DEADLY SUGAR?
Could too much sugar be deadly? The biggest study of its kind suggests the
answer is yes, at least when it comes to fatal heart problems.

LIFE STORIES


Betty Moment

spurs big loss

S-a', .b | three numbers
| about Lenny
S \ J.1 Hills:
(1)378
M (2) 272
(3) 235
The first is the
number of the
pounds Lenny lugged
on his 6-foot frame a
Steve year ago.
The second is his
BAUMANN weight now.
The third is what he
COLUMNIST i i *i
hopes the scale will
read by the end of April.
"The closer I get, the harder it is," he said
Monday, standing outside the Youfit Health
Club and dressed all in black
"I'm mourning my loss of fat."
Lenny, 41, moved to North Port in 1986
and attendedVenice High School, where
he played football and baseball. After
graduation, he entered one of the world's
topnotch fitness programs: The U.S.
Marine Corps.
Oorah!
Lenny was lean and mean, as they say,
although he seems a genuinely nice and
easy-going guy. He said his five years in the
Corps left him in "world-class shape."
Returning home, Lenny took on a job
with the North Port Police Department. He
also took on a few extra pounds, then a few
more and a few more, etc.
Up to 378.
"I might have been heavier," he said,
"but I avoided the scale."
Then, last year, Lenny went out on a call.
"And there was an older lady that kind of
embarrassed me due to my weight.
"I knew I had an issue," he said. "You're
struggling with that within yourself."
But Lenny didn't do anything about it.
Until the Betty Moment.
"This old lady, Betty, embarrassed me,
called me out in front of my co-workers, in
front of some firefighters," Lenny said.
"I was mortified."
A short time later, Lenny said, he was
called to another incident.
"And as I arrived I'm thinking, here come
those same firefighters again. Great. These
guys again."
Turned out to be the turning point.
Firefighter Tanya Schultz pulled Lenny
aside and opened up about her own
struggles with weight before she joined the
department.
"It kind of inspired me," Lenny said.
"I went home. I parked my car and went
straight to the gym."
That was last April 26. Since then,
Lenny's missed only two days.
He lifts weights and does aerobics two-
three hours a day. On his days off, he pulls
two-a-days. He runs 20-30 miles a week.
Intake counts too. Lenny sticks to high
protein, low carbs, "a lot of chicken, a lot of
vegetables, more fish."
"It's not a diet," he said, "it's a lifestyle
change.
"At first it was kind of tough, but I know I
wanted to attain my goals and stay on track
and be regimented."
Single-tracked.
"I actually treated myself to a pizza last
week for the first time in a year," Lenny
said. "It was good, but I felt like I cheated
myself by eating it."
He also followed realistic, incremental
goals.
Goal one was to lose 50 pounds. Then to
drop below 300. Then to hit 235, his Marine
weight.
When he does he's aiming for his one-
year anniversary in April Lenny expects
to go back and see Betty again.
"I might just send her a fruit basket to
say, 'thanks,'" he said.
And he'll push on toward 200.
"I've worked too hard to get here. I'm not
going to revert back to where I was."
One more thing: advice for others?
"It's never too late to start. Anybody can
do it if you set your mind to it. You've just
got to be prepared to meet your Betty."

Mission: Parkside


Community team wants shovels in the ground


By GARY ROBERTS
STAFF WRITER
MURDOCK Parkside residents are
pushing for a variety of improvement
projects and initiatives they say are key
to the community's revitalization.
At the Jan. 21 County Commission
workshop, members of the Team
Parkside neighborhood group identi-
fied priorities to be undertaken with
a portion of the $9 million authorized
for the Parkside community redevel-
opment area. The proposed improve-
ments, stakeholders said, would help


transform the aging neighborhood
into a more aesthetic and healthy
community.
But the Parkside CRA was created
four years ago, and homeowners and
stakeholders are clamoring to see
progress begin.
"We can't tell you how anxious we
are to see the work get going," said
Tom Rice, CEO of Fawcett Memorial
Hospital and Team Parkside chair.
The list of projects, all in various
stages of design or concept, in-
clude the beautification of Harbor
Boulevard, Elkcam Boulevard


enhancements, a full upgrade of
McGuire Park and other proposals.
Making Harbor Boulevard into a
signature community gateway calls
for a landscaped median and curbs
and gutters for the four-lane road,
from U.S. 41 to Olean Boulevard, along
with wide, multiuse pathways on both
sides, lighting and shade trees.
The $4.4 million project would be
paid from tax increment financing,
which last year brought in $42,773.
Additionally, there would be an

outside the Charlotte County Administration Building in Murdock

borrowed Gasgarth's flag for various ceremonies and events.

Dragon Boat races extinguished


By BRENDA BARBOSA
STAFF WRITER
PUNTA GORDA Just three years
after the popular dragon boat races
roared into town, it appears they've
sputtered out.
Race supporters confirmed
that the 2014 Dragon Boat races
on Charlotte Harbor have been
canceled.
According to Punta Gorda


Chamber of Commerce president
John Wright, the boat races have
been in the red for the last two years.
The Chamber has financially sup-
ported the event since its inception
three years ago. This year, a lack
of participation, conflicting event
schedules and competition from
other dragon boat races across the
state, forced organizers to call it
quits, he said.
"In order to make the event


financially viable even just to
break even we needed between
28 and 30 boats," Wright said. "We
had that the first year, but we did not
have the second or third year. In fact,
the third year was the lowest number
of boats we've ever had."
Mailers were sent out to past years'
competitors asking if they were
interested in this year's races, and

Crime lab breach could affect local cases


By ADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER
State officials have begun reviewing
thousands of cases including a doz-
en from the Charlotte County Sheriff's
Office that may have been affected
by evidence tampering from a supervi-
sor at a crime lab in Pensacola.
DeSoto County also is among the
35 counties that may be affected.
"Teams of sworn personnel were de-
ployed throughout the state (Monday)

to begin reviewing potentially impact-
ed cases," said Florida Department
of Law Enforcement spokeswoman
Samantha Andrews.
Last week, the FDLE began an inves-
tigation into missing prescription pain
pills from the evidence room at the


Escambia County Sheriff's Office. The
pills had been replaced with over-the-
counter drugs.
The chemist believed to be at fault
- crime lab analyst supervisor Joseph
Graves resigned Monday, and the
FDLE is now reviewing all cases he
processed at Pensacola Regional Crime
Laboratory, Andrews said.
Graves worked over 2,500 cases

Director leaves Chamber


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

ENGLEWOOD In
November, Debby Beck
was hired and ready
to serve as the new
executive director of
the Englewood-Cape
Haze Area Chamber of
Commerce.
Monday she an-
nounced her resigna-
tion as the chamber's
executive director.
"With great regret,
I am leaving the
chamber," Beck said
Monday. She said she
had "such high hopes
and plans" to help
boost morale of the


chamber membership.
Beck intends to
stay in Englewood as
a private consultant
for businesses and
nonprofits.
"I'm not leaving
town," she said. "I
love Englewood. I can
better serve Englewood
apart from the
chamber."
Elaine Miller was
installed as the cham-
ber's president Friday.
In her installation
speech, she addressed
the vacancy left with
Beck's departure.
"The currently va-
cant position of exec-
utive director denotes


that our organization
is still undergoing a
leadership transition,"
Miller said. "The level
of expertise that the
(chamber board) is
striving for has not
been realized.
"A passionate per-
sonal connection to the
organization's mission
and leveraged interest
and compassion for
its members must be
coupled with financial
savvy, visionary leader-
ship, and management
experience is essen-
tial," she said.
The chamber board
meets Wednesday and
is expected to discuss

the response, Wright
said, was "limited."
In addition, the
number of dragon boat
races held across the
state has grown over the
years many of them in
larger venues, on calmer
waters and with more
teams.
"So we decided to put
the event on hiatus for
2014 and regroup to see
whether in fact this is
something we can bring
back in 2015," Wright
said. "And if so, when? Is
there a time slot within
the dragon boat associa-

be better than the April

are the local teams going

Harbor Boulevard project

relocation, officials said.
Elkcam Boulevard, at
a price tag of $652,000,
would also feature a
10-foot wide pathway,
part of a walking/biking
loop along Harbor

More trees and irrigation

Another key element

Commissioner Duffy
also is in favor of moving

"We really need to have
something that's under
construction," she said.
"One of the fastest things

Truex said he wants to

officials are embarking on
a pilot project in Parkside,
paid for with $5,000 in
TIF money, that would
use a clear Plexiglas rath-
er than plywood to board
up abandoned buildings
until they are fixed up

only make them more

allow law enforcement to
look inside the homes for

I OUR VIEW

DiDio served

county well through

tough times

despite working for Char-
lotte County since 1986
and serving as chief of the
Fire/EMS department for the past
14 years, most residents probably
didn't know Dennis DiDio. That's
a good thing. A headline-grabbing
fire chief is not what a community
needs. What it needs is a Dennis
DiDio, a chief who rose through
the ranks of the department and
got things done that needed to be
done.
As Sun StaffWriter Gary
Roberts pointed out, that meant
putting out fires, both literally
and figuratively. A drawn-out
dispute with the firefighters union
was the latest one. As DiDio
said, "I learned to work together
with the fire union. I came up
through the ranks. We have a great
relationship."
Well before that, DiDio under-
went another trial by fire in the
form of Hurricane Charley, which
destroyed three fire stations and
heavily damaged four others.
DiDio never received the type of
public applause that other hurri-
cane recovery heroes have, but he
never sought it, either. There was
work to do.
That work included establishing
a Special Operations team, in-
cluding one to handle hazardous
materials. In the years after 9/11,
public safety organizations had to
be prepared for anything. He also
added a marine unit and an air-
port rescue and firefighting squad.
Even as his department grew from
100 people to 240, DiDio had to
manage the expansion under
severe budgetary conditions.
He targeted inefficiencies and
streamlined his top ranks in order
to keep more firefighters and
emergency medical technicians in
the field.
The turnout at his retirement
ceremony Monday a U.S. flag
hung between ladder engines at
the administration building -
stands as a testament to his lon-
gevity and fair-mindedness. DiDio
served Charlotte County well and
we wish him the best as he bids
his adopted home goodbye.


Drug program

needs a tweak
rug Free Charlotte County
gave a party recently, and
no one came.
The substance-abuse preven-
tion group, which targets school-
age youths, planned a big night
with a DJ, prizes to give away
and other promotions at Port
Charlotte High School. The event
was scheduled prior to a home
basketball game a sure way to
draw a crowd.
DFCC leadership was, to say the
least, disappointed when not one
teenager showed up.
Diane Ramseyer, DFCC direc-
tor, was quick to point out the
group's success in lowering the
use of drugs and alcohol among
Charlotte County students. Her
message would be "we are doing
our job and we do it well."
She would be right, to a point.
Drug Free Charlotte County
has had success. It does make a
difference.
But, at a recent roundtable
discussion and in response to
a Developmental Assets survey
given all Charlotte County high
school students, there were
flaws pointed out in the group's
approach-- and in the general
relationship between the commu-
nity and teens.
Teenagers, who said they feel
they are not valued, said they
have little input into DFCC events.
They criticized that they often feel
judged and preached to by adults.
For all the good DFCC has
done, any program can become
stagnant without change. It may
be time to implement some
new strategies and refresh the
message. And, the best place to


develop those strategies would be
to go to the teens themselves for
their ideas.

LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

What will we
outsource next?

Editor:
OUTSOURCING 911 seems
to be another business that the
majority of city commissioners
cannot run either ... so they
say, sell it or get someone else
to run it.
This semi-fictitious $8 mil-
lion they are going to save on
outsourcing the 911 Dispatch
service is none other than
the wages of the 12 dispatch
operators who are serving our
community so well. Let's see
now: 12 x 40 hrs. @ $16 per hour
= $7,680 x 52 weeks per year =
$400,000. Now when you add
the 20 years of this potential
savings, this comes up to the
$8 million the City was going to
save by giving the 911 service
to Sarasota County.... Do they
really think the county is going
to do this for nothing?
When we no longer have a
911 dispatch service in North
Port and because someone
in Sarasota can't find some of
our strange street assignments
and someone dies from lack
of response, who is going to
be sued? Yes, we had better
put some of that savings in
an escrow account to pay for
claims. And another thing,
when the city gives away its 911
emergency service, what is next
... Sarasota County to take over
the police department and then
firefighters/paramedics too ...
stands to reason doesn't it. I'd
say, let's run the city as a busi-
ness, and if they can't do it, lets
"outsource" the commissioners.

Teachers, schools
doing great job

Editor:
I feel I have to respond to the
letter, "Schools, county have
failed us."
For the past seven years I
have been a part of the teacher
of the year selection committee.
I have had the chance to go
into the classroom and observe.
I see bright students and
amazing teachers providing an
excellent education.
You say, "Dr. Whittaker should
be terminated." At first, I was
going to just ignore your letter
as someone who does not un-
derstand how the school system
works. But then I read that you
are a parent of a child in the
school system and I thought,


why not take this opportunity
to educate you on how the
school system functions?
I know you were trying to
make a point, but then you
tried to make the schools
become a part of county gov-
ernment. They are two different
entities.
The county government has
nothing to do with the School
Board. The School Board has
nothing to do withWinchester
Road.
Why don't you contact me
and we will set up a tour for you
and I to go into a classroom so
you can see for yourself what an
outstanding job our teachers do
for your child and every child
in the school system every day.
At the same time I can give
you a quick course on county
government.

Rest of the
ethics story

Editor:
I asked the Florida Ethics
Commission to investigate
Commissioner Duffy's voting to
give the United Way hundreds
of thousands of taxpayer dollars
while her husband sits on
the United Way's Community
Impact Committee, which
is responsible for "reviewing
applications, evaluating the
programs and making funding
decisions for local nonprofit


agencies that will receive this
taxpayer money from the
United Way."
I felt this gave the appearance
of a conflict of interest at the
least, and could have reward-
ed some of Commissioner
Duffy's supporters. Politicians
have been known to do this.
I just want to know to whom
Commissioner Duffy's husband
decided to give my taxpayer
dollars.
When filing an ethics com-
plaint, I was not able to send
supporting evidence, since you
cannot "attach copies of lengthy
documents (or) video or audio
tapes."
The "Ethics" commission
dismissed my complaint with
this stunning comment: "No
factual investigation preceded
the review, and therefore the
Commission's conclusions
do not reflect on the accu-
racy of the allegations of the
complaint."
The bottom line is taxpayers
don't know if Commissioner
Duffy is guilty or not, since the
Commission on Ethics did not
investigate the matter.
So what is the real purpose
of the Ethics Commission, if
the complainant cannot send
evidence and the Commission
doesn't investigate? Is this
another government agency
giving the appearance of keep-
ing things legal and honest,
when it's a cover for our elected
officials to hide behind?
To add insult to injury,
taxpayers are spending
nearly $3,000 for a lawyer
Commissioner Duffy didn't
need to hire. This commissioner
has $508,000 in declared assets
who stated it was a hardship to
pay for a lawyer and wanted the
taxpayers to foot her bill.
This is a classic example of
why voters across the political
spectrum have come to despise
our public officials and the
newspaperss that protect
them.

Which homes will
insurance impact?

Editor:
As a potential homebuyer in
the Punta Gorda area, I have
been turned off by the dour
warnings on impending new
flood insurance rates for older,
lower homes. There have been
many vague statements to the
effect that it may be cheaper to
build a new home than to ab-
sorb the higher flood insurance
rates that will be imposed on
some homes.
My problem is that no one
seems to be able to provide any
substantive information on the
amount of increase, what age
homes are affected, what areas
are impacted, etc.
I have searched the govern-
ment's website (floodsmart.gov)
and find it to be frustrating and
unfruitful.
Lacking information, I am
reluctant to make an offer for
any home or even a vacant lot.
May I suggest that the Sun
does an investigatory piece
on this subject? Your reporters
seem to have tools, resources
and skills that are not available

On fiscal issues


silence


ne way to think
about the State
of the Union is
to examine the depress-
ing catalog of last year's
unfinished business -
reforming immigration,
repairing crumbling in-
frastructure, expanding
early childhood educa-
tion. This list resembles
a New Year's resolution
dutifully dusted off
every Jan. 1 -Lose
weight! Get organized!
- but never achieved.
Another approach is
to focus on items that
fade or silently disap-
pear from the to-do
list. This enterprise is
even more depressing.
The resolution to shed
pounds bespeaks some
lingering hope and
determination. One un-
derstandable example
is reducing gun vio-
lence, which dwindled
from an impassioned
"this time is different"
peroration to a check-
the-box sentence.
When it comes to the
intertwined issues of
dealing with the debt
and controlling enti-
tlement spending, the
presidential silence was
even more deafening.


There was a glancing
reference to "bringing
down our deficit in a
balanced way." About
controlling Medicare
costs or putting Social
Security on a sustain-
able footing in time
to avert punishing cuts
- nary a whisper.
The contrast with
2013 was striking. Then,
President Obama noted
that "the biggest driver
of our long-term debt is
the rising cost of health
care for an aging popu-
lation" and argued that
"those of us who care
deeply about programs
like Medicare must
embrace the need for
modest reforms oth-
erwise, our retirement
programs will crowd
out the investments we
need for our children,
and jeopardize the
promise of a secure


retirement for future
generations."
That the president
has tired of this issue
is no surprise. It gener-
ates grief from a base
he needs to rev up for
November. Suggesting
even modest reforms,
such as changing the
cost-of-living calcula-
tion for Social Security,
produces a revolt from
the left. Meanwhile,
the president lacks
willing partners among
Republicans, with their
been-there, done-that
attitude toward tax
revenue.
From the presidential
perspective, he's done
his painful share. He
agreed to spending cuts
and secured tax in-
creases that total close
to $4 trillion, assuming
the sequester cuts (or
their equivalent) stick.
Meanwhile, the decline
in the growth of health
care costs is looking
more like significant
trend than accidental
blip.
As administration offi-
cials see it, why expend
presidential rhetoric on
changes that aren't go-
ing to happen, certainly


not in an election year,
when he can spend the
time to push for pro-
grams (infrastructure,
education, immigration
reform) that stand some
chance of passage and
could help produce
the economic growth
essential to paring down
the debt?
The problem with this
argument is that it feeds
into the increasingly
conventional narrative
about the debt and
entitlement reform
- there's no need to
worry, and anyone who
does is a misguided
deficit scold. That's
wrong.
Leave aside the num-
ber games about "defi-
cits cut by more than
half," as the president
back-patted on Tuesday
night. True, and better
than the alternative,
but a misleading and
irrelevant measure.
First, the vaunted
halving stems from
the remarkable (and
justifiable) ramp-up in
deficit spending at the
start of the financial
crisis. The deficit in
2009 was $1.4 trillion
(and 9.8 percent of gross


domestic product). The
comparable 2013 figures
are $680 billion and
4.1 percent, according
to the Committee
for a Responsible
Federal Budget.
Vastly improved, but
higher in percentage
terms than in all but
seven years between
1948 and 2008.
Second, and more
important, is the
stunning rise in the
amount of debt as a
share of the economy.
When George W. Bush
took office, debt stood
at 33 percent of GDP.
Obama inherited a debt
of 43 percent of GDP.
That figure is now about
74 percent, the highest
since 1950. It is project-
ed to drop to 68 percent
by 2018 as additional
spending cuts are
implemented.
But then, according
to the Congressional
Budget Office, the
debt begins to slowly
rise again, driven by
increasing interest costs
and growing spending
for Social Security and
government health care
programs. By 2038,
the CBO projects, debt


would reach 100 per-
cent of GDP, more
than any year except
1945 and 1946.
This is scary, or
should be. The CBO
ticked off the reasons:
Large deficits over the
long term drag down
economic growth,
crowding out invest-
ment and driving up
interest rates. For the
federal budget, higher
interest costs consume
a growing share of
spending, preventing
revenue from being
used in more produc-
tive ways. Sky-high
debt constrains pol-
icymakers' flexibility
to respond to emer-
gencies such as war or
recession. It raises the
risk of a fiscal crisis in
which investors become
unwilling to finance
U.S. borrowing.
Once this president
promised to stop kick-
ing the can down the
road. Now, he acts as if
there is no can.

The Democratic Class of 1974


enry Waxman
and George
Miller are retir-

not running for re-elec-
tion after 40 years as
congressmen from
southern and northern
California.
Also retiring and not
running for re-election

of Montana will resign
if, as expected, he is
confirmed as ambas-
sador to China. Both

were later elected to the

These four are just
about the last members

Aside from these

First, it changed

and continuing to the
present day.
Democrats had
held majorities in the
House for 20 years,
but the liberal major-
ity in the caucus was
often stymied by the
seniority system that
allowed conservative
Southerners to hold key
chairmanships.
Beginning in 1974,
the leadership allowed
the Democratic caucus
to vote up or down


on chairmen against
whom a certain num-
ber of signatures were
gathered.
San Francisco's
Phil Burton, who
had shrewdly backed
many '74ers, gathered
a sufficient number of
signatures for every
chairman. Three were
defeated by the newly
enlarged caucus,
including one, first
elected in 1940, who
addressed the freshmen
as "boys and girls."
Election of commit-
tee chairmen became
routine, and it meant
that anyone seeking a
chair had better have
a voting record in line
with the Democrats'
liberal majority. For
example, Jamie Whitten
of Mississippi, first
elected a month before
Pearl Harbor, shifted
suddenly from Right to
Left.
Republicans did
something similar
when they won their
House majority in 1994.
Their 73 freshmen,
shrewdly backed and
mentored by Newt
Gingrich, supported his


move to have chairmen
chosen by a leadership-
dominated steering
committee.
The result is that the
Democratic Caucus
became solidly liberal,
and the Republican
Conference (the two
parties use different
names) solidly conser-
vative. The polarized
House is in large part
the product of the
Classes of 1974 and
1994.
The change can be
justified on neutral
principles. Committees
more closely resemble
the legislature as a
whole, which makes
legislating more feasi-
ble and party leaders
and members account-
able to the voters.
The downside, in
some critics' view, is
that the election of
chairmen also gave
would-be chairmen
motives to raise money
for other members,
very often from K Street
lobbyists.
Many Class of 1974
members proved to
be productive legis-
lators. Waxman, who


ousted a more senior
chairman of a health
subcommittee in 1978,
sponsored bipartisan
laws on generic drugs
and orphan drugs (for
rare diseases), forced
expansion of Medicaid
in the Reagan years,
shaped the 1990 Clean
Air Act and pushed
Obamacare and cap-
and-trade through the
House in 2009-10.
Miller worked with
John Boehner and
Edward Kennedy on the
Education Act of 2001.
Harkin helped lead
the bipartisan move to
double funding for the
National Institutes of
Health over five years.
Baucus led Senate
Finance Democrats for
13 years.
The Class of 1974
also shifted the House
and the congressional
Democratic Party from
hawkish to dovish.
One of its first acts
in March 1975 was
to block funding for
South Vietnam when
it was under attack by
the North. Saigon fell
in April.
In the 1980s, the


Democratic House kept
pushing back on the
Reagan foreign policy.
In 2002, Nancy Pelosi,
who holds the seat once
held by Phil Burton, led
most House Democrats
to oppose the Iraq war
resolution.
Pelosi says she is
staying on, even as
her ally Waxman and
her consigliere, Miller,
leave the House. The
201-member caucus
she leads has more
black and Hispanic
members and fewer
young doves and
reformers than the
291-member caucus
Waxman and Miller
entered nearly 40 years
ago.
Still, the Class of 1974
has left a mark on
history though not as
much as one Democrat
who narrowly lost a
House race that year, a
28-year-old Arkansan
named Bill Clinton.

PORT CHARLOTTE
- Two were sent to the

man remained behind
bars Monday after an
altercation involving a
large crescent wrench, ac-
cording to the Charlotte

Scott Lloyd Perry, 42,

Patriot Riders holding


poker run for Vietnam Wall


By AL HEMINGWAY
SUN CORRESPONDENT

CHARLOTTE COUNTY
- On Saturday, the
Patriot Riders of
America, a nonprofit
fundraising group
dedicated to assisting
veterans' needs, will
have a poker run to
assist in raising funds to
construct the Vietnam
Wall of Southwest
Florida.
The cost to ride is $10
per person and $5 for
passengers. Registration
for the event will take
place at 9:30 a.m. at
American Legion Post
110 in Port Charlotte
with kickstands up at
11a.m.
There will be three
stops on the run. The
first will be at the Open
Road Grill in Arcadia
where there will be live
music. The bikes will
then proceed to Laishley
Park so everyone can
view the site where The


Wall will be built. Then,
on the last leg of the
ride, the bikes will return
to American Legion Post
110.
An H&R 12-gauge
shotgun and a Benjamin
.22 caliber pellet rifle
equipped with a 3-9x40
scope will be raffled
off, according to Ken
Rouleau, chairman of
the board of directors of
the Patriot Riders.
"It's a top of the line
air rifle and scope," he
said. "We will also have
a Chinese auction and a
50/50 raffle."
Rouleau, who is also
on the finance commit-
tee for The Vietnam Wall
of Southwest Florida
said that there have
been numerous fliers
distributed throughout
Charlotte County to
make residents aware of
the event.
"I will be on the radio
today on Clear Channel
that will hopefully reach
our local stations here


and tape an announce-
ment about donating to
help construct The Wall
in Laishley Park," he
said.
Rouleau said that the
committee is asking
that the community
and the local business
owners donate and
become sponsors of
the memorial that is
"destined to be the fo-
cal center of Southwest
Florida."
"This memorial is
dedicated to the
58,722 Vietnam veterans
who were killed or miss-
ing in action," Rouleau
said. "Our mission is to
build it where survivors,
families, and friends,
can reflect and find
closure for their loss."
To donate, make
checks payable to the
Charlotte Community
Foundation, P.O. Box
512047, Punta Gorda, FL
33951. Put Vietnam Wall
of SWFL in the memo
line.

