It could happen to anyone. Virginia Zuppe left her keys with an auto mechanic for repairs, got a ride home and realized her house key was on the key ring. The shop was closed and she was locked out of her house. Not knowing whom to call, a friend of the 72-year-old Punta Gorda resident found Port Charlotte Locksmith online. Its minimum quoted charge was $55. Virginia said a tech picked the lock in about 30 minutes. The charge was $389. I told him this was too much, Virginia said. He called the ofce and was able to get me a discount to $329. The discount was because he thought I was paying in cash and a senior discount, said Virginia. I didn't have enough cash so I had to write a check. Virginia said the tech told her to make the check out to him personally. She received a non-itemized generic receipt. Still believing she was overcharged, Virginia tried calling the manager at Port Charlotte Locksmith. I was repeatedly told there had never been an order placed for service at that address on that evening, and was told that (the technician) didn't work there. After awhile they just started hanging up on me. Unfortunately, after Port Charlotte Locksmith employees gave me two bogus email addresses to forward Virginias concern, a woman identifying herself as the manager hung up on me as well. I could do little else. Thats because in Florida unlike 14 states including New Jersey, Illinois, Connecticut and California the locksmith industry is unregulated. Yet Port Charlotte Locksmith misleadingly promotes that its licensed. But its actu ally a small local business tax, formerly called an occupational license tax. These so-called locksmiths quote very low prices on the phone but charge exorbitant rates once on site, explained Ken Kupferman, past president of the 6,000-member Associated Locksmiths of America (ALOA). The consumer has waited so long by this point and it is usually an emergency situation, so they pay the amount and chalk it up to experience. It is giving the entire locksmith profession a bad reputation. Charles Deily, an ALOA certied Master locksmith running Port Charlotte Lock & Key since 1977 and a 2013 Sun Readers Choice Award nalist conrmed Virginias suspicions, saying unlocking a standard door lock without any complications or drilling should run around $70. After hours adds another $30 or so. Deily says a reputable locksmith should be able to provide a verbal esti mate range on the phone. He adds the tech should arrive in a marked service vehicle and ask you to provide proof of ownership of your vehicle or home. You should also get an itemized invoice on company letterhead. Checks shouldnt be written to individuals. So how do you pick a good locksmith? Besides word-of-mouth, search for ALOA-certied members by ZIP code at www.aloa.org or call 214-819-9733. ALOA performs background checks on all its members who abide by a code of ethics and participate in continuing education. The organization promises complete investigations of complaints against its members. And before you need one, put the locksmiths number in your cellphone.

Christopher Allen Best, 26, had his 6-year-old son in the car with him when his Oldsmobile 88 struck two workmen just before 10 p.m., pinning them against a stopped pickup that was in the inside lane with a ashing arrow on it warning trafc to move over a lane, the report shows. The workers Jemel Gardner, 39, of Lehigh Acres, and Mark Andrew Caton, 22, of Punta Gorda were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers with life-threatening injuries. Gardner died shortly thereafter, and Caton remained in the surgical section of the Intensive Care Unit Thursday afternoon. The men who worked for DBI Services, which is contracted to do road management for the Florida Department of Transportation were laying trafc cones so they could replace old reectors on the roadway. A work pickup ahead of them was illuminated, but Best failed to observe the blinking lights, according to the FHP. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the men involved, FDOT spokeswoman Debbie Tower said Thursday.Roadside worker killedBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERReport: Drunken driver had son in carDRUNKEN | 12 SUN PHOTO BY PETER ARATARIChristopher Best, 26, of Port Charlotte, was arrested on a DUI manslaughter charge after crashing his Oldsmobile into two roadside workers killing one late Wednesday on U.S. 41 in Charlotte Harbor.Laurie Duppenthaler said she will never forget helping a little boy in Charlotte County who was involved in a lawn mower accident last year. The lawn mower ran over his foot, and we had to fly him to Tampa, Duppenthaler, a Tampa General Hospital Aeromed flight nurse, recalled about one of her youngest patients. But hes 4 years old now, and hes doing great. The two got a chance to meet up Thursday, as did other members of the Aeromed 5 flight team and patients theyve helped. The TGH Aeromed team began offering services in Charlotte County last year, so the group held an open house at Charlotte County Fire Station 7 located adjacent to the Punta Gorda Airport to meet the public. (Aeromed 5) is great for Charlotte County, said Charlotte County Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch, who was on hand with other commissioners and local officials. They do a fantastic job, helping to save lives. But its not an easy job, as Duppenthaler pointed out. PORT CHARLOTTE Immigration, the penny sales-tax referendum, Murdock Village and code enforcement were part of a wide-ranging discussion Wednesday evening during a candidates forum at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County. Meet the Candidates, to which the Charlotte County Curmudgeon Club played host, offered election hopefuls an opportunity to state their qualifications, but most of the threehour session was devoted to answer ing questions from an audience of about 50 potential voters. On hand were contenders wanting to represent the Charlotte County Commission, the Charlotte County Airport Authority and the Charlotte County School Board. The commission race drew most of the attention. The immigration issue surfaced when candidates were asked about the proposed federal E-Verify system that would require Americans to carry a special Social Security card as a tool to prevent illegal immigrants from obtaining employment. Challengers Paula Schaff (District 2) and Jason Stoltzfus (District 4) both threw their support behind E-Verify. But David Ivankovic (District 4) said he would not favor such a program if it meant using county tax dollars. I would not vote for anything that would incur additional cost, he said. The discussion then turned to the situation at the southern U.S. border, where tens of thousands of Central American children and immigrant families are seeking entry. The two incumbents both voiced strong opposition, saying the children are being used as political pawns. Our immigration policy is an absolute mess.

The last few days have been drier than normal around Southwest Florida, but expect things to change heading into the weekend. According to Tyler Fleming, a meteorologist with the National Weather Services Tampa ofce, residents can expect thunderstorms today through the early part of next week. Moving into Saturday and Sunday, its going to be about a 60 (percent) to 70 percent (chance of rain) and that will at least through the earlier part of the week continue, Fleming said. There will be a lot of thunderstorms, especially in the afternoon. Of course, thats typical this time of year, he said. Inland temperatures will be in the mid-90s, and will drop slightly (high 80s to low 90s) the closer you move to the coast. But it wont stay quite that hot the whole week, Fleming said. Although with the heat index, temperatures will feel a lot hotter. It looks like (today) the heat index will be right around 100, Fleming said. Residents are warned to stay indoors when the heat index hits 105. Thats when we usually start to issue advisories, Fleming said. He recommends that anyone spending time outside this weekend car ry a few basic provisions. With the heat, if youre going to be outdoors, make sure you have a lots of water, wear sunscreen and try to get as much shade as you can, Fleming said. Also, beware of lightning. July is the peak month for lightning fatali ties, with August coming in at a close second, he said. The National Weather Services rule is, if you can hear thunder, youre close enough to be struck by lightning. So if you can hear thunder roar, go indoors, Fleming said.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comThunderstorms on tap this weekendBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITER NORTH PORT After retiring last August, Jon Ryan of North Port decided to become a Big Brother for the third time. Knowing that Ryan, 66, preferred a Little interested in playing baseball, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast spokeswoman Gina Taylor knew exactly who to match with Ryan because of their shared interests 10-year old Dillon Maretti. Since the match last November, those shared interests allowed for Dillon to nish his rst year of Little League. Although BBBS suggests that matches meet once per week, Ryan goes above and beyond, bringing Dillon to his games and practices three times a week while his mom is at work. Dillons mother, Melissa Maretti, a single mom, enrolled her son in the one-on-one mentoring program after a therapist proposed it, but never expected the match to be so successful. I am so thankful this match turned out the way it did, Melissa said. It is just so cool to see them interact and joke together. Big Brother Ryan and Little Brother Dillon practice at indoor batting cages around town, have gone go-kart racing and enjoy shing and water sports, according to Dillon, but much more comes along with their hangouts. According to Ryan, We talk a lot about school or his mom. Hes 10, so if he is not channeling his energy into doing good stuff, he is doing bad stuff. Dillon agrees, saying his favorite thing about spending time together is getting to talk, even about funny things in the past. Melissa says BBBS has offered the opportunity for Ryan to help teach Dillon how to become a good man, have a healthy relationship with a male gure who may not be family, and spend time with someone who genuinely wants to be there. Ryan is a very positive person, she said, and Melissa loves seeing her son get excited when getting ready to spend time with his Big. I just want them to continue for as long as possible, Melissa said. I want him to be at Dillons graduation, at his wedding. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast, headquartered in Venice, maintains community boards in 10 counties from the Tampa area to Naples. Its mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong, enduring, professionally support ed, one-to-one relationships with adult mentors that change their lives for the better forever. The organization is still searching for volunteers to become mentors for about 35 children in North Port waiting their turn for a Big, according to Taylor. To become a Big, the process entails a background check, fingerprinting, three references and an extensive interview, she said. Once the potential Big is approved, a match may move forward. This upcoming year, Big Brothers is hoping for more than 1,800 matches.

The Sun /Friday, August 1, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 3 PORT CHARLOTTE When an emergency aris es, such as a hurricane or a tornado, agencies such as the American Red Cross and The Salvation Army immediately or ganize to assist those in need. In addition to their efforts, they are aided by many local organizations as well. One such group is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, located on Forrest Nelson Boulevard, which has been quietly helping its members, and residents, in Charlotte County for more than 40 years. We work behind the scenes, mainly through the Red Cross, Bishop Donald MacDonald said. This is done on a nationwide level, not just locally. In the event of a natural disaster, or if one of our members or anyone in the area needs our help, the church will mobilize and fulll those needs as best we can. The churchs congregations, or wards, are broken up geographically, according to MacDonald. His stretches from the Lee County line all the way to Sumter Boulevard in North Port. MacDonald said he is charged as the bishop to assist those in his geographical area. His church networks with other religious groups to look after the welfare of members and residents. If there are less than 300 parishioners, it is called a branch; more than 300 is a ward, MacDonald said, and 11 to 12 wards make up what we call a stake. Currently, we have 530 members in our ward, and about 180 to 200 attend services every Sunday, so we are a very active church. I must stress you do not have to be a member of the church to receive assistance from us. And active is a key word when describing the churchs community activities. Whether it is manual labor, serving food at the shelter, or monetary donations, members gather to help their neighbors through local nonprots such as Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity, the Empty Bowls Project, the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition, prison ministry, the Charlotte County Historical Center Society and Kiwanis Clubs. On a given Saturday, 30 to 40 church members will meet at sunrise to assist Habitat for Humanity in building a home for a Charlotte County resident. By 4 p.m., they will have the shell of the dwelling standing. College students, from as far away as Nova Scotia, traveled to lend a hand in the construction project as well. We partnered with Habitat for Humanity and dedicated our fth home on July 23, spokeswoman Margaret Bogardus said. We build a new home each year, and will start another one this coming January. Bogardus said the church is at the homeless coalition the rst Sunday of each month to provide a hot, nutritious meal to the areas homeless free of charge. In the past, members have donated as much as $5,000 in canned food to the coalition, and will give another $1,000 worth of nonperishable items in the near future. Much of the canned food provided for the local agencies comes from Deseret Ranch, a sprawling 300,000-acre working cattle ranch that employs 90 ranchers, many of whom are the original settlers when the property was purchased in the early 1950s. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the largest landowner in the state, according to Bogardus. It has 105 canneries across the country, with one located in Plant City, Fla., that processes canned foods that are distributed to local food pantries. Robin Hagan is president of the Relief Society, an organization within the church for women 18 years old and older. Established in 1842, its purpose is to build faith and personal righteousness, to strengthen families and homes, and to help those in need. Our society sisters have different callings some are home teachers that are allocated to certain families, she said. For example, a next-door neighbor of one of our members lost their house to a re. We assembled food, clothing items, water, diapers because they had small children whatever they needed until they got a permanent residence. Member Dawn Hill said the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints relies heavily upon volunteers. From the nursery leader, all the way up to the general authorities of the church, Hill said. Everything is based upon volunteerism. Bogardus said the ward in Port Charlotte is committed to giving back to the community when the need arises. We are here to offer a hand up, not a handout, for those who may be walking a ne line between survival and despair, she said. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is located at 1303 Forrest Nelson Blvd. For more information, call 941-627-6446.Church volunteers work behind scenesBy AL HEMINGWAYSUN CORRESPONDENT Have you thought about volunteering? It is a perfect way to connect with your community. The simple act of offering your skills and enthusiasm will positively impact the lives of others and also yourself! Helping others always makes you feel better and provides you with a stronger sense of pur pose. A classic example of people who constantly give of themselves at Charlotte County Habitat is Russell and Wilma Collier. Retiring to Florida from Indiana, their path with Charlotte County Habitat crossed when their son was approved for home ownership and they came to help him with his sweat equity hours. That was in 2006 and they have been volunteering ever since! On any given day, you will see Wilma in our receiving area sorting, cleaning, testing and organizing donated items getting them ready for the showroom. Its not hard work, it keeps me busy. It feels good to give back to others and its a stimulating environment, connecting with and meeting new people all the time, stated Wilma. Russell works in the computer department. Ive always had a passion for computers and joined a computer club in the community several years ago. I learned of the need for volunteers to help in Habitats computer department and so I tried it out. Ive even brought in other volunteers from the computer club to help; George Whittaker, Ed Osterstock and the late Norm Smith. We enjoy helping out for a purpose. Russell and Wilma were presented this year with the Call to Service Silver Volunteer award, logging close to 500 hours each this past year. We are truly blessed and grateful for the many volunteers that make Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity operate on a daily basis. We could not help as many families as we do without the continued support from the community. Volunteer opportunities at Habitat are numerous and can work around your schedule. From construction to ofce and resale locations, why not give us a call and see where you can make a difference. We look forward to getting to know you.

Our Town Page 4 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, August 1, 2014 ENGLEWOOD With the onset of the new moon, Linda Soderquist worried about the impacts upon hatching sea turtle nests. A few more disorientations all sky glow to the north of Little Gasparilla Island, Soderquist reported July 25. She is the principal permit holder overseeing sea turtle nesting patrols on Little Gasparilla Island. She was expecting more disorientations this week on the south end of the island where the Gulf beach is wider and doesnt enjoy vegetative buffers. We have put up silt/ light barriers around nests ready to hatch, but the hatchlings often clear the barrier and then turn to crawl to the north anyway, parallel to the shoreline, Soderquist said. So frustrating to work so hard to mark and protect nests, only to have them disorient. On Manasota Key, Zoe Bass said, Sky glow is always an issue but its much worse at and around the new moon when the sky is the darkest. Bass and Wilma Katz are the principal permit holders overseeing Coastal Wildlife Club volunteer sea turtle patrols on Manasota Key. Theres much individuals can do not to disturb nesting sea turtles or hatchlings emerging from their nests such as shading or turning off articial lights shining onto Gulf beaches and not disturbing the turtles with ashlights and ash cameras on the beach. The sky glow, however, is a larger issue and not just limited to local Gulf beaches. The Sea Turtle Conservancy website at www.conserveturtles. org reported how: Coastal communities around the world have passed ordinances that require residents turn off beachfront lights during turtle nesting season. Unfortunately, these ordinances are not always enforced and dont address the larger problem of sky glow that occurs near cities. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has also posted on www.myfwc. com a detailed technical report that explains how articial lighting can dissuade the female sea turtles from nesting and disorientate the young turtles emerging from their nests. As far as the nesting, the CWC reported July 25 that 2,978 loggerhead nests, 11 green sea turtle nests and two Kemps ridley nests on Manasota Key. Soderquist reported 129 loggerhead nests and one green turtle nest on Little Gasparilla Island. The loggerhead nests surpass what was reported on Manasota Key and Little Gasparilla Island last year during the same time period. Mote Marine Laboratory oversees sea turtle nesting patrols north from Venice to Longboat Key. On its website at www.mote. org, as of Saturday, Mote reported 2,268 loggerhead nests of which 1,101 were on Casey Key and another 335 on Venice Gulf beaches. Mote also reported three green turtle nests, two on Casey Key and one on Longboat Key in Manatee County.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comDarkest nights worry sea turtle patrolsBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERTURTLE TIPSEnglewoods Coastal Wildlife Club and Mote Marine Laboratory offer these tips to protect the turtles and hatchlings: Disconnect, shield or turn off outdoor lights visible on the beach. Close drapes after dark and move beach furniture off the beach. Turn off, move or adjust interior lights that may be visible from the beach. Do not use flashlights, tiki torches, fishing lanterns, photo flashes or fireworks on Gulf beaches at night. Enjoy building sand castles, digging holes or other play on the Gulf beaches, but refill any holes before you leave. Nesting sea turtles and their hatchlings can be trapped or injured. Remove canopies, chairs, toys and other obstructions from beaches at night. Do mini-cleanups of debris on the beach that might hinder nesting turtles or hatchlings. Food scraps left on the beaches attract raccoons and other predators. Do not allow dogs on the beach. Even leashed dogs, just by being there, can frighten turtles, dig up nests or harm hatchlings or shorebird chicks, causing the mother to abandon the nest. If a nesting turtle or hatchlings are spotted, remain quiet, at a distance so as not to disturb them. For marine wildlife emergencies, including dead or injured adult sea turtles and disoriented hatchlings and disruption of nests, call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Division of Law Enforcement at 888-404-3922, or visit www.Myfwc.com/law/Alert. PHOTO PROVIDED BY MOTE MARINE LABORATORYThese loggerhead hatchlings begin their lifes journey. This season, local beaches are seeing high numbers of sea turtle nests. ENGLEWOOD The Englewood Area Fire Control District has been asked to be one of two teams representing the United States in the World Rescue Challenge. Extrication teams will compete in timed scenarios to simulate real-world situations where victims are trapped in vehicles. More than 30 departments worldwide are expected to compete. The event is being held Oct. 9-12 outside London. The first challenge for the Englewood team firefighters Joseph Mills, Pat Zadai, Shane Williams, Jamie McDaniel, Richard Chapura and Rusty McCord Jr. is to raise the $15,000 needed for airfare and lodging. The firefighters have begun their fundraising with a raffle for a 50inch flat-screen Sceptre TV. There will be the cream-of-the-crop European teams competing, Englewood Fire Chief Scott Lane said. He described the fire district participation in the World Rescue Organization event as very prestigious and a real accomplishment. The other U.S. team is the Miami-Dade FireRescue a department significantly larger than Englewoods 57-member crew. We are very proud to be one of the two teams representing the United States, and we think its a big thing for the little town of Englewood, Lane said. The challenge offers more than bragging rights. Teams learn from other departments new techniques and time-saving approaches to extricating victims trapped in vehicles. The WRO is more a teaching-based organization, Lane said. He cited how European departments approach rescues differently. The participating teams bring back to their departments what they learn. We learn a lot of techniques such as glass management or popping doors, Lane said. And what we bring back makes the fire district safer. Like anything else, the Englewood firefighters train often, once or twice a week, on extrication efforts, thanks to Gluecks Auto Parts in Osprey. Gluecks lets Englewood firefighters practice on its salvaged vehicles, Lane said. As far as the team itself, Mills said they are a young team, only together for four months, and are working on their teamwork and cohesiveness. He and the other members are ecstatic to represent the fire district and the greater Englewood community in a world event, Mills said. However much depends on whether the fundraising effort is successful.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comLondon calling to Englewood firefightersBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERENGLEWOOD FIREFIGHTERS RAFFLEThe Englewood Area Fire Control District extrication team has been asked to compete in the World Rescue Challenge in London.

She said everyone is invited to pay their respects at the crash site at Caspersen Beach in Venice from 7:30 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. Ommy, 36, a U.S. Army sergeant and Iraq War veteran stationed at Fort Stewart, Ga., was celebrating his ninth wedding anniver sary Sunday when he and his daughter were hit from behind by a single-engine Piper Cherokee plane making an emergency landing on the beach. Ommy died at the scene; his daughter Oceana died Tuesday at All Childrens Hospital in St. Petersburg. Pilot Karl Kokomoor, 57, and his passenger were not hurt. Kokomoor said in a statement that as he struggled to land the plane following engine failure, he thought the beach looked remote and he never saw Ommy and his daughter. DeLutis has reached out to the pilot to say he would be welcome on Saturday. A minister will lead the service, and DeLutis is hoping a veterans organization will conduct a flag ceremony, with the flag to be presented to the family later. Participants are asked to bring glow sticks rather than candles, and to respect the beach and its wildlife. DeLutis said shes had a very positive response to her idea. Its heartening to know the community is really rallying around it, she said. Also, family friend Rhonda Ruesch started a donation website to collect funds for funer al and other expenses. It is located at www. gofundme.com/c9pbfc. As of Thursday, more than $8,800 had been donated to the Irizarry family.Memorial planned for plane crash victimsSTAFF REPORT PHOTO PROVIDEDOmmy Irizarry with his 9-year-old daughter Oceana.SCHOOL SUPPLIES NEEDEDThe Charlotte Local Education Foundations school supply drive still can use community help.

The Sun /Friday, August 1, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 7 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. A man who robbed a bank in Venice in November 2013 while wearing what looks like an Albert Einstein Halloween mask has been arrested, according to the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce. Matthew Donald Lynch Maxwell, 29, of Tampa, came into the Wells Fargo Bank at 1301 U.S. 41 Bypass in Venice on Nov. 2 and demanded money from one of the tellers, who gave it to him, according to an SCSO report. He was wearing a Halloween mask and latex gloves. One of the customers followed Maxwell as he left and saw him get on a bicycle and ride it to the rear of the bank, according to a report. The customer chased Maxwell and caught up to him in the parking lot of 1950 Center Road. Maxwell then dropped the bicycle and sprayed the victim with pepper spray, according to deputies. Maxwell removed the mask and got into a red Chevy Cruze and drove away, deputies said. The victim said he got a good look at Maxwell without the mask and took a picture of the car with his cellphone as it drove away. Another witness who was sitting inside his vehicle nearby also saw the suspect without the mask. On July 19, a tip identified Maxwell as the suspect. Deputies organized a photo lineup, and both witnesses picked out Maxwells photo, the report shows. Maxwells wife was a registered owner of a 2011 red Chevy Cruze at the time of the crime. Detectives obtained a warrant for Maxwell and he was arrested Wednesday in Atlanta by the Atlanta Police Department on a Sarasota County Sheriffs warrant. Maxwell is facing charges of felony bank robbery and battery. Elsewhere, Maxwell is a suspect in more than a dozen other crimes and additional charges are pending, SCSO ofcials say.Bank robber who wore Einstein mask in Venice holdup arrestedBy KATE IRBYBRADENTON HERALD PHOTO PROVIDED BY THE SARASOTA COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICEMatthew Donald Lynch Maxwell was wearing a Halloween mask and latex gloves when he committed the bank robbery, authorities say.

