Frank Wilcoxson thought he and his wife had picked the perfect new mattress, spending over $4,000 for a Tempur-Pedic model at Rooms To Go in Port Charlotte. But with subsequent painful backaches, it quickly became apparent that the 74-year-old Punta Gorda resident might have made the wrong choice. However, when he asked if he could make an exchange, Frank said the store manager informed him there would be a 20 percent restocking fee costing over $800. Frank was shocked, and checked Rooms To Go stores in Sarasota and Fort Myers, which informed him they had no restocking fees. He even contacted other area stores, nding varying policies, but none with a 20 percent restocking fee. With all this information, Frank said the Port Charlotte manager agreed to an exchange for $99. While hes happy now with his new mattress, Frank wants to know what the exchange policy is at Rooms To Go. Rooms To Gos president, Steve Buckley, told me while theres no rm policy, it normally takes 30 days to get used to a new mattress. Regardless, mattresses are exchangeable with no restocking fees, only modest redelivery fees ranging from $50 to $99. Buckley also said hed be contacting the Port Charlotte store manager. Additionally, Buckley said, I have instructed our customer service department to contact Frank and apologize, and to send him a $500 gift certicate as a token for his aggravation. According to Consumer Reports, mattress name brands sold through major retail chains are for lines exclusive to those chains. That means each retailer can give its mattresses different names, making comparison-shopping difcult. So, CR recommends mattress shoppers visit various stores and test drive mattresses for at least 10 minutes, remembering that price doesnt guarantee happiness. If two people are sharing the bed, both should go. Dont buy sight unseen. But the real test comes at home. With mattresses often running in the thousands of dollars, its vital to know what if any comfort guarantee comes with your purchase. Remember, a manufacturers warranty only covers defects in materials and workmanship, not comfort. Unfortunately, in the mattress return game, everyone plays by different rules. First, you need to know what rule book is being used. Many department stores like Macys and Havertys follow exchange policies set by the manufacturer, which can range from three to 120 days. Then, some stores charge a return fee. Macys for example, charges 15 percent for what it calls a preference fee. Other retailers, like Mikes Mattress and West Coast Mattress in Port Charlotte, City Mattress in Fort Myers and Mattress Firm, use their own store rule books, where exchange policies range from 30 to 100 days. While there are no return fees, redelivery fees can range from $50 to $200. Especially with the many Columbus Day mattress sales going on now, get all exchange details in writing before you leave the store. And regardless of which rule book is being used, if a mattress is damaged or stained, it most likely wont be returnable, so examine it upon delivery, and immediately report anything wrong. Finally, leave that little mattress tag alone. Its your best proof of purchase for warranty protection.

Mattress return game played by different rules MURDOCK Charlotte County has reached an out-of-court settlement in the Rotonda III sewer case, which ofcials hope will be the nal chapter in a series of lawsuits. Plaintiffs agreed to a $60,000 payment from the county, which the complaint claimed prevented them from developing their land by not providing water and sewer service. The settlement is tentative, pending approval by the County Commission at next Tuesdays meeting. Were very pleased, said Janette Knowlton, county attorney. The Rotonda takings saga has come to an end. Knowlton explained that the statute of limitations now becomes a factor since a new utility system was installed in 2011, meaning no new Rotonda sewer suits should be forthcoming. In 2012, the county paid out $13 million in Rotonda I, which involved 150 lots and a lengthy appeals process. In July, a jury trial awarded $3.26 million in damages to Rotonda II plaintiffs, who owned 1,008 lots in the Rotonda area. In both proceedings, 20th Circuit County settles Rotonda IIIBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERROTONDA | 6 SUN PHOTO BY ADAM KREGERCharlotte County Emergency Management Director Wayne Sallade, who hasnt been to school since gradu ating from Florida State University in 1976, received a score of 99/100 on his rst assignment as a student with Lander University (Greenwood, S.C., where he is pursuing a Master of Science in emergency manage ment) a paper about funding for emergency management programs and what drives it. In the future, Sallade hopes to create a masters program for emergency management at another university.Its been almost four decades since Wayne Sallade graduated from Florida State University. But now hes going back to school. He wants to become a teacher and spread the knowledge hes gained while spending nearly half his life as Charlotte Countys Emergency Management director. I was a little overwhelmed at first, the 60-year-old said. But I think its going to be fun. This chatter of college and teaching doesnt mean the dedicated director plans to step down now. But in an interview with the Sun hes talking for the first time about that day coming, and eventually moving to Colorado. Sallade has begun to take online classes from Lander University in Greenwood, S.C., in pursuit of a Master of Science degree in emer gency management a brand-new offering for the school. Program manager Dr. Charles Stowe searched the country to personally handpick who hed invite to be in the inaugural class of eight. He came across the distinguished local EM director who guided Charlotte through Hurricane Charley in 2004 via the popular social networking website LinkedIn. I decided to go out and find the experts in the field, Stowe said. (Sallade) was engaged in a lot of group discussions (on LinkedIn). He knew where he stood, and he brought a slightly different per spective to the discussions. Stowe liked what he read about Sallade, so he contacted him about enrolling in Landers new masters program, and eventually becoming an adjunct professor to teach future students. He has a Ph.D. level of experience, Stowe said of Sallade. And hes very articulate. Hes very good at engaging people. Sallade said he discussed it with his wife Vicki, and decided this summer he would like to teach Sallade eyes teaching, but not retirement yetBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERSALLADE | 6PUNTA GORDA Work began Thursday on the long-awaited, multimillion-dollar terminal expansion at the Punta Gorda Airport. With passenger trafc already at nearly a half-million travelers so far this year, the expansion is the latest in a string of capital projects that is preparing the airport to be a major player in a small, yet growing market. State Sen. Lizbeth Benacquisto, R-Fort Myers (whose district includes part of Punta Gorda, including the airport area) applauded local leader ship for supporting expansion efforts that, thus far, have brought to the airport a bigger long-term parking lot, an improved rental-car facility, and soon an $8 million terminal roughly three times larger than the existing Bailey Terminal. We know that for the investment that was made, the impact is so great not just for Charlotte County and Punta Gorda, but for all Southwest Florida and the state as a whole, Benacquisto said. It increases jobs, Expansion begins on airport terminalBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITEREXPANSION | 6 WHAT WAYNE SAYS ABOUT: The Florida State football team going undefeated: Not so sure. Maybe in the regular season, but a playoff presents a different scenario. The scar iest scenario an emergency management director could face: A terrorist attack, because of the many uncertainties and the panic which would ensue. The biggest change in the field between when he started as director 27 years ago and now: Without question, its the technology and electronic tools. We didnt even have our own office computer when I started in 1987, and cellphones were in their infancy. Retirement: Im certainly entering the home stretch in this portion of my career. Im pretty sure retirement is something reserved for folks other than myself. I just dont seem to be the retiring type. Ive committed to at least two more years, and then well see where things stand, as far as moving into teaching in this field I love.

SARASOTA COUNTY A North Port woman faces one felony count each of grand theft and fraud for stealing and later pawning thousands of dollars of silverware from an elderly woman whose house she cleans, according to the Sarasota County Sheriffs Office. Autumn Barnett, 31, of the 4100 block of Lorri Circle, allegedly stole the silverware, which the 79-year-old victim received as a wedding present in 1957, in mid-July, a report shows. The victim suspected Barnett, who works as a self-employed house cleaner, had stolen the silverware and contacted authorities, who began checking with area pawn shops for recent transactions made by Barnett. Their investigation revealed that Barnett recently made 22 separate pawn transactions, and had pawned items matching the stolen silverware at a pawn shop in Sarasota. The stolen silverware was valued at $13,000, according to the report. Barnett made an admission to authorities during a Tuesday interview, but that admission was redacted from the report. She was taken into custody around 3 p.m. Wednesday in the 4500 block of Englewood Road and transported to the Sarasota County Jail, where she was released Thursday on $3,000 bond. The investigation is ongoing, as authorities believe there may be additional victims. Barnett has no previous arrest history in Sarasota County, according to court records.Email: dwinchester@sun-herald. comWoman charged with stealing silver worth $13KBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITER BARNETT Knock-Out team event returnsIts a Knock-Out will make its triumphant return Oct. 26 on the great lawn of the Four Points by Sheraton Punta Gorda Harborside, 33 Tamiami Trail.

He also dispelled myths about the new Florida Standards, and made legislative recommendations. The educational journey through different time periods went from the Industrial Revolution of the 1800s, to when the Sovi et Union rst launched Sputnik as the worlds rst articial satellite in the 1950s. Then, continued up to the challenges with new technology and high-stakes testing today. Many of the women gathered at the Unity Church of Peace at North Port recently to hear his lecture were retired educators, who had lived through events like Sputnik, which created more of an emphasis on math and science in the classroom. There were also some active educators who appreciated the wisdom of their elders. The Gamma Nu Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International, a professional honor society of women educators, hosted the event. One of our goals at Gamma Nu is to remain in touch with whats happening in education in Charlotte County, said hostess Barbara Davis. Whittaker said that back in the 1950s only around 50 percent of students graduated high school. Wed be taken to the cleaners if we were at 50 percent today, he said. He asked the educators in the room why that wasnt a big deal back then. They responded that it was because they could get a job, a good job with health benets, but that has changed. Unlike the past, many assembly line workers today have bachelors degrees because the manual with new technology has gotten so complicated. He said that during the Industrial Revolution, the factory model made sense, but it doesnt anymore and that is why schools have moved toward a more integrated model of education known as the Florida Standards (Common Core). A few years ago, the Charlotte County School District adopted Common Core. These standards rolled out in K-2 from 2012-13, in upper elementary and middle schools this year, and they will roll out at the high school level next school year. The No. 1 myth about the Florida Standards, according to Whittaker, is its federal overreach, which he said simply isnt true. The second myth is that the standards are dumbing down, which he said couldnt be further from the truth because its actually more rigorous. Its going to be very challenging, but once we get this in K-12, our kids will be better prepared for a global economy to problem solve and think critically so they under stand what they read at a deeper level, he said. While kids have to keep up with a more challenging curriculum to compete in todays economy, Whittaker cautioned that the many days of high-stakes testing is giving kids the bad habit of skimming and scanning for the test instead of just reading. But what we have been doing in recent years has been driving kids away from a love of reading, he said. Teachers themselves are actually a better barometer of kids progress than the test because testing produces too many variables such as test anxiety or sleepiness or attentiveness on that day, he added. Whittaker said Florida is one of the most highly regulated states in education, and he urged the crowd, communicate with your legislators to back off the tight legislation. He recommended telling legislators: We dont mind accountability, but we dont want to be told how to teach, when to teach. Carol Walsh, a retired educator, agreed. I do understand the idea of grasping onto the curriculum and the concepts, if you measure that from our state tests, and they need to do that, but I feel all this testing has taken the joy out of learning. Gale Carter, a teacher at Port Charlotte High School, also liked the superintendents lecture. I think he was very direct, she said. I liked how he gave historical background and great recommendations. Weve got to go after those legislators. Superintendent lectures about changes in educationBy SOMMER BROKAWSTAFF WRITER ENGLEWOOD This week in 1979, Charlie Daniels took home the Country Music Association Single of the Year award for The Devil Went Down To Georgia. That night, Daniels won the most awards of any artist. The soon-to-be 78-year-old plans to play favorites from his 50-year career tonight in a sold-out show at the Englewood Event Center. Longtime locals David Dignam and his old buddy Michael Diez will be in the audience of about 500. The pair shared a small connection to the Charlie Daniels Band. When we were young, a guy named Syd owned a truck-driving company, said Dignam, 52. He always had the newest Charlie Daniels album logo on his semi-truck. As he drove down the road to his house on Larchmont Drive, we would get on our bikes and follow him. He would park the semi-truck and then let us see everything inside from his road trip. Over time, Diez became friends with the truck driver, who delivered equipment for the Charlie Daniels Band shows throughout the U.S. Sydney was quiet about working for Charlie Daniels and other artists, Diez said. He was always working. Charlie Daniels does hundreds of shows every year, so Sydney was always gone. He was very much involved in the music business. I worked on and off with Sydney. He had a ton of stories he would tell. Sydney died a few years ago, he said. He was denitely Englewoods connection to Charlie Daniels. Sydney was one of the most giving people you ever want to meet in life. Dignam and Diez went to a Charlie Daniels concert in Tampa during that time. Mike is a couple of years older than me, but neither of us were old enough to drive, Dignam said. Mikes mom drove us to the Tampa Fairgrounds. It was a great concert. It was when The Devil Went Down to Georgia came out. Dignam said he remembered being invited to a few backyard barbecues at Sydneys house behind Englewood Isles. Sydney and his brothers would pick at the guitar and make music, Dignam said. Years later, my son Brandon bought a foreclosed house. It was Syds old home. I told Brandon to go up in the attic, because Syd might have had something in there from all of his years driving for bands. I also told him the reason there were cracks in the driveway was because it wasnt built for a semi-truck to be parked on it all of the time. Dignam says hes going to wear his best cowboy shirt, blue jeans and boots to the concert. I dont want to wear a cowboy hat, because I dont want to block anyones view, Dignam said. A local band Copperhead is opening for Charlie Daniels. They are a southern rock/ country band. I heard them play recently, and they are pretty good. Diez said hes glad Charlie Daniels picked Englewood to perform. Its a very, very cool thing hes coming here, Diez said. He has played in Port Charlotte for a benet concert for Toys for Tots. He played in Punta Gorda and in Sarasota. Charlie is a giving person. Hes older; I dont know how he does it. Following one more show in Florida, Daniels is headed to the Grand Ole Opry next week.Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgCharlie Daniels coming to Englewood tonightBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHSTAFF WRITERTEST YOUR CHARLIE DANIELS KNOWLEDGEA.

Flanked by Charlotte County commissioners, Punta Gorda City Council members, state lawmakers, area chambers of commerce staffers and local business leaders, airport ofcials used ceremonial golden shovels Thursday to dig up dirt on the site of the airports old administrative services building, where the termi nals new wing will be. Charlotte County Airport Authority Executive Director Gary Quill said construction crews have about three weeks of prep work, including cleanup of asbestos in the building, before demolition begins. Once the building is taken down and the debris hauled off, construction on the new wing will begin. Work is expected to be completed in early 2016. One of the things that the expansion of the terminal will do, is going to allow us to expand our service, authority Commissioner Pam Seay said. Which is needed, given the airports recent growth. Nearly 475,000 passengers traveled through the airport in the rst three quarters of the year, compared with 333,611 passengers in all of 2013. In just two and a half years, Allegiant Air has increased its menu of destinations to the city sevenfold, making Punta Gorda among the fastest-growing airports its size in the country. Allegiant now ies from Punta Gorda to 21 destinations.Email: email@example.comEXPANSIONFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY BRENDA BARBOSAThe Charlotte County Airport Authority breaks ground on a new $8 million terminal expansion at the Punta Gorda Airport. Pictured, from left are: Airport Authority Commissioners Pam Seay, Kathleen Coppola, Paul Andrews and Don Lee; and authority Executive Director Gary Quill. Judge Joseph Foster declared the county committed a taking of the plaintiffs property by denying them building permits in the absence of water and sewer systems. The larger award in the rst case was due, in part, because the judge ruled it was a permanent taking versus a temporary taking in the second case. Also, the Rotonda I plaintiffs lost their properties to foreclosure, while Rotonda II plaintiffs still own their land and maintain a potential for prot. The Rotonda III plaintiffs Rotonda Group Investments LLC and Lynnell LLC own 104 lots, consisting of 102 single-family lots in the Rotonda Villas subdivision and two lots located in the Rotonda Meadows subdivision. The lawsuit was led last year by property owners John Arnold, managing member of Rotonda Group Investments, and his wife Lynnell Arnold. The Rotonda III plaintiffs claim the county committed a temporary taking of their property for a ve-year period, from Feb. 13, 2006, when Charlotte County refused to issue building permits, until March 31, 2011, when a new utility system began operations. However, according to a motion by the county in August for the case to be dismissed, Rotonda III plaintiffs admitted they rst learned of the regulatory restriction in November 2011 more than ve years after the taking and six months after the sewer system was operable. Consequently, there was no nancial hardship, the motion stated. Knowlton said the countys position regarding all the Rotonda suits is that the countys actions did not amount to a taking of the properties. Charlotte County is appealing the judges nding of liability in Rotonda II. County Commissioner Tricia Duffy expressed relief that this weeks settlement averted the much larger nancial compensation sought in Rotonda III. She also was ready to bid adieu to all such lawsuits. I consider it a nuisance lawsuit, and Im happy this will be the last of them, Duffy said. County Administrator Ray Sandrock said having the Rotonda suits wrapped up removes nancial uncertainties in the planning process. From a budget per spective, weve always had these issues looming over us, he said, and the potential impact on providing services in the community.Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgROTONDAFROM PAGE 1 after he hangs it up as Charlottes EM director in a couple years, maybe longer. So he enrolled at Lander. I cant just stop and go fish or golf, Sallade said of life after his current role. Theres too much Ive done, seen and experienced that I have bottled up and want to share with others in this business and its a growing field. Sallade expects to earn his 31-credit masters in a little over a year. He hopes to have adjunct professor status before that. And Sallade is so impressed by Landers new course and his classmates which include a former state EM director from South Carolina, the manager of a United Technologies plant and a cybersecurity expert that he plans to take things a step further. Eventually, Sallade hopes to talk Colorado Mesa University into allowing him to help start a similar EM masters program at the school in Grand Junction, where he and his wife would like to move. Stowe and Sallade feel the course is valuable because it is more of a think tank among expert students, rather than a classic course setup where teachers teach and students listen. However there is still homework for the students. Sallade who currently is taking classes Foundations of Emergency Management and Preparedness and Mitigation said school has changed a bit since he graduated from FSU in 1976. I know the stuff, said Sallade, whos been the local EM director for 27 years. But I have to use Blackboard (an Internet-based learning platform) and write papers with footnotes and all that. Classes began last month. Sallade recently turned in his first graded assignment a paper about funding for EM programs and what drives it. Well see how I do, he said, before he learned what his grade was. The proof should be in the pudding. His score? An unsur prising 99/100.Email: email@example.comSALLADEFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY ADAM KREGERAt the age of 60, Charlotte County Emergency Management Director Wayne Sallade has decided to pursue a Master of Science in emergency management.

