AND WEEKLY HERALDCALL US AT 941-206-1000 The Department of Commerce released gures this week that showed the housing recovery continuing to bound upward. Sales of new single-family houses in August 2014 were at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 504,000, according to estimates released by the U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The gure is 18 percent above the July rate of 427,000, and is 33 percent above the August 2013 estimate of 379,000. According to the report, The median sales price of new houses sold in August 2014 was $275,600. The median sales price for existing homes in Charlotte County was $139,900 in August 2014, 3 percent lower than in August 2013, according to Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Regional Economic Indicators report released Wednesday. New home sales are linked closely to new permits issued, which increased in Charlotte by 22.4 percent to 60 in August 2014 over the same period in 2013, according to the FGCU report. Charlottes share of the growing housing market continues to trail well behind neighboring counties. Lee County issued 241 permits, up slightly from a year earlier; while Collier issued 180 permits, a 29 percent spike over August 2013. Statewide, new permits issued stayed above 5,000 for the third straight month, according to the University of Floridas Bureau of Economic and Business Research. For the month that ended Aug. 31, single-family permits were at compared to last August, but multifamily permits rose 13.3 percent. Due to the size of multifamily projects, the number of permits issued is extremely volatile. Year-over-year changes within the last year ranged from a loss of 58.16 percent to a gain of 175.1 percent, according to a BEBR report issued Thursday. The FGCU report, compiled monthly by the Regional Economic Research Institute at the Lutgert College of Business, also showed ongoing strength in the tourism industry, with tourist tax revenues in July 2014 up 19 percent over July 2013. Allegiant Air continues to contribute to that visitor growth, as the passenger count at the Punta Gorda Airport grew 64 percent in July 2014 to 53,826. According to gures released by the airport operator Charlotte County Airport Authority last week, the passenger count fell in August to 38,744, but the percentage increase over the prior year was 73 percent. The airport likely will break through the 500,000 passenger mark for the year. Through Aug. 30, a total of 448,392 passengers have passed through the airport in 2014, up 127 percent over the same period in 2013. The passenger count includes arrivals and departures, so the actual number of people coming and going is about half that gure. Not all of them stay in Charlotte County, which represents an opportunity for economic and tourism development here. Lee generated $2.7 million in bed taxes in July, and Collier $1.6 million. Thats a lot of people staying and playing within a short drive of Charlotte County, including a signicant number who begin their trips here. In last weeks column, the location of a property in the Bocilla Beach to Bay development was incorrectly identied. The development is on Don Pedro Island.

Keisha Leann Clarke, 36, of Port Charlotte, was pronounced dead by Charlotte County medical personnel shortly after 6 a.m. soon after the accident occurred. She had been walking in the southbound lanes on U.S. 41 near Pinetrail Road, about a mile north of Notre Dame Boulevard when she was struck by the left side mirror of a heavy-duty GMC pickup driven in the right lane by Matthew Ryan Krejci, 29, of Englewood, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The FHP investigators noted in their report that it was dark out, the road was not lit, and Krejci did not see the pedestrian in the roadway. The driver was not charged. Neither Krejci nor his passenger Juan Carlos Ruiz Jimenez, 35, also of Englewood was injured. Authorities did not allow media to talk to the men at the crash scene. Since a death was involved in the accident, FHP Lt. Greg Bueno said the investigation will remain open and could take about two months to Pedestrian killed on 41By ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERPassenger traffic soars at Punta Gorda AirportKILLED | 5 Flights take off PUNTA GORDA Increased revenue from soaring passenger traffic at the Punta Gorda Airport has officials smiling. The latest airport records show passenger counts have surpassed last years total by more than 34 percent in just the first eight months of 2014. A total of 448,392 passengers traveled through the airport between January and August, compared with 333,611 passengers in all of 2013. The news is welcome relief for the airport after suffering a major blow from the demise of Direct Air, which had been the main carrier in Punta Gorda before declaring bankruptcy in 2012.

Featured EventsPAID ADVERTISEMENTS Approved an ordinance extending the suspension of nontransportation impact fees for an indefinite period. Since 2008, due to the recessions impact on the new-construction industry, Charlotte County suspended its impact fees, with the exception of transportation impact fees, which are intended to fund growth. The morato rium on nontransportation impact fees had been set to sunset automatically on Sept. 30. YES YES YES YES YESApproved a utility operational audit for Charlotte County Utilities with KPMG LLP of Orlando, at a not-to-ex ceed amount of $249,650 for the contractual services and a not-to-exceed amount of $24,400 for the reimbursement of travel expenses. Project objectives include a review of CCUs day-to-day operations and procedures. KPMG will perform a high-level assessment of CCU operations, and will identify key risk areas to help ensure county resources are used in an efficient and timely manner. There is a 90-day completion time for the audit. Funding for this expenditure comes from the CCU Operating and Maintenance Fund and the General Fund. YES YES YES YES YESApproved five ordinances adopting revisions to the countys Comprehensive Plan. The Smart Charlotte 2050 Comprehensive Plan was adopted July 20, 2010, and became effective June 15, 2011. During the imple mentation of the plan, however, officials said it became apparent that some policies needed to be revised in order to better guide redevelopment and future development within the county. The County Commission approved these revisions June 24, for transmittal to the Department of Economic Opportunity for review. The DEO had no comment. YES YES YES YES YESApproved a change to the design contract for Harbor Boulevard improvements, resulting in a $26,980 increase, for a revised total cost of $552,485. This contract is with Johnson Engineering to design improvements on Harbor Boulevard, from U.S. 41 to Olean Boulevard, within the Parkside Community Redevelopment Area. Funding for this expenditure comes from the Utility System Capital Improvement/Road Projects Debt Fund. YES ABSTAIN YES YES YESApproved a change in the contract with Giffels-Webster Engineers for the design of various pedestrian pathway and safety improvements, including a 10-foot-wide multiuse pathway, along the south section of Placida Road, from the Cape Haze Development to the Boca Grande Causeway. The amendments are to allow Charlotte County Utilities to add a reclaimed water line to the project. The first change is for the amount of $177,605; the second amendment is for the amount of $269,990. Originally, this project called for the widening of the northern section of Placida Road from two to four lanes, between Rotonda Boulevard West and Cape Haze Drive. However the county decided not to pursue the expansion of Placida Road. Funding for this project is from CCU Connection Fees, and Renewal and Replacement Funds. YES YES YES YES YESCHARLOTTE COUNTY COMMISSION HOW THEY VOTED TUESDAY BILL TRUEX District 3 KEN DOHERTY District 1 CHRIS CONSTANCE District 2 TRICIA DUFFY District 5 STEPHEN R. DEUTSCH District 4 MURDOCK Earlier this month, a public outcry erupted over a 35 percent increase in the cost to install sewers in the East and West Spring Lake area, a mandated septics-to-sewers project already steeped in controversy but yet to begin construction. Charlotte County Utilities Director Terry Couture explained that the updated price estimate $4 million more than projected, to bring the total cost to $21 million is due largely to higher-than-expected bids being received on all construction projects countywide. In an improved economy with much more work available, she explained contractors no longer are forced to underbid themselves just to land a job. However an increase in the scope of the Spring Lake sewer project was another factor leading to the upsurge in cost, said Bruce Bullert, CCU engineering services manager. It recently was discovered that the vacuum sewer system planned for most of the project area couldnt be extended into the southern section along Edgewater Drive and Harbor Boulevard, because of canal constraints, he said. The physical barriers of the canals prohibit extending the vacuum system out there, he said. Consequently, traditional gravity sewer ser vice would be used, covering about 25 percent of the affected 2,400 lots. Bullert explained that gravity sewer pipes are more expensive to put in than the vacuum system, because they have to be laid deeper, affecting roadways to a greater degree. They create a little bit more of a construction obstacle, he said. In conjunction, Bullert said this was an opportune time to do a needed upgrade in the adjacent area already served by sewers, where the connections to the new gravity system will be made. Consequently, it was decided to tear out the existing water mains, replacing them with the larger pipes needed for greater capacity, he said. Moreover, there have been other add-ons to the project, such as laying a new reclaimed water line down Port Charlotte Boulevard, which will connect to the reclaimed pipe now being placed along Elkcam Boulevard. Also, the pumping station on Higgs Drive, just west of Harbor Boulevard, will be upgraded to handle the demands of the expanded gravity sewer service. Most of these additional costs, Bullert said, would be paid from CCU capital funds. For the rest of the sewer project, residents are paying about $10,000 each over a 20-year period to an East & West Spring Lake Wastewater MSBU. There is no reason the $10,000 figure will change, Bullert said. Were not going to increase the assessments. County Commission Chairman Ken Doherty echoed these assur ances, saying he would not support raising the assessments already placed on Spring Lake property owners, regardless of project cost. I will not vote for it, he said. We have to think of bringing other money in, or come up with a different methodology. Bids are expected to be put out in November, with construction to begin after the first of the year.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comSpring Lake sewer cost, project growBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITER | COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFSSusan G.

The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 C Our Town Page 3 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS The Englewood man who stabbed his friends pit bull which had to be euthanized has been sentenced to six months in jail. Derek Armiger, 28, was awaiting trial on a pair of animal cruelty charges related to the December incident, but a plea deal was reached this week. After Charlotte County Animal Control reported the sentence via Facebook, a commenter under the name Ashley Niles posted: Finally, justice for our family I will never understand what you (did) to my dog, I just hope God will do his part. A Facebook page called Justice for Bruin has about 250 likes. According to Animal Control reports, Armiger severely stabbed Bruin during the late evening hours of Dec. 27, 2013, while he was watching the dog in Englewood for a friend. Bruin had mauled Armigers dads Chihuahua, and Armiger was upset because when he called Animal Control they told him they wouldnt respond right away to check it out. Ofcers claimed the pit bull was secured after the mauling, and no longer was an immediate threat, so they said theyd be by in the morning. Armiger couldnt wait that long. Per his sentence, Armiger will serve two years of probation after his jail term for which he has been granted 106 days of credit for time served, according to Charlotte County court records. He also will be required to complete anger management classes, do 300 hours of community service, and pay more than $2,000 for Bruins medical bills after the stabbing. He also cannot own any pets. Armiger was convicted on a battery charge last month for beating up his girlfriend because he reportedly was upset she took some prescription medication he was using to get high. Armiger was sentenced to three months in jail in that case, but served less than a month because he was given credit for time served.Area man gets jail for dog stabbingSTAFF REPORT BRUIN ARMIGER PORT CHARLOTTE A 13-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl were arrested after they broke into a house to have sex, according to a Charlotte County Sheriffs report. A deputy responded Sept. 20 to a past burglary at a home on Kinderkemac Avenue. While questioning neighbors, the deputy learned that a middle school student who was having a sleepover the night before got a knock on her door from a boy she knew from school. The boy told her that his male friend was across the street with a girl and the two were going to go inside and have sex. The children all knew one another from Murdock Middle School, and investigators questioned other students there this week. The two allegedly involved in the burglary were arrested at the school Thursday. They were charged with theft, in addition to burglary of an unoccupied dwelling.

Although she has been a member of First Presbyterian for 50 years, she says, on occasion, she enjoys going to other churches. I think its good to have different faith experiences, she said. Its something I have always believed in. When she rst heard Chosen at St. Mary, she said it was an uplifting experience she could not forget. When her son Ronnie died, Dottie told the Rev. Donald Buck, pastor, that she wanted Chosen to sing at his memorial service. Buck has a strong musical background, and immediately recognized that Chosen has something special to offer. When we did the memorial service together, I formed a close bond with Pastor Isaac Thomas (who leads St. Mary). After hearing Chosen, I got the idea of having them at our 8:30 service. I proposed a joint venture of faith sharing and music, he said. That started a few weeks ago, and it continues to attract more people as word spreads. I believe we need more diversity, and it turned out to be a perfect t, Buck added. According to church members, the black gospel group has infused the service with pure joy. While the traditional Presbyterian service is sedate and conservative, the new worship service with Chosen is more spirited. With the uplifting music, parishioners often stand up and clap, or just nod their heads to the rhythm. I dont have to dig up excitement. Chosen brings excitement and a different kind of freedom to a service, Buck said. They seem to give us permission to stand up and praise God. According to parishioner Betty Smith, its the music and the freedom of the pastor to let loose, that makes the service special. I work all week, and I cant wait for Sunday morning. Its just what I need, she said. Her daughter, Christie Smith, echoes those sentiments. Its a very special service and a special place to be, Christie said. The only word for it is awesome. Listening to how his church members use the word amazing to describe Chosen, the pastor said he thought about asking the church to add this summary to the name of the church: An amazing place for amazing grace. Thats what we are. When Chosen sings songs of praise, he sings right along, adding to the joyful music. Buck noted that choir members memorize all music. They practice, practice, and practice more, he said, adding that when he left at 10 p.m. Thursday after practicing with them, the choir stayed behind to practice some more. After the Sunday morning service, people make a point of talking with choir members to express their appreciation for the music. Its very moving, elder Dick Woodhull said. God brought them here. Chosens director, Anna Callwood, said the choir loves the opportunity to sing in the Port Charlotte church, calling it mutually benecial. Our goal is to be a community church serving the Parkside community, Buck said. This is just one of the ways we are doing that.HERALDSFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY PATTIE MIHALIKAnna Callwood, director of the Chosen Choir, receives congrat ulations from Dick Woodhull after a Sunday morning perfor mance. Church members lined up to express their appreciation of the lively gospel music.with an $8 million expansion project that proposes tripling the size of the airports sole terminal. Things are definitely improving, Charlotte County Airport Authority Executive Director Gary Quill said. For visitors, the Punta Gorda Airport is a hidden jewel. Punta Gorda has an air port? Naples resident Dale Thiel remembered thinking when her daughters friend asked for a ride to the airport. Thiel and her daughter Julia were in the terminal this week waiting for the friends Allegiant Air flight to Asheville, N.C., to depart. We usually go through Fort Myers, but this is great, the mother said. You pull up, unload and youre done. Airport officials point to a rebounding economy and the dramatic expansion of destinations offered by Allegiant the airports lone commercial carrier for the boost in business. In addition to an uptick in passenger traffic, the airport also has seen an increase in revenue from long-term parking, car rentals and commercial leases. If you think about it, 400,000 (plus) people spending only $50 at each visit thats over $20 million, said Punta Gorda City Councilman Tom Cavanaugh, who serves as the councils liaison to the Airport Authority. Thats a tremendous benefit to the economy. In just two and a half years, Allegiant has increased its menu of destinations to the city sevenfold, making Punta Gorda among the fastest-growing airports its size in the country. Allegiant now flies from Punta Gorda to 20 separate destinations. The increase in traffic also serves as the impetus behind a massive expansion that would increase the terminals size from 16,000 to about 50,000 square feet. This summer, the Federal Aviation Administration awarded the Punta Gorda Airport $5.7 million for the project, which calls for increasing the number of air gates from two to four, enhancing security areas, and making room for more ticket counters and a larger passenger waiting area. And recently, the Airport Authority signed off on a $10 million budget. The 2014-15 fiscal year spending plan represents an operating gain of roughly $822,000 over the previous year. Quill said the bulk of the gains is thanks to airline-related revenues is from the dramatic rise in passenger counts.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comAIRPORTFROM PAGE 1 complete ofcially.

The city paid $2.75 million plus closing costs to acquire the property from Sarasota County, and, during a special meeting Thursday night, also agreed to pay the countys half of the outstanding property taxes to move the acquisition process along. City commissioners also unanimously agreed on a year-long management agreement with Martin County, Fla.-based National and State Park Concessions to continue acting as the Springs operator. The contract was for the cost of $579,360, or $48,280 a month, and keeps State Park operating in the same capacity as it was prior to the expiration of its previous short-term contract on Aug. 31, when the day spa closed. The contract can be terminated by either party with a 90day written notice, with or without cause. City commissioners unanimously agreed to renew the contract after waiving the procurement process to take the operation contract out for public bid, another effort to get the Springs reopened as soon as possible. State Park president Jack Bobo said he was excited to have another opportunity to manage the Springs, and planned to be on-site today to make sure the reopening goes smoothly.Email: dwinchester@sun-herald.comSprings to reopen todayBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITEROPEN FOR BUSINESSThe Warm Mineral Springs Day Spa will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

Our Town Page 6 C The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 RELIGION NEWS A good friend spent the summer visiting relatives and friends in several northern states. Knowing that I was from Ohio, when he returned he brought me a small gift purchased at the Warther Museum in Dover, Ohio. The museum sells ne cutlery created by Ernest Warther, the family patriarch. It also displays a wonderful assortment of ne wood carvings by Warther. One carving Warther created still is made on-site today by family members, and is sold as a souvenir. Using a small piece of wood 3 inches long and 12-inch square, a family artisan needs only nine cuts in nine seconds to carve the small block into what opens into a pair of miniature pliers. After opening the small wooden pair of pliers, I told my friend, I dont think I could get much of a grip on anything with this. However I will use them to leapfrog to 2 Thessalonians 2:1-15, where Paul writes about the second coming of Christ. Rejecting rumors that Christ already had come back, Paul declares that the man of lawlessness must be revealed before Jesus returns (see verses 1-5). In verses 9-12, Paul warns: The coming of the lawless one will be in accord with how Satan works. All sorts of power through signs and wonders will deceive those who will perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. After that warning, Paul thanks God for the brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, whom He chose to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and belief in the truth. Theyve been called through the Gospel to share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ (verses 13-14). Those who stand rm and hold fast to the teachings Paul passed on to us (verse 15), will be saved when Christ returns. If current events are harbingers of the arrival of the lawless one, then wed be wise to get a grip on Gods promise of eternal life. The Rev. Larry Armbrust, a retired United Methodist Florida Conference pastor, lives in Port Charlotte. Email him at pastorlwa2@ Fabric of Our Faith: Get a grip Larry Armbrust Fundraiser to help area residentLocal Modern Woodmen of America members are sponsoring a fundraiser for North Port resident Lorraine Chaires from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. today at First Baptist Church of El Jobean, 4282 Commercial St. The benefit, which will include a yard and bake sale and other food, will assist Chaires, who was injured on the job, with medical and other expenses.

The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 C Our Town Page 7 RELIGION NEWS I have made the earth, and created man on it. I, even My hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded. (Isaiah 45:12)Christian beliefs are assaulted over and over again with what is thought to be the superior knowledge of man. Evolution, or the big bang theory, is accepted by many, thus dismissing God, who created all things and brought all things into existence by His word. We can ignore what the world believes, but Christians who have compromised the word of God are the ones who do the most harm. If you are saved by believing Gods word, but turn around and embrace what human intellect calls scientic knowledge over Gods word, you have compromised your faith. How is it possible to believe that God sent His Son into this world to die and reconcile man to God, and then decide we do not believe that God created all things? As seen in this verse, God speaks His truth (I have made the earth, and created man on it). Christians seem to think they have the option to believe or not to believe. If you have made Jesus Lord and Savior, you are no longer your own; you have been bought at a price. Your allegiance in all things is to God and His wisdom, which is found in the word. We must never forget what Satan did to Adam and Eve. On his own, Satan could do nothing, but Satan cunningly got Adam and Eve to doubt Gods word. Adam and Eve did not consider the repercussions of breaking Gods word. We must trust God, that there is a reason for everything and that His ways are higher than our ways. If you read the Bible and accept only what man can prove by knowledge, you are not walking by faith. Why does that put us in danger? The Bible tells us the just shall live by faith. Without faith, it is impossible to please God. Your salvation was based on faith in Gods word. We understand the value of knowledge in the natural, but the knowledge of God for spiritual matters must come from God and His word. We believed God by faith in the beginning for our salvation and for the end, our home in glory with the Lord. To get from the beginning to the end, you will have to walk in faith in the light of Gods word. Judy Onofri is a church elder at Fathers House Fellowship in North Port.

Our Town Page 8 C The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014


The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 C Our Town Page 9 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. Our Southwest Florida area is most often associated with the giant shing industry of yesteryear, but doing a little historical probing, one can learn of other early commercial enterprises. Some succeeded very well for a while but for various reasons gradually faded away and are almost forgotten. One such early Floridian commercial venture was the growing of pineapples. Pineapple historians tell us it is thought pineapples originated in Venezuela, worked their way through Central America and the Caribbean. It is known Columbus came upon them in the West Indies and took some back to Spain where they had never been seen. The Spaniards at rst referred to the fruit as the Pine of the Indies as they reminded them of pine cones. Pineapples eventually made their way to Florida. It is known they were rst grown commercially in our state in the 1860s in the Florida Keys on Plantation Key. After harvesting, the pines, as they were called, were loaded on sailing ships and shipped up the East Coast to places like New York where they became much in demand and were considered very exotic. Hawaii is so closely associated with pineapples one might presume pineapples were indigenous to Hawaii, that they traveled from there to the West Indies and Florida. Actually, the opposite is true. Surprisingly enough, it is recorded that pups, slips and suckers from pineapple plants were shipped from Florida to Hawaii in 1885 thus starting pineapple growing in Hawaii. In 1901, Jim Dole started what is now a world-famous operation, Dole Pineapple. U.S. Cleveland was a wellknown Charlotte County historian who had done a lot of research on early local pineapple growing. He once told me vintage pineapple records for the county were very sketchy. He said it was known at the height of production, during the years 1902-1917, our area in particular Punta Gorda was considered to be one of the leading suppliers of pineapples for the whole country. Locally, there was only one industry at the time more prominent, that was shing. Cleveland shared with me a letter that had come into his possession, a letter written in the early 1900s by a Punta Gorda man, named Byron Rhode, that mentions the pineapple business. Pineapples grown in that area were a large, fancy variety large as a gallon jug. The packers would leave space between them in crates and stuff in excelsior using a short stubby stick to pack it just tight enough to hold the fruit steady in place but not so hard as to bruise the fruit and make it unsalable. One of his best workers was a one-handed Negro man named Cleve Mays. His hand was cut off at the wrist and he used the stub of his arm instead of a stick to stuff the excelsior down. I though he would bruise his arm that way but he didnt. There was a small depot, just a loading platform known as Pineapple Junction, he said. The depot Rhode spoke of was built by the Florida Southern Railroad and was located in Solana, just east of what we now call downtown Punta Gorda. It was called the Pineapple Center because so many pineapples were shipped from there. In 1899 there were more than 1,300 acres of pineapples being grown state-wide. It is estimated there were at least 100 acres or more planted in Charlotte County. Most popular was a variety called The Smooth Cayenne which was known for its larger size. Supposedly, they could reach 20 pounds. Charlotte County records show in 1904 the Solana Pineries Company produced more than 2,000 crates of pines for a prot of $2,665, with each fruit going for about 20 cents apiece. The Gottfried farm in Englewood, part of which was located where Merchants Crossing shopping center is now, also grew pineapples. It was thought the Gottfrieds at one time might have had two acres of pines under cultivation. In 1908, Florida produced 1.1 million crates of pineapples, but there was a combination of serious problems approaching that would soon eliminate the Florida pineapple industry. The tariffs on imported Cuban pineapples were lifted. Florida couldnt compete with the cheaper prices of the imports that soon ooded the market. Mr. Flagler, builder of the new railroad that went down to the Keys to start picking up Cuban fruit in Havana by ship, transporting it to the Keys, then to his refrigerated train cars and shipping it quickly across the country. If that wasnt bad enough, the industry was hit by a serious freeze, then by a disease called red wilt and then the unavailability of fertilizer during to World War I. And so ended pineapple time in Florida. Englewoods Gottfried brothers switched to growing celery as other pineapple farmers also experimented with different crops. Fishing stayed the main industry along with citrus and cattle. Diana Harris writes a regular column for the Sun.

