Ngoc-Ha and John Dickinson have lived the drama of a Holly wood movie. The story outline: Boy goes off to war. Boy meets girl. They fall in love. He must leave; she must stay. Tick-tock, she bears his son. Despite all attempts to maintain contact, their letters dont get through. Hope fades. Back home, he is heart-weary with loss. Over there, she is too. She also faces the horror of a continuing war and its terrible aftermath. He eventually marries and begins a career. She also marries, but eventually ees her home country in a ship. Surviving a harrowing sea journey including pirates she settles in a new land and her family grows. But the undertow of true love lost persists in both. Then, years later, a chance encounter leads to a random phone call, then another and like a miracle played out over two continents, thousands of miles and among millions of people a reunion. Woman nds man. Son meets father. Man visits woman. The magnetic force proves too great to keep them apart for long after that. Man eventually marries woman and her family moves to his country. They later resettle in Gulf Cove in Charlotte County. He retires after a career with the parks department and she works the checkout line at Publix. Fade out. Not a dry eye in the house. The story is told by Ngoc-Ha Dickinson in her book, My Love Far Away A True Story of War and Survival, written originally in Vietnamese and published this year in English. It is an extraordinary saga. Last week, when I met John and Ha at their home in Gulf Cove, I told John I had read the 200-page paperback in one sitting. Thats common, he said. A page-turner of a life. A graduate of the Naval Academy, John was an aviator ying missions in Vietnam in 1969 when he met Ha, an 18-year-old beauty working at an ofcers club. It was an encounter, she writes in the rst chapter, Ill never forget. The rest is described in detail. The child. The war. Escape. The misery of loss. The Asian refugee familys new life in Germany. And then an encounter with a traveler from Chicago who hears Has story and agrees to search out the ex-pilot in Minneapolis. It takes him three years to get around to it, but eventually he does and, in the third call, nds the right John Dickinson of Minnesota. After two decades, John nally got to meet his son in 1990 and then reunite with Ha. They wed in 1993. As she writes, I had at long last married my rst and true love. John had brought back to me everything I had lost before. Which was considerable, John tells me: Ha lost everything except her life. And as John writes, We will never part again. To nd out how this all happened, read the book. Its available at Coppersh Books in Punta Gorda or through the website mylovefaraway. Suitable for Hollywood. And from what I could tell, theyre living happily ever after. Stephen Baumann is a member of the Suns editorial board.

A possible solution, however, would require permission to use the land of Florida Power & Light Company for a new roadway. A study conducted by Florida Transportation Engineering Inc. offers a number of alternatives to improve the intersection bottleneck, which primarily affects motorists turning left from Sandhill onto Kings. At a recent county workshop, commissioners heard several options Slow going in Deep CreekBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERBUSY | 4 SUN PHOTO BY ADAM KREGERMarty Blaustein, 65, of Punta Gorda, and his wife, Betzy, 53, (not pictured) were awakened in the middle of the night recently because the carbon monoxide detectors in their house were going o a car in the garage had been running, and the house was lled with the toxic gas. Fireghters said the detector saved the couples lives.Marty Blaustein loved his new car. That is, until it almost killed him and his wife, Betzy, in their sleep. Their lifesaver: two small devices in the couples home that they didnt even really know about. The Blausteins near-death experience came in the early hours on a recent morning in a quiet Punta Gorda neighborhood. We woke up because we heard like an alarm going off, said Marty, 65. It was the carbon monoxide detectors I never thought much of them, I assumed they were just smoke detectors. Marty grabbed a stool and reached the devices attached to the ceiling to shut them off. It was 2:30 a.m. I was going to go back to bed, but Betzy talked me into trying to nd out what was going on, Marty said. Were both retired (from the New York City Police Department), and she was a detective. Marty, with Betzy at his side, went to check in the garage. When I opened the door, I was hit like this, Marty recently recalled, as he threw his hands up and jerked back. I was almost overcome by (the fumes). I looked through this haze that was in the garage and I could see headlights. My car was on. About nine hours earlier, Marty had plugged in his 2013 Chevrolet Volt, so the hybrid electric car could charge. But now the engine was on, too. Marty said the car was red hot to the touch, inside and out. He and Betzy managed to roll the car out into the driveway and called the county re department. According to a Charlotte County Fire/EMS report prepared by Lt. Matt McElroy, the carbon monoxide levels inside the home were at least ve times the normal amount about a half an hour after the garage had been opened Carbon monoxide alarms save couples livesBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERALARMS | 4 HOMELESS | 4 SteveBAUMANNCOLUMNISTLIFE STORIES SUN PHOTO BY GARY ROBERTSDuring peak hours, it takes plenty of patience to make a left turn from Sandhill Boulevard onto Kings Highway in Deep Creek. Charlotte County is considering several options to improve trac ow, including a realignment of Sandhill. Rude awakeningCounty looks to fix busy intersectionPat Knox spent part of Monday tallying up the 30 or more families who, since January, have given up on Englewood and left. Some have stopped by and said they lost their jobs and dont have the money to pay their rents, said Knox, who serves as St. Davids Episcopal Church outreach manager and oversees the churchs food pantry. She doesnt know where theyre going, but as families leave, the homeless population grows. According to Knox, Englewood is seeing an increase in its homeless adult population, which she suspects are homeless adults heading south from the city of Sarasota. According to a 2013 study of homelessness in Sarasota County, the county has more than 1,400 homeless adults with 86 per cent living in North County. South County sees more homeless families. The study documented more than 900 homeless students in the countys school system and pointed out those numbers did not include children under 5 years old. The Charlotte County Homeless Coalition found more than 500 homeless in a January count in Charlotte County. About 30 percent of them were under 18. Many working families patch together part-time jobs to survive and yet have found themselves laid off from those jobs, particularly during the summer months, Knox said. Throughout the summer, St. Davids, Helping Hand and other food pantries reported they were having difculties keeping up with the need and were seeing more households in need than in previous years. The Charlotte County Homeless Coalition reports that it serves an average of 120 hot dinners each night, and its food pantry each month provides a three-day supply of food for 500 families and individuals. The Charlotte coalition is in the planning stages of a community meeting it wants to hold in October in its efforts to end homelessness in Charlotte County. Before then, theres the Greener Cleaners 3rd Annual Bowling Tournament to support the coalition on Sunday afternoon at Bowland Port Charlotte.

The Sun /Tuesday, September 30, 2014 C Our Town Page 3 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT Under cloudy skies, a handful of visitors swam in the healing waters of Warm Mineral Springs Day Spa Monday, three days after the attraction was reopened to the public following the citys closing on the purchase of the entire 81-acre property Friday. They (patrons) are so happy that we are back open again. Im happy and Im glad that its reopened, said Springs general manager Mary Putnik. Everybody has been so happy that they can come back in. We all missed it when it was closed. Putnik, who has reached her 20th year as a Springs employee, has been through both temporary closings of the Springs, the latest on Aug. 31, for a month. Putnik is hoping to stay in her position with the Springs until she decides to retire. Saturday it was so wet because of all the rain Friday and then we couldnt open because of the alligator, Putnik said. Patrons were kept outside at Saturday mornings planned reopening due to the 4-footer lurking around the waters of the 87-degree, mineral-rich natural spring. The alligator trappers (from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission) got him out the same day, Putnik said. The gator was trapped late Saturday afternoon. The visitors who swam and waded in the water Monday afternoon spent close to an hour in the Springs. Most were local residents, though a few visitors hung out on the property for the rst time. Shannon Nash, a Bradenton resident, heard about the Springs from a religious man a while ago and nally decided to pay the spiritual place a visit. I met a Shaman who told me about this and told me I should come here. I came here to see what its all about, Nash said. Nash wasnt completely knowledgeable about the propertys history pertaining to Sarasota County recently selling its half of the Springs to the city of North Port for $2.75 million, but knew it had just reopened Saturday. The county and city had purchased the property jointly in 2010 for $5.5 million, but couldnt reach consensus on who should operate it, which led to two shutterings in just over a year. I dont know all the details, but if theyre (commissioners) not representing the community as a whole, the community needs to elect ofcials who are advocates for the citizens. These people dont seem to be looking out for the society just themselves. Thats not fair. This place is all of ours, its to be shared, Nash said. Following a nice, long soak, North Port residents Joe Kreisel, accompanied by his wife Eugenia, spoke to the Sun about the future of the Springs and how he felt about the citys steps to acquire the beloved property. The Kreisels, who had previously visited the Springs on a daily basis, said they were thrilled that the attraction was back open and that the city had cut ties with the county on the property. The partnership was completely sterile. If you want to buy yourself an enemy, just go 50/50 in on something, Joe said. I think they did well, and now that North Port has it to itself, they can move forward. All that happened with the purchase that needs to be left in the past. The commissioners did very well, except for (Mayor Jim) Blucher. Blucher wasnt interested in the people of North Port. Hes not interested in the people who moved here and invested here. People dont move here for the Lowes, the Walmart or the lively North Port nightlife. They move here for (the Springs), right there. Joe called Bluchers dissenting votes on the Springs purchase a disservice to the people of North Port. He added that the Springs is the only thing his wife gets really happy and enthusiastic about following the death of her son, and the attraction is special to the couple. They seem to be moving in the right direction now. I give my hearty applause to them (commissioners). Now that they are unrestricted from the county, maybe they can get things done around here. We really hope so, Joe said. When Blucher voted against the transaction last week, he said, North Port should not be investing this much money without some private help. The Springs is currently open to the public for swimming only. No spa services, classes or any other former activities are being offered at this time by short-term oper ator National and State Park Concessions, which is under contract to run the Springs for a year at a cost of $579,360. Im happy with the company. They are a great company and they do a good job, Putnik said.

The Springs attracts visitors from all over the world, like this newlywed couple celebrating their honeymoon, who heard about the Springs from Florida residents. NORTH PORT Monday was National Coffee Day, and the new Starbucks in North Port opened just in time for residents to celebrate. The drive-thru Starbucks opened Sunday at 5 a.m. in Cocoplum Village Shops. Store manager Katie Rolfe said the shop made more than $3,800 its rst day. She said opening day was consistently busy, and Monday morning there were still more than 10 customers at the store in the late morning hours. A Ukrainian womens group decided to meet at the new coffee shop Monday morning, and they said everything seemed perfect. Were enjoying pumpkin spice lattes, even though it doesnt get very cold in Florida, said Galima Kovtunovich, one woman in the group. Another woman, Lisa Kroks, said her daughter always goes to the Starbucks in Venice, but she wanted to try out the new location. Usually I drink tea, but I had to try the coffee here to see what it was all about, Kroks said. Everyone in the womens group said they were very excited about the new drive-thru and how much more convenient it would make getting their morning coffee. Merle and Sharon Wilhelem, longtime North Port residents, said they drove down from Sarasota Monday to try the new Starbucks. The couple owns a home manufactur ing business in North Port, and they have expanded it to Sarasota. We have been waiting for a Starbucks here for 30 years, Sharon said. The couple sat on the outside patio of the shop, drinking coffee in the shade before the afternoon heat hit. Rolfe said she hired 14 new staff members, and seven more transferred from other Starbucks stores, for a total of 22 staff members, including herself. Store hours for the new Starbucks are 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and until 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. The First Watch breakfast and lunch restaurant, next door to Starbucks, is scheduled to open Monday.Email: ashirk@sun-herald.comStarbucks open for National Coffee DayBy ALLISON SHIRKSTAFF WRITER SUN PHOTOS BY ALLISON SHIRKLeft: The new drive-thru Starbucks at Cocoplum Village Shops o U.S. 41 still had cars lined up late Monday morning.

Our Town Page 4 C The Sun /Tuesday, September 30, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE that include intersection improvements as well as realigning Sandhill Boulevard to follow an FPL easement east of the current road. Sandhill is now a curving, three-lane road, with turn lanes down the center, that winds from Kings Highway south until it turns east and straightens out heading into Deep Creek. While there are two left-turn lanes allowing trafc onto Kings Highway, peak hours regularly see trafc back-ups in these lanes. Oliver Rodrigues, FTE senior vice president, described the left turns off Sandhill Boulevard as a critical movement due to the volume of drivers getting on Interstate 75. He added that, if nothing is done as the trafc count grows, Sandhill will become decient within ve years, with Kings Highway following suit. The current average number of cars that travel daily along Sandhill is 16,700, which is up 1,600 from last year, according to the Charlotte County Metropolitan Planning Organization. Projections show the trafc count reaching 21,800 by the year 2035, between Deep Creek Boulevard and Kings Highway, earning an F for its quality of service if improvements arent forthcoming. Similarly, the segment of Kings Highway between I-75 and Veterans Boulevard, which now registers an average daily trafc count of 35,820, up from 3,200 last year, would earn a failing grade as well in 20 years if something is not done. By 2035, it is estimated there would be a daily average of 51,700 on this stretch of road. Deep Creek Boulevard, north of Sandhill, also is approaching capacity. In just the last year, aver age daily trafc nearly doubled to 11,200 and is already at a D service level. All three proposals presented to county leaders included widening Sandhill Boulevard by at least two lanes. Project cost estimates range from $5 million to $12.2 million. The rst alternative, with a price tag of $9 million, is for widening Sandhill from two to four lanes from Kings to Rio de Janeiro Avenue. The other two options call for constructing a new highway traveling northwest along the FPL easement, from a point on Sandhill east of Deep Creek Boulevard to a new intersection at Kings Highway. However, initial inquiries to FPL about using its land were not promising, Rodrigues said. We did not receive an encouraging response, he said. Commissioner Chris Constance seemed particularly interested in the FPL route, but said the new road should only go from Deep Creek Boulevard to Kings Highway. He said the shorter route would be less expensive to build and motorists would easily gure out how to nd the shortcut in order to save time. Still another possibility, less expensive and more short term, would be to merely extend the two left-turn lanes on Sandhill Boulevard. In further discussion, it was made clear that the Walmart Supercenter, constructed near the Kings-Sandhill inter section in 2005, is not part of the problem. To earn approvals, the 230,000-square-foot retail store agreed to spend $2.3 million in off-site roadway improvements at the nearby intersection, the I-75 north ramp and along Kings Highway to the DeSoto County line. Commissioners directed the consultant to, once again, approach FPL about the use of its land.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comBUSYFROM PAGE 1 to let the fumes get out. The report noted that the Blausteins would have died, had they not been alerted to the danger in their home. They were lucky to have the CO detectors in the house, McElroy told the Sun. Thats the rst time in my 17 years (as a reghter) that Ive seen one wake someone up in the middle of the night in a house that doesnt have gas appliances. But it shows you they can save lives. Furious, Marty contacted General Motors he was done with the Volt. Marty thinks the car turned on by itself; GM thinks he left it on. Regardless, the former Volt driver was concerned that the car didnt have the ability to shut itself off if the engine was on and the car was plugged in. GM agreed to let Marty terminate his lease. Marty said he was paying $380 per month, and had about two years left on a three-year agreement. Chevy spokeswoman Michelle Malcho told the Sun the Volt Marty had has been repaired. She added that the newer model Volts have a function that shuts the cars down if the engine is running and they are plugged in to charge. Marty said hes always been a car guy. Hes owned Corvettes, Camaros, Porsches you name it. But he was intrigued by the modern features offered in the Volt. I love the technology, Marty said. I drove it about 10,000 miles and Im not sure I even put $100 worth of gas into it. It was amazing. But, he said almost dying on that Aug. 31 morning is enough to keep him away. Thats the end of that saga, Marty said. However, he and his wife will never forget they almost werent around to tell it. Weve had friends and people we tell the story to asking us about the (CO) detectors, said Betzy, 53. Because we were very lucky to have them. McElroy said the detectors are included in new houses, but not many older homes have them. The re lieutenant said its not a bad idea to look into getting one if you use gas appliances or keep a car in the garage. Carbon monoxide is colorless, tasteless and odorless, so you dont even know its there, McElroy said. (CO detectors) can save people, just like smoke detectors. Some smoke alarms double as CO alarms, and McElroy said a resident can look right on the device to see what functions it has. CO alarms cost about the same as a smoke alarm, he said.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comALARMSFROM PAGE 1tonights Just Neighbors meeting at 6 p.m. at St. Davids, 401 S. Broadway, Englewood.

