If youre currently enrolled in original Medicare which may include additional private supplemental insurance and Part D prescription plans or in an all-inclusive, pri vate, Medicare-approved Advantage plan, nows the only time to review your current options to see what best meets your needs and budget. From Oct. 15 to Dec. 7, you can make as many changes as you want during this open-enrollment period that takes effect Jan. 1, 2015. Current Advantage or Part D drug plan participants should have received their annual notice of changes. Read it carefully. Plans can change their costs and benets including premiums, co-pays, deductibles and out-of-pocket limits every year. For example, an Advantage or Part D plan may change its preferred lower-cost pharmacies and formulary or list of covered prescription drugs, with some moving to higher-priced tiers. So compare your current Part D or Advantage plan benets and costs to others offered in our area using the online Medicare Plan Finder now at www.medicare.gov/nda-plan. Dont choose by premium price alone. Additionally, verify with each of your physicians whether they participate in a specic Advantage plan. If youre thinking about switching from an Advantage plan to original Medicare, and are eligible to purchase a private supplemental insurance plan, the plan-nder tool allows you to compare features of all standardized Medigap plans in our area. If making changes, the Medicare Rights Center recommends calling the new plan and conrming the information. Then enroll at 800-MEDICARE (633-4227), rather than directly with the plan, for greater government protection if there are inaccuracies. A special disenrollment period from Jan. 1 to Feb. 14, 2015, lets you only switch from an Advantage plan to original Medicare and add a private prescription drug plan. Those with original Medicare cant make any changes after Dec. 7. Confused? The MRC has a website (www. MedicareInteractive.org) and a consumer helpline at 800-333-4114 that can help answer questions. You also can contact Floridas SHINE program (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders) at its Senior Choices helpline at 866-413-5337, or go to www.oridashine.org. Additionally, SHINE counselors will be at various area locations to help: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 15 and Nov. 19 at the Mid-County Regional Library, 2050 Forrest Nelson Blvd., Port Charlotte. 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 21 at First United Methodist Church of Punta Gorda, 507 W. Marion Ave. 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 23 and Nov. 13 at the North Port Library, 13800 Tamiami Trail. 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays, from Oct. 20 through Nov. 24, at DeSoto Memorial Hospital, 900 N. Roberts Ave., Arcadia. 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Fridays, from Oct. 17 through Nov. 21, at the DeSoto County Library, 125 N Hillsborough Ave., Arcadia. Appointments arent required. Bring your medications list, annual notice of changes and Medicare ID card. And ask if you qualify for Medicares Extra Help program, based on your income and resources. Finally, open enrollment brings out scam artists. So ignore anyone saying you need a new Medicare card or requesting your Medicare number for any reason. Also, trying to sell health insurance plans under Obamacare to those in Medicare is prohibited.

Im very pleased to represent the Port Charlotte Club in this competition. Being involved in Toastmasters has greatly enhanced my speaking skills, which, in turn, helps build my financial planning practice, Emch said. There is no finer group of people for making genuine, lasting and beneficial connections than Toastmasters. And did I mention fun? This is the most fun group I have ever joined, Hibberd said. Emch, Hibberd and Lonsdale are accomplished members of the Toastmaster club, and demonstrate how successful one can be at speaking when they participate in the Toastmasters program, said Gale West, president for the North Port Toastmasters club and Area 55 governor for Toastmasters District 48.

Our Town Page 4 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, October 3, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT If a forklift operator is rst on the scene to a hurricane-ravaged neighbor hood with downed power lines, he is the incident commander until the next rst responder arrives. Nearly 25 operations employees in North Ports Public Works Division learned whats expected of them during crisis situations Thursday morning during a training session ordered by City Manager Jonathan Lewis, who learned this week that about a dozen of the districts 57 employees confessed to cheating on Federal Emergency Management Agency online and classroom certication tests. Public Works Director Branford Adumuah asked for an outside investigation Wednesday, which continued into Thursday. Former Florida Department of Law Enforcement ofcer Steve Uebelacker, who has been conducting internal affairs investigations for the North Port Police Department, inter viewed eight employees Wednesday and canceled before hearing from all 24, after learning all to whom he spoke had cheated. He suggested the employees be retrained and tested. Lewis agreed. The investigation is not over, Lewis said. I am disappointed. I have been lied to. Lewis said he asked managers and supervisors at Public Works about cheating on tests or providing cheat sheets, and was told they were unaware it was going on. Lewis said hes learned more since then, and doesnt understand the motive behind the entire incident. This issue doesnt involve pay, Lewis said of the certication employees receive for successfully completing the FEMA course. If they lied about this, what else would they be willing to lie about? He said supervisors also should be trusted to tell the truth. Employees claimed their supervisors approved the cheat sheets so employees could get back out in the eld faster. Many admitted to not having computer skills to take the online test. Public Works employees spent Thursday starting at 7 a.m. in the FEMA class taught by Emergency Manager Rich Berman, and are scheduled for another session today. That group will be tested today. Another group in Public Works will be trained and retested in the future, city ofcials said. You can use your notes, Berman told employees, who, after a while, began asking questions and participating in group discussions. I checked with FEMA its an openbook test. Lewis said no one from any department has come forward with similar cheating situations. However, the Sun was notied by Utilities and Parks and Recreation department employees that cheat sheets were handed out to workers after they failed. Tests allegedly were taken by one employee for several others in the Utilities department. In Parks and Recreation, some employees dont have computer access and claimed there was no way to study for the test before taking it, causing them to fail repeatedly. One said he was given the cheat sheet by his supervisor. The Utilities director (Rick Newkirk) took it upon himself to question all of his employees but two who are out until Monday and will be asked, Lewis said. All have said they did not cheat and no cheats were available. The remaining departments also are asking all of their employees that same question. Lewis said he will not react to the situation until he receives Uebelackers ndings. We cant re everyone, he said. Im not condoning cheating. We obviously have a problem and we are working to x it. Safety is the utmost important goal for our employees and our residents. Adumuah was also at the training Thursday with employees. Its good, he said of employees learning details of incident command for the city during any emergency. Berman explained in detail about safety, command, operations, planning, logistics, nance, administration, staging, and who is in charge in the event of a disaster like a hurricane.When you show up on scene and you are the rst responder there, its like, Congratulations, we will give you your hard hat later, Berman said to the crew. First, you have to gure out what needs to be done to make this situation better. You are the incident commander until the other (police or re chief or another rst responder) arrives. You can pick up the phone or radio and call in things before others come on scene. You can isolate the area; close streets. Once the incident commander gets there, thats your new boss who is in charge of the entire scene.Adumuah said it was necessary to address the situation, as it was getting in the way of getting regular work done in the city. City employees would not offer individual comments to the Sun about Thursdays training, but many said the course was helpful.Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgNorth Port employees trained, to retake FEMA tests todayBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHSTAFF WRITERAN EMPLOYEE COMES FORWARD An email was sent to North Port City Manager Jonathan Lewis regarding an employees role in the cheating on Federal Emergency Management Agency tests. In the letter, the employee claims he was one of the workers who wanted to tell his story while being interviewed by investigator Steve Uebelacker. His interview was canceled Wednesday. He was questioned briefly Thursday. According to the letter, the employee stated, I proctored for a lot of my fellow employees and know that they used a cheat sheet. More importantly though, I know that none of this would have happened without the approval of Operations Manager Bill Vest. He was the person that approved the use of the cheat sheets (also referred to by some guys in the yard as the study guide) by everyone involved if needed. Because of my proficiency with computers, I was asked to help (co-workers) get through ICS (Incident Command System) 200. Everything was done without cheating initially, but eventually time spent testing became an issue that was mentioned more than a couple of times, as some employees were spending half a day or more on one exam and still failing. After I heard the, We gotta get them moving, one too many times, I let my supervisor at the time, who is no longer a supervisor, and superintendent Rick St. Louis know that the majority of employees werent going to succeed without computer training, FEMA materials training, cheat sheets, and/or all of the above. Rick St. Louis was uncomfortable with making a decision and went to tell Bill Vest. I was brought in to explain to Bill Vest what was going wrong and told him the same thing I told my supervisor and Rick St. Louis. Bill Vest said, Make it hap pen. That is where the FEMA exam issues were born. It was not a superintendent or supervisor that approved the action. It was the Operations Manager Bill Vest. It was not an issue of employees being capable yet lazy, it was a ... Were taking too much time issue. No one should have cheated, but if your boss OKs it and youre going to struggle if you dont I dont know that the Supervisors were forced to participate, but I do know that crews falling behind due to time taken testing was an issue for them. They have the worst job in the City. They get little to no protection from we the peons and they get little to no support from their managers. In this particular case, as I read along in the newspapers, it even appears as if someone is trying to make the supervisors the scapegoats, and that isnt right. Thats the kind of dirty play that has most or your workforce in our area fed up with your management team of Branford (Adumuah) and Bill Vest, and (their) two newest trainees Barbara McKeathon and Ryan Biagioli. This is another reason I needed to let you personally know what went on. I truly love my job and the work I do, but if answering to people demands truth always but only provide it when its convenient for them is what my future here holds, Im not feeling real good about being here anymore. We hear you guys wield the word transparency like an honorable knights sword, but transparent means clear. Unfil tered or unshaded. This supposed attempt to find the truth was just plain shady. Bill Vest should have informed you, Branford, and anyone else that asked on Sept. 11 that it was in fact going on and that he had approved it. If he did not, then you and everyone else were lied to by omission. You wanted to know why no one in the yard would come to you? Most dont trust any of you managers, simply because of the willful follow that with, Show of hands, who cheated? I guarantee you there would have been more than 12 that raised their hands. I also have no problem being attached to a polygraph while doing so, if Rick St. Louis or Bill Vest were to deny that Bill Vest gave the order to, for lack of a better word, cheat. Please feel free to share this with your investigator. Rich Tirado, Public Works City Manager Jonathan Lewis said he had not received the email yet. He said he would respond accordingly once he did. Vest was unavailable for comment. NORTH PORT Police have conrmed the identities of two people left dead in a possible murder-suicide Wednesday morning as Heidi DeCarlo, 43, and Bush Bena, 53. According to North Port Assistant Police Chief Tony Sirianni, the couple were separated and living apart at the time of the shooting. Both of their names were on property records for the home located at 2447 Florida Terrace, but they formerly lived in Ipswich, Mass., and Bena originally hailed from Albania. Police discovered their bodies just after 9 a.m. Wednesday, after responding to a family disturbance. Police said the dispute evolved into a shooting. According to records obtained Thursday, authorities had been called to the home twice prior to the shooting, the rst time around 8:30 p.m. Sept. 15, when they responded to a civil disturbance. Although notes were redacted, the call log shows that Bena phoned authorities that night, and they arrived just prior to 11 p.m. The report shows authorities cleared the scene around 11:15 p.m. Bena again called police around 10:45 p.m. Sept. 16, records show, and the call was logged as a suspicious incident. Police arrived much more quickly this time, roughly three minutes later, and cleared the scene just prior to 11 p.m. Notes also were redacted from the second call log. Crime scene tape used to surround the home and to block off sections near the residence was down Thursday, and the intersection of Munsing Avenue and Florida Terrace was quiet, a far cry from Wednesday when the block was ooded with emergency vehicles and reporters. Several white vans with biohazard decals sat outside the home Thursday afternoon, likely part of the ongoing criminal investigation. North Port City Commissioner Linda Yates, who lives on the same street where the shooting took place, said she did not hear the gunshots Wednesday morning. Yates said she knew DeCarlo was in the process of getting a divorce from Bena. Chris Ertle, who lives three houses down from the shooting, was sitting in his garage Wednesday morning when he heard three gunshots, followed by what he described as mufed shots. Ertle thought the sounds were due to reworks and didnt know police were on his street until roughly 9:30 a.m., when his wife Teresa returned home. Comments on the North Port Suns Facebook page also claimed that Bena, the soon to be ex-husband, was responsible for the shooting. Julie Beaulieu, DeCarlos sister, posted a photo of her on Facebook Wednesday, where friends and family left comments referring to DeC=arlo as sweet, a beautiful person, and they will remember her smile and laugh. We live in a very cruel world, Tim Paquin wrote on Beaulieus page. So unfair that someone so special is lost. Thursday afternoon, detectives were still at the house where the shooting took place, gathering evidence for the investigation. Police Capt. Chris Morales said Wednesday that it was an isolated incident and the neighborhood is safe. Sirianni said more information will be released once it is available. The shooting happened Oct. 1, which marks the start of Domestic Violence Awareness Month in Florida and the nation. The states domestic violence hotline is 800-500-1119, and can be reached 24/7 for information and help.

SUN PHOTO BY BRENDA BARBOSAPunta Gorda Police Lt. Joe King receives a tip from Alivia Lewis during a fund raiser Tuesday at Culvers restaurant in Port Charlotte for Do The Right Thing, a program that recognizes and rewards local youth for acts of heroism, honesty and community contribution.Culvers supports Do The Right Thing MURDOCK The Charlotte County Beaches and Shores Advisory Committee wants to consider what it will take to create a mooring eld in Chadwick Cove in Lemon Bay. But before they chart any course of action to recommend to county commissioners, they rst want to get better informed about how best to address the live-aboards and other boaters anchoring in Chadwick Cove now. The cove is located south of the Emil R. Swepston Bridge on Beach Road. Is it a health issue or is it a public safety issue? Right now, I dont know, said Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch, who regularly attends the advisory boards meetings. Charlotte County Sheriffs marine patrol and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission ofcers are patrolling Chadwick Cove regularly, primar ily checking that the septic holding tanks are operational and up to code. A City of Punta Gorda pump-out boat at Laishley Marina offers free services and makes rounds throughout Charlotte Harbor, coming as far north as the El Jobean Bridge near Gulf Cove but not into Lemon Bay. Some live-aboards have said theyve been carrying their septic waste to shore and are not releasing the waste into Lemon Bay. Obviously, you cannot transport (human waste) in buckets from one place to another in a dingy thats not acceptable by the Coast Guard, said Roger DeBruler, a county Natural Resources program assistant. (Law enforcement) has been trying to bring them all up to code, and there have been a lot of boats with their toilets not functioning, he said. DeBruler said the boaters havent seen any oversight for years and they are now regularly inspected. Thats resulted in complaints, he said. According to DeBruler, since the inspections began, two or three boaters have pulled up anchors in Chadwick Bay, only to drop anchor in Lemon Bay north of the Sarasota-Charlotte county line in Englewood. Nearly a decade ago, the county did commission a mooring eld study. However, advisory board members would want to see an updated report of what it will cost and require to establish a mooring eld at Chadwick Cove. Advisory committee member Katherine Ariens suggested the committee learn about existing mooring elds in other jurisdictions, even scheduling eld trips to those mooring elds. We, as a community, have to decide what we want, Ariens said. Advisory board members agreed Thursday to make it a topic for discussion at their next meeting on Nov. 6. The board meets at the Building Construction Services Conference Room, 18400 Murdock Circle, Port Charlotte.

Her landscapes will be displayed from Oct. 18 to Dec. 5. The Highwaymen were African-American artists who, in the 1950s and s, painted the Florida landscape palm trees at sunrise, beach scenes and glades. Barred from commercial galleries and mostly self-taught, they sold their art in hotels, ofces and restaurants, where they were not allowed to drink, eat or even sit. Many of the artists worked in citrus groves or packing plants and saw art as their way out. They were called Highwaymen because they sold their work out of the trunks of their cars along the Sunshine State highways. Kathy Wood, noted mixed-media artist, also will exhibit her work in the gallery showcases. Woods pieces, all one-of-a-kind, represent her deepest self. An opening reception for the artists will be held from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 18 at the fellowship. All work is for sale.

LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS ENGLEWOOD A homeless man was arrested Wednesday night after he was discovered sleeping in an empty home on the 2000 block of Maryland Avenue, according to a Charlotte County Sheriffs report. Stephen S. Torchia, 39, was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, along with one count each of burglary and criminal mischief, after deputies reportedly found him inside the house, along with several pills. At about 11 p.m. Wednesday, police responded to a possible burglary in progress at the Maryland Avenue residence. A neighbor, who was watching the home for the owner during remodeling, called police after he heard a man snoring inside. According to the report, Torchia woke up and yelled: I am sorry, I know I am not supposed to be here. During his arrest, the suspect asked the deputy for a cigar box. Ofcers discovered the box contained ve white, round pills and two rectangular pills, which were found to be trazodone and sulfamethoxazole, which require prescriptions. Torchia told ofcers he had a prescription, but not with him. When contacted by authorities, the homeowner said his suspicions had been aroused earlier in the week, when he went to check on his home and saw plywood ripped from the door frame and resting on the ground. Inside, he found a bucket full of human feces and a pillow and blanket on the oor.