Frontier fun at the fair


The American Bison is just one of the animals that trainer Sharon Sandlofer features throughout the Great American Frontier
Show at the fairgrounds this week.


Camels were brought in to help build a railroad from Nevada to
California in 1857, according to emcee for the Great American
Frontier Show, Michael Sandlofer.


Connie and Henry Bettich were lucky enough to find a seat in
the shade to stay cool while eating ice cream during the Great
American Frontier Show.


During the Great American Frontier Show, 18-year-old Aurelia
Dolin amazes the crowd while riding her horse, Cash, at the
Charlotte County Fair.

Crews sits on the shoulders of

AI-Qaida splits with branch


Terror network seeks to reassert jihad prominence


By MAAMOUN YOUSSEF
and LEE KEATH
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERS
CAIRO -Al-Qaida's central
leadership broke with one
of its most powerful branch
commanders in an apparent
attempt to stem the deadly
infighting that has erupted
in Syria among the militant


Islamic factions trying to bring
down President Bashar Assad.
More broadly, the announce-
ment Monday appeared to
be a move by al-Qaida leader
Ayman al-Zawahri to reassert
the terror network's promi-
nence in the jihad movement
across the Middle East amid
the mushrooming of extremist
groups during the upheaval of


the past three years.
The dispute is between
al-Qaida's central leadership and
a faction known as the Islamic
State of Iraq and the Levant.
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the
head of al-Qaida's branch
in Iraq, formed the Islamic
State last spring to expand his
operations into neighboring
Syria, defying direct orders


by al-Zawahri not to do so.
Al-Zawahri named a different
group, the Nusra Front, as
al-Qaida's branch in Syria.
Now, the break is likely to
spark a competition for resourc-
es and fighters between the
two sides in what has become
a civil war within a civil war.

Feds seek car-to-car communication


By JOAN LOWY
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
WASHINGTON-Your
car might see a deadly crash
coming even if you don't, the
government says, indicating
it will require automakers
to equip new vehicles with
technology that lets cars warn
each other if they're plunging
toward peril.
The action, still some years
off, has "game-changing


potential" to cut collisions,
deaths and injuries, federal
transportation officials said at
a news conference Monday.
A radio signal would con-
tinually transmit a vehicle's
position, heading, speed and
other information. Cars and
light trucks would receive the
same information back from
other cars, and a vehicle's
computer would alert its driv-
er to an impending collision.
Alerts could be a flashing


message, an audible warning,
or a driver's seat that rumbles.
Some systems might even
automatically brake to avoid
an accident if manufacturers
choose to include that option.
Your car would "see" when
another car or truck equipped
with the same technology
was about to run a red light,
even if that vehicle was
hidden around a corner. Your
car would also know when
a car several vehicles ahead


Funeral and casket outlets

heading to the mall


By JOHN ROGERS
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
LOS ANGELES -We eat there, buy
our clothes there and some people
suspect teenagers may actually live
there. So perhaps it was just a matter
of time until funeral homes began
moving into the local shopping mall.
Over the past two years, Forest
Lawn has been quietly putting mov-
able kiosks in several of the malls that
dot Southern California's suburbs.
The move, by one of the funeral
industry's best known operators, ex-
pands on a marketing innovation that
appears to have begun at the dawn of
the decade when a company called
Til We Meet Again began opening
casket stores around the country.
"We try to reach our audience
where they are at and the mall is
a great way to do that," said Ben
Sussman, spokesman for Forest
Lawn, whose cemeteries count
among their permanent residents
such notables as Walt Disney,
Elizabeth Taylor and Michael Jackson.
'And it's also, perhaps, a way to
reach people who might be a little
leery about coming directly into one
of our parks," Sussman said.

Sugar


tied to


fatal heart woes
By LINDSEY TANNER
AP MEDICAL WRITER
CHICAGO Could too much sugar be
deadly? The biggest study of its kind suggests
the answer is yes, at least when it comes to
fatal heart problems.
It doesn't take all that much extra sugar,
hidden in many processed foods, to substan-
tially raise the risk, the researchers found,
and most Americans eat more than the
safest amount.
Having a cinnamon roll with your morning
coffee, a super-sized sugary soda at lunch
and a scoop of ice cream after dinner would
put you in the highest risk category in the
study. That means your chance of dying
prematurely from heart problems is nearly
three times greater than for people who eat
only foods with little added sugar.
For someone who normally eats 2,000
calories daily, even consuming two 12-ounce
cans of soda substantially increases the risk.
For most American adults, sodas and other
sugary drinks are the main source of added
sugar.
Lead author Quanhe Yang of the U.S.
Centers of Disease Control and Prevention
called the results sobering and said it's
the first nationally representative study to
examine the issue.

Internet firms release data on NSA requests


WASHINGTON (AP) -
Freed by a recent legal
deal with government
lawyers, major technol-
ogy firms released new
data Monday on how
often they are ordered to
turn over customer infor-
mation for secret nation-
al security investigations
- figures that show that
the government collected
data on thousands of
Americans.
The details disclosed
by Google, Microsoft,
Yahoo, Facebook,
LinkedIn and Tumblr
provided expanded
details from 2012 and
2013 showing how often
the government has
sought information on
the firms' customers in
counter-terrorism and
other intelligence-related
probes. The companies
provided limited infor-
mation in the past about
government requests
for data, but a new


agreement reached last
week with the Obama
administration allowed
a broadened, though
still circumscribed, set
of figures to be made
public.
Seeking to reassure
customers and business
partners alarmed by
revelations about the
government's massive
collection of Internet
and computer data, the
firms stressed details
indicating that only
small numbers of their
customers were targeted
by authorities. Still, even
those small numbers
showed that thousands
of Americans were
affected by the govern-
ment requests approved
by judges of the secret
Foreign Intelligence
Surveillance Court.
The data releases
by the five major tech
firms offered a mix of
dispassionate graphics,


reassurances and pro-
tests, seeking to alleviate
customer concerns
about government
spying while pressuring
national security officials
about the companies'
constitutional concerns.
The shifting tone in the
releases showed the
precarious course that
major tech firms have
had to navigate in recent
months, caught between
their public commit-
ments to Internet free-
dom and their enforced
roles as data providers to
U.S. spy agencies.
In a company blog
post, Microsoft General
Counsel Brad Smith
scolded the U.S. and
allied governments
for failing to renounce
the reported mass
interception of Internet
data carried by commu-
nications cables. Top
lawyers and executives
for major tech firms


had previously raised
alarms about media
reports describing that
hacking by U.S. and UK
spy agencies and cited
them during conversa-
tions with U.S. officials
during President Barack
Obama's internal review
of planned changes to
the government's spying
operations.
"Despite the presi-
dent's reform efforts and
our ability to publish
more information, there
has not yet been any
public commitment
by either the U.S. or
other governments to
renounce the attempted
hacking of Internet
companies," Smith
said in a Microsoft blog
release. Smith added
that Microsoft planned
to press the govern-
ment "for more on this
point, in collaboration
with others across our
industry."


Christie cooperating with subpoena


TRENTON, N.J. (AP)
- Gov. Chris Christie
on Monday said that his
office is cooperating with
a subpoena from federal
authorities investigating
whether any laws were
broken when lanes near
a New Jersey bridge were
apparently closed for
political retribution.
The Republican
governor also said in a
radio interview as he
took questions for the
first time in more than
three weeks that he may
have heard about the
traffic tie-ups in Fort Lee
when they were going on


last September, but that
it didn't register with him
as a major issue if he did.
He said that a news re-
port several days after the
lanes were reopened got
his attention and that he
asked staffers to look into
it. The report indicated
that the head of the Port
Authority of New York
and New Jersey did not
authorize the closings.
"Nobody has said I
knew about this before
it happened, and I think
that's the most important
question," Christie said
in the appearance on his
'Ask the Governor" radio


show on Townsquare
Media Monday night.
It was the first time
Christie took questions
since a nearly two-hour
news conference Jan. 9,
the day after emails were
made public showing
that at least one of his
top aides had a role
in a traffic-blocking
scheme near the George
Washington Bridge. Since
then, he has made public
appearances but not
opened himself to ques-
tions, except to school-
children in Camden.
Meanwhile Monday,
Christie's campaign


sought to exceed New
Jersey's election spend-
ing cap to pay for lawyers
dealing with subpoenas
stemming from a politi-
cal payback scandal.
A special legislative
investigative committee
said Monday it had be-
gun receiving documents
it requested in response
to 20 subpoenas it issued
last month. It's trying
to unravel how high
up Christie's chain of
command a lane closing
order went in September
and whether the opera-
tion was meant to punish
a Democratic adversary.


Former 2nd lady Joan Mondale dies at age 83


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP)
-Joan Mondale, who
burnished a reputation as
"Joan of Art" for her pas-
sionate advocacy for the
arts while her husband
was vice president and
a U.S. ambassador, died
Monday. She was 83.
Walter Mondale, sons
Ted and William and
other family members
were by her side when she
died, the family said in
a statement released by


their church. The family
had announced Sunday
that she had gone into
hospice care, but declined
to discuss her illness.
"Joan was greatly loved
by many. We will miss her
dearly," the former vice
president said in a written
statement.
An arts lover and an
avid potter, Joan Mondale
was given a grand
platform to promote the
arts when Walter, then a


Democratic senator, was
elected Jimmy Carter's
vice president in 1976.
Carter named her
honorary chairwoman of
the Federal Council on
the Arts and Humanities,
and in that role she
frequently traveled to
museums, theaters and
artist studios on the
administration's behalf.
She lobbied Congress and
states to boost public arts
programs and funding.


She also showcased the
work of prominent artists
in the vice presidential
residence, including pho-
tographer Ansel Adams,
sculptor David Smith and
painter Georgia O'Keeffe.
As Carter's No. 2, Walter
Mondale was seen as
a trusted adviser and
credited with making
the office of the vice
president more relevant.
It was natural that his wife
would do the same for her
role. Vice presidential
aide Al Eisele once
said of his boss: "It was
important to him that
Joan not just be the vice
president's wife, but his
partner."

Official: Heroin in Police: Michigan
packets in Hoffman's escaped prisoner
apartment captured


NEWYORK (AP)- A
law enforcement official
says tests have confirmed
there was heroin in at
least some of the dozens
of plastic packets in a
New York City apartment
where Philip Seymour
Hoffman was found dead.
Officials are working to
determine whether the
drug was mixed or tainted
with anything else.
An autopsy was being
conducted Monday.
Police have been inves-
tigating Hoffman's death
as an apparent overdose.
Law enforcement officials
said he was found with a
needle in his arm.
Two officials said
Monday that at least four
dozen small packets were
found in the apartment.
The officials said some
packages were stamped
with the ace of hearts,
others with the ace of
spades.

Wet, heavy snow
falls on East,

PHILADELPHIA (AP)-
A winter storm dumped
several inches of wet,
heavy snow on parts of the
eastern United States on
Monday, snarling air and
road travel for commuters
and Super Bowl fans,
cuttffing power, and closing
schools and government
offices.
Fat flakes began falling
during the morning com-
mute Monday and contin-
ued falling throughout the
afternoon in Philadelphia,
creating slushy side-
walks and streets. The
Philadelphia and New York
areas were expecting about
8 inches, erasing all mem-
ory of Sunday's weather in
the '50s.
In New Jersey, Gov. Chris
Christie declared a state
of emergency with travel
conditions hazardous.
Nonessential government
employees were dismissed
early. Government offices,
courts and schools closed
in parts of Connecticut,
Delaware, Maryland, New
Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania
and WestVirginia; scattered
power outages were report-
ed throughout the region.
By mid-afternoon, the
flight-tracking website
FlightAware reported more
than 3,000 delayed flights
and 1,700 canceled flights
nationwide in cities includ-
ing Philadelphia, Newark,

IONIA, Mich. (AP) -A
convicted killer who peeled
a hole in two fences with
his hands to escape from
a Michigan prison before
abducting a woman and
fleeing to Indiana was
captured Monday evening,
authorities said.
Officials were stunned by
the brazen escape Sunday
night of Michael David
Elliot, who had a record of
good behavior during his
20 years in custody. He wore
a white civilian kitchen uni-
form to evade security and
blend in with snow at the
lonia Correctional Facility
in western Michigan,
prisons spokesman Russ
Marlan said.
Indiana State Police Sgt.
Ron Galaviz said Elliot was
in LaPorte County, Ind.
when a sheriff's deputy
investigating a vehicle
theft tried to make a traffic
stop. The suspect ran, but
authorities were able to
capture him.
Fences at the lonia prison
were equipped with motion
sensors to alert guards. The
fences also carry electric
current to shock anyone
that touches them.
"It appears that did not
happen.... He was not
zapped with electricity, and
he was not picked up by the
motion sensors," Marian
said.

Obama seeks to
hold Dems together
in election year
WASHINGTON (AP) -
Seeking to preserve party
unity in an election year,
President Barack Obama is
trying to tamp down inter-
nal Democratic divisions on
issues like trade and energy,
even as friendly lawmakers
show little restraint in
publicly breaking with the
White House.
Obama met Monday
with Senate Majority Leader
Harry Reid, who has sharply
opposed the president's
proposal for letting
Congress vote quickly to
approve international
trade pacts. The president
will also meet with House
Democrats on Tuesday
and Senate Democrats on
Wednesday, when he's likely
to face more pushback on
the Keystone XL pipeline
and health care.
White House officials
have tried to dismiss
the intraparty divisions,
saying they're aware of the
election-year pressures
driving some Democrats
to oppose Obama on
high-profile issues.

Report: US troop
morale higher in
Afghanistan
WASHINGTON (AP) -
U.S. soldiers had higher
morale and suffered fewer
mental health problems in
Afghanistan last year as they
handed off more duties to
Afghans and saw less com-
bat themselves, according
to a report released Monday.
The Army report was
drawn from a battlefield
survey and interviews in
June and July. It was the
ninth time since the prac-
tice started in 2003 in Iraq
that the service had sent
a team of mental health
experts to the field of war
to measure soldier mental
health and assess available
care.
The report says rates of
soldiers with depression,
anxiety and acute stress-
as well as tendencies toward
suicide- were lower than
in the most recent previous
surveys.

TALLAHASSSEE (AP)
- Carlos Lopez-Cantera
was sworn in Monday as
Florida's next lieutenant
governor during a small,
private ceremony held in
the governor's office.
Lopez-Cantera be-
comes the first Hispanic
and Cuban-American in
Florida history to hold the
position. He will appear
on the ballot with Gov.
Rick Scott when Scott
runs for re-election this

While the job of lieu-

Ga. asks Supreme
Court to reject
Fla. water suit
SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP)
- Attorneys for the
state of Georgia have
asked the U.S. Supreme
Court to stay out of the
latest legal battle in its
24-year fight over water
rights with neighboring
Florida.
Georgia filed its
response last week
to Florida's request
for the high court to
intervene in deciding
how they share water
that flows across the
state line where the
Chattahoochee and Flint
rivers merge to form
the Apalachicola River.
Florida officials said in
an October complaint
their state needs imme-
diate relief as growing
water consumption by
metro Atlanta threatens
Florida's oyster fishery.
"Florida has brought
its case against the wrong
party, in the wrong court,
and at the wrong time,"
the Georgia lawyers wrote
in their legal response.
The river system at
the heart of the dispute
serves Georgia, Florida
and Alabama. The three
states have been em-
broiled in legal battles
since 1990 over how to
share the water supply.
The 1lth U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals in 2011
ordered the Army Corps
of Engineers, which uses
dams to control flows in
the river system, to work
on a new water allocation
plan for the region.

Woman, 81, jailed,

feeding bears
SEBRING (AP) -An
81-year-old Sebring
woman has been arrested
after authorities say she
continued to feed wildlife
in violation of a probation
order, then fought with
a state agent and deputy
sheriff as they took her
into custody.
The News Sun reports
that Mary H. Musselman
was arrested Wednesday
after the agent found
trays with bird seed and
corn in Musselman's yard.
Musselman was put on
probation two weeks ago
after being charged with
two counts of feeding
black bears. A Highlands
County judge had ordered


her not to put out any
food to feed bears or
other wildlife for a year.
In November of last
year, FWC officials
reported they euthanized
a bear after it was fed by
Musselman.


Jury to be

JACKSONVILLE (AP)-
Journalists are objecting
to an order requiring
reporters to be out of
the courtroom during
jury selection in the trial
of a software developer
charged with fatally
shooting a 17-year-old
teen that authorities say
happened after an argu-
ment over loud music.
An attorney for The

Monday told the judge
presiding over the case
that reporters must be
allowed in the courtroom
during selection.
Under the current plan,
reporters can listen to
an audio feed in another

it's an effort to protect
potential jurors' identities.
The judge on Monday

Abandoned infant
doing well in
DCF custody
DEBARY(AP)- Ababy
girl left at a central Florida
fire station is doing well in
state custody.
The Daytona Beach
News-Journal reported the
6-week-old girl is in good
health after an ordeal
that began Dec. 16. She
was supposed to be left
at a DeBary Fire station
because her mother didn't
want her. Instead, she was
rescued by newspaper
carrier Anthony Ackeridge.
The story began in the
early morning hours when
53-year-old man flagged
down the newspaper
carrier, saying he'd found
a newborn baby outside
a convenience store. The
man had wrapped the
child in his shirt. The
carrier called 911 and a
Volusia County Sheriff's
deputy arrived.
The man who'd "found"
the baby was questioned
and his story quickly
unraveled. Deputies
learned he was dating
the baby's mother, but
was not the child's father.
He told deputies that the
girl's mother didn't want
her and had asked him to
leave her at a fire station,
as allowed under Florida's
Safe Haven law.

Justice Alito:
Court can't worry
about popularity
WEST PALM BEACH
(AP) -The U.S. Supreme
Court should never
concern itself with pop-
ularity and must remain
above the fray when there
is strong public reaction to
its rulings, Justice Samuel
Alito said Monday in a
luncheon speech.
"It's fine if we are not all
that popular," Alito told
an audience of more than
1,100 lawyers and business
people. "There is a reason
why the Constitution gives
federal judges life tenure.
We are supposed to do
our jobs without worrying
whether our decisions are
pleasing to anybody."
Alito spoke to a joint
meeting of the Forum Club
of the Palm Beaches and
the Palm Beach County
Bar Association, drawing
the largest audience ever
for such an event, orga-
nizers said. His staff did
not permit the speech to
be videotaped or audio
recorded, and Alito noted


that the justices remain
somewhat behind the
times in terms of using
such common technol-
ogies as email. The court
also does not permit oral
arguments to be televised,
although some are re-
leased later on audiotape.


Lab worker investigated over missing drugs


PENSACOLA (AP) -A
Florida crime lab em-
ployee resigned Monday
during an investigation
into missing drug evi-
dence that authorities
say could compromise
hundreds of cases.
Department officials did
not identify the employee.
When The Associated
Press asked for the sus-
pect's resignation letter,
they released a copy of a
letter from an employee
named Joseph Graves.
No one responded
to a message left at a
telephone number listed
for that name, and no one
answered a knock on the
door of a house located
at an address registered
to that name. The State
Attorney's Office identi-
fied his lawyer as Michael


Griffith, who declined to
comment when contacted
by telephone.
The chemist under
investigation is sus-
pected of substituting
non-prescription drugs
for prescription painkill-
ers, Florida Department
of Law Enforcement
Commissioner Gerald
Bailey said over the
weekend.
The agency is now
reviewing 2,600 cases
the suspected employee
handled involving 80 law
enforcement agencies
in 35 counties, said Bill
Eddins, state attorney for
the district that includes
Pensacola. The employee
has not been formally
charged but probably will
be later this week, Eddins
said.


"We will be conducting
a thorough investigation
to see if each and every
case was handled proper-
ly," he said.
Authorities say it is
unclear whether the

TALLAHASSEE (AP)-
Democrat Charlie Crist's
released aWeb ad Monday
that says it's ridiculous
to blame him in his time
as governor for Florida's
economic downturn and
that instead the recession
was caused by "guys like
Rick Scott."
The ad is in response to a
Republican Party of Florida
Web ad released last week
that blames Crist for high
unemployment rates, a big
drop in property values,
Florida leading the country
in home foreclosures
and more. Crist, then a
Republican, served as


governor from 2007 to
2011, when the state's
economy took a tumble.
During the 30-second
ad, Crist looks at the
camera and says, "Rick
Scott is blaming me for
the financial crisis? That's
ridiculous. Here's the
truth. The recession wasn't
caused by me, or by you.
You know who caused it?
GreedyWall Street bankers
and corporate takeover
artists. In other words, guys
like Rick Scott."
Just as Crist can't be
blamed for Florida's bad
economy during an inter-
national financial crisis, it's


also not fair to blame Scott
for the same recession.
Scott partially built his
wealth through corporate
mergers and acquisitions.
He was also the CEO
of the Columbia/HCA
hospital chain. Crist makes
an indirect reference to
Columbia/HCA paying a
$1.7 billion settlement for
Medicaid fraud.
"His company com-
mitted outright fraud.
So when you see his ads,
remember it was guys like
Rick Scott that crashed
our economy," said Crist,
who left the Republican
Party in 2010, registered as


a Democrat in December
2012 and announced he
would seek his old job
with his new party last
November.
Scott's campaign said
the ad shows Crist is
incompetent.
"He continues to take
no responsibility for the
economic disaster that
occurred under his watch,
and pretends that as
governor he was helpless
to fix the situation. Things
got so bad he ended up
running away but now he
wants his job back," said
Scott campaign spokes-
man Matt Moon.

5 things to know about the massive farm bill


WASHINGTON (AP)
- Cuts to food stamps,
continued subsidies to
farmers and victories for
animal rights advocates.
The massive, five-year
farm bill heading toward
final passage this week
has broad implications
for just about every
American, from the foods
we eat to what we pay for
them.
Support for farmers
through the subsidies
included in the legisla-
tion helps determine the
price of food and what
is available. And money
for food stamps helps
the neediest Americans
who might otherwise go
hungry.
The House already has
passed the bipartisan
measure and the Senate
was scheduled to pass
the bill Tuesday after
the chamber voted to
move forward on the


legislation Monday
evening.
Five things you should
know about the farm bill:

Where the
money goes
Most of the bill's
almost $100 billion-
a-year price tag goes
to the nation's food
stamp program, now
known as SNAP or the
Supplemental Nutrition
Assistance Program. One
in seven Americans, or
about 47 million peo-
ple, participates in the
program. The legislation
cuts food stamps by
about $800 million, or
1 percent, by cracking
down on states that seek
to boost individual food
stamp benefits by giving
people small amounts of
federal heating assis-
tance that they don't
need.


GOP pushing for


preschool funding


JEFFERSON CITY Mo.
(AP) Republican gover-
nors and lawmakers who
now control a majority of
state capitols have been
pushing aggressively to
cut spending and shrink

glaring exception.
Many are pumping new
money into preschool
programs at a rate equal-
ing or even exceeding the
Democratic-dominated
capitols stereotypically
cast as big spenders.
The push reflects a con-
clusion among conserva-
tives that one part of the

Subsidies
maintained
Farmers will continue
to receive generous fed-
eral subsidies that help
them stay in business in
an unpredictable envi-
ronment, but through
revamped programs. The
bill eliminates a fixed
$4.5 billion-a-year subsi-
dy called direct payments,
which are paid to farmers
whether they farm or
not. New subsidies would
require farmers to incur
losses before they could
collect from the federal
government. The bill
would also overhaul dairy
and cotton subsidies
and transition them into
similar insurance-style
programs. Most farmers
would pick between a
program that would pay
out when revenue dips
or another that pays out
when prices drop.

Crackdown on

The Agriculture

bill would also prohibit

Romance sizzles

Stocks extend slide


(AP) For investors,
February is starting out
just as rough as January.
U.S. stocks tumbled
on Monday, pushing the
Dow Jones industrial
average down more
than 320 points after
reports of sluggish U.S.
growth added to investor
worries about the global
economy. The slump
follows the Dow's worst
January performance
since 2009.
The market stumbled
from the get-go, with
U.S. markets opening
lower after declines in
European and Japanese
indexes. Then it quickly
turned into a slide as a
spate of discouraging


economic data on
everything from manu-
facturing to auto sales to
construction spending
poured in.
By late afternoon,
the sell-off accelerated
further, bringing the
Dow down more than
7 percent for the year.
The S&P 500 index was
down more than 5 per-
cent on the year.
Some stock watch-
ers took the market's
decline in stride. They
considered it a necessary
recalibration following
the market's record highs
at the end of last year.
"It's a bit painful for
investors to see the
equities markets drop


as they have, but this is
healthy for this market,"
said Chris Gaffney, a
senior market strategist
at EverBank. "We've been
almost 2 12 years without
a 10 percent correction.
So we're still in that
healthy correction, if you
will."
All told, the Dow
tumbled 326.05 points,
or 2.1 percent, to
15,372.80. It fell as much
as 342 points earlier
in the afternoon. The
Standard & Poor's 500 in-
dex lost 40.70 points, or
2.3 percent, to 1,741.89.
The Nasdaq composite
dropped 106.92 points,
or 2.6 percent, to
3,996.96.


