When Ken Rouleaus mother opened a SunTrust bank account, he said she put him on the account so she wouldnt have to leave the house. He said he only intervened when asked. However, in the process of trying to close the account after she passed away, the Punta Gorda resident discovered a pre-authorized $34 electronic withdrawal paid monthly to an unknown source. Ken said he requested SunTrust to stop it, but the bank said hed have to contact the billing party. Since he didnt know who that was, he asked for it. They stated they did not know who the source was and couldnt release that info, Ken wrote me. They would have to wait to close the account because all activity on the account had to be completed. Despite calls and visits to two branches, payments continued. Each triggered a $36 overdraft fee. SunTrust nally closed the account. Then it sent Ken an overdrawn balance of $315.92, and eventually put the account in collection. I contacted SunTrust and the next day, Ken said he got a call from a bank representative. He said the amount owed will be totally erased, recounted Ken. He stated Sun Trust should not have refused to give us the requested information, agreed we did nothing wrong, and apologized. There are protective federal regulations to prevent SunTrust from doing what it did. SunTrust includes them in its deposit account disclosures document. The protections apply to every nancial institution in the country, regardless where the transfer occurs, or whether its a bank or credit union. Besides consumers being entitled to details of electronic transfers, with three business days prior notice to cancel, future pre-authorized electronic funds transfers must be blocked. The nancial institution doesnt have to wait for the merchant to terminate the transfer. The notice can be verbal, although some institutions may require it in writing. Regardless, put it in writing. If possible, also notify the merchant in writing, and give the nancial institution a copy. If a national bank refuses to cooperate, le a complaint at www.HelpWithMyBank.gov or call the Ofce of Comptroller of the Currency at 800-613-6743. For credit unions, contact the National Credit Union Administrations consumer assistance center at www. MyCreditUnion.gov or call 800-755-1030. For both, also le complaints with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau at www. consumernance.gov or call 855-411-2372. And while were on the subject of electron ic funds, a quick warning about your debit card, especially in light of recent breaches including Home Depot. Unlike credit cards where liability is limited to no more than $50 unauthorized use of a debit card can wipe out your entire bank account. Thats because the only way youre capped at $50 liability is by notifying the bank within two days of the loss or theft. Within 60 days, the cap is raised to $500. After that, you could lose everything, and possibly more, if theres overdraft protection. So check your bank activity frequently. In addition, create debit card alerts online and text informing you if the card is used online, by phone, or outside the U.S. And set a specic amount that triggers an alert for any transaction including an ATM withdrawal.

Moments later, county commissioners approved a $915.7 million total budget for 2015, a 5 percent increase from the previous year. The County Commission also maintained the same 6.3007 millage rate. One mill equals $1 in taxes for every $1,000 of a propertys taxable value. Under the proposed millage, a property owner with a house valued at $100,000, with a $50,000 homestead exemption, would pay $315 Budget gets boostBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERFrugal county approves increase INCREASE | 12 SUN PHOTOS BY ADAM KREGERThe owner of Scotties Last Chance Saloon in Solana George Scottie Scott, 78 was diagnosed with ALS in 2005. As a result of the disease, his muscles have deteriorated and its been three years since he last was able to visit his bar. His daughter, Karen, 51 (also pictured), now manages the saloon. She has organized an all-day ALS fundraising event there Saturday. SOLANA Before opening Scotties Last Chance Saloon 30 years ago in the Solana neighborhood of Punta Gorda, George Scottie Scott was a do-it-all worker at a couple of shipyards in Jamestown, R.I. He even operated the cranes. Hailing from Scotland, George Scott also was a paratrooper in Great Britain and a hockey play er in Canada. His bar patrons, many of whom have been loyal customers for years, have enjoyed listening to his stories over the years. But that was when George Scott could still speak clearly and actually make it out to his saloon. He hasnt been there in three years. Though the 78-year-old is still sharp as a tack, his speech is slurred and he spends most days at home since he cant walk anymore.

The 34-year-olds new lungs had arrived from an organ donor at Tampa General. The Englewood father of three could get the transplant he desper ately needed. On Sept. 10, Davis went under the knife enduring an eight-hour surgery to remove his lungs that were heavily damaged by idiopathic pulmonary brosis. The doctors said my lungs were lled with uid and scars, he said. He said they were heavy, like bowling balls. After they saw the lungs, they werent sure how I was breathing. Davis said, prior to the operation, it was difcult to tell his 7-year-old twin boys, Wyatt and Noah, and 4-year-old son, Colton, that he was going into the hospital and wasnt coming out until he had new lungs. He was unsure when he would be back at home. However he was encouraged to learn that he truly wasnt just on a waiting list anymore. He was going to be the 401st patient at Tampa General to receive a lung transplant. Number 400 was just days before. I never felt stressed out about the transplant, said Davis, whose condition worsened over the past year from a simple cough. The doctors and nurses were amazing. They told me what to expect. They made me feel extremely comfortable. It was a very nice, pleasant and positive atmosphere. There was never a time when I didnt feel like I wasnt going to come through. It was a great experience. When Davis awoke two days after the surgery, he knew something was different. He could breathe on his own without the oxygen tank he relied on for so many days. It didnt feel like I was underwater, he said. I was never a smoker. Doctors didnt know how I had gotten such a bad set of lungs. Davis calls his recovery a miracle, so much so that he was allowed to leave the hospital after 13 days, instead of the anticipated 21. The ashy appearance to his skin has cleared up, as breathing more freely has rejuvenated it, with his normal color returning. Oxygen was getting to my skin nally, he said. My recovery is ongoing. Its a continuous effort. I have to go back to the hospital every Monday for the next two months. Doctors will be checking to see how my lungs are functioning. I was told not to be scared if I show signs of rejection. I just have to tell the doctor. Davis said hes been asked if he feels differ ently than he did before, now that he has someone elses lungs. His answer is no, it doesnt feel weird. Hes very grateful he can breathe on his own. He experiences tightness in his chest, but says its due to his incisions. Its unbelievable it has all happened in Gods right timing, he said. It worked out perfect. Davis said he plans to send a letter to the donors family. I am so incredibly grateful, sending a letter is the least I can do, he said. I will wait to see if I ever hear back from the family. One donor can help save up to 10 other people through a donation of eyes, heart, lungs, kidneys, liver and skin tissues. In order to help Davis with ongoing medical bills, there have been local benets, including a dinner at The Hills Restaurant in Rotonda. It made more than $3,500. Theres a golf tournament planned for Saturday. I cant go out for about three months, he said. I have to wear a mask when friends come over. I dont mind. Its a small price to pay to breathe again. It would take me all day to thank everyone who has helped me, including my wife, my sister, church members (West Coast Church), local businesses, friends and strangers. Davis has chronicled his journey on a Lungs for Jeremy page on Facebook, which has about 1,360 likes. We asked for prayers, he said. I was amazed at how many people reached out. We posted a photo and 740 people looked at it. I thank everyone for their support.Email: email@example.comJeremy Davis gets new lungsBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHSTAFF WRITER Jeremy Davis must wear a mask and be isolated for about three months as he recovers from a recent lung transplant. The Engle wood father says he is doing well, and is happy to be home from the hospital after a 13-day stay.

The Sun /Friday, September 26, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 3 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT Newly appointed City Attorney Mark Moriarty said during Thursdays City Commission workshop that the Warm Mineral Springs Day Spa could reopen to swimmers as early as Saturday, once the board works out the lease. Commissioners and members of the public briey discussed the Springs. During the discussion, Moriarty stated the closing on the property should happen today. Closing is expected (today), and I have no indication that the closing will not occur, he said. Commissioner Rhonda DiFranco initially had the Springs added to the workshop agenda to talk about the future of the 81-acre property and its 87-degree, mineral-rich lake, following the city of North Ports agreement to purchase Sarasota Countys half of the day spa. The two governments purchased the Springs jointly for $5.5 million in 2010. The day spa closed for the second time in just over a year on Aug. 31, after the boards could not come to a consensus on a longterm operator for it, and short-term operator National and State Park Attractions contract expired. Previously, it had been shuttered for nine months starting in July 2013, again because the city and the county failed to secure a new operator. Frustrated, the county in July offered up its half of the property, and North Port commissioners agreed 4-1 to purchase Sarasotas share for $2.75 million. Mayor Jim Blucher voted against the transaction. Ideas about zoning, repairs, conservation and other issues were expected to be brought up by commissioners Thursday. The workshop, however, turned into more of a discussion of whether to discuss any thing until the Springs is entirely the citys. Commissioner Tom Jones was especially vocal at the workshop, saying he did not want to have any discussion regarding leasing, future zoning or money until the deal was done. Weve got to have the closing rst we shouldnt be discussing it until we own it, Jones said to city staff and his fellow commissioners. DiFranco said she wanted to open the oor to dialogue regarding the many options for the Springs, but added that not having the deal sealed yet prevented the commission from being able to fully dive in. The all-day, multitopic workshop left only an hour for commissioners to discuss any plans for the reopening of the Springs. When I put this to a workshop, I wouldve thought wed own it, DiFranco said. It certainly wouldve been the right time to go there to talk about the details, but now we dont have a lot of time to get into a lot of these details, she said. Residents were alloted three minutes each to voice their opinions on the issue. Thank you for your work on purchasing the property, resident Grover Howard said. The people of North Port want to help with Warm Mineral Springs. Theres some right great folks who want to help. Give them a chance. DiFranco added before the workshop concluded that the commission will plan to have strategic meetings and workshops as the city moves forward as the Springs sole owner. Citizen involvement can be talked about at the next workshop, and creating an advisory board or even having a town hall meeting, she said. We can even all go into Warm Mineral Springs and sit down and have a discussion with the community. We still have to make decisions in a workshop that makes policies (unfortunately), we have to push this off to another workshop. Commissioners were slated to discuss a $579,360 management agreement with State Park to continue to operate the Springs during a special meeting Thursday night at City Hall.Attorney: Springs may reopen SaturdayBy SAMANTHA GHOLARSTAFF WRITER G e t H o o k e d G e t H o o k e d G et Hooked!

Compiled by Adam KregerReport: Second suspect arrested in shooting | POLICE BEATThe information for Police Beat is gathered from police, sheriffs office, Florida Highway Patrol, jail and fire records. Not every arrest leads to a conviction and guilt or innocence is determined by the court system.The family of a boy allegedly molested in 2011 by former Eucharistic Minister Robert Little says they are outraged church ofcials claim there was no report at the time accusing Little of abuse. A $5 million lawsuit led Monday against the Diocese of Venice and its bishop, Frank Dewane, claims negligence in the case of another boy who was sexually abused in 2013 by Little. The diocese was negligent, the lawsuit claims, because the 2011 incident was reported to church ofcials and nothing was done, giving Little access to more young boys and opportunity to abuse again. As a result of the 2013 incident, Little, 74, was arrested Jan. 29 on felony charges of lewd or lascivious behavior on a victim 12-16. Investigators said Little abused the boy several times at a condo Little had access to on Fort Myers Beach. Little was found guilty in July and, in a plea agreement, was sentenced to three days jail time served and 10 years probation, according to court records. He also was ordered to register as a sex offender. The lawsuit says the earlier, 2011 incident occurred on the premises of St. Francis Xavier Church and was reported to the diocese through the church pastor and its school principal. Defendants took no meaningful action to limit Robert Littles access to minors after receiving this report, the lawsuit says. The diocese responded Tuesday at no time either prior to or since the arrest of Little did the diocese or the parish receive any complaint of an assault. In addition, Little had passed a federal and state criminal background check, the diocese said. The parents of the boy in the 2011 incident, Sisto and Isabel Romano of Fort Myers, were outraged. It was very, very upsetting, Isabel Romano said Wednesday. Their attorney, Michael Noone of Goldberg, Racila, DAlessandro & Noone, issued a statement that said in part: The sense of betrayal that a victim feels when later learning that authority gures deny any knowledge of the situation does not only force the person to relive the abuse itself, but causes them to experience it again on an even deeper and more painful level. The diocese quickly released a clarication statement Wednesday, saying the Romanos only reported in 2011 their son felt uncomfortable in the presence of Little. Although encouraged to make a formal report to the Diocese Victim Assistance Coordinator, the couple declined to do so, the clarication said. At no time was there a complaint of an assault. Mr. Little was instructed by the Pastor to have no contact with the family. In addition, the Pastor reported the parents concern to the Sheriffs Ofce who talked with the family and deter mined no further action was warranted. At no time was the family ever told to keep quiet.Isabel Romano disagrees with the diocese version. Our son felt more than uncomfortable and the diocese knew that, she said. It was much more than feeling uncomfortable. Noone said the Romanos reached out and tried to resolve the issue through the church. They looked at the church as an authority gure. They looked at the church for protection. They looked at the church to do the right thing. Were waiting to see if the diocese will step up and come out with the truth and acknowledge what they know is the truth. The parents had for merly been employed at St. Francis Xavier School. The school principal posted a letter to par ents online Wednesday echoing the diocese statements.Diocese knew about abuse, says parents of alleged victimBy MARY WOZNIAK FORT MYERS NEWS-PRESS

Nelson, Sen. Rubio and the president and all should ask their senators the same questions. Are our forces that are on the ground right now in Iraq getting combat pay? Are our forces on the ground in Iraq right now protected by a new status of forces agreement? What direct threat is the United States currently under that you think gives the president the right to make military decisions without Congress? What other countries do you think will help with boots on the ground because 5,000 troops against 30,000 is a no-brainer? Why should it take $500 mil lion of our money to train 5,000 foreign people? And take a year to accomplish? It takes how much money to train our soldiers during boot camp and how long? As an Army guy I know I only made roughly $2,000 for the three months of training I received. If you truly believe this stuff the president is saying, I will do everything in my power to get people to vote against you in the next election. Terrible, Mr. Nelson, terrible!Joe Sargent Port CharlotteCocoplum has become overgrownEditor: The Cocoplum Waterway behind my home is grossly overgrown with vegetation. When I spoke to the city about the matter they told me that it was scheduled to be sprayed in December. Well, I guess now that the city is going to be proactive on code enforcements they should get after themselves. If my lawn was overgrown and I told the city that I was scheduled to mow in December, I guess everything would be OK. As long as I had a schedule. There are times when schedules just do not work. Ive never seen the Cocoplum waterway so overgrown in my 10 years here. I guess the city goes by the philosophy of do as I say, not as I do. Waterway west of Chamberlain Boulevard always seems to be taken care of more than on the east side of Chamberlain. I would guess there are more of the city politicians living on the west side of Chamberlain Boulevard by the waterway.Al Siugzda North PortMany questions about wildlife centerEditor: The article on the wildlife center raises a number of questions. The three principals involved, Grande Harbor, the city council, and the wildlife center, need to state what they knew and when they knew it. Some questions are: When did Grande Harbor buy the 54 acres? When Grande Harbor rst considered purchasing the property did they believe the one-acre parcel housing the wildlife center was not included or did they move ahead and only discover that the purchase would include the center after surveying the property? If they believed the one-acre parcel was not included, the potential project was viable without the center property. Why does not including one acre out of 54 necessitate doubling the height of the condos in order to preserve open space? In 2006, when Grande Harbor applied for a height variance, were the city council and the wildlife center aware that the center was on private property and not public land? If they were aware, why was the problem not addressed at that time? If they were not aware, why were they not? How many people are attracted to Punta Gorda because of the wildlife center? If the wildlife center were to disappear, what would the economic impact be? Did the wildlife center know since 2006 or slightly later they were likely to lose their lease yet they continued to fundraise without disclosing this potential? All parties need to answer these questions.Mike Fortier Punta GordaLoves the bikes in Punta GordaEditor: Gayly painted bicycles with baskets of owers are appear ing all over town.

I love Punta Gorda!Barbara Treadway Punta GordaDont violate height ordinanceEditor: Grande Harbor Group LLC and a member of a local law rm that is often in the Charlotte Sun as a Chamber of Commerce booster of Punta Gorda has decided to hold the Peace River Wildlife Center hostage unless the city violates its longstanding building height ordinance. This has saved Punta Gorda from becoming another Naples or Sarasota. If the developer had a conscience hed donate the land to the Wildlife Center and take a tax write-off. Oops, I forgot, developers and lawyers dont have a conscience. I hope that the city, county or state can declare eminent domain and perhaps seize the Wildlife Center land. Maybe there is some law about mangroves that can be used. In any event, I hope the city will not agree to their request. The minute they do you can bet another greedy developer will come in with another height variance request and claim that precedence has been set.Paul Bankson Punta GordaPublic library a lively placeEditor: I was dismayed to read the article aboutboring North Port and not see the library mentioned in rebuttal. I belong to three different groups at the North Port Library and would join more if not for time restraints.

Not to mention guest speakers throughout the year, various programs of interest and the annual Christmas in the 1890s. The staff does an excellent job choosing programs and deserves praise for their efforts. I could go on, but Im sure you get the idea. Visit your public library.

However, before jumping to conclusions, do you know what a libertarian stands for? Besides, how are the other parties working for you? Wyllie cant be bought, has no fear and answers the tough questions. He has nothing to hide and hides nothing. This is a good man whom I hope to see as Floridas next governor. Please do some research on Adrian Wyllie. I believe you will like what you learn of him.