Compiled by Gary Roberts and Drew WinchesterReport: Homeless man snoozes way to burglary, drug charges | POLICE BEATThe information for Police Beat is gathered from police, sheriffs office, Florida Highway Patrol, jail and fire records. Not every arrest leads to a conviction and guilt or innocence is determined by the court system. Applications are due today for the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce evidence supervisor position, a vacancy created last month after the former supervisor stepped down amid allegations that she showed up to work one night with alcohol on her breath. While new candidates are being considered for the important role, the agency maintains no evidence was compromised in light of the recent incident. We are not concerned about the integrity of our evidence, sheriffs spokeswoman Debbie Bowe said Thursday. And we have no indication of any such prior actions. Erin Hume, a 15-year Sheriffs Ofce veteran, resigned her post as evidence supervisor Sept. 19. The agency had been conducting an Internal Affairs investigation that alleged Hume showed up to work early Aug. 29 after drinking at a bar, and co-workers smelled alcohol on her breath. The recently completed IA report shows that Hume was called into work around 2 a.m. to assist with securing a large amount of marijuana from a grow house bust. When the IA sergeant later questioned Hume about allegations that co-workers had smelled alcohol on her during that time, she said she was at home and had been kissing her husband, who was drinking. Later, she admitted that she had had a beer at The Tamiami Bar (Now called CJs Tavern) in Punta Gorda. She vehemently denied she was drunk. According to the CCSO operations manual, Members will not report for duty, or be on duty while under the inuence of alcohol or other drugs or on duty with the odor of alcoholic beverages upon their breath ... An agency charge against Hume for showing up to work in such condition was sustained, as was a charge for untruthfulness, since Hume lied during the rst part of the investigation. Though several members of the narcotics unit told the IA sergeant they were so overwhelmed by the strong odor from all the marijuana that they couldnt smell any alcohol, other employees in the evidence department said they smelled alcohol on Hume. The State Attorneys Ofce was asked to review the case, and the department notied the CCSO Tuesday that they didnt nd any further wrongdoing. We were never pursuing criminal charges, said SAO spokeswoman Samantha Syoen. Its not like they were trying to get an arrest warrant or anything. They merely wanted us to do an agency review. Hume could not be reached for comment Thursday. Criminalistics manager Ivan Kiselev is temporarily in charge of evidence while CCSO looks for a new supervisor. There is currently an open IA investigation regarding Hume, but Bowe couldnt discuss it. Hume was reprimanded in September 2012 after she and evidence custodian Melody Shinner who also was reprimanded were involved in a boating prank gone wrong. It was around dusk, and Hume and Shinner were in a 23-foot vessel in harbor waters with their husbands and two other women. Everyone was off duty. The husbands jumped in the water to swim, and the girls took off in the boat as a joke, according to a Sun report. When the women tried to come back, they couldnt nd the men. The women called 911 about 45 minutes later, and a CCSO helicopter with infrared technology eventually found the men after midnight 1.5 miles north of Cape Haze Point, and a quarter-mile offshore.The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission also looked into that incident, and the investigator noted that he believed all parties involved were intoxicated.Email: email@example.comEvidence OK, despite supervisors woesBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITER

A rebuttal was published after that. It stated my letter had misinformation and falsehoods are not what the residents of Deep Creek Section 23 need. It stated, here is the truth: Deep Creek only increased assessments once in many years. Not true. It stated, All cur rent governing documents have been ruled as correct and legal by the courts. Not true. Judge Sherra Winesett in 2001 ruled in my favor on all counts. All amendments by the POA section 23 to our governing documents were declared void ab-initio. I stated this court case cost the POA $50,000. The letter stated, The $50,000 mentioned went to the letter writer. Not true. I got no money whatsoever and it actually cost me $3,372 out of pocket to stop the POA from taking our voting rights away from us. The letter stated, Candidates proposed by the dissident take back section 23 group are less than admirable, one is a longtime violator of deed restrictions, one is not a property owner and one wants to get rid of the deed restrictions.

Is it possible that the nominating committee could not find out of 3,342 property owners a couple more qualified candidates? Or were they told to submit only three names? Dictatorship or democracy?Kenneth Barnes Punta GordaEditor: Regarding the letter, Atheists challenge Ocala ofcials, I cant help but wonder what happened to our Bill of Rights. Amendment One: Freedoms, Petitions, Assembly Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. Clearly, this is telling us that we have the right to exercise our religious beliefs as we choose even if that means none at all. Why are the atheists trying to take away my rights by ramming down my throat theirs? If they are so hell-bent on not praying, then let them leave the room when a prayer is said rather than tell us we cant pray in front of them. The answer is simple. Get out. Once our prayer is nished, you can, if you choose, re-enter. If you dont choose to leave the room, then just dont participate. Its really that simple. Dont take away my rights to satisfy your own. That is unfair and against our United States Constitution.Margaret Brennan Punta GordaEditor: Regarding a letter on Sept. 27, I was relieved to learn I am not the only person in the country who wasnt a Joan Rivers fan. I thought she was foul-mouthed, mean-spirited and nasty and I dont get all the hoopla over her passing. Maybe Im missing something, but she really was a very supercial person. Having said that, Im sure she was a loving mother and grandmother. May she rest in peace.Mary Ann Collard Punta GordaEditor: Regarding Peace River Wildlife Center, I would like to provide facts that were requested in letters to the editor. On June 5, 1996, the city of Punta Gorda entered into a 20-year lease with PRWC at its present location. The city determined the boundaries of the property by an aerial GIS map. Apparently, the owners of the adjacent land at the time, PGI Incorporated, never noticed or cared about the acre next to the mangroves. On March 2, 2005, the city passed a resolution amending the lease by adding 1,045 square feet to the original site. Again, no one questioned the lease. Grande Harbor Group closed on a warranty deed to purchase the overall property in April 2005. No one at PRWC was notified that the new owners had a deed showing that PRWC Editor: A recent article County Launches Utilities Audit in the Sun stated that commissioners have ordered an audit of Charlotte County Utilities, and voted to award a consulting contract to an Orlando-based firm to perform an organizational review of CCU. This review, in part, to include a high level assessment of CCU operations to identify key risk areas. One area that Editor: First: The so-called president of the United States could care less about the citizens of our country. He gives money to other countries, but lets the people of our country go hungry. Second: He gave up ve terrorists for one deserter who cost us the lives of our own soldiers who were sent to nd him. When I was in the service, a deserter would either be shot or sent to prison for life. This is how the president cares about our country. This deserter was put back on active duty and also paid back wages, and then given a promotion. Third: He is letting all these immigrant people cross the border into our country, feeding them and giving them medical assistance. Fourth: He thinks nothing of doing what he wants and does not care about following the laws and the Constitution. Fifth: He has never disclosed just where he was born. Sixth: Congress has done nothing but bicker with each other, and they have accomplished nothing. I think it is time to say we the people must remove all Congress members and the so-called president and let the working people take over the country. On another note, our service men and women who are serving our country and keeping us safe, are not being properly taken care of. The reason this has happened is because most of the people making the rules for our country never put on a uniform and have never served their country.Robert Gaydosh Punta GordaEditor: In response to all you people who want to vote no to the penny sales tax, I think you have lost your marbles. Whats a penny or two, especially when it is shared by the tourists and snowbirds? Its a measly penny or two. What is the big deal, or would you rather see property taxes go up? Most of us, including myself, are on a xed income and cannot afford big property tax bills. Our county will obviously keep spending; that wont stop. I say vote yes to the penny sates tax and stop your whining.Deborah White Punta GordaCCU enjoys without risk, is how it protects itself from a loss of revenue, derived from unpaid water usage. Case in point: CCU, under County Ordinance 2007-179, (CCU Credit and Collections, Section 1, item C) can allow a renter to run up multiple months of unpaid water usage fees, allow tampering with CCUs meter on multiple occasions, and when the renter takes off or is evicted, simply defer those unpaid water usage bills, to the property owner. Why does CCU take no action against these type of renters? Because they dont have to! CCU, as long as it identifies the property owner as their customer and not the renter who uses the water, can, under a form titled Charlotte County utilities rental account agreement hold the property owner liable for all outstanding fees incurred by a tenant, even when CCU has indicated on the same form, that the renter is in good standing. When Charlotte County Utilities cuts its risk of lost revenue on the backs of property owners who have nothing to do with that lost revenue, it is a self-serving and unfair policy! Bill Guenther Punta Gordawas on private property. Early in 2014, PRWC wanted to build a new hospital and education center. They approached the city and a resolution was sent to City Council. A council member noted that PRWC may be on private property and an official survey should be done to establish the correct boundaries. It was at this time in 2014 that PRWC first found out that we are on private property. We immediately ceased our capital campaign. We were told that the owner intended to honor the city lease, so we have continued to treat and rescue injured wildlife and educate the community on how to interact with native wildlife. Ongoing operating donations will continue to be accepted to accomplish this mission. Bob Prier Peace River Wildlife Center Punta Gorda Tech Center is all about success storiesOUR POSITION: Charlotte Technical Center leads state in pass rating.Good news has been hard to nd when it comes to the performance of our local school district, so we welcomed Mondays announcement that the Charlotte Technical Center led the state with a 98 percent passage rate for its career training program for the 2012-13 school year. The status earned the district nearly a quarter-million dollars in bonus funding to support vocational training. There are myriad reasons for the success, including a motivated student population with clear career goals, talented educators with real-life experience in their elds and administration that identies in-demand careers where students can land jobs upon graduation and often before. The demographics of the student body at the Tech Center also helps, with many non-traditional students seeking training for a second career or advancement in their existing elds. CTC has demonstrated a knack for student-centered innovation, such as a child care center, exible course schedules to allow students to work and study, virtual online classes, a robust nancial aid program and job placement assistance. As Sun Staff Writer Sommer Brokaw noted in Wednesdays story, the center offers courses in automotive, culinary, cosmetology, dentistry, nursing and aeronautics elds, in addition to certicates in subjects such as computer programs that employers value. Another strength of the center is its dual enrollment program, which allows high-school age students to continue with their academic studies while training for a career in their chosen eld. The centers emphasis on the value of career training marks a generational turnabout from the days when vocational or technical schools, derided as vo-techs, carried a stigma among students and parents. As attendees at a recent Sun Roundtable on the job market discussed, schools must embrace the reality that not every student can, wants and needs to go to a four-year college. That is certainly the case in Charlotte County, where technical training has been a longtime focus, reinforced by signicant investments in facilities that allow students to train with the same equipment they will use on the job. Ten years ago, not knowing Hurricane Charley was poised to deal a crippling blow to the district, the Charlotte County School Board committed to a $21.5 million expansion of the Tech Center, the culmination of a visioning process that included educators, administrators, economic development ofcials, business people and community members. To its credit, the board honored that commitment even as the district labored to rebuild or replace six destroyed schools. Buildings dont make great schools, though, and credit for the centers success is due to Director Barney Duffy, Assistant Director DeeLynn Bennett, both transfers from Charlotte High School, and a dedicated staff of instructors, administrators and support personnel. And, most importantly, the students. When we cover annual graduation ceremonies, we are always struck by the diversity, perseverance and pride of Tech Center graduates. Regardless of age, background or circumstances, they share stories of setting a goal, overcoming challenges and accomplishing what they set out to do. As the recent award shows, almost everyone who walks through the doors at the Tech Center emerges better prepared for a successful career.
The Sun /Friday, October 3, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 9 Even as Republicans boast of their chances to take over the United States Senate come November, their partys governors across the country are facing dimmer prospects. From Georgia to Alaska, right-wing ideological rule imposed by GOP chief executives has left voters disappointed, disillusioned and angry. The problem isnt that these governors failed to implement their promised panaceas of tax cutting, union busting and budget slashing, all in the name of economic recovery; some did all three. The problem is that those policies have failed to deliver the improving jobs and incomes that were supposed to flow from conservative governance. In fact, too often the result wasnt at all truly conservative, at least in the tradition al sense as excessive and imbalanced tax cuts, skewed to benefit the wealthy, led to ruined budgets and damaged credit ratings. Consider Gov. Scott Walker, famous for surviving the recall effort that Wisconsins outraged citizens mounted in response to his attacks on labor. While seeking to end collective bargaining in 2010, Walker also passed a series of regressive tax cuts, which he vowed would bring at least 250,000 jobs. By sharply reducing state aid to schools and local governments, he temporarily closed a structural deficit but this year, with state tax revenues declining precipitously in the wake of his tax cuts, Walker is facing a $1.8 billion budget deficit. And as for the jobs, most of them never materialized. Wisconsin is near the bottom of Midwestern states in creating new jobs. In Kansas, Gov. Sam Brownback was equally faithful to right-wing orthodoxy. With the advice of Arthur Laffer, the genius responsible for Ronald Reagans exploding deficits in the 1980s, Brownback imposed a historically huge tax cut on the state. Declining revenues meant huge reductions in state services, especially education. And as furious Kansans have discovered, the Brownback experiment has achieved poor employment growth combined with ... yes, a massive budget deficit of nearly $350 million this year. In Pennsylvania, Gov. Tom Corbetts first budget in 2011 included major tax cuts for corporations, which cost about $600 million annually. By this point, it should be obvious who was required to pay for those favors: the children served by the states education system, who saw a billion dollars in cuts to their schools and programs, from kindergarten through college. This year, the state is facing a budget shortfall of over $1 billion, but Corbett doesnt seem to have learned much. He has demanded further income tax cuts that will benefit the wealthy and will cost Pennsylvania another $770 million in annual revenue. And what about his promise that the state would become No. 1 nationally in job creation? As of last summer, it ranked either 47th or 49th, depending on the data measured. So far, so feeble and it is scarcely more impressive in the other red states whose governors face re-election this year. The politician tasked with rescuing his partys beleaguered governors is none other than their colleague from New Jersey, Chris Christie, who serves as chairman of the Republican Governors Association. From that perch, of course, the blustering Christie hopes to run for president an aspiration that may recede still further from his grasp with each lost governors mansion this fall. Emotional as he tends to be, Christie surely empathizes with his fellow governors because his very similar policies have landed New Jersey in an equally precarious condition. So it is puzzling to hear voters in places far from the Garden State such as Iowa and New Hampshire tell reporters that they admire Christie because he saved New Jersey. Evidently, they dont know that the states finances have been sufficiently terrible to provoke not one but two downgrades in its credit rating this year alone. But bad bond ratings arent the only woe confronting Big Boy, as President George W. Bush called him. Christie is perfectly suited to his leadership role among the GOP governors if only because his economic record may well be the very worst of any American governor in either party. The question that voters must answer, this November and two years from now, is when these failed fiscal and economic experiments and the suffering they have caused will at last end. To find out more about Joe Conason, visit the Creators Syndicate website at www. creators.com. Budget-busting, job-killing GOP governors Joe Conason It has long been accepted by the conventionally wise that the Republican Party is waging a war on women. Lets be clear. The war on women is based on just one thing abor tion rights. While it is true that access to abor tion has been restricted in several states owing to Republican efforts, it is not true that women as a whole care only or mostly about abortion. I promise, this isnt another abortion column, not that the horric number of abortions performed each year shouldnt make ones stomach turn. Instead, extremists on the pro-choice left celebrate the right to terminate a 20-week-old fetus. Google an image of this stage of fetal development and try to comprehend the glee we witnessed when state Sen. Wendy Davis, now running for governor, became the belle du jour upon her successful libuster to protect that right in Texas. OK, sorry, so I digressed just a little. But it isnt possible to dissect the alleged war on women without mentioning abortion, since this is the entire content of the war as dened by savvy Democratic operatives. It was an effective strategy in 2012, aided quite a bit by some of the GOPs lesser lights and looser tongues, not to mention good ol slut-talking Rush. On the latters offense, and the silliness of the so-called war in general, I defer to Bill Maher, who recently chastised liberals for their selective outrage regarding womens rights. We hear a lot about the Republican war on women. Its not cool Rush Limbaugh called somebody a slut. OK, said Maher. But Saudi women cant vote, or drive, or hold a job or leave the house without a man. Overwhelming majorities in every Muslim country say a wife is always obliged to obey her husband. That all seems like a bigger issue than evangelical Christian bakeries refusing to make gay wedding cakes. Indeed. This selective tendency is also apparent when only certain women are deserving of defense in the public arena. Sarah Palin, whose vice presidency I politely opposed for legitimate reasons that are now widely embraced, has been outrageously abused in the vilest terms by Maher among others and left to twist in the wind. Yet Sandra Fluke, whose appeal for insurance coverage of birth control prompted Limbaugh to call her a slut, was elevated to martyr status and perhaps a political career. A more recent example of a war-on-women event occurred in Virginias closely watched congressional race between Democrat John Foust and Republican Barbara Comstock. This time it was a Democratic male attacking a Republican female in, shall we say, the most clueless terms. Lacking facts or nesse, Foust mused to an audience that Comstock hadnt ever held a real job. Meaning, what, that shes just a mom? Even if this were so, and it is not, why should Foust get a pass for such an ignorant, sexist remark? Is any Democratic male even one who manages to insult while pandering better than any Republican female? In my experience, a woman who can manage a household and juggle the needs of three children while obtaining a law degree from Georgetown University, as Comstock did, can run a corporation or a nation. Like many working women, Comstock did stay home in the early years to raise her children. She is also whip smart, funny, irreverent and erce. Her resume includes such non-cookie-baking activities as serving as a senior aide to Rep. Frank Wolf, whose congressional seat she is pursuing. She currently is serving her third term in the Virginia House of Delegates, where she has advanced legislation to thwart human trafcking and supported several conservative positions related to health care and tax reform. Yes, shes conser vative. And, yes, she also opposes abortion. Which is to say, she doesnt quite count in the national movement to elect more women to public ofce. When a Comstock ad recently called Fousts comments sexist, bizarre, insensitive, ignorant, the 10th districts Democratic Party tweeted, If @ barbaracomstock were a man, shed be down 20 pts w women. Her record & policies are horrible for women. No, if Comstock were a man, she wouldnt have to counter such slander. Virginia voters who oppose Comstocks legislative record have a clear alternative. But if they cast their ballots for Foust, theyll be electing a man whose disrespect toward women and the single job only women can do mothering is at least as offensive as Limbaughs name-calling. On the other hand, maybe Foust and Limbaugh cancel each other out neutralizing the war that never was. Kathleen Parker is a Washington Post columnist.

