INSIDEMany of you have been asking for it, and we got it for you. Todays Charlotte Sun features the sample ballot for the upcoming November election. Check it out on page 12. For Charlotte Harbor Regatta, the journey to winning the 2015 F18 Americas Championship began with losing out on a less prestigious regional regatta in a different class. The loss reinforced the old saying, Half the battle is showing up. For newbies, Charlotte Harbor Regatta is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to promote sailing on Charlotte Harbor. Founded in 2009, CHR has staged ve annual one-design regattas. In 2012, the organization, which is comprised of board members from area yacht clubs, sailing and boating clubs, the county tourism bureau and the Sun Newspapers, organized the International Association for Disabled Sailing World Championship. I serve as chairman of CHR. While the Charlotte Harbor Regatta has begun to re-establish the harbor as premier sailboat racing venue, there is still a lot of Charlotte Where? out there. So when we bid for a regatta to be held next April, we lost out to another club by not being there in person to speak to sailors and class ofcers. When several members of the F18 class encouraged us to bid on the F18 Americas, we knew we needed a more personal approach, but the cost was daunting. The vote on the championship was set to be held at the class annual meeting during the nationals regatta in Corpus Christi, Texas. The price tag for travel, lodging and meals would top $1,000. That would eat into money CHR gives as grants to local sailing organizations and the reserves we need to cover costs leading up to our annual regatta in February. But a no-show bid would put us in a group of other clubs which indicated they would host the event. Thats when Sean Doherty, the director of sales and marketing at the Charlotte Harbor Visitors and Convention Bureau and the CHR secretary, pitched the bid to his boss, Tourism Director Laura Steiner. She green-lighted the trip to Texas. Without that support, and the ability to meet face-to-face with class members, we would not have been able to differentiate ourselves from the other prospective hosts. Sailboat racing at the international level is a very clubby scene. These men and women from various backgrounds and towns travel the country and the world, seeing each other in several ports of call. When they get together, its like separated siblings who behave as if no time at all has passed since their last meeting. It pays to have friends to help you break in. In our case, Todd Riccardi, a repeat participant in the CHR, broke the ice during the long rst afternoon of the Nationals, when racing was postponed by a stubborn thunderstorm. Another CHR veteran, Dave Ingram of Sarasota, wrote a letter of support to the class on our behalf. No doubt they lled in any informational gaps about Charlotte Harbor and the Port Charlotte Beach Park venue. We know we have to keep working to spread the word. I bumped into J.J. Johnson in Corpus Christi as we walked from the yacht club to the hotel. I knew he was building a house in Punta Gorda, but had never met him. He noticed my CHR shirt and said he heard Charlotte Harbor was bidding for the Americas, which will be next October. Thats why Im here, I said. Where is Port Charlotte Beach Park? Ive never been there, J.J. said. Im arranging a tour when he gets back. Brian Gleason is editorial page editor for the Sun Newspapers.

But she took the stand Friday to recall her stabbing, and to talk about the lasting effects of that attack at the Redneck Yacht Club. I replay it every day, the 22-yearold said before 20th Circuit Judge Amy Hawthorne in an emotional courtroom at the Charlotte County Justice Center. I lose sleep Im not the same person. After listening to passionate arguments from both sides of the law during an hourlong hearing, Hawthorne sentenced Rachels attacker Jessica Hess, 20 to three years in prison followed by seven years of probation, which cant be reduced. Hess pleaded in August and was convicted of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Its a hard sentence, the defendants father, Ron Hess, told the Sun, speaking for many grieving family members and friends.Emotional sentenceBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERSTABBER | 9 Man who lost twins works to save lives PHOTO PROVIDEDPhotos of Joshua and Christian DeMello. Paul DeMello is hoping the upcoming Twins Tot Walk will raise awareness.CHARLOTTE COUNTY Watching children grow up can bring tremendous joy to parents. Taking their rst step, opening birthday and Christmas gifts, rst day of kindergarten and driving home the winning run for their team are precious moments people cherish for a lifetime. Paul DeMello, however, was cheated out of these memories he lost his twin 13-month-old sons, Joshua and Christian, to an accidental drowning in January 2010. Despite his over whelming grief and pain, DeMello had the strength and the courage to take this tragic event and transform it into something meaningful and educational. I was in the hospital, and I remember someone telling me how Mothers Against Drunk Driving had started with a tragedy, he said. Thats when I decided to get the word out about protecting children from drowning. DeMello founded the nonprot organization known as Just Against Children Drowning in April 2010, just months after his sons untimely deaths. JACD sponsors bike runs, car washes, and other fundraising activities during the year. Its biggest event to generate money is the annual Twins Tot Walk to remember those children lost to accidental drownings. The event kicks off at 4 p.m. Nov. 2, at Gilchrist Park, with participants walking the A.W. Gilchrist Bridge from Punta Gorda to Port Charlotte and back. Registration fee is $22 to walk or run one bridge or the Ultimate Twin Pledge of $44 for both. Last year, we had more than 200 people show up, DeMello said. My son Christian donated his liver to a 1-year-old boy in Texas and his kidneys to a 22-year-old woman in Sarasota. She never had a child and after she received the kidneys, she got pregnant and had a baby several months ago. By AL HEMINGWAYSUN CORRESPONDENTTWINS | 9MURDOCK Local environmental groups are taking legal action to block proposed changes to Charlotte Countys 2050 comprehensive plan. Charlotte County commissioners voted unanimously last month to follow county staff recommendations regarding the streamlining of the comp plan, but now Charlotte Harbor Sierra Club members and the Friends of Cape Haze have led challenges to the revamp with the state Division of Administrative Hearings. This is a very big deal, said Debra Highsmith, environmental committee chairwoman for the Sierra Club chapter. She led the challenge for the club with the state. The proposed changes eviscerate protections for neighborhoods, wildlife and habitats, Highsmith said. Its not anything we didnt expect, and we are still reviewing the documents, County Attorney Janette Knowlton said Friday. Beyond that, I have no comment. However, at a commission public hearing Sept. 23, Community Development Director Ty Harris, who has also served as an assistant county attorney, described the changes to the comp plan as necessary due to recent Challenges to the Charlottes comp plan By STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERPLAN | 9 BrianGLEASONEDITORIAL PAGE EDITORBY THE NUMBERSStabber gets three years in prison PUBLIC HEARING VIDEOA CC-TV video of the Charlotte County Commissions public hearing on Sept. 23 for adopting changes to the natural resources and coastal chapters of the 2050 comprehensive plan is available on the countys website at charlottecountyfl.com.

The Sun /Saturday, October 25, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 3 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS PUNTA GORDA The local man accused of shoplifting a sandwich from a grocery store Wednesday was back for more the following day. And he wasnt going to be caught easily. Lelan Eugene Hendrix, 41, was shopping in the Publix at 2310 Tamiami Trail around 1:30 p.m. When he ordered a sub from the deli, the workers kept an extra eye on him because he had allegedly stolen a sandwich the day prior. Sure enough, Hendrix took his lunch, grabbed some u medicine, put the items in a shopping bag and headed for the exits without paying, according to a Punta Gorda Police report. When staff members confronted the suspected thief as he was trying to leave, the man agreed to follow them to the ofce. Then suddenly, Hendrix turned around, took off running, tripped on a rug, barreled over a female employee, dropped the merchandise, knocked the automatic sliding door off the track on his way out, hopped into a Pontiac sedan and ed, the police report shows. Officers used a description of the man and his license plate number to track him down at his home on the 400 block of West Grace St., but his car wasnt there. The man first denied trying to steal from Publix. However, he reportedly said he tried to hide his car from the police by parking it a couple streets over at Punta Gorda Public Library. Hendrix was arrested on charges of shoplifting, resisting a merchant and battery. He was being held Friday in the Charlotte County Jail on $7,500 bond. The value of the items he allegedly tried to take was $16. The Charlotte County Sheriffs Office reported the following arrests: Crystal Lee Hanisch, 35, 100 block of Dunn Drive, Port Charlotte. Charge: grand theft. Bond: none. Tawney Shae Bronson-Postal, 23, 10500 block of Sandrift Ave., Englewood. Charge: failure to appear on a felony. Bond: none. Ashley Elizabeth Dahl, 22, 200 block of Winson Ave., Englewood. Charge: violation of probation (original charge: sale of amphetamine). Bond: none. Honori Alexander Johnson, 38, 400 block of Ricold Terrace, Port Charlotte. Charge: violation of probation (possession of a controlled substance without a prescription). Bond: none. Traci Lynn Mace, 34, 21300 block of Austin Ave., Port Charlotte. Charge: violation of an injunction. Bond: $3,000. Antonio Tyson Wade, 21, 15800 block of Pennington Circle, Port Charlotte.

Not every arrest leads to a conviction and guilt or innocence is determined by the court system.Among Floridas top Republicans to make the rounds in Punta Gorda this week was Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam who urged supporters Friday to vote down Amendment 2 and reelect Gov. Rick Scott. Putnam, 40, is running for re-election to one of four Florida cabinet seats against Democrat Thaddeus Thad Hamilton. He was elected to statewide office in 2010. But Putnam is no stranger to politics. The Florida native served in the state House of Representatives from 1996 to 2000 before heading to Washington, D.C., where he served in the U.S. House of Representatives for a decade. In 2010, Putnam returned to Florida after being elected head of the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services the state agency that promotes Floridas 300 agricultural commodities around the world, manages state forests, helps farmers, safeguards consumers, assists with the school lunch program and processes concealed-weapon license applications. Putnam has helped draw attention in Tallahassee to one of the states most pressing problems: water quality and supply. He has made water conservation in agriculture one of his departments priorities. He is a bright star on Floridas horizon, said State Sen. Lizbeth Benacquisto, who joined dozens of local Republican Party leaders to greet Putnam on the campaign trail. For his part, Putnam spent much of his speech at Fishermens Village rallying support for Scott, who is in a dead heat against Democrat Charlie Crist in the race for governor. What you say to your friends and neighbors is so much more persuasive than any 30-second ad, he said, urging Republican supporters to get their votes in early. If we bring back Charlie Crist and his cotton-candy populism, were stepping backward 10 years. Putnam also took time to lambaste support for Amendment 2. Amendment 2 has nothing to do with medicine, he said. It was a cynical attempt to turn out the vote in favor of Charlie Crist. Thats why its on the ballot. So far, Putnam has raised $2.7 million for his campaign and spent about $789,000. His opponent Hamilton has raised $21,163 in campaign contributions and taken out $13,140 in loans. He has spent $25,027.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comPutnam visits Punta GordaBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITER SUN PHOTO BY BRENDA BARBOSAFlorida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam was on the campaign trail in Punta Gorda Friday, where he was greeted by dozens of Republican Party leaders. 50474946

A bake sale helped bring in donations. Some of the goodies were prepared by students at the Charlotte Technical Center. October is Domestic Awareness Month, and the Justice Center is also holding a supply drive to benet CARE through Halloween. Donations of toilet paper, paper towels, dish detergent, washing detergent, bleach, disinfectant spray and cleaning supplies can be dropped o at the Justice Center in Punta Gorda. Pictured are: CARE prevention educator Anita Kos, Director of Civil Court Services Roger Eaton, and Civil Court Services supervisor Marie Hicks.Justice Center caresSmall in stature with bright blue eyes, 9-yearold Faith Deacetis shy demeanor doesnt give outsiders an inkling of her powerhouse skills when she steps on a gym mat. Faith was recently named a member of the National Jumpstart Gymnastics Team. She is the only gymnast in the state of Florida to make the Jumpstart team, and one of only three gymnasts to land on teams in both her disciplines, oor and power tumbling, according to her coach. Faith trains at Horizons Gymnastics and Dance Academy in Port Charlotte under the experienced coaching of longtime gym owner Shelly Proa. Shes the rst one to qualify for the national team and shes the rst 9-year-old to make the national team. Shes the youngest weve ever had to even qualify, Proa said. Shes one of the top trampolinist and tumblers in the entire country. The young North Port gymnast didnt talk much during practice this week, but Faith did reveal a determined and focused attitude when given instructions by her coach. She demonstrated a few moves on the trampoline with fellow classmates looking on. Working in two disciplines, she endures a rigorous training schedule. I practice three hours on three days of the week, she said. Proa said the gymnasts schedule changes when the on-season starts back up in a few months. During the competition season, Faith will begin more instruction with more advanced-level coaches. Though one might think her quiet nature could make for a difcult student, her coach says quite the opposite. Shes very shy, but I think thats what makes her such a successful gymnast. She listens, she takes everything you say in and shes easy to instruct, Proa said. Beginning in January, training will begin for camp in March, when Faith will go back to Texas she made the national team in testing there earlier this month with her coaches and meet other talented gymnasts, all with their eyes on a national title. The USA Gymnastics coaches groom the younger kids at a national Olympic training gym. The gymnasts meet every six months and the plan is to get them on the fast track to Olympic level, Proa said. They basically groom them for the Olympics. Gymnasts who have been recruited and have joined the national team are then expected to travel and train in different facilities throughout the country. Older gymnasts are even taken internationally for training and instruction. Faith isnt old enough to travel out of the country just yet. She will stay in the U.S. until shes a little bit older. At age 12 they are then able to go out of the country with the teams to train. Its only a few years off for her though and shes that good, Proa said. While traveling around the country, Faith will join other gymnasts and coaches during training until the national championship in July. When asked about her parents, Jamie and Kevin, accompanying her during her travels, the Atwater Elementary fourth-grad er said her parents could not go with her during training camps. They wont come, but they will come for the championship, she said. My parents helped me get started in gymnastics. Since Faith was named to the national team, Kevin said the family has been going non-stop. Things are going very well. We are so proud of her, Kevin said. Shes got goals in her head She self-motivates herself, and she knows her goals in life. We dont push it, we just support her. Kevin said his daughter is also a member of Atwaters photography club, on top of staying on the North Port schools honor roll each nine weeks. Shes into the other things also, but the majority of her focus goes to her tumbling, Kevin said. She always thinks she has room for improvement and wants to push herself to the next level. Theres a hard part (in that) we cant be with her when shes away. but we support her and we are proud of her. The dedication that comes from her heart you cant teach that.

Our Town Page 6 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Saturday, October 25, 2014 RELIGION NEWS Charlie, a regular at a Thursday morning Bible study I attend, loves to sail. He describes catching the wind in your sails as you move across the waters of Floridas Gulf Coast as fantastic. After Googling sailing tips, I learned theres far more to sailing than meets the eye. Its easy to make an analogy between the rigging of a sailboat and the doctrines of ones faith. In Revelation 2:18-29, John writes to the Church in Thyatira for Jesus, the Son of God, the One whose eyes are like blazing re, saying, I know what you are doing. I know your love and your faith. I know how well you have served. I know you dont give up easily. In fact, you are doing more now than you did at rst (verses 18-19). Although their ship seemed structurally sound, he observes that the Church in Thyatiras vessel was sailing in dangerous waters. By allowing Jezebel, the false prophets, corrupt teaching on idolatry and sexual immorality, Jesus indicated they were in unsettled seas. They faced certain judgment unless they turned away from their sinful ways (verses 20-22). The One who searches hearts and minds was aware of their attitudes and actions. Fortunately, the rest of those in Thyatira didnt follow the teaching of Jezebel. They hadnt learned Satans deep secrets, so Christ counseled them to hold on to what you have until I come (verses 23-25). Christs tolerance for those in his Church today who practice idolatry and immorality equals that He held for the Church in Thyatira. Yet to those who obey his teaching about purity, He promises, to give authority over the nations to all who overcome and who carry out His plans to the end (verse 26). With the authority received from His Father, Jesus Christ will also give the morning star to all who overcome (verses 27-28). In 2 Peter 1:19, it urges, We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as a light shining in a dark place, until the morning star rises in your hearts. That applies only to those who listen to what the Holy Spirit says to the churches (verse 29). Today, as always, Jesus Christ asks His Church to make obedience to His Word its highest priority.

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. It is based on the true stories of cancer survivors as they cry, struggle, and even laugh along the way. Although the work is mostly about breast cancer and its survivors, the feelings expressed are common to so many who have dealt with cancer. A group of volunteer community singers will present this work at 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 9, at Burnt Store Presbyterian Church, 11330 Burnt Store Road, Punta Gorda. 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 25, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 7 RELIGION NEWS Where there is no vision the people perish, but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. (Proverbs 29:18)There are two powerful truths found in this proverb. First, when Gods people have no vision, they per ish. The church, the body of Christ is ever growing and changing. We need revelation as to where we are headed and what we are to do. This does not mean we need to change Gods word to t the times; it does mean we cannot be lax in our work to reach the lost. In this day of technology, the Bible is available to billions of people, but most are not reading it. We need to listen for Gods voice as to when to move and when to wait. As the early church learned in Acts 2:47, it was the Lord who added to the church daily those who were being saved. People need a vision, or revelation, of their purpose in serving God, and the church certainly must have a vision of where it is going in 2014. Pray for the leadership in your church that they will be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit and continue in Gods will. God has so much He desires to do through His church, but He can accomplish only what we are willing to do if we are listening to Him. The second part of this proverb deals with our happiness. God wants us to be happy, but it must be done within His word. Find out what Gods word says and obey what He has spoken to you. Far too many people are searching for happiness in this world. They hope to nd it in relationships, careers, money, possessions and other worldly priorities, yet nothings seems to work because no one ever will nd true happiness outside of God. In Proverbs 3:13, it is written, Happy is the man who nds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding. Wisdom is found in Gods word where we come to know God, understand Him, and learn to trust Him. Obeying Gods word is the means to our happiness. Our relationship with God is the most important thing we have. When we know God, His love washes over us, and we want to do everything possible to please Him. This means we will honor Gods word by obeying it. Gods kingdom is orderly and run with perfection. God created us to live under such guidelines and our spirit, soul and body rejoice when we live within these boundaries. That is happiness.

I am half inclined to think we are all ghosts ... It is not only what we have inherited from our fathers and mothers that exists again in us, but all sorts of old dead ideas and all kinds of old dead beliefs and things of that kind. They are not actually alive in us; but there they are dormant, all the same, and we can never be rid of them. Whenever I take up a newspaper and read it, I fancy I see ghosts creeping between the lines. There must be ghosts all over the world. They must be countless as the grains of the sands, it seems to me. And we are so miserably afraid of the light, all of us.

