Stuff and


It is nice to be read. Several readers
were good enough to let me know that
the Christmas boat parade mentioned
here last week is on Sunday, Dec. 15,
not on Monday the
Today caps the

Derek lived in the same
DUNN-RANKIN house or city for less
than eight years.
CHAIRMAN Moving requires
some healthy
decisions. If you still have the seven
hibachis received as wedding presents
or a china set from which all the sau-
cers, but only two of the cups, survive,
moving suggests leaving some things
behind. For those of us who grew up in
the Great Depression, it is hard to give
up on stuff.
The American Indians of the Great
Plains picked up all their belongings
that counted and moved with the
seasons. If you were carrying all your
goods on your back or dragging them
along the trail, you kept only what was
really needed.
After three dozen Christmases in
the same abode, it is time to at least to
pretend to move.
In the attic crawl space are enough
accumulated Christmas ornaments
to decorate three trees. David's Little
League fielder's mitt is still there, along
with the tent and sleeping bag Jeff
backpacked on Boy Scout camping
Do I really need to keep in the garage
my tax returns from the 1980s?
There is the Craftsman drill. Years ago
Sears would have repaired it. Next to it
is the still-operational replacement. It,
in turn, has been replaced by a cord-
less, battery-operated, variable-speed
that turns out to be quite useful for a
small repair job every year or two.
"Is that shirt new?" daughter Debbie
asks. "No, I have had it for 40 years,
but they don't make them like this
anymore." When I bring home a pair of
pants from the dry cleaners with a crisp
new crease, it is hard to squeeze them
into my closet. Not that I haven't tried
to make space. There is a whole box
of event T-shirts. Two commemorate
swimming the Peace River in 2001 and
I could start simplifying my life with
the pants on the lower rung of the clos-
et. There are those with a 32-inch waist,
those with waist sizes of 34, 36 and 38.
Maybe I could compromise and keep
those at 38 and hope to need them.
There is the thermal underwear, very
comfortable in the freezing weather
when we lived in North Carolina during
the 1970s. If I throw the thermal out, it
will be the very next week I may make
a trip to Vermont to see my cousin. We
visited at her daughter's wedding in
There are three printers in the garage
that don't work. They all look like the
one I bought a decade ago for $1,200. It
is hard to throw them out even though
their replacement cost less than $200.
Sometimes decisions are made for
you. It is not necessary to move in
order to trade in my car with its 192,000
miles. The air conditioner has conked
out and will cost as much as the car
is worth to repair. As soon as the tires
wear out or summer weather comes on,
I am going to trade for a later model.
When I do, I could just stuff the trunk
with khaki pants and dress shirts that
require ironing or that have frayed just
too much to wear to the office.

Reported rapes rise

Officials: Numbers show 'more victims coming forward'

law enforcement agencies are on
pace to field the highest annual
number of reported forcible rapes in
at least 13 years, according to data
from the Florida Department of Law
From January through June of this
year, the Charlotte County Sheriff's
Office received 23 reports of forcible
rapes, according to the semiannual
Uniform Crime Report released in

mid-November. That's up from 15 for
the same time period last year. If that
number doubles, it could be an annual
However authorities and victim
service specialists explain the spike is
not something to worry about. In fact,
it may be a good sign.
"I believe there are more victims
coming forward, rather than an in-
crease in the crime," said Jim Kenville,
bureau of law enforcement command-
er with the CCSO. 'And a lot of that has
to do with education from places like

Center for Abuse and Rape
Emergencies of Charlotte County or,
CARE personnel also don't believe
there has been an increase in rapes,
citing more victims are speaking out.
Linda Lusk, CARE's chief advance-
ment officer, says a "victim-centered
approach" has been taken by CARE,
the CCSO, the Punta Gorda Police
Department, the State Attorney's
Office, local hospitals and the
Charlotte County Health Department,
to help victims become more

Hawn, 83, use to ride his bicycle
all around Port Charlotte, usually
lasting two or three hours per
trip, getting exercise and peace
of mind. But since his wife's back
problems flared up, he needs to be
at home more, ready to drive her
to doctors appointments, or just
help around the house.
"She was a real dancer. She used
to be on the dance floor and never
come off," Hawn said of his wife.
CAW, "She just doesn't have the mobility
she used to."
So Hawn is out at The Bicycle
Center on Small Business

trainer, which lifts up the back
wheel of his bike, ensuring that
when he rides, he never leaves
Fortunately, he found trainers
on sale for $160. But just as
important as the price was with
whom he does business.
"I shop locally and I try to buy
American," Hawn said.
The Bicycle Center, at 3795
Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte,
is one of those local merchants.
Now celebrating its 20th anni-
versary with owners Kim and
Gerard Campanella, the bike shop
is immersed in the local biking
community, sponsoring numerous
charity rides, including the annual
Breast Cancer Ride, and playing
host recently to the kickoff party

Rare hand transplant a blessing

mother, she grasped Thurman's right
hand and rubbed it.

CAP cadet recognized

congratulations to
Mikehia Hicks

County Composite
Squadron of the Civil Air
Patrol. She recently was
presented with the Flor-
ida Wing Cadet Honor

nition of her outstanding

in the Civil Air Patrol ca-
det program, according
to a press release from
Earle Bretz, the squad-
ron's spokesman.
According to Bretz,
since the award's
inception in 1997, some
30,000 cadets were
eligible for it. Of that
number, only 377 have
qualified. Mikehla was
number 376.
Of special note is the
fact that the squadron
now has four with

James Errol Sweet

James Errol "Jim" Sweet, 71, of Englewood, Fla.,
passed away Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013, at his home,
after a long battle with Melanoma Cancer.
He was born June 4, 1942, and was originally
from Merchantville, N.J., living the last 40-plus
years in the Medford, N.J., and then the Lower
Bank, N.J., areas.
Jim and his second wife Judy retired to live in
Englewood five years ago. They have been active
in music gatherings with Jim on the Bass Fiddle
and Banjo, playing with the Englewood Beach
Drum Circle, and also in their Yoga Classes at
Englewood Beach. He enjoyed the outdoors,
fishing, kayaking, swimming, playing tennis, loved
the old cars on Dearborn Street, and especially
liked gathering with friends to play music.
Jim was known to be able to build, or fix, almost
anything in his detailed, introspective, humorous
way. While in New Jersey, he worked in Data
Processing, and was a founding member of the
music group, "The Sugar Sand Ramblers," who
performed at Albert Hall regularly, and throughout
the state for many years.
Jim loved his Florida home and sharing it with
friends and family. His gentle, kind and calm, loving
ways will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
He is survived by his three children, Wendy
Donato, Jimmy Sweet Jr. and Greg Sweet; four
grandchildren; one sister, Roberta Gionnone, all
of New Jersey; and his wife, Judy. Jim was preced-
ed in death by his first wife, Carol Ann; and his
parents, Gwendolyn and Ronald Sweet.
A Memorial Service is being planned for early
December in New Jersey, for the New Jersey
family and friends. Another Memorial Gathering
is planned for mid-January, for close family and
friends at their Florida home.

