Blues great B.B. King has said a lot of things about the blues, like, The blues was that problem child that you may have had in the family but you loved him. Luis Rivera Sr. had a problem child who wouldnt go to college like his dad wanted. Rivera was a star chef for 45 years from the Empire State Buildings Riverboat, hangout of Mickey Dolenz of the Monkees, to tropical St. Croix and Puerto Rico, to Tampas Avila Country Club, Columbia, and Malios. And if he could see his kid tackling his vocation today, hed burst with pride. Still, there might be a few things hed adjust. See, he was a perfectionist, just like his oldest boy. Ask Luis Jr., of Punta Gordas Two Brothers, whether hes like his father and his face melts. Then he smiles, wide and warm, as he leans over the table. I am. And it scares me sometimes. Im cooking and my brother will say, I see Dad. I gave the old man a hard time growing up. He tried to straighten me out. But I was unstraightenable, he chortles. A Buddhist monk once gave Luis a personal message that he took to heart: You have tremendous energy and are going to do well in life. People will be drawn to you. So, Lu and younger brother Eddie were having lunch, and Lu started hashing out this restaurant plan, Built by a Local for Locals, on a Ruby Tuesdays napkin. Its hard to say no when Lu urges, You wanna? No? Yes? Lets go! Their location, across from the Charlotte County Justice Center, has been home to so many short-lived eateries that theres talk of a curse. It takes a determined guy to break a curse, but just to be thorough about things, Lu had a Buddhist-leaning buddy give the property his blessing. He and Eddie tore the whole place apart to boot. Their goal? A micro version of Tampas Ybor City, with Latin food and a house of blues, right here in River City. Is this going to be too much for them? Consider this. Lu used to weigh 600 pounds. Its no small feat to lose nearly half your body. Now Papa Chubs gets the pleasure he used to get from food out of taking care of others. No wonder hes got plans for Two Brothers Beatdown a vicarious four-pound orgy of hamburger, bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato, onions, and pickles on Cuban bread with fries and slaw eat in 20 minutes and its free. This man with the cigar also loves music. And if anything can break a curse besides his kind of determination, and a blessing, he knows its the blues. Friday nights the establishment has had as many as 150 people here, bikers boogieing with 75-year-old Punta Gorda gals to national blues recording artists. Always full of ideas, he exclaims, Two Brothers Gone Wild! How bout a mechanical bull? Punta Gordas full-throttle saloon! A big show on the roof, $1 beers, radio stations doing live feeds! Then he settles down, sobered by his one, big, perfectionistic fear not failing as a restaurant, but not being as good as he wants to be. Sue Wade is a local columnist for the Charlotte Sun. You can recommend restaurants and/or bars to her by email to sue.gleasonwade@cengage.com.Food, blues simply best PUNTA GORDA If the U.S. makes the nals in the World Cup, I will be on the next ight to Rio de Janeiro, Jeffery Kuhns said prior to watching the U.S. and Germany matchup at the Ice House Pub in Punta Gorda on Thursday. I actually watched a game at Americana Stadium and saw Brazil play. It was really exciting. Kuhns, an attorney with the McCrory Law Firm in Punta Gorda, will not be going to Rio any time soon after Americas heartbreaking 1-0 loss to Germany. Despite the defeat, the Stars and Stripes will advance to the knockout stage of the tournament after Ghanas 2-1 loss to Portugal, playing either Algeria or Belgium. Soccer fans lled the Ice House on Thursday before the game and talked about the U.S. teams chances against powerhouse Germany. I think its going to be a tight game, Joe Voelker said. Tighter than most people think. Punta Gorda resident Jake Hurley said the U.S. would move on to the knockout round no matter what happened, but he wanted to see a win against Germany anyway. Germany is pretty much guar anteed a trip to the next round no matter what happens here, he said. I think they will keep their starters out of the game. They should be pretty much laid-back. Aaron Bull, visiting from Houston, Texas, said the monsoon-type rain that was hitting the Recife area where the match was played, would prove benecial to the U.S. I believe the weather will play a factor, Bull said. Germany plays a faster game and likes to pass the ball a lot. I think the weather will hurt them more than us. Whatever team can get through that will be victorious. And that team turned out to be Germany. Although both squads demonstrated exceptional defense in the rst half, the Germans dominated with their quick moves and expert ball-handling. The closest the U.S. came to scoring in the rst half was when midelder Graham Zusis shot sailed over the cage. That scoring attempt solicited numerous awwwws from the U.S. fans at the Ice House. It was a nice shot, Hurley said, too bad it was too high.

Three City Council members running unopposed for seats in Districts 1, 2 and 4 won their bids for re-election last week without a single vote being cast. Mayor Rachel Keesling and City Council members Kim Devine and Tom Cavanaugh each will be sworn in for another term at the City Councils Nov. 5 meeting a day after the general election. The deadline for candidates to qualify to run was June 20. But since no one else threw a hat in the ring, all three incumbents automatically are shoo-ins in their bids for another two-year term. Devine and Cavanaugh each will enter a second term. Council members stay putBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITERCOUNCIL | 11Matt Vituj and Heather Johnke are expecting their rst child together any week now. The Port Charlotte couple are excited, but are taking every step to make sure they are properly prepared to take care of baby Dylan.

Our Town Page 2 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, June 27, 2014 The Kiwanis Shoes for Kids project entered its 10th year this summer when the drive began Sunday. The original focus of the project remains unchanged, which is to provide a new pair of tennis shoes for any child who needs them to start the academic year. What we have noticed in these 10 years is the glorious spirit of the community that, together with the Kiwanis organization, has provided 38,978 new pairs of tennis shoes to students in Charlotte County Public Schools. The challenges of raising a family in the 21st century are both daunting and rewarding. It is not as though parents today have more responsibilities than 15, 20 or even 50 years ago. Rather, there is more competition for the attention of a youngster, from television to technology to other energies, which are sometimes negative, that are vying for the focus of a child. As a teacher entering my 28th year in the classroom, I have seen many students who have more ordeals and obstacles than I ever imagined as a child growing up in southern Ohio. Yet the human spirit is a mighty one one that can face obstacles head-on, think outside the box, and sur vive when others would give up. Sometimes all an individual needs is a smile, a hand up, a reason to put one foot in front of another, just a little condence-booster. The Kiwanis Shoes for Kids project strives to brighten the start of the school year for local children who need a little boost. We want to provide a small lift in the nancial impact of a new school year for local families, and even allow students to stride a little more condently with each step they take down the hallway. A new pair of tennis shoes can be just the key to allow a student to start the new school year with a higher level of condence. The student is proud of his new pair of sneakers that were chosen just for him by an angel of the community. Over the years, I have met many angels associated with the project, from store representatives to local residents to local businesses involved in the program to volunteers who make the program function. However the most precious individuals I have met have been some of the shoe recipients. One fondly called me Shoe Lady as I entered his school in October, delivering an assortment of shoe sizes that had been depleted since the start of the school year. His words were, Hey, Shoe Lady, do you have a size 7? I quizzically looked at him and said yes. He followed with, I have been waiting on you. Wow, talk about a powerful moment. I had received a call only a day or so before delivering the shoes. As a Kiwanis Club, we attempt to make deliver ies within 48 hours of the request, after the initial allotment is delivered at the beginning of the school year. What seemed like only a day or so to me was a lifetime for this young man who was in a pair of uncomfortable shoes. Each minute he took a step in his uncomfortable shoes, he had the hope that someone would arrive soon with a new pair of shoes that were perfect for him. The Kiwanis Shoes for Kids project collects donations all year long. However each summer, a ve-week drive is established to collect the requested shoes for the beginning of the academic year. This year the drive continues until July 27. We would greatly appreciate your support as we strive to meet the request of 4,800 new pairs of sneakers for the start of the school year for students in the Charlotte County school system. A list of the collection sites for the 2014 drive can be found at www.shoesfor kidsproject.org. Monetary donations can be mailed to Sunrise Kiwanis, 1489 Market Circle, Unit 308, Port Charlotte, FL 33953. You also may contribute through PayPal on the Sunrise Kiwanis website (www. pcsunrisekiwanis.org).

Our Town Page 4 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, June 27, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS They all came. The movers (Punta Gorda City Councilwoman Nancy Prafke), the shakers (Mike Riley, no explanation necessary), the writers (Paul Holmes), the artists (Mary Taglieri), the photographers (Sue Paquin), the business and banking reps (Julie Mathis, Jackie Benjamin, Maryann Mize), the historians (Frank Desguin), the educators (Ellen Harvey), even the funeral home folks (Stacy Jones). The cross-section of the 100 or so people who came out Tuesday for Judy Malbuissons retirement party spoke volumes of the impact she has had on so many different aspects of life in this community over the almost 13 years she served as executive director of the Arts & Humanities Council of Charlotte County. Malbuisson announced her decision to retire as the chief voice and moving force behind the arts in Charlotte in May. The councils board of directors, of which I am a member, decided to throw her a going-away party during her last week. It was a warm occasion, complemented by friendly conversation and punctuated by a couple of heartfelt speeches from Holmes and Malbuisson. But what really made the event special was how many different aspects of Charlotte County life were represented. Prafke met Malbuisson when she was CEO of Team Punta Gorda and the Artisans Atelier at the Herald Court Centre was in the works. Judy was involved, Prafke said. Shes helped showcase the arts. She helped me bring out the signicant nancial impact the arts have on Charlotte County. Judy carried that message loud and clear. Jones is the co-chair woman of Dancing with the Charlotte Stars, a fundraiser Malbuisson came up with that mir rors Dancing with the Stars, and is easily one of the most fun events held in Charlotte County. Jones also is the community relations coordinator for Kays-Ponger & Uselton Funeral Homes. The funeral home in Punta Gorda is one of the venues where local artists sponsored by the council exhibit their work as part of its Art in Public Places program. I think she has brought a lot of awareness of how much art is in the community in so many different places, Jones said. Holmes, a member of the councils board of directors and a prolic writer, offered a toast to Malbuisson. She knows so many things and so many people, he said. Id like to introduce our newest volunteer, Judy Malbuisson. Malbuisson said the day was bittersweet, but she was ready to retire. Ill lick envelopes. Ill help out with Dancing with the Charlotte Stars, but thats it, she told the gathering. She thanked the board for throwing her a retirement party. Its been fun, she said. Ive worked with so many people who are passionate about the arts, and most of them are in this room. Later, she said she was touched by all the people here, but Im looking forward to doing what I want to do when I want to do it. The rst day she gets to do that is Saturday. Her plans? Shes going to volunteer at the Junior Leadership Charlotte golf fundraiser. Mathis, the executive director of the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce, which sponsors that program, said Malbuisson put arts on the map in Charlotte County. From a business standpoint, she showed Charlotte County how important the arts are to the economy. I dont think those conversations were had before. Thats kind of extraordinary. Harvey, a curriculum specialist for Charlotte County Public Schools and a council board member, said Malbuisson was instrumental in getting arts in education grants for the schools, a program that no longer exists. Empty Bowls started with an arts in education grant, she said. I got a couple of them. Thats why Im on this board. Its helped so many people. Its a legacy for the arts council Judy and the schools.

(nee Walker) Keyes of Wauwatosa, Wis., and North Port, Fla., entered eternal life Monday, June 23, 2014. She was born in 1932. Barbara was united in Holy Matrimony on May 5, 1951, with William, who has awaited her arrival in Heaven since Feb. 24, 2012. In 1977, Barbara earned her RN Degree from MATC, and a certicate in Parish Nursing from Marquette University in 1995. At 45, Barbara began her professional nursing career later than most, but she quickly realized her talents as a leader. She founded the WI Alzheimers Disease & Research Disorders Association (ADRDA), the WI Alzheimers Information & Training Center (WAITC), and was a member of the team that created the rst Alzheimers Daycare Program in the United States. Her efforts effected program development nationally and internationally. When Bills health problems forced relocation to Florida in 1996, she carved another remarkable career as a Parish Nurse at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in Venice, Fla. She continued her tireless devotion and genuine concern for everyone, and would enlist the expertise of her children and friends as she delegated and inspired their efforts. Barbaras nal journey began this spring, when she faced the diagnosis of anaplastic thyroid carcinoma with courage, love, dignity, grace, and an urgency to plan every detail of her funeral, save this obituary. She enjoined those she met in admiration by explaining how she did not fear death. This powerful woman kept tight the reins until her nal breath; knowing her earthly work was nished, she met Our Lord. We will miss her terribly, but know her spirit remains to comfort and inspire us. Buen Camino. Their marriage was blessed with eight children, Dr. Maureen (Ron Taylor) Keyes, Michael (Janis), Kathryn (Michael ODell), Peggy (Steve Koszalka), Eileen (Gregg Wernsman), Kevin (Lisa), the Rev. Dr. Patrick Keyes, C.Ss.R, and Erin (Jay Orlowski). Survivors also include 14 grandchildren, Eric Graff, Matthew Schotting, Patrick Keyes, Christian and William ODell, Madeline and Daniel Wernsman, Meghan, Eamonn, Molly and Claire Keyes, and Nicholas, Haley and Michael Orlowski; two great-grandchildren; Barbaras special friend, Stephanie Sue Stein; siblings, Phillip, Rose, Margaret and Jeannine; sisters-in-law, Connie, Eileen, Fran, Chris and Jean; nieces and nephews; and innumerable friends. Barbara was preceded in death by six grandchildren, Ryan and Stephen Keyes, Sean ODell, Kaitlin, Stephen and Hannah Wernsman; sister, Pattie Wilke; and brother-in-law, Bob Keyes. Visitation will be from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., with a Vigil Service at 7 p.m., today, Friday, June 27, 2014, at Rozga-Walloch Funeral Home in Milwaukee, Wis. Celebration of the Mass of Christian Burial is set for 10:30 a.m. Saturday, June 28, 2014, at Christ King Catholic Church, 2612 N. Swan Blvd., Wauwatosa. Interment will be at Holy Cross Cemetery in Milwaukee. MURDOCK What Charlotte County Community Development Director Ty Harris calls a streamlined comprehensive plan, some West County residents see as stripping the county of wetland and other protections. Commissioners voted Tuesday to send the draft of the streamlined Smart Charlotte 2050 plan to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity for review as-is even though they heard wor ries that mangrove and other protections were being gutted from it. The state has 30 days to respond and to suggest changes. Due to changes in state statutes regarding community planning, Harris said regulatory language in the comp plan needed to be deleted. He suggested it should be addressed in the countys land-development regulations. Citing state sources, Harris also said, When a federal, state or regional agency has implemented a regulatory program, a local government is not required to duplicate or exceed that regulatory program in their comprehensive plan. More importantly, Harris said, comprehensive plans and other regulations must show sensitivity to private property rights. That raises the hair on the backs of land-use attorneys, he said. What we have as an edge over other counties is our watershed, our sh and our environment, Jim Cooper, Lemon Bay Conservancy president, said. And if we protect and maintain that edge, we will prosper. The worry over mangroves rst was heightened a year ago by a developer who wants to build Lemon Bay Cove, a 12-unit residential project on a mangrove fringe adjacent to the Emil R. Swepston Bridge on Beach Road in Englewood. The project is now under review with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Percy Angelo, representing the Friends of Cape Haze, opposed what her group sees as watering down wetland protections, especially those adjacent to Lemon Bay. The Cape Haze group also is concerned with changes and deletions in the plan, referring to the countys transfer of density units. Former county commissioner Adam Cummings suggested prior comprehensiveplan revisions were built upon extensive public input to make it a community plan. You dont get more local control if you only do what the state law says, he said. Not everyone opposed the changes. Ian Vincent, principal ecologist with his environmental consulting rm, supported the changes, including the removal of any references to wetland regulations. He said commissioners could decide to tighten or loosen those controls in land-use regulations. Land-use attorneys Geri Waksler and Robert Berntsson supported the present draft of the comprehensive plan. It does not make sense to place your county regulations in your comprehensive plan where any change, any modication, any done in response to a situation you did not anticipate, has to be approved locally and then goes up to the state, Waksler said. Commissioner Chris Constance questioned whether more was deleted from the plan than needed to be. He saw the plan now as creating angst for those who want environmental protections. However, Constance also said, I think it has to go to the state, but I think well have to do more work when it comes back. The four other commissioners agreed.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comComp plan raises wetland worriesBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER | COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFCenter seeks volunteer cleanersThe Peace River Wildlife Center, 3400 Ponce de Leon Parkway, Punta Gorda, is seeking volunteer cleaners who love being close to Florida native wildlife and are concerned for the animals care and well-being.

LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS ROTONDA WEST A 55-year-old man was charged with aggravated assault with intent to kill and discharging a weapon in public during an argument Wednesday afternoon on Bunker Lane in Rotonda West, according to the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce. Dane Anthony De Feo, of the same address, was later arrested and taken to Charlotte County Jail, where he is being held on $12,000 bond. At about 4:30 p.m., police responded to a call from the alleged victim, who said De Feo had just threatened him with a gun, before driving away in a white Ford pickup with a boat and trailer. About an hour later, a vehicle matching the description given by the victim was stopped at Oceanspray and Gulfstream boulevards in Englewood, authorities said. De Feo was taken into custody without incident. According to the police report, the argument occurred when the victim returned home from work but couldnt pull into his driveway because De Feo was waxing his boat. This has happened before, the victim said, because De Feo is his mothers boyfriend. The victim asked De Feo to move the truck and trailer, but the offender responded with an expletive. De Feo then went inside his truck and returned with a black pistol, police said. De Feo pointed the weapon at the victim, threatened him, then red a shot in the air, the report stated. De Feo then again aimed the gun at the victim. At this point, the victim backed away as De Feo got in his truck and drove off. Police recovered a 9mm shell casing lying on the driveway. A neighbor also witnessed De Feo with the gun, police said. The Charlotte County Sheriffs Office reported the following arrests: Jeffery Larenza Kates Jr., 28, of Tallevaste, Fla.

Not every arrest leads to a conviction and guilt or innocence is determined by the court system. NORTH PORT Its been a month since 14-year-old Ivy Warhul disappeared from her moms North Port home, presumably with her boyfriend, 16-year-old Ronnie Sousa. Ivys family, including dad Scott Warhul, have been tracking down the hundreds of leads theyve received since May 27, and Scott has traveled up and down the east coast of the state, and around Southwest Florida, in hopes of locating her. People have told Scott they saw them at a gas station in St. Augustine; others have said theyve given them a few dollars to help them out. All the tips have given Scott hope, but ultimately have proved fruitless. I feel like she wants to come home, Scott said. I dont know if theyre just scared, or if something happened. Ivy vanished from her mom Stephanie Harris home on Octavius Avenue, where she stayed part time. Both Ivy and Ronnie attend the same school in Hillsborough County, where she lives with Scott. Theyre believed to be in a two-tone gray-andblue Honda Element, and Scott thinks Ivy possibly had several hundred dollars in cash on her. Both teens disappeared without taking clothes or supplies, so its unclear how theyre surviving. North Port Police Chief Kevin Vespia said the department was working with St. Johns County authorities after receiving several tips that the teens were in the St. Augustine area. Vespia said the circumstances surrounding Ivys initial disappearance didnt meet statutory requirements to issue an Amber Alert, but added that the department is doing everything it can to help nd her. We continue to use whatever resources we have to help the parents out. We want the child home safely, Vespia said. Scott said the family now is ramping up their social media efforts, including posting photos videos of Ivy on YouTube, launching a Facebook page aimed specically at drumming up information and tips, and initiating a fundraising effort to help bring her home. Scott added that, as a father, hes talked to Ivy about almost everything you could possibly talk to a teenager about, but nothing prepared him for this. Parents dont talk to their kids about this, he said. Ive had the birds and the bees talk, Ive talked to her about drugs, about bullies, about not eating too much candy. But I never talked to her about running away. Scott has not had any leads in the last two weeks that imply the two of them are still together. Ivy is 5-foot-2 and weighs 85 pounds. She has light brown hair, with blond and red highlights. Ronnie is 6 feet tall and has black hair. The license plate number for the Honda Element is DBW3S. Anyone with infor mation is asked to call Scott at 813-810-9028, or Stephanie at 941237-8602; or email PleaseHelpFindIvy@ gmail.com.Email: dwinchester@sun-herald.comTeen girl still missing after a monthBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITER IVY WARHUL In the CLASSIFIEDS!

Our Town Page 8 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, June 27, 2014 Wasting money on public worksEditor: It is no wonder the county commissioners wish to raise our water rate. The other day it took four men and two trucks from the city to replace a water meter. They should be changed every 10 years. I have not had a new one to my knowledge, and I have been here since 1961. It took exactly 10 minutes to do the job. Just think how much money those guys were paid to do a 10-minute job which one person and one truck could have done. Look around. When it rains, one will see city men sitting in their truck until its time to go home. Plenty of wasted money, and they want to raise water rates.Fran Zimmerman Punta Gorda Rob Hancik a viable candidateEditor: I recently received a campaign brochure for Rob Hancik, who is running in the August primary as a Republican for the Airport Authority District 2. According to his campaign information, he is an accredited airport executive with 32 years as the director of aviation for the Springfield, Mo., National Airport. I found his credentials to be extensive and impressive. I think he would bring valuable experience to the Airport Authority in planning for the existing and future growth of the airport. It is refreshing to see a retired, experienced individual willing to give up his time for the betterment of Charlotte County. I dont know nor have I heard of anyone in Charlotte County that can compete with his airport experience. Mr. Hancik has my vote. The voters should seriously consider him as a viable candidate. As he says, Its time for a new voice.Leonard Saluto Punta GordaCheck your ego and get to workEditor: You are right, we can agree on some things, regardless of where we are on the political spectrum. Our economy is in trouble, but more taxes isnt the answer; not supporting the rest of the world is. Even the 47 percent who dont pay income taxes do pay other taxes, while the wealthiest use tax dodges to avoid taxes. Major corporations pay almost no taxes and ship their jobs overseas, adding to the 47 percent. Fixing those problems might help. Halting the practice of buying elections would definitely better serve all Americans. Add to that, stopping legalized bribery (known as lobbying) would also help. One of our major problems revolves around immigration. Lately, that has been compounded by the huge inux of children. We dont need a fence. Bring our troops home from all around the world and put them on the border. If our troops were home, they would be safer, we would save huge amounts of money and our borders would be more secure. Plus, maybe, just maybe with our troops and weapons gone, our enemies would nd someone else to hate. Oops, sorry, they already have each other. Another major problem is health care. The ACA is part of the problem, as is the VA and both need serious work, but it is only part of the problem. We have much bigger problems with the system than that. It would be nice to have everyone put a check on their ego and come together to work on this.Sali Perry Punta GordaIn response to several recent conflicts between bears and humans in Central Florida, some legislators have suggested that the Sunshine State needs to implement a trophy hunt on the unique and rare Florida black bear a subspecies of the American black bear. The state recently filed charges against four people for allegedly feeding bears in the neighborhood where the attacks occurred. Its illegal and dangerous to feed bears. Allowing trophy hunters to shoot random bears deep in the woods wont do anything to reduce suburban conflicts and hunting is certainly not appropriate in residential neighborhoods. Since neither the problem bears, nor the issues that led to their habituation to human food are being targeted, a trophy hunt would do nothing to prevent conflicts. Floridians know that these animals naturally avoid humans. As suburban neighborhoods push into their territory, some bears are drawn to a smorgasbord of easy meals in unsecured garbage cans, pet food and other food attractants that have been left outside. Certainly, wildlife professionals must remove individual problem animals when they become conditioned to human food and become a public safety risk. Thats a targeted and selective approach. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissioner Ron Bergeron, an outdoorsman, told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel: I dont feel the problem that we have here is due to (bear) over population. I would hate to see a reaction to these incidents that I feel has a lot to do with garbage and bears coming to get an easy meal than we knee-jerk into overpopulation and possibly hunting. The majority of Floridians agree. A 2010 Mason-Dixon poll confirmed that voters re main strongly opposed by a three-to-one margin to trophy hunting the states recovering black bears. We stopped allowing bear hunting in parts of the state in 1971, when the Florida black bear was listed as a threatened species and fewer than 300 remained in the state. Thanks to the threatened species protections and a 1994 statewide ban on bear hunting, the population is finally recovering. In 2012, state officials removed the Florida black bear from the threatened species list, but the states bear population remains vulnerable because they are concentrated in isolated pockets in different parts of the state. A Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission study Wildlife 2060 predicts that 2.3 million acres of bear habitat will be destroyed in the coming decades. We know what tools work to reduce conflicts between bears and people enforcing laws that prohibit feeding, using secure garbage bins and employing aversive conditioning to stop them from learning that neighborhoods mean an easy meal. FWC bear biologist David Telesco told The Apalachicola Times that bear-proof trash containers reduce foraging by 95 percent and most bearproof container failures he has investigated were caused by user error. When fully implemented, such proactive measures clearly work to keep bears in the wilderness. A hunt, on the other hand, would be nothing more than a recreational opportunity for a few trophy hunters to bring home a head or hide. In a state where we are fortunate to have recently brought the majestic black bear back from the brink of extinction, we need sound, effective solutions from our policymakers, not scientifically baseless, quick-trigger proposals. Contact the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at Commissioners@MyFWC. com and ask the agency to keep Floridas treasured bears protected from trophy hunting.

