Unemployment lowest in years. Home prices up 20-30 per cent. New home building highest in over ve years. More troops coming home from war. Health insurance for everyone becoming a reality. Health insurance costs rising at a slower pace than anytime in the past 20 years. Foreclosures slowing nationwide. We can hope and pray the remaining three years of his administration go just as badly as the rst ve did.Joseph Del Bonis Rotonda WestWishing for more bad yearsEditor: Ive learned from reading letters to the editor that bad intelligence during the Bush administration was somehow the reason for the Pat Tillman and Jessica Lynch lies, no-bid Halliburton contracts, Blackwater, Abu Ghraib, the nearly $1 trillion underestimation for the cost of the war in Iraq, the disbanding of the Iraq army at a crucial time and our troops given unarmored equipment causing many unnecessary deaths. If the intelligence agencies are to blame for Iraq, then logically, the State Department, IRS and DHLS are to blame for Benghazi, the IRS non-scandal and Fast & Furious. It is constantly being said that many Democrats voted for the war, as well. Was this not the time that we kept on hearing from the administration that if youre not with us youre against us? And as I recall, the people who stood by their convictions in opposition to the war in Iraq were labeled as weak on terror and soft on defense by the Bush administration. If the war in Iraq had been a success, I assume that we would not be reading in the letters that any Democrats vot ed for the war. What say you? From the people who believe in personal responsibility.John Davidson PlacidaGleanings from the letters page | Our view2014 successes will determine countys futureOUR POSITION: Delivering Parkside progress and sales tax success will be top priorities in 2014.When 2014 arrives at the stroke of midnight, the clock starts ticking on a number of programs and projects that will transform Charlotte County for the better or the worse, depending on how they are executed. On Sunday we reviewed the updating of the countys land development regulations and its parks master plan. Today we look at the Parkside Community Redevelopment Area and Novembers sales tax extension referendum. The Parkside CRA was created by the Charlotte County Commission in September 2010 to revitalize the neglected and blight ed core of the original General Development Corporation community of Port Charlotte. Bounded by U.S. 41, Midway Boulevard and the Fordham and Morningstar waterways, the district suffered from high crime, countless code violations, an outdated transportation system and neglected parks. Community cleanups, county code enforcement crackdowns and a concerted effort by the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce to target crime in the district have made marked progress. But administrative turnover, including the departure of the plans architect and champion Jim Fendrick, has handicapped the initiative. Frustratingly long planning and design timelines for projects approved by the board the Elkcam multi-use path and Harbor Boulevard leave the impression that nothing is happening. (The board just awarded the design/ permitting bid for the Harbor Boulevard makeover in November.) There is still no concrete plan for redoing McGuire and Lake Betty parks, both of which were identied in the CRA master plan for upgrades and additional amenities. We know government moves slowly, but the commission has to shoulder much of the blame for the slow roll-out. It seldom convenes as the CRA board. In Punta Gorda, the CRA board meets monthly. Some agendas are light, but theres no escaping the regularity if things start to go sideways or backwards. The delay on Harbor Boulevard is directly due to a lack of commission oversight. That must change in 2014 and beyond. Things will certainly change come November, when voters are asked to extend the one-cent sales tax. Theres no escaping the impact $180 million over 10 years will have on the county budget. If its there, roads, parks and other infrastructure and amenities will get built. If its not, many projects simply wont get done and those that are will be funded through property taxes, gas taxes, impact fees and the countys share of state sales taxes. County administration has developed a detailed plan to reach out to residents, business organizations and homeowner and civic groups to explain what the sales tax has accomplished and what the extension will deliver. A project list is being assembled that touches all areas of the county. The vote will be closer than it should be. Charlotte County has endured ve years of delayed projects, staff and program cuts, under investment in economic and tourism development and costly legal setbacks. A loss on the sales tax vote will cripple the county budget for the next decade, almost certainly trigger an ad valorem tax hike and gut most, if not all, investment in parks and other amenities. 2014 will be a pivotal year for the county and go a long way toward determining what kind of place we live and work in for years to come. 10 t120i3Dist.by KYg FcotwsRESOI..UTC.

The Sun /Tuesday, December 31, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 11 VIEWPOINTThe year-end review required of all columnists inevitably brings us to the mailbag and a few clarifications. For the record, I read my mail but never online comments. Anonymity liberates hostility, weve learned, and the customary online abuse riot undermines the grandiosity required to write opinion. But dont stop! For some reason, my family thinks the comments are a hoot. The mail that does reach my inbox is about evenly split between fans and not-so-fans. Ive concluded that there must be a repository of letter-to-columnist templates out there somewhere. About 70 percent of missives begin with one of the following: I usually stop reading your column after the first sentence, but I rarely agree with you, but I am a fan you knew this was coming but And this just in. Im not sure how columnists like you who write for a living get paid. KP: Usually by direct deposit. Otherwise, my response to all of the above: So whaddya want for a buck? A few days ago, a letter arrived asking me whether I ever considered that I might be wrong? My one-word response: Constantly. Which is true, up to a point. A columnist couldnt write if she thought she were wrong, right? But oftentimes we write to find out what we think, and sometimes we surprise ourselves. Many times I wish I thought other wise, since life would be so much easier, but then wed be bored. Sometimes, yes, I even change my mind. When youve written columns as long as I have (26 or 27 years, I cant remember), youd best change your mind or admit that you never trouble yourself with thinking. Certitude is a mask one dons only for deadlines, after which, feet on desk, one ruminates on the source of such certitude. This, of course, leads to crippling self-doubt, which in turn may lead to drinking or, worse, yoga. For my own edification, a few words about the differences between online writing and newspaper writing. Like the difference between the male and female sexual appetites (just to keep you interested), one is a microwave, the other a crockpot. Online writers zip and zap across the digital realm in real time, sometimes accelerating before news breaks. Newspaper writers, especially columnists, tend to simmer. Youll notice at this point that columnists tend to digress. They also generalize because, we must. Its our nature. We dont care that some females have appetites equal to males. If three is a trend, most is enough to generalize. Plus, we are easily bored (note the constant imperative to not be bored), and nothing is more tedious than punctiliousness. On the other hand, using a word like punctiliousness can make one want to smoke a cigarette afterward. Back to the matter of differences. Because of print deadlines, I typically write two to three days before a column appears in print. Thus, I have to consider on Thursday what might still be of interest by Sunday. Though one is, therefore, always late to the game, I can think of few commentaries that dont benefit from a few days simmer. Another difference has to do with stan dards. Newspaper tradition requires that we heed the family rule: What is appropriate for family consumption, especially on Sunday mornings? This mandate was born (ages ago) of the desire never to offend anyone, which can make for some rather arid reading and writing that doesnt swell ones breast. One must be clever enough to select words that sneak past the kiddies, who, having wearied of FaceTime twerking, might accidentally trip over a grown-up thought. Another frequent reader comment: Nice job, but you failed to mention, or You left out KP: Yes, but columnists are strictly held to a non-negotiable word count in my case, 750 and not a definite article more. My definition of a column, soon to be a book title, is: A Sliver of a Slice of a Piece of a Moment. It is a glimpse of an insight viewed through the prism of anothers tenure on Earth, served with trepidation and self-flagellating humility. This is to say, thanks for the memories, the corrected syntax and the astute observations about my laxity and bombast, and special gratitude to those (you know who you are) who shared often-brilliant insights through their own tenured prism. I couldnt do it without you. Cheers! Kathleen Parker is a Washington Post columnist. Readers may reach her at kathleenparker@ washpost.com. Thanks for reading and writing Kathleen Parker To err is human. To err twice a week, you have to be a columnist. In 2012, I cemented my reputation as a pundit by making some notable blunders predicting, for example, that the presidential election would be too close to call. The race was unpredictable, I wrote, razor close. President Obama won by a healthy margin, youll recall. As for unpredictable, a vocal legion of political scientists pointed out (a little gracelessly, I thought) that they had predicted the result all along. Surely, I consoled myself, 2013 would be better. A year without a presidential election seemed certain to provide fewer oppor tunities for errors that would require an endof-the-year apology. But as it turned out, my crystal ball went cloudy even before January was over. As Obamas inauguration neared, I wrote optimistically about how both sides in Washington had learned important lessons. After four years, I noted, the president was a very different politician from before: more realistic, more skilled and equipped with a resounding mandate from his election victory. His opponents were wiser too, I opined. Chastened by defeat, a smarter Republican Party knew that it needed to change course to appeal to women, young people and Latinos. I even ventured that a grand bargain a deal that would raise taxes, cut spending and trim the federal deficit was more possible this year than any time since 2010. Theres been gradual movement toward the center on the substance of the budget as well as the politics, I wrote. Leaders on both sides know how to get to an agreement or, more precisely, how not to get there because theyve tried so many routes before. Both sides in the fight are older, sadder and wiser. Obama must have agreed because he devoted several evenings to long dinners with Republican senators in pursuit of that elusive bargain. Alas, we were both wrong. The bipartisan moment never came. A modest economic upturn made the deficit a little smaller, and the momentum toward a compromise collapsed. By October, my smarter Republican Party had fallen back under the tea partys spell, blundering into a 16-day government shutdown and driving its standing in the polls to record lows. And that skillful, seasoned president? His biggest legislative priorities immigration reform and gun control stalled. Even worse, he forgot to appoint a skilled manager to launch his most important domestic program, the Affordable Care Act, and failed to warn that his promise that every one could keep their health insurance came with exceptions. Like Congress, Obama ended the year with some of his worst ratings ever. In at least one instance, though, I was happy to be wrong. Early in the year, I wrote that we were headed toward another crisis over Irans nuclear program, one that could lead to war. Instead, Iran elected a new president, Hassan Rouhani, who launched a charm offensive and sought to defuse the problem through negotiation. Its far from certain that the talks will produce an agreement, but talking is better than fighting. My track record identifying early trends for the 2016 election already looked spotty, two years before the opening rounds. I identified Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., as an upand-coming GOP talent, but then he announced his support for comprehensive immigration reform, and conser vatives denounced him. I described Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, as wacko like a fox, but then he helped lead the tea partys doomed charge into Octobers government shutdown. I owe foxes an apology. Nothing terrible has happened yet to a third GOP star I profiled, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, but if my record holds, he should stay away from open windows. So should Hillary Rodham Clinton, to whom I awarded the title of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. I did get some things right, though. I realized early that the House Republicans were going to be difficult for Speaker John A. Boehner to manage (OK, that was easy). I predicted correctly that Boehner wouldnt try to negotiate with Obama again; instead, hes going to concentrate on holding his party together. Even before the calamitous launch of Obamacare, I warned that the health care law would remain the focus of political battle and might not be accepted as settled law for years. And I was unfor tunately right about Obamas inconstant foreign policy, especially in Syria, where the presidents desire to push Bashar Assad out of power collided with his aversion to inter vening in somebody elses civil war. Obamas rhetoric tends to outrun his willingness to use U.S. power and thats a problem, because it can lead to dangerous misunderstandings, I wrote. He often sounds like his United Nations ambassador, Samantha Power, who has championed the idea of humanitarian intervention. But he more often acts like (George H.W. Bush aide) Brent Scowcroft who warned against unnecessary entanglements abroad. The year taught one more lesson: Politics and world affairs arent everything. Among readers, the most popular column I wrote was a tribute to my mother (and one-person focus group), Lois McManus, of Greenbrae, Calif. But even with my own mother, I couldnt get everything right. In the column about her, I reported that at the age of 87, she had decided to give her final piano concert. Thats what she said at the time. Wrong again! Shes 88 now and practicing for another performance. Doyle McManus is a columnist for The Los Angeles Times.