Yellen sworn in as Fed chair

- Janet Yellen officially
took over the leadership
of the Federal Reserve

down last week after

Bernanke spent the rest
of his tenure launching
and managing an array
of programs that are
widely credited with
helping restore lending
and strengthen the
financial system and
economy after the Great
Recession.
Yellen, 67, who served
as vice chair under


Bernanke, is taking
over just as the Fed has
begun its first modest
moves to scale back
its enormous support
for the economy. At a
meeting last week, the
last under Bernanke's

approved a second

in its monthly bond
purchases to $65 billion.


High-yield short-term bonds


ear Mr. Berko: I
have $130,000 sit-
ting in my money
market account earning
less than 0.25 percent.
My broker has recom-
mended that I put some
of this money in Puerto
Rican tax-free bonds that
yield more than 10 per-
cent, as well as taxable
bonds from several South
American countries and
from various other foreign
countries with even higher
yields. I can afford a mod-
erate amount of risk, but
I'd appreciate your looking
over the enclosed list
and helping me pick out
some issues you think are
the safest in the bunch.
And if you have any other
suggestions on how to
get better than 10 percent
safely, I'd appreciate your
recommendations, too.-
RP, Rochester, Minn.
Dear RP: Are you
that desperate? I don't
speak Balochistanian,
Venezuelan, Swahili,
Sinaloan, Kashmiri,
Elbonian or Kosovan. And
though those governments'
officials will be enriching
themselves at the public
trough for decades to
come, I doubt their bonds
will survive that long.
The Venezuelan bonds,
maturing in 2033 and
yielding 29 percent, should
make a few more interest
payments before they
default. Then I'm certain
as rain that in the follow-
ing few years, American
bondholders (including
major U.S. banks and large
mutual funds) will demand
the U.S. government
confiscate Venezuelan
assets to reimburse
them for their inevitable
investment losses. The
only names on that list
with better than a 50/50
chance of survival are the
Puerto Rican municipals.
There are two reasons: an
enormous U.S. business
presence in Puerto Rico


and the Obama adminis-
tration's belief that Puerto
Rico is a strong candidate
for statehood. Though I
don't object to a specula-
tive $10,000 investment in
this Puerto Rican junque,
I suggest you purchase it
through one of the large
discount brokerages or
a firm that trades on the
New York Stock Exchange.
This outfit you're working
with is a schlock house
with bond markups that
are big enough to choke a
python. Meanwhile, bum
that list.
To improve the surviv-
ability of your speculative
bond portfolio, I suggest
that you invest only in
maturity bonds that will
come due in less than
four years.
Keeping short maturity
dates is how many high-
yield junk bond mutual
funds have been able to
post double-digit returns
in the past couple of
years. The following list of
short-maturity issues will
give you an idea of what
to look for:
Dendreon 2.875 per-
cent (not rated) bonds,
maturing in January 2016,
trade at $660 per $1,000,
with a 25 percent yield
to maturity. Dendreon
(DNDN-$2.99) is a $300
million-revenue biotech
company with no earnings,
a negative book value and
a negative cash flow. It has
been public since 1992.
J.C. Penney 6.75 per-
cent bonds, maturing in
October 2015 and rated
CCC-, trade at $910 per


$1,000 face value and
have a 12 percent yield to
maturity. J.C. Penney (JCP-
$8.80), a $12 billion-reve-
nue retailer, has an $8.70
book value and a negative
cash flow, and it may not
be profitable for a while.
Harrah's 10.75 percent
bonds, maturing in
February 2016 and rated
CCC-, trade at $810 per
$1,000 face value and
have a yield to maturity of
22.04 percent. Harrah's, a
privately held company,
has well-known money-
losing casinos in Las Vegas
and Atlantic City.
Global Geophysical
Services (GGS-$1.61) is
an unprofitable $300
million-revenue provider
of seismic solutions to the
oil and gas industry. The
10.5 percent bonds, rated
B-, mature in May 2017,
trade at $781 per $1,000
face and have a 20.02 per-
cent yield to maturity. GGS
has a $1.62 book value and
a $78 million cash flow.
Toys R Us is a privately
held, barely profitable
retailer. Its 10.375 percent
bonds, maturing in August
2017, trade at $819 per
$1,000 face value. They
are rated CCC and yield
16.2 percent to maturity.
All those bonds have an
infinitely better chance
of survival than those
long-maturity foreign issues.
They are just a few names
of the many publicly traded
short-term junk bonds. If
your broker doesn't have
a ready list, he can locate
hundreds of issues by
perusing the portfolios of
the many junk bond funds
that own those and similar
issues. If he doesn't have
the wherewithal to do that,
his fim's bond department
probably has a ready list of
high-yield short-term bonds
from which he should
be able to give you some
recommendations.

Student kills teacher,


policeman in Moscow school


MOSCOW (AP)- A
10Oth-grade student with
two rifles burst into
his Moscow school on
Monday, killing his geogra-
phy teacher and a police-
man in front of about 20
students, investigators said.
His father played a key role
in freeing those students
before police stormed the
classroom and took his son
into custody, the city police
chief said.
The student gunman
also seriously wounded
a second police officer


who had responded to an
alarm from the school,
investigators said.
None of the approxi-
mately 400 children in
School No. 263 at the time
were hurt, said Karina
Sabitova, a police spokes-
woman. But students
were so fearful that some
ran from the building
with their teachers with-
out stopping to put on
coats in below-freezing
temperatures. The school
in northeast Moscow is
for children in grades one


through 11.
Such shootings in
Russian schools are
extremely rare. Any attack
on a school, however,
unavoidably brings back
memories of the Beslan
school siege in 2004,
when Islamic militants
from Russia's North
Caucasus took about
1,000 people hostage,
most of them children.
More than 300 hostages
were killed when Russian
security forces stormed
that school.


I WORLD NEWS BRIEFS

Syrian airstrikes Protesters vow to South Africa:
kill at least 18 annul Thai vote, Mandela's will
in Aleppo step up rallies worth $4.1 million


BEIRUT (AP) -The
Syrian government extend-
ed its intense aerial cam-
paign against rebel-held
areas of the northern city
of Aleppo on Monday,
conducting a series of
airstrikes that killed at least
18 people, including five
children, activists said.
President Bashar Assad's
air force has pounded
opposition areas of
the divided city since
mid-December, reducing
apartment blocks to rubble
and overwhelming already
strapped hospitals and
medical clinics with the
wounded. On Sunday,
government aircraft also
targeted areas of east
Aleppo under rebel control,
killing nearly 40 people.
Monday's air raids hit the
districts of Hanano, Qadi
Askar and Mouwasalat,
the Britain-based Syrian
Observatory for Human
Rights said. The group said
helicopters dropped crude
bombs barrels packed
with explosives, fuel and
scraps of metal on the
neighborhoods, causing
immense damage.


BANGKOK (AP) -Anti-
government protesters in
Thailand vowed Monday
to stage larger rallies in
central Bangkok and push
ahead with efforts to nulli-
fy an election they disrupt-
ed, preventing millions of
people from voting.
Despite fears of vio-
lence, voting proceeded
peacefully in 90 percent
of polling stations Sunday.
The protesters forced
polling booths to close in
Bangkok and southern
Thailand, leaving some
legislative seats unfilled.
As a result, a series of spe-
cial elections are required
to complete the balloting,
extending the country's
political paralysis for
months.
Election results will not
be announced until all
areas have successfully
voted.
After sabotaging the
election process, the pro-
testers and their allies said
they will go to court to try
to get the polls nullified on
several grounds, including
that they were not com-
pleted in one day.


JOHANNESBURG
(AP) Nelson Mandela's
estate, worth roughly
$4.1 million, will be
shared among his family,
members of his staff,
schools that he attended
and the African National
Congress, the movement
that fought white rule and
now governs South Africa,
the will's executors said
Monday.
Mandela's third wife,
Graca Machel, is the main
beneficiary of the will
because their marriage
was "in community of
property" and she there-
fore has the right to half
his estate, as long as she
claims it within 90 days,
said executor Dikgang
Moseneke, who is also
deputy chief justice of
the Constitutional Court.
Graca Machel's first hus-
band, President Samora
Machel of Mozambique,
died in a plane crash in
1986.
Mandela's ex-wife,
Winnie Madikizela-
Mandela, was not men-
tioned in the will. The
couple divorced in 1996.

Coach doesn't think Lemon Bay needs
special effects to win district title


By ROB SHORE
SPORTS WRITER
Sean Huber has guaranteed
his Lemon Bay High School
boys basketball team will win
the District 5A- 11 tournament
this week sort of.
In a spot for the school's
television production pro-
gram, the Manta Rays' coach
stood at midcourt and said if
he sank a shot back over his
head, Lemon Bay would win
the district title.
Swish.
"It's a trick shot I do it
all the time," Huber said.


"Everybody says it's CGI (spe-
cial effects), but it's not CGI. If
it's good luck, I'll take it."
It isn't special effects, but
the Mantas are in great shape
to advance to the regional
playoffs out of their district
tournament, needing only a
win at home against DeSoto
County tonight to reach their
championship game.
That's also the case for every
team in the area one win
and you go on. And every
team except DeSoto County
gets that game at home. For
Lemon Bay, whose nearest
district opponent in DeSoto


County is one hour away
(according to Google Maps),
that's a huge edge.
"One of our goals was to get
a home game (in the district
tournament)," Huber said. "If
it was an away game, it would
have been hours away. On
a weekday, with one day of
preparation, it's easier to play
at home. The home crowd
can be a determining factor -
they were a big reason got the
win against DeSoto County
the first time. They were really
loud and the players fed off
the crowd and played pretty
well."
Lemon Bay is coming into
the contest after a 68-63 home

Rotation takes a hit


Hellickson undergoes elbow
surgery, is out until May


ByMARCTOPKIN
TAMPA BAY TIMES
ST. PETERSBURG-
Tampa Bay right-hander
Jeremy Hellickson had
arthroscopic surgery on
his right elbow last week
and is expected to be out
until mid- to late-May,
the Times has learned.
Hellickson, who
last month settled his
arbitration case for
$3.65-million, had loose
bodies removed from his
elbow by Dr. Koco Eaton
in what is considered a
minor procedure and is
likely to miss the first 6-8
weeks of the season.
Hellickson, 26, had the
surgery on Wednesday
and will return to Florida
and report to spring
training next week as
scheduled.
Hellickson said he felt
only occasional slight
discomfort when he
started throwing in his
native Iowa in December,
but it grew worse to the
point where he couldn't
straighten his arm and
felt it was locked up


during a bullpen session
on Jan. 19.
"Everything was going
good," Hellickson said
Monday. "I think right
at the beginning of my
throwing program I felt
just a little discomfort,
but nothing too bad, so
I just kept throwing. It'd
feel good for a week and
then it would go back to
feeling irritated and not
comfortable
"Then I just kind of
wanted to wait until I
got on the mound to see
how it felt. I threw my
first bullpen and it felt
good, then I got on the
mound three days later
and I couldn't even really
straighten out my arm,
it was kind of locked
up. I threw about 10-15
pitches that bullpen, and
came away with, it just
didn't feel good at all, not
comfortable."
The Rays had him
come to St. Petersburg,
and Eaton did the
surgery last week.

Success

By ROB MAADDI
ASSOCIATED PRESS
PHILADELPHIA
Ready, set, bid.
Now that the first New
York/New Jersey Super
Bowl was a smashing suc-
cess for everyone except
the Denver Broncos and
their fans, NFL owners in
other cold-weather cities
are sure to be lining up to
try to bring the Big Game
to their stadiums.
Philadelphia,
Washington, Chicago,
New England and Denver
are among the places
that can make a case to
host it. The next three
Super Bowls are set for
Glendale, Ariz. (2015),
Santa Clara, Calif. (2016),
and Houston (2017), and
the 2018 field has been
narrowed to a domed
home in Indianapolis,
Minneapolis or New
Orleans.
So, the next chance for
an outdoor Super Bowl
in a cold climate is 2019.
Then again, it doesn't
necessarily mean it will
be cold. It was, after all,
49 degrees in northern
New Jersey when the
Super Bowl kicked off
Sunday night.
Meanwhile, the tem-
perature reached 54
degrees in Philadelphia
on Super Sunday, 62 in
Landover, Md., and 51 in
Foxborough, Mass.
"Philly would be a great
place to host it. It has
everything," Eagles owner
Jeffrey Lurie said last
week. "All the infrastruc-
ture, fourth largest city in
the country, state of the
art stadium and great fan
base."

Gymnastics team lands 2nd in meet


By BARBARA BOXLEITNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Universal
Gymnastics Academy's
boys team nearly turned
in a championship
performance Friday.
The boys finished
second in the Dolphin
Gymnastics Classic in
Kissimmee, missing first
by 0.4 points.
"They're working really
hard," second-year coach
Dave DiNucci said of
the Port Charlotte team.
"I'm very proud of them.
It was a lot of discipline
and hard work to achieve
those scores.
"The week prior to,


we did not have a good
meet," he said. "They
weren't focused. We only
had very limited prac-
tice time (Monday and
Thursday) to get ready for
the Dolphin Classic. They
were focused, and they
stepped up."
Sixty-seven boys at level
4 competed in eight age
divisions Friday.
Fourth-grader Jack
Conte, who was first
all-around in the 9-10 A
category, was sixth over-
all, according to DiNucci.
Conte had a personal
best score of 61.70 and
placed first in the pom-
mel horse, vault, parallel
bars and high bars.


Chris Conte, Jack's
father, said experience
is helping his 9-year-old
polish his routines. The
youngster knows he has
to be cleaner with his
moves to avoid deduc-
tions and knows about
moves that earn bonus
points. For example,
doing a plank the
horizontal hold on the
rings earns bonus points.
"(Before) he was going
through it and not under-
standing how he won,"
Chris Conte said.
Tony Baez was sixth
all-around in the 9-10 A
division, beating his score
at the previous meet by
nearly three points. He


won the floor exercise.
AJ Donza and Luc
Buettner placed second
and third all-around,
respectively, in the age
7-8 D division.
Buettner was first in the
vault.
"Luc is a sleeper,"
DiNucci said. "I'm
hoping to awaken that
giant within him. Once
that happens, we'll see.
He's one of our cleanest
technical kids."
Dennis Moledetsky and
Jackson Council were fifth
and sixth all-around, re-
spectively, in the age 9-10
B group. Moledetsky's
57.70 all-around score
was a personal best.

MIAMI LeBron
James came within two
rebounds of his first
triple-double this season,
and the Miami Heat won
for the fifth time in six
games Monday by beat-
ing the Detroit Pistons
102-96.
James had 24 points
and 11 assists, Dwyane
Wade scored 30 points
and Chris Bosh added 17.
Wade had one of his
best performances in an
injury-hampered season,
shooting 13 for 19 and
adding 10 rebounds and
five assists in 37 minutes.
His point total was his
highest since Dec. 18.
James was blanked
in the rebound depart-
ment down the stretch.
When Wade snatched a
rebound away from him
with 4 minutes left, a
grinning James chided
him as they ran up court.
Wade waved his arms in
sheepish apology.
Teammate Ray Allen
outfought James for a
rebound a minute later,
which left James mutter-
ing to the Heat bench.
James also tweaked his
left shoulder and right
hand, and was called for
committing a foul with
his face when he became
entangled with Greg
Monroe.
Allen's buzzer-beating
3-pointer put the Heat
up 84-80 after three

26 points and seven as-
sists for the Pistons, who
trailed almost the entire
game and took it badly.
They were called for four
technical fouls.
Monroe had 17 points
and 11 rebounds. Detroit
lost despite forcing 20
turnovers and holding


an edge of 51-44 in
rebounds.
The Heat, who began
the week three games be-
hind Eastern Conference
leader Indiana, started
strong and scored 13
points before they
missed a shot.
From 41-all, James
and Wade teamed up for
back-to-back fast-break
baskets. The second
came when Wade fed
Mario Chalmers, whose
alley-oop over the hoop
perfectly led an airborne
James for a one-handed
throw-down dunk.
Will Bynunm's four-
point play put the
Pistons up 48-47, but
that was their last lead.
Miami went on a 14-2


run near the end of the
half and led 63-57 at
halftime.

The rich are about to get richer


Leading into signing day, SEC
reigns supreme in recruiting


By JOHN ZENOR
ASSOCIATED PRESS
MONTGOMERY,
Ala. The Southeastern
Conference is still
reigning supreme on the
recruiting trail.
Florida State ended the
league's seven-year stran-
glehold on the national
title, but Alabama, Texas
A&M, LSU & Co. have
been racking up wins in
the living rooms of top
prospects from across the
country.
The Crimson Tide is
poised to bring in another
top-rated recruiting class
on Wednesday's national
signing day. Six SEC

said.
Hellickson said he
didn't think the elbow
condition was an issue in
his disappointing 2013,
when he went 12-10 with
a 5.17 ERA. He said he
felt only what he consid-
ered "normal wear and
tear, normal tightness"
then, and that it felt
similar when he started
throwing in December.
"The irritation that
I felt on that second
bullpen wasn't anything
compared to what I felt
last year it was far worse
than anything I felt last
year," he said.
Hellickson said the
injury is even more frus-
trating because of how
driven he was to make up
for last season.
"I was absolutely look-
ing forward to getting
back out there this year,"
he said. "I guess a lot of

"It's kind of a rich get

JC Shurburtt, national

Based on the rankings,
the SEC is cleaning up.
ESPN.com has four SEC
classes ranked in the top

Texas A&M, No. 4 LSU
and No. 5 Tennessee.

year so I was motivated
to get back out there and
do what I know I can do.
So it definitely sucks. It's
frustrating to have to go
through this and miss
hopefully just a month,
month and a half."
Hellickson, who has
had no previous sur-
geries, said he was told
the rehab process can
take 6-10 weeks, so he is
hoping to be on the short
end of that and then start
working his way back
into game form to return
to the rotation. "The
beginning of May is what
I'm shooting for," he said.
'Anything before that is

Jeter takes BP


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
TAMPA- New York
Yankees shortstop Derek
Jeter took on-field batting
practice for the first time
since his 2013 season was
cut short by injuries.
Jeter hit with authority
to all fields during a five-
round, 39-swing session
Monday at the Yankees'
minor league complex.
Jeter also took grounders
at shortstop for the first
time this year, fielding 34
balls at his usual position.
Diamondbacks secure
manager, GM: Arizona extended
the contracts of manager Kirk Gibson
and general manager Kevin Towers.
Contracts for both had been set to
expire after the coming season. The
team would not divulge the lengths
of the extension or even whether the
lengths were the same for both.

Mets sign Farnsworth:
Reliever Kyle Farnsworth agreed to


a minor league contract with the
New York Mets and will report as a
non-roster player. The 37-year-old
right-hander was 3-1 with two saves
and a 4.70 ERA in 48 games last year
with Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh,,
which signed him in August after he
was released by the Rays.

Around the nation:
Arizona avoided arbitration with
Gerardo Parra by agreeing to a
one-year, $4.85 million deal with the
two-time Gold Glove outfielder....
Right-hander Daniel Bard agreed
to a minor league contract with Texas
that includes an invitation to big
league spring training.
Third baseman David Freese
and reliever Kevin Jepsen reached
arbitration deals with the Los Angeles
Angels. Freese will make $5.05 million
in his first season with the Angels.
Jepsen will make $1,462,500. ...
The Orioles signed veteran infielder
Alex Gonzalez to a minor league
contract with an invitation to big
spring training camp.


Six of ESPN.com's eight
highest rated prospects,
and 25 of the top 50, have
signed or committed to
SEC teams. Five of the 15
prospects with five-star
ratings are Alabama
bound, including of-
fensive tackle Cameron
Robinson and defensive
end Da'Shawn Hand.
Luginbill calls it "a sensa-
tional class" that might be
Nick Saban's best with the

Fournette, he's one of
the best running back
prospects in 10 years,"
Shurburtt said. "You look
at it from that standpoint,
the running back talent in
the league is already very
good, and it's just getting
better."
POSITION LEADERS
If recruiting rankings
are like draft boards,
where teams rank players
overall and at their
position, then the SEC
has plenty of first-round-
ers. Seven SEC pledges
are rated the best at their
position in the composite
rankings out of the 14
spots where the No. 1 guy
has committed. Shurburtt
said that's sometimes a
better gauge than just
the number of stars by a
player's name.


COLLEGE BASKETBALL:



Walker


to make


Gators'


debut
By MARK LONG
ASSOCIATED PRESS
GAINESVILLE Florida
coach Billy Donovan has
done all he can to quell
expectations for highly
touted freshman Chris
Walker.
Last week, Donovan
made it clear that the
6-foot- 10 Walker will not
be Kevin Garnett this
season. On Monday, the
coach insisted Walker
will not play like Wilt
Chamberlain when he
makes his debut tonight
against Missouri.
But Walker will get on
the court for the first
time since arriving on
campus in mid-Decem-
ber, which should help
the third-ranked Gators
(19-2, 8-0 Southeastern)
as they near the halfway
mark of league play and
start getting ready for the
postseason.
"The expectations on
him as a player are way,
way up here, and he can't
reach them," Donovan
said. "He can't. I just want
people to know. This is
not going to be a guy that
you're going to say, 'Billy,
you really, really down-
played this thing. This guy
came out and played like
Wilt Chamberlain.' It's not
going to happen.
"He's a good player
that's got a lot in front of
him, a lot of growing and
maturing that's got to go
on. I really don't know
how much he can do. He
can go in there and do
some really, really good
things and really help our
team or he could go out
there and really be lost in
the game and get going
too fast and the emotion
of the game will over-
whelm him."
Florida has not made
Walker available for
interviews. School officials
anticipate Walker will
answer questions after
the game. Donovan gave
no indication how much
Walker will play against
the Tigers (16-5, 4-4).

*SUPER BOWL:



Game scores another record for viewers


By DAVID BAUDER
ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEWYORK -For the
fourth time in five years,
the Super Bowl has set
a record for the most-
watched television event
in U.S. history, drawing
111.5 million viewers
even though the Seattle
Seahawks' 43-8 victory
over the Denver Broncos
wasn't really competitive.
The record is further
evidence of how live
events are becoming
dependable and valuable
properties for broadcast
television at a time the


audience is fragmenting
and ratings for regular
entertainment shows
continue to fall.
The game also set
standards for the most-
streamed sports event
online and, with 24.9
million tweets, the biggest
U.S. live TV event on
Twitter.
The Seattle victory
eclipsed the 111.3 million
viewers who watched the
2012 Super Bowl between
the New York Giants and
New England Patriots,
according to the Nielsen
company. Until last year's


game dipped slightly to
108.7 million, the Super
Bowl had set ratings
records for the previous
three years in a row.
"We were a little
surprised, absolutely,"
said said BillWanger,
executive vice president
for programming and
research at Fox Sports.
The blowout had
some at Fox worried
that enough people
would tune out in the
fourth quarter to ruin
any chance at a ratings
record.

Seahawks, of course,


think 'D'


By HOWARD FENDRICH
ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEWYORK -Less
than 12 hours after
winning the Super Bowl,
Seattle Seahawks coach
Pete Carroll already was
talking about getting
started on next season.
"The first meeting that
we'll have will be tomor-
row.... Our guys would
be surprised if we didn't,"
Carroll said Monday
morning. "We really have
an eye on what's coming,
and we don't dwell on
what just happened. We'll
take this in stride."
He appeared at a
news conference at a
Manhattan hotel with
linebacker Malcolm
Smith, the MVP of
Seattle's 43-8 victory over
Peyton Manning and
the Denver Broncos on
Sunday night.
Carroll oversees a team
with the fourth-youngest
roster for a Super Bowl
champion, with an aver-
age age of 26 years, 175
days, according to STATS.
The youngest champs
ever were the Pittsburgh
Steelers who won the
1975 Super Bowl. They
won a second consecutive
title the next year.
Seahawks quarterback
Russell Wilson just
wrapped up his second
season in the league, as
did Jermaine Kearse, the
receiver who caught one
of the QB's two touch-
down passes Sunday
night. Doug Baldwin, who
caught the other, is only
three years into his pro
career, as are star corner-
back Richard Sherman
and Smith, who at 24
is the fourth-youngest
player to be the Super
Bowl MVP
"We've seen the effort

of regular-season MVP
Manning in the first half
and a fumble recovery in
the second half.
Carroll said general
manager John Schneider
has positioned the
Seahawks to be able to
avoid the problems that
can make it hard to repeat
as NFL champions. Since
Denver repeated in the
1999 game, only one team
has won two Super Bowls
in a row, the New England
Patriots in 2004-05.
There's the need to
replace players who
leave via free agency. The

In Chicago, Mayor
Rahm Emanuel has
already begun lobbying
NFL Commissioner
Roger Goodell on behalf
of the Bears. Chicago was
the host city for NATO's
2012 summit, an event
Emanuel has compared
to hosting the Super
Bowl.
Goodell was non-
committal when asked
on Friday about the
league choosing another
cold-weather venue for
its championship game.
"We know there's


teams have a big fallout
after they win the Super
Bowl," Carroll said. "We're
not in that situation."
Carroll was reminded
during Sunday's game of
blowout victories in col-
lege football bowl games
when he was a champi-
onship-winning coach at
Southern California.
"It felt like it. It looked
like it. The score was like
it," he said Monday.
Carroll described the
lopsided nature of the
game as "kind of like an
avalanche," an interesting
choice of words given
the hubbub last week
over whether the first
outdoor Super Bowl at a
cold-weather site would
be affected by snow.
Instead, the weather
wasn't a factor Sunday
at the stadium in East
Rutherford, N.J., where
the temperature was 49
degrees at kickoff and
only some light rain fell.
On Monday morning,
meanwhile, driving snow
hit the area and forecasts
called for up to 8 inches.
"I don't know how (NFL
Commissioner Roger
Goodell) pulled it off, but
he pulled off the weather
in perfect fashion,"
Carroll joked. "The NFL is

fueled by its New York-
area setting was high

market, the Super Bowl
rating was higher than it
was two years ago when
the hometown Giants
won in dramatic fashion.
Fox said an average of
528,000 people watched
the live Internet stream of
the game, peaking at the
end of the third quarter.

