Chures il r aleyBy AL HEMINGWAYSUN CORRESPONDENT Churches around Charlotte County, and especially in Punta Gorda, sustained heavy damage. SUN FILE PHOTOSSacred Heart Catholic Church in Punta Gorda sustained heavy damage, as is visible in this aerial photo. www.yoursun.com CHARLEY 10 Years LaterAugust 13, 2014 Editors note: The Sun is taking a look back as we near the 10th anniversary since Hurricane Charley roared into Charlotte Harbor. Well bring you a story each day, culminat ing in a special insert in Wednesdays paper that you dont want to miss! As the Rev. Stephen Mock, pastor, drove down Marion Avenue the morning after Hurricane Charley, the rst thing he could see was the bell tower of the First Presbyterian Church of Punta Gorda, located across the street from City Hall. That was a good sign, he said. But, as I got closer, I could clearly see that the roof over the sanctuary had collapsed and the north roof had blown off. My heart just sank. Mock said he can recall his immediate reaction as he thought to himself, Well Lord, you wanted us to renovate. So, I guess this is as good a time as any. As Charley threatened the western coast of Florida a decade ago, Mock said they took the necessary precautions to protect their church. Concerned about ooding, sandbags were strategically placed around the entrances and duct tape was placed on windows. He also took REBUILD | 7It was 10 years ago this week. I was leaving a meeting of newspaper publishers in the Midwest. The weather news held my attention. A modest-sized hurricane was headed up Floridas west coast and might graze Tampa. If it should pick up speed, it might close the Tampa airport before I arrived. The afternoon skies were clear, but by the time we set down, the streets of Tampa were jammed with people going home to board up or to leave town for safer inland cities. A knowledge of Tampas back streets proved helpful, as I avoided trafc jams and headed home to Venice. David and his team in Charlotte had boarded up to be on the safe side, as had the folks at our Venice Gondolier ofce and pressroom. Charley fooled us with a preference for the warmth of shallow water, rather than the deeper Gulf. The morning of Friday, Aug. 13, 2004, the storm moved over Sanibel Island and headed up the Intracoastal Waterway, picking up intensity as it moved north. David and Debbie, with a small crew, were awaiting the blow in our Charlotte Sun plant. Several of the staff had brought along family members, on the assumption that our building was safer than their homes. In Venice, I watched the storm coverage as it moved north. Power to our plant went out, and I used a cellphone to keep David informed, as my TV gave a remark able view of the storms progress and the number of small tornadoes within the larger hurricane. It is cutting over to the Peace River, I told David. There is a tornado that ought to be over your building in about 10 minutes. They were enjoying the relative calm as the eye brushed over them. Our photographers were outside taking pictures of fallen and uprooted oaks. David called them back in and they crowded together in the interior lunchroom away from any windows and doors that might come off. Charley was small, compact, fastmoving and vicious. Never mind Tampa and the Gulf Coast. Charley followed the Peace River inland, demolishing mobile homes and ripping off roofs in Arcadia, Wauchula, Bartow and Lake Wales. It generated mini-tornadoes that ripped large oaks from the ground and twisted them like tops. Charley spawned a thousand stories, of surprise, of close calls, of devastation and ruin. Of families that left town and never came back. It is a story of recovery, of neighbor helping neighbor, of the rush of outside assistance by state and federal organizations, of citizens banding together, determined to rebuild a better city and county. With power gone, we were offered press time by Bradenton, Sarasota and Fort Myers. Sarasota had leased a large generator in storm preparation. We were able to move it to Charlotte and get our press back in operation in the weeks it took to repower the whole area. Many of our carriers had left town. We asked those who remained, some of whom were temporarily without shelter, to forget about learning subscriber ad dresses, and just deliver to every residence that looks habitable. The paper carried lists of services. It told where doctors, whose ofces had been damaged or demolished, could be reached. The paper provided similar infor mation day after day for other services. A boom followed as many millions of insurance dollars and federal assistance poured into rebuilding a community that quickly regained its condence in the future for this special slice of Florida.

The man said the womans ailing husband had a warrant out for his arrest through the local Police Department because he owed $2,040 to the IRS. The woman contacted the Punta Gorda Police Department. An ofcer visited her July 3 at her home and spoke with the caller. The policeman told the woman the caller seemed like the real deal, a PGPD report shows, but he told her she should follow up with the local IRS ofce to conrm that. But after the police left, the man kept calling the woman, whom he reportedly pressured into going to a local Walgreens and purchasing a Green Dot MoneyPack loaded Just hang upBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITER Costly phone scam fools officer too As the Aug. 26 primary draws near, the Sun will be publishing profiles of candidates for County Commission, Airport Authority, School Board and state races. Today, information about those vying for Charlotte County Airport Authority District 2 can be found on page 2. Early voting in Charlotte County runs from Monday through Aug. 24. For more voting information, visit www. charlottevotes.com. HANG | 4Charlotte County Public Schools ofcials hope voters will approve the extended 1-percent local-option infrastructure sales tax, in order to upgrade security at area schools. Some of the older schools in the district can be accessed at many different points, said Chris Bress, chief technology ofcer at the school district. However the district is hoping to change that with around $1 million in sales tax dollars, he added. The funds, if approved by voters, would be used to create a single secure entrance at the front of the schools, similar to what is in place at Port Charlotte Middle School, he said. The funds would also be used to close other entrance ways, to ensure that visitors access the school from the front, main entrance only, Bress said. We would have to do some reconstruction of the halls to create this single entrance, he said. Its basically building a new entrance. Bress was unsure exactly how long it would take to complete the project if voters approved the penny sales-tax extension during the Nov. 4 General Election. It would most likely be done when students arent in the school, to minimize interruptions, he said. The project would be very difcult to undertake if the sales-tax extension is not approved by voters, Bress added.Tax dollars key to school security upgradesBy PAUL FALLONSTAFF WRITERUPGRADES | 4 2014Charlotte salestax extension AND WEEKLY HERALDCharlotte Sun VOL. 122 NO. 222An Edition of the SunAMERICAS BEST COMMUNITY DAILYSUNDAY AUGUST 10, 2014www.sunnewspapers.net $2.00 705252000753 Sunday Edition $2.00 US STEPS UP IRAQ EFFORT POLICE GO G.I.

Notice to Calendar Event Submitters Q: Why did you decide to run for this seat? A: I was encouraged by numerous Charlotte County residents and community leaders who know my background would be an asset to the governance of the (Charlotte County) Airport Authority, which inherently contributes to the countys economic growth. Q: What do you hope to accomplish? What are the big issues you see that need tackling? A: The accomplishments of the Airport Authority (in the) past and current history and are not arguable. I believe I have the energy and vision, as evidenced by my experience and accomplishments of record, to provide input in meeting the challenges that the growth of the airport and county are met. I am concerned that the Airport Authority has not pursued adequate revenue sources, common to airports, to maintain nancial stability to support its forecasted growth and its future development in a timely manner. Airport growth and expansion (create) additional, and many times unforeseen, nancial burdens. The airport has gone very rapidly from a general aviation facility to a commercial service airport, which needs to be seen as a front door to Charlotte County, reecting all that we have to offer. We need to work on customer service, not only to airline passengers, but (also) to the general and corporate aviation users, enhancing the airports image. Establish a better communications vehicle for airport users on pending authority decisions. Q: What makes you more qualified for the post than your opponent? A: Thirty-two years as the director of aviation, Springfield/ Branson National Airport (in) Missouri; and, prior to that, as the assistant to the director of the Indianapolis Airport Authority. Accredited Airport Executive (A.A.E.) by the American Association of Airport Executives, and recipient of their Distinguished Service Award, one of 50 to ever receive this recognition. Airport Council International Board Member representing U.S. airport interests at worldwide conferences and meetings. Testied before the U.S. Congress regarding federal aviation legislative issues. Currently providing services as an aviation technical consultant/expert witness for Chicago and Philadelphia aviation law rms. Compiled by Brenda Barbosa Q: Why are you running for re-election? A: Since I have been on the board, I have encouraged airline service to Punta Gorda. I want to see it continue and move forward, and entice another airline to go to a hub for further destinations. Q: What do you hope to accomplish? What are the big issues you see that need tackling? A: We are working on the expansion of the terminal to accommodate more passengers and stay debt-free. We are identied as a foreign trade zone airport, and I would like to be present and work on this project when the need arises. Q: What makes you more qualied for the post than your opponents? A: When I came on the board, we were just a general aviation airport. Since that time, I have helped to get the tower and both terminals built. I have 40 years of experience in general aviation, and 7,000 hours of ight time in singleand multiengine aircraft. I was appointed by the (Federal Aviation Administration) as a ight safety counselor for 12 years. I investigated and reported on aircraft accidents in this country, Canada, South America, Europe and Africa for 25 years.

North Port Fire Marshal Michael Frantz has spent the last two years gaining more knowledge about resources and prevention services for juveniles who have found themselves on the brink of a criminal record, and is working to bring more local reghters on board for the cause. North Ports Youth Fire Setting Prevention and Intervention program was established by Frantz in 2012. Frantz is the sole trained re personnel member who can lead the program locally. Before the interventions can begin, however, the re marshal has to get a full team of ofcials in order. Twenty-ve re personnel and law enforcement members will come to North Port for a four-day training course for the intervention program. Locally, two re inspectors and three reghters from North Port Fire Rescue will undergo four days of training, along with re personnel from Englewood; Punta Gorda; and Sarasota, Charlotte and Manatee counties. Following their training, these reps will be able to return to their respective forces to establish YFSPI programs. I got the idea from Manatee County, so with the exception of them, North Port is, I believe, the only municipality to have this program in place currently, Frantz said. Im happy to help provide services and resources to any one of these other departments. Its not a one-person job to teach these kids it takes everyone. With the addition of newly trained ofcials, the program will be able to more efciently aid youths facing criminal charges. Ofcials will be able to talk to juveniles who have been charged with arson and work on mitigation, prevention and intervention, Frantz explained. Upon completion of the program, a juvenile could possibly have his arson charge dropped, depending on the courts decision. According to Frantz, North Port has an issue with juvenile arson, prompting him to establish the citys program two and a half years ago. It is a big problem in North Port, because there is little to do here. We dont have a movie theater, a bowling alley, a public pool, miniature golf so the kids do things to create their own adventures, he said. Theres an awful lot of wooded area here and they go there to occupy their time. The consequences of res can be life-altering. Last week, the city re department put out a small re started by a youth playing with reworks in a wooded area near his home. It was started by Roman candles. It wasnt huge probably 50, 60 feet wide but if someone hadnt seen it and we hadnt got there, it would have been huge probably 4 or 5 miles, Frantz said. The department is taking the next step in re prevention and services while allowing offenders the opportunity to learn from their mistakes. During these classes, we give them a dose of reality. They see testimonials from burn victims, parents, schools. We show them huge consequences, which usually come down nancially on the parents. It can be quite devastating, Frantz said. We also have the family sit in on these. We teach parents how to recognize signs of behavior and to keep the home safe things like putting lighters up in a cabinet instead of on the coffee table. Siblings come in to show them they can be in their brothers seat if they make a decision to abuse re. An offense doesnt have to be the point at which a family seeks help, however. The child doesnt have to set a re rst; this is intervention. If a parent notices little Johnny likes to play with matches and is concerned, then we will denitely intervene, Frantz said. For more information on the intervention program, resources or services regarding re safety, contact the city Fire Rescue administration ofce at 941-240-8150.Email: sgholar@sun-herald.comArson-intervention training brings in firefightersBy SAMANTHA GHOLARSTAFF WRITER ELECTION0020 1 -41

Our Town Page 4 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE with the money allegedly owed to the IRS. The woman gave the caller the information from the prepaid cards. The call was a scam. The woman lost the money. And her ill husband, whom the scammer targeted, died shortly thereafter. The PGPD cut the fraud victim a check for the roughly $2,000 out of which she was defrauded. This citizen called the police as we tell them to when she thought something wasnt right, PGPD Operations Commander Capt. Tom Lewis said. In the end, she was a victim. We felt that, under the circumstances, we could have done more. Tuesday, a special agent with the U.S. Department of Treasury reported to local law enforcement that he learned the scam artist had called from India, and the suspects possibly were trying to crash the server to end the operation. Other local phone scams have originated in Jamaica, Mexico, Australia, Canada and around the United States. The scams of today will evolve, as they already have from years ago, Lewis said. To avoid detection, (scammers) use proxy servers when doing email scams; (and) use devices that alter the caller ID display making the caller believe they are local when phoning a scam. The IRS scam is just one example of the phony calls going around. One that weve been seeing involves (Florida Power & Light), said Sgt. Eric Burke, who heads the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce Economic Crimes Unit. Burke said the scammer will call and claim hes with FPL, and that the company is going to shut off the targets power unless they provide payment via a prepaid card, like the Green Dot card used in the aforementioned IRS scam. I dont know of any legitimate company that requires payment from a Green Dot card, Burke said. If a caller asks you to pay for anything with a specic type of prepaid card, that should tip you off. Lewis has some other advice for those who may be receiving suspicious calls. The biggest tip to avoid being a nancial victim is, do not provide any information over the phone. Period, Lewis said. As soon as someone mentions Western Union or Green Dot card or another prepaid card, call the police.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comHANGFROM PAGE 1We really dont have the funds, he said. Wed have to try to delay other projects if we tried to do this. Visitors at schools would be able to enter the building, but then would have to go through another secure entrance to gain access to the rest of the school. The security measure would be installed in nine schools that currently do not have it, superintendent Doug Whittaker said during a previous inter view. That would include four elementary schools, two special centers, two middle schools and a high school, he said. Bress added that the security measures are needed in a post-Columbine world. This is a very important project, he said.UPGRADESFROM PAGE 1COSTThe estimate to install secure entrances at nine area schools is just over $1 million. The funds would be used to install secure entrances at four elementary schools, two special centers, two middle schools and a high school.

In 2008, the bubbly stay-athome mom was kidnapped, raped and murdered by a stranger in North Port. She was just 21. Not a day goes by that Nathan doesnt keep a promise to Denise and their sons. He vowed to x the 911 system that failed his wife after she tried to escape from her abductor Michael King, who held her at gunpoint. Critical information given to the CCSO dispatch center during Denises kidnapping was not broadcast to anyone during the two-county manhunt for his wife. Nathan says that should never happen again. After forming the Denise Amber Lee Foundation, Nathan met many people in the communications industry willing to help make signicant changes. Today, Nathan and a small team travel to 911 telecommunications conferences. While networking, Nathan offers to teach an eight-hour course. This year, more than 20 agencies who want to enhance their 911 operations have invited Nathan to share Denises horric story and ongoing efforts to create universal standards for training in the industry. In September, Nathan will go to Louisville, Ky., and then to Spokane, Wash. Then its in to South Dakota, and then Portland, Maine. He will go to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, in November. I have 16 more training courses left through November, said Nathan, who now works full time for the foundation. I travel a lot. I go to Texas a lot. I share Denises story, which includes the breakdown in communication, how the call never got out to the deputies looking for Denise, and the timeline. Geoff Weiss, a 20-year veteran supervisor in telecommunications, teaches the course with me, he said. He reached out to me after seeing Denises story air on Dateline in 2008. He talks about lessons learned, and leadership and supervision. We speak to anyone from dispatchers to managers in the call center. In addition to his massive travel and teaching schedule, Nathan is a part of the 911 National Training Requirement working group. We have been communicating every Monday, he said. A group of six to 10 dispatch and re/EMS and other major groups throughout the nation in the 911 telecommunication industry work together. We are creating legislation that will help create standards that are universal. All states have a standard level of training for 911 operators and call takers. States like Washington want to strengthen standards, but theres no one universally accepted standard. By creating this language, it will help agencies go to their legislators and pass the universal standards for operators and call takers. Nathan plans to work with the group three more times through conference calls and in person to try to nalize the language by the end of the year. We are all going to meet together in Orlando, he said. It will be monumental if we can (get) it together and working in all states. The power of this is astronomical.

The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 7 PHOTO PROVIDEDEdgewater United Methodist Church in Port Charlotte was unable to use its worship center after the storm and did not move back until December 2012.SUN FILE PHOTOMany turned to faith after Hurricane Charley and attended services outdoors since a lot of churches were damaged by the storm. God really provided for us. The Rev. Stephen Mock, pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Punta Gorda PHOTO PROVIDEDThis is Edgewater United Methodist Church in Port Charlotte now after being rebuilt.the church records to his home in Deep Creek. As luck would have it, the Category 4 storm moved rapidly and the church suffered very little water damage. We took a lot of our electronic equipment out of the ofces, Mock said. My ofce had some water damage. But we were lucky in that respect. Mock said they held their rst services the Sunday following the hurricane in the parking lot at Harvey Street and Marion Avenue. Although many of the parishioners were still trying to get their lives back in order after the destructive storm had departed, about 150 attended. Sister churches, St. Andrews Presbyterian and Burnt Store Presbyterian, loaned chairs, generators and tents that Sunday. We used Burnt Store Presbyterians Fellowship Hall for 18 months, Mock said. We eventually decided that we could not rebuild on our site so we relocated to the former Italian-American Club on Airport Road. God really provided for us.A lot of miraclesWhen the Rev. Isaac Thomas, pastor of the St. Marys Primitive Baptist Church in Punta Gorda, rst saw what remained of the building, he was sick. We could not drive any further than the hospital, so we had to walk the rest of the way, he said. The church was gone. The walls were still standing. That was unbelievable. Thomas said the roof was torn off and it appeared that everything inside was sucked out of the top where the roof had been everything that is except two items the pulpit and the Holy Bible. All I kept asking myself is, What do I do now? he said. Then Thomas was told to look at the page the Bible had been turned to and read it. It was a passage from the Book of Jeremiah in the Old Testament. It said, and I am paraphrasing, I am the God you had in Jerusalem and I am also the same God of Babylon, Thomas said. That meant to me everything was going to be all right. Even though our church had been destroyed, God will see us through. Thomas said his spirits were lifted and when he met with the church leadership the following week, they decided to rebuild and come back stronger. We need to be a church now, he told everyone. Then things began to fall into place, according to Thomas. The house located directly behind the church was razed and they were able to acquire the property at a reasonable price. The land the church owned along Ida Street was not used prior to Hurricane Charley. Once the new building was erected, that land became the back parking lot. For 16 months the congregation met at St. Martins Missionary Baptist Church before moving to the Recreational Center. In 2007, the sanctuary and ofces were completed and the parishioners began holding services there once again. Thomas said they are now in Phase III of the expansion and are building a new dining room, kitchen and a balcony on the new two-story structure. I believe God had a plan in place for us, Thomas said. There were a lot of miracles.Neighbor helping neighborAcross the river, another Presbyterian congregation was enduring similar hardships. Those at the First Presbyterian Church of Port Charlotte, located on Hariet Street, had made their preparations and were hunkering down as the hurricane pushed further into Charlotte County. Custodial Supervisor Jack Leonard said they lost part of the roof over the sanctuary, the steeple roof on the school and the portico, plus numer ous trees were uprooted. When the eye of the storm passed over and it quieted down, we could see that the metal roof had wrapped around the steeple, Leonard said. When it was over, the high winds had picked it up and tossed it in the church parking lot. Leonard said the church sign, situated on the corner of Hariet Street and Gandy Avenue, had blown over from the terric force of the winds. The old concrete base had to be broken up into pieces, some weighing as much as 200 pounds, and another foundation had to be poured. We had a lot of water damage, he said. Every time it rained, it ooded. We had to make a wooden bridge out of two-by-sixs so the pastor could walk down the hallway. In spite of the storms ferocity, the church got its electricity back in just three days. I lost the power in my house for three weeks, Leonard said. Portable units were brought on the property as temporary ofces and classrooms for the students, according to Leonard. The school moved into the Fellowship Hall and for two weeks no tuition was charged so par ents could drop off their children so they could work on their homes. A lot of the older parishioners took it hard, Leonard said. We checked on some of the homes in our immediate area and helped them put plastic on their roofs, etc. We tried to assist the elderly people, even if they werent from our congregation. It was just neighbor helping neighbor. Leonard said the church was not fully restored until 2007. Even though they had undergone such a terrible blow, he said they rebounded ne. We have a beautiful facility now, he said. And its all up to hurricane code.A pivotal timeAlthough the Edgewater United Methodist Church suffered enormous damage in the aftermath of Hurricane Charley, it was the attitude of the parishioners that Marge Harrington recalls. They were dazed, she said. They didnt know where to go or what to do. Harrington, who is the current director of administration, was in charge of the morning child care program at the time of the storm but lost her job when the building was razed. For the better part of two weeks the church had no power and generators were churning away to operate fans attempting to dry things out, Harrington said. Water was running down the walls like a waterfall, she remembered. The church roof was torn up and all the windows in our van w ere shattered. The windows in the church were ne though. I thought that was weird. Lynn Ball, the director of ministry, was not here for Charley but arrived a few months later and vividly remembers the work being done to get the church back to normal. The building had to be gutted, there was nothing left inside, Ball said. Wires were sticking out of the oor. We had a makeshift wooden stage for the band. It stayed that way for quite a while. It was a pivotal time for our church. Harrington said the lobby was transformed into a temporary wor ship center where the rst services were held immediately following the catastrophic storm. It was later moved into one of the smaller rooms in the building. The food pantry was made larger so we could feed more people, Harrington said. We made clothes closets out of rooms. We downsized quite a bit. The National Guard made ice and water deliveries and the Red Cross served meals as well. Although they were not able to move back to their worship center until December 2012, Harrington feels the adversity they experienced was the best thing that ever happened to the individuals who lived through the hurricane and the restoration. When I look at the pictures of what we accomplished I think we are stronger today because of what we did, Harrington said. It also created a stronger bond between us and the community. Ball agreed, saying it assisted them in staying focused on what is important helping those in need.

Our Town Page 8 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 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.A noisy monster on our doorstepEditor: Most airport authorities are obscure, inconsequential gov ernmental entities. However, the Punta Gorda Airport Authority emerged from the aftermath of Hurricane Charley as an obsessed group of politicians, driven to expand the airport at all costs. The reasons for this are complex. First, the incumbent commissioners, including Don Lee, are one problematic ingredient. They see the airport as their personal legacy, and are intent on transforming what should be only a general aviation airport into a noisy monster, right on our doorstep. Second, the incumbents are backed by powerful local business interests, who have investments linked to airport property development. The chambers of commerce and real estate agents mistakenly view the airport as critical to their success, even though the passenger trafc mostly originates outside of Charlotte County. It is well-documented that real estate values are adversely affected by nearby airport trafc and noise. Nevertheless, to them, airport expansion has become a holy grail. Third, the authority employees, including the talented Mr. Quill, benet greatly from airport expansion, and their compensation rises in direct proportion. They work for the commissioners, and have personal reasons to support airport expansion. Mr. Lee has pushed his air port fantasies at the expense of and against the interests of Punta Gorda residents. When citizen groups complained of jet noise, he even blasted them in the press and at governmental meetings. It is time for Mr. Lee to step aside and allow new blood on the Airport Authority. Please vote for Robert Hancik, an experienced aviation professional.Dick Nelson Punta GordaBetter late on bus eetEditor: It is with amazement that I read where Charlotte County Schools are going to start using CNG for its bus eet. Well, better late than never. Leon County has been using this since 2012. This isnt my rst letter on this subject. Now, as to the project I seem to remember a big gas line being dug in paralleling U.S. 41 back in the late 1990s. TECO ran the line through. Our county commissioners supplied the right-of way and got zilch for it. They could have negotiated spurs to every school in the county which would have let us install the gas appliances at the Champs Cafe in Port Charlotte High School in 2001, instead of the high-cost electric ovens that had to replace them. I note in the story that Nopetro is having to dig lines in from I-75 to the Carmalita Street facility. I guess that makes more sense than digging the lines in from the much closer U.S. 41 pipe. It certainly justies the higher contract price for Nopetro. But, hey, were wasting money every month on Murdock Village so whats a few $100,000 more?John Totten Port CharlotteMango-gate a publicity stuntEditor: Does Chris Constance really have low-hanging mangoes or is something prompting him to make a missing mangoes claim to garner free publicity? The mystery of the month.Ron Esser EnglewoodThanks to all honoring Sgt. WilsonEditor: It was a great honor and pleasure for all of us at Elks Lodge 2153 to welcome, house and feed the Brotherhood Riders Monday as they espe cially honored the memory of Sgt. Michael Wilson. The Brotherhood Riders and their support staff are truly an awesome and dedicated group of rst responders. The welcome and fellowship that we were able to provide was amplied by the community support and generous donations of the following es tablishments in Port Charlotte: Luigis Pizza, Buffalo Wings and Rings, Panera Bread, Moes Southwest Grill, Abbys Donuts and Carrabbas. These establishments also deserve our appreciation.The Rev. Arthur Schute Port CharlotteDont jump to conclusionsEditor: Letter writer asking, Wheres the outrage? Another suggesting: The Venice Airport should be moved. An attorney on the radio anticipated a long, drawn-out lawsuit. Before we stir the pot too much, lets get our facts straight and let the FAA investigate. First, it had nothing to do with the Venice airport. The plane ew from Buchan Field, a grass strip. The FAA will conduct a thorough investigation to see if there was any wrongdoing. Every small plane has to go through a very thorough annual inspection to make sure its airworthy. As a pilot with over 12,000 ying hours, retired USAF, experiencing a sudden engine failure I probably would have made the same decision. At low level, and no power, there are few options. Everything looks much different from the air. Apparently the beach looked deserted; and people are very difcult to see in the water. In addition, it is difcult to see anything in close proximity over the nose of the plane. Finally, pilots y planes for many reasons: Business, hobby or just because they can. Most reduce their costs by joining partnerships. For many of these same reasons people own and operate boats, race cars and motorcycles and also have deadly accidents. Wheres the outrage? Im terribly sorry for the loss of life, but before we burn anyone at the stake, move an airport or start a lawsuit lets see the results of the investigation.Jerry OHalloran Punta GordaProtect US from UN war crimes courtEditor: Elections will be held on Nov. 4. During this midterm election, all 435 seats in the United States House of Representatives and 33 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate will be contested in this election. Get out and vote. A movement has been started by our armed forces to get out the vote in 2014. The president has made the rules of engagement so difcult, that our troops are often killed before they can get permission to ght. Nothing has been done to stop our troops from being murdered by the Afghanis they are training. Now, this president wants the U.S. to sign on to the U.N.s International Criminal Court which would allow the U.N.s ICC to arrest and try U.S. troops for war crimes without the legal protections guaranteed under U.S. law with no appeal. If all Republicans and Conservatives can take back the Senate in 2014, our troops can once again be protected from unnecessary danger. There is a deep disgust and anger growing in the ranks of the military against the incompetence of this president. Join the movement to get out the vote against this president by the active duty, the National Guard, Reserves, the retired and other prior service members. One million military retirees in Florida alone could mean an over whelming victory in this state. I am a Vietnam War combat veteran and I know, as do many others, how important this is.David T. Gruman Punta GordaCorporate prots are not excessiveEditor: To all you people out there who think that corporate prots are excessive. If your kids came to you and asked for your help in investing their money, would you tell them, Sure, but I will only invest in corporations or funds that make less than 5 percent. That is a fair amount and I dont want you to make so much that you are called un-American. Of course, you wouldnt. I dont know of anyone with an IRA or a 401K that has ever said to me that they are making too much money and are going to have to nd a company that is not very successful so that they dont appear greedy. Come on folks, get real.William Kopycki Port CharlotteConstance, Deutsch have earned re-electionEditor: I am writing to ask my fellow Republicans to join me in voting for incumbent County Commissioners Chris Constance and Stephen R. Deutsch. Over the past four years Ive had the opportunity to work with both of them, and while we didnt always agree, I always found them to be thoughtful and open-minded. They listen, understand, work tirelessly, do their homework in depth and are not beholden to any group. Can their challengers say that? Constance and Deutsch do have one special interest group, however, the people of Charlotte County. They have earned four more years.Bill Dahms Cape Haze OUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Letters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules. Please keep them to less than 250 words.