Our Town Page 12 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, December 31, 2013 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Editors note: The Sun nishes recapping its top stories of 2013 today. SARASOTA COUNTY A change came to the top of Sarasota County government in October, when county commissioners voted 4-1 to oust County Administrator Randall Reid from ofce. The decision came during a discussion of Reids performance evaluations, which spanned from April through September. Commissioners let Reid go for reasons including employee morale and budget concerns. They pointed to how Reid handled the July resignation of former chief nancial management ofcer Suzanne Gable, amid allegations that her CPA license was not current, as an example of shady leadership clouding his achievements. Commission Chairwoman Carolyn Mason, who had rated Reids performance as below average, had all but put the administrator on notice, stating she was concerned that he was no longer a good t for Sarasota County government. Commissioner Charles Hines was the swing vote, saying he didnt want to put the county in an awkward situation for a three-week period. (A vote of 3-2 would have required the issue of Reids job to come up in another meeting in three weeks time.) Commissioner Nora Patterson was the dissenting vote. She said she would have liked for him to have been able to stay on and correct problems pointed out by commissioners in their evaluations. Hired in January 2012 from Alachua County, Reid, 59, earned an annual salary of $190,000 with benets. Since he was red without cause, he will receive 20 weeks pay in a lump sum, which amounts to about $73,000. The 4-1 supermajority vote terminated Reids contract immediately, but he received two weeks pay on top of the lump sum. Reid said he was hopeful that he could continue to work with the county, but realized they had an important decision to make. Im proud of the job that weve done, Reid said from the dais. Ive served with some great employees that have gone through a very difcult time. We have great people here and I think if theyre given the right opportunity theyll be on the right track. Its been a pleasure working with you (the commission) and the public. Moments after the commissions decision, Reid stepped off the dais and left the chambers. He has not commented publicly on his dismissal. Commissioners appointed Deputy County Administrator Tom Harmer as interim county administrator. Harmer said his time so far in ofce has been busy, since hes dealt with 11 County Commission meetings and helped get the county to the end of the scal year. My goal was to move through the transition and make sure that we kept things going full-speed ahead, Harmer said. I think weve been doing that and making sure that day-to-day business is being handled. Harmer is helping lead the effort to balance the countys budget, which is facing a projected $18.6 million shortfall in two years. He said hes also focusing on big picture policy issues such as responsible customer service and capital projects around the county, and strategic planning. Commissioner Christine Robinson who had also rated Reids performance as below average said the atmosphere within the county has completely changed for the better during Harmers two months at the helm. Its taken a dramatic turn for the positive, she said. The communication has improved dramatically, the morale among staff has improved dramatically and our ability to get our jobs done has improved. Im very optimistic and Ive been satised so far. County commissioners expressed their faith in Harmers ability on Oct. 28 by unanimously granting him a six-month contract that calls for a raise and suspension of any search activities for a full-time replacement. Harmer, 55, was given a $20,000 salary increase, making his salary about $180,000 annually with benets. Commissioners will review his agreement in January.Email: slockwood@sun-herald.comBoard ousts Sarasota County administratorBy SCOTT LOCKWOODSTAFF WRITER HARMER B estof 3102 3102 3102 REIDAudubon to hold WalkAboutThe Peace River Audubon Society will hold a WalkAbout at 8 a.m. Wednesday at Ollies Pond Park, 18235 Avon Ave., Port Charlotte.

Poverty rates are noticeably higher among populations with lower levels of education. Together, it is essential that we support early childhood development and kindergarten readiness, improve academic success, and provide opportunities that reduce barriers at the high school level so that students can continue their education.

According to estimates released by U.S. Census Bureau on Monday, Florida trails New York by fewer than 100,000 residents, cutting the Empire States edge by more than half since last year. Its a matter of when, not if, the Sunshine State will slide into the top-three tier behind California and Texas. Based on Census Bureau estimates, Florida will probably pass New York within the next year, said Stan Smith, Program Director of the University of Floridas Bureau of Economic and Business Research. Florida is now home to an estimated 19,552,860 residents, up more than 230,000 from last year and 750,000 more than in the 2010 census count, according to Mondays gures. The numbers are estimated as of July 1 and do not reect growth at the county or municipal level. Gov. Rick Scott credited the population increase on his economic policies and efforts to attract new businesses to the state, trailing New York by just 98,267 residents. Florida is on a roll, Scott said in a statement on Monday. Cutting taxes and reducing red tape on businesses is a great catalyst for economic opportunity and job creation.

Lawmakers let these tax breaks lapse almost every year, even though they save businesses and individuals billions of dollars. And almost every year, Congress eventually renews them, retroactively, so taxpayers can claim them by the time they le their tax returns. No harm, no foul, right? After all, taxpayers ling returns in the spring wont be hurt because the tax breaks were in effect for 2013. Taxpayers wont be hit until 2015, when they le tax returns for next year. Not so fast. Trade groups and tax experts complain that Congress is making it impossible for businesses and individuals to plan for the future. What if lawmakers dont renew the tax break you depend on? Or what if they change it and youre no longer eligible? Its a totally ridiculous way to run our tax system, said Rachelle Bernstein, vice president and tax counsel for the National Retail Federation. Its impossible to plan when every year this happens, but yet business has gotten used to that.

Because of more energy-efcient housing, appliances and gadgets, power usage is on track to decline in 2013 for the third year in a row, to 10,819 kilowatt-hours per household, according to the Energy Information Administration. Thats the lowest level since 2001, when households averaged 10,535 kwh. And the drop has occurred even though our lives are more electried.

AmericaDETROIT (Detroit Free Press) Ford has sold more than 2.4 million vehicles in 2013 and expects to retain its best-selling title in North America in 2013 over Toyota. The automaker expects to widen its lead with record sales of the Fusion, Escape and Fiesta, strong demand for the Focus and a tripling of hybrid sales in 2013. Ford also has the single-best selling vehicle in the U.S. with the F-Series pickup, sales of which will easily exceed 700,000 this year, boosted by an improving economy with more housing starts and increased commercial construction. In 2012, customers bought 329,677 more Fords than Toyotas. While December sales are not released until Friday, Ford expects a much bigger lead. Through November, the Ford brand had sold 396,041 more vehicles than Toyota.Wells Fargo agrees to pay $591M to settle WASHINGTON (LA Times) Wells Fargo & Co. said Monday that it agreed to pay $591 million to Fannie Mae to settle disputes over soured mortgages that the bank sold to the seized housing nance giant during the subprime housing boom. The agreement covers loans originated by Wells Fargo before 2009 that Fannie Mae was trying to force the bank to buy back. The deal resolves substantially all repur chase issues related to those loans, the company said. Wells Fargo will pay $541 million in cash to Fannie Mae, with the rest covered by credits from earlier repurchases. Fannie Mae and its sibling rm, Freddie Mac, were seized by the federal government in 2008 as they teetered near bankruptcy because of bad loans they had purchased from banks.Ariz. woman accused of trying to poison childrenCASA GRANDE, Ariz. (AP) An Arizona woman is accused of trying to poison her four children, including one who died, and of stabbing her former husband, all on Christmas. Casa Grande police say 35-year-old Connie Villa was arrested Sunday on suspicion of one count of rst-degree murder and four counts of attempted murder. According to police, the ex-husband called 911 after he was stabbed when he went to Villas residence. Ofcers found the body of 13-year-old Aniarael Macias, while Villa with stab wounds believed to have been self-inicted. Autopsy and toxicology results are pending on the girl, who is believed to have been poisoned. The three other children are in good condition and are now with their fathers family.Fiery explosions in ND crude oil train derailmentCASSELTON, N.D. (AP) A train carrying crude oil from North Dakotas oil patch derailed Monday near the small town of Casselton, setting off a series of ery explosions. No injuries were initially reported, but ofcials were warning residents to stay indoors as the situation unfolded. BNSF Railway spokeswoman Amy McBeth said a train carrying grain was rst to derail, and it knocked several cars of the mile-long oil train off adjoining tracks. Several explosions were reported, she said. Cass County Sheriffs Capt. Mitch Burris also told The Associated Press that the derailment appeared to result from the crude oil train striking a grain car, but he said investigators were still trying to determine exactly what happened. Cass County Emergency Manager Dave Rogness said the towns 2,400 residents were told to stay indoors as a precaution.Treasuries rise as 10-year note yields at almost 3% draw NEW YORK (Bloomberg) Treasury 10-year notes gained for the rst time in ve days as yields at almost a twoyear high drew buyers betting the securities have already priced in an improving U.S. economy and an end to Federal Reserve bond purchases in 2014. Treasuries advanced as investors bought U.S. bonds to match market indexes, and as a report showed sales of previously owned homes rose less than forecast in November. Gains were tempered before data on Tuesday forecast to show consumer condence rose in December and a report next week that may show further employment gains. U.S. government securities headed for the rst annual loss since 2009.Facebook still at top, but sags among youngWASHINGTON (Washington Post) This is not your fathers Facebook. Its your grandfathers. New data from the Pew Center for Internet and American Life released Monday show that Facebooks strongest growth over the past year has come from users over the age of 65, as more older users sign onto the site to keep in touch with their friends, children and grandchildren. The survey found that 45 percent of American seniors who use the Internet are on Facebook, up from 35 percent the previous year. Use among teens, however, has stagnated at 84 percent. Thats in keeping with growing concern that Facebook is seeing lower engagement with the younger users that drove its early popularity, something that the company has acknowledged itself in an earnings call this year.Indiana congressman Jacobs dies at 81(Washington Post) Andrew Jacobs Jr., an Indiana Democrat who served under seven presidents during his 30 years in the House of Representatives, who was known as both a social liberal and a scal hawk and who was once described by consumer advocate Ralph Nader as the conscience of the House, died Saturday at his home in Indianapolis. He was 81. Gary Taylor, a family friend and former campaign manager, told The Associated Press that Jacobs had been in declining health in recent years but did not cite a specic cause of death. LAS VEGAS (AP) Six states were named Monday by federal ofcials to develop test sites for drones a critical next step for the burgeoning industry that could one day produce thousands of unmanned aircraft for use by businesses, farmers and researchers. Alaska, Nevada, New York, North Dakota, Texas and Virginia will host the research sites, providing diverse climates, geography and air trafc environments as the Federal Aviation Administration seeks to safely introduce commercial drones into U.S. airspace. Members of Congress and other politicians lobbied intensely to bring the work to their states. Representatives were jubilant about the likelihood that the testing will draw companies interested in cashing in on the edgling industry. An industry-commissioned study has predicted more than 70,000 jobs would develop in the rst three years after Congress loosens drone restrictions on U.S. skies. The same study projects an average salary range for a drone pilot between $85,000 and $115,000. This is wonderful news for Nevada that creates a huge opportunity for our economy, said U.S. Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nevada. In New York, Sen. Charles Schumer, a Democrat, called the announcement a boon for his state. Drones have been mainly used by the military, but governments, businesses, farmers and others are making plans to join the market. Many universities are starting or expanding curriculum involving drones. The FAA does not currently allow commer cial use of drones, but it is working to develop operational guidelines by the end of 2015, although ofcials concede the project may take longer than expected. The FAA projects some 7,500 commercial drones could be aloft within ve years of getting widespread access to the skies above America. Today was an important step, said attorney Ben Gielow of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, noting the announcement came after months of delays and data gathering. I think were all anxious to get this moving. The competition for a test site was robust, with 25 entities in 24 states submitting proposals, FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said during a conference call with reporters. At least one of the six sites chosen by the FAA will be up and running within 180 days, while the others are expected to come online in quick succession, he said. However, the designation as a test site doesnt come with a nancial award from the government. In choosing Alaska, the FAA cited a diverse set of test site locations in seven climatic zones. New Yorks site at Grifss International Airport will look into integrating drones into the congested northeast airspace. And Nevada offered proximity to military aircraft from several bases, Huerta said. The extent that lobbying inuenced the selection of the sites was unclear. Politics likely always plays a role in some level in this, but I couldnt tell you specically what the politics were, said Brendan M. Schulman, part of a New York Citybased law group focused on drone issues. Part of the selection is an evaluation of the dedication and seriousness the sites were showing in pursuing this. The testing will deter mine whether drones can detect and avoid aircraft and other obstacles, and if they can operate safely when contact is lost with operators.Feds announce test sites for drone aircraft AP FILE PHOTOThis April 13 le photo shows a NASA Global Hawk robotic jet in a hangar at Dryden Flight Research Center in Edwards Air Force Base, Calif. SEOUL, South Korea (AP) Samsung said a 110-inch TV that has four times the resolution of standard high-denition TVs is going on sale for about $150,000 in South Korea. The launch Monday of the giant television set reects global TV makers move toward ultra HD TVs, as manufacturing bigger TVs using OLED proves too costly. Last year, Samsung and rival LG Electronics, the worlds top two TV makers, touted OLED as the future of TV. OLED screens are ultrathin and can display images with enhanced clarity and deeper color saturation. But Samsung and LG failed to make OLED TVs a mainstream that would replace the LCD television sets and are still struggling to mass produce larger and affordable TVs with OLED. Meanwhile, Japanese media reported last week that Sony Corp. and Panasonic Corp. decided to end their OLED partnership. Demand for U-HD TVs is expected to rise despite dearth of content while its price will likely come down faster than that of the OLED TVs. Much of the growth is forecast to come from China, a major market for the South Korean TV makers. Chinese TV makers have been making a push into the U-HD TV market as well. According to NPD DisplaySearch, global sales of ultra-HD TV sets will surge from 1.3 million this year to 23 million in 2017. More than half of the shipments will be taken by Chinese companies between 2013 and 2017, according to NPD. While Chinese TV makers have been seeking to boost sales of U-HD TVs with a lower price and a smaller size, Samsungs strategy is to go bigger with a higher price tag. Samsungs 110-inch U-HD TV measures 2.6 meters by 1.8 meters. It will be available in China, the Middle East and Europe. In South Korea, the TV is priced at 160 million won ($152,000) while prices in other countries vary. Samsung said it received 10 orders for the latest premium TVs from the Middle East. Previously, the largest U-HD TV made by Samsung was 85 inches measured diagonally. The ultra-HD TVs are also known as K because they contain four times more pixels than an HD TV.Pssst!