Our Town Page 10 C The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 Build Pot Place at Murdock VillageEditor: I have a perfect solution to get out from under the huge nancial burden of Murdock Village. Medical marijuana will soon be legal, followed by recreational use. Companies are already buying land and building for growing, packaging and distribution in Florida. It will generate hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars for the county. Dont let this opportunity slip by, like you are doing with public bus transportation. Commissioners, are you listening?Norm Rogers Port CharlotteMore nuclear energy neededEditor: Nuclear the best alternative energy source! Coal plants are the nations top source of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, the primary contributor for the rise in global warming currently predicted. In 2011, utility coal plants in the United States emitted a total of 1.7 billion tons of CO2. They also emit sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, particulate matter, mercury, lead, cadmium, other toxic heavy metals, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, arsenic, and trace amounts of uranium. Nuclear power plants are much less polluting. One hundred nuclear power generating plants are currently licensed. The largest of each prevents 7 million tons of CO2 that would otherwise be generated using coal. And there is no long list of additional pollutants. Spent nuclear fuel must be either reprocessed or buried. Ex-President Carter killed the reprocessing option and President Obama killed the burial option by shutting down the Yucca Mountain facility in Nevada. Since there is now no suitable, safe handling of spent fuel available, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has currently suspended licensing for any new plants. This last act by Obama is another nail in the cofn of nuclear power, an industry that we once dominated but are now winding down in all aspects while the rest of the world is picking it up. As our current nuclear plants retire, will we replace them with windmills and solar collectors or coal because that is the most abundant fuel source in the United States which is also economically viable?Peter Wohld Port CharlotteAlternate plan for Wildlife CenterEditor: I see Florida developers are as greedy as developers in Southern California. Instead of embracing the Peace River Wildlife Center for the asset it is, Grande Harbor Group is looking to use PRWC to extort favors from the city. The city must not change building height codes for one, as it will set a terrible non-reversible precedent. We just annexed approximately 200 acres on Jones Loop. Dedicate three-ve acres and this community will help PRWC move. Then enforce every building code on the books down to the letter for GHGs project.Mark Long Punta GordaA Top 10 in happinessEditor: Plenty to do here. Its just right! Happy and content. Is there a top 10 for that?Harry Josher North PortConstance was a big helpEditor: I had been trying to get a problem resolved for six months regarding standing water in my swale. After numerous calls to public works, I was told they had done all they could do. The last call ended with, You will just have to learn to deal with it. I accepted that perhaps they could do nothing else. After waiting awhile, I decided, no I will not just learn to deal with it. That is when I sent Commissioner Chris Constance an email with pictures of the standing water, explaining to him what had been done and what I was told. Not only did Commissioner Constance respond to my email, he also forwarded my email to several people. He stated that he would also follow up with public works. What I was not able to do in six months, Commissioner Constance did in a week and a half. This is exactly who we the voters need, a local voice. Someone who cares about Charlotte County, Port Charlotte, Parkside who wants to make the entire community a better place. That will benet us the community, not just me the politician. We have enough of that in Washington.Cathy S. White Port CharlotteContacts needed for mangrove informationEditor: Sundays editorial on altering mangroves rules lacks heavier nes for offenders and adjusts the trim code. We also need knowledge of local contacts, for information, inspection and reporting in Charlotte County There is a lack of publications or contact persons. I live in a community on the Peace River. More than a year back, the president of the association addressed a neighbor who wanted to cut down mangroves for a view. His advice was wrong. One of the handymen in the area backed the president and it became follow the leader. However, the landscape person declined the task and that ended the ill-advised information. I wanted my mangroves trimmed. To nd the authorized person was a task. The rst one was from Bradenton and was costly. The second one was from DeSoto County. Information should be readily available, and contact infor mation. During Hurricane Charley, I realized the impor tance of the mangroves for protection of the shorelines.Ernest Maresca Peace River ClubSkunk stink is in the airEditor: Blame my skepticism on the fact that I (very) recently relocated to the area after living in the most corrupt city (Chicago), in the most corrupt county (Cook) in the most corrupt state (of course, Illinois) for the past 30 years, but Id more likely blame fraud than incompetence regarding the Peace River Wildlife Centers predicament. This deal has skunk stink all over it. Id say a review of this incident by the proper arm of law enforcement is in order, wouldnt you? City leaders should not have the option of staying mum on the prickly subject. Too bad if the topic is uncomfortable for a lot of the key players. Make them answer the tough questions. And someone ought to be reviewing other land deals for similar mistakes.Suzanne Chevalier EnglewoodIndentured servitude in Charlotte CountyEditor: Charlotte County government has assumed the misguid ed role of General Development Corp. Building a countywide corporation on the backs of its citizens. Land deal after land deal that only benets corporate developers, leaving the citizens to maintain what was created for their prot. That spirit has never left Charlotte County, only the name has been changed to local government. Indenturing its citizens did not work for general development and will not work for Charlotte County.Don Monroe Port CharlotteEnough with stupid liberalsEditor: For those out there who think liberals are stupid, I would like to point out that studies repeatedly conrm liberalisms link to higher IQ, higher education, moderate temperament, open-mindedness, creativity, exibility, adaptability, environmental conscientiousness and progressive thinking. Conversely, conservatism has been repeatedly linked to bigotry, intolerance, inexibility, hypocrisy, conrmation bias, regressive-thinking, close-mindedness, lower IQ, lower education, unconcern for environmental destruction, incuriosity, poverty, crime, extremism and violence. This is not to say all liberals are smarter than all conservatives or that conservatism is inherently evil and liberalism is good. Not at all. But the correlations are there, backed by studies and conrmed in reality. Consider that many of the smartest, most creative and most inventive people in history have been more liberal-minded. Consider that America has historically fared better under liberal presidents and congresses. FDR brought us out of a conservative-created depression and Reagan nearly plunged us right back into another one. Bill Clinton brought about the longest lasting period of peacetime economic expansion in American history, which Bush immediately squandered.

Guess again. According to a survey by the U.S. Census Bureau, nearly 90 percent of all registered voters participated in the contest between Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama. 90 percent. Sure, the election was a very big deal. But, a Census Bureau analysis notes, Historically, the likelihood that an individual will actually vote once registered has been high, and 2008 was no exception. The number for 2008 was up slightly from 89 percent in the 2004 presidential election. And 85.5 percent in 2000 and 82 percent in 1996. The Census Bureau gures are, no doubt, on the high side. This was what people told Census workers, not necessarily what they actually did. And the study involved sampling, like a poll, so the accuracy rate is open to question. The actual numbers here were lower. In Sarasota County, turnout that year was 80 percent. In Charlotte County, it was 72 percent. But some of that differential can be tagged to the difculty of removing voters from registration rolls in Florida. The result is that our registration lists are invariably inated and turnout numbers deated. (For the record, McCain took 49.47 percent and Obama 49.37 percent in 2008 in Sarasota County. Charlottes tally was 52.54 percent McCain and 45.36 percent Obama). The Census Bureau study also showed a large gap in registration. Another way to look at the 2008 General Election, overall turnout represented only 64 percent of American citizens of voting age. Some 15 million who were registered voters simply didnt bother. But twice that number 30 million werent even registered. Their reasons? More than half said they werent interested or refused. Apathy. Six percent said they were too sick or disabled. Twelve percent werent registered because of eligibility issues ranging from residency requirements to felony convictions. (In Florida, which requires a special decree from the governor and Cabinet for ex-felons to regain voting rights, estimates are that between 600,000 and 1.5 million potential voters are thus disallowed.) Another 15 percent said they didnt make registration deadlines and 4 percent said they couldnt gure out the process. For them, especially: Monday, Oct. 6, is the registration deadline for the coming election. If you want to register, or know someone who is eligible, get moving. Call the supervisors ofce (941-743-1387 in Murdock, 941-833-5400 in Punta Gorda and 941-681-3717 in Englewood; 941-423-9440 in North Port and 941-681-3760 in Venice.) Someone will help explain the process and requirements. You also can go to the supervisors website, which walks you through the process. Another time, well address questions of general voter apathy in non-presidential elections. Another long-term voting analysis of worldwide legislative elections showed the United States ranked 138th in participation, behind Armenia and just ahead of Nigeria. Pretty sad.


The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 C Our Town Page 11 VIEWPOINT As our 10th birthday approaches, I cant help but reect on the changes in our role in this community and the continual opportunities before us. I know that the public enjoys our yellow bikes, admires our community gardens and smiles when they see our bicycle planters. Do they know about all the work our volunteers do behind the scenes? In addition to community projects and special events, Team volunteers are very active in the stewardship and development of this community. Thats what the 2005 Citizens Master Plan was all about, healthy economic development while preserving the character of our unique waterfront community. In the early days, post-Charley, we took an activist role to assist our community as it recovered. With professional advice, we produced the Citizens Master Plan and gifted it to the city. It was followed by the Waterfront Master Plan. Now we have land development regulations that protect those principles. We continue to develop partnerships within the private and public sectors by taking a seat at the table in many venues to help represent citizens and express our ideas. We do this work through strategic partnerships with existing organizations. We do not duplicate their efforts, nor do we have to be the lead. We support other community organizations by raising money for their projects and convening and facilitating their efforts. This only works when community groups share a common vision and a respect for each others efforts. One example of this facilitative approach to leadership will be evident in 2015 when we once again partner with Charlotte Habitat for Humanity to bring back Paint Your Heart Out Punta Gorda. This community service project gets homes painted by volunteers for residents who could use a hand. Last year, 200 volunteers painted nine houses and Blanchard House Museum in one day! This project will again bring together many community partners with the same goal. This is a great volunteer opportunity for snowbirds, as planning starts in October and the event is over by the end of March. Our joint project with the City of Punta Gorda, Bicycle Friendly Communities, is the ultimate collaborative effort. Partners include the Punta Gorda Police Department, the Punta Gorda Fire Department, Acme Bicycle Shop, Peace River Riders and the Charlotte County Health Department. Together we will launch a public education and bicycle safety campaign called Share the Lane. Help us celebrate our past, present and future, by joining us for an evening of dining and dancing at Team Turns Ten, Oct. 24, at the Charlotte Harbor Event Center. It will be an evening of great food and drink, music by the BoogieMen, auction items and other surprises. Visit www. to learn more and buy tickets. If you think youd like to share your talents with us and get involved in a Team initiative, wed love to talk to you. Please email the Team Punta Gorda ofce at team@teampuntagorda. org and someone will get in touch with you. Or, call 941-637-8326. For more information, visit our website, www. Nancy Johnson is the CEO of Team Punta Gorda. Readers may reach her at team@ with partners to get things done Nancy Johnson Well, alright, there are problems in D.C., but the real problems are at home, and in the words of Thomas P. ONeill Sr. (and passed down to his son Tip ONeill), All politics are local. Our Founding Fathers, in their innite wisdom, provided the 10th Amendment to our U.S. Constitution granting states sovereignty to protect the states from the overreach of the federal government. In a similar vein, local governments should exercise a degree of sovereignty in dealing with the states, and individuals should keep their proper perspective of sovereignty as well since our rights are granted by God our Creator, not from man, not from government. Following the introduction of the unconstitutional fourth branch of the federal government the Administrative Branch as stated by Senator McCarran of Nevada when presenting The Administrative Procedure Act of 1946, states exercising their sovereignty is among the most powerful steps that a state can take. The good news is that the Charlotte County commissioners and county administrator have recently responsibly taken at least baby steps to protect our rights in rejecting the earlier version of the Smart Charlotte 2050 Plan in favor of a somewhat similar plan that largely strips the regulations imposed by the federal government and leaving regulations in the hands of our state and local governments where they rightfully belong. In a similar small step in the right direction, the state effectively stripped the federal grasp from Common Core in the school systems. The bad news is that for every right decision made by our commissioners and administrator, there are several spending bills passed by the majority and expansion of local government payrolls that violate the guidelines of scal responsibility and sensibility. What gives them this authority? An embarrassingly low 16.86 percent primary voter turnout does. When we have reached this degree of complacency and voter apathy, incumbents reign and the loudest voices of disgust frequently belong to those who sat home and did nothing on Election Day. Weve seen the gures, and know that adding in MSBUs and MSTUs, Charlotte County is among the highest taxed of 67 counties in Florida, while remaining closer to the bottom regarding income level. Why are we reluctant to have our voices heard? Our nation was founded on the principles of being a government of, by, and for the people, yet by our complacency we are becoming a nation of people of, by and for the government. Since we elect to allow others to make the decisions about who represents us, how can we now hold our ofcials accountable? For starters, we must be actively engaged with our commissioners and other elected ofcials who govern us. Let your voice be heard about the issues that they are representing us on. Send letters and emails, make phone calls, attend public forums, or make appointments to meet with those representatives one on one. Dont communicate with them solely to rant on an issue, but get their attention with a positive approach and workable solutions. A great example of this would be to open the dialogue for privatizing government a concept encouraged by former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley who advised an incoming mayor, Privatize everything you can. Municipalities around the U.S. have begun successfully implementing this in various degrees. Why not here? Typically properly implemented privatization includes cost savings and other benets (better risk management through well-written contracts and enforcement of those contracts with private contractors, timeliness of services, quality improvements, etc.); all things that benet the people of our community. Again, why not here in Charlotte County? Why wouldnt you want your tax dollars being spent more efciently, have better quality of service, greater innovation, and more prompt service? Shouldnt you be asking your commissioners these questions? Concerned citizen groups should have representation at the commissioners meetings. Find out what is going on with your tax dollars. Dont be the last one to nd out that our county has lost millions of dollars in lawsuits with other similarly substantial suits in the pipeline. What happens if we still cant get positive responses and results from those representing us? Where situations call for it, we need to continue calling for audits of departments that demonstrably show high expenditures with lagging performance when compared to other similar counties in our state. We can call on the county administrator to ask for resignations of those who are not per forming to a standard. As an absolute last resort, we can organize a recall for those elected ofcials who refuse to listen to the voices of their constituents and we can get out of our seats and vote. Mark Zehr is a member of the Charlotte County Curmudgeon Club. Readers may reach him at cccurclub@embarqmail. com. The Curmudgeon website is www. in Washington, D.C.? I dont think so Mark Zehr Its interesting when two people from different worlds cross paths in an unexpected way. That was the case this week when a Florida tourism event featured Gov. Rick Scott and the rapper Vanilla Ice. The governor isnt the sort of guy youd expect to get jiggy with rappers. But, I guess, if there had to be one, Vanilla Ice would be a good choice. After all, if Scott had a rapper name, hed probably be Vanilla Vice. I can almost see a rapper version of Scott with his campaignrequired Navy ball cap on backwards, as he gets into his ow Yo, yo, I plead the Fifth like 75 times, Now Im billin Medicare for all my rhymes. Gov. Scott and Mr. Ice were both at the Boca Raton Hotel and Club this week as part of the 47th annual Florida Governors Conference on Tourism. The rapper-turnedreality TV star was at the event to perform his hit, Ice, Ice, Baby. Scott, who is seeking a second term, was there to perform his usual def wack number, Jobs, Jobs, Maybe. It got me thinking about all the other intersections between this odd couple, Vanilla Ice and Vanilla Vice. Subject: In the service of Big Shug Ice: Bullied on a hotel room balcony by record producer Suge Knight to sign away publishing rights to big hit song, which helped to fund Knights Death Row Records. Vice: Taking a secret hunting trip to a U.S. Sugar-nanced getaway at the King Ranch in Texas, and then a month later appointing a King Ranch executive to a slot on the board of the South Florida Water Management District. Subject: Asleep for more than 20 years Ice: His real name is very close to Rip Van Winkle, the Washington Irving ctional character, a man who fell asleep for more than 20 years and woke up surprised to nd himself so out of touch with the modern world. Vice: Denies climate change, fails to recognize gay marriage, and defends a minimum wage that has failed to be a living wage for decades. Subject: The Secret of the Ooze Ice: Appeared in the movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze. Vice: Vetoed a $2 million study of the water chemistry of the Indian River Lagoon by the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute. Green algae blooms on the lagoon have killed tens of thousands of acres of sea grass, as well as dolphins, manatees and other sea life. Subject: Used as a prop Ice: Broke up with Madonna, his girlfriend of eight months, after the 1992 publication of her book, Sex. He says that Madonna made him feel disgusting and cheap the way she used photos of them for her book, as if he were some product on the shelf. Vice: Broke up with his campaign dog Reagan after being elected as governor. To woo his tea party base, Scott adopted a rescue Labrador retriever during the 2010 campaign and named it Reagan. But after the campaign, Scott returned the dog to the shelter, saying that it didnt bite anyone but scared the living daylights out of the staff at the governors mansion. Subject: Stop that train? Ice: Denitely. In Ices rap Stop That Train, he says, Roastin my body, it left a stain in my brain. And all I kept sayin to myself was stop that train, I wanna get off. Stop that train, I wanna get off. Vice: It depends on which train. He stopped a high-speed train between Orlando and Tampa that would have been nanced nearly completely with $2.6 billion federal stimulus grant. But he has pledged state money to support a Miamito-Orlando All Aboard Florida train thats a project by the company that previously employed his chief of staff.

Our Town Page 12 C The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS MURDOCK Environmentalists say proposed changes to Charlotte Countys Comprehensive Plan pose a threat to local wetlands and coastal areas. Commissioners say they are following state recommendations to remove regulatory language from the plan, but whether the countys decision results in lawsuits or challenges remains to be seen. Commissioners voted unanimously this week to follow county staff recommendations regarding streamlining of the countys codes. Community Development Director Ty Harris contends recent changes in state law recommend specific regulatory language be deleted from comprehensive plans. Comprehensive plans are not merely planning documents but could be described as acting as county constitutions, Harris said. None of the stuff were doing takes away whats in the land use regulations and is enforceable, Harris assured commissioners. He also suggested by avoiding regulatory language in the Comprehensive Plan, the county keeps the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity former ly the Department of Community Affairs and other state agencies out of county land use planning. Harris also cautioned commissioners at the outset of the hearing he thought the county could see challenges to the changes to the plan. The Friends of Cape Haze, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida and others objected to the proposed changes, suggesting the county was stripping away wetland, other wildlife protections and weakening the transfer of development units (TDUs) from high hazard zones. Among the concerns of the Cape Haze group, as stated in several emails sent to commissioners from Percy Angelo and Marvin Medintz, is if the changes to the Comprehensive Plan would allow additional TDU development density into sensitive areas, such as rural service areas as well as environmentally sensitive areas and barrier islands. The Friends of Cape Haze has won a court settlement against the county over coastal development densities and the TDUs. What resulted from that settlement, Harris said, remains in place. Conservancy of Southwest Florida attorney Ralf Brooks said wetland buffers are important tools protecting aquatic, fish and wildlife resources. Wetland buffers should be part of your Comprehensive Plan and not be reduced, he said. Theres a difference (between) permitting by an agency and planning by a county. Brooks also questioned the county plans for 100-foot-wide wildlife corridors, which he deemed as too narrow, no wider than some residential lots. When asked Friday if the conservancy intended to challenge the commission vote, Brooks said the group is reviewing its options. A decision will be made in the next 30 days, he said. Critics have also suggested the county ignored concerns and suggestions for revisions by state agencies and Lee County over the changes that staff proposed. Lee Countys concerns centered on potential impacts to greater development densities in South County and to Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island. Harris said county staff addressed all those issues. The proposed changes also have supporters. Geri Waksler said she wasnt speaking as a land use attorney but as a 30-year Charlotte County resident, one with unique knowledge into land use and comprehensive plans. I applaud staff for this Comprehensive Plan amendment, she said. This amendment swings the pendulum back to a Comprehensive Plan that protects the entire communitys interests not just the development communitys interests, not just the environmentalists interests. (It) strikes a balance between both, she said.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comCritics: Plan changes threaten environmentBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER SUN FILE PHOTO BY BETSY WILLIAMSCamp counselor Hannah Gurland, 16, watches her group of girls: Rylie Demko, 11, her sister Madyson, 12, Hannah Scho, 11, and Ella Burns examine their catch at a summer Ecocamp at Cedar Point Environmental Park in June.

Course instructor Je Opsatnick, a longtime member of Charlotte County Fire/EMSs Special Operations unit, goes over a scenerio with Fire/EMS Lt. Shane Styza. Members of the Charlotte County Fire/EMS Special Operations unit held a 40-hour rope rescue class this week. Twenty local Fire/EMS members and two reghters from the Cape Coral Fire Department either brushed up on their skills or learned the material. The course wrapped up with a scenario test Friday afternoon, which asked trainees to rescue two downed patients stranded in a lookout tower south of Punta Gorda.SUN PHOTOS BY ADAM KREGERThe scenario test was completed without a hitch. Rope rescue training also can be useful locally when trying to rescue someone below a bridge. Je Opsatnick, a longtime member of the countys Special Oper ations unit, was an instructor for the course. Before Fridays test, he went over how to properly stabilize a patient using a half-back rescue harness. Firemedic Jeremiah Johnson was kind enough to act as the patient. Rescuers had to carefully situate levers and pullies around the tower so the patients 170-pound dummies could be lowered to the ground safely. **EXCLUDES ONE OF A KIND FLOOR MODELS, DISCOUNTED MODELS, ONLY APPLICABLE TO COMPATIBLE SALES. ** SEE SALES ASSOCIATE FOR DETAIL.