Grande Harbor, the newly found owner of land leased by the Peace River Wildlife Center, will kindly let the Peace River Wildlife Center stay if the city allows construction of buildings double the height allowed by city code? Really? Im shocked that Grande Harbor would allow this to leak out to the public, much less stand behind it. I hope city leaders see this for what it is, bribery, and steer far away from this.Amy Hasler Deep CreekThanks for support in Komen walkEditor: A big thank you to all of the wonderful people who donated to me on June 6-7 in front of Winn-Dixie on Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte to support my Susan G. Komen three-day, 60-mile fundraising effort. On Sept. 12-14, my daughter and I walked the 60 miles, along with over 1,300 other walkers. Together, the walkers raised over $3 million to knock out breast cancer. I applaud all of you and say, thank you!Carolyn Young Port CharlotteFour-star menu at Fawcett HospitalEditor: The good news is Fawcett Hospital where patients may choose their meals from an exclusive gourmet menu. I was served the most exquisite salmon I have ever had and the next day the cod melted in my mouth. Truly apprehensive that I might insist on staying forever, my primary physician convinced the executive chef to turn over some of his recipes. From now on, my own salmon and cod will be baked, not grilled. The bad news is the miles of empty stores along U.S. 41, a frightening result of our city councils misguided sense of aesthetics. When store owners place items on the sidewalk in front of their stores to attract attention and buyers, our board, in order to make U.S. 41 look tidy, makes the store owners bring the items back inside. No wonder they die like ies.Gunnar Grundberg Port CharlotteFootball takes it on the chin versus weatherOUR POSITION: Wild weather plays games with high school football schedule.In some parts of the country, the saying goes, If you dont like the weather, wait ve minutes. For high school football players, coaches and fans in Southwest Florida, the corollary to that axiom is, If you dont like the weather, wait till October. From preseason kickoff classics in late August to tonights foreboding forecast, thunderstorms have disrupted schoolboy gridiron schedules. Canceled or postponed games and late starts due to stormy weather have muddled schedules, crimped revenues from concession sales, drenched band uniforms and disappointed players geared up to parlay their w eeks of punishing practice into results on gameday. The weather woes started early, as Lemon Bays Aug. 22 preseason game against Barron Collier was canceled due to lightning. The opening week of the season saw DeSotos game canceled by lightning while the same storm system delayed the start of games at Charlotte and Lemon Bay. The Tarpons didnt nish their game until after midnight. The electrical storm produced the rst of many weather-related headlines: Friday Night Lightning, a play on the popular TV series Friday Night Lights. The headline on the story about Port Charlottes long-delayed win read Port Charlotte storms back to beat Mantas. In many cases, the wet conditions have affected play even when lightning hasnt kept teams off the eld. Last Fridays game in Punta Gorda between Charlotte and Venice, played in an off-and-on mist, was marred by 10 fumbles, a muffed punt and blocked punt after a mishandled snap. The headline on the story by Sun Staff Writer Rob Shore, who interviewed players and coaches in a post-game downpour, was Soaking up a win. Shores colleague Zach Miller, 25 miles northeast in Arcadia began his story, Rain wreaked havoc on DeSoto County High Schools homecoming. Its not just the varsity teams who have been sidelined by storms. Wednesdays VeniceCharlotte junior varsity game was canceled by inclement weather, the euphemism schools use for hair-raising electrostatic discharges. On Aug. 29, a lightning strike ve minutes before the scheduled start of the JV opener between Port Charlotte and Lemon Bay delayed the kickoff by an hour and another one at the end of the rst half sent the teams scurrying for cover with the Pirates poised at the Mantas goal line. A third strike 15 minutes later ended the game early, with Port Charlotte claiming the win. As another old saying goes, Everyone talks about the weather but nobody does anything about it. So when it comes to high school football in August and September, is there anything anyone can do about the annual conict between Friday night games and Friday night storms? In many states, prep football is a Saturday afternoon affair. In fact, postponed Friday night games are frequently rescheduled for the following day, when they arent canceled outright or moved into an open week in the teams schedules. Thats an unlikely scenario, to say the least. Friday night is as much about tradition as it is logistics. Besides, theres no guar antee Saturday afternoons offer better long-term meteorological stability. Another obstacle is that Saturdays belong to Pop Warner football. So as we cross our ngers that tonights forecast 80 percent chance of thunderstorms is inaccurate, the best bet is to pack a poncho and hope it only rains. October is coming.

The Sun /Friday, September 26, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINT American beer is in the midst of a global identity crisis. Domestic sales of light beer fell again last year, while imported lagers, spirits and wines climbed. The biggest beer brands in the United States think Budweiser, Miller and Coors are now owned, respectively, by companies in Belgium, England and Canada. The nations two most popular American-owned beer brands? Corona and Modelo. Both are brewed in Mexico. Now comes a new bombshell for ag-waving American beer drinkers: Pabst Brewing, owner of some of the most well-loved, all-American, blue-collar brews in the country, will soon be bought by a Cyprus-based beverage conglomerate that calls itself the biggest independent brewer in Russia. The iconic brand behind Pabst Blue Ribbon, the red-white-and-bluecanned lager founded in Milwaukee before the Civil War, announced late last week that it will be bought by Oasis Beverages, which runs breweries in Moscow, Kazakhstan and Ukraine. Even in a country where beer ads are typically marked by stock cars, soldiers and patriotic horses, few breweries have American credentials as deep as Pabsts. The largest private brewing company in North America, its beers include cheap malts such as Colt 45, Schlitz and Old Milwaukee, as well as regional favorites such as Lone Star (The National Beer of Texas), National Bohemian (a Baltimore classic from the Land of Pleasant Living), Rainier (We Heart Seattle) and Old Style (Chicagos Beer since 1902.) Oasis has voiced no plans to change that. It will partner with TSG Consumer Partners, an American private-equity rm, to buy Pabst for about $700 million from billionaire food-industry investor C. Dean Metropoulos, who bought Pabst for $250 million in 2010. Oasis Chairman Eugene Kashper, a U.S. citizen who lives in New York and will become Pabsts chief executive, said he will keep the company headquarters in Los Angeles. In a statement, he extolled the brewers American virtue, calling Pabst Blue Ribbon the quintessential American brand it represents individualism, egalitarianism and freedom of expression all the things that make this country great. But the announcement of Pabsts sale to Oasis, which brews a bevy of Russian beers as well as soft drinks and juice, was quickly painted as an American betrayal. Fans of PBR unloaded on its Facebook page, with one critic pledging to dump all of what he called the new Communist beer down the drain. Drinkamerican. us, a blog that ridiculed the foreign-owned Budweiser and celebrated Pabsts American heritage, was replaced, briey, on Monday with a large four-letter word. I was actually surprised at how frustrated I was that an American icon was even considering something like this, said David Lauterbach, the New Yorker who started the Drinkamerican blog after Anheuser-Buschs sale to foreign buyers in 2008. That a red, white and blue beer can that so long had symbolized America would consider essentially selling out. Pabst executives have gone on the defensive, issuing a statement poking holes in media reports touting a Russian takeover and saying, Our new colleagues will remain vigilant in staying true to the brands identity. Publicly, Pabst has doubled down on its American roots, posing a can of PBR like Gen. George Patton in a ag-draped tweet saying, Pabst will remain American owned and operated. The brewers purchase, though, is only the latest drop in the long-swirling sea of the nations hyper-globalized beer industry. Miller Brewing became SABMiller, based in London, when it was bought in 2002 by South African Breweries. Coors merged with Canada beer giant Molson in 2005. In 2008, Anheuser-Busch, the St. Louis-based maker of Budweiser that had run ads poking fun at Millers international roots, was bought by InBev, a Belgian-Brazilian beer conglomerate. There are online communities and detailed guides on how to nd out whether a beer is American-made. And drinkers can still buy beers from big American brewers such as Yuengling, based in Pennsylvania, and Samuel Adams, from Massachusetts Boston Beer Co. But American beer drinkers today boast increasingly global palates, analysts at Euromonitor International said, and thats leading them to turn away from light Americana domestics such as Old Style, once advertised as pure brewed in Gods country. Pabst Blue Ribbon has surged among the hipster set, and sales have doubled since 2004, but the broader Pabst brand is still weak in sales. Last year was Pabsts slowest for beer shipments in at least a decade, ac cording to data from Beer Marketers Insights. Pabsts losses are tied to the trend of light domestic lagers losing ground to wines and spirits. Even darker brews are looking better: Americans drank more than 1 billion liters of dark beer last year, making it the nations fastest-growing alcohol. U.S. drinkers are opting against buying from big brewers and instead turning to a growing ood of craft breweries. The country had 2,822 running breweries last year, up 39 percent from 2011, and more than 1,000 new craft breweries are in planning nationwide. The United States is far from losing its status as a brewing heavyweight: About 85 percent of the most popular type of beer Americans drank last year lager was made in the United States. (For brewers, thats less a patriotic strategy than a logistical one: Americans drink more lager than nearly every other country, so brewing it here helps keep shipping costs low.) Not many consumer favorites can boast such a high made-in-America share. So why do some drinkers show such a feeling of loss when an American brand extends overseas? I buy an iPhone even though its made in China, but its designed in California. I buy Fords even though the parts are made globally but still assembled in the U.S. But theres just this historic, iconic value to a can of beer, said Lauterbach, the Drinkamerican blogger. Analysts dont expect the new owners to change too much about Pabsts golden brand. Like Pabst, Oasis has specialized in developing brands tied to city heritage, and its beers command big market share in Moscow and Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan. Instead, they are likely to try to make more money off Pabsts strengths: its cool factor, its roots and the public perception its still linked to the tiny craft breweries it long left behind. Pabst has got a history, its got a heritage, it has a vintage factor, said Amin Alkhatib, an alcoholic beverages industry analyst for Euromonitor in London. Theyre not going to change the brand, what it stands for. Theyre going to push to increase market share, take on those craft-beer prot margins and add a premium factor to the brand. But will Pabst weather the worries about foreign tinkering with an American classic? Benj Steinman, president of the trade publication Beer Marketers Insights, said its just a matter of time. When the Miller and Busch brewers were bought, there was a lot more noise than impact at the time. And Im sure the Pabst folks hope its the same case this time, Steinman said. Drew Harwell is a columnist for The Washington Post.Beer brands are being bought by foreign investors The Washington PostDrew Harwell Last week, the voters of Scotland, in a heavy turnout and from age 16 up, decided not to disunite what has been arguably one of the most successful and benecial nations over the last 307 years, the necessarily clunkily named United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It was a relatively closerun thing: 45 percent voted for an independent Scotland, just 383,000 fewer than voted for Scotland to remain part of the now-not-necessary-tobe-renamed UK. Had Queen Elizabeth II not allowed herself to be overheard telling a churchside crowd that Scottish voters should think very carefully about the issue, the result might have been closer, as polling suggested it would be. Actually, something like panic broke out when, days before, a single poll showed the independence side ahead. The leaders of the three UK parties Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron, Labours Ed Miliband and Liberal Democrat Nick Clegg scampered north to Scotland and promised to devolve even more powers from the UK parliament in Westminster to the Scottish Parliament established by Tony Blairs Labour government in 1999. When the Scottish Nationalist party won a majority in that parliament in 2011, First Minister Alex Salmond immediately pushed for the referendum. With rules that stacked the deck: 16-year-olds could vote, but Scots outside Scotland, including those in the British military, could not. Scotlands grievance may have been based in nostalgia for Braveheart and the poetry of Bobby Burns. But it was also rooted in opposition to a central government that locals deemed hostile something like Texas in President Obamas America or New York in George W. Bushs. Scotlands once world-dominating heavy industries shipbuilding, steel were shut down by the 1980s, and many blamed Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Once closely divided between the two major UK parties, Scotland elected exactly one Conservative MP to Parliament in 2010, versus 41 Labourites, 11 Lib Dems and six Scottish Nats. Salmond painted an alluring picture of an independent Scotland, blessed with North Sea oil wealth and expanding its already large welfare state. But North Sea production is falling and, as Thatcher said, the problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples money. Nonetheless, Scotland is not the only region that has been eyeing secession. In Spains Catalonia, centered on Barcelona, the regional parliament is calling for a secession referendum which Madrid says is unconstitutional. Italys Veneto region, like Catalonia and unlike Scotland, more prosperous than its country at large, has supported the secession-minded Northern League. Americans have a hard time understanding the secessionist impulse. Our own experience with secession resulted in a war that took 600,000 lives in a nation of 38 million. The equivalent death toll today would be 5 million. And our federal system allows Americans to vote with their feet for states with agreeable public policies. In 1970, my home state of Michigan had 9 million people. In 2010 it had 10 million. In 1970, Texas had 11 million people, and 25 million in 2010. The United Kingdom has a harder time devolving power and decentralizing public policy because 85 percent of its people live in England. At 7 a.m. the morning after the Scottish referendums paper ballots were counted, Cameron emerged from No. 10 Downing Street and promised, Just as Scotland will vote separately in the Scottish Parliament on their issues of tax, spending and welfare, so too England, as well as Wales and Northern Ireland, should be able to vote on these issues. That raised the issue dubbed the West Lothian question, in 1977 by Tam Dalyell, a left-wing Scottish Labour MP: How is it fair to let Scottish MPs vote on policies affecting England when English MPs cant vote on the same policies affecting Scotland? Barring Scottish MPs from voting on England-only issues might make it impossible for Labour to effectively govern the UK. In the current Parliament, Conservatives hold a solid majority of English seats, but theyre a minority in the whole Parliament, forced to govern in coalition with the Liberal Democrats. Could a Scottish Labour MP ever again wield the power that Gordon Brown did as Chancellor of the Exchequer and then prime minister over a 13-year span? Somehow I suspect the British will muddle through. But the lesson seems to be that, in a decentralizing age, its hard to get the right balance between national unity and regional autonomy.

Our Town Page 10 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, September 26, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT Cannabis for sale could adorn the windows of marijuana dispensaries in North Port in the future, but city commissioners agreed at a Thursday workshop that a future ordinance for the sale and use of medical marijuana will require restrictions. The commission held its rst hearing to discuss the use and dispensing of medical marijuana in the city in what Mark Moriarty, the new city attorney, referred to as a meeting to check the temperature of the commission. Lets start kicking it around and see where you want to go with it, Moriarty said. On Nov. 4, Florida residents will have the opportunity to adopt Amendment 2, a proposal to allow for the sale and use of a much broader range of forms of marijuana in Florida if recommended by a phy sician. On June 6, 2014, Gov. Rick Scott passed the Compassionate Medical Cannabis Act of 2014, which legalized a mild strain of cannabis known as Charlottes Web. The strain is used for medical patients, including children, who suffer from problems such as muscle spasms, epileptic attacks or have been diagnosed with cancer. It is named after a 7-year-old girl from Colorado, Charlotte Fiji, who uses marijuana to help control seizures caused by Davet syndrome, a type of epilepsy triggered by hot temperatures. Commissioners unanimously agreed to not take the prospect of medical marijuana entering the community completely off the table, but there was less cer tainty in how exactly the city would allow the use and dispensing of it. Vice Mayor Rhonda DiFranco and Commissioner Linda Yates both agreed that public settings are an issue when allowing for the use of marijuana. What our goal is here is to make sure we are protecting the community, Yates said. Both commissioners cited problems, like second-hand smoke affecting peoples health and drug tests for employment, and marijuana use near schools and parks where children could be affected. DiFranco said she was dead set against growing marijuana inside the city limits. I dont think we want that reputation, DiFranco said. Yates recommended that a moratorium, or temporary postponement, might work to give the city more time to adopt an ordinance. Moriarty said a oneyear moratorium is a possibility. Yates said she liked the guidelines created by the Winter Park Planning and Zoning Board for Winter Park, Fla., that passed an ordinance for medical marijuana use and dispensaries on Sept. 2. It provides restrictions, like a marijuana dispensary must be at least 1,000 feet from a school or residence and a dispensary may only be run and operated by a physician. Vanessa Carusone, executive director for the North Port Alliance for Substance Abuse and Prevention, commented about the marketing that an ordinance allowing for medical marijuana in the community might create. When you are putting up dispensaries, keep in mind marketing, Carusone said. What will you be able to see from the roadways? City Manager Jonathan Lewis said marketing is not a huge concern at the moment, because the ordinance is still being created and in the beginning stages. Lewis said the citys Planning and Zoning Board will do further research, and the second hearing to discuss medical marijuana in the city will be discussed at the next City Commission workshop on Oct. 21.

Source: City of Winter Park Planning and Zoning Board The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission continues to track a large bloom of toxic red tide algae north of Clearwater and Tampa. But that doesnt mean local offshore waters are algae free. The FWC reported Wednesday blooms of red tide Karenia brevis extending ve to 35 miles offshore from Citrus County north to Franklin County in the Panhandle. Fish kills and respiratory irritation have also been reported in the bloom areas. While red tide is staying north and is not being detected in Sarasota nor Charlotte waters, the FWC reports another algae species Trichodesmium, known as sea sawdust has been blooming in patches one to ve miles offshore from Clearwater south to Sanibel. Unlike red tide algae, the Trichodesmium algae in Florida waters do not lead to sh kills nor respiratory problems for humans. However, the algae can precede the appearance of red tide. Ironically, Trichodesmium blooms are often seen prior to a Florida red tide bloom, Bryan Fluech wrote in a post on the University of Florida Sea Grant website at seagrant. ifas.u.edu. Alina Corcoran, a FWC researcher with the Harmful Algal Bloom Program, said she wouldnt call Trichodesmium a precursor of red tide, but she said the two algae species can compete in the same waters for nutrients. Algae species can pull nitrogen from the water, but the Trichodesmium can also draw nitrogen gas in the air, Corcoran said, describing the process as nitrogen xation. The process is limited by the amount of iron available to it. Trichodesmium generally blooms annually, particularly in May and September, the months when Sahara Desert dust typically blows across the Atlantic Ocean into Florida. The dust often contains the iron needed to trigger Trichodesmium blooms. According to the FWC website at myfwc.com, when the algae bloom, it appears brown when healthy, green when it starts to decay, pink or red when pigments leak out of the cells, and white after pigments decay. Decaying Trichodesmium blooms can also emit a sweet smell similar to freshly cut hay. The rst reports of Trichodesmium date back to the 1700s when Capt. James Cook of the British Royal Navy described large, brown blooms resembling sandbars. FWC ofcials encourage people to call 866-300-9399 at any time from anywhere in Florida to hear a recording about red tide conditions throughout the state. Anyone who discovers diseased, abnormalities or dead sh from red tide or any other causes is asked to call 800-636-0511. Callers will be asked to leave a detailed report and contact information on the recorded message. FWC biologists will contact callers, generally the following workday, if more information is needed.Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgThats algae offshore, not red tideBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER PROVIDED BY THE FLORIDA FISH AND WILDLIFE CONSERVATION COMMISSIONState researchers recently photographed this bloom of algae oshore, but it is not the toxic red tide Karenia brevis algae.