Our Town Page 10 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, October 3, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE Vanderweide, 24, of Punta Gorda. The FHP reports lists the case as under investigation, but Vanderweide had not been charged. The report shows he did not see Martinez-Garcia, despite there being streetlights in the area. No one else was involved. Martinez-Garcia was taken by ambulance to the helipad at Bayfront Health Port Charlotte, and then was flown by AeroMed to Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers. He remained in critical condition late into the afternoon. Thursdays accident is the second in less than a month in which a Charlotte County student was hit by a vehicle while en route to school. An 88-year-old woman driving a car hit a student from The Academy at Charlotte Technical Center who was riding his bicycle across Cochran Boulevard on Sept. 5. She was charged for allegedly leaving the scene of the crash. Officials say the recent incidents are sad reminders that students should look out for themselves as much as possible. Establishing and utilizing good safety practices are the responsibility of both a vehicle driver and a pedestrian, Charlotte County Fire/EMS spokesperson Dee Hawkins-Garland said. Both drivers and pedestrians should have their full attention focused on the roadway. Riley added that bus drivers at the beginning of each year talk to students about paying attention to traffic and walking where they are supposed to walk. Martinez-Garcia was not using sidewalks along the road where he was struck, according to the FHP.Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgSTUDENTFROM PAGE 1 spur redevelopment in residential areas, as well as enhancing streetscapes and parks to give Parkside its own unique identity. In addition, the county pledged continued vigilance on proactive code-enforcement efforts, and is considering an ordinance on rental-property management to encourage proper maintenance. The idea is to drive new development in this mixed-use area, said Matt Trepal of the countys Community Development Department. Theres no intention here to push the boundaries of the core district into single-family areas. The overall goal is to create a functional mix of uses in Parkside to allow all ages to live, work and play. But not everyone agrees on how to achieve that goal the best. John Vacha, a 16-year resident of Parkside, wants to focus on community landscaping, which he said is the most cost-effective and quickest way to improve the neighbor hoods image. We won World War II in four years, and we cant get some trees and flowers here? Vacha said. In addition, he opposed redevelopment as costly and unnecessary, saying there are already a lot of empty houses and condos with vacant units. So where do we need this extra density? he asked. Jim Fendrick, a Parkside resident who helped to establish the Parkside Community Redevelopment Area, stressed that it takes many different approaches to resolve the complex problems facing the community, such as poverty, crime and an older housing stock. This plan gives us, the citizens, the opportunities to make choices, he said. County Commissioner Tricia Duffy then made a passionate plea for residents to be involved in determining their future, adding she too is frustrated, but will continue to fight for Parkside. Parkside was going down fast. It was turning into a ghetto, she said. And the people said, Enough, we have got to take back our neighborhood. We have cleaned up these neighborhoods ... and it looks better. Susan Swanson, a member of the Team Parkside neighborhood group, echoed the commissioners urging for increased public participation and more civic pride. My thing is, dont bring me a problem bring me a solution, Swanson said. What are you doing to improve Parkside? Immediately, citizens moved to take up the gauntlet. Stirred by the camaraderie of community, residents ended the meeting talking excitedly with one another about possibilities, and exchanging sign-up sheets for Team Parkside committees and Neighborhood Watch groups.Email: email@example.comPARKSIDEFROM PAGE 1 Hawkins-Garland. The man had drifted more than 100 yards to the other side of the bridge. The rescuers docked at Tarpon Bay Condominiums, and from there medical personnel took the man to Fawcett Memorial Hospital in Port Charlotte. HawkinsGarland said the man, whose name was not released due to medical privacy laws, went into cardiac arrest. A sherman at the pier said he saw a commotion, but didnt know what happened. He noted the strong current through the area. The Sheriffs Ofce and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission investigated. The CCSO still was nishing its incident report Thursday afternoon. It was unknown if the man was with anyone. According to FWC spokesman Gary Morse, people dont go over board trying to catch the big one as often as you might think. There are some sharks, large grouper and other things that could theoretically pull you in, he said. But these incidents are fairly rare.Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgWATERFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY ADAM KREGERThe man who fell in was swept by the current more than 100 yards to the east side of the bridge, where some Good Samaritans in a boat pulled him aboard and began CPR.

ENGLEWOOD Jami Lin wiggled her hips to keep the hula hoop atop her waist at the Dearborn Farmers Market Thursday. Lin, a seven-time author, also has a booth at the market where she sells Chakra activators and EmBody Heart Wear and natural skincare products. M y products come from a chemist who made them according to my formulas, said the ener getic 58-year-old who also does advanced facials at nearby A New Wave Salon in Englewood. Ive taught and traveled all over the world and I didnt want to have any wrinkles. I began to develop skincare products. Good skin is all about science. Just around the corner from Lins booth is the Southwest Florida Produce stand. Its there where shiny, locally grown vegetables are being sold. Even closer is the markets mascot Lola, a 3-year-old potbelly pig. Between looking at jewelry, listening to Tommy D on the guitar, Susan Sitzberg of Punta Gorda bent down to pet Lola. We were looking for Englewood beach and got lost, she said. We ended up here. Its great. I love art. This is a nice market. It has a good combination of things to see. Joyce Colmar, market organizer said there are 35 spots at the market which features everything from fresh honey and coffee to breads and artwork. She said theres room at the market for demonstrations for everything from chefs to products and dancing. One woman is selling clothing to donate money to the guide dog club, said Colmar, who also owns nearby Vino Loco Restaurant, which also opened for the season on Thursday. Our market is a little different than the traditional farmers markets that are everywhere. We have an artists avor to our market. Its more like a street market or a European market. Colmar said if a shopper asks about a product none of her vendors sells but she knows it could be for sale across the street, she gladly sends them there. On the opposite of Dearborn Street, the Englewood Farmers Market has room for 60 vendors and currently features six bakers, beef jerky, Bloody Mary mixers, freshly made honey, guacamole, fresh salsa, white chocolate bread, hot sauce, soft pretzels, air plants, cheese and organically grown fruits and vegetables. We have a nice selection of gourmet packaged products, said Lee Perron, Englewood Farmers Market manager. We also have trusted growers like John Weil of Weils Farm who raises bees. He has 3,000 hives. Hes been in business for 31 years. Perron said there are other unique products sold by vendors like James DEsterre of Annalidas Gourmet Foods; Jon-Claude Stevens of JCs Daily Bread and Rich Olson of Stamper Cheese. Annalida is my mothers name, DEsterre said. Its my mothers picture of her when she was 15 thats on every bottle of our hot sauces and Bloody Mary (mixes). Our products are also sold at gourmet stores in Sarasota. Amanda Williams of JCs Daily Bread in Port St Lucie on is one of a handful of vendors who drives for hours to get to the Englewood Farmers Market. There is a slew of us who comes here and other markets on the southwest coast, Williams said as she sliced white chocolate raspberry bread. People keep coming back so its worth the trip for us. Olson spends part of the year in Wisconsin where he makes cheese which is later sold at the local market. He has a variety including Bleu Afne, dill, applewood, jalapeo, mozzarella, string, cheese curds, Parmesan and aged cheddar. Our market attracts people from all over the region, Perron said, adding there will be a grand opening celebration at the market on Oct. 16 featuring even more surprises than usual.Email: email@example.com.Beef jerky, cheeses, art and hula hoops By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH COMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR SUN PHOTO BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHLola, a 3-year-old potbelly pig, hangs out at the Dearborn Street Farmers Market on Thursday during its opening for the new season.

The unusual connement order was imposed after the family failed to comply with a request not to leave their apartment, according to Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins. Texas State Health Commissioner David Lakey said the order would help ensure the four can be closely watched, including checking them for fevers over the next three weeks. We didnt have the condence we would have been able to monitor them the way that we needed to, he said. The family will not be allowed to receive visitors, ofcials said. Authorities were also concerned about the cleanliness of the home and hired a cleaning service, Lakey said. The house conditions need to be improved, he said. A woman who lives in the apartment, Louise Troh, said she has been quarantined with her 13-year-old son and two nephews. Who wants to be locked up? she said in an interview with The Associated Press. Troh said she was waiting for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to collect a bag of the bed sheets and towels Thomas Eric Duncan used.Quarantine in effectBy NOMAAN MERCHANT and DAVID WARRENASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERSFamily that hosted Ebola patient confined to homeEBOLA | 3 MCT PHOTOVisitors stroll around the site of the Mogao Grottoes in Dunhuang, China.

Despite steady hiring and falling unemployment, the question has provoked sharp debate and considerable uncertainty on the eve of the September jobs report. Much of the uncertainty ows from a big question: Does todays 6.1 percent unemployment rate, far below the 10 percent it hit in 2009, mean the job market is near full health? Or does the unemployment rate overstate the improvement? The answers, whenever they come, could play a key role in when the Federal Reserve decides to nally raise interest rates. Were kind of grasping at straws, says Peter Cappelli, an economist at the Wharton Business School. Weve never seen a labor market quite like this.Job market mysteries waiting to be solvedBy CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABERAP ECONOMICS WRITERJOB | 3 ANKARA, Turkey Turkeys parliament gave the government new powers Thursday to launch military incursions into Syria and Iraq, and to allow foreign forces to use its territory for possible operations against the Islamic State group. The move opens the way for Turkey, a NATO member with a large and modern military, to play a more robust role in the U.S-led coalition against the Sunni militants. However, Turkey has yet to dene what that role might be. The vote came as the extremists pressed their offensive against a beleaguered Kurdish town along Syrias border with Turkey. The assault, which has forced some 160,000 Syrians to ee across the frontier in recent days, left the Kurdish militiamen scrambling to repel the militants advance into the outskirts of Kobani, also known as Ayn Arab. The assault came despite renewed U.S.-led airstrikes in the area overnight. The United States has been bombing the Islamic State group across Syria since last week and in neighbor ing Iraq since early August.

Their long-awaited nancial parity with the gun lobby, however, under scores the importance of timing in politics. Firearms violence has faded as a top tier public concern, a turnabout from the issues high prole immediately following the December 2012 massacre of 20 rst-graders and six aides at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. The subject barely registers in polling that shows voters far more focused on the economy and terror ism. This weeks Associated Press-GfK poll showed fewer than 1 percent of likely voters named guns as the nations top issue a view that many House and Senate contests reect. I cant think of one race where the gun issue has been prominent in any way, said Democratic pollster John Anzalone, who is involved in two dozen congressional campaigns.Missing-student suspect faced previous allegationsCHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) The man charged with abducting a missing University of Virginia student was accused of sexual assault at two colleges more than a decade ago, but did not face charges in either case. The allegations came to light after Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr. was arrested last week and charged with abduction with intent to dele 18-year-old Hannah Graham, who disappeared about three weeks ago after a night out with friends. Matthew has now been linked to Graham, the disappearance and death of a Virginia Tech student and three sexual assault allegations. In 2003, while Matthew was a student at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, he was accused of sexual assault and left the school about a month later. School ofcials did not explain why he left or was never charged. One year earlier, while a student at Liberty University, he was accused of raping a student on campus, but the matter was dropped when the student did not want to move for ward with the prosecution.Court to hear cases over employment, housing biasWASHINGTON (AP) Did retailer Abercrombie & Fitch discriminate against a Muslim woman who was denied a job because her headscarf clashed with the companys dress code?

The justices took no action on the highly anticipated issue of same-sex marriage, though a decision on the gay marriage cases could come later this month.