Browns

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
CLEVELAND New
Cleveland Browns coach
Mike Pettine has his play
caller.
Kyle Shanahan was
hired as offensive coor-
dinator Monday after
spending the previous
four years in the same
role with the Washington
Redskins.
Pettine, hired Jan. 23 to
replace Rob Chudzinski,
is in his first job as an NFL
head coach. His expe-
rience is as a defensive
assistant, so he will rely
heavily on Shanahan,
who's been a coordinator
for the last six seasons
and has 10 years as an
NFL assistant.
An experienced co-
ordinator is crucial as
Cleveland tries to turn
around its fortunes. The
Browns, who had four
offensive players in the
Pro Bowl, are expected
to select a quarterback
early in May's draft and
Shanahan will have a
hand in his development.
Shanahan, 34, got his
first job as a coordinator
in 2008 when he was hired
by Houston at 28 years
old. After two seasons
there, he joined his father,
Mike, head coach of the
Washington Redskins.
Both Shanahans
spent four seasons with
Washington before being
fired Dec. 30 after a 3-13
season. They also clashed

NFL, transit agency
review logjam: The head of
New Jersey's transit agency defended
the response to delays for thousands
of fans leaving the Super Bowl by
train, as officials sought to understand
how ridership estimates were so far
off base.
About 33,000 people took the
7-mile ride between MetLife Stadium
and the Secaucus rail transfer station,
more than double the highest
estimates made by organizers and
transportation experts before the
game. The overcrowding on the
platform grew so severe immediately
following the game that the stadium
scoreboard flashed a sign asking fans
to remain inside.
"I think we did an excellent job
moving a lot of people to a major
event," New Jersey Transit executive
director James Weinstein said Monday.
"When 82,500 people leave a place
at the same time there's going be
congestion. There was, and we got
through that congestion in what I
believe was a realistic time. It would
have been nice if we could have done
it faster, but we did it as quickly and as
efficiently as we could do it'."
Those words may come as small
comfort for those who stood waiting
for trains until well after midnight. The
game ended around 10 p.m.

Heat coach Spoelstra
saw Seahawks preview:


Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra wasn't
surprised by how well the Seattle
Seahawks played in the Super Bowl,
because he witnessed a preview in
August.
Spoelstra was a guest during
training camp at Seahawks
headquarters, where he sat in on
meetings, spoke to the team and
watched practice.
"The speed, the quickness, the
power you saw from that team Sunday
night, I saw that in training camp',"
Spoelstra said. "My hat's off to them.
It's not easy to win a championship in
any sport."
Spoelstra, who has led the Heat to
back-to-back NBA titles, said he traded
text messages Monday with Seahawks
coach Pete Carroll and congratulated
him for Seattle's 43-8 victory over
Denver.

Jim Mclngvale some $7 million. He

The San Diego Chargers promoted
Nick Sirianni to quarterbacks coach

Olympic construction
sites, roaming the streets
and snowy mountain-
sides and begging for
scraps of food.
But as the games drew
near, authorities have
turned to a company to
catch and kill the animals
so they don't bother
Sochi's new visitors or
even wander into an
Olympic event.
Alexei Sorokin, director
general of pest control
firm Basya Services, told
The Associated Press
that his company had a
contract to exterminate
the animals throughout
the Olympics.
Sorokin described
his company as being
involved in the "catching
and disposing" of dogs,
although he refused to
specify how the dogs
would be killed or say
where they would take

Stray dogs sit outside the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park course, a venue for the snowboarding and
freestyle competitions at the Sochi Olympics. A pest control company that has been killing stray
dogs in Sochi for years told The Associated Press on Monday it has a contract to exterminate more
of the animals throughout the Winter Games.


the carcasses.
The dogs have been
causing numerous
problems, Sorokin said
Monday, including "biting
children."
He said he was stunned
last week when he attend-
ed a rehearsal for the
opening ceremony and
saw a stray dog walking in
on the performers.
"A dog ran into the
Fisht Stadium, we took
it away," he said. "God
forbid something like this


happens at the actual
opening ceremony. This
will be a disgrace for the
whole country."
A pack of at least a
half-dozen healthy-look-
ing dogs roamed around
a loading zone of a gon-
dola, 400 meters (1,200
feet) above the Gorki
Plaza in the mountain
venues for the Olympics
as construction work
continued late Sunday.
Olympic volunteers
patted and cooed over


strays that trotted
into the park Monday.
Another dog dropped to
the ground, sunbathing
under the Olympic Rings
near a public site where
medals will be presented
to athletes.
Animal activist Dina
Filippova is among the
opponents of the latest
dog-culling plan, saying
city authorities are using
the Olympics as an ex-
cuse to cover an ongoing
practice.

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
KRASNAYA POLYANA,
Russia -The slope-
style course that drew
complaints from some
riders ahead of the Sochi
Olympics is set to be
modified after Norwegian
medal hope Torstein
Horgmo broke his collar-
bone in practice Monday
and is out of the Winter
Games.
The 26-year-old
Horgmo landed heavily on
his face and right shoul-
der while attempting a
difficult trick on a rail near
the top of the course and
was taken to the athletes'
hospital at Krasnaya
Polyana, said team man-
ager Thomas Harstad.
Medical scans con-
firmed a fracture.
Athletes had expressed
concern about the steep
jumps at the Rosa Khutor
Extreme Park course
even before the official
practice began Monday,
days ahead of the first



GOLD
FROM PAGE 1
for the top American
skater, Ashley Wagner,
who struggled in Boston
but was given a spot
because of her strong
international record.
While Wagner reboots,
Gold has taken over
the spotlight. Unlike
the days of Tonya and
Nancy and its aftermath,
when figure skating was
front and center even in
non-Olympic years, the
sport seldom leaps into
the limelight now. But
with the Sochi Games
about to kick off, people
are paying attention to
the lutz-and-loop crowd.


AP FILE PHOTO
Norway's Torstein Horgmo, flying off a jump during the U.S.
Grand Prix slopestyle snowboarding finals, on Dec. 22 in Frisco,
Colo., was hospitalized after crashing during practice Monday.
qualifying runs Thursday Forsell said the changes
in the men's slopestyle. were minor.
International ski Riders discussed the
federation official course design at a meet-


Roberto Moresi, the
assistant snowboard race
director at Sochi, said the
course wasn't a factor in
Horgmo's crash, adding
it happened because "he
was just trying a really
hard trick."
Course designer Anders


In the United States,
that usually means
focusing on the top
woman. Although
Wagner could wind up
being that skater -
Lysacek didn't win the
U.S. championships
in 2010 before taking
the Vancouver title -
Gold is in the forefront
heading toward the start
of the team event.
"Going to nationals,
I was not going to just
participate, but to com-
pete, going for the top
spot, going for gold," she
said. "I dedicated myself
to that moment and I
was able to hit it pretty
well, and I am more than
happy with that.
"I think the year is
2014 and it's a new


ing after the first practice
session. Some thought
some of the jumps were
dangerous, others thought
the course was OK.
"It looks pretty sketchy,"
Roope Tonteri, the 2013
world champion in men's
slopestyle, was quoted as


Gracie. With Frank every
day after I am done
jumping, we just take
time to appreciate the
nuances and the music
and connecting with the
audience and judges and
have that warmth with
my skating, the things
that light up the rink."
Gold has leaped onto
the scene the past two
years. She and Wagner
finished high enough at
the 2013 world cham-
pionships to ensure the
American women would
have the maximum three
spots in the Sochi field.
She didn't do much in
the Grand Prix series,
but came on spectacu-
larly at nationals.
Now, it's on to the
Olympics.


saying. "It's not really good
for riders, and it's not real-
ly safe. I just don't want to
get injured. It's not a really
fun course to ride."

Around the rings: NBC is
using the Olympics to push interest in
technology allowing cable or satellite
TV subscribers to see live Winter
Olympics competition on mobile
phones or tablets. The network said it
will give subscribers a 30-minute"free
pass"to Olympics video before they
are asked to verify that they are paying
customers. On subsequent days, the
access will be limited to five minutes
before verification. ...
United Nations Secretary-General
Ban Ki-moon will take part in the
opening ceremony and deliver a
keynote address to the International
Olympic Committee's general assembly,
the first by a U.N. secretary-general,
officials said. ...
Mikko Koivu likely will not return
to the Minnesota Wild until after the
Olympics, leaving his availability for
Finland during the Winter Games in
question. He broke his right ankle Jan.
4 when he was hit by a puck and had
surgery to accelerate the recovery.


OLYMPIC GLANCE:
FIGURE SKATING
THE BASICS
In addition to men's and women's
singles, pairs and ice dance, the
IOC is adding a team competition.
Ten countries will take part,
combining the scores of their
entries in the four disciplines.
STARS TO WATCH
Yuna Kim of South Korea seeks to
become only the third woman to
win two consecutive gold medals.
Three-time world champion
Patrick Chan of Canada is the
favorite on the men's side.
DID YOU KNOW?
Russian or Soviet skaters have
won seven of 10 gold medals
in the event, but Canadian ice
dancers Tessa Virtue and Scott
Moir will defend their titles.

Si diagnosis ADRINKIN, REX'

scans in diagnosis K K^a


DEAR DR. ROACH:
I read your response
regarding CT versus
MRI scans. I have severe
pain in my right hip, on
the outside, radiating to
my right foot. It is a hot,
burning pain, hamper-
ing activity. I saw an
orthopedic surgeon,
who X-rayed it and said
it is not surgical. I have
arthritis in my hip, but
not bad enough for
replacement. I would
really like to know what
the problem is, and I
wonder whether an MRI
would help in diagno-
sis. You mentioned in
your answer that a CT
is better at looking at
bones, and MRI is better
for soft tissue. I thought
it was just the opposite,
as MRIs seem to be
ordered all the time for
athletic injuries, while
CTs look at the abdo-
men, etc. I just want to
find out what is going
on and how it can be
treated. I did have an
injection, which helped
for maybe a month, but
all is as bad as ever now.
-A.A.
ANSWER: Athletic
injuries can involve
bones and soft tissues,
and MRI scans show
soft tissue, such as
tendons and ligaments,
very well. Actually, both
MRI and CT can be used
for many situations, and
I stand by my previous
advice that the advice
of your own doctor or
consulting radiologist
may be necessary to
choose the best test for
you individually.
These scans show anat-
omy; that is, the form
of the body's structures.
There are many things
they can't show. For
example, a pain that is
burning in character and
radiates down the leg
suggests a neuropathy -
pain caused by damage
to a nerve. Sometimes
an MRI can show the
cause of neuropathy, as
in the case of a nerve
compression by a herni-
ated intervertebral disk.
Other times, the MRI is
normal with a damaged
nerve.
Another possible
cause is trochanteric
bursitis, inflammation
of the fluid-filled bursa
over the outside of the
hip. The pain is right
over the point of the hip
on the side, which usu-
ally is tender. Injection
of this area provides
short-term relief, but


Dr. Roach

physical therapy often
is necessary to treat the
underlying cause.
DEAR DR. ROACH:
About 10 months ago,
my husband noticed a
small blebb" on the skin
near his right hip area.
He used tag away" and
alcohol swabs daily;
however, the area is a
giant 2-inch-diameter
"blotch" with an open
sore in the middle. He
insists that it is almost
gone. I am afraid that
it is skin cancer, very
serious and that it needs
to be checked out by a
dermatologist. How do I
get him to go? P.K.F.
ANSWER: Please
tell him that I think it
sounds like it might be
skin cancer, such as a
squamous cell carcino-
ma, and that he should
see a dermatologist
immediately. Some peo-
ple have an immense
capacity for convincing
themselves that nothing
is wrong. The sooner he
gets an evaluation, the
better.
DR. ROACH WRITES:
I get a lot of mail, for
which I am grateful, but
I can't answer all of it,
nor can I answer letters
personally. I am more
likely to address your
question if it is short
and of general interest.
I also get a lot of feed-
back on my columns. I
do read every letter that
I am sent, and if many
people tell me about
a treatment I hadn't
mentioned, I am more
likely to include it in a
follow-up column.
Dr. Roach regrets that
he is unable to answer
individual letters, but
will incorporate them
in the column whenever
possible. Readers may
email questions to
ToYourGoodHealth@
med.cornell.edu or

The unwanted bottles


Dear Heloise: I try to
recycle anything and ev-
erything. Can you tell me
if there is a place that will
recycle all of the brownish,
small prescription bottles?
My city curbside recycling
program does not accept
them. Janet D. in Texas
Unfortunately, these
prescription bottles are
not easy to "take care of."
Most curbside recycling
programs will not accept
them because of the small
size: They can't easily run
through the automated
recycling machines. If
they get into the machine,
they break into pieces, fall
through and end up in the
landfill anyway.
Heloise Central found
that no pharmacies would
accept the bottles back.
There are some mail-back
programs, but you would
need to do research on any
programs that are available
in your area. With more
readers wanting to recycle
these bottles, hopefully the
pharmacies will start tak-
ing them back. If you have
no recycling option, then
take the empty bottles,
being sure to remove the
labels, and place them in
the garbage. Heloise

Safety hint
Dear Heloise: Many of us
hang a tea towel over the
handle on the oven door. I
used to, until one day when
I was making a meatloaf in
too shallow a pan. Some
fat must have sputtered
out of the pan, hit the hot
element and sent out a
quick flash of flame, just


Hints from Heloise

enough to set the tea towel
on fire. I happened to walk
into the kitchen, and there
it was, burning away! Now
I hang the towel on the
refrigerator door. Linda
M., via email

Reusable bags
Dear Readers: More of
us use reusable bags when
shopping, but how often do
you clean those bags? Here
are some hints for using
and cleaning reusable bags:
*When checking out,
ask that foods such as
meats and fish be placed
in plastic bags before
being packed in reus-
able bags. This will cut
down on any leaks and
cross-contamination from
these foods to the bags.
Have separate reusable
bags for nonfood items.
Plastic-lined reusable
bags should be hand-
washed using soap and
hot water. Let air-dry.
Cloth reusable bags
should be washed ac-
cording to the care label.
Otherwise, wash in the
washing machine with
laundry detergent. Then
dry in a dryer, or let air-dry.

Wives banished from men's

club should start their own


DEAR ABBY: My hus-
band and I live in a 55-plus
retirement community. We
do many things together,
but we also do things in-
dependently. One resident
decided to form two men's
clubs. One meets every
week for breakfast, and
the other twice a month at
night. The members go to
each other's homes for the
evening meetings.
Abby, the man who
started these clubs is
chauvinistic. He made a
rule that women are not
allowed in their own homes
when their husbands host
a meeting "no skirts
allowed." Therefore, even
though the wife prepares
everything for her hus-
band's meeting, she's told
to slip out of the house
before anyone arrives.
My husband agrees that
this is ridiculous and is
considering quitting the
club, but he has formed
friendships with some
of the men. The guys are
bamboozled by the leader
and tell their wives that
anything said at a meeting
is "confidential."
The obvious solution
would be to meet at a
coffee shop, but the man
in charge says the homes
provide a more intimate
setting. My husband feels
bad about it, and I don't
want him to quit a group
he enjoys. Any suggestions?
-GOOD LITTLE VEGAS
WIFE
DEAR GOOD LITTLE
WIFE: It appears the found-
er of the clubs has his head
stuck firmly in the 1950s.
And while we can't change
that, I do have some
suggestions.
The first is that the wives
stop preparing anything
and let the "bachelors" do it
themselves or order takeout
or deli for their meetings.
The second is that the
"widows" join together for
an evening of fun while
the men are having their
meetings. Of course, noth-
ing that happens during
these ladies' evenings of
fun should be shared with
the husbands including
what they did or what clubs
they may have visited.


Dear Abby

PS. Because your
husband feels bad about
how the women are being
treated, perhaps he should
consider attending only
the breakfast get-togethers
and seeing those men
in the evening group
he has bonded with
independently.
DEARABBY: My girl-
friend loses her keys, wallet,
credit cards or iPad every
day. I have suggested ways
to avoid losing her keys. For
example always use the
same pocket in her purse
or put them in a bowl by
the door. She doesn't do it. I
think it is to spite me.
She has now become
resentful that I have
become impatient about it.
I'm frustrated because this
is something that can easily
be fixed, and I'm tired of
searching for 20 minutes
for whatever she has
misplaced. What can I do?
- BEYOND FRUSTRATED
IN L.A.
DEAR BEYOND
FRUSTRATED: The first
thing you should do is
understand that your
girlfriend isn't doing this to
upset you, and it's possible
that she becomes as upset
as you do when it happens.
While I agree that part of
the problem is that she's
disorganized, it could
also be that her thinking
is scattered. When she
puts something down, she
isn't fully in the moment.
Her thoughts maybe on
something else.
Frankly, there isn't any-
thing you can do about it.
If there is a solution to your
girlfriend's problem, it's that
she should slow down and
think about exactly what
she's doing when she's do-
ing it, which is sometimes
easier said than done.


"And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so
much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast
saying, Godd ,ei I, iio:ifi1 to me a sinner"- Luke 18:13.
Here is the prayer that will put to rest the anxiety of
your soul. "For whosoever shall call upon the name of
the Lord shall be saved."
"Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shall be
saved."

Opening lead: Three of A
This hand is from a recent teams'
event.
West, warned off a diamond lead
by the auction, led a perfectly normal
low spade. This was ducked in
dummy, South winning East's jack
with the ace. Declarer continued with
the spade 10, won by West's king,
South noting the fall of East's eight.
West shifted to a low heart, won by
East with the king, and hearts were


continued. South won in hand with
the queen and led a spade, inserting
dummy's seven when West played
low.
South now had eight tricks three
spades, two hearts, two clubs and the
ace of diamonds. Declarer could have
made an overtrick by playing West
for all the diamonds, but that would
not be the right percentage play.
South correctly ran the queen of
diamonds to West's king, planning on
a double-finesse. West cleared the
hearts and South played a diamond to
his nine. No luck on that play, but
there was plenty of luck otherwise.
West had no winners to cash, East
had no entry and South had nine
tricks!
In the replay, the other North-
South pair had a convoluted "expert"
auction, resulting in the same
contract played by North rather than
South. A less helpful opening lead
left declarer with guesses in every
suit. He didn't guess very well and
the contract drifted two down a
very useful swing for the successful
declarer's team.

Three numbers about Lenny Hills: (1) 378 (2) 272 (3) 235 The rst is the number of the pounds Lenny lugged on his 6-foot frame a year ago. The second is his weight now. The third is what he hopes the scale will read by the end of April. The closer I get, the harder it is, he said Monday, standing outside the Yout Health Club and dressed all in black. Im mourning my loss of fat. Lenny, 41, moved to North Port in 1986 and attended Venice High School, where he played football and baseball. After graduation, he entered one of the worlds topnotch tness programs: The U.S. Marine Corps. Oorah! Lenny was lean and mean, as they say, although he seems a genuinely nice and easy-going guy. He said his ve years in the Corps left him in world-class shape. Returning home, Lenny took on a job with the North Port Police Department. He also took on a few extra pounds, then a few more and a few more, etc. Up to 378. I might have been heavier, he said, but I avoided the scale. Then, last year, Lenny went out on a call. And there was an older lady that kind of embarrassed me due to my weight. I knew I had an issue, he said. Youre struggling with that within yourself. But Lenny didnt do anything about it. Until the Betty Moment. This old lady, Betty, embarrassed me, called me out in front of my co-workers, in front of some reghters, Lenny said. I was mortied. A short time later, Lenny said, he was called to another incident. And as I arrived Im thinking, here come those same reghters again. Great. These guys again. Turned out to be the turning point. Fireghter Tanya Schultz pulled Lenny aside and opened up about her own struggles with weight before she joined the department. It kind of inspired me, Lenny said. I went home. I parked my car and went straight to the gym. That was last April 26. Since then, Lennys missed only two days. He lifts weights and does aerobics twothree hours a day. On his days off, he pulls two-a-days. He runs 20-30 miles a week. Intake counts too. Lenny sticks to high protein, low carbs, a lot of chicken, a lot of vegetables, more sh. Its not a diet, he said, its a lifestyle change. At rst it was kind of tough, but I know I wanted to attain my goals and stay on track and be regimented. Single-tracked. I actually treated myself to a pizza last week for the rst time in a year, Lenny said. It was good, but I felt like I cheated myself by eating it. He also followed realistic, incremental goals. Goal one was to lose 50 pounds. Then to drop below 300. Then to hit 235, his Marine weight. When he does hes aiming for his oneyear anniversary in April Lenny expects to go back and see Betty again. I might just send her a fruit basket to say, thanks, he said. And hell push on toward 200. Ive worked too hard to get here. Im not going to revert back to where I was. One more thing: advice for others? Its never too late to start. Anybody can do it if you set your mind to it. Youve just got to be prepared to meet your Betty.

At the Jan. 21 County Commission workshop, members of the Team Parkside neighborhood group identied priorities to be undertaken with a portion of the $9 million authorized for the Parkside community redevelopment area. The proposed improvements, stakeholders said, would help transform the aging neighborhood into a more aesthetic and healthy community. But the Parkside CRA was created four years ago, and homeowners and stakeholders are clamoring to see progress begin. We cant tell you how anxious we are to see the work get going, said Tom Rice, CEO of Fawcett Memorial Hospital and Team Parkside chair. The list of projects, all in various stages of design or concept, include the beautication of Harbor Boulevard, Elkcam Boulevard enhancements, a full upgrade of McGuire Park and other proposals. Making Harbor Boulevard into a signature community gateway calls for a landscaped median and curbs and gutters for the four-lane road, from U.S. 41 to Olean Boulevard, along with wide, multiuse pathways on both sides, lighting and shade trees. The $4.4 million project would be paid from tax increment nancing, which last year brought in $42,773. Additionally, there would be an Mission: ParksideBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERCommunity team wants shovels in the groundPARKSIDE | 6 Hail to the chief Left: Charlotte County Fire Chief Dennis DiDio addressed a crowd of over 50 at a retirement ceremony Monday at the Charlotte County Administration Building in Murdock. The chief, who spent 27 years at the helm, was praised by all ve county commissioners and by members of his agency. Commissioners declared Feb. 3, 2014, as Chief Dennis R. DiDio Day.State ofcials have begun reviewing thousands of cases including a dozen from the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce that may have been affected by evidence tampering from a supervisor at a crime lab in Pensacola. DeSoto County also is among the 35 counties that may be affected. Teams of sworn personnel were deployed throughout the state (Monday) to begin reviewing potentially impacted cases, said Florida Department of Law Enforcement spokeswoman Samantha Andrews. Last week, the FDLE began an investigation into missing prescription pain pills from the evidence room at the Escambia County Sheriffs Ofce. The pills had been replaced with over-thecounter drugs. The chemist believed to be at fault crime lab analyst supervisor Joseph Graves resigned Monday, and the FDLE is now reviewing all cases he processed at Pensacola Regional Crime Laboratory, Andrews said. Graves worked over 2,500 cases for state law enforcement agencies, Crime lab breach could affect local casesBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERCRIME | 6PUNTA GORDA Just three years after the popular dragon boat races roared into town, it appears theyve sputtered out. Race supporters confirmed that the 2014 Dragon Boat races on Charlotte Harbor have been canceled. According to Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce president John Wright, the boat races have been in the red for the last two years. The Chamber has financially supported the event since its inception three years ago. This year, a lack of participation, conflicting event schedules and competition from other dragon boat races across the state, forced organizers to call it quits, he said. In order to make the event financially viable even just to break even we needed between 28 and 30 boats, Wright said. We had that the first year, but we did not have the second or third year. In fact, the third year was the lowest number of boats weve ever had. Mailers were sent out to past years competitors asking if they were interested in this years races, and Dragon Boat races extinguishedBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITERDRAGON | 6 SteveBAUMANNCOLUMNISTLIFE STORIES SUN PHOTOS BY ADAM KREGERDon Gasgarth, owner of Don Gasgarths Charlotte County Ford in Port Charlotte, presented members of Charlotte County Fire/ EMS with a large American ag on Monday.

