In a nutshell, the story of Charlotte Countys economy goes like this: A lot more people are coming here, many are buying existing homes, not building new ones and both the visitors and the folks already here are spending more money. Thats the picture painted by the latest Southwest Florida Regional Economic Indicators report released this week by the Regional Economic Research Institute at Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Lutgert College of Business. The tourism industry continues to power our economy, with seasonally adjusted tourism tax revenues rising 20 percent from August 2013 to August 2014. The $525,328 generated in June, July and August by the 5 percent tax on hotel rooms and short-term accommodations was the highest summertime total since the tourism bureau was created in 1997, the bureau announced in a recent press release. Helping drive that figure is a 73 percent spike in passengers at Punta Gorda Airport. Allegiant Air handled 38,744 travelers in August 2014 versus 28,283 in August 2013. The momentum continued to build in September 2014, with a 150 percent increase in passenger traffic compared with September 2013, according to the Charlotte County Airport Authority. The 26,423 September passengers brought the 2014 total to 474,815, more than double the 2013 total over the same nine-month period. With the traditional summer lull behind us, visitor and passenger numbers typically begin rising in the fall before peaking after the new year. Charlotte County lags behind Lee and Collier counties in new construction, with single-family permits flat from September 2013 to September 2014 at 47, while Lee (up 46 percent) and Collier (up 9 percent) continue their robust recovery from the 2006 housing bust. State population projections suggest Charlottes construction numbers will trend upward in coming years, if only to accommodate new residents. Based on two estimates from earlier this year, the county is expected to grow 4.7 percent to 174,121 residents in 2020 and 8.8 percent to 180,958 in 2025. Based on the countys 2.2 persons per household, those 14,654 newcomers will require an additional 6,660 homes, an increase of 6.6 percent over the existing 100,664 housing units in 2013, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Sales of existing homes remain a bright spot in Charlotte, with a 23 percent increase in September 2014 over the year earlier period and 17 percent higher than August 2014. The 377 homes sold fetched a median price of $145,000, 6 percent lower than September 2013, but up from the median price of $139,900 in August 2014. A drop in the unemployment rate to 5.9 percent and an increase in visitors drove taxable sales 8 percent higher in July 2014 to $195.5 million. The unemployment rate was down from 6.3 percent in August 2014 and 6.8 percent in September 2013. Brian Gleason is editorial page editor for the Sun Newspapers.

Modest growth in Charlotte PORT CHARLOTTE The Port Charlotte High School freshman who was hit by a car while walking to the bus stop Friday morning is expected to make a full recovery, but the girls family is left with some concerns about the conditions in her neighborhood. There needs to be sidewalks, there needs to be lights put up, and there needs to be a slower speed limit, Shay Burgess said. Burgess 15-year-old daughter, Kimberly Crowl, was struck from behind by a car while she was walking with her two sisters from their home on Ackerman Avenue to the school bus stop around the corner at Lake Worth Boulevard and Winona Street. It was about 6:15 a.m. There are no sidewalks or streetlights in the area, and the speed limit is 40 mph in some parts of the neighborhood.

His grandmother, though, is making her 14th return trip to Gilchrist Park. I brought his mom, his sister, and now its his turn, said Linda Delegal of Port Charlotte. From here we go trickor-treating through all of the Historic District. I like looking at the historical homes, and he denitely loves the candy. Yes, at 5 p.m. Friday, the Punta Gorda Historic District is building with excite ment, assuming its usual role as the Halloween epicenter. Jazmin Santana, 14, who was intro duced to the ice cream when she was just 5, came all the way from Englewood to be part of the scary scene. Its really busy here. I love the crowds, said Jazmin, dressed as Batgirl. For more than 80 years, the Masons have been keeping this ice cream tradition from melting away, bringing Halloween treats to hundreds of local ghosts and goblins. With the help of Blue Bell Creameries, its refrigeration truck and plenty of volunteers, the Masons have been handing out ice cream sandwiches to generations of trick-or-treaters. Its really something, said Paul Cook, now in his third year of delivering ice cream. We have a lot of people come by dressed up.Masons continue cool Halloween traditionBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERMASONS | 12SARASOTA COUNTY After more than four hours of deliberations Thursday night, a six-member jury found HIV-positive North Port resident Jose Rodriguez not guilty of sexually abusing his two step-grandsons. The jury, which featured ve men and one woman, found too many inconsistencies in the testimony of the two brothers who claimed to be victimized by Rodriguez over the course of several years. An alternate seventh juror, a woman, was dismissed prior to the start of deliberations at roughly 4 p.m. at the Sarasota County Justice Center. The boys, now ages 14 and 13, testied this week that Rodriguez sexually abused them at his home on South Salford Boulevard. The older boy claimed to be the most severely abused, saying Rodriguez performed sex acts on him every week, including intercourse, often multiple times. But the boy did not test positive for HIV, despite testifying that Rodriguez wore a condom only twice. A medical exam also found that the boy suffered no physical injuries that could indicate sexual abuse. The boys testimony regarding penetration also was inconsistent, when compared with the arrest afdavit.

Featured EventsPAID ADVERTISEMENTSCHARLOTTE COUNTY Robin Montesano suffers from multiple sclerosis and bad timing. Ten years ago, Montesano offered testimony in favor of medical marijuana during a legislative hearing in Massachusetts. As a nutrition scientist and educator, she remains a strong advocate of marijuanas medicinal use. As someone with MS, she also believes in showing compassion for the aficted who could be helped by medical marijuana. Two years ago, after she moved to Punta Gorda, Massachusetts adopted a medical marijuana program, one of 23 states today. Now she is speaking out in support of Floridas Amendment 2 ballot question, which, if approved, would allow medical marijuana with a doctors recommendation. The agenda here is quality of life that is the bottom line, she said. While her symptoms have subsided over time, she remembers having to self-medicate with apricot brandy. I was in intense pain for two years. I couldnt even sit in a chair, said Montesano, 57. Now Montesano is again letting her voice be heard in support of medical marijuana, based on facts and results, she said, not propaganda and fear. She is also standing up for her son, who experiences the excruciating pain associated with Crohns disease. I denitely would want him to use medical marijuana, she said. I dont think the state has the right to tell you how to alleviate your suffer ing. People should have the choice. June Cutright also is a Punta Gorda resident with MS, and she too is an outspoken advocate of medical marijuana. Speaking this week to a group of Florida Gulf Coast University students, she talked openly about her lifelong battle with the disease. First developing symptoms at age 15, Cutright wasnt diagnosed with MS until 45. Despite swimming every day, her disease is progressing to Compassion for the sick drives medical marijuana initiativeBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITER PHOTO PROVIDEDJune Cutright, at right, spoke on Tuesday to students at Florida Gulf Coast University. Cutright, who suers from multiple sclerosis, and Alison Carville, who has spina bida, were invited to talk on the potential benets of medical marijuana by Jessel Serrano, chapter founder and president of Students for Sensible Drug Policy. The best part about fall in Florida is the fact that you can spend time outdoors and not sweat to death. At Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity, sweat equity is something our partner families are excited to do any time of the year! Partner family Brittany Long was part of an enthusiastic group from Bayfront Health Punta Gorda that volunteered with Charlotte County Habitat recently to help her fulll sweat equity hours that are required by the homeownership program. Brittany, who is employed in Bayfronts Housekeeping Department, along with her supervisor, Donny Long, environmental services director for Bayfront Health, engaged a large group from the hospital to donate their Saturday and help build her home. Many tasks were completed, including raising the walls of the Shady Lane home. Included in the Bayfront Health group build was Brandon Downey, CEO; Marti Van Veen, system director of marketing and business development; and Chris Loftus, associate administrator. It was obvious the group enjoyed the task at hand, and the opportunity to help Brittany. Much positive feedback has been given about how the group truly enjoyed coming out to build. Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity would like to personally thank everyone from Bayfront Health who par ticipated in making this day a great success.

The Sun /Saturday, November 1, 2014 C Our Town Page 3 FROM PAGE ONE Burgess said Friday by phone from Kimberlys hospital room at Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers. Ill be driving them. Burgess said Kimberly had a brace on her leg, cuts all over her face and arms, and her spirit was up and down. Doctors planned to hold her overnight. The worried mother said she plans to contact local ofcials, but hadnt yet. The Sun was unable to reach Charlotte County Public Works staff for comment Friday. Charlotte County Public Schools spokesman Mike Riley said the school district would be looking into the incident to see if it can do anything to help. Its horrible, he said. But its hard to point a nger at anybody. About four weeks before Fridays incident, Charlotte High School student Angel Martinez-Garcia, 17, was stuck by a box truck while walking, reportedly in the roadway, to his bus stop in the Parkside area. The teen later died from his injuries. We were so on top of this after Angel, and we hoped it would raise awareness for drivers and students, Riley said. Kimberly was walking Friday morning west on Ackerman with her sisters Adrienne, 16, and Taylor, 17, who go to the same school. Adrienne and Taylor were walking in the grass, and Kimberly was on the white line on the roadway, just next to the grass. They were facing the same direction as trafc. A car driven by another Port Charlotte High student, Peder Nielsen, 17 struck Kimberly and Taylor from behind. Taylor suffered minor injuries to her elbow, but Kimberly hit the hood and windshield before rolling into a ditch, a Florida Highway Patrol report shows. We didnt hear it coming at all, Adrienne said. The girls walk to school together all the time, and Adrienne said there have been close calls before. She said she doesnt like the fact that its dark, and she and her sisters have to walk in the grass. Cars have come close before and swerved, Adrienne said. I wish they would pay more attention to seeing us. Authorities said the girls should have been walking facing trafc, and the FHP report reects that, as the only charges notes are for pedestrian violations. Nielsen wasnt cited, and the report shows he never saw the girls. I dont like how dark it can be around here, said Tom Shoecraft, who lives a couple houses down from the Crowls. Shoecraft was putting his shoes on to go to work when he heard a thud and screaming. He called 911 after he went outside and realized what had happened. He said Kimberly had a knot on her head and blood on her face, and Peder was trying to comfort her. Donna Dunbar lives on Ackerman near the intersection with Hottelet Circle, by where the accident occurred. She said she can remember three crashes on that same street within the last few years. I dont drive when its dark anymore, she said. I see a lot of kids walking on the road and they wear dark clothes. There are 15 students who were assigned to the nearby bus stop, according to the school district. PCHS principal Steve Dionisio said Friday he doesnt know Kimberly personally because shes been at the school only since August, but teachers and her peers spoke highly of her Friday. She is in the Naval JROTC program, and is a good student, he said. We hope to see her back at school soon, Dionisio added.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comSTUDENTFROM PAGE 1 MURDOCK A 29-year-old man was jailed Friday after reportedly eeing from Walmart security, and swimming through a pond, all while carrying his 18-month-old daughter with him. Witnesses said the man later identied as Brent Asheley Scott went under the water with the child, and also dropped the girl on the ground causing her to hit her head during the escape attempt. The toddler was checked out at a local hospital and went home with her mother. The incident occurred around 11:30 a.m. Thursday. Scott was at the Walmart in Murdock when he selected a package of Huggies Baby Wipes and a baby rattle, put them in the shopping cart next to the baby, and then walked past the check-out counters toward the exits, according to a loss prevention ofcer who was keeping an eye on the shopper. Employees approached the man, who grabbed his daughter and ran off toward Applebees, the Charlotte County Sheriffs report shows. The loss prevention ofcer called 911 and told the dispatcher that Scott ran into a retention pond with his baby both went under the water. The ofcer said the child had water coming out of her mouth and was crying when they resurfaced. Scott made his way to the Murdock Medical Plaza across U.S. 41 and was trying to get into a vehicle, but then ran back over U.S. 41 to the parking lot near Taco Bell. Witnesses agged the deputy over to the area, and Scott was handcuffed because the 911 caller was there and identied him as the suspect. Scotts daughter was crying, dirty and soaking wet from her head to feet, the report shows. She was medically cleared at Bayfront Health Port Charlotte. The Department of Children and Families is also investigating. Scott, of the 23100 block of Seneca Avenue in Port Charlotte, is facing criminal charges of petty theft, resisting a retail merchant, child neglect and violation of probation, which he was on for driving with a suspended license for the second time. He also had his bond revoked for a recent battery charge. He remained in the Charlotte County Jail on Friday without bond. The total value of the baby wipes and rattle Scott tried to steal was $4.47. Authorities found a $5 bill in his pocket when he was arrested. Scott has been trespassed from all the Walmart stores in Charlotte County.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comReport: Thief flees into pond with babyBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITER SCOTTTIPS FOR WALKERS IN THE DARK Choose the most well-lit path. If the only option is dark, take a light with you. Use sidewalks when available. If not available, walk facing traffic. If wearing dark clothes, have a reflective device with you. Always carry ID on you, in case something bad does happen to you. Always carry a phone so you can call for help if needed. Dont have earphones in or be on the phone if walking along the road. Sources: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Charlotte County Fire/EMS the point where even sleeping is difcult. Some muscle spasms are brought on by relaxation, like at night, said Cutright, now 54. She continues to try an array of powerful prescription drugs, at an annual cost of $45,000, but some caused internal bleeding, forcing her to take blood tests every day. Meanwhile, she is down to 110 pounds. Ironically, while opponents of the medical marijuana initiative say its use will lead to harder drugs, Cutright believes just the opposite. Marijuana would lessen her dependence on narcotics, she said, by relieving her muscle spasms, chronic pain and loss of appetite. Narcotics addiction is real. Ive known people like that, she said. If medical marijuana were available, I could take a quarter of the narcotics and use marijuana as a supplement. But, for now, she is part of the sickness culture taking pills that dont work, with no control over her disease. Im frustrated this has become a political issue, she said. How dare you try to withhold treatment from someone. Theres so many arguments that have been twisted, based on fear and misinfor mation, reactive not reective. Its not the substance, its our relationship to it.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comMEDICALFROM PAGE 2 50473355

Additional funding brings the total county health department budget to $5.21 million.

DEUTSCH District 4 SUN PHOTO BY SOMMER BROKAWJohn David McQueen points to his pickup in a portrait unveiled at the 2014 Keystone Honoree event in his honor. Artist Larry Hudson painted the portrait.PUNTA GORDA John David McQueen went across the street from his family cattle ranch for a reception honoring him at Florida SouthWestern State College Charlotte Campus. Although he is semiretired now, he spent several years in public service. The Keystone Society, which works with the colleges foundation to support the arts, named him as its honoree Thursday evening, for his dedication while supporting the college and local community. An unveiling of a painting in his honor followed his acceptance speech. This whole thing started in 1976 when I was elected to the School Board, McQueen said. Then, while he was on the Edison Community College board of trustees (FSWs previous name), he got a call from Vernon Peeples, who then was serving in the state House and wanted to expand the campus to Charlotte. You can all thank Vernon Peeples for this campus, McQueen told the crowd. During McQueens service on the Charlotte County School Board from 1976 to 1982, Lemon Bay High School in Englewood, the Charlotte County Vo-Tech Center (now Charlotte Technical Center) and Port Charlotte High School were built. As part of the Edison Community College board of trustees for four years during the 1980s, the Charlotte campus and Health Sciences Hall and Lee campus were built. In an inter view with the Sun he said what makes him most proud about his public service is being involved with the construction of all these monuments of education. He estimates that while he was on the School Board, and then on Edisons board, over $100 million was involved in constructing Charlotte County, and this (Charlotte campus) topped it off. Before the unveiling of the painting, Rita Beverly said her father Larry Hudson, the artist, had served with McQueen on a farm service board years ago. She said he was sad he couldnt make it out to the event, but he tried to portray traits for which McQueen is known in the painting, such as his pickup with bumper stickers, and his family cattle ranch. Ann Gateff, Keystone founder, said the group wanted the Keystone Gallery to not only display art, but also inform visitors to the art of some of the special people who built the college, and had a huge impact on this county and beyond. McQueen graduated with a masters degree in economics from Florida State University, and served as a professor of economics for thenEdison Junior College, prior to his service on the School Board. He was born in Fort Myers only because there was not a hospital in Punta Gorda at the time. He married his wife Sharon in 1971, and they now have 13 grandchildren. Im semiretired now, he said. I work on my cattle ranch, and enjoy my grandchildren.Email: sbrokaw@sun-herald.comKeystone society honors cattlemanBy SOMMER BROKAWSTAFF WRITER


Our Town Page 6 C The Sun /Saturday, November 1, 2014 RELIGION NEWS How friendly is your church? According to Jesus, the Church in Sardis offered little to attract visitors. In Revelation 3:1, Jesus says that although they had a reputation for being alive, He considered them dead! Now theres an oxymoron for you! An oxymoron connects two contradictory words, like black light, or pretty ugly. John introduced Jesus to the Church at Sardis as the One who holds the seven Spirits of God and has the seven stars in his hand. In Revelation 1:4, the sevenfold Spirit extended a salutation of grace and peace. This refers back to Isaiah 11:1-2, where the prophet writes about the Spirit of (1) Jehovah, (2) wisdom, (3) understanding, (4) counsel, (5) might, (6) knowledge and (7) the fear of Jehovah. The seven stars were identied earlier in Revelation 1:20 as the seven angels or messengers to the seven churches. In evaluating the Church in Sardis, Jesus has very little good to say about the believers there. If this church doesnt Wake up! and Strengthen what is left, it will die (Revelation 3:2). Jesus criticism is clear: You have not done all that my God wants you to do. Chiseled into Gods slate about the believers in Sardis were sins of omission, rather than sins of commission. Jesus accuses them of failing to remember what you have been taught and have heard, and to obey it. If they didnt turn away from their sins and wake up, Jesus would come like a thief and they would be left clueless (verse 3). Nevertheless, Jesus does recognize a few people in Sardis who have kept their clothes clean and will walk with Him, dressed in white, because they are worthy. Those who over come will also be dressed in white, and He will never erase their names from the Book of Life. He also will speak of them by name to His Father and His angels (verses 4-5). The Church of Jesus Christ that listens to what the Holy Spirit is saying today wont be caught off guard when Jesus returns to take His followers to their heavenly home. The God who knows our names, knows what we need. Hes not coming back for a corpse, but for a Church that is vibrant and victorious! The Rev. Larry Armbrust, a retired United Methodist Florida Conference pastor, lives in Port Charlotte. Email him at pastorlwa2@ Fabric of Our Faith: Setting our sails, part 5 Larry Armbrust Pancake breakfastAn all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast sponsored by the United Methodist Men will be offered from 7a.m. to 11a.m. today at Port Charlotte United Methodist Church, 21075 Quesada Ave. In addition to all the pancakes you care to eat, the menu includes fresh scrambled eggs, sausages links, biscuits and sausage gravy, apple sauce, orange juice, coffee/tea and milk for children.