Our Town Page 8 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, August 1, 2014 Election letters deadline Aug.19Editors note: We will be accepting letters related to the Aug. 26 primary election until 5 p.m. Aug. 19.Paula Scha is best choiceEditor: As I read the paper this Sunday morning, the news about the coming elections brings to mind how important our choices can be. We want commissioners who are capable of making intelligent decisions about our county. I recently had occasion to view a video on my computer of a County Commission meeting where a citizen went to the trouble to spend his time to appeal to the commission about an issue. His comments were received by the audience with applause followed by a stern admonishment by commission Chairman Constance that he would clear the room if there was any further applause. He was clearly displeased with the views of the citizen input. Following that were awards presented to various people and in each instance the audience and commissioners applauded. Constances dictatorial admonishment would have angered most witnesses. There is a choice in the race for his seat, Paula Schaff. Ive met Paula and have followed her untiring efforts to encourage good government on various levels. She is knowledgeable and I believe Paula would be a conscientious commissioner who would listen to the people. Weve had too much of the royalty attitude of politicians who think they know whats best for us regardless of what we want. I urge you to check out Paula Schaff and vote for her in the upcoming elections.Frank Hill Port CharlotteMany packages sent to the troopsEditor: The Packages to the Troops fundraiser has come to an end with 54 packages mailed in July to the troops serving overseas. Including this mailing PTTTS has mailed a total of 3,164 packages since July 2007, when the first ones were shipped. A special thank you goes to all volunteers who have donated their time to pack boxes with items, including toiletries, books, goodies, handmade hats, rosaries and more. Thanks to those who continually donated to help with postage. That is what made the program such a success. A special thanks goes to the post office in Englewood who serviced the program no matter how many packages we were mailing. I wish I could name all who took part in this fundraiser for our troops but that would be impossible without missing someone. The troops receiving packages couldnt have been more appreciative. This fundraiser was sponsored by the Council of Catholic Women, St. Raphael Church in Englewood. So, thank you, thank you, thank you.Marianne Riley EnglewoodDeutsch brings people togetherEditor: I am writing to congratulate Stephen R. Deutsch on his many endorsements across a broad range of organizations and their members. His supporters range from the 700-plus grassroots members of the Dollars for Deutsch Club, our local firefighters, paramedics and law enforcement, the local builders and contractors association and the Punta Gorda Tea Party, to name just a few. Bringing these diverse groups and individuals together, with such varied and oftentimes opposing viewpoints, is no easy task. By doing so, Stephen R. shows his greatest strength he is a bridge-builder. Stephen R. builds those bridges by making sure that construction begins on a solid foundation. This can only be done by exhaustively researching each topic, gathering advice and counsel from all the stakeholders and then making an informed decision that is in the best interest of all the countys citizens. Sometimes the decisions that are made by the county commissioners are not popular, but Stephen R.s record shows that he is committed to doing the right thing regardless of the personal consequences. I ask that each of you join me and vote for Stephen R. Deutsch for Charlotte County Commissioner District 4, either by absentee, during early voting or on Primary Election Day, Aug. 26.E. Scott Heinis Port CharlotteDisappointed by parking at festivalEditor: I was excited to go to the Pirate Fest this last weekend. So, as I turn into Fishermens Village I was met with a very unpleasant surprise. At least 50 percent of the parking spaces were blocked off so they could charge $5 to park. Then, they had another section on the side of the building blocked off for the tenants of the condos because they had used the parking spaces for vendors. For such a large event, to take away so many parking places was a travesty. With temperatures over 90 degrees and many elderly patrons this was a very poor idea. I have never been to any event at Fishermens Village that charged for parking. Had I not been there really early I would have gone home. I talked to other people who were supposed to join us, and because of the parking situation, they turned around and went home. I would rethink this for 2015.Pamela Gross Port CharlotteSupporting Israel is the right thingEditor: At last! You have finally printed an editorial column that truly tells the difference between Israel and Hamas. Rich Lowry should be commended for his article. There is not one Arab country that wants to deal with Hamas. Therefore, the Palestinian people are in a no-win situation. So why should any other country in the world feel sorry for Hamas? They are terrorists. Their only interest is destroying Israel. They do not care for their own people. Several years ago we went to Israel for our nephews wedding. No one in this country can truly appreciate how fortunate we are. If Canada or Mexico were fir ing rockets into the United States on a daily basis, do you think our government would sit idly by allowing this to occur? If you think so, you have to be totally ignorant. So why should the Israelis? Lets say you and your wife want to go out to dinner in Israel. Guess what? Every person is searched before they can enter a restaurant, shopping mall, hospital, or any place where people gather. Would you like to live like this? I doubt it. Its time for the world to support Israel because it is the right thing to do.Darlene Rosen Punta GordaIvankovic signs in proper spotsEditor: Charlotte County is in the process of holding another local election. The campaign signs have been put in place throughout the county, and will remain erect until the election is over. I encourage the voters of Charlotte County to take notice of the candidates who choose to ignore local sign ordinances. Although this may seem petty, it clearly indicates the candidate possesses the Im above the law mentality. You can view the rules of sign postings from the Code Compliance Division of Charlotte County at www. charlottevotes.com. (D)(3). No such sign shall be erected, posted, painted, tacked, nailed or otherwise displayed, placed or located within, on or above any state or county right of way. Upon a determination by the county that a violation of this restriction exists at one or more locations, the signs may be immediately removed or be caused to be removed by the county. While driving down Veterans Highway and U.S. 41, I couldnt help noticing signs in the right of way. Im voting for Dave Ivankovic. You wont spot his campaign signs where they dont belong.Genie Sheene Punta GordaSome will receive insurance refundsEditor: In the July 25 edition, you reported on Page 6 of The Wire that 1 million Floridians who bought insurance under the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) will be receiving refunds from the government. The truth is not one of these people will receive a refund. These refunds will go to people who had insurance in 2012 and prior to the law going into effect Jan. 1, 2013. The people who bought insurance in 2013 under Obamacare will not be eligible for refund until 2014. While many of the people who purchased insurance this year with subsidies it should be interesting to see how the refunds are handled next year.Dennis T.

LETTER SUBMISSION POLICYEmail letters to letters@sun-herald.comChairman Derek Dunn-Rankin Publisher David Dunn-Rankin Executive Editor Chris Porter Editorial page editor Brian Gleason Editorial writer Stephen Baumann Editor John Hackworth V IEWPOINT Authority water is key to citys RO plant planOUR POSITION: Swiftmud water plant funding condition may force city to buy water from authority.Buying water from the Peace River Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority, an option a consultant deemed too costly, may wind up being the only way the City of Punta Gorda can secure Southwest Florida Water Management District funding for its proposed $28 million reverse osmosis water plant. Ofcials from Swiftmud, Punta Gorda, Charlotte County and the water authority will meet Aug. 8 in Sarasota to discuss the concept of building a pipeline to deliver water from the authoritys DeSoto County plant to the citys Shell Creek treatment plant for up to 10 years. The project, known as the Phase 1 pipeline, has been on the authority regional wish list for years, but gained favor when the Swiftmud board made matching funds for the citys RO plant contingent on an agreement to build the pipeline. Authority Executive Director Pat Lehman said he proposed a 10-year water-purchase agreement to City Manager Howard Kunik, who suggested a ve-year deal or less. Kunik said buying authority water was one of several options for the city. Lehman said a 10-year term would cover the entire $11 million to $14 million cost of building the six-mile pipeline from an existing pipeline at the DeSoto County line to the citys Shell Creek plant. That section has long been part of a planned regional loop system connecting Charlotte, DeSoto and Sarasota county members and customers of the authority. Punta Gorda has resisted buying water from the authority, preferring instead to pump and treat its own water. But the water from citys Shell Creek plant exceeds regulatory limits on total dissolved solids for several months during the year, forcing the city to obtain waivers from the state Department of Environmental Protection. With those waivers in hand, the City Council in 2010 voted to hold off building the RO plant. Last year, the council directed staff to move ahead with the project and seek up to $14 million from Swiftmud. The water district has held fast to a policy that favors funding for regional projects over those that dont connect to the loop system. After the water district on July 21 tied the funding of a well study needed to determine the feasibility of the RO plant to an agreement to build the Phase 1 pipeline, the city has little choice but to partner with the authority on the project. The Charlotte County Commission has indicated it will not pay for any part of the project, as it has guaranteed access to authority water it doesnt yet use. Yet, there are potential advantages for Charlotte County if the pipeline gets built. Of the 6 million gallons a day in excess capacity the county has, the authority would pay the county to give up its rights to about 2 million gallons a day to sell to the city, which could mix it with Shell Creek water to reduce the levels of total dissolved solids. While both a new pipeline and an RO plant would deliver far more water than justied by the citys customers, Kunik said quality not quantity is the issue. We understand the citys position. The question becomes, What is Swiftmuds strategy here? It is essentially forcing Punta Gorda to connect to the regional loop as a condition for RO plant funding that would subsequently let the city bypass the loop. It is in times like these the saying, Theres something in the water, has both literal and gurative meaning. rIfAX x `rA SX \ I xM err ', Sb\ I_fT! J Yirf i+IY '1 lilr:f7N 111--VcvcJutunal

The Sun /Friday, August 1, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINT Bipartisanship is dead. Thats the conventional wisdom, and theres a lot of evidence to support it. But theres evidence to the contrary as well. On two important issues, veterans health and job training, congressional Republicans and Democrats have, with little notice, reached constructive bipartisan agreements. These are both issues on which everyone agrees government should be involved. The country certainly owes something to veterans. And no ones proposing to eliminate job training programs altogether. But government is also not doing a good job on either. The Veterans Affairs Department scandals have revealed a culture of lying and incompetence that comes as little surprise to those who have been scrutinizing the agency for many years. And think-tank analysts both liberal and conservative have been concluding that government job training programs dont do much to prepare people for work or help them get jobs. The best job training, many experts agree, is a job. But job-training programs have appeal to voters, and they do probably help some not insignicant number of people move ahead. So theres an obvious need for legislation. And on these issues, as on so many others, Republicans and Democrats are in principled disagreement. Nevertheless, Senate Veterans Affairs Chairman Bernie Sanders and House Veterans Affairs Chairman Jeff Miller managed this week to come to an agreement. Sanders, a selfdescribed Socialist, did not get all the money he wanted. And he accepted a provision that at least some veterans could get funds for medical treatment at private nonVA facilities. Miller, who has been doing dogged oversight work that was not much noticed until last year when the Washington Examiners Mark Flatten began highlighting it, made concessions as well. The bill includes $5 billion for hiring more medical professionals and $1.7 billion for new VA facilities more than many House Republicans might like. The Republicancontrolled House over whelmingly approved the bill Wednesday on a 420-5 vote, and the Democratic-majority Senate is expected to pass it quickly as well. Both houses have already passed, the House by 415-6 and the Senate by 95-3, signicant legislation reauthorizing and consolidating government job-training programs. It eliminates 15 existing programs, consolidates others, gives states more exibility and attempts to orient job training programs to in-demand skills. This represents some hard work at the subcommittee and committee level, notably by House Education and the Workforce Chairman John Kline and ranking Democrat George Miller. Miller, who is retiring from Congress this year, also helped to fashion the 2001 No Child Left Behind Act, working with a committee chairman named John Boehner. Both have shown that you can be strong partisans and still successfully negotiate bipartisan agreements. I doubt that these are perfect pieces of legislation, and I suspect that none of their lead sponsors would claim they are. Theres always a danger that bipartisan agreements turn out to be mush and that negotiators put aside bolder reforms that would produce better results. But they probably represent at least incremental progress toward better policy. And they refute the conventional wisdom that bipartisanship is dead, even in this politically polarized Congress. What they also share in common is that the Obama White House seems to have had little or no involvement. Members of Congress and their staffs were left to do the hard work of analysis and negotiation themselves. When the Obama administration does get involved, this kind of bipartisan compromise doesnt seem to happen. Second-term presidencies are ordinarily a time when the stars are in alignment for bipartisan reforms. Examples include the 1986 tax law and the 1997 Medicare reforms. But not in Barack Obamas second-term presidency. The Obama administration has ignored House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camps tax rewrite, which would cut rates and eliminate many preferences. When Camp was negotiating with Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus, Obama removed the latter by appointing him ambassador to China. Baucus successor Ron Wyden is a skilled bipartisan legislator, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and the Obama White House have given him little running room. Even on the one tax issue, which Obama recognized as reformworthy cutting the U.S.s highest-inthe-developed world corporate income tax the administration has eschewed bipartisan discussion. Instead its trying to make a campaign issue with a bill somehow barring companies from moving their corporate domiciles to lower-tax nations. Sort of like ordering water not to ow downhill. Some people like to denounce Congress for partisan legislative gridlock. But the real problem is at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue. Michael Barone is a senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner. Readers can reach him via www. washingtonexaminer. com.Bipartisanship is alive and well Michael Barone In recent decisions, the conservative majority on the Supreme Court has made clear its view that corporations are people, with all the attendant rights. They are entitled to free speech, which in their case means spending lots of money to bend the political process to their ends. They are entitled to religious beliefs, including those that mean denying benets to their workers. Up next, the right to bear arms? There is, however, one big difference between corporate persons and the likes of you and me: On current trends, were heading toward a world in which only the human people pay taxes. Were not quite there yet: The federal government still gets a tenth of its revenue from corporate prots taxation. But it used to get a lot more a third of revenue came from prots taxes in the early 1950s, a quarter or more well into the 1960s. Part of the decline since then reects a fall in the tax rate, but mainly it reects ever-more-aggressive corporate tax avoidance avoidance that politicians have done little to prevent. Which brings us to the tax-avoidance strategy du jour: inversion. This refers to a legal maneuver in which a company declares that its U.S. operations are owned by its foreign subsidiary, not the other way around, and uses this role reversal to shift reported prots out of American jurisdiction to someplace with a lower tax rate. The most important thing to understand about inversion is that it does not in any meaningful sense involve American business moving overseas. Consider the case of Walgreen Co., the giant drugstore chain that, according to multiple reports, is on the verge of making itself legally Swiss. If the plan goes through, nothing about the business will change; your local pharmacy wont close and reopen in Zurich. It will be a purely paper transaction but it will deprive the U.S. government of several billion dollars in revenue that you, the taxpayer, will have to make up one way or another. Does this mean President Barack Obama is wrong to describe companies engaging in inversion as corporate deserters? Not really theyre shirking their civic duty, and it doesnt matter whether they literally move abroad or not. But apologists for inversion, who tend to claim that high taxes are driving businesses out of America, are indeed talking nonsense. These businesses arent moving production or jobs overseas and theyre still earning their prots right here in the USA. All theyre doing is dodging taxes on those prots. And Congress could crack down on this tax dodge its already illegal for a company to claim that its legal domicile is someplace where it has little real business, and tightening the criteria for declaring a company non-American could block many of the inversions now taking place. So is there any reason not to stop this gratuitous loss of revenue? No. Opponents of a crackdown on inversion typically argue that instead of closing loopholes we should reform the whole system by which we tax prots, and maybe stop taxing prots altogether. They also tend to argue that taxing corporate prots hurts investment and job creation. But these are very bad arguments against ending the practice of inversion. First of all, there are some good reasons to tax prots. In general, U.S. taxes favor unearned income from capital over earned income from wages; the corporate tax helps redress this imbalance. We could, in principle, maintain taxes on unearned income if we offset cuts in corporate taxes with substantially higher tax rates on income from capital gains and dividends but this would be an imperfect x, and in any case, given the state of our politics, this just isnt going to happen. Furthermore, ending prots taxation would greatly increase the power of corporate executives. Is this really something we want to do? As for reforming the system: Yes, that would be a good idea. But the case for eventual reform basically has nothing to do with the case for closing the inversion loophole right now. After all, there are big debates about the shape of reform, debates that would take years to resolve even if we didnt have a Republican Party that reliably opposes anything the president proposes, even if it was something Republicans were for just a few years ago. Why let corporations avoid paying their fair share for years, while we wait for the logjam to break? Finally, none of this has anything to do with Supreme Court: Corporate artful dodgers Paul Krugman KRUGMAN | 10Forty years after the Watergate scandal forced President Richard Nixon to resign or face certain impeachment and conviction, Washingtons increasing partisanship too often leads to politicians threatening to go there. The consensus in 1974 was that the House Judiciary Committees careful, bipartisan proceedings set so high a standard for the future that presidential impeachment efforts would remain extremely rare. Instead, the Nixon impeachment has led to more frequent legal threats to presidents, often over policy disagreements, turning impeachment into a political football where one partys words prompt the other to use them to raise campaign funds. Last Sunday, the third-ranking House Republican, Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, refused three times to rule out impeaching President Barack Obama for using executive authority to overcome congressional obstruction. Weve made it clear were going to put options on the table to allow the House to take legal action against the president when he over-reaches his authority, Scalise said on Fox News Sunday, charging that the White House wants to talk about impeachment to raise campaign funds. Only six of 36 presidents before Nixon faced impeachment charges, serious and some spurious, according to Wikipedia research. The only case that went to trial charged President Andrew Johnson with numerous misdeeds, notably violating a questionable law restricting his appointment authority. He was acquitted in 1868 by one vote. But of the seven post-Nixon presidents, only Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter have not faced some sort of impeachment threat. In 1998, Bill Clinton became the second president ever impeached for lying about his affair with Monica Lewinsky, but he too was acquitted. Half of todays 318 million Americans were not born in 1974, so many may not realize how Nixons misbehavior differed from those of others when it comes to the Constitutions standard of high crimes Threats of impeachment all too common Carl Leubsdorf LEUBSDORF | 10 50457700 Monday Friday 10 a.m. 6 p.m.; Saturday 10:30 4 p.m. Not affiliated with Rolex W ESTCHESTER G OLD & D IAMONDS 4200-F TAMIAMI TRAIL, PORT CHARLOTTE (BEHIND ABC LIQUORS) 625-0666 Rolex Watches Service & Repairs Large Selection of Diamond Bezels & Dials 3191 Harbor Blvd. Suite D Port Charlotte, FL 33952 50468564 NEW DOCTOR IN TOWN Tetyana Metyk, M.D. Internal Medicine Diabetes High Blood Pressure High Cholesterol Thyroid Problems Arthritis Osteoporosis Memory Loss Cardiac Disease Prostate 941-613-1919 50468399 JAMES W.

Our Town Page 10 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, August 1, 2014 VIEWPOINT investment and job creation. If and when Walgreen Co., changes its citizenship, it will get to keep more of its prots but it will have no incentive to invest those extra prots in its U.S. operations. So this should be easy. By all means lets have a debate about how and how much to tax prots. Meanwhile, however, lets close this outrageous loophole. Paul Krugman is a columnist for The New York Times. He can be reached via www.newyorktimes. com.KRUGMANFROM PAGE 9and misdemeanors. Nixon faced impeachment and conviction for secretly misusing the CIA and the FBI in a futile effort to head off investigation of his efforts to protect the men hired by his campaign ofcials to break into and wiretap Democratic Party headquarters. The breakin was one of several surreptitious acts aimed at undercutting the 1972 Democratic campaign. Nixon resigned after top Republicans the partys Senate and House leaders and Arizona Sen. Barry Goldwater told him he no longer had the votes to survive. As an Associated Press reporter covering the Senate, I was told the same thing a few days earlier in an off-the-record conversation with a senior Senate Democrat. Since Nixons time, virtually every president has faced trivial or serious impeachment threats. Alleged misdeeds included lying under oath about a sexual relationship (Clinton), selling arms to Iran in for freeing American hostages (Ronald Reagan), committing the nation to an unwinnable, unnecessary war (George W. Bush) and issuing executive orders implementing measures Congress refused to consider (Obama). Congressional leaders have sometimes kept more partisan members from launching actual impeachment proceedings. Democrats stopped Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., the Judiciary Committee chairman, from moving against Bush for starting the war against Iraq; the House later buried an impeachment move by Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio. Current House Speaker John Boehner is pursuing a lawsuit against Obama as an alternative to impeachment, while denouncing Democrats for using GOP impeachment threats to raise campaign funds. In a New York Times book review Monday of former Nixon aide John Deans new Watergate history, presidential historian Robert Dallek cited the difference between Nixons offenses and improper acts of other presidents. These offenses were principally about money changing hands or clandestine policies lacking legal sanction or popular support, he wrote. By contrast, Watergate was an attempt to shape a presidential election by other than constitutional means, violating the most sacred of American institutions going back to the start of the republic: the elevation of someone to the presidency by popular choice.

In second grade, my report card said I couldnt take criticism, and I remember being devastated by that, he said. So its easy to believe the 60-year-old general manager of the Metropolitan Opera when he says that this is the most stressful week of his life, with his career and the Mets future at stake. Hurtling toward a lockout, Gelb sees a fresh vitriolic insult from a union negotiator every time he checks the news on his phone. And with the planned production of John Adams The Death of Klinghoffer, Gelb is also attracting protesters and even some death threats. They come by email the convenient modern delivery system for death threats, he said, taking a break from marathon negotiations to have a pork chop dinner at a Lincoln Center restaurant. Gelb refused to cancel the production. But after speaking with Jewish leaders, including Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League, who hasnt seen the opera but worried it could fuel anti-Semitism abroad, he called off the Live in HD broadcast. I had no idea four years ago when I set this up that it would suddenly be juxtaposed with the events in the Middle East, he said, denying that he un-Solomonically split the baby of artistic freedom. I think what I did was protect the baby. I never expected to get any closer to the Met than reading about opera in Edith Whartons Belle Epoch, club boxes lled with these chosen specimens of old New York gentility. But Gelbs late father, Arthur, was my editor and mentor at The New York Times. And when Peter threw open the doors to the musty, fusty institution an isolated island, disconnected from the mainland, he called it trying to lure younger patrons and beaming the hugely successful Live in HD productions around the world, I ventured into the Met and was instantly enchanted. So it makes me sad, seeing the magical Met family tear itself apart. Gelb, a Yale dropout who worked as a teenage usher at the Met and an ofce boy for the impresario Sol Hurok, comes across as smooth, tailored and cerebral. But he admits hes made mistakes and tried to develop a tougher skin. Now, he says, he tries to gure out if hes hurt and right, or hurt and wrong. You know, Im a neurotic Jew, he said. Im constantly thinking did I screw this thing up or what could I have done differently or better. Criticized by Met workers for having too many productions, he cut back for the last season and for the next from seven to six. He has also toned down the hype. The fortissimo battle between Met management and workers full of acrimony, jealousy and demonizing seems like opera. But Gelb says its more like lurid melodrama or chaos. The unions have per sonalized the ght, sniping at Gelb and expensive productions that have not panned out, while Gelb is sticking to the bottom line of unsustainable labor costs. His job has been compared to that of a lion tamer, but now he says, with a rueful smile, Im the lion tamer who may be eaten. But I have to not inch. As one union leader told me years ago, the employees only believe the employers telling the truth when he goes out of business. The workers say he needs to take some of his grandiosity out of grand opera. He says they have gold leaf syndrome. Theyre surrounded by too much gold leaf, Gelb says of the 15 unions from wigs and makeup to a union consisting of one house painter. Its delusional. Economically, theyve been calling the shots for decades. And I have to break that up for the Met to survive. We have to go big, but do it in a way thats economically small. Even in the Met, you can see the gold leafs chipping off the ceiling. Doubtless, the Met workers have Nibelungen fatigue. The two central symbols of their argument that Gelb is a spendthrift are the 45-ton machine of movable planks in a $19 million Ring production (a million had to be spent simply reinforcing the stage) and the $169,000 poppy eld in Prince Igor. Were being told that our livelihoods and our lives are not as important as the machine and the poppies, said Jessica Phillips Rieske, a clarinetist and negotiator for the orchestra union who objects to Gelb presenting himself as the savior of a dinosaur art form. Were saying, lets all trim our belts. Gelb says he regrets that the Ring machine was creaky but isnt sorry about pushing the envelope, and he says he was nave about understanding the risk of replacing Zefrellis Tosca. Anthony Tommasini, The Times chief classical music critic, says there have been mistakes on both sides. The union heads have made Gelb seem so incompetent, even artistically, that if the talks are resolved, then what is the public to think? Great, another season courtesy of that know-nothing, he said. Gelb has made some bad calls, especially by giving us Robert Lepages Ring, which is a show about a set. But he has had some milestone productions as well, most recently the new Falstaff and the revelatory Prince Igor. The union heads have to stop complaining about silk poppy elds. Thats not the cause of the Mets budget woes. As the clock ticks down, Im rooting for Valhalla, not Gtterdmmerung. Maureen Dowd is a New York Times columnist. Readers may reach her via www.newyorktimes.com.A night at the Opera? Maureen Dowd When Barack Obama won the White House in 2008, he did so in an unusual way for a Democrat: As the candidate of the rich. He raised more in large-dollar donations than any of his rivals and raked in more cash from Wall Street than John McCain. In November, he won the upper class votes: By 52 percent to 46 per cent, according to exit polls, Americans making more than $200,000 cast their ballots for Obama. There were several reasons for this shift, some specic to 2008 (elite exhaustion with the Bush presidency, the power of Obamamania) and some reecting deeper trends: The Republican Partys post-1970s gains among white working-class voters; the Democratic Partys post-1980s attempts to shed its anti-business reputation; the increasing cultural liberalism of the afuent; and the rise of the so-called liberal rich. In the wake of Obamas victory, these trends confronted Republicans with an interesting dilemma: Should they seek to actively win back the Aspen-Greenwich vote, or embrace their increasingly populist coalition and try to rebuild from the middle out? Across the rst Obama term, they mostly tried the rst approach. There was an incredibly strong populist mood on the right hence the Tea Partys anti-Washington fervor, the rumblings against Wall Street from gures like Glenn Beck. But the populists marched into blind alleys on policy and rallied round never-gonna-happen standard bearers, while the mainstream of the party mostly stuck to a more generic script job creators good, class warfare bad, you built that and now the 47 percent are living off your hard work Sure enough, in 2012, Mitt Romney won back the over-$200,000 vote, mostly by regaining ground in the suburbs around New York City. But what he didnt win was the actual election, mostly because voters outside Greenwich and New Canaan decided that a GOP obsessed with heroic entrepreneurs didnt have their interests close to heart. So haltingly at rst, and then with increasing seriousness, Republicans began to look for a differ ent path back to power one tailored to the partys growing dependence on working-class votes, and one designed to deliver populist substance as well as style. Thus far they have circled around two broad approaches. One, dubbed reform conservatism, seeks to make the welfare state and tax code more friendly to work and child-rearing and upward mobility through larger wage subsidies, bigger child tax credits, and a substantial clearing-out of the insider-friendly subsidies and tax breaks and regulations that drive up costs in health care, real estate, energy and higher education. The other, libertarian populism, is even more zealous about attacking rent-seeking and crony capitalism, while also looking for other places criminal justice reform, notably where a libertarian approach to public policy might benet people lower on the economic ladder. These two approaches substantially overlap (with the main difference being a skepticism among the libertarians about targeting tax cuts and subsidies specically to parents and the poor). And together, they provide the foundation on which a number of prominent Republicans Mike Lee, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul have built policy proposals over the last year. Now that list includes Paul Ryan, who last week released a blueprint that folds together many of the strongest reformist and libertarian ideas: Theres a larger earned-income tax credit, proposed cuts to corporate welfare, a call for sentencing reform for nonviolent offenses, a critique of regressive regulations like licensing requirements, and much more. This kind of agenda has a long way to go before we can call it the ofcial Republican program. It could face opposition in 2016 from donors who were pretty happy with the Romney approach, and from activists who regard anything save deep austerity as a sellout to the left. But if the Republican Party fully embraces the ideas its youngergeneration leaders are pursuing, the Democrats could suddenly nd themselves in a difcult spot. Liberals can theoretically outbid a limited-government populism, yes but given the scal picture, they would need to raise taxes signicantly to do so, alienating their own donors, the middle class or both. And the immediate liberal critique of Ryans new plan that its too paternalistic, too focused on pushing welfare recipients to work harkened back to debates that the Democratic Party used to lose. Meanwhile, Obama-era liberalism has grown dangerously comfortable with big business-big government partner ships. Its a bad sign when even the tribune of left-wing populism, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, feels obliged to defend, against libertarian populist attacks, an icon of crony capitalism like the Export-Import Bank. So theres a scenario still unlikely, but much more plausible than a year ago in which the pattern of 2012 could be reversed: A deepening association with big money and big business could suddenly become an albatross for Democrats, and the Republicans could nally and deservedly shake their identity as a party that cares only about the rich.

