COMING COMING COMING SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY Sundays editions of the Sun will feature a guide highlighting the top state and local races and issues in the upcoming elections. Also be sure to check out our closer look at the medical marijuana debate through the eyes of a local family. I was backstage at this weeks guber natorial debate, as part of my role as past chairman of the Florida Press Association, getting ready to welcome the audience. Watching the fan controversy unfold behind the theater curtain, before the debate started, was hilariously sickening. Prior to the debate, the Rick Scott team asked that there not be a fan underneath the podiums. Their rationale was that the fan pushed air into the mic and made a slight background noise like distant thunder. The real reason for the fan is that apparently Charlie Crist sweats a lot. Think Richard Nixon. The Scott campaign knew about Crists perspiration problem, and wrote language into the debate rules to exclude the fan in order to get under Crists skin. The Crist people understood what the Scott people were doing, and devised a clever counter. In the rules they signed, they said as long as the auditorium was comfortable, they would agree to no fan. Upon arriving, they installed a fan, even though the temperature on the stage was a briskly cool 66 degrees. They had pulled a political jujitsu on the Scott campaign, turning the Scott campaigns plan to uster Crist by not allowing a fan, instead into a fan installation, to uster Scott. The you-know-what hit the fan. The two campaigns were fanned out in vigorous fanfare with the debate organizers. In the opinion of the debate organizers, the arena was plenty cool and no fan was needed. Each man threatened not to go on unless he got his way. I volunteered to go unplug the fan and remove it. But more mature heads prevailed. The debate organizers nally agreed to start the show, and challenged the two candidates to show up. Crist already had arrived backstage, not visible to the audience, looking condent that he had turned Scotts political fan dance to his own advantage. The moderator started the live telecast noting that neither candidate was onstage. Timing that moment perfectly, the great political actor that is Charlie Crist made his grand entrance, waving to the crowd like the hero, while the apparent villain Scott was still offstage. It was a masterful performance. When one of the interviewers, Rosemary Goudreau, asked him directly, Do the rules of the debate say there should be no fan? Crist looked right into the camera and addressed Floridians with a lie: Not that I am aware of. He didnt need to lie. At the end of the debate, when asked about it again, he laughingly said, Why not, is there any thing wrong with being comfortable? If pressed, he could have said, in his opinion, with the bright lights, he needed the fan and the rules allowed him to have one under that circumstance. But he didnt. Crist bent the rules and unnecessarily lied about it. After a terribly awkward period of time, Rick Scott nally came onstage. His bungling political skills and inept staff had allowed Crist to become the hero and Scott the villain. Scott, at his best, resembles a wooden Al Gore, and the fact he was now the apparent villain threw him off his stride even more. I lost count of the number of times he said that he was thankful his mom divorced an abusive husband. His closing statement was disjointed and unpolished. Crist used Scotts fan strategy against him, and Scott fell on his political fanny. David Dunn-Rankin is president and publisher of the Sun.

While employment typically picks up this time of year, last months jobless rate took a precipitous dive throughout Southwest Florida, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity reported Friday. The unemployment rate in Charlotte County fell to 6.2 percent in September, from 6.7 percent the previous month. In September 2013, the countys jobless rate was 7.2 percent. The local figures are not seasonally adjusted. Meanwhile, monthly unemployment numbers in Sarasota and DeSoto counties A healthy fallBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERFALL | 9 Getting Dizzy for a good causePUNTA GORDA Although they have aged out of regular recess, kids at Punta Gorda Middle Schools first Track and Field Fun Day showed youre never really too old to get out in the sun and play. The students meandered through a football throw, hula-hooping and the ever-popular dunk tank. But then there was the Dizzy Izzy: a race during which a student puts his head down toward a baseball bat, then spins around 10 times before running. And, as the name suggests, their meandering gets a bit sillier afterward. Its really been a nice day, and great for students to get to enjoy this. And, at the same time, its our main fundraiser for the year, said Jon Butts, assistant principal for eighth grade. The parent-teacher organization provided water and popcorn for all students for free, and the games, hot dog, soda and candy sales cost extra, ranging in price from a quarter to a dollar. Proceeds will go to two things: first, restoring a food pantry for needy kids, which had been cut; second, updating and maintaining technology put into the school after By SOMMER BROKAWSTAFF WRITERDIZZY | 14MURDOCK On a recent day, a woman stumbled across the new Komens Boutique and ofce at the Port Charlotte Town Center mall. She had just found out that morning she had stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. Tish Sheesley, a mission events director for Susan G. Komen Southwest Florida, was there for her. She had to be rocked to the core, Sheesley said, but at least she could offer her encouragement and guide her to some resources. Thats one of the important roles the visible ofce has played since opening in May. Now, the local afliate of the national Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization hopes to raise money to help more people through an inaugural fundraiser in the Charlotte County area. The uber-casual banquet called the Flip Flop Ball will take place from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. today at the Four Points by Sheraton Punta Gorda Harborside. Guests will wear their best island attire and oral button-ups for the evening. Charlotte County is uber-casual, Sheesley said. Its like a black-tie fundraiser with music, dancing, a live auction and silent auction, but obviously no black and no tie. The event, with tickets at www. komensw.org priced at $75 per person, includes a tropical Key West buffet and margarita bar, hermit crab Uber-casual event takes on breast cancerBy SOMMER BROKAWSTAFF WRITERCANCER | 14 AREA UNEMPLOYMENTCounty September August September Charlotte 6.2% 6.7% 7.2% Sarasota 5.8% 6.2% 6.9% DeSoto 7.3% 8.1% 8.5% Source: Florida Department of Economic Opportunity SUN PHOTOS BY SOMMER BROKAWBill Steelnack, a television production teacher at Punta Gorda Middle School, volunteered to sit on the dunk tank for the schools rst Track and Field Fun Day.

The Sun /Saturday, October 18, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 3 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS EAST OF PUNTA GORDA A local man has been accused of threatening a couple of deputies with a knife Thursday night, while they were trying to arrest him for his involvement in an altercation over parenting. Authorities were dispatched to Swaying Palm Drive, where they learned Christopher Anthony Blair, 39, had pushed around a woman known to him because he felt that she wasnt disciplining her 14-month-old daughter correctly, the Charlotte County Sheriffs report shows. Blair also shoved the womans boyfriend, who he felt should have cared more about how his girlfriend raises the child. When the deputies went to Blairs home, on the 5900 block of Sabalwood Drive, also east of Punta Gorda, to question him, the suspect cursed at authorities and told them they were trespassing, the report shows. When they told Blair they were conducting a criminal investigation, he reportedly cursed some more. He was placed under arrest shortly before midnight. While deputies were struggling to handcuff Blair, he produced a knife with a 5-inch blade and pointed it at the stomach of one deputy, according to the report. Another ofcial was able to disarm the man, and he was restrained. In all, Blair is facing two counts each of battery and aggravated assault on an ofcer.

Our Town Page 6 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Saturday, October 18, 2014 How would you describe your church? Previously, weve looked at two churches in Revelation 2. Because the believers in Ephesus lost their rst love, they had become cold. The Church at Smyrna, on the other hand, was courageous. Todays column examines the Church at Pergamos in Revelation 2:12-17. In verse 9, John ominously describes Jesus as the One with the sharp two-edged sword. Their city, Jesus says, houses Satans throne. Yet He declared that the Church at Pergamos remained true to Christ. They didnt lose their faith, even when Antipas, a faithful witness for Christ, was martyred in the city where Satan lived (verse 13). Eastern Orthodox Christian Church tradition indicates that when Antipas wouldnt worship Caesar, he was placed inside a hollow brass bull with a re built beneath it and roasted to death. Yet Jesus had a few things against them (verses 14-15). His reference to Balaam and Balak pertains to Israels sins of eating food offered to idols and sexual immorality (Numbers 22-25). As we set our sails for heaven, in calling Pergamos the city where Satan lived, Jesus advice is that while we are in this world, we must neither adopt its lifestyles nor assume its values. Hebrews 4:12 (The Message), suggests that the ideal instrument in our warfare against the enemy of compromise is Gods powerful Word, sharp as a surgeons scalpel, cutting through doubt or defense, laying us open to listen and obey. No one is impervious to Gods Word. The Bibles sword-like qualities include the power of truth that lays bare our sin and need, and kills false doctrine. One day it will be the standard by which well be judged. Numbers 31:8 reveals that Balaam was killed by the sword. Christ counsels the Church in Pergamos, Turn away from your sins! Its also His message for the Church today. Ignore His warning, and well face the wrath of the One who will ght against us with His sword in His mouth. Only those who hear what the Holy Spirit says to His Church will feast on the Bread of Life Christ gives to overcomers. Through his love, we are more than conquer ors (Romans 8:37). Hell give each of us a white stone upon which Hell write a new name known only to us. The Rev. Larry Armbrust, a retired United Methodist Florida Conference pastor, lives in Port Charlotte.

Sing for the CureSing for the Cure, a Proclamation of Hope is a musical/dramatic work edited by Pamela Martin and published by Shawnee Press. The music and words describe the journey of a person who has been diagnosed with cancer the feelings both of that person and the family involved as well.

Anyone is welcome and encouraged to come and practice and perform the work. Also needed are folks who would be willing to do short readings between the musical numbers.

The Sun /Saturday, October 18, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 7 The orders were clear, but the task was difcult. The elite force had to use the cover of night to sneak into the terrorist compound. They knew they had to perform a task that was unusually harsh. They also knew that their obedience would call for the risking of their very lives. However the mission was worth it. The SEAL team accomplished their task of carrying out a harsh obedience. Not everything a child of God is instructed to do is easy or pleasant. I think of Abraham, who was told by God to sacrifice his only son on Mount Moriah. Of course, this was a test, but for Abraham it was real, and his hand held the knife of a willing obedience to God. Jesus, of course, is our supreme example of carrying out a harsh obedience. The cross was more than physical suffering for our Lord; it also meant the shame of sin being placed on Him, and separation from His Father. But this harsh obedience of our Lord was described as worth it all. Hebrews 12:2 tells us: Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Sometimes Gods Word instructs us to go in a direction that seems uphill. Sometimes His ways go against our ways, and our old sinful nature groans. Living a biblical lifestyle in an age that has seemed to have thrown out the book is not easy. Going against the current of politically correct thinking may seem like paddling upstream in a flooded river. But God has promised His blessing on those who obey Him. He tells us in Psalm 1:1,3: Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful and whatever he does shall prosper. Are you facing a harsh obedience in your walk with Christ? Stand firm and remember that you are not alone He stands right with you. The Rev. Jim Stultz is pastor of Peace River Baptist Church in Punta Gorda. Email him at email@example.com.Sermon of the Week: A harsh obedience Mobile Food PantryThe Harry Chapin Food Bank will continue to bring its Mobile Food Pantry to Charlotte County through October, providing free vegetables, meats and other food to needy families and individuals.

Sarasota posted a 5.8 percent rate in September after Augusts 6.2 percent. A year ago, Sarasota County stood at 6.9 percent. DeSoto Countys unemployment rate dropped from 8.1 percent in August to 7.3 percent last month. In September 2013, DeSoto saw an 8.5 percent unemploy ment rate. A large number of employers are calling us with all types of jobs, said Debbie Guilbault, center supervisor for CareerSource Southwest Florida in Charlotte County. They seem to be hiring a lot of folks. Among those ramping up their seasonal hiring are the Best Buy electronics store and the Port Charlotte staffing agency Express Employment Professionals, she said. New businesses, and more jobs, are also on the horizon. A LongHorn Steakhouse is expected to debut this month on the site of the former Toys R Us, near the Port Charlotte Town Center mall. And a Walmart Neighborhood Market, set to open later this year, already has its local management team in place and will soon start hiring other positions, she said. In addition, more professional openings are being filled. Guilbault said the local health care industry is hiring LPNs, RNs and CNAs. In particular, nursing homes are drawing more residents, requiring more help, according to local census figures. In fact, the Punta Gorda metropolitan statistical area, which includes Charlotte County, had the highest employment growth rate over the year in health services and education compared to all Florida metro areas, climbing 5.6 percent. Nonagricultural employment in the Punta Gorda metro area stands at 43,800, an increase of 1,300 jobs over the year, or a 3.1 percent jump. Were having a hard time finding enough job seekers to fill vacant positions, Guilbault said. There are jobs out there. Anybody whos interested is welcome to come into our office. An even greater employment gain took place in Sarasota County. In September, the North Port-BradentonSarasota MSA led all metro areas with the strongest annual job growth rate in total nonagricultural employment, increasing by 3.7 percent. Government was the only industry losing jobs in the metro area over the past year, declining by 500 jobs. In the metro areas across Charlotte, Lee and Collier counties, the leisure and hospitality segment was the only industry to surren der jobs over the year, losing 600 positions. Meanwhile, Floridas seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 6.1 percent in September, down 0.2 percentage point from the previous month, and down 0.8 percentage point from 6.9 percent a year ago. The states September rate was the lowest since June 2008, when it was 6.0 percent. The U.S. unemploy ment rate was 5.9 per cent in September. The U.S. Labor Department said this week that weekly applications for unemployment aid fell to its lowest level in 14 years.Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgFALLFROM PAGE 1 Czech/Slovak Club to meetThe American Czech and Slovak Club of Southwest Florida will meet at 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Family Table Restaurant, 14132 S.

According to an incident report, the 34-year-old woman last had been seen around 10 p.m. Oct. 11. Her door was left unlocked, the lights were on, laundry was still in the wash, and her keys were found in a neighbors yard. Thankfully, though, her family now can calm their worries, as McDonald has been found and is no longer listed as missing endangered, according to a Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce press release late Friday afternoon. The CCSO had sent out an endangered-missing-adult alert a few days after Katy vanished. A week (for an adult) to be missing is not uncommon, Criminal Investigations Commander Capt. Les Partington said. And its not very often that we havent found someone whos gone missing. McDonalds family had been concerned for her safety. They could not be reached for comment after news broke of McDonald having been located. This year, the Sheriffs Office has received 315 reports of missing persons (not including McDonald). Partington said he could think of only one of those cases where the subject hasnt been found, and it involves a girl who investigators think ran away to be with a boyfriend.Email: email@example.comMissing woman foundBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITER MCDONALD
Our Town Page 10 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Saturday, October 18, 2014 Punta Gorda can aord this stuEditors Note: A paragraph was inadvertently omitted when this letter was originally published. Editor: Marvelously, citizens restored Punta Gorda after incurring extensive hurricane damage. Now observers tout PG as great. To perpetuate greatness, PG citizens must commit to fund ongoing, necessary capital improvements. However, City Council has not been great. Embarrassingly, PG politicians/bureaucrats are now acting like beggars groveling over other peoples money. Council voted to construct a $28 million Reverse Osmosis water plant for exclusive city use, but council believes everyone else in Charlotte/ Florida should absorb 50 per cent of the cost for PG has an entitlement. PG taxpayers are now committed to paying a $4 million engineering design contract for the plant that might never be built. (Sun s View 8/22/14); and Council wants non-PG county citizens to pay for the preponderance of the $12 million cost of its capital projects wish list via the proposed 1 percent sales tax extension; and, hence, it constantly begs voters to pass the extension. The list contains capital expenditures most cities (PGs size) readily nance from internal ad valorem taxes e.g. sidewalks, Harborwalk/ pathways, street and parking lot lighting, police cars/re trucks, computer/technology upgrades, etc. Can PG residents afford higher taxation to assure PG greatness? You decide. Currently, each individual PG resident averages an annual income of $40,975. The average annual income for each non-PG county resident totals $24,931. This lesser well-heeled group shoulders the biggest share of the taxs nancial burden. This situation represents one of many examples of inequities embedded throughout this dumb tax proposal. Charlotte taxpayers should overwhelmingly vote NO on the extension for it will collectively extract another $86 million from our collective wallets.Barbara Pennington Port CharlotteShut down ObamacareEditor: A letter printed in your Oct. 13th edition was critical of our congressional representative (not identied by name, but of course it is Tom Rooney) for voting to repeal Obamacare without even having a replacement for it. So, what are the chances that Mr. Rooney is actually representing we the people and doing exactly what most of us want? Well, in late September, an AP poll found that only 25 percent of Americans supported Obamacare. In a separate question, 60 percent said that it was more of a failure than a success. And in a Fox News poll conducted at the same time, 55 percent of voters wished that Obamacare hadnt passed and we still had the system that was in place in 2009. In early October, Gallup found that as more of the Obamacare provisions take effect, more Americans still say the law has hurt rather than helped them. And on the same day that the letter criticizing Rooney appeared, Rasmussen Reports told us that number of voters whose insurance coverage has changed because of the new health care law continues to increase, and the vast majority of those voters say the change has been for the worse. If Obamacare continues to do more harm than good, then doesnt it simply make sense to shut it down, all the way down?Kevin Kelly Punta GordaOne penny makes Charlotte betterEditor: The misinformation in many of the letters opposing the penny tax is truly astounding. It makes me wonder if people are really that uninformed or are they intentionally trying to mislead. One letter states that a household making $54,000 a year will pay an extra $500 a year in taxes. Since most households largest expenditures go toward things that are not taxed, such as their mortgage, insurance, food and medicine, there is no way they would pay anywhere near that amount. Another writer states that a person buying a $30,000 vehicle would pay an additional $300 in taxes. The extra penny only applies to the rst $5,000 of any one purchase, so the additional tax would actually be $50. I grew up in Charlotte County and I have witnessed how the penny tax has made our community a better place to live. It has helped build the parks, ball elds, pools, community centers and libraries my family enjoys so much. The almost $6 million brought into our county by the Snowbird Baseball Classic last year would have been lost without the facilities that were built from the extra penny. The penny amenities are what companies look for when deciding whether to move their businesses to a community. Best of all around 30 percent of the monies raised come from visitors. Please dont be fooled by the misinformation being spread by a vocal minority. The extra penny has made Charlotte County a better place.Jimmy Nolan Punta GordaSees no proof of evolutionEditor: The Bible declares: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1 The Urantia Book advocated by a recent column is preposterous. Until recently, never heard of this apostasy supposedly written in 1925 by an unknown author. The writer who believes in the Trinity has the arrogance to degrade our creator by believing Darwinism and that we evolved from apes. Evolution is a theory and cannot be proven. First of all the Bible is the greatest and most published book in the world, is infallible and was inspired by God through the Holy Spirit. We were created in Gods image and Im sure hes not a primate. You want the truth? Its right there in the Bible. Your book is fascinating but a work of ction claiming Jesus was not an atonement for humanity. Even though a third of the book is related to Jesus quite accurately, there are many other fallacies, contradictions and fabrications. The only way to eternity is believing Christ died for your sins on the cross and was resurrected from the dead to everlasting glory. John 14:6 Jesus said, I am the way and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. To the writer, I will ask the Holy Spirit to reveal his absolute truth, the word.Thomas W.

