He suggests that be cause of the vast number of housing developments and other urban devel opments, which is much larger than all of the nat ural parks combined that as homeowners, we must try to reestablish and we can reestablish habitat for wildlife, she said. The idea of a more nat ural habitat also appeals to Winter Garden resi dent Linda Wilinski, who saw a yer about the fes tival and decided to make the trip to Leesburg on Sunday, the last day of the festival. This is a beautiful op portunity for people to come out and nd na ture-friendly plants that are not treated with pes ticides that actually ben et butteries and bees, because they are the ones that feed us, Wilinski said. She snapped photos of her favorite wildow ers and other Florida-na tive plants that she would love to have around her home. I want everything, but my yard is not big enough, she said. Venetian Gardens was a new venue site for the weekends Wings and Wildowers Festival, and it provided more space and activities for chil dren, along with the Leesburg Community Center for indoor activ ities and talks from na ture experts. The festi val was hosted at Hickory Point in Tavares in previ ous years. The festival has been going great, said Kel ly LaFollette, communi cations director for Lake County, who joined fel low organizers in esti mating a total of 3,000 participants taking part in the weekend event by the time it closed late Sunday afternoon. I think the new ven ue has been outstanding this year and it has been able to accommodate a lot more people. We are getting a lot of great feed back, she said. Birding enthusiasts told her that they loved the events checklist of the best birding spots in the county. I heard one person who came back and said that they saw 40 differ ent bird species on one of our eld trips, said La Follette. So they are get ting to see a lot of neat and interesting things.

Festivalgoers are shown on Sunday by the display of native plants. feeling the effects after arriving in Dallas will be the only one. The government took measures this past week to ensure hospitals are ready. Despite some ini tial missteps in Dallas, tried-and-true methods are underway: track ing everyone who came into contact with the in fected man and isolat ing anyone who shows symptoms. What to know about Ebola in America: THERES GOING TO BE A LOT OF TALK Expect to hear news reports in the coming days about people who are being cared for as potential Ebola cases. That doesnt mean they have the disease. Doctors and hospitals are isolating individuals they believe could be at risk. Thats based on a combination of their symptoms and recent travel from a country where Ebola is present. The Centers for Dis ease Control and Pre vention has consult ed with hospitals about more than 100 potential ly suspicious cases in re cent months. More than a dozen were worrisome enough to merit Ebo la blood tests. Only the Dallas patient had Ebola. HOW IT SPREADS Ebola doesnt spread easily like the u, a cold or measles. The virus isnt air borne. Instead, its in a sick persons bodily u ids, such as blood, vom it, urine, semen or saliva. Bodily uids arent contagious until the in fected person begins to feel sick. The initial symptoms are easily confused with other ill nesses, however: fever, headaches, u-like body aches and abdominal pain. Vomiting, diarrhea and sometimes bleed ing follow as the disease progresses, increasing the risk to others. In West Africa, the dis ease has spread quickly to family members who tended the sick or han dled their bodies after death, and infected doc tors and nurses working under punishing con ditions, without proper equipment. Bed sheets or clothing contaminat ed by bodily uids also spread the disease. CAN YOU CATCH IT ON A BUS OR PLANE? Its very unlikely. To be on the safe side, the CDC denes con tact with the disease as spending a prolonged period of time within 3 feet of someone ill with Ebola, a distance de signed to protect health workers from projectile vomiting. But health ofcials havent seen real world cases of the virus spread by casual contact in public, such as sitting next to someone on a bus, said Dr. Tom Frie den, the CDC director. All of our experience with Ebola in Africa the last four decades indi cates direct contact is how it spreads, he said, and only direct contact with someone who is ill with Ebola. Passengers who ew on the same plane as the Dallas patient, ve days before he devel oped symptoms, are not considered at risk by the CDC. Nor are the school mates of children who came in contact with the infected Dallas man, but showed no symptoms of illness while in class. As a precaution in case they become sick and therefore conta gious, the children who were in contact with the infected man were pulled from school and are being monitored for symptoms. Initially, about 100 people were assessed for potential exposure. Health ofcials said Fri day that 50 were still be ing monitored, with 10 considered at the most risk during the diseases 21-day incubation pe riod. Four family mem bers who shared their apartment with the pa tient are under quaran tine. Outside those cir cles, the odds of get ting infected within the U.S. remain minuscule, health authorities say.

When the justices formally open their new term Monday, Roberts will be beginning his 10th year at the head of the court, and the fth with the same lineup of justices. He has been part of a ve-justice con servative majority that has rolled back campaign nance limits, up held abortion restrictions and gen erally been skeptical of the consid eration of race in public life. But his court has taken a differ ent path in cases involving gay and lesbian Americans, despite his op position most of the time. The courts record on gay rights is comparable to its embrace of civ il rights for African-Americans in the 1950s and 1960s under Chief Justice Earl Warren, said Universi ty of Chicago law professor David Strauss. The court will go down in history as one that was on the fron tiers of establishing rights for gays and lesbians, Strauss said. The justices passed up their rst opportunity last week to add gay marriage cases to their calendar. But they will have several more chanc es in the coming weeks to accept ap peals from ofcials in Indiana, Okla homa, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin who are trying to preserve their state bans on same-sex marriage. Those prohibitions fell one after the other following the high courts June 2013 decision that struck down part of a federal law that de ned marriage as between a man and a woman. On the courts plate in the new term are cases involving: religious, employment and housing discrimination. the drawing of political dis tricts in Alabama and Arizona. a dispute between Congress and the president over passports that is heavy with Middle East pol itics. a faulty trafc stop over a cars broken brake light in North Caroli na. the use of a law to prevent doc ument shredding against a sher man accused of throwing under sized red grouper overboard. the prosecution of a self-styled rapper whose Facebook postings threatened his estranged wife, an FBI agent and area schools. Beyond individual cases on the docket, court observers across the political spectrum are using the milestone 10th year to offer assess ments of Roberts and the court he leads. The liberal Constitutional Ac countability Center has embarked on a yearlong study of the chief jus tice, noting that he said at his con rmation hearings he would pur sue restraint and unanimity on the bench. Some conservatives are dis mayed by what they see as Rob erts unwillingness to take big steps on key issues, and they have yet to forgive his vote to uphold Obamas health care law in 2012. With the court closely divided on key issues, a change on the bench can mean the difference between victory and defeat. That was indeed the case with the replacement of Justice Sandra Day OConnor with Justice Samuel Alito, affecting out comes in cases on abortion, race and campaign nance.

Staff Report Umatilla city council members Tuesday night will consider a possi ble moratorium on medical marijua na dispensaries should Amendment 2 pass in the Nov. 4 general election. Some jurisdictions are preparing ordinances worded to allow growth and sales operations to exist in lim ited zoning categories, while others are considering moratoriums on all aspects of the subject, states a staff memorandum to the board. At a Eustis City Commission work shop last week, the board there gave staff approval to pursue a ninemonth moratorium on medical mari juana sales to provide sufcient time for the state of Florida and the courts to establish a regulatory framework to provide a basis for the citys subse quent, detailed regulations. Final ap proved is expected prior to Nov. 4. Amendment 2 calls for the cre ation of treatment centers for quali ed medical marijuana users. In other action Tuesday night, Umatilla City Council members will be asked by staff to continue waiv ing fees associated with annexation requests. This waiver has been in ef fect since August 2011 but expired last month. In the past two years, ve property owners have received the fee waiver of $3,120 per parcel and their lands are now inside the city. Two of these are non-taxable sites. However, even though the city lost out on a total of $15,600 in one-time only annexation fees for all ve par cels, property taxes on the three tax able parcels have generated almost this much $13,180 and will continue to do so, a staff memoran dum states.