Leo TolstoyNeither achievement nor accomplishment will deter judgment or disgrace if one fails to get a grip on his or her appetite of desire. The words John Climacus spoke are true: Self-control is the mother of spiritual health. Even though some think otherwise, we never outgrow our potential for wrongdoing. Scandal surrounded the life of King Solomon, the wisest man on the planet in his day. The Bible declares in 1 Kings 11:4, For when Solomon was old, his heart was not loyal to the Lord his God. Moses, a man who was instrumental in changing the world, in spite of all God accomplished through him, lashed out at his followers and disobeyed the Lord. God said to him (Numbers 20:11-12), Because you did not trust in me enough to honor me ... you will not bring this community into the land of promise. This great prophet had labored 40 years, working to complete the mission of leading the Jews into Israel, but he was not allowed to nish the assignment. A foolish and impulsive moment cost him dearly. Even though he was sincerely sorry and pleaded with the Lord for a second chance to nish the work he began, God refused to let him (Deuteronomy 3:23-26). No one is free who is not a master of him or herself (Epictetus). Is there hope for us, and can we really master ourselves? Of course! The failures of Moses and Solomon simply remind us of the fact that we are all vulnerable. Never let down your defenses for a moment. Everything that God commands us not to do is harmful to our well-being. Watchman Nee said, There are some very strong words of condence in the Bible: God always leads us in triumph and sin shall not dominate our lives. Yet the Apostles John and Paul, the men who made these declarations, also said with the utmost humility I am chief of sinners, and if we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves. If these two opposite statements are to be reconciled, then we must conclude that the two experiences comprise the life of a believer: we must know Christs fullness and we must also recognize the fact of our vulnerability. He who reigns within himself, and rules passions, desires and fears, is more than a king (John Milton). The Rev. Dan Turpin is pastor of Westcoast Church in Englewood.

The Sun /Saturday, November 1, 2014 C Our Town Page 9 Look for a third crossword in the Sun Classified section. LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS PUNTA GORDA Three people from Southwest Florida are accused of turning a Fort Myers teenager into a sex slave, and authorities found one of the suspects inside the Charlotte County Jail. Federal investigators say the three suspects traveled to North Carolina and forced the 19-year-old alleged victim into prostitution. WINK News helped investigators find one of the suspects. Julia Farias was in the Charlotte County Jail for another crime. Shes now accused in the multistate trafficking case. Charlotte County Sheriffs spokeswoman Debbie Bowe said she was happy to have the help. If it wasnt for you guys, theyd still be searching in North Carolina right now, Bowe said. Farias had been arrested on local charges of driving on a suspended license, trying to evade deputies and violation of probation. But Farias, along with 33-year-old Vanessa Snyder and 22-year-old Allen Harris Jr., now is accused of kidnapping the teenager, driving her to North Carolina, and forcing her to become a prostitute. The victim in this case was basically kicked out, beaten and forced into sexual servitude, Bowe said. Deputies say the 19-year-old was held captive in a boarding house in Graham, N.C. According to authorities, she was forced to have sex with men for cash. Snyder and Harris had been located earlier, but investigators were still looking for Farias. Harris was already in custody for unrelated crimes in Lee County. Prosecutors in North Carolina are trying to have him extradited as quickly as possible. Farias remained at the Charlotte County Jail Friday without bond.Woman wanted for multistate human trafficking found in areaBy MATT DOUGHERTYWINK NEWS PORT CHARLOTTE A man has been accused of severely beating his girlfriend because she was questioning him about a pair of womens sunglasses she found near his bed, according to a Charlotte County Sheriffs report. Darren James Rodriguez, 49, was having relationship issues, so he was staying with his boss at a home on Dime Court, the report shows. A couple of weeks ago, he agreed to meet with his 45-year-old girlfriend at the house to talk about their issues. When Rodriguez went into the shower, the woman found a pair of womens sunglasses next to Rodriguezs bed. She questioned him about it, and he became upset. Authorities say Rodriguez came out of the shower, punched the woman in the face and kicked her in her sides and in her chest area. He reportedly told her she deserves (it), and she better not tell anyone, or else. The victim pretended to be unconscious, so Rodriguez let her go and returned to his shower. She then ran outside. When Rodriguez gured out she was eeing, he ran out after her, naked, and said, You think you can get away that easily, the report shows. Rodriguez allegedly dragged the woman back into the house and punched her in the mouth, causing a tooth to fall out. He also reportedly kicked her some more. The incident occurred Oct. 18, but the victim was scared to report it. However, on Monday, she couldnt take the physical pain anymore, so she checked into a local hospital. She had ve broken ribs. She went to the Sheriffs Ofce and pressed charges. Authorities caught up with Rodriguez Thursday and arrested him on a second-degree felony count of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm. He was held at the Charlotte County Jail Friday without bond. If convicted, Rodriguez could face 15 years in prison.

Our Town Page 10 C The Sun /Saturday, November 1, 2014 Her side was never toldEditor: I went to see a therapist, and he had to leave for medical reasons. I had seen him for quite a few years. He recommended someone else at the clinic. Well the situation went from bad to worse. She ended up being disrespectful to me. I did have and still have a major problem. One of them is a liar and the second professional goes and lets the owner of the clinic hear my messages that I left that were not so nice. My question is why was I indicted, tried and found guilty without me even knowing what was going on. I just get a letter in the mail telling me not to come back. Did she tell him that I called and that I left messages when I was crying and begging for her to call me back? Did she say that I called 8-10 times asking her to please call me back, which she never did? If someone is going for therapy and they leave the therapist a voice mail, and you never return those calls, isnt that wrong? I did not get a chance to face my accusers. I think that is a horrible thing to do. Yes, you better believe I have some problems, but do not make them worse for me by not giving me a chance to explain my side. But then I am not a mental health professional.Carol Leonard Port Charlotte Input on road project neededEditor: Special meeting of the NWPC Community League and the NWPC-MSBU is Nov. 13, at 7 p.m. Church of the Living Waters, 12475 Chancellor Blvd. Please invite your neighbors. We need your input. Public Works is presenting a proposal to pave all streets in Northwest Port Charlotte for $35 million and would cost each Lot owner an additional $93, ($75 previously budgeted) or a total of $218 yearly for 10 years. Not included is swale work. Vacant lots would need additional peppertree clearing in order to swale, Both would be unbudgeted additional costs. Swale work should have a period to settle and insure that its correctly done. A primary cause of road cracking is poor drainage. Some board members have maintained a position that not all roads need paving at this time. Some need maintenance that has never been done. Some roads have been paved more recently than others. A lot of areas only contain vacant lots which may not have activity for many years to come. The Advisory Board asked two years ago, that swale work be completed in a phase before paving. The board has requested an engineering report by street which was budgeted last year. We should receive that report shortly. We feel an organized approach by selectively doing separate phases will lower cost and maximize the utility of our roads instead of wildly guessing at numbers. Perhaps this will provide Public Works the opportunity to provide us their promised First Class Job.Buz Collins Port CharlotteCooking for Kids a big successEditor: As chairman of Englewoods Big Brothers Big Sisters Community Board, I want to single out those who made our Chefs Cooking For Kids event such as huge success. We set a record with 300 in attendance, a sell-out. Our thanks to everyone who supported our cause, including the attendees, our corporate sponsors, silent auction donors and the Englewood Event Center staff. We salute the 21 chefs who did yeoman work serving up their specialties to satisfy hearty appetites. And our gratitude to Clinton Burton, editor of the Englewood Sun and Gabriela Ramirez, editor of your papers Lets Go! entertainment supplement, for generous advance coverage of our event. Without their support, the result would be much different. Our sincere thanks to all!Dan Cotton Charlotte County Sheris Oce EnglewoodMix a pitcher of martinis Tuesday evening to fortify yourself against the torrent of election returns painting a pointillist portrait of the nations mind. Before you become too mellow to care, consider some indexes of our civic tendencies. Voting began, and persuasion campaign ing receded, weeks ago. Mobilization measures became more important than ads. Saturation spending on ads makes for a steep decline in the utility of the last dollars spent on them. In the 2012 presidential race, $46 million was spent on 56,837 ads in Las Vegas; $30 million was spent on 39,259 in Columbus, Ohio. Ads become audible wallpaper, there but not really noticed. Future campaign money may increasingly be spent on the expensive, because labor-intensive, business of identifying and prodding to the polls likely supporters. Tammany Hall did this 150 years ago, although its infantry did not carry smartphones with apps sending data about voters to the campaigns. In midterm elections, turnout usually is frail and pale, meaning older and whiter than in presidential elections, when three Democratic-leaning constituencies minorities, young people and unmarried women are more apt to vote. If Democratic candidates run ahead of their end-of-campaign polls, this will indicate that their party retains its mobilization advantage. If Republicans narrowly win Senate control, their joy should be tempered by this fact: In 2016, they will be defending 24 of the 34 seats at issue. These will include three in states that are among the 18 that have voted Democratic in at least six consecutive presidential elections. These Republican seats are Pat Toomeys in Pennsylvania, Ron Johnsons in Wisconsin and Mark Kirks in Illinois. Because Senate control The stakes on Tuesdays election George Will WILL | 11President Barack Obama isnt the only prominent Democrat keeping a low prole on the campaign trail this fall. While top GOP gures like Mitt Romney and would-be 2016 Republican presidential contenders are out raising money and support for GOP candidates and themselves Obama and the partys two top congressional leaders, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Harry Reid, have sought to minimize the oppositions ability to make them prime election targets. But Obama, as well as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, have still played a major role by raising millions of dollars to help Democratic candidates maintain parity in the megabucks race for campaign advertising. In a larger sense, however, the fact that the three top Democratic ofce-holders are so sufciently unpopular that they need to limit their public campaigning is a signal the party is more than overdue to match the GOP in developing a new generation of leaders that would help give it more of a forward-looking image. Though its far too late to reverse the drag stemming from Obamas low job approval, time will relieve that problem since Obamas term ends in two years. Long before then, he may be rivaled if not superseded in the limelight by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, assuming the partys 2016 presidential front-runner enters the White House race. On Capitol Hill, though, Democrats show little sign of an impending transformation to new, younger leadership. Their problem is especially evident in the House, where the GOP earlier this year promoted Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California, 49, to majority leader and Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, 49, to majority whip. Though Rep. John Boehner of Ohio, nearing 66, remains speaker, all three GOP leaders are at least a decade younger than their Democratic counterparts, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California, 74; Minority Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland, 75; and Assistant Minority Leader James Clyburn of South Carolina, 74.

First passed by voters in 1994 and extended in 1998, 2002 and 2008, the tax has raised more than $346 million and funded more than 82 projects, ranging from transportation infrastructure to public safety to parks, libraries and cultural amenities. Without the revenues, proper ty taxes would have been higher, critical infrastructure would have been missing, scaled back or delayed, redevelopment efforts in Punta Gorda would have been underfunded and dozens of heavily used recreational and cultural amenities would not exist. The countys ability to cope with the 2006 housing bust and subsequent recession would have been severely constrained if it were forced to allocate ad valorem taxes to critical infrastructure projects. Delays due to lack of funding would have added to the costs of those projects, further restricting the countys ability to fund needed improvements. Critics of the sales tax who contend its temporary status has morphed into a permanent one fail to acknowledge it has enabled the county to hold down property taxes by spreading the tax burden from homeowners and businesses to visitors, renters and seasonal residents. They also gloss over the fact that voters themselves have repeatedly endorsed the sales tax as a revenue source to augment property taxes, state revenue sharing money and other sources of county funding. Charlotte Countys economic health is dependent on attracting new residents and visitors (many of whom become residents) because its organic growth rate is negative. The annual number of deaths in the county is double the number of births. We have seen the impact of stagnant population growth over the past several years. The construction industry, one of the countys three economic pillars, crashed and still has not caught up with neighboring counties. Retail sales plunged by more than 30 percent, forcing employee layoffs among businesses that managed to survive. If we do not invest in our community, if we do not offer an attractive quality of life, if we do not offer amenities in demand among retirees, we cannot hope to keep replacing residents, never mind grow. Those who criticize the cost of growth and we are among those who contend the county subsidizes growth with low or non-existent impact fees cant ignore the real costs of population stagnation or loss. Fixed costs, such as road maintenance, utilities, government and public safety, will be spread among a smaller group of taxpayers. The irony is that those remaining taxpayers, including those who voted against extending the sales tax, will be paying more while visitors and others who pay the current sales tax will enjoy a tax break. Charlotte County is what it is today because of residents decision to tax themselves to meet their communities needs. What it will become depends in large part on their decision Tuesday on extending the sales tax for six more years. We encourage voters to go to the countys website ( and see what the sales tax has funded over the years and what the extension will pay for. We think youll agree, the county is and will be better off because of these investments. The Sun recommends a Yes vote on the 1 percent local option sales tax referendum.