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 IEWPOINTTurnaround thanks to doctor, YMCAEditor:I recently had my yearly physical, and once again came out looking like a pretty healthy granny. I keep counting my blessings, as I have the most wonderful doctor on the face of the Earth. Dr. Mark C. Droffner and his staff are amazing, and I dont think it would be an exagger ation to suggest that I would not be alive today had it not been for him. He explained to me many years ago that I only have this one body, and showed me how to do a turnaround. I learned to see myself as a BMW. I will always mix my fuel and oil accordingly. Eventually I went to the YMCA. Got even more things explained. Wow! They accomplished a miracle for me. A sincere thank you to Dr. D., and my local YMCA. Because of them, I am an energetic woman who has no problem walking at least seven miles a day. And everyone who knows me knows I can pretty much talk for two hours without taking a breath. So, no matter your age, wherever you live, go get a workout at the YMCA. Its good for your body.Joanie Wright Punta GordaVoting yes for tax extensionEditor: Democracy is the most inefcient form of government. Give them as little as possible. Trust, but verify. This works well in a small, cohesive entity such as Punta Gorda. For 10 years, Team Punta Gorda has had a major impact with the coordinated growth of our city. Its looking and feeling much better, and offers a very nice appearance, especially as our airport has brought in more than 750,000 visitors this year. To continue these attractive amenities Punta Gorda needs to continue the 7 percent sales tax. Most projects will continue anyway. Who will pay for them? It will be either homeowners or everyone. I vote for everyone. I also want the checks-and-balances system of Team Punta Gorda to continue. Unfortunately, our sprawling county has no such strong citizen group in place and verication becomes difcult. Weve lost our trust. Two choices: Vote no, punish them, and lose several years of growth. Punishment will not force county government to become more efcient. Projects will continue because residents will demand them, and homeowners taxes will increase. Or, vote yes, then follow it up with more involvement from a citizens group for verication and support. I want to continue our growth. I want more visitors to settle into the undeveloped areas and increase our tax base to the benet of all. I plan to vote yes on the sales tax extension. I will vote no on medical marijuana and no to taking land off the tax rolls.Jerry OHalloran Punta Gorda Deutsch for District 4 seat on commissionIn the Nov. 4 election for District 4 seat on the Char lotte County Commission, incumbent Stephen R. Deutsch faces challenger Don Monroe, who is running with no party afliation. Monroe, a 10-year resident of Charlotte County, is making his rst bid for public ofce and we appreciate his efforts. His political inexperience shows in a campaign that lacks funding and focus. In an editorial board interview with the Sun, Monroe veered from minor pet peeves like parking fees at county beaches to philosophical musings about the constitutional obligations of townships. He hands out copies of George Washingtons Farewell Address to would-be supporters. Although its a nice gesture, were not sure what Washingtons infamously inscrutable writing has to do with Charlotte County. Monroe opposes non-ad valor em property taxes on churches as a 1st Amendment violation, but case law has upheld such payments repeatedly and we disagree that churches should get a pass on paying their share for public safety and infrastructure. We also nd Monroes claim that development becomes destructive to be an oversimplication of a complex economic issue, especially considering Monroe is a licensed real estate agent and a former general contractor in Ohio. We also strongly disagree with Monroes view that there are ways around the Sunshine Law that would make it easier for constituents to meet with multiple commissioners. Deutsch defeated two opponents to win the Republican primary and as we wrote in our endorsement for the election, he has shown himself to be a hard-working, results-oriented public ofcial unafraid to tackle controversial issues. He has championed jump-starting the dormant Murdock Village redevelopment district, arguing that whatever mistakes past commissions made in creating or executing the plan, it is the duty of the current board to make it work on behalf of taxpayers. Deutsch is omnipresent at public and private functions and a willing listener both in and out of his ofce, where he keeps longer and more regular hours than any of his fellow commissioners. A strong believer in consensus-building, Deutsch has been credited with helping to repair relationships with other government entities, including the airport authority and pushed for the establishment of an ombudsman for the community development department to address long-standing complaints about its customer service. Critics of Deutsch may see his high prole and frequent public appearances as self-aggrandizing, but we nd no fault in the ambassadorial role he has assumed. We suspect organizations whose meetings, ceremonies and fundraisers he attends appreciate the presence and/or participation of a county commissioner. Beyond his ofcial duties, Deutsch quietly volunteers his time with other nonprot organizations, including the Charlotte County Family YMCA and the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition. In his second term, we encourage Deutsch to continue his push to make Murdock Village work, to press for progress in the Parkside and Charlotte Harbor community redevelopment agencies and to expand investment in economic and tourism development. The Sun recommends Stephen R. Deutsch in the race for the District 4 seat on the Charlotte County Commission.
The Sun /Saturday, October 18, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 11 VIEWPOINT If the election for Florida governor were held Thursday, less than 24 hours after Fangate or Fanghazi, its likely Democrat Charlie Crist would win his old job back. Not by much, but by the few points afforded to him by Republican Rick Scotts for-thehistory-books petulance. Or maybe not. Maybe there just arent enough undecided voters left in this election to overcome the GOPs historical dominance of midterm elections. But if Scott does end up being the third Republican governor in 20 years to not serve a second term, there are two days that can be pinpointed as the worst of his campaign. Obviously, Wednesday night was one of those days, and not just because of the disagreement over the use of a fan. Scott was completely off his game, something for which Ive been told he prepared extensively. He spoke as if he had marbles in his mouth. He ran over names, numbers, and whole sentences. He implicitly admitted that global warming is real but made a point not to admit humans role in it, as The New Republic points out. Wednesday night, Rick Scott looked like the Republican equivalent of Bill McBride. And thats without Crist being thrown softball questions about the environment, the environment, and, oh, the environment. Im surprised the moderators didnt ask Crist why he was so handsome. Scott was not only blown out in the rst quarter, but he lost the second, third, and fourth quarters as well. It was a horrible day. So horrible that, as the Miami Heralds Marc Caputo rst reported, Republicans/Rick Scott loyalists are telling me the moment he didnt go onstage over fangate was the moment he lost the election. The Republicans who were in attendance at the debate streamed out of Broward Colleges Bailey Hall like they were leaving a funeral. I saw one state representative who traveled to the debate to provide post-game spin for the governor slink off into the night rather than answer reporters questions. Only House Speaker Will Weatherford, channeling his inner Baghdad Bob, said Scott was winning. Back in Tallahassee, among the lobbying corps that has been backing Scott to the hilt, panic is beginning to set in. The Romans can see Attila the Hun at the gates. Even with super majorities in the Florida House and Senate, the Republican establishment, which has dominated the capital since 1995, knows that. It. Will. Never. Be. The. Same. If Crist comes back to town. Privately, more than one Top 20 lobbyist has joked to me how they go about back-dooring a contribution to Crists political committee. Just to hedge my bets, they say nervously. Which brings me to the other worst day of Scotts re-election campaign. It was both eerily similar and entirely different from Wednesday. In my estimation, the other worst day for Scott was the day before the 2014 legislative session and rumor was spreading through Tallahassee like well, it is bad form to use an Ebola metaphor, isnt it? Lets just say rumors were spreading of horrible poll numbers for Scott coming from a statewide business association known to be sympathetic to the governor. These awful poll numbers would make their way to a Caputo column on March 9. many of Scotts fellow Republicans were paying attention to a different set of numbers: a raft of poll data-points that make the GOP queasy because it shows Democrat Charlie Crist has broad support across Florida right now. Theres no way to sugar coat this: Its awful, said a top Florida Republican, one of a dozen who provided or conrmed with the Miami Herald the crosstabs, presentations or individual slices of the polls. Caputo in March now sounds like Caputo in October. In March, Scotts campaign made the smart decision to spend millions of dollars to take a chunk out of Crists ass. That decision buoyed Scotts campaign through the spring and summer. Its not clear if there is enough time or bandwidth in the advertising spectrum for Scott to again buy his way out of losing. Make no mistake, just as Charlie Crists best political friend is The Fan, Scotts closest ally is The Checkbook. Only in Florida can an election come down to a choice between a fan and a bank account. Peter Schorsch is a political consultant and new media publisher based in St. Petersburg. Column courtesy of Context Florida.A bad day for Gov. Rick Scott Guest ColumnistPeter Schorsch This sentence was in the ancient book, The Art of War, written by the Chinese philosopher Sun Tzu. I was in the audience at Wednesday nights now-famous three-way debate between former Florida Governor Charlie Crist, Gov. Rick Scott and the Vornado Circulating Fan. It is now obvious that Crist was taking his cues from the centuries old book on political debating called The Phans of War, supposedly written by another philosopher named Un Tru. Political operatives have been using this book for years. Some (well, most) people dont believe it really exists. But if it did, it might explain some recent behavior. Consider these passages and Crists actions: Deceive your enemy with wind and misdirection. Crist knew that his opponent might make an issue of his desire to stay cool and use a fan during the debate. He has used fans before, even during his regular work day. Crist hates to sweat. When he was asked about whether the rules addressed the use of a fan, he responded Not that I am aware of. Was this true? Maybe. He knew there was a dispute and acting like he was unaware of any of that was misleading. He who enters the eld of battle rst has the advantage of surprise. It doesnt really matter who was right or wrong about whether the rules of the debate allowed Crist to have a fan under his podium. The fact that he chose to walk on the stage before Scott gave him the tactical advantage. Television is a visual medium that provides almost no context to a situation. The image of Crist standing there without Scott is what is burned into our memory now. Care not what uniform you wear, it is the ag you carry to battle and the victory that will be remembered. Crist used to be a Republican, now he is a Democrat. No one is talking about that any more. The fan incident is helping to galvanize his Democratic support. You dont hear many Democrats bemoaning his party switch any more. Its now all about the ght against Scott for them. All warfare is based on perception. In the Art of War, the phrase was all warfare is based on deception but Un Trus concept applies to todays television age. It doesnt matter that Scott was correct that the agreement his people signed with the debate organizers prohibited a fan and the agreement Crists people signed allowed for one. That is nuance and context. There is no room for those things on the modern battleeld. If viewers saw images that looked like Scott was whining about a fan, then that is all people will remember. If you can make the villagers laugh at your opponent, then you will weaken him. From the very rst moment, the fan incident was destined to be a segment of Comedy Centrals The Daily Show. Thursday nights episode of the show opened with the debate debacle and host John Stewart poking fun at Scott. In the court of late night comedy, Scott is denitely the loser. When late night comics make you the butt of their jokes, watch out. The truth is that both candidates thought their agreement supported their opinions about Crists use of the fan. Crists copy of the agreement allowed for it, Scotts did not. That is unfortunate and something for the organizers to discuss. As my 11-year-old said to me when I got back from the debate, Dad, it was just a fan! Scotts folks made a big deal out of it, knowing that the fan thing is something Crist asks for and brings with him to many events, not just debates. Dont know why, maybe he is a Richard Nixon type of perspirer. Both sides were backstage arguing about the fan. One said I wont come out unless I have it. The other said I wont come out if it is there. The two men met on the eld of battle. The important thing is that Crist outmaneuvered Scott by heading to the podium and allowing the image of him standing there waiting for the governor to show up to be the lasting impression. Scott may have the incumbency and millions of dollars but Charlie Crist has years of expe rience as a politician. Knowing what to do in a situation like that is probably instinctual to Crist not so much for Scott. Put simply, Crist saw that he was under attack and used a little Jiu Jitsu on Gov. Scott. And that would make both Sun Tsu and Un Tru proud. Jim Gouvellis is a member of the Lake Wales Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.What now passes for the art of war?

The Sun /Saturday, October 18, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 13 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT The Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce busted a four-per son, Miami-area retail theft ring Thursday afternoon when an alert shopper and his wife spotted the suspects at Cocoplum Village Shops and called police, authorities said. According to a report, the man and three women Moises Eskenazi, 56, and Olga Graciela Eskenazi, 59, from Homestead, Fla.; and Felicita L. Henriquez, 55; and Vanessa Estela Equsquiza, 37, of Miami were seen in the parking lot outside the North Port Ross Dress for Less, removing items hidden under their clothing. When a sheriffs deputy arrived, the witnesses pointed out the suspects and the vehicle they then got into. As the deputy attempted the get behind their car to block it, the suspects made an evasive maneuver, the report states. Once the deputy stopped the car, and while speaking with the driver, Moises, he noticed the two women in the back seat Henriquez and Equsquiza tearing price tags from items they were taking from large garbage bags at their feet. Olga, in the front seat, also had a garbage bag lled with merchandise with her. The deputy asked Moises to step out of the car and present his ID, according to the report. What Moises handed him, however, was an identication card from another country. He also told the deputy he didnt have a U.S. license or a passport, and that he didnt know what was in the bags. Moises then gave the deputy permission to search the car. During his search, the report states the deputy saw multiple Ross tags ripped from clothing, along with three large trash bags lled with items. In the trunk were two very large duffel bags, also full of clothing from Ross and T.J. Maxx. A loss-prevention ofcer from Ross came to the scene and noted 70 items worth $2,248. Seventy-two pieces of merchandise taken from T.J. Maxx likely from the Fort Myers store, the report states were valued at $2,039. After viewing video-surveillance footage from Ross, authorities determined all four suspects had removed anti-theft devices while in store tting rooms. Ninety-ve percent of the items stolen including purses, shoes, brand-name clothing and personal hygiene products had anti-theft devices removed. Once at the Sarasota County Jail, the four suspects were found to be wearing compression clothing under their regular clothes to aid in the thefts, the report shows. All four were charged with grand theft, theft while coordinating with others, and the use of an antishoplifting control device countermeasure; the charges carry a $4,500 bond. Moises also was charged with driving without a license, which carries an additional $120 bond. Henriquez and Equsquiza both have prior charges for grand theft. Olga, in addition to also having been charged with grand theft previously, has an alias, Peralta Carmen. The Eskenazis and Equsquiza all bonded out of the jail at 1 p.m. Friday. Henriquez is being held on a Broward County warrant for violating her probation, in relation to a previous third-degree grand theft charge, according to Kaitlyn Johnston, SCSO spokeswoman. Sheriffs deputies were providing coverage of the city Thursday afternoon because North Port police ofcers were attending the funeral of NPPD Sgt. Scott Graham at San Pedro Catholic Church, Johnston conrmed.Email: email@example.comFour charged in retail theft ringBy ANNE KLOCKENKEMPERSTAFF WRITER HENRIQUEZ M. ESKENAZI EQUSQUIZA D.