NORTH PORT Rainfall this past weekend totaled more than 8 inches in areas of the city, causing the city Public Works Department to place high water and street closure signs in areas that experienced street ooding. Street ooding began early Friday evening, when 4 inches of rain fell locally in less than half an hour. On Saturday, the city received 2 inches of rain, and then 2 more inches on Sunday. North Port City Manager Jonathan Lewis said it was not the amount of rain that fell, but that it came in a short period of time, causing drainage problems on city streets. North Port was built on a swamp, and sometimes Mother Nature doesnt like to be controlled, Lewis said. Lewis said localized ooding within city limits happened Friday and non-localized ooding continued Saturday and Sunday. Non-localized ooding is when rain falls north of the city, and it ows down to North Port, causing ooding in canals and other city water structures. Lewis said the main problem Friday evening was that heavy rainfall occurred in only 30 minutes at 5:30 p.m., but by 7 p.m. all streets were passable for driving with the exception of the intersection of Eager Street and U.S. 41, near Chevron. The Public Works department classies passable streets to be roads with less than 6 inches of water covering them. Jockey Club resident Linda Peterson said street ooding caused a sinkhole on the corner of Woods Lane and Fairbrook Street near her home. All the driveways on Fairbrook and Shenandoah streets had standing water on Monday, and Peterson said she and some of her neighbors experienced ooding in their backyards. Thank God it stops after just a little bit or else all the houses would be under, Peterson said. Public Works employ ees came out Monday afternoon to mark off the area of the sinkhole just right of the stop sign at the intersection of Woods and Fairbrook. One employee said street ooding normally occurs off Biscayne Drive, and it is unusual to get a sinkhole or other ooding in the Jockey Club area. Lewis said the R-36 Canal, which is a water structure north of Estates Drive, is now full because of rainfall that happened north of the county on Saturday. Heavy rains have started at a time when the city is currently drafting a new oodplain map that ags many areas of the city as high-risk for ooding. The new map would recommend that a larger portion of North Ports residents purchase ood insurance for their homes, but the map is only in the drafting stages and will not be nalized until possibly later next year, said Elizabeth Wong, stormwater manager for the city. No ooding inside homes or businesses was reported from the heavy rainfall this past weekend, but Erin Bryce, city community outreach manager, sent an email to city staff Monday after noon with a list of roads that still had some degree of standing water. Roads west of Sumter Boulevard off Interstate 75, both north and south, still had standing water as of the citys inspection Monday. Hennessey Street and Haddaway and Gadboys avenues, located north of I-75 and west of the Myakkahatchee Creek, still had standing water too, as well as Estates Drive and Tidwell Street in North Port Estates. Bryce said the Myakkahatchee Creek rose about 2 feet since Sunday evening, and the city was going to monitor water levels closely through Monday night. The Myakka River at Myakka State Park was 8.85 feet as of late Monday afternoon. Its ood stage is 7 feet. Forecasters believe the river could continue to rise. Authorities closed the park to the public on Sunday.Email: ashirk@sun-herald.comWeekend flooding still being monitored By ALLISON SHIRK STAFF WRITERWHATS AHEADThe upcoming weather forecast for Sarasota and Charlotte counties: Scattered rains moving in from the Gulf of Mexico are expected to last through Tuesday. Rain is expected to subside by Wednesday, and a cold front is anticipated for early next week. Scattered thunderstorms moving in from the Gulf Saturday after noon could cause a drop in temperatures on Sunday and Monday. A decrease in humidity will be the significant change as well as temperatures that could drop to 72 degrees. The cold front could inch south of Charlotte County, but WINK-TV meteorologist Jim Farrell said it is still too early to tell how far it may reach.

NORTH PORT City Manager Jonathan Lewis visited North Port Public Works employees Monday morning to explain he wont investigate allegations of workers cheating on FEMA testing unless someone steps forward. Lewis, who spent about 20 minutes with the group, said the accusations recently made in a regional newspaper by unnamed Public Works employees in which many admitted to sharing answers during online and classroom testing for Federal Emergency Management Agency certications didnt warrant an investigation. Some said its been going on for years, long before Lewis became the city manager in 2011. No complaint has been made to the Public Works director, Human Resources or to me, Lewis wrote in an email to city commissioners Monday. He was in meetings most of the day and only available by email. I met and spoke to the Public Works Operations folks and while I covered multiple things the most basic issue is that I would not launch an investigation based on the statement of a reporter. I reminded them that multiple of them have come and met with me over the three-plus years on a variety of issues from small to big that they are still there so the concept that they would be red if they came to me does not seem to be valid. If I get a complaint from an employee it will be investigated appropriately. I also made sure that they understood that there would be no investigation into who did or did not speak to a reporter, Lewis wrote. Vice Mayor Rhonda DiFranco, who is retired from the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce, said she understands why an investigation cant take place unless someone speaks up. She doesnt mind if all employees involved came forward as a group to give information about the testing procedures. Ive had to go to the FBI when I believed something wasnt right, she said. Without one person having the courage to come forward, I look at it as everyone may have been involved. It tarnishes the departments image for everyone. DiFranco said she was surprised to learn that the alleged cheating may have also occurred in the Utilities department. Employees told the Sun that cheat sheets are easy to nd on FEMA testing days. In some cases, a single employee allegedly took the test for other employees. Lewis wrote to the Sun that he was unaware of any testing issues in Utilities. Now to nd that employees in other departments are going to the newspaper instead of the administration is an issue because we cant look into something and x it or make changes to the policy if we dont have someone come forward, she said. Its about integrity in the city. Its an insult to the city, government and the residents if you cant be trusted to take a test. While she was a law enforcement ofcer, DiFranco said, she took all of the FEMA tests. She said she would be angry if she learned there was cheating on certications in the re or police departments. I havent heard that at all, she said. The police and reghters are really the primary services needed during crisis management situations. Public Works employees are secondary. They take these tests to learn about incident command. Its really so when they show up after a hurricane or other crisis, they know who is in charge and dont say, Im not listening to you. Public Works employees really dont even have to take those tests, but like everyone in the county, we have committed to them. We should make sure the tests are taken properly. Ed McCrane, chief of Sarasota County Emergency Management, reached out to North Port after learning there might be issues with testing. We can help if they ask for it, he said. Since no one came forward, they are not investigating. Rich Berman (city emergency manager) is also highly qualied to teach these classes, so there are resources available if needed. In his email to the Sun Lewis wrote, if an employee steps forward we will take meaningful action. More importantly everyone needs to understand why this would not be OK. Incident command is crucial to a city during recovery from an emergency. Every employee needs at least a basic under standing of the process. Having been through part of (Hurricane) Charley, and more specically (storms) Frances, Jeanne, Fay and Wilma, I know City employees are critical to recovery after an event. They can be difference makers for a community. Understanding this process is one way to help ensure disaster recovery is done effectively. Patrick Murphy, a former 10-year Public Works employee, said no worker will come forward to report mass cheating to a supervisor, director or the city manager. In all tests we took, for everything but our CDL (commercial driver license), we were coached and there were cheat sheets, he said, adding many of the employees dont know how to operate computers. These are guys who operate heavy equipment. One time a guy nearly crushed the dummy during the CPR class and passed and was certied. No one is going to speak up about these things. If they do, they quickly become targeted. They are a doormat. Then they dont have a job. Murphy noted a recent incident involving a city employee. An employee saw two supervisors rummaging through his vehicle parked at the (Public Works) yard and called police, he said. The process became so frustrating for the employee that he withdrew the complaint so the police didnt investigate. It should have been a cut-and-dry case since there are cameras in the yard. For some reason, the hard drive had gone missing. According to city Human Resources, that August incident is still being investigated.Email: FEMA testing not questionedBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHCOMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR Blessing of the Animals set The Animal Welfare League, 3519 Drance St., Port Charlotte, invites all animals, great and small, to a Blessing of the Animals ceremony at 12:30 p.m. Sunday.

Michael Alan Carey, of Punta Gorda, was arrested Friday afternoon for the string of thefts that had occurred the previous night at Palms & Pines Riverside Resort (5400 Riverside Drive), according to the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce. Carey allegedly stole three three-wheel bicycles, nine shing poles, a tackle box, a TomTom GPS unit, a leather Harley-Davidson vest and other miscellaneous items. One of the shing poles was taken from an unsecured boat, and the other items were stolen from unlocked vehicles or from being left in the open, the report shows. The total value of the items taken was about $1,200. While a deputy was investigating the crimes Friday, a resident told him he saw Carey riding one of the stolen bikes at 3 a.m. The deputy made contact with Carey who was staying with a friend nearby and tried to question him. Carey told the deputy he wasnt going to talk because the deputy did not have a warrant. When the deputy said he didnt need a warrant because he had probable cause, Carey ran. The investigating deputy and a backup deputy chased Carey for several minutes through thick mud and heavy woods before catching him, the report shows. Authorities allegedly found the stolen items at the house where Carey was staying. The suspect is facing eight theft charges, four burglary charges, and a charge of resisting an ofcer.

Our Town Page 8 C The Sun /Tuesday, September 30, 2014 Obama should back up words with actionEditor: How is a man judged? How about looking at his peers? Consider the person associating with William Ayers, Frank Marshall Davis, and Jeremiah Wright. These individuals have an inuence on President Obamas intellectual and political development which includes wealth redistribution and government health care. President Obama believes that over time, people respond to civility and rational arguments. A proper position when our commander in chief has the ability to bring people and/or countries together to listen to coherent arguments. How is Russian aggression curtailed? How about trying economic sanctions? The White House appears tentative in the face of global threats. Their approach to foreign policy is drawing criticism from opponents and allies alike. Obama has also made red line ultimatums. Red line ultimatums should be taken seriously and those issuing them should have the power and resolute strength to back them up. Does our president say what he means and mean what he says? Is he a man of his word? Does he waver? These problems wont go away with rhetoric. Our president wants the world to work within his rational terms. The world isnt rational. If nancial sanctions prevail, does that mean Russia will give back Crimea and pull out of Georgia and Ukraine? Unlikely. The world needs the president of the United States to be very presidential and have international credibility. President Obama will be judged historically. Was he a good commander in chief? Was the ofce too big for the man?Lloyd Stilson Port CharlotteDo not give in to developerEditor: A recent headline read Shelter on Shaky Grounds. The county government and city of Punta Gorda are informed by a big money developer that the animal shelter in Punta Gorda may lose its lease unless this big money developer is allowed to circumvent existing law by building higher-than-allowed condominiums on property adjacent to the shelter. Or the developer will take property now leased to the animal shelter and use it to build condominiums on that land. Somewhere in the archives of Punta Gorda the lease for this land was lost or was just assumed on city land. No, says developer! It belongs to us, and we will not honor a new lease unless you let us build what we want on the adjoining property. Here we go again. Someone puts a gun to the head of government and the government melts. Lets tell these people we are going to use the law of eminent domain and take this property off their hands for the good of the people! The shelter is a wonderful facility and needs to remain where it is. This developer is after his big bucks and doesnt give one hoot about the shelters importance to the community. Let the people know they too are important and that it is in the best interest of the animals and community to keep the shelter. Suggest the developer donate the land to the city.Wilfred A. Woods Port CharlotteHealth care was very goodEditor: Before the desperate political smearing really gets underway, my husband and I would like to publicly thank the many people who so ably helped care for him during his recent long-term illness. This note of appreciation is intended for everyone, from the Englewood EMS crew to the doctors and nurses at Englewood Hospital who quickly diagnosed his problem and suggested that he be transported to a larger facility at once. We want to especially thank the entire staff of Fawcett Memorial Hospital, from the neurosurgeon, Dr. Memen, to the nurses in the ICU area and eventually the rehab section nurses and therapists whose dedication and expertise brought him back to living a normal life. Lastly, this public thank you must also include even the personnel in the valet parking service to the many volunteers who wheeled me to his room almost every day and, yes, even the security per sonnel at the hospital must be thanked for taking time to help in any way they could. I apologize if I have missed even one person because we feel your entire readership should know and appreciate the excellent care available in this area.Betty, Steve Mgrditchian EnglewoodVoting against 1 percent taxEditor: Here are some facts for Charlotte County taxpayers about the 1 percent sales tax. I attended the focus group meetings and spoke for the taxpayer. County staff refused to allow public input, however the focus group voted to allow public input. A high-salaried, nonresident county employee provided a list of projects already scored by county administration. There were presentations by the county staff supporting those projects favored by commissioners and administration. The focus group was then asked to score each project. There was no available option for a zero score. Late in the process, the group objected to the poor and manipulative scoring system. Individuals requesting our tax dollars gave presentations. $15 million was requested to satisfy a nancial shortfall due to their poor management. I then read aloud their 2012 tax return. A request was made for $2.6 million for widening and beautication of Toledo Blade Boulevard through Murdock Village to make it more attractive for investors. Another request was made for $32 million for the Justice Center. These projects were rejected by the focus group but our commissioners have declared that you and I will pay for the Justice Center expansion like it or not. Our sheriff said he did not need $32 million for the jail. He stated that Charlotte County will not need an expansion for 20 years. This is government at its worst. There is no sunshine in this administration, only smoke and mirrors. The vote is yours. Please vote wisely.Joan Fischer Port CharlotteVote no on sales taxEditor: A temporary sales tax that is still here after 20 years? I nd these priorities for $9 million Olean Boulevard and $22.4 million Piper Road North expansions and sales tax be used to fund them very questionable. Neither is a priority and they provide no benet to 95 percent of Charlotte citizens. If Olean Boulevard is ever widened, the project should be funded under the countys capital improvements budget with funding from impact fees, gasoline taxes, etc., revenues. The Piper Road situation reminds one of Murdock Village and the expensive bridge to nowhere. Millions of dollars already spent because it provides access to Airport Commerce Park, where many commercial lots, having full utility hookup, have languished for years awaiting new business purchase and establishment of operations. Good dream, but no reality. Such lots remain unsold with no viable sales prospects. This very large construction cost for non-priority dreams could pave many deteriorating residential Charlotte County streets, negating the need for formation of street drainage MSBUs and saving property owners millions in special assessments. Thats a big deal! U.S. median income shrunk 8.2 percent over the last ve years. The majority of Charlotte County citizens fall below that annual income level and are already unreasonably taxed by this government. Smart, informed people will not fund any of the wish list dreams of our politicians and special interest groups. Get a tax cut! Vote no to extend the sales tax extension. Your pocketbook will be the winner.Larry Hofmeister Punta GordaDissidents should leave the churchEditor: I dont know what disgusts me more, the accusations by the two groups, Call to Action and Voice of the People, or the Sun, which chooses to print these unsubstantiated claims. These are two anti-Catholic groups who have no Catholics in them and they wont prove it. If they knew the Catholic Church, they would know that when a priest is ordained he has allegiance to a particular bishop. This is what the vow of obedience is all about. The bishop decides what assignments are made for the good of particular parishes. He is the head of the diocese, as fathers are the head of families. Under the vow of celibacy, those two things cannot co-exist and be faithful to both. In the 1500 era, dissidents left the church and set up their own churches, run by laymen, without the popes authority. So I say to Call to Action people and Voice people, go with our blessing. And get off our backs.Shirley Byrne Punta GordaWaiting for those lettersEditor: And I hope you realize Im just dropping a stink bomb and believe in no such conspiracy on the part of the Democrats. The letters I read from the tea party are funnier than the daily comics and those people really are quite easy to manipulate. Just watch how many names Ill be called in the days after this goes to print if it does.Paul St. Germain Punta Gorda OUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Letters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