Purel lo said the organiza tion relies on a network of about 650 pilots who volunteer their time and services and use their own personal planes. This is somebody that if they are not treat ed, they will die in the next few months, he said of the passengers. And they are not just going to go to the hos pital once, theyve got to go 10, 20, 30 or 50 times. A lot of peo ple dont know about Angel Flight. We are there if they need to go a long distance for medical help, or if they get an unusual disease and their local doctors tell them that there is no cure for what they have within hundreds of miles we are able to provide transporta tion for them. Headquartered at Leesburg International Airport, Purello said An gel Flight Southeast has been an incredible ex perience. The appreciation of our passengers is unbe lievable. Every day we are at least making their lives more comfortable and a lot of days we are saving peoples lives by doing this, when they have no other options, he said. Some passengers rely ing on Angel Flight live in Lake County and re quire surgeries or doc tor visits with special ists in other states. We have had a num ber of babies born with crooked skulls and when that happens, they make a helmet for them and there are only a few plac es in the country that specialize in this, Purel lo said. The helmet forc es the skull to grow in the proper way, and it is hap pening so rapidly that they need adjustments every week. Angel Flight also has come to the aid of a mother in the Panhan dle who was driving her baby daughter 570 miles down to Miami for one of the helmets. The mother broke down a couple of times in the Everglades and then she found out about us, he said, re calling the child was own to Miami every week for a year. We have a list of about three dozen peo ple who are waiting for a heart, a liver, a kid ney, a lung or maybe two lungs, and that can happen in the middle of the night, Purello said. So that phone call is, We have this heart that is ready, but you only have three hours to get that person here. Oth erwise, they dont get it, even though they have waited now for the last year to get this organ. Angel Flight South east coordinates ights for people who live in Florida, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Bahamas. Moftt is our No. 1 destination in Tampa, the third largest cancer center in the U.S., he said. Basically, when they (doctors) cant g ure out how to treat you anymore, and maybe youre getting to stage 4 cancer and that is where they are going to send you, to Moftt, and they work miracles all the time. Flights for passen gers who require travel of greater distances of ten are split into short er segments requiring multiple pilots. Purello rst learned about Angel Flight when he was making frequent trips to Marthas Vine yard and Nantucket for dinner outings and en joying his pilots license. He saw a brochure for Angel Flight with a child on the cover. I realized that I could be doing something more with my license than just going to get dinner in Nantucket for the night, Purello said. He has found tak ing Mitsy with him on ights provides a sense of calm for the passen gers as they pet her in the back seat. They denitely love having her there, he said. The CEO aspires to have more volunteer pi lots get involved with Angel Flight. Approximately onethird of our pilots are retired, which the oth er two-thirds take time from work. These are doctors, lawyers, busi ness owners, he said. They take that one day off from work be cause these ights take place generally during the week. They become very committed to it and very passionate about it. They love to y, so it is a good excuse to y and to give back.

In both daily response and in emergency situations, strong and reliable communication is just as critical as the information received from a 911 caller, Greg Holcomb, Lake County Public Safety E911 coordinator, said in a press release. By adding Florida Hospital Waterman to the net work we will improve the orga nization and speed of transition ing care from rst responders to the emergency department. The 800 MHz County-wide Communication System has been in place since 2009 and features 18 tower sites strategi cally located across the coun ty to provide seamless, reliable and instant communication, ac cording to Kim Milne, market ing and communications direc tor for the hospital. The unied system helps facilitate that all participating agencies share the same two-way communication network, practice uniform com munication protocols and utilize the same technology, she said. The safety of our patients during an emergency is reliant on our ability to respond quick ly and competently, David Ot tati, the hospitals president and CEO, said in the release. Join ing this communication net work will enhance our ability to ensure the health and safety of all in our community. The Lake County Communi cation Technology Division is responsible for operating and maintaining the county-wide communication system, which consists of more than 3,200 mobile-mounted, portable (hand-carried), aircraft, marine and dispatch console radios countywide, including the he licopter base station located at Florida Hospital Waterman.

Three top former gov ernment leaders who devised the 2008 nan cial bailouts Hen ry Paulson, Timothy Geithner and Ben Ber nanke are set to testi fy this week in a lawsuit over the governments rescue of the insurance giant AIG. Six years ago, their rescue plan revived AIG, protected its farung nancial part ners and helped save the nancial system. Yet AIGs former CEO, 89-year old Maurice Greenberg, argues that the governments bail out was illegitimate and is demanding roughly $40 billion in damages for shareholders. This despite the fact that Greenberg orches trated a 2010 deal in which he unloaded $278 million in AIG shares that his holding compa ny owned a windfall that might have been impossible without the governments interven tion. The lawsuit alleges that the bailout violated the Constitutions Fifth Amendment by taking control of AIG without just compensation. Greenberg objects to the governments takeover of a company approach ing bankruptcy in ex change for what would eventually become $180 billion-plus in taxpay er-backed loans. Many legal experts deem the lawsuit a long shot. But the trial serves as a reminder that few were satised by the governments response to the crisis even those who, like Green berg, fared far better than the millions who lost homes and jobs. For Greenberg, the case represents a chance to make the for mer Federal Reserve chairman (Bernanke) and two past Treasury secretaries (Paulson and Geithner) defend a landmark action made at the most perilous moment for the U.S. nancial system since the Great Depression.

The poll found that Democrats tend to ex press more faith in the governments ability to protect them than do Republicans.

Thirteen years after the Sept. 11 attacks, and as the Obama admin istration conducts air strikes against Islamic State militants in Syr ia and Iraq, only 1 in 5 in the poll say they are extremely or very con dent the government can keep them safe from another terror ist attack. Four in 10 ex press moderate con dence. While there has not been a large-scale ter rorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11, roughly onethird of Americans say they are not too con dent or not condent at all in the governments ability to prevent an other. Bill Denison, 85, who lives in Bradenton, Flor ida, is among the mi nority who thinks the government is doing a good job keeping citi zens safe, at least when it comes to preventing domestic attacks.

POLL FROM PAGE A1 JOSE ANTONIO RIVERA Associated Press IGUALA, Mexico Authorities examining a clandestine mass grave have found the bodies too badly burned to de termine quickly whether they are among 43 stu dents unaccounted for following a deadly clash between police and pro testers a week ago, a law yer for families of the missing said Sunday. Attorney Vidulfo Ro sales told The Associat ed Press that ofcials also had not determined how many bodies are in the six burial pits discovered on a hillside on the out skirts of Iguala, a city in southern Mexico where a series of violent incidents last weekend resulted in six shooting deaths and more than two dozen people injured. Rosales said relatives of 37 of the missing young people already had provided DNA sam ples that will be used to determine if the recov ered remains belong to any of the students. As investigators worked at the grave site, up to 2,000 protesters blocked a main highway in the Guerrero state capital of Chilpancingo demanding justice. You took them alive, we want them returned alive, read a huge ban ner hung across the road linking Mexico City and Acapulco. Jesus Lopez, an Aca pulco street vendor whose 19-year-old son Giovani is among the missing, said he hoped the remains werent those of the students. Other relatives told us that (the remains) were burned, and that they couldnt be the kids, Lopez said.

The commission said in a statement Sunday that it had warned about the delicate situation in Guerrero, a southern state where pover ty feeds social unrest and drug gangs clash over territory. Anger over the dis covery of the graves exploded Saturday night when a group of young people from the Aytozinapa teach ers college attended by the missing pro tested outside the gov ernors residence in Chilpancingo. They threw Molotov cock tails and overturned a car after state ofcials told them they would not be allowed to trav el to the graves to de termine if the bodies are those of their miss ing classmates.