Charles David Bader
Charles David "Chuck" "Chachi" Bader, 56,
of Venice, Fla., and a former resident of Port
Charlotte, Fla., and Miami, Fla., passed away

Bof an automobile accident.
He was born Oct. 1, 1957, in
Charles lived his life with a smile
S on his face and a joke on his lips.
There wasn't a waitress, cashier,
S bartender, or random person
waiting in line in front of him that
he didn't connect with. He brightened the days
of everyone he encountered and everyone lucky
enough to be in his life. Charles embraced life
and lived with a passion. He did everything
in a big way. Charles lived big, loved big and
laughed big. He had an amazing heart and
helped everyone he could whenever possible.
Charles didn't just let you borrow his truck,
he would help you carry, lift, move and, when
needed, help you put it back together. He had
an incredible zest for life and accomplished
more in an average day than most people do
in a week. Charles loved to sail with his family,
fish with friends, travel with loved ones, and
tell his jokes to anyone who would listen. He
touched the lives of so many. If he touched your
life, you were lucky.
He is survived by his loving family, including
his three children, Matthew, Jordan and Jael;
mother, Carolyn; brother, Douglas; sister,
Elizabeth; and his beloved Michelle. Charles was
preceded in death by his father, Robert M. Bader,
Attorney, who passed away last year.
A Celebration of Life ceremony will be held at
2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013, at Moose Lodge
2121, 3462 Loveland Blvd., Port Charlotte, FL
33980. Please bring a favorite "Chuck" story or
joke to share, and dress colorfully to reflect the
colorful life he lived. In lieu of flowers, the family
requests donations be made to Mothers Against
Drunk Drivers, via Friends may
visit online at to sign the
guestbook and extend condolences to the family.

Learning Place

offers opportunity

As the Charlotte
community has
expanded and be-
come more diverse over
the years, the offerings
of the Cultural Center
of Charlotte County's
Learning Place also have
expanded and become
more diverse.
One program that
illustrates this is the
computer instruction
program. Keep in mind
that personal computers
and computer instruc-
tion were not on the
retirees' agenda 50 years
ago, when the Cultural
Center came into being.
Oh, how things have
changed. As these inter-
ests grew in the general
population, the Learning
Place initiated computer
classes for the commu-
nity, and the computer
offerings of the Learning
Place remain on the
cutting edge today.
No matter if you are
attempting to learn new
skills for employment
opportunities or as a
business owner, or you
simply want to learn how
to make good use of your
iPad, iPhone or Android,
the Learning Place has a
course for you. And not


only are these classes
and workshops available
at the Learning Place,
but they are available at
prices unmatched within
the community. Check
out the prices of our
Excel and QuickBooks
classes, for instance.
The Learning Place is
also a place to consider
when looking for certifica-
tion programs. Currently,
two certification programs
are offered regularly. The
CPR and AED two-year
certification class is offered
every other month.
This program is
required for individuals
who are working in many
health-related fields.
The food safety certifi-
cation program for food
service managers also
is offered regularly. This
certification is a federal
requirement for any
food service manager
employed in the food
service industry.
By far, most of the
offerings of the Learning
Place are provided to

enhance the recreation-
al, mental and physical
well-being of our com-
munity members, rather
than improving employ-
ment opportunities.
Classes to learn or to
improve your skills in
art, music, languages,
dance, exercise and
numerous crafts are
cases in point. Not only
will the Learning Place
instructors work to
improve your skills, but
they also are committed
to make their classes a
fun experience for you.
For more information
about the Learning Place
offerings, check out the
Cultural Center's website,
com, or call or drop by
the Learning Place office
at 2280 Aaron St., Port
Charlotte. The phone
number is 941-625-4175,

through Friday, and

From a life's regret to a dream come true


As the Sinatra song
goes, "Regrets, I've had
a few..." It's the rare
person who doesn't
regret something from
his or her life. Sadly, as
people age and become
less mobile, it can often
be difficult to do the
things they wish they'd
done earlier.
That's why Kim Hess,
who at the time was the
activities director for
Sterling House in Port
Charlotte, asked resi-
dents one day to write
down things they wished
they'd done. One story
in particular touched
her, and she felt perhaps
something could be done
about it.
Helen Sorrentino
hadn't seen her sister
in over 30 years. They'd
always meant to get to-
gether, but Helen's sister
lived thousands of miles
away in Nebraska and
had eight children, so her

years were spent raising
them instead of traveling.
Helen's biggest regret was
that she'd never met her
sister's children.
Hess contacted Wish
of a Lifetime, an organi-
zation that grants wishes
to senior citizens. The
group often pays seniors'
airfare as part of their
"My original plan
was to send Helen to
Nebraska," explained
Hess, who is now sales
manager for Sterling
House. "But since Helen
previously had a stroke,
two aides would have
needed to travel with her,
raising the cost consider-
ably. And her sister, now
in her 80s, wasn't up to
Instead, two of Helen's
nieces made the trip
to Florida. Helen was
thrilled to meet them,
and they stayed for
several memorable days.
But Hess and Sterling
House had arranged an-
other surprise for Helen.
Through a program

called Connected Living
- which arranges secure
Internet connections
and tools such as email
and other technology
for seniors Helen was
able to "see" her sister
through Skype.
"Both Helen and her
sister were amazed by
Skype, and it was really
something special to
see," said Hess.
"I don't think I could
ever top that wish," Helen

proclaimed. Pictures
of the event in action
captured her delight.
Sterling House is
owned by Brookdale
Senior Living, which has
partnered with Wish of a
Lifetime and Connected
Living to enrich the lives
of seniors. Sterling House
staff often submits wish-
es on behalf of residents,
but it requires an approv-
al process and wishes
aren't always feasible.

In her application,
Hess described Helen to
the committee, members
of which hadn't had the
pleasure of meeting
her. Even though she's
partially paralyzed and
in a wheelchair, she
never hesitates to help
others, said Hess. She
even makes jewelry

job nobody

wants to take
OUR POSITION: Lieutenant
governor vacancy says much
about the meaningless job.
wounding Father John
Adams, upon his election
as George Washington's
vice president, wrote to a friend,
"My country has in its wisdom
contrived for me the most
insignificant office that ever the
invention of man contrived or
his imagination conceived."
He could just as easily have
been talking about the job of
Florida's lieutenant governor.
The post has been vacant since
March 2013, when Lt. Gov.
Jennifer Carroll resigned over a
scandal involving her consulting
company and a company under
investigation for gambling
racketeering. On Monday, eight
months after the job became
open a second would-be appoin-
tee declined to take it.
"Cobwebs must be growing
in the deserted office as specu-
lation rages about whom Gov.
Rick Scott might pick to replace
Jennifer Carroll," quipped Tampa
Bay Times columnist Steve
Bousquet, in an Oct. 28 article
about conjecture that Senate
Budget Committee Chairman
John Thrasher would be tapped
for the post.
Bousquet could have been
channelling Adams in describing
the lieutenant governor's duties:
"As lieutenant governor, he'd be
cutting ribbons and passing out
proclamations, holding down a
job few take seriously."
At least the vice president
technically presides over the
U.S. Senate (ajobVeeps seldom
perform) and breaks ties (which
happens only slightly more
The position of lieutenant gov-
ernor is prescribed in the state
constitution and the officeholder
succeeds the governor in the
case of death, impeachment,
resignation or incapacitation.
Former Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp
briefly served as governor in
2008 while then-Gov. Charlie
Crist underwent knee surgery.
Former Lt. Gov. Buddy McKay
ascended to governor for 23 days
in 1998 upon the death of Gov.
Lawton Chiles.
But Florida doesn't really need
a lieutenant governor, as the
eight-month vacancy demon-
strates. In fact, the position
didn't exist between 1889, when
it was abolished, and 1968,
when it was reinstated with the
adoption of a new state consti-
tution. The position pays about
$125,000, has no official duties
and is considered a dead-end
political job despite its proximity
to power. None of the state's 18
lieutenant governors were subse-
quently elected governor.
Today, it seems, nobody
wants the job. This week,
Seminole County Sheriff Don
Eslinger declined Scott's offer
to be considered. Last week, St.
Johns County Superintendent
of Schools Joseph Joyner also
passed. Thrasher told reporters
nobody had asked him about it.
According to the Miami Herald's
political blog, Naked Politics, the
only two known candidates be-
ing considered are Sen. Tom Lee
of Brandon and Hillsborough
County Commissioner Sandy
Scott's failure to replace Carroll
has attracted little criticism,
largely because the constitution
provides no concrete timetable
for filling the vacancy, although
it does say the governor "shall fill
by appointment any vacancy"
and that the state "shall have a
lieutenant governor." The state
will have a new lieutenant gover-
nor by January 2015 because the
constitution requires governor
candidate to have running
The constitution doesn't say