Speaking at an investment forum, Putin described the sanctions as utter silliness that hurt Western business and offered an opportunity for others to expand in the Russian market. Putin said the sanctions, imposed by the United States, the European Union and others over Russias role in the Ukrainian crisis, violated basic principles of the World Trade Organization and inicted lasting damage to the global economy. The ruble has fallen sharply as the sanctions have taken hold, imposing severe restrictions on top Russian banks and companies to borrow on Western capital markets. Capital ight is expected to top $100 billion this year as jittery investors dump Russian assets. Putin said that the Kremlin has no plans to introduce any currency restrictions or capital controls, adding that Russias Central Bank has enough instruments to ensure the nations nancial stability.Mexico captures drug cartel leader Beltran LeyvaMEXICO CITY (Bloomberg) Mexican authorities captured cartel leader Hector Beltran Leyva, one of the nations most-wanted drug trafckers, in the central tourist town of San Miguel de Allende, according to the Attorney Generals ofce. Beltran Leyva, who allegedly took over the cartel that bears his familys name after his brother, Arturo, was gunned down by Mexican forces in 2009, was captured in a seafood restaurant without a shot red, said Tomas Zeron de Lucio, head of the Attorney Generals criminal investigations. Beltran Leyva was living in the state of Queretaro, where he posed as a businessman selling art and real estate as he ran the cartel, Zeron said at a news conference in Mexico City on Wednesday night. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said last week that his administrations security efforts have led to the capture or removal of 88 of the nations 122 most danger ous criminals.Saudi Arabia: 2 million in Mecca for start of hajjMECCA, Saudi Arabia (AP) Saudi Arabia sought to assure the public that the kingdom was safe and free of health scares as an estimated 2 million Muslims streamed into a sprawling tent city near Mecca on Thursday for the start of the annual Islamic hajj pilgrimage. Earlier this year, Saudi authorities banned people from Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea the countries hardest hit in the Ebola epidemic from getting visas as a precaution against the virus. The decision has affected a total of 7,400 pilgrims from the three countries. The hajj sees massive crowds every year from around the world gather around the cube-shaped Kaaba in Mecca as part of a ve-day spiritual journey meant to cleanse the faithful of sin and bring them closer to God. All male pilgrims dress in simple, white robes as a sign of equality before God. EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) President Barack Obama acknowledged his pivotal role in the midterm political campaign Thursday, arguing that the November congressional elections are a referendum on his economic policies and blaming Republicans for blocking his efforts to boost wages and create more jobs. In a speech at Northwestern University that marked a shift in attention from foreign entanglements to domestic concerns, Obama laid claim to an economic recovery that he said has made steady progress, yet he conceded that many families have not beneted from lower unemployment, beefedup corporate prots and a pumped-up stock market. Obama offered a lengthy defense of his policies, from bailing out the auto industry to his health care law, and he renewed his call for a higher minimum wage and equal pay legislation. He said that while hes not seeking election in November, these policies are on the ballot, every single one of them. Promoting pocketbook issues in the homestretch of the midterm election campaign, Obama uctuated between bullish assurances that the recovery was real and recognition that joblessness and low wages still afict millions of Americans. These truths arent incompatible, he said. Our broader economy in the aggregate has come a long way, but the gains of recovery arent yet broadly shared. He underscored the political climate just four weeks before congressional elections, accusing Republicans of rejecting efforts to increase the minimum wage, renance student loans or extend unemployment benets and of pressing for more tax cuts for the wealthy. When nearly all the gains of the recovery have gone to the top 1 percent, when income inequality is at as high a rate as weve seen in decades, he said, I nd that hard to swallow. The speech came after Obama spent weeks consumed with international crises, though the White House had always planned to refocus on the economy to assure voters that he hasnt forgotten about their money struggles. An Associated Press-GfK poll released Wednesday found that the economy is the top issue for the Americans most likely to cast ballots in the midterm elections. Nine out of 10 consider it extremely or very important in deciding their votes for Congress. They have just one month to make up their minds, and Obama plans to speak out more during that time on pocketbook concerns, including a jobs speech Friday in Indiana. Besides criticizing Republicans for blocking his economic proposals, he also needled his favorite news media target, saying that fewer Republicans were running against his health care plan because while good, affordable health care might seem to be a fanged threat to freedom on Fox News, it turns out its working pretty well in the real world.Obama touts economic gains HONG KONG (AP) Hong Kongs embattled leader refused demands by pro-democracy protesters to resign Thursday, and instead offered talks to defuse a week of massive demonstrations that have grown into the biggest challenge to Beijings authority since China took control of the former British colony in 1997. Student leaders of the protests said early Friday that they planned to join the talks with the government, focused specically on political reforms. They reiterated that Chief Executive Leung Chunying step down, saying he had lost his integrity. A wider pro-democracy group that had joined the demonstrations, Occupy Central, welcomed the talks and also insisted that Leung quit. Occupy Central hopes the talks can provide a turning point in the cur rent political stalemate, it said in a statement. However, we reiterate our view that Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying is the one responsible for the stalemate, and that he must step down. Leungs comments came at a news conference held just minutes before the protesters midnight deadline for him to quit. I will not resign, he said. The students had threatened to surround or occupy government buildings if Leung did not step down, and the police had warned of serious consequences if the protesters carried out that threat. Standing beside Leung was the territorys top civil servant, Chief Secretary Carrie Lam, and he asked her to arrange the talks. She said she would seek to meet with leaders of the demonstrations as soon as possible. I hope both sides will be satised, she said. Students had wanted a public meeting but I hope that we can have some ex ibility to discuss details. The protesters want Beijing to reverse its decision that all candidates in an inaugural 2017 election for chief executive must be approved by a committee of mostly pro-Beijing elites. They say China is reneging on its promise that the citys top leader will be chosen through universal suffrage. Leung said the author ities would continue to tolerate the protests as long as participants did not charge police lines, but urged them to stop their occupation of much of the downtown area.Hong Kong leader offers talks AP PHOTOStudent protesters raise their hands to show their nonviolent intentions as they resist during change of shift for local police but backed down after being reassured they could reoccupy the pavement outside the government compounds gate, Thursday. GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) Students and teachers ghting a plan to promote patriotism and downplay civil disobedience in some suburban Denver U.S. history courses packed a school board meeting Thursday where the controversial changes could face a vote. Turnout was so high that the teachers union streamed video from the meeting room which holds a couple hundred people on a big screen in the parking lot outside. About 300 students, parents and teachers opposed to the proposal rallied in the parking lot and marched along nearby streets before the meeting. Carole Morenz, holding a small American ag and a sign that said History matters. Know the truth, traveled from Pueblo, Colo., because she is worried the change in approach to teaching history could be the biggest cultural shift of our lifetime. They will lose the knowl edge of what made America great, said Morenz, adding that she has been concerned about problems in education since she began homeschooling her children in the 1980s. Dozens of students took the podium, with just a minute each to speak. They delivered a box with 40,000 signatures they say they gathered from around the country in support. A walkout planned at a school Thursday morning didnt take place after the principal sent a letter to parents asking them to discourage their children from participating. The principal at Golden High School, Brian Conroy, said he is proud that students have made their opinions known, but a walkout now would be counterproductive and unnecessary because students have already gotten the boards attention. Students across a major ity of the 17 high schools in Colorados second-largest school district have left classes in droves over the past few weeks, waving signs and ags in protests organized by word of mouth and social media. Many teachers also have been calling in sick, forcing school to be canceled some days. District leaders said Thursday that if schools are forced to close because of a sick-in, teachers will have to prove they were ill or they could lose a day of pay. Students also could have to make up time using snow days. I respect the right of our students to express their opinions in a peaceful manner, Superintendent Dan McMinimee said. I do, however, prefer that our students stay in class. I have met with many students and answered their questions. The protests started Sept. 19, the day after the Jefferson County school board proposed creating a committee to review texts and course plans, starting with Advanced Placement history, to make sure materials promote citizenship, patriotism, essentials and benets of the freemarket system, respect for authority and respect for individual rights and dont encourage or condone civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law.Protesters pack meeting on education changes 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 eds.com and schedule up to 5 free 3-line classi ed ads each week.

(AP) Officers in central Oregon say a suspect they tried to collar at a traffic stop drove too fast for pursuing officers, but eventually he was just too fragrant. The Albany DemocratHerald reports that the driver gave officers in Linn County the slip in a high-speed chase before dawn Sunday, doing better than 100 mph in a red Honda Prelude whose hood flew off. But Lebanon police later saw the car parked and launched a search by foot. Thats when officers caught a strong scent of cologne in the darkness and soon found their suspect hiding in shrubbery. Thirty-five-year-old Charles V. Agosto was jailed on charges including probation violation and trying to elude officers. Officers said he told them he regretted using the cologne.ODD NEWS Cops: Suspect drove fast, had strong smell ALMANACToday is Friday, Oct. 3, the 276th day of 2014. There are 89days left in the year.

Longer lives are a triumph of human development and are contributing to growing numbers of older people worldwide, the study summary observed in urging governments to prepare for a future where as many as four in 10 citizens will be relying on pensions or retirement investment proceeds for their well-being. Those over 60 comprise 20.1 percent of the population of the United States, which was ranked 8th in quality of life for the aging. By 2030, that share will rise to 25.6 per cent of the population and to 27 percent by 2050. Over-60s already account for at least one in ve citizens of the 10 top-rated countries, except for Iceland (18.3 percent) and New Zealand (19.7 percent). Japan is experiencing the most dramatic rise in the number of elderly, with nearly 33 percent of the population over 60 now and an expected expansion by 2050 to a staggering 42.7 percent. That is largely the result of the country having the longest expected life spans on the planet, which other studies attribute to the lean and sh-intensive national diet. Life expectancy at age 60 is one of the key measures of living standards in the HelpAge study, and Japan topped that indicator with the average 60-year-old expected to live another 26 years. Income security factored signicantly into the top-ranked places for aging, with Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands and Iceland providing pensions to 100 percent of seniors. Japan and New Zealand provide social security to 98 percent of their citizens over 60, with the gure for Canada 97 percent and the United States 92 percent.QUALITYFROM PAGE 1 control a large cross-border swath of Iraq and Syria, in some cases right up to the Turkish border.

But it wont settle them. In the midst of a national campaign season, jobs and unemployment remain near the top of voters list of most important issues, according to the latest Associated Press-GfK poll. Only the economy overall and terrorism or national security were signicantly more likely to be cited by people who are expected to vote. Here are some myster ies about the job market:Will those who stopped looking for work start looking again?This, perhaps more than any other question, has confounded economists. Since the Great Recession began in late 2007, the proportion of adults either working or seeking work has sunk from 66 percent to 62.8 percent a 35-year low. Thats equal to about 7.5 million fewer people. But a debate has raged over how many of them are waiting for the economy to strengthen further before they look. At least half the exodus is due to retirements by the vast baby boom generation. Younger adults are now also likely to stay in school. And some jobless people who arent seeking work are now receiving disability aid. To some economists, all this means most of the dropouts arent coming back. If so, employers will soon have to pay more because the pool of potential workers has shrunk. Others, like David Blanchower of Dartmouth College, think employers still regard many of the dropouts as potential hires and, partly for that reason, feel scant pressure to raise pay. Andrew Levin, an economist at the International Monetary Fund, points to surveys showing that many of those not looking for work would return for the right job. At a news conference last month, Fed Chair Janet Yellen said she thought a meaningful number of the dropouts would take jobs if more were available.Whats happened to those unemployed for more than six months?The decline in longterm unemployed is encouraging. But heres what we dont know: How many of them have actually gotten jobs? And how many have just given up looking and so are no longer counted as unemployed? Labor Department gures show that no more than about 12 percent of the long-term unemployed are nding jobs in any given month below pre-recession levels of about 18 percent. But two Fed economists who studied changes over a full year found a brighter picture: Over a 12-month period, nearly 40 percent of the long-term unemployed nd jobs. Only about 32 percent drop out. If many of the longterm unemployed are getting jobs again, it suggests that the Fed might keep rates ultra-low longer to try to fuel further hiring. What does it mean that so many can find only part-time work?What does it mean that so many people 7.3 million who want full-time jobs can nd only part-time work? Before the recession, this gure was just 4.6 million. Levin, the IMF economist, thinks it shows there are lots more people who want additional work than the unemploy ment rate suggests. He estimates that the ranks of so-called involuntary part-timers are equivalent to an additional 1 point in the unemployment rate. As a result, Levin argues, paychecks arent likely to rise anytime soon. Some disagree. Richard Fisher, head of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, said last month that wages typically start rising once unemployment falls to the current 6.1 percent. He warned that wages may do so again, igniting faster ination. Research by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago indicates that many of the long-term unemployed, when they do nd jobs, take parttime work even though they want full-time jobs. Why arent companies filling more jobs?Companies are adver tising lots more jobs. So why arent they lling more of them? The number of available jobs has fully recovered from the recession. Yet total hiring hasnt. An index compiled by Steven Davis, a University of Chicago economist, indicates that companies arent trying to ll jobs as fast as they were before the recession. Companies took an average of nearly 25 days to ll a job in July 2014, up from fewer than 22 in 2006. There are several possible reasons. Companies may be choosier than they were before the recession because they feel that with unemployment still relatively elevated, they can be picky. Michael Hanson, an economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, also notes that technology has made it so easy and cheap to post jobs that companies may do so even when theyre not ready to hire. They may just want to see their options.JOBFROM PAGE 1APPLICATIONS FOR JOBLESS BENEFITS DROP TO 287KWASHINGTON (AP) The number of people seeking U.S. unem ployment benefits dropped 8,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 287,000, as the total number of beneficiaries dropped to its lowest level in more than eight years. The four-week average of applications, a less volatile measure, fell 4,250 to 294,750, the Labor Department said Thursday. Overall, 2.3million people are receiving jobless aid. Thats the fewest since June 2006, which predates the start of the Great Recession by 18 months. The numbers are so low now that it seems just a matter of time before we see a run of big gains in monthly hiring figures, said Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics. Visitors from the American Red Cross were seen Thursday bringing food to the apartment door. The North Texas Food Bank said it sent three days of cereal, tuna, produce and other supplies. Outside the apartment, the management of the 300-unit complex in northeast Dallas was passing out iers about Ebola to neighbors. Private security guards and local sheriffs deputies blocked off the entrance to dozens of reporters. Apartment manager Sally Nuran said employ ees were power-washing sidewalks and scrubbing common areas, though she believed Duncan had not visited most of the complex in his short time there. Elsewhere, Texas health ofcials expanded their efforts to contain the virus, reaching out to as many as 100 people who may have had direct contact with Duncan or someone close to him. None of the people is showing symptoms, but public-health ofcials have educated them about Ebola and told them to notify medical workers if they begin to feel ill, Erikka Neroes, a spokeswoman for the Dallas County Health and Human Services agency, said Thursday. The group will be monitored to see if anyone seeks medical care during the three weeks immediately following the time of contact, Neroes said. The at-risk group includes 12 to 18 people who came in direct contact with the infected man, including an ambulance crew and a handful of schoolchildren, plus others known to have had contact with them, she said. This is a big spider web of people involved, Neroes said.EBOLAFROM PAGE 1 (Sun Sentinel) Ever since a Texas man became the rst person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States earlier this week, anxiety has run high that the deadly virus could emerge in South Florida, home to a well-traveled, diverse population. State and local health ofcials, though, say they have been on high alert for signs of the virus since early August, and are aggressively educating a wide range of rst responders and medical personnel on how to spot and, if necessary, contain the disease. We are a global society, said Timothy OConnor, spokesman for the Florida Department of Health in Palm Beach County. It doesnt matter if it happens in West Africa. It also has the potential to spread anywhere in the world. The Texas case has not prompted South Florida health ofcials to change their approach to the potential for a local Ebola case. Local health ofcials had already ramped up preparations in early August, when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued its rst health alert on the growing Ebola crisis in West Africa. Being ready for any potential crisis is all part of the business of public health investigating, observing, surveilling and being ready to handle, OConnor said. Part of that response is to understand that Ebola isnt an easy thing to transmit, he said. Unlike the u, it is not airborne. It can only be transmitted through direct contact with infected bodily uids. As part of standard protocol, suspected cases are treated with the utmost caution, with medical personnel wearing masks, gloves and gowns at all times and the patient isolated in closed-off rooms separate from other people, health ofcials say. For the past two months, rst responders, especially those assigned to Port Everglades and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, have also been on high alert for Ebola-like symptoms: fever, severe headache, muscle pain, vomiting, diar rhea, abdominal pain, hiccups or unexplained hemorrhage, El Sanadi said.Ebola case in Texas hasnt changed Floridas approachDUNHUANG, China (LA Times) Hewn by hand out of a cliff face in the Gobi Desert starting about 1,700 years ago, Chinas most spectacular cache of Buddhist caves has endured countless assaults over the centuries earthquakes and oods, plundering foreign explorers and even Russian soldiers, who billeted here in the 1920s on the run from the Bolsheviks and lled their beautifully painted quarters with smoky cooking res. Nearly 500 caves at Mogao Grottoes decorated by meritseeking monks, merchants and mandarins between the fourth and 14th centuries have survived until the modern era. But the 21st century has brought a new source of peril to this once-remote natural trove of Silk Road culture 1,200 miles west of Beijing: modern tourists. Mogao, which received 26,000 visitors in 1979, its rst year open to the public, is bracing for up to 1 million this year. Yet thanks to some far-sighted planning by Chinese experts at the Dunhuang Academy, the researchers charged with preserving the caves, and their longtime partners at the Los Angeles-based Getty Conservation Institute, the sites treasures are getting a fresh shot at survival and even more international exposure.

The accelerating economy means investors are shunning gold even after the U.S. expanded sanctions against Russia and ramped up its military campaign to combat Islamic State in Iraq. Wednesday, the dollar climbed to the highest since June 2010 against a basket of 10 major currencies, combining with prospects for higher rates to erode the appeal of the metal as a hedge against ination. Gold dropped as much as 0.5 percent Thursday. Gold futures for December delivery fell less than 0.1 percent to settle at $1,215.10 an ounce at 1:51 p.m. on the Comex in New York.Key sales metric up at Olive Garden in SeptemberORLANDO (AP) Sales at Olive Garden locations open at least a year rose slightly in scal September, and its parent company Darden Restaurants Inc. now foresees second-quarter adjusted earnings at the upper end of its prior forecast. Darden, based in Orlando, Fla., runs restaurants including the Olive Garden, Longhorn Steakhouse, and The Capital Grille. It is in the midst of a public battle with activist investor Starboard Value, which is seeking 12 new directors for Dardens board. Starboard has been critical of Olive Gardens performance, while Darden has said it is implementing a variety of strategies to improve the restaurant chains results.