Our Town Page 12 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, September 26, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE for countywide services. But some residents pointed out that, even though the tax rate remains the same, they will be paying more in property taxes because the value of their homes has gone up. Property taxable values across Charlotte County increased by 4.45 percent this past year. As a result, the county is projected to collect $5 million more in property taxes next year than in 2014. I couldnt resist the opportunity to come by, as a conservative Republican, and make a pitch for a lower tax rate. Thats what we do, resident Ron Wozniak said at Wednesdays hearing. I think you still need to manage [the budget] real hard. Keep cutting things out. Don Monroe, a candidate for District 4 commissioner in the upcoming general election, criticized the county for creating a bloated budget for big government. Its my opinion that the Charlotte County government has assumed the misguided role of General Development Corporation, building a countywide corporation on the backs of its citizens, said Monroe, referring to the countys original developer. That spirit of General Development has never left Charlotte County. Monroe also commented on the 1 percent sales tax proposal, saying the revenue should be used to relieve the tax burden on citizens by paying for past projects, instead of starting new ones. That money could be spent to reduce the debt, rather than produce more debt, Monroe said. Scott Andrichak, a frequent critic of county operations, questioned why next years budget still has $3 million from the 2002 local option sales tax referendum that has not been spent.You say this money is so urgently needed, and yet you have $3 million sitting in a fund collected from a dozen years ago, he said. To me, this is a slush fund. County Administrator Ray Sandrock later addressed the sales tax question, explaining that the $3 million contained in the 2015 budget was actually collected in 2008. He also recommended to commissioners that this money be directed toward the current $17.4 million Winchester Boulevard south extension project.Commissioner Chris Constance also responded to resident concerns, saying county spending has not kept pace with rising costs. We have held the line, which has been a very, very hard thing to do because ination is a real factor. Yet we have maintained the line on tax rates for the last six years, Constance said. But were eating into our reserves. The spending plan for the 2015 scal year, which begins Oct. 1, includes a $592 million net budget, which does not include transfer funds or $61.5 million in reserves. Of the nearly $5 million in additional property tax revenue expected next year, $1.88 million is budgeted for the employee health benets reserve fund and $1.46 million for the Sheriffs Ofce. Meanwhile, ofcials noted the countys level of debt has been reduced 14 percent over the last four years, with $287 million in debt service projected in 2015. Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch summed up that the no-frills budget reects the scal nature of commissioners. Were all pretty frugal, Deutsch said. You ought to see us ght over a cookie.Email: email@example.comINCREASEFROM PAGE 1An extra $2.2 million alloted for salaries will, in part, allow the sheriff to address pay compression issues. Just as an example, we might have a new deputy making about the same as one thats been here five years, Prummell said. We came up with a formula to make pay more fair. And, when the new fiscal year begins Oct. 1, 15 minutes will be added to each shift for all sworn law enforcement and corrections personnel, from lieutenants down. The sheriff said this will allow for adequate pass time a time for staff going off-duty to give information to workers on the next shift. Former sheriff Bill Cameron did away with the 15 extra minutes about five years ago. Ive wanted to add it back, Prummell said. Much of the funds shifted around in the 2014-15 budget reflect the sheriffs need to accommodate a rising inmate population at the Charlotte County Jail, which reached a record high last month. Staff have been stockpiling certain items, like jail supplies, so they could be cut from this budget. This allows for an additional $175,000 for prison transport services (up from $150,000 to $325,000), and an increase in funds for other added costs associated with more inmates, like healthcare services, for example. Things are tight here and there, Prummell said. But were cool with (the overall budget).Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgWere all pretty frugal. You ought to see us ght over a cookie. Stephen R. Deutsch, Charlotte County commissioner SHERIFFFROM PAGE 1 as a Tier II project, which means it only gets done if there is enough sales tax revenue left over after the high-priority undertakings are completed. But despite its secondary status, the 50-meterby-25-yard aquatic center with diving facilities would meet a primary need. Currently, there is no competitive pool in Charlotte County, said Tommy Scott, director of Community Services for the county. This would be a regional draw for meets. Also, its our full intent for Port Charlotte High School to use this as its home pool. In addition, the Olympic-size pool, otherwise referred to as long course, would provide opportunities for collegiate training during the winter months. In serving as a training site as well as hosting swim tournaments, the facility would generate an ongoing source of revenue. Those meets are now bypassing Charlotte County because we dont have a competitive pool, he said. Meanwhile, the planned single-story, 30,000-square-foot recreation center would feature a gymnasium, tness center, multi-purpose rooms, administrative ofces and community garden. Together, they would ll a niche in the community by providing residents with centrally located recreational opportunities, Scott said. Theres no recreation center to support the heart of Charlotte County, where most people live, he said. Also, administrative ofces for the Community Services Department are now spread out over several locations. The rec center would allow these ofces to be consolidated into a single headquar ters, Scott said, resulting in a signicant cost savings for the county. However, in addition to the $12.6 million price tag for both projects, the facilities would require annual operating costs of $653,211. While North Charlotte Regional Park is nearly at full build-out, a recreation center is needed to complete the parks master plan. Scott said the recreation and aquatic center not only would create more park activity, but also complement the existing baseball and soccer elds. With the Snowbird Baseball Classic already an entrenched tradition, along with various soccer tournaments, Scott said the aquatic center would help support other events in the park. This will help tie it all together for a regional park concept, he said. The new facilities also would complete the vision initially made possible by the local option sales tax. The park itself was created with $3.5 million from the sales tax extension approved in 1998. Then, the 2002 extension provided $4.3 million to develop the baseball and soccer elds. This year, the salestax referendum will ask voters if they support an extension of the 1 percent sales tax for the next six years, raising an estimated $108 million in total. The current extension ends Dec. 31.A CLOSER GLANCE What: North Charlotte Regional Park recreation center and pool Cost: $12.6 million Need: Build a 50-meter-by-25yard competitive aquatic center with diving facilities; and a 30,000-square-foot recreation center with gymnasium, fitness center, multi-purpose rooms, administrative offices and community garden. PARKFROM PAGE 1 about 30,000 Americans with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis more commonly known simply as ALS or Lou Gehrigs disease. Saturday, the Last Chance Saloon at 25354 East Marion Ave. is hosting a fundraising event for ALS awareness. In addition to an Ice Bucket Challenge, there will be food, door prizes, a dart tournament, a pool tournament, music and rafes. Proceeds will go to the ALS Association Florida Chapter and the Lee Memorial Health Systems ALS Clinic in Fort Myers the closest ALS clinic, which is where George Scott received much of his care. Its a chance to give back because they helped us so much, said daughter Karen Scott, who now manages the bar. There are people right here in this community who are affected (by ALS), so we wanted to do something. George Scott was diagnosed with the progressive neurodegenerative disease in 2005. He started slurring his words often, Karen Scott recalled, noting that her Scottish father enjoyed a good scotch whiskey. I thought, Damn, hes drinking a lot. But he said he wasnt. So I nally told him he needed to ask someone what was going on. After several doctor visits, George Scott learned he had bulbar onset ALS the disease was affecting his speech before anything else, a rarity. Other muscles began to deteriorate. His left side got weaker his leg was next to go, and then his arm, Karen Scott said. Its hard to put a time frame on what happened when, but then he had to get around with a walker, and eventually he wasnt able to drive anymore. Karen Scott is an accountant at Flagship Marine in Punta Gorda, but she is able to take off as needed to help care for her father. She also keeps an eye on the bar, though Scottie still keeps the books and does payroll from home. Dads always been witty and clever and a people-person, Karen Scott said. He loves that bar and misses it. Through handwritten notes, George Scott explained to a reporter how much history is behind the place: I took over operating the bar the last two weeks of December 1983, and it became ofcial Jan. 4, 1984. We now have the children and, in some cases, the grandchildren to the original customers ... We stayed open during (Hurricane) Charley we serve all our beer on ice, thats why we were able to stay open. George Scott noted that he had once had a Scottish accent that was a bit messed up with some southern American mixed in, since one of his former wives was from South Carolina. He also noted that being a good storyteller is a key to successfully keeping a local bar open for over three decades. The patrons and bar tenders at Scotties Last Chance Saloon miss seeing him around. When Scottie was good to go, hed walk in this bar and buy everyone a beer, said Rick Piquette, who lives around the corner and has been a customer and friend since Day 1. And Ive never seen him mad. Everyone who knows him misses him. Rachael Gibbs, 26, said she met George Scott when she was 13, and he helped keep her in school and stay out of trouble. Gibbs is now a bartender at the saloon. Hes like my daddy, Gibbs said. If it wasnt for Scottie, I wouldnt be here ...

Page 2 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, September 26, 2014 NATIONAL NEWS ST. LOUIS (AP) The Missouri police chief whose ofcer fatally shot an unarmed 18-year-old last month released a video Thursday apologizing to the family and the community, acknowledging that Michael Browns body remained in the street for too long after he was killed. The video featuring Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson was released by a public relations agency on the same day Browns parents were in Washington pressing for a full federal investigation. A state grand jury is considering whether criminal charges are warranted, but a decision isnt expected for several weeks. Brown was unarmed when he was fatally shot Aug. 9 during a confrontation with Ofcer Darren Wilson, and his body remained in the street for more than four hours. At the time, police said they needed the time to gather evidence from the street, Caneld Drive, which is lined with apartment buildings. But it was just too long and Im truly sorry for that, Jackson, dressed casually in a red polo shirt instead of his police uniform, said on the video. Please know that the investigating ofcers meant no disrespect to the Brown family, to the AfricanAmerican community or the people of Caneld (Drive). They were simply trying to do their jobs. To the Brown family, Jackson said: Im truly sorry for the loss of your son. Browns parents declined comment when told about Jacksons video during a news conference with civil rights leaders at the National Press Club. Their attor ney later said they hadnt heard about the video but would review it. The shooting of Brown, who was black, by the white police ofcer sparked racial unrest and numerous protests in Ferguson, including some that turned violent and involved looting. Some residents and civil rights activists have said ofcers were overly aggressive, noting their use of tear gas and military-style vehicles and gear. The responding ofcers included Ferguson police and St. Louis County police. In the video, Jackson also apologized to any peaceful protesters who felt their rights were violated. He also acknowledged that pain and mistrust existed between the AfricanAmerican community and police. It is clear that we have much work to do, Jackson said. The U.S. Department of Justice is looking into possible civil rights violations. On Wednesday, investigators with the agencys Civil Rights Division hosted a meeting in Ferguson to allow residents to express concerns about police. About 300 people attended the meeting, including many who met individually with investigators. Many said afterward that they shared stories of police brutality and harassment. Wilson has been on leave since the shooting.Ferguson chief apologizes in video to Brown family AP PHOTOIn this frame grab provided Thursday by Devin James Group is Ferguson, Mo., Police Chief Tom Jackson during a video apology to the community of Ferguson and the family of Michael Brown. WASHINGTON (AP) Tens of thousands of young families caught crossing the border illegally earlier this year subsequently failed to meet with federal immigration agents, as they were instructed, the Homeland Security Department has acknowledged privately. An ofcial with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement revealed that about 70 percent of immigrant families the Obama administration had released into the U.S. never showed up weeks later for follow-up appointments. The ICE ofcial made the disclosure in a condential meeting at its Washington headquar ters with immigration advocates participating in a federal working group on detention and enforcement policies. The Associated Press obtained an audio recording of Wednesdays meeting and separately interviewed participants. On the recording obtained by the AP, the government did not specify the total number of families released into the U.S. since October. Since only a few hundred families have already been returned to their home countries and limited U.S. detention facilities can house only about 1,200 family members, the 70 percent gure suggests the government released roughly 41,000 members of immigrant families who subsequently failed to appear at federal immigration ofces. The ofcial, who was not identied by name on the recording obtained by the AP, also said nal deportation had been ordered for at least 860 people traveling as families caught at the border since May but only 14 people had reported as ordered. In a statement, ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen did not respond to questions from the AP about the newly disclosed gures. Instead, she said the agency was committed to increasing its capacity to detain and quickly deport families who crossed the border illegally. The AP reported in June that the administration would not say publicly how many immigrant families from Central America caught crossing into the U.S. it had released in recent months or how many of those subsequently reported back to the government after 15 days as directed. The AP noted that senior U.S. ofcials directly familiar with the issue, including at the Homeland Security Department and White House, had dodged the answer on at least seven occasions over two weeks, alternately saying that they did not know the gure or didnt have it immediately at hand. The Homeland Security Departments public affairs ofce during the same period did not answer roughly a dozen requests for the gures.US: Immigrant families fail toreport to agents CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Investigators still have no idea whatsoever where a missing University of Virginia student might be despite the arrest of a fugitive who was seen walking off with her, Charlottesvilles police chief said Thursday. The search for Hannah Graham has expanded to rural areas outside the college town of 40,000, Chief Timothy Longo said. Meanwhile, Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr. agreed to be escorted to Virginia after eeing to Texas, where he was arrested while camping out on a beach. Matthew, a 32-year-old operating room technician at the universitys hospital, is charged with abduction with intent to dele the 18-year-old sophomore, and should be back in Charlottesville by Saturday, Longo said. Matthew allegedly sped away after being questioned by police in Grahams disappearance. He made it as far as the Texas beach town of Gilchrist, 1,260 miles from home and about a seven-hour drive from the border. Authorities had been concerned he would try to cross into Mexico, according to a person familiar with the search who spoke with The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the person isnt authorized to publicly discuss the investigation. We seem to be at the end of the road, said Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trochesset. For us, its not strange that someone like that would be arrested here. The 6-foot-2, 270-pound former college football player appeared in a very brief extradition hearing in Galveston, where he didnt speak other than to acknowledge his signature. He was caught the day before when a deputy responding to a suspicious person report found his tent and car. Matthew refused to identify himself, but the plates gave him away. Graham went missing Sept. 13, after a night of partying in the college town, and search efforts initially focused on Charlottesville. While investigators consider more than 1,500 tips theyve received, the search has moved on to surrounding Albemarle County, which is dotted with rolling hills, farms and vineyards. Longo appealed to landowners to search their properties, and to real estate agents to check on vacant houses. We still have no idea whatsoever where she is, despite our best efforts, Longo said. We have an obligation to bring her home, one way or the other. Thats what we promised to do. Police said they had probable cause to support the charge against Matthew after twice searching his apartment and gathering evidence they have not described. Police said a crime lab is testing clothing they recovered through search warrants, but they havent said whose clothing that was. Dele, in a legal context, means sexually molest. Its a crime thats much easier to charge than it is to prove, said Steve Benjamin, past president of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. The fact that someone is the last person to have been in Hannahs company proves that the defendant had the opportunity to abduct, but it proves not much more. The great unknown here is what was found in the vehicle and the apartment, whether there was any item of hers found that becomes important circumstantial evidence, Benjamin added.Chief: No lead on missing Virginia student AP PHOTOThis undated image provided by the Galveston County Sheris Oce shows a booking photo of Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr. | NATIONAL NEWS BRIEFSNavajo to get $554M in settlement with USFLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) The Navajo Nation is poised to receive $554 million from the federal government over mismanagement of tribal resources in the largest settlement of its kind for an American Indian tribe. Much of the land on the 27,000-square-mile reservation has been leased for things like farming, grazing, oil and gas development, mining and housing.

The quake had a preliminary magnitude of 6.2, and hit at 9:51 a.m. The epicenter was about 80 miles northwest of the states largest city, where it was strongly felt and lingered for at least a minute, the Alaska Earthquake Center said. Staffers at the Nesbett Courthouse in downtown Anchorage felt the shaking in their ofce on the top oor of the six-story building. My computer tower fell off my desk, said judicial assistant Ellen Bozzini. Everyone stood in door ways until an evacuation was ordered, then they took the stairs outside where they waited for about 20 minutes before being allowed back in.

James Comey told reporters at FBI headquarters that U.S. ofcials are in talks with the two companies. He accused the companies of letting people put themselves beyond the laws reach. Comey cited child-kidnapping and terrorism cases as two examples of situations where quick access by authorities to information on cellphones can save lives. Comey did not cite specic past cases that would have been more difcult for the FBI to investigate under the new policies, which only involve physical access to a suspects or victims phone when the owner is unable or unwilling to unlock it for authorities. An FBI spokesman Thursday was not able to immediately clarify Comeys remarks.Abandoned truck dripping rancid chicken juiceMISSOULA, Mont. (AP) A truck dripping rancid juices from thousands of pounds of rotting chicken sat in the heat attracting ies Thursday at a western Montana truck stop, where an Idaho trucking company employee abandoned it at least three days earlier. The driver left the trailer containing approximately 37,000 pounds of frozen chicken near the Flying J Truck Stop west of Missoula after the company refused his requests for more money, authorities said. The chicken was worth $80,000. The truck was discovered Tuesday. It may have been left there more than a month ago, Nampa, Idaho, police Sgt. Joe Ramirez said. Law enforcement ofcers are searching for the driver, 42-year-old Christopher L. Hall, who had been wanted for a parole violation and now faces a possible theft charge, Ramirez said. Hall picked up the trailer in Springdale, Ark., on Aug. 20 and was supposed to deliver it to Kent, Wash., the next day. Hall reportedly texted Dixie River Freight Inc. several times, saying he needed more money. When the company refused to pay him until he delivered the load, he apparently abandoned the trailer at the truck stop, according to police in Nampa. The trailers refrigerator apparently continued running until the fuel ran out, Ramirez said.3 from FDNY who worked at ground zero die in 1 dayNEW YORK (AP) Three retired reghters who worked at ground zero have died on the same day from cancer, an illness that many fear might be connected to toxic World Trade Center dust released on Sept. 11, re ofcials said Thursday.

