AUSTIN FULLER | Staff Writer austin.fuller@dailycommercial.com Preliminary plans have been submitted to the city of Eustis for a large retail plaza on U.S. Highway 441 that could house an Aldi grocery store and three popu lar restaurants, includ ing the rst Pollo Trop ical in Lake and Sumter counties. A Tijuana Flats restau rant and a Vitamin Shoppe are in the dis cussion phase, said Joel T. Arnold, the presi dent of ATJ Consulting, Development could bring Aldi, restaurants to Eustis MIKE STOBBE and MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Medical Writers A scary problem lurks beyond the frenzied efforts to keep peo ple from spreading Ebola: No one knows exactly where the vi rus comes from or how to stop it from seeding new outbreaks. Ebola has caused two doz en outbreaks in Africa since it rst emerged in 1976. It is com ing from somewhere proba bly bats but experts agree they need to pinpoint its origins in nature. That has had to wait until they can tame the current outbreak, which has claimed more than 1,100 lives in four countries the worst toll from Ebola in his tory. First and foremost get the out break under control. Once that piece is resolved, then go back and nd what the source is, said Jonathan Towner, a scientist who helped nd the bat source of an other Ebola-like disease called Marburg. Towner works for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Others say nding Ebolas or igins is more than a down-theroad scientic curiosity. Conrming the source would denitely be important, said Dr. Richard Wenzel, a Virginia Com monwealth University scientist who formerly led the Interna tional Society for Infectious Dis eases. Throughout history, some of the biggest wins against infec tious diseases have involved not just limiting person-to-person spread but also nding and con trolling the sources in nature fu eling new cases. Another Ebola problem: Finding its natural source An Egyptian fruit bat hangs upside down in its cage at the home of Geraldine Griswold in Winsted, Conn. Scientists theorize Ebola comes from some kind of bat, mainly because of how similar it is to Marburg virus, which researchers isolated from Egyptian fruit bats in Central Africa.

Tod Howard, the incumbent, is seeking reelection. Vying for his seat are Jamie Hanja, a nan ny, and Marc Anthony Dodd, a kindergarten teacher at Grassy Lake Elementary School. TOD HOWARD Howard, 43, a native of Lake County who has owned his chi ropractic business for the last 15 years, said he is proud of his many accomplishments on the board, including $80 million in budget cuts, saving $10 million in interest through renancing, setting up each school with WiFi capability and forming part nerships with businesses and the community. One such partnership, How ard said, is a new health science program for students in south Lake. Lake-Sumter State College, South Lake Hospital, the Lake County School District, Mont verde Academy and University of Central Florida are working together on the program. It is a great opportunity for our students, because it will help serve the future health care needs of our residents as well as providing the employ ment resources our businesses need to be successful, he said. It is important we continue those partnerships, not just in south Lake, but in north Lake. Howard said if re-elected he also would like to continue to have a tight scal budget. We must avoid further debt and pave the way to a pay-asyou-go policy, he said. Howard said there also are many challenges facing the board. The school districts C grade by the Florida Department of Education is one area Howard said must be reviewed.

He said the developer, Win Development, also is in discussions with yet an other popular restaurant that he could not name publicly. The plaza, called the Eustis Retail Center, would be next to Chilis and across from Target and Walmart. I think this project is going to be a real catalyst for the city of Eustis, Ar nold said. Work will get under way as soon as permitting is completed and the de veloper will be ready to break ground within ap proximately the next six months, if not sooner, Ar nold said. A response from Aldi said, At this time, it is too early to conrm any de tails of the store you are inquiring about. The preliminary plans show ve buildings in the center. Arnold said the Aldi and Pollo Tropical will have their own buildings. Epic Theatres plans to open a movie theater be tween Walmart and Tar get in November 2015. Arnold said that the movie theater was not a factor when the develop er began looking at the project, but is an added bonus and will drive traf c to businesses in the plaza. Eustis Economic De velopment Director Tom Carrino said high trafc counts on US 441 have sparked development in terest. There are a lot of peo ple going by every day and those people need products and services, and Im sure thats in large part whats fueling devel opment on 441, Carrino said. The planned business es at the plaza offer new products and services, Carrino said, and he liked the fact the project is be ing designed to give ve hicular access to adjoin ing properties so drivers wont have to get back onto US 441. This is the second time city staffers have re viewed the plans, which will be sent back with ad ditional comments, ac cording to Eustis Senior Planner Lori Barnes. She said the plans will then be resubmitted and go be fore the city commission for site plan approval. If approved, there will be a nal review process by staff before development begins. There are Tijuana Flats stores in Leesburg and Cl ermont. Aldi has locations in Leesburg, Lady Lake and Clermont. The Vita min Shoppe has stores in Clermont and Lady Lake. PLAZA FROM PAGE A1 deepened its civil rights investiga tion into the shooting. Ofcials said a day earlier that 40 FBI agents were going door-to-door gathering infor mation in the Ferguson, Missouri, neighborhood where Brown, who was unarmed, was shot to death in the middle of the street on Aug. 9. David Weinstein, a former feder al prosecutor who supervised the criminal civil rights section of Mi amis U.S. Attorneys ofce, said a federally conducted autopsy more closely focused on entry point of projectiles, defensive wounds and bruises might help that investiga tion, and that the move is not that unusual. He also said federal authorities want to calm any public fears that no action will be taken on the case. President Barack Obama, who has been getting regular briengs on the situation in Ferguson while on vacation, also was to be briefed by Holder upon returning Monday to the White House. The Justice Departments latest an nouncement followed the rst night of a state-imposed curfew in Fergu son, which ended with tear gas and seven arrests after police dressed in riot gear used armored vehicles to disperse deant protesters. Missouri State Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson said protesters werent the reason for the escalat ed police reaction early Sunday af ter the midnight curfew took effect, but a report of people who had bro ken into a barbecue restaurant and taken to the roof, and a man who ashed a handgun in the street as armored vehicles approached the crowd of protesters. Also overnight, a man was shot and critically wounded in the same area, but not by police; authori ties were searching for the shooter. Someone also shot at a police car, ofcials said. Gov. Jay Nixon, who imposed the curfew after declaring a state of emergency as protests turned vio lent to start the weekend, said Sun day morning on ABCs This Week that he was not aware the police were going to release surveillance video from the store where Brown is alleged to have stolen a $49 box of cigars. Its appeared to cast aspersions on a young man that was gunned down in the street. It made emo tions raw, Nixon said. Police have said little about the encounter between Brown and the ofcer other than that a scufe en sued after the initial stop, the of cer was injured and Brown was shot. Witnesses say the teenager had his hands in the air as the of cer red multiple rounds. When youre exhausted, when youre out of resources, when youre out of ammunition, you surren der, Browns uncle, pastor Charles Ewing, told worshippers during a Sunday sermon at Jennings Mason Temple in Ferguson. He surren dered, and yet he died. In announcing the standing cur few in Ferguson, Nixon said many protesters were making themselves heard peacefully but the state would not allow looters to endan ger the community. Johnson, the Highway Patrol captain, had said police would not enforce the cur few with armored trucks and tear gas and would communicate with protesters and give them ample opportunity to leave. Local ofcers faced strong criticism earlier in the week for their use of tear gas and rubber bullets against protesters. As the curfew deadline arrived early Sunday, most protesters left the streets, but those who re mained protesters refused to leave the area as ofcers spoke through a loudspeaker: You are in viola tion of a state-imposed curfew. You must disperse immediately. As ofcers put on gas masks, a chant from the distant crowd emerged: We have the right to as semble peacefully. A moment later, police began r ing canisters into the crowd. High way Patrol Spokesman Lt. John Hotz initially said police only used smoke, but later told The Associ ated Press they also used tear gas canisters. Jackson, the Ferguson police chief, has identied the ofcer who shot Brown as Darren Wilson, a six-year police veteran who had no previous complaints against him. Wilson has been on paid administrative leave since the shooting and the depart ment has refused to say anything about his whereabouts. Associated Press reporters have been unable to contact him at any addresses or phone numbers listed under that name in the St. Louis area. TEEN FROM PAGE A1 CHARLIE RIEDEL / AP Law enforcement ofcers wait to advance Sunday after ring tear gas to disperse protestors in Ferguson, Mo. Plague was halted af ter the germ was tied to rat-riding eas. With the respiratory disease SARS, civet cats played a role. With typhus it was lice, and with bird u, live poultry markets. Ef forts to control MERS, a virus causing sporadic outbreaks in the Middle East, include exploring the role of camels. In the case of Ebola, health experts think the initial cases in each out break get it from eating or handling infected an imals. They think the vi rus may come from cer tain bats, and in parts of Africa, bats are consid ered a delicacy. But bats may not be the whole story or the creature that spread it to humans. The World Health Or ganization lists chim panzees, gorillas, mon keys, forest antelope and porcupines as pos sibly playing a role. Even pig farms may am plify infection because of fruit bats on the farms, the WHO says. Its not clear what the animal is. Its going to take a lot of testing, said Dr. Robert Gaynes, an Emory University in fectious disease spe cialist who worked for the CDC for more than 20 years. Part of the puzzle is how long the virus has been in West Africa. Pre vious outbreaks have been in the east and central regions of the continent. The current outbreak began in rural Guinea, and the rst suspected rst case was a 2-yearold child who died in Gueckedou prefec ture in December, re searchers wrote in the New England Journal of Medicine in April. They did not speculate on how the child may have become infected. Some scientists think the virus has been lurk ing in the area for years. They point to the case of a lone scientist who got sick in 1994 after doing an autopsy on a wild chimpanzee in Ivory Coast and to a re cent study that explored the possibility that past Ebola cases in the re gion have gone undiag nosed. Scientists in the Unit ed States and Sierra Le one looked back at hun dreds of blood samples that were sent to a test ing laboratory in east ern Sierra Leone from 2006 through 2008. The samples initially were checked only for Lassa fever, which is common in West Africa. But when the scien tists recently went back and tested for other in fections, they found nearly 9 percent was Ebola. One or more types of Ebola virus have probably been there in the mix for some time but for some rea son didnt explode into a widespread epidem ic in West Africa until this year, said Stephen Morse, a Columbia Uni versity infectious dis ease expert. Ebolas jump from animals to people is thought to be rare. Ex perts say there may be a large degree of bad luck in becoming in fected in a cave as sociated with a Mar burg outbreak, Towner found the virus in only 3 percent of bats he test ed. Even if an animal source is clearly iden tied and people are warned, there is always likely to be an occasion al exposure someone who drives off the high way, in essence, Morse said. EBOLA FROM PAGE A1 ANTWERP INSTITUTE OF TROPICAL MEDICINE / AP The Ebola virus is shown as viewed through an electron microscope. In the case of Ebola, health experts think the initial cases in each outbreak get it from eating or handling infected animals.