Box 490007 Leesburg, FL 34749-0007 By fax to: 325-365-1951 I make no secret of the fact that Im (an imperfect) Cath olic. That makes for interest ing conversations with strang ers who only know me by what Ive written, particularly former Catholics who still cant believe I go to Mass. So many of them wonder why I dont speak out against the horrible scourge of child abuse that became one of the preferred media obsessions over the past decade and a half. I understand why they ask, because to people whose only knowledge of the church was gleaned from the Baltimore Cat echism back in the 1960s, before they abandoned the pews (and the Colts abandoned Baltimore,) or from the orid media reports aimed at increasing the ratings, my church is a hotbed of pedo philes. Naturally, then, anyone who stays has an obligation to call out the criminals. Well, I have called them out, as have many good Catholics who want to disassociate themselves from evil men. After all, the cov er-up is worse than the crime, as Richard Nixon and crew found out. What I wont do is tar an en tire group with the taint of crimi nality, because there arent enough Scarlet Letters in the alphabet to cover societys bad guys. For that reason, what Im about to say should not be tak en as a broad-based attack on the LGBT community, although you can bet it will be. Ever since I dared to say same-sex marriage was an oxymoron and a consti tutional fraud, there hasnt been much love lost between me and the community. And thats OK, because childless, middle-aged homophobic women like me will just die out within the next few decades leaving the world safe for the love that dare not speak its name below 1,000 decibels. OK, Ill get serious now. Be cause laughter is no longer ap propriate when considering the reaction of far too many in the LGBT community to the alleged gay-bashing that occurred three weeks ago in Philadelphia. I can understand being livid at the idea that one of your own has been targeted and mauled by a marauding band of savages. It makes perfect sense to remem ber past grievances and tie them to a case which conveniently ts your social nightmare: white, straight Catholics out to hurt you. Of course, not every Catho lic hates every homosexual, and not every person who hates ho mosexuals is Catholic, but that doesnt t the sound bite scenar io too well. Ironically, one of the alleged assailants in the now-in famous attack is a woman, so there goes a handy stereotype. But why let the facts get in the way of a social media circus? The problem is not that people are angry at an attack that was possibly motivated by homopho bia. Thats human, normal and understandable. What is upset ting is the reaction of so many in the LGBT community to this attack, and the reaction to that that reaction. When word of the attack was made public shortly after Sep tember 11, nimble ngers start ed tapping away on keyboards to smoke out the identities of the assailants. That, in and of itself makes me very nervous, a sort of virtual posse comitatus look ing to round up the guilty in a very 21st century way. A video of the beating, plus some still pho tos were circulated until, lo and behold, some of the people in volved in the melee were identi ed. One of the accused, Kather ine Knott, had her life put under a microscope and has been bru talized in the blogosphere. While I cant say for sure that the peo ple calling for her to be raped are members of the LGBT com munity, Im fairly certain theyre at least straight sympathiz ers because Ive had exactly the same vitriol thrown at me in the past when I opposed the end of Dont Ask, Dont Tell or ques tioned the legal legitimacy of same-sex unions. Again, I understand the insults (but, for future reference, ho mophobe doesnt have an f.) What I cant understand is the hatred and bigotry displayed by so many in the LGBT community. Take my friend John Featherman, for example. An outspoken icono clast, John happens to be a mem ber of the GOP who supports gay rights, but he also understands the principles of due process and equal protection much better than the folks who attacked him vi ciously after he wrote a piece crit ical of the community on Philly. com, the web portal for the Phila delphia Inquirer and Daily News Thats troubling. Whats also troubling is the fact that the home addresses of the three defendants have been disseminated online. Im guess ing its not so they can be includ ed on LAMBDAs Christmas card list. Just as we ask for Catholics to denounce pedophile priests, and just as we ask Muslims to vili fy terrorists, it is legitimate to ex pect members of the LGBT com munity to criticize their own.

Flowers MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE Members of LGBT community must be willing to criticize their own F ederal ofcials announced Tuesday that a passenger who ew from Liberia to Dal las last month had become the rst per son to be diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S. On Wednesday came word that health ofcials are monitoring several more people for signs of illness, including ve school children who had contact with the rst Ebola patient. Yes, that is frightening. Ebola is deadly. There is no cure or vaccine. The Dallas case or cas es probably wont be the last. This lethal virus has swept through West Africa and an oceans expanse is no shield in the age of jetliners. Scary as it is, however, this unfolding sto ry also should reassure Americans how swiftly and effectively U.S. public health workers can move to contain a deadly virus: Workers are tracking those who came in contact with the patient, who was diagnosed with Ebola sever al days after he arrived in Texas to visit family members. The patient showed no signs of the disease fever, nausea and vomiting be fore he boarded the plane or while he was en route. Theres zero chance that he infected other passengers, says Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, because he showed no signs of infection on the ight. Unlike oth er viruses, Ebola spreads mainly via bodily uids, not through the air. So how can Americans reduce their risk of exposure? Youve heard this advice before. Wash your hands. Dont touch your face. University of Arizona researchers showed how quickly a virus can race through the of ce: A door contaminated with a virus spreads the germ to about half of the employees in an ofce in four hours, The Wall Street Journal re ports. The hand is quicker than the sneeze, a microbiology professor told the paper. Ebola doesnt infect people through the air, but it remains a swift foe. The virus has burned through West Africa, killing thousands. Left unchecked it could infect more than 1 million people in that region by January, CDC ofcials recently predicted. But that is the worst-case scenario. It neednt be prophetic. Four American doctors and aid workers air lifted out of Africa to receive treatment in the U.S. have survived. Thats an excellent batting average against a virus that is lethal in Africa about half the time. The Dallas patients con dition has been upgraded to serious but sta ble from critical. The CDC also reports that quick, effective action by doctors and other health workers in Nigeria has apparently brought an outbreak under control, with no new cases reported in more than 21 days.

But this year, chicken days con sist of three baked chicken tenders covered in whole-grain breading. The fries are baked too, and thats not the only healthy change thats hit school menus. They took away the fried chick en. They took away all the good food and gave us healthy food, said Northwestern High School ninth grader Ariel Bollnow, joking that shed like to have a long talk with Michelle Obama about her con cerns with the new school food. The rst lady advocated for the federal Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, which fully went into effect for the 2013-14 school year. Schools have gradually worked to implement new school lunch menus in recent years, complying with re strictions on how many calories can be served in a meal, the levels of so dium, sugar and fat in the food, and how many servings of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, protein and dairy must be avail able to students. This year, all snacks sold in cafe terias a la carte lines, school vend ing machines and any other place during school hours also must meet the federal healthy food guidelines. Northwestern food services direc tor Renee Hullinger told the Koko mo Tribune the smart snack phase of the federal regulations has been the most challenging to follow. With the new regulations on all foods sold in schools, the nutrition stipulations are so strict that our hands are tied in what we can sell, she said, noting that new kitchen equipment was needed to re place deep fryers that can no lon ger be used. The gov ernment made all these changes, but they didnt give us money to do the job. Part of the difculty comes from a lack of available products that meet the nutrition requirements. The vendors school food service depart ments previously worked with are struggling to come up with modi ed versions of their food products. Hullinger said right now, the snack options at Northwestern are ap proximately one-tenth of what they used to be. Manufacturers have worked as quickly as they could to change to meet these new regulations. Theres so few foods meeting these regu lations, and were all trying to get them, she said. A lot of these foods werent available at the beginning of the school year. Our vending has plummeted, Hullinger continued, though she added it is too early in the year to have an accurate count on how their sales will compare to last year. Other school corporations report ed similar difculties in simply nd ing enough qualied snacks to keep their shelves stocked. Kokomo School Corp. has lost some of its outside vendors who used to serve food at the high school. So far, Pizza Hut is the only one that has been able to meet the federal nutrition guidelines, and its Rule requiring healthy foods for students presents challenge for schools Snacktime struggle Schools have gradually worked to implement new school lunch menus in recent years, complying with restrictions on how many calories can be served in a meal, the levels of sodium, sugar and fat in the food, and how many servings of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, protein and dairy must be available to students. JULIE DEARDORFF MCT Whenever someone asks former U.S. Surgeon Gen eral Richard Carmona how his day is going, he typical ly responds with, Every day is the same! Im ght ing aging and gravity. But unlike many of the rest of us, the 64-year-old doctor has a strategy in place. To combat the natu ral decline that occurs with aging, he works to protect his brain, through exercise, nutrition, sleep and mind fulness. Carmonas cognitive health secrets are detailed in his new book, Canyon Ranch 30 Days to a Better Brain, which explains the anatomy of the brain, the effects of stress and toxins and the often overlooked importance of sleep, and provides advice on how to keep the mind agile and sharp. The son of Puerto Ri can immigrants, Carmo na dropped out of school at age 16 and enlisted in the Army at the peak of the Vietnam War. The experi ence was transformative: He went on to become a paramedic, nurse, police ofcer, doctor and hospi tal administrator before being nominated as one of the worlds most inuen tial leaders in health care. Carmona, president of the Canyon Ranch Insti tute, recently spoke about why he believes the key to health lies in building a better brain and why exer cise is still the best medi cine.

