When the Four Points by Sher aton hotel project was pitched a decade ago, it was part of a one-two punch that also included a residential component in a separate building along the Peace River, and an 82-slip marina. The nancial crisis and subsequent recession put any thought of building condominiums on hold for the propertys owner Jose Suriol, but his company, Harbor Resort & Yacht Club LLC, recently has engaged RE/MAX Alliance Group of Bradenton to market the 4-acre parcel to prospective developers. The marketing pitch, which began two weeks ago, already has triggered phone calls to Stan Rutsteins ofce. We just put it out to market, and weve already had a pretty good reaction to it. We have developers who are really interested in looking at it, Rutstein said. Listed at $7 million, the site enjoys a city-approved development plan and a submerged lands lease for the proposed marina. The original plan called for a 114-unit ve-story condominium, a restaurant, retail space and a garage on the waterfront parcel. The existing plans for the ve-story garage include a rooftop pool and other amenities. Rutstein said the ready-to-go entitlements, location and existing amenities make it an attractive property. Waterfront, waterfront, waterfront, he said. Its very tough to get waterfront at a good price, with a marina attached to it, next to a beautiful hotel. One thing that wont change is TTs Tiki Hut, the popular watering hole along the Harborwalk. Rutstein said any prospective developers could work around it. With good reason. The marketing materials for the property report the average monthly revenue for the outside bar and restaurant is $160,000. Four Points owns and operates the Tiki bar, paying a $3,000 monthly rent. Rutstein cited growing activity in the Southwest Florida condominium market for the renewed marketing push on the Punta Gorda property. Rutstein also is handling outparcels near the former Loop property, recently annexed into the city. Suriol could not be reached for comment. The 32 single-family home-building permits issued by the city of North Port in August clearly were an outlier, as new permits jumped 159 percent to 83 in September, more in line with the 71 permits issued in July. When completed, the new homes will add another $20.9 million to the citys property valuation. Combined with the July and August home construction, the city added $44.9 million of residential property in the third quarter. Last months permits represent a 113 percent increase over the 39 permits issued in September 2013. How much longer will Charlotte County have a Sears and a Kmart? The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that Sears Holdings Corp., the parent company of both ailing retailers, is selling the bulk of its 51 percent interest in Sears Canada to shore up its nances as the critical holiday shopping season approaches. The sale of its Canadian stake follows a $400 million loan to Sears by the hedge fund owned by Sears largest stockholder, Edward Lampert. The Journal reported Sears lost $1 billion in the rst half of 2014, and $6.4 billion over the past 42 months. Brian Gleason is editorial page editor for the Sun Newspapers.

PUNTA GORDA An advocacy group for people with disabilities prevailed this week after more than three years of wrangling to get a handcranked bicycle added to the citys popular bike-loaner program. The Americans with Disabilities Act Advisory Council of Charlotte County scored a small yet signicant victory after the city approved the purchase of a $750 three-wheeled, hand-operated bicycle for paraplegics. The bicycle will be added to the eet at Laishley Marina, one of six locations across Punta Gorda that play host to the bicycle-loaner program. It will be paid for from the City Councils contingency fund, and reimbursed from donations raised by Team Punta Gorda, the civic group that founded the free bicycle program years ago as a way to attract visitors to the community, and to market the city as a bicycle-friendly community.

See the story, page 13.At age 54, former Punta Gorda resident Denise Isaacs suffered from a slew of ailments, including bipolar disorder, anxiety and chronic abdominal pain. Yet Isaacs, who was wanted in Charlotte County for violating her probation for shoplifting, was crammed into a stuffy transport van with 10 other shackled inmates for a nearly 1,000-mile trip from Kentucky to Punta Gorda. I knew she wouldnt be able to make a trip like that because of her weakness and pain, said her daughter, Kallie Isaacs of Lexington, Ky. But her family never believed that the rigors of the journey might kill her. Denise Isaacs was found slumped over dead inside the van oper ated by Tennessee-based Prisoner Transportation Services of America, through a contract with the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce during a stop at a West Miami-Dade Taco Bell restaurant. Her case last month offers a window into the little-publicized world of private inmate-transport companies. And it now has spurred a law enforcement investigation into whether the transport ofcers provided her with proper care and attention during the grueling two-day road trip. According to sources with knowledge of the investigation, Denise is believed to have acted strangely throughout the trip appar ently suffering hallucinations while drinking little water and refusing a meal during a Inmate death in transit raises questionsBy DAVID OVALLEMIAMI HERALDINMATE | 5PORT CHARLOTTE Preliminary test results for the Sunshine Lake/ Sunrise Waterway point to natural causes for the blue-green algae contamination that threatened the water system. With about 80 percent of the data available from the six-month analysis, scientists now believe a high level of phosphorus in the surrounding soil is to blame for the algal outbreak of ve years ago. High concentrations of nitrogen, the other main nutrient believed to be responsible for feeding the algal bloom, were not found in water samples. However this particular strain of algae, known as cyanobacteria, has the ability to make its own nitrogen from the air. This explanation would rule out as the likely source for the algae human-related causes, such as fertilizers and sewage, which would produce equally high levels of phosphorus and nitrogen, according to a new report. Researchers have determined that the local geology, which possesses elevated phosphorus, is the likely loading source of the nutrient into the lake and waterway via stormwater runoff. The phosphorus required for the bloom to occur, we believe, is coming from the natural, phosphorus-rich soil, said David Tomasko, a biologist with Environmental Science Associates, who is working with the Atkins environmental rm, the project consultant. Moreover, Tomasko does not expect the ndings to change once all the data is evaluated by the end of the year. So far, everything weve seen is very consistent, he said.

Our Town Page 2 C The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 PUNTA GORDA Kenny Scribner is wise beyond his years and a very compassionate young man. This past summer, when the 13-year-old eighth-grader from Punta Gorda Middle School was playing in a Jammers basketball game, sponsored by the Punta Gorda Police Department, he displayed an incredible act of sportsmanship. When Cole Bissonette, a player on the opposing team, missed a shot at the basket, Kenny retrieved the ball and passed it back to him. On the fth try, Bissonette, who suffers from cerebral palsy and a motor deciency on his left side, proudly put the ball through the hoop to score. It was the rst time in his life he had ever scored in a game. I noticed that he did not get in the game and play a lot, and I wanted to see him play and not sit out, Scribner said. PGPD Lt. Joe King, founder of the Jammers basketball team, later said, There was not a dry eye in the gymnasium. This week, during the October Do The Right Thing ceremony in the Punta Gorda City Council chambers, Scribner was recognized for his unselsh act, and for demonstrating kindness to someone less fortunate than himself. What a remarkable young man to put the feelings of another so high on his list of priorities, PGPD Ofcer Larry Schrader said. If we look in the dictionary for a denition of sportsmanship, I am sure that Kennys name will be there for years to come. Created in 1995, the DTRT program instills positive attitudes and self-esteem in Charlotte County students by rewarding them for per forming acts of heroism, kindness, honesty and, as in Kennys case, compassion. Five local youths are selected by a committee and are presented trophies; certicates of excellence from local, state and federal ofcials; a key to the city; gift cards from area businesses and restau rants; backpacks lled with school supplies; and a ticket to the 2015 Florida International Air Show. When Deep Creek Elementary School second-grader Landon Payne, 8, and his brother Gavin, 6, a rst-grader at the same school, witnessed their grandmother pass out, the brothers immediately went into action. The boys called 911 and calmly advised the operator of their grandmothers condition, and medical assistance quickly was dispatched. Their quick thinking, which they had learned at a school assembly, probably saved their grandmothers life. Without knowing if their grandmother had a life-threatening situation, the boys quick response, for children their age, was amazing, Schrader said. Erin Anderson, a rst-grade student at Kingsway Elementary School, was described as a friend to the environment when she was introduced at Thursdays DTRT ceremony. Although just 6 years old, her nomination form said at a recent Earth Day celebration, She insisted on going around the neighborhood and collecting trash that was on the side of the road. Erin was acknowledged, despite her young age, for being aware of the detrimental effect discarded trash has on the environment and, most importantly, keeping her neighborhood clean. Recognizing a students honesty has been paramount since the DTRT program began nearly 20 years ago and Sebastian Daubner, a sixth-grader at L.A. Ainger Middle School, recently demonstrated just that when he found a wallet under his seat on the school bus. Although lled with cash and a gift card, the 11-yearold decided to turn the wallet in to the bus driver, who then gave it to its owner, who was very appreciative. Sebastian attended a program titled Habits, where honesty is one of the seven virtues taught to students in Charlotte County. When he discovered the wallet, what he learned through the program prompted him to ask himself how he would feel if he had misplaced his wallet. All of you are setting an example to others, Charlotte County Commissioner Chris Constance said. That is an integral part of leadership.

PUNTA GORDA The Charlotte High School student who was critically injured after being struck by a box truck Thursday morning in Port Charlotte remained on life support late Friday, after authorities originally thought he wouldnt survive a trip to the hospital. In the morning announcements (at Charlotte High), his condition was mentioned to the student body, and they asked for a moment of silence, Charlotte County Public Schools spokesman Mike Riley said Friday. Angel Martinez-Garcia, 17, was walking just after 6:30 a.m. on Easy Street near Catherine Avenue, in the Parkside area, to his school bus stop, when a box truck hit him, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The teen was own to Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers with life-threatening injuries. The FHP investigation remained open Friday, and no charges had been issued. Counselors and a psychologist remain available at CHS for staff, students or parents, Riley said.Moment of silence for injured studentSTAFF REPORT PHOTO PROVIDED BY WINK NEWSAngel Martinez-Garcia. EL JOBEAN A fisherman remained hospitalized Friday after falling into the swift currents of the Myakka River Thursday morning and almost drowning. Authorities have not released his name, but he is estimated to be in his 40s. The man was fishing from the El Jobean Fishing Pier around 11:15 a.m. Thursday when he went over a waist-high rail into the river below. The Charlotte County Sheriffs Office began an investigation into the incident and said the man was trying to reel in a big fish. He was swept more than 100 yards by the rivers current before some passersby in a boat picked him up and began CPR. The victim, who had gone into cardiac arrest, was rushed by ambulance to Fawcett Memorial Hospital in Port Charlotte in critical condition. Charlotte County Fire/ EMS spokeswoman Dee-Hawkins Garland said the man remained hospitalized Friday, but she could not provide specific information on his health status. The sheriffs incident report had not been completed Friday. CCSO spokeswoman Debbie Bowe said, due to the mans condition, authorities were keeping the case open in the event they had to turn it into a death investigation.Fisherman remained hospitalized FridaySTAFF REPORT | COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFSGolf tourney fundraiser plannedNew Operation Cooper Street will hold its second annual golf outing at 8:30 a.m. Oct. 11 at St. Andrews South Golf Club, 1901 Deborah Drive, Punta Gorda.

But now its going to feel like fall well, fall in Florida anyway. Sorry, no changing of the leaves. However, at least the humidity is supposed to be just about gone by Sunday, and temperatures that afternoon should be around five to 10 degrees cooler than they were Friday, according to the National Weather Service. Look for a sunny day with highs in the mid-80s. The seasons first cold front does mean a mostly cloudy Saturday, with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Heres the rest of the Saturday forecast: High in the upper 80s, with northwest winds of 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 50 percent. It should start clearing by the evening, with lows in the mid-60s and isolated showers. North winds, 5 to 10 mph.Cool front on the waySTAFF REPORTbikes all donated by local businesses that are used by thousands of visitors each year. In scal year 2014, more than 4,000 people checked out bikes a 35 percent increase over the previous year, said city planner Mitchell Austin, who serves as a liaison between the city and Teams BicycleFriendly Community Committee. Its been incredibly popular, Austin said of the program. However conspicuously missing from the eet: bicycles for people who cant pedal with their feet. Ronald Muschong, founder of the ADA Advisory Council, spent more than three years trying to change that. Muschong became wheelchair-dependent as a young man after suffer ing a spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed. For three and a half years, we have been working with Team (Punta Gorda) in trying to get something, and the (explanation to us) was that it wasnt available because of the cost, Muschong said. With all due respect, Team Punta Gorda has done very little (to make this happen). Not true, Teams leaders said. City Councilwoman Nancy Prafke was Team Punta Gordas CEO when the Muschong made the request. The hand-cranked bicycle has been the part that has been missing, Prafke said of the loaner program. Its been very difcult, quite honestly ... trying to get people to donate (money for them). Former county commissioner Adam Cummings, who sits on Teams leadership committee, said raising the money for a new hand-cranked bike has been difcult, in part, because donors contribute to have plaques with their names placed on the bikes. And if a bicycle is seldom used, they believe their marketing dollar wont go as far, he said. Recently, Team applied for a grant from the Charlotte Community Foundation that, if received, will be used to purchase more ADA-approved bikes, in addition to the one the City Council unanimously OKd Wednesday. Muschong believes making the bicycle program accessible to people with disabilities will attract a segment of the population that is routinely underserved, and, in the process, will create good karma. It draws people in on a grander scale, he said. Our feeling is, if you want to really promote a bicycle-friendly com munity, dont exclude anybody.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comBIKEFROM PAGE 1 SUNSHINE LAKE TIMELINE Spring 2009 Charlotte County alerted to the algae by lakeside homeowners. Summer 2011 County undertakes study after seeing an increase in algae. Spring 2012 The Atkins Report stated the equivalent of 100 million to 150 million gallons of raw sewage would be needed to generate the amount of nutrients in the lake and the waterway, but does not find a direct cause of the algae. Spring 2012 Charlotte County health officials asked residents to stay away from the algal blooms growing in the lake, and to stop watering their lawns with its water to avoid an allergic reaction. Fall 2012 A Florida Department of Environmental Protection study finds no traces of human waste within the waterway system. Fall 2012 Charlotte County accepts a $1.9 million bid from ProLime Corp. to dredge the lake and waterway to remove algae. An estimated $2.5 million will be needed to clean up the lake. Winter 2012-2013 Last samples of FDEP study determine the type of algae present is nontoxic. Summer 2013 Charlotte County completed testing in the lake and waterway system and found fecal levels fell within tolerable limits. January 2014 Charlotte County approves a $1.1 million additional payment for the cleanup of Sunshine Lake/Sunrise Waterway. April 2014 Dredging delayed due to discovery of little blue heron nests, pushing the overall cost of lake and waterway cleanup to $4 million, to be paid by the Mid County Stormwater MSBU and tax-increment financing from the Parkside Community Redevelopment Area. April 2014 County initiates new testing program with a private environmental firm, with data to be used toward a long-range watermanagement plan. stop in Orlando. And when the two transport ofcers nally saw that she was unresponsive in the Taco Bell parking lot, they rst called their superiors in Tennessee. Only after unsuccessfully trying to revive her did the ofcers dial 911, sources said. The cause of death remains unknown, and the Miami-Dade Medical Examiners Ofce has been awaiting the results of tests. Company representatives would not provide a statement for this story. The company bills itself as the nations largest prisoner-extradition company, and one of the largest international transporters of detainees. According to the company, it transports more than 10,000 detainees each year for law enforcement across the country. We can move your prisoner at less cost than if you did it your self, the companys website boasts. A spokeswoman for the CCSO, which contracts with Prisoner Transportation Services for extraditing inmates, said Friday that she could not comment about the company until her counterparts at the Miami-Dade Police Department nish their investigation. The CCSO runs the Charlotte County Jail. Prisoner Transportation Services has not escaped scrutiny in recent years. Last year, two company agents left their transport van unattended in Oklahoma, and the inmates broke through a partition and drove away. The eight prisoners were recaptured. In 2009, the company lost two inmates in high-prole escapes during a six-month span. One man accused of attempted murder vanished from a transport van somewhere between Fort Lauderdale and Philadelphia. In the other case, Delawares prison system cut ties with the company after a shackled inmate en route to the state escaped at an airport. The Miami incident raises questions about whether the company had proper procedures and training vital concerns often over looked by governments looking to save money by outsourcing public-safety functions, said Donald Cohen, executive director of In the Public Interest, a nonprot group that studies privatization. They let someone die on their watch, and this should not have happened, Cohen said. As for Denise Isaacs, she had lived in Punta Gorda with her father for several years. In August 2012, she was arrested on a grand theft charge after police said she stole $1,200 worth of mer chandise from a Walmart store in Port Charlotte. She pleaded no contest and was given 18 months of probation plus a withhold of adjudication, which means no conviction appeared on her record. According to her daughter, Denise recently had returned to her native Kentucky, still under corrections supervision. She was my best friend. We lived together. She would just make me laugh all day. She had the biggest heart ever, Kallie Isaacs said. We had plans for Thanksgiving and Christmas. She wasnt done living yet. Then in August, the Florida Department of Corrections found that Denise had violated her probation. The reason: She had failed to complete 200 hours of community service and owed $607.98 in court nes. Authorities in Kentucky arrested Denise and booked her into the Fayette County Detention Center in Lexington. After her jailing, Denise suffered hallucinations, complaining that she had not been given her psychiatric medications, her daughter said. Nonetheless, a Prisoner Transportation Services Chevrolet passenger van picked her up in Kentucky on Sept. 14, then headed south, collecting other inmates at detention centers in several states. On the evening of Sept. 16, the van stopped at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in West MiamiDade to pick up another inmate. In all, eight male and three female inmates were in the van, separated from the driver and accompanying company agent by a partition. Just before 10 p.m., company transport ofcers Kirk Westbrooks and Kenneth Adams, both 41, stopped at the Taco Bell at 3750 N.W. 79th Ave., in Doral, Fla. That was when they found Denise unconscious. Her daughter said a company representative, in a phone call afterward, insisted Isaacs had been medically cleared for the trip. They shouldnt have let her make the trip in that condition, knowing she was not eating, knowing she was hallucinating, Kallie said, tearfully. They should have left her here (in Kentucky) and given her medical attention. Charlotte Sun Staff Writer Adam Kreger contributed to this report.INMATEFROM PAGE 1 parts of the adjacent Sunrise Waterway is nearly complete. Joanne Vernon, county engineer, said the dredging of the water system now has just 1 acre left before the project is expected to be completed in January 2015. Tomasko said the key now is to ensure the blue-green algae will not return, which is the goal of the lake-management plan now being prepared. Another major concern is the amount of fecal coliform bacteria in the water, and where it came from. High concentrations of fecal coliform bacteria were found in stormwater runoff, the report stated, with some levels nearly 100 times higher than the threshold for excessive concentrations. The studys ndings indicate humans are not the origin for this type of bacteria, Tomasko said. Based on preliminary results, the very high levels of fecal coliform bacteria found in stormwater runoff do not, as of yet, appear to be due to humans as a primary source, according to the Atkins report. Additional testing that looked at the DNA sequencing of the bacteria conrmed that the fecal coliform bacteria is not from human waste. Thats the main reason why we dont think its due to humans, Tomasko said. He said the bacteria may not be attributable to animals of any kind. A large amount of grass clippings, left out in the moist, summer heat, could produce bacteria that test as fecal coliform, he explained. County Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch was satised with the test results, reiterating that a public health threat never existed. The Atkins report has veried there is no toxic danger in that body of water, Deutsch said. Previous testing by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection determined that the blue-green algae in the lake is nontoxic, and the Charlotte County Health Department found fecal levels at acceptable levels. But Tomasko said it still could affect human health adversely. Its not necessarily toxic, but anything rotting in your backyard can be harmful, he said. A long-term water-management plan could begin to take shape Oct. 21, when the water-testing ndings are presented at a county workshop. Possible future actions to lessen the chances for an algal outbreak to recur, Tomasko said, could include raising the water level and creating more circulation to make the water body less susceptible to contamination. If phosphorus levels cannot be mitigated, another approach would be to redirect the nutrient to a purpose other than feeding algae growth, such as creating oating hydroponic gardens in the lake. If these remedies sound out of the ordinary, so are the lake and waterway. Its the most complicated lake Ive ever worked on, Tomasko said. This is a really unusual lake.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comTESTFROM PAGE 1 | COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFSBand to perform free concertThe Banyan Bluegrass Band will perform a free concert from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. today at the Punta Gorda Historical Societys Train Depot, 1009 Taylor Road, Punta Gorda.