Melanie Gagnon, a member of the PTO, said the fundraiser used to be door-to-door magazine sales, which has been steadily in decline since the economic downturn. It was getting harder and harder to ask people to spend money on magazines, she said. (But this event is) not only a fundraiser its a fun day. Now were also going to be able to give something back to the kids. Co-chairwomen of the event, PTO secretary Jodi McBee and president Elizabeth Tietsworth, said they usually had less than 30 percent participation in magazine sales, but more than 50 percent turned out Friday. Theyre hopeful they had raised more money, which had not been tallied by Friday night. They were thankful to Charlotte High School volunteers who ran many of the activities for them. Its my pleasure to come out and have some fun, said Alexander DePaul, who volunteered for the football throw. DePaul, who wore his blue jersey No. 25, is a varsity player for the Tarpons football team. He is also a member of the National Honor Society at CHS. Throughout the school day, kids in different grades rotated in and out of the schools Field Day for nearly two hours of playtime, according to Tietsworth. Sherly PierreLuis, a parent of a sixth-grader, said this time is needed. Kids need a little time to themselves to be children, to run around and play, she said. Even though theyre in middle school, a little bit of recess is still good for them.Email: email@example.comDIZZYFROM PAGE 1 Left: Taylor Oeinck, 14, a cheerleader for the Charlotte Warriors, enjoyed hulahooping at Punta Gorda Middle Schools rst Field Day.SUN PHOTO BY SOMMER BROKAWAbove: Teacher Bill Steelnack gets dunked by one of his students. races, and live music from the Trop Rock Junkies. Proceeds raised will go toward the afliates fundraising goal of $75,000, as part of its annual fundraising campaign. Seventy-ve per cent of the net proceeds raised stay in Southwest Florida to fund breast health services for individuals who have no health insurance or who are underinsured. The other 25 percent of net proceeds are used to fund research. For the 2014-15 scal year alone, Komen Southwest Florida awarded $580,000 through its Community Grants program to 10 nonprot organizations throughout the ve-county area of Charlotte, Lee, Collier, Glades and Hendry counties, according to Amber Nelson, communications director. Community Grants funding provides uninsured and underinsured individuals with services such as mammograms, all the way through to ultrasounds, lumpectomies and mastectomies, if needed. In Charlotte County for the same scal year, it granted $121,046 to three agencies: Family Health Centers of Southwest Florida, Lymphedema Resources Inc. and the Virginia B. Andes Volunteer Community Clinic. Virginia B. Andes uses the money to help patients receive mammograms and follow-up diagnostics. It also has a Breast Health Navigator that routes nancially eligible individuals to diagnostic and treatment centers. Family Health Centers provides early detection, along with community outreach and education services. Lymphedema is a potential side effect of breast cancer that may cause swelling of the arms, legs and toes. Komen funds Lymphedema Resources massage therapy and compression garments. The grant-making foundation has provided breast health and cancer services to Lee and Collier counties since 2002, and expanded to cover Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties in 2008. Nancy Brinker started the national organization, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, as a promise to her dying sister, who spent her time thinking of ways to make life better for other women with breast cancer. Although Susan died from the disease, the legacy of her work lives on.Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgCANCERFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY SOMMER BROKAWTish Sheesley, mission events director with Susan G.

The stepped-up scrutiny of the international response came as U.S. ofcials rushed to cut off potential routes of infection from three cases in Texas, reaching a cruise ship in the Caribbean and multiple domestic airline ights. Republican lawmakers and the Obama administration debated the value of restricting travelers from entering the U.S. from countries where the outbreak began, without a resolution. But with Secretary of State John Kerry renewing pleas for a collective, global response to a disease that has already killed more than 4,500 people in Africa, the WHO draft report pointed to serious errors by an agency designated as the international communitys leader in coordinating response to outbreaks of disease.

But French President Francois Hollande welcomed the good news and told a news conference in Paris that the girls release could happen in the coming hours and days. France has been involved in negotiations that led to the release of several of its citizens kidnapped by Boko Haram in Cameroon. Neither Hollande nor Nigerian government officials gave any details.

TALLAHASSEE No matter who wins Floridas brawl for governor there may be one clear loser: The truth. In the lead up to the Nov. 4 election, voters have been hit with a barrage of television ads that so far have totaled more than $40 million. In those ads, as well as on the campaign trail, Republican Gov. Rick Scott and his Democratic rival Charlie Crist have engaged in a stream of misstatements, half-truths and distortions. Dan Smith, a political science professor at the University of Florida, said candidates have good reasons to mislead voters. In a state where millions of people will vote, theres a good chance that many people dont have time to delve into whether a candidate is fudging the facts. More people are going to see the 30-second ad than read the ne print, Smith said. The fact of the matter is those messages resonate and they stick with the voters. The toll of the negative ads is likely a key reason that recent polls have shown that many voters nd Scott and Crist untrustworthy. Yet the ads keeping coming. Some of the misleading information includes: An ad from Republicans said Crist is responsible for letting one of Floridas largest power companies charge customers for nuclear power plants that were never built. The nuclear cost recovery fee was created while Gov. Jeb Bush was in ofce. The ad makes it sound as if Scott stopped the fee and protected ratepayers. Thats not quite true either. Scott signed a bill that altered how long the fee can be collected, but it didnt eliminate the fee nor did it require power companies to Analysis: Florida voters misled with half-truthsBy GARY FINEOUTASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERVOTERS | 4 CRIST SCOTT d LSTOP.

Page 2 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Saturday, October 18, 2014 NATIONAL/WORLD NEWS HOUSTON (Bloomberg) Oil traders might see the 27 percent slide in global prices as a bear market. For U.S. consumers, its more like an early holiday gift. The drop in crude has pulled retail gasoline down more than 50 cents a gallon from the years high in April. That means annual savings of $500 for the aver age U.S. household, which consumes about 1,000 gallons of fuel a year, according to data from the Federal Highway Administration and Energy Information Administration. Thats like somebody putting dollars right in your pocket, David Hackett, the president of Stillwater Associates, an energy consultant in Irvine, Calif., said by phone on Oct. 14. That sounds like Christmas presents, going out to dinner, being able to do something. Gasolines slide represents the biggest benet that U.S. consumers have seen to date from a record boom in domestic oil production, a surge thats contributing to a global crude glut and helping reduce international prices. U.S. gasoline is being exported at record levels for this time of year. The average retail price fell 1.9 cents to $3.144 a gallon, Heathrow, Fla.based motoring group AAA said on its website. Thats down from this years peak of $3.696 in April and the lowest since February 2011. Futures have decreased 86 cents on the New York Mercantile Exchange over the same period, signaling there may be further declines at the pump. Prices are falling with U.S. oil output at the highest level since 1985 and the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries producing the most in more than a year. At the same time, the Paris-based International Energy Agency lowered its estimate for global demand growth for this year and next in an Oct. 14 report. Americans are spending about $230 million a day less on gasoline than they were on July 4, based on prices and consumption, said Michael Green, a Washington-based spokesman for AAA, the countrys biggest motor ing group.Shale boom helping American consumers | NATIONNo sign of Ebola among nurses Ohio contactsCOLUMBUS, Ohio (Bloomberg) None of the individuals who may have come into contact with an Ebola-infected nurse in Ohio are showing signs of illness, health ofcials said Friday.

Abbas made the comments following recent clashes between Palestinian worshippers and Israeli forces over what Palestinians see as Jewish encroachment on the site, known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary. Abbas said Jews should be prevented from entering the site by any means, adding that this is our Noble Sanctuary they have no right to enter and desecrate it. Palestinians also say Israel is unfairly restricting access at the site. Israel limited male Muslim worshippers this past week to those 50 years old and older due to recent violence there.Iraq imposes curfew in Ramadi, fearing militantsBAGHDAD (AP) Iraq imposed a curfew in the western city of Ramadi on Friday amid fears that the Islamic State group was looking to advance on the strategically important city as attacks in Baghdad killed 21 people, ofcials said. The curfew, which began before dawn, is part of an effort to limit movement in and out of the city as government forces prepared to combat pockets of resistance there, said Sabah Karhout, the chairman of the Anbar provincial council.

Dylan Maxwell was on vacation on the Indonesian island of Bali when the tiny creature burrowed through a small appendix scar and traveled up his torso, leaving a red scar-like trail from his navel to his chest. Lifting his shirt, Maxwell told an Australian television network thats where it actually burrowed underneath my skin. While still in Bali, Maxwell visited a local medical center and was prescribed an antihistamine for an insect bite.

The Sun /Saturday, October 18, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 3 STATE NEWS JACKSONVILLE (AP) A Florida man convicted of first-degree murder for fatally shooting a teenager in an ar gument over loud music outside a Jacksonville convenience store was sentenced Friday to life in prison without parole. The life sentence imposed by Circuit Judge Russell Healey was mandatory for 47-year-old Michael Dunn after prosecutors decided not to seek the death penalty. Mr. Dunn, your life is effectively over, Healey said. What is sad ... is that this case exemplies that our society seems to have lost its way. Dunn was convicted of first-degree murder at a second trial in September after jurors deadlocked on the charge at his initial trial in February. Prosecutors say Dunn, who is white, fired 10 times into a sport utility vehicle carrying black teenagers in November 2012 and killed 17-yearold Jordan Davis of Marietta, Ga. Evidence showed that Dunn, of Satellite Beach, red the shots during a heated argument over the volume of music coming from the SUV carrying Davis and three other teenagers. Dunn was convicted of three counts of second-degree murder in his rst trial because he continued to re into the Dodge Durango as the driver tried to ee. Healey on Friday sentenced him to a minimum of 60 years in prison for those charges, to be served consecutively with the life sentence. Dunn, who testied at both trials, claimed he acted in self-defense. Dunn told jurors that he saw Davis roll down the window and ash what he believed to be a gun after the two exchanged words. He contended that he kept ring at the eeing SUV to make sure no one shot back at him. At Fridays sentencing hearing, Dunn apologized to Davis parents. I want the Davis family to know that I truly regret what happened. If I could roll back time and do things differently, I would, he said. I am mortified that I took a life whether it was a justified or not. Supporters of Jordan Davis and his family lled rows of the courtroom, and many broke into tears, sometimes sobs, as his parents and other family members told Healey how devastating his death had been.Florida man gets life in prison for killing teen over loud music AP PHOTOMichael Dunn returns to his seat after reading his statement, which included an apology to the Davis family, during his sentencing hearing Friday at the Duval County Courthouse in Jacksonville. | STATEScott asks CDC for more help on Ebola preparationDAVIE (AP) Gov. Rick Scott asked federal ofcials Friday to add Florida airports to the list of the ve around the country that have stepped up security to monitor travelers who may be carrying Ebola.

Some Haitians to legally enter USMIAMI (Miami Herald) Thousands of Haitians who have been waiting to reunite with U.S. citizens and lawful permanent resident family members in the United States will now have a chance to do so up to two years before their immigrant visa for a green card may be issued.

St. Petersburg police said Friday that they arrested a 28-year-old homeless man. He is accused of stealing the plumbing from Cracker Barrel, Burger King, Bob Evans and other restaurants. Police released a photo of a pile of metal toilet parts that they say Brian Rinda stole. Police say Rinda caused about $1,000 in damage and traded the brass valve and piping at a county recycling center. Rinda was charged with eight counts of grand theft and one count of petit theft.

During an Orlando campaign appearance and again during their rst debate, Crist ripped into Scott for invoking his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination and refusing to answer questions 75 times during the federal criminal investigation into Scotts former health care company. The probe resulted in a $1.7 billion ne to settle allegations of Medicare fraud. Scott pleaded the Fifth during a lawsuit deposition unrelated to the criminal investigation. Crist has repeatedly blamed Scott for signing a bill that he says deregulated Floridas insurance industry. The bill Scott signed, however, dealt only with health insurance, but Crist has linked the legislation to property insurance hikes he says have happened under Scotts watch. Scotts new hard-hitting ad that calls Crist a corrupt politician by citing his ties to people convicted of crimes, including calling convicted Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein his biggest donor. While Rothstein and his law rm gave large donations to the GOP of Florida when Crist, as a Republican, preceded Scott as governor, there were plenty of other donors. That same ad also links Crist to a failed economic development deal involving Digital Domain, a movie special effects company. The ad quotes a lawsuit led on behalf of the Scott administration that called the deal a de facto Ponzi scheme. But the ad doesnt note that Scotts own inspector general concluded that no laws were broken. One of the most notable ads featured a Rothstein victim saying he had been swindled by both Rothstein and Crist. The Scott campaign initially refused to disclose any information about the ad, including the victims identity. The Miami Herald identied the man as a Fort Lauderdale investor, but reported he never made any allegations about Crist in his successful lawsuit to recover millions of dollars in Rothstein-related losses. Dean Kretschmar represented by an attorney whos a major Scott backer recouped most of the $8 million he personally gave Rothstein as part of an investment group. After the Herald noted the ads misleading nature, the Scott campaign maintained that Crist swindled Kretschmar and other campaign donors because he switched parties and changed his political stances, which was never mentioned in the ad. The candidates themselves arent apologizing or even acknowledging misleading statements. Im going to tell the truth and be straight with the people of Florida because he isnt, Crist said. Asked whether his own statements on Scotts Fifth Amendment actions were misleading, Crist replied not at all. Because the way you answer questions in a civil or criminal deposition can be used either in a civil or criminal action.VOTERSFROM PAGE 1 Marshal Alex Badeh, announced the truce Friday and ordered his troops to immediately comply with the agreement. Already, the terrorists have announced a cease-re in furtherance of their desire for peace. In this regard, the government of Nigeria has, in similar vein, declared a cease-re, Omeri said. But there was no immediate word from Boko Haram, which limits its public engagement to video announcements by its leader, Abubakar Shekau. Last year, when a government minister charged with negotiations announced an agreement, the group quickly published a video with Shekau denying it. He said at that time that whoever the government negotiated with did not speak for him, and that he would never talk to infidels. The United States, which had sent a team including hostage negotiators to help free the girls, said it could not confirm a ceasefire. We cannot independently confirm that at this point, deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf told a news confer ence in Washington. Boko Haram the groups nickname means education is sinful drew international condemnation with the April kidnapping of 276 girls and young women at a boarding school in the remote northeastern town of Chibok. Dozens escaped in the first couple of days, but 219 remain missing. It could take days for word of a cease-re to get to ghters of Boko Haram, which is broken into several groups. They include foreigners from neighboring countries Chad, Cameroon and Niger, where the insur gents also have camps. Omeri confirmed there had been direct negotiations this week about the release of the abducted girls. Another official said the talks took place in Chad with Danladi Ahmadu, who was identified as the Saudi Arabia-based secretary general of Boko Haram. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to talk to reporters. But two people involved in previous negotiations with the extremists said they had never heard of Ahmadu. Both spoke on condition their names were not published because of the sensitivity of the issue. Doubts also were expressed on Twitter by Ahmad Salkida, a Saudibased Nigerian journalist living in self-exile because of his links with top leaders of Boko Haram. Salkida suggested the cease-fire announcement was a political ploy as President Goodluck Jonathan prepares to announce he will run again for the presidency in February elections. Boko Haram leaders are miffed, Salkida tweeted, that people are being easily encased in deceit.NIGERIAFROM PAGE 1 the border with Turkey, to concentrate on their second front in Iraq. The Observatory said the planes, seen ying over the Jarrah air base in the countryside of Aleppo province in eastern Syria this week, are believed to be MiG-21 and MiG-23 jets. Rami Abdurrahman, director of the Observatory, said the planes have been ying at a low altitude, apparently to avoid being detected by Syrian military radar in the area. He described the ights as a moral victory for the Islamic State group, saying the jets could not y much further without being knocked down by the (international) coalition. The report on the IS ights in Aleppo added yet another layer of complexity to the Mideast crisis in the wake of the onslaught by the Islamic State militants. The U.S. and its allies are bombing IS bases in Syria and Iraq, where the extremists have seized large swaths of territory. During its blitz, the Islamic State group is known to have seized ghter jets from at least one air base it captured from the Syrian army in the eastern Raqqa province earlier this year. Militant websites had posted pictures of IS ghters posing next to the ghter jets, but it was unclear if they were operational. Abdurrahman said Islamic State members were being trained by Iraqi ofcers who had joined the group and who were once pilots under Saddam Hussein. In January, Islamic State militants also captured the Jarrah air base in Syria after bitter clashes with rival extremists and Syrian rebel groups. A mix of several Islamic rebel groups battling Syrian President Bashar Assad including al-Qaidas Syrian branch, the Nusra Front had seized the base from government troops in early 2013. Gen. Lloyd Austin, the top U.S. commander for the Middle East, said he has no operational reports of IS militants ying jets in support of their forces on the ground. Austin, the head of U.S. Central Command who is directing the ght in Iraq and Syria, told Pentagon reporters that he also has no information about Iraqi pilots defecting to IS. However, an Iraqi intelligence ofcial said the government in Baghdad is aware of several ex-Iraqi military ofcers going to Syria to train militants with the Islamic State group. The militants acquired war planes from al-Tabaqa air base in Syria but did not get any when they toppled the Iraqi military in Mosul, said the ofcial, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to media.PILOTSFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOThis undated image posted on Aug. 27 by the Raqqa Media Center of the Islamic State group, a Syrian opposition group, which has been veried and is consistent with other AP reporting, shows a ghter of the Islamic State group waving the groups ag from a damaged display of a govern ment ghter jet following the battle for the Tabqa air base, in Raqqa, Syria. in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea last spring, blaming factors including incompetent staff and a lack of information. Its own experts failed to grasp that traditional infectious disease containment methods wouldnt work in a region with porous borders and broken health systems, the report found. Nearly everyone involved in the outbreak response failed to see some fairly plain writing on the wall, WHO said in the report, obtained by The Associated Press. A perfect storm was brewing, ready to burst open in full force. The agencys own bureaucracy was part of the problem, the report found. It pointed out that the heads of its country ofces in Africa are politically motivated appointments made by the WHO regional director for Africa, Dr. Luis Sambo, who does not answer to the agencys chief in Geneva, Dr. Margaret Chan. After WHO declared Ebola an international health emergency in August, U.N. SecretaryGeneral Ban Ki-moon stepped in and had the United Nations take overall responsibility for ghting and eliminating the virus, among other things setting up an emer gency response mission based in Ghana. Dr. Peter Piot, the co-discoverer of the Ebola virus, agreed that WHO acted far too slowly. Its the regional ofce in Africa thats the front line, said Piot, inter viewed at his ofce in London. And they didnt do anything. That ofce is really not competent. WHO declined to comment on the document, which was not issued publicly, and said that Chan would be unavailable for an interview with the AP. She did tell Bloomberg News that she was not fully informed of the evolution of the outbreak. We responded, but our response may not have matched the scale of the outbreak and the complexity of the outbreak. Meanwhile, Obama moved to step up the U.S. response to the disease, naming Ron Klain, a former chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden, as the administrations point man on Ebola. Klain is a longtime Democratic operative who also served as a top aide to Vice President Al Gore. He does not have any medical or public health expertise. But the White House said he would serve as Ebola response coordinator, suggesting his key role will be to synchronize the actions of many government agencies in combatting the disease.BUNGLEFROM PAGE 1 WASHINGTON (AP) Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen sounded an alarm Friday about widening economic inequality in the United States, suggesting that Americas longstanding identity as a land of opportunity was at stake. The growing gap between the rich and everyone else narrowed slightly during the Great Recession but has since accelerated, Yellen said in a speech at a conference in Boston on economic opportunity. And robust stock market returns during the recovery helped the wealthy outpace middle-class America in wages, employment and home prices. The extent and continuing increase in inequality in the United States greatly concerns me, Yellen said. By some estimates, income and wealth inequality are near their highest levels in the past hundred years. Yellens extensive comments on economic inequality marked an unusual public depar ture for a Fed chair. Her predecessors as head of the U.S. central bank tended to focus exclusively on the core Fed issues of interest rates, ination and unemployment. Indeed, the Feds mandate doesnt explicitly include issues like income or wealth disparities. But since taking over from Ben Bernanke in February, Yellen has made clear she is deeply con cerned about the nancial challenges that ordinary workers and families face. Throughout this year, she has stressed the need for the Fed to keep rates low to boost economic expansion and hiring. She has said that the unemployment rate, now at 5.9 percent, doesnt fully reect the health of the job market: Yellen has expressed concern, for example, about stagnant incomes, the number of part-time workers who want full-time jobs and the many people who have given up their job searches and are no longer counted as unemployed.Yellen: Greatly concerned by inequality aaaaQ'olo009OoBJ'.; ',i-J_, :.4oc99fB4di9