Our Town Page 8 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, October 10, 2014 Parkside project was steamrolledEditor: On Sept. 29, the Sun ran a front page story, Parkside plan taking shape. An excerpt from the story states, Residents will have a last opportunity to hash out revisions to a development code that aims to make Parkside a more livable community. Wrong! Then on Oct. 3, another story was written with the headline, Community supports Parkside plan. Another ruse. There was no mention of Commissioner Duffys outburst when she commented that she was sick and tired of people bringing negative comments about what she and her cohorts have been working so hard on to secure their Parkside project. And anyone who speaks out against her project has their own agenda. This outburst was due to questions being asked about the cost of the project at hand but also of the maintenance of this project in the future. The importance of this question was due to the fact that the maintenance of the countys existing infrastructure is extremely under par or nonexistence. It seems the whole reason for Parkside is to build a business hub of tax breaks for a few. The idea that residents have any say on this project is a farce. If you dont think so, ask Commission Duffy what her agenda is, or compare this project to Murdock Village, watch her unprofessional explosion. All negative remarks are not reported, only those that want this project to be steamrolled in. So much for residents having a say in Parkside plans.Steve Brock Port CharlotteCommission guts smart growth principlesEditors: On Sept. 23, Charlotte County commissioners voted to adopt a massive amendment to our comprehensive plan formerly known as SmartCharlotte2050. SmartCharlotte2050 was adopted in June 2010 and nalized in 2011 after 30 public input sessions, workshops, presentations, hearings, over 800 online comments and a legal challenge. By contrast, Charlotte 2050 entertained just two roundtables and three hearings. I strenuously objected to the massive gutting of natural resource protection regarding wetlands, oodplains, wildlife corridors and buffers. Commissioners have thrown their hands off the steering wheel regarding natural resource protection and have left the driving up to state agencies. State agencies issue permits. They dont plan. Thats what a good, strong, reliable comprehensive plan is supposed to do. In an era when local govern ments beg for more control, our government ceded control to the state. SmartCharlotte2050 landuse policies directed growth away from inappropriate areas like the Coastal High Hazard Zone and environmentally sensitive lands and directed growth toward more suitable areas. These core land-use policies are now relaxed in the new plan SmartCharlotte2050. The sound planning principles of smart growth, along with words like sprawl and sustainable are completely stricken. Strong active verbs like preserve, foster, create, protect, adopt and deny are replaced by discourage or encourage. Shall is replaced by may. During these 30 days after adoption, organizations and individuals will decide whether or not to challenge the amended plan in court. Stay tuned.Debra L. Highsmith Punta GordaComplaints about bicylists, linesEditor: People on bicycles already think they rule the road. Now theres signs painted on two of the busiest roads in town. When I was little I rode my bike on the sidewalk. Now theres people riding down the center lanes of Marion and Olympia. Everyone has been complaining about the bikers on Taylor Road, and instead they paint signs on the main roads instead of adding a shoulder to Taylor. Isnt Marion and Olympia part of U.S. 17, which is a state road? Did the city paint on a state road without the states permission, or did the state OK it?Charlie Kujawski II Punta GordaMistake to destroy valuable propertyEditor: I was reading in todays paper about the Wildlife Center being in limbo. The Wildlife Center does a wonderful job helping our injured wildlife and educating the public about wildlife. It is an asset to our community. I would think that Grande Harbor Development Group would be able and willing to donate that one acre to the Wildlife Center. It would be a tax write-off for them. Eventually, they will develop the land and have condominiums for sale from which they will prot. It would show good faith and community spirit to dedicate this small parcel of land for the good of the animals and the community. It would be very sad to see a mistake that happened many years ago destroy such a valuable part of our city.Pamela Gross Port CharlotteNo support for sewer projectEditor: This proposed sewer project between West Tarpon and Port Charlotte boulevards is not mandated. It is not mandated. I cant tell you how many times I have seen that it is mandated in your newspaper. There are many more areas much closer to the river that need sewers far more than our neighborhood, which is a fact. That brings me to another point. The commissioners are freely elected and are supposed to follow the will of their constituents. Meanwhile, they do whatever the heck they feel like doing, ignoring hours and hours of voters standing up and protesting these actions. Oh well, too bad, we can, so we will, next? Now Im in ofce so theres nothing you can do about it, ha-ha! We continue to pay thousands and thousands of dollars a day in interest for the Murdock Village asco, but it seems to have been forgotten. The amount we have invested in that project alone could probably pay for the entire sewer project, as it was originally proposed. It hasnt even made it off the drawing board, and prices are increasing exponentially. Oh my God, we elected these people? What can we do? The Health Department has the paperwork to prove that our septics are working properly, and have been charging us $135 every ve years to have them pumped and inspected. What about that? We are in deep. I cannot afford a $500 add-on to my next 20 tax bills.David Lang Port CharlotteLegalizing pot in FloridaEditor: What are the facts concerning Amendment 2, the so called medical marijuana initiative? Amendment 2 places no restrictions on the location of pot shops. Look for pot docs to spring up in your neighbor hood shopping center. Amendment 2 allows so called, caregivers to dispense medical marijuana with no medical training required. They can be felons even drug dealers. The only requirement for a caregiver is to be age 21 or over. Under federal law, a phy sician is prohibited from dispensing a prescription for medical marijuana. Conveniently, Amendment 2 does not require a doctors prescription to obtain medical pot, just a recommendation. The authors of Amendment 2 dene debilitating medical condition as any condition from back pain to trouble sleeping. As a result, anyone who wants marijuana will get it from the person behind the counter at the pot shop. Furthermore, under this amendment, teenagers will be able to legally purchase marijuana without their parents consent because Amendment 2 places no age restrictions on who patients are and guarantees condentiality for all patients. Thus, kids who cannot purchase alcohol or cigarettes due to the legal age to do so, will be able to buy marijuana legally. Also under Amendment 2, those responsible for dispensing, selling and taking medical marijuana cannot be held liable for resulting property damage, injury or death, even in the event of gross negligence, malpractice or abuse. In all, Amendment 2 is written and designed to legalize pot smoking in Florida. Vote no!Bob Reichert Punta GordaLocal business is appreciatedEditor: We would like to send a well-done to local business Nearly New, owned by Liz and Eric, located on Access Road in East Englewood.

HOW TO SUBMIT A LETTER TO THE EDITOREmail letters to email@example.comChairman Derek Dunn-Rankin Publisher David Dunn-Rankin Executive Editor Chris Porter Editorial page editor Brian Gleason Editorial writer Stephen Baumann Editor John Hackworth V IEWPOINT Charter schools can succeed, but no guaranteesOUR POSITION: Charter schools can be successful, but they may not be the salvation of education in Florida.Florida has done as much as any other state we know of to perpetuate the notion that charter and/or private schools are the answer to better-educated students. But the success and failure rate of charter schools lends no solid evidence for that argument. In fact, charter schools in Florida documented in a series of stories in the Naples Daily News have a hit-and-miss history. For every Sarasota Military Academy and Charlotte Countys Edison Collegiate High School, shining examples of charter schools with A grades and nancial stability, there are failures like Community Green in DeSoto County and Charlotte Countys Alpha Center. Sarasota County currently has 11 charter schools up and running. Applications recently to the Sarasota County Board of Education for four more are in limbo. Sarasota has had great success at most of its charter schools although the board is currently monitoring nances at troubled Imagine schools in North Port and Palmer Ranch. Charlotte County has limited experience with charter schools although Edison Collegiate, on the campus of Florida SouthWestern State Colleges Charlotte campus, has performed extraordinarily well with A grades. An earlier foray into the charter school business faltered back in 2001 when the Alpha Centers char ter was revoked after two years. The Alpha Center, elementary through high school, was approved in a split 3-2 vote by the Charlotte County Board of Education. Commissioner Lee Swift said at the time he had reservations of the schools education program. Two years later, $1.2 million in debt, the school was closed. It meant 120 students had to be absorbed into Charlotte public schools with little or no notice. Community Green, in DeSoto County, was another short-lived project. Formed by sincere, yet inexperienced, patrons who wanted an alternative to DeSoto County schools, it was plagued with issues including claims of poor oversight of students by educators. Only 42 percent of Floridas charter schools earned an A rating in 2013 still better than the 31 percent with an A rating in public schools. Critics say because of the low teacher-to-pupil ratios and the promises made by charter school administrations, they expect better. Of 900 charter schools in the state, 269 have closed since 1996, according to the Naples Daily News. That is a 30 percent failure rate. A key reason is the lack of nancial stability. Of 119 charter schools that have closed their doors since 2008, 75 failed for nancial reasons, the Daily News reports. That is not surprising when you consider the state requires no nancial account to open a charter school and requirements for contin ued funding are murky. The schools get state nancing mostly based on their own enrollment projections. The Legislature has formed a task force of charter school operators and school district personnel to look at problems with charter schools. Some of the suggestions on the table, according to the Daily News, include requiring more stable nancial backing to open the school. Also, the task force is looking at giving more control over charter school to the local school boards where they operate. We like those ideas. There is surely a role for charter schools in the Florida education system. But at a cost of $1 billion a year for Florida taxpayers, they must be more tightly regulated to prevent good-intentioned, but inexperienced or nancially lacking operators from opening and closing schools on a whim. The current formula is unfair to students.
The Sun /Friday, October 10, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINTThings are spinning out of control. Out of control, at least, by government, and by the United States government in particular. You dont have to spend much time reading the news or monitoring your Twitter feed to get that impression. Armed ghting in Ukraine. Islamic State beheadings in Iraq and Syria. Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators in Hong Kong. Ebola spreading from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea to Dallas, Texas, where 100 people were exposed to the Liberian who lied to airport screeners and arrived in the United States with the disease. Or the Spanish nurse who came down with the disease. No wonder embattled Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., stumbled when asked whether the Obama administration was handling Ebola well. He ran an ad in August accusing his Republican opponent, Rep. Tom Cotton, of somehow leaving the nation unprepared for the epidemic. But Pryor had nothing coherent to say this week. The Ebola death in Dallas and the beheadings in the Middle East illustrate how what happens elsewhere in the world doesnt stay there. It comes back to strike the United States sooner or later sooner and sooner, it seems, these days. It is a misreading of history to believe that Americans typically have been unconcerned with what happens across the oceans or south of the border. Since the 1790s, when the Founders split into two political parties one sympathetic to revolutionary France in a world war, one sympathetic to British royalists Americans have recog nized they are affected by foreign developments. In the last century, after seeing threats rise from Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan, they have come to expect their presidents to prevent things from spinning out of control abroad. And they have come to expect that government should perform competently at home. More competently than, say, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Internal Revenue Service or the Secret Service have been performing lately. Barack Obama came to ofce believing that in a time of economic distress, voters would want an even larger government to respond to nancial crisis and bolster the economy. In 2009 and 2010, he and his congressional supermajorities believed that their major policies big spending increases in the stimulus package, Obamacare, and higher taxes on high earners would be popular. People would be happy if a competent government gave them more of what Mitt Romney infelicitously called free stuff. Turns out thats not the case. The stimulus package and Obamacare were unpopular when proposed and, even after the bills were passed so that we would know what was in them, they have remained unpopular ever since. As for higher tax rates on high earners, voters just dont seem to care. Thats why it is Republicans and not Democrats who are running ads this campaign cycle on Obamacare. It helps explain the apparent trend toward Republicans in most seriously contested Senate races, as well as why the House Democrats campaign committee is pulling money out of races to unseat Republicans and putting it into races to protect incumbent Democrats. Undermining the case for big government is an increasing perception that big government just doesnt work very well even at things nearly everyone agrees government should do, such as providing health care for veterans or protecting the president and his family. The deterioration in governments competence is not just a recent or American phenomenon. Thats a point made in three recent books by the Economists John Micklethwait and Adrian Wooldridge, Yale law professor Peter Schuck and New York lawyer Philip Howard. Its also a major topic in Francis Fukuyamas recently released Political Order and Political Decay. But it is a process that has gained speed under a president who doesnt seem much interested in the mechanics of government and whose condence that more spending will produce better results keeps being undermined by events. Democrats this year are running not just against the trend that presidencies usually (though not always) grow stale in their sixth year. They are in the uncomfortable position of defending policies that work against the grain of change in an Information Age, and for putting more trust in a government that isnt competently performing basic tasks. Thats an uphill climb as the world spins out of control, government keeps oundering and the president seems unable to master events. Michael Barone is a senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner. Readers can reach him via www. washingtonexaminer.com.Defensive over role of government Michael Barone Recently an editorial in the Charlotte Sun described the school districts ongoing discussion about adding hours to the instructional day at the elementary school level. As the editorial pointed out, other districts such as Sarasota have adopted a policy like this. For Charlotte County, where standardized test scores have shown a decline, adding more hours to the school day seems a no-brainer. But like so many quick xes, we have to look at the pros and cons of such a move. Studies have shown that its not just the amount of time spent on education that matters, its also the quality of that time. Its instructive to note that one of the most comprehensive studies on time management in the schools, done by the National Education Commission on Time and Learning, is titled Prisoners of Time. The authors conclude that Common sense sufces: American students must have more time for learning. The six-hour, 180-day school year should be relegated to museums, an exhibit from our education past. Both learners and teachers need more time not to do more of the same, but to use all time in new, different, and better ways. The key to liberating learning lies in unlocking time. Years ago, when I was a principal at Tanglewood Elementary School in Lee County, the mother of a child with Down syndrome asked me for help. Her child wasnt learning within the regular connes of the school day. The mother and I agreed that shed enroll the child in a private learning academy on Saturday mornings and work with her at home. Our school would nd ways to accommodate her daughters needs within the limitations of our time and space. Thanks to that mothers determination and the exibility we brought to the table, her daughter graduated years later with an AA degree from Edison State College. Another approach we tried at Tanglewood was something called the Continuous Progress Placement Curriculum, which allowed the child to move from grade to grade as they were ready to progress. The child was assigned to a team of three teachers, who had kindergarten, rst and second graders. Every child was assessed as to where they were in reading and math, and then they were placed into a group of children who were also reading and performing mathematically at that level. There could be 7-year-olds, 6-year-olds, and 5-year-olds all in that reading or math group. As soon as a child was ready and had mastered kindergarten math or reading, they move up to the next grade level of achievement. If they didnt, theyd stayed with that teacher until they had mastered all of their math. The teacher was teaching individuals within that group, but most of them were within the level in the curriculum. It may be two years, it may be four years, but if it was four years a child wasnt as acutely aware that they had been retained. They were just with the same group of teachers, moving through achievement levels at their own pace. David C. Berliner, an educational psychologist, says there are three progressive steps in good school time management. The rst component is allocated time. This is foundational because if you dont have time allocated, you dont have it to use. So you have to start with how much time is needed for this child to learn. The second component is the engagement, or meaningful teaching. If you simply add time to the day and the teaching is not effective or the child is not engaged in that teaching, then all youve done is add time without accomplishing anything. The nal component is success rate; if a child is engaged but he/she still cant do the task at the end, then you still havent succeeded. Every parent knows how complex his/her child is. Now multiply that complexity times the number of children in the school district, and youll begin to understand why there are no simple xes. We are prisoners of time, yet our goal is to avoid treating children as if they are on an assembly line of education. Practices such as social promotion and retention are heatedly debated by the policymakers, but the research clearly states that both of these are failed systems. The only way to avoid potentially damaging a child is to prevent him/her from failing in the rst place. The best way to do that is to increase the amount of quality instructional time the student spends in school. Doug Whittaker is superintendent of Charlotte County Public Schools.

The Sun /Friday, October 10, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 11 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS A team of 29 competitors and coaches from Nokido Ju-Jitsu, Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu recently took part in the Jujitsu America National Tournament in Fort Lauderdale, and every single competitor walked away with at least one medal. Contenders from all over the U.S. participated in the event, according to Sensei Earl DelValle, who serves as head instructor for Nokido Ju-Jitsu, Judo & BJJ, which is located at 1050 Innovation Ave., Unit B-109, North Port. DelValle was also named Instructor of the Year at the event. He said that honor was based on determinations made by ju-jitsu Americas board of directors on ones ability to teach Jujitsu and help develop students in the art. It was a surprise and I wasnt expecting it, thats for sure, DelValle said. Im honored, obviously. I started our program back in 2003. Chris Ritchie, whos my assistant instructor, runs the business. We teach about 140 students right now. The fact that all of our competitors took home medals is a testament to their hard work and training. Theyre very dedicated students and were proud of all of them. A lot of them train five days a week. They have a great work ethic and theyve put in a lot of time on the mat to perfect their technique. Competitors at the Sept. 26-28 tournament were sorted by age (from 6 to 45), weight and rank ranging from white to black belt. The events were divided between self-defense and fighting. They performed self-defense techniques in which they needed to display the reality of the techniques and their performance of the techniques, DelValle said. The fighting competitors took part in ju-jitsu fighting, which starts out as punching, blocking and kicking until the first person grabs. Then it becomes takedowns and grappling and fighting for submission. DelValle, 42, is a retired law enforcement detective whose neck was broken while pursuing a suspect in the line of duty. He now lives in North Port with his wife and two daughters. DelValle said he has been involved with martial arts since he was a teen. He has a sixth-degree black belt in ju-jitsu, and holds black belts in judo and karate. He said his martial arts training helped him recover from his injury. It saved my life and kept me out of a wheelchair, he said. Ive also been in a lot of situations as a police officer when I had to use it, so thats a real benefit. And Ive seen it change kids lives. You have kids that come into our program with zero confidence, low self-esteem, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, or any number of other issues going on in their lives. They may not do well in team sports, but they excel at martial arts. Its great to see the transformation in their lives. It increases self-esteem, discipline and respect. They learn about tradition and honor while having fun at the same time. Ariel Rivera of North Port can attest to that. Rivera, 45, medaled at the tournament in the self-defense event teamed with his daughter, Jaden, 15. I performed six attacks and she had to defend those attacks, demonstrating selfdefense techniques, Rivera said. Then we switched roles. They scored us on the techniques and how elaborate they were. Things get more complicated when props like fake guns, knives and sticks are involved. Rivera added the program has changed his life, making me a more aware person, a more humble person and more considerate of others. Nokido Ju-Jitsu, Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offers once-a-week classes for younger students that start at $35 per month, while classes for teens and adults range up to $65 per month.