A large group of professionals built the Titanic. Whats the difference in the results of Noah building the Ark and the professional construction of the Titanic? I believe Noahs own survival depended upon how closely he followed directions how well he listened to the Ark Designers instructions. I wonder how many professionals who designed the Titanic booked passage on its maiden voyage! The turmoil in todays world bids us to listen to Christs caution, voiced in each address to the seven churches in Revelation 2-3, before we set sail upon the seas of life. Its repeated in each letter: Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches (see Revelation 2:7, 11, 17 and 29; and 3:6, 13 and 22). Like the fellow in the Verizon Phone commer cials, Jesus is asking us, Can you hear me now? My mother-in-law once said, When we face the storms of life, its not the gale, but the set of the sail that determines the course of the ship. Jesus advice to these churches will help us navigate the vessels of our lives in the midst of every stormy sea. Jesus told the Church at Ephesus, I know you work long and hard, and dont put up with those who are evil. You have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them to be liars. You have been faithful and have put up with a lot of trouble because of me. You have not given up (Revelation 2:2-3). Yet, in spite of commending them, we cant ignore His criticism in verses 4-5: I hold something against you. You dont have as much love as you had at rst. Remember how far you have fallen! Turn away from your sins. Do the things you did at rst. In 1 John 3:16-18, Jesus words are applied by challenging, Because Jesus Christ gave his life for us, we should give our lives for our brothers and sisters. If someone sees a brother or sister in need, is able to help them, and doesnt take pity on them, is the love of God really in him? Talk is cheap! We must put our love into action. Then it truly will be love. The Rev. Larry Armbrust, a retired United Methodist Florida Conference pastor, lives in Port Charlotte.

The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 C Our Town Page 7 RELIGION NEWS Our human will is what gets us into trouble. Certainly we have to decide some things on our own. But if the foreman of the farm decides what he is going to do today without consulting the owner, he is liable to get in trouble. The owner decides what the plan is for the day. Likewise, God is the owner of our lives. He has a plan and a will for us. If we consult Him every day, we will be much better off. During his presidency, Abraham Lincoln said, If it were not for my belief in an overwhelming Providence, it would be difcult for me, in the midst of such compli cations, to keep my reason on its seat. But I am condent that the Almighty has His plans and will work them out; and whether we see it or not, they will be the wisest and best for me. I have always taken counsel of Him, and referred to Him in my plans, and have never adopted a course of proceeding without being assured as far as I could be, of His approbation. I should be the most presumptuous blockhead upon this footstool if I, for one day, thought that I could discharge the duties which have come upon me since I came into this place without the aid and enlightenment of One who is wiser and stronger than all the others. Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us, Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. The poet Henry Van Dyke writes of yielding to Gods will in his poem, titled Peace. With eager heart and will on re, I strove to win my great desire. Peace shall be mine, I said; but life Grew bitter in the barren strife. My soul was weary, and my pride Was wounded deep; to Heaven I cried, God grant me peace or I must die; The dumb stars glittered no reply. Broken at last, I bowed my head, Forgetting all myself, and said, Whatever comes, His will be done; And in that moment peace was won. Ask God each morning, Lord, what would you have me do today? Then, stay close to Him, seeking to do His will. The Rev. John T. James is a former pastor of 22 years at Tatum Ridge Baptist Church in Sarasota, and now is retired and living in Port Charlotte; he served more than 50 years in the ministry in Florida.

Educated Americans are moving away Equates Parkside with Murdock VillageEditor: For the rst time in Americas history, we have been challenged with a crossroad. One road leads to diplomacy, hesitation and a psychological imprint for mercy. The other road is to engage in a holy war where we take no prisoners and wipe out an entire population of Islamic terrorists known as ISIS. Our nation is at risk of facing a murderous group of religious fanatics with one belief of killing all infidels. Our government has failed us by politicizing all actions against our enemies and it has got to stop now. These failures and delay tactics are not acceptable and we must insist that direct action be deployed as soon as possible. Forget golf, vacations, inghting with Democrats and Republicans and protect our country as is your job. Defend our country and rally our troops now reinstate the draft and let those thugs who shoot each other shoot our enemies instead. About time they learned what our military instructors can teach them honor and obey orders then let us see how tough they act. Respect went downhill when the draft was eliminated in 1973 and left gangs of youths with nothing to do but ght amongst themselves. This is not the time for political correctness and bleeding hearts to take the offensive it is the time to kick butts and regain our number one status in the worldwide community and gain back the respect and honor we as a country have worked so hard to create. God bless us all; we really need it.Tony Wyan Punta GordaEditor: Response to the recent letter What about folks of other faiths? Editor: When President Obama did his apology tour in 2009, he set the stage for what we see today in the Middle East. Remember, he received his primary education in Muslim Indonesia, where he learned the United States was responsible for the world problems. This is the backbone of his ideology. His mother was a Marxist, his grandparents communist and his mentor, Frank Marshal Davis, a communist. According to his own book, he sought out radicals, left-leaning professors in college. So, what you are witnessing is what this ideology produces. That is why he leads from behind and is trying to avoid the United States getting involved in anything in the Middle East, Eastern Europe and, coming soon, Asia. However, when he did interfere in Egypt and Libya, Editor: Great editorial on John Thrasher. I say let him bring a bunch of money with him and then show him the door for someone more qualied to be president of Florida State University, while the voters show Rick Scott the door.Frank Kavanaugh Punta GordaEditor: I am Jack Colligan, candidate for North Port City Commission Seat 4. I would like the voters to know what I bring to the North Port City Commission if elected. My wife, Kathy, and I have made North Port our home for over 27 years where we raised our two children, Susan and John. Our children attended North Port schools and participated in athletics. I have worked for both the city of North Port and Sarasota County in a management capacity for over 26 years. In 2013, I retired from Sarasota County as parks and recreation manager. My responsibilities included overseeing the athletic, aquatic and recreational divisions. This included up to 50 employees at times and a budget of over $4 million. I was liaison to the cities of Venice, North Port and Sarasota advisory boards. I negotiated agreements with the North Port YMCA and Sarasota School Board for the use of North Port Heron Creek Middle school for the North Port Huskys football organization. I also served on Sarasota Countys management team during union negotiations. Having worked with both city and county governments gives me a decided advantage when it comes to representing you, the taxpayer. So when you go to the polls, ask yourselves this question: What will this candidate do for North Port? If you vote Jack Colligan the answer will be clear: Work in the best interest of the people of North Port.Jack Colligan North PortEditor: What if you are a person who enjoys peace and quiet in your daily life? What if this world with all its crashing, smashing, booming, thundering, and blasting from all its wars and problems will not allow you to have it?

What if peace was their Editor: The book Atlas Shrugged written about 57 years ago by Ayn Rand should be read by all lawmakers. It gives one much to think about in its 1,000 plus pages of fine print. Why are our educated people and businesses leaving our country for another? What are they receiving there that we cannot give them? We arent the strong country that we used to be. Wake up, lawmakers of America. Examine the cause and correct the problem before we become too weak to defend ourselves.Myrtle Bennett Punta GordaEditor: Parkside plan.

This countrys conception was built upon a biblical foundation and dedicated to Gods purposes, beginning with the Pilgrims and Puritans who ed Europe in order to practice their biblical faith freely.

America has been blessed more than any other nation in the modern world and America has blessed the world by sending more missionaries and more nancial and medical relief than any other country in history. The rst step in the downward spiral of our country was in 1963, when the Supreme Court decided to ban public school prayer. Since then there has been an unprecedented moral decline.

As for sending troops to the Middle East, the language used by this administration is confusing. First we had Overseas Continuance Operations, and now it is called Forward Deployment.

There were dozens of vendors, nice-sized crowds, music and sunshine. Hot, but the promise of autumn. The market is really a combination of two farmers markets set up across the street from one another. On the south side, in the county-owned Pioneer Park, is the original nonprofit Farmers Market organized four years ago by a handful of local volunteers. The enormous success of that venture soon spawned a copycat on private property on the north side of Dearborn. Relations between the two camps have not always been warm: Vendors from the original market arent necessarily thrilled about the competition from the newcomers, and organizers arent particularly excited about the dilution of their brand by someone riding their coattails. But the north-side market isnt slapdash: The property was handsomely upgraded by the landowner and the displays are well-presented. Both have live music. Overall, the experience is enhanced for the people who come to shop. This is a case where growth fueled growth. Success bred more success. Which was the underlying theory in the formation of the Englewood Community Redevelopment Area in the first place the same with all CRAs in Florida. The idea is that the infusion of targeted local tax dollars can reinvigorate blighted areas. Public investment fuels private investment. Success, etc. In a short time, the Englewood Farmers Market has become the biggest draw yet seen in the Englewood CRA. Thursdays crowds were good. Thursday mornings three months from now, the place will be as busy as a shopping mall on a weekend before Christmas. The fact is, the market has not only resuscitated Dearborn Street, it may have brought more people to the historic downtown on a regular basis than ever before. Its a wonderful thing, and it may just be the single factor that pushes the redevelopment effort past a tipping point. As for the CRA itself, after the market season ends in May the park will be improved with pavers and other upgrades. Directly south of Pioneer Park on Green Street a large, new county parking lot was open Thursday. Its attractive built according to the towns low-impact design standards and convenient for any park events or shopping at Dearborn businesses. One thing to keep in mind if you park there: The plantings along the lots perimeter are new and sensitive to foot traffic. Use the walkways. The Englewood Farmers Market (or markets) is open 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Thursday on Dearborn Street. Youll find produce, baked goods, fresh seafood, meats, cheeses, plants, booths with prepared foods and boutique items. (We recommend the homemade pickles and soft pretzels.) Its all good. The market brings a terrific jolt of life to the old fishing village. Even diehard skeptics may be starting to believe the redevelopment project will work, after all.OUR VIEW


The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 C Our Town Page 11 VIEWPOINTCalifornia became the rst state in the nation this week to ban disposable single-use plastic shopping bags. The ban is needed, supporters said, to reduce litter and protect birds and sea life from becoming entangled in bags. The ban also prevents bags from clogging storm drains or winding up in landlls. That new law prompted some pundits and others with environmental leanings to say that Florida and other states should take similar action. An online poll by WTSP-TV this week (with fewer than 100 respondents) found that 65 percent think Florida should ban plastic bags. But thats not going to happen, not without big changes in the Florida Legislature and without changing a law adopted in 2008 that was intended to thwart such bag bans statewide or locally. In 2008, HB 7135 passed with support from environmentalists along with then-Gov. Charlie Crist, now a Democrat running for governor, and thenHouse Speaker Marco Rubio, now a Republican U.S. senator from Miami. The bill required the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to conduct an analysis of the need for new regulations for disposable bags. And until DEPs recommendations were accepted by the Legislature, there could be no statewide or local bans. DEP issued a draft recommendation that called for taxing bags by up to 25 cents each and then banning them in 2015. But that recommendation was withdrawn after the Florida Retail Federation raised objections. The nal report issued in 2010 just outlined a list of recommendations. The Legislature never took action and the ban remains in place. That shows how business and industry lobbyists can avoid a political ght in the Legislature and still kill an environmental initiative by simply requiring a study. But the issue hasnt completely gone away. Earlier this year, state Sen. Dwight Bullard, D-Miami, introduced SB 830 to lift the ban at the request of elementary school students in Cutler Bay. SB 830 would have allowed such bans to apply only to larger retail stores. And the bill would have allowed stores to charge customers up to 10 cents each for disposable paper bags. Samantha Hunter Padgett of the Florida Retail Federation opposed the bill, saying it would create a bag tax and would cost jobs. She said her group instead supports a bag recycling awareness campaign. Senators on the Senate Committee on Environmental Preservation and Conservation latched onto the bag tax concerns. They encour aged Bullard to postpone action to avoid a vote that would go against him. Unlike paper bags, plastic bags do affect our waterways to the detriment of Floridas wildlife and other natural things, Bullard said before the vote was postponed. The reality is a paper bag stuck in a storm drain will ultimately dissipate in a shorter period of time than plastic bags will. Some sources say it will take plastic bags as long as 1,000 years to break down in a landll. Others say no one really knows how long it will take or that it doesnt matter once theyre in a landll. The question on my mind is whether the prohibition against local bag bans will still be in place whenever that occurs because state law will require that the Legislature adopt recommendations of a study a study that was completed in 2010. Bruce Ritchie is an independent journalist covering environment and growth management issues in Tallahassee. He also is editor of Floridaenvironments. com. Column courtesy of Context Florida.Why Florida wont follow California on bag ban Guest ColumnistBruce Ritchie Republicans seem to be pulling away in the race to win a majority in the U.S. Senate. At least this week. In mid-September, several polls seemed to be going the other way. The well-informed Washington Post analyst Chris Cillizza wrote that for the rst time in this election cycle, odds favored the Democrats keeping their majority. Two weeks later, he was singing another tune. Analysts at the Post, The New York Times and FiveThirtyEight, in addition to psephologists Charlie Cook, Stuart Rothenberg and Larry Sabato, all agreed. What may have happened is this: Over the summer, Democrats used their money advantage to savage Republican opponents. When spending got equalized in September, Republicans numbers rose. So Republicans retain big leads to pick up three open seats in states carried by Mitt Romney West Virginia, Montana and South Dakota. Republican nominees have moved ahead of three Democratic incumbents in Romney states (Alaska, Arkansas and Louisiana) and in two target states carried by President Obama (Colorado and Iowa). Only in North Carolina, which Romney narrowly carried, has the Republican not yet overtaken the incumbent Democrat Sen. Kay Hagan and her edge is narrowing in the most recent polls. Psephologists used to have a rule that incumbents running below 50 percent against lesser-known challengers would inevitably lose. Everyone knows them, the logic went, and half arent voting for them. That rule doesnt seem to apply any more, but perhaps another one does. The RealClearPolitics aver age of recent polls puts Democratic incumbents in these five states at 41 to 44 percent of the vote. In seriously contested races in the last six Senate cycles, starting with 2002, only two incumbents polling at that level in September ended up winning. One was appointed to an open seat and thus probably not widely known. Both ended up with less than 50 percent and won by plurality. Psephological rules are made to be broken, sooner or later. Polls can uctuate. Events or campaigning can change attitudes. Democrats now trailing might win Republican seats in Kentucky or Georgia. Or the former Democrat running as an Independent in Kansas could win and cast the deciding vote for Democrats. There are ways they can hold their Senate majority. But most likely they wont. That should settle the ongoing argument in psephological circles about whether this is a wave year. Some argued that since Republicans were expected to gain only a few seats in the House something the insiders pretty much agree on and since they were by no means certain of winning a Senate majority, it might not be a wave at all. But it depends on what your benchmark is. In 2012, Republicans won 234 House seats the second most theyve won since 1946, just behind the 242 in 2010. Expecting them to gain anything like the 63 seats they did in 2010 or the 52 in 1994 was always unrealistic. As for Senate elections, the Republicans entered this cycle down 55 to 45. Its noteworthy when well-informed analysts give a party a better-than-even chance of making a net gain of six Senate seats, as they have throughout this cycle. I cant remember consensus predictions of six-Senate-seat gains in 1974, 1980, 1994 or 2006 all now regarded as wave years. All of which is to say that focusing too closely on uctuations in the polls risks losing sight of the bigger picture. Rewind back ve years: The Obama Democrats expected their major policies to be popular. They expected that most voters would be grateful for the stimulus package, for Obamacare, for raising the tax rate on high earners. They arent. Democrats expected that running for re-election theyd be running ads touting these genuine accomplishments. They arent. Instead, you get personal attacks on Republican nominees and oldie-but-supposedly-goodie reprises of the war on women theme. Out in Colorado, about half of Democrat Mark Udalls TV spots have been on abortion. Even liberal commentators are questioning whether thats smart. But maybe the Udall consultants sitting around the table cant come up with anything better. Early in the 2010 cycle, Barack Obama told an Arkansas House Democrat that he neednt worry about voters because youve got me. Today, all four Arkansas House seats are held by Republicans. Democratic Senate candidates in multiple states have been shunning Obama campaign appearances. Were watching a wave come in. We just cant be sure how far it goes. Michael Barone is a senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner. Readers can reach him via www. washingtonexaminer. com. How far will the GOP ride momentum? Michael Barone As they prepare for the rst of three TV debates, Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Charlie Crist are ne-tuning their talking points for viewers who are just starting to pay attention to the biggest race for governor in the country. Scott is sure to remind TV viewers that when Florida was in the depths of a recession in 2009, Crist raised taxes and fees by $2.2 billion. Thats true. But its not the whole truth. Its an example of how Scott rewrites history to suit his political ends (and hes hardly the rst politician to do that). What Scott leaves out is that virtually every Republican in the Legislature voted to raise those taxes and fees, including his lieutenant governor, Carlos Lopez-Cantera; his former lieutenant governor Jennifer Carroll; and the most inuential GOP legislators in both chambers. Crist, who has since become a Democrat, didnt do it alone. Chief Financial Ofcer Jeff Atwater, who was president of the Senate, voted for those higher fees. So did Rep. Will Weatherford, the outgoing House speaker, and Rep. Jimmy Patronis, a termedout member recently chosen by Scott to serve on the Public Service Commission. The list goes on and on. The architects of those tax and fee hikes in 2009 included some of Scotts biggest supporters. Not only that, but some of them defend the decision to this day, calling it difcult, unavoidable and the right thing to do. Senate President Don Gaetz recalls that 2009 vote this way: I voted for them. It was the right vote, Gaetz said. It was the right vote. I mean, we were trying to keep the lights on in the Capitol, and keep the lights on, more importantly, in schools. I mean, schools were taking huge cuts at that time. It was a tough vote. None of us liked it. It was the least worst alternative at the time. Florida faced a $6 billion shortfall that year. The state plugged about half of it with federal economic stimulus funds, leaving a $3 billion hole. Refusing to undertake a long-overdue review of sales tax loopholes that benet corporations, lawmakers took the easy way out. They passed a $1-per-pack increase in the cigarette tax, which hadnt been raised in decades, and steep increases in car and truck registration fees. Scotts $25 rollback of the tag fees is a central theme of his campaign for re-election. The other day, reporters asked Scott if his lieutenant governor should also bear some responsibility for higher taxes and fees on Floridians, since they never would have reached Crists desk if the Legislature hadnt passed them. True to form, Scotts reply was off the subject. It takes leadership to decide the direction of the state. Charlie promised to cut taxes and he didnt. He raised taxes $2 billion, he said. Taxes shouldnt have been raised. Crist could have vetoed the package. That would have saved him from violating a ridiculous no-new-taxes pledge that he should never have made, but it would have put the state in a deeper hole. Scott presumably would have vetoed those taxes and fees that were the work of his fellow Republicans. But in the words of Gaetz, it would have been lights out for Floridas public schools.