Hess, from Riverview, was with a group of friends on Feb. 8 at the off-road recreation park on Bermont Road. Rachel, from Apollo Beach, was also there with friends, including Hess ex-boy friend Garrett Rankin, 21, and a girl named Clarissa Esco, 25. Hess got jealous of Esco and attacked her. Rachel tried to intervene, and Hess stabbed her ve times with a 3-inch pocket knife. Bystanders separated the girls. Rachel was own to Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers. Hess was arrested. A 20-year-old whos obsessed with her ex-boy friend got us here today, Assistant State Attorney Jillian Kuykendall told Judge Hawthorne Friday, before listing previous charges against Hess that she felt illustrated the defendant couldnt keep her emotions in check. Shes been given a chance to change her life, and she hasnt. Kuykendall strongly encouraged Hawthorne to consider locking up Hess for a decade. This is a serious crime, the prosecutor said. She should have serious consequences. She had no regards for Ms. Rachels life that night. Hess lawyer, Art Eggers, of Tampa, argued it wasnt uncommon that his client had a small pocket knife with her. The defense attorney also told Hawthorne that the dark world of Floridas state prison system was not the appropriate means for the defendant to get help in this case. Eggers further noted that medical records suggested Rachels physical wounds were only minor. He added that, despite testimony that the victim has been struggling with certain physical activities, photos recently posted on Facebook show her doing active things, like swimming with sharks, hanging out at bars and attending concerts. Before learning her fate, Hess asked to apologize directly to the girl she stabbed more than eight months ago. If I could take it all back, I would, a tearful Hess said. I dont know who I was that night. The defendant had over a dozen supporters in the courtroom. A handful pleaded for Hess freedom before Hawthorne rendered her decision. I have thought about very long and hard about a sentence that is appropriate for you, the judge said to Hess, before telling her shed be turned over to the Florida Department of Corrections. Hawthorne said incar ceration was appropriate, in part, because Hess stabbed Rachel multiple times with a dangerous weapon, and the injuries the victim sustained were extreme. She said she felt Hess was too young to be sentenced to 10 years, though, as the State suggested. Some of Hess family members burst into tears and ran from the courtroom. The defendant told her parents she loved them as she was being taken into custody. Email: akreger@sun-herald.comSTABBERFROM PAGE 1 Through my son, life goes on. She and her family will be at the walk to support us. After losing his two boys, DeMello joined the National Drowning Prevention Alliance, based out of Tustin, Calif., to learn more about safeguarding toddlers from drowning accidents. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, children, ages 1 to 4, have the highest drowning rates with most of them occurring in home swimming pools. Drowning is responsible for more deaths among children of that age group than any other with the exception of congenital anomalies, or birth defects. I would estimate that 75 percent of people have a pool or access to one in Florida, DeMello said. Usually in April, they open them up for the season, especially up north. We call April 1, Aprils Pool Day. Thats when you really start hearing about water safety. We need to squash that thinking. Prevention is a year-round thing. My kids died in January. Sharon, who did not want her last name used, lost her 11-monthold son to a drowning accident. She has been working behind-thescenes by distributing iers in Charlotte and Sarasota counties to publicize the walk. I am 110 percent behind this, she said. I had never heard of an accidental drowning until I lost my son. I never realized it was the No. 1 cause of death in children 1 to 4 years of age. So far, I have distributed between 4,000 to 5,000 iers. Sharon said the loss of her child was a life-changing event, and, like DeMello, wants to educate parents about the danger of accidental drownings. She carries a picture of her son on her cellphone to keep his memory alive. Its a day-to-day emotional roller coaster for me, she said, her eyes welling up with tears. Im 25 years old, I live in a beach state, and Im afraid of water. With the money raised from the groups events, DeMello has been installing fencing in homes that have pools in caged-in lanais. He has also been conducting classes for CPR, and other preventive measures at community health events, churches and any place where people will listen to him. Im not re-creating the wheel here, he said. Its a community problem; we need a community solution. We need the media, and the swimming pool industry, on board as well. A lot of positive things have come out of this, DeMello continued. But it still isnt equal. I would trade it all to have my kids back. But, if I can do this for 50 years and save one childs life, its been worth it.

According to Harris at the hearing, the goal of the revisions was to delete from the comp plan specic regulatory language that is or should be addressed in land use regulations. None of this stuff we are doing takes away whats currently in the land development regulations and is enforceable, Harris told commissioners. We are removing regulatory language from your planning document. But to the Sierra Club, Highsmith said, whats gutted from the plan are: Protections for wetlands, buffers, wildlife corridors, oodplains, ground water and surface water; Protections that will direct development away from sensitive lands toward more appropriate areas; Limitations of public access to public water bodies by allowing the vacations of streets and other rights of way. The Friends of Cape Haze a grassroots non prot group of residents and homeowner associations also led its own objections with the state. Prior to the public hearing, the group objected to changes it viewed as stripping away wetland, other wildlife protections, and weakening the transfer of development units (TDUs) from high hazard and coastal zones. The Friends of Cape Haze had won a court settlement four years ago against the county over coastal development densities and the TDUs. What resulted from that settlement, Harris said at the hearing, remained in place. But thats not how Friends of Cape Haze views the changes. Like the Sierra Club, the friends group views the comp plan changes as diminishing protections to natural resources but also allowing potentially more development in coastal areas. As far as land use regulations sufcing for what was removed from the comp plan, Percy Angleo, a Friends board member, said land use regulations can be changed easily, whenever commissioners want and much easier than implementing comp plans changes. Also, Angleo said comp plans should identify where development should and should not occur. No administrative hearing dates have been set for either challenge.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comPLANFROM PAGE 1 | COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFSNAACP to hold meetingThe NAACP will hold a General Meeting from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. today at the Mid-County Regional Library, 2050 Forrest Nelson Blvd., Port Charlotte.

Deutsch for county commissioner. His special interest group is the citizens of Charlotte County. He is solid, honest, knowledgeable, moral and has integrity. I may not agree with his every vote, however, I trust and have faith in his reasoning. You may never agree with everything, but I trust Stephen R. Deutsch to do what he believes to be in the best interests of the citizens of Charlotte County. He is a good man. Please give him your support and vote because he really deserves it.Sandy Cambria Port CharlotteBible is word of menEditor: Would someone please tell a recent letter writer that the Bible is not the word of God, but the word of men, who said it was the word of God.Jim Lanza Punta GordaExclude travelers from West AfricaEditor: Ebola: no vaccine, no treatment, no cure. Taking temperatures at airports is pointless when Ebola has a 21-day incubation period and can remain active on surfaces for 10 days. President Obamas appointee, CDC Director Tom Frieden, is responsible for evaluating Ebolas threat and protecting Americans. He seems to have accomplished nothing. Thousands of West African travelers arrive in the U.S. yearly. Consider the exponential danger and incalculable expense caused by the one known Ebola carrier. Obama must put political correctness aside to stop all potential carriers from entering America. He must employ the full legal authority granted by the Immigration and Nationality Act to exclude (deny entry to) migrants from affected countries. Section 212(a)(1), dating back to 1891, grants exclusion authority and has been used by the U.S. on numerous occasions. Following the events of 9/11, the Ebola virus was specically added as a ground for exclusion. In the Sun Dr. Asperilla revealed that a 90 percent mor tality rate is anticipated among people who become infected by Ebola here in Charlotte County. Our health facilities are not prepared to control Ebola, yet residents of Charlotte County are still traveling to and from West Africa. Migrants from Ebola-affected countries must be excluded from entering the United States immediately. U.S. citizens returning from West Africa should be quarantined for 21 days upon arrival as permitted by federal and state law. Speak out. The lives you save may be your loved ones.Glenice Reed Punta GordaNo reason to support sales taxEditor: Our Charlotte County government has been heavily pushing for an extension of the 1 percent (deceptively referred to as one cent) sales tax, yet I fail to see a good reason for us to support it. Our county economy is falter ing, with businesses that have been around a long time such as Captain and Cowboy, Long John Silvers, Broadway Bagel, Toys R Us, Alligators Bar and Grill, Pies and Plates, and Edwin Watts Golf closing up shop in recent history. New business growth such as new secondhand shops and another restaurant by the mall replacing a major retailer doesnt offset the losses. In contrast, North Port has new businesses opening up everywhere and few businesses closing up shop. They also have a 1 percent tax, but unlike Charlotte, they spend money on essential city services rather than tearing down perfectly good buildings to build new ones, or expanding things that really dont need to be expanded. They also dont have all the MSBUs like Charlotte County has. North Port is beneting from extensive private investment, whereas Charlottes big government solution is failing us. We must send our commission a message by voting this sales tax extension down. I noticed a few months ago an article about incorporating Port Charlotte. Thanks for noticing my suggestion at a county commission meeting, but you got it entirely wrong. If we incor porated, think Sandy Springs, Ga., and think fewer taxes, not more.David M. Morris Port CharlotteShoes for kids project ourishesEditor: Bless you, Charlotte County! Ten years ago, the Kiwanis Shoes for Kids Project began in Charlotte County. In this time period, through the generosity of many individuals and businesses, we have delivered 44,310 pairs of shoes to the students in the Charlotte County public school system. During the 2014 summer drive we collected our largest number yet, 5,815 new pairs of sneakers. The smiles and cheers abound as the students are given a new pair of tennis shoes for the academic school year. These new sneakers are condence builders, social equalizers and a true gift to the families in our community. The nancial challenges which face our local families continue to mount; for some a simple gesture of assistance at the beginning of the new school year is the boost they need to help their young ones begin their successful academic journey. Port Charlotte Sunrise Kiwanis is sincerely blessed to reside in such a gracious and caring community. We appreciate your support of the many projects we work on. We are especially honored to work with you side-by-side to provide a basic need for our local children. Charlotte County, you are like none other; you are the best! As the school year progresses, we continue to deliver shoes to the various schools in the school district and we seek your continued support for this project. If you would like more information regarding the project, or to make a donation, please visit www. pcsunrisekiwanis.org or call 941-769-0864.Christy Smith Port CharlotteNot pleased with hospital situationEditor: I will be needing surgery soon. My insurance companys network hospital is Fawcett Memorial. The type of surgery I need is not available at Fawcett, but is at Sarasota Memorial. My insurance company would pay for the surgery if it is not available at the network hospital. I asked Fawcett to send my insurance company a letter stating that the procedure I need is not available at their hospital and they refused. They said it was against their policy. I suppose if Fawcett wont make money on my surgery they wont help a patient who is in dire need. I tried to speak to the hospital administrator, but his secretary would not allow me to do so.Felix Bordelon Port CharlotteThe state is now enemy of the stateEditor: Our federal government: With all its lying, deception, corruption, tyranny and dysfunction should now be considered an enemy of the state.Gerald Terpstra EnglewoodColligan is right for North PortEditor: A recent Viewpoint editorial noted that Jack Colligan has many strengths, 26 years in leadership with city and county recreation departments, and has strong local connections. He is well-versed in regional issues. He is pro-economic growth and pro-Chamber of Commerce. The editorial also said, its time for a reset. Having experienced the past few years of some commissioners lack of experience and knowledge of regional history, then that makes Jack the right choice. With the divisiveness created by this current commission, who better to mend the breakup? Ms. Moore, a newcomer in all her resume, such as Chamber of Commerce, North Port Economic Development Corp. and others are only four-six months young. I, as one of the founding fathers of the North Port Economic Development Corp, have been promoting the Toledo Blade Corridor, gathering spots along U.S. 41, (which I was involved in for two years prior), as well as West Villages and an educational center. So lets look at the facts: Its time for a change, as the Viewpoint expresses, which means in my opinion, that we need a person with some tribal history to put North Port on the right track and rekindle the relationship with the county as we were before all this inghting and dismissiveness. Like it or not, we would be better off as a partner with the county, than to be at each others throats.Ken Maturo North PortPersonally sick of politiciansEditor: As I sit here watching the debate between Rick Scott and Charlie Crist, I see a polished, slick politician vs. a man who doesnt do well public speaking but truly cares about Florida and Floridians. Im sick of the war on women, income inequality, tea party slamming and fair share politics. Ive decided to vote for Rick Scott. What Florida and this country needs is fewer politicians and more genuine people who want to give Floridians and U.S. citizens the chance to go after the American dream. Politicians are for politicians, not for the people. And Im personally sick of politicians.Lois Almonte Port Charlotte OUR VIEW LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Letters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

HOW TO SUBMIT A LETTER TO THE EDITOREmail letters to letters@sun-herald.comChairman Derek Dunn-Rankin Publisher David Dunn-Rankin Executive Editor Chris Porter Editorial page editor Brian Gleason Editorial writer Stephen Baumann Editor John Hackworth V IEWPOINT Restoring nature an acre at a timeBack before the advent of serious federal and state environmental regulations, the landowners who built the housing tracts of Southwest Florida were relatively free to bulldoze and ll their way across the landscape. Good for develop ment; awful for natural Florida. Local, state and federal entities have been clawing back ever since, attempting to restore the ecosystem, re-create wildlife habitat and clean water polluted as a result of short-sighted development practices. Its been a slow and expensive process. Last week, one small step was celebrated at Coral Creek in Rotonda with the completion of the rst phase of a major 2,600-acre Charlotte Harbor area restoration project. Only 250 acres of wetlands and uplands were involved in the initial $1.1 million phase of the Coral Creek restoration. The bulk of the funding came from state environmental trust funds and water management district taxes. Charlotte County contributed $71,000. Natural and man-made channels were enhanced. More than 26 acres of exotic vegetation was removed. Some 46,685 wetland plants and 450 upland trees were planted. Restored wetlands, ponds and marshes will better lter water that ows into the harbor. This is a relatively small, but signicant step. The next phase involves another 300 acres. Overall, someday, nearly 2,600 acres are due to be restored and preserved. Best to keep in mind, this is the price we pay, acre by acre and dollar by dollar, for the short-buck mistakes of the past.Local charity keeping paceFor years now, St. Vincent de Paul has been a lifeline for hundreds of people who may have been at the end of their rope needing food or prescription medicine. Last week, the local charity made two announcements that indicate its future is in good hands. First, Gary Moerke was named president of the group. The Minnesota native has been involved with the charity from the ground up credited with helping keep the food pantry shelves stocked to meet a growing demand. Moerke and his wife moved to Punta Gorda in 2008 after he retired from Unisys. Ive always wanted to help those in need, he said. Moerke began his volunteer work with St. Vincent de Paul by working with furniture donations and continued by taking over the food pantry bringing the Harry Chapin Food Bank mobile pantry truck to Punta Gorda on occasion. He has served on the charitys board of directors. His term as president covers three years. The charity also announced this week that it has won a $5,000 grant from Walmart. The retail giant donated $3 million to the 50 food banks nationwide that received the most votes on Facebook from the public. According to a press release, more than 120 food banks competed, including the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida which provides most of the St. Vincent food. The Fort Myers-based Harry Chapin was the 11th leading vote-getter and received $60,000 which it shared with local food pantries. We are proud of the accomplishments of St. Vincent de Paul and its dedicated volunteers. Their services are much needed even as the economy begins to recover.

The Sun /Saturday, October 25, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 11 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS VIEWPOINT There are actually two North Poles; a magnetic center to which compass needles turn and a real point at the top of the globe from which ows longitude lines, those delineators that help Garmins and other GPS devices navigate us safely to our destinations. Its unfor tunate that in education, too many are attracted to the false, magnetic pole while unaware of the existence of the true point of reference. Recently I had the honor of working with a dynamic civics teacher, Dawn Foley, during the Charlotte County Public Schools annual I Went Back to School Day. Through seven periods, I saw the bright and the dull, the motivated and the slack, parade through true north, a classroom at Murdock Middle School. And as I watched Foley navigate her way up and down the scales of pedagoguery and infor mation retention, I could not help think of the fools and devils who are doing their damnedest to attract many to a false pole of educational excellence. Teachers these days labor under a crushing load of standardized tests, ostensibly designed to improve student performance through the analysis of mountains of data and to determine which instructors are really performing. Teacher salaries have been yoked to student achievement, a false pole that looks good but wont take us to the true north of educational excellence. Testing agencies, which stand to make millions, politicians ignorant of all but their exertions to stay in ofce, and crusty older folks who argue that they paid their debt to public education easily gravitate to the false pole of accountability. They nd a receptive audience among those who believe teachers swan through nine months, then spend three months at the beach. Critics of public education can nd ready fodder when they look at the disconnect between teachers unions and school administrators. Worse, never before has there been such a gap in understanding between educators and parents. Because of the new skills required of students by those experts racing toward the false north of academic viability, teachers are being asked to teach concepts parents never learned during their sojourn through the public education system. Consequently, the knaves and fools who disparage public education nd willing ears among parents who subscribe to the persistent current of anti-intellectualism in our society. Demagogues and jacklegs have long argued that natural abilities, rather than acquired skills, are what makes the man or woman. Rugged individualism, not tax dollars, is considered more important than book learning and the steady, patient hand of good teachers. But thats a recipe for suckers that certain classes have long used to keep the rest of us under the saddle or behind the eightball. At the conclusion of the Back to School event, CCPS Superintendent Doug Whittaker remarked on how this is the only country in the world that attempts to educate all of its children. As he spoke, I thought of the mix of children I interacted with during the course of the day. Very few of those kids are the scions of the men and women who are rigging our education system to fail by mandating more testing and false standards of accountability. Yet the students I met represent the majority of our society, boys and girls who will one day be men and women. For that reason alone, sirens of the false north deserve to be ayed for sabotaging societys future. Their work has divided administrators from teachers, parents from educators, and the general public from the noble mission of public education. In the civics class in which I participated, Foley asked the students what should citizens do when their leaders fail them. De-vote them, said a diminutive student. Would that it were so simple. Instead, whats needed is a different kind of teaching adult education of those who are ignorant about what really goes on in our classrooms. Rather than criticize what deserves praise, or offer solutions for what isnt broken, all who think they know whats wrong with public education should get on the path to the true north. Spend a day in the classroom, as I did. I guarantee youll come away with a new perspective on which way is up. James Abraham is a book publisher based in Charlotte County. He can be reached at book-broker @hotmail.com.A lesson from back to school day James Abraham Its Fall and Punta Gorda is once again buzzing with activity! You can see it on the highways, in the restaurants and in the supermarket. At TEAM Punta Gorda, we love this time of year because our wonderful volunteers are back in town. Now that our Beautication Committee has nished replanting all of the bicycle planters (no small feat) they are moving on to larger projects. Over the next month youll notice that the Old County Courthouse on Taylor Street, which actually belongs to Charlotte County, will get a landscaping facelift courtesy of this busy committee. Also evident around town this month is an increase in bicycle and pedestrian trafc. TEAM Punta Gorda was recently notied by the Charlotte Community Foundation that it has been awarded a grant to conduct a public education campaign called Share the Lane. Motorists are particularly in need of information about how to cope with the increased cycling trafc. This campaign will be designed in partnership with the City of Punta Gordas Bicycle Friendly Communities staff, the Public Safety staff and the Charlotte County Health Department. When asked about the County Health Departments interest in this project, one health educator commented that you cant expect healthy behaviors from people unless you provide healthy neighborhoods. Speaking of bicycles, the Bicycle Loaner Program, better known as the yellow bikes, has just added an ADA compliant hand pedal bicycle to the eet. It can be found at Laishley Marina. The yellow bikes have been in great demand this year with ridership at over 4,000 just from January to August 2014. We also plan to add childrens bikes so that families can use the program. The 365 Group is a newly birthed committee whose aim is to support the local economy for all 365 days of the year. They will work closely with the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce Resource Development team, and will seek to de velop creative strategies to support the economy in the off season. Partnering with Charlotte Habitat for Humanity, our Paint Your Heart Out team is gearing up for another great service project in 2015. Last year this same group painted nine houses and Blanchard House Museum in one day with 200 volunteers. The team is hard at work, planning next years event. If you are looking for a way to give back and only want to commit to one day of volunteer work, this is a great project for you. Most of the good ideas for projects that TEAM Punta Gorda takes on come from our volun teers. Perhaps they saw or read about similar projects in other cities up north, and thought they might be suitable for Punta Gorda. These projects do more than put on a pretty face. The process of collaborating with so many other nonprots and neighbor hoods builds a sense of community for all of us. After 10 years, this is the value added that TEAM Punta Gorda brings. If you think youd like to share your talents with us and get involved in a TEAM Punta Gorda initiative, wed love to talk to you. Please email the TEAM Punta Gorda ofce at team@teampunta gorda.org and someone will get in touch with you. Or, call 941-637TEAM (8326).