(Chicago Tribune) Sears Holdings announced Thursday that it plans to raise $380 million by selling most of its 51 percent stake in Sears Canada by early next month, shoring up its cash ahead of the crucial holiday shopping season. Sears approved a rights offering of up to 40 million Sears Canada shares, meaning existing Sears shareholders can buy the shares at a discount to the current market price. Sears Chairman and CEO Eddie Lampert and his rm ESL Investments, the companys largest shareholders, plan to fully exercise their subscription rights, which will add almost half the money, $168 million, to Sears coffers in mid to late October, the company said. Faireholme Capital Management, owned by investor Bruce Berkowitz, whose funds own 24 per cent of Sears, expects some of its clients to participate in the rights offering, Sears said. NEW YORK (AP) The stock market sputtered to an indecisive close Thursday, taking a pause after three straight days of losses. Small company stocks, which have slumped 10 percent from their early-July peak into whats known as a correction, recovered the most. Thursdays pause followed what has been tough spell for the market, including the Dow Jones industrial averages 238-point drop Wednesday and a weak September. The buying may have reected people stepping into the market to take advantage of the recent declines, a trend of buying on the dip that has kept the market rising all year despite various geopolitical shocks and worries about Europes agging economy. Stocks had been sharply lower most of the day, only to recover in the last couple of hours of trading. The Dow had been down as much as 130 points. People have been waiting a long time to get back in, and I think (the declines in September) created an entry point for the cash on the sidelines to start buying again, said Aaron Jett, an equity strategist at Bel-Air Investment Advisors, which focuses on investing for high networth individuals. The Standard & Poors 500 index was effectively unchanged on the day, rising one one-hundredth of a point to close at 1,946.17. Technically, the S&P 500s ever-so-slight gain let it avoid a fourth straight day of declines, which would have been the rst time that has happened since December 2013. The Dow fell 3.66 points, or 0.02 per cent, to 16,801.05 and the Nasdaq composite rose 8.11 points, or 0.2 percent, to 4,430.19. The Russell 2000 index, which tracks small-company stocks, gained 1 percent, far more than the S&P 500 and the Dow.US stocks avoid a fourth straight day of losses ,..iC/,10 0

Speaking to a national convention of female real estate professionals, the former secretary of state and potential 2016 Democratic presidential contender called on business and political leaders to close the gap in wages and leadership positions between men and women. Clinton, who joked that she felt that glow after the recent birth of her rst grandchild, Charlotte, said she wanted all women to grow up in a world of full participation and shared prosperity. I think my granddaughter has just as much God-given potential as a boy who was born in that hospital on the same day, she said. In a speech that drew heavily on her own professional and personal experiences including several references to her bruising presidential campaign in 2008 Clinton said women face double standards in business and politics and that governments should work to enact policies that break down barriers to equal opportunity. Her remarks were met with standing ovations. These ceilings Im describing dont just keep down women, they hold back entire economies and countries, she said, because no country can truly thrive by denying the contributions of half of its people. Clinton has repeatedly hit those themes as she travels the campaign trail to help Democrats in the midterm elections. On Thursday, she said the U.S. should eliminate what she called the motherhood penalty by requiring paid leave for new mothers. The measure, she said, would pave the way for more women to participate in the workforce. Laws matter, Clinton said. I believe 100 per cent in women being able to make responsible choices, but its hardly a choice if youre working at a low-wage job, you get no leave and you cant even afford to bond with your baby because you have to get back to work. Clinton was also in South Florida to promote her book about her tenure as the nations top diplomat and to help Democrat Charlie Crist raise money for his guber natorial campaign. Crist, a former Republican governor, is locked in a tight race with GOP Gov. Rick Scott, who has outspent the Democratic nominee by a 2-1 margin in television advertising. MIAMI (Sun Sentinel) After thousands of years in a tomb, whats a few days at the airport? Thats where a 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy is now stuck after being stopped Monday at U.S. Customs on its way to West Palm Beach for a museum exhibit. Its extended stay at Miami International Airport isnt expected to affect the Oct. 11 opening date of Afterlife: Tombs and Treasures of Ancient Egypt. But it has pushed back a medical scan the museum arranged at a local hospital, which is aimed at determining how the mummied 4to 8-yearold girl died. Ofcials at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium are handling the holdup with patience and a sense of humor. This poor girl has waited 3,000 years for her doctors appointment and the doctor is in and the hospital is ready, museum director Lew Crampton said. Everybody is waiting. It wasnt the mummy that caused the delay. Instead, it was several ivory pieces that were boxed up with it for the ight to Miami from Asia, where the exhibit just completed a wildly popular tour. Tom MacKenzie, a spokesman for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, said stricter regulations on ivory imports are part of the reason. The rule changes were put into place earlier this year as a way to protect endangered elephants. They can be complicated and take some time to work out, MacKenzie said. All the exhibit artifacts that arrived in Florida by air the whole crew, Crampton said are being held with the ivory as the issue is addressed. Two other mummies also are in limbo at the airport, along with the mummied girl. Our inspectors are working on it, MacKenzie said. And well be working to clear the rest of the shipment that doesnt involve the ivory. The museum partnered with St. Marys Medical Center in West Palm Beach to arrange the CT scans of the mummy, which were scheduled for Tuesday. Hospital and museum staff had planned to announce the results Wednesday morning. Now Crampton is hoping to get the airport issue resolved by Wednesday. Hes also hoping the mummys hospital visit can be rescheduled during its time in West Palm Beach. Its not the mummys fault, remember, Crampton said. The Afterlife exhibit, already seen by more than 4.5 million people worldwide, will be at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium through April 18.Clinton feels grandmother glow from Charlotte 3000-year-old mummy sees extended stay at airportTALLAHASSEE (News Service of Florida) State utility regulators Thursday approved a $54 million credit for Duke Energy Florida customers because of payments made toward a nuclear power plant that wont be built. However, the companys 1.7 million customers in Central and North Florida wont actually see the money. Instead the credit will be used to shave a few months off an ongoing monthly charge on residential customers of $3.45 per 1,000 kilowatt hours that is imposed for the scuttled nuclear plant in Levy County. With pressure mounting from Tampa Bay-area politicians, many up for re-election, the Florida Public Service Commission unanimously voted to reject a staff recommendation to take no action on the credit until Duke completes a legal battle with Westinghouse Electric Co. over equipment costs from the nuclear plant. In my book, I view that (the PSCs decision) as a credit, Commissioner Ronald Brise said after the vote. If I had to pay x amount over two or three years and ultimately Im paying less, Im receiving a credit. Thats the way I perceive it, and I think that is the way our customers are going to view it. In 2012, the utility regulators agreed in a settlement to impose the $3.45-a-month charge to cover previously approved costs and equipment already purchased for the Levy County plant. The fee was set to run into 2017. Staff noted it could be a year or two before Dukes legal issues with Westinghouse are settled. Duke has become a convenient punching bag for many politicians as the general election approaches. This week, a number of legislators have announced plans to push bills during the 2015 session aimed at Duke and other power companies, with the proposals ranging from imposing state lobbying requirements on utility representatives hired to sway the commission to prohibiting a utility from being able to charge customers at a higher rate due to an extended billing cycle. Duke has so far credited about $1.3 million to about 208,000 customers who received higher-than-usual monthly bills as the company extended billing cycles while changing meter-reading routes. Prior to the commission meeting, Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, and Attorney General Pam Bondi were among those questioning the PSC staff recommendation that would have allowed Duke to hold onto the $54 million pending the outcome of the Westinghouse litigation. Both applauded the commissions vote Thursday. Clearly the Public Service Commission heard us and decided in favor of Tampa Bay area consumers, Brandes said in an email after the vote.

The rst-year coach wanted to be prepared should the Bobcats stop the Lakewood Ranch offense. He wanted them to have some plays ready for a two-minute drill to get into eld goal range for overtime; if the game came to that. The Bobcats didnt get a chance to run any of those plays. The Mustangs ran the ball on every play of a 10-play, 55-yard drive late in the fourth quarter, capping it with running back Darren Lowerys 1-yard plunge into the end zone with just seconds remaining on the clock as Lakewood Ranch defeated North Port 28-21 on Thursday at The Preserve. I never imagined they were going to run the ball like that over and over and over, Detwiler said. But kudos to Lakewood Ranch. Theyre 1-1 in the district, and were 0-2. The Bobcats tied the game at 21 on quarterback Mike Innellos 18-yard touchdown pass to a leaping Stantley Thomas with 5:27 remaining in the game, but he and PREP FOOTBALL: Lakewood Ranch 28, North Port 21SUN PHOTO BY JENNIFER BRUNONorth Port High Schools Michael Innello carries against Lakewood Ranch on Thursday at the Preserve in North Port.

INSIDE: Venice steamrolls Dixie Hollins, PAGE 6BOBCATS | 6 PREP FOOTBALL: Fort Myers 41, Port Charlotte 25Green Wave ride Moore past PiratesFORT MYERS Fort Myers High School coach Sammy Sirianni never had a thought to kick the eld goal, two yards from Port Charlottes goal line and one play until halftime. But Terrance Moore made that an easy decision. Moore sped through a gap in the middle of the Green Wave line, scoring a decisive touchdown in Fort Myers 41-25 victory over Port Charlotte and bouncing off Malik VaccaroDixon on the way. Terrence Moore, I love to go to battle with that guy, Sirianni said. And our offensive line is a great group to run behind. Moore proved a double threat on Thursday night, chewing up big rushing yardage and doing substantial damage to Port Charlottes hopes to repeat as district champions. The senior rushed 25 times for 136 yards and three touchdowns it was his 11th straight game of 100 yards or more. He also left Port Charlotte coach Jordan Ingman offering tough love to his players after an early district loss. It was the Pirates rst district loss since 2012. It was tough, Ingman said.

They are still searching for that perfect 60-minute complete game. Little has come easy as FSU needed two second-half comebacks, including overtime against Clemson, and a late touchdown in the season-opener to hold onto its perch atop college football. Theres no better time to clean things up than against an extremely young Wake Forest (2-3, 0-1) roster that is the only team in the ACC with a losing record. Its just scary to see how slow we come out in the rst half and ... get behind and be so relaxed and still condent, FSU receiver Rashad Greene said. Not breaking apart. Come back forcefully and automatically click together. Who knows what can happen if we come out there and start fast? ... Im just excited as Jimbo (Fisher) and anxious to see how we play a full game. The Seminoles (4-0, 2-0) are ranked the No. 35 scoring offense in the nation after shattering offensive records during its title run. Theyve scored just 41 of their 116 points against FBS teams in the rst half.

The result was a lopsided sweep by the Tarpons (25-18, 25-15, 25-21), who earlier in the season defeated a rested group of Manta Rays in five sets. The Tarpons (12-4) were so hot in Game 1 and Lemon Bay so cold that for a while it seemed the Manta Rays (8-10) might only score when Charlotte handed them a point. The Tarpons took an 8-1 lead on a pair of aces from Megan McGill and kills from Mykelli Taylor, Marisa Beisner and Maddie Foley. On the other side of the net, Lemon Bay struggled to find its rhythm, scoring once under its own power and relying on Charlotte for five of its first six points. The Tarpons also got a big hand from Maddie Foley, as the junior middle notched six of her 10 kills the first game. Maddie has been doing really well and her hitting has come along, Charlotte coach Michelle Dill said. She can hit the ball very hard. Shes very subtle, but she has a lot of power, and when shes on, shes on. Lemon Bay staved off defeat by rallying late in the set. The Manta Rays outscored Charlotte 7-2 behind Maureen Ryans hot hand and moved to within 24-18 before Foley sealed the win with a kill.

In little time, freshman Kari Grippo has become one of the top cross country runners for Saint Leo University. The Venice resident has placed among the teams top three runners in two of three meets. The Saint Leo women ranked second among Division II programs in the South Region, according to the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association poll released Tuesday. Grippo is invested in the sport, Saint Leo coach Melissa Mangen said. Shes been positive from the get-go, she said. She enjoys this sport. She really steps up. She asks a lot of questions. Ive been able to lean on her. Shes very consistent and dependable. Im not surprised, she said. She puts in the work. Grippo prepared this summer for her rst season, so the 60 to 70 miles per week training with the team hasnt been too much. I was putting in a lot of mileage, she said. Im enjoying running more miles. I enjoy the longer distances. She was fth among the Lions in the South Florida Invitational 5K, nishing in 20 minutes, 23.91 seconds. She had a breakthrough at the University of Tampa 5K, where she used a different race strategy. At Mangens suggestion, she ran the rst two miles at a quick pace, then eased off for the rst half of the third mile before picking up speed for the home stretch. Grippo nished in 19:53.00, seventh over all and second among the Lions. In college theres so many girls who can run really fast. Everyones in packs, Grippo said. Im trying now to go out with that lead pack. Grippo lowered her time again in the Mountain Dew Invitational 5K. She was 11th overall and third among the Lions in the non-Division I competition, nishing in 19:10.88. She can handle pressure, the coach said. She rises to the occasion very well. As her time improves, Grippo said shes trying to improve her kick in races. During practices she does progression runs when she nishes at a fast pace and change of pace runs to focus on the last 200 meters. Im more of an endur ance runner, she said. The last 200, I dont have that kick.

Given the second chance, the Yankees scored four runs for a 7-4 victory and a 3-1 lead in the World Series, which they ended up winning. 1947 Al Gionfriddos catch in left eld robbed Joe DiMaggio of a game-tying home run in Game 6 of the World Series. The Dodgers beat the Yankees 8-6. 1966 Baltimore relief pitcher Moe Drabowsky fanned 11 and gave up one hit in 6 2-3 innings to beat the Dodgers 5-2 in the opening game of the World Series. 1967 Jim Lonborg of the Boston Red Sox pitched a one-hit, 5-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals to tie the World Series 1-1. Carl Yastrzemski hit two home runs. 1996 Bernie Williams homered from each side of the plate and Cecil Fielder broke a tie with a seventh-inning single as the New York Yankees beat Texas 6-4. LOS ANGELES The last time the Los Angeles Dodgers faced the St. Louis Cardinals in the playoffs, Clayton Kershaw had a terrible outing and the Dodgers were bounced out of the postseason. A year later and a round earlier, Kershaw has a chance to erase the memories of that 9-0 loss in Game 6 when he starts todays NL Division Series opener against Adam Wainwright. Thats the hardest part about it. Your season ends, Kershaw said Thursday before the Dodgers worked out. It always hangs with you until your next start. I had to wait a long time for that next one. Kershaw is coming off another award-worthy regular season in which he went 21-3 and his 1.77 ERA led the major leagues for the fourth straight year. He was 10-2 with a 1.70 ERA at home, too. Wainwright hasnt been nearly as successful at Chavez Ravine. The right-hander is 1-3 with a 4.30 ERA in seven games, including six starts. I pay no mind to what happened in the regular season, Wainwright said. Obviously, Clayton had an amazing regular season and now we go to the postseason and its anybodys ballgame. This is one game for the rest of your lives every day, so well take that mindset and be ready. Wainwright had the third-best ERA in the National League at 2.38 this season, and was even better on the road at 1.72. But in a season in which Kershaw has been so dominant, the Cardinals ace cant help but be somewhat of an afterthought. Im more impressed that, what is he 26 years old, that hes had the career hes already had and is the pitcher he is already, the 33-year-old Wainwright said. Most times it takes a pitcher a few years to kind of break in and then he starts nding his own, and hes just been excellent from the very beginning. Kershaw missed a handful of starts with a bad back in April, and after pitching late into the postseason a year ago, the injury provided him some welcome rest. Manager Don Mattingly said the team was looking for ways to reduce Kershaws innings anyway, and the schedule kicked in some extra help late last month. I dont know if thats going to make a differ ence or not, Kershaw said. I feel pretty much the same health-wise as I did last year. Arm feels great. Strength, every thing physically feels really good.By BETH HARRISASSOCIATED PRESS BASEBALL: Los Angeles vs. St. LouisKershaw looks for revenge vs. CardsAP FILE PHOTOLos Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw throws against the St. Louis Cardinals during a game last year.

MATCHUPS A rematch of last years league championship series won by the Cardinals in six games behind NLCS MVP Wacha, who beat Kershaw twice. This will be the teams fifth meeting in postseason, and third in the last six years. Cardinals are 3-1 ... The Dodgers took three of four in Los Angeles in June, and the Cardi nals took two of three in St. Louis in July. ... The Dodgers outscored the Cardinals 17-4 in four home games, while each of the three games in St. Louis were decided by two runs or less. ... The Dodgers are a healthier team heading into the playoffs compared to last year, when they were missing Kemp, Andre Ethier was slowed by a bad ankle and Ramirez broke a left rib after getting hit by a pitch in Game 1 of the NLCS and wasnt the same for the remaining games. ... Kershaw is favorite to win third Cy Young and dominated in winning both starts against St. Louis this season, allowing three runs and striking out 21 in 14 innings. ... Carpenter is 3 for 6 against Kershaw this sesaon, 9 for 35 (.257) with 10 BBs and 10 Ks overall. ... Peter Bourjos is the only Cardinals player to homer off Kershaw this year. ... Ethier has most success against Wainwright for Dodgers. Hes 10 for 39 (.256) with three homers and seven RBIs. WATCH LIST Ryus shoulder: The Dodgers left-hander will make his first start in Game 3 since leaving an outing on Sept. 12 with shoulder irritation. He missed nearly a month earlier in the season with the same problem. In his first game back on May 21 against the Mets, Ryu pitched six innings and allowed two earned runs while striking out nine Hot hitters: With four days off before Game 1, the Dodgers might wonder whether their hot-hitting lineup can stay that way. Kemp has been tearing it up since the All-Star break after starting the season slowly. Gonzalez also struggled early, but has been a consistent run producer since the break. Deep outfield: Grichuk was consid ered an afterthought in an offseason trade for outfielder Bourjos that sent 2011 postseason star David Freese to the Angels. The rookie has done well enough in his second stint to earn at least a platoon role with fellow rookie Oscar Taveras, considered the teams top prospect. Jay was supposed to be the fourth outfielder and got a one-year deal, a wakeup call thats prompted his strongest overall season. Hes stepped up particularly on defense.