When qualifying for three seats on the council ended at noon Friday, Mayor Rachel Keesling and Council Members Kim Devine and Tom Cavanaugh were unopposed for re-election. None faced opponents in their 2012 elections, either. Were inclined to think that the absence of challengers is a resounding endorsement for the direction of the city, but that only one of the current city council members has ever faced an opponent is curious in a city once known for its taste for bareknuckled politics. Unopposed council candidates, though, have become the norm. Before Council Member Nancy Prafkes 2013 election over Charles Counsil, the only contested council race was former Council Member Charles Wallaces 2010 District 1 re-election over John Chalifoux. That followed another fallow period for contested elections dating back to 2006 when former Mayor Harvey Goldberg defended his District 4 seat against Tom LeGros and Wallace defeated incumbent Council Member Tom Poole in his rst run for ofce. The year before, former Mayor Larry Friedman won his District 3 rematch against former Council Member John Land. The District 2 seat now held by Keesling has had only one contested race since the Reagan administration. After former Mayor Lindsay Harrington defeated the late Sandy MacGibbon in February 1988, he went unchallenged until he resigned to run for the Legislature in 1996. His appointed successor, former Mayor Marilyn SmithMooney faced only one contested re-election, in 1998 when she won a three-way race. That year was the high-water mark for council campaigns, as seven candidates vied for three seats. A dearth of candidates isnt the only factor in Punta Gordas lack of electoral action. Historically, the city has seen a slew of appointed council members because the city charter doesnt include a provision for special elections in the case of the death, resignation or removal of a sitting member. Six former council members Friedman, John Murphy, Smith-Mooney, Jane Brenner, Dawn MacGibbon and Albers have been appointed in the past 30 years. In the early 1990s, ve council members were appointed in ve years. An absence of campaigns in the city has its drawbacks, such as limited debate over public policy. For example, the City Councils push to build a $28 million reverse osmosis water plant with no guarantee it will receive matching funding from the regional water district merited a far broader range of discussion. Were surprised a candidate hasnt come forward with a bold proposal to jump-start the moribund City Marketplace property in downtown. Prickly issues such as airport noise also failed to inspire multiple candidates to challenge the status quo. One potential deterrent is the brief two-year term for council members. The prospect of campaigning every other year could dissuade would-be candidates from seeking ofce. Meager pay for long hours is another downside of seeking public ofce in the city. We congratulate the three council members for winning re-election, but we must say we would have preferred a campaign, with a frank and vigorous discussion of important issues and a chance for candidates to lay out a vision for their city. vlavAlleNCMJournal1000HAVEA .kw kJGREATSUMMER!Rd 0 0cr I J VVj67

The Sun /Friday, June 27, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINT Im old enough to remember when American liberals cherished the freedom of speech guaranteed by the First Amendment. They celebrated especially the freedom accorded those with unpopular beliefs and protested attempts to squelch the expression of differing opinions. Today things are different. American liberals are not challenging the Supreme Court rulings extending First Amendment protection to nude dancers, flag burners and students wearing antiwar armbands. They are content to leave these as forms of protected free speech. But political speech is a whole other thing. Currently 43 Democratic senators are so-sponsoring the constitutional amendment introduced by New Mexicos Sen. Tom Udall to amend the First Amendment so that it no longer protects political speech. To protect the integrity of the legislative and electoral processes, the text reads, Congress shall have power to regulate the raising and spending of money and in-kind equivalents with respect to federal elections, including limits on contributions to and spending by or against candidates. The same power is given to state governments. Delphically, the amendment adds, Nothing in this article shall be construed to grant Congress the power to abridge the freedom of the press. So The New York Times can keep commenting on elections. Maybe bloggers can, too. (Are they the press?) But if you want to run an ad on television or send out a mailing opposing a candidates stand on an issue, these 43 Democratic senators want to shut you down. Too much conver sation could muddy the waters, apparently. And note that spending against a candidate can be barred (incumbents hate well-financed challengers) and that in-kind equivalents gas money to circulate petitions? shoe leather? can be limited. Many Democrats have been hopping mad about the exercise of free political speech since the Supreme Courts 2010 Citizens United decision. Thats the case President Obama criticized in front of several justices in his 2011 State of the Union address. Citizens United is a corporation that produced something called Hillary: The Movie and wanted to show it within 30 days of the 2008 Democratic primaries. The lower courts said this violated the 2002 McCainFeingold limitations on electioneering communications. The Supreme Court said it was free speech, protected by the First Amendment. Over the years, supporters of campaign finance regulation, not all of them Democrats, have argued that spending money is not speech. But its hard to think of any way of communicating your ideas to others, even over the Internet, Liberals champion freedom of speech Michael Barone BARONE | 10Chris McDaniel, 41, the awed paladin of the tea party persuasion who in Mississippis Republican Senate primary failed to wrest the nomination from the faltering hands of six-term incumbent Thad Cochran, 76, came into politics after a stint in talk radio. There practitioners do not live by the axiom that you dont have to explain something you never said, and McDaniel had some explaining to do about some of his more color ful broadcast opinions and phrases, which may have given a number of voters pause about whether he is quite senatorial, whatever that means nowadays. Also, Democrats and independents who had not voted in the Democrats primary could vote in the Republicans. They probably care more than Republicans like to admit that they themselves care about legislative pork, of which Cochran has served up heaping amounts during his 33 years on the Appropriations Committee. This bright red state has the nations lowest per capita income, the highest federal funding as a per cent of revenue, and a surplus of cognitive dissonance between its professed conservatism and its actual enjoyment of the benets Cochran can now continue to shovel its way. Mississippis conservatives understand the bargain they have struck. One resident of a town not named for the tea party spirit, Olive Branch, told The New York Times she suspected Cochran engaged in costly logrolling: Theres no telling what kinds of liberal things he had to vote for to get those kinds of things for Mississippi what kind of trading he had to do. Give tea partyers their due by acknowledging the virtue that makes them scary to their cultured despisers. The tea partys critics consider its politics not properly focused on the material things appropriations buy. Ten years ago, a talented polemicist of the left, Thomas Frank, wrote a lively lament, Whats the Matter with Kansas? His books title replicated the title of a scalding 1896 editorial in The Emporia Gazette by that papers famous editor William Allen White, who believed that populist hostility to sophisticates and wealth-creators was impoverishing Kansas. In 2004, Frank, a Kansas native, argued that Kansans vote against the Democratic Party because they misunderstand their fundamental interests. Rather than lining up for largess from liberalisms government cornucopia, they are distracted by cultural concerns. Instead of seeking concrete benets, they vote about abstractions, such as constitutionalism, limited government and cultural conservatism. So, whats the matter with the tea party, according to those who think there is much the matter with it? It is insufciently materialistic. Hence its reluctance to be bought by the appropriator. And whats the matter with Mississippi? The fact the state has waited a long time for this to be said that it is so much like the rest of the nation. The best thing about Mississippis recent moment in the national spotlight is how normal the state seems. It is, like the nation, dened by its ambivalence, its uneasy conscience, about its appetite for what Washington dispenses. Mississippi today is burning with embarrassment, but not, at long last, embarrassment about race. Its Republican primary occurred three days after the 50th anniversary of the disappearance and murder of three civil rights workers Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman and James Chaney near the town of Philadelphia in Neshoba County. Today, Philadelphias mayor is an African-American, and Mississippi, which is 37 percent AfricanAmerican, has more African-American elected ofcials than any other state. Mississippi has not elected a Democratic senator since 1982, when it gave a sixth full term to John Stennis, who was rst elected to ll a vacancy created by an incumbents death in 1947. Which means no Mississippian has become a freshmen Democratic senator since Harry Truman was president. So, the tea partys low-risk insurrection hardly threatened a Republican Senate seat. McDaniels defeat, like many the tea party has experienced this primary season, brings that feisty faction face to face with a melancholy fact: Americans devotion to frugal government is frequently avowed but rarely inhibiting. If the nations trajectory is to be changed, this will not be done as abruptly as tea partyers wish, and will not be done without their continued wholesome agitation. They must take to heart the truth Thomas Jefferson told in 1790 to a con gressional candidate. Jefferson said that the ground of liberty is to be gained by inches, that we must be contented to secure what we can get from time to time, and eternally press forward for what is yet to get. George Will is a colum nist for The Washington Post. Readers may reach him at georgewill@ washpost.com.Mississippi votes its appetite George Will If he runs again in 2016, Texas Gov. Rick Perry hopes better physical and substantive preparation will enable him to avoid the mishaps that made his 2012 race painful and very humbling. Initial results are distinctly mixed. One of Perrys greatest assets is his engaging personal manner, reminiscent of Ronald Reagan. But he may have difficulty escaping the 2012 consensus hes not up to being president. As Will Rogers (or perhaps Mark Twain or Oscar Wilde) noted, You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Already, Perry has stirred one flap akin to those that marked his 2012 campaign, likening homosexuality to alcoholism. And he raised questions about his interest level by suggesting he may retire next January to California. In any case, Perry says, 2012 taught him a lot. Preparation is the single most important lesson I learned out of that process and, over the past 18 months, Ive focused on being substantially better prepared, he told reporters at a luncheon sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor last week. After 2011 back surgery, hes stopped running and wearing cowboy boots. And his schedule this year included the World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland. But he cautioned reporters not take his preparation as an indication Ive made a decision on whether Im going to run for the presidency or not. Perry knows he needs to prevent a recurrence of the ill-considered comments and occasional inability to explain his own proposals that torpedoed his 2012 bid, exemplified by his brain cramp in an October 2011 television debate when asked the three Cabinet departments he proposed scrapping. The Oops he expressed came to epitomize his campaign. But more extensive preparation has not yet made Perry accident-proof. I readily admit, I stepped right into it, he conceded at the lunch, referring to his controversial comments two weeks ago about homosexuality and alcoholism and adding he should have stuck to his main point: Whether youre gay or straight, you need to be having a job. During the Monitor session, Perry erroneously referred to Richard Fisher, president and CEO of the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank, as the Federal Reserve chairman. While no one raised it, he might not be so fortunate in a televised debate. Reporters raised three other potential problems. First, his age. Hell turn 66 during the campaign, older than all likely Republican rivals (though three years younger than Hillary Clinton). Sixty-six is the new 46, he quipped, adding that Age is less important than ideas or experiences, especially for Republicans having watched this young, inexperienced president bumble from scandal to foreign policy debacle after debacle. Second, his disagreement with the scientific consensus that human-created pollution is a major cause of global climate change. That is not settled science, he insisted. Short term, Im substantially more concerned about Iran changing the temperature in New York than I am some 50 years down the road that could be played by the environmental choices that are being made in the United States, he said. Third, the political rise of a fellow Texas Republican, Sen. Ted Cruz, who outruns Perry in recent Texas and national polls. He dismissed Cruz as a junior senator, and, when asked about his defeat by Cruz in a straw poll at the recent state Republican convention, noted he trailed former Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison by 30 points the year before he routed her in the 2010 gubernatorial primary. Despite Perrys easy dismissal of those potential problems, he sometimes indicates an awareness that the presidency might not be in the cards. Mark Leibovich of The New York Times said Perry told him he loves California and might retire there after leaving office. And he told the Monitor luncheon his goal is remaining a person of influence in some form or fashion. It may not take the role of a candidate. Not only is my eyesight beginning to fail, but Im getting to be a bit of an elder statesman, so maybe thats the role he added, alluding to the eyeglasses he now wears in what critics derided as an effort to look smarter. Whether he runs or not, he vowed: Im not going to ride off into the sunset. Carl Leubsdorf is Washington bureau chief of The Dallas Morning News.

Our Town Page 10 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, June 27, 2014 VIEWPOINT without spending money. A louder response to Citizens United is that it is preposterous to say that corporations have a right to free speech. Only individuals do. Which, I suppose, means that The New York Times could be restricted as long as its a corporation, but not if it were personally owned by Arthur O. Sulzberger, Jr. This is not the only example of liberals trying to squelch unwelcome speech. Read the Lois Lerner Internal Revenue Service emails that someone somehow didnt manage to destroy, and you see a liberal self-righteously determined to silence opponents. Similarly, the runaway Democratic prosecutors in Wisconsin, since slapped down by a state and a federal judge, sought to intimidate people who wanted to advocate policies supported by Gov. Scott Walker. Where does this speech-squelching impulse come from? Perhaps a sense of victimization. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who lets few bills or amendments come to the Senate floor, has been orating for days against billionaires Charles and David Koch. Their offense is to advocate their ideas and encourage election of people who agree with them. The decisions by the Supreme Court have left the American people with a status quo in which one sides billionaires are pitted against the other sides billionaires, Reid said the other day. Except one side doesnt have many billionaires. Nonsense. George Soros. Penny Pritzker. Tom Steyer, who has pledged $100 million to Keystone XL pipeline opponents, is meeting with top officials in the White House on Wednesday. There are dozens of other wellheeled Democrats. Fifty years ago, Republicans had a big financial advantage, and few rich people backed liberals. That may account for the mindset of Reid (born 1939, first elected to public office 1968). Not all liberals feel that way. Carl Levin (born 1934, first elected to public office 1968) is one of 12 Senate Democrats not co-sponsoring the Udall amendment. Perhaps he remembers, as I do, the good old days when liberals defended free speech. Michael Barone is a senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner. Readers can reach him via www. washingtonexaminer. com.BARONEFROM PAGE 9On June 14, Sunni rebels threatened Baghdad after seizing much of Iraq and President Obama fearlessly played a round at the Sunny lands Golf Course in Rancho Mirage, Calif. The next day, the militants posted pictures of their mass execution of Shiite members of Iraqs security forces and Obama boldly teed off again, at Oracle founder Larry Ellisons Rancho Mirage estate. These split-screen scenes were reminiscent of the weekend in March when Russia was about to annex Crimea. Obama played golf both Saturday and Sunday at Key Largo, Fla.s Ocean Reef resort with former NBA star Alonzo Mourning and former NFL player Ahmad Rashad. Its enough to make one wish the president would take up a different pastime say, stamp collecting. Yes, a president needs downtime. And, yes, he can run the country whether hes in a sand trap or the Situation Room. But Obamas golf habit needlessly hands his critics a gimme. Former vice president Dick Cheney, writing in the Wall Street Journal with his daughter Liz, complained: Terrorists take control of more territory and resources than ever before in history, and he goes golfing. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers gave a TV interview asking Obama to please come back from the golf course and find an Iraq solution. Is golf really so important that Obama is willing to handicap his political standing? Evidently so. On Tuesday evening, Obama hosted Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Davis Love III, Ernie Els and other pro golfers in the East Room of the White House at a reception for the 2013 Presidents Cup players. Last year was the second time Ive been honorary chairman of the Presidents Cup. The United States won both times. Im just saying, Obama joked. I was one of the many who had fun with George W. Bushs classic tee shot in 2002: I call upon all nations to do everything they can to stop these terrorist killers. Thank you. Now watch this drive. But as The Washington Posts Colby Itkowitz noted, Bush hung up his spikes after the Iraq invasion. (He busied himself with other leisure pursuits, such as clearing brush.) CBS News Mark Knoller, the unofficial statistician of presidential activities, reports that Bush played golf only 24 times while in the White House; Obama is up to 177 and now has a round-a-week habit. The image problem isnt from leisure activity per se but the type of leisure activity. A majority of Americans now believes that Obama doesnt understand their problems, and images of him playing golf perceived, fairly or not, as a rich mans game confirms this out-oftouch reputation. This is similar to the problem that dogged Mitt Romney, and now Hillary Clinton. The Posts Philip Rucker this week noted that influential Democrats are concerned that her rarefied, cloistered lifestyle could jeopar dize the Democratic Partys historic edge with the middle class. Images of Obama lining up his putt undermine his attempts to play the populist, which he has done this year on unem ployment insurance, the minimum wage and income-inequality. The game has driven another wedge between the president and White House reporters who, during their turns on pool duty, chronicle with envy his weekly outings with friends and aides. Beautiful day for hitting the links, the Washington Examiners Susan Crabtree wrote from Fort Belvoir. Unfortunately pool is headed to the base rec center for the duration. Looked like a nice place to play golf, wrote the Houston Chronicles Kevin Diaz from the exclusive Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Va., at least from the maintenance shed where pool spent the day. Obama has replaced basketball with golf as his go-to sport, in part to avoid injury, Politico reports. At a White House event on sports concussions last month, the president spoke of the therapeutic benefits of his time on the links: When I need to relax and clear my head, I turn to sports, whether its a pickup basketball game or more sedate pastimes like golf, or watching SportsCenter. Democrats probably wish, for the sake of appearance, that Obama would devote more time to ESPN and less to golf. But if the optics of manicured greens and country clubs worry Democrats, they should consider themselves lucky he didnt take up polo. Dana Milbank is a Washington Post columnist. Readers may reach him at danamilbank@ washpost.com.President Obamas political bogey Dana Milbank From her perch as head of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, Nora Volkow watches anxiously as the country embarks on what she sees as a risky social experiment in legalizing marijuana. For those who argue that marijuana is no more dangerous than tobacco and alcohol, Volkow has two main answers: We dont entirely know, and, simultaneously, that is precisely the point. Look at the evidence, Volkow said in an interview on the National Institutes of Health campus here, pointing to the harms already inflicted by tobacco and alcohol. Its not subtle its huge. Legal drugs are the main problem that we have in our country as it relates to morbidity and mortality. By far. Many more people die of tobacco than all of the drugs together. Many more people die of alcohol than all of the illicit drugs together. And its not because they are more dangerous or addictive. Not at all they are less danger ous. Its because they are legal. The legalization process generates a much greater exposure of people and hence of negative consequences that will emerge. And thats why I always say, Can we as a country afford to have a third legal drug? Can we? We know the costs already on health care, we know the costs on accidents, on lost productivity. I let the numbers speak for themselves. Volkow, 58, speaks rapidly, even urgently, in an accent that lingers from her childhood in Mexico. The great-granddaughter of Soviet communist Leon Trotsky, Volkow grew up in the Mexico City home where Trotsky was fatally attacked. It is easy to imagine, in her passionate determination, some of her ancestors revolutionary fervor, melded with a scientists evidentiary rigor. As Colorado and Washington state approve the sale of mar ijuana for recreational use and other states consider following suit, Volkow says, the notion that legalization represents a modest, costfree move is dangerously overblown. The evidence on the supposed safety of marijuana par ticularly marijuana in its modern, far-more potent form is far from clear enough to take this leap. I think that what we are seeing is a little bit of wishful thinking in the sense that we want to have a drug that will make us all feel good and believe that there are no harmful consequences, she said. When you are intoxicated, your memory and learning are going to go down. When you are intoxicated, your motor coordination is going to go down. When you are repeatedly using marijuana, there is an increased risk for addiction. And if you are an adolescent and you are taking marijuana, there is a higher increased risk for addiction and there is also a higher risk for long-lasting decreases in cognitive capacity that is, lowering of IQ. Adolescents are a chief focus of Volkows worry, to the extent that when I observe that tobacco use is clearly worse for teens, she challenges that easy assumption. Wait a second. Nicotine does not interfere with cognitive ability. So if you are an adolescent and you are smoking marijuana and going to school, its going to interfere with your capacity to learn. So what is worse, as an adolescent right now? To have basically something that is jeopardizing your development educationally or to smoke a cigarette that when you are 60 years of age is going to lead to impaired pulmonary function and perhaps cancer? I would argue that you do not want to mess with your cognitive capacity, that that is a very large price to pay. Legalization advocates counter with two contradictory arguments: that marijuana is already readily available to teenagers who want it, and that the new laws impose strict controls on sales to minors. Volkow is unconvinced, arguing that the evidence from alcohol suggests that the already large number of teenagers who have tried marijuana by the time they graduate from high school nearly half, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will only increase, along with the already rising number of those who use it on a daily basis. Our kids are sensitive to norms, so if they feel that marijuana is harmful, their consumption goes down, Volkow said. Legalization sends the opposite message. Vokow herself has never smoked pot or, as she tends to say, taken marijuana and she isnt tempted now that it is legally avail able in some places. Im not going to negate that I am curious, she said. But I am terrified about doing anything that would interfere with my cognitive capacity. I dont like to contaminate my perception of the world. I have too much respect for my brain.