That changed Thursday. Little, 74, was sentenced to three consecutive terms of life in prison without parole for murdering three women in the late 1980s during the crack cocaine scourge, when several serial killers prowled the streets of South Los Angeles and preyed on drug users and prostitutes. Little shouted out in court during his sentencing hearing that he didnt commit the killings and said he hoped for a new trial. His lawyer has led a notice of appeal. Little lured his victims with dope and then beat them and strangled them for his sexual pleasure, prosecutors said. He dumped their half-naked bodies in garbage. He has never shown any empathy or remorse, but instead has continued to perpetuate his cycle of violence and terror, Deputy District Attorney Beth Silverman wrote in court papers calling for the three consecutive life terms.
The Sun /Friday, September 26, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 3 PLEASE GIVE BLOOD HELP SAVE LIVES WORLD NEWS UNITED NATIONS (AP) Irans president told the U.N. General Assembly Thursday that moderate leaders in the Middle East must spearhead the ght against extremists, warning that their goal of destroying civilization is generating anti-Muslim hatred and creating fertile ground for further intervention of foreign forces in the region. Hassan Rouhani said leaders who are neither antinor pro-Western and know the pain the region is experiencing can win the condence of people in their countries and establish the strongest national and international coalitions against violence. And if other nations wish to take action against terrorism, they must come to their support, he said. Rouhani warned that if countries that have joined the U.S.-led coalition do so to continue their hegemony in the region, they would make a strategic mistake. This appeared to be directed to the monarchies that are part of the more than 50-nation coalition Saudi Arabia, Jordan, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Qatar. I warn that if we do not muster all our strengths against extremism and violence today, and fail to entrust the job to the people in the region who can deliver, tomorrow the world will be safe for no one, Rouhani said. In a wide-ranging speech, he also said a nuclear agreement is possible before the November deadline if the West wants a deal and shows exibility. He said an agreement would create a new day for cooperation in the region and internationally, including on combating violence and extremism. Rouhani said many parts of the Middle East are currently burning in re of extremism and radicalism and expressed deep regret that terrorism has become globalized. Terrorism is now spreading to other parts of the world like a contagious disease and has become a threat from New York to Mosul, from Damascus to Baghdad, from the easternmost to the westernmost parts of the world, from al-Qaida to Daesh, the Iranian leader said, using the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State extremist group. He said extremists come to the Middle East from around the world with a single ideology, violence and extremism. The extremists of the world have found each other and have put out the call: extremists of the world unite, Rouhani said. But are we united against the extremists? Rouhani said all countries that founded and supported the terrorist groups must acknowledge that their errors have led to extremism and apologize not only to the past generation but to the next generation. He also called for a global ght against the underlying causes of terrorism. Terrorism germinates in poverty, unemploy ment, discrimination, humiliation and injustice, Rouhani said. And it grows in the culture of violence. To uproot extremism, we must spread justice and development and disallow the distor tion of divine teachings to justify brutality and cruelty.Rouhani: Extremists want to destroy civilization AP PHOTOPresident Hassan Rouhani, of Iran, addresses the 69th session of the United Nations General Assembly, at U.N. headquarters, Thursday. | WORLD NEWS BRIEFS345 rescued people refuse to leave Cypriot shipLIMASSOL, Cyprus (AP) A cruise line ofcial says more than 300 people, apparent refugees eeing from Syria, are refusing to disembark from a cruise ship that rescued them from a small boat stranded off Cyprus. Salamis Cruise Lines Managing Director Kikis Vasiliou told reporters at the east Mediterranean islands main port of Limassol Thursday that the people are insisting that they be taken to Italy instead. Cypriot ofcials said that the 345 people, including 52 children, were to be taken to a reception center near the capital Nicosia where they would be given shelter and medical attention until authorities determine what will happen to them.

Gunmen with the groups newly declared police force seized Samira Salih al-Nuaimi last week in a northeastern district of Mosul while she was home with her husband and three children, two people with direct knowledge of the incident told The Associated Press on Thursday. Al-Nuaimi was taken to a secret location. After about ve days, the family was called by the morgue to retrieve her corpse, which bore signs of torture, the two people said, speaking on condition of anonymity because of fears for their safety. According to the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq, her arrest was allegedly connected to Facebook messages she posted that were critical of the militants destruction of religious sites in Mosul.US-led strikes hit IS-held oil sites in SyriaBEIRUT (AP) U.S.-led airstrikes targeted Syrian oil installations held by the extremist Islamic State group overnight and early Thursday, killing at least 19 people as more families of militants left their key stronghold, fearing further raids, activists said. The strikes aimed to knock out one of the militants main revenue streams black market oil sales that the U.S. says earn up to $2 million a day for the group. That funding, along with a further estimated $1 million a day from other smuggling, theft and extortion, has been crucial in enabling the extremists to overrun much of Syria and neighboring Iraq. On the ground, Syrias civil war raged on unabated, with government forces taking back an important industrial area near Damascus from the rebels, according to Syrian activists and state media.Ukraine leader sure that peace is on the wayKIEV, Ukraine (AP) Ukraines leader said Thursday that the most dangerous part of the war has passed and that the conict with pro-Russia separatists in the countrys east is on the wane.

Cameron was caught on microphone saying that the head of state purred down the line when he called her following the defeat for the independence campaign. The comments, made on a visit to New York, were a breach of protocol because communications between the prime minister and the queen are traditionally kept private. Im very embarrassed by this. Im extremely sorry about it, Cameron told British reporters who traveled to New York, in comments conrmed by his ofce in London Thursday. It was a private conversation, but clearly a private conversation that I shouldnt have had and wont have again. My ofce has already been in touch with the palace to make that clear and I will do so as well. The lapse was caught on a pooled television camera recording a visit to Bloomberg LPs headquarters in New York two days ago. The denition of relief is being the prime minister of the United Kingdom and ringing the queen and say ing Its all right, its OK.

Many scientists say direct reprogramming is a promising new approach to regenerative medicine a eld dedicated to curing disease by helping the body repair and regrow its own tissues. In recent years, scientists have used the method to grow new brain cells, liver cells, pancreatic tissue and parts of the inner ear responsible for hearing loss. Researchers hope to one day develop drugs that will enable patients bodies to repair their own damaged organs, much the way a salamander can regrow its own heart and a python can double the size of its liver. At UT Southwesterns new Hamon Center for Regenerative Science and Medicine, researchers are focused on cultivating heart and nerve cells. The center, led by biologist Eric Olson, opened in May with a $10 million gift from the Hamon Charitable Foundation. Its areas of research include stem cells as well as direct reprogramming. Olson hopes the center will help UT Southwestern attract top college graduates from around the U.S. Regenerative biology is one of the most popular majors, he says. The center will give us a new tool to recruit some of the best students to Dallas. Olsons career-long interest in how a single cell develops into the trillions that make up the human body led to his labs current work. I wanted to under stand how specialized cells were formed and how large sets of genes turned on and off during development, he said. After pondering what cell type to focus on, Olson settled on muscle cells, because muscles make up 40 percent of our body mass and turn on thousands of genes as they develop. The idea was that a deep understanding of one particular system could be applied more widely. It could also help scientists gain insight into how diseases develop when errors creep into the process. Over the years, Olsons lab has uncovered several of the major genes that control muscle development. Recent work from his lab has led to a promising approach to treating Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a congenital disease that causes muscles to progressively weaken and degenerate. In the centers inaugural publication this month in the journal Science, Olson and his colleagues outlined a way to edit the gene abnor malities responsible for the disorder in a mouse and rectify the bodys ability to grow healthy muscle.CELLSFROM PAGE 1 Nusra Front called the Khorasan Group, which Washington says poses a direct and imminent threat to U.S. and Western interests. On Thursday, FBI director James Comey acknowledged that the U.S. did not have precise intelligence on where or when the group might attack, adding that there was no indication the airstrikes had disrupted the cells plots. Its hard to say whether thats tomorrow, three weeks from now or three months from now. But its the kind of threat you have to operate under the assumption that it is tomorrow, Comey told reporters in Washington. U.S. intelligence ofcials say the group has been trying to perfect a non-metallic bomb that can get past airport security and be used to blow up an airplane in ight. But many in the Syrian opposition are skeptical of the U.S. claims and believe the airstrikes simply aimed to hurt the Nusra Front and by extension the anti-Assad uprising. The Khorasan Group a name given the cell by American ofcials was unheard of publicly less than a month ago. I dont think its ever been a separate group on the ground, said Aymenn al-Tamimi, an expert on Syrian and Iraqi militants. I think the problem for the U.S. is that in wanting to target Nusra, theres still this problem that Nusra has local support and there are still many rebel groups that work with Nusra. While U.S. and Western ofcials view both the Islamic State group and the Nusra Front as a threat, on the ground, Syrians make a huge distinction between the two despite their shared history. The Nusra Front was created with nancing, manpower and military hardware provided by the Islamic State group when the Islamic extremists were still known merely as the Islamic State in Iraq. The Nusra Front and its patron eventually had a falling out in 2013 for ideological as well as strategic reasons. The Nusra Front, while loyal to al-Qaida, has cooperated with other Syrian rebel factions in the ght to oust Assad. The Islamic State group, on the other hand, focused not on Assad but rather on creating its version of a medieval Islamic state and was happy to battle all comers, government and rebels, to achieve that goal.ISLAMICFROM PAGE 1 and make travel more affordable. Drivers are left with a few extra dollars in their pockets. And consumers grow condent enough to make other purchases, perhaps even a big-ticket item. Consumer spending is 70 percent of the U.S. economy. Aidan Obrecht, a 20-year-old community college student from Boothwyn, Pa., said gas in his area has fallen 10 to 20 cents over the past couple of weeks. He paid $3.27 a gallon Thursday to ll up his Ford Taurus on his way to work at a CVS pharmacy. Im living paycheck to paycheck, so its nice to be able to save, he said. Even if its $5 or $10 extra (after a ll-up), it adds up over the long run. Fall is when reners are allowed to switch to a cheaper blend of gasoline for the cooler months, and driving demand declines after summer vacations have ended. Renery problems or hurricanes can halt the typical autumn price decline temporarily by reducing gasoline production. For example, a reported outage at a renery in Eastern Canada that supplies the Northeast with gasoline is likely to push the price at the pump slightly higher in some markets over the next few days. But by late October prices are usually well on their way lower. Last year, the national average fell 28 cents per gallon between Sept. 1 and Dec. 31. This year, gasoline had a head start. It entered September at its lowest level for the beginning of the month in four years and the price of crude oil was rapidly heading lower. The drop in global crude oil prices is a surprise. Despite increasing violence and turmoil in the Middle East, the worlds most important oil-producing region, the global price of oil has fallen to $97 a barrel, close to its lowest level in more than two years. Thats partly because new technology has allowed U.S. drillers to consistently increase production from elds in North Dakota and Texas, adding to global supplies. At the same time, world demand is not growing as much as anticipated because of slower economic growth in China and Europe. The increase in domestic supplies is also helping avoid dramatic spikes in gasoline prices, which economists say is more damaging to consumer condence than prices that rise gradually.GASFROM PAGE 1 have declined together in more than 40 years. Through it all, hes shown a deep and abiding delity to one of our most cherished ideals as a people, and that is equal justice under the law, Obama said. Holder responded by speaking of how he was inspired as a boy by Robert Kennedys leadership on civil rights at the Justice Department, his voice choking as he expressed his thanks to Obama and his own family. You got through it, Obama could be heard telling Holder as the audience stood and applauded. In a speech earlier this week, Holder described the dual perspective he brought to the job and how it applied to the Ferguson shooting, in which a young black man was shot and killed by a white policeman. He said he had the utmost respect for police as a former pros ecutor and the brother of an ofcer. But, he added, As an African-American man who has been stopped and searched by police in situations where such actions were not warranted, I also carry with me an understanding of the mistrust that some citizens harbor. Holder told The Associated Press in an interview that hes not sure whether the Justice Department will nish its investigation into the shooting before he leaves. I dont want to rush them, Holder said. He said once out of ofce, he will direct attention to issues that have animat ed me during his tenure, including criminal justice and civil rights. If you asked me what my biggest regret was, I would say that it was the failure to pass any responsible and reasonable gun safety legislation after the shootings in Newtown, Holder said. He said he thought in the aftermath of the school shootings in Connecticut that the nation would embrace change that was not radical but really reasonable on gun ownership.HOLDERFROM PAGE 1 WASHINGTON (Tribune Washington Bureau) The FBI believes it has identied the masked Islamic State militant who appeared in the videotaped beheadings of two American journalists, bureau Director James B. Comey told reporters Thursday. The militant group sparked international outrage when it released videos of a man dressed in black with a British accent taunting President Barack Obama and putting a knife to the throat of James Foley, and later, Steven Sotloff, reporters who were abducted while covering the civil war in Syria. Yes, I believe we have identied the masked militant, Comey said, but he did not elaborate. The FBI has declined to say who is the leading suspect in its investigation of the killings. In the days after the video of Foleys death was released, British Prime Minister David Cameron told the BBC that it was extremely likely that the killer was a British citizen. Some reports have speculated that the swaggering assailant in the video is a 24-year-old British rapper named Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, but U.S. ofcials have expressed doubt about his involvement. Barys father, Adel Abdel Bary, is a longtime Egyptian militant with ties to al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden. The elder Bary pleaded guilty last week in federal court in New York to three charges dealing with threats to kill, injure or intimidate people and damage and destroy property, and admitted links to the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Africa. After the video of Foleys beheading surfaced Aug. 19, the U.S. military stepped up its bombardment of Islamic State targets in Iraq, although there was no indication the additional airstrikes were directly related to the journalists death. This week, the U.S.-led campaign against the group expanded into Syria, hitting Islamic State positions as well as targeting members of a small group of senior al-Qaida ghters known as the Khorasan Group, which has been tasked with attacking the West. Given its unique focus on recruiting Western passport holders to plot mayhem back home, the Khorasan Group posed a threat, Comey said. But he said he was unsure how close the groups members were to pulling off an attack. The FBI estimates that 12 Americans are ghting with terrorist groups in Iraq and Syria, along with hundreds of passport holders from Western European countries, Comey said Thursday. Counterterrorism ofcials are concerned that American or European ghters will try to board airplanes undetected or enter their home countries to launch attacks.FBI: Militant who beheaded Americans IDd MCT PHOTOAttorney General Eric Holder gets emotional as he announces his resignation during a press conference on Thursday.