The Sun /Friday, August 1, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 11 Englewood will soon have a new pizzeria Marcos Pizza. Owners Terry and Diane Burkholder expect to open their new spot sometime between the end of August and the beginning of September. The pizza is better because it is real, Terry Burkholder said. Everything is made from scratch daily never frozen, including our dough. The Burkholders are not new to the Marcos brand. They now own two other locations, one in South Sarasota, the other in Venice. They chose Englewood for their third because, Burkholder noted, It is a nice area with great potential. The pizzeria will be located on McCall Road in the stand-alone building formerly occupied by Arbys and most recently by a seafood restaurant. The location is a good one and we are excited about offering our pizza to the community, Burkholder said. The restaurant will also offer beer and wine, but is not trying to be a local pub. Instead, Burkholder emphasized the family-friendly nature of the Marcos brand. We will have a family and friends night from time to time, so that people will be able to come in a try our pizza. Marcos corporate website states that the company is headquartered in Toledo, Ohio. Founded by native Italian Pasquale Giammarco, Marcos Pizza is committed to making authentic Italian pizza with fresh ingredients. The rst Marcos Pizza store opened 1978. There are now about 500 franchises throughout the country, according to Scott Decker, the area representative for Authentic Pizza Development Group, based in Tampa which has the franchise rights for an area running from Orlando to Naples. We now have 27 stores in our region and expect to add six more this year and another six next year, he said. Burkholder said that his new location will employ roughly 20 employees, eight to 10 of whom will be full-time.Marcos Pizza is coming to EnglewoodBy KENNETH P.

NORTH PORT City commissioners voted 4-1 Monday night for the city to retain its police dispatch rather than consolidate it with Sarasota County, with Cheryl Cook dissenting. Consolidating North Ports dispatch would save money, as Sarasota County would take on many of the costs associated with dispatch operations. My recommendation is to retain the current dispatch service, Police Chief Kevin Vespia said, citing the benefit of having control over the service and a lack of certainty over the impacts of consolidation. This isnt about one agency doing better than the other; its about whether you want it locally, he said. If the city were to consolidate, Vespia recommended the city create a 24/7 position for a community service officer a citizen (as opposed to a sworn officer) that would perform clerical, administrative and paraprofessional work. By choosing consolidation with Vespias recommended CSO position, the city could save anywhere from $417,000 to $569,000 per year, though it would incur a one-time cost of $295,000 to build the technology interface. The term of the consolidation agreement would be five years. The NPPD currently pays $858,000 per year to run its telecommunications services, and is facing a one-time cost of $240,000 (which it would avoid if the city consolidated the dispatch) to replace radio consoles in the communication center. The city of Venice police dispatch underwent consolidation April 30, and 911 emergency dispatch operations for the city now are handled by the Sarasota County Sheriffs Office. The city of Sarasota Police Department consolidated its dispatch services with the county in 1996. Cook was in favor of the plan and moved to consolidate the dispatch service. Im extremely concerned that as the city continues to expand, we taxpayers in the city of North Port are going to be exclusively responsible for paying for the expansion of this department. And were going to continue to pay for the expansion of all the other departments (in) the county, so were going to be hit twice if we dont consolidate, she said. Mayor Jim Blucher, though he voted against Cooks motion, said the savings aspect of consolidation appealed to him because money saved could be reinvested to expand the NPPD. Those (savings) are real dollars. And Im not looking at that as taxpayer savings, Im looking at those dollars as the future of our police department, he said. We have to expand even further. Our drug enforcement we need more of that; were going to have to bring in our own SWAT as we grow. Im looking at that as those dollars there actually staying in the department. Commissioner Rhonda DiFranco, a retired Sarasota County Sheriffs sergeant, was adamant the dispatch channel would have too many voices on it if the service was consolidated. Youre going to have officers walking over other officers that happened to me in the county, DiFranco said. Now add Venice and North Port on top of that. I dont know where your officers are going to be able to get the air space to be able to talk. Commissioner Linda Yates also spoke in favor of retaining local control over the dispatch. The value of the control far outweighs the potential for savings, she said. Blucher spoke once again, voicing his overall support for local control, despite his interest in the savings consolidation would bring. We need to support our chief, he said, gesturing toward Vespia and gaveling the applause that followed. But this is going to cost us money in the future, and well have to find a way to pay for it, he said. Cooks motion failed 1-4, causing Blucher to gavel applause for the second time in the course of the meeting. The commission then voted 4-1 to tell the county North Port does not wish to participate in consolidation.Email: iross@sun-herald.comNorth Port dispatch consolidation over and outBy IAN ROSSSTAFF WRITER LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS T h e L a t e s t i n M E D I C A L N E W S The Latest in MEDICAL NEW S Read all about it in FEELING FI T Every Sunday in the r1-800-345-5273 fnt A+ SchoolUNIFORMS TAX FREE DAYS AUGUST 1-3!PAY NO SALES TAX ON STATE-APPROVED ITEMS.

Our Town Page 12 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, August 1, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE The FHP homicide investigator notes in his arrest report that there were large pools of blood on the roadway in front of the Oldsmobile, and blood on the front of the vehicle. The driver of the pickup Alexander Velez, 34, of Punta Gorda was taken to Bayfront Health Punta Gorda with minor injuries. He was released Friday, but could not be reached for comment. Bests son, Cayden, also received minor injuries, but he was taken to All Childrens Hospital in St. Petersburg. Best was treated for minor injuries at Bayfront Health Port Charlotte before being arrested early Friday. He was held at the Charlotte County Jail with out bond on three counts of DUI with damage to property or a person, and one count each of DUI causing serious injury and DUI manslaughter. He declined the services of a public defender during his rst appearance before a judge Thursday morning, and court records show he had not retained his own attorney by that afternoon. Best, of the 2400 block of Elkcam Boulevard, allegedly failed three eld-sobriety tests in the hospitals parking lot. When Best gave a breath test at the jail, he blew a 0.214 and a 0.212. Floridas legal limit is 0.08. The report did not state where Best was coming from or where he was heading.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comDRUNKENFROM PAGE 1 Christopher Best, who had his 6-year-old son with him, allegedly was intoxicated when he crashed Wednesday night. SUN PHOTOS BY PETER ARATARIAccording to the Florida Highway Patrol, Christopher failed to observe a ashing arrow warning trac to get over a lane because there were workers present. The crash pinned the two workmen against the pickup that had the sign on it. the kids is unfortunate, but they dont belong here thrown on our streets, said District 4 Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch, who then assured, At this point in time, there is no plan to start depositing people in Charlotte County. District 2 Commissioner Chris Constance also denounced the flood of immigrants. I think its very important that we enforce the laws already in place, he said. We were not set up to be a child care center for the rest of the world. Closer to home, some crowd members called for Charlotte to be more proactive with code-enforcement issues, to improve the countys image. Ivankovic and Schaff said enforcement and consistency in applying existing standards would help to resolve the situation. Stoltzfus latched onto the issue as one of his own. One of my priorities is doing things that dont cost a lot of money to make the county look nicer, Stoltzfus said. Constance agreed that the county needs to present a better face. We really have to do more to sharpen the look of U.S. 41, he said. Im in favor of a more proactive approach, but that takes dollars. Deutsch added that residents will see a face-lift in the next couple of years, with improvements planned at the north side of the U.S. 41 bridges, and along Kings Highway and U.S. 41. The proposed extension of the 1 percent sales tax elicited different responses from the candidates. Stoltzfus characterized the sales-tax debate as a rushed process, while Schaff opposes it. If we cant afford it, we dont do it, Schaff said. The discourse then focused on another volatile subject Murdock Village. The challengers charged that seated commissioners have been unable to resolve the financial burden created when the county, in 2004, borrowed $93 million to take control of a 2-squaremile grid of 98 empty streets near State Road 776 and U.S. 41. We need to sell the darn thing and take the loss, Schaff said. Distinguishing himself as the only one of the three District 4 candidates who works in the private sector, Ivankovic emphasized his business sense in running an insurance company. Ivankovic said he doesnt spend money he doesnt have. The county is headed toward bankruptcy, Ivankovic said. Stoltzfus explained that, in addition to Murdock Village, the county is looking at another boondoggle with the mandatory sewer project in the East and West Spring Lake area of Port Charlotte. Were paying $120 million for something that we dont know for sure is absolutely necessary, he said. I do believe the county is on the fast track to some type of nancial disaster. Not surprisingly, the incumbents painted the countys nancial picture in a more optimistic hue. Constance noted that the countys debt obligation was $16,000 a day when he took office four years ago, and is now $6,000 a day. Despite the lingering recession, he said economic progress is being made on all fronts. We have weathered a very down economy and kept our budget flat, he said. I think the countys financial position is sound. Deutsch added: I think we have a very bright future.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comCOUNTYFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY GARY ROBERTSDuring Wednesday evenings candidates debate for a pair of Charlotte County Commission seats, District 4 challenger David Ivankovic addresses the crowd. Also pictured are, from left, Tony Biell, moderator and Curmudgeon Club president; incumbent District 2 Commissioner Chris Constance; District 2 challenger Paula Scha; District 4 hopeful Jason Stoltzfus; and incumbent District 4 Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch. The majority of calls we take are traumatic, she said. One of the biggest challenges is the space constraint (in the helicopter), but you learn how to get things done. And we dont have much time to work. A flight from (Punta Gorda) to Lee Memorial Hospital (in Fort Myers) is only about 15 minutes. Duppenthaler, 42, has been a flight nurse for seven years. Early in her career, she responded to a car crash that killed two teenagers. She was invited to a memorial service by one of the victims families, and learned the victims organs had been donated. Duppenthaler has learned to appreciate the silver linings. That showed me that things can come full circle, she said. Even though one person died, now five more might live. There are four TGH Aeromed helicopters, stationed in Tampa, Sebring, Bartow and Punta Gorda. Services are offered in 23 surrounding counties. There were 1,481 patients flights in 2013. The most recent Aeromed 5 flight was to a fatal car crash Wednesday night, just north of the U.S. 41 bridges in Charlotte Harbor. Its a huge responsibility to offer this service, just because of the inherent danger that comes with using an aircraft, Aeromed nurse manager John Scott said. But we put in the time and dedication to make this a good, quality service. The helicopter based in Punta Gorda is a fully loaded Bell 407. The Aeromed 5 crew consists of four pilots, four nurses and four paramedics. One of each is taken on each flight. Staff works 24 hours, then has 72 hours off. All crew members have training in various forms of life support, and must have obtained other specialized qualifications and certifications. Patients and their families, like the Larsons from Naples, are grateful for the professionalism. Terry Larson, 54, was trimming weeds near his house on July 13 when his heart stopped. Aeromed 5 flew in, but the crew determined the weather was too dangerous to fly. The staff including Duppenthaler worked to save Larson until a ground crew arrived to transport him to Tampa General. He survived his medical issue and was on hand at Thursdays open house with his daughter, Nicole, and other family members. Theyve kept in touch with us through this whole process, said Nicole, 22. She added that a few days after the incident, while her father was still at TGH, Duppenthaler was there to bring in another patient. She stopped in to check on my dad, Nicole said. Thats the kind of care you get.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comRESCUEFROM PAGE 1 TGH Aeromed nurse manager John Scott discusses the Bell 407 helicopter with Charlotte County Commission Chairman Ken Doherty.

Though the U.S. unemployment rate has plunged since the start of last year to a ve-year low of 6.1 percent, the Gallup Organization has found that consumers view of the economy is the glummest its been in seven months. The July jobs report being released Friday will likely show a sixth straight month of healthy 200,000-plus gains. Yet for millions of people like Douglas Hunter, not much has changed. Hunter earned $14 an hour cleaning oil drums before the Great Recession seized the economy and his job was axed. At 53, Hunter now works three days a week for $9.25 an hour, mopping oors and xing fryers at two McDonalds restaurants in Chicago. If the economy is getting better, Im not sure for whom, he said. It certainly hasnt trickled down to me. The Gallup Organization has found that consumers view of the economy is the glummest its been in seven months. As the economic recovery enters its sixth year, a number of factors help explain why many Americans dont feel better off: Income hasnt rebounded. Millions are working Not quite recoveredBy JOSH BOAK and CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABERAP ECONOMICS WRITERSAs US job market strengthens, many dont feel itMARKET | 4 IMMOKALEE Since Floridas frontier days when cattlemen drove their herds through the states vast elds and forests, ranchers and native panthers have been natural enemies. The ranchers seek to nurture and protect their calves, while the panthers see them as prey. Human development won the battle, driving the large, tawny cats to the brink of extinction before successful efforts to restore them began decades ago. But with Floridas panther population recovering, some ranchers complain the protected 6to 7-foot-long predators are once again killing their calves. Now, university research supports that claim, at least in one part of southwest Florida. A University of Florida researcher hired by federal wildlife ofcials has found that panthers are killing calves in an area where the predatory felines are thriving. Her study, the rst to quantify the kills and losses, was given to The Associated Press exclusively. The research marks the rst step toward the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service considering a program that would pay ranchers for preserving acres of panther habitat, instead of undertaking the impossible task of verifying every kill. Ranchers will tell you that they suspected panthers were killing their calves, although no one knows how many theyre losing, said Caitlin Jacobs, the university researcher who staked out a ranch for the better part of two years. Its hard to nd the calves when panthers kill they drag the prey into the forest and cover it with brush to hide them from scavengers. Its estimated that at one time, more than 1,300 panthers roamed Florida before their numbers dwindled at one point in the 1800s, the states government offered $5 for panther scalps.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip Nearly a month into Israels erce assault on Hamas in Gaza, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is facing mounting domestic pressure to seek war crimes charges against Israel at the International Criminal Court. He has hesitated in the past because such a move would instantly put the Palestinians on a risky collision course with Israel. But with about 1,400 Palestinians killed in Gaza, according to health ofcials, Abbas has signaled he might move ahead cautiously.US, UN announce deal on Gaza cease-fireAbbas seeks broad support for war crimes chargesBy IAN DEITCH and IBRAHIM BARZAKASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERSBy KARIN LAUB and JOHN HEILPRINASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERSCEASE-FIRE | 4 CRIMES | 4 AP PHOTODisplaced Palestinian Hajar Muharram, 5, sits in a classroom where her family of seven now live, at a U.N. school, in Beit Lahiya, northern Gaza Strip, Thursday.

Page 2 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, August 1, 2014 NATIONAL NEWS | NATIONAL NEWS BRIEFSCongress races to finish VA, highway billsWASHINGTON (AP) Congress ran full-tilt into election-year gridlock over immigration Thursday and staggered toward a ve-week summer break after failing to agree on legislation to cope with the inux of young immigrants ocking illegally to the United States. Faring far better, a bipartisan, $16 billion measure to clean up after a scandal at the Department of Veterans Affairs was sent to President Barack Obama for his signature on a Senate vote of 91-3. The House approved the measure on a vote of 420-5 on Wednesday. A second compromise was close behind, this one to prevent a cutoff in highway construction aid. With lawmakers eager to adjourn, there were late negotiations aimed at clearing legislation to provide Israel with $225 million for its Iron Dome missile defense system. A new outburst of harsh partisan rhetoric between leading ofcials in both parties served as yet another reminder that after 18 months in ofce, the current Congress has little to show for its efforts apart from abysmally low public approval ratings.Journal Communications, Scripps Co. announce dealNEW YORK (AP) Journal Communications Inc. of Milwaukee and E.W. Scripps Co. of Cincinnati have agreed to combine their broadcasting operations while spinning off newspaper holdings into a separate public entity. The deal announced late Wednesday is the latest move by media companies to separate sluggish newspaper operations from more protable broadcast units, as the industry adapts to consumers increasing taste for digital content. The trend started with Belo Corp., which in 2008, spun off its newspapers including The Dallas Morning News. More recently, The Tribune Co. said it is splitting its print business, including the Los Angeles Times, and its TV channels. News Corp. and Time Warner Inc. have also split into separate publishing and entertainment companies.US warns against traveling to Ebola-hit countriesNEW YORK (AP) U.S. health ofcials on Thursday warned Americans not to travel to the three West African countries hit by an outbreak of Ebola. The travel advisory applies to nonessential travel to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, where the deadly disease has killed more than 700 people this year. The bottom line is Ebola is worsening in West Africa, said Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who announced the travel warning. He called Ebola a tragic, dreadful and merciless virus. The purpose of the travel warning is to not only protect U.S. travelers, but limit their use of overburdened clinics and hospitals for injuries or other illnesses, he said.AAA: US pump prices set for biggest July drop in 6 yearsNEW YORK (Bloomberg) Retail gasoline prices are poised to cap the biggest July decline in six years as U.S. reneries process the most oil on record, AAA says. The cheapest gasoline Thursday was in South Carolina, where drivers paid an average of $3.25. The highest price was in the continental United States were in California at $3.98. The decline is helping consumers during the peak-demand summer months, when Americans take the most vacations, and comes as data indicate the U.S. economy is improving. Gross domestic product rose at a 4 per cent annualized rate in the second quarter after shrinking 2.1 percent from January through March, Commerce Department gures showed Wednesday. Regular gasoline has dropped 15.5 cents, or 4.2 percent, to $3.517 a gallon this month, according to Heathrow, Florida-based AAA, the nations largest motoring club. Its very unusual to see gas prices fall at this time of year, Michael Green, a spokesman for the Heathrow, Floridabased automobile club AAA, said by telephone from Washington.Immigration courts speed up childrens casesLOS ANGELES (AP) Immigration courts are speeding up hearings for the tens of thousands of Central American children caught on the U.S. border after criticism that the backlogged system is letting immigrants stay in the country for years while waiting for their cases to be heard. There are 375,000 cases before the immigration courts, and many immigrants wait months or years for a hearing. Instead of bumping children to the back of that long line, the courts are now giving each child an initial court hearing within three weeks, according to the Justice Departments Executive Ofce for Immigration Review. A spokeswoman for the courts said no data was immediately available on how many childrens hearings had been set under the new plan.Twitter: Govt. requests for user data increasedNEW YORK (AP) Twitter said government requests for user data grew sharply in the past six months as more countries asked for a greater amount of information about users. More than half of the requests came from the United States, as has been the case since Twitter began issuing its transparency report in 2012. Typically, the requests are part of criminal investigations. To obtain non-public information about users such as email addresses law enforcement agencies have to get a subpoena or court order. Requests for the contents of communi cations such as direct messages or non-public tweets require a search warrant. The report does not include national security requests because Twitter, along with other Internet companies, has been prohibited from disclosing information on such requests. WASHINGTON (AP) Companies overseeing millions of mortgage loans appear to be skirting new federal regulations and legal settlements intended to stop them proteering at the expense of troubled homeowners. They are selling or have sold nearly nonexistent insurance agencies in some cases with no ofces, no websites and only a single registered agent in multimillion dollar deals, as new rules prohibit them from collecting commissions on insurance they force homeowners to buy. The deals illustrate how regulators are still wrestling with messy banking practices more than six years after the housing markets collapse. They also mean that newly sold insurance agencies have an incentive to compel struggling homeowners to buy costly policies, to justify the high sales prices commanded when the insurance agencies were sold. The deals involve force-placed insurance, a type of backup property insurance meant to protect mortgage investors stake in uninsured properties. Standard mortgages require borrowers to maintain homeowners insurance and authorize the loans servicer to buy coverage when borrowers dont. If the borrowers dont pay for the new insurance, servicers foreclose on their properties and stick the bill to mortgage investors. Even before the housing boom, mortgage servicers found ways to prot from buying insur ance with other peoples money. Insurance carriers paid banks including JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo and Citigroup to buy policies at inated prices, according to an investigation by New Yorks Department of Financial Services. To hide this kickback culture, as New York regulators described it, some servicers created virtual insurance agencies and disguised illicit payments as commissions. New rules by the Federal Housing Finance Agency, investigations by state regulators and class-action settlements now prohibit servicers from collecting commissions on such insurance policies, and the countrys biggest brand-name banks have renounced the practice. But some of the largest subprime mortgage servicers in the country companies that handle the troubled loans most likely to be subject to the insurance policies appear to skirt those rules or have already made protable business arrangements that comply with them. Because people tend to stop paying insurance when theyre struggling to keep up with their mortgage, the collapse of the housing market after 2007 turned the practice into a multibillion dollar industry. In many ways, forceplaced insurances rise reected the behavior that fed the housing bubble: After proting from putting borrowers in homes they couldnt afford, mortgage companies were proting from inated insurance bills they assigned to homeowners at risk of foreclosure.$100 million for firm without offices, 1 agent? MADISON, Wis. (AP) The ght over Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walkers signature policy achievement, a law effectively ending collective bargaining for most public employees, ended Thursday with the state Supreme Court declaring it to be constitutional. Passage of the law in 2011 put Wisconsin at the center of a nationwide battle over union rights and fueled Walkers rise to national prominence as he entered the mix of possible 2016 presidential candidates. Anger over the law led to Walker being forced to stand for recall in 2012; he won, making him the rst governor in U.S. history to withstand such a vote. Walker is up for re-election this November, the third time he will be on the ballot in four years. The 5-2 state Supreme Court ruling is another major victory for Walker as he heads into the statewide election. Federal courts twice said the law, which limits public workers to bargaining only over base wage increases no greater than ination, constitutional. No matter the limitations or burdens a legislative enactment places on the collective bargaining process, collective bargaining remains a creation of legislative grace and not constitutional obligation, Justice Michael Gableman wrote for the courts conservative majority. The law also requires public employees to contribute more toward their health insurance and pension costs, bars automatic withdrawals from members paychecks and requires annual elections to see if members want their unions to go on representing them. In a two-sentence statement issued Thursday, Walker praised the ruling and claimed the law has saved taxpay ers more than $3 billion mostly attributable to schools and local governments saving more money because of the higher contributions. Todays ruling is a victory for those hard-working taxpayers, Walker said.Wisconsin Supreme Court upholds 2011 union law AP FILE PHOTOIn this Aug. 25, 2011, photo, Mary Kay Baum joins hundreds of labor union members at a rally to protest the collective bargaining measures of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walkers adminis tration at the Wisconsin State Capitol Building in Madison, Wis. (AP) She once called Donald Trump a maggot, a cockroach and a crumb. This week, he remembered her as an impossible person. The woman who became a folk hero for resisting decades-long efforts by big-name developers like Trump to displace her Atlantic City boardinghouse is now 86 and, at last, has sold. The 29-room property she and her husband bought for $20,000 in 1961 and fought to hold onto went at auction Thursday afternoon for $530,000 plus 10 percent commission, said Joshua Olshin of AuctionAdvisors, which handled the sale. Bidding started at $199,000, priced to sell in Atlantic Citys depressed real estate market. The now-vacant property had been listed for $995,000 since September. The winning bidder is a local real estate person who wishes to remain anonymous, Olshin said. Vera Coking has moved to California to be near her family. Her long-running saga has paralleled the rise and fall of Atlantic Citys real estate fortunes. The decision to auction the property was made by Cokings family after they could not nd a buyer, said Oren Klein of AuctionAdvisors, which is handling the sale. The road to the auction block has been circuitous. Coking rst took on Penthouse publisher Bob Guccione in the 1970s, who was reportedly so angered by her refusal to sell that he started building his casino above and around her property. Trump, who bought Gucciones unnished project, also tried to buy Cokings building to tear it down and use the land for his Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino. Coking battled with Trump and prevailed in a 1998 state Supreme Court case that blocked attempts by the state to use eminent domain to condemn the property. Cokings one-woman battle was closely followed in the press and by the people of Atlantic City, where she and her property, sitting deantly in the shadow of Trumps casino, have been a familiar sight for decades. The modest, three-story clapboard structure is a block from the famous Atlantic City boardwalk and adjacent to the casinos, that like Trumps, have sought to expand their parking facilities or outdoor footprint. AuctionAdvisors had stressed the boardinghouses location just steps from a planned Bass Pro shop and adjacent to an outlet mall that the city advertises as a main attraction. Klein and his associates say that they are condent that Atlantic City will bounce back and that the Coking property is a great buy in one of the last affordable beachfront towns in New Jersey. Atlantic Citys real estate market and casino businesses have faltered amid increased competition in nearby states. Trump Plaza may close in September, although Trump himself is largely divested. The portrait of Coking as a principled holdout is wrong, Trump said, asserting that she had been willing to sell but that they could never agree on a price. She could have lived happily ever after in Palm Beach, Florida; instead, she was an impossible person to deal with, Trump told The Associated Press this week.Home owned by Trump holdout auctioned for $530,000 AP PHOTOTrump Plaza Hotel and Casino towers over Vera Cokings three story rooming house July 23, in Atlantic City, N.J. -.TDNSrt iIJJ4M .'YI r Y'1 1 1i dirr_ r i'