anything about nobody wanting
the meaningless job.


This is capitalism
at its very worst

With the latest regarding
flood insurance, one might
wonder, if one is a conspiracy
theorist, that there might be
some sinister reason behind
the increase in premiums.
Doubtless the framers of this
law didn't realize the hard-
ships that would occur when
the premiums increased from
$100/mo. to $1,000/mo.
So, then what happens next?
Panicked owners who can't
absorb the dramatic increases
rush to sell. Who's waiting in
the wings to take advantage of
these poor souls? Blackstone
and others who swooped in to
buy up distressed houses so
they can rent them out until
they mature for resale. What
an opportunity for capitalists
to exploit the peasants with
the government's blessing.
Sort of like the Dodd-Frank

deal, huh? Afterwards the
government will decide to
reduce the premiums allowing
the 'investors' an opportunity
to maximize their investment.
The only people to really
lose during the great depres-
sion were those who didn't
have much but those who
did swooped in and bought
up their assets for peanuts.
Pretty much the same thing
that's been going on lately, but
nobody calls it a depression.
Capitalism at its worst. I
believe in capitalism but there
are some who are without
conscience which is why I'm
not rich I guess.

End of life
issues a priority

The Humanistic Club of
Charlotte County had Donna
Kramm, Florida president
of the Hemlock Society, on
Sept. 17 as guest speaker at
the Kings Gate Country Club

in Port Charlotte. The topic:
End of life issues.
Most of us have it in the
back of our minds not really
realizing how important it is.
Mature folks among us should
really prepare to have a living
will, plus choose a surrogate
to make vital decisions in case
we are not capable of han-
dling things ourselves.
It was obvious how dedicat-
ed Ms. Kramm is to this cause.
There was a question-and-an-
swer period. She urged all of
us to follow her advice and
once completed, not to shove
it in the kitchen drawer.

Salvation Army
deserves credit

Recently, a letter writer indi-
cated that The American Red
Cross was the only charitable
organization providing any
relief to natural disasters in
the United States.
May I humbly suggest that

The Salvation Army provides
major relief, yet gets very little
credit or recognition. It seems
that major emphasis always
seems to be placed on the Red
Cross, while The Salvation
Army gets very little mention.
When in grade school,
I did a term paper on The
Salvation Army and was
amazed at the worldwide
relief they provide. They
actually have pre-positioned
stocks in strategic locations,
ready to be distributed at a
moment's notice. In any giv-
en disaster, the news media
seem to photograph a Red
Cross vehicle; but, if you look
further, you will most likely
see a Salvation Army truck in
the background.
Besides, their administra-
tive overhead is miniscule, as
compared with other relief
organizations. Just take a look
at the administration salaries
associated with some organi-
zations; The Salvation Army
has bare-bone salaries and
administrative costs; a major
percentage of contributions
goes to actual relief.
Please remember The
Salvation Army in your chari-
table contributions.

Wounded warriors
should get help

We see Wounded Warriors
on TV with celebrities asking
Americans to donate $19 a
month to help.
Then we see that the USA
is giving the larger part of
$7 billion (our tax dollars)
with a few other countries to
Iran on a deal.
As a Korean War veteran I
am asking: Why do Wounded
Warriors have to beg for help
when we pay taxes? Our
government should take care
of our warriors after putting
them in harm's way.

Get ready here come the Sixties again

he news media love
anniversaries, and this
month's surge of com-
memoratives marking the
assassination of President
Kennedy is just the opening
bell for a media observance
that will go on for years the
50th anniversary of the Sixties.
The Kennedy retrospective
I saw were tasteful and ap-
propriate, but they got me to
thinking about the differences
between practicing journalism
and writing history. The fact is,
one of the most consequential
things the news media do is
something they're not really
equipped to do: Decide what
should be remembered and
Tending the collective mem-
ory isn't the media's vocation.
News people are trained to
chronicle what's happening
around them, not to recognize
what's of lasting significance,
let alone to sort out the
contemporary meaning of
long-ago events. News is only
the first draft of history, as the
lame old saying goes, and as
writers know, most first drafts
end up in the trash.
Still, there's nobody else
around to supervise the work
of large-scale remembering,
so that function falls to the
media. Normally, it's a func-
tion that goes unnoticed, even
though it percolates into news
reporting, typically when the
journalist introduces context
or background.
Sometimes history intrudes
in the form of the tossed-off,
parenthetic characterization
of an individual in the

Edward Wasserman
The Miami Herald

obituary that refers in passing
to "the disgraced former
congressman." Other times
whole chapters of history
are telescoped into insanely
compressed descriptions,
as when a tortured region is
identified as "the province
whose secession provoked a
murderous 20-year war."
As readers, we let that pass,
although if we considered for
a moment how cavalierly the
past was being rummaged
through we'd realize the
practice is dubious. It's not
that the references are false.
It's that they're trotted out as
shorthand for some settled
historical record, and there
isn't one. (That congressman
must have done many other
things; that war surely had
much more complex roots.)
Instead, what journalism
draws from history are usually
highly selective invocations,
blinkered ways of seeing a
complicated past. As with
news, the media seek the
common denominator, and
typically key off the most
emotionally resonant aspect of
a major event and universalize
it (such as "the searing loss"
that "America" experienced
when Kennedy was shot.)
The capsule histories they
present are deeply flawed,
but because they're inserted
routinely into the flow of
news, they're also the way that
we most often learn about the

past. Thus have the news me-
dia become the country's most
influential history teachers.
We're bound to see quite a
lot of that now. Ahead are re-
membrances of the full mosaic
of mid-'60s/early '70s cultural,
political and social upheaval:
the Beatles, civil rights,
Berkeley, "the counterculture,"
the Pill, bell bottoms, mini-
skirts, "women's lib," Vietnam,
acid, Motown, the anti-war
movement, urban insurrec-
tion, Bobby Kennedy, Martin
Luther King Jr., Woodstock,
Chicago, Nixon elected, the
moonshot, Kent State, Jackson
State, Nixon re-elected.
The media are going to
revisit the Sixties because
the stories are dramatic and
colorful and there's a vast
audience that lived through
that period and wants to know
it mattered.
So how might the media
skip the pieties and the plati-
tudes, capture the multiplicity
of experience, and harvest the
youthful experiences of the
generation nearing grandpar-
enthood now that can enrich
public understanding of the
world we share now. How
might the media do it right?
First, the focus should be on
themes, not isolated events.
History isn't just stale journal-
ism, news seen through a rear-
view mirror. News is what's
happening; history is the
context. If you're recalling the
1964 Tonkin Gulf resolution,
which authorized the Vietnam
buildup, you have to say why
it mattered was it presi-
dential deceit, congressional