The European countries committed to take part only in the Iraq part of the military campaign, leaving the oper ation in Syria to the United States and ve Arab allies who began conducting airstrikes there on Tuesday. Still, the broadening of the coalition provides a welcome boost for President Barack Obama and the American-led campaign. The U.S.-led operation aims to roll back and ultimately crush the Islamic State group, which has carved out a proto-state stretching from Syrias northern border with Turkey to the outskirts of Baghdad. The militants have employed brute force to achieve their goals, massacring captured Syrian and Iraqi troops, terrorizing minorities in both countries and beheading two American journalists and a British aid worker. While striking fear into its opponents, the Islamic State groups tactics have also helped galvanize the inter national community to move against the extremists. France has already joined the U.S.-led effort in Iraq, and is consider ing expanding its role to Syria as well. The Netherlands, too, has said it would take part in the bombing campaign in Iraq.

Page 2 WIRE The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 NATIONAL NEWS WASHINGTON (Bloomberg) The decision to approve drones for lming movies in the U.S. may create opportunities for other industries from crop dusting to map making that see value in using unmanned aircraft. The Federal Aviation Administration is considering requests to allow drones to be used in agriculture operations, land surveying and oil eld inspections. Thursday, six movie and television companies were granted the rst permits for commercial drone ights in the continental U.S. Those production companies convinced the FAA that they are capable of safely using drones in lming scenes, successfully navigating a regulatory process that now becomes a model for other businesses seeking approval, said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. He singled out the promise of new advances in agriculture and utility safety and maintenance. Its a crucial step in the safe integration of drones into the aviation system, Foxx later told reporters on a conference call Thursday. As weve seen, uses for unmanned aircraft are only limited by our imagination. At least 40 additional waiver requests are pending for commercial use of unmanned aircraft systems, including from Inc. and Berkshire Hathaway Inc.s BNSF Railway Co., according to the FAA. Benjamin Trapnell, an aeronautics professor at the University of North Dakota who developed the schools unmanned air craft study program, said he is considering ling an application allowing students to y drones at the school. The fact that theyre allowing anybody to do it from a commercial point of view is great, Trapnell said in an interview. The FAA Thursday said it granted the six movie and TV production companies waivers from regulations on general ight rules, pilot certication and equipment mandates designed for traditional aircraft as long as they meet certain conditions for safety. The agency is working with a seventh company on a similar drone approval. The companies developed safety procedures with the help of the Motion Picture Association of America trade group, FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said. He also encouraged other industries to develop common practices for drone use applications. Businesses want to use drones for surveying, monitoring crops and inspecting electrical grids and pipelines, Huerta said. While applauding the FAAs decision as an important milestone, an Arlington, Va.-based trade group for the drone industry said the agency must continue working on other applications. The FAA can and must do more, Michael Toscano, president and chief executive ofce of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, said in an emailed statement. The Hollywood companies, which include closely held Aerial MOB LLC and Pictorvision Inc., will be allowed to y small drones carrying cameras on closed sets. The FAA said the aircraft must be inspected before each ight and may only be operated during the day. Any accidents or incidents must be reported.Hollywood shows Amazon, others path to drone approval FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) Cast as an olive branch by some, the Ferguson police chiefs attempt to march with protesters demanding charges in the killing of an unarmed, black 18-year-old by a white ofcer still erupted into a clash that activists Friday blamed on police missteps. The trouble Thursday night came hours after Police Chief Tom Jackson released a videotaped apology to Michael Browns family, though it drew skepticism from residents and protesters who still crave answers about Browns Aug. 9 death even as a county grand jury weighs whether to indict the Ferguson ofcer who shot him, Darren Wilson, and the Justice Department investigates whether Browns civil rights were violated. The latest unrest occurred two days after many in the St. Louis suburb complained Ferguson police did little to douse a re that destroyed one of two makeshift memorials near where Brown died. You have people grasping for a crumb of justice, protester Charles Wade, 31, of Austin, Texas, said Friday near a small canopy where protesters regular ly have gathered across the street from the police station since shortly after Browns death. Theres a circle of trauma that keeps happening. He said Thursday nights protesters appeared largely unmoved by Jacksons video apology, saying they felt it was more of a PR move than sincere. In it, Jackson acknowledged Browns body should have been removed from the street much sooner than the four hours it remained there as police collected evidence. Im truly sorry for that, Jackson said, insisting ofcers meant no disrespect to Browns family or the largely black community. To Browns parents, Jackson added, Im truly sorry for the loss of your son. Also Thursday, news surfaced that the man hired to handle public relations for Ferguson, including the chiefs apology, was red after ofcials learned he had been convicted of reckless homicide in 2006 in connection with a shooting in Shelby County, Tenn. Devin James told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch the shooting was self-defense and he served 90 days in prison and ve years of probation. James and Jackson did not return messages to The Associated Press seeking comment Friday. Col. Ron Replogle of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said Friday that Missouri police have been undergoing training on responding to civil unrest, buying more equipment and planning for the worst throughout the St. Louis region if a grand jury opts not to indict Wilson. Thursdays are-up came after Jackson, the police chief, agreed to join marchers but failed to tell ofcers monitor ing his safety to stand down, witnesses said Friday. That led to some ofcers forcing their way into the gathering, then pushing and shoving marchers, the witnesses said. Several protesters were arrested. It was absolute mayhem, Wade added. Jackson decided to come out and broker some peace and pretty much asked what he could do to build a new level of trust, and police continued to come, come, come. The olive branch he tried to extend was great, and it showed he wasnt a robot. But police forced him out like he was a diplomat in a war zone.Ferguson unrest persists despite police chiefs gesture AP PHOTOFerguson Police Chief Tom Jackson, left, speaks before protesters in front of the Ferguson Police Department, Thursday. LOS ANGELES (AP) As its 75th anniversary approaches, Gone With the Wind is again being celebrated as a timeless movie classic. But now, even the lms distributor acknowledges the Civil War epics portrayal of slavery is dated and inaccurate. Gone With the Wind will be screened this weekend in 650 theaters nationwide, broadcast Monday by Turner Classic Movies and reissued Tuesday in a lavish home-video box set, including a music box, an embroidered handkerchief and more than 8 hours of bonus features. To produce something new for yet another GWTW box set, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment brought in lmmaker and historian Gary Leva. Theres been a ton of stuff about the making of the lm, Leva recalls the studio telling him. Can you give us a deeper look at how the movie portrays the Civil War? Leva responded with the 30-minute documentary Old South/New South, which drew a surprisingly frank conclusion for a studio-commissioned commemorative project: One of the worlds all-time great lms also has great shortcomings. In the documentary, which is included in the box sets out Tuesday, historians discuss how the lm has perpetuated my thology dubbed The Lost Cause, which proposes Southern involvement in the Civil War was solely for noble reasons, including defense of states rights. But when you get right down to it, what state right are you talking about? asks University of North Carolina history professor David Goldeld in the Leva lm. Youre talking about the right of individuals to own slaves. Based on Margaret Mitchells 1936 best-seller, Gone With the Wind is ction, about a spoiled Old South socialite, Scarlett OHara. But the real-life war that serves as her storys backdrop looms too large in the lm for many to overlook. (Slavery) is such a component of the movie, and the characters who you are rooting for are oblivious, noted lm critic and TCM host Ben Mankiewicz. Actress Hattie McDaniel, who played Scarletts devoted nanny Mammy, a slave, became the rst African-American actor to be nominated for and win an Academy Award. Nevertheless, the lms portrayal of black char acters has been criticized ever since the world premiere in Atlanta on Dec. 13, 1939. In Gone With the Wind, slavery is portrayed in the most benevolent terms, Leva said. Characters like Mammy are looked at like family members. And theres no hint at any sort of wrongdoing the slave masters do nothing in the lm that seems inappropriate. At least the movie got one thing right: Tomorrow is, indeed, another day; Hollywood is nally offer ing a grittier, more honest view of slavery in lms such as Years a Slave and Django Unchained.Gone With the Wind at 75: Celebration, censure | NATIONAL NEWS BRIEFSBorder Patrol agent charged in assault on boyTUSCON, Ariz. (LA Times) A U.S. Border Patrol agent surrendered Thursday to face felony charges of assaulting a 14-year-old boy at the Nogales Border Patrol station for having a cellphone while in detention. Aldo Francisco Arteaga of Tucson was ngerprinted and photographed at the Santa Cruz County Sheriffs Ofce, then released on his own recognizance. He was formally charged last week with aggravated assault of a minor, county ofcials said. If convicted, he could face up to two years in prison. U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced the charges Thursday, saying they came after an internal affairs investigation. Santa Cruz County Atty. George Silva said prosecutors had video of the purported Jan. 30 assault from a surveillance camera in an immigration holding cell. The ofcer sees the juvenile with a phone, a prohibited item, takes the phone from the juvenile and proceeds to punch him in the stomach, Silva told the Los Angeles Times.Mich. panel OKs bonds to help Detroit out of bankruptcyLANSING, Mich. (Detroit Free Press) A state panel on Friday approved four bond deals worth up to $1.1 billion that are needed for the city of Detroit to emerge from bankruptcy. The Detroit City Council had previously approved the bond deals, which will be used to pay off various creditors who have agreed to the citys latest plan of adjustment in bankruptcy, provide bankruptcy exit nancing and set aside money for creditors claims that are still disputed. The City Council had proposed an alternate plan for the $1.4-million sale to the Land Bank Fast Track Authority of 301 city-owned properties near the site of the proposed New International Trade Crossing to Canada. But the City Council essentially withdrew that alternative proposal late Thursday, conceding in a letter from Detroit Corporation Counsel Melvin Butch Hollowell that their plan was not currently viable.Huge California fire mostly spares infrastructureSACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Nearly an inch of rain, with more wet weather forecast for the weekend, has helped reghters gain the upper hand on a massive wildre burning in the mountains east of Sacramento, ofcials said Friday. The blaze has burned more than 150 square miles of a heavily forested region of the Sierra Nevada that is home to numerous hydroelectric plants and is crisscrossed with power lines, water pipes and wooden umes. It destroyed a dozen homes near the town of Pollock Pines in El Dorado County and threatened several reservoirs that supply water and electricity to portions of Northern California, but most of the utility infrastructure appears to have been spared. A popular lake basin that draws hikers, campers and anglers from throughout Northern California was threatened but escaped largely untouched. The King Fire that authorities say was started Sept. 13 by an arsonist was 68 percent contained Friday.US consumer sentiment reaches 14-month highWASHINGTON (AP) A measure of U.S. consumer condence reached its highest level since July 2013, led by greater optimism that the economy will grow and incomes will rise. The University of Michigan said Friday that its index of consumer sentiment rose to 84.6 in September from 82.5 in August. Thats the second highest level in the past seven years, although the index has rarely topped 85 since the Great Recession. Before the downturn, it typically stood above 90. Still, the sunnier outlook could spur consumers to spend more, which would accelerate economic growth. Consumer spending accounts for about 70 percent of economic activity. But spending growth has been subdued since the recession ended in 2009, averaging at an annual rate of 2 percent. It usually rises above 3 percent in a healthy economy.Economys Q2 rebound was faster than thoughtWASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. economys bounce-back last quarter from a dismal winter was even faster than previously thought, a sign that growth will likely remain solid for rest of the year. The economy as measured by gross domestic product grew at a 4.6 per cent annual rate in the April-June quarter, the Commerce Department said Friday. It was the fastest pace in more than two years and higher than the governments previous estimate of 4.2 percent. The upward revision reected stronger-thanexpected business investment and exports last quarter. The healthy secondquarter growth marked a sharp rebound from the January-March quarter, when the economy shrank at a 2.1 percent rate in the midst of a brutal winter that idled factories and kept consumers at home. As the third quarter nears an end, economists envision a strengthening economy through the end of 2014 and into 2015.Pentagon wants tighter soldier loan protectionsWASHINGTON (AP) Aiming to restrict lenders who prey on members of the military, the Obama administration Friday moved to close legal loopholes that have placed hundreds of thousands of service members at risk of excessive payday and other short-term loan fees. The Defense Department proposed new rules to toughen a 2006 law that limits interest rates for certain types of credit available to service members and their dependents. Under current law, lenders cannot charge members of the military more than 36 percent interest. But the loans covered by the law are so narrowly dened that lenders, many of them located near military bases, can make simple adjustments to get around its provisions. The proposed rules would broaden the denition of consumer credit so that more loans would fall under the provisions of the 2006 law. Final rules likely wont take effect until next year; the public and inter est groups have 60 days to comment on the plan. .,-.1` ',,,.. ,` _;..; .UM


The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 WIRE Page 3 WORLD NEWS UNITED NATIONS (AP) French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said Friday that the latest round of talks with Iran has failed to make substantial headway on imposing nuclear curbs that country can accept in exchange for an end to sanctions clamped on Tehrans economy. With the talks being held on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly, expectations had been high that foreign ministers of the six powers negotiating with Iran would join the talks. But Fabius told reporters that he and his counterparts would not do so because there are no signicant advances at the moment. The session, which began eight days ago, remains stuck over uranium enrichment. Iran says it needs a robust enrichment program to make reactor fuel and other peaceful purposes but the U.S. and its allies fear the programs other application making the ssile core of a nuclear weapon. The U.S. came to the current round demanding that Tehran limit its enrichment output at what roughly 1,500 of its mainstay centrifuge machines would produce. Iran insists the output should remain at the level produced at the approximately 10,000 centrifuges it now operates. With little movement ahead of an already extended Nov. 24 deadline, diplomats told The Associated Press Thursday that the U.S. is considering a new approach. They said the tentative proposal would allow Tehran to keep nearly half of the centrifuges already spinning but reduce the stock of uranium gas fed into the machines to the point where it would take more than a year of enriching to create enough material for a nuclear warhead. The diplomats emphasized that the proposal is only one of several being discussed by the six powers the U.S., Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany and has not yet been formally submitted to the Iranians. Other ideas also include letting Iran have more than 1,500 machines but removing or destroying much of the infrastructure needed to make them run connecting circuits, pipes used to feed uranium gas and other auxiliary equipment. Both would allow the Iranians to claim that they did not compromise on vows that they would never destroy existing enrichment capabilities, while keeping intact American demands that the program be downgraded to a point where it could not be quickly turned to making bombs. But even if a solution is found, the sides still differ on how long Irans nuclear program should be constrained.No progress in Iran nuke talks PARIS (AP) In tweets, in street gatherings and in open letters, moderate Muslims around the world are insisting that Islamic State extremists dont speak for their religion. Many are also frustrated that anyone might think they do, and a backlash has already begun. This weeks videotaped beheading of a French mountaineer by militants linked to the Islamic State group prompted heartsick fury among Muslims in France and elsewhere in Europe, torn between anger at the atrocities committed in the name of Islam and frustration that they have to defend themselves at all. Herv Gourdel was the fth Western hostage decapitated in recent weeks by Islamic extremists this time, the militants said, as revenge for Frances decision to join airstrikes against the Islamic State group. The head of Frances largest mosque called for Muslims to rally Friday in Paris to condemn Gourdels slaying and show unity against terrorism, saying Islamic States deadly ideology had nothing to do with Islam. Within hours of the call, the rector of the Bordeaux mosque, Tareq Oubrou, said French Muslims need not demonstrate in the name of Islam but should be joined by everyone. They are doubly affected, because this crime touched one of our countrymen and because this crime was carried out in the name of our religion, Oubrou told RTL radio. The same debate played out elsewhere. The hashtag campaign #notinmyname or #pasenmonnom in French initiated by British Muslims who wanted to show their opposition to extremist violence, spawned a #MuslimApologies backlash by those who thought the sense of regret was overwrought. Tweets apologized for algebra, soap and coffee. One congregant, Omer Jamak, questioned the devotion and even sanity of anyone who thought otherwise. According to Islam, nobody is allowed to be evil to others. Nobody has the right to do such a thing. I am against every thing they do down there like every sane person is, Jamak said.Western Muslims rally against extremism AP PHOTOA large gropu of Muslims pay homage to French mountaineer Herv Gourdel who was beheaded by Islamist militants in Algeria, during a gathering in front of the Paris Grand Mosque, Friday. | WORLD NEWS BRIEFSMexico army holds 8 soldiers in June killing of 22MEXICO CITY (AP) An army ofcer and seven soldiers face disciplinary action for their participation in the killing of 22 people in rural southern Mexico, but the army remained mum on Friday on what roles they played. The Mexican Defense Department said that the eight were involved in the June 30 incident in San Pedro Limon, an encounter that the military initially reported as a shootout but that a witness has described as a massacre. The National Human Rights Commission has requested a report on the arrests, investigator Marat Paredes said Friday. The armys statement did not reveal the names of those detained nor their battalion. They were being held at a prison in Mexico City on charges of crimes against military discipline, disobedience and dereliction of duty. The statement issued Thursday night said the military charges are being pursued independently of the investigations that civil authorities are carrying out under their jurisdiction, leaving open the possibility of charges in civilian courts.Afghanistans Ghani led decisively in disputed voteKABUL (dpa) President-elect Ashraf Ghani won Afghanistans disputed presidential election with a decisive lead of more than 10 percentage points, the countrys election commission said Friday. The election commission on Friday presented Ghani with an accreditation, endorsing his win in the race, that said that he had secured 55.27 percent of total votes, spokesman Noor Mohammad said. The news comes ve days after Ghani agreed to form a national unity government with his former rival Abdullah Abdullah, ending a three-month dispute over the elections results that threatened to push the country toward civil war.Constant phone calls allowed on European flightsBERLIN (AP) European skies may soon be alive with the sound of small talk with new safety rules allowing the use of all portable electronics, including cellphones, at any time during ights. Under the guidelines issued Friday by the European Aviation Safety Agency, European airlines can allow passengers to use electronics during the entire ight, without putting them into airplane mode. Were basically opening the door where, in theory, youll be able to continue making your phone call through the gate throughout the ight like you would on a train, spokesman Ilias Maragakis told The Associated Press. Standing in the way is the difculty of getting a cellphone signal at high altitudes, and also how passengers will react to the thought of sitting next to a chatterbox across the Atlantic. In addition to phones, the guidelines apply to all other portable electronics, including book readers, tab let computers, mp3 players and other devices. rfrfrntbtbbttbtbt ffff 50471429 LOWEST PRICES OF THE YEAR!

Page 4 WIRE The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 WORLD NEWS NEW YORK (AP) Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas accused Israel on Friday of conducting a war of genocide and a series of absolute war crimes during the 50-day summer conict in Gaza, but stopped short of saying he will pursue war crime charges against the Jewish state at the International Criminal Court. In his speech at the U.N. General Assembly, Abbas also said he will seek a U.N. resolution to set a deadline for Israel to pull out of Palestinian lands captured in the 1967 war but did not include a three-year deadline as his aides had said he would. This last war against Gaza was a series of absolute war crimes carried out before the eyes and ears of the entire world, moment by moment, Abbas said. The devastation unleashed, he said, is unmatched in modern times. An ofcial in the Israeli Prime Ministers ofce described Abbas statements as a speech of incitement that is lled with lies. This is not how someone who wants peace speaks, said the ofcial, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with protocol. Israel launched thousands of airstrikes against what it said were Hamas-linked targets in Gaza, while Gaza militants red several thousand rockets at Israel. More than 2,100 Palestinians were killed, a large majority civilians, and some 18,000 homes were destroyed, according to U.N. gures.

(AP) Residents in the southwest Illinois city of Belleville celebrated its 200th birthday with a 200-foot bratwurst, complete with a 200-foot bun. Larry Schubert and his team from Schuberts Packing Co. in Millstadt used about 120 pounds of meat to make the brat, which volunteers grilled Sunday, the final day of the citys bicentennial celebration, the Belleville NewsDemocrat reported. A few days earlier, a saloon hosted a half-size practice run for grilling the mega-bratwurst. Lindenwood University and Southwestern Illinois College athletes helped march the bun down a main thoroughfare, making a wide turn in a parking lot to finish the delivery. The athletes also helped roll the bratwurst onto a 200-foot metal grilling trough. The event raised $1,600 for local food pantries.ODD NEWS Illinois city marks birthday with mega bratwurst ALMANACToday is Saturday, Sept. 27, the 270th day of 2014.

Some part of the brain has to decide how to decide. Researchers set out to nd how and where such choices are made. They created three computer opponents with increasingly tough strategies to punish patterns in how rats sought selected holes to poke their noses in, looking for food. One was a bit lenient; the second, a bit less forgiving; and the third, strict it was programmed to learn from the mouse and thwart its strategy. When animals initially played against the weak competitors, they appeared to maintain a strategic approach, just like people have observed before with primates, Karpova said. But when we put them up against a very sophisticated competitor, the animals switched to the random mode. And they got stuck there, for hundreds of trials. Researchers werent done. They created a new brain-buster. It gave higher rewards for a certain pattern of pokes (such as right-right-left) but also mild reward rates (16 percent) for non-patterned responses. The strategic rodents that had played against competitors one and two beat the odds at the hidden pattern task. Their reward rates, about 20 percent, indicated that sticking to strategic thinking helped them uncover the hidden pattern. Those that had rst played the sternest computer taskmaster earned just a 14.5 percent reward rate, below even the random rate. They were completely blind to the sudden availability of a simple strategy that would be benecial, Karpova said. They got stuck in this random mode. More trials and some simulations strengthened the researchers hunch that they had pushed rats beyond the guidance of feedback and mental models. Now it was time to tinker with brain chemistry. Humans are adept at building internal models for strategic thinking, and scientists of late have highlighted a key role for the anterior cingulate cortex. That collar-shaped area in the upper front of the brain is a bit of a neurological elevator, relaying signals between the emotion-related areas of the brain and the cognitive areas higher up. So it has a role in a lot of basic functions, from mediating anxiety and attention to making complex correlations. Scientists think thats the home of the mental models that help us make decisions based on experience and feedback.CIRCUITSFROM PAGE 1 reserve sheriffs deputy and the companys chief operating ofcer, shot him. This was not going to stop if he didnt stop it. It could have gotten a lot worse, Lewis said. The threat had already stopped once we arrived. Lewis said Moore police have asked the FBI to look into the mans background because of the nature of the attack, which follows a series of videotaped beheadings by Islamic State militants. In a statement, FBI Special Agent in Charge James E. Finch said the motive for the attack has not been determined but that there is no reason to believe there is a threat to anyone else. Johnson and the suspect were hospitalized and in stable condition Friday, Lewis said. Nolen had not yet been charged and Lewis said he didnt know what charges the suspect would face. Oklahoma Department of Corrections records say Nolen has served time in prison and is on probation for assault and battery on a police ofcer. He also was convicted of cocaine possession with intent to distribute in 2011. Corrections records show Nolen has what appear to be religious tattoos, including one referencing Jesus and one in Arabic that means peace be with you. Lewis said Nolen had been red in a building that houses the companys human resources ofce, then immediately drove to the entrance of the business. Lewis said he didnt know why the man was red.