JustthispastApril,EnergyFuture 2014THEMOTLEYFOOL/DIST.BYUNIVERSALUCLICK10/16 Dear Mr. Berko: In January 2013, I had a $2,050 cash balance in my individual retirement account from a preferred stock that was partially called away. So I bought 200 shares of RR Donnelley at $8.75 because the stock paid a $1.04 dividend that yielded almost 12 percent. It has now doubled, and I am thinking of buying 300 shares for our joint account with the money from a $5,000 certicate of deposit that comes due next week. Now the stock pays a 6.9 percent yield. WP, Joliet, Ill. Dear WP: R.R. Donnelley & Sons Co. (RRD-$15), founded in 1864, developed and printed the Chicago City Directory. This $11.6 billion-revenue company the largest commercial printer in the world, with over 60,000 customers prints and binds most of the nations publications, including Time, Newsweek and TV Guide. And most food, health and beauty products, beverages and packaged products have labels that are Donnelleyprinted, as are most ofce forms and nancial documents. RRDs ink-on-paper business has been in secular decline. Still, during the past decade, RRD has engineered over 18 acquisitions names such as Banta, EDGAR Online, Consolidated Graphics, OfceTiger, Wallace Moore, etc. bringing in nearly $2.3 billion of new revenue. If it can be printed with ink on paper, RR Donnelley will do it better. CEO Thomas TJ Quinlan III intends to diversify RRD beyond IOP printing revenues, which were 70 percent of revenues 10 years ago, and is moving RRD toward the emerging new eld of printed electronics. This is a relatively new technology in which printers use layers upon layers of electrically conductive inks to produce a precisely determined thickness. RRDs rst product, antennas for passive radio-frequency identication and neareld communication tags (this is a $9 billion market), went into production early this year. Donnelleys 2014 earnings of $1.60 will be lower than last years $1.69. However, share income for 2015 is expected to come in around $1.75 to $1.80. Revenue and income growth may be modest for several years, and share growth will remain modest until RRDs new high-tech printing business begins to gain traction. As long as you realize that this is a speculative issue, I dont have a problem with your purchase of 300 shares of RRD. As a long-term investment, RRD could trade at the $25-$28 level in the coming three to four years. And if interest rates continue to remain low, a 6.9 percent return is attractive while you wait for those potential capital gains. RRD, which has substantial institutional ownership, could be a sleeper. And make certain that you reinvest the dividends.

They form their all-important, rst impressions from the listing photos. Here are some things you can do to enhance the quality of the photos prior to the photo shoot. The sophistication of the shoot ranges from the Realtor who snaps photos with a cellphone to a professional photographer using high-end cameras, special lenses and lighting equipment. These tips apply to all settings. Regardless of the time of day, turn on every light you can, inside and out. This includes everything the microwave surface light, night lights, shower lights, etc. Light and airy is very much in vogue. The interior lights enhance this effect, balance the lighting between brighter and darker areas, and create warm, glowing focal points. You can further enhance the light balance by opening blinds or curtains that block the natural light from entering the room. Opening blinds and curtains has another benet. It brings the outdoor views inside. Consider a photo of the living room where closed blinds hide the sliders. The photo becomes innitely more enticing if it also showcases the view through the sliders of a sparkling pool overlooking a fairway, waterway, open space, etc. If the home has a pool, remove any self-cleaning hoses, etc. Turn the pool pump on. A good camera, or even a well-positioned cellphone camera, will capture the splashing of the water making the photo much more dynamic. Done right, the photo will make you want to jump in. Turn on the ceiling fans. They, too, will make the photos more dynamic. The exception is a high-end fan where you want to showcase decorative detail. Place all personal bathroom effects out of sight. This means everything! Toothbrushes, hand lotion, shower stuff, sponges, etc. You want the buyers to visualize themselves enjoying the master bath, not a stranger. Likewise, clear the kitchen counters of everything you can toasters, blenders, decorative items, etc. You want to highlight the counter space, not hide it. Yes, its inconvenient. But have you noticed that you never see this stuff in model homes? By the way, these tips also apply to preparing your home for showings. One of the most important tips is this: Leave during photo shoots and showings. Professional photographers have a system for moving rapidly from room to room. They shoot through windows and mirrors, often using wide angle lenses. Its very difcult to hide from the roving camera. Its even more important you leave for showings. The presence of the owner creates an uncomfortable sense of tension that diverts the buyers attention from exploring the home to avoiding the owner. I cant emphasize this enough. From experience, I would expect a listing where the sellers are present for showings will take two to three times as long to sell. Guess what? We saved the hardest but most important task for last. Before you photograph or show your home, declutter it. Many folks delay this until their house is sold and its time to pack. That makes no sense. Heres another way to look at it. Whether you de-clutter and pack away the items you dont use regularly now, or after you sell your home, you will eventually do it either way. So why not do it before you list your home? Your home will sell quicker, it will sell for more money, and youll set the pace.

The Dow Jones industrial average soared more than 250 points following strong earnings from Morgan Stanley, General Electric and Textron as well as some encouraging U.S. economic reports. It was the latest big move for a market which, with a few exceptions, has been on a mostly downward track. Stocks have had four weeks of declines, leaving the Standard & Poors 500 index 6 percent below the record high it set Sept. 18. Investors have been riding wild market swings for much of the week. The Dow Jones industrial average plunged as much as 460 points Wednesday, then had one of its best days of the year on Friday. We had indiscriminate selling all week, and then today we had indiscriminate buying, said Jack Ablin, chief investment ofcer at BMO Private Bank in Chicago. Market watchers have warned investors to expect more volatility than they have been used to in recent months, reecting the heightened concerns about weaker growth in Europe and what it could mean for U.S. corporate prots, as well as plunging oil prices. The turmoil has not been limited to the oor of the New York Stock Exchange. Bonds, overseas stock markets and commodities prices have all had big moves this week. The Dow Jones industrial average advanced 263.17 points, or 1.6 percent, to 16,380.41 Friday. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 24 points, or 1.3 percent, to 1,886.76 and the Nasdaq composite rose 41.05 points, or 1 percent, to 4,258.44.Wall Street has dramatic week ................................................................ ........................

Page 7 VENICE 5 LARGO 3Indians Beau Perkins blocks punt for safety to seal win. Page 8 PUNTA GORDA The District 7A-11 picture got a whole lot clearer on Friday night. Charlotte hung with undefeated Fort Myers for nearly four quar ters, but came up short in a 31-21 loss at the Wallace Keller Sports Complex. The win gave Fort Myers the district title, while the Tarpons loss dropped them into a tie for second place with rival Port Charlotte, which beat Riverdale Friday night. The rivals will play for the runner-up playoff spot on Halloween. Weve got to keep moving forward, Charlotte coach Binky Waldrop said after his teams second straight loss. We lost to a good football team tonight; we came out here and fought hard, played hard. We didnt play a bad game, we got beat by a good football team. If the Tarpons could have completed a couple of crucial fourth downs, they might have been the ones leaving the eld in the drivers seat of the district. Late in the third quarter, trailing 21-14, the Tarpons attempted to convert a fourth-and-1 from their own 32-yard line. Quarterback Brennan Simms tried to push through a pile of lineman, just as he had done for a touchdown in the rst quarter, but was stuffed by the Green Waves front line.SUN PHOTO BY JENNIFER BRUNOCharlotte High Schools Trevor Laurent catches a pass in front of Fort Myers George Davis and Tyrone Davis to give the Tarpons rst-and-goal during Fridays game in Punta Gorda.JUST OUT OF REACHTarpons clipped by Green Wave, who win district By ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITER LOS ANGELES In the middle of Andrew Friedmans introduction as the Los Angeles Dodgers president of baseball operations, a question was asked from a corner of the room. Are you looking to acquire a younger, faster, stronger rst baseman? someone queried. Friedman swiveled his head to see who was speaking, and then he laughed. The question came from incumbent rst baseman Adrian Gonzalez, who lives in Southern California during the offseason. Gonzalez can count on other outsiders being brought in under Friedman, who plans to hire a new general manager and to retain Don Mattingly as manager. Friedman was introduced at Dodger Stadium on Friday, and he said hes having conversations about hiring a GM to work under him but offered no timetable. Ned Colletti was shifted from the GM job to senior adviser to team president and CEO Stan Kasten. A 37-year-old former Wall Street analyst, Friedman was hired this week from the Tampa Bay Friedman plans to keep Mattingly MLB: L.A. DodgersBy BETH HARRISASSOCIATED PRESS COMING SUNDAYRob Shore takes a look at Andrew Friedmans biggest hits and misses with the Tampa Bay Rays.DODGERS | 3 At the height of Tebow-mania during his tenure with the Denver Broncos, you couldnt turn on ESPN or sports talk radio, pick up the newspaper or browse the Internet without seeing Tim Tebow. He was everywhere. From ESPN video montages to Saturday Night Live skits to the Twitter sensation of Tebowing, you couldnt escape him. You dont see anyone Winstoning, do you? More like wincing: Its almost painful to watch Florida States Jameis Winstons behavior. Tebow was everywhere for the right reasons. He played hard, winning a Heisman Trophy and two national championships with the University of Florida. His stock rose after he replaced an ineffective Kyle Orton and led the Broncos on an unlikely run to the playoffs. All he did was win, ESPN analyst Skip Bayless liked to say. Off the eld, he prayed hard and shared his faith, offering a positive role model in a world where kids desperately need more of them. He has done countless charity work, been on missionary trips to the Philippines FSUs Winston is the anti-Tebow COLLEGE FOOTBALL: CommentaryAP PHOTOFlorida State quarterback Jameis Winston garners almost as much media attention as former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, but despite his success Winston seems to be in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. MSTEVENS@SUN-HERALD.COMMattSTEVENSASSISTANT SPORTS EDITORSTEVENS | 5 Dogs secure district titleBy JOSH VITALESPORTS WRITERBRADENTON Cesar Barajas waved both hands above his head, imploring the crowd to make noise. He was lined up for what amounted to be a game-winning extra point in overtime, and he wanted to hear support from the DeSoto County High School fans that made had made the trip from Arcadia. The sophomore kicker had missed two field goals earlier in the game, and he had just watched Southeast kicker Ricardo Rodriguez miss an extra point, so no one likely would have blamed him for being nervous. But Barajas didnt allow himself to be nervous. Instead, he drilled the extra point through the uprights, clinching DeSoto Countys 21-20 overtime victory over Southeast and sending the Bulldogs rushing onto the field in celebration at John Kiker Memorial Stadium. The win gave the Bulldogs the District 5A-13 title. The first rule of kicking is never be scared, Barajas said. Always go in with confidence, and dont be afraid to execute. Because if you do, then youre just going to choke every time.

LAS VEGAS Andrew Putnam birdied two of the last three holes Friday for a 6-under 65 and a share of the second-round lead with Russell Knox in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Putnam is playing his fourth PGA Tour event. He earned his tour card this year through the Web.com Tour. It was a good round, said Putnam, who birdied all three par 5s. I started off slow, one bogey, but played good out there. I played the par 5s well today, was able to take advantage of those. Knox, from Scotland, had a 67 to match Putnam at 10-under 132 at TPC Summerlin. Knox had six birdies and two bogeys on Nos. 2 and 3 in the second round. I got a bit worried, though, because I was all over the map, Knox said. I didnt feel real good with my swing, and I knew if I just made some pars, eventually something would click. And I made a couple putts, which really settled me down. Andrew Svoboda and Tony Finau were a stroke back. Finau shot 65, and Svoboda had a 67. Stenson reaches quarters at World Match Play: In Ash, England, top-seeded Henrik Stenson defeated Thongchai Jaidee 2 and 1 to reach the quarter finals undefeated after the opening three rounds of the World Match Play Championship. Stenson sealed the win when his wedge shot into the 17th green spun back into the hole for birdie on the London Club course. He finished with an eagle and six birdies on the final day of round-robin play and will play fellow Swede Jonas Blixt in the quarterfinals today. Thongchai, last years runner-up, was eliminated. American Ryder Cup player Patrick Reed also advanced after beating Jamie Donaldson 3 and 2, and will play George Coetzee of South Africa. Els celebrates birthday with lead: Ernie Els grabbed control of the Hong Kong Open with a two-stroke lead at the halfway mark by carding a 5-under-par 65 on his birthday. Els, who turned 45, has a 9-under total of 131 to lead Raphael Jacquelin of France and Australians Scott Hend and Cameron Smith by two shots on the Fanling Course at Hong Kong Golf Club. The course is there for the taking. I feel I can win this, said Els, in the midst of his first Hong Kong Open. The four-time major winner is going for his first win of the year. Frenchwoman leads LPGA in South Korea: Karine Icher of France shot a 4-under 68 in the second round to take a one-stroke lead at the top of the European-dominated leaderboard at the KEB-HanaBank Championship. Icher birdied three of her final four holes for a 5-under 139 total on the Ocean Course at the Sky72 Golf Club in Incheon, South Korea. Brittany Lincicome of the United States, who birdied her final two holes for a 70, and Beatriz Ricari of Spain (70), were tied for second. The wind subsided but Icher said she played a completely different course in the second round because of the changing wind directions. Haas, Durant top Champions Tour leaderboard: Jay Haas and Joe Durant shot 8-under 63 to share the first-round lead in the Champions Tours Greater Hickory Kia Classic in Conover, N.C. The 60-year-old Haas, the 2005 and 2009 champion, had an eagle and seven birdies on the first 14 holes, dropped a stroke on the par-4 15th and closed with two pars. The former Wake Forest player won the last of his 16 Champions Tour titles in June 2012. Durant had his best score since joining the 50-and-over tour in April. He rebounded from two early bogeys with eight birdies and an eagle on Rock Barn Golf and Spas Champions Course.