Rick Veterans home decision stalls DINAH VOYLES PULVER Halifax Media Group DAYTONA BEACH Mike Daley hits the beach on Canaveral National Seashore before dawn most mornings, climbing into an all-terrain vehicle to survey 12 miles of beach, looking for unique trails in the sand that tell him a sea turtle plodded ashore to lay her eggs. Daley is among a small group of paid employees and volunteers who mon itor beaches along the coast of Volu sia and Flagler counties, marking and counting nests and recording the loca tions. It may take a female turtle sev eral hours to dig, then cover her nest, but the sweeping effort to protect the nests and ensure the babies nd their way to the ocean lasts for months ev ery summer. And, it enlists thousands of beachfront property owners and vis itors, either voluntarily or by law. Sea turtles, who can live up to 70 or 80 years and migrate great distances in the ocean, are thought to return to the beaches of their birth to nest. Last year, more than 4,000 nests were laid in Volusia and Flagler counties, with the greatest volume appearing along the 12 miles of the seashore within Volusia County. This year, the pace has slowed a bit, with a little more than 1,800 nests in the two counties so far. Daley, who has surveyed nests at the seashore for 16 years, can gener ally tell which of the protected turtle species that nest on Florida beaches have crawled ashore by the size and spacing of the tracks, which lead him to a mound of sand the mother has thrown with her ippers to cover the eggs. Most of the nests are dug by log gerhead or green turtles, but leather backs and even Kemps ridley turtles also occasionally nest here. Carefully, he digs down some times at on his stomach with his arm buried up to his shoulder to uncov er an egg to verify the nest for record keeping. He quickly replaces the sand over the ping pong ball-sized egg, then lays a piece of wire fencing across the nest to keep out raccoons and coyotes and covers it with sand.

Steve Murray, spokes man for the FDVA and a member of the selec tion committee, said in an email Friday that the recommendation was temporarily postponed and he had no addition al information at this time. Marion County is a close second on the committees list. The selection committee scored Marion 1,673 points after visiting the site offered for the 120bed home in June. Marion County trailed front-running St. Lucie County by just 21 points. The two are far ahead of the next competi tor. Third-place Col lier County nished 220 points behind Marion. The FDVA has said it needs a new nurs ing home because its six current ones in Daytona Beach, Land OLakes, Panama City, Pembroke Pines, Port Charlotte and St. Au gustine now have oc cupancy rates of 99 per cent. VETERANS FROM PAGE A3 The security enhance ments include the con struction of addition al security lights at the existing ramp area and proposed 20-space au tomobile parking lot, security cameras at the existing ramp area and fuel storage facili ty, gate key boxes, secu rity signage and modi cation of access control for one gate, the agenda states. The FAA and the Flor ida Department of Transportation will be paying for the bulk of the work, supplement ed by money from the citys Airport Fund. The work is expected to take 45 days. The board also will be asked Tuesday night to UPGRADES FROM PAGE A3 bicycle safety training in con junction with the Safe Routes to School Program. The aim of the program is to teach bicycle safety and fa miliarization with trafc rules and symbols, he said. Meanwhile, the Florida Highway Patrol announced Friday that for the next two weeks it will concentrate its efforts on drunk driving as part of the national Drive So ber or Get Pulled Over cam paign that runs through La bor Day Sept. 1. According to a press release issued Friday, the campaign also will coincide with the up coming Labor Day holiday weekend, which marks the traditional end of the summer travel season. All uniformed FHP personnel, including those normally assigned to administrative duties, will patrol interstates and other major state roads during the four-day holiday. FHP Auxiliary troopers also will volunteer to augment the patrol during the travel period. Take a shot at drinking and driving, and well provide the chaser, said FHP Direc tor Col. David Brierton in the press release. Safety in the schools has been a top priority of sever al law enforcement ofcers who have trained to respond to possible active shooters on campus. The sheriffs ofce, Mount Dora and Clermont police all staged shooting re sponses this month in various schools. Sheriffs deputies and the SWAT team swept the Eus tis High School campus on Aug. 1 and took out the mock gunmen who were ring ran domly at occupants inside the school with special marked rounds that left victims cov ered with paint. Then, teams of law enforce ment ushered in paramedics who found young male vic tims who appeared to be hurt with fake blood and gun shots. And recently the mem bers of the Clermont polices SWATs team traveled to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Georgia to attend an active shooter training program before go ing through similar scenarios last week at East Ridge High School. In the society that we live in today, the propensity of a multiple casualty violent sit uation is becoming more fre quent, said Capt. Michael McMaster, a spokesman with the Clermont Police Depart ment. Herrell added the number of sheriffs deputies on cam puses will increase for the rst couple weeks of school as stu dents and faculty get settled into their routines. And, hoping to increase its community policing, the Mount Dora Police Depart ment last week convinced the Lake County School Board to allow the police department to use its own police as school resource ofcers in its city high school as opposed to sheriffs deputies as part of a pilot program. We want to prove our part nership and commitment to community, said Mount Dora Police Chief John OGrady.