MATCHUPS These franchises have never met in the postseason, although the New York Giants did play the old Wash ington Senators in the 1924 and World Series, with the Giants losing the first and winning the second. ... The Nationals won five of the seven meetings this season, taking three of four in San Francisco in June and two of three at home in August. ... In the finale of the season series, Strasburg left in the fourth after allowing five earned runs, but Washington won 14-6, erasing a 6-3 deficit with 14 hits off Giants relievers. ... While the Nationals finished strong, the Giants went only 41-40 in the second half, 13-12 in September. ... Giants manager Bruce Bochy has won two World Series titles; Washington rookie skipper Matt Williams, a four-time All-Star while playing for San Francisco from 1987-96, has never managed in the playoffs. WATCH LIST Playoff tested: The Giants have won eight straight postseason games dating to their 2012 World Series run and have been at their best in October under Bochy. They have won seven consecutive elimination games in the postseason after beating Pittsburgh and dont get overwhelmed by the pressure. Potent panda: Sandoval has keyed San Franciscos postseason success during the past two trips. He has an 11-game postseason hitting streak and is batting .421 with six homers and 13 RBIs in his last 14 postseason games. That includes his threehomer game in the 2012 World Series opener against Detroit. Strasburgs debut: Finally, the moment baseball fans all over not to mention Strasburg himself have been waiting for: The No. 1 pick in the 2009 amateur draft, the guy with the electric stuff, the 6-foot-4 right-hander who struck out 14 in his first major league start, will show what he can do in the postseason spotlight. The Nationals shut down Strasburg in September 2012 to protect his surgically repaired pitching elbow, a decision hotly debated as the club exited quickly from the playoffs. Associated Press MLB NOTEBOOKOaklands Beane defends dealsOAKLAND, Calif. Billy Beane not only didnt apologize Wednesday for the Yoenis Cespedes-Jon Lester trade that ultimately blew up in a one-game wild-card loss, he also insisted the As wouldnt have made the playoffs if he hadnt made the deal. Deant in the wake of heavy criticism of his midseason moves that many believe under mined the As clubhouse chemistry and in the end, didnt work the As general manager held steadfast and said hed do it over again. Simply put, if we dont have Jon Lester, I dont think we make the playoffs, he said. We made it on the last day, and if we dont make that exchange, I dont believe we make it. The As went 16-30 down the stretch after spending most of the rst half of the season with baseballs best record. But Beane intimated that any talk of the Cespedes trade wrecking team chemistry and ultimately leading to the late-season struggles is pointless. I would rather have production, he said. I think production ultimately creates chemistry. Beane maintained he saw trouble coming while things were going good. When we traded for (Jeff) Samardzija and (Jason) Hammel, I think one of the rst questions was, Why would you trade for two pitchers, youre rst in the league in ERA? he said. We werent going to stay there. We knew it. Our job is to try and correct things before they become a problem, and some of the problems that we had we could see coming. Carl Steward, The Oakland Tribune Strasburg gets Game 1 start: Stephen Strasburgs postseason debut will come in Game 1 of the NL Division Series today when he takes the mound at home for the Nationals against the San Francisco Giants. The announcement by Washington manager Matt Williams on was no surprise: Strasburg was the teams opening-day starter and hes been much better at home than away. In 18 starts at Nationals Park this season, Strasburg went 9-3 with a 2.56 ERA. In 16 road starts, he was 5-8 with a 3.82 ERA. Still, one of the right-handers worst showings came at home against San Francisco. On Aug. 24, the last time the teams met, Strasburg left after only four innings, having allowed five runs. D-Backs to interview As bench coach: The Arizona Diamondbacks said they have received permission to interview Oakland Athletics bench coach Chip Hale for the teams vacant manager position. Hale is a former manager of the Diamondbacks Triple-A affiliate in Tucson and was on the big league coaching staff, either as infield coach or third base coach, for Arizona for three seasons. He just completed his third season as Oakland manager Bob Melvins bench coach. Before that, he was third base coach for the New York Mets for two seasons. Around the league: The New York Mets said they will replace hitting coach Lamar Johnson and assistant hitting coach Luis Natera. They have been offered jobs in the Mets minor league system, New York said. Johnson became hitting coach when Dave Hudgens was fired on May 26, and Natera filled the new position of assistant on March 24. In player news, catcher Travis dAr naud had a bone chip removed from his right elbow Tuesday. Rehabilitation time is estimated at sixto-eight weeks. Right-hander Jenrry Mejia had sports hernia surgery, a procedure with a three-week rehab. ... The Texas Rangers received righthander Alfredo Figaro on a waiver claim from Milwaukee. To make room for Figaro on its roster, Texas designated right-hander Wilmer Font for assignment. The Giants rout of the Pirates drew the highest television rating in the brief history of baseballs wild-card games. San Franciscos 8-0 win Wednesday on ESPN averaged a 3.6 rating despite the lopsided score. The nearly 5.6 million viewers are up 19 percent from the 4.7 million for last years AL wild-card game on the same day, Tampa Bays 4-0 win over Cleveland. Associated PressFROM WIRE REPORTSStrasburg gets Game 1 start BALTIMORE The way Nelson Cruz and the Baltimore Orioles are hitting this season, it may not matter much who pitches for the other guys. Cruz and J.J. Hardy homered, and the Orioles hammered out 12 hits in defeating Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer and the Detroit Tigers 12-3 Thursday in the opener of their AL Division Series. Rookie Jonathan Schoop had two hits and two RBIs for the Orioles, who turned a close game into a rout with an eight-run eighth inning against Scherzer and three ineffective relievers. The 12 runs set a postseason record for Baltimore, making its second playoff appearance since 1997. Game 2 of the bestof-ve series is today at Camden Yards. Justin Verlander, the second of three straight Cy Young winners the Orioles will face, is set to go against left-hander Wei-Yin Chen. Cruz led the majors with 40 homers during the regular season, a good portion of Baltimores big league-best 211 long balls. His rst-inning drive off Scherzer put the Orioles up 2-0 before Detroits Victor Martinez and J.D. Martinez connected off winner Chris Tillman in the second to tie it. But Baltimore had too much repower for the Tigers. Hardy homered leading off the seventh for a 4-2 lead, and Cruz added his third RBI with a single during a wild eighth inning keyed by a Detroit error that kept the boister ous, orange-clad crowd of 47,842 on its feet. Tillman (1-0) allowed two runs in ve innings before Andrew Miller got ve outs three by strikeout. Darren ODay gave up an eighth-inning homer to Miguel Cabrera, but the drive followed a double play. Baltimore manager Buck Showalter then called upon closer Zach Britton, who had 37 saves during the regular season. Britton got the last out in the eighth, and by the time the ninth inning rolled around, he wasnt needed anymore. Miller had a 1.35 ERA in 23 games with Baltimore, ODay nished at 1.70 and Britton closed at 1.65. Thats one big reason why the AL East-champion Orioles were 80-4 when leading after eight innings. Meanwhile, Detroits revamped bullpen has looked shaky although it was shortstop Andrew Romines error that got the big eighth inning going. Pitching against Baltimore for the rst time since 2013, Scherzer allowed ve runs and seven hits in 713 innings. The right-hander was 18-5 during the regular season, but in this one he was burned by the long ball and outpitched by the Orioles. Although he had a 5.56 ERA in the rst inning during the regular season, Tillman began his initial foray into the playoffs by striking out the side on 14 pitches. Cruz hit an opposite-eld drive to right in the bottom half after Nick Markakis hit a leadoff single. It was his 15th career postseason home run, tied with Babe Ruth for 10th place on the career list.

Page 4 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, October 3, 2014 MIAMI Jameis Winston avoided criminal charges after a woman said he sexually assaulted her. But the Florida State quarterback cant seem to move on from the case as a possible civil lawsuit and potential punishment from the university looms ahead. The bottom line: its not over. Legal experts say the woman has four years from the December 2012 encounter to le a lawsuit against Winston, the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner and current leader of the top-ranked and defending national champion Seminoles. The case could also be settled out of court. That could mean that shell seek a chunk of the millions of dollars he could command in a future NFL contract. Winston has made no decision about his timing on the draft, but could decide to declare next year. Im not sure that she will ever lose her leverage until the statute of limitations runs out, said David S. Weinstein, a former federal prosecutor now in private practice in Miami. One of the womans attorneys, Baine P. Kerr, said in an email that there are no ongoing settlement discussions at this time with Winston and that he couldnt comment at this time about a lawsuit for sexual battery. Attorney David Cornwell, who is acting as a legal adviser to the Winston family, said in an email Thursday that he fully expects a lawsuit, characterizing it as a shakedown of a 20-yearold student by the woman and her attorneys. Jameis had consensual sex with the woman, Cornwell said. There will be no settlement. Michigan AD suggests Hoke safe for now: Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon said he prefers to wait until the end of the season before evaluating his coaches, suggesting Brady Hoke is safe for now at the helm of the schools storied football program. Brandon and Hoke have both received criticism for the handling of injured quarterback Shane Morris in last weekends loss to Minnesota and thats not the only issue facing the athletic director following a rough September. Michigan is 2-3 and showing little progress in Hokes fourth season as coach. Attendance at Michigan Stadium has dipped and there was even a student protest this week calling for Brandon to be fired. Hoke has been criticized for not immediately sitting Morris for the rest of the game after the sophomore took a hard hit in the fourth quarter of Saturdays 30-14 loss to Minnesota. Hoke said Monday he didnt see the hit on Morris, and that as far as he knew, that quarterback still hadnt been diagnosed with a concussion. Brandon released a statement about 12 hours later saying Morris had in fact been diagnosed with a probable concussion as of Sunday. Kentucky players charged with disorderly conduct: Kentucky freshmen Stanley Boom Williams, Dorian Baker, Drew Barker and Tymere Dubose have been charged with disor derly conduct for their involvement with air pistol shots being fired near a residence hall on the South campus Sunday night. The four have an Oct. 28 appearance in Fayette District Court in Lexington. The class B misdemeanor could result in up to 90 days in jail. The charges come three days after Kentucky coach Mark Stoops suspended the players for Saturday nights Southeastern Conference game against South Carolina for violating team rules. The four could face additional internal discipline for their parts in the incident.Lawsuit likely against Winston COLLEGE FOOTBALL NOTEBOOKMichigan AD hints Hoke safe for nowBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS has slowly gained steam, putting up 166 yards last week, but is still ranked No. 103 in the country. Senior Rashad Greenes 543 receiving yards ranks No. 5 in FBS, but no one else on the roster has more than 200 receiving yards. Heisman-winning quarterback Jameis Winston had 10 inter ceptions in 12 games last year, but has four already. He missed one game due to a suspension. No team is invincible, Wake Forest defensive lineman Zach Allen said. I feel like everybodys beatable. It all comes down to one or two plays a game. Florida States an explosive team. We stop the big plays, the game will be closer than most people think. The Seminoles defense has had its issues, also. Florida State has allowed 25.3 points per game, and 29.7 against FBS teams, to rank No. 66 in the country. Last week they missed more than 30 tackles, which Fisher said was the most since hes been in Tallahassee. FSU led the nation and set a school record with 26 interceptions in 2013, but have just one thus far. Those opportunities should be there against Demon Deacons freshman quarterback John Wolford, who has thrown 10 interceptions and six touchdowns. We respect them as a defense, Wake Forest receiver E.J. Scott said. They denitely have some good players but ... we watched the N.C. State tape ... and we saw what happened out there. Theres big plays happening all over the place. We look at that and just try to know well have a chance to make big plays as well. Things havent come easy, but Fisher said theres a positive side to that. The 2013 team may have been dominant in all three phases, but the 2014 version has carved a different identity. Great competitors. Dont inch. Like the moment, Fisher said. Were not going away. Were not going to go away. Receiver Jesus Bobo Wilson echoed those sentiments and said, We know were going to win. Thats what I like about our team. Fisher hopes the development of Wilson and young players on both sides of the ball will help eliminate the wild swings in production. First-year Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson knows the enormity of the challenge his team faces, even if the Seminoles have looked vulnerable for prolonged stretches. The Demon Deacons only have seven senior starters and are the only FBS team starting freshmen at both quarterback and center. Theyve been held to negative yards rushing in three of ve games and the program has lost nine consecutive games to Top 25 teams.FSUFROM PAGE 1 HOUSTON Brandon Alexander forced a game-saving fumble with 24 seconds left, and Justin Holman threw two touchdown passes to help UCF beat Houston 17-12 on Thursday night in the American Athletic opener for both teams. Alexander hit Houston quarterback Greg Ward Jr.s arm as he dived and stretched for the endzone pylon at the end of a 19-yard run, jarring the ball loose for a touchback. The ofcials call was conrmed by video review. The quarterback broke and I just knew his intent was not to pass, it was to run, Alexander said. So, he just dove. When he dove, I dove. Everything happens for a reason. I just laid on the ground real quick. Alexander also had nine tackles and an interception. Last year at home against Houston, Alexander broke up a fourth-down pass in the end zone to help the Knights hold off the Cougars.Any wins a good win, UCF coach George OLeary said. Its a good rst conference game. ... Houstons a good offense. I thought, except for a couple series, the back end played very well today and tackled well.Holman was 6 of 18 for 101 yards and ran for 32 yards on nine carries for the Knights (2-2).

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson earned a new title Thursday Senior Editor for The Players Tribune, a justlaunched website founded by retired baseball superstar Derek Jeter. And in his rst article, published Thursday morning, Wilson made a revelation that caught even teammates off-guard. I used to beat people up, Wilson wrote. Truthfully, I used to beat people up a lot. Wilson added that he was saved by my faith when I was 14 years old, and was able to start living for others instead of just myself. The fact he was once a bully was an admission greatly at odds with his current good-guy image. He said that he used to beat people up thats a surprise, cornerback Richard Sherman said. Obviously he said hes turned a different page in that book, but its still pretty interesting to see that. It was an admission Wilson felt was necessary to make clear his stance on domestic violence, an issue that has plagued the NFL in recent weeks. Referees union criticizes NFL: The union representing NFL on-field officials criticized the league for inconsistencies in grading calls, including two high-profile penalties from recent games. In a release, the NFL Referees Association says the NFL has caused confusion for NFL officials as to what the league does and doesnt want called.

Hours after the Bears posted an announcement on their Twitter account, the NFL confirmed the draft will move to Chicago on April 30-May 2. It will be held Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University. The draft was held in Chicago in 1938, 1942-44, 1951, and 1962-64. Palmer has dead nerve in shoulder: A visit to a spine specialist confirmed what already had been diagnosed: Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer has a dead nerve in his throwing shoulder. Palmer visited the specialist and said that there was no structural damage and no need for surgery. So he is back to trying a variety of methods to bring the nerve back to life. Palmer said the doctor told him its a one-in-hundred-thousand case of him falling on the shoulder in just the wrong way to put pressure on the nerve and shut it down. Deckers hamstring still tight: New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker sat out practice with tightness in his leg, leaving his status uncertain for the teams game at San Diego on Sunday. Hopefully, Decker will be all right, coach Rex Ryan said. Im hopeful hell play, but that was just something we felt, that it would be best to not have him practice today. Decker was limited Wednesday, but participated only in individual drills Thursday before sitting out the rest of practice as a precaution. No suspension yet for Cowboys Spillman: involved C.J. Spillman practiced with the Dallas Cowboys a day after his name surfaced in a sexual assault investigation. Not far away, Josh Brent was in a weight room working out on an exercise bike. Americas team is in the midst of an unusual public relations nightmare, with owner Jerry Jones embroiled in a sexual assault lawsuit even as he steadfastly supports Brent, who is back after his arrest two years ago in a drunken-driving crash that killed a teammate. The Cowboys are also standing behind Spillman, with coach Jason Garrett saying the special teams player will remain active because he hasnt been arrested or charged in a police investigation into his role in an alleged assault last month at a suburban Dallas hotel.BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS2015 NFL Draft will be held in ChicagoAP PHOTOGreen Bays Letroy Guion and Mike Daniels sack Minnesota quar terback Christian Ponder during Thursdays game.