The only place I could af ford was a small studio out in the burbs, said Christopher Morris, a 6-foot-9 former col lege swimmer who no lon ger has the energy to work in restaurant management. He cant afford a car. Without one, getting to doctors and other medical resources was difcult. Its very import ant to get to those appoint ments, he said. When an apartment be came available at Clare Mid town, a Minneapolis res idence for low-income people with HIV/AIDS, Mor ris jumped at the opportu nity. In June, he and Pickles, his elderly rescue spaniel, moved into their new home, which is conveniently locat ed near a light-rail station. Its been a godsend, said Morris. I love it. Ive been through a rough road. My prayers denitely have been answered. His new neighbors have also traveled rough roads. For many, Clare Midtown is a stable home after life on the streets or in and out of shel ters, said Chuck Peterson, executive director of Clare Housing, a nonprot that provides housing and sup port services for those liv ing with HIV/AIDS and their families. Last year, 64 per cent of Clare Housing resi dents came from a long-term homeless situation. This isnt what they expect to see. For some residents, its overwhelming, said Pe terson of the stylish mod ern building, which looks a lot like other desirable, new apartment complexes in the Twin Cities. Affordable housing con jures up images of drea ry, institutional structures, not prize-winning architec ture. Theres nothing dreary or institutional about Clare Midtown. In fact, it did win a prize: the 2014 Affordable Housing Design Award from American Institute ofAr chitects Minnesota and the McKnight Foundation, beat ing out 12 other entries. The awards program, now is in its third year, grew out of a McKnight initiative to assess the role of design in creat ing affordable housing thats good for residents and for the greater community. Nobody would drive by and think its an affordable (housing) building, said ar chitect Todd Rhoades of Cer mak Rhoades Architects, St. Paul, which designed the project. A panel of jurors evaluated the local projects on sever al criteria: responsiveness to the needs of the client pop ulation, community connec tion, long-term asset value and overall design quality.

As we get older, if we dont exercise our biceps, they atrophy. If you dont continue to stimulate the mind, it does tend to undergo atrophy. MRI images show the brain shrinks if you dont use it. It requires that you devel op the neural network. Its not clear whether a crossword puzzle is bet ter than a video game. But generally, challeng ing and stimulating the brain with new things is good. Q: Why is sleep so im portant? A: People are staying alert and active through out the 24-hour cycle and dont get enough rest. The brain needs time to rest, so it can re plenish itself. Otherwise it leads to performance decrement. Q: Whats perfor mance decrement? A: Its a real measure of the brains need to get rest. Youre not as sharp as you should be, and your analytical abilities are off. If youre driving a car, you need quickness to avoid a collision with someone else who is do ing something stupid. Without sleep, our ana lytical ability and judg ment decline. Of all the variables we talk about (with respect to brain health), sleep is prob ably the one most dis missed or overlooked. People often dont equate performance with the ability to rest the brain, and the con sequence of that is per formance decrement. Q: Do you have a quirky health habit? A: I look at my pos ture at 8 a.m. and com pare it to 8 p.m. At night Im usually all hunched over, which can lead to carpel tunnel syn BRAIN FROM PAGE B1 drome and back or neck problems.

They really worked well with us on more than a year of planning to get an acceptable (product), Lazar said. Where the vendors are running into trouble is the sodium or the satu rated fat. Snack items and side dishes sold a la carte must have 230 milli grams of sodium or less, and entre items sold a la carte are limited to 480 milligrams of sodi um per serving. School food cannot have any trans-fat, and saturated fat must count for less than 10 percent of an items calories. There are specic times when exemptions from the guidelines are allowed. The Kokomo Area Career Centers cu linary arts program runs the Kokomo Confec tioners Company, and the treats sold there do not have to comply with the federal regulations because the store op erates outside school hours. Similarly, conces sion stands at athletic events are exempt, and Indiana schools are al lowed to have two fund raisers a year that sell food items that dont meet the school food nutrition standards. Kokomo Schools communications di rector Dave Barnes said administrators get more questions from parents about the school food now, but they are more accept ing when they realize its a federal mandate. We saw this coming and even with the sodi um, weve been cutting back every year, Lazar said, adding that Koko mo took out its deep fry ers about 10 years ago. Weve really been pro active on this. But prod uct-wise its difcult for these companies.

Its rst, Clare Apartments in northeast Minne apolis, also designed by Cermak Rhoades, opened in 2004 and is more traditional in style, Rhoades said. For Clare Midtown, the team wanted an upbeat modern look. Because of its site, on a corner near the light-rail station, the building is highly vis ible from all sides. It doesnt have a front and a back. It fronts everywhere, Rhoad es said. It was import ant to create a building the neighborhood feels proud of. Preserving green space also was an im portant part of the de sign, both to provide a healing environment for the residents and to present an appealing face to the neighbor hood. Theres a peren nial garden, walking path and patio, all shaded by a giant cot tonwood tree. This isnt an institu tion, said Peterson. It was critical to create an environment that was a home.

HIV FROM PAGE B2 JUDY PERES MCT New technologies, and a lit tle help from the U.S. Supreme Court, have made it possible for large numbers of women to nd out whether they carry genet ic mutations that increase their risk of breast cancer a devel opment warmly welcomed by experts in the eld. But the availability and relative affordability of multigene-panel tests can also lead to anxiety and confusion about what course of action to choose, because the risk associated with many of those genes remains unknown. Genetic testing holds a lot of potential and a whole lot of un certainty, said Beth Peshkin, a professor of oncology and senior genetic counselor at Georgetown Universitys Lombardi Compre hensive Cancer Center in Wash ington. The more genes we test, the more variants were likely to nd, explained Peshkin. A re cent study found that about 40 percent of people who under went panel testing had variants, or genetic changes, that we dont know how to interpret. In 2013 the Supreme Court in validated Myriad Genetics pat ents on the two major genes that predispose women to breast and ovarian cancer, ruling that hu man genes cannot be patented. Since then, several compa nies have begun testing for mu tations in those genes, BRCA1 and BRCA2, which are respon sible for about 80 percent of he reditary breast cancer cases; and the genes have been incorporat ed into panels that use so-called next-generation sequencing to test for multiple genes simulta neously. The problem arises because some of the mutations detect ed in those panels are relative ly rare and scientists do not yet know how much additional risk they confer, if any. In August, the New England Journal of Medicine published a study showing that certain muta tions in a gene called PALB2 were associated with a lifetime risk of between 33 percent (for carriers with no family history of breast cancer) and 58 percent (for those with a strong family history). Thats similar to the risk associ ated with a BRCA2 mutation, but lower than that for BRCA1. The average lifetime risk for an American woman is about 12 percent. The vast majori ty of breast cancer cases are not linked to any known hereditary factor. Investigators from 14 cen ters around the world pooled data from all of their families with PALB2 mutations, said Dr. Jane Churpek, co-director of the Comprehensive Cancer Risk and Prevention Program at Univer sity of Chicago Medicine. So, for the rst time, we had a large enough series to get an estimate (of risk) for carriers of mutations in this gene. The hope is well see similar efforts for each gene on these panels. When actress Angelina Jo lie announced last year that she carried a BRCA1 mutation, her choice was relatively straightfor ward. She decided to have a pre ventive double mastectomy after her mother died of ovarian can cer and Jolie learned she herself had up to an 87 percent chance of getting the disease. Some breast cancer experts noted that the Angelina Jolie ef fect the dramatic upsurge in Breast cancer genetic screening offers vital information, uncertainty STEPHANIE DOWELL / MCT Twin sisters Kristen Maurer, left, and Kelly McCarthy, who turned 35 Thursday, were diagnosed with breast cancer several years ago and genetic testing for both sisters showed no BRCA mutation.

COOPER Associated Press PORTLAND, Ore. If you purchased caf feine-infused un derwear because of promises it will make you thinner, federal reg ulators say you were hoodwinked but at least you can get your money back. The Federal Trade Commission an nounced Monday that two companies Norm Thompson Out tters of Oregon and Wacoal America Inc. of New Jersey have agreed to refund $1.5 million to consumers who purchased shape wear that supposedly can reduce cellulite and fat because it is infused with caffeine, vitamin E and other things. Caffeine-infused shapewear is the latest weight-loss brew con cocted by marketers, Jessica Rich, director of the FTCs Bureau of Consumer Protection, said in a statement. If someone says you can lose weight by wearing the clothes they are sell ing, steer clear. Neither company could be reached for comment. Norm Thompson, based in Hillsboro, Ore gon, sold womens bike shorts, tights and leg gings made of a fab ric called Lytess for $49 to $79, according to the FTCs complaint. The company claimed a woman could take 2 inches off the hips and an inch off the thighs in less than a month without effort. No diets or pills. Lose inches just by wear ing these cellulite-slim ming Lytess leggings, the company said in an online catalog, accord ing to the FTC. The unique fabric is infused with caffeine to metab olize fat. The claims are not backed up by scientic tests, the FTC said. The company also false ly claimed that the gar ments were backed by television personality Dr. Oz. The FTC says Wacoal, based in Lyndhurst, New Jersey, made sim ilar claims about its iP ants underwear for women, which sold for $44 to $85. In negotiated settle ments, Norm Thomp son agreed to pay $230,000 and Wacoal America $1.3 million, which the FTC says it will use to provide re funds for consumers. The companies also will be prohibited from claiming that their caf feinated garments cause weight or fat loss, or a reduction of body size. The Federal Trade Commission is accept ing public comment on the proposed settle ment until Oct. 29. After that, the commission will decide whether to make the proposed set tlements permanent.