The combination hardly screams prosperity to prospective businesses. Thats the challenge Charlotte County planning and redevelopment staff face as they begin nalizing the districts revitalization plans following the nal public meeting tonight at the Cultural Center. The market dictates what businesses survive or die in an industry or at any location, but the county can create conditions that hinder or help the market work. Sometimes those market forces are far from here. For decades, the northeast corner of Harbor Boulevard and U.S. 41 was bookended by a pair of gas stations, a typical land use for a high trafc intersection. One of the former stations closed following the 2001 merger of Chevron and Texaco, the latter required to divest itself of certain operations as a regulatory requirement of the deal. The lack of competition didnt matter when ExxonMobil pulled its Mobil gas stations out of many Florida counties in 2004, including the location opposite the abandoned Texaco station in Charlotte. The Mobil parcel is now a 7-Eleven sans gas station. The County Commission made a strategic decision to rezone the Texaco property to allow for a wider variety of uses, specically a car lot. The 2013 vote was met with skepticism by Parkside proponents who argued that a more aesthetically appealing business would enhance the planned gateway beautication project now being planned. As Sun Staff Writer Gary Roberts reported Monday, that car lot is now gone, itself a victim of market and nancial forces. Those same forces produced two thriving businesses a block north of Harbor, where Don Gasgarths Charlotte County Ford and the Joe Tiseos Pik N Run oc cupy opposing corners of Olean Boulevard, itself the object of a planned gateway improvement project. Not coincidentally, both men are active and inuential stakeholders in the district. The point is that revitalization and beautication is about the future, not the present. The goal should be to create conditions, both visually and regulatory, that promote economic activity within the district. The idea of a gateway is to entice motorists off the highway. And while improvements at the two main intersections will be good for the businesses anking them, that will be a secondary benet. The plan calls for extending those peripheral enhancements throughout the district, with multiuse trails, park makeovers, landscaping and potential zoning changes that give Parkside an identiable sense of place; a place where people want to live, work and play. If successful, the plan will spur private investment in the area by residents, landlords and businesses that will increase property values and reduce the conditions of blight. The county investment in infrastructure and amenities is the necessary catalyst needed to initiate the virtuous cycle so critical to Parksides future. But it is the market, including the market of ideas that Parkside stakeholders bring to the discussion, that will ultimately determine whether the effort succeeds or fails. A decade from now, if we are still debating the relative values of vacant prime parcels versus used car lots, well know which forces directed the districts destiny.

The Sun /Tuesday, September 30, 2014 C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINT President Obamas speech at the United Nations last week was an important turning point in American foreign policy and in his presidency. Thats the verdict of Brookings Institution scholar and former Clinton White House aide William Galston, a Democrat who has not been an unqualied admirer of this Democratic presidents foreign policy. Whether Obamas decision to launch air strikes against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and Khorasan terrorists is a turning point, it was at least a move in the direction of a tradition in American foreign policy that has been conspicuously lacking in his administration. That tradition was christened by Walter Russell Mead in his 2001 book, Special Providence, as the Jacksonian Impulse, one of four that have together shaped American foreign policy since the founding of the republic. The others, named after American leaders, are the Hamiltonian, Wilsonian and Jeffersonian traditions. Jacksonians, like their namesake, Andrew Jackson, are generally not much interested in foreign policy. But when Americans are attacked, they respond with righteous fury and a determination to utterly destroy the enemy. Franklin Roosevelt invoked that tradition when in his Pearl Harbor speech he said, in a line that drew not just applause but whoops and hollers, The American people, in their righteous might, will win through to absolute victory. Thats not Obamas style. He came to ofce pledged to make nice with hostile Iran and unfriendly Russia. Even while announcing air strikes in Iraq and Syria, he made sure to say America needs allies and will not put boots on the ground. Obamas reluctance to take a Jacksonian stand is obvious, but Islamic States beheadings of Americans were something he could not let pass unrebuked. Meads analysis in his American Interest blog was headlined, A President Surrenders. Which of Meads other three traditions has Obama followed? Certainly not the Hamiltonian tradition, named for Alexander Hamilton, which seeks to make the world safe for American commerce, accepts amoral concepts like national interest and balance of power and is willing to use force in morally ambiguous situations. Obama has been willing to let Pacic and Atlantic trade negotiations languish in order to placate labor unions nostalgic for long-gone steel and automotive jobs. He invokes but does not imitate the supposed realism of George H. W. Bush. He has allowed the budget sequester to hollow out American military forces. One might expect Obama to embrace a Wilsonian affection for international institutions and respect for international law. Many Democrats criticized George W. Bush for ignoring them. As a presidential candidate, Secretary of State John Kerry disparaged the trumped up, so-called coalition of the bribed, the coerced, the bought and the extorted. But Bushs coalition that went into Iraq included more than 30 nations, most of them democracies. Kerrys and Obamas coalition against the Islamic State includes maybe eight, mostly autocracies. On Iraq, unlike both Bushes, Obama has not sought authorization from Congress or the United Nations. He was happy to pocket the Nobel Peace Prize. But unlike Woodrow Wilson, who sought to subordinate the United States to the League of Nations, Obama seeks only applause, not approval, from international organizations. The one of Meads four traditions that Obama comes closest to embracing is the Jeffersonian. Thomas Jefferson wanted to keep a pristine agricultural America apart from the evil European empires. Obama talks repeatedly about nation building at home, which appears to mean maintaining and expanding a tottering entitlement system and welfare state. Jefferson did make accommodations to reality. He swallowed constitutional qualms and purchased Louisiana. He sent the Navy and Marines to quell the Barbary pirates. His successor, James Madison, accepted a Hamiltonian Bank of the United States. Obamas actions against the Islamic State, however limited, and his support for the DoddFrank Act, which props up the big banks, are in the same spirit. But the impulse is different. Jeffersonians want to protect virtuous America from a vicious world. Obama has generally sought to keep a too-often vicious America from sullying a supposedly virtuous world. Obamas foreign policy initiatives negotiations with Iran, the reset with Russia, mollify ing rhetoric for Muslims were based on the assumption that his own election would make the rest of the world take a benign view of America. That assumption seems to be in tatters. Meads argument is that American foreign policy has been successful because American leaders have, in varying proportions, blended its four traditions together. Obama seems to be aloof, to varying degrees, from all of them. Michael Barone is a senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner. Readers can reach him via www. washingtonexaminer. com.Americas four foreign policy traditions Michael Barone My friend Ezekiel Emanuel, in his typically smart, provocative and bullheaded way, has decreed that he hopes to die at age 75, which would give him just 18 more years during which to exasper ate friends and family. Zekes wrong, of course. Yet hes wrong, as always, in an interesting way, one that usefully prompts the rest of us to consider not only our mortality but how we would like to live out the measure of our years. Doubtless, death is a loss, Emanuel, a bioethicist, physician and health policy expert, writes in The Atlantic. So, he argues, is living too long: It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but is nonetheless deprived. It robs us of our creativity and ability to contribute to work, society, the world. It transforms how people experience us, relate to us, and, most important, remember us. We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic. As a result, Emanuels plan, on reaching 75, is to issue new instructions to his doctors. No life-prolonging measures. No screenings such as colonoscopies or cardiac stress tests; no treatments such as chemotherapy or cardiac bypass. Not even u shots or antibiotics nothing but palliative care, to alleviate pain. Emanuels essay arrives in a tting season, as Jews begin a period of repentance during which, we are told, God decides who shall live and who shall die. One of the Torah portions read during this time reminds us that Sarah gave birth at age 90, an event so unlikely she named her son Isaac, derived from the Hebrew to laugh. It is tting, as well, that the traditional Jewish birthday greeting is to wish that the celebrant live 120 years the lifespan of Moses. Relevant to Emanuels concern about descending into a doddering old age, the Torah relates that while Moses years were advanced, his eyes remained undimmed and his vigor unabated. These two stories help explain why Emanuel is wrong. Emanuel says that by age 75 he will have had the satisfaction of seeing my grandchildren born and beginning their lives. Why stop there, when you could dance at their bar mitzvahs or even, God willing, their weddings? Moses didnt just leave the Israelites at Sinai and wish them luck; he lived long enough to watch them mature and enter the Promised Land. Likewise, advances in reproductive technology notwithstanding, nonagenarian births are not likely to happen to modern-day Sarahs. But her story offers the reminder that we cannot know what surprises, and joys, our later years may hold. Where Emanuel veers off course, I think, is in his conviction that the capacity to be productive is what makes life worth living. He bemoans the sad decline, from author ing papers to taking up hobbies until, eventually, life comes to center around sitting in the den reading or listening to books on tape and doing crossword puzzles. This goes, I know, against the Emanuel family DNA, but there is no sin in slowing down. There is satisfaction in completing the crossword. You dont always have to bike past the roses on your way up the mountain. In high gear. Where Emanuel makes a powerful point is in condemning the manic desperation to endlessly extend life. Medical choices should not be dictated by a patients age, but they should be informed by it. Extreme treatments to save or even minimally extend the life of a young mother are not necessarily appropriate for an 80-year-old grandmother. Physicians fail their patients by automatically defaulting to treatment. Here I break from Emanuel. He opposes euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide, but this position does not give adequate weight to the dignity with which we would like to live and die. Why must a terminally ill cancer patient suffer an agonizing decline when there is a more merciful alternative? Why, and this is a harder question, must an Alzheimers patient be condemned to slowly lose mental and physical capacities? Facing that terrible situation, I would prefer the choice not to be remembered, in Emanuels words, as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic. Emanuel concludes with an escape clause: At 75, he writes, I retain the right to change my mind and offer a vigorous and reasoned defense of living as long as possible. I look forward to that uncharacteristic about-face, and to sitting down to more of Zekes excellent cooking at 76, 80 and beyond. Ruth Marcus is a columnist for The Washington Post.

As Hamid Karzai left the political stage, the new president was locked into an uneasy partnership with his defeated rival, Abdullah Abdullah, who became the countrys rst chief executive. With a hug for the cameras, both sides appeared determined to reach across factions and avoid a descent into an abyss similar to what has happened in Iraq, where the governments failure to mend lingering sectarian divisions following a full U.S. withdrawal helped give rise to the brutal Islamic State group.

Page 2 WIRE The Sun /Tuesday, September 30, 2014 NATIONAL/WORLD NEWS | WORLDNetanyahu: Hamas, Islamic State share creedUNITED NATIONS (AP) In a blistering speech to the United Nations, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned on Monday that Hamas and the Islamic State group are branches of the same poisonous tree, both bent on world domination through terror, just as the Nazis were. Netanyahu also lashed back at Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who accused Israel last week of carrying out war crimes and conducting a war of genocide during the ghting in Gaza. Netanyahu said Hamas committed the real war crimes in Gaza by using Palestinian civilians as human shields. Addressing the U.N. General Assemblys annual ministerial meeting, the Israeli leader argued that Israels ght against Hamas and the U.S. Syria OK with US airstrikesUNITED NATIONS (AP) Syrias foreign minister said Monday that his government is satised with the U.S.-led bombing campaign against the Islamic State group, adding that the airstrikes should be expanded to include all other militant groups in Syria. In an interview with The Associated Press, Walid al-Moallem said the ght against terrorism has aligned Damascus with Western and Arab opponents in ghting the same enemy. Al-Moallem said the U.S. does not inform Syria of every strike before it happens, but its OK. We are ghting ISIS, they are ghting ISIS, he said, referring to the group by one of its acronyms. He spoke as U.S.-led coalition airstrikes targeted towns in northern and eastern Syria controlled by the Islamic State group, including one strike that Syrian activists said hit a grain silo and reportedly killed civilians.5 more bodies found at Japan volcanoKISO, Japan (AP) Five more bodies were found near the summit of a Japanese volcano on Monday, bringing the total presumed dead to 36, police said, as toxic gases and ash from the still-erupting mountain forced rescue workers to halt efforts to recover the victims. Eight more bodies were airlifted off Mount Ontake before work on the ash-blanketed peak was called off around 1:30 p.m., said Naofumi Miyairi, a spokesman for the Nagano prefecture police.