The Sun /Saturday, November 1, 2014 C Our Town Page 11 David Dunn-Rankin surprised me with his publishers column recently which complimented me for sticking to my beliefs. I was talking with a friend during the last Charlotte commission race. He was mentioning how hard he was campaigning to stop that liberal Democrat, Valerie Guenther, from beating a real Republican, Bill Truex, Dunn-Rankin wrote in his Oct. 2 column. I suggested if she was a commissioner that she would be less liberal than several existing Republican commissioners I named. Tell her to switch to the Republican Party and I can write her a check, he responded. To Valeries credit, she has stayed a Democrat. I respect that because I do believe if she switched parties, she could get elected. Ill never switch. I believe in Democratic values of family, education, job creation and protecting our community and nation. Democrats believe in efcient government that puts quality education, affordable health care, and a strong economy rst. Womens issues are economic issues, and womens rights are civil rights. Speaking of civil rights, we believe in expanding opportunity for all. That includes ghting attempts to suppress our votes and working for reform that creates accessible and fair elections in which every lawfully cast vote is counted. Democrats reject the false choice between economic prosperity and a healthy environment because economic strength and environmental health go hand-in-hand. Democrats believe in immigration reform that will protect our national security and secure our economic future, and we want to enact ethics reform to limit the inuence of special interests and lobbyists. I have run for local ofce in Charlotte County twice as a Democrat. As a Democrat here in Charlotte County, you know you are chasing windmills. But you try. Its hard on your family, and it is physically exhausting. Youre away from the family attending functions meeting people, and schmoozing almost every day until late at night for at least a year. The minuscule differences between moderate Democrats and moderate Republicans are ignored in our local elections. I considered myself a moderate, thoughtful candidate who should not have been negatively labeled for trying. After my last loss I was depressed. I avoided my friends. I didnt return phone calls. I moped. Neighbors, along with Republicans I had met on the campaign, called to encourage me to switch parties. If I switched, I would win. Or, as Dunn-Rankin put it in his article: To Valeries credit, she has stayed a Democrat. I respect that because I do believe if she switched parties, she could get elected. But I wont switch. I think of what a supportive neighbor, a conservative Canadian, told me after my most recent election loss. Valerie, be who you are where you are. Hes right. Booker T. Washington used to tell a story about a sailing ship that had become becalmed and started to drift. As the sailors grew desperate for water, they saw another ship nearby. Water! shouted the becalmed sailors. A message came back from the other ship cast down your bucket where you are. This happened several times, until a desperate sailor lowered a bucket. The ship had drifted into a freshwater stream! I love Charlotte County. My husband and I have made this community our home. I have a great job and have grown to know and love my friends. This is my home. I will continue to cast down my bucket, my Democratic bucket, right here in Charlotte County. I encourage the disgruntled Democrats, independents and NPA voters to make their difference with a vote. Be who you are where you are. Accept the obvious solution that your vote matters and it really counts this time. And, as my neighbor told me, I will be who I am where I am. Valerie Guenther is chair of the Charlotte County Democratic Club. She can be reached at valerie@valerieguenther. com.Proud to be a Democrat despite challenges Valerie Guenther For almost two decades, Japan has been held up as a cautionary tale, an object lesson on how not to run an advanced economy. After all, the island nation is the rising superpower that stumbled. One day, it seemed, it was on the road to high-tech domination of the world economy; the next it was suffering from seemingly endless stagnation and deation. And Western economists were scathing in their criticisms of Japanese policy. I was one of those critics; Ben Bernanke, who went on to become chairman of the Federal Reserve, was another. And these days, I often nd myself thinking that we ought to apologize. Now, Im not saying that our economic analysis was wrong. The paper I published in 1998 about Japans liquidity trap, or the paper Bernanke published in 2000 urging Japanese policymakers to show Rooseveltian resolve in confronting their problems, have aged fairly well. In fact, in some ways they look more relevant than ever now that much of the West has fallen into a prolonged slump very similar to Japans experience. The point, however, is that the West has, in fact, fallen into a slump similar to Japans but worse. And that wasnt supposed to happen. In the 1990s, we assumed that if the United States and Western Europe found themselves facing anything like Japans problems, we would respond much more effectively than the Japanese had. But we didnt, even though we had Japans experience to guide us. On the contrary, Western policies since 2008 have been so inadequate if not actively counterproductive that Japans failings seem minor in comparison. And Western workers have experienced a level of suffering that Japan has managed to avoid. What policy failures am I talking about? Start with government spending. Everyone knows that in the early 1990s Japan tried to boost its economy with a surge in public investment; its less well-known that public investment fell rapidly after 1996 even as the government raised taxes, undermining progress toward recovery. This was a big mistake, but it pales by comparison with Europes hugely destructive austerity policies or the collapse in infrastructure spending in the United States after 2010. Japanese scal policy didnt do enough to help growth; Western scal policy actively destroyed growth. Or consider monetary policy. The Bank of Japan, Japans equivalent of the Federal Reserve, has received a lot of criticism for reacting too slowly to the slide into deation and then for being too eager to raise interest rates at the rst hint of recovery. That criticism is fair, but Japans central bank never did anything as wrongheaded as the European Central Banks decision to raise rates in 2011, helping to send Europe back into recession. And even that mistake is trivial compared with the awesomely wrongheaded behavior of the Riksbank, Swedens central bank, which raised rates despite below-target ination and relatively high unemployment and appears, at this point, to have pushed Sweden into outright deation. The Swedish case is especially striking because the Riksbank chose to ignore one of its own deputy governors: Lars Svensson, a world-class monetary economist who had worked extensively on Japan and who had warned his colleagues that premature rate increases would have exactly the effects they did, in fact, have. So there are really two questions here. First, why has everyone seemed to get this so wrong? Second, why has the West, with all its famous economists not to mention the ability to learn from Japans woe made an even worse mess than Japan did? The answer to the rst question, I think, is that responding effectively to depression conditions requires abandoning conventional respectability. Policies that would ordinarily be prudent and virtuous, like balancing the budget or taking a rm stand against ination, become recipes for a deeper slump. And its very hard to persuade inuential people to make that adjustment just look at the Washington establishments inability to give up on its decit obsession. As for why the West has done even worse than Japan, I suspect that its about the deep divisions within our societies. In America, conservatives have blocked efforts to ght unemployment out of a general hostility to government, especially a government that does any thing to help Those People. In Europe, Germany has insisted on hard money and austerity largely because the German public is intensely hostile to anything that could be called a bailout of southern Europe. Ill be writing more soon about whats happening in Japan now, and the new lessons the West should be learning. For now, heres what you should know: Japan used to be a cautionary tale, but the rest of us have messed up so badly that it almost looks like a role model instead. Paul Krugman is a columnist for The New York Times. He can be reached via lessons the West should be learning Paul Krugman is at issue, insufcient attention has been paid to 2014s most important election, which is in the worst-governed state. Illinois incumbent governor is Pat Quinn, a compliant time-server who oated up from lieutenant governor when Rod Blagojevich became the fourth of the previous nine governors to be imprisoned. The state has high unemploy ment, low growth and more than $100 billion in unfunded pension liabilities. If voters ratify the states trajectory by re-electing Quinn, he will accelerate the downward spiral by continuing policies that have produced it, beginning by making permanent the temporary tax increases. Republicans will win if their candidate, businessman Bruce Rauner, wins and delivers, among other things, a campaign to term limit the state legislators who, collaborating with government employees unions, buy job permanence using money looted from taxpayers. Republicans also will win if Quinn wins, thereby making Illinois a scary example to the nation of the terrible toll taken by the blue model of governance. Although U.S. law allows a one-party city like Detroit to go bankrupt, there is no provision for state bankruptcies. Hence a Quinn victory would provide, perhaps within his next term, hair-raising excitement for Illinois masochistic electorate as lenders recoil from Americas Argentina. Kansas Republican governor Sam Brownback is in a close race with a Democrat who is severely critical of Brownbacks tax cuts but who does not say he would repeal them. Wisconsins Republican governor Scott Walker is in a close race with a Democrat who is severely critical of Walkers limitations on government workers unions but who does not say she would completely repeal them. Tuesday will tell if these unheroic straddles succeed. We govern through parties and this autumn President Obamas has repudiated his. Tuesday will supply evidence of not only how little pulse Obamas presidency still has, but how much damage he has done to his party. Before he led it to its 2010 debacle, it controlled 62 state legislative chambers to the Republicans 36. Entering Tuesday Republicans led Democrats, 59-39. (Subtract two chambers because Nebraskas Legislature is unicameral and nonpartisan.) Can Democrats stop the hemorrhaging? Earnest improvers, eager to tightly wrap the regulatory states tentacles around the democratic process, say the Republic is ruined because about $1 billion has been spent on ads in the 2014 cycle electing governors, senators and representatives. Considering the enor mous consequences the political class has as it sloshes trillions of dollars hither and yon, it is strange that in selecting the 2015 members of this class Americans spent less than half the $2.2 billion they spent last month on Halloween candy. In this autumn of antic rhetoric, Hillary Clinton achieved almost sublime silliness: Dont let anybody tell you its corporations and businesses that create jobs. Her subsequent clarication was that this short-handed her economic thinking. We are going to need a lot more gin and vermouth. George Will is a columnist for The Washington Post. Readers may reach him at georgewill@ PAGE 10House candidates in 201314, has consistently said she will remain the partys leader, even if Democrats fail for the second straight election to regain the majority they lost in 2010. All signs are that she remains personally popular with House Democrats, and the number of more conservative Democrats who might resist her liberal image has shrunk in recent elections. Besides, knowledgeable Democrats have long said she wont step down as long as Hoyer is next in line, alluding to a decades-long enmity that dates back to their days as interns in the same Maryland senators ofce. By staying, however, they block prospects for promoting such younger leadership candidates as Reps. Xavier Becerra of California, 56; Chris van Hollen of Maryland, 55; Steve Israel of New York, 56; or Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, 48. The age disparity is less evident in the Senate where Reid is 75, and his GOP counterpart, Mitch McConnell, is 72. Neither are popular gures, but there are no signs either is planning to leave, assuming McConnell survives his current tough re-election ght. In fact, Reid has already salted away nearly $20 million for his 2016 re-election race. This year, he has attended some 116 meetings in 15 cities to help the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and two independent political action committees, reportedly raising more than $50 million alone for the Senate Majority PAC. He also used his role controlling the Senate calendar to protect Democratic senators from having to vote on measures passed by the GOP-controlled House that Obama would have vetoed. As a master of senatorial procedures, he will be an effective leader if his party again nds itself in the negative, occasionally obstructionist role that the GOP has played in recent years. But like Pelosi, he would not be nearly as effective a public party spokesperson as his deputies, Sens. Dick Durbin of Illinois, nearing 70, and Charles Schumer of New York, 64. Especially in the House, many members would like to see a change in leader ship. But it seems highly likely that it would take a further cataclysm, such as loss of the presidency in 2016, for a majority to reach the conclusion that the nations oldest party needs to give itself a new face.

Our Town Page 12 C The Sun /Saturday, November 1, 2014 FROM PAGE ONE Even some of the Masons don costumes for the Halloween event. And its been that way for a long time. Gov. Albert W. Gilchrist, a Punta Gorda resident and former grand master of the local and state Masonic chapters, used to buy ice cream cones from an area drugstore for children every Halloween. Then, upon his death in 1926, he passed along his legacy to the Punta Gorda Masonic Lodge by establishing an Albert W. Gilchrist Ice Cream and Charity Fund in his will. We get a lot of kids, parents and friends. Pretty much anybody who likes ice cream, said Glen Purdy, worshipful master of the Masons. Its nice to see a smile on everybodys faces. Its a lot of fun. Purdy planned to give away about 1,500 ice cream bars this year, continuing until they run out. But the supply of free ice cream never really will end at the annual Halloween event. Im sure it will continue on, Purdy said. Lodge secretary Ed Stepp, now in his 18th year with the organization, said the Masons practice what they preach by supporting a host of local charities. They also operate the Masonic Home of Florida in St. Petersburg, a residential facility where aging master Masons and their wives and widows are cared for, including two from the Punta Gorda Masonic Lodge, chartered in 1890. I just love it, Stepp said. Its one of the greatest fraternal organizations in the world.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comMASONSFROM PAGE 1 Edwards painted a portrait of Rodriguez for jurors as a victim instead of a predator, and said the boys had concocted the tales of sexual abuse to cover up the real inappropriate relationship in the family between the older boy and a female cousin. Rodriguez, 54, was charged in April with four counts each of sexual assault on a victim younger than 12 and fondling a child younger than 12, two counts of sexual assault by a custodian on a child younger than 12, three counts of lewd or lascivious behavior, and one count of an HIV-infected person having sex with a nonconsenting adult. He came to the attention of authorities after he told the boys stepfather that the older brother had been having a inappropriate physical relationship with the female cousin. When the stepfather confronted the boy, it was then he was told of the alleged sexual abuse at the hands of Rodriguez that he said spanned nine years. The younger boy later would do the same, although he claimed the abuse he suffered was far less frequent than that experienced by his older brother. Twelfth Circuit Judge Frederick Mercurio, who presided over the fourday trial, refused to allow jurors to hear certain parts of testimony from the boys stepfather, Jeffrey Cannon, who claimed on the stand that the boys biological father also was accused of molesting the same female cousin with whom the older brother had a physical relationship, but later was cleared. But even without that particular detail, Edwards was able to sway the jury to believe the family suffered from darker issues of secrecy that turned Rodriguez into the victim, especially since the boy and his female cousin previously had been warned about inappropriate physical contact, years before the boys accused Rodriguez of sexual abuse. He (Rodriguez) was ghting secrecy within his own family, Edwards told the jurors prior to the acquittal. Assistant State Attorney Amanda Gambert, the lead prosecutor on the case, declined to comment Friday. Rodriguez could have faced life in prison if he had been found guilty.Email: dwinchester@sun-herald.comVERDICTFROM PAGE 1 PUNTA GORDA In the wake of national unrest sparked by the fatal shootings of Trayvon Martin in Central Florida and Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. two unarmed, black teens local clergy, law enforcement and community members engaged in a dialogue on race. NAACP Branch 5093 president, the Rev. Louis C. Anderson Jr., led a wide-ranging discussion on the current state of police and citizen relations in Charlotte County during a public forum Thursday evening, which also was hosted by the local NAACP branch. The question-and-answer session, held at the New Operation Cooper Street Recreational Center in Punta Gorda, attracted about 60 attendees, with the goal of furthering unity and avoiding the violence that has broken out in other communities. It may not be happening in Charlotte County right now, but its in our backyard, Anderson said. Were here to build relationships. His message was also about promoting spirituality, accountability and community. Were partnering together to make sure Charlotte County is the No. 1 safest place to live in Florida, Anderson said. Of course, that is the primary mission of law enforcement. Punta Gorda Chief of Police Albert Butch Arenal told the crowd that in his seven years as chief, the department has undergone a major change from the past, operating more as a business today. And this includes working with the community. Trust plus communication equals a solution to any problem, he said. But audience members said this trust must be earned. Citing various instances in which local police ofcers questioned and detained innocent bystanders in the black community, residents sought assurances their rights are being upheld. DUI checkpoints, stop-andfrisk laws and unwarranted traf c stops not only erode public condence in law enforcement, they said, but also violate search and seizure protections. Chief Arenal acknowledged that he too has wrestled with contemporary issues facing law enforcement, such as the militarization of police, personal privacy and civil liberties. He also addressed the hot-button issue of proling, admitting this screening method is a useful tool in combating terrorism and criminal activity on the streets. We absolutely prole every day, Arenal said. The problem is when you racially prole. Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Prummell also was on hand, saying his agency is changing as well, focusing more on community policing. This has led to his ofcers being more involved in the neighborhoods and the people who live there. We blend very well with our community, Prummell said. But he also acknowledged there is more work to be done to build two-way bridges between law enforcement and the community they serve. We have to trust one another, Prummell said. Weve got to work together to make our neighborhoods not just a safer place, but a better place.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comPolice, community address race relationsBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITER | COMMUNITY | NEWS BRIEFSAll the pasta you can eatEnjoy a variety of pasta delights from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday in the Conference Center at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County, 2280 Aaron St., Port Charlotte.

Rick Scott has asked voters to judge him on his handling of the states economy and his ability to bring jobs to the Sunshine State. But in an election campaign with Democrat Charlie Crist that has featured caustic political ads and a debate highlighted by a tiff over a fan, theres been little discussion of Scotts management of the $70 billion-plus enterprise that is state government. Nor is there much mention of the steady stream of problems and scandals in the agencies directly under Scotts command. During Scotts term to date, the agencies that report to him have been accused of covering up the suspicious death of prison inmates, mishandling the deaths of children, bungling the launch of the system that aids the unemployed, and skirting the states public records law. Even now, more than 80 cases in which prison inmates died of non-natural causes are still being investigated. Scott has said very little about the ongoing controversies, stating either some are false, or that the people he puts in top positions were doing the right thing to deal with ongoing problems. He never says that he mishandled, or misjudged anyone. Scotts aides insist he is a taskmaster and keeps tight control over items under his control, even if he doesnt comment publicly. Scotts response has been similar to the way he responded to allegations of Medicare fraud at HCA/ Columbia, the massive chain of hospitals that the Republican incumbent once ran. Scott was forced out amid a federal investigation that resulted in a then-record $1.7 billion ne. He has repeatedly said he was unaware of the problems going on underneath him and said he probably should have hired more auditors. Yet he maintained on a recent televised Gov. Scott distances self from scandalsBy GARY FINEOUT ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER CRIST SCOTTSCOTT | 4 JOHANNESBURG The head of Africas continental body did not get to an Ebolahit country until last week months after alarm bells rst rang and nearly 5,000 deaths later. Pledges to deploy 2,000 African health workers have remained largely that promises. No African countries are on the United Nations list of contributors to ght the epidemic. The E-word did not even gure on the agenda of a session on peace and security at the Pan-African Parliament in South Africa last week more than a month after the U.N. Security Council declared the Ebola outbreak a threat to international peace and security. Angry legislators from Sierra Leone and Liberia got up to protest. They said as far as they are concerned, nobody wants to talk about Ebola, said Jeggan Grey-Johnson, a governance expert who watched the session. They said countries like Liberia feel totally abandoned by the rest of Africa and shut off from the rest of the continent, he told The Associated Press. With few exceptions, African governments and institutions are offering only marginal support as the continent faces its most deadly threat in years, once again depending on the international community to save them.

Page 2 WIRE The Sun /Saturday, November 1, 2014 NATIONAL/WORLD NEWS | NATIONWill you remember to set your clocks back?WASHINGTON (AP) Most people in the United States are getting an extra hour of sleep this weekend, thanks to the annual shift back to standard time. Ofcially, the change comes at 2 a.m. Sunday, but most people usually set their clocks back before heading to bed Saturday night. Residents of Hawaii, most of Arizona and some U.S. territories dont have to change; Daylight Saving Time is not observed there. Public safety ofcials say this is also a good time to put a new battery in the smoke alarm, no matter where you live. Daylight Saving Time returns at 2 a.m. local time the second Sunday in March March 8, 2015.Medicare paid for meds after patients were deadWASHINGTON (AP) Call it drugs for the departed: A quirky bureaucratic rule led Medicares prescription drug program to pay for costly medications even after the patients were dead. That head-scratching policy is now getting a second look. A report released Friday by the Health and Human Services Departments inspector general said the Medicare rule allows payment for prescriptions lled up to 32 days after a patients death at odds with the programs basic principles, not to mention common sense. Drugs for deceased beneciaries are clearly not medically indicated, which is a requirement for (Medicare) coverage, the IG report said. It urged immediate changes to eliminate or restrict the payment policy. Medicare said its working on a x. Investigators examined claims from 2012 for a tiny sliver of Medicare drugs medications to treat HIV, the virus that causes AIDS and then cross-referenced them with death records. They found that the program paid for drugs for 158 beneciaries after they were already dead. The cost to taxpayers: $292,381, an average of $1,850 for each beneciary.Spending down 0.2 percent in SeptemberWASHINGTON (AP) U.S. consumer cut spending in September for the rst time in eight months, as incomes grew at the slowest pace this year. The gures under score nagging economic soft spots that are expected to ease in the coming months. Consumer spending slipped 0.2 percent in September, the Commerce Department reported Friday, the weakest performance since an identical decline in January. Income edged up 0.2 percent in September in the smallest monthly gain since a at reading last December. Shoppers appeared to take a breather after a big spending spree in August, which lifted consumer spending 0.5 percent. Economists say Septembers downturn shouldnt last, especially amid a strengthening job market and a growing economy.Space shuttles, crash risk dwarfs airliner riskWASHINGTON (Bloomberg) If U.S. air lines had the same failure rate as the now-retired space shuttles, thered be 272 fatal crashes a day. As the investigation begins into the unmanned Orbital Sciences Corp. rocket that blew up seconds after liftoff this week, the history of space travel suggests such failures are neither rare nor unexpected. You have so much energy required to get out of the earths gravity eld, youre always essentially sitting on a bomb, John Hansman, a professor of aeronautics and astronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said in an interview. Youre basically trying to have the bomb go off in a controlled way. Not only are rockets packed with explosive fuel, they are also com plex machines made up of thousands of moving parts that can fail spectacularly over even a modest hiccup. Trick-or-treating back on after manhunt endsMOUNTAINHOME, Pa. (AP) Trick-ortreating was back on Friday in a northeastern Pennsylvania town that spent the last seven weeks under siege as hundreds of law enforcement ofcers searched for the survivalist accused of killing a state trooper.