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 Redistricting scam creates massive chaosOUR POSITION: Legislators cant be trusted to draw district boundaries.Republican shenanigans while redrawing congressional districts that violate a voter-approved constitutional amendment may trigger up to 11 special elections, including one in Charlotte County, and cast yet another unseemly spotlight on the states election dysfunction. The gamesmanship has already forced the Legislature into a special session in order to comply with a judges order to redraw the districts by Aug. 15. The chaos was triggered by GOP gerrymandering of two districts in violation of the Fair Districts amendment passed in 2010. U.S. Rep Corrine Browns 5th Congressional district, which used to be the 3rd district, is so comically drawn for partisan gain that it stretches from Jacksonville to Orlando. Rep. Daniel Websters 10th district, formerly the 8th district, was moved into Central Florida, removing voters from Democraticleaning Pinellas County and giving it a majority of GOP voters. After a coalition of voting rights organizations sued the Legislature, Circuit Judge Terry P. Lewis ruled last month that mapmakers redrew the lines to consolidate Democraticleaning communities into two districts to bolster the chances of Republican candidates in neighboring districts. Theres no guarantee the newly drawn districts will survive likely challenges because the same gang of co-conspirators who drew the rst maps worked on the new ones, which were approved Friday. Legislative leaders slapped a gag order on staffers, ensuring the redrawing was a covert affair. Lawmakers and elections ofcials earlier rejected a plan to use the Nov. 4 general election as a primary for a special election, with the presi dent of the Florida Association of Supervisors of Elections saying it would create massive voter confusion. Appalled by testimony from consultants and lawmakers involved in the reapportionment effort, which included the creation of a fake email address used to submit a pro-GOP map, Lewis excoriated legislators in his ruling, saying they made a mockery of their claims of transparency. Lewis was being kind. Florida House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz pledged repeatedly to make the redistricting the most open and inclusive ever. They staged events across the state and built a website with mapping software that allowed anyone to create and submit maps. It was all a sham, as lawmakers were secretly scheming with political consultants even as they were professing the openness of the process. With all the power in the state residing with one party, there will be no accountability when this sad affair is over. Attorney General Pam Bondi is completely indifferent to the possibility state laws may have been broken and the Constitution certainly violated. The aw in the Fair Districts amendment was its modest goal. It also assumed lawmakers and their backroom puppetmasters would honor the will of voters at the risk of ceding the slightest bit of power. When the dust clears after the re-redistricting and special elections, perhaps the activists behind Fair Districts will stage a drive for another amendment to create an independent redistricting committee. We are not naive enough to think such a body would be apolitical, but its crystal clear its not a job we can entrust to legislators. 'v 1\ISLAM""MILITANI WA NTBACK IN IRAQ

The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINT Although the Ebola virus might remain mostly conned to West Africa, it has infected the Western imagination. This eruption of uncontrolled nature into what developed nations consider serene modernity is more disturbing to the emotional serenity of multitudes than it is threatening to their physical health. Perhaps the world periodically needs an equivalent of the 1755 Lisbon earthquake, a chastening reminder that nature still has something to say about what human beings proudly, and prematurely, call the conquest of nature. The earthquake disturbed Europes Enlightenment serenity: Perhaps God has not really ordained a benevolently ordered universe. This should not have been news to Europe, which in the 14th century had lost more than half of its population to the Black Death plague, and had subsequently endured many lesser but nevertheless devastating epidemics. In America, the rst modern nation and the nation most committed to the modern project of taming natures capriciousness, the AIDS epidemic of the early 1980s was particularly traumatic. This was so even though the public health threat from the disease was limited because the primary means by which it was transmitted were known risky behaviors involving sex or needles shared by drug users. AIDS disabused Americans of their polio paradigm. The 1950s success of the Salk vaccine in removing the terror of polio had encouraged the belief that pharmacology could slay all infectious diseases. The Black Death probably spread through Europe by land and on eas carried by rats brought by ships to Mediterranean ports, and transportation also contributed to the spread of AIDS. HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, probably came from chimpanzees in Africa and infected humans who hunted them around the 1930s. HIV was spread by truckers who patronized prostitutes along Africas improved roads. Boeing and Airbus, two manufacturers of the aircraft that made intercontinental travel accessible to multitudes, have thereby complicated public health ofcials task of quarantining diseases. The man tentatively identied years ago as Patient Zero, who supposedly introduced HIV to America, was an Air Canada ight attendant. Nowadays, so many terrible deeds are reexively called ter rorism that the term is becoming a classication that no longer classies. Remember, terrorists are in the terror business, the essence of which is random horror. A nuclear weapon in a terrorists hands would be a nightmare, but not necessarily the worst such. The scientic infrastructure for the manufacture of such a weapon is expensive and complex, and the means of delivering it to a target can be, too. A biological weapon can be delivered by a terrorist carrying a vial of smallpox in his pocket. Epidemics silent and invisible during their incubation, swift and unpredictable in their trajectories are devastating terror weapons, as participants discovered from Dark Winter. This 13-day simulation of a bioterrorism attack it postulated the release of smallpox in Oklahoma City, Philadelphia and Atlanta was conducted in June 2001. Smallpox is easily transmitted by breathing air exhaled by infected persons, and the fatality rate is about 30 percent. Furthermore, there is an incubation period of seven to 17 days, during which infected persons show no symptoms. Dark Winter concluded that a smallpox virus released in those three cities would reach 25 states and at least 10 other countries within two weeks, bringing unprecedented panic with it. In 1947, a single American smallpox case caused 6.4 million Americans, including President Harry Truman, to be vaccinated. According to a University of Pittsburgh Medical Center report, There has never been a smallpox outbreak in such a densely populated, highly mobile, unvaccinated population as todays America. The UPMC report says smallpox vaccinations in America stopped in 1972, and vaccine production facilities were closed in the 1980s. Since 9/11, production has resumed. A single smallpox case in Yugoslavia in 1972 prompted the vaccination of almost all 20 million Yugoslavs. In 1980, the World Health Organization declared smallpox, a killer of hundreds of millions, eradicated. Today, supposedly only America and Russia retain samples of the smallpox virus. Last month, six glass vials of it were found in a storage room at the National Institutes of Health in suburban Washington. Amid this months commemorations of the 100th anniversary of the beginning of historys most calamitous manmade event, World War I, remember its ending: A worldwide inuenza pandemic arose from wartime conditions. It began in 1918 and killed more people in a year (about 50 million) than the war killed (about 16 million, military and civilian) in four years. Nature, Ebola reminds us, remains a creative danger. George Will is a columnist for The Washington Post. Readers may reach him at georgewill@ washpost.com.Ebola: Natures creative danger George Will The Obama administration erred on the side of inclusion in deciding which leaders to invite to its ambitious U.S.-Africa summit this week at least in the view of human rights advocates. The guest list featured some of Africas nastiest tyrants, including autocrats such as Angolas Jose Eduardo dos Santos and Equatorial Guineas Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, who traveled to Washington for the summit, which included an ofcial White House dinner. Usually, leaders with such dismal records on democracy and human rights arent welcomed at White House galas. This time, however, Obama excluded only four of the continents leaders (Zimbabwes Robert Mugabe along with the leaders of Eritrea, Sudan and the Central African Republic). That left some of Africas most admirable democratic presidents, such as Ghanas John Dramani Mahama and Tanzanias Jakaya Kikwete, having to compete for attention with some of its most authoritarian. Obiang, for example, who recently celebrated the 35th anniversary of the military coup that brought him to power in 1979, has jailed or killed virtually all of his political opponents. But the three-day summit wasnt primarily about democracy and human rights. It was about ways the U.S. gov ernment and private enterprise can form partnerships in Africa to promote the continents promising economies. To be sure, the challenges of building the institutions of civil society were on the agenda too, but only as a sideshow. Its not possible to succeed for your people unless they have a chance to shape the policies of their government, Vice President Joe Biden told an audience of African civic leaders Monday. Democracy has taken root, and now its trying to grow in places where its very difcult. But few of the African leaders were in the room at the time. And if there was any blunt talk about human rights in places such as Angola and Equatorial Guinea, it happened in private. The theory, U.S. ofcials say, is that lecturing African countries about democracy or even helping them build civil institutions such as an independent judicia ry isnt always an effective way to nudge them toward more open political systems. Instead, the underly ing theme of the summit was that security against terrorism and economic development must come rst, and that if all goes well political progress will naturally follow. But that message has dismayed traditional advocates of human rights. Its been enormously disappointing, Kenneth Roth of Human Rights Watch told me. Promotion of human rights and democracy is very important to this administration, but only after it gets done promoting security issues and business. In Egypt, Ethiopia and Nigeria, he charged, the U.S. has gone easy on human rights violations because it counts those governments as allies in the struggle against Islamist extremists. And throughout Africa, U.S. government funding for democracy promotion has been cut while economic aid has grown. Administration ofcials bristle at the suggestion theyve relegated human rights to second place. Were committed to supporting strong democratic institutions in Africa, Ben Rhodes, Obamas deputy national security adviser, told reporters before the summit. But other ofcials acknowledge that human rights cant always come rst. Lets be honest: At times we do business with governments that do not respect the rights we hold most dear, national security adviser Susan Rice said last year. Still, over time, we know that our commitment to democracy and human rights roundly reinforces our national security. In Africa, the picture has been complicated by a new factor: the rapidly growing economic presence of China. Chinas trade with Africa has far outpaced U.S. commerce there in recent years, and Chinas investment in the continent has been growing fast. The problem, ofcials say, is that Chinese investment ows into African countries without pressure for democratic governance or demands that countries crack down on corruption. Obamas announcement Tuesday of $14 billion in new investments by U.S. companies many of them in a program called Power Africa aimed at bringing electricity to the conti nents underdeveloped interior was intended to help close the U.S.China investment gap. These projects are a way we can compete with the Chinese for inuence, one ofcial said. We need to be on the playing eld, even if we dont play the same way. Obama was even more pointed in an interview with the Economist last week. My advice to African leaders is to make sure that if, in fact, China is putting in roads and bridges, number one, that theyre hiring African workers; number two, that the roads dont just lead from the mine to the port to Shanghai. For autocratic leaders in Africa, dealing with Beijing may be easier. But the administration will have work to do to ensure that U.S. investments also contribute to progress for human rights and democratic values. The advocates of civil society in Africa have a good product to sell. Power Africa and other U.S. investments should be used to help them get that necessary foot in the door.

Ad vertise y our yard sale! If I were to read just recent headlines about higher education, I would be quite concerned about its health. This is particularly true with for-prot higher education. Earlier this summer, in response to its use of nancial aid funds, Corinthian Colleges Inc. agreed to sell 85 of its campuses, and to teach out programs in 12 others. Bryman College of BioHealth Inc., Bauder College in Atlanta, and Career Colleges of America in California are other examples of closures this year. Federal and state legal and consumer-protection over sight is on the increase. This dynamic is not limited to for-prots, as evidenced by the closure of 130-year-old Virginia Intermont College earlier this year. But, contrary to how it may appear in the headlines, higher education is going through a unique phase of innovation, which I believe will lead to a transformation of the national workforce. This innovation is not just a response to calls for greater access, accountability and affordability. It is a recasting of the unique place colleges and universities have in the expansion of American prosperity. The key to this expansion is in the teaching and learning of workforce skills, nationally and regionally. This innovation is timely. The publics faith in the college dream is alive and strong. Recent studies continue to support the value of higher education. But this faith soon may erode if it is not bolstered by sustainable demonstration that higher education leads to greater earnings and socio-economic mobility. I have a personal goal that my 4-year-old daughter will graduate from a college with low debt service, ready to earn a living wage or higher, and able to support her then-doting and -aged father in the lifestyle to which he is accustomed. Regional higher-education institutions are meeting this innovation challenge. An example is the Workforce Now research partnership of Florida Gulf Coat University, Florida SouthWestern State College and Hodges University. This research is concerned with identifying the talent requirements of current and future workers in Southwest Florida. It already has yielded invaluable results, including the importance of expanding the scope of talent recruitment, identifying emergent education and training areas, the need for foundational workforce skills development, and the barriers and opportunities facing educational providers. Other innovations will be in taking what are now educational buzzwords or phrases such as experiential learning, accelerated programs, articulations, MOOCs, ipped classrooms, etc. into high-quality program implementation. This must be done in the context of proving long-lasting attainment of learning and greater employability for learners in well-paying jobs, all the while keeping these opportunities at affordable levels. FSW and others continue to further leaders in innovation by providing a range of offerings from shortterm workforce training to conferring degrees, expanding partnerships and relationships with business and industry, and being the thought and knowledge leaders in educational paths to local citizens success and prosperity. So the news is good. Dr. Tom Rath is the associate dean of business and technology at Florida SouthWestern State College FSW.

Compiled by Gary RobertsTraffic enforcement locations setCHARLOTTE COUNTY During the rainy summer months, there are a few healthful practices to live by. One: If there is lightning outside, stay indoors. Two: with triple-digit heat indexes, dont over do the outdoor chores. And three: Fertilizing with nitrogen and phosphorus is strictly prohibited, for the well-being of our waterways. Counties and municipalities throughout Southwest Florida have enacted fertilizer ordinances designed to regulate two components of fertilizer: nitrogen and phosphorus. The Charlotte County ordinance was written in 2008 to promote healthy landscapes and water sources, but was amended in 2011 with two important changes. Locally, no fertilizer containing nitrogen or phosphorus may be applied to turf or landscape plants from June 1 to Sept. 30, a period known as the restricted season. Additionally, there is now a limit as to how much nitrogen can be applied each year, with no more than four pounds of actual nitrogen per 1,000 square feet per year, total. Also, nitrogen fertilizer must contain at least 50 percent slow-release nitrogen. The second major change establishes best-management practices for both residential and commercial users who apply fertilizer within unincorporated Charlotte County. The goal of the or dinance is to ensure the protection of water resources from nutrient pollution, while allowing homeowners to maintain their lawns and landscaping. Improper application of fertilizers, such as using more than recommended amounts or applying the wrong formulas at certain times of the year, is a recipe for disaster. When combined with rains and runoff, these nutrients are redirected from lawns and gardens, feeding harmful aquatic algae that threaten our quality of life and economy. All commercial fer tilizer applicators must receive certication in a county-approved BMP training program. Ralph Mitchell is the Charlotte County extension director/ horticulture agent. He also helped to draw up the county fertilizer ordinance in 2008, and then he helped to train commercial users in best practices. These lessons apply to homeowners as well. Certainly, residents need to know these same things, he said. Mitchell is familiar with the most visible and harmful example of a local algal bloom, at Sunshine Lake/ the Sunrise Waterway. While he is hesitant to weigh in on the possible cause or solution for the contaminated waterway, Mitchell said the cleanup is complicated by more than just the resilience shown by the blue-green algae. Its been a ticklish issue of both science and politics, he said. To ward off contributing to the problem, Mitchell suggests waterfront homeowners have bushes and other marginal plantings to capture and clean any runoff before it gets to the water. In fact, the county ordinance requires residents to maintain a 10-foot fertilizer-free zone around water bodies and wetlands, or 3 feet with a deector. If homeowners absolutely need to use fertilizer during the summer, some blends are allowed, but, again, no nitrogen or phosphorus, he said. If you practice all of these things, you tend to experience fewer problems, Mitchell said.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comDont feed the slime monster with fertilizerBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITER | POLICE BEATThe information for Police Beat is gathered from police, sheriffs office, Florida Highway Patrol, jail and fire records.

Our Town Page 12 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS PUNTA GORDA Many years ago, Charlotte County Airport Authority Chairman Don Lee was ying into Lancaster, Pa., when the weather took a turn for the worst. I had oil all over my windshield, and if it wasnt for their ILS (instrument landing system), I might not be here today, he said. It guided me right in. If everything goes according to plan, Lee hopes to have a new ILS at the Punta Gorda Airport by the rst of the year, pending approval by the Federal Aviation Administration. The new ILS will cost an estimated $750,000, and will be installed on Runway 4. The new system will be funded by grant money from the Florida Department of Transportation. An ILS operates by transmitting a radio beam, and when approaching planes tune their receiver to a certain frequency, it will provide precision guidance for the aircraft by using lateral and vertical signals. As the plane slowly descends, the ILS will bring the plane down a glide slope and the center line of the runway. All of this can be done on autopilot, or hand-own by the pilot. The system is used worldwide to land planes when it is extremely foggy, or there is heavy rain or blowing snow. Right now, in case of bad weather, the only runway on which aircraft can land is Runway 22. It has a VOR, an omnidirectional range approach where aircraft receive radio beacons from the ground to remain on course. When the control tower was erected, the VOR was off by a few degrees. The construction of a new shield, however, consisting of wires about 20 feet in length, should correct it. This past Thursday and Friday, an FAA aircraft has own and approved the approaches for Runways 22 and 4. Lee said the new ILS and upgrading of the VOR will alleviate the problems and allow planes to make their approach and land safely. Right now, the ceiling has to be a minimum of 560 feet and a 1-mile visibility, he said. In bad weather, with the new ILS, a plane can land on Runway 4 at 200 feet, and Runway 22 at 400 feet. Most aircraft today, private or commercial, are equipped with ILS on their aircraft. With the upgrades, the ight schools located at the airport will be able to offer ILS training to the new pilots. Currently, students have to travel to Fort Myers or Sarasota to receive that training. A new fuel meter has been installed, and lighting and a canopy for general aviation will be put in place in the near future. The new lighting and canopy will provide better illumination for night operation and during inclement weather when refueling planes. Lee said the airport also plans to use its golf cart for corporate jets. Because they park their planes further from the terminal, these pilots can request the cart to pick up passengers and luggage, and transport them to the terminal building. Maintenance is scheduled on the gener al aviation T-hangars as well, according to Lee. They will restructure the doors, remove rust and apply a fresh coat of paint. The price tag will not exceed $150,000. We have not implemented a price increase in 10 years, he said. We want to help general aviation in their cost factors. The old airport administration building will be razed, and the old terminal will be remod eled, to make way for the new 50,000-square-foot terminal, Lee said. The estimated overall cost for the project, expected to be completed by next summer, will be $11.5 million. The large increase in passenger trafc is one of the paramount reasons the terminal-expansion project began. We are getting grants from the FAA and (the) FDOT for the projects, Lee said. When it is all said and done, the terminal will be paid for too. Lee said the airport has seen extraordinary growth in the past 15 years and he wants it to continue. The board had made this a true airline airport, he said. We want additional airlines to take a look at us, the improvement projects we have planned, the increased passenger count, and (to) entice them to do business here.Instrument landing among airport upgradesBy AL HEMINGWAYSUN CORRESPONDENT | COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFSParkside fest needs sponsors, vendorsTeam Parkside, a 501(c)(3) nonprot dedicated to revitalizing the original neighborhoods of Port Charlotte, cur rently is seeking sponsors and vendors for its signature fundraising event, the Parkside Fall Festival, to be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 8 in the common area behind the Promenades Mall, in the Parkside area of town.

NORTH PORT Around 20 books are currently on display at the North Port Library not ones able to be checked out, but instead, tomes of the handmade variety. Lynn Webster, 62, curated the exhibit with four other bookmakers from the Art Center Sarasota and reference librarian Janis Russell. No two books within the exhibit are crafted alike, whether the focus is on a different binding, folding, paper or interior design. One book is even made out of coffee lters. The concepts are the most important part both the interior and the exterior of the book, ideally working together, said Webster, a one-year North Port resident. This idea shines through with her construction of a book that she focused around the concept of a house. She folded sections of a novel titled Noble House in various shapes and painted depictions of houses on several pages. The exterior and title of the book corresponds with the art on the inside. Although Webster primarily refers to herself as a printmaker, she has been creating handmade books since taking a class during her undergrad study at the Art Institute of Chicago. Using what she learned, she furthered her skill set by reading how-to books and has continued to evolve the ways she makes books. For me, they take a few hours to easily as much as 100 hours to create, she said. Taking around three hours apiece to make, two of her box books, a design in which a long piece of paper is folded like an accordion into a box, are also exhibited. While many may consider handmade books a kind of dying art, Webster disagrees. She views the unique niche of an art form as getting a new life because of the new ways people are interacting with books; people are now seeing and handling them as art. She said the reason for this is the rise of digital media handmade books seem like artifacts. The handcrafted books will be on display at the library, 13800 S. Tamiami Trail, until the end of September. Call 941-8611307 for more information on the display.

The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 15 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS ENGLEWOOD Toddlers can start training for the annual Englewood Pioneer Days Diaper Derby. The Lemon Bay Womans Club invites all crawling babies to participate in this years Diaper Derby at 2 p.m. Aug. 31 at the historic womans club, located at the corner of Maple and Cocoanut streets. The event is free and all participants will receive prizes. Its never the same and is exciting, said Nadine Kubisch, Lemon Bay Womans Club past president. You dont know what will happen with these babies. Families are asked to register their tots prior to Aug. 31. Entry forms are available at www. lemonbaywomansclub. com; or for infor mation, call Terri at 941-474-3520. The only requirement is that the toddlers are still crawling and not walking. The Diaper Derby is actually one of the older Pioneers Day events that had fallen by the wayside for a number of years. Womans club members decided to revive it five years ago. Its a family-oriented event that fits into Pioneer Days, Kubisch said. The event also allows parents to meet and socialize with other parents with toddlers, as well as offering families a unique photo opportunity. There are some things that are timeless, like the baby crawl, she said. Everyone loves babies and to see them interact with other babies. Kubisch also said holding the event at the historic Lemon Bay Womans Club is appropriate. She may be right. In 1918, Mary Green, a school teacher in Englewood, organized the club and originally called it the Lemon Bay Mothers Club, a name the club retained until 1924. According to local historian Diana Harris, the 11 charter club members first met at Buchans Landing, what was then the home of Florence Buchan. The prairie-style clubhouse, which is now on the historic National Registry, was built in 1925 on lots owned by developers A. Stanley and Winifred E. Lampp. Sarasota architects Thomas Reed Martin and Clare C. Hosmer donated their services to design the clubhouse. Carpenters Pat Lampp, Fred Clark and Leroy Bastedo constructed the clubhouse. According to Harris research, the club became a civic center for the community. Ten Englewood churches started in the clubhouse and numerous civic groups met there. From 1922 to 1962, the clubhouse served as a lending and school library. Besides the Diaper Derby and as part of a Pioneer Days historic tour, the Lemon Bay Womans Club will open the clubhouse to the public from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 24. The Lemon Bay Womans Club is as active as it was when it was first formed. The club members, ages 45 to 95, support various family-oriented local charities, Kubisch said. The club also offers scholarships to graduating Lemon Bay High School girls. We have fast friendships evolve, she said. Weve seen younger members adopt older members and older members adopt younger members. And we have fun events here.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comCrawl, dont walk, to the finish lineBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER PHOTO PROVIDEDLeft: The Lemon Bay Womans Club again will play host to the Englewood Pioneer Days Diaper Derby, at 2 p.m. Aug. 31 at the historic womans club.

Former Gov. Charlie Crist brings up the topic on most campaign stops and says one of the rst things hell do if elected is call a special session to expand Medicaid. His opponent, incumbent Republican Gov. Rick Scott, seems to be waning in his support. Scott told The Miami Herald hes open to taking roughly $51 billion over the next decade from the federal government, but only as long as Florida taxpayers arent left with the bill. In a surprise move two years ago, Scott made an emotional speech, saying that Medicaid expansion was a compassionate, common-sense choice. But he never put his full political weight behind the issue and the Legislature rejected expansion under the Affordable Care Act. Scott has since backed away from his position, telling MSNBC earlier this year: I said while the federal government is Medicaid becomes election issueBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSMEDICAID | 4 BAGHDAD The Iraqi central government followed U.S. forces in delivering massive amounts of aid Saturday to refugees stranded high in the Sinjar mountains after they escaped a Sunni militant takeover of their towns, and President Barack Obama warned Americans that the renewed U.S. military campaign in Iraq will be a long-term project. Iraqs defense ministry released a video showing a eet of C130 cargo planes, each carrying 20 tons of foodstuffs and water, dropping the aid to people in the mountains earlier Saturday. The video shows aerial views of hundreds of cars on top of the mountain and men rushing to collect the deliveries. President Barack Obama wouldnt say Saturday just how long the U.S. military involvement would last. He said it depends on the Iraqi governments sincerity in bringing feuding political parties and sectarian groups together to combat the crisis. I dont think we are going to solve this problem in weeks, Obama said. He described the militant takeover of large parts of Iraq as a wake-up call for a lot of Iraqis inside of Baghdad who must cooperate to keep their country from breaking up.

LA Times) Charles Manson associate Bruce Davis, convicted for his part in killing two of the nine people slain by members of the 1960s Manson family cult, was denied parole Friday by California Gov. Jerry Brown. For the third time, Davis, 71, had been recommended by a state parole board in March for release from a life sentence for crimes committed in 1969. Brown, who also over turned a previous parole grant in 2012, cited the exceptional brutality of these crimes and the terror the Manson family inicted on the Los Angeles community for his decision late Friday. Davis admitted his role in killing musician Gary Hinman, an acquaintance of cult members who was held captive in his home, beaten and eventually killed in a failed extortion attempt. At one point, Davis held a gun on Hinman while Manson sliced the mans ear. Hinmans body was found in his home with the words political piggy drawn on the wall with his blood. Davis also admitted participating in the group attack on Donald Shorty Shea, a stuntman and hand at the ranch where the Manson cult was living and whom Charles Manson accused of being a police informant. Davis was not present during the killings of actress Sharon Tate and friends at her Benedict Canyon home in August 1969, nor at the slayings of wealthy Los Angeles grocers Leno and Rosemary LaBianca that same month. In his denial of parole, Brown said Davis is still dodging responsibility for his leadership in the Manson family by paint ing himself as a passive bystander who took part in these appalling events because he was afraid of the repercussions of breaking away. Brown also pressed Davis to shed more light on the crimes, details of which continue to emerge 45 years after the fact. At the time of the 2012 denial, Los Angeles police were attempting to obtain recordings of conversations between another Manson cult member, Charles Tex Watson, and his private attorney. Detectives said they were searching for clues to other possible killings something Davis had been asked about during past parole hearings. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger over turned Davis rst parole grant in 2010. Browns decision came one day before the 45th anniversary of the killing of Tate and her friends, and as the governor continued a low-key campaign for re-election. Even though younger Californians may not know about or care, the Manson family killings remain a touchstone for many Californians, said John J. Pitney Jr., a professor of politics at Claremont-McKenna College. Thats politically signicant because older people tend to vote more, he said. The governor has also been under re from his Republican opponent and some law enforcement ofcials for a prison policy that has packed tens of thousands of felons into already crowded county jails.Parole denied for Manson family member LAS ANIMAS, Colo. (The Washington Post) Its the beginning of the month, which means that Debra and Raymond Gonzalezs fridge is packed: Pallets of eggs, bags of tomatoes, a big bowl of spaghetti, a tub of ice cream in the freezer. But they already know that they probably wont make it to the end of the month without help. We used to be able to get bags and bags of groceries, and only spend $50, exclaims Debra, 54, who walks quickly around their double-wide trailer despite the respirator she carries strapped to her waist, and the breathing tubes in her nostrils. And now you spend $200, and only get 2 little bags! Meat, especially, has escalated, along with milk and cereal. Debra loves broccoli, but its usually too expensive at the one grocery store in this shrunken town in southeastern Colorado. They used to be able to afford it, though. A little while ago, Debras food stamps were cut from $180 a month to only $15, when Raymond started receiving social security benets. They get some help with gas bills for heat in the winter, but also burn wood cut by the permission of local farmers (theyve stripped the dead tree in their front yard too). Along with his pension from the long-shuttered Veterans Administration hospital and Debras disability benets, it comes to about $1,200 a month, which the welfare ofce said was too much. They only see it one way, says Raymond, 64, sitting across the living room from Debra, in a quick, high-pitched voice. They dont realize we have to pay for gas, etc. Debra needs to make frequent trips to medical specialists in Pueblo and faraway Denver; Las Animas lost its last physician years ago. So you cant win for losing. They put you in poverty, to some point. The total amount of U.S. spending on public benets, which lately seem to the Gonzalezes like theyll never add up to enough, has actually risen since the advent of key social welfare programs in the 1960s. But as the American conception of who deserves help has changed, so has their distribution. Before, destitute families could nd support, if jobs werent available. Now, those who work receive the most assistance, while those who cant arent quite as lucky. Robert Moftt, an economist at Johns Hopkins University, ran the numbers: Benets increasingly come in the form of tax exemptions, like the earned income tax credit and the family tax credit, for which people who dont work arent eligible. Meanwhile, the program that used to be known as Aid to Families with Dependent Children has dwindled to almost nothing. The Gonzalezes are not the biggest losers from this trend. That would be the single parents earning less than half the federal poverty line, who in 2004 received 35 percent less in transfer payments on average than they did in 1983, as benets have owed instead to those who are either married and employed or elderly and disabled. But since Raymonds mounting back pain has kept him from being able to hold down a job, the two have fallen behind; if one source of income gets bumped up, another fades away. If theyre on public assistance, its a very ne line, says Sharon Barber, who runs a local nonprot called Las Animas Helping Hands. When someone gives them a raise, its really a cut. The Gonzalezes have been depending more and more on Barber, who followed her pastor husband to the town 11 years ago. Her all-volunteer operation has taken over a number of social services previously performed by local government: Delivering food baskets to seniors, running the local food pantry, helping with income tax preparation, lling in when people fall short on bills. Barber administers several government grants and writes applications for others, all from her basement. Social welfare services have become a bigger task in recent years in small town America, as the disappearance of jobs has put more people below the poverty line. In Las Animas Bent County, the percent of children under 5 receiving WIC assistance grew from 48.3 percent in 1999 to 96.2 percent in 2012. And drawing per haps the biggest volume of benets payments, more than one in four residents of Bent County is disabled, according to the Census. Technically, the cost of living is lower, too, but its also harder to access services: Barber spends a lot of time driving people to Walmart the next town over, or medical appointments even further away.Support for some of Americas poorest has dwindled DAVIS +0% financing in lieu of rebates, with approved credit, through ALL!