(LA Times) Well before signs of dementia trigger a diagnosis of Alzheimers disease, a persons cholesterol levels may be a bellwether of amyloid plaque buildup in the brain, a new study nds. Long considered a reliable predictor of heart attacks and strokes, wor risome cholesterol levels may now raise concerns about dementia risk as well, prompting more aggressive use of drugs, including statins, that alter cholesterol levels. The current study does not convincingly exclude the possibility that taking statins might lower amyloid deposition, the researchers said. But neither did it show that those taking cholesterol medication were less likely to have the sticky plaques that gum up brain function. Only a larger study that gathers more of subjects past health history can determine what role cholesterol-lowering medication might play in protecting against Alzheimers disease, the authors wrote. Published Monday in the journal JAMA Neurology, the latest research used PET Imaging to conduct a one-time snapshot of the brains of 74 older patients without dementia. They looked specically to gauge the presence and concentration of amyloid plaques in brain regions most prone to early signs of the abnormal protein buildup: the frontal cor tex, lateral parietal cortex, lateral temporal cortex, posterior cingulate and precuneus. Past research has found higher levels of amyloid deposits in the post-mor tem brains of people who had worrisome cholester ol readings before their death. But this is the rst to nd that beta-amyloid proteins may accumulate steadily in those living with higher cholesterol, possibly resulting should one live long enough in dementia symptoms. Among the subjects, with an average age of 78, having high levels of LDL-C bad cholesterol was closely linked to having more amyloid plaque deposits in those regions. On average, those with low levels of HDL cholesterol the good cholesterol that at high levels is protective against cardiovascular disease also had more amyloid plaque in their brains.Cholesterol, Alzheimers link strengthens 1 'A.1

The Sun /Tuesday, December 31, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 3 NATIONAL/STATE NEWS ST. LOUIS, Mo. (AP) In days gone by, a knock on the door by a teacher or school official used to mean a child was in trouble. Not anymore, at least for parents and students at Clay Elementary School. The urban public school is one of more than 30 in the St. Louis area that sends teachers on home visits several times a year. Unlike home visit programs that focus on truants and troublemakers, or efforts aimed exclusively at early childhood, the newer wave seeks to nar row the teacher-parent divide while providing glimpses at the factors that shape student learning before and after the school bells ring. I wish they had this when I had children in school, said Elmira Warren, a teachers aide at Clay who has made home visits to her students and their parents. I was fearful of what the teachers thought, and of not knowing enough. The nonprofit HOME WORKS! program is modeled after one in Sacramento, Calif., that over the past decade has since spread to more than 300 schools in 13 states, with active programs in Washington, Denver, Seattle and St. Paul, Minn. Program leaders say participation leads to better attendance, higher test scores, greater parental involvement and fewer suspensions and expulsions, citing preliminary research of the newer program by the University of Missouri-St. Louis and a series of external reviews in Sacramento over the past decade. Participation is voluntary, and teachers are paid for their time. Weve figured out a way for people to sit down outside the regular school and have the most important conversation that needs to happen, said Carrie Rose, executive director of the Parent Teacher Home Visit Project in the California capital. The K-12 program began in 1999 as a faith-based community effort but quickly found support not only in the Sacramento school district but also with local teachers unions. The National Education Association has also endorsed teacher home visits, citing a critical mass of research evidence connecting high student achievement with involved parents. No longer do parents only hear from teachers when theres a problem, or during brief school conferences that leave little time to go beyond the surface. She knows how much the teachers care when she sees them at her home, said Mark Brown, whose 6-yearold daughter Unafay attends Clay Elementary in north St. Louis. A decade ago, Clay principal Donna Owens could barely attract 25 parents to meet their childrens teachers even once at a school with more than 320 students, with one notable exception: the Halloween candy giveaway. A recent HOME WORKS! event at the 191-student school drew close to double that number of parents. Our parents feel much more comfortable coming to the school and being a part of it, Owens said.Teachers find home visits help in the classroom AP PHOTOIn this photo taken Nov. 13, Cynthia Williams works with students in her fourth-grade class at Clay Elementary Commu nity Education school in St. Louis.

Today in history On Dec. 31, 1879, Thomas Edison first publicly demon strated his electric incandescent light in Menlo Park, N.J. On this dateIn 1775, during the Revolu tionary War, the British repulsed an attack by Continental Army generals Richard Montgomery and Benedict Arnold at Quebec; Montgomery was killed. In 1862, President Abraham Lincoln signed an enabling act paving the way for Virginias western counties to become the state of West Virginia, which took place in June 1863. In 1909, the Manhattan Bridge, spanning the East River between Manhattan and Brooklyn, was officially opened to vehicular traffic. In 1942, Frank Sinatra opened a singing engagement at New Yorks Paramount Theater. In 1946, President Harry S. Truman officially proclaimed the end of hostilities in World War II. In 1951, the Marshall Plan expired after distributing more than $12 billion in foreign aid. In 1969, Joseph A. Yablonski, an unsuccessful candidate for the presidency of the United Mine Workers of America, was shot to death with his wife and daughter in their Clarksville, Pa., home by hitmen acting at the orders of UMWA president Tony Boyle. In 1972, Major League base ball player Roberto Clemente, 38, was killed when a plane hed chartered and was traveling on to bring relief supplies to earth quake-devastated Nicaragua crashed shortly after takeoff from Puerto Rico. In 1985, singer Rick Nelson, 45, and six other people were killed when fire broke out aboard a DC-3 that was taking the group to a New Years Eve performance in Dallas. In 1986, 97 people were killed when fire broke out in the Dupont Plaza Hotel in San Juan, Puerto Rico. (Three hotel workers later pleaded guilty in connection with the blaze.) In 1987, Robert Mugabe, prime minister of Zimbabwe, was sworn in as the countrys first executive president. In 1993, Brandon Teena, a 21-year-old female-born transgender, was slain along with two other people at a farmhouse near Humboldt, Neb. (Convicted murderer John Lotter is on Nebraskas death row; co-defendant Thomas Nissen is serving a life sentence. The case inspired the 1999 movie Boys Dont Cry.) In 2008, The U.N. Security Council held an emergency meeting on an Arab request for a binding and enforceable resolution condemning Israel and halting its military attacks on Gaza. A man left four giftwrapped bombs in downtown Aspen, Colo. in a bank-robbery attempt, turning New Years Eve celebrations into a mass evacuation. (The man, identified as 72-year-old James Chester Blanning, shot and killed himself.) Todays birthdays TV producer George Schlatter is 84. Actor Sir Anthony Hopkins is 76.

The six female jurors picked for Zimmermans trial had to determine whose story to believe: Zimmermans claim of self-defense or prosecutors contention that Zimmerman was a vigilante who proled Martin and decided the black teen was up to no good in the gated community where Zimmerman lived and Martin was visiting. A prosecutor began the trial with a jolt by repeating obscenities Zimmerman said to a dispatcher while following Martin. The neighborhood watch volunteers defense attorney followed with a knock-knock joke that fell flat. Over the next three weeks, prosecutors and defense attorneys tried to convince jurors whose voice was screaming for help on 911 calls that captured the fight. Martins mother, father and brother testified it was the Miami teen screaming for help; Zimmermans mother, uncle, father and five friends told jurors it was the neighborhood watch volunteers voice. The most memorable witness was Rachel Jeantel, the young woman from Miami who was on the phone with Martin in the moments before he was shot. Her testy exchanges with a defense attorney, her lack of polish and her use of the term creepy-ass cracker in recounting how Martin described Zimmerman made her the brunt of spoof accounts poking fun at her candid statements and dialect. The instructions jurors were given after three weeks of testimony allowed them to nd Zimmerman not guilty if they had reasonable doubt or if they thought it was a justiable use of force. Under Florida law, Zimmerman could use justiable force not only if he faced death or bodily harm but also if he merely thought he did. After deliberating over two days, the jury found him not guilty of second-degree murder or manslaughter. In the weeks following the verdict, protests were held around the nation. Protests in Oakland and Los Angeles turned mildly violent, but the response to the Zimmerman verdict was nothing like the massive 1992 Los Angeles uprising that killed 53 people after police ofcers were acquitted in the Rodney King beating. These news items rounded out the top 10 stories of the year: 2. The Florida Legislature rejected a plan to expand the states Medicaid program, turning down a promised $50 billion in federal funding. The decision left 1.1 million Floridians uninsured for now. 3. The Miami New Times obtained records that linked the anti-aging clinic Biogenesis to the distribution of performance enhancing drugs to major league baseball players, including New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez. 4. Florida election ofcials revived plans that they say will remove non-U.S. citizens from the states voter rolls without also purging eligible citizens, despite criticism that minority voters are being targeted. 5. Former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist announced that he will run for governor next year as a Democrat against Scott, the GOP incumbent. 6. The arrest of 57 defendants on charges they were running a $300 million gambling operation out of Internet cafes around the state led to the resignation of Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll and caused the Legislature to ban the storefront Internet centers. 7. Scott signed into law a statewide ban on texting while driving, making Florida the 40th state to enact a texting-while-driving ban for all drivers. 8. A state task force concluded that Floridas so-called stand your ground law shouldnt be amended. 9. Floridas unemployment rate fell to 6.4 percent in November, the lowest level in over ve years. 10. Duke Energy canceled plans to build a nuclear plant and repair another in the states Big Bend area. ACQUITTALFROM PAGE 1 Better homesIn the early 2000s, as energy prices rose, more states adopted or toughened building codes to force builders to better seal homes so heat or air-conditioned air doesnt seep out so fast. That means newer homes waste less energy. Also, insulated windows and other building technologies have dropped in price, making retrots of existing homes more affordable. In the wake of the nancial crisis, billions of dollars in Recovery Act funding was directed toward home-efciency programs.Better gadgetsBig appliances such as refrigerators and air conditioners have gotten more efcient thanks to federal energy standards that get stricter ever few years as technology evolves. A typical room air conditioner one of the biggest power hogs in the home uses 20 percent less electricity per hour of full operation than it did in 2001, according to the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers. Central air conditioners, refrigerators, dishwashers, water heaters, washing machines and dryers also have gotten more efcient. Other devices are using less juice, too. Some 40-inch LED televisions bought today use 80 percent less power than the cathode ray tube televisions of the past. Some use just $8 worth of electricity over a year when used ve hours a day less than a 60-watt incandescent bulb would use. Those incandescent light bulbs are being replaced with compact uorescent bulbs and LEDs that use 70 to 80 percent less power. According to the Energy Department, widespread use of LED bulbs could save output equivalent to that of 44 large power plants by 2027. The move to mobile also is helping. Desktop computers with big CRT monitors are being replaced with laptops, tablet computers and smartphones, and these mobile devices are specically designed to sip power to prolong battery life. It costs $1.36 to power an iPad for a year, compared with $28.21 for a desktop computer, according to the Electric Power Research Institute.On the other hand...We are using more devices, and that is offsetting what would otherwise be a more dramatic reduction in power consumption. DVRs spin at all hours of the day, often under more than one television in a home. Game consoles are getting more sophisticated to process better graphics and connect with other players, and therefore use more power. More homes have central air conditioners instead of window units. They are more efcient, but people use them more often. Still, Jennifer Amman, the buildings program director at the American Council for an Energy-Efcient Economy, says she is encouraged. Its great to see this movement, to see the shift in the national numbers, she says. I expect well see greater improvement over time. There is so much more that can be done.ELECTRICITYFROM PAGE 1 credits for companies that invest in research and development, generous exemptions for nancial institutions doing business overseas, and several breaks that let businesses write off capital investments faster. Others are more obscure, the benets targeted to lm producers, race track owners, makers of electric motor cycles and teachers who buy classroom supplies with their own money. There are tax rebates to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands from a tax on rum imported into the United States, and a credit for expenses related to railroad track maintenance. A deduction for state and local sales taxes benets people who live in the nine states without state income taxes. Smaller tax breaks benet college students and commuters who use public transportation. A series of tax breaks promote renewable energy, including a credit for power companies that produce electricity with windmills. The annual practice of letting these tax breaks expire is a symptom of a divided, dysfunctional Congress that struggles to pass routine legislation, said Rep. John Lewis of Georgia, a senior Democrat on the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee. Its not fair, its very hard, its very difcult for a business person, a company, to plan, not just for the short term but to do long-term planning, Lewis said. Its shameful. With Congress on vacation until January, there is no chance the tax breaks will be renewed before they expire. And there is plenty of precedent for Congress to let them expire for months without addressing them. Most recently, they expired at the end of 2011, and Congress didnt renew them for the entire year, waiting until New Years Day 2013 just in time for taxpayers to claim them on their 2012 returns. But Congress only renewed the package through the end of 2013. Why such a short extension? Washington accounting is partly to blame. The two-year extension Congress passed in January cost $76 billion in reduced revenue for the government, according to the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation. Making those tax breaks permanent could add $400 billion or more to the decit over the next decade. With budget decits already high, many in Congress are reluctant to vote for a bill that would add so much red ink. So, they do it slowly, one or two years at time.TAXFROM PAGE 1 Floridas climate and the lack of a state personal income tax the peak attractions for migrants of all ages. With an estimated 19,651,127 residents, New York hasnt been able to keep up with Floridas pace of growth. New York gained about 75,000 residents in the past year, less than a third of Floridas increase. And while New York City continues to attract newcomers, regions of upstate New York have seen stagnant and declining population numbers. Floridas population boost brings with it the potential for a larger tax base but also comes with an increased demand for services, such as roads and schools, and resources including water and land. One benefit of Floridas current pace of growth could be additional representation in Congress, Smith said. The ranking itself doesnt mean much, other than the likely shift in congressional seats following the 2020 census, he said. Due to population changes reflected by the 2010 census, Florida picked up two seats while New York lost two. Mondays estimate put the U.S. population at 316.1 million as of July 1, with states in the South and West growing faster than the rest of the country. West Virginia and Maine were the only states to have projected declines in population from 2012 to 2013, while Maine and Rhode Island are the only states currently home to fewer people than when the 2010 census was taken.ALMOSTFROM PAGE 1 WASHINGTON (AP) Certain current or former heavy smokers should start getting yearly scans for lung cancer to cut their risk of death from the nations top cancer killer, government advisers said Monday even as they stressed that the tests arent for everyone. The long-anticipated decision by the inuential U.S. Preventive Services Task Force says these CT scans of the lungs should be offered only to people at especially high risk: Those who smoked a pack of cigarettes a day for 30 years or an equivalent amount, such as two packs a day for 15 years and who are between the ages of 55 and 80. Thats roughly 10 million people, but not all of them qualify for screening, said task force vice chairman Dr. Michael LeFevre, a University of Missouri family physician. Even those high-risk people shouldnt be scanned if theyre not healthy enough to withstand cancer treatment, or if they kicked the habit more than 15 years ago. Lung cancer kills nearly 160,000 Americans each year. Smoking is the biggest risk factor, and the more and longer people smoke, the higher their risk. Usually, lung cancer is diagnosed too late for treatment to succeed, but until now there hasnt been a good means of early detection. The newly recommended screening could prevent as many as 20,000 deaths a year, LeFevre said if its used correctly. That estimate assumes good candidates seek the scans. Theres no way to know if people at the highest risk will, or if instead the overly anxious will ood testing centers. Screen the wrong people, and we could see more harm than good, LeFevre cautioned. Theres a lot of room for what I would call people exploiting the recommendation. I can imagine a street-corner imaging center advertising to invite people in. Why not screen younger or lighter smokers? Theres no data to tell if theyd be helped. Lung cancer is rare before age 50, and the major study that showed screening could save lives enrolled only heavy smokers starting at age 55. But screening isnt harm-free. A suspicious scan is far more likely to be a false alarm than a tumor, LeFevre noted. Yet patients may undergo invasive testing to nd out, which in turn can cause complications. Moreover, radiation accumulated from even low-dose CT scans can raise the risk of cancer. And occasionally, screening detects tumors so small and slow-growing that they never would have threatened the persons life. While screening clearly can benet some people, the best way to avoid lung cancer death is to stop smoking, LeFevre added.Lung cancer scans urged for some smokers, not all aaaaQWAY On hoompOn lugdW