Other jurors were let go due to work conicts or language barriers, among other reasons, as jury selection began in the second attempt by prosecutors to secure a death sentence in the Arizona case that became a tabloid TV sensation. Arias, 34, has acknowledged killing ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander in 2008 at his suburban Phoenix home and claimed it was self-defense. ARIASUS consumer spending up 0.5 percent in AugustWASHINGTON (AP) Americans boosted spending by a healthy amount in August, offer ing welcome evidence that the economy is on solid footing heading into the nal quarter of the year. Consumer spending in August rose 0.5 percent from the previous month after showing no gain in July, the Commerce Department reported Monday. It was the best result since spending also expanded 0.5 percent in June. Helped by higher wages and salaries, income rose a modest 0.3 percent in August, slightly faster than a 0.2 percent July increase. The acceleration in spending added to signs that the economy is sustaining strength in the current July-September quarter.

The study, presented Monday at an American Association for Cancer Research meeting, found that men who regularly used anti-inammatory pain pills had a 13 per cent lower risk of prostate cancer and 17 percent fewer dangerous, highgrade tumors. A second study suggested the mechanism responsible for preventing the tumors could be the medicines ability to block production of a hormone that spurs cancer growth.General Motors ignition-switch death toll risesDETROIT (Detroit Free Press) The number of people killed in crashes caused by General Motors defective ignition switches has reached 23 as of Friday, according to GM victim fund chief Ken Feinberg. Feinberg said he has received 153 applications for compensation from families claiming to have lost a loved one in an accident caused by the ignition switches. GM has recalled 2.6 million small cars, primarily from between 2003 and 2007 model years to replace the ignition switches. Claims that have not been awarded compensation are either still being evaluated or have insufcient records to prove their case. Families of people who died will get at least $1 million.Judge rules he cant stop Detroit water shutoffsDETROIT (Detroit Free Press) Detroits bankruptcy judge said Monday that he lacked the author ity to issue a restraining order to stop water shutoffs over delinquent bills, saying that there is no constitutional right to water and a moratorium would be a nancial hit to the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department. Chapter 9 strictly limits the courts power in a bankruptcy case, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes said as he read a ruling from the bench Monday morning. While Rhodes ruling made it clear he under stood the scope of the problem of water shutoffs in a city with deep poverty, he said the plaintiffs in the case advocates including Moratorium Now, the Peoples Water Board and the National Action Network did not make the case that a six-month moratorium was necessary or within his powers.Bank robbery suspect hams it up in mug shotDENVER (AP) A man captured after authorities say he tried to ee a bank robbery in Denver doesnt seem too upset about his arrest.

WHITINGTONWalmart: Tracy Morgan wasnt wearing seat belt (LA Times) Tracy Morgan and others in his limousine were not wearing seat belts during a June highway accident that left a fellow comedian dead, Walmart alleged Monday in its response to his lawsuit. The lawsuit, led in July in U.S. District Court in New Jersey by Morgan and three other survivors of the crash, alleges that Walmart was negligent when the driver of one of its tractor trailers struck Morgans limousine on the New Jersey Turnpike the night of June 6. Walmarts response was that Morgan and the others injured in the limo could have avoided being hurt by wearing seat belts. Plaintiffs injuries, if any, were caused, in whole or in part, by plaintiffs failure to properly wear an appropriate available seatbelt restraint device, Walmarts Monday ling said. By failing to exercise ordinary care in making use of available seatbelts, plaintiffs acted unreasonably and in disregard of plaintiffs own best interests. BEIRUT (LA Times) The United States and Arab partners conducted eight airstrikes against militant positions across northern Syria on Sunday and Monday, destroying armed vehicles, extremist compounds and a training camp, among other targets, the Pentagon said. But no new U.S. attacks were reported near the besieged northern Syrian border town of Ayn-al-Arab, known as Kobane in Kurdish. Kobane has been facing a militant onslaught from three sides for more than a week, forcing some 150,000 mostly Kurdish Syrians to ee to neighboring Turkey. The U.S. air campaign struck militant targets near Kobane for the rst time on Saturday. Kurdish activists have called for international intervention to avoid Kobane being overrun by Islamic extremists approaching from the east, south and west. On Monday, the Syrian opposition reported, militants who are now within a few miles of Kobane unleashed fresh shelling on the town, which is being defended by a Kurdish Syrian militia force. The secular Kurdish forces defending Kobane say they are outgunned by the heavily armed Islamist militants. The latest airstrikes in Syria are part of President Barack Obamas declared strategy to degrade and ultimately destroy the Islamic State group. The al-Qaida breakaway faction has seized vast stretches of territory inside Syria and neighboring Iraq. U.S.-led airstrikes against militant positions inside Syria began last week. In Iraq, U.S. warplanes and drones have been targeting Islamic State positions since mid-August. In the latest attacks inside Syrian territory, the U.S. Central Command said that ghter jets and re motely piloted drones again struck across a broad swath of the country, from Aleppo in the northwest to Raqqa in north-central Syria to Dair Elzur in the east. Targets included a former air base near Aleppo, two military vehicles near Dair Elzur, and enemy compounds near Raqqa, considered the capital of the Islamic State group.US-led forces strike Islamic State again WASHINGTON (AP) The intruder who climbed a fence made it farther inside the White House than the Secret Service has publicly acknowledged, a Republican congressman said Monday. The disclosures came on the eve of a congressional oversight hearing with the director of the embattled agency assigned to protect the presidents life. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, who chairs a House subcommittee on national security oversight, said whistleblowers had informed his panel that Omar J. Gonzalez had made it far beyond the front doors of the White House, despite what the Secret Service had said in the hours after the incident. Chaffetz criticized the Secret Service and its leadership for not doing more to stop the suspect earlier. I have deep concerns that the president is not as safe as we want and need him to be, Chaffetz said on CNN. In the hours after the Sept. 19 fence-jumper incident, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan told The Associated Press that the suspect had been apprehended just inside the North Portico doors of the White House. The Secret Service also said that night that the suspect had been unarmed an assertion that was revealed to be false the next day when ofcials acknowledged Gonzalez had a knife with him when he was apprehended. Citing multiple unnamed sources, The Washington Post reported that Gonzalez ran past the guard at the front door and into the East Room, which is about halfway across the rst oor of the building. Gonzalez was eventually tackled by a counter-assault agent, the Post said. Getting so far would have required Gonzalez to dash through the main entrance hall, turn a cor ner, then run through the center hallway half-way across the rst oor of the building, which spans 168 feet in total, according to the White House Historical Association.White House intruder got far past front door Serving Arcadia Englewood North Port Port Charlotte Punta Gorda Venice1-866-463-1638 Placing your classi ed ad in Floridas Largest Classi ed Section is as easy as 1-2-3!Visit our new & improved website at sun-classi and schedule up to 5 free 3-line classi ed ads each week.

(AP) A western Pennsylvania dairy farmer says a 2-year-old bull that went missing for a month was likely pushed over a fence by a friends pregnant buffalo. Kevin Minor loaned out his 400-pound Watusi bull, Lucky, hoping it would mate with a friends buffalo near Mercer, about 60 miles north of Pittsburgh. Minor now believes the buffalo angrily rebuffed the bull and knocked him over the fence. It turns out the buffalo was already pregnant and gave birth two days after Lucky arrived. The bull was reported missing on July 14. The reported Thursday that the bull was located in some nearby woods a month later. Minor coaxed the bull back with a small group of cows, which the farmer knew the bull liked.ODD NEWS Farmer: Missing bull flipped over fence by buffalo FROM PAGE ONE of Floridas so-called Longevity Economy and urge state leaders to do more to support and attract the 50-and-up set. This report adds to a growing body of research that shows that in economic terms, gray is gold, said AARP Florida state director Jeff Johnson, who is presenting the data in Orlando today at the Florida Chamber Foundations Future of Florida Forum. Ive heard people say old people are a drain on our economy and are a problem. This shows (that the older generation) is a bedrock of the economy. Though Floridas population skews older than the national aver age, theres a common misconception that all retiree roads lead to Florida and a budding complacency that retir ing baby boomers will move to Florida regardless, Johnson said. Florida is still one of the countrys retirement meccas, but its losing market share to states like North Carolina and Tennessee, which have become more active in selling themselves. They have a Retire Tennessee just like there is a Visit Florida to promote tourism, Johnson said. There is no coordinated effort here state partners or a government organization. Instead, he said, Florida has largely left the business of luring retirees to individual developers of communities like The Villages. Beyond focusing on retirees, Florida also can do more to attract entrepreneurs in their 50s or older who have no intention of stopping work but are at an age ripe for starting their own businesses, Johnson said.GRAYFROM PAGE 1 ECONOMIC DRIVERSFloridians ages 50 or older make up less than 40 percent of the states population but are the states biggest economic generator, accounting for: 54 percent of Floridas economic output, aka gross domestic product ($428.7 billion) 58 percent of jobs (6.07 million) 53 percent of employee compensation ($235.6 billion) 67 percent of state and local taxes ($37.6 billion) 58 percent of total consumer spending ($364 billion) Source: AARP/Oxford Economics neighboring Syria and Iraq, sending shivers through the kingdom. Abu Qatada and alMaqdisi have denounced some of the groups practices as un-Islamic comments some analysts say have turned the preachers into assets in Jordans campaign to contain the Islamic State, which is believed to have attracted thousands of followers in the country. Authorities say their release from prison al-Maqdisi in June and Abu Qatada after an acquittal last week had nothing to do with politics. But the clerics outspokenness points to ways the U.S.-led ght against the group is upending old assumptions in the Middle East. At the core of the issue: the Islamic State group is viewed by some regional players as an existential threat, creating an unlikely mix of allies and reshaping regional priorities. Longtime foes such as the United States and Iran now nd themselves ghting a common enemy, as do Iraqs Arabs and Kurds who rarely agree on much. Squabbling Arab states, such as Qatar and its Gulf neighbors, have at least temporarily put aside their differences in the ght against the militants. One-time rivals view the Islamic State through a similar lens, that it represents a threat to their national security interests, said Fawaz Gerges, a London-based expert on Islamic movements. This tells you the extent to which the Islamic State has really recongured regional security and global security, he added. The coalition has quickly grown since the U.S. rst launched airstrikes against Islamic State targets in Iraq on Aug. 8, followed by bombardments in Syria that began Sept. 21. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Jordan have participated in attacks in Syria, while Qatar hosts an air base used by the coalition. France, the Netherlands, Denmark, Belgium and Britain are among European countries contributing to U.S. efforts to hit the Islamic State group in Iraq. The shakeup of alliances is perhaps most dramatic in Syria, ravaged by a civil war between President Bashar Assads troops and Sunni Muslim-led rebels, including Islamic State ghters and al-Qaidas local branch, the al-Nusra Front. A year ago, the Obama administration appeared on the verge of striking government targets in Syria after blaming Assad for a deadly chemical weapons attack on rebel-held areas outside Damascus. Now Assad stands to benet from U.S.-led airstrikes that are hitting some of his most ruthless enemies while, for now, staying clear of his ghters. Saudi Arabia and Qatar, among the most active supporters of the armed opposition seeking to topple Assad, are now part of the coalition that appears to be helping him militar ily, even if unintentionally. How long they are willing to do so is unclear. The coalition is being held together by American resolve, determination and leadership. But we shouldnt take it for granted, said Salman Shaikh, director of the Brookings Doha Center in Qatar. Qatars participation in the coalition is signicant. It has been under mounting political pressure over its backing of Islamist groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, its ties with Hamas, which fought a 50-day war with Israel this summer, and for not doing more to stamp out private funding for extremist groups. It now nds itself allied with three Gulf neighbors who pulled their ambassadors from the country earlier this year to protest Qatars perceived regional meddling and support for Islamists.