Featured EventsPAID ADVERTISEMENTSNo matter what the weather may be outside, it's guaranteed that it will be the Hottest Business Day in Paradise inside the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center in Punta Gorda on Thursday. That's the title of the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce's third annual business expo, a trade show and business summit where more than 100 businesses from Charlotte County will showcase their products and services from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free to the public, with the theme Heating Up the Business Climate, the expo will include speed-networking business seminars, business owners sharing their success stories, an address on business etiquette, and even a sneak preview of the 2014 production of Dancing with the Charlotte Stars. Chamber executive director Julie Mathis said it's an ideal opportunity for the public and other businesses to learn from a hundred businesses, meet business decision-makers, make new business relationships, scope out the competition, take part in business-to-business networking, and learn about a wide range of business products and services in the county. The expo is sold out again for exhibitors, she said, for businesses, including auto dealers, insurance, banks, printers, health care, nonprofits, the Charlotte Stone Crabs and everything in between. The day will start with a continental breakfast from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. At 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., there will be speed-networking business sessions. At noon, the troupe from this year's Dancing with the Charlotte Stars, including Mathis, will entertain. At 12:30 p.m., guest speaker Pat Cataldo, from Business and Professional Women/ Englewood & Venice, will speak on the Ten Business Etiquette Rules Every Professional Needs to Know, and Minding Your Manners in the Workplace. Cataldo, of Punta Gorda, is a consultant, author and teacher who taught executive development at the University of North Carolina and Penn State University, and has held senior executive positions in the telecommunications, retail and computer industries. A highlight of the after noon session will be the expo roundtable from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., where attendees will get to listen to a group of local business owners and managers discuss their most powerful behind the curtain marketing, sales and business building tactics and strategies. The participants will also share a brief success case study from their experiences, adaptable to other businesses. A grand prize drawing for attendees will be held at 3:35 p.m., and the doors will be closed to the public at 4 p.m. Chamber expo to heat up business climateBy BILL JONESSUN CORRESPONDENTIF YOU GOWhat: Hottest Business Day in Paradise When: Thursday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Where: Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center, 75 Taylor St., Punta Gorda Information: 941-627-2222 PHOTO PROVIDEDMore than 100 businesses from Charlotte County are expected to showcase their products at the expo.

Our Town Page 6 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, February 4, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE estimated $1.3 million cost associated with the Harbor Boulevard project for utility upgrades and relocation, ofcials said. Elkcam Boulevard, at a price tag of $652,000, would also feature a 10-foot wide pathway, part of a walking/biking loop along Harbor Boulevard, Gertrude Avenue and Aaron Street. More trees and irrigation improvements are also planned. Another key element of neighborhood renewal would be the creation of a town square, complete with covered stage and seating, on land to be acquired from Promenades Mall. Port Charlotte doesnt have a center of town, County Commissioner Tricia Duffy said. Were hoping this might be a gathering place for people in Port Charlotte. Team Parkside is particularly urging commissioners to accelerate the makeover of McGuire Park, which could include a splash pad, renovated tennis courts, and other improvements. There are very nice parks in the area. This one could be made something special, Rice said. In years past, it has been an attraction for crime and other problems, but we can turn this into a magnet for children and families. Commissioner Duffy also is in favor of moving up the McGuire Park rebuild, saying the community wants to see shovels in the ground. We really need to have something thats under construction, she said. One of the fastest things we can do is some park work. But Commissioner Bill Truex said he wants to complete the county wide parks master plan before advancing specic projects. A compromise was reached when staff indicated they could integrate the county master plan and McGuire Park design, letting the commission decide the priority of projects at a later date. But besides providing additional amenities, the County Commission is taking aim at improving the dilapidated housing stock in Parkside and all county CRAs, outside of Punta Gorda. To revive homes that have been run down by absentee landlords, bad tenants or simply age, the county is considering new regulations for abandoned buildings and rental properties. The focus on abandoned buildings is multipronged. First, the county would like to expedite the process of identifying and securing them. As such, ofcials are embarking on a pilot project in Parkside, paid for with $5,000 in TIF money, that would use a clear Plexiglas rather than plywood to board up abandoned buildings until they are xed up or sold. This would not only make them more presentable but would allow law enforcement to look inside the homes for squatters and other illegal activity, ofcials said. The county has boarded up eight Parkside homes in the past with three more to go, said Sean Horton of county code enforcement. There is a total of 58 vacant properties in Parkside, he said, including 10 homes that have been, or are due to be, demolished. A registration of rental properties, recently adopted by other communities facing the same post-recession blight, also would be a useful tool in safeguarding public health and safety, ofcials said. While the county has received some comments that the proposed registry is too Big Brother, ofcials maintain it is needed to ensure basic maintenance standards. The landlords will be very unhappy, the Fire/ EMS people will be very happy with the program, Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch said. It obvi ously will not be popular with everyone.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comPARKSIDEFROM PAGE 1according to a FDLE press release. We are only reviewing cases from 2006 and beyond because that is the year this chemist began working drug cases, said Andrews. Unfortunately, I cannot release any details about our review. Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce spokeswoman Debbie Bowe said Monday she wasnt sure how many if any of the local cases being looked into were still open. At this time, we do not think there will be a signicant impact on our cases, she said. DeSoto County has been potentially affected by the tampering, the FDLE release states. Personnel at the DeSoto County Sheriffs Ofce said Monday they werent sure yet if any of their cases would be reviewed. Sarasota County agencies were not affected by the tamper ing, and neither was the Punta Gorda Police Department, according to spokespersons. Sun staff writer Drew Winchester contributed to this report.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comCRIMEFROM PAGE 1 the response, Wright said, was limited. In addition, the number of dragon boat races held across the state has grown over the years many of them in larger venues, on calmer waters and with more teams. So we decided to put the event on hiatus for 2014 and regroup to see whether in fact this is something we can bring back in 2015, Wright said. And if so, when? Is there a time slot within the dragon boat association calendar that would be better than the April date that we chose and are the local teams going to be supporting it? Wright said the decision to cancel was fueled by many reasons, including scheduling conicts with the Block Party in Punta Gorda and the Charlotte Harbor Superboat races, both of which were scheduled the same weekend in April. Bob Brazeau, longtime dragon boat racer and founder of the Charlotte Harbor Paddlers, said he was sad to see the event go. Its unfortunate that we lost our venue here but perhaps someone will step up over the next year or so and we may be able to start it again, he said. Dragon boat racing has been a longtime sport in Canada watched by many, but in recent years it has gained popularity in the U.S. spreading to cities like Tampa, Miami and Sarasota. In Punta Gorda, the races drew close to 3,000 spectators, officials said. It is a fun sport, Brazeau said. And a sport that people of all ages can participate in and you can take it to whatever level youd like. For now, it doesnt appear the event (which was free to the public) has enough teams to make it financially viable, Wright said. This was not an easy decision to take, he said. If there is not a significant number of people to say, Hey, bring it back, we really enjoyed that, then we will probably have to say lets move on to something else that we can afford.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comDRAGONFROM PAGE 1 ENGLEWOOD In November, Debby Beck was hired and ready to serve as the new executive director of the Englewood-Cape Haze Area Chamber of Commerce. Monday she announced her resignation as the chambers executive director. With great regret, I am leaving the chamber, Beck said Monday. She said she had such high hopes and plans to help boost morale of the chamber membership. Beck intends to stay in Englewood as a private consultant for businesses and nonprofits. Im not leaving town, she said. I love Englewood. I can better serve Englewood apart from the chamber. Elaine Miller was installed as the chambers president Friday. In her installation speech, she addressed the vacancy left with Becks departure. The currently vacant position of executive director denotes that our organization is still undergoing a leadership transition, Miller said. The level of expertise that the (chamber board) is striving for has not been realized. A passionate per sonal connection to the organizations mission and leveraged interest and compassion for its members must be coupled with financial savvy, visionary leader ship, and management experience is essential, she said. The chamber board meets Wednesday and is expected to discuss and address the executive director vacancy, Miller said. From 2008 to 2012, John Bednerik worked as the Englewood chambers executive director. Between Bednerik and Beck, two others served in that position. Mary Smith was hired as the executive director in January 2012 but resigned in April 2013. Don Musilli served as the chambers interim director after Smiths resignation and until the chamber hired Beck three months ago. Prior to coming to Englewood, Beck, who has family living in Sarasota, worked for more than 20 years for the Florida Bar in Tallahassee, and served as the executive director for the International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. Shes also worked as an independent contractor staging conferences. She also served as an events director for the Florida Chamber of Commerce. Beck described her new Englewood-based consulting firm as one that will offer executive services, leadership and board training, nonprofit board management, event planning and fundraising.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comDirector leaves Chamber By STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERNEW NAME FOR ENGLEWOOD CHAMBERAt her installation as the president of the Englewood-Cape Haze Chamber of Commerce Friday, Elaine Miller announced the chamber will be renamed the Englewood Florida Chamber of Commerce. She said, The continuing efforts in rebranding the Chamber, consis tent in the website, print material and programs will better convey the quality, credibility and experience that our members deserve. Within the next two months, Miller said the chamber expects to have its new website up and running. For more information, call the Englewood chamber at 941-474-5511.

Our Town Page 8 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, February 4, 2014 Parking lot sale a successEditor: On behalf of all of us here at KDW Radio, I would like to take this opportunity to extend a sincere thanks to our friends, neighbors and the entire community for their generous support of KDW Radios recent parking lot sale. Through your support, we are able to continue to provide the programming that reects the interests of the residents of North Port and the surrounding areas. We would also like to offer a special thank you to the following individuals who volunteered their time and energy to make this parking lot sale a success: Renee Morea, Bea Fefel, Virginia Hussey, Linda Wagner, Linda Cook, George and Gail Lavatelli, Dorrie Nolan, Holly Sias, Kym and Andy Gerberich and a special thank you to Tillie the Clown.John Fefel North PortWhat will we outsource next?Editor: OUTSOURCING 911 seems to be another business that the majority of city commissioners cannot run either so they say, sell it or get someone else to run it. This semi-ctitious $8 million they are going to save on outsourcing the 911 Dispatch service is none other than the wages of the 12 dispatch operators who are serving our community so well. Lets see now: 12 x 40 hrs. @ $16 per hour = $7,680 x 52 weeks per year = $400,000. Now when you add the 20 years of this potential savings, this comes up to the $8 million the City was going to save by giving the 911 service to Sarasota County. Do they really think the county is going to do this for nothing? When we no longer have a 911 dispatch service in North Port and because someone in Sarasota cant nd some of our strange street assignments and someone dies from lack of response, who is going to be sued? Yes, we had better put some of that savings in an escrow account to pay for claims. And another thing, when the city gives away its 911 emergency service, what is next Sarasota County to take over the police department and then reghters/paramedics too stands to reason doesnt it. Id say, lets run the city as a business, and if they cant do it, lets outsource the commissioners.Ed Bonacorsi Port CharlotteWants survey on lm festEditor: I would like to take a survey to determine if Charlotte County could support a lm festival.Tommy Thomas Rotonda WestTeachers, schools doing great jobEditor: I feel I have to respond to the letter, Schools, county have failed us. For the past seven years I have been a part of the teacher of the year selection committee. I have had the chance to go into the classroom and observe. I see bright students and amazing teachers providing an excellent education. You say, Dr. Whittaker should be terminated. At rst, I was going to just ignore your letter as someone who does not understand how the school system works. But then I read that you are a parent of a child in the school system and I thought, why not take this opportunity to educate you on how the school system functions? I know you were trying to make a point, but then you tried to make the schools become a part of county government. They are two different entities. The county government has nothing to do with the School Board. The School Board has nothing to do with Winchester Road. Why dont you contact me and we will set up a tour for you and I to go into a classroom so you can see for yourself what an outstanding job our teachers do for your child and every child in the school system every day. At the same time I can give you a quick course on county government.Bill Dryburgh Punta GordaGet county budget under controlEditor: Charlotte County Commissioners have nalized the proposed county budget. The county budget runs county business on about 19 percent of the ad valorem portion of your property tax bill. The actual constitutional obligations of the county are continually being paid by the special assessment or non-ad valorem tax, which has no exemptions and is not controlled by the millage rate. The non-ad valorem tax is not voted on and are controlled by private party interests and continually increase as the wants of a few dictate. It has been the pleasure of the County Commission to allow this practice to continue, and it is about time to get the county budget under control.Don Monroe Port CharlotteRest of the ethics storyEditor: I asked the Florida Ethics Commission to investigate Commissioner Duffys voting to give the United Way hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars while her husband sits on the United Ways Community Impact Committee, which is responsible for reviewing applications, evaluating the programs and making funding decisions for local nonprot agencies that will receive this taxpayer money from the United Way. I felt this gave the appearance of a conict of interest at the least, and could have rewarded some of Commissioner Duffys supporters. Politicians have been known to do this. I just want to know to whom Commissioner Duffys husband decided to give my taxpayer dollars. When ling an ethics complaint, I was not able to send supporting evidence, since you cannot attach copies of lengthy documents (or) video or audio tapes. The Ethics commission dismissed my complaint with this stunning comment: No factual investigation preceded the review, and therefore the Commissions conclusions do not reect on the accuracy of the allegations of the complaint. The bottom line is taxpayers dont know if Commissioner Duffy is guilty or not, since the Commission on Ethics did not investigate the matter. So what is the real purpose of the Ethics Commission, if the complainant cannot send evidence and the Commission doesnt investigate? Is this another government agency giving the appearance of keeping things legal and honest, when its a cover for our elected ofcials to hide behind? To add insult to injury, taxpayers are spending nearly $3,000 for a lawyer Commissioner Duffy didnt need to hire. This commissioner has $508,000 in declared assets who stated it was a hardship to pay for a lawyer and wanted the taxpayers to foot her bill. This is a classic example of why voters across the political spectrum have come to despise our public ofcials and the newspapers that protect them.Robert Herriman Port CharlotteAccuseds workplace should not be namedEditor: I am outraged that your paper would deem it of such importance to include the place of employment of the recently arrested individual who may have been involved in a hit-and-run incident. Why not include who is his dentist, doctor, minister and perhaps what newspaper he reads if he is literate? I have never read an article that named a person who worked for the Sun who may have committed a crime that would appear to be detrimental to the image of this newspaper.Leon E. Levasseur Port CharlotteWhich homes will insurance impact?Editor: As a potential homebuyer in the Punta Gorda area, I have been turned off by the dour warnings on impending new ood insurance rates for older, lower homes. There have been many vague statements to the effect that it may be cheaper to build a new home than to absorb the higher ood insurance rates that will be imposed on some homes. My problem is that no one seems to be able to provide any substantive information on the amount of increase, what age homes are affected, what areas are impacted, etc. I have searched the governments website (oodsmart.gov) and nd it to be frustrating and unfruitful. Lacking information, I am reluctant to make an offer for any home or even a vacant lot. May I suggest that the Sun does an investigatory piece on this subject?

The evening was a great success. With the recent cuts to the school budget, community support is more important than ever. It is events like this that allow our students to be able to showcase their talents at competitions and festivals. We are already looking forward to next years event. Please feel free to visit our website at prideofpc. com.Jodi Hinand Port Charlotte Drug program needs a tweakDrug Free Charlotte County gave a party recently, and no one came. The substance-abuse prevention group, which targets schoolage youths, planned a big night with a DJ, prizes to give away and other promotions at Port Charlotte High School. The event was scheduled prior to a home basketball game a sure way to draw a crowd. DFCC leadership was, to say the least, disappointed when not one teenager showed up. Diane Ramseyer, DFCC director, was quick to point out the groups success in lowering the use of drugs and alcohol among Charlotte County students. Her message would be we are doing our job and we do it well. She would be right, to a point. Drug Free Charlotte County has had success. It does make a difference. But, at a recent roundtable discussion and in response to a Developmental Assets survey given all Charlotte County high school students, there were aws pointed out in the groups approach and in the general relationship between the community and teens. Teenagers, who said they feel they are not valued, said they have little input into DFCC events. They criticized that they often feel judged and preached to by adults. For all the good DFCC has done, any program can become stagnant without change. It may be time to implement some new strategies and refresh the message. And, the best place to develop those strategies would be to go to the teens themselves for their ideas. DiDio served county well through tough timesDespite working for Char lotte County since 1986 and serving as chief of the Fire/EMS department for the past 14 years, most residents probably didnt know Dennis DiDio. Thats a good thing. A headline-grabbing re chief is not what a community needs. What it needs is a Dennis DiDio, a chief who rose through the ranks of the department and got things done that needed to be done. As Sun Staff Writer Gary Roberts pointed out, that meant putting out res, both literally and guratively. A drawn-out dispute with the reghters union was the latest one. As DiDio said, I learned to work together with the re union. I came up through the ranks. We have a great relationship. Well before that, DiDio under went another trial by re in the form of Hurricane Charley, which destroyed three re stations and heavily damaged four others. DiDio never received the type of public applause that other hurricane recovery heroes have, but he never sought it, either. There was work to do. That work included establishing a Special Operations team, including one to handle hazardous materials. In the years after 9/11, public safety organizations had to be prepared for anything. He also added a marine unit and an air port rescue and reghting squad. Even as his department grew from 100 people to 240, DiDio had to manage the expansion under severe budgetary conditions. He targeted inefciencies and streamlined his top ranks in order to keep more reghters and emergency medical technicians in the eld. The turnout at his retirement ceremony Monday a U.S. ag hung between ladder engines at the administration building stands as a testament to his longevity and fair-mindedness. DiDio served Charlotte County well and we wish him the best as he bids his adopted home goodbye. TM7Pt.YTi iLt =r ; ,,o"JVSTi N FiCM'R STUMP Nis 1 "

The Sun /Tuesday, February 4, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINT Henry Waxman and George Miller are retir ing from the House and not running for re-election after 40 years as congressmen from southern and northern California. Also retiring and not running for re-election is Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa. Sen. Max Baucus of Montana will resign if, as expected, he is confirmed as ambassador to China. Both were first elected to the House in 1974 and were later elected to the Senate. These four are just about the last members serving in Congress of the 75 Democrats first elected to the House in the Watergate year of 1974. The only other members of the Class of 1974 are Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley, one of only 17 Republican freshmen elected that year, and Congressman Rick Nolan, who retired from the House in 1980 but was elected again in 2012 after 32 years in the private sector. Aside from these two outliers, the Class of 1974 is about to pass into history. What did it accomplish? First, it changed the way the House of Representatives operates, starting from before its members took the oath of office and continuing to the present day. Democrats had held majorities in the House for 20 years, but the liberal major ity in the caucus was often stymied by the seniority system that allowed conservative Southerners to hold key chairmanships. Beginning in 1974, the leadership allowed the Democratic caucus to vote up or down on chairmen against whom a certain number of signatures were gathered. San Franciscos Phil Burton, who had shrewdly backed many ers, gathered a sufficient number of signatures for every chairman. Three were defeated by the newly enlarged caucus, including one, first elected in 1940, who addressed the freshmen as boys and girls. Election of committee chairmen became routine, and it meant that anyone seeking a chair had better have a voting record in line with the Democrats liberal majority. For example, Jamie Whitten of Mississippi, first elected a month before Pearl Harbor, shifted suddenly from Right to Left. Republicans did something similar when they won their House majority in 1994. Their 73 freshmen, shrewdly backed and mentored by Newt Gingrich, supported his move to have chairmen chosen by a leadershipdominated steering committee. The result is that the Democratic Caucus became solidly liberal, and the Republican Conference (the two parties use different names) solidly conser vative. The polarized House is in large part the product of the Classes of 1974 and 1994. The change can be justified on neutral principles. Committees more closely resemble the legislature as a whole, which makes legislating more feasible and party leaders and members accountable to the voters. The downside, in some critics view, is that the election of chairmen also gave would-be chairmen motives to raise money for other members, very often from K Street lobbyists. Many Class of 1974 members proved to be productive legislators. Waxman, who ousted a more senior chairman of a health subcommittee in 1978, sponsored bipartisan laws on generic drugs and orphan drugs (for rare diseases), forced expansion of Medicaid in the Reagan years, shaped the 1990 Clean Air Act and pushed Obamacare and capand-trade through the House in 2009-10. Miller worked with John Boehner and Edward Kennedy on the Education Act of 2001. Harkin helped lead the bipartisan move to double funding for the National Institutes of Health over five years. Baucus led Senate Finance Democrats for 13 years. The Class of 1974 also shifted the House and the congressional Democratic Party from hawkish to dovish. One of its first acts in March 1975 was to block funding for South Vietnam when it was under attack by the North. Saigon fell in April. In the 1980s, the Democratic House kept pushing back on the Reagan foreign policy. In 2002, Nancy Pelosi, who holds the seat once held by Phil Burton, led most House Democrats to oppose the Iraq war resolution. Pelosi says she is staying on, even as her ally Waxman and her consigliere, Miller, leave the House. The 201-member caucus she leads has more black and Hispanic members and fewer young doves and reformers than the 291-member caucus Waxman and Miller entered nearly 40 years ago. Still, the Class of 1974 has left a mark on history though not as much as one Democrat who narrowly lost a House race that year, a 28-year-old Arkansan named Bill Clinton. Michael Barone is a senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner. Readers can reach him via www. washingtonexaminer. com.The Democratic Class of 1974 Michael Barone One way to think about the State of the Union is to examine the depressing catalog of last years unfinished business reforming immigration, repairing crumbling infrastructure, expanding early childhood education. This list resembles a New Years resolution dutifully dusted off every Jan. 1 Lose weight! Get organized! but never achieved. Another approach is to focus on items that fade or silently disappear from the to-do list. This enterprise is even more depressing. The resolution to shed pounds bespeaks some lingering hope and determination. One understandable example is reducing gun violence, which dwindled from an impassioned this time is different peroration to a checkthe-box sentence. When it comes to the intertwined issues of dealing with the debt and controlling entitlement spending, the presidential silence was even more deafening. There was a glancing reference to bringing down our deficit in a balanced way. About controlling Medicare costs or putting Social Security on a sustainable footing in time to avert punishing cuts nary a whisper. The contrast with 2013 was striking. Then, President Obama noted that the biggest driver of our long-term debt is the rising cost of health care for an aging population and argued that those of us who care deeply about programs like Medicare must embrace the need for modest reforms otherwise, our retirement programs will crowd out the investments we need for our children, and jeopardize the promise of a secure retirement for future generations. That the president has tired of this issue is no surprise. It gener ates grief from a base he needs to rev up for November. Suggesting even modest reforms, such as changing the cost-of-living calculation for Social Security, produces a revolt from the left. Meanwhile, the president lacks willing partners among Republicans, with their been-there, done-that attitude toward tax revenue. From the presidential perspective, hes done his painful share. He agreed to spending cuts and secured tax increases that total close to $4 trillion, assuming the sequester cuts (or their equivalent) stick. Meanwhile, the decline in the growth of health care costs is looking more like significant trend than accidental blip. As administration officials see it, why expend presidential rhetoric on changes that arent going to happen, certainly not in an election year, when he can spend the time to push for programs (infrastructure, education, immigration reform) that stand some chance of passage and could help produce the economic growth essential to paring down the debt? The problem with this argument is that it feeds into the increasingly conventional narrative about the debt and entitlement reform theres no need to worry, and anyone who does is a misguided deficit scold. Thats wrong. Leave aside the number games about deficits cut by more than half, as the president back-patted on Tuesday night. True, and better than the alternative, but a misleading and irrelevant measure. First, the vaunted halving stems from the remarkable (and justifiable) ramp-up in deficit spending at the start of the financial crisis. The deficit in 2009 was $1.4 trillion (and 9.8 percent of gross domestic product). The comparable 2013 figures are $680 billion and 4.1 percent, according to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget. Vastly improved, but higher in percentage terms than in all but seven years between 1948 and 2008. Second, and more important, is the stunning rise in the amount of debt as a share of the economy. When George W. Bush took office, debt stood at 33 percent of GDP. Obama inherited a debt of 43 percent of GDP. That figure is now about 74 percent, the highest since 1950. It is projected to drop to 68 percent by 2018 as additional spending cuts are implemented. But then, according to the Congressional Budget Office, the debt begins to slowly rise again, driven by increasing interest costs and growing spending for Social Security and government health care programs. By 2038, the CBO projects, debt would reach 100 per cent of GDP, more than any year except 1945 and 1946. This is scary, or should be. The CBO ticked off the reasons: Large deficits over the long term drag down economic growth, crowding out investment and driving up interest rates. For the federal budget, higher interest costs consume a growing share of spending, preventing revenue from being used in more productive ways. Sky-high debt constrains policymakers flexibility to respond to emer gencies such as war or recession. It raises the risk of a fiscal crisis in which investors become unwilling to finance U.S. borrowing. Once this president promised to stop kicking the can down the road. Now, he acts as if there is no can. Ruth Marcus is a columnist for The Washington Post.

