Editors Note: Sue Wade is being promoted to Lets Go! on Wednesdays and, starting next Friday, David Morris will move into this spot.Upstate New York, circa 1968: You tell the in-laws youre moving to St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, and you might as well announce youre leaving for the moon. Bar bara Farlows mom inquires, Youre going where?! The late Dave Farlows son, Keith, says the late s were the renegade days for his parents as they were for many American expats. Back then, there werent even grocery stores on St. Croix; they had to buy produce off a boat from Puerto Rico. The enterprising Farlows nonetheless established the islands rst movie theater, family-based swim team and ice cream shops. Selling ice cream to locals put me through private school and swim team, Keith laughs. Dave and Barbara had found paradise. They raised their family; saw their sons swim in the Olympics and Pan American Games. They were planning to retire there. One September night in 1989, a monster storm changed everything. Hurricane Hugo attened St. Croix with winds that islanders swear reached 200 mph, leaving behind post-apocalyptic devastation and a panicked frenzy of looting. Keith Farlow had just left for senior year at college in Kentucky. For ve days it was as if his par ents, indeed the entire island, had vanished. The colleges dean nally got news through a ham radio operator, but crackly reports of his folks barricaded in their street amid a massive gunght didnt exactly set Keiths mind at ease. St. Croix never seemed the same again, and retirement in Orlando didnt work for Dave Farlow, who felt lost that far from his ocean. Then, says Keith, One day he calls and tells us, Im opening a restaurant. Really, Dad? Youre supposed to be retired. Yup. Found this place called Englewood. Rejuvenated by this little Gulf town that echoed the good St. Croix, Dave Farlow followed his dream, moved to Englewood, and opened the Country Hound Caf. Keith and his Kentucky-born bride, Laurie, had a dream too. Theyd just started planning a Caribbean-themed restaurant in Louisville, incorporating Southern-style dishes. Funny. If it werent for Hurricane Hugo, they never would have visited Englewood. Nor would Dave Farlow have been there to catch wind of Englewoods Flying Bridge II restaurant for sale, right on the water among the mangroves. It was the perfect spot for the kids restaurant. Laurie marvels, Next thing we know, were looking at this restaurant for sale. Then, in three months, were here, and Farlows opens a month later. We went, What the heck just happened? I never thought Id be doing this, Laurie admits. So the rst principle of Restaurant Ownership for Dummies, according to Laurie: Hire good people. Shes in charge; Im just the owner, Keith smiles. Hey, dad used to get produce off the boat. At least I dont have to go meet a boat down the end of Dearborn! Sue Wade is a local columnist for the Charlotte Sun, and now Lets Go!. You can recommend restaurants and/or bars to her by email to sue.gleasonwade@cengage.com.Pirates of the Caribbean CHARLOTTE COUNTY Sheriff Bill Prummell said he gives local drug dealers and abusers three options. They can either straighten up and get their act together and become a part of the community, go to jail, or get the hell out of my county, he said. Apparently, 66 people who t the bill recently chose Option B. During a press conference Thursday at the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce in Punta Gorda, the sheriff announced Operation Summer Heat that drug sweep that ran from June 24 to July 1 resulted in 66 arrests. He said the CCSOs narcotics unit conducted undercover drug deals that did in many of the arrestees, who came from all walks of life and carried various drugs of choice. The Sheriffs Ofce closed 138 cases, some dating back to last year. A total of 335 narcotic-related charges were led. A major reason for the sweep was not only to get drugs off the street, but also to prevent other crimes, Prummell said. The sheriff 66 drug suspects feel HeatBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERHEAT | 12 Burst of Independence SUN FILE PHOTOFireworks lit up the night sky over Laishley Park last Fourth of July. More reworks are planned for tonight at Laishley in Punta Gorda. For a list of area reworks displays, see page 2.After the sea battle between the USS Constitution and the British warship the HMS Guerriere on Aug. 19, 1812, a sailor from the crew of the Constitution was lowered over the side to assess the battle damage. When he saw several of Guerrieres cannonballs lodged into the side of the ship, he yelled up to Commodore Isaac Hull, Huzzah! Her sides are made of iron! Peering down, Hull replied, Ironsides, aye! The legend was born. From that day forward, after her victory over the British man-of-war, the USS Constitution would forever be known as Old Ironsides. Today, the mighty 44-gun frigate rst built in 1797 and named after our Constitution by President George Washington, is the worlds oldest commissioned naval vessel aoat. Among the crew of 70 ofcers and enlisted personnel serving aboard her is Electronics Technician 1st Class Adam Way of Port Charlotte. Joining the U.S. Navy in April 2007, Way had previously been aboard the USS New Serving aboard Old IronsidesBy AL HEMINGWAYSUN CORRESPONDENTABOARD | 12 PHOTO PROVIDED BY NAVY SPECIALIST PETER D.

Coppola receiving a diplomate certificate from the American Board of Optometry was supplied by his mother, Kathleen L. Coppola. A column in Saturdays Sun stated otherwise. CHARLOTTE COUNTY The county recently stopped a painting contractor from working on the Port Charlotte Public Library roof because the practice may not comply with state regulations. The county allowed the painting rm to put a protective coating on the library roof to extend its life, said David Milligan, director of county facilities construction and maintenance. But last month, when it was reported to Charlotte County that, according to state guidelines, coating roof systems requires a licensed roong contractor, the county ceased operations. It was a mistake, Milligan said. We stopped immediately and no longer do this. There is no reason for us to skirt the roong contractor laws. Milligan explained that it was believed the recent coating of the library roof, and perhaps several other county-owned buildings, was legitimate work for painters. But when he investigated, Milligan discovered state regulations governing such contracting work may not allow the practice. We agreed it could be interpreted as a violation of roong contractor laws, he said. According to state statutes, qualied painting contractors may paint roofs. However a roong contractor is required for a wide range of services, including coating to protect, repair, waterproof, stop leaks, or extend the life of the roof. Jim Wolff, a roong contractor in Englewood, contacted the county June 4, saying there is roong work being done on Charlotte County buildings by unlicensed roong contractors. He also alleged that County paints self into cornerBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERPAINTS | 12 PHOTO PROVIDEDThe 66 people arrested as part of Operation Summer Heat were tagged with a total of 335 drug-related charges.

Lee James Marshall, 32, allegedly smashed out the glass front doors to Koos Kitchen, TGI Sundae and Lickity Split Cafe located on the 2800 block of South McCall Road over the night of May 8. He made off with about $1,000 in cash from Koos Kitchen, and more than $700 from TGI Sundae, the report shows, and he rummaged around Lickity Split Cafe before leaving empty-handed. When a sheriffs detective was canvassing the area the next morning, he found near some Dumpsters a pack of half-eaten Oreo cookies with bank bags taken from TGI Sundae.

All six members of a human-smuggling organization including one from Port Charlotte and two from North Port now are awaiting sentencing. A federal jury in Tampa on Wednesday found Yoel Emilio Baez-Hernandez, 41, guilty of conspiring to bring 73 Cuban immigrants to the Port Charlotte area illegally, from the Pinar del Rio Provence, U.S. Attorney A. Lee Bentley III announced Thursday. BaezHernandez, of Hialeah, also was found guilty of successfully bringing 13 Cubans to Florida. The other ve people charged in the same case previously pleaded guilty. They all were indicted in March on myriad federal charges, and each faces serious prison time. Carlos VelazquezRoman, 52, of North Port; Edel Mesa-Hernandez, 35, of Miami; and BaezHernandez conspired to bring the Cubans over in late 2006 to early 2007, according to testimony from some of the co-conspirators and other evidence presented at Baez-Hernandezs trial. Then, from February 2007 to December 2009, they used BaezHernandezs Renegade powerboat to go to Cuba and back, and helped some immigrants get to Miami. It was brought out during trial that Baez-Hernandez and Velazquez-Roman brought 13 immigrants over from Cuba in late May 2009. But some of the Cubans then turned themselves in to immigration authorities. Mario Emilio TamayoMejias, 51, of Port Charlotte; Jasmine Santos-Martinez, 40, of North Port; and Amable Gonzalez-Mandin, 56, of Miami, are the other three individuals who were involved in some capacity, according to the U.S. Attorneys Ofce. Mesa-Hernandez will be sentenced in August, and the other ve perpetrators will be sentenced in September.Human smugglers await sentencingSTAFF REPORT SARASOTA COUNTY Attorneys for Michael W. Rice, the South Carolina man found guilty of murdering Phillipe Nahon at an Osprey hotel in 2012, have led an appeal with the 2nd District Appellate Court, hoping to have the conviction overturned. Assistant Public Defender Jerome Meisner could not be reached for comment Thursday, but Meisner previously argued that Rice suffered from a prolonged mental breakdown, which led to Nahons shooting death. Jurors did not nd the insanity defense credible during Rices weeklong trial in April at the Sarasota County Justice Center, and 12th Circuit Judge Frederick Mercurio sentenced him to life in a state prison for the crime. Nahons brother, Laurent Nahon, who owns and operates sightseeing and history tours in New York City, declined to comment for this story, although he did say he was aware the appeal had been led. Rice, 25, was found guilty of one count of rst-degree murder and four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for the murder of Nahon, 48, and threatening others with a gun. The day of Nahons murder, May 26, 2012, Rice had driven with his family 12 straight hours from his home in Seneca, S.C., to Bentleys Boutique Hotel in Osprey, where they planned to have a vacation on Memorial Day weekend. Rice and his family were in the hotel for only a few hours before he wandered down to the tiki bar and pool area, which was packed with families and revelers, and pulled a pistol out of his waistband and shot Nahon in the head, point-blank. It was the rst time the two men had ever met. Meisner argued that Rice heard voices in his head telling him to kill Nahon just moments before pulling out his pistol and ring. Rice had suffered from mental disorders his entire life, and was insane at the time of the shooting. Prosecutors instead painted a portrait of Rice as a man who suffered from anger issues and likely was heavily intoxicated at the time of Nahons murder. While its unclear what specically was said between the two men, prosecutors alluded to Rice possibly shooting Nahon because of a joke he told that offended Rices sexuality. Rice previously served as a volunteer reghter in his hometown and told investigators after the murder that he hoped to one day become a law enforcement ofcer.

Our Town Page 8 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, July 4, 2014 Boating cut-through a safety issueEditor: This is to address all those who are against the cutthrough from the Isles to Alligator Creek. I appreciate the fact that you probably are not boaters. But you need to consider what I am about to say. The cut has little to do with shing or pleasure boating. Its more an issue about safety. When a boater is out in the open harbor, there is no quick shelter from a sudden storm. Living in Florida, we all know storms can appear quickly and out of nowhere not to mention their ferocity. With the cut, we would be offered a quicker access to the safety of the PGI canals. Without it, we are at the mer cy of a longer ride to Ponce de Leon channel. Much too long of a ride! Do you golf? Do we ask that you not play so close to the houses surrounding St. Andrews because you might hurt a resident or damage a dwelling? Just because we dont play golf? Use your head! Would you want it on your conscience if a boat containing a family capsized during a sudden violent storm because there was no quick access to the PGI canals because you voted against it? There is much more of a safety issue here than just a nice day of shing in the harbor. We are talking about the possibility of life and death. Clearly, youre only concerned about you and not your neighbor. What a pity!Margaret Brennan Punta GordaHarness power of our brainEditor: We people known as humans possess a remarkable part of the anatomy called the brain. It not only interprets the world it also creates it. Everything we see, hear, touch, taste and smell is due to our brain. Our brain constantly evolves, whereas the rest of your bodys organs remain the same when you die, but not the brain. It constantly evolves. Your brain is endlessly adapted as leader, inventor, teacher, user. When you think to yourself, what shall I have for breakfast, you are tapping into the creative portion of your brain. Your brain contains over 100 billion neurons and up to a quad-trillion connections called synapses. The possible neural circuits in the brain is a number 10 followed by 1 million zeros, whereas all the known particles in the universe is the number 10 followed by 79 zeros. Yet, with all the brain power available to everyone on our planet, I ask you why are we in this mess around the world? We have the power to right the wrongs and create an environment in which all of us can survive and prosper for generations to come. All we have to do is use our brains to guide us and take advantage of all the universe has to offer. Think of the great progress we have made in the past ve generations as evidence of the exponential power of technology made possible by our brain power. Our brains can achieve Nirvana.Tony Wyan Punta Gorda Mosaics public relations workingEditor: I agree entirely with Allain Hales letter warning against accepting charity from Mosaic, the last player standing in the phosphate industry of central Florida. Its a tactic called green-washing. To distract the public from the systematic destruction of natural eco-systems inherent in strip mining, Mosaics current public relations strategy is to align themselves with environmental causes through their charitable foundation. One of the most recent recipients of Mosaics prots happened to be one of Sarasotas most prestigious attractions: Marie Selby Gardens. During the month of October 2013 the Selby Gardens website home page prominently featured the Mosaic name and logo at the top. It was particularly disillusioning to see this association, since Selby Gardens in their mission statement describe themselves as champions of environmental conservation, emphasizing the ecological importance of epiphytes and the conservation of epiphytes and their natural habitat. Do they not have any idea of the hundreds of thousands of native orchids that have perished and will perish if the latest round of Mosaic strip mine applications is permitted (50,000 acres)? Not only will the orchids themselves be destroyed by strip mining but so will all the unique and complex environmental conditions that would ever allow them to grow there again.Dennis Mader WauchulaTouchdown club thankful for helpEditor: The Lemon Bay Touchdown Club had a very successful third Annual Inshore/Offshore shing tournament on Fathers Day weekend. Lots of sh were caught, the food was great and everyone had fun. The tournament could not have been successful without the help of some great sponsors. We want to thank Gasparilla Marina and its staff for all they did in the weeks leading up to the tournament and all they did that weekend. Norma Jeans Sports Bar & Grill Englewood provided excellent food for the Captains Meeting, and owner Emerson King and Englewood Community Hospital each sponsored a boat for football coaches. Wed also like to thank Kimberlin Roong, American Precast, Hinck Private Wealth Management, Lock N Key restaurant, Key Agency, Englewood Ford, The EndZone, Mirrolure, Monarch Printing Dock Off/Mary Kay Norus and Premier Tees, Englewood Glass & Mirror, WaterLine magazine, the Placida Rotary, Leo Piger Construction, Xpertech Auto Repair, Sarasota Ofce Solutions, Don DeWitt and Associates, Sea Breeze Wine & Spirits, Bobarinos Pizzeria, Farlows on the Water, Ricaltinis restaurant, Boca Grande Marina, Don Maske, Underwater Fish Light, Gem Plumbing, Babes Ace Hardware, Kimal Lumber and Englewood YMCA. Thanks also to all the anglers who shed and all the volunteers who helped. The LBTD club supports the Lemon Bay High School Mantas football team. We meet monthly. For more information, visit www. LBTDClub.com or look for Lemon Bay Touchdown Club on Facebook.Dan Reigle President, LBTD Club EnglewoodNothing but baloney from the presidentEditor: I watched the presidents press meeting concerning immigration reform today and have to say that I havent heard this much BS since President Clinton told America he did not have sex with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky. Over a half hour his teleprompter told him over and over again that he had to act because the Republicans were not. They are right not to enter discussions on the Senates comprehensive immigration reform proposals. Why? Heck, he has even failed to faithfully execute Obamacare a law written and passed exclusively by Democrats. Reviewing what his teleprompter told him he could use his executive powers for right now what did we hear? Hes going to redeploy Homeland Security assets from the heart of the country to the southern border. (Big deal. No one would argue with his authority to redeploy existing assets. What was missing was a discussion of the mission. Is it to close the border or help the illegals link up with their illegal relatives?) Then referring to the teleprompter he told us that he was instructing the Justice and Homeland Security departments to look for other action he could take and get back to him by the end of the summer. (Are you kidding? There is no way that he doesnt already have those options, but, this being an election year, wants to drag this out and get more press opportunities to tell us how evil the Republicans are.)Ron Chapman Punta GordaCombat wounded vets recognized by countyWith more than 25,000 veterans living in Char lotte County, a number that surely rises during the snowbird season, it is tting and proper for the county to recognize their service and provide assistance navigating the various government programs. The assistance is provided daily by the four-person veterans ser vices division of the countys human services department. Among dozens of provided services, the division helps eligible veterans le Veterans Administration claims, obtain disabled licenses, vehicle tags and ID cards, service records and awards, and education and homestead benets. Last year, the division teamed up with the public works departments signage crew (which includes six veterans) to install 40 signs designating preferred parking for Purple Heart recipients. Veterans Services Ofcer Dave Donohew spearheaded the project, coordinating with the Wounded Warrior Project to obtain the signs free of charge. Last week, Donohew was present when the County Commission awarded its rst Combat Wounded Veteran Recognition to U.S. Army MSG Ret. Walter R. Levasseur. A recipient of the Silver Star, two Bronze Stars and two Purple Hearts, Levasseur served two tours of duty in the Vietnam War. The 79-year-old Rotonda resident was the subject of a Sun prole by War Tales author Don Moore in 2009. The wounded veteran recognition ceremonies will be held monthly. Nomination forms are available at the veterans service ofce and recipients will be determined by the Charlotte County Veterans Council executive board. As we celebrate our nations birthday this week, we are reminded of the price our veterans have paid to preserve what our Founding Fathers gave us. Tens of thousands of those men and women walk among us daily. Were pleased to see the county taking steps large and small to honor their service.Into pantheon of MulleteersIn many places, Citizen of the Year awards are earnest honor ics bestowed by local governments or chambers of commerce at semi-formal functions. Englewood is different, though. Its a casual kind of place. Proudly. It is entirely tting, then, that the local version of the Citizen of the Year is called the Smoked Mullet Award. The annual recipient is announced at an informal luncheon where owered shirts prevail. The award winner receives a package of smoked mullet and a bottle of something called Red Mullet Wine. And applause of the assembled local dignitaries so to speak. The award and induction into the Secret Society of Smoked Mullets was conceived nearly two decades ago by marketing professional and then-Chamber of Commerce president Nita Edmondson-Cole as a fun, but prestigious honor for lifetime contributions to community life. Emphasis on fun. There is nothing secret about this society, really; no special handshake or door knocks or hidden agendas. The rst recipient was Dr. John Flower, the towns rst dentist. Mullet Hall of Famers include former Charlotte County Commissioner Mac Horton, Don Platt, Bill Stiver Sr., Eunice Albritton and two Dignams, Tom and David. A whos who of the community. The 18th inductee, announced last week, was Diana Harris, whose oral histories and columns in the Englewood Sun are the basis of many local residents under standing and appreciation of local history. Truly Mullet-worthy.Not caught in an outright lieEditor: I nd one letter-writers attempt to involve the liberals in the tragic decision to invade Iraq rather pathetic and Im a staunch Republican. He emphasizes the fact that both sides of the aisle were fooled. Of course, they were fooled. All they had to work with was the intelligence provided by Bush and Cheney. Lies? I think so. They had this great new toy presented to them (the U.S. military) and just had to play with it. Either that or they were incredibly naive. Whichever, they were clearly not qualied to run the country. Im rather embarrassed to admit that I have been terribly naive too. I actually voted for Obama. In his campaign, he kept declaring that the rst thing he would do if elected was to bring the troops home. How many years did it actually take? And even then he left a lot of them behind. I had hoped that we might nally have a true statesman in ofce. Instead we got another political hack. At least Bush and Cheney were smart enough not to be caught in an out-and-out lie.John M.