The editors of the 108-page compilation of studies wrote that people and animals tend to be more affected by extreme weather than changes in averages, so they pay attention to it. The public often connects extreme events to climate change, sometimes wrongly, so scientic analysis like this can help inform the publics understanding of our changing environment. The report seeks to nd how much and how man-made warming has inuenced the weather, said NOAA research meteorologist Martin Hoerling, an editor of the report. The inuence on Australias hottest year in more than a century is glaring, the reports editors said. Its almost impossible to explain Australias hot 2013 without climate change, said Peter Stott of the United Kingdoms meteorology ofce, another report editor. The most complicated issue is the California drought, the only extreme that has continued into this year. Three teams studied that states record drought in different ways. Two teams couldnt nd a link to global warming and water and air temperatures, but the third from Stanford University looked at high pressure pat terns in the air and found a connection. A high pressure system parks over the northern Pacic during Californias winters, which is normally when it gets rain. Higher atmospheric pressure usually means less storms and rain. The pressure was so strong last year that study lead author Daniel Swain called it a ridiculously resilient ridge. The Stanford team ran computer models with and without man-made warming from the burning of coal, oil and gas. The warming from greenhouse gases showed that the rain-blocking ridge of high pressure was more than three times more likely with man-made factors than without, Swain said. Theres denitely a climate change signal, Swain said. Earlier peer-reviewed studies looking at atmospheric patterns have also connected Californias drought to climate change. However, the editors of the journals special edition said that with the studies in Mondays report that couldnt nd a man-made signal in California and the indirect nature of the Swain report, it is unclear whether a global warming connection can be pinned on Californias drought.WARMINGFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOVehicles drive through ooded prone area during a storm in Phoenix on Saturday. legal framework for the United States to keep about 9,800 troops in the country to train, advise and assist Afghan national security forces after the current international combat mission ends Dec. 31. That number of troops is expected to be cut in half by the end of 2015, and the U.S. would leave only about 1,000 in a security ofce after the end of 2016. Karzai, the outgoing president, had refused to approve the deal, which is intended to help Afghan security forces combat the resilient Taliban insurgency. The Afghan government also is expected to sign an agreement this week with NATO that would outline the parameters of 4,000 to 5,0000 additional inter national troops mostly from Britain, Germany, Italy and Turkey to stay in Afghanistan in a noncombat role after the end of this year. Without a post-2014 residual force, U.S. military ofcials say there is a risk that the Afghan security force will deteriorate, units would run out of fuel, pay systems would fail and there would be a reduction in the overall readiness of the Afghan police and army. They say al-Qaida is in survival mode in Afghanistan, but that if all international forces left this year, the terror ist network would see it as a victory, regroup and again use the region to plan and conduct operations against the West. But there are serious questions about the ability of the Afghan security forces to take on the militants, even with a residual U.S. force down from a high of more than 130,000 U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan several years ago. Afghanistan doesnt have the full military necessary to defend the country, said Mohammad Doud Kalakani, a member of the Afghan parliament. No air force, no tanks, limited artillery. U.S. House Armed Services Committee Chairman Rep. Howard Buck McKeon, R-Calif., said Monday that he hoped President Barack Obama will view the signing of the security agreement as a roadmap for a robust continued engagement, and not a path to premature withdrawal.AFGHANFROM PAGE 1 LOS ANGELES (LA Times) If you dont want to dumb down with age, vitamin D may be the meal ticket. A boosted daily dosage of the vitamin over several months helped middle-aged rats navigate a difcult water maze better than their lower-dosed cohorts, according to a study published online Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The supplement appears to boost the machinery that helps recycle and repackage signaling chemicals that help neurons communicate with one another in a part of the brain that is central to memory and learning. This process is like restocking shelves in grocery stores, said study co-author Nada Porter, a biomedical pharmacologist at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine. Neurons also are better able to receive and process those signals in ways that are connected with memory formation and retrieval, the study found. The improvements in memory were associated with a level of a vitamin D metabolite that is about 50 percent higher than the one recommended by the Institute of Medicine to maintain healthy bones, but in line with what other experts recommend, according to Porter. Medical science has been expanding its view of the vitamins role beyond bone structure, linking deciencies to higher risks of cancer and other diseases, as well as to higher rates of cognitive decline in the elderly. But medical panels and researchers have questioned those studies and cast doubt on the value of vitamin D supplements. Vitamin D might ease effects of age on memory as s Q40x9BftO yOurllO ctT'r.s_ _ `CIS

But my broker tells me that United Technologies, which pays only 2 percent, is a better buy for appreciation and dividend increases, and he thinks I should buy that instead. DK, Erie, Pa. Dear DK: I think your brokers advice deserves a gold star and a steak dinner. Before the Y2K problem, before the New York Stock Exchange became a sewer for Wall Streets detritus, before high-frequency trading, before the cloud, when stockbrokers were called customers men, TECO Energy (TE-$17.37) was called Tampa Electric. It traded in the high $20s, and its earnings and dividends were attractive; TE was a classy growth and income stock. Then management blundered, and its barge business foundered. Its oil and gas business went to pot. Earnings crashed. The dividend was slashed. Capital spending nosedived. On a downward spiral, TE stumbled below $10 share in 2002. This was a poorly managed company. TE is a $3 billion-revenue electric and gas utility with 700,000 electric and 350,000 gas customers in vibrant, growing west central Florida, one of the fastestrecovering areas in the U.S. But TE is still a poorly run utility. Management sold its money-losing barge/ transportation business four years ago, ofoaded its Guatemalan generation business two years ago and may soon junk its spastic coal mining operations, which are burning in the red. During the past decade, revenues have trended lower, and earnings have been uncharacteristically volatile. The stock price has been a disappointment. Projections for 2014 and 2015 are dismal, and theres no likelihood of a dividend increase from the 88 cents TE has paid since 2011. Yes, TEs 88-cent dividend yields an attractive 5 percent, which is among the highest in the industry and a percentage point above the average for electric utilities. The dividend is safe, but considering past failures, I doubt current management is capable of growing the company. TE also needs a transfusion. However small, poorly run utilities are attractive candidates for larger utilities seeking to grow. Thirteen utility takeovers have been announced in the past dozen months, versus four utility takeovers for the previous dozen months. I suspect that a potential suitor would pay a 30 percent premium to the current market price, and this could happen in the near future. United Technologies (UTX-$106.17) is one of the 30 stocks that make up the Dow Jones industrial average. Its a Jim dandy diversied conglomerate with a strong cash ow and $62 billion in revenues, derived from ve business segments: 1) Pratt & Whitney $14.5 billion designs, manufactures and services commercial and military aircraft engines. 2) Otis Elevator Co. $12.5 billion is the worlds largest manufacturer of escalators and elevators. 3) UTC Building & Industrial Systems $17 billion includes Carrier, which manufactures heating and air conditioning systems. 4) Sikorsky $6 billion manufactures military and commercial helicopters. 5) UTC Aerospace Systems $13.5 billion produces aerospace and industrial products, including Goodrich, which was acquired in 2012. All ve of those segments are humming well; revenues should grow by 5 to 6 percent this year. Net prot margins should improve from 8.9 percent to 9.2 percent. Wall Street expects share earnings to rise to $6.86 from $6.21, with a 12-month price target of $130 to $135. The consensus for 2015-16 is even better, and if youre a dividend diva, youll be pleased with UTXs payout record, which has grown fourfold since 2003, from 57 cents to $2.36. UTXs excellent management team believes that it can continue to grow revenues, increase free cash ow, improve operating margins, grow net prot margins and regularly raise the dividend payout. Apparently, Louis Chenevert, who was appointed chairman and CEO several years ago and owns 565,100 shares, agrees. It also seems that Vanguard, BlackRock, Wellington Management, State Street, BNY Mellon, T. Rowe Price and J.P. Morgan, which together own more than 220 million shares, agree. Buy 100 shares of UTX; its a no-brainer. Email Malcolm Berko at dividend yield but a better stock Malcolm Berko NEW YORK (AP) Concerns over high stock prices and global politics continued to plague markets Monday as major stock indexes ended with slight losses in another day of choppy trading. Pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, a major world nancial center, added to the host of political concerns on investors minds. It could have been worse. The Dow Jones industrial average sank 178 points in the opening minutes, a sudden drop of 1 percent, but then it climbed back. You have a ton of risks that have brought back in the markets focus, said Brad McMillan, chief investment ofcer for Commonwealth Financial in Waltham, Mass. Theres just a heck of a lot of uncertainty right now. The Dow lost 41.93 points, or 0.2 percent, to 17,071.22. The Standard & Poors 500 index lost 5.05 points, or 0.3 percent, to 1,977.80. The Nasdaq composite slipped 6.34 points, or 0.1 percent, to 4,505.85. DreamWorks Animation, the studio behind Shrek and Madagascar, soared 26 percent following reports that Japans SoftBank Corp. is in talks to buy the company. DreamWorks gained $5.82 to $28.18. The market has turned choppy in recent weeks, ipping between solid gains and steep losses. Since hitting a record on Sept. 18, the S&P 500 has slipped 1.7 percent. Coming after a calm summer, the slide has set off a urry of worried calls to brokerages. John Canally, chief economic strategist at LPL Financial in Boston, said many investors think the market has gone too long without a major fall. I cant tell you how many calls were getting now asking, Is this it? Is this the big one? he said. One reason for the recent turbulence is that the stock market appears priced for perfection, McMillan said. Its an increasingly common saying among investors, and it means the S&P 500 is so high that corporate prots and the economy have to keep improving just to sustain current prices. Good news isnt enough.US stocks head lower, following drops overseas LOS ANGELES (AP) Banks are reaping bigger fees whenever customers overdraw their checking accounts or use ATMs that are not afliated with their lender, a new survey shows. The average fee for using an out-of-network ATM climbed 5 percent over the past year to a new high of $4.35 per transaction, according to a survey released Monday by Bankrate. com. Overdraft fees also surged, rising on average over the past 12 months to $32.74. Thats the 16th consecutive record high, the rm said. Checking account fees have been increasing as banks adjust to federal banking laws and regulations enacted after the 2008 nancial crisis. Among the changes: limits on when banks can charge overdraft fees on ATM and debit card transactions and a reduction in the fees that banks charge merchants for each customer who uses credit or debit cards for their purchases. Banks have responded by hiking overdraft and ATM fees, as well as increasing how much money customers must maintain in the bank to avoid checking account fees. I expect fees to continue increasing in years to come, but at a modest pace consistent with what we saw this year, just as was the case prior to the onset of these regulations, said Greg McBride, chief nancial analyst at Using an ATM thats not afliated with your bank will usually lead to two fees. One is charged by your bank; the other is charged by the owner of the ATM. Thats the fee thats risen most consistently and at a faster rate, McBride said.Survey: ATM, checking account overdraft fees surge rr' i,,,0 0

Its not because of who smokes pot and who doesnt. Federal surveys show that 10 to 12 percent of both races use marijuana at least once a month. What does differ is how pot marketplaces unfold in various neighborhoods and how police agencies respond. As a result, a moodaltering substance that many Floridians think should be legal gener ates criminals in one sector of the community while other people large ly skate free. The harm is far greater than the harm marijuana ever did because citizens view the justice system as unfair, said Broward County Public Defender Howard Finkelstein, who last month asked the U.S. Justice Department to investigate similar imbalances in Fort Lauderdale. You cannot let one group of people play then punish the other people. Racial disparities in pot possession arrests is not a new topic. But the disparities are particularly pronounced in Pinellas and Hillsborough counties, a Tampa Bay Times analysis found. Nationwide, black people were 3.7 times as likely to be arrested from 2001 to 2010, according to an American Civil Liberties Union report based on FBI crime statistics and census data. The 2013 dispar ity in Pinellas and Hillsborough was nearly double that, the Times analysis found. One reason is open air drug dealing, said St. Petersburg police Chief Tony Holloway. In poor, black neighborhoods, cars, bicycles or pedestrians approach houses or street corners, sellers hand out the goods and frustrated citizens complain. Harder drugs like cocaine are also being sold and violence can erupt. Police respond by putting extra resources into those neighborhoods. People want police action because you dont want to have to walk out of your house and walk through a bunch of drug dealers. Thats why we get arrested more than whites, because we do it out in the open, said Holloway, who is black. On Snell Isle, I guarantee you, you will not have white kids standing on the corner selling drugs. They will get paged and they will tell you where to meet someone. He may be selling drugs on Snell Isle, but he is doing it, I hate to say it, in a better way. Enforcement efforts should fall equally in all parts of town, said Kurt Donley, chairman of the St. Petersburg NAACPs criminal justice committee. If you hang out near a white, affluent high school and see two males in a car and pull it over, you are going to get plenty of drugs, said Donley, who is white. You have Eckerd College named by the Princeton Review as one of the top five pot-friendly colleges in the country. Nobody is going in there arresting wealthy white kids. If all you do is fish in a black pond, you are going to get black fish.It starts earlyMarijuana possession though sometimes resulting in no more than a ticket and fine can alter the course of a life. One joint can cost a person his drivers license. Three-quarters of an ounce constitutes a felony in Florida and can wipe out prospects for jobs, housing and higher education. Disproportionate arrests start early, Pinellas Public Defender Bob Dillinger said. Last year, Pinellas authorities arrested 117 black youths for misdemeanor drug possession, compared to 200 white youths. Census data show there are four to five times more white youths than black ones. Research has shown that a child who touches the detention center for even one night is impacted for the remainder of their lives, Dillinger said. We have awful racial disparity. The numbers speak for themselves. The statistics are worth discussing, said Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, but he sees no evidence that law enforcement officers arrest people based on race. Possession arrests often stem from more serious crimes, like robbery, car theft or DUI, Gualtieri noted. Police search a suspect and out pops a joint or a bag. No one is being targeted, he said. I think the real test is how many people are booked and arrested when there is no other charge except marijuana, Gualtieri said. It makes a huge, huge difference, and its what I would want to know from a disparity standpoint. To answer that question, the Times analyzed 2013 data from the St. Petersburg Police Department. A little over half of adult misdemeanor pot possession arrests were accompanied by other charges. But the rest were for possession only. In those cases, the black-white dispar ity still hovered above a ratio of 6-to-1.Black people get lions share of pot arrests | HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATECruise ship passenger dies in fall at Miami portMIAMI (AP) A 20-year-old man has died after falling from a mast on a Carnival Cruise Lines ship docked at Miamis port. Carnival ofcials said Monday that the man went into a restricted area aboard the Carnival Ecstasy and climbed a forward mast, then fell onto the deck below. He was later pronounced dead at a hospital. Miami-Dade County police say the mans fall was the equivalent of two decks of the ship.Florida education board wants hike for schoolsTAMPA (AP) The state board that oversees Floridas schools wants a boost in school funding for 2015. The State Board of Education voted Monday to ask state legislators to approve a $19.6 billion budget for Floridas public schools. The increase includes a $232 increase in per-pupil funding to match what Gov. Rick Scott has already proposed on the campaign trail. The budget proposal also mirrors Scotts push to double the amount spent on digital learning initiatives. State legislators will consider the request during the 2015 session that starts next spring. The boost in school funding, however, would require more money coming from local property taxes in order to pay for the request.PODS wins $62M in lawsuit TAMPA (Tampa Bay Times) Pods arent going the way of the escalator, aspirin and linoleum for now at least. Clearwater-based PODS moving and storage on Thursday was awarded $62 million in damages in a lawsuit against U-Haul over its use of the word pods. The ruling marked a win over genericide the death of a trademarked word. PODS remains a legally protected trademark brand, even if people use the word frequently to describe a container used for moving. PODS had a resounding victory on all the issues in this case, said Ronald Christaldi, an attorney for Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick in Tampa, who was not involved with the case but has experience in trademark lawsuits. The jury found PODS was not a generic term.PEOPLExpress halts flightsWEST PALM BEACH (AP) An upstart airline is halting service less than two months after getting off the ground. Virginia-based PEOPLExpress had been y ing from West Palm Beach, but the low-cost airline says its suspending service until mid-October due to maintenance issues, and aircraft and crew availability. The Palm Beach Post reports PEOPLExpress will issue refunds for passengers ticketed to y through Oct. 15. It plans to relaunch on or around Oct. 16.