San Francisco, in the midst of a ve-year run that can be characterized as either impressive or unlikely, put away St. Louis in ve games. Busch Stadium waited to welcome all those fans in red this weekend, the Cardinals still alive. Alas, it will sit quiet and empty. But get inside the series, and inside these games, and the notion of a blowout sounds absurd. Felt like a dogght, St. Louis Manager Mike Matheny said late Thursday night, and he would get no argument, anywhere. You know, I actually, for the rst time, started to see some gray in my facial hair, said Giants reliever Jeremy Affeldt, at 35 a bit prematurely ashen. Affeldts task in Thursdays Game 5: Enter in the top of the ninth inning with the score tied. And the bases loaded. Facing Cardinals rookie Oscar Taveras, who blasted a pinch-hit homer in Game 2. Gray hair? Thats the least of it. Try an ulcer. I think its good for the game of baseball, Matheny said. Its the kind of series that people are expecting to see in the playoffs. What were left with, though, is an odd dichotomy: ridiculous, riveting games, and lousy, lopsided series. The World Series doesnt start till Tuesday. What should be one of the sports shining October weekends instead is four consecutive days without baseball. The Kansas City Royals and the Giants, who combined to play nine of a potential 14 games in the league championship series, dont mind. Fans, though, are left with football. In the 20 seasons since the advent of the wild-card berth and thus, the division series never before had the two league championship series taken just nine games to decide. Unless the World Series goes seven games, this will become the third postseason in history without a single winnertake-all affair. Excluding the wild-card games, which came about in 2012, and for the rst time produced not just one World Series par ticipant, but both, there are potentially 34 playoff games prior to the World Series. These are important to all sorts of people. Ticket brokers in St. Louis and Baltimore have nothing to sell this weekend. Concessionaires are closed for the winter. TBS, which broadcast the American League playoffs, carried 10 games (plus the wild card), because all three AL series Royals over Angels, Orioles over Tigers, Royals over Orioles were sweeps. Fox, which broadcast the NL games, didnt fair much better, with 13 games. Never in the wild-card era, which began in 1995, have there been fewer games to this point in the postseason (excluding the wild cards): 23. That beats the old mark: In 1998 and 2009, there were three sweeps among the rst six series and 24 games. Boring, right? Try telling that to anyone who has stepped inside Kansas Citys Kauffman Stadium this October or anyone at AT&T Park on Thursday. Absent from the playoffs since 1985, each Royals game has felt like an event. But even for the fans who are used to this and San Franciscos beautiful China Basin ballpark has hosted 20 postseason games since 2010, with more to come its enthralling. And thats the thing: Forget the paucity of games in the television world, they call it inventory, as if boxes of cereal or diapers. Of the 25 games this postseason, including the wild cards, 14 have been decided by one run, six have gone extra innings and ve have been walk-offs. Blowouts? The Giants beat Pittsburgh, 8-0, in the wild-card game, the Royals eliminated the Angels with an 8-3 victory, and the Orioles poured it on the Tigers with an eighth inning that got away from Detroit. In 25 games, thats about it.Series prove short but sweetBy BARRY SVRLUGAWASHINGTON POST MLB: PlayosFans get rare baseball-free weekend in OctoberAP PHOTOSt. Louis rst baseman Daniel Descalso, left, and San Franciscos Travis Ishikawa watch Ishikawas game-winning home run in the ninth inning Thursday to end the NL Championship Series. ST. PETERSBURG Tampa Bay promoted Chaim Bloom and Erik Neander to vice presidents of baseball operations Friday. They will assist president of baseball oper ations Matt Silverman, who replaced Andrew Friedman. Bloom joined the Rays in February 2005 and become a director of baseball operations in November 2011. His areas of focus have included player development, international scouting, contract negotiation and management of the major league roster. Neander has spent the last three seasons as a director of baseball operations with an emphasis on player personnel and research and development. Giants announce death of scout: World Series-bound San Francisco disclosed that longtime major league scout Stan Saleski died last weekend in Baltimore at the age of 59. Saleski spent more than three decades scouting at the major league level for the Giants, Marlins and New York Yankees. Saleski was a talented high school pitcher from Worcester, Mass., who played for Eckerd College in St. Petersburg before being drafted by the Yankees in the 27th round in 1977.Rays promote two MLB NOTEBOOKBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Rays, where he guided the team to four postseason appearances, including division in titles in 2008 and 2010. Friedman said has spoken twice with Mattingly, and they plan to meet next week. He said Mattingly will denitely be the manager next season and he tamped down speculation that close friend, Rays manager Joe Maddon, would follow him to Los Angeles. Im going into it with the mindset that were going to work with Donnie for a long time, Friedman said. Were very aligned on a lot of things philosophically. Mattingly has two seasons remaining in his three-year deal, while Maddon has one year left in his contract. In Tampa Bay, Friedman oversaw one of the major leagues lowest payrolls. With the Dodgers, he will have baseballs highest payroll at his disposal, one that rose to a record $256 million this year. Its obviously differ ent, he said. Our focus is going to be on constructing the best team we possibly can. There are things that will make much more sense here than in other markets. Friedman was short on specics, and he repeatedly said it was premature to comment on such things as GM, farm director, coaches and the roster, including whether free-agent shortstop Hanley Ramirez would be given a $15.3 million qualifying offer. Friedman opened his comments by reading from several prepared pages. Ive been busting him a little bit for having to write a speech. Its not something were used to, but he wanted to make his points, Kasten said. I think he did pretty well. Friedman namechecked some of his famous predecessors in the job, including Buzzy Bavasi and Branch Rickey, while also saluting such former Dodger greats as Sandy Koufax, Tom Lasorda and Don Newcombe, who was on hand. He also thanked the Rays and Colletti. It feels great to be a Dodger today, Friedman said, smiling. I fully recognize the magnitude of the job ahead of me. The Dodgers won 94 games and the NL West title but lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in the playoffs in Collettis last two seasons as GM. They were beaten in four games in the NL Division Series.DODGERSFROM PAGE 1 Golf Directory 5301 HERON CREEK BLVD., NORTH PORT Between US 41 & I-75 Exit 182 423-6955 www.heron-creek.com Take a tour online at: DeepCreekGolf.com Nice People, Great Golf Call 625-6911 for Tee Times & Lessons Deep Creek Golf Club KINGSWAY COUNTRY CLUB BECOME A MEMBER FOR THE DAY 1 mile east off I-75 exit 170 (Kings Highway).

Page 4 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Saturday, October 18, 2014 THE COUCH POTATOS PICKS COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Week 8 at a glanceNO. 14 KANSAS STATE AT NO. 11 OKLAHOMA Noon, ESPN Dont bother recommending eating establishments for Bill Snyder in Norman, because Kansas States coach seldom eats. He limits his intake to one meal a day, usually late at night. He likes Taco Bell and good news there are three in the vicinity of Oklahomas campus. Snyder, who also likes winning, won in Norman two years ago. NO. 21 TEXAS A&M AT NO. 7 ALABAMA 3:30 p.m., CBS Broadcasters will explain in the pregame why Texas A&M is a national contender despite getting blown out in its last two games. The Southeastern Conference is also asking that Alabama coach Nick Saban wash his mouth out with Grapico after he used rough language to describe some in the Crimson Tide fan base who were not thrilled with a lousy 14-13 victory against Arkansas. NO. 5 NOTRE DAME AT NO. 2 FLORIDA STATE 8 p.m., ABC Bo Jackson and Jameis Winston have things in common. Both are two-sport athletes from Bessemer, Ala., who have won the Heisman Trophy. Bo said he recently tried to counsel Florida States troubled quarterback, but Jameis gave him the old Heisman stiff-arm. That should tell you all you need to know about Bo, and Winston. NO. 23 STANFORD AT NO. 17 ARIZONA STATE 10:30 p.m., ESPN Arizona State has to hold tight to the memory of its Hail Mary win against USC, because the Sun Devils might need another. Last year, Stanford dominated what turned out to be a home-and-home series. The Cardinal took a 42-28 decision in Palo Alto and a 38-14 win in the Pac-12 championship game at Sun Devil Stadium. Chris Dufresne, Los Angeles Times QUARTER REPORTNo matter what else happens this weekend, we know Mississippi State isnt going to lose and Georgias Todd Gurley isnt going to play. Anything beyond that is up in the air much like homefield advantage in the Pac-12.1NO. 1 IS SAFE The new No. 1 team gets a week off and the state of Mississippi steps back from the spotlight after two weeks of being the dominant story in college football. Top-ranked Mississippi State it still seems odd to hear that has an open day after leaping Florida State in the rankings last week. No. 3 Mississippi is a big favorite at home against Tennessee. So the old No. 1 is the center of attention this week. The now secondranked Seminoles face No. 5 Notre Dame in Tallahassee. The off-the-field drama never seems to stop following Jameis Winston, but Florida State just keeps on winning. The school-record streak is at 22 games.2GURLEY IS NOT Georgia traveled to Little Rock, Ark., Friday without star tailback Todd Gurley. UGA officials on Friday continued to decline comment about the ongoing eligibility issue facing their star tailback. One detail that may be playing a role: According to NCAA statutes, a student-athlete who has received more than $400 in improper benefits is subject to a suspension of at least 20 percent of competition dates. Gurleys alleged compensation exceeds that amount, sources have told the Atlanta Journal Constitution.3HOME WOES Being home has been far from an advantage in the Pac-12, where road teams are 15-4 going into todays games. Utah was the latest Pac-12 team to win away from home, beating Oregon State 29-26 in double overtime on Thursday night. If the trend continues, its good news for UCLA, which will try to break a two-game skid at California; Washington, which has lost 10 consecutive games to Oregon; Stanford, which has won four in a row at Arizona State; and Colorado, which goes to USC as the only Pac-12 team without a conference victory.4O-H! I-O! ON A ROLL Remember Ohio State? The Buckeyes were preseason top-10, lost quarterback Braxton Miller to an injury in the preseason, lost to Virginia Tech at home and looked like a team that could be in for a long year. Well, the 13th-ranked Buckeyes have righted themselves, scoring 168 points while winning three in a row. Those wins havent come against the toughest of competition (Kent State, Cincinnati and at Maryland), but J.T. Barrett (third in the nation in passer rating) is developing as Millers replacement and suddenly a Big Ten championship run doesnt seem so unlikely. Rutgers gets its first taste of Ohio Stadium.OTHELPLESS HEELS The numbers are staggering and scary if you are a North Carolina fan. The Tar Heels rank second-to-last in FBS scoring defense at 43.3 points per game. Only SMU (49.4) is allowing more points per game, and no other Big Five conference team is allowing more than 39. Georgia Tech gets a crack at that UNC defense in Chapel Hill, N.C. The good news for the Tar Heels is they have been better against the run (73rd in the nation in yards per rush) than against the pass (118th in yards per attempt) and the Yellow Jackets triple-option isnt built to throw it around. Associated Press See Scoreboard for todays national college football schedule. Page 7 TALLAHASSEE No one around the Florida State football team wants to call todays game against No. 5 Notre Dame a mustwin. Reality could tell a different story. The No. 2 Seminoles last week dropped from the top of the rankings for the rst time since Dec. 1, 2013 despite a 6-0 record. Florida State simply hasnt been as dominant as during its 2013 title run. Mississippi State passed the Seminoles in the poll with a victory against then-No. 2 Auburn. An undefeated FSU team should be a lock for the College Football Playoffs. Things, however, could change drastically with a loss to Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish are the last ranked team on Florida States schedule and the last chance to make a signicant impression on the selection committee. Im sure if Florida State lost this game the immediate reaction after would be, well, theyre done, said Danny Kannell, former FSU quarterback and ESPN college football analyst. Because they play in the ACC, which is one of the weaker conferences in college football, because the remaining schedule, there arent too many tests where they can make a statement down the road as it looks now. Notre Dame has those opportunities upcoming against No. 17 Arizona State and No. 22 Southern California. The other undefeated teams in the top ve No. 1 Mississippi State, No. 3 Mississippi and No. 4 Baylor have at least two more ranked teams to play. The Rebels and Bears have three. Anytime you play a high-ranked opponent you want to be successful because it gives you tons of credibility, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. Theres no doubt about it. We dont look at it as an end-all game. Its a very important game. We cant concern ourselves with those thoughts. It does carry weight because Notre Dame has had an excellent year and they have an excellent team. Both teams feature excellent quarterbacks. FSUs Jameis Winston is the reigning Heisman Trophy winner and has a national championship ring. Notre Dames Everett Golson led the Irish to the national championship game at the end of the 2012 season. Winston ranks No. 10 in the country averaging 321.0 passing yards per game and Golson is No. 21 with 280.5. Both are mobile and Golson is responsible for 122 points this season to rank No. 6 in the nation. Golsons 209 rushing yards ranks second on the team in rushing. If there is a weak spot in Golsons game, it is ball security. While he has just four interceptions this season, he has fumbled ve times in the last three games. The team has worked on this in practice this week, with Golson taking part in some running back drills. Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said, Hes tired of answering the question about turnovers. Ive seen him single-handedly take on that approach of, Im going to eradicate this. He knows he needs to do a better job of taking care of the football. Hes the leader on offense. Hes the guy. Were sinking or swimming with what Everett does on offense.

SPOTLIGHT: Florida StateIrish present last chance for a statement victoryBy KAREEM COPELANDASSOCIATED PRESS COLLEGE FOOTBALL: FloridaKind schedule fuels Gators hopesGAINESVILLE The Florida Gators have looked like anything but championship material to reach this point. Poor quarterback play, killer turnovers and defensive breakdowns have left the Gators season hanging in the balance. But a favorable schedule could cure Floridas ills, save coach Will Muschamps job and deliver the schools rst SEC East title since 2009. Tonights visit from Missouri begins a fourgame, ve-week stretch of games against exceedingly vulnerable SEC East Division competition. Theyre beatable teams, Gators tailback Matt Jones said. Weve got it right in our hands. Its just like taking candy from a baby. Weve got to go get it. A four-game sweep would be sweet indeed for Muschamp. He told us we have four games to get us to the SEC championship, center Max Garcia said of Muschamp. Four very winnable games if we go out there and do what were supposed to do and what were capable of doing. He just put that in perspective for us. Four consecutive wins is a lot to expect from a team that is 3-9 during its past 12 games. But the Gators (3-2, 2-2 SEC) have proven themselves capable of winning or losing every week. Florida was tied 21-21 at Alabama early in the second half until one too many turnovers and failed third-down conversions allowed the Crimson Tide to wear down the Gators defense during a 42-21 win. During last Saturdays 3027 gut punch from LSU, the Gators tied the game at 27 with a eld goal after facing rst-and-goal from the 2-yard line. A minute later, quarter back Jeff Driskels inter ception with 30 seconds remaining set up LSUs game-winning 50-yard eld goal. Garcia said the team didnt watch lm of the heartbreaking loss, choosing instead to focus on Missouri. The LSU game, though, made it clear change was needed going forward. The biggest will be at quarterback. Driskel will make his 21st career start today but will share duties with freshman Treon Harris. Harris rallied Florida late to a 10-9 win at Tennessee after coaches benched Driskel during a three interception day. Harris was unavailable against LSU after being reinstated a day earlier when Oct. 6 allegations of sexual battery were dropped by his accuser. Now, Muschamp and offensive coordinator Kurt Roper hope a two-quarterback platoon can elevate a beleaguered offense that has scored seven touchdowns in four SEC games. Hopefully, we do get a hot hand and do well the whole game, Roper said The Tigers (4-2, 1-1) are looking for a spark themselves after a 34-0 home loss to Georgia Mizzous rst shutout loss since 2002.By EDGAR THOMPSONORLANDO SENTINELFour winnable games can put Florida in commandAP PHOTOFloridas Brian Poole (24) and Bryan Cox, Jr. walk o the eld after losing to LSU last week.

Oklahoma States J.W. Walsh, Clemsons Deshaun Watson and N.C. States Jacoby Brissett were all handful for the Seminoles defense. Notre Dames Everett Golson has some of those same skills. He has thrown for 1,683 yards, 16 touchdowns and four interceptions. Golson is also second on the team with 209 rushing yards with a team-high four touchdowns. Notre Dame will need more than just Golson. Its defense will need a big game. The unit has 10 interceptions (tied for eighth most in the country).

The Gators are coming off a three-point loss fueled by three turnovers, which led to 10 LSU points. Missouri has lost two of its last three, including a 34-0 loss to Georgia. For Florida to succeed, the offensive line will have to continue to protect the quarterback, whoever it is. The Gators have allowed five sacks, which is tied for ninth nationally. Tailback Brandon Powell had success in the passing game (six catches) against LSU. But the element of surprise is gone now. If Missouri keys on him, someone else will need to step up.