The Sun /Friday, July 4, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINT As Floridas 2014 legislative session ended, the much-touted springs bill dried up as many predicted. The bipartisan bill pushed by several Senate co-sponsors couldnt navigate through the manmade dam in the Florida House. This wasnt the only disappointment for those committed to protecting Floridas natural resources. With a record high state budget of $77 bil lion, hopes ran high among those concerned about springs protection, Everglades restoration and water resources that this might be the session that we return to the environmental funding of the past. Then, Florida Forever was fully funded at $300 million and Water Protection and Sustainability received the full $100 million originally intended. This year, not even close. While the Florida Legislature did fund some water projects that individual legislators requested, it failed to fund environmental programs that look at whole ecosystems and ongoing projects. One notable exception was consider able funding granted for the Indian River Lagoon restoration. Another cause for celebration actually came from the federal government. In early June, President Obama signed a big water-projects bill that provides funding for some Everglades restoration projects. The Water Resources Reform and Development Act will allow state and federal partners to start new restoration projects in the River of Grass after seven years of stagnation. Its hard to believe the best environmental news for Florida came from Washington, D.C., the bastion of divisiveness, obstruction and inaction. Why cant Florida provide responsible environmental policy and consistent funding? The fundamentals are in place. Our state revenues are increasing and our budget reached a record high. And documentary stamp revenue, the customary funding source for environmental and infrastructure funding, is also on the rise after years of a slowdown in the housing market. And over the years good people fought hard and accomplished great things. Florida Forever, the highly popular and successful voluntary land acquisition program, is still enshrined in state law, providing a strong framework for conservation efforts. The Water Sustainability and Protection Act set forth a solid blueprint to ensure an adequate and safe supply of water. Its still the law of the land and focuses on both water quality and quantity. It created a matching fund program with local governments to address their water supply needs. It was my hope the proposed springs legislation would join Florida Forever and the Water Sustainability Act in Floridas statutes and that all three would receive the dedicated and continuous funding thats necessary to restore and maintain our natural resources and quality of life. Why didnt that happen? The springs bill failed, in part, because the incoming House speaker wants it done on his watch. Of course there are many user groups, some with deep pockets, that want a say. Accommodating them runs the risk that good springs protection legislation gets watered down. The problem with water, land, springs and Everglades policy is that Florida has no long-term stability and continuity despite the hard-fought battles to put a funding source and meaningful legislation in place. And, one might argue, no backbone to say no to the special interests that take a parochial view of our environmental policies. As leadership in the House and Senate changes, the commitment to water resource funding ebbs and ows. When the economy slows, the environmental programs are the rst to take a hit. When legislators are term-limited and leave ofce, new legislators need to be educated on the environment and, frankly, not too many are interested. But they should be. Water is vital to our very survival and our economy. While the governor and legislators acknowledge the importance of an adequate water supply, their words are cheap. While they sing the praises of springs protection, their inaction hits a sour note. Were reghting the same battles. Were not making the forward progress that we once did. Empty words and promises arent going to restore the Everglades, protect our springs, increase our water supply, or clean up our lakes, rivers and estuaries. Its time for a sincere commitment to our resources backed by dedicated, sustainable and continuous funding. Frustrated Floridians are looking for an environmental hero. Clearly, its not going to come from our current leaders. Paula Dockery is a syndicated columnist who served in the Florida Legislature for 16 years as a Republican from Lakeland. Readers may reach her at PBDockery@ gmail.com.Floridas water resources looking for a hero Paula Dockery A Quinnipiac poll that is getting some attention today nds that Obama is rst as worst president since World War II. Ignore those polls! This new Quinnipiac poll does provide further evidence that President Barack Obamas mild rally that began late last year has stalled or reversed. Hes at 40 percent approval in this survey. More importantly, the HuffPollster average has him at 44 percent. Their less smoothing version, which is more sensitive to recent changes, has him a bit below 43 percent. Those arent strong numbers. But the questions about who are the best and worst post-WWII presidents are useless. What they mainly show is that Republicans are far more unied around a single story than are Democrats. Ill explain. On best president, Republicans are unied around Ronald Reagan: 66 percent pick him, with no one else getting more than 6 percent. Republicans are similarly in agreement on worst president, with Obama clobbering Jimmy Carter, 63 percent to 14 percent, and no one else better than 5 percent. Democrats, however, have a competitive race for best president: Bill Clinton, at 34 percent, John Kennedy and Obama, at 18 percent. For worst president, Democrats again split between George W. Bush, at 54 percent, and Richard Nixon, at 20 percent. With Republicans united and Democrats split, the winners simply reect that Republican unity, so Reagan wins best and Obama worst. That would be the case even if Obama was quite a bit more popular. This might reect more efcient Republican transmission of talking points from elites to the rank-and-le. But it might just as well reect the happenstances of history. Democrats have several reasonable candidates to choose from. Clinton and Kennedy were very popular; Lyndon Johnson and Harry Truman had impressive accomplishments, along with the wars that made each unpopular while in ofce. Republicans? Theyre not going to choose Richard Nixon or, most likely, Gerald Ford. Both Bushes were unpopular while in ofce, and dont really have the historical stature to overcome that. Dwight Eisenhower was an excellent president, but his views were very removed from contemporary mainstream conser vatism, and at any rate the 1950s are ancient history to most respondents. Of course theyll pick Reagan. And its no surprise that they choose the current occupant of the Oval Ofce over long-gone Carter, either, let alone the popular Clinton. All of that should work out the way it has without any Fox News prompting. And none of it tells us anything interesting about public opinion of recent presidents. For example, do Republicans ignore Ike because he isnt conservative, because his presidency was too far in the past, or because they just like Reagan better? We cant even begin to guess from these data. The comparison questions just dont work. Jonathan Bernstein is a Bloomberg View columnist covering U.S. politics.President polls tell us nothing Bloomberg ViewJonathan Bernstein Cut off Dick Cheney. Why cant we? Who would have thought that Iraq imploding would give the mountebanks who tricked us into war a chance to rear their heads and seek rehabilitation somehow grabbing onto the hellish spiral as proof that they were right in their original wrongness? But, then, they did always create their own reality spun from grandiosity. They are shamefully showcased on cable TV, which has so much air time to ll that it doesnt care if its hot air. They are once more pounding on the fear button and warning that America needs to attack or risk being emasculated by Middle Eastern terror ists. Doesnt Vice know that most Americans, especially the Bushes, cannot stand his demented scaremongering anymore? Even Fox News anchors are now pressing him with skeptical questions about the war. Asked by Foxs Elisabeth Hasselbeck if he thought we could be on track for something worse than 9/11, Cheney replied, I think thats a possibility. Hes always busy predicting another 9/11. Too bad he and W. ignored warnings about the rst one. Cheney is not only responsible for Iraq melting down and Afghanistan being mucked up. He can also claim credit for so exhausting John Waynes America that a skeptic on military intervention, Rand Paul, is a credible candidate for the Republican nomination. That causes the man without a pulse to pulsate with bile. Shooting Paul in the face, Cheney told Fox: The Republican Party traditionally has had the reputation as the go-to guys with respect to national security, and we want to reclaim that mantle for the party. Darth Vader is campaigning for validation with his cowboy hat and Sith apprentice, as Jon Stewart calls Liz Cheney. Liz acted in her failed Wyoming Senate bid as Dick did with the globe: swaggering and pre-emptorally blowing off allies and foes. So she has her own fences to mend if she wants a career in politics. Their idea of a charm offensive is to growl and spit and create something called The Alliance for a Strong America, a group demanding a more chesty foreign policy in a statement redolent of the manifesto that neocons and other Republicans waved back during the Clinton administration. Speaking to Fox News Megyn Kelly and to conservative radio host Chris Salcedo, Liz blamed President Barack Obama for the chaos wrought by her father and W., basely claiming that he was intentionally trying to weaken America. When Bill Clinton said on NBCs Meet the Press that it was unseemly for Dick Cheney to attack the Obama administration for not doing an adequate job of cleaning up the mess that he made, the venomous Liz tweeted billclinton calls Dick Cheney unseemly. Well, I guess he would know. (Not much of a denial by Liz.) The creepy comeback scenario is playing out with the Cheneys, Paul Wolfowitz (who absurdly rejects the moniker of architect,) Bill Kristol, Paul Bremer, Robert Kagan (who prefers the term liberal interventionist to neocon) and Elliott Abrams (who actually had the chutzpah to write a Politico Magazine piece about Obama titled The Man Who Broke the Middle East). As a cherry on top of our $3 trillion disaster, there on the front page of The Times on Tuesday was Ahmad Chalabi, the neocons cagey partner in fakery and initial choice to replace Saddam Hussein. He took millions of dollars from the CIA, founded and was accused of defrauding the second-biggest bank in Jordan and sold the Bush administration a bill of goods on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, Rod Nordland wrote. Yet now Chalabi is a serious candidate for prime minister. In his book about Chalabi, Arrows of the Night, Richard Bonin, a Minutes producer, wrote this about the secular Shiite who managed to manipulate Washington into getting rid of Saddam, thinking he could return and take his place: There has never been a foreigner more crucially involved in a decision by the United States to go to war than Chalabi. When Bonin asked Chalabi who used whom, in his unholy alliance with the neocons who later scorned him, he answered: It was a commonality of interest, a convergence of conceptions about the future. Just when you thought our wreck in Iraq could not get any more sulfurous, The Times James Risen revealed that a State Department inquiry into the out-of-control Blackwater protection brigade was stied by U.S. diplomats in Baghdad and then abandoned after Blackwaters top manager threatened that he could kill the governments chief investigator and no one could or would do anything about it as we were in Iraq. Asked on HuffPost Live on Tuesday whether Cheney was immoral or amoral, Lawrence Wilkerson, the regretful former aide to Colin Powell, replied amoral. Immorality is something that can be ferreted out, checked and balanced, he said. Amorality is an altogether different affair, especially when youre exploiting the politics of fear in order to carry out state purposes, which is what Dick Cheneys forte is. At least the neocons nally found the WMD warped mouthy discourse. Maureen Dowd is a New York Times columnist.

Our Town Page 10 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, July 4, 2014 VIEWPOINT If this past weeks ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court means that hecklers can confront women at the door of an abortion clinic, it will come from a court that operates in a building with a large sterile buffer zone devoid of free speech. It still remains to be sorted out what will happen to the 100-foot quiet zone established by the city of West Palm Beach outside the Presidential Womens Center. The fate of that quiet zone was put in legal limbo Thursday when the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a Massachusetts law that set up a 35-foot protest-free zone outside abortion clinics in that state. U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts, writing the majority opinion in the unanimous ruling, reasoned that abortion clinics have ways to ensure the public safety for workers and clients without resorting to limiting free speech in the public areas around their buildings. Petitioners wish to converse with their fellow citizens about an important subject on the public streets and sidewalks sites that have hosted discussions about the issues of the day throughout history, Roberts wrote. The quiet zone around the West Palm Beach clinic followed an arson attack on the building nine years ago. The citys first response to the attack was to enact a 20-foot protest-free buffer zone around the building. When that was struck down in federal court, the city opted to protect the clinic by the noise ordinance that exists today. The irony here is that the same Supreme Court justices who extol the virtues of an unfettered and robust discussion of issues in public places have a free-speech buffer zone around their own building thats far bigger than the zone around the abortion clinics they find too restrictive. The courts footballfield-sized marble plaza in front of its building is open to the public, as long as people arent there to complain about anything. No person shall engage in a demonstration within the Supreme Court building and grounds, the rules say. The term demonstration includes demonstrations, picketing, speechmaking, marching, holding vigils or religious services and all other like forms of conduct that involve the communication or expression of views or grievances, engaged in by one or more persons, the conduct of which is reasonably likely to draw a crowd of onlookers. Harold Hodge Jr. of Maryland was standing on the public plaza outside the U.S. Supreme Court building three years ago wearing a sign that said The U.S. Gov. Allows Police to Illegally Murder and Brutalize African Americans And Hispanic People. After Hodge refused to move further away from the building by standing on the public sidewalk, he was arrested. Hodge sued in federal court, and a federal judge ruled last year that the Supreme Courts restrictedspeech area on the public plaza was too broad, and the 1949 law that established it was unconstitutional. The ban on processions could apply to, and provide criminal penalties for, any group parading or assembling for any conceivable purpose, even for example, the familiar line of preschool students from federal agency daycare centers, holding hands with chaper ones, parading on the plaza on their first field trip to the Supreme Court, wrote Judge Beryl A. Howell of the Federal District Court in Washington, D.C. Rather than agreeing, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a regulation last summer that affirmed the need for the freespeech restriction in the plaza, citing that it was necessary to protect the Supreme Court building and to maintain suitable order and decorum on the grounds. The Supreme Courts ruling in the Massachusetts abortion clinic case makes a big deal about keeping public sidewalks open for free speech. But its an argument made by justices who know that the public sidewalk in front of their own building is a remote Siberia maintained by the creation of a speech-restricted buffer zone in the large public plaza that leads to their front door. Frank Cerabino writes for The Palm Beach Post. Email: frank_ cerabino@pbpost.com.Supreme Court has buffer zone, why not abortion clinics? Frank Cerabino Seldom in Amer ican history has the Supreme Court unanimously rejected positions advocated by presidents administrations. But in this respect at least, President Obama has produced the fundamental transformation he promised in his 2008 campaign. Over the last three years, the Court has rejected Obama administration positions repeatedly in unanimous 9-0 decisions. A review of these cases reveals much about the governing philosophy of the Obama administration. One thing is abundantly clear, namely that this administration has a crabbed view of the First Amendment right of free exercise of religion. That is appar ent not only in Junes 5-4 decision ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby that the Obamacare contraception mandate is trumped by the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Its even clearer in the 2012 Hosanna-Tabor Church v. EEOC case, in which the Court unanimously said that churches have the right to select their own cler gy. The administrations position, that government could decide who counts as clergy, was described as amazing by Justice (and former Obama solicitor gener al) Elena Kagan. The First Amendment freedom of speech is not highly valued by the administration either. In McCullen v. Coakley, decided last month, all nine justices overturned the Massachusetts law, supported by the administration, outlawing protests within 35 feet of an abortion clinic. Property rights are also disfavored by the Obama administration. A unanimous court said the Fifth Amendment requires compensation when the government repeatedly floods its land in Arkansas Game & Fish Commission v. U.S. in 2012. That year, the court in Sackett v. EPA also unanimously ruled that landowners could sue without risking a $75,000 per day fine to challenge a government order blocking construction in a supposed wetland. And in 2013, the court in Horne v. USDA ruled that raisin farmers could sue for damages from confiscation of hundreds of pounds of raisins without first paying a $483,000 fine. Nor is the Obama administration particularly respectful of the Fourth Amendment prohibition of unreasonable searches and seizures. In 2012, a unanimous Court in U.S. v. Jones rejected its contention that the government could attach a GPS tracking device to a car without a warrant. That was followed by last months Riley v. California, in which a unanimous Court rejected the position, supported by the Obama Justice Department, that police could search without a warrant the cellphone of a person under arrest. Chief Justice John Roberts pointed out that smartphones contain much more personal information than the crumpled cigarette package whose seizure the Court upheld in 1973. A unanimous Supreme Court has also rejected Obama administration prosecutions that went beyond the letter of the law, including double taxation of a firm that paid foreign tax (PPL Corp. v. IRS, 2012), an extension of the statute of limitation against securities fraud (Gabelli v. SEC, 2012) and the boundless reading (in Chief Justice Roberts words) of a statute implementing the Chemical Weapons Treaty to prosecute a woman who sprayed toxic chemicals on objects likely to be touched by her husbands paramour (Bond v. US, 2014). If this is an administration that stretches criminal statutes beyond their actual words, it is also happy to ignore the words of the Constitution and of the Senate, as a unanimous court ruled in Noel Canning v. NLRB. Obama claimed that he could nominate three members of the National Labor Relations Board without Senate confirmation under the Constitutions clause permitting such nominations during the recess of the Congress. But he did so while the Senate was going into session every three days. The Senate is in session when it says it is, wrote Justice Stephen Breyer. The increased proportion of unanimous Supreme Court decisions the highest proportion over the last year since 1940 may owe something to Roberts striving for unanimity and to justices willingness to decide cases on narrow grounds on which all nine can agree. But it also owes something to what Kagan might describe as the administrations chutzpah, a word she has used in decisions. The cases cited here involve different principles, statutes and constitutional provisions. But in each, we see an administration inclined to lawlessness, to statism if not author itarianism, a government that is bossy and eager to push people around. Americans have evidently noticed. In a Rasmussen poll, a star tling 44 percent of voters agree that Obama has been less faithful to the Constitution than most presidents. Theres reason to conclude that all nine Supreme Court justices agree. Michael Barone is a senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner.