PHOTO PROVIDEDThe breast cancer stamp, which was created in 1998, has raised more than $79 million for research.PUNTA GORDA In his bright pink pants and pink-and-black sunglasses, heads turn and eyes pop at the sight of Steven Bernier, postmaster of the Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte and Murdock post ofces. Thats if its casual Friday like today. On other days, hes more likely to don his pink jacket or vest for a more professional look. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and post ofces nationwide are promoting sales of their breast cancer stamp, with 11 cents of each 60-cent stamp going to breast cancer research. In fact, theres a competition among the post ofces to see which sells the most stamps. Last year, the Punta Gorda post ofce came in rst in the Suncoast District, and third in the country. Thats right, the post ofce in this small town beat out 402 post ofces in the district, which includes the Tampa area, and 31,098 post ofces nationwide. This year, its shooting for the rst-place spot. The staff could do it. Last year, Punta Gorda sold $30,777 in breast cancer stamps, while the No. 1 post ofce sold $47,000. Berniers over-the-top attire is only one part of Punta Gordas strategy. Huge, wooden pink ribbons ank the front entrance with big pink tulle bows on each pole. A pink-ribbon ag ies high on the agpole, just below the U.S. ag. Inside, pink ribbons and balloons adorn the service areas, and a pink graph tracks growing sales. This is the only day of the year that post ofces are permitted to decorate, said Bernier, so we make the most of it. We all know someone who has or had breast cancer. Other area post ofces are in the spirit, too. Kevin Sullivan, postmaster for Venice and North Port, said theyre putting up lots of pink to promote sales of the stamp. Englewoods post ofce is decorated in pink, and the staff wears pink to draw attention to the cause. Bernier said the Port Charlotte and Murdock branches are decorated, too, and did well in the competition last year, considering their small size. The breast cancer stamp is the only fundraising stamp the post ofce sells. Its also a work of art. Created in 1998 by Ethel Kessler of Bethesda, Md., it includes the words, Fund the ght and Find a Cure, accompanied by an illustration of a mythi cal goddess of the hunt by Whitney Sherman of Baltimore. Since 1998, the stamp has raised more than $79 million for breast cancer research. It all has to do with our customers, Bernier said. They open up their hearts and souls to help. Well, with a little nudge from his clerks. How about some breast cancer stamps today? Eileen Dimase was heard to ask every customer. They help fund research and theyre good forever and ever and ever. As customer Alice Cook walked away with her sheet of breast cancer stamps, she explained that she bought them in honor of her daughterin-laws ght. Its absolutely something everyone should support, Cook said.Post offices work to stamp out breast cancerBy BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGERSUN CORRESPONDENT

See page 1.10 things to know NEW YORK The stock market had its worst day of the year Thursday, just 24 hours after recording its best. The Dow Jones industrial average plunged 334 points as falling energy stocks and worries about the global economy sent investors eeing out of the market. The blue-chip index rose 275 points the day before. For three years, U.S. investors have enjoyed a stock market that has, for the most part, quietly and steadily moved higher. The pleasure cruise appears to be over. Market volatility is back and in a big way, market observers say. The stock market hasnt seen day-to-day movements like this since August 2011, when Standard & Poors downgraded the United States credit rating. The S&P downgrade subsequently pushed the U.S. stock market into its last correction, a technical term for when stocks fall 10 percent or more from a recent peak. Investors are not conditioned for this type of market after three good years, said Dean Junkans, chief investment ofcer for Wells Fargo Private Bank. Weve been long overdue for a correction. Words like correction, fear and volatility might scare the average investor just trying to save for retirement. But investors who might be worried should remain calm, said Jurrien Timmer, director Dow suffers worst day of 2014By KEN SWEETAP BUSINESS WRITERDOW | 3 MONROVIA, Liberia Six U.S. military planes arrived in the Ebola hot zone Thursday with more Marines, as West Africas leaders pleaded for the worlds help in dealing with a tragedy unforeseen in modern times. Our people are dying, Sierra Leone President Ernest Bai Koroma lamented by videoconference at a World Bank meeting in Washington. He said other countries are not responding fast enough while children are orphaned and infected doctors and nurses are lost to the disease. Alpha Conde of Guinea said the regions countries are in a very fragile situation. Ebola is an international threat and deserves an inter national response, he said, speaking through a translator as he sought money, medicine, equipment and training for health care workers. Tom Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said he was reminded of the start of the AIDS epidemic. We have to work now so this is not the next AIDS, Frieden said. The eet of planes that landed outside the Liberian capital of Monrovia consisted of four MV-22 Ospreys and two KC-130s. The 100 additional Marines bring to just over 300 the total number of American troops in the country, said Maj. Gen. Darryl A. Williams, the commander leading the U.S. response. Williams joined the American ambassador to Liberia, Deborah Malac, at the airport to greet the aircraft.

But the articial and natural avors used to rev up the taste of processed foods remain a mystery to most Americans. Articial and natural avors have become ubiquitous terms on food labels, helping create vivid tastes that would otherwise be lost in mass production. As the science behind them advances, however, some are calling for greater transparency about their safety and ingredients. Last month, ve consumer and environmental groups sent a letter to the Food and Drug Administration expressing their concern about the avor industry, which deter mines the safety of its own ingredients. The letter noted that safety is sometimes declared based on scientic data that isnt publicly available. If were eating the stuff, it shouldnt be such a secret, said Lisa Lefferts, senior scientist at Center for Science in the Public Interest, a nutrition advocacy group that was among those who sent the letter.Flavors fuel food industry, but remain a mysteryBy CANDICE CHOIAP FOOD INDUSTRY WRITER AP PHOTOThis Sept. 26 photo shows the ingredients label on a can of Campbells soup, in Philadelphia.FLAVORS | 3 Archaeologists working in Indonesia say prehistoric hand stencils and intricately rendered images of primitive animals were created nearly 40,000 years ago. These images, discovered in limestone caves on the island of Sulawesi just east of Borneo, are about the same age as the earliest known art found in the caves of northern Spain and southern France, suggesting that Europe can no longer claim to be the sole birthplace of art. The ndings were published this week in the journal Science. We now have 40,000-yearold rock art in Spain and Sulawesi, said Adam Brumm, a research fellow at Grifth University in Queensland, Australia, and one of the lead authors of the study. We anticipate future rock art dating will join these two widely separated dots with similarly aged, if not earlier art. The ancient Indonesian art was rst reported by Dutch archaeologists in the 1950s, but had never been dated until now. For decades researchers thought that the cave art was made during the pre-Neolithic period, about 10,000 years ago. I can say that it was a great and very nice surprise to read their ndings, said Wil Roebroeks, an archaeologist at Leiden University in the Netherlands, who was not involved in the study. Wow! was my initial reaction to the paper. The researchers said they had no preconceived ideas of how old the rock art was when they started on this project about three years ago. They just wanted to know the date for sure. To do that, the team relied on a relatively new technique called U-series dating, which was also used to establish minimum dates of rock art in Western Europe.

LOUIS (AP) Two months after a Ferguson ofcer killed Michael Brown, setting off intense national debate about law enforcement treatment of minorities, the shooting death of another black 18-year-old by police in nearby St. Louis has reignited anger among activists already planning weekend protests. Police say Vonderrit D. Myers was shot Wednesday after he opened re on a white, off-duty ofcer, but Myers parents say he was unarmed. Some activists and lawmakers say Myers was targeted because he was black and are asking the Justice Department which has opened a civil rights investigation into the death of Brown, who was unarmed to investigate his shooting. This here was racial proling turned deadly, said state Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, a St. Louis Democrat.GOP, White House clash on Secret Service scandalWASHINGTON (AP) Two years after a prostitution scandal rocked the Secret Service, a Republican congressman renewed allegations Thursday about possible involvement by a White House volunteer and said he smelled efforts to cover it up. White House ofcials adamantly denied wrongdoing and said thered been no attempt to keep anything quiet. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, whos been investigating the Secret Service as chairman of a House oversight subcommittee, said in an interview that the White House had new questions to answer in light of information he had received from Secret Service whistleblowers, as well as from a report in Thursdays Washington Post. At issue is President Barack Obamas trip to Cartagena, Colombia, in the spring of 2012 for the Summit of the Americas. Before it ended, the trip was overshadowed by news that some Secret Service agents and U.S. military personnel setting up security ahead of Obamas arrival had hired local pros titutes and brought them back to their hotel rooms. Around two dozen people were implicated, and more than a half-dozen Secret Service agents were subsequently red. Others were disciplined. Thursday, The Washington Post reported new details of allegations against a White House volunteer, Jonathan Dach, who was helping with advance work on the trip. He was cleared in the White House investigation at the time and went on to get a job at the State Department, where he works as an adviser in its Ofce of Global Womens Issues.Woman says airline grounded her due to tweetsMANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) A New Hampshire woman says she was removed from a JetBlue ight after tweeting about the ights delays, which included a pilot having to take a sobriety test. Lisa Carter-Knight, of Exeter, was waiting to board a Boston-bound plane in Philadelphia on Tuesday. JetBlue says it was delayed when the pilot believed another passenger accused him of being intoxicated. JetBlue said as a precaution, a sobriety test was conducted; the pilot was cleared. Carter-Knight made posts to Twitter about the pilot accusing passengers of questioning his sobriety and also posted pictures of the plane. The ight eventually left four hours behind schedule, but Carter-Knight was denied boarding. Carter-Knight, who said JetBlue claimed that she was being unruly, got a refund.Obama wants an election about the economy, not himWASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama is all in with his economic pitch. The American public is not. Over the next 27 days, either the public or the president is going to get the message. In a midterm campaign strategy fraught with risk, the White House is betting that Obamas tight embrace of the economic recovery and populist proposals for gender pay equity and a higher minimum wage will galvanize his core supporters and persuade fencesitting independents to help Democrats retain narrow control of the Senate in November. Addressing young entrepreneurs Thursday at a start-up center in California, Obama will be highlighting his economic record for the third time in eight days. While noting that hes not on the ballot in this election, Obama has become fond of saying that his policies are at stake. The line has prompted a reexive inch from Democrats who are trying to fend off a concerted Republican campaign to link Democratic opponents to the president. For Democrats, the problem is not Obamas message; its the pitchman. The messenger is not the most popular guy on the planet right now, said Democratic pollster Mark Mellman. | WORLD NEWS BRIEFSUS-led coalition ramps up strikes on Syrian townMURSITPINAR, Turkey (AP) The U.S.-led coalition intensied its aerial bombardment of Islamic State positions Thursday in the Syrian border town of Kobani as the extremist group fought street battles with Kurdish forces and reportedly rushed in reinforcements. The battle for the town near the frontier with Turkey has emerged as a major early test for the air campaign aimed at rolling back and eventually destroying the extremist group. It has also strained ties between Washington and Ankara over the long-term U.S. strategy in Syria. On Thursday, the U.S. special envoy for the coalition, retired Marine Gen. John Allen, and NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg were in Turkey to press the country to join military operations. Turkish ofcials have said that while they do not want Kobani to fall, they will not take on a greater role until the coalition outlines a broader strategy that also includes attacking Syrian President Bashar Assad, who is best positioned to benet from any rollback of the Islamic State group.Modiano wins Nobel for works about Nazi occupationPARIS (AP) French novelist Patrick Modiano has devoted his career to exploring the traumas of the Nazi occupation of his country, including how it could strip people of their identities. On Thursday, the 69-year-old Parisians steadfast efforts over the past 45 years earned him the 2014 Nobel Prize in literature. In a sign of how effective his works have been, his 1968 La Place de lEtoile was later hailed in Germany as a key post-Holocaust work. Modiano was out for a walk on Paris Left Bank when he received word of his prize. I was walking near the Luxembourg Gardens when my daughter called with the news, Modiano said at a news conference at the ofces of his French publisher Gallimard. It came as a complete surprise, I just kept walking. It felt like it was happening to my double. He was at a loss when asked how he would celebrate his win. Nothing special. I really didnt expect this, he said, adding that he would dedicate the prize to his grandson, who is Swedish. MODIANOAirstrikes not end of threat from Syrian terror cellWASHINGTON (AP) The barrage of U.S. cruise missiles last month aimed at a Syrian terrorist cell killed just one or two key militants, according to American intelligence ofcials who say the group of veteran al-Qaida ghters is still believed to be plotting attacks against U.S. and European targets. The strikes on a compound near Aleppo did not deal a crippling blow to the Khorasan Group, ofcials said, partly because many important members had scattered amid news reports highlighting their activities. Among those who survived is a Frenchborn jihadi who fought in Afghanistan with a military prowess that is of great concern to U.S. intelligence ofcials now. The strikes were certainly effective in setting back the Khorasan Group, but no one thinks they were a permanent solution or a death blow to the threats that come from this cell, said Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., a member of the House Intelligence Committee.Shiite rebels among 67 killed in Yemen bombingsSANAA, Yemen (AP) Two suicide bombings in Yemen killed nearly 70 people on Thursday, with one targeting an antigovernment rally by Shiite rebels who control Sanaa, leaving body parts strewn across a street in the heart of the capital and escalating sectarian tensions in a country gripped by turmoil. The suicide bomber in Sanaa detonated his explosives-laden belt as he approached a security checkpoint run by Shiite rebels, known as Houthis, outside the anti-government rally, killing 47 people and wounding 75. Hours later, a suicide car bomber rammed a security outpost on the outskirts of the Arabian Sea port city of Mukalla, killing 20 soldiers and wounding 15. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks, but they bore the hallmarks of al-Qaidas powerful local afliate, which for years has waged a campaign of suicide bombings and other attacks against security forces and government facilities despite U.S. drone strikes targeting its leaders.Hong Kong protests unresolved after talks collapseHONG KONG (AP) A pro-democracy protest that has blocked main roads in Hong Kong for almost two weeks could drag on for days yet, after talks aimed at resolving a bitter standoff between the citys government and student demonstrators collapsed Thursday. The government called off the talks hours ahead of the scheduled time Friday, saying the dialogue had been seriously under mined by student leaders call earlier in the day for supporters to turn out in force to occupy the main protest zone. I truly regret that we will not be able to have a meeting tomorrow which will produce any constructive outcome, said Chief Secretary Carrie Lam. Student leaders vow not to retreat from the streets even as the number of protesters occupying the main thoroughfare and streets in two busy shopping districts has dwindled sharply this week.Mexico arrests alleged head of Juarez cartelMEXICO CITY (AP) The alleged leader of the Juarez drug cartel, Vicente Carrillo Fuentes, has been arrested in the northern city of Torreon, two Mexican ofcials said Thursday. Carrillo Fuentes, 51, pur portedly heads the cartel founded by his late brother, Amado Carrillo Fuentes, and Mexico had offered a reward of 30 million pesos ($2.2 million) for his arrest. It was the second capture of a major drug lord in as many weeks. Mexican authorities nabbed Hector Beltran Leyva as he ate sh tacos in a seafood restaurant in central Mexico on Oct. 1. The capos are falling, said Samuel Gonzalez, Mexicos former top anti-drug prosecutor. Its a symptom of the pressure theyre under to give results. The two ofcials, speaking anonymously because they were not authorized to speak to the press, did not provide details of the capture. 50429543 Serving Arcadia Englewood North Port Port Charlotte Punta Gorda Venice1-866-463-1638 Placing your classi ed ad in Floridas Largest Classi ed Section is as easy as 1-2-3!Visit our new & improved website at sun-classi eds.com and schedule up to 5 free 3-line classi ed ads each week.

The Sun /Friday, October 10, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 3 FROM PAGE ONE BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) Bottles of legal marijuana-infused soda delivered to a Washington state pot shop started exploding on the store shelf. The manager of Top Shelf Cannabis, Zach Henin, told KOMO that it sounded like a shotgun going off. No one was injured at the store in Bellingham in northern Washington, where recreational pot is legal. Henin wore a face guard and protective clothing to move more than 300 bottles to a steel trash bin and most had exploded by Tuesday. The sparkling pomegranate soda was made by Mirth Provisions and delivered on Sept. 28. Employees found a sticky mess the next day and heard and saw bottles randomly explode. Mirth Provisions founder Adam Stites says there was too much yeast in the soda and fermentation caused excess carbon dioxide to build up.ODD NEWS Marijuana soda bottles explode at Washington shop ALMANACToday is Friday, Oct. 10, the 283rd day of 2014.