abdication, imperial over-
reach, whatever and that
context is the story.
Second, the remembrances
need to be inclusive. The point
isn't to pander to a particular
demographic by recalling that
period through their eyes, it's
to acknowledge the fractured
social realities of that time.
Many Americans were not
at all jubilant in 1969 when
Neil Armstrong walked on the
Third, the coverage needs
fresh reporting. It can't be a
clip job. (The news media
didn't have a clue anyway.)
The challenge is to plumb
this history for contemporary
significance, and that requires
new sets of eyes and today's
sensibilities, and it requires
going back to the eyewitness-
es to hear them tell what they
now think they were seeing
and doing then.
Finally, resist the urge to
celebrate. It was a thrilling
and hopeful time, but it was
also cruel and murderous,
and many promises were
made that were never kept.
Talk to historians. Making
sense of the past is what they
The Sixties are back for a
second run, and there's no
reason they can't be just as
surprising, disturbing and
illuminating this time around.

California, here we come?

t goes without saying
that the rollout of
Obamacare was an
epic disaster. But what
kind of disaster was it?
Was it a failure of man-
agement, messing up
the initial implementa-
tion of a fundamentally
sound policy? Or was it a
demonstration that the
Affordable Care Act is
inherently unworkable?
We know what each
side of the partisan
divide wants you to
believe. The Obama ad-
ministration is telling the
public that everything
will eventually be fixed,
and urging congressional
Democrats to keep their
nerve. Republicans,
on the other hand, are
declaring the program
an irredeemable failure,
which must be scrapped
and replaced with...

want to replace it with

really want a controlled
experiment. What would
happen if we unveiled a
program that looked like
Obamacare, in a place
that looked like America,

project management

Well, your wish is
granted. Ladies and
gentlemen, I give you
Now, California
isn't the only place
where Obamacare is
looking pretty good. A
number of states that
are running their own
online health exchanges
instead of relying on are
doing well. Kentucky's
Kynect is a huge success;
so is Access Health CT
in Connecticut. New
York is doing OK. And
we shouldn't forget
that Massachusetts has
had an Obamacare-like
program since 2006,
put into effect by a guy
named Mitt Romney.
California is, however,

an especially useful
test case. First of all,
it's huge: If a system
can work for 38 million
people, it can work for
America as a whole.
Also, it's hard to argue
that California has had
any special advantages
other than that of
having a government
that actually wants to
help the uninsured.
When Massachusetts
put Romneycare into
effect, it already had a
relatively low number
of uninsured residents.
California, however,
came into health reform
with 22 percent of its
nonelderly population
uninsured, compared
with a national average
of 18 percent.
Finally, the California
authorities have been
especially forthcoming
with data tracking the
progress of enrollment.
And the numbers are in-
creasingly encouraging.
For one thing, en-
rollment is surging. At
this point, more than
10,000 applications are
being completed per
day, putting the state
well on track to meet its

overall targets for 2014
coverage. Just imagine,
by the way, how different
press coverage would
be right now if Obama
officials had produced a
comparable success, and
around 100,000 people
a day were signing up
Equally important is
the information on who
is enrolling. To work as
planned, health reform
has to produce a bal-
anced risk pool that
is, it must sign up young,
healthy Americans as
well as their older, less
healthy compatriots.
And so far, so good: In
October, 22.5 percent of
California enrollees were
between the ages of 18
and 34, slightly above
that group's share of the
What we have in
California, then, is a

gov or with one of the
state exchanges, like
Oregon's, that have
similar or worse prob-
lems. Will they ever get
to experience successful
health reform?
The answer is, prob-
ably yes. There won't
be a moment when the
clouds suddenly lift,
but the exchanges are
gradually getting better
- a point inadvertently
illustrated a few days
ago by John Boehner, the
speaker of the House.
Boehner staged a pub-
licity stunt in which he
tried to sign up on the
D.C. health exchange,
then triumphantly
posted an entry on his
blog declaring that he
had been unsuccessful.
At the bottom of his
post, however, is a
postscript admitting that
the health exchange had
called back "a few hours
later," and that he is now
And maybe the
transaction would

if Boehner's office
hadn't, according to

the D.C. exchange, put
its agent who was
calling to help finish the
enrollment on hold
for 35 minutes, listening
to "lots of patriotic hold
There will also prob-
ably be growing use
of workarounds for
example, encouraging
people to go directly
to insurers. This will
temporarily defeat one
of the purposes of the
exchanges, which was to
make price comparisons
easy, but it will be good
enough as a short-term
patch. And one shouldn't
forget that the insurance
industry has a big finan-
cial stake in the success
of Obamacare, and will
soon be pitching in with
big efforts to sign people
Again, Obamacare's
rollout was a disaster.

member Edward
Snowden? For a
while, the National
Security Agency's rene-
gade contractor seemed
like the most influen-
tial man in American
intelligence, even though
he's been hiding out
in Moscow. Snowden's
disclosures touched off
a wave of enthusiasm in
Congress for reforming
the NSAs surveillance
practices and an-
ger overseas when he
revealed that American
spies were listening to
foreign leaders' cell-
phone calls.
But now, as Congress
counts only a few
working days remaining
in its year, the momen-
tum toward intelligence
reform has slowed. "It's
often not a good idea
to legislate when you're
angry," Michael Allen,
a former chief aide to
the House Intelligence
Committee, told me last
week. "The (congressio-
nal) leadership may want
this issue to cool down
a bit."
And that suits the
intelligence agencies just
fine. "The best outcome
from our standpoint is
that nothing changes," a
former top official told
The central issue
Congress has been
wrestling with is whether
to place new restrictions

on the NSA's ability
to collect records of
Americans' communi-
cations. Under current
law, the agency can
collect almost unlimited
"metadata" on telephone
calls inside the United
States, meaning the
phone numbers and
times of calls but not the
content of conversations.
Overseas, the agency
can collect the content
of calls and email, but it
isn't supposed to look at
information about U.S.
citizens unless it's pursu-
ing "foreign intelligence
On a few issues, a
rough consensus has
emerged. Most mem-
bers of Congress agree
that the NSA needs to
disclose more about
its activities, mostly
through more detailed
reports to Congress. And
they have produced a
blizzard of proposals for
reforming the Foreign
Intelligence Surveillance
Court, which rules on
government surveillance
proposals, mostly by

encouraging the court to
add a public advocate to
its secret proceedings.
But there's still deep
division over the cen-
tral issue: Is the NSA
collecting too much
The leaders of the
Senate Intelligence
Committee, Sens. Dianne
Feinstein, D-Calif., and
Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga.,
have produced a bill that
would essentially leave
the NSA's current prac-
tices in place but add
modest new reporting
requirements. But others,
including Sen. Patrick
Leahy, D-Vt., chairman
of the Senate Judiciary
Committee, would
impose tough new limits.
A bill Leahy has in-
troduced would require
the NSA to show that
any domestic metadata
it seeks is "relevant
and material" to an
investigation of foreign
intelligence or terrorism.
Intelligence officials say
that would mean the
end of the metadata
effort because the
program is designed
precisely to amass a giant
database ahead of time
that analysts can check
when they acquire, for
example, the telephone
number of a suspected
It's hard to imagine
that Congress will undo
a program that Obama