Bach told The Associated Press that the International Olympic Committee is sticking to its commitments and we cannot and we do not want to change the regulations in the middle of the race. Oslo pulled out Wednesday after the Norwegian government declined to provide nancial guarantees for the games. Oslo became the fourth city to drop out, leaving Beijing and Almaty, Kazakhstan, as the only two remaining candidates. Bach said this was clearly a political decision taken by a minority coalition government. He said Oslo really missed a huge oppor tunity for sport and the people of Norway. The IOC will select the host city next July.COLLEGE BASKETBALLCalhoun joins ESPN: Hall of Fame coach Jim Calhoun will join ESPNs college basketball coverage this season. The 72-year-old Calhoun won three national championships at Connecticut in 1999, 2004 and 2011. He retired in 2012 after 26 years with the Huskies. The network said he will appear in the studio, conduct interviews, and call some games. Calhoun will make his debut Nov. 18 for the Champions Classic, the doubleheader featuring Michigan State, Duke, Kansas and Kentucky. Butler mens basketball coach Brandon Miller is taking a leave of absence for medical reasons. Athletic director Barry Collier said in a statement that assistant Chris Holtmann will serve as interim coach until Miller returns. Tennessee forward and Memphis transfer Dominic Woodson has received an NCAA waiver allowing him to play for his new team immediately rather than sitting out a year. Volunteers coach Donnie Tyndall announced Woodsons eligibility as Tennessee prepares to open practice Sunday. Tyndall said Woodson would have to lose weight in order to actually contribute much this season.YOUTH FOOTBALLFootball player death ruled freak accident: In Wading River, N.Y., the death of a 16-year-old varsity high school football player hours after an on-field collision during a game was a freak accident, the schools superintendent said. Steven Cohen, the superintendent of Shoreham-Wading River School District on Long Islands North Shore, offered his sympathies to the family of Tom Cutinella, who played linebacker and guard and was in his junior year. I think it was the result of a typical football play. It was just a freak accident, Cohen said. You know, the game involves contact and it was the result of a freak football play. The athletic director will lead the districts investigation into Cutinellas death, Cohen said, looking at every thing from the type of hit, to what kind of helmets and equipment Cutinella and other players were using. The medical examiner will determine the cause of death, though it appeared Cutinella suffered a head injury, officials said. Tom Cutinella was beloved by everyone who knew him, Cohen said in a statement he read at Thursdays news conference.SOCCERWambach leading charge to keep World Cup on grass: The push to get Canada to stage the Womens World Cup on grass instead of artificial turf is now a legal matter, with American star Abby Wambach and a group of players fully prepared to go forward zealously and aggressively in court to force a change, their lawyer said. The players, who have no plans to boycott next years tournament, allege gender discrimination because the mens World Cup is always staged on grass. A lawsuit was filed Wednesday at the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal, naming FIFA and the Canadian Soccer Association as defendants. Luis Suarez has been included in Uruguays 22-man squad for two international friendlies this month in Saudi Arabia and Oman. It will be his first selection for Uruguay since biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup.HOCKEYInvestor interested in Coyotes: The owners of the Arizona Coyotes are in discussions with a potential new investor to buy a stake in the team. The New York Post reported that IceArizona is in the process of selling a majority stake in the team to Philadelphia hedge fund manager Andrew Barroway.

Page 6 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, October 3, 2014 ST. PETERSBURG Venice High School jumped to a 22-0 lead after one quarter and coasted to a 57-27 victory in a District 6A-7 contest Thursday night. Venice signaled early that the game would be a rout. After producing a safety that made the score 9-0 in the rst quarter, Noah Montgomery returned the ensuing kick 78 yards for a score. Montgomery was one of six Indians to nd the end zone. If there was any thought that Dixie Hollins secured momentum going into halftime, Venice took just 33 seconds to get its rst score of the second half. Venice freshman Bryce Carpenter continued his strong debut year by rushing for 108 yards and two scores and throwing for 194 yards and two touchdowns. The last guy with that much (poise at quarterback for us) was Trey Burton, Venice coach John Peacock said of Carpenter. Hes a real quiet kid but the team saw what he could do and that he can do it at a really high level. After graduating, Burton went on to play at Florida. Carpenter and fullback Eric Imperante were the only Indians to score more than once. With the victory, the Indians improve to 6-0, 1-0. They return to action on Oct. 10 at home against Sarasota. Game time is 7 p.m. Tampa Bay Times didnt get them prepared tonight. The kids played hard. There were a few highlights. Anthony Stephens nished with 10 carries for 118 yards and two touchdowns, and Brennan Norus added 122 yards and a score for the Pirates (4-2, 0-1 in District 7A-11). But none of those yards meant as much as Moores plunge just before halftime did for Fort Myers (6-0, 1-0). Condence is the main thing for us, said Fort Myers quarterback Dylan DeGroot. That last drive (before halftime), when we put it in there with two seconds left, it felt like we had the world. If not the world at least an early lead in District 7A-11. DeGroot completed 13 of 18 passes for 167 yards and a touchdown. Port Charlotte quarterback Christian Coffelletto completed 11 of 14 passes for 140 yards, including a late 70-yard touchdown strike to Paulsin Heitter. Port Charlotte caught a break early when Moore fumbled the Green Waves fourth play from scrimmage, setting up the Pirates at the Fort Myers 34. It took Port Charlotte two plays to cash in, with Stephens 23-yard run around the right, then Norus 11-yard blast up the middle. Fort Myers answered with a seven-play, 80-yard drive, capped by Felixs 10-yard run to the left pylon. The last ve plays were all 10 yards or longer not representative of recent Port Charlotte defenses. The Green Wave added another score on their next possession a 4-yard run by Moore this time. From there, the Pirates were chasing. They pulled close on long touchdowns by Stephens a 24-yard Wildcat sprint and a 64-yard sweep but they never pulled even.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or email@example.comFORT MYERS 41, PORT CHARLOTTE 25Port Charlotte 13 6 0 6 25 Fort Myers 14 13 7 7 41 First quarter PC Brennan Norus 11 run (Andres Her nandez kick), 10:02.

The Manta Rays had their first lead of the match in the third set at 6-5 but quickly fell behind 15-6 when Beisner, Foley and Kaylee Brannon took control. Lemon Bay made it a 3-point game at 21-19 after Charlotte flubbed a few, but the Tarpons recovered quickly to end all hopes of a Game 4. We were so tired; This was a long week, Lemon Bay coach Stacy DeWolfe said. I knew that yesterday in practice. Next season, only two games a week, we cant do three. The legs, the shoulders, get worn out. Ryan led Lemon Bay with seven kills.SWEEPSFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTOS BY JENNIFER BRUNONorth Ports Christian Van Der Veer and Michael Maganpara fake a eld goal attempt to score a touchdown during Thursdays game against Lakewood Ranch at The Preserve in North Port.the North Port offense didnt get the ball back until there were 24.5 seconds left to on the clock. Innello threw three incompletions and an interception on the Bobcats final drive, finishing his first start of the season 14 of 27 passing for 201 yards and two touchdowns, including a 64-yard first-quarter strike to wide receiver Teddy Deas. He also carried the ball eight times for 34 yards. Christian Van Der Veer, who started North Ports rst ve games at quar terback, also appeared in the contest, throwing a 15-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Marquise Faison on a fake eld goal attempt near the end of the rst quarter. As far as running the offense, he looked calm, Detwiler said of Innello. I got to make sure that people understand, Mikey got to play on a dry eld today. So we really dont know what (Christian Van Der Veer) would have brought to the table. But at 1-4 coming into the game, we decided it was time to take a look at what we can do to increase our odds. And I think that was reective. We were in this ballgame. Though the game-winning touchdown was scored in the fourth, the key to Lakewood Ranchs win came in the third quarter. Even though the Bobcats ran 22 plays to the Mustangs four, they couldnt nd the end zone. Running back Matthew Laroche lost a fumble near the goal line on North Ports rst drive of the quarter, and its second drive ended when it couldnt convert on 4th-and-goal from the 2 yard line. The Bobcats likely missed senior Zefen Bruno on both those series. The bruising running back was suspended for Thursdays contest for some violations of team policy, and Detwiler said afterward that Bruno will miss at least one more game. We thought we had to take a chance down there and go for it on that fourth down, Detwiler said. The kids said something about, Lets kick a eld goal. But I didnt think that was a situation where a eld goal would make the difference. I told the kids, In our house, in a district game, youre telling me we cant get two yards? And they said, We can get it, coach. And we fell short on it.LAKEWOOD RANCH 28, NORTH PORT 21Lakewood Ranch 7 7 0 14 28 North Port 14 0 0 7 21 First quarter LR Justin Fischer 2 run (Patrick Atkins kick) 8:14 NP Marquice Faison 15 pass from Chris tian VanDerVeer (Michael Magnapara kick) 45.3 NP Teddy Deas 64 pass from Mike Innel lo (Michael Magnapara kick) 0.0 Second quarter LR Darren Lowery 7 run (Patrick Atkins kick) 5:05 Fourth quarter LR Trevor Losada 48 pass from Chad Rex (Patrick Atkins kick) 9:04 NP Stantley Thomas 18 pass from Mike Innello (Michael Magnapara kick) 5:27 LR Darren Lowery 1 run (Patrick Atkins kick) 32.9BOBCATSFROM PAGE 1North Port High Schools Matthew Laroche carries against Lakewood Ranch on Thursday at The Preserve in North Port.

Leroy Bailey used to be homeless, and now he is again but this time its on purpose. Bailey, 52, who hails from Virginia Beach, Va., became voluntarily homeless June 30 as he set out from his home to walk the perimeter of the United States to raise money to build a homeless shelter in his area. By Sunday, he had made it to Bayshore Live Oak Park in Charlotte Harbor, where he shared the story of his journey. You aint doin nothin eitherBailey has been working with PIN (People In Need) Ministry for about ve years. PIN is a Christian-based nonprot that focuses on serving the homeless. For Bailey, working with the homeless is a personal mission. Thirty years ago, when his foster brother was killed by a drunken driver at age 19, Baileys drinking habits got the better of him as he struggled to deal with the loss, and he became homeless in Buffalo, N.Y., in the process. Between knowing rsthand the struggles homeless people face and trying to help with ongoing unmet needs for the homeless in his area, Bailey became discouraged. I work with the homeless, and I got frustrated with the fact that a lot of people said they would build shelters and theyre not. Bailey, a member of the Church of God based in Cleveland, Tenn., went straight to the top, and shared his frustrations privately with God. The response he got was personal.Walk the lineBy NICOLE NOLESPORT CHARLOTTE HERALD EDITORHERALD PHOTO BY ROBERT NELSONLeroy Bailey walks down Parmely Street in Charlotte Harbor on Sunday on his way back to Bayshore Live Oak Park, where he spent the night before resuming his journey by foot. Bailey is on a 10,465-mile trek that will take him the circumference of the United States all to help raise awareness and funds for a homeless shelter in Virginia Beach, Va.

Herald Page 4 Friday, October 3, 2014 pirate page Pirate Page contributors are students at Port Charlotte High School. The content displayed on this page is part of grading requirements for Curtis Williams journalism class. Send feedback to Curtis_ Williams@ccps.k12.fl.us.The 2013-14 school year is under way at Port Charlotte High School, and the Key Clubs Third Annual Red Out Event is next Friday night at Pirates Cove. Key Club, along with several other clubs on the PCHS campus, are promoting this event while raising money for the American Heart Association. By purchasing a Red Out Its My Life T-shirt for just $10, you will be supporting the cause in their goal to raise awareness and help fund the ght against heart disease. The T-shirts are being sold each day during all three lunch periods in Champs Caf until Oct. 10. Shirts will also be sold at home football games. Those who purchase shirts are encouraged to show their support and wear them to the Homecoming game that night. According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the number one cause of death for both men and women in United States. If something isnt done soon, heart disease will be the leading cause of death throughout the world by 2020. For the PCHS family, one of our own has been affected by heart disease, as it has taken the life of Key Club sponsor/ science teacher Julie Clarks grandmother. This is just one of the reasons why she is so passionate about doing everything she can to help. This Red Out Event is very important because heart disease affects so many people, Clark said. This (American Heart Association) is a great cause with all of the money raised from this project going to research. Not only has it affected her life, but also the lives of the family members and friends of the one million who pass away annually. PCHS Assistant Principal Allison Portwood has been announcing facts about heart disease during the morning announcements each day. Signs posted around campus inform students and staff of the importance of the American Heart Associations Red Out event. The Red Out letters encourage everyone to: Recognize the warning signs of a heart attack and stroke. Educate yourself on how to live a heart healthy life. Dedicate time and effort to reaching your health goals. Orchestrate a health plan and stick to it. Understand the risk factors of heart disease and stroke. Teach others what you have learned. This is an event that requires a community effort, not just Port Charlotte High School. We ask for those who can, to help those who are affected by heart disease by donating as little or as much money you can.Red Out Event next Friday By JOSH CIGNARALE and NATHALIE VEJARPCHS JUNIORS THIS WEEK AT PCHSFriday, Oct. 3 One-Day Yearbook Sale (Auditorium) Periods 1-4 Girls Cross Country Florida Runners Club at Chain Of Lakes Saturday, Oct. 4 Swim Teams County Championship at Oyster Creek Pool Boys Cross Country Florida Runners Club at Chain Of Lakes Pirate JV Volleyball Tournament at PCHS gyms Monday, Oct.6 HOMECOMING WEEK Mike & Ike Twin Day Boys & Girls Golf Tournament at Sarasota Bay Country Club Swim Teams vs Evangelical Christian 6 p.m. Senior Night Volleyball vs DeSoto 6 & 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 7 HOMECOMING WEEK Nerd Day Nothing But Nets, gym 2 p.m. Powder Puff Football at Pirates Cove 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 8 HOMECOMING WEEK Warhead Wednesday Color Day Thursday, Oct. 9 HOMECOMING WEEK Sweet Dreams Pajama Day Homecoming Block Party at Pirates Cove 5 p.m. PHOTO BY NATHALIE VEJARLEFT: Several students in Julie Clarks science class show o the Red Out Its My Life shirts that are being sold to raise money for the American Heart Association.

Herald Page 6 Friday, October 3, 2014 Q I need a suitable place to let my dragon fruit climb. Would a mature live oak tree be a suitable place for it to climb? Id like to have better access to reach ripened fruit. Troy, Port Charlotte A Hylocereus undatus and other species and hybrids are commonly called dragon fruit, strawberry pear, night-blooming cereus or pitaya. An ideal support for this plant in the cactus family would normally not be a large shade tree. Better to keep it closer to the ground by growing on a large, strong trellis or pergola that can handle the heavy weight of its stems. Dragon fruit is a fast-growing, mostly tropical cactus with stems that may have three to ve sides. Stems stay green, eshy and are jointed and branching. Its lateral branches would quickly grow into the canopy of a shade tree, and fruit well beyond your reach. A simple, but strong, horizontal trellis or arbor would need to be constructed to hold several hundred pounds of stem weight. The weight of its stems can cause tree limbs to break. Choose a sunny, frost and freeze-free spot in the yard. Branching stems produce showy, fragrant owers followed by edible, eshy, scaled berries about four inches thick. For a home landscape, a single post or palm snag could be used as your trellis. Once stems are tied and trained onto the post, place a side-support structure near the top. This structure has to be very strong to hold the stems weight. The trellis will be shaped like a T, or an umbrella. Avoid using any wires for supports unless they can be covered with hose pipe. Plant one or two, 6to 15-inch stem sections around the posts base. Prepare the stem for planting by slicing a slanted cut at one end and leaving it to cure (dry and heal) for seven to eight days before planting. Some types of dragon fruit require cross pollination. For a list, go to: http://edis.ifas.u.edu/ pdfles/HS/HS30300.pdf. Once rooted, train the cactus to climb the post. Remove any side branches or lateral stems while the main stem is climbing. Tie the main stem to the post. Once the main stem reaches the top, let it grow along a trellis frame. Or cut the tip to induce branching. Tie off these branches, allowing them to hang down to ower and produce fruit. Q What might have happened to my beautyberry shrub? It now has yellow, mottled leaves. Some but not all of the new shoots and leaves are wilted or turning brown. Last year this native shrub looked perfect in my yard. Jean H., Port Charlotte A Beautyberry, Callicarpa amer icana, is a beautiful and Florida-Friendly, native shrub. Your shrubs symptoms may be showing damage from a green peach aphid. This aphid is known to transmit a deadly virus into beauty berry called cucumber mosaic virus (CMV). Chances are an infected aphid has already come and gone in your yard. Aphids feed on new, succulent growth. A sucking insect, an infected aphid then can transmit this deadly virus into an otherwise healthy plant. CMV has numerous host plants, including many fruits, vegetables and herbaceous ornamentals. CMV damage is difcult to detect early enough to prevent. Often a beautyberry with the disease will look normal for the rst few months, and shows symptoms with age. An infected plant will have leaves that are distorted, discolored or damaged severely. Some or all of the branches will have leaves that appear smaller, stippled or severely stunted. First, I would try pruning out dead or dying stems, and watching its regrowth. If the symptoms persist on newly emerging shoots, the plant likely has CMV and needs to be removed. Remove all parts of the plant, including the roots. By doing this, you prevent the disease from persisting and spreading to healthy plants in other parts of the yard. Avoid the temptation to propagate or grow any new plants from beautyberry seeds that dropped off an infected plant. CMV is transmitted into ripening seeds. Any nursery-raised replacement plant you buy should be free of this virus. To slow the spread of the disease, keep any weeds in your yard and on surrounding lots from going to seed. Also, disinfect garden or pruning tools after using them on infected plants. Brush tools clean of dirt and debris. Use household bleach (ex: Clorox) of 25 percent solution (1 part bleach plus 3 parts water). Learn more about this disease at http://lee.ifas.u.edu/FYN/ FYNPubs/Beautyberry_FYN.pdf.