City of cials say the proj ect could cost more than $170,000, but the project qualies for both Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) money and In frastructure Surtax Fund money. The board also will be asked to review an $83,000 remodeling estimate for council chambers at City Hall. The room needs to be modernized and was recently damaged by rainwater leaks caused during roof work on the building.

So far this summer, Daley and his counter parts at the seashore have counted almost 3,100 nests along the sea shores 24 miles of beach in Volusia and Brevard. Similar efforts occur all along the coast with park rangers and con sultants who help mon itor and mark the nests. But the average beach goer is also asked to play a role in helping to pro tect sea turtles and their hatchlings, even during the daytime, said Amber Bridges, a eld biologist for Ecological Associates, which monitors nests in Volusia between Ponce Inlet and the Seashore. Everyone can help by lling in holes on the beach after a day of sand castle con struction, Bridges said. Large holes can trap female turtles or the young turtle hatchlings that emerge from the nests. Beachgoers also can help by not shining ashlights on the beach at night, she said, and by closing the curtains in beachfront rent al units to prevent the articial lighting from misleading a hatch ling into heading in the wrong direction. The natural glow of white-capped waves il luminated by starlight and moonlight is sup posed to draw hatch lings toward the sea, but sometimes bright lights on shore can lead them astray and to their un timely deaths in park ing lots or roadways. Already this year, Volusia County staff has received reports of at least ve disorienta tion events, said Jenni fer Winters, coastal hab itat program manager for Volusia County. And were not too far into our hatching season. Property owners are required to follow Volusia Countys light ing code, in effect from May 31 to Oct. 31 each year, which states prop erties along the beach must shield or turn off lights that illuminate the beach or are visible from the beach. A small part of Daytona Beachs boardwalk area is ex empt from the code. However, Volusia County environmen tal management staff have already noted or received more than 140 violations of the light ing code this summer, a slight increase over last year, Winter said. Winters said theyre hearing a lot of re ports this summer of interior lighting prob lems, such as people in condominium com plexes who leave blinds open in units close to the beach, especially in the area with the most nesting, south of New Smyrna Beach. She said the county general ly works with property owners and tries to get the problems repaired. Last summer, 7,933 turtles a record num ber sought out the seashores dark, natu ral dunes to dig nests, including 2,686 on the north half in Volusia. This year, the pace seems a little slower, said Daley. So far, he has counted a little more than 1,000 nests on the north half. Scientists dont yet un derstand why the num bers uctuate, said Anne Meylan, a research sci entist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con servation Commission. Female turtles dont nest every year, so from year to year, scientists dont know whos going to show up, she said. When a turtle does return to the beach to nest, Daley can tell by the depth of the track which direction a tur tle climbed up the beach and which way she left. Finding a green tur tles eggs can be a real challenge, Daley said. The turtle may dig a 30foot trench parallel to the dune and lay her eggs anywhere along the way. Its mind-bog gling what they can do. And that, he said, is why I never get tired of this.

When it comes down to it, we need to have an A on our door, he said, citing the need for strong leadership. We need to have Dr. David Christiansen (the chief academic ofcer) lead ing the way to make sure we have rigorous academic mechanisms in place to allow our teachers to teach. We need to provide profes sional development that will help our teachers to be more successful. Howard has been critical of Superinten dent Susan Moxley, calling for a new su perintendent search, which did not come to fruition because of a lack of support from the board. Human resource management with in the district is anoth er hurdle we must over come the way we move the leadership teams and how we are putting those togeth er and allowing them to function, he said. Howard said princi pals are moved around on a regular basis, leav ing no consistency within the district. Accountability in the district needs to be ad dressed, he stated, re ferring to the recent class-size controversy. Moxley called for a re view this winter after nding that six princi pals broke the law by inaccurately reporting their class sizes to the state. Principals at Mount Dora High School, Tavares Elementa ry School, Sawgrass Bay Elementary in Cl ermont, Sorrento Ele mentary, Lake Minne ola High School and Grassy Lake Elementa ry in Minneola reported that their average class sizes were smaller than was actually the case. We never got to the level I was comfort able with (knowing) who was responsible, Howard said. That still bothers me that no one took responsibility and said, You know what, it ends with me. One way of avoid ing the same problem in the future is to move school-based manage ment of operations to the district level, How ard said. Rigorous testing as the district aligns to the new Florida State Stan dards is another con cern. The over-utili zation of high stakes testing, Howard said, is damaging the educa tional system. We need to allow our teachers to teach, he said. The new tests coming out this year in place of the FCATs also leave teachers at a disadvan tage, Howard said. I am very concerned our teachers are going to be judged on a test they have not seen and a set of standards they dont know, he said. Reecting on his term on the board, by far the most difcult decision for Howard was cutting courtesy busing in 2013 for students living with in a 2-mile radius of the school. We released 60 teachers and four guid ance counselors, he said. When we started taking resources direct ly out of the classroom, it became a concern. We needed to make sure we are putting those dollars and re sources into the class room. MARC ANTHONY DODD Dodd, 35, a Clermont resident and teacher, said the importance of having a former edu cator on the board will help bridge the discon nect that occurs because the district is out of touch with the ongoing needs of the classroom. I think once you have a former teacher on the board, it opens the door for a new level of ap proachability and ac cessibility, he said. One of my primary motivations for running for school board was as a way to get teachers perspectives included in our decisions. Dodd said the dis tricts priorities are in the wrong place. When we contin ue to hire more people at the district level that dont have any contact with the students, it is a challenge for us when you consider some of the most valuable time I get as a teacher is one on one or a small group setting, he said. While acknowledging technological advanc es at the schools, Dodd said there are still basic issues with computers. There is a huge tech nology gap right now, he said. One night I blogged I was frustrated by my computer shut ting down and over heating in the middle of a session. I started re ceiving messages from teachers all over the county saying they had the very same problem with their computers. Dodd said there needs to be more col laborative planning time for teachers. There are so many mandates that take away from that time each year, he said. Dodd said if elect ed to the board he also would like to address courtesy busing. We still have stu dents within a 2-mile radius that are experi encing unsafe condi tions, he said. I would not let my 5-year-old or 8-year-old walk down some of those streets. I think people dont re alize if a student is stressed going to school, that throws off their learning experience for the rest of the day. Like Howard, Dodd said over-utilization of testing is another issue that needs to be cor rected, as well as how teachers prepare for the test that will replace the FCAT. Last year, the dis trict chose a test that is more than a decade old and not even aligned to the standards we teach, he said. They told us we were not al lowed to administer practice, tests which created a lot of anxiety in the classroom. Testing his students for 14 weeks is exhaus tive, Dodd said. That is a lot of in structional time that is lost, especially at such a crucial age, he said. Dodd said there are many ways he would address the failing schools in the district. We need to have the very best teachers in place, he said. That includes professional development for teach ers to make sure they are taking back the tools from the workshop they can implement in their classroom to create en gaging lessons. Cooperative learn ing and the use of tech nology in the classroom are other ways to ad dress the issue, Dodd said. Consistency in leader ship in the district is an other issue Dodd said he feels strongly about, referring to the classsize violation issue. I do believe there is a lot of fear from teach ers, he said, mention ing a teacher who was fearful she would lose her pension if she was honest about the classsize violations that were occurring in her class room. It is tough for teach ers to feel connected in the school with the re volving door of admin istrators, he said. Overall, Dodd said it is critical to have longrange planning and growth. I dont support go ing into debt to fund growth, he said. JAMIE HANJA Hanja, 40, said she would like to bring a fresh perspective to the board as a nanny. I am an outsider, she said. I am not a business owner and not in the education system. I would come in with fresh eyes and look at the problems. Prior to her work as a nanny, Hanja was an administrative assistant for eight years. The New York native said if elected she would incorporate her business background and expe rience nurturing early childhood development into her decisions as a board member. Her top priority would be tackling the budget, she said. I would like to take my personal highlighter and decide what needs to stay and what needs to go, she said. The safety of the children is my priority. Hanja, similar to Dodd, was unhap py with the boards de cision to cut courtesy busing. I would nd some savings in other areas, she said. Addressing the dis tricts grades is another priority, she said. What I have seen in community forums with the parents and the public is they seem to be pushing (the is sue) back on the com munity, she said. That is the school board kicking the can down the road. America is not the only country with single mothers and fa thers not in their chil drens lives. You need to look at the educators. She questioned why community forums were held now as op posed to when the schools were receiving C grades. That brings the is sue of leadership back to the forefront, which Hanja addressed. There is a low mo rale in the school right now because of (Mox leys) leadership, she said. The review conduct ed on class-size viola tions left many ques tions unanswered, according to Hanja. When they hired the consultant and sent sur veys to all the different schools, they did not ask them to give their name or what school they were answering the survey from, she said. There is no way to track down the person.