administration officials
describe as effective
against international
terrorism. But the NSA
hasn't been its own best
advocate. First, officials
claimed the agency's sur-
veillance programs had
helped foil 54 terrorist
plots; then, as the claim
came under scrutiny,
they acknowledged that
most of those incidents
were outside the United
States and the role of
metadata wasn't always
The key could be
the position President
Obama takes after his
own in-house intelli-
gence review panel de-
livers its report, expected
next month. But civil lib-
ertarians, who have been
disappointed by Obama
before, are bracing for
another letdown.
There's not much
political leeway for
the president to clamp
new restrictions on his
own anti-terrorist spy
agencies. Public opinion
polls last summer found
that most Americans
supported the NSAs
collection of telephone
metadata, even though
many believed errone-
ously that the collection
also included the content
of telephone calls. And as
Amy Zegart of Stanford's
Hoover Institution has
noted, almost two-thirds
of Americans support the

assassination of foreign
terrorists. We are not a
squeamish nation.
But if most Americans
- including me ac-
cept that it's potentially
useful for the NSA to
collect all that metadata,
we still need reassurance
that the intelligence
agencies are following
the rules. And that's
where the record of the
last decade of intelli-
gence collection remains
Intelligence officials
and their congressional
overseers insist the NSA
is behaving now. But
that's not what the FISA
court found over the last
five years.
"NSA analysts have
generally not adhered
to the dissemination
restrictions proposed by
the government," Judge
Reggie Walton wrote in a
2009 ruling released last
"NSAs record of
compliance with these
rules has been poor,"
Judge John Bates wrote
in another ruling, whose
date remains unaccount-
ably secret.
Feinstein and
Chambliss, in their
bill, would require the
director of national
intelligence to report
any violations of law to
Congress' intelligence
committees just
once a year, with no

requirement for public
But that's not enough
to restore public confi-
dence in the intelligence
agencies or the FISA
court. Proposals from
Sens. Leahy, Ron Wyden,
D-Ore., and others would
require greater public
disclosure of secret rul-
ings the court has made
and of NSA violations
of the Constitution or
the law. They'd allow the
court to keep informa-
tion secret when needed
for national security, but
they'd end the intelli-
gence agencies' privilege
of violating court orders
with only minimal
oversight from outside.
Snowden probably
hasn't released the
last of his purloined
documents. The U.S.
intelligence community
still faces unpleasant
surprises from his next
disclosures, a battle in
Congress over competing
proposals for reform, and
a long road to restoring
public confidence.
More disclosure isn't the
only answer to those
challenges. But when
it's happening anyway,
thanks to a renegade
contractor, it would be a
useful start.

The GOP's mindless opposition

republicans are op-
posed to President
Obama's deal with
the Iranians whatever
it is.
A couple of minutes
after 9 p.m. on Saturday,
word crossed the news
wires that negotiators in
Geneva had reached an
agreement on Iran's nu-
clear program. Then, at
9:08 p.m. before any
details of the pact were
known Ari Fleischer
delivered his opinion
on the agreement, via
"The Iran deal and
our allies: You can't spell
abandonment without
OBAMA," he wrote.
This is the sort of
trenchant judgment
Fleischer was known
for as chief spokesman
for President George W
Bush at the start of the
Iraq War. His anagram
analysis was so relevant
to the topic that it
deserves application to
his name, too. Turns out
you can't spell "Re: Chief
Liars," "Hi, false crier,"
"Hire Sir Fecal" or "I
relish farce" without ARI

But Fleischer's instant
and reflexive response -
even knees don't jerk as
quickly as he did set
the tone for Republicans.
Three minutes after
Fleischer's tweet came
one in agreement from
Ron Christie, another
veteran of the Bush ad-
ministration. "Precisely,"
he wrote, also without
the benefit of knowing
what was in the agree-
ment. 'A disgraceful
An hour later still
before Obama de-
tailed the accord in
a statement from the
White House John
Cornyn of Texas, the
No. 2 Republican in the
Senate, had analyzed the
administration's motives
in reaching the deal.
"Amazing what WH

will do to distract
attention from 0-care,"
he tweeted at 10:15 p.m.,
19 minutes before the
president spoke.
Aha! So the agreement
to suspend Iran's nuclear
program, negotiated
over several months, was
actually a clever (and
prescient) ruse to turn
attention away from
problems with the health
care law, which surfaced
in the past several weeks.
This was a variant
on the "wag the dog"
accusation, named after
the 1997 film. But in
the movie, and in the
way critics applied the
accusation to President
Bill Clinton, a devious
commander in chief was
distracting attention
from domestic troubles
by waging war.

the first time a president

agree to a permanent

House Majority Leader
Eric Cantor of Virginia
quickly branded the pact
a "mistake." Sen. Marco

"makes a nuclear Iran

And Cornyn kept right
on going, sending out
links to articles titled,
'Abject Surrender by the
United States" and "Our
'Suckers Deal' with Iran."

At 56, Ron was older
than the ideal candidate
for a transplant, and
would be the oldest to

he impressed the doctors
with his health and
mental attitude, and they
put on him a list.
He was swimming in

The 23 reported forcible

for the first six months of

there were 25 in the coun-
ty. That year finished with
44 the highest annual
total reported forcible
rapes since 2000.

numbers for "forcible

offenses include only
rape and attempted rape.
Sodomy and forcible fon-

as "aggravated assaults."

rape crime totals could

Charlotte Harbor.
With that in mind,
a group of business
leaders, local officials
and citizens interested
in promoting the harbor
and driving business to
the area have commis-

demographic study that
explores the feasibility
of bringing to the county
an educational research
center and aquarium
- or similar attraction
- that draws on the
strengths of the harbor.

The results of that
study are set to be
unveiled Wednesday,

of the Charlotte Harbor

is being conducted by

including its capital cost,
size, location, potential
attendance, and five-year
revenue and operating
In addition, the study

graphing linear inequali-
ties and a system of linear
inequalities, graphing a
rational equation, graph-
ing a system of equations,
numbers and working with