The ofcer was sitting in a marked police car when the man used the ax to shatter the drivers side window, said Police Chief Cathy Lanier, who described the attack as an ambush. Lanier stressed that police had no evidence linking the attack to any broader plot or to last weeks attack of a group of New York City police ofcers by a hatchet-wielding man, which New Yorks police commissioner called an act of terrorism. Lanier said police werent ruling out that possibility. A lot of these radical organizations, terrorist organizations are very vocal about targeting first responders. Its no secret. Its not new. But it certainly has ramped up, Lanier said. Were on extremely high alert. | WORLDUN: Growing number of foreigners in terror groupsUNITED NATIONS (AP) A new United Nations report says the world faces a challenge of foreign ghters in terror groups on an unprecedented scale, with about 15,000 in Syria and Iraq alone. The report by a panel of experts monitoring al-Qaida and the Taliban, obtained Friday by The Associated Press, has been submitted to the U.N. Security Council. Numbers since 2010 are now many times the size of the cumulative numbers of foreign terrorist ghters between 1990 and 2010 and are growing, the report says. The panel was set up to support the councils al-Qaida sanctions committee. The panel says ghters from more than 80 countries working with al-Qaida associates in Syria and Iraq form the core of a new diaspora that may seed the threat for years to come, and that domestic terrorism could rise as ghters return to their home countries.Liberia opens 1 of largest Ebola care centersMONROVIA, Liberia (AP) Remembering those who have died in the worlds deadliest Ebola outbreak, Liberias president opened one of the countrys largest Ebola treatment centers in Monrovia on Friday amid hopes that the disease is nally on the decline in this West African country. American and U.N. ofcials as well as Cuban doctors were among the crowd as President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf opened the treatment center, which is set up to hold 200 patients and can eventually treat as many as 300.

Former ofcers have been gunned down in their homes, rounded up and shot in groups or killed in public squares as an example to others in recent weeks, particularly in the northern city of Mosul, the largest city in the swath of territory bridging Iraq and neighboring Syria that the militant group controls.

Prattville Police spokeswoman Paula Barlow says the pooch named Bo followed his fleeing master, who was being pursued by officers. When the dog stopped and wagged his tail in tall grass, she says, officers found and arrested Edwin Henderson. Barlow says the chase began when two drug officers arrived Wednesday with a search warrant and Henderson took off running. After an investigator pointed at Henderson and told the dog go get him, thats what Bo did. Barlow says Henderson is charged with failure to obey police, manufacturing a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. ODD NEWS Mans dog helps police bust him on drug charge With the wisdom of hindsight, our responses at all levels continental, global and national were slow, and often knee-jerk reactions that did not always help, she said. She is a medical doctor from South Africa, where mining magnate Patrice Motsepe Tuesday announced he has donated $1 million to the ght against Ebola in Guinea, where the outbreak started. Motsepes gift, the largest donation by far from any African individual, came after the World Food Program lashed out at Chinas billionaires, saying their contributions lagged behind their companies huge economic interests in the mineral-rich region. Motsepes ofce said his company has no interests in any of the countries where Ebola is raging out of control Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. Chinas government has sent many health workers and given more than $8 million with a promise of $6 million more to the U.N. Ebola fund. Ebola is rst and foremost our problem, the president of the African Development Bank, Donald Kaberuka, told a business forum in Brussels this month. Before relying on inter national aid, we must rst encourage Africans to take action. The African Development Bank is the second largest institutional contributor to the U.N. fund to ght Ebola, second only to the World Bank, having given $45.4 million and promised another $17.4 million. In addition it has given loans and grants individually to the most affected countries. By contrast, the African Union has made an uncommitted pledge of just $700,000. Africas equivalent of the Organization of America States, it is the body many believe should have taken the lead from the start. No nger has been pointed at the Africans, even as rich countries have blamed each other for delays in responding to the crisis and the lack of nancing. WHO chief Margaret Chan has said that governments have the rst responsibility for taking care of their citizens, including in West Africa. The WHO identied the rst Ebola case in Guinea on March 21; on March 30 the virus crossed the bor der into Liberia; Sierra Leone reported its rst two cases on May 30. On June 20, with some 330 recorded deaths, Doctors Without Borders warned that the outbreak was totally out of control. Yet it was only on Sept. 20 that the rst team of 30 military and civilian volunteers were deployed by a newly designated African Union Support to the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa. Most costs for that mission are being paid by the U.S. and other governments.EBOLAFROM PAGE 1 AP FILE PHOTOIn this Sept. 23 photo, Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, chairperson of the African Union Commission, speaks at United Nations headquarters in New York. debate that he had taken responsibility for what happened. Crist, during his 2007-11 term as governor, had a reputation of leaving details to key lieutenants and not taking a keen interest in policy issues. Melissa Sellers, a former top aide to Scott who now manages his campaign, said Scott shows leadership because he is not passing the buck and blaming others. She contrasted it with Crist, who has blamed job losses while he was governor on the global recession. Without naming any one, Sellers also asserted Scott has held people accountable since taking ofce in January 2011, but hasnt made some of his tough decisions public. The governor leads and manages by setting high expectations for everyone in the administration and holding them accountable to make sure results are achieved, Sellers said in an email response to questions. If your question is is the governor perfect? Or is everything that has ever been done in his administration perfect? Of course not. When a scandal breaks, Scott is often cryptic on whether he took action or delegated it to staff. Several agency heads, as well as two of his chiefs of staff, have departed amid bad publicity while Scott has been in ofce. There have been four permanent education commissioners during his four years though one left because he was a holdover from the Crist era. Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll abruptly resigned in March 2013 after state investigators questioned her about work she did with a veterans charity accused of running an illegal gambling operation. Carroll, who worked for the company before she ran with Scott, was never accused of any wrongdoing. Documents obtained by The Associated Press show she was questioned about failing to report money she earned from Allied Veterans of the World. Scott never said that he asked Carroll to resign, although she later publicly said the request came from him. Steve MacNamara, who served as Scotts chief of staff for roughly a year, maintained it was Scott who made key decisions. Some administration insiders at the time insisted that some people were forced out due to clashes with MacNamara. He was a quick study and liked to meet with his department heads faceto-face, MacNamara said in an email. He was good at identifying problems and issues and tasking department heads to go out and do the right thing. He had plenty of ideas. He loves being a manager and solving problems. Notwithstanding what was written in the press at the time, I was more of a trafc cop making sure that things got accomplished that he had directed his department heads to accomplish.SCOTTFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTOGov.

When the lights go on you can see it from outer space, said Thomas, 60, a self-described kid at heart who began decorating his lawn 20 years ago when his children were small. He has plenty of company if not at the same scale. About half of consumers plan to decorate their home or yard each year and national spending on Halloween in 2014 is expected to hit a near-record at $7.4 billion, a National Retail Federation survey found. Im the only freak whos doing all this, said Thomas, gesturing at a forest of gigantic ghouls, vampires, gravestones, pumpkins, corpses, wraiths and zombies. Thomas and his former neighbor, civil engineer Steve Jandick, 25, spend every September setting up the display and getting ready for thousands of visitors. Thomas, head of the arts and humanities department at a nearby community college, is also taking donations for GiGis Playhouse, which serves children and adults with Down syndrome. His good-humored neighbors direct the snarl of trafc and donate candy for Halloween night. Last year volunteers handed out 500 bags of sweets to swarms of trick-or-treaters. Give me your phone, I want to take a picture, one excited child on the tour said, tugging at the sleeve of his grandfather, 49-year-old Garret Tylka in Thomas yard. Tylka, a software engineer, said he likes it that enthusiasm over Christmas displays has extended to Halloween. Its all for the kids, said Tylka, whose family has taken Wehrlis Christmas tour. The Conan Doyle Road display is do-ityourself, but homeowners also can turn to professionals. Derek Norwood, owner of Holiday Creations Pro, got his rst Halloween order nine years ago and this year installed about 40 big Halloween light displays blinking BOO signs, purple bats hanging from the eaves in the Chicago area. Norwood charges rst-time customers on average $2,500 for products and installation and returning customers some $800 to set up their displays. After Halloween, a quick swap gets a customer ready for Christmas, he said. I design it to be red and purple for Halloween, then put up red and white for Christmas, he said. I take the bats down and put the wreaths up. Of course, conspicuous Halloween spending strikes some as misplaced. Retired nurse Carole Bogaard of Oak Lawn wrote to the Chicago Tribune to appoint herself Halloween Grinch. I know the kids get a kick out of it, but to me its over the top. There are so many other places that money can be spent, Bogaard told Reuters.CREEPYFROM PAGE 1 Mojave and expected to arrive Saturday, as were investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board. Space is hard, and today was a tough day, Virgin Galactic CEO President George Whitesides said. The future rests in many ways, on hard, hard days like this. The accident occurred just as it seemed space ights were near, after a period of development that lasted far longer than hundreds of prospective passengers had expected. When Virgin Group licensed the technology from Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, who funded about $26 million for SpaceShipOne, Branson envisioned operating ights by 2007. In inter views last month, he talked about the rst ight being next spring with his son. Its a real setback to the idea that lots of people are going to be taking joyrides into the fringes of outer space any time soon, said John Logsdon, retired space policy director at George Washington University. There were a lot of people who believed that the technology to carry people is safely at hand. Fridays ight marked the 55th for SpaceShipTwo, which was intended to be the rst of a line of craft. But this was only the fourth ight to be powered by a rocket. During the other ights, the craft was either not released from its mother ship or it functioned as a glider. SpaceShipTwo was designed to provide a suborbital thrill ride into space before returning to Earth as a glider. At 60 feet long, it featured two large windows for each of up to six passengers, one on the side and one overhead. The cause of the accident was not immediately known. One difference on this ight was the type of fuel being used. In May, Virgin Galactic announced that SpaceShipTwo would switch to a polymidebased fuel a type of thermoplastic. It had been fueled with a type of rubber called HTPB. Scaled Composites, the company that is building the spaceship for Virgin Galactic, had extensively tested the new fuel for mulation on the ground, President Kevin Mickey said. He said the rocket motor conguration had not changed on this ight and characterized the new fuel as a small nuance to the design.ROCKETFROM PAGE 1 MILFORD, Pa. (Philadelphia Inquirer) Rot in hell.

As 150 or so looked on Friday, the man who had eluded more than 1,000 law enforcement ofcers for almost seven weeks in the Poconos woods was marched to the rear of the 19th century building and taken to the Pike County Correctional Facility, where he was being held without bail. The intensive manhunt that began Sept. 12 after a shooting ambush in which a state police ofcer was killed and another seriously wounded nally ended Thursday night, when Frein surrendered in an open eld near an abandoned airport hangar and the now-closed Birchwood Resort. Frein, who was unarmed but had high-powered weaponry nearby, had spent substantial time in the hangar, said Sam Rabadi, special agent in charge of the Philadelphia ofce of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Rabadi said evidence at the scene, including previously undiscovered writings, made investigators all but certain they had the right man. He was fully expecting to be caught, Rabadi added, noting that Frein surrendered without a struggle. The U.S. marshals who captured Frein said he had a defeated look on his face when they took him into custody, according to The Associated Press. A three-man team had spotted Frein and sneaked up on him, taking him by surprise. Scott Malkowski, who helped make the arrest, told AP that Frein made no attempt to ee and didnt put up a ght. He had nowhere to go. There is nothing he couldve done, Malkowski told AP, adding: From what I saw, he felt defeated because wed won. Wed defeated him. The marshals said Frein suffered facial injuries while they had him down on the pavement.Frein was fully expecting to be caught, investigator says

Please tell me what you think of Twitter stock. Id buy 200 shares to make some money. FE, Destin, Fla. Dear FE: Twitter is among the growing number of bootless/ useless companies selling social access for the lonely and encouraging their personal comments on the Internet in real time. Via this model, Twitter wants advertisers to use its site, on a pay-for-per formance basis, to peddle merchandise. Twitters average monthly active users totaled 298 million by the end of September, a 27 percent year-over-year increase. And mobile monthly active users over the same time frame grew to 226 million, a 31 percent increase. The stock came public in November 2013 at $26, quickly ran up to $74 and then, six months later, went back to $30. Twitter heads are lonely-heart human beings who use Twitter (TWTR-$48.28) as a global platform site for public self-expression to validate themselves. Because these evolving life-forms seem to reproduce faster than the general population, the number of Twitter Heads should continue to expand at a rapid pace. This translates to impressive user growth, making TWTR an attractive platform for advertisers. Certainly, undisputed proof is TWTRs third-quar ter revenue of $351 million, which is twice last years comparable quarter. This year, TWTR should post $1.3 billion in advertising revenues. But because Twits (the folks who manage Twitter) cant gure out why revenue must exceed expenditures, TWTR will post a loss of $550 million for 2014. And though Wall Street believes revenues will zoom by 75 percent in 2015, to $2 billion, the Twits expect to post losses of about $320 million next year. This companys product has no redeeming value. It cant be saved or consumed. It doesnt create wealth, reduce labor costs or make one more efcient. Even though Twitter Heads are unique folk who have shorter brain stems and are only able to enjoy the company of other Twitter Heads, many professionals believe that TWTR could generate revenues of $4 billion by 2017 and produce earnings of 50 to 60 cents a share. However, even if these guys are right (Morningstar, Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, Deutsche Bank and Bank of America), TWTR is trading at 93 times future earnings. Thats dangerously high. Also dangerous is the fact that TWTR trades at a hugely rich price-sales ratio, exceeding 25-to-1. TWTR at $48 or even $32 is a fools bet. There are nearly 700 million shares outstanding, so TWTRs market cap is about $33 billion. From my catbird seat, that value is absurd. At your age and stage, you cant afford the risks. Email Malcolm Berko at heads Malcolm Berko Q: I notice you refer to agents as Realtors. Is there a difference between the two? A: Yes. But before explaining the differences, heres why I dont use the term agent. In Florida and many other states, a person who is licensed by the state to sell real estate does not receive the title of real estate agent. Thats a street term. An applicant who successfully completes the education and state testing necessary to sell real estate is licensed as a real estate sales associate. After two years of experience working under a real estate broker, a sales associate can complete additional education and testing to be licensed as a real estate broker. A broker can work independently under his own brokerage, and hire sales associates to work under him. A broker can instead work under another broker, in which case she becomes a broker associate. To further complicate matters, real estate associates and brokers can maintain different relationships with different customers. By default, Florida law assumes the associate or broker is operating as a transaction broker. But they may also transition to a client/ agent relationship which confers more complicated legal implications for both parties. Arbitrarily referring to a real estate professional as an agent, or the customer as a client, infers there are legal obligations and duciary responsibilities that by default, do not exist. As a practical matter, referring to real estate professionals as sales associates or brokers does not make for easy reading. Yet using the street term agent is misleading. Fortunately, there is a street term for licensed real estate professionals that applies to most Realtors. A Realtor is a real estate professional who is a member of the National Association of Realtors and subscribes to its strict code of ethics. The majority of real estate professionals in our area are Realtors. I use this term because it applies to most real estate professionals in our area, and is widely understood by the public to mean a real estate professional. As stated in the denition, the main difference between Realtors and nonRealtors is that Realtors subscribe to a much stricter code of ethics than that required by law. Here are some standards set forth by the code of ethics. The primary responsibility of the Realtor is to promote and protect the customers interests. However, it also dictates that Realtors treat all parties to a transaction with honesty and fairness, not just their own customers. The spirit of this 101-year-old code is much the same as the Golden Rule. The code also addresses how Realtors treat other Realtors. This sets a strong foundation for trust and cooperation between Realtors. Realtors are prohibited, for example, from interfering between other Realtors and their customers. For example, if Realtor Bob has a listing, Realtor Tom may not initiate direct contact with that homeowner for the purpose of stealing the listing. When referring to other Realtors, Realtors must be truthful and objective. Realtors who violate the code are subject to disciplinary proceedings. Fortunately, the compliance rate to the code is very high. Thats a win-win for everyone.