The Sun /Friday, June 27, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 11 FROM PAGE ONE Unacceptable rates of infection and complications could cost Venice Regional Bayfront Health (VRBH) one percent of every Medicare payment for a year beginning in October. More than 80 percent of the hospitals patients are on Medicare. The penalty, mandated by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), would be imposed if the hospitals infection and complication rates arent below a designated threshold. The ACA requires The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to identify the hospitals ranked in the lowest 25 percent in the Hospital-Acquired Condition Reduction Program on an annual basis. The program is in its rst year. In a preliminary report issued in April, VRBH received a score of 10, the worst possible score. A score of 7 or higher, on a scale from 1 to 10, triggers the penalty. There were 761 hospitals in the report, with 175 receiving a 9 or a 10 and being at highest risk of a penalty, according to an analysis by Kaiser Health News, which covers health care policy matters. The ranking is based on a hospitals rates of infections from catheters in major veins and in the bladder, and eight potential complications from hospitalization, including blood clots, bed sores and broken hips. No other hospital in Florida received a 10. Gulf Coast Medical Center Lee Memorial Health System, in Fort Myers, scored a 9.3500. Sarasota Memorial Hospital, at 7.5500, is also in the penalty range but closer to passing. All other Sarasota and Charlotte hospitals received a preliminary score below 7, with Englewood Community Hospital getting a 1. VRBH ofcials declined requests for an interview, and issued this statement: Providing quality care and safety for our patients is our top priority, and we continuously review our outcomes and adjust our practices to support these goals. We are participating in collaboratives focused on reducing pressure ulcers, falls and infections associated with central lines and catheters. Through this work we have adopted best practices that support the best possible outcomes. Quality improvement is a hospital-wide culture and involves medical staff leadership, clinical departments and our board of trustees in reviews of our clinical results to document success and identify opportunities to improve the process of care. As our medical staff, employees and other care providers apply these practices, we expect to see continued strengthening of our quality. The preliminary scores are based on data from July 2012 through June 2013, but the nal scores will use data from calendar years 2012 and 2013. Thus, a facility that brought down its rates of infection and complications in the last six months of 2013 could escape a penalty if its score drops below 7. Two programs that are in their second year also affect a hospitals Medicare reimbursement. One levies penalties for an unacceptable rate of readmissions, while the other has both rewards and penalties depending on whether a facility meets 24 quality measures. VRBH wasnt penalized in the readmissions program and received a small bonus in the Value-Based Purchasing program.Email: bmudge@venicegondolier.comVenice hospital at risk of Medicare penaltyBy BOB MUDGESENIOR WRITER SUN PHOTO BY BOB MUDGEVenice Regional Bayfront Health is at risk of losing 1 percent of its Medicare reimbursement due to levels of infections and complications that currently exceed federal standards.PRELIMINARY SCORESOn a scale of 1 to 10, with a score of 7 or higher triggering a reduction in Medicare reimbursement payments and 10 being the worst score, here are where Sarasota and Charlotte counties hospitals rank: Venice Regional Bayfront Health 10 Sarasota Memorial Hospital 7.5500 Doctors Hospital 6.2750 Peace River Regional Medical Center (now Bayfront Health Port Charlotte) 6.0750 Fawcett Memorial Hospital 5.6750 Charlotte Regional Medical Center (now Bayfront Health Punta Gorda) 3.6250 Lakewood Ranch Medical Center 1.3500 Englewood Community Hospital 1.0000 Source: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services WHAT THEY SAIDWhat are your goals for the next two years? What do you plan to focus on? Mayor Rachel Keesling: The next two years will be challenging, because the city has relied on the (infrastructure) sales tax to partially fund or complete most of our recent projects. The uncertainty of that funding has created obstacles, but our overall (property) values are on the rise. We will be tasked with finding the balance for our citizens. Tom Cavanaugh: I plan to continue pursuing a South County Overlay that will provide for similar criteria in signage, landscaping and architectural features between the city and county. I also will focus on bringing to the city a safe, cost-effective and redundant source of potable water through our proposed reverse-osmosis (water treatment) plant. (Kim Devine did not respond.) Keesling, the longest-serving member on the council, will begin a third term. Reecting on her time in ofce, Keesling said she was pleased to see many of the citys major initiatives, like the Punta Gorda Pathways, completed. However she still would like to see Gilchrist Park renovated and improved. I would like that last major component completed, she said. For his part, Cavanaugh said he was proud to see and have a hand in the annexation of the former Loop property into the city. Cavanaugh said he was also happy to see a good working relationship between the City Council and the Charlotte County Commission and staff. Devine could not be reached for comment. Council members said being engaged in the community, being able to address citizens concerns, and nding solutions to problems have been the most rewarding aspects of their time in ofce. Our council is embedded in our community, Keesling said. We are active participants. We are all accessible and transparent. That, along with an extremely responsive city manager and staff, makes Punta Gorda a unique place to live.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comCOUNCILFROM PAGE 1 I had no idea about all that was involved with car seats, Vituj, 30, said Wednesday after a 90-minute class. I was complaining the whole ride here. But after watching a few of the videos, I realized I need to pay attention to this. I think (CPS classes) should be mandatory. But now the programs future may be in jeopardy. Were pretty much at the end of the road, said Fire/EMS public relations coordinator Dee Hawkins-Garland a certied CPS technician who teaches the monthly classes. She started the program 15 years ago after the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce stopped offering similar classes. The newer program has been funded by donations and grant money. And Fire/EMS collected many new car seats that have been offered to class participants at a discounted price a perk for taking the course. Also, thanks to a partnership with local conferences of St. Vincent de Paul, those who cant afford a car seat can apply for a voucher to trade in for one. Over 400 people per year have taken advantage of the program. But all the seats were depleted today, Hawkins-Garland said after Wednesdays course. We denitely could use support from sponsors or donations. Earlier this year, some people were counterfeiting the vouchers handed out by St. Vincent de Paul, Hawkins-Garland said. Then, after trading in the fake vouchers for a car seat at the Public Safety Building, the scammers tried to return the seats to local businesses, claiming they didnt have a receipt. That exhausted a good portion of our stock, Hawkins-Garland said. Now, a photo ID is required on both ends of the voucher program, and the car seats have been specially marked so they cant be falsely returned to stores. But the program is still out the seats. We are really proud of public programs like this because the money to run them doesnt come out of the budget, Hawkins-Garland said. And we can really do good in the community with them. But we need help. Jessy Celestin, 33, has two young boys and is expecting her rst girl in September. She received a discounted car seat through the CPS program but also took Wednesdays class because she was getting mixed information about child passenger safety and wanted clarication. She said she learned a lot and hopes others still will be afforded the same chance. Im glad I did this class, she said. I have friends who dont use seat belts the right way. I was taking notes so I can pass this information on to them. Gov. Rick Scott signed legislation Tuesday that beginning Jan. 1 will require motor vehicle operators in Florida to use crash-tested, federally approved child restraints for children 5 years old and younger (the current law is for children 3 years old and younger). The new law is a step in the right direction for added safety, HawkinsGarland said. But people need education it can save lives. Hawkins-Garland said there may be funds available for one more class in July, but she isnt sure what will happen beyond that.

Anticipation builds for the meal diners soon will have, because they know they are going to be treated to a feast. Fridays are always special at the Port Charlotte facility that feeds the homeless and the needy. Not just the homeless, but also anyone in need of a meal is welcome in the dining room between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. There is a paid chef every night except for Fridays, when volunteer chef Donna Dunbar takes over. For 15 years, that kitchen duty has been her labor of love. Im thankful that God uses me in this way, she says. Its a blessing to work with the staff and other volunteers. Two years ago, when she was offered the position of dietitian at Bayfront Medical Center, she said she would take the job only if she could have Fridays off to continue cooking at the homeless coalition. Ive been poor in the past, and I want to do everything in my power to make sure people dont go hungry, Donna says. That same kind of dedication is evident in her volunteer staff. I can always count on them to be here every week no matter what, Donna says. When Im on vacation, assistant chefs Sonya Baird and Hank Jacque take over. We have a perfect team of volunteers. That mutual affection is palpable, both for the volunteers and for those they serve. We get to know them and know their stories, Donna says, adding, when they come in to the dining room, we want the experience to be like being treated to a feast in a nice restaurant. She has printed menus with the days offerings at each place setting. The homeless, many of them parents with children, sit at tables with white tablecloths while volunteer servers wait on them. Last Friday, there were 12 entres for the choosing, including roasted turkey and gravy, shrimp marinara and other favorites. We clean out our freezers on Friday so there are more offerings, Operations Director John Fanning explains. All food received at the coalition is donated, he stresses, with area churches, restaurants, organizations and local supermarkets helping to keep the facility stocked when possible. But often, its touchand-go, when meals have to be prepared and the donations arent there. Oftentimes, I feel like a father struggling to put food on the table for his big family, Fanning says. But God always sends his angels when they are most needed, he believes. Sometimes we have no eggs or milk, but then someone shows up with it. Donna agrees its easy to see the hand of God in how the homeless coalition manages to meet its needs. There are so many stories I can tell that cant be explained any other way, she says. But donations are slow in the summer, when sometimes there are not enough volunteers or donations. Everyone thinks about helping at Thanksgiving and Christmas, but they forget about us during the off-season when we most need the help, Fanning says. He encourages those willing to donate or volunteer to come in any weekday. We also still have a few openings where we need individuals, church groups or restaurants to give us food or monetary donations and help in the dining room, he says. In addition, there are dozens of areas where volunteers can help, not just in the dining room. For more information, call the volunteer coor dinator at 941-627-4313, ext. 118; or visit www. cchomelesscoalition.org. We need people now because hunger doesnt go away in the summertime, Donna says. We have to feed people every day. Pattie Mihalik is a regular columnist for the Sun.

The estimates show Floridas population grew by 1.2 percent from 2012 to 2013, and the state had about 19.5 million residents as of July 2013. The Census estimate had Florida trailing New York by less than 150,000 residents to be the nations fourth most populous state, but that estimate is now likely outdated. Floridas growth has outpaced New York and Florida likely surpassed New York in population earlier this year to qualify as the nations third most populous state. More than 232,000 new residents were added between July 2012 and July 2013, a gure that is still less than the number of new Floridians at the height of the states last population boom in the middle of the last decade. But University of Florida demographer Stefan Rayer said it marks a return to decent growth following stagnant population change during the recession. When you compare it to 2008 or 2009, when the population wasnt growing, then its quite a rebound, Rayer said. Floridas overall population growth was driven by migration. New residents accounted for more than 90 percent of the population growth in the past three years, and more than 80 percent of the population change from 2012 to 2013.

Taking aspirin regularly for a decade cut the risk by 60 percent. Studies have found that regular aspirin use reduces the risk for colon, esophageal, lung and prostate cancers, and the pill is often prescribed to lessen heart attack and stroke risk.

Page 2 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, June 27, 2014 NATIONAL NEWS WASHINGTON (AP) A giant food service company unexpectedly reversed course Thursday after bumping thousands of college cafeteria workers from its health plan earlier this year and pointing a nger at President Barack Obamas overhaul. Sodexos experience could serve as a cautionary tale for other employers trying to pin benet reductions on Obamacare. The companys cutbacks fueled a union organizing drive and campus protests. Julie Peterson, Sodexos vice president for benets, said the company will make changes for next year to restore eligibility for many of those affected. We think that overall this is going to result in about the same number of employees being eligible as in the past, Peterson said. The latest shift grew out of a regular review of company policy, she added. Weve realized we can change the way we are determining eligibility and still remain competitive in the market, Peterson explained. Among those who lost their coverage through Sodexo this year was Julie Pemberton, a cashier at Curry College, a liberal arts institution near Boston. Pemberton puts in more than 40 hours a week during the academic year. Shes paying over $200 a month more in premiums since she switched to a plan from the Massachusetts health insurance exchange. Im actually looking for a new apartment because this is just draining any savings I have, said Pemberton. I cant just keep paying and paying and paying. UNITE HERE, a labor union trying to organize Sodexo workers, said the companys initial cutback was facilitated by what it calls a loophole in federal regulations carrying out the health laws employer coverage requirement. The Obama administration responds that the employer, not the health care law, was to blame. French-owned Sodexo is a multinational service company with U.S. headquarters in Maryland. It operates many college cafeterias and also provides other campus services. In January, Sodexo reclassied some of its workers as part-time by averaging their hours over a 52-week calendar year. That affected about 5,000 of its 133,000 U.S. employees. Sodexo said it was acting to align itself with the health care law, which requires that employers with 50 or more workers offer coverage to those averaging at least 30 hours per week, or face nes. Company ofcial Peterson said Thursday that for benets purposes, the company will now credit campus employees during the summer break with the hours they would have worked during the academic year. The UNITE HERE union says federal rules require colleges and universities to essentially do the same thing for their faculty employees. But those rules dont apply to contractor employees in cafeterias. There is nothing in there that says contract workers are protected, said union spokesman Ethan Snow.Sodexo cafeteria workers regain health coverage CHICAGO (AP) Good thing she doesnt need a password to get into heaven. Thats what Donna Spinner often mutters when she tries to remember the growing list of letter-numberand-symbol codes shes had to create to access her various online accounts. At my age, it just gets too confusing, says the 72-year-old grandmother who lives outside Decatur, Illinois. But this is far from just a senior moment. Frustration over passwords is as common across the age brackets as the little reminder notes on which people often write them. We are in the midst of an era I call the tyranny of the password, says Thomas Way, a computer science professor at Villanova University. Were due for a revolution. One could argue that the revolution is already well underway, with passwords destined to go the way of the oppy disc and dial-up Internet. Already, there are multiple services that generate and store your passwords so you dont have to remember them. Beyond that, biometric technology is emerging, using thumbprints and face recognition to help us get into our accounts and our devices. Some new iPhones use the technology, for instance, as do a few retailers, whose employees log into work computers with a touch of the hand. Still, many people cling to the password, the devil we know even though the passwords we end up creating, the ones we CAN remember, often arent very secure at all. Look at any list of the most common passwords making the rounds on the Internet and youll nd anything from abc123, letmein and iloveyou to you guessed it use of the word password as a password. Bill Lidinsky, director of security and forensics at the School of Applied Technology at the Illinois Institute of Technology, has seen it all and often demonstrates in his college classes just how easy it is to use readily available software to gure out many passwords. I crack my students passwords all the time, Lidinsky says, sometimes in seconds. Even so, a good password doesnt necessarily have to be maddeningly complicated, says Keith Palmgren, a cybersecurity expert in Texas. Whoever coined the phrase complex password did us a disservice, says Palmgren, an instructor at the SANS Institute, a research and education organization that focuses on high-tech security. Hes teaching a course on passwords to other tech professionals later this summer and plans to tell them that the focus should be on unpredictability and length the more characters, the better. But it doesnt have to be something you cant remember. If a site allows long passwords and special characters, Palmgren suggests using an entire sentence as a password, including spaces and punctuation, if possible: This sentence is an example. He also suggests plugging in various types of passwords on a website developed by Californiabased Gibson Research Corp. to see how long it could take to crack each type of password: https://www.grc.com/ haystack.htm According to the site, it could take centuries to uncover some passwords, but seconds for others.T1red of psswords?

WASHINGTON (AP) The Supreme Court unanimously struck down the 35-foot protest-free zone outside abortion clinics in Massachusetts Thursday, declaring it an unconstitutional restraint on the free-speech rights of protesters. Authorities have less intrusive ways to deal with potential confrontations or other problems that can arise outside clinics, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote. Roberts noted that most of the problems reported by police and the clinics in Massachusetts occurred outside a single Planned Parenthood facility in Boston, and only on Saturdays when the largest crowds typically gather. For a problem shown to arise only once a week in one city at one clinic, creating 35-foot buffer zones at every clinic across the Commonwealth is hardly a narrowly tailored solution, Roberts said. He wrote the majority opinion after asking no questions exceedingly rare for him at the argument in January. Roberts noted that no other state has a similar law and that he is aware of only ve cities that have created xed buffer zones around abortion clinics: Burlington, Vermont; Pittsburgh; Portland, Maine, and San Francisco and Santa Barbara in California. The ruling also left intact a high court decision from 2000 that upheld a oating buffer zone in Colorado. While the court was unanimous in the overall outcome, Roberts joined with the four liberal justices to strike down the buffer zone on narrower grounds than the other, more conservative justices wanted. In a separate opinion, Justice Antonin Scalia criticized Roberts opinion as carrying forward this courts practice of giving abortion-rights advocates a pass when it comes to suppressing the free-speech rights of their opponents. Scalia said state and local governments around the country would continue to be able to restrict antiabortion speech without fear of rigorous constitutional review. Joined by Justices Anthony Kennedy and Clarence Thomas, Scalia dissented from the Colorado decision and said Thursday he would have overturned it. Still, abortion rights advocates lamented the new ruling and said it compromised the safety of women seeking abortions. This decision shows a troubling level of disregard for American women, who should be able to make carefully considered, private medical decisions without running a gantlet of harassing and threatening protesters, said Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Nearing the end of its 2013-14 term, the court decided another potentially signicant case Thursday, ruling that temporary, recess appointments made by President Barack Obama to the National Labor Relations Board in 2012 were illegal because the Senate was not, in fact, in recess when Obama acted. In that case as well, the court was unanimous about the outcome but divided over the reasoning. The justices will meet one last time on Monday to hand down decisions in cases involving the Obama health law requirement that employers cover womens contraception in their employee health plans and the ability of unions representing government employees to collect fees from workers who dont wish to join the union.High court voids abortion clinic protest-free zone AP FILE PHOTOThis Dec. 17, 2013, photo shows anti-abortion protester Eleanor McCullen, of Boston, standing at the painted edge of a buer zone outside a Planned Parenthood location in Boston. | NATIONAL NEWS BRIEFSFormer Senate majority leader Baker dies at 88(Bloomberg) Howard Baker Jr., who played key roles in Ronald Reagans presidency as legislative spearcarrier in the Senate during the administrations triumphant rst year, and as a steadying hand inside the White House during its troubled later years, has died. He was 88. He died Thursday at his home in Huntsville, Tennessee, according to John Tuck, a senior adviser in the Washington ofce of Baker Donelson, the law rm where he was senior counsel. The cause was complications from a stroke he suffered on June 21. The namesake son of a seven-term congressman and son-in-law of Senate Republican leader Everett Dirksen, Baker represented Tennessee in the Senate for 18 years, rose to majority leader and ran unsuccessfully for president before replacing Donald Regan as President Reagans chief of staff. BAKERRuling limits presidents recess appointmentsWASHINGTON (AP) The Supreme Court on Thursday limited the presidents power to ll high-level administration posts with temporary appointments, ruling in favor of Senate Republicans in their par tisan clash with President Barack Obama. But the justices stopped short of a more sweeping decision that would have effectively ended a presidents power to make recess appointments when the Senate takes a break. It was the high courts rst case involving the Constitutions recess appointments clause, ending with a unanimous decision that Obamas appointments to the National Labor Relations Board in 2012 without Senate conrmation were illegal. Obama had argued that the Senate was on an extended holiday break and that the brief sessions it held every three days what lawmakers call pro forma were a sham intended to prevent him from lling seats on the NLRB.Ed official: Some campuses hostile to victimsWASHINGTON (AP) Some colleges and universities are still failing students by inadequately responding to campus sexual assault, a senior Education Department ofcial testied Thursday. For those schools, my ofce and this administration have made it clear that the time for delay is over, Catherine Lhamon, the departments assistant secretary for civil rights, told the Senate committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. Lhamon said that since the beginning of President Barack Obamas term in 2009, her ofce has investigated more than 100 such cases. Through them, she said, the ofce is aware that some schools are doing things such as retaliating against students for ling complaints and allowing perpetrators to remain in school. However, Lhamon said, many colleges and universities are stepping up to the challenge of addressing the problem of sexual assault.FAA, developers clash over tall buildingsWASHINGTON (AP) The government wants to dramatically reduce the allowable height of buildings near thousands of airports a proposal that is drawing re from real estate developers and members of Congress who say it will reduce property values. The Federal Aviation Administration proposal, supported by airports and airlines, is driven by encroaching development that limits safe ight paths for planes that might lose power in an engine during takeoff. Planes can y with only one engine, but they have less power to climb quickly over obstacles. Airlines have to plan for the possibility that a plane could lose the use of an engine during takeoff even though that doesnt happen very often. As more buildings, cellphone towers, wind turbines and other tall structures go up near airports, there are fewer safe ight paths available. Current regulations effectively limit building heights based on the amount of clearance needed by planes with two operating engines.AAA: July 4 weekend to see most drivers in 7 yearsNEW YORK (Bloomberg) The most Americans in seven years will travel by car over the July 4 Independence Day holiday and theyll be paying for the most expensive fuel since 2008 with credit cards, according to a forecast by AAA.

Gasoline pump prices are the highest level for this time of year in six years, AAA data show. Drivers will account for more than 80 percent of the estimated 41 million people that will celebrate the holiday with a getaway, AAA said.