Compiled by Adam KregerReport: Two hospitalized in wrench attack CHARLOTTE COUNTY On Saturday, the Patriot Riders of America, a nonprofit fundraising group dedicated to assisting veterans needs, will have a poker run to assist in raising funds to construct the Vietnam Wall of Southwest Florida. The cost to ride is $10 per person and $5 for passengers. Registration for the event will take place at 9:30 a.m. at American Legion Post 110 in Port Charlotte with kickstands up at 11 a.m. There will be three stops on the run. The first will be at the Open Road Grill in Arcadia where there will be live music. The bikes will then proceed to Laishley Park so everyone can view the site where The Wall will be built. Then, on the last leg of the ride, the bikes will return to American Legion Post 110. An H&R 12-gauge shotgun and a Benjamin .22 caliber pellet rifle equipped with a 3-9x40 scope will be raffled off, according to Ken Rouleau, chairman of the board of directors of the Patriot Riders. Its a top of the line air rifle and scope, he said. We will also have a Chinese auction and a 50/50 raffle. Rouleau, who is also on the finance committee for The Vietnam Wall of Southwest Florida said that there have been numerous fliers distributed throughout Charlotte County to make residents aware of the event. I will be on the radio today on Clear Channel that will hopefully reach our local stations here and tape an announcement about donating to help construct The Wall in Laishley Park, he said. Rouleau said that the committee is asking that the community and the local business owners donate and become sponsors of the memorial that is destined to be the focal center of Southwest Florida. This memorial is dedicated to the 58,722 Vietnam veterans who were killed or missing in action, Rouleau said. Our mission is to build it where survivors, families, and friends, can reflect and find closure for their loss. To donate, make checks payable to the Charlotte Community Foundation, P.O.

More broadly, the announcement Monday appeared to be a move by al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahri to reassert the terror networks prominence in the jihad movement across the Middle East amid the mushrooming of extremist groups during the upheaval of the past three years. The dispute is between al-Qaidas central leadership and a faction known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of al-Qaidas branch in Iraq, formed the Islamic State last spring to expand his operations into neighboring Syria, defying direct orders by al-Zawahri not to do so. Al-Zawahri named a different group, the Nusra Front, as al-Qaidas branch in Syria. Now, the break is likely to spark a competition for resources and ghters between the two sides in what has become a civil war within a civil war. Al-Qaida splits with branchBy MAAMOUN YOUSSEF and LEE KEATHASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERSTerror network seeks to reassert jihad prominenceAL-QAIDA | 4 AP FILE PHOTOThis May 22, 2012, photo shows a side mirror warning signal in a Ford Taurus at an automobile testing area in Oxon Hill, Md.WASHINGTON Your car might see a deadly crash coming even if you dont, the government says, indicating it will require automakers to equip new vehicles with technology that lets cars warn each other if theyre plunging toward peril. The action, still some years off, has game-changing potential to cut collisions, deaths and injuries, federal transportation ofcials said at a news conference Monday. A radio signal would continually transmit a vehicles position, heading, speed and other information. Cars and light trucks would receive the same information back from other cars, and a vehicles computer would alert its driver to an impending collision. Alerts could be a ashing message, an audible warning, or a drivers seat that rumbles. Some systems might even automatically brake to avoid an accident if manufacturers choose to include that option. Your car would see when another car or truck equipped with the same technology was about to run a red light, even if that vehicle was hidden around a corner. Your car would also know when a car several vehicles ahead in a line of trafc had made a sudden stop and alert you even before you saw brake lights The technology works up to about 300 yards. If communities choose to invest in the technology, roadways and trafc lights could start talking to cars, too, sending warnings of trafc congestion or road hazards ahead in time for drivers to take a detour.Feds seek car-to-car communicationBy JOAN LOWYASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERSEEK | 4 CHICAGO Could too much sugar be deadly? The biggest study of its kind suggests the answer is yes, at least when it comes to fatal heart problems. It doesnt take all that much extra sugar, hidden in many processed foods, to substantially raise the risk, the researchers found, and most Americans eat more than the safest amount. Having a cinnamon roll with your morning coffee, a super-sized sugary soda at lunch and a scoop of ice cream after dinner would put you in the highest risk category in the study. That means your chance of dying prematurely from heart problems is nearly three times greater than for people who eat only foods with little added sugar. For someone who normally eats 2,000 calories daily, even consuming two 12-ounce cans of soda substantially increases the risk. For most American adults, sodas and other sugary drinks are the main source of added sugar. Lead author Quanhe Yang of the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention called the results sobering and said its the rst nationally representative study to examine the issue. Scientists arent certain exactly how Sugar tied to fatal heart woesBy LINDSEY TANNERAP MEDICAL WRITERSUGAR | 4 LOS ANGELES We eat there, buy our clothes there and some people suspect teenagers may actually live there. So perhaps it was just a matter of time until funeral homes began moving into the local shopping mall. Over the past two years, Forest Lawn has been quietly putting movable kiosks in several of the malls that dot Southern Californias suburbs. The move, by one of the funeral industrys best known operators, expands on a marketing innovation that appears to have begun at the dawn of the decade when a company called Til We Meet Again began opening casket stores around the country. We try to reach our audience where they are at and the mall is a great way to do that, said Ben Sussman, spokesman for Forest Lawn, whose cemeteries count among their permanent residents such notables as Walt Disney, Elizabeth Taylor and Michael Jackson. And its also, perhaps, a way to reach people who might be a little leery about coming directly into one of our parks, Sussman said.Funeral and casket outlets heading to the mallBy JOHN ROGERSASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERCASKET | 4 AP PHOTOSAbove: In this photo taken Thursday, Forest Lawn regional sales manager Hilda Carabes, left, shows Mark Sanchez and his wife the Forest Lawn stand at the Glendale Galleria mall in Glendale, Calif.

Ofcials are working to determine whether the drug was mixed or tainted with anything else. An autopsy was being conducted Monday. Police have been investigating Hoffmans death as an apparent overdose. Law enforcement ofcials said he was found with a needle in his arm. Two ofcials said Monday that at least four dozen small packets were found in the apartment. The ofcials said some packages were stamped with the ace of hearts, others with the ace of spades.Wet, heavy snow falls on East, disrupts travelPHILADELPHIA (AP) A winter storm dumped several inches of wet, heavy snow on parts of the eastern United States on Monday, snarling air and road travel for commuters and Super Bowl fans, cutting power, and closing schools and government ofces. Fat akes began falling during the morning commute Monday and continued falling throughout the afternoon in Philadelphia, creating slushy sidewalks and streets. The Philadelphia and New York areas were expecting about 8 inches, erasing all memory of Sundays weather in the s. In New Jersey, Gov. Chris Christie declared a state of emergency with travel conditions hazardous. Nonessential government employees were dismissed early. Government ofces, courts and schools closed in parts of Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia; scattered power outages were reported throughout the region. By mid-afternoon, the ight-tracking website FlightAware reported more than 3,000 delayed ights and 1,700 canceled ights nationwide in cities including Philadelphia, Newark, N.J., and New York.Police: Michigan escaped prisoner capturedIONIA, Mich. (AP) A convicted killer who peeled a hole in two fences with his hands to escape from a Michigan prison before abducting a woman and eeing to Indiana was captured Monday evening, authorities said. Ofcials were stunned by the brazen escape Sunday night of Michael David Elliot, who had a record of good behavior during his 20 years in custody. He wore a white civilian kitchen uniform to evade security and blend in with snow at the Ionia Correctional Facility in western Michigan, prisons spokesman Russ Marlan said. Indiana State Police Sgt. Ron Galaviz said Elliot was in LaPorte County, Ind. when a sheriffs deputy investigating a vehicle theft tried to make a trafc stop. The suspect ran, but authorities were able to capture him. Fences at the Ionia prison were equipped with motion sensors to alert guards. The fences also carry electric current to shock anyone that touches them. It appears that did not happen. He was not zapped with electricity, and he was not picked up by the motion sensors, Marlan said.Obama seeks to hold Dems together in election yearWASHINGTON (AP) Seeking to preserve party unity in an election year, President Barack Obama is trying to tamp down inter nal Democratic divisions on issues like trade and energy, even as friendly lawmakers show little restraint in publicly breaking with the White House. Obama met Monday with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who has sharply opposed the presidents proposal for letting Congress vote quickly to approve international trade pacts. The president will also meet with House Democrats on Tuesday and Senate Democrats on Wednesday, when hes likely to face more pushback on the Keystone XL pipeline and health care. White House ofcials have tried to dismiss the intraparty divisions, saying theyre aware of the election-year pressures driving some Democrats to oppose Obama on high-prole issues.Report: US troop morale higher in AfghanistanWASHINGTON (AP) U.S. soldiers had higher morale and suffered fewer mental health problems in Afghanistan last year as they handed off more duties to Afghans and saw less combat themselves, according to a report released Monday. The Army report was drawn from a battleeld survey and interviews in June and July. It was the ninth time since the practice started in 2003 in Iraq that the service had sent a team of mental health experts to the eld of war to measure soldier mental health and assess available care. The report says rates of soldiers with depression, anxiety and acute stress as well as tendencies toward suicide were lower than in the most recent previous surveys. WASHINGTON (AP) Freed by a recent legal deal with government lawyers, major technology rms released new data Monday on how often they are ordered to turn over customer infor mation for secret national security investigations gures that show that the government collected data on thousands of Americans. The details disclosed by Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, Facebook, LinkedIn and Tumblr provided expanded details from 2012 and 2013 showing how often the government has sought information on the rms customers in counter-terrorism and other intelligence-related probes. The companies provided limited infor mation in the past about government requests for data, but a new agreement reached last week with the Obama administration allowed a broadened, though still circumscribed, set of gures to be made public. Seeking to reassure customers and business partners alarmed by revelations about the governments massive collection of Internet and computer data, the rms stressed details indicating that only small numbers of their customers were targeted by authorities. Still, even those small numbers showed that thousands of Americans were affected by the government requests approved by judges of the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. The data releases by the ve major tech rms offered a mix of dispassionate graphics, reassurances and protests, seeking to alleviate customer concerns about government spying while pressuring national security ofcials about the companies constitutional concerns. The shifting tone in the releases showed the precarious course that major tech rms have had to navigate in recent months, caught between their public commitments to Internet freedom and their enforced roles as data providers to U.S. spy agencies. In a company blog post, Microsoft General Counsel Brad Smith scolded the U.S. and allied governments for failing to renounce the reported mass interception of Internet data carried by communications cables. Top lawyers and executives for major tech rms had previously raised alarms about media reports describing that hacking by U.S. and UK spy agencies and cited them during conversations with U.S. ofcials during President Barack Obamas internal review of planned changes to the governments spying operations. Despite the presidents reform efforts and our ability to publish more information, there has not yet been any public commitment by either the U.S. or other governments to renounce the attempted hacking of Internet companies, Smith said in a Microsoft blog release. Smith added that Microsoft planned to press the government for more on this point, in collaboration with others across our industry.Internet firms release data on NSA requests ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Joan Mondale, who burnished a reputation as Joan of Art for her passionate advocacy for the arts while her husband was vice president and a U.S. ambassador, died Monday. She was 83. Walter Mondale, sons Ted and William and other family members were by her side when she died, the family said in a statement released by their church. The family had announced Sunday that she had gone into hospice care, but declined to discuss her illness. Joan was greatly loved by many. We will miss her dearly, the former vice president said in a written statement. An arts lover and an avid potter, Joan Mondale was given a grand platform to promote the arts when Walter, then a Democratic senator, was elected Jimmy Carters vice president in 1976. Carter named her honorary chairwoman of the Federal Council on the Arts and Humanities, and in that role she frequently traveled to museums, theaters and artist studios on the administrations behalf. She lobbied Congress and states to boost public arts programs and funding. She also showcased the work of prominent artists in the vice presidential residence, including photographer Ansel Adams, sculptor David Smith and painter Georgia OKeeffe. As Carters No. 2, Walter Mondale was seen as a trusted adviser and credited with making the ofce of the vice president more relevant. It was natural that his wife would do the same for her role. Vice presidential aide Al Eisele once said of his boss: It was important to him that Joan not just be the vice presidents wife, but his partner.Former 2nd lady Joan Mondale dies at age 83 TRENTON, N.J. (AP) Gov. Chris Christie on Monday said that his ofce is cooperating with a subpoena from federal authorities investigating whether any laws were broken when lanes near a New Jersey bridge were apparently closed for political retribution. The Republican governor also said in a radio interview as he took questions for the rst time in more than three weeks that he may have heard about the trafc tie-ups in Fort Lee when they were going on last September, but that it didnt register with him as a major issue if he did. He said that a news report several days after the lanes were reopened got his attention and that he asked staffers to look into it. The report indicated that the head of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey did not authorize the closings. Nobody has said I knew about this before it happened, and I think thats the most important question, Christie said in the appearance on his Ask the Governor radio show on Townsquare Media Monday night. It was the rst time Christie took questions since a nearly two-hour news conference Jan. 9, the day after emails were made public showing that at least one of his top aides had a role in a trafc-blocking scheme near the George Washington Bridge. Since then, he has made public appearances but not opened himself to questions, except to schoolchildren in Camden. Meanwhile Monday, Christies campaign sought to exceed New Jerseys election spending cap to pay for lawyers dealing with subpoenas stemming from a political payback scandal. A special legislative investigative committee said Monday it had begun receiving documents it requested in response to 20 subpoenas it issued last month. Its trying to unravel how high up Christies chain of command a lane closing order went in September and whether the operation was meant to punish a Democratic adversary.Christie cooperating with subpoena rrrfrffnt bff rfntbt I get my exercise every morning without going to the gym 294109 EXPO 2014 Tradeshow Business Summit Business CHARLOTTE COUNTY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE The Hottest Business Day in Paradise! rrMeet Hundreds of Business Decision Makers!

The Sun /Tuesday, February 4, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 3 STATE NEWS TALLAHASSEE (AP) Democrat Charlie Crists released a Web ad Monday that says its ridiculous to blame him in his time as governor for Floridas economic downturn and that instead the recession was caused by guys like Rick Scott. The ad is in response to a Republican Party of Florida Web ad released last week that blames Crist for high unemployment rates, a big drop in property values, Florida leading the country in home foreclosures and more. Crist, then a Republican, served as governor from 2007 to 2011, when the states economy took a tumble. During the 30-second ad, Crist looks at the camera and says, Rick Scott is blaming me for the nancial crisis? Thats ridiculous. Heres the truth. The recession wasnt caused by me, or by you. You know who caused it? Greedy Wall Street bankers and corporate takeover artists. In other words, guys like Rick Scott. Just as Crist cant be blamed for Floridas bad economy during an inter national nancial crisis, its also not fair to blame Scott for the same recession. Scott partially built his wealth through corporate mergers and acquisitions. He was also the CEO of the Columbia/HCA hospital chain. Crist makes an indirect reference to Columbia/HCA paying a $1.7 billion settlement for Medicaid fraud. His company committed outright fraud. So when you see his ads, remember it was guys like Rick Scott that crashed our economy, said Crist, who left the Republican Party in 2010, registered as a Democrat in December 2012 and announced he would seek his old job with his new party last November. Scotts campaign said the ad shows Crist is incompetent. He continues to take no responsibility for the economic disaster that occurred under his watch, and pretends that as governor he was helpless to x the situation. Things got so bad he ended up running away but now he wants his job back, said Scott campaign spokesman Matt Moon.Charlie Crist goes on the offensive | STATE NEWS BRIEFSLopez-Cantera sworn in as Fla.s lieutenant govTALLAHASSSEE (AP) Carlos Lopez-Cantera was sworn in Monday as Floridas next lieutenant governor during a small, private ceremony held in the governors ofce. Lopez-Cantera becomes the rst Hispanic and Cuban-American in Florida history to hold the position. He will appear on the ballot with Gov. Rick Scott when Scott runs for re-election this fall. While the job of lieutenant governor is largely ceremonial, Scott said that he expects LopezCantera to help him push his agenda during the annual session of the Florida Legislature. Hes going to be a great partner, were going to have a great year running together, Scott said. Lopez-Cantera, 40, is a former state legislator and ally of U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio who had been holding the elected position of Miami-Dade Property Appraiser.Ga. asks Supreme Court to reject Fla. water suitSAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) Attorneys for the state of Georgia have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to stay out of the latest legal battle in its 24-year ght over water rights with neighboring Florida. Georgia led its response last week to Floridas request for the high court to intervene in deciding how they share water that ows across the state line where the Chattahoochee and Flint rivers merge to form the Apalachicola River. Florida ofcials said in an October complaint their state needs immediate relief as growing water consumption by metro Atlanta threatens Floridas oyster shery. Florida has brought its case against the wrong party, in the wrong court, and at the wrong time, the Georgia lawyers wrote in their legal response. The river system at the heart of the dispute serves Georgia, Florida and Alabama. The three states have been embroiled in legal battles since 1990 over how to share the water supply. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in 2011 ordered the Army Corps of Engineers, which uses dams to control ows in the river system, to work on a new water allocation plan for the region.Woman, 81, jailed, charged with feeding bearsSEBRING (AP) An 81-year-old Sebring woman has been arrested after authorities say she continued to feed wildlife in violation of a probation order, then fought with a state agent and deputy sheriff as they took her into custody. The News Sun reports that Mary H. Musselman was arrested Wednesday after the agent found trays with bird seed and corn in Musselmans yard. Musselman was put on probation two weeks ago after being charged with two counts of feeding black bears. A Highlands County judge had ordered her not to put out any food to feed bears or other wildlife for a year. In November of last year, FWC ofcials reported they euthanized a bear after it was fed by Musselman.Jury to be sequestered in loud music killing trialJACKSONVILLE (AP) Journalists are objecting to an order requiring reporters to be out of the courtroom during jury selection in the trial of a software developer charged with fatally shooting a 17-year-old teen that authorities say happened after an argument over loud music. An attorney for The Florida Times-Union and First Coast News on Monday told the judge presiding over the case that reporters must be allowed in the courtroom during selection. Under the current plan, reporters can listen to an audio feed in another courtroom. The judge says its an effort to protect potential jurors identities. The judge on Monday also said jurors will be sequestered during the rst-degree murder trial. Michael Dunn is charged with shooting Jordan Davis outside a Jacksonville store in November 2012.Abandoned infant doing well in DCF custodyDEBARY (AP) A baby girl left at a central Florida re station is doing well in state custody. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported the 6-week-old girl is in good health after an ordeal that began Dec. 16. She was supposed to be left at a DeBary Fire station because her mother didnt want her. Instead, she was rescued by newspaper carrier Anthony Ackeridge. The story began in the early morning hours when 53-year-old man agged down the newspaper carrier, saying hed found a newborn baby outside a convenience store. The man had wrapped the child in his shirt. The carrier called 911 and a Volusia County Sheriffs deputy arrived. The man whod found the baby was questioned and his story quickly unraveled. Deputies learned he was dating the babys mother, but was not the childs father. He told deputies that the girls mother didnt want her and had asked him to leave her at a re station, as allowed under Floridas Safe Haven law.Justice Alito: Court cant worry about popularityWEST PALM BEACH (AP) The U.S. Supreme Court should never concern itself with popularity and must remain above the fray when there is strong public reaction to its rulings, Justice Samuel Alito said Monday in a luncheon speech. Its ne if we are not all that popular, Alito told an audience of more than 1,100 lawyers and business people. There is a reason why the Constitution gives federal judges life tenure. We are supposed to do our jobs without worrying whether our decisions are pleasing to anybody. Alito spoke to a joint meeting of the Forum Club of the Palm Beaches and the Palm Beach County Bar Association, drawing the largest audience ever for such an event, organizers said. His staff did not permit the speech to be videotaped or audio recorded, and Alito noted that the justices remain somewhat behind the times in terms of using such common technologies as email. The court also does not permit oral arguments to be televised, although some are released later on audiotape. PENSACOLA (AP) A Florida crime lab employee resigned Monday during an investigation into missing drug evidence that authorities say could compromise hundreds of cases. Department ofcials did not identify the employee. When The Associated Press asked for the suspects resignation letter, they released a copy of a letter from an employee named Joseph Graves. No one responded to a message left at a telephone number listed for that name, and no one answered a knock on the door of a house located at an address registered to that name. The State Attorneys Ofce identied his lawyer as Michael Grifth, who declined to comment when contacted by telephone. The chemist under investigation is suspected of substituting non-prescription drugs for prescription painkillers, Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey said over the weekend. The agency is now reviewing 2,600 cases the suspected employee handled involving 80 law enforcement agencies in 35 counties, said Bill Eddins, state attorney for the district that includes Pensacola. The employee has not been formally charged but probably will be later this week, Eddins said. We will be conducting a thorough investigation to see if each and every case was handled proper ly, he said. Authorities say it is unclear whether the employee was stealing pills for personal use, to sell them, or both. Both prosecutors and defense attorneys said Monday that the alleged theft could create massive problems for courts and law enforcement agencies throughout Florida and could result in some convictions being thrown out and sentences reduced. Some said that it even could taint cases from the department not directly involving the employee. Attorneys said the contaminated evidence could cause big problems for Floridas already overburdened courts. Jamie Benjamin of Fort Lauderdale, president of the Florida Association of Criminal defense lawyers, said investigators need to log crime scene evidence every step of the way and attest that it has not been tampered with. This is just the biggest hole that could possibly happen in the integrity of the forensic evidence needed to establish a drug case, Benjamin said.Lab worker investigated over missing drugsLOCAL EFFECTSFor more information on how this investigation may affect local cases, see the front page of the Sun.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Two Iowa couples decided to tie the knot at this weekends bacon festival at the state fairgrounds in Des Moines. Tricia Snider and Tom Watson were the rst to wed Saturday at the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival, the Des Moines Register reported. Craig and April Rouch got married a short while later. Watson and Snider say they gured the bacon festival was the perfect location to exchange vows because they enjoy bacon together every weekend. The 47-year-old Watson said his 41-yearold bride is nearly the No. 1 love in his life. Shes second only to bacon, Watson said. The chapel where the couple married had a wall full of windows that looked out over an arena full of vendors selling bacon-lled foods. They exchanged vows about staying together in good times and bacon, but for the most part they kept their ceremony traditional. Afterward, a cake topped with a bacon-strip bride and groom awaited the couple and their guests.ODD NEWS Romance sizzles at bacon fest as 2 couples marry sugar may contribute to deadly heart problems, but it has been shown to increase blood pressure and levels of unhealthy cholesterol and triglycerides; and also may increase signs of inammation linked with heart disease, said Rachel Johnson, head of the American Heart Associations nutrition committee and a University of Vermont nutrition professor. Yang and colleagues analyzed national health surveys between 1988 and 2010 that included questions about peoples diets. The authors used national death data to calculate risks of dying during 15 years of follow-up. Overall, more than 30,000 American adults aged 44 on average were involved. Previous studies have linked diets high in sugar with increased risks for non-fatal heart problems, and with obesity, which can also lead to heart trouble. But in the new study, obesity didnt explain the link between sugary diets and death. That link was found even in normal-weight people who ate lots of added sugar. Too much sugar does not just make us fat; it can also make us sick, said Laura Schmidt, a health policy specialist at the University of California, San Francisco. She wrote an editorial accompanying the study in Mondays JAMA Internal Medicine. The researchers focused on sugar added to processed foods or drinks, or sprinkled in coffee or cereal. Even foods that dont taste sweet have added sugar, including many brands of packaged bread, tomato sauce and salad dressing. Naturally occurring sugar, in fruit and some other foods, wasnt counted. Most health experts agree that too much sugar isnt healthy, but there is no universal consensus on how much is too much. U.S government dietary guidelines issued in 2010 say empty calories including those from added sugars should account for no more than 15 percent of total daily calories. The average number of daily calories from added sugar among U.S. adults was about 15 percent toward the end of the study, slightly lower than in previous years.SUGARFROM PAGE 1WASHINGTON (AP) Cuts to food stamps, continued subsidies to farmers and victories for animal rights advocates. The massive, ve-year farm bill heading toward nal passage this week has broad implications for just about every American, from the foods we eat to what we pay for them. Support for farmers through the subsidies included in the legislation helps determine the price of food and what is available. And money for food stamps helps the neediest Americans who might otherwise go hungry. The House already has passed the bipartisan measure and the Senate was scheduled to pass the bill Tuesday after the chamber voted to move forward on the legislation Monday evening. Five things you should know about the farm bill:Where the money goesMost of the bills almost $100 billiona-year price tag goes to the nations food stamp program, now known as SNAP, or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. One in seven Americans, or about 47 million people, participates in the program. The legislation cuts food stamps by about $800 million, or 1 percent, by cracking down on states that seek to boost individual food stamp benets by giving people small amounts of federal heating assistance that they dont need.Subsidies maintainedFarmers will continue to receive generous federal subsidies that help them stay in business in an unpredictable environment, but through revamped programs. The bill eliminates a xed $4.5 billion-a-year subsidy called direct payments, which are paid to farmers whether they farm or not. New subsidies would require farmers to incur losses before they could collect from the federal government. The bill would also overhaul dairy and cotton subsidies and transition them into similar insurance-style programs. Most farmers would pick between a program that would pay out when revenue dips or another that pays out when prices drop.Crackdown on food stamp fraudThe Agriculture Department has been aggressively tackling food stamp fraud in recent years and the nal farm bill will add to that. It would step up efforts to reduce fraud by retailers who sell food stamps, track SNAP trafcking and ensure that people who have died do not receive benets. The bill would also prohibit lottery winners and convicted murderers and sex offenders from receiving food stamps.Hemp laws relaxedThe bill would allow farmers to grow hemp, marijuanas non-intoxicating cousin, in 10 states as research projects. Those states already allow the growing of hemp, though federal drug law has blocked actual cultivation in most. Hemp is often used in rope but has also been used to make clothing, mulch, foods, creams, soaps and lotions.Victory for animal rights groupsThe No. 1 farm bill priority for animal rights groups was to defeat a House provision that would have blocked an upcoming California law requiring all eggs sold in the state to come from hens that live in larger cages. Livestock groups have fought the state law, which will be a major burden for egg producers in other states who use smaller cages and still want to sell eggs to the lucrative California market.5 things to know about the massive farm bill As to why folks would be leery about that, industry ofcials acknowledge the answer is obvious: Who really wants to enter a funeral home even one day before they have to? Funeral planning is something everybody knows they must do, but at the same time its something nobody wants to do, said Robert Fells, executive director of the International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association. Nobody gets up on a Saturday morning and says, Gee, its a nice day. I wonder if I can go out and get myself a burial plot, Fells said. But if theyre strolling past a funeral outlet at the mall, where theyre surrounded by happy, lively people and maybe clutching a bag of Mrs. Fields cookies, the thought is that theyll feel differently. When theyre going to the mall, people are not going out of need, said Nathan Smith, co-founder and CEO of Til We Meet Again, which has outlets in malls in Arizona, Louisiana, Kansas, Indiana and Texas. So if they do happen to see a place peddling cofns or urns while theyre pricing T-shirts and hoodies, Smith said, it will look far less intimidating. Forest Lawns effort began modestly, with just one kiosk (one of those movable things that usually sell stuff like calendars or ties) in a mall in the Los Angeles suburb of Eagle Rock. When no one was creeped out, the program expanded to about a half-dozen malls. Now Forest Lawn periodically shufes them from one mall to another to reach the largest audience. Unlike the people at other such stations, who can seem like carnival barkers as they walk right up to you and hawk discount calling plans or free yogurt samples, Forest Lawns operators are more discreet. At the entrance to a Macys department in the LA suburb of Arcadia last year, operators were quick to smile and hand out brochures when approached. But they kept their distance until people came to them. It was the same at a mall in Glendale last week, where people stopped to examine cremation urns ranging from one with a subdued design of leaves to another that brightly featured the logo for the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team.CASKETFROM PAGE 1 The technology is separate from automated safety features using sensors and radar that are already being built into some high-end vehicles today and which are seen as the basis for future self-driving cars. But government and industry ofcials see the two technologies as compatible. If continuous conversations between cars make driving safer, then self-driving cars will become safer as well. The National Highway Trafc Safety Administration, which has been working with automakers on the technology for the past decade, estimates vehicle-to-vehicle communications could prevent up to 80 percent of accidents that dont involve drunken drivers or mechanical failure. Crashes involving a driver with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher accounted for nearly a third of the 33,500 trafc fatalities in the U.S. in 2012, according to the safety agency. The technology represents the start of a new era in automotive safety in which the focus is to prevent crashes in the rst place, as compared with previous efforts to ensure accidents are survivable, said David Friedman, the head of the agency. No orders to automakers are imminent, ofcials said. After an agency report, the public and carmakers will have 90 days to comment, then regulators will begin drafting a proposal, and that process could take months to years. But Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said it is his intention to issue the proposal before President Barack Obama leaves ofce. It will change driving as we know it over time, said Scott Belcher, president and CEO of the Intelligent Transportation Society of America. Automobile makers will rethink how they design and construct cars because they will no longer be constructing cars to survive a crash, but building them to avoid a crash. Government ofcials declined to give an estimate for how much the technology would increase the price of a new car, but the transportation society estimates it would cost about $100 to $200 per vehicle.SEEKFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOTransportation Secretary Anthony Foxx listens at right as National Highway Trac Safety Administration Administration (NHTSA) Acting Administrator David Friedman, center, speaks about the Transportation Departments decision on vehicle-to-vehicle communication technology, Monday. The test for al-Zawahris inuence will be whether his decision leads ghters to quit the Islamic State. In Washington, which has viewed the increasing inuence of Islamic extremism in Syrias rebel movement with unease, State Department spokesman Jen Psaki noted that both the Islamic State and the Nusra Front are considered terrorist organizations. As for al-Qaidas attempt to distance itself from the Islamic State, she said: Theres no way for me to evaluate what it will mean in the months ahead. In a conict that has seen atrocities by all sides, the Islamic State has been particularly vicious. It is believed to be dominated by thousands of non-Syrian jihadi ghters, and is seen by others in the rebellion as more concerned with venting sectarian hatreds and creating a transnational Islamic caliphate than with toppling Assad. Since its creation, it has taken over swaths of territory in Syria, often imposing severe Shariah law penalties. Its ghters have beheaded captured government ghters, carried out some of the deadliest massacres against pro-Assad minorities and kidnapped anti-Assad activists, journalists and civilians seen as critical of its rule. It has increasingly clashed with other factions, particularly an umbrella group of Syrian rebels called the Islamic Front, which accuses it of trying to hijack the campaign to oust Assad. Even the groups name, Islamic State of Iraq and Levant, was seen as a declaration that the group was the only real Islamic movement in the country. Those frictions erupted into outright warfare in January. Since Jan. 3, more than 1,700 people have been killed in ghting between Islamic State and other factions, according to the Londonbased Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.ALQAIDAFROM PAGE 1 JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) Republican gover nors and lawmakers who now control a majority of state capitols have been pushing aggressively to cut spending and shrink government with one glaring exception. Many are pumping new money into preschool programs at a rate equaling or even exceeding the Democratic-dominated capitols stereotypically cast as big spenders. The push reects a conclusion among conservatives that one part of the social safety net deserves more government help, not less. If it continues, the move could be a step toward creation of a new educational entitlement at a time when both parties are concerned about the costs of the current programs, such as Medicare and Social Security. For the GOP, the spending could have political consequences. Research indicates that preschool help appeals to blue-collar voters who are important to broadening the partys base of support.GOP pushing for preschool funding aaaaaQOo418 cU I g9DU lSIVtNIGLE