The call for more transparency comes as Americans pay closer attention to what they eat. In some cases, theyre petitioning companies to remove chemicals. Many food scientists say the fears are unfounded because the unfamiliar ingredients often just mimic chemical structures found in nature or are used in trace amounts. But complaints have prompted companies including PepsiCo and Subway to reformulate recipes. As a result of the attention given to chemicals and ingredients as a whole, articial and avors are starting to get attention as well. But they can be frustrating because people often have no clue whats in them.Invisible ingredientThe FDA says natural avors have to be derived from ingredients like fruit, meat or spices, and obtained through processes like distillation or fermentation. Articial avors can be made chemically, say, by mixing an alcohol with a fat. It seems straightforward, but the sophistication involved in making them varies broadly. Some may just be a blend of spices, while others create the illusion that a product contains certain ingredients, like grapes. Flavors can also conjure cooking styles. With frozen dinners, for instance, natural avors are often used to give the impression the meat was grilled or roasted. A company cant grill all that meat, said Terry Miesle, a senior avorist who specializes in savory tastes at Innova Flavors in the Chicago area. But avors can mimic the chemical process of cooking. A avorist might use materials like beef stock, fats and sugar to ignite the reactions to create the grilled taste, he said. Tracking the size of the avor industry is difcult in part because food companies may have their own avorists. But consulting rm Lefngwell & Associates estimates the global industry at about $23.91 billion, up 19 percent from $20 billion in 2000.Flavor advancementsThe safety of avors is determined by the Flavor and Extract Manufacturers Association, an industry trade group. In any given year, FEMA may declare as few as 10 or as many as 100 to be safe, said John Hallagan, the associations senior adviser and general counsel. In all, FEMA says it has found around 3,000 different avors to be safe. Theyre usually used in minute quantities, typically far less than 1 percent of a product. Even so, disclosing their ingredients would likely attract more consumer complaints for companies, which are already facing pressure over ingredients. The groups asking the FDA to look into the avor industry dont necessarily think the ingredients in avors should be listed on packaging, since the chemical names would be meaningless to most. But companies might post information online or elsewhere, said Erik Olson of the Natural Resources Defense Council, one of the groups that sent the letter to the FDA. In the meantime, avors are opening up new possibilities. Senomyx, based in California, makes ingredients that interact with taste receptors to block or amplify attributes like sweetness. They have no taste or smell but are listed as artificial flavors. Senomyx recently said it expects one of its ingredients that allows for the reduction of sugar and high fructose corn syrup to be used in products this year. PepsiCo, which has exclusive rights to use it in non-alcoholic drinks, declined to comment.FLAVORSFROM PAGE 1 them eventually nding 14 suitable works, including 12 hand stencils and two gurative drawings. The small white growths they were looking for are known as cave popcorn, and they are made of mineral deposits that get left in the wake of thin streams of calcium-car bonate-saturated water that run down the walls of a cave. These deposits also have small traces of uranium in them, which decays over time to a daughter product called thorium at a known rate. The ratio between the two elements acts as a kind of geological clock to date the formation of the calcium carbonate deposits, explained Maxime Aubert of the University of Wollongong in Australias New South Wales state, the teams dating expert. Using a rotary tool with a diamond blade, Aubert cut into the cave popcorn and extracted small samples that included some of the pigment of the art. The pigment layer of the sample would be at least as old as the rst layer of mineral deposit that grew on top of it. Using this method, the researchers determined that one of the hand stencils they sampled was made at least 39,900 years ago and that a painting of an animal known as a pig deer was at least 35,400 years old. In Europe, the oldest known cave painting was of a red disk found in a cave in El Castillo, Spain, that has a minimum age of 40,800 years. The earliest gurative painting, of a rhinoceros, was found in the Chauvet Cave in France; it goes back 38,827 years.ARTFROM PAGE 1 enhanced screening of travelers for Ebola at Heathrow and Gatwick airports and Eurostar rail terminals. Prime Minister David Camerons ofce said passengers arriving from West Africa would be questioned about their travels and contacts. Some people could be given a medical assessment and advice on what to do if they develop symptoms. Also Thursday, Liberian police used batons and rattan whips to disperse 100 protesters outside the National Assembly, where lawmakers were debating granting President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf more powers beyond those contained in a state of emergency declared in August. Her handling of the crisis has been criticized as heavy handed and ineffective. Liberian state radio announced that Senate elections scheduled for next week would be postponed. No new date was given. Elsewhere, University of Maryland researchers announced that the rst study of a possible Ebola vaccine in Africa was underway. Scientists say three health care workers in Mali received the exper imental shots developed by the U.S. government. Mali has not had any cases of Ebola, but it borders the outbreak zone. Researchers say early safety tests should be done in Ebola-free countries to avoid complicating factors. If the vaccine appears to be safe, larger trials could be done in the outbreak zone early next year. The U.S. military is working to build medical centers in Liberia and may send up to 4,000 soldiers to help with the Ebola crisis. Medical workers and beds for Ebola patients are sorely lacking.EBOLAFROM PAGE 1 of global macro at Fidelity Investments. The S&P 500 index is still up 4.3 percent this year. And that follows a 30 percent surge last year. Just stick to your longterm (retirement) plan, Timmer said. Thursdays drop was the third straight day investors have been taken on a wild roller coaster ride. On Tuesday the Dow fell 272 points, only to jump by nearly the same amount Wednesday. While 100-plus moves in the Dow have become more common as stocks have risen to record highs, 200-plus point moves had been rare until this week. More than half of this years 200-point moves have happened in the last two weeks. The VIX, a measure of volatility that is sometimes called Wall Streets fear index, jumped 26 percent to its highest level since February. Investors moved into gold, a refuge in times of uncertainty. The violent gyrations are causing havoc for fund managers and active investors (who were) hoping for a smooth fourth quarter, said Todd Schoenberger of J. Streicher Asset Management. Stocks fell at the opening of trading Thursday, and the selling accelerated once European markets closed at midday Eastern time. By the end of the day, the Dow had lost 334.97 points, or 2 percent, to 16,659.25. The Standard & Poors 500 index lost 40.68 points, or 2.1 percent, to 1,928.21 and the Nasdaq composite fell 90.26 points, or 2 percent, to 4,378.34. Few companies were spared from the selling Thursday. All 30 members of the blue chip Dow index fell and 482 of the 500 companies in the S&P 500 index ended the day lower. A large part of Thursdays selling happened in energy stocks, particularly oil and coal companies. The price of oil fell sharply again Thursday, continuing its multi-week decline. Investors are concerned that global oil production remains high despite signs that global demand is slowing.DOWFROM PAGE 1 NEW YORK (AP) A letter by Charles Darwin on the sex life of barnacles and a still-working vintage Apple computer one of only 50 made in Steve Jobs garage in 1976 are among the unique pieces of science history up for auction this month. Buyers at the Oct. 22 event at Bonhams will need deep pockets. The Steve Wozniak-designed Apple 1 computer is estimated to bring $300,000 to $500,000. One sold at auction last year for $671,000. For something really exotic, potential buyers can fork over an estimated $150,000 to $250,000 for a Manhattan Project viewing window that shielded scientists on the secret World War II bomb project from radiation. The clear yellow glass, measuring approximately 3 feet by 4 feet and weighing 1,500 pounds, contains 70 percent lead oxide. Its the rst time a full window from the Manhattan Project has come on the market, said Cassandra Hatton, Bonhams specialist on the history of science. The auction also has a wide range of globes and other technological instruments. They include the earliest electric keyboard, a rare 1905 Helmholtz sound synthesizer with a pre-sale estimate of $20,000 to $30,000. Hatton says this is Bonhams rst sale in New York of artifacts of science and technology, which has become a growing area of interest among tech-savvy buyers. I think increasingly things the stuff of our world is attracting collectors who consider and value the historical and cultural context of artifacts as much as their material value, added Sarah Lichtman, director of The New Schools masters degree program in the history of decorative arts and design. Darwins 1857 letter to a colleague about barnacles is classic Darwin and denitely amusing, said David Kohn, director and general editor of the Darwin Manuscripts Project at the American Museum of Natural History. Its Darwins passion for the meaning of sex, Kohn said. In the letter, estimated to bring $20,000 to $30,000, Darwin says he wants to learn more about the sex act of barnacles, such things as were the specimens under water at times and if the recipient was in full vigor? The letters historical signicance, Kohn said, is that Darwins still pur suing this evolutionary theme of reproduction. ... Darwin is observing, shing and nding the exact signicance of it. Kohn said theres a big market for Darwin letters. Added Lichtman: All I can say about that is: Sex sells.Darwin note, early Apple computer being auctioned HAVANA (AP) The number of Cubans heading to the United States has increased dramatically since the island lifted travel restrictions last year, eliminating a costly exit visa and making it easier for emigrants to return to the island, new U.S. government gures show. With greater access to cash and legal travel documents, the vast majority are avoiding the risky journey by raft across the Florida Straits. Instead, most of the new arrivals are passing through Mexico or ying straight to the U.S. More than 22,000 Cubans showed up on the U.S. borders with Mexico and Canada in the scal year that ended last month. That was nearly double the number in 2012 and almost triple the 2011 gure, according to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol. Changes in Cuban law have made it easier for citizens to travel off the island legally. Reform of property laws now allows Cubans to sell homes and vehicles, helping would-be emigrants pull together the cash needed to buy airline tickets. As a result, the historic pattern of Cuban migration is shifting, with more making the journey by air and then land rather than by rickety rafts. The Cuban government is struggling to grow a dysfunctional centrally planned economy after decades of inefciency and underinvestment. Recent changes intended to encourage entrepreneurism have borne little fruit and many people are seeking opportunities elsewhere. While the number of Cubans trying to reach the United States by sea also grew to nearly 4,000 people this past year, the biggest jump came from people entering the U.S. by land. And those ying to Latin America or straight to the United States generally belong to the more prosperous and well-connected strata of society, accelerating the drain of Cubas highly educated. Many Cubans are using an opportunity offered by Spain in 2008 when it allowed descendants of those exiled during the Spanish Civil War to reclaim Spanish citizenship. A Spanish passport allows visa-free travel to the U.S., Europe and Latin America. The number of Cubans holding a Spanish passport tripled between 2009 and 2011, when it hit 108,000. Many of those Cubans y to Mexico or the U.S. on their Spanish passports, then present their Cuban passports to U.S. ofcials. Thousands of other travelers make their rst stop in Ecuador, which dropped a visa requirement for all tourists in 2008. The number of Cubans heading to Ecuador hit 18,078 a year by 2012, the latest year for which statistics are available. From there, many hopscotch north by plane, train, boat or bus through Colombia, Central America and Mexico.Cuban migration surges over land and by sea

There are a lot of double takes. Its like a little action gure of myself, the Los Angeles native said. He had the statue made on a lark. While waiting for his brother at a mall, he stepped into a studio that scanned his body and sent the scan off to a 3-D printer. These studios are popping up rapidly as 3-D scanning and printing technology gets more advanced. In New York City alone, there are at least four stores that offer the service, including three just in the past year. You can get scanned in just a few seconds and get your statue delivered in days. The advent of digital cameras and smartphones killed the traditional mall portrait studio, but 3-D printing has sparked a new trend. Overloaded with digital photos, statues may be moving in to fulll our desire for portraits that stand out. Many of the customers of the statue studios are parents who want statues of their kids. Sylvain Preumont, who opened a New York branch of his London-based iMakr store this year, said a soldiers wife had their three children scanned so he could bring them to Afghanistan. Victor De Los Angeles, owner of New York 3-D printing and scanning store Cubo, has scanned several pregnant women. New Yorks Museum of Art and Design offered scans and statues earlier this year. Shapeways, the company that supplied the exhibit, said it scanned about 6,000 people and sold about 1,500 statues for $30. Woody Allen got himself scanned there, so its now possible to buy a 3.5-inch statue of a slumping Woody Allen in a cardigan. The Smithsonian Institution scanned President Barack Obama and revealed a 3-D printed bust of him this summer. It will be added to the National Portrait Gallery. Big businesses are getting into 3-D statuary as well, with Walmart Stores Inc. at the forefront. In July, at a newly opened Sams Club in Montgomery, Ill., and another outside Fort Worth, Texas, 3-D printers scanned shoppers faces and placed resin printouts of their heads on action gure-sized bodies of one of three Marvel characters. Walmarts British unit, ASDA, starting testing a service in November that lets customers buy 8-inch gurines of themselves for 60 pounds, or $100.

Administrator Gina McCarthy joined Democratic U.S. Sens. Bill Nelson and Sheldon Whitehouse in a bay front neighborhood that in recent years frequently was flooded by seasonal high tides, with water rising up through aging infrastructure to swamp streets and businesses even if it wasnt raining. Miami Beach expects to spend up to $400 million over five years to add about 60 new storm water pumps across the city to improve drainage and reduce the flooding. A few of those pumps already are operational, and streets were dry Thursday even as the extreme high tides were expected to peak. How are we going to pump our way out of this challenge if we dont start now to take action to mitigate the release of carbon pollution emissions, which is fueling this changing climate? We are not going to be able to make this money worthwhile and protect us in the long run if we dont take the bold action theyve taken here to actually adapt and become resilient to protect the communities in the short term, McCarthy said. The federal government is proposing that Florida cut its carbon dioxide emissions from power plants by 38 percent by the year 2030, as part of the Obama administrations effort to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants nationwide by nearly a third over the next 15 years. The low-lying Miami area is not unique in its vulnerability to the effects of climate change or in its desire to make adaptations now, McCarthy said. Whitehouse, of Rhode Island, agreed, noting that 10 inches of sea level rise has been documented at the naval station in Newport since the 1930s. We have the same problem that Florida has, he said. That 10 inches isnt going away. Earlier Thursday in Doral, McCarthy touted her agencys resources for ghting pollution and promoting public health at an American Bar Association conference on environmental law.EPA head lauds community investments in mitigation AP PHOTOPublic magnet school students from MAST @ FIU Biscayne Bay Campus check the salinity of seawater from Biscayne Bay while collecting a control sample, Thursday, in Miami Beach. | STATE NEWS BRIEFSLibertarian Wyllie sues to join Oct. 15 debateFORT LAUDERDALE (AP) Libertarian Party candidate Adrian Wyllie led a federal lawsuit Thursday seeking to join the Oct. 15 Florida gubernatorial debate. Wyllie claims that his rights are being infringed upon because of a rule requiring participants to show at least 15 percent support in a reputable independent opinion poll. Wyllie says the rule he understood was 12 percent including any poll margin of error although the 15 percent gure has been in place since at least August 2013. The Adrian Wyllie campaign is serious in every sense of the word, and is entitled to participate fully in the electoral process, on an equal footing with the Republican and Democrat candidates for governor, the lawsuit says. The lawsuit, led in federal court in Fort Lauderdale, names as defendants debate organizers Leadership Florida and the Florida Press Association. It also names Broward College, site of the Oct. 15 debate currently between Republican Gov. Rick Scott and Democratic challenger Charlie Crist. The organizations did not le an immediate response Thursday, but had previously ruled Wyllie out of the debate because he did not meet the 15 percent polling threshold as of Sept. 30. Wyllie also failed to reach the 12 percent polling gure for a separate July candidates forum sponsored in part by the press association. The dispute is now before U.S. District Judge James Cohn. Scott and Crist have their rst debate Friday at a Miramar television station, also without Wyllie. A third debate is set Oct. 21 in Jacksonville.Florida couple sentenced in sons kidnappingTAMPA (AP) A Florida engineer accused of abducting his two young sons and sailing with them to Cuba was sentenced Thursday to 15 years in prison. Joshua Hakken and his wife, Sharyn, were both sentenced in Hillsborough County Court. Sharyn was sentenced to seven years, with credit for nearly two years already served, plus 10 years probation. Authorities say the couple kidnapped their two young sons from Sharyn Hakkens parents in April after they lost custody following run-ins with police. The Hakkens sailed to Cuba, where they were apprehended by U.S. authorities and sent back to Tampa. The grandpar ents now have custody. Before he was sentenced, Hakken gave a lengthy statement to the court. He called himself a prophet and warned that end times are near. I know Im sane, he said. The world is mad right now. Under agreements with the prosecution, Sharyn Hakken faced up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of kidnapping; Joshua Hakken faced up to 15 years behind bars after pleading guilty to the kidnapping charges, as well as burglary of a dwelling with assault or battery and grand theft auto. He was also given 15 years of probation. Had they been convicted, the couple could have faced life in prison. Joshua Hakken spoke at length, reading from notes, The Tampa Tribune reported. I am here to warn humankind that the end of times is upon the world, he said. Sharyn Hakken, who was diagnosed as having severe depression and who cut herself as a teenager, apologized profusely for her actions, and said shes now free of her husbands delusions.Florida good Samaritans lift car off 19-year-oldPENSACOLA (AP) Several good Samaritans helped save a 19-year-old girl who was trapped under her car following a crash in the Florida Panhandle. Florida Highway Patrol ofcials say Kayla Lynn Sapp was driving near Eglin Air Force Base on Wednesday when her rear tire blew out, causing the vehicle to ip. Sapp was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle. The overturned car landed on her, trapping her underneath. Several passers-by stopped to lift the vehicle off Sapp. She was airlifted to a hospital with serious injuries. The Pensacola News Journal reports her passenger, 38-year-old Dana Mithele Sapp, was also hospitalized with serious injuries.DCF didnt fully vet foster dad charged with deathPORT ST. LUCIE (AP) The Florida Department of Children and Families may not have fully vetted a Port St. Lucie foster parent charged with murdering a 2-year-old boy in his care. The Miami Herald reported Thursday that DCF issued Michael Beer his foster care license last year even though 20 years earlier he had failed to aid a 2-year-old girl who suffered broken bones from child abuse. The newspaper says that when DCF discovered its oversight this year, it still renewed Beers license. Beer was arrested last week on charges that he murdered Trysten Adams by beating him to death. Trysten had been under the care of Beer and his wife since July. DCF ofcials said its private contractors had the lead role in interviewing and obtaining background information on potential foster families.