The Sun /Friday, August 1, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 3 WORLD NEWS FREETOWN, Sierra Leone (AP) Security forces went house-tohouse in Sierra Leones capital Thursday looking for Ebola patients and others exposed to the disease as the death toll from the worst recorded outbreak in history surpassed 700 in West Africa. U.S. health ofcials urged Americans not to travel to the three countries hit by the medical crisis: Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. Almost half of the 57 new deaths reported by the World Health Organization occurred in Liberia, where two Americans, Dr. Kent Brantly of Texas and Nancy Writebol, a North Carolina-based missionary, are also sick with Ebola. Writebol is in stable but serious condition and is receiving an experimental treatment that doctors hope will better address her condition, according to a statement released by SIM, a Christian missions organization. Her husband, David, is close by but can only visit his wife through a window or dressed in a haz-mat suit, the statement said. There was only enough (of the experimental serum) for one person. Dr. Brantly asked that it be given to Nancy Writebol, said Franklin Graham, president of Samaritans Purse, another aid organization that has been working in Liberia during the Ebola crisis. Brantly, who works for the aid group, did receive a unit of blood from a 14-year-old boy who had survived Ebola because of the doctors care, Graham said in a statement. The young boy and his family wanted to be able to help the doctor who saved his life, he said. Giving a survivors blood to a patient might be aimed at seeing whether any antibodies the survivor made to the virus could help some one else ght off the infection. This approach has been tried in previous Ebola outbreaks with mixed results. No further details were provided on the experimental treatment. There is currently no licensed drug or vaccine for Ebola, and patients can only be given supportive care to keep them hydrated. There are a handful of experimental drug and vaccine candidates for Ebola and while some have had promising results in animals, including monkeys, none has been rigorously tested in humans. The disease has continued to spread through bodily uids as sick people remain out in the community and cared for by relatives without protective gear. People have become ill from touching sick family members and in some cases from soiled linens. In Sierra Leone, which borders Liberia to the northwest, authorities are vowing to quarantine all those at home who have refused to go to isolation centers. Many families have kept relatives at home to pray for their survival instead of bringing them to clinics that have had a 60 percent fatality rate. Those in the throngs of death can bleed from their eyes, mouth and ears. Rosa Crestani, Ebola emergency coordinator for Doctors Without Borders, also known as Medecins Sans Frontieres, said it is crucial at this point to gain the trust of communities that have been afraid to let health workers in and to deploy more medical staff.W. Africa Ebola outbreak tops 700 deaths AP PHOTOSocial Commentator Alfred Sirleaf, gives comment on current events in Liberia including the deadly Ebola virus by speaking and writing them down on a blackboard, as people gather round him to listen in Monrovia, Liberia, Thursday. BENGHAZI, Libya (AP) Islamic hard-line militias, including the group accused by the United States in a 2012 attack that killed the ambassador and three other Americans, claimed control of Libyas second largest city, Benghazi, after overrunning army barracks and seizing heavy weapons. The sweep in the eastern city is part of a new backlash by hard-liners against their rivals ahead of the sitting of a new parliament. In the capital Tripoli, escalating battles Thursday between militias prompted multiple foreign governments to scramble to get out their citizens as thousands of Libyans ed across the border into Tunisia. The weeks-long surge of violence renewed fears that Libya, which has been in chaos since the 2011 civil war that ousted longtime dictator Moammar Gadha, is plunging deeper into civil strife. With a crippled central government and weak army and police, the countrys numerous rival militias have held sway in Libya for the past three years. Though they battled each other frequently, a balance of fear among them prevented any from going too far and forced them to divide areas of power. But now, the militias led by Islamist and extremist commanders appear to be trying to gain a more decisive upper hand. The Health Ministry said in a statement Thursday that the death toll in Tripoli since the violence intensied in the past month reached 214, with more than 981 people wounded. BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) Stocks fell sharply in Argentina on Thursday as the country defaulted on its bills for the second time in 13 years, raising fears the move could diminish foreign reserves, stoke ination and drive the economy deeper into recession. The Merval stock index was down nearly 7 per cent in midday trading after Argentina walked away Wednesday evening from talks in New York, where a court-appointed mediator led negotiations with U.S. hedge funds demanding some $1.5 billion Earlier Wednesday, shares had rallied when a group of private Argentine bankers announced it would offer to buy up the disputed debt. Such a deal would have enabled Argentina to make a late interest payment owed to a separate group of bondholders, which would have allowed it to avoid default. The stock exchange is falling heavily because it was, in the end, surprised by the fact that negotiations yesterday were frustrated, said Belen Olaiz, an economist with ABECEB.com Consultants in Buenos Aires. The default did not seem to rattle global markets, largely because investors have been well aware of Argentinas problems since its record $100 billion default in 2001. Also, traders had been preparing for a worst-case scenario before the talks fell apart, and many still hope a deal will be struck soon.Libya Islamic militias declare control of BenghaziStocks fall in Argentina as country enters default +0% financing in lieu of rebates, with approved credit, through ALL!

Page 4 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, August 1, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) A New Mexico man faces charges after authorities say a couple found him naked and sleeping in their bed. Investigators say 30-year-old Freddy Shelby of Albuquerque was arrested Sunday after the homeowners called police to report their unwanted mystery guest. According to a criminal complaint, Shelby broke into the couples home through a window and grabbed a Sprite from the refrigerator before falling asleep in the master bedroom. Authorities say the homeowners found a disrobed Shelby in a deep sleep. Officers arrived and called to the man, but he slept through it. Authorities say Shelby woke up only after an officer ripped the blankets off him. Shelby told officers he thought he was at his girlfriends house. He was charged with breaking and entering.ODD NEWS Police: Naked intruder fell asleep in couples bed ALMANACToday is Friday, August 1, the 213th day of 2014. There are 152days left in the year.

Palestinian ofcials said Thursday that Abbas asked all Palestinian political factions, including Hamas and the smaller group Islamic Jihad, to give their written consent to such a move. Different PLO factions signed up in a meeting in the West Bank earlier this week, while Abbas is still waiting for a response from Hamas and Islamic Jihad, they said. In trying to make a case against Israel, Abbas could also expose Hamas, a bitter rival turned potential political partner, to war crimes prosecu tion because it has red thousands of rockets from Gaza at Israeli communities over the years. This option is a double-edged sword, Abbas Fatah movement wrote on its ofcial Facebook page Thursday, saying he would only move ahead once he has the approval of Hamas. In Geneva, U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay on Thursday accused both Israel and Hamas militants of violating the rules of war. She said Hamas is violating international humanitarian law by locating rockets within schools and hospitals, or even launching these rockets from densely populated areas. But she added that this does not absolve Israel from disregarding the same law. Pillay said the Israeli government has deed international law in Gaza by attacking civilian areas such as schools, hospitals, homes and U.N. facilities. None of this appears to me to be accidental, Pillay said of Israel. They appear to be defying deliberate deance of obligations that international law imposes on Israel. Pillay also took aim at the U.S., Israels main ally, for providing nancial support for Israels Iron Dome anti-rocket defense system. No such protection has been provided to Gazans against the shelling, she said. Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor declined comment on Pillays allegations and on the Palestinian deliberations concerning the ICC. Israeli ofcials have said Israel is acting in self-defense by targeting Hamas military arsenal and rocket-launching sites. They have accused Hamas of using Gaza civilians as human shields. At the United Nations, Israels Ambassador Ron Prosor responded to criticism of his country, saying: I think the international community should be very vocal in standing with Israel ghting terrorism today because if not, you will see it on your doorstep tomorrow.CRIMESFROM PAGE 1 There was no immediate Israeli comment on the announcement. In a statement released in New Delhi where Secretary of State John Kerry is traveling, the U.S. and U.N. said they had gotten assurances that all parties to the conict had agreed to an unconditional cease-re. This humanitarian cease-re will commence at 8 a.m. local time on Friday, Aug. 1, 2014. It will last for a period of 72 hours unless extended. During this time the forces on the ground will remain in place, the statement said. We urge all parties to act with restraint until this humanitarian cease-re begins, and to fully abide by their commitments during the cease-re. The statement said the cease-re was critical to give civilians a much-needed reprieve from violence. During this period, civilians in Gaza will receive humanitarian relief and have time to bury the dead, take care of the injured and restock food supplies. The time also will be used to repair water and energy infrastructure. Earlier, the Israeli military said it was calling up an additional 16,000 reserve soldiers to pursue its campaign against the Islamic militants. At least 1,441 Palestinians have been killed, three-quarters of them civilians, since hostilities began on July 8, according to Gaza health ofcials surpassing the at least 1,410 Palestinians killed in 2009, according to Palestinian rights groups. Israel says 56 soldiers, two Israeli civilians and a Thai agricultural worker have died also far more than the 13 Israeli deaths in the previous campaign.CEASEFIREFROM PAGE 1 1990s, but the population has rebounded thanks to conservation efforts. The problem began to draw the attention of state and federal wildlife ofcials about four years ago, after third-gener ation Florida rancher Liesa Priddy, owner of the 9,300-acre JB Ranch near Immokalee, became suspicious when a new calf vanished. My rst calf went missing shortly after being born, said Priddy, who is also a member of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. I couldnt nd remnants of a body or anything else. She just totally disappeared. Ranchers had been telling federal and state wildlife ofcials about the problem for years, but lacked scientic evidence. Calves are also commonly killed by coyotes, vultures and even bears. In the past, ranchers simply would have shot the panthers, but because the states 100 to 180 panthers are legally protected under the Endangered Species Act, they have few options. Priddy had a local outdoorsman stake out her pasture with night-vision goggles. That night, a panther took a calf and they found the carcass, Priddy said. She called out a state biologist, who conrmed it was a panther kill and began the research to nd out how pervasive the issue had become. We started to hear more from the ranching community as a whole that this was a problem that we need to address, said Kevin Godsea, project leader of the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge. Since then weve done some investigating. We didnt know how big the problem was. The researchers targeted two ranches and tagged 400 calves on each. They found that JB Ranch, which has nearby forests where panthers can hide, lost 10 calves, or about 5 percent. A beef cow can go for around $1,000. A lost heifer can cost future prots from breeding more cows. The other ranch lost only one calf to panthers over that time.CALVESFROM PAGE 1 part time even though they want full-time jobs. Its taking longer to nd work. People are still struggling with mortgage debt. Some feel down about the economy because of their political views. And most people dont feel free to spend as much as they used to. A closer look at some of the factors:Lagging incomesMost people are still earning less, adjusted for ination, than before the recession struck at the end of 2007. Even many who kept their jobs through the recession or easily found work after being let go are no better off. The typical family income in current dollars is $52,959, according to Sentier Research. Factoring in ination, thats $3,303 less than before the recession a nearly 6 percent drop. That helps explain the nagging discontent that some people feel about the economy even as the unemployment rate has sunk from a peak of 10 percent in 2009. Many Americans have heard about the economys steady recovery without feeling theyve beneted from it. A review by Wells Fargo found that after-tax income fell for the bottom 20 percent of earners and barely rose for the next-highest 20 percent during the recovery. Wages are just not keeping up, said Christine Owens, executive director of the National Employment Law Project. We dont have an economy that is as robust as we need it to be.Fewer full-time jobsFinding a steady full-time job has become harder. There are 27.4 million parttime jobs, representing 18.8 percent of jobs in the U.S. economy, according to the Labor Department. Before the recession, 16.5 percent of all jobs were part time. Some of this increase is due to the still-sluggish recovery: Employers want to cut costs and payrolls by limiting their workers to fewer than 35 hours a week. But the trend might also reect a lasting shift among restaurants and coffee shops, said John Silvia, chief economist at Wells Fargo. A lot of companies have gured out that they didnt need employ ees to sell coffee between 2 and 4 p.m. that nobody is buying, Silvia said.Employers slow to hireThe Help Wanted signs are out: There were 4.6 million available jobs in May, according to government data, the most in seven years and 20 percent more than a year ago. Yet not enough of those jobs are being lled. Steven Davis, an economist at the University of Chicago, and two colleagues calculated that it took an average of more than 25 days for employers to ll a vacant job in May. That was up from an average of 22.5 days last year and is the longest such gure in the 13 years that the data has been tracked. That suggests a mismatch in the job market: The unemployed might not have the skills companies want for the available jobs. Or businesses might not be offering enough pay or trying hard enough to ll the jobs.Cautious shoppingMost Americans are still being careful at cash registers and online checkouts. Consumer spending has risen at an average annual pace of just 2.2 percent since the recession ended in mid-2009. Thats far below the 3.4 percent average in the two decades preceding the recession. Americans are buying more cars. But thats forced them to cut back in other areas, such as clothing and electronics. The CEO of The Container Store has said the chains sales and prof its have suffered because consumers are in a retail funk. Thats hardly a surprise considering the weak pay growth and lingering anxiety after the gravest economic meltdown since the 1930s. Condence in the economy is still relatively low, suggesting that people are buying what they need instead of what they want. The Conference Boards consumer condence index was 85.2 in June. In the 20 years preceding the downturn, it averaged nearly 102.MARKETFROM PAGE 1 ORLANDO (Reuters) The lead in human teeth holds clues about where a person grew up and can help criminal investigators and archeologists working with old or decomposed corpses, according to a University of Florida researcher. Because lead ore deposits around the world differ, and as young peoples teeth absorb traces of the metal in the environment, the region where a person grew up can be distinguished through lead analysis of a tooth, said geologist George Kamenov. His study on the topic will appear in the August issue of Science of The Total Environment, a peer-reviewed journal. If you were born in Europe and then came to the U.S., yes, I will be able to see that, Kamenov said. I was born in Bulgaria so I have the European signal. Kamenov said he has worked with law enforcement ofcers on cold cases, with lead analysis helping investigators narrow their focus. In addition to aiding authorities in identifying bodies, the analysis can help archeologists locate human remains on an historical timeline, he said. The impact of leaded gasoline used from the 1920s through 1980s is also reected in the teeth, which can help narrow a bodys age, Kamenov said. Teeth can reveal whether a person spent formative years in the United States versus Europe, South America, Australia or other broad regions, he said. Beyond lead, Kamenov said that analysis of oxygen in bones, which regenerate every seven to 10 years, can pinpoint where a person spent the past decade. Other chemical elements in hair and nails provide information about the persons location over the previous several months, he said.Lead in teeth holds secrets of persons origins, research shows WASHINGTON (AP) The State Department has endorsed the broad conclusions of a harshly critical Senate report on the CIAs interrogation and detention practices after the 9/11 attacks, a report that accuses the agency of brutally treating terror suspects and misleading Congress, according to a White House document. This report tells a story of which no American is proud, says the four-page document, which contains the State Departments preliminary proposed talking points in response to the classied Senate report, a summary of which is expected to be released in the coming weeks. But it is also part of another story of which we can be proud, adds the document, which was circulating this week among White House ofcials and which the White House accidentally emailed to an Associated Press reporter. Americas democratic system worked just as it was designed to work in bringing an end to actions inconsistent with our democratic values. White House spokesman Josh Earnest called the talking points document a particularly sensitive piece of information. And the State Department said the talking points were the work of one person, should not have been sent to the White House and dont represent the views of the department. Its not clear who wrote the document or how inuential it will be in tailoring the Obama administrations ultimate response to an investigation that has been the subject of bitter disputes. It is common practice for the White House to solicit talking points from key agencies involved in responding to a major news event, which the release of the Senate report will be. The Senate report concludes that CIAs techniques on al-Qaida detainees captured after the 2001 attacks were far more brutal than previously understood. The tactics failed to produce life-saving intelligence, the report asserts, and the CIA misled Congress and the Justice Department about the interrogation program. The report does not draw the legal conclusion that the CIAs actions constituted torture, though it makes clear that in some cases they amounted to torture by a common denition, two people who have read the report said.State Dept.: No American is proud of CIA tactics MIKETod!