My broker has recommended that I put some of this money in Puerto Rican tax-free bonds that yield more than 10 per cent, as well as taxable bonds from several South American countries and from various other foreign countries with even higher yields. I can afford a moderate amount of risk, but Id appreciate your looking over the enclosed list and helping me pick out some issues you think are the safest in the bunch. And if you have any other suggestions on how to get better than 10 percent safely, Id appreciate your recommendations, too. RP, Rochester, Minn. Dear RP: Are you that desperate? I dont speak Balochistanian, Venezuelan, Swahili, Sinaloan, Kashmiri, Elbonian or Kosovan. And though those governments ofcials will be enriching themselves at the public trough for decades to come, I doubt their bonds will survive that long. The Venezuelan bonds, maturing in 2033 and yielding 29 percent, should make a few more interest payments before they default. Then Im certain as rain that in the following few years, American bondholders (including major U.S. banks and large mutual funds) will demand the U.S. government conscate Venezuelan assets to reimburse them for their inevitable investment losses. The only names on that list with better than a 50/50 chance of survival are the Puerto Rican municipals. There are two reasons: an enormous U.S. business presence in Puerto Rico and the Obama administrations belief that Puerto Rico is a strong candidate for statehood. Though I dont object to a speculative $10,000 investment in this Puerto Rican junque, I suggest you purchase it through one of the large discount brokerages or a rm that trades on the New York Stock Exchange. This outt youre working with is a schlock house with bond markups that are big enough to choke a python. Meanwhile, burn that list. To improve the survivability of your speculative bond portfolio, I suggest that you invest only in maturity bonds that will come due in less than four years. Keeping short maturity dates is how many highyield junk bond mutual funds have been able to post double-digit returns in the past couple of years. The following list of short-maturity issues will give you an idea of what to look for: Dendreon 2.875 per cent (not rated) bonds, maturing in January 2016, trade at $660 per $1,000, with a 25 percent yield to maturity. Dendreon (DNDN-$2.99) is a $300 million-revenue biotech company with no earnings, a negative book value and a negative cash ow. It has been public since 1992. J.C. Penney 6.75 per cent bonds, maturing in October 2015 and rated CCC-, trade at $910 per $1,000 face value and have a 12 percent yield to maturity. J.C. Penney (JCP$8.80), a $12 billion-revenue retailer, has an $8.70 book value and a negative cash ow, and it may not be protable for a while. Harrahs 10.75 percent bonds, maturing in February 2016 and rated CCC-, trade at $810 per $1,000 face value and have a yield to maturity of 22.04 percent. Harrahs, a privately held company, has well-known moneylosing casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City. Global Geophysical Services (GGS-$1.61) is an unprotable $300 million-revenue provider of seismic solutions to the oil and gas industry. The 10.5 percent bonds, rated B-, mature in May 2017, trade at $781 per $1,000 face and have a 20.02 per cent yield to maturity. GGS has a $1.62 book value and a $78 million cash ow. Toys R Us is a privately held, barely protable retailer. Its 10.375 percent bonds, maturing in August 2017, trade at $819 per $1,000 face value. They are rated CCC and yield 16.2 percent to maturity. All those bonds have an innitely better chance of survival than those long-maturity foreign issues. They are just a few names of the many publicly traded short-term junk bonds. If your broker doesnt have a ready list, he can locate hundreds of issues by perusing the portfolios of the many junk bond funds that own those and similar issues. If he doesnt have the wherewithal to do that, his rms bond department probably has a ready list of high-yield short-term bonds from which he should be able to give you some recommendations.

U.S. stocks tumbled on Monday, pushing the Dow Jones industrial average down more than 320 points after reports of sluggish U.S. growth added to investor worries about the global economy. The slump follows the Dows worst January performance since 2009. The market stumbled from the get-go, with U.S. markets opening lower after declines in European and Japanese indexes. Then it quickly turned into a slide as a spate of discouraging economic data on everything from manufacturing to auto sales to construction spending poured in. By late afternoon, the sell-off accelerated further, bringing the Dow down more than 7 percent for the year. The S&P 500 index was down more than 5 percent on the year. Some stock watchers took the markets decline in stride. They considered it a necessary recalibration following the markets record highs at the end of last year. Its a bit painful for investors to see the equities markets drop as they have, but this is healthy for this market, said Chris Gaffney, a senior market strategist at EverBank. Weve been almost 2 12 years without a 10 percent correction. So were still in that healthy correction, if you will. All told, the Dow tumbled 326.05 points, or 2.1 percent, to 15,372.80. It fell as much as 342 points earlier in the afternoon. The Standard & Poors 500 index lost 40.70 points, or 2.3 percent, to 1,741.89. The Nasdaq composite dropped 106.92 points, or 2.6 percent, to 3,996.96.Stocks extend slide WASHINGTON (AP) Janet Yellen ofcially took over the leadership of the Federal Reserve on Monday and along with it a delicate task: Unwinding the Feds extraordinary economic stimulus without spooking investors or slowing a still-subpar economy. Yellen, the rst woman to lead the Fed in its 100 years, was sworn in during a brief ceremony in the central banks board room. She succeeded Ben Bernanke, who stepped down last week after eight momentous years. Bernanke is joining the Brookings Institution, a Washington think tank, where he will be a distinguished fellow in residence, Brookings announced Monday. The economy Yellen inherits is far stronger than the one Bernanke faced in the fall of 2008, when the worst nancial crisis since the 1930s erupted. Bernanke spent the rest of his tenure launching and managing an array of programs that are widely credited with helping restore lending and strengthen the nancial system and economy after the Great Recession. Yellen, 67, who served as vice chair under Bernanke, is taking over just as the Fed has begun its rst modest moves to scale back its enormous support for the economy. At a meeting last week, the last under Bernankes leadership, the Fed approved a second $10 billion reduction in its monthly bond purchases to $65 billion.Yellen sworn in as Fed chair AP PHOTOJanet Yellen reacts to applause by sta members after she was sworn in as Federal Reserve Board chair, Monday, at the Federal Reserve in Washington.

His father played a key role in freeing those students before police stormed the classroom and took his son into custody, the city police chief said. The student gunman also seriously wounded a second police ofcer who had responded to an alarm from the school, investigators said. None of the approximately 400 children in School No. 263 at the time were hurt, said Karina Sabitova, a police spokeswoman. But students were so fearful that some ran from the building with their teachers without stopping to put on coats in below-freezing temperatures. The school in northeast Moscow is for children in grades one through 11. Such shootings in Russian schools are extremely rare. Any attack on a school, however, unavoidably brings back memories of the Beslan school siege in 2004, when Islamic militants from Russias North Caucasus took about 1,000 people hostage, most of them children. More than 300 hostages were killed when Russian security forces stormed that school.Student kills teacher, policeman in Moscow school | WORLD NEWS BRIEFSSyrian airstrikes kill at least 18 in AleppoBEIRUT (AP) The Syrian government extended its intense aerial campaign against rebel-held areas of the northern city of Aleppo on Monday, conducting a series of airstrikes that killed at least 18 people, including ve children, activists said. President Bashar Assads air force has pounded opposition areas of the divided city since mid-December, reducing apartment blocks to rubble and overwhelming already strapped hospitals and medical clinics with the wounded. On Sunday, government aircraft also targeted areas of east Aleppo under rebel control, killing nearly 40 people. Mondays air raids hit the districts of Hanano, Qadi Askar and Mouwasalat, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. The group said helicopters dropped crude bombs barrels packed with explosives, fuel and scraps of metal on the neighborhoods, causing immense damage.Protesters vow to annul Thai vote, step up ralliesBANGKOK (AP) Antigovernment protesters in Thailand vowed Monday to stage larger rallies in central Bangkok and push ahead with efforts to nullify an election they disrupted, preventing millions of people from voting. Despite fears of violence, voting proceeded peacefully in 90 percent of polling stations Sunday. The protesters forced polling booths to close in Bangkok and southern Thailand, leaving some legislative seats unlled. As a result, a series of special elections are required to complete the balloting, extending the countrys political paralysis for months. Election results will not be announced until all areas have successfully voted. After sabotaging the election process, the protesters and their allies said they will go to court to try to get the polls nullied on several grounds, including that they were not completed in one day.South Africa: Mandelas will worth $4.1 millionJOHANNESBURG (AP) Nelson Mandelas estate, worth roughly $4.1 million, will be shared among his family, members of his staff, schools that he attended and the African National Congress, the movement that fought white rule and now governs South Africa, the wills executors said Monday. Mandelas third wife, Graca Machel, is the main beneciary of the will because their marriage was in community of property and she therefore has the right to half his estate, as long as she claims it within 90 days, said executor Dikgang Moseneke, who is also deputy chief justice of the Constitutional Court. Graca Machels rst husband, President Samora Machel of Mozambique, died in a plane crash in 1986. Mandelas ex-wife, Winnie MadikizelaMandela, was not mentioned in the will.

In a spot for the schools television production program, the Manta Rays coach stood at midcourt and said if he sank a shot back over his head, Lemon Bay would win the district title. Swish. Its a trick shot I do it all the time, Huber said. Everybody says its CGI (special effects), but its not CGI. If its good luck, Ill take it. It isnt special effects, but the Mantas are in great shape to advance to the regional playoffs out of their district tournament, needing only a win at home against DeSoto County tonight to reach their championship game. Thats also the case for every team in the area one win and you go on. And every team except DeSoto County gets that game at home. For Lemon Bay, whose nearest district opponent in DeSoto County is one hour away (according to Google Maps), thats a huge edge. One of our goals was to get a home game (in the district tournament), Huber said. If it was an away game, it would have been hours away. On a weekday, with one day of preparation, its easier to play at home. The home crowd can be a determining factor they were a big reason got the win against DeSoto County the rst time. They were really loud and the players fed off the crowd and played pretty well.

Page 6 ST. PETERSBURG Tampa Bay right-hander Jeremy Hellickson had arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow last week and is expected to be out until midto late-May, the Times has learned. Hellickson, who last month settled his arbitration case for $3.65-million, had loose bodies removed from his elbow by Dr. Koco Eaton in what is considered a minor procedure and is likely to miss the rst 6-8 weeks of the season. Hellickson, 26, had the surgery on Wednesday and will return to Florida and report to spring training next week as scheduled. Hellickson said he felt only occasional slight discomfort when he started throwing in his native Iowa in December, but it grew worse to the point where he couldnt straighten his arm and felt it was locked up during a bullpen session on Jan. 19. Everything was going good, Hellickson said Monday. I think right at the beginning of my throwing program I felt just a little discomfort, but nothing too bad, so I just kept throwing. Itd feel good for a week and then it would go back to feeling irritated and not comfortable Then I just kind of wanted to wait until I got on the mound to see how it felt. I threw my rst bullpen and it felt good, then I got on the mound three days later and I couldnt even really straighten out my arm, it was kind of locked up. I threw about 10-15 pitches that bullpen, and came away with, it just didnt feel good at all, not comfortable. The Rays had him come to St. Petersburg, and Eaton did the surgery last week.

The best name might belong to the American champion, Gracie Gold. It certainly will be the most memorable if she can match her moniker by standing atop the podium in a few weeks. Gold won her rst national championship in January in Boston with two superb programs. Working with Frank Carroll, who coached Evan Lysacek to the mens title four years ago, Gold has improved exponentially this season. She will need to continue that rapid growth at the games, because defending champion Kim and silver medalist Asada are imposing opponents. There are so many different variables, and the womens eld is so good this year, the 18-year-old Gold said. Yuna Kim and Asada and then all the new kids on the block. I think the U.S. denitely has a strong team for the team event, denitely a chance to medal, if not win. I denitely think in singles I have a chance to medal; so do a lot of people. Who is going to leave every thing out on the ice? The Olympics is about, This is what I have, go ahead and beat it. Gold gave everything she had at the national championships in edging 15-yearold Polina Edmunds and 2010 Olympic fourth-place nisher Mirai Nagasu.

Now that the rst New York/New Jersey Super Bowl was a smashing success for everyone except the Denver Broncos and their fans, NFL owners in other cold-weather cities are sure to be lining up to try to bring the Big Game to their stadiums. Philadelphia, Washington, Chicago, New England and Denver are among the places that can make a case to host it. The next three Super Bowls are set for Glendale, Ariz. (2015), Santa Clara, Calif. (2016), and Houston (2017), and the 2018 eld has been narrowed to a domed home in Indianapolis, Minneapolis or New Orleans. So, the next chance for an outdoor Super Bowl in a cold climate is 2019. Then again, it doesnt necessarily mean it will be cold. It was, after all, 49 degrees in northern New Jersey when the Super Bowl kicked off Sunday night. Meanwhile, the temperature reached 54 degrees in Philadelphia on Super Sunday, 62 in Landover, Md., and 51 in Foxborough, Mass. Philly would be a great place to host it. It has everything, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said last week. All the infrastructure, fourth largest city in the country, state of the art stadium and great fan base. Get in line, Jeff.

The Universal Gymnastics Academys boys team nearly turned in a championship performance Friday. The boys nished second in the Dolphin Gymnastics Classic in Kissimmee, missing rst by 0.4 points. Theyre working really hard, second-year coach Dave DiNucci said of the Port Charlotte team. Im very proud of them. It was a lot of discipline and hard work to achieve those scores. The week prior to, we did not have a good meet, he said. They werent focused. We only had very limited practice time (Monday and Thursday) to get ready for the Dolphin Classic. They were focused, and they stepped up. Sixty-seven boys at level 4 competed in eight age divisions Friday. Fourth-grader Jack Conte, who was rst all-around in the 9-10 A category, was sixth over all, according to DiNucci. Conte had a personal best score of 61.70 and placed rst in the pommel horse, vault, parallel bars and high bars. Chris Conte, Jacks father, said experience is helping his 9-year-old polish his routines. The youngster knows he has to be cleaner with his moves to avoid deductions and knows about moves that earn bonus points. For example, doing a plank the horizontal hold on the rings earns bonus points. (Before) he was going through it and not under standing how he won, Chris Conte said. Tony Baez was sixth all-around in the 9-10 A division, beating his score at the previous meet by nearly three points. He won the oor exercise. AJ Donza and Luc Buettner placed second and third all-around, respectively, in the age 7-8 D division. Buettner was rst in the vault. Luc is a sleeper, DiNucci said. Im hoping to awaken that giant within him. Once that happens, well see. Hes one of our cleanest technical kids. Dennis Moledetsky and Jackson Council were fth and sixth all-around, respectively, in the age 9-10 B group. Moledetskys 57.70 all-around score was a personal best. Moledetsky missed some training during the summer. Gymnastics is an interesting sport, DiNucci said. You have to maintain every single skill you acquired prior to the new ones. Hes starting to come back into form now. Council improved on his all-around score from the week before, when he was fth all-around in his age group. The boys compete next in the Presidential Classic later this month.Share an accomplishment with Barbara Boxleitner at BKLE3@aol.com.Gymnastics team lands 2nd in meetBy BARBARA BOXLEITNERSUN CORRESPONDENT RECREATIONAL SPORTS | COMMUNITY CALENDARTHURSDAYCharlotte Warriors football: Pop Warner registration 6-8 p.m., for August-December season, Charlotte Field, 2610 Carmalita St., Punta Gorda.

NBA: Miami 102, Detroit 96LeBron, Heat slam PistonsMIAMI LeBron James came within two rebounds of his rst triple-double this season, and the Miami Heat won for the fth time in six games Monday by beating the Detroit Pistons 102-96. James had 24 points and 11 assists, Dwyane Wade scored 30 points and Chris Bosh added 17. Wade had one of his best performances in an injury-hampered season, shooting 13 for 19 and adding 10 rebounds and ve assists in 37 minutes. His point total was his highest since Dec. 18. James was blanked in the rebound department down the stretch. When Wade snatched a rebound away from him with 4 minutes left, a grinning James chided him as they ran upcourt. Wade waved his arms in sheepish apology. Teammate Ray Allen outfought James for a rebound a minute later, which left James mutter ing to the Heat bench. James also tweaked his left shoulder and right hand, and was called for committing a foul with his face when he became entangled with Greg Monroe. Allens buzzer-beating 3-pointer put the Heat up 84-80 after three periods, and they pulled away from there. Wades 3-pointer put them ahead by 13 points for the rst time, 98-85. Brandon Jennings had 26 points and seven assists for the Pistons, who trailed almost the entire game and took it badly. They were called for four technical fouls. Monroe had 17 points and 11 rebounds. Detroit lost despite forcing 20 turnovers and holding an edge of 51-44 in rebounds. The Heat, who began the week three games behind Eastern Conference leader Indiana, started strong and scored 13 points before they missed a shot. From 41-all, James and Wade teamed up for back-to-back fast-break baskets. The second came when Wade fed Mario Chalmers, whose alley-oop over the hoop perfectly led an airborne James for a one-handed throw-down dunk. Will Bynums fourpoint play put the Pistons up 48-47, but that was their last lead. Miami went on a 14-2 run near the end of the half and led 63-57 at halftime.HEAT 102, PISTONS 96DETROIT (96) Smith 5-20 1-1 12, Monroe 6-13 5-7 17, Drummond 5-6 2-4 12, Jennings 7-15 1012 26, Caldwell-Pope 0-1 0-0 0, Singler 1-5 0-0 2, Stuckey 8-17 2-3 20, Jerebko 1-4 0-0 2, Bynum 1-2 2-2 5.

NBA ROUNDUPPacers make quick work of Magic INDIANAPOLIS Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel kept the game plan simple. Make the extra pass, take care of the ball, play defense and get more out of his bench. The four-pronged approach worked. Danny Granger scored a season-high 16 points, Paul George and Lance Stephenson each added 15, and the Pacers plowed through some rough stretches to pull away from the Orlando Magic, 98-79 on Monday night. I thought we came out with the right focus and the right ght, forward David West said. We played hard, played together and got the W. The team with the NBAs best record came into the game with a 3-3 mark over its last six and seemed to be sliding after a series of slow starts forced it to ght its way back from large, early decits. Even returning home after a ve-game West Coast swing wasnt the x. The Pacers (37-10) lost to Phoenix last Thursday, then had to overcome a season-high 24 turnovers Saturday to barely get past Brooklyn. On Monday, the Pacers looked like a different team.