The Sun /Friday, June 27, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 3 WORLD NEWS IZVARYNE, Ukraine (AP) As a shaky cease-re in the east entered its nal hours Thursday, thousands of Ukrainians in cars stuffed with belongings lined up at the border to cross into Russia, some vowing never to return. Many said they were most frightened for their children and desperate to take them to safety. A commander at the rebel-controlled border post outside the city of Luhansk said 5,000 people had left by evening, joining a stream that he said has continued unabated during the weeklong truce that has failed to end the gunre and shelling. Russia says tens of thousands of Ukrainians have come in the 2 12 months since Ukraines government began ghting separatists in the east, a heavily industrial region with a large population of ethnic Russians, many of whom feel strong ties to Moscow. Air strikes and artillery attacks by the Ukrainian military have infuriated many residents, and many crossing the border on Thursday said they were eeing the ghting, which has killed more than 400 people since mid-April by the United Nations estimate. Those who talked to Associated Press journalists, however, said nothing to indicate that they supported the armed separatists, who have seized government buildings, declared independence and asked Russia to annex the region. With the cease-re set to expire on Friday, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko called on Russia to support his peace plan with deeds, not words. He urged Moscow to stop the ow of ghters from Russia. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said they, too, were looking for more action from Moscow ahead of a summit on Friday of European Union leaders, who will be considering a new round of sanctions against Russia. It is critical for Russia to show in the next hours, literally, that theyre moving to help disarm the separatists, to encourage them to disarm, Kerry said in Paris. The summit also will see Ukraine sign a sweeping trade agreement with the EU that will bind it more closely to the West. Russian President Vladimir Putin has urged Poroshenko to extend the truce and hold talks with the separatists in the eastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions. Poroshenko announced Thursday that representatives of the mutinous regions have agreed to talks with Russian, Ukrainian and European envoys. It will be the second round of talks since Monday in which the rebel leaders have participated. Russian news agencies quoted Andrei Purgin, a leader of the self-proclaimed Donetsk Peoples Republic, as saying the next round would be held Friday in Donetsk. Poroshenko has shown no willingness to extend the cease-re, and his next step may hinge on the outcome of the talks.Thousands flee Ukraine for Russia AP PHOTOPeople jump over a puddle as they walk to cross the border into Russia at the Ukrainian-Russian border checkpoint in Izvaryne, Luhansk region, eastern Ukraine Thursday. SYDNEY (AP) Investigators believe the missing Malaysia Airlines plane ew on autopilot for hours before crashing into a remote part of the Indian Ocean, Australian ofcials said Thursday as they announced another shift in the search area for the jet. After analyzing data exchanged between the plane and a satellite, ofcials believe Flight 370 was on autopilot the entire time it was ying across a vast expanse of the southern Indian Ocean, based on the straight path it took, Australian Transport Safety Bureau chief commissioner Martin Dolan said. Certainly for its path across the Indian Ocean, we are condent that the aircraft was operating on autopilot until it ran out of fuel, Dolan told reporters in Canberra, the nations capital. Asked whether the autopilot would have to be manually switched on, or whether it could have been activated automatically under a default setting, Dolan replied, The basic assumption would be that if the autopilot is operational its because its been switched on. But exactly why the autopilot would have been set on a ight path so far off course from the jets destination of Beijing, and exactly when it was switched on remain unknown. We couldnt accurately, nor have we attempted to, x the moment when it was put on autopilot, Transport Minister Warren Truss said. It will be a matter for the Malaysian-based investigation to look at precisely when it may have been put on autopilot. The latest nugget of information from the investigation into Flight 370 came as ofcials announced yet another change in the search area for the plane that vanished March 8 after taking off from Kuala Lumpur with 239 passengers and crew on board. The transport safety bureau said it made the assumption in dening the new search area that the crew was unresponsive, possibly suffering from oxygen deprivation, as the plane ew under autopilot. It said this was indicated by the loss of radio communications and the long period without any maneuvering of the plane. It emphasized, however, that this was only a working theory and did not mean that accident investigators led by Malaysia would reach a similar conclusion. A loss of cabin air pressure could cause oxygen deprivation, or hypoxia, which could make pilots unable to perform even basic tasks. The new search area is several hundred kilometers (miles) southwest of the most recent suspected crash site, about 1,800 kilometers (1,100 miles) off Australias west coast, Dolan said. Powerful sonar equipment will scour the seabed for wreckage in the new search zone, which ofcials calculated by reanalyzing the existing satellite data.Search for missing plane shifts south | WORLD NEWS BRIEFSUS ends Philippines anti-terror forceMANILA, Philippines (AP) After more than a decade of helping ght Islamic militants, the United States is disbanding an anti-terror contingent of hundreds of elite American troops in the southern Philippines where armed groups such as Abu Sayyaf have largely been crippled, ofcials said Thursday. But special forces from the U.S. Pacic Command, possibly in smaller numbers, will remain after the deactivation of the Joint Special Operations Task Force Philippines (JSOTF-P), to ensure al-Qaida offshoots such as Abu Sayyaf and the Indonesiabased Jemaah Islamiyah do not regain lost ground, according to U.S. and Philippine ofcials. The move marks a new chapter in the long-running battle against an al-Qaida-inspired movement in the southern Philippines, viewed by the U.S. as a key front in the global effort to keep terrorists at bay. It reects shifting security strategies and focus in economically vibrant Asia, where new concerns such as multiple territorial conicts involving China have alarmed Washingtons allies entangled in the disputes.Sweden to investigate Israeli boarding of Gaza-bound vesselsSTOCKHOLM (dpa) Swedish prosecutors launched an investigation Thursday into whether laws were broken in 2010 and 2012 when Israeli soldiers boarded pro-Palestinian vessels shipping humanitarian aid to Gaza. Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said Israel had not received any ofcial communication from Sweden on the investigation, and had not been asked for cooperation in the investigation. The raids affected 22 Swedish nationals on board the vessels, including author Henning Mankell, known for his best-selling crime novels. Prosecutor Henrik Attorps said the preliminary investigation centered on allegations of aggravated assault, illegal threats and failure to protect civilians affected by armed conict as stipulated under the Geneva Convention as well as theft.Prominent female activist killed in LibyaCAIRO (AP) A prominent Libyan activist who had become an international face of her strifetorn countrys efforts to build a democracy was assassinated by gunmen who stormed her home in the restive eastern city of Benghazi, police said Thursday. The slaying of Salwa Bugaighis stunned residents of her home city, politicians, activists and diplomats, among whom she was well-known. Bugaighis, a lawyer and rights activist, was at the forefront in the 2011 uprising against dictator Moammar Gadha. After his ouster, she became one of the most outspoken voices against militiamen and Islamic extremists who have run rampant in the country. The identity of the gunmen was not immediately known. Islamic radical militias, however, have been blamed for frequent assassinations of secular activists, judges, moder ate clerics, policemen, soldiers in Benghazi, Libyas second largest city.Obama seeks $500M to train, equip Syrian rebelsWASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama asked Congress Thursday for $500 million to train and arm vetted members of the Syrian opposition, as the U.S. struggles for a way to stem a civil war that has also fueled the al-Qaida inspired insur gency in neighboring Iraq. The military training program would deepen the Obama administrations involvement in the more than four-year conict between rebels and forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad. If approved by Congress, the program would supplement a covert train-and-assistance program run by U.S. intelligence agencies. The Syria program is part of a broader $65.8 billion overseas operations request that the administration sent to Capitol Hill Thursday. The package includes $1 billion to help stabilize nations bordering Syria that are struggling with the effects of the civil war. It also formalizes a request for a previously announced $1 billion to strengthen the U.S. military presence in Central and Eastern Europe amid Russias threatening moves in Ukraine.Lindsay Lohan to make stage debut in LondonLONDON (AP) Lindsay Lohan is heading for the London stage in a play about the hysteria of Hollywood. Producers announced Thursday that Lohan will make her professional stage debut in September in David Mamets satirical drama Speed-the-Plow. The Mean Girls and Freaky Friday star, who has had well-documented troubles with alcohol, drugs and the law, will take the relatively small but complex role of an ambitious secretary in Mamets drama about two Hollywood producers trying to close a major deal. In the original 1988 New York production the role was played by Madonna. The 27-year-old former child star has had six stints in rehab and several brief periods in jail, and recently appeared in her own reality TV show. Her most recent movie was the universally panned The Canyons.2 detained after Dominican Republic boat capsizesSANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) The U.S. Coast Guard has detained two suspected human smugglers after rescuing 19 Haitian migrants when a boat capsized near the Dominican Republic, killing one person. Coast Guard spokesman Ricardo Castrodad said Thursday that the men in custody are suspected of forcing migrants overboard and causing the boat to capsize. He says one Haitian man died. Authorities say the incident happened Sunday as the boat was headed to the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico. Haitian migrants are increasingly traveling to the Dominican Republic as a jumping off point for attempts to reach Puerto Rico. Dozens have been rescued in nearby waters in recent months. 30%OFFrf ntbbbrENTIRE STOCKPERMANENTLY REDUCED MERCHANDISETAKE AN EXTRA TODAY, JUNE 27 50474579

Nancy Fredrickson told KIRO she was getting something out of her trunk Saturday when she turned around to see a gun in her face. Three teens demanded her keys and jumped in her Kia. They tried but failed to get it to move and then ran away. The 70-year-old was in tears when she called 911, but later laughed at the inept carjackers.

A small but growing number of physicians have begun using these so-called fecal transplants to treat Clostridium difcile, commonly referred to as C-diff, a bacterial infection that causes nausea, cramping and diarrhea. The germ aficts a half-million Americans annually and kills about 15,000 of them. But fecal transplants pose a challenge for the Food and Drug Administration, which has decided to regulate the treatment as an experimental drug. Stool transplants dont t neatly into the agencys standard framework. And while regulators have shown exibility in their approach, some critics say the mere presence of government oversight is discouraging many doctors from offering transplants. Thats led some patients to seek out questionable do-it-your self websites, forums and videos. Most researchers agree that the FDAs concerns are warranted. Patients can contract HIV, hepatitis and other viruses and parasites from fecal matter that is not properly screened. Additionally, there are no long-term studies on potential side effects of stool transplantation. FDA ofcials declined to be interviewed for this story, but said in a written response that the fecal transplantation shows promise in treating C. difcile infection that has not been responsive to other therapies. Indeed, with many patients no longer responding to potent antibiotics, fecal transplants have emerged as an effective therapy against drug-resistant strains of the C-diff superbug. The procedure works because the healthy bacteria found in donors feces can help ght off foreign infections. Were dealing with something that is pretty close to miraculous, says Dr. Lawrence Brandt of New Yorks Monteore Medical Center, who has performed over 200 fecal transplants. Most products reviewed by the FDA spend years in testing before they are submitted to the agency, usually by large drug or medical device developers. Fecal transplants have followed a different path. In recent years, a handful of doctors have published small case studies on their use of stool to treat C-diff, with many reporting cure rates of about 90 percent. In January 2013, the New England Journal of Medicine published the rst rigorous, head-tohead study showing that fecal transplants were superior to antibiotics for patients with recurring C-diff. The FDA announced last May that it would regulate stool transplants as an experimental drug, meaning doctors could only perform transplants under an FDA-approved research application. The so-called investigational new drug application must include detailed information on the drug to be tested, the study design and safeguards to protect patients. Assembling a single application can take months or years, even for large drugmakers.OVERSEEFROM PAGE 1 its lowering their risk for pancreatic cancer, said Risch, a professor of epidemiology at Yale University in New Haven, Ct., in a June 25 telephone interview. For people whose doctors have told them through studying their family history of cancer or having done genetic testing have identied that they are at higher risk for pancreatic cancer, then using aspirin might be benecial as part of a plan to try to lower their risk. Pancreatic cancer is the 10th most-common malignancy in the United States, in terms of new cases each year, but the fourth highest in terms of deaths, the researchers said. This year, more than 46,000 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed and almost 40,000 people in the U.S. will die, according to the National Cancer Institute. Risch said its unclear how aspirin works to lower pancreatic cancer risk as researchers are unsure how the cancer evolves. He said it could be that aspirin reduces cancer risk by lowering inammation. Still, Thursdays results dont mean people should start taking aspirin to prevent pancreatic cancer as the medicine has side effects like gastrointestinal bleeding, he said. The study involved patients from 30 hospitals in Connecticut, including 362 people with pancreatic cancer and 690 people who didnt have the disease. They found that both daily use of low-dose aspirin and daily use of regular aspirin, dened as a dose exceeding 325 milligrams, reduced pancreatic cancer risk. The ndings were stronger in those taking the lower dose, Risch said. The study also found that the longer a person took aspirin, the greater the protection against pancreatic cancer.ASPIRINFROM PAGE 1 OctoberMoments after midnight on Oct. 21, gay couples began exchanging vows in New Jersey as their state became the 14th to allow same-sex marriages. A state judge, in the after math of the U.S. Supreme Court decisions, had ruled in September that New Jerseys provisions for civil unions were not adequate to ensure equality for gay couples. The states politically ambitious Republican governor, Chris Christie, had fought for years against gay marriage, but within hours of the rst weddings he dropped his still-pending appeal of the court ruling.NovemberIn the span of a week, the governors of Hawaii and Illinois signed laws passed by the legislature legalizing same-sex marriage. In Hawaii, tourism ofcials looked ahead to the possibility of becoming a gay wedding mecca. Some activists looked back recalling that Hawaii was an early battleground in the gay marriage debate. The state Supreme Court had ruled in 1993 that gay couples should have marriage rights, triggering a backlash that included congressional passage of the Defense of Marriage Act in 1994. It was a key part of that act forbidding the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages that the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a year ago.DecemberNew Mexico became the 17th state to legalize same-sex marriage on Dec. 19, through a unanimous ruling by the state Supreme Court. Some opponents discussed trying to overturn the ruling with a ballot measure, but that effort gained no traction. The Republican governor, Susana Martinez, urged New Mexicans to respect one another in their discourse and turn their focus to other issues. A day after that ruling, a federal judge in Utah created even bigger waves, striking down the ban on gay marriage that voters in the conservative state had approved in 2004. It was the rst of more than a dozen similar rulings to follow by judges in other states. U.S. District Judge Robert Shelby, a former Army combat engineer, said in his 53-page decision that Utah failed to show how allowing same-sex marriages would harm opposite-sex marriages in any way.MayLate in the afternoon of Friday, May 9, a county circuit judge in Little Rock struck down Arkansas 10-year-old ban on gay marriages. A week passed before Judge Chris Piazzas ruling was stayed by the state Supreme Court, creating an opening in which more than 540 gay couples received mar riage licenses the rst batch of gay weddings in the former Confederacy. In Oregon, U.S. District Judge Michael McShane threw out the states same-sex marriage ban on May 18. Oregon swiftly became the 18th state to allow gay marriage, since top government ofcials had refused to defend the ban. The next day, on the other side of the country, U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III struck down Pennsylvanias marriage law.JuneAs the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Courts marriage rulings approached, marriage-equality lawsuits were pending in all 31 of the states that still barred gays from marrying. On Wednesday, a federal judge in Indiana struck down that states ban. And more notably, the rst ruling was issued at the level of the federal appellate courts. A 2-1 decision from the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with Shelby that Utahs gay-marriage ban was unconstitutional. Its possible that in another year, the issue could be back before the U.S. Supreme Court with the justices facing a clear-cut choice on whether to rule that gay marriage must be allowed in every state.GAYFROM PAGE 1 up, growing from 40.8 in 2010 to 41.5 in 2013. Sumter County had the nations highest percentage of seniors with more than half of its residents older than 65. Hispanics accounted for just under a quarter of Floridas population. The Hispanic population of 4.6 million residents increased by nearly 3 percent from 2012 to 2013.CENSUSFROM PAGE 1 WASHINGTON (AP) Want to reduce the effects of aging? Try oil. The United States population is still getting older, but thats changing in the Great Plains because of the attraction of working in the booming oil and gas industries. The aging baby boom generation helped inch up the median age in the United States last year from 37.5 years to 37.6 years, according to data released Thursday by the Census Bureau. But a closer examination of those numbers shows that seven states Alaska, Hawaii, Montana, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Wyoming actually became younger. Credit for the de-aging of the mainland states between 2012 and 2013 goes to the increase in oil and gas exploration in the Great Plains. The Census Bureau offered no reason for the decrease in the median age in Alaska and Hawaii. Were seeing the demographic impact of two booms, Census Bureau Director John Thompson said. The population in the Great Plains energy-boom states is becoming younger and more male as workers move in seeking employ ment in the oil and gas industry, while the U.S. as a whole continues to age as the youngest of the baby boom generation enter their 50s. Williams County, N.D., which the Census Bureau called the center of the countrys Bakken shale energy boom, had the largest decline in age in the United States 1.6 years. Energy production is one of the fastest-growing industries in the United States. The boom in the U.S. follows the use of new technologies, such as hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, to tap oil and gas reserves. The age changes for the mainland states were mostly minuscule: Montana dropped from 39.962 to 39.898; North Dakota from 35.881 to 35.270; Oklahoma from 36.233 to 36.226; South Dakota from 36.841 to 36.818; and Wyoming from 36.854 to 36.828. Alaska dropped from 33.606 to 33.246, while Hawaii dropped from 38.138 to 37.963. The county with the highest median age was Sumter County, Fla., at 65.5. The county with the lowest median age was Madison, Idaho, at 23.1.Oil boom fuels drop in age in Great Plains states DENVER (AP) Hillary Rodham Clinton is a hardworking champion of women, children and the poor. Or shes a wealthy elitist more comfortable in Davos, Switzerland, than Davenport, Iowa. Which is it? If Clinton decides to again run for president, how voters answer that question could play a role in whether shes able to win the White House. They raised the bar on these issues with Mitt in 2012, said Ron Kaufman, a longtime adviser to former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, whose wealth and business record were targeted by Democrats. Now their candidates for president have to get over the same bar. Perhaps the biggest news to come from the recent launch of Clintons memoir of her time as Secretary of State isnt what the book says about the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, but what shes said about her personal nances while plugging the book. It started with an interview with ABC News in which she said she and husband Bill were dead broke when they left the White House in early 2001, grappling with millions of dollars in legal bills. Then came an interview with The Guardian, in which Clinton appeared to draw a distinction by saying her family paid an ordinary income tax, unlike a lot of people who are truly well off. The couples daughter, Chelsea Clinton, was pulled into the fray when Politico reported that she earned $600,000 a year at NBC News, where she has infrequently appeared as a special correspondent. Those statements dont mesh well with the fact the Clintons are, by almost any measure, quite wealthy, with an annual income that places them solidly among the top 1 percent of Americans. As secretary of state, Clintons nancial disclosure report led in 2012 showed the couple had an estimated net worth between $5 million and $25 million. The former rst lady and New York senator is by no means a billionaire but can command $200,000 or more for a single speech four times what the median American household takes home each year. The University of Nevada, Las Vegas, said Tuesday that Clinton would be paid $225,000 to speak at the university foundations annual dinner in October. Being rich isnt necessarily a political liability for potential presidents. Democrats Franklin Delano Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy both entered politics after privileged upbringings. The last two Republican presidents, George H.W. Bush and his son, George W. Bush, could vacation at the familys Maine seaside compound or at the younger presidents sprawling Texas ranch. Former President Bill Clinton, who defended his wife this week as someone who isnt out of touch, said a presidents wealth should matter less than the policies they seek to promote. I think I had the lowest net worth of any American president in the 20th century when I took ofce. But I still could have been tone deaf, Clinton said, adding: The real issue is, if youve been fortunate enough to be successful, are you now out of touch and insen sitive to the agonizing struggles other people are facing?Clinton struggles in discussing her family wealth aa?aaaQOn 4G?B? c?

Also, starting July 1, private information of people involved with animal research at public research facilities will no longer be public, insur ance companies will be prohibited from denying coverage or increasing rates based on a customers gun ownership, and the states unpaid poet laureate position will no longer be a lifetime appointment. A measure (SB 156) to reduce the cost of motor vehicle registration fees goes into effect Sept. 1, while another 34 bills including one (HB 59) that creates new penalties for those who harm an unborn child at any stage of development be come law on October 1. For the year, lawmakers sent 255 bills to Scott, with just one getting vetoed: SB 392, which would have allowed the Florida Department of Transportation to raise the speed on some highways by 5 mph. Here are highlights of the laws taking effect July 1:Military HB 7015, called the Florida GI Bill, provides university tuition waivers for veterans, pays for military and guard base improvements, is expected to help increase employment opportunities for veterans and allocates $1 million a year to sell the state to veterans. The more than $30 million package requires Visit Florida to spend $1 million a year on marketing aimed at veterans and allocate another $300,000 to a new nonprot corporation, Florida Is For Veterans, Inc. that would be used to encour age veterans to move to Florida and promote the hiring of veterans.

HB 1065 establishes guidelines for suspending licenses or denying applications and sets up background screening for people involved with massage establishments.Florida GI Bill among new laws July 1 TALLAHASSEE (AP) Nearly 30 years after Paul C. Hildwin was convicted of strangling a Hernando County woman, the Florida Supreme Court on Thursday overturned both his conviction and death sentence, saying that new DNA evidence completely discredits the case used by the state. A divided court ruled 5-2 that Hildwin should be given a new trial. The new evidence instead points to the person that Hildwin said had done the crime all along the victims boy friend who was sentenced in 1998 to 20 years for attempted sexual battery of a child. Its a wonderful day but a very long and overdue one, said Nina Morrison, a senior staff attorney with The Innocence Project work ing on the case. Its taken us a decade to get him the justice he deserved. Hildwin had been sentenced to die for killing 42-year-old Vronzettie Cox, whose nude body was found stuffed in the trunk of a car parked in some Hernando County woods in September 1985. She had been strangled with a T-shirt. Prosecutors in 1986 contended DNA found on underwear and a rag located at the crime scene matched blood characteristics of Hildwin. Hildwin had been found with a check and rings belonging to the victim, but he contended he stole the items while Cox was ghting with her boy friend William Haverty. Years later, however, the DNA was tested and it showed that it did not belong to Hildwin. That wasnt enough to win him a new trial so Hildwins lawyers pushed over the last eight years to get the DNA matched against federal and state criminal databases. That showed that the DNA matched Haverty. The court in their ruling said that discovery undermines the case against Hildwin and shows that he is likely to win acquittal if he is placed on trial again. They said a signicant pillar of the case as presented to the jury had collapsed. The state prosecuted the case based on a false theory of scientic evidence that was woven throughout its presentation of evidence and argumentscientic evidence that has now been totally discredited, states the unsigned opinion.Supreme Court overturns death sentence (AP) Brent Kaderli has a wheelchair-accessible van waiting in the driveway, a hospital bed in a spare bedroom and an electric lift thats left unused. If the 30-year-old quadriplegic had his way, hed be living here, in his fathers house, with help from aides. Instead, he is in an institution, hoping each day for a place that feels more like a home. Fifteen years after a landmark Supreme Court ruling that the disabled should be given the choice to live outside nursing homes, mental hospitals and other institutions, its legacies are dueling. Progress has been made in every state to keep more aged and disabled people in their homes and communities, but only half of Medicaid spending goes to such care, with the services routinely denied by a system that favors institutions even though theyre typically more expensive to taxpayers. In the June 22, 1999, decision in Olmstead v. L.C., the justices ruled that unnecessarily segregating people with disabilities in institutions amounts to discrimination under the Americans with Disabilities Act if they can be cared for in more home-like settings. Advocates for the mentally ill, older people and the physically disabled regularly cite the ruling, but it has limitations. It says individuals should be reasonably accommodated, specically noting the resources available to the state, caveats that have made it difcult to assess compliance and that have fueled widely different outcomes around the country. Nationally, the share of Medicaid long-term care spending that went to home and community services was 28 percent at the time of the ruling, according to a Department of Health and Human Services report. By 2012, the latest year for which data were tallied, the gure had risen to 50 percent, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Every state has increased its allocation to non-institutional services, but the allocations range from 78.3 percent of Medicaid spending in Oregon down to 27.4 percent in Mississippi and New Jersey.Checkered progress on disabled care despite rulingFLA. NEAR BOTTOM OF LIST IN FUNDING HOME CARETALLAHASSEE (AP) Fifteen years after a landmark Supreme Court ruling on giving the disabled a choice to live outside institutions, Florida remains near the bottom in terms of progress. The 1999 Olmstead v. L.C. decision says unnecessarily segregating people in mental hospitals, nursing homes and other institutions amounts to discrimination. Advocates for the mentally ill, older people and the disabled cite the ruling in arguing for homeand community-based care. Florida is ranked behind 46 other states and the District of Columbia in its allotment of Medicaid money to non-institutional care. It earmarked about 35 percent of Medicaid long-term care funding to home and community services in 2012, up from about 26 percent a decade ago but well below the national average. | STATE BRIEFSWorker bitten by cobra at Fla. wildlife sanctuaryWEST PALM BEACH (AP) An employee cleaning a snake cage at a Florida wildlife sanctuary was in critical condition after being bitten by a cobra early Thursday, wildlife ofcials said. The woman was bitten on the hand around 5:30 a.m. by a spectacled cobra about 3 feet in length at McCarthys Wildlife Sanctuary in Loxahatchee, said Katie Johnson of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The victims name wasnt released. She was transported to Palms West Hospital in stable condition, according to Capt. Albert Borroto of Palm Beach County Fire Rescue. Later, her condition was listed as critical, Johnson said. An antivenin team from Miami-Dade County was dispatched and arrived around 8 a.m. The employee had a required permit to work with snakes at the privately run sanctuary, which boasts of the coolest collection of snakes around on its website. The site features numerous pictures of its snakes and other creatures it houses. Johnson said wildlife ofcials were probing the bite, but that investigators previously reported the sanctuary as a stellar facility. She said it could be ruled an accident. A snake like this in the wild isnt expecting a human to come and clean its environment, she said.Burglar caught by homeowner watching video feedGREENACRES (AP) A Palm Beach County man caught a burglar in his home from more than 1,000 miles away. Greenacres police say the man was viewing video surveillance of his home on his cellphone when he saw someone enter his home while he was away in New York. He alerted his neighbor, who called police. Ofcers arrested 18-year-old Steven Enrique. Police say he had about $800 worth of jewelry from the home in his possession. The Palm Beach Post reports that Enrique faces burglary charges and is being held in lieu of bond. Its not known if he has an attorney.No criminal charges for officer who kicked boyWEST PALM BEACH (AP) A police ofcer caught on video kicking a restrained boys legs out from under him will not face criminal charges, prosecutors said Wednesday. In dramatic footage that surfaced online last month, Ofcer Jermaine Jones of the Boynton Beach Police is seen approaching the boy, who is standing with his hands restrained, and delivering a sweeping kick that causes the boy to fall to the ground. The state attorney for Palm Beach County investigated the incident, saying in a memo on the case that the boy had been disruptive and profane and had chest-bumped another ofcer, but had not been injured in the incident. Ofcer Jones had the responsibility, along with the other ofcers present, to maintain control of the scene, the memo said. The action taken by Ofcer Jones controlled the juvenile and was not done merely with malicious intent. You Cant Control the World, But You Can Control Your Decisions.