Nancy Johnson is the CEO of Team Punta Gorda. Readers may reach her at team@teampunta gorda.org.Volunteering at TEAM Punta Gorda CEO of Team Punta GordaNancy Johnson Over a year ago, we wrote a twopart piece on the Charlotte County Jail titled, Behind the Walls. We thought it would be a good idea to revisit the facility since its now under new management and to determine if any changes or new programs have been implemented. Late last year, Maj. Earl Goodwyne assumed command of all jail operations. Goodwyne has been with the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office for nearly 22 years. He holds a bachelors degree in criminal justice and is completing his masters degree in criminal justice administration. He has held positions in every major area of the Detention Bureau, which, in our opinion, is about the best training one can attain in order to take on a management position in any operation, whether public or private. One of the new programs put into effect by the new commander with help from Corrections Deputy Paul Dempster, the programs officer; and Lt. Jessica Long involves the local Walmart and their outdoor nursery department. Every week or when requested, Walmart will notify jail personnel of plants that are in need of some TLC. These plants would normally be disposed of or returned to the vendor. Jail inmates will nurse these plants back to health and when any local nonprofit in Charlotte County, such as Habitat For Humanity, is in need of landscape plants to complete a project, they will be donated to the cause. A greenhouse, which was donated years ago, is currently used to grow water plants used in the pond located in front of the jail. These plants help prevent algae and also help with the oxygenation process. The pond continues to be used to raise channel catfish that feed the inmates, which helps reduce the overall cost for inmate meals. The jail continues to grow substantial amounts of lettuce, cabbage and tomatoes for in-house consumption as well. In 2012, a program known as PREA (Prison Rape Elimination Act) was enacted. This program stresses the rule of no physical contact between inmates and between inmates and jail personnel. Management has assigned a PREA coordinator to oversee the program. The facility has until 2016 to be audited and come into compliance or risk the loss of federal grants. Currently, the facility is well on track to attain this goal. Any inmate who is booked into the facility views a 10-15 minute condensed version of a full 60-minute video. This is geared toward individuals who will be released within one or two days. Inmates considered to be potential long-term visitors will view the full video shortly after being processed for a longer stay at the facility. Currently the jails capacity is 960 inmates. The jail has 12 main pods, each with a 64bed capacity. These 12 main pods break down into current population use of eight male pods, two female pods, and one retrofitted unit used for infirmary purposes. There is also a separate work release building which breaks into two units. The remainder of the units are distributed into smaller ancillary units. Interestingly, the population is at its peak during the months of July and August, when the snowbird population has yet to arrive. There are currently 586 male inmates and 154 female inmates in custody at the Charlotte County Jail. The population, demographically, is 83 percent white. At any time during the year, there are approximately 50-60 federal inmates. The facility receives a daily stipend of $84.61 per day per federal inmate. This translates into $29,400$35,000 per week. The need for an additional pod to be built has been requested. The infir mary is needed for the number of inmates that have medical issues and the increasing number of inmates with mental health issues. An on-site infirmary will also reduce off-site medical costs. The more inmates who can be treated at the facility the lower inmate health care costs will be. After this recent visit, its quite apparent the transition of jail commanders and program development continues to take place at the Charlotte County Jail. This positive approach has been key to making considerable strides in the ongoing effort to make Charlotte County a safe place to live and hopefully return the short-term visitors to productive individuals upon their release. A special thank you to Major Goodwyne, Deputy Dempster and Lt. Jessica Long for their contribution.Anthony Biell is a member of the Charlotte County Curmudgeon Club.Behind the Jail Walls one year later Anthony Biell rfnntnb r rfrntbr 487314

Our Town Page 12 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Saturday, October 25, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS NORTH PORT Carlos and Jimmy Fillis are hoping the third time will be the charm. After popular Jimmys Tacos locations in both Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte where they live didnt work out, and after years selling tacos from a food truck, the father and son have opened a North Port restaurant in Biscayne Plaza selling fresh, authentic Mexican food. Both men used to work in the circus, Jimmy in various roles a large photo of him performing hangs on the wall in the new location and Carlos as a trapeze artist for 12 years. For a while, they parked the food truck near the Port CharlotteNorth Port border by Cranberry Boulevard, near North Port Tire. Everybody knows our truck, Jimmy said, although now that they have a physical address, he has sold the truck, a model of which sits on a shelf in a corner of the dining room. And although he is involved in the restaurant, he considers himself retired. Carlos is the primary chef. And the menu is more extensive than just tacos. They serve tortas sandwiches burritos, fajitas and quesadillas, with any number of fillings including steak, shrimp and chorizo, along with a number of side dishes and appetizers, all made from fresh ingredients Carlos buys every morning before coming in to begin cooking each day. Carlos is also planning on expanding the menu soon to include chili rellenos, flautas, enchiladas, chimichangas and shrimp cocktails. We will also be selling, very soon, menudo (a traditional Mexican soup) and pozole, which is pork, like a ribeye, with hominy and vegetables, Carlos said. Everything is good. Prices on menu items range from $2 to $6, and they will also soon be serving beer and wine, he added. Carry-out is available. Carlos & Jimmys Tacos is located at 13648 Tamiami Trail in Biscayne Plaza, next to the Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections office. It is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and is closed on Sundays.

SHOOTING | 4NEW YORK Alarmed by the case of an Ebola-infected New York doctor, the gover nors of New Jersey and New York on Friday ordered a mandatory, 21-day quarantine of all medical workers and other arriving airline passengers who have had contact with victims of the deadly disease in West Africa. The move came after a physician who returned to New York City a week ago from treating Ebola patients in Guinea fell ill with the virus. Many New Yorkers were dismayed to learn that in the days after he came home, Dr. Craig Spencer rode the subway, took a cab, went bowling, visited a coffee shop and ate at a restaurant in the city of 8 million. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the case led them to conclude that the two states need precautions more rigorous than those of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which recommends monitor ing of exposed people for 21 days but doesnt require quarantine, in which they are kept away from others. Its too serious a situation to leave it to the honor system of compliance, Cuomo said. Those who are forcibly quarantined will be conned either to their homes or, if they live in other states, to some other place, most likely a medical facility, the governors said. Those quarantined at home will receive house calls from health ofcials. Twenty-one days is the incubation period for the Ebola virus. Dr. Howard Zucker, acting New York state health commissioner, said any medical personnel who have treated Ebola patients in the three Ebolaravaged West African countries Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia will be automatically quarantined.

The network had already completed lming of another season of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and was set to begin airing it at the end of this year. TLC wouldnt publicly cite a reason for the cancellation, but said in a statement that supporting the health and welfare of these remarkable children is our only priority. TLC is faithfully committed to the childrens ongoing comfort and well-being. The cancellation came after published reports that June Shannon was dating a man with a criminal past. HONEY BOO BOOInmate attacks lawyer, then gets life in prisonOKEMAH, Okla. (AP) Prosecutors say an Oklahoma inmate attacked his attorney with a razorblade moments before he was to be sentenced in the killings of two young girls and his ancee. District Attorney Max Cook says Kevin Sweat somehow smuggled the weapon into the courthouse in Okemah, about 70 miles east of Oklahoma City. He says the attorney only suffered slight wounds to the neck in Fridays attack and that he wasnt taken to a hospital. The attack caused a delay of about an hour. Following the commotion, Sweat appeared in court with a bandage on his nose and was sentenced to three life prison terms without the possibility of parole for the 2008 slayings of 11-year-old Skyla Whitaker and 13-year-old Taylor Paschal-Placker, and the 2011 killing of Ashley Taylor.Woman guilty of pushing husband off cliff appealsKALISPELL, Mont. (AP) A Montana woman has appealed her murder conviction for killing her husband of eight days by pushing him off a cliff in Glacier National Park. Attorneys for Jordan Graham argued in the appeal led with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that prosecutors distorted evidence to convince jurors that Graham planned to kill Cody Lee Johnson on July 7, 2013. Public defender Michael Donahoe also said the government changed its version of events several times throughout the case. Graham, of Kalispell, pleaded guilty to seconddegree murder, which doesnt involve premeditation, just before closing arguments at her trial. A judge rejected her motion to withdraw her guilty plea after she argued the governments recommended sentence of 50 years to life was an attempt to punish her for rst-degree murder.Washington city takes stock of tornado damageLONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) The southwest Washington city of Longview tallied the damage Friday from a rare tornado that tore off roofs, broke windows and uprooted trees, leaving residents and ofcials in disbelief. No one was injured in the Thursday after noon wind blast, which covered 1.3 miles and unleashed winds as high as 110 mph, the National Weather Service said.Lava stream from Hawaii volcano picks up speedHONOLULU (AP) A growing stream of lava threatening homes on Hawaiis Big Island is expanding and speeding up as it heads toward a small rural town. Ofcials say the lava advanced nearly 460 yards from Thursday morning to Friday. The narrow, leading edge of the lava ow is now just 250 yards from a side road, which has been closed. No evacuations have been ordered, and the residents of a home that is nearest to the ow already have left voluntarily. Hawaii County Civil Defense is planning to go door-to-door Saturday to nd out how many people might need shelter if the eruption continues at its current pace. Civil Defense Director Darryl Oliveira has said he will give residents three to ve days of notice before an evacuation order.Scientists say Rosettas comet is very stinky(LA Times) It turns out that the comet the Rosetta mission has been chasing for the last decade is a stinker. Literally. Researchers from the University of Bern in Switzerland say that if you could take a whiff of the cloud of gas surrounding the icy nucleus of comet 67P/ Churyumov-Gerasimenko you would smell a pungent mix of hydrogen sulde (rotten eggs); ammonia (horse stable); and formaldehyde. There would also be a hint of vinegar (sulfur dioxide) and a whiff of alcohol (methanol). Carbon disulde would add just a touch of sweetness, the scientists say. In all eau du Churyumov-Gerasimenko would be pretty unpleasant. The research team used the two mass spectrometers in Rosettas ROSINA instrument to determine what the comet would smell like.Bridge officials eye toll for sidewalk use SAN FRANCISCO (San Francisco Chronicle) Golden Gate Bridge district ofcials voted Friday to study charging a toll for pedestrians and bicyclists to cross the iconic span, despite strong opposition from cyclists and an effort by the San Francisco delegation to shelve the proposals. In a 10-9 vote that split almost entirely along San Francisco versus North Bay lines, the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District Board of Directors voted to keep the pedestrian and cyclist fee provisions in their 45-point strategic nancial plan. Director John Moylan of San Francisco voted with the majority to study the fee, while Director Kathrin Sears of Marin County voted with the bulk of the San Francisco delegation in its failed effort to kill the cyclist and pedestrian toll ideas. COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Pesky. Illegal. Effective? Lawn signs touting local and statewide candidates are in full bloom along highways, street corners and other public spaces. Its the sign of the season. And despite legal restrictions, the markers can sprout invasively. Campaigns hope voters see them as a signal of the communitys support for the candidate or issue. But repeat exposure can rub some the wrong way. They just mushroom, said Elizabeth Lessner, a central Ohio restaurateur. It used to be they put one sign on the corner and now theres 50. Lessner is one of the Columbus Sign Ninjas, a group that sprang up in the perennial battleground state to take down campaign clutter from public spaces. State and local sign laws can vary. Ohio, like other states, prohibits such advertising from be ing placed in the public right of way which would include interstates and state routes. Ofcials dont want signs to obstruct drivers views or present safety hazards. The ninja members use social media to report signs and occasionally call out campaigns seen as big offenders. Some candidates have apologized for their sign placement on the groups Facebook page, which boasts nearly 300 members. Karen Thomas, a Columbus resident and ninja member, has been uprooting stray signs since 2008. Her rst take came after she passed multiple markers near the interstate exit for a mall. Thomas recalled, If I want them to go away, Im going to have to pull over and pick them up. So she did. And she continues to snatch signs when she runs errands, carefully avoiding vehicles that whiz by her. I dont lollygag, said Thomas, a corporate nancial consultant. Its not just residents who get irked by the signage. In Providence, R.I., large signs for his opponent led to a complaint from Republican mayoral candidate Dan Harrop. Harrop told the city solicitors ofce this week that signs for independent candidate Buddy Cianci far exceed the size allowed by city ordinances. Signs are a fast, cheap and easy way to grow name recognition and increase a candidates visibility in a neighborhood. Theyve been around since the infancy of the countrys democracy, said Benjamin Bates, a professor of communication studies at Ohio University. Candidates and their supporters will place signs near the roadways because they hope more voters will see them. Its sort of the principle that any publicity is good publicity, Bates said.Pesky, effective?

Signs touting local and statewide candidates are in full bloom along highways, street corners and public rights of way. NEW YORK (AP) Amazons trademark smile icon is becoming more of a grimace. The worlds largest online retailer reported a wider third-quarter loss than analysts expected and gave a disappointing holiday forecast. Investors are increasingly irked by Amazons strategy of investing heavily in new products and services to spur revenue growth while reporting quarter after quarter of losses or thin prot. The stock price tumbled 7 percent to $291 in morning trading Friday. Thats on top of the 22 percent decline the stock has already suffered this year. Chief Financial Ofcer Thomas Szkutak said the company had to be selective in taking on new projects. For years, Amazons strategy has been spending the money it makes to grow and expand into new areas. It launched a smartphone, the Fire, this summer and has been offering a set-top video-streaming device, a streaming video service and several tablets and e-book readers. The company has also been investing in ser vices for its $99-a-year loyalty program, Prime. It has added a grocery delivery service and music streaming for Prime members as well as offering original TV shows such as the critically acclaimed Transparent starring Jeffrey Tambor. But all of those initiatives cost money and time to develop. And not all of them have been hits. The companys splashy launch of its Fire phone was quickly followed by mediocre reviews and a steep price cut to entice buyers. Amazon said it took a charge of $170 million related to inventory evaluation and supplier commitment costs for the Fire, although it did not give further details. Amazon has about $83 million of Fire phone inventory at the end of the quarter. So investors are increasingly signaling that Amazon needs to work harder at turning a prot. The market was looking for more in terms of revenue and operating income and the fourth-quar ter outlook, said Morningstar analyst R.J. Hottovy. Its going to be a competitive landscape for retailers this holiday season and retailers will compete aggressively for consumers. In a conference call with analysts, Szkutak said the company is focused on using its capital wisely so that over time we get good returns on invested capital. But he agreed the company needed to choose new projects carefully. We certainly have been in several years now of what I will call in investment mode, he said. Theres still lots of opportunity in front of us but we know that we have to be very selective about which opportunities we pursue. Net loss for the quarter was $437 million, or 95 cents per share, far steeper than the loss of 76 cents per share analysts were expecting, according to FactSet.

The police department in Grand Rapids posted a photo on its Facebook page showing the squirrel peering out from the rear window of the car, next to a half-opened window. The animal didnt spend any time behind bars, however. It soon went free.ODD NEWS Squirrel ends up in back seat of police car home to rolling hills and horse farms. The man Graham was last seen with, 32-year-old Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr., has been charged with abduction with intent to dele Graham. His attor ney, Jim Camblos, said in a voicemail greeting that he is not answering questions about the case. The remains were discovered roughly 6 miles from where the body of 20-year-old Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington was found after she vanished in 2009. Police have said forensic evidence connects Matthew to Harringtons killing, which in turn is linked by DNA to a 2005 sexual assault in northern Virginia. Matthew has been charged in the 2005 case. When we started this journey together we all hoped for a happier ending. Sadly that was not to be, Grahams parents, John and Sue Graham, said in a statement provided by the Albemarle County Police Department. We are devastated by the loss of our beautiful daughter. ... Although we have lost our precious Hannah, the light she radiated can never be extinguished. Grahams parents also thanked those involved with the investigation and search efforts, as well as those who have sent messages of support. They said they dont intend to make further statements or comment on the ongoing criminal investigation. Albemarle County Commonwealths Attorney Denise Lunsford said in a statement that the focus of the investigation now is to determine what charges will be brought and the appropriate time to make those charges. We are working diligently with local law enforcement on the investigation to ensure that we make the best determination for our community and the Grahams in the pursuit of justice, Lunsford said. Graham met friends at a restaurant for dinner Sept. 12 before stopping by two off-campus par ties. She left the second party alone and eventually texted a friend saying she was lost, authorities said. In surveillance video, she can be seen walking unsteadily and even running at times, past a pub and a service station and then onto a seven-block strip of bars, restaurants and shops. Matthew was an oper ating room technician at the universitys hospital. He was also a former college football lineman and sometimes cab driver. Friends have said they were shocked the gentle giant hes 6-foot-2 and weighs 270 pounds could be suspected of such violence. Matthew was cocaptain of his high school football team and enrolled in psychology at evangelist Jerry Falwells Liberty University, where he played on the defensive line for the Flames.GRAHAMFROM PAGE 1 law and unilateral use of force. If the United State fails to abandon its desire of eternal domination, then hopes for peaceful and stable development will be illusory, and todays upheavals will her ald the collapse of global world order, Putin said during a meeting that lasted about three hours in the Black Sea resort of Sochi. His voice strained with anger, Putin accused the U.S. and its allies of trying to tailor the world exclusively to their needs since the end of the Cold War, using economic pressure and military force and often supporting extremist groups to achieve their goals. He cited the wars in Iraq, Libya and Syria as examples of awed moves that have led to chaos and left Washington and its allies ghting against the results of their own policy. They are throwing their might to remove the risks they have created themselves, and they are paying an ever-increasing price, Putin said. Unilateral diktat and attempts to enforce their own cliche on others bring opposite result: escalation of conicts instead of their settlement, widening area of chaos in place of stable sovereign states, support for dubious elements from open neo-Nazis to Islamic radicals instead of democracy. He said that Russia has been cold-shouldered by the West, despite its eagerness to cooperate. The U.S. and the European Union imposed tough sanctions on Russia after it annexed the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea populated mostly by Russian speakers, and allegedly armed rebels ghting for independence in eastern Ukraine. Putin also has maintained support for President Bashar Assad of Syria in a civil war that has helped destabilize the Middle East. The U.S. has demanded that the Syrian leader step down. In Washington, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki reacted to Putins speech by saying the U.S. does not seek confrontation with Russia, but we cannot and will not compromise on the principles on which security in Europe and North America rest. She said there may be disagreements, but we remain committed to upholding Ukraines sovereignty and territorial integrity.PUTINFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTORussian President Vladimir Putin speaks at a meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, Russia, Friday. about their contact with Ebola sufferers. The governors gave no estimate of how many travelers would be subject to quarantine, but Cuomo said were not talking about a tremendous volume of people coming in from these areas, and added that there are no plans to hire more screeners at airports. The two states are home to Kennedy Airport and Newark Liberty in New Jersey, both major international portals. Ofcials said they would track ight connections and screen passengers upon disembarking. However, they offered few details on how the quarantine would be enforced and what the consequences would be for people who violated the restrictions by going out in public. The White House did not have an immediate reaction to Cuomo and Christies directives. Ofcials said Friday the administration was regularly reviewing its policies but indicated they were satised with the measures it has put in place, including steps that call on recent arrivals from West Africa to monitor their health and notify state and local authorities of their presence in their communities. White House ofcials have said states are entitled to impose additional requirements beyond those set by the CDC. The CDC said it sets baseline recommended standards, but state and local ofcials have the prerogative to tighten the regimen as they see t. The agency also said, When it comes to the federal standards set by the CDC, we will consider any measures that we believe have the potential to make the American people safer. Spencer, a 33-year-old emergency room doctor, returned to the U.S. on Oct. 17 and sought treatment Thursday after suffering diarrhea and a 100.3-degree fever. He was listed in stable condition at a special isolation unit at Bellevue Hospital Center, and a decontamination company was sent to his Harlem home. His ancee, who was not showing symptoms, was being watched in a quarantine ward at Bellevue. Spencers illness led lawmakers on Capitol Hill, scientists and ordinary New Yorkers to wonder why he was out on the town after his return and why stronger steps werent being taken to quarantine medical workers. Health ofcials said he followed U.S. and international guidelines in checking his temperature every day and watching for symptoms, and that he put no one at risk. But others said he should have been quarantined, either voluntarily or by the government, during the incubation period.EBOLAFROM PAGE 1 identied as student Jaylen Fryberg, a government ofcial with direct knowledge of the shooting told The Associated Press. The ofcial spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. Students and parents said Fryberg was a freshman who played on the high school football team. He was introduced at a football game as the schools 2014 Homecoming court freshmen class prince, according to a video shot by parent Jim McGauhey. Marysville Police Commander Robb Lamoureux said the gunman died of a self-inicted wound, but he could not provide more details. Three of the people shot by Fryberg had head wounds and were in critical condition. Two young women were taken to Providence Everett Medical Center, and a 15-year-old boy was at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, hospital ofcials said. Another victim, a 14-year-old boy, was listed in serious condition at Harborview as well, the hospital said. Inside the cafeteria, witnesses described Fryberg as methodical. Brian Patrick said his daughter, a freshman, was 10 feet from him when the shooting occurred. She ran from the cafeteria and immediately called her mother. Patrick said his daughter told him, The guy walked into the cafeteria, pulled out a gun and started shooting. No arguing, no yelling. Student Austin Taylor, told KING-TV that the shooter was just staring down every one of his victims as he shot them. Malia Grato, a junior, said she heard a few pops, then the re alarm and began ling out of her classroom. She didnt realize something was seriously wrong until teachers started shouting that there had been a shooting. It was scary because its happened in a lot of schools, but you never re ally imagine it will happen in yours, said Grato, who said she was friendly with Fryberg and described him as a quiet, good guy. Outside the school, students started streaming out of the building, with some trying to jump a fence to get away, witnesses said. Cedar Parker, a 17-yearold senior, said he was driving away from campus when the shooting happened. He let several students into his car as he heard others yelling for their friends: Where are you? A crowd of parents waited in a parking lot outside a nearby church where they were being reunited with their children. Buses pulled up periodically to drop off students evacuated from the school, with some running to hug their mothers or fathers. Patrick said after the shooting, his other daughter, a senior at the school, called him hysterical from her classroom. I thought, God let my kids be safe, he said. FBI spokeswoman Ayn Dietrich said the agency was assisting local law en forcement and providing specialists to work with victims and their families. Marysville-Pilchuck High School has many students from the Tulalip Indian tribe. State Sen. John McCoy, a tribal member, said the shooting had devastated the community. Were all related in one shape or form. We live and work and play together, he said.SHOOTINGFROM PAGE 1 NEW YORK (Newsday) The hatchet attack on two NYPD ofcers from Long Island was a terrorist act carried out by a homegrown radical who converted to Islam and harbored extreme anti-government views, police said Friday. We at this time believe that he acted alone, Police Commissioner William Bratton said of the attacker, Zale Thompson, at a news brieng in Manhattan Friday. We would describe him as self-radicalized. We would describe him as self-directed in his activities. Thompson, 32, struck Ofcer Kenneth Healey, 25, in the head with the hatchet and Ofcer Joseph Meeker, 24, in his arm in Jamaica, Queens, before police fatally shot him Thursday afternoon. Healey of Oceanside whose father is a veteran Nassau County police detective in the First Squad was in critical but stable condition Friday, while Meeker of Oakdale was released from the hospital, ofcials said. A 29-year-old female bystander also was critically injured when a bullet red by one of the ofcers struck her in her back. A police source said the woman may be left partially paralyzed. Thompson left an extensive trail of online communications demonstrating antiWestern, anti-government and in some cases anti-white sentiments, but did not appear to have connections to international terror, said John Miller, New York Police Department deputy commissioner of intelligence and counterterrorism. He recently browsed websites related to extremist groups including Islamic State and al-Qaida, viewed content about beheadings, and read about Wednesdays shooting of a Canadian soldier by a gunman in Ottawa, which also is being investigated as a terror ist attack. Thompson, who was involuntarily discharged from the Navy in the early 2000s, possibly because of drug use, was not on any terror watch lists and appeared to be a lone wolf attacker radicalized on the Internet, police said. This was a terrorist attack, certainly, Bratton said. Thompson had lived with his father until two days before the attack but moved out after an argument, police said. He converted to Islam about two years ago, police said, and had a history of domestic violence arrests in California.