But it might work out that way. With unbeaten Fort Myers coming to Tarpon Stadium next week, it will do Charlotte some good to see some speed this week. Well see (speed), Waldrop said. They can go and they can really get athletes. And you know those kids down there are tough as nails, too. But American coach Anthony White wants his team to be more than an appetizer. As it is, the Patriots (4-1) have been to the postseason for the last three years. Their only loss this season came against defending Class 8A state champ South Dade. Am I pleased? White asked. Well, as a head coach, youre never satised. Im OK with how weve done so far. Could we be better? Yes. But right now, thats OK. Im pretty pleased with the effort. The Patriots come to Punta Gorda tonight with quarter back Josh Cartwright having sustained a knee injury last Thursday in a 25-6 rout over Miami Lakes. Cartwright has passed for 510 yards with six touchdowns and an interception this season. He has a good feel for the pocket and doesnt force bad passes. White was non-committal on Cartwrights status for tonight. Its still up in the air, he said on Wednesday. Were trying to see whats going on with it. Well know more in the next couple of days. But when asked about his importance to the team, he noted that Cartwright was just as important as anyone else. That ts with an American philosophy that goes with an ensemble effort running the ball. Four different players ran for touchdowns in the Patriots 50-0 victory over Westland.

The coach postponed his comments to the rest of the world until Wednesday, and even then suggested it felt a little soon to be talking about football under these serious circumstances. The world keeps spinning, though, outside Muschamps not-so-secure location, and right now its spinning like a buzzsaw. LSU will be in the Swamp on Saturday night, for openers. Regardless of the Tigers miserable performance in a 41-7 loss to Auburn last week, that always means trouble. In 10 years as LSU coach, Les Miles has lost consecutive games exactly once, and it happened in 2008. Also, theres the task of trying to convince every body that Jeff Driskel isnt such a terrible option at quarterback. This will take some doing, considering nothing good happened for the Florida offense in last weeks 10-9 win at Tennessee until Harris took over the huddle.

Matt Carpenter, whose bases-loaded double off Clayton Kershaw propelled St. Louis to victory in its NL Division Series opener, was a 13th-round draft pick signed for $1,000 ve years ago. Kolten Wong, who hit the tiebreaking, two-run homer for the Cardinals in Game 3 against the Dodgers, was a rst-round selection in 2011 with a $1.3 million signing bonus. And Matt Adams, whose three-run homer in Game 4 on Tuesday put St. Louis in the NL Championship Series for the fourth straight year, cost just $25,000 to sign when the Cardinals drafted him in the 23rd round in 2009 the 699th pick overall.

The Charlotte High School graduate was sidelined nine and a half months after tearing a tendon in her right foot. She underwent surgery in December after weeks of rest did not provide relief. For eight and a half months, pretty much I was wearing a boot, she said. It denitely still hurts. Im playing through the pain. She is playing for the University of West Florida after competing for Daytona State College as a freshman. She attended State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota during the spring semester because she couldnt play and wanted to maintain her remaining three years of golf eligibility. She started emailing coaches in the spring to learn which ones were interested in her and found a t at West Florida. To prepare for West Florida, she practiced a lot and played in three tournaments during the summer. She tied for 14th in the Womens Amateur Stroke Play Championship during July in Vero Beach. She shot a 226 (80-72-74). Her nal summer event was representing Florida in the Womens Southeastern Challenge Match, a two-day biennial event held this year in Georgia. She was selected from a list compiled by the state association. The 12-women squad had eight amateurs, including Lamm, and four senior amateurs. Florida defeated Alabama and Georgia to win for the second time. I played OK, Lamm said. I could have played better. By the time of West Floridas rst event in September, she was ready. She led the team at the Smoky Mountain Intercollegiate, tying for fourth overall with a 149 (73-76). I wasnt surprised. I knew I could do it, Lamm said. I needed to come back strong after not playing nine and a half months. Lamm didnt have the same success her next event, the Yale Intercollegiate. She carded a 246 (85-79-82). She tied for 71st and was fth among the Argonauts. Through two tournaments, she was fth on the team with a 79.00 scoring average and was second in birdies. But her bogeys and double bogeys per round ranked in the bottom half among the seven women in the rotation. My short game is really not where it should be, she said. Im just not putting well. Its something I have to work on. Lamm said she has to manage with the foot as it is, so she continues to stretch and ice it as necessary. She also wears a certain type of golf shoes when playing.Former Tarpon golfer finds new homeBy BARBARA BOXLEITNERSUN CORRESPONDENT AWAY AT COLLEGE: Lauren LammLamm playing at UWF after recovering from foot injury | COMMUNITY CALENDARBASEBALLNorth Port Little League: Tryouts for the Lightning, a 12U travel team; Sunday, 10 a.m. at Atwater Community Park.

Andres Gonzales is back on the PGA Tour and took the rst of many steps toward his goal. He wants to stay there this time. Gonzales birdied his last two holes Thursday at Silverado Resort for a 6-under 66 and tied for the lead with Sang-Moon Bae at the season-opening Frys.com Open. Silverado has not hosted a PGA Tour event since 1980. Gonzalez nished 11th on the Web.com Tour last year to earn his card for a third time. He has yet to nish among the top 125 to keep it. The new season felt like an old one to a trio of Ryder Cup players. Hunter Mahan (70), Matt Kuchar (71) and Jimmy Walker (75) played in the same group just 10 days after the Ryder Cup. Top-ranked Lewis leads Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia: In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, No. 1-ranked Stacy Lewis of the United States shot a 6-under 65 to take a one-stroke lead at the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia, the second event of the tours six-tournament Asian swing. Lewis birdied the par-5 16th hole to break away from a tight leaderboard at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club. Tied for second with 66s were the South Korean quartet of Na Yeon Choi, Hee Young Park, Eun Hee Ji and So Yeon Ryu. Amy Yang of South Korea and Chinas Shanshan Feng were among a group tied for sixth after 67s. Natalie Gulbis shot 69, Karrie Webb 70 while American Lexi Thompson who won by four strokes here last year shot 71. Paula Creamer had a 75. Colsaerts nearly shoots 59 at Portugal Masters: In Vilamoura, Portugal, Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium shot a brilliant 11-under 60 to take a three-shot lead of the Portugal Masters in the opening round. Colsaerts came close to setting a European Tour record of 59 when his birdie putt missed on the par-4 18th hole. I thought it was going to be slightly left to right at the end and it kind of went straight and basically just left it hanging, Colsaerts said. Too bad, it was a pretty good effort. Colsaerts made eagles on the 15th and 17th after hitting seven birdies through a near flawless first day at the Oceanico Victoria Golf Club.Gonzalez shares Frys.com lead GOLF ROUNDUPTop-ranked Lewis shoots 6-under 65 for LPGA leadBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AUTO RACING ROUNDUPBusch earns poll in CharlotteCONCORD, N.C. Kyle Busch has won the pole for Saturday nights race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, where Joe Gibbs Racing could surge into the championship race. Busch qualied rst for JGR with a lap at 197.390 mph in Thursday qualifying to put his Toyota in the top starting spot. Jeff Gordon failed to bump Busch for the pole, turning a lap at 197.217 for Hendrick Motorsports. Gibbs driver Denny Hamlin qualied third. Five drivers racing for the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship failed to advance to the nal round of qualifying. Neither Joey Logano or Brad Keselowski advanced, and Keselowski needs a strong run to avoid elimination. Also off in qualifying was six-time and defending NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson, who is ranked last in the 12-driver Chase eld. Earnhardt Jr. turns 40: The blown tire while he was leading at Kansas is long forgotten. Dale Earnhardt Jr. is celebrating his 40th birthday on Friday and the milestone has turned into a weeklong celebration. It kicked off Monday when longtime girlfriend Amy Reimann successfully pulled off a surprise party that NASCARs most popular driver never saw coming. He has visited with close friends and family, received terrific gifts and showed up at Charlotte Motor Speedway ready to win a race. Earnhardt badly needs a victory Saturday night: His 39th-place finish at Kansas put him in danger of being eliminated from the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. A victory earns an automatic berth into the third round and next weeks race is at the unpredictable Talladega Superspeedway. Patrick discusses love life with Stenhouse: Danica Patrick admits there are some occupational hazards to dating a fellow NASCAR driver. In her first column for Derek Jeters new website, called The Players Tribune, Patrick said racing against boyfriend Ricky Stenhouse Jr. can create Montagues and the Capulets moments, a reference to the feuding families in Shakespeares Romeo and Juliet. Patrick and Stenhouse went public with their relationship in early 2013 and have had only a handful of scrapes on the track. In her column posted Thursday, Patrick says they get over them quickly. She says it helps that Stenhouse is extremely cuddly.BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS | AUTO RACING SCOREBOARDSprint Cup SeriesBANK OF AMERICA 500 LINEUP After Thursday qualifying; race Saturday At Charlotte Motor Speedway Concord, N.C.

The Sun /Friday, October 10, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 ATHENS, Ga. Georgia star tailback Todd Gurley has been suspended indenitely while the school investigates an alleged violation of NCAA rules. The school made the announcement Thursday, two days before the No. 13 Bulldogs (4-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) face No. 23 Missouri (4-1, 1-0) in a crucial Eastern Division game. Georgia ofcials did not reveal the alleged violation. Coach Mark Richt said he is very disappointed by the suspension. He added that the important thing for our team is to turn all our attention toward preparation for Missouri. Gurley is considered one of the leading contenders for the Heisman Trophy. He leads Georgia with 773 yards rushing and eight touchdowns. In addition, he has 11 receptions and a 100-yard kickoff return for a TD. Harris attorney claims he did nothing wrong: The attorney for suspended Florida quarterback Treon Harris said misstatements in the media have painted a picture that is inconsistent with the evidence. Authorities are investigating sexual assault allegations that have been made against Harris. His attorney, Huntley Johnson, is trying to dispel reports about Harris relationship with the woman and what happened early Sunday at an on-campus residence hall. Johnson released a detailed statement defending his client Thursday, saying the woman showed no indication of any physical or mental trauma after the alleged sexual assault. Johnson said, We believe the evidence will show the alleged victim was in fact in the sexual aggressor with not one, but two young men early last Sunday morning. Bulldogs AD wants fans to heed cowbell rules: Mississippi State athletic director Scott Stricklin wants the schools fans to practice proper cowbell etiquette when the No. 3 Bulldogs host No. 2 Auburn on Saturday at Davis Wade Stadium. Mississippi State fans have long brought cowbells to games, even when they were deemed illegal noisemakers. The Southeastern Conference approved the cowbells in 2010, provided they are not used when the opposing team is trying to run offensive plays. Stricklin posted a note on the schools athletic website on Wednesday criticizing the or so percent of fans who continue to ignore the rules on cowbell etiquette. UNC to keep rotating QBs: North Carolina has one quarterback who is leading the team in rushing, another with less experience and shaky confidence, and an offense that has been inconsistent through the first five games. And yet, the Tar Heels are sticking with their weekly plan to play both heading into No. 6 Notre Dame on Saturday. Receiver Ryan Switzer said the rotation doesnt have any effect on the other players, while coach Larry Fedora has said its not the reason the Tar Heels havent played consistently on offense. Attorney suggests more Vanderbilt players involved in crime: An attorney for a former Vanderbilt University football player charged with raping a fellow student suggested in court that two other former players committed similar acts but are not being prosecuted. Defense attorney Albert Perez Jr. raised the allegation during a Thursday hearing. Perez later told reporters he believes Jaborian Tip McKenzie and Brandon Banks were involved in sexual conduct with drunk underage females on June 22, 2013. Perezs client, Brandon Vandenburg, is accused of rape the next day. Hookem Horns creator dies: Harley Clark, the former Texas cheerleader credited with introducing the Hookem Horns hand signal used by tens of thousands of Longhorns faithful over the past six decades, died Thursday at his farm outside of Austin, school officials said. He was 78. The school didnt release details or a cause of death for Clark, who watched his hand sign become one of the most recognizable and familiar signs of support in college athletics. Clark introduced the hand sign the index and pinky fingers extended and the two middle fingers tucked under the thumb at a 1955 pep rally. It quickly caught on and became a universal symbol for the school and its athletic teams.Georgia star RB suspended COLLEGE FOOTBALL NOTEBOOKBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSAP PHOTOGeorgia running back Todd Gurley (3) hurdles a Tennessee defender duing a game last month. Gurley, thought to be a Heisman Trophy candidate, was supsended indenitely for an alleged rules violation on Thursday. Vols after three quarters of Driskel drudgery, they were in danger, too, of snapping a streak of 326 consecutive games without being shut out. Thats the longest active streak in the nation and the third-longest in major college history. Maybe its revisionist spin, but Muschamp said Wednesday that he still hadnt decided whether to start or sit Driskel until the toxic Harris headlines hit home. Wouldnt doubt it, really. This coach doesnt have much of a feel for offense, and even less of a taste for trusting a player he doesnt know all that well to lead the Gators huddle. If anything, the sudden collapse of certainty about Harris, who is suspended indefinitely, will solidify that cautious approach. Meanwhile, theres the question of who will back up Driskel on Saturday, and possibly for the rest of the season. Will Grier is the name to know here. A true freshman, Grier is sharing second-unit snaps with Skyler Mornhinweg this week, but heres an even better clue on the kids expedited status. Muschamp said Wednesday that the Gators previously were headed toward redshirting Grier this season but certainly, given the situation, obviously not. We hesitate to mention that Grier was the Maxwell Football Club National High School Player of the Year back home in North Carolina, but here goes. Driskel earlier won that award, too. Now we move to the exchange of knuckle sandwiches between a couple of Florida players Monday night, with one of them being Mornhinweg. Muschamp made light of that one, referring to the many boyhood fights he had with his brothers over silly stuff. Mondays dispute supposedly had to do with a pair of cleats that defensive lineman Gerald Willis borrowed because he couldnt find his own. There will be no discipline handed out to the players, in any case, or at least none that Muschamp cared to mention. Doesnt matter. Its not a good look when univer sity police are summoned to take post-practice statements. The Gators, 3-1 in spite of it all, should be bonding like never before in pursuit of a bowlworthy season. Instead, theyve got players fighting over footwear, and the rest of us are just waiting for the other shoe to drop.GATORSFROM PAGE 1 NFL NOTEBOOKPeterson bond could be revokedHOUSTON Texas prosecutors have led a motion to revoke Adrian Petersons bond and have him re-arrested after the Minnesota Vikings running back allegedly admitted to smoking marijuana while he is awaiting trial on a felony child abuse charge. In a motion led Thursday, the Montgomery County District Attorneys Ofce accused Peterson of smoking marijuana while out on bond. He allegedly told a worker conducting his urinalysis exam during a Wednesday court appearance that he smoked a little weed. Not taking any illegal drugs are common terms to adhere to when out on bond. Peterson has been put on paid leave while the case plays out. He has admitted using a wooden switch to discipline his 4-year-old son earlier this year in suburban Houston. Kaepernick fined for wearing wrong headphones: San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick said he was fined $10,000 by the NFL for the pink Beats by Dre brand name headphones he wore around his neck after Sundays game. While Kaepernick has an endorsement deal with Beats and has done a commercial, the leagues contract is with Bose. Wearing the pink version for October breast cancer awareness month, Kaepernick knew he could be subject to a fine after the 22-17 win Sunday. Teen with laser pointer banned from Lions games: The Detroit Lions barred a teenager from all Ford Field events for using a laser pointer at a game against the Bills. Detroit city attorney Melvin Hollowell identified a 17-year-old from West Bloomfield, Michigan as the one pointing a laser into the eyes of Bills players. Hollowell said the teen will be ticketed for disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor. The teen was using a ticket held by a season-ticket holder, so the Lions are revoking that persons tickets for the rest of the season. Shorts practicing again for Jaguars: Jacksonville receiver Cecil Shorts III returned to practice after missing more than a week with a nagging hamstring injury. Shorts fully participated, working in individual and team drills for the first time since he reinjured his left hamstring Sept. 28 at San Diego. Rivera says Newton will get new contract: Coach Ron Rivera said the Panthers remain committed to Cam Newton as their franchise quarterback, even though theyve not yet signed the former No. 1 overall draft pick to a long-term contract extension. Rivera expects that will happen in due time. Veteran Titans lineman hurt: Tennessee left tackle Michael Roos, who has played more games than any other offensive lineman since 2005, will have surgery to repair his right knee and may have played his final game with the Titans.BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS TAMPA Since their last home game, the Bucs have been to Atlanta, to Pittsburgh and to New Orleans, a rough threeweek stretch that has seen the defense give up 117 points. Almost as well-traveled in that span is the special Bucs helmet with a green dot on the back, designating which defensive player hears the play call from coaches and must line up his teammates correctly in the precious seconds before a snap. Its a big deal, defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier said Thursday, addressing several changes on his defense. For us, the signal-caller is really our quarterback on defense. Hes the guy that kind of controls the huddle and gets everybody lined up and everybody playing the same defense. Three linebackers have worn that helmet and handled those duties in the past four games. Middle linebacker Mason Foster had the opening two games, two close home losses, and after he injured his shoulder, his replacement, Dane Fletcher, took over. After two games and a combined 80 points, the Bucs turned last week to weakside linebacker Lavonte David, who had those duties for the Bucs the previous two seasons. And while the Bucs gave up 37 points and 500-plus yards in a 37-31 loss to the Saints with David relaying the call, there was encouraging progress from the Bucs defense. After one interception in the rst four games, there were three Sunday, and much more activity breaking up passes in the secondary. How important is being lined up properly? Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy said an experienced quarterback like Baltimores Joe Flacco can take advantage in a hurry. He pointed to the Saints Drew Brees, who improvised a quick snap on his rst third down Sunday, catching the defense unprepared and nearly connecting on a deep pass. Nobody was even set. We were all standing up. Flacco will do the same thing, McCoy said. We have to be aligned. When youve got your feet set, its easy to play fast. You have to wait on the call. Theyre working on it. McCoy said the transition back to David has been a good one, with progress in two practices this week. Foster may return to the eld Sunday after missing three games, but it appears David will still continue to set up the defense. Coach Lovie Smith traditionally had his middle or Mike linebacker calling the defense, which is why Foster held that role, as he had for the Bucs as a rookie in 2011 before David arrived. Frazier said using an outside linebacker wasnt the plan, but is their best option now with David.By GREG AUMANTAMPA BAY TIMES NFL: Tampa BayBucs D sees progress with linebacker calling shotsDavids green dot AP PHOTOTampa Bay Buccaneers outside linebacker Lavonte David (54) and defensive tackle Gerald McCoy (93) pressure Carolina Panthers quarterback Derek Anderson (3) during a game earlier this year.