Stocks started the month modestly below a record high, only to cascade to their worst slump in two years. But after irting with a correction, or a 10 percent drop, the U.S. market rebounded and closed at all-time highs on the last day of the month. All told, U.S. stocks ended October solidly higher, up 2.3 percent. The Dow Jones industrial average capped the rally by rising 195.10 points, or 1.1 percent, to end at 17,390.52 on Friday. The Standard & Poors 500 rose 23.40 points, or 1.2 percent, to 2,018.05 and the Nasdaq composite added 64.60 points, or 1.4 percent, to 4,630.74. Both the Dow and the S&P 500 closed at record highs. Its a remarkable turn given the months volatility, which at times approached levels from the 2008 nancial crisis. Then again, the month has an unfortunate history for unsettling moves, with the stock market crashes of 1929 and 1987 both happening in October. This October, the markets seesaw path was driven by fears that Europes economy was slipping back into a recession, worries about plunging oil prices and concerns of possible weakness in the U.S. economy. Oh, and dont forget Ebola. Those anxi eties sent the market, for the most part, straight down for two weeks. The nadir came on Oct. 15, when the S&P 500 came within a hairsbreadth of going into a correction. Investors had suspected such a drop. The last one occurred in late 2011, and historically corrections happen every 18 months or so.Stocks cap wild month with rally

Retail gasoline prices will average less than $3 a gallon Friday, Heathrow, Fla.-based motoring group AAA said in a statement. Thats down from this years peak of $3.696 in April, and the rst time the average has dipped below $3 since December 2010. Sliding prices are seen saving the typical consumer $500 a year and are coming just in time to boost spending during the holiday shopping season, according to analysts including IHS Inc. The bonus at the pumps represents the biggest benefit to consumers to date from a record boom in domestic oil production that has contributed to a global crude glut and helped bring down international prices. Consumers are experiencing sticker delight as gas prices unexpectedly drop below $3 in much of the country, said Bob Darbelnet, AAAs chief executive ofcer based in Heathrow. Lower gas prices are a boon to the economy just in time for holiday travel and shopping. U.S. benchmark West Texas Intermediate oil tumbled $14.21 a barrel in the three months ended Sept. 30, the biggest quarterly decline since 2012, and on Oct. 27 slipped below $80 to the lowest level in 28 months. North Sea Brent crude, the global benchmark, slid $17.69 a barrel in the same quarter to $94.67 and traded at $85.25 Friday morning. Prices have fallen with U.S. oil output at the highest level since 1983 and the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries producing the most in more than a year. At the same time, the Paris-based International Energy Agency lowered its estimate for global demand growth for this year and next in an Oct. 14 report. For every penny that the national average falls, more than one billion dollars per year in additional consumer spending is estimated to be freed up, Michael Green, an AAA spokesman in Washington, said on the groups website Oct. 20. U.S. reners are increasing fuel production to take advantage of cheaper crude costs. The nations plants processed 15.1 million barrels a day of crude in the week ended Oct. 24, the most for this time of year since 2006, Energy Information Administration data show.Average gasoline drops below $3 for first time | NATIONWalmart ups ante on holiday shoppingNEW YORK (AP) Walmart is doing whatever it takes to rope in holiday shoppers however they want to buy. For the rst time, Walmart Stores Inc. is offering free shipping on what it considers the seasons top 100 hottest gifts, from board games to items related to Disneys hit lm Frozen items, starting Saturday. The move comes as rival Target Corp. began offering free shipping on all items, a program that started late October and will last through Dec. 20. Walmart is also planning to offer discounts, or what it refers to as rollbacks, on more than 20,000 items on a broad range of products, from groceries to TVs, starting Saturday. The timing is similar to last year, but the discounter said the assortment is broader. Its also pulling forward by nearly a month, 15 24-hour online deals originally reserved for the Thanksgiving weekend and so-called Cyber Monday.Inmate freed in Illinois caseCHICAGO (AP) A prisoner whose confession helped free a death row inmate in a case that was instrumental to ending capital punishment in Illinois was released Thursday after he recanted, and a prosecutor said there was powerful evidence that the other man was responsible. Alstory Simons confession gained international attention in 1999, largely because of an investigation by a journalism professor and a team of students from Northwestern University that helped secure Anthony Porters release just days before he was to be executed. He had spent 16 years on death row for slayings he and his supporters maintained he did not commit. 50472083 Tours of Sun Newspaper Office and Plant 10 AM NOON S ee how your award-winning newspaper operates!

PETERSBURG The members of the Charlotte High School boys swimming and diving team all had the same thing on their minds as they hoisted the Region 3A-3 championship trophy Friday afternoon: This ones for A.J., they shouted, eliciting additional yells from the parents and coaches gathered around them. Hours earlier, senior A.J. Nelson had to be removed from the North Shore Aquatic Center in St. Petersburg on a stretcher. The Tarpons swimmer had helped his team finish second in the 200-yard medley relay, but he injured his knee while stretching for his 100 breaststroke race, sending him to the hospital and perhaps ending his Tarpons career.

Maddon, 60, who led underdog Tampa Bay to four playoff berths and the 2008 American League pennant in nine seasons, replaces Rick Renteria, who had two years left on his contract after completing a 73-89 season with a stripped-down roster lled by inexperienced marquee talent. Maddon will be introduced Monday at a news conference at the Cubby Bear since Wrigley Field is undergoing renovations. The Cubs paved the way for Maddon by announcing Friday they had red Renteria. Renteria, who as recently as three weeks ago was told he was returning for his second season, was offered a variety of positions within the organization but has the freedom to explore opportunities elsewhere. Last Thursday, we learned that Joe Maddon who may be as well suited as anyone in the industry to manage the challenges that lie ahead of us had become MLB: ChicagoMADDON | 3 SUN PHOTO BY TOM ONEILLCharlotte running back Elijah Mack scores against Port Charlotte during the second quarter Friday at Port Charlotte High School. PORT CHARLOTTE Charlotte High School is heading back to the playoffs. The Tarpons jumped to a 20-0 lead on Friday against Port Charlotte and held off a late charge to win 26-14 and earn the runner-up spot in District 7A-11 and the playoff berth that comes with it. Charlotte took advantage of several Port Charlotte errors early on to build its big lead. The Pirates fumbled twice, allowing the Tarpons to start drives at the 18 and 27 yard lines, and used a long kick return by Trevor Laurent to start another drive at the 34. Nate ODonnell got the scoring started with a 27-yard eld goal midway through the rst quarter, and his teammates broke the game open as soon as the second quarter started. Elijah Mack plowed in for a 3-yard touchdown run on the second play of the quarter, and pushed his way for a 1-yard touchdown run ve minutes later. It was great, we seemed to be in charge of the game, we had great drives, kept their defense on the Tarpons run to playoffsBy ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITER PREP FOOTBALL: Charlotte 26, Port Charlotte 14Charlotte builds 20-point lead and holds off rivals ONLINEFRIDAY NIGHT RECAPS See a recap of Friday nights games, including game stats, at PREP SCORES See a complete list of Friday nights state prep football scores at CAST YOUR VOTE Pick the Player of the Week at SunCoastSports.

There was no better place for it than Pirates Cove, where Charlotte defeated Port Charlotte 26-14 on Friday night. It was there two years previous the Pirates stunned the Tarpons, handing them their rst shutout loss since 2004. It also served notice that Port Charlotte was to be taken seriously, as they were again Friday night. The Port Charlotte players huddled around Pirates coach Jordan Ingman didnt care about that ancient history. The sting from this loss was still too fresh. Junior fullback Brennan Norus face was a painting of heartbreak, so was that of senior quarterback Christian Coffelletto.

The Manta Rays (6-3, 4-2 District 5A14) clinched its third consecutive winning season with just one game left. Lemon Bay lost its chance of playing in a tiebreaker game to decide the second district playoff berth when Dunbar fell to North Fort Myers, 38-6, Thursday and Cape Coral defeated Mariner 42-7 Friday. Sure, we might have been a little down when it looked like we wouldnt make the playoffs, Lemon Bay coach D.J. Ogilvie said. But the kids just shook it off and came out here tonight and took care of business. This (three straight winning seasons) is a school record. And a lot of players had a hand in gaining that winning season, not the least was senior Brian McGill.

Traige McClary joined the Warner University football team as a quarterback. About three games into the season, the freshman out of Port Charlotte High School said he was moved to wide receiver because of an abundance of players vying for the quarterback spot. The coach gured I should play another position, said McClary, who entered the program at 175 pounds and weighs 190 now. Im still learning the formations. He had his rst two receptions during a loss Oct. 18 to Alderson Broaddus University. The rst was a 20-yard reception on a thirddown play. I crossed over the middle for the catch, he said. I was supposed to get blindsided. As he (the defender) ran into me, he fell and I didnt. McClary added an 83-yard touchdown with less than three minutes remaining, according to the Warner online site. The safety came down and tried to hit me. I was already in the end zone, said McClary, nominated for the Sun Conference offensive player of the week because of his per formance. He started at wide receiver in Warners last game but did not have any catches. Most of the time we were running the ball, said McClary, who also has been playing special teams since moving to receiver. Warner has a bye this weekend before returning to action on Nov. 8 against Edward Waters College. MORE FOOTBALLTyler Dean ranks fourth in sacks among Great Plains Athletic Conference players.

The Wildcats changed the script this season: This year, the fabulous freshmen will be surrounded by other former McDonalds AllAmericans who played for the NCAA title just seven months ago a team so deep and talented that coach John Calipari is considering a platoon system. Kentucky was the runaway No. 1 in The Associated Press preseason Top 25 released Friday, becoming the fourth program to earn the honor in consecutive seasons. Its something for our kids to live up to, Calipari said. At the end of the day, youve got to play the games and gure it out. Kentucky earned 52 rst-place votes from the 65-member panel in landing its fourth preseason No. 1. The Wildcats also were No. 1 in 199596, when they won the national championship, and in 1980-81. Kentucky joins UCLA (1966-60, 1971-74), UNLV (1990-91) and North Carolina (2008-09) to be named No. 1 consecutive seasons since the AP preseason poll started in 1961-62. Arizona is ranked No. 2 and received ve rstplace votes after adding a strong recruiting class to a team that came within seconds of reaching the Final Four last season. Wisconsin, which returns most of last seasons Final Four team, has its highest preseason ranking ever at No. 3. The Badgers received eight rst-place votes, but are 35 points behind Arizona in the poll. No. 4 Duke added a strong recruiting class headed by Jahlil Okafor and is ranked for the 137th straight week.

The Sun /Saturday, November 1, 2014 SP Page 3 a free agent, Theo Epstein, Cubs President of Baseball Operations, said in a statement. We conrmed the news with Major League Baseball, and it became public knowledge the next day. We saw it as a unique opportunity and faced a clear dilemma: be loyal to Rick or be loyal to the organization. In this business of trying to win a world championship for the rst time in 107 years, the organization has priority over any one individual. We decided to pursue Joe. While there was no clear playbook for how to handle this type of situ ation, we knew we had to be transparent with Rick before engaging with Joe. (General manager) Jed Hoyer ew to San Diego last Friday and told Rick in person of our intention to talk to Joe about the managerial job. Subsequently, Jed and I provided updates to Rick via telephone and today informed him that we will indeed make a change. The marriage of Maddon, who became a free agent on Oct. 24 after exercising an opt-out clause in his Rays contract, and the Cubs occurs at an important time for both parties. Maddon, who becomes the 54th manager in Cubs history, inherits a team seeking to challenge for a National League Central title after three consecutive seasons of midseason trades to acquire younger talent under President Theo Epsteins long-term mission of sustained success. That wasnt the case with the Rays, who nished with a 77-85 record that snapped a streak of six consecutive winning seasons under Maddon. Payroll limitations and dank Tropicana Field also challenged Maddon, who saw the likes of B.J. Upton, Carl Crawford and David Price depart via free agency or trade. The hiring of Maddon accelerates the expectations for the Cubs, who announced shortly after the season that Renteria would return for his second season as manager. As recently as Sept. 30 at an end-of-the-season news conference, Epstein praised Renteria, 52, for his handling of youngsters such as rst baseman Anthony Rizzo and shortstop Starlin Castro, who each rebounded from subpar 2013 seasons to earn NL All-Star berth and foster a positive atmosphere. The Cubs were expected to take a hit in some baseball circles for abandoning Renteria, who received his rst major league managerial position after 15 seasons in the minors and with the Padres as a coach. But the opportunity to hire Maddon, who is represented by Chicago-based agent Alan Nero, was too tempting to pass up especially given that the Cubs intend to make a splash in the free-agent market by pursuing impact pitchers, a left-handed hitting outelder and perhaps a catcher. With respect to Rick, he was a great man and a great manager, said Cubs outelder Justin Ruggiano, who played for Maddon with the Rays in 2007-08 and 2011. I really enjoyed Rick last year. Having played for Joe, I know what hes capable of doing. Its a very exciting future with Joe running the ship. Epstein interviewed Maddon for the vacant managerial position with the Red Sox that went to Terry Francona before the 2004 season. Maddon has relished challenges dating to the end of his minor league playing days, when he earned $300 a month while driving 50 miles from Salinas, Calif., to Santa Clara in the Class-A California League for the sole purpose of catching a knuckleball pitcher. There was part of that season I was actually living in a big closet, Maddon told the Tribune in 2008 of his living arrangement. Maddon has a lifetime 781-729 record with the Rays and Angels (with whom he compiled a 2724 record over parts of the 1996 and 1999 seasons on an interim basis).MADDONFROM PAGE 1 | QUICK HITSUNTAPABLE WINS BREEDERS DISTAFFARCADIA, Calif. (AP) Untapable polished an impressive year with a 114-length victory Friday in the Breeders Cup Distaff, with a pregnant Rosie Napravnik becoming the rst female jockey to win the $2 million race in its 31-year history. Napravnik stunned the crowd of 37,205 at Santa Anita and a national television audience by announcing she will retire Sunday. The 26-year-old jockey said she and husband Joe Sharp, who is a trainer, are starting a family and conrmed she is seven weeks pregnant. Untapable paid $5.20, $3.40 and $2.60 as the 8-5 favorite in the eld of 11. Dont Tell Sophia returned $4.60 and $3.40 and Iotapa paid $4. Goldencents successfully defended his title in the $1 million Dirt Mile.

Meanwhile, 10 more players became free agents, raising the total to 130, and up to 13 more could join them by Monday, depending on option decisions.

That matches the most in the NFL by any team in its last two games. Each guy, individually, has to have that mindset: We dont want to see our quarterback get hit, right tackle Demar Dotson said this week. That goes for running backs, tight ends, everybody blocking for that quarterback. Weve got to do a better job and keep working at it. Penalties remain an issue as well. Dotson has had three holding penalties, as has left tackle Anthony Collins, putting them among the teams most penalized players. The Bucs lost their original starting quarterback, Josh McCown, to a thumb injury in the third game, and protecting starter Mike Glennon has to be the lines rst priority. Our efforts and the way we have to approach it this week is that were not going to let the guys touch Mike, and thats how it has to be every week, center Evan Dietrich-Smith said. We havent gotten that done in the past two weeks and its reected in how were doing as a unit, which isnt very good. Were going to make sure that we get back on that track this week. Collins will likely miss the game with a foot injury, which could press backup Oniel Cousins into a huge role, another test for a line that has started the same ve players in all seven games. The Bucs offensive struggles, unable to consistently run the ball early in possessions, have set up third-and-long situations where defenses can anticipate passing downs and send pass-rushers accordingly. Sixteen of the Bucs 19 sacks allowed came on plays where the rst-down marker was 6 yards or farther away, including two third-andlong plays in Sundays loss to Minnesota. Thats where you nd out what an offensive linemans made of in pass protection, Dotson said. If its third-and-long and you know its passing, those defensive ends know its passing and everybody in the stands knows its passing, thats when you have to bull up and block your guy. Theres no scheme in that. Its just sitting back, man on man, and youve got to win. Coach Lovie Smith said success on the road starts with being able to run the ball, and the Cleveland Browns rank 30th in the NFL in rush defense, allow ing 143.4 yards per game. Take advantage of that, he says, and the Bucs could be a different team Sunday. They need to set the tone for us to run the football, Smith said of the offensive line. When you go on the road, one of the things you have to do is run the ball. We talk about being more physical and most of that involves the offensive line and getting into position for our running backs to run the football.Bucs want to draw a hard line on offenseBy GREG AUMANTAMPA BAY TIMES NFL: Tampa Bay BUCS AT BROWNSWHO: Tampa Bay (1-6) at Cleveland (4-3) WHEN: Sunday, 1 p.m. WHERE: FirstEnergy Stadium, Cleveland TV: FOX RADIO: 620 AM, 103.5 FM Griffin eager to get restartedASHBURN, Va. After more than six games on the sideline, Robert Griffin III is back as the quarterback of the Washington Redskins. Coach Jay Gruden said Griffin will start Sunday against Minnesota. Im real excited to get back out there, said Griffin, who dislocated his left ankle in the first quarter of the Week 2 victory over Jacksonville. Im going to lean on my guys to help me get through this game. If there comes a time when I have to carry the team Im willing to do that. Saints turn their season around: In a span of five days, the New Orleans Saints turned around a season that appeared to be running off of the rails after a fourth-quarter collapse in Detroit on Oct. 19. The Saints routed Green Bay on Sunday night and beat Carolina 28-10 on Thursday night on the road to take sole possession of first place in the NFC South heading into a 10-day break between games. Around the league: Coach Joe Philbin remained absent from the Miami Dolphins for the second day in a row because of a family matter, but hes expected to return before Sundays game against San Diego. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is questionable for Sundays game against Arizona after missing practice all week with a back injury. San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews returned to the practice field for the first time since spraining his right knee on Sept. 14 but will not play Sunday at Miami. Top overall pick Jadeveon Clowney is unlikely to play for the Houston Texans Sunday against Philadelphia because of an unspecified illness. Oakland Raiders safety Brandian Ross was fined $22,050 for his hit on Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan Cameron that gave Cameron at least his third concussion in three seasons.