State, Page 4 INDEX | Lottery 2 | Preps 2 | Community calendar 2 | Recreational sports 2 | Baseball 2-3 | Auto racing 4 | Golf 4 | College football 4 | Scoreboard 5 | NFL 6 KANSAS CITY, Mo. Kansas City Royals fans, their team and the city itself are getting a crash course on what playoff baseball is all about. The wild card game today against Oakland marks the return of postseason baseball to Kansas City for the rst time since 1985, when the Royals won the World Series against St. Louis. Many young Kansas Citians have no memories of that magical year, or the I-70 series, relying on YouTube searches or their parents nostalgic retellings of umpire Don Denkingers blown call in Game 6 that sent the Royals toward their title. For a city that typically turns Chiefs red with the start of the NFL season, football for now can wait. After all, Kansas City baseball fans have waited long enough. STARVED FOR A WINNER Longtime Royals fans had high hopes this season, after the team nished 2013 with a winning record but fell short of the playoffs. But with more 100-loss seasons (four) than winning seasons (three) since 1993, fans were bracing themselves for more heartbreak. Not a talk-show caller named Shannon.

Page 3 PORT CHARLOTTE Willy Adames sat in a sun-lit room at Charlotte Sports Complex on a recent late afternoon and talked about his whirlwind year. He spoke, in English, about the adjustments he had to make in a new organization and expectations he has for himself next year. Considering all he has been through, it was a remarkable conversation. In the past seven months, the Dominicanborn shortstop came to America for the rst time, learned every bit of English he knows now, served as part of the package Detroit sent to Tampa Bay in exchange for ace David Price and played at the Class-A level for two organizations. All at 18 years of age. Being a part of a trade for a franchise player such as Price can put a lot of pressure on a young prospect like Adames. But after learning a new country, a new language and two new teams, those expectations likely will not faze the Rays newly anointed No. 2 prospect. I just play, Adames said. Im happy no matter what happens, as long as I keep playing baseball hard. If there was any added pressure on him this season, Adames sure didnt show it on the eld. The Elite prospect faces Rays future MINOR LEAGUES: Willie AdamesAfter whirlwind year, Adames tries to catch his breathBy JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITER ADAMES | 2 Mantas begin a testy weekBy GARY BROWNSUN CORRESPONDENTENGLEWOOD It may be too early for midterms in the classroom, but the Lemon Bay High School volleyball team is facing a week of tests on the court. The Mantas have no time to recover from a 3-1 loss to Manatee HEAT on Monday night, since they face District 5A-11 foe DeSoto County at home today. The last test comes in the form of road game at Charlotte, another non-district opponent. If we can win (tonight), weve got a good chance of gaining the second seed (for the district tournament, Lemon Bay coach Stacy Dewolfe said. For the Manta Rays to earn that seeding and do something with it in the playoffs, they will need to continue improving. Dewolfe believes teams such as Manatee HEAT (11-1), a non-aligned team comprised primarily of home-schooled students, can help her team do that. Lemon Bay (7-9, 2-2 in district) stayed close in the first two games before falling, 25-22, 25-20, 22-25, 25-10. We played pretty good defensively, Dewolfe said.

North Port senior Rodrigo Amaya earned the medalist honor with an even-par 36, but Port Charlotte won the match, 164-177, at the Port Charlotte Golf Club. Tate Smith, who was playing with a new set of irons and wedges, paced the Pirates by finishing a stroke behind Amaya, 1-over-par 37. His round included a birdie on the first hole. I struggled to make putts, Smith said. I had five birdie putts that lipped out and that was aggravating, Smith said. It was my first match playing with my new clubs, so it was different getting used to them. Smiths consistency was mirrored by his teammates. Port Charlotte (11-2) counted a 40 from Zac Specht and 43s from Logan Smith and Jacob Goldman, who was fresh off a hole-in-one at the county championship on Friday.

Page 2 SP The Sun /Tuesday, September 30, 2014 Veronica Hernandez has carried her love of fencing to China. Hernandez, whose family lives in Venice, is a sophomore at NYU Shanghai, majoring in economics with a minor in art history. The 18-year-old fenced foil for years before departing for school. She was afliated with Sarasota and North Port fencing clubs, according to the Fencing Results and Events Database. She and a friend started the NYU Shanghai fencing team last semester and have partnered with a local Shanghai fencing club. Hernandez wrote in an email that the club has eight people, though a lineup for this semester hasnt been nalized so more people may join. We havent started competing yet, mostly because most of the people in our club are beginners, so we are focusing on training and practicing, she said. We plan on attending tournaments, but we dont have specic ones in mind yet. On a good week, when I dont have too much homework, I practice four times a week, she said. Last year Hernandez completed a half marathon during the Shanghai International Marathon events. She trained two-and-a-half months. I had literally never run a road race before, and the most I had ever run at that time was 2 miles, she said. But I signed up anyway. I dont know what I was thinking. Hernandez wanted to run the full Shanghai marathon this year, but event regulations stipulate that competitors be 20 years of age. Instead, she plans to run either the Great Wall Marathon or half marathon at the end of the 2015 school year.Know someone who is doing some thing notable in a recreational sports?

I feel good. I feel comfortable, Adames said. Sometimes I had to make adjustments, but I felt good. The Dominican shortstop represents part of the Rays future. While lefthander Drew Smyly (3-1, 1.70 ERA for the Rays) and inelder Nick Franklin (7 for 27, one home run, four RBIs) represent the major-league-ready side of the haul the Rays received, Adames gives the organizations farm system a boost. Adames has been part of the Rays system since the start of August, so this months Instructional League marks the rst time many in the organization are seeing him. One, Im really pleased with the way he speaks English. A pleasant, pleasant surprise. Two, Im really pleased to see how well he takes instruction, Rays director of minor league operations Mitch Lukevics said. Not all players take instruction well, but Willy does. And I think at 18 years old, those are wonderful traits, and we inherited this. And were happy to inherit this. Hes willing to learn, and when a player is willing to learn and willing to work because he likes to work and likes to play, he has a chance to be a very good big league player. Now 19, Adames admits it has been a trying year. He was nervous when he left home seven months ago: When you come here and leave your family, you miss them a lot. The food is not the same. You dont know anybody. Everything is different. And the trade that sent him to the Rays caught him off guard: I was in shock. I started crying.. But hes settling in nicely. Its a good thing, too, because he could be spending a lot of time in Port Charlotte next year. Lukevics thinks its safe to say that Adames will spend a good portion of his 2015 season as a member of the Charlotte Stone Crabs. Thats the saying; its baseball, Adames said. I have to make a new family here with my new teammates.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or jvitale@sun-herald. com.ADAMESFROM PAGE 1PHOTO BY EMILY JONES/MILB.COMWilly Adames, acquired by Tampa Bay from Detroit in the David Price deal, was batting .269 with six homers and 50 RBIs at Class A West Michigan.

Amayas path to the best round of the Bobcats season was more up and down. He bogeyed two of the first three holes before birdies at holes 5, 6 and 8. Amaya bogeyed the final hole after that delay. I havent been able to hit many balls because of the weather, but I finally got it together, Amaya said. The last hole was sloppy. I had to get my mind back into it. North Port (4-3), which was playing without Austin Smith, received another solid round from freshman Zack Kubic (43) as the Bobcats continue to lower their scores. Im impressed with what theyre doing. We started in the 190s and have shaved off about 20 strokes, said North Port coach Steve Posilovich.

The board voted to require soft helmets for girls lacrosse starting this spring, despite a presentations U.S. Lacrosse against the use of helmets in the sport. The National Federation of State High School Associations, which the FHSAA is a part of, spoke out against helmets as part of the presentation. No soft helmet exists for girls lacrosse that has been approved by U.S. Lacrosse and the American Society for Testing and Materials, but according to the FHSAA Twitter account, the organization will apply ASTM performance standard when available. I dont really under stand how quickly they can turn around the manufacturing testing approval and delivery of this item for 2015, Port Charlotte High School coach Joanne Parker said.

The Sun /Tuesday, September 30, 2014 SP Page 3 keeping her excitement in check in June after the Royals moved into the AL Central lead for the rst time. The shows hosts were, shall we say, less than comforting. She called into the postgame show and was crying, said Danny Parkins, who was co-hosting the 610 Sports show with Josh Vernier. She said, Vern, this means everything to me. We just couldnt stop laughing about the absurdity of it: a half-game up in June, with all of July, August and September to go. Ninety games left in the season and they had won exactly nothing. It spoke to how long this city has been starved for a baseball winner. UNCHARTED TERRITORY A popular theme in pro sports is to act like youve been there. But for the Royals front ofce, its not that easy when many key staffers were still in grade school the last time the team made the playoffs. After season ticket-holders got rst dibs for a home wild-card game and every potential home series after that, tickets went on sale to the rest of the public Sept. 18. Only minutes after online sales began, transactions ground to a halt for some who werent sure if their request had gone through or if they were being billed for something they wouldnt get. The rst 10 minutes had overwhelmed the computer systems ability to meet demand, team spokesman Toby Cook said. Sales started owing again within half an hour, but Royals ofcials spent the weekend reaching out to fans whose ticket problems werent resolved. Were all doing this for the rst time with this level of intensity, Cook said. ANYTHING FOR SALVYS SIGNATURE Half an hour after catcher Salvador Perez sat down for an hour-long autograph session at an Independence, Missouri, sporting apparel store, a line of fans was still wrapped around the stores interior, out the door and down the sidewalk. Among those waiting for Perez autograph was Lorrie Arnold, a 52-yearold Oak Grove, Missouri, resident whos been ghting some form of cancer since being diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma at age 22. Her 77-year-old father brought her more than two hours early to make sure he could take pictures of his daughter with her favorite player. This is awesome, Arnold said. Im going through chemo right now and its very hard for me to get to the games. MOVE OVER, CHIEFS On a gorgeous Saturday after the Royals clinched a wild-card spot, blueclad fans invaded the annual medieval-themed Renaissance Festival in nearby Bonner Springs, Kansas. Chiefs red was tough to nd, even though the football team was on the national stage Monday night against the New England Patriots. I say no Red Friday until baseballs over, said Mike Novak, 51, of Blue Springs, Missouri, refer ring to the area tradition of wearing red on Fridays before Chiefs games. Novak got a large henna tattoo of Royals across his forearm. Its supposed to last two weeks, which would see him through the divisional championship series. Kansas City needs this, he said.ROYALSFROM PAGE 1 AP FILE PHOTOA pair of young Kansas City Royals fans show their royal blue and gold colors while waiting for the start of a game on July 20 against the Seattle Mariners in Kansas City, Mo. | PLAYOFF CAPSULES AL WILD CARDOAKLAND AT KANSAS CITYSCHEDULE (TV): Today, at Kansas City, 8:07 p.m. (TBS). SEASON SERIES: Royals won 5-2. STARTING PITCHER: Athletics: LH Jon Lester (16-11, 2.46, 220 Ks with Oakland and Boston). Royals: RH James Shields (14-8, 3.21). MATCHUPS: Former AL West rivals met once before in the postseason with Oakland sweeping Kansas City in three games in the division round of the strike-short ened 1981 season. Royals won five of the seven meetings this season, taking two of three in Oakland and three of four in Kansas City in August. Shields allowed five runs in 14 innings in two starts vs. Oakland, getting a win and a no-decision. He is 6-4 with a 3.82 ERA in 15 career starts vs. the As. Adam Dunn has most experience against Shields, going 7 for 35 with 1 HR and 16 Ks. Josh Reddick has three HRs in 22 ABs vs. Shields. Lester is 9-3 with a 1.84 ERA in 13 starts vs. Royals, winning all three this season. BIG PICTURE: Athletics: The As made the playoffs for the third straight year, getting in as the second wild-card team on the final day of the season after winning the AL West the previous two seasons. Oakland lost in the division series to Detroit the past two years and has lost seven of eight playoff series since 2000. The As limped to the finish, losing 20 of their final 30 games. Their .433 winning percentage after the All-Star break was the lowest ever for a playoff team. Royals: The Royals are back in the postseason for the first time since 1985, when most of their roster had not even been born. They beat St. Louis in an I-70 World Series that season. Kansas City relies on pitching and defense. The team had a 3.50 ERA, led by a bullpen that has been arguably baseballs best the past two seasons. Royals finished middle-of-the-pack in most offensive categories, including 15th in runs scored. But they had the fourth-best team batting average in the big leagues at .262.NL WILD CARDSAN FRANCISCO AT PITTSBURGHSCHEDULE (TV): Wednesday, at Pittsburgh, 8:07 p.m. (ESPN) SEASON SERIES: Pirates won 4-2 STARTING PITCHERS: Giants: LH Madison Bumgarner (18-10, 2.98 ERA, 219 Ks). Pirates: RH Edinson Volquez (13-7, 3.04 ERA). MATCHUPS: These teams met once before in the postseason, with the Pirates winning the 1971 NLCS 3-1 on the way to a World Series title. Pirates won two of three at home against Giants in May and two of three in San Francisco in July. Josh Harrison hit a two-run homer in a 5-0 win over Bumgarner on July 28. Harrison is 4 for 5 in his career vs. Bumgarner and hit three HRs vs. the Giants this season. Bumgarner is 1-3 with a 3.24 ERA in four starts vs. the Pirates, with the Giants scoring just one run in those games. Bumgarner was tied for the major league lead with 11 road wins this season and had a 2.22 ERA in 18 road starts. BIG PICTURE: Giants: After winning the World Series in 2010 and 2012, the Giants (88-74) are hoping to keep up their every-other-year pattern. San Francisco missed the playoffs after each of those championships but is back this season as the second NL wild-card team. After relying on stellar pitching during those two title runs, the Giants are more balanced this year, finishing fifth in the NL in runs and seventh in ERA. The Giants went 65-18 when scoring first and 22-56 when allowing the first run. Pirates: McCutchen, the reigning NL MVP, put together another stellar season, but the Pirates (88-74) took off once Harrison started playing regularly. They went 77-66 with the former utility player in the lineup. He finished second to Justin Morneau in the NL batting race. Harrison, who made the All-Star team, tied McCutchen with a team-high 38 doubles. Volquez did not face San Francisco this year. He is 2-2 with a 5.72 ERA in 11 career starts against the Giants. ... The Pirates outscored the Giants 29-23 during the season series. Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS Minnesota red manager Ron Gardenhire on Monday, saying it was time for a new voice after his 13-season tenure concluded with at least 92 losses in each of the last four years. The move was made with one season left on Gardenhires contract, ending the second-longest active tenure in the major leagues behind Mike Scioscia of the Angels. The reason for this change, I think its safe to say, the last couple years we have not won enough games, Twins general manager Terry Ryan said. Thats what it comes down to. Its nothing more, nothing less than that. Gardenhire played an integral role in the franchises renaissance, guiding the Twins to their rst of six American League Central division titles in 2002 in his rst year on the job. But Gardenhires teams only advanced past the rst round once, and his postseason record was 6-21 with the last win coming in 2004. The Twins have long been the model of stability in not only baseball but major professional sports, with only two managers over the last 28 years and two general managers over the last 20 seasons. But all the losing of late became too much to overcome. Over the last four years, the Twins went 78-148 from Aug. 1 on for an abysmal .345 winning percentage. The Twins also announced former manager Tom Kelly is recovering after suffering what the team calls a minor stroke last week. Kelly told Ryan that he was briey hospitalized after the stroke, but doctors have told him that he should make a full recovery. Astros hire manager: A.J. Hinch was hired as Houstons manager, and general manager Jeff Luhnow is confident hell be the man to return Houston to success. Hinch takes over for Bo Porter, who was fired on Sept. 1 in his second year and replaced on an interim baseis by Tom Lawless. The Astros finished 70-92 and fourth in the AL West. Houston has been in a long rebuilding process and hasnt finished above .500 since going 86-75 in 2008. Hinch, a former catcher, managed the Diamondbacks for partial seasons from 2009-10. They went 89-123. Seventh umpire added to playoff crews: In a nod to new technology, Major League Baseball will tweak its postseason tradition and add a seventh umpire to rotate between the replay booth and field for the World Series and league championship series. The changes will take effect for best-of-seven matchups this October, a person familiar with the format told The Associated Press. The extra umpire will work home plate in Game 1, go to right field in Game 2, then shift to the replay booth in New York for the rest of the series. Another ump will handle replay the first two games before working the remaining games on the field. Davis, West head umpire crews: Umpires Gerry Davis and Joe West will be the crew chiefs for the wild-card games this week. Davis has worked 122 postseason games, more than any other umpire. Hell handle the Oakland at Kansas City game tonight, along with James Hoye, Dan Iassogna, Bill Miller, Todd Tichenor and Bill Welke. West tops all active umpires with 37 years in the majors. Hell work San Francisco at Pittsburgh on Wednesday night with Doug Eddings, Paul Emmel, Andy Fletcher, Brian Gorman and Mark Wegner. Around the majors: Seattle activated Jesus Montero off the suspended list and designated outfielder Corey Hart for assignment. Montero was placed on the suspended list Sept. 1 after a heated confrontation with cross-checker Butch Baccala in the stands at a minor league game in Boise, Idaho. Montero was on a rehab assignment. Major League Baseball attendance dipped slightly for the second straight season. The 30 teams drew 73,739,622 for an average of 30,458, the commissioners office said Monday, a 0.2 percent drop from last years average of 30,515.Twins fire manager after 13 seasonsBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MLB NOTEBOOKGardenhire out; Astros name Hinch new manager MLB: PlayosSeason of redemptionWASHINGTON Three years ago, Drew Storen was the condent, young closer for the Washington Nationals, a rst-round draft pick who saved 43 games. Two years ago, he needed elbow surgery in April, worked his way back into the last-guyon-the-mound job by the time the playoffs rolled around, then allowed a ninth-inning lead to become a 9-7 loss in Game 5 of the NL division series against St. Louis, ending Washingtons season in excruciating fashion. Last year, he lost his closer status to surprise free-agent signing Rafael Soriano, then was briey demoted to the minors. And this year? Storen was NL East champion Washingtons primary seventh-inning reliever until early September, when he replaced the struggling Soriano as the closer and thrived. This year, then, is Storens second chance: He and other major leaguers Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers, Adam Jones of the Orioles, among them are hoping to fare better than in past postseasons. I dont look at it as this big, emotional scar or anything. Its baseball, you know? Youre going to have bad outings. Its a matter of moving on, Storen said, standing in front of his Nationals Park locker, where he sat silently and despondently on that unforgettable night in October 2012. Im a different per son, Storen said. And Im a different pitcher. That last part is obvious. He went back to his leg kick. Hes quicker to the plate. He added a changeup that tricks lefties. His fastball goes where he wants. Just a testament to his fortitude, reliever Craig Stammen said. Sometimes a little humble pie doesnt hurt any of us. He took his piece, and he worked his tail off to get back. Storen has converted 10 of 10 save chances since Sept. 7, throwing 913 innings, with zero runs, six singles, 10 strikeouts, zero walks. At home, where Washington will be for Fridays Game 1 of an NLDS against Pittsburgh or San Francisco, fans sing Droooooo! when the 27-year-old righty takes the mound. When he signs autographs, they tell him how happy they are to see him succeeding. Others eyeing a playoff turnaround include Kershaw, who just won his fourth consecutive ERA title but is 0-3 with a 7.23 ERA in three trips to the NLCS; Jones, 2 for 26 in his one postseason, 2012; and Storens teammate Bryce Harper, 3 for 23 against St. Louis two years ago. Even two-time AL MVP Miguel Cabrera hasnt quite lived up to his own lofty standards. They have company: Several of baseballs greatest players took their lumps on the sports biggest stages. Ted Williams hit only singles while batting .200 in Bostons 1946 World Series loss to the Cardinals his lone postseason. Barry Bonds was known for October slumps until his remarkable 2002 for the Giants, which ended with a World Series loss to the Angels. Postseasons provide small sample sizes against tough competition; hardly seems fair to judge by those performances. For now, much of how Storen is perceived as a player is dened by that Game 5 ninth inning. But as general manager Mike Rizzo put it: He was shaken much less than everybody else. A day earlier, Washington won Game 4 on Jayson Werths walk-off homer. In the decider, Washington led 6-0 in the third, then 7-5 with two outs and one on in the ninth. For ve pitches, Storen was one strike away from the save. On all ve, the batters Yadier Molina and David Freese took a ball. Both walked, setting up two-run singles by Daniel Descalso and Pete Kozma. Devastating, Nationals owner Mark Lerner said. There were a couple of cheap little hits there. And Drew had, we thought, some strikes that were called balls. But, hey, its water under the bridge. And hes back where he should be. Im delighted for Drews success. Hes a ne young man.By HOWARD FENDRICHASSOCIATED PRESSStoren, others want to make most of their 2nd chance AP FILE PHOTODrew Storen, answering questions after Game 5 of the 2012 National League division series against the St. Louis Cardinals, nds himself in the spotlight again for the Washington Nationals.