compound interest. Each
person who attended this
workshop also received a

admit. Besides the fact
that some of the sites are
behind the gates to what
is supposed to be one of
the most secure research
facilities in the world,
nuclear critics have called
the plan an expensive
glorification of an ugly
chapter in history.
"It is a debasement of
the national parks idea,"
anti-nuclear watchdog
Los Alamos Study Group
co-founder Greg Mello
said when the Interior
Department two years ago
recommended creating
national parks at Los
Alamos; Hanford, Wash.;
and Oak Ridge, Tenn.
He remains opposed to
the plan, saying it will not
provide a comprehensive
picture of the Manhattan
Project, and he notes that
extensive interpretative
museums concerning de-
velopment of the nuclear
bomb already exist.
Supporters, however,
note that good or bad,
the Manhattan Project
transformed history. And
they argue that key sites
that have not already
been bulldozed should be
preserved and the public
should be allowed to visit
"It isn't glorifying
anything," says Ellen
McGehee, historical
facilities manager for Los
Alamos labs. "It's really
more a commemoration.
... History is what it
is. We can't pick and
choose what's historically
The park service, she
said, would help people
learn about the controver-
sies, the people and the
social, political and mil-
itary legacy surrounding
development of nuclear
"There are a lot of
emotions rolled up in this
story," she said. "That's
why the park service is the
best entity to tell this story.
They can approach it as
an outsider. They have no
real interest in how it is
told. They can tell it from
a national perspective."
Among the proposed
park's biggest supporters
are lab workers like
McGehee. She has been
working since an act was
passed in 2004 to study
creation of such parks, to
help identify and preserve
areas in town and within
lab property to include.
Potential park prop-
erties include some
buildings in downtown
Los Alamos, a town that
was essentially created
to support the lab, as
well as 17 buildings in six
"industrial sites" within
the lab's fence. They
include theV-site, where
the first atomic bomb to
be detonated at the Trinity
Site was assembled, as
well as the areas where
the Little Boy and Fat Man
nuclear bombs that were
dropped on Hiroshima
and Nagasaki, respective-
ly, were assembled.
Also on the list is the
Pajarito site, which in-
cludes Pond Cabin and
the Slotin Building. Pond
Cabin had been part of
a boys' school and dude
ranch that was pur-
chased and taken over
to create Los Alamos
lab. It was turned into a
key plutonium research
office after the first
so-called "criticality
accident" killed phys-
icist Harry Daghlian,
prompting officials to
move research to the
cabin in a more remote
area. A few hundred
yards away is the Slotin
Building, where Louis
Alexander Slotin was
killed after a slipped
screwdriver accidentally
began a fission reac-

tion, making him the
second casualty of the
Manhattan Project.

Thanksgiving Day gobbles more Black Friday sales

(AP) -Thanksgiving
Day is no longer all about
turkey: It's eating away at
Black Friday shopping.
U.S. shoppers spent
$9.74 billion on Black
Friday, the day after
Thanksgiving. That's
a drop of 13.2 percent
compared with last year,
according to data released
on Saturday by research
firm ShopperTrak.
The decline appears to
show that more Americans
shopped on the holiday
itself: Combined spending
on Thanksgiving and Black
Friday, which had been
considered the official
start to the holiday buying
season until this year, rose
2.3 percent to $12.3 billion.
The data reflects that
Thanksgiving, which along
with Christmas was one
of two days a year that
most stores were closed,
is becoming an important
day for major retailers.
Black Friday is a time
when big retailers open
early and offer deep dis-
counts, but a few started
opening and offering those
discounts on Thanksgiving
a couple years ago. And
this year, at least a dozen
did so, with a few opening
earlier in the holiday than
they did last year.
The National Retail
Federation, a retail trade
group, predicted that
33 million, or almost a
quarter, of the 140 million
people who planned to
shop during the four-day
holiday weekend that ends
on Sunday, would do so on

hot sauce


Times) After a judge
ordered the partial shut-
down of the Sriracha hot
sauce plant in Irwindale,
Calif, experts must now
determine which parts
of the factory's operation
cause odors a decision
that could affect next year's
sauce supply.
Sauce maker Huy Fong
Foods has already ground
all the chiles for next year's
supply of Sriracha hot
sauce. The raw materials
for its three sauces, Sambal
Oelek, Sriracha and Chili
Garlic, are created during
a three-month harvesting
and production cycle that
concluded earlier this
But the sauce must still
be mixed, poured, bottled
and boxed, and so far, the
city and the factory have
not been able to agree on
where the smell is coming
from or how to mitigate it.
Irwindale City Attorney
Fred Galante said that he
does not want to speculate
whether the injunction will
affect next year's supply
The city and the factory
have retained separate air
quality consultants.
"We have to rely on
the experts to determine
which parts of the opera-
tions have the potential to
cause odors," Galante said.
Huy Fong Foods officials
did not comment spe-
cifically on the ruling or
elaborate on whether the
factory would be able to
continue operations. A
source with knowledge
of the business said there
should be no effect on next
year's supply of hot sauce.
Chief executive David
Tran released a statement
thanking the fans of the hot
sauce for their support. The
statement was largely iden-

tical to a previous statement
released to the Los Angeles
Times, except for a response
to residents claiming that
the odor emanating from
the factory was similar to
that of capsaicin, an active
ingredient in pepper spray.

'Preferred' pronouns gain traction at US colleges

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP)
- The weekly meetings
of Mouthing Off!, a
group for students at
Mills College in Oakland,
Calif., who identify as
gay, lesbian, bisexual or
transgender, always start
the same way. Members
take turns going around
the room saying their
names and the personal
pronouns they want
others to use when
referring to them she,
he or something else.
It's an exercise that
might seem superflu-
ous given that Mills, a
small and leafy liberal
arts school historically
referred to as the Vassar
of the West, only admits
women as undergradu-
ates. Yet increasingly, the
"shes" and "hers" that
dominate the intro-
ductions are keeping
third-person company
with "they," "ze" and
other neutral alternatives
meant to convey a more

On high school and
college campuses and
in certain political and

become an accepted

for professors, dorm
advisers, club sponsors,
workshop leaders and

health care providers at
several schools.
The phenomenon
gained notice in the San
Francisco Bay area in
early November after an
18-year-old student at
a private high school in
Berkeley suffered severe
burns when a 16-year-
old boy set fire to the
student's skirt while the
two were riding a public
bus. The parents of the

where he now moves as if

Landman, 62, is weigh-
ing his options while also
hoping for a cure to the
disease, which can upset a
person's sense of balance
to the point that walking
is impossible. And an
alternative to some of the
current treatments has side
effects that, he's learned,
don't always work.
So, he's turning to

enough money to live on

Strategize for the lowest possible

summer fares to Europe

If you are planning a
summer trip to Europe
and you've looked at
airfares out of Dallas
from May 17 through
Aug. 25, you have
probably found them to
be truly sky-high.
If you think creatively,
though, you could buy
two tickets to get to
Europe, instead of one,
and save a family of four
$2,000 to $3,000 round
There are some great
deals to Europe from
Boston, so you could
book a flight from Dallas
to Boston and then fly to
Europe from there.
Flying from Boston,
there are about 30
European destinations in
the $700-800 range.
As of press time,
there were 20 cities you
could fly to, including
Amsterdam, Rome,
Athens, Prague, Venice
and Milan, with tickets
starting at $712 round

For just under $800,
you can get to most cities
in Germany.
Snap up these airfares
soon because seats will
sell out quickly at these
There are also $270
round-trip fares from
Dallas to Boston for
nonstop travel on
American and JetBlue, for
travel seven days a week.
That price is valid for
departures up to June 24,
so most people would
have ample time to book
a summer trip to Europe
since school lets out the
first week of June.
It's about $40 more
round trip for travel in
late June, July or August.
By comparison, most
of the airfares from
Dallas to Europe are
over $1,500 round trip
for travel in June, July
and August. Some are
even higher for peak July
If you add the June
airfares of $270 from
Dallas to Boston to the
$712 fares from Boston to

Europe, you could fly for
under $1,000 and get two
cities for much less than
the price of one.
The savings for a fam-
ily of four could pay for
a hotel room and maybe
even your meals.
You can save the most
if you travel in late May
or June. You can also save
for travel to Europe in
July and August, but not
as much.
Be aware that some
cities are more popular
than others, so seats can
be limited to Europe for
travel in July, but cheap
seats are wide open for
travel starting Aug. 1
through Sept. 30.
It might be a good
idea to fly to Boston a
day or two ahead, check
out the city, and avoid
the stress of making a
European flight with a
tight connection.
Also, if your return
flight arrives in the
evening, you'll want to
stay overnight because
customs delays could
make it difficult to get a

late flight from Boston
back to Dallas.