The ground stoppage at OHare and Midway airports immediately raised questions about whether the Federal Aviation Administration has adequate backup plans to keep planes moving when a single facility has to shut down. By late afternoon, about 1,950 ights in and out of Chicago had been canceled. A few ights resumed around midday, after a nearly ve-hour gap. The planes were moving at a much-reduced pace, ofcials said, and no one could be sure when full service would be restored. The early morning re forced the evacuation of the control center in Aurora, about 40 miles west of downtown Chicago. It was the second unexpected shutdown of a Chicagoarea air trafc facility since May. Howard worked for the FAA contractor that supplies and maintains communications systems at air trafc facilities, said Jessica Cigich, a spokeswoman for Professional Aviation Safety Specialists, the union that represents FAA technicians. We dont know what his state of mind was at the time, said Thomas Ahern, a spokesman for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which was taking part in the investigation. The man used gasoline as an accelerant, he said. When the center was evacuated, management of the regions airspace was transferred to other facilities, FAA spokeswoman Elizabeth Cory said. But hours after the ordeal began, the regions air trafc was still a mess. The Aurora facility which had become a crime scene remained shut down. The ames badly damaged the centers ber-optic equipment, leaving controllers unable to talk with pilots, Cigich said. A control center in Indianapolis called in staff on overtime to patch together inbound and outbound routes for the Chicago area, said Douglas Church, a spokesman for the National Air Trafc Controllers Association labor union. But the process was slow and painstaking because there was no way for other Chicago-area controllers to send ight plans to computers in Indianapolis. That information normally gets routed through the Aurora facility. They have had to revert to entering ightplan information on those aircraft into (their) system by hand, Church wrote in an email. That led some observers to call for better backup plans. This is a nightmare scenario when we thought systems were in place to prevent it, said aviation analyst Joseph Schwieterman of DePaul University in Chicago.FIREFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOAnn Walden and her 15-month-old daughter Delphine wait in line after their ight to Baton Rouge was delayed at OHare International Airport in Chicago, Friday. Britain all signed on as well on Friday. Denmark said it would send seven F-16 ghter jets and 250 pilots and support staff, while Belgium will contribute six F-16s that are already en route to Jordan so they can go into action as early as Saturday. No one should be ducking in this case, said Danish Prime Minister Helle ThorningSchmidt. Everyone should contribute. British lawmakers also voted Friday to join the coalition. London is expected to deploy Tornado ghters, which are in Cyprus within striking distance of northern Iraq. This is about psychopathic terrorists that are trying to kill us and we do have to realize that, whether we like it or not, they have already declared war on us, Prime Minister David Cameron told a tense House of Commons in a more than six-hour debate. There isnt a walk on by option. There isnt an option of just hoping this will go away. The European contingent will join a campaign that has already carried out hundreds of airstrikes, the latest of which hit Islamic State positions in both Iraq and Syria late Thursday and Friday. The U.S. Central Command said that air strikes outside the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk destroyed three Islamic State Humvees, disabled two armed vehicles and damaged an armored truck. More strikes west of Baghdad and near the Syrian border knocked out a guard shack, armed vehicles, a bunker and a checkpoint. In Syria, the U.S. destroyed four tanks and damaged another outside the city of Deir el-Zour on the Euphrates River. Those strikes marked the second consecutive day that the United States and its Arab allies have taken aim at the militants near the border with Iraq. Coalition planes pounded a dozen makeshift oil-producing facilities in the same area on Thursday, trying to cripple one of the militants primary sources of cash black market oil sales that the U.S. says produce up to $2 million a day.STRIKESFROM PAGE 1 ORLANDO Argentine Cristina Bianchi knows that a good mother-in-law doesnt overstay her welcome, but a good grandmother is around as much as possible. Im retiring from a medical practice, and Im looking for a place here in Orlando to come and spend time with my fami ly here, said Bianchi, 65. She is part of a growing number of international buyers throughout Florida. Leading the state are Orlando and Tampa, which each had an 11 percent share of the states international buy ers during a 12-month period that ended in July, according to a new report by Florida Realtors. While South American buyers have dwindled, more Chinese buyers have entered the market. Mounting inter national interest has helped drive up home prices, but it also means tougher competition for homebuyers who live in the area. Buyers from other countries come ush with cash and can effectively push out domestic buyers in need of mortgages. For sellers, that oppor tunity to close in 10 days with a cash buyer sounds a lot nicer than closing in 45 days with a buyer who needs a mortgage, said Maria Quintero, an Orlando agent with Stirling Sothebys International Realty. Plus, sellers dont have to deal with inspections, appraisals and approvals. Obviously it hurts the domestic buyer. Florida has long led the nation for attracting the greatest share of homebuyers from other regions of the world. During recent years, an increased number of international buyers purchased homes in the state, and those buyers have become a larger share of the Florida real-estate market, accounting for 10 percent of residential sales in the state by July of this year. In the Orlando area, international buyers are most likely to originate from, in order: Canada, the United Kingdom, Brazil, China, Venezuela and Argentina. Statewide, Canadian buyers dominated this years list of international buyers. They commanded 32 percent of the international market up from 30 percent the previous year.Orlando, Tampa lead state for international buyers of homes NEW YORK (AP) Health ofcials are investigating nine cases of muscle weakness or paralysis in Colorado children and whether the culprit might be a virus causing severe respiratory illness across the country. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday sent doctors an alert about the polio-like cases and said the germ enterovirus 68 was detected in four out of eight of the sick children who had a certain medical test. The status of the ninth case is unclear. The virus can cause paralysis but other germs can, too. Health ofcials dont know whether the virus caused any of the childrens arm and leg weaknesses or whether its just a germ they coincidentally picked up. Thats why we want more information, and for doctors to report similar cases, said the CDCs Dr. Jane Seward. The cases occurred with in the last two months. All nine children are being treated at Childrens Hospital Colorado in Aurora, and most are from the Denver area. A hospital spokeswoman said the patients families didnt want to talk to the media. The nine children had fever and respiratory illness about two weeks before developing varying degrees of limb weakness. None seems to have a weak immune system or other conditions that might predispose them to severe illness, but the cases are still being investigated, Seward said. Investigators dont think its polio eight of the nine children are up to date on polio vaccinations. Its not known whether the limb weakness or paralysis is temporary or will be long-lasting. The cases come amid an unusual wave of severe respiratory illness from enterovirus 68. The germ is not new it was rst identied in 1962 and has caused clusters of illness before, including in Georgia and Pennsylvania in 2009 and Arizona in 2010. Because its not routinely tested for, its possible the bug spread in previous years but was never distinguished from colds caused by other germs. This year, the virus has gotten more attention because it has been linked to hundreds of severe illnesses. Beginning last month, a ood of sick children began to hit hospitals in Kansas City, Missouri, and Chicago kids with trouble breathing, some needing oxygen or more extreme care such as a breathing machine. Many but not all had asthma before the infection.Virus probed in paralysis cases in 9 Colorado kids aacaaQIr@x j on o4oran Mog4oc11/98

Disney has a knack for making the most of big content acquisitions. It spent $7.4 billion on Pixar in 2006 and has reaped more than $5 billion in global ticket sales from it so far. Marvel cost $4.6 billion in 2009 and has generated $9.6 billion in worldwide box office sales so far. These box office figures dont include DVD and Blu-ray sales. Nor do they account for licensed T-shirts, pajamas, action figures or lunch boxes. Moreover, Disney keeps integrating Pixar and Marvel characters, and their stories, into cruise experiences and theme park rides. Disneys $4 billion Lucasfilm buyout will also pay huge dividends, as Disney unfolds the epic Star Wars universe and the Indiana Jones saga. Meanwhile, Disney is still capable of putting out a homegrown hit every so often, such as Frozen, which has generated nearly $1.3 billion in ticket sales worldwide, making it the fifth-highest-grossing movie of all time and the top dog in full-length animation. Then there are its parks and resorts, which generate a third of its revenue, and its media networks (think ABC and ESPN), generating 44 percent. Disney offers a lot to like.

I heard on the radio that there were accusations of largescale fraud and a cover-up at BreX, and that a key individual had mysteriously fallen out of a helicopter, apparently committing suicide. The whole thing sounded too ridiculous to be true. I immediately bought some stock, figuring that the story was either a fabrication or an outlandish rumor. I was wrong, and still have the stock listed among my assets as a reminder to be more careful with my hard-earned money. D.V., Montreal, Canada The Fool Responds: The Bre-X story that was big news in 1997 was indeed a wild one, with billions of Canadian dollars lost. (Its not over yet, either, as the presumeddead geologist whose supposed body was badly decomposed when it was found several days later has been rumored to still be alive.) The story is a cautionary tale about how volatile penny stocks can be, as they can be easily manipulated and have wiped out many naive investors. Many penny stocks are those of mining companies, without profitable track records but hopes of striking gold.Do you have an embarrassing lesson learned the hard way?

If the CEO of Keyboard Mart (ticker: QWERTY) sells lots of shares, you might worry that the companys in trouble. But executives these days often get much of their compensation in the form of stock. The CEO might just be selling some shares to generate cash to buy a house or pay a college bill. It is worth worrying about, though, if many insiders are selling many shares all at once. Meanwhile, if insiders are buying many shares, thats a promising sign. They know the company well and would presumably buy only if they expect the shares to rise. ***QWhen a company has its initial public offering (IPO), how do the people who have owned the company keep their ownership? K.W., Longmont, ColoradoAWhen a company goes public with an IPO, it usually sells only part of itself. Heres a simplified example: Imagine that the owner of Farm Dogs Inc. (ticker: BINGO) decides to sell 25 percent of it to the public via an IPO, to raise money to fuel growth. She currently owns all of the 100 million shares of the company and will sell 25 million of them to the public, so there will still be 100 million shares after the offering. Investment bankers help her determine the valuation of the company and decide to price the offering at $20 per share. This means her company will collect about $500 million (25 million times $20) when the shares are sold (less the investment banks fee of around 7 percent). She will retain ownership of 75 percent of the firm, or 75 million shares.Got a question for the Fool? Send it in see Write to Us Can You Afford to Wait?If youre putting off saving and investing for retirement, you may really regret it in the future. Heres why: Imagine that you begin saving at age 45 and invest $5,000 per year for 20 years, earning the markets historical average return of about 10 percent per year, with 3 percent annual inflation. Youll end up with $286,375 before inflation and $204,977 after inflation. If you dont begin saving and investing until age 55, youll have to sock away $18,000 a year or delay your retirement until age 75 just to end up with the same amount of money! (And by the way, retiring with just $200,000 wont be enough for many people.) Heres the power of just one year: In the example above, starting at age 45 gets you $204,977 after inflation.

BY UNIVERSAL UCLICK 9/25 BUSINESS NEWS Dear Mr. Berko: In 1996, my father passed away, and one of the three stocks I inherited was E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Co. At that time, my 110 shares were selling between $70 and $90. I also got two Fidelity mutual funds, which have done well, but DuPont stock does nothing. Whats wrong with this company? I know its in chemicals, but I never see the name on any products. What does it make? I am now 66 and need help on what to do with this stock. Should I sell it and put the money in the two Fidelity mutual funds? JN, Springeld, Ill. Dear JN: In 1802, when Thomas Jefferson was president, Eleuthere Irenee du Pont broke ground in Wilmington, Del., for the company that bears his name. Ele, born in France, studied advanced explosive techniques and black powder manufacturing under chemist Antoine Lavoisier. Between 1802 and 1880, black powder was Eles sole product, and DuPont became the leading powder supplier to the U.S. government. World War I created unprecedented opportunity for DuPont. It became the worlds largest dynamite producer and researched new uses for the raw materials of explosives, specically for the production of paints, lacquers and textiles. During World War II, DuPont launched its involvement in atomic explosives, building a full-scale plutonium plant for atomic weapons in Washington state. And then DuPont began to expand in earnest. Today this $37 billionrevenue science and technology company has seven divisions: 1) Electronics & Communications: photopolymers and photovoltaics. 2) Industrial Biosciences: vatsful of enzymes. 3) Nutrition & Health: emulsiers, gums, soy-based food ingredients, sweeteners. 4) Performance Chemicals: plastics and coatings, textiles, mining, pulp/ paper, water treatment, and numerous industrial products. 5) Performance Materials: engineering polymers, elastomers, lm, packaging, chemical processing, electronics. 6) Safety & Protection: nonwovens, aramids and solid surfaces for various indus tries. 7) Pharmaceuticals: propellants, rare sugars, antihypertensive drugs and nutraceuticals. DuPont (DD-$71.25) has morphed into a multibillion-dollarrevenue conglomerate with a complementary variety of products in its marketing bag. But with this pastiche of product and a 212-year history, the company is cursed with dispassionate, inutile and low-IQ leader ship, which manages DD while in a perpetual state of ennui. And the stocks dreary performance (its the same price today as it was when you inherited it in 1996) certainly matches managements capability. Since 1996, as the number of outstanding shares has been reduced by 75 per cent, dividend growth has been achingly feeble, and capital spending has declined. Return on capital and shareholder equity have barely budged. Yes, revenues have grown 2.7 percent annually, and comparative share earnings have grown 1.6 percent annually. But several evil yetis and golems seem to be holding DDs stock price down. Something has been hugely wrong with this company for several generations. And many may agree, because with the exception of a strong buy recommendation by Oppenheimer in 2009, I cant nd any excitement about it on Wall Street. Certainly, few of DDs 64,000 employees are delighted with their stock option program. But things are happening that may be good. Nelson Nellie Peltz, among the most vainglorious nancial privateers who only sail troubled waters, has guns aimed at DD. Though his Trian Fund Management owns 3 percent of the stock, he proclaims that DDs conglomerate structure is destroying shareholder value. Nellie who wants DD to divest into smaller, independently managed companies has participated in a series of reluctant discussions with CEO Ellen Kullman. And this may be productive. DDs board recently authorized a $5 billion share repurchase program and announced steps to streamline its overweening, bungling bureaucracy. The board plans to implement sundry cost-cutting measures and will spin off its low-performing, volatile Performance Chemical division. As a result, Deutsche Bank recently suggested that DD should be valued at $85. But Nellie wants more and believes a breakup could double the current share price. Of course, the process of divestiture and cost savings measures might force 6,500 employees from their jobs. Though corporate raiders such as Peltz, Carl Icahn, Dan Loeb, Bill Ackman and David Einhorn will greatly improve the price of a stock making billions in the game theyve also been responsible for the loss of hundreds of thousands of jobs. Keep DD for another year. Email Malcolm Berko at on to DuPont Malcolm Berko Managing risk is one of the tasks a small-business owner must perform. One way is to manage oper ations in a manner that will eliminate or reduce a risk. A second way is to purchase insurance that will offset the cost of losses from a risk. Depending on the risk, one, or the other, or both can be used. The risk of excessive concentration comes in different forms: selling a single product line that might become obsolete, becoming dependent on one customer, granting a single customer excessive credit, and becoming dependent on just one vendor, among others. These are operational risks that can be minimized by doing the obvious avoid the concentration. Stay on top of changes in your industry and keep your eye out for new products and vendors. Run an active advertising program, continuously seeking new customers. Monitor accounts receivable monthly and do not let any customer slide into delinquency. Sounds easy, but many small-business owners are so pressed with daily business that they let these things slide. If a company sells outside the U.S. and Canada, it can buy business credit insurance, which provides coverage against a foreign customer failing to pay. All businesses are at risk from events beyond their control. A business that owns real or personal property should buy property insurance, which covers damage or loss to its property caused by events such as re, smoke, wind and hail storms, civil disobedience and vandalism. All-risk policies cover a wide-range of incidents and perils, except those noted in the policy. Peril-specic policies cover losses from only those perils listed in the policy, such as damage from oods. A special form of peril risk policy, business interruption insurance, reimburses a business for loss of income during a period in which it has not been able to operate due to a covered event, such as a re. Homeowners insurance normally does not cover the property of a home-based business. You can add a rider to the homeowners policy to cover those risks. A small business with multiple owners, whether organized as a partnership, an LLC or a corporation, runs the risk of damage to the business as a result of a dispute among the partners, the death of one of the partners, or the desire to sell out by one of the partners. These events can be extremely messy and, during the mess, the business can decline or die. The best way to avoid the mess is to have a written agreement among the partners that details how adverse events will be handled, as well as normal business issues. A business also can purchase key man insurance that, if a partner dies, provides funds to buy that persons share of the business back from his heirs.

The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 WIRE Page 9 STATE NEWS TALLAHASSEE (AP) A widening scandal focusing on the treatment of Florida prison inmates includes new allegations that Gov. Rick Scotts own top watchdog was warned about the possible cover-up of two suspicious prison deaths but did not do anything. The Miami Herald reported Friday that the governors chief inspector general received an anonymous letter in October 2012 that included details about prisoners who had died while in state custody. But instead of opening an inquiry, Melinda Miguel turned it over to the inspector general at the Department of Corrections, who conducted a cursory review. Miguel works directly for Scott, but so far the governor has not said anything about the scandal, which has led to the rings of prison employees. The questions surrounding the prison systems handling of the cases has resulted in the Florida Department of Law Enforcement being placed in charge of investigating 82 cases in which prison inmates died from non-natural causes. A spokesman for Scott did not immediately respond to questions about the report. The states main prison agency also did not respond to questions. The Herald reported that an anonymous letter addressed to Scott and stamped as being received by Miguel included details about the deaths of Randall Jordan-Aparo at Franklin Correctional Institution in 2010 and Darren Rainey at Dade Correctional in 2012. Investigations into both deaths had been closed at the time by the DOC. Instead of responding to the claims in the letter, Miguel turned it over to DOCs inspector general, who conducted a cursory report, the paper said. A summary of the DOC report notes some staff violations in connection with Jordan-Aparos death, and states that Miami-Dade police were handling Raineys case. This past July the warden at Dade was red for his handling of the investigation into Raineys death. Rainey, a mentally ill prisoner, was punished in 2012 with a shower so hot that his skin separated from his body. The Herald also reported that this past March Miguel refused to give DOC investigators whistle-blower protection after they told her that the departments own inspector general was pressuring them not to charge anyone in the Jordan-Aparo case. She also refused to give whis tle-blower protection to a DOC probation ofcer who also told her about suspicious aspects of Jordan-Aparos death. That ofcer was later red.Report: Scotts top inspector told about cover-up TALLAHASSEE (News Service of Florida) The controversial and at-times muddled search for a new president of Florida State University includes an expected tab of about $160,000 for consultants. FSU Board of Trustees Chairman Allan Bense said in an email Thursday that it was well worth the cost. The monthslong search process resulted in inuential state Sen. John Thrasher, the odds-on favorite, getting offered the job Tuesday. More than half the cost came after the school had a change in search consul tants, which was in part a result of the process being temporarily halted in May with the intention of considering only Thrasher, a St. Augustine Republican who until Wednesday was also chairman of Gov. Rick Scotts re-election campaign. Jennifer Proftt, United Faculty of Florida-Florida State University Chapter president, praised the work of consultant Alberto Pimentel and his rm Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates, which was brought in to restart the search after the initial consultant resigned. However, Proftt called the overall spending a waste, as the sevenmonth search ended with Thrasher, as many expected, getting the job. While I think Pimentel earned his money as he did recruit stellar, distinguished, and experienced academic leaders, in total it appears that it was a waste of taxpayer money as the decision was made long before the search process began, Proftt said in an email. Out of 39 applications for the FSU presidents position, including Thrasher, a search committee brought in 11 candidates to interview. Out of that list, four nalists were recommended to the Board of Trustees: Thrasher; Michele G. Wheatly, who until June had been provost at West Virginia University; Colorado State University System Chancellor Michael V. Martin; and Richard B. Marchase, University of Alabama at Birmingham vice president for research and economic development. Wheatly, Martin and Marchase were among those recruited by Pimentel. Bense, who was described Wednesday by Thrasher as a good friend, also defended the work of Pimentel and the cost of the search.Consultants carry hefty price for FSU presidential search | STATE NEWS BRIEFSHomeless man testifies in loud music killing caseJACKSONVILLE (AP) A homeless man living in his truck helped police solve the fatal shooting of a black teenager by a white man during an argument over loud music outside a Jacksonville convenience store, according to testimony in the rst-degree murder trial on Friday. Shawn Lee Atkins testied that in November 2012 he witnessed a man shoot into a sport utility vehicle carrying four teens, killing Jordan Davis, 17, of Marietta, Ga. Atkins memorized the shooters license plate and gave the tag number to store employees. Michael Dunn, 47, is being retried for rst-degree murder after a jury convicted him of attempted second-degree murder for ring the shots but deadlocked on the murder charge.Donald Trump, neighbors bicker over golf courseDORAL (AP) Donald Trump has angered some South Florida residents by installing a fence of bushy trees that blocks their views of greens and fairways at the Trump National Doral golf complex in Doral. Trump told the Miami Herald the Areca palm trees are part of his plan to improve the world-renowned golf resort and that they help give golfers a feeling of isolation from everything but the course. Residents claim they have legal rights to the views based on agreements between the previous golf course owner and developers of nearby homes. Theyre petitioning the city, seeking an order to cease construction until an agreement is reached.CSX train track damaged in Lake WalesLAKE WALES (AP) The Polk County Sheriffs Ofce advises motorists that train track damage has caused them to close Highway 60 eastbound in Lake Wales. Deputies say several vehicles were damaged early Friday when they struck the damaged CSX tracks. The sheriffs ofce says that for an unknown reason, a large portion of the track became dislodged from the main track, creating a signicant obstruction.Redneck Christmas Parade canceledCHUMUCKLA (AP) A Florida Panhandle communitys Redneck Christmas Parade has been canceled, with organizers complaining that attendees have gotten out of hand in recent years. The nearly 20-year-old event was run by the Chumuckla Athletic Association. CAA president Renee Melvin told the Northwest Florida Daily News that she used to take her family to the event before she even started working with the association, but she would never take her children now. Melvin says local businesses and residents have had major issues during the parade in recent years. And the bad behavior mostly related to excessive drinking has persisted, despite organizers paying the Santa Rosa County Sheriffs Ofce thousands of dollars for security. The parade was created to raise money for community events and to provide toys, clothes and food for needy families around Christmas. rfntttrffntb nn nnfrfntbt rnrnfrn rfrrfnr tbnnb bbbffrb bfbbbffr bnbbbn bbnn fnnrffn rf rfrn rfnt b rfrn rfnt b rfrn fnt b r f nttbttrr ntt fb tb bt tr fbtt ftbnrtf r ff nnt bf 487013 Luxury For Less.2015 LINCOLN MKCw -W#5LFUJ1283636 MO.