B4 DAILY COMMERCIAL Monday, October 6, 2014 testing for breast can cer genes that followed her story was a good thing. It raised aware ness of a problem about which something could be done. A study pre sented in early Sep tember at a meeting of the American Soci ety of Clinical Oncolo gy found that referrals for genetic testing at one large medical cen ter doubled in the six months following Jolies announcement. But BRCA1 is a well-studied gene for which there is good ev idence of the associat ed risk. Although there can be many different mutations in that gene, and they dont all con fer the same risk, re searchers have investi gated most of them and have a pretty good idea how they affect a per sons chances of getting breast cancer. Over a million wom en have been tested for BRCA, said Peshkin. Very few variants (of unknown signicance) remain. Geneticist MaryClaire King, who dis covered BRCA1, stirred controversy recently by calling for all Amer ican woman over 30 to be tested for BRCA1 and BRCA2. (Current guide lines for healthy wom en say only those with a family history should be referred for genetic counseling and testing.) But King added that women should be told only about mutations that are associated with known cancer risk. Many of the newer gene mutations have not been studied in enough carriers for sci entists to be able to quantify the risk associ ated with them. So learning she has one of those mutations would almost certain ly cause a woman con cern and anxiety, but it wouldnt provide enough information for her to make an in formed decision about how to proceed. Only by knowing the likelihood that some one who carries a giv en mutation will actual ly develop breast cancer can a doctor help a pa tient decide if its appro priate to take certain risk-reduction steps.

Starting for Josh Mc Cown (injured thumb) a week earlier, Glennon led the Bucs to an im pressive victory at Pitts burgh. He nearly got his second straight win where the Bucs have not won since the last game of the 2010 regular sea son. That was also the last time the Saints lost in the Superdome with coach Sean Payton roaming the sideline. Tampa Bay held a two-score lead early in the fourth quarter after Glennons 9-yard pass to Robert Herron. The drive went 81 yards in 10 plays, highlighted by a 34-yard completion to Vincent Jackson. But the Saints re sponded with Thomas 27-yard run. A two-point conver sion failed, but with the Superdome crowd roaring in support of the Saints defense, the Bucs seemed to come unraveled. A holding penalty was followed by a botched snap, then a pair of parsnip penal ties moved Tamp Bay back against its goal line. Soon after, a break down on the offensive line allowed Galette a free run at Glennon for a safety. New Orleans then capped the next drive with Shayne Gra hams 44-yard eld goal. The Saints drove in side the Tampa Bay 20 three times in the rst half, but settled for two eld goals and led 13-0 when Thomas turned a screen into a 15-yard scoring play. The Bucs did not score until Patrick Mur ray hit a 55-yard eld goal with 1:54 left. BUCS FROM PAGE C1 the season and ties with him Team Penske teammate Brad Kesel owski for most in the Sprint Cup Series. Kyle Larson who is not part of the Chase nished second and was followed by cham pionship-eligible driv er Kyle Busch, who nished a career-best third at a track where he has continuously seen his title hopes fall apart. I won today, Busch said, I just didnt get champagne and a tro phy. Kansas is noted for destroying the cham pionship chances of many a driver, and Sunday saw four Chase drivers nish 22nd or worse. That includ ed three of the Hen drick Motorsports cars and six-time and defending NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson. Johnson, who spun during Friday qualify ing and started 32nd, was mired in thick traf c when he was hit by Greg Bife just 85 laps into the race. He was forced to take his Chevrolet to the garage for repairs and n ished 40th. It just means weve got to be on our game at Charlotte and Tal ladega, Johnson said. Well see how the other Chasers fare. If I can get taken out to day, somebody else can later in this event or at Charlotte. Cer tainly need Ws, I would assume, going forward.

BILL HABER / AP Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Robert Herron (10) scores on a touchdown pass as New Orleans Saints free safety Rafael Bush (25) covers in the second half on Sunday in New Orleans. Misery loves compa ny, and the Ducks now have plenty. When so many heavyweights hit the mat at once, it takes some of the sting out of those upsets. Its now more likely mul tiple teams that have lost will reach the fourteam playoff. There are sever al teams around here who have lost games and responded the right way. And they went on to have pret ty good seasons, Tide coach Nick Saban said. Oregon, Alabama, Oklahoma and UCLA all began the season ranked in the top seven. Lets leave A&M out of this for now and take a look a brief look at where those four stand and their chances of making a playoff run. Oregon: The biggest problem for the Ducks is an offensive line that has been beset by injuries. It has left star quarterback Mar cus Mariota exposed and the running game sputtering. The de fense has been shaky, too, ranking 79th na tionally in yards per play. Oregon might not be capable of sep arating from the rest of the Pac-12, a confer ence lled with dan gerous and unpredict able teams.

Cruz spent much of this past offseason without a team after serving a 50-game sus pension last year for vi olating baseballs drug agreement. Norris pitched twohit ball for 6 1-3 innings, and Andrew Miller got ve straight outs to keep the shutout going. Victor Martinez and J.D. Martinez opened the ninth with back-toback doubles off Britton. Bryan Holaday struck out after a failed bunt attempt, and Showal ter made the unconven tional decision to put the winning run on base by intentionally walking Nick Castellanos. That meant the bot tom of Detroits line up would have to come through. The Tigers sent up Hernan Pe rez who had ve atbats in the regular sea son to pinch hit, and bounced a 96 mph fast ball into a 5-4-3 dou ble play. It was Brittons second save of the se ries. Cruz led the majors with 40 homers this season, and the Orioles topped baseball with 211. It was his two-run homer in the rst inning of the opener that set the tone for this series, and he came through again in the sixth inning against Price. Cruzs drive cleared the wall in right, about 2 feet to the left of the foul pole. Not bad for a guy the Orioles signed in late February. Cruz turned down a $14.1 million qualifying offer that would have kept him with Texas but he end ed up having to settle for an $8 million, one-year contract with Baltimore that included $750,000 in roster bonuses. Cruzs powerful bat enabled the Orioles to withstand season-end ing injuries to Manny Machado and Matt Wi eters, as well as Chris Davis 25-game sus pension for an amphet amine violation. Detroit won its fourth straight division ti tle this year, but they couldnt make it four ALCS visits in a row. The Tigers remain without a World Series title since 1984 a drought one year shorter than Balti mores. Detroit acquired Price at this years trade deadline, adding an other impressive arm to an already-formidable rotation. Max Scherzer, Price and Justin Ver lander are the ALs last three Cy Young Award winners, and the Tigers started them all in this series. They couldnt manage a single victory. Verlander and Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera have combined for the last three MVP awards. No use against a Balti more team that had al ready surprised most of baseball with a 96-win regular season.