Why not start the New
Year with a 20 percent
discount to the West
If you act fast, Virgin
America has a promo
code that offers up to 20
percent off fares for trav-
el Jan. 11 through March
6. It must be redeemed
by Tuesday.
The best prices appear
to be for nonstop from
Dallas to Los Angeles or
San Francisco, and there
are connecting flights
available to Las Vegas,

N Korea says detained American tourist apologizes

SEOUL, South Korea
(AP) North Korea
state media claimed
Saturday that an elderly
U.S. tourist detained for
more than a month has
apologized for alleged
crimes during the Korean
War and for "hostile acts"
against the state during a

showing 85-year-old
Merrill Newman,
wearing glasses, a blue
button-down shirt and
tan trousers, reading his
alleged apology, which
was dated Nov. 9 and

Pyongyang has been
accused of previously
coercing statements
from detainees. There
was no way to reach
Newman and determine
the circumstances of the
alleged confession. But it
was riddled with stilted
English and grammatical
errors, such as "I want
not punish me."
"I have been guilty of

crimes against DPRK

purportedly wrote in a
four-page statement,

Egypt panel begins voting

on draft constitution

panel amending Egypt's
suspended constitution
began voting Saturday
on some 250 changes,
the first step toward
democratic rule following
the July military coup
that ousted the country's
The constitution before
the 50-member commit-
tee makes drastic changes
in ensuring civil liberties,
fighting discrimination,
criminalizing torture, pro-
tecting religious freedoms
and giving lawmakers
power to remove the pres-
ident. Yet the draft also
allows Egypt's powerful
military to choose its own

chief and try civilians in
military tribunals.
The constitutional
changes come amid a
heavy-handed crackdown
on dissent that's left the
country largely divided
between supporters and
opponents of the military
that toppled Mohammed
Morsi, the country's first
freely elected president.
"This is the path of
rescue from the current
condition," said Amr
Moussa, the elder
Egyptian statesman lead-
ing the constitutional
panel. "It is the transi-
tion from disturbances
to stability and from
economic stagnation

to development."
The military suspended
the Islamist-drafted,
voter-approved 2012
constitution in the July 3
coup that ousted Morsi.
The constitutional panel,
dominated by secularists,
has been working on
changes as part of a mili-
tary-backed timeline that
calls for voters to approve
it. It plans for parliamen-
tary and presidential
elections to be held early
next year.
On Saturday, 48 panel
members began voting
on the changes in a
session aired live on state
television. Most articles
passed unanimously.

At the Indian River Isles
subdivision south of
Rockledge, so much muck
coats the canal bottom
that homeowners who
pay a premium for lagoon
access often run amok
with frustration when they
try to launch their boats.
"Most of the year,
none of them get out of
here," said Doug Murphy,
president of one of the
subdivision's property
owners associations.
His community is
among many countywide
with old canals clogged
by black, viscous gunk.
An estimated 5 million to
7 million cubic yards of
muck blankets the lagoon
bottom in Brevard County
alone, the legacy of more
than a half-century of
runoff and erosion. The
muck is mostly soil from
construction sites, farms
and homes along the
lagoon's tributaries. But
grass clippings, algae and
other plants also contrib-
ute, as do past decades
of fertilizer and sewage
entering the lagoon. Those
nutrients feed too much
plant growth, and when
the excess algae and other
plants die, they settle out
along the lagoon bottom
as noxious muck.
The muck also carries
metals from cars, power
plants, paints and elec-
tronics into the estuary.
Those cling to clays from
sod and construction sites,
flow into stormwater, then
ooze into the estuary.
And the problem goes
well beyond just a navi-
gational hazard. Brevard's
160 miles of finger canals
and other channels along
the lagoon are the estu-
ary's last line of defense
before seagrass-smoth-
ering muck reaches
the lagoon at large. So
homeowners in Indian
River Isles and elsewhere
say local and state govern-
ment ought to help dredge
their private canals and
the lagoon tributaries that
flow by their backyards.
"We just want them to

pay for what they dump
into it," Murphy said. He
and his neighbors blame
the state and county for
not properly maintaining
nearby stormwater ditches
and pipes, which carry
dirt, rotting plants and
polluted runoff into their
Muck suspends easily in
the water, clouding it up
and limiting the growth
of seagrass, the staple
food of manatees and the
most important habitat
for fish and other lagoon
life. It also contributes to
bacterial decay, which
consumes oxygen from
the bottom sediment and
water, potentially causing
fish kills
Canals first became
popular here during the
housing boom in the early
days of the Space Age as
developers used dredge-
and-fill techniques to
essentially create addition-
al waterfront property on
which to build homes.
Now, more than a half
century of muck has built
up in the lagoon and its
tributaries, more than
10 feet thick in some
places. In some spots, like
the Eau Gallie River, the
dirt, sand and mud foil
even pontoon boats, which
draw only inches of water.
Biologists say the muck
must go. But dredging up
enough of the stuff to ben-
efit lagoon water quality
would be expensive, and
funding is elusive.

arrested after authorities
say he fired a shotgun into
a neighbor's home during
a Thanksgiving gathering.
The Manatee County
Sheriff's Office reports
that 23-year-old Joshua
Gennell was charged with
two counts of attempted
murder and several other
charges. He was being
held Friday without bail.
Gennell had apparently
been a guest at the gather-
ing but was asked to leave
shortly after midnight
Friday because of rude
behavior and drinking.
Deputies say Gennell went
home and returned with
a pump-action shotgun,
which he fired into the air.
When two men from the
gathering confronted him,
he reportedly shot at them
and missed. Authorities
say Gennell then walked
up to a window and fired
into the living room.
No injuries were

Thai political protesters clash violently, 1 dead

Aggressive political
protests in the Thai
capital turned violent
late Saturday with at least
one man killed and five
wounded by gunshots in
street fighting between
supporters and opponents
of Prime Minister Yingluck
It was not immediately
known who fired the
shots or what side the
victims were on. National
Police Deputy Spokesman
Anucha Romyanan said
the dead man was a
21-year-old male with two
bullet wounds.
The violence in the

short run may stir fears
of further instability like
what plagued the country
during related political
conflicts in 2006, 2008
and 2010. Any escalation
of violence is likely to
scare away tourists who
come to Thailand by the
millions and contribute
a huge chunk to the
But it may help the gov-
ernment by undermining
the claims of its oppo-
nents to be carrying out
a nonviolent campaign
of civil disobedience. The
violence is likely to scare
away some supporters
who would otherwise

attend the opposition's
Matters were feared to
come to a head Sunday,
when the protesters
vowed to seize the
well-guarded prime
minister's offices.
The demonstrators
are seeking to topple
Yingluck's government,
which they believe serves
the interests of her broth-
er, former Prime Minister
Thaksin Shinawatra, who
was ousted by a 2006
military coup after being
accused of corruption and
abuse of power.
The authorities have ex-
ercised extreme restraint

over the past week as the
protesters besieged and
occupied parts of various
government ministries
and offices, aware that
using force could tip pub-
lic opinion and perhaps
become an excuse for the
military to take power in
the name of restoring or-
der. Conventional wisdom
in the Thai capital has
been that the protesters
have been seeking that.
A special police-led
peacekeeping agency said
Saturday that the military
agreed to send 2,730
personnel to help with
security on the streets