And while the stock market has gone up a lot, my Quest stock has fallen in price. Ive been thinking of selling the stock for several months ,but I keep holding off as the stock continues to dwindle. Should sell this stock and look for a better opportunity? Do you have any thoughts on how much higher the market can go or if and when the market will fall again? HT, Oklahoma City, Okla. Dear HT: Many readers dont know that Quest is the leading independent provider of diagnostic testing services in the country. Quest derives 90 percent of its revenues from clinical tests, anatomic pathology, esoteric testing and substance abuse testing via 2,000-plus service centers across the nation. And many customers will tell you that their Quest experiences are unsatisfactory. Quest generates the remaining 10 percent of its revenues from clinical trials testing, risk assessment services and information technology services, and some professionals consider these services unsatisfactory. Since late 2009, the Dow Jones zoomed 6,000 points, but in that time frame the share price of Quest Diagnostics (DGX-$55.22) has remained at as a pancake. And since 2009, DGXs revenues slowly slipped from $7.45 billion to $7.38 billion while [1] net prots fell from $721 million to $660 million in 2013 in [2] that same time frame, net prot margins deteriorated and return on total capital, return on shareholder equity and DGXs working capital also declined as long-term debt increased. Industry changes: Hospitals are eroding DGXs business model with better service and friendly personnel; additional restrictions on government and commer cial health care spending, plus the confusion sur rounding Obamacare and consolidation, have diluted DGXs bargaining power. And recent changes in management have neither improved the companys spotty operational execution nor its ability to focus on corporate strategy. Additionally, observers believe that CEO Stephen Rusckowski lacks the operational skills needed to synchronize Quests various moving parts. Certainly DGXs poorly conceived entry into the fast-growing Indian market and animal health care testing, have been major disappointments. Another niggling problem is the snippy ser vice at DGXs blood centers. Even Value Line mentions anecdotal evidence of complaints by patients and physicians about insensitive, grouchy employees and incomplete test results. Finally, an angry Orlando, Fla., reader who received incomplete test results told me the folks she talked to at DGXs regional and home ofce headquarters had the personalities of a sucked orange. Most bosses hire employees in their own images. However DGXs only signicant competitor, Laboratory Corporation of America (LH-$90), is reporting continued higher revenues, higher earnings and a stock price that has increased 35 percent since 2009. And its interesting to note that while DGX is 40 percent larger than LH, investors assigned both companies an equal market capitalization of $8 billion. You can continue to let this dead dog sleep or swallow the bullet, grab the bull by the tail, look it in the eye and sell DGX. Any dope with the capacity to invest $65,000 in one stock should have the common sense to demand proper due diligence. Apparently you dont, so I suggest that you hire a money manager who can provide you with the experience, knowledge and wisdom to make informed investment decisions. Anyhow, I have no idea how much higher the market will continue to rise. As long as the FED prints money, force feeding banks with $75 billion every month, the market will continue to rise because those cumulative trillions gotta be spent. In fact one stupid with an overowing bank account recently paid $142 million for a 1969 oil by Frances Bacon (Three Studies of Lucian Freud) surpassing another stupids $120 million recent purchase of Edward Munchs The Scream, which was $10 million more than what a third stupid recently paid for Andy Wyarhols, Silver Car Crash. And this is what the avalanche of FED dollars has done to equities, encouraging stupids to bid up the prices of stocks that have no or little earnings. Meanwhile, the Dow Averages will certainly slow when administration instructs Yellen to stop printing money. Email Malcolm Berko at mjberko@yahoo.com.Quest Diagnostics Malcolm Berko NEW YORK (AP) The stock market ended a quiet Monday mostly where it began as investors shut their books for what has been an extraordinary year on Wall Street. Traders had little corporate or economic news to work through. The bond market was quiet as well. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note continued to hover near 3 percent. The Dow Jones industrial average moved less than 30 points the entire day, the narrowest range for the index since February 2007. Approximately 2.3 billion shares changed hands on the New York Stock Exchange, 40 percent less than average. The Dow ended the day up 25.88 points, or 0.2 percent, to 16,504.29. The very narrow range reects that theres not a lot of news out there and a lot of investors positions are closed for the year, said Alec Young, chief global strategist with S&P Capital IQ. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell less than a point to 1,841.07 and the technology-heavy Nasdaq composite fell 2.40 points, or 0.1 percent, to 4,154.20. Walt Disney rose $1.88, or 3 percent, to $76.23, the most in the S&P 500. Analysts at Guggenhiem Securities upgraded Disneys stock to a buy from a hold on Friday. With just one trading day left in the year, 2013 is looking to be a memora ble one for investors. The S&P 500 is up 29.1 percent so far, on pace for its best year since 1997. The Dow is up 26 percent, the most since 1996. With 2013 in the books, investors have turned their attention to the beginning of 2014. Few expect next year to be as good to investors as 2013 was. After a year like this, people start to think a 30 percent-plus year is normal, said Ron Florance, deputy chief investment ofcer for Wells Fargo Private Bank. We need to be realistic going into next year. The next big piece of news investors will have to work through will be the December jobs report, which will be released Jan. 10. There is also corporate earnings season, which will start in the second half of January. Corporate earnings will be important, particularly since this upcoming season will encompass the closely watched holiday shopping period.Stocks barely budge | BUSINESS BRIEFSGold declines on way to worst year since 1981(Bloomberg) Gold fell for the rst time in four sessions in New York, set for its biggest annual loss in three decades, as an improving economy cut demand for a protection of wealth. Silver futures also retreated. Bullion slid to $1,186 an ounce on Dec. 19, near this years low set in June, before rebounding to a one-week high of $1,218.90 on Dec. 27. Global equities traded near the highest since 2007 before reports this week that may show gains in U.S. housing and manufacturing. Were seeing improving economies with little or no ination, Frank McGhee, the head dealer at Integrated Brokerage Services in Chicago, said in a telephone interview. The fear has been stripped out of the market, and ab sent ination, I think well see gold continue to grind lower into next year. Gold futures for February delivery fell 0.8 percent to settle at $1,203.80 at 1:41 p.m. on the Comex in New York. Trading was 49 percent below the average for the past 100 days for this time of day, data compiled by Bloomberg showed. Gold has tumbled 28 percent this year, set for the worst annual plunge since 1981.Pending sales of existing homes less than forecastWASHINGTON (Bloomberg) Contracts to purchase previously owned homes rose less than forecast in November, indicating higher borrowing costs are holding back the recovery in residential real estate. A gauge of pending home sales increased 0.2 percent, the rst gain in six months, after a 1.2 percent drop in October that was larger than initially reported, the National Association of Realtors said Monday in Washington. The median projection in a Bloomberg survey of economists called for a 1 percent advance. -, rl.-,:,0 0

The Sun /Tuesday, December 31, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 7 WORLD NEWS | WORLDEgypt arrests Al-Jazeera journalistsCAIRO Four journalists working for Al-Jazeera have been arrested by Egyptian authorities, the pan-Arab satellite channel said on its website, in an apparent escalation of Egyptian authorities harsh campaign against the Muslim Brotherhood. The Qatar-based channel called for their immediate release. The four, who were arrested late Sunday, were identied by AlJazeera as correspondent Peter Greste, producers Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed and cameraman Mohamed Fawzy. Greste, an award-winning Australian journalist, has previously worked for Reuters, CNN and the BBC, and Fahmy serves as Al-Jazeeras Cairo bureau chief, according to colleagues. The Interior Ministry, in a statement cited by regional news outlets, said the men were accused of making reports harmful to national security and possessing Muslim Brotherhood publications.Pakistan: Police find bombs near Musharrafs houseISLAMABAD (AP) Pakistani authorities defused four small bombs Monday planted near the house of former president and army chief Pervez Musharraf, just two days before hes to appear in court in a treason case, a police ofcial said. An onlooker spotted the devices alongside a road about a half kilometer (quarter mile) from Musharrafs farmhouse on the outskirts of Islamabad, said police ofcer Nayyar Saleem. The improvised devices were left in separate plastic shopping bags, and there were about seven pounds of explosives altogether.Chinese police kill eight Uighurs in Xinjiang clashBEIJING (La Times) Police in Chinas far western Xinjiang region killed eight people Monday when a group wielding knives and throwing explosives attacked a police station, local authorities said. The ofcial Xinhua news agency referred to the incident in Yarkand county as a terrorist attack, and the incident comes just two weeks after 16 people were reported killed in a clash between police and ethnic Uighurs near the city of Kashgar, in the same vicinity.Rescuers close in on Antarctic research vesselSYDNEY, Australia (MCT) A rescue ship is within 12 miles of a polar research vessel that has been trapped in Antarctic ice for six days with 74 people aboard, ofcials said Monday. Despite poor visibility because of falling snow, the Aurora Australis is nearing the Russianagged MV Akademik Shokalskiy, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said. The Shokalskiy has been stuck since Tuesday about 1,740 miles south of Hobart, Tasmania. The safety authority sent in the Aurora after a Chinese research vessel, the Snow Dragon, had to give up within eight miles of the Shokalskiy because the ice sheets were more than a match for its steel hull.Greeces 47% return sparks brighter outlookLONDON (Bloomberg) Greek bonds returned almost four times as much as any other government securities this year as the nation that sparked Europes sovereign debt crisis moved toward economic recovery after six years of contraction. Greeces 47 percent year-to-date return was the best of 34 sovereign debt markets tracked by Bloomberg World Bond Indexes. The second-best performer was Ireland, which exited its international bailout program on Dec. 15, with a 12 percent gain. Spain police arrest suspected hackersMADRID (Bloomberg) Spains national police, acting along with an unidentied U.S. security agency, arrested eight members of a global banking hacking network responsible for stealing more than $60 million from cash machines worldwide. Spanish police said in a statement on Sunday they had arrested six Romanians and two Moroccans in the suburbs of Madrid. JUBA, South Sudan (AP) Ugandas president on Monday warned South Sudans rebel leader against rejecting the governments offer of a ceasere, saying regional leaders would unite to defeat the former vice president who is accused of mounting a failed coup in the worlds newest country. Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni told reporters in Juba, the South Sudan capital, that a regional bloc known as IGAD had given Riek Machar four days to respond to the cease-re offer. If he doesnt we shall have to go for him, all of us, he said, referring to IGAD. A meeting of East African leaders last week said it welcomed the com mitment by South Sudans government to cease hostilities against rebels and urged both sides to start peace talks by Tuesday. Machar instead called for a negotiated cease-re that includes a way to monitor compliance. Violence since mid-December in South Sudan has displaced up to 180,000 people, the United Nations said Monday. Ugandas inuence is strong in South Sudan, where special forces from the neighboring country have been deployed at the request of South Sudans President Salva Kiir, raising questions about the impartiality of Uganda as a possible mediator in a conict that many fear could lead to civil war in the worlds newest country. But Frances ambassador to the United Nations said South Sudans govern ment has the right under international law to seek help from neighboring countries to defend itself. There is a government in South Sudan, which has the right to ask for another country to support its military efforts, said Gerard Araud, who is the U.N. Security Council president. He added that the Security Council does not have a say in whether South Sudan seeks such help. Museveni and Kiir are strong allies. The Ugandan leader is believed to be concerned about the security implications for Uganda of a violent takeover of South Sudans government. For years the brutal warlord Joseph Kony, who once operated in the expansive jungle that now falls within South Sudans territory, was a source of tension between Uganda and Sudan. Sudans government faced persistent allegations of supporting Konys rebellion against Ugandas government.