Those are the conditions offered to Christians and other religious minorities in northern Iraq by members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Since the Islamic State (for merly called ISIL and ISIS), a Sunni extremist group that has overrun vast swaths of the re public and declared a new ca liphate, began its march from Syria toward Baghdad sever al months ago, most of the esti mated 200,000 Christians who remained in the country have taken the only other option available and ed. In so doing, they have left the ancient city of Mosul bereft of its ancient Christian communities for the rst time in nearly two millennia. In the U.S., our debate over re ligious freedom is largely a mat ter for litigation and punditry. We worry that inclusion of the words under God in our vol untary Pledge of Allegiance is oppressive to nonbelievers. We ght over what role closely held corporations like Hobby Lobby should be forced to play in pro viding specic types of contra ception for employees. Those ar guments are not insignicant and implicate legitimate matters of conscience. But not even in our darkest nightmares could we imagine the kind of barbarism that is re portedly occurring in Iraq be headings, kidnappings, rapes, crucixions and other atrocities inicted on men, women and children, unrestrained cruelty simply for adhering to ones cho sen faith. Yet until last week, when Presi dent Barack Obama belatedly or dered targeted airstrikes on Is lamic State strongholds as well as humanitarian aid for religious and ethnic refugees, many of whom have ed to Iraqs semi autonomous Kurdish region, the U.S. has been mostly silent on the nascent genocide that seeks to rid the world of one of its old est Christian communities. As USA Today columnist Kirsten Powers points out, it was nearly two months after Mo sul fell to the Islamic State that the administration nally con demned the assault on religious minorities. An Iraqi Christian leader lamented to me that his people would have to convert to get the administrations atten tion, she wrote. Even Pope Francis, a paragon of peace and pacism, appeared more hawkish than the presi dent. A strongly worded state ment from the Vatican implored Muslim leaders to upbraid the actions of the Islamic State: All must be unanimous in con demning unequivocally these crimes and in denouncing the use of religion to justify them. If not, what credibility will reli gions, their followers and their leaders have? What credibility can the interreligious dialogue that we have patiently pursued over recent years have? Its fair to wonder: What cred ibility will the U.S. have if it fails to do the same? Arguments that the U.S. bears some responsibility for the dete riorating situation are not with out merit. The U.S. invasion and later withdrawal without an agreement on the status of forc es arguably precipitated the cur rent disaster. They also make our obligation to intervene now even stronger. Still, the sequence of events that lead to the current situation is too complex to trace directly to the U.S. invasion. As one French politician wisely noted, given the broad instability of the Middle East, Arab Springs in all their hopeful idealism typically be come Islamist Autumns. And the leaves are certainly falling. The imagery of centuries-old churches now shadowed by the black ag of the Islamic State and ancient Christian archae ological structures razed into dust dees imagination. And the scenes of Iraqi Christians who have inhabited these Iraqi cit ies since the rst century eeing their ancestral homelands by the thousands, likely never to return, are heartbreaking. But the long-term conse quences of the Islamic States rise to power should be equal cause for alarm. Religious scholar Mark Movsesian understandably wor ries, What ISIS has done in Mosul is a worrying hint of Is lamisms possible future. Oth er militant groups that espouse extreme views of Islam, from Hamas to al Qaeda, are watch ing not only to gauge the groups success but also the worlds re sponse to such unfettered de struction. Recounting his meeting with Pope Francis in March, Obama reafrmed (to the pontiff) that it is central to U.S. foreign poli cy that we protect the interests of religious minorities around the world. Perhaps with his decision to authorize airstrikes and provide humanitarian assistance, the president will live up to his word. We can only pray. Cynthia M.

Allen MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE The destruction of Christianity in Iraq E gypt, the heart of the Arab world, could and should be a major player today in nding resolution to all of the chaos and violence in the Middle East today. Instead, it is returning to the kind of repressive, po lice-state ways it experienced under former (and now jailed) President Hosni Mubarak. The distressing evidence is in the news al most every day. The countrys highest administrative court late last week dissolved the political party of the banned Muslim Brotherhood. The Broth erhood dates back to the 1920s, though its political party was created in 2011. One of its top leaders, Mohammed Morsi, became pres ident for a year. Morsi then was driven from ofce by the Egyptian military, which chose President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi as president. El-Sissi has turned into another repressive Mubarak type. This week two senior executives of Human Rights Watch were barred at the Cairo airport from entering Egypt. They had come to dis cuss their yearlong investigation into mass killings of anti-government protesters. Not even the Mubarak regime had ever stopped Human Rights Watch from entering Egypt. Despite pleas from President Barack Obama and other world leaders, Egypt has sentenced three Al Jazeera journalists to seven years in prison after they were charged with aiding the Muslim Brotherhood. Even el-Sissi is having regrets about what the courts did, but he has done nothing to right the situation. Egypts public prosecutor recently began an investigation of a jailed democracy activist, Ahmed Maher, for alleged high treason be cause of a June 4 op-ed piece he wrote from prison for The Washington Post Freedom of thought and speech seems to have little re spect among Egyptian authorities these days. Egypt, the most populous Arab country and the most prominent site of the Arab Spring protests that began in late 2010, is failing to live up to its long and proud history of being a center of Middle Eastern life and culture. Instead of banning political parties, the ma chinery of Egyptian government should be creating political space for legitimate compe tition and dissent. Instead of jailing journalists, authorities should let them work freely and simply insist that the ofcial governments position be re ported as well. And instead of imagining that its treasonous to write op-ed pieces for western newspapers, Egypt should encourage its people to express public support for foundational human rights. At the moment Egypts leadership is getting all of that backward. Distributed by MCT Information Services.