The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 3 NATIONAL NEWS SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (AP) Some overindulged their zucchini patch. Others didnt bother with that dripping kitchen sink. But now every Monday night in this drought-stricken beach town, dozens of residents who violated their strict rations take a seat at Water School, hoping to get hundreds of thousands of dollars in distressing penalties waived. Nik Martinelli, a Santa Cruz water-conservation specialist who is up before dawn patrolling for overwatered lawns, launched a recent lesson. We all know why youre here. You all went over your allotment and got a big penalty, he said. Margaret Hughes nodded grimly. Her $210 water bill came with a $775 ne last month. She drove from her home four hours north of town to face the scolding, even though she had no idea the toilet in a vacant house she inherited had been leaking. Two hours later, everyone was ready to ace their Water School quiz, identifying the communitys sparse water sources, listing ways to conserve water, describing how to use their water meters to check for leaks. Theyre turning this into something positive, said Hughes, adding that she might take advantage of a $150 rip-out-yourlawn rebate she learned about. California is in the third year of the states worst drought in recent history. Farmland is going fallow. Lakes are turning to mud. Golf courses, cemeteries and parks are browning. Earlier in the year when winter storms didnt blow in and the forecast was grim, most communities took the ask nicely, approach, suggesting residents cut water use by 20 percent. But Santa Cruz, a coastal town about 60 miles south of San Francisco, couldnt afford to wait. Unlike most cities that have either groundwater, a connection to state water canals, or vast reservoirs, Santa Cruz is among those worst hit by the drought because what makes it special the town is surrounded by ocean and mountains also means it relies almost exclusively on storm runoff into a river, creeks and an aging reservoir. Were completely dependent on Mother Nature, so were vulner able Santa Cruz Water Director Rosemary Menard said. There really is no carrot in the situation that were facing. We had to ration. The city cracked down in May, deploying drought busters, whom locals call water cops, to warn and then penalize anyone openly watering between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., washing down pavement or relling a spa. A logo, Surf City Saves, was launched, and a hotline to tattle on water wasters and mandatory household limits, allowing just 249 gallons per day for a family of four, were set. A typical dishwasher load is 20 gallons, a load of laundry can be 25 gallons, a toilet ush can be 3 gallons. It adds up. Nationally, a family of four averages 400 gallons a day. Most Santa Cruz residents, 94 percent of them, cut back as required, some with zeal. Energy consultant Joel Kauffman has his household of three adults and a toddler using just over 100 gallons a day. We dont use the shower as a place to hang out. Thats for the living room or the beach, Kauffman said. Kauffman has installed low-ow toilets and shower heads. They dont always ush urine, they water their fruit trees with laundry runoff and a shower bucket gets dumped in the toilet tank or in the garden. Some were not so ardent. In June, the rst month of rationing rules, 1,635 Santa Cruz household accounts faced $341,000 in nes. In July, 2,121 accounts had penalties applied, totaling $175,725. So far $202,340 in nes have been suspended for Water School graduates. And theres a waiting list for weeks to come. While Santa Cruz has cut back 25 percent of its water use, Gov. Jerry Browns request in January that everyone cut back 20 percent had the opposite effect statewide. Some districts Southern California coastal communities and the far northeastern slice of the state actually used more, prompting a 1 percent increase in water use statewide. So starting in August, authorities are imposing statewide rationing with nes of up to $500 a day for residents who waste water on lawns, landscaping and washing cars. Water cops are being hired and nes imposed.Drought lessons: Water wasters attend Water School AP PHOTOThis May 1, le photo shows irrigation water runs along a dried-up ditch between rice farms in Richvale, Calif. In Santa Cruz, Calif., dozens of residents who violated their strict water rations take a seat at Water School, hoping to get hundreds of thousands of dollars in distressing penalties waived. California is in the third year of the states worst drought in recent history. (The Washington Post) Youve probably received the pitch at the checkout counter: Would you like a 20 percent discount for opening a credit card with us? The offers can lead to savings for people who are store regulars and for consumers who diligently pay their balances off in full each month. But a survey released this week by Creditcards.com of 61 major retail store credit cards found that stores are charging higher interest rates, making the offers less of a deal. The study found that the average retail credit card charges an annual percentage rate of 23.23 percent, up more than 2 percentage points from 2010, according to Creditcards. com. Cards that can be used to make purchases at only one retailer had the highest rates, 24.48 percent, compared to 21.63 percent for store-branded cards that can be used at other merchants. Among the cards surveyed, Zales had the highest rate, with an APR up to 28.99 percent. If you pay your bill off in full every month, it can work for you, says Matt Schulz, a senior industry analyst for Creditcards.com. But if you slip up, if you miss a payment, if you carry over a balance, the numbers can turn against you fairly quickly. Here are some other things to consider if youre thinking about getting a retail credit card: Interest charges can undo any discounts. Most of the retailers surveyed enticed consumers to sign up by offering a low introductory rate or giving them a discount of up to 20 percent on their rst purchase. But those who dont pay off their card balances immediately could see those discounts completely erased by high interest charges. As Creditcards.com points out, someone who puts $1,000 on a retail credit card that charges the average interest rate of 23.23 percent would need 73 months to pay off the balance if they make only the minimum payment. They would also end up paying a whopping $840 in interest fees. Rewards are getting more complicated. Retailers are rolling out more creative perks for card users, such as free tailoring services and VIP shopping events, Schulz says. But the best rewards go to the biggest spenders. Some retailers, such as Macys and Nordstrom, use tiered loyalty programs that offer greater discounts and benets to customers who graduate to preferred or elite status for spending more. But some consumers who dont study the rules may not take advantage of the rewards, he says.It now makes even less sense to get a retail credit cardNEW YORK (AP) Police have become increasingly at odds with Mayor Bill de Blasio over the appearance he is taking sides against them after the chokehold death of a black suspect last month a conict that has prompted the citys top law enforcement ofcial to do damage control by calling the mayor very pro-cop. What angered many was a recent forum in which the Rev. Al Sharpton, one of the biggest critics of the New York Police Department, was seated alongside the mayor, a liberal Democrat, and the police commissioner as he lambasted law enforcement and suggested the mayors mixed-race son would be a candidate for a chokehold if he were an ordinary New Yorker. The image was seized on by critics of the administration and plastered on the cover of the New York Post with the headline Whos the Boss! It is outrageously insulting to all police ofcers to say that we go out on our streets to choke all people of color as Al Sharpton stated while seated at the table right next to our mayor at City Hall, said Patrick Lynch, head of the powerful Patrolmens Benevolent Association. Another union ofcial, Ed Mullins of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, hinted at a work slowdown at the nations largest police department. Former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani even weighed in, saying in a radio inter view that de Blasio made a big mistake .... setting up a press conference like that and putting a police commissioner in that situation. Thats extremely damaging to the police commissioner, to keep up the morale of the police. In recent days, emails have circulated among police ofcers showing a mock identication card with a picture of Sharpton and the title Police Commissioner. The activist has shot back by claiming he has the ear of federal ofcials who have the authority to bring civil rights charges in the death of Eric Garner.Police-mayor tensions mount over chokehold death Call 1-800-345-5273 Choose Your Free GiftWith any Este Lauder purchase of $35.00 or more.

(AP) Police in New York are on the hunt for a prolific bank robber who wears many hats. Police say the man donned a range of wacky headpieces as he committed eight bank robberies in Nassau County over the course of 2 months ending July 23. One of the banks was robbed twice. Surveillance photos show the robber wearing a floppy white hat at one bank. At another, he accessorized with a baseball hat that had a picture of President Barack Obama on it. And at another, he decided on a hat with a long wig attached. Police believe its the same robber in all the photos. They say the stickup artist typically gives tellers a note threatening violence and demanding cash.ODD NEWS Wanted: Repeat bank robber with fondness for hats and cancer are the biggest killers, the risk of contracting the Ebola virus is close to zero. Americans fretting about their own health would be better off focusing on getting a u shot this fall. Flu is blamed for about 24,000 U.S. deaths per year. To put the Ebola threat in perspective, here are some reasons to be concerned about the outbreak, and reasons not to fear it:Why its scaryThere is no cure for Ebola hemorrhagic fever. More than half of people infected in this outbreak have died. Death rates in some past outbreaks reached 90 percent. Its a cruel end that comes within days. Patients grow feverish and weak, suffering through body aches, vomiting, diarrhea and internal bleeding, sometimes bleeding from the nose and ears. The damage can spiral far beyond the patients themselves. Because its spread through direct contact with the bodily uids of sick patients, Ebola takes an especially harsh toll on doctors and nurses, already in short supply in areas of Africa hit by the disease. Outbreaks spark fear and panic. Health workers and clinics have come under attack from residents, who sometimes blame foreign doctors for the deaths. People with from Ebola or other illnesses may fear going to a hospital, or may be shunned by friends and neighbors. Two of the worst-hit countries Liberia and Sierra Leone sent troops to quarantine areas with Ebola cases. The aim was to stop the diseases spread but the action also created hardship for many residents.Where it isThe outbreak began in Guinea in March before spreading to neighboring Sierra Leone and Liberia. A traveler recently carried it farther, to Nigeria, leading to a few cases in the giant city of Lagos. Ebola emerged in 1976. It has been conrmed in 10 African nations, but never before in the region of West Africa. Lack of experience with the disease there has contributed to its spread. So has a shortage of medical personnel and supplies, widespread poverty, and political instability. Sierra Leone still is recovering from a decade of civil war in which children were forced into ghting. Liberia, originally founded by freed American slaves, also endured civil war in the 1990s. Guinea is trying to establish a young and fragile democracy. Nigeria, Africas most populous country, boasts great oil wealth but most of its people are poor. The government is battling Islamic militants in the north who have killed thousands of people and kidnapped more than 200 schoolgirls in April. This outbreak has proved more difcult to control than previous ones because the disease is crossing national borders, and is spreading in more urban areas. Tom Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, predicts that within a few weeks, Ebola will sicken more people than all previous occur rences combined. Already more than 1,700 cases have been reported. Global health ofcials say it will take months to fully contain the outbreak, even if all goes as well as can be hoped.Reasons not to be afraidEbola is devastating for those it affects. But most people dont need to fear it. Why? Ebola doesnt spread easily, the way a cold virus or the u does. It is only spread by direct contact with bodily uids such as blood, saliva, sweat and urine. Family members have contracted it by caring for their relatives or handling an infected body as part of burial practices. People arent contagious until they show symptoms, Frieden said. Symptoms may not appear until 21 days after exposure. People should not be afraid of casual exposure on a subway or an airplane, said Dr. Robert Black, professor of inter national health at Johns Hopkins University. Health ofcials around the developed world know how to stop Ebola. Frieden described tried-and-true measures: nd and isolate all possible patients, track down people they may have exposed, and ensure strict infection-control procedures while caring for patients. Every past outbreak of Ebola has been brought under control.EBOLAFROM PAGE 1 foreign extremists, did it themselves, pelting Faddah Ahmad with stones until her body was dragged away. Even when she was hit with stones she did not scream or move, said an opposition activist who said he witnessed the stoning near the football stadium and the Bajaa garden in the city of Raqqa, the main Syrian stronghold of the Islamic State group. The July 18 stoning was the second in a span of 24 hours. A day earlier, 26-year-old Shamseh Abdullah was killed in a similar way in the nearby town of Tabqa by Islamic State ghters. Both were accused of having sex outside marriage. The killings were the rst of their kind in rebel-held northern Syria, where jihadis from the Islamic State group have seized large swaths of territory, terrorizing residents with their strict interpretation of Islamic law, including beheadings and cutting off the hands of thieves. The jihadis recently tied a 14-year-old boy to a cross-like structure and left him for several hours in the scorching summer sun before bringing him down punishment for not fasting during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The group has also brutalized Shiite Muslims and others whom it views as apostates. In neighboring Iraq, Islamic State militants have driven members of the Yazidi religious minority out of a string of towns and villages. Thousands of the eeing Yazidis have been stranded on a mountaintop for days, a humanitarian crisis that prompted the U.S. to airlift aid to them this week. On Friday, Kamil Amin, the spokesman for Iraqs Human Rights Ministry, said hundreds of Yazidi women under the age of 35 are being held by the Islamic State group in schools in Iraqs second largest city Mosul, which the militants captured in June. The stonings in Syria last month were not widely publicized at the time, but in the following days three photographs appeared online which appeared to document the grisly spectacle and were consistent with other AP reporting. The pictures posted on a newly created Twitter account showed dozens of people gathered in a square, a cleric reading a verdict through a loudspeaker and several bearded men with automatic ries either carrying or collecting stones. A married woman being stoned in the presence of some believers, read the caption of the photographs on the Twitter account, which has since been suspended.STONEDFROM PAGE 1 artillery and the truck towing it outside Irbil. The Pentagon said the militants were using the artillery to shell Kurdish forces defending the capital of Iraqs autonomous Kurdish region, home to a U.S. consulate and about three dozen U.S. military trainers. A second round of air strikes by four Navy F/A18 ghter jets destroyed a seven-vehicle convoy, and unmanned aircraft hit a mortar launcher near Irbil, according to U.S. ofcials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they werent authorized to discuss the strikes publicly. American planes dropped food and water on Friday and Saturday for those trapped in the Sinjar mountains, said Pentagon chief spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby. Iraqs embattled Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki called upon his air force on Monday to provide aerial reinforcements to Kurdish ghters on the front lines of battle against the Islamic State militants. This was the rst show of cooperation between the central government and the semi-autonomous Kurdish regional government since the fall of Iraqs second largest city, Mosul, in June. But Kurdish ofcials were particularly pleased that U.S. forces were back in earnest. Their regional government said that American military were coordinating tactical responses with Kurdish peshmerga forces in the Kurdish capital, and Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, a Kurd, said the U.S. strikes were making a difference. Air strikes are intended to degrade the terrorists capabilities and achieve strategic gains and have been very effective, Zebari said late Friday. Many of Americas allies backed the U.S. intervention, pledging urgent steps to assist the legions of refugees and displaced people. Those in jeopardy included thousands of members of the Yazidi minority whose plight trapped on a mountaintop by the militants prompted the U.S. to airdrop dozens of crates of food and water.IRAQFROM PAGE 1going to pay 100 percent, I wont stand in the way of the Legislature wanting to do more. But the Legislature made the decision ... not to go forward. On Friday, Scott reafrmed his support in an interview with the newspaper and denied any contradictions. His campaign staff did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press on Saturday. While they spend 100 percent, Im not going to stand in the way of the federal government doing something, he said. What Im not willing to do is put Florida taxpay ers on the hook. Ive been very consistent and lets all remember that Obamacare is an absolute bad bill for patients, for families, for employ ers, for employees. Earlier this week, Crist, a Republicanturned-Democrat, said he would work with the GOP-controlled Legislature and urge them to forget about the party affiliations and do whats right for our fellow Floridians. ... we can get it done and We owe it to them. Crist also said hed use any tools at his disposal, adding hes not afraid to use the budget line-item veto if necessary. Expanding Medicaid has also been politically divisive between the Sunshine State and the federal government. Scott needed approval from federal health officials to expand on a controversial Medicaid privatization program. Lengthy negotiation ensued. Some experts predicted that if the feds approved the program that Scott would come out in favor of Medicaid expansion a tenet of Obamas health law. The feds approved statewide privatization, a victory for state Republicans, but Medicaid expansion was virtually a non-starter during this past Legislative session.MEDICAIDFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTODisplaced Iraqis from the Yazidi community settle outside the camp of Bajid Kandala at Feeshkhabour town near the SyriaIraq border, in Iraq Saturday. WASHINGTON (AP) In making the case for U.S. airstrikes in Iraq, President Barack Obama is drawing on the doctrine involving the use of American force that he outlined less than three months ago, when it seemed he was trying to avoid potential U.S. military action anywhere. In a late May speech at the U.S. Military Academy, Obama said he would use military force under two scenarios: a direct threat against Americans or U.S. interests, and a humanitarian crisis on a scale that he said would stir the conscience. On Thursday night, when Obama announced that he had authorized airstrikes and humanitarian airdrops in Iraq, he argued that both conditions were being met. When the lives of American citizens are at risk, we will take action, Obama said. And when many thousands of innocent civilians are faced with the danger of being wiped out and we have the capacity to do something about it, we will take action. Two days later, he suggested the U.S. engagement in Iraq will go on for some time. This is going to be a long-term project, Obama said of achieving the political climate in Iraq that its leaders need to counter terrorist threats. U.S. military jets have conducted several airstrikes on militant targets near Iraqs Kurdish capital of Irbil, home to a U.S. consulate and about three dozen American military trainers. The military also has undertaken two airdrops of food and water for Iraqis under siege from the Islamic State group, and Obama has authorized strikes if needed to protect the civilians. The deteriorating situation appears to fall within the parameters for military action Obama outlined. Yet the shift from a theoretical argument about using force to actually doing just that will test the scope and application of Obamas policy. Already Obama is facing the question of why Iraqs besieged religious minorities are worthy of U.S. military support, but not those in the civil war in Syria, where 170,000 people have died. The same question could apply to the violence in the Central African Republic or the Congo. Frederic Hof, a senior fellow at the Rak Hariri Center for the Middle East, said that even though he welcomed Obamas decision in Iraq, it was inevitable that those who have called for a similar humanitarian intervention in Syria will wonder why Iraq and why not Syria. Obamas advisers say there are important differences between Iraq and Syria. Ofcials note that Obama is undertaking military action in Iraq at the invitation of that countrys government, while in Syria, U.S. inter vention would aim to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad.In Iraq, a test of Obamas use-of-force doctrine odlooIoOn X03 des, 4 4 -"k4r1

The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 5 STATE NEWS (Tampa Bay Times) They never saw the Honda, and its driver never saw them. The sport utility vehicle smashed into Jayla Shubbar before she and her older sister reached the convenience store across the street. State ofcials had been planning to install another crosswalk on that stretch of North Tampas Busch Boulevard, an urban highway that cuts through the impoverished neighborhood where Jayla, 8, was struck that Saturday morning and died the next day. But they hadnt broken ground. We should be allowed to go around just as safely as anyone else, her mother, Darcien Shubbar, 33, said this week. Her anguish epitomizes what researchers for Governing magazine found in a study this month that the Tampa Bay area not only is one of the worst places in the nation to walk across the street, but also that the deadly danger gets far worse when pedestrians walk in poor neighborhoods. In Hillsborough County, pedestrian deaths are nearly three times more likely to occur in the poorest areas than in the wealthiest, the study found. The disparity was less pronounced in Pinellas County, but nonetheless, pedestrian deaths were nearly twice as likely to occur in its poorest areas. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the 2014 poverty level for an individual is $11,670 in earnings a year. For a household of four, its $23,850. People shy away from talking about issues like race or poverty in trying to come up with solutions to prevent so many pedestrian deaths, Shubbar believes. But if they dont want it to be a race thing or a poverty thing, she said, then let it be a life thing. The reasons why this fatal disparity exists seem intractable. The government for too long neglected poor neighborhoods, some politicians say, and developers skipped over them. One of the most valuable government services for low-income residents, public transportation, can also lead to deadly consequences. Riders looking to catch a bus have been known to dart across straightaways such as U.S. 19 to reach bus stops, said Ken Jacobs, a trafc engineering section manager for Pinellas County. More afuent people have a car in the garage, he said. They can jump in that car to get to their destination. But lowerand middle-income workers have to use more mass transit, and Pinellas County isnt necessarily laid out as well as it could be for mass transit. Among Hillsborough politicians with poorer constituencies, the narrative is usually the same. Part of the problem stems from thoroughfares cutting through densely populated, poorer areas. As more people move here, weve made it so that they move faster right through poor neighbor hoods, said Les Miller, a Hillsborough commissioner whose district includes some of the countys poorest communities. He pointed out that on a long stretch of Hillsborough Avenue, there isnt a single pedestrian crosswalk. But there are small businesses and stores lining the road, and homes and apartments tucked behind the main avenue.Bay area among worst in pedestrian safety 2 men struck by cars while lying in roadwayTAMPA (AP) One man has died and another is seriously injured after authorities say they were struck by two cars while lying in the middle of a southwest Florida road. Florida Highway Patrol ofcials said Stacey Arthur Butcher, 42, of New Port Richey and Christopher Momier, 24, of Gibsonton, were lying on an unlit road Friday night wearing dark clothes. Two cars ran over the men. Authorities said both drivers stopped their cars. Butcher died at the scene. Momier sustained serious injuries and was transported to Bayonet Point Medical Center. | NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATEAuthorities ID 6-year-old boy killed by pit bullsFANNING SPRINGS (AP) Authorities have identied the 6-year-old boy who was killed after being attacked by two pit bulls at his aunts home.

Page 6 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 STATE NEWS By JASON COOKFORT MYERS NEWS-PRESSLaw enforcement agencies all over the country including Southwest Florida have acquired hundreds of assault ries and military vehicles through a government program. And the American Civil Liberties Union is concerned. A June study by the ACLU determined policing has become excessively militarized due largely to this program, which has almost no public oversight. Law enforcement agencies say the equipment saves taxpayer money and provides departments with guns, vehicles or other equipment they would need to buy anyway, but for less. For example, the Fort Myers Police Department acquired a $700,000 military vehicle in March for $3,451.How they get itThe Defense Departments 1033 program has allowed police to acquire paramilitary weapons and vehicles at a highly discounted rates. Agencies pay for shipping and repairs of the equipment, resulting in huge savings. The National Defense Authorization Act in 1996-97 authorized the transfer of excess DOD personal property to federal and state agencies in the execution of law enforcement activities to include counterdrug and counterterrorism missions, according to Defense Logistics Agency spokeswoman Mimi Schirmacher. Defense Logistics Agency has managed this program since 1995, she said. This runs the gamut of equipment, including ofce materials, computers, aircraft, boats, vehicles and weapons, Schirmacher wrote in an email. More than $4.3 billion worth of property has been transferred since the programs inception, according to the Defense Logistics Agencys website. About $450 million worth of property was transferred in 2013.Guns and vehiclesData acquired by The News-Press shows Cape Coral and Fort Myers police departments, as well as Lee, Collier and Charlotte county sheriffs ofces, have acquired hundreds of M-16 assault ries through this program. Three of those agencies Fort Myers police, Collier and Charlotte County Sheriffs ofces also acquired a mine-resistant ambush protected (MRAPs) vehicles: 9-foot-tall, 20-ton armored military vehicles. The Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce has been the beneciary of weapons, vehicles and parts from several government programs including the Department of Defenses 1033 program over the last three decades, according to the agencys operational support commander Capt. Sherman Robinson. We mostly use the programs for helicopter parts, he said. But weve gotten all kinds of stuff. And it saves us a lot of money. Vehicles, parts or weapons no longer of use to the government are sold cheaply to local law enforcement agencies. Within the last year, the CCSO has scored a helicopter previously used by the National Guard in Kentucky, and the aforementioned armored MRAP, which the local SWAT team now uses. We even had a military Hummer at one point, Robinson said. The CCSO has acquired 144 assault ries through different programs over the last 30 years or so, he added. The Cape Coral Police Department has acquired 58 M-16 ries from the program, Sgt. Dana Coston conrmed via email. However only a fraction of these are deployed, as ofcers have begun replacing them with personally owned, modern ries. Those 58 ries cost the department $50 each, according to Coston. A similar rie, the AR-15, sells for upward of $1,000. Like any rearm, long guns are used in situations where an ofcer believes that they or another is in imminent danger of serious bodily injury or death, Coston said in an email. Hostage situations, active shooters, barricaded subjects and high-risk car stops are just some examples where police may need these ries, he said The Collier County Sheriffs Ofce acquired an MRAP in May and 371 M-16 ries through the program, Aviation Lt. Mark Cherney said. That rie amount is the second-high est in the state, trailing only the Florida Highway Patrol (415), according to information provided by the Florida Department of Management Services, which regularly checks inventory on equipment acquired through the program. This program saves the taxpayers money, Cherney said. The equipment has been deemed surplus and would be destroyed if not acquired by law enforcement. Its still good for someone else to use, he said. Cherney did not detail why the department would need assault ries or an armored vehicle, deferring to the sheriff. Every law enforcement agency has long guns, he said. Theyre not machine guns. There is an application process for the program, but it has very few restrictions at the state level, said Kara Danksy, author of the June ACLU report titled War Comes Home. Schirmacher said agencies must meet criteria to receive a MRAP. Justication of use, geographical and multijurisdiction use and ability of an agency to pay for repairs are included, Schirmacher wrote in an email.Regulation callThe use of paramilitary vehicles escalates violence, Danksy said. They are not being used in emergency scenarios, but low-level incidents, such as serving warrants, she said. It unnecessarily, aggressively undermines public safety. War Comes Home: The Excessive Militarization of American Policing, a study from 2011-12 analyzed more than 800 SWAT deployments by 20 law enforcement agencies across the country. It shows that SWAT teams were sent in 62 percent of the time during drug searches, and 79 percent of the time they were dispatched were to serve search warrants. The SWAT teams typically use the armored vehicles during their responses. The ACLU would like to see constraints on the program at the local and federal levels, Dansky said. There is a civilians police review board for Fort Myers, but a representative said they deal mostly with internal investigations and not policy or equipment use. Law enforcement is by no means united on this issue, Dansky said. Many have come out against police becoming militarized, saying it harms public perception and trust of police, she said. We are not on opposite sides, she said of the ACLU and police. There are a lot who agree we need to maintain a distinction between police and the military.

The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 7 WORLD/TRAVEL NEWS WASHINGTON (AP) For years, Kurdish ofcials have beseeched the Obama administration to let them buy U.S. weapons. For just as long, the administration has rebuffed Americas closest allies in Iraq. U.S. ofcials insisted they could only sell arms to the government in Baghdad, even after Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki broke a written promise to deliver some to the Kurds. Their peaceful, semiautonomous northern region had been the lone success story to come out of the 2003 U.S. invasion. The U.S. has resisted arming the Kurds because Washingtons aim is to keep Iraq united. A strong Kurdish army could hasten independence for the Kurds. Now, the Islamic State group, which some American ofcials have branded a terrorist army, has overpowered lightly armed Kurdish units, threatening the Kurdish region and the American personnel stationed there. President Barack Obama said Saturday that the U.S. had increased military aid to the Kurds, though he did not elaborate. White House ofcials said Friday that Baghdad had sent the Kurds some weapons, a rst after years of ill relations between the Kurds and the central government. The United States and the Iraqi government have stepped up our military assistance to Kurdish forces as they wage their ght, Obama said. Among the 300 military advisers the Pentagon sent to Iraq in June, dozens are operating out of Irbil, the capital of the Kurdish region, which is now within 25 miles of ghters from the Islamic State. In a bitter irony, the extremists used American armored vehicles and weapons they had seized from the Iraqi military to defeat Kurdish ghters who were blocked from acquiring just such equipment, U.S. and Kurdish ofcials said. The U.S. sought to halt the extremists advance toward Irbil with airstrikes, but Kurdish ofcials also say Washington has promised to begin sending them arms. Pentagon ofcials say their policy hasnt changed they will only sell arms to Baghdad.Kurdish pleas for weapons may finally be heardDONETSK, Ukraine (AP) Ukraines rebels are surrounded and ready to agree to a cease-re to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe, the insur gents new leader said Saturday as conditions deteriorated in the rebel stronghold of Donetsk, artillery thundering through deserted streets. There was no immediate government response to the cease-re statement. Ukrainian troops have made steady advances against the rebels in recent weeks. We are prepared to stop ring to bar the spread of the scale of the humanitar ian catastrophe in Donbass (eastern Ukraine), Aleksandr Zakharchenko, the so-called prime minister of the Donetsk separatists, said in a statement on a rebel website. His motive for offering a cease-re was not clear but his comments could be aimed at increasing the pressure on Ukraine to allow a Russian aid mission. Russia, which the Ukrainian government in Kiev and Western countries allege is supporting the rebels, has called repeatedly for a humanitarian mission into eastern Ukraine. But Kiev and the West suggest that could be just a pretext to send Russian forces into the region and say about 20,000 of them have gathered just across the border. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko issued a statement late Saturday saying that Ukraine is prepared to accept humanitarian assistance in eastern Ukraine. But he said the aid must come in without military accompaniment, it must pass through border checkpoints under Ukrainian control and the mission must be international in character. Poroshenko said he and German Chancellor Angela Merkel discussed German participation in such a mission. In Washington, the White House said President Barack Obama and Merkel agreed that any Russian intervention in Ukraine was unacceptable and would violate international law.Ukraine rebel leader asks for aid, cease-fireSAO PAULO (AP) The devastating news didnt make sense to Brazilian Pierre Freitaz. How was it possible that, at age 17, he was infected with HIV if his only boyfriend seemed t and healthy? Freitaz confesses he knew little about the virus when he was diagnosed in 2004. He didnt understand the difference between the infection and the disease it caused: AIDS. He was confused by the lack of obvious symptoms. Its like I was living in a different part of the world, and I felt immune. While Brazil has long been seen as a global model in the ght against AIDS, activists and ofcials say more and more youths share Freitazs unawareness of HIV risks, or are unconcerned about them. Even as HIV infection rates have begun declining in many other places, cases have been slowly rising in Brazil with the sharpest jump among youths 15 to 24. The numbers are going up. Its a paradox, a shame. After all the money spent on treatment and implementing a policy for every one to receive it, we have these disastrous results, said Dr. Caio Rosenthal, a Sao Paulo-based specialist at the Emilio Ribas Institute of Infectious Diseases. U.N. statistics show 44,000 new infections detected last year in Brazil, up from fewer than 40,000 in 2005 a rate outpacing population growth. The national Health Ministry says overall numbers of HIV infections has reached nearly 800,000. Thats half of all the HIV cases in all of Latin America. By comparison, in the United States, the rate of new HIV cases has dropped by a third over the past decade, according to a study published last month in the Journal of the American Medical Association. About 1.1 million Americans are estimated to be infected with HIV. When the global AIDS epidemic erupted in the 1980s, ofcials here reacted quickly. Brazil carried out widespread sex-education campaigns and became the rst developing nation to offer free antiretroviral treatment on a large scale. The pace of deaths fell and mother-to-child transmission was cut sharply. Ofcials say the per sistent rise in cases could be partly the result of better systems for tracking the virus. Others blame religious opposition to sex-education campaigns, or say some youths mistakenly believe that progress in treating AIDS means its a problem of the past.HIV infections rise, thwart Brazils AIDS efforts( The Dallas Morning News) After the busy summer travel season comes to an end, travelers looking for deals should be in luck. Prices for airfares and hotels drop after Labor Day, so thats a great time to take a vacation for less. Most airfare sales start on a Tuesday morning. I suggest waiting until late Tuesday, or even better, Wednesday morning, to purchase fares. This gives the other airlines time to match the lower fares, giving you more ight options. This is a strategy to use year-round, not just in the fall. Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday are usually the cheapest days of the week to travel within the continental U.S. If you want a threeor fournight vacation, check prices for departure on a Saturday and return on a Tuesday or Wednesday. This can be much cheaper than a Friday to Sunday trip, which are usually the two most expensive days of the week to travel. During the fall, we should see vacation package specials that combine airfare and hotel, especially to tourist destinations. Your best bet to get the cheapest rate is to rst check the airfares for your destination using a exible travel calendar tool. If you are exible not only on the day of the week, but also the date, you should check prices for multiple weeks. Sometimes the prices can vary quite a bit, depending on the advance purchase re quirements. Once youve found the dates with the cheapest airfares, price a vacation package with airfare and hotel bundled, using those dates. As we go into the fall months, everyone will be ghting for your travel dollar, including the hotels.Packages can be the ticket to fall savings AP PHOTOKurdish demonstrators gather in front of the White House in Washington, Saturday. 08102014 Stopin! rff r f ntbnr r fn tbf rfn tb rfntbbtntrf r bPPn r bPP rfn bPPntb fbfbbtrr frt rb rf bPPr rr bPPtfntbtrtntnbfr rf bbr bPPntbntt rtt 50472833 rfrfr rfntnbfrff 50449920 Adult and Pediatric DermatologyDiseases of the Skin, Hair & NailsSkin Cancer Detection & Treatmentseri`s Medicinelor i"cSKC.