Our Town Page 12 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, July 4, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE Mexico, a Virginia-class submarine out of Groton, Conn., before his transfer to Old Ironsides. My tour of duty was ending on the New Mexico, so I thought about my next duty station, Way said. I was looking at my options. I could have gone to a squadron, another sub, or been a recruiter. I decided to try out as a member of the crew of the Constitution. Way submitted a packet of his service history that included an endorsement from his commanding ofcer and had an interview with the ships command master chief and was ultimately selected to serve aboard her. Docked at the Boston Naval Shipyard in Boston, the USS Constitution has been designated a National Historic Landmark. Originally equipped with 44 guns, she carried between 52 and 55 when the War of 1812 broke out. Today, Way said, she has 49 40-mm guns using blank rounds. They resemble the old guns they used during the War of 1812, he said. A question most often asked about Old Ironsides is how she could not have been severely damaged by the Guerrieres rounds? When the Constitution was constructed, three different types of wood were used. The inner and outer layers of her sides were made from white oak and the middle section was live oak. Live oak could only be found in Georgia at that time, Way said. That is what gave her the strength to withstand the shot and be victorious in the battle. An estimated 8 to 15 percent of the Constitutions original timber, all of it under neath the waterline, is still original and has not been replaced, according to Way. An outside agency does the maintenance on the old vessel to keep her aoat. When Old Ironsides does venture out into Boston Harbor, it is usually towed by tugboats. The last time she used sail power was in August 2012. On June 6, we took her out for about four hours on her annual turn-around cruise, Way said. We go out to Castle Island in Boston Harbor and dock her in the opposite direction when we return so she can weather evenly on both her sides. When the Constitution is at sea, Ways job is the Ofcer of the Deck to ensure the crews safety and to recognize visitors when they come aboard. On July 10, 1976, to celebrate Americas 200th birthday, the majestic 203-foot USS Constitution led a parade of tall ships into Boston Harbor. Every minute, her guns let loose a deafening roar that had not been heard in a century. In 1997, on her 200th birthday, the mighty Old Ironsides once again was under her own power. On July 21, 1997, she red a 21-gun salute honoring the United States near Fort Independence in Boston Harbor. To Way, serving aboard such an historical vessel is the opportunity of a lifetime. This is something I can tell my grandchildren about, he said. I served aboard the USS Constitution.ABOARDFROM PAGE 1 PHOTO PROVIDED BY NAVY SPECIALIST PETER D. MELKUSElectronics Technician 2nd Class Adam Way, a native of Port Charlotte, is part of a hand-picked Navy crew serving on the worlds oldest commissioned warship aoat, the USS Constitution. The 218-year-old Boston-based ship was named by President George Washington to honor the Constitution of the United States of America. Famously known as Old Ironsides, the Constitution is a wooden-hulled, three-masted heavy frigate that originally launched in 1797 as one of six original frigates authorized for construction by the Naval Armament Act of 1794. Freedom Swimmers may get wet a little ear lier than expected today as a westerly ow of wind likely will bring with it a chance of early morning thunderstorms and rain, according to the National Weather Services Tampa ofce. The westerly ow of wind is a change in the typical summer weather pattern of afternoon storms, said Dan Noah, an NWS meteorologist. As we move into the afternoon, most of the activity should move inland, he said. Unpredictable currents and rip tides that are typical occurrences along the coast during storms should not affect the Freedom Swim because it takes place inside Charlotte Harbor, across the mouth of the Peace River. However, lightning could be an issue, Noah said. If you can hear thunder, youre close enough to the storm to get struck by lightning, he said. The swim is set to begin at 9 a.m. on the north bank (Charlotte Harbor side) of the Peace River near the A.W. Gilchrist (southbound U.S. 41) Bridge. The event will go off as planned rain, storm or shine, said Michael Haymans, a founding swimmer. I think well have fewer people come out if they think were going to have lightning, Haymans said. But this swim is about personal responsibility. Rip tides could be an issue for anyone who opts to head out to area beaches during the morning hours. Anyone at the beaches should be aware of the rip tides and keep a close eye on any children swimming in the Gulf, Noah said. People should probably swim at a beach with a lifeguard, he added. However the rip tides should begin to fade in the afternoon, Noah said. Although the Freedom Swim could turn into a wet event even before participants jump into the water, the storms should move out of the Punta Gorda area in time for the Independence Day activities to begin in the late morning and through the nighttime hours, Noah said. Skies along the coastal areas should begin to clear in the early after noon, but the daytime high should be around 93 degrees. The humidity should make the temperature feel closer to 100 degrees, Noah said. People need to make sure they drink a lot of uids, and maybe head into an air-conditioned building during the hot parts of the afternoon, he added. The temperature should begin to drop in the evening, and the nighttime low should be around 77 degrees. The easterly winds likely will return to the area Saturday, causing the weather to return to a more typical summer pattern, Noah said. Saturday should be mostly sunny, with a daytime high around 92 degrees. There is a 40 percent chance of storms forming mainly after noon. Saturday night should be mostly cloudy, with a nighttime low around 75 degrees. Sunday should be partly sunny, with a high around 89 degrees. Thunderstorms should begin to form in the afternoon hours, Noah said. Sunday night should be mostly cloudy, with a low around 75 degrees. The easterly winds were responsible for a funnel cloud near Nokomis around 8 a.m. Thursday, Noah said. The funnel cloud was spotted by local law enforcement, but it did not touch down, nor cause any damage, he said.Email: pfallon@sun-herald.comEarly morning storms in todays forecastBy PAUL FALLONSTAFF WRITERthis practice has been going on for years without any proper permitting. As a licensed roong contractor, Wolff objects to the county holding contractors to a certain standard that its own building department doesnt meet. I must do work within the scope of my license, and Im required to pay for permits. A contractor doesnt get away with it if they screw up, Wolff said. Its hypocritical for the county to hold me and other contractors accountable. Moreover, he is demanding there must be consequences. If there were permitting violations or any unlicensed practices taking place, Wolff wants the contractors, as well as county employees responsible for the oversight, to be held accountable with appropriate nes and other measures. As a 17-year county resident, Wolff also is upset about wasting taxpayer money for a job that doesnt add to the life of a roof. I know theyre just putting acrylic paint up on the roof. It doesnt stand up to rain. It breaks down and washes away, he said.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comPAINTSFROM PAGE 1 pointed out drug use often leads to other offenses. Of the 66 persons arrested, 64 have prior criminal histories ranging from domestic violence, all the way up to murder, he said. A lot of these people are very bad, so Im very happy were getting them off the streets. Some local attorneys who represent clients accused of drug charges have questioned whether lower-level busts help law enforcement work their way up to suppliers, which they say is the main problem. Right now, the Sheriffs Ofce drug unit has some guys in there that are really sharp, said local attorney Chris Brown, who has been representing defendants in local drug-related cases for a decade. They are applying techniques that are tried and true rolling street-level dealers to get them to work for them. But it does not catch the big guys, because they dont sell to people they dont know, and they dont sell hand-to-hand on the street. Brown said when one street-level dealer is caught, another one will take his spot because everyone thinks they can do it. Prummell, however, said rounding up the lesser criminals does help law enforcement work their way up the chain. Some of these (Operation Summer Heat arrestees) may be considered small-time dealers or just users, the sheriff said. But thats where you start to go after the big guys. We are very heavily involved with surrounding agencies, state agencies and federal agencies on much bigger cases. As a whole, crime is down in Charlotte County for the rst six months of 2014. Thats because were policing smart, Prummell said. Were targeting out criminals we know who they are, where they are, and were getting pretty good at knowing where theyre going to hit. Although Summer Heat netted the most arrests in a single operation since Prummell became sheriff in January 2013, about 20 suspects on the CCSOs list of targets were not captured. CCSO Special Sections Commander Lt. Brian Harrison who also was present at Thursdays press conference said many different narcotics are represented by the drug dealers and users in the area. Theres been a reduction in the pill sale, delivery and usage, he said. But Ive seen an increase in methamphetamines, primarily, and cocaine. Harrison said most of the drugs being sold and abused in Charlotte originate from other counties.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comHEATFROM PAGE 1 PHOTO PROVIDEDLeft: Christopher Scalisi, 41, of Port Charlotte, is questioned by Charlotte County Sheris detectives after his arrest June 24 on myriad drug charges, as part of a weeklong narcotics roundup.

See page 5.10 things to know WASHINGTON A sur prisingly robust job market is energizing the 5-year-old U.S. recovery and driving the economy closer to full health. Employers added 288,000 jobs in June and helped cut the unemployment rate to 6.1 percent, the lowest since 2008. It was the fth straight gain above 200,000 the best such stretch since the late 1990s tech boom. The stock market signaled its approval. The Dow Jones industrial average surged 92 points to top 17,000 for the rst time. The breadth and consistency of the job growth are striking in part because of how poorly the year began. The economy shrank at a steep 2.9 percent annual rate in the January-March quarter as a harsh winter contributed to the sharpest contraction since the depths of the recession. Yet employers have shrugged off that setback. Theyve kept hiring. The unemployment rate dipped from 6.3 percent in May to its lowest level since the nancial crisis struck with full force in the fall of 2008, when the Wall Street rm Lehman Brothers went bankrupt.Economy exhibits vitalityBy JOSH BOAKAP ECONOMICS WRITERJune jobs report shows US recovery is acceleratingVITALITY | 4 KILL DEVIL HILLS, N.C. A strengthening Hurricane Arthur forced thousands of vacationers on the North Carolina coast to abandon their Independence Day plans while cities farther up the East Coast rescheduled reworks displays threatened by rain from the storm. Arthur strengthened to a Category 2 hurricane Thursday night, with winds of 100 mph as the storm neared North Carolina. Little change was expected in the storms strength Thursday night and Friday, and Arthur was expected to weaken as it travels northward and slings rain along the East Coast. The annual Boston Pops Fourth of July concert and reworks show was rescheduled for Thursday because of potential heavy rain from Arthur, while reworks displays in New Jersey, Maine and New Hampshire were postponed until later in the weekend. Either later Thursday or ear ly Friday, Arthur was expected to pass over or near North Carolina and its Outer Banks a 200-mile string of narrow barrier islands with about 57,000 permanent residents.

But even if the exact center doesnt go over you, you will experience impacts tonight. The weather is going downhill in North Carolina, even as we speak, said Rick Knabb, the director of the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami.

The 16-page document comes in advance of an agency workshop Monday in Tallahassee that is drawing heavy attention. The draft rule, generally considered a starting point, outlines how the state intends to implement a new law, signed by Gov. Scott, that made Florida one of nearly two dozen states that permit some sort of marijuana. Floridas law restricts legal marijuana to strains that are low in euphoria-inducing tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, and high in cannabadiol, or CBD. The low-THC, high-CBD strain is purported to eliminate or dramatically reduce life-threatening seizures in children with severe epilepsy.

Page 2 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, July 4, 2014 WORLD NEWS JERUSALEM (AP) The Israeli military rushed additional forces to its southern border with the Gaza Strip on Thursday, vowing to halt a growing wave of rocket re from the Palestinian territory, while new clashes erupted in east Jerusalem in response to the death of an Arab boy who Palestinians say was killed by Israeli extremists. Israel said the show of force on the Gaza border was a defense measure. But persistent rocket re raised the prospects of a tough Israeli response, with the military saying more than 40 rockets or mortar shells were red from Hamas-controlled Gaza on Thursday. Tensions have been high since three Israeli teenagers were abducted in the West Bank on June 12, sparking a massive manhunt that ended with the discovery of their bodies early this week. Israel has blamed Hamas for the abductions and launched a crackdown on the Islamic militant group in the West Bank, drawing rocket attacks out of Gaza and Israeli airstrikes in a near-daily cycle of retaliation. The situation deteriorated further on Wednesday after the burned body of a Palestinian youth, whose identity was conrmed Thursday as Mohammed Abu Khdeir, was found in a forest after he was seized near his home in east Jerusalem. The Palestinians accused Israeli extremists of killing the teen in a revenge attack over the deaths of the Israeli youths. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tried Thursday to calm the situation, condemning Abu Khdeirs killing and vowing to nd the attackers. We dont know yet the motives or the identities of the perpetrators, but we will. We will bring to justice the criminals responsible for this despicable crime whoever they may be, Netanyahu said in a speech celebrating U.S. Independence Day at the American Embassy in Tel Aviv. Murder, riots, incitement, vigilantism, they have no place in our democracy. Following an especially intense barrage of rocket re, including two projectiles that hit homes in the southern Israeli town of Sderot, Israel sent tanks, artillery and ground forces to the bor der area early Thursday, defense ofcials said. Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, an Israeli military spokesman, called the move defensive and said he hoped the rocket re would halt. Everything we are doing is to de-escalate the situation but on the other hand be prepared for actions that can develop if they do not de-escalate, Lerner said. Israel has launched two large-scale operations in Gaza in recent years in response to rocket re on its south, most recently in 2012. The ghting ended in a cease-re. The Israeli military said 34 of the rockets or mortar shells red Thursday exploded inside Israel while the rest blew up prematurely inside Gaza or were shot down.Israel rushes forces to southern border with Gaza AP PHOTOIsraeli soldiers stand at a damaged home after a rocket red by Palestinian militants in Gaza, landed in the southern town of Sderot Thursday. | WORLD NEWS BRIEFSKurdish leader calls for independence voteBAGHDAD (AP) The leader of Iraqs Kurdish north called on lawmakers in the self-rule regions parliament to take the necessary steps toward holding a referendum on independence, a move that would likely spell the end of a unied Iraq. Iraqs largely autonomous Kurdish territory has long been a beacon of stability and prosperity, while much of the rest of the country has been mired in violence and political turmoil. But the Sunni insurgent blitz that has engulfed Iraq in recent weeks has provided an opening to Iraqs Kurds to seize long-disputed territory and a better chance than ever of achieving the goal of their own country. Massoud Barzani, the president of the Kurdistan Regional Government, told the regions legislature in a speech Thursday to set up an electoral commission to hurry up and prepare for a referendum on self-determination.Ukraines president shakes up military leadershipKIEV, Ukraine (AP) Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko shook up his faltering military Thursday, appointing a new defense minister and top general while speaking angrily about the years of decay and corruption that left the forces unable to deal effectively with the well-armed eastern insurgency. His tougher tone, analysts say, reects public pressure to continue the ght against the insurgents in the regions bordering Russia even with a rickety military thats had little success. Poroshenko denounced the complete collapse of the governments ability to supply the armed forces in a sometimes angry, nger-wagging speech in parliament. He won quick approval for his choice of former top police ofcial Valery Heletey as defense minister, replacing Mikhailo Koval. He also tapped Lt. Gen. Viktor Muzhenko as chief of the militarys general staff and Yury Kosyuk, an agriculture magnate and one of Ukraines richest men, to oversee defense issues in the presidential administration and to help purge the army of thieves and grafters. Accusations of corruption have been rife as Kievs operation against the rebels continues.Chinas Xi arrives in South KoreaBEIJING (MCT) Chinese President Xi Jinping made his rst state visit to South Korea on Thursday, part of a courtship aimed at strengthening his hand in dealing with North Korea and Japan. South Korean President Park Geun-hye greeted Xi upon his arrival in Seoul, the fth time the two have met since they both assumed power last year. During the two-day visit, Xi, Park and other South Korean ofcials are expected to discuss a possible trade agreement and mutual concerns over North Koreas nuclear weapons program. Chinese news outlets and ofcials have been hyping the meeting for days, partly because it marks the rst time in two decades of normalized relations between Beijing and Seoul that a Chinese leader has visited South Korea before he has visited the north.Extremist group takes Syrian towns, key oil fieldBEIRUT (AP) The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant marched across eastern Syria near the bor der with Iraq on Thursday, seizing towns, villages and the countrys largest oil eld as rival rebel factions gave up the ght, activists said. The extremist group which controls large parts of northern Syria and captured vast swaths of northern and western Iraq last month is now in almost full control of a corridor stretching from the Syrian border town of Boukamal to the government-controlled provincial capital of Deir el-Zour to the northwest. Led by an ambitious Iraqi militant known as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant this week unilaterally declared the establishment of an Islamic state, or caliphate, in the lands it has seized in Syria and Iraq. It proclaimed al-Baghdadi the head of its new self-styled state and demanded that all Muslims pledge allegiance to him.Nigerians fleeing Islamist raids now total 3.3 millionABUJA, Nigeria (Bloomberg) Violence has forced about 3.3 million people to ee their homes in Nigeria, Africas biggest oil producer, according to the National Commission for Refugees. Nigeria has the worlds third-highest number of people displaced by conict after Syria and Colombia, according to the Geneva-based Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre. About 470,000 ran away from their towns and villages in 2013, it said in a report. Boko Haram has killed thousands of Nigerians, mainly poor villagers in the majority-Muslim north, since it took up arms against the government in Abuja, the capital, ve years ago. In April, it kidnapped more than 200 schoolgirls from the village of Chibok in Borno state. On June 30, the Nigerian military said it arrested a suspected Boko Haram cell leader who was involved in the abduction.Virus strikes hard in Haitis crowded shantytownsPORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) Within a dense cluster of imsy shacks made mostly of plastic tarp and wooden planks, a young mother cradles her sick, whimpering toddler while trying to guard against a erce tropical sun. Delimene Saint Lise says shes doing her best to comfort her 2-year-old daughter and control her spiking fever during what has quickly become a familiar agony in their makeshift community of shanties by a trash-clogged canal in the Haitian capital. This latest scourge in Haiti is chikungunya. Its a rarely fatal but intensely painful mosquito-borne virus that has spread rapidly through the Caribbean and parts of Latin America after local transmission rst started in tiny French St. Martin late last year, likely brought in by an infected air traveler. Haiti is proving to be particularly vulnerable because so many people live like Saint Lise and her neighbors, packed together in rickety housing with dismal sanitation and sur rounded by ideal breeding grounds for the mosquitoes that carry the illness. Since the virus was rst documented in Haiti in May, there have been nearly 40,000 suspected cases seen by health workers, the Pan American Health Organization says.