But there are many signs that wont hap pen: For the second straight draft, no run ning backs were select ed in the rst round, an absence not seen since 1963. Over the last ve years, a total of seven running backs were rst-round picks. From 2000-2004, there were 15. From 19851989, there were 25. Last year, only McCoy and Lynch ran the ball 300 or more times. In 2003, 13 play ers did that. Only nine teams in the league last sea son had one play er take 60 percent or more of their rushing attempts, down from 14 in 2003 and 14 in 1998. Nine teams also had two players with 30 percent or more carries last year, up from ve in 2003. Last seasons lead er in team rushing at tempt percentage was Chicagos Matt Forte with 72 percent, and hes not close to ap pearing on an alltime list. According to STATS research, the most recent player in the top 20 was Edgerrin James with 81 percent for Arizona in 2007. Even Peterson has nev er topped 72 percent in his career. James has the most in history, ac cording to STATS, with 89 percent for India napolis in 2000. Only two of the last 10 Super Bowl champions have fea tured a 300-carry run ning back: Lynch last season and Corey Dil lon for New England in 2004-05. The New York Giants nished last in the league in rushing in 2011 and still went on to win the title. BACKS FROM PAGE B1 and after Bowden, the Hall of Fame coach whom Fisher replaced, won his rst national championship in 1993, Florida State started 1995 ranked No. 3. Fishers Seminoles have a long way to go to compare to Florida States unprecedented run of national cham pionship contention, a string of 14 straight sea sons during which the Noles nished the sea son ranked in the top ve of the AP rankings. Still, make no mis take: Florida State 2.0 is built to last. Were the second-win ningest team in the coun try the last four years, the winningest team the last two years and have had the most NFL players, Fisher said. Weve re cruited well, too. Recruit ed a lot of great young players weve been able to mentor and develop as we go, so were very com fortable with the guys who are replacing the guys that left. The Seminoles were an overwhelming choice as No. 1, receiv ing 57 of 60 rst-place votes from the media panel. No. 2 Alabama, No. 2 Oregon and No. 4 Oklahoma got one rstplace vote each. Ohio State is No. 5 and Auburn, which lost the nal BCS national cham pionship game to the Seminoles 34-31, is No. 6. Last season was a good reminder that pre season rankings can look pretty silly by the end of the season. Four teams that nished in nal top 10 last sea son (No. 2 Auburn, No. 3 Michigan State, No. 5 Missouri and No. 10 UCF) were unranked to start the season. Throw in No. 13 Baylor, No. 20 Arizona State and No. 23 Duke, and seven of the teams that either won or played for the cham pionship in the six con ferences with BCS auto matic-qualifying status began 2013 unranked. The Bowl Champion ship Series is gone now, replaced by the College Football Playoff. The top four teams will play be placed into national seminals to be played on New Years Day and advance to the cham pionship game about a week and half later. Expect surprises, though coming up with a scenario in which Florida State is not part of college footballs rst nal four is difcult. Winston will make a run at his second Heisman behind an of fensive line that returns four starters. Theres turnover at receiver and running back but still plenty left of fourand ve-star talent left be hind. Same goes on de fense, where sopho more safety Jalen Ram sey and defensive end Mario Edwards step into leadership roles. Florida State is the hunted again. Fisher wants them to still act like hunters. We better have that attitude. Its got to be your attitude every year, said Fisher. POLL FROM PAGE B1 with about 32 laps remaining and nished eighth, remaining win less at this track in his home state. Johnson overcame some prob lems of his own to nish ninth, his rst top-10 showing in six races. Jeff Burton was 37th after re placing Tony Stewart in the No. 14 car. Stewart skipped his sec ond straight Cup race after he struck and killed a driver at a dirt-track race in New York last weekend. Gordon won for the 91st time on NASCARs top series, and this is his rst three-win season since 2011. He took over the lead in the points standings by three points over Earnhardt. Assuming they attempt to qualify for the nal three rac es of the regular-season, the 12 drivers with victories this season have all wrapped up spots in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Kenseth remains the top driv er without a victory in the stand ings. Rookie Kyle Larsons car caught re against the wall just before the halfway point, and he ended up 43rd. NASCAR FROM PAGE B1 (1-2) didnt allow a hit until there were two outs in the fth. After a walk to Ste phen Drew, Martin Pra do doubled and Gard ner followed with a two-run single. Jaco by Ellsbury, hitless in his previous 17 at-bats during a ve-game road trip, made it 3-1 with an RBI single on New Yorks fourth straight hit. Hellickson made his sixth start after right el bow surgery in January. He left after the fth. Mark Teixeira reached 20 homers for the 11th time in his career with a solo shot in the eighth. Evan Longoria had two RBIs for the Rays. He hit a run-scoring grounder in the rst and drove in Joyce with a seventh-inning single that pulled Tampa Bay within 3-2. Prado also made sev eral strong defensive plays at second base during Kurodas long run of consecutive outs. Tampa Bay had its club record of hold ing opponents to three runs or less end at 12 consecutive games.

Lexi Thompson began the run at Kraft Nabisco, Michelle Wie won the U.S. Womens Open and Mo Martin the Womens British Open. The 26-year-old Park, from South Ko rea, was coming off a playoff loss to Mirim Lee last week in Michi gan. Park also won this season in Canada and has 11 LPGA Tour vic tories. Shes projected to jump from third to sec ond in the world, pass ing 17-year-old Lyd ia Ko of New Zealand. Ko, trying to become the youngest major winner in LPGA histo ry, shot a 70 to nish third at 8 under. Spains Azahara Mu noz (70) and Swedens Anna Nordqvist (71) tied for fourth at 6 un der. Lincicome squan dered the lead she had held all day on the nal hole of regulation. She hit her second shot to the left fringe and was in a good spot, but a long delay for a ruling on a shot by Suzann Pettersen only height ened the tension, and it showed. With top-ranked Stacy Lewis among the gallery clapping, Lincicome left her rst putt 8 feet short and failed to make par, forcing the playoff. Pettersen, a twotime major winner, started the day a shot behind as she chased her rst win this year.

Camilo Villegas won the Wyndham Champi onship by a stroke Sun day for his rst PGA Tour victory since 2010. Villegas shot a 7-un der 63 and nished at 17-under 263. He earned $954,000 and 500 FedEx Cup points in the nal regular-season event. The Colombian had four birdies and an ea gle on the front nine, added a birdie on the par-5 15th and took the lead into the clubhouse. He then watched the rest of the eld stum ble late, giving him his fourth PGA Tour title and rst since the 2010 Honda Classic. Bill Haas and Freddie Jacobson tied for sec ond. Haas had a 64, and Jacobson shot 66. Jacobson needed a par on the nal hole to force a playoff, but he rolled his 11-foot putt inches past the hole. Heath Slocum was two strokes back after his 67. Brandt Snedeker, Webb Simpson and thirdround leader Nick Wat ney were at 14 under. Villegas had to wait about 40 minutes after his round ended before his victory was secure. He closed his round with three straight pars, tapping in from about 2 feet on 18 and hoping it was good enough. It was because the crowd near the top of the leaderboard thinned itself out. Watney was at 17 un der and appeared head ed for his sixth PGA Tour victory before he ran into trouble on 14 and picked up his third bo gey of the tournament and second of the day. He followed with four straight pars, leaving him needing a birdie on the nal hole to tie Vil legas. He had one on Satur day but couldnt do it again. He wound up with a double bogey after his tee shot bounced past a cart path and out of bounds. That came after Ja cobson also couldnt catch Villegas. The Swedes second shot on 18 fell short of the green and his 70foot birdie putt from the front edge rolled well past the hole before he was wide with his par putt. CHAMPIONS TOUR ENDICOTT, N.Y.