HERALD PHOTO BY ROBERT NELSONRIGHT: Sunday is my day of rest, says Leroy Bailey, I go to church and relax my body. Bailey, pictured here with his pack containing the only personal items he takes with him on his journey, has walked 1,344 miles of the United States perimeter since June 30. With luck, Bailey hopes to complete his journey within the next 18 months. To show your support, you can follow him on Facebook at www. facebook.com/ leroy.bailey.79.God told me, You aint doin nothin either. And when Bailey asked in prayer what he should do, the answer was clear. Walk around the USA.Walking the talkOn June 30, Bailey started his journey from Virginia Beach, leaving behind the comforts of home to follow Gods instructions. While he makes his trek around the perimeter of the country, his wife Lucille holds down the home fort with her 10-year-old grandson. We celebrated our 20th anniversary before we left, Bailey said. So far, he has walked more than 1,300 miles, and crossed the Everglades in mid-September. By Saturday night, he made it to Punta Gorda, where he waited out the rainstorm at Dunkin Donuts on U.S. 41 before trying to nd a place to sleep for the night. Most of the time, he tries to sleep behind churches, so he wont be disturbed. While the places he sleeps may differ from night to night, the publics opin ion about the homeless remains the same. Peoples perception is that homeless people are drunks, but a lot of them dont drink. Many cant afford a home on their disability or Social Security checks. A large percentage also have untreated mental illnesses. Some are veterans. Sgt. Hernandez, a Marine veteran who was homeless for ve years, gave Bailey a canteen and the hat he now wears on his walks, so the Marine can travel with him in spirit. Ive gotten a lot of help from regular folks. Im really doing this on the kindness of strangers, Bailey said. Although there is a need for the shelters Bailey is walking to help build, many homeless feel uncomfortable staying at shelters. Bed bugs and thefts are a concern, as well as feeling safe among strangers. Imagine sleeping next to 90 people you dont know, Bailey said about bunk-style sleeping arrangements. We treat homeless animals better than that. Back at home, CEO Bob Roth from Servants of God Ministries collects the funds Bailey raises in a restricted account. He has raised about $360 while they wait for ofcial 501(c)(3) status. For more information, visit www.servantsofgodministries.com.

They nished 0-4 but at least they found what they believe to be is their starting lineup. We got to see a lot of what we consider to be our starting lineup. We know who can handle the pressure and who cant, said Pirates Head Coach Lacee Nina. There was plenty of opportunity for pressure as the Pirates began the day playing Lemon Bay. The Mantas and Pirates split the rst two sets, but after leading the Mantas in the nal set, they let the game and match slip away for a Manta win. Their next two matches wouldnt get any easier as they played Cardinal Mooney and Sarasota Christian, who nished second and third behind the Charlotte Tarpons. In the nal match of the day, the Pirates hooked up with DeSoto County. The match proved to be the same as in their rst match of the day. They beat the Bulldogs in the rst set, but lost the next two sets to nish the day winless. We just couldnt nish the matches. He got ahead of Lemon Bay and lost, and then after the break we came back against two very good teams but we played them tough. Then against DeSoto County we again couldnt nish them off after beating them in the rst game. We have got to learn how to nish, added Nina.Pirates struggle at North Port tournamentBy STEVE KNAPPHERALD SPORTS WRITER HERALD PHOTOS BY STEVE KNAPPThe Port Charlotte Pirates warm up for their game against Cardinal Mooney at the North Port JV Volleyball Tournament Sept. 20.

She added, We are in a retirement community, many of our ne residents get ill, have an accident and become hospitalized. Going back home is our departments concern. We have, currently, 30 persons involved in our Homemaker Program.

USPS 743170 The Sun is published daily by Sun Coast Media Group, Inc., 23170 Harborview Road, Charlotte Harbor, FL 33980-2198. When I was a little girl, my grandmother used to ask how I wanted to make a difference in the world. She wasnt looking for a declaration of career choice or a list of extracurricular activities that sparked my interests. Rather, she was searching out my passions, trying to gure out how I would seek to improve the world. Like most children, you could say there was an ebb and ow to my answers, with change being the only constant. During my Girl Scout days, I would usually talk of cleaning up the shores, roadways and parks, eliminating the trash that was carelessly tossed to the ground. Following a friends terrifying brush with death, my middle school years were focused on bicycle safety, eventually leading me to draft a proposal arguing for stricter adolescent helmet laws to come out of Tallahassee. As I grew older and became exposed to other issues, my interests became varied. High school volunteer hours were spent at nursing homes, daycares, animal shelters and serving as a peer mentor to homeless teens. By the time I got into college, my friends knew they could always count on me to help them raise awareness, funds or run a few miles in the name of their cause of choice. However, I still didnt have one for myself. It wasnt until my grandmother received a very grim diagnosis of advanced cancer that I stumbled into my passion. Before her, I had known people with cancer, even losing distant relatives to the disease. However, cancer had never hit this close to home, and it was an awful, lonely pain knowing there was nothing I could do to save her. I dealt with my heartache by taking action, rst by walking for various Relay for Life events and later by getting involved with fundraising efforts to help fund research for a cure. I learned that if I kept it up, perhaps I would be part of a group of people who could save someone else from knowing the pain cancer can cause. Thats something I think is worth ghting for each and every day. Thats my passion. My plea to you, Punta Gorda, is to nd a cause that speaks to your heart and become passionate about it. Devote your time and energy into making a difference, be it sprucing up community gardens, visiting with veterans, reading to young children, spending time with the elderly or taking a shelter pup for a walk in the Florida sunshine. Your passion will not only change you, it will change the world around you for the better.Devote time, energy into a cause Pamela Staik PGH EditorPamela Staik is the editor of the Punta Gorda Herald.

Here, she was greeted to a surprise birthday party, surrounded by her friends, family and lots of love. I was in a great mental state and a very good spiritual spot, Presseller said, thinking back to that summer. In fact, life was going so well that when it came time for her annual mammogram, she considered skipping a year. Presseller had always gone faithfully for the exam every year, but she didnt have any symptoms. Surely missing one year wouldnt hurt anything, she told herself. Still, Presseller forced herself to have the test done, a decision that shell never regret. After all the typical mammogram images were taken, the radiologist asked to take another view. Then the doctor showed her a comparison of the days shots with ones from the previous year, pointing out how many more calcications she now had in her breasts. Breast calcications are most often benign, but some, according to the Mayo Clinic website, www.mayoclinic.org, may look suspicious because of their tight clustering and irregular shapes. These calcications may be cancerous and merit additional testing. The doctors recommendation: a biopsy to check for cancer. I said a prayer, thanking God for my being in a place where I could accept whatever happened, Presseller recalled. She felt that a cancer diagnosis would be much easier to accept at her age than had she been in her 30s. Unfortunately, the biopsy did nd cancerous cells, and Presseller was diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ, one of the most common forms of breast cancer. This diagnosis means that the cancer started in the milk duct and has stayed in place, according to www.breastcancer.org. However, the doctor was not able to get clear margins from the surgery. Presseller was told that, in her case, further biopsies were not advisable, and she would have better results with a double mastectomy. Although DCIS itself is typically a noninvasive cancer, it tends to recur years later. Presseller went forward with the surgery, spending two nights in the hospital for that surgery. Two more surgeries followed to complete her reconstruction. Today, Presseller goes for regular checkups and goes for an annual follow-up of lung X-rays, where breast cancer often metastasizes, or spreads. Many physicians recommend chest X-rays as a means of monitoring patients after breast cancer, and, to date, she has received good reports each time. Despite undergoing a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgeries, Presseller describes her experience with breast cancer as mild. Surely, her positive attitude had much to do with her acceptance of her cancer diagnosis and determination to ght it. She also knows the shock of being diagnosed with cancer even though she didnt exhibit any symptoms. Her story is all the more reason for people to go in for their annual exams, never skipping one because they feel healthy. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and it is important to Presseller to remind women to get their annual mammograms. If you get a cancer diagnosis, dont wait, even if your doctor tells you to, Presseller said. She knows rsthand of women who waited and their outcomes werent as positive as hers. Get a second opinion, she added. Presseller knows, too, the fear and uncertainty of being newly diagnosed, so she is always willing to talk to people in that situation.

The framing shop is also an art gallery and gift shop, featuring digital art note cards, fabric collages and found art artwork with 3-D objects that make images come alive.

For more than 25 years, Sea Grape Gallery has introduced art to the Punta Gorda community through its cooperative business concept. The gallery, located at 113 W. Marion Ave., showcases only the work of member artists and select guest artists, with the gallerys day-to-day operations handled by the artist members. Through the years, the number of artists in the gallery has changed, with the gallery listing 19 current artist biographies on its website, www.seagrapegallery.com. These artists have helped the gallery grow over the years, and part of this is due to the monthly Artist of the Month program, which is meant to introduce the artists and their work to the public. Each month, the work of the featured artist is prominently displayed in the gallerys windows and front panels, as well as on the gallerys website. The featured artist also demonstrates his or her work during Gallery Walk, which is from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the third Thursday of the month. The most recent Artist of the Month was Sandy OGrady, whose work was displayed from September until Oct. 2. OGrady is a local businesswoman who has found her passion in working with animals and creating pine needle basketry. Owner of Suncoast One Title, OGrady nds time to volunteer at the Octagon Wildlife Sanctuary, 41660 Horseshoe Road, Punta Gorda, where she feeds the large animals, lectures and handles publicity for the nonprot. Her love of animals and Octagon show in the basketry she creates when she uses feathers, nuts, seeds and even tiger whiskers in her work. No, I dont pluck them, OGrady said of the tiger whiskers. I wait until they shed their whiskers. The bottoms of the baskets are of pottery that she creates at the Visual Arts Center, 210 Maud St., Punta Gorda. Everything in her baskets comes from nature and her own creative hands. In the 16 years that Sea Grape Gallery has offered the Artist of the Month program, visitors to the gallery have enjoyed exquisite paintings, sculpture, jewelry, weaving and pottery. Kate Staber showed her delicate brush paintings during August, while May and June featured the work of the late Ray Stoy. He passed away at the age of 90, and he was instrumental in starting the monthly program. The rest of this month will feature watercolorist Jim Beech, who creates paintings of old boats and barns. His work was recently shown in a Florida Watercolor Society exhibit. In November, Beverly Yankwitt, an abstract, mixed-media artist, will be honored. Yankwitt is past president of the Arts & Humanities Council of Charlotte County, and she teaches at the Visual Arts Center. Finally, in December, Bonnie Benande will showcase her hand-thrown pottery, which blends functionality with art. The public is invited and encouraged to visit Sea Grape Gallery in downtown Punta Gorda. The artists are the owners, and they are happy to discuss their art with visitors. The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. The gallery stays open until 8 p.m. on the third Thursday of the month for Gallery Walk.

Friday, October 3, 2014 Herald Page 11 Art Club draws interest at Charlotte HighBy ALEXIS WHITECHS JUNIOR There are dozens of clubs at Charlotte High School, but the Art Club catches the eyes of students like no other. Art instructor Renee Massolio is the founder of the organization, and it is something she started during her rst year at CHS. All these years later, Massolio still has the same passion for the club that she had when she started teaching at CHS. Art Club has created many fond memories for her, but one memory stands out the most to Massolio. It happened in 2004, when she received approval to have the students paint the back steps of the portables following Hurricane Charley. Each teacher was carefully interviewed, and the paintings on each teachers steps were a representation of their class, Massolio said. Other projects offer positive memories for club members, too. The students in Art Club meet after school on Mondays to discuss various projects, including the Halloween party at Sallie Jones Elementary School. Here, the high schoolers provide face-painting services and carve pumpkins. We try to assist other schools, not just Charlotte High, Massolio stated. In past years, the CHS football eld is painted during homecoming week. That is a Tarpon tradition for the Art Club, and club president Breonna Burke was a part of the design team last year. She plans to do it again this year. Burke is a popular artist around school, and some of her work is displayed in the art rooms and the hallway display cases. Three words I would use to describe my personal art would be crazy, weird and fun, Burke said. She enjoys being able to express herself through the club. Each week, the club sees an average of 20 students in the meeting, but more have been known to gather. Every week is different, but I look forward to every Monday, Burke said. Savana Burdick-Perez, a junior, has been a member of the CHS Art Club since she was a freshman. She enjoys the club and what it brings to each member. Art Club is a great way to meet new people people you never thought you would talk to, but its a lot of fun, she said. Emily Blaine, a senior, looks forward to her rst year in the organization. She has heard many great things and decided to take part in the CHS Art Club and see what it offers. Im excited for the eld trips and dont know what to expect, Blaine said.Tarpon leaders look forward to new challengesBy TYRA DROUILLARDCHS SOPHOMOREThe Tarpon Leadership Academy has helped better the Charlotte High School community for years. It is cur rently sponsored by Ira Kincaid III. TLA is a service club, and its members are ready and willing to take part in school and community events in an effort to make a difference in the world around them. The club participates in several school-related events, like the schools talent show and the Punta Gorda Relay for Life event for the American Cancer Society. Although ninth-graders cannot join the organization, the club is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors. We have something big were very excited about, Kincaid said. Jeff Damico, the assistant principal in charge of student support and testing, has set the group up to work with TEAM Punta Gorda, a grassroots community program and nonprot in the city of Punta Gorda. Students from the leadership academy will form a council of students to help out with TEAMs various projects. Basically they are going to go out and take part in community events. Do everything from the mayors ofce to the chamber of commerce, street dance, whatever, Kincaid explained. Not only do students in TLA strive to improve the community, but they also work to better themselves. Kincaid has integrated the books and teachings of Stephen and Sean Covey, authors of various Habits books, into the club. Kincaid said one of the most important habits is to begin with the end in mind, meaning have a plan and stick to it. Sophomore Nicole Schaff, 15, feels TLA members are hard workers and dedicated to the club. She said Kincaid makes sure that pride is taken with every task the students perform. She is very excited for what the group will bring this year. She said, I chose TLA because it teaches you responsibility, integrity and hard work, all of which make you a good leader.Frisbee catches on at CharlotteBy AMBER JELEN CHS SENIORMany clubs at Charlotte High School have become associated with Tarpon traditions, and one is currently vying for the chance to make a permanent name for itself in the schools history. What club is it? Ultimate Frisbee, thats what, said David Burchers, who serves as club president and is a senior. The Ultimate Frisbee Club was introduced to Charlotte High during the last school year, and it seems to be a huge hit with the students this year. While most people think Frisbee is just a game played in the back yard, many high schools and colleges have formed teams that travel to compete with other schools. Sponsor Keith Larkins has tried his hardest to encourage all students, boys and girls of any grade, to join the club. There are about 20 students signed up so far, Larkins said. We play outside on the soccer elds every Friday, and will, hopefully, eventually, compete against other schools and in tournaments.Tarpon students share school news PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG PG H H H TARPON PAGE PUNTA GORDA HERALD PHOTO BY AMBER JELENKeith Larkins is the sponsor of the Ultimate Frisbee Club at Charlotte High School.