The sports video-camera maker began trading at $28.65, 19 percent above the price it set late Wednesday, and shares prices quickly moved to $30 and higher. GoPro had priced shares at $24, the high end of the $21 to $24 range offered in its IPO lings, fending off pressures to raise the amount. With 17.8 million shares available, the stock was reportedly 20 times oversubscribed.Jobless claims decreased last week to 312,000WASHINGTON (Bloomberg) Fewer Americans led applications for unemployment benets last week, a sign of steady progress in the labor market. Jobless claims fell by 2,000 to a one-month low of 312,000 in the week ended June 21, the Labor Department reported Thursday in Washington. The median forecast of economists surveyed by Bloomberg called for 310,000 initial claims. Dismissals are hovering just above their pre-reces sion lows and hiring has picked up as companies grow condent the economy will snap back from the worst contraction in ve years. Employment thats on pace for its best year since 1999 will need to spark faster wage growth for consumer spending to accelerate.Consumer spending climbs less than forecastWASHINGTON (Bloomberg) Consumer spending grew less than forecast in May as Americans used gains in income to shore up household nances. Purchases, which account for about 70 percent of the economy, climbed 0.2 percent after being little changed in April, Commerce Department gures showed Thursday in Washington. The median forecast of 76 economists in a Bloomberg survey called for a 0.4 percent rise. Incomes advanced 0.4 percent and the saving rate increased to an eight-month high. Thursdays report dims the outlook for a pickup in growth after gures Wednesday showed consumer spending in the rst quarter grew at the weakest pace in ve years. NEW YORK (AP) Banks and other nancial rms tugged the stock market slightly lower Thursday as a mixed batch of economic reports and earnings results gave investors little reason to push the market up. Barclays sank following news that New Yorks attorney general sued the British bank, claiming that it favored high-frequency traders over large institutions in its private-trading platform, known as a dark pool. It was only the third loss in 10 trading days for the Standard & Poors 500 index, which closed at its latest record high just under a week ago, on June 20. Many investors have been saying stocks could be due for a pullback given their rapid rise recently. Phil Orlando, chief equity strategist at Federated Investors, said a short slump in the summer months wouldnt come as a surprise. I fully expect to see a hiccup here, but I wouldnt get too worried about it, he said. Its probably going to set us up for a nice end-of-the-year rally. The Standard & Poors 500 index sank 2.31 points, or 0.1 per cent, to close at 1,957.22, while the Nasdaq composite index fell 0.71 of a point to 4,379.05. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 21.38 points, or 0.1 per cent, to close at 16,846.13. Two economic reports out early Thursday offered little encour agement. In one, the government said the number of Americans seeking unemployment benets declined last week, another sign that an economic slowdown earlier this year hasnt caused employers to shed workers. In a separate report, the government said consumer spending inched up 0.2 percent last month, half the increase that economists had predicted. Among the stocks making big moves, Bed Bath & Beyond sank 7 percent, the biggest loss in the S&P 500, after the retailer posted quarterly earnings and sales late Wednesday that fell short of analysts estimates.Stocks head lower on Wall Street, led by banks 0 0

Increasingly, the Shiite al-Malikis former allies believe he cannot lead an inclusive government that can draw minority Sunnis away from support for the ghters who have swept over a large swath of Iraq as they head toward the capital, Baghdad. In a further sign of Iraqs unraveling along sectarian lines, a bombing on Thursday killed 12 people in a Shiite neighborhood of Baghdad that houses a revered shrine, and police found the bullet-riddled bodies of eight Sunnis south of the capital. Most crucially, though, backing for al-Maliki is weakening with his most important ally, neighbor ing Iran. A senior Iranian general who met with Shiite politicians in Iraq during a 10-day visit this month returned home with a list of potential prime minister candidates for Irans leadership to consider, several senior Iraqi Shiite politicians who have knowledge of the generals meetings told The Associated Press. Irans supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, wants al-Maliki to remain in his post, at least for now, the politicians said, but Irans moderate president, Hassan Rouhani, believes al-Maliki must go or else Iraq will fragment. Khamenei holds nal say in all state matters in Iran, but the politicians expressed doubt he would insist on al-Maliki against overwhelming rejection of him by Iraqs Shiite parties. The general, Ghasem Soleimani, is expected to return within days to inform Iraqi politicians of Tehrans favorite, they said, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss the internal deliberations. Irans Shiite cleric-led government succeeded in herding reluctant Shiite parties into backing al-Maliki for a second term four years ago, and its leverage over Iraqs Shiite political establishment has grown signicantly since the 2011 withdrawal of U.S. troops after an eightyear presence. Non-Arab and mostly Shiite, Iran has found in majority Shiite Iraq a convenient vehicle to extend its sphere of regional inuence to the heart of the Middle East. Irans leverage in Iraq also gives it a trump card against its Sunni rivals in the Gulf region, where powerhouse Saudi Arabia, for example, has traditionally viewed Tehran with suspicion. The United States and its allies are pushing for the creation of a government that can draw support among Iraqs Sunni minority, which has been alienated by al-Maliki, seen as a ercely partisan Shiite. British Foreign Secretary William Hague, meeting with al-Maliki in Baghdad on Thursday, told a news conference that we believe the urgent priority must be to form an inclusive government that can command the support of all Iraqis and work to stop terrorists and their terrible crimes. Hagues trip follows a visit by U.S Secretary of State John Kerry, who earlier this week delivered a similar message.Iraqi Shiites pushing for al-Malikis removal AP PHOTOAn Iraqi woman who ed her village holds her daughter near a Kurdish checkpoint, in the Khazer area between the Iraqi city of Mosul and the Kurdish city of Irbil, northern Iraq, Thursday. JERUSALEM (AP) Israel on Thursday identied two well-known Hamas operatives in the West Bank as the central suspects in the recent disappearance of three Israeli teenagers, in the rst sign of progress in a frantic two-week search for the missing youths. Israeli and Palestinian ofcials said the two men have been missing since the teenagers disappeared, and that a large manhunt was underway. In a statement, Israels Shin Bet security service identied the men as Marwan Qawasmeh and Amer Abu Aisheh. It said both men are activists from the Hamas militant group in the West Bank city of Hebron, near where the youths disappeared on June 12. Israel has accused Hamas of kidnapping the three teens, who disappeared as they were hitchhiking home. But until Thursday, it had provided no evidence to support the claim. It said both Qawasmeh, who was born in 1985, and Abu Aisha, who was born in 1981, have served time in Israeli prisons. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who publicly condemned the kidnapping in a high-prole Arab gathering in Saudi Arabia, to end a unity government he formed with the backing of Hamas earlier this month. I now expect President Abbas, who said important things in Saudi Arabia, to stand by those words (and) to break his pact with the Hamas terrorist organization that kidnaps children and calls for the destruction of Israel, he said. Netanyahu has made similar calls throughout the crisis, saying Abbas cannot claim to be seeking peace while also having an alliance with a group committed to Israels destruction. Hamas, which Israel and the West consider a terrorist group, has no formal role in the government, and Abbas has said the Cabinet remains committed to his policies. Following the disappear ance of the teens, Israel launched its broadest ground operation in the West Bank in nearly a decade, rounding up nearly 400 Palestinians, most of them Hamas activists. The search for the teens Eyal Yifrah, 19, Gilad Shaar, 16, and Naftali Fraenkel, a 16-year-old with dual Israeli-American citizenship has become an obsession in Israel, with intensive media coverage and prayer vigils. Hamas ofcials in Hebron conrmed the two suspects were members, and said Israeli troops have targeted the mens homes since the beginning of the operation. The ofcials, speaking on condition of anonymity because of fears for their safety, said the brothers and wives of the two men had been taken into custody, though the women have since been released.Israel identifies suspects in alleged kidnapping ONLY ONa t t i i ,` i j i same /p66156 ..76%8i? 8ontres /?ffIlk "n.I 70155: J ..!. 1)ttaw\vr+ Toronto ?83159?7 ..

Perhaps center back Omar Gonzalez summed it up best after the U.S. booked a spot in the Round of 16 in the World Cup despite losing to Germany 1-0 at Arena Pernambuco. Last games draw felt like a loss and todays loss felt like a win, he said, referring to the U.S. allowing a last-second goal in a draw at 2 with Portugal on Sunday night. Its pretty weird. But our mission from the beginning was to get to the next round and job well done. While it was hardly pretty, the Americans (1-1-1, four points) did accomplish their mission in Group G, nishing second to Germany (2-0-1, seven) as they survived the Group of Death by reaching the knockout round in consecutive World Cups for the rst time. They edged Portugal (1-1-1, four) on goal differential, zero to minus three. In a match played at the same time, the Portuguese defeated Ghana (0-2-1, one), 2-1, as Cristiano Ronaldo connected on the winner. Its huge for us getting out of this group that everybody said, You have no chance, U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said. We really want to prove a point. The U.S. did not earn a point Thursday, but they found a way to ght another day. Once the group is done, another tournament starts, Klinsmann said. Whoever it is, well be prepared. That would be Group H winner Belgium (3-0-0), which defeated Algeria 1-0 Thursday and will meet the U.S. in Salvador Tuesday.

LONDON Uncle Tonis reaction said it all. This one meant a lot to him and to the tennis player he coaches, his No. 1-ranked nephew Rafael Nadal, who was in a tough spot Thursday, one point from trailing two sets to none against the same guy he lost to in the same stadium, same round two years ago at Wimbledon. As the younger Nadal began turning things around, evening the match at a set apiece on his opponents double-fault, the older Nadal dispensed with any sense of decorum, leaping out his Centre Court seat, punching the air, and shouting Vamos! From there, the ultimate result quickly became apparent. Nadal came back to beat 52ndranked Lukas Rosol of the Czech Republic 4-6, 7-6 (6), 6-4, 6-4, returning to the third round at the All England Club for the rst time since 2011.Nadal finally gets revenge vs. Rosol TENNIS: WimbledonBy HOWARD FENDRICHASSOCIATED PRESSNADAL | 6 TODAY ON COURTMEN: No. 1 Novak Djokovic vs. Gilles Simon, No. 3 Andy Murray vs. Roberto Bautista Agut, No. 6 Tomas Berdych vs. Marin Cilic WOMEN: No. 2 Li Na vs. Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, No. 3 Simona Halep vs. Lesia Tsurenko, No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska vs. Michelle Larcher De Brito TODAYS TV: 7 a.m., ESPNWiggins goes to Cavs as top pickBy BRIAN MAHONEYASSOCIATED PRESSNEW YORK With Andrew Wiggins at No. 1, it was a big night for Canada and Kansas. And it better be the right one for the Cavaliers. Cleveland went north of the border to open the NBA draft for the second straight year Thursday night, hoping Wiggins works out better than Anthony Bennett. Thrilled to go first and even happier when Jayhawks teammate Joel Embiid went two picks later, Wiggins beamed in his black tuxedo jacket with a white floral pattern. A thousand thoughts are going through my head right now, Wiggins said. Its a dream come true. Bennett was injured last summer, came into the season out of shape and made no impact, one of the reasons the Cavs were back in this spot again. But Wiggins seems a much more ready product after averaging a Kansas freshman-record 17.1 points.

Punta Gorda Speedway shut down early in 2013, and the track now called Three Palms Speedway has yet to reopen since being sold to ownership. Many drivers who previously called the track home make the trek to DeSoto Speedway in Bradenton to continue racing. Others, however, chose to leave the sport. I sold my car and bought a boat, Derrick Nielsen, a Lee County resident, said. Im not gonna drive an hourand-a-half or two hours to Bradenton or an hour the other way to Hendry County, which doesnt pay out any money for racing. Nielsen uses his new boat to go shing, and Cape Coral resident Bill Vandevender a regular at Punta Gorda Speedway has also taken up shing as a hobby in place of racing. Three Palms Speedway announced August 30 as a grand opening date, but still looks bare to passers-by. Andy Haase, the tracks vice president of corporate sales and marketing, said that should change when new bleachers and fencing are installed within the next month. The tracks previous owner took the bleachers and fencing and caused other damage to equipment before leaving amid a dispute with the Charlotte County Airport Authority last year. The track has been open for Drift car and Go-Kart events for a few months. Its also held open practices, which Port Charlotte resident Richard Nelson, a champion from the Punta Gorda Speedway days, has made use of between trips to Bradenton. If they get it open and get everything running, Ill be back, Nelson said. Other drivers are skeptical. Im gonna take a wait-and-see approach to see how (the new owners) handle things, Vandevender said. Im not gonna run back over there just because its open. I really want to see how they handle things before I spend my money there. Everybody I talk to seems to have the same attitude, theyre gonna take a wait-and-see approach because its a frustrating deal.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or zmiller@sun-herald.com.Track closure affects drivers differently By ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITER AUTO RACING: Three Palms SpeedwaySome stop racing, others nd new tracks or hobbies | QUICK HITSNFL WELCOMES NEW GROUP OF OFFICIALSNEW YORK (AP) The NFL hired 13 new ofcials for the 2014 season and promoted three veterans to referee. First-year ofcial Brad Allen will join the NFL as a referee from the Atlantic Coast Conference, where he has been a referee for the past nine seasons. Allen is the rst to go to the referee position in his rst NFL season since Tommy Bell in 1962. Allen has refereed several major bowl games, including the 2012 Rose Bowl and 2014 Sugar Bowl. Allen replaces veteran referee Mike Carey, who will join CBS Sports as a rules analyst. Veteran NFL ofcials Ronald Torbert and Craig Wrolstad are new refer ees in 2014, replacing retired referees Scott Green and Ron Winter. Wrolstad has spent the past 11 seasons as a eld judge while Torbert has worked the past four as a side judge. The Washington Redskins signed Jerry Rice Jr., son of the Hall of Fame receiver. Rice was an undrafted free agent out of UNLV. He caught 11 passes for 86 yards and one touchdown last year in his only season with the Rebels.COLLEGE FOOTBALLOklahomas Stoops gets a raise: Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops salary will jump to $5.25 million for the upcoming season.

His income from private funds will increase from $3,725,000 to $4,025,000. Defensive coordinator Mike Stoops, Bobs brother, got a raise, too.

The five-time national champion finished in 2 minutes, 32.13 seconds in the qualifying rounds, only seven weeks before shes scheduled to give birth to her first child. That Montano finished last in her heat didnt matter one bit to the crowd gathered at Hornet Stadium. Trailing the lead pack by more than 120 meters for most of the race, Montano received a rousing ovation as she finished her first lap and the cheering grew louder when she finally crossed the finish line.AUTO RACINGBusch stays perfect in truck races: In Sparta, Ky., Kyle Busch made it 5 for 5 this season in the Camping World Truck Series, holding off Kyle Busch Motorsports teammate Darrell Wallace Jr. at Kentucky Speedway.

The Americans had one shot on goal and that was by Alejandro Bedoya in the second half. But they persevered behind some usual and unlikely heroes. Jermaine Jones, who feared that he broke his nose in a second-half collision with Bedoya, played his normal hardedged game at both ends. Goalkeeper Tim Howard was a rock, making eight saves, although he could not stop Thomas Mueller from scoring his fourth goal of the Cup in the 54th minute. Mueller converted a rebound of a shot off a two-handed save by Howard and he red a precise right-footed shot between defenders from 20 yards into the lower right corner. As I was closing down Mueller, I decided not to slide, Matt Besler said. I tried to stand up and make myself big. He hit to a spot where no one could get to it. Then there was Gonzalez, a surprise starter in place of Geoff Cameron, whose blunder led to Portugals rst goal Sunday night. Gonzalez, who has been hampered with a left knee injury, acquitted himself well, heading at least three dangerous balls out of harms way, including a left-wing cross that was targeted for the head of Mesuit Ozil in the 15th minute. Omar absolutely did terric, Besler said. Finally after four minutes of injury time, referee Ravshan Irmatov blew his nal whistle to end the match. The Americans had to wait a minute before the Portugal result became ofcial as the scoreboard ashed the nal score. The fans cheered and the American supporters chanted, USA! USA! The players hugged each other on the eld. Besler said he felt joy, relief. Were proud of what weve accomplished, he added. Were still hungry. Besler and his teammates will get a chance to whet their appetites Tuesday against Belgium.LIFEFROM PAGE 1 SAO PAULO Reduced to 10 men for more than half the match, Belgium still edged South Korea 1-0 to nish on top of Group H and eliminate the last Asian team from the World Cup on Thursday. With a late goal yet again, Belgium made the difference in the 78th minute when defender Jan Vertonghen followed up a shot from teenage striker Divock Origi and tapped in the rebound. We knew all games were going to be tough, said Belgium coach Marc Wilmots. But even with 10 men, we still pushed forward. These guys are really hungry. After three narrow victories and precious little beautiful play, Belgium will now play the United States in Salvador on Tuesday. Portugal 2, Ghana 1: In Brasilia, Brazil, Cristiano Ronaldo finally made his mark at the World Cup but it came too late to spare Portugal an early exit from Brazil. The world player of the year broke his scoring drought at the tournament with an 80th-minute winner against Ghana. That result left the Portuguese level on four points with United States in Group G but with an inferior goal difference to the second-place Americans, who lost 1-0 to Germany in Recife. Ghana also was eliminated, finishing bottom of the group. Algeria 1, Russia 1: In Curitaba, Brazil, Algeria qualified for the World Cup knockout stages for the first time, with Islam Slimanis heading in an equalizer in the 60th minute to give his team enough competition points to reach the second round. Algeria placed second in Group H behind Belgium with four points, meaning it will meet Germany in the Round of 16. The feat prompted mass celebra tions on the pitch among the players, and had coach Vahid Halilhodzic shaking his head with disbelief. Suarez banned for four months for biting incident: FIFA banned Uruguay striker Luis Suarez from all football activities for four months for biting an opponent at the World Cup, ruling him out of the rest of the tournament. The ban also covers Uruguays next nine international games, which goes beyond the next four months and rules him out of next years Copa America. FIFA also fined the Liverpool striker 100,000 Swiss francs ($112,000). The ban is effective immediately, meaning Suarez will miss Uruguays round-of-16 game against Colombia on Saturday.Belgium completes sweep of Group HBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WORLD CUP ROUNDUPSuarez suspended for biting Italian playerAP PHOTONacer Chadli is congratulated by a teammates following Belgiums 1-0 victory over South Korea to clinch rst place in Group H.

The Sun /Friday, June 27, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 Crabs winless in FSL 2nd halfSTAFF REPORT JUPITER Reinaldo Lopez gave up seven earned runs over two innings and the Charlotte Stone Crabs lost their 10th consecutive game. They remain winless in the second half of the Florida State League season. Palm Beach used six singles, two fielders choices and a double over the third and fourth innings, and took advantage of a pair of walks and an error to put up all the runs it would need in a 7-3 victory on Thursday. Zach Cooper, making his Stone Crabs debut after pitching in one game for the Gulf Coast League Rays this season, came on in relief of Lopez. Cooper tossed 223 scoreless innings and didnt allow a hit while striking out one and walking one. Another bright spot for the Crabs was Patrick Leonard, who hit his teamleading 11th home run of the season in the fifth. He ranks third in the FSL in homers behind Adam Brett Walker (14) of Fort Myers, and David Washington (12) of Palm Beach.CARDINALS 7, STONE CRABS 3Charlotte AB R H RBI BB SO AVG Coyle 2B 4 0 0 0 0 1 .247 Goetzman LF 4 1 1 0 0 1 .250 Leonard 1B 3 1 2 1 1 0 .281 OConner C 3 0 0 1 0 1 .253 Goeddel 3B 4 0 0 0 0 1 .254 Reginatto SS 4 1 3 0 0 0 .293 Sale RF 4 0 1 0 0 1 .215 Bailey DH 4 0 0 0 0 1 .222 Ridings CF 3 0 2 1 0 1 .270 Totals 33 3 9 3 1 7 .254 Palm Beach AB R H RBI BB SO AVG Tilson CF 4 1 2 0 0 1 .312 Vargas 3B 4 0 1 3 0 0 .248 Caldwell 2B 4 1 1 2 0 1 .263 Voit 1B 3 0 1 1 1 2 .319 Mejia SS 4 0 0 0 0 0 .282 Martini RF 3 1 0 0 1 1 .243 Garcia DH 2 1 1 0 2 0 .223 Bosco LF 4 1 1 0 0 1 .316 Rosenberg C 4 2 2 1 0 1 .263 Totals 32 7 9 7 4 7 .268 Charlotte 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 1 0 3 9 1 Palm Beach 0 0 3 4 0 0 0 0 X 7 9 0 E: Sale (4).

Vanderbilt coach Tim Corbin gured last year was his baseball programs best chance to win its rst national championship. It was the 2014 team that got the job done, starting four sophomores and two freshmen in the everyday lineup and rely ing on a young pitching staff. There was never a crack in our strong foundation, Corbin said Thursday. This group grew together. They were consumed with one another the last month and a half. We started off the SEC 7-8 and having played three series at home. We were about to go through the gauntlet and I remember telling my coaches and my wife that I was concerned. The next thing you know, we nish the SEC 11-4, we started winning some close games and our pitching really started to grow. The Commodores nished 51-21 after beating Virginia in a three-game College World Series nals. They won the schools rst national championship in a mens sport and joined LSU (six), South Carolina (two) and Georgia (one) as Southeastern Conference teams to win baseball titles. The contributions seemed to come from everyone. Left elder Bryan Reynolds was a freshman All-American after leading the team with a .338 batting average and 54 RBIs. Second baseman Dansby Swanson, limited to 11 games as a freshman because of injuries, batted .333 and was named the CWS Most Outstanding Player. Third baseman Tyler Campbell, a sophomore who came to Omaha with 15 at-bats in 14 games, was the feel-good story of the CWS. He made the all-tournament team after taking over for Xavier Turner, who was ruled ineligible last Friday for violating NCAA rules. Junior center elder John Norwood, a backup his rst two years in the program, hit his third homer of the season, and Vanderbilts rst since May 16, to break an eighth-inning tie in Wednesdays 3-2, title-clinching win. Sophomores Carson Fulmer and Walker Buehler and freshmen Hayden Stone and John Kilichowski turned in clutch pitching perfor mances along with junior Adam Ravenelle. I looked back last year, my rst day here, and I knew that I got into something very, very special, Fulmer said. I look at all my teammates as my brothers. I look at coach, our pitching coach, I look at them as father gures. Words cant describe this experience. Its something that weve always dreamed of doing as a team, and we nally accomplished it.