Peyton Manning threw a 17-yard touch down pass to Julius Thomas and dominated in his two series, lead ing the Denver Broncos past the San Francisco 49ers 34-0 on Sunday to spoil the NFL debut at sparkling $1.2 billion Levis Stadium. The 38-year-old Man ning, beginning his 17th season after throw ing for an NFL-record 55 touchdowns last year, completed 12 of 14 passes for 102 yards and a 120.8 rating. He was 8 for 8 on Denvers sec ond drive, then back up Brock Osweiler took over and threw for a score and led another touchdown drive in a preseason matchup of the past two Super Bowl losers.

EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer M arijuana is cast ing an ever-thick ening haze across NFL locker rooms, and its not simply because more players are using it. As attitudes toward the drug soften, and science slowly teases out marijua nas possible benets for concussions and other in juries, the NFL is reaching a critical point in navigat ing its tenuous relation ship with what is recog nized as the analgesic of choice for many of its players. Its not, lets go smoke a joint, retired NFL de fensive lineman Mar vin Washington said. Its, what if you could take something that helps you heal faster from a concus sion, that prevents your equilibrium from being off for two weeks and your eyesight for being off for four weeks? One challenge the NFL faces is how to bring mar ijuana into the game as a pain reliever without con doning its use as a recre ational drug. And facing a lawsuit led on behalf of hundreds of former players complaining about the ef fects of prescription pain killers they say were pushed on them by team train ers and doctors, the NFL is looking for other ways to help players deal with the pain from a violent game. A Gallup poll last year found 58 percent of Americans believe marijuana should be legalized. Thats already happened in Colorado and Washington the states that are home of last seasons Super Bowl teams. The World Anti-Dop ing Agency has said it does not need to catch out-of-competition mar ijuana users. And at least one high-prole coach, Pete Carroll of the cham pion Seahawks, public ly said hed like to see the NFL study whether mari juana can help players. There are no hard numbers on how many NFL players are using marijuana, but anecdotal evidence, including the arrest or league discipline of no fewer than a dozen players for pot over the past 18 months, suggests use is becoming With attitudes changing and science shifting, NFL searches for marijuana answers AP FILE PHOTOS Jacksonville Jaguars defensive lineman Marcellus Wiley, right, tries to take down New England Patriots wide receiver Andre Davis during a wild card playoff football game on Jan. 7, 2006 in Foxborough, Mass.

Survivors of breast can cer come together in droves to raise awareness, said Te resa Barnes, vice president of patient outreach and program support for the Coalition for Pulmonary Fi brosis, based in Culver City, Calif. Pulmonary brosis leaves no survivors, except a relative handful who re ceive lung transplants. Pulmonary brosis caus es progressive lung scarring and eventually suffocation. Hope is on the horizon.

He kept it up through mid dle school and during his years at Seneca High School. By the time he was 23, the Pendleton man had a packa-day habit. But one day, hed had enough. In short order, he quit smoking, began training regularly and he now com petes in ve triathlons a year. Whats more, hes become a health guru for his co-work ers, too. I smoked until I was near ly 24, says the IT support specialist for Baptist Easley Hospital. And then just the thought of smoking for half my life was more than I want ed to do. I quit cold turkey. Ironically, King, 31, al ways hated the smell of ciga rette smoke. The cost always strained his budget, too. But he got in with a smoking crowd, he said, and did as they did. You think at 12, 13, 14, youre being cool. Its not un til later that you realize youre not, he says. Its a very hard addiction to stop. But in 2005, he began work ing at the hospital, where smoking wasnt permitted on campus, affording him an opportunity. It was starting to get tougher to smoke, he re calls. And I remember smok ing when it was 30 degrees, 20 degrees outside in an ice storm. And you realize this isnt too bright. King had also lost two grandparents to smoking. And in the back of his mind was the nagging desire to be an athlete. So he kicked the habit in 2006. Then one day, he and a friend were watching a football game and ipping through a magazine when they saw an ad for a triathlon. I had always been ... jog ging around the neighbor hood a few times, even when I was smoking, he says. So we said, Lets do it. That fall, the Tri-County Tech graduate began training in earnest swimming at the Y and running and bicy cling over the streets of Pend leton. He competed in his rst short-distance triathlon a 750-meter swim, an 11mile bike ride and a 5K run in May of 2009. I did pretty well the rst time out, he says. I did it in about an hour and a half. First place was just under an hour, he says. Since then, hes been com peting in the Half Ironman, also known as the 70.3 for the combined miles participants swim, ride and run, and post ing his results on social me dia sites. Before long, he had come to the attention of Kelly Price, manager of employee and community wellness at Bap tist Easley. We offer a free monthly wellness luncheon on cam pus to all our employees, she says. We had included Kyles pictures in our weekly news letter and on our intranet site, too, and it sparked con versation around the hospi tal. So I said, I think the em ployees would really like to hear from you. At rst, King declined. Im kind of shy, he explains. But Price eventually per suaded him to take the plunge, and his program gar nered the second-highest at tendance in three years, and the highest turnout of men. He didnt just share the competition side of things, Price says. He shared differ ent risk factors, the history of how he quit smoking and how he incorporates healthy eating habits. King confesses that nutrition is still the thing he struggles with most because his training schedule means he has to con sume a lot of calories. But hes off the fast-food burgers and tacos that he lived on for years, mostly eat ing a healthy diet full of fruit and whole grains, though he and his wife still dine out just not on junk food. I try to eat as natural as I can. I dont like to eat a lot of meat during the week when Im training. I just feel bet ter, he says. A lot of people dont believe it makes that big a difference, but it does. Diet plays a huge role in be ing able to keep that up week after week. I couldnt do it eating fast food. Since Kings employee lun cheon, several workers have approached Price about well ness, and one signed on for a personal wellness program after hearing him speak. Four others hes worked with have competed in triathlons, tell ing her that if King could do it, they could too, she says. I denitely feel hearing from other employees helps, she says. They have a higher impact. King says the change in his life has left him feeling stron ger, more alert and more fo cused. Hes planning another talk for co-workers at some point and is busy training for another triathlon in October. Physical activity is my pas sion and Ive always wanted to share it, he says. It feels good to hopefully inspire peo ple and get them moving. S.C. man goes from smoker to triathlete HEIDI HEILBRUNN / AP Kyle King, an IT support specialist at Baptist Easley Hospital, quit smoking and decided to live a healthier lifestyle. NFL FROM PAGE C1 more common. Washington Redskins defensive back Ryan Clark didnt want to pinpoint the number of current NFL play ers who smoke pot but said, I know a lot of guys who dont regu larly smoke marijua na who would use it during the season. Washington wouldnt put a specic number on it but said he, too, knew his share of play ers who werent shy about lighting up when he was in the league, in cluding one guy who just hated the pain pills they were giving out at the time. Another long time defensive lineman, Marcellus Wiley, esti mates half the players in the average NFL lock er room were using it by the time he shut down his career in 2006. They are leaning on it to cope with the pain, said Wiley, who played defensive line in the league for 10 sea sons. They are leaning on it to cope with the anxiety of the game. The NFL is ght ing lawsuits on two fronts concussions and painkillers both of which, some argue, could be positively in uenced if marijuana were better tolerated by the league. The science, however, is slow-moving and ex pensive and might not ever be conclusive, says behavioral psycholo gist Ryan Vandrey, who studies marijuana use at John Hopkins. Marijua na may work better for some people, while nar cotics and other pain killers might be better for others. Different medi cines work differently from person to person, Vandrey said. Theres pretty good science that shows marijuana does have pain reliev ing properties. Whether its a better pain reliev er than the other things available has never been evaluated. Washington, who is part of the concussion lawsuit, is working with a bio-pharmaceuti cal and phyto-medical company called Kan naLife Sciences that re cently received licens ing from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to develop a drug to treat concussions us ing derivatives from medical marijuana. Co-founder Thoma Kikis, who has been working on canni bas-based solutions to concussions for a few years, said he ap proached the NFL about signing on to the research. They didnt want to meet, didnt want to take a position to create any kind of controver sy, Kikis said. I under stand that. But ulti mately, theyre going to have to make a decision and look into different research. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has tread ed gingerly around the subject. Before last sea sons Super Bowl he said the league would follow the medicine and not rule out allowing play ers to use marijuana for medical purposes. An NFL spokesman reiterat ed that this month, say ing if medical advisers in form the league it should consider modifying the policy, it would explore possible changes. A spokesman for the players union declined comment on marijua na, beyond saying the union is always look ing for ways to improve the drug-testing poli cy. But earlier this year, NFLPA executive direc tor DeMaurice Smith said the marijuana pol icy is secondary when set against the failure to bring Human Growth Hormone testing into the game. Some believe relaxing the marijuana rules could be linked to a deal that would bring in HGH testing. Different medicines work differently from person to person. Theres pretty good science that shows marijuana does have pain relieving properties. Whether its a better pain reliever than the other things available has never been evaluated.