CARACAS, Venezuela (Bloomberg) Venezuelas monthly ination rate fell in November and December after President Nicolas Maduro ordered shops to cut prices on everything from refrigerators to Christmas lights. Consumer prices rose 2.2 percent this month and 4.8 percent in November, compared with 5.1 percent in October, the central bank said in a report posted Monday on its website. The median estimate of seven analysts surveyed by Bloomberg was for prices to gain 4 percent in November. The central bank didnt provide the annual ination gure or the updated scarcity index. Maduro has blamed shortages and fast ination on the parasitic bour geoisie and last month ordered more than a 1,000 businesses to reduce prices. Since then, price regulators backed by the military have taken over an electronics chain, a car battery factory, a hardware store and Smurt Kappas packaging plant. Industry has blamed cur rency controls for crimping imports in a country that gets about 70 percent of its goods from abroad. Venezuela has the fastest ination in the world among the 103 economies surveyed by Bloomberg. Food prices rose 7.5 percent in November, restaurants and hotels 5.9 percent and alcohol and tobacco 5.5 percent. Caracas ination for November was 3.7 percent. Maduro said price cuts should slow ination and asked government statisticians in a televised address Nov. 23 to go beyond the technicalities and technology when calculating ination. The central bank said it undertook an extraordinary operation in collecting the ination data. Price speculation on goods and services was out of control, which could have produced monthly ination of close to 6 percent in November, the bank said. The data collected was reviewed and businesses were visited again in order to corroborate results. Price cuts have improved Maduros popularity, allowing his party to win the majority of mayorships in local elections Dec. 8, according to polling company Datanalisis. The cost to the economy will be faster ination and weaker growth next year, Diego Moya-Ocampos, political risk analyst at IHS Global Insight in London, said in an emailed response to questions. Venezuelas scarcity index, which measures the amount of goods out of stock at any given time, reached 22.4 percent in October, the highest level since January 2008, the central bank said. Annual ination accelerated to 54.3 percent in October, the fastest pace in as many as 16 years.Venezuelas forced price cuts slows inflation 50463210 Find Paradise in Your Own Backyard. r frnt rbrt b r frnt rbrt brrf 50461653 Smoke-Free!Doors open at 10 Games start at 11 ree times a week, everyTuesday, ursday & FridayNo Tipping!

I need a glass of water. Mom, I cant sleep! When youngsters continually struggle to fall asleep at night, new research suggests maybe their body clock doesnt match their bedtime. That doesnt mean tots should be up at all hours. Just like nutrition and exercise, sleep is critical for good health, said sleep scientist Monique LeBourgeois of the University of Colorado, Boulder, who is leading the research. The ultimate goal is to help reset a delayed sleep clock so that young children can settle down more easily, she said. Hint: It seems to have a lot to do with light. We all have whats called a circadian rhythm, a master biological clock, that regulates when we become sleepy, and when were more alert. Those patterns vary with age: Its the reason teenagers are notorious for late nights and difcult-to-wake mornings. But how does that clock work in preschoolers, who need more sleep than older kids or adults? A rst-of-its-kind study tracked 14 healthy youngsters for six days to begin nding out. The children, ages 2 to 3, wore activity monitors on their wrists to detect when they slept. Parents kept diaries about bedtime routines. Then on the last after noon, researchers visited each home, dimming lights and covering windows. Then every 30 minutes for six hours leading up to the childs appointed bedtime, they also coaxed each tot to chew on some dental cotton to provide a sample of saliva. The reason: To test for levels of a hormone named melatonin that is key to the sleep cycle and also sensitive to light. At some point every evening, peoples melatonin levels surge and a while later, they begin to feel sleepy. Among adults who sleep well, that melatonin rise tends to happen about two hours before whatever is their chosen bedtime. For preschoolers, the new study found that on average, the melatonin surge occurred around 7:40 p.m. The children tended to be tucked in around 8:10 p.m., and most were asleep 30 min utes later, LeBourgeois reported in the jour nal Mind, Brain and Education. When melatonin rose earlier in the evening, tots who hit the sack around 8 fell asleep a bit faster. But when the mel atonin surge was closer to bedtime, the youngsters were more likely to fuss or make curtain calls after lights-out. Two children in the study actually were tucked in before their rise in melatonin ever occurred, and it took them up to an hour past bedtime to fall asleep, she said. We dont know what that sweet spot is yet, LeBourgeois said, but the data suggest bedtime is easiest if the melatonin surge occurred at least 30 minutes earlier. The study reinforces what doctors have long suspected is one bedtime barrier, said Dr. Jyoti Krishna, a pediatric sleep expert at the Cleveland Clinic. Other factors can disrupt a childs sleep, too, such as noise, stress or anxiety, or disrupted home routines, he cautioned.Body clock may be to blame when tots fight sleep AP PHOTOThis handout photo provided by University of Colorado, Boulder, taken Dec. 20, shows University of Colorado, Boulder, student Karlie Johansen collecting a saliva sample from 3-year-old Anders Todd, as part of a study of sleep patterns in young children. HONOLULU (AP) The White House says the United States would welcome closer cooperation with Russia on security preparations for the Winter Olympics following a pair of deadly attacks that sparked fears about the terrorism threat at the February Games. The U.S. government has offered our full support to the Russian government in security preparations for the Sochi Olympic Games, White House spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said. We would welcome the opportunity for closer cooperation for the safety of the athletes, spectators and other participants. Ofcials say that while Russia will be responsible for overall security at the Games, U.S. personnel will be in the country in what the Obama administration is calling liaison roles. The effort will be headed by the State Departments Bureau of Diplomatic Security, which typically assists host nations during events where a large number of Americans will be present. Diplomatic security agents will work with Russian security and law enforcement ofcials. While the U.S. and Russia had already been in contact about security, the back-to-back attacks in the southern city of Volgograd have highlighted the terrorist threat Russia faces as it prepares to host the Winter Games in February. At least 31 people were killed in the separate explosions at a railway station and on a bus in Volgograd, which lies about 400 miles away from the site of the 2014 Winter Olympics. White House ofcials said President Barack Obama had been briefed on the attacks while on vacation in his home state of Hawaii. The White House has condemned the attacks and offered condolences to those injured and the families of those killed. The upcoming Olympics have highlighted the complicated relationship between the U.S. and Russia. The two countries are necessary partners on an array on foreign policy matters, including Iranian nuclear negotiations and the effort to strip Syria of its chemical weapons stockpiles. Officials say counterterrorism cooperation between the U.S. and Russia has also increased following the April Boston Marathon bombing, which was believed to have been carried out by two brothers with ties to Russias volatile Caucasus region. And Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren made a point of stressing Monday that the military-to-military relationship between the two countries is as good as its ever been. However, tensions mounted between Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin after Russia granted temporary asylum to Edward Snowden, the former U.S. government contractor who leaked secrets about American surveillance programs. Obama has also been publicly critical of a Russian law banning gay propaganda. In a clear message to Russia, the U.S. delegation to the Olympics includes several openly gay athletes, including tennis player Billie Jean King and figure skater Brian Boitano. And for the first time since 2000, the American delegation to the Olympics will not include a president, vice president or first lady.US eyeing Olympic security after Russia attacks 111 atSi4to91`1 HD 27 Ottawa6ti14 Montreali1 Billngs 3975 > 1 TOronto.._ T ``Minneapols\Qua 22/roll 1011@?13ChlcagoNew YorkSan Francis J en -I 5&31 Washington`C 2 r" r 2.01 %s`(\l I 1 Kansas City 4"Los as -40126/ .; ,l, ,f ,9Y49> I Atlantar \ I 52%,6,7 .nM, r Q l 7` I 9 PasoF. .{}F-y a 1S ii 5513, I .:y f HoustonChihuahua 53/57/34 41\,. 0 P1 'ZIZZZI, 1.\7 MonWilli.t0' 1: ;24I'I I I o-0 50 100150 200 300 5001 'f0Trees -Grass vWeeds' -Mdds'absent low moderate high veryhlgho r4o 1. 4t a oAccuWeather.com1

The Pirates received it. Lindsey recovered from early foul trouble to score 26 points, including two 3-pointers in the second half that stied potential rallies, to lead Port Charlotte to a 50-46 victory against Estero on the nal day of the Queen of the Palms Tournament at Cape Coral High School. It was rough; our bench had to really step up because we had a lot of injuries, Taylor said. The Pirates dressed eight players and played without injured starters Courtney Robertson and Katie Stewart. A lot of our reserves got to play quality minutes, and we had to be smart to come away with the win, Port Charlotte coach Kevin Purcell said. We held the ball and ran out the clock, so thats good stuff. Port Charlotte (13-5) led by 12 at the half, but the Wildcats went on a 10-2 run in the third quarter that cut the lead to four. That was when Lindsey sank a 30-footer at the buzzer to rebuild Lindseys 26 rallies PiratesBy CHUCK BALLAROSUN CORRESPONDENT GIRLS BASKETBALL: Port Charlotte 50, Estero 46SUN PHOTO BY KATHERINE GODINAPort Charlottes Taylor Lindsey drives to the basket for a layup past Esteros Mariah Rhem during Mondays game at the Queen of Palms Tournament in Cape Coral. LINDSEY | 2 UP NEXTPort Charlotte: vs. Island Coast, Jan. 8, 7 p.m. FORT MYERS The Queen of Palms Tournament ended on an up note for Charlotte High School. The Tarpons rallied in the second half for a 58-50 victory against Oasis Charter in the seventh-place game of the tournaments Amber Division. It was a complete game, said Charlotte coach Mike Robishaw, who has lamented the lack of precisely that in recent weeks. The Tarpons (4-12) struggled early with the inside play of Oasis center Jordan Westendorf, who scored 17 of her 22 points in the rst half. Early in the rst quar ter, theyre just so tall, Robishaw said. Theyd release one or two girls. I told our girls that was killing us. Youve got to get offensive rebounds, and youve got to get back (on defense). They killed us on that early on, but we started to pick that up, get back. I thought our press worked very well. That pressure eventually wore down the Sharks (8-7), leading to the Tarpons outscoring Oasis 18-6 in the fourth quarter.