(Sun Sentinel) The manatees 47-year run as an endangered species may soon come to an end, as the federal government assesses whether the tubby marine mammal can look forward to a brighter future. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced a preliminary conclusion Tuesday that the manatees prospects have improved to the point where it may be warranted to reclassify the species from endangered to threatened. The announcement triggers a more detailed, yearlong scientic review that could culminate in stripping the manatee of the endangered status it has held since 1967. The change would have no immediate impact on boat slow-speed zones, dock-building limits or other rules that have made the seagrass-munching behemoths among the most controversial creatures in Florida. But some environmentalists and government ofcials say the loss of the endangered label could make it easier to challenge these measures. Chuck Underwood, spokesman for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, said the reclassication would result in no change in the manatees level of protection, including speed zones. Even if we would upgrade it from endangered to threatened, that speed zone is not going to go away, he said. The whole reason you could consider downlisting it is because you have adequate regulatory mechanisms in place to protect it. Reclassifying it to threatened doesnt take that away.Manatees may lose endangered status are permitted to display ags, but it must be done in accordance with specic condo rules. The ags must be in ag brackets and hung so they are even with the homes address plate. We have established rules that conform with the U.S. Code and Florida statutes regarding ag etiquette, and we encourage residents to y American ags in accordance with the state and national standards, the homeowners associations lawyers said in a statement. Strict enforcement of HOA rules is key to keeping communities looking nice and proper ty values high, said Frank Rathbun, spokesman for Community Associations Institute in Falls Church, Va., an industry trade association. We all respect this gentlemans service to our country, but good deeds should not enable somebody to break the established rules, Rathbun said. If you make one exception for a veteran with a ag, then youll have to do it for someone who wants to build a treehouse above the property line for their kids, or for someone with a strong desire to paint their house a different color. The tidily dressed, silver-haired Murphrees battle over the diminutive ag dates to 2012, when he led a federal lawsuit over the matter. That lawsuit argued that the association was violating his free speech rights and the 2005 Freedom to Display the American Flag Act, which prohibits homeowners associations from restricting ag ying. The two sides settled that suit, and Murphree said he made no money he just wanted to keep the ag in his ower pot. He thought the matter was settled until two weeks later, when the HOA drafted new ower pot rules that forbade his tiny ag from being own. The ne notices started appearing in his mailbox again. So Murphree led a second federal lawsuit earlier this year. That was dismissed in March by a U.S. District Court judge who said, among other things, that it was an issue for state courts. No state lawsuit has yet been led, and Murphrees attorney Gust Sarris said they are trying to settle the matter with The Tides out of court before ling.FLAGFROM PAGE 1 processing and distribution of the nal product take place at the same locations and allows for one dispensary in each of ve different regions of the state. Growers are limited to nurseries that have been doing business in Florida for at least 30 years and are producing at least 400,000 plants. Currently, 41 nurseries meet that criteria, according to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. If there is more than one applicant within a region, a public lottery will be held to determine the order in which applications are considered, according to the draft rule. The rst complete application that meets all of the eligibility requirements would be the winner. The chosen dispensary would have 30 days to pay $150,000 for a license and post a $5 million performance bond. If the applicant fails to meet the nancial obligations, the department would start the selection process over again. Applicants would have 10 days to apply once the rule goes into effect, a short window of time for those trying to break into the states newest regulated industry. Under the rule, dispensaries would have to be open a minimum of 30 hours per week and operate between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. And the rule would also bar sales of any edible products like cookies or candy. Applicants would also have to provide documentation that they have the ability to obtain the premises, resources and personnel necessary to operate as a dispensing organization, including maps showing the location of facilities; site plans drawn to scale of the cultivation, processing and dispensing areas; and photographs showing the parking lot and entryways into the building. Also, applicants would be required to include a list of staff members, who must all be over the age of 21, and prove that they have passed background screenings. The application must also include proof that individuals who are owners have passed background screenings. According to the proposed rule, the department could refuse to renew a license if a dispensary is within 500 feet of a school that existed before the organization submitted its initial application.POTFROM PAGE 1 and 28-year-old Ryan Witman of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The couple started driving at 3:30 a.m. Thursday on North Carolina Highway 12, the only road on and off Hatteras. We were just saying we were really, really lucky this year that the weather was so great, and then this, Specht said as she ended a twoweek vacation. Many island residents, meanwhile, decided to ride out the powerful storm rather than risk losing access to homes connected to the mainland by a highway prone to washouts. All the people that I know who live here are staying put, said Mike Rabe, who planned to stay in his Rodanthe home despite an evacuation order for surrounding Hatteras Island. The departures of vacationers left things pretty dead on Hatteras Island during the nor mally bustling run-up to the Independence Day weekend, Rabe said. He spent Thursday running errands and helping neighbors prepare their homes for the storm. Before the storm hit, tourism ofcials had expected 250,000 people to travel to the Outer Banks for the holiday weekend. Gov. Pat McCrory sought to strike a balance between a stern warning to vacationers and optimism that part of the busy weekend could be salvaged. Of course, this holiday weekend, the July 4th weekend, is one of the biggest weekends for coastal tourism in the state, and we anticipate a beautiful weekend after the Tropical Storm Arthur or the Hurricane Arthur is out of North Carolina, he said. Arthur, the rst named storm of the Atlantic season, prompted a hur ricane warning for much of the North Carolina coast. On the Outer Banks Ocracoke Island, accessible only by ferry, a voluntary evacuation was underway. Ofcials said ferry service would end at 5 p.m.THREATENSFROM PAGE 1ARTHUR PROMPTS NANTUCKET, CAPE COD STORM WARNINGSMIAMI (AP) Forecasters have issued tropical storm warnings for Nantucket Island and parts of Cape Cod in Massachusetts as Hurricane Arthur approaches. A forecast map from the National Hurricane Center in Miami indicates that the center of the storm isnt likely to pass New England until late Friday or early Saturday. Arthur grew to a Category 2 storm with winds of 100 mph Thursday evening. This has now become a textbook jobs expansion, said Patrick OKeefe, director of economic research at the consultancy CohnReznick. It is both broad and accelerating. At least one nagging doubt is dampening the enthusiasm: Can the stepped-up hiring lead to higher incomes? Wages have yet to outpace ination for most workers. Eventually, analysts say, the falling unemployment rate should cause pay to rise more sharply. But no one knows precisely when. The jobs report did make clear that, ve years after the recession ofcially ended, the U.S. economy is showing more vitality even as major economies in Europe and Asia continue to struggle. Last months solid hiring followed gains of 217,000 jobs in May and 304,000 in April, gures that were revised upward by a combined 29,000. Over the past 12 months, the economy has added nearly 2.5 million jobs an average of 208,000 a month, the fastest year-over-year pace since 2006. Economists say the steady U.S. hiring should fuel more purchases of goods from Asia and Europe and strengthen those economies at least slightly. Much of Europe is suffering from high unemployment. And China is trying to moderate its economys growth without slowing it too much. If we have some momentum going into the second half of the year, it helps the world economy because were big consumers, said Stuart Hoffman, chief economist at PNC Financial Services. The U.S. job gains in June were widespread. Factories added 16,000 workers, retailers 40,200. Financial and insurance rms increased their payrolls by 17,000. Restaurants and bars employed 32,800 more people. Only construction, which gained a mere 6,000, reected the slow recovery of previous years. Local governments added 18,000 education workers. But that might have been a quirk: Many schools that had been closed for snow days stayed open longer than usual in June, said Diane Swonk, chief economist at Mesirow Financial in Chicago. Over the past three months, job growth has averaged a healthy 272,000. And in May, the economy surpassed the jobs total from December 2007, when the Great Recession ofcially began.VITALITYFROM PAGE 1 LOS ANGELES (AP) Seventy years ago, the world was convinced that Louis Zamperini was dead. There had been no word of the track star and former Olympian since his World War II bomber crashed into the Pacic Ocean. The military told his parents he was dead, and an annual collegiate track competition named one of its races in his memory. But Zamperini was alive, and very much so. After surviving 47 days in a life raft in shark-infested waters and enduring two years as a Japanese prisoner of war, Zamperini was liberated in time to attend the second running of the invitational mile that had been named in his memory. It was a story tting for a man who lived a life on the edge of endurance, an ordinary man who did extraordinary things all while sustained by a hope and strength that at times seemed superhuman. Zamperini, a war hero, Olympian and the subject of a celebrated book and upcoming movie on his harrowing story of survival against all odds, died after a long battle with pneumonia, his family said Thursday in a statement. He was 97. Zamperini outlived almost all of those who watched him weave his way through his remarkable life, but the outpouring from those who came to know and love the man in his later years was as immediate and intense as the life he lived. Lauren Hillenbrand, the author of the best-selling book Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption, said over countless hours of inter views Zamperini became a surrogate grandfather and beloved friend who helped her cope with her own debilitating illness, chronic fatigue syndrome. In a life of almost unimaginable drama, he experienced supreme triumphs, but also brutal hardship, incomprehensible suffering, and the cruelty of his fellow man. But Louie greeted every challenge of his long journey with singular resilience, determination and ingenuity, with a ferocious will to survive and prevail, and with hope that knew no master, said Hillenbrand, whose book is being made into a movie directed by Angelina Jolie and is scheduled for a December release by Universal. His story is a lesson in the potential that lies within all of us to summon strength amid suffering, love in the face of cruelty, joy from sorrow. Jolie echoed those sentiments Thursday. It is a loss impossible to describe, she said in a statement. We are all so grateful for how enriched our lives are for having known him.

The Sun /Friday, July 4, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net Page 5 NATIONAL NEWS WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama is facing mounting calls from Republicans to take a rsthand look at the immigration emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border, putting him on the spot concerning what he has called the humanitarian crisis of tens of thousands of unaccompanied children ooding in from Central America. If he doesnt come to the border, I think its a real reection of his lack of concern of whats really going on there, declared Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a possible GOP presidential candidate in 2016. The White House said Thursday that Obama currently has no plans to visit the border when he travels to Texas next week, primarily to fundraise for Democratic congressional candidates. A trip to the border could result in awkward optics for the president, who would be unlikely to meet with youngsters hes seeking to deport and would risk upsetting immigration advocates who oppose the deportations if he were to meet with border patrol agents or other law enforcement. Administration ofcials say that Perry and other Republicans are merely trying to score political points rather than working to resolve a major problem. But the political concerns arent so easily dismissed for Obama. The border crisis has put him in the difcult position of asking Congress for more money and authority to send the children back home at the same time hes seeking ways to allow millions of other people already in the U.S. illegally to stay. The White House also wants to keep the focus of the debate in this midterm election year on Republican lawmakers whom the president has accused of blocking progress on a comprehensive overhaul of Americas immigration laws. Obama announced this week that, due to a lack of progress on Capitol Hill, he was moving forward to seek out ways to adjust U.S. immigration policy without congressional approval. Obamas options for that range from relatively modest changes in deportation procedures to broader moves that could shield millions of people in the U.S. illegally from deportation while giving them temporary authorization to work here. Immigration advocates emerged from a meeting with Obama this week convinced that the president was at least considering the more aggressive approach. Hes totally ipped from doing every thing possible to give Republicans the space to get to yes to doing every thing possible to cement the reputation of the GOP as anti-immigrant and to bolster the Democratic Partys image as the party thats for them, said Frank Sharry, executive director of Americas Voice, a leading advocacy group. The advocates are pushing Obama to provide work permits to the up to 9 million people who would have been eligible for citizenship under a comprehensive immigration bill passed by the Senate a year ago that stalled in the GOP-led House.Obama under pressure to visit border ORLANDO (AP) Since the release of a highly critical documentary last year, SeaWorld Entertainment has been condemned by animal rights activists distressed over the condition of its killer whales. But annual survival rates for some of the most common marine mammals including killer whales at SeaWorlds three parks are near the top of all U.S. parks and aquariums, an analysis of ve decades of federal data by The Associated Press showed. SeaWorlds survival rates for bottlenose dolphins and California sea lions actually exceed estimates for those in the wild. Breakthroughs in training and medicine that allow the parks medical staffs to perform far fewer stressful or invasive procedures are partly responsible for those successes, SeaWorld ofcials said. Decades ago, an evaluation of a marine mammal at a SeaWorld park might require a pool to be drained for an X-ray or the animal to be restrained. No longer. Through behavioral training, and bribes of herring and salmon, the marine mammals at SeaWorld parks have learned to give breath, urine and blood samples on cue. Dolphins are trained to keep their heads out of the water so endoscopes can be passed into the stomach for a look. An elaborate laboratory on SeaWorld grounds allows samples to be evaluated immediately. We do a lot of self-critiquing of who is doing what, how, said Todd Robeck, vice president of reproductive research at SeaWorld Entertainment, Inc., which is the largest holder of marine mammals in the United States. How are you handling food? How are you handling your moms and calves? What is the medical care? Killer whales born in captivity at SeaWorld parks have a survival rate nearly equal to their counterparts in the wild, according to APs analysis of data from the federal Marine Mammal Inventory Report. However, the survival rate of all SeaWorlds orcas, including those captured in the oceans, is lower than estimates of those living in the wild. While the survival rates have steadily improved over the past ve decades, they dont speak to the quality of life that whales, dolphins and sea lions have at SeaWorld parks. Critics say keeping intelligent marine mammals in captivity is inhumane and detrimental to their well-being. Last years documentary, Blacksh, explored what may have driven a killer whale named Tilikum to kill veteran SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau in 2010. The documentary argued that killer whales in captivity become more aggressive to humans and to each other. Several entertainers, including Willie Nelson, Heart and Trisha Yearwood, pulled out of planned SeaWorld performances, and opponents have been protesting regularly outside SeaWorlds Orlando park.Some SeaWorld mammals survive longer in captivityAP ANALYSISAP calculated survival rates for killer whales, bottlenose dolphins, California sea lions and beluga whales at more than 170 U.S. parks and aquariums. Animals younger than a year old werent included because of the difficulty of making comparisons in the wild at that age. Life expectancy averages were calculated from the survival rates. A small change in the survival rates can cause big changes in the average life expectancy estimates. So high and low average life expectancies were also calculated to capture the estimates possible age range within 95 percent accuracy. The analysis revealed: The average life expectancy for captive killer whales at all U.S. parks was more than 27years, the same as at SeaWorld, with a high estimate of 49years and a low estimate of 19years. When accounting only for orcas born in captivity and not captured, SeaWorlds killer whales had an average life expectancy of 46years. Populations of killer whales off British Columbia and Washington state that are often used as a benchmark for wild orca populations have an average life expectancy of around 49years. Captive bottlenose dolphins had an average life expectancy of almost 24years, with a high estimate of 26years and a low estimate of 22years. Those at SeaWorld had an average life expectancy of almost 45years. A population of bottlenose dolphins off the Sarasota coast often used as a benchmark in the wild has an average life expectancy of 25years. Captive California sea lions had an average life expectancy of 20years, with high and low estimates ranging from 21 to 19years. But those at SeaWorld had a life expectancy average of more than 32years. Estimates in the wild put average life expectancy at more than 17years. The average life expectancy for beluga whales was 19.5years in captivity, with the high and low estimates ranging from 29 to 15years. It was 24years at SeaWorld parks. Average life expectancy estimates in the wild ranged widely, from 11.5years to 62years, depending on the method of calculating age. WASHINGTON (AP) How strong is that pina colada? Depending on how its made, it could contain as much alcohol as two glasses of wine. The National Institutes of Health is trying to spread the word: Take a look at its online alcohol calculator to see how much youre really drinking with those summer cocktails. A standard drink is the amount of alcohol in a 12-ounce beer, 5 ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of distilled spirits. Its a useful way to track alcohol consumption. But the multiple ingredients of mixed drinks make for a harder count. Most people dont realize how much alcohol is actually in a drink, said Dr. George Koob, director of the NIHs National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Obviously it depends on the bartender and whos mixing the drinks, Koob adds. Recipes matter: The calculators pina colada example, for instance, assumes it contains 3 ounces of rum. Plan on using 2 ounces instead? The calculator adjusts to show its like 1.3 standard drinks. What about a margarita? The calculator concludes its the equivalent of 1.7 standard drinks, if made with 1.5 ounces of tequila, an ounce of orange liqueur and half an ounce of lime juice. A mojito? 1.3 standard drinks. A martini, extra dry? 1.4 standard drinks. Other favorites? Type them in: http:// rethinkingdrinking.niaaa. nih.gov/ToolsResources/ CocktailCalculator.asp. Beyond beverage choice, Koob, who specializes in the neurobiology of alcohol, has some tips:Summer heatHeat increases thirst but alcohol is a diuretic, Koob notes. So in addition to the usual advice to pace yourself no more than one standard drink an hour Koob says to stay hydrated by alternating some water or club soda with the alcohol.Gender differencesWomens bodies react differently to alcohol, and not just because they tend to weigh less than men. They dont metabolize alcohol as quickly, and their bodies contain less water. On average, it takes one less drink for a woman to become intoxicated than a man of the same weight, Koob said. The NIAAAs denition of low-risk drinking for women is no more than seven drinks a week and no more than three drinks on any single day, while for men the limit is no more than 14 drinks a week and no more than four drinks on any single day.Beyond drinking and drivingThe July 4 holiday weekend historically is dangerous on the highways: 38 percent o f fatalities involved alcohol-impaired driving in 2011, according to the National Highway Trafc Safety Administration. But alcohol also doesnt mix with boating, or swimming and diving, Koob warns. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, alcohol use is involved in up to 70 percent of adult and adolescent deaths associated with water recreation.Holding your alcoholWhat determines why one drink is plenty for one person while another routinely downs two or three? Genes play a big role. So do environmental factors, such as getting used to drinking a certain amount. That tolerance is a balancing act, Koob says. He cites research showing the person who can drink others under the table is at higher risk for alcohol problems later in life than is someone more sensitive to its effects.Calculator helps figure drink strength | NATIONAL NEWS BRIEFSUS seeks more security at some overseas airportsWASHINGTON (AP) U.S. intelligence ofcials are concerned that al-Qaida is trying to develop a new and improved bomb that could go undetected through airport security. There is no indication that such a bomb has been created or that theres a specic threat to the U.S., but the Obama administration on Wednesday called for tighter security measures at foreign airports that have direct ights to the U.S. American intelligence has picked up indications that bomb makers from Yemen-based al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula have traveled to Syria to link up with the al-Qaida afliate there, known as the Nusra Front, according to a counterterrorism ofcial who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter by name. The enhanced security measures have been in the works for the past month, he said.Drought wont stop fireworks in dry western statesALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) Arizonas largest city has gone four months without any measurable rain, and neighboring New Mexico is in the midst of four years of severe drought. But youll still see and hear reworks sparkle and pop during the days around July 4, despite the dangerously high threat of wildres. While some places in the West ban reworks altogether, or greatly limit what you can light off when conditions are ripe for re, other states are going in the opposite direction. Arizona actually loosened its restrictions this year and is now allowing residents of the two most populated cities to set off reworks in the days around Independence Day, and an effort by the New Mexico governor to impose tougher rules during dry times has repeatedly fallen on deaf ears in the Legislature. Some lawmakers chalk it up to statehouse politics, while others say its politicians reluctance to impose more regulations and take away the cherished tradition of setting off reworks, even in severe droughts.Idaho woman delivers baby while driving to doctorHEYBURN, Idaho (AP) An Idaho woman gave birth while driving to a doctor appointment and delivered her daughter by herself. Shawna Uriguen delivered the 6-pound, 7-ounce baby Tuesday while she was driving from work to a doctors appointment, the Times-News reported Thursday. She was on the phone with her ance, Clay Crown, and said she was trying to nd a place to pull over when the baby was born. She said she quickly got the baby out of her pant leg and checked to make sure she was OK. Uriguen, 29, said she had been having contractions but didnt think she was in labor. The baby, named Kimber Marie Crown, was due on Saturday. Uriguen said medics arrived in minutes, and she was taken to the hospital to get checked out. Uriguen said she and the baby are ne.Former Blackwater guard testifies against friendsWASHINGTON (AP) Former Blackwater security guard Matthew Murphy and now-indicted ex-colleague Paul Slough were friends, having survived the war in Iraq together, creating a bond that under different circumstances might have lasted a lifetime. But from the witness stand in the Blackwater criminal trial this week, Murphy testied that he saw Slough re at least two grenades into a car where a woman and her son died, two of 14 Iraqis killed on Sept. 16, 2007, in a downtown Baghdad square. In three days of testimony, Murphy became the rst Blackwater security guard to testify against his former associates in a trial expected to take months. Slough is charged with manslaughter, attempted manslaughter and violating gun laws, as are two other defendants, Dustin Heard and Evan Liberty. A fourth defendant, Nicholas Slatten, is charged with rst-degree murder in the death of the driver of the car. All four have pleaded not guilty.US laboratory admits violating nuke-waste permitALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) Los Alamos National Laboratory says it made mistakes in packing waste that has been linked to a radiation leak at the governments underground nuclear waste dump, but it remains unclear if the violations or its use of organic cat litter to absorb moisture played a role in the accident. In a letter released by state regulators Friday, lab ofcials told the New Mexico Environment Department that their internal probe of the handling of the toxic waste from decades of nuclear bomb building has uncovered several violations of its Hazardous Waste Facility Permit. The lab says it failed to follow proper procedures in making the switch from inorganic to organic litter and in its lack of follow up on waste that tests showed to be highly acidic. The shortcomings were described as unacceptable by Principal Associate Lab Director Terry Wallace, according to an internal memo.Official: Delaware should have closed bridge sooner(AP) Delaware ofcials should have closed a damaged interstate bridge sooner and missed opportunities by not having qualied personnel respond quickly to tips about the bridges deterioration, the states transportation secretary said Thursday. An internal report released Thursday documents a series of missteps leading up to the June 2 emergency closure of the Interstate 495 bridge in Wilmington. The report says Department of Transportation ofcials did not respond appropriately to two separate 911 calls, one in April and the other in May, suggesting something was wrong with the bridge. They also took several days to act after receiving an engineers warning in May that columns of the 495 bridge over the Christina River appeared to be tilting. There are three missed opportunities to have closed the bridge sooner, said transportation secretary Shailen Bhatt. We obviously should have reacted quicker.