The Sun /Friday, August 1, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 5 STATE/SCIENCE NEWS TALLAHASSEE (News Service of Florida) Florida pot dispensers could truck their product to patients, under a revised rule proposed by health regulators in advance of a workshop Friday about the states move to a limited type of medical marijuana. The latest plan also would loosen restrictions on who could own the dispensing organizations. Nurseries with only one-quarter ownership of pot distribution businesses would be eligible for licenses, according to the draft rule released late Tuesday by the state Department of Healths Ofce of Compassionate Use. Despite numerous complaints expressed by nursery owners, lobbyists and others at a rule-making workshop earlier this month, health ofcials arent backing away from a lottery-based system to choose the recipients of ve licenses, a competition drawing operators and investors from around the world. The state has until Jan 1. to come up with the regulations regarding a strain of marijuana, authorized by the Republicandominated Legislature and approved by Gov. Rick Scott earlier this year, that purportedly does not get users high but can alleviate life-threatening seizures in children with severe epilepsy. Under the new law, patients who suffer from severe muscle spasms or cancer would also be eligible to get cannabis that is low in euphoria-inducing tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, and high in cannabadiol, or CBD, if their doctors order it. The law restricts dispensary applicants who would grow, process and distribute the low-THC product, usually a paste or oil to nurseries that have done business in Florida for at least 30 years and grow 400,000 plants or more. The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services has identied at least 55 nurseries that currently meet the criteria. Nursery owners have been bombarded by offers from investors and operators eager to cash in on the states newest regulated industry. Rumors are rampant about nurseries that are demanding millions from potential partners or growers who are being offered money to stay on the sidelines. Many of those interested in Charlottes Web, a low-THC strain named after a Colorado girl, are hoping to get started in the pot business now with an eye on a proposed constitutional amendment going before voters in November that would allow doctors to order traditional medical marijuana for certain patients. In the meantime, eligible nursery operators are pairing up with lobbyists and lawyers as they wade into turf unfamiliar to even the most sophisticated regulatory experts. The law allows one dispensing organization in each of ve regions around the state. It also allows the dispensing organizations to have an infrastructure reasonably located to dispense lowTHC cannabis to registered patients statewide or regionally as determined by the department. At the rule-making workshop earlier this month, health ofcials heard that just ve locations would be inadequate to meet patients needs. The new draft rule would allow dispensing organizations to deliver 30-day supplies of the medical marijuana derivative directly to patients. Potential operators are divided on the transportation issue. An infrastructure cannot be a truck. An infrastructure is a place, said Louis Rotundo, a lobbyist who represents the Florida Medical Cannabis Association, a coalition of growers, investors and others interested in the pot business.Pot trucks on tap in Florida? MIAMI (Miami Herald) After Miami Beach Police Detective Reinaldo Casas tested positive for cocaine, he insisted that the drug had been unwittingly absorbed into his blood through an erection-enhancing cream he applied to his genitals. His defense worked. An arbitrator this week ordered Casas, who was red last year because of this positive drug test, be reinstated with complete back pay. There is no evidence in the record to show that (Casas) was aware the cream contained a controlled substance, according to the arbitrators report released Thursday. By law, Miami Beach police must comply with the ruling. The decision caps an embarrassing saga for Casas, who was a respected homicide investigator when he was red in February 2013. Casas had failed a random drug test administered by the police department. Having never knowingly used cocaine, I was bafed, perplexed and confused, Casas wrote in his grievance. At a grievance hearing, Casas testied that a buddy, Idilio Godinez, gave him the cream with the advice that it would help him in his sexual liaisons. Godinez testied that he got the sex-enhancement cream from an old Cuban guy as a gift for giving him some political campaign signs. Godinez claimed he did not know what was in the cream, but had tried it himself and it worked. The substance, which resembled Vaseline, was contained in a series of unmarked purple containers and appeared to be homemade. The city insisted that Casas story was incredible and he should have known what he was ingesting his body. The arbitrator disagreed and ordered Casas returned to duty with back pay he earns $74,745.84 a year.Cop gets job back after testing positive for cocaine NEW YORK (AP) Researchers have found a way to make see-through mice, but you wont nd these critters scampering in your kitchen. The transparent rodents arent alive and theyre for research only, to help scientists study ne details of anatomy. Before they are treated with chemicals, the animals are euthanized and their skin removed. Researchers made their inner organs transparent, but not their bones. The results look like a rodent-shaped block of gelatin with the organs held in place by connective tissue and a gel used in the procedure. Mice are mainstays of biomedical research because much of their basic biology is similar to ours and they can be altered in ways that simulate human diseases. Scientists have been able to make tissues transparent to some degree for a century, and in recent years several new methods have been developed. Last year, for example, a technique that produced see-through mouse brains made headlines. Such treatments reveal far more detail than X-rays or MRI exams could deliver. The new work is the rst to make an entire transpar ent mouse, experts said. It should be useful for projects like mapping the details of the nervous system or the spread of cancer within lab animals, said Viviana Gradinaru of the California Institute of Technology, senior author of a paper describing the work. It was released Thursday by the journal Cell. It might also help doctors analyze biopsy samples from people someday, she said. The see-through technique involves pumping a series of chemicals through blood vessels, as well as other passages in the brain and spinal cord. Some chemicals form a mesh to hold tissue in place. Others wash out the fats that make tissue block light. It takes about a week to create a transparent mouse, Gradinaru said. The researchers have also made transparent rats, which take about two weeks, she said. Scientists can use stains to highlight anatomical details like the locations of active genes.See-through mice reveal inner anatomy AP PHOTOThis undated photo combo provided by the journal Cell and taken with a bright eld camera, shows a mouse with its skin removed during various stages of examination. (The Washington Post) Lensing galaxies are so huge that they act like magnifying glasses for the space behind them. Their gravity can bend and distort light from smaller galaxies farther beyond. Now, scientists using NASAs Hubble Space Telescope have unexpectedly found the most distant lensing galaxy to date. Its light has taken 9.6 billion years to reach us (200 million light years closer than the previous record holder), and the obect its magnifying a tiny spiral galaxy that we can now see undergoing a surge of star formation is 10.7 billion light years away. Kenneth Wong, one of the researchers to announce the discovery, said in a NASA press release that these cosmic magniers arent all that rare. But to nd them outside of our stellar backyard is a special treat. There are hundreds of lens galaxies that we know about, but almost all of them are relatively nearby, in cosmic terms, said Wong, rst author on the teams science paper. To nd a lens as far away as this one is a very special discovery because we can learn about the dark-matter content of galaxies in the distant past. By comparing our analysis of this lens galaxy to the more nearby lenses, we can start to understand how that dark-matter content has evolved over time. Dark matter, which cant be seen, makes up most of the universes mass. Astronomers used to think that dark matter and stars increased at an equal pace as a galaxy grew, the researchers explained, but they now know that the ratio of one kind of matter to another changes. The lens galaxy has presumably spent the past 9 billion years bulking up on dark matter as it grew up, and today it probably looks a lot like the massive galaxies we nd closer to home. But because its so far away, the image we see of it provides a fascinating lens into the past.A galaxy so huge, it acts like a magnifying glass | STATE NEWS BRIEFSFloridas sales-tax holiday starts todayWEST PALM BEACH (Cox Newspapers) Floridas back-to-school sales-tax holiday kicks off today, offering shoppers a tax break on more clothing and computer-related items this year. The three-day tax break runs through Sunday. During that time, shoppers wont be charged the states 6 percent sales tax on hundreds of school-related items. The state has expanded the annual tax break this year to include clothing, footwear and certain accessories up to $100, Last years limit was $75. Computers will be tax-exempt on the rst $750 of the sales price. That means shoppers who buy a $1,000 computer will pay taxes only on $250 a $45 savings. Last years tax break was limited to computers of $750 or less. Like last year, school supplies up to $15 are also exempt. The state estimates taxpayers will save about $39 million this year as a result of the tax holiday.SeaWorld, Southwest Airlines ending partnershipORLANDO (AP) Southwest Airlines and SeaWorld Entertainment are ending their 25-yearold marketing partner ship, ofcials with both companies said Thursday, as the airline has been urged by animal rights activists to terminate the relationship. The partnership wont be renewed at the end of the year when the current contract expires. As part of the partnership, three Southwest airplanes had various SeaWorld animals painted on their bodies. Those planes will be painted over to Southwests traditional look. SeaWorld also had Southwest signs in its parks, and Southwest offered vacation packages to SeaWorld, as it does to other tourist destinations. The vacation packages will continue. SeaWorld ofcials said the decision was mutual. SeaWorld wants to concentrate on growing markets in Latin America and Asia, the marine park company said in a statement. Southwest spokeswoman Marilee McInnis said it was a business decision as the airline intends to focus on international service.Judge denies golfers stand your ground claimDAYTONA BEACH (AP) A central Florida judge has denied a stand your ground claim by a golfer who is accused of beating a man who claimed a golf ball had hit his pickup truck. Circuit Judge R. Michael Hutcheson on Wednesday determined that 44-yearold David James Barrors piston-like punching of 64-year-old Richard Fillingame last summer was an overreaction. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports Fillingame confronted Barror while he was golng last summer. No damage was found on the truck. The incident led to a confrontation that left the older man with several broken bones. Barror was charged with aggravated battery punishable by up to 15 years in prison. The judge said neither man is a bad person and suggested the attorneys get together and reach a compromise.2 Pinellas chickens test positive for encephalitisSEMINOLE (AP) Health ofcials are asking residents to use mosquito repellent and to eliminate standing water around their homes after two sentinel chickens tested positive for St. Louis encephalitis. The Pinellas County Mosquito Control issued an advisory Thursday. Theyre treated known mosquito breeding areas by ground and by air and responding to requests from residents. The Tampa Bay Times reports the chickens were housed in an unincorporated Seminole area. St. Louis encephalitis differs from chikungunya, which is also transmitted by mosquitoes. There have been three conrmed cases of chikungunya this year in Pinellas County. All of those cases were contracted by people who had visited the Caribbean. Symptoms of St. Louis encephalitis include fever, headache, dizziness, nausea and malaise. Some patients develop central nervous system infections.Price tag for new expressway is $454MST. PETERSBURG (AP) Florida Department of Transportation ofcials say a new expressway linking two major roads in the Tampa Bay area will cost about $454 million about $116 million more than rst announced. Most of the extra expense is from buying right of way along the route, a cost estimated at $93.5 million. The expressway will eventually link Interstate 275 and U.S. 19, and the unfunded project has been moved forward by as much as 20 years. The Tampa Tribune reports that DOT ofcials revealed the cost of right of way purchases to the Pinellas County Commission at a workshop Tuesday. They also announced that the toll to drive elevated sections to avoid stoplights will be 75 cents and that the ve-year construction schedule also could make life complicated for the St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport.Sheriff: Baby left in van outside doctors officeORLANDO (AP) A doctor and nurses went to the aid of a 2-month-old baby girl after a Florida mom left the infant in a hot minivan outside a pediatricians ofce for about an hour, authorities say. The woman, who wasnt identied, faces a felony charge of child neglect, the Orange County Sheriffs Ofce said Wednesday. The mother told authorities she had taken her 9-year-old son to the doctors ofce Tuesday afternoon and left the baby in the van because the infant was sleeping and she didnt want to disturb her, according to a sheriffs report. The report said the woman also told author ities she didnt expect the doctors appointment to last long. But after waiting about an hour, the woman realized she hadnt breastfed the baby, ran outside and brought the child into the ofce where a pediatrician and nurses were able to stabilize the girl with cool compresses, it added. The babys skin was red and hot, the sheriffs report said. It added that the girl had a temperature of 101.6 degrees before being cooled down. 10mm 10mm

Upstart French telecom company Iliad SA on Thursday said it has offered $15 billion for a majority stake. Iliad is injecting itself into the courtship of T-Mobile, the fourth-largest US cellphone carrier, and Sprint Corp., the No. 3. Sprint has reportedly been in talks with T-Mobile for months, but no deal has been announced.

The four-week aver age of jobless claims, considered a less volatile measure than the weekly gure, dropped to 297,250, the lowest since April 2006, from 300,750 the prior week. Claims in the period ended July 26 climbed to 302,000, in line with the median forecast of economists surveyed by Bloomberg, from a revised 279,000 the prior week that was the lowest since 2000. NEW YORK (AP) For investors, there were few havens on Thursday. The stock market had its worst one-day drop since February, driven down by a conuence of worries, from weak company earnings to the looming end of stimulus from the Federal Reserve. But it wasnt just stocks that suffered; oil fell to its lowest level since March, gold dropped and even Treasury notes edged lower. Stocks started the day lower after a dose of bad earnings news, and the losses accelerated throughout the day. Whole Foods Market and Exxon Mobil were among companies that fell after reporting results or forecasts that disappointed investors. The stock market has been on a bull run for more than ve years, with the most recent leg of that surge pushing the Standard & Poors 500 index to an all-time high a week ago. Investors are now getting concerned that stocks may have climbed too far and reect too much optimism on the outlook for growth. Weve been on a strong run, said Jerry Braakman, chief investment ofcer at First American Trust. Theres just more concern that stock valuations are rich compared to historical norms. The S&P 500 dropped 39.40 points, or 2 percent, to 1,930.67, its biggest loss since April 10. The drop pushed the index to its rst monthly loss since January. The Dow Jones industrial average plunged 317.06 points, or 1.9 percent, to 16,563.30. The Nasdaq composite fell 93.13 points, or 2.1 percent, to 4,369.77. The Russell 2000, an index of small company stocks, plunged 26.50 points, or 2.3 percent, to 1,120.07 Gold fell $13.60, or 1.1 percent, to $1,281.30 an ounce. Benchmark U.S. crude fell $2.10 to close at $98.17 a barrel in New York, its lowest level since March 17.US stocks plunge, wiping out Julys gains 0 0

For the families of the victims, it was an important start in locating and recovering bodies still rotting in the elds and building a case against those who perpetrated the tragedy. Harun Calehr, the uncle of two young victims of the disaster, said by phone from his home in the U.S. that he was happy investigators had reached the site. But Calehr said he remains concerned that dozens of bodies havent been retrieved. Its been two weeks. I just hope they can get there now and do their job, Calehr said from Houston. The only thing keeping me sane is being religious, hoping for something positive. As the investigators two apiece from the Netherlands and Australia made an initial survey of the area shortly after lunchtime, mortar shells rained down on elds in a nearby village. Despite the lingering signs of risk, the team called their onehour inspection a success. For days, clashes along routes to the wreckage site had kept investigators from reaching the area to nd and retrieve bodies that have been lying in open elds where midsummer temperatures have hovered around 90 degrees. But after negotiations, the investigators were allowed through the nal rebel checkpoint before the wreckage site at the village of Rozsypne by a rie-toting militiaman who then red a warning shot to prevent reporters from accompanying the convoy on Thursday afternoon. The militiaman, who gave his name only as Sergei, said there was still ghting in Rozsypne as the Ukrainian army continues an offensive to take back swatches of territory from the rebels. Australian Federal Police commander Brian McDonald said the visit was only a preliminary survey before more comprehensive recovery work. We had a quick inspection of the site. Today was more about an assessment of the site than it was of a search, said McDonald, who was in police uniform. Up to 80 bodies are still at the site, said Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, speaking to the Australian Broadcasting Corp. from Ukraine. Ukrainian national security spokesman Andriy Lysenko said a day of quiet was declared Thursday in response to a call for a cease-re from U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. But Associated Press journalists near the wreckage site reported that clashes were still taking place in the immediate vicinity of where the Boeing 777 came down. Reporters who attempted to reach the area by another route were warned by residents that some nearby roads had been mined. And AP reporters passing by Hrabove, another village around which fragments of the plane remain uncollected, saw one mortar shell fall on a spot about 150 meters (160 yards) from their car and heard two more hit nearby. It wasnt immediately clear who was responsible for the mortar re or what the intended target was though Lysenko put the blame on rebels.Investigators reach Ukraine jet wreckage site AP PHOTOUkrainian government armys soldiers stand guard next to the cars of Convoy of the OSCE mission in Ukraine at a checkpoint in the village of Debaltseve, Donetsk region, eastern Ukraine Thursday. JERUSALEM (AP) Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday that Israel will destroy Hamas tunnel network in the Gaza Strip designed for deadly attacks inside Israel, with or without a ceasere, as the military called up another 16,000 reservists to pursue its campaign against Palestinian militants in the densely-populated territory. Netanyahus warning came as international efforts to end the 23-dayold conict seemed to sputter despite concern over the mounting death toll. More than 1,422 Palestinians have been killed so far, including many civilians, according to Gaza health ofcials. The high Palestinian death toll surpasses the number of Palestinians killed in Israels last major invasion of Gaza in January 2009, when, according to Palestinian rights groups, at least 1,410 people died. Israel had said the aim of that operation was to end Palestinian rocket attacks. At least 59 Israelis have been killed in this months ghting, most of them soldiers also a much higher death toll compared to the 2009 campaign. We have neutralized dozens of terror tunnels and we are committed to complete this mission, with or without a cease-re, Netanyahu said. Therefore, I will not agree to any offer that does not allow the military to complete this important mission for the security of the people of Israel. Israel expanded what started July 8 as an aerial campaign against Hamas and widened it into a ground offensive on July 17. Since then, Israel says the campaign has concentrated on destroy ing cross-border tunnels militants constructed to carry out attacks inside Israeli territory and ending rocket attacks on its cities. Israel says most of the 32 tunnels it uncovered have now been demolished and that getting rid of the remainder will take no more than a few days. An Israeli defense ofcial, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not permitted to discuss the matter with media, said the purpose of the latest call-up was to provide relief for troops currently on the Gaza ring line. Thursdays call-ups were rotations, leaving the overall number of mobilized Israeli reservists at around 70,000, according to a military ofcial, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations. However, Israeli ofcials have also said they do not rule out broadening operations in the coming days. Fifty-six Israeli soldiers and three civilians on the Israeli side have been killed since the offensive began, as Palestinians red over 2,850 rockets at Israel some reaching major cities but many intercepted by the Iron Dome defense system and carried out deadly attacks through tunnels beneath the heavily guarded frontier. One Israeli was seriously wounded Thursday when a Palestinian rocket exploded in a residential area of Kiryat Gat, the military said. The rocket damaged a house and destroyed several cars parked on the street. Another rocket was intercepted over Tel Aviv by Israels rocket defense system, the military said. Israel has said it launched the Gaza operation to try to end relentless rocket re on its cities from Hamas and other armed Palestinian groups as well as to seek and destroy a network of tunnels Hamas dug to inltrate Israel for attacks.Israel vows to destroy Hamas tunnels 174ONLY ONSeattleG84g0 ,Winnipeg,H D 4 B 1599 5 Ottawa'. n I f\,`.' \,7956 Montreal1Btfl9rnto 92/61 44 S, 8New York: + a81/67.Chicagoii62/62I_I San Franciscoi 80/56 s'82161 1 80/56 Waahin..n.,: /" / t. r 0 r `w I Kansas City 180J690 T1 s t L v.;g,yrr.rn. 0 0 a 1 1 Loos geles 83!63 /. .5 ::. .:66166 / .10 10 mmnta{ts, r P J F-L 1 81/69s k \ r 0 e '_ EI Paso ~~ #O .......' 85!69 ......HoustChihuahua .. s'. 1 .lrI/4C/ i r 0 .8:: Monterrey 7 `Mlaini :t:y V 100/75 .....:8+Nr ./ J lrI f:80 50 100150 200 300 5000TO ITrees 0Graze'r 0Weeds dl-Mold ao q fn0 0 -absent bw moderate high reryhlglAccuWeather.comArclic4r,Y ti y5i Jt.

PETERSBURG Tampa Bay decided the long-term future was more important than the short-term, trading ace David Price to the Tigers in a three-team deal with Seattle. The Rays obtained lefthander Drew Smyly and shortstop prospect Willy Adames (from Detroit) and inelder Nick Franklin (from Seattle). Smyly, 25, is 6-9 with a 3.77 ERA pitching at the back end of the Tigers rotation. Adames, 18, is playing at Class A, hitting .269. Franklin, an Orlando-area product the Rays have admired, has spent much of the season at Triple-A for the Mariners, hitting .294 with an .847 on-base plus slugging percentage. Price, 28, is one of the top pitchers and bigger stars in the game, having compiled an 82-47 record and 3.18 ERA in six-plus seasons, making four All-Star teams Rays throw in ace-high handBy MARC TOPKINTAMPA BAY TIMES MLB: Tampa BayClubs six-week rally isnt enough to offset its needs for the long term ANGELS AT RAYSWHO: Los Angeles (63-43) at Tampa Bay (53-55)* WHEN: Today, 7:10 p.m. WHERE: Tropicana Field, St. Petersburg PROBABLE PITCHERS: Matt Shoemaker (8-3, 4.13) vs. Jeremy Hellickson (0-0, 1.00) TV: Sun Sports RADIO: 620 AM, 1220 AM, 1480 AM, 1530 AM, 1580 AM Does not include Thursdays game. PRICE | 3ST. PETERSBURGThats it? Thats all? Bet thats what youre thinking right now. Im guessing that was your immediate reaction when you heard Tampa Bay traded its best pitcher the best pitcher they have ever had, maybe the best player they have ever had to the Tigers just before Thursdays Major League Baseball non-waiver trade deadline. At rst glance, the return for All-Star pitcher David Price seems rather light. The Rays received a mediocre major-league pitcher, a middle inelder who has yet to really stick in the majors and an 18-year-old prospect still down in Single-A ball. Egads. They got more for Matt Garza, didnt they? They got a better haul when they traded James Shields, wouldnt you say? So what the heck happened? The Rays just got eeced, right? Well, to everyone looking to burn down Tropicana Field, calm down. Take a deep breath. Put away those pitchforks and torches. Its not the end of the world. Its not the end of the Rays.

Jared Sandberg, the Stone Crabs manager, defines shutdown innings as a team following a half-inning in which it scored with a half-inning in which it allowed no runs. Sandberg said the team has talked about not only getting shutdown innings, but also about not letting its opponent get shutdown innings. In Thursdays 7-3 victory against the Tampa Yankees at Charlotte Sports Park, the Stone Crabs succeeded in both aspects. After Jordan Harrison allowed a run in the top of the second inning, the Stone Crabs immediately scored two in the bottom of the second.

NFL: Hall of Fame Derrick BrooksSeeds of greatnessPENSACOLA Derrick Brooks was only a sophomore when Jimmie Nichols rst realized how special Brooks could be. The longtime Panhandle high school football coach had seen that kind of talent, charisma and determination only once before, when Emmitt Smith began his run toward the Hall of Fame. Two years later, Nichols knew he had another once-in-a-lifetime player. After being around Emmitt, you kind of get the feeling that this guys special. Theres something special here, and hes going to do special things, Nichols said. And he did. Over and over and over and over. Starting here, inside the gray brick walls of Booker T. Washington High School. This is where the boy nicknamed Bo became the nations top player for a school that didnt even have a home eld. This is where he trained and lifted and studied, creating a legacy that lls these colorful halls, from the black and white photograph next to the math awards to the name of the athletic complex. And this is where the man who was never the biggest or the strongest or fastest developed the drive and leadership that sent him to Tampa Bay stardom and the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

An extended separation, the result of a devastating left knee injury, changed Rose in an unexpected way and tar nished the love that created the youngest most valuable player in NBA history. When he nally felt physically ready to return after an 18-month layoff last season, Rose found his desire to reclaim his dominance and silence doubters all at once, had turned his passion into a stodgy profession. I think that was just a dark side for me, a dark period of time, Rose said, reecting on his failed rst comeback. I felt like it was damn near like a job instead of just going out there and having fun. I wasnt smiling, I wasnt enjoying the game. I was trying not to mess up. Rose is smiling again this week at Team USA training camp at UNLV Mendenhall Center, where he has reminded players, coaches and all other observers of the electrifying player he was before injuries limited him to just 10 games over the past two seasons. The Chicago Bulls all-star guard is breaking down defenders and getting to the rim to make fall away oaters and throwing down explosive, blink-of-the-eye reex dunks off two feet. When reporters were allowed to watch practice on Wednesday, Rose quickly attracted all attention when he blocked shots on consecutive possessions, including pinning a Stephen Curry layup attempt at the rim. Afterward, a relaxed Rose shared some laughs with Washington Wizards guard John Wall and John Calipari, their former college coach who helped both go No. 1 overall in the NBA draft. The conversation eventually turned serious, when Rose told Calipari something that has been readily apparent as he attempts to secure a spot on the FIBA World Cup team: Im on a mission. The mission is in the embry onic stages but Rose admitted he might not have ever reached this place re-discovering joy and making it to the side of the light if it werent for that right meniscus tear on Nov. 22 that again robbed him of the game. Instead of anger and devastation, Rose developed a greater appreciation and an understanding that he needed to embrace all that the game could provide, the miseries and the victories. It changed with the second injury, Rose, 25, said. I knew that I couldnt be mad or be in that place for a whole year again. So I really attacked my rehab and it really was fun this time. The rst time it was hell. This time it was hell, too. But I was able to enjoy it a little bit more, seeing that improvement. Rose was withdrawn after he tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in April 2012 and spent most his time rehabilitating alone while also bonding with his young son, P.J. As Rose sat out the entire 2012-13 season, he endured criticism for taking too long with his recovery and shook his head at the baseless rumors about his imminent return. He wisely, for the sake of his basketball future, never succumbed to the pressure to come back before he was ready. I knew in my mind that if I wasnt right, I wasnt playing, said Rose, who made everyone within the organization aware of his situation. They left it up to me, so I appreciate that.Rose back from dark sideBy MICHAEL LEEWASHINGTON POST BASKETBALL Chicago Bulls star nding game again in training camp with Team USAAP PHOTOChicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose speaks with the media after a USA Basketball minicamp practice Monday in Las Vegas.