The Sun /Saturday, October 25, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 5 WORLD NEWS | WORLDGunman in Canada attack complained about mosqueVANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) The gunman who shot and killed a soldier in plain daylight then stormed Canadas Parliament once complained that a Vancouver mosque he attended was too liberal and inclusive, and was kicked out after he repeatedly spent the night there even though ofcials told him to stop, Muslim leaders said Friday. Aasim Rashid, spokesman for the British Columbia Muslim Association, said Michael Zehaf-Bibeau visited the Masjid Al-Salaam mosque for three to four months toward the end of 2011, and possibly early 2012, before he was told not to come back. Rashid said that before Zehaf-Bibeau got in trouble for using the mosque for accommodations, he had complained to leaders in the previous administration about the mosques openness and willingness to let non-Muslims visit.Attack on Egypt army post kills 30EL-ARISH, Egypt (AP) A coordinated assault on an army checkpoint in the Sinai Peninsula killed 30 Egyptian troops on Friday, making it the deadliest single attack in decades on the military, which has been struggling to stem a wave of violence by Islamic extremists since the overthrow of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. Ofcials described it as a well-planned attack that began with a car bomb which may have been set off by a suicide attacker. Other militants then red rocket-propelled grenades, striking a tank carrying ammunition and igniting a secondary explosion. Roadside bombs intended to target rescuers struck two army vehicles, seriously wounding a senior ofcer.Queen sends 1st tweet LONDON (Bloomberg) Twitter reigns. At least it does now that the queen of the British Empire has tapped out her rst tweet, from Fridays opening of an exhibition at the Science Museum in Central London.

Elizabeth R. she broadcast in 135-char acters using the Twitter handle BritishMonarchy. Queen Elizabeth joins other high-prole Twittergreats like Pope Francis who have been using the microblogging service as the go-to platform for mass communication.

Still, the agency warned its not clear whether any of these will work against the deadly virus that has already killed at least 4,877 people this year in West Africa. Dr. Marie-Paule Kieny from the U.N. health agency told reporters that those doses could be available in 2015 if early tests proved that the two leading experimental vaccines are safe and provoke enough of an immune response to protect people from being infected with Ebola.Vienna honors deserters from Hitlers armyVIENNA (AP) Austrias president apologized Friday for his countrys postwar treatment of deserters from Hitlers army as traitors, at the unveiling of a memorial honoring those who ed military duty rather than serve under the Nazi regime. The ceremony in Vienna was also attended by municipal dignitaries as well as some of those who deserted from the Wehrmacht and suffered indignities for decades. All are in their late 80s or older, including Richard Wadani, who has lobbied for more than a decade for the memorial. He called the unveiling a happy occasion. Speaking earlier, President Heinz Fischer criticized the indignities surviving deserters have had to suffer over the past decades. Fischer said labeling them as traitors is something for which one has to apologize and shame himself.Belgian chocolate company is latest to doff ISIS name(Washington Post) The ravages of the Islamic State have been one of the dominant news stories of 2014. But before this year, few were even aware of the organization. Originally a splinter of al-Qaida, it has shaken foreign governments in ways its former parent never could. Among those who hadnt heard of the ter rorist group was Desiree Libeert, marketing manager of Belgian chocolate company Italo Suisse. The chocolate maker changed its name late last year to ISIS, which also happens to be an acronym popularly used to refer to the Islamic State. Italo Suisse was the companys name since 1923, reecting the European chocolatemaking traditions it sought to bring to Belgium. We chose ISIS as that was the brand name of our pralines and tablets, Libeert told Reuters. Had we known there was a terrorist organization with the same name, we would have never chosen that. According to Reuters, the chocolate company makes more than 5,000 tons of chocolate annually. Its website is still branded ISIS Chocolates and has a frankly ador able About Us section, including this guarantee: Every time the connoisseur samples a piece of our chocolate or one of our lled chocolates he/she is assured a moment of pure pleasure. This assurance extends to ISIS Christmas or St. Nicholas themed chocolate gures or eggs and bunnies for Easter. But the mayhem and slaughter carried out by Islamic State militants has compelled ISIS chocolates to change its name. We had international customers saying that they could no longer stock our chocolate as consumers had only negative associations with the name, Libeert told Reuters. MURSITPINAR, Turkey (AP) New allegations have emerged that Islamic State extremists have expanded their arsenal with chlorine bombs and captured ghter jets weapons that could help the militants in Iraq and Syria. Kurdish ghters in the key Syrian border town of Kobani have held off a monthlong offensive by the Islamic State group with the help of a U.S.-led campaign of airstrikes. Turkeys president said he will allow Syrian rebels to transit through his country to help the towns beleaguered defenders, but both the Kurds and the rebels denied any such plan was in the works, underscoring differences over strategy that are hindering efforts to roll back the extremists. In Iraq, ofcials said Islamic State militants used chlorine gas during ghting with security forces and Shiite militiamen last month north of Baghdad. If the reports are conrmed, it would be the rst time the Sunni extremists tried to use chlorine since their seizure of large parts of Syria and northern Iraq earlier this year. The statements in Iraq came two days after Kurdish ofcials and doctors said they believed IS militants had released some kind of toxic gas in an eastern district of Kobani. Aysa Abdullah, a senior Kurdish ofcial based in the town, mentioned the attack took place late Tuesday and that some people suffered symptoms that included dizzi ness and watery eyes. She and other ofcials said doctors lacked the equipment to establish what kinds of chemicals were used. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said he could not conrm the Iraqi allegations that toxic gas was used against security forces and Shiite militias, but he called the charges extremely serious. He said chlorine can be considered a chemical weapon if it is mixed with other toxic agents. The use of any chemical weapon is an abhorrent act, Kerry said at a news conference in Washington. Its against international law. And these recent allegations underscore the impor tance of the work that we are currently engaged in. Three Iraqi ofcials a senior security ofcial, a local ofcial from Duluiya and an ofcial from Balad told The Associated Press that the Islamic State group used bombs with chlorine-lled cylinders during clashes in late September in the two towns. The militants have failed to capture both Duluiya, 45 miles north of Baghdad, and Balad, 80 kilometers north of the Iraqi capital.Islamic State said to be using chlorine bombs in arsenal CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) The falling oil prices that are providing relief to drivers around the world threaten to bring more misery to the life of Milagro Alvarez and millions of other Venezuelans, whose country depends almost exclusively on oil revenue. The math teacher has been getting up before dawn each day and rushing out to hunt for disposable diapers, one of scores of products that have been in short supply due to price restrictions and currency controls put in place by the socialist government long before the slide in petroleum prices. The government says were a rich country, so why do we have to stand in line and beg to buy diapers? said Alvarez, standing under a pink umbrella to protect her self and her 5-month-old daughter Annabeth from the blazing sun after three hours queued up in front of a Farmatodo store. Now Venezuela is suddenly a lot less rich, and many fear those lines will just get longer. The country with the worlds largest oil reserves was struggling to keep shelves lled even when crude was selling for $100 a barrel or more. Now prices for benchmark Brent crude have fallen $28 in the past four months, to $86, the result of too much supply and weaker global demand. In Venezuela, where 95 percent of exports are oil, the decline represents a huge loss of income to pay for everything from imported milk to foreign debt, from social programs to billions in subsidized oil for allies in the Caribbean and Central America. Bank of America estimates that for every dollar that oil prices drop, the state loses $770 million in net revenue over a year. That puts revenue $12 billion a year below peak levels if current prices hold. Venezuela already has one of the worlds biggest scal decits, estimated at 15 percent of GDP, and even before the latest slide was considering selling its American subsidiary Citgo Petroleum Corp. to raise cash.Venezuelans brace for oil price slump rfnt b ff t n n t fntb rn nn f t f n nt b fnn$54.99. on a handbag, watch or wallet valued at $50-$75 on a handbag, watch or wallet valued at $76-$125 on a handbag, watch or wallet valued at $126-$199 on a handbag, watch or wallet valued at $200 or moreHANDBAG & WATCH TRADE-INr ffnr tbffbfr rfrfrf ntr nrrrtttrr 50473270 skechers1 \_1 Q.''

My new broker, like other professionals, including many nancial magazine articles, thinks the stock market is going to crash soon because the Federal Reserve will unexpectedly raise rates. He wants me to cash out, lock in my gains and put the money in the Lord Abbett Short Duration Income Fund. This fund raises its rates as the Fed raises rates, and it currently pays 3.7 percent. Then when rates stop rising and the market turns up, he says I should sell the Lord Abbett and go back into stocks. Im also considering a gamble to buy 50 shares of Rolls-Royce at $92 a share. I heard from a Lexus salesman that Rolls-Royce is going to make a small high-end sports car to sell between $70,000 and $90,000. DF, Indianapolis Dear DF: This guy sounds like a new broker. I dont have a problem with the Lord Abbett Short Duration Income Fund (LALDX-$4.52), but I do have a problem with the 2.25 percent commission the brokster would earn on $313,000. Stay the course and dont sell a single share. You may be surprised to know that Rolls-Royce (RYCEY), now $65, primarily makes engines for civilian and military planes and defense aerospace markets. It makes marine propulsion systems and power systems for the oil and gas industries. RYCEY also makes the gears, wheels, controls, bearings, seals, and other attendant parts. A close acquaintance of mine says Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW. DE-$82) in Munich makes the Rolls-Royce passenger car. And he hasnt heard a word about a Rolls-Royce sports car. So stay away. Your broker is a meathead, and so are you if you follow his advice. The Fed has been gradually preparing investors for rising rates. The Fed knows it must carefully walk investors through this because if rates rose abruptly, the Dow could fall by 25 to 30 percent. Since then-Chairman Ben Bernankes announcement early last summer that the Fed would cut back on quantitative easing, investors have expected that rates will rise gradually. My 50 years in this business has taught me that signicantly more money has been lost by investors trying to anticipate corrections than has been lost in the corrections themselves. The Dow has had some very scary drops in the past 30 years but has always rallied higher. And the risk of missing a rally while avoiding a market drop can be injurious to your wealth. According to Putnam Investments, those who missed the markets 10 best days over the past 15 years would have had annualized gains of 2.1 percent, versus about 6.5 percent for portfolios that remained fully invested. Email Malcolm Berko at mjberko@yahoo.com.Dont sell Malcolm Berko An eight-page article in the Sept. 13 issue of Economist Magazine titled Little Brother reported on how technology is dramatically changing the face of advertising. I thought I would pass along some things of interest to those who advertise on the Internet and to those who are recipients of that advertising. Little brother, a host of businesses that watch what we do online, put data together on what sites we visit and what we look at there. They use it to deliver customdesigned ads to us about products we might be interested in. Collecting data on customers is not new. Almost every business does it, or should. They do it so they can tailor their ads to individuals who might need what they sell. Whats new is the scale of data collection and the methods by which it is used. There are many Internet data gatherers: e-commerce sites, search engines, third parties that troll the Internet for data, and social media such as Facebook. They add to it data from credit companies. They collect the data for their own use, and sell it to others. They can compile up to 100 data points on us including age, sex, ZIP code, income, family and business connections, what we are shopping for, our personal inter ests and a lot more. For example, BlueKai has les on 1 billion people with an average of 50 data points on each. Advertisers are making use of this data through what is called programmatic buying of ads. This is an automated system of bidding on the delivery of an online ad to a specic customer. The auctions, conducted by computers using algorithms, take place in milliseconds. The high bidder gets his ad delivered within a few more milliseconds. Sometimes the ad is displayed to the target as soon as the page he is visiting loads. Not only that, but the content of the ad can be instantaneously changed to t the targets prole. Conversant, a digital marketing rm, is reported to have the capacity to deliver up to 800,000 versions of a particular ad. How does it work in practice? I experienced it over the past few weeks. Searched online for hotels on the island of St. Martin for a possible get away. Open email and low and behold ads for St. Martin hotels and airlines that will take us there. Searched online for a piece of furniture we might buy. Open email and lo and behold ads tailored to what we were considering. Not generic ads, but ones for specic items we might be interested in. Is little brother bad for us? Setting aside the privacy issue, I say no. Such ads can bring to our attention exactly what we are looking for. The Port Charlotte SCORE Biz Academy is coming soon.

After weeks of speculation over the fate of Europes economy, Ebola fears and plunging oil prices, investors were able to get back to basics. Wall Street is in the midst of one of the busiest times of the year, when companies report their quarterly results. Ultimately what drives stock prices higher is the potential for a company to earn more, so higher prots generally mean higher stock prices. What matters most to the market are earnings expectations and corporate fundamentals, and so far theyre looking pretty good, said Michael Arone, chief investment strategist at State Street Global Advisors. Prots for S&P 500 companies are up 5.6 per cent from a year ago this earnings season, according to FactSet. That growth is better than the 4.6 percent increase the market was expecting. Quarterly results from Microsoft and UPS helped lift stocks Friday, but there have been other strong reports this week. Caterpillar, 3M, Apple and others have all come in well above expectations. Microsofts sales and prots were well-above analysts expectations. Cloud services, a business the company has focused on, also grew. Microsoft rose $1.11, or 2.5 percent, to $46.13. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 127.51 points, or 0.8 percent, to 16,805.41. The Standard & Poors 500 index added 13.76 points, or 0.7 percent, to 1,964.58 and the Nasdaq composite rose 30.92 points, or 0.7 percent, to 4,483.72. The S&P 500 rose 4.1 percent for the week, its biggest gain since January 2013. But volatility can go both ways. Just as the market jumped sharply this week, it plunged just as sharply last week. The index is still down 0.4 percent for October.US stock market has good week FiR A-*dYSr oo .. .. .. ,

The Sun /Saturday, October 25, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 9 STATE NEWS JACKSONVILLE (AP) Charlie Crist walked into a Jacksonville senior center to encourage folks to vote early when 79-year-old Helen Dowdy walked up to him with a big smile. I want a picture with you! she said, clearly enamored with the former Republican governor who is now seeking his old job as a Democrat. I want one with you! Crist replied and put his arm around her. There may not be another Florida politician thats better at working a room than Crist. He makes eye contact, shakes voters hands with both of his and makes everyone he meets feel like they are the most important person in the room. But does Crist have specic, concrete plans for Floridas future if voters decide to return him to ofce? Republican Gov. Rick Scott says no. Crist says yes. The answer is probably somewhere in the middle. Crist publicly and in his TV ads has been more focused on tearing down Scott as a mega-millionaire who is out of touch with everyday Floridians. But beyond the negative ads and the I know you are but what am I? mentality of the race, Crist hasnt talked much about policies hed push if voters give him back his old job. Everything would be new from what it is now under Scott. People have asked me, What would you change if you win from what Gov. Scott is doing? Everything, Crist said before pausing and repeating the word. Everything. Scott said Crist is all talk and no action and hasnt laid out a vision for Florida. Theres nothing hes for, Scott said. Ive had people tell me that when they tried to come in and talk to him about policy, hed say, I dont do policy. He had no ideas. Crist said if voters want to know how he would govern in the future, they can look at his rst time in ofce: He vows to ght for education, the environment and restoring rights for nonviolent felons, among other things. Im the same person Ive always been, Crist said. Once the annual legislative session ended in May, Scott hit the road and each week made a policy announcement about what he would do in his second term in ofce. The ideas ranged from port development to proposed tax cuts. By comparison, Crist hasnt had many policy rollouts. He has said that the rst thing hed do if elected is push to expand Medicaid coverage for Floridians who earn too much to be azded in the health care program for the poor, but not enough to pay for coverage under President Obamas health care overhaul. He also has said he would use state incentives to help established small businesses in Florida rather than lure out-of-state corporations, which Scott has done. And during a Jacksonville barber shop visit, Corey Wilborn told Crist that Floridas stand your ground law that allows people to use deadly force if they believe their lives are threatened has allowed an assault on young African-Americans. I think we can change it. Not if Rick Scott wins, Crist said. He thinks its just ne. What kind of changes would we make? Wilborn, 34, asked as a barber worked on his hair. Because what we have now is just unacceptable. What would you like to do? Crist asked, sitting in another barbers chair. And that is classic Crist saying he wants to do what people want him to do. He accepts the populist label, calls himself the peoples governor, and whether as a Republican or Democrat, he is seen as a moderate. Crist argument: Hes not Rick Scott CRIST SCOTT | HEADLINE NEWS | FROM AROUND THE STATEPanama City Beach adopts new spring break rulesPANAMA CITY BEACH (AP) Spring break will have a different look in Panama City Beach. City officials on Thursday approved a new set of rules designed to tone down spring break. Bars will close at 2 a.m. during March, and those drinking on the beach will be required to have government-issued picture identification cards. The News Herald of Panama City reports the council delayed a decision on an ordinance that would limit the number of events on the beach during spring break. It would also require organizers of events with 500 or more people to get city permits and provide fencing, security, emer gency personnel and traffic control. A workshop is scheduled for Nov. 12.Man who killed intruder arrested on gun chargeSARASOTA (AP) Authorities say a man who fatally shot an intruder inside his home now faces charges of illegally possessing the handgun he fired. The Sarasota HeraldTribune reports 36-yearold Christopher Bane was arrested Thursday on a felony charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Bane was convicted of felony possession of marijuana with intent to sell in March 2001. He said he wasnt aware he is a convicted felon. Bane told deputies he fatally shot 22-yearold Calvin Yoder early Tuesday after hearing glass break. He came face-to-face with Yoder as he tried to open his sons door and they exchanged gunre. Bane wasnt hit. Bane was released on $7,500 bail. rffn t btb ntt t f nn n n bb frnnb NATIONAL FLOORINGSALE! bttnfnnnntrntntfnnnfnn nnbnnrnnf ntfLicense#AAA00101150 HURRY!

This week, they lost their manager. The Rays announced Friday that Joe Maddon has opted out of the nal year of his contract, ending his nine-year tenure with the organization. Joe Maddon has exercised an opt-out in his current contract, a contract which was not scheduled to expire until after the 2015 season, Rays owner Stuart Sternberg said in a statement. We tried diligently and aggressively to sign Joe to a third contract extension prior to his decision. As of yesterday afternoon, Joe enabled himself to explore opportunities throughout Major League Baseball. He will not be managing the Rays in 2015. Maddon and the Rays had been in contract extension talks over the past several days. President of baseball operations Matt Silverman said the offers presented to Maddon were very generous, but it became clear from his responses that it was not an exercise that was going to lead to an outcome.