The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 C Our Town Page 13 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS PORT CHARLOTTE What started as a theft investigation turned into a drug bust involving the SWAT team on Ednor Street, in the Parkside area of town. Three were arrested. What happened on Ednor began as a search warrant by our district detectives for proper ty, Charlotte County Sheriffs spokeswoman Debbie Bowe said. But they found narcotics, so the search warrant was amended and Narcotics detectives were called in. SWAT was there too. Authorities had been searching the home on the 2200 block of Ednor for stolen property, but they said they found 15 grams of methamphetamine in a bedroom while looking for possible burglary tools in a dresser drawer. The initial investigation started after three shing poles worth $400 were reported missing Sept. 18 from the carport of a home on Midway Boulevard, right around the corner from the Ednor address. Four days later, a trailer containing more than $3,000 in items including an air compressor and tools was taken from a driveway on Delhi Avenue. Wednesday, investigators questioned Brian Lynn Brugman, 38, of the Ednor address, who gave them information about at least one of the thefts, reports show. He allegedly was involved, as well as his two roommates, Thomas Schippert Bailey, 29, and William Ronald Wright III, 23. Thursday, before the trios home was searched, Bailey was pulled over in the area of West Tarpon Boulevard and U.S. 41. He reportedly was driving an SUV pulling the stolen trailer. About three hours later, the mens home was raided. In addition to nding the meth, author ities located the stolen property, including part of the compressor under the sink, with the serial number scratched off. In all, investigators felt they had enough to charge the men with the following: Brugman: two counts of grand theft. His bond was set at $18,000. Bailey: grand theft, possession of altered property and tampering with evidence. He was held without bond, due to being taken off bond from previous charges. Wright: three counts of grand theft; two counts of burglary; and one count each of trafcking in more than 14 grams of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and tampering with evidence. His bond was set at $105,000. All three men remained at the Charlotte County Jail Friday. Bailey has been arrested over a dozen times locally on charges related to incidents ranging from drinking underage to battery. Wright was arrested in April for petty theft his third or subsequent such offense. Brugman was arrested less than a year ago in relation to a different theft.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comTrio face myriad charges after Ednor raidBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITER ROTONDA WEST Local residents arent taking the vandalism to one of the communitys new gateway signs lying down. A $1,000 reward is being offered for anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the three Ms in black spray paint on the gateway sign at Rotonda West Boulevard North last week. The reward could even be higher, said John Peszko, chairman of the Rotonda West Municipal Service Benet Service Unit Advisory Committee. Hes still seeing contributions coming from residents. Were all pitching in as individuals, Peszko said Thursday. We want to make a statement. The MSBU committee invested $48,100 in the design of the signs and another $364,710 for their construction, landscaping and lighting of the signs. The new gateway signs were installed at Cape Haze Drive, Rebel Court, Rotonda Boulevard North, East and West. The signs were still waiting for Florida Power and Light to run power to them when residents discovered the grafti on the Rotonda Boulevard North sign. We all pay $100 (assessment) into the MSBU, Peszko said. Residents are willing to pay to improve the community, he said, but they arent willing just to stand by and watch someone try to destroy what theyve accomplished. According to Charlotte County Sheriffs reports, other street informational signs in Rotonda West and along Sunnybrook Boulevard in Englewood East, as well as a mailbox, were also tagged. As far as the CCSO investigation, Peszko said, Theyre doing a great job. We just wanted to throw some sweetness out there.

Our Town Page 14 C The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS ARLINGTON, Va. A caisson anked by an honor guard and drawn by six matching brown horses held Harold Sandlers remains in a steel-gray casket draped with an American ag. The eight soldiers in impeccable Army dress were commanded by an equally resplendent captain. All waited in statue-like silence Tuesday on a road in Arlington National Cemetery, just across the Potomac from Washington, D.C. Sandler was born in 1915, grew up in Chicago and went to war from there in 1943 as a 28-year-old private. Before he was shipped overseas he attended officer candidate school after reading a note on a bulletin board stating the Army was looking for OCS candidates. Following World War II, he became an electrician. He spent most of his working career in the Miami Beach area where he and his wife, Gloria, lived beginning in 1954. A decade ago the couple moved to Venice to be closer to their daughter, Arlene, and her family. He died on July 14, 2013, at the Douglas T. Jacobson State Veterans Nursing Home in Port Charlotte. He was 97. The day of the funeral, a black limousine with the old soldiers family pulled up at 9 a.m. sharp. The mourners climbed from the limo and arranged themselves in single le across the road, 50 feet behind the casket. Gloria Sandler, his widow, was in a wheelchair on the far left. Beside her was her daughter, Arlene Moore, then came Arlenes two adult sons, Brendan and Devin, and their father, Colin, followed by assorted guests a dozen or so in all. Off to one side on a connecting road, a 20-piece military band played softly as family members and friends stood in silent reverence. The beat of a single drum announced the band was moving to the head of the procession to lead the column to the gravesite. Slowly the band and caisson with casket on top, followed by the mourners, walked a halfmile at a steady pace. The mourners were anked by white-marble military headstones on both sides of the road as far as the eye could see. Down a hill the procession went, turned left and halted. A foot-square, wooden brown box containing Capt. Sandlers ashes was removed from atop the caisson by a member of the honor guard. A second guard member took the folded American ag from the caisson. Together, the two soldiers preceded the group to the grave. The box was placed on a bier before several rows of chairs set up for the mourners. Eight members of the honor guard anked both sides of the box with military precision. The captain commanding the honor guard stood tall at one end. The honor guard unfolded the ag above the wooden box as they passed it from hand to hand, standing two-by-two. Rabbi Marvin Bash chanted a Hebrew blessing for the dead. Then he recited Capt. Sandlers military record. He told the mourners the captain was a recipient of the Silver Star for valor in World War II. He fought with Gen. George Pattons 3rd Army in Europe. He also received the Purple Heart a few days later during a reght with a German tank. We salute the captain for his bravery, the rabbi concluded. Off at a distance, a seven-man rie squad red a three-round volley, shattering the serenity. The mournful strains of taps were sounded. At a distance the military band played America the Beautiful as the eight guardsmen crisply refolded the ag passing it from hand to hand. The triangular ag was handed to the captain, who turned and presented it to the soldiers widow. This ag is presented on behalf of a grateful nation and the U.S. Army as a token of appreciation for your loved ones honorable and grateful service, he whispered to her as she sat in her wheelchair. Capt. Harold Sandler of Venice, who served in Headquarters Company, 2nd Battalion, 7th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Army during WWII, now rests forever below the branches of a massive oak in the rolling hills of Arlington. The cemetery was once a 1,100-acre plantation owned by Martha Washingtons grandson, who willed it to his daughter, Mary Anna Randolph Custis. She became the wife of Civil War Confederate Gen.

The encouraging numbers contained in the last government report on unemployment before the midterm elections pushed the Dow Jones average up 209 points to 17,010 and could give an important boost at the polls to Democrats and to incumbents in general. U.S. employers added a robust 248,000 jobs in September and generated 69,000 more jobs in July and August than previously reported, the government said Friday. That helped bring unemployment down from 6.1 percent in August. The jobless rate now stands at the lowest level since July 2008, in the middle of the Great Recession, and is getting close to the roughly 5.5 percent that the Federal Reserve considers consistent with a healthy economy. In a speech in Princeton, Ind., President Barack Obama exulted over the numbers, noting that businesses have added jobs for 55 months in a row, the longest such stretch on record. He credited the drive and determination of the American people, and added: Its also got a little bit to do with some decisions we made pretty early on in my administration. Nevertheless, other gauges of the job mar ket still bear scars from the recession. Wages arent rising.

Im just like, Come on! she says. I get whats going on, but can you see its a store? Brent says she wants to rename her store, in southern California, to avoid any confusion with the group sometimes called Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Isis is part of more than 270 product, service or business names among active federal trademarks, according to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Ofce. But businesses are not required to register their names, so it is difcult to say how many companies use Isis, which is also the name of an Egyptian and pagan goddess. For those companies, the Isis name can be damaging. Branding experts say an unfortunate association with a name can scar a companys reputation even if the connection is coincidental. Take Isis Collections Inc., a New Jersey company that makes weaves, wigs and hairpieces. CEO Phillip Shin says stores have told him that customers will put his companys products back on the shelf after noticing the Isis label. In the United Kingdom, hes heard that competitors have joked at trade shows about his business being tied to terrorists.

Page 2 WIRE The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 NATIONAL/WORLD NEWS DETROIT (AP) General Motors announced two more recalls Friday, pushing its total for the year to 71, affecting almost 30 million vehicles in North America. The biggest of the new recalls covers just over 430,000 Cadillac SRX and Saab 9-4X SUVs, mainly in North America. The company says some rear suspension nuts may not have been tightened properly. That could cause the toe link adjuster to separate from the suspension, possibly causing a crash. Another covers the Chevrolet Spark mini car because the hoods can unexpectedly y open. GM also conrmed Friday that it has told dealers to stop selling Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon midsize pickup trucks that went on sale about two weeks ago until an air bag problem is repaired. The SUV recall covers SRXs from the 2011 through 2015 model years and Saabs from the 2011 and 2012 model years. GM says the problem has caused three crashes and two injuries. Dealers will inspect the SUVs and install a new assembly if needed. Unsold SRXs are being checked to make sure the nuts are tightened properly. The other recall covers nearly 94,000 Chevrolet Spark mini-cars from 2013 through 2015 in the U.S. and Canada. Rust can cause a secondary hood latch to stick, and the hood can open unexpectedly, blocking the drivers vision and causing a crash. GM says it knows of no crashes or injuries from the problem. Dealers will replace the latch when parts are available. GM has told dealers not to sell about 13,000 cars on their lots until the repairs are made. On the pickup trucks, spokesman Alan Adler said dealers nationwide were told Thursday to stop selling them because the air bags werent wired properly at the factory in Wentzville, Mo. A recall is pending. The company is still working on a remedy, which may be a software update, he said. Most of the trucks remain on dealer lots or at the factory, but GM reported that it sold 47 last month, according to Autodata Corp. GM says that because of the problem, driver air bags wont work as designed.GM issues 2 more recalls for SUVs, mini cars AP FILE PHOTOIn this Jan. 14, 2011, photo, people look at the Saab 9-4X Crossover during the 89th European Motorshow at Brussels Expo, Belgium.

The 36-year-old mother received a uterus from a close family friend last year. Her baby boy was born prematurely but healthy last month, and he and the mom are now at home and well. Dr. Mats Brannstrom says the baby is fantastic. He is the professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Gothenburg and Stockholm IVF who led the research. Details of the case are to be published soon in the medical journal, Lancet.Hong Kong protesters cancel talks after scufflesHONG KONG (AP) Pro-democracy protesters called off planned talks with the government on political reforms Friday after mobs tried to drive them from the streets where they have held a weeklong, largely peaceful demonstration. The protesters urged residents to join their cause and demanded that the police protect their encampments. The Hong Kong Federation of Students, one of the groups leading the demonstrations that drew tens of thousands of people earlier this week, said they saw no choice but to cancel the dialogue.Ukraine, rebels trade blame over aid workers death(LA Times) Fighting between Ukrainian troops and pro-Russia gunmen raged around Donetsks international airport Friday, a day after the artillery battle spilled into the nearby city and killed a Swiss aid worker with the International Committee of the Red Cross. The fierce battle for control of what was Ukraines second-largest airport and the killings of at least two dozen people in Donetsk suburbs this week were the most blatant evidence that a Sept. 5 cease-fire is being violated by both sides. Leaders of the separatists self-proclaimed Donetsk Peoples Republic have openly conceded they are trying to wrest the airport from government control. Russian media this week quoted the breakaway regions self-declared prime minister, Alexander Zakharchenko, as saying the separatist forces control 90 percent of the airport territory.Signs of HIV found in child thought to be cured(Washington Post) Disappointed researchers reported Thursday that a second child thought to have been cured of HIV is showing signs of infection.

The decit dropped 0.5 percent in August to $40.1 billion, compared to a revised $40.3 billion in July, the Commerce Department reported Friday. Exports increased 0.2 percent to a record $198.5 billion, aided by increased sales of petroleum, telecommunications equipment and industrial engines. Imports also rose by a smaller 0.1 percent to $238.6 billion. Even with the falling decit the past four months, the imbalance so far this year is running 4.2 percent higher than the same period in 2013. Parents: Cameraman in good spirits NEW YORK (AP) The parents of an American freelance cameraman diagnosed with Ebola said Friday that their son was in good spirits. Obviously he is scared and worried, Dr. Mitchel Levy said of his son, Ashoka Mukpo, who was hired Tuesday to be the second cameraman in Liberia for NBCs chief medical editor and correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman. Mukpo has been seeing the death and tragedy and now it really hit home for him. But his spirits are better today, added Levy, who appeared on NBCs Today show with his wife, Diana Mukpo. Their 33-year-old son was being treated in the Liberian capital of Monrovia and was scheduled to return to the United States during the weekend for treatment, his mother said.Attorney: Girl in coma has brain functionSAN FRANCISCO (Oakland Tribune) The attorney for the family of Jahi McMath showed a video to reporters Thursday of the 13-yearold brain dead girl that he says proves she moves in response to her mothers voice and therefore is alive. At his San Francisco ofce, attor ney Christopher Dolan showed the video to a small group of reporters, saying it is evidence that the Oakland teenager is showing signs of life. The video shows Jahi moving her feet and hands, apparently after her mother commands her to move those specic body parts. It shows she can rapidly respond to a command ... its not a uke, said Phillip DeFina, the chair man of the International Brain Research Foundation, which performed the tests along with neurologists. Dolan also showed an MRI of Jahi that he said shows a portion of her brain is still active.Losing sense of smell may be a harbinger of death (LA Times) Losing ones sense of smell is a strong predictor that death is near and it possibly could be used as an early alert about serious health problems. Thats the conclusion of a study of older adults published this week in the journal PLOS One, which found that those who failed a smelling test were much more likely to die within ve years. Inability to sense odors doesnt directly cause death, but its a harbinger, an early warning that something has gone badly wrong, the studys lead author, Dr. Jayant M. Pinto, an associate professor of surgery at the University of Chicago, said in a statement. In the study, researchers gave a smelling test to about 3,000 people ages 57 to 85. The volunteers were presented with ve odors peppermint, sh, orange, rose and leather-one at a time and asked to identify them. Five years later, the researchers checked back. Nearly 40 percent of the people who failed the test, correctly identifying none or only one of the scents, had died in the interim, the study found. Crabs on a plane delay LaGuardia airline flightMELVILLE, N.Y. (Newsday) US Airways passengers from LaGuardia to Charlotte may have been a tiny bit crabby Thursday night over a 26-minute delay. But it turned out a large mess of small crabs found loose in the forward cargo hold was truly disrupted. Flight 890, scheduled to depart at 6:59 p.m., was held up while workers swept the pint-size crustaceans out of the cargo hold, said Josh Freed, a US Airways spokesman. The crab species was not known, he said, but the critters were widespread, and there were a lot of them. While the ight had originated in Charlotte and was headed back there, no information was available as to whose crabs they were and how they got out of their container, he said. He also said he was not aware of what message had been delivered to passengers regarding the delay. For him, though, the incident is le this under never a dull moment.

It was later determined that its highly unlikely the patient has the virus. Ofcials say the patient recently traveled here from West Africa and came to the emergency department with symptoms similar to Ebola. The patient was admitted for treatment and observation, but doctors who evaluated the patient both emergency medicine and infectious disease specialists say he does not meet the CDC criteria for Ebola testing and that it is highly unlikely he has the Ebola virus. The patients travel itinerary did not include any high-risk Ebola countries. As a precaution, ofcials say the hospital activated the appropriate infection control protocols, including placing the patient in isolation and reporting the case to Florida Department of Health ofcials.

On Thursday, crews installed the permanent signs on the ramp from the northbound lanes of I-275. Ofcials tell the Tampa Tribune they still need federal approval to use the signs. The installation of the rst sign came hours after the Florida Highway Patrol charged a 49-yearold woman with DUI after she drove northbound on a highway. She told them she thought she was heading the right way on I-75. Since February, 11 people have died in ve crashes caused by wrongway drivers along Tampa area highways. The solar powered red and white ashing signs are in addition to wrong-way signs already in place.4 charged in Florida for-profit college fraudMIAMI (AP) Four people connected to a nowclosed Florida for-prot college are facing conspiracy and theft of government funds charges for allegedly obtaining $6.5 million in fraudulent student aid. A 15-count federal indictment unsealed Thursday in Miami names the former owner of the Fast Train college, Alejandro Amor, and three admissions ofcers. Fast Train had locations in six Florida cities before it shut down in 2012 following FBI searches at its ofces. The indictment says Fast Train ofcials recruited students who were not eligible for federal student aid to apply for fraudulent Pell Grants and student loans. About 1,300 such applications were completed between August 2008 and May 2012. Court records did not indicate whether Amor had an attorney. He was scheduled Thursday to make an initial appearance in Miami federal court.Lakeland swans get checkupLAKELAND (AP) More than 80 swans that call Lakeland home are getting a medical checkup thanks to city workers.