Monday, October 6, 2014 DAILY COMMERCIAL C3 NFL ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer DENVER Peyton Man ning joined Brett Favre in the NFLs most exclusive of clubs with his 500th touch down pass Sunday when the Denver Broncos handed the Arizona Cardinals their rst loss, 41-20. Manning nished with four TD throws, moving him with in ve of Favres record 508. Manning found tight end Julius Thomas twice in the end zone, including the touchstone touchdown, a 7-yard dart in the rst quar ter. Yet, it was wide receiver Demaryius Thomas who had the biggest day for the Bron cos (3-1) with eight catches for a team-record 226 yards and two TDs. That beat Shan non Sharpes mark of 214 yards set against Kansas City in 2002. Demaryius Thomas caught touchdown passes of 31 and 86 yards and his 77-yard TD was nullied by left tack le Ryan Cladys chop block in the third quarter. Arizo na (3-1) lost for the rst time and saw quarterback Drew Stanton leave with a possible concussion. Manning nished 31 of 47 for 479 yards, four TDs and two interceptions. Emman uel Sanders caught seven passes for 101 yards. Stanton, subbing for Car son Palmer again, was knocked from the game on a hard hit by Von Miller in the third period and Logan Thomas came in for Arizona (3-1). Stanton nished 11 of 26 for 118 yards. After getting sacked twice on his rst drive and throw ing two incompletions on his second, Thomas threaded a pass through linebacker Nate Irvings grasp. It landed in the arms of running back Andre Ellington for a stunning 81yard score that made it 24-20 late in the third quarter. That ended up being Thomas only completion in eight attempts. Brandon McManus, whose solid start convinced the Broncos that they should release the suspended Matt Prater, made it 27-20 when his 41-yard eld goal bounced off the left post and through the uprights. Earlier, McManus was good from 44 yards, but wide left from 53. Manning then threw his fourth TD and second to Ju lius Thomas, a 12-yarder that made it 34-20. It was the tight ends seventh TD grab of the season. With Montee Ball sidelined with a groin injury, Ron nie Hillman ran for 64 yards on 14 carries. Rookie Juwan Thompson bullied his way in from 8 yards to cap the scor ing. Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan made his 2014 de but after breaking his left leg in the preseason. He led the Broncos with seven tackles, six solo. Mannings 500th TD throw came in his 244th career reg ular season game, 49 fewer games than it took Favre. It came against two of his men tors: Arizona coach Bruce Ar ians and Cardinals assistant head coach Tom Moore. Ar ians was Mannings rst po sition coach in 1998 and Moore was his offensive co ordinator during his entire time in Indy. Knowing him better than any other team does, it wasnt surprising the Cardi nals came up with two in terceptions of Manning, ei ther. What was a big surprise was 300-pound defensive end Calais Campbell snatch ing Mannings screen pass and rumbling to the 5, where Manning tripped him up. DENVER 41, ARIZONA 20 DALLAS 20, HOUSTON 17 BROWNS 29, TITANS 28 CAROLINA 31, CHICAGO 24 MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer INDIANAPOLIS Andrew Luck took his chances on Sunday. Eventually, the Colts quar terback and Indianapo lis suddenly stout defense did just enough to hold on. Luck threw for one touch down, ran for another, worked the clock masterful ly and then watched the de fense close it out in the nal minutes Sunday as the Colts held off the Baltimore Ravens 20-13. Luck was 32 of 49 for 312 yards with two intercep tions. But his 6-yard TD pass to Dwayne Allen early in the third quarter nally gave the Colts some breathing room and his nifty 13-yard TD run early in the fourth made it 20-6. Indianapolis (3-2) allowed a season-low 13 points and has now won three straight since starting 0-2, grabbing a share of the AFC South lead because of Houstons over time loss in Dallas. The last two division champs will break the early season tie Thursday night when the Colts travel to Texas. Baltimore (3-2) saw its three-game winning streak end on a day the offense struggled. Joe Flacco was 22 of 38 for 235 yards, threw one interception and was sacked a season-high four times one more time than hed been sacked all season. They had three turnovers and there was a nearly 17-min ute disparity in possession time. The predictable result: Bal timore dropped to 0-5 alltime in Indianapolis. In the rst half, it was all defense and all eld goals. Steve Smith fumbled on the Ravens rst offensive play, giving Indy the ball at the Baltimore 22. Three plays later, Adam Vinatieri made a 38-yard eld goal for a 3-0 lead. Vinatieri made it 6-0 late in the second quarter after one defensive penalty gave the Colts a second chance to score a touchdown, and an offensive penalty later wiped out a touchdown pass. INDIANAPOLIS 20, BALTIMORE 13 SCHUYLER DIXON AP Sports Writer ARLINGTON, Tex as Tony Romos deep throws under pressure saved the Dallas Cow boys twice Sunday. Romo threw off his back foot to Dez Bry ant to set up Dan Bai leys winning field goal in overtime, and the Cowboys beat the Houston Texans 2017 despite blowing a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter. Baileys kick was set up when Tony Romo threw off his back foot with pressure from the pass rush and Dez Bry ant made a spectacu lar leaping catch for 37 yards to the Houston 31. Romo earlier escaped a sure sack from J.J. Watt for a 43-yard scor ing pass to Terrance Williams. After the Texans scored twice in the nal 2:27 of regulation, Bai leys miss from 53 yards on the nal play of reg ulation ended a fran chise record streak of 30 straight made eld goals. The Cowboys (41) won their fourth straight for the rst time since 2011 head ing into a trip to Super Bowl champion Seattle, their only road game in a stretch of six games. The Texans (3-2) ral lied behind Arian Fos ter, who had 157 yards rushing and a tying 1-yard score with 41 seconds left in regula tion. NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray had 136 yards for Dallas, his fth straight 100yard game to start the season. After the Cowboys stopped the Texans on the rst possession of overtime, they were fac ing third-and-8 when Romo unloaded just to avoid a sack. Bry ant made a spectacu lar leaping catch over Johnathan Joseph for a 37-yard gain to the Houston 31. Baileys kick came three plays later. STEVE REED AP Sports Writer CHARLOTTE, N.C. Cam Newton dis pelled any notion that the Panthers offense isnt built to erase big decits. Newton threw two touchdown pass es to Greg Olsen and the Carolinas defense forced four turnovers to overcome a 14-point decit and defeat the Chicago Bears 31-24 on Sunday. With the game tied at 24, Carolinas Antoine Cason stripped Matt Forte of the ball and the Panthers Kawaan Short recovered at Chi cagos 23. Six plays lat er, Newton found Ol sen on a slant route for a 6-yard touchdown for the go-ahead score with 2:18 left. The Panthers sealed the win when Short sacked Jay Cutler and Charles Johnson recov ered as the Panthers (32) snapped a two-game losing streak and re claimed rst place in the NFC South. Newton was 19 of 35 for 255 yards with two touchdown passes and one interception. Ol sen had six catches for 72 yards. Cutler was 28 of 36 for 289 yards with two TDs, but turned the ball over three times for the Bears (2-3). Forte had 61 yards rushing and 105 yards receiving and a touchdown be fore his costly fumble. The Bears had a 21-7 lead late in the rst half and seemed in control until the momentum changed when Rob bie Gould missed a 35yard eld goal. The Panthers went to a no-huddle offense in the nal two min utes of the rst half and Newton was 5 of 6 passing for 72 yards on the drive, includ ing a 9-yard TD strike to Olsen, the former Bears tight end, to cut the lead to 21-14 with 12 seconds left. It was a shot in the arm to us, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. Carolina stayed with the no-huddle in the third quarter and New ton drove the Panthers 86 yards on 10 plays, and Chris Ogbonnaya scored on a 1-yard run to tie the game at 21.

Newton, Olsen lift Panthers over Bears Luck takes chances, defense comes up strong to lead Colts past Ravens TERESA M. WALKER AP Sports Writer NASHVILLE, Tenn. The Cleveland Browns shook off a sluggish start with a nish to re member. Brian Hoyer threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Travis Benja min with 1:09 left, and the Browns rallied from a 25-point decit in beating the Tennessee Titans 2928 Sunday for their biggest come back in franchise history. The Browns (2-2) had nev er come back from more than 20 points before, and this easily topped the comeback on Dec. 4, 1966, when Cleveland trailed the Giants 34-14 and won 49-40, ac cording to STATS Inc. This time, the Browns also won a road game for the rst time since Sept. 22, 2013, at Minneso ta, and they couldnt have made it tougher on themselves as they fell behind 28-3 in the rst half. Hoyer leads rally as Browns defeat Giants JOE MAHONEY / AP Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (18) celebrates his 500th career touchdown pass during the rst half against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday in Denver.