Cains RBI groundout three batters in put the Royals ahead, and Kansas City expanded its lead to 3-0 in the sixth when Alex Gordon hit an RBI double off Cain and scored on Eric Hosmers single off left-hander Javier Lopez.

Herrera, Brandon Finnegan, Wade Davis and Greg Holland combined for four innings of hitless relief, the longest in a Series game in 22 years.

SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. Ted Bishop was ousted Friday as president of the PGA of America over a sexist tweet and Facebook post directed at Ian Poulter. Bishop was irritated by remarks Poulter made in his book on the Ryder Cup captaincy of Nick Faldo in 2008 and Tom Watson this year. He referred to Poulter as Lil Girl on Twitter when stacking up Poulters feats next to Faldo. In a Facebook post, he noted that Watson (with eight majors) and Faldo (with six majors and the Ryder Cup record for most points) were getting bashed by Poulter. Really? Sounds like a little school girl squealing during recess. CMON MAN! he wrote. The PGA of America board voted Friday to remove him, meaning Bishop will not be invited to future PGA Championships and Ryder Cups, or any other courtesies extended to past presidents. He is the rst PGA president to be ousted. Bishop had one month left on his two-year term. Bishop, who has two daughters, apologized to Poulter and anyone else I might have offended in a statement he sent to The Associated Press. But the head pro from Indiana went down swinging. Bishop said his fellow PGA ofcers asked him to resign Friday and he refused, wanting instead to apologize in person to the board and let the process run its course. The board heard me out and then voted to impeach me, he said. That is the due process and I respect that, as painful as it might be. In removing Bishop as president, the PGA of America board said the remarks were inconsistent with associations policies. The PGA of America understands the enormous responsibility it has to lead this great game and to enrich lives in our society through golf, PGA chief executive Pete Bevacqua said in a statement. We must demand of ourselves that we make golf both welcoming and inclusive to all who want to experience it, and everyone at the PGA of America must lead by example. Henleys putting gets him lead at Sea Island: Playing for the first time since Sept. 14 at the Tour Championship, Russell Henley one-putted 10 greens on the Seaside course at Sea Island and tied his personal best on the PGA Tour with a 7-under 63 to take a one-shot lead into the weekend at the McGladrey Classic in St. Simons Island, Ga. Henley opened with a bogey on No. 10 and was simply trying to keep warm. The only 63 on his mind was whether the temperature would get that high. It did, and he got hot with his best club in the bag the putter. He managed to turn a horrible drive into a birdie on the 18th hole at the turn, the start of six birdies over his last 10 holes. That put him at 9-under 131, one shot ahead of Brendon de Jonge (64), Brian Harman (67) and Andrew Svoboda (66). Whiteford leads at Perth International: Peter Whiteford of Scotland had back-to-back rounds of 66 to hold a one-shot lead at the halfway mark of the Perth International in Perth, Australia. Whiteford, who needs to finish first or outright second to retain his European Tour card, moved to 12 under with an eagle on the par-5 7th his 16th hole to move ahead of Denmarks Thorbjorn Olesen, who followed up his first-round 64 with a 69. Heavy rain washes out LPGA: In Hainan Island, China, heavy rain washed out the Blue Bay LPGA, forcing tour officials to cut the inaugural event from 72 to 54 holes. Jessica Korda topped the leaderboard after the first round at 6-under 66. The 21-year-old American had yet to start the second round when play was called off. Michelle Wie and Chinese star Shanshan Feng were a stroke back. Cook, Dawson share Champions lead: In San Antonio, John Cook and Marco Dawson shot 7-under 65 to share the first-round lead in the Champions Tours AT&T Championship, the final full-field event of the season. Scott Dunlap was a stroke back at TPC San Antonio, and Jay Hass was at 67 along with Guy Boros, Bart Bryant, Gary Hallberg, Jay Hass, Tom Lehman, Peter Senior, Wes Short Jr., and Kirk Triplett. Cook won the event in 2007 and 2008 at Oak Hills.

Guthrie pitched ve innings to earn the win. AUTO RACING NOTEBOOKUnlikely duo doggedly chase titleMARTINSVILLE, Va. NASCARs new championship format came with fan-friendly brackets that likely had fans advancing Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. deep into the playoffs. Instead, both drivers were eliminated last week and the third round begins Sunday at Martinsville Speedway with a few surprises. Among them? Carl Edwards and Ryan Newman, two drivers few predicted would still be eligible at this stage of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Both capitalized on poor performances by Earnhardt and Johnson in the last round of the Chase to advance, and Newman really raised his game. He has led at least one lap each of the last three races and scored three top-10 nishes. Weve been really consistent our strength has been our consistency, Newman said. But in saying that, our last three races have been the strength of our consistency. Having a sixth, a seventh and a fth when it really matters was important to us. Well just keep digging. Dont really care what other people say if we should be here or if we shouldnt be here. The fact is we are. He and Edwards go into Martinsville on Sunday hoping to kick-start a strong round that elevates them into the nal four. NASCAR will crown the champion at the Nov. 16 nale at Homestead, where the Sprint Cup will go to the highest nishing driver of the four. Edwards has two wins this season but has been mediocre in the Chase. He squeezed through in the rst round, then beneted from Earnhardt and Johnsons struggles in the second. That doesnt matter now as the points are reset and the remaining eight drivers begin Sunday on equal ground. We admittedly have not been a dominant team, so this Chase format gives us an opportunity to be tied for the points lead with four races left. Thats great, he said. Edwards has advanced despite his impending departure from Roush Fenway Racing. He announced in August hes moving to Joe Gibbs Racing after the season, and his No. 99 team could have folded. Instead, theyve been the strength of RFR. Its been great and its surprised me at how much hasnt changed since I announced I was leaving, Edwards said. McMurray nabs pole: Jamie McMurray pulled off a surprise at Martinsville Speedway with a pole-winning run in qualifying. McMurray is not one of the eight drivers qualified to race for the Sprint Cup title, and his qualifying record of 99.905 mph nudged six champion ship-eligible drivers in the final round of qualifying. Kevin Harvick failed to advance out of the first round and will start 33rd, worst of all the Chase drivers. SHR swaps crews: When Kurt Busch was eliminated from title contention, it became apparent to both the driver and his owner that any change would need to be done soon. Stewart-Haas Racing will swap the crew chiefs for Busch and Danica Patrick beginning next week, giving each driver three races to work with their new teams. NASCAR has issued a ban on testing next season, so SHR believes it is giving its two teams a head-start on 2015.BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESSEdwards and Newman outlast favoritesAP PHOTOCarl Edwards leaves the garage after practice for Sundays Sprint Cup Series race at Martinsville Speedway. Edwards remains in contention for the title even though he is a lame duck with his Roush Fenway Racing team. GOODYS HEADACHE RELIEF SHOT 500WHO: NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, first race of Chases third segment; eight drivers remain in contention WHEN: Sunday, 1:30 p.m. TV: ESPN WHERE: Martinsville Speedway, Martinsville, Va. who was caught stealing second by catcher Salvador Perez, followed by Brandon Belts single to center. Guthrie retired his next 10 batters in order and combined with Hudson to get out 20 in a row, the longest Series streak since the Yankees Don Larsen and the Brooklyn Dodgers Sal Maglie retired the rst 23 batters during Larsens perfect game in 1956, according to STATS. At 39 years, 102 days, Hudson became the second-oldest pitcher to make his World Series debut as a starter behind Philadelphias Jamie Moyer. Moyer was 45 years, 342 when he started the third game against Tampa Bay in 2008. He allowed three runs and four hits in 5 2-3 innings. On a sun-splashed late afternoon in Northern California, the Fall Classic returned to AT&T Park, where the Giants had won six straight Series games dating to 2002. The ballpark, alongside San Francisco Bay, has a unique atmosphere: The Grateful Deads Sugar Magnolia and Uncle Johns Band played on the sound system during batting practice, and public address announcer Renel Brooks-Moon stirred up the crowd with an excited voice. Many fans wore orange including a man in an orange suit behind home plate and thousands wore orange towels. With the shift to the NL ballpark, the Royals moved Cain from center eld to right to boost defense in one of AT&T Parks trickiest positions. Usual right elder Nori Aoki was not in the starting lineup, and Jarrod Dyson was in center and hit eighth in his rst start since Sept. 20. Cain made a pair of nice plays early, sliding to grab Poseys liner to end the rst and reaching down for a running grab on Travis Ishikawas twisting drive with a runner on to end the second. Gordon, who batted sixth in Kansas City, moved up to No. 2 hole as the Royals lost their designated hitter, Billy Butler. And with the loss of the DH, San Franciscos Michael Morse was out. Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, who died June 16 of oral cancer, was honored before the game. His family stood on the ineld with MLB Chief Operating Ofcer Rob Manfred as a tribute was played on the center-eld video board that included Gwynn highlights and interviews. The ceremonial rst pitch was thrown out by Frank Burke, the fan who caught Ishikawas pennant-winning home run last week and gave the ball to the Giants outelder.ROYALSFROM 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 25, 2014 JOE MADDON CHRONOLOGYNov. 15, 2005 Rays hire Maddon, who was bench coach with Anaheim April 3, 2006 Baltimore defeats Tampa Bay 9-6 at Camden Yards in Maddons first game. Sept. 8, 2007 The Rays pick up a two-year option that keeps Maddon under contract through 2009. Sept. 27, 2008 Rays win first AL East title, become the second team in history (1991 Braves), to go to the playoffs after having the worst record in the majors previous season. Oct. 19, 2008 Rays win AL pennant, advance to franchises first World Series Nov. 12, 2008 Maddon named AL Manager of the Year May 25, 2009 Rays sign Maddon to three -year extension through 2012 Nov. 16, 2011 Maddon wins second AL Manager of the Year award; received 26 of 28 votes. Feb. 12, 2012 Rays sign Maddon to three -year extension through 2015, worth approximately $6 million. Sept. 28:, 2014 In Maddons last game as manager, Tampa Bay loses 7-2 in Cleveland, finishing 77-85. Maddon finishes his tenure 754-705. Oct. 1, 2006 Maddon closes his first year as manager with a league-worst record of 61-101. Sept. 30, 2006 Maddon and Tampa Bay again finish with the major leagues worst record, at 66-96. Sept. 28, 2011 Trailing the New York Yankees 7-0 in the eighth inning of Game 162, the Rays (91-71) win in 12, earning wild card. July 14, 2009 Led the AL to a 4-3 win in the 80th All-Star Game at St. Louis on July 14, 2009 Oct. 4, 2009 Maddon and the Rays miss playoffs, finishing third in the AL East: 84. Oct. 3, 2010 Rays win AL East for the second time in three seasons with an AL-best 96-66 record, lose to Texas in AL Division Series. Oct. 24, 2014 Maddon opts out of final year of contract. April 16, 2012 Maddon wins his 500th career game as Rays manager, defeating Boston 1-0 at Fenway Park. Sept. 30, 2013 After finishing with 91-71 records, Rays beat Texas to earn wild card. Go on to lose to Boston in ALDS. BY JOSH VITALE AND SUN SPORTS STAFF THE JOB MARKET: MINNESOTA AND TAMPA BAY ARE THE ONLY TEAMS WITHOUT A MANAGER ST. PETERSBURGIt feels like a punch to the gut: Joe Maddon is leaving Tampa Bay. Its still hard to believe. When you think of the Rays, you think of Maddon. Behind those smart-guy glasses, Maddon waxes poetic about the game and life and music, using a vocabulary that you rarely hear coming from someone wearing a cap and holding a fungo. He drinks wine and listens to Springsteen and drives classic cars and sleeps in RVs in the spring training parking lot. He lives in a swank house on Bayshore in Tampa and rides a tricked-out bike and quotes Confucius more than he does Casey Stengel. He is so big that he has made up his own holiday: Thanksmas, which serves the needy. Maddon is about as cool as cool gets. He made the Rays popular locally and relevant nationally. He might have been the best skipper in the game, and the best part? He was our skipper. So, yeah, I get it. This stinks. Were going to miss him. But Im not all that sure that the team itself the actual Rays on the eld will. You might feel like ripping the clapper out of your cowbell, but keep telling yourself this: Maddon was just the manager. Just the manager. Over the past nine years, Maddon hasnt swung a bat, thrown a pitch or stolen a base. He made the lineups and called for pitching changes and ordered bunts although not as many as most of you would have liked. But a managers impact on a game isnt as great as in football or basketball. What does a manager do? Mostly, he sets the tone for the team, gives it a personality. The good ones deftly deal with the collection of massive egos in the clubhouse. No question, thats where Maddon excelled. He had a way of making everyone on the roster content with his role and contributions. He had a knack for making players feel wanted and putting them in the best positions to succeed. His laid-back personality helped an overachieving franchise weather the bad spells of a long season while governing the good times. When it comes to managing, Maddon does it as well as anyone. But as crafty as he is, all of Maddons powers and ingenuity couldnt get the Rays above fourth place this season. As much as he prodded and pulled, Maddons magic got the Rays to one World Series. This isnt meant to rip Maddon now that hes leaving town. If Im starting a team, I want him to manage. There are 20-some teams out there right now that are having front-ofce conversations about whether to dump their manager in order to hire Maddon. There are good managers and bad managers. Maddon is a good one. Arguably the best. But teams dont win solely because they have a good manager and they dont lose solely because they have a bad one. Its about the players. The Giants won the World Series in 2010 and 2012 and are vying for another. They nished 10 games under .500 last year. Bruce Bochy was the manager all along. What, he was a bad manager last year but a good one this year? Why do you suppose Joe Torre won four World Series with the Yankees and none with the other four teams he managed? No doubt, it will be strange seeing someone else on the top step of that dugout, but remember, this wasnt the Rays choice. Maddon was the one who wanted out. If he doesnt want to be here, why would you want him to stay? Dont you want a manager who is excited and happy and committed to being here? That was no longer Maddon, and the real question is why doesnt he want to be here? Is it because he thinks the Rays future is bleak? Is it because his old boss, Andrew Friedman, left? Is it because he wants more money? Is it because he is tired of looking up in the stands of an antiquated ballpark and seeing 11,000 fans? Is it because he thinks he can never win a championship in a small market? Maybe its some or all of the above. But Maddons depar ture doesnt automatically spell or predict doom for the Rays. Whatever Maddons motives, there are still plenty of reasons to be optimistic about the Rays future. The organization is loaded with young talent, particularly on the mound. A lot of teams would love to build around Evan Longoria and Wil Myers. Its not as if Friedman and Maddon are the only ones capable of producing a winning team on a shoestring budget. There are other smart people out there. Who around here ever heard of Joe Maddon before he became the Rays manager? Now we get to see what the new head of baseball operations, Matt Silverman, is made of. Maddon was really Friedmans hire. This will be Silvermans hire. Maddon was going to leave eventually. Its a shame it had to happen Friday. We already miss him. But life goes on. Baseball goes on. The Rays will go on. They will have a new manager next season. Will he be a good manager? That all depends on Longoria, Myers and the pitching staff. The manager can only do so much. After all, hes just the manager.A body blow; no knockout punchBy TOM JONESTAMPA BAY TIMES JOE MADDON: Commentary SUN FILE PHOTO BY TOM ONEILLJoe Maddon addresses pitchers and catchers before the rst workout of the spring at Charlotte Sports Park in February, his last spring training in Port Charlotte as Tampa Bays manager. employment status with the team gave Maddon the ability to opt out of the remaining year on his deal. Im surprised by it, and disappointed, Silverman said on a conference call Friday. I believe that Joe wanted to be the manager of the Rays long-term. That was my intention and Stus intention. We dove headrst into discussions about an extension, but it takes two parties to reach an agreement, and we werent able to reach that agreement. The Rays will look at both internal and exter nal candidates to nd a new manager, a search Silverman said will be deliberate and comprehensive. Two of the internal candidates could be bench coach Dave Martinez, who has been with the Rays since 2008, and eight-year Triple-A Durham manager Charlie Montoyo, who is the Bulls all-time winningest manager. Silverman said there is no timetable to complete the search. It will take us as long as we need to get the right guy, Silverman said. There are no shortcuts here. Its been nine years since we looked to nd a new manager, so well dust off out old notes, make some revisions to our thinking and dive into the process. Maddon, who led the Rays to a 754-705 record, four playoff appearances and a World Series in his nine years, told Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times that leaving the Rays was gut-wrenching. Maddon also said he would like to manage in 2015. The obvious landing spot would seem to be the Los Angeles Dodgers, but Friedman issued a statement Friday saying Nothing has changed on our end. Don Mattingly will be our manager next season and hopefully for a long time to come. Early reports indicate the Chicago Cubs could be the favorites to land Maddon. Silverman said he didnt know if Maddon had offers in place from any other teams prior to opting out. I can only tell you what I know and what Joe and I spoke about, which is that it was his desire to be a long-term Ray, Silverman said. I shared that desire and worked hard to make it a reality, and it didnt happen. When the Rays held their end-of-season press conference in September, it was Friedman and Maddon sitting in front of the gathered reporters. When spring training opens in February, that press conference will star Silverman and a manager to be named later. Im very optimistic about our future, Silverman said. Our best days are ahead of us, both on the eld and off the eld, and Im condent that well look back upon these weeks and recognize that our organization has grown stronger in the face of this adversity.MADDONFROM PAGE 1SUN FILE PHOTO BY TOM ONEILLJoe Maddon, left, talks with the media during his annual pre-camp news conference at Charlotte Sports Park in February.

Marc Topkin Tampa Bay Times SUN FILE PHOTO BY KATHERINE GODINA Joe Maddon jokes around before a spring training workout in February. POSSIBLE DESTINATIONSOnly one other team (Minnesota) has a managerial vacancy, but it is likely the seats under a number of managers warmed a little on Friday. Some of the topics of speculation: Los AngelesAndrew Friedman reiterated Friday that he is committed to Don Mattingly as the Dodgers manager. Given the relationship between Friedman and Maddon, he might as well put that endorsement on business cards and just hand them out.Chicago (N.L.)A team full of youth that would seem poised to flourish under a manager like Maddon, just like the Rays did.The eldPhiladelphia, Colorado and Detroit all have young managers, with limited prior experience, who were hired recently. All three drew mixed reviews but offer promise. However, these might be better suitors for Maddon for an inseason or a 2015 offseason hire. Staff Report

The Heat controlled the game after halftime, building the lead to 17 early in the fourth quarter as both teams played their reserves down the stretch. James Harden scored 25 points, and Houston used a big run before halftime to beat the San Antonio 96-87. Harden struggled in the first half, going 2 for 9 from the field for five points. But he scored 20 in the third on 7-for-10 shooting, and then rested during the final period. In St. Louis, rookie Zach LaVine scored all six of his points in the final five minutes, helping Minnesota erase a 13-point deficit midway through the fourth quarter and close the preseason with a 113-112 victory against Chicago.

The unions investigation, like a similar probe organized by the NFL, isnt a law enforcement inquiry and the parties involved arent under any legal obligation to comply with requests. The players union has questioned why the NFLs domestic violence training and education program treats all players as perpetrators. In a memo sent to NFL Players Association members on Thursday by Executive Director DeMaurice Smith and obtained by The Associated Press, the union also said the plan doesnt build a positive consensus to warning signs. The NFL said of the perpetrators claim: Nothing could be further from the truth. The presentation expressly recognizes that people in the NFL are often falsely portrayed and that the actions of a few damage the reputations of many.AP PHOTOMiami guard Norris Cole drives past Memphis guard Nick Calathes in the rst half of Fridays preseason game in Memphis, Tenn.