TAMPA (AP) Researchers have identied two more sets of remains buried on the grounds of a former Florida Panhandle reform school for over a half-century, the team announced Thursday. The University of South Florida team said it has identied the remains of 13-year-old Thomas Varnadoe and 12-year-old Earl Wilson, who both died while conned at the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys. Varnadoe died in 1934, reportedly of pneumonia. Wilson was beaten to death in 1944, reportedly by four other boys while in a small connement cottage on the property, known as the sweat box. The other boys were convicted in his death. In August, researchers said they had identied George Owen Smith as the rst of 55 bodies they exhumed from the school property. Some former students from the 1950s and 1960s have for at least a decade accused employees and guards at the school of physical and sexual abuse, but the Florida Department of Law Enforcement concluded after an investigation that it couldnt substantiate or dispute the claims because too much time had passed. Many former Dozier inmates from that era call themselves The White House Boys after the white building where they say the worst abuse took place. Thomas Varnadoes nephew, Glen Varnadoe, said at a Thursday news conference that his father also was sent to the school. Its been a long road for me and my family, said Varnadoe, of Polk County. It was a priority for the family to remove (Thomas) from the atrocity-laden soils. Over the decades, both boys families wondered where the children were buried. The Varnadoe family also questioned the cause of death. We got the report that he died from pneumonia. We didnt believe that in a minute, said Richard Varnadoe, who is 85 but was 5 years old when his older brother Thomas was sent to the school for allegedly stealing a typewriter. Richard provided DNA to the researchers and it was a perfect match with the body found in one of the simple wooden caskets. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson said the investigation has only just begun. Records showed 31 burials at the Marianna school between its opening in 1900 and its 2011 closure for budget reasons. But USF researchers found the remains of 24 additional people between last September and December. In 2008, the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice held a ceremony to ofcially seal the building and recognize the boys who passed through it. Some of The White House Boys were present and media cover age of the event, as well as an order from then-Gov. Charlie Crist, led to the investigation. At its peak in the 1960s, 500 boys were housed at the Dozier school, most of them for minor offenses such as petty theft, truancy or running away from home. In 1968, when corporal punishment was outlawed at state-run institutions, then-Gov. Claude Kirk visited and found the institution in disrepair with leaky ceilings, holes in walls, cramped sleeping quarters, no heating for the winters and buckets used as toilets. If one of your kids were kept in such circumstances, he said then, youd be up there with ries. Some of the bodies were found under roads or overgrown trees, well away from the white, metal crosses marking the 31 ofcially recorded graves.2 more sets of remains from reform school IDd AP PHOTOWayne Wilson, nephew of Earl Wilson speaks to the media after a news conference Thursday, at the University of South Florida in Tampa. NEW ORLEANS (AP) A federal judge has ruled that BP must stand by the agreement made with the companies it compensated for losses after the 2010 Gulf oil spill despite the oil giant saying some claims were overestimated. BP argued that a awed funding formula enabled nearly 800 businesses to overestimate their spill-related claims. One construction company hundreds of miles from the coast received $13.2 million, but deserved $4.8 million at most, BP said. Another company selling animals and animal skins was overpaid about $14 million, and about 50 others shouldnt have been paid at all, the company said. About 150 claimants should return a total of $185 million, and overpayments to the rest havent been calculated, attorney Kevin Downey argued. U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier was not persuaded Wednesday, thwarting BPs latest attempt to control potential liabilities now approaching $50 billion. The judge agreed weeks ago to change the compensation formula for any future payments, but ruled Wednesday that a deal is a deal when it comes to the money BP has already paid out. Under that deal, claimants agreed not to sue, and BP agreed that no future court action could change their payments. BP disagrees with todays decision and will appeal it, company spokesman Geoff Morrell said. We asked the Court, as a matter of equity and fairness, to order the return of excessive payments. Barbier said he would rule later on the issue of compensation for cleanup workers whose chronic medical problems werent diagnosed until after the deals cutoff date of April 16, 2012. The settlement entitled cleanup workers with chronic conditions including rashes and breathing problems to receive up to $60,700 if the problems rst surfaced within days of their cleanup work. BP is still facing a nancial nightmare from the nations worst oil disaster, which began with an explosion that tore open the oil companys Macondo well on the oor of the Gulf of Mexico, destroying the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig and killing 11 workers. Trying to force businesses to return that compensation could cost the London-based company some goodwill, but BPs nancial pressures are different now. In 2010 and 2011, BP was willing to cut any deal necessary with anyone to reduce its legal risk, said Pavel Molchanov, an energy analyst for Raymond James. Now the company is taking a more assertive approach. BPs closing share price was $50.20 the day of the explosion, and fell to $22.80 in June 2010, before the well was capped. Shareholders returned after BP set aside $42 billion to cover its liabilities, reassured the nancial damage was contained. Thats no longer so clear: The judges ruling this month that BP showed gross negligence and willful misconduct added a new level of uncertainty around BPs spill-related expenses, reducing its market value by $9 billion in a single day.Businesses wont have to return BP spill payouts JACKSONVILLE (AP) Prosecutors Thursday described a white Florida man accused of fatally shooting an unarmed black teenager during an argument over loud music as a cold killer who red multiple times into an SUV. His defense countered during his retrial that the man felt threatened and red in self-defense. Michael Dunn, 47, is on trial for a second time, charged with rst-degree murder in the November 2012 killing of Jordan Davis, a 17-year-old from Marietta, Ga. No one denies that the shots red at the SUV with four teenagers in it killed Davis. Prosecutor John Guy said Dunn red at the SUV with malice in his heart and intent in his hand while the defense said it happened because he felt in imminent danger. Dunn was convicted previously of attempted second-degree murder for ring the shots, but that rst jury deadlocked on the rst-degree murder charge. He faces at least 60 years in prison for the previous convictions. Guy said during his opening statement Thursday that Dunns actions, such as not immediately calling 911 after the shooting, showed that he was unconcerned about repercussions. (Dunn) went back to his hotel, poured a tall rum and coke, took his little dog for a walk, ordered a pizza, watched some TV and went to sleep, Guy said. Defense attorney Waffa Hanania said Dunn didnt think hed done anything illegal. The argument at a convenience store began when Dunn, who is from Satellite Beach, Fla., and was in Jacksonville for his sons wedding, asked the teens to turn down loud rap music. One teen in the car did turn it down, but Davis told him to turn it back up, and started arguing with Dunn. After the argument, Dunn grabbed a pistol from his glove box and red at the SUV, Guy said. The SUV left the scene, but Dunn got out of his car and continued ring, Guy said. Guy said Davis had just been acting like a teenager, and cowered once he saw Dunns gun. For all of his loud music and his four-letter words and teenage bravado, in the end, when it came right down to it, Jordan Russell Davis was just that, a teenager, Guy said. But Dunn had had enough of the mouthy, audacious teenager, Guy said. Dunns defense contends he made a split-second decision to re out of fear, though prosecutors say no gun was ever found in or near the SUV. The only thing Jordan Davis ever had in his hands was a cellphone, Guy said. Hanania said: He acted to defend himself. And he believed that he acted lawfully.Second trial begins in loud music killing

Mortgage company Freddie Mac said Thursday that the nationwide average for a 30-year loan eased to 4.20 percent from 4.23 percent last week. The average for a 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are renancing, slipped to 3.36 percent from 3.37 percent. At 4.20 percent, the rate on a 30-year mortgage is down from 4.53 percent at the start of the year. Rates have fallen even though the Federal Reserve has been trimming its monthly bond purchases, which are intended to keep long-term borrowing rates low. The purchases are set to end next month.Chrysler recalls vehicles to fix ignition switchesDETROIT (AP) Chrysler is recalling nearly 350,000 older cars and SUVs to x defective ignition switches. With the latest recall, Chrysler has called back more than 2 million vehicles for defective switches. The new recall covers Jeep Commander and Grand Cherokee SUVs, Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger sedans and Dodge Magnum wagons from the 2008 model year. All were built before May 12, 2008. Chrysler says the ignitions, after being rotated to the start position, may not fully return to the on position. If the switches lodge between start and on, the windshield defroster and wipers may not work. If the switches move to accessory or off, the engine could shut off and knock out power-assisted steering and other features.US durable goods fell 18.2 percent in AugustWASHINGTON (AP) Orders for long-lasting manufactured goods slumped in August as demand for commercial aircraft descended from record highs, but investment plans by businesses posted promising gains. Durable goods orders fell 18.2 percent in August following a 22.5 percent jump in July, the Commerce Department reported Thursday. Both the big increase and the big drop were records. They reected sharp swings in demand for commercial aircraft, an extremely volatile category that can skew overall results. Airplane orders fell 74.3 percent in August. More importantly, however, a key category that serves as a proxy for business spending plans rose 0.6 percent. NEW YORK (AP) A stumble by Apple set off a rout in the stock market Thursday, its worst day in nearly two months. The selling started early and picked up strength in the after noon. By the close of trading, all 30 big companies in the Dow Jones industrial average and the 10 industries in the Standard & Poors 500 index lost ground. Most investors said the drop wasnt a sign of worry as all the forces behind the markets long rally remain in place. It was only a week ago that the S&P 500 touched a record high, and strong runs are usually followed by short breaks. The index has lost 2 percent this week but is still up 6 percent for the year. Theres just an absence of real news to chew on, said Mark Luschini, the chief investment strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott. When youre at a peak, markets need more and more good news to keep climbing. The S&P 500 index lost 32.31 points, or 1.6 percent, to close at 1,965.99. The Dow slumped 264.26 points, or 1.5 percent, to close at 16,945.80. The Nasdaq composite, which is dominated by technology companies, dropped 88.47 points, or 1.9 percent, to 4,466.75. It was the worst day for all three indexes since July 31. Technology companies were hit hardest. Apple dropped nearly 4 percent following its announcement late Wednesday that it had pulled a software update which prevented users from making phone calls. Others complained that they bent their new iPhones by sitting on them. Apple lost $3.88 to $97.87 in heavy trading. Two economic reports out Thursday were little help. Claims for unemployment benets crept up last week. But the less volatile four-week average fell. A separate report said businesses orders for equipment plunged last month, mainly a result of falling orders for commercial aircraft. The economic numbers were negative, but not alarming and dont change the direction of the economy at this time, said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at Rockwell Global Financial. Henry Smith, chief investment ofcer at Haverford Trust, said there was no fundamental reason behind the drop on Thursday.Apple bites stock market

The leaders of the hardest-hit nations also appealed for more help, with the president of Sierra Leone calling the Ebola virus worse than terrorism. The emergency U.N. session on Ebola reected the deep concern about an outbreak that has so far killed nearly 3,000 people. U.S. health ofcials have warned that the number of infected people could explode to at least 1.4 million by mid-January, though they have also cautioned that the totals could peak well below that if efforts to control the outbreak are ramped up. Despite the grim warnings, Obama said international aid simply is not owing into West Africa fast enough. The outbreak is such, where at this point, more people will die, Obama said as he closed out three days of diplomacy at the annual gathering of the U.N. General Assembly. So this is not one where there should be a lot of wrangling and people waiting to see who else is doing what. Everybody has got to move fast in order for us to make a difference. On Thursday, top lawmakers in Congress also approved the use of leftover Afghanistan war money to begin funding Obamas $1 billion request to help ght the outbreak. Obama has come under criticism from some in West Africa for a slow response to the outbreak. He outlined a more robust plan last week, announcing that the U.S. would dispatch 3,000 U.S. troops to Liberia to set up facilities and form training teams to help with the response. The Pentagon mission will involve airlifting personnel, medical supplies and equipment, such as tents to house Ebola victims and isolate people exposed to the virus. The Ebola outbreak has hit Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea the hardest, leaving aid groups in the region scrambling desperately for resources. Our 150-bed facility in Monrovia opens for just 30 minutes each morning. Only a few people are admitted, to ll beds made empty by those who died over night, the president of Doctors Without Borders, Joanne Liu, told the U.N. meeting. As leaders from West Africa appealed for more help from the international community, they also cast the outbreak as far more than a health crisis. Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, addressing the confer ence via video, said the outbreak was far more than a health crisis, citing a precipitous decline in economic activity as well as the loss of income and jobs for people in her country. President Ernest Bai Koroma of Sierra Leone, who also spoke on a video feed, said his country was facing life and death challenges that were worse than the threat of terrorism. His comments appeared to be a veiled reference to the degree to which the threat from Middle East extremists most notably the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria has dominated the discussions at the U.N. this week.Obama urges world to do more to tackle Ebola SURUC, Turkey (AP) Turkey and its Kurdish population for decades in conict suddenly nd themselves facing a common enemy in the Islamic State group. So it may reasonable to expect prospects for long elusive peace between Turkey and Kurdish rebels to improve. Instead, Kurds who are arriving by the busload to join the battle are increasingly angry at a wary Turkish government trying to prevent them from crossing the border to defend Syrian Kurds from an onslaught that has left countless dead and about 150,000 eeing into Turkey in recent days. Kurdish leaders have warned that the discord could kill a peace process to end a bloody three-decade conict over Kurdish autonomy in Turkey. Their followers go even further, accusing Turkey of supporting the Islamic State and using it to attack Kurds. Those claims persist despite Turkeys participation in a coalition against the Islamic State group and suggestions this week by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that Turkey may take part in military operations. On Thursday, about 1,000 Kurdish activists arrived at the border after a more than 750 miles overnight bus ride from Istanbul in response to a call for mass mobilization by the imprisoned leader of the PKK rebel group, Abdullah Ocalan. The activists held a rally chanting: Down with the Islamic State and AKP partnership, referring to Erdogans Justice and Development Party, as black smoke and the sound of gunre from the battle between Islamic State and Kurdish militants drifted over the border. Turkey vehemently denies it has supported the Islamic State, which until recently was holding dozens of its diplomatic staff hostage. Ofcials have also said in recent days that they remain committed to the peace process with Kurds in Turkey. But many Kurdish activists say they believe that Turkish intelligence trained the Islamic State group and provided it with the heavy weaponry that it is using in an offensive against Kurds in Iraq and Syria. Analysts say that the militants seized much of their heavy weaponry from garrisons, especially when they captured Mosul in Iraq in June. Activists who came to the border said they planned to camp there until Turkish authorities let them across. Some were prepared to join the ght to protect Kobani, a Syrian city just miles away that has been under siege by the Islamic State and emptied except for the Kurdish ghters protecting it. Ramziye Bozkurt, a 35-year-old woman, originally from Diyarbakir in Turkeys Kurdish heart land, accused the Turkish government of ongoing support to the militants, saying that participation in the coalition was just a show. The Islamic State has taken these villages and killed our people, she said, gesturing at the smoking hilltop in the distance. This is just a new way for Turkey to suppress the Kurds. For Bozkurt and others, the ultimate evidence is that Turkey was preventing them from crossing the border to support the ghters. If Turkey were not supporting the Islamic State, why wouldnt they let us go? she said.Kurds see Turkey impeding Islamic State fight AP PHOTOTurkish Kurds shout slogans in support of Syrian Kurdish ghters on the other side of the border near Suruc, Turkey, Wednesday.
PORT CHARLOTTE Taylor Guerrieri did his best to stay a part of the Charlotte Stone Crabs this season. He visited their clubhouse at Charlotte Sports Park a few days a week. He kept in touch with manager Jared Sandberg. He watched games from the stands when he could, and when he couldnt, he followed the action on Twitter. Guerrieri has never played for the Stone Crabs, but the 2014 version of the Tampa Bay Rays High-A afliate was manned by his teammates and managed by his manager. These were the guys the right-hander had come up through the minors with, in Hudson Valley in 2012 and Bowling Green in 2013.

Not the eld in Lehigh Acres. Its been that long since the Pirates have played a home game. The last time Port Charlotte played at Pirates Cove was a 35-0 rout over Melbourne in the regional seminals on Nov. 22. Since then, the Pirates have played a preseason game at Hardee, a kickoff classic at DeSoto County and gone 3-1 through four weeks of the regular season. But Port Charlotte coach Jordan Ingman said the early stretch on the road was a good thing. It was perfect, Ingman said. The Charlotte-Port Charlotte game (at Pirates Cove this year) is always going to have the feel of a home game. But the other two district games are on the road. To play in the district this year weve got to be able to play on the road. Ingman smiled. Weve gotten good at packing and traveling, he added. That experience will soon come in handy. Port Charlotte opens its District 7A-11 play next Thursday at Fort Myers, which is 4-0 this season.

American captain Tom Watson is sending out all three of his rookies for Friday mornings opening session of fourballs at Gleneagles including two of them paired together against a European duo featuring another rookie. Newcomer Jimmy Walker is paired with Rickie Fowler for the second match against Martin Kaymer and Thomas Bjorn, the 43-year-old Dane playing in the Ryder Cup for the first time since 2002. In the biggest surprise, Watson chose to pair first-timers Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed for the third match, where theyll face Ian Poulter and Scottish rookie Stephen Gallacher. Watson offered this message to his rookie pairing: Im going to throw you in the ocean without a life preserver. Youre on your own. You get out there and you get it done. Watson said its important to get the three rookies to play the morning session, rather than sending them out first in the afternoon foursomes.

Tennessee Wesleyan College volleyball players Chassity and Amber Taylor have accepted the challenge. First-year coach Ashley Harris asked setter Chassity to play all the time and defensive specialist/libero Amber to lead the defense. Ive changed around our offense and our defense, Harris said. Im asking a lot more from Amber and Chassity. They denitely have had to adjust. The twins out of Port Charlotte High School have responded by ranking among the team leaders in many categories through 12 matches. Last year Chassity played only back row. For the rst time in her college career, she stays on the court all the time. She (Harris) wanted me to play all-around, Chassity said. I was shocked when she told me that. I like that I can be a part of the game every second, she said. I like to be able to pick the team up when I can. The three middle-hitter rotation Harris incorporated has created more offensive opportunities, Chassity said. They (coaches) taught us how to read and the right spots to be in. The movement is constant. At midweek, she led the team with 180 set assists and 19 service aces and ranked third with 68 kills and fourth with 68 digs. She had a season-best 26 assists against Martin Methodist College and added season highs of 10 digs and eight kills. Chassity has really stepped up to the bar, Harris said. She is a very consistent player. Amber previously played middle back row but is at left back now. She is in charge of the defense, reading opponents movements and calling to teammates where to hit, such as targeting the side line or angling a shot. At rst it was very hard, she said. Now that Ive been doing a lot of this, its very easy for me to learn how they (opponents) block. I feel like I get more contact, she said. I can read better. Amber led the team with 114 digs and was second with 11 service aces. She had 10 or more digs in ve matches, including a season-high 22 against Martin Methodist. Harris called Amber a dynamic player. Shes grown a lot as far as her character, the coach said. She has taken control of the back court. She has been more comfortable in her abilities and her skills. As juniors, the Taylors embrace the new leadership, noting the 4-8 record not much different than the 5-7 start (7-21 nish) last year is deceiving. Were actually competing with teams this year, Chassity said. Were playing with them. This year they (the coaches) gave you roles, and you have to accomplish them, Amber said. If you make a mistake, they help you right after that play. Theyre always boosting our condence.Know a local athlete continuing their career in college? Contact Barbara Boxleitner at BKLE3@aol.comSisters adapt to bigger role for BulldogsBy BARBARA BOXLEITNERSUN CORRESPONDENT AWAY AT COLLEGE: Taylor twinsCHASSITY AMBER But while Guerrieri and the Stone Crabs shared Charlotte Sports Complex this season, a hallway always separated them. The baseball team used the home clubhouse. The pitcher spent his time in the rehab room working his way back from the Tommy John surgery he underwent 14 months ago on Wednesday. Thats whats driving Guerrieri as he continues his rehab during the Rays Instructional League this month. After spending more than a year working in the trainers room and playing on the back elds, the organizations No. 3 prospect is champing at the bit to join an afliate. Words cant describe it. I havent been on a real team in over a year-and-a-half now, Guerrieri said Wednesday. Hopefully next year, wherever they put me, we win, I throw well. I just want to stay healthy. Thats the main goal. Im pretty useless without my health. When he was healthy, Guerrieri appeared to be on a fast track to the major leagues. The 24th overall pick in the 2011 draft used his three plus pitches to compile seven wins, a 1.59 ERA and 96 strikeouts over 119 innings in 26 starts over his rst season and a half in the minor leagues before leaving a July 15, 2013 start with elbow soreness and going under the knife nine days later. Guerrieri returned to the mound on July 1 of this year, giving up three unearned runs over 913 innings in ve games with the Gulf Coast League Rays. But the right-hander felt pain in his elbow during the third inning of what would be his nal start of the season, forcing the Rays to shut him down again. It kind of humbles you in a way that for me, honestly, personally, has increased my work ethic to try and have this never happen again, Guerrieri said. I think in the long run, it was kind of a good thing for me to have the surgery. Because its taught me a lot of things over the course of this 14-month process. Its a process that has brought out a change in Guerrieri. Despite the right-handers talent on the mound, his reputation off the eld has dogged him somewhat throughout his career, made evident by the 50-game suspension he served for drugs of abuse this season. But Guerrieri doesnt shy away from whats happened in the past, and he denitely learned a lot about myself over the past year. What happens with the young high school players is that they come in very immature. They all come at different maturation rates, Rays director of minor league operations Mitch Lukevics said. I think Taylor, through his own admission, would use and say the suspension and certainly the injury has helped him in one sense, which was to mature as a young man. His recovery is far from complete, though. Other than one or two bullpen sessions, Guerrieri wont do anything more than play catch for the remainder of this months Instructional League. He thinks hell begin a full offseason throwing program in January, and he said the Rays have informed him he wont begin his spring training until extended begins in April. Guerrieri hopes be back where he wants to be before long. He might not be with his old teammates or his old manager, but he will be back with an afliate. Thats what hes ready for. I want to be in a good team environment. Real minor league baseball, Guerrieri said. Not these back elds; I want to be under the lights.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or firstname.lastname@example.org.TEAMFROM PAGE 1 | CO MMUNITY CALENDARTHIS WEEKENDPort Charlotte Little League registration: Saturday at Harold Ave. Recreation Center; 10 a.m.-noon; season starts Monday.