Send it to us with Foolish Trivia on the top and youll be entered into a drawing for a nifty prize! environment, country of operations, etc. If two companies, no matter how wildly different, happen to have similar historical charts, a technical analyst will predict similar outcomes for each. That defies logic, dont you think? Think, too, of the worlds most famous successful investors, such as Ben Graham, Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, John Templeton, Shelby Davis, Philip Fisher, George Soros, David Dreman and John Neff. Despite their different approaches, each outperformed the overall market using fundamental analysis. Its hard to come up with a group of hugely successful investors known for using technical analysis. A 2008 study by New Zealands Massey University tested more than 5,000 technical analysis strategies in 49 different countries. The result? Not one added value beyond what may be expected by chance. A study of Dutch investors found technical investors earned lower returns. You can succeed with a bad strategy, but usually only in the short term and often due to luck. The evidence strongly suggests that buying stocks using technical analysis will lose you money. Large nest eggs can be built over many years using fundamental analysis or simply by investing in low-cost, broad-market index funds.Kicking Hertzs TiresIf you have a parking spot to fill in your long-term portfolio, consider Hertz Global Holdings (NYSE: HTZ). Accounting problems have pressured the stock and may potentially delay the spinoff of its equipment business, but theres a lot to like in Hertz. Hertz will be restating its past three years of financial reports. Thats not great news, but it could be worse. First off, the restatement is focusing on expenses, not aggressive revenue recognition policies or anything that suggests dramatic wrongdoing. Revenue growth, which is critical, will not change. With the car-rental industry consolidating in recent years, having fewer competitors can prop up prices and profit margins for Hertz. (Hertz has participated in the consolidation, buying Dollar Thrifty last year for $2.3 billion.) Of course, business landscapes change over time. It remains to be seen whether new ride-sharing businesses such as Uber and Lyft turn into threats for car-rental companies such as Hertz. Hertz plans to complete the spinoff of its equipment-rental business sometime next year. The move will give the company net proceeds of $2.5 billion, which will be used to pay down debt and reward shareholders via share buybacks (which reduce share count and thereby boost earnings per share). With a forward P/E ratio near 12, Hertz is worth a closer look. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Hertz.) The Motl ey Fool To Educate, Amuse & Enrich Misjudged AppleMy dumbest investment was not buying Apple. I considered doing so when the stock was at $93, but I thought that was too high. Tony, online The Fool Responds: Ouch. Youre probably painfully aware that Apple stock has recently been trading near $90 per share and thats after a 7-for-1 stock split. The split-adjusted price you were considering it at is about $13, so you missed a gain of almost 600 percent. If you werent confident in the companys future, though, you were right not to buy. Remember that any stocks price alone doesnt tell you much. A $400 stock can be a bargain, and a stock that has recently tripled might still keep growing. You need to consider how rapidly its revenue and earnings (and, ideally, profit margins) are growing, what its growth prospects are, and how attractive its price is relative to various measures such as earnings, via the price-to-earnings ratio. Apples stock might still seem pricey to some, but its P/E ratio was recently only near 15, and it offered a 2.1 percent dividend yield, too. (The Motley Fool owns and has recommended Apple shares.)Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Bad PenniesQSince penny stocks are so inexpensive, I can buy thousands of them, which can make me richer faster, no? H.E., Wilkes-Barre, PennsylvaniaASorry, no. Penny stocks might seem like bargains, but they wont necessarily grow faster than other stocks. A $1 stock and a $60 one can both go up (or down!) by the same percentage in one day. With a 5 percent increase, the $1 stock will rise in value by 5 cents, to $1.05. For the $60 stock, its a $3 jump, to $63. If the $60 stock is tied to a healthier company with competitive advantages, actual revenue and profits, and a lower valuation (perhaps as suggested by its price-to-earnings ratio), its likely a much better bargain than the $1 stock. Penny stocks (which trade for $5 or less per share) can be more likely to plummet than skyrocket. Theyre risky, and often hyped and manipulated. Pennystock investors are typically looking to get rich quick, but thats not how reliable wealth-building works. Focus on the long run plenty of big, successful blue-chip companies have made shareholders happy over many years. Penny stocks have made many unhappy. Its fun to own 5,000 shares of something, but not when they crash. ***QHow can I become a millionaire in my lifetime? P.J., Muskegon, MichiganAYou might want to start soon. You can earn a million dollars if you sock $5,000 per year into the stock market and earn its historic average annual return of roughly 10 percent over 31 years. Youll get there in 25 years if you invest $10,000 per year. No return is guaranteed in the stock market, but if you invest well and for a long time, you can build great wealth.Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us Technical or Fundamental?As you learn about investing in stocks, youll run across two key approaches: fundamental analysis and technical analysis. We at The Motley Fool have long favored the former. Fundamental analysts study companies and make investment decisions based on factors such as financial health, competitive advantages, management quality, growth prospects, profitability, price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios and macroeconomic factors. In contrast, technical analysts focus on charts reflecting companies stock price movements and trading volume, and make investment decisions based on patterns they see in them. Fundamental analysts explain that shares of a companys stock represent a piece of a business, and that investors are buying a piece of that companys future cash flow generation. Technical analysts believe that price patterns repeat themselves because we humans react similarly to similar market events so they seek certain patterns. Technical analysts ignore many determinants of a companys performance, including its regulatory 2014 THE MOTLEY FOOL/DIST.

Imports dipped slightly. The trade decit narrowed 5.6 percent in May to $44.4 billion after hitting a two-year high of $47 billion in April, the Commerce Department reported Thursday. Exports of goods and services rose 1 percent to a record $195.5 billion in May while imports fell a slight 0.3 percent to $239.8 billion. A lower trade decit boosts overall economic growth when it shows U.S. companies are earning more in their overseas sales. Economists are looking for a smaller trade decit in the April-June quarter which will mean less of a drag on overall growth than in the rst quarter, when the economy shrank at an annual rate of 2.9 percent.World food prices fall for 3rd monthPARIS (Bloomberg) World food prices fell for a third month in June as the cost of grains and vegetable oils slumped amid expectations for rising supply, the UNs Food & Agriculture Organization said. An index of 55 food items dropped 1.8 percent to 206 points from a restated 209.8 points in May, the Rome-based United Nations agency wrote in an online report Thursday. World food prices are down 2.8 percent from a year earlier. Corn futures fell 8.7 per cent last month in Chicago amid an outlook for record production in the U.S., the biggest grower. Wheat futures fell 7.9 percent as production in Europe is expected to climb. Last months decline, which was the third in succession, was largely the result of a marked drop in cereal and vegetable oil prices, following further improvements in global production prospects, the FAO wrote.Cattle at record signals higher beef costsCHICAGO (Bloomberg) Cattle futures extended a rally to a record as Americans are gearing up to pay the most ever for beef served at barbecues over the Fourth of July holiday weekend. Prices for wholesale beef jumped 23 percent this year, reaching an all-time high of $2.4813 a pound this week, and cattle prices have climbed 15 percent. Futures are rising after years of drought parched pastures in Texas, the top producer, forcing ranchers to shrink the U.S. herd to the smallest in 63 years. Reduced supplies drove retail prices for ground beef and and boneless-sirloin steak to records. Meat costs are increasing at a time when drought in California is making produce more expensive, and rising demand for U.S. dairy exports is also adding to grocery bills. NEW YORK (AP) The Dow Jones industrial average topped 17,000 for the rst time Thursday, the indexs rst big 1,000-point milestone this year, following news that hiring in the U.S. accelerated last month. The market rose from the start of trading after the government reported that U.S. employers hired more employees than investors and economists expected. Trading was extremely light, though, and the market closed early ahead of the Fourth of July holiday Friday. Thursdays gains add to what has been a strong month-and-a-half for Wall Street. Along with the Dow hitting 17,000, the Standard & Poors 500 index is approaching its own milestone of 2,000. The indexes have risen as a steady stream of good news on jobs and manufacturing bolsters investor condence. Right now the story is onward and upward, said Neil Massa, senior trader at John Hancock Asset Management. The Dow rose 92.02 points, or 0.5 percent, to 17,068.26. The S&P 500 rose 10.82 points, or 0.6 percent, to 1,985.44 and the Nasdaq composite rose 28.19 points, or 0.6 percent, to 4,485.93. Investors were encouraged by the latest jobs report from the Department of Labor, which showed U.S. employ ers added 288,000 workers to their payrolls in June, far more than forecast.

The child was taken to the hospital and under went surgery. Police say the infant is expected to make a full recovery.Sea turtle season off to slow start in NE FloridaST. AUGUSTINE (AP) Sea turtle season has gotten off to a slow start in northeast Florida, especially among green turtles. Wildlife ofcials say only 195 nests have been located so far this year, compared to 367 that were spotted by early July 2013. In addition, only two green turtle nests have been discovered this year, compared to 11 at the same time last year. In general, we seem to be having a down year, said Tara Dodson, an environmental supervisor for the St. Johns County Habitat Conservation Section. She says numerous factors could be affecting the countys 41 miles of coastline. We really dont know, she added. Some say the low numbers could be the result of an unseasonably chilly April. Summer weather did come late this year, Dodson said. We still might see the numbers jump again.Pinellas County has first mosquito virus caseST. PETERSBURG (AP) The rst case of the mosquito-borne chikungunya illness has been conrmed in Pinellas County. The states health department says a Pinellas County resident who traveled to the Caribbean in June came down with the viral illness. There have been 52 cases in Florida this year through Friday. The Tampa Tribune reports that none of the cases were acquired locally, and there have been no reports of any one acquiring the disease within the United States. The infection is typically reported in patients who had traveled to the Caribbean region. While the disease rarely leads to death, it can cause a week or more of fever, severe joint pain and rash. There is no vaccination or treatment.About 600 veterans honored by governor at 2 eventsJACKSONVILLE (AP) Nearly 600 more Florida veterans have received honors from Gov. Rick Scott.

They were playing in front of a standing-room-only crowd of 6,942, likely the biggest theyll see all season. Charlotte Sports Park was celebrating Independence Day early, and everyone in the building was waiting for the postgame reworks show. During the game, though, most of the reworks were provided by the St. Lucie Mets. Shortstop Gavin Cecchini drilled a sixth-inning grand slam off the ag pole over the left-eld boardwalk, propelling the Mets to a 7-4 win and the Stone Crabs to their 10th consecutive loss at home. Its tough to lose at home, but I think its just one of those things, manager Jared Sandberg said. This is where we should be winning ballgames. Thats for sure.

CRABS | 3Tigers trounce RaysBy MARC TOPKINTAMPA BAY TIMESDETROIT Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon started the day joking about a lineup that matched up with the 867-5309 phone number in the once-popular song Jenny by Tommy Tutone. But he wasnt laughing when the Rays had to call down to the bullpen to bail out starter Erik Bedard, who allowed three home runs in the first inning and lasted only two innings Thursday night in what ended up an 8-1 loss to the Tigers. The lopsided defeat halted the Rays seasonlong, five-game winning streak, part of a 14-of-21 run that created optimism their season of great expectation was not lost. Instead, it gave them their 50th loss before the Fourth of July and re-opened questions about how effective Bedard can be as a member of their rotation. Even more so because Jeremy Hellickson pitched better at Triple-A Durham on Thursday in what likely will be his last rehab start, as he works his way back from January elbow surgery. (If the Rays dont feel Hellickson is ready, they also could option him to the minors.) Bedard was coming off an impressive outing, working a season high seven-plus innings at Baltimore on Saturday, though throwing only 86 pitches. But he didnt have much Thursday, and it showed right away against the potent Tigers, as he allowed four runs on a pair of two-run MLB: Detroit 8, Tampa Bay 1 RAYS AT TIGERSWHO: Tampa Bay (38-50) at Detroit (48-34) WHEN: Today, 7:08 p.m. WHERE: Comerica Park, Detroit PROBABLE PITCHERS: Alex Cobb (3-6, 4.20) vs. Drew Smyly (4-7, 3.57) TV: Sun Sports, ESPN RADIO: 620 AM, 1220 AM, 1480 AM, 1530 AM, 1580 AMRAYS | 3Canada gets its 1st Slam finalistBy HOWARD FENDRICHASSOCIATED PRESSLONDON Eugenie Bouchard could have lost her focus after the fourth game of her Wimbledon semifinal Thursday, when play was delayed for five minutes during Simona Haleps medical timeout for a left ankle injury. Bouchard also could have gotten sidetracked when action was halted again, smack-dab in the middle of a tiebreaker, because an ill spectator was being attended to in the Centre Court stands. And everything really could have unraveled for Bouchard later, as she let match point after match point slip away. Able to steel herself time and again, the singular-of-pur pose Bouchard became Canadas first Grand Slam finalist by beating French Open runner-up Halep 7-6 (5), 6-2 at the All England Club. Im able to not worry about the distractions, the 20-year-old Bouchard said. What I do well is I really dont let it get to me or affect me. In only her sixth major tournament, the 13th-seeded Bouchard will play for the championship Saturday against 2011 Wimbledon winner Petra Kvitova. The sixthseeded Kvitova defeated No. 23 Lucie Safarova 7-6 (6), 6-1 in the first all-Czech womens Slam semifinal. I know how (it feels) when you hold the trophy, Kvitova said, so I really want to win my second title here, and I will do everything (so) I can.

A year later, his teammate wants to complete the feat. But for Dale Earnhardt Jr. to win the Coke Zero 400, he cant race the way he did at Talladega Superspeedway in May. The Daytona 500 winner went to Talladega thinking hed win another restrictor plate race, but instead nished 26th in a performance that still haunted him Thursday when he showed up at Daytona International Speedway. Its embarrassing man, I hate to talk about it, Earnhardt said before the rst of two practice sessions for Saturday nights race. The way we ran and what I chose to do at the end of the race was just uncharacteristic really of anybody that is in the eld trying to compete. I just got really frustrated with the way things were working out for us and lost sight of the overall big picture and what youre out there trying to do and who all is out there depending on you to do what you need to do. I learned some lessons.

When the racing resumed, Earnhardt was deter mined to win his second Daytona 500. Earnhardt led six times for a race-high 54 laps all after the rain delay and ended a 55-race losing streak that dated to 2012 with the win. But at Talladega, he wasnt at all the same racer. Earnhardt led 26 laps early and gambled hed have no trouble making it back through the trafc when he was shufed to the rear. When it became clear he had his work cut out for him, Earnhardt opted to take it easy and nurse his Chevrolet home for a clean nish. Fans were livid. I think I got real selsh at Talladega and what the result and how the result affected anyone I never took into account, he said. I really just was out there thinking more about me and what I thought and what I wanted to do and how frustrated I was. I forgot that theres a team behind me depending on me and a lot of fans there to see us race and show up to spend their hard earned money. Denitely was a difcult thing to go through. Earnhardt has eight wins at plate tracks four behind Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jeff Gordon for the active-driver lead and wants another win. Johnson, who goes into Saturday night with three wins in the last six races, believes his teammate has a shot at the sweep. Before Johnson did it last year, the last driver to sweep Daytona was Bobby Allison in 1982.JUNIORFROM PAGE 1 FORTALEZA, Brazil Colombia has been playing the exciting brand of football that Brazilians believe their own team should be playing at this World Cup. Theyve also been dancing after goals, bringing a spirit of fun to the pitch. Fullback Camilo Zuniga puts it down to coach Jose Pekermans philosophy of mixing amusement with responsibility. Zuniga, who will be a key gure in marking Brazil forward Neymar in todays quarternal match, said Pekerman helped us believe in ourselves. He drilled in our heads that we were good, Zuniga said. He drilled into our heads that a Colombian with the ball should have fun, that he shouldnt have to play with pressure, but that it comes with responsibility. Zuniga, who likes to attack down the anks, said that the dancing is in the Colombian blood. But he stressed that his rst duty as a defender will be to contain Neymar and help the team keep a clean sheet. Colombian goal celebrations have been choreographed dances, including salsa, with up to 10 players moving in lines together. And theres been plenty of them Colombias 11 goals in four games is second only to Netherlands in the tournament. James Rodriguez has scored a tournament-leading ve goals and has been one of the stars of the tournament. Neymar, the Brazilian forward who could rightly feel like hes carrying the weight of the host nation, has scored half of Brazils eight goals. When asked if the dancing after goals bothered him because hes an Argentine and may not be used to it, Pekerman said he wasnt bothered in the least. Its joyful, but sincere, he said, adding that he lived in Colombia for many years as a player and one of his daughters was born there. Its a way of the boys communicating in something that is a goal. They have this energy, I like it, but always with respect. Its something like a hug. It shouldnt bother anybody. World Cup fans, including Brazilians, have taken a liking to Colombias style of football and its dancing antics. But now Colombia will face Brazilian fans at Castelao Arena who will be booing them for the rst time at the tournament. This is going to be a new situation for us, Pekerman said. We have to deal with it. .. We hope to get quickly in the match to do what weve been doing so far.Colombias fun comes with dutyBy FRANK GRIFFITHSASSOCIATED PRESS SOCCER: World CupAP FILE PHOTOColombias James Rodriguez, center, dances with teammates in celebration after scoring during a group play match against Ivory Coast at the Estadio Nacional in Brasilia, Brazil.

The Sun /Friday, July 4, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 METS 7, STONE CRABS 4 HITTER OF THE GAME Gavin Cecchini, Mets: The shortstop only had one hit, but it was the biggest one of the night. His sixth-inning grand slam over the boardwalk in left field took a tie game and turned it into a four-run lead. PITCHER OF THE GAME Jordan Harrison, Stone Crabs: Making his season debut for Charlotte, Harrison came off the disabled list and gave up a run on three hits while striking out four. He missed nearly two months with left shoulder fatigue. KEY INNING Sixth: Charlotte reliever Zach Cooper gave up five runs; four on Cecchinis grand slam and another on DH Jeff McNeils RBI single. QUOTE OF THE DAY It was great to play in front of. It was great; everyone came out to support us, even though were not playing good baseball. They came out for a decent baseball game.

Right-hander Zach Cooper entered a tie game in the sixth inning, loaded the bases on two singles and a walk then gave up Cecchinis rst home run in a Mets uniform. Cooper started Charlottes current four-game losing streak when he gave up a three-run, walk-off home run against Jupiter on Monday. After giving up three home runs in the rst 58 games of his career, Cooper has given up one each in his last two outings. The balls been up, Cooper said. Ive gotten myself into some tough situations where fastballs have kind of been expected, and I havent executed. And the guys Ive faced have. The Mets ve-run sixth erased a solid High-A season debut for Jordan Harrison, who came off the disabled list prior to the game. The left-hander gave up a run on three hits while striking out four over ve innings. I was really pleased by not walking anybody, Harrison said. Thats the main key for me. The Mets took an early lead when Phillip Evans dunked in an RBI single behind the rst-base bag in the third inning, but Charlotte came back to tie it on Tyler Goeddels RBI single in the fourth. The Stone Crabs narrowed their decit after St. Lucie scored ve runs in the sixth, scoring a run in the sixth and two more in the seventh. They missed plenty of chances for more, though, leaving eight men on base while going 2 for 11 with runners in scoring position. Thats been one of the big things for us: Getting the big hit, said Goeddel, who went 2 for 3 with two RBIs. We denitely had a lot of opportunities to claw back into the game, but the ball just didnt nd a hole for us. The Stone Crabs will travel to Fort Myers to play three against the rst-half champion Miracle before they get their next chance to snap their home losing streak Tuesday against the Jupiter Hammerheads. When youre at home, you should be used to the stadium and playing your best ball. And we havent been doing that at all lately, Goeddel said.