(AP) Grand Canyon officials have reduced waste by banning disposable plastic water bottles and installing water stations for visitors. But a new problem sprung up: Elk are helping themselves to water at the stations by lifting spring-loaded levers with their noses. Now, officials plan to elk-proof the stations to outsmart the animals, conserve water and protect visitors from aggressive behavior by the animals. They are experimenting with a cage around the spouts at one water station and will change the way its turned on. They got a little aggressive about it, chief resource manager Martha Hahn said. They were pretty protective of that water and wanting to get it first. About a dozen of the filling stations are set up throughout the park, but the elk favor one at South Kaibab Trail because it allows them to easily duck back into the woods.ODD NEWS Elk nose into Grand Canyon water stations Egyptian goddess, started removing the Isis label from some packages. But hes reluctant to give up on such an established brand. He says he wishes the U.S. and European media would stop refer ring to the militant group as ISIS. Isis Collections has had no sales problems in South Korea, where the media only refers to the group as the Islamic State. Another company, technology startup Isis Wallet, announced in September that it would change its name to Softcard. The joint venture involving AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless launched late last year with an app that allows people to use their smartphones while checking out at a store to get discounts and use credit or loyalty cards. By June, company leaders were thinking about rebranding to avoid confusion with the militant group, which had taken over large swaths of Iraq and later lmed the beheadings of some U.S. journalists and a British aid worker. However coincidental, we have no desire to share a name with this group, and our hearts go out to those affected by this violence, CEO Michael Abbott said in a Sept. 3 blog post announcing the new name. Softcard, which also picked its original name to reect the Egyptian goddess, partners with major companies like American Express. The startups executives were worried about asking those partners to continue promoting a product named Isis. We didnt want to put anybody in a bad situation, says Cie Nicholson, senior vice president of marketing. Changing a brand or an established company name can be a costly and complex move. Just nding a memorable name can be hard because the best ideas are often taken or trademarked, says Allen Adamson, managing director of the branding rm Landor Associates. Its not just have a pizza lunch and quickly come up with an alternative, he says. Softcards name change makes sense to Joseph Lewis, a partner with the law rm of Barnes & Thornburg who specializes in trademarks. He noted that the company is new and still building its image. With the old name, they would have had to take the extra step of explaining that they werent tied to the Islamic State group. Brands are owned by companies, but its all in the publics mind and you can only control so much, he says. They can control how it is presented, but they cant always control how its perceived. More established brands that dont deal directly with consumers may not take as much of a hit. Isis Pharmaceuticals Inc. has no plans to change a brand it has built over 25 years. The California company develops drugs and then partners with other companies to sell them.ISISFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOThis Monday photo shows signage outside the headquarters building of Isis Pharmaceuticals Inc. in Carlsbad, Calif. The pharmaceutical company, which shares its name with ISIS, a notorious Islamic militant group that the United States is ghting in Iraq and Syria, has no plans to change its brand. ones remains elevated. An Associated PressGfK poll found that the economy is the top issue in voters minds as the Nov. 4 elections near, and while most signs point toward improvement, 62 percent of likely voters still consider the economy poor, little changed from two years earlier. Given the latest conditions, the Fed may not move up its timetable for raising interest rates to control ination, economists say. Most expect the Fed wont act until the middle of next year. Fridays data are generally consistent with the Feds economic forecasts and therefore should not change their thinking, Doug Handler, an economist at IHS Global Insight, said in a note to clients. The Fed has kept its benchmark interest rate near zero for almost six years in an effort to encourage more bor rowing, spending and growth. When the Fed begins raising the rate, the effects will ripple throughout the economy and could have a profound impact on businesses and consum ers. Rates for mortgages, auto loans and credit cards will probably rise. Businesses may cut back on borrowing. And stock markets frequently drop when rates rise. Lower unemployment usually forces up wages as employers bid for a dwindling supply of job-hunters. Higher paychecks can also push up prices. Some Fed policymakers have already warned that unemployment is low enough to spur higher ination. But Fed Chair Janet Yellen has said the unemployment rate may exaggerate the strength of the job market. For example, there were 7.1 million people working part-time jobs last month even though they want full-time work. That gure is up from just 4.6 million before the recession. And among the 9.3 million unemployed, 3 million have been out of work for more than six months. That gure has declined in the past three years but is still more than twice its precession level. Another example: The share of adults working or looking for work fell to just under 63 percent last month, the lowest level in 36 years. Thats down from 66 percent before the recession. About half that decline has occurred because of increasing retirements by baby boomers and other demographic changes, economists say. But much of the rest has occurred because many of the unemployed have gotten discouraged and have given up looking for work.JOBLESSFROM PAGE 1 them to a storage facility, according to Dallas County Fire Marshal Robert De Los Santos. Once the proper permits are issued, the materials were to be hauled away for permanent disposal, probably by incineration at a landll. The rst Ebola diagnosis in the U.S. has raised concerns about whether the disease that has killed 3,400 people in West Africa could spread in the U.S. Federal health ofcials are condent they can keep it in check. Elsewhere, NBC News reported that an American freelance cameraman working for the network in Liberia has tested positive for the virus and will be own back to the United States, along with the rest of the news crew. Neighbors stood on their balconies and watched the familys grim departure from behind the black tarp hung to shield their front door from view. The family was placed in a Dallas County deputys patrol car and driven away, apparently leaving with nothing more than the clothes they wore. The private residence where they will stay had been offered only a short time earlier. Until then, a search for shelter had come up short. The city had been refused by hotels, apartments and other providers. No one wants this family, said Sana Sayed, a Dallas city spokeswoman. The family living in the apartment has been conned to their home under armed guard while public health ofcials monitor them part of an intense effort to contain the deadly disease before it can get a foothold in the United States. Louise Troh, originally from Liberia, shares the apartment with her 13-year-old son and two nephews. When the decontamination is complete, even the crews protective suits are to be burned, said Tamara Smith, ofce manager for the Cleaning Guys of Fort Worth. Judge Clay Jenkins, Dallas Countys top administrative ofcial, said he went to the apartment with two epidemiologists to apologize for the delay in removing the soiled items, which happened ve days after Duncan was admitted to the hospital. I am concerned for this family, he said. I want to see this family treated the way I would want to see my own family treated.EBOLAFROM PAGE 1 WASHINGTON (MCT) In the face of growing Republican calls for travel restrictions on Ebola-ravaged areas in West Africa, the Obama administration on Friday sought to reassure anxious Americans that current safeguards were enough to keep the deadly virus from gaining a foothold on U.S. soil. In a rare White House brieng on Friday afternoon, top administration health, security and military personnel made it clear that no travel bans were being contemplated. They argued that such restrictions would make it harder to get volunteer medical personnel to Ebola-stricken countries if people wouldnt be able to leave once after they arrive. Right now we believe those types of steps actually impede the response, said Lisa Monaco, deputy national security adviser and assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism. They impede and slow down the ability of the United States and other international partners to actually get expertise and capabilities and equipment into the affected areas. The administrations push-back came as the nations latest Ebola scare landed only a few miles from the White House on Friday when an unidentied patient who recently traveled to Nigeria was admitted to Howard University Hospital in the District of Columbia with Ebola-like symptoms. In an abundance of caution, we have activated the appropriate infection control protocols, including isolating the patient, hospital spokeswoman KerryAnn Hamilton said in a statement to local media. Our medical team continues to evaluate and monitor progress in close collaboration with the (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and the Department of Health. By Friday evening, test results had not determined whether the patient would be the second conrmed case of Ebola diagnosed in the United States. At this time, there are no conrmed cases of Ebola at Howard University or in the District of Columbia, Hamilton said in a statement. Earlier Friday, another Ebola scare prompted the Cobb County Jail outside Atlanta to stop accepting inmates after a man arrested for driving under the inuence developed a fever and told jail ofcials he had recently traveled to Africa. The inmate later tested negative for Ebola. As cracks emerge in efforts to contain the disease in Africa, more Ebola discoveries and false alarms are expected nationwide. To date, 15 people have been tested for the virus in the U.S. But the rst, and thus far only, person to be diagnosed with Ebola in America remains hospitalized in Dallas.White House reassures public on Ebola scare striking our people, so it is only right that we continue to strike the neck of your people, the masked militant in the video said. National Security Council Spokesperson Caitlin Hayden conrmed that Kassig was being held by Islamic State militants, in a statement issued Friday evening. At this point we have no reason to doubt the authenticity of the video released earlier today. We will continue to use every tool at our disposal military, diplomatic, law enforcement and intelligence to try to bring Peter home to his family, Hayden said. The Associated Press could not immediately verify the videos authenticity, though it was released in the same manner as other Islamic State group videos and the masked militant sounded similar to the one who carried out the other slayings. In a statement, the British Foreign Ofce said it was working to verify the video. If true, this is a fur ther disgusting murder, the statement read. We are offering the family every support possible; they ask to be left alone at this time.HENNINGFROM PAGE 1 operations against the Islamic State group. Kurdish officials and activists said that Islamic State group fighters had so far not penetrated the frontier town as fighting raged on the eve of a major Muslim holiday. It looks like they are going to attack tonight and try to enter (Kobani) on the day of the feast, said Nasser Haj Mansour, a defense official in Syrias Kurdish region, referring to the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha that begins on Saturday in most Muslim countries. Kurdish fighters are ready and prepared to repel any attack. Haj Mansour said shelling of Kobani on Friday afternoon killed three civilians. Kobani and its surrounding areas have been under attack since mid-September, with militants capturing dozens of nearby Kurdish villages. The assault, which has forced some 160,000 Syrians to ee, has left the Kurdish militiamen scrambling to repel the militants advance into the outskirts of the town, also known as Ayn Arab. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that some 3,000 Kurds were stuck on the Syria-Turkish border, prevented by Turkish authorities from crossing to safety. The Observatory, which monitors Syrias civil war, reported intense fighting Friday to the east and southeast of Kobani, where it said seven Islamic State fighters and 13 Kurdish militiamen were killed. The assault came despite renewed U.S.led airstrikes in the area. The United States has been bombing the Islamic State group across Syria since last week and in neighboring Iraq since early August.KOBANIFROM PAGE 1

My dad was so upset that he had a nervous breakdown over this loss. The reason for this writing is that our home and auto insurance agent told me that a government agency called Financial Underwriters Regulatory Corp. may be partially reimbursing investors for their CD losses. LH, Minneapolis Dear LH: Your insur ance agent is referring to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, a bootless, self-important regulatory agency that couldnt stop a chick en from crossing the street. FINRA is staffed by gaggles of insipid government lawyers and accountants who private industry wouldnt deign to hire. And no, they wont reimburse your dads losses. For decades, Bernie Madoff ran a Ponzi scheme so well that investors were begging him to steal their money. And in 2009, Bernie pleaded guilty to the biggest Ponzi scheme in the history of our galaxy. However, it took Harry Markopolos, a widely respected forensic accountant, 10 years to convince FINRA that Bernie was a crook. Red ags were as visible as ares. Allen Stanford also ran a Ponzi scheme, selling high-yield CDs from his Antigua bank. He eeced $8 billion from 28,000 investors and was sentenced to federal prison in June 2012. U.S. District Judge Robert Scola recently ruled that the SEC knew that Stanford was running a Ponzi scheme as early as 1997 and wouldnt take action. Again, the red ags at FINRA and SEC headquarters were posted on every wall and ignored. Some observers suggest that Bernie and Allen used a portion of their huge cash ows to make certain the right regulators didnt regulate. And a stockbroker for whom I have no respect bragged to me six years ago that his rm knows how to handle FINRA lawyers to make problems disappear. But there is a dim light at the end of the tunnel. You may be able to sue the SEC. U.S. District Judge Robert Scola Jr. recently ruled that two of Stanfords victims can proceed with a claim against the SEC. Scola noted that SEC accountants and lawyers were told in 1997, 1998, 2003 and 2004 that Stanford was running a Ponzi scheme. However, these bureaucrats declined to report their conclusions until 2009. Meanwhile, you can write to U.S. District Judge Robert Scola at 400 N. Miami Ave., Miami, FL 33128. His ofce can give you the information your dad needs to proceed. Email Malcolm Berko at regulators Malcolm Berko Q: Just wondering if there is an app that would enable us to check info on houses that are listed for sale? We are going to buy another house when we sell ours. We drive around and see houses for sale and wonder how much, etc. A: There are many apps available to do this. Based on accuracy, easeof-use, and the range of features, I recommend the app. The app was developed by the National Association of Realtors. This app pulls its data directly from Realtor MLS systems across the country. Data is refreshed every 15 minutes. The fact that this app directly mirrors MLS data makes it the most accurate app available. The interface is simple and intuitive. You can enter your criteria, or search for all homes, condos, lots, or rentals. It is GPS enabled. Tapping Nearby for Sale shows your location on an aerial map with bubbles appearing over nearby homes for sale. So, for example, you can pull up to a home with a for-sale sign, tap this feature, and then tap the bubble for photos and listing details. Another handy feature is the ability to call the listing agent directly by tapping the phone number in the Presented by section. This is in contrast to most other apps that make their money by steering you toward Realtors who pay for this exposure. The only negative I see in the app is that it does not include a link to the virtual tour. I expect this to be corrected soon. You can view the virtual tour by browsing to the desktop version of Or email a request to the listing agent directly from the app. To download the app to an Apple device (iPhone or iPad), go to the iTunes App Store and search for To download the app to an Android device, go to the Google Play store and search for Q: Is there any downside to building a new home in an older neighborhood? Lots in one area are selling for about $20,000 less than the lots in the newer sections. I am thinking that the $20,000 in savings would be better spent on upgrades. A: Unless the older neighborhood is in a historic area or waterfront area, I would be reluctant to build a new home there for several reasons. The rst is functional obsolescence. This term has several denitions, including a location that sticks out like a sore thumb. Heres a real-life example. There is a street in Rotonda where the median age of homes on that street was 34 years as of 2006. That same year, a developer built a brand new home on that street and listed it for over $340,000. To comply with current ood codes, the rst oor was built to an elevation of 10 feet. The surrounding homes built three decades earlier were at an elevation of 6 feet. No doubt, this new house was the nicest home on the street. But it stuck out like a sore thumb as it towered over the 1970s homes. The seller had to slash the price repeatedly. Listed at over $340,000, the home eventually sold for under $225,000. The rule of thumb is that you want your home to be the least expensive home on the block. That will lift its market value. Conversely, having the most expensive home on the block will pull the value of your home down. Another consideration is that when you build or sell your home, the appraiser will be inuenced by the value of surrounding homes. Older homes surrounding the subject home will pull the value down.

Brett Slattery NEW YORK (AP) Investors think the U.S. economy is at a perfect temperature for stocks: not too hot, not too cold. The latest evidence came Friday in a jobs report that showed a pickup in hiring last month that could mean more people with pay checks, more spending and higher corporate prots. But the report also showed that wages were stagnant, which cheered investors wor ried anything pushing up ination could prompt the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates soon and kill the rally. All major stock indexes rose sharply. The Dow Jones industrial average closed 208 points higher. The rally started from the open and swept up nearly every kind of stock, small and large, and in almost every industry. All 10 sectors in the Standard and Poors 500 index rose. The Dow rose 208.64, or 1.2 percent, to 17,009.69. It was the third 200-point move in a little over a week as markets turn more volatile. The S&P 500 index climbed 21.73 points, or 1.1 percent, to 1,967.90. The Nasdaq composite rose 45.43 points, or 1 percent, to 4,447.62. Earlier in the week, investors were rattled by a sharp drop in small-company stocks, pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, and falling oil prices that hurt energy companies, big components in stock indexes.Dow jumps 208 on job gains

Between 15 and 20 percent of Floridas 100,000 prisoners have been diagnosed with a mental health condition that requires treatment. The ombudsman will work with about 1,000 inmates with severe mental illness who are admitted to inpatient units. Secretary Mike Crews said the agency also is beeng up crisis intervention training to help guards working with mentally ill prisoners. DOC ofcials in recent weeks have also red nearly 50 prison employ ees, including several over abuse allegations that they punched and beat inmates. The growing prison scandal has been problem atic for the administration of Gov. Rick Scott, who is facing a close election race next month. The Miami Herald reported that the governors chief inspector general received an anonymous letter in Oct. 2012 that included details about prisoners who had died while in state custody and warned of cronyism and cover-ups are destroying the department. But instead of opening an inqui ry, Melinda Miguel turned it over to the inspector general at the Department of Corrections, which conducted a cursory review. The letter included details about the deaths of Randall Jordan-Aparo at Franklin Correctional Institution in 2010 and Darren Rainey at Dade Correctional in 2012. Rainey, a mentally ill prisoner, was punished in 2012 with a shower so hot that his skin separated from his body. JordanAparo was reportedly gassed while in a conne ment cell. The Scott administration has said the letter came after criminal investigations had been launched. The questions sur rounding the prison systems handling of the cases has resulted in the Florida Department of Law Enforcement being placed in charge of investigating 82 cases in which prison inmates died from non-natural causes. A mental health advocacy group has also led a lawsuit against the department, alleging that ofcials and contractors ignored widespread abuse of mentally ill inmates in a Miami prison.Florida prison officials hire ombudsman For information, call 941-764-6661.

Tournament president Brian Gleason announced Friday that the tournament has been canceled due to a lack of entries. The Charlotte County Open was set to open next Saturday at Rotonda Palms, and nish next Sunday at Kingsway. Now, golfers who had signed up for the event will be scrambling to nd another option. Gleason said that as of Friday, only 41 golfers had signed up. We didnt have the amount of players needed to have a tournament called the Charlotte County Open, Gleason said. He added that the tournament committee will continue to look at ways to make the event viable for a return in 2015. Austin Schultz won last year, shooting 140 at Kingsway and Riverwood. The event has four two-time winners: Dave Hronek, Derek Lamely, Joey Lamielle and Gary Sica.

Four plays later, the Tarpons scored a touchdown. From there, the rout was on at the Wallace Keller Sports Complex. Charlotte racked up 447 yards and seven touchdowns against the Raiders, cruising to a 46-21 rout in a game that included a 30-minute lightning delay early in the fourth quarter. Weve done it all year, and they didnt look like they were ready for it, Charlotte coach Binky Waldrop said of the opening kickoff. The kids did a good job.

Not even as the DeSoto County High School quarterback hobbled around the eld at Bayshores Balvanz Stadium with his right knee wrapped in ice. When youve just helped your team to its rst 5-0 start since 2007, the rest is merely details. Jones ran for three touchdowns and passed for two more in DeSoto Countys 41-3 rout of Bayshore on Friday, the Bulldogs second straight victory in District 5A-13. We love it, Jones said. I love it. We all love it. Weve got a lot of swagger. Jones deserved every bit of it, rushing for 112 yards and completing 7 of 12 passes for 62 more. But it was a comprehensive victory, with the DeSoto County defense limiting Bayshore to 142 yards the bulk of them coming after the game had long been decided.

It was 92 degrees at gametime, and things quickly got more heated during a surprising slugfest. St. Louis over came a five-run deficit against Kershaw and held on when Trevor Rosenthal blew an 100 mph fastball past Yasiel Puig with a runner on third to end a back-and-forth game that lasted nearly four hours.

The biggest play wasnt the game-winning touchdown or the big throw that set it up. It was the pass that went nowhere that saved the game. Thats one of the paradoxes of the two-minute drill, which features its own set of rules that often mean the difference between victory and defeat.

Alyssa Latham had a career night Wednesday for the Georgia Regents University Augusta volleyball team. The Charlotte High School graduate, who competed for two years at State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota, is in her rst season at GRU, which was 12-4 entering Friday. She had a career-high 42 set assists and added 10 digs in a win over University of Montevallo, one of two matches that day. The whole team was really on, she said Thursday. Everythings really owed together. Latham had 28 set assists in a victory over Clark Atlanta University in the other match. As of Friday, she ranked ninth in set assists among Peach Belt Conference players. We have a lot of talent. I expect us to do well, she said. One of the big differences the 5-foot7 Latham noticed in Division II is everyones taller. I was so short out there. The play also is faster. Its a lot of juniors and seniors, she said. Its girls who have a lot of experience. MORE WOMENS VOLLEYBALL Freshman middle blocker Devyn Main, a Lemon Bay High School graduate, is second in blocks for Nova Southeastern University.

BEIJING Top-ranked Stacy Lewis birdied the nal hole Friday for a 5-under 68 and a twostroke lead over fellow Texan Brittany Lang after the second round of the Reignwood LPGA Classic. It was a day that I just had to stay patient, Lewis said. Even coming in, I could have made a few more birdies. Didnt quite hit the shots around the greens that I needed to. Lewis had a 12-under 134 at Reignwood Pine Valley. She leads the tour with three victories and earnings of $2,214,143. Last year, she nished a stroke behind Shanshan Feng after the Chinese player eagled the par-5 18th. Germanys Caroline Masson, South Koreas Mirim Lee, Spains Belen Mozo and Swedens Caroline Hedwall were tied for third at 8 under. Jacquelin emerges from pack at Alfred Dunhill Links Championship: In St. Andrews, Scotland, Raphael Jacquelin of France birdied his closing two holes for a 2-under 70 to break clear of a tightly packed leaderboard and take a one-shot lead after the second round of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Four players Irish duo Padraig Harrington and Shane Lowry along with Frenchman Alexander Levy and Englands Oliver Wilson were in a tie for second, with three others another shot back. At one stage late in the day, nine players were tied for the lead before Harrington jumped in front and Jacquelin then leapfrogged him with his strong finish for a 9-under total of 135. | GOLF SCOREBOARDLPGA TourLPGA REIGNWOOD CLASSIC At Pine Valley Golf Club Beijing Purse: $2.1 million Yardage: 6,585; Par: 73 Stacy Lewis 66-68 Brittany Lang 70-66 Mirim Lee 70-68 Caroline Masson 70-68 Belen Mozo 69-69 Caroline Hedwall 67-71 Yanhong Pan 71-68 Ilhee Lee 69-70 Suzann Pettersen 74-66 Sydnee Michaels 71-69 Amy Yang 70-70 Sandra Gal 72-69 Eun-Hee Ji 72-69 So Yeon Ryu 72-69 Chella Choi 71-70 Haeji Kang 69-72 Inbee Park 69-72 Jenny Shin 68-73 Sun Young Yoo 68-73 Mariajo Uribe 73-69 Pernilla Lindberg 72-70 Austin Ernst 71-71 Karine Icher 74-69 Yuting Shi 74-69 Liying Ye 73-70 Giulia Sergas 71-72 Meena Lee 74-70 Kelly Tan 74-70 Mi Jung Hur 73-71 Amy Anderson 72-72 Catriona Matthew 72-72 Yani Tseng 69-75 Jaye Marie Green 76-69 Tiany Joh 76-69 Dewi Claire Schreefel 74-71 Line Vedel 74-71 Ji Young Oh 73-72 Mi Hyang Lee 69-76 Na Yeon Choi 75-71 Shanshan Feng 75-71 Jiayun Li 75-71 Xin Wang 74-72 Na Zhang 73-73 Sarah Kemp 72-74 a-Ziyi Wang 77-70 Moriya Jutanugarn 74-73 Thidapa Suwannapura 73-74 Pornanong Phatlum 72-75 Marina Alex 76-72 Dori Carter 76-72 Danielle Kang 75-73 Katie Burnett 74-74 I.K.