Not just from back surgery, but from making bogeys. Woods bounced back with birdies all three times that he made mistakes, opening with a 2-under 68 on a soft, gentle day for scoring at Firestone. It left him four shots behind Marc Leishman of Australia, and hopeful that this time he can build on a solid start. Woods opened with a 69 at the British Open two weeks ago, only to plunge down the leaderboard the rest of the week at Royal Liverpool. I hit a lot of good shots, Woods said. I dropped shots at three holes out there today (and) got it right back on the very next hole. For so many players, the opening round of this World Golf Championship felt like either a warm-up or an audition for bigger events to follow. Ryan Moore was among three players at 65, a good start for someone looking for one big week to get him on the Ryder Cup team. Two more Ryder Cup hopefuls Patrick Reed and Francesco Molinari of Italy were among those another shot back. British Open champion Rory McIlroy, who next week will chase his second straight major, was among the leaders until not paying attention to packed sand in a bunker that sent him to a double bogey late in his round. He still wound up with a 69. Watney leads Barracuda Championship: In Reno, Nev., Nick Watney made nine birdies in a bogey-free round in the Barracuda Championship to take a two-point lead in the modified Stableford event. Watney earned 18 points at Montreux Golf and Country Club. Geoff Ogilvy and Tim Wilkinson were tied for second. Johnson takes leave of absence from golf: In Akron, Ohio, Dustin Johnson is taking a leave of absence from golf to seek help for personal challenges, a swift end to his season that will keep him from playing the PGA Championship, the FedEx Cup playoffs and the Ryder Cup. In a statement from Hambric Sports Management, the 30-year-old Johnson said his leave of absence was effective immediately. It did not indicate how long he would be out, though agent David Winkle told the PGA of America he would not be at the PGA Championship next week.

The Sun /Friday, August 1, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 vice president Andrew Friedman knows what hes doing. His history is too good. His resume includes too many good trades to declare 12 seconds after this one that he just swung and missed. He has always managed to turn these veteran salary dumps into pretty good swaps. First off, you cannot forget or dismiss the position Friedman and the Rays are in. They dont have enough money in the bank to keep Price long-term. They dont have enough money period to do a lot of things. These types of trades and how the Rays run their organization are dictated by budget constraints. Its really important for us and its a cliche, I know, and I say it all the time, Friedman said, to have one eye on the present and one eye on the future because, if not, you fall off the cliff. And to fall off the cliff means ve, six, seven, eight, nine, ten years of rebuilding. For us to be able to sustain success over the longterm, these are decisions we have to make. Remember that point. The Rays didnt want to trade Price. They had to. As far as the trade itself, no matter who the Rays got in return, fans were going to be disappointed. There was going to be no player in the deal as good as Price. The Rays became immediately worse as soon as the trade was nalized. The already long and bumpy road to this years playoffs just got even longer and bumpier, no doubt. Whenever you trade a superstar such as Price, fans want to hear that you got the other teams best prospect. Maybe theyve never seen or even heard of the player, but they want an assuring title, such as Baseball Americas No. 1 prospect or The next Miguel Cabrera. Or even the good old, Cant miss label. Well, you will not nd any of those encouraging titles here. This isnt like when they got Wil Myers, whose minor-league player of the year sticker had you excited for the trade. Instead, the Rays went a different route. In the past, when theyve made such deals, theyve picked up Triple-A ready players, such as Myers, Chris Archer and Jake Odorizzi players on the verge of taking the next step to the majors. And players who eventually came up and made major-league contributions. This time, the Rays split the difference. They went with a pitcher who can come in immediately and a prospect who is still years away. And another guy in the middle. Lets start with Drew Smyly, a left-handed pitcher who already is in the majors. Is he a drop-off from Price? Of course, he is. But he is only 25 with an arrow that is pointing up. He has 35 major-league starts and a career ERA of a respectable 3.46. Not only is he going to step into the rotation this season, but he will give you another four-and-half-years at a reasonable price. Hes not going to win a Cy Young, but if the Rays could afford Cy Young winners, they wouldve kept Price. Smyly should be a mainstay in the Rays rotation for years. In addition, the Rays acquired Willy Adames, certainly the wild card in this deal. He is an 18-year-old hotshot who some obviously, Friedman among them believe can be special. Hes a kid, so you dont know for sure. Maybe he turns out to be the next Starlin Castro or maybe he turns into the next Tim Beckham. But so far, the reports are promising. He is off to a good start with his professional career and might be a gem. In the middle is Nick Franklin, a former rstround pick whom the Rays have coveted for a while now. He looks like a left-handed-hitting Sean Rodriguez, but Friedman sounds more optimistic than that. In the end, was it the kind of deal that makes you want to rush out and buy season tickets? Probably not. This trade does not seem to be going over well with most. Friedman knows that. We have to do what we feel is in the best interest of this organization even when it might not be popular in the moment, Friedman said. Friedman couldnt wait. The time to deal Price was now. The offers were not going to get better in the offseason. This was the best deal that t into the Rays philosophy that he could get. He had to take it. Dont surprised if turns out to be pretty good after all. At least better than you think.JONESFROM PAGE 1PORT CHARLOTTE Baseball fans werent the only ones closely following developments as the MLB trade deadline passed on Thursday. The Charlotte Stone Crabs players and coaches were following the news on the clubhouse televisions and discussing the various moves with each other as well. Were interested. You want to see whats happening the big leagues and you dont know if anybody in the clubhouse is gonna be traded or not, outelder Marty Gantt said. Its kind of exciting. You dont want to see any of your buddies get traded, but at the same time, it means that somebody really wants them. The Stone Crabs were taking batting practice when the Rays traded David Price to the Detroit Tigers, and Stone Crabs public address announcer Josh Grant read the details over the PA system. None of the Stone Crabs were involved in Tampa Bays trade. However, there may still be an impact this season. The Detroit prospect involved in the deal, Willy Adames, was playing for West Michigan in the Midwest League. He was assigned to Bowling Green by the Rays. The move sparked a discussion about which team has the best starting rotation: the Tigers or the Oakland Athletics, who traded for Jon Lester earlier in the day? Both of those rotations are obviously stacked, Charlotte outelder Johnny Field said. I was watching ESPN this morning and they were saying that with the As getting Lester, the four top starters all have under-3 ERAs, so thats pretty dominant. Field eventually decided the Tigers have the better rotation because they have the three most recent Cy Young Award winners and more postseason experience. Gantt, who brought up the topic in the rst place, agreed. Theyre both really great rotations, the As are a little bit younger, he said. But Ive gotta go with the Tigers, theyve got four No. 1s (Rick) Porcello is no slouch, he can go out there and dominant a lineup on any given night. If you go into a ve-game series with them, (youll be) lucky to win two or three.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or zmiller@sun-herald.com.Crabs ponder trade impact FLORIDA STATE LEAGUE: Charlotte By ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITER DREW SMYLYPOSITION: Left-handed pitcher AGE: 25 HT./WT.: 6-3, 190 SEASON: 21 G (18 GS), 6-9, 3.93 ERA, 1051/3 IP, 111 H, 31 BB, 89 K CAREER: 106 G (35 GS), 16-12, 3.46 ERA, 2752/3 IP, 255 H, 81 BB, 262 L FAST FACTS: Moved back into starting rotation this season after strong year in bullpen in 2013.

Charlotte produced one more shutdown inning in the top of the ninth inning. Marty Gantt singled in a run in the bottom of the eighth, and Zach Cooper pitched a perfect ninth. That closed a sweep of Tampa and gave the Stone Crabs their sixth consecutive win and ninth in the last 10 games. Harrison allowed three runs on four hits and three walks in six innings, but did not allow a base runner after the third. I didnt really have a go-to pitch when I fell behind, but I started getting my change-up over the plate and that allowed me to throw my other pitches with conviction, Harrison said. It freed me up a little bit. The Stone Crabs broke the game open in the fourth when an inningending double play turned into a three-run error by Cito Culver. Charlotte loaded the bases on three straight singles before Querecuto hit a lazy grounder to Culver at shortstop. Culvers throw to second base flew into right field, allowing all three runners to score and Querecuto to advance to third base. Querecuto scored on another error by Culver, whose throw to first pulled Greg Bird off the bag. Bird tried to tag Johnny Field, who was initially called out, but the umpires huddled and overturned the call. Ive said it all season, we havent had a lot of breaks, luck hasnt been on our side, but we took advantage of their mistakes, Sandberg said after the game. Were playing well; were winning games and a lot of calls and things are going our way. Its nice to be on this end of things because for a long time, like a month or two, things werent really going our way. Jose Alberto Molina allowed two hits and a walk in 123 innings, before Cooper entered the game and struck out Angelo Gumbs to escape a jam. Cooper retired all four batters he faced and struck out two. I think were clicking on all cylinders, Sandberg said. I think early in the year, wed hit but we wouldnt pitch or wed pitch but we wouldnt play defense, but it seems like were playing good defense made a few nice plays, made the routine plays getting timely hitting, taking advantage of the other teams mistakes and getting good pitching.

He is 11-8 with a 3.11 ERA this season, leading the majors in innings (170 23) and strikeouts (189). Price, who was working out at Tropicana Field as Rays ofcials were working on the deal Thursday, told the Tampa Bay Times he was sad to leave. Its tough to put into words, he said. Theres absolute sadness. Price said he did not expect the Tigers to be a potential destination It happened fast and unexpectedly but he was condent he could adjust to a new chapter in his life. Im still playing baseball which is what I know and what I love, he said. The Tigers come to Tropicana Field Aug. 1921, and Price could pitch against his old mates. Thatd be crazy, he said. Thatd be cool. Knowing they couldnt afford to keep Price longterm, and not condent they can make the play offs as they expected this season, the Rays opted to deal the hard-throwing left-hander with 1 13 seasons until he becomes a free agent, to maximize their return. In Detroit, Price will join the rotation with Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, Anibal Sanchez and Rick Porcello. Price makes $14 million this season and projects for a $18 million to $20 million salary next year, and then as a free agent going into 2016 will be set to strike it even richer, in line for deals comparable to the seven year, $175 million pact the Mariners gave Felix Hernandez or the eight-year, $202 million new teammate Verlander can max out with in Detroit. Price was expected to be traded during the past offseason and thought so himself but the Rays decided then to keep him as they invested a franchise high $80 million into a team they believed was a legitimate contender for the World Series. But the season didnt go as planned. Injuries and inconsistent performances left the Rays with the majors worst record (2442) in June, which made it seem obvious at the time they would trade Price and others. Then the Rays embarked on a run, winning 29 of 42 to get within the conversation, if not actual contention, for a playoff spot, making for a more difcult decision. On Thursday, they were 53-55, eight games behind the Orioles in the American League East race and 5 behind Toronto with four teams in the way for the second AL wild-card, and opted to make the deal.PRICEFROM PAGE 1 PRICE HIGHLIGHTS2008: closing out game 7 of ALCS: Having made his debut in midSeptember, Price was used out of the bullpen in the 2008 postseason. In Game 7 of the ALCS against Boston, Price came in with the bases loaded and two outs in the eighth with the Rays leading 3-1 and struck out J.D. Drew. He worked a scoreless ninth that sent the Rays into their first World Series. 2009: first regular-season win: Promoted May 25 after starting year at Triple-A, Price struck out 11 to beat the Twins at the Trop. 2010: All-Star Game start: At age 24, started the All-Star Game for the AL team, working two innings at Anaheim. Had received the most votes of all AL starters from his peers. 2011: 14K performance: Pitching on Aug. 28 at Toronto, he struck out a career-high 14 over seven innings. 2012, 20 wins: Pitching on Sept. 30 at Chicago to keep the Rays slim postseason hopes alive, Price worked seven innings against the White Sox for his 20th win.

Dodgers, 9:10 p.m. BOSTON The lastplace Boston Red Sox have traded pitching for power. Now they can use some name tags to stick on the jerseys of the newcomers. Nine months after winning the World Series, the Red Sox unloaded ve key members of that championship team Thursday. They parted with their best two starters by sending left-hander Jon Lester to the Oakland Athletics and John Lackey to the St. Louis Cardinals. Then they traded lefty reliever Andrew Miller to the Baltimore Orioles. They also dealt away two underachieving hitters. Outelder Jonny Gomes went with Lester to Oakland and shortstop Stephen Drew headed to the New York Yankees. Key players coming to Boston are outelder Yoenis Cespedes from Oakland and right-hander Joe Kelly and outelder Allen Craig from St. Louis. Yankees get Drew, Prado in deadline deals: The New York Yankees acquired infielder Stephen Drew and infielder-outfielder Martin Prado in two deals meant to help boost a foundering offense for a playoff run. Drew was acquired from the Boston Red Sox with $500,000 for Kelly Johnson on Thursday and Prado came from the Arizona Diamondbacks for minor league slugger Pete OBrien and either cash or a player to be named. Were obviously trying to improve our offensive output and give Joe (Girardi) flexible options, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said of his manager. Were going to be asking some guys to move around. Cashman said Drew would start at second base, a position hes never played at the major league level. Struggling second baseman Brian Roberts will be designated for assignment to make room for Drew. The arrival of two more infielders comes about a week after New York dealt for third baseman Chase Headley. The Yankees also obtained pitchers Brandon McCarthy and Chris Capuano in the past few weeks. Braves move for Bonifacio, Russell: The contending Atlanta Braves acquired infielder-outfielder Emilio Bonifacio and left-handed reliever James Russell from the Chicago Cubs for catching prospect Victor Caratini. The Braves also got cash from the Cubs in Thursdays trade. Neither Bonifacio nor Russell played in the Cubs 3-1 win over Colorado earlier in the day. Russell was in the Cubs bullpen when the trade was made. He hugged several of his teammates and coaches and slapped hands with a few fans as he exited while the game was going on. Emotional Cabrera says goodbye to Cleveland: Asdrubal Cabreras voice choked with emotion and his eyes filled up with tears. For the second day in a row, the contending Indians traded a valuable veteran. Cleveland sent Cabrera to the Washington Nationals for infielder Zach Walters. Cabrera, a switch-hitting shortstop and two-time All-Star, made his major league debut with the Indians in 2007 and had spent his entire career with Cleveland before the deal.Red Sox trade five at deadline MLB: TradesLester, Lackey among players shipped out at deadlineBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS REDS 3, MARLINS 1Cincinnati AB R H BI BB SO Avg.

Reds starter Johnny Cueto (12-6) struck out nine and allowed one run in seven innings and Ryan Ludwick drove in two runs. Aroldis Chapman pitched the ninth for his 24th save. Giancarlo Stanton hit his 25th home run for Miami and Tom Koehler (7-8) took the loss allowing two unearned runs in seven innings. With the Marlins leading 1-0 in the top of the eighth, the Reds loaded the bases with one out. Bryan Morris got Todd Frazier to y out to right elder Stanton whose throw to the plate easily beat Zack Cozart for what appeared to be the nal out of the inning when catcher Jeff Mathis tagged out Cozart, who trotted in without a slide. However, after a 6-minute, 10-second instant replay review, the call was overturned because Mathis was ruled to be blocking the plate and Cozart was called safe tying the game 1-1. Marlins manager Mike Redmond was immediately ejected after throwing his hat to the ground and arguing with the umpires. Redmond kicked his hat on his way back to the dugout for good measure. Ludwick took advantage of the good fortune and followed with a two-run single to give the Reds a 3-1 lead. Phillies 10, Nationals 4: In Washington, Ben Revere tied a career-high with four hits and Philadelphia defeated Washington despite starter Cliff Lee leaving in the third inning with an elbow injury. Cubs 3, Rockies 1: In Chicago, Jake Arrieta struck out seven in seven innings, leading the Chicago Cubs over Colorado. Arrieta (6-2) allowed one run and three hits in his first victory since June 30 at Boston. The 6-foot-4 right-hander has a 1.73 ERA in his last 11 starts, holding opponents to a .162 batting average. Cardinals 6, Padres 2: In San Diego, Shelby Miller and three relievers combined on a three-hitter, and Oscar Taveras hit a two-run homer for St. Louis, which beat San Diego to avoid a three-game sweep. Mariners 6, Indians 5: In Cleveland, Mike Zuninos two-run homer in the eighth inning lifted Seattle over Cleveland. Bryan Shaw (4-3) walked Kyle Seager to start the inning before Zunino hit a 2-0 pitch into the left-field bleachers for his 17th home run. White Sox 7, Tigers 4: In Detroit, Moises Sierra had four hits, and Jose Abreu and Adam Eaton added three apiece to lift the Chicago White Sox over Detroit. Ronald Belisario (4-7) got the win in relief, and Jake Petricka pitched the ninth for his sixth save. Royals 6, Twins 3: In Kansas City, Mo., Alcides Escobar hit a two-run triple and Yordano Ventura pitched seven effective innings as Kansas City defeated Minnesota. Blue Jays 6, Astros 5: In Houston, Nolan Reimold homered in the top of the ninth inning and Toronto rallied late to defeat Houston.

The Sun /Friday, August 1, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 5 ORLANDO While UCF might be on the heels of its most successful football season in school history, the only thing that UCFs players wanted to be lingering as they opened preseason camp Thursday was the hunger it took to produce it. UCF will begin the 2014 season with its strongest tail wind to date coming off last seasons 12-victory, Fiesta Bowl-winning campaign. With just a month to prepare for the Knights Aug. 30 season opener in Ireland against Penn State, they also understand there is little time to dwell on the past. Coach told us last night when we got in our meeting that last season is over with, Knights senior linebacker Terrance Plummer said. If we want to be able to enjoy that type of success again, then we have to work hard like we did last year. That all started in camp, it all starts the rst day and it carries on. So I hope guys dont have that mindset (thinking about last season) I know I dont. The Knights return nine starters on defense and six on offense, but were still picked to nish second in the American Athletic Conference preseason poll behind Cincinnati. They were also left a few slots out of the Top 25 in the preseason USA Today coaches poll released on Thursday. Its not a glaring omission, considering the departures UCF did have were at key positions. The biggest hole to ll will be at quarterback and running back, following the departure of Blake Bortles and Storm Johnson to the NFL. At quarterback, Bortles left behind a group of potential-lled, but inexperienced candidates to succeed him. Knights coach George OLeary originally planned to name his successor by the end of the spring season, but in the end decided to keep the competition open. He reiterated on Thursday that he remains in no rush. Ill let you know when Im gonna name one, its not a big secret, OLeary said. Ill let you know when I feel comfortable about somebody. Everybodys trying to get a jump on it. My wifes gonna be the rst one to know. And shes out of the state, so good luck. Sophomore Justin Holman is the only player on the Knights roster to get any game snaps last season, having appeared in three games. But the competition is wide-open. Others vying to be Bortles replacement are redshirt freshman Pete DiNovo, freshman Tyler Harris, and local high school-product Nick Patti, a redshirt sophomore back in Florida after transferring from Boise State. Senior offensive lineman Torrian Wilson said though it was just Day 1, he was encouraged by what he saw out of all four candidates. All of them are ghting. All of them are competing, Wilson said. Its great competition so far for the rst day. They all want to play. So they all have that ght in them so far.OLeary not worried about QBBy KYLE HIGHTOWERASSOCIATED PRESSKnights still looking for replacement for Bortles COLLEGE FOOTBALL: UCF COUNTDOWN TO KICKOFFS26Days until the college football regular-season opener on Aug. 2728Days until the high school regular-season opener on Aug. 2934Days until the NFL regular-season opener on Sept. 4 Sports on TVAUTO RACING11 a.m. FS1 NASCAR, Sprint Cup, practice for GoBowling.com 400, at Long Pond, Pa. 3:30 p.m. FS1 NASCAR, Sprint Cup, pole qualifying for GoBowling.com 400, at Long Pond, Pa. 5 p.m. FS1 ARCA, ModSpace 125, at Long Pond, Pa.BASKETBALL9 p.m. ESPN Exhibition, United States mens national team, Blue vs. White, at Las VegasBOXING9 p.m. ESPN2 Champion Thomas Williams Jr. (17-0-0) vs. Gabriel Campillo (23-6-1), for NABO light heavyweight title, at Shelton, Wash.CANADIAN FOOTBALL LEAGUE10 p.m. ESPNEWS B.C. at CalgaryGOLFNoon TGC Champions Tour, 3M Championship, rst round, at Blaine, Minn. 2 p.m. TGC WGC, Bridgestone Invitational, sec ond round, at Akron, Ohio 6:30 p.m. TGC PGA Tour, Barracuda Champion ship, second round, at Reno, Nev.MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL7 p.m. MLB Regional coverage, N.Y.

The university red Jonathan Waters last week after a two-month investigation concluded he knew about, but failed to stop, a sexualized culture of rituals that included students being pressured to march in their underwear and to perform sexually themed stunts that yielded often-explicit nicknames. Waters halftime shows are considered revolutionary. Videos of the morphing and dancing images the band creates on the eld have drawn millions of hits on YouTube and landed it in an Apple commercial. Waters detailed the changes he was trying to make in a seven-page document prepared when the university began investigating allegations of sexual harassment within the band. His attorney released the document Wednesday night. Waters said he instituted leader ship retreats for section leaders and staff; hosted a national hazing-prevention event; ensured the bands formal dance was alcohol-free; and disciplined students who were behind an under ground band newsletter, the Trip-Tic, that had grown increasingly vulgar.TENNISIvanovic advances to Bank of the West quarters: In Stanford, Calif., Ana Ivanovic advanced to her first Bank of the West quarterfinal, beating qualifier Carol Zhao 6-1, 6-1.

Page 6 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, August 1, 2014 Anthony Leach, who played with Brooks from peewee ball through high school. There was never a doubt he was going to be great. Brooks grew up in a modest brick house in a modest neighborhood in a modest military town just east of the Alabama border. His mother, Geraldine, was loving but rm. She fed Brooks and his friends peanut butter and jelly sandwiches but expected them to leave the home spotless. She was so beloved that when she died in 2007, her family had to move the funeral to a larger church to accommodate everyone. She always wanted me to have an attitude of humility, Brooks said. No matter what I did in life, to approach it as a humble approach. His parents made sure he got the message in elementary school after they heard he was clowning around in class. The antics werent acceptable, not for an oldest child who had to set an example for his little brother and sister and was expected to be a top student. So Brooks stepdad walked into class one day and paddled him right there in front of everyone. Since then, he changed his approach to the classroom setting, said Dave Wilson, Brooks high school defensive coordinator. Instead of wearing baggy clothes, he wore slacks or khakis. If a teacher didnt have an answer to one of his questions, Brooks expected a solution the next day. Although he rode the bench on the high school baseball team, he was too strong willed to quit. Not wanting to waste the two hours during games, he headed to the end of the dugout, cracked open his books and studied. He was just so far ahead of the curve, said Leach, who went on to play cornerback at Tennessee-Martin. He saw the bigger picture. Football was only part of that picture but a big part in his 59,000-per son hometown. When Brooks entered high school in 1987, Smith had become one of the nations all-time leading rushers for Nichols across town at Escambia High and was on his way to a record-setting NFL career. Escambia Countys eight public schools were amid an 11-year run of seven state championships and four runner-up nishes. More than 12,000 fans crammed into 8,700-seat stadiums. Only the strong survived by the time he came along, said boxing great Roy Jones Jr., who graduated from Washington High a few years before Brooks. And he was strong. On a defense for which almost every starter earned a scholarship, Brooks quickly became the focal point. Nichols remembers Florida States then-defensive coordinator, Mickey Andrews, running out of a lm session saying the linebacker was better than anyone he had at FSU. And Brooks was only a sophomore. Brooks helped take Washington High to the 1989 Class 5A state semis as a junior, returning the rst punt of his career 65 yards for touchdown in a playoff win over Winter Park Lake Howell. By the time he was a senior, Wildcats coaches left Brooks alone in the middle of the defense with one job: nd the ball. He amassed 29 sacks and almost 300 tackles during his last two seasons, and the accolades poured in. National defensive player of the year. The 1990 Dial Award as the nations top male scholar-athlete. Washington High displayed his No. 22 jersey in its trophy case before he even graduated. On national signing day, the Pensacola News Journal predicted his photograph would one day hang beside the Olympians and military ofcers on the schools wall of distinction. With Brooks work ethic, who would doubt it? He was just not going to be denied, Nichols said. Whatever it took, he did it and a little bit more to make sure. When Nichols was ready to leave school after a long day, Brooks would be in the weight room, begging to nish one more set. In the summers, Brooks and childhood friend Keith Campbell ran 2 miles to school every day to work out and study lm so they knew every offensive wrinkle of every opponent by the time the season started. That drive and personality fostered the natural leadership that could tame the Bucs locker room and helped lead them to their only Super Bowl. Because his home was near a boundary between schools, he learned how to interact with people in different settings. His demeanor let him critique teammates while earning respect, not resentment. And he was just as comfortable with the athletes as the straight-A students. Campbell remembers joining Brooks as two of the only football players in a tough math course. Brooks challenged him quickly: We will get the best grades in this class. I dont know how much he knows that meant to me personally, said Campbell, who went on to play safety at Mississippi. This town is full of memories like that. Of his friendliness with strangers at church. Of handing out Thanksgiving feasts after Hurricane Ivan in 2004. Of hearing that his alma mater needed a football coach and last winter luring former Florida State teammate Charlie Ward to Washington High all the way from Houston. His name and legacy will always be a part of his hometown, said Ward, the 1993 Heisman Trophy winner. It already is. Brooks framed Bucs jersey rests under NASCAR hoods at the downtown Beef O Bradys. His likeness stares back from a mural on a brick building near downtown alongside famous African-Americans such as Smith, Jones and Martin Luther King Jr. As the local paper expected two decades ago, Brooks photo hangs with the Olympians on the schools wall of distinction not far from the Roy Jones Jr./Derrick Brooks Athletic Complex. And this weekend, that legacy will stretch from the gray brick buildings in his modest hometown all the way to Canton. I told him his mom would be proud of him going into the Hall of Fame, Campbell said. She would have expected nothing else.BROOKSFROM PAGE 1 AP FILE PHOTODerrick Brooks reacts after the defense stopped Washington on a fourth-and-inches during a game in 2007 in Tampa. Since retiring, Brooks has maintained a strong presence in the Tampa area, including starting a successful charter school and owning an Arena League team.