About 5,600 people attended the memorial ceremony to mourn the souls of the victims. In this years Nagasaki Peace Declaration, the mayor said, The oath prescribed in the Japanese Constitution that Japan shall renounce war is the founding principle for postwar Japan and Nagasaki; a country and a city which suffered the atomic bomb.Cleric says 7 supporters killed in Pakistan clashLAHORE, Pakistan (AP) Fighting between Pakistani security forces and supporters of a ery anti-government cleric killed seven people as they were heading towards a planned demonstration in the city Lahore, the cleric claimed Saturday. Authorities have contested the clerics claim and put the death toll from clashes to two, including one police ofcer. Cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri, who led anti-corruption protests in January 2013 that paralyzed Pakistans capital, has a network of mosques and religious centers across the country. His supporters briey abducted six police ofcers in the ghting, which began Friday in Punjab province. GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) Israeli airstrikes struck more than 20 targets Saturday in the Gaza Strip as militant rocket re continued toward Israel following the collapse of a three-day truce aimed at ending the war between Israel and Hamas. The Islamic militants resumed their rocket attacks Friday shortly before the 72-hour truce expired, drawing a wave of retaliatory airstrikes that killed at least ve Palestinians. The ghting shattered a brief calm in the monthlong war and dealt a blow to Egyptianled efforts to secure a long-term cease-re between the bitter enemies. Hamas ofcials said the Israel airstrikes Saturday hit houses, mosques, its warehouses and training sites. A handful of rockets landed Saturday morning in Israel. More than 1,900 Gazans have been killed in the four-week war, roughly three-quarters of them civilians, according to Palestinian and United Nations ofcials. Israel disputes that breakdown, saying more militants have been killed. Sixtyseven people have been killed on the Israeli side, including three civilians. The war grew out of the killing of three Israeli teens in the West Bank in June. Israel blamed the killings on Hamas and launched a massive arrest campaign, rounding up hundreds of its members in the West Bank, as Hamas and other militants unleashed rocket re from Gaza. On July 8, Israel launched an air campaign on the coastal territory, sending in ground troops nine days later to target rocket launchers and cross-bor der tunnels built by Hamas for attacks inside Israel. Hamas, which violently seized control of Gaza in 2007, rejected several cease-re offers throughout the ghting. Its primary demand is the lifting of an IsraeliEgyptian blockade imposed after they seized power. Militants had warned they would resume ghting after the cease-re expired unless there was a deal to ease the restrictions. The blockade, which Israel says is needed to prevent weapons from reaching Gaza, has led to widespread hardship. Movement in and out of Gaza is limited, and the economy has ground to a standstill and unemploy ment is over 50 percent. Israel has said that the militants must disarm rst, a demand dismissed by Hamas. A delegation of Palestinian negotiators remained in Cairo in hopes of salvaging the talks. But participants said the negotiations were not going well. The Palestinian delegation met again late Friday with Egyptian mediators. Azzam al-Ahmad, head of the Palestinian delegation, said the delegation would stay in Egypt until it reaches an agreement that ensures the rights of the Palestinian people. We told Egyptians we are staying, he told reporters. The Israeli delegation to the Cairo talks left Egypt on Friday morning, and it was not clear if it would return. There will not be negotiations under re, Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev said. Egypts Foreign Ministry urged restraint by both sides and called for a new cease-re to resume negotiations. The ministry said progress had been made in the talks but did not explain.Rockets, airstrikes in Gaza, Israel AP PHOTOAn Israeli man examines the damage to the roof of his house after a rocket red from Gaza hit in a residential neighborhood of the southern city of Sderot, Israel, Friday. NAYPYITAW, Myanmar (AP) U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Saturday urged China and its neighbors to take new steps to ease tensions over maritime disputes that many fear could spark conict. Under the proposal he presented, China and members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) that have competing claims to territory in the South China Sea would voluntarily halt provocative actions. Recent activity by several nations, particularly China, in disputed areas has heightened concerns about confrontation, which would destabilize the AsiaPacic, interfere with international maritime commerce and roil the global economy. The United States and ASEAN have a common responsibility to ensure the maritime safety of critical global sea lanes and ports, Kerry told foreign ministers, including those from claimant states Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines and Vietnam, on the sidelines of an annual regional security forum. We need to work together to manage tensions in the South China Sea and manage them peacefully and also to manage them on a basis of international law, he said. China contended that someone was distorting the level of tension in the region over the sea disputes. ASEAN generally has backed U.S. suggestions on easing tensions, including endorsing the development of a binding code of conduct to govern activities involving conicting claims. But China has resisted and progress on that code has been halting, if best, over the past several years. Earlier Saturday, the Philippines, a U.S. treaty ally, presented an initiative that incorporated the American concept of a voluntary end to tension-producing activities. Tensions in the South China Sea have worsened in the past few months and continue to deteriorate, Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario said. All of us are seeing an increased pattern of aggressive behavior and provocative actions in the South China Sea, seriously threatening the peace, security, prosperity and stability in the region. In addition to the immediate voluntary cessation of provocative acts, Manilas plan calls for the speedy conclusion of the code of conduct as well as long-term arbitration over disputes that would eventual resolve the claims under the U.N. Law of the Sea. As expected, China reacted coldly to the proposal, saying that the tensions were being overblown. Someone has been exaggerating or even playing up the so-called tension in the South China Sea, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told reporters. We do not agree with such a practice, and we call for vigilance in the motives behind them. Wang, who later met with Kerry, was visibly annoyed that Kerry kept him waiting about 30 minutes for their discussion. Among the recent provocative actions cited by the U.S. and ASEAN members was Chinas deployment of a deep-sea oil rig in early May near the Paracel islands, which are claimed by both Hanoi and Beijing. Although the Chinese removed the rig two months later, the incident continues to rankle Vietnam.Kerry seeks to calm South China Sea tensions KERRY rfntbfrffr frnrtb rfrffrn CosmeticFacialSurgeonrrfntbtrfntnbnrrnnrb nrbrnr rrnn nrbrr f r n rntnbnr Seminar CASTLECONNOLLYTOPDOCTORS } VOTED 486346 50468606 Extended Hours: Tuesday thru Friday Open during lunch and until 6:00PM coastaldermatology.net (Left to Right) Stephen A.

The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 9 WORLD NEWS WASHINGTON (AP) Caterpillar has evacuated a handful of employees from Liberia. Canadian Overseas Petroleum Ltd. has suspended a drilling project. British Airways has canceled ights to the region. ExxonMobil and Chevron are waiting to see whether health ofcials can contain the danger. The Ebola outbreak, which has claimed nearly 1,000 lives, is disrupting business and inicting economic damage in the three African countries at the center of the crisis: Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. So far, analysts say the crisis doesnt threaten the broader African or global economies. We must make sure it is controlled and contained as quickly as possible, said Olusegun Aganga, trade minister in Nigeria, which has conrmed nine cases of Ebola. Once that is done, I dont think it will have a lasting impact on the economy. The World Health Organization on Friday declared the outbreak an international public health emergency. The WHO didnt recommend any travel or trade bans. But it cautioned anyone who had had close contact with Ebola patients to avoid international travel and urged exit screenings at international airports and border crossings. When you have a widespread outbreak of Ebola, you can end up with a panic, said John Campbell, senior fellow for Africa studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. People wont go to work. Expatriates will leave. Economic activity will slow. Fields wont get planted. The World Bank estimates that the outbreak will shrink economic growth in Guinea, where the crisis emerged in March, from 4.5 percent to 3.5 percent this year. Ama Egyaba BaiduForson, an economist at IHS Global Insight who focuses on sub-Saharan Africa, is cutting her forecasts for growth this year in Liberia and Sierra Leone. She warned that prices would rise as food and other staples become scarce and that the regions already fragile governments would run up big budget decits in ghting Ebola. Baidu-Forson says the countries hit by Ebola ultimately could require nancial help from the International Monetary Fund. In the meantime, multinational companies that do business in the resource-rich region are scrambling to respond to the crisis. Among them: Heavy equipment manufacturer Caterpillar Inc., based in Peoria, Ill., has evacuated less than 10 people from Liberia, company spokeswoman Barbara Cox said by email. In a statement, Caterpillar said: The health and safety of our people is our top prior ity.... We will continue to monitor the situation closely. British Airways has announced that its suspending ights to and from Liberia and Sierra Leone through Aug. 31 due to the deteriorating public health situation in both countries. Tawana Resources, an Australian iron-ore company, said it had suspended all non-essential eld activities within Liberia and sent all non-essential African workers, expatriates and contractors home. London-based mining company African Minerals has begun imposing health checks and travel restrictions on employees in the region. Canadian Overseas Petroleum, based in Calgary, has stopped drilling in Liberia. And some of its expatriate employees have left the country. ExxonMobil said in a statement that its ofces remain open and that were taking precautions to ensure the health and safety of our employees. The company has ofces in Liberia, Nigeria and several other African nations. Chevron, which has an ofce in the Liberian capital of Monrovia and is in the process of exploring for oil off Liberias coast, said its closely monitoring the outbreak of Ebola virus in West Africa. But the company wouldnt say whether it was withdrawing any employees or taking any other steps as a result of the outbreak. So far, the economic damage has not affected West Africas biggest economy, Nigerias, though the disease has already spread to that country.Ebola starting to take an economic toll in region AP FILE PHOTOIn this June 20, 2012, photo, earth-moving tractors and equipment made by Peoria, Ill.-based Caterpillar Inc. are seen in Clinton, Ill.

Page 10 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 WEATHER/NATIONAL NEWS WASHINGTON (LA Times) Four in 10 U.S. households are straining nancially ve years after the Great Recession many struggling with tight credit, soaring education debt and profound issues related to savings and retirement, according to a new Federal Reserve survey. The wide-ranging Fed study assessing the economic well-being of Americans shows that the economy has made progress to the point where most households said they were living comfortably or doing OK nancially. But almost 40 percent reported last fall that their families were just getting by or struggling to do so, and more people said their nancial situation was worse rather than better off compared with ve years earlier. The survey, conducted in September and reported Thursday, found that the recession had forced substantial shares of the population to put off big purchases or delay major decisions such as moving to a new city or getting married. And many people leaned on others to get through the hard times. The survey indicates that many households have been providing assistance to one another during periods of nancial distress, the 100-page Fed report said, noting that 34 percent helped friends or family with money. Overall, the Feds ndings are consistent with many other studies and data depicting the deep and lingering effects of the 2007-09 recession. They provide fresh evidence that the recovery has been slow and uneven, general ly skewed to the wealthy, and esh out with numbers some commonly held assumptions. The survey found, for example, that 15 percent of those who had retired since 2008 had done so earlier than planned because of the downturn. Only 4 percent said they had retired later than expected. Based on demographics, that translates into roughly 2 million more people retiring since 2008 than if the recession had not occurred. This suggests that some of the folks who dropped out of the labor force during the recession will not be returning, said Scott Hoyt, an economist at Moodys Analytics. That could factor in to the current debate inside the Fed and among academics about the extent of labor market slack, that is, the number of people who are not in the workforce but willing and capable of lling a job. Fed Chairwoman Janet L. Yellen has argued in favor of easy-money policies largely on the basis of her belief that there is signicant slack in the economy, but others have maintained that there are far fewer such workers who are waiting in the wings. The Feds report, however, captured a snapshot of households last fall, so there is no comparable data from prior years to assess changes over time. Since then, the recovery stalled in the winter, bounced back in the spring and produced six straight months of job growth surpassing 200,000 each. The central bank conducts a far more extensive survey of consumer nances every three years, but the results of the most recent one, for 2013, wont be released until early next year. Even so, this latest snapshot, which the Fed said was aimed at monitoring the recovery and risks to nancial stability, adds to the understanding of the severity of the Great Recessions effect on households and individuals. The report suggested that Americans had a fairly positive outlook about their nances. More than 60 percent said they expected their income to stay the same in the next 12 months, with 21 percent looking for it to increase. Only 16 percent expected it to decline. Similarly, a plurality of homeowners 60 percent of respondents said they own homes said they expected their houses to rise in value over the next year. The recession has turned more Americans into renters, yet the survey suggests thats not because they arent inter ested in being homeowners. The most common reasons people gave for renting were because they couldnt afford a down payment or couldnt qualify for a mortgage. On loans in general, about one-third of consumers were turned down or given less credit than they had sought. An additional 19 percent reported putting off applying because they gured they would be rejected. More recently, however, there are indications that lenders are loosening up. Separately, the Fed reported Thursday that consumer borrowing rose in June at a solid 6.5 percent annual pace, mostly the result of gains in auto and student loans. About one-fourth of households have education debt of some kind, according to the survey. The average amount was $27,840 a hefty sum that left nearly one-fth of the borrowers behind in payments or facing collections. Financial strains also were evident in health spending: About onethird of respondents said they had put off medical care in the prior 12 months because they could not afford it. Also, fewer than 40 percent of households had a rainy-day fund to cover expenses for three months.Many Americans are still struggling financially Publication date: 8/10/14 Port Charlotte Tampa Bradenton Englewood Fort Myers Myakka City Punta Gorda Lehigh Acres Arcadia Hull Bartow Winter Haven Plant City Brandon St. Petersburg Wauchula Longboat Key Placida Osprey Limestone Apollo Beach Venice Ft.

PETERSBURG The bus was late. The Mob was restless. The charter booked to take about 35 members of Ralphs Mob, an independent group of supporters for the Tampa Bay Rowdies of the North American Soccer League, had not yet arrived to pick up the traveling fans for a rivalry game against the Fort Lauderdale Strikers. They milled about the parking lot of Al Lang Stadium, home of the Rowdies, making small talk and grumbling about the $4 parking fee. The smokers snatched the chance for a few quick drags. Im very well, thank you, a grandmotherly woman named Lindsey said in greeting a friend, fully decked out in green and gold. She waved to an empty curb. But the bus isnt here yet. The charter bus nally arrived at noon and the traveling members of Ralphs Mob named for the mascot Ralph Rowdie from the original NASL team load the bus with team ags and coolers with provisions for the four-hour trip. They also remembered to bring along the Coastal Cup, the ceremonial trophy for the annual series against the Strikers.

PORT CHARLOTTE A group of reporters surrounded Josh Sales locker at Tropicana Field during the Tampa Bay Rays Winter Development Program seven months ago. They wanted to know what he had learned from his suspension that cost him the 2013 season, if he felt he had matured in the year he spent sitting at home 3,000 miles away in Seattle. The 23-year-old outelder answered all of the questions openly. He talked about how demor alizing the suspension was for him. How he needed to become a better person. How important it was for him to grow up. How thrilled he was that the Rays were giving him another shot. Seven months later, Sale gets back in swing of things FLORIDA STATE LEAGUE: CharlotteBy JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITERSALE SALE | 8Rory retains lead By MARK LAMPORTSTOKESREUTERS LOUISVILLE, Ky. Rory McIlroy, seeking his fourth major title, ended a pulsating third round of low scoring and frequent lead changes to preserve his one-shot advantage at the PGA Championship on Saturday. A stroke in front over night heading into what is traditionally known as moving day, the British Open champion birdied three of the last four holes on a receptive, rainsodden Valhalla Golf Club layout to card a four-under-par 67. In pursuit of a third consecutive victory on the PGA Tour, McIlroy fended off a series of challenges to keep his position at the top of a congested leaderboard as he posted a 13-under total of 200 in the years fourth and final major. Austrian Bernd Wiesberger, one of six players who held at least a share of the lead in a wildly fluctuating third round, was alone in second place after matching the days best score with a 65. Its not the biggest lead Ive ever had, but Im still in control of this golf tournament, said world No. 1 McIlroy, who had been two strokes ahead after seven holes before bogeying the par-three eighth.

(Were already getting the second part, the rst is thankfully yet to come.) Also this: Those Bucs jerseys were as bad as we originally thought. I remember having an ar gument with a colleague about 18 years ago that Tiger Woods would be just another guy on the PGA Tour. It took me 18 years, but Im nally right. Dont weep for Tiger, by the way; hes still got a while to go before hes teeing up ceremonial drives at Augusta National. As an added exercise, if Tiger eventually (many moons from now) starts doing the ceremonial drive at the Masters, who would it be with? Phil Mickelson, obviously. But who would be the third? Jose-Maria Olazabel? Bubba Watson? College athletes of the world unite; youve nothing to lose but your chains. (The money-generating college athletes, that is. There are plenty of athletes that will have to go on being impoverished.) Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant withdrew from Team USA consideration saying he was drained. Yeah, having your free agency a year away and watching Paul George snap his leg in an exhibition game can be pretty draining. Through Friday night, the NFLs experiment of pushing back extra-point kicks to the 15 yard line (the equivalent of a 32-yard eld goal) has yielded two misses. So is that progress, somehow? Small sample-size analysis of the David Price-Drew Smyly trade: The Tigers won Prices rst start. The Rays lost Smylys. Clearly, Tampa Bay got hosed in this deal. As mentioned in todays piece about professional soccer in Florida (see Page 1), the MLS seems to believe the Orlando City expansion team will draw fans from Tampa Bay. Is this the same Tampa Bay where baseball fans in Tampa cant be bothered to cross the Howard Frankland Bridge? Landon Donovan announced his forthcoming retirement from the MLS this week, leading to some reactions that he was a player who got too much hype for playing most of his career in a mediocre league (by global standards). But Ryan Giggs was an elite player for a long time and he never took Wales anywhere.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.comOnly season-ticket holders are hurting so far SHORE LINES RobSHORE SHORE@SUN-HERALD.COMSPORTS WRITER | GOLF SCOREBOARDPGA of AmericaPGA CHAMPIONSHIP At Valhalla Golf Club Louisville, Ky.

Andrea Lee, Hermosa Beach, Calif. (138), 4 and 3. Park holds LPGA leadBELMONT, Mich. Inbee Park figures the best defense against the nerves that come with being in the lead is a hot putter. Using a new blade putter this week, Park made two long birdie putts on the back nine Saturday and finished with a 3-under 68 to remain a stroke ahead after the third round of the Meijer LPGA Classic. I feel like I havent holed that kind of putt for a long time and its all of a sudden happening this week, Park said. This putter, it seems like its going really on line and I feel like Im stroking the ball better this week. The third-ranked South Korean player holed a 25-footer from the fringe on the par-3 14th, bogeyed the par-4 15th after missing a 3-foot par try and rebounded with a 35-foot birdie putt on the par-4 16th. The 26-year-old Park won six times last season and took the Manulife Financial in June in Canada for her 10th LPGA Tour title. She had a 13-under 200 total at Blythefield Country Club. South Korean rookie Mirim Lee was second after a 67. Norways Suzann Pettersen was another stroke back after a 69. Cristie Kerr matched the low round of the tournament with a 64 to jump 44 spots to a tie for 12th at 5 under. She hit 10 of 13 fairways and had only 26 putts. Wie sidelined by finger injury: Michelle Wies finger injury that forced her to withdraw from the LPGA Championship next week at Monroe Golf Club and will sideline her at least three to five weeks. IMG Golf said Wie has a stress reaction in a bone in her right index finger. The U.S. Womens Open champion withdrew from the Meijer LPGA Classic on Thursday after playing nine holes in the first round. Gillman, Henderson advance to final: In Glen Cove, N.Y., Kristen Gillman and Brooke Mackenzie Henderson won semifinal matches to advance to todays 36-hole final in the U.S. Womens Amateur at Nassau Country Club. The 16-year-old Gillman of Austin, Texas, beat 15-year-old Andrea Lee of Hermosa Beach, Calif., 4 and 3. Henderson, the 16-year-old Canadian who is No. 2 in the world amateur ranking, edged 16-year-old Hannah OSullivan of Paradise Valley, Ariz., 1 up.

McIlroy was delighted with his finish to the round, sinking a 20-footer on 15, a two-footer on 16 and getting up and down from a greenside bunker to birdie the par-five last. I just knew that I needed to make a couple coming down the back nine to keep the lead I had or at least be tied for the lead going into tomorrow, said the 25-year-old Northern Irishman. The two birdies on 15 and 16 were huge. To get up and down out of the bunker on 18 was big. Its not like its that huge of a difference between tied for the lead and being one ahead going into tomorrow, just sort of makes you feel better about yourself going to bed tonight. Surprise package Wiesberger, who had missed the cut in four of his previous five major appearances, was still coming to terms with his lofty position going into the final round. I didnt expect any of this really coming into this week, said the 28-year-old from Vienna, a two-time winner on the European Tour. I knew I was prepared well and the course really suits my eye. So far Ive taken advantage of this and its great to finish the round with three birdies in a row, basically tap-in birdies as well. That gives me hopefully good momentum going into tomorrow. Its a new situation for me in a major championship. American young gun Rickie Fowler, a top-five finisher at each of the years previous three majors, was at 11 under after firing a 67 with 2005 PGA Championship winner Phil Mickelson (67) and Australian Jason Day (69) a further stroke adrift. Left-hander Mickelson, who played with Wiesberger in the third round, vaulted into contention for a sixth career victory in the majors with four birdies in the last five holes. Its so fun for me to be back in the thick of it, have a chance, being in contention heading into (today), said the American. My game feels so close to clicking. And when I say clicking, shooting really low. Former British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa (67) and Swedish world number four Henrik Stenson (67) were among a group of four at nine under on a high-quality leaderboard that sets up an intriguing battle for the title. However, most eyes in todays final round will be focused on McIlroy, who has produced spectacular form over the past month and came into this week as an overwhelming favorite. The Northern Irishman completed a wire-to-wire victory at last months British Open before winning the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational last Sunday in his next start. I came from three shots behind last week, said McIlroy. The guys got pretty close to me at the (British) Open Championship. They got close to me again today, and I was able to respond like I did on the back nine. Im loving it. Its where I want to be. Its the best place to be in the golf tournament.LEADFROM PAGE 1 sNEW=.......................................................................................................................