The nd ings came under immediate attack by other scientists. Limiting salt is still import ant for people with high blood pressure and in fact, a sec ond study estimates that too much sodium contributes to up to 1.65 million deaths each year. The studies both have strengths and weaknesses, and come as the U.S. govern ment is preparing to nudge in dustry to trim sodium in pro cessed and restaurant foods. The rst studys leader, Dr. Salim Yusuf of McMas ter Universitys Population Health Research Institute in Hamilton, Ontario, urged keeping an open mind. There are those who have made a career out of promot ing extreme sodium reduc tion that will attack us, he said. Its better to focus on healthy lifestyles and overall diets instead of a single ele ment, and that is something everyone can rally around. No one should view this as permission to eat more salt, he said, adding that most people should stay where they are. The studies are in Thurs days New England Journal of Medicine Yusufs is observational, rather than a strict experiment, and has big limitations in its methods. But its size lends strength more than 100,000 people in 17 countries, the largest on this topic. Its also from a general population, not just people at high risk of heart disease, as many past studies have been. Researchers found: Sodium levels generally correlate with the risk of high blood pressure. But this link is strongest when sodium in take is high and wasnt seen at all when consumption is low. The link also is stronger as people age. A different nutrient potassium, found in vege tables and fruits seems to lower blood pressure and heart risks, and offsets sodi ums effect. People who consume 3 to 6 grams of sodium a day (about 8 to 15 grams of salt) had the lowest risk of heart problems or death from any cause during the nearly fouryear study. More or less so dium raised risk. About three-fourths of the worlds population is in the ide al range. Americans average roughly 4 grams a day. Guidelines from various groups for heart disease pre vention recommend 1.5 to 2.4 grams of sodium a day. The American Heart Associa tion advises no more than 1.5 grams. These are now the best data available, Dr. Brian Strom said of the new study. Strom, the chancellor of Rut gers Biomedical and Health Sciences, led an Institute of Medicine panel last year that found little evidence to sup port very low sodium levels. Study questions need for most people to cut salt AP FILE PHOTO Shows salt shakers at a restaurant on May 14, 2013 in Alexandria, Va. CAMPBELL NORTH MCT Pain comes in all shapes and sizes. Whether it arises in the chronic form of ar thritis or the sudden squeeze of cardiac ar rest, pain is the main motivator for a visit to the hospital. Doctors may now have to note the eye col or of their patients be fore choosing a proce dure to treat them. New research has shown that women with dark brown and hazel eyes respond differently to pain than those with light blue and green eyes. During the 2014 an nual meeting of the American Pain Soci ety, Inna Belfer, M.D., Ph.D., an associate professor of anesthe siology at the Univer sity of Pittsburgh, pre sented a study possibly linking eye color to variations in pain tol erance. The study sample consisted of 58 healthy pregnant women at Magee-Womens Hospi tal of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Cen ter. Twenty-four women were placed in the dark group, and the remain ing 34 were placed in the light group. Belfer and her team measured responses to pain be fore and after giving birth through a variety of quantitative standard testing, questionnaires and surveys. The results indicat ed that women in the dark group experi enced more dramatic response to pain with increases in anxiety and sleep disturbances than those in the light group. This was a small pi lot study to start off, said Belfer. All we know now is super limited a hypothesis about why there is a difference at this point would be too optimistic but this could be a next step in nding a genetic back ground of pain. Identifying eye color as a genetic biomarker for pain thresholds will be advantageous for the medical community. Right now we dont know who is going to feel more severe pain after standard surgery or develop chronic pain, said Belfer, This is a problem for both patients who are suffer ing and society. Determining a visi ble indicator of a genet ic signature that pre dicts pain tolerance will help to identify those targeted patients, and the earlier you can iden tify them, you will be in better shape for the fu ture. This is not the rst re search that has related phenotypic differenc es and pain. Multiple studies have correlat ed red hair to resis tance to pain blockers and requirements for higher doses of anes thesia. Belfer and her team also discovered three studies that link eye color to physiolog ical activity. Dr. Belfer plans to continue the research on this topic by expand ing to studies includ ing men, children and larger, more compre hensive distinctions be tween groups. Doctors: Eye color may affect pain tolerance MARIA SESTITO / HALIFAX MEDIA GROUP Model Katie Fitzgeralds eyes are shown before a photo shoot at Wild Olive Salon. This was a small pilot study to start off. All we know now is super limited a hypothesis about why there is a difference at this point would be too optimistic but this could be a next step in finding a genetic background of pain.