BUFFALO 17, DETROIT 14 PITTSBURGH 17, JACKSONVILLE 9 JOSE JUAREZ / AP Buffalo Bills kicker Dan Carpenter (2) boots a gamewinning eld goal in the fourth quarter against the Detroit Lions on Sunday in Detroit. JOHN WAWROW AP Sports Writer DETROIT Buf falos Dan Carpenter did what Detroits Alex Henery couldnt: The Bills kicker managed to split the uprights. Carpenter hit a 58yard eld goal with 4 seconds remaining, sealing a come-frombehind 17-14 win over the Lions on Sunday afternoon. Carpenters eld goal came 17 seconds af ter Henery missed his third and nal attempt, a 50-yarder that sailed wide left. Henery hit the right upright from 50 yards and uttered a 47 yarder wide left on consecutive posses sions in the third quar ter. The Bills (3-2) snapped a two-game skid in Kyle Ortons de but as Buffalos start er. And their defense had six sacks in deliv ering coordinator Jim Schwartz a win in his return to Detroit after being red as the Lions head coach last sea son. Orton, a 10-year journeyman, went 30 of 43 for 308 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Orton set up the decisive score by hitting rookie Sam my Watkins over the middle for a 20-yard gain. The ball was thrown behind Watkins, but he reached back with his right hand, tipping the ball forward and mak ing the grab. The Lions (3-2) squandered a 14-0 lead, dropped to 2-1 at home and also several key regulars. Receiver Calvin Johnson did not re turn after aggravat ing a right ankle inju ry in the rst minute of the third quarter. And starting running back Reggie Bush didnt n ish the game after also hurting his ankle. The Lions entered the game already miss ing running backs Joique Bell (concus sion) and Theo Riddick (hamstring). Golden Tate picked up the slack with seven catches for 134 yards. MARK LONG AP Sports Writer JACKSONVILLE Pittsburghs defense turned in its best per formance of the season. Playing rookie Blake Bortles and the Jack sonville Jaguars surely helped. Brice McCain re turned an interception 22 yards for a touch down, helping the Steelers overcome a mediocre offensive per formance and beat the winless Jaguars 17-9 Sunday. McCain stepped in front of receiver Al len Hurns early in the fourth quarter, Bortles wobbly sideline pass and went untouched the other way. It was just what the Steelers (3-2) needed to gain a little breathing room in a game much tighter than they prob ably expected. The Jaguars (0-5) didnt want a moral vic tory, but surely they will try to build on a close loss after dropping their past ve games by dou ble digits. Jacksonville was in this one from start to nish. Bortles, making his rst start at home, com pleted 22 of 36 pass es for 191 yards. He was hampered by several dropped passes in cluding three by Hurns and a handful of un timely penalties. But the worst mistake was his fourth-quarter interception, which was his second of the game, fth of the season and second returned for a touchdown. Pittsburghs Ben Ro ethlisberger had a cost ly fumble two plays be fore McCains pick. It came on one of Jack sonvilles four sacks, but worked out in Pitts burghs favor. Roethlisberger com pleted 26 of 36 pass es for 273 yards, with a touchdown. His 1-yard scoring pass to tight end Michael Palm er put the Steelers up 10-3 late in the second quarter. Pittsburghs defense was solid all after noon, holding Jackson ville to 243 yards. That was somewhat expect ed considering defen sive coordinator Dick LeBeaus track record against rookie quarter backs. The Steelers im proved to 18-2 against rookie QBs since LeB eau returned in 2004. The units perfor mance was quite a turn around from last weeks debacle, when the Steelers allowed Tampa Bay to drive 46 yards for a game-winning touch down in the nal 40 sec onds. Jacksonvilles defen sive effort was more surprising. The Jaguars had been gouged in every game this season, giving up an average of 451 yards and 38 points in the rst four weeks. Coach Gus Bradley made a couple of personnel changes, but insisted the units better days were ahead. Jacksonville held LeVeon Bell to 82 yards rushing on 15 car ries and kept Antonio Brown and Heath Mill er in check, too. Brown nished with ve receptions for 84 yards, and Miller add ed three catches for 46 yards a week after haul ing in a career-high 10 passes. Although the Jaguars fell to 0-5 for the second straight season, they have low expectations in the second year of a complete rebuild. They gure Bortles will learn from his mis takes, and hes playing with one of the young est teams in the league. Jacksonville started a season-high seven rookies, including six on offense. The inexperience showed, primarily with Hurns three drops, Bortles interception and holding/procedure calls on inexperienced offensive linemen.

Monday, October 6, 2014 DAILY COMMERCIAL C5 COLLEGE FOOTBALL JOHN ZENOR AP Sports Writer AUBURN, Ala. The Au burn Tigers put together their most dominating perfor mance of the season on de fense and were explosive on offense against a ranked team, but theyre still not interested in talking about the polls. The second-ranked Tigers, who moved up three spots in the Associated Press rankings after Saturday nights 41-7 win over then-No. 15 LSU, came out of nowhere to win the Southeastern Conference championship last season. This team faces much bigger challenges ahead, starting Saturday on the road against co-No. 3 Mississippi State. But after easily its most impressive win, Auburn (50, 2-0 SEC) was facing ques tions about whether the team might even deserve to jump unbeaten Florida State and grab the top spot. Auburn did get 23 rst-place votes on Sunday. Deserving? Im more on the side of we are going to keep on trucking and earn it, defensive tackle Gabe Wright said. Im not even going to lie to you, after last year its shown a lot that the rankings dont matter. Just play, just play your butts off. I think like with last year and nobody ranking us at all, I think this team just wants to keep on trucking. If we han dle our business I feel like well be where we want to be at the end of the year. Auburn does have some perspective. The Tigers nev er even surfaced in the rank ings last season until a win over Texas A&M on Oct. 19 but went to the BCS cham pionship game. Cracking the Top 10 took two more weeks, and Auburn didnt rise to No. 2 until after beating Missou ri in the SEC championship game on Dec. 7, with help from an Ohio State loss. Really on our team, Ive not heard one player or coach even talk about being ranked or anything like that, Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. Our whole deal is at the end of the season. Thats just the rst game of the grind. Well all sort it out at the end. This game, though, was sorted out at the beginning. Auburn jumped ahead 17-0 in the rst 12 minutes, out gained LSU (4-2, 0-2) by more than double (566-280) and held the visiting Tigers to 0 for 13 on third downs. It was an eye-catching per formance for an Auburn team that had sputtered at times on offense against both Kansas State and Louisiana Tech. This time Nick Mar shall both rushed and passed for two touchdowns to lead a balanced offensive effort. The defense has held both LSU and No. 17 Kansas State below 300 yards in total of fense. That was probably our best performance overall as a team, Malzahn said. We played well in certain units but that was an overall per formance against a very good team. The win also snapped a three-game losing streak to LSU, including the only reg ular-season defeat in 2013. Malzahn emphasized that both before and after the game. Coach Malzahn asked us in a meeting (Friday) to raise our hands if we had beat en LSU, Auburn cornerback Trovon Reed said. Only one player raised his hand and that was Jeff Whitaker. He asked us the same question after the game and we were all able to raise our hands. The loss left LSU 0-2 in the SEC for the rst time un der coach Les Miles and with even more questions at quar terback. Auburn at No. 2 but uninterested in ranking BRYNN ANDERSON / AP Auburn running back Corey Grant (20) eludes LSU linebacker Kendell Beckwith (52) in the second half on Saturday in Auburn, Ala.