Page 4 SP The Sun /Tuesday, September 30, 2014 Azinger plan on players mindsBy TOM LAMARRETHE SPORTS XCHANGEThe Europeans were only starting to celebrate their victory in the 40th Ryder Cup at Gleneagles when Jason Dufner was suggesting what the United States might do to turn the tide of eight Euro victories in the last 10 matches. Only minutes after the Europeans 1612-1112 victory was complete, Dufner, who was unable to play in Scotland because of a neck injury, took to Twitter and wrote: @PaulAzinger #2016. Azinger was the U.S. captain the last time the Americans won the Ryder Cup, a 1612-1112 victory at Valhalla. Dufner did not play on that U.S. team, but somebody who did also expressed his opinion that Azingers method is what the United States needs to turn things around in two years at Hazeltine. Unfortunately, we have strayed from a winning formula in 2008 for the last three Ryder Cups, and we need to consider maybe getting back to that formula that helped us play our best, Phil Mickelson said at Sundays postmortem press confer ence, while sitting only a few seats from captain Tom Watson. I dont know why we dont go back. What Zinger did was great. Azinger used what he called a pod system, in which he put his 12 players into three groups of four and kept them together through practice rounds and into the matches. Before the U.S. team went to Scotland, he offered his help to Watson, captain of the last American victory on European soil in 1993 at the Belfry in England. Billy Horschel, who did not make the U.S. team despite claiming the FedEx Cup with two victories and a runner-up finish in the last three events of the PGA Tour playoffs, also offered suggestions on Twitter: #rydercup2016 Fred Couples or Paul Azinger. Couples has captained the U.S. to three consecutive victories over the International team in the Presidents Cup. GOLF: Ryder Cup KANNAPOLIS, N.C. A subdued Tony Stewart said Monday he never thought about giving up driving race cars after a car he was driving struck and killed sprint car driver Kevin Ward Jr. during a dirt track race in New York. But he said he still thinks constantly about what he called a percent accident. I think about it every day, he said, and I wish I could say it was once a day but its not. It will never go away. Its always going to be a part of my life the rest of my life. Stewart answered questions for 40 minutes from reporters at his race shop in Kannapolis on Monday the rst time he has done that in a news conference forum since Wards death. The news conference began, however, with the announcement that Stewart would not answer questions about exactly what happened during the accident itself. Last week an upstate New York grand jury declined to indict Stewart in Ward Jr.s death. Ward, 20, had climbed from his car to confront Stewart and died of blunt force trauma after Stewarts car hit him with its right rear tire on Aug. 9 and sent Ward hurtling through the air. Ward was under the inuence of marijuana the night of the accident, according to authorities. Stewart said he had not spoken to the Ward family but that he wanted to be available to them. Stewart said he didnt have to talk to Wards family, however, to have closure. Although the three-time NASCAR champion will not face criminal charges, a civil lawsuit is still possible. Stewart, who said he didnt know Ward but had read a lot about him since the wreck, said he remained in seclusion for the days immediately following the incident. I didnt want to talk to anybody, didnt want to see anybody, he said. He has sought professional help to cope with his emotions following the accident and said he has often had an awkward feeling when appearing in public, since he knows some people still blame him for Wards death. Stewart said he did not know if he would resume driving at the lower levels of racing he often competed in those races just for fun although he left no doubt that he would continue to drive in NASCARs top series. Said Stewart: This is what Ive done for 36 years I love driving race cars.Fatal crash shadows StewartBy SCOTT FOWLERTHE CHARLOTTE OBSERVER AUTO RACING: Tony StewartNever thought about quitting after deadly incident AP PHOTO/EMPIRE SUPER SPRINTS, INC.Kevin Ward Jr. at Merrittville Speedway in Thorold, Canada, in June. | QUICK HITSPRO LEAGUES FILE TO STOP NEW JERSEY SPORTS BETTINGNEWARK, N.J. (AP) Four major professional sports leagues and the NCAA led a court challenge to the states latest attempt to offer legal sports gambling on Monday, calling the effort astounding, specious and a blatant violation of an earlier court order. The ling came three weeks after Republican Gov. Chris Christie issued a directive that would allow casinos and racetracks to offer sports wagering as long as it wasnt state-regulated, an attempt to avoid conicting with a 1992 federal law. Defendants latest ar guments are nothing more than a blatant attempt to circumvent this Courts injunction and the federal law that it prohibits defendants from violating, the leagues wrote. U.S. District Judge Michael Shipp, whose injunction sided with the leagues in upholding the federal ban last year, is expected to rule in Trenton by next week. In the meantime, casinos and racetracks remain in limbo as they await a resolution. Monmouth Park ofcials have said they want to offer sports betting as soon as possible and have been making preparations for the last year.BASKETBALLLeBron: No decision on 2016 Olympics: LeBron James doesnt know whether hell take another shot at Olympic gold.

I havent even thought about it too much. Obviously I know whats going on and whats happening. I havent decided. The Orlando Magic enter the third year of their rebuilding process following one of their biggest offseason roster overhauls in recent memory. Only six of the 19 players that will be on the floor when Orlando opens camp today were on the roster at the start of last season. Taking their place is a pair of top 10 draft picks in Aaron Gordon and Elfrid Payton, along with veteran offseason acquisitions Channing Frye, Ben Gordon, Willie Green and Luke Ridnour. Its a mix of that on paper should mean a few more wins for a team that has won just 20 and 23 games in the first two years of its rebuilding process.SOFTBALLCause of truck-bus crash still unknown: The softball coach who was driving a team bus smashed into by an errant truck did everything he could to save four players who died in the accident, a relative said, even as investigators tried to solve the mystery of why the truck suddenly veered into oncoming traffic. The driver of the trailer, 53-year-old Russell Staley of Saginaw, Texas, was headed north on Interstate 35 in Oklahoma Friday night when his 18-wheel tractor-trailer veered into a median and into the southbound lanes. It crashed into a bus carrying 15 softball players from North Central Texas College.SOCCERKaka 1st to top $7 million in MLS earnings: Kaka is Major League Soccers highest-paid player. The Brazilian attacker is earning a base salary of $6.6 million from Orlando City, according to figures released by the MLS Players Union.