Sophomore quarterback Victor Mellor got the scoring started for the Manta Rays with a 64-yard burst through the left side with 10 minutes, 7 seconds left in the rst quarter. Mellors touchdown nished a three-play, 73-yard drive on the games rst offensive series. That (the long touchdown run) hyped us up, Mellor said. But really, working out hard during the summer helped us a lot. Mellor started in place of Jeremy Snook, who was out with bruised ribs.

The Pirates were ready, doing whatever they wanted against a hapless Lehigh squad that barely moved the ball. Brennan Norus scored three rst-half touchdowns and the defense recovered four fumbles as the Pirates geared up for their district opener against Fort Myers on Thursday with a 49-0 victory at rainy Pirates Cove.

HOMETOWN HEROESRandall strives for stickier handsChowan University wide receiver Antjuan Randall is trying to regain his touch. The senior starter out of North Port High School is second on the team with 11 receptions for 76 yards, but he has had many more chances for catches. Five passes were incomplete to him in the opener, seven in the second game. We spread the ball out, he said. I just got to make the play. Randall had one drop in each of the second and third games. And though he had to dive to try to make a couple of catches, he said, Those are still plays that got to be made. Aside from his receiving duties, he is the teams top kickoff returner. He has 10 returns for 312 yards, including a 95-yard touchdown in the opener. The fourth-quarter kickoff return helped Chowan come from behind to beat Fayetteville State University. I just hit the middle, and I had to beat the kicker, he said. He tried to grab me. The team has gone with a different kickoff return scheme this season, he said. Everythings supposed to go up the middle, said Randall, who has three punt returns for 14 yards. It works pretty well.MORE FOOTBALLIndiana University sophomore linebacker Clyde Newton, a Charlotte High School graduate, had three tackles in a win over University of Missouri.

I dont think Dannys racist, Deng said. Deng signed with the Miami Heat this summer after strongly considering an offer from the Hawks, who are reeling from a pair of racially insensitive incidents. Hawks co-owner Bruce Levenson said he would sell his controlling share of the team over comments made in email in 2012, and then came the revelation that Ferry referred to Deng as someone who has a little African in him on a conference call with team ofcials this summer. Ferry was repeating comments that were made in a scouting report, the author of which remains unclear. Its not something I want to hold onto for the rest of my career or the rest of my life, Deng said. I had a chance to speak to Danny. I really believe that hes really sorry for what he said. Whether it came from him or wherever it came from, I think the main focus really should be how we move on forward. ...

In doing so, the longtime president showed he remains as influential as ever even as he moves closer to a fifth term leading footballs governing body. Blatter was in combative form at a news conference after a two-day executive committee meeting, and used his chance to seize back control of an agenda dominated for a week by ethics prosecutor Michael Garcia. Still, even on a day when Blatter told his executive committee he intends to run for re-election next year, he had to spend more time talking about a corruption investigation when addressing the media. ...

Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed made their Ryder Cup debut by handing European stalwart Ian Poulter his worst loss ever and his rst loss in eight matches by building a 6-up lead through 11 holes and winning, 5 and 4, to take the early lead in morning fourballs matches. That didnt last long and neither did the young Americans. Spieth and Reed sat out in the afternoon. Europe won three matches and halved the other its best record ever in foursomes to build a 5-3 lead. For our guys to react the way they did, for all four matches to be up after six holes there was blue on the board for every single match was a terric response, captain Paul McGinley said. It shows a huge amount of character that we have on the team, huge amount of talent that we can come out with such strong pairings in the afternoon and a great response and resilience. Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley became the rst U.S. partnership to start out 4-0 with a great nish of their own Bradleys eagle putt on the 16th hole and Mickelsons timely tee shot that set up a birdie from the bunker on the 18th hole to beat Garcia and McIlroy in fourballs. But they faltered badly in foursomes, leading to some second-guessing of Watsons decision to send them out again and leave Spieth and Reed on the bench. Even the 65-year-old captain had his doubts. I thought at the time it was the best decision not to play them, Watson said. Spieth said he was told that the morning perfor mance would dictate who played in the afternoon and he was percent certain he and Reed would be going back out. Reed pleaded his case with Watson, though both later said they were willing to do whatever Watson wanted. When I told Patrick that he wasnt going to play in the afternoon it was comical at the time, not so comical now I said, How does that make you feel? He said, Well, Im all right with it. He said, Well, really Captain, Im not all right with it. I said, Thats the way I want you to be. Youre going to be second-guessed, Watson said. And obviously, youre going to second-guess me on that decision right there. McIlroy was on the verge of becoming the rst No. 1 player in the world to lose both matches on the rst day of the Ryder Cup since Tiger Woods in 2002. He came up with enough key shots and big putts none bigger than on the 17th to earn a half-point. For the team, it was huge, McIlroy said. Personally for Sergio and I, just nice to be able to walk away from today with at least something.RYDERFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOEuropes Sergio Garcia celebrates after chipping out of bunker and making a birdie during a fourball match at the Ryder Cup on Friday at Gleneagles, Scotland. | GOLF SCOREBOARDRyder CupAt Gleneagles Resort (PGA Centenary Course) Gleneagles, Scotland Yardage: 7,243; Par: 72 EUROPE 5, UNITED STATES 3 Fourballs United States 2, Europe 1 Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson, Europe, def.

The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 SP Page 3 Harvick nabs 7th pole of year BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSDOVER, Del. Kevin Harvick turned a lap at 162.933 mph to earn the pole Friday at Dover International Speedway, leading the eld for the third Chase race. Led by Harvick, Chase for the Sprint Cup championship drivers took the top four spots and six of 10. Kyle Busch starts second, followed by Denny Hamlin and Brad Keselowski. Hamlin needed the good qualifying run. He enters the weekend 13th in the points race, and only the top 12 Sunday night advance. Its the most important race of my career because its the most signicant of my career, Hamlin said. Weve got to get past this weekend with a shot to win the title. If not, you become somewhat irrelevant. Jeff Gordon is sixth and Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jimmie Johnson is eighth. The rest of the Chase eld has Kasey Kahne 12th, Matt Kenseth 14th, Joey Logano 16th, Carl Edwards 18th, Ryan Newman 20th, Aric Almirola 21st, Kurt Busch 22nd, Dale Earnhardt Jr. 25th, Greg Bife 27th, and AJ Allmendinger 28th. Four drivers will be eliminated after every third race, and a win guarantees a driver an automatic berth into the next round. The rst cutoff race is Dover. Logano enjoys career year: For a driver once nicknamed Sliced Bread, there was a time Joey Logano worried his career was toast. Now, Logano is rolling as he prepares to start 16th Sunday at Dover International Speedway. Hes easily enjoying the best season of his career. And maybe even his best week. Logano won last weeks second Chase for the Sprint Cup championship race at New Hampshire, what he considers his home track. The victory cemented his spot in the second round of the Chase, joining Team Penske teammate Brad Keselowski as the only two drivers locked into the field. Logano capped his week with a contract extension with owner Roger Penske that will keep him behind the wheel of the No. 22 Ford for years. Empire Sprints Series does not drug test: The sprint car series in which Kevin Ward Jr. raced the night he was fatally struck by a car driven by Tony Stewart does not drug test its drivers. Chuck Miller, race director and president for the Empire Super Sprints circuit, told The Associated Press the series rule book prohibits drug or alcohol use at the track. Miller also said drivers are prohibited from competing while under the influence. But, he added there are currently no testing requirements in the rules. That rule can be changed only by a membership vote at the annual meeting, which will be held in January. Ontario County District Attorney Michael Tantillo said this week Ward was under the influence of marijuana the night of Aug. 9 at Canandaigua Motorsports Park in upstate New York. The levels determined were enough to impair judgment, Tantillo said in announcing a grand jury decided Stewart would not be charged in Wards death. Newman sponsor to return: Mortgage lender Quicken Loans will return as Ryan Newmans primary sponsor in 2015. Quicken Loans did not say how many races it will sponsor for the No. 31 Chevrolet. The 2015 season will mark the fourth year Quicken Loans has teamed with Newman. Newman drives for Richard Childress Racing and is 12th in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship standings. AUTO RACING ROUNDUP HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. For Tony Stewart, there was no greater joy than escaping his everyday life and climbing behind the wheel of a sprint car. He loves the feel, the way they drive, the purity he nds at all the tiny dirt tracks across the country. When he broke his leg racing his sprint car a year ago, an injury that sidelined him for six months, he was almost deant in his desire to never give up his hobby. But after the death of Kevin Ward Jr., who was killed when Stewarts car struck him as Ward walked on an upstate New York dirt track on Aug. 9, Stewart may never get back in a sprint car. I would say its going to be a long time before you ever see me in a sprint car again, if ever. I dont have any desire at this moment to get back in a car, Stewart told The Associated Press in his rst interview since a grand jury decided he would not be charged in Wards death. If I had the option to go right now to a race, I wouldnt. I dont even know when Ill go to a sprint car race again to watch. I can promise you its going to be a long time before you ever see me back in one. Sitting on his couch Thursday night in his Huntersville, N.C., home, a sprint car race in Arkansas was on mute on his television. Stewarts eyes were constantly drawn to the action. He cant help himself. Its where he came from, how he made his name and the one form of racing he simply couldnt walk away from, even as he was criticized for jeopardizing his lucrative NASCAR career by messing around in the dirt. He just couldnt give it up. Not when he became a multi-millionaire and one of NASCARs biggest names, not after good friend Jason Lefer was killed in a sprint car race last year, and not after his own injury led to three surgeries, a month in bed and forced him to miss NASCAR races for the rst time in his career. Stewart is addicted to the simplicity of sprint car racing, to racing at venues across the country where the crowd is starving for gimmick-free racing. He didnt care that a eld full of drivers of varying ages and talent were racing for purses that seldom reach $5,000. He made it his goal to give back to the sprint car community at every turn, especially after his accident. He improved the part that broke and caused his broken leg, and spent $110,000 on resuits and helmets for nearly 50 drivers who needed up dated safety equipment. Chuck Miller, race director and President of the Empire Super Sprints series that Stewart and Ward were racing in that night, understands how Stewart feels, but believes it would be a blow to sprint car racing if he never returned.Stewart unsure of sprints return AUTO RACING: Tony StewartBy JENNA FRYERASSOCIATED PRESSAP FILE PHOTOTony Stewart gets a hug from former crew chief Steve Addington in the garage last month at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Kluber struck out 11 in eight innings, and Cleveland beat Tampa Bay 1-0 on Friday. The game concluded about an hour before the Indians were eliminated from playoff contention by Oaklands 6-2 victory at Texas. The As victory also put an end to Klubers breakout season. Kluber (18-9), who allowed ve hits and walked two, is tied for the AL lead in wins. He recorded his 11th double-digit strikeout game of the season and leads the majors with 269 strikeouts. He looked like he was on a mission, but hes looked like that all season, Indians manager Terry Francona said. That was Corey Kluber at his best, and hes done it so many times. The race for the AL Cy Young Award appears to be down to Kluber and Seattles Felix Hernandez. The Mariners ace, who was roughed up in his last outing, is expected to start Sunday. Kluber, as he has all season, deected talk of any personal achievement. Its not my call, Kluber said when asked about his chances. It would be a great accomplishment, but the biggest thing is the team winning. Cody Allen, who pitched a perfect ninth for his 24th save, believes Kluber should win baseballs biggest prize for a pitcher. Hes been our horse all year, Allen said. Hes an elite talent. Hes a guy you can run out there and match him up against anybody. Every time he pitches we have a pretty good chance to win. A guy like him is pretty special.INDIANS 1, RAYS 0Tampa Bay AB R H BI BB SO Avg.

The Diamondbacks are assured of at least a tie for the worst record in the majors this season, having lost 96 games entering the nal series of the year. The ring was announced Friday, 15 minutes before a news conference to introduce new general manager Dave Stewart. It was my trigger to pull, Chief Baseball Ofcer Tony La Russa said. Bench coach Alan Trammell also was dismissed, but will stay on to manage the nal three games, a weekend series against St. Louis. We just decided that being fresh, starting fresh with not just the upstairs leadership team but downstairs, is more consistent with what we are doing as an organization, La Russa said at the news conference. Gibson took over as interim manager in 2010 when A.J. Hinch was red, then got the job without the interim title. In 2011, his rst full season, he led the Diamondbacks to the NL West title and was named major league manager of the year. Brewers to retire number to honor Selig: Retiring Commissioner Bud Selig will have a number retired in his honor next season by the Milwaukee Brewers, the team he founded 44 years ago. Brewers owner Mark Attanasio made the announcement on Friday, saying the retirement of jersey No. 1 would be the first in a series of honors for Selig. A Milwaukee native, Selig bought the Seattle Pilots out of bankruptcy in 1970 and moved them to Milwaukee, eight days before the 1970 season began with a game against the California Angels at County Stadium. Jeter sits out game: New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter asked out of the lineup for Friday nights game at Boston something neither Jeter nor manager Joe Girardi could remember him doing before. I dont think I really slept maybe a couple of hours, Jeter told reporters. I dont know if I could play tonight if I was playing tonight. Last night was as special as it gets. Jeter said he would be in the lineup today and Sunday but as designated hitter, so his final memories as a shortstop would be in Yankee Stadium. Girardi told Jeter he could play any position but pitcher or catcher this weekend including manager. Around the majors: Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton should resume swinging a bat today, but he is not expected to play in the final series of the season. Philadelphia fired assistant general manager and amateur scouting director Marti Wolever. Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf said the Chicago White Sox will retire Paul Konerkos No. 14 and indicated they will erect a statue of the slugger at some point. Bobby Abreu, a 40-year-old reserve outfielder, said he will retire at the end of the season. Arizona fires manager, coach MLB NOTEBOOKBrewers plan Selig honor; Jeter sits outBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Tigers fall; KC gets to playoffsBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSDETROIT Rick Porcello allowed six runs in less than four innings Friday, and Detroit lost 11-4 to Minnesota on a night the Tigers had hoped to clinch the AL Central title. Detroit could have wrapped up the division with a victory and a Kansas City loss, but Porcello (15-13) endured another rough outing down the stretch, and the Tigers fell way behind early. Oswaldo Arcia hit a two-run homer in the rst, and Minnesota led 6-0 in the fourth. Porcello allowed four earned runs and six hits in 323 innings. He is 0-4 with a 6.20 ERA in September. A.J. Achter (1-0) earned his rst career win with a solid relief effort. Royals 3, White Sox 1: In Chicago, Kansas City clinched a playoff spot for the first time in 29 years behind seven scoreless innings from Jeremy Guthrie. Kansas City secured at least a wild card and ended the longest active postseason drought among the major North American sports leagues. Not since George Brett led the Royals to a World Series victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in 1985 had they reached the playoffs. Athletics 6, Rangers 2: In Arlington, Texas, Josh Reddick drove in three runs, Scott Kazmir won for the first time in seven starts and Oakland moved to the cusp of its third consecutive playoff appearance. The As, who snapped a three-game losing streak, would clinch an American League wild-card spot with a loss by Seattle at the AL West champion Los Angeles Angels later Friday. Yankees 3, Red Sox 2: In Boston, the Yankees had five rookies in the starting lineup for the first time in more than 30 years and the Red Sox started seven, including pitcher Steven Wright. David Robertson pitched the ninth for his 39th save a night after failed to protect a three-run lead. Phillies 5, Braves 4: In Philadelphia, Jonathan Papelbon made his first appearance in Philadelphia since he made a lewd gesture as he left the field, closing the Phillies victory with a scoreless ninth inning. Papelbon received a standing ovation when he got Joey Terdoslavich out on a grounder to end it for his 39th save in 43 chances. Pirates 3, Reds 1: In Cincinnati, Travis Snider and Andrew McCutchen hit consecutive run-scoring doubles in the eighth inning, and Pittsburgh kept the pressure on NL Central-leading St. Louis. The Pirates have won five of six and 17 of 21 overall. They began the day one behind St. Louis for the division lead. Blue Jays 4, Orioles 2: In Toronto, rookie Dalton Pompey had three extra-base hits, Drew Hutchison won for the first time in three starts and Toronto ensured that the Orioles will not finish with the best record in the American League. The Los Angeles Angels will have home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. Nationals 4-7, Marlins 0-15: In Washington, Kike Hernandezs grand slam, J.T. Realmutos three-run triple and Adeiny Hechavarrias four hits helped Miami beat the NL East champion Washington in the nightcap of a day-night doubleheader. After clinching home-field advantage throughout the NL playoffs by winning the opener 4-0 on Doug Fisters three-hitter, Washington used only two regulars in the nightcap. Astros 3, Mets 1: In New York, Mets pitcher Jonathon Niese left his final start of the season with an elevated heart rate, a condition he has dealt with before, and Houston rallied against reliever Carlos Torres.

The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 Page 5 THE COUCH POTATOS PICKS COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Week 5 at a glanceTENNESSEE at AT No. 12 GEORGIA Noon, ESPN Georgia is the more desperate team here. The Bulldogs are 0-1 in SEC play after losing to South Carolina. Georgia rebounded last week with a 66-0 nonconference win over Troy. Tennessee begins SEC play two weeks after a 34-10 loss at Oklahoma, which revealed Tennessee is not quite back under second-year Coach Butch Jones. CINCINNATI at No. 22 OHIO STATE 3 p.m., Big Ten Network Ohio State has not lost to an in-state school since 1921 (Oberlin). Quarterback Gunner Kiel gives the Bearcats a decent chance to end the steak. Kiel is a top-shelf talent who landed in Cincinnati after breaking previous commitments to Indiana, Notre Dame and Louisiana State. Coach Les Miles said Kiel didnt have the chest to compete at LSU, but Kiel has been a nice fit at Cincinnati. MISSOURI at No. 13 SOUTH CAROLINA 7 p.m., ESPN Missouri is coming off an awful home loss to Indiana; South Carolina is coming off an awful win on the road at Vanderbilt. South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier staged an epic postgame news conference after Vanderbilt ran two kickoffs back for touchdowns. Spurrier called the 48-34 win one of the worst Ive had, no question. OREGON STATE at No. 18 SOUTHERN CAL 10:30 p.m., ESPN Where were you in 1960 when? Oregon State Coach Mike Riley said he was a third-grader living in Oregon the last time the Beavers defeated USC at the Coliseum. USC has won 33 of the last 37 games in the series, but the schools have split the last six. Chris Dufresne, Los Angeles Times STATE CAPSULESSOUTH FLORIDA (2-2) at No. 19 WISCONSIN (2-1) Noon, Camp Randall Stadium, Madison, Wis. TV: ESPNU RADIO: 1220 AM LINE: Wisconsin by 34. SERIES: First meeting. STORYLINES: An upset against a top 25 team would ease lingering pressure on second-year South Florida coach Willie Taggart. Wisconsin has won 30 consecutive nonconference home games, second in the country only to LSUs 42-game streak. The key will be the Wisconsin running game against the South Florida defense. The Badgers have their swagger back after bulldozing Bowling Green for a Big Ten-record 644 yards. The Bulls did hold the Huskies to 57 yards on 26 carries last week, but slowing down motivated star RB Melvin Gordon is an entirely different challenge. South Florida will try to get tailback Marlon Mack, who has run for 502 yards and five touchdowns on 89 carries, racking up yardage. However, Wisconsin has held foes to an average of 91 yards on the ground. No. 1 FLORIDA STATE (3-0, 1-0 ACC) at N.C. STATE (4-0, 0-0) 3:30 p.m., Carter-Finley Stadium, Raleigh, N.C. TV: ABC RADIO: 820 AM, 1040 AM LINE: Florida State by 18. SERIES: Florida State leads 23-11. STORYLINES: The top-ranked Seminoles are looking to extend their program-record win streak to 20 games, the longest in the country. FSU is going for a 17th straight win against league opponents, the last loss coming to the Wolfpack in Raleigh two years ago. In fact, FSU has lost its last two visits to N.C. State. As for N.C. State, the program has already surpassed last years win total and gets its first test after a soft opening schedule. N.C. State has built a productive ground game with a backfield rotation of Shadrach Thornton, Matt Dayes and Tony Creecy and the team has three consecutive 200-yard rushing games for the first time since 1994. The Wolfpack must move the ball effectively against a run defense that ranks 79th nationally (170.7 yards) to keep Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston on the FSU sideline. DUKE (4-0, 0-0 ACC) at MIAMI (2-2, 0-1) Sun Life Stadium, Miami Gardens TV: ESPN2 RADIO: No local affiliates. LINE: Miami by 6. SERIES: Miami leads 9-2. STORYLINES: Quarterback Brad Kaaya continues to develop for Miami. He threw for a freshman record 359 yards in last weeks loss to Nebraska. His yardage total has risen in each of his last four starts (174, 177, 342, 359). His 359 passing yards surpassed the previous school standard, which he posted the week before. That will come in handy should another shootout develop between the teams. Duke won last year 48-30. In fact, Duke has scored 93 points against Miami in the last two seasons. Only one other program Syracuse, with 99 has scored more points against the Hurricanes in a two-year span than the Blue Devils have. Another victory like that will probably propel the Blue Devils into the AP Top 25 poll next week. They are the first team outside the rankings this week and they are already ranked in the coaches poll.STATE SCHEDULEJacksonville at Butler, noon South Florida at Wisconsin, noon Florida State at N.C.