The Sun /Saturday, November 1, 2014 Page 5 THE COUCH POTATOS PICKSNO. 10 TCU (6-1) AT NO. 20 WEST VIRGINIA (6-2) 3:30 p.m, ABC This should be the wildest, craziest game of the day. If West Virginia wins, it will also end with a five-alarm response from the fire department. The shocker is how the over-under bet is only 71.5 points? The teams average 87.3 points and more than 1,000 yards per game. TCU scored 82 points last week against Texas Tech. FLORIDA (3-3) VS. NO. 9 GEORGIA (6-1) 3:30 p.m., CBS No Todd Gurley? No problem, so far, as Georgia has flourished without its star tailback the last two games. Gurley will miss two more games for accepting money for autographs. Nick Chubb, Gurleys replacement, has 569 yards and five touchdowns. Georgia has won three straight in the cocktail party series after losing 18 of 21. NO. 4 AUBURN (6-1) AT NO. 7 MISSISSIPPI (7-1) 7 p.m., ESPN, 99.3 FM and 1250 AM This is the first of what could be several playoff elimination games involving schools from the mighty SEC West. The loser here might, heaven forbid, drop three or four spots in the polls. Auburn survived a 42-35 shootout last week against South Carolina. Ole Miss lost at Louisiana State. ARKANSAS (4-4) AT NO. 1 MISSISSIPPI ST. (7-0) 7:15 p.m., ESPNU Arkansas has lost 16 consecutive conference games but that will not stop SEC fans from calling this a quality Mississippi State win. The only real concern for Mississippi State is quarterback Dak Prescott, who spent time in a walking boot this week after injuring his right foot in last weeks win over Kentucky. Prescott is expected to play.COLLEGE FOOTBALL EXTRA WEEK 10 PLAYOFF WATCHThe first games after the release of the College Football Playoff rankings have a chance to reveal some new contenders. Games to watch if youre looking for playoff hopefuls outside the obvious: BIG 12 Oklahoma St. at Kansas St. (CFP 9) and Kansas at Baylor (CFP 13): The Wildcats are behind TCU (CFP 7) among Big 12 rivals. K-State still has its most of its pivotal Big 12 games ahead with Baylor, West Virginia and TCU. That loss to Auburn is good news, bad news. The good news is the Wildcats played a quality game against a high-level opponent. The bad news is if it comes down to K-State and Auburn for a spot, the Tigers hold a trump card. Baylor has one great win against TCU, and thats it. Still, Baylor has time and opportunity to bolster that resume. Both the Bears and Wildcats should roll Saturday. BIG TEN Illinois at Ohio State (CFP 16) and Purdue at Nebraska (CFP 15): Michigan State seems to be in the drivers seat in the Big Ten, but dont discount the Cornhuskers and Buckeyes. If either can run the table and finish 12-1 with conference title theyll be in the hunt. Ohio State has that loss to Virginia Tech weighing it down, but it gets Michigan State next week with a chance to help bury that performance. The Huskers lost at Michigan State and could draw a rematch in the Big Ten title game. Of course, games like these dont do much to enhance the cases for the best Big Ten teams. PAC-12 Arizona (CFP 12) at UCLA (CFP 22) and Utah (CFP 17) at Arizona St. (CFP 14): The Pac-12 is going to grind up playoff contenders, and its champion could easily emerge from this group of South Division rivals. The Utes can take control of the division with a victory in Tempe, especially if UCLA beats Arizona. But there is so much more to come. Utah hosts Oregon, the highest ranked Pac-12 team, next week, and eventually the Wildcats and Sun Devils will have to sort of the Territorial Cup. Heres the big question with the Pac-12: Can a two-loss champion from out West get into the playoff? Associated Press LOUISVILLE, Ky. As bad as Jameis Winston and second-ranked Florida State looked in the rst half against Louisville, the second half offered plenty of time to recover. More impressive than rallying from a 21-0 decit for a 42-31 victory was the poise displayed by the Heisman Trophy quarter back and his teammates. Winston overcame three interceptions with three second-half touchdown passes, including the 35-yard clincher to Freddie Stevenson with 2:11 remaining. I told them, Weve been here before, Winston said. Being down is nothing when youve got heart. Honestly, we play better when were down. We do anything to win. We dont enjoy being down. Not only did the Seminoles (8-0, 5-0 ACC) extend the nations longest winning streak to 24 games, but their national title hopes remain intact after appearing to be in tatters for the rst 28 min utes against the Cardinals (6-3, 4-3).Another FSU rally, another win COLLEGE FOOTBALL: No. 2 Florida StateBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SPOTLIGHT: FloridaHistory gives UF a chanceWEST PALM BEACH The Florida Gators have a chance today against Georgia. Period, not question mark. If you buy my modest premise, prepare to be laughed at by everyone you know, including small children, who may well believe all those colorful descriptions of Santa Claus but have lived long enough to understand that you just cant believe in Will Muschamp. Hes the coach, after all, who has lost consecutive homecoming games at Florida, and by a combined score of 76-30. Hes the man with the 15-14 career record against SEC opponents, reducing the Gators program from its jackpot past to the humble reliability of a coin ip. More than anything, Muschamp has developed into Floridas version of Ray Goff. Steve Spurrier used to call him Ray Goof when he thought nobody was listening and then, after a while, when he knew that everybody was. A career .574 winning percentage didnt win Goff much respect from anybody, really, especially when compared to Vince Dooley, the Georgia legend who preceded him. Muschamp, who followed Urban Meyer at Florida, is bumping along at .568. Here is the thing. The Florida-Georgia game is natures way of ushing all kinds of toxins out of soured systems and into the St. Johns River. It can be the one-day cure to all that ails a tortured fan base. It can be the moment when sophistication actually gets in the way of a coach, and caveman chaos has its way, like the time in 2007 when Georgias Mark Richt sent his entire team charging from the sidelines to the end zone to celebrate a touchdown. The Bulldogs got agged but, in time, the Gators got ogged 42-30. Goff won the FloridaGeorgia game once in seven tries, which proves it can be done. Ron Zook won it twice in three. No kidding. Now its Georgia fans who are praying that Muschamp will coach the Gators forever, the better to enhance their enjoyment of this series. Jacksonville is famous for its faceplants, however, with good teams losing to bad ones, and monumental shifts too crazy to comprehend. The rst shift went Floridas way last week when Muschamp chased Jeff Driskel from the huddle before anyone else got hurt. The second came this week when the NCAA ruled that Georgia running back Todd Gurley must sit out two more games for selling autographs. His replacement, freshman Nick Chubb, is almost as bullish but every little bit helps. How many other things must happen for Florida, 3-3 and fading, to pull off the upset? It may be simpler than it seems. First, freshman quar terback Treon Harris, in his rst start, must approximate the level of competence that Tyler Murphy reached last year in his own version of emergency duty. Its not that high of a bar to reach. Murphy went 13-for-29 passing for 174 yards and ripped off a couple of nice runs, including one for a touchdown, but most importantly he didnt turn it over, despite being sacked four times. That was enough to keep the Gators within three points of Georgia with 14:20 to play. Next, the Gators defense has to stop the Bulldogs running game from battering them to death. Georgia ran the nal eight minutes off the clock last year, keeping the ball for 15 plays and getting precisely the needed yardage on a couple of third-and-short dives by Gurley. Thats what killed the Florida comeback. Last, Muschamp must convince his guys theyre on Georgias level. Both teams were fortunate to edge Tennessee, for instance, plus the College Playoff committee sees so little in the Bulldogs 6-1 record that 10 teams are ranked ahead of them. Hey, youre laughing again. No need to be smug, or to lean solely on the two-touchdown Las Vegas edge. The Florida-Georgia game isnt played in Vegas. Its played on what feels like a carnival site, next to a river that oddly runs north. If Muschamp is to have his miracle, or at least a wild swing at one, why shouldnt it be there?By DAVID GEORGEPALM BEACH POSTTodays game could cure the ills for MuschampAP PHOTOToday could mark the last game Will Muschamp, who has never been on the winning side in the Florida-Georgia rivalry, paces the sidelines as Floridas coach. But history gives some hope for today. STATE PREVIEWSCENTRAL FLORIDA 52, 30 AT UCONN 0 Noon, Rentschler Field, East Hartford, Conn. TV: CBS Sports Network RADIO: No local affiliate LINE: UCF by 11 SERIES: UCF leads 1-0 STORYLINES: UCF and UConn are heading in different directions. The Knights have won five in a row after opening with two losses and are looking to break into the Top 25, while the Huskies are trying to avoid a six-game losing streak. UCF hasnt lost a conference game (11-0) since moving from Conference USA to the new league a year ago. The Knights are holding opponents to just over 305 yards and 19 points a game with the 10th-rated defense in the nation. UConn, meanwhile, is averaging just 276 yards of offense and 14 points per game. Thirty players on the two-deep are either freshmen or sophomores. NORTH CAROLINA 44, 22 AT MIAMI 2 12:30 p.m., Sun Life Stadium, Miami Gardens TV: ACC Network RADIO: No local affiliate LINE: Miami by 15 SERIES: North Carolina leads 9-8 STORYLINES: Miami is a two-touch down favorite, though history suggests this one could go down to the wire. Each of the last three meetings a 30-24 Miami win in 2011, an 18-14 North Carolina win in 2012 and the Hurricanes 27-23 comeback victory last year has been decided in the final minute. The Tar Heels lost four straight before posting back-to-back wins over Georgia Tech and Virginia, all the while continuing a year filled with defensive struggles. They gave up 318 points in 13 games last year. This year, theyve allowed 330 points already. With a win, Miami would assure itself of bowl eligibility. The Hurricanes havent won a postseason game since the end of the 2006 season, going 0-4 in bowls since. FLORIDA 2 VS. GEORGIA 4 3:30 p.m., EverBank Stadium, Jacksonville TV: CBS RADIO: 620 AM, 930 AM LINE: Georgia by 11 SERIES: Georgia lead 49-40-2 STORYLINES: Will Muschamp has been on the losing end of the Florida-Georgia series his entire career. He went 0-4 against the Gators as a defensive back for the Bulldogs in the 1990s, and hes winless in three games against Georgia as Floridas coach. His eighth try, without question, is the biggest of them all. Muschamp probably needs a victory to have any chance of saving his job. Bulldogs running back Todd Gurley will not play after the NCAA denied the appeal of his four-game suspension. Freshman Nick Chubb will make his third consec utive start. He has 346 yards rushing and three touchdowns. Freshman quarterback Treon Harris will make his first career start for the Gators. HOUSTON 2 AT SOUTH FLORIDA 2 4 p.m., Raymond James Stadium, Tampa TV: ESPN News RADIO: 98.7 FM, 1010 AM LINE: Houston by 9 SERIES: USF leads 2-1 STORYLINES: USF freshman Marlon Mack leads the AAC in rushing (97 yards per game). Houston leads the AAC and ranks 10th in FBS allowing 17.9 points per game. The Cougars also lead the conference and are sixth in the nation in pass efficiency defense (98.74). The game marks USFs 100th in Raymond James Stadium. The Bulls are 68-31 in the stadium built in 1998. Houston sophomore Greg Ward Jr. has led the Cougars to consecutive victories after replacing John OKorn at quarterback.

Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon resigned Friday, setting the stage for new leadership at the top of one of the nations most prominent athletic departments. Brandons departure comes amid another disappointing football season and concerns over the schools handling of everything from its concussions protocol to student attendance at games. Football coach Brady Hokes future has been in doubt for a while thanks to his teams lack of progress, but Brandon also became a target of disgruntled fans and students. Schlissel ofcially took over in September and a month later said he wanted to do an in-depth review of Michigan athletics. Displeasure with Brandon and Hoke was already mounting at that point, with the football team struggling and the department under sharp criticism for its handling of quarterback Shane Morris head injury in a Sept. 27 game against Minnesota. Morris was allowed to play briey after a hard hit. Brandons resignation becomes ofcial today, and the university has agreed to pay him a total of $3 million through 2018. The timing of Brandons departure gives Michigan a chance to nd a replacement by the end of the football season, when a decision on Hokes status could come. But Schlissel indicated he would take as long as necessary to nd a new athletic director. Jim Hackett, who graduated from the university in 1977 and like Brandon played football for Michigan, was appointed interim AD on Friday. Schlissel indicated Hackett could potentially be empowered to make the decision on Hokes status at some point. Hoke was hired to replace Rich Rodriguez and took Michigan to the Sugar Bowl in his rst season, but the program has declined steadily since then. Hoke was criticized for not immediately sitting Morris for the rest of the game after the sophomore took a hard hit in the fourth quarter of a 30-14 loss to Minnesota. Morris was later diagnosed with a probable concussion. Brandon said communication was a problem both during the game when Morris was hit, and over the next couple days. The school announced a change in protocol. The lackluster perfor mance has been accompanied by a growing sense of malaise among fans. Empty seats in the area where students sit have become common. Around the nation: Kentucky athletic director Mitch Barnhart gave coach Mark Stoops another contract extension through the 2019 season in an amended deal that will pay him $21.75 million. Florida State running back Karlos Williams is subject to a Title IX investi gation by the school, which is already under investigation by the Department of Education for how it handles possible Title IX violations.Michigan AD resigns amid disappointmentBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS COLLEGE FOOTBALL NOTEBOOKInterim AD could decide Hokes status as coach rff rfntbbnn rfrfntttbfb bnr fbntbbrf brffntnb nnrffntnb fn r 50470323 Not valid with other offers. 7-Day Advance Tee Times (941) 423-6955 $ 29 before 7:30am and after 1:30 $150 $ 49 between 7:31am-1pm $ 39 after 1pm 4 PLAYER SPECIAL between 7:31 and 1pm $ 179 EXP. 11/15/14.

Page 6 The Sun /Saturday, November 1, 2014 SWIMMING POSTSEASONTODAY Region 4A-2 meet at Long Center, Clearwater, 5 p.m. (North Port) NOV. 7 Class 4A state meet at Stuart, 9 a.m. Region 2A-4 meet at Florida Gulf Coast University, 9 a.m. (Port Charlotte) NOV. 8 Class 3A state meet at Stuart, 9 a.m. Region 2A-3 meet at Long Center, Clearwater, 9 a.m. (Lemon Bay) Fridays meet so bitter sweet for the Tarpons: The boys won their schools first regional swimming title, but they lost a top swimmer and teammate in the process. Im proud of the kids; they fought for it after watching their teammate on the ground in a lot of pain and being hauled out on a stretcher, said coach Jeff Cain, who said he thinks Nelson might have torn a ligament in his knee. They hung together and they fought. That was a team win. The Charlotte boys swam their way to a win without Nelson, scoring 313.5 points to beat second-place Gulf Coast (303) and third-place Barron Collier (247). The girls team scored 66.5 finished 12th, 242.5 points behind Gulf Coast. Junior Hans Schroeder was the only Tarpon swimmer to earn automatic qualification into next Saturdays 3A state championship meet in Stuart, finishing second in the 200 freestyle (1:42.23) and first in the 100 backstroke (53.12). Diver Eric Stover also automatically qualified, finishing second in the 1-meter competition with a score of 386.85. Teammate Ethan Goff finished third with a 358.35. The Tarpons had three boys relay teams qualify: 200 IM (second-place finish), 200 and 400 freestyle (first). Junior Brandon Kern put himself in a good spot to qualify as an individual the top two from each regional meet advance, as do the next 16 best times in the class finishing fourth in both the 200 freestyle (1:46.78) and the 100 butterfly (54.34). He fell a half second short of advancing to states as a sophomore last season. I looked at the other regions, and I feel like I have a pretty good chance of getting in, said Kern, who added that being able to advance as an individual this season would be an accomplishment after only going as a member of a relay team last year. While the Tarpons were in a celebratory mood poolside, Cain wished Nelson, who he thinks would have finished top two in the 100 breaststroke, had been there. Its going to be really tough to enjoy it, Cain said of the state meet. They hope they do, but now we know, when weve been planning to go to states with A.J., we may not have that. We have to get ready and try to place as high as we can.REGION 3A3 CHAMPIONSHIPS at North Shore Aquatic Center, St. Petersburg GIRLS Teams: 1. Gulf Coast 309, 2. Osceola 277, 3. Fort Myers 260, 4.

The teams combined to place four runners in the top 10, led by Port Charlottes Tyler Fisher (second) and Charlottes Marshall Dillon (third), to advance to next weeks regional meet In the girls race, Charlotte advanced to regionals by nishing fourth, two points behind North Fort Myers. In the boys race, it was apparent early that the race would come down to Fisher and Fort Myers Dean McGregor. As they came down the hill the second time, McGregor pulled away for the win with in a time of 15:58.4, eight seconds ahead. We ran away from the pack, Fisher said. I ran a 4:53 rst mile, which is the fastest I ever ran. Hes a faster guy, so he can hold his speed and drop off less than me. I didnt run my race. I usually run more casual and that hurt me. After Randall nished, coach Ray Chumbley sweated out the rest of the teams nish order. Despite three nishers in bottom 25, Port Charlotte (157) sneaked past Riverdale (167) for fourth in the team standings thanks to Brandon Randalls seventh-place effort. We were relying on our top two guys to carry us. They knew they were under pressure and they came through, Chumbley said. The rest held their own and did the best they could and it was enough. Charlotte didnt have the same drama. It clustered its runners higher in the standings to nish third with 84 points, eight points behind runner-up Estero. Jonathan Wentworth (eighth) joined Dillon in the top 10. Dillon said he was more content to run his race. I hung back and built into it. I felt good and rode it out, running by myself and ran as fast as I could to the nish, Dillon said. Fort Myers won the boys district meet (25 points) as well as the girls (21 points), putting all seven of its runners in the top 10. In the girls meet, Michaela Flowers led Charlotte with an 11thplace nish (21:08.4) and Brittany Smith was 15th to put the Tarpons, who ran without an injured Erin Roche, into regionals with 111 points. It was very emotional for us because we thought we would need her. Weve pushed ourselves all season, so its not like we cant do it together, Flowers said. Everybody here left it on the course. Port Charlottes Brittany McGivern nished 24th (23:02.2) to lead her team, which nished 10th and did not advance. Fort Myers Kristlin Gear won with a time of 19:30.0.