After watching video of Fridays 16-10 loss at Jacksonville in the rst preseason game, Smith asked for patience. You guys (in the media) dont lead the charge to start overreacting, Smith said Saturday. Just like when you come out to practice, the rst preseason game, dont start printing up the Super Bowl tickets or cutting everybody on the team. Let things play out a little bit. Thats what preseason games are for. Josh McCown was under siege and completed just 2 of 4 passes for 20 yards. He also was sacked once and fumbled twice (losing one), and safety Winston Guy returned an interception 68 yards for a touchdown. Much of the pressure came from inside as starting guards Jamon Meredith and Oniel Cousins were beaten. Meredith also had a false start, and Cousins was agged for hands to the face (although that was declined). Smith said he believed right tackle Demar Dotson and center Evan Dietrcih-Smith played well but there was plenty of blame to go around. Dotsons holding penalty negated a 17-yard completion to Chris Owusu. Starting left tackle Anthony Collins yielded a sack to end Chris Clemons. Demar Dotson played well, Smith said. I mean he had the penalty that really hurt us. Most of those arent normally called. Hes been that way throughout. Hes not the only one. Evan (DietrichSmith) played well. We didnt play as well at the guard position as we needed to, but we needed to see them in that role. As a result of the pressure, it was difcult to evaluate McCown, signed during the offseason to supplant Mike Glennon as the starter. He showed mobility but his throw under duress to Mike Evans was intercepted. It was tough, but we got a chance to evaluate Josh under tough cir cumstances, Smith said. Thats why hes a mobile quarterback sometimes. Sometimes, you have to move around a little bit. Josh will learn. He took a hit as he scrambled one time. You cant take that hit. But well have better protection for him, and hell be able to have more success. Any time you throw a pick, its bad. Theres a lot of people involved. We looked at the route. Was the split right? Was the receiver where he needed to be? Of course, there was pressure. Thats part of it also. All of that comes into play.Lovie preaches patience after lossBy RICK STROUDTAMPA BAY TIMES NFL: Tampa BayAP PHOTOTommy Streeter catches a pass for a touchdown as he is hit by Jacksonvilles Nate Stupar during Friday nights game. AP PHOTOJohnny Manziel breaks the tackle of Detroit Lions outside linebacker Kyle Van Noy in the rst half of Saturdays preseason game.DETROIT Johnny Manziel looked sharp in his preseason debut, but the Cleveland Browns lost to the Detroit Lions 13-12 on Saturday night. Manziel entered the game as a backup in the middle of the second quarter, and although he couldnt take his team to the end zone, he did go 7 of 11 for 63 yards, completing one more pass than starting quarterback Brian Hoyer. Manziel also ran for 27 yards on six carries, including a 16-yard scramble in the third quarter. Matthew Stafford led the Lions to a eld goal on his only drive of the game. Star receiver Calvin Johnson didnt play. Cleveland receiver Nate Burleson, who played in Detroit the last four seasons, also sat out this game. Detroits Kellen Moore threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Corey Fuller with 1:05 remaining in the game, and Giorgio Tavecchio made the long extra point to give the Lions the one-point win. Giants 20, Steelers 16: In East Rutherford, N.J., Rashad Jennings had a 73-yard touchdown run in the first quarter and Curtis Painters scoring pass with 2:50 left gave the New York Giants a preseason victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Howard Jones had given the Steelers a 16-13 lead when he picked up backup quarterback Ryan Nassibs fumble and went 28 yards for a touchdown with 10:16 to go. But Painter led a 12-play, 80-yard drive and threw a 3-yard scoring pass to Corey Washington for the victory. Eli Manning played four series and didnt complete a pass in two attempts for the Giants. They opened the preseason last week with a 17-13 win over Buffalo in the Hall of Fame. Ben Roethlisberger played only one series for the Steelers (0-1). He was 1 of 2, with a 46-yarder to rookie third-round pick Dri Archer (Venice High School) to the Giants 14. Titans C Spencer carted off, 2 linebackers hurt: In Nashville, Tenn., Tennessee Titans backup center Chris Spencer injured his left ankle in the second quarter and was taken to the locker room on a cart in the preseason opener against Green Bay. Spencer had replaced starter Brian Scwhenke when he went down on a running play by Bishop Sankey. Titans linebacker Colin McCarthy hurt a shoulder in the third quarter and Packers linebacker Joe Thomas injured his knee.Manziel shows off fancy footworkBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NFL PRESEASON ROUNDUP MINNEAPOLIS Police were looking for a gunman who shot nine people, including a Minnesota Vikings player, inside a downtown Minneapolis club just before bar closing time Saturday morning. Off-duty police ofcers responded to the shots red and found nine people injured with gunshot wounds, including one victim who needed CPR at the scene. Police said Saturday that the incident is gang-related, with the suspect targeting one of the victims. Among the injured was Linval Joseph, a defensive tackle with the Minnesota Vikings. In a statement, the Vikings described Joseph as an innocent bystander and said he was hit in the calf by a stray bullet. Joseph was treated and released at a hospital, the Vikings said. Bills cautious after LT Glenn cleared for practice: Cordy Glenns long-awaited return to practice is not an indication that the Buffalo Bills starting left tackle is anywhere close to being ready to play. Far from it, coach Doug Marrone said hours after Glenn passed his physical and was added to the active roster following an undisclosed illness. Were going to take it very, very slowly, Marrone said of Glenn, sidelined since training camp opened July 20. Marrone didnt rule out Glenn not being ready for the start of the regular season. Cowboys CB Carr in camp after mothers death: Brandon Carr was back on the field with the Dallas Cowboys after missing the first two weeks of training camp to be with his mother in the final days of her long battle with breast cancer. Carr missed the first 11 workouts and the preseason opener at San Diego on Thursday, a day after the funeral for 59-year-old Kathy Robinson Carr. She died July 30 in Carrs hometown of Flint, Mich. The service was a week later, and Carr was in California two days after that. This is my safe haven, out on this field, Carr said. When I get out here there isnt many distractions. I am in my comfort zone. It feels good to finally get back out on the field with these guys and get back to my routine. Around the league: St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher expects Sam Bradford to play in next weeks preseason game against the Green Bay Packers, the quarterbacks first time facing competition since he injured his left knee last October. Jake Matthews gave Atlanta coach Mike Smith reason to think the No. 6 overall draft pick has potential to become an elite tackle after grading out well in the Falcons 16-10 victory against the Miami Dolphins in the exhibition opener for both teams. In Owings Mills, Md., the practice between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers went off without a hitch, as the teams took to heart the coaches message to play it safe. Defensive end Jason Hatcher, who signed a four-year, $27.5 million contract as a free agent from the Dallas Cowboys, passed his physical and practiced with the Washington Redskins.Vikings player among 9 hurt in shooting NFL NOTEBOOKFROM WIRE REPORTS LOUISVILLE, Ky. First-year Louisville coach Bobby Petrino is well known for his offensive expertise and the high expectations he places on his quarterback to make his multiple sets work. Even in the rst week of practice. The Cardinals initial workouts have yielded encouraging signs about presumed starting QB Will Gardner and other offensive skill players. But Petrino said the whole unit has a way to go to be productive and expects improvement over the next few practices. Offensively, it just takes a little time to get to where you need to be, the coach said during Saturdays media day session. Execution on both sides of the ball is important for Louisville as it prepares to enter the Atlantic Coast Conference. With defending national champion Florida State, Clemson and Notre Dame on the schedule, the Cardinals must be able to score and Petrino believes that starts with practice prociency. Gardner has taken that message to heart. Were still putting in the offense in and you cant really stress about it, the redshirt sophomore said, but you still have to have that sense of urgency and still be able to have fun. For Petrino its all about progress, and he believes Gardner and the offense will make it in week two of camp. Im sure he feels like hes not executing the way he was at the end of the spring, and hes not, the coach said. But its all 11 guys. ... Hes missed some throws, but hes also had times where hes capable of completing 10 straight passes. Louisville opens on Sept. 1 against Miami. Around the nation: Nebraska middle linebacker Michael Rose will undergo knee surgery next week, making him the third key member of the defense in three days to be ruled out for the season, including nickel back Charles Jackson (knee injury) and safety LeRoy Alexander (suspendsion). Suspended Michigan wide receiver Csonte York is facing assault charges. Online court records show York was charged Friday with one count of aggravated assault and two counts of assault or assault and battery. The charges are all misdemeanors and are related to a July 18 incident. Notre Dame will be without receiver Torii Hunter Jr. to start the football season. Hunter is expected to be out four to six weeks after tearing his left groin, coach Brian Kelly announced. Hunter, whose father plays for the Detroit Tigers, sat out his freshman year after breaking his leg in a high school all-star game.Petrino: Louisville offense has room to growBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS COLLEGE FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK .................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................4z c l................................................................................................................................................................................................. ................................................ .

Page 4 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 cheerful, bearded fellow from the front of the bus. He held up small sheets of plastic with the Ralphs Mob logo. I have stickers! He walked down the aisle passing them out. I want beer, quipped someone at the back, not stickers. For now, this is the highest level of professional soccer in Florida. While growing, the sport is still nding its way in the Sunshine State, still searching for its fan base. But there are hard-core soccer fans in Florida. Four hours (and two stops for bathroom and smoke breaks) later, the busload of Ralphs Mob arrived at Lockhart Stadium in Fort Laduerdale, South Floridas home for soccer since 1977 rst for the Strikers of the original NASL and then Major League Soccers Miami Fusion. Its not exactly Mecca, but its heaven to the traveling members of Ralphs Mob. They just want to watch their club, drink some more beer, have a singsong in the stands and soak in the soccer atmosphere. That same day, a friendly between Manchester United and Real Madrid drew a U.S.-record 109,312 fans to Michigan Stadium. From all appear ances, Lockhart Stadium was lucky to draw one percent of that gathering, but nobody present considered this a minor-league game in a minor sport. We had a good turnout, said Tom De Pinto, a 23-year-old Rowdies season-ticket holder. We brought the drum. We might run this place. Hours laters, the travelers headed back to the charter bus, dispirited after a 1-0 loss. They packed up their ags and banners for the return to St. Petersburg. The Coastal Cup remained on the bleachers untouched. Hey, dont forget the Cup, called one member of the Mob. That drew a shake of the head. It might not be ours much longer, came the sad response. SEEDS OF SOCCER DOUBT Some of Ralphs Mob were fans without a team when MLS folded the Tampa Bay Mutiny along with the Miami Fusion in 2002, after four consecutive seasons of declining attendance and a year removed from the lowest average attendance in its history (13,756). The stigma still haunts Florida, even as Orlando City prepares to join MLS as an expansion franchise in 2015. The league was not convinced South Florida with major league teams in baseball, basketball, football and hockey would support the Fusion in terms of fans or corporate sponsorship. Its been a common theme for Miami, which played for ve seasons in the original NASL as the Gatos and Toros, never averaging more than 7,340 fans even during the leagues boom years starting in the mid-1970s. The Mutiny were eliminated in part because the team never found local ownership, having been stewarded by the league since its inception in 1996. The decision to leave both markets for the 2002 seasons was extremely difcult, said MLS commissioner Don Garber, in a statement announcing the decision. I can assure all of our fans that we worked tirelessly to nd a plan that would have allowed us to remain in both of those markets. The decision shocked fans of the Mutiny. Tampa Bays history in the sport goes back to 1975 with the original Rowdies, who won the NASL championship in their rst season and were one of that leagues top draws during their rst incarnation. The Tampa Bay Mutinty came along in 1996, one of the charter members of MLS when the league kicked off. I didnt think they were going, said Eric Green, a season-ticket holder with the current Rowdies and a former ticket-holder of the Mutiny. I didnt think attendance was that bad. The team averaged 13,106 fans in 2000, its high point, but their home still felt empty in 65,857-seat Raymond James Stadium. They played in too big of a stadium, Green said. They played in Raymond James that was crazy. But I thought they were staying. It actually surprised me. It didnt make a lot of sense. They were building. But seeds of doubt about the franchise were planted much earlier. After being a season-ticket holder for the Mutinys rst season, Graham Tyler gave up his tickets out of frustration with the lack of marketing. The rst game, we had a good crowd, said Tyler, an English ex-pat living in Fort Ogden. After that, you didnt know if they were playing at home, when they were playing. A professional sports franchise would usually go farther aeld from its home base, they would market in Port Charlotte. They never did that, they never did anything. You never knew what was going on. Orlando City Soccer Club now gets the chance to be soccers ag-bearer for the state of Florida and atone for the sins of the Fusion and Mutiny. The purple-clad franchise begins play as an MLS expansion team next year after four seasons in USL Pro the third-tier professional league in American soccer. Orlando City fullled two MLS prerequisites missing from the Fusion and Mutiny strong ownership and a soccer-specic facility. The team nalized plans last week for a $110 million stadium in downtown Orlando that will seat 19,500. Its a vital step for the growth of a team, as Orlando City coach Adrian Heath knows from his days growing up as a supporter of Stoke City in England. I think the most important thing for us is that well have a home and thats going to be the home, maybe, for the next 100 years, he said. Thats a lot of years, thats where you play. Thats where you amass your memories. ROWDIES FANS NOT READY TO JUMP SHIP While Orlando City hopes to draw from Tampa Bay a great market for Orlando City to draw from, Philadelphia Union CEO Nick Sakiewicz told MLSSoccer.com some Rowdies fans will never accept the team. A skirmish between supporters of Ralphs Mob and Orlando Citys Iron Lion Firm and the Ruckus supporters on July 6 at Al Lang Stadium didnt help. Six fans were arrested and others ejected from the stadium. The Rowdies added the incident to a legal complaint against the stadium operator, the St. Petersburg Baseball Commission, a complaint insisting the SPBC wasnt properly maintaining the facility. How that incident played out and how it happened Ive been around and thats the rst time it has happened, Rowdies general manager Perry Van Der Beck said. And it will be the last. De Pinto, for one, has no intention of switching allegiances. No I will never go to an Orlando game, he said. I might go just to nd the (opposing) supporters. But I will never wear purple. You will never see me cheering for City. Besides, the Rowdies have their own MLS aspirations. In December, St. Petersburg millionaire Bill Edwards bought a controlling interest in the team and promised fans that he would lead the team to the next level. Its the sort of ownership push the Tampa Bay Mutiny never got. The team also has a local TV deal to televise Saturday night home games. Were doing what we need to do as far as being one of the best teams in the country, Van Der Beck said. Obviously we have the ownership group thats looking at what it has to do. Mr. Edwards is taking steps with the stadium and the condition in general. Thats our goal. Edwards said last month that St. Petersburg would be a perfect place for an MLS team. But a new stadium has proven elusive. Major League Baseballs Tampa Bay Rays also have been vocal about the need for a new stadium and Orlando Citys promotion to MLS might pre-empt the Rowdies plans. In discussing future expansion plans, MLS ofcials have mentioned Sacramento, Calif., Las Vegas and Minnesotas Twin Cities but not Tampa Bay. No major league has attempted teams in the Tampa Bay and Orlando markets simultaneously just the Arena Football League. For now, the city of St. Petersburg has attempted to appease Edwards and the Rowdies by replacing the playing surface at Al Lang Stadium, a 67-year-old facility built for spring training baseball. Still, Van Der Beck has reason to sound upbeat about soccers future in Florida. I think professional soccer at this moment in time is probably at its highest peak, said Van Der Beck, himself a veteran of the Rowdies from the old NASL. Back in the NASL in the late s or early s, we had 26, 27, 28, then teams started going away. Now, each small city or large city seems to have a soccer franchise. Orlando City sold about 7,500 season tickets during a promotion that ran during the World Cup, and Jacksonville will join Tampa Bay and Fort Lauderdale in the NASL as an expansion team next year. In Miami, David Beckhams MLS ownership group is trying to nd a stadium site the league is waiting to see how that plays out before awarding the group an expansion team. Tampa Bays attendance has increased each year since the franchise was rechristened the Rowdies in 2011, averaging 4,845 this season.

I think thats why Orlando they caught it at the right time, really.Contact Rob Shore at shore@sun-herald.com or at 941-2061174.SOCCERFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY ROB SHOREFans of Orlando City Soccer Club hoist banners during the teams friendly against the Tampa Bay Rowdies on July 6 at Al Lang Stadium in St. Petersburg.

(NL) +130 | SCOREBOARD | QUICK HITSVENUS TOPS SERENA IN ALLWILLIAMS SEMIFINALMONTREAL Venus beat Serena in an all-Williams seminal in the Rogers Cup. Venus topped Serena 6-7 (2), 6-2, 6-3 on Saturday in the hard-court event for her rst victory over her sister since 2009 in Dubai. The 32-year-old Serena, ranked No. 1 in the world for the 200th career week, leads the series 14-11 and had won the last ve matches. The 34-year-old Venus, ranked 26th, ended her sisters 14-match Rogers Cup winning streak that dated to wins at the 2011 and 2013 tournaments in Toronto. Serena skipped the 2012 event in Montreal. She plays third-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska, who beat Ekaterina Makarova 7-6 (1), 7-6 (3), in todays nal. I denitely dont want to have a letdown and get out there and not play at least half as well, Venus said. I dont want to put any pressure on myself, but I want to go out there and perform just as well. It would mean a lot to me because Ive been dreaming of winning a tournament at this level since I got back on tour. In Toronto, Frances Jo-Wilfried Tsonga advanced to the Rogers Cup final, following his string of upsets with a 6-4, 6-3 victory over seventh-seeded Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria. Tsonga, seeded 13th, beat top-ranked Novak Djokovic on Thursday and eighthseeded Andy Murray on Friday. An American tennis player who served a 12-month ban after getting caught with human growth hormone has earned a wild card into the U.S. Open. Wayne Odesnik, a 28-year-old based in Florida and ranked 168th, hasnt played in the U.S. Opens main draw since 2009. He got a spot from the U.S. Tennis Association for this years tournament based on results at USTA Pro Circuit events.COLLEGE ATHLETICSOBannon ready to keep fighting: Ed OBannon knows its not over, far from it. Hes ready for the appeals to the ruling that could change major college sports forever. After five years of battling the NCAA, OBannon isnt about to back away from the fight. Not when he is such a believer in the cause. You want to go to the Supreme Court, lets go, he said in an interview with The Associated Press. Ive got my ticket already. A federal judge on Friday issued an injunction paving the way for future college football and basketball players to receive payments for service to their schools.SWIMMINGLedecky breaks world record in 400 free: In Irvine, Calif., Katie Ledecky broke the world record in the 400-meter freestyle at the U.S. national championships, becoming the first woman since Janet Evans to own world marks in the 400, 800 and 1,500 freestyles at the same time. The 17-year-old from Bethesda, Md., won in 3 minutes, 58.86 seconds. WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. Tony Stewart didnt compete at Watkins Glen International last year, breaking his leg in a sprint car accident in Iowa days before the NASCAR Sprint Cup series race at a track hed dominated for a decade. Stewart broke two bones in his right leg and was sidelined for the remainder of the season, ending his streak of consecutive Cup starts at 521. I still deal with pain every day, but thats something thats not even going to probably go away by the end of the year, Stewart said this week in Iowa at the Knoxville Nationals to mark the one-year anniversary of his crash. The reality of it is there might be a point where it will never totally go away, but it doesnt keep me from doing what I love to do. Smoke is back at Watkins Glen in need of a win, and the weatherman is cooperating. The forecast for todays Cheez-It 355 at The Glen is sunny with temperatures in the mid-80s. That means Stewart will be in his element. This is the part of the year when the temperatures are at their highest, and we tend to pick up, It kind of plays into our hands, said Stewart, who qualied 13th. A lot of guys panic because they know its going to get slick. I get excited when I know its going to get slick. Stewart ranks 19th in points with only ve races remaining before the 10-race Chase for the Cup championship begins. Six drivers and 53 points separate Stewart from the top-16 cutoff necessary to make the Chase, but win today and hes in. Ambrose wins Nationwide race: With The King atop the pit box at Watkins Glen International, Marcos Ambrose wasnt about to disappoint. The aggressive Australian dueled early with Kyle Busch to fall off the pace in the NASCAR Nationwide race, then was flawless the rest of the way, holding off Busch at the end to win for the fourth time in his last four starts. I had my tongue hanging out the whole day, Ambrose said. There was nothing left. I tried to hold him back. Another lap and I would have been in trouble.Stewart ready to heat upBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AUTO RACING ROUNDUPAP PHOTOMarcos Ambrose celebrates in Victory Lane after winning the NASCAR Nationwide Series race on Saturday at Watkins Glen.

In the St. Louis Cards-Phillies game at Philadelphia, attended by 60,561 fans, Pete Rose broke Stan Musials NL hit record when he singled for his 3,631st hit. It came o Mark Littell in the eighth inning. 2004 Barry Bonds became the rst play er in major league history to hit 30 home runs in 13 consecutive seasons, hitting a solo shot o John Grabow in the seventh inning of San Franciscos 8-7 loss to Pittsburgh. Bonds has hit 30 homers in 14 sea sons, one shy of Hank Aarons record. Penny pitches Marlins to winCINCINNATI Brad Penny rejoined the Marlins for the rst time in 10 years and pitched ve solid innings to get a notable win Saturday night, 4-3 over the slumping Cincinnati Reds. The 36-year-old helped the Marlins win the World Series in 2003 and played one more season in Miami before moving on. Called up earlier Saturday, Penny (1-0) put the Marlins in position for their second straight win over Cincinnati, which is 8-14 since the All-Star break. Penny gave up Jay Bruces solo homer and an unearned run in ve innings, fanning three while throwing 95 pitches. Steve Cishek pitched the ninth for his 29th save in 32 chances. Orioles 10, Cardinals 3: In Baltimore, Caleb Joseph homered in his fifth consecutive game, Nelson Cruz hit his 30th and Delmon Young also went deep as Batlimore beat John Lackey and St. Louis. All three home runs came with a man on against Lackey (1-1), making his second start since coming from Boston in a July 31 trade. The right-hander gave up nine runs and 13 hits in five-plus innings to fall to 14-8 lifetime against Baltimore. Indians 3, Yankees 0: In New York, Corey Kluber pitched four-hit ball for six innings and Jose Ramirez hit his first career homer as the Indians ended a four-game skid. Michael Brantley also homered and had three hits for Cleveland, which won at Yankee Stadium for the first time in eight games. Ramirez hit a two-run drive in the second inning and had three hits. Derek Jeter had an infield single in the sixth inning to pass Honus Wagner for sixth on the career list with No. 3,431. Blue Jays 3, Tigers 2, 10 innings: In Toronto, Nolan Reimold hit a game-winning double in the 10th inning and the Blue Jays rallied past the Tigers, spoiling Max Scherzers bid to become the first 14-game winner in the American League. Danny Valencia singled off Joba Chamberlain to begin the 10th and Reimold followed with a double to the wall in left-center as Valencia scored without a play. Astros 8, Rangers 3: In Houston, Jon Singleton went 2 for 3 with three RBIs and the Astros roughed up Yu Darvish for the second time in a month to make it seven consecutive wins over Texas. Matt Dominguez and Chris Carter each had two hits and an RBI and Robbie Grossman scored three runs as the Astros posted their fifth straight victory at home. Scott Feldman (6-8) won his second straight start, giving up three runs on eight hits over 6 innings. Royals 5, Giants 0: In Kansas City, Mo., James Shields threw a fourhitter and Alex Gordon homered as the Royals won their sixth straight. The Royals have won nine of 10 to move with 1 games of AL Central-leading Detroit. The Royals, who have not made the playoffs since beating St. Louis in the 1985 World Series, are in second place in the AL wild card standings. Brewers 4, Dodgers 1: In Milwaukee, Mike Fiers held the Los Angeles Dodgers to three hits in his first big league start in more than a year, and Khris Davis and Carlos Gomez homered to lift the Brewers. Fiers (1-1) struck out five in eight strong innings, filling in for injured veteran Matt Garza. The Dodgers mustered only a solo homer by Adrian Gonzalez into the second deck in right field. Padres 2, Pirates 1: In Pittsburgh, Eric Stults allowed one run in 6 innings to earn his first road win in 13 starts as visiting San Diego evened the series at one game apiece. Jedd Gyorko had an RBI single and Yasmani Grandal delivered a sacrifice fly as the Padres snapped Pittsburghs three-game winning streak. Stults (5-13) struck out six and scattered seven hits to improve to 1-9 away from home. MLB ROUNDUPFROM WIRE REPORTS

PITCHERS OF THE GAME Zach Cooper and Colton Reavis, Stone Crabs: Jupiter starter Jake Esch lost a no-hitter in the seventh inning and the Stone Crabs bullpen shut the door on the Hammerheads with three scoreless innings. KEY INNING Seventh: Four consecutive Stone Crabs singles erased Eschs no-hitter and the Hammerheads 3-0 lead. QUOTE OF THE DAY Manager Jared Sandberg: Now we can play a little more relaxed.

They hadnt recorded a hit in 1323 innings dating to the third inning of Fridays loss at Palm Beach, and Jupiter Hammerheads starter Jake Esch was no-hitting them through 623 innings at Charlotte Sports Park. The Stone Crabs trailed by three, and they were careening toward their third straight loss. That all changed in the time it took the next four players to walk to the plate. Four consecutive singles erased Eschs no-hitter, the Hammerheads lead and the Stone Crabs slump. Right elder Josh Sale completed the comeback in the bottom of the ninth inning, ripping an RBI double into the gap in left-center that gave Charlotte a walk-off 4-3 win over Jupiter. You could sense it, Sale said. As soon as we tied the game in the seventh, it was a ballgame from there. Starters out and they bring in a new guy. (Esch) pitched his (butt) off, but we got to him. And it felt good, for sure. There was a time when it looked as though the Stone Crabs had no shot. Esch mixed his mid-90s fastball and low-80s breaking ball with precision, allowing two basereunners on a elding error and a hit by pitch over the games rst 623 innings. But when designated hitter Maxx Tissenbaum blooped a single into right eld with two outs in the seventh, Esch lost that precision. Left elder Marty Gantt followed with another single, and catcher Jake DePew added another to put Charlotte on the scoreboard. Sale provided the biggest blow of the frame with a tworun single to center, tying the game at three. Esch exited after that inning, ultimately giving up three runs (two earned) on four hits over seven innings. He has a 4.54 ERA in 22 games this season. Its a letdown for the guy on the mound, who was pitching extremely well, Stone Crabs manager Jared Sandberg said. He hadnt really been pitching from the stretch, but all of a sudden that base hit comes and it can really change, because now hes pitching from the stretch. He loses that tempo, that rhythm. Jupiter reliever Brad Mincey took the loss in the ninth, walking DePew with two outs before giving up the game-winning hit to Sale. Once they brought in the other guy, he was trying to pump fastballs past me, Sale said. I was just trying to get good pitches to hit, and I put a good swing on it tonight. Stone Crabs starter Austin Pruitt fell short in his bid to win a seventh straight start, giving up three runs on nine hits while striking out seven over six innings. The right-handers no decision extends a streak of nine straight starts without a loss. I felt good. But its been a while, Pruitt said. Its been eight days since my last start. So I felt a little different. Got out of my rhythm a little bit. But overall everything felt ne. Sometimes when youre facing a guy like (Esch), youre like, All right, I got to make my pitches a little more ne. But if you keep on throwing your game, things will work out.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or jvitale@sun-herald.com.By JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITER HAMMERHEADS AT CRABSWHO: Jupiter (16-31) at Charlotte (23-23) WHEN: Today, 5 p.m. WHERE: Charlotte Sports Park PROBABLE PITCHERS: Matt Milroy (1-6, 8.02) vs. Blake Snell (4-5, 4.14) RADIO: 91.7 FM or www. stonecrabsbaseball.com PROMOTIONS: Family Fun Sunday: Fans will be able to receive autographs from Stone Crabs players upon entrance, play catch on the field and kids can run the bases postgame. Cant find it anywhere?Dont give up check the Classifieds! CHICAGO Jake Odorizzi spoke calmly and condently on Friday about how he put his rough last start behind him. Then Saturday he went out and showed it, in dazzling form, leading the Tampa Bay Rays to a 4-0 win over the Cubs. Odorizzi allowed only three hits over six sterling innings, striking out nine, as the Rays won their third straight and moved back within two games of .500 at 57-59. The Rays got him two runs in the fourth and two more in the sixth, with Yunel Escobar and Evan Longoria doing most of the work. Kirby Yates delivered two impressive innings in relief of Odorizzi. Jake McGee allowed two twoout singles in the ninth before striking out Luis Valbuena to nish it. The Rays broke through against former teammate Edwin Jackson in the fourth. Ben Zobrist laced a ball that landed in the ivy in the righteld corner and was limited to a ground-rule double, though manager Joe Maddon argued for more. It looked as if it could be a big play when a James Loney yout moved him to third, but Longoria made it moot by drilling a double into the lefteld corner. Escobar followed with a two-out single to score Longoria. The Rays loaded the bases in the sixth on two walks, a elders choice grounder and an error, and Escobar delivered again with a two-out single. Odorizzi lasted only three innings last Sunday against the Angels, needing 46 pitches to get through a ve-run rst. Saturday he sizzled from the start, needing only 15 pitches to get through a 1-2-3 rst and striking out ve in a row at one point. The Rays remained 10 games behind Baltimore in the American League East race. They started the day 512 behind the Kansas City Royals for the second AL wild card. The Rays and Cubs nish their series Sunday, then the Rays move on to Texas for a four-game series that starts Monday.RAYS 4, CUBS 0Tampa Bay AB R H BI BB SO Avg.

Page 8 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 the media spotlight has receded, and that locker at Tropicana Field is occupied by someone else. But Sales career is still very much alive. Hes an everyday outelder for the Charlotte Stone Crabs, and hes rounding himself back into the player the Rays drafted No. 17 overall in 2012. For that, he gives a lot of the credit to missing a year of baseball. Without baseball, Im kind of lost, Sale said. Having the thing you love the most be taken away from you is never fun. It was denitely a reality check. It was one Sale needed, Rays director of minor league operations Mitch Lukevics said. The journey a young player takes to the major leagues can be a bumpy ride, and doing it as a rst-round draft pick adds more pressure. When mistakes are made off the eld, sometimes taking the game away from them is the only way to make sure the bell goes off and the light switch goes on in a players head. So the player Lukevics spoke to in January wasnt the same player the Rays suspended indenitely in May 2013 after he had posted on Facebook that he had been kicked out of a strip club for throwing 50 cents at a stripper, or the same player suspended 50 games in August 2012 for testing positive for perfor mance-enhancing drugs. And Sale has changed even more during his ve months back in Port Charlotte. The change in maturation is signicant. And I think that maturation is the signicant change thats enabling him to be on the eld every day, Lukevics said in June. Thats good for him in life, its good for him on the baseball eld. If we dont have life, we dont have baseball, and thats what we try to impress upon all our young players. Life is bigger than baseball. You have to have life under control, and its not as easy as one might think. Lukevics estimates that he has watched Sale play in person around eight to 10 times this season, but he reads extensive reports on the outelder and the rest of the Rays minor-leaguers daily. Lukevics said its clear that Sale has a lot of catching up to do after missing hundreds of at-bats at the plate and more than 100 games in the eld. But hes doing everything the Rays have asked. Its been a hard road, though. Sale said he was in good shape when he reported to spring training in March, but he was far from being in baseball shape. It had been more than a year since the last time he had played competitively, so his fundamentals were not where he wanted. Expectations were low coming into the season, for me, just because I didnt know what we were going to get, Stone Crabs manager Jared Sandberg said. Whenever you miss a signicant amount of time, its going to be hard to come back. So you just have to be patient with that process and maybe lower your expectations a little bit. Ive told him plenty of times: This season is not the season to get frustrated, because you have been out so long. So just go play, be relaxed and whatever happens, happens. Sale has done his best to stick to that mantra. The numbers likely arent quite where he wants them to be hes batting .234 with four home runs and 45 RBIs through 87 games this season but he understands that a return from a year-long layoff is a process. He and his manager have seen plenty of progression, too. Sale said daily repetitions have helped him get more comfortable playing both outeld corners, and Sandberg said Sales swing has become more free-owing and natural rather than robotic and rehearsed. The numbers prove it; over his last 13 games, Sale is batting .361 with 12 RBIs. Its coming around, Sale said. Right now, theres still a lot to work on. Im working at it every day. Im getting a little more comfortable, seeing the ball better at the plate. Im more comfortable out in the eld. I think its just, mentally, I got to be sharper. His most important developments have come off the eld, though. He was immature two years ago, Sandberg said, but hes been humbled by his actions. When you talk to him, he has a clear mind, Sandberg said. Hes been very professional on and off the eld, great teammate in the clubhouse. Hes a different Josh Sale than I remember from a year and a half, two years ago. Hes really matured a lot. Spending a year away from baseball was probably the toughest thing Ive had to do in my life thus far, Sale said. And now that hes back playing the game he loves, he doesnt want to waste the chance. Everybody knew the situation, everybody knew what had happened. It wasnt a secret, Sale said. But (my teammates) welcomed me back with open arms. Its a different group of guys, just like it is every year, but its the same group of guys because were all family still. They havent put me in any situations or disrespected me at all this year, so Im glad and thankful for the group of guys that Im with. One reporter stood in front of Josh Sale in the hallway outside the home clubhouse at Charlotte Sports Park two weeks ago. He wanted to know how much the outelder thought he had matured in his year away from baseball. Sale again answered the question openly. If Mitch says he sees a change and others do as well, then Im doing something right, he said. Ive just got to continue doing that, keep my nose clean and stay out of harms way.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or jvitale@sun-herald.com.SALEFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY JENNIFER BRUNOCharlottes Josh Sale has been on a tear the past 12 games, batting .454 with nine RBIs. S C EThe newest Biscuit has stayed hot since being promoted to Double-A, going 4 for 12 with a solo home run in his first three games at the next level.J OCPROSPECT WATCH ALUMNI OF THE WEEKC, Double-A MontgomeryThe outfielder has recorded a hit in every August game hes played in, going 6 for 14 with two doubles and five RBIs over that stretch. Hes batting .371 over his last 10 games, increasing his season batting average to .231. B SPITCHER OF THE WEEKThe left-hander threw the first no-hitter in Stone Crabs history last week albeit a rain-shortened one walking three batters while striking out nine over 5 innings. Hell try to build on that effort tonight against Jupiter. Gillaspie has shown why the Rays took him with their top pick in the 2014 draft, hitting .269 with six home runs and 33 RBIs in his first 50 games for the Renegades.J SHITTER OF THE WEEK QUOTE OF THE WEEKHim and I, we were the last people off the field. So we were walking off the field, and over the PA they said the game was cancelled or called due to the rain or weather, and that was the first no-hitter in Stone Crabs history. So I shook Blakes hand as we were walking off the field, then they made the announcement and I slapped him across the chest to kind of wake him up a little bit and make sure he knew what he had done. It was really cool to be a part of history.