Florida State has had plenty of trouble at North Carolina State especially when carrying a national ranking. The top-ranked Seminoles have lost their last two games in Raleigh heading into todays game, including one two years ago that was their last Atlantic Coast Conference loss. Overall, ranked FSU teams have lost ve of seven in Raleigh dating to 1998. The eld sits close to you, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. Its down in a pit so its a little different, and they have a passionate fan base and they have very good play ers and theyre coached well. You combine all those things, it makes for a tough venue. Florida State (3-0, 1-0 ACC) was ranked No. 3 when it last visited in October 2012. The Seminoles took a 16-0 lead before the Wolfpack rallied to win 17-16 on a last-second touchdown pass. I dont know if it was a turning point, Fisher said. It was some awareness and a wakeup call knowing that you had a game and you let it slip away. Hopefully it doesnt happen again. FSU has won 16 in a row against league opponents since and owns a school-record 19 consecutive wins overall, which includes last years unbeaten run to the national title behind Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Jameis Winston. Winston is back from a one-game suspension for making an obscene public comment on campus last week. Backup Sean Maguire led the Seminoles to an over time home win against Clemson. The Wolfpack (4-0) have already surpassed last seasons win total against a soft opening schedule and beat Presbyterian 42-0 last week. Things will get much tougher with eight straight league games for a team coming off its rst winless ACC record since 1959. We just talk about it as the opportunity thats in front of us, Wolfpack coach Dave Doeren said. There isnt an athlete in the world that doesnt want to play against the best. Theyre the best until they get beat so its an opportunity for us to play against the best team in the nation. And you know, why not us? Thats the approach were taking. N.C. State has built a productive ground game with the rotation of Shadrach Thornton, Matt Dayes and Tony Creecy. The Wolfpack averaged 248.8 yards rushing in the rst four games, including three straight 200-yard rushing performances for the rst time since 1994. Were really ready to step up to the plate and take the challenge, Thornton said. They may have caught a break when Florida State lost starting nose tackle Nile LawrenceStample for the season after tearing a pectoral muscle last week. Thats a loss on the interior defensive line for a team that ranked 81st nationally against the run.Florida State returns to Raleigh wary of another surprise endingBy AARON BEARDASSOCIATED PRESS AP PHOTOFlorida State coach Jimbo Fisher leads his team into Carter-Finlay Stadium today, looking to end an incongruous streak given the Seminoles recent success: Florida State has lost its last two games in Raleigh. QUARTER REPORTIf you are growing tired of offenses dominating college football, youre out of luck. Points are piling up at record rates again. The days of defenses ruling the day in the Southeastern Conference are done. Its hard to tell the difference between the SEC and Pac-12 now. Some things to know about the fourth weekend of the season:1SCORE! Through four weeks, FBS teams are averaging 31.64 points per game. That would be a record, breaking the one set last season (29.53), which broke the record set the year before (29.48). Scoring has been steadily rising in college football for years, including every year since 2010. You can find high-scoring games everywhere, Thirty-two teams are averaging at least 40 points. Early season mismatches tend to inflate scoring, so its likely the numbers will come down as conference play picks up, but another record seems to be in the works.2BY GROUND OR AIR No. 6 Texas A&M (4-0, 1-0 SEC) and Arkansas meet in Arlington, Texas, in an intriguing matchup between two teams that gain a lot of yards and score a lot of points in drastically different ways. The Aggies offense has had a smooth quarterback transition from Johnny Manziel to Kenny Hill and is averaging 405 yards passing per game, which ranks fourth nationally. Arkansas (3-1, 0-1), much improved under second-year coach Bret Bielema, likes to run the ball. The Razorbacks rank seventh nationally with 324.5 yards rushing per game, and premier backs Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams have combined for 881 yards and 12 touchdowns.3RUNNING WILD Arkansas is not the only team that has turned ground and pound into a way to light up the scoreboard. Twelve teams are averaging more than 300 yards per game. Wisconsin, Bielemas old team, is No. 1 at 359.7 after going for almost 650 on the ground against Bowling Green last week. Last year, five teams averaged more than 300 yards rushing per game, with Auburn first at 328.3.4WALLACE ON TARGET Mississippis Bo Wallace has been the nations most accurate passer so far this season, completing 75.5 percent (71 of 94) of his attempts through three games. Thats helped the No. 10 Rebels (3-0) to their highest national ranking since 2009, and they can improve to 4-0 for the first time since 1970 with a victory against Memphis. A win also would set up a mammoth matchup against No. 3 Alabama on Oct. 4 in Oxford, Mississippi. Count Mississippi coach Hugh Freeze among those who think the gaudy offensive numbers are here to stay. Associated Press MADISON, Wis. South Florida is hoping to throw up a roadblock to Wisconsins running game. The 19th-ranked Badgers are on a roll after rushing for a Big Tenrecord 644 yards last week against Bowling Green. Saturdays game against the Bulls will be running back Melvin Gordons rst outing since his career-best performance of 253 yards and ve touchdowns. South Florida (4-0) has its own running back off to a good start in freshman Marlon Mack. He has 502 yards and ve touchdowns on 89 carries. But Wisconsin (2-1) will be the toughest defense that South Florida has faced. The Badgers are the only team in the country that has yet to allow a touchdown in the red zone. Bruins romp: Ishmael Adams returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown and an interception 95 yards for another score, sparking No. 11 UCLAs 62-27 trouncing of No. 15 Arizona State in Tempe, Ariz., on Thursday. UCLA (4-0, 1-0 Pac-12) won its first three games by a combined 18 points against non-ranked opponents. The Bruins turned a matchup of the past two Pac-12 South champions into a rout, scoring 28 points during a 7-minute span of the second and third quarters. UCLA had 582 total yards and scored the most points by an opponent in the 55-year history of Sun Devil Stadium. Garman leads Cowboys: Daxx Garman threw for 370 yards and four touchdowns to help No. 24 Oklahoma State beat Texas Tech 45-35 on Thursday in Stillwater, Okla. Garman completed 17 of 31 passes and ran for a score in his second start since stepping in for the injured J.W. Walsh. Marcell Ateman had career highs of six catches and 130 yards, James Washington had three catches for 87 yards and two touchdowns, and Desmond Roland ran for 86 yards and a score for Oklahoma State (3-1, 1-0 Big 12). Davis Webb passed for 374 yards and four touchdowns for Texas Tech (2-2, 0-1) before leaving the game in the fourth quarter because of a left shoulder injury.Bulls face big challengeBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS COLLEGE FOOTBALL NOTEBOOKBruins and Cowboys roll By La Mesa RV of Sanford 2333 El Jobean Rd in Port Charlotte9a to dusk daily For Info: 800-269-4583 Class A Diesel Pushers Class A Gas Class C 5th Wheels Travel Trailers Luxury Economical They are all here in one place!

Im very excited and ready to go, Murphy said after Fridays practice, the teams last before traveling to Pittsburgh for Sundays game. I think we just need to do what the coaches tell us to do, execute the game plan and well be ne. Murphy takes the place of receiver Chris Owusu, who had a touchdown catch in the season opener but didnt play any offensive snaps in last weeks loss at Atlanta, limited by an ankle injury. Murphy and rookie Robert Herron will be the speed inside to complement the Bucs 6-foot-5 targets: veteran Vincent Jackson and rookie Mike Evans. The Bucs will have second-year pro Mike Glennon starting at quarterback, and he and Murphy connected well in the preseason. Murphy recorded a team-high six catches out of the 24 passes Glennon completed, including ve for 10 yards or more. Murphy said Glennon was preparing himself like a starter even in preseason camp, so he expects big things of him Sunday. (Glennon) looks the same that hes always looked, Murphy said. Since Ive been here, Mikes been a pro, here on time and early. We had a lot of good stuff in preseason. Murphy had perhaps the best game in his sixyear NFL career at Heinz Stadium as a rookie with the Raiders in 2009. Hecaught two touchdowns in the nal six minutes, with a 75-yard score, then the winning grab with nine seconds left, in a 27-24 upset of the Steelers. Its the only multi-touchdown game of his career, and one of his two 100-yard games. Been there: Guard Logan Mankins was on a New England team last year that beat the Steelers 55-31, scoring 28 points in the fourth quarter, but he knows yards will not be easy to come by Sunday. Theyre a physical team and you have to play up to it, Mankins said. They make it hard on you, but if you keep going and you do things right, usually youll be OK.Murphy hopes to reconnect with Glennon NFL: Tampa Bay notebookReceiver was among last cut in preseasonBy GREG AUMANTAMPA BAY TIMES NFL commissioner Roger Goodell met with NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith and other union executives for several hours Friday to discuss issues related to domestic violence and sexual assault. The NFL also has consulted with the U.S. Army to see how the military addresses issues of misconduct. In a letter to all NFL owners, a copy of which was obtained by Newsday, Goodell said he met with the NFLPA representatives to continue discussing issues of personal conduct, including training, education, family services, and the disciplinary process. Goodell said last Friday at his rst news conference since Ray Rice was suspended Sept. 8 after a video was released showing him punching his then-ance, Janay Palmer, in the elevator of an Atlantic City casino that he wanted to update the leagues personal conduct policy. Newsday Lions quarterback stopped by fallen bridge: Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford was among the first motorists to arrive at the scene Friday after the boom on a trash-hauling truck struck and pulled down a pedestrian overpass about 6 a.m. on the Southfield Freeway in Allen Park, Mich. The trucks driver later died. Jones attorneys argue assault claim: Attorneys for Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones argued that a lawsuit accusing him of sexual assault should be dismissed because an Oklahoma woman waited too long to file it. State District Judge Dale Tillery did not immediately rule on whether Texas statute of limitations laws prevent Jana Weckerlys lawsuit from proceeding. Weckerlys lawsuit accuses Jones of grabbing her genitals and kissing her without her consent in 2009. Judge recuses himself from lawsuit: U.S. District Judge David Doty, who had been the arbiter of NFL labor matters for more than two decades, recused himself from ruling on a dispute between NFL owners and the players union over an alleged secret salary cap. Doty was to have held proceedings Oct. 1 in the unions $4 billion lawsuit against the NFLs 32 teams for collusion. The NFL Players Association alleges the league enforced a secret $123 million salary cap per club in 2010 when there was supposed to be no cap. The NFL denied it, and Doty sided with the owners in 2012. Giants find their stride: A week ago, Tom Coughlins team was winless in its opening two games. Eli Manning was looking over the hill and uncomfortable in the new West Coast offense. The much-hyped defense had not recorded a turnover and there were visions of another 0-6 start and a third consecutive year out of the playoffs. Guess what? The Giants (2-2) have not only turned things around in the past five days with wins over Houston and Washington a 45-14 decision on Thursday night they are rolling. Manning is looking like a Super Bowl MVP again. Second-year tight end Larry Donnell has emerged as one of the biggest surprises in the league. The defense has had nine takeaways in the two wins as the defensive line has made life miserable for opposing quarterbacks. The turnaround has many jumping on the Giants bandwagon and Coughlin telling his players to relax.Goodell, union talk crime issues NFL NOTEBOOKFROM WIRE REPORTS ...............................................................................


The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 SP Page 7 championship since 2005. Charlotte was the runner-up with a 384, and Port Charlotte nished third after scoring a 544. As a team, we were very strong. And thats what pulled us through today, Lemon Bay coach Darrell Roach said. It was a team effort. It wasnt the Mantas best collective scoring day of the season, but they were balanced enough to fend off a Tarpons squad that Charlotte coach Josh Hoffart said posted its best 18-hole score of the season. Williamson and Rodriguez led Lemon Bay with 87s, and No. 1 Weese carded a 90 to make the Mantas the only team with three golfers to shoot below 100. They came through. Theyre very experienced, Roach said of his seniors. Theyre not tour nament, USGA players, but theyre experienced in high school golf and they know how to play. Charlotte senior Olivia Schulz earned medalist honors, birdieing the par-5 10th hole and the par-4 16th and 17th holes to shoot an 82. It was the best score of her career by ve strokes, Schulz said, and she did it despite shooting a 4-over par 8 on the 18th hole. Schulz was the top player to make the All-County team, which also includes teammates Laren Fender (90) and Faye Tsolovos (101), as well as Williamson, Rodriguez and Weese. The 8 messed me up really bad, and I regret that. But everybody has a bad hole, Schulz said. It was nice. I played really well. Roach doesnt know when his team will take home the trophy again. Five of his top six golfers this season Williamson, Rodriguez and Weese included are seniors, and their graduation this year will leave the Mantas with a young and inexperienced team. But the 20th-year coach isnt looking ahead to just yet. With districts, regionals and states coming up, his seniors still have plenty of golf left to play. Were enjoying it. Weve had (the trophy) for many years, Roach said. It feels good.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or BAY 366, CHARLOTTE 384, PORT CHARLOTTE 544Charlotte County Girls Golf Championship at Deep Creek GC (par 70) Lemon Bay: Montanna Williamson 87, Marisabel Rodriguez 87, Candice Weese 90, Brittany Sangiovanni 102, Maria Sheppard 108, Kayla Faircloth 122.

I wish we got to see it all play out, but these two teams we beat them, they beat us (earlier in the season), Charlotte coach Scott Harvey said. So this is a pretty fitting end. Last year I believe we finished last in it, so this is great, Port Charlotte coach Rodney Taylor said. It says a lot about the kids and what they did over the summer, and Im proud of each and every one of them. The bad weather didnt arrive until around 4 p.m., just after the final group reached the 10th hole. The teams attempted to wait it out and play the final seven holes, but continued lightning strikes in the area, as well as impending rain, eventually forced the golfers off the course for good. Port Charlottes Tate Smith and Community Christians Zach Couto tied for medalist honors with 1-over 42s. Coutos finish marked the third consecutive year a Mustang has earned top honors at the County Championship. Charlottes Jimmy Laurin (43), Alex Guzman (45) and Keegan Cooley (45), Port Charlottes Jacob Goldman (45) and Zach Specht (47) and Lemon Bays Ryan Conroy (46) and Jeovani Veloz (47) rounded out the All-County Team. Goldman provided the highlight of the match, hitting a hole-in-one on the 162-yard, par-3 8th hole. The wind was pretty strong coming back to us, so I clubbed up a little bit. I knew it might be a little bit long, but I just hit it as well as I could, Goldman said. I guess I got a little bit lucky. His reaction to me was, I went up to get the ball to give it to his mom to save it, and he said, Coach, that only put me at 2-over. I still have work to do, Taylor said. Thats how he is, though. I love it.

ENGLEWOOD The Lemon Bay High School girls cross country team should be at full strength for the rst time in three weeks at todays Lemon Bay Invitational. After winning the Holloway Park Jamboree in Lakeland on Sept. 6 thanks to top-10 nishes by Kelsi Ogilvie, Abby Weinfeld, Haley Blem and Nicole Mis, the Manta Rays have been down two of their top four runners the past two weeks. Ogilvie missed the Fort Myers Optimist Invitational and North Port Invitational with pain in her foot, the same foot that caused her to miss all of last season with a stress fracture. Its not as bad as last year, I just felt something in it and we wanted to be cautious, Ogilvie said. Shes spent time wear ing a boot, but has stayed active by working out on a bike, and coach Joe Casale said Wednesday that shes good to go. Blem missed the Fort Myers Optimist Invitational to take the ACT test, and Mis missed the North Port Invitational with an illness. Of the four, only Weinfeld has run at every meet, but the Manta Rays still came up with respectable team placements in Lehigh Acres (sixth out of 24 teams) and North Port (10th out of 25). A major part of the reason is the emergence of sophomore Kristen Robinson, who ran 21 minutes, 27.9 seconds 10.5 seconds faster than Blem in North Port. The ones who are showing some denite improvement are our young kids, Casale said. Our younger ones are starting to step up, so when we get (our full top four) back, were gonna be that much better. Hes hoping to see the similar improvement from his young boys team this weekend. The boys are getting better, they just have to focus, he said. Theyre not a focused group, theyre all juniors and (freshmen) and dont have that senior to say,hey, lets go. Junior Miles Rittenhouse came within a few seconds of his personal best when he ran a 17:35.1 in North Port. The entire boys team set season-bests at North Port, a notoriously fast course, and could top those times at the L.A. Ainger Middle School course, which Lemon Bays coaches expect to be similarly fast.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or PREP CROSS COUNTRY: Lemon Bay InvitationalRegaining their strengthBy ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITERFull speed ahead for host Mantas today LEMON BAY INVITATIONALWHEN: Today, 8 a.m. WHERE: L.A.

The weather system that hovered over Bradenton trumped all that. Charlottes nondistrict game against Lakewood Ranch was called at 8:25 p.m. due to a system of rain and lightning that showed no sign of relenting. The game will not be made up, since the Mustangs play on Thursday at North Port. Its unfortunate, Charlotte coach Binky Waldrop said. The kids worked hard. They deserved to play a football game tonight and it didnt happen. Two other games in Bradenton on Friday night were also hit with rain Palmettos game at Bayshore and Manatees contest at Southeast were postponed to today.

The Indians turned that news into a motivator for one of their most dominant defensive perfor mances of the season and delivered a 14-7 win over the Lions played on a muddy eld and in a steady rain for most for the night at Powell-Davis Stadium It was a shock; and knowing anything like that in life can happen, said junior defensive tackle Jarrod Hewitt, who led the defense with three sacks. We came out tonight and we were just doing it for coach Peacock. We had to get this win for Coach P. We werent going to let him down. Venice got things going right away after Malik Bryants 38-yard kickoff return gave the Indians the ball at the Mater 29. Venice converted a fourth down inside the 10-yard line and Langston Provitts 4-yard touchdown run capped a six-play scoring drive. Deteriorating conditions led to sloppy play and penalties from both teams in the rst half. Venices offense struggled on the muddy eld and went over two full quar ters before getting their third rst down. Offensively weve got to get our timing back, Venice defensive coor dinator Larry Shannon said. We had some weather this week and we werent able to practice on Wednesday. Our timing was a little off and when you cant get your footing its tough to move the sticks, and when you have penalties that set you back its a tough situation. At one point, Venice was tagged for three per sonal fouls that gave the Lions the ball in Indians territory. However, any time Mater got anything going Venices defense stepped up and stopped them dead in their tracks. Venices defense nished the rst half with three sacks a gure that would have been higher if penalties hadnt wiped out stops behind the line. The Indians nished with a dozen penalties for 119 yards. Just before halftime on fourth down Maters Drenard Turnbull took off down the left sideline and gained 30 yards to the Venice 9-yard line. Out of timeouts, the Lions tried a bubble screen in an attempt to get a score before the half, but Provitt stopped Zach Moss on the 4-yard yard line as the time ran out. If our offense goes down, our defense steps up, Hewitt said. Thats how we have to play every game. Provitt made another big defensive play late in the third quarter when he went high to pick off a pass from Temothas Herrington and returned it 36 yards to the Mater 32. On the rst two plays of the ensuing drive he had 27 yards on the ground, but an unsportsmanlike conduct call on the Indians set them back to the 14. This time, the Indians easily overcame the penalty. On the next snap Bryant took a handoff from Bryce Carpenter and darted toward the left side of the offensive line. He broke a couple of tackles and eventually found himself in the end zone for Venices nal score. The Lions scored a late touchdown on a 10yard run by Herrington.VENICE 14, MATER ACADEMY 7Mater Academy 0 0 0 7 7 Venice 7 0 7 0 14 First Quarter V Langston Provitt 4 run (Zach Carr kick) 8:50 Third Quarter V Malik Bryant 14 run (Carr kick) 2:25 Fourth Quarter M Temothas Herrington 10 run (Orlando Hayes kick)By SCOTT LOCKWOODSPORT WRITER UP NEXTVenice: at Dixie Hollins, Thursday, 7:30 p.m. Curry, brought up from the junior varsity squad, accounted for much of the Mantas rushing yardage. Mellor ran for 113 yards on 17 carries and two touchdowns. Anthony Marinola scored the Mantas second touchdown on a 38-yard run with 4:56 left in the rst quarter. Those rst two touchdowns pushed the Tigers into a pass-oriented game and the Manta Rays were able to intercept three passes to help thwart the visitors comeback. The third touchdown came in the third quarter on a six-yard run and gave Lemon Bay (3-2, 1-1) a 19-0 lead it never gave up. Curry, who came into the game after Marinola suffered an injury in the second half, rushed for 74 yards on 14 carries, most of it in the nal quarter when the game was still in doubt. Mellor, Curry and senior Josh Chapman each intercepted a pass and the Mantas recovered two fumbles to spark their defense. Turnovers are a big key to winning a game, Lemon Bay coach D.J. Ogilvie said.We were able to do that. Brayden an Victor did a great job. Victor was able to run the ball hard and not make any mistakes, and thats what a quarterback is supposed to do. The Tigers (0-4) scored their only touchdown on a 14-yard pass from Tariq Thomas to Kenny Benjamin with 10:00 left in the contest. Dunbar had a touchdown called back by a penalty later in the fourth quarter.LEMON BAY 19, DUNBAR 7Dunbar 0 0 0 7 7 Lemon Bay 12 0 7 0 19 First quarter LB Victor Mellor 64 run (kick failed), 10:47.

Port Charlotte (4-1) took little time to take control thanks to its defense. On Lehighs second possession, Chris Sankus stripped Robert Clay of the ball. Taylor Severson picked up the fumble and scampered 16 yards for a touchdown to give the Pirates a 7-0 lead. I cant take credit for that. I credit the whole defense. I just picked up the ball and ran it in, Severson said. We played to our full ability. It got dirty, but we kept our heads high and pulled through. Moments later, Port Charlotte went on a 50yard, six play drive, with Norus getting the last six for a score and a 14-0 Pirates lead. The points soon came fast and furious. Paulsin Heitter caught Christian Coffellettos only pass attempt for a score, Norus scored again following a Madison Eckhoff fumble recovery, Coffelletto snuck in following a Stephens long run and after another fumble recovery from Simeon Beckford, Norus burst up the middle and juked his way 43 yards to make it 42-0 at half, forcing a running clock for the remainder of the game. Luther scored in the third quarter to conclude the scoring as Kyle Wheeler and Grady Wells saw some action on offense in the second half, picking up quality yardage. Once again, the defense led the Pirates, which allowed only four rst downs and 92 yards of total offense. Defense is the focal point. They did a good job ying around the ball and our staff did a great job getting them ready, Ingman said. The game was marred by chippy play, numerous penalties and a near brawl in the second quarter in which several players were ejected. Ingman said his players tried their best to keep their heads. Its hard when people are taking shots at you and youre in the moment. Theres a lot of emotion and our kids did a nice job not retaliating, Ingman said. Weve been in situations like this and we knew we could persevere, Severson said. Now its on to Fort Myers and thatll be a great game. Lehigh (1-4) was led by Maurice Wedderburns 43 yards rushing, all of it in the fourth quarter.PORT CHARLOTTE 49, LEHIGH 0Lehigh 0 0 0 0 0 Port Charlotte 14 28 7 0 49 First quarter PC Taylor Severson 16 fumble recovery (Andres Hernandez kick) 6:52 PC Brennan Norus 6 run Hernandez kick) 2:37 Second quarter PC Paulsin Heitter 51 pass from Christian Coelletto (Hernandez kick) 9:06 PC Norus 8 run (Hernandez kick) 7:12 PC Coelletto 1 run (Hernandez kick) 3:40 PC Norus 43 run (Hernandez kick) 3:06 Third quarter PC Martin Luther 5 run (Devyn McCormick kick) 6:05PIRATESFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY JENNIFER BRUNOLemon Bay High Schools Harry Sheppard gains possession of a Dunbar fumble before going out of bounds during Friday nights game in Englewood. 50474677 N',) SURRCUNDIN'o AP=,'Siod ic<.nd =ee' Sbys Herewww.punogordach rbwcom

Page 2 The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 Farewell to Don Roll, a good friend, a great Rotarian and a great Elk. I met Don through Rotary many years ago. I had the privilege of serving with him on our reside chat committee. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, all new members would be invited to lunch at Dons house and we would educate them on Rotary. Dons wealth of knowledge would give our new members a great background of Rotary, and information about the programs and projects both locally and worldwide. He served as our song leader for many years. Don became a good friend. Through Rotary, our wives met and are good friends today. We have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries and holidays in each others company. We even went so far as to take vacations together. The rst trip that we went on was a Rotary trip to Switzerland. Later on, we were to take Cruises to the Mediterranean and Baltic seas. We have seen many sights and had many laughs. There was a whole range of adventures from Jeep rides in Cozumel Mexico and Dubrovnik, Croatia to riding the funicular on the Isle of Capri. We visited the Hermitage in St. Petersburg and the ice bar in Stockholm, Sweden. Oh so many memories were created. Don was also a great Elk. He was a founding member of the Punta Gorda Elks and he was their rst Exalted Ruler and held membership card No. 2. Don and Carlene have both been very active in the organization. Don has also been a community advocate and worked on many charitable projects in our County. He has been a bell ringer for the Salvation Army, worked at the air show and volunteered at the block party in Punta Gorda. The list is long and Charlotte County is a better place because Don lived here. We as Rotarians have lost a distinguished member, and a great friend. However, he will live on forever in our memories. Don, rest in peace. We will never forget.