Mazzilli applies the tag Thursday. home runs before getting his first out and five overall in the first. Austin Jackson singled on an 0-2 pitch, then Ian Kinsler crushed a 3-1 pitch for a home runs. Miguel Cabrera drew a full-count walk and then Victor Martinez, who wasnt a certainty for the lineup until batting practice due to a back strain, crushed another homer to left. After a fly out, veteran Torri Hunter added to the onslaught with a homer to center. It was the 18th time a Rays pitcher allowed three or more home runs in an inning, most recently last September by Matt Moore against Texas. But it was just the third time a Ray did so in the first inning, and for that Bedard joining some interesting company: Ryan Rupe did it at Anaheim on July 26, 2001, and Paul Abbott at Texas on May 3, 2004. Bedard lasted two innings, forcing the bullpen into overdrive. Cesar Ramos, who is expected to leave the team as soon as today anyway to attend the birth of his first child, worked 313, and rookie Kirby Yates the final 223 innings. The Rays actually took a 1-0 lead in the first against Max Scherzer when Desmond Jennings led off with a double, went to third on a Ben Zobrist fly out and scored on a sac fly by Evan Longoria. But that was pretty much it for their offense. The Rays have had trouble with the Tigers, losing 15 of their last 21. The five runs the Tigers scored in the first were more than the Rays had in any of their last 18 games with Detroit. Cobb battles mechanics: In trying to pitch better and more consistently overall since coming off the disabled list in late May after missing six weeks with an oblique strain, Alex Cobb feels he is making progress in what has been an ongoing battle to get his mechanics right. Cobb acknowledged that his strug gles may be the result of not putting in enough work on his mechanics before rejoining the rotation. It could be in part that maybe I didnt give enough respect to the fact that I was out for a month and Im working back into it, and maybe it does need to require a little but more attention on my part, he said, But Ive been feeling much better every outing and getting to the point where its more consistent. Cobb said his approach may have been impacted by the success he had in returning from a longer layoff last season, though that was after being struck in the head by a line drive and not an injury tied directly to his delivery.TIGERS 8, RAYS 1Tampa Bay AB R H BI BB SO Avg.

From 6-all in the tiebreaker, Kvitova won 31 of 48 points the rest of the way, using her overpowering serve and forehand that work so well on grass to improve to 6-0 against Safarova. In a year that zero American men or women reached Wimbledons round of 16 for the first time in 103 years, another Canadian, Milos Raonic, will try join Bouchard as a finalist. The mens semifinals Friday are old guard vs. new guard matchups: seven-time champion Roger Federer against Raonic, and top-seeded Novak Djokovic against Grigor Dimitrov. As of now, the 24-year-old Kvitova is the only man or woman born in the 1990s to win a Grand Slam title. If Bouchard becomes the second, she also would be the youngest major champion since Maria Sharapova was 19 at the 2006 U.S. Open. Its what Ive worked so long for, Bouchard said, without a hint of irony. Yes, Bouchard is clearly in a hurry and, by the looks of her muted post-victory reaction, didnt appear all that thrilled to get past the third-seeded Halep, who twisted her ankle in the early going and got it taped by a trainer. I feel like my job is not done here, Bouchard said, so theres no need for a huge celebration.CANADAFROM PAGE 1AP PHOTOEugenie Bouchard plays a return to Simona Halep during their seminal match Wednesday at Wimbledon in London. | TENNIS SCOREBOARDWimbledonAt The All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club, London Purse: $42.5 million (Grand Slam) Surface: Grass-Outdoor Singles Women Seminals Petra Kvitova (6), Czech Republic, def.

Fifty-seven days later, he nally stepped onto the mound for them. The left-hander came off the disabled list and pitched ve innings against the St. Lucie Mets, giving up a run on three hits while striking out four in a 7-4 loss. I felt good, Harrison said. My arm felt as good as it has this year. The Mets only run off Harrison came in the third inning, when designated hitter Jeff McNeil singled and scored on third baseman Phillip Evans bloop single that dropped in just fair over the rst-base bag. He was very effective, manager Jared Sandberg. Its one of those things where you go from the back elds to the stadium, and youre looking for that switch to turn on. The extra adrenaline and stuff like that. I thought he pitched very well. The swings that were taken were telling that he had good stuff. Harrison was called up to join Charlottes bullpen in early May after going 1-1 with a 3.30 ERA over six starts with Class-A Bowling Green, but left shoulder fatigue forced him to the disabled list four days later before he got a chance to appear in a game. He pitched seven scoreless innings over two rehab games with the Gulf Coast League Rays in late June before returning from the disabled list on Thursday. He took over the rotation spot vacated by righthander Albert Suarez, who was called up to Double-A Montgomery prior to Thursdays game. Hes here, hes healthy and hes ready to go. Hopefully he can help us, Sandberg said. Ive seen him pitch the last couple of years, hes helped my ball clubs the last couple of years. I know hes a guy who goes out there and it a erce competitor. Suarez up: Harrison took the roster spot and rotation spot of Suarez, who was called up to Double-A Montgomery on Thursday. Suarez made three starts for the Stone Crabs, going 1-0 with a 0.64 ERA and 10 strikeouts over 14 innings. The right-hander missed 14 months after undergoing shoulder surgery early last season. I know the organization is extremely happy for Albert, the way hes come back, Sandberg said. Its been a long road for him from a recovery standpoint. Hes gone through a lot in his career, so for him to get healthy again, get the strength back and go out there and be able to compete on the mound, I think it a huge bonus. He deserves that promotion. Big night at the park: The Stone Crabs celebrated Independence Day on June 3. And plenty of people came out to celebrate it with them. Thursdays game drew a crowd of 6,942 to Charlotte Sports Park, nearly doubling the previous season-high of 3,681. Fans enjoyed a dunk tank, a bounce house, carnival games, a wing-eating contest and a postgame fireworks show. Stone Crabs pitchers Reinaldo Lopez and Jose Alberto Molina took part in the wing-eating contest, each winning a trophy as they beat two coaches from North Port High School, 40 wings to 34 wings.

MINNEAPOLIS CC Sabathias return to the New York Yankees rotation is being delayed because he had swelling in his injured right knee after making his second rehabilitation start. Sabathia made a start for Double-A Trenton on Wednesday. He had an MRI on Thursday. The left-hander has been out with a degenerative cartilage problem nearly two months. Also, the Yankees have sent third baseman Yangervis Solarte to Triple-A Scranton/WilkesBarre and replaced him with Zelous Wheeler, who made his major league debut. Wheelers contract was selected Thursday from the clubs top minor league team. He started at third base and batted eighth in the Yankees game in Minnesota. The 27-year-old Wheeler was drafted by Milwaukee and also spent a two-year stint in Baltimores system. He was in his eighth minor league season. As finalize stadium agreement: The Oakland Athletics finalized an agreement on a 10-year extension to play at the Coliseum through the 2024 season. The deal was approved by the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority. The deal still needs to be formally approved by the Oakland City Council and Alameda County Board of Supervisors later this month. The deal settles all outstanding issues between the two sides, including a dispute of past rent owed by the As. The As will spend more than $10 million on a new scoreboard and the Coliseum Authority will pay for any structural improvements that will be in place by opening day 2015. The rundown Coliseum has had multiple sewage problems in the past year and an outage affecting the outfield lights on June 14. Rockies activate Arenado: The Colorado Rockies activated third baseman Nolan Arenado from the 15-day disabled list and optioned left-hander Christian Friedrich to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Arenado won a Gold Glove last year as a rookie. Hes hitting .305 and the Rockies were 10-27 without him in the lineup. Aceves handed drug suspension: New York Yankees minor league pitcher Alfredo Aceves has received a 50-game suspension after a second positive test for a drug of abuse. The suspension of Aceves, who is on the roster of the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, is effective immediately.Yanks Sabathia suffers setback MLB NOTEBOOKNew York demotes third baseman SolarteBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MLB ROUNDUPPhillies bats wake up for late winMIAMI Ben Revere scored the go-ahead run when Miami second baseman Donovan Solano bobbled a grounder in the ninth, and the Philadelphia Phillies rallied past the Marlins 5-4 Thursday night to snap a six-game losing streak. Tony Gwynn Jr. led off the ninth with a walk and eventually scored the tying run against Miami closer Steve Cishek (4-4). Revere scored easily when Chase Utley hit a grounder and Solano could only get the out at rst. Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon got his 19th save in 21 chances. Jake Diekman (3-2) got the win despite a shaky eighth, giving up two runs and costing Philadelphia the lead. Revere had two hits for the Phillies, who won for the third time in 13 games. Marcell Ozuna had three hits and scored twice for Miami, and Christian Yelich also had a two-hit night for the Marlins. Casey McGehee extended his hit streak to 10 for Miami, reaching base for the 27th straight game. It went back-and-forth all night: The Marlins led 2-0, the Phillies went up 3-2 and the Marlins answered with two in the eighth for a 4-3 lead on Jeff Bakers pinch-hit triple. But Cishek blew a save chance for just the second time all season, and the Phillies avoided a sweep.

Anthony was in Los Angeles to meet with the Lakers, who are among the teams hoping to convince the All-Star forward to leave New York. Anthony already visited Chicago, Houston and Dallas this week. The Knicks can offer him the largest contract, nearly $130 million over ve years, though Jackson has said he hopes Anthony will take less than a maximum deal. Other teams can offer Anthony slightly less than $100 million in a four-year deal, according to NBA rules. Team President Phil Jackson and general manager Steve Mills were expected to be part of the meeting but not Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because details of the meeting were to remain private. Contracts cant be signed until July 10, so Anthony is under no rush to make a decision. But the Knicks apparently wanted to make sure they got to make a nal pitch after his cross-country free agency. Mavs, Nowitzki agree on deal: Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks agreed on what could be the final contract for the big German. A person with knowledge of the deal said that Nowitzki would get a three-year contract worth roughly $30 million. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced. New contracts cant be signed until next Thursday. The 36-year-old Nowitzki is taking a big pay cut with a contract similar in value and structure to the one Tim Duncan signed with San Antonio two years ago. Kings, Collison reach deal: The Sacramento Kings got some much-needed depth at point guard and a possible backup plan if they lose starter Isaiah Thomas in free agency. The Kings and Darren Collison agreed to a three-year contract worth about $16 million, a person familiar with the deal said. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because teams cant officially sign free agents until the NBAs moratorium on moves is lifted July 10. Around the league: Shortly before the start of a trial to determine whether Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is mentally incapacitated, his lawyers have filed a motion to move the case to federal court, alleging his medical privacy has been violated. A probate court trial is scheduled for Monday to determine whether the 80-year-old Sterling should be declared incapacitated so estranged wife Shelly Sterling can sell the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for $2 billion. But on Thursday, Donald Sterlings attorneys filed a notice of removal to federal court, saying the airing of his medical information in the probate case violates federal privacy laws. ... A person with knowledge of the details said San Antonio Spurs guard Patty Mills had surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder. NBA NOTEBOOKAP FILE PHOTOThe New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony drives against Minnesota during a game last season in Minneapolis. A person with knowl edge of the plans said the Knicks planned to meet with Anthony on Thursday in Los Angeles. Anthony was in Los Angeles to meet with the Lakers.KNICKS FOLLOW MELO TO L.A.Nowitzki, Mavericks agree on deal BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS | QUICK HITSDOLPHINS JORDAN SUSPENDED BY NFLDAVIE Dion Jordan of the Miami Dolphins was suspended for the rst four games of the season after testing positive for a stimulant prohibited under the NFLs policy on use of performance-enhancing substances. The Dolphins announced the suspension Thursday. In a statement released by the team, Jordan took full responsibility for the positive test. Jordans statement included an apology for the impact of this situation on his teammates, coaches, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, his fans and family. We were disappointed to learn about Dions suspension, Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said through the team. Dion has accepted responsibility for his actions and is committed to improving, both on and off the eld, in preparation for the upcoming year. Jordan was the third overall pick in the 2013 draft out of Oregon. He said he added more than 15 pounds of bulk this offseason in an effort to improve his game, earning praise from Philbin for being able to play faster as well. ... Seven retired NFL players are objecting to a proposed settlement of concussion claims, calling it a lousy deal for ex-players whose symptoms dont qualify them for compensation. The players lawyers filed a motion in federal court in Philadelphia on Wednesday urging a judge to reject the settlement between the NFL and as many as 20,000 retired players. The settlement provides up to $5 million each for retired players who develop Lou Gehrigs disease, dementia or other neurological problems believed to be caused by concussions suffered during their pro careers.COLLEGE FOOTBALLAlabama towns to honor Winston: In Hueytown, Ala., Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston will be honored at an event at the field where he starred in high school. Hueytown Chamber of Commerce director Rebecca Williams said that the reigning Heisman Trophy winner is expected to attend Saturday nights ceremony. It will be held at Hueytown High Schools former field, GilmoreVines Stadium. ... Oklahoma added Dorial GreenBeckham, the standout receiver who was dismissed by Missouri in April. Coach Bob Stoops announced that Green-Beckham was added to the Sooners roster after signing a financial aid agreement Wednesday. He can immediately enroll in classes and begin team activities. He would be eligible to play beginning in 2015.JUDICIARYProsecutor says Pistorius acted methodically: In Pretoria, South Africa, Oscar Pistorius armed himself and took other methodical steps before he killed his girlfriend, the chief prosecutor said, trying to cast doubt on the athletes account that he reacted instinctively to a perceived intruder. Prosecutor Gerrie Nel made the argument while cross-examining sports physician Wayne Derman, who testified that the Paralympian acted on a fight or flight impulse in which he chose to confront what he thought was an attacker because his disability prevented him from fleeing. Derman has treated Pistorius for years. Pistorius, 27, said he killed Steenkamp by mistake, thinking there was a dangerous intruder in his home. ... In Los Angeles, Jurors resumed deliberations after a judge told them to keep talking when they said they couldnt reach a verdict in the negligence lawsuit filed by a San Francisco Giants fan who suffered severe brain damage in a beating at Dodger Stadium. The 12-member Los Angeles County Superior Court panel deliberated for nearly a week before telling Judge Victor E. Chavez Wednesday that it was unable to reach a consensus of at least nine jurors on the question of whether there was negligence by the Dodgers or former owner Frank McCourt. ... In Washington, a national organiza tion representing college and university presidents disputed a federal ruling that students who receive college athletic scholarships are essentially employees of their schools and thus entitled to join unions and exercise collective-bar gaining rights. But labor organizations took the other side of the issue. Student-athletes participate for their own benefit; they do not render services for compensation, said the 1,800 member American Council on Education. They are not employees and therefore not subject to the National Labor Relations Act. Ahead of a midnight deadline, the council filed a 30-page friend-of-the court brief taking strong issue with the ruling earlier this year by a National Labor Relations Board regional director that allows college athletes at Northwestern University to unionize. The full labor board is weighing the case. ... The death of a referee who was punched at a Detroit-area soccer match has been ruled a homicide, according to an autopsy conducted Thursday. John Bieniewicz died of blunt force trauma to the neck, said Mary Mazur, a spokeswoman for the Wayne County medical examiners office. Bieniewicz, 44, died Tuesday, two days after Livonia police say he was attacked during an adult-league game. Associated Press taY"yJ Yd.ry;

Lots of Tots Learning Center at 4021 Gardner Drive, Port Charlotte, just might be one of Port Charlottes most creative and innovative childcare centers. Its all due to the vision of director Stacey Toma and her staff. The goal of Lots of Tots is to provide a safe and creative learning environment, and just like the children who have been in their care, the center has never stopped growing. Toma has been the director of Lots of Tots for the past seven years. She spent most of her life in the eld of early childhood development and she enjoys working with that age group. The creative aspect of her job is what appeals to her most, and she strives to always keep things fun and interesting for the children. I like keeping things fresh and new for the kids. They appreciate it, continued Toma. They notice everything. Prior to being the director of Lots of Tots, Toma gained experience in counseling as well as working with physically disabled children and children with Lots of TotsBy NATALIE SHARBAUGHHERALD CORRESPONDENTHERALD PHOTO BY NATALIE SHARBAUGHFrom left, Jayden Karalfa, Alli Wilkie and Joseph Roye gather around the campre in the outdoor classroom at Lots of Tots Learning Center.Daycare teaches creative way to a bright future Nicole NolesEDITORS CORNERnnoles@sun-herald.com Our Fourth of July holiday is usually a day of picnics and patriotism. What I think gets lost these days is the fact that our founding fathers were rebels. They believed everyone had an equal right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and they fought to secure that right for themselves and their fellow colonists. As we celebrate, please reect on the sacrices of not only our founding fathers of yesterday, but our soldiers of today. They are the reason we have something to celebrate every July 4. Our struggles for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness look much different today, but our founding fathers deliberately designed a system of government that allowed freedom for everyone, not just the popular majority. Lets keep that spirit alive by continuing to be involved in civic activities and make sure we have something to celebrate every year.Happy Fourth of July to our Herald readers Knights of Columbus receives three awardsAnimal Welfare League sponsors photo contest The Animal Welfare League has started a photo contest fundraiser for pet oxygen masks for Charlotte County Fire & EMS trucks.

This award recognizes Fawcett among the top 5 percent of more than 4,500 hospitals nationwide for clinical performance and is the only hospital in Charlotte County to receive this distinction. Hospitals receiving the Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence demonstrated better than average quality care for patients undergoing treatment for up to 30 common conditions and procedures at these hospitals. This translates to a statistically significant lower likelihood of morbidity or complications when compared to other hospitals. Fawcett is one of only 260 hospitals across the U.S. to receive the Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence, and it adds another honor to a growing list of recognitions Fawcett has received for excellence in clinical care and safety. Earlier this year, Fawcett received an A grade for hospital safety from the Leapfrog Group, which rates how well hospitals protect patients from accidents, errors, injuries and infections. The hospital has also received Best Hospital & ER by the Charlotte Sun and Best Hospital by Florida Weekly for several years now. Today, consumers have unprecedented access to information on hospital performance as it relates to specific conditions and procedures so that they can make more informed decisions about who to see and where to go for care, said Evan Marks, Healthgrades executive vice president for informatics and strategy. The Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence enables hospitals to communicate their commitment to providing outstanding patient care and to show their continued efforts to improve clinical outcomes. | COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEF 941-766-1001 17912 Toledo Blade Blvd. Port Charlotte, FL Board Certified in Internal Medicine Fellowship in Geriatric Medicine Experience Better Healthcare M ARIO E.