BASKETBALL: World ChampionshipAmericans have weaknessWhile the U.S. womens basketball team is a heavy favorite to win another gold medal at the world championship, the Americans have shown some unusual vulnerability. The U.S. has only lost once at the worlds since 1998, but suffered a rare defeat in an exhibition game against France last weekend. That setback raised a few eyebrows heading into the tournament, which begins Saturday in Istanbul. There are a lot of really good teams in the tournament and were one of them, said coach Geno Auriemma. For us or anyone else to think were anything more than that is not being really objective about this whole thing. The Americans ran through the 2012 London Olympics winning by an average of 34 points and have more than half of that team back in Turkey. Point guard Sue Bird, who will become the rst U.S. player to compete on four world championship teams, will help lead the U.S. offense. Bird said she wasnt aware of the milestone, its kind of surreal in a way. One reality she is used to when it comes to playing for the U.S. is the limited training as a team. While other nations have been together for months preparing for the worlds, the Americans didnt nalize their roster until Tuesday. What the team lacks in preparation, they make up for with talent. The roster is headlined by Diana Taurasi, Angel McCoughtry and Maya Moore. One potential thorn for the U.S. is a lack of experienced post players. Two-time Olympians Candace Parker and Sylvia Fowles are out with injuries. That leaves Tina Charles and Candice Dupree as the only experienced posts. They do, however, have 6-foot-8 Brittney Griner, who will be making her debut on the U.S. national team. She was the WNBA defensive player of the year and set a record for most blocked shots in a game and season. Griner recently was cleared to join the team after suffering a retinal injury in Game 2 of the WNBA Finals. My role will be blocking shots, playing defense and protecting that paint, said Griner, who didnt play in the loss to France. Im happy with that; I love defense. The Americans have a relatively easy draw facing China, Serbia and Angola in preliminary pool play. The U.S. has won all 11 meetings with China and Angola and will be facing Serbia for the rst time. Only Russia and Australia have caused problems for the U.S. in major international tournaments since 1996.By DOUG FEINBERGASSOCIATED PRESSRecent loss to France points opponents to the post AP FILE PHOTOSue Bird, shown during the WNBA season in July, will become the rst American player to compete on four world championship teams when she takes the court for Saturdays event opener.

The Sun /Friday, September 26, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 With the title, James stays in Miami By IRA WINDERMANSUN SENTINELMIAMI In an interview to air today on CNN, LeBron James acknowledged that with three more victories in June he likely would have remained with the Miami Heat instead of signing with Cleveland in July as a free agent. In the interview with Rachel Nichols for the networks Unguarded program that airs Fridays at 10:30 p.m., James said a third consecutive Heat championship likely would have preempted his eventual return to Cleveland. The Heat instead lost 4-1 in the NBA Finals to San Antonio. Its a greater chance, for sure, he said. I mean, it would be hard to leave back-to-back-to-back championships and try to go for four. But, obviously, you really cant live and think of what may have happened. For me, Ive always been a person to kind of live in the moment. He said seeking his third championship after switching teams will present new challenges. I understand what it takes to get there, he said of his four-year Heat tenure, which included four trips to the NBA Finals and championships in 2012 and I understand what it takes to win. Its so difcult. Its the hardest thing Ive ever done in my life. NBA: LeBron JamesAP FILE PHOTOMiamis LeBron James says in a TV interview scheduled to air today that it would have been dicult for him to leave the Heat had the team been the reigning champions. NBA CALENDARSATURDAY: Camps open for teams competing in preseason games outside North America. TUESDAY: Camps open for all teams. OCT. 27: Rosters set. OCT. 28: Regular season begins. FEB. 1315: All-Star weekend, New York. TAMPA Tampa Bays banged-up roster will get a boost this week. Running back Doug Martin said Thursday that his injured knee is 100 percent and he expects to play Sunday at Pittsburgh. Knees coming along just ne, Martin said. Martin rushed for 1,454 yards in 2012 and made the Pro Bowl as a rookie. But injuries limited him to 127 yards in six games last year before he landed on IR. He started the opener against Carolina and had 9 yards on nine carries before exiting with a left knee injury. Its hard being out, in general, especially with an injury, Martin said before Thursdays practice. You want to get out there with the guys, but youve got to let your body heal and not put yourself at greater risk of injury. Martin isnt the only reinforcement for the Bucs. Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy (broken hand), tight end Austin SeferianJenkins (ankle) and defensive end Michael Johnson were limited in practice Thursday but have a good chance to play. A big boost, I mean thats our team, coach Lovie Smith said. We cant win if we dont expect to put it on the eld every week. So the more of our players we get back, the better our football team is going to be, its as simple as that. Bad month: At 35, Josh McCown knows the sand is running out of his hourglass to be a starting quarterback in the NFL. Having climbed back to that position for the first time in a decade, he suffered a crushing setback when he tore a ligament in his right thumb last week in Atlanta. Even worse, the Bucs are 0-3, McCown has thrown two touchdowns and four interceptions and the team is preparing to play second-year pro Mike Glennon. This has been as tough a three weeks as Ive had in my career just from a disappointment standpoint and all of that and injury and all those things, McCown said. But its not my makeup to sit and sulk. We have 13 games left. Theres a lot of football left to play. McCown, who signed a two-year, $10 million contract in March, has not practiced this week and will be reevaluated. So far, he said, surgery is not something he believes is required: We take this thing day by day. You know, obviously, if it was that pressing of a need, I probably wouldve already had it done. Were very optimistic to get healthy and move forward. In the meantime, McCown said he will do everything to prepare Glennon. For me, its always about the team, first and foremost, McCown said. So as a player, when you experience an injury or something like that, whats the next thing you can do to help the team? A is to get healthy and get yourself back on the field and available. And B is to be an extra set of eyes and voice in your (quarter backs) room to help that position. Kafka promoted: No. 3 quarterback Mike Kafka was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster and expected to dress Sunday as the backup to Glennon. To make room for Kafka, the Bucs waived guard Rishaw Johnson, acquired from Kansas City in August for reserve safety Kelcie McCray. Johnson has been inactive for each of Tampa Bays three games. To fill Kafkas spot on the practice squad, the Bucs signed undrafted rookie center Josh Allen, who was with the team in preseason and briefly part of the initial 53-man roster.Martin returns to lineupBy MATT BAKER, RICK STROUD AND GREG AUMANTAMPA BAY TIMES NFL: Tampa Bay notebookTeam promotes QB from practice squad to serve as backup this week BUCCANEERS AT STEELERSWHO: Tampa Bay (0-3) at Pittsburgh (2-1) WHEN: Sunday, 1 p.m. WHERE: Heinz Field, Pittsburgh TV: FOX RADIO: 620 AM AP PHOTOTennessee quarterback Charlie Whitehurst, right, calls a play during practice Thursday in Nash ville, Tenn. With starter Jake Locker recovering from a strained right wrist, the Titans could start Whitehurst on Sunday at Indianapolis.DAVIE Miami Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said he regrets the distraction he created by being non-committal on whether quarterback Ryan Tannehill will start Sunday in London against Oakland. Philbin was contrite Thursday, but didnt announce his starter. One of the functions of the head coach is to create an atmosphere free from distractions, Philbin said. And to the degree that I contributed to any of those distractions, intended or not doesnt really matter, that falls on me. Its my responsibility so certainly I accept that responsibility as coach. Really, thats all I have to say on it. When asked at if Tannehill will start, Philbin only said he had already covered the topic. Family remembers Bironas at funeral: So many family, friends and former teammates mourned Rob Bironas that more than 30 people sat in an overflow area outside the funeral home with the service streamed on a video board. Bironas, 36, died Saturday in single-vehicle crash. There are 911 calls describing him as the man trying to chase and run people off the road before his accident.

Locker didnt practice Thursday, although Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said hes getting better. Around the nation: British broadcaster Sky Sports signed a new expanded five-year deal with the NFL to show more than 80 games per season starting next season. The new deal adds Monday night games to Skys NFL package, which already includes regular-season games on Thursdays and Sundays along with the playoffs and the Super Bowl. The value of the deal was not disclosed. San Francisco linebacker Patrick Willis revealed he hasnt been fined despite drawing three penalties in the 49ers 23-14 loss at Arizona.Coy Philbin regrets causing a distractionBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NFL NOTEBOOKBut Miami coach refuses to name his starting QB ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. The video of Ray Rice punching his ancee inside a casino elevator was sent to NFL headquarters to the attention of league security chief Jeffrey Miller in April, a law enforcement ofcial said. The NFL has said no one with the league saw the violent images until TMZ Sports released the video this month. The ofcial, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasnt authorized to release details of the case, said he doesnt know if Miller ever saw the DVD or opened the package. His only communication with the NFL was a 12-second voicemail on April 9 from league ofces conrming receipt of the package, in which a woman says, Youre right. Its terrible. The ofcial told the AP two weeks ago that he sent the video to the NFL, but asked the AP not to report that he had addressed the package to Miller. He eliminated that restriction Thursday. Miller, in London preparing for the RaidersDolphins game Sunday, is sued a statement to the AP Thursday night through an NFL spokesman. I unequivocally deny that I received at any time a copy of the video, and I had not watched it until it was made public on September 8, he said. It remains unclear what happened to the video once it arrived at league ofces. There are two NFL executives named Jeffrey Miller, but the law enforcement ofcial didnt know that, and intended it to go to the chief of security. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the other Jeffrey Miller who is involved in lobbying for the league did not report receiving the video. The law enforcement ofcial said he wanted to make sure the NFL had the video before deciding on Rices punishment. My intention wasnt to bring down Commissioner Goodell or anyone else at the NFL, he said. He said he didnt know the identity of the woman who left him the voicemail. He said he chose Miller because of his law enforcement background, even though he didnt know him personally. The law enforcement ofcial said he does not want to speak to NFL investigators.Source: Video sent to NFL security chief NFL: Ray Rice scandalClaims tape arrived, but cant say if it reached MillerBy ROB MAADDIASSOCIATED PRESS TALLAHASSEE Florida State starting defensive end Mario Edwards, Jr. and backup running back Mario Pender will sit Saturday against North Carolina State after sustaining concussions last week against Clemson. Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher announced the moves Thursday.

Drug testing intensifies at Texas: The number of drug tests administered to University of Texas football players has skyrocketed under first-year coach Charlie Strong, according to university data obtained by the Austin American-Statesman through an open records request. According to university records, an average of 104 tests were adminis tered annually to football players from 2010 to 2013, the last four years under former coach Mack Brown. A total of 188 tests were administered the first eight months this year under Strong. The entire team was tested in March just after spring break and tests continued up to the day before the season opener last month. Brown usually tested players in the spring and mid-October, but never during training camp or before the season opener, records indicate. Information obtained by the American-Statesman does not indicate how many players tested positive. Louisville to start freshman QB: Louisville coach Bobby Petrino has announced freshman Reggie Bonnafon will make his first start at quarterback against Wake Forest in place of injured sophomore Will Gardner. Petrino made the announcement after practice and said Gardner has responded well to treatment but wasnt cleared by the medical staff.

Yoenis Cespedes and Allen Craig had one-out singles before Garin Cecchini reached on rst baseman James Loneys error, with Cespedes scoring on the play. Steve Geltz then came in and Castillo drove the relievers rst pitch into the front row of Green Monster seats for a three-run shot. Hellickson lasted just 2 1-3 innings, getting tagged for six runs ve earned and eight hits. Vazquezs two-run homer bounced off a billboard above the Monster, lifting the Red Sox to a 3-1 lead in the second. Daniel Navas sacrice y gave Boston a 1-0 edge in the rst before Ben Zobrists RBI single in the second tied it. Notes: Rays manager Joe Maddon said SS Yunel Escobar, who sprained his left knee Tuesday and was sent to Florida for an MRI, only has a bruise, but hes done for the remainder of the season because the MRI was bad enough that he cant play anymore. ... Red Sox DH David Ortiz missed his second straight game with a sore left wrist and manager John Farrell said the team would learn toward shutting him down, but at the same time if he feels good to go, were certainly not going to hold him out. ... Farrell also said INF/OF Brock Holt, out with a concussion since Sept. 5, would probably not play again. ... 3B Will Middlebrooks missed his third straight game with a sprained right hand. Its been a rough year, he said of his season between injuries, a .191 average and shuttling up and down from Triple-A. ... Farrell was selected to manage the major league team in the All-Star series in Japan, replacing former Texas manager Ron Washington, who resigned from his job with the Rangers in early September. The major league stars will face Japans national team in a ve-game series.RED SOX 11, RAYS 1Tampa Bay AB R H BI BB SO Avg.

And because of the way he pitched, so are the Milwaukee Brewers. Holmberg, a graduate of Port Charlotte High School, threw six innings as Cincinnati ofcially ended Milwaukees postseason hopes with a 5-3 win on Thursday. Milwaukees loss meant the San Francisco Giants clinched a playoff spot. Holmberg (2-2) allowed two runs on three hits and a walk to earn his second career win, both in the last 12 days against Milwaukee starter Yovani Gallardo. Im getting more comfortable, said Holmberg, acquired from Arizona last winter. I feel good going into spring training next year. It gives me condence to compete against teams in our division. Meanwhile, Cincinnati manager Bryan Price is getting a good look at the organizations young players. Holmberg gave a terric effort, Price said. Yankees 6, Orioles 5: In New York, Derek Jeter capped his Yankee Stadium farewell with a game-winning single in the bottom of the ninth inning. Serenaded with adoring chants that echoed through the Bronx night, Jeter tipped his cap several times at shortstop and drove in three runs. He launched an early double off the wall and saved the best for last a sharp, opposite-field single to right that knocked in the winning run. Tigers 4, Twins 2: In Detroit, Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez homered, Max Scherzer made it through six innings for Detroit. Martinez hit a two-run homer in the first, and Cabrera added a solo shot in the fourth. Marlins 6, Phillies 4: In Miami, Casey McGehee had three RBIs, including a two-run tie-breaking double in the seventh inning, and Miami rallied in its home finale. Mariners 7, Blue Jays 5: In Toronto, Logan Morrison hit two home runs and Mike Zunino also connected as Seattle avoided a four-game sweep, snapped a five-game losing streak and kept its faint playoff hopes alive. Rangers 2, Athletics 1: In Arlington, Texas, Adrian Beltre hit a walk-off homer in the ninth inning for Texas. Beltres drive over the wall in right field was his team-leading 19th homer but just his second since Aug. 10. The As (86-73) lost a chance to clinch a wild-card spot when Seattle won at Toronto 7-5 earlier in the day in a game shown on the big video board in the Rangers ballpark. Pirates 10, Braves 1: In Atlanta, Edinson Volquez threw seven scoreless innings, Travis Snider and Neil Walker hit homers as Pittsburgh moved within one game of the NL Central lead. Nationals 3-4, Mets 0-7: In Washington, Gio Gonzalez struck out a career-high 12 batters and allowed just one hit through seven innings in the Nationals 3-0 win over the New York Mets in the second game of day-night doubleheader as Washington salvaged a split. In the first game, Ryan Zimmermans healing hamstring appeared to pass a seven-inning test for playoff-bound Washington in a 7-4 loss. Around the nation: Milwaukee scratched right-hander Matt Garza after it was eliminated. Rookie Jimmy Nelson (2-8) will start instead. Minnesota right-hander Phil Hughes turned down a chance to pitch again this weekend, even though one more out (210 innings) would have earned him a $500,000 bonus. MLB ROUNDUP

Suffolk Downs, the regions lone remaining track, is shutting down this year, a victim of changes in a gambling industry that now revolves around lotteries and casinos. The once-grand track, which hosted Seabiscuit and other premier horses of the day, had hoped to revive its sagging fortunes with a $1.1 billion Mohegan Sun casino project. But after the proposal was rejected last week, operators said they had no choice but to close the nearly 80-year-old facility. Live racing is set to end Oct. 4. Betting on televised races or simulcasts will be offered until about December. State gambling regulators said theyll consider proposals to keep the local industry going so long as they meet an Oct. 1 deadline. But with just days to go and no immediate proposals on the table, some industry leaders fear this racing season spells the end of an era for Boston.TENNISKvitova, Bouchard qualify for Wuhan Open semis: Third-seeded Petra Kvitova swept aside Caroline Garcia 6-3, 6-4 to reach the semifinals of the Wuhan Open in Wuhan, China, while Caroline Wozniacki rallied to beat Timea Bacsinszky of Switzerland 4-6, 6-2, 6-3.