Page 4 The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 A lung cancer screening method that is recommended for long-term smokers, whether they have quit or not, promises to detect cancer at its earliest and most curable stages. However, most insurance does not cover the cost, and participation has been limited. To raise awareness of the screening and its potential, West Penn Hospital is now offering low-dose computer tomography screening for free, supported by a grant from Highmark, a national health and wellness company. High-risk patients ages 55 to 74 are eligible for the program and must have a history of smoking a pack a day for 30 years or two packs a day for 15 years. They must either be current smokers or have quit within the past 15 years. This can be a life-saving oppor tunity, said Lana Schumacher, a thoracic surgical oncologist and co-director at the Esophageal and Thoracic Institute at Allegheny Health Network. Lung cancer is the third most common cancer in the U.S. and the leading cause of cancer death. Some patients are too worried to get a scan, worried well nd something, Schumacher said, adding that patients should know that even if cancer is found, if its in an early stage before symptoms appear, the survival rate goes up dramatically, to 85-90 percent over ve years. Once a person shows symptoms, its a ve-year survival rate of 15 percent. The benets were shown in 2011 by the National Lung Screening Trial. Participants who received the lowdose CT scans had a 20 percent lower risk of dying from lung cancer than participants who received standard chest X-rays. Annual scans are recommended by the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force. The West Penn screening is part of a pilot project for the Allegheny Health Network, which plans to implement it throughout the network. The CT test does not require any preparation or injections. Patients can make an appointment by calling a phone line. A lung cancer nurse navigator will contact them and lead them through the screening process and explain the implications of results. In the future we hope insurance companies will reimburse this, Schumacher said. The radiation exposure in the screening, she said, is a little bit more than an X-ray, a lot less than you get for a CAT scan. Theyre just looking for nodules in the lung, they dont need the higher dose. People get more exposure in radiation from the environment around them, she explained. The oncologist said the pilot study will follow up on its patients to demonstrate its value in preventative health care. Well track the par ticipants in a database, track them over time and see if we are making a difference.Screening may detect lung cancer at its earliest stagesBy JILL DALYPITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE Including me, there usually four or ve of us in the early morning training sessions. Our trainer David has been trying to vary our exercise routines over the last two weeks. Toward the end of last week, we started on a combination of cardio and strength training heavy on the cardio. We alternated 1-3 minute segments on the treadmill at varying inclines and speeds with exercises like kettlebell swings, dead lifts, abdominal exercises and squats. Part of one of the sessions included a tness evaluation on the treadmill how long did it take us to go a mile. About six weeks ago, I was doing a 20-minute mile (probably a little longer). A few seconds into the routine, I was feeling really good and I wanted to push myself. I got the usual warning from David to take it easy on my knee Id torn a ligament in March and some of the exercises still bother that knee. No running, Karin, David said. Im not sure if he was reading my mind, because I was just about to transition from a quick walk to a light jog. I grumbled and just kept walking. For me, the faster I walk, the more my calves tighten up. They were really starting to burn. What harm could it do to jog a few paces to loosen everything up? Besides, I had a lot of energy that I needed to expend. And I started to run. I glanced over at my classmate, Pat, who had upped the speed on her treadmill. Soon she was jogging. So I increased the speed on mine and continued to run until I heard the pop. Thirty seconds into the run, I felt a very painful pop in the knee Id sprained a few months ago. There was no running at that point I could barely stand. I tried the exer cise bike, but even slow pedaling was painful. So David put me in time out. He plunked a chair behind the treadmills and made me sit there. I told you not to run, he said, as I watched the rest of the class pounding away on the treadmills. Youd think Id be happy for the early end to the workout routine and a ready-made excuse to go home and camp on the couch. But I got mad. I knew I couldve improved my time on that mile. I wanted to keep going. I know Ive talked about the addictiveness of exercise before, but you really do get hooked on the endor phin rush that comes during and after a workout. Youre sending me home? I asked David. Im sending you home, he said. I protested. David at least let me nish the session with and upper body workout. I did see an orthopedic surgeon on Thursday for a follow-up. I can walk even lightly jog on the treadmill as long as the knee will tolerate it. Denitely no squats. (Thats one exercise I actually enjoy.) And no burpees. (I hate burpees.) Somewhere in all of the hard work, we always manage to nd ways to make the routine fun. Or at least ways to mess with our trainer. David, who always gets creative, entered the exercise room with what looked like a mini Wheel of Fortune. On it, in erasable marker, hed written different exercises. Some, wed heard of. Others, not. We greeted all of them with a raised eyebrow. At least I did. When he stepped out of the room, we found the exercises we didnt like and replaced them with things we knew wed really enjoy mainly naps and cheeseburgers. You have to give us credit for trying. David, claiming hed forgotten which exercises wed erased, lled in the blanks with even tougher ones. Burpees were now alternated with one-legged burpees. I was (hardly) disappointed that my knee prevented me from testing out that exercise. Last week, I touched on the impor tance of nutrition as part of a healthy lifestyle. Look for more on that subject in next weeks column.

The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 Page 5 Last week, I wrote about how lung cancer screening has the potential to achieve real progress toward the goal of reducing lung cancer mortality and increasing sur vivorship. While we are waiting for the CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) to make a decision about whether or not Medicare and Medicaid will cover screening, I am moving forward to raise awareness and to promote annual screen ing and early detection. At the Lung Cancer Alliances National Lung Cancer Survivor Summit, held Sept. 7 in Washington, D.C., I heard experts estimate that screening could achieve a doubling or tripling of the lung cancer survivor rate from the current 16 percent to as high as 50 percent. Being a part of the movement to achieve this is what keeps me motivated. The more survivors there are, the more voices there will be to join the movement to defeat lung cancer. We are trying to create an army of advocates, and could use more help. I started advocating for lung cancer after being diagnosed with stage 3A non-small cell lung cancer in 2007. I traveled to Washington D.C. in 2008 to meet with my congressional representatives about correcting the disparity in cancer research funding. I got a cold reception from the legislative assistants I met with, who said they did not believe in legislating body part research. All I wanted was equity in the allocation of available resources something I still want to see. I came away from that trip believing that the only way to make progress in getting federal funding for lung cancer would be by organizing a grass roots movement. In the last few years, lung cancer advocacy has started to make prog ress. The U.S. Department of Defense is currently funding a $110 million multi-year research project specifically aimed at lung cancer, which disproportionately affects veterans. That funding allocation comes in large part thanks to the tireless work of the Lung Cancer Alliance. We have also been able to get the Recalcitrant Cancer Research Act passed in 2012, requiring the NCI to develop a framework for addressing cancers that have a lower than 50 percent survival rate. In 2009, I organized one of the rst 5K races in Florida to raise lung cancer awareness. That year, we had only 300 race participants and we raised about $58,000 for research, mostly through donations and sponsorships. I have organized a race every year since then and, year after year, participation has slowly grown. Three years ago, South Florida Ford pledged to support our race with a $20,000 annual donation. I received the news today that they are again, for the fourth year, donating $20,000 to support our effort. I couldnt be more grateful. Next time you buy a car from a South Florida Ford dealer, be sure to say thank you for supporting lung cancer awareness and early detection. Since 2009 Charlotte County has generously raised nearly $400,000 to support lung cancer awareness and research funding. Earlier money went to a program to fund young lung cancer researchers grant requests. Our new mission, under the auspices of the Lung Cancer Research Council, is to raise funding for prevention, screening and early detection. We think screening and early detection will be the fastest path to saving and extending lives. Our goal this year is to have at least 1,000 people young and old come to Charlotte Sports Park the morning of Nov. 8 for a family friendly event. We are seeking participants of all ages who want to run in a timed 5K, run as an untimed participant, walk the 5K, or walk a shorter Mile of Memories course. Each year we commemorate family and friends we have lost to lung cancer with $25 memorial signs that line the course. For those who cant run or walk or otherwise cant be at the event, we encourage them to form virtual teams to raise funding online. Our hope is to have 40 or more teams participating. Businesses are invited to create a team or sponsor the event in any amount starting at $100.

Page 6 The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 A third of patients who undergo surgery to remove cancerous tumors end up with microscopic pieces left behind. These overlooked remnants can lead to the recurrence of cancer after what was thought to be a successful surgery. Two surgeons at the University of Pennsylvania have joined forces to try to solve this problem. Their solution: making tumors glow. Using a combination of injectable dyes and high-resolution cameras, the surgeons found a way to image tumors during surgery and more easily identify their margins. They published their ndings in July in the journal PLoS One. Once you get into surgery, youve only got your eyes and your hands to tell you where the margin of the cancer is, said David Holt, lead author of the study and professor of surgery at the Penn School of Veterinary Medicine. Tumors can be studied before surgery with MRIs or CT scans, but these images are helpful only to a certain extent, he said. After an initial study in mice, Holt used the new imaging technology on eight dogs with naturally occurring lung tumors. Holt and his team injected the dogs with indocyanine green, a dye that accumulates in tumors, more so than other tissues, due to their leaky blood vessels. The dye cant be seen directly because it emits light in wavelengths that arent perceivable by human eyes. But when the doctors shined a near-infrared light on the tumors during surgery, they glowed an Incredible Hulk green on computer screens hooked up to their cameras, Holt said. With the help of this real-time image, Holt could make decisions about where to make incisions during surgery on the dogs. Even in the precision-driven eld of surgery, a pictures worth a thousand words, Holt said. The successful dog study led to approval for a human clinical trial run by another surgeon, Sunil Singhal, a co-author on the study and assistant professor of surgery at Penns Perelman School of Medicine. Using the same technology, which he compared to night-vision goggles, Singhal examined lung and chest tumors in ve human patients. Just as in the dog study, the tumors strongly uoresced under the near-infrared cameras. Singhal also used this imaging approach in another study published last month in the Annals of Thoracic Surgery. In two out of 18 patients with lung cancer, the imaging system helped surgeons identify cancer in areas that had previously gone undetected. For those two people, it was life-altering, Singhal said. In cases like these, other imaging techniques or visual inspection of tissue might have given patients a stage 1 diagnosis when they actually have stage 4 cancer. Singhals goal is to use this technology to more accurately gauge the severity of cancers as well as reduce the recurrence rate after surgery. Singhals expertise led him to start exploring this technology in lung cancer, which kills more people in the United States than any other type of cancer. But he is already exploring its applications in other cancers, including breast cancer. He has seven open clinical trials using dyes to image tumors during surgery. This type of imaging doesnt involve radiation, making it safe to use for most patients, even pregnant women. But this limits how deeply into tissues surgeons can see. The dye Holt and Singhal used can be detected only at depths of 10 to 15 millimeters in tissues, leaving deeper areas unexplored. Also, the dye does not specically bind to tumor cells; thus, adjacent tissues can also collect dye, especially if they are inamed. As tumors get larger, they tend to iname surrounding tissues, Singhal said, leading to blurred margins on the images. Thats a major issue with indocyanine green, said Zhen Cheng, associate professor of radiology and director of the Cancer Molecular Imaging Chemistry Laboratory at Stanford University. Imaging with dyes that selectively target tumor cells is more important, he said. Singhal and Holt plan to use targeted dyes in future studies that are molecularly selective for tumor cells as well as continuing to improve their camera technology. Their work is not ready for mass use. But Singhal hopes it will ultimately lead to more sophisticated approaches, including three-dimensional holograms of tumors generated in real time during surgery.Dye offers hope for removal of all traces of tumorsBy RACHEL ZAMZOWTHE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER SURGERY PHOTOS BY TOM GRALISH/PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER/MCT Surgeon Sunil Singhal holds a lung tumor after removing it from a patient on August 12, 2014, at the University of Pennsylvania, where it will be inspected using a new dye.

The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 Page 7 Robert Dean has a piece of advice for men regarding prostate cancer get tested. Ive had a lot of conversations with men under 40 who have prostate cancer, said the 58-year-old Sarasota resident. The test is so easy as part of a normal blood test. I dont think you have to test as often when youre younger, but not to get tested at all? I think its a mistake. Im on the phone and on the web with guys every week. Its the guys that dont get tested that are beyond a cure. Early detection is the key. Dean knows whereof he speaks. In 2010, at age 54, he had a routine PSA test for insurance purposes and was shocked at the results. He had prostate cancer, even though he was healthy and had no symptoms. PSA screening remains vitally important, said Dr. John Sylvester, a board-certied radiation oncologist with 21st Century Oncology in Sarasota. The prostate cancer death rate dropped 45 percent in the United States, thanks to PSA screening. Even though some prostate cancers are slow-growing, its still is the No. 2 killer of men in the United States in terms of cancer, so we cant just sweep it under the rug. The prostate-specic antigen (PSA) test measures the blood level of PSA, a protein that is produced by the prostate gland, according to the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health. The higher a mans PSA level, the more likely it is that he has prostate cancer. However, there are additional reasons for having an elevated PSA level, and some men who have prostate cancer do not have elevated PSA. The PSA test has been widely used to screen men for prostate cancer. It is also used to monitor men who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer to see if their cancer has recurred (come back) after initial treatment or is responding to therapy. Upon discovering he had prostate cancer, Dean did not rush to get treatment. Some guys are like a deer in the headlights, he said. They do exactly what their urologist told them, and their urologist is typically a surgeon. Take control. They told me when I started doing my research on the web that its like drinking through a re hose. Theres a ridiculous amount of information. Its amazing how much you can learn in a short period of time. It took me four or ve months before I pulled the trigger on a treatment option. I studied four or ve hours a day. You cant reverse your treatment options whatever you choose to do, its forever done. He added that who you choose to treat you may be even more important than the treatment itself. He was told to make sure that whatever physician he chose had performed at least 1,000 procedures. You get procient after a couple of hundred, he explained, but the in cremental difference between 200 and 1,000 could be the difference between impotence, incontinence, recurrence. Make sure its the right practitioner. You dont want to be somebodys experiment. The procedure that Dean chose is only available in a select few locations, Sarasotas 21st Century Oncology being one of them. Thats because Sylvester is one of the pioneers of prostate brachyther apy, in which tiny radioactive seeds the size of a grain of rice are implanted into the prostate and emit radiation to kill the cancer cells. As a curious person, I really needed to know everything I could about the disease and treatment options to make an informed decision, Dean said. I travel all over the U.S. for a living and Im not afraid to use the phone. Between the phone and my travels, I researched and visited 20 different treatment centers, as well as talked at length with the physicians and their previous patients to learn everything I could. I found Dr. Sylvester published very high cure rates with minimal complications for prostate brachytherapy. I spoke with several of his patients and when I connected with Dr. Sylvester, I determined he was the most knowledgeable person on prostate cancer and he was by far the best communicator. The decision was clear to me. Dean underwent External Beam Radiation Therapy, followed by prostate brachytherapy, at 21st Century Oncology. The company offers a comprehensive range of cancer treatment services, focused on delivering academic quality, cost-effective patient care in personal and convenient settings. The company operates 180 treatment centers, including 145 centers located in 16 states. The company also operates 35 centers located in six countries in Latin America. The company holds market-leading positions in most of its domestic local markets and abroad. Prostate brachytherapy is only available in a handful of locations in the world, Sylvester said Canada, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle and Sarasota. Australia and Europe will soon be added to the list. Some guys give radiation therapy alone, some do radioactive seeds alone, some guys give beam plus the seeds, Sylvester said. The seeds have been around for a while, but the newest type of seed about 40 percent thinner than normal seeds, so the trauma of inserting the needle into the prostate for this minimally invasive procedure is even less invasive. The oncologist said that study after study demonstrates that those with an intermediate or higher risk type of prostate cancer respond best to higher doses of radiation. A few years ago, the beam wasnt very good, so we really didnt have a lot of options, Sylvester said. But now the beam has improved to the point that on some patients, beam only is quite good, actually. Now almost three years after treatment, Dean has no trace of cancer but he hesitates to call himself cancer free. I never consider myself cancer-free, he said. At this point in my journey, I have a 2 percent chance of recurrence. What he does do is give back by helping to educate other men dealing with prostate cancer. PSA testing saved my life, theres no question, he said. Now, the most important piece of advice I give for those diagnosed with prostate cancer is to slow down and do your homework. Talk to as many patients as you possibly can. Guys that have been through it will tell you the truth. I received so much help from so many guys, I wanted to help others. Every single man I spoke with gave great advice and its my obligation to pass it on.Prostate cancer survivor advises others with disease to slow downBy BOB MASSEYFEELING FIT CORRESPONDENT MENS HEALTH FILE PHOTO 56 UNIT MEMORY CARE COMMUNITY RECENTLY REMODELED AND NEW ADDITION30 UNITASSISTED LIVING THE PALMSOF PUNTAGORDAFOUNDERS CLUB SPECIALLIMITED TIME OFFER!rfnt rfbtfCALL TODAY frfnr f frf rft n frfnf rfnfrbf bft nfb fntf nrbnrfbtrrtttnr C n r 472352 2295 Shreve St, Punta Gorda, FL 33950 Assisted Living Facility #8469 Privately Owned, Locally Managed THE PALMS OF PUNTA GORDA 30 Assisted Living Apartments 56 UNIT MEMORY CARE COMMUNITY Bethany L.

Page 8 The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 There are times Kim Campanella thinks she has taken on too much by running another Trek Breast Cancer Awareness Ride. But then, there a lot of people in this community that have been affected by this disease and do this ride and they tell me their stories, said Campanella, co-owner of the Bicycle Center in Port Charlotte. And theyll bring me to tears. And Ill say, Yes, lets do it again this year. The 10and 25-mile rides will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 12 at the Bicycle Center, 3795 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte. An additional 50-mile ride will start at 8 a.m. Participants can register onsite at the Bicycle Center. The routes will be marked and bicycle support will be available. Though those are the ofcial ride distances, Campanella said riders of any skill can ride whatever distance they feel comfortable doing. Theres a woman in her 90s who comes every year, Campanella said. She rides a mile. Its a ride, not a race. An estimated one in eight women will have breast cancer in their lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society. The ACS estimates that about 2.9 million American women alive in 2012 had a history of breast cancer, whether it was in the past or under current treatment. The Centers for Disease Control report it is the most common cancer among women and 40,931 women and 443 men in the United States died from breast cancer between 199-2011. This is the seventh year the Bicycle Center will be one of the hundreds of Trek bicycle retailers that participates in the nationwide event to raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Campanella said the race has continued to grow every year since its start. Last year we had 175 riders, 10 volunteers who raised more than $5,000, she said. The rst year, we had 30 riders. Registration is $40, with all registration fees going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The rst 150 pre-registered riders will receive goodie bags. Campanella said the Wafe House is providing breakfast and Subway is providing lunch for all riders and there will be live entertainment. Along with a chance to get some fresh air and some exercise, there will be opportunities for pampering. Campanella said massages and mini manicures will be available. Campanella said there will also be a bra decorating contest, which is one of the more popular activities at the event. I thought it would be a fun thing to do, Campanella said of the idea. And people have a good time with it. Though the event will have a light, fun side, onsite mammograms will also be provided. The ACS recommends women 40 or older should have a mammogram every year.

Bikers could choose a 5-, 10or 25-mile route, with all proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This years ride takes place at 10 a.m. Oct. 12. It seems almost preposterous that a study like this one had to be conducted. But apparently the belief that wearing a bra for long periods of time can cause breast cancer persists, and it turns out the issue hadnt really been studied in scientic fashion. Until now, there has been just one academic look at this myth, back in 1991, and it was quite limited. But a new and rigorous examination of the issue concludes that no aspect of bra wearing, including bra cup size, recency, average number of hours per day worn, wearing a bra with an underwire, or age rst began regularly wearing a bra, was associated with risks of either invasive ductal carcinoma or invasive lobular carcinoma breast cancer. The study by researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle was conducted because we saw those rumors on the Internet and we had the data to examine this in a scientic way, said Lu Chen, a researcher at the facility and a doctoral student at the University of Washington School of Public Health, who led the team. It compared 454 post-menopausal women with invasive ductal carcinoma and 590 women with invasive lobular carcinoma diagnosed between 2000 and 2004 with 469 women who did not have cancer. The women, who were 55 to 74 years old, were asked about their bra-wearing habits as part of a much larger examination of breast cancer risk factors funded by the National Cancer Institute. The reasoning behind the cancer myth is that a bra, particularly one with underwire, somehow blocks the ow of lymph to an area beneath the armpit where bacteria and other waste products would normally be cleared from around the breast. Its not clear how it began, but many note a 1995 book, Dressed to Kill, which pointed out an association between lower breast cancer rates in societies where women dont wear bras and higher rates in cultures where they do. The book did not examine other possible explanations. This is a common confusion, Chen said. They see two things happening at the same time and they think one causes the other. The 1991 study found that women who go braless had fewer breast cancers than others, but the difference wasnt statistically signicant. And the researchers suggested that the weak correlation might be due to the braless women being leaner; obesity is a known risk factor for breast cancer. Chen suggested that the reason for the lack of research since then is probably because the idea of bras causing cancer seemed so implausible, so people didnt look at it. When she nally did, her research was able to establish that there is no connection. It was one of the myths going around on the Internet, she said. But this notion has no scientic basis.What scientists say about the myth that bras cause breast cancerBy LENNY BERNSTEINTHE WASHINGTON POST FILE PHOTO You cant catch them if you dont know where they are!