Page 6 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Saturday, October 25, 2014 THE COUCH POTATOS PICKS COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Week 9 at a glanceMICHIGAN 34 AT NO. 8 MICHIGAN STATE 61 3:30 p.m., ABC Michigan should send a thank-you note to the Big Ten schedule maker who put the Wolverines in East Lansing for a second straight year. No one in Ann Arbor needs to see Michigan suffer another ugly loss at home. Michigans goal is to net one rushing yard, which would be a 49-yard improvement over last seasons game in which the Wolverines were held to minus-48. NO. 1 MISSISSIPPI STATE 60 AT KENTUCKY 52 3:30 p.m., CBS Mississippi State plays as No. 1 for the first time after getting a bye week to bask in the glory of its win against Auburn. Quarterback Dak Prescott has emerged from nowhere, a.k.a Starkville, to become a leading candidate to win the Heisman. Prescott has completed 61.5 percent of his passes and 93.7 percent of the class work he missed after his teams last Southeastern Conference trip to LSU. NO. 3 MISSISSIPPI 70 AT NO. 24 LSU 62 7:15 p.m., ESPN Youll know Ole Miss is for real if it wins this game against the much-improved Tigers. LSU had no luck beating anyone in the SEC West so it crossed over to the weaker side to score wins against Florida and Kentucky. Mississippis top-ranked defense will be the toughest LSUs offense has seen since facing its own defense at Thursdays practice. NO. 13 OHIO STATE AT PENN STATE 8 p.m., ABC This matchup does not bode well for Penn State, which has dropped two games after a 4-0 start and lost last seasons game in Columbus, 63-14 the most lopsided defeat in Penn State history. Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett has 17 touchdown passes, with one interception, in his last four games. By Chris Dufresne, Los Angeles Times TEMPLE (4-2, 2-1 AAC) at CENTRAL FLORIDA (4-2, 2-0) 5 p.m., Bright House Networks Stadium, Orlando TV: CBS Sports Network RADIO: 740 AM LINE: UCF by 7 SERIES: UCF leads 1-0 STORYLINES: Central Florida needed a late-game, one-handed touchdown grab by J.J. Worton to produce a 3-point victory last season. Instead of heroics, UCF wants consistency and ball security after a turnover-laden win against Tulane last week. Temple has the American Athletic Conferences stingiest defense, giving up an average of 17.2 points per game. The Owls also rank in the top half of league in scoring offense: 33.5 points per game. A big reason for Temples defensive success has been its ability to create turnovers. Temple is plus-4 in turnover margin, led by Tavon Young who has three interceptions. UCFs defense allowing opponents 20 points per game this season has saved UCF on more than one occasion this season. But coach George OLeary said he is looking for overall improved production from an offense producing an average of 291 yards and 23.8 points per game. By comparison, the Knights averaged 441.5 yards and 34.6 points last year. The Knights offensive line will play the rest of the year down a man: right guard Colby Watson (back surgery).

While several incumbent power brokers such as Oklahoma, Southern California and Clemson have been sinking in the polls, upstarts such as Mississippi State and Mississippi are riding a groundswell of support. Some things to watch this week:1BAYOU NIGHTMARE LSU is used to spoiling great seasons for other teams. The Tigers (5-2) won their last national championship after losing twice in the 2007 season. Since then, theyve knocked off at least one top-10 team every year in the second half of the season. Today, No. 24 LSU plays host to No. 3 Mississippi. There is no tougher place to play in the land than under the lights at Tiger Stadium, with 100,000 people chanting, Tiger Bait! Its also homecoming and LSU is an underdog. If Ole Miss survives that cauldron of fire, itll be a win to remember.2LITTLE BROTHERS GROW UP It was back in 2007 when Michigan running back Mike Hart, after his fourth win in as many tries against rival Michigan State, referred to the Spartans as the Wolverines little brothers. Since that belittling remark, the Spartans have won five of six meet ings. Today, they are heavily favored to make it six of seven. Michigan has fallen on hard times, with crowds at The Big House dwindling and coach Brady Hoke taking fire from all directions. Meanwhile, No. 8 Michigan State, the defending Big Ten champ, is riding high as it rolls out the green carpet for its estranged older sibling.3ALL FOR NAUGHT The ranks of the winless might just get smaller this week. Some teams that have yet to taste victory are playing teams which are also struggling. Rhode Island (0-7) plays host to Maine (2-5); SMU (0-6) entertains Memphis (3-3); Nicholls State (0-8) is at Houston Baptist (1-6); and Weber State (0-7) plays at home against Portland State (2-5). Other games involving teams looking for that first elusive W include Cornell (0-5) at Brown (2-3); Columbia (0-5) hosting Dartmouth (4-1); and Savannah State (0-7) at North Carolina Central (3-4).4OVERLOOKED The unbeaten team that almost no one knows is Marshall. The Thundering Herd are 7-0 and have scored at least 42 points in every game while winning by a minimum of 15 points. The school in Huntington, West Virginia, has a stellar quarterback in Rakeem Cato. All he has done is throw at least one touchdown pass in 39 consecutive games, snapping the NCAA record of 38 set from 2009-11 by some guy you might have heard of Seattles Super Bowl-winning signal-caller Russell Wilson. But its highly unlikely the Thundering Herd or their star quarterback will grab many eyeballs in the final weeks of the season. After todays game at home against Florida Atlantic, they play Southern Miss, Rice, UAB and Western Kentucky. Associated PressQUARTER REPORT CINCINNATI Gunner Kiel threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score before hurting his ribs again, and Munchie Legaux took it from there Friday night, scoring a touchdown of his own while Cincinnati pulled away to a 34-17 victory against South Florida. The Bearcats (4-3, 2-1 American Athletic) took advantage of the Bulls many mistakes and earned their second consecutive lopsided win. They also came away with more worries at quarterback. Kiel has played the last ve games with bruised ribs. He aggravated the injury on a scramble in the closing seconds of the rst half, which nished with the Bearcats up 20-3. The Bulls (3-5, 2-2) switched quarterbacks but couldnt pull off a second straight comeback. They had the biggest comeback in school history a week earlier, rallying from a 27-7 halftime decit to a 38-30 win over Tulsa. Legaux, who overcame a career-threatening knee injury early last season, had an emotional moment early in the fourth quarter. He ran 9 yards on his rebuilt left knee for his rst touchdown since his comeback. Ex-Michigan receiver sentenced: Csonte York, a 20-year-old former Michigan wide receiver, was sentenced to seven days in jail on misdemeanor assault charges involving a punch that left a man with a broken jaw. York pleaded guilty last month to one count of aggravated assault and one count of assault and battery. The punch came just after 2 a.m. July 18 outside of Scorekeepers Bar in Ann Arbor, police said.Bearcats pull away from South FloridaBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS COLLEGE FOOTBALL ROUNDUPAP PHOTOCincinnatis Gunner Kiel is sacked by South Floridas Tashon Whitehurst during Thursdays game.

The Sun /Saturday, October 25, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 7 NORTH FORT MYERS Victor Mellor got a second chance. Because of that, Lemon Bay High School might make the postseason. Mellor went high in the air to knock away a fourth down pass from North Fort Myers quarterback Jacob Duff, sealing the Manta Rays 21-14 victory over the Red Knights on Friday. Mellor hung in the air, knocking down the bomb to Zaqaundre White at the Lemon Bay 35 with 22 seconds left. I feel like I redeemed myself, Mellor said. And I redeemed my teammates. The play made up for what had looked like the tying touchdown pass seconds before. But Mellor missed Joseph Wilkins, missed the ball, missed every thing as the Red Knight receiver sprinted into the end zone. And he stayed down on the ground, wondering how that had happened. I didnt know what to do, Mellor said. Am I going to pick it off? Am I going to strip it? So I just kind of I dont know. And then we get that ag. The play was called back due to an ineligible receiver downeld, giving Mellor and the Mantas another chance. The ag was a common occurrence on a night when North Fort Myers was hit with 13 penalties for 115 yards, often at critical times. The victory kept alive the hope that Lemon Bay could earn a spot in the postseason. The Mantas (5-3, 3-2 in District 5A-14) are tied with Cape Coral and Dunbar with two district losses each. North Fort Myers (3-5, 2-3) saw its chances of a playoff berth end with the loss. Jeremy Snook rushed for 74 of his game-high 111 rushing yards in the second half, as well as his two touchdowns. Trailing 7-6 at halftime, the Mantas opened the second half with a 13-play drive. Sean Connaghan ran up the gut and Snook and Brayden Curry dashed around the tackles, even as North Fort Myers thought it knew what was coming. The only variance to that pattern came on a key fourth-and-6 at the North Fort Myers 22, when Snook rolled out and found Nic Mostyn for a 17-yard gain. Two plays later, Snook willed the ball into the end zone on a 1-yard plunge. That second half, I thought we did a great job of running the ball and sustaining our blocks, Lemon Bay coach D.J. Ogilvie said. And running tough. Snook added another touchdown on the Mantas next possession, breaking away from a mob at the line of scrimmage for a 42-yard score. That gave Lemon Bay a 21-7 lead with 8:17 to play. It wouldnt be easy for the Mantas, who led late in losses to Port Charlotte and Island Coast. North Fort Myers answered quickly, needing just ve plays to answer back, capped with Whites 27-yard touchdown pass from Duff. Duff completing 11 of 16 passes for 214 yards. He also rushed for 42 yards and a touchdown.Contact Rob Shore at 941-206-1174 or shore@sun-herald.comLEMON BAY 21, NORTH FORT MYERS 14Lemon Bay 6 0 8 7 21 N.

Just before halftime, the Tarpons longest offensive play of the day came on a 41yard touchdown pass. When its press coverage, we already know were going deep down the eld, Laurent said. Laurent nished with seven catches for 152 yards. His three touchdowns are his most in a game this season, but he said its still one short of the school single-game record that he has his sights set on. He nearly scored the fourth in the nal quarter, but was taken down at the 2-yard line. Elijah Mack punched it in for his second touchdown run of the game, his nal of 22 carries in a season-best 191-yard performance. Trystan Beasley also scored two touchdowns of 21 and 35 yards, and DVonte Price added a 25-yard touchdown run of his own. It feels great to see our offense click, weve kind of been waiting for it to hit on all cylinders, Waldrop said. We havent had a problem moving the ball all year, weve had a problem scoring touchdowns once we get in the red zone. We always seemed to nd a way to shoot ourselves in the foot, but we put it in there tonight. Charlotte (4-3) now prepares for a must-win game against rival Port Charlotte (6-2), which had the week off. The winner of that game earns a playoff spot as the District 7A-11 runner-up, and the losers season will end early. I feel like we got it, Mack said.

Braden River came in with a great plan. Theyre an undefeated team. I think they executed what they wanted to do. With quarterbacks Christian VanDerVeer and Mike Innello out due to injury, the Bobcats turned to wide receiver Teddy Deas under center despite him having three days of practice at the position. The senior closed the game with ve consecutive completions, the last of which found wide receiver Stantley Thomas for an 11-yard touchdown with two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. He nished 7 of 18 for 102 yards, two interceptions and a fumble lost. Deas carried eight times for 17 yards and a 10-yard score, accounting for both of the Bobcats touchdowns. Teddy stepped up and played for us, and were glad for that, said Detwiler, who hopes to get one of his two injured quarterbacks back for the Bobcats Nov. 7 game at Hardee. Kept us in the game as far as I could see. But then you could see the mesh points, like the handoffs, and those are the mistakes that are going to happen. After losing a fumble on the goal line on its rst drive, Braden River scored on six of its next seven possessions. Running backs Raymond Thomas, Jaylin Austin and Carlos Crawford scored on touchdown runs of 31, 3 and 2 yards, and quar terback Jacob Huesman found wide receivers Erik Ross and Justin Ross for touchdowns of 28 and 59 yards, respectively. Defensive back Davion Banks capped the scoring barrage with an 88-yard kickoff return touchdown to open the second half. Huesman nished 5 of 6 passing for 145 yards and two touchdowns, and the team totaled 178 yards on 28 carries. We knew they could be explosive, Detwiler said. And I thought, for the most part, we played a pretty good rst half. Third quarter has been our nemesis. Mistakes, injuries and the third quarter. And that seems like a lot to clean up, but its really not. Thats our focus point.BRADEN RIVER 42, NORTH PORT 14Braden River 14 21 7 0 42 North Port 0 7 0 7 14 First quarter BR Raymond Thomas 31 run (Kyle Thoma kick) 2:00 BR Erik Ross 28 pass from Jacob Huesman (Kyle Thoma kick) 1:48 Second quarter BR Justin Ross 59 pass from Jacom Hues man (Kyle Thoma kick) 11:50 NP Teddy Deas 10 run (Michael Mag napera kick) 5:18 BR Jaylin Austin 3 run (Kyle Thoma kick) 3:57 BR Carlos Crawford 2 run (Kyle Thoma kick) 2:22 Third quarter BR Davion Banks 88 kicko return (Kyle Thoma kick) 11:45 Fourth quarter NP Stantley 11 pass from Teddy Deas (Mi chael Magnapera kick) 2:00BOBCATSFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY JOHN KERSTENCharlotte High School quarterback Brennan Simms turns to hand the ball o during the rst quarter against Ida Baker on Friday night in Punta Gorda.

The Sun /Saturday, October 25, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net Page 3 Whether you are a contestant in our Biggest Loser Weight Loss Contest, or just trying to lose some pounds, your ultimate goal should be to focus on lifelong weight control. Exercise is essential to maintaining lifelong weight control and good health. When exercise accompanies dietary changes, lean body mass will be preserved and the weight loss will be maintained after achieving your individual weight goal. I see too many people who are inconsistent in their lifestyle in regards to their weight. By that, I mean theyll join a weight loss contest and then go back to their old inactive, poor-diet lifestyle, thus increasing their weight. After a few months of sedentary life and poor eating habits, they will embark on another weight loss program. This is very unhealthy. Keeping an exercise routine helps prevent weight gain and helps maintain the weight loss. The bottom line is this; the combination of dietary changes, exercise and the accompanying behavior modications will help maintain your weight loss and a healthy lifestyle. Another benet of regular exercise and a healthy diet is better balance. Balance has been dened by Drs. Irrgang, Whitney and Cox as, the ability to maintain a position without moving for a certain period of time, and can also be dened as a state of bodily equilibrium. Activities of daily living, neurological pathways and muscles need to work together, especially as we grow older. The more you are physically fit, the easier it is to achieve basic balance activities. These attributes can be attained through exercise and balance specific training. Exercising regularly with specific balance exercises included in your weekly routine. There also are exercise programs that can greatly enhance balance such as Fusion One Balance improvement and fall prevention classes, Yoga and Tai Chi. Zumba combines music with dance-type exercise. All of the these exercise and health programs are offered by the Learning Place at the Cultural Center.

Page 4 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Saturday, October 25, 2014 WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. When a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, medical protocols have comprised one, two or all three of the following components: surgery (lumpectomy or mastectomy); chemotherapy; radiation. Dr. Tan Ince, an associate professor of pathology and researcher at the Interdisciplinary Stem Cell Institute at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, is hard at work to change that -which could give women another treatment option: personalized multi-hormone combinations. When hormone therapy is included in current breast cancer treatment protocols, only estrogen is involved. According to Ince, around 75 percent of breast cancer patients have an estrogen-positive form of the disease -and thus are prescribed medication to lower their estrogen in order to decrease likelihood of recurrence. Weve looked at the role two additional hormones -vitamin D and androgen -play in the development of breast cancer, Ince says. The ndings could eventually prove transformative -but lets backtrack for a moment. Importance of cell of origin Also a member of the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, Ince has spent the past 15 years researching the role of non-genetic factors in the development of cancer. This research will help us develop more cell-targeted therapies for breast cancer, Ince explains. Generally speaking, breast tissue is composed of two types of cells: luminal cells that line the inside of the breast ducts; and myoepithelial cells that line the outside of the ducts. However, Ince and his colleagues have delved more deeply. In a peer-reviewed paper published earlier this year, Inces research identied at least 11 distinct breast cell subtypes. Whats more, the research deter mined that each of these subtypes have hormone receptors that all behave uniquely -and have the potential to respond to estrogen, vitamin D and androgen (or to just one or two of these hormones). This was the rst time any breast-cancer research had been done on all three hormones simultaneously, Ince says. Option to chemotherapy So, how does this potentially affect breast cancer treatment? This more-detailed pathology of the breast cancer cell can give oncologists more options when treating patients -and make the treatment more effective, Ince says. For instance, if a lumpectomy patient is set to undergo post-operative preventive chemotherapy, the treatment, says Ince, may be enhanced by incorporating vitamin D and/or androgen hormone therapy, depending on the cellular pathology. And with the additional multi-hor mone treatment, Ince says, The preventive chemo dosages, and their side effects, can be signicantly lowered -and in some cases even eliminated. Thats right -Ince is so encour aged by his early ndings that he envisions some breast cancer patients being able to use multi-hor mone therapy in lieu of preventive chemotherapy. Likewise, for breast cancer patients who are prescribed estrogen-lower ing medication, Ince says that their dosages (and corresponding side effects) potentially can be decreased with the vitamin D/androgen combination (again, provided that the pathology warrants it). Ince says that the large-scale clinical testing required to make his potential protocols FDA-approved Miami doctor working on new breast cancer treatmentBy STEVE DORFMANCOX NEWSPAPERS Pink-clad people will be parading on both sides of Tampa Bay today as the American Cancer Societys rst round of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks hits the streets. Making Strides is an awareness and fundraising event, but the walks also offer a great opportunity to join breast cancer survivors and supporters for exercise, something most experts say is an essential part of treatment and recovery. And it also appears to play an important role in cancer prevention. A French study published this summer in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention found a link between exercise and decreased risk for breast cancer in postmenopausal women. That adds to the already large body of evidence extolling the benets of exercise for all manner of health conditions, from warding off heart disease and diabetes to relieving depression, stress and digestive disorders. Most women know that theyre supposed to exercise at least 30 minutes a day, at least four days a week. But if you still havent been motivated, these new ndings could launch you off the couch. The Tampa Bay Times spoke with New Port Richey radiation oncologist Lawrence Hochman, president of Florida Cancer Afliates and a volunteer spokesman with the American Cancer Society, to learn more about the role of exercise in breast cancer prevention, treatment and recovery. Was the news in the French study surprising? No, but it supports what we have already been recommending about exercise and points out the impor tance of not stopping exercise as you get older. (The study found that when exercise stopped, so did its protective benets.) Keeping yourself in good physical shape always makes a differ ence when it comes to overall good health. In this particular study women who exercised regularly, at least four hours a week, were 10 percent less likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer. Some might say that doesnt sound like a big reduction. Oh, but it is a lot when youre talking about the number of women diagnosed with breast cancer each year. In the U.S., 232,000 women found out they had invasive breast cancer last year. Ten percent of them is a lot of women. In the study of 59,000 French women, more than 2,100 were diagnosed with breast cancer. It would have been 200 or 300 more than that without the exercise. Why does exercise seem to protect against cancer? We arent sure why, we just know it does and it does so in just about every type of cancer. Theres some thought that exercise boosts the immune system or that people who engage in exercise tend to lead healthier lifestyles in general. All that allows your body to respond to and prevent cellular changes that could lead to cancer. We suspect the body, the immune system, prevents lots of things we dont even know about. What do you tell women who are in treatment about exercise? First, that you should check with your doctor, your oncologist, about when you can start or restart physical activity and if theres anything you shouldnt do. Usually walking is recommended right away because increased blood circulation helps improve surgical recovery. Plus exercise just makes you feel better. I also tell them to rest when you need to rest. Be gentle with yourself and work up your strength and endurance. I also suggest that women who are having radiation treatment avoid community swimming pools because they tend to have highly chlorinated water, which can be irritating to the skin. Home pools dont usually have that problem. And, I tell them that exercise helps with the fatigue often caused by radiation. Does the same apply to men who are in cancer treatment? I have the same conversation with men, yes. But its easier to get women to exercise than men. Women are always more anxious to get back in the game and almost always ask right away how soon they can get back to exercising. Any nal thoughts? Remember, it doesnt have to be vigorous, dripping-in-sweat exercise. Just walking a half-hour a day makes a big difference. If you have a treadmill or stationary bike, put it right in front of the TV and youll be surprised how easy it is to get some exercise while you watch your favorite shows.Moving can fight cancer By IRENE MAHERTAMPA BAY TIMES MIAMI | 5 PHOTO PROVIDED feelingfit.com Saving Smiles in Charlotte County Since 1991 50472335 rr STHE McKENZIE CENTERIV Sedation G_irn DiseaseLaser Surgery Cosmetic SurgeryImplants Extractions EmergenciesCall today to schedule a free consultation941-629-3443www.DrWilliamMcKenzie.com3443 Tamiami Trail, Suite D, Located in Professional Gardens