The Sun /Saturday, October 18, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net Page 5 and started the Tim Tebow Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping children with terminal illnesses. For all of the media attention he received and, even for a Tebow fan like me, I admit it was ridiculous at times almost all of the headlines were positive. Aside from people complaining about his faith or saying he couldnt hack it in the NFL as a quar terback, it is a struggle to come up with anything that painted Tebow in a bad light. Then you have Jameis Winston. Aside from his being a Heisman Trophy and national championship winning quarter back, the similarities to Tebow stop there. In fact, Winston is the anti-Tebow. It seems not a day goes by that Winston isnt in the spotlight. For doing something wrong. First came a female student at Florida State accusing Winston of sexually assaulting her in December 2012. While Winston was never arrested and the state decided not to press charges, the fallout continues as FSU is conducting a student code of conduct hearing to see if Winston should be reprimanded. While one might think going through something like that might make Winston mind his Ps and Qs and keep a low prole, it didnt seem to faze him. Next came the Publix crab leg incident, in which Winston strolled out of the grocery store without paying for $32.72 worth of seafood. He said he simply forgot to pay. It makes me wonder where, in fact, his head was at. He was ordered to perform community service. In September, he hopped up on a picnic table on campus at FSU and yelled something so derogatory to women that it cant be printed. The measly one-game suspension it garnered isnt slowing Winston down. There are also reports that he stole soda from a Burger King and was involved in a BB gun ght with teammates, but no charges were led. Now FSU is investigating why his signature was found on thousands of authenticated, serialized items. The athletic compliance department has yet to nd evidence Winston was paid for any of the autographs, but his history causes skepticism. Under NCAA rule, college athletes are not allowed to prot monetarily from their likeness. Tebow recently offered some advice to Winston. Speaking on ESPNs SportsCenter, Tebow said its his hope and prayer for Winston to nd wise counsel and use better judgment. I hope he can see that and understand that these kids are going to watch him and theyre going to follow him and its his responsibility to lead them in a good direction. And thats my prayer for him, Tebow said. Even Bo Jackson has seen enough. After reaching out to Winston, who shares a hometown (Bessemer, Ala.), Jackson also a Heisman winner said Wednesday hes washing his hands of Winston. Seems Winston didnt want to listen to what Jackson had to say. And while all of this may have an affect on Winstons draft stock, the sad truth is it probably will not. In todays NFL, Winston will t right in. And that culture of star athletes doing whatever they want is surely trickling down into the college ranks. Meanwhile, Tebow, instead of playing on Sundays, spends his Saturdays as an analyst for the SEC Network. Not that theres anything wrong with that, but the NFL could use a few more Tim Tebows and a few less Ray Rices. Or Jameis Winstons.STEVENSFROM PAGE 1 Florida States compliance staff has found no information suggesting Jameis Winston has been paid for more than 2,000 autographs found on an authentication website, according to a statement released by the schools athletic director Friday. Winstons signature is on thousands of items in sequential order on the James Spence Authentication website, triggering a review by FSUs compliance ofce to determine whether the Heisman Trophy winner violated NCAA eligibility rules by accepting pay ment for his signatures. Our Athletics Department compliance staff is reviewing issues raised by the media related to autographed items attributed to Jameis Winston, FSU athletic director Stan Wilcox wrote in a statement released by the school Friday afternoon. At this time, we have no infor mation indicating that he accepted payment for items reported to bear his signature, thereby compromising his athletics eligibility. The fact that items appear on an Internet site bearing the signature of a student-athlete does not singularly determine a violation of NCAA rules. We have kept both the conference ofce and the NCAA apprised of our efforts on this matter. The University takes very seriously any and all allegations of potential rules violations and processes them in accordance with ACC and NCAA policies and procedures. FSU coach Jimbo Fisher adamantly defended Winston on Monday, saying the star quarterback had never taken a dime for autographs. When ESPN. com reported the number of signatures climbed from 200 early in the week to more than 2,000, Fisher said the compliance ofce was handling the issue while he focused on coaching the team. Winstons attorney also agreed to continue cooperating with a code of conduct investigation into an allegation the quarterback sexually assaulted a former FSU student in December 2012. Winston and his attorneys have repeatedly stated he never committed a crime. The state attorney opted not to pursue criminal charges against Winston, citing insufcient evidence.FSU: No proof Winston was paid for autographs COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Florida StateBy ILIANA LIMON ROMEROORLANDO SENTINEL NFL NOTEBOOKSources: Seahawks trade Harvin to JetsFLORHAM PARK, N.J. The New York Jets have acquired wide receiver Percy Harvin from the Seattle Seahawks. Two people familiar with the trade told The Associated Press on Friday that Harvin, a star in last seasons Super Bowl but injury prone through his career, was headed to the Jets. The people spoke anonymously because the deal wasnt ofcially announced by either club. The 26-year-old Harvin has played in only 43 career games since being a rst-round pick (22nd overall) by Minnesota in 2009. He was traded to the Seahawks in 2013, appearing in just one regular-season game because of hip surgery. But he had two rushes for 45 yards and ran back the second-half kickoff 87 yards for a touchdown in Seattles 43-8 win over Denver in the Super Bowl. The deal was rst reported by Fox Sports. Terms werent immediately available. Tannehill probable against Bears: Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is prob able for Sundays game at Chicago because of an ankle injury that briefly limited him in practice this week. Tannehill, who has started every game since being drafted by Miami in 2012, was limited Wednesday, but participated fully in practice Thursday. Gerhart out again with ankle injury: The Jaguars will be without running back Toby Gerhart for a second straight week because of an ankle injury. He missed the previous game in Tennessee and thought he would be ready play Sunday against Cleveland. Gerhart first hurt his ankle in the opener in Philadelphia. He played the next four games but never had more than 10 carries in any game. His season totals are 48 carries for 123 yards and one touchdown. Giants Cruz has no doubt he will return: New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz has no doubts that he will recover from a serious injury to his right knee and return to football next season. Speaking to the media for the first time since tearing the patella tendon and undergoing surgery earlier this week, Cruz said that doctors have told him that his rehabilitation will last 4-to-8 months. The 27-year-old said his spirits are high. I dont have any doubt in my mind, Cruz said. I dont have any doubt that I will be back. I dont have any doubt my rehab process will be successful or that I will be in tip-top shape and ready to go when the time is right. Seahawks down four starters against Rams: The Seattle Seahawks will be without four key starters Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. The Seahawks officially ruled out tight end Zach Miller, middle linebacker Bobby Wagner, center Max Unger and cornerback Byron Maxwell. It leaves Seattle (3-2) short-handed as it attempts to rebound from a loss Sunday to the Dallas Cowboys the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks second loss at home in the last three seasons. Clowney hopes to play Monday: No. 1 overall draft pick Jadeveon Clowney returned to practice and hopes to play on Monday night when Houston visits Pittsburgh. Clowney practiced in a limited capacity for the first time since the former defensive standout at South Carolina had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. Coach Bill OBrien said theyll decide before the game on Monday if he can play, and while hopeful that he can go, Clowney said he wouldnt be surprised if he cant. Around the league: Bengals receiver A.J. Green is expected to miss his second consecutive game with an injured right big toe that has bothered him all season. Green was listed as doubtful for a game in Indianapolis on Sunday. He was inactive for a 37-37 tie with Carolina and didnt practice this week, an indication hes not close to returning. He hurt the toe in the season opener and has aggravated it. ... The Browns placed Pro Bowl center Alex Mack on injured reserve with a broken left leg, officially ending his season. ... Saints tight end Jimmy Graham said he expects his playing status in Detroit to be decided by coach Sean Payton on Sunday, shortly before the game. Graham returned to practice on a limited basis this week despite a shoulder injury that knocked him out of New Orleans Week 5 victory over Tampa Bay.BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LAKE FOREST, Ill. The way the Chicago Bears rst two games at Soldier Field have gone, Jared Allen had an unusual idea for Sundays matchup. Maybe we should wear (road) white jerseys, the ve-time Pro Bowl defensive end said. The Bears will try for their rst home win and try to build on a strong performance when they host the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Chicago knocked off Atlanta 27-13 last week, with Jay Cutler delivering one of his best games as a pro and the defense creating all kinds of havoc. As promising as that performance was, heres a sobering thought for the Bears (3-3). Theyre 0-2 at home, not that they really needed the reminder. The Bears dropped the season opener to Buffalo in overtime, fell to Green Bay three weeks ago. And in both games, turnovers played a big role. Against the Bills, he made an ill-advised pass across the body that got intercepted with the Bears driving in the fourth quarter. The Green Bay game was another rough one for Chicago. Cutler threw two interceptions in the third quarter, and the Packers pulled away for a 38-17 victory. It was a different story at Atlanta. Cutler had the second-biggest passing game of his career with 381 yards, and Chicago limited the Falcons to 12 rst downs and 287 yards even though their linebackers group was decimated. Here come the Dolphins (2-3), who are trying to shake off a 27-24 loss at home to Green Bay. They blew a seven-point lead in the fourth quarter and lost when Aaron Rodgers took advantage of a mismatch in coverage. He threw a 4-yard touchdown pass in the closing seconds to tight end Andrew Quarless, who outmaneuvered linebacker Phillip Wheeler. Despite the loss, Miami coach Joe Philbin insisted his team is ready for Sunday. Guys are engaged and so far the preparation has been good, he said. The Dolphins run game took a hit this week with Knowshon Moreno going on injured reserve with a knee injury. Even so, an area that has been a strength should not suffer too much. After all, the Dolphins still have Lamar Miller and hes averaging 5.2 yards per carry. That ranks third among running backs. Now, he gures to carry a heavier workload. All the guys that we have here can get the job done, he said. I think we have some good running backs here and we just have to get the job done. Miamis Brent Grimes and Cortland Finnegan are facing a big challenge. After struggling against Green Bay, the two 5-foot10 cornerbacks will have to contend with a pair of Pro Bowl receivers in the 6-4 Brandon Marshall and 6-3 Alshon Jeffery. As if thats not enough, Chicago also has 6-6 tight end Martellus Bennett.

Page 6 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Saturday, October 18, 2014 TALLADEGA, Ala. Matt Kenseth would not change anything about his actions in a postrace scufe with Brad Keselowski at Charlotte, where tempers ared as several drivers slipped to the edge of elimination in NASCARs championship race. Brad Keselowski was ned $50,000 by NASCAR for his actions last Saturday night. He hit Kenseths car near the entrance to pit road, tried but failed to wreck Denny Hamlin after the race and ran into the back of Tony Stewarts car. Hamlin tried to confront Keselowski, but he was restrained by his team. Kenseth, angry he was hit while his seatbelts were off, jumped Keselowski from behind but was quickly peeled off the driver. Hamlin and Kenseth were not ned, and Kenseth seemed adamant Friday that Keselowski had it coming. I dont regret my actions, Kenseth said. Im not proud of them or happy about them, but I dont regret them. I dont know that Id do anything different if the same thing would have went down again. Kenseth and Keselowski have now tangled three times this season, and Kenseth felt everybody has their breaking point. He was nearly wrecked Saturday as Keselowski blocked his attempted pass for the lead at Charlotte, and admitted he swerved at Keselowski under caution with six laps remaining. Keselowski said contact damaged his car and prevented him for racing for the win. The contact under yellow is why he hit Kenseth after the race, though even that is up for debate. Brad is greatly exagger ating that point, Kenseth said. I did indeed swerve at him because I was mad he put me in the wall and totally ruined my day, but if you look at his car there is absolutely no damage on it. That was just him greatly exaggerating the story. Keselowski did not view it the same. Hes entitled to his opinion, as I am to mine, Keselowski said Friday. Obviously, we have a difference or what happened Saturday wouldnt have happened. It happened. Its unfortunate. Keselowski did not want to reect much on the last race because he needed to be focused on preparations for Sundays race at Talladega. One of the most dominant drivers this season, Keselowski is on the brink of elimination from the Chase. Four drivers will be cut from the 12-driver eld on Sunday, and Keselowski, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and defending champion Jimmie Johnson essentially need to win at Talladega to advance. Kenseth is also in the bottom four, but in better position to race his way into the third round. This is a huge weekend for me and our team, where weve got to pull out a clutch moment, and I dont want to lose sight of that by spending a whole bunch of time on all that other garbage, Keselowski said.Defiant Kenseth regrets nothing from Charlotte AUTO RACING: NASCAR Sprint Cup SeriesHe needs to climb out of bottom four at TalladegaBy JENNA FRYERASSOCIATED PRESS | AUTO RACING SCOREBOARDNASCAR Camping World TruckFREDS 250 After Friday qualifying; race today At Talladega Superspeedway Talladega, Ala.

The Magic never trailed and built a 19-point, rst-half lead. The Pistons closed within a point in the third quarter, but the Magic countered each time with their own spurts. They outscored the Pistons 23-13 in the nal period and nished the night 9 for 20 from the 3-point line. In Washington, Al Jefferson scored 20 points and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 12 points and 11 rebounds as Charlotte beat Washington 96-86 in preseason play.

UConn celebrated a bit more than usual during its annual First Night event Friday, which traditionally marks the start of the new college basketball season. The school dedicated a new $40 million basketball practice facility, the Werth Family UConn Basketball Champions Center, which opened this month next door to Gampel Pavilion. And before introducing this years teams to fans, last seasons mens and womens NCAA championship banners were unveiled in front of a national television audience. We really wanted everybody in America to know that there are places where basketball is really important and there are places where basketball is great and then there is UConn, womens coach Geno Auriemma said. Fans began lining up early Friday afternoon for First Night, which began with an autograph session that included every player from both teams. Nineyear-old Lucas Espinosa of Guilford was among those who met his heroes. He even got a st bump from mens coach Kevin Ollie. Its like a dream, he said. The best dream. More than 10,000 fans, most carrying large blinking foam light sticks, lled the arena for the light show, the music and, almost as an afterthought, a little basketball. They went wild as former Huskies carried in 11 NCAA trophies and set them down on a table at center court. The cheering reached a crescendo when Auriemma and Ollie appeared on the arenas concourse and walked through the crowd with trophies 12 and 13. The First Night celebration used to be held on the rst day teams were allowed to practice. But recent rule changes have led to staggered starts across the country. The UConn mens team has already held seven practices. The women began practicing on Wednesday. Kentuckys deep squad delights: Just as Drake appeared to draw the biggest cheers at Big Blue Madness in Lexington, Ky., the rapper introduced Kentucky coach John Calipari and the noise then became a roar. The Wildcats mens team gave a sold-out Rupp Arena crowd plenty more reasons to cheer with a fast-paced and sometimes-physical scrimmage that figures to ratchet expectations for a ninth national championship. Kentucky returns six regulars from last years NCAA tournament runner-up squad and has added four high school All-Americans, giving Calipari a 12-deep roster he plans to use with a two-platoon system. The Wildcats went 5-1 using the strategy during a summer tour of the Bahamas.FROM WIRE REPORTS COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Ceremonial startWith preseason work underway, UConn, others welcome fansBanner raising kicks off the party AP PHOTOMembers of the Connecticut band perform at the Connecticut mens and womens basketball teams First Night event on Friday in Storrs, Conn. UConn was one of multiple programs staging fan-oriented festivities on what used to mark the opening of preseason practice. FGCU basks in the TV spotlightFORT MYERS The Florida Gulf Coast mens and womens basketball teams did their respective things the women draining 3s, the men dunking before a crowd of about 2,000 and audience on ESPN3.com during FGCUs second annual Dunk City After Dark exhibition on Friday night. In FGCUs spin on traditional Midnight Madness festivities, the basketball teams played 10-minute scrimmages to go along with 3-point and dunk contests. It was pretty fun out there, said Demetris Morant, who supplanted redshirt sophomore guard Brian Greene Jr. as dunk champion. I thought I was going to lose, to be honest (because) of Brian Greene. FGCU, one of 11 schools included on ESPNs midnight madness coverage Friday on ESPNU and ESPN3.com, joined Kansas, Kentucky, Syracuse and Connecticut as the only schools included each of the last two seasons.

However, the Pirates took a kick in the guy after the game. While celebrating the win, the defending district champions learned Fort Myers had beaten Charlotte, 3121, to clinch the district title. That outcome will turn up the pressure for the Pirates during the next two weeks. Port Charlotte (6-2, 1-1) has a bye week next week and plays host to the Tarpons on Halloween. The winner of that game will nish second in the district and earn a state playoff berth. The loser will have their season end in the rst week of November. But those thoughts werent on the Pirates minds as they scored on the opening possession against Riverdale. Senior quarterback Christian Coffelletto capped the drive with a 1-yard run. However, Port Charlottes two-point conversion pass failed, leaving it with a 6-0 lead. Riverdale (3-4, 1-2) quickly took advantage of the opening. The Raiders marched 11 plays and 65 yards. The drive was capped by senior quarterback Jesse Lighthalls 2-yard run. Nick Vargas kick gave the Raiders a 7-6 lead with approximately 5 minutes remaining in the rst quarter. The drive was the highlight of the night for Riverdale, which produced 11 yards of offense against the Port Charlotte defense in the second quarter. Sophomore Devyn McCormicks 30-yard eld goal gave the Pirates a 9-7 lead, and the Pirates pulled away after halftime. Anthony Stephens threw for one score (a 21yard pass to Malik Dixon) and ran for another (13 yards). Junior Brennan Norus completed the late surge with a 2-yard scoring run early in the fourth quarter. Stephens rushed for a game-high 82 yards and caught four passes for 39 yards. The touchdown was his lone pass. Dominique Boyd led the way for the Raiders with 42 yards rushing on 12 carries. Lighthall completed 9-of-16 passes for 60 yards for Riverdale.Pirates finish with a flourish PREP FOOTBALL: Port Charlotte 30, Riverdale 7Despite win, bid for repeat district title comes to endBY FORT MYERS NEWS-PRESS UP NEXTPort Charlotte: vs. Charlotte, Oct. 31, 7:30 p.m. PREP SCHEDULETODAY Cross Country Charlotte, Port Charlotte, Lemon Bay, North Port at Lely Invita tional, Lely High School, 8 a.m. Venice at Venice Invitational, 8 a.m. MONDAY Volleyball District 7A-10 tournament No. 5 Palmetto at No. 4 North Port, 7 p.m. District 6A-11 tournament No. 5 Island Coast at No. 4 Ida Baker, 7 p.m. Boys golf Region 3A-5 tournament at Plantation CC, Fort Myers, 8:30 a.m. (Charlotte, Venice) Girls golf Region 3A-5 tournament at Bradenton CC, 9 a.m. (Char lotte, Venice) of overtime, needing just two plays to score on quarterback James Thomas 9-yard touchdown strike to wide receiver Joey Giardina. Rodriguez missed the extra point wide right, though. DeSoto County running back DeWayne Hearns scampered in around the right edge for a 10-yard score on the teams first play of overtime, setting up Barajas point after. I told the kids, If we lose, we keep playing. Whats wrong with that? Bulldogs coach Matt Egloff said. But I knew it wasnt going to be one of those deals where he just missed the ball. The victory by the Bulldogs (6-1, 3-0 District 5A-13) came without quarterback Reggie Jones, who missed his second straight start with a sprained right knee. But backup Tajahs Jackson carried 30 times for 215 yards and a 48-yard touchdown early in the second quarter. He completed 4 of 13 passes for 32 yards. He is a special talent. Thats one of the things, on this team, were not going to run short of: talent at quarterback, Egloff said. Tajahs is a 10.6 (speed) kid, so obviously hes fast. We worked really hard this week on being able to throw the ball a bit better. Its still a work in progress, but well keep hammering away at it, and hopefully well get some of our other guys back. The Bulldogs jumped out to an early 7-0 lead when Anthony Lee inter cepted Thomas first pass attempt of the game and returned it 13 yards for a touchdown. Southeast tied the game Thomas 10-yard touchdown run two drives later, but DeSoto County went ahead again on Jacksons long second-quarter run. The Seminoles tied the game at 14 when Thomas hit wide receiver Dimitry Smith for an 18-yard touchdown on their first drive of the third quarter, and neither team would score again until overtime. From where weve been in the district, its a big step forward for the program. This is a good win for us, Egloff said.