The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 Page 9 It used to be that Susan Beck had to go see her doctor to get a check on her heart failure symptoms. Now, Dr. Ray Benza can check on her condition everyday, without Beck leaving her Ingram, Pa., home. A sensor implanted in Becks pulmonary artery generates data about arterial pressure levels, a key indicator of whether her heart failure is worsening, and transmits the information for the doctors review. It takes less than ve minutes, said Beck, 58, a former lab worker who is one of 20 patients to be enrolled in a new, federally supported clinical trial at Allegheny Health Network focusing on the remote monitoring of right-sided heart failure caused by pulmonary arterial hypertension. Benza director of the networks advanced heart failure, transplantation, mechanical circulatory support and pulmonary hypertension program said the goal is to help patients better manage heart failure so their health doesnt deteriorate and they dont require costly hospital stays. Pulmonary arterial hypertension is a severe narrowing of the arteries that carry blood from the right side of the heart to the lung. This leads to right-sided heart failure and death. Heart failure is the inability to pump as much blood as the body needs and, depending on contributing factors, can be right-sided, left-sided or both. With remote monitoring, Benza said, he can make medication changes before patients know their condition, often characterized by uid buildup in the lungs and shortness of breath, is worsening. The lung is such a tremendous reservoir that it can hold a lot of uid before the patient becomes symptomatic, he said. The sensor system, known as CardioMEMS and made by St. Jude Medical of St. Paul, Minn., previously was evaluated in a study of 550 patients with various types of heart failure. That study involved researchers, including Benza, from 63 institutions. The study found that the device helped to reduce the risk of a heart failure-related hospitalization by as much as 37 percent. Janet Bungard, 64, of Harrison, Pa., participated in that study and still has the sensor, which continues to transmit a daily pressure reading for Benza to review. If its too high, hell call me and hell adjust my medication, said Bungard, 64, a retired nurse. Bungard, who has had heart failure for eight or nine years, said she believes the sensor, implanted about six years ago, has been effective. She said shes been hospitalized only a couple of times since getting the sensor, compared to more frequent hospitalizations in the years before that. The current, smaller trial involves only patients who have pulmonary hypertension and right-sided heart failure. Beck received the sensor Aug. 27 during a cardiac catheterization. Each morning, Beck lies on a special pillow. An antenna in the pillow enables the sensor to transmit arterial pressure data to Benza. If monitoring can prevent future hospital stays, thats great, Beck said. But she also hopes the sensor will minimize the future need for invasive and costly cardiac catheter izations, a procedure often used to assess people with heart failure. A year ago, Beck went to the hospital with fatigue and severe shortness of breath. But with medication, she said, shes noticed a world of difference.

Page 12 The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 Researchers at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and the University of Pittsburgh have developed a simple new test that can detect symptoms of a concussion current tests often miss. The new test concerns the vestibular ocular system, which is responsible for integrating vision, balance and movement. Its what allows us to keep our eyes focused and stable when we move our head around. Its located in the vestibulum of the inner ear. Vision issues, fogginess and dizziness are the symptoms associated with the worst outcomes in concussion patients, said Michael Micky Collins, director of the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program. But existing tests, which focus on balance, often miss these symptoms, said Anne Mucha, clinical coordinator for vestibular therapy. So a research team she headed which included University of Pittsburgh experts in other disciplines set out to develop a test that would pick them up. The test they designed called vestibular/ocular motor screening allows clinicians to be 90 percent accurate in identifying patients with a concussion, she and other researchers said in an article published online in the American Journal of Sports Medicine. The test can be added to current assessment methods such as physical examination, symptom evaluation and computerized neurocognitive testing. We were already good at detecting concussions, Mucha said. VOMS can tell us what type of a concussion a patient has suffered. There are six types, identied by the symptoms they exhibit: vestibular (balance issues); ocular (vision problems); mood and anxiety, migraine headaches, and cervical (problems with the neck). Most concussion sufferers exhibit several of these symptoms, but one or two tend to predominate, Mucha said. About 80 percent of people who suffer concussions recover in about three weeks. But it can take months for the remaining 20 percent to recover. Most of the patients treated by the Sports Medicine Concussion Program who have taken months to recover have had vestibular or ocular issues, Mucha said. To develop VOMS, researchers studied 64 concussed patients approximately ve days after they suffered their injuries, and compared their responses to a control group of 78 healthy patients. The VOMS test assesses ve areas of the vestibular ocular system: smooth pursuits (eyes following a moving object), saccades (rapid eye movement), horizontal vestibular ocular reex (that stabilizes images during head movement), visual motion sensitivity (related to dizziness), and near-point-of-convergence distance (where eyes can hold together without double vision). The test takes no more than ve to 10 minutes, and can be administered with just a tape measure and a metronome. After each test, such as asking the patient to focus on an object, or to move his or her head rapidly from side to side, the clinician administering the tests asks the patient if he or she is exhibiting any of the key symptoms, so feedback is immediate. After taking the VOMS test, more than 60 percent of patients exhibited symptoms of concussion, said Anthony Kontos, assistant research director for the Sports Medicine Concussion Program and a member of the research team. If it werent for VOMS, their impairments might have been missed, he said. The addition of VOMS to the diagnostic tool kit of other tests, such as those pioneered by the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program that measure neurocognitive deciencies, could very well foster a paradigm shift in the diagnosis and treatment of concussions, Collins said. Although Collins and Mucha would not get more specic, it was plain both were excited by the possibilities VOMS offers. If those with vestibular and ocular concussions can be identied immediately, the time it takes to treat their concussions could be cut very, very substantially, Mucha said. Collins agreed: Were nally starting to hit this problem in just the right way.New test detects concussion impairments easily overlookedBy JACK KELLYPITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE CONCUSSIONS PHOTO BY LARRY ROBERTS/PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE/MCT Brittany Brown, a rehab aide at UPMC Sports Medicine who was in a recent bicycle accident, is examined by Anne Mucha, right, program coordi nator of the Vestibular Concussion Program in Pittsburgh, Pa., on September 15, 2014. 629-4804 50472196 2 7 6 2 B T a m i a m i T r P o r t C h a r l o t t e 2762 B.

The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 Page 13 In recognition of World Rabies Day on Sept. 28, Sarasota County is emphasizing the importance of pet vaccinations to prevent rabies transmission. Rabies prevention can be exercised through ensuring adequate vaccination of pets and farm animals, avoiding contact with wild animals and educating individuals at risk. The animal species carrying rabies most frequently in Florida are raccoons, bats, foxes and unvaccinated outside cats. Vaccination is the most crucial tool in ghting the spread of rabies among our animal population, said Tom Higginbotham, Florida Department of Health in Sarasota Countys environmental health director. Rabies can be prevented but not cured. Florida law requires that pet cats, dogs and ferrets be vaccinated against rabies as the primary way to safeguard our community from this deadly disease. According to Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce Animal Services, there were 605 dog bites and 197 cat bites during the past 12 months in Sarasota County. This compares to 561 bites from dogs and 170 cat bites during the previous year. Health ofcials caution that the actual number of bites may be much higher since not everyone who is bitten reports the bite to Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce Animal Services. Bites commonly occur when people feed or adopt raccoons as pets; handle bats, stray dogs and feral cats; attempt to break up ghts between pets and other animals; rescue and assist injured animals; and walk pets late at night. During the past 12 months, 62 people were potentially exposed to rabies and received rabies post-exposure prophylaxis through the Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County. This compares with 57 people from 2012-13. Rabies is caused by a virus that humans and other mammals can contract when saliva from an infected animal comes in contact with mucosal membranes or a fresh wound of a person or another animal. The virus is primarily transmitted to another animal or a person by bites but can also occur through a scratch. Other types of contact, such as contact with blood, urine or animal hide do not constitute rabies exposures. Rabies is always fatal without proper post-exposure treatment. The following are steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones against rabies: Keep rabies vaccinations up to date for all pets. Keep your pets under direct supervision so they do not come in contact with wild animals. If your pet is bitten by a wild animal, seek veterinary assistance for the animal immediately and contact Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce Animal Services at 941-861-9500. Call Animal Services to remove any stray animals from your neighborhood. Spay or neuter your pets to help reduce the number of unwanted pets that may not be properly cared for or regularly vaccinated. Do not handle, feed, or unintentionally attract wild animals with open garbage cans or litter. Never adopt wild animals or bring them into your home. Teach children never to handle unfamiliar animals, wild or domestic, even if they appear friendly. Prevent bats from entering living quarters or occupied spaces in homes, churches, schools, and other similar areas, where they might come in contact with people and pets. Unusual acting animals should be reported to Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce Animal Services at 941-861-9500 for handling. If a domestic or wild animal bites or scratches you, seek care promptly. Wash the wound thoroughly with soap and running water for 5-10 minutes. Immediately visit your primary doctor, hospital or county health department for medical attention. The contact number to report an animal bite to the Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County (Health Department) is 941-861-6133.

County health officials encourage pet vaccinationsProvided by the FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH IN SARASOTA COUNTY COMMUNITY HEALTH FILE PHOTO Finding a nursing home for a loved one can be a difcult process emotionally both emotionally and nancially. But once youve narrowed down your list of homes, its time to plan a visit. Visiting is key to understanding if a home is right for you. As with other senior housing options, its the people that make the place, both the residents and staff. In a nursing home, youll also need to make sure that the medical care is delivered appropriately and promptly. What to look for in a nursing home staff: How frequently does the staff turn over? What is the stafng level on weekdays, weekends, and evenings? Do they have time to speak with you, or does it feel rushed? How would they manage your health condition? How are medications and procedures arranged? And how do they handle emergencies or accidents such as falls? Do they appear genuinely inter ested in you, and do you see them interacting warmly with current residents? What to look for in current residents and their families: Do the residents appear happy, engaged? Or excessively groggy and overmedicated? Do they seem clean and well groomed? Do they seem like people youd enjoy getting to know? How do they respond to you? Try to observe social gatherings such as meals or other activities. If needed, are residents getting timely help to eat, and with getting to and from the gathering areas? If you see a family visiting, you can ask them about their impressions of the home and how their loved one has been treated. Ask if there is a family council and if you could attend. What to look for in the nursing home facility: Cleanliness: Does the facility appear clean? Do you smell urine or strong deodorizers that may be covering up the smell of urine? Food: What kinds of meals are normally served? Does it look nutritious and appetizing? How are special diets handled? What kind of help is available with meals, and do they have to be eaten at the same time or in a common area? Arrangement: Traditionally, nursing homes have been run like a medical facility, including a centralized nursing station with set medication and mealtimes. Some nursing homes, however, are now moving to a different model, with smaller communities and communal areas. If this type is available in your area, it may provide a more homely feel. Activities: What quality of life activities are available for residents? Are outside activities also arranged, health permitting? Experience with your condition: If a loved one has Alzheimers, for example, is there a special care unit or specialized staff and activities? How does staff handle behavioral problems like agitation or wandering? Understanding nursing home/ skilled nursing facility costs: In the U.S. nursing home costs are a big part of nursing home care and can vary widely depending on the What to look for when selecting a nursing homeBy JENNIFER WILLIAMSNEURO CHALLENGE FOUNDATION FILE PHOTOHOME | 14 50472339 NEUROLOGY ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAPHY ELECTROMYOGRAPHY Harbor Professional Centre 3420 TAMIAMI TRAIL SUITE 3 PORT CHARLOTTE, FLORIDA 941-629-2111 Please visit us at www N A S I R K H A L I D I M D NASIR KHALIDI, M.D. Dizziness/Involuntary Movements Sudden Vision Change/Multiple Sclerosis Parkinsons Disease/Muscular Dystrophy Restless Leg Syndrome Most Insurances Accepted


Page 14 The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 state you live in. Average costs are around $70,000 per year, so you need to know how youre going to pay for nursing home care. Its important to understand the limitations of insurance in covering costs: Medicare only covers limited stays in nursing homes. Skilled nursing or rehabilitation services are covered for a period of about 100 days after a hospitalization. Medicare does not cover custodial care (such as assistance with feeding, bathing, and dressing), if that is the only care needed. If your income and assets are limited, you may qualify for Medicaid, which does cover most of the costs of nursing home care. However, not all nursing homes accept Medicaid. If you suspect that you may need extended nursing home care in the future, you may want to contact an elder law attorney to learn more about which assets are protected, and to what extent. For example, if you have a spouse living at home, your home is normally not consid ered in eligibility for Medicaid for nursing home purposes, and some of your savings may be partially protected as well. If you have long-term care insur ance, check the provisions of your plan to see what portion of nursing home coverage is protected. Handling the emotions of moving to a nursing home: Moving is a stressful transition, even at the best of times, and moving to a nursing home brings on a whole host of different emotions. If you are the one moving, you are leaving behind a familiar place and memories. If the nursing home move was due to a hospitalization, the transition may have been abrupt and you may not have had time to even process what has happened. Add to that the increased medical needs and decreased mobility, and its no wonder moving to a nursing home can be so stressful. You may even feel angry and abandoned by family members, even if you realize they cant provide the level of care you need. Anger and grief are perfectly normal emotions. If a loved one is moving, you may feel guilty for being unable to provide care, or sad that your loved one has to go through this transition. You may feel relief that your loved one is getting the care they need, tempered with guilt if caregiving has been particularly intense. Family members may have been arguing about whether a nursing home is necessary, where it should be located, and who should be the point of contact.

The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 Page 15 Spend enough time at the gym and youre bound to develop some pet peeves. Its a communal space, shared by people with idiosyncrasies that can drive others up a wall humming while running, staring while lifting or loud-talking while doing anything. Teaching tness classes at a gym has given me a front-row seat to some colorful behavior that local trainers and gym managers tell me is pretty common. While there is no way to avoid annoying somebody at some point, there are basic rules of gym etiquette to keep people from throwing you the side-eye. Focus on your workout, not everyone elses: Look, I get it. You read tness mags, have a few exercise apps on your smartphone and are at the gym so much that all the cleaning people know your name. But unless youre a certied trainer, no one needs your advice on their form. This kind of gym-splaining happens way too often to women. Some dude will think its his duty to explain the ne points of a squat or, worse yet, try to physically correct your posture. Its intimidating enough to exercise in front of a bunch of chiseled people without a stranger singling you out for a lesson. If you are genuinely concerned that someone might injure himself, tap a trainer on the shoulder and politely say, Hey, I think that person over there could use some help. Most trainers are happy to help, especially if it means a potential new client. If someone is in immediate danger, help them out. But otherwise, look for a trainer on the oor, said Devin Maier, a personal trainer at Balance Gym in Washington. Focusing on your workout also means not staring at people as they are doing theirs. You can learn a lot from checking out someone elses routine, but dont ogle. And if you really want to try the circuit that the guy next to you is doing, ask him about it when it looks like hes done. Keep it clean: If youre a sweat monster, like I am, bring wipes to clean off the machines, mats and weights. Most gyms come equipped with spray bottles and paper towels; some even have disinfecting wipes. Use them. Slipping and busting your behind on someones treadmill sweat trail is no fun. Janitors can be in only so many places at once. They need your cooperation to keep the gym from becoming a petri dish. If you like to shave or wash your hair in the locker room shower, take a paper towel and scoop up the bits of hair in the drain. Sure, its icky, but its ickier when somebody else has to step in it. And if you need to freshen your makeup at the sink, clean up the lm of foundation or blush powder around the edges. Keep grunts to a minimum: Yes, that last set of curls is killing you. So much so that youre gritting your teeth, breaking into a sweat and grunting like youre Conan the Barbarian but youre not, so keep it down. It is natural to grunt when exerting effort; some trainers will even tell you that it enhances performance. One study of college tennis players found that their serve and forehand velocity increased when they grunted. Still, that loud exhalation can be distracting to everyone else. Besides, you can forcefully expel air without making a whole lot of noise. Try it. If it sounds like someone is passing a kidney stone and its distracting to other people, then you need to tone it down, Maier said. Were all for people exerting themselves within reason, but we dont want someone to bust a blood vessel. And another thing: There is no need to drop the weights after completing that oh-so-difcult set. Its distracting and dangerous, Alexx Grifn, regional group tness director at Vida, said in an e-mail. Please do not drop weights from overhead or let them drop from waist level to the ground, he wrote. Instead, maintain control of weights at all times, and safely lower them to a resting position. Dont hog several machines or weights at once: Rotating from one machine to the next as part of a circuit can be a great way to break up the monotony of your workout. But be mindful that other people want to use the leg press or Smith machine. Dont take long breaks in between each set, because someone will swoop in to take one of the machines. And swoopers, ask whether the person is still using the leg press before you start your set. The frustration of having to wait and wait for a machine is no excuse for rudeness. Im all for people doing circuit training, but if you are going to monopolize multiple pieces of equipment, you should probably come in during off-peak hours, Maier said. If youre going to the gym at 6 p.m. at night, dont do it. Youre going to upset people, and everyone has got to share. All the same advice applies to the use of weights. Its splendid that you are trying to increase the amount of weight you can lift. You know whats not splendid? People waiting 20 minutes for the pair of 10-, 15and 20-pound dumbbells that you say youre almost done using. Not all gyms come fully stocked with multiple weights of the same size, so keep that in mind when you pick up the last pair of 15-pound dumbbells. And return all equipment to its proper location after use so that its readily available for other members and keeps the gym oor free of clutter, Grifn said. Conne your stuff to one area: There is no reason for anyone to have their belongings water bottle, sweatshirt, keys, phone, wallet strewn about. This goes for the locker room, weight room and class studio. None of these places are your house, so you have no right to throw your stuff everywhere. Not cool. There is limited space in the gym that has to be shared by everyone, so it does no one any good to have maneuver around all of your things. Get a locker. If you dont feel safe parting from your wallet or cellphone, then neatly place them somewhere thats not in the way. When youre in the locker room, dont leave your toiletries in the shower stall. Same goes for your sweaty clothes and worn undies. No one needs to see all that. No one. Ever.When you work out at the gym, exercise decorumBy DANIELLE DOUGLASTHE WASHINGTON POST FITNESS & NUTRITION FILE PHOTO 50471505 Our Talented Team of Orthopedic Surgeons is Growing! Steven R.

The Sun /Saturday, September 27, 2014 Page 19 Several years ago, a California study showed that a half-dozen elective surgeries were being per formed far more often in Humboldt County than they were in the rest of the state. The procedures included hip and knee replacements, hysterectomies and carotid endarterectomies, a surgery to remove plaque buildup in the carotid arteries. Geographical variation in the delivery of health care can harm patients and increase costs. That is especially true when it comes to surgery, which is usually more expensive and riskier than less invasive treatments. Medicaid makes up a huge portion of state budgets, so the issue of health care variation is a pressing one for states looking to hold down costs. In Humboldt County, doctors, hospitals, and others involved in health care wondered why surgeons in their area operated so often, and if they could do anything to get closer to the state norms. To nd out, they launched the Humboldt County Surgical Rate Project, which brought together doctors, health care advocates, community organizations, unions, colleges and small employers. We werent trying to identify anyone as a bad guy, said Betsy Stapleton, a retired nurse practitioner who is the co-director of the Humboldt County Surgical Rate Project. The idea was to identify what was actually happening out there and to gure out ways to address it. It led to really fascinating conversations. As it turned out, a large part of what was actually happening out there was surprisingly simple: Patients in Humboldt County werent playing a big enough part in their own health care decisions. The interest in Humboldt was spurred by a 2011 report by the California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF) that showed surgical rates for 13 different procedures in all parts of the state. (Since then, CHCF has expanded its study to additional procedures.) The report showed remarkable variation in surgery rates that could not be explained by differ ences in age, gender, race, ethnicity, insurance status or even local disease prevalence. For example, even controlling for those factors, the report shows that men living in Tracy, just north of San Francisco, are 479 percent more likely to undergo brachytherapy (internal radiation) for prostate cancer than the statewide average rate. Similarly, women in the northern California city of Healdsburg received lumpectomies without radiation for breast cancer at 248 percent of the state average rate. CHCF found great variations even between nearby cities. In Clear Lake, northwest of Sacramento, for instance, the rate of coronary artery by pass grafts, which improve blood ow to the heart, was 236 percent higher than the state average while not far away in Deer Park the rate stood at 84 percent of the state average. For more than 20 years, The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice, which monitors current medical practice in the U.S., has produced similar reports nationwide on particular surgical procedures. The Dartmouth institute uses Medicare data to show variations in how medical resources are distributed, including among racial and ethnic groups. (The CHCF study used all-payer data, which is available in California, meaning that its study included people above and below age 65.) Most disturbing to Dartmouth researchers from the beginning was that the differing surgical rates did not reect variations in prevalence of the associated diseases. For example, in its latest report published last week, Dartmouth showed vastly different rates in bariatric surgeries procedures that limit the amount of food the stomach can absorb across the country with no correlation to the prevalence of either obesity or Type 2 diabetes, the two conditions that most often lead to those surgeries. Among states, North Dakota had the highest rate with 62.7 bariatric surgeries per 100,000 Medicare beneciaries. Vermont had the lowest rate with 12.6 per 100,000. It is troubling because, in simple terms, you would expect the places (with) the highest obesity rates to have the most operations, Philip Goodney of the Dartmouth Institute and one of the studys authors wrote in an email. But that wasnt the case, so other things are driving the variation. We hope to learn more about these things. If anything, the high surgery variation rate proves that medicine is less science than art if even that. In the case of surgery, different surgeons have different beliefs about the threshold when surgery is warranted, said Shannon Brownlee, a senior vice president with the Lown Institute, a think tank concerned with overtreatment in medicine. When you see variation in the rate of heart surgeries that doesnt track the variation in heart disease, Brownlee said, you know that it isnt driven by the medical needs of the population but by something else, and that something else is often the preferences of doctors. Those preferences often reect nothing more than the differences in the experiences of individual doctors. Where did they get their medical training? Who are their friends within their specialties? What is their proximity to high tech testing apparatus? How open are they to persuasion from pharmaceutical companies? How much are they motivated by nancial gain? Doctors in one area may do things differently from doctors in other areas, said Laurence Baker, a Stanford University health economist who provided the data analysis for the CHCF report. They train at different places, they eat lunch with a certain group of people, they talk to each other, all of that can affect how they go about their practice. All of those factors can inuence a surgeons sense of when surgery is indicated. Laymen who believe that doctors all read from the same play book may be shocked by the reality. Many doctors who are outliers in their practice behaviors probably dont even realize they are outliers, said Maribeth Shannon, director of CHCFs Market and Policy Monitor Program. Some efforts have been undertaken to create more standardized practices. The American Board of Internal Medicine launched an initiative asking all the medical specialties to list procedures and tests frequently performed whose necessity should be questioned by practitioners. The Affordable Care Act also established the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute to set benchmarks of effective, evidence-based medical practices. Its projected budget is about $3.6 billion over 10 years.A new look at why surgical rates varyBy MICHAEL OLLOVESTATELINE.ORG HEALTHCARE COSTS FILE PHOTO Events, restaurants, artists & more!