The Colonels (8-0) outscored the Bobcats 29-8 in the fourth quarter to take a 65-43 victory in the championship game of the 22nd Annual Suncoast Holiday Classic at Riverview High School. Theyre a very good team, North Port coach Travis Slanger said. Theyre probably the best team weve seen all season. They just dont make many mistakes. Senior guard Nick Ruthsatz scored 19 points, including three 3-point field goals, to spark the winners, who are ranked 18th in Kentucky. The state only has one classification. But Cole VonHandorf had the hot hand in the final quarter, scoring nine of his 13 points then. Covington Catholic constantly worked the ball around for the good shot and fed the ball well back to their guards when they were open. We just worked the ball around and instead of going for the basket at the post, work it back a lot to our guards, Colonels coach Scott Ruthsatz said. Outside shooting is a strong point for us. And it was Monday. The Colonels made nine of 19 3-point field goal attempts, a 47.4 average. They made seven of nine 3-point attempts in the BOYS BASKETBALL: Covington Catholic 65 North Port 43 UP NEXTNorth Port: vs. Riverview, Friday, 7:30 p.m. BOBCATS | 2TAMPA Tampa Bay could bring Lovie Smith back to Tampa Bay. The Glazer family, which owns the team, has made contact with Smith about their head coaching position, which became available after they red second-year coach Greg Schiano and general manager Mark Dominik Monday morning. Smith, who was the Chicago Bears head coach for nine seasons, began his NFL career as a linebackers coach for the Bucs under Tony Dungy in 1996. Out of the NFL this season, he went 81-63 in Chicago with four 10-win seasons and led Chicago to the Super Bowl after the 2006 season. He interviewed for the Houston coaching job and is likely to draw interest from several other teams. But those close to Smith said he is particularly intrigued by the opportunity to coach the Bucs. Multiple reports say that Smith would bring former Cal coach Jeff Tedford as his offensive coordinator.

The 55-year-old is a former Bucs assistant (1996-2000).

The former Hurricane assistant had been offensive coordinator in Cleveland and, more recently, with the Panthers (2011-12).DAVID SHAWStanford coachAfter taking over for Jim Harbaugh, the former offensive coordinator has led the Cardinal to backto-back Pac-12 titles and a 34-6 record.

L OVIE S MITH M IKE S HANAHAN R O B C HUDZIN S KI D AVID S HAW POSSIBLE REPLACEMENTSTAMPACan we re the owners, too? After ve years of paddling around the shallow end of the NFL pool and pretty much drowning, general manager Mark Dominik had to go. That was a no-brainer. After two years of mediocrity and controversy, coach Greg Schiano had to go. In the end, that, too, was an easy call. But theres no reason to think this is the darkness before dawn. For all we know, this darkness is the approach of more stormy weather. Thats because its impossible to trust an ownership group that doesnt know football and apparently doesnt know anyone who knows football. If you really want to get to the heart of why the Bucs have turned into the swamp of little hope, start with the Glazers. This is two consecutive coaching hires theyve completely bungled. They hired Raheem Morris because they were too cheap to hire anyone else at the time. Then they hired college guy Greg Schiano because Chip Kelly turned them down. And Kelly turned them down because he took a second look at the pitiful roster assembled by Dominik another cheap swing-and-miss Glazer hire and deter mined he could not win in Tampa Bay. So what makes you Glazers dont merit confidenceBy TOM JONESTAMPA BAY TIMESJONES | 3 Ilk,lstm)

Her 3 from the corner with 2:20 remaining put the Wildcats away. Port Charlotte, playing in the Sapphire Divisions seventh-place game at 9 a.m., gained an early boost from Emily Treasure, who scored eight of her 14 points in the rst quarter. That helped the Pirates lead 17-10 after a quarter. Thats when Lindsey made her presence felt, scoring 10 points before picking up her third foul midway through the second quarter. Given a double-digit lead, the Pirates shortened the game with long possessions. Port Charlotte also stayed out of foul trouble in the second half. We wanted to wear down the clock. We wanted to play man-toman, but we got into foul trouble, Purcell said. Katie Marshall did a great job battling. Taylor did what she had to do, and Emily went at the bucket. Im proud of our effort.

She scored 16 of her game-high 26 points after intermission. She nished with ve 3-pointers. As a freshman she attacks the basket very well, Robishaw said. She draws contact, she goes up strong and she knows what we need out of her, outside and inside, being able to attack. Charlotte senior Rachel Bartell came off the bench to score 11 points and contribute four of the Tarpons 14 steals. She hit some clutch shots, Robishaw said. More importantly her steals on defense are what created those shots. She does a good job anticipating, she can jump, shes quick. So the two of them helped out a lot. Overall, I thought Michelle (Bunch) played really well inside against their big girls. Bunch and Carly Kotlarski had seven rebounds each. The Tarpons trailed 3128 the half. Lamb scored six points in the third period to give Charlotte a 35-34 lead, but Oasis held a 44-40 advantage entering the fourth quarter. It wasnt until the nal minutes that Charlotte took the lead for good. Bartell hit a pair of baskets to put her team up 50-47 with 2:55 to play.

The Sun /Tuesday, December 31, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 It didnt take long. Barely 12 hours after the NFLs regular season ended, ve head coaches were unemployed. Along with Tampa Bays Greg Schiano, Washingtons Mike Shanahan, Detroits Jim Schwartz and Minnesotas Leslie Frazier were also red on Monday. The Cleveland Browns didnt even wait that long, dismissing Rob Chudzinski on Sunday night after just one season on the job. Shanahan, who won two Super Bowls in Denver in the 1990s, spent four seasons with the Redskins and was 24-40. Frazier had a little more than three seasons with the Vikings to compile an 18-33-1 mark, and Schwartz coached the Lions for ve seasons, nishing 29-52. One coach allegedly on the hot seat was retained: Rex Ryan, who has one more year on his contract, is staying with the New York Jets after a surprising 8-8 record in his fth season at the helm. While some of the red coaches might have seen it coming, Chudzinski certainly didnt despite going 4-12 and losing his nal seven games and 10 of 11. I was shocked and disappointed to hear the news that I was red, said Chudzinski, who grew up a Browns fan. I am a Cleveland Brown to the core, and always will be. It was an honor to lead our players and coaches, and I appreciate their dedication and sacrice. I was more excited than ever for this team, as I know we were building a great foundation for future success. As the coaching searches begin, agents will oat the names of their clients Penn States Bill OBrien seems to be the hottest candidate and has interviewed for Houstons vacancy. The Texans (2-14), who own the top choice in Mays draft after losing their nal 14 games, released coach Gary Kubiak late in the season. Whoever gets hired in each place will face mammoth rebuilding projects. Overall, the six teams seeking new coaches went 24-71-1. Shanahan had one season remaining on a ve-year contract worth about $7 million a season. He blamed the Redskins salary cap restraints for part of the Redskins collapse from NFC East champion in 2012 to 3-13 and eight consecutive losses. But his real undoing, along with the poor records in three of his four seasons, was a contentious relationship with star quarterback Robert Grifn III. RG3 did not speak with the media on Monday. NFL: Coaches redCoaching carousel spinsBy BARRY WILNERASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOFormer Washington coach Mike Shanahan delivers a statement after being red on Monday. Mark Dominik, who took over in 2009 and averaged more than 10 losses per year over ve seasons. The Bucs nished with a 28-52 record during Dominiks tenure. The Glazers made the changes for two main reasons: They didnt see enough return on their recent investment in free agents and the trade for cornerback Darrelle Revis; and Schianos team failed to show signicant improvement in the second half of the season following a 0-8 start. The results over the past two years have not lived up to our standards and we believe the time has come to nd a new direction, said Bucs co-chairman Bryan Glazer in a statement. Mark has been a valued member of our organization for two decades and we respect the passion he showed for the Buccaneers. We thank Greg for his hard work and effort the past two seasons but we feel these moves are necessary in order to achieve our goals. Schiano and Dominik learned of their fate shortly after a team meeting and series of exit interviews. As players were packing their belongings in plastic garbage bags in the locker room, Schiano and Dominik were in a meeting with Bucs owners. Schiano then assembled his coaching staff, many of whom dont have contracts for next year, to tell them the news. Schiano has three years remaining on his contract with the Bucs. Dominik is believed to be signed through 2014. Bucs players were not necessarily surprised. Me, personally, I havent had any consistency in my career, defensive tackle Gerald McCoy said. Third head coach, going on my fth year, and if you add up everybody, this will be six (defensive) line coaches. Who do I learn from and what do I keep? I just take a little bit from everybody? I dont know. Schiano went 11-22 in his two years, including losing his rst eight games of 2013.FIREFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOTampa Bay coach Greg Schiano talks to his team during the fourth quarter of a game earlier this month in St. Louis.DOMINIK DAVIE Cleaning out his locker Monday, Miami Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace briey examined a pair of gloves and took a whiff before tossing them in the trash. The aroma of the Dolphins late-season collapse will linger, however. To make the postseason for the rst time in ve years, all Miami needed was to win one of its nal two games against the Buffalo Bills or the New York Jets. Instead, the Dolphins lost to both, ensuring another idle January. The swoon raises questions about the future of second-year coach Joe Philbin. A midseason bullying scandal still under NFL investigation might also weigh in any decision by owner Stephen Ross. Philbin said hes already looking toward 2014. When asked if he had received assurances from Ross that he would return next season, Philbin said, We havent even talked about any of that stuff. In the wake of a franchise-record 58 sacks allowed, offseason upgrades will focus on the offensive line, which was depleted by the bullying scandal when tackle Jonathan Martin left the team and guard Richie Incognito was suspended. Neither is expected back with Miami. For the Dolphins, the offseason began Monday. Defensive end Olivier Vernon surveyed the scene as players quietly packed up and slipped out of the locker room. Miserable, Vernon said. We expected to be game-planning for a team this weekend. NFL: MiamiNo dwelling for PhilbinAP PHOTOMiami coach Joe Philbin, left, and outside linebacker Koa Misi (55) watch the nal minutes of Sundays loss. By STEVEN WINEASSOCIATED PRESS think the Glazers are going to get the next hire right? Maybe the Bucs could get Jon Gruden to be their next coach. Yeah, that would be awesome! Hes everyones dream candidate. Oh wait, the Glazers already loused that up by ring him. Heres the perfect choice: Tony Dungy. Hes the most respected man in football. Oh yeah, the Glazers burned that bridge, too. Aint this a kick in the head: Two of the best candidates out there just happen to live in Tampa Bay and also just happen to be the only two people on planet Earth who would refuse to coach again for the Glazers. Meantime, the past two coaches the Bucs have hired would have trouble getting an interview, let alone becoming an NFL head coach again. That says an awful lot about the Glazers decision-making. It just seems that if theres a way to botch these things, the Glazers gure out a way to do it. So what do the Glazers do now? How do they x this mess? First, call Dungy and beg him for a meeting. Not to talk to him about being the next coach, but to ask for his advice. Ask former Bucs GM/now Falcons CEO Rich McKay if he wants to come back. Then transfer money from the Manchester United bank account into the Bucs account because this should not be cheap. If youre an NFL team, there are two things you cant skimp on: a head coach and a quarterback. Open the checkbook and bring in someone who knows what he is doing. Try to get Bill Belichick. Im not kidding. Offer the Patriots a pile of draft picks. Offer Belichick the world. Offer him more money than he can count. Give him crazy money, like $100 million over 10 years. Give him stock options. Offer to let him be coach, GM, president, king and any other title he wants. Let him park his paid-for Maserati on the sideline during games. Other than quarter back, there is no more important position on the team than head coach. Its so important that the Bucs have a history of paying guys not to coach in order to bring in someone new. So why not do whatever is necessary to get the very best? What are the chances of getting Belichick? Probably one in a million. But why not try? And this is the attitude the Glazers should take. No risks. No outside-the-box gambles. No this-is-crazy hunch. Go reliable. Get serious. Forget rah-rah college guys. Forget taking a ier on some coordinator with no real track record of being a head coach. Go after a proven commodity. The Bucs have reached out to Lovie Smith. Smart. Give him a long look. He cut his teeth professionally coaching here in Tampa Bay and took the Bears to a Super Bowl. Make a run at Bill OBrien. He turned around Penn State but isnt just a college guy. He has extensive and successful NFL experience, having worked with quarterback Tom Brady and under Belichick in New England. Make a call to Ken Whisenhunt. He knows offense and took the Cardinals to a Super Bowl. Bill Cowher? Sure. Any of them would bring this franchise instant credibility. Any of them would walk in the door and have immediate respect among the players. And any of them would excite a fan base that has lost faith. All are legitimate, proven, reliable NFL coaches. Pay them what you have to. Overpay them if you have to. There are others, but the Glazers should start with those. If they had their pick of the litter, it would make more sense to lean toward an offensive mind, but experience is a key here. Bring in someone who knows what hes doing. Because goodness knows, the owners dont appear to have a clue.JONESFROM PAGE 1 BLACK MONDAYThree other coaches joined Greg Schiano in being fired Monday. Of course, Cleveland got a head start by firing its coach Sunday night. The newly unemployed: Mike Shanahan (Redskins) Leslie Frazier (Vikings) Jim Schwartz (Lions) Rob Chudzinski (Browns) JACKSONVILLE Running back Maurice Jones-Drew wants to stick around for the next phase of Jacksonvilles rebuilding project. Just not at a discounted rate. Jones-Drew made it clear Monday that his future with the franchise will be a scal decision, meaning his eighth season with the Jaguars may have been his last. Jones-Drew likely will test free agency before deciding whether to return to Jacksonville. Gase not interviewing during playoffs: A team spokesman said Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase is postponing any interviews with other teams until after Denvers season is over. The Cleveland Browns sought permission to interview him about their vacant coaching position. Reed unsure what future holds: Veteran safety Ed Reed would like to keep playing, and for Rex Ryan and the New York Jets.