The Dolphins conducted their sixth practice of training camp Thursday and so far Miller has made a strong case in the eyes of new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor and coach Joe Philbin. Miller, entering his third year in the league, led the team in rushing last season with 709 yards and two touchdowns on 177 carries. He also caught 26 passes for 170 yards, which is something that the Dolphins could do more of with the former Miami Hurricane. Jags lose two more receivers: Already without suspended receivers Justin Blackmon and Ace Sanders as well as injured starter Cecil Shorts III (hamstring), Jacksonvilles Tandon Doss, expected to be the teams punt returner, badly injured his right ankle on the final play of practice. Doss screamed in pain as trainers rushed to place his leg in an air cast before carting him inside the facility for X-rays. Making matters worse, rookie Allen Robinson felt tightness in his right hamstring the same injury that kept him out during organized team activities and sat out most of practice. New system in NFL stadiums to measure stats: NFL players will wear trans mitters inside their shoulder pads this season to help measure stats such as how far they ran during a game. The league said it will install realtime location systems in 17 stadiums. The receivers located throughout the venue will collect data including position, speed and distance that will be compiled into a database. Coaches, broadcasters and fans will have access to these next-generation stats during the game. The Zebra Technologies systems will be installed in Atlanta, Baltimore, Carolina, Chicago, Cincinnati, Denver, Detroit, Green Bay, Houston, Jacksonville, Miami, New England, New Orleans, Oakland, San Francisco, St. Louis and Washington. All but two of those stadiums are hosting Thursday night games. Injury report: Baltimore rookie defensive end Brent Urban is done for the season after tearing his right ACL in practice. The injury occurred during practice Wednesday. The fourth-round pick from Virginia tore the ACL of his left knee before and had a bad ankle injury during his senior year at Virginia. Indianapolis left guard Donald Thomas will require season-ending surgery to repair his injured right quad. Thomas also missed most of last season with a torn right quad in Week 2. Thomas, running back Vick Ballard and defensive lineman Fili Moala are all out for the season. Around the nation: Marshawn Lynchs holdout is over, ending one distraction so far for the Super Bowl champions. Lynch arrived at Seattles practice facility following the teams morning practice. The team confirmed Lynch had reported for camp, ending a holdout that spanned a week. Dallas cornerback Brandon Carr is expected to report to training camp soon this weekend after being with his mother in the final days of her battle with breast cancer. Coach Jason Garrett said Carrs mother, Kathy Carr, died Wednesday. Carr was with her in his hometown of Flint, Michigan. Atlanta announced that defensive tackle Peria Jerry, a first-round draft pick from Mississippi in 2009, has retired. No reason was given by the team in its two-paragraph statement. Carolina defensive end Frank Alexander said he will not appeal his four-game suspension for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy. In his first public comments since being suspended on May 2, Alexander said Ive done it, so there aint nothing to appeal.Miller makes case for RB job NFL NOTEBOOKStarting spot with Miami is his to loseBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Ex-Hurricane impresses earlyTAMPA With Tampa Bays crowded competition, receiver Tommy Streeter didnt come into training camp with a lot of hype. But Streeter, 24, the former University of Miami standout, has impressed with his consis tency and play-making. Hes another guy with good size, good speed. Hes been catching the football, Bucs coach Lovie Smith said Thursday. Weve noticed him. Initially, we came into camp, he wasnt one of the guys we were talking an awful lot about. But hes been pretty steady every day. Streeter, 6 feet 5, 215 pounds, was a sixth-round pick of the Ravens in 2012 but missed his rookie season with a foot injury. High praise: The Bucs challenged DE DaQuan Bowers to step up in training camp, and the much-maligned secondround pick from 2011 has delivered, Smith said. Bowers has been criticized around here a little bit, but Ive been pretty pleased with what hes done on the football field, Smith said. Hes done some good things, especially pass rushing inside and outside on first down. Smith said Bowers cracking the regular rotation could help quite a bit.

As a double amputee, Port Charlotte resident Michael Walker once thought his life was over. But with some prosthetic limbs, a little bit of encouragement, and a lot of determination, hes now living life to the fullest. By providing counseling and support to those in need, hes passing on the help that was once given to him and proving that anything is possible. Walker grew up in Commack, Long Island, N.Y., and had always led an active life, even after being diagnosed with diabetes while in his 20s. He enjoyed success as a restaurateur in Albany, N.Y. Then diabetes slowly took over his body. At the age of 39, Walkers amputations began. It started with a few toes. Then half of one foot was removed, followed by half of the other. In 2010, his right leg was gone forever. It seemed as though his spirit had been taken as well. A leg upBy NATALIE SHARBAUGHHERALD CORRESPONDENTHERALD PHOTO BY NATALIE SHARBAUGHMichael Walker got his life back in motion with some prosthetic legs and encouragement from David Kinzer, certied prosthetist with Island Coast O & P. Over the course of the past few years, the two have become good friends. Double amputee Michael Walker gets his legs, and his life back thanks to local prosthetic specialist David Kinzer Nicole NolesEDITORS CORNERnnoles@sun-herald.com As the mom of two teens, the task of driving them around is never far from my mind. Im lucky to have a pretty exible schedule, and a cadre of family members to do transport duty when Im not available. Not everyone is so lucky, though. On top of that, many people in my age bracket have additional responsibilities for transporting their older relatives. Too bad there isnt one countywide transportation service available to young, old and everyone in between. But wait, you say, we have Dial-ARide. Thats true. If you call the day before, you can arrange for Dial-A-Ride to take you where you need to go. But only a small portion of our population can use it on any given day; its not meant to service a large number of riders. It seems odd to me that we, as taxpayers, understand and accept the need for everyone to contribute to the cost of roads and maintenance, but we shudder at the thought of providing mass transit. Its certainly not a handout there are fees to pay, reasonable fees for riders. And no, bus fares wont make mass transit self-sufcient. But we could be getting federal dollars to help offset the cost, and I certainly would pay extra in taxes knowing my teens could grab a bus if they need to go somewhere while Im working. That would save me time, gas and wear on my car. How many people could get a job if we had mass transit? Cars are expensive, and so is insurance and gas. Our entire economy is service-based for retired people living on xed incomes. Why not make their dollars stretch further than the end of their own driveways? Mass transit will cost us money. Are we so scared of spending that we will dismiss cost-effective alternatives for the many to keep serving the few at a higher premium? What sense does that make and what harm does it do to try it? If the naysayers are right, and the costs outweigh the benets, we will nd out soon enough. But if it works and people use the Charlotte Rides system, the whole county wins, and we stop looking like we pander to the few naysayers and ignore the potential benet to the masses in our county.Why dont we share transportation costs?

Austin, Library SupervisorYouth Services of the Mid-County Regional Library said, We have had over 3,000 children and teens come to the library. It is really exciting to have so many in the programs. On the average day, approximately 100 kids a day come to the library; seems like we have additional kids every day. We encourage all kids to come to the library and have fun.

Herald Page 6 Friday, August 1, 2014 His luck had almost run out when Lucky Bones was nearly hit by a truck on a rural road south of Punta Gorda. A good Samaritan who witnessed his near miss picked him up and brought him to the Animal Welfare League. Lucky arrived severely emaciated and anemic. Drastic measures were needed to save his life. Enter our hero, Diesel. Diesel had been at the shelter for more than a year before being adopted by a local family. When they had to move out of state and couldnt take Diesel with them, they returned him to AWL; another stroke of luck for our hapless pooch. Diesel was able to step in and provide Lucky Bones the emergency blood transfusion that saved his life. With lots of good food and TLC, Lucky Bones was brought back to health. There is an unsubstantiated rumor that Lucky Bones diet was supplemented with treats from KFC and McDonalds. Whatever it was, Lucky gained 10 pounds in just over a month. At that point, he was deemed healthy enough to be adopted. Thats when he caught the eye of our next set of heroes.

He arrived severely emaciated and anemic. Mike and Justine Fitzgibbons of North Fort Myers take Gordon on rides in their golf cart.

Animal Welfare League hosts Wash N' Wags fundraiser HERALD PHOTOS BY BETSY WILLIAMSThe Animal Welfare League of Charlotte County, located at 3519 Drance St., o Harborview Road in Port Charlotte, held their monthly benet for July and had volunteers washing and spritzing your favorite canine for a $5 donation. Harland Robinson took advantage of the Wash N Wags event, bringing in his 10-year-old Chihuahua, Mu, for a shower on a small table set up for the smaller dogs. Lorie Schultz watches as her granddog Haylee, 3, was being prepped for her washing by volunteer Stephanie Cox. It took three to shampoo 3-year-old Ray Kyle Krzeminski, Laura Nichols and Patti McCluskey while Rays human, Barbara Bradshaw, watched. Time to shake o that rinse water. Bear-Bear, part Rottweiler, part Labrador, produced enough spray that volunteer Desiree Cox, 16, rises up and falls back in a cringe. Bear-Bear was brought to the benet by his humans, Bill and Wendy Aye. Volunteer Patti McCluskey gently steadies 6-year-old Sophie, brought in by Stan Elliott, while the tiny Chihuahua was being washed. RIGHT: George Hendershot watches as his rescue dog, Buster, gets a hosedown and wash by the volunteers, Kyle Krzeminksi and Laura Nichols. The Basset Hound also receives some very special attention from Nichols as she calms him looking directly in his eyes, using a soothing voice letting the canine know all is well. Four-year-old shepherd Jack and his humans, Judy and Dave Schall, wait under the tent for Jacks turn in the wash area. Friday, August 1, 2014 Herald Page 7 Fort Myers are no strangers to hard luck dogs. They acquired Amos, a potcake dog, from a rescue that had brought him to Massachusetts from the island of Bimini. Amos and his brother had been set on re by local island boys. Amos recently passed away at the age of 13, after a long and happy life with the Fitzgibbons. So the Fitzgibbons traveled to the Animal Welfare League to nd their next rescue. Lucky Bones now has a new name and a new life. He answers to Gordon, in honor of NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon. He spends his days riding on the golf cart and sleeping in the middle of the bed with Mike and Justine at night. That Gordon is one lucky dog. This happy ending will be complete when Diesel nds his forever home. Stop by the shelter and meet him. He loves adults, children, other dogs, and is serious ly fascinated by cats. Like most super heroes, Diesel is also housebroken. Thousands of Charlotte Countys homeless animals are brought to the Animal Welfare League each year. Many are still waiting for a new home. If you are inter ested in adopting a pet, visit the shelter at 3519 Drance Street in Port Charlotte, or visit www.awlshelter.org.

Friday, August 1, 2014 Herald Page 9 Although Walker was physically unable to work and generate an income, he was denied disability. They said I wasnt sick enough, Walker said. He did qualify for food stamps, but he was not able to receive the insulin that was so desperately needed. Physically, he kept getting sicker. Mentally, he was on a downward spiral. Over the course of four years, Walker had spent a total of 18 months in the hospital. Various operations were performed to save his left leg. Shortly after moving to Port Charlotte in 2011 to be with his family, Walkers leg became seriously infected. There was a chance that the infection could move to his heart. They said, if we dont take the leg, youre going to die, Walker said. So they took the second leg. Walker, who had been athletic for most of his life, was completely devastated. After losing both legs, life in a wheelchair seemed like a death sentence. His weight soon skyrocketed to more than 400 pounds. I pretty much thought my life was over, Walker said. I went into a deep depression. I was sitting around watching TV, eating and feeling sorry for myself.Walker gets his legs, and life, backIn 2013, Walker met a man who helped change his life. David Kinzer, a specialist in orthotics and certied in prosthetics, would provide Walker with the legs and inspiration needed to get his life back on track. I met David and he was such an upbeat person, continued Walker. He said, Ill have you up and walking around in no time. And to be honest with you, the day I put those legs on I walked out of his ofce. The process wasnt easy though, as it required far more than just a pair of legs. With Kinzers help, Walker was able to change his entire outlook on life. After some pep talks, tough love, and a few motivational phone calls, Walker found the willpower he needed and started moving with ease. Since then, hes been unstoppable. At the age of 46, Walker is now able to drive without hand controls. He goes to the gym six days a week, has lost over 140 pounds, and is learning mixed martial arts. He also loves to go dancing whenever possible. If they have karaoke, Im there, said Walker.Science and psychology paired with prostheticsWhile Kinzer is certied in prosthetics and orthotics, he admits that a little bit of psychology is an important part of his job. Although he was largely responsible for the change in Walkers life, he remains humble and credits Walker with his own success. Its rewarding to see someone go from point A to point B. But he did it on his own, said Kinzer. I was just there to provide him with the tools and some motivation and encouragement. Motivation and encouragement are what Walker needed most. Just like him, many people with illnesses or other challenges could benet from some encouraging words from their healthcare provider. But more often than not, those words are never spoken. It happens a lot in health care. You see a doctor and theyre so busy that theyre in and out of the room. If theyd spend a couple of minutes and say a little bit more, it could lead to a life change, Kinzer said. Not everyone does that, and some think its a lost cause. But sometimes people just need help from another person who they might not expect the help to come from. And while Walker was grateful for his new legs, it was the encouraging words from Kinzer that helped make all the difference. Hes faced a lot of adversity, not just with the amputations but with other illnesses, and that can be heartbreaking. Sometimes its easy to give up but he never did, said Kinzer. To see that degree of change in a persons life and be part of it, thats pretty cool. Over the past few years, the two have become close friends. Kinzer, who is now with Island Coast O & P in Port Charlotte, continues to work with new clients. Walker helps out whenever he can as a motivational speaker. By giving testimonials and describing his own personal experiences, he provides hope to others who lost limbs by letting them know that there is life after amputations. Dont let anything stop you from your dreams. I had dreams of living a normal life. I decided that I was too young for my life to be over, continued Walker. I thought I was never going to date again. Now Im in love with a beautiful woman, and she loves me. In addition to helping other amputees, Walker has also started a nonprot organization called Mikes Thursdays Child where he serves on the board of directors. The group is dedicated to helping individuals with grief or challenges of any kind, including drug and alcohol addiction. Walker, who once struggled with addiction, has been sober for many years. You do a lot of self-medicating when youre feeling sorry for yourself. When I nally woke up and stopped doing that, I got sober, said Walker. I help as many people as I can today. And while helping others, Walker uses three simple words that can apply to anyones problems. Nothing sucks forever. They might think that its so bad right now and its never going to get better, but I believe that nothing can suck forever, he said. Youre either going to come to terms with it or its going to work itself out. For those who are fortunate enough to meet Walker, its impossible to ignore the positivity he radiates. Its so infectious that youll forget what you were worrying about. By overcoming the adversity that once faced him, he now serves as living proof that anything is possible. Hes made it his lifes purpose to pass on words of encouragement that were once given to him by a man who he thought was just going to make him a pair of legs. Dont give up on what you want to do, no matter what your challenge is, added Walker. You can do whatever you want to do. You just have to put your mind to it.

Herald Page 12 Friday, August 1, 2014 Do you remember when?The following are excerpts from the Daily Herald-News from July 26, 1974, through Aug. 1, 1974: Glasser retires as Daily Herald-News publisherJoseph G. Glasser, publisher and general manager of the Daily Herald-News since 1969, today announced his retirement from the newspaper. Glasser said he was leaving the newspaper to start his own advertising agency. Since he became publisher, the paper has undergone several important changes. In 1969, the newspaper converted from the old-style letter press to printing to computerized offset production. A year later, the paper changed from a weekly to a daily publication and soon became Floridas fastest growing newspaper. It has been an extremely difcult decision to reach, but my interests lie elsewhere, Glasser said. This is one of the nest organizations I have been associated with, especially the members of the Daily Herald-News family. Glasser has spent 25 years in the advertising and publishing elds. Before coming to Charlotte County, he was business manager in Metro Newspapers of Cleveland, Ohio. Glassers wife, Patricia, is coordinator of education for the Charlotte County school system. The retirement is effective today. A successor will be announced tomorrow.Light local voter turnoutCharlotte County appears headed for one of the lightest voter turnouts as a combination of bad weather and disinterest kept voters out of polling places. Supervisor of Registration, Tosie Hindman, today revised downward her estimate of the turnout to about 30 percent or less. Local residents are voting whether to abolish the Development Authority, in addition to re and light district questions.Marine prospect growing brighterThe prospect of the proposed Punta Gorda marina grew brighter Tuesday. Mayor Phil Laishley asked the county commissioners to deed the old bridge to the city. The structure now is owned by the county. The south part of the old bridge pilings is of prime interest to city planners. They have been working with the Greenleaf-Telesca Corporation of Miami, in drawing plans for a future marina incorporating use of the bridge supports. The city has proposed that the new marina be constructed as a recreational facility for Punta Gorda and county residents. A separate restaurant-marina project has been proposed for the west riverfront area by the Nightingale Friends.Earlier flood program soughtDuring a special meeting today, County Commissioner Robert Shedd will propose that the county seek admission into the federal ood insurance program immediately. Originally, the board set Dec. 31 as the date to get into the program. The commission also observed that the recent heavy rains and ood conditions have made all county residents aware of what could happen in a case of a serious ood. County zoning regulations are prohibiting the building of county structures, except at the specic levels of elevation. This was pronounced by the Corps of Army Engineers several years ago and has already been adopted by the Charlotte County Commission. Johnson gives time to plan good growthC.R. Tiny Johnson wants to save the Florida that attracted him here. For more than two years, he has been serving free as chairman of the city-county regional planning council, working toward this endeavor. Johnson attends most governmental meetings in the county and Southwest Florida, reads up on environmental and planning laws and confers with executive director Terry Hixson on a regular basis. How to manage growth and insure retention of the communitys natural character? One of the rst regional planning council projects was working toward establishing a 16,000-acre, harbor-river coastline of aquatic preserve. The council has turned its attention to housing, land use and populations. Then there is water, a major concern in the development. I like to work in the planning of the future of our county, having seen in other places what can happen when un-planning was the case, said Johnson, a California native. He and his wife lived and worked for years in Long Grove, Illinois, before moving down to Port Charlotte in the mid s.Shorter school days approvedStudents in the Charlotte County school system will have shorter days this fall with the exception of Charlotte High School. This is planned despite the fact that a petition with more than 100 names was presented to the Charlotte School Board by Mrs. Olvie Weaver on behalf of a group of parents. Weaver has children in fth-grade and in junior high school. She stated, You are only asking to shorten the school day by 30 minutes now. But we have heard that the Classroom and Teachers Asociation might ask for a four-day week at a future time. C. Durfee Marshall, board member, suggested that Thomas E. Benner, superintendent, perhaps would like to re-evaluate his position. I konw administration and teachers wont shortcut our children, Marshall said. But, we, as board members should listen to both sides. The subject was tabled for further discussion in the near future.Water training courses scheduled by Girl ScoutsIn cooperation with Charlotte Girl Scouts, the local American Red Cross chapter will hold several aquatic training courses in August. All instructors will be qualied by the Red Cross, with sailboats and canoes being furnished by the Scouts. The courses are open to anyone who has completed the ninth-grade and is at least 15 years old. Adults who can pass the swimming requirements are also welcome.Letter to the EditorDear Editor: A volunteer reman is not much different from any other man. He has a home, wife and children. The biggest difference is when the re phone rings, he leaves his home and family to put his life on the line for you and your property. It makes no difference if it is Christmas or 3 oclock in the morning, he is there. The only thing he wants from the people of Charlotte County is to have their vote of thanks. This would be all the pay he would ever ask for. Stop and think what you get for the price. Kenneth W. Greene, Port CharlotteToday in history Aug. 1 In 1789: The U.S. Congress established the forerunner of the State Department the Department of Foreign Affairs.

This past weekend offered a litany of fun for the whole family, such as the annual Pirates Fest at Fishermens Village, which encouraged visitors to dress in their best pirate gear as they enjoyed the three-day festival. Then there was a community basketball tournament organized by St. Mary Primitive Baptist Church at New Operation Cooper Street Learning & Recreation Center, where fellowship and a little friendly competi tion was promoted. Earlier in the week, youngsters attended vacation Bible schools and various camps, each offering a healthy dose of fun while teaching new skills and information. And lets not forget about the ever-popular Corks n Canvas event, which paired an art lesson with a glass of wine in a warm, friendly environment.

Friday, August 1, 2014 Herald Page 3 The Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce is commemorating the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Charley on Aug. 9 during a game at the Charlotte Sports Park, 2300 El Jobean Road, Port Charlotte. The event is meant 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. Both ticket levels are box level. For a ticket to the game, the cost is $9. For $19, tickets include an all-you-caneat 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 at 941-639-3720. A portion of the proceeds of each ticket sold will go to Project Illumination an initiative 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. Just added into the mix is a pre-party from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Aug. 4 at Hurricane Charleys Raw Bar & Grill, located at 300 W. Retta Esplanade, near the Punta Gorda Waterfront Hotel. During this event, youll get the oppor tunity to drop by and purchase your tickets directly from us we will accept cash, checks or credit cards. The party will feature a special happy hour of hurricane cocktails and some complimentary hors doeuvres. Hope you all can make it.Benefits of membership with the PG ChamberAs the Punta Gorda Chamber prepares for its annual retreat next week, we have been looking at what sets the progress of the chamber apart from neighboring communities. We are often misconstrued as a government entity or a tourism ofce, when what we are is a local organization with a primary goal of continuing the interests of its membership while advocating on behalf of the business community at large. A chamber of commerce is not a governmental body or institution, and it has no direct role in the writing or passage of laws and regulations that affect businesses. It does, however, act as a lobby to represent the interests of its members. This chamber focuses on networking and business-to-business referrals as its primary resource, while ensuring that we have the appropriate committee structure to affect change and to make things happen. Added to this, we have become synonymous with major events, like the annual Wine & Jazz Festival, our biannual arts and crafts fair on Sullivan Street, the Lighted Boat Parade (now in its 25th year), the annual Pops Concert at Florida SouthWestern State College and many more. These events attract guests to the city and allow us the opportunity to bring new consumers to our business community. By walking into the Punta Gorda Chamber, strategically located at the corner of West Marion Avenue and Sullivan Street, youll nd an abundance of member information, ranging from event information and local restaurant menus to newcomer information and phone books. We have an e-newsletter that is produced every Friday morning that promotes the events and promotions that our members are hosting, as well as our own happenings. Called the Friday Facts, the newsletter is sent to more than 5,000 accounts and is shared on the chambers website by an additional 2,000 people per week. As a member of the chamber, event promotion is free a valuable tool not to be forgotten. Simply get your infor mation to us by 2 p.m. every Thursday, and well do the rest. Our mantra here at the Punta Gorda Chamber is twofold: rst, membership doesnt cost, it pays; and, two, if you are not having fun, dont do it. Our networking events are heavily attended, and we have a dedicated team to make sure you are never left on the perimeter of the room like a wallower. In a world where more than 60 percent of consumers believe that chamber membership shows good business practice and good reputation, we are here to serve our members and to offer the public a dedicated referral service. If we cant help with your inquiry, we make sure that you are connected to the right people who can help you, whether it be City Hall, our local tourism bureau or another entity that might be better served to help you with your question. We thank you for all of your support and encouragement that has helped us go from strength to strength.