According to the coa lition, pulmonary bro sis patients may have an exaggerated or uncon trolled healing response that, over time, produc es excessive brous scar tissue or brosis in the lungs. Its not known what sets this abnormal tissue-repair process in motion. This is worse than a cancer diagnosis, said Kevin Gibson, clinical director of a center at the University of Pitts burgh Medical center that specializes in lung disease. With can cer youre offered treat ment, but with IPF there is no treatment apart from transplant. Fewer than 1 percent of these patients receive them. The two drugs are con sidered breakthrough therapies, meaning the FDA will expedite the process of their devel opment and review. The drugs work by trying to reduce the onset and progression of the disor der, which also destroys blood vessels, diminish ing the ability to circu late oxygen in the body. If theyre approved its great, but the treat ments effects are mod est at best, said Gib son. It is still a long way until a cure. Although the condition has been recognized for the past century, relative ly little is known about pulmonary brosis, the disease course being highly variable and un predictable, he said. MELISSA HEALY MCT In their hunt for a switch in the brain that turns on and off the drive to eat, obesi ty researchers have come up with a bright idea: They have tried a relatively new tech nique to activate or suppress certain neurons electrical activity introducing tiny molecular lights called opto genetics into cells midst. In mice, at least, the tech nique has helped identify both the exact brain cells and complex cascade of process es that prompt the dispatch of a stop eating signal from the brain to the gut. The teams ndings, pub lished recently in the journal Nature Neuroscience under score that satiety signaling is a far from simple process. When a sensation of fullness or of distaste or sickness prompts us to stop eat ing, that appears to be the orchestrated result of the ac tivation of one class of neu rons and the inhibition of a distinct but related class of neurons, all located in the same tiny region. To make matters even more complex, the region of the brain from which satiety sig nals are sent forth the amygdala central nucleus is a center of emotional process ing, specically of fear and anxiety. So researchers needed to test whether ipping the sa tiety switch to on would also turn on emotional angst or malaise. Thats a key concern for those who will someday use these ndings to devise new weight-loss medications. On that question, at least, the news was good. When sci entists turned the lights on and activated a unique clus ter of cells in the amygda la central nucleus associated with satiety, the effect was not increased anxiety, but calm: In lab tests, mice whose sati ety neurons were activated by molecular light were no more likely to show signs of fear than were control mice: They just ate less. A lot less. The researchers were able to glean which neurons pro cess satiety signals by geneti cally engineering light-sensi tivity into certain cells. Then they were able to learn about those cells roles in a given process in this case, sa tiety by shining lights on those cells, activating them. In this case, they learned that satiety signals resulted when one group of cells sensitive to the neurotransmitter GABA are activated, and that they were suppressed when a sec ond group of GABA-sensitive cells were turned on. Gauging the presence and strength of a satiety signal was easy enough: they could see how much or little mice would eat when differ ent clusters of GABA-sen sitive cells in the amygdala were activated. The population of amyg dala central nucleus neurons identied by the researchers as implicated in satiety sug gests that these cells could provide a target for therapeu tic interventions to treat obe sity, anorexia or other eating disorders, the researchers wrote. Weight loss puzzle: Which neurons flip hunger switch? MIKE STOBBE Associated Press NEW YORK A federal pan el says older Americans should start getting a new vaccine against bacteria that cause pneumonia. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices vot ed Wednesday to recommend a dose of the expensive new shot for people 65 and older. The panel said older adults should still get an older pneumococcal vaccine, too. The newer vaccine Pzers Prevnar-13 was licensed in 2011 and costs about $135 per dose. It already is recommended for infants and people with cer tain medical conditions. One dose of an older vac cine which targets a different lineup of bacteria remained the standard for older adults. A Dutch study this year found Prevnar-13 prevented more pneumonia in the elderly. Ofcials believe the new shot could prevent 5,000 illnesses a year. Panel urges second pneumonia vaccine for people 65 and over HALIFAX MEDIA GROUP FILE PHOTO A line forms at the Harris Teeter store as people wait for u and pneumonia vaccinations.

There are 135 days left in the year. Todays Highlight in History: On August 18, 1914, Pres ident Woodrow Wilson issued his Proclamation of Neutrality, aimed at keeping the United States out of World War I, say ing, The United States must be neutral in fact as well as in name during these days that are to try mens souls. HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Aug. 18, 2014 : This year you express your feelings more openly, and your increased vulnera bility draws many people to ward you. In a sense, your openness makes it more difcult for people not to be authentic with you. If you are single, you will be sur rounded by quite a few po tential admirers. You will meet someone who will knock your socks off. If you are attached, the two of you become even better friends, and you will experi ence a great deal of close ness. Use care with nan cial matters, as there could be some confusion between the two of you. GEMINI can be very chatty. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Say what you feel, and you will set the stage for a dynamic interaction. Oth ers could be in the mood to talk. If someone says some thing strange, ask for con rmation. Confusions ten drils might weave through your day. Maintain a sense of humor. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Be more sensitive to the possibilities that sur round you on the homefront. You might be considering re modeling or changing loca tions. Your love of beauty is likely to emerge. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You might not believe the reaction you get from others, but you certainly wont be displeased. An ele ment of confusion could run through your day. Make sure that any important agree ments are signed. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You might feel lazy and self-indulgent. Set the stage and make plans according ly. If you work, try to take a personal day rather than push yourself while in this indifferent mood. A call from a loved one could stir up a lot of feelings. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You instinctively know which way to go when dealing with a friend. Your voice and fa cial expressions are what draw others in. Your upbeat approach allows you to have your way, perhaps more of ten than you might realize. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Deal with someone in power directly. Your instincts guide your thoughts and actions. You could be sur prised by what emerges. Listen to a different point of view more openly. A partner or loved one could surprise you with his or her actions. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You absolutely know what you want. Someone else might not be as predictable as you would like. Look past the obvious, and you will un derstand a lot more about what needs to happen. Dont ght an adjustment on the homefront. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You might nd yourself in a competition to seize the limelight. Before you act, consider the ramica tions; they could be more costly than what you are willing to deal with. Youll get what you want, even if you dont partake in todays games. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21) You might want to try a different path to the same end result. Listen to a suggestion from someone who has a vested interest in the outcome of a pres ent situation. Tension might cause a misunderstanding. Be clear in your communi cation. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19) Your ability to or ganize and be effective will be tested. Know that there is a possibility of a misun derstanding. Clarify what is being said, and dont allow someone or a situation to distract you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Defer to someone you trust. Be aware that this person might have a bit of an attitude or seem preoc cupied. As a result, he or she might not be able to give as much helpful feed back as usual. Conrm a nancial agreement. Play time! PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You could be pushing a lot harder than usual in try ing to avoid a personal mat ter. Understand that you need to deal with this sit uation before you can free yourself up to enjoy your life and be more present with others. HOROSCOPES TODAY IN HISTORY DEAR ABBY: When my husband is sick or needs to have sur gery, he refuses to tell his family and doesnt want me to. This puts me in a very awkward position. Im damned if I do tell them because he will be upset with me, and damned if I dont because his fam ily wont trust me, and I dont want things that way. Invariably, when he gets home, he calls his family and tells them all about his surgery, and Im left looking like I withheld the informa tion, when its not me at all. I have asked him what if he DIES? His family will be upset not only by the tragedy, but also at me for having kept them in the dark. Im considering leav ing him over this. I dont deserve this from him. And no, he wont see a counselor and I wont do it alone, so do you have any other ad vice than that? IN A DIFFICULT POSITION DEAR IN A DIFFICULT POSITION: You should not be made to feel that youre stuck in the middle. It would be nice if your hus band understood that when he is sick enough to be hospitalized that YOU might need the emotional support his family could offer. But since its not going to happen, he should make plain to his fami ly that HE prefers to be the bearer of this kind of news, and the rea son they arent hearing it from you is because he wants it that way. DEAR ABBY: I love my sister and enjoy chat ting with her, but our schedules make it dif cult to connect. When we do speak, her hus band often interjects or starts another con versation with her, as if she isnt on the phone. She also settles spats between her toddlers and other things her husband could man age while were talking. When this happens I say, I can tell youre tied up. Can we talk later when things settle down? Her reply: We can talk now. Things are ALWAYS crazy around here. As it stands, we speak only a few times a year, and Id like her undi vided attention. I have tried bringing this up a number of times, but she feels life doesnt stand still for anyone. Is it too much to ask for 30 minutes, three times a year? We live several states apart, so having a face-to-face isnt an option. Any help would be appreci ated, because Im hurt. MISSING MY SISTER IN GEORGIA DEAR MISSING YOUR SISTER: I dont blame you for feeling hurt, because apparent ly your sister isnt in terested in having the kind of contact you would like. It may be that her husband is ultra-controlling hence the constant in terruptions from him or that her house hold is so disorganized shes in the middle of a whirlwind. If you havent al ready, write her a let ter and express your feelings. Its one way of getting your thoughts across without be ing interrupted. I dont think 30 minutes three times a year is a lot to ask of her. Propose set ting a specic time to talk when her kids and husband arent around. Then cross your ngers and hope she sees the light.