Page 4 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, December 31, 2013 SAN ANTONIO Quarterback Marcus Mariota had 386 total yards and No. 10 Oregon returned two interceptions for touchdowns, spoiling Texas coach Mack Browns farewell with a runaway 30-7 victory in the Alamo Bowl on Monday night. The BCS-snubbed Ducks (11-2) dominated throughout even though their famously high-powered offense scored just one touchdown, when Josh Huff turned a short pass from Mariota into a spectacular 16-yard sprint to the end zone. Brown received warm goodbyes from a sellout crowd in what was practically a home game for Texas (8-5). Even the school marching band spelled his name at halftime. But the blowout was a nal reminder of why Brown is resigning after 16 seasons at Texas, which he led to a national championship in 2005 but couldnt reverse a sharp decline in recent years. Walking off the eld for the last time, Brown ashed the Hook em Horns hand signal to the scattered remaining Texas fans who stuck around to the end of another humbling loss this season. Mariota led all rushers with 133 yards on 15 carries, making sure Oregon eased the sting of not playing in a BCS bowl for the rst time in ve years. He was 18 of 26 for 253 yards passing in his Heisman Trophy campaign tuneup for 2014. Yet even Mariota was outscored by Oregons defense and so was Texas, for that matter. Texas quarterback Case McCoy threw two interceptions that were returned for touchdowns, including one on the third play of the game. Avery Patterson intercepted an over thrown pass and took it 37 yards to the endzone. Derrick Malone took one 38 yards at the end of the game and sent waves of burnt orange-clad streaming towards the exits. Navy 24, Middle Tennessee State 6: In Fort Worth, Texas, Keenan Reynolds ran for two more touchdowns and Navy won the Armed Forces Bowl for only its second win in its last seven bowl games. Reynolds, who already owns the NCAA record for touchdowns rushing by a quarterback, upped his total to 31 to match Colorado State running back Kapri Bibbs, also a sophomore, for the national lead this season. Mississippi 25, Georgia Tech 17: In Nashville, Tenn., Bo Wallace ran for two touchdowns and threw for another score as the Rebels won the Music City Bowl for the teams second straight bowl victory under coach Hugh Freeze. Mississippi (8-5) has won six consecutive bowls and 10 of the last 11 in making up for the lone loss in that stretch, the 2000 Music City Bowl. Blue Devils coach wins Bobby Dodd award: David Cutcliffe, who led Duke to its first 10-win season and a spot in the ACC championship game, has been named the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year. Cutcliffes No. 22 Blue Devils will play No. 20 Texas A&M in tonights Chick-fil-A Bowl, the first time Duke will play in back-to-back bowl games. Cutcliffe also was named the Walter Camp and Maxwell Award coach of the year this year. Governor speaks to Auburn players: Gov.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL ROUNDUPDucks spoil Browns final game at TexasBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS TEBOW JOINS SEC NETWORKATLANTA (AP) Tim Tebow has his next football job talking about the sport on TV.

Andrew Wiggins also had 20 points and fellow freshman Joel Embiid had 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Jayhawks (9-3), who built a 16-point lead early in the second half. Toledo (12-1) made one nal charge, using some hot outside shooting and sloppiness on the part of Kansas to get within 81-73 on a 3-pointer by Julius Brown with 3:23 left in the game. Tharpe answered moments later with a free throw and then a driving layup off a miss, and Kansas nally put the game away when Frank Mason fed Wiggins on a run-out for an easy dunk that gave the Jayhawks an 88-76 lead with less than 2 minutes remaining.

Sharapova beat 74thranked Caroline Garcia of France 6-3, 6-0 Monday, ripping forehand winners and nullifying her rivals biggest weapon with some aggressive service returns. She chased down balls to turn the tempo of games when she was behind, and celebrated break points with triple st pumps even when the result was beyond doubt. The four-time major winner played only one match following an early exit at Wimbledon last season due to a right shoulder injury. She showed no signs of soreness in advancing to the second round at the Brisbane International. In Beijing, second-seeded Sara Errani and third-seeded Klara Zakopalova advanced to the second round of the Shenzhen Open. In Doha, Qatar, fourth-seeded Tomas Berdych lost his first match of the season, falling to Ivo Karlovic at the Qatar Open. In Chennai, India, fifth-seeded Vasek Pospisil of Canada beat wildcard entry Kyle Edmund of Britain 6-3, 7-5 Monday to reach the second round of the Chennai Open.AUTO RACINGSchumacher remains in critical condition: Former Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher is in aFrench hospital after hitting his head on a rock while skiing in the Alps this weekend. He fell into a coma and underwent brain surgery. The hospital said late Sunday he was in critical condition, and doctors will give an update on his condition soon.HOCKEYCanada advances in World Juniors: In Malmo, Sweden, Nic Petan broke a tie on a power play with 2:46 left in Canadas 5-3 comeback victory over Slovakia in the world junior hockey tournament. Canada (2-0-1) wrapped up a spot in the playoff round entering its Group A finale today against the defending champion United States (3-0-0).WINTER SPORTSU.S. speedskater injured in post-practice collision: In Kearns, Utah, Speedskater Theresa Cliff-Ryan was injured after being hit by a skater going full speed and landing on her head. She was standing with her back to the ice talking to other skaters after her workout when she was hit by Kevin Geminder, who fell and smashed into her, flipping her in the air. Trainers raced to put a neck brace on the 35-year-old skater before she was placed on a stretcher and taken by ambulance to the hospital. Kelly Gunther earned a berth on the U.S. team in the 1,000 meters, and hopes to earn one in the 1,500 meters today, completing a comeback from a devastating crash that sidelined her in March 2010. Off to a poor start during pre-Olympics races, U.S. ski racer Julia Mancuso said shes taking a short break at home. Mancuso has won three Olympic medals but has only one top-15 finish through 10 World Cup races this season leading up to the Sochi Games.SAILINGWinner declared in Hobart: Victoire was declared the handicap winner of the Sydney to Hobart race Monday, 1 days after Wild Oats XI took line honors in the annual yachting classic. Victoire is a Cookson 50 owned by Sydney plastic surgeon Darryl Hokdgkinson and formerly known as Jazz. It was ninth across the line Sunday morning. The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia declared it the handicap winner when main challenger, Wild Rose, ran out of time at 7 a.m. Monday. Thirty-eight boats had finished, 46 were still racing and 10 had retired when the winner was announced. CHICAGO Antti Raanta made 26 saves in his rst NHL shutout and Brandon Saad scored as the Chicago Blackhawks beat Los Angeles 1-0 on Monday night and sent the Kings to their rst three-game losing streak in a year. With Blackhawks No. 1 goalie Corey Crawford nearing a return from a lower-body injury, Raanta improved to 10-1-3 while bouncing back from one of his worst performances. He allowed two late goals in Chicagos 6-5 shootout loss at St. Louis on Saturday. Saad netted the only goal in this one in the rst period. Chicago, which leads the NHL with 158 goals, played its lowest-scoring game since a 2-1 shootout win at Dallas on Nov. 29. Los Angeles Martin Jones made 29 saves in his second straight loss after beginning his career with eight consecutive wins, tying the NHL record. Predators 6, Red Wings 4: In Nashville, Tenn., Colin Wilson had two goals and an assist, and Mike Fisher scored a goal and helped set up two others in Nashvilles win. Craig Smith, Nick Spaling and Roman Josi also scored. Senators 3, Capitals 1: In Ottawa, Ontario, Kyle Turris goal helped Ottawa beat Washington and earn its first winning streak in 51 days. The Senators have won three straight at home for the first time this season. Around the league: The Calgary Flames acquired forward Kevin Westgarth from the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday for minor league forward Greg Nemisz.