Avoiding mistakes in the final 120 seconds often comes down to a seemingly obvious factor: Understanding the situation. Do you need a touchdown or a field goal? What side of the field does your kicker prefer? How many timeouts does each team have? When should you step out of bounds, and when should you fight for the extra yard? Bucs coaches pound those specifics every Thursday, when they practice two-minute drills by tweaking the distance, clock and timeouts to prepare for as many scenarios as possible. We go through all the situations, running back Bobby Rainey said. When that time comes in a game, it wont be a surprise for us. Few quarterbacks have had more success in two-minute drills than Sundays opponent, New Orleans Drew Brees. Pro-Football-Reference. com credits Brees with 34 career game-winning drives, tied with Fran Tarkenton for the seventh-most in league history. Brees led the Saints on a 54-yard drive last September to set up the winning field goal in a 16-14 win over the Bucs. I think so much of a two-minute drill is just managing the situation, Brees said. You know youre going to go down and score. Now its a matter of figuring out how to do it. And how you do it comes down to the circumstances you face. In his sixth career start with San Diego, Brees had only 2:24 to drive 71 yards. So three of his five completions went at least 16 yards before he fired the game-winning pass to beat Kansas City. Four years later, Brees reacted completely differently. With 8:26 left, Brees bled the clock in a 16-play drive. Only one of his eight passes went downfield to set up a 31-yard field goal as time expired. Brees said success comes from using the entire game to test matchups and learn what scares the defense, then applying what you learned during the final drive. But even that comes with wrinkles. A coor dinator might blitz sparingly throughout the game but charge seven defenders at the quarter back late. Youve got to be in tune with that kind of stuff, center Evan Dietrich-Smith said. Know what your answers are. Last week the Bucs knew how to answer when Pittsburgh dropped into a Cover 2 late. The Bucs called a pass play they installed that week specifically to beat that defense. Mike Glennon hit Louis Murphy in a soft spot over the middle for a 41-yard gain to set up the winning score. More than anything, its just giving them a set of principles they can be confident in doing in a clutch situation in a hostile environment, interim offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo said. How they handle the hostile environment is important, too, and another paradox of the two-minute drill.BUCSFROM PAGE 1 ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Just 300 days after putting his name in the record books with the longest eld goal ever, Matt Prater is history. At least in Denver. The Broncos cut ties Friday with the eighthyear kicker whos about to come off his four-game suspension. That means rst-year kicker Brandon McManus has turned his temp job with the AFC champs into a full-time one. From the moment the Giants traded him to the Broncos in late August, McManus looked at Denver not as a stopover but as a destination. He said last month that his aim was to convince the Broncos he, and not Prater, was their man. Still, he was surprised hed done just that. I mean, Matt had a great year last year and hes done very well for himself. I still consider him in the top three kickers in the NFL, McManus said. Just the chance the Broncos are giving me (shows) the condence they have in me and Im excited with that opportunity. Bironas driving drunk on night of death: The toxicology report shows former Titans kicker Rob Bironas had a blood alcohol content more than twice the legal limit for driving in Tennessee when he died in a one-vehicle crash. Testing released by the Davidson County Medical Examiners Office shows Bironas had a blood alcohol level of 0.218 percent. Tennessees limit for driving under the influence is 0.08 percent. The toxicology report also said a low level of diazepam or Valium also was detected, but at a level so low to have a negligible effect according to a release. Saints lose safety Byrd: The struggling New Orleans defense was dealt a significant setback when the team learned that three-time Pro Bowl safety Jairus Byrd will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury. Byrd injured his lateral meniscus during practice on Thursday, coach Sean Payton said, and had surgery two days before New Orleans home game against Tampa Bay. Cowboys owner defends decision not to suspend Spillman: Dallas owner Jerry Jones said the sexual assault investigation involving C.J. Spillman differs from other cases that have led to criticism of the league because the special teams player hasnt been arrested or charged. Jones said on his radio show that it becomes a different situation for us if police decide charges are warranted. Jones repeated coach Jason Garretts assertion a day earlier than Spillman would remain active during the investigation. Smith, Manziel fined: New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith was fined $12,000 by the NFL for cursing at a fan after the teams game against Detroit last Sunday. Smith was walking off the field following the 24-17 defeat when he glared at a heckler in the stands and yelled at him, twice using an exple tive. The fine issued by the league was for unsportsmanlike conduct. The second-year quarterback immediately apologized after the game, but acknowledged during the week that he would likely be fined for his actions. Cleveland rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel received a similar fine from the league during the preseason for flipping his middle finger at Washingtons sideline. NFL hires adviser on domestic conduct: The NFL hired Beth E. Richie as a senior adviser on domestic conduct. Richie is the director of the Institute of Research on Race and Public Policy and a professor of African-American studies, criminology, sociology, gender and womens studies, and criminal law and justice at Illinois-Chicago. She is considered a leading expert on issues of sexual assault. Around the league: Drew Stanton will start at quarterback for the Cardinals on Sunday. Chiefs wide receiver Donnie Avery had surgery for a sports hernia and was ruled out for Sundays game at San Francisco, though he is expected back later this season. The Titans listed quarterback Jake Locker as probable on the final injury report.Broncos release Prater in favor of McManus NFL NOTEBOOKBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSAP PHOTONew York Jets quarterback Geno Smith walks o the eld after a loss to Detroit last Sunday.Smith was caught yelling an expletive, and he was ned $12,000 on Friday.

Not only because the Orioles are capable of scoring in bunches, but more importantly, they were going up against Detroits leaky bullpen. Delmon Young drove in three runs with a pinch-hit double, and Baltimore used a four-run eighth to pull out a 7-6 victory Friday for a 2-0 lead in the best-of-ve AL Division Series.Baltimore will try for a sweep in Game 3 Sunday at Detroit, when Miguel Gonzalez starts against the Tigers third straight Cy Young winner, David Price.Its huge going into Detroit up 2-0, said J.J. Hardy, who scored the go-ahead run with a sweeping slide. Weve got to go over there and do our job. A day after the Orioles battered Detroit relievers during an eight-run eighth that produced a 12-3 win, they pushed the Tigers to the brink of elimination with an uprising against the beleaguered duo of Joba Chamberlain and Joakim Soria the primary victims on Thursday night. It was 6-3 with one out in the eighth when Chamberlain hit Adam Jones with a pitch and gave up a single to Nelson Cruz. Steve Pearce singled in a run, and the towel-waving, orange-clad fans among the sellout crowd of 48,058 sensed another comeback win by a team that won 10 games during the regular season during its nal at-bat. Soria entered and walked Hardy to load the bases for Young, who lined the rst pitch into the left-eld corner. Giants 3, Nationals 2: In Washington, Jake Peavy took a no-hitter into the fifth inning to outpitch playoff rookie Stephen Strasburg, and San Francisco won its ninth consecutive postseason game by beating Washington in an NL Division Series opener. The intense Peavy won the 2007 Cy Young Award but never has been much of an October performer, going 0-3 with a 9.27 ERA in five previous starts. But maybe the Giants aura rubbed off on him, because the 33-year-old right-hander threw 5 scoreless innings in Game 1, allowing only two hits. Royals 3, Angels 2, 11 innings: In Anaheim, Calif., Mike Moustakas homered leading off the 11th inning on Thursday night, and Kansas City kept rolling in its first postseason in 29 years with a victory over the Los Angeles Angels in the AL Division Series opener. Moustakas hit the first extra-inning homer in postseason history for the Royals, a high shot off Fernando Salas that barely reached the elevated right-field stands at Angel Stadium.Os rally to go up 2-0BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MLB ROUNDUPPeavy outduels Strasburg in Giants win AP PHOTOBaltimores J.J. Hardy celebrates with teammates after scoring the go-ahead run in the eighth inning of Fridays game. The Orioles rallied to beat the Tigers 7-6. 20-games winners, Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright hit Puig with a pitch leading off the third, triggering a benchclearing scrum. There was shoving and shouting, but no punches were thrown. Wainwright succumbed first on the mound, allowing six runs and 11 hits in 423 innings. But Kershaw failed once again in the postseason. The left-hander whose 1.77 ERA led the major leagues for the fourth consecutive year came in eager to erase the memory of his poor showing in Game 6 of last years NL Championship Series, when the Dodgers were eliminated by the Cardinals. And Kershaw dominated through the first six innings, retiring 16 in a row between homers by Randal Grichuk and Carpenter. But he collapsed in a shaky seventh, when he gave up five of the Cardinals eight runs and became the first pitcher in postseason history to allow seven runs in consecutive starts. He yielded that many in losing Game 6 last year. Kershaw, a heavy favorite to win a third Cy Young Award in four years, fell to 1-4 with a career 5.19 ERA in the postseason. The Dodgers rallied again in the ninth, pulling to 10-9 after Dee Gordons RBI groundout scored A.J. Ellis, who singled. But Puig struck out swinging against Rosenthal, who reached 100 mph on five of the seven pitches in the at-bat. Adrian Gonzalez pulled the Dodgers to 10-8 with a two-run homer in the eighth off Randy Choate. They had the potential tying run at the plate when pinch-hitter Justin Turner grounded to third to end the inning. The Cardinals ripped four consecutive singles to center field to open the seventh. Matt Adams and Jon Jay had RBI singles, drawing them to 6-4.CARDSFROM PAGE 1 Golf Directory 5301 HERON CREEK BLVD., NORTH PORT Between US 41 & I-75 Exit 182 423-6955 Take a tour online at: Nice People, Great Golf Call 625-6911 for Tee Times & Lessons Deep Creek Golf Club KINGSWAY COUNTRY CLUB BECOME A MEMBER FOR THE DAY 1 mile east off I-75 exit 170 (Kings Highway).

Associated Press KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Tennessee has reason to believe its on the verge of ending nearly a decade of frustration against Florida. The Volunteers (2-2, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) are slight favorites today as they attempt to end a nine-game losing streak in this annual series. This marks only the second time in the last 10 years Tennessee has been favored over the Gators. The Vols acknowledge their condence level is higher than in previous meetings with Florida. It denitely feels different, said Tennessee defensive tackle Jordan Williams, who grew up in Gainesville. Last year, you could kind of see guys werent 100 percent in their condence. This year, I feel everyones on the same page. Tennessees 35-32 loss at No. 13 Georgia in its SEC opener last week has given the Vols faith they can compete with just about anyone in the SEC. Florida (2-1, 1-1) eked out a 36-30 overtime win over Kentucky and lost 42-21 to No. 3 Alabama in its rst two conference games. The Gators had two weeks to prepare for Tennessee after the Alabama game and say they regrouped during the long layoff. We had to pull back together mentally and on and off the eld, Florida running back Matt Jones said. Weve gotten better as a team. I mean, its going to be tough because people throw stuff at us that we dont want to hear, but were going to pull together and get these Ws. The only previous time Tennessee was favored over Florida during its losing streak in this series came when the Gators last visited Knoxville in 2012. That 2012 Tennessee team featured eventual rst-round draft picks Cordarrelle Patterson and JaWuan James and second-round selection Justin Hunter. Gators quarterback Jeff Driskel said Neyland Stadium that night was probably the loudest place Ive played. Florida came from behind to beat Tennessee 37-20 and silenced that sellout crowd with a dominant fourth-quarter performance. The Gators would love to see history repeat itself Saturday. We pride ourselves on emptying the stadium, so we just want to go in and play hard and hopefully we get the same result as the last time we went in there, Driskel said. Florida has converted just 34 percent of its third-down situations to rank 13th out of 14 SEC teams in that category. Tennessee leads all FBS teams in third-down conversion defense. The Vols have allowed opponents to convert on just 20.8 percent of their thirddown opportunities. Florida has spent its layoff trying to boost its pass defense after getting picked apart through the air by Kentucky and No. 3 Alabama. The Gators gave up 369 yards passing to Kentucky though they did have three interceptions in that game and allowed 449 yards passing to Alabama. We have not played well enough in the secondary, Florida coach Will Muschamp said. SPOTLIGHT: FloridaAP PHOTOTennessee quarterback Justin Worley throws against Georgia last week in Athens, Ga. Worley has been practicing this week with a padded sleeve on his right elbow, injured in the loss to the Bulldogs. He said he should be 100 percent for todays game.Vols seek end to streakConfident Tennessee meets a rested Florida squad By STEVE MEGARGEEASSOCIATED PRESS Somewhere out there is a college football team lurking on the fringes of the rankings, one that hasnt been talked up as a playoff contender, but is primed to make a run. So who is it?1MAYBE ITS ARIZONA The Wildcats made a case to be this seasons gate-crasher with a surprising 31-24 victory at No. 2 Oregon on Thursday night, starting the biggest weekend of the college football season so far with the biggest surprise of the college football season so far. Nobody gave us a shot but this is a statement that Arizona is here to play, Wildcats linebacker Scooby Wright said. The Wildcats gave college football a reminder that once October rolls around, you can forget about what you thought you knew in August. Now the season really starts. Arizona will no doubt vault into the rankings come Sunday, and well see if the Wildcats, who needed a last-second touchdown pass to complete a miracle comeback against California two weeks ago, have the staying power to make a run in a tough Pac-12.2WILL HISTORY REPEAT? It wasnt until the seventh week of the 2013 regular season that Auburn even entered the rankings. The Tigers were the ultimate off-theradar crew, coming off a winless Southeastern Conference season in 2012 to make a run all the way to the BCS championship game. Auburns turnaround was historic, but contenders emerging outside the early season favorites in October is routine. The Tigers werent even the only team that went from unranked to national title contender last year. Missouri made a similar run in the SEC East, going from losing team to the top-five heading into championship weekend. In 2012, Notre Dame started the season unranked and Kansas State was No. 22. By the middle of October, both were in the top five. When November rolled around, the Wildcats and Fighting Irish were at the heart of the BCS championship race, and it was eventually Notre Dame playing for the national title. More often what you get is what happened in 2010, when another Auburn team, this one led by a junior college transfer quarterback named Cam Newton, went from No. 22 in the preseason to No. 1 at the end.3WHAT ABOUT THE FROGS AND HUSKERS? Maybe No. 25 TCU is that team. The Horned Frogs are coming off a losing season, but they entered the rankings this week, just in time to play No. 4 Oklahoma, and with No. 7 Baylor next on the Big 12 schedule. Nebraska has a chance to be that team, too. The Huskers fell out of the rankings a few weeks ago, after strug gling to beat McNeese State. Theyre back at No. 19 and heading to No. 10 Michigan State today. For all the grief the Big Ten has gotten, an undefeated run through it would put Nebraska in the mix for a playoff spot.4DONT COUNT OUT OREGON The Ducks will tumble but you can all but guarantee there wont be four unbeaten teams from the five major conferences on selection Sunday. It never happened in the BCS era. The committee is going to be sorting through one-loss teams to fill four spots, and if the Ducks can fix their flaws and win a Pac-12 title, that misstep Thursday night could be a distant memory. With quarterback Marcus Mariota returning for another year, Oregon had cruised through its nonconference slate, including a 46-27 victory at home against the then-No. 7 Spartans. Many called it a statement-making win: The Ducks seemed headed straight to college footballs first playoff. But the Ducks showed vulnerabil ities in a conference-opening 38-31 road win over Washington State. Mariota was sacked seven times. The weaknesses were amplified in the loss to Arizona. Mariota was sacked five times Thursday night, including a hit by Wright on what would turn out to be the Ducks final drive of the game. Associated PressQUARTER REPORT MIAMIKaaya keeps on keeping on for CanesCORAL GABLES Brad Kaaya is becoming a creature of habit. Football, eat, class, eat, study, eat, sleep. Not too difcult, Miamis true freshman quarterback said. Its routine now, and heres something else hed like to see become routine: No interceptions. Kaaya had the rst inter ception-free game of his young college career in last weeks win over Duke, and will aim for his rst road win tonight when Miami (3-2, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) goes into Atlanta to face Georgia Tech (4-0, 1-0). Kaaya and the Hurricanes are 3-0 at home this season, but 0-2 on the road. No Miami team has started 0-3 away from home since 1995, the year Kaaya was born. And though the regular season will be only half-over when the nal whistle blows in Atlanta, the Hurricanes know a loss would put a big hurt on their ACC Coastal Division chances. Its going to be important for (Kaaya) to protect the ball against this group because they do a great job with their vision and break and intercepting balls, Miami coach Al Golden said. They have a down four that can get to you, and they also have a pressure package that has been very successful. So I dont think theres any question that hes going to have to protect the ball again. Kaaya threw seven interceptions at least two werent entirely his fault in the rst four games. He wasnt picked off last week, threw two spectacular touchdown passes and helped Miami top Duke 22-10. Miamis losses so far have been at Louisville and at Nebraska, both night games, both with plenty of buildup. If noth ing else, going through those games should make Kaaya feel more comfortable in this one. Kaayas road numbers have been ne; hes been a touch more accurate on the road (63 percent) than at home (60 percent). But the Yellow Jackets have been great against the pass this season, allowing three touchdowns in 109 attempts through their rst four games. Still, Miami has plenty of faith in Kaaya. Hes not even close to where hes going to be, Miami wide receiver Phillip Dorsett said. Ive got a lot of faith in him.

The coachs strategy worked to near perfection, with the United States shooting a team-record 71 percent in a 94-72 rout at the womens world championship Friday night. Brittney Griner had 17 points and Tina Charles 15 for the U.S., which will face Australia in the seminals. Coach said that we were just going to keep going inside, the 6-foot-8 Griner said.

The 35-year-old Indiana star will play two more WNBA seasons for the Fever. Catchings has played her entire professional career with the team, winning a title in 2012.HORSE RACINGTrainer ONeill banned from world championships: The Breeders Cup banned trainer Doug ONeill from entering horses in this years world champi onships after he was suspended and fined by New York racing officials when one of his horses had a positive drug test. The ban is enforceable under the events convicted trainers rule, which prohibits trainers who have in the preceding 12 months been found by any racing regulatory agency to have violated rules forbidding the possession or use of any Class 1 or 2 substances. Breeders Cup President and CEO Craig Fravel said ONeill wont be allowed to pre-enter horses in the event to be run Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 at Santa Anita in Arcadia, California, because of the recent 45-day suspen sion and $10,000 fine handed down by the New York Gaming Commission against the trainer. In Arcadia, Calif., Mischief Clem won the $58,000 Dick Salter feature for 2-year-olds by 1 lengths at Santa Anita.TENNISNadal upset in China Open quarters: In Beijing, Rafael Nadal was upset by big-hitting qualifier Martin Klizan of Slovakia 6-7 (7), 6-4, 6-3 in the quarterfinals of the China Open.

Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray, meanwhile, set up a semifinal showdown with convincing wins.

Page 6 SP The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 PUNTA GORDA Coaches start worrying about points as the postseason approaches. They try to gure out how they can manuever their lineups and relays to score the most points in the county and district championships. Having someone like Charlotte High School freshman Alara Guvenli can make that job a little easier. Guvenli joined the Tarpons as a diver, but has excelled since being convinced to spend more time as a swimmer. As the Tarpon girls eye a second straight county championship today at Oyster Creek Pool in Englewood, Guvenli will likely swim in at least three events, including the teams primary 200 medley relay and 200 freestyle relay teams. They just sort of put me in because I used to swim with coach (Jeff) Cain and coach Jim (Lindberg), Guvenli said. They moved me from the B-relay to the A-relay already, which is really exciting. Shell also swim the 50-meter freestyle, where shes emerged as one of the fastest sprinters on the team. Guvenli swam the 50 freestyle in 29.15 seconds to take second place in Wednesdays dual meet against Venice. She keeps improving and she keeps trying, Cain said. Shes one of those, OK, Ill do it! types, so anytime we can use her, we will. Guvenlis success doesnt come as a shock to Cain and Lindberg, who coached her as a member of the CCS Blue Fins club from age ve to 11. They tried to persuade her to swim this year when she came out for diving, but Guvenli was reluctant because she remembered practices being the worst thing in the world. The holdout ended two weeks ago when she went to a morning practice for the rst time, but she remains a bit fresher than her fellow swimmers because she puts in work at the less-strenuous diving practices in the afternoons. Today, shell compete in her biggest meet of the season, and Cain will get a better sense of where to use her to score the most points when Charlotte hosts the District 3A-9 meet on Oct. 22 at South County Regional Park. Guvenli hopes to compete in diving at that meet she still needs to add two more dives to be eligible and to make it at least to regionals in her swimming events.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or plot for most pointsBy ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITER PREP SWIMMING: Charlotte County ChampionshipsPostseason planning takes precedence CHARLOTTE COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIPSWHO: Charlotte, Port Charlotte and Lemon Bay WHEN: Today, 10 a.m. WHERE: Oyster Creek Pool, Englewood TICKETS/ PARKING: Free PUNTA GORDA There will be more sh than usual at the Laishley Crab House this weekend.