Herald Page 10 Friday, July 4, 2014 Aspergers. She was also the director at another childcare facility. Toma has been in the eld long enough to know that change is inevitable. You cannot stay the same. Things are constantly evolving, said Toma. Were always updating and trying to incorporate new ideas. Were always improving. Inside Lots of Tots, the facility is partitioned into several classrooms that are set up for numerous activities. Each classroom contains learning centers that focus on various categories such as math and science, literacy, motor skills, sensory skills, dramatic play as well as arts and crafts. Each center is like a hands-on laboratory where children get to explore and learn. In the family learning center, children can play with various articles of clothing and learn to dress themselves. A water table and sand table full of toys and other items are available for children to develop sensory skills. The block and small manipulatives center will help children develop their motor skills. These, and many more centers help children learn valuable skills in a fun environment. Lots of Tots also has a Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) class. The VPK class will help children gain the necessary skills to prepare them for kindergarten. Lots of Tots still has a few openings remaining for their VPK class, which will begin on Aug. 11. While other childcare centers may offer a similar curriculum, Lots of Tots Learning Center has something that makes them unique an outdoor classroom. All of the lessons and skills that can be learned and developed indoors have been incorporated into activities that take place in various centers outdoors. The main theme of the outdoor classroom is gardening. Pots and planters hold vegetables, herbs, spices and more. Corn, lettuce, spinach, strawberries, cucumbers, eggplant, squash, peppers, mint, sage and cherry tomatoes are just some of the crops that can be found. The children help care for these plants and will be able to take some home to their families once the plants are fully grown. There is a greenhouse onsite where children are able to do some gardening or simply pretend to be bugs and butteries while learning about them. A gazebo houses a restaurant where children can take turns being patrons, the cook or the wait staff. It also plays host to the Green Thumbs Club, of which all children are members. A meditation center, complete with lounge chairs, is a great place for kids to read and relax. The Country Kitchen Jamboree is an outdoor musical center where rhythms and melodies can be played on pots and pans with wooden spoons. The campre center allows the children to dress up as cowboys or cowgirls and bring their horses to a campre cookout. The classroom also has plenty of space for dancing, climbing and more. The outdoor classroom was constructed from many recycled items that were donated to the center. Sneakers, pots and pans, a bicycle and more serve as planters for the garden. Many of the stools and tables were made from a tree that a neighbor needed to cut down. Toma credits her husband, Paul, with helping to make the Outdoor Classroom a reality. He has been instrumental in its construction, and he continues to offer support with maintenance, new projects and remodeling. Future improvements to the outdoor classroom will include the addition of birdhouses and buttery houses. Toma also hopes to incorporate a hydroponic garden area. Children will be able to experiment and see the differences in vegetables that are grown hydroponically versus those grown in traditional soil. For the children at Lots of Tots, the possibilities for creativity are endless. This is due in part to an enthusiastic and creative staff. Each teacher at Lots of Tots has anywhere between 15 and 25 years of experience. Londa Wik has been in the eld of childcare for nearly 22 years. She began her career by working for Toma at her previous childcare center. Today, she continues to do what she loves at Lots of Tots and is proud to be working with people who she loves as well. I like being creative and I love working with children, said Wik. I love the people who I work with we have a great camaraderie. Were like a family. Toma is grateful for her qualied and consistent staff. She believes that their experience and compassion helps to keep everyone focused on their vision. My staff are visionaries too. They think creatively, especially when dealing with behavioral problems and other situations, explained Toma. My staff has stayed with me, theyre extremely loyal. My staff are my friends. Because Lots of Tots is small in comparison to larger centers and preschools, Toma is pleased with the relationships that are created. Were all very close with the kids. We get to know them better and we get to know the parents better, added Toma. Its more personal here. Misty Hoover takes her daughter to Lots of Tots Learning Center. She is thankful for all that the caring staff provides. My daughter does not have any local family here and she feels that the staff are her family, explained Hoover. This is a high quality center. Toma encourages any parent inter ested in registering their 2to 5-year old children to contact the center. She will be happy to answer any questions and give them a tour of her facility. Toma and her staff are passionate about helping children reach their full potential. The future leaders of tomor row need to get their start somewhere, and some of them might be sitting around a campre with their horses at this very moment. Its important to help with the social and emotional development of kids these days, said Toma. To get them ready for kindergarten so that theyll do well in life thats exciting to me. Lots of Tots Learning Center accepts children ages 2 through 5. The center is open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

In 1948, my mother, sisters and I were living in Seattle,Wash., as our father, Colonel Raymond Henry My ers, had been transferred to Fairbanks, Ala., under General Nathan Twining. General Twining had in 1947, been assigned to take over the Alaskan Air Command and dad was sent to investigate wasteful military spending. My mother, Grace, developed breast cancer while in Seattle, and dad thought Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D.C., would provide the best care. Mom died in 1953, at Walter Reed undergoing what they called new atomic treatments. I was 11; my little sister, Martha, was 9. The Army at that time did not take taxes out of monthly checks and Dad owed $10,000 to the IRS. Martha and I were sent to a boarding home in rural Miami until dad got everything paid off. Clara Ma Ewart ran the large, two-story, ve bedroom boarding home in Miami situated on ve acres of uncared for orange trees, strawberries and woods. We girls explored every foot of that ve acres. Ma Ewart had a blind son, 6-year-old Mike, and also took in blind and deaf children, along with an occasional foster child pulled from an abusive household. Looking at Mike, you would never know this kid was blind! He had such intelligent eyes and was constantly questioning everyone. Ma had enrolled him in a school for the blind where he was learning Braille, and doing extremely well. Three-years-old and also blind, little Maggie was the rst to join the family. Her parents were Princeton professors with limited knowledge of caring for Maggie, assuming that blind also meant dumb. Remember Helen Keller? Blind, deaf and assumed dumb. Fooled them, didnt she? Maggie had brown curly hair with laughing intelligent eyes. Just like Mike, her quest for knowledge, even at 3, was astounding. She brought such joy into our lives. The next child to join the family was 5-year-old, blonde and blue-eyed Louise. We called her Tweetie-Bird. Tweetie-Bird was blind and deaf. Her parents had left her in the crib for those ve years, not knowing what to do with her and ashamed of having such a child. She was malnourished, severely underweight and in diapers. She had never been out of her crib. Tweetie-Birds teeth were rotted from lack of care and improper feeding; her daily diet consisted of sweet baby foods from jars. My gosh, how we loved that child! Hugs, kisses, good nutrition and love got this little uncared for child laughing, happy and nally sitting up in a high chair. After several years under Ma Ewarts loving care, the parents decided that they could handle Tweetie-Bird and took her home. I never heard from her again. Ma Ewart was your typical no-nonsense grandma, dressed in no-nonsense clothes and brown sturdy shoes. When you saw her coming, you knew that you were dealing with a special lady who took no sass from merchants, bankers or mouthy kids. I loved her to death. She exemplied the type of woman that I had hoped to be, and have tried to be, although not always succeeding.

With almost as many females as males in attendance, El Jobean resident Patty Steinmetzs shirt said it all. HERALD PHOTOS BY BETSY WILLIAMSFour-year-old Samuel Hoover loved watching the trucks and tractors, but was not fond of the noise. The smoke, the noise and the sheer excitement of the crowd made for a successful pull at the fairgrounds. RIGHT: The smoke, the noise and getting a close up Jack Marcus, 3, could not take his eyes o the trucks he watched with his dad, Mike Marcus. Only her second run, Jennifer Green had a full pull going the distance of the course. Lisa and Bill Ranaldi, along with their 14-year-old son Billy, were among the pull enthusiasts who attended the event. Jessie Dekle, Wayne Godwin, Darian Combs and Alex Roberts watched the pull from inside the tractor eld.

Its essentially a bucket-list guide to the great state of Florida, including such no-brainers as snorkeling the beautiful coral reefs in the Keys and watching the sun rise on the east coast on the same day you watch it set over the Gulf of Mexico. Some are practical and hard to avoid for lifers of the Sunshine State, like sur viving a hurricane, eating conch fritters and paying a visit to St. Augustine. Others require a bit more ambition touching an alligator, for example. But after moving to Charlotte County, I found out fairly quickly that quite possibly one of the best bucket-listers of our great state was left out of this guide book Punta Gordas Freedom Swim. There is no denying our city does things a bit differently than the rest. I mean, lets think about it. Only in Charlotte County do people celebrate Independence Day by jumping into the tannin-tinted waters of Charlotte Harbor so they can swim from Port Charlotte to the tip of Fishermens Village in Punta Gorda. Its a wacky, homegrown tradition that hits the 23-year mark today. The swim, a true spectacle of patriotic proportions, starts at 9 a.m. as hundreds of people begin their trek across the harbor, armed with whatever they think they need to make it to the other side. For some, its kickboards, noodles and a nearby kayak, offering physical and emotional support for the estimated 1.5-mile swim. For others, its an American ag bathing suit, oating cooler of cold beer and contraptions engineered to look as though a bicycle had been fused (or duct taped) to a paddleboard. Its a to-each-their-own kind of event, and one I am very proud to have crossed off my to-do list. In 2012, after a month of training, I decked myself out in a red, white and blue bikini and set out for the swim alongside Lorraine SchneebergerAnderson, the editor of the North Port Sun and old newspaper pal Jason Elek, who is now a professor at Florida Gulf Coast University. Both were veteran Freedom Swimmers, and I felt like I was in really good hands as they mapped out our swim course hug the bridge and let the current push us across. We werent racing, but we werent coast ing either. Their plan sounded great to me. Considering the two thunderstorms that hit while we were in the water, one of which blinded us to the point we ended up swimming the wrong direction for longer than I care to admit, we nished with a decent enough time, rounding out our swim in the middle of the pack. What stands out the most to me was the camaraderie of the day. Swimmers checking up on each other, people cheer ing us on from boats and all the highves and hugs we got from complete strangers upon climbing up the ladder on Harpoons dock. Of course, the free beer from proud friends didnt hurt, either. Although I have absolutely no desire to swim the harbor ever again, I make a point of showing support to the hundreds who suit up for the swim each year. Its an event not to be missed this Fourth of July, especially since its a bucket list item the whole community swimmers and spectators alike can equally enjoy.Cross the Freedom Swim off your bucket list Pamela Staik PGH EditorPamela Staik is the editor of the Punta Gorda Herald.

For information on the main events, visit www.shville.com and www. puntagordareworks.com. Whatever your plans are today, have fun, party hard, but play safe.

Each candidate will have their own separate table and will be available to approach individually. To reserve a spot a this event, call Tyler Van Mater at 941-639-3720.Commemorating 10 years of progress since stormAs mentioned in this column last week, 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 the chamber ofce. 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 10 years. Plan to be a part of the celebration, and mark your calendars to come along and join the party.Be safe, have fun this July Fourth CONTACT THE CHAMBERFor more information about events listed in this column, contact the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce at 941-639-3720 or visit its website at www.puntagordachamber.com.

Herald Page 4 Friday, July 4, 2014 River City Grill owner Doug Amaral is about to double down on his belief that Punta Gorda diners care where their food comes from. Since nearly dying from a cerebral hemor rhage a year and a half ago, hes become a believer in organic and natural foods and has successfully introduced them into the menu at his popular and trendy downtown restaurant. They also are about to be featured on the menu of a new Italian restaurant he plans to open this fall. Because of my health, its (natural and organic food) become a passion of mine, he said. Im taking them into my business life and making that kind of food available to the community. I want to lead the train; I really do. Im really breathing it. The more I read and learn, the more knowledge I get, the more I want to make it available and be a part of my business. Hes also a big believer in buying as many of these products as possible locally. These include foods like Onion River Ranch grass-fed red angus beef, grass-fed bison from Three Suns Ranch and certied organic veggies from Worden Farm and Aloe Organics. Hes also offering a good selection of organic spirits and wines to accompany the locally produced items. Hes in discussions with other growers and ranchers and is grateful for those dedicated people sweating in the Florida sun to push the organic food movement forward. Its all about the farmers, those hard-working guys out there, he said. Im marrying up with all these local ranchers and farmers and building relationships with them. I can go right down the street and see where Im getting my food from. Its going to add to my brand for people who care where their food comes from. For example, if you eat something with sausage at River City, it almost certainly was made just across the river in Port Charlotte. He said, Its from B&G, an Italian place up in Port Charlotte at 3805 Tamiami Trail. A local sausage maker, Sam, an Italian guy from New York, makes it for us. Amaral likes to give his suppliers their due, especially when it comes to River Citys menu. Organic foods are so available now, and there are so many other farms, he said. Im reaching out to a few in Fort Myers and Buckingham (east of Fort Myers). I really am marrying up with our farms; they will be all over the menu. I wont sell their food without it being on the menu. Diners who want great food and care about its origins will soon have another trendy downtown eatery to patronize, and it wont be far from River City Grill. In fact, you will only have to walk through an opening in the east wall of River City to enter Amarals new Italia restaurant on the other side of the old building he owns. This year, during his annual summer trip to his small Massachusetts hometown, he will be working on plans for Italia, expected to open in November, instead of resting up for another season. He said, Im going up to my cottage in Massachusetts to work on recipes, work on the menu and nd a chef. I have been joking around about taking it easy and chilling out, but Im really going up there to get into organization mode to add to my restaurant brand. Im taking a 5-inch stack of recipes with me. The new Italia will bear many similarities to River City, especially in its ambience, which also will make use of the bricks, wood beams and ductwork of the stately old building. It will have the same look as River City, Amaral said. The front will look like an old Tuscan barn, the back sleek and contemporary. It will be our Italian sister over there. The whole premise is old meets new classic Italian food meets contemporary Italian food. He continued, In the front, the beams, the reclaimed wood, ductwork and Italian tapestries will have the old look. The back will be sleek, Armani and Ferrari, with a contemporary bar just like in River City. The Italian dishes hes working on promise to have that same organic option now available in River City. Our main focus is going to be fresh, simple, clean Italian food with organic dishes and organic sauces like Bolognese sauce, he said. Were not going full-blown organic; were just adding a percentage so people who care can have it available. Organic tomato sauce or not pick the one you want. Amaral is a businessman, not a wild-eyed zealot, but he cant hide his enthusiasm for the healthier food options he is serving up after experiencing their impact on his own life. I feel great, and Im passionate about my life again, he said. I cant sleep because I have so many ideas in my head. I love what Im doing, and Im really red up about the future.

Jeri Tyson, who co-owns the business with her husband, Mike, has more than 30 years of residential and commercial design experience. She spent the past two years with SandStar Homes and set up their design center. While doing so, she felt some elements were missing in Punta Gorda and the surrounding area. I want to bring to Punta Gorda unique home dcor selections items from vendors people havent seen, Jeri said. The center is arranged in vignettes of room settings, accessorized so people can see how they will look in their own home, explained manager Melissa Johns, who is the daughter of the owners. Johns has experience managing design stores in other parts of the country. Each vignette at Fresh Interiors has a central color scheme, such as neutrals in the living room and blue/ green in the bedroom and sitting areas. Accessories punctuate the spaces unusual lamps of all sizes, a bowl of glistening glass orbs, vases in many shapes, tall and small candle holders and vibrant pillows highlighted with extra details. We try to have something for everyone, so that if someone wants an unusual hostess gift they can nd that here at different price points, but all still of high quality, Jeri said. Scanning the shelves for such delights, there are indeed shea butter vegetable soaps for $5 and numerous candle holders or decorative items for $20 or less. Pillows add interest to seating while others are stacked in a holder for easy viewing. Rug samples are displayed to spark ideas, from soft neutrals to perky yellow to an animal print mixture. The design room is lined with wallpaper books and fabrics to browse through. Well be getting more of both as well, Jeri said. When the Tysons cut the ribbon during the grand opening of Fresh Interiors on June 4, surrounded by members of the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce, it signaled both a new beginning and a homecoming. Jeri has 30 years of commercial and residential design experience, but this is the rst time she has owned her own residential design business. After falling in love with the area in the 1980s, the couple is delighted to be able to live and work here full-time. Jeri had a commercial design rm in St. Petersburg and handled the design of Southport Square in the late 1980s. I knew we would live here someday, she said. But business dwindled when the Gulf War started, and the couple left Florida in 1991. They traveled and moved for Mikes job as a senior vice president of nance for a health system. In 2000, they bought a home in Punta Gorda and were part-time residents. When Mike retired, it became Jeris turn to open her dream design center. Fresh Interiors is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.

One game went into overtime, and a second game was won on a three-point shot at the buzzer. While thats to be expected from a league that has become one of the best in Charlotte County, the program is much more than wins and losses. Run by and coached by the Punta Gorda Police Department, the main idea of the league is to build character, teach sportsmanship and teamwork as well as improve outreach between the police and youth in the community while improving the social skills of the young players. You have the full spectrum of kids, said PGPD Chief Albert Arenal. Its about keeping them busy during the summer while developing a bond with the ofcers. Instead of Ofcer So-andso, its Coach. The ofcers practice with the players and coach them up on Saturdays at South County Regional Parks gymnasium, where family and friends ll the few rows of bleachers to watch their loved ones in action. On June 21, the spectators saw some great action with four very competitive games, one of which was won on a Logan Rogers three-pointer at the buzzer, giving the Purple Team (The Lakers) the victory. The league started at the Cooper Street basketball courts in 2001 as a way to reach out to at-risk youth in the community. When Hurricane Charley hit two years later, the league was put on the shelf until Ofcer Gary King resurrected it in 2009. The league started with six teams and quickly grew to as many as 10. Because of how it thinned out resources for the department, the league drew back to eight teams, with nine players per squad. This season, as is tradition, the 72 slots reserved for the kids lled up quickly for play that began June 7. All the coaches are PGPD employees who give their time, just like the referees, who are as instructive as they are arbiters. The most important part is that these kids keep coming back. You watch them grow and develop that bond, said Gloria Sepanik, the PGPD accreditation manager who is also a coach. The players, who must sign a good-conduct agreement, are given their own uniforms, which are paid for, as well as for all other league expenses, by numerous community sponsors. And players such as Keyshawn Wright, 13, who stars for the Green Team, have seen the difference in how they see the police and themselves. The Jammers is fun. They teach you and you have a great time with the coaches, he said. I want to play basketball my whole life. Some people see them (the police) as bullies, but we see them as friends. Since 2009, the co-ed league has seen an improvement in the overall play. Even Charlotte High School has taken notice and gotten involved. Theyve helped us coach up these kids and observe them, Arenal said. But its also become a family tradition. Certain ones age out and new kids come in. Theres that support network. The league ends Aug. 2 with its annual tournament. Regularly scheduled games begin at 9 a.m. Saturdays at South County Regional Park, 670 Cooper St., Punta Gorda.

Friday, July 4, 2014 Herald Page 7 Chuck Ballaro Sports WriterChuck Ballaro is a freelance writer and photographer. Contact him at Charlesballaro@aol.com.At the end of Punta Gordas second season under the Cal Ripken banner, its program has shown improvement, but still lags behind other programs in the area. That seems to be the prognosis following the Regional All-Star tournament Punta Gorda hosted the weekend of June 20 at South County Regional Park, where both the U10 and U12 teams were dispatched in two games during the double-elimination tournament. Punta Gorda started play on Friday evening, and the teams had a tough act to follow on the heels of the two extra-inning ballgames played before them. The U10 squad was trounced by eventual champion Naples in the Friday opener that ended after four innings because of the mercy rule. Caden Klossner had two hits, and Mason Adkins drove home a run in the few bright spots for the blue and gold, which suited up just nine players, most of them 9 years old. Naples was real good and played lots of travel ball, said U10 coach John McQueen. Our team was comprised of mostly 9 year olds, so were getting experience. The U12 team didnt have the luxury of playing its game in one night. Following a 3-hour, nine-inning marathon, its game started at 9:45 p.m., enough time to play two innings before the lights at the park turned off automatically at 10:30 p.m., suspending the game until Saturday morning. That extra time didnt do much good, as North Fort Myers nished with an easy 10-1 win. Ethan Penn pitched well and Chris Dillow called a good game from behind the plate, but they were done in by the defense, which struggled throughout the tournament. Punta Gorda had to come back and play later in the day against Cape Coral, and the fatigue showed as Cape bounced them from the tournament 14-3 in a game that ended after the top of the fourth by the mercy rule. Punta Gorda may have found a future star in centerelder Tai-vaughn Kelly, who had two hits, scored twice and made a sensational catch in the second inning, proving to be one of the few gems of the weekend. Thankfully, the U10 team was able to produce one of the better games in the tournament against Cape Coral, taking the lead late before Cape Coral rallied to a 10-6 win to eliminate them. Trailing 4-1 in the fourth, Punta Gorda took the lead on a wild throw to rst from a Mason Warram bunt, allowing him to come all the way around to score. Cape Coral responded with three runs in the fth and sixth innings to blow the game open. Gavin Croke pitched well in defeat, getting out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam and serpentining out of another to keep Punta Gorda in the game. Adkins and Clay Hayse had two hits to lead Punta Gorda offensively. Im proud of our guys, McQueen said. They fought a lot of adversity with us losing players to injury during practice. If we had made a couple more plays, wed still be playing.Punta Gorda All-Stars fall out of local tourney HERALD PHOTOS BY CHUCK BALLAROCameron Koch, a Punta Gorda Cal Ripken U12 All-Star player, holds a North Fort Myers runner on rst base during a District 15 tournament game June 20 at South County Regional Park.