Starter Blake Snell (@ snellzilla11)BEST OF THE BLOGThe Charlotte Stone Crabs made a flurry of roster moves to start their three-game road trip to Palm Beach on Wednesday, the most notable of them involving Justin OConner. The Tampa Bay Rays promoted the top catching prospect to Double-A Montgomery for the first time in his career on Wednesday. OConner is hitting a career-high .282 with 10 home runs and 44 RBIs this season, and he played in both the Florida State League All-Star Game and MLB Futures Game. He has also excelled behind the plate, throwing out 50 percent of would-be base-stealers and picking off 14 runners. Catcher Jake DePew has been sent back to Charlotte from Montgomery after hitting .179 in 17 games with the Biscuits. DePew will likely split time with Maxx Tissenbaum behind the plate. 50469124 GAME TODAYSUNDAY.

When given a choice between poultry, fish or beef, I always choose beef. My eating habits earned me a heart attack and three stents back in 2001. I had three blocked arteries. The stents have done their job, and diet and medication have done the rest. I am able to remain active, play golf and travel. At first we adhered to a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet. Over time we have learned to mod ify it by eating moderately mixing in meat other than beef and having fish. Now I am discovering an alter native to beef. I was recently given a tour of the Three Suns Ranch. It is located on State Road 31 about two miles north of Bermont Road in Charlotte County. This ranch is 5,700 acres and currently is being developed as a buffalo ranch. There are currently more than 2,000 bison on the property. Plans are to grow the herd to about 7,000 head. This will provide a local source for a meat that tastes like beef and is infinitely better for you. Buffalo ranching is a different skill than cattle ranching. For one, bison are delicate animals that can be easily excited. They are not domesticated; they are wild animals that have to be given special treatment. Our guide at the ranch told us that most bison injuries occur from other bison. When they get excited, they react without regard to others in the herd. They will even trample their own young. Obviously humans do not want to get in their way, either. Butchering and the preparation of the meat for market is also a different skill set than with cattle. Unfortunately, buffalo meat is ruined if the animal is subjected to too much stress. Three Suns has developed a way to avoid the stress of a round-up and shipment to a slaughterhouse. They have brought the slaughterhouse to the ranch. The animals are led in one end and come out as packages at the other end. All bison are grass-fed without the addition of treated corn feed. So I guess that makes it organic for those keeping track. They are more expensive to raise and process and that makes the meat more expen sive. Three Suns currently sells bison meat their store on the ranch for $9.99 per pound. It is the nutritional value that is so striking. There is a chart available at www.bisoncentral.com. Research by Dr. M. Marchello at North Dakota State University has shown that the meat from bison is a highly nutrient dense food because of the propor tion of protein, fat, minerals, and fatty acids to its caloric value. Comparisons to other meat sources have also shown that bison has a greater concentration of iron as well as some of the essential fatty acids necessary for human well-being. Readers Digest magazine has even listed bison as one of the five foods women should eat because of the high iron content. As you can see, it looks like a great addition to your diet. There are some fresh markets that sell buffalo meat, but you can also buy it at the Three Suns Ranch. You should call before you go because they are not always open. For more information, call 941639-7070. Three Suns Ranch is located at 2351 State Road 31, Punta Gorda.Finding healthy alternatives to beef FROM THE PUBLISHER Dave Powell ReadNewArticlesDailySP32178 www. .com 50475124 We have your convenience in mind with 12 locations to better serve you. 18308 Murdock Circle Unit 102 Port Charlotte 9 4 1 6 2 4 2 1 4 1 941-624-2141 www.anklefootfl.comO f f e r i n g .

Page 4 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 feelingfit.com feelingfit.com I love my doctor. Shes the rst healthcare practitioner who has actually told me to lose weight. Others have danced around my diet or family risk, but my osteopath said it plainly, Lose 10 percent of your bodyweight. Her solution was pretty simple: Ditch the sugar and processed foods. Bump up the veggies, fruit and whole grains. Nuts and legumes are good for you. Start walking at least ve times a week. Easier said than done. Its three months later, and maybe Ive lost 5 pounds. Walking didnt last for very long I hate the summer heat. And, yes, sugar is addictive. On my third attempt to quit, I can feel the withdrawal symptoms and cravings already. Its only been a couple of days. I can look at my family history, and I can talk about my risk of high blood pressure and borderline high cholesterol. Ive been at risk for high blood pressure my whole life and various times in my late 30s and early 40s Ive been prehypertensive, depending on my weight. So far, Ive been able to outrun hypertension, but Im afraid thats changing. The last two blood pressure readings have been 140-plus/100plus what the National Institutes of Health denes as stage 1 high blood pressure. Just a few more numbers, and Id climb into stage 2. That scares the living daylights out of me. Strokes do not run in my family, but heart disease and early heart attacks do. And we all know that high blood pressure bumps up the risk of coronary artery disease and heart failure. Genetics are not in my favor. My apple body shape carrying the most weight around my gut and midsection means that I am more likely to develop heart disease. If I go by the results of a study at Brigham and Womens Hospital, my wider waistline (more than 38 inches) and maybe my age means Im three times more likely to develop heart disease than women who have 28-inch or smaller waists. If I go by family history, my risk of developing heart disease is probably even higher. My father had a massive heart attack at 63, and his father died of congestive heart failure around the same age. On my moms side, those risks are also there, although heart disease develops later in life on that side of the family, and those relatives tend to live longer. And I havent even factored in my grandpas Type 2 diabetes. I can keep talking about my struggle to lose weight, and I can keep writing about it and I havent gotten in gear. But thats about to change. I was talking with some folks at the local YMCA who are interested in contributing a wellness column from their personal trainers. Great idea, I said. Let me run something else by you, the marketing director said. Her idea? Someone should partner with the YMCA and chronicle his or her weight loss in Feeling Fit. Thats going to mean regular and probably intense sessions with a regular trainer provided by the Y, and access to the workout facilities and tness classes. And a personalized tness routine and input on eating right. It didnt take long for me to volunteer. I meet with a trainer on Monday to begin the journey, which I will be writing about regularly in my column. Id like to go beyond the doctors recommended 10 percent (thats only 20 pounds). I dont expect a miracle, but Im hoping this all leads to a healthier and lighter me. I gure its time for me to ditch all the talk and whining and start taking action.Time to step upBy KARIN LILLISFEELING FIT EDITOR EDITORS NOTE FILE PHOTO Patients diagnosed with bromyalgia complain of chronic pain throughout their bodies, but often doctors have difculty detecting what causes the pain, and therefore, how to treat it. These patients also complain of hyperalgesia, or increased sensitivity to pain. A University of Florida (UF) study published in the July issue of the European Journal of Pain has found that injections of the painkiller lidocaine in peripheral tissues such as muscles in the shoulders or buttocks reduced hyperalgesia, bringing researchers one step closer to understanding how chronic pain works within these patients. We hypothesized that if pain comes from the peripheral tissues, and we can take this pain away by injecting local anesthetics, then this would be indirect proof of the importance of peripheral tissues for the clinical pain of these individuals, said Dr. Roland Staud, a professor of medicine within the UF College of Medicines department of medicine. Sixty-two women diagnosed with bromyalgia were involved in the study. Each woman received two injections in the trapezius muscles of the shoulders and the gluteal muscles of the buttocks, for a total of four injections per patient. The women were divided into several groups and given mechanical and heat pain stimuli immediately before and then 30 minutes after the injections. One group received four saline injections. The second group received four lidocaine injections. Although the lidocaine injections signicantly reduced hyperalgesia, the placebo injections did not. The study also found that the lidocaine and saline placebo injections both resulted in a 38 percent reduction in patients clinical pain, or the pain a person feels at the point of injury as well as pain radiating throughout the area near the injury. There was no statistical difference between the painkiller and the saline placebo. Treatment of chronic pain is difcult because doctors often cant detect evidence of injury at the site where patients experience pain, Staud said. But chronic pain affects the body differently than, for example, a single incident such as a leg break. It actually changes nerve function along patients spinal cords, said Dr. Michael Robinson, director of the UF Center for Pain Research and Behavioral Health. He said hyperalgesia is a phenomenon in which the nervous system becomes sensitized to stimulation, amplifying the intensity perceived by the patient. Knowing what kind of treatment is successful in treating this sensitivity could bring researchers closer to providing relief to patients combating their hyperalgesia and curbing chronic pain. The best way to treat chronic pain conditions is multidisciplinary and multimodal, looking at emotional, sensory and tissue damage. We know there are central and peripheral and social and behavioral components to someone saying, Ow, it hurts, said Robinson, also a professor in the department of clinical and health psychology in the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions. For example, in a person with a history of cancer pain, even if the cancer has been treated and is in remission, experiencing new pain in the aficted area can trigger associations with the pain surrounding the patients cancer, including fears about the patients prognosis and anxiety about treatment. That sensation may well feel more painful than if they just thought it was a tweaked a muscle, Robinson said. Staud said the study can help them develop better ways of managing chronic pain. Over-the-counter medications and prescriptions such as opiates arent really effective for controlling chronic pain conditions, Staud said. We are able to explain the pain of chronic patients better and manage it better. We are making progress but it will take time.Drug reduces hypersensitivity to pain in patients with fibromyalgiaBy MORGAN SHERBURNUNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA FILE PHOTO 50468044 C HRISTOPHER G.

The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net Page 5 feelingfit.com feelingfit.com The Englewood Community Care Clinic is aptly named because if theres one element responsible for its success, its community. The clinic located at 6868 San Casa Drive, Englewood is a nonprot medical clinic providing no-cost medical services to the under-served residents of Englewood and surrounding communities. Since its ofcial opening on Jan. 17, 2011, it has served about 1,500 patients in nearly 3,000 patient visits. The seed for the clinic began to germinate in May 2009 when Dr. Raymond James, an emergency room physician with Gulf Coast Emergency Physicians, joined with a few other physicians who had been providing small clinics in the area. What they wanted was something bigger and more structured similar to the Virginia B. Andes Volunteer Community Clinic in Port Charlotte, but on a smaller scale. Port Charlotte physicians Dr. David Klein, an ophthalmologist, and infectious disease specialist Dr. Mark Asperilla who both founded the Andes Clinic agreed to sit down with James. One night we had this very long meeting at the hospital in Englewood, Klein said, and spoke for hours about what it would take and what kind of commitment it would need. And they did it. He added that he believed the clinic would be a success from the beginning, based on the way the community supported Lemon Bay High School, where his children attended. I thought if they did that for the high school, theyll do it for the clinic, Klein said. What I really like about the clinic is that theres such a base of community support. You have board members there who are pretty prominent, socially speaking, but they dont see it that way. They come in there, they get their hands dirty. Each board member has to work in the clinic one night a month. You have some of the wealthiest people around and some of the poorest people around getting together to make the clinic go. The clinic serves to close the gap between those who have access to quality medical care and those who do not. Its mission is to provide no-cost episodic (nonemergency) medical services to the uninsured and working poor in the Englewood area, and its vision is to improve the quality of life for low-income residents in the Englewood area by providing access to quality health care. Its patients are the underserved residents of Charlotte and Sarasota counties who are 18 to 64 years old, who lack health insurance or Medicaid, and whose income falls at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level. In the greater Englewood area, thats about one in every four people. Through a fortunate partnership with Charlotte County government, the clinic is able to lease its premises for $1 per year. So far, more than 15 physicians and more than two dozen nurses have been recruited not to mention the numerous volunteers who serve as administrative support staff, front ofce assistants, inter preters and many other functions. The clinic is open two nights a week, and each time we see between 15 and 25 patients, Klein said. Sometimes those are repeat customers, but there are a lot of new people, too. The care is more episodic there, not so much chronic management although thats part of it. Its for people who are not sick enough to go to the ER, but thats where they would go if it werent for the clinic. The Englewood Clinics organizers used the Andes Clinic as a model. They didnt overextend themselves trying to do too much, Klein added. They generated the appropriate amount of support from local doctors, nurses, medical personnel and non-medical personnel alike. They got backing from Englewood Community Hospital, and secured the services of imaging and laboratory facilities. They were able to use Andes to avoid some of the pitfalls which is not always easy, Klein said. The Andes Clinic also comes in handy sometimes for the Englewood patients if someone needs really complicated care or if they need medicines, because we have the pharmacy at Andes. Andes is a little bigger and has been around longer. The Andes Clinic works together to assist the Englewood Clinic if the latter has patients they are not equipped to handle. The Englewood Clinic opens its doors to other medical needs in the community, such as being a venue for school and sports physicals. The clinic is open from 5 to 8 p.m. on Mondays and Thursday. Patients are seen on a walk-in basis, so appointments are not necessary. Half of Englewoods in Charlotte County and the other half is in Sarasota County, but that doesnt really matter, Klein said. We see patients on both sides of the border. We cant do everything there, but we can do a lot. Were there to help, so we try to do whatever we can for somebody with a medical need. The Englewood Community Care Clinic is located at 6868 San Casa Drive, Englewood (across from Suncoast Humane Society).

Page 6 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 feelingfit.com feelingfit.com Darrel Buddy Johnson said that many patients with HIV lead a double life, a secret life. He knows because he has been a longtime facilitator of HIV sup port groups, most recently The Exchange, which meets 6 p.m. the second Tuesday of every month at Comprehensive Care Center (CCC), 14243 Tamiami Trail, North Port. The group, which has been meeting for about a year and a half, is open to those who are HIV-positive and their caregivers. As with the CCC itself, it provides a necessary service geographically. The big thing about opening the Comprehensive Care Center here is that it lls a need in our area, Johnson said. There was a vacuum of services here in the Port CharlotteNorth Port area. Most people had to go to Sarasota or Fort Myers for HIV care. A volunteer at CCC, Johnson said The Exchange started through the combined efforts of staff members (including himself) who wanted to create a safe haven for patients with HIV to receive support. His previous experience as a facilitator made him the natural choice to helm the edgling group. Attendance varies, and can go as high as a dozen people and Johnson is always on the lookout for more. Using a round-robin format, attendees are encouraged to take turns speaking. For those who dont know what to say, Johnson provides a few icebreaker questions. He lists four specic areas by which The Exchange can help HIV patients and their caregivers: Lifting the burden. Most people keep their HIV infection a secret, Johnson said. Theyre afraid to tell others of their status because of the stigma still involved with the disease and that really hasnt changed, he explained. Many people fear losing their jobs if their status is revealed. Florida is a right-to-work state and they can get red for any reason. Also, HIV patients may face the loss of partners, friends, loved ones. This is a place to let the secrets out, Johnson said. This is a safe place to divulge the secret of living with HIV, saying it out loud and in the open because oftentimes theres no other place they can talk about it. Alleviating fear. People living with HIV tend to have a lot of fears espe cially when theyre newly diagnosed. They dont know whats going to happen to them, if theyre going to die soon, Johnson said. Some are new to the area and dont know where to turn for help. Johnsons goal is to lower the level of fear the attendees feel. One way this is accomplished is by introducing longterm HIV patients to the group. Some of them have had HIV as long as 30 years, yet they appear healthy and are living a normal life, he said. They demonstrate to the group members that they dont have to be so fearful. Exchange of information. Johnson considers this the most important aspect of the group. Long-term HIV survivors are able to pass on information to newly infected patients who usually have a lot of questions about HIV. They can nd out about local programs, doctors, local programs, and medications and their side effects. I have a case manager I can refer them to, Johnson said. I have a list of resources. Most with HIV require case management in order to access programs such as the Ryan White Program, which works with cities, states, and local community-based organization to provide HIV-related services to more than half a million people each year. The program is for those who do not have sufcient health care cover age or nancial resources for coping with HIV disease. Gaining a support network. Keeping HIV infection a secret makes it difcult for patients to nd any kind of support network. They cant tell friends or family or people they would normally rely on for support, Johnson said. But they make new friends in the support group. It becomes their HIV family, their secret family. They lead a double life. Many people do. They have their normal family and friends, and then they have their HIV positive friends and family. Johnson said he is grateful for the CCCs services to the area. The home ofce is in Sarasota, he said. The North Port ofce opened almost two years ago. It provides case management and health care locally. The Sarasota location also provides mental health counseling, dental clinic, and a peer navigator matching a patient with an older person with HIV to help walk them through the steps. The Comprehensive Care Centers North Port Clinic is located at 14243 Tamiami Trail, North Port. For more information about The Exchange, call 941-888-2144. For information about the center, visit www.cccsrq.org.Area group provides support for HIV patients, caregiversBy BOB MASSEYFEELING FIT CORRESPONDENT COMMUNITY HEALTH There are approximately 10,000 children from low-income families in the north Sarasota area. When they need health care, its much more affordable if they can receive treatment at a medical center rather than a hospital emergency room. Space has been limited, however, so families with children have had long wait times for appointments at the Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County locations, which have treated about half of the children in need. The new Sally and Sam Shapiro Babies and Childrens Medical Center replaces the smaller Childrens Health Center on 17th street in Sarasota. The much larger center has more exam rooms, a room for mothers who are breastfeeding their infants, and a pharmacy that will open in the fall. In addition to being able to treat 3,000 to 4,000 more children, the new medical center will have room to provide more early childhood developmental screenings so that problems can be found early and addressed before children start school. The new center will provide a much wider array of services including: Preventive medical care like well-baby check-ups and immunizations. School physicals. Treatment for illnesses and minor injuries. Primary care services for parents and family members who qualify. Dental services and referrals for other specialty services. Developmental screenings. Healthy Start screening for newborns and pregnant women. Women, Infants and Children federal program (on Fridays). Nutrition services. Support for mothers who are breastfeeding their infants. Pharmacy. Family-focused healthy lifestyle classes. Raising the funds for the new center was really a grassroots effort, said Diane Shipley, health educator and media liaison for the center. Phil King, the former executive director of the Glasser-Schoenbaum Human Services Center, which housed the childrens health center, noticed how small and crowded it was and brought the issue before the board of directors, Shipley said. The board started a fundraising campaign, and generous contributions from the community followed, including a large donation from Sam and Sally Shapiro. The federal Health Resources and Services Administration which helps expand health services in communities with high need provided $500,000. Primary care services are provided by Community Health Center of North Port, Inc. through a private/ public partnership. Three pediatricians will staff the new facility, as they did at the previous center. But with the new, 12,000-square foot space, they will have more room to see more patients and provide the additional services.

The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net Page 7 feelingfit.com feelingfit.com Psychotherapist Chantelle Grant has found a secret to helping her patients achieve their goals more quickly and enjoyably add a horse to the mix. Yes, thats right. A horse. I think that incorporating the horse into the treatment changes the whole dynamic, said Grant, a licensed clinical social worker with the Beacon Clinic in Port Charlotte. It makes it a lot more fun, a lot more experiential, and theyre able to personalize it. There are a few different types of what is broadly known as equine therapy. While horses can be used in general teaching, or in physical therapy, Grants specialty is equinefacilitated psychotherapy, which requires mental health certication. The horse is a really good indicator of letting you know your communication styles and helping to provide opportunities to try new behavioral experiences with horse in a safe, controlled environment, she said. If youre passive, the horse isnt going to listen to you. If youre aggressive, youre going to lose control of that horse because youre going to frighten them or youre going to run them off. But if you can be assertive which means youre being clear in your communication then you tend to get a good thing going. Grant tailors the therapy to each specic patients needs. And that includes pairing the patient with a horse for particular reasons. For example, a patient suffering with anxiety might be paired with a nervous horse. As the patient learns to help the horse overcome its anxiety, he or she is able to translate into dealing with their own. From the mental health perspective, it gives patients opportunities to try out new experiences and learn new things about themselves and about the way theyre behaving, she said. A horse gives immediate feedback. The horse doesnt necessarily listen to the words youre saying, theyre looking at what youre doing and what youre communicating and how youre communicating, how youre behaving. You cant lie to a horse. She notes that research and studies have shown that incorporating animals into therapy is just as effective if not more effective as medications. And she has had her own success stories. When she treats families with parents and children in conict, she usually works with the parents rst. They learn how to work and communicate with a horse, to pay attention to its reactions, to be patient. Once theyve mastered those skills, they can then teach it to their children. One patient was a teenage girl who had been molested, Grant said. She was really having difculties with keeping herself safe; she was putting herself in unsafe situations. I paired her with a horse that was a little pushy. She had to learn how to communicate to that horse that you cant do this with me, Grant said. Obviously I didnt put a dangerous horse in there with her, but I put one that would come over and push in on her. The exercise I gave her was to get this horse to stay outside of the arena that youre in instead of coming up and walking in on top of you. She would have to learn how to quickly, clearly and rmly tell that horse that it had to stay out there, and learn how to set her boundaries. From that, she was able to go home and be able to keep herself in safe situations. She translated it from her safe experience with the horse that she could communicate with other people that, No, Im not OK with this. Of course, not all patients are candidates for equine therapy. Those with a history of being aggressive with animals, or who are violent may not be the best t. Patients also need to be physically healthy enough to work with the horse. The biggest question is if the clinician is able to meet their needs while incorporating the horse, Grant said. Somebody that has a signicant mental health need may require a little bit more explanation and learning to heal from what theyre dealing with, Id want to look for an equine-facilitated psychotherapist instead of an equine experiential learner. Another benet of equine therapy is that it causes biological changes within the persons body, she added. It automatically starts the body producing oxytocin also known as the love hormone which is a feel-good hormone that often reduces stress. Endorphins are also produced, which help to combat negative emotions and thought patterns. It biologically puts you in a better place, Grant said, and thats before youve even starting anything. Thats just from being in the presence of an animal. They have studies that it lowers stress levels, blood pressure levels. So on top of all the emotional learning, there are physical changes going on in the body. Grant has found that patients who receive equine therapy are more engaged in their treatment. When they see the clinician caring for a horse and interacting with a horse, it already shows them that this is a different dynamic, she said. They know you can care for somebody.

Page 8 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 feelingfit.com feelingfit.com Why steam vegetables? When vegetables are cooked immersed in water, a considerable amount of their nutrients leaches into the water and is lost when drained after cooking. Soups and stews are the exception, since the liquid is consumed as well. Steaming vegetables is one of the best and fastest cooking methods preserving their nutrients, taste, color, and texture. It is also a much healthier alternative to fried, canned, or commercially precooked ones. Can I steam more than one vegetable at a time? Absolutely, but, choose ones which require approximately the same cooking time. What type of steamer should I use? Two stove-top steamers are the most economical and easiest to use: The collapsible, stainless steel basket steamer which resembles a ower. Its petals are dotted with holes to allow the steam in the bottom pot to cook the veggies in the top. The petals fold in and out to t (legs down) inside almost any size pot, as long as they dont stand out above the pot edge and interfere with lid closure. An often larger type of stainless steel double-decker steamer comes in three parts: a base pot, a perforated pan, and a lid. Where can steamers be purchased? Most department stores, kitchen stores, and discount stores carry them. The collapsible steamer basket can also be found in the gadget aisle of many supermarkets. How is vegetable steaming done? After washing and (in some cases) peeling the veggies, it is necessary to cut them into approximately the same size pieces; doing otherwise results in some cooked pieces while larger ones are still undercooked. If a collapsible steamer is used, pour 1/2-inch deep water into the bottom pan. (The water should not come in contact with the produce during the cooking process.) Place 1-inch deep water into the bottom pot of the larger, double-decker steamer. Return the steamer pan/ basket to its original position. Place the prepared vegetables in the top receptacle, spreading them evenly. Cover, and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Reduce the heat, making sure that the water is still boiling quite vigorously. Timing begins now. How long should veggies be steamed? Steaming time depends not only on the kind of vegetable being used but also on the size of the pieces. Just before cooking is nished, forktest them; they should be crisp-tender, meaning that an inserted fork pierces them fairly easily but some resistance still remains. Full steam ahead; try these easy recipes enjoy! QUICK-FIX ZUCCHINI WITH BASIL AND FETA Per serving 1 yellow zucchini Dried basil Crumbled feta cheese Black pepper to taste Scrub clean, trim stem-end and cut zucchini in half lengthwise and then cut each half in two crosswise. Sprinkle pepper on the at side of zucchini quarters. Sprinkle basil liberally over pepper. Top with a small mound of feta. Place water in the steamer bottom pot. Transfer prepared zucchini quar ters into steamer basket. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and steam zucchini 10 minutes, or until crisp-tender. Remove steamer from stove. Carefully transfer zucchini to a serving plate. GREEN BEAN SALAD IN LEMON DRESSING 4 servings 1 pound green beans, stem-ends trimmed DRESSING: 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon nely grated lemon zest 3 tablespoons lemon juice 1 large clove garlic, nely grated 1-1/2 tablespoons dried dill weed Salt and pepper to taste Cut green beans into 1-inch segments and steam 10 minutes, or until crisp-tender. When the beans are done, gently rinse them under cold water for a few seconds. Drain. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, make dressing. Toss the green beans with dressing, and refrigerate in an airtight container for 1 hour. GREENS WITH ONION AND CUMIN 4 servings 8 cups rinsed, shredded greens (kale, mustard greens etc.) 3 tablespoons olive oil 1 large yellow onion, chopped 4 cloves garlic, nely chopped 1-1/2 tablespoons ground cumin Salt and pepper to taste 3 tablespoons sesame seeds In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Mix in onion and garlic, cover, reduce heat and cook slowly 12 minutes, or until onion is translucent, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, steam greens 10 minutes, or until wilted. Drain. To the skillet, add salt, pepper, and cumin. When greens are done, drain, and stir them into onion mixture. Sprinkle with sesame and serve. Judy E. Buss is a nutritional cooking instructor.

BUSSFEELING FIT CORRESPONDENT MISSION NUTRITION Judy E. Buss Theres a saying going around that sitting is the new smoking. Its a bit snarky and perhaps a none-too-subtle dig at those of us who spend a lot of time on our rear ends for work and pleasure. But Dr. James Levine, who is credited with it, is dead serious. In fact, he said, sitting could be worse than smoking. What to do about it? Get Up! is the title of Levines new book, a jovial tale of how he came to the scientic conclusion that our chairs are killing us and what can be done to stop the threat. We lose two hours of life for every hour we sit, writes Levine, director of the Mayo Clinic-Arizona State University Obesity Solutions Initiative and inventor of the treadmill desk. Sitting all day is not natural and to blame for all kinds of ailments, including obesity, he said. We have created for ourselves a modern way of living that clashes with the way were meant to be, he writes. So the obvious answer is to move more, by, for example, taking walks after meals, something Levine writes that he does after every meal. On one hand, the good news is that this is incredibly easy. The bad news is this is incredibly difcult, especially for a computer-centric workforce, Levine said in a telephone interview. Yet Levine is optimistic that the revolution to overthrow sitting is at hand. He sees the arrival of dynamic ofces, with walking paths from department to department, active senior centers and classrooms. And those will lead to healthier and happier people, he said. I think the revolution is coming. Its going to happen. The cool companies, cool executives are not driving BMWs, theyre on treadmills. My kids wont be working the way my colleagues and myself have, he said. This is about hard-core productivity. You will make money if your workforce gets up and gets moving. Your kids will get better grades if they get up and get moving, he said. The science is not refuted. That was not always the case. As he tells it in the book, he was ridiculed by a number of colleagues when he rst began talking about the dangers of sitting. The science turns on the study of NEAT, or nonexercise activity ther mogenesis, the energy expenditure of activity other than sports. It includes dancing, going to work, shoveling snow and taking a walk, Levine writes. So you can imagine a construction worker uses a lot more NEAT calories than a computer programmer in the course of a workday. Low NEAT is linked to weight gain, diabetes, heart attacks and cancer, Levine writes. In an experiment in which people were overfed by the same amount 1,000 calories a day Levine and his colleagues found that some people had a powerful NEAT switch that gets them moving to use excess energy. Those people who do not have a NEAT switch remain sitting in response to overfeeding and are predisposed to obesity, he writes. The difference was two hours and 15 minutes a day of movement versus sitting. Levine and his colleagues did other studies over several years to look at how the brain controls movement or lack of movement. Levine puts the dangers simply: Sitting is more dangerous than smoking, kills more people than HIV and is more treacherous than parachuting. We are sitting ourselves to death.Are our chairs killing us?