Our line was holding up and allowing for our quarterback to throw, and the quarterback was putting it on the spot, Laurent said. Thats really it. Simms added three more touchdowns two passing, one rushing nishing 12 for 23 for 222 yards and an interception. Except for that one play, Brennan played real well. We ran the ball well. We didnt turn the ball over, Waldrop said. We came out and played from the start. The Tarpons scored 27 points before the Raiders took their 22nd offensive snap. Simms threw touchdown passes of four and ve yards and running back Elijah Mack ran for scores of nine and four yards as Charlotte opened up a commanding rst-half lead. Riverdale didnt score until there were 6.6 points remaining in the second quarter. Quarterback Jesse Lighthall plunged in from one yard out to cut the Tarpons lead to 27-7 at halftime. Things didnt improve much for Riverdales defense in the second half. Charlotte put three more touchdowns on the board in less than 13 minutes before the lightning delay, scoring on Simms 1-yard run, his 55-yard pass to wideout Trystan Beasley and Macks third touchdown plunge of the game. One of the few bright spots for the Raiders came on a 4th-and-20 from the Tarpons 38-yard line midway through the third quarter, when Lighthall found wide receiver Roderick Cochran for a 38-yard touchdown. Riverdale added one more touchdown in the nal minutes, with Lighthall nding Cochran, this one from 51 yards out. We denitely made improvements from two weeks ago, Waldrop said. Thats what we need to do.

DeSoto County (5-0, 2-0 in District 5A-13) stayed on top of the district with the victory. Bayshore (0-5, 0-2) fell to the bottom of the group. But there was a dark spot on the glow that was DeSoto Countys victory: Jones coming off the eld with a knee injury with 5:26 left in the third quarter. There was no immediate word on the severity of the injury, and Egloff declined to comment about it. I dont know yet, Jones said. Its just a little bit of pain. I cant bend it like I want to bend it. That puts his status for next weeks game at Frostproof in question. But he was feeling pretty good Friday night. It took Jones a little while to get going. It wasnt until DeSoto Countys second series that he scrambled in the pocket to buy time, then hit Tony Lee for a 62-yard touchdown with 5:03 left in the rst quarter. The Bulldogs scored on their next two possessions Jones rushing scores of four and 20 yards as they carved a 21-3 lead that a ragged Bayshore offense never threatened. It helped that DeSoto Countys defense kept stufng Bayshore. Stefan Williams and Alfredrick Tyson each had interceptions Williams was on a tipped pass on Bayshores third play from scrimmage. The Bruins didnt complete a pass for positive yardage until Chase Richardson completed a at pass to Jamar Johnson for an apparent 74-yard touchdown with 3:05 left to play. But that score was called back due to a block in the back. Penalties were a major issue for Bayshore, which had 15 for 175 yards. Richardson led the Bruins with 12 carries for 34 yards.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.comDESOTO COUNTY 41, BAYSHORE 3DeSoto County 13 21 0 7 41 Bayshore 3 0 0 0 3 First quarter DC Tony Lee 62 pass from Reggie Jones (Cesar Barajas kick), 5:03.

Page 4 The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 Today, I have absolutely no motivation. Its been that way all week. Right now, Im in Georgia spending time with my dad. Its peaceful here. The house sits on a rural wooded lot, far from the road. Im sitting on the front porch all I hear are the songs of birds, and the wind rustling the trees. Its a perfect day in early autumn in the South the temperature is in the mid-70s, and the air is fresh, cool and clear. All I want to do is put my toes in the soft grass, and feel the warmth of the sun on my shoulders and the breeze on my face. Its the kind of day that makes you want to be still, to stay quiet. While all this is good for my spirit, its wreaking havoc on my tness routine. If I were home in Southwest Florida, I would be doing something anything outside, walking the dog or maybe taking a hike at one of the state parks in the region. At home, tness and healthy eating are top-of-mind. Regular workouts at the gym are now part of my routine, and I only keep the fridge stocked with healthy food. I have to answer to my trainer and classmates when I stray. Co-workers, friends and family know about my 90-day tness journey. The encouragement has been overwhelming. But out of sight, out of mind. I was doing (reasonably) well sticking to a healthy diet during my time in Georgia, with the occasional potato chip or piece of chocolate. Then I discovered the Oreos. About half a bag later, I stepped on the scale. Im amazed I have actually lost a pound or two. But its getting tougher to get back to my normal heatlhy-eating-and-tness routine. And then I found a letter from a reader, Brenda, who in addition to helping me get back on track shared one of the most inspiring stories Ive yet heard. She was responding to a column Id written a few weeks back. She wrote: Karin, I have been following your efforts to reclaim your health with interest. Some background info: In April 2010 my husband was informed he had to have a triple bypass and aortic valve replacement to be performed in June. For that, he was to lose weight. I dieted with him and lost 25 pounds. We kept at it, and by October Id lost an additional 20 pounds. In Nov 2010 I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. For me, it was a do or die moment. Literally or Id probably have a heart attack or stroke. I had to change my lifestyle in particular my diet, or food plan as I prefer, and lose weight and exercise. I did those things by Dec 2013 Id lost 100 pounds and have kept it off, I exercise 60 minutes a day, 6 days a week using a treadmill and exercise bike at home. ... In April 2010, I weighed 235 pounds and wore, or could get into, a size 24 pants. Today I weight 131.4 pounds and wear a size 8-10 pants. ... Now, my reason for writing. Im not convinced you have changed your mindset that this going to be a permanent lifestyle change for you. That, as Im sure your trainer has explained, is mandatory. I relied on myself with the encouragement and praise from my primary care physician. Your trainers statement -90 percent of results come from diet is exactly correct. The exercise makes you t, shapes your body, increases endurance but doesnt contribute signicantly to weight loss contrary to what watching shows like The Biggest Loser would make you believe. I would also recommend that you start cooking, although it doesnt have to require heat or even much time. I have oatmeal in the morning made in the microwave old fashioned, plain with cinnamon no sweetener takes 2 minutes. Lunch and dinner are mainly raw veggies salads, sweet peppers, celery, radishes, cucumbers mushrooms most can be purchased ready to eat. Plain non-fat Greek yogurt, with added fresh fruit if you like or 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder for a dessert is quick, easy and full of protein. Lots of protein sources including tofu, beans, and pre-portioned and seasoned chicken and sh are available and take less than 10 min to cook. Plan a weeks worth of meals including snack and those that you must have on the go. Eating out check nutrition on the internet so you know what your choices are. Even after almost 4 years I still weigh and measure my food and once a month or so I check calorie intake. Remember that as you lose weight youll need fewer calories. So, Brenda, Im ditching the chips I was about to have with my turkey wrap. I will read this letter whenever I feel discouraged. Thank you for the encouragement and inspiration. Email: Getting back on trackBy KARIN LILLISFEELING FIT EDITOR EDITORS NOTE Parents and pediatricians will often reach for antibiotics to treat middle-ear infections, strep throat, fevers and other common ailments of childhood. But new research suggests that doing so, and prescrib ing broad-spectrum antibiotics in particular, increases those childrens risk of obesity, at least in early childhood. A new study finds that babies who got broad-spectrum antibiotics in their first two years of life, or who were prescribed four or more courses of antibiotics in that period, were more likely to be obese at some point between their second and fifth birthdays than were those who had taken no antibiotics, or who were treated with medications designed to target a narrow spectrum of disease-causing bacteria. Broad-spectrum antibiotics including amoxicillin, tetracycline, streptomycin, moxifloxacin and ciprofloxacin are intended for treatment of major systemic infections, in cases where the bacteria causing the illness has not been identified, or where a patient is under attack by a strain of bacteria resistant to standard antibiotics. While they can be highly effective, their antibiotic action is indiscriminate, and beneficial bacteria in the body are often killed off as collateral damage. The latest study tapped the medical records of 64,580 babies and children in and around Philadelphia. It was published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics. The heightened risk of obesity linked to antibiotic use was not huge: Babies who got wide-spectrum antibiotics in their first two years were about 11 percent more likely to be obese between 2 and 5 than were those who got no such drugs. Babies who had four or more courses of any antibiotics in the first two years were also 11 percent more likely to be obese in early childhood than those who had fewer exposures to antibiotics. But among children who had four or more antibiotics prescriptions, including at least one wide-spectrum antibiotic, the risk of obesity rose to 17 percent. And the earlier a babys exposure to wide-spectrum antibiotic medications, the more likely he or she was, on average, to be obese between age 3 and 5. The studys findings add to mounting evidence that the mix of bacteria in the gut plays a potent role in obesity. A welter of research has shown that the diversity of the guts population of bacteria appears to confer protection from obesity, while an impoverished microbiotic environment in the gut has been linked to higher risk. The new research suggests that very early childhood may be a pivotal period in creating a rich and complex mix of microbiota in the gut a condition that animal studies as well as epidemiological research have linked to reduced risk of obesity. The gut microbiome is often the unintended victim of chronic exposure to antibiotics, and especially to wide-spectrum antibiotics, which act on a wide range of bacterial families. Because the first 24 months of life comprise major shifts in diet, growth and the establishment of intestinal microbiome, this interval may comprise a window of par ticular susceptibility to antibiotic effects, the authors wrote. They went on to speculate that by knocking off-course the normal development of bacterial populations inside a childs gut, the repeated use of antibiotics may alter his or her longterm ability to control weight gain. The researchers, pediatricians from the Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvanias Perelman School of Medicine, adjusted their findings to reflect known variations in obesity risk that run along ethnic and socioeconomic lines. And they ruled out the possibility that other medications, which might be prescribed more often to children who get antibiotics, might be responsible for the heightened obesity risk. Around the time of their second birthdays, the weight of babies in the study did not vary in ways that reflected their antibiotics exposure, the researchers noted. Those patterns emerged over time, in their third, fourth and fifth years of life. The new research underscores that, for some, obesity may have Study: Early, frequent antibiotic use linked to childhood obesityBy MELISSA HEALYLOS ANGELES TIMESOBESITY | 14 Saving Smiles in Charlotte County Since 1991 50472335 Harbor Professional Centre 3420 TAMIAMI TRAIL SUITE 3 PORT CHARLOTTE, FLORIDA 941-629-2111 Please visit us at 472337 N A S I R K H A L I D I M D NASIR KHALIDI, M.D. NEUROLOGY ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAPHY ELECTROMYOGRAPHY Headache/Sleep Problems Pain Diagnosis Face/Neck/Arm/Leg Numbness or Tingling Arms and Legs Loss of Memory or Concentration Most Insurances Accepted

Page 6 The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 Facing the challenge of living well despite the effects Parkinsons disease can have on a persons physical functioning may feel like a daunting task. Parkinsons disease ghters may ask themselves, How can I manage exercise when my legs are feeling stiff? How can I foster a proper nutritious diet when I must consider my medication schedule? How can I get the necessary 7-8 hours of sleep each night when vivid dreams or frequent trips to the bathroom keep me from doing so? How can I tend to my other health priorities, such as diabetes or Chrons disease, when my Parkinsons seems to continually take center stage? Health care providers may suggest that exercise, a nutritious diet, and a good nights sleep play important roles in helping a Parkinsons ghter manage the disease. However, without a plan on how to achieve these objectives, one may get discouraged and frustrated. As a health coach, I have grown fond of the Small Changes Model, a helpful blueprint for behavioral change that may be your key to success. This model dictates that if you are looking for big changes, think SMALL. S: Self-selected Your health goals should be your own. Choose goals that t well into your life and change behaviors that you are willing to modify. Your doctor may suggest taking exercise classes in a gym, but if you are more comfortable in your pool at home, then that is where you will be more likely to exercise. M: Measurable Consider a concrete way to track your goal so that you know when your goal has been met. Thinking to yourself, I will eat more calcium to keep my bones strong is not measurable. But saying, I will eat one cup of plain yogurt each day one hour prior to my morning medication will dramatically increase your likelihood of success and calcium levels. A: Action-oriented How will you achieve your goals? Having an action plan allows you to complete the steps to make your goals a reality. Researching area yoga studios that offer gentle chair yoga and nding a class that is close enough to drive to at a convenient time of day is taking the steps needed to ensure you attend. L: Linked to your life Goals are best achieved if they work within your lifestyle and match your strengths. Be sure your goals are designed to t your everyday life. Even though aerobic activity such as spinning is benecial in Parkinsons, if being on a bike is uncomfortable for you then this is not a goal you should pursue. Maybe taking a brisk walk outside for 15 minutes each day with a neighbor is more in tune with your lifestyle. L: Long-term Because you want to be as healthy as possible for years to come, any goals you consider should be something you can see yourself doing long-term. With Parkinsons, many times we must consider modications to goals as we plan for the future. Would you like to continue playing golf despite Parkinsons? Consider special adaptive golf clubs that will help you maintain your swing. Do you enjoy yoga but are experiencing difculty getting into positions on the oor? Consider exercises like tai chi or chair yoga to continue to reap the benets of these great healthy activities. You may have Parkinsons disease, but it does not have you. Continue to prioritize your health and set goals and you will be able to live well for the many years ahead of you.

Divided into two broad approaches, invasive and noninvasive, brain stimulation works by targeting specic sites to adjust brain activity. The most widely known invasive technique, deep brain stimulation (DBS), requires brain surgery to insert an electrode and is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of Parkinsons disease and essential tremor. Noninvasive techniques, including transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), can be administered from outside the head and are currently approved for the treatment of depression. Brain stimulation can result in dramatic benet to patients with these disorders, motivat ing researchers to test whether it can also help patients with other diseases. But, in many cases, the ideal sites to administer stimulation have remained ambiguous. Exactly where in the brain is the best spot to stimulate to treat a given patient or a given disease? Now a new study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) helps answer this question. Led by investigators at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), the ndings suggest that brain networks the interconnected pathways that link brain circuits to one another can help guide site selection for brain stimulation therapies. Although different types of brain stimulation are currently applied in different locations, we found that the targets used to treat the same disease are nodes in the same connected brain network, said rst author Dr. Michael D. Fox, an investigator in the Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation and in the Parkinsons Disease and Movement Disorders Center at BIDMC. This may have implications for how we administer brain stimulation to treat disease. If you want to treat Parkinsons disease or tremor with brain stimulation, you can insert an electrode deep in the brain and get a great effect. However, getting this same benet with noninvasive stimulation is difcult, as you cant directly stimulate the same site deep in the brain from outside the head, explains Fox, an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School (HMS). But, by looking at the brains own network connectivity, we can identify sites on the surface of the brain that connect with this deep site, and stimulate those sites noninvasively. Brain networks consist of interconnected pathways linking brain circuits or loops, similar to a college campus in which paved sidewalks connect a wide variety of buildings. In this paper, Fox led a team that rst conducted a large-scale literature search to identify all neurological and psychiatric diseases where improvement had been seen with both invasive and noninvasive brain stimulation. Their analysis revealed 14 conditions: addiction, Alzheimers disease, anorexia, depression, dystonia, epilepsy, essential tremor, gait dysfunction, Huntingtons disease, minimally conscious state, obsessive compulsive disorder, pain, Parkinson disease and Tourette syndrome. They next listed the stimulation sites, either deep in the brain or on the surface of the brain, thought to be effective for the treatment of each of the 14 diseases. We wanted to test the hypothesis that these various stimulation sites are actually different spots within the same brain network, explains Fox. To examine the connectivity from any one site to other brain regions, we used a data base of functional MRI images and a technique that enables you to see correlations in spontaneous brain activity. From these correlations, the investigators were able to create a map of connections from deep brain stimulation sites to the surface of the brain. When they compared this map to sites on the brain surface that work for noninvasive brain stimulation, the two matched. These results suggest that brain networks might be used to help us better understand why brain stimulation works and to improve therapy by identifying the best place to stimulate the brain for each individual patient and given disease, said senior author Dr. Alvaro Pascual-Leone, the director of the Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation at BIDMC and Professor of Neurology at HMS. This study illustrates the potential of gaining fundamental insights into brain function while helping patients with debilitating diseases, and provides us with a powerful way of selecting targets based on their connectivity to other regions that can be widely applied to help guide brain stimulation therapy across multiple neurological and psychiatric disorders. As were trying different types of brain stimulation for different dis eases, the question comes up, How does one relate to the other? notes Fox. In other words, can we use the success in one to help design a trial or inform how we apply a new type of brain stimulation? Our new ndings suggest that resting-state functional connectivity may be useful for translating therapy between treatment modalities, optimizing treatment and identifying new stimulation targets.Study reveals new clues to understand brain stimulationProvided by BETH ISRAEL DEACONESS MEDICAL CENTER FILE PHOTO Events, restaurants, artists & more! 486812 Diabetic Foot Care Advanced Wound Care Latest Technologies Fellow American professional Wound Care Association Now Accepting New Medicare Patients Infections Heel Pain Ingrown Toenails Foot & Leg Ulcers Injuries Medicare Provider G U A R D I A N GUARDIAN A N G E L ANGEL F O O T C A R E FOOT CARE 941-473-3338 2400 S.

The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 Page 7 People who work in an assisted living facility, which I do, work eight to 10 hours a day and then we get to go home, said Melissa Vanderbilt-Bestor. A caregiver has to be there 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They dont get to the time off, they dont get a break. But thanks to Our Charlotte Elder Affairs Network (OCEAN), local caregivers will get just that. The or ganization is sponsoring a Caregiver Cruise on Oct. 22, to provide a couple of hours of respite from the stresses of caring for an ill loved one, as they are referred to. Vanderbilt-Bestor who is mar keting manager for assisted living and memory care at South Port Square in Port Charlotte, as well as facilitator for the Alzheimers Associations Memory Walk knows all too well what caregivers go through. I talk to caregivers every day, she said. Theyre overwhelmed. They dont know where they can go or who they can talk to get some of their feelings out, or have someone to just listen. Thats what they want, for someone to listen to what theyre going through on a day-to-day basis. We get many, many requests every single day for someone just to talk to, someone to listen to their stories. Theyre overwhelmed. Caregivers are 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They dont have any me time. The cruise was started about ve years ago, she said, and the initial plan was to offer a full-day excur sion but the organizers realized many caregivers would not be able to stay away from their loved ones for such a lengthy period. So the cruise was reduced to an hour and a half. Boarding begins at 10:45 a.m., with the boat leaving at 11 a.m. and returning at 12:30 p.m. Reservations are required by Oct. 15, and it is open to all caregivers at no charge. We saw a need in Charlotte County for people who were staying at home with loved ones and never had an opportunity or a way to have time for themselves, VanderbiltBestor said. We thought this would be a way of giving back to the community. We open it up to anyone whos staying at home taking care of a loved one, who just needs a getaway. The cruise is conducted by King Fisher Fleet out of Fishermens Village in Punta Gorda. Although the company does not donate its services for the event, They do go the extra mile, Vanderbilt-Bestor said, offer ing the largest-capacity boat of 100 passengers. We take them out on the boat, we feed them. There will live enter tainment, there will be drawings for goodie baskets and gift certicates and all kinds of things. The goal is that everybody walks of the cruise saying thank you for all that you do. For those who think they cannot attend because a loved one cant be left alone, respite care is provided, also free of charge. The caregivers absolutely love the break, Vanderbilt-Bestor said. They think its a great amount of time. Theyre gone an hour and a half, so its not too long or too short. When they come off of that boat, theyre happy, theyre hugging you and thanking you. Not only is it overwhelming for us who sponsor this cruise but you can see the relief in their eyes. If you look at them before when theyre still worried about their loved one at home you see the difference when they come off, and they say how they needed this break, they needed this time.