Page 6 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, September 26, 2014 Senior Anthony Stephens said going on the road will pay dividends after some early experiences away from home this season. It taught us to stay focused, he said. A lot of times, wed be on the bus and not focused and our minds are everywhere. A road trip isnt simply getting on the bus for a quick nap on the way to a game many times, its a lot of details that take the attention away from players and coaches. The biggest advantage (of playing at home) is just peace of mind, Ingman said. We travel with so much extra stuff cameras and everything. Theres so much more preparation spent packing and traveling than actually coaching. But tonight isnt so much of a concern. Not when your worries are limited to the short walk from the locker room to the game eld. Its going to be a thrill, quarterback Christian Coffelletto said. Its going to be really exciting playing in front of our fans, nally. Being on the road it sucks, but we have to get used to it for when we play on the road in the future. The Pirates rst four weeks were about things other than the hardships of traveling. Port Charlotte had to look in the mirror after a tough 35-6 loss to Venice in Week 2. Port Charlotte won twice away from home since then, but that loss is still a tough pill to swallow. I think about it a lot, Stephens said. Every time we look at our record and see that , it brings back memories. Ingman agreed the loss was important in the Pirates growing process this season. Theres nothing like the tape and the tape didnt lie, he said. Thats why we scheduled (Venice). We knew wed have to get better and that denitely showed us where to get better.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or firstname.lastname@example.orgPIRATESFROM PAGE 1 | TONIGHTS GAMESCHARLOTTE AT LAKEWOOD RANCHWHEN: 7:30 p.m. WHERE: Mustang Stadium, Lakewood Ranch High School, Bradenton RECORDS: Charlotte 2-2; Lakewood Ranch 2-2. LAST WEEK: Charlotte lost to Venice 30-6; Lakewood Ranch lost to Braden River 21-6. TALKING POINTS: Both teams are looking to rebound from rivalry losses last week ahead of district play next week. Junior Elijah Mack leads the Tarpons rushing attack with 252 yards and four TDs, but he also has seven fumbles this season. Charlotte also has sophomore Maleek Williams (103 yards, 1 TD) as an option. QB Brennan Simms has passed for 266 yards with 2 TDs and 4 interceptions. Senior LB Ty Tyler is a difference maker on defense he blocked a punt and forced a fumble on a sack last week. Lakewood Ranch is paced by senior QB Chad Rex, who is a dual threat. RB Justin Fischer is the Mustangs top threat on the ground. He rushed for 61 yards last week against Braden River.DESOTO COUNTY AT NORTH PORTWHEN: 7:30 p.m. WHERE: The Preserve, North Port High School, North Port RECORDS: DeSoto County 3-0; North Port 1-3. LAST WEEK: DeSoto County defeated Booker 20-6; North Port lost to Palmetto 21-0. TALKING POINTS: Bulldogs 3-0 start matches their start in 2012 and their victory over Booker was DeSoto Countys first district win since 2010. QB Reggie Jones is the Bulldogs main threat, rushing for 303 yards and 3 TDs this season. RB Zack Beeles is DeSoto Countys main inside threat with 225 rushing yards and 4 TDs. Defensive linemen Deionte Turner and Ernest Robinson are the foundation of the defense. Turner scored a rushing touchdown last week. North Port QB Christian Van Der Veer leads the area with 564 passing yards, but only has two passing TDs with an interception. RB Zefen Bruno is a versatile runner with 233 yards and two TDS. Matthew Laroche (83 rushing yards) is also an option. DUNBAR AT LEMON BAYWHEN: 7 p.m. WHERE: Veterans Stadium, Lemon Bay High School, Englewood RECORDS: Dunbar 0-3, 0-0 in District 5A-14; Lemon Bay 2-2, 0-1. LAST WEEK: Dunbar idle; Lemon Bay lost to Island Coast 16-13, OT. TALKING POINTS: Tigers have struggled to recover after QB Bob Rice was dismissed from team before teams opener against Naples. Tariq Thomas has taken over behind center. Dunbar has been held to 13 points this season. RB Lajuan Preston led the Tigers with 44 rushing yards in Dunbars 14-7 loss to Riverdale. LB-RB Brian McGill is questionable this week after sustaining a concussion against Island Coast. QB Jeremy Snook ranks second in the area with 352 rushing yards and three TDS. But RB Anthony Marinola (341 yards) is also a threat around the edges. WR Nic Mostyn leads area with 14 receptions. This game is probably a must-win for both teams as far as the postseason is concerned.LEHIGH AT PORT CHARLOTTEWHEN: 7:30 p.m. WHERE: Pirates Cove, Port Charlotte High School, Port Charlotte RECORDS: Lehigh 1-3; Port Charlotte 3-1. LAST WEEK: Lehigh lost to SarasotaRiverview 42-34; Port Charlotte defeated Lely 34-7. TALKING POINTS: Freshman RB Chris Curry has emerged as a major threat, rushing for 270 yards and 3 TDs over the past two weeks.

The Lightning have had issues holding onto leads, blowing double-digit leads in losses to Palmetto Ridge and Sarasota-Riverview. Pirates QB-RB Anthony Stephens leads the area with 372 rushing yards. RB Brennan Norus had a breakout game against Lely with 157 rushing yards and three TDs against Lely. As Christian Coffelletto adjusts to quarterback role, expect his main target to be Paulsin Heitter (7 receptions, 80 yards).MATER ACADEMY AT VENICEWHEN: 7:30 p.m. WHERE: Powell-Davis Stadium, Venice High School, Venice RECORDS: Mater Academy 2-1; Venice 4-0. LAST WEEK: Mater Academy defeated Miami Lakes 14-6; Venice defeated Charlotte 30-6.

Since opening the season with a 46-44 victory over Palmetto, the Indians have won their last three by 29, 28 and 24 points. Langston Provitt leads the Indians with 324 rushing yards and four TDs. He had three catches for a season-high 131 yards against Charlotte. Defensive linemen Alex Hoag and Jarrod Hewitt anchor Venices defense.OTHER DISTRICT GAMESDISTRICT 5A-14Mariner at Island Coast: The Tritons have been outscored 180-19 this season. Island Coast is coming off an overtime victory over Lemon Bay. North Fort Myers at Cape Coral: The Red Knights and Seahawks won their games last week by a combined 89 points. Cape Coral (4-0 overall) is the lone unbeaten in District 5A-14. North can barge their way into the district playoff picture with a win here. Rob Shore their feet wet, Watson said. You would like to get them to play all 18 holes, play their own ball and get them out that way. The 21-year-old Spieth, who has five top-five finishes this year on the PGA Tour, will become the youngest player in 15 years to play in the Ryder Cup. Hes back in familiar surroundings: He played in the 2010 Junior Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, winning all three of his matches. Hes on the fast track because he played the Junior Ryder Cup here at Gleneagles, Watson said. Hes a very strongwilled man and Im very impressed with his attitude. Same goes for the 24-year-old Reed, who declared himself one of the top five players in the world after winning at Doral this year. When he gets it going, he thinks he can beat the world, Watson said. I like that attitude in a player. If Spieth and Reed can take down Poulter and Gallacher, it could provide a huge confidence boost and momentum swing for the underdog Americans. Poulter has won seven straight matches dating to Celtic Manor in 2010 and was the catalyst in Europes great comeback at Medinah two years ago. I dont think you could have picked out two people that we want to play against more, Spieth said. I feel like our job is to win a point. We can do that with those two guys. Were going to really lower their team morale, I feel like. Europe captain Paul McGinley left out his two other rookies Victor Dubuisson of France and Jamie Donaldson of Wales for the morning. He was asked about Watsons decision to play all three of his rookies. That might be a genius move by Tom, might not, he said. Walker is the veteran of the U.S. rookie trio. Hes 35 and has played on the tour for nearly a decade. He won events early this season and finished in the top 10 at three majors this year. Ive been playing professional golf for a long time, Reed said. Ive been on a couple of tours, made some big putts at key times, keeping my card, that type of stuff. I know this is a new event for me, but Ive done a lot, so I dont feel like a rookie.ROOKIESFROM PAGE 1 RYDER CUP PAIRINGSGLENEAGLES, Scotland Pairings for the opening session of fourballs matches today at the Ryder Cup (all times EDT): 2:35 a.m. Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson, United States, vs. Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson, Europe. 2:50 a.m. Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker, United States, vs. Thomas Bjorn and Martin Kaymer, Europe. 3:05 a.m. Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed, United States, vs. Stephen Gallacher and Ian Poulter, Europe. 3:20 a.m. Keegan Bradley and Phil Mickelson, United States, vs. Sergio Garcia and Rory McIlroy, Europe. Tarpons bounce LaBelleSTAFF REPORTLABELLE The Charlotte High School volleyball team earned a 25-10, 21-25, 25-17, 25-13 nondistrict win against LaBelle on Thursday night. The Tarpons were led by Marisa Beisners 13 kills. Maddie Foley added nine kills, Hailey Whitehead had eight and Megan McGill contributed ve aces. Defensively, Kaylee Brannon had 27 digs. We played really well as a team, Charlotte coach Michelle Dill said. We played a little bit quicker on offense and defense, and picked it up during the third and fourth games. The Tarpons (11-3, 2-2 District 7A-11) travel to Fort Myers on Tuesday to face the Green Wave in a 7 p.m. district match. Fort Myers swept Charlotte 25-19, 25-17, 25-23 in the teams rst meeting this season earlier this month. Their offense is really strong we just have to put up a better block and get our defense a little quicker so we can pick up the their kills, their hits, Dill said. Charlottes other district loss this season came against Gulf Coast. Riverdale rounds out the teams in District 7A-11, and the Tarpons earned a hard-fought 25-10, 25-22, 25-22 victory against the Raiders on Tuesday.

As a hush fell over a shadowy 18th green at Medinah, Kaymer settled over a six-foot putt that would complete one of the great comebacks in all of sports. The German, a year into a rebuild of his swing, wasnt in great form at the time and was playing in only his second match of the week. But for some reason, he knew he wouldnt miss. For me, everything was so clear, he said on Thursday. I wasnt afraid of failure. The putt rolled into the middle of the cup. Kaymer raised both sts and skipped across the green before jumping into the arms of Sergio Garcia, images that have been played on a loop these past few weeks in the seemingly endless buildup to the Ryder Cup. Kaymer has found himself sitting down and watching them. The memory you cannot put into words sparked his return to the elite of golf after a slump in form following his rst major win at the 2010 U.S. PGA Championship and becoming No. 1 in 2011. I was not in a deep hole, maybe a little plugged one, Kaymer said. It denitely (gave me) a little more motivation again ... I was a little bit surprised how well I handled the last hour. Two years on, Kaymer is now a two-time major champion after his wireto-wire victory at the U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 in June, and one of Europes top men at Gleneagles this week. Kaymers good form in May through June, when he won the Players Championship and the U.S. Open, has cooled somewhat but he should still play more at Gleneagles than he did at Medinah. And Europe wouldnt want anyone else to be over a putt to win the Ryder Cup on Sunday afternoon. Its one of those things that you dont have a choice missing. Its not an option, said Kaymer, one of ve members of the European team players, captains or vice captains to have holed a winning putt at a Ryder Cup. A lot of guys, and you see it in different sports, sometimes they are afraid of winning because its a different situation. It can be uncomfortable. Its a nice situation for me. GOLF: Ryder CupAP PHOTOEuropes Martin Kaymer plays a shot o the 15th tee during a practice round for the Ryder Cup on Wednesday at Gleneagles, Scotland.Hole lot of loveKaymer relives putt that relaunched career By STEVE DOUGLASASSOCIATED PRESS GLENEAGLES, Scotland The last man chosen for the U.S. Ryder Cup team lobbied Tom Watson into the wee hours of the morning. Webb Simpson couldnt sleep after arriving late in Denver following the Deutsche Bank Championship outside Boston. He was in the running as a captains pick. He thought he would have heard something by then. So he picked up his phone and made a desperate plea to Watson via text message. Even more surprising was how quickly Watson replied. The message: This is a tough decision, Webb. And it made Simpson think he has missed out. Then, Watson called and asked Simpson why he should be in the team. It was 4:30 a.m. Watson was to announce his picks that night. I just told him about my passion for the Ryder Cup from my one experience, and how much I cared about it, and how much I believed I thought I could bring to the team, Simpson said. A few hours later, Watson decided to pick Simpson.Simpsons plea pans out GOLF: Ryder CupBy STEVE DOUGLASASSOCIATED PRESS AT A GLANCEFORMAT: Four matches of four balls (better ball) and foursomes (alternate shot) Friday, Saturday, 12 singles matches Sunday. POINTS: Europe needs 14 points to retain the cup. The United States needs 14 points to win the cup. SERIES: U.S. leads 25-12-2. LAST TIME: Europe produced the greatest comeback for a visiting team when it rallied from a 10-6 deficit to win, 14-13. Ian Poulter began the rally Saturday night with birdies on his last five holes to win a fourballs match. In Sunday singles, Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia and Poulter each won the last two holes of their matches for 1-up victories to lead the rally.

Friday, September 26, 2014 Herald Page 7 National Assisted Living Week took place Sept. 7 and featured the theme The Magic of Music. Music has the ability to bring people together, something South Port Square values beyond measure. The bond created by staff, residents and families at South Port Square is evident as we build warm, welcoming, and vibrant homes for residents. The Magic of Music events also helped us to say thank you to our assisted living residents, many of whom have made signicant contributions to our country as business owners, veterans, civic leaders, reghters, teachers, parents and grandparents. Established by the National Center for Assisted Living in 1995, National Assisted Living Week provided a unique opportunity for residents, families, staff, volunteers and the surrounding community to come together to share with our residents a variety of events and activities that show them how much we care for them. Music provides comfort, joy and enhances the lives of residents, said Richard Finn, the Executive Director of South Port Square. This celebration recognizes the bonds built between residents and the assisted living professionals who are committed to providing residents with personcentered care and services. Some of the weeks special events included music therapy with Monica Babcock, rock n roll with Denny Pezzin as Elvis, a wonderful island party with Trio De Janero Band, a patriotic sing-along with Dolly Smith and the grand nale with Top Hats Swing Band. This series of events developed as a special opportunity to bring together residents, families and the surrounding community to celebrate The Magic of Music. It was a pleasure to see the residents playing the bongos, dancing and singing and having a time of their life. It was truly a magical week.Magic of Music celebrated at South Port SquarePROVIDED BY SOUTH PORT SQUARE PHOTOS PROVIDEDFrom left, Anna Facklemann, Shirley Ryder, Robin Szymanski, Denny Pezzin, Cynthia Lamb, Jackie Nordell, Donna Graebner, Doris McGinnis and June Stuhler enjoyed The Magic of Music themed events at South Port Square.

It will be ready for occupancy on schedule, by June 1, 1975, Sheriff Jack Bent told Punta Gorda Rotarians this week. The total project cost will be approximately $1.3 million. Bent mentioned that the utility cost for the new jail will be higher than at the existing facility. The same number of personnel will be employed. Funding for the project is being provided entirely by racetrack taxes paid to the state.Superfish reduce aquatic weed problem in lakesState ofcials say ve years of research has convinced them that they have found a good method to attack the aquatic weed problem in Floridas lakes. State biologists say the white amur, nicknamed supersh because of its voracious appetite, has been doing an excellent job of eating the weed hydrilla in smaller lakes. Now, they want to move the supersh into larger bodies of water. The Natural Resources Department wishes to release the sh into lakes up to 5,000 acres in size. Hydrilla is becoming an increasing and expensive problem in Florida. Winter Park spends more than $150,000 a year on chemicals in order to get rid of the weed. White amurs look like large, silver carp.In the service Fireman William D. Harper has returned from a six-month deploy ment in the Middle East. He sailed back on the destroyer escort USS Paul.

Having moved away from Punta Gorda, I had not kept up with the progress. The idea originated with Peggy Desguin (Mrs. Victor Desguin.) She had seen a similar project at Florida State University, Tallahassee. She talked about it full of enthusiasm to us. Any place to begin would do, and we started with a suitcase museum, containing mainly fossil collections. Extra and special thanks should go to Peggy and Vic Desguin for their interest and perseverance. The Desguins have contributed much to the youth of Charlotte County for as long as I can remember. That goes back to the days we could go to their movie theater for 9 cents some 35 years ago. A warm thanks to them and to you. Barbara Tallaferro, NaplesLocal to preside at meetingMrs. Leo Wotitzky of Punta Gorda will preside at the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs District 9 meeting on Oct. 10 in Fort Myers.