The league sent its top draft prospects to all the tourist areas for photos and interviews, from the Rocky statue, to the baseball stadium, and, yes, the obligatory cheesesteak stand. But much like the ctional ghter who conquered the odds, only one standout can stand tall as the No. 1 overall pick. And with the rst pick of the 2014 draft, the Florida Panthers select ... Well, unlike some of the recent drafts, this one remained a mystery heading into tonights draft at Philadelphias Wells Fargo Center. There is no consensus No. 1 pick and the Panthers have plenty of options to help try and turn the franchise into a consistent playoff team. Panthers general manager Dale Tallon, however, hasnt been shy about his willingness to trade the No. 1 pick for the right price. Florida has been stockpiling prospects since Tallon became general manager in May 2010, and the GM wants his young team to grow together. The top candidates for No. 1 include: Kingston Frontenacs center Samuel Bennett, Barrie Colts defenseman Aaron Ekblad, Kootenay Ice center Sam Reinhart and Prince Albert Raiders center Leon Draisaitl. Ekblad, Bennett, Reinhart, Draisaitl, Oshawa left wing Michael Dal Colle, and Sarnia defenseman Michael DeAngelo all were invited to tour Philadelphia this week and check out the sights. Theyd all rather check out a No. 1 jersey with a name on the back tonight. If the Panthers dont trade the pick, Ekblad just might be the one. The Sabres have the second pick, and Edmonton; Calgary; N.Y. Islanders; Vancouver; Carolina; Toronto; Winnipeg; and Anaheim complete the top 10. I believe that Ekblad is going to go 1, Sabres general manager Tim Murray said. Then we pick who we have left, the next guy on our list. If he doesnt go 1, Id be surprised, I guess. And I guess well cross that bridge when we come to it.Panthers have plenty of options with No. 1 pick NHL NOTEBOOKBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NHL DRAFTWHAT: Round 1 WHEN: Today, 7 p.m. WHERE: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia TV: NBCSN TOP 10 PICKS : 1.

Anaheim (from Ottawa) TAMPA BAYS FIRSTROUND PICKS: Nos. 19, 28 NEW YORK After a year of record revenues, the NHL salary cap is going up again. The exact gure for the 2014-15 hasnt been set yet, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said Thursday following a meeting of the leagues board of governors, but he hoped it would be worked out with the players association in time for the start of the two-day entry draft Friday in Philadelphia. The nal number is expected to be in the high $60 millions or low $70 millions. That gives general managers a guideline as they head into the draft and the free-agent shopping season that begins on Tuesday. We hope to have a mutual understanding as to what the cap will be within the next day, hopefully at the latest, Bettman said. Its something that obviously we do in conjunction with the players association. There have been ongo ing meetings, but our goal would be to move this as quickly as possible. But we have a dance partner and we want to make sure the music is playing appropriately and were both hearing the same things. Teams that have large amounts of cap space can already make their offseason plans, whether it be trades or free-agent signings, without knowing the nal cap number. I expect to see a lot more trades than we normally see, Minnesota Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher said. Well see a lot more trades, in my opinion, that dont even involve draft picks. Hockey trades. Theres so much parity in the league, everyone is trying to get ahead. I think some teams look at free agency as not an ideal route. I think there will be a lot of movement.Record revenues to raise salary cap NHLBy IRA PODELLASSOCIATED PRESS and I had like 21 outeld assists that year. Someone came up to me and said, Hey man, you play the outeld like an outlaw. I said, Wow, that has a nice little ring to it. So I was like, Hey, you can call me that if you want. So from there, it kind of is self-proclaimed. That Kiermaier cant recall who the person was, or when or where the conversation took place, only fuels the intrigue. Inelder Cole Figueroa, who has taken the ribbing public on Twitter, says I cant throw him under the bus again. Though with some prodding, he allows, If Kevin air quotes made up end air quotes the nickname, it ts him perfectly, so I give him a break. If it was something kind of cheesy, Id rip on him some more. But its a great nickname, youve got to admit that. Indeed. In a month of playing somewhat regularly since his latest call-up, Kiermaier has shown to be quite the thief with a series of dazzling, highlights-worthy, howdhe-do-that plays to rob, steal and pilfer opponents of hits and runs. And combining that elite-level defense with incessant hustle, aggressive baserunning and better-than-expected hitting, Kiermaier, 24, is starting to make a name for himself as well. Hes done a lot of good work, manager Joe Maddon said. Kiermaier has been compared to ex-Ray Sam Fuld for the energy he brings, and Maddon went further, suggesting former Angels All-Star Darin Erstad. Kiermaier a 31stround draft pick who made an unexpected debut in last seasons Game 163 is honored and humbled by such attention, but nowhere near satised. Its cool to be compared to some of these guys, but at the same time I want to be known as the only Kevin Kiermaier in baseball because I play 100 percent every day and I promise you wont nd someone who plays harder than me, he said. I kind of make my own legacy by letting people know who watch me for the rst time that the kid is doing it the right way. So thats what Im going to do. Thats the only way I know how to play. Sometimes it might be a little reckless, I might take some risks other guys dont. But thats kind of how of Ive been my whole life, and I feel like thats part of what got me here to the big leagues, and Im here to stay. Given the opportunity to play regularly with Wil Myers injury, Kiermaier said he has a simple primary goal on and off the eld: My main thing this year is that I dont want to look like a rookie. There are some things Kiermaier has already impressed Maddon with, starting with his max effort running the bases, the quality of his at-bats and the overall tenacity with which he plays. And there are some things Kiermaier has to improve on, such as better routes and decision-making in the outeld, becoming more comfortable bunting for hits and using the whole eld with his left-handed swing.OUTLAWFROM PAGE 1 rff rfntbbnn rfrfntttbfb bnr fbntbbrf brffntnb nnrffntnb fn r 50469690 4HERON CREEK--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Whit Wyatt pitched the rst 16 innings for the Dodgers. Both clubs played a 26-inning tie in 1920 at the same Braves Field. 1980 The Los Angeles Dodgers Jerry Reuss pitched a no-hitter against the San Francisco Giants in an 8-0 victory at Candle stick Park. The only player to reach base was Jack Clark in the rst inning on a throwing error by shortstop Bill Russell. 1986 San Francisco rookie Robby Thompson set a major league record when he was caught stealing four times in the Giants 7-6, 12-inning victory over the Cin cinnati Reds. Catcher Bo Diaz threw out Thompson in the fourth, sixth, ninth and 11th innings. For Wednesdays late linescores, see Scoreboard, Page 5 | BASEBALL SCOREBOARD MIAMI A Miami judge has denied a motion by Los Angeles Dodgers star Yasiel Puig to dismiss a lawsuit led by a Cuban man blaming the player for his imprisonment and torture on the communist island. In the lawsuit, Miguel Angel Corbacho Daudinot claims he was falsely accused by Puig of involvement in human trafcking and was subjected to torture in Cuban prisons. U.S. District Judge Kathleen Williams denied Puigs request this week and set a trial date for November. Puig denied the allegations. His attorney said in court papers that Corbacho Daudinots torture allegations arent sufcient under U.S. law. Other lawsuit lings have detailed Puigs eventual defection out of Cuba by smugglers who took him to Mexico and eventually to the U.S. amid threats over unpaid debts. McCourt wins suit against his ex-wife: In Los Angeles, a judge issued a tentative ruling that the ex-wife of former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt must reimburse him $1.9 million in legal fees after she unsuccessfully contested their divorce settlement. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon issued his decision Tuesday. Gordon rejected Jamie McCourts claims that her husband shortchanged the value of the Dodgers, which sold in 2012 for more than $2 billion. Frank McCourts attorneys sought repayment of nearly $2 million in fees spent opposing the motion. Jamie McCourts lawyers argued in April the fees were excessive. Darvish unlikely to pitch in All-Star game: Texas ace Yu Darvish said he would likely opt for sightseeing over pitching if hes selected to the AL All-Star team for the third consecutive season. Darvish is scheduled to make three more starts before the break, including one that would come two days before the July 15 All-Star game. He answered No in English when asked if hed be willing to pitch in the All-Star game if he stays on that schedule. Around the league: The Chicago White Sox designated left-handed pitcher Scott Downs for assignment and recalled left-hander Eric Surkamp from Triple-A Charlotte. The New York Mets activated centerfielder Juan Lagares from the 15-day disabled list.Judge will hear Puig lawsuit MLB NOTEBOOKFormer Dodgers owner wins suit of his ownBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ARLINGTON, Texas Rick Porcello pitched a three-hitter for his rst career shutout and 10th victory this season as the Detroit Tigers beat the skidding Texas Rangers 6-0 Thursday night for their seventh consecutive victory.

Dominguez help the Astros avoid a series sweep, snapping an 0-for-23 skid with his two-out shot to leftcenter field off Mike Minor (2-5) that made it 5-1 in the fifth inning. Pirates 5, Mets 2: In Pittsburgh, hot-hitting rookie Gregory Polanco homered and drove in four runs, resurgent right-hander Vance Worley pitched seven innings, and Pittsburgh beat New York.

He shot a 3-over 74 but said he felt fantastic.BETHESDA, Md. Tiger Woods was back on the PGA Tour for the rst time in more than three months Thursday and said he felt fantastic. He was talking about his back, not his game. In his rst tournament since March 31 back surgery, Woods made seven bogeys in a round of 3-over 74 that put him eight shots behind Greg Chalmers and in danger of missing the cut for the rst time in two years. Only 19 players had a higher score. I made so many little mistakes, Woods said. So I played a lot better than the score indicated. Congressional had a lot to do with that. The course played tougher than it did for the U.S. Open three years ago, mainly because of the dense rough. Chalmers kept in play for much of his round, dropping only one shot and nishing with three straight birdies. He had only 25 putts in building a one-shot lead over Ricky Barnes and Freddie Jacobson. Defending champion Bill Haas and U.S. Open runner-up Erik Compton were two shots behind. Woods wasnt the only player who struggled. He played with Jordan Spieth, who had a 74, and Jason Day, who shot a 73. Three tied for Senior Players Championship lead: In Pittsburgh, Joe Durant, David Frost and Doug Garwood sprinted to the early lead at the Senior Players Championship, shooting 6-under 64 at defenseless Fox Chapel. Still drying out after days of steady rain, the par-70 layout in suburban Pittsburgh offered little resistance. Frost and Garwood breezed through their rounds without making a bogey, and Durant offset his lone bogey with seven birdies. Bernhard Langer, Corey Pavin, Larry Mize, Steve Pate, Olin Browne, Bart Bryant, Peter Fowler and Wes Short Jr. shot 65. Colin Montgomerie, the Senior PGA winner last month, opened with a 5-under 30 on the front nine before fading to a 69. Defending champion Kenny Perry, looking for his fourth major title in the last year, had a 70. He won the Tradition last month. Kaymer seven strokes back after one round: In Cologne, Germany, Englands Danny Willett and Spains Rafa Cabrera-Bello shot 8-under 64 to share the lead in the BMW International Open, while local favorite Martin Kaymer opened with a 71 at Gut Laerchenhof in his first round since winning the U.S. Open.

Page 6 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, June 27, 2014 I didnt want to lose another time against a guy like this, Toni Nadal said. I dont like to lose against a player I nd (unprofessional). In 2012s second round, Rosol was ranked 100th, and Nadal was on a streak of having reached the nal in ve consecutive Wimbledon appearances. The big-swinging, 6-foot-5 Rosol played an unrepentantly risky style that day, aiming for lines and putting shots where he wanted, pulling off a ve-set victory. Rosol engaged in some gamesmanship then, including moving around while waiting to receive serves and, Toni said Thursday, making noise as Rafael was hitting shots. After the rematch, Rosol complained Nadal took too much time between points and lamented that the chair umpire didnt intervene. Said Toni about Rosol: Its normal that we want to win, but its true that for me, its worse to lose with him than with another guy. Rafael, for his part, said he wasnt thinking about two years ago. Still, for nearly two full sets, it was hard not to recall that match because Rosol played similarly, hitting hard, at strokes that didnt miss. When Rosol broke for a 3-2 lead in the second set with a crosscourt backhand, he had a 24-9 edge in winners. Nadal broke back to 4-all, whirling around and throwing a celebratory uppercut, but again was in trouble at 6-5 in the tiebreaker. On that set point, Nadal whipped a winner he called a perfect forehand for that moment to get to 6-all. Two points later, Rosol plopped a second serve into the net for a double-fault that ceded the set, and said later: In the end, he was more lucky. Nadal probably would not agree with that assessment. He did agree about the signicance of that sequence. The difference maybe is one point, said Nadal, who collected two of his 14 Grand Slam titles at Wimbledon but exited in the rst round last year. Maybe if I lose that set point in the second set if that forehand down the line went out maybe (I) will be here with a loss. Instead, he raised the level of his play. He won 22 consecutive points on his serve, and moved better, bending so low his knee touched the grass on backhands. Nadal broke for a 2-1 lead in the third set, and again for a 1-0 lead in the fourth. If I had played the rst set the way I did the last two, I would have won it, too, I think, Nadal said.NADALFROM PAGE 1 | TENNIS SCOREBOARDWimbledonAt The All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club, London Purse: $42.5 million (Grand Slam) Surface: Grass-Outdoor Singles Men Second Round Milos Raonic (8), Canada, def.

After making Canada the only country besides the U.S. to have consecutive No. 1 picks, Wiggins slipped on a maroon Cleveland hat, hugged his supporters and went on stage to shake hands with Commissioner Adam Silver, who was calling the first round for the first time since replacing David Stern. Milwaukee followed with another freshman, Duke forward Jabari Parker, who on Wednesday disputed that he was out of shape for his workout with Cleveland and performed poorly. Some consider him the more NBA-ready player after an All-American season for the Blue Devils, and getting to play in Milwaukee puts him near his family in Chicago. Im just very optimistic, Parker said. If it was 1, 2, put me at 60, just getting that opportunity, getting that chance of being in the NBA. Embiid went third to Philadelphia, drawing loud cheers from the many red-and-blue dressed 76ers fans who made the trip to Barclays Center in Brooklyn, as well as from Philadelphia guard Michael Carter-Williams, last seasons Rookie of the Year who was sitting on the arena floor level. The 76ers had two top-10 picks and could afford to take a chance on Embiid, the big man who may have ended up the top prize despite his lone season at Kansas ending early because of a bad back. But once the foot injury popped up during workouts, leaving his NBA debut uncertain after surgery, the two teams at the top passed. He worked so hard, Wiggins said. He didnt let nothing get to him. He always stayed motivated. So Im just proud. Its a proud moment for Kansas. Arizona forward Aaron Gordon went fourth to Orlando, which also had two picks in the lottery, followed by Australian guard Dante Exum to Utah. Then came two teams not used to picking so high: The Boston Celtics took Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart, with the rival Los Angeles Lakers following at No. 7 with Kentucky forward Julius Randle.DRAFTFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOAndrew Wiggins of Kansas stops for a television interview after being selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers as the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft on Thursday in New York. | BASKETBALL SCOREBOARDNBA draftThursday At Barclays Center, Brooklyn, N.Y.

Orlando drafts Arizonas GordonBy KYLE HIGHTOWERASSOCIATED PRESSORLANDO The Orlando Magic went after athleticism and more scoring with their two lottery picks in Thursdays NBA draft. After irting with the idea of trying to move up or possibly even down in the days before the draft, in the end the Magic stayed where they were in taking Arizonas Aaron Gordon at No. 4 and Croatias forward Dario Saric at No. 12. Saric didnt stay long, though, with Orlando later trading his rights to Philadelphia in exchange for Louisiana-Lafayette point guard and No. 10 pick Elfrid Payton. The 6-foot-9 Gordon said he was comfortable playing either small or power forward in the NBA. Im most comfortable as a perimeter player, denitely. However I do love posting up, Gordon said. But Im a very capable of blowing by people. And I trust my jumper a lot more than I did at Arizona. But when it comes down to it, its all up coach (Magic coach Jacque) Vaughn...It all comes down to where he wants to put me. Earlier Thursday, Orlando picked up the 56th overall pick from Denver by trading swingman Arron Afalo back to the Nuggets for point guard Evan Fournier. Afalo previously played three seasons for the Nuggets before being dealt to Orlando as part of the Howard trade. He is coming off averaging a career-high 18 points per game last season for the Magic. NBA: OrlandoMIAMI The Miami Heat got the guard they wanted, and made LeBron James thrilled in the process. The Heat acquired the draft rights to Connecticut guard Shabazz Napier in a trade with the Charlotte Hornets, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press. Miami gave up the No. 26 and No. 55 picks in Thursdays draft for Napier, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the trade had not been formally approved by the NBA. The person said the terms were also expected to include a future second-round selection. Napier was taken at No. 24 by Charlotte, two slots before Miami drafted former North Carolina guard P.J. Hairston for the Hornets. My favorite player in the draft! James tweeted in reference to Napier. And thats a very good sign for Miamis future. Its a perfect moment for my family, Napier said. James has opted out of the last two years of his Heat contract and will become a free agent next week, but hes clearly a fan of Napiers game. During Connecticuts run to the NCAA title this spring, James tweeted, No way u take another PG in the lottery before Napier. Napier wasnt a lottery pick, but wound up on a team that clearly both wanted him and wanted to make James happy. Napier averaged 13.7 points in his four seasons at Connecticut, going 12-1 in NCAA tournament games and winning two titles in his time with the Huskies. He averaged 18 points per game as a senior, and improved his outside shot in each of his nal three college seasons. Heat President Pat Riley indicated last week that he would prefer a seasoned player in this draft. Quite frankly, I wouldnt want to be in the lottery, Riley said. I really wouldnt want to be because its a crap shoot. Now theres a couple guys every year that come out of the rst round and they become great players. Id much rather have a mature 25-, 26-, 27-year-old guy. Napier turns 23 in a couple weeks. The draft is just the rst step of whats going to be a busy couple of weeks for the Heat. Free agencys epicenter this summer may as well be Miami, with James already a free agent, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh deciding if they will opt out as well, and sever al other players from this years team also looking for new contracts either in Miami or otherwise. Wade and Bosh have not revealed if they will forgo their nal two years on their existing Miami deals.

The Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte Branch of AAUW (American Association of University Women) recently announced that four Charlotte County rising eighth-grade female students have been chosen to ll some of the 40 slots at the 2014 Florida AAUW Tech Trek Camp at Eckerd College July 13-19. Talia Cristina and Zoe Ortiz of Port Charlotte Middle School and Jenna Dunakey and Lorrie Konopasek of L.A. Ainger Middle School were chosen from a large number of statewide applicants to take part in the week-long science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) summer camp. Through Tech Trek, girls are immersed in a world that empowers and encour ages them to think about themselves as future scientists, engineers, mathematicians and computer specialists. The camp is designed to develop girls interest, excitement and self-condence in STEM elds. All four students have strong backgrounds and interest in STEM classes Sampling science PROVIDED BY THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF UNIVERSITY WOMENPHOTO PROVIDEDZoe Varner and Talia Cristina of Port Charlotte Middle School found a Mid-County Library book that might prove useful when they attend the Florida American Association of University Women Tech Trek camp at Eckerd College July 13-19.Four students earn spots at Tech Trek STEM Camp Nicole NolesEDITORS CORNERnnoles@sun-herald.com You may have noticed the Port Charlotte Herald looked a little different while I was on vacation last week. While my mom and I had an actual vacation at Kennedy Space Center, my daughter, Angelique, spent the week interning in the NASA lab, although Im pretty sure she would also consider it the best vacation ever. From playing with liquid nitrogen to helping with the VEGGIE lab and listening in on conference calls about the International Space Station, Angels week was crammed with science that many of us can only dream about. For four Charlotte County students, their STEM dreams are just beginning thanks to the Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte Branch of the American Association of University Women. These students have secured four out of the 40 state slots to attend a week-long STEM camp next month thanks to the efforts of our local AAUW members. Learn more about our local branch by visiting http://aauw-. aauw.net/branches/punta. Back when I went to Neil Armstrong (I wont tell you how long ago, though), we had a program called SEEP Student Education Enrichment Program which was a step below the gifted program here. Every Wednesday, select students from all the elementary schools were bussed to the Baker Center, where we learned about aviation and aeronatics, Greek mythology and did logic puzzles and art projects, too. It was the best experience of my student career here, second only to being on the Silverettes Dance Line at Charlotte High School. Enrichment programs for students do work. Although I never followed my intial dreams of becoming a geologist, I still have a fondness for rocks, aviation and space and science in general. STEM elds arent just for the gifted, though, and if we want to stay competitive economically, we need to encour age all our students in STEM study, not only with camps, but with science fair projects and hands-on learning. Our future depends on it.Encouraging girls in STEM fields needs to start early Judge Richards speaks at Law Day luncheon Grand opening for new shooting rangePHOTO PROVIDEDCircuit Judge George C.

Friday, June 27, 2014 Herald Page 3 The Animal Welfare League of Charlotte County is sponsoring a new fundraiser the AWL Pet Photo Contest. The contest begins on Saturday, June 21 and runs until Saturday, Aug. 2, in conjunction with GoGo Photo Contest. The goal of the contest is to raise funds to buy enough pet oxygen mask kits for every Fire/EMS vehicle in Charlotte County, for a total of 29 units. Many pets die each year of smoke asphyxiation. While reghters attempt to safely rescue pets out of burning structures, having the proper equipment pet oxygen masks would greatly increase the chance of the pets survival. These specially-designed animal masks can be used both on conscious pets that have suffered from smoke inhalation and pets that need to be resuscitated after losing consciousness from exposure to toxic fumes. Public Safety Director Chief Marianne Taylor is pleased to work with the Animal Welfare League. On behalf of Charlotte County Fire & EMS I want to thank the Animal Welfare League for launching this fundraiser to provide pet oxygen masks for all of our emergency apparatus. Often pets are victims of smoke inhalation during a re event. Scared, they will hide in the home, prolonging their exposure to the smoky environment. These pet oxygen masks will allow our emer gency responders to administer high concentrations of life-saving oxygen with a well-tting device designed for an animals anatomy. In the recent past, our responders have successfully resuscitated two dogs using pet oxygen masks. Thank you to the Animal Welfare League for their partnership as we continue to make a difference in our community, Taylor said. To vote or enter your photo, go to the AWL website at www.awlshelter.org and follow the link. There is a $5 donation to enter the contest. Enter as many times as you like, one photo per pet. The categories include dog, cat and other (hamster, rabbit, bird, etc.) Each vote is a $1 donation to the shelter. Each 100 votes buys a pet oxygen kit. Vote for any pet, including yours, and vote as often as you like.Animal Welfare League raising funds for pet oxygen masksBy KRISTINE LARSENANIMAL WELFARE LEAGUE OF CHARLOTTE COUNTY PHOTO PROVIDEDRobin Leonard presents a check to sponsor a pet oxygen kit to EMS Chief Marianne Taylor and AWL Volunteer Coordinator Bruce Klemish.