AP FILE PHOTO Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps speaks to a group of Maryland high school students in 2005 as part of his sentence after pleading guilty to a DUI charge. Authorities say Phelps has been arrested again on a DUI charge in Maryland. SWIMMING PAUL NEWBERRY AP National Writer Putting his swimming career on hold after his second DUI arrest, Olympic champion Mi chael Phelps began a six-week program Sun day that he said will provide the help I need to better understand myself. The winningest ath lete in Olympic histo ry made the announce ment in a series of posts on his Twitter account. According to his rep resentatives at Octa gon, Phelps entered an in-patient program that will keep him from com peting at least through mid-November, though theres no indication he plans to give up swim ming. The past few days have been extreme ly difcult, Phelps said in a statement. I recog nize that this is not my rst lapse in judgment, and I am extremely dis appointed with myself. Im going to take some time away to attend a program that will pro vide the help I need to better understand my self. Phelps says career on hold after yet another DUI arrest GREG BEACHAM AP Hockey Writer Hockey is a booming business right now. Af ter an attention-grab bing Olympic trip and an exciting postsea son for the scandal-free NHL, revenue and tele vision ratings have ris en to record levels across a largely healthy, happy league. Yet the NHL ice is tilted decidedly to the West, and the conti nental divide might even grow this season. A few months after Chicago and Los Ange les staged an epic con ference nals won by the Stanley Cup cham pion Kings, nearly ev ery team on the West ern side of hockeys unbalanced standings made signicant off season additions to chase the leagues twin postseason powers. Anaheim added Ryan Kesler. Dallas snared Jason Spezza and Ales Hemsky. St. Lou is signed Paul Stast ny. Minnesota snagged Thomas Vanek. Colo rado got Jarome Iginla and Daniel Briere. Even Chicago picked up Brad Richards. Only the champs essential ly stood pat, daring the West to catch them. It seems like the West is loading up again, Kings center Anze Kop itar said. But at the end of the day, I dont think its going to matter too much what the other teams do. Its going to matter what we do. The Blackhawks and the Kings each have two titles in the last ve years, and theyre both the widely considered favorites to play for the Stanley Cup again. But when Los Angeles beat the New York Rang ers in ve games in the Stanley Cup nals last year, many prognosti cators scoffed that ve West teams could have beaten any East rep resentative and the theoretical math ap pears much the same this fall. The West is such a grind, Ducks de fenseman Ben Love joy said. Theres so much talent. All these huge, physical teams that skate very well. We can have another great regular season, and it wont matter if we dont have the toughness to win in the playoffs. The Western Con ference has won six of the last eight Cups, and the two East winners were stretched to a full seven games in the nals. Although Bos ton, Pittsburgh, Mon treal and Tampa Bay return strong clubs, league MVP Sidney Crosby and the rest of the Easts stars realize theyll have to go West to win a title. The West is where its at right now, and it runs in spurts, Buffalo gen eral manager Tim Mur ray said. The Western teams are good teams. Theyre big. Theyre strong. Someone is go ing to have to dethrone L.A. to say the West is not the best. While the other 29 teams get to work on that project, there are plenty of intriguing subplots to the season. Six teams have new head coaches, with Pe ter Laviolette taking over in Nashville for Bar ry Trotz who moved to Washington and Willie Desjardins helm ing Vancouvers rebuild ing project. The high est-prole job belongs to Pittsburghs Mike Johnston, a 57-year-old NHL coaching rookie who must gain the trust of Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to spur the un derachieving Penguins.

BERNIE MCGUIRE Associated Press ST. ANDREWS, Scotland Oliver Wilson held off Rory McIlroy to capture his rst European Tour title with a one-shot victory in the Al fred Dunhill Links Champi onship. Wilson shot a 2-under 70 in the nal round on the Old Course at St. Andrews as McIlroy came up just short after a bogey on the 17th hole. Wilson nished at 17-under 271, with McIlroy (68) in a three-way tie for sec ond with Richie Ramsay of Scotland and Tommy Fleet wood of England. The 34-year old Wilson, currently ranked 792nd in the world, had nished sec ond nine times in his 227 previous tour events, but lost his card two years ago and was competing this week on an invitation. Its all really hard to be lieve as I have dreamed of this moment many times in my career, and in the cir cumstances it has happened I cant believe it, said Wil son, who started the day with a three-shot lead. So its a dream come true to win a tournament as St. Andrews because three, four weeks ago my career was looking pretty grim. Its just amazing what is possible playing pro fessional golf. McIlroy started with a dou ble bogey but then made four straight birdies and picked up two more shots after the turn before putting from off the green and into the infa mous Road Hole bunker at the 17th. At the rst hole, his ball spun back off the green into the Swilcan Burn. I feel I cost myself the tournament in the space of 20 yards at the front of the green at the rst and over at the Road Hole bunker, with both not too far away from each other, McIlroy said. They were the only two mis takes I made all day. Ramsay had a two-shot lead after birdies at 14 and 15 but then handed the shots back with bogeys the next two to shoot 67. Fleetwood had a chance to force a play off but missed a six-foot putt at the 18th to settle for a 68. GOLF Oliver Wilson victorious at Dunhill Links for first European championship

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Oct. 6, 2014 : This year you commit to a strong exercise program that works for you. Often you could ex perience a buildup of feelings that nearly seems to take control of you. Through me diation or exercise, you will experience a little more sta bility. Root out the causes of these feelings, especially an ger. If you are single, some one will arrive on the scene, but the implications of the tie might make you uncomfort able. If you are attached, the two of you enjoy your friends and spend a lot of time with them. A conscious decision you make as a couple proves to be benecial. PISCES of ten seems so emotional that you might want to back off. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You might express a vol atile quality unintentionally. You are quite capable of do ing the unexpected, or even leading a mini-revolution! Youll work with the awkward ness of various situations, even if youre unsure which side of the fence youre on. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You might want to kick back and consider what would be best. A sudden in sight on top of a sense of incompleteness is likely to hold you back. A friend could be overly assertive. As a re sult, you probably will decide to back off. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Others seem to be difcult, and no matter which way you choose to go, youll no tice that there is a transfor mation afoot. Laughter sur rounds a personal matter. Try to be less social and more academic. Get into a project or two. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Detach, but dont be sur prised if you still are pulled into various situations. Look at the major issues, and re main understanding to those who do not have your ability to take in the big picture. Ac cept additional responsibili ty for now. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Someone knows how to lure you into accepting the wis dom of his or her ways. You will have to decide whether youre willing to be pulled in. Nevertheless, you might en joy the excitement of seeing life through someone elses eyes. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Others continue to domi nate the scene. You like that they assume this role, and as a result, you can have a very powerful discussion that you have postponed. Guard against harboring any anger that really has nothing to do with the here and now. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Pace yourself, as youll have a lot to do. Someone close to you could create some up roar. The timing of this will be what throws you off. Shrug off the situation, as you can not change this person. You might want to isolate your self. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Youll be emotionally in vested in a situation that in volves a new friend. Being in denial certainly wont help. Open up and see the effect that this person has on you. You dont need to behave like a turtle that keeps hiding deep in its shell. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21) You might want to do something very differently, yet you cant seem to change courses at the moment. Know that youll be able to head in your chosen direction given some time. A domestic matter or an issue involving real estate could be in your thoughts. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You could be more in touch with an emotional mat ter involving a friend and/or a goal. Relax, and youll nd that you will be on top of the problem very soon. Be care ful with any anger you have, as you no longer can sit on it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You might want to handle a personal matter in a differ ent way. You could discover that a friend is pushing your buttons because he or she wants to make an implicit de mand. Use caution with your feelings. Be willing to sup port yourself and say no. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Youll smile, but some how you could irritate a key person in your life. This per son might be a bit jealous, or perhaps the issue has noth ing to do with you. Try to be polite, and understand that you might not know this indi vidual completely. HOROSCOPES TODAY IN HISTORY DEAR ABBY: I am a male in the training department at my of ce. A lot of times, be cause the people I train are new hires, there are dress code violations from people who appear to be test ing the limits. Most of the violations involve women who wear clothing thats too re vealing, in spite of the fact they receive a document at the start of training explaining what is and is not ap propriate attire. I feel uncomfortable addressing dress code issues with the oppo site sex. I have always asked a female in the department to do it for me. My problem is, my manager has told me I need to be able to deal with issues like this if I want to move forward in my career. My question to you and your readers is, as a woman, would you feel more uncom fortable with a male boss addressing a too much cleavage or skirt too short is sue than you would with another female? And have you any sug gestions for wording in these situations? DRESSED FOR SUCCESS IN VIRGINIA DEAR DRESSED FOR SUCCESS: Speaking for myself, I think Id pre fer to hear that mes sage from another woman however, MY preference is be side the point. You have a job to do, and that is to enforce the rules of your compa ny. So when you tell a female employee that shes not complying with the dress code, use the wording in the employee handbook or the document the person received when she was hired. (Hope fully, the wording is specic.) DEAR ABBY: I have a question about where and when to have a re tirement party. I know its inappropriate for families to host a baby shower, but is that true of a retirement party? My husband has worked for a nonprof it for 14 years and will retire in a few months. There isnt an appro priate site for a par ty at his work. I have suggested an open house at our home a couple of weeks after his retirement date. My daughter thinks her house would be better because we are not supposed to have it. My son-in-law dis likes entertaining at home, so I know it would be stressful for them. If we have it at our house, we can en courage friends and co-workers to come over again and stay in touch. I love to enter tain and would hap pily prepare the food and decorate. Am I on the right track, Abby? HAPPY THAT HUBBYS RETIRING DEAR HAPPY: Youre absolutely on the right track. No rule of et iquette forbids you from hosting the par ty for your husband if you wish. According to Emi ly Post: A retirement party may ... be given by family and friends instead of or in ad dition to a compa ny party. Its general ly a good idea to invite a few of the retirees close work mates. Be cause they share a work history with the retiree, theyll be able to speak of specic ac complishments in any speeches and toasts.