Page 8 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Saturday, October 18, 2014 WOEAND22 SARASOTA Christian Van Der Veers last-second touchdown could have been the nish North Port High School wanted. With seconds left on the clock on fourth-andgoal from the Sarasota 7, Van Der Veer sprinted to the pylon, crashing hard into the Sailors Jeremy Trebbles and surged into the end zone. As a winning touchdown, it would have been magical. But Sarasota had locked up this game long before. Sarasotas Justin Austin rushed for 78 yards and two touchdowns and the Sailors feasted on North Ports miscues in a 28-13 victory over the Bobcats on Friday. The loss kept North Port (1-7, 0-3 in District 7A-10) winless in district play. It also extended a losing streak against Sarasota County teams to 22 games. Sarasota raised its record to 2-5, 1-1 in district. North Port coach Larry Detwiler put the loss down to mental mistakes. Though he admitted the team shouldnt be making those errors at this point in the season. Absolutely not, he insisted. Thats lack of focus at practice. Turnovers were also an issue as North Port committed three and two directly led to Sarasota scores. Trailing 14-7 in the third quarter, Sarasotas Tavon Poag recovered a Matthew Laroche fumble at the Sailors 47, killing a Bobcat drive. Sarasota ran the ball with Austin for ve straight plays, then Xakari Hawkins hit Talik Keaton for a 34-yard touchdown pass that gave the Sailors a two-touchdown lead. Laroche started strong until Sarasota adjusted to his runs up the middle. He nished with 38 rushing yards and a touchdown. They started pinching (the middle), Detwiler said. Were running a zone scheme, so once you know where the balls going, you start lling it up. North Port grabbed the lead rst after snuffing out Sarasotas rst drive, capped by Darius Jacksons sack of Hawkins. The Bobcats scoring drive was all Laroche, rushing three times for 40 yards. The scoring run was an 11-yarder through the middle. The lead didnt last. Sarasota responded with its own scoring march immediately at one point converting fourthand-3 from the Bobcats 29 with a Hawkins scramble. The Sailors quarterback zipped a 17-yard screen to Justin Austin, advancing the ball to the North Port 4. Near the goal line, the Bobcats defense wilted. Austin burst off left tackle into the end zone to knot the score at 7-7. From there, mistakes took their toll on North Port and proved too much to overcome.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or email@example.comSARASOTA 28, NORTH PORT 13North Port 7 0 0 6 13 Sarasota 7 7 7 7 28 First quarter NP Matthew Laroche 11 run (Michael Magnapara kick), 7:16.

It was another frustrating week for the winless Tritons, who were thoroughly dominated by Lemon Bay in a District 5A-14 matchup. The Tritons went threeand-out on their rst two possessions, while the Manta Rays moved easily down the eld to take a 14-0 rst quarter lead on touchdown runs of 4 yards and 1 yard by Anthony Marinola. Lemon Bay added three scores in the second quarter. The nal blow came when the Tritons fumbled the ball at the Lemon Bay 48-yard line with 34 seconds to go before halftime. Mantas sophomore running back Brayden Curry burst up the middle for a 52-yard touchdown run on the next play to give Lemon Bay a 35-0 halftime lead and a running clock in the second half for Mariner for the second week in a row. The bottom line is we didnt block and we didnt tackle, Mariner coach Travis Smith said. You cant win football games that way. Lemon Bay outgained the Tritons by 309-34 in the rst half. Mariner (0-7, 0-4) showed some spark in the second half, led by running back Joshua Eugenes 62 yards on six carries, and averted a shutout in the fourth quarter on a 3-yard touchdown run by Tylan Reynolds. They gave the effort in the second half, Smith said. We just need to get it right in the rst half, instead of getting these running clocks coming into the second half. Curry led Lemon Bay (4-3,2-2) with 137 yards on ten carries, while Jeremy Snook added 87 yards on ve attempts. I was proud of the way our kids bounced back after last week, Lemon Bay coach D.J. Ogilvie said. It couldnt have played out any better for us. We played good defense, got up 14-0, and had all the momentum going for us.

At least thats what the scoreboard looked like. The result was a 5-3 win for the Indians put them in rst place in District 6A-7. For Venice (8-0, 2-0), which has put its offense on display time and again this year in its unbeaten start, it was a key defensive play that sealed the win. With the game tied at 3 and just under ve minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, the Indians sacked Largo quarterback Donovan Hale at his own 4-yard line. Largo was forced to punt from its own end zone. Thats when Venice safety Beau Perkins, pushed into punt cover age duty after an injury to a teammate, came along. Perkins broke through the middle of the Largo line and made a beeline for the kicker, blocking the punt back into the corner of the end zone, giving the Indians the game-winning safety. I just shot the B gap, put my arms up and hoped for the best, Perkins said of the play that ultimately snapped Largos 38-game district winning streak that dated back to 2005. I missed last week and didnt practice much this week with a sprained ankle, so I wasnt sure Id even be playing tonight. It was a dose of revenge for Venice, which lost to Largo 22-21 on the nal play of last years game.

Fort Myers kicked a eld goal on the ensuing possession, but the Tarpons responded quickly with an eightplay, 65-yard drive that culminated with an 11yard touchdown run by Trystan Beasley. Charlotte then forced a punt, but its next drive stalled with another failed fourth down conversion. Staring at a fourthand-18 from his own 17, Simms completed a 17-yard pass over the middle to his favorite target, Trevor Laurent. The Tarpon crowd lept up in excitement before realizing Laurent came up a yard short of the rst down marker. A few plays later, Fort Myers iced the game with a 26-yard touchdown run by Terrance Moore. Theyre a veteran team, they start 19 seniors. We knew we would have to get a couple breaks in the game tonight, but we didnt seem to get them, Waldrop said. We played well, Im proud of the way we played tonight. I thought we were ready to play tonight, we just got beat by a good team. The Tarpons (3-3, 1-1) traded blows with the Green Wave (7-0, 2-0) throughout the rst half, and took their only lead in the second quarter when Simms completed a 24-yard touchdown pass to Laurent. That 14-7 lead was short-lived though, as Fort Myers quarterback Dylan Degroot threw a 76-yard touchdown pass to Darrian Felix on the next play from scrimmage. Laurent nished with ve catches for 119 yards. Elijah Mack led the Tarpon running backs with 96 yards.

Page 2 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Saturday, October 18, 2014 Last week, we had lunch with a bunch of old friends. They were all part of a camping group that we belonged to during our 15 years of traveling in a motorhome. This has started me to reminisce about the many trips that we took and the wonders that we saw across the width and depth of this great country of ours. The rst motor home we bought was to see if we would like the motor-homing life. I did not want to spend too much money, so a friend of mine who dealt in used cars took me to the auction in Fort Myers. They had a 1986, 26-foot Winnebago that looked in decent shape. I bid on it and bought the coach for $7,000. We cleaned it up, made some minor repairs, and were ready to go. We planned an ambitious rst trip that was to take us to Victoria in Canada, down to California and back to Florida. We made no reservations and had no time schedule. We were going to see the United States in our Winnie. On May 1, 1997 we made our rst stop. We visited some friends on the East Coast and spent the night in their driveway. The next couple of nights were spent in the driveway of our sons house in St Augustine. From there it was on to Albany, Ga., where we stayed in the Chehaw Park. This was the rst campground of many where we spent the night. It was early May and not many campers in the park. I walked outside and could hardly see another camper but there were several deer about 50 yards away. After breakfast, we got started and meandered over to Plains, Ga. There we saw the Carter museum but did not get to meet Jimmy. We meandered through the back roads of Georgia for two more days before getting to Tennessee. We camped by Opryland and did some laundry. These stops became a weekly thing where we would refresh our bedding and clothing. It was here that we had our rst tragedy when Arlene twisted her and injured her ankle while she was carrying the laundry basket. We were not deterred, Opryland beckoned and we did our day there with Arlene in a wheelchair and me pushing. We enjoyed the venue where they had different auditoriums, all with different musical groups. It was a great day, and it is a shame that it no longer exists. Next stop was Fort Donelson, Tenn. There we increased our Civil War knowledge. Traveling with time to stop and learn added new depth to our journey. It was on to Vincennes, Ind., where we saw the George Rogers Clark memorial. Continuing on we arrived at our sons house in Chicago for the Memorial Day weekend. I found it hard to believe that we took a month to travel from our house to our sons in Chicago. We were really embracing this mode of travel and were really enjoying our selves. We motored on to Minneapolis where we visited a college friend of Arlenes, and renewed that friendship with her and her husband. The next part of our trip was exciting and stretched our wow factor to the limits. For those of you that do not understand this, it was just how big our reaction was to rst seeing these many sights. The Missouri River, Wall Drug Store in South Dakota, the Badlands, and Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse memorial under construction. On into Wyoming where we saw the Devils Tower. Wow, wow,wow and wow This is less than the rst half of this trip that eventually took us 3 1/2 months to complete. I will continue the journeys of Dave and Arlene at a later date. I hope all of you enjoyed our Expo today at the Cultural Center and were able to learn something new about healthcare.

Robedee a certied tness trainer and manager of the Fitness Salon at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County.Cultural Center weight loss competition results: week 3 I checked the calendar Thursday afternoon just 27 days to go until the end of my 90-day tness challenge. That cant be right, I thought. But it was. On Aug. 12, the Charlotte County YMCA paired me with a personal trainer, David Alix. In return, Id write about the experience in my weekly columns. I started out around 225 pounds, barely able to walk a 20 minute mile it actually took me 22 minutes. About three minutes into that session, I was out of breath. I thought I was going to pass out even though David assured me I would not. I held a plank for if I remember right 37 seconds before I collapsed to the oor. Modied pushups? They were more like modied half-pushups. I think I got in about 11 before my arms gave out. For the life of me, I couldnt imagine how things were going to get better. But they have. I would have been lost without Davids guidance and encouragement and the outpour ing of support from friends, family, acquaintances and readers. Really, its been humbling. I havent been a 100-percent compliant student Ive neglected to keep a food journal this far into the challenge. On my weeks off when I was in Georgia with my Dad my exercise routine was spotty. Ive already written about all of the junk food I consumed on my most recent trip. Even at home, on my own, Ive had a couple brief affairs with fried food and ice cream. I had started going to the gym ve days a week last month, but Id started slacking down to three. I kicked it back in gear last week, though. Another thing I have yet to do attend more kinds of classes. Part of this journey was to get exposure to different workout styles, classes and techniques. Ive gotten in a zone with Davids Monday-Wednesday-Friday training routine. Its usually pretty intense either high-intensity interval training or solid blocks of nonstop cardio and weight resistance. Next week, Ill be trying out deep water aerobics on the days I dont train with David. Im also planning to check out boot camp, now that the weather is cooler. Pam, one of the women in the group training sessions, keeps questioning my sanity. Shes probably right but I have to keep going outside my comfort zone. From here, I still have a long way to go. Im down 17-18 pounds, depending on the day and the scale. Thats not even half of my goal weight loss. But Im pushing to drop 10 more before Nov. 12. That will put me below 200 pounds for the rst time in more than ve years. Im waiting until the end to take my measurements again but I can tell that Ive lost inches as well. Im almost at the point where I need to buy some clothes at least one size smaller. Ive also noticed a continued increase in stamina and strength. This morning (Thursday), I walked about 2.5 miles, across the Peace River bridge and back. I kept a brisk pace, but I barely broke a sweat. I had to work to even get my heart rate up. I can remember walking at the Punta Gorda Relay for Life last year. A friend shes 71 accompanied me. I could barely keep up. I was sweating and panting. Bev, my friend, is a snow bird and I expect shell be back in Port Charlotte very soon. Ill have to see if shed like to be my walking buddy. She often closes her emails with, Never a day without exercise. I cant wait to show her that Im following her advice. My boss periodically tells me that I need to get a photo to run with my column, and Im nally OK agreeing to that. (Im also due for a photo of the progress so far, and the after photos once the 90 days is up). So, next week, I promise to run one. Saturday the day Feeling Fit comes out in the Sun is the day of our annual health and wellness expo at the Cultural Center. Ill be roaming around the expo hall taking photos and talking with our vendors, attendees and readers. Please be sure to stop me and say hello. If you cant nd me, just stop by the Feeling Fit/Charlotte Sun table and ask the handsome and talented Dave Powell (my boss and Feeling Fit publisher) to page me. Hell be the guy with the microphone.

The Sun /Saturday, October 18, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net Page 5 Ive been advocating for lung cancer awareness and research funding for years. At times I feel like a broken record, citing the same statistics over and over until I am blue in the face. What bothers me more than anything is the blatant inequity and unfairness of how lung cancer is discussed and treated. The stigma of lung cancer and lack of sympathy for patients is not only disheartening, its wrong. A few years ago, I approached a local member of the American Cancer Society (ACS) board of directors to ask that his company sponsor our annual race to raise awareness. I was abruptly and rudely turned down because lung cancer patients are smokers who have no one to blame but themselves (for contracting the disease). The ACS in general contin ues to take a less-than-helpful stance when it comes to lung cancer. Lung cancer has been getting a raw deal for decades. All I want, really, is a fair shake for the one cancer that takes more lives than any other. I dont want another four decades to pass without signicant progress being made toward increasing survivorship and nding a cure. My advocacy is about having an equitable allocation of limited resources. How can it be that breast, colon and prostate cancer each get more federal research dollars than lung cancer, which accounts for more deaths than the other three combined? In 2013 breast, colon and prostate cancer received a total of $1.75 billion in federal research funding, according to Lung Cancer Alliance. By compar ison, lung cancer received just $231 million. There are days when I think I am making progress, and there are other days when I feel like I am just spitting in the wind. Over the last six years, Ive discovered that trying to change peoples attitudes is not an easy thing to do. I dont know how many people Ive spoken to who are just ignorant about the facts surrounding this disease and have the attitude that lung cancer patients deserve the disease because they were smokers. Not true. No one deserves to have cancer. This week it was nice to get a message from someone who read my book after being diagnosed with lung cancer. He wrote to tell me he survived his rst year and my book helped him immensely. He is a magazine editor and he now wants to become an advocate and write about his experience. Lung cancer patients get it, but how do you get the general public to give a hoot? This year we lost a good friend and neighbor, Elizabeth Meneely, to lung cancer. Liz worked as the IT director for the city of Punta Gorda. She was greatly loved by her family and friends and her co-workers. She put up a valiant effort to beat the disease and did everything she could, including making a weekly plane trip to Boston to be treated. In the end, she lost her battle and is now with God. What a shame Liz had to die at the age of 50 because so little progress has been made in nding and treating this disease. Liz had so much more to give and was an inspiration to the lung cancer community. I dont know if Liz ever smoked and, frankly, I dont care. What difference does it make? She is gone, as are many others, well before their time. This week I received an e-mail message from a prominent member of our community thanking me for these weekly articles, which are meant to inspire hope and action. The truth is that, while I appreciate the kind words, action speaks louder than words. If you would like to take action, go to www.lungcancerresearchcouncil. org and create a team, buy a memorial sign, make a donation, or help raise funding online. There is no hope without action. I will be at the Feeling Fit Expo at the Cultural Center from 9 a.m.-11 a.m. Saturday handing out fact cards. Please stop by to say hello! Making a difference one person at a time Tom Cappiello LIVING WITH CANCER MY DIARYI was diagnosed with stage 3A locally advanced adenocarcinoma (nonsmall cell lung cancer) in October of 2007. I am one of the few survivors of this terminal disease. My diary is written to give cancer patients hope and understanding about life after a cancer diagnosis. This is for those who are being treated for cancer and those caring for a loved one.