Stewart turned a lap at 200.111 mph in the second of three qualifying rounds Friday before dropping off to sixth in the nal found on the high-banked 112-mile oval. Kenseth topped the eight drivers eligible for the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship with a nal-round lap of 199.299. Jeff Gordon will be outside on the front as one of ve Chase qualiers starting in the top 10. The others are Kevin Harvick (fth), Ryan Newman (seventh) and Joey Logano (10th). Brad Keselowski is the lowest of the Chase qualiers at 26th. His only worse start was 33rd at the season-opening Daytona 500. Johnson calls format bizarre: Jimmie Johnson said NASCARs new championship format has seemed bizarre, but the eliminated six-time champion knows he has to think about the big picture for racing. Johnson was among 16 drivers who initially made the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. He is out of contention for his seventh season title even with three wins and 1,119 laps led this year. Four-time race winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. also cant win the title after the first two championship rounds cut the field to eight drivers. It has seemed bizarre since the onset. I, though, feel that I need to take a different approach and think of it differently and think of what is good for the sport, Johnson said Friday. This is really being put back in the fans hands. At the end of the day, if there are more people tuning in and watching, we are creating the drama, sponsorship is in the sport, then it is what we need to do. I made that conscious decision when Brian France called me and told me where things were going for this year. Harvick wreck bothers Kenseth: Matt Kenseth feels terrible about the wreck that left Kevin Harvick last among the eight drivers still eligible in NASCARs championship chase. And Kenseth would be just as frustrated as Harvick, who seemed to promise retaliation after last weeks race at Martinsville. I couldnt feel any worse about it, and I hope he has a really good week this week or next week and wins one of these races, Kenseth said Friday. I know he doesnt want to be taken out of it for something he had nothing to do with it, and I certainly dont want to be the guy to take him out of it. Kenseth is fourth in the standings going into Sunday at Texas. Sadler to join Roush: Elliott Sadler is headed to Roush Fenway Racing next year in a move that will reunite the team with a former sponsor in NASCARs second-tier series. Sadler sponsor OneMain Financial announced Friday that it is moving with the driver when he leaves Joe Gibbs Racing after the season. Hamilton tops grand prix practice: In Austin, Texas, Formula One championship leader Lewis Hamilton posted the fastest times in two practice sessions at the U.S. Grand Prix, but abandoned the second session with about 10 minutes to go to deal with engine problems. Hamiltons fastest lap at the Circuit of the Americas was 1 minute, 39.085 seconds in the afternoon. AUTO RACING NOTEBOOK See Score board for Sprint Cup lineup, Page 4 give them a 14-0 lead. He grabbed a 27-yard touchdown pass from sophomore Victor Mellor in the second quarter to give the Manta Rays a 28-6 advantage. McGill also was in on numerous tackles. I guess I like playing defense more (than offense), McGill said. Ive been playing it all my life. This season was the rst time Ive ever played offense. We, as seniors, wanted to nish the season on a high and get three straight winning seasons. Brian was all over the place tonight, Ogilvie said about his inside linebacker. He and all the players did a great job. Junior quarterback Jeremy Snook opened the Manta Rays scoring with a 30-yard pass to Nic Mostyn following a 34-yard run by sophomore running back Braydon Curry midway through the rst quarter. McGill followed with his interception for a score before the Panthers Kendall Moore returned the following kickoff 95-yards for a score to make it 14-6 at the end of the rst quarter. Then the Manta Rays reeled off 28 straight points in the second quarter to take a 42-6 lead into the locker room at halftime. Anthony Marinola scored on a 14-yard run for the rst score in the second quarter, followed by McGills second touchdown, a 2-yard run by Sean Connaghan and a 7-yard run by Snook up the middle. That was all the Manta Rays needed. They kept the ball on the ground as they ran out the clock in the second half and emptied the bench. Besides McGills interception, Snook and Josh Chapman also intercepted passes. Chapmans interception set up a touchdown. Curry led the Manta Rays rushing attack with 90 yards on just ve carries. Marinola added 36 and Mellor 35. The Manta Rays rushed for 236 yards on 30 carries (almost eight yards per carry) and 57 passing for 293 yards total offense.

The Sun /Saturday, November 1, 2014 SP Page 7 Indians clinch district crownBy SCOTT LOCKWOODSPORTS WRITERVENICE Venice High School returned to its usual high-ying ways in Fridays 42-8 victory against Osceola Seminole, using several quick drives and a suffocating defense to cruise to its rst district title in ve years. It means so much and it just feels great, said senior Langston Provitt, one of several of the teams seniors honored during senior night festivities prior to the District 6A-7 game. We havent won much in the past four years. People doubted us and this goes to show that we have the defense to stop any team. Venice marched 65 yards in a little over three minutes for their rst score of the game. Freshman quarterback Bryce Carpenter made two key plays with his feet during the drive, including a 12-yard run on a fourth-and-inches play where he carried several Warrior defenders on his back for 10 yards. Langston Provitt nished it with a 1-yard touchdown dive for the rst points of the game. Venice needed three plays to go 80 yards on its next possession, which started with a 27-yard run by Brandon Davis and a 49-yard strike from Carpenter to Noah Montgomery. Davis scored from 4 yards out to give the Indians a 14-0 lead at the end of the rst quarter. Provitts 19-yard interception return gave the Indians the ball at the Seminole 27. The Indians needed three plays to score, with Carpenters 22-yard scamper setting up Eric Imperantes 2-yard touchdown run halfway through the second quarter. Venices big-play offense struck again on their next possession, with the Indians needing only three plays to go 60 yards for a touchdown by Malik Bryant. They kind of stacked the box and had a safety in when we were in I-formation, and we were able to do play-action and go over the top on them, Venice coach John Peacock said of the rash of big plays by his offense. We had that in our playbook. Bryce played a great game, and our running backs ran the ball real well. Provitt would nd the end zone one more time before the half. Seminole punter Maverick Abulone sent a punt way over Provitts head and the ball nearly rolled to a stop at the Venice 2-yard line. Provitt picked the ball up, went left, got some key blocks when he turned back to the right and raced away from the Warriors for a 98-yard punt return for a score. Provitt said the play came from Venice special teams coach Tim Weidlein, who told Provitt that he trusted him to make a play in that situation after Abulone boomed an earlier punt that barely rolled into the end zone.

It wasnt just the loss to Charlotte that was bad enough. But it meant that the Pirates would stay home in two weeks, while Charlotte went to the postseason for the seventh consecutive season. The Pirates took a tough blow from a Tarpons defense that kept them in check much of the night. We were prepared for it, Coffelletto said. But we couldnt get as much of a live look as they were going to do in a game. So Ingman looked for the positives where he could. Port Charlotte trailed 20-0 in the rst half and doggedly hung around like a boxer who refused to stay on the canvas. I couldnt be more proud of our kids tonight, Ingman said. Our goal is to win championships and our mission is to help young men become men. And that was proven tonight. Coffelletto turned in a gutty performance at quarterback, alternately running for his life and breaking tackles to keep drives alive. His 3-yard touchdown run with six seconds left before halftime seemed to breathe new life into the Pirates. But it was somehow par for the course in a gutty perfor mance in which he nished with 28 carries for 40 yards and two touchdowns. I was getting hit left and right, he said. I was just trying to stay on my feet and gain the extra yard. We needed it. The rst downs were big, they were game-changers. He also completed 12 of 23 passes for 127 yards on night when Port Charlotte was missing Stephens, its most dangerous weapon. Coffelletto also threw two second-half interceptions, one that killed a Pirates drive at the Charlotte 15 in the third quar ter. But that didnt dim Ingmans admiration of the performance. Hes an incredible competitor, he said. I wouldnt trade him for the world. The Pirates cut the lead to 2014 in the fourth quarter, driving to the Charlotte 25 with 8:15 left, quieting the boisterous Tarpons crowd. But there the drive stalled. The dynasty fell, again depending on how liberally you wanted to use the word. Charlotte will move on to the postseason as has become the norm. The Tarpons deserved it, beating the team that has become their bugaboo the past couple of years. At least Port Charlotte didnt make it easy. That was the consolation that remained for the Pirates. They would have preferred the playoffs, but theyll take what they can get.Contact Rob Shore at or 941-206-1174.SHOREFROM PAGE 1 eld, Charlotte coach Binky Waldrop said. ODonnell added another eld goal after Port Charlotte failed trying to convert a fourth down in their own territory to put the Pirates in a 20-0 hole. It was the rst of several failed fourth down conversions for the Port Charlotte. We treated it as a playoff game, Port Charlotte coach Jordan Ingman said. It was do-or-die, the rst game of the playoffs for us, and you cant play scared. The Pirates ipped the momentum when quarterback Christian Coffelletto scrambled for a 3-yard score with six seconds left in the rst half, and the defense recovered two Charlotte fumbles in the second half. After a drive that stalled on one of those failed fourth-down conversions a fake punt that didnt fool Charlotte Coffelletto bounced back to score his second touchdown on the rst play of the fourth quarter to cut the lead to 20-14, and put pressure back on the Tarpons. Unfortunately for Port Charlotte, fourth down conversions bit the Pirates once more when Coffelletto threw a pass over the head of Paulsin Heitter in the endzone for a score that wouldve give them the lead with six minutes to play. Charlotte, which hadnt scored all second half, quickly moved the ball down the eld and iced the game with a 14-yard run by Trevor Laurent. Fortunately we were able to get something going in the fourth quarter. If we dont go down and score, its a different story, Waldrop said. We had a great rst half, we needed to score touchdowns instead of kicking eld goals. Second half we came out at offensively, making mistakes and turning the ball over, and it almost killed us. When our defense was on the eld, they played their butts off tonight and Im really proud of our whole football team. Our special teams were awesome tonight and its a great win for us. Charlotte (5-3), which still has one more regular season game to play next week at East Lee County, will visit undefeated Viera (10-0) in the rst round of the playoffs on Nov. 14. Port Charlotte (6-3) will visit Lakewood Ranch next week, but the Pirates season ends there. Theyre a really good team, Waldrop said. They should be a playoff team too.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or zmiller@ 26, PORT CHARLOTTE 14Charlotte 3 17 0 6 26 Port Charlotte 0 7 0 7 14 First quarter C Nate ODonnell 27 eld goal, 5:27 Second quarter C Elijah Mack 3 run, 11:38.

Contact feelingfit@ or call 941-206-1134. The color of lung cancer is pearl. Its a pretty color, but it is not like pink, that slaps you in the face and makes you notice. Having a pearl campaign to raise awareness is hard to envision. Try or dering pearl armbands, pearl T-shirts, or pearl anything and see if anyone notices. So Ive been trying to think of other ways to draw attention to lung cancer awareness month, which starts today. I got ofcial proclamations from the city of Punta Gorda. The Charlotte County Commissioners and from Gov. Rick Scott that proclaim November Lung Cancer Awareness Month. But what good is a proclamation dedicating a month to awareness if nobody knows about it except the people in the room and there is nothing special going on? I asked the city of Punta Gorda if we could decorate Marion Avenue and Olympia Avenue with white ribbons, like they do in purple each year for Relay for Life. Apparently that is no longer allowed by the Florida Department of Transportation, which manages those roadways. I asked the folks at the Charlotte Harbor Convention Center if they would display on their electronic billboard November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month as you come over the bridge into Punta Gorda, but apparently there is a city ordinance that prevents them from messaging for nonprots not having an event at the convention center. So heres an idea: maybe next year The Lung Cancer Research Council will organize the rst National Lung Cancer Research Convention and invite the leading researchers and advocacy groups from across the country to convene here to discuss the issue of lung cancer. That might be good for our local economy and the movement we are trying to create. Stay tuned. Anyway, the point I am trying to make is that organizing some sort of display to create awareness is harder to do than I would have thought. So, I have a request. If you live anywhere in Charlotte County and want to help the ght against lung cancer, please wear a white ribbon or tie a big white ribbon on your property and ask your neighbor to do the same. If you really want to be supportive, purchase a November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month sign for your front yard at www.lungcancerresearchcouncil. org. Charlotte State Bank, Calusa Bank, and other businesses in the area are putting November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month on their monument signs to help raise awareness. I would love to see other businesses we did not specically ask, advertise their support as well. The Lung Cancer Research Council is offering businesses signs that say XYZ Business Supports The Fight Against Lung Cancer to be displayed at the Lung Cancer 5K Run/Walk next Saturday, as well as on their business premises. Signs can be purchased at www. I am leaving for New York City this weekend to be in position to ring the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange at 9:30 a.m. on Monday (Nov. 3), which is the rst trading day of November. The Lung Cancer Research Council has been on the list to do this since early this year, but we are still not conrmed. I am hoping we get a last-minute conrmation. Keep your ngers crossed!Of course, we have the SW Florida Lung Cancer 5K Run Walk and One Mile Memorial Walk coming up next Nov. 8. If you would like to join us register online today at www. you cant join us, go online to make a donation. Your gift will be used locally by our organization to help create awareness and promote lung cancer prevention, screening and early detection. Let me nish with a word about lung cancer screening and early detection. If you are a current smoker or former smoker with a 30-year history (dened as one pack a day for 30 years or two packs for 15 years, etc.) who quit smoking less than 15 years go, and you are between the ages of 55 and 79, you need to speak with your doctor about getting an annual lung cancer screening using low dose CT. Resolve to make November the month you remember to get screened every year. Screening is the whole point of awareness and the best way we have to save and extend lives. November is lung cancer awareness month! Tom Cappiello LIVING WITH CANCER MY DIARYI was diagnosed with stage 3A locally advanced adenocarcinoma (nonsmall cell lung cancer) in October of 2007.

The Sun /Saturday, November 1, 2014 Page 3 Port Charlotte Rehabilitation Center has announced the opening of its new gym, private recovery suites, and the start of renewal for their skilled nursing rehabilita tion facility. Weve added over 25,000 square feet of valuable facility space, which includes more therapy room, an expanded parking lot, and a separate entrance for our outpatient rehab gym as well as 65 private-recovery suites, said Mark Howard, chief administrator for Port Charlotte Rehabilitation Center. The new private-recovery suites and baths are equipped with a wireless nurse call system for those recovering from injury and room amenities include granite sinks, tile oors and at panel cable TVs. The gym has two warm-water pools with underwater treadmills. The therapeutic pools are also equipped with underwater video recording that will display on at panel TV monitors and serve to improve normal walking patterns. For the disabled and injured patients, there are mechanical lifts that will help enter the pools customized water resistance. The gym brings rehab technology from NASA with an anti-gravity treadmill, called the AlterG. This device helps therapists to un-weigh 80 percent of body weight, which is needed in order to follow postsurgical protocols and to diminish pain with walking. If a patient has hip or knee postsurgical weight-bearing limits, then weight is taken out of the equation. To improve function and activity, theyve added patented pulley equipment. It transcends free weights and dumbbells, because it can resist or assist 360 degrees of movement and allows a three-dimensional workout with a possible 550 functionally-packed movements. Their outpatient rehabilitation services, includes physical, speech, and occupational therapy to community clients. And theyve added many new therapy regimens consisting of cardiac, lymphedema and a pulmonary program. Heart and lung disease holds back too many people from an active life, says Howard. To make a therapeutic differ ence, we go one step further and combine physical therapy with respiratory therapy for a more comprehensive pulmonary treatment.When it comes to senior disability, they aim to please with life-altering programs. Because a large share of local senior disability is due to hand and shoulder conditions, theyve acquired the only practicing cer tied hand therapist in Charlotte County, according to the American Society of Hand Therapists online records ( next phase of construction will consist of a fresh bistro and caf and an emphasis on more places for patient and family interaction. It will include ve outdoor courtyard spaces, which helps people remain connected with nature and aids in recovery by reducing stress and lowering blood pressure. The facility was built to the latest South Florida hurricane codes and energy efciency standards to ensure protection and shelter. A specially equipped large medical van with wheelchair lifts serves in the efciency and the safety of transfer and to improve the continuity of care for medical-needs patients. Regarding the new gym, pools, private suites and upcoming additions, Howard says, Our patients and residents have the opportunity to blend modern therapeutic equipment, comfort and the latest conveniences with a facility that fullls their unique health care needs.