The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net Page 9 feelingfit.com feelingfit.com A sedentary lifestyle is one of the top risk factors relating to heart disease. This can be remedied by beginning an exercise program aimed at cardiovascular exercise. Regular exercise has many benets for the heart, cardiovascular system and much more. Benets include: Strengthening the heart and cardiovascular system. Improving circulation and using oxygen more prociently. Elevating energy, thus allowing increase activities with out becoming tired or short of breath. Reducing the risk of high blood pressure. Helping reduce blood pressure in people who already have high blood pressure. Reducing the risk of colon cancer. Enhancing muscle tone and strength. Helping balance and joint exibility. Reducing body fat (helps control weight). Promoting psychological well-being by reducing stress, tension, anxiety, and depression. Promoting self-image and self-esteem. Improving sleep. Maintaining healthy bones, muscles and joints. Helping older adults become stronger and better able to move about without falling. As always, check with your doctor before beginning an exercise program. Not participating in physical activity is risky business. All the advantages gained by exercise will be lost on the benets listed above. We only have one life, so make the best of it. Stay healthy and active and independent as long as possible so you may enjoy life to the fullest, even as you age. We have had recently two new members ages 91 and 95 join the Fitness Salon at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County. This is the rst time they have engaged in regular exercise. Although they have stayed active, they were losing muscle strength, range of motion and balance. Since they have begun an exercise routine, they have both said that they feel stronger, and everyday activities are not so strenuous. Warming up before beginning an exercise session is extremely important. By warming up your blood ow, oxygen and energy substrates to the working muscles and increases core temperature. Warming up also will gradually increase heart rate, metabolic rate from resting to exercising levels. Generally 5-10 minutes of moderate walking or cycling will do the trick. Now that your muscles are warm, institute a basic stretching program. This helps in avoiding injury while preparing the muscles for activity. Stretching also enhances exibility. After stretching, begin aerobic exer cises. Aerobic exercises may include, walking, jogging, cycling, using the elliptical machine, rowing and jumping rope. Gradually build up to 20-30 minutes of aerobic exercise three or four days a week. Aerobic exercising everyday is optimal. Aerobic exercise strengthens the heart and lungs and over time can help decrease heart rate and blood pressure. Be aware of all the benets of exercise. One must be proactive in caring for their self, especially as we get older. The end result will be an improved quality of life. Be active!

Page 12 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 feelingfit.com feelingfit.com Susan Rosser is not afraid of being a pioneer. Neither is Dr. Beth-Ann Lesnikoski. Together they patient and sur geon made medical history earlier this month. Lesnikoski, along with several radiation colleagues at JFK Medical Center in Atlantis, performed on Rosser, 51, Floridas rst breast-cancer treatment with electron intraoperative radiation therapy (e-IORT). The procedure is performed only at a handful of facilities around the U.S. Think of it as one-stop oncology shopping: a lumpectomy with a (super-sized) side order of preventive electron radiation. Thanks to the state-of-the-art technology of a multimillion-dollar machine from Sordina Iort Technologies, Rosser received a 45-second dose of powerful, targeted radiation while still on the operating table. The dose, Lesnikoski explains, was the equivalent of undergoing four weeks of daily external radiation. Whats more, Lesnikoski continues, this form of radiation is far less harmful than standard radiation to patients skin, ribs, chest muscles, heart and lungs because it is administered while inside the breast whose healthy tissue and surrounding organs are protected by an internally placed shield. Two weeks post-surgery, Rosser said, I feel great and didnt even need any pain medication. And Lesnikoski reports that the two-hour outpatient procedure went as well as we could have hoped for. Good thing, too, considering how much time, effort, expense and travel went into bringing this cutting-edge treatment to the U.S. Lesnikoski and fellow breast sur geon Dr. Robert Gardner have both long been interested in the radiation techniques that have been standard practice in Europe especially Italy for the past decade. So, earlier this year, Lesnikoski, Gardner, radiation oncologist Dr. Georges Hatoum, and radiation physicists Dr. Xiaodong Wu and Dr. Yi Zheng traveled to Milan for a few weeks of intensive training with Italys leading intraoperative-radiation practitioners. The interdisciplinary approach is crucial, said Lesnikoski. Thats because the physicists handle the delicate and exacting calculations the aiming, if you will necessary to deliver the electrons precisely where they need to go. Likewise, radiation oncologist Hatoum who also has surgical training is responsible for the dosage delivery and duration. In addition, Hatoum, Wu and Zheng worked extensively with Sordina Iort Technologies to modify the machine so that it met U.S. specications for building codes and other safety standards. JFK Medical Center had to retrot its facility to accommodate this technology, Lesnikoski notes. The surgery was actually delayed by a couple of weeks as JFK nalized the building alterations. While JFKs oncology team was in Europe, Rosser was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer a 1-centimeter tumor. The rst surgeon Rosser visited recommended a double mastectomy and reconstruction. I felt that was like killing a y with a sledgehammer, recalls the married Palm Beach Gardens resident, whose 82-year-old mother is a 10-year breast cancer survivor. I thought, There has to be a less radical solution. When Rosser learned that Lesnikoski was preparing to debut the availability of the IORT procedure and that she would be an excellent candidate for it she said, I told Dr. Beth, I want to be your guinea pig! According to Lesnikoski, heres what made Rosser so suitable: She had a small tumor (4 centimeters or less). There was no lymph node involvement (meaning it had yet to spread). It was the BCIS form of the disease one that is considered highly invasive. Susans pathology indicated her breast could be preserved with oncoplastic surgery, Lesnikoski explains. The e-IORT which in this case is preventive would spare her from the standard six to seven weeks of post-surgical external radiation. Rosser will probably still need a couple of weeks of external radiation, but said, Thats better than doing it for nearly two months. Depending on their pathology, many future patients wont need any post-surgical external radiation, Lesnikoski said. I envision this treatment being a viable alternative for two groups: busy professional women and elderly ones who have difculty with transportation. Other than being relatively new and thus void of long-term data about the only drawback to this treatment is that it necessitates the surgeon make a bigger incision 7 centimeters instead of around 3 to accommodate the protective shield. This leaves a bigger scar. Even so, My scar is lined up perfectly with my bra line, so Im ne with it, Rosser said. As JFK oncology doctors become more procient with this radiation technology, Lesnikoski envisions it being used for other cancers, including pancreatic, rectal and uterine. And Lesnikoski stresses that what makes JFKs acquisition of this technology so commendable is that it will probably end up costing the hospital more money than it makes. But giving suitable patients the option of this treatment was, and is, the right thing to do.Breast surgery, radiation done at same time a Florida firstBy STEVE DORFMANCOX NEWSPAPERS BREAST CANCER FILE PHOTO 50468900 HELP IS HERE!

The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net Page 13 feelingfit.com feelingfit.com Faye Corman was leading the little boy with the deep brown eyes across the train platform when all of a sudden he stopped, planted his feet, and refused to move. Come on, Jon Paul, she urged him. No luck. She and her husband had adopted the 3-year-old from China a few months before, and communication was still tricky. There was the language barrier, sure, but also the boy was blind and always had been, as far as anyone knew. Hed just had a second surgery at Wills Eye Hospital, but the doctors did not hold out much hope that he would see. Suddenly, Jon Paul leaned forward, almost as though he were looking at something looking? and reached down to the concrete oor of the PATCO station in Westmont. He picked up a shiny, silvery gum wrapper. His mother started to cry. It all started with Camille. The Cormans adopted her from China in 2005, and in a few years they were eager to adopt again. But in the intervening period, China and other countries had started to have second thoughts about the large numbers of children headed to the United States. This time around, the adoption agency told the Cormans Chinese ofcials no longer considered them good candidates, Faye Corman said. The reason? Because her husband was blind. Never mind that Michael Corman, an accomplished lawyer and pianist, was a loving father to his daughter. The foreign adoption door seemed to be closed. Then the family learned about Madison Adoption Associates, a Wilmington, Del., agency that specializes in nding homes for children with special needs. The Cormans, who live in Barrington, N.J., approached the agency about adopting a visually impaired child. We said a lot of prayers, said Faye Corman, a product steward at DuPont. It took many months of paper work and advocacy, but nally in February 2011, the Cormans traveled to Fuzhou, in Fujian Province, a few hundred miles northeast of Hong Kong, to meet Jon Paul. The records from the orphanage had said something about an opacity in one eye. But when the couple met their son, it was clear he was pretty much blind in both eyes: running into walls, feeling his way up stairs, unable to see food on his plate. Not to worry. Michael Corman, who in 1991 became the rst blind graduate of Rutgers University law school in Camden, could help him learn to read Braille. And his wife, thinking ahead, had already made an appointment for Jon Paul at Wills Eye, founded in 1832 as the countrys rst eye hospital. Michael Corman had been treated there as a child for his congenital blindness, and he credits Wills Eye physicians for giving him some degree of light perception. It was hard to know just when to make Jon Pauls appointment because the nal adoption date was uncertain, but Faye Corman nailed it. Four days after landing on U.S. soil, her son went to the big, curved-front building on Walnut Street. That is when things got complicated. Alex V. Levin never gets tired of watching that rst moment when the bandages come off and a formerly blind child is able to see. Chief of pediatric ophthalmology and ocular genetics at Wills Eye, he frequently travels abroad to perform surgery on needy children. A month ago, he was in the Philippines, where one of his tasks was to remove cataracts from the eyes of a 6-year-old boy. You could see the wonderment, the bewilderment in the face of a kid who had not seen his whole life, Levin said. Increasingly, researchers are learning the brain is more plastic than once thought. Even if a child is blind for the rst few years of life, it is possi ble after corrective eye surgery for the brain to learn to interpret the new inux of visual information. Still, Levin was not highly optimistic about Jon Paul. The vision in the boys left eye was impaired by a thick, cloudy cataract, which might have been there since birth. And his pupil was in the wrong place at the top of his iris instead of dead center. None of this information was contained in the scant medical records sent by the orphanage. The boys right eye the one with the opacity was even more troublesome. Shrunken and scarred, it was essentially a dead eye, Levin said. Whats more, it contained bits of calcium a possible indication of cancer. The Cormans thought they were taking their son in for a one-hour appointment. It turned into a full-day affair, and Wills Eye oncologist Carol Shields said Jon Pauls right eye would have to come out. Levin performed the cataract sur gery in June 2011, and also enlarged the pupil so at least part of it would be located at the center forming a sort of keyhole shape. The next day came the gum-wrapper episode on the train platform. Faye Corman did not know just how well the boy could see, but evidently he saw something. Things have only gotten better since. Unlike with adult cataract surgeries, Levin did not put a new lens in Jon Pauls left eye, as it was smaller than normal. Instead, the boy was tted with thick-lensed plastic glasses, which take the place of his natural lens while also protecting the eye. The prescription has been tweaked several times in the three years since, and Jon Paul has made steady progress. By last summer, his vision was measured at 20/200, meaning that if a person with 20/20 vision could see something from 200 feet away, Jon Paul could see it from 20 feet. Far from perfect, but great for someone who was starting from near zero. With a new prescription in March, he now appears to be seeing even better, said his mother unable to tell the story without emotion. Miraculous, she said. We were very, very blessed, said her husband.At first sight: How doctors helped a blind toddlerBy TOM AVRILTHE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER EYE SURGERY PHOTO BY MATTHEW HALL/PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER/MCTJon Paul Corman poses for a portrait on July 8, 2014, at his home in Barrington, N.J.

Hes very nice, said 85-year-old Theresa McDaniel. Ive always liked animals. It wasnt really an animal. Residents and staff at the Sunny View Retirement Community, where McDaniel lives, have been trying out a robotic device called Paro that was developed by a Japanese inventor to serve as a mechanical pet for elderly nursing home residents. Designed to resemble a cute baby harp seal, Paro is an early entry in a new wave of interactive or socially assistive robots that university researchers and tech companies are developing for people with special needs, such as seniors with dementia, children with autism and adults who have suffered strokes or other conditions. Some critics are wary of such efforts, fearing they will lead to using machines as substitutes for human caregivers or companions. But researchers say robots like Paro can be a calming and socializing inuence on people who have cognitive problems that cause them to feel anxious or isolated. Its important to consider the ethics of using robots, said Maja Mataric, a University of Southern California professor of computer science who studies human-robot interaction. But she added that, for residents of some nursing homes, the alternatives might be staring at the oor for hours, or at a television set. Whats good about that? Isolation is a big concern with aging seniors, according to Sunny View activities director Katie Hofman. She said staffers at Sunny Views memory care center, where residents have varying degrees of dementia, have used a pair of Paro robots to draw people out of their rooms and into conversations reminiscing, for example, about pets they owned at earlier stages of their lives. Sunny View has a resident cat, and visitors sometimes bring dogs, but live animals can be messy or pose safety issues with some residents, Hofman said. Front Porch, the nonprot organization that operates Sunny View and several other California retirement centers, is evaluating wider use of the Paro robots, which are equipped with microprocessors and electronic sensors that respond to light, touch, movement and voices. They cost $6,000 each. During a ve-month test at Sunny View, the robots helped some residents focus and stay engaged, when their dementia would otherwise make them anxious or wander aimlessly, Hofman said. Weve been able to use it in place of medication at times. Eighty-nine-year-old Dorothy Hartley brightened when she spotted one of the Paro robots as she was rolling down a corridor in her wheelchair. She cradled it gently for several minutes as Hofman explained that Hartley, who tends to stay in her room, will come out and visit when the Paro is present. Jerry Vroom, 92, was less enthralled. What shall I say to you? he asked one of the robots, before handing it off to McDaniel. Here, you can have it, he said. Some residents act as if the Paro is a live animal, while others clearly recognize its not, Hofman said. They will say, Youre not real, are you? But they still think its cute, she said. The way I look at it is: If they respond as if its real, we want to honor that. Or if someone else, like Jerry, isnt interested, were not going to force it. But whatever will help them live their life in the fullest, were going to meet them there. Still, some critics worry about Paro. One of the most vocal, MIT social scientist Sherry Turkle, has warned that what she calls faux relationships with machines may detract from human connections. Its not just that older people are supposed to be talking. Younger people are supposed to be listening, Turkle said in a 2013 speech. We are showing very little interest in what our elders have to say. Robots like Paro may offer comfort to isolated seniors, Turkle has written, but it could make us less likely to look for other solutions for their care. Mataric argues that socially assistive robots can provide valuable reinforcement and motivation. At USC, she has developed small, humanoid robots that can engage with children who have autism disorders, or act as an exercise coach for someone recovering from a stroke. Initial studies have shown that when people interact with physically embodied machines, they engage more and they feel better, Mataric said. It taps into how we are wired, emotionally and socially. While robots arent a complete substitute for human interaction, she stressed, they may play a vital role since there just simply arent enough people to take care of our very large and growing elderly population. Mataric added: We need to think about the humane and ethical use of technology, because these things are coming.Meet Paro, a robot designed to help the elderlyBy BRANDON BAILEYSAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS HEALTHY SENIORS PHOTO BY GARY REYES/BAY AREA NEWS GROUP/MCT Dorothy Hartley, 89, hugs a robotic pet named Paro at the Sunny View Retirement Community in Cupertino, Calif., on Tuesday, July 8, 2014.

The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net Page 15 feelingfit.com feelingfit.com Leading healthcare organizations including the American Academy of Pediatrics, ihe World Health Organization and UNICEF recommend breastfeeding and breast milk as the optimal choice for infant nutrition and feeding. Mothers who dont breastfeed are at higher risk of ovarian and breast cancer, overweight, diabetes and osteoporosis. Breastfeeding also reduces stress levels, and exclusive breastfeeding delays and reduces bleeding with menstruation. Formula-fed babies are at higher risk of developing bacterial infections, diarrhea, respiratory and urinary tract infections, ear infections, diabetes, certain types of cancers, and childhood obesity. The benets of breastfeeding to premature infants also include the reduced risk of developing necrotizing enterocolitis and late-onset sepsis of the preterm infant. Breast milk offers a valuable source of fat, protein, calcium and other vitamins. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends exclusive breastfeeding for about 6 months, followed by continued breastfeeding as complementary foods are introduced, with continuation of breastfeeding for 1 year or longer as mutually desired by mother and infant. Continuation of breastfeeding even through the second year continues to offer immune benets, reduction of allergies and provides valuable nutrients. In Sarasota County, 85 percent of moms breastfeed, and this number rises every year. Although higher than the Florida average of 83 percent, we still have a lot of work to do. While 90 percent of Hispanic and 87 percent of white babies are breastfed, the number drops to 66 percent when we look at black infants. This gap follows state and national trends, but is wider than expected locally. Thankfully there is an excellent network of organizations and concerned individuals that meet bi-monthly as the Breastfeeding Advocates of Sarasota County (BASC), to address this and other breastfeeding issues about breastfeeding. If you have questions or need help with breastfeeding, Sarasota County has several free local resources. Whether it is a private consultation, group class, or support group, there is something for everyone.

Healthy Sarasota County is a local multi-sector campaign that addresses healthy lifestyle choices for schools, childcare centers, workplaces, families and the community at large. Two of Healthy Sarasota Countys programs address the important issue of breastfeeding. Healthy Sarasota County Childcare assists early learning centers assessing the policies and environments that support breastfeeding. Childcare centers attend a two-day training to learn best practices and write an action plan as part of a robust cer tication program. This action plan ultimately guides sites in creating comprehensive policies and supportive environments that address and support healthful infant feeding. Another program, Healthy Sarasota County Workplaces guides local businesses in best practices in workplace wellness programs. One of the recommendations is for workplaces to support parents in their decision to breastfeed by providing a place and time to express milk or by connecting employees to local resources. Businesses are provided with free signs, educational materials and strategic support for writing and implementing comprehensive breastfeeding policy.

Page 16 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 feelingfit.com feelingfit.com Good nutritional practices are the groundwork for a healthy and productive life. People with Parkinsons, and their care partners, have extra challenges to face as they navigate life with this progressive disease that causes tremors, slowness of movement, muscle stiffness and impaired balance. For people with Parkinsons, healthy eating is another strategy to ght the effects of the neurological disease. Like all of us, people with Parkinsons should strive to eat a balanced diet of carbohydrates, fats, ber and protein. Carbohydrates are the bodys preferred energy source. Fats especially healthy unsaturated fats are also used for energy. Protein contributes to cell growth, repair and maintenance. It is also important to get necessary vitamins and minerals from fruits and vegetables to truly feel your best. Drinking water throughout the day keeps us from becoming dehydrated and helps the entire body to function optimally. Because those who have Parkinsons already have a progressive disease to manage, it is important to try to keep other chronic diseases at bay. Vitamins E and C are antioxidants that combat free radicals (compounds that injure healthy cells) in the body. It is import ant that people with Parkinsons eat plenty of antioxidant containing foods such as blueberries and spinach. Parkinsons patients are at a greater risk for osteoporosis and falls which is why adequate amounts of Vitamin D and calcium are essential to keep bones strong. The body can create its own Vitamin D from 15 minutes a day of sunlight exposure or it can be found in foods such as salmon, pork and eggs. Vitamin D is essential for helping calcium be absorbed in the body calcium being the primary component of bones. Good sources of calcium include yogurt, cheese, kale and spinach. Protein serves many vital functions in the body, and it is important for people with Parkinsons to get adequate amounts. Protein-rich foods can diminish the effects of some Parkinsons medications when they are taken together, so taking medications an hour prior to eating can help them to work most efciently. Fiber is the bulky, indigestible part of plants that passes through the digestive tract. Fiber absorbs water in the body and helps with regularity. Those who have Parkinsons have higher instances of constipation so eating high-ber foods such as bran cereals, whole wheat bread, beans and broccoli can help relieve this condition. Sometimes diseases of the eye can occur in people with Parkinsons. Betacarotene is a type of Vitamin A that helps maintain retina function and is found in carrots and sweet potatoes. Leafy green vegetables and egg yolks contain lutein and antioxidants that may lower the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration. Finally, people with Parkinsons should always be sure to drink enough water. Adequate water consumption helps relieve constipation, prevents dehydration, aids in vitamin absorption in the body, and rids the body of waste. Always consult your physician if you notice any undesired weight loss, and before you make any changes to your regular eating habits.

Dorm life can be fun, but it can also put a dent in Mom and Dads pocketbook. We talked to a few college students and found that many items never even made it out of the box: irons, lap desk, hangers, storage containers and even TVs. Its an exciting time for you and your college-bound student. But, as the cost of college continues to rise, consid er some of these useful money-saving shopping tips. BOOKS Dont buy new books. Used books are the same and much cheaper. Rentals are popular, too. Try these sites: cheapest textbooks.com, campusbooks.com and bigwords.com. CLOTHING Unless its a coat or a jacket, dont buy any new clothing. Most students will jump up in the morning and head to class sporting yoga pants and a basic T-shirt. Think thrift shops. Denitely pack the ip-ops for communal bathrooms. TVS Kids consume their shows using Netix, Hulu and YouTube on their lap top, iPad or phone. Skip the TV. Colleges have televisions in common areas. BEDDING Youre lucky if your child will even make his or her bed. Skip the matchy matchy bedding ensemble. Basic white sheets, a comfy pillow and a comforter will do the trick. CREDIT CARD If youre going to do it, put a cap on the card. Remember to search wisely for the best interest rate for college students. MEALS Skip the fast-food joints, pizza deliveries and name-brand coee shops. In one week, a student can spend as much as $100 on these indulgences. If you purchase a meal plan, make sure your child sticks with it. Most universities have their own coee shops, pizza joints and burgers on campus, as part of the meal plan, to By KAREN DEERST.

Page 2 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 or two. That means no more sleeping until 9 a.m. or 10 a.m. (or noon for teenagers). Its time for more Zzs and pulling back on screen time. Sleep (or lack thereof) and technology often go hand in hand. Nearly three out of four children (72 percent) between the ages of 6 and 17 have at least one electronic device in their bedrooms while sleeping, according to a survey of parents by the National Sleep Foundation. Children who leave those elec tronic devices on at night sleep less up to one hour less on average per night, according to a poll of about 1,100 parents released by the foundation earlier this year. Dr. Stephanie Walsh, medical director of child wellness at Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta, offers the following tips to help ease our children (and ourselves) into an earlier morning routine. Develop a relaxing nighttime routine: Whats the best way to wake up on the right side of the bed? Start the night before. Whether its a bath, reading a book or listening to soothing music, every child has things that help them relax before going to sleep. Power off: The hour before bed should be a no-electronics zone. Studies show the light from back-lit electronics (like tablets, smartphones and video games) can disrupt our ability to fall and stay asleep. Designate a spot in your home for electronics to be plugged in, and have your kids start their bedtime routine by plugging in one hour before lights out. Get up and get outside: The best way to shake off summer slumber is to get some sunshine. So on those first days of your new routine, have the kids start their day by water ing the flowers, walking the dog or having a healthy breakfast on the patio anything that exposes them to daylight first thing. Dial down the screen time: Reduce screen time by 30 minutes (or more, depending on your childs level of obsession) each week until your reach your goal. (Rule of thumb: Try to limit recreational screen time to 60 minutes every day. For every 30 minutes of screen time, make sure your kids get 30 minutes of physical activity.) Its not just TV. Screen time includes time spent on TVs, computers, tablets, phones and video games outside of school work and leisure reading. Sobering fact: Kids ages 8-18 now spend, on average, a whopping 7.5 hours in front of a screen for entertainment each day, 4.5 of which are spent watching TV, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. Replace screen time with an activity: Its hard to get kids off the couch and get them moving, especially if they think of physical activity as exercise or boring. So, sometimes we need to get creative and make moving fun for kids. Ideas: a 20-minute-long family walk, 20 minutes of shooting hoops outside, 15 minutes of playing tag. Ban hand-held devic es from the bedroom: The burst of light from a phone (even if its just to check the time) can break a sleep cycle. A regular alarm clock is best. Establish good habits: Being distracted by phones, hand-held devices and TV shows during mealtime can not only lead to over eating, but additional unneeded screen time. And be a good role model: Parents, you are the role models in your home, so set a good example when it comes to screen time. Lead by example and encourage (but dont shame) your kids to do the same. SLEEPINGFROM PAGE 1to suit a childs interests. You can make math problems less of a problem by substituting the names, places and activities referenced in their homework with things your child cares about. Is your child on a sports team? Teach him or her how to analyze the statistics that came out of the latest game. Does your child love movies? Make up math problems about the latest box oce numbers. The possibilities are endless. STYLISH TOOLS Students want to have the freedom to embrace their own sense of per sonal style. Fortunately, opportunities for self-ex pression can even be found in math class. Most portable elec tronics today come in a variety of colors, so why not calculators too? Take school supplies to the next level with tools like Casios new line of scientic and graphing calculators, which come in pink, black, blue, gray and white. Their easy to use, durable calculators oer high-resolution screens, enhanced technological features and icon based menus. More information can be found at www.CasioEducation. com. EXTRA CREDIT Make sure your kids know just how import ant their success in math class is, by rewarding their good grades and extra time spent learning. Some might call it bribery, but you can think of it as positive reinforcement. And remember, extra time spent with math doesnt have to be boring. To get kids motivated, look for fun supplemental lessons on the Internet as well as computer games that employ math skills. Some school subjects, for some children, will need a bit of creative packaging to motivate them. Whether your kids struggle with math or are natural whizzes, take steps to make the subject more personal and more fun.MATHFROM PAGE 1 HOW MUCH SLEEP DO I NEED?Here are general sleep guidelines from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. They show that sleep changes as we age, but experts say there is no magic number for sleep, with individual needs varying. Newborns: 16-18 hours a day. Preschool-age children: 11-12 hours a day. School-age children: at least 10 hours a day. Teens: 9-10 hours a day. Adults (including the elderly): 7-8 hours a day.