Page 8 The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 Viruses that kill bacteria otherwise known as bacteriphages are being investigated as an alternative to traditional antibiotics, The Scientist magazine reports. It may sound like swallowing a y and then sending a spider in after it, but so-called phage therapy could actually save us from our growing dependence on increasingly useless antibiotics. Antibiotics work by killing off the microbes that make us sick, but the organisms left behind after a course of treatment can breed further generations of increasingly resistant bacteria. Antibiotic resistance already causes at least 23,000 deaths a year in the United States alone, and just last week President Barack Obama called on federal agencies to help x the problem. The issue is that developing new antibiotics isnt very cost effective if people only take them when theyre really necessary, sales stay low, and if theyre over-prescribed to increase prot, then bacteria are more likely to develop resistance to them. For that same reason, phage therapy which was actually used as a treatment before antibiotics existed has been slow to come up in the world. But a shout-out from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has phage therapy back in the hot seat. Studies have examined the use of phage therapy in treating ear and lung infections (specically those that are common in cystic brosis patients). Phages also show promise for treating the bacterial lms that plague bone wounds and prosthetic infections. In some parts of Europe, phage therapy never really fell out of style and now the doctors who support it may have an edge in treating their patients. Phages, a group of researchers recently argued in a Nature Outlook article, are an attractive alternative to the antibiotics prescribed today: The viruses are highly specic, so unlike antibiotics they could treat pathogens without killing off our helpful bacteria. Its also relatively simple to combat resistance by adding new viruses to the treatment cocktail as needed. And while some may cringe at the idea of infecting themselves with a virus when theyre already sick, researchers are able to select viruses (or tweak existing ones) that wont activate an immune response. Scientists still need to work on getting phage therapy approved for treatment of human illnesses in the United States. But in the agricultural industry, where the over-use of antibiotics in livestock has led to the rise of dangerous organisms on farms and in slaughterhouses, phages are already being used. Its not as if phage therapy can kick antibiotics to the curb overnight: Scientists still arent clear on the mechanisms by which these viruses target their bacterial nemeses. And in some cases, viruses that are expert bacterial killers in the lab just dont work when they encounter the microbes inside a sick cow. But as federal agencies knuckle down for a ght with dangerous bacteria, phage therapy will no doubt nd a place in their tool kits.One day, doctors might prescribe viruses instead of antibioticsBy RACHEL FELTMANTHE WASHINGTON POST RESEARCH FILE PHOTO Joshua M. Cooper inserted a catheter through a vein in Janice McKemeys groin, up through her abdomen and all the way inside her heart. From there, the Temple University Hospital physician pushed the slender device through a wall of tissue into the left atrium, where the hard part began. Coopers delicate task: detect heart cells that had gone rogue and destroy them. The procedure, called catheter ablation, has been around for decades, and with advances in technology it has become quite safe, especially in the hands of a skilled practitioner. But with the condition Cooper was treating a common type of abnor mal rhythm called atrial brillation it is not always effective. Symptoms such as palpitations, shortness of breath, and fatigue may come back in 30 percent of cases. That is why he was using a new kind of smart catheter one that told him whether he was making good contact inside McKemeys heart, thus delivering enough heat to ablate, or disable, any renegade cells that were triggering her erratic rhythms. Its like the Goldilocks phenomenon, said Cooper, the hospitals director of cardiac electrophysiology. You want to give exactly the right amount of energy at each specic spot. Too little, and you lose effectiveness. Too much, and you could potentially damage an adjacent structure. Atrial brillation a-b can be treated with medication in most people, but when ablation is needed, Cooper is a fan of working smart. The new catheter contains sophisticated electronics and is mounted on a spring, enabling it to measure just how much force is applied at each moment and at what angle. Previously, physicians had to rely on X-rays and other images to try to tell whether the catheter was in rm contact with the inside of the heart. The Food and Drug Administration approved these catheters in February. They are made by Biosense Webster Inc. of Diamond Bar, Calif., a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. A competing force-sensing catheter made by St. Jude Medical Inc. of St. Paul, Minn., awaits approval. Modern medicine is marked by a nearly relentless pace in technological advances, drawing re from those who seek to curtail rising costs. And Coopers specialty, cardiac electrophysiology, is especially tech-driven. But he and other physicians who use the smart catheters think they are a good bet for treating a-b, likely to improve success rates while reducing time on the operating table. Biosense Webster declined to give an exact price for the devices, but Cooper said they cost about $3,000 perhaps 5 percent to 10 percent more than the non-force-sensing variety. Medicare reimburses hospitals about $12,400 for the overall procedure, a rate that will remain the same with the slightly more expensive catheters, Temple ofcials said. Evidence so far suggests the devic es will improve success rates, said Francis E. Marchlinski, director of electrophysiology for Penn Medicine, the University of Pennsylvanias health system. Marchlinski was senior author of a study of the devices published last month in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology and funded by Biosense Webster. He and his co-authors found 72.5 percent of patients who received ablation with the devices were free from symptoms 12 months later a few percentage points higher than is typically quoted for procedures with regular catheters. Whats more, physicians who consistently kept the catheters within the desired force range were four times more likely to be successful, the authors found. Among other recent advances is the use of jet ventilation, delivering rapid little bursts of air to the patient instead of longer, deeper breaths so the ribcage remains relatively stable a big help when one is trying to make contact inside a beating heart. Coopers performance of the procedure on McKemey this month illustrated the evolution of the technology. He rst operated on McKemey more than a year before with a traditional catheter, attempting to Smart catheters help doctors navigate the heartBy TOM AVRILTHE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER MCT PHOTODr. Joshua Cooper, director of cardiac electrophysiology, looks to the large display next to the operating table to ensure that his catheters are going to the correct location of the heart.

The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 Page 9 Robert Stegemann would be the last person to judge. Himself a product of the hippie culture of the 1960s and its addictions, the pastor has been clean since 1972, and now helps others overcome the many different behaviors that keep others in bondage. Celebrate Recovery (CR) is a 20-year-old national organization that takes a religious approach to helping people overcome their addictions. Stegemann is the ministry director of CR at First Alliance Church, 20444 Midway Blvd., Port Charlotte, where the program has been going strong for seven years. CR deals with more than just addicts, he said. The slogan behind it is, CR helps those with hurts, habits and hang-ups. Those are the three areas we work. On Friday nights, 150 people or more meet at the church for dinner at 6 p.m. There is an open meeting at 7 p.m., that includes worship and either a teaching about recovery or an individual sharing a testimony about what God has done in their lives. Then at 8 p.m., attendees use the programs nal hour to break into share groups that address specic needs alcohol, drugs, smoking, overeating (which is not about weight loss), codependency or a catchall A-Z group. Theres even a sexual integrity group for men. It is a program of anonymity, much like Alcoholics Anonymous, Stegemann said. We safeguard these groups, and dont disclose the names of people who attend. The majority of members are yearround residents; there is very little swell during season. A team of about three dozen volunteers help to keep the program running by leading small groups, helping to cook dinners, greeting guests or stafng the infor mation tables. Probably 50 or more percent who come to CR on Friday night do not deal with a drug or alcohol addiction, Stegemann said. We see codependency issues, wounds that have been inicted on them as children, all different kinds of hurts. We deal with abuse but we dont offer counseling. Its not a counseling ministry. Its not a self-help group its a God-help group. God helps us. Thats important we dont help ourselves. We put Jesus rst. Its always about Jesus. Its Christ-centered. You get a Christ-centered message every Friday night. But were open to everybody if they want to get well. Stegemann assures that all newcomers are treated warmly. To introduce the program and make newcomers feel more comfortable, there is even a special class. All of the groups are gender-specific; we dont have any mixed groups, he said. There are mens groups and ladies groups. We think it works the best way. Achievements are celebrated once a month at an anniversary night. If a member has abstained from an unhealthy behavior or habit for a month or more, he or she is given a token to celebrate the victory. We try to honor the people who have achieved something in their lives, Stegemann said. We have a little celebration that night. Were sensitive to the snacks we serve theyre low-fat so that we dont put out stuff thats tempting to people and causes them to struggle. Its like that for the weekly meals, as well. Because there are those struggling with food issues, the CR staff is sensitive that no fatty desserts are served. Those interested in attending need no reservations just show up. Were a church thats open to anyone who has issues, Stegemann said. Were open to everyone, regardless of their past. Were here to lend a hand, to help. Anybody can walk through those doors. You can be covered from head to toe in tattoos. I was an old hippie and got saved in 1972. My past is my past. I was involved with a lot of stuff in the 1960s. I had long hair, I was a pot-smoking, drug-taking, drinking hippie. In 1972, my wife and I got saved, and Ive never gone back to anything else. We believe God can keep us abstinent from whatever our addiction is. Anyone who comes, were here to help them and love them.Celebrate Recovery takes God-centered approach to overcoming addictionsBy BOB MASSEYFEELING FIT CORRESPONDENT ADDICTION Robert Stegemann Patients taking opioid painkillers for chronic pain not associated with cancer conditions such as headaches, bromyalgia and lowback pain are more likely to risk overdose, addiction and a range of debilitating side effects than they are to improve their ability to function, a leading physicians group said. The long-term use of opioids may not, in the net, be benecial even in patients with more severe pain conditions, including sickle-cell disease, destructive rheumatoid arthritis and severe neuropathic pain, the American Academy of Neurologists opined in a new position statement. But even for patients who do appear to benet from opioid nar cotics, the neurology group warned, physicians who prescribe these drugs should be diligent in tracking a patients dose increases, screening for a history of depression or substance abuse, looking for signs of misuse and insisting as a condition of contin ued use that opioids are improving a patients function. In disseminating a new position paper on opioid painkillers for chronic noncancer pain, the American Academy of Neurology is hardly the rst physicians group to sound the alarm on these medications and call for greater restraint in prescribing them. But it appears to be the rst to lay out a comprehensive set of research-based guidelines that outline which patients are most (and least) likely to benet from the ongoing use of opioids and what practices a physician should follow in prescribing the medications for pain conditions. The statement would govern the prescribing of morphine, codeine, oxycodone, methadone, fentanyl, hy drocodone or a combination of those drugs with acetaminophen. It was published in the journal Neurology. The American Academy of Neurologys position statement also urges physicians to work with ofcials to reverse state laws and policies enacted in the late 1990s that made the prescribing of opioid pain medication vastly more commonplace. The position paper notes that despite a national epidemic of painkiller addiction that has claimed more than 100,000 lives in just over a decade, many of the laws and practices adopted in the late 1990s remain unchanged. It adds that prescription drug-monitoring programs online databases that would allow physicians to quickly check on all controlled substances dispensed to a patient are currently underfunded, underutilized and not interoper able across state lines or health care systems. The result is that patients tendency to develop a tolerance for opioid drugs and to require ever-higher doses to achieve pain relief often go unnoticed. The result is not only addiction and misuse, but an escalating risk of accidental overdose, since opioid narcotics depress breathing and, especially when mixed with alcohol or other sedative drugs, can prove deadly. In the age group at highest risk for overdose those between 35 and 54 opioid use has vaulted ahead of rearms and motor vehicle crashes as a cause of death. The American Academy of Neurology statement cites studies showing that roughly half of patients taking opioids for at least three months are still on opioids ve years later. Research shows that in many cases, those patients doses have increased and their level of function has not improved. In addition to screening patients for depression or past or present drug abuse, physicians prescribing a longterm course of opioids to patients with pain should draw up an opioid treatment agreement that sets out the responsibilities of patients and physicians. Physicians should track dose increases and assess changes in a patients level of function, and if a specic daily dose is reached (a morphine equivalent dose of 80-120 mg) and a patients pain is not under control, doctors should seek the help of a pain specialist. The statement also recommends against prescribing any benzodiazepines or other sedating drugs to patients who take opioid painkillers. And it recommends the prudent use by physicians of random urine testing for patients taking opioids to detect misuse of the drugs or abuse of other, nonprescribed drugs. When a phy sician takes on the care of a patient who has taken opioid painkillers for more than three months and has aberrant behavior or a history of overdose, he or she should consider a trial aimed at weaning the patient off such medication, the statement says.For most chronic pain, neurologists declare opioids a bad choiceBy MELISSA HEALYLOS ANGELES TIMES 629-4804 471531 2 7 6 2 B T a m i a m i T r P o r t C h a r l o t t e 2762 B.

Page 10 The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 Barbara Walter has experienced the full medical odyssey of chronic hepatitis C infection, having faced its every major challenge while beneting from all of the modern breakthrough treatments. She is one of the lucky few. She is cured, with no detectable virus in her blood since July. But it is a medical roller-coaster ride for the 4 million Americans and 180 million people worldwide with hepatitis C. The latest issue involves two new antiviral medications that can cure a patient in 12 weeks and one expected soon to be available once the U.S. Food and Drug Administration naliz es approval. But those breakthroughs are tempered by the drugs price of $1,000 a pill, limiting their use to only those with the severest complications or biggest bank accounts. A 12-week treatment regimen with one of two drugs costs $60,000 and $80,000 respectively, with a full regimen of both drugs costing $144,000, which is a prohibitive cost for public and private health plans for most people with the disease. The major step forward in treating the infection must be weighed against the drugs costs that pose a potential threat to the viability of the U.S. health-care system, states proposed guidelines for use of the drugs outlined last week in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The controversy involves the drugs sofosbuvir (sold as Sovaldi) and simeprevir (sold as Olysio), often prescribed along with other drugs. A single-drug regimen awaiting FDA approval could cure the disease in as little as eight weeks. Gilead Sciences Inc., the manufacturer of sofosbuvir, raised the bar of controversy recently with its announcement that it would license generic versions of sofosbuvir to be manufactured by various drug companies to be sold for a fraction of the American price in India and 90 other nations whose citizens cannot afford full-market price. A full round of treatment in India could cost less than $1,800, about a penny on the dollar when compared with the American price. One in 100 Americans has hepatitis C, with 80 percent of the cases infecting baby boomers. Many contracted the disease decades ago when blood transfusions were not screened for the virus. The infection also can be transmitted through intravenous drug use and sexual transmission. The National Medical Association says of every 100 people with the infection, 75 percent to 85 percent develop chronic hepatitis, with 60 percent to 70 percent of those developing chronic liver disease. As many as 20 will develop cirrhosis of the liver (liver scarring), and as many as ve will die from cirrhosis or liver failure.. Walter, 67, of Fairview, Pa., received a blood transfusion in 1976 during a medical procedure. This eventually led to her diagnosis of hepatitis C in 2000 after a routine blood test. Most people with the virus often dont know they have it until they begin experiencing the symptoms of cirrhosis or liver cancer. Actually, I felt good, she said. A lot of patients get discoloration, but I wasnt yellow. I did not lose weight. I really looked healthy. Soon after diagnosis, she was placed on the traditional course of peginterferon and ribavirin, which requires about a year of treatment to produce a cure about 50 percent of the time but with adverse side effects. The drugs did not work for Walter, and the side effects required medication. But back pain in December 2011 led to discovery of a cancerous liver tumor, which University of Pittsburgh Medical Center physicians removed. That led to her being listed for a liver transplant due to advancing cirrhosis. She underwent a successful transplant in April 2013 at UPMC Monteore. Then, last April, the liver began showing signs of rejection once hepatitis had infected the new liver. So she received insurance approval for the expensive dual-drug combination of sofosbuvir and simeprevir, which she took May through July, with a $10,000 copay and a total medication cost of $144,000, she said. And it worked. Since her blood test in July, she has had no signs of infection. If you already went through a transplant, you dont want anything to happen to the new liver, Walter said. Life depends on it. So my husband said, Whatever the cost, its worth it. The liver is the bodys largest organ, with more than 500 functions, said Vinod K. Rustgi, the UPMC medical director of liver transplantation. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control now recommends people born between 1945 and 1965 be screened with a blood test for the hepatitis C infection. Symptoms dont typically appear until liver function declines to less than 30 percent, with typical symptoms of jaundice, a swollen abdomen, confusion and bleeding, Rustgi said. People who reach this stage of infection face a 50 percent death rate within ve years, which points to the need for drug treatments and liver transplants. In 2007, the death rate from hepatitis C began exceeding that of human immunodeciency virus infections in the United States. HIV has received a lot of publicity, and it is incumbent upon us to make people aware that hepatitis C is more common than HIV and it is curable. Screening allows for earlier recognition of symptoms and allows for lifestyle changes, including dietary changes and abstinence from alcohol, Rustgi said. When you look at an area like Pittsburgh, where there are 2.4 million people (in the metropolitan area), we The medical roller coaster of hepatis C treatmentBy DAVID TEMPLETONPITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE HEPATITIS C STUDY SAYS HEPATITIS C WILL BE A RARE DISEASE BY ABOUT 2036 Hepatitis C, a major infectious disease in the United States with 180 million cases worldwide, will likely become a rare disease by about 2036, according to a University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health analysis. But that time period could be shortened by a decade to about 2026, according to computer modeling of factors and trends involved in infection rates. We picked an ideal scenario one that really is ideal that assumes that all unaware patients get screening once and everyone who is infected is treated, said Mina Kabiri, a doctoral student in health services research and policy and the studys lead author. We wanted to show what would be the difference if you had the most optimal situation and illustrate how it changes the time before it would become a rare disease. It would be a 10-year difference. The analysis and computer-modeling meth odology used to reach the conclusions was published recently in the Annals of Internal Medicine. The predictive model, developed with assistance from the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center at the University of Texas, was funded through the National Institutes of Health. Hepatitis C causes about 15,000 deaths annu ally in the United States. Prevalence of a rare disease is fewer than one of every 1,500 people. Currently, hepatitis C infects about one in 100, although the rate has been declining steadily in recent years due to treatment advances. We compared the base case the current trend with the very ideal to show the range, Kabiri said. There are new drugs and changes in physicians reactions to new drugs. It is pretty hard to pick a year between 2026 and 2036 because everything is changing so fast. The model was run with data and trends from recent eras, and the outcomes compared favorably with what actually did occur, she said. Such analysis can help health policymakers set strategies, including the most productive outcomes with limited resources or the net impact of research investment. Making hepatitis C a rare disease would be a tremendous life-saving accomplishment, Kabiri said in a news release. However, to do this we will need improved access to care and increased treatment capacity, primarily in the form of primary care physicians who can manage the care of infected people identified through increased screening.

The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 Page 11 Trauma surgeon Albert Chi gave a talk last year to families about advanced prosthetics that would someday benet their children who were missing hands. But when a parent asked what was easy, available and affordable now, Chi was stumped. After focusing on the latest articial limb technology, he began to hunt for more basic options. Like many researchers, entrepreneurs and even artists in recent years, he turned to the 3-D printer. With one his wife bought him for Fathers Day, sheets of colored plastic, and free designs and advice found online, he made a hand for about $20. One of the rst kids we tted was a 2-year-old, Chi said. We thought the child was too young, but we werent even able to nish strapping it on, and the kid was picking an object up. The need for such prosthetics has spawned a network of volunteer designers, medical workers, artists, engineers, parents and 3-D print enthusiasts who have been outtting children with prosthetics some with lower-end machines that cost less than $1,000. That network is hoping to give hands free of charge to any interested child. It includes the nonprot e-NABLE, the largest and perhaps only organization matching kids with printers. The organization has provided more than 400 kids with printed prosthetics over the past year. In addition, with designs that are free on the e-NABLEs website, families may be printing their own. The 3-D printed prosthetics are particularly useful for children. They often grow out of prosthetics and cant afford replacements every few months or years. The 3-D versions also can be lighter and easier to wield and come in their favorite colors. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that four in 10,000 children are born with some congenital hand loss, or about 1,500 a year. That doesnt include those who lose their hands in accidents. Insurance also doesnt always cover pediatric prosthetics, which cost up to $40,000, said Chi. And children can have trouble adjusting to them. Grifn Matuszek, who was born without part of his left hand, found his traditional prosthetic mostly useless and a bit scary, said his mother, Quinn Cassidy. So she began researching alternatives. When someone sent the family a link to Chis work on 3-D hands, Cassidys father called the doctor. Grifns family came from North Bethesda, Md., to Baltimore to get his rst printed hand. The 5-year-old requested one that glowed in the dark. Cassidy said Grifn was drawn to his new hand because he could put it on himself and easily manipulate it with his palm muscles. The traditional prosthetic was tight and covered his forearm. He put it on and immediately gave Dr. Chi a high ve and then gave everyone in the room a high ve, Cassidy said. He was able to pick up a small ball and throw it with his left hand right away. Cassidy said the hand made Grifn happy and more condent, and didnt break her bank. The old prosthetic was covered by insurance, but her co-pay was $1,000. She was so grateful to Chi that she pledged to cover the cost of a 3-D printed hand for another child every time Grifn got a new one. Another recipient was Mike Waldron, 22, a senior political science major, at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. It gives me many options. I can go kayaking and work on my cars now, said Waldron, who said an electronic prosthetic device could cost as much as $40,000, while the one he received at Hopkins, was in the $45 range. Its all plastic and the only metal is the screws. The string is 40-pound test shing line. John Fielding, a 7-year-old from Arlington, Va., was looking forward to being able to play the guitar one day and ride a bike. Now, I can ght my sister, he said, laughing. The printers work like glue guns, as plastic sheets are fed into the machines and melted. The plastic comes out in layers that eventually look like Lego pieces, tted together with plastic bolts that also are printed. Hand parts take up to 10 hours to print and another couple of hours to assemble with elastic cords to keep the hands open. Kids make them grasp by exing their palms or wrists. Extra cords can be used to strap them on kids with more extensive limb loss. Chi, a trauma surgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital, called the effort a labor of love. A senior prosthetist at Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta, Brian Giavedoni, said he uses traditional prosthetics but sees a place for 3-D printed hands. Younger children dont always see a need for a prosthetic and nd them cumbersome, as they have found ways to function without a limb or hand, he said. Some dont see the need for both hands for school work and activities until they are teens. And parents often want the most advanced prosthetic, which can be overwhelming. If I told you that when you get home tonight youll need a hammer but you have to carry the hammer all day, youd reject that, and thats how kids can see it, Giavedoni said. But I guarantee you at some point theyll want a prosthetic.Kids get new hands made with 3-D printersBy MEREDITH COHNTHE BALTIMORE SUN SURGERY MCT PHOTOGrin Matuszek, 5 1/2, tries out his new 3-D hand as Quinn Cassidy, his mother, left, and others watch at a symposium, Prosthetists Meet Printer: Mainstreaming Open Source 3-D Printed Prosthetics for Underserved Populations, sponsored by Johns Hopkins Medicine. 50473144 We have your convenience in mind with 12 locations to better serve you. 18308 Murdock Circle Unit 102 Port Charlotte 9 4 1 6 2 4 2 1 4 1 941-624-2141 www.anklefootfl.comO f f e r i n g .