ORLANDO Justin Holman threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to running back William Stanback on the rst possession of overtime and UCF beat BYU 31-24 on Thursday night after overcoming a 14-point decit in the second half. Christian Stewarts fourth-down pass for BYU fell incomplete in the end zone to end the game. Stanback added a rushing touchdown. Holman was 30 of 51 for a career-high 326 yards and threw two scoring passes. In his rst start, Stewart struggled early, but recovered to go 22 for 37 for 153 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. The Knights (3-2) took an early rst-half lead before falling into a 24-10 hole in the third quarter. BYU (4-2) scored 21 straight points to take a 24-10 lead early in the third quarter.

MATCHUPS These teams have dominated the National League this decade, combining for the past four pennants and three World Series titles. The Giants won it all in 2010 and 2012, and the Cardinals won the World Series in 2011 before losing to Boston last season. ... St. Louis leads the majors with 30 postseason wins over the past five seasons, while San Francisco is second with 26. ... This is the fourth NLCS meeting between these teams, with the Cardinals winning in seven games in 1987 and the Giants taking a fivegame series in 2002 and a seven-gamer in 2012. San Francisco rallied from 3-1 down two years ago, outscoring St. Louis 20-1 over the final three games to spoil the Cardinals bid for a repeat title under first-year manager Mike Matheny. The Giants have six regulars, two starters and five relievers still on the roster from that series. ... Posey and Pence struggled in the 2012 NLCS. Posey hit .154 with no extra-base hits and Pence batted .179. Vogelsong won both his starts, allowing two runs in 14 innings. WATCH FOR Time Warp: Working on 10 days rest, Wainwright threw up a dud in the Division Series opener when he was tagged for six runs and 11 hits in 4 innings at Dodger Stadium. Theres some concern that he didnt have much life on his pitches in that game, perhaps a result of fatigue from being such a reliable innings-eater all year. Wainwright will have seven days off before facing Bumgarner in Game 1. Leadoff Loss: The Giants miss Angel Pagans bat at the top of the lineup. He batted .304 from the leadoff spot this season, fifth-highest in the majors. Blanco has struggled in his place, going 2 for 22 in the playoffs and batting just .213 from the No. 1 spot in the regular season, the second-lowest mark in the big leagues. Power Surge: After totaling a paltry 105 homers this season, secondfewest in the majors ahead of only Kansas City, the Cardinals finally flexed their muscles in the Division Series. They belted seven homers in four games, including five by left-handed hitters off Dodgers lefties. Carpenter, who had eight homers in the regular season, joined Albert Pujols (2004) as the only Cardinals players to homer in three consecutive postseason games. Carpenter made the most of his six hits, totaling seven RBIs. Associated PressOrioles reward HardyFROM WIRE REPORTSBALTIMORE J.J. Hardy signed a $40 million, three-year contract with the Orioles on Thursday night, the eve of Baltimores rst appearance in the AL Championship Series since 1997. The contract, which comes with an option for 2018, goes into effect after his current deal expires at the end of this season. Executive vice president Dan Duquette gured there was no time like the present to lock up a twotime Gold Glove winner at a key ineld position. Hardy has been a xture at shortstop for the Orioles since 2011, playing solid defense and providing decent hitting in a lineup lled with sluggers. Although he hit only nine homers this season, Hardy totaled 77 long balls over the previous three years and won Gold Gloves in 2012 and 2013. Free agency was tempting, but in the end Hardy wanted to stay with the Orioles. It crossed my mind, but at the same time this is where I wanted to be, he said. Theres a lot of uncertainty in free agency. You dont know whats going to happen. I knew that I liked it here and I liked playing with all my teammates. Bottom line, it comes down to winning and I think weve got a good thing here. The 32-year-old Hardy batted .268 with 52 RBIs in 141 games during the regular season, then went 3 for 10 in Baltimores three-game sweep of Detroit in the AL Division Series. ... Suspended first baseman Chris Davis took batting practice with the Orioles at Camden Yards a day ahead of the ALCS opener against the Kansas City Royals. But Davis, who has five games remaining on a 25-game suspension for violating Major League Baseballs drug policy, will not be added to the ALCS roster, manager Buck Showalter said. In order to include Davis on the roster, the Orioles would have had to play shorthanded until the suspension ends. Mattingly to become father again: Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is expanding his lineup during the offseason, when he will become a father for the fourth time. Mattingly said that he and his wife, Lori, are expecting their first child together in December. The couple married nearly four years ago in his hometown of Evansville, Ind., where they live in the offseason. The 53-year-old manager has three grown sons from his first marriage. Mattingly says the new baby is a boy. Cubs hire Mallee as hitting coach: The Chicago Cubs hired John Mallee as their hitting coach after Bill Mueller resigned this week. The Cubs also hired Doug Dascenzo as first base and outfield coach, with Eric Hinske shifting from that job to assistant hitting coach. Mallee, a Chicago native, served as the hitting coach for the Miami Marlins (2010-11) and Houston Astros (201314). The Astros finished last in the American League with a .242 average but were third in homers with 163. Around the League: St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said rumors that Adam Wainwright is hurt are overblown. Matheny is sticking with the same rotation that clicked in the first round, and Wainwright, the 20-game winner, is set to pitch Game 1 of the National League Championship Series against the San Francisco Giants. ... Gerry Davis is going to be the crew chief for the NL Championship Series and Joe West is heading the umpires for the ALCS, each reprising the role they held last postseason.

The surprising Kansas City Royals and unappable Baltimore Orioles are extremely similar with one signicant exception: the fashion in which they score runs. The team that best utilizes its standard method of offense will likely win the best-ofseven AL Championship Series, which begins tonight. Get ready for small ball versus long ball. Back in April, few could have predicted these two teams would be the last standing in the American League. But the fashion in which they got here with stunningly easy sweeps in the Division Series makes this matchup intriguing. Even more interesting is their contrasting styles. The Royals love to take an extra base, whether its turning a single into a double or stealing their way into scoring position. Kansas City led the majors with 153 stolen bases during the regular season then, with blazing-fast rookie Terrance Gore, added seven in a wild-card win over Oakland and ve more in a three-game wipeout of the top-seeded Los Angeles Angels. Speed. Thats what we do, designated hitter Billy Butler said. Obviously you have to be smart about it, but were a very aggressive team. When our speed guys get on they like to go. Thats what got us to this point that, and pitching and defense. The Orioles, like the Royals, feature a solid starting rotation, an effective bullpen and strong defense. But Baltimore prefers to take a more leisurely trip around the bases. Although Baltimore nished dead last in the majors with 44 stolen bases, it led the majors with 211 home runs. Nelson Cruz had 40 of them, only 55 fewer than the Royals hit while nishing last in the big leagues as the only team that didnt hit 100. And so, the lines are drawn. Whichever pitching staff can stie the oppositions preferred method of offense will likely be working in the World Series. Obviously, well be asked to keep the Orioles in check in terms of their power and the big inning, said Royals right-hander Jeremy Guthrie, who pitched for Baltimore from 2007-11. On the ip side, the Orioles pitchers will be asked to try and keep our guys off base and not allow us to string together a couple of hits to get us runs. Its really that simple. The best way to keep them from stealing is to keep them off the bases. Thats our rst goal, Baltimore reliever Tommy Hunter said. Im not too worried about it. You know theyre fast, you know they run. Hopefully they run into outs.By DAVID GINSBURGASSOCIATED PRESSAP PHOTOBaltimores Nelson Cruz gestures after hitting a two-run home in the AL Division Series. While the Orioles led the majors with 211 homers and relies mainly on their power, their AL Championship Series opponent, Kansas City, likes to use its speed. within in the free-agent era, St. Louis topped the 10 postseason teams with 17 homegrown players on its 25-man division-series roster, according to STATS. The total cost of those initial contracts: $13,082,500. Thats just more than half the $23 million the Los Angeles Angels are paying Albert Pujols, the three-time NL MVP who left the Cardinals after the 2011 World Series title for the riches of southern California. Thats something we as an organization take a lot of pride in, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said, when you see how many of these kids came up through and are contributing, not just making it here, but thriving at this level and helping us to be able to walk in there and pop champagne. Among the postseason teams, Kansas City is second with 13 homegrown players, followed by San Francisco (12), the Angels (11), Washington and the Dodgers (10 each), Pittsburgh (nine), Baltimore and Detroit (seven each) and Oakland (one) pitcher Sean Doolittle. While baseballs biggest spenders already are home, the nal four teams rank sixth in payroll (San Francisco), 11th (St. Louis), 14th (Baltimore) and 19th (Kansas City). Baseballs collective bargaining system rewards teams that made good scouting decisions on young players, whose salaries are a fraction of what veteran stars earn. We have to use our farm system, obviously, in a variety of ways, not only to transition championship players to the major leagues, but we have to use it to acquire talent, Royals general manager Dayton Moore said. A swap brought Kansas City ace James Shields, who will start the ALCS opener against the Orioles. The Royals paid a hefty price, sending Wil Myers to Tampa in the 2012 offseason Myers was last years AL Rookie of the Year. Like the Cardinals, Kansas City had three homegrown players drive in the go-ahead runs in the Division Series all former high rst-round draft picks who have all struggled to live up to their hype: Mike Moustakas ($4 million as second overall in 2007), Eric Hosmer ($6 million as third overall in 2008) and Alex Gordon ($4 million as second overall in 2005). Ten of Kansas Citys players were acquired in the June draft of high school and college play ers who reside in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, and three were signed as amateur free agents. Fifteen Cardinals were obtained in the June draft and two as amateur free agents. Five more were acquired in trades and just three signed as major league free agents: shortstop Jhonny Peralta and pitchers Randy Choate and Pat Neshek. And while Peralta was given a $53 million, four-year contract last offseason, Choate is in the middle of a $7.5 million, three-year deal. Neshek signed a minor league contract just before spring training, earned a $1 million salary after making the big league team and became a rst-time All-Star. They joined a core of players who have known each other for several years. I think it does start in the minor leagues, Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha said. Every single minor leaguer, theyre kind of preached on that whenever you get up to St. Louis, youre expected to win. John Mozeliak was hired by the Cardinals scouting department after the 1995 season, kept gaining promotions and became general manager in October 2007. His current roster includes ve rst-round draft picks none higher than the 19th selection because St. Louis has had a winning record during each year of his tenure.CARDSFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOKansas Citys Mike Moustakas (8) was one of the Royals three homegrown players to drive in go-ahead runs in the AL Division Series.

(AP) Now that the Power Five conferences have their autonomy, NCAA President Mark Emmert has a wish list hed like them to tackle right away. Emmert, speaking after a lecture at Western Connecticut State University, said Wednesday he would like the conferences to make sure the entire cost of attending school is covered by athletic scholarships. He said hed also like the Power 5 to extend the length of scholarships to allow students to come back and nish their degrees, provide insur ance to cover all medical expenses for athletes and relax the rules governing contact with agents. Emmert said he also would like to see the conferences immediately change the rules dealing with concussions. He said every team should be required to have a medical professional on the sidelines and responsible for implementing concussion protocols. He said there also needs to be more clearly dened accountability if those protocols are not followed.SOCCERKlinsmann thinks Donovan couldve done more: Landon Donovan set U.S. national team and Major League Soccer records for goals and assists, scored in a signature stoppage-time moment that lifted America to a first-place finish in a World Cup group for the first time in 80 years and won five MLS titles with a sixth still possible. Jurgen Klinsmann was hoping for more. I think it could have gone even further than that, the U.S. coach said Thursday, a day before Donovan plays his 157th and final match for the national team in an exhibition against Ecuador. Midfielder Julian Green will miss the United States exhibition games against Ecuador and Honduras because of a rib injury. The 19-year-old trained with the Americans in Boston on Tuesday and Wednesday, but U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann decided Green should return to Hamburg to recover from the injury, sustained Sept. 20 against Bayern Munich. Defending champion Spain lost a qualifying game for the first time in eight years, falling 2-1 at Slovakia in Group C for its first loss in a qualifier for the European Championship or World Cup since 2006.BASKETBALLPistons top Bucks in preseason game: In Auburn Hills, Mich., Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 20 points, Andre Drummond added 15 points and 16 rebounds and Detroit beat Milwaukee 94-80 in an NBA preseason game.

The Memphis Grizzlies waived forward Michael Beasley, who had signed a non-guaranteed contract with the team last month.BOXINGMayweathers father claims his son will fight Pacquiao: The fight that the boxing world has been waiting to see for years will finally take place in 2015.

LOUIS Rick Nash had two goals and an assist, including the tiebreaking score late in the third period, and the New York Rangers beat the St. Louis Blues 3-2 Thursday night in the rst game of the season for both teams. Chris Kreider had a goal and an assist for the Eastern Conference champions, and Henrik Lundqvist made 23 saves. Jaden Schwartz led the Blues with a goal and an assist. Paul Stastny also scored, and Brian Elliott stopped 22 shots. After a fortunate carom off the glass, Nash scored the go-ahead goal with 1:50 remaining off a behind-the-back pass from Martin St. Louis in front of the net. New York opened the scoring 4:01 into the rst period on Nashs low shot from the slot off a Blues turnover in the defensive zone. Kreider was credited with the assist. Red Wings 2, Bruins 1: In Detroit, Gustav Nyquists power-play goal in the second period lifted Detroit past Boston in the Red Wings season opener. Justin Abdelkader also scored for Detroit, which lost to the Bruins in the first round of last seasons playoffs. Patrice Bergeron scored Bostons only goal. Jimmy Howard had 16 saves for the Red Wings. Detroit was without star forward Pavel Datsyuk, who is recovering from a separated shoulder. The Red Wings outshot Boston 24-17. The Bruins managed only nine shots on goal through the first two periods. Blue Jackets 3, Sabres 1: In Buffalo, N.Y., Cam Atkinson scored the tiebreaking goal on a third-period power play, and Columbus beat Buffalo in the season opener for both teams.

Canadiens 2, Capitals 1, SO: In Washington, Tomas Plekanec scored his third goal of the young season, and Montreal recovered from a slow start to beat Washington and new coach Barry Trotz. Brendan Gallagher scored the decisive goal in the fifth round of the shootout, which, intriguingly, did not feature Capitals star and three-time NHL MVP Alex Ovechkin until the fourth round. Dustin Tokarski made 29 saves for the Canadiens, getting the start after Carey Price worked the 4-3 win over Toronto on Wednesday. Devils 6, Flyers 4: In Philadelphia, Dainus Zubrus scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and Michael Cammalleri had two goals, leading New Jersey to a seasonopening win against Philadelphia.