The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net Page 3 FLAIR When it comes to luggage, figuring out what to buy isnt easy, since the selection is enormous, says Consumer Reports. According to the Travel Goods Asso ciation, U.S. consumers spent nearly $2.9 billion on luggage in 2013. With countless styles and a vast choice of merchandise, the task can be over whelming. Consumer Reports helps you narrow the field by highlighting attributes that will have the greatest impact. SIZE AND CAPACITY Dont pay attention to tags, labels or promotions that proclaim, Official Carry-On Luggage. Theres no regulation that dictates carry-on dimensions airlines impose their own restrictions, and the limits can vary among airlines and even among aircrafts. As a general rule, though, for most U.S. domestic flights, a 22-inch upright bag pass es muster. For overseas flights or domestic flights in other countries, youd be safer with a bag thats 20 inches in height. If youre buying larger luggage to check, the most common options are 24 to 30 inches (measured on the longest dimension of the case). You can find suitcases as large as 36 inches; check with the carrier for size limits. HOW MANY WHEELS? Two-wheelers. Suitcases with two wheels, also called rollers, utilize the same type of wheels found on in-line skates. They only roll forward and backward. The wheels are slightly recessed into the case, which confers two advantages: protection from snapping off (beneficial for checked luggage), and economy of space. If you need a suitcase that can easily clear curbs or roll on uneven surfaces such as sidewalks or cobblestones, a two-wheeler will work better than a four. This style has some shortcomings, though. Since you have to pull the wheeled case, some travelers complain that this position causes shoulder, wrist and back pain. Also, it can be cumbersome to drag a two-wheeler in a crowded space because you need some clearance between yourself and the bag. Four-wheelers. Suitcases with four wheels are also known as spinners because each wheel swivels 360 degrees, like on a shopping cart. You can push them, pull them, wheel them alongside you and turn them in any direction. They are also easier to navigate in tight spaces, such as the aisles of planes, trains, subways and buses. A heavy or large suitcase may be easier to manage with four wheels. If you are concerned about ergonomics, the spinner is a better choice than the roller because it does not put stress on your shoulder. There are some downsides to the four-wheelers. Since the wheels are externally mounted instead of recessed, they are more prone to snapping off. Spinner wheels also occupy valuable real estate within fixed allowable dimensions, reduc ing the amount of internal packing space. Its wise to check if the published size of the bag includes the wheels they will be included in the allowable dimensions for a carry-on. Another drawback: If your suitcase is on an incline, it could roll away. HARD-SIDED OR SOFT-SIDED? Soft-sided luggage is made of fabrics that move and yield. Its two biggest advantages are that it is usually lighter in weight and that it can flex and compress to conform to tight spaces. Hard-sided luggage, also known as hard-shell luggage, has come a long way. It used to be, you went with hard for maximum protection and soft for minimum weight. Today, hard-sided luggage is made with such high-tech plastics as ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), polycarbonate and others that are lightweight and durable. Hard-sides are best for protecting the contents of your luggage from breakage. They also provide better security because they have integrated locks and cant quickly be ripped open with a blade. That said, most composite plastic hardsides close with a zipper, which can be vulnerable. Hard-sided luggage stacks easily, making it ideal for cruise ships, which stack baggage in the belly of the boat before departure. CONSUMER REPORTS What to look for in luggage Here are some of the new releases for Aug. 12. First is a new release by Brian Setzer called Rockabilly Riot! All Original. Brian Robert Setzer was born on April 10, 1959, in Massapequa, N.Y., and is best known as a founding member of the 1980s band Stray Cats. Early in his life he learned to play dierent musical instruments but guitar was favorite. As a teen he would visit New York City and frequent the local jazz clubs, where he truly learned to appreciate music. After high school he and some friends formed the band Stray Cats and started playing throughout the Northeast region, but found out that America was not ready for a rockabilly revival just yet. They sold everything they had and bought oneway tickets to England to try and nd a fan base. Well it worked while in London they met a record promoter who was willing to produce their debut al bum. It took the band just ve days to complete their rst album which yielded two top 10 hits. The time was right to go back to America and see if they could make it there. There rst two albums were commercial successes and made the band a house hold name but the band was short lived by 1984 they broke up and went their separate ways. They have throughout the years reformed a few times for reunions. Then during the 1990s Brian Setzer once again reinvented himself with the revival of swing music. His band the Brian Setzer Orchestra was on the forefront of the jazzy swing songs that once again became popular. His version of the old Louis Prima song Jump, Jive, An Wail won him his rst Grammy award in 1998. This new release is billed as a Brian Setzer solo CD and has all the scorching sound and attitude of pure rockabilly from start to nish. Hes one cool cat, mama. Next we have a new re lease by Sinead OConnor called Im Not Bossy, Im The Boss. Oh, there are so many things we could write about her, like the Pope scandal, the shaved head, the public feud with Madonna and Frank Sinatra, the IRA statements, the newer feud with Miley Cyrus, the trying to become a Roman Catholic Priest, the list could go on and on, but for this article we will do our best to keep it on her music and early beginnings. She was born in Glenageary, County Dublin, Ireland, on Dec. 8, 1966. At a very early age her parents divorced. She was sent to live with her mother and was frequently abused, to the point her father tried to get custody, but back in that time in Ireland very rarely did fathers get custody, so she had to endure. By the time she was 13 she was able to move in with her father and began a new life. As a teenager she frequently got into trouble, eventually landing in a reform school. This is where her love for music began. She began writing songs and then joined a band. She was impossible to work with, but her singing and stage performance was what got the band noticed. She left the band and signed a record deal, but again her vision was not what the record company wanted so eventually they let go and allowed this 20-yearold woman to create her own album. Well it was a commercial success and earned her some Grammy nominations. Her second album was considered to be the second best album of the year. It was the cover of a Prince song Nothing Compares 2 U and the MTV video that made her a household name. She was the hottest thing in the music industry, then came the crazy antics (see above). After the Pope issue, she needed to be removed from the public eye. Her record company dropped her and she has fallen into obscurity. During the late 1990s she moved back to Ireland to raise her son and regroup. While back at home she studied music and started creating new music. This new CD is her 10th studio release, and if you enjoy Irish folk rock then give this one a try. Other major releases this week are from Gaslight Anthem, Tank, Twista (rap) and Reggae Gold 2014. Independent releases are from Kris Allen, Sheer Terror, Dilated Peoples (rap) and Mike Zito. Keep rockin folks! Brian Setzer pure rockabilly NEW TUNES HAVE A COMMENT?

Collectors of these unusual and rare pieces have a choice of thousands of products even though there may only be a few of any one item still around. Most of these are fun conversation pieces which can be the centerpiece for a collection such as Zippo lighters. A giant Zippo surrounded by 50 collectible lighters gets everyones attention. Whiskey bus have a slew of dierent brands in very large replicas of the regular sized bottle. Many are two or three feet tall. A collector of mini whiskey bottles can nd dozens of ways to incorporate one of these bottles in their display. You dont see many gigantic shoes and sneakers anymore, but at one time most shoe stores had two-foot shoes on display. Keds had a very large sneaker to remind you to buy Keds when in the store. Fountain pens were even bigger. I believe threeand four-foot models hung from the ceiling or from a sign outside the store. Waterman is the one I see occasion ally in antique shops. Im a sucker for these and if the price is right I want one. Auto parts dealers and garages often had a large spark plug promoting their wares. Big oil cans and big cans of wax were a big deal. There were enormous tea pots, severalfoot-long brier pipes, giant cameras, tempt ing soft ice cream in a cone and very large 78 rpm records. The records were often the sign hanging outside the store and a real one can sell for thousands. Locksmiths had a giant key for their signage. And of course there were gigantic Nipper dogs promot ing Victor talking machines. Even professionals loved these promo tional signs. You can try on a pair of glasses that would span across six or eight pairs of eyes. At the doctor you still see the big hearts and many of us remember that den tists used to display teeth that would need a jackhammer to x a cavity. That didnt help quell my fear of the buzzing drill. Some of the more interesting display items are the oversized perfume bottles. It seems at one time almost every major scent provided these fake bottles with fake liquid to the womens section of the department store. Most of these go for $50 to $200. I have only touched upon a small group of these big displays. You probably remember some in your hometown that were landmarks outside a store or con versation starters indoors. Where I lived you could meet by the giant Coke bottle or downtown under the giant 300 carat plastic diamond outside the jewelry store. Im not even talking about the 24-foot Paul Bunyan outside the lumber yard or the Big Boy hamburger sign on the restaurant roof. Those are a whole dierent size collectible and seem to appeal to guys like Mike and Frank on The American Pickers show.Store displays: The bigger the better ANTIQUES & COLLECTIBLESBy HERB FAYERSUN COLUMNISTLook what I found! HAVE A QUESTION?Herb Fayer has been collecting for over 30 years and knows his stu. If you have questions or comments please write to him at drjunk941@gmail.com and please tell him what city youre in. Why dont you book that hotel on Priceline? my friend asked me 10 years ago, when I was looking for a place to put my brother and his wife that didnt involve sleeping on my couch. It was my rst introduction to the world of online bidding for travel. I took her suggestion, solicited a few tips, and shortly thereafter got them a luxury waterfront hotel room for $70 that normally sold for $179. Not bad, I thought to myself. Ill have to do this again. If youve ever wondered what William Shatner is shilling on TV, or youve tried Priceline and it confused you, well, youre not alone. Heres my best eort to help clear up the fog. You can buy travel from Priceline three ways. The most well-known way (and the best deal) is to bid blind for hotels, cars or airfare, using the Name Your Own Price function. You do not know the name of the hotel, airline or rental agency from whom youre buying. When you Name Your Own Price for a hotel you enter a bid that you would like to pay for a certain class of hotel, based on the number of stars, and on the location. But you dont specify which hotel. If its a big city, youll have a choice of dierent districts, such as downtown or the West Side. Personally, I always go for a four-star hotel or above, on the theory that I want to stay in a hotel that I normally cant aord, or I might as well just go to Motel 6. The system will tell you what it thinks is the normal rack rate for that hotel and suggest a bid, but you can ignore it and bid as low as you want. In fact, bid low. If you win your bid and your oer is accepted, your credit card is charged immediately, and you then nd out the name of the hotel you will get. After you win, you cant back out. Youre stuck with it. No changes or refunds. This method is by far the most cost-eective way to use Priceline. Keep in mind that hotels use this service to ll unsold rooms. Sometimes, its just low season or low-occupancy periods, for example, business hotels have empty rooms over holidays. Sometimes, it means the hotel is unpopular because its dirty, shabby or the management stinks. Youre taking a risk when you book, because youre stuck with the outcome. So make sure you bid low to make it worthwhile. Priceline also oers hotels by name that you can reserve online. These named hotels may not of fer a particularly good deal. Often, you can get your room as cheaply on the hotels website or by using your Auto Club discount. I never use this function on Priceline, and I dont suggest you do, either. A third option is express deals, which are similar to Hotwire deals in that you dont know the name of the hotel, its cheaper than the named oerings, but you dont have to undergo the agonizing stress of bidding. Youre not going to get as good a bargain as if you bid, but its faster. You can also reserve rental cars and buy airline ights on Priceline. The rental rates dont include extra insurance, and note that some rental companies will hound you to buy their extra insurance, which can get quite pricey. If youre going to bid for a ight on Priceline, keep in mind that youre bidding for any ight within a 24-hour day. So you could leave any time between 12:01 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. that day. This means its not a good method for week end getaways, because you could nd yourself leaving at 11:59 p.m. on Saturday night, and coming back at 1 a.m. on Sunday morning. And, of course, you wont have a choice of airline. But it could still be a good deal if you must y somewhere last minute and youre facing huge fares. Bidding tips: When you bid, start low. Pick a price lower than seems likely, and lower than the Priceline analysis tells you. You can bid once every 24 hours, so come back and bid again if you get rejected. I once got a $180-pernight Marriott hotel room in Atlanta for $79. I thought that was a steal, until I found out that someone else got that same hotel for $41 a night. The following night, I tried again and got the second night for $41 as well. Sweet! Except that I felt stupid, of course, for overpaying the rst time around. Sometimes you dont have to wait 24 hours to bid again after youve been rejected. For hotels, start out bidding in the smallest map area that Priceline allows. If your hotel bid gets rejected and you want to bid again immediately, enlarge the area in which youre searching or change the star level of the hotel. The system will let you bid again on this dierent conguration. Note that any resort fees the hotel charges wont be included; youll still get stuck with them on top of what you pay Priceline. Important point: For hotels, Priceline will not guarantee the number of beds in the room, regardless of the number of guests you report. You could show up and nd out theres only one bed for three people. If you denitely need multiple beds, either be willing to gamble the hotel will oblige, or use Hotwire, which usually will guarantee the bed setup. Priceline does have a mobile app, with a groovy photo of William Shatner on it, but the full version is a bit easier to use. Want more tips about using Priceline?

The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net Page 5 FLAIR My friend Lillian and I started eating break fast together on Sunday mornings, but the Cultural Center, her usual dining place, had stopped serving breakfast on Sundays. Lillian is close to 90, and understandably, hesitates to use the stove unless she has to. For several years, she has relied upon the Center for her daily meals till the cut back, or whatever reason they decided to stop serving. During our outings, weve discovered that there are very few breakfast places open in Port Charlotte on Sundays! One morning we headed up to Broadway Bagels only to discover that the place was out of business. So we back tracked and had breakfast at the Olympian good break fast by the way. Last Sunday we tried Bob Evans and enjoyed delicious cinnamon pancakes and excellent grits. To my delight, Bob Evans had redecorated, giving patrons more space and privacy, along with a re-done menu. Our next Sunday eat-out probably will be IHOP or Perkins, the only other break fast places in Port Charlotte that I can think of. We have an influx of great restaurants and small eateries open all week, but unfor tunately many are closed on Sundays. One place that Lillian is very fond of is Abbes Donut Nook, located off Forest Nelson Boulevard. Best apple fritters in the world, but again, closed on Sundays. It would seem to me that a small restaurant or donut shop would take advantage of the Sunday closings and keep their doors open for business! I would. Thanks for any comments, and thanks for reading! Abbes is located at 2150 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte. Phone: 941-979-5086.

EATING ON THE CHEAP Open for business, but never on Sundays By MARY KLEISSSUN COLUMNIST HAVE A RECIPE?Mary Kleiss welcomes calls, suggestions and recipes for her column. Email her at mkleiss@msn.com, or call 941-889-7297.Food is prevalent at the re station. On any given day, thankful citizens stop by with all kinds of cakes, cookies, or whatever they have baked. On occasion the manager at the local grocery store may even stop in with something from the bakery as a kind thank you to the local reghters. We do ap preciate all these kind gestures, and coee cake with hot cup of java rst thing in the morning is great, but it doesnt do much for the waistline. But we have to learn that just because its there does not mean we have to eat it! Fireghting is a physically demanding job that requires strength, endurance and mental sharpness. There is an old saying that you are what you eat. And if youre that guy at the station that has to sample every dough nut, cookie and cake that comes in the door, then you will be a dough ball. On the other hand, if you eat sweets in small portions and in moderation, then you will be able to enjoy the occasional sweet treat without the worries of overindulgence or gluttony. Most times we label our food with our names, or shift, and the rule is Hands o with a name. No name, fair game. Those of you with teenagers know that at home this does not apply, even straight A students forget how to read when they are hungry, and they are always hungry. So some friendly advice whether at the station or at home, if you really, really want it and are looking forward to it, buy two. And Thats bringing the rehouse home!

Even if your kid is to tally hyped about turtles thanks to the soon-to-bereleased Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, dont buy them one, pleads American Tortoise Rescue. Real turtles are boring to most kids, can transmit diseases and too often end up dead when a family tires of them, the group says in a letter to parents posted on its website. The rescue group, based in California, says that since the rst TMNT movie was released in 1990, thousands of turtles mostly small red-eared sliders were purchased, and many ended up dumped in lakes or rivers or even deliberately killed or ushed down the toilet. Children, the group added, do not realize that real turtles do not y, perform stunts or do any of the exciting moves ctional movie turtles do. I could not quickly verify their movie-led-todead-turtles assertion, but the Humane Society of the United States agrees turtles make bad pets. In fact, it says, To protect your health, the earth and the animals, please dont get a turtle for a pet! Turtles can carry salmonella and can transmit the disease to children. In 2007, a baby girl in Florida died from salmonella she got from a turtle, the soci ety said. If released in the wild, pet turtles can die, spread disease to other animals or compete with native species for food. The rescue group says if youve got kids eager to recapture ninja turtle movie magic at home, buy them an action gure or some other turtle toy. You know those wont be hard to nd.Dont buy kids pet turtles because they love the mutant ninja movie, rescue group saysBy LESLIE POSTALORLANDO SENTINEL PHOTO PROVIDED WASHINGTON Gluten-free labels on packaged foods have now real meaning. Until now, the term gluten-free had not been regulated, and manufacturers made their own decisions about what it means. This new requirement is especially important for people who suer from celiac (SEE-lee-ack) disease and dont absorb nutrients well. They can get sick from the gluten found in wheat and other cereal grains. Food manufacturers faced a Tuesday deadline to ensure that anything labeled gluten-free contains less than 20 parts per million of gluten ensuring that those products are technically free of wheat, rye and barley. That amount is generally recognized by the medical community to be low enough so that most people who have celiac disease wont get sick if they eat it.Gluten-free labeling standards kick inBy MARY CLARE JALONICKASSOCIATED PRESSWhoever thinks life is fair never heard of Kim Kardashian.

Page 6 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Sunday, August 10, 2014 satisfy your cravings. DORM DECOR Dont overspend on dorm decorations. Buy a poster of your childs favorite model, actress, TV show or movie. One poster can start up a conversation. SNACKS Hold o buying snacks. Wait to see what type of food the dining hall has. Most likely, the food your kid wants will be there. SCHOOL SUPPLIES Dont overdo it on school supplies. Its not like middle school where you shop from the school list. Start with just a few notebooks and pens or pencils. JEWELRY STANDS Dont bring the huge jewelry hanger. Your child wont use it, and theres no place to store it. STUDENT DISCOUNTS Look for student discounts at stores such as J. Crew Factory. Students get at extra 15 percent o when they show their student ID. Many museums oer discounted admission prices when using a student ID, even abroad. MICROWAVE Dont buy the smallest microwave. Some micro waveable popcorn bags wont even fit once its popped. PHOTOS Limit the number of friends and family pho tos. Buy cheap frames. Dont go for high-end frameworks. Youll risk them getting broken or damaged. COMPUTERS Stay away from laptops with low memory. You may end up buying a second laptop by junior year. Invest in a PC or Mac with at least 6 GB of RAM. Microsoft releases monthly updates that could slow your machine down. Look for a computer that fits both academic and per sonal needs. CELLPHONE PLANS This can be tricky. If you buy a plan with limited text and talk time, odds are you will exceed this time. In the long run, you may be spending more on your monthly phone bill for extra minutes. Look for plans that offer unlimited text/talk time. TRANSPORTATION A car can be a hindrance with parking, insurance and car payments. Check out public transit on college campuses. You may find public transit is the cheaper way to go. COLLEGEFROM PAGE 1PHOTO PROVIDED At the top of many back-to-school shopping lists is an item that might be a bit pricier than a pair of jeans or a new skirt. But unlike those articles of clothing, this is something that your child whether a preschooler or a teen will wear every school day. The mighty backpack has come a long way, says Russell Fine, product manager for REI. He sug gests parents do research before choosing a pack. REI looks for a lot of features in what were considering in a great back-to-school backpack, he says. First and foremost, it has to be comfortable and versatile. We also know that students are looking for compact packs with exible organization, and something that will ac commodate and protect their electronics. Youre going to have a dicult time talking your elementary-school-aged child into a basic black backpack, says Soa Wacksman, vice president of trend for Kohls department stores. This year, back-toschool accessories are all about having fun, she says. Accessorize with bright colored bracelets, layer on silly socks and sport a quirky printed backpack. All are an easy, aordable way to update your look. Even teens look for bright colors and intricate patterns, and those packs are oered by many higher-end sporting goods stores. But if you think only high-schoolers who often seem to tote their body weight in books need a sturdy pack, consider all the wear and tear a younger child can inict on a pack, dragging it through mud and swinging it by its straps. Pam R. Jones, senior designer for backpacks at L.L.Bean, says even the companys backpacks for the younger set are made to last. And theres nothing worse than a zipper malfunction, causing contents to dump out into hallways for all to see. The investment upfront far outweighs the embarrassment, inconvenience and cost of pack failure, Jones says. Packs are used daily by most students and have a life beyond school for activities, sports and travel. A good pack will last many years. L.L.Beans customers have shared stories of book and backpacks that have lasted from grade school to grad school, Jones says. Jones suggests looking for luggage-grade fabrics think nylon, polyester and canvas with reinforced bottoms when looking at packs. Avoid plastic at all cost no matter how low that cost may be. Also, take a good look at those zippers, which fail on many of the less expensive packs, and look for self-repairing nylon coil zippers, for instance. Details, like bound-seam construction inside the pack, secure shoulder-strap connec tions, reective material for good visibility and PVC and lead-free materials are important, as well. Another wise move? Look for positive customer reviews. Finally, Jones oers this checklist of things to consider for your childs comfort and safety: The weight of a pack should not strain or cause discomfort, especially with growing students and young adults. Do not low ride a pack or let it hang low on the shoulders or be low the waist. Adjust the shoulder straps snugly. Use a waist belt when riding, skating or with heavier loads to help support the weight and keep it from bouncing or shifting. Rotate the contents of the pack for daily needs and eliminate unnecessary items. A rolling backpack may be an option for extra heavy loads or kids with special physical needs. Remind kids that their pack should be comfort able. If it hurts, the pack may be overloaded or poorly adjusted. With this wise advice in mind, weve gathered up a few packs sure to keep your kid in style and comfort throughout the year. L.L.Bean Junior Original Backpack ($24.95, llbean.com).

T his neednt be a difficult one to figure out. Make it your priority, and suddenly the universe will seem to align in support. TA URUS (A pril 20-May 20). C onflict is part of life and nothing to run from. Todays conflict could benefit you further down the road if y ou commit to working through it to a mutuall y a g r eeable solution. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). What is going on with the new generation? There wa s a time when they were rebe llious and another time when they were indulged. Now the biggest problem is how entitled they feel. Yo ur influence will help matters. CANCER (June 22-July 22). To seize your opportunities, you must first recognize them. What is needed? How can you bend whats available to meet the need? Theres a niche to be filled, and y oure j ust the one to do it. LEO (J uly 23-Aug. 22). Sparks ignite flames. Fire spreads. Away it goes the small excitement, surrounded by amenable influences, turns into a blaze. The lesson here is: Be careful what you spark to. VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept. 22). Magical transformations can come from small motions. Dont underestimate your powers of influence. Pe ople will be changed by what you t each or model toda y LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Y ou know that passions must be harnessed, and lately youve shown incredible self-control in this area. Y ou may still long to send your passion into being, but youre also a r ealist and will study the trajectory. SCORPIO (Oct. 24 -Nov. 21). There are many levels between casual and formal. Youll navigate all of those gray areas and figure out what to wear, say and do and finally what to be as a result of all y ouve experienced. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).

Co mmunicating with the ones you love most will be an exercise in ex treme listening: listening more than you talk, listening between the lines, listening with an open heart. AQU ARIUS (Jan 20-Feb. 18). You are observant and will intuit what is about to happen before it happens. So act on those hunches, even when doing so may seem a bit strange to the others around you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Any fool can force things along, but it takes a strong person to be gentle. Your gentle ways will open previously locked doors. You will be wat er, following the path of least r esistance. Let Israel hope in the Lord for with the Lord there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption. Psalms 130:7. How true. For all people every where, our only hope is in the Lord.

Sunday, August 10, 2014ads.yoursun.netE/N/C The Sun Classified Page 15 W omans bikini top gets harsh review from mom D ream deferred DEAR ABBY: Im a 24-year-old plus-sized woman (60 or 70 pounds overweight), but very comfortable in my own skin. When swimming in public, I wear a one-piece bathing suit because it doesnt attract a lot of attention. When Im home, I have a bikini top and shorts I prefer to wear. This is because I dont like being covered up like it was in the 1950s, and I feel good when my curves are properly accentuated. When I go back to see my family and swim, I w ear a bikini top and black shorts. Recently, my mother said, When the family comes over you cant wear that. It makes people uncomfortable. I was shocked, and we had a huge argument. M ost of my cousins are ne with my attire, as are my aunts. Only M om has a problem with it. I asked if shed feel the same about a large man swimming without a T-shirt. She said its different for women. Am I wrong for wanting to be comfortable in my childhood home? M om should be proud to have a daughter who accepts herself as she is. Who is wrong here? OFFENDED DAUGHTER IN CHICAGO DEAR OFFENDED DAUGHTER: Y ou are not wrong for wanting to be comfortable. But please remember that when you visit someone elses home, that persons wishes take precedence even if it used to be your childhood home. While you say you are comfortable in your own skin, it would be interesting to know what your physician thinks about your obesity. I suspect that your mo ther would be prouder of you if you we re less complacent and more willing to do something about your weight problem. DEAR ABBY: I am the mother of three beautiful daughters. I have been married for 11 years now. I married at 19, just after high school. My husband is 18 years older. The rst ve years of marriage, when I fully depended on him, he was arrogant, violent and unfaithful. He hurt me so badly that I vowed to work hard and when I was independent, I would move away. Now I have a stable job but my kids love him, and I know they will be hurt. My hu sband is jobless now. He tells me he supported me when I was jobless, so its my turn to take care of him. I stay because I feel guilty. Should I nally forgive him, and if so, how? BITTER IN NAIROBI DEAR BITTER: If you truly want to forgive your hu sband for the physical and emotional abuse you suffered in the early years of your marriage, a place to start would be to talk with your spiritual adviser. You di dnt mention whether your husband is trying to nd another job, if there is a valid reason why he cant work, or if hes still unfaithful. If its the latter, then in my opinion, you o we him the same amount of nancial support that he gave you an d nothing more. Howe ver, because I am not familiar with the marriage laws in Kenya, you should discuss this with a lawyer.

(Shipping and handling are included in the price.)Hoof picksDear Heloise: My daughter used to ride horses every day. I learned about horse-hoof picks from helping her at the barn. It occurred to me what a great tool this would be around the house. It has a strong metal pick on one side and a stiff-bristle brush on the other. I bought one the next time we we re at a tack store, and after several years, its strong as ever. Its great when something needs scraping, then brushing, before vacuuming, like a sliding-door track or the groove lines in our aggregate concrete patio. Mary McFadden, Elk Grove, Calif.Quick labelDear Heloise: Whenever I need to label something of my sons and I dont want the label to last permanently, I write his name on a piece of masking tape and stick it on the item. It easily comes off with no damage. Tiffany, via emailLosing the capDe ar Heloise: I was always losing the cap to my ash drive. It would fall between the cushions or on the oor, or I would forget where I had put it down. Finally, I solved my problem. I hot-glued one end of a long string to the cap and tied the other end to the lanyard I always keep the ash drive on. Now the cap is always there when I need it. Maritta G., Fred erick, Md.Right lengthD ear Heloise: Here is a quick-and-easy way to nd the proper-length tablecloth. I hang mine on a hanger in the closet. I label each one with a note and a straight pin no leaves, one leaf, etc. This saves time when trying to nd the correct tablecloth when company is coming to dinner. Judy L.S., Somers, Wis.Grimy guttersD ear Heloise: My gutters were dirty with grime from years of spring oaktree dust. After power-washing with no results, I tried a scrub-free type of bathroom cleaner. The grime just melted off. After spraying with a wet cloth, I wiped the gutters. They looked brand-new! D.C., via emailCarry in carDear Heloise: I always carry an old sheet in my car in case I see an animal that has been hit by a car and needs to be moved. Ive had to use it once. I gave it to a dogs owner and let him transfer the dog to the sheet. I also carry an old tennis racket. It comes in handy to put between y ou and a dog as a shield (not a club) in case it looks like it might bite. Ive never had to use it, but I think real estate agents and delivery people might want to carry one. Sherry G., Cecil, Ala. What great hints! The old sheet also can be used to protect your seats if you see a stray and want to pick it up. Heloise DEAR PRUDENCE: My partner was brought to the U.S. illegally as a child. Around the age of 16 he bought another persons identity. He has been using this persons So cial Security number ever since and has a successful career, etc. Wed like to get married in the next few years. What are the implications down the road? He Paid for His I dentity DEAR PAID: How terrible it must be to be a person brought here as a child, living the life of a productive American citizen, while knowing that at any time the government might unmask the lie at the heart of a good life. I spoke with Crystal Wi lliams, executive director of the American Im migration Lawyers Association. She natur ally and correctly said that your partner needs to consult with his own immigration attorney to understand what could happen in his case, but she supplied a general outline of what your future husband might face. Sh e pointed out that a crucial piece of information is how he got here. If he was sneaked across the border, that could r equire that he leave the country in order to regularize his status, which in turn could trigger a 10-year bar from returning. Because Congress has failed to pass the DREAM Act, which would provide potential re lief to young people brought illegally to this country as children, the administration created a (probably temporary) r eform called Deferred A ction for Childhood Arrivals. If your partner is eligible for DACA, it could help mitigate his jeopardy in regard to that initial illegal entry. Wi lliams also pointed out the dangers inherent in having bought someone elses name and So cial Security number, which could be aggravated identity theft. Since y our partner has surely lled out employment forms, if hes falsely declared himself to be a citizen, thats a crime which can prevent someone from gaining legal status. It goes on and on and nding out condentially what the potential pitfalls are and what remedies (if any) are available is why people pay lawyers. But of course, we dont know how many people like y our partner are simply hiding in plain sight, successfully pulling off the subterfuge, maybe for a lifetime. In any case, y ou two should check out D ene American, the advo cacy group co-founded by Pu litzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Va rg as, who was brought here as a boy, pretended to be an American citizen, then came out as an undocumented person. I recommend y ou both watch his moving documentary D ocumented. Prudie DEAR PRUDIE: I am being bullied at work. Im a professional woman in a eld with limited opportunities. I work in a very small ofce and am the newest and y oungest employee. Si nce I started, the mean girls have excluded me from conversations, grow hushed when I walk into a room, and have been generally unfriendly. Ive been brushing it off and gured it would take me time to integrate. Then I overheard two of them saying some petty and nasty things about my appearance and attire. How can I ha ndle this situation, and perhaps confront the mean girls, without propagating the cycle of bullying? Sick of Meanies DEAR SICK: Youre a young professional, but we dont know if the mean girls are your superiors or if they are support staff. Of course wherever you are in the hierarchy does not justify their behavior, but if they have administrative duties, it could be they r esent being subordinate to you and other new, y oung professionals and enjoy hazing all of y ou. Whatever the origin of their ridiculousness, do not start off by going the confrontation route. In stead, occasionally bring in for everyone in the ofce a homemade platter of brownies or a basket of fruit you got from a farm stand. Since these women have been around forever, turn to them occasionally for advice, even if its the last thing you want to do. Be gracious and unappable. Maybe yo u ll never win these mean girls over, but on some level they will have to recognize how petty theyre being by mocking y our outts. So keep in mind that for the time being, youre still new and untested.