The Sun /Saturday, October 25, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net Page 5 Many women who undergo contralateral prophylactic mastectomy to remove a healthy breast along with a diseased breast do not need to, but might do so for peace of mind. When Sandra Perez, a Pembroke Pines mother of two was diagnosed with cancer in her left breast, she was adamant about following the least invasive form of treatment. I told the doctor, I dont care what you do, but I dont want my breast removed, said the 49-year-old insurance agent. When Sari Sosa, a pharmaceutical rep from Kendall, got the life-changing news about cancer in her right breast, she was completely and utterly in shock. Unlike Perez, however, she decided the best way to attack the tumor was by getting both breasts removed. I didnt want to be in the same place dealing with the same worries a few years down the road, said Sosa, 46. These two divergent reactions are typical of early breast cancer patients. More and more, however, women are choosing contralateral prophylactic mastectomy, or CPM removing the healthy breast along with the diseased breast instead of just removing the tumor and surrounding tissue, known as a lumpectomy. (Lumpectomies involve radiation after the surgery.) Studies show the CPM rate has increased more than vefold since 1998, fueled more by overestimation of potential risk than actual survival rates. The jump has caused concern in the medical community. Its a very personal choice, but I think some of these decisions are being made out of fear rather than current research ndings, said Dr. Mecker G. Moller, a surgical oncologist and professor of surgery at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. There is only a small percentage of high-risk patients who would benet from undergoing prophylactic mastectomies, based on genetic predisposition. But some patients dont want to continue living with the threat. They want peace of mind. Peace of mind is not without a price. A double mastectomy is a potentially riskier procedure than a simple lumpectomy, in which surgeons remove the tumor and surrounding tissue but leave the breast intact. Whats more, choosing to remove both breasts to treat cancer affecting only one side does not improve survival rates for most women. A Stanford University study of almost 200,000 California women who were diagnosed with unilateral breast cancer found that the 10-year survival rates were almost identical about 82 percent for those women with double mastectomies, compared with those who had chosen the breast-saving surgery to remove the tumor. It was the rst-ever study, published last month in the Journal of the American Medical Association, to compare breast cancer surgeries. In the study, based on data from 1998 to 2011, a little over half the women had a lumpectomy. The number with double mastectomies, however, increased notably over time, with the most signicant rise occurring in women younger than 40, a group where the more invasive surgery jumped from 4 percent to 33 percent during this period. Younger women might choose the more aggressive treatment because they have longer to live and want to hedge their bets, explained Dr. Carmen Calfa, a breast oncologist at Memorial Breast Cancer Center in Broward. They want to make sure theyre doing everything. Peace of mind is a hard thing to quantify. Overall, white women with private insurance and those who received care at a National Cancer Institutedesignated center were most likely to seek a double mastectomy, the study found. By contrast, women of racial and ethnic minorities, as well as those with public insurance or Medicaid, were more often to favor unilateral mastectomies. The removal of one breast was associated with a higher risk of death in the study, but researchers believe that could be due to the size of the tumor, the stage of the disease and other unrelated socioeconomic risk factors that might have delayed diagnosis and treatment. There are a few cases in which bilateral mastectomies are recommended, of course when there is cancer in both breasts, when there are large tumors, a genetic mutation or inammatory cancer. Some women, like actress Angelina Jolie, undergo a prophylactic double mastectomy as a preventive measure. Jolie was a carrier of BRCA1, a gene that increases the chances of contracting breast and ovarian cancer. Her doctor said she had an 87 percent chance of developing breast cancer and her mother died of the disease at 56, according to news reports. But very few women fall into that high-risk category. In cases where cancer is found only in one breast, the National Comprehensive Cancer Network discourages removing the healthy breast, recommending that it be considered on a case by case basis only for high risk women. will take a few years and an enormous amount of money. The funding for Inces latest groundbreaking research was provided by the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (bcrfcure.org) and the Play for Pink (playforpink. org) initiative -two entities that he urges everyone to support. If we had the money, he says, we could start the clinical trials tomorrow.

Page 6 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Saturday, October 25, 2014 Your children will have plenty of candy on Halloween. That much is a given. But what do you do if you want them to eat more nourishing food as well? How do you offer children a healthy treat without them thinking it is a trick? The answer is to make healthful food fun. Halloween is the most wickedly enjoyable holiday of the year, anyway, so kids will devour good-for-you snacks when they are presented in the spirit of the day. With a bit of creativity, an assortment of vegetables can be turned into a spooky and vitamin-rich skeleton of fun. A few chocolate chips turn a banana into a delicious ghost. String cheese and a pretzel stick make a delightful witchs broom. Put the right shape of celery on top of a peeled clem entine, and presto! you have juicy pumpkins that are high in Vitamin C. The possibilities are endless. Just use your imagination and some edible craftiness to create haunting snacks your little ghosts and goblins will crave. They may even forget all about the candy. TANGERINE PUMPKINS AND BANANA GHOSTS Yield: 8 servings 4 bananas 8 regular-sized chocolate chips, and 16 mini chocolate chips 8 clementines or mandarin oranges 1 rib celery 1.

The Sun /Saturday, October 25, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net Page 7 If you want to have the longest, healthiest life possible, you should never have lit that rst cigarette. Never tasted that rst cheese fry. Never stepped foot inside a fastfood restaurant or driven somewhere you could have walked. Never turned up your nose at vegetables or let yourself get those nasty sunburns. If you did, take heart. Theres still plenty you can do to add years to your life. Most things I would say are common-sense things, things you were taught in rst grade, says Dr. David Johnson, chair of the department of internal medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. You dont have to go to medical school to gure out things are bad for you like smoking, being a sloth. So listen up. These 10 ways are easy and have more signicance than most of us realize. Truth to tell, Johnson says, Collectively, even if they dont let you live longer, they allow you to live more healthily in a much more psychologically satisfy ing life. 1. Floss Its not just to remove spinach remnants from dinner. Flossing removes plaque, the bacterial lm that forms along your gum line. Get rid of bacteria, and you lessen your chances of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimers disease and some forms of cancer, says Dr. Larry Korenman of Loveable Smiles in Richardson. Oral bacteria can create proteins that are found in artery walls and in the bloodstream, he says, causing blood to clot more easily. Infection in the mouth can cause its own small blood clots, which can enter the bloodstream. Years added? More than six if you oss daily (which only 5 percent to 10 percent of Americans do), writes Dr. Michael Roizen in RealAge. 2. Get a colonoscopy Its a great test, says Radhika Vayani, an internal medicine doctor of osteopathy at the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth. The 24-hour prep is the worst. You basically drink nasty stuff, and you have diarrhea. But you wont feel the procedure. If they see a polyp, they get rid of it right then and there. That could save you from having colon cancer in ve years. Years added? Lots. Nine out of 10 people whose colon cancer is discovered early will still be alive in 10 years, according to the American Cancer Society. Many will live a normal lifespan. 3. Stop eating before youre full Most Americans eat and eat till were so full were about to be sick, says Vayani. But it takes the body 15 to 20 minutes to say, Youre full. Years added? Being 100 pounds overweight can subtract a decade from your life, according to an Oxford University study. So it stands to reason that maintaining a healthy weight and thus reducing your risk for diabetes, heart disease and various other unpleasantries would add at least some precious time to your life. 4. Use sunscreen In a Centers for Disease Control study, only 32 percent of adults reported usually applying sunscreen. Yet this year in the U.S., 3.5 million people will get skin cancer and 76,000 more will develop melanoma, says the American Cancer Society. Every hour, someone will die from that deadliest form. Years added? Possibly 20. The CDC study reported that someone who died of melanoma between 2000 and 2006 died two decades prematurely. Although the sun doesnt cause all melanomas, it does cause most. So slather on more sunscreen than you think you need to, more often than you think necessary. 5. Stop smoking Yes, despite years and years of evidence proving all the nasty stuff it causes, tons of people smoke, Vayani says. Years added? If you quit at age 30, you can increase your life by 10 years, she says. Quit at 40? Add nine years. 50? Six years. 60? Three. 6. Sleep Not getting enough has been linked to memory problems, hearing problems, anger, high blood pressure, stroke, depression, vehicle accidents and obesity. A decades-long international study of 1.3 million people found unequivocal evidence of the direct link between lack of sleep and premature death, according to sleepbetter. org. Years added? Hard to say, but if someone died in a car accident caused by sleep deprivation, for instance, thats probably several decades. 7. Move Exercise has been demonstrated over and over to be useful, Johnson says. Truth is, any level is of value. Walking, he says gets you outside, and some outside is good as long as you dont overdo it. The best way to get Vitamin D is sunshine. Years added? At least three years. Thats the number from a study reported in The Lancet for people who exercised even 15 minutes a day. Put another way, a story on WBUR-FM, Bostons public radio station, reported that every minute you exercise adds seven minutes to your life. 8. Eat produce Benets abound. Among them: Eating ve or more servings per day instead of a piddly three or fewer reduces your risk of stroke by 26 percent, according to a study reported in Mens Health. Years added? Webmd.com reports that Seventh-day Adventists, who typically follow a vegetarian diet, outlive those who dont by three to seven years. 9. Cultivate healthy relationships Spending time with family and friends is psychologically helpful, Johnson says, adding that it isnt a cure-all; it wont counteract a McDonalds cheeseburger. Vayani tells patients, If you have people in your life who are negative, who are pulling you down, you have to get rid of that relationship. It affects you more than you realize. Years added? Nothing specic, but studies have shown that people with more friends and people in healthy relationships live longer, she says. 10. Be grateful We experience great things all day long that we fail to acknowledge, Johnson says. I dont want to sound new wave-y, but our health is more than just physical health. I see dozens of people who have illnesses that would lay you or me low, but they seem totally happy. How in the Sam Hill can that be? Theyve chosen to look at the good instead of the challenges. Years added? Maybe some, maybe none. Even if I dont live a long time, Johnson says, Im happy with what I experience. 10 things you can do right now to live longerBy LESLIE BARKERTHE DALLAS MORNING NEWS PHOTO PROVIDED feelingfit.com 50473144 We have your convenience in mind with 12 locations to better serve you. 18308 Murdock Circle Unit 102 Port Charlotte 9 4 1 6 2 4 2 1 4 1 941-624-2141 www.anklefootfl.comO f f e r i n g .

Page 8 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Saturday, October 25, 2014 I exercise, stay slim and think I am reasonably careful about my diet. Subtract the dark-chocolate habit and minus the Cheetos cravings, I make fairly good choices. So I was shocked to learn that my fasting blood sugars were bordering on high and my numbers were leaning toward becoming prediabetic. How could this be? Prediabetes results from a combination of poor lifestyle choices and hereditary predisposition. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 86 million people, or 1 in 3 adults, in the United States have prediabetes. Mildly elevated blood-sugar levels such as mine should be a knock on the door for lifestyle changes, for more reasons than you may realize. Besides the commonly known diabetes-related heart and vascular complications, there are more reasons to pay attention to your medical providers advice when it comes to elevated blood sugars. As reported in Mays Diabetologia, prediabetes may increase the risk of developing cancer by as much as 15 percent. If your blood sugars continue to escalate and you develop diabetes, your risk for all cancer types increases up to 41 percent compared with nondiabetics, according to a 2008 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association. In addition, a 2011 New England Journal of Medicine article reported that middle-aged men with diabetes died about six years younger than their nondiabetic counterparts. Those researchers found associated increased risk for premature death from both heart and non-heart-related factors, including several cancers. Diabetics were found to have higher risks for cancers of the liver, pancreas, ovaries, colon, lungs, bladder and breasts. In the past, researchers have linked obesity, lowered immunity and inammatory factors as causal reasons for increased cancer risks and cancer mortality in diabetics. More recently, a study from Molecular Cell 2013 found elevated sugars triggered increased activity of a protein, beta-catenin. Accumulation of this protein is a known factor in the development of many cancers. There is good news for prediabetics and diabetics. According to Cancer Prevention Research 2012, a commonly prescribed diabetes medication, Metformin, demonstrated a 31 percent reduction in cancer compared with other blood-sugar-lowering drugs. In 2013, the Cleveland Clinic published research with similar outcomes using another type of diabetes drug, thiazolidinedione. Several study trials are examining the use of Metformin and healthy lifestyle changes as a complement to chemotherapy for many conditions including colorectal, uterine and lung cancer. One of the best ways to decrease your risk of cancer is to live a healthy lifestyle and avoid diabetes and heart disease. The American Cancer Society reports that up to one-third of cancer deaths are related to poor diet and low activity. According to the CDC, without weight loss and regular exercise, 1530 percent of people with prediabetes will become diabetic over the next ve years, and of those who develop diabetes, 1 in 4 will not know they have the disease. My father did not know it; not until he suffered a debilitating stroke was his advanced diabetes diagnosis made clear. Annual blood-sugar testing should be part of a routine ofce medical evaluation. Due to my hereditary diabetes risk, perhaps it is time to rethink my dark-chocolate and Cheetos vices. While it is not necessary to completely eliminate my favorite comfort foods, they should be eaten in moderation and only on special occasions. Now, if I could only get the makers of Cheetos to dip them in dark chocolate I would have one food choice to limit instead of two.Prediabtes a wakeup call to get eating, lifestyle choices on trackBy Dr. JANE SADLERTHE DALLAS MORNING NEWSStand at the edge of the ocean or of a dream, and where youre going can look pretty far away. Ah, to be there already quickly, easily, hardly breaking a sweat in the process. Alas, thats not how most dreams are realized. Instead, its the small steps that get us there. You cannot, after all, lose 100 pounds without losing one; run a marathon without running a mile; heal an injury without moving the smallest of muscles. People have to understand thats how life works, says Danielle Girdano, president of Dne Sculpting & Nutrition. Its not like in the movies where one motivational song later, you hit your goal. It is a journey and takes a lot of steps to get there. Seven years ago, Girdano weighed 396 pounds. Her body fat hovered around 67 percent. She smoked twoand-a-half packs of cigarettes a day. She was 29 years old, and a doctors visit scared her into changing her life. She began walking because, she says, it was all I could do. She now weighs 168 pounds and is a personal trainer who helps other people take their rst and second and maybe come at least close to that 10,000th step every day. People will drink this supplement or take that pill and want change instantaneously, she says. With small steps, theres commitment. When clients come to health coach and certied trainer Julie Gannon with the big goal, she commends them for looking ahead. Then she asks what the rst step might be to reaching it. The key, says Gannon, who recently moved to San Antonio from Dallas, is setting smart goals that are measurable, attainable and realistic. Be consistent with the small steps, she stresses, and youll eventually get there. But people being people, and residents of a quick-x society at that, theyre not always content with such a simplistic approach. What about every thing else?, they ask Gannon. What do they need to start or stop or eliminate or put on hold? Its important to have success when you rst start and then continue to build, she says. Its motivating: Hey, I did that and I can do it again. If you try to tackle the mountain all at once, you wont be successful. But tackling the rst thing and getting over the hurdle makes the second a little easier. When a group of women told Gannon of their four-month goal of walking a 5K, for instance, she asked, What do we need to get there? They began walking for 10 minutes a day, then incorporating more movement into their days. Gannon also set another goal, albeit a difcult one: eliminating sugar. Its a big rst step, but only one step at a time, she says. If you can cut that out, it reduces your craving for starchy things and sugary things. After a few weeks working toward that goal, she had them add another: eating a vegetable with every meal. Six months into their journey and with the 5K behind them, the women look back and there are things they do now they never could have imagined. One week, one came in and announced, On Saturday, I had cake, and it was way too sweet. Theyre laughing at themselves, Gannon says. I cant believe I thought something was too sweet. I used to be made of sugar! What makes small steps so power ful, Girdano says, is that nobody can take them for you. You have to take the stairs and climb every step. What they do for you is give you those little condence nudges. Small steps are especially imperative because they allow the body to heal, which physical therapists continually stress to their patients. I was just explaining to a pilot who had rotator-cuff surgery about the baby steps that begin with barely moving his arms, says Terry Robinson, an athletic trainer and physical therapist. Its easily going to be an 8to 10-month process. Robinson, who owns Grapevine Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine, in suburban Dallas, is also part of the athletic training staff for USA Diving. He works not only with divers, but with other athletes, too not necessarily their individual form, but breaking down the movements. When youre injured, your muscle tightens, your joint tightens, he says. You regain exibility of the joints and work on strength. In divers, its the normal arm-down position and the sports-specic position. Seventeen muscles attach to the shoulder blade, he says. Four make up the rotator cuff, which primarily functions to stabilize the shoulder joint. One thing we might do in therapy is isolate those small muscles before we can expect the larger to get stronger. Its easy for us to say were going to strengthen the bicep and deltoid, but those are larger muscles. For a diver, small stabilizing muscles help keep the shoulder together, he says, and thus help at that crucial point of impact hitting the water. There are a lot of very specic exercises to train the smaller muscles at the shoulder blade to make the others stronger, he says. If I explain to the athletes real well what the purpose of small, basic exercises are and how they t into the big picture, thats making Part A as important as Part Z. The more experienced an athlete, the more the appreciation for small steps, Robinson says. Athletes at the Olympic level are different from high school or college, he says. Theyve worked for maybe eight years to be at the Games and know those small steps every single piece of food put into their mouth, every training session, every supplement they take all adds up. What makes these small steps especially powerful, Gannon says, is that they can be applied to just about any goal set, any dream contemplated. Suddenly, things dont seem impossible for you anymore, she says. It becomes, Oh, yeah, Ive got this.

She told them my Mantra is let your light shine, no matter what. They asked so many intelligent question, and were just so interested in womens issues, Bertler said.

Girl Scout Troop 208 created Boo-Bees, a decorated bra that will be entered in Bra Dazzle 2. It has ghosts (boo!) on the left, and daisies on the right. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention rst investigated chronic fatigue syndrome in the mid-1980s, when a few hundred people in Nevada suddenly got symptoms much like mine. A couple of doctors documented physiological factors, including abnormal MRI scans and immune problems, and noted that the malady t the prole of myalgic encephalomyelitis, an illness that had cropped up sporadi cally for decades. CDC investigators created a broad denition for the illness, which did not involve MRI scans or ndings about the immune system. The diagnostic criteria included at least six months of fatigue along with other subjective symptoms such as sore throat, swollen lymph nodes and brain fog. They called the illness chronic fatigue syndrome and subsumed myalgic encephalomyelitis within it. (The agency now often calls the illness ME/CFS). In 2005, the CDC broadened the denition further, requiring only low levels of symptoms other than fatigue, and the number of patients who qualied for the diagnosis increased by six to 10 times. Researchers and clinicians specializing in the disease, in the meantime, created a far more precise denition, requiring post-exer tional malaise a severe increase of symptoms after exercise along with abnormalities in neuroendocrine and immune functioning, and in the autonomic nervous system, which controls respiration, blood pressure, digestion and perspiration. But without ofcial endorsement, it has not become universally accepted. Other CDC actions have worsened the muddle. For example, the agency recommends that CFS patients gradually increase exercise, suggesting that this will restore bed-bound patients to daily functioning, though even the most encouraging studies show that to be unrealistic. The CDC also recommends cognitive behavioral therapy (a form of psychotherapy) but almost none of the treatments that enabled me to work part time again. With confusing denitions and weak treatment recommendations, its hardly surprising that most general practitioners recommend no treatments for CFS other than some symptomatic care along with psychotherapy and exercise.