Page 6 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, October 10, 2014 One of the biggest things shes noticed from the bench is her teams struggle to close the block, or block incoming spikes at the net because of the way their bodies are turned. She tells them to take away the low angles even if theyre not quite in position. Shes quiet-natured, but she will pull girls over and give them words of advice because she studies the game, Bulldogs coach Laura White said. This is her homework, she takes video home and she analyzes it. Her mom told me she has aspirations of maybe one day being a coach. Right now, Bonville is more concerned with getting back on the court as her nal high school season nears its end. Doctors havent gured out the cause of the persistent sharp pain she experiences every time she takes a step since the rst play of that Lemon Bay match. X-rays dont show a fracture, and tests for a Lisfranc injury where displaced bones in the foot cause pain came back negative. Bonvilles cast will be removed before the Bulldogs compete at Saturdays Gene Gorman Invitational at Charlotte High School, and doctors will check for a fracture again. Bonville, always an optimist when her team is down during a game, hasnt ruled out playing on Saturday if she feels better, but White plans to keep her on the bench for the rest of the regular season no matter what. The reality is I would rather sit her out until shes healthy and use her for districts, White said. We dont really have any other big hitters, so having her in there makes a big difference.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or firstname.lastname@example.org. | TONIGHTS GAMESAMERICAN AT CHARLOTTEWHEN: 7:30 p.m. WHERE: Tarpon Stadium, Charlotte High School, Punta Gorda RECORDS: American 4-1; Charlotte 3-1. LAST WEEK: American defeated Miami Lakes, 25-6; Charlotte defeated Riverdale, 46-21. TALKING POINTS: Patriots quarterback Josh Cartwright is questionable with a knee injury. He has completed 30 of 58 passes for 510 yards with six touchdowns and an interception. American RB Jeremiah Pierce-Johnson has rushed for 326 yards and four TDs, but the Patriots running game is a group effort. Patriots are coming off three straight postseason appearances. Charlotte WR Trevor Laurent had a breakout game last week with 10 catches for 162 yards and a TD. RB Elijah Mack is the lone Tarpon to score in every game. LB Ty Tyler is a disruptive force on the outside. QB Brennan Simms passed for 222 yards and three TDs against Riverdale.CAPE CORAL AT LEMON BAYWHEN: 7 p.m. WHERE: Veterans Stadium, Lemon Bay High School, Englewood RECORDS: Cape Coral 5-1, 2-1 in District 5A-14; Lemon Bay 3-2, 1-1. LAST WEEK: Cape Coral lost to Island Coast, 23-3; Lemon Bay had a bye. TALKING POINTS: With both teams already having lost, this is a pivotal district contest. Seahawks QB Dylan Bontrager likes to throw it around, having passed for 1,234 yards and 11 TDs. Hes also thrown eight interceptions. RBs Jordan Lewis (347 yards, 5 TDs) and Issac Washington (235 yards, 2 TDs) pace the Cape Coral rushing game. Senior Collin Loethen leads the Seahawks with 49 tackles (including 35 solos). Lemon Bay QB Jeremy Snook is the usual starter, but Victor Mellor was solid against Dunbar with 114 rushing yards and two TDs. WR Nic Mostyn is among the area leaders with 14 catches for 202 yards. RB Anthony Marinola has rushed for 434 yards and 7 TDs. He has scored in every Mantas game this season.DESOTO COUNTY AT FROSTPROOFWHEN: 7 p.m. WHERE: Faris Brannan Stadium, 100 3rd St. N., Frostproof RECORDS: DeSoto County 5-0; Frostproof 3-2. LAST WEEK: DeSoto County defeated Bayshore, 41-3; Frostproof lost to Tampa Catholic, 27-0. TALKING POINTS: DeSoto Countys 5-0 start is its best since 2007 when the Bulldogs went 9-0 in the regular season. QB Reggie Jones will miss the game with a sprained knee. Taking over behind center will be Tajahs Jackson, Niron Washington or Tony Lee. Zack Beeles is DeSoto Countys best runner apart from Jones with 276 yards and 4 TDs this season. DT Deionte Turner has taken a big step forward this season. After opening the season allowing seven points in the first three games, Frostproof has allowed 48 points in its last two, both losses. QB/athlete Kaleel Gaines has already committed to Michigan State. NORTH PORT AT PORT CHARLOTTE WHEN: 7:30 p.m. WHERE: Pirates Cove, Port Charlotte High School, Port Charlotte RECORDS: North Port 1-5; Port Charlotte 4-2. LAST WEEK: North Port lost to Lakewood Ranch, 28-21; Port Charlotte lost to Fort Myers, 41-25. TALKING POINTS: North Port QB Mike Innello got his first start last week and passed for 201 yards with two touchdowns and an INT. WR Stantley Thomas leads the area in receptions (18, tied with Trevor Laurent), receiving yards (393) and receiving TDs (3, tied with Paulsin Heitter). Matthew Laroche led North Port last week on the ground with 13 carries for 60 yards. Port Charlottes Anthony Stephens leads area with 579 rushing yards. Teammate Brennan Norus is second with 538 yards and nine scores. QB Christian Coffelletto has completed 15 of 19 passes for 229 yards and two scores for Pirates. This is his fourth start at quarterback. LB Taylor Severson has returned two fumbles for TDs this season.SARASOTA AT VENICEWHEN: 7:30 p.m. WHERE: Powell-Davis Stadium, Venice High School, Venice RECORDS: Sarasota 1-4; Venice 6-0. LAST WEEK: Sarasota lost to Braden River, 49-12; Venice defeated Dixie Hollins, 57-27. TALKING POINTS: RB Justin Austin is the man to watch in the Sarasota backfield. Sarasota defense allowed Braden River to rack up 471 yards of total offense. Sailors have only scored more than 12 points once this season. Venice defense has only allowed opponent to score more than 10 points twice this season. WR Langston Provitt is the variable in the Indians attack and can be utilized as a receiver and wildcat quarterback. RB Malik Bryant is Venices nominal running back. Rob Shore rushing yards and four touchdowns, but many others could get the ball, too. Its denitely an ensemble effort with the running game, White said. At the end of the day, these days of having one running back are out the window. At any level, all the good teams are by committee. American comes from a football hotbed in South Florida that includes heavyweights Booker T. Washington, Miami Central and Miramar. The Patriots might not be at that level, but their string of consecutive playoff appearances says they arent a pushover, either. Playing a good team from South Florida can only help a Charlotte team that has its eyes on the postseason in its own right. But coming to the Gulf Coast will be an experience for American, too. Its good coaching disciplined and very well-coached, White said, of football on the Gulf Coast. You cant play a team such as Charlotte and think youll win off talent. Youre going to have to play every phase of the game. Discipline is what White seeks from his Patriots he wasnt happy with a 40-0 victory over Goleman on Sept. 18 because it took American a while to nd the needed discipline. The mystery about the Patriots adds a bit of intrigue to the matchup. Few Charlotte fans would have seen the Patriots this year. But we are (a mystery) to them, Waldrop pointed out. It kind of works both ways.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or email@example.comCHARLOTTEFROM PAGE 1 GENE GORMAN INVITATIONALAt Charlotte High School, Punta Gorda SATURDAYS SCHEDULE Riverview vs. North Port, 9 a.m. Manatee HEAT vs. DeSoto County, 10 a.m. Charlotte vs. Island Coast, 10 a.m. Riverview vs. DeSoto County, 11 a.m. Manatee HEAT vs. North Port, noon Charlotte vs. Mariner, noon North Port vs. DeSoto County, 1 p.m. Seacrest vs. Charlotte, 2 p.m. Bracket play, TBABULLDOGSFROM PAGE 1 The Donald Ross Invitational was a big test for the North Port High School boys golf team. It wasnt because of the deep eld, though; it was because of the walk. Mondays tournament marked the Bobcats rst 18-hole event of the season, and coach Steve Posilovich was curious to see how they would fare under the doubled workload. The most important part is getting them to walk nine, then nine, Posilovich said. I wish we could play 18 holes every time. You can see them, right around the 12th hole, if I dont bring them something to eat or drink or anything, theyre going to be a little bit tired. The extra steps didnt seem to faze his top two, though: Rodrigo Amaya carded a 79, and freshman Zack Kubik shot a season-best 39 on the back nine to nish with an 83. I feel good about going into districts, Kubik said. Its going to be fun. Fending for herself: Laren Fender likes golfing alongside older, more experienced players. Especially, she said, if theyre better than me. The Charlotte freshman had that experience at the Donald Ross, shooting a 102 in a foursome that included Manatees Danielle Wolfe (92). And if she can do that at Sara Bay Country Club, Fender is confident she can do even better at districts on Deep Creek Golf Club, Charlottes home course. This is a really hard course, Fender said of Sara Bay. I think it will probably help me a lot.Bobcats walk the walk for 18 PREP GOLF NOTEBOOKBy JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITER | PREP GOLF SCOREBOARDDistrict sitesBOYS District 2A-20: Port Charlotte, Lemon Bay Port Charlotte GC, Monday, 8 a.m. District 3A-14: North Port, Venice Misti Creek CC, Tuesday, 8 a.m. District 1A-17: Community Christian, Imag ine Bent Tree Academy, Monday, 10 a.m. District 3A-15: Charlotte Kingsway CC, Monday, 11:30 a.m. GIRLS District 2A-20: Port Charlotte, Lemon Bay Port Charlotte GC, Monday, 8 a.m. District 3A-15: Charlotte Deep Creek GC, Monday, 10 a.m. District 3A-14: North Port, Venice Mis sion Valley CC, Tuesday,12 p.m. PREP SCHEDULETODAY Football Cape Coral at Lemon Bay, 7 p.m. DeSoto County at Frostproof, 7 p.m. American (Hialeah) at Charlotte, 7:30 p.m. North Port at Port Charlotte, 7:30 p.m. Sarasota at Venice, 7:30 p.m. Cross Country Lemon Bay at Disney World Classic, Orlando, 9:45 a.m. TAMPA Victor Hedman scored a power-play goal 1:11 into over time and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Florida Panthers 3-2 in their season opener Thursday night.

Valtteri Filppula had two assists. Erik Gudbranson and Jonathan Huberdeau scored for Florida in Gerard Gallants rst game as Panthers coach. Callahan scored on a rebound of Filppulas shot during a 5-on-3 power play, putting Tampa Bay up 2-1 at 7:17 of the third. Florida pulled even at 2 when Huberdeau put a shot past Bishop during a delayed penalty call at 9:16 of the third. Tampa Bay had six of the seven power-play chances up to that point. Bishop played in his rst regular-season game since dislocating his elbow late last season. After Gudbranson opened the scoring at 5:03 of the second, Johnson tied it at 1 when he beat Luongo from the low right circle during a power play 2:09 later. Luongo stopped Ondrej Palats breakaway backhander with 9 minutes left in the second. He also stopped Johnson during a 2-on-1 early in the third. Floridas Scottie Upshall was briey shaken up in the second after a questionable hit by Tampa Bays Radko Gudas. No penalty was called on the play.

Projects such as adopting and painting the inside B-Building stairway are underway, as well as building bird houses and building a garden here on campus. Multiple eld trips are being considered like tours of the Charlotte County Garden, Echo Garden in Fort Myers, and possibly Epcots beautiful Behind the Seeds garden tour.

There are currently 20 students signed up for the Garden Club and meetings are held after school every Thursday in Chef Ron Westroms classroom in B-214.

Communication between people has increased by a considerable amount since before we had these advances. Without technology many things, and even some people, wouldnt be here today. This new technology has done anything but prevent us from developing interpersonal skills. Without the Internet, not many people would have come out of their shells. The Internet has helped so many people become stronger and more independent. For me, the Internet has helped me substantially in coming out of my shell by introducing me to my best friend, freshman Amanda George said. We wouldve never met without it. On the Internet, there are many things to look up to help with a variety of skills, and not just interpersonal. For example, if someone has anxiety when talking in front of people, they can look up ways to help get over that. Communication also doesnt limit our ability to have healthy relationships. For example, if you have a boyfriend/ girlfriend who is traveling or at work, you can contact them with just the tap of a button. Also, for serious matters like when the police are needed or someone needs medical attention right away, you can contact emergency ofcials and they will be there right away. And there are some students who rely on this new technology to give them something to do when they are bored. Cellphones are pretty rad because they give me stuff to do when Im lazy, freshman Chloe Tollar said. Same goes for the Internet. All in all, technology usage, such as cell phones and computers, are very im portant for everyday life. They are good for maintaining relationships, helping people develop social skills and even save lives. Cellphones and the Internet have helped people with their everyday lives, freshman Hannah Bruglio said. All the information on the Internet is contained in a little box. Id say thats pretty cool.Todays technology definitely a good thingBy SYDNEY COTTRELLPCHS FRESHMAN PHOTO BY DAVID PULVERPort Charlotte High School Students of the Month enjoyed lunch with Principal Steve Dionisio last week.

Friday, October 10, 2014 Herald Page 15 On the outside, you would think having a 4-0 record would have the Port Charlotte High School JV football team jumping for joy. Instead, it has them frustrated. Oh, its nice the defense hasnt given up a point yet. The problem has been something they cant defend against; Mother Nature. The Pirates have had two games reduced to a half, another game, a freshman game, was canceled completely, and a second one moved to a Monday because of prolonged lightning delays, even if not a drop of rain fell. And unlike varsity games, once a JV game is rained out, its likely gone forever. The Pirates just lucked out that next-door neighbor Charlotte was able to reschedule. The Pirates Sept. 24 game against North Port was yet another example of this as they sprinted out to a 20-0 halftime lead before more lightning was detected. When lightning persisted, the game was called 30 minutes later because it was Rosh Hashanah, meaning games could not go on after sunset. I thought we played well tonight. They have a good quarterback and they run the ball well, so we had our work cut out for us and we were ready, Port Charlotte coach Chris Drummer said. Im glad we got the win, but we need the game time. Its Florida and you have to deal with the weather. Nothing replaces game conditions, and everyone knows that. Losing games means the kids lose out on game experience, which is critical in order for them to move to the next level. Drummer added Port Charlottes second-to-last game has also been canceled, which means they may have an inter-squad scrimmage instead. The Pirates got a break early when Josh Hobbs recovered a fumble and drove down the eld, with Shamar Harvey running it in from the two to give them a 6-0 lead midway through the rst quarter. On their next drive, the Pirates went 10 plays and 48 yards, shaking off a negated touchdown via penalty to score on a short Dallas Evans run to make it 13-0. Just before halftime, with the dark clouds rumbling in the background, quarterback Paul Barnes rolled out, saw nobody open, and dashed down the sideline for a 53-yard touchdown run to produce the nal score before the alarms went off. As a team, we looked fundamentally sound. DAndre Lewis had some good blocks. It makes your job a lot easier when youre running behind someone like that, Harvey said. Clifford Atherley had some solid runs and made numerous tackles on defense for the Bobcats. Austin Barrone recovered a fumble. We have a lot of kids who have been here for a while and know what theyre doing, Drummer said. Still, it was tough to get over the inability to nish a game. When you have a delay, its a letdown. You get hyped all week and work so hard and then you hear that horn. Its a mood killer, Harvey said. Perhaps nobody is more frustrated than head coach Jordan Ingman, whose practice that day had gotten interrupted by lightning three times. He comes to nearly every game and knows how badly the team needs work. Its very challenging. It took us four hours for a two-hour practice. Our kids are chomping at the bit. Theyve only played one full game and they work hard for these opportunities, Ingman said.

Serving Punta Gorda and Burnt Store A section of the SUN 16 pages ita Bertler, founder and president of Dollars for Mammograms, has issued a challenge to the businesses of Punta Gorda. Weve never had a decorated bra from a Punta Gorda business, she said, referring to the annual bra decorating contest that raises money to provide no-cost mammograms for women throughout Charlotte County and southern Sarasota County. Every year, businesses and individuals decorate bras that are auctioned off at the Bra-Dazzle Brunch in February. Men volunteer to model the bras. The more outlandishly they are decorated, the better. Meanwhile, businesses display their bra as proud sponsors of the cause.

USPS 743170 The Sun is published daily by Sun Coast Media Group, Inc., 23170 Harborview Road, Charlotte Harbor, FL 33980-2198. When it comes to my career as a journalist, I think its fair for my audience to know two things about me. First, math makes me absolutely nervous. And, second, I nd it very difcult to say no to a challenge, especially when it comes from a friend. I tell you this, readers, because it wasnt one friend, but two, who called me up a few weeks ago with a request. My longtime sources and school-beat pals Mike Riley and Allyn Shelatz were nominating me for the Ive Been Back to School project in Charlotte County Public Schools. The program is simple: pick a couple dozen folks from the community and pair them with school employees (were talking everything from custodians and bus drivers to paraprofessionals and teachers). Instead of shadowing the assigned staff member, community members would take the reins of the operation, following lesson plans and learning exactly what it is like to work for a full day at a local school. Of course I said yes, making the request that I wanted to be placed in a classroom. As a former daycare volunteer, dance instructor and once-upon-atime education major, I gured this was the best place for me to spend the day. My room assignment came in last week. On Oct. 7, I would be visiting a third-grade classroom at Deep Creek Elementary School, where I would be leading 16 students in Ginger Abrahams classroom. When I met with Abraham last Friday to review her lesson plans, tour the classroom and get a feel for her classroom management style, I made sure to tell her I was anxious. Nobody wants to mess up a childs interests in a subject, and I certainly didnt want to pass my dislike of math onto any of the impressionable minds in her classroom. I guess you can say with 40 years of teaching experience under her belt, Abraham recognized a teachable moment, quickly squashing my insecu rities and giving me that little push of encouragement we all need sometimes. By no means did the task ahead of me sound easy, especially the idea about teaching math rst thing in the morning. Talk about a sink-or-swim moment. But when the big day nally arrived, I did what I have done in so many other challenging work experiences, including that time I was being strapped into a plane destined for a topsy-turvy, loopty-looing trip through the sky over Charlotte Harbor. I just took a deep breath and remembered the expert, in this case Mrs. Abraham, was nearby and ready to jump in with her parachute of experience and wealth of knowledge. And thankfully she did. A lot. And not just during math. At the end of the day, I was still standing, and, better yet, so was the classroom. The children were wonderful, the school employees were welcoming and the hours passed quickly during my day in the life of a local teacher. Ive been asked to give a full report of my day in Abrahams classroom in this weekends Charlotte Sun Be sure to pick up a copy. And if you happen to meet one of our ne educators in Charlotte County, be sure to thank them for all they do for our kids. Truly, they are unsung heroes in our community.Editor heads back to school Pamela Staik PGH EditorPamela Staik is the editor of the Punta Gorda Herald. Contact her at email@example.com.

People all over the Burnt Store area are thrilled to now have a barber shop nearby, she said. In fact, the barber shops Facebook page is full of comments like, Love that you are right down the road. From Jones Loop Road to Cape Coral, there was no place to get a haircut, said Jackson. So we knew wed be lling a big need at this location. Burnt Store Barber Shop is located in the Turtle Crossing Plaza, along with Sandman Book Company and Subway.

The day after that, Oct. 26, on the great lawn of Four Points by Sheraton Punta Gorda Harborside, is the triumphant return of the chambers version of the Its a Knock-Out Competition. Will the team from Sandras restaurant hold onto the crown, or will the PGPD seek revenge? Find out during the much-anticipated competition, which starts at 11 a.m. Swing on down, grab a cold one at TTs Tiki Bar and watch in awe as teams compete in a crazy, sixgame series, eliminating each other until a new champion is crowned. This is a truly incredible team-building exercise, which requires six adults, with a minimum of two females per team. No practice is required. Its just crazy, silly, stupid fun that involves water, foam, balloons and a lot of other props. To register a team, be it a community organization, business or friends hanging out, call the chamber. Registration is $50 per team. We guarantee your team will be working much better together by Monday morning, so the entry price will be well worth it. Finally, dont forget Dave Koz, Nick Colionne and Mindi Abair are all heading to Punta Gorda in February 2015 for the annual Punta Gorda Wine & Jazz Festival. Full details and advance tickets can be found on the chambers website.WRIGHTFROM PAGE 3 PHOTO PROVIDEDMembers of the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce took part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Nerium International, a home-based business. The event took place at the Charlotte Community Foundation, 227 Sullivan St. Punta Gorda. Gregg Marrapodi is in the business of repairing cars and helping people. As the owner of Greggs Automotive Maintenance and Repair Center, he has given to numerous charities through the years to assist local residents, and now he is gearing up to donate to what he refers to as the forgotten charity autism. During the month of October, Marrapodi said he will offer his Putting the Brakes on Autism campaign. Customers who need brakes will have the cost of the Wagner Thermal Quiet brake pads deducted from their bill for one axle on their vehicle front or rear. It boils down to about a $100 savings, he said. These are top-of-theline brake pads. At the end of the month, Marrapodi tracks all the brake work that was done and then writes a check for 10 percent of that amount, donating it to Harbour Heights Charities, a local nonprot. The money is then distributed to six local schools for students enrolled in special needs programs. Marrapodi said he was totally unaware of the severity of autism until he met two individuals who came into his shop. I had a customer who was different shall we say, Marrapodi said. His speech and the way he acted were a bit off, but he was a nice guy. Marrapodi said one day he was chatting with his sister, who made the appointments and authorized the repairs to his car, when she told him her brother was autistic. Here was a guy functioning very well, he said. Although he was autistic, he worked, drove a car and had his own place. His sister had to do certain things for him, but he was able to get by. The other person that Marrapodi met was a child, who would come into his business when his grandfather needed work done on his automobile. When he was told that the child was autistic, he was taken aback. He ran around like any other kid, he said. He appeared normal, and then his grandfather told me he was autistic. Stunned by what he learned, Marrapodi talked with his sister, a speech pathologist, to learn more about autism. She explained the condition and how it affects people differently. Up until that time, he envisioned an autistic person acting like the Dustin Hoffman character in the movie Rain Man. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, www.ninds.nih.gov, autism spectrum disorder, or ASD, is a range of complex neurodevelopment disorders, characterized by social impairments, communication difculties and restricted, repetitive and stereotyped patterns of behavior. Marrapodi said he works closely with Steve Vieira, chairman of Harbour Heights Charities, with the donations. Harbour Heights is a good home for this charity, Marrapodi said. Ninety-eight percent of the money goes to the kids. Its all about doing something good, Marrapodi continued. If I can make an impact on one kids life, its been worth it. Thats my credo. Greggs Automotive is located at 236 South Tamiami Trail.