The Sun /Tuesday, February 4, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 SPRING TRAINING COUNTDOWN10Days until Tampa Bay Rays pitchers and catchers report for spring training on Feb. 14 at Charlotte Sports Parkcouple loose bodies that I guess were oating around in there, just removed them, Hellickson said. Hellickson said he didnt think the elbow condition was an issue in his disappointing 2013, when he went 12-10 with a 5.17 ERA. He said he felt only what he considered normal wear and tear, normal tightness then, and that it felt similar when he started throwing in December. The irritation that I felt on that second bullpen wasnt anything compared to what I felt last year it was far worse than anything I felt last year, he said. Hellickson said the injury is even more frustrating because of how driven he was to make up for last season. I was absolutely looking forward to getting back out there this year, he said. I guess a lot of people where doubting me toward the end of last year so I was motivated to get back out there and do what I know I can do. So it denitely sucks. Its frustrating to have to go through this and miss hopefully just a month, month and a half. Hellickson, who has had no previous sur geries, said he was told the rehab process can take 6-10 weeks, so he is hoping to be on the short end of that and then start working his way back into game form to return to the rotation. The beginning of May is what Im shooting for, he said. Anything before that is good. Hopefully Im out there sooner rather than later.ELBOWFROM PAGE 1 | RAYS SPRING TRAINING SCHEDULEDate Game Time Feb. 28 Orioles at Rays, 1:05 p.m. March 1 Rays at Pirates, 1:05 p.m. March 2 Twins at Rays, 1:05 p.m. March 3 Phillies at Rays, 1:05 p.m. March 4 Rays at Red Sox, 1:05 p.m. March 5 Yankees at Rays, 1:05 p.m. March 6 Rays at Orioles, 1:05 p.m. March 7 Rays at Blue Jays, 1:05 p.m. March 8 Pirates at Rays, 1:05 p.m. March 9 Rays at Yankees, 1:05 p.m. March 10 Rays at Red Sox, 1:05 p.m. March 11 Twins at Rays, 1:05 p.m. March 12 Rays at Blue Jays, 1:05 p.m. March 13 Pirates at Rays, 1:05 p.m. March 14 Rays at Braves, 1:05 p.m. March 15 Blue Jays at Rays, 1:05 p.m. Date Game Time March 15 Rays at Pirates, 1:05 p.m. March 16 Red Sox at Rays, 1:05 p.m. March 18 Rays at Twins, 7:05 p.m. March 19 Rays at Orioles, 1:05 p.m. March 20 Twins at Rays, 7:05 p.m. March 21 Blue Jays at Rays, 1:05 p.m. March 22 Orioles at Rays, 1:05 p.m. March 23 Rays at Red Sox, 1:05 p.m. March 24 Rays at Twins, 1:05 p.m. March 25 Red Sox at Rays, 1:05 p.m. March 26 Orioles at Rays, 7:05 p.m. March 27 Rays at Orioles, 7:05 p.m. March 28 Rays at Tigers, 1:05 p.m. March 29 Rays at Montgomery (Ala), 3:05 p.m. MONTGOMERY, Ala. The Southeastern Conference is still reigning supreme on the recruiting trail. Florida State ended the leagues seven-year stranglehold on the national title, but Alabama, Texas A&M, LSU & Co. have been racking up wins in the living rooms of top prospects from across the country. The Crimson Tide is poised to bring in another top-rated recruiting class on Wednesdays national signing day. Six SEC rivals also have built top 10 classes, according to the 247Sports composite rankings of the major recruiting sites. Its kind of a rich get richer kind of thing, said JC Shurburtt, national recruiting director for 247Sports. Based on the rankings, the SEC is cleaning up. ESPN.com has four SEC classes ranked in the top 5: No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Texas A&M, No. 4 LSU and No. 5 Tennessee. ESPN national recruiting director Tom Luginbill thinks the Pac-12 stands the best chance of closing the gap on the SEC on Wednesday. Six of ESPN.coms eight highest rated prospects, and 25 of the top 50, have signed or committed to SEC teams. Five of the 15 prospects with ve-star ratings are Alabama bound, including offensive tackle Cameron Robinson and defensive end DaShawn Hand. Luginbill calls it a sensational class that might be Nick Sabans best with the Crimson Tide. It may be one of the best classes of offensive line personnel regardless of program and regardless of year, he said. Some things to watch from the SEC on signing day and beyond:TOP AVAILABLESeveral top uncommitted prospects could wind up in the SEC. That includes Gardena, Calif., cornerback Adoree Jackson, who lists Florida, LSU, UCLA and Southern California among his nalists. The top-rated outside linebacker, Auburn (Ala.) High Schools Rashaan Evans, has listed Auburn, Alabama and UCLA as his nal choices. New Orleans ve-star wide receiver Malachi Dupres list includes Alabama, LSU, Florida State and UCLA. Shurburtt thinks Evans is the unattached prospect that could have the biggest immediate impact in the SEC. RUNNING BACKS GALORESEC teams are hoping theyve found future successors to departed star runners like Auburns Tre Mason and LSUs Jeremy Hill. Four of 247Sports composites ve ve-star running backs appear bound for the SEC, including Georgia commits Sony Michel and Nick Chubb. LSU has top overall prospect Leonard Fournette and Auburns biggest offensive pledge is Racean Roc Thomas of Oxford, Ala. Leonard Fournette, hes one of the best running back prospects in 10 years, Shurburtt said. You look at it from that standpoint, the running back talent in the league is already very good, and its just getting better.POSITION LEADERSIf recruiting rankings are like draft boards, where teams rank players overall and at their position, then the SEC has plenty of rst-rounders. Seven SEC pledges are rated the best at their position in the composite rankings out of the 14 spots where the No. 1 guy has committed. Shurburtt said thats sometimes a better gauge than just the number of stars by a players name.The rich are about to get richerBy JOHN ZENORASSOCIATED PRESS COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Signing dayLeading into signing day, SEC reigns supreme in recruiting STAY UP TO DATEFollow us on Twitter for live updates of area commitments throughout the day @SunCoastSports.

Diamondbacks secure manager, GM: Arizona extended the contracts of manager Kirk Gibson and general manager Kevin Towers. Contracts for both had been set to expire after the coming season. The team would not divulge the lengths of the extension or even whether the lengths were the same for both. Mets sign Farnsworth: Reliever Kyle Farnsworth agreed to a minor league contract with the New York Mets and will report as a non-roster player. The 37-year-old right-hander was 3-1 with two saves and a 4.70 ERA in 48 games last year with Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh, which signed him in August after he was released by the Rays. Around the nation: Arizona avoided arbitration with Gerardo Parra by agreeing to a one-year, $4.85 million deal with the two-time Gold Glove outfielder. Right-hander Daniel Bard agreed to a minor league contract with Texas that includes an invitation to big league spring training. Third baseman David Freese and reliever Kevin Jepsen reached arbitration deals with the Los Angeles Angels. Freese will make $5.05 million in his first season with the Angels.

Last week, Donovan made it clear that the 6-foot-10 Walker will not be Kevin Garnett this season. On Monday, the coach insisted Walker will not play like Wilt Chamberlain when he makes his debut tonight against Missouri. But Walker will get on the court for the rst time since arriving on campus in mid-December, which should help the third-ranked Gators (19-2, 8-0 Southeastern) as they near the halfway mark of league play and start getting ready for the postseason. The expectations on him as a player are way, way up here, and he cant reach them, Donovan said. He cant. I just want people to know. This is not going to be a guy that youre going to say, Billy, you really, really downplayed this thing. This guy came out and played like Wilt Chamberlain. Its not going to happen. Hes a good player thats got a lot in front of him, a lot of growing and maturing thats got to go on. I really dont know how much he can do. He can go in there and do some really, really good things and really help our team or he could go out there and really be lost in the game and get going too fast and the emotion of the game will over whelm him.

Page 4 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Tuesday, February 4, 2014 here, we deserve a Super Bowl here, Redskins owner Daniel Snyder said last fall. Its the nations capital, it makes all the sense in the world, Redskins owner Daniel Snyder said last fall. Patriots owners Robert Kraft feels the same. We would love one day to hold it, Kraft said. Im a great supporter of playing this game in all elements. In Chicago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel has already begun lobbying NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on behalf of the Bears. Chicago was the host city for NATOs 2012 summit, an event Emanuel has compared to hosting the Super Bowl. Goodell was noncommittal when asked on Friday about the league choosing another cold-weather venue for its championship game. We know theres interest in other communities hosting the Super Bowl, he said. I think the ownership well all sit back and review that when were done, but we have a very aggressive process in how to select cities. The ability to host a Super Bowl is more and more complicated, more and more complex, because of the size of the event and the number of events. So, the infrastructures incredibly important. Were well over 30,000 hotel rooms needed even to host the Super Bowl. So, theres some communities that may not even be able to do it from an infrastructure standpoint, but we know the passions there. Of course, the Super Bowl is more than just a one-day event. Plenty of time, money and energy are spent on the weeklong activities leading up to the game. New York transformed Times Square into Super Bowl Boulevard, an outdoor street fair that took over the citys busiest thoroughfare. There was a 60-foot-high toboggan slide right in the middle of Manhattan, and more than a million people vis ited the popular tourist spot last week to enjoy all the festivities. Theres been a lot of planning for a lot of months and even years in making this Super Bowl successful, and thats in large part because of the broad metropolitan area that were in, Goodell said. Super Bowl Boulevard is an incredible opportunity for us to share this with our community here in the New York/New Jersey region. Thats what footballs all about. Thats what the Super Bowls all about. So if you want to bring the Big Game to your city, listen up. Round up your civic, business and community groups, form a bid committee and raise plenty of cash to cover the costs because its not cheap. The host New York-New Jersey committee raised $70 million to host the event.CITIESFROM PAGE 1 SUPER BOWL TV BY THE NUMBERS SUPER BOWL: TV ratingsGame scores another record for viewersNEW YORK For the fourth time in ve years, the Super Bowl has set a record for the mostwatched television event in U.S. history, drawing 111.5 million viewers even though the Seattle Seahawks 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos wasnt really competitive. The record is further evidence of how live events are becoming dependable and valuable properties for broadcast television at a time the audience is fragmenting and ratings for regular entertainment shows continue to fall. The game also set standards for the moststreamed sports event online and, with 24.9 million tweets, the biggest U.S. live TV event on Twitter. The Seattle victory eclipsed the 111.3 million viewers who watched the 2012 Super Bowl between the New York Giants and New England Patriots, according to the Nielsen company. Until last years game dipped slightly to 108.7 million, the Super Bowl had set ratings records for the previous three years in a row. We were a little surprised, absolutely, said said Bill Wanger, executive vice president for programming and research at Fox Sports. The blowout had some at Fox worried that enough people would tune out in the fourth quarter to ruin any chance at a ratings record. But initial interest in the game perhaps fueled by its New Yorkarea setting was high enough to overcome the lopsided score. Ratings for the opening kickoff were 12 percent higher than last years game, Fox said. For the New York market, the Super Bowl rating was higher than it was two years ago when the hometown Giants won in dramatic fashion. Fox said an average of 528,000 people watched the live Internet stream of the game, peaking at the end of the third quarter.

NEW YORK Less than 12 hours after winning the Super Bowl, Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll already was talking about getting started on next season. The rst meeting that well have will be tomor row. ... Our guys would be surprised if we didnt, Carroll said Monday morning. We really have an eye on whats coming, and we dont dwell on what just happened. Well take this in stride. He appeared at a news conference at a Manhattan hotel with linebacker Malcolm Smith, the MVP of Seattles 43-8 victory over Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on Sunday night. Carroll oversees a team with the fourth-youngest roster for a Super Bowl champion, with an aver age age of 26 years, 175 days, according to STATS. The youngest champs ever were the Pittsburgh Steelers who won the 1975 Super Bowl. They won a second consecutive title the next year. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson just wrapped up his second season in the league, as did Jermaine Kearse, the receiver who caught one of the QBs two touchdown passes Sunday night. Doug Baldwin, who caught the other, is only three years into his pro career, as are star corner back Richard Sherman and Smith, who at 24 is the fourth-youngest player to be the Super Bowl MVP. Weve seen the effort that it takes to get to this point, and, obviously, well try to replicate that and do it again, Smith said. Were looking forward to the next challenges and guys having a target on their back and people trying to come after us. Smith became the third linebacker to earn Super Bowl MVP honors, thanks to a 69-yard touchdown return off an interception of regular-season MVP Manning in the rst half and a fumble recovery in the second half. Carroll said general manager John Schneider has positioned the Seahawks to be able to avoid the problems that can make it hard to repeat as NFL champions. Since Denver repeated in the 1999 game, only one team has won two Super Bowls in a row, the New England Patriots in 2004-05. Theres the need to replace players who leave via free agency. The need to pay other players with new, better-paying contracts. One of the things that happens every so often is teams have a big fallout after they win the Super Bowl, Carroll said. Were not in that situation. Carroll was reminded during Sundays game of blowout victories in college football bowl games when he was a championship-winning coach at Southern California. It felt like it. It looked like it. The score was like it, he said Monday. Carroll described the lopsided nature of the game as kind of like an avalanche, an interesting choice of words given the hubbub last week over whether the rst outdoor Super Bowl at a cold-weather site would be affected by snow. Instead, the weather wasnt a factor Sunday at the stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., where the temperature was 49 degrees at kickoff and only some light rain fell. On Monday morning, meanwhile, driving snow hit the area and forecasts called for up to 8 inches. I dont know how (NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell) pulled it off, but he pulled off the weather in perfect fashion, Carroll joked. The NFL is powerful. NFL: SeattleSeahawks, of course, think D of titleBy HOWARD FENDRICHASSOCIATED PRESSAP PHOTOSeattles Malcolm Smith, the Super Bowl XLVIII MVP, celebrates with the Vince Lombardi Trophy Sunday in East Rutherford, N.J. REPEAT FEATS Seven teams have repeated as Super Bowl champions, including the Pittsburgh Steelers twice. The teams and years of their consecutive titles: Green Bay Packers 1967-68 Miami Dolphins 1973-74 Pittsburgh Steelers 1975-76 Pittsburgh Steelers 1979-80 San Francisco 49ers 1989-90 Dallas Cowboys 1993-94 Denver Broncos 1998-99 New England Patriots 2004-05 CLEVELAND New Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine has his play caller. Kyle Shanahan was hired as offensive coor dinator Monday after spending the previous four years in the same role with the Washington Redskins. Pettine, hired Jan. 23 to replace Rob Chudzinski, is in his rst job as an NFL head coach. His experience is as a defensive assistant, so he will rely heavily on Shanahan, whos been a coordinator for the last six seasons and has 10 years as an NFL assistant. An experienced coordinator is crucial as Cleveland tries to turn around its fortunes. The Browns, who had four offensive players in the Pro Bowl, are expected to select a quarterback early in Mays draft and Shanahan will have a hand in his development. Shanahan, 34, got his rst job as a coordinator in 2008 when he was hired by Houston at 28 years old. After two seasons there, he joined his father, Mike, head coach of the Washington Redskins. Both Shanahans spent four seasons with Washington before being red Dec. 30 after a 3-13 season. They also clashed with quarterback Robert Grifn III. But Kyle Shanahan brings a strong resume to the Browns. His offenses have ranked in the top 10 in the NFL in yardage four of his six seasons as a coordinator, including the last two in Washington. NFL, transit agency review logjam: The head of New Jerseys transit agency defended the response to delays for thousands of fans leaving the Super Bowl by train, as officials sought to understand how ridership estimates were so far off base. About 33,000 people took the 7-mile ride between MetLife Stadium and the Secaucus rail transfer station, more than double the highest estimates made by organizers and transportation experts before the game. The overcrowding on the platform grew so severe immediately following the game that the stadium scoreboard flashed a sign asking fans to remain inside. I think we did an excellent job moving a lot of people to a major event, New Jersey Transit executive director James Weinstein said Monday. When 82,500 people leave a place at the same time theres going be congestion. There was, and we got through that congestion in what I believe was a realistic time. It would have been nice if we could have done it faster, but we did it as quickly and as efficiently as we could do it. Those words may come as small comfort for those who stood waiting for trains until well after midnight. The game ended around 10 p.m. Heat coach Spoelstra saw Seahawks preview: Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra wasnt surprised by how well the Seattle Seahawks played in the Super Bowl, because he witnessed a preview in August. Spoelstra was a guest during training camp at Seahawks headquarters, where he sat in on meetings, spoke to the team and watched practice. The speed, the quickness, the power you saw from that team Sunday night, I saw that in training camp, Spoelstra said. My hats off to them. Its not easy to win a championship in any sport. Spoelstra, who has led the Heat to back-to-back NBA titles, said he traded text messages Monday with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and congratulated him for Seattles 43-8 victory over Denver. Around the league: Seattles victory in the Super Bowl cost Houston furniture store mogul Jim McIngvale some $7 million. He promised customers who spent at least $6,000 in the past two weeks and took delivery before Sundays game that hed refund their purchase cost if Seattle won. The San Diego Chargers promoted Nick Sirianni to quarterbacks coach and hired Bobby King as assistant linebackers coach and Shane Steichen as quality control-offense. The Oakland Raiders hired Joe Woods as defensive backs coach and Marcus Robertson as assistant secondary coach, replacing Johnnie Lynn and Clayton Lopez. A group of 17 Omaha companies is donating another $42,500 to Peyton Mannings foundation for at-risk youth even though it was hard to hear him shout about Nebraskas largest city during the Super Bowl.Browns call on ShanahanBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NFL NOTEBOOK Manning millions vanish as newcomer Wilson poised to cash in BLOOMBERG NEWSNEW YORK Quarterback Russell Wilson and his Seattle Seahawks teammates won not only the Super Bowl but, in the part that matters to companies seeking athlete endorsers, the hearts and minds of those watching on television. In the afterglow of their 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos and their platinum endorser, quarterback Peyton Manning, Madison Avenue executives will flock to Wilson, said Bob Dorfman, executive director at San Francisco-based Baker Street Advertising. The win, Dorfman said, will result in at least another $2 million in endorsements, about four times what the second-year player was paid by the Seahawks this season. Small in stature, big in performance, personality, brains, charisma and hair, Russell Wilson has the goods to be a convincing and scandal-free pitchman for years to come, Dorfman said in an email during Sunday nights game at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. The game was a breakthrough for the 5-foot-11 Wilson, who graduated from North Carolina State in three years, completing his degree in broadcasting and communications before transferring to Wisconsin. The 25-year-old Wilson outperformed the 37-year-old Manning, a fourtime NFL Most Valuable Player who pocketed an NFL-best $13 million in endorsement income last year from a portfolio that includes Buick, Reebok, DirecTV and Papa Johns International Inc. Manning was paid about $17.5 million by the Broncos. AP PHOTOPeyton Manning after being tackled in Super Bowl XLVIII. He also could take a hit in endorsements. 44&7 4y.I_-JG KS f

Vela is often considered Mexicos top player, but he hasnt played for the national team since February 2011. He met with coach Miguel Herrera and other Mexican officials to discuss the World Cup, but Herrera said Vela did not show the kind of dedication required to play for the national team. Former Brazil and Lyon midfielder Juninho announced his retirement from football after a 20-year career. The 39-year-old Juninho had been practicing with Brazilian club Vasco da Gama in an attempt to keep playing, but the midfielder said he was struggling too much to recover from a muscle injury sustained late last year.

But as the games drew near, authorities have turned to a company to catch and kill the animals so they dont bother Sochis new visitors or even wander into an Olympic event. Alexei Sorokin, director general of pest control rm Basya Services, told The Associated Press that his company had a contract to exterminate the animals throughout the Olympics. Sorokin described his company as being involved in the catching and disposing of dogs, although he refused to specify how the dogs would be killed or say where they would take the carcasses. The dogs have been causing numerous problems, Sorokin said Monday, including biting children. He said he was stunned last week when he attend ed a rehearsal for the opening ceremony and saw a stray dog walking in on the performers. A dog ran into the Fisht Stadium, we took it away, he said. God forbid something like this happens at the actual opening ceremony. This will be a disgrace for the whole country. A pack of at least a half-dozen healthy-looking dogs roamed around a loading zone of a gondola, 400 meters (1,200 feet) above the Gorki Plaza in the mountain venues for the Olympics as construction work continued late Sunday. Olympic volunteers patted and cooed over strays that trotted into the park Monday. Another dog dropped to the ground, sunbathing under the Olympic Rings near a public site where medals will be presented to athletes. Animal activist Dina Filippova is among the opponents of the latest dog-culling plan, saying city authorities are using the Olympics as an excuse to cover an ongoing practice.By NATALIYA VASILYEVAASSOCIATED PRESSSochis city hall orders thousands killed AP PHOTOStray dogs sit outside the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park course, a venue for the snowboarding and freestyle competitions at the Sochi Olympics. A pest control company that has been killing stray dogs in Sochi for years told The Associated Press on Monday it has a contract to exterminate more of the animals throughout the Winter Games. KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia The slopestyle course that drew complaints from some riders ahead of the Sochi Olympics is set to be modied after Norwegian medal hope Torstein Horgmo broke his collar bone in practice Monday and is out of the Winter Games. The 26-year-old Horgmo landed heavily on his face and right shoulder while attempting a difcult trick on a rail near the top of the course and was taken to the athletes hospital at Krasnaya Polyana, said team manager Thomas Harstad. Medical scans conrmed a fracture. Athletes had expressed concern about the steep jumps at the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park course even before the ofcial practice began Monday, days ahead of the rst qualifying runs Thursday in the mens slopestyle. International ski federation ofcial Roberto Moresi, the assistant snowboard race director at Sochi, said the course wasnt a factor in Horgmos crash, adding it happened because he was just trying a really hard trick. Course designer Anders Forsell said the changes were minor. Riders discussed the course design at a meeting after the rst practice session. Some thought some of the jumps were dangerous, others thought the course was OK. It looks pretty sketchy, Roope Tonteri, the 2013 world champion in mens slopestyle, was quoted as saying. Its not really good for riders, and its not really safe. I just dont want to get injured. Its not a really fun course to ride. Around the rings: NBC is using the Olympics to push interest in technology allowing cable or satellite TV subscribers to see live Winter Olympics competition on mobile phones or tablets. The network said it will give subscribers a 30-minute free pass to Olympics video before they are asked to verify that they are paying customers. On subsequent days, the access will be limited to five minutes before verification. United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will take part in the opening ceremony and deliver a keynote address to the International Olympic Committees general assembly, the first by a U.N. secretary-general, officials said. Mikko Koivu likely will not return to the Minnesota Wild until after the Olympics, leaving his availability for Finland during the Winter Games in question. He broke his right ankle Jan. 4 when he was hit by a puck and had surgery to accelerate the recovery.Slopestyle course gets makeoverBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS OLYMPICS NOTEBOOKAP FILE PHOTO Norways Torstein Horgmo, ying o a jump during the U.S. Grand Prix slopestyle snowboarding nals, on Dec. 22 in Frisco, Colo., was hospitalized after crashing during practice Monday. victory against Sarasota, in which four players scored in double-digits, led by Joe Garzas 19 points. Jon Hill added 15. The Mantas (6-12) will face the Bulldogs (7-8) on one side of the District 5A-11 bracket; top-seed Sebring will play host to Hardee on the other. The Bulldogs play a frenetic style and could cause matchup problems for the Mantas with big men Kari Williams and Reggie Jones. DeSoto County coach Richard Koonce likes the way his team has played of late, giving Port Charlotte problems before the Pirates eventually pulled away to a 63-46 decision. Even in a loss, this is the best game we played this season, Koonce said after the Port Charlotte game. I congratulated them after the game and said were ofcially ready for districts. I couldnt have said that a week ago. Other area teams have a prohibitive edge going into the district tournament. North Port (21-3) enters the District 7A-10 tournament unbeaten in district play, and the same is true for top-seeded Port Charlotte (17-8) in District 6A-11. Meanwhile, Charlotte (14-10) goes into the District 7A-11 tournament having beaten rst-round opponent Gulf Coast twice during the regular season. But Port Charlotte coach Bill Specht said the there isnt any room to be lax from this point forward. Every possession counts, Specht said. Those teams that come into this gym for districts are coming in with a purpose. Theyre not coming in to lay down for us. I dont care what the scores were the rst game, theyre coming with a purpose now.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.comDISTRICTSFROM PAGE 1SUN PHOTO BY JENNIFER BRUNONorth Ports Vic Sinopoli drives against Connor Jenkins of Fort Myers during a game on Jan. 18.

While Wagner reboots, Gold has taken over the spotlight. Unlike the days of Tonya and Nancy and its aftermath, when gure skating was front and center even in non-Olympic years, the sport seldom leaps into the limelight now. But with the Sochi Games about to kick off, people are paying attention to the lutz-and-loop crowd. In the United States, that usually means focusing on the top woman. Although Wagner could wind up being that skater Lysacek didnt win the U.S. championships in 2010 before taking the Vancouver title Gold is in the forefront heading toward the start of the team event. Going to nationals, I was not going to just participate, but to compete, going for the top spot, going for gold, she said. I dedicated myself to that moment and I was able to hit it pretty well, and I am more than happy with that. I think the year is 2014 and its a new Gracie. With Frank every day after I am done jumping, we just take time to appreciate the nuances and the music and connecting with the audience and judges and have that warmth with my skating, the things that light up the rink. Gold has leaped onto the scene the past two years. She and Wagner nished high enough at the 2013 world championships to ensure the American women would have the maximum three spots in the Sochi eld. She didnt do much in the Grand Prix series, but came on spectacularly at nationals. Now, its on to the Olympics.GOLDFROM PAGE 1 OLYMPIC GLANCE: FIGURE SKATINGTHE BASICS In addition to mens and womens singles, pairs and ice dance, the IOC is adding a team competition.