The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 Page 13 Its not easy to lose weight. And its even harder to keep it off. Only 20 percent of people who lose weight manage to keep it off for a year or more. Thats according to Pete Thomas, a recent contestant in one of the Cultural Center of Charlotte Countys Biggest Loser weight loss competitions. He said secret to losing weight and keeping it off is to develop forever habits, things that you will automatically do for the rest of your life. These include: Journal your journey. When Thomas began his journey to losing weight he jotted down what he thought were his biggest obstacles to weight loss. He felt he needed to understand why he had gained weight in the rst place. He now uses his journal every day to help him anticipate challenges and how hell master them without heading to the refrigerator in times of stress. Gather great teammates. A team effort makes it easier to do anything in life, including losing weight. In addition to your weight loss teammate let your family know what youre doing and ask them for their support and understanding. Encourage them to make you accountable to gently remind you when youre slipping (taking extra portions or skipping exercise routines, for example). Move. Its difcult to lose weight just by counting calories youll also need exercise. The same goes for keeping the weight off. Apart from its weight loss benets exercise improves your mood, psychological well being as well as your appearance. Obviously people who do any form of exercise will burn more calories than those who are sedentary. The bottom line is, burn more calories than you consume daily.

Page 14 The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 Intermittent fasting is an integral part of our history. Our early ancestors managed without three meals a day, and fasting has long been observed in many cultures and religions, including Judaism, Hindu ism, Buddhism, Islam and Catholicism. Recently, fasting became a new diet trend, but the question remains: Are there true health rewards for periodic breaks in eating? Intermittent fasting can take many forms, including signicant restriction in ones daily caloric intake, skipping a few meals during the week, or completely avoiding food for up to 24 hours during a specied period of time. Research suggests that intermediate fasting may offer health benets, such as better cognitive health, improved glucose metabolism, and perhaps even prolonged life, according to a scientic review published in 2006. In addition, weight loss may be a main benet. A 2010 study published in International Journal of Obesity found that among overweight women, intermittent fasting (75 percent reduction in calorie needs two consecutive days each week, followed by 100 percent of estimated calorie needs for ve days) produced an average weight loss of 14 pounds over six months two more pounds less than in women who ate an average of 1,500 calories each day. Other studies point out that intermittent fasting may not be so promising, however. The same 2006 scientic review points out that excessive caloric restriction may lead to extreme loss of body fat and decline in sex steroids, which may cause menstrual irregularities and the development of osteoporosis in females. A 2010 study published in the Journal of Cardiac Failure found that rats subjected to intermittent fasting developed stiffened heart tissue, impairing the organs ability to pump blood effectively. And some research suggests that eating regularly throughout the day may be a better weight loss strategy, as it helps to reduce overall caloric intake and boost metabolism. Indeed, a randomized trial reported at the scientic meeting Obesity Week in Atlanta in 2013 found that patients who fasted every other day lost about the same amount of weight over two months as those who did not fast and ate a standard diet. Health experts also are concerned that fasting may potentially mask eating disorders and trigger unhealthy habits, such as preoccupation with food and poor body image. The practice is not advised for individuals with diabetes, as it can lead to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). While intermittent fasting may be part of ones cultural traditions, it may not the best or safest diet for everyone. More research is needed before we fully understand the bodys response to fasting and whether it provides real benets. For many people, its best to eat balanced meals and snacks throughout the day, providing a consistent supply of important nutrients that prevents blood sugar lows and their associated symptoms, such as mood swings, headaches, clouded thoughts, hunger, and fatigue.Know the pros and cons before you try fastingBy McKENZIE HALLENVIRONMENTAL NUTRITION NEWSLETTER FITNESS & NUTRITION FILE PHOTO Labels are cropping up everywhere even on fresh produce like pineapples! What do these stickers mean? Heres a handy cheat sheet: 1. USDA Organic: USDA Organic is one label thats strictly regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It means that the food (and its ingredients) were grown without using synthetic fertilizers, prohibited pesticides, antibiotics, growth hor mones, irradiation or bio-engineering (i.e., GMO). 2. Fair Trade Certied: Fair Trade USA provides its logo to foods and products (ranging from coffees to roses) that have been produced within ethical business, social and environmental guidelines. These include a ban on the use of toxic chemicals and GMOs, no child labor, fair and healthy working conditions and pay for labor ers, and a focus on sustainability. 3. Non-GMO Project Veried: This is a voluntary label but it is veried by an independent group that only allows the label to be used if less than 0.9 percent of the food or food product was made with genetically modied ingredients. While there have been no direct links between consumption of genetically modied organisms and human health, many countries worldwide have restricted or banned GMOs.Produce LabelsEver wonder what the 4to 5-digit codes on your produce really mean? Dan Vache, of the United Fresh Produce Association, explains: A 4-digit code means conventionally grown. A 5-digit code starting with means organic. A 5-digit code starting with may mean the produce is genetically modied (though outside of papaya and sweet corn, GMO produce is rare).Even fresh produce now has labels to decipherBy the EDITORSEATINGWELL.COM FILE PHOTO origins in decisions made long before food preferences, eating habits and lifestyle decisions are developed or established. This really gives strong evidence that, often, obesity really is not a personal choice, said Dr. Stephen Cook, associate professor of Pediatrics and Community Health at the University of Rochester Medical Center. Cook, who serves on the executive committee of the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Obesity, said the study makes clear that fighting child obesity is a much more complicated issue than move more and eat less. For busy pediatricians, the new research is yet another reason to use antibiotics wisely, said Dr. Sandra Arnold, associate professor of pediatrics and chief of the division of infectious diseases at University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center. But, added Arnold, who has authored research on physicians antibiotic prescribing practices, thats easier said than done. Its really hard to get physicians to stop prescribing antibiotics in circumstances where theyre unlikely to help, said Arnold.OBESITYFROM PAGE 4 50471545 Our Talented Team of Orthopedic Surgeons is Growing!

The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 Page 15 Battle the damaging effects of oxidative stress through a plantrich diet of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, spices, coffee and tea. Oxidative stress occurs when levels of highly reactive molecules called free radicals exceed your bodys ability to manage them. Free radicals come from external sources, such as tobacco smoke and pollution, as well as internal sources, such as metabolism. In excess, they can damage cells, promote inammation, and interfere with blood sugar control, blood vessel function and normal cell growth. However, plant foods can bolster your bodys defense to help counter oxidative stress and its damaging effects. The bodys antioxidant defense system is a complex network of enzymes, proteins and other compounds. Healthful nutrients in foods add support, including beta-carotene (orange, dark green produce) and vitamins C (citrus, broccoli, berries) and E (almonds, sunower seeds) antioxidants that scavenge free radicals and promote oxidative balance. Some minerals, like zinc, copper and selenium, dont act as antioxidants themselves, but are essential parts of body antioxidant enzymes, noted Dr. Britt Burton-Freeman, director of the Center for Nutrition Research at Illinois Institute of Technology. She added that certain natural plant compounds from food, such as polyphenols found in many plant foods, such as berries, tea and dark chocolate may support antioxidant defenses. For example, phytochemicals may trigger expression of genes responsible for antioxidant enzymes and support processes within cells for controlling blood sugar and blood vessel health. A number of foods may help your body ght oxidative stress, including: 1. Fruits. Top vitamin C sources include citrus fruits, berries, kiwifruit, cantaloupe, and tropical treats like star fruit, guava, mango, and papaya. The orange color of apricots, cantaloupe, mango and papaya signals beta-carotene. You get lycopene and other carotenoids from papaya, pink guava, watermelon, and red or pink grapefruit. Polyphenol compounds abound, especially in berries, citrus, apples, grapes and cherries. 2. Vegetables. Some vegetables provide triple antioxidant support: the cruciferous vegetables broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliower, kale, chard and mustard greens are rich in vitamin C, beta-carotene, and isothiocyanates, compounds which further support antioxidant defense through gene and cell regulation. 3. Peppers. Both sweet and hot, are also vitamin C-rich. High beta-car otene content is signaled by dark green (romaine lettuce, spinach) or deep orange (carrots, pumpkin, winter squash, sweet potatoes). Most vegetables dont take up much selenium from soil, but asparagus and broccoli do. Technically not a vegetable, mushrooms supply selenium, zinc and copper. 4. Onions and tomatoes. Onions provide avonoids and allyl-sulfur compounds, both of which may support body antioxidant defenses. Tomatoes provide lycopene, a power ful antioxidant in laboratory studies. Although lycopenes direct antioxidant function in the body is unclear, it helps vitamins C and E to function as antioxidants, and increases body antioxidant enzymes. 5. Whole grains. Whole grains contribute small amounts of vitamin E, plus polyphenols and minerals needed for antioxidant enzymes. Brown rice supplies 50 percent more zinc than white rice. Whole wheat bread and pasta are high in selenium and copper. Oatmeal, quinoa, teff and wild rice are good sources of zinc; oatmeal and barley supply selenium. 6. Legumes. Dried beans, peas and lentils help the body ght oxidative stress principally through compounds like avonoid polyphenols. In addition, some, like tofu and soynuts, are good sources of copper and selenium. 7. Nuts and seeds. Cashews, walnuts, Brazil nuts, pine nuts, pistachios, and pumpkin and sunower seeds supply copper needed for the bodys antioxidant enzymes. In addition, cashews, pine nuts and chia seeds are high in zinc; and sunower seeds and Brazils are loaded with selenium. Almonds are high in alpha-tocopherol, the form of vitamin E recommended by the Institute of Medicine in the Dietary Reference Intakes (DRI). Other vitamin E forms also may be important, including gamma-tocopherol, which is especially high in pecans, pistachios, walnuts and peanuts (which are actually legumes, not nuts). Nuts are important sources of polyphenols, too. 8. Herbs and spices. These avorful ingredients contain avonoid and terpenoid compounds that may bolster body defenses against oxidative stress. Choices with highest content include turmeric (found in curry powder), oregano, cinnamon, rosemary and ginger. Although concentrated, since you use small amounts of herbs and spices their contribution of protective compounds is smaller than that of the foods highlighted above, but every bit helps. 9. Tea, coffee, cocoa and chocolate. These plant foods and beverages rate high in laboratory tests of antioxidant capacity because of their polyphenols, which form compounds that may act within cells to bolster antioxidant defenses.Plant foods fight damaging effects of oxidative stressBy KAREN COLLINSENVIRONMENTAL NUTRITION NEWSLETTER FITNESS & NUTRITION FILE PHOTO 471542 FLORIDA COLON & RECTAL SURGICAL ASSOCIATES Domingo E.

Page 16 The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 Endorphins came rst, those home-grown opioids or pain-killers called runners high. Then came the endocabbinoids, the pleasure-inducing molecules released during hard exercise that turn exercise nuts into gym rats. Now, decades after scientists rst speculated on the effects of physical activity on the brain, Swedish researchers have discovered a new reason for lacing up those sneakers: Exercise not only feels good, it protects the brain from depression. In mouse studies at the Karolinska Institutet, neuroscientists showed that changes in skeletal muscles, incurred through exercise helped rid the body of a stress-induced amino acid called kynurenine that has been associated with mental illness. Our initial research hypothesis was that trained muscle would produce a substance with benecial effects on the brain, Jorge Ruas, principal investigator at Karolinska Institutets Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, told the media recently. We actually found the opposite: well-trained muscle produc es an enzyme that purges the body of harmful substances. So in this context the muscles function is reminiscent of that of the kidney or liver. Well-trained muscles mean increased levels of a protein known as PGC-1(alpha)1. The Swedish scientists developed a genetically modied mouse strain with high levels of PGC-1(alpha)1 in their muscles and exposed them (as well as normal mice) to a highly stressful environment of noises and ashing lights. After ve weeks, the normal mice showed evidence of depressed behavior, including lethargy and disinterest in food, but the genetically modied mice did not. The reason, the scientists believe, was that the modied mice also had higher-than-normal levels of an enzyme called KAT, which, under stress, converts kynurenine into kynurenic acid, which cannot cross the bloodbrain barrier. In effect, KAT in these muscled-up mice detoxed their brain of stress-related neurochemicals. Its possible that this work opens up a new pharmacological principle in the treatment of depression, where attempts could be made to inuence skeletal muscle function instead of targeting the brain directly, Ruas said. Skeletal muscle (when activated) can protect the brain from insults and related mental illness. The Swedish study was published in the online version of the journal Cell on Sept. 25.Six pack abs: the next weapon against depressionBy AMY ELLIS NUTTTHE WASHINGTON POST FITNESS & NUTRITION FILE PHOTO rfn rtb n bnr rf tt f rfnt b f rb ft tb f r r ff rf n t brr rf t r t fff r f f f b b ff r f t f r r n f bb tf f tb f rf ff nn rfn tbn f rfnf tbrn f fff t r f t t f r f rf nfft bbfbb t bfn nr rfntnb f t t 5042952

Page 18 The Sun /Saturday, October 4, 2014 wall off the region that was triggering her erratic rhythms, and had partial success. But a year later, some of the rogue electrical signals were still getting through, so McKemey, a retired eighth-grade history teacher from Wyndmoor, returned for a re-do with the smart catheter. Coopers Goldilocks target was to keep the amount of force between 10 and 40 grams (although technically, grams are a unit of mass). As he deftly maneuvered the device inside the patients atrium, numbers uctuated in the 20s and low 30s on a computer screen, well within the desired range. After about three hours, the ablation was over and McKemey, 65, was home the next day. She felt weak and nauseated at rst, but is improving and optimistic. I think things are on the upswing now, she said. Months of observation will be needed to make sure. But for now, Cooper is condent the second ablation was a smart move.SMARTFROM PAGE 8 may have 50,000 people with hepatitis C, with only 10,000 identied as having it, he said. That is why screening is so important. It is important that the average person not be afraid or ashamed to be screened because there is better recognition of the problem, and we can address it before we get to a point where the situation is irretrievable, Rustgi said. Walid F. Gellad, co-director of the Center for Pharmaceutical Policy and Prescribing at the University of Pittsburgh, said the hepatitis debate may be a harbinger of whats to come with expensive drugs to treat various illnesses. A lot of drugs are really expensive, but they are not used for conditions as common as hepatitis C, he said. These decisions about what drugs to cover and what to screen for are extremely difcult decisions. For now, many of those decisions are made by Medicare and private health insurance providers. Treating people early to prevent huge costs in 20 years might seem like a no-brainer in terms of cost and conscience. But not everyone who has hepatitis C will end up with a transplant or cirrhosis, and we dont know how to exactly predict who those people will be, Gellad said. I dont want to minimize it. This is an important cause of death and liver transplants, and a very important disease, but not everyone who gets the infection ends up with these advanced conditions. One issue being debated is the cost to research, develop, test and manufacture the drugs. That question arose in recent weeks when the pharmaceutical company Gilead announced agreements to sell generic sofosbuvir overseas at the dramatically reduced price. Gilead is seeking FDA approval for yet another revolutionary hepatitis C medication a xed-dose pill that combines sofosbuvir with the experi mental drug ledipasvir that has been shown to cure hepatitis C in just eight weeks in most cases. Everyone will be waiting with bated breath to see how it will be priced, Dr. Gellad said. The pharmaceutical company said a regimen of Solvadi (sofosbuvir) is the most cost-effective treatment option for patients infected with the primary type of hepatitis C because of fewer treatment failures and adverse events, along with averted liver-disease costs. Earlier use of Solvadi, it says, yields better health and economic outcomes compared with later initiation, by reducing such complications as cancer and the downstream costs associated with advancing (liver) disease. In the JAMA report, the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases and the Infectious Diseases Society of America said such drug prices drive up health insurance premiums and put a strain on state Medicaid budgets. Unless the prices of the new drugs decrease, public and private insurers face an untenable spike in short-term costs and will be forced to develop stringent patient eligibility criteria as the only way to manage the tension between access and affordability, said Daniel A. Ollendorf of the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review in Boston, who studied the cost-effectiveness of using the new drugs.HEPATITISFROM PAGE 10 Federal health ofcials are investigating illnesses with paralysis-like symptoms among children in Missouri, Colorado and Virginia that may be related to the outbreak of severe respiratory infections that has swept the nation. Three cases of the neurologic illnesses have been reported by Childrens Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, 10 by Childrens Hospital Colorado in the Denver area and one by the Virginia Department of Health in the northern part of the state. Common to the cases has been weakness in the childrens limbs that ranges in severity. Some children have mild weakness in their arms and legs; others are in intensive care, needing help breathing and eating. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is asking all state and local health departments to report similar cases as it investigates possible causes, including a potential link to the summer respiratory disease outbreak. The neurologic illnesses started appearing in August, about the same time as the rst cases of respiratory illnesses caused by enterovirus D68. The enterovirus outbreak was rst identied in Chicago and Kansas City in August. Since then, 472 people in 41 states have been conrmed to have EV-D68 illnesses, according to the CDC. Because relatively few laboratory tests are run, the number who have been ill from the virus is likely many times higher. Most of the Missouri and Colorado children whove had neurologic illnesses also had colds or fevers with respiratory symptoms in the two weeks before their arms and legs weakened. But just four of the 10 Colorado children with neurologic illnesses tested positive for EV-D68, with lab results still pending on two others. And none of the Missouri children has had EV-D68 infections. That opens the possibility that something else, including other enteroviruses, may be causing the paralysis-like illnesses. Were suspicious (about EV-D68), but we simply dont know, said Mary Anne Jackson, chief of infectious diseases at Childrens Mercy. There are other potential culprits out there. Jackson said the three cases at Childrens Mercy have been among children preschool to school age, all from Missouri. One of the children has been able to return home, another is receiving rehabilitation at the hospital and the third is in intensive care. Much remains to be discovered about the neurologic illnesses, Jackson said. Rehabilitation can be arduous, so it may take weeks to months before doctors know how well the children recover. The risks of developing the paralysis-like illnesses are still unknown because it isnt yet clear how often children are exposed to their cause without having such severe symptoms. With respiratory infections so common and the neurologic illnesses still so rare, Jackson said parents should not be too concerned when their children start to cough or sneeze. They should be reassured that if their children have a cold, it is probably a cold, she said. They shouldnt be on pins and needles waiting for limb weakness.CDC looks for link between enterovirus and paralysis-like symptoms in kidsBy ALAN BAVLEYTHE KANSAS CITY STAR CHILDRENS HEALTH FILE PHOTO 50471554 21178 OLEAN BLVD.