Candidates for local, state and federal office were the speakers. Vasco Peeples, Democratic candidate for the Charlotte County Commission from District 2, said the countys budget disturbed him.

C. Durfee Marshall is Republican candidate for the School Board from District 1. His Democratic opponent, Elise Haymans, called for a return to basics of reading and writing or children will grow up to become unproductive citizens and tax burdens.

Herald Page 8 Friday, October 10, 2014 decorate a bra and customers vote on their favorites by depositing $1 in a receptacle next to it. In this way, the bras earn money even before they are auctioned at the luncheon. While no Punta Gorda businesses have as yet participated by decorating bras, a group of local women was instrumental in helping Dollars for Mammograms expand to cover Punta Gorda women about seven years ago. But rst things rst. It was the year 2000, and Bertler of Englewood needed a mammogram. She and her husband Dick were business owners and, like many others, were underinsured. Bertler knew if she had difculty affording a mammogram, many other women must face the same problem. She started Dollars for Mammograms that year with seed money donated from a former group, Money for Mammograms. A man who has remained anonymous donated additional funds in memory of his late wife. The organization began by providing no-cost screening mammograms to uninsured and underinsured women in Englewood. With more fundraising, the group was able to add Port Charlotte, Venice and North Port. The goal was always to serve all of Charlotte County and south Sarasota County, but we just didnt have the funds to expand to cover all areas at that time, said Bertler. After I gave a speech to a group of women, one asked me what it would take to cover Punta Gorda. I thought about it and told her $10,000 to start would get that going. Thats when the Girls Night Out of Punta Gorda set about raising money through their rst Barstool Open. Proceeds from the event enabled Dollars for Mammograms to begin serving Punta Gorda women. The group just held its seventh annual Barstool Open on Oct. 4, and reportedly raised more than $22,000. Women and men who cant afford screening mammograms can complete an application on the website, www. dollarsformammograms.org. A doctors prescription must accompany the application. Acceptance is based on household income and, if accepted, the applicant must go to the assigned screening location, which is based on zip code. Thanks to fundraising efforts through the years, by the Punta Gorda GNO and others throughout the county, Dollars for Mammograms can now also provide no-cost diagnostic mammograms, breast ultrasounds and stereotactic biopsies if medically necessary for recipients who have had their screening mammograms through Dollars for Mammograms. For all she has done for women (and men) in the past 15 years, WGCU named Bertler as one of ve MAKERS 2014, Women who Make Southwest Florida. But there is still much more to be done, Bertler said. Dollars for Mammograms must continually raise funds to be able to provide no-cost mammograms to uninsured and underinsured area women and men.

Herald Page 10 Friday, October 10, 2014 With its numerous attractions, Punta Gorda is fast becoming the place to be when visiting the Sunshine State. Now, in addition to the shing, boating, shopping and dining, people can enjoy another night of music at Gilchrist Park, located at 400 W. Esplanade. And the best part about it, both evenings Tuesday and Thursday are absolutely free of charge. Music in the Park began about 25 years ago by local educator and musician Steve Blackwell. Blackwell, the grandson of a vaudeville entertainer, taught at Charlotte High School for 34 years as an English teacher and media specialist. He was instrumental in forming the Guitar Army, which would meet every Thursday in the park, and invite aspiring musicians in the audience to join them on stage. Sadly, he passed away in 2006 after a long battle with cancer. But the legacy has carried on. The Thursday jam sessions will continue on Thursdays but with acoustic guitars only. On Tuesdays, musicians can bring their ampliers. Both sessions start at 6 p.m. and usually end about 10 p.m. Despite a driving rain, about 30 people gathered under the pavilion nearest the park entrance at a recent Thursday night event. The group entertained the audience with a variety of country-western tunes, and the musicians invited everyone to sing along. Its a great community driver, Fred Brandon, a musician who has been going to the park for the past seven years, said. People come from Venice and even Naples. I have met visitors from Tennessee, New Hampshire, Ohio, all over the country. They bring their chairs and coolers. They just love it. Brandon, who is in charge of the Tuesday night amplier group, is also a member of the local band Country Express and has played backup for country-western legends George Jones and Tammy Wynette. On our rst Tuesday night, the weather cooperated and we had about 350 there, he said. Thats a great turnout. During the in-season, we may have as many as 1,200 to 1,300 people in the audience. Its insane. Brandon said the general manger at the PG Waterfront Hotel & Suites stopped by and told him he really appreciated the music. Many of the hotel guests sit on the balconies and enjoy the music. Whether it is Tuesdays or Thursdays, Brandon said the crowd will come out in spite of the threat of thunderstorms during the rainy season. The rst Tuesday we played, the rain was coming in sideways in the pavilion, he said. My amps got soaking wet. But we kept playing, and the crowd stayed. Brandons wife Kelly said the musicians play everything from country to Rock n Roll and even doo-wop. Its very eclectic, she said. People just start singing along and even dancing. Its a great venue for residents as well as seasonal visitors. On the second Tuesday of every month, Fred Brandon said his wife and about half-a-dozen other ladies bake cupcakes and cookies to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. They hand them out free until theyre gone, he said. Fred Brandon said they always begin their program with God Bless America. On the Tuesday closest to Veterans Day, the musicians will honor all the veterans in the audience as well. I really appreciate the mayor, the City Council and the police department for allowing us to have another night of free music at Gilchrist Park, Fred Brandon said. As long as I can walk and breathe, I will continue to entertain the people.Two nights of music offered at Gilchrist Park Al Hemingway PGH CorrespondentAl Hemingway is a freelance writer.

Herald Page 14 Friday, October 10, 2014 How much better could life get for the Charlotte High School junior varsity volleyball team? Fresh off winning a JV volleyball tour nament in North Port, the tarpons had a chance to host Riverdale High School, a team they absolutely dominated early in the season. And for one game, the script held true to form at least until the Raiders decided to come ready to play in game two, catching the Tarpons ill prepared in the process. While the 25-5, 25-22 victory gave Charlotte its 11th win in 13 tries, it did not make head coach Jill Damico particularly happy. They stopped playing, she said. We got comfortable after the rst win, so we have to go back to playing our game. Damico downplayed the situation, saying she was trying to get her non-starters some much-needed play ing time, but there were still too many mistakes for her liking. I try to put them in situations to challenge them, Damico said. Normally, my strongest play, but when I have the opportunity to put them in, I do. It looked like we have some work to do in practice. Charlotte started the rst game with a long service run by Michelle Bunch, with Victoria Naskle serving the game out with another run. However, the second game was much closer as the Tarpons, apparently thinking this would be another easy night, took their foot off the gas. Riverdale held the lead for much of the game as the Tarpons kept making errors that led to free points for the Raiders. It took several short rallies late in the game to salvage the game and match. In the rst game, we knew we were going to win, and then we got too cocky and lost our momentum, Bunch said. We had more bench people in the rst game, and maybe we werent as warmed up. Im glad we pulled it out. Emily Vaughn said, We stopped communicating like we did in the rst game. I dont think we were cocky, we just werent on it like we usually are. Bunch led the way with seven kills and two aces. Vaughn also had seven kills. Caitlin Giacalone had a great allaround game, with four kills, two aces and 10 digs, while Abby Hayse contributed eight digs. Damico said she was happy regarding her teams play in last weekends tournament, saying her teams regularly make the nals, but can never nish the deal. This time they did. Were jelling as a team and communicating, so weve improved greatly, Damico said. Were guring it out. Its a team effort and everyone has a part. And as the season hits the home stretch, the hope is that the young kids start to hit their stride. Were really close, but we still have some things to work on as a team, Vaughn said. We can still communicate better and play as a team. Communication is denitely big, Bunch added. Covering and defense is also what we need to work on.

That group of people makes up the CHS Book Club. During their meetings, members are ready to discuss literary works. The Book Club is sponsored by Tara Cain, Charlottes media center specialist, every week. As Cain explained, the goal of the club is to provide a social aspect to reading because reading is solitary; its something you do yourself. Some might think that Book Club consists of just reading. The Book Club is much more than just that. Book Club offers many great things for the students, such as getting a little crafty by making bookmarks and participating in Skype chats with authors. Also, there is a gathering in Fort Myers every March for students to meet their favorite authors and to have a day dedicated to the love of reading. In Book Club, we, of course, talk about books, Cain said, and sometimes we all read the same, exact books and talk about that. For the students in Book Club, the organization offers different opinions on a book. Its not only just reading and sharing, it is reading and discussing the feelings experienced toward certain characters and the events that unfold in the book. When you nish a book, its so exciting to nd someone else who has read the book and be like, Can you believe that his character did that; this surprised me, stated Cain. The club president is Anna Tailon, a senior. She said, I love that it gives me the opportunity to discuss my favorite books with people who actually want to listen. The Book Club has grown in numbers and in popularity. Many authors have visited the club and spoke to the Tarpon readers. The club hopes to invite many more this year.Side by Side shows best of CHSBy LAUREN SKEOCH CHS SENIORNothing beats great entertainment. Each year, Charlotte High Schools drama, vocal and band departments put on a show called Side by Side. The show is presented right after the school year has begun and showcases the schools many performing arts groups in one great show at the Charlotte Performing Arts Center. This years show took place on Sept. 26. During the program, audience members viewed the artwork produced by students at CHS while enjoying an assortment of beverages and desserts. What most people dont realize, though, is exactly what it takes to make it all happen each year. It takes a lot of work, said choral director Jaci Cushman. Not just in rehearsal, but ticket sales, and that gets complicated. Plus, students are bringing in desserts. The plates, the napkins, the forks it takes a lot of coordination, Cushman said. Although it is a lot of work, it is said to be far worth it. Not only does the audience get a treat, but it is also a chance for the other departments to see the talents of the other groups. This is our chance to perform all together, although we are separate departments when we are performing on the stage, you get a sense of this is what weve been working for, and its amazing that everyone, together, is united there at that time, said Bailey Teitsworth, the treasurer of the choral department. Choral secretary Anna Taillon agreed. These performances are so magical because we have people from every performing arts section of our school, she said. Its like whatever is going on in someones life is just forgotten for that moment when they are on stage, and that is so beautiful.News from Charlotte High School CONTRIBUTORSTarpon Page contributors are students at Charlotte High School.

Friday, October 10, 2014 Herald Page 15 T he Charlotte High School Tarpons rolled over their competition at the North Port Junior Varsity Volleyball Tournament on Sept. 20. They nished the day with a perfect 8-0 mark to claim the championship. The rst two matches were merely warm ups for the Tarpons, as they swept DeSoto County and Manatee high schools, with neither team getting more than 13 points in any of the sets. After the break, the Tarpons met tournament host North Port High School. That contest proved to be a little more challenging, as the Bobcats took the lead on the Tarpons 8-6. The Tarpons rallied for seven-straight points to take a ve-point lead at 13-8. North Port came back and trailed by just one point all the way to the end, when Charlotte surged ahead with a hard-fought 25-22 win. The second set also went to Charlotte, 25-21. Cardinal Mooney Catholic High School was the next team to fall, as the two teams met in the championship game. Charlotte took the opening set, 25-18, but the match-winning set was much closer. The teams were tied at 14 and remained tied or had a one-point difference until they reached a 23-all tie. The Tarpons scored twice to take home the championship trophy. Im really happy with the way the girls played, said Tarpon coach Jill Damico. This is the best theyve played. Theyve come a long way this season. Emily Vaughn led the Tarpons with 24 kills, followed by Michele Bunch with 22. Caitlin Giacolone led with 20 assists, while Marissa Stack and Abby Hayse each had 20 digs to lead the Tarpons. Sophomore Victoria Naskle led the team with 14 aces. She said, This feels good, we deserved it. We really came together and played well. Ashley Landry said. This was such a rush, its amazing. We were talking more on the court and moving our feet and that really helped us.Tarpons perfect in JV volleyball tournament Steve Knapp Sports WriterSteve Knapp is a sports writer and photographer.

Herald Page 16 Friday, October 10, 2014 Ch arlotte Warrior Pop Warner football fans had to take two days to watch their teams in action during the last weekend of September at Carmalita Athletic Park. After lightning brought things to an early close Saturday afternoon, the Junior Midget and Midget teams played their games on Sept. 28, and fared much better than the Pee Wee squads the day before. The Junior Midgets gained a stronghold on a playoff berth as it cruised against the Wildcats in a 38-6 mercy rule victory, improving their record to 4-1. Jeremiah Harvey scored twice, and Ken Scribner, Marcus Nelson and Josh Brown also found the end zone as the Warriors built a 24-6 halftime lead. The Midget team found itself in a tougher battle. After going into halftime scoreless, the Warriors nally reached the end zone to make it 6-0 after the third quarter. They then blew the game open in the fourth to win 20-6, creeping over the .500 mark at 3-2. That more than made up for a rough Saturday, but, overmatched, the Junior Pee Wee and Pee Wee squads struggled against other teams making a run at the Peace River Conference playoffs. The Mitey-Mites remained winless, but the players made an impressive showing against a team that would improve to 4-2. Coby Lee scored twice for the Warriors, but that couldnt quite counter the scores from the opposing team. The fast-improving Warriors fell to 0-6 with a 19-12 loss. Dominic Pipitone and Scott Cannizzaro played great games on defense, while Connor Trimm also had a big game for a team playing with 14 rst-year players. The Junior Pee Wees, again playing with barely the minimum, dropped to 1-5 as the Wildcats cruised to a 38-0 win. The winless Pee Wees played as the skies grew gloomier, and, for a half, they more than competed with the Wildcats in a turnover fest. Charlottes Jereme Swofford scored on a pass from Ty Wesley late in the rst quarter to cut the Riverdale lead to 7-6, trailing just 13-6 at halftime. But the turnovers nally caught up with them, and the Wildcats broke the game open. Jeremiah Davis scored twice, and Racquan Clock and Frankie Raybon also hit pay dirt as Riverdale took a 26-7 lead before lightning got too close. After 2 hours of waiting, football director Bo Balcomb sent everyone home. It has been a common theme for the Warriors. Rain, lightning and muddy elds have curtailed the Warriors ability to practice. Its just a bad year. Its the worst Ive seen it. Weve only had one practice a week for the past three weeks, Balcomb said. The eld is in bad shape, and weve had the lightning. Balcomb said the 10-mile lightning rule isnt all to blame. Moving to 10 miles has been tough. It used to be 8. I agree with the rule because I dont want to be the coach who dees the rule and somebody gets struck by lightning, Balcomb said. You have to think about the children rst.Warriors get mixed results against Riverdale Chuck Ballaro Sports WriterChuck Ballaro is a freelance writer and photographer.

Palm Chevy Buick GMC has once again partnered with the Charlotte Warriors of the Pop Warner Midget Football League by providing the six football teams and the four cheer teams with football kits, according to Cherie George, media contact for the auto dealership. The kits include equipment bags, footballs, wrist coaches, eld goal and kick-off tees, helmet sticker decals, cheer sports packs and water bottles. George said the six dealers in the Southern Group, of which Palm is a member, met to decide what they can do collectively to raise awareness for their dealerships and, at the same time, donate to local youth sports teams. The national Buick/GMC Youth Football Program also kicks in some money as well, she said. Every dollar raised goes to local youth football, baseball and soccer teams. Palm Chevy Buick GMC has been involved with the Charlotte Warriors for the past ve years, George said. Every year Pop Warner suggests local teams that could benet from their donation. George said in addition to the football kits, Palm Auto will present a $500 check to the Pop Warner League that will be distributed amongst all the Charlotte Warrior teams. Sponsored leagues across the country will each receive 500 free sweepstakes entry forms to distribute within the community, according to a press release. At the end of the entry period, one winner will pick a 2015-16 regular season collegiate or professional football game played in the United States and receive four tickets to the game, as well as airfare and hotel. Second prize is a deluxe gas grill, George said. Ray Scribner, president of the Charlotte Warriors, said they were looking for sponsors a few years back when Palm Chevy Buick GMC stepped up to the plate to assist them. They have been a gracious sponsor for us, he said. It really helped build our organization by giving much-needed equipment to kids who otherwise could not afford it. We really appreciate it. I hope our partnership can continue for years to come.Palm dealership helps Pop Warner program Al Hemingway PGH CorrespondentAl Hemingway is a freelance writer.