Page 4 The Sun /Saturday, November 1, 2014 An exercise program can help relieve pains and fatigue as well as preserve joint structure and function. Avoiding physical activity because of arthritic pain can lead to muscle loss and weight gain. Many people with arthritis become less and less active, believing that rest will relieve their symptoms. Exercise and physical activity have, in fact, been found to be one of the best treatments. Walking is especially beneficial. Begin by checking with your doctor for recommendations as to which type of exercise program is best for your particular type of arthritis. You and your physician can develop a balanced program of physical activity to reduce the damaging effects of arthritis. At the Cultural Center Fitness Salon, we are certified personal trainers. If your doctor feels a per sonal trainer can help you, be sure to get a detailed description of exercises and how we may best serve you. The foundation of endurance training is aerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise is any activity that increases the heart rate for a prolonged period of time. The benefits of aerobic exercise are that it increases oxygen rich blood supply to the entire body and builds stronger muscles. Start with low-impact, low-intensity exercise. Walking, cycling, stationary bikes and use of the treadmill are a good way to start. Utilizing treadmills and stationary bikes ensure a level ground and help prevent injuring yourself with an unexpected change of terrain. In addition, lower body resistance training appears to reduce pain and increase function, as does the loss of excess weight. Stronger muscles help support painful joints and prevent future disabilities. Therefore, exer cise can greatly improve joint mobility and increase muscle strength and overall bolster physical conditioning. Stretching is crucial. Stretch daily with a pain-free range of motion. Gently move every joint every day, thus enhancing mobility of both muscles and joints. Stop any exercise that causes pain. Range of motion exercise is important. Holding a joint in the same position for too long can cause permanent loss of mobility and limit the ability to perform normal daily activities Weight resistance exercises will help develop stronger muscles and will help keep weak joints stable, comfortable and protect them against further damage. For joints that are chronically painful, isometric exercise may be preferable. Isometric exercise, also known as static strength training, involves muscular actions in which the length of the muscle does not change and there is no visible movement of the joint. Isometric exercises can be used for general strength training and for rehabilitation. This enables muscle building without placing undue stress on the joint.

The Sun /Saturday, November 1, 2014 Page 5 They cant be seen by the naked eye, but an indoor-allergy sufferers sinuses can pick them up like a bloodhound at 20 paces. Dust mites. They are the number-one indoor-allergy trigger, according to Michael Tringale, senior vice president of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, a nonprot organization in Washington, D.C. Even if someone is not truly aller gic, dust mites can still be irritating, Tringale said. Theyre the equivalent of blowing sand in someones face. Dust mites are an eyeless six-legged arthropod a cousin of the spider with an undeveloped respiratory system, according to AAFA. Talk about irony, since they often cause watery eyes, sneezing and coughing in allergy and asthma sufferers. Mites measure only about to 13 of a millimeter and spend their lives moving about, eating and reproducing waste products, during their 2-4 month lifetime. It is a protein in their waste products and cells that cause allergic reactions, Tringale said. A female may lay up to 100 eggs in her lifetime. Depending on the species, AAFA said, it will take about 2 to 5 weeks for the egg to mature to an adult mite. Mites thrive in temperatures of 65 to 84 degrees and relative humidity levels of 70 to 80 percent, AAFA and the Mayo Clinic report. Hmmm warm and humid. What state does that possibly sound like? Mites diet mostly consists of dead human skin cells that work their way into the deep inner layers of furniture, carpets, bedding, stuffed toys and worst of all, mattresses talk about sleeping with the enemy. An average adult can shed up to 1.5 grams of skin daily thats enough to feed 1 million dust mites, AAFA reports. The bedroom is ground zero for mites, Tringale said. It is loaded with dead skin and hair cells. Its where we spend about 8 hours a day. Mites dont drink water they absorb water from the environment and any sweat that humans produce while sleeping, according to the Mayo Clinic. And since it is the protein of the mites that cause the problem, a dead mite is just as much of a problem as a live one. Even if you get rid of the live mites and the eggs, the decaying bodies of the dead mites still need to be removed, Tringale said. So, whats a person to do? The best strike is a preventative one. Encasing a mattress and pillows in dustproof allergen-blocking covers, Tringale said. Box springs can also be encased in allergen-proof covers. The Mayo Clinic and National Institute of Environmental Health also suggest this strategy. Tringale said to do the encasing as soon as you get the mattress. If you have an old mattress, one that is 10 to 15 years old, replace it, he said. About half of the mattress weight is now live and dead dust mites. Tringale cautions against using any kind of allergensprays for two reasons: One, if its a wet spray, its going to add moisture to the mattress, and mites feed on moisture. Second, its likely made with harsh chemicals that can not only irritate respiratory allergies, but cause a skin reaction as well. He also said professional cleaning may also be unnecessary. Vacuuming will get the surface dust, but its unlikely to get those mites dead and living that have settled into the deeper layers. And the only proven way to get rid of the eggs that cling to the bers of the mattress is to clean with water that is at least 130 degrees. Again, its back to the moisture perpetuating the cycle. He also cautioned against cleaners advertising processes like, UVA C rays to destroy bacteria. The issue isnt bacteria, Tringale said. Its a protein. Tringale, Mayo Clinic and NIEH recommend washing bedding sheets, blankets, pillowcases and bedcovers in water at least 130 degrees weekly. If bedding cant be washed, Mayo Clinic suggests putting it in the dryer for at least 15 minutes at temperatures higher than 130. Tiny dust mites horrifying for allergy sufferersBy RENEE LePEREFEELING FIT CORRESPONDENT PHOTOS PROVIDEDHouse dust mites (Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus).FIGHTING THE MITESA home will never be completely dust-free, but to further cut down on mites and other allergens, the agencies recommend the following practices: Choose synthetic-material pillows versus down or wool. Either set the air conditioner or use a dehumidi fier to keep the relative humidity in the house 50 percent or lower. A hygrometer, which is available at hardware stores, can measure humidity levels. Install a high-efficiency media filter in the conditioning unit. The filter should have a Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value of 11 or 12. Leave the fan on to create an air filter for the whole house and be diligent about changing the filter every three months. Get rid of wall-to-wall carpet and replace it with linoleum, tile or wood. If you cant afford to remove carpet from the entire house, at least remove it from the bedroom. If you keep your carpet, use a vacuum with either a double-layered microfilter bag or HEPA filter. Either will trap allergens. Wear a mask while dusting or vacuuming to avoid breathing in the allergens. Stay out of room for at least 20 minutes and some say up to two hours to let the particles to settle. Remove upholstered furniture and replace fabric curtains with blinds or washable curtains. Use a damp cloth or mop to remove dust; a dry rag or duster just stirs up allergens. Get rid of clutter. If it collects dust, it also collects dust mites, according to the Mayo Clinic. Remove magazines, knick-knacks and books from your room. If you or your child insists on having stuffed animals, make sure they are the washable variety and dont keep them on the bed. 50471582 'Tis the season to be healthy.Knee Disorders and Available Treatment OptionsIf knee pain is keeping you from doing the things youlove, find out about advanced orthopedic treatmentoptions-both surgical and non-surgical. 71Tuesday, November 4 1 5:30 6:30 p.m. RawdCo(wineM.o.,Bayfront Health Port Charlotte, 2500 Harbor Boulevard Orthopedic SurgeonEnjoy the Taste of a Heart Healthy LifeLearn key components of a heart healthy diet andparticipate in a live demo on how to prepare a hearthealthy meal that you will bring home to share!Thursday, November 6 15:30 6:30 p.m.Bayfront Health Port Charlotte, 2500 Harbor BoulevardAngioplasty & Stents for Heart Disease & Key ArteriesFor some, heart disease treatment can be achievedwithout surgery.

Page 6 The Sun /Saturday, November 1, 2014 UNION GROVE, Wis. Mike Knutson taught himself to play the har monica as a child, and the 96-year-old sang with his family for most of his life. Even now, as he suffers from dementia, music is an important part of his life thanks to a study looking at the impact of a nationwide music program aimed at helping dementia patients. The study being led by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is the largest yet on the impact of the Music and Memory program, which is in hundreds of nursing homes across the U.S. and Canada, said program founder Dan Cohen. Similar studies will be conduct ed in Utah and Ohio. Researchers are monitoring the responses of 1,500 Alzheimers and dementia patients who were given iPods at Wisconsin nursing homes through the program, which was highlighted in a documentary honored at the Sundance Film Festival this year. Their mental state will then be compared to the same number of people in 100 other nursing homes who havent received iPods. Knutson is often sleepy, but he perks up when nurses put headphones on him or when his family sings with him during visits at the Wisconsin Veterans Home in Union Grove, south of Milwaukee. He smiles, taps his feet and gently claps his hands upon hearing big-band music, which is part of his personalized playlist. The music really does something to wake him up and help him to be more engaged with what is going on around him, said his daughter, Barb Knutson, who lives in Madison. The state and UW-Milwaukee are investing about $300,000 in the program and study, money received through federal funds acquired from nursing home penalties. The program will be expanded to another 150 Wisconsin nursing homes next year. For the study, nursing homes put together personalized playlists for residents. Researchers then document residents interactions, watch sleep patterns, put on wrist monitors that track movement and collect music data. The study started this summer, and nal data should be available by next summer. You may see the immediate effects shown on the residents, but we dont really know if it actually has longer-term effects, said Jung Kwak, an associate professor of social work at the university. Researchers hope to determine whether music improves mood and behavior, which residents might benefit from and then tailor activities accordingly. They also want to see if music could someday reduce the need for prescription drugs, Kwak and Cohen said. Cohen, who founded Music and Memory in New York in 2006, said he hopes the Wisconsin study informs the health care system of the programs benets and potential cost savings.

The Sun /Saturday, November 1, 2014 Page 7 (Bloomberg) Simple exercise, such as walking and resistance training, improved thinking and memory in older adults in several new studies that suggest physical activity should be a key method in slowing mental decline. One trial found that walking may boost brain volume in the region for memory. Another showed that weight training helped the mental function of older women with mild cognitive impairment. The research was presented Sunday at the Alzheimers Association International Conference in Vancouver. Current Alzheimers drugs offer only temporary improvement in symptoms of the disease, which slowly destroys brain cells and robs patients of memory, thinking, concentration and function. Findings that even moderate amounts of exercise might benet the brain may offer patients a simple, nonpharmaceutical tool to help to stave off mental decline, said Kirk Erickson, an author of one of the studies. People want to nd a magic cure for Alzheimers disease, but for memory function, a pair of sneakers might be just as important, Erickson, an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania, said Friday. Physical activity appears to be an incredibly promising and effective approach and a nonpharmacological approach to improve brain function and hinder the progression of potential disease states like dementia and Alzheimers disease. We have a lot more research to go before we can sell this as a prescription. About 5.4 million Americans have Alzheimers disease and, by 2050, that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million, according to the Alzheimers Association. The number of people worldwide with the condition is expected to swell to 115 million by 2050. In the trial led by Erickson, researchers looked at 120 adults without dementia who engaged in moderate walking three times a week for 30 minutes to 45 minutes for a year or stretching and toning for the same periods of time. The researchers used magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, to assess the areas of the brain responsible for memory that usually shrink with age. They found a 2 percent growth in the area of the brain called the anterior hippocampus in those who exercised compared with those who engaged in stretching and toning. This is like essentially rolling back the clock by one to two years, Erickson said. More research is needed to deter mine if growth in that area continues with repeated exercise or levels off and what happens when someone stops exercising, he said. A separate study led by researchers from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver found that twice-weekly weight lifting, or resistance training, may help alter the rate of mental decline in older women with mild cognitive impairment. The trial followed 86 women ages 70 to 80 for six months who did resistance training, walking or balance and toning twice a week. Researchers found that the resistance-training group improved signicantly on tests of mental functioning and memory over those in the balance and toning group. No memory benet was seen among the walkers versus the balance and toning group. Teresa Liu-Ambrose, the studys senior author and an assistant professor of physical therapy at the Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute and the University of British Columbia, said strength training, which may be easier than aerobic activity such as walking for some older adults, requires people to think and learn new exercises, which may be why it worked better than walking in this study. Also, aerobic exercise may have to be done more frequently than twice a week to yield benets in people already at risk for developing dementia, she said. Physical activity, whatever shape and form, is benecial, she said. What researchers now need to focus on is rening who benets from which type of exercise program. A step in that direction comes with the results from a third trial today, which Liu-Ambrose was also the principal investigator. That trial found that weight lifting is more effective than balance and toning in improving or maintaining selective attention and conict resolution only among those with less cognitive impairment. The exercises yielded similar results in those who had more cognitive impairment. A fourth study from Japan included 50 older adults with mild dementia who were assigned to exercise that included aerobic exercise, muscle strength training and postural balance retraining for 90 minutes a day twice a week for a year, or to an education group that attended three classes about health over 12 months. The researchers found that those in the exercise group performed better on memory tests than those in the education group.Resistance training may improve memoryWIRE REPORT PHOTO PROVIDEDStudies have shown music may reduce agitation and improve behavioral issues that are common in the middle stages of Alzheimers. Even in the late stages of Alzheimers, a person may be able to tap a beat or sing lyrics to a song from childhood. Music provides a way to connect, even after verbal communication has become dicult.

Page 10 The Sun /Saturday, November 1, 2014 Jane Kaiser, 65, said theres no secret to being physically t for life: Stay in the game; dont sit on the sidelines. Those are the words of an athlete who has no health problems other than the twinges that come with age and still works full time as a home health care registered nurse and health instructor. Im not going to retire, she said. I have too much to do. She also teaches graphic design at St. Louis Community Colleges Continuing Education program. Since turning 50, she has compet ed every other year in the National Senior Games, and every year in the state Senior Games in Columbia, as well as in games in St. Louis and St. Charles, Mo. She also volunteers at OASIS, the YMCA, the St. Louis County Department of Health Medical Reserve Corps and the St. Louis Sports Commission. She takes no health-related medications, and her most fun time is baby sitting her granddaughter. Her lifetime efforts recently won her the Personal Best Award from the National Senior Games Association. The award recognizes active, healthy aging, both as an athlete and as a practicing nurse. The association cited her example of the benets of maintaining exercise, nutrition and preventative health practices throughout life. It was an award for my balance in life, Kaiser said. From early school to college, Kaiser has played one or more sports. When she wasnt playing a sport, she was chasing around her four children whom she had in the space of six years, an athletic event in itself, she said. Then the last one left home, just about the time she hit the half-century mark. Turning 50, I took it a little harder than I wanted it to be. Shed always been driven, she said. So rather than get into occasional exercise, she decided to compete in the Senior Olympics: track, running short and middle distances, and eld events, enough to qualify her for a decathlon if the competition had one, which it doesnt. And she was a swimmer in the individual medley. The decision has carried her into her 60s quite well. Shes 132 pounds at 5 feet, 5 inches tall, although she looks smaller. All of her health numbers, including her BMI, are in the healthful parameters. She said she rarely gets questions about how she has stayed so healthy at her age, but gets a lot of questions about how to get healthy. Living a healthy life is not a spectator sport, she said. You have to make a choice to be active and make good choices. Along with competing in and training for athletic events, she follows the eating plan, the program by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It recommends portion control and food selections. She has used her knowledge of graphic design to create an instruction book on how the plan works. Then, as a registered nurse with Visiting Nurses Association, she teaches what she knows through a wellness program. She shares healthful eating practices with companies and groups. The 2015 National Senior Games will be July 3-16 next year in Bloomington/ Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minn. Kaiser said she plans to be there. She and her husband, Francis Kaiser, want to make a vacation out of it. Kaiser said her energy levels came from having good parents. She has been active as far back as she can remember, including childhood athletics. But that doesnt mean other people cant reach for things they can achieve. You can do what you can do, she said. I tell people, start taking a 10-minute walk on your lunch hour every day. Youre sitting in front of the TV, get a couple of cans of vegetables and work your arms. A lot of people like me dont like raw vegetables, she said. But they can eat a big salad three, four times a week, and make sure it has four colors. Keep a bag of Cheerios in the car and nibble on them so when you get home you dont eat everything in sight, she said. And be patient. Developing new, healthful habits can take up to a month, she said, or even longer. You have to be in the game, she said, not on the sidelines. Its a journey; get lost in the game. The rewards far outweigh the sacrices, she said. When you do this, it invigorates you and gives you the tness to do other things that you want to do, she said. When youre in shape, you can do what you want to do. Despite her trophy case of medals and ribbons, she doesnt consider herself elite. At the nationals, I meet a lot of excellent athletes, she said. Im not the one who wins; I always nish fourth or seventh in national events. She excels at the state level. She holds the state record in her age group (6569) in the triple jump. She has medals in many of the events she enters. But in the nationals, The rst three get medals; they give ribbons down to eighth place, she said. Im really close; I just have to try a little harder.She started fit, is fit, plans to stay fit and shes 65By HARRY JACKSON JR.ST.

End of story. Or maybe its just the beginning. Your new healthy eating habits can start here. Today. To aid all of us who struggle with weight, Im fanatically on the hunt for not-too-painful tips from those who have lost pounds and, most important, keep them off. Which is why I asked Judy Weitzman for her good ideas. She lost 50 pounds and has not gained it back over the past 30 years. She knows its not easy. Thats why she wrote the book, How to Eat When Life Gets in the Way. She shares healthy eating strategies for various ethnic restaurants, parties, buffets, salad bars, at work, fast food, picnics and other eating (and drinking) obstacles reality throws at us. Some examples: Salads: This weight-loss staple can actually be death to healthy eating. Dressing is a calorie hand grenade. Dont slather; instead dip your fork in and then spear your salad. Add these with great caution: nuts, cheese, dried fruit, creamy anything, bacon and croutons. Giant restaurant portions: Ask immediately for a container and save lots for later. Buffets: Danger zone. Choose only four things, two of them vegetables. Visit only once. Three oclock slump: Protein snacks instead of chips or candy. Bring a deviled egg with 1 tablespoon of hummus instead of the egg yolk (52 calories).Tips for outsmarting common diet pitfallsBy ELLEN WARRENCHICAGO TRIBUNE rf nnntbt 50471556 River Commons Senior Living Community THANK YOU READER FOR YOUR VOTE OF CONFIDENCE IN RIVER COMMONS SENIOR LIVING COMMUNITY STUDIO* ALCOVE* ONE BEDROOM APARTMENTS Call today!