Herald Page 8 Friday, July 4, 2014 A spectacle unlike any otherStart the Fourth by participating in something that is fun, free, good exercise and a unique Punta Gorda institution aimed at celebrating our nations birthday. Nothing could t that description better than the 23rd annual Freedom Swim, an event that draws hundreds of people to swim, oat or party their way from the north side of the southbound U.S. 41 bridge to Harpoon Harrys in Fishermens Village, 1200 W. Retta Esplanade. For the benet of those who havent experienced it, the word swim doesnt do the event justice. Its better termed a spectacle as a result of its mythic origins and the creativity and spirit of the participants. The swim started some 22 years ago when Punta Gorda natives Frank Desguin and Mike Haymans, along with the late Sandy MacGibbon, conceived the idea as a way to celebrate the Fourth. Haymans and Desguin still participate and provide the minimal organizational effort required. From an original dozen or so swimmers and a couple of boats, today the swim is larger and more festive, with most participants wearing outlandish patriotic outts. Swimmers number in the hundreds, and many deploy all sorts of devices oaties, noodles, inner tubes, ippers, kickboards, dinghies and whatever else they can dream up to help them make their way across the harbor. Theres even a rumor that some go sans swimsuits once they get in the tannin-stained harbor water. In an average year, 100 boats or more are next to the swim corridor to watch and provide moral and physical support to swimmers, including eight boats devoted to monitoring them and additional Coast Guard, city, county and Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission marine units. The emphasis is always on safety, something Haymans focuses on during his preswim talk to the participants. This years swim begins at 9 a.m. to take advantage of the tides and currents. Participants should arrive at the starting point a half-hour early. The easiest commute is to park at Fishermens Village, where the Green Hibiscus Trolley will provide a free shuttle service between the village and the public beach, where the swim starts. There are always people who prefer to drive to the site, and Desguin urges them not to park in the vicinity of the take-off point. He said, People need to park on the east side of 41 and walk across under the bridge, which is just as close. Bayshore Park off Bayshore (Road) is also a good place. Desguin added, Because of the crowds around the start and cars letting swimmers off on 41, the sheriffs department wants us to pay for four ofcers for four hours, which would cost $800. We offered, Mike and I, to pay for two ofcers for two hours out of our own pocket. Were going to get together next week (the week before the Fourth) and hopefully work things out. The swim is just as much fun to watch, either from boats or at the destination. Throw on a wild Fourth outt, head to the starting point and nearby bridge and then head over to Fishermens Village and Harpoon Harrys to cheer the participants emerging from the water. The village isnt about to let a crowd go to waste, so it begins its own celebration at 11 a.m., around the time most of the swimmers begin emerging from the water. Metamasque will be painting faces until 4 p.m., with live music by the Garbage Men scheduled from noon to 3 p.m. The Kollections will play from 5 p.m. until the start of the annual reworks display at Laishley Park at 9 p.m. Visit www.shville.com for more infor mation on the days planned activities.Spend the Fourth in the parkIn most places, reworks celebrations start around dark. Not in Punta Gorda. Fireworks lovers can head over to Laishley Park at 11 a.m. after the swim and revel at 4th Fest 2014 until 10:30 p.m. The entry price is $3, with children 12 and under admitted free of charge. Fireworks, the main attraction, begin at 9 p.m., all paid for by generous sponsors and donations from the community. Jerry Clef, managing the event for Smugglers Event Management, said, Its by far the largest reworks display thats ever been shot in Punta Gorda. We had a couple of good start-off sponsors that helped us get started. Based on what we had raised in past years, we decided to add more reworks. The display should be 30 percent bigger than last year. All those hours until dark can easily be lled in with the other entertaining activities Smugglers has arranged. Live music begins at noon until the reworks begin, followed by more music after the last explosion. Bands include Moccasin Wallow, Gator Nate and the Gladezmen, The BoogieMen and the Jack Michael Band. Visit www.puntagordareworks. com for more detailed information on the entertainment. The park will be lled with vendors, booths, displays and food, beer and beverage purveyors. The big news this year is in the kids area, where 12 Water Mania water slides designed for small children up to adults will be set up in addition to games and rides. Clef said, Theres a lot of stuff for the kids to do this year. The water slides and bounce houses are covered by wristbands that cost $10 for a whole FOURTHFROM PAGE 1ON THE COVER:FILE PHOTOSFreedom Swim founder Michael Haymans addresses the crowd of swimmers each year prior to the big trek across Charlotte Harbor.

This being Florida, theres always a chance of thunderstorms to mar the festivities, but Clef said daytime rain shouldnt keep people away. Its summer in Florida. Its probably going to rain that day, but its usually over by 9, he said. We have plenty of tents, so, if there is a quick shower, there are plenty of places to get out of it. Parking is available at the park and the Charlotte County Justice Center, Laishley Crab House and boat ramp parking lots, plus side streets in the area. This great display is totally paid for by donations and sponsors; no city funding is provided. Think about throwing some cash into the donation box at the gate or visit www.puntagordareworks.com to donate during the 364 days until the 2015 reworks.Other ways to watchIts too late to get a seat for this year, but keep in mind you can also watch the reworks next year at the top of the Herald Court Centre parking garage in downtown Punta Gorda and help a needy nonprot organization at the same time. The Military Heritage Museum regularly hosts 500 people up on the roof, where the view is fantastic and amenities abound. Kim Lovejoy, executive director of the museum, said, Its beautiful up on that roof; youre right there. People can start making reservations for next year in April on our website (www.freedomisntfree. org). Amenities always include a cash bar, free hors d'oeuvres, music and enter tainment, free parking and dry places to retreat to in case of a thunderstorm. Reservations are required, and the cost is $20 per person in advance, with tables of 10 available. Seats go fast. For 2015, visit the website at least a month in advance, or call the museum at 941575-9002 for information. Many people take their boats out to the harbor to watch the reworks, which offers an unparalleled view but requires lots of work on the part of boat owners and skippers. Theres another option, however. Kingsher Fleet is offering its annual Fourth of July Fireworks Cruise. Capt. Ralph Allens big party boat, the Good Times Too, departs from the Fishermens Village dock at 7:30 p.m. for a tour of Charlotte Harbor to watch the sun set before motoring over to the after-dark reworks. The cruise includes nger foods and desserts from the Village Fish Market and Simply Sweet and an open nonalcoholic bar. Cruisers may also bring their own beverages. Like the museums rooftop party, reworks cruise tickets at $49 a piece go fast. As of this writing, Allen said some were still left. Hasten to call 941-6390969 to reserve and pre-pay for tickets. Wheels & Wings adds to the funAnother event, like the swim and the reworks day, is rapidly becoming a local institution the Peace River Riders Wheels & Wings bicycle ride. The wings in the name refers to the chicken wings, along with two beverages, that riders receive after the event. The ride was originally conceived by the club as its signature event and as a way to publicize the beautiful biking environment in the city and the county during July, when organized rides are almost nonexistent. Its succeeded beyond the clubs wildest dreams, and its conuence this year with the Fourth of July activities is likely to result in another increase in riders. Club president Court Nederveld, who is also co-directing the ride, said, The rst one drew a respectable 82 riders. Last year, Wheels & Wings IV attracted 279 registered riders. As of today (June 23), were about 40 percent ahead of last year, and that should put us up there right around 300. That estimate may be a little low. We usually get 10 percent of registrations day of, so were looking pretty good. Much like the Freedom Swim, Wheels & Wings is a unique event with many crazy moving parts. The rst is a no-spandex pub ride beginning at 6:30 p.m. July 5 to some of the citys nest watering holes, where discounts on cold ones will be offered. The main event is July 6, with registration and check-in beginning at 7 a.m. at Beef O Bradys. Four rides from 15 to 62 miles are available, pretty much standard for many rides but with the added attraction of plenty of beautiful waterfront and country scenery. A little craziness is added with the 10-mile Gentlemens Race, which is any thing but, and Speed Trap Alley, where breaking the posted speed limit wins you a frameable speeding ticket from the Punta Gorda Police Department. New this year is an after-ride attempt to break the world record for people dressed in spandex doing the Electric Slide. Nederveld, who made the whole thing up as a joke, was surprised to nd riders taking him seriously. People started talking about it, and its all over Facebook, he said. Ive been surprised to nd that half the people registered say they are going to take part. It should be pretty interesting. Theres another indication that word of the fun to be had at Wheels & Wings is spreading. Nederveld reports that 218 of the 279 riders last year were from outside Charlotte County, and this years registrants from all over Florida will make last years numbers look small. Without a doubt, this adds to the local economy.

Friday, July 4, 2014 Herald Page 11 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 29, 1974, through July 5, 1974:Fourth offers activities and moreThere will be a variety of activities and events offered to area residents on the Fourth of July. Some had to be canceled after the heavy rains recently, like the ever-popular Punta Gorda Rotary Clubs annual Fish Fry in Gilchrist Park. The 14th annual Kids Fishathon will take place at the shing pier at Port Charlotte Beach. Port Charlotte Elks Lodge 2153 plans to offer the largest hamburger in Southwest Florida. Ceremonies are on the program at American Legion Post 103, Punta Gorda, and Charlotte County Flotilla 98 U.S. Coast Guard will offer free inspections at the Punta Gorda Municipal Boat ramp, the Port Charlotte Beach ramp and Gasparilla Marina.Punta Gorda views Fishermens Village leaseAnother look at a 99-year lease requested for a $3.4 million Fishermens Village complex in Punta Gorda will be taken by the Punta Gorda City Council next Tuesday. The lease was requested by Nightingale Friends, Inc., to allow construction of a restaurant-marina development on the old city dock at the Maud Park area on West Retta Esplanade.School is out, safety firstSchool is out and children are at home, which is nice. Charlotte mothers and fathers agree. What we are concerned about is that they will be in good shape to return to school this fall in one piece, maimed as little as possible. This message has two main audiences: automobile drivers and parents. Instruct the youngsters in the safe use of any equipment. Yours for a happy and safe summer. Hospital drive startsMedical Center Hospital ofcially launched its $300,000 fundraising drive today. The Punta Gorda Rotary Club made the rst donation of a $3,000 memorial gift to equip a private room. Taking part in the presentation were John Fugua, Rotary president; Bo Lehman, Rotary secretary; C.E. Curtis, fundraiser director; and Jack Weisberg, hospital administrator.Masonic Temple opened by charter ceremonyPunta Gordas new Masonic Temple has been dedicated and charters have been placed. Melvin Byers, worshipful master of Punta Gorda Lodge 115, presided at the recent dinner ceremony. On hand were members of the Lodge, Order of the Eastern Star and Rainbow Girls. Tracing the lodges history revealed that the charter was dated Jan. 21, 1890, and signed by Harvey Long, then grand master, according to treasurer John Matthews. This is the lodges third home in its 84-year history. It was begun in the old railroad building, then went to the West Olympia Avenue two-story quarters. And, now, they moved to the new home at the intersection of Airport and Taylor roads. The new lodge was built by contractor B.C. Nuzum.Rodman an expert in ice cream Norman Rodman is the owner of the Ice Cream Parlour in Punta Gorda. He is an expert in knowing everything about something cold. Rodman came to Florida 17 years ago from Alberta, Canada. He started in Miami and worked in the boating business. Shortly after visiting friends in Punta Gorda, he moved here. He then opened the Ice Cream Parlour, selling both bulk as well as cones for the lovers of frozen delights. The location was on West Marion Avenue, across from the Punta Gorda Mall. Rodman decided to expand, and the business is now a bigger store, which has magazines, gifts for visitors and a recreation section for the younger set. CAYO COSTA DENTAL FREDERICK J.

The Sun Classified Page 12E/N/Cads.yoursun.netFriday, July 4, 2014 ZITSByJerryScott&JimBorgman GARFIELDByJimDavis FRESHLYSQUEEZEDByEdStein DILBERTByScottAdams REXM O R G ANByWoodyW i lsonandTerryBeatty MARYWORTHByKarenMoyandJoeGiellaDEAR DR. ROACH: I r ead your column in May about tuberculosis. I have questions. Every time I get tested for tuberculosis, the test is positive. When I have chest X-rays, they come back clean. I was told by my doctors that somewhere I came into contact with someone who had TB. I have arthritis r heumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. I am taking prednisone every day and methotrexate injection every Wednesday. I have blood tests once a month. My doctor wants to start me on medication for the TB-positive reaction so that she can start me with infusions for the arthritis. I am scared to start any of these medications. I am on a lot of medication and just dont want to start with all new medications. C an you please explain the procedure of treating the positive TB testing before taking medications for arthritis. What are the side effects of combining all of them. I am scared. L.K. ANSWER: M any people get exposed to the bacter ia that cause tuberculosis. A few of them will develop what we call latent infection, where there are live bacteria in the body, but the bodys defenses keep it from becoming active tuberculosis. Only in active tuberculosis is someone contagious, and symptoms include cough, fever and weight loss. A positive skin test indicates infection: A negative X -ray conrms no active tuberculosis. We worry about latent infection because it has the potential at any time to become active tuberculosis by escaping the bodys defenses. About 8 percent of people with latent TB will convert to active TB in their lifetimes. A drop in the immune system, such as stress, getting older or, as is important in your case, medications that suppress the immune system can bring about that switch to active infection. Tr eatment of latent infection is recommended for most adults; however, it is particularly recommended for high-risk people such as those on steroids like prednisone, people known to have acquired latent TB within the past two years, and r ecent immigrants from high-prevalence areas. There are three different one-drug regimens that ran ge from four-month to nine-month duration. The most commonly used drug, isoniazid, can cause liver damage, and the ri sk increases with older age. The risk is small for those under the age of 35, so everybody under 35 should be treated for latent TB. After age 35, risks and benets need to be individually we ighed. The age effect is more important than most drug interactions, although these need to be examined as well. In yo ur case, because you ar e currently taking prednisone, and especially because your doctor is considering injection medication for your arthritis, I agree with your doctor that the benets of treatment are likely to outweigh the risks, and yo u should be treated. She will monitor you carefully for side effects, especially liver disease. The major symptom to look out for is nausea, which you should immediately tell your doctor about and come in for testing. Dont wait for any yellowing of the skin, because then it is too late. DEAR DR. ROACH: You wrote about the health benets of nuts. Does ro asting them matter? A friend says they need to be raw. A. ANSWER: The data showing improved heart disease rates in people who eat nuts looked both at raw nuts and roasted. Ma ny roasted nuts include more salt than you want, and some roast in unhealthy oils. Look for dry-roasted and low or no salt. Dr. Roach regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but will incorporate them in the column whenever possible.

I have a wooden front door and glass and metal back doors. P aula in Tennessee He re are some easy w ays to clean both. For the w ooden door, use a broom to sweep away any excess dirt and cobwebs. Hose it down, and then use a microber cloth to wipe dry. If you want, you can use a soft terry towel and car or furniture polish to give it a coat of wax to protect it from the elements. F or the glass and metal doors, clean the glass with full-strength vinegar and dry with newspaper for no streaks. Then wipe the metal portion of the door w ith a damp rag (water only). Any metal hardware, doorknobs, hinges, etc., can be cleaned with a little soap and water. Whenever I clean my doors, I take the time to check the w eatherstripping to see if it needs replacing. Clean doors make for an inviting entranceway! HeloiseTra vel hintDear Heloise: We recently had the experience of missing luggage while traveling abroad. Adding to the confusion was our difculty communicating with the airline r epresentative due to language issues. He asked us to describe the missing luggage and showed us a poster of many different sizes, shapes and colors. Ul timately, we did reunite with our bags six hours later. However, on the way back, we snapped a photograph of our luggage just prior to checking it in. How easy it would have been to identify the luggage had we had this photo to show the airline baggage coordinator. Linda G., via emailClean car matsDear Heloise: My r ubber car mats are really dirty.

Then let them air-dry thoroughly before putting them back into your car. To ke ep them cleaner between scrubbings, take them out and vacuum regularly. Vinegar is a cheap and eco-friendly cleaner.

HOROSCOPE DEAR ABBY: T wo years ago I was involved in an unhealthy relationship for me and my children. D espite what everyone said, I gave him the benet of the doubt. He ended up assaulting me and my kids. F or two months I struggled with depression, and I admit I wasnt the r esponsible parent I should have been. Child Protective Ser vices took the children. I hold myself accountable for my actions and my failure. My parents are angry with me because of poor choices I made in the past and treat me like the black sheep of the family. Granted, my mother, brother and I all have issues stemming from the past, but Im tired of playing the guilt card, tired of playing the victim and tired of not having my family back me up at a time when I need their support to regain custody of my kids. I miss my family and what good times we did have. How do I even begin to put the pieces back together on a very broken family? THE BLACK SHEEP DEAR BLACK SHEEP: F ixing your broken family is something all of you must be willing to work on together, or it wont be successful. Because your mother and brother are unwilling, what you need to do is start xing yourSELF. R egaining custody will depend upon your ability to establish your independence, support y our children and yourself nancially, and start counseling to deal with y our issues so you wont get into another destructive, abusive relationship. It will take work and time, but if y ou can do it and I think y ou can your mother and brother will respect y ou for it. And you will be stronger and healthier because you will no longer be so needy. DEAR ABBY: I have been dating Gene for three y ears, living together for a y ear and a half. Were both divorced and love each other very much. O ur biggest problem is, he doesnt keep a normal schedule. Gene eats at odd hours, exercises at the strangest times and will stay awake until the wee hours of the morning, then crash for a day or so. He seems unfazed by this wackiness. Hes re sponsible, holds a good job and comes from a terric family, but his habits are taking a toll on me. There are days when I want him home for dinner, or I want to cuddle with him. I want a normal schedule. This is tricky because I have accepted his lifestyle and now the brakes have come on for me. Gene doesnt understand my sudden change of attitude, and frankly, neither do I. Do I have only two choices accept him for who he is or nd someone who follows a more conventional schedule? I love him so much that leaving would be very hard to do. WANTS A NORMAL LIFE DEAR WANTS: It would be interesting to know what Gene does for a living. Does he work in a casino? Show business? It s possible your change in attitude has come about because you now realize that you might be living his unconventional lifestyle for the rest of your life. C ompromises you could make on a temporary basis can seem daunting when you see theyll be permanent. If you need someone who lives his life on a normal schedule, one of yo u will have to make some changes. You will either have to accept this as your future or Gene will have to change his lifestyle. Because he seems to thrive on the schedule hes living on, the adjustment may be very difcult for him. TO MY READERS: Have a happy, healthy and safe Four th of July, everyone! LOVE, ABBY Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalms 119:105. Living life without the benet of the Word of God is like trying to see in the dark.