Orlando starts play next season, along with New York City FC, and Kaka is on loan to Sao Paulo in Brazil.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL NOTEBOOKFSU denies faking injuriesFlorida State coach Jimbo Fisher red back at North Carolina State coach Dave Doeren, who accused Florida State of faking injuries in Saturdays game in Raleigh, N.C. The tempo we had (in the rst quarter) was working until all the crazy fall down things were going on and the clock kept stopping, Doeren said, according to the Rocky Mountain Telegram. You know the refs cant do anything about that, but its hor rible the way the tempo gets slow downed by these injuries. We went fast in the rst-quarter, I guess there were no fake injuries. On Monday, Fisher responded by saying, according to the Orlando Sentinel, I accuse him of not knowing what hes talking about. We did not fake injuries, no one fakes injuries. Well coach Florida State, he can coach North Carolina State. Florida State won, 56-41. NCAA, Big 12 deny transfers appeal: The NCAA and Big 12 Conference have both denied Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfields appeal for immediate eligibility, the Daily Oklahoman reported. Mayfield was the Big 12 offensive freshman of the year last season when he played in eight games as a walk-on for Texas Tech. Despite his success on the field, Red Raiders coach Kliff Kingsbury said Mayfield would not be granted a scholarship. Mayfield decided to transfer to Oklahoma and was given immediate eligibility. But Texas Tech blocked Mayfields transfer. Kingsbury had said the transfer was being contested because it is taking place within the conference. Big 12 transfer rules for players moving from one Big 12 school to the other actually means Mayfield will have one less year of eligibility. LSU to start freshman QB: LSU freshman quarterback Brandon Harris will make his first college start in Saturdays road game against No. 5 Auburn. It wasnt a difficult decision, coach Les Miles said. Harris had been battling sophomore Anthony Jennings for the job and Harris performance against New Mexico State provided evidence that Harris should start. Harris has completed 73.3 percent of his passes for 394 yards and six touchdowns with one interception. He played well coming off the bench in the final four minutes of a 34-29 loss to Mississippi State throwing for 140 yards and two touchdowns.BY THE SPORTS XCHANGE DEMON DEACONS AT SEMINOLESWHO: Wake Forest (2-3, 0-1) at Florida State (4-0, 2-0) WHEN: Saturday, 3:30 p.m. WHERE: Doak-Campbell Stadium, Tallahassee TV: ESPN3 RADIO: 820 AM, 1040 AMPHOTO BY ROB KINNAN/USA TODAY SPORTS Jameis Winston reacts to a delay of game call during Saturdays game against North Carolina State. COLLEGE FOOTBALL: MichiganHoke: QB did not suffer concussionANN ARBOR, Mich. Michigan coach Brady Hoke, still facing questions and criticism for his handling of Shane Morris health, said Monday that the sophomore quarter back sustained a high-an kle sprain in Saturdays loss to Minnesota on Saturday. Furthermore, Hoke maintained that Morris did not sustain a concussion, and that if he had suffered any kind of traumatic injury, he would err on the side of caution. I would never put a kid in that situation, Hoke said. Never have and never will. When asked if a concussion has been ruled out, Hoke said a statement from Michigans medical department regarding Morris health would be released. Morris was hit by Minnesotas Thieren Cockran and appeared wobbly as he came up from the ground and had to be steadied by teammate Ben Braden. Morris was replaced by Devin Gardner on the next snap and then returned after Gardner lost his helmet before he was removed from the game. I can tell you, being on the sideline, my perspective and what I know, Hoke said. During the course of the game, Devins helmet comes off. My intention is to go out and get the referees attention and I want to buy him back with a timeout. Ive talked to the Big Ten and to (Big Ten director of ofciating) Bill Carollo about this and was told I couldnt buy it back. The linesman comes up and I say, I want to buy it back. The referee says you cant do that. The miscommunication, whatever, the head linesman says yes you can. By that time, I know Shanes on the eld, taking one more snap and handing the ball off. Devin gets his helmet back on. Thats how that sequence went. What I can tell you is that we would never, ever, put a guy on the eld when theres a possibility of head trauma. We dont do that. Guys play beat up every day. If theyre not beat up a little bit, if theyre never 100 percent, then theyre not doing much. The play and the coaching staffs handling of Morris following Cockrans hit has received national attention and national scrutiny. Hoke said after the loss that he did not know whether or not Morris had a concussion, but Hoke said it was his decision to leave Morris in after he was hit by Cockran. Furthermore, Hoke said Monday that he did not see the hit on Morris when it happened, and said Morris stumbling after the play was related to the ankle injury. In a statement released Sunday night, Hoke defended the programs handling of Morris and said that Morris aggravated an injury to his leg, that he sustained earlier in the 30-14 loss to the Golden Gophers, and that athletic trainers and team physicians evaluated Morris. Hoke said after the loss that he did not know whether or not Morris had a concussion, but Hoke said it was his decision to leave Morris in after he was hit by Cockran. I dont know if he might have had a concussion or not, Hoke said Saturday. I dont know that. Shanes a pretty competitive tough kid. Shane wanted to be the quarterback. So believe me, if he didnt want to be, he would have come to the sideline or stayed down.BY THE SPORTS XCHANGEPHOTO BY RICK OSENTOSKI/USA TODAY SPORTSMichigan quarterback Shane Morris passes during the rst half against Minnesota on Saturday.

Page 6 SP The Sun /Tuesday, September 30, 2014 WEEKEND WATCHIn case you missed it, heres a look back at Week 4 in the NFL: SECOND-GUESSING NFL head coaches make all sorts of key calls, and many are subject to questioning and there was plenty of talk-radio fodder on this Sunday. New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton opted to have his punter yes, his punter try to throw a pass, instead of a guy by the name of Drew Brees. Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly decided to let Nick Foles throw a pair of passes from inside the 2-yard line, instead of giving the football to LeSean McCoy on the ground. New York Jets coach Rex Ryan declared hes sticking with Geno Smith, even though the quarterback has seven turnovers in four games. WHAT WAS HE THINKING? Perhaps the most shocking choice was Sean Paytons fake punt, although this is a coach who used an onside kick right after halftime en route to a Super Bowl victory. With about 7 minutes left, and New Orleans facing fourth-and-9 from its 41 while trailing Dallas by two touchdowns, the Saints sent out the punting unit. Except instead of kicking, the Saints tried some trickery, with punter Thomas Morstead hoping to pass before winding up tackled for a 2-yard loss. My question is: Games on the line, who do you want throwing that pass? You want Drew Brees? (Or) you want Thomas Morstead? former NFL receiver Cris Collinsworth said on NBCs broadcast of the Dallas Cowboys 38-17 victory Sunday night. TWO UNBEATENS With Philadelphias 26-21 loss at San Francisco after Kellys overthinking with his playcalling, only two unbeaten teams are left, Cincinnati and Arizona. Both are 3-0 because they had byes this week, and both face what could be tough road tests against marquee quarterbacks next week. The Bengals are at Tom Bradys Patriots, while the Cardinals are at Peyton Mannings Broncos. TOMLINS ANGRY Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin called it inexcusable, unacceptable and ridiculous that his team would draw 13 penalties for 125 yards in a 27-24 loss to the previously winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Flags included six personal fouls. PLAY OF THE DAY So maybe the Carolina Panthers should have kept Steve Smith? The 35-year-old Ravens receiver made his former team look foolish for letting him go this offseason, making seven catches for 139 yards and a pair of scores in the Baltimore Ravens 38-10 victory over Carolina including a 61-yard TD when he grabbed the ball in stride after it deflected off the right hand of a teammate. MOST VALUABLE MURRAY DeMarco Murray ran for 149 yards and two TDs to join Emmitt Smith as the only Dallas running backs with 100 yards in the first four games of a season. And Murray didnt fumble in the first quarter for the first time this season. GENOS MOUTH Jets QB Smith had an interception and a fumble on consecutive possessions in a 24-17 loss to the Detroit Lions and he also lobbed an expletive toward a spectator after a home game during which there were chants of We want Vick! But Ryan isnt switching to Michael Vick. Even if New York is 1-3, with a rough one coming up against San Diego. HIGH WATT-AGE J.J. Watt returned an interception 80 yards for a touchdown in Houstons 23-17 victory over Buffalo. He is the second player since the merger in 1970 to have an interception return for a touchdown and a touchdown catch in the same season. Associated Press AP PHOTOMiamis Jared Odrick greets spectators after the Dolphins 38-14 against Oakland On Sunday at Wembley Stadium in London. NFL: MiamiRevamped and revivedDAVIE The Miami Dolphins defeated the Oakland Raiders, 38-14, in London on Sunday, and now they head into their bye week with a 2-2 record and a bit of momentum. But the big story is whether quarterback Ryan Tannehill can continue to show the poise, accuracy and athleticism he displayed against the Raiders. Tannehill was 23-for-31 passing for 278 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. He showed good footwork and a nice pocket presence, two areas that badly needed improvement. Coach Joe Philbin seemed impressed. He had good velocity, he said. The location was good. I think he was just kind of clicking. He was kind of getting the ball out of his hand. We didnt have a lot of third downs or third-and-longs. I thought he made a heck of a throw, maybe the best throw he made was that opening drive of the second half. I thought that was an outstanding throw when he threw to (wide receiver) Brian (Hartline) on the sideline. They blitzed and he took a shot as he threw the ball. It had excellent location. Beyond Tannehills per formance, the Dolphins were sharp as a team. Running back Lamar Miller (12 carries, 64 yards, two touchdowns) ran downhill. Backup running back Daniel Thomas (ve carries, 35 yards; one reception, 25 yards) provided strong relief, and the offensive line was good in run blocking and pass protection. The wide receivers made their presence known with receptions, good blocking and some yards after catch. The defense produced two sacks, three interceptions, a recovered fumble and constant pressure. Special teams still need work. Jarvis Landry lost his second fumble of the season on a punt return. And so do the offense and defense overall. In fact, the Dolphins have been up and down in all areas this season. They had a bad rst half against New England, bad games against Buffalo and Kansas City, and an outstanding game against Oakland. What they want to do before returning from their bye week is nd consistency. Now we have to start playing at a consistently high level, Philbin said. Its time. I told the team before the game that weve been at this thing since July 24. You know what to do. You know what your job is. We havent changed a whole lot. Lets go out and play football. Safety Reshad Jones (suspension) and middle linebacker Koa Misi (ankle) should both be ready to return for Miamis next game, which is Oct. 12 against Green Bay. Their presence could help the regular defense, nickel and special teams. We want to get (Jones) up to speed as fast as possible, defensive coor dinator Kevin Coyle said. Hes a playmaker, he can be a difference-maker for us. The trickle-down effect with Jones is he could return to strong safety, putting Louis Delmas back at free safety. That, in turn, could mean safety Jimmy Wilson returns to playing the slot defensive back position in the nickel defense. That would allow cornerback Will Davis to play more special teams. Misis return could mean linebacker Jason Trusnik returns to special teams, which that unit could use. BY THE SPORTS XCHANGEDolphins now seek more consistency on offense PACKERS AT DOLPHINSWHO: Green Bay (2-2) at Miami (1-3) WHEN: Oct. 12, 1 p.m. WHERE: Sun Life Stadium, Miami Gardens TV: FOX RADIO: TBD TICKETS: NFL: Jovan BelcherAutopsy revealed brain damageA Kansas City Chiefs football player who fatally shot his girlfriend in 2012 before committing suicide showed signs of a degenerative brain condition found in other deceased NFL players, an attorney for the family said on Monday. A post-mortem analysis of Jovan Belchers brain revealed signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), said Dirk Vandever, who is representing Belchers young daughter. Belcher, 25, shot and killed girlfriend Kasandra Perkins, the mother of his then-3-month-old daughter Zoey. The linebacker then drove to the Chiefs practice facility, where he turned the gun on himself. The report comes as the NFL and former players discuss a proposed settlement to cover conditions caused by long-term brain trauma and the league faces criticism over its perceived leniency on domestic violence cases in recent months. CTE, linked to football players at a higher rate than the general public, is tied to rage-control issues and depression, according to Vandever. The lawyer tied the reports release to the NFLs current issues with domestic violence, noting ve different NFL players that have been implicated in the domestic violence. The league suspended running back Ray Rice two games after he knocked out his future wife earlier this year. Only after a video emerged in September of the punch did the Baltimore Ravens release Rice and the league suspend him indenitely. In addition to Rice, NFL players Adrian Peterson, Greg Hardy, Ray McDonald and Jonathan Dwyer have been implicated in domestic abuse cases.By STEVE GINSBURGREUTERS Bills name Orton QBBuffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone announced Monday that Kyle Orton will be the teams starting quarterback for this weeks game against the Detroit Lions. Orton replaces EJ Manual, the Bills firstround pick in 2013 who has started 14 NFL games. Obviously as the head coach youve got to evaluate everything and at the end of the day youve got to make the right decisions with your mind and when youre able to see things and with your heart, said Marrone. Manuel was 21-for-44 for 225 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the 23-17 loss to Houston on Sunday that dropped the Bills record to 2-2 after their second straight loss. After spending last season as a backup in Dallas, Orton signed with Buffalo in August. Chiefs 41, Patriots 14: In Kansas City, Mo., Jamaal Charles returned from an injury to score three touchdowns, Tom Brady was picked off twice and Kansas City (2-2) beat New England 41-14 to hand Bill Belichick one of his worst losses as coach of the Patriots. Charles, who missed last weeks win in Miami with a sprained ankle, ran for 92 yards and a score. He also caught two short TD passes from Alex Smith, who finished with 248 yards and three passing touchdowns. Harbaugh dismisses reports of dissention: San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said reports suggesting he has lost the locker room and that many of the players want Harbaugh gone are a bunch of crap. NFL Networks Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that there is growing dissention between Harbaugh and his players, and analyst and former NFL cornerback Deion Sanders said on the same network later that night that the 49ers dont want to play for their coach anymore. Around the league: Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said he was hopeful quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will be healed enough before Thursdays NFC North matchup against the Green Bay Packers. Bridgewater left Sundays smashing debut against the Atlanta Falcons with an ankle injury that sidelined him for the final 10 offensive snaps of the victory. Indianapolis Colts safety LaRon Landry was suspended without pay for the next four games for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances. The Colts also cut DaRick Rogers after the wide receiver was charged with driving under the influence. Dallas Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne is out for the season affter suffering a torn patellar tendon in his left knee on Sunday night. NFL NOTEBOOKBY THE SPORTS XCHANGE yards and two touchdowns Sunday, including the winning strike to Vincent Jackson with 7 seconds remaining. The Bucs took over at the Steelers 46-yard line, trailing 24-20 with no timeouts and 40 seconds left. Glennon hit Louis Murphy on a 41-yard pass to set up the winning score. Smith was effusive in his praise of Glennons performance but said he did not regret naming McCown the starter when McCown signed a twoyear, $10 million contract in March. The Bucs were 0-3 and McCown had two touchdowns and four interceptions as the starter in the rst three games. McCown hopes to test the thumb this week but if it doesnt improve, surgery is an option. I dont have any regrets, Smith said. We let things play out. I tell guys you start off with a group and wherever you belong, thats where you will end up. I dont have any regrets at all. As far as (Sundays) game, it was good to see. But I saw the same guy Ive seen with everything weve asked him to do: Poised, condent player that can play football. When you label the quarterback of the future, thats what youre supposed to do when you come out there. The future was in front of us a little bit earlier than the initial plan but you need to be ready at all times. Again, how he handled it there right at the end, to make that nal throw, kind of said it all. The Bucs had the football for 9:06 in the rst half before Glennon got hot. He passed for 245 yards in the second half, including 148 in the fourth quarter. It was redemption for Glennon, who felt passed over when Smith arrived. As a rookie last season, taking over in Week 4 when Josh Freeman was released, Glennon went 4-9 as a starter, winning half of the teams nal eight games while throwing 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Smith was impressed with Glennons poise and arm strength. But what really stood out was his decision making. Glennons interception Sunday came late in the third quarter when Mike Evans pulled up on a route with a groin strain. Evans is expected to miss 2-4 weeks. All week I asked him, did he need a sleeping pill to sleep this week? Smith said of Glennon. And he assured me he didnt. Then before the game (I asked him), Hey, Mike how far can you throw the ball? He has a great arm, so hes condent he can get the ball wherever. But that can get you in trouble sometimes you feel like you can force any ball anywhere. And thats what I like about him. He didnt take a lot of chances.SMITHFROM PAGE 1