Herald Page 4 Friday, August 1, 2014 When Sandra Ruhland lived in Ludwigshafen, Germany, she and her husband, Rainer, would always attend the local wine festivals. So it is no surprise they made it a point to stock as many varieties of wine as they could in addition to German beer when the couple opened their restaurant in December 2011. About two years ago, Rainer started a Mug Club, where members pay a yearly fee and get a personalized 25-ounce mug so they can enjoy their favorite brew for just $5. That is when Sandra Ruhland decided to start a wine club. One night, a customer said she heard we were offering a wine club, she said. They come in every Wednesday for dinner. Although she is in the Mug Club, she told me she might want a glass of wine with dinner instead of a beer. She became our rst member. To date, the wine club boasts about ve members, but Sandra believes it will grow as soon as the word spreads. For an annual fee of $65, individuals receive their ofcial personalized Sandras Punta Gorda Wine Club glass, ve vouchers that include 25 percent off all Sandras merchandise, a free bottle of house wine with a purchase of two dinners, free glass of wine with purchase of one dinner, plus other specials. For our members, all house wines are $4 and imported wines are $5 per glass, she said. Wine glasses will be stored here and must be signed out by the owner if taken from the restaurant. They will receive our e-mails detailing our specials and events. In the future, we plan to hold wine tastings and appetizers as well.

Sandra Ruhland said they have ve house wines and 13 German, Italian, Austrian and French imported wines. We carry pinot grigio, chardonnay, merlot and cabernet sauvignon in the house wines, she said. For the imported, we have many Kallstadt wines, Dornfelder, a red wine; a Grauburgunder, a white; and Weissherbst, a rose.

Friday, August 1, 2014 Herald Page 7 Tucked in one corner of the 9,000-square-foot Galleria Mall Antiques & Collectibles, located at 5260 Duncan Road in Punta Gorda, is a most unique collection of memorabilia. Chairs, a dining room table, photographs and other items, owned by Sandra Lansky, are neatly stacked for visitors to peruse and purchase. Who is Lansky you might ask? She is the daughter of one of the most well-known mobsters in American history Meyer Lansky. His friendships with Benjamin Bugsy Siegel and Charles Lucky Luciano aided him in becoming one of the most powerful men in the Mafia. I call this my mob room, T.C. Dorler, owner of the Galleria Mall, said. I have known Sandra for years. My ex-husband and her were in business together all legitimate. Dorler said Sandra Lansky has written a book about growing up with a mob boss entitled, Daughter of the King: Growing up in Gangland. The book, published in February, contains some fascinating vignettes of some of the most notorious underworld figures at that time. It is on sale for $26 at the shop. Its a great read, once you pick it up you cant put it down, Dorler said. During prohibition, Meyer Lansky and Siegel ran a tight-knit operation and became millionaires. In those early days, Siegel saved Meyer Lanskys life several times, something he never forgot. But, when Siegel ran afoul of the other mob chieftains, he was killed in a gangland slaying on June 20, 1947, in Beverly Hills, Calif. Even as influential as Meyer Lansky was, he could not save his friends life. Dorler said Sandra Lansky had a tough life, although she could have just about anything money could buy. She lived in a lavish penthouse on Central Park West, went to supper clubs, like Dinty Moores, the 21 Club and the El Morocco, and took horseback riding lessons in Central Park. She got anything her little heart desired, Dorler said. Among the items for sale at the Galleria are Sandra Lanskys 1945 dining room table and chairs, accompanied by several photographs of Meyer Lansky sitting at the table when he visited his daughter. I sat in the chair once, Dorler said. Sandra said to me, You know, you are sitting in my dads chair. He always sat at the head of the table when he visited me. Because of her love for Italian greyhounds, many of the plates, saucers and statues for sale have an image of the sleek racing dog on them. The writing table she used has a secret compartment built into it as well. Every piece sold comes with a letter of authenticity, Dorler said. Growing up with the other Mafia bosses, whom she refers to as uncles in her book, proved to be quite inter esting for Sandra Lansky. In her book, she recalls an evening when she and her father had dinner with Uncle Willie Moretti, the underboss of the Genovese family. A few days later, she was shocked to read the headline in the paper: Mob Boss Exterminated in N.J. There was a photo of a man on the tile floor of a bar, a pool of blood around his head, Sandra Lansky wrote in her book. There was a caf sign above the body, Chicken in the Rough, $1.50. I ran to the bathroom and threw up. Dorler said Lansky absolutely hates the HBO series Boardwalk Empire but liked the Sopranos because it was realistic. She also enjoyed the Godfather movies. In the Godfather II, the character Hyman Roth, played by actor Lee Strasberg, was based on her father. Although viewed by many as a notorious Mafia kingpin, Meyer Lansky was a devoted father to his daughter. Like she said in her book, her dad was the most intriguing of all the Mafias founding fathers, Dorler said.

Herald Page 8 Friday, August 1, 2014 startling the animals to run from the cave. Instead, what he heard was the sound of something breaking. That night he told his fellow shepherds about his nd. They decided to investigate at daylight, thinking they may have stumbled upon a treasure. The following morning they went inside, but were disappointed. What they discovered were 10 ceramic jars. Nine of them were empty, but in the last one was a bunch of leather-bound bundles of very old and foul-smelling papers. Little did they realize what they found that day would turn the archaeological world on its ear they were seven of the Dead Sea Scrolls, ancient writings that would ultimately be of tremendous historical and religious signicance. On July 23, Steven Derer, Ph.D., an international educational consultant, public speaker, archaeologist, historian, researcher, teacher and writer, presented a slide presentation entitled Mysteries of the Dead Sea Scrolls: 65 Years of Rediscovery at Florida Gulf Coast University, Herald Court Centre, 117 Herald Court, Suite 211, Punta Gorda. The lecture series is a part of the schools Renaissance Academy, a lifelong learning program for adults. According to the Renaissance Academys website, www.fgcu.edu/ racademy, the program is based on the premise that learning should never cease, that keeping the mind intellectually, creatively and culturally active fundamentally enriches and invigorates our lives. This is one of the best-kept secrets in Punta Gorda, Derer said. My father said, When you stop learning, youre dead. It keeps you sharp. Nancy Staub, program manager, said that the academy has been in existence for the past four years and offers a diverse number of classes and lectures for residents to choose from. The program is a great way for like-minded folks to meet and keep their brain active by learning new things, she said. Thirty-one people signed up for this class, which includes lunch. The price range for the courses varies. It was a wonderful turnout. Derer, who has visited Israel on more than 50 occasions and has been on six excavations, said archaeology of the Biblical world is only 150 years old. Archaeologists were denied access to these important sites by the Ottoman Empire, but they were nally opened during the mid-19th century. These discoveries put esh onto the bones of the written text, he said. We get a better picture of the ancient world because of the scrolls. Initially, the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls went unnoticed for months. They hung in the Bedouins tent until they were eventually sold to a dealer in Bethlehem for $20, then to the Syrian Christian Church for $97. They were sent to William F. Albright, a noted and trusted Biblical scholar and archaeologist from John Hopkins University, who authenticated them. Because the British Mandate was ending, travel between the different sectors in the region became difcult. Mar Samuel, metropolitan and archbishop of the Syrian Orthodox Church, had to ee the country when war between Israel and the Arabs broke out after the state of Israel was created on May 15, 1948. He eventually made his way to the United States. He was instrumental in selling the scrolls after, amazingly enough, he placed an ad in the Wall Street Journal on June 1, 1954. The Dead Sea Scrolls were purchased for $250,000 by an unknown buyer that buyer turned out to be Israel. Three of the scrolls were extremely important Isiah Scroll, Habakkuk Commentary and the Manual of Discipline. The vast majority were written in Hebrew, some in Aramaic and a few in Greek, Derer said. Most were written on parchment, a few on papyrus and some on copper. Derer said the Isiah Scroll is an incredible nd because it was relatively intact and is 1,000 years older than any previously known copy of the Book of Isaiah. In fact, the scrolls are the oldest group of Old Testament manuscripts ever found dating from the third Century BCE, or Before the Common Era. Today they are housed on the campus of the Israel Museum in an area called the Shrine of the Book, he said. The top of the museum is shaped like the lid of a pottery jar. The Isiah Scroll on display is actually a copy. The real scrolls are kept underneath the museum. Derer said the Dead Sea Scrolls have signicant religious and historical value for the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths. Christians and Muslims have their origins in the Judean religion, he said. The Dead Sea Scrolls are the most stellar of archaeological discoveries. Bill and Betty Koenig, rst-timers to a Renaissance Academy lecture, said they really enjoyed the class and would return if a topic interested them. We traveled to the caves of Qumran for our wedding anniversary, Bill Koenig said. We also visited the museum where the scrolls are kept.

Friday, August 1, 2014 Herald Page 9 It wasnt a battle between good and evil. Rather, it was Old School vs. New School, with a basketball court as the battleeld. On July 26, the laymen at St. Mary Primitive Baptist Church, 605 Mary St., Punta Gorda, played host to a threeon-three, half-court, co-ed basketball tournament at the New Operation Cooper Street Learning & Recreation Center, located just across the street. There were four players on each team for the two age groups: Old School, with players 35 years old and older, and New School, with players 34 years old and younger. They competed to see if experience could overcome youth. These young guys think the older guys cant play, but its a mind thing, said Terrel Sylver, a church member and longtime volunteer at the community center. You can outsmart people, you dont have to be the most athletic to be a good player. The event was also a way to get people in the community out for a day of fellowship and fun. Our whole goal was to get the community out and get involved aside from what normally happens in the community, said Darrell Gadsen, deacon at St. Marys. Our kids arent coming out again, and thats the goal. This community is theirs. Sylver said events like this are a welcome sight, especially since the center and basketball had such a positive impact on him. Its been a while since weve done something like this here. I remember it used to take just a kid with a ball to get a game of basketball here, Sylver said. Were trying to play music and let (people) know were still here and trying to teach the same things that were instilled in us. Its where I came from. I loved this place, I love the scenery, I love where its at, said Chris Stephenson. Maybe by seeing us play, it will help get them away from Instagram or Facebook. While there werent as many teams as Gadsen had hoped, it was still a great turnout as church members enjoyed the music and entertainment under the pavilion. The event, which served to raise funds for the church, featured live music played by local groups and singers, as well as food and several vendors. But the star was basketball, and the teams battled until the promised Old School vs. New School game nished, which was won by the young whipper snappers with their air for outside jumpers. You didnt really think you could beat us, did you? laughed Stephenson, a former Charlotte High School basketball player and member of the winning team. Sylver said the church, by opening its arms to the community, did its job to bring it closer together. The thing about the church is to come outside the walls and reach out and let people know were here, Sylver said. The pastor of St. Mary is Isaac Thomas.

Friday, August 1, 2014 Herald Page 11 From our archives 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 July 26, 1974, through Aug. 1, 1974:Glasser retires as Daily Herald-News publisherJoseph G. Glasser, publisher and general manager of the Daily HeraldNews since 1969, today announced his retirement from the newspaper. Glasser said he was leaving the newspaper to start his own advertising agency. Since he became publisher, the paper has undergone several important changes. In 1969, the newspaper converted from the old-style letter press to printing with computerized offset production. A year later, the paper changed from a weekly to a daily publication and soon became Floridas fastest-growing newspaper. It has been an extremely difcult decision to reach, but my interests lie elsewhere, Glasser said. This is one of the nest organizations I have been associated with, especially the members of the Daily Herald-News family. Glasser has spent 25 years in the advertising and publishing elds. Before coming to Charlotte County, he was business manager in Metro Newspapers of Cleveland, Ohio. Glassers wife, Patricia, is coordinator of education for the Charlotte County school system. The retirement is effective today. A successor will be announced tomorrow.Light local voter turnoutCharlotte County appears headed for one of the lightest voter turnouts as a combination of bad weather and disinterest kept voters out of polling places. Supervisor of Registration Tosie Hindman today revised downward her estimate of the turnout to about 30 percent or less. Local residents are voting whether to abolish the Development Authority, in addition to re and light district questions.Marina prospect growing brighterThe prospect of the proposed Punta Gorda marina grew brighter Tuesday. Mayor Phil Laishley asked the county commissioners to deed the old bridge to the city. The structure now is owned by the county. The south part of the old bridge pilings is of prime interest to city planners. They have been working with the GreenleafTelesca Corporation of Miami in drawing plans for a future marina incorporating use of the bridge supports. The city has proposed that the new marina be constructed as a recreational facility for Punta Gorda and county residents. A separate restaurant-marina project has been proposed for the west river-front area by the Nightingale Friends.Earlier flood program soughtDuring a special meeting today, County Commissioner Robert Shedd will propose that the county seek admission into the federal ood insurance program immediately. Originally, the board set Dec. 31 as the date to get into the program. The commission also observed that the recent heavy rains and ood conditions have made all county residents aware of what could happen in a case of a serious ood. County zoning regulations are prohibiting the building of county structures, except at the specic levels of elevation. This was pronounced by the Corps of Army Engineers several years ago and has already been adopted by the Charlotte County Commission. Johnson gives time to plan good growthC.R. Tiny Johnson wants to save the Florida that attracted him here. For more than two years he has been serving free as chairman of the city-county regional planning council, working toward this endeavor. Johnson attends most governmental meetings in the county and Southwest Florida, reads up on environmental and planning laws and confers with executive director Terry Hixson on a regular basis. How to manage growth and insure retention of the communitys natural character? One of the rst regional planning council projects was working toward establishing a 16,000-acre, harbor-river coastline of aquatic preserve. The council has turned its attention to housing, land use and populations. Then there is water, a major concern in the development. I like to work in the planning of the future of our county, having seen in other places what can happen when unplanning was the case, said Johnson, a California native. He and his wife lived and worked for years in Long Grove, Illinois, before moving down to Port Charlotte in the mid-1960s.Shorter school days approvedStudents in the Charlotte County school system will have shorter days this fall with the exception of Charlotte High School. This is planned despite the fact that a petition with more than 100 names was presented to the Charlotte School Board by Mrs. Olvie Weaver on behalf of a group of parents. Weaver has children in fth-grade and in junior high school. She stated, You are only asking to shorten the school day by 30 minutes now. But we have heard that the Classroom and Teachers Asociation might ask for a four-day week at a future time. C. Durfee Marshall, board member, suggested that Thomas E. Benner, superintendent, perhaps would like to re-evaluate his position. I know administration and teachers wont shortcut our children, Marshall said. But we, as board members, should listen to both sides. The subject was tabled for discussion in the near future.Water training courses scheduled by Girl ScoutsIn cooperation with Charlotte Girl Scouts, the local American Red Cross chapter will hold several aquatic training courses in August. All instructors will be qualied by the Red Cross, with sailboats and canoes being furnished by the Scouts. The courses are open to anyone who has completed the ninth-grade and is at least 15 years old. Adults who can pass the swimming requirements are also welcome.Letter to the EditorDear Editor: A volunteer reman is not much different from any other man. He has a home, wife and children. The biggest difference is when the re phone rings, he leaves his home and family to put his life on the line for you and your property. It makes no difference if it is Christmas or 3 oclock in the morning, he is there. The only thing he wants from the people of Charlotte County is to have their vote of thanks. This would be all the pay he would ever ask for. Stop and think what you get for the price. Kenneth W. Greene, Port Charlotte.Today in history Aug. 1 In 1789: The U.S. Congress established the forerunner of the State Department the Department of Foreign Affairs.

The Sun Classified Page 10E/N/Cads.yoursun.netFriday, August 1, 2014 ZITSByJerryScott&JimBorgman GARFIELDByJimDavis FRESHLYSQUEEZEDByEdStein DILBERTByScottAdams REXM O R G ANByWoodyW i lsonandTerryBeatty MARYWORTHByKarenMoyandJoeGiellaDEAR DR. ROACH: I am nearing the age of 70 and have been on Flomax (tamsolusin) for benign prostatic hyperplasia (an enlarged prostate) for three years. My ophthalmologist would like me to be on another medicine in order to avoid complications during cataract surgery for patients using F lomax. I raised this issue w ith my regular doctor and received terazosin (Hytrin or Zayasel). My ophthalmologist says this also can affect pupils during cataract surgery, and is being extra cautious even though no mention has been made of surgery in the near future. From my research, this is a common concern. Is there a medicine for BPH that is safe for people with cataracts? V.A.P. ANSWER: T amsolusin (Flomax) is called an alpha blocker, due to the r eceptor it inhibits, and this relaxes the smooth muscle in the prostate, allowing for better urinary ow through the prostate. However, it can cause a change in the eye called IFIS (intraoperative oppy iris syndrome), which increases the risk of complications during surgery. Until r eading this letter and doing the research, I was one of the 96.8 percent of primary care doctors w ho are unaware of this association. Terazocin (Hytrin) also is an alpha blocker, but isnt as strongly associated with IFIS as tamsolusin is. It is believed by surgeons that the effect of alpha blockers can last for months or possibly years, so stopping the medicine r ight before surgery may not help. Most cataract surgeons who themselves have BPH responded in a survey that they would r efuse an alpha blocker if they had any sign of developing cataract, or would get operated on early and then start treatment for BPH. F inasteride (Proscar) and dutasteride (Avodart) are BPH treatments that are not alpha blockers and have not been associated with IFIS. There also are different surgical approaches that reduce the risk of complications in people known to be on alpha blockers. DEAR DR. ROACH: Y ou recently advised an 81-year-old farmer w ho was drinking an energy drink several times a week to stick with coffee in order to avoid the added sugar in the energy drink. What is yo ur opinion of getting an equivalent amount of caffeine through overthe-counter caffeine pills instead of coffee? I am a 55-year-old woman, and except for being overweight, I am in excellent health. I exercise daily, sleep well at night and have no complaints whatsoever. I get about six or seven hours of sleep a night, and am a naturally early ri ser. I do not drink either tea or coffee (dont like the taste), but I have found that if I take one half of a 200-mg caffeine pill immediately on arising, it does wonders for my mood and productivity. On some days I take a second pill in the early afternoon, and rarely, a third in the evening, though never later than 6 p.m. Is ther e anything wrong with this? Ive found that many people who drink several cups of coffee a day seem to look askance at me because I get my caffeine in a pill. A.C. ANSWER: Some people drink coffee for the caffeine; some people drink decaf to avoid the caffeine; most people like both the taste and the caffeine effect. You are unusual in only wanting the caffeine effect. A 16-ounce cup of coffee at a large chain contains 330 mg of caffeine. I dont see anything wrong with taking caffeine pills the way you are. However, some people wont sleep well if taking as much as you are. Dr. Roach regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but will incorporate them in the column whenever possible.

Here are some Heloise hints to help take care of your car at home and save some big bucks over the long run: Many people use household products (mild dish soap or even hair shampoo) to wash the cars at some point. Some of these can be harmful to the paint and nish. The wrong product can dull the nish. Be sure to use products specically designed for washing cars, and rinse very well! Dont use abrasive cleaners on plastic or painted parts of your car. Dont wash or wax your car in direct sunlight! Try to wait until the evening or early morning, when the sun is not beating directly down. Dont let bird droppings, insects, gasoline or tree sap sit on the nish long! Wash them off as soon as possible to avoid damage to the paint. Dry using a chamois, microber towel or a soft terry towel. HeloiseTra vel hintDear Heloise: I carry an empty travel-size spray bottle and ll it with w ater when I get to my hotel room. Each night I check the following days clothing, and if it needs a little freshening, I spritz it down on a hanger and pull it from the edge to release wrinkles. It works great and is dry by morning. Mary D ., Yorba Linda, Calif.Secure sliderDear Heloise: I recently moved into a condo that has a sliding glass door. I was looking for a little more security without having to spend a ton of money. I went to a home-improvement store and had a large, wooden dowel cut to t the track. Now I just slip it in, and I dont have to worry about anyone being able to open the door. Jessica, via emailT oilet-brush botherDear Heloise: The bottom of my toilet-brush holder always had a little bit of water in it. I tried placing paper towels in the bottom, but I was having to replace them every time I used the brush. I nally found something that worked. I placed a dry sponge in the bottom. It soaks up all the moisture, and I dont have to replace it that often.

HOROSCOPE DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have a lake house and invited a couple (close friends) to join us for a few days. The husband has cancer and has been taking chemo. We wanted them both to rest, as the wife is his only caregiver. We all thought this would be a wonderful opportunity to r elax and enjoy nature. The second night they we re there, the husband w ent to bed very early and the three of us were visiting. At one point, my friend w ent into the kitchen. When she didnt come out, I went to check on her and found her close to a diabetic coma. It was very frightening. S he hadnt eaten much dinner and her blood sugar had crashed to a dangerous level. Fortunately, we knew what to do because my dad was diabetic. We we re an hour from the nearest hospital and had no cell reception. We did not know where her medication was. My friend was making no sense and couldnt r emember. I want to respect my friends privacy, but if you travel with someone you know has a medical condition, is it OK to ask where they keep their meds in case of an emergency? How do y ou approach the subject? CARING FRIEND IN CALIFORNIA DEAR CARING FRIEND: Of course its OK. And a perfect way to lead up to that question would be to r elate the story you have written to me. DEAR ABBY: My husband, for the most part, is a happy-go-lucky, funny person during the day. But once we sit down to dinner, he starts criticizing and making mean comments about me. Once dinner is over, hes back to being pleasant. I have addressed this with him to no avail. I have tried ignoring his comments, changing the subject, asking calmly for him to make his concerns known before or after rather than during the meal. I have suggested we eat dinner away from the table or separately. I have sought the counsel of a therapist and tried implementing her suggestions. I am at my wits end. Im a we ll-educated, good person, a good wife and co-provider. I do not understand why he acts this way at the dinner table. Your thoughts, Abby? ITS ALL GOOD, UNTIL ... DEAR ITS ALL GOOD: When someone tells me, Its al l good and then describes a marriage in which her husband beats her down emotionally once a day, I have to wonder what her denition of good is. For whatever reason, yo ur husband appears to be trying to punish you for something by deliberately upsetting you every evening. Was it his behavior that caused you to seek counseling or something else? I ask because I think the wrong spouse may have seen the therapist. Unless HE decides to get help and nd a healthier way of channeling his anger/frustration, nothing will change, because as it stands, there have been no consequences for his actions.