Herald Page 6 Friday, June 27, 2014 Do you remember when?The following are excerpts from the Daily Herald-News from June 22, 1974, through June 28, 1974:Airline additions coming July 1Florida Airlines will provide service to Miami and Tallahassee beginning July 1, according to Harvey Barnard, president of the airlines. Both businessman and tourist can now y to any of the nine cities served by Florida Airlines and return the same day, Barnard said. Florida Airlines, until now, served Punta Gorda, Sarasota, Fort Myers, Tampa, Ocala, Gainesville and Jacksonville. In addition to these new services, Florida Airlines has new planes and is now equipped to handle group and convention charters anywhere in Florida. The planes are DC-3s painted orange and yellow.Area changing into bigger communityThe Charlotte area is slowly changing. A sense of community is being developed among the growing number of people who remain here year around. With that sense of community comes the obligation to help build and improve the Charlotte area. This includes support for local businesses and other establishments. Take the Daily Herald-News for example. Other newspapers compete with us and do a good job of it. Competition helps improve the news product any product. Through supporting the individual parts of this community, the whole is improved.Rain and tides drench CharlotteCharlotte County this morning wallowed in water scenes reminiscent of Hurricane Agnes brush here in 1972. More than ve inches of rain, combined with abnormally high tides, forced the closing of streets. It ooded businesses and homes and caused some residents to evacuate. Civil defense headquarters reported 5.5 inches of rain in Port Charlotte, with a tide of threeand-a-half feet above normal. The highest winds were 52 miles per hour. Water topped seawalls on most canals. In downtown Punta Gorda, Marion Avenue was closed, so was Gilchrist Park and most other streets were under water. The old Barron Collier Bridge had considerable damage and was closed. In Charlotte Harbor, Bayshore Road was completely ooded. The words of R.R. Raschke, director of civil defense, hung in the air: A hurricane would have been worse, but we received a warning.Less students projected for next yearThe projection of student enrollment in Charlotte County next year takes on special interest as indicators show the nations total school enrollment is dropping. During the next ve years, national enrollment is going down by about 4 million, the national Ford study predicts. A 30to 35-percent decline in some states during the past eight years has forced closure of several schools. At this writing, we do not have much of a clue as to the long-range projections for the countys school population. However, we are in a population-building area.Punta Gorda barber shop oldest on Main StreetThe oldest continuing business on Main Street in Punta Gorda is Larues Barber Shop. Times affect business. Hurt by the popularity of long hair styles for men, more than 3,000 barber shops closed their doors in Florida recently. Four of those were in Charlotte County. But not Larues Barber Shop on Marion Avenue. Since the closing of Bills Bar last year, they are now the oldest continuing business on Punta Gordas Main Street. We are having the best year we have had in four years, said Larue Earnest Sr., who opened the shop in 1936. Like other businesses, the shop is affected by the winter tourist trade. We were lled up during the winter and during the school year as well, added Larue Earnest Jr. Right now, they could employ another barber, but hardly anyone wants the job. Young people are looking for benets and more security. Safe Boating WeekNational Safe Boating Week will be observed nationally from June 30 to July 6.

Polarized reactions bracket a large variety of opposite feelings on girl eligibility to play baseball with Little League-age boys. Comments ranged from, Ill get out of Little League, to I would love to see girls break the sex barrier in boys baseball. Umpire Doe Whitehirst, a Punta Gorda Little League volunteer for 30 years, stated, I am denitely against girls playing baseball with boys. Girls have no business playing in a boys sport. Gene Wren, manager of Punta Gorda Little Leagues Jaycee Pirates, said, he will have no girl on his team. There is too great a chance of injury.

Friday, June 27, 2014 Herald Page 9 If you have been meaning to get your dogs teeth cleaned but thought it was too expensive or dangerous, you might want to pay attention. Theres an easier, cheaper and safer way that doesnt involve anesthesia or a lengthy procedure at a veterinarians ofce. Cats n Dogs, at 2826 Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte, will be hosting a non-anesthesia dental clinic from noon until 4 p.m. on Sunday and on Friday, July 11. Nancy Okun always took the health of her pets seriously. She was constantly searching for natural food products, treats, and toys. But it was often very difcult for her to nd what she was seeking. I kept looking for products that I couldnt nd locally, said Okun. Thats when Okun and her husband, Harry Taylor, decided to start Cats n Dogs. The business began catering to the natural pet product needs of area residents seven years ago, and it has been expanding ever since. Cats n Dogs regularly hosts events, all of which are fundraisers for local animal organizations. This month, Okun is delighted to be hosting an anesthesia-free dental clinic for dogs, which will benet Florida Little Dog Rescue. I cant wait to have these rst clinics because if it goes well, were going to try to do it on a monthly basis, explained Okun. The clinic will be held by Dr. Kristen Swanson, founder and Medical Director of Spirit Health Synergies. Originally from Colorado, Swanson is now providing her natural, holistic veterinary services in Florida. She specializes in non-anesthesia dental cleanings, and has been regularly conducting clinics at various locations throughout the state of Florida. A standard dental cleaning is usually performed in a veterinarians ofce and requires the animal to be temporarily put to sleep for the procedure. Because of the costs and risks associated with anesthesia, many pet owners choose to forgo this often expensive process. Swansons holistic approach does not require anesthesia. Veterinary technicians will hold the dog and use comforting words and tones to help it feel at ease. Swanson will then use human-grade instruments to clean and polish the dogs teeth. The entire process only takes about half an hour. While standard veterinary dental cleanings with anesthesia can cost anywhere from $300 to $1,000 or beyond, Swansons anesthesia-free cleanings will cost between $165 and $195. Appointments are necessary for a cleaning during the clinic, and a $20 non-refundable deposit is required. Each dog will be given a veterinary exam prior to the cleaning to conrm that the animal is a t candidate for the procedure. If extra dental care is required, Swanson will make recommendations, but will refer patients to their own veterinarians. Patricia Francis is a trained dental hygienist for humans. She has worked at the ofce of Dr. Richard J. Rand since moving to Florida from the Boston area. She regularly cleans the teeth of her own dog, Asante. Periodontal disease can take off anywhere from three to ve years of your dogs life, said Francis. Its linked to systemic diseases such as those affecting the liver, kidneys and heart. The benets of a healthy mouth dont just apply to humans. Canines have just as much to gain. If you have their teeth cleaned regularly, theyre going to have fresh breath and its going to make them healthier, continued Francis. It does increase the life expectancy of your dog; its that important. The general public is invited to attend the event at Cats n Dogs. People are encouraged to speak with Swanson to obtain more information on the anesthesia-free dental cleanings. Ten dollars from every non-refundable deposit will be donated to Florida Little Dog Rescue. There will be a frozen yogurt tasting for all of the dogs present at the event. Frozen yogurt will also be available for humans. Everyone in attendance will leave with a goody bag. Okun encourages every animal lover to visit Cats n Dogs. Friendly pets are always welcome to come along. Plus visitors will get to meet the latest canine addition to the Cats n Dogs family. Taylor, who was recently adopted from Florida Little Dog Rescue, will be more than happy to greet you upon entering the store. Its a happy place, said Okun. Theres positive energy here. Its a good feeling. Okun, who clearly loves her job, admits that shes thrilled about the upcoming clinic. Shes proud to be hosting a veterinarian who practices holistic pet health care, something that Okun has believed in for quite some time. Having a holistic vet come to the store is absolutely fabulous, said Okun. Im incredibly excited about it. Cats n Dogs is located at 2826 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte, just south of West Tarpon Boulevard.

Herald Page 10 Friday, June 27, 2014 and are considering future careers in a STEM-related eld. In interviews during the application process, each said she was excited at the prospect of taking part in a camp where all participants will have similar interests. However, these young women are not one-dimensional girls. Talia, daughter of John and Kristine Cristina, is active in band, drum line, softball, drama, Math Counts, National Junior Honor Society, Respect Our Schools and Academic Integrity and has competed in local science fairs. Forensics and marine biology are two of the possible elds where Talia sees herself studying in the future. A straight-A student for seven years, Talia also earned a red belt in Tae Kwon Do. She dreams of nding ways to keep the world clean and safe for humans, animals and plants and hopes to nd a career path that will allow her to help do just that. Zoe, daughter of Kristina and Scott Varner, lls her time participating in science fairs, math club and Odyssey of the Mind, the school newspaper, school plays as a member of Junior International Thespian Society and National Junior Honor Society. She likes all of her classes, but prefers doing hands-on activities, and expects that the Tech Trek camp will offer lots of those. Although she enjoys modern technology with computers, smart phones, tablets, etc., she worries that students will forget about the need to use good old-fashioned scientic methods to create new products and innovations in both the health care eld and everyday life. She also is inter ested in using STEM skills in improving law enforcement with new techniques in forensics. Jenna, daughter of Donna and Doug Dunakey, is looking forward to meeting other girls her age who share a passion for math and science, which she has always considered challenging and exciting. Outside the classroom proper, Jenna has participated in science fairs for the last four years (placed second at the 2014 regional fair), Math Counts, the State History Fair, the Science Olympiad and last summers L.A. Ainger summer STEM camp. While attending the schools camp, she was inspired by a eld trip to ECHO Farms to consider career choices that might help alleviate world hunger and the need for clean water. Jenna also plays competitive soccer, golf and serves as an altar server at her church. Lorrie, daughter of Lenida and Bert Konopasek, is excited to think about an entire week studying her favorite courses, math and science, with no worries like grades. To help others learn to like those courses more, she would like to nd a way to help them see a connection between STEM and the real world. Lorrie has taken part in science fairs, Math Counts and is on the rst L.A. Ainger Science Olympiad team. She also is in a Marine STEM club and has taken part in the Florida Gulf Coast University STEM event in March. In advanced band she plays both clarinet and saxophone. Girl Scouts and the CCS Blue Fins Swim team also have a place in her life. This year, she has been helping to pack backpacks for local elementary school students who do not have enough food on the weekends. A California AAUW member launched the rst Tech Trek camp 15 years ago. Since then, the AAUW of California has grown the program to 10 camps on eight college campuses. The American Association of University Women took the program nationwide in 2013 with pilot programs in Florida, Ohio, Oklahoma and Washington state. Campers took part in activities like building programming robots, extracting their own DNA, learning how computer simulations are used to predict weather patterns and much more. Due to the success of the national Tech Trek camps in 2013, AAUW is bringing Tech Trek to three new states in 2014 Alabama, New Mexico and Oregon. All campers are nominated by their seventh-grade math and science teachers. Campers then apply and are selected by the local and then state committees. Families pay only a $50 fee to send a girl to camp. Local branches, individuals and other donors help to pay for the full cost of the program, which is estimated at $900 per girl. Tech Trek attendees spend a week on a college campus which helps the girls envision themselves pursuing higher education. The campers attend either a math or science core class daily as well as hands-on workshops, many of which are run by women STEM professionals. A day-long eld trip provides girls with a chance to learn about a STEM profession in person and witness a STEM workplace environment. All Tech Trek camps include a Professional Womens Night where women STEM professionals from the community speak to the girls about their educational and career paths. These women serve as role models and provide key insights into the successes and challenges of working in a traditionally male-dominated eld. Surveys from Tech Trek California alumnae show that they have completed a higher number of science and math courses, including Advanced Placement courses in high school, than the national average student. They also attend college at a higher rate than the national average and the alumnae credit Tech Trek with encouraging them to pursue their interest in science and math careers.SCIENCE: American Association of University Women sponsors teen STEM campsFROM PAGE 1 PHOTO PROVIDEDLorrie Konopasek and Jenna Dunakey of L.A.

His American-made car was pelted with stones. He decided to leave that part of the world and come to the United States. I asked for the rst ight to the United States, wherever that ight might go, Richards said. This request took him to Miami, where he continued his work as a heavy equipment mechanic and played rugby in his spare time. In 1984, Richards broke his neck in a rugby accident in Fort Myers. He went through multiple surgeries and rehabilitation in Miami. He uses a wheelchair, and drives on his own. But life after the accident left him unable to work as before, and without income, he lived in a subsidized apartment in a poor neighborhood. So Richards decided to go back to school. He had completed several college classes and made the Deans List before it was discovered he had not completed high school in the U.K. That would be prevent him from taking new classes which began the following Monday. A counselor found a GED exam available over the weekend, but there was no time to take a preparation course. Richards took the test, asked for immediate scoring, and after being assured he had passed, was allowed to return to college the following Monday. At rst, Richards wanted to become a psychologist and help others with disabilities. However, that required more advanced mathematics and statistics classes than he cared to take and decided on law school instead. Lack of funds prevented his taking a preparation course for the LSAT (Law School Admission Test). He passed it anyway. With his high grade-point average and an acceptable LSAT score, he was accepted at University of Miami Law School, where he graduated. Meanwhile, Richards became a naturalized citizen, sat for the Bar Exam, passed, and was admitted to the Florida Bar. He then started to look for work. On a job interview with a visually impaired prosecutor in the state attorneys ofce in Orlando, the rst question to him was, Why should I hire you for this job? After his initial panic, Richardss answer was, Because you lack an eye, you need me to assist you. He got the job, and later moved to Tampa, where he advanced to super visor of the juvenile division. He then moved to the statewide prosecutors ofce in Fort Myers. He was appointed to the circuit bench in December 2009. Richards has survived a merit retention ballot and is in his fth year on the bench. He now hears criminal cases in Charlotte County. Richards ended his remarks by saying, Nowhere but here in the United States could I have accomplished all this. This is a wonderful country, and we should all be glad to be here.

Friday, June 27, 2014 Herald Page 11 Q I just planted a Jamaica caper tree before leaving for the summer. It is not thriving. No pests or diseases are evident. Now that the rainy season started, could it be getting too much water? IFAS documents Ive reviewed do not suggest any problems with this native tree. They grow on the beaches here, so I assume they prefer being kept dry. Glen, Port Charlotte A Indeed, Jamaica caper trees (Capparis cynophallophora) are a coastal native. But in the home landscape, this small tree or shrub needs moist, well-drained soil for the rst couple of years. It is a plant difcult to establish on most home sites built with ll soil. With only 0 to 1 percent organic matter in this soil, this tree often retains yellow leaves on weak branches planted in full sun or part shade. This plant prefers being grown on undisturbed, native soils that have a surface layer of humus or leaf mold. When healthy and well-established, a Jamaica caper tree requires little care, growing 12to 18-feet high and 6to 10feet wide. Keep your tree well mulched throughout the coming year. When you return, add generous amounts of compost, humus and shredded leaves dug into the soil surface at a four-inch depth around the tree. Be sure not to raise the soil elevation. Add mulch to maintain a 3to 4-inch layer of mulch using a recy cled wood or bark mulch like melaleuca, eucalyptus or pine bark. An alternative method of adding organic matter would be to dig the tree a second time. Add compost to the bottom of the planting hole. And, as you backll, mix compost with the soil. Finish by creating a shallow water basin over the existing roots in order to keep the transplanted tree moist through next years dry season. Several years ago, I tried the rst method. I added generous amounts of compost to a group of Jamaican capers that never grew more than 3-feet high. We added the compost during the rainy season and watered in the dry season. That simple process of amending the surface soil led to signicantly healthier trees within one year. Learn more about Native trees in Your Neighborhood at the website http://regionalconservation.org.Q My snow on the mountain (snowbush) hedge was stripped of most of its leaves. I found yellow and black caterpillars on the ground. Are they related? George, Port CharlotteA Yes, hundreds of snowbush spanworms feed and eventually strip clean every leaf on a snowbush (Breynia nivosa) hedge. The caterpillar larvae for a day-ying moth called the white-tipped black moth, it is present year-round in South Florida. Think of their activity as free pruning! Without sufcient numbers of natural predators and parasites to naturally kill each spanworm, the spanworms feed on every leaf and twigs, much like rabbits would do. Despite the damage, the hedge usually survives. The number of generations for this insect each year is unknown. Caterpillars emerge from salmon-pink eggs found on the shrubs stems. Watch for the tiny yellow and black caterpillar moving on a stem like a slinky. Remove them by hand, especially those bunched on the twig ends. Or, spray with insecticidal soap while the larvae are small. Other treatments include Bacillus thuringiensis (B.t.) or a pesticide containing spinosad.

Friday, June 27, 2014 Herald Page 13 Being the northernmost team in District 9, it was easy for the Lee County teams to give light regard to the Port Charlotte Little League 9-year-old All-Star team. It was a fatal mistake, as Port Charlotte showed great ght in winning two games and knocking two teams out of the double-elimination tournament. And yet these kids still had to be thinking, What if we could have beaten Hancock? For it was the team on the Cape Coral/North Fort Myers line that signaled their doom with two heartbreaking losses; one in which they had the lead in the last inning, and another where they came from far behind only to run out of outs. The May 29 tournament opener against Hancock at Kurt Donaldson Park will be considered the big one that got away, as Port Charlotte had leads of 2-0 and 4-2 but couldnt seal the deal as it wasted a great pitching performance by Phil Rizzo. Leading 4-3 in the sixth inning, Hancock was the beneciary of a tough play at rst that wasnt converted, another single, a walk and two wild pitches, the second of which scored the winning run in a walk-off, 5-4 Hancock win. It was a tough one. They played their hearts out, they showed we can compete, and I could have made some better decisions, head coach Stew Vivian said. Knowing it let one get away, Port Charlotte took its frustration out on perennial power Fort Myers American at Fleischman Park the following night. Jeff Vivian, who scored three runs in the tournament opener, was a star on the mound, pitching a complete game and helping his cause with two more runs and two hits as Port Charlotte overcame a slow start and eliminated FMA 13-3 in the losers bracket game. Dylan Leahy had a two-run double that changed the momentum, while Ethan Zylstra also scored twice, doubled, and cut down two runners trying to advance from behind the plate. This gave Port Charlotte the right to play Cape Coral American at Harold Avenue Park in a Saturday morning tilt. Cape Coral American had played a marathon eight-inning game the night before, a 7-3 loss to rival Cape Coral National that ended at 11:30 p.m. Port Charlotte took advantage, running up the pitch count before blowing a close game wide open, scoring ve runs in the fourth and 14 thats not a typo 14 runs in the fth in a 20-2 blowout. Jason LePage singled, doubled, tripled and drove in seven runs. Josh Doolittle produced two hits, two runs and two RBI in the nine hole, while Rizzo, Zylstra and Vivian scored three times. Leahy had four singles. The dream of a district title came to end on Sunday when Port Charlotte nally ran out of pitching in a return match at Hancock. But it didnt go without a bang. Port Charlotte trailed 8-2 after three innings, but after a two-hour rain delay was able to cut the lead to 8-7 with a ve-run fth. Unfortunately, the team wasnt able to give Hancock a taste of its own medicine as it got some insurance runs and held on. Joseph Rivera pitched great in relief to aid Port Charlottes comeback and Chris Ping had a key hit in the fthinning rally to score pinch-runner Bryce Eaton.

With the arrival of summer, you can bet Ill be spending more time at the beach, enjoying more sunsets on the lanai and making trips to a few of my favorite museums during the afternoon sizzle of Floridas hottest months. Lucky for me, as well as other Punta Gorda residents, taking a trip to a museum doesnt have to mean long hours in the car. In fact, people in Punta Gorda have the advantage of sharing the city with three truly phenomenal museums, all of which offer educational and entertaining exhibits year-round. Rick Treworgys Muscle Car City Museum is a great place to see hundreds of vintage rides, not to mention enjoy some tasty treats of the s at its diner. Truly, is there anything better than a burger, shake and an afternoon spent touring vehicles of the past? Then theres the Military Heritage Museum, located in Fishermens Village. Veterans and their families come from all over the state to view the artifacts showcased in this museum, which houses exhibits ranging from the Civil War through present day conicts. And although it is closed for summer vacation, the Blanchard House Museum of African-American History & Culture is a wonderful asset to the area. During its annual grand-opening festivities, set for Sept. 27 this year, museum volunteers will open the doors to its latest exhibit, The Road to Emancipation. The display will celebrate the rst public reading of President Abraham Lincolns Emancipation Proclamation in Florida on May 20, 1865. Be sure to read all about Punta Gordas historical treasures in AL Hemingways feature story, which starts on the cover and continues to pages 8 and 9.PG museums educate and entertain Pamela Staik PGH EditorPamela Staik is the editor of the Punta Gorda Herald.

Friday, June 27, 2014 Herald Page 3 The Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce is well known for its events in and around town, and leadership members are in the nal planning stages of several that can now be shared with the public. As the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Charley approaches, the chamber is working with the Charlotte Stone Crabs to host an honoree game on Aug. 9 to thank as many people as possible who helped the community rise like a phoenix to become the city it is today. All businesses are invited to attend and sell their wares during the game, for either a $100 at fee or the purchase of 20 tickets at either the $9 or $19 price point. The game will conclude with a reworks display, too. Certain restrictions apply, so as not to compete with the concessionaires at the ballpark. However, to register your business to sell goods or services, call Tyler Van Mater at 941-639-3720 and she will get you all the necessary information. The chamber would like as many residents as possible to attend the event, also. Both ticket levels are box level. For a ticket to the game, the cost is $9. For $19, tickets include an all-you-can-eat buffet of hot dogs, chips, popcorn, cookies and sodas. These tickets can be purchased now in the online payment center of the chambers website, www.puntagordachamber.com, or by calling the chamber ofce. A portion of the proceeds of each ticket sold will go to Project Illumination a project to light up the entire city of Punta Gorda for the holidays, which, in turn, seemed to be an appropriate way of shining a light on Punta Gordas progress during the last ten years. Plan to be a part of the celebration, and mark your calendars to come along and join the party. The Punta Gorda Chamber is also working on plans for the annual pops concert, set for Oct. 11 at Florida SouthWestern State College, as Edison State College will be known as of July 1. The campus is located at 26300 Airport Road, Punta Gorda. Then there is the annual Lighted Boat Parade across Charlotte Harbor on Dec 14. This year, the parade will be celebrating its silver anniversary, and planning is well underway to make it one of the largest parades to date. If interested in becoming a sponsor of either of these events or would like more information about them, visit the chambers website or call the chamber ofce.Next Corks n Canvas event setAshleigh Leonard of Brushstrokes by Ashleigh will return to the Charlotte Community Foundation, 227 Sullivan St., Punta Gorda, for the next Corks n Canvas class, which is from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on July 24.