He not only enjoyed an afternoon off from school, but he got up in the air about the whole thing. Joseph has always had an avid inter est in ying. Before he was through the edging yer program, he soloed not only one airplane, but three. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, Joseph had to be at least 16 years old. In Sept. 1972, under the guidance of instructor Ed Borsch, the young pilot set about the rudiments of learning, which made his ying birthday yester day a success. He took off at precisely the moment he was ofcially 16 years of age (at 1 p.m.) and may have created a record. His father, Thomas Joseph Sr., owns a Cessna 170 and Joseph accompanied his father frequently. With his primary amount of ying time on the Cessna 150, the younger Joseph soloed that plane rst, followed with the Cessna 72 and his fathers Cessna 170. Earl Henry, owner and chief ight instructor of Intercoastal Aviation at the county airport, was full of praise. Now, the youngster plans to obtain his private pilots license in the next two years. At the very least, his birthday will be one to remember for a long time to come.Boy Scout Troop 33 presents plaque to bankScout Troop 33 of Harbour Heights presented a plaque to First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Charlotte County in appreciation of a Merit Book Library of 125 books provided to the boys use.

Once Upon A Child is also hiring for new positions that will be available once the store is open for sales.Parkers Flowers and GiftsAfter relocating to Village Marketplace in 2013, business has been blooming for Parkers Flowers and Gifts.

Dont be a butt sucker, said Clark.Miriams Hair GalleryMiriam Cano used to be a barber in New York. Having been the owner of three different salons, she eventually relocated to Florida and began working for a hair-cutting franchise.

I love my job, said Cano, who opened her new salon at Village Marketplace in March. The full-service salon provides everything from color to cuts for men, women and children. Cano, who is now a cosmetologist, specializes in up-dos and also offers makeovers. Free consultations are available.

For the rest of September, haircuts are only $9.99.Nail Envy SpaAfter taking over ownership from the previous nail salon at Village Marketplace in July, Nail Envy Spa is setting itself apart from the competition. The most important things to us are cleanliness, safety, and customer satisfaction, said manager TC. While many nail technicians have their own set of tools and sterilize them after each customer, Nail Envy Spa sterilizes at least 100 sets of tools each night to ensure that there is always a clean supply the next day. Similar to the instruments in a dentists ofce, the tools are sealed in a package which is not opened until it is brought to the customer. Implements such as buffers, scrubs, and les are disposed of after each use. As a part of customer satisfaction, Nail Envy Spa makes sure that all of their technicians speak English in order to properly communicate with their customers. To bring peace of mind, LED is used instead of UV in their dryers and gel lights. The spa has more than 200 color choices of OPI Brand polish and gel polish. Customers can also choose from three levels of service to best suit their needs express, regular, and deluxe. We dont believe in having people pay for something they dont want or need, said TC.

This year is no different, as I will be joined by Tarpon senior Emily Bodnar. Often seen on stage at the Charlotte Performing Arts Center, a place she jokingly calls her second home, Bodnar is an active member of the schools drama program, Troupe 0922, and has been inducted into the International Thespian Society. In fact, shell be taking the stage tonight (Sept. 26) to perform alongside Tarpon drama, band and choral students during the schools annual Side by Side show. When she isnt practicing her lines, Bodnar is perfecting her writing skills. She is a member of the CHS creative writing and book clubs, and she has already written a fantasy novel, entitled Stay out of the Woods, which she plans to keep on her personal bookshelf for the time being. Currently, the 17-year-old is working through her second book, called The Chosen Immortals, which she hopes to publish by graduation. Also, she is a member of the Suncoast Writers Guild, which meets monthly at the Elsie Quirk Library in Englewood. Outside of literature, Bodnar enjoys hanging out with friends and watching her favorite sports football and soccer. A former soccer player, Bodnar enjoys cheering on her 12-year-old brother, Eric, who is on a local competitive soccer team. Upon graduation, Bodnar plans to major in English and minor in journalism. Her dream job is to be a writer, whether that means having her books picked up by publishing houses or covering a beat for the local newspaper. Writing for the Punta Gorda Herald and some of the Sun s other publications will be her rst step in this direction, and we are delighted to welcome her to our ofces. If you have any story tips or ideas you would like to speak with Bodnar about, send her an email at ebodnar@ sun-herald.com. I hope you will all join me in welcoming Bodnar as the newest member of the Sun family.New intern joins PGH team Pamela Staik PGH EditorPamela Staik is the editor of the Punta Gorda Herald.

Friday, September 26, 2014 Herald Page 7 Do you remember when?FROM OUR ARCHIVES Janine Smith 40 Years AgoJanine Smith writes about Punta Gordas historic past. Contact her at janinehs1@ comcast.net. The following are excerpts from the Daily Herald-News from Sept. 21, 1974, through Sept. 27, 1974:Public Safety Building on Airport Road taking shapeCharlotte Countys new Public Safety Building on the Airport Road site is taking shape. It will be ready for occupancy on schedule, by June 1, 1975, Sheriff Jack Bent told Punta Gorda Rotarians this week. The total project cost will be approximately $1.3 million. Bent mentioned that the utility cost for the new jail will be higher than at the existing facility. The same number of personnel will be employed. Funding for the project is being provided entirely by racetrack taxes paid to the state.Superfish reduce aquatic weed problem in lakesState ofcials say ve years of research has convinced them that they have found a good method to attack the aquatic weed problem in Floridas lakes. State biologists say the white amur, nicknamed supersh because of its voracious appetite, has been doing an excellent job of eating the weed hydrilla in smaller lakes. Now, they want to move the supersh into larger bodies of water. The Natural Resources Department wishes to release the sh into lakes up to 5,000 acres in size. Hydrilla is becoming an increasing and expensive problem in Florida. Winter Park spends more than $150,000 a year on chemicals in order to get rid of the weed. White amurs look like large, silver carp.In the service Fireman William D. Harper has returned from a six-month deployment in the Middle East. He sailed back on the destroyer escort USS Paul. While overseas, he participated in training exercises involving U.S. ships and units of the French and British navies. Harper is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy F. Harper of Star Route A, Punta Gorda, and his wife, Karen, resides in Punta Gorda. Army Spc. Charles Platt is serving with the 30th Infantry Division in Schweinfurt, Germany. He is a rieman in Company C, 1st Battalion of the divisions 30th Infantry. Platt is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Willie Platt of Charlotte Avenue, Punta Gorda.Letter to the EditorDear Editor: It was with a great deal of interest that I read about the Charlotte County Youth Museums move into the old library building in Punta Gorda. Having moved away from Punta Gorda, I had not kept up with the progress. The idea originated with Peggy Desguin (Mrs. Victor Desguin.) She had seen a similar project at Florida State University, Tallahassee. She talked about it full of enthusiasm to us. Any place to begin would do, and we started with a suitcase museum, containing mainly fossil collections. Extra and special thanks should go to Peggy and Vic Desguin for their interest and perseverance. The Desguins have contributed much to the youth of Charlotte County for as long as I can remember. That goes back to the days we could go to their movie theater for 9 cents some 35 years ago. A warm thanks to them and to you. Barbara Tallaferro, NaplesLocal to preside at meetingMrs. Leo Wotitzky of Punta Gorda will preside at the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs District 9 meeting on Oct. 10 in Fort Myers.

The Edison Garden Club of Fort Myers is in charge of local arrangements. Youthful pilots unique birthdayThomas Joseph Jr. of Vasco Street, Punta Gorda, celebrated his 16th birthday yester day. He not only enjoyed an afternoon off from school, but he got up in the air about the whole thing. Joseph has always had an avid interest in ying. Before he was through the edging yer program, he soloed not only one airplane, but three. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, Joseph had to be at least 16 years old. In Sept. 1972, under the guidance of instructor Ed Borsch, the young pilot set about the rudiments of learning, which made his ying birthday yesterday a success. He took off at precisely the moment he was ofcially 16 years of age (at 1 p.m.) and may have created a record. His father, Thomas Joseph Sr., owns a Cessna 170 and Joseph accompanied his father frequently. With his primary amount of ying time on the Cessna 150, the younger Joseph soloed that plane rst, followed with the Cessna 72 and his fathers Cessna 170. Earl Henry, owner and chief ight instructor of Intercoastal Aviation at the county airport, was full of praise. Now, the youngster plans to obtain his private pilots license in the next two years. At the very least, his birthday will be one to remember for a long time to come.Boy Scout Troop 33 presents plaque to bankScout Troop 33 of Harbour Heights presented a plaque to First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Charlotte County in appreciation of a Merit Book Library of 125 books provided to the boys.

Herald Page 8 Friday, September 26, 2014 Along with camaraderie, membership in the club provides members with feedback for their work, workshops and other events, such as a monthly open mic at Fishermens Village, 1200 W. Retta Esplanade. These are held on the second Monday of the month in the Center Stage area at 6:30 p.m. Members often read their work, but anyone member or not can read, sing, play guitar or harmonica, or otherwise entertain the crowd. Sometimes the writers group brings in special guests to speak or read at meetings or special events. These are usually published writers with a following, writers that members would not otherwise have the opportunity to hear. On Sept. 29, the group is bringing Laura McCullough from New York. She will read some of her work, answer questions and hold a book signing. Shell be in the auditorium on the Charlotte campus of FSW from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Pelot teaches English composition, English literature and creative writing at the campus. He typically requires his freshmen students to attend two events of the Peace River Center for Writers. In this way, they are exposed to the work of other writers in a dynamic way attending a reading or lecture, rather than simply reading their work. The PRCW accepts as members all types of writers, including those who have been published and those who have not. Their current emphasis is on poetry, said Pelot. The group recently started its own book press under the name of Peace River Press. They intend to publish one book per year and have published two authors to date. Authors are chosen for publication by the board of directors. The rst was Carol Mahlers book of poetry, How Do I Follow? Carol was an easy choice, Pelot said. She is a board member who writes beautiful poetry. For the second book to be published, the board wanted to reward someone from the community. Carl Parrot, a former policeman, wrote Florida Cracker Tales, Poetry and Prose by a Florida Native, which is about growing up in Fort Lauderdale. He was 82 when his book was published. In the near future, we hope to publish an anthology of our members poetry, said Pelot. Dues to join the club are $10 for high school and college students; $35 for individuals; $50 for a family member ship, which includes all children; $100 for businesses and $500 for corporate sponsors. Fishermens Village has been a continuing sponsor and also allows the group to hold events on site. To join, visit www.peaceriverwriters. com, print out and complete the registration form and mail it with payment to the Peace River Center for Writers at Florida SouthWestern State College, 26300 Airport Road, Punta Gorda, FL 33950.

Friday, September 26, 2014 Herald Page 13 PUNTA GORDA PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG H H H school buzz In a day and age where many school art programs are falling by the wayside, some schools are taking a proactive approach to safeguarding the future of art for youth. One of them is Charlotte Academy, a private school in Port Char lotte, that has partnered with the Visual Arts Center, 210 Maud St., Punta Gorda, in an effort to provide instruction for the schools Montessori elementary students. Each quarter, Charlotte Academys youngest elementary students will attend a class at the center as part of the art curriculum. Four primary art subjects will be taught, and the children will receive a different lesson each time they visit throughout the school year. As everyone arrived at the VAC for the rst set of classes on Sept. 3, it was clear that the students werent the only ones feeling the excitement. I just think its wonderful, said Debby DeSimio, a teacher at Charlotte Academy. The children love art and to expose them to so many mediums is going to be amazing. She continued, Children have so much potential, and the Montessori philosophy and method of education just embraces that. I have a passion for teaching, and my kids have a passion for learning. I think that this just plays right into it. Diana Reinhard, instructor at the Visual Arts Center, was also feeling the excitement. Reinhard used to teach science to grade-school and college-level students. On this day, she wanted to combine her love of making jewelry with science to create something special for the Charlotte Academy students. Using her imagination, Reinhard created a makeshift beach and gulf by setting a sand box on top of a blue table. Each child took a turn using a sifter to search through the sand until they were able to nd something. Soon, everyone in the class had found a sharks tooth. Reinhard then instructed them on how to wire it onto a necklace. Im a former classroom teacher, but Ive never worked with this age level, said Reinhard. Its a new adventure. Other adventures throughout the day included basket weaving with Annette Keohane, where students learned the proper techniques to complete a partially nished basket. Also, Howard Hartke taught the children how to paint pottery that he red and sanded in preparation for the class. Sandy Busher, another art instructor, introduced her students to the art of zen doodle. By repetitively drawing patterns on a sheet of paper, this art form can be a way to relax and clear the mind. The end result is an abstract work of art that boosts artistic condence and proves that everyone has the power to be creative. Craig Olson, the new head of school at Charlotte Academy, collaborated with Mary Ann Tipton, executive director of the VAC, to develop an art curriculum for the lower elementary-level students. Were so excited about bringing the students here, Tipton said. A lot of the parents in private schools are interested in more than whats called STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). So we believe in STEAM, where the A is for art. The students will be immersed in art with our instructors. The decision to partner with Charlotte Academy was easy, said Thalia St. Lewis, the president of the board of directors for the VAC. Part of our mission is to involve young people in the arts, St. Lewis said. We have a summer camp program for the children, but this is something that is going to continue throughout the year, and were very excited about that. Looking around as the students took lessons from local artists, Olson said he is thrilled by the new partnership. Were giving kids the oppor tunity to do some things that we couldnt possibly replicate in the schoolhouse, he said. To bring the students here, to work directly with the artists and to get familiar with the Visual Arts Center is great. Its a community resource. In February, the students will receive a special group lesson on abstract art and how to paint like Jackson Pollock. The students artwork will then be featured in an exhibit held at the VAC during the month of May. For more information on Charlotte Academy, visit www.charlotteacademy.com.

Hartke red and sanded the sculp tures prior to the class, which were then painted by the students. Instructor Annette Keohane shows Amelie Olarte the proper way to weave a basket. Each child was given a partially completed basket with instructions on how to nish it on their own.

The content associated with this page is part of grading requirements for Kelli Lipes yearbook class. Send feedback to tarponbuzz@ gmail.com. PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG H H H TARPON PAGE Drama department looks forward to active yearBy JACQUELINE VAN DER MEULENCHS JUNIORCheryl Waal has led the thespians at Charlotte High School ever since she joined the Tarpon staff in 2006. Although all CHS students are invited to join Troupe 0922, becoming a member of the International Thespian Society is not an easy feat. To become a member of the thes pian association, you have to rst join your high school troupe, and you have to earn 10 points to be eligible to join the actual International Thespian Society, explained Waal. These points can be achieved in numerous ways, including attending club meetings, performing at districts and participating in plays and musi cals. Students recently learned what this years musical is and they are eager to begin rehearsals. Oh, my literal god, gushed Brielle Collands, Troupe 0922s president. Jesus Christ Superstar. The rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar will be performed at CHS in early February. Students will be in rehearsal and promoting the excitement for the event. They always invite the community to come see Tarpon talent. Another event that is rapidly approaching is district assessment. Weve got one of the largest districts in Florida, Waal said. I believe there are 32 schools registered to our district. Each year, around the month of October, the theater clubs of District Six, which includes Troupe 0922 at CHS, come together to perform scenes and musical pieces while participating in theater tech events, like costume design and directing. Im always so proud of my students, because theyre proud of themselves Im proud of their pride, Waal said with a smile.Blue Crew spreads school spiritBy TYRA DROUILLARDCHS SOPHOMOREAt Charlotte High School, there is one group of cheerers and screamers who attend every sporting event the people who will stay outside to support their team in all sorts of weather. This group is called Blue Crew, and it is a group steeped in tradition. Every year, hundreds of students join. It is sponsored by Angela Nolan, who is the teacher of the Health Opportunities through Physical Education class and serves as the girls weightlifting coach. I think that school spirit is a big part of being a Tarpon. In fact, its tradition. I like feeling that I can bring a spirited environment to the school, Nolan said. Blue Crew is a way to be a part of that. Students are known to go full-out in color for the games. Nolan said she loves it when the fans really embrace school spirit. It allows our fans to really be a part of something big, Nolan said. Robert Oettinger is a 15-year-old sophomore at CHS. Oettinger joined for the free admission to all sporting events. There are seven home football games this year. Student entry is $5 a game, which ends up costing $35 for just going to the home football games. Being a member of the club denitely helps students save money, he said. (I joined) because I get free admissions to every sporting event, and its great for the school, Oettinger said. Any student can join Blue Crew. Key Club gives back to school, communityBy LAUREN SKEOCHCHS SENIORKey Club has been a part of Charlotte High School for many years. It is run by Emily Klossner, who is not only a teacher at CHS, but a proud Tarpon graduate. I was in Key Club when I went to school here, she said. I was the vice president, president and then vice president my senior year. So its kind of a full-circle thing. My father is a Kiwanian, which is our parent organi zation, and he is our Kiwanis advisor. The club is not just one that focuses on the community, but it focuses on the school, too. Key Club has done roadside cleanups, fundraising for the Eliminate Project, offering parking assistance for the Florida International Air Show, reading to children and countless other acts of philanthropy. These community and school-based service projects are all-volunteer, meaning the students are not getting paid to participate. They do, however, receive community service hours and make new friends. Being in Key Club assists students (in) getting their service-hour requirement for scholarships, explained Angelica Asperilla, Key Club president and a senior. Also, it helps students make new friends and connections throughout the community, and also develop a sense of pride for their school by giving back. Member Haley Blaine likes that the club is open to all grade levels. What I love about Key Club is that it is open to everyone and anyone, she said. It allows kids to socialize and make friends while serving the community and doing their part to give back. Its so rewarding. Key Club has many goals and its members are looking forward to a great year. The executive board plans to increase club membership and continue to help with the Eliminate project this year.News from Charlotte High School HERALD PHOTO BY TYRA DROUILLARDAngie Nolan, who has been teaching at Charlotte High School for 20 years, is ready for another spirited Tarpon year.