Page 10 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Saturday, October 25, 2014 Exercising three times a week reduces the odds of developing depression by around 16 percent, scientists said on Wednesday and for every extra weekly activity session, the risk drops further. In a study conducted as part of a public health research consortium, the UK-based scientists said the relationship they found between depression and exercise points to ways to simultaneously improve both mental and physical health. Assuming the association is causal, leisure time physical activity has a protective effect against depression, said Snehal Pinto Pereira of University College Londons Institute of Child Health, who led the study. If an adult between their twenties and forties who isnt physically active became active three times per week, they would reduce their risk of depression by approximately 16 percent. Depression is one of the most common forms of mental illness, affecting more than 350 million people worldwide. It is ranked by the World Health Organization as the leading cause of disability globally. Treatment for depression usually involves either medication or psychotherapy, or a combination of both. Yet many patients fail to get better and suffer recurring bouts of illness. Pereiras team followed 11,135 people born in 1958 up until the age of 50, recording their depressive symptoms and levels of physical activity at regular intervals as adults. To assess depression, they looked at responses to the Malaise Inventory, a questionnaire designed to measure psychological distress, at ages 23, 33, 42, and 50. Participants were also asked how often they exercised. The results, published in JAMA Psychiatry, showed that people who increased their weekly activity reported fewer depressive symptoms, but those with more depressive symptoms were less active, particularly at younger ages. Each additional activity session per week reduced odds of depression by 6 percent. The scientists noted that the link between exercise and depressive symptoms was seen across the whole population and not just in those at high risk of clinical depression. The study also found that people who reported more depressive symptoms than others at age 23 tended to also be less physically active, but this link weakened as they grew older. This nding is important for policies designed to get people more active, because it suggests that depressive symptoms could be considered a barrier to activity in young adulthood, Pereira said. Chris Power, a UCL professor of epidemiology and public health who also worked on the study, said it added weight to existing evidence suggesting exercise could be used as a treatment for depression as well as boosting physical health. If everyone was physically active at least three times a week we would expect to see a drop in depression risk, not to mention the benets for physical health, as pointed out by other research, including reduced obesity, heart disease and diabetes risk. Exercising three times a week significantly cuts depression riskBy KATE KELLANDREUTERS PHOTO BY BARBARA PIERCEMustering up the energy to get exercise most days can make a huge dent in depressionWASHINGTON The cost of Medicare has been slowing dramatically in recent years, leading to much head-scratching by health economists and much credit-mongering by politicians. President Barack Obama, for instance, claimed earlier this month that his Affordable Care Act is driving down both Medicare costs and the overall cost of healthcare. Now comes evidence that an entirely different program may deserve more of the credit, at least as far as Medicare is concerned the Medicare prescription drug program, enacted under president George W. Bush. Loren Adler and Adam Rosenberg of the bipartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget make this argument in a post on the web site of the prominent health policy journal, Health Affairs. After examining Medicare cost projections through the years from the Congressional Budget Ofce, the pair determined that the prescription drug program, known as Medicare Part D, has accounted for over 60 percent of the slowdown in Medicare benets since 2011, though the program accounts for barely 10 percent of overall Medicare spending. Through April of this year, the last time the Congressional Budget Ofce (CBO) released detailed estimates of Medicare spending, CBO has lowered its projections of total spending on Medicare benets from 2012 through 2021 by $370 billion, the pair write. The $225 billion of that decline accounted for by Part D represents an astounding 24 percent of Part D spending. Meanwhile, spending on Parts A and B the hospital and general medical insurance is projected to decline by only $145 billion. Other major sources of savings include sharp automatic budget cuts known as the sequester ($75 billion) and increased recoveries of improper payments to providers ($85 billion). The pair note that by starting in 2011 the year after the Affordable Care Act was enacted their analysis excludes the direct impact of various spending reductions in the ACA. However, they write, the analysis would reect ACA savings to the extent that the Medicare reforms have controlled costs better than originally anticipated. As card-carrying budget wonks, Adler and Rosenberg are less concerned about who gets credit for the cost slowdown than what the ndings suggest for future government spending. And the news, alas, is not necessarily good. If projections for Parts A and B were declining, that might suggest that the slowdown in Medicare spending was part of some permanent, fundamental changes in the way hospitals and doctors provide health care. But Part A is down only 8 percent while Part B is actually rising, largely due to lawmakers insistence on reversing scheduled cuts to provider reimbursements. The fact that Part D is responsible for the lions share of the savings, the pair write, is reason to be cautious about its permanence. Lower Part D spending primarily stems from the patent cliff a number of blockbuster brand-name drugs that have lost patent protection, paving the way for cheaper generic competitors and a decrease in the rate of introduction of new brandname drugs. It is unclear whether these trends in the prescription drug market will continue or are temporary phenomenon, the pair write, adding: With the recent rise of specialty drugs, highlighted by the $1,000/pill Hepatitis C treatment Sovaldi, the tide may already be shifting. In a recent analysis of the Part D slowdown, the CBO concluded that it can be almost entirely explained by broader national trends in per-capita drug spending that occurred as a result of the pharmaceutical technological slowdown as well as lower-than-expected enrollment in the prescription drug program. The decrease in Medicare spending growth has already been a remarkable shift, and prolonging the slowdown in Parts A and B would be a tremendously important contribution, the pair write. Unfortunately, though, the outsized role that Part D has played in the Medicare slowdown is bad budget news because it may prove eeting.

The Sun /Saturday, October 25, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net Page 11 If youre going to overindulge and gain weight, at least try to make sure the extra calories come from unsaturated fats, a new study suggests. When lean people pack on even a few extra pounds, heart disease risk factors in the bloodstream change some for the better if the excess food contains unsaturated fats, versus saturated fats, researchers found. Even a moderate weight gain of about three pounds for lean, young people clearly increased markers of heart disease risk factors like insulin resistance as well as signs of impaired vascular function, said senior author Dr. Ulf Riserus of the Unit for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism at Uppsala Science Park in Sweden. But unsaturated fats in the diet improved cholesterol levels despite the extra calories and weight gain, which is surprising, Riserus told Reuters Health by email. For seven weeks, two groups of healthy, relatively lean adults ages 20 to 38 were told to keep to their habitual exercise level and daily diets, adding three to four muffins to their diets each day. The researchers provided the 240-calorie muffins, with half their energy from fats. One group of 19 adults received muffins made with sunflower oil, poly unsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), while the other group of 20 people ate muffins made with palm oil, a saturated fat. The muffins were otherwise identical. After seven weeks, each group had gained between two and three percent of their body weight, about 3.5 pounds (1.5 kilos) each, and waist girth increased by about one percent, but blood pressure did not change significantly. This level of weight gain in the short term is probably not dangerous at all, Riserus said, but if weight accumulates over time, especially abdominal fat, there can be health consequences. Based on blood tests, the sunflower oil group had lower cho lesterol and lipid levels at the end of the study than they had at the beginning of the study. For the palm oil group, cholesterol went up, according to the results in the Journal of the American Heart Association. Both groups showed signs of increased insulin resistance, a diminished ability to process blood sugar that can be a warning sign for diabetes onset. Riserus and his team had previously found that the type of fat in the diet determined how much of the excess calories were stored as abdominal fat and liver fat, he said. If the high-caloric diet was based on unsaturated fats rather than saturated fats, very little fat was stored as liver and abdominal fat, whereas the opposite was true for the diet high in saturated fats, he said. Saturated and unsaturated fats have different molecular effects on the liver, he said. Unsaturated fats signal the liver to take up cholesterol from the blood, he said. We believe our results are very relevant considering that a large part of most populations are in caloric excess and gradually gain weight over time, Riserus said. Although weight gain should be avoided, the results basically tell us that we may benefit from having enough unsaturated fats in our diets, irrespectively of how many calories we eat. The results support the American Heart Association recommendation to replace some saturated fats in the diet, like fatty beef, butter and cheese, with unsaturated fats like vegetable oils and nuts, he said. I do not think people usually plan for weight gain, but, as we know, it just happens quite commonly, said Ursula Schwab, an associate professor of nutrition therapy at the University of Eastern Finland in Kuopio. So, by following the guidelines regarding dietary fat, uninten tional weight gain can be less harmful than in cases when the recommendations on the quality of dietary fat is not followed, Schwab told Reuters Health by email. She was not involved in the new study. All dietary polyunsaturated fats are beneficial, she said, but that is not necessarily the case for supplements. In addition to sunflower oil, rapeseed oil and canola oil are good sources of polyunsaturated fats, Riserus said. Eating certain fats might offset some heart risk from weight gainBy K ATHRYN DOYLE REUTERS MCT PHOTO A man paralyzed from the chest down in a knife attack is walking again after undergoing surgery using cells responsible for the sense of smell, marking an advance in the search for treatments for spinal injuries. Darek Fidyka, 38, received the cells after failing to recover from a stabbing in the back in 2010, according to University College London, whose doctors developed the procedure. The technique involves using olfactory ensheathing cells and placing them in the spinal cord. The study gives hope to the thousands of people each year who suffer a severe spinal cord injury and must live the rest of their lives with permanently damaged body functions. Such injuries typically occur during sports or automobile crashes and there is no approved treatment to repair them. We have now opened the door to a treatment of spinal cord injury that will get patients out of wheelchairs, said Geoff Raisman, chairman of neural regeneration at the UCL Institute of Neurology and leader of the U.K. research team. Our goal now is to develop this first procedure to a point where it can be rolled out as a worldwide general approach. The cells used were discovered by Raisman in 1985 and were shown to work in treating spinal injuries in rats in 1997. They allow nerve cells that give people their sense of smell to grow back when they are damaged. The procedure on Fidyka was per formed by surgeons at Wroclaw University Hospital in Poland. For the treatment, Fidyka underwent brain surgery to remove an olfactory bulb, a structure responsible for the sense of smell. The bulb was placed in a cell culture for two weeks to produce olfactory cells, which were injected into the spinal cord along with four strips of nerve tissue taken from the ankle. The strips formed bridges for the spi nal nerve fibers to grow across, with the aid of the cells. Three months after the surgery, Fidykas left thigh muscle began to grow and after six months he was starting to walk within the rehabilitation center with the help of a physiotherapist and leg braces, according to UCL. His bladder sensation and sexual function have also improved. This technology has been confined to labs, so its promising to see that it may have helped someone recover from a clean cut through the spinal cord, said Jeremy Fairbank, a professor of spine surgery at the University of Oxford who wasnt involved in the research. The next question is what sort of clinical experiments must be done to prove that this works, Fairbank said. I suspect it will take years until there is a practical way of doing this. The research, funded by the UK Stem Cell Foundation and the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation, was published in the Cell Transplantation journal. Further studies in patients are planned by UCL and Wroclaw University Hospital, according to Michael Hanna, director of the UCL Institute of Neurology. Its as if you were born again, the patient, who can now walk using a walker, said in a statement from University College London.

Page 12 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Saturday, October 25, 2014 The longest-running trial of stem cells derived from a human embryo found that the cells caused patients none of the problems scientists feared, such as forming tumors, and reversed partial blindness in about half the eyes receiving transplants, researchers reported on Tuesday. The results, published in The Lancet, could help re-invigorate the controver sial quest to harness stem cells, which have the ability to turn into any of the 200 kinds of human cells, to treat diseases. In an accompanying commentary, Dr. Anthony Atala of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine called the work a major accomplishment. After intense excitement among scientists and the public about the promise of stem cells and ethical debates about destroying human embryos to obtain them, the eld stumbled when a high-prole trial for spinal cord injury was halted by Geron Corp in 2011 and the interest of other companies waned. The small studys main goal was assessing the safety of the transplanted cells. Called retinal pigment epithelial cells, they were created by taking stem cells from a days-old embryo created in a fertility clinic and inducing them to differentiate into the specialized cells. The study provides the rst evidence, in humans with any disease, of the long-term safety and possible biologic activity of cells derived from embryos, said co-author Dr. Robert Lanza, chief scientic ofcer of Advanced Cell Technology, which produced the cells and funded the study. Nine patients with Stargardts disease (which causes macular degeneration in childhood) and nine with dry age-related macular degeneration (a leading cause of adult blindness) received implants of the retinal cells in one eye. The other eye served as a control. Four eyes developed cataracts and two became inamed, probably due to the patients age (median: 77) or the use of immune-supressing transplant drugs. The retinal cells, which help keep the eyes rods and cones alive and functional, survived in all 18 patients, most of whose vision improved. In those with macular degeneration, treated eyes saw a median of 14 additional letters on a standard eye chart a year after receiving the cells, with one patient gaining 19 letters. The untreated eyes got worse, overall. The Stargardts patients had similar results. In real-life terms, patients who couldnt see objects under 12 feet (4 meters) tall can now see normal-size adults. The vision of one 75-year old rancher who was blind in the treated eye (20/400) improved to 20/40, enough to ride horses again, Lanza said. Others became able to use computers, read watches, go to the mall or travel to the airport alone for the rst time in years. While calling the results encour aging, stem cell expert Dusko Ilic of Kings College London, who was not involved in the work, warned that even if the larger clinical trial planned for later this year is also successful, it will take years before the treatment becomes available.

The Sun /Saturday, October 25, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net Page 13 A Mediterranean diet enhanced with extra nuts or more olive oil improved certain heart risk factors among people who had them but did not prevent others from developing them according to a new study from Spain. By the end of the trial, which lasted almost five years, fewer people eating the Mediterranean diet had so-called metabolic syndrome a collection of traits that raise a persons risk of heart disease and diabetes largely because the syndrome disappeared from some who had it at the start. A healthy diet, like the Mediterranean diet, with a moderate-high intake of vegetable fat (in form of virgin olive oil or nuts) is a good healthy option for the prevention of several cardiovascular risk factors and chronic disease, the studys senior author Dr. Jordi Salas-Salvado told Reuters Health by email. Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of risk factors, including a large waistline, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, low levels of HDL (good) cholesterol and high levels of triglycerides. People who have three or more of these symptoms are at heightened risk of developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes. About 25 percent of adults around the world, and one-third of American adults, have metabolic syndrome, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Salas-Salvado, of the Universitat Rovira i Virgili and Hospital Universitari de Sant Joan de Reus, in Reus, Spain, said the foods that make up a Mediterranean diet are likely to help reverse metabolic syndrome and ameliorate several of the syndromes components. In the study, for example, even though no one was dieting to lose weight, consuming extra olive oil was linked to loss of the abdominal fat that had helped to qualify some participants for metabolic syndrome to begin with. It was also linked to lowered blood sugar. Previous research has shown that eating a healthy diet, increasing physical activity and losing weight can help reverse metabolic syndrome, but the authors of the new study wanted to see if just following a Mediterranean-style diet without cutting calories might help. They analyzed data from a larger trial, in which adults age 55 and older with a high risk of heart disease were randomly assigned to one of three diets: a Mediterranean diet supplemented with additional extra-virgin olive oil, a Mediterranean diet supplemented with nuts, or a low-fat diet. A Mediterranean eating style already emphasizes healthy fats like those found in olive oil and nuts, as well as vegetables, legumes and lean protein, especially fish. For the new analysis, the researchers followed 5,801 participants, almost two-thirds of whom (3,707) had metabolic syndrome at the start of the study. Another 2,094 participants developed metabolic syndrome during the study. After about three years, the researchers didnt see any differ ences among the diet groups as far as who developed metabolic syndrome. But, after almost five years they found that participants in the two Mediterranean-diet groups were more likely to have lost some belly fat and to have lower blood sugar levels. As a result, just under 30 percent of those on one of the Mediterranean diets who started the trial with metabolic syndrome no longer met the criteria, the study team reports in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. The higher reversion rate of metabolic syndrome was mainly observed in those individuals allocated to the Mediterranean diet supplemented with extra-virgin olive oil, Salas-Salvado said. Since there were no differences in weight loss or energy expenditure from physical activity among the groups, he added, the benefits can be attributed to differences in the dietary pattern. We can speculate that a Mediterranean diet, particularly one supplemented with extra-virgin olive oil (which has anti-inflammatory properties), could exert positive effects on fat redistribution, Salas-Salvado said. The study authors also note that past research has credited olive oil with lowering high blood sugar and reducing insulin resistance, a difficulty processing blood sugar that often precedes diabetes. Alice Lichtenstein, director of the Cardiovascular Nutrition Laboratory at Tufts University in Boston, called the study findings interesting, but depending on how they are superimposed on the U.S. diet, (they) may or may not be of benefit, she said in an email. Taking the habitual U.S. diet, which in two-thirds of Americans is consumed in excess of energy needs, and adding olive oil or nuts, without taking something out hopefully, refined carbohy drate would not be predicted to have the desired effect, said Lichtenstein, who wasnt involved in the Spanish research. However, she added, dropping total calories, particularly in the form of sugar and things like white bread and white pasta, and making up some of the calories as unsaturated fat would likely have a benefit. Lichtenstein also pointed out that the low fat control diet used in the study contained about 37 percent of energy from fat, which is high relative to the typical U.S. diet that has about 32 percent of energy as fat. Certainly no one is currently recommending low fat diets for anyone, Lichtenstein said. The current recommendation for indi viduals with insulin resistance is that they consume a diet closer to 35 percent of energy as fat.

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 detection techniques.

When the Food & Drug Administration recalls your all natural dietary supplement for containing prescription pharmaceuticals, you may think that ensures a rapid restoration of the misbranded product to its wholesome natural state, right? Wrong, says a new study. Several months after supplements were recalled for being illegally laced with prescription drugs, researchers bought them off the shelves and from the online inventories of supplement retailers and checked whether they continued to contain the illegal substances for which theyd been recalled. In two-thirds of cases, the supplements did. And in more than 1 in 5 cases, the researchers found a second (or more) illegal ingredients in the recalled products. Either the supplement maker had doubled down in the wake of the FDAs recall, adding more illegal ingredients to the product, or the FDA had failed to ag the additional adulteration in the rst place. Those ndings came in a research letter published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association. More than half of adult Americans use nutritional supplements of some sort, mostly vitamin and mineral supple ments. But products that often include herbal and botanical extracts and are marketed as bodybuilding, weight-loss or sexual enhancement aids are a multibillion-dollar business. Unlike drugs, dietary supplements dont have to be proved safe before being sold, and manufacturers can make general claims about health benets. With limited powers to regulate nutritional supplements, the FDA in recent years has stepped up its recalls of nutritional supplements that are adulterated with prescription medications. In the three years beginning January 2009, the agency demanded that 274 such supplements be withdrawn from the market until the prescription drugs they illegally contained was removed. More often than not, however, the latest assessment suggests the FDA is failing to enforce its orders. The sam ples-roughly three-quarters of which were produced by American manufacturers-were drawn anywhere from eight to 52 months after recalls had been ordered. The average sample was taken about three years after a recall. Of the 27 dietary supplements sampled by a team led by Dr. Pieter A. Cohen, 13 were sports-enhancement nutritional supplements, and 11 of them 85 percent continued to contain prescription ingredients (including anabolic steroids). Of nine weight-loss products sampled, six continued to contain prescription medications. Natural miracle cures peddled for weight loss can include any number of ingredients, ranging from unproven to outright harmful. The recalled products typically included sibutramine (marketed as Meridia) or phenolphthalein. Phenolphthalein is a laxative that is being withdrawn from over-the-counter medications as a possible carcinogen, and sibutramine was withdrawn from the market in 2010 after it found to have increased the risk of cardiovascular events such as stroke and heart attack. Among the illegal substances found in the supplements were a sibutramine analog, benzyl sibutramine, thats never been tested in humans. Although dietary supplements marketed as male enhancement are frequently recalled for containing sildenal (better known as Viagra), only one of the ve such products sampled still had the prescription product in it. If the FDA intends to protect the American public from products that could ply them with unknown prescription medications, Cohen wrote, it will need to increase its enforcement of supplement recalls and may need additional powers or resources to do the job.Supplements safe after FDA recall? Dont count on itBy MELISSA HEALYLOS ANGELES TIMESJust in time for u season, Google is experimenting with a feature that provides live video-chat advice to searchers looking for information on some medical conditions. Weve all probably convinced our selves at least once through frantic online searching, that we or our children have some sort of undiagnosed chronic or catastrophic disease. (Ebola, were looking at you.) With the video-chat option, Google may be able to alleviate some of those concerns by providing a real, live doctor to tamp down that panic level at those times when youre trying to gure out whether its worth scheduling a doctors appointment. Google conrmed that its running the program in a limited trial. When youre searching for basic health infor mation from conditions like insomnia or food poisoning our goal is provide you with the most helpful information available, Google said in a statement. Were trying this new feature to see if its useful to people. During the trial period, Google is covering all the costs of the online consultations. A Reddit user rst brought attention to the feature part of Googles general advice service, Helpouts in a post showing Google offering a video-chat option for his search on knee pain. Not every medical query yields the option for a live chat, and in some cases searchers may be asked to set up an appointment rather than have immediate access to a medical professional. Telehealth is an area of medicine that a lot of companies have been looking at, particularly to improve health care in rural parts of the country. But it carries its own regulatory headaches: In many cases, states dont allow for doctors to practice across state lines, which limits physicians ability to use telemedicine technology.A live, online doctor consult on GoogleBy HAYLEY TSUKYAMATHE WASHINGTON POST feelingfit.com 50472350 Complete Dental Careilk,Joseph Proscia, DDS General Dentist1940 Tamiami Trail, Suite 102 1 Port CharlotteCall Today! 941-623-9415www.CompleteDentaiCareFL.com$59 Cleaning, EmergencyExam & X-rays Exam(Reg. $321) Offer Expires 12/31/14.