Page 6 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Saturday, October 18, 2014 When the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently released its list of 220 Medicare Accountable Care Organizations, 53 of those were successful. Among those is Millennium Physician Group. The Affordable Care Act encourages doctors, hospitals and other health care providers to work together to better coordinate care and keep people healthy rather than treat them when they are sick which also helps to reduce health care costs. The pioneer Medicare Accountable Care Organization (ACO) concept is one example of the innovative ways to improve care and reduce costs. In an ACO, providers who join these groups become eligible to share savings with Medicare when they deliver that care more efciently. In essence, they are rewarded with a portion of the savings that would result from improving care quality and reducing the cost for their eligible Medicare populations. The program holds member or ganizations to accountable health care that is, they must demonstrate improvements in efciency and quality while containing costs. An ACO consists of a group of doctors, hospitals and other health care providers, who come together voluntarily to give coordinated high quality care to their Medicare patients. The goal of coor dinated care is to ensure that patients especially the chronically ill get the right care at the right time, while avoiding unnecessary duplication of services and preventing medical errors. The primary care physician is the key participant to the patient in ensuring that the ACOs objectives are met. One of the largest primary care groups in Southwest Florida more than 100 providers from Venice to Naples including hospitalists and primary care physicians Millennium contracted with ProCare Med LLC in January 2013 to participate in its ACO. CMS has claimed that 4 million Medicare recipients now have access to care through approved ACOs. Millenniums ACO is listed under CMS documents as ProCare Med LLC. A name change was submitted earlier in the year and the ACO is now ofcially named Millennium Accountable Care Organization. Millenniums Accountable Care Organization focuses on delivering measurable quality healthcare for patients while also ensuring that this care is cost effective for patients. Millenniums ACO concentrates on four main areas: improved access to primary care, improved transitions of care between inpatient and outpatient settings, improved population management, and quality medical care. We get quarterly updates from CMS. From a program perspective, the whole idea of ACO is getting patients and physicians engaged, putting them back at the center of the care. Were the primary care provider. Were a primary care dominant group; thats our focus. ACO is primary care driven, said Balford Francis, executive director of ACO, Managed Care Contracting and Revenue Development at Millennium Physician Group. Theres a natural t between ACOs goals and objectives and Millenniums goals and objectives, which is to provide primary care services for patients, and working with them to make sure theyre engaged with the proper care provider, especially if they have chronic care problems. Patients with chronic care problems are provided with enough access to primary care providers. We keep patients out of emergency room unnecessarily; keep them from being admitted. When we do have a patient that has to be admitted in a hospital or a skilled nursing facility, one of the critical things that weve done is to make sure those patients see a prima ry care provider as soon as possible, usually within seven days. According to CMS, ACOs have improved patient care and produced hundreds of millions of dollars in savings for the program. Those in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (Shared Savings Program) and Pioneer ACO Model generated over $372 million in total program savings for Medicare ACOs. The encouraging news comes from preliminary quality and nancial results from the second year of performance for 23 Pioneer ACOs, and nal results from the rst year of performance for 220 Shared Savings Program ACOs. Meanwhile, the ACOs outperformed published benchmarks for quality and patient experience last year and improved signicantly on almost all measures of quality and patient experience this year. We all have a stake in improving the quality of care we receive, while spending our dollars more wisely, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell said. Its good for businesses, for our middle class, and for our countrys global competitiveness. Thats why at HHS we are committed to partnering across sectors to make progress. Millennium Accountable Care Organization is one of the ACOs that are eligible to share in savings. Our team realized that change was coming in health care, said Millennium CEO Geurt Peet. Status quo was no longer acceptable and we needed to prepare for a new way to deliver quality care in a cost effective manner. The collaborative efforts between our providers, staff and others outside of our organization helped us manage this change, highlighted by this achievement. Im proud of the entire teams effort to get to this goal in such a short period of time.Millennium named a successful Accountable Care OrganizationBy BOB MASSEYFEELING FIT CORRESPONDENT PRIMARY CARE FILE PHOTO If oncologist Larry Wickerham ruled the world, every woman would know her chances of getting breast cancer, and those at high risk would be offered a drug to prevent the dis ease. This is not a pipe dream, says Wickerham, deputy chair of NRG Oncology, a cooperative research group. The drugs exist; they have been used to treat breast cancer for decades. But only a fraction of eligible women take them for prevention. Wickerham would like to see the National Cancer Institute run a sustained campaign to educate doctors and the public about so-called chemoprevention of breast cancer, as the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute did to promote reduction of cholesterol and blood pressure as a way to prevent heart disease. But other experts believe there are many other reasons breast cancer chemoprevention is such a hard sell. Among them: Women are afraid of the potential side effects, and some doctors are reluctant to prescribe drugs to healthy people. Primary care providers are not trained in breast cancer prevention. Even if doctors are knowledgeable, they dont have time in a six-minute ofce visit to ascertain a patients per sonal preferences, assess her level of risk and discuss the costs and benets of reducing that risk. Manufacturers dont promote drugs for prevention, especially if they are off-patent. Medical authorities, including the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence in Britain, recommend that women at high risk of breast cancer consider taking one of several anti-estrogen agents that have been shown to cut the incidence of the disease by onehalf or more. But only about 1 percent of eligible women do so, according to Jack Cuzick, head of the Centre for Cancer Prevention at Cancer Research U.K. Breast cancer chemoprevention remains an enormously underutilized tool, said Dr. Paul Goss, director of the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center breast cancer program. Compared with statins (which reduce cholesterol) or antihypertensive agents (used to treat high blood pressure), the use of breast cancer chemopreventive drugs is very low, and, yet, the safety is as good if not better. Fran Visco, president of the National Breast Cancer Coalition, warns that we have to be certain that the risks are exceedingly small before offering drugs to a healthy population.Breast cancer chemoprevention a hard sell, but should it be?By JUDY PERESCHICAGO TRIBUNESELL | 15 feelingfit.com feelingfit.com Saving Smiles in Charlotte County Since 1991 50472335 ITHE WKENZIE CENTERIV Sedation Gum DiseaseLaser Surgery Cosmetic SurgeryImplants Extractions EmergenciesCall today to schedule a free consultation941-629-3443www.

The Sun /Saturday, October 18, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net Page 7 That exercise is a critical component in maintaining a healthy body is no secret but for people with Parkinsons disease, exercise is even more crucial. Balance and movement issues often make it difcult and patients fearful of engaging in a program, but there are exercises programs designed specically for people who live with Parkisons disease. A Parkinsonsspecic therapeutic chair yoga class began this month in North Port thanks to a partnership with the Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinsons and Goodwill. The class began Oct. 16 and runs every Thursday until Nov. 20, at the Goodwill in North Port, 14249 Tamiami Trail. The series will cost $60 per person $10 per class and both patients and their care partners are welcome to attend. Campanella said no prior yoga expe rience is necessary and all yoga will be performed in or around a chair. Exercise is very therapeutic to people with Parkinsons, said Carisa Campanella, Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkisons care coordinator. Whats great about yoga is it fosters strength and bal ance. The class will work with participants at their level in a safe way that they can build up their balance and strength. A similar program was done last year with Parkinsons patients in Long Boat Key, in which the foundation received a grant. The classes were so popular, the foundation decided to try it in North Port this year, even without a grant. There is a need in North Port to provide specialized exercise for those with Parkinsons, Campanella said. Were continuing to try to nd and facilitate a Parkisons-specic program in North Port. Goodwill is cosponsoring the program through the Karma Yoga Outreach Program developed by the Garden of the Heart Yoga Center, which aims to bring yoga to special populations, Campanella said. The classes will be taught by Natalie Di Mauro, a certied yoga instructor, of the North Port Yoga Center. Space is limited, so participants must register with the foundation. Weve been getting a really good response, Campanella said. We really encourage those with Parkinsons to exercise and this could get them into a really good practice they can continue to do. The Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinsons, which opened an ofce in North Port last year to assist local Parkinsons disease patients, is open three days a week, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the North Port ofce, 5600 Peace River Road, near the intersection of Sumter Boulevard and U.S. 41. Advisors can help Parkinsons patients and caregivers nd services as well as answer questions about medications, nutrition and exercise, symptoms and progression of the disease, such as mood changes. Campanella said since the ofce opened almost a year ago, they have grown to include four support groups. According to the Foundation an estimated 9,000 people in Southwest Florida have Parkinsons disease. The foundation estimates another 5,000 to 10,000 are directly affected as caregivers or medical professionals. Carisa Campanella, care coordinator, said the foundation services about 1,000 people in Charlotte and Sarasota counties.

Page 12 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Saturday, October 18, 2014 Bayfont Health Punta Gorda, a Joint Commission accredited Stroke Center, has received the Get With The Guidelines Stroke Gold-Plus Quality Achievement Award for imple menting specic quality improvement measures outlined by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association for the treatment of stroke patients. Get With The Guidelines Stroke helps hospital teams provide the most up-to-date, research-based guidelines with the goal of speeding recovery and reducing death and disability for stroke patients. Bayfront Health Punta Gorda earned the award by meeting specic quality achievement measures for the rapid diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients at a set level for a designated period. These measures include aggressive use of medications and risk-reduction therapies aimed at reducing death and disability and improving the lives of stroke patients. Bayfront Health Punta Gorda is dedicated to improving the quality of stroke care and The American Heart Association/American Stroke Associations Get With The Guidelines Stroke helps us achieve that goal, said Brandon Downey, CEO. With this award, our hospital demonstrates our commitment to ensure that our patients receive care based on internationally-respected clinical guidelines. We are pleased to recognize Bayfront Health Punta Gorda for their commitment and dedication to stroke care, said Dr. Deepak L. Bhatt, national chairman of the Get With The Guidelines steering committee and Executive Director of Interventional Cardiovascular Programs at Brigham and Womens Hospital and Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Studies have shown that hospitals that consistently follow Get With The Guidelines quality improvement measures can reduce patients length of stays and 30-day readmission rates and reduce disparity gaps in care. Get With The Guidelines Stroke also helps Bayfront Health Punta Gordas staff implement prevention measures, which include educating stroke patients to manage their risk factors and to be aware of warning signs for stroke, and ensuring they take their medications properly. Hospitals can make customized patient education materials available upon discharge, based on the patients individual risk proles. The take-away materials are written in an easy-to-understand format in either English or Spanish. According to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, stroke is the number four cause of death and a leading cause of adult disability in the United States. On average, someone suffers a stroke every 40 seconds; someone dies of a stroke every four minutes; and 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year.Bayfront earns quality award for stroke careProvided by BAYFRONT HEALTH NEWS & NOTES FILE PHOTO While most of us are snuggled up, toasty warm in bed all night, neurodiagnostic technologists like Chris Talbert are up sitting in front of a monitor watching young patients sleep. Talbert is part of the new Epilepsy Monitoring Unit team that tracks young patients, looking for clues to help determine the cause of their seizures. We monitor the patients constantly, Talbert said. We have to watch closely. Most seizures are two to three minutes long. As soon as I see something, I let the nurses know. The rst of its kind in the region, the units are designed to give physicians the best opportunity to evaluate seizures and try to determine their cause since seizures often occur while a patient is sleeping. Its scary, said Vilievy Flores, of Naples. We have no family history of something like this. Her son, 10 year old Emilio Suarez, had two unexplained seizures last summer and recently spent a night in the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit for testing. Flores said that having the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit is so important because monitoring Emilios brain for an extended period of time will lead to answers. Its very thorough. During the night, while I was sleeping in the room with him, I woke up and one of the techs was here, adjusting the wires. They were so quiet. The best part for Emilio was sleeping through the test. I didnt know it (the seizures) happened, he said. My brother showed me pictures after I was conscious. Im asleep when it happens. One of the best components of this test is that it can be tailored individually for each child. We can keep a child for an overnight stay or up to several days depending on what information we need, said pediatric neurologist Dr. Guillermo Philipps. We use this information to deter mine the best course of treatment. We are really pleased to offer this service because it helps families get answers.

The earlier breast cancer is found, the greater chance a patient has at beating it, said Lisa Gardner, director of diagnostic imaging at Fawcett. There are two-and-a-half million breast cancer survivors in the United States. Women and men cant choose their diagnosis, but they can take precautions to nd breast cancer and begin treatment as early as possible. Throughout the month of October, Fawcett will be offering $65 mammogram screenings through the hospitals radiology department. Appointments can be scheduled by calling 866-463-7103. Fawcett Memorial Hospital recommends that women in their 20s and 30s do monthly breast self-exams and undergo a clinical breast exam at least every three years. Women should have a clinical breast exam and a mammogram every year after age 40, according to Gardner. The American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates that more than 220,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year and more than 40,000 will die. Breast cancer is currently the second leading cause of death among women and one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Fortunately, the number of breast cancer deaths continues to decrease each year as more women learn about the importance of early detec tion techniques.

Well, theres a group of physicians who certainly intend to stay in their profession but thats not stopping them from using their considerable talents to raise funds for the good of the community. Taking a cue from TVs Americas Got Talent, the Medical Societys annual Physicians Got Talent has featured physicians showing off as musicians, singers and magicians and has raised a bundle to assist community projects. This years event the organizations third begins at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 1 at the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association, 2001 Shreve St., Punta Gorda. Tickets are $25 per per son, which includes hors doeuvres and one complimentary glass of wine or beer at the cash bar, as well as dessert and coffee. All proceeds will go to the Charlotte County Medical Society Foundation to assist programs such as stafng the Virginia B. Andes Volunteer Community Clinic and other services the society provides to its members and community. The charity clinic is so necessary to our community, since there are so few services available for the impoverished, uninsured and underinsured of Charlotte County, said Dr. Mark Asperilla, a Port Charlotte infectious disease specialist and Medical Society member who helped found the facility. But its also a very expensive service to run. We need to make sure we have enough physicians to match the patient load which has grown considerably. Thats where this fund-raising event will help. The second annual Physicians Got Talent in 2013 featured Dr. Mark Asperilla, Dr. Val Dinolov, Dr. Antonio Gabarda, Dr. Daideep Hignorani, Dr. David Klein, Dr. Sanjay Kumar, Dr. Rohit Pankhaniya, Dr. Steve Schroering and Dr. Steve Tucci. Among the event sponsors were Fawcett Memorial Hospital, Bayfront Health Port Charlotte, Bayfront Health Punta Gorda, Nurse on Call, Retina Consultants of Southwest Florida, Morgan Stanley, Walgreens Infusion, Charlotte County Foot and Ankle Center, Dr. Marc Melser and Dr. Mark Asperilla.

The Sun /Saturday, October 18, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net Page 15 But advocates of prevention believe the side effects, including bone-thinning, hot ashes and a slightly increased risk of blood clots and uterine cancer, have been exaggerated. Patients have unbelievably been oversold on the side effects, said Dr. Marc Lippman, professor of medicine at the University of Miami. There is a simple retort: Most women in the randomized trials of chemoprevention drugs could not correctly identify whether they were on the drug or a placebo. The Holy Grail is efcacy with no toxicity, said Dr. Nancy Davidson, director of the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, but we dont have too many drugs that achieve that goal. Statins have their own side effects, but weve been able to articulate the benet. On the whole, Davidson said, breast cancer (risk-reduction) drugs have pretty limited toxicity. But if a patient does have unwanted symptoms, she said, switching to another agent is always an option. Lippman pointed out that millions of people take medications to reduce their risk of heart disease even though there is a signicant risk of harm in taking a statin or a baby aspirin. The correct question is, Is the benet outweighed by the harm? he said. I dont think people appreciate that 125,000 cases (of breast cancer in the U.S.) could be prevented every year. Think of the health savings and the misery prevention! Lippman noted that the two drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration for breast cancer chemoprevention, tamoxifen and raloxifene, have also shown dramatic ability to prevent osteoporosis. And as many women will die of osteoporo sis as of breast cancer, he said. Despite the hurdles, there are signs of progress. Wickerham believes Cuzicks 1 per cent gure may be outdated. NRG has been evaluating the decision-making process of women thinking about chemoprevention. Were nding that 20-25 percent accept it, he said. Lippman, too, says hes pretty successful at getting high-risk women to try chemoprevention. I explain everything, he said, and the women are smart. They understand theyre not doing it for life, only as long as its not bothering them. To the extent that cost is a disincentive, the Affordable Care Act will require new health insurance plans starting next year to cover chemoprevention with no co-payment or deductible in high-risk women. Meanwhile, European investigators are looking into whether reduced doses of tamoxifen, the oldest of the prevention drugs, can achieve the same benet with fewer side effects. Dr. Per Hall of the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm said the daily dose was changed in the 1980s from 40 milligrams to 20 milligrams, which remains the standard dose for breast cancer patients who take the drug to prevent a recurrence. No one ever tested if lower doses were effective, he said.SELLFROM PAGE 6 and Available Treatment Options: A Less Invasive Approach for Knee Pain (LIVE demo) Speaker: Ronald M.

Clothes fit better, feel better, look better. BEFORE Vein Specialist Many of us have bulges of stubborn fat like muffin tops. Those unwanted bulges contain fat cells, which can be resistant to diet and exercise but not to CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to target and crystallize fat cells. Crystallized fat cells gradually die off, then are naturally eliminated from your body. In the weeks and months following treatment, remaining fat cells condense, reducing the fat layer. CoolSculping lets you say goodbye to stubborn fat.