Page 6 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, December 31, 2013 AMANDA CARROlympic BMX hopeful After finishing fifth in the qualifying for the U.S. BMX team for the London Games in 2012, Amanda Carr changed international allegiences, opting to wear the colors of her mothers native Thailand. But there was more unexpected change in Carrs quest for the Olympics this year. Longtime coach Greg Romero walked out on Carr, forcing her into a little self-examination. I laughed I didnt know what else to do, Carr said. You cant complain about it. I just laughed at it. Then I kept moving forward. That paid off when Carr finished third in September at a World Cup race in Chula Vista, Calif., at the U.S. Olympic BMX training facility her best World Cup finish. To go back a year later after switching my nationality and getting on the box (podium) for the first time, she said, it couldnt have been a sweeter place to do it.SOPHIE CATTERMOLE200-yard individual medley state champion For a first-time state champion, Sophie Cattermole didnt have the reaction you might expect. After touching the wall in her 200 IM final, she turned around and stared at her time on the scoreboard of the Sailfish Splashpark Aquatic Athletics Center in Stuart: 2 minutes, 0.39 seconds. Which prompted a tiny bit of disappointment at not breaking two minutes as she had wanted. I looked at the clock and I didnt see 1:59-whatever and I was really sad, but Im glad I won, Cattermole said. Once I got to the warm down pool, I realized I won and I was like, Yay. This is amazing. I never won anything really at a huge meet, so this is amazing. Cattermole finished second in the 100 freestyle. She earned all-American status in both events. The state title came one year after she had finished second in both events as a sophomore.JULIA FOWLIEState champion pole vaulter It wasnt just Julia Fowlie pole vaulting 11 feet that was amazing she had been doing that for much of the track and field season, sometimes when the rest of the field was long gone. It was doing it to win a state championship in Jacksonville and in the toughest conditions Charlottes junior vaulter had seen all season. (Conditions) were horrible, Fowlie said. Pouring rain, windy. Pretty windy. Cold or maybe just cold because I was sick. No bowl of cherries was last springs Class 3A state meet. It was a situation where the only reason she was still out there was there was no lightning in the area, Charlotte track co-coach Jerry Voss said. It was miserable to watch. Fowlie deadlocked with Pine Forests Christina Wiggins for first place at 11 feet even. Eventually, meet officials relented and awarded both athletes first-place medals.CHARLOTTE STONE CRABSIf at first you dont succeed ... Perhaps fitting for a team that didnt start clicking until a month into the season, the Charlotte Stone Crabs needed extra innings to advance to the Florida State League championship series, finishing off the Fort Myers Miracle 2-1 in 10 innings to sweep the South Division playoffs. The Stone Crabs received eight shutout innings from Dylan Floro and a little luck from a bit of wildness, scoring their two runs in the 10th on a wild pitch and a passed ball. They made some mistakes and we capitalized, Charlotte manager Brady Williams said. In a game like this, youll take them any way you can. The Stone Crabs started the season 8-22, but came around. They finished 10 games behind Fort Myers for the season, but were at their best at the end with players such as outfielder Willie Argo and Alejandro Segovia playing big roles.LEMON BAY GIRLS 3,200-METER RELAYOh, my, Mantas! We could have given the nod to the Mantas girls track team, but the entire team that Lemon Bay took to the state meet last spring could be found in the 4x800 relay. Sophomore Nicole Mis struggled with injuries for much of the season, but she made for a formidable duo with freshman Abby Weinfeld when healthy. Together with junior Sydni Ogilvie and sophomore Haley Blem, the four distance standouts combined to finish sixth as a team at the state meet. The quartet broke the schools 3,200 relay record and placed fourth in the state. But they also had individual state success Mis took second (1,600) and fourth (800), Weinfeld placed third (1,600) and sixth (3,200) and newcomer Blem finished ninth (800). The letdown came when Mis stepped away from running in the fall to concentrate on academics, so last spring might have been the last weve seen of this group in its entirety.NORTH PORT BOYS TRACKWith a little help from their foes North Port coach Tony Miller stood in the Leto High School stands, rooting on district rival Sarasota-Riverview in the final event of the Region 4A-2 meet. Unusual? Sure. But there was a bit of history at stake as the Bobcats needed Riverview to finish ahead of Newsome in the 1,600-meter relay to preserve its lead at the regional meet. They got it, edging Newsome 72-70 to win North Ports first regional championship in any sport. This is big, Miller said. I think a lot of people know now where North Port High School is. Senior RoDerick Spears swept to wins in the two hurdles events and Bobcat high jumpers Ibsen Marcial and Luke Hogue finished one-two in the event to help spur the team on. Spears went on to pick up a pair of fifth-place finishes at the state track meet, his best finish at the meet.FGCU mens basketballStraight to the Sweet 16 Florida Gulf Coast made southwest Florida proud with not one, but two surprise wins in the NCAA tournament. After winning the Atlantic Sun tourna ment to earn the first Division I NCAA tournament trip in school history, the Eagles beat second-seeded Georgetown 78-68 in their first tournament game, becoming the seventh 15-seed to pull off an upset. Two days later, they beat No. 7 San Diego State 81-71 to become the first 15-seed to advance to the Sweet 16. FGCU, which joined Division I in the summer of 2011, earned the attention of the nation not only by winning games, but also by doing so with an exciting brand of basketball that earned the team the Dunk City nickname. In July, the team celebrated its accomplishment with a trip to the ESPYs, where it won the award for best upset.Mother NatureShe had a winning season In a year full of rain and lightning, weather ravaged the second week of the high school football season. In the first year of schools using the new lightning detection system, five area teams were kept in the locker room all night on Friday, Sept. 6. All three Charlotte County high schools had home football games cancelled, while DeSoto County and North Port both had road games lightning-ed out. It was the epitome of a frustrating fall season for coaches and athletes where lightning, and heeding the warnings of the new detection system, brought premature ends to many practices and events. It was the only night, however, that football games were not played.Davids debutFrom Pirate to Diamondback Former Port Charlotte High School pitcher David Holmberg, a 2009 graduate, made his major league debut with Arizona on Aug. 27 in Arizona. The 22-year-old allowed three runs on six hits in 3 innings the Diamondbacks won in what would be his only appearance of the season. Holmberg was traded to Cincinnati during the offseason in a move that also involved the Rays, which got catcher Ryan Hanigan and pitcher Heath Bell. Its the second time Holmberg has been traded in his career he was originally drafted by the Chicago White Sox.Sharks setbackImagine sports struggle Imagine School athletic programs took a step back when football coach Jeppe Bennetsen was relieved of his duties on Oct. 1. Many players left the team, including star running back Elijah Mack, who transferred to Charlotte. The lack of players caused the Sharks to forfeit three of their last four games, putting a damper on the its first varsity season. The fallout of Bennetsens firing trickled down to other sports as well. Boys basketball coach John Flynn resigned and returned to an assistant role at Venice, and athletic director Rudi Banuelos announced a few weeks later that the school would be leaving the district in boys basketball to play as an independent.The summer of CobbFrom concussion to comeback One-time Charlotte Stone Crabs and current Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Alex Cobb was the talk of the baseball world this past summer after suffering a freak injury in a game against the Kansas City Royals. Cobb was hit in the side of the head by a line drive off Eric Hosmers bat, a scary-looking injury that gave Cobb a concussion. It was the second time a pitcher took a line drive to the head last season (Blue Jays J.A. Happ was the first), stirring up discussion about pitchers wearing helmets. Cobb made rehab starts with the Stone Crabs before making a triumphant return with the Rays, finishing the season 11-3 with a 2.76 ERA and pitching 6scoreless innings in the teams 4-0 victory in the American League Wild Card game. M OSTMaking the2013ofSUN FILE PHOTO BY KATHERINE GODINA Charlotte High Schools Julia Fowlie competes in the pole vault at the Region 3A-3 meet in Punta Gorda last season. Fowlie won a state title in the event, clearing 11 feet in challenging conditions and while under the weather. In looking back on 2013 from the preps to the pros, Sun Sports has chosen the most of what made the past year one to remember. Here are the people, moments and teams that impacted the Southwest Florida sports scene.MOST INTERESTING PEOPLEJORDAN INGMANPort Charlotte football coach After Port Charlotte had defeated Bishop Verot in the new coach Jordan Ingmans first spring football game two springs ago, the young coach was a tough man to spot in the crowd babyfaced and 5-foot-9 among the mass of players in uniforms and pads. He sort of blends in, one assistant coach quipped. A little more than four months earlier, Port Charlotte had made the bold move of hiring Ingman (then 22) to take over the football program. If Ingman blended in before, the Pirates stood out in 2013 as Ingman had the team buying into his system and his up-tempo practices. The result was Port Charlottes most successful football season in school history: The Pirates finished the season with a school-best 10-2 record and its first district championship, first playoff win, second straight regular season victory over rival Charlotte and advancing to the regional final.BRADY WILLIAMSStone Crabs manager When youre a young baseball manager and all youve done lately is to exceed expectations, your bosses are likely to ask you to merely keep on keepin on. First-year Charlotte Stone Crabs manager Brady Williams arrived in Port Charlotte after guiding the Midwest Leagues Bowling Green Hot Rods to an 80-60 record and a second-half title in 2012. With a handful of his those Bowling Green players following him to Charlotte Sports Park, similar results were expected. Charlotte stumbled out of the gate. But Williams guided the Stone Crabs to a 38-27 second-half mark, capturing the South Divisions second-half crown. This was the most gratifying season I have been a part of, Williams said. At 8-22, you are looking at yourself and asking am I really that good? The tenacity of these guys to grind it out and work hard ... it paid off for them in the second half.NORTH PORT GIRLS CROSS COUNTRYThey were not merely freshmen Freshman Maddison Krstec led a North Port charge at the Region 4A-2 meet, surging to a second-place finish and boosting the Bobcats to a second-place team finish and a ticket to the state meet. Not content with regional glory, the Bobcats placed fifth at state. Pretty good for a team that featured four freshman, but that offered a hint of what could still be ahead. The success the Bobcats only had one senior: Shannon Collins was a far cry from the previous season. We only had five girls last year, Bobcats coach Jim Simpson said. We couldnt even qualify as a team. So I really didnt know what to expect this season. But right from the start, all the girls clicked. They took things into their own hands and decided to make this season special.PORT CHARLOTTE FOOTBALLPirate pride Port Charlotte checked off a lot of boxes in authoring perhaps the first great football team in its history, including its first district title and first playoff win. For that matter, its first two playoff wins. The Pirates dominated their first four weeks against teams (Lemon Bay, Mariner, Lehigh, Lely) who had won a combined one game to that point. Some looked at the schedule and waited for Port Charlotte to wilt. It didnt happen. The Pirates throttled district contender Fort Myers 43-18 at Pirates Cove on Oct. 4, spurred by a 95-yard kickoff return for a score by Anthony Stephens. They won 33-28 at Charlotte, getting a late fourth-quarter drive capped by a Martin Luther touchdown run and an interception by Jake Hobbs to seal it. Then they won their first two playoff games, including a 35-0 stunner against Melbourne. By then, the early season slate was long forgotten. MOST MEMORABLE MOMENTS MOST COMPELLING TEAMSSUN PHOTO BY TOM ONEILLPort Charlotte High Schools Jake Hobbs rallies the crowd before the Pirates 33-28 win against Charlotte this season.

The Sun Classified Page 10E/N/Cads.yoursun.netT uesday, December 31, 2013 ZITSByJerryScott&JimBorgman GARFIELDByJimDavis FRESHLYSQUEEZEDByEdStein DILBERTByScottAdams REXM O R G ANByWoodyW i lsonand G rahamNolan MARYWORTHByKarenMoyandJoeGiellaDEAR DR. ROACH: I have a torn meniscus and it has been recommended that I have arthroscopic surgery. I scheduled the surgery after the orthopedic surgeon stated that I would be up and r esuming my life three to ve days after the surgery. It sounded so matter of fact and relatively easy that I didnt ask any more questions. I could handle this recovery. Then, as time went on, other people, friends or strangers who had this type of surgery provided r ecovery stories, but none of them were as short term as I was lead to believe. Stories varied from Piece of cake to O h no, you will be on crutches for two weeks then six weeks of rehab. A physicians assistant in the surgeons ofce described an even longer r ecovery. I need to know. With my job, I am in and out of my car and walk quite a bit making sales calls. I have a wintertime golf trip planned that I would like to be good as new for and enjoy. How far in advance of the trip should I schedule the surgery? J.D. ANSWER: The menisci are doughnut-shaped structures that sit on top of the tibia and provide support for the femur both bones of the lower leg helping to keep the femur from moving out of place, and acting as a shock absorber. A meniscus can be torn by a sports injury, but it also can be torn just by usual movement and some degeneration of the cartilage, particularly in those over age 50. Most tears get better with conservative measures, including physical therapy and anti-inammatory medications, and only a minority require surgery. U nfortunately, I cant give you a precise time period for your recovery. I have occasionally seen the three to ve days y our surgeon reported, but that is certainly the optimistic side of things. S ix weeks denitely is on the long side. So much depends on your physical condition going into surgery and the acuity and extent of the tear and surgery required to repair it. Cer tainly, physical therapy after surgery is the best way of recovering quickly and as completely as possible. DEAR DR. ROACH: I have plantar fasciitis inammation in my left heel/foot. My podiatrist r ecommends having a hyprocure implant put into my ankle joint to alleviate the pain. I am not so sure about having a metal bolt in my ankle. I am 50 years old and in good health, otherwise. Can you talk a little bit about this procedure: pros and cons? K.K.M. ANSWER: Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain. The plantar fascia is a band of tough tissue that connects the toes with the heel bone, and it can become inamed from exercise, especially runn ing and jumping. It usually is treated with r est, ice, anti-inammatories and stretching. Good shoes with padding are essential; wearing heel cups during the day and splints at night helps many people. Mo st people with plantar fasciitis get better without surgery. I looked up the hyprocure device but couldnt nd anything, apart from information provided by the company that makes the device. I would seek a second opinion prior to any kind of surgery. READERS: The booklet on hepatitis explains the three different kinds A, B and C.

Here are some hints to keep you safe: Park as close to a store entrance or elevator as possible. Look around, and be aware of your surroundings. Look for people just sitting in cars watching everyone else, or cars just circling. Park near light poles. Do not return to your car to place items in the trunk and then head back into the store. You might think this is safe, but there are people who watch, then break into your trunk! If you do put things in the trunk, try to move to another parking spot so it looks like you are leaving. Dont take your whole wallet. Take only a few credit cards that you will need. Pickpockets love women with a big purse stuffed full of things.

The bank marked one of the charges as fraud and contacted us. We we re told that whoever placed the orders had the correct numbers, including the three-digit security code. We didnt have to pay for the charges, and the bank canceled that card and issued a new one. The bank told us the person using our card probably was making small charges, and when they cleared, the person would make a large charge. I realized that my security code hadnt been required other than at online sites. I dont understand why that security code is imprinted on cards. Bo bbie in TexasDouble upDear Heloise: Ever y day I would get frustrated when taking a shower, because it was obvious that the shower curtain was not quite long enough to stay in the tub and keep water from getting out. Then I came up with this hint: I bought another set of shower-curtain hooks to add to the first set of hooks. I hooked one hook onto the one hanging off the rod, and essentially doubled the length. The shower curtain now hangs low enough, and the problem is solved!

HOROSCOPE DEAR ABBY: Have you any advice for how a person can handle mornings better? No matter what I do, I start off every work day irritated and grumpy. I love the mornings, and even get up early so I can enjoy sitting with my coffee and relax before heading out the door. But as soon as I get out into trafc, Im immediately in a bad mood. Then, sitting down at work and facing all the emails that come in from my global associates usually about some emergency that is plopped in my lap puts me in more of a foul mood. I actually like my job, despite what it sounds like. I just hate starting off every day like this. T elecommuting is not an option for me. What can I do? MS. GRUMP IN DENVER DEAR MS. GRUMP: OK, so youre ne until y ou leave the house. M any people who nd morning rush hour to be nerve-wracking nd it calming to listen to audio books or music during their commute. If that doesnt help you, and it is feasible, consider using another form of transportation thats less stressful. And when you arrive at work, take a little time to decompress before turning on your computer, whether it is with meditation or deep-breathing exercises for the rst 10 or 15 minutes. Both can do wonders for a persons outlook. DEAR ABBY: A cute little girl lives up the street from my husband and me and attends the same church we do. A few years ago we taught her in a Sunday school class. At the time, she developed a crush on my husband. We both laughed about it then and thought it was sweet. F ast-forward three y ears, and its not so sweet anymore. Its downright awkward. She runs up to my husband multiple times while were at church, while ignoring me. Last Sunday, she turned to me as she did it and announced, Hes mine! I stood there thinking, Uh, no hes MINE. I know this jealous re action may seem silly and Im trying hard not to feel this way, but it felt like I was ghting over my husband with an 8-year-old. He is aware of her crush and how I feel about it, but he doesnt want to hurt her feelings. Her mother knows about the crush, and we shared a laugh early on. What can I do? Would speaking to the girls mother help? What should I say? Or would it make things more awkward? NO LONGER AMUSED IN OGDEN, UTAH DEAR NO LONGER AMUSED: The cute little neighbor girl is no longer 5. Three years is a long time for a child to hang onto a crush. Because her behavior bothers you, tell her mother you nd it excessive at this point and ask her to tell her daughter shes getting too old to act that way. Its the truth, and your husb and should back you up. DEAR ABBY: I thought Id share my own New Ye ars resolution with you. F or the past 25 years I have made the following re solution: Each day I will ask myself, What is the kindest, most loving thing I can say or do at this particular moment? I invite your readers to consider this. WAYNE IN PUYALLUP, WASH. DEAR WAYNE: I consider it a refreshingly positive way to start a day, and Im sure others will agree and add it to their list of New Ye ars resolutions. Thank yo u for sharing it. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 1 Timothy 6:9 If you thought money was the answer to all your problems, stop and consider this truth.