Friday, June 27, 2014 Herald Page 7 Excerpts from 40 years ago Punta GordaDo you remember when?FROM OUR ARCHIVES Janine Smith 40 Years AgoJanine Smith writes about Punta Gordas historic past. Contact her at janinehs1@ comcast.net. The following are excerpts from the Daily Herald-News from June 22, 1974, through June 28, 1974:Airline additions coming July 1Florida Airlines will provide service to Miami and Tallahassee beginning July 1, according to Harvey Barnard, president of the airlines. Both businessman and tourist can now y to any of the nine cities served by Florida Airlines and return the same day, Barnard said. Florida Airlines, until now, serves Punta Gorda, Sarasota, Fort Myers, Tampa, Ocala, Gainesville and Jacksonville. In addition to these new services, Florida Airlines has new planes and is now equipped to handle group and convention charters anywhere in Florida. The planes are DC 3 As painted orange and yellow.Area changing into bigger communityThe Charlotte County area is slowly changing. A sense of community is being developed among the growing number of persons who remain here year around. With that sense of community comes the obligation to help build and improve the Charlotte area. This includes support for local businesses and other establishments. Take the Daily Herald-News for example. Other newspapers compete with us and do a good job of it. Competition helps improve the news product any product. Through supporting the individual parts of this community, the whole is improved.Rain and tides drench CharlotteCharlotte County this morning wallowed in water scenes reminiscent of Hurricane Agnes brush here in 1972. More than 5 inches of rain, combined with abnormal high tides, forced the closing of streets. It ooded businesses and homes and caused some residents to evacuate. Civil defense headquarters reported 5.5 inches of rain in Port Charlotte, with a tide of 3-and-a-half feet above normal. The highest winds were 52 miles per hour. Water topped seawalls on most canals. In downtown Punta Gorda, Marion Avenue was closed, so was Gilchrist Park and most other streets were under water. The old Barron Collier Bridge had considerable damage and was closed. In Charlotte Harbor, Bayshore Road was completely ooded. The words of R.R. Raschke, director of civil defense, hung in the air: a hurricane would have been worse, but we received a warning.Less students projected for next yearThe projection of student enrollment in Charlotte County next year takes on special interest as indicators show the na tions total school enrollment is dropping. During the next ve years, national enrollment is going down by about 4 million, the national Ford study predicts. A 30 to 35 percent decline in some states during the past eight years has forced closure of several schools. At this writing, we do not have much of a clue as to the long-range projections for the countys school population. However, we are in a population-building area.Punta Gorda barber shop oldest on Main StreetThe oldest continuing business on Main Street in Punta Gorda is Larues Barber Shop. Times affect business. Hurt by the popularity of long hairstyles for men, more than 3,000 barber shops closed their doors in Florida recently. Four of those were in Charlotte County. But not Larues Barber Shop on Marion Avenue. Since the closing of Bills Bar last year, they are now the oldest continuing business on Punta Gordas Main Street. We are having the best year we have had in four years, said Larue Earnest Sr., who opened the shop in 1936. Like other businesses, the shop is affected by the winter tourist trade. We were lled up during the winter and during the school year as well, added Larue Earnest Jr. Right now, they could employ another barber, but hardly anyone wants the job. Young people are looking for benets and more security. Safe Boating WeekNational Safe Boating Week will be observed nationally from June 30 to July 6. In Charlotte County and North Port, Flotilla 92 kicks off the week Sunday with boat inspections at the Stainton-Blu motel dock. So will Flotilla 98 in Punta Gorda.Heins selected ABWA Woman of the YearHelen Heins has been named Woman of the Year by the Peace River Chapter of the American Business Womens Association. Heins is the supervisor in the tax roll department of the county tax accessors ofce. She serves as treasurer of the Charlotte group and has been active in ABWA activities for several years.Debate thickens over girls playing baseballLocal Little League opinions are mixed on girl eligibility in boys baseball. Polarized reactions bracket a large variety of opposite feelings on girl eligibility to play baseball with Little League-age boys. Comments ranged from, Ill get out of Little League, to, I would love to see girls break the sex barrier in boys baseball. Umpire Doe Whitehirst, a Punta Gorda Little League volunteer for 30 years, stated, I am denitely against girls playing baseball with boys. Girls have no business playing in a boys sport. Gene Wren, manager of Punta Gorda Little Leagues Jaycee Pirates, said he will have no girl on his team. There is too great a chance of injury. Bob South, president of Punta Gorda Little League, said, I am for it if the girls qualify. Give them a chance.Charlie sez...I dont make mistakes. Well, I have been wrong only once. I let someone talk me into thinking I was wrong. Just cant beat a modest alligator.Thought for Today June 27Knowledge comes but wisdom lingers.

Herald Page 8 Friday, June 27, 2014 three museums the Military Heritage Museum, Muscle Car City and the Blanchard House Museum of AfricanAmerican History & Culture.Military Heritage MuseumLocated in Fishermens Village, 1200 W. Retta Esplanade, Punta Gorda, the Military Heritage Museum has been in operation since 2001. Its motto, Freedom isnt Free, depicts the rich military legacy that has been passed down from generation to generation by Americas ghting men and women. Guests can view numerous artifacts Civil War memorabilia, uniforms, weapons and photographs from all periods illustrating the sacrices that U.S. military personnel have endured to ensure the nations freedom. One fascinating item is a newspaper clipping from the Honolulu Advertiser, dated Nov. 30, 1941, with the headline reading in large bold print, Japanese May Strike Over Weekend. That yellowed copy of the newspapers front page is one of only two in existence that had forewarned of a Japanese attack one week prior to Pearl Harbor. Since they have been at their present location, the museum has seen a significant increase in visitors. This past June, the museum celebrated its 250,000th visitor to the museum. Last April, due to its increased popularity, the museum acquired 2,400-square-feet of space, situated directly above the museums present location. Kim Lovejoy, a retired U.S. Air Force master sergeant and executive director of the museum, said the rooms upstairs will have a formal library for histor ical research, which will be opened to researchers two days a week by appointment. We will also have books and magazines for guests to read, she said. At the far end, we will have our ofces and storage space for our numerous items that we collect and display downstairs. The museum sponsors many events throughout the year, including Memorial Day, Veterans Day and Pearl Harbor Day remembrance ceremonies. Our next program will be POW/MIA Remembrance Day in September, she said. We usually hold it in Center Court in Fishermens Village. Lovejoy said that the continued success of the museum could not have been achieved without their dedicated team of volunteers. We have 65 wonderful volunteers that are the lifeblood of the museum, she said. They keep us going. Summer hours are 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and from noon until 6 p.m. Sundays. Admission is free and donations are gladly accepted. For more information, visit www.freedomisntfree.org or call 941-575-9002.Rick Treworgys Muscle Car CityThose who are classic and antique car acionados can take a tour of Rick Treworgys Muscle Car City and marvel at the 209 vintage automobiles on display in his 99,000-square-foot building. Since opening the museums doors in February 2009, owner Rick Treworgy has delighted visitors with his immense collection of vehicles. People can be transported back in time and view Corvettes, Camaros, Chevelles and Pontiac GTOs, while music from the 1950s and 1960s plays in the background. Men seem to gravitate toward the high-performance cars, said Dina Modesto, the manager of Muscle Car City. Ladies love cars like the 1957 Chevy Bel Air. Treworgy has several rare automobiles among his extensive collection. One is a 1936 Chevrolet Phaeton. With peoples taste in autos constantly changing, both Ford and Chevrolet discontinued manufacturing them and the model on display in the museum is one of seven that were made that year and the only known to exist.

Friday, June 27, 2014 Herald Page 9 take a look at the 1965 Z-16 Chevrolet Chevelle. It was the rst year the model had a 396 big block V-8 engine cranking out 375 horsepower (to) become one of the most desirable of the 65 Chevelles. It was also one of the rarest with only 201 Z-16s built in 1965 200 hardtops and one ultra-rare convertible, according to Top Speed magazine. Another powerhouse in the museum is a one-of-a-kind Central Ofce Production Order 1969 Chevrolet Camaro, which came with a 427-cubic-inch, 425-horsepower engine. Muscle Car City has a car show the third Saturday of every month from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The last Sunday of the month is an Auto Flea Market & Car Corral from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m. Admission is free to the public. The museum offers a 1960s style diner that will bring back some memories.

Diner hours are 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. For more information, visit www. musclecarcity.net or call 941-575-5959.Blanchard House MuseumBernice Russell had a dream. She purchased the Blanchard House in 1997 to transform it into a museum to chronicle the contributions made by African-Americans in Charlotte County. Russell had been friends with the Blanchard family and wanted to restore the building to its original state. Sadly, Russell passed away in 1999 and never saw her dream come to fru ition. But her daughter, Martha Bireda, the current executive director for the museum, donated the historic structure to the Bernice A. Russell Community Development Corporation to carry on in her mothers footsteps. The house was moved from its original site on Fitzhugh Street to 406 Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd., and had its grand opening on May 22, 2004, Florida Emancipation Day. In 1925, Joseph Blanchard, a prominent sea captain and sherman in Punta Gorda, decided to build a home. Local contractor Thatcher Johnson constructed a four-room, wood-framed house with a front porch. Blanchard and his wife, Minnie, lived in their home until his death on Christmas Eve in 1949 at the age of 86. Because of her failing health, Minnie eventually relocated to New Orleans to be close to her family and passed away at age 84 in 1963. In the 10 years since it has been in operation, the Blanchard House has been in the forefront of African-American history. Artifacts, books, photographs and living history demonstrations have showcased the important role AfricanAmericans have played in Charlotte County and the state of Florida. In the past, the museum has traced the partnership between runaway slaves and the Seminole Indians. The two forged a strong union after the Seminoles offered escaped slaves refuge through the southern portion of the Underground Railroad. The program has featured Ralph Smith of African Seminole descent portraying African Seminole War Chief Abraham and John Grifn lecturing on the history of the African-Seminole alliance. While closed for the summer months, the museum will reopen its doors on Sept. 27. It will be featuring Florida Emancipation Day. The new exhibition, entitled The Road to Emancipation, will celebrate the rst public reading of President Abraham Lincolns Emancipation Proclamation in Florida on May 20, 1865. With the signing of that historic edict, Lincoln freed 3 million African-Americans held in bondage. For more information, visit www.blanchardhousemuseum.us or call 941-575-7518. Admission is free.

Herald Page 10 Friday, June 27, 2014 Punta Gorda has long been a beacon of light during the holiday season. The Punta Gorda Isles Saturday Before Christmas Eve Lighted Boat Parade and the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerces Lighted Boat Parade, on the harbor with the date chosen based on tides, are two of the nest in the area. Downtown Punta Gorda is also lit up with lighted garlands and the huge Christmas tree, and residents do their part by lighting up yards, houses and docked boats. Fishermens Village stands alone at the top, putting up more than 1 million lights in mid-November for the entire holiday season. The lights and decorations put people in the proper spirit and also draw people to town to spend money, something that has not gone unnoticed by political and business leaders who are planning a drive to increase lighting in business and residential areas. One plan, supported by the Downtown Merchants Association and the Punta Gorda Chamber, is to beef up the number and quality of downtown holiday lights and leave them on all year. Mayor Rachel Keesling, believing current downtown holiday lighting less than optimal, brought up the issue at the Dec. 18 council meeting. Council basically agreed with the concept, but voiced concerns over the costs, which city staff have just researched. City Manager Howard Kunik said of the effort, We went out and got costs to illuminate the core of downtown, Marion and Olympia (avenues), within that area. In addition to the holidays, it will be permanent as well. Staff estimated the cost of replacing the old garlands embedded with traditional-style Christmas lights with more energy-efcient LED lights at around $45,000. The old decorations could be used in other locations around town, such as the entrances to Punta Gorda Isles and Burnt Store Isles or along Harborwalk. That sum is not pocket change, and a decision to do or not to do will occur in the next few months while discussions are underway to look for business community support. Kunik said, This is going to be a budget issue; the council wants to consider it as a part of the budget process. The new budget for scal year 2015 will be approved in September. If the lighting plan makes the cut, the rosiest scenario may make it possible to install the new lighting at the start of the new year during the removal of this holiday seasons old decorations. Patti Allen, general manager of Fishermens Village, council member Kim Devine and John Wright, the president of the Punta Gorda Chamber, also are working on a plan to entice more businesses and residents to join the lighting effort. Just underway, the trio are in the process of oating ideas for what they call Project Illumination. Nobody knows more about the drawing power of lights than Allen, who has seen them attract visitors to the waterside mall by the thousands every year. The Festival of Lights is just over whelming, she said. Ralph Allens King Fisher Fleet canal cruise started 30 years ago and was the trigger for us to start the festival. All those people on the cruise, we thought, Lets give them some more lights. It gets bigger and better every year. Allen is under no illusions that either the downtown or the other business and residential areas will ever match the effort of the village, but she believes the town as a whole can become a holiday destination with a little help from the private sector. She said, My vision has always been our entire community could become a Christmas town, where people would come and drive through the downtown area and the whole community to look at lights and shop. We need to start small and light up downtown and then the canals, businesses and whole community. For any initiative like this, it all begins and ends with the community, and Allen believes members will respond. The village didnt start with a million lights. We worked our way up, and now we exceed a million, she said. People here get things done, and this is no exception in my mind. Our community is a community of doers, who never do anything small and always do things in a big way. I just see this as being a wonder ful, lighted community. Theres a magic here at night that people need to see.Lighting up the town FILE PHOTOCity crew members spend countless hours transforming downtown Punta into a spectacle of light every holiday season. PHOTO PROVIDED BY PATTI ALLENPatti Allen, general manager of Fishermens Village, is a member of an informal group promoting Project Illumination. She is a big believer in the power of holiday lighting and decorations after witnessing the drawing power of the villages annual Festival of Lights. Every year, on Dec. 26, she and her sta hit stores from Naples to Sarasota picking up more on-sale lights, trees and decorations to add to the outdoor mall each season.

Friday, June 27, 2014 Herald Page 15 Since becoming a member of Char lotte County Composite Squadron FL-051 of the Civil Air Patrol about three years ago, Christopher Byron has been one busy individual. Last November, the 15-year-old Cape Coral resident attained the rank of captain and become the cadet squadron commander in January. Like many youths who join the CAP, Byrons dream is to be a pilot. Since September 2010, he has completed nine orientation ights, where he ies with an experienced pilot to gain prociency before taking the private pilots test. Recently, FL-051 sent Byron, 15, and three other cadets 2nd Lt. Mikehla Hicks, 13, Staff Sgt. Austin Boley, 15, and 15-year-old Senior Airman Stephen Krause to the weeklong Aviation Ground School held at the Sarasota Military Academy. The program started seven years ago and conducts courses that will prepare qualied cadets to pass the Private Pilot Knowledge Test offered by the Federal Aviation Administration. Of the 30 students attending the prestigious school, Byron achieved the highest overall grade and was awarded a $1,000 scholarship by the Florida Wing of the CAP. Jim Kaletta, CAP deputy commander for Group 5, said much of the credit for funding the ground school goes to Lt. Col. Virginia Cullity and Lt. Col. Fran Gleockler. They would have a big picnic and cook hot dogs and hamburgers and use all that money for food for the school, Kaletta explained. Kaletta said many cadets have gone on to become pilots because of the ground school. It is not an easy course, he said. The cadets undergo 55 hours of intense classroom work. The only cost to the student is $115, which is the price of the Cirrus aviation kit that includes the FAAs Pilot Handbook for Aeronautical Knowledge, the FAAs Airplane Flying Handbook and Gleim Private Pilot Test Prep. This is an amazing cost and really benets the cadets, he said. If they had to go to a private ying school, it would cost more than $2,000. Both Byron and Hicks found the navigational course to be the most difcult. I am pretty good at navigating, but not on paper, Hicks said. I have to work on that. The easiest for me was the class on weather conditions. I found that interesting. Byron agreed with Hicks and said they did not use computers. Instead, they used old E6B plotters. It was most difcult, Byron said. But I still managed an overall grade score of 85. Boley, who has been in the squadron for two years, said he found the courses explaining the different aircraft systems extremely fascinating. We had to learn so many subjects in such a short amount of time, he said. A lot more went into it than I thought. Kaletta said an individual can solo at 16 years of age, get their private license at 17 and, at 18, get a commercial license. Now they have a ight school right here in Punta Gorda Airport Harborside Aviation with an FAA designee that can give them the test, Kaletta said. Before, you had to go to either Fort Myers or Sarasota airports to take the test. All the squadron cadets who have attended the aviation ground school certainly have an edge when taking the exam for their license, according to Kaletta. They will certainly do well, he said. We are proud of them.CAP training prepares cadets for sky time PHOTO PROVIDEDCadets undergo an intense, one-week school consisting of 55 hours of study to prepare them in obtaining a private pilots license from the Federal Aviation Administration.

The Sun Classified Page 12E/N/Cads.yoursun.netFriday, June 27, 2014 ZITSByJerryScott&JimBorgman GARFIELDByJimDavis FRESHLYSQUEEZEDByEdStein DILBERTByScottAdams REXM O R G ANByWoodyW i lsonandTerryBeatty MARYWORTHByKarenMoyandJoeGiellaDEAR DR. ROACH: My w ife is 76 and diabetic. S he has been taking meds for a long time, and has a hard time managing her blood sugars. I saw an ad recently for a natural formula that, according to the ad, will help lower blood levels substantially, w ithout injections, and apparently is free of other side effects. The claim also mentions a very substantial reduction in cholesterol and triglycerides as well. If the claim is legitimate, my wife would greatly benet from taking it. Her general practitioner claims to know nothing about it. C an you enlighten us on this situation, please? R.G. ANSWER: I looked up the supplement, and the manufacturer states that the product contains a proprietary blend of Panax ginseng and cinnamon. The good news is that both of these products have been reported to improve blood sugar in diabetics. The data on ginseng is equivocal; however, the most recent and, in my opinion, most convincing study showed no benet to ginseng on blood sugar. On the other hand, the most recent data on cinnamon shows that a teaspoon a day does reduce blood sugar by a few percent. This isnt enough to bring a poorly controlled diabetic under good control, but it does help a little bit. The data on cinnamons effect on cholesterol is not convincing. The bad news is that any medication prescribed or over-thecounter, man-made or natural supplement has the potential for side effects. Most people wont have side effects, but if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Ginseng can cause sleep troubles, headache and diarrhea. Cinnamon contains a chemical that can cause liver problems. C eylon cinnamon has less of the potentially toxic chemical. S ince supplements are unregulated, you are always at the mercy of the manufacturer that it has put in the correct ingredients. There are many studies showing that, for a variety of supplements, there often is not as much as, or even any of, the active ingredient claimed. F inally, the products w ebsite clearly says: T hese statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Admi nistration or Health Ca nada. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. Rath er than their proprietary blend, I would r ecommend a half-teaspoon of cinnamon twice a day for people who want to use a supplement, but tell your wifes doctor that she is taking it, because if it really works for her, her doctor may need to adjust any other diabetes medicine she might be taking. DEAR DR. ROACH: Can yo u explain the condition known as stone shoulder? I am a man, 67 years old, and I believe I have it. I spent 45 years as a TV news photographer, handling heavy cameras, tripods, etc. B.J. ANSWER: Stone shoulder is a new one for me. Ma ybe you mean frozen shoulder, a condition also called adhesive capsulitis. Its not a strictly accurate term, since the loss of movement the name implies is gradual. It starts with shoulder pain, often worse at night, lasting for months. St iffness develops, and then the loss of shoulder movement can be severe. A careful physical exam by a regular doctor, a rh eumatologist or sports medicine doctor, or an orthopedic surgeon can make the diagnosis. Often, the doctor will inject a steroid and anesthetic into the shoulder: The pain relief and improved movement within a minute make the diagnosis. I refer patients to physical therapy for a gradually increasing exercise regimen. Sometimes, additional injections are necessary. In your case, I would worry about a rotator cuff tear or inammation, which you also might have acquired while doing your job. A careful exam usually can distinguish these. Occasionally, an MRI is required.Ginseng, cinnamon meet diabetes and cholesterolDr Roach 8604583

If Im traveling for a few days, all of my pills will t into one of those bags. D eborah H., Nevada City, C alif. D eborah, thats a great way to recycle those little bags. If taking a road trip, this could work nicely. If ying, though, be cautious. The Transportation S ecurity Administration has this to say regarding prescription medications: P assengers are allowed to bring medications in pill or other solid form through security screening checkpoints in unlimited amounts, as long as they are screened. T SA does not require passengers to have medications in prescription bottles, but states have individual laws regarding the labeling of prescription medication with which passengers need to comply.Dear Heloise: I have had many convertibles. How ever, the tops now have a different material other than vinyl, which is more like a canvas. This material seems to attract more lint from the elements, leaving a spotted look. I have found that by using a lint roller on the top, it has picked up everything, and my convertible top looks terric. Eileen, via email Dear Heloise: I was frustrated that I could not use the top of my washer and dryer as a continuous, large workspace for folding clothes, etc. Items kept falling down in between them and behind them. So me manufacturers sell a work surface that ts ov er both of them, but its expensive. Then I had a brainstorm. I bought an inexpensive, 3-foot-by-5foot foam oor mat at my local home-improvement store. With scissors, I was able to cut it to t, and my problem was solved. Kathy B. in San Antonio Ka thy, this is such a wonderful solution to a problem that I think a lot of people have! And the best part: Its cheap and can be tailored to everyones situation.

He still has some of his ex-girlfriends lingerie in his dresser. When we rst got involved, he showed it to me and asked if I wanted any. I said no thanks. Now that Im more invested in the relationship, Id like him to get r id of it. He is currently out of town, traveling for a month. Would it be inappropriate for me to throw away these trinkets without consulting him? SETTING BOUNDARIES IN ARIZONA DEAR SETTING BOUNDARIES: Ye s, I think it would be inappropriate. Although your boyfriend will probably tell you to go ahead and get rid of it if it bothers you, it would be more respectful if you clear it with him rst. DEAR ABBY: I was r ecently told by a neighbor that if he wasnt married, he would make a pass at me. It made me feel kind of bad, especially the next day when I saw his wife. My niece said I shouldnt feel bad because it was a compliment and I should be glad I still attract attention at 60. My feeling is, if y ou think about it its indelity. Am I wrong or too stringent in my thinking? OLD-FASHIONED LADY IN OREGON DEAR OLDF ASHIONED: I think what y our neighbor said was less indelity than lust in his heart. But in a sense, he did make a pass because when he said what he did, he signaled to you that he could be interested. C ut him some slack this time and chalk it up to having been paid a compliment. But if he says it again, tell him it bothers y ou because you like his wife and think its insulting to her. DEAR ABBY: My ance, T odd, and I just became engaged and are starting to plan our wedding. The problem is his father is r emarried to a terrible woman. Todd grew up with her, but he cant stand her, and I feel the same way. I gave her a chance, but she got drunk something she does often and insulted my mother. Obviously, my mother and Todd ar e my priorities. Todd and I do not want her at our wedding because were afraid shell get drunk and make a scene, but how do we manage that? How do we make it clear that we love his dad and want him there, but his wife is not welcome? NERVOUS BRIDE-TO-BE IN FLORIDA DEAR NERVOUS: You and Todd should talk to his father and express your concerns that his wifes unpredictable behavior could ru in your wedding. Ask how he thinks this should be handled. He may agree to attend alone or choose to skip the wedding. He could also promise you that if his wife gets loaded and becomes disruptive, he will escort her out of there immediately. (Suggest it to him if hes unwilling to come without her.) D ear Abby is written by A bigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www. D earAbby.com or P.O.

Proverbs 29:1. There is a price to be paid for refusing to heed the counsel of God. We have a choice to make. We can trust and obey God and live or we can refuse to trust and obey Him and self-destruct.