China claims victory

in cleaning Internet

Chinese government has
declared victory in clean-
ing up what it considers
rumors, negativity and
unruliness from online
discourse, while critics
say the moves have sup-
pressed criticism of the
government and ruling
Communist Party.
Beijing launched the
campaign this summer,
arresting dozens of people
for spreading rumors,
creating new penalties for
people who post libelous
information and calling in
the country's top bloggers
for talks urging them to
guard the national interest
and uphold social order.
At the same time, govern-
ment agencies at all levels
have boosted their online
presence to control the
message in cyberspace.
"If we should describe
the online environment in
the past as good mingling
with the bad, the sky
of the cyberspace has

cleared up now because
we have cracked down
on online rumors," Ren
Xianliang, vice minister
of the State Internet
Information Office, said
during a rare meeting
this week with foreign
A study by an Internet
opinion monitoring
service under the party-
owned People's Daily
newspaper showed the
number of posts by a sam-
ple of 100 opinion leaders
declined by nearly 25 per-
cent and were overtaken
by posts from government
microblog accounts.
"The positive force
on the Internet has
preliminarily taken back
the microphone, and
the positive energy has
overwhelmed the nega-
tive energy to uphold the
online justice," said Zhu
Huaxin, the monitoring
service's general secretary,
according to a transcript
posted by state media.

loss was the Tarpons'
second in a row after
starting the season with
three wins.
Alexis led all scorers

After all, it would be hard to find a
better bargain in the NFL than Mike
Glennon. So many teams discounted the
talent of the 6-foot-6, 225-pound rookie
from N.C. State that he admits being
overlooked until the third round of the
draft put a chip on his shoulder pads.
"That still lights a little fire in me,"
Glennon, 23, said. "But I like to look at it
in a positive way. I want to prove that the
Bucs made the right decision. I want to
do it for my coaches that believed in me
and for the players on my team. Overall,

it's more about proving those that be-
lieved in me right than proving those that
didn't believe in me wrong."
Glennon is the toast of Tampa Bay and
the talk of the league after being named
the NFC's rookie of the month last week.

Tampa Bay quarterback Mike Glennon is 3-1 in his last
four starts and is coming off a rookie of the month
honor in the NFC.

Scott holds edge on Rory

Scott shot a 4-under
68 Saturday to take a
four-shot lead over Rory
Mcllroy heading into
the final round of the
Australian Open and move
closer to an Australian
triple crown.
Scott is trying to match
Robert Allenby's 2005
accomplishment of win-
ning the Open, Australian
Masters and Australian
PGA in succession. Scott
also won the Masters at
Augusta in April.
Scott shot a course
record 62 on the first
day and followed with

a second-round 70.
Saturday's round of six
birdies and two bogeys
moved him to 16-under
200 for the tournament.
Mcllroy started the day
two shots behind Scott
and lost ground with a
bogey and double-bogey,
finishing with a 70.
Mcllroy is vying for his
first victory of the year.
Australians Richard
Green, Matthew Jones
and Max McCardle shared
third place at 8 under,
eight shots off the pace.
Scott's round on
Saturday means he is now
51 under par for his three
tournaments in Australia
this year.

Race for rushing title:
With all the bye weeks behind us, the
schedule has leveled off for a group
of five backs in pursuit of the rushing
title. NFL leader LeSean McCoy of the
Philadelphia Eagles (1,009 yards)
leads Minnesota's Adrian Peterson
by 12 yards. They are followed by
Washington's Alfred Morris (970 yards),
Seattle's Marshawn Lynch (925) and
Kansas City's Jamaal Charles (918).

Can the Colts get it
together? The problems for
Indianapolis, which has lost two of
three with each loss a blowout, are
surprising. What's not surprising,
however, is the ineffectiveness of
running backTrent Richardson,
whom the Colts traded for earlier in
the season. He had five carries for
two yards against the Rams and is
averaging 2.9 yards per carry this
season. The Tennessee Titans head to
Indy today only two games out of first
in the AFC South.

Are the Cardinals legit?
Not sure that will be answered this
weekend when Arizona travels to
Philadelphia, but he Cardinals sure
are making a push. They have won
four consecutive. The first three of
those wins were against the league's
abominations Atlanta, Houston
and Jacksonville but last week,
the Cardinals smacked Indianapolis
40-11. They're doing it by stuffing the
run. Arizona is second in the NFL in
rushing yards allowed per game, at a
scant 81.3.

Broncos getting back on
the horse: Denver (9-2) heads
to Kansas City to face the 9-2 Chiefs
a week after Peyton Manning was
again snuffed out by Bill Belichick.
Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali is listed
as questionable, but says he expects
to play. But, the Chiefs sack leader and
Hali's fellow linebacker, Justin Houston,
will not. That could mean a day of
eased pressure and big numbers for

Parity or mediocrity, you
decide: The league is flooded with
teams near the .500 mark. It seems
each week, a handful of them appear
to be getting their act together only to
have an embarrassing loss. Today, the
NewYork Jets, Miami Dolphins, San
Diego Chargers, St. Louis Rams and
Tennessee Titans, all 5-6, could move
to .500 (the Jets and Dolphins play
each other). If the Chicago Bears and
Philadelphia Eagles lose, they will be
6-6. A massive glut of mediocre.
Todd Dybas,
News Tribune (Tacoma, Wash.)

Carson Palmer is one factor in
Arizona's resurgence. Last Sunday,
he became the first quartreback in
Cardinals history with a completion
rate of 70 percent, 300 yards passing
and a quarterback rating of 110 in
consecutive games. He also joined
the 30,000-yards club this season.

hold off



Bynum and Dion Waiters
each scored 20 points, and
the Cleveland Cavaliers
held off a late rally by the
Chicago Bulls for a 97-93
victory Saturday night.
Bynum, who said
earlier in the season
he was contemplating
retirement as he attempts
a comeback from surgery
on both knees, had his
best all-around game of
the season. The 7-footer
was 8 of 14 from the field,
blocked five shots and had
six rebounds.
Cleveland, which had
lost five straight and eight
of nine, built a 12-point
lead in fourth quarter,
but the Bulls rallied for
an 88-87 edge on Tony
Snell's basket with 3:59

Wizards 108, Hawks 101:
In Washington, John Wall had 26 points
and 12 assists, Trevor Ariza scored 24
points and made five 3-pointers, and
the Wizards beat Atlanta.

Timberwolves 112,
Mavericks 106: In Dallas, Kevin
Martin had 27 points with some key
baskets late, Kevin Love had his usual
double-double and Minnesota snapped
a three-game losing streak.

Rockets 112, Spurs 106:
In San Antonio, James Harden scored
31 points and Houston overcame a
furious second-half rally to hand the
Spurs their first home defeat.

Friday's late game: Tim
Duncan scored 17 of his 19 points in
the first half and the San Antonio Spurs
beat the Orlando Magic 109-91 in
Orlando. San Antonio scored 17 straight
points in the second quarter, turning a
one-point edge into a 58-40 lead.

most important and frag-
ile in professional sports.
Schiano's unwavering
support and confidence
enabled Glennon to per-
form without the pres-
sure that accompanies
some first-year players.
"Right from the
get-go, right when that
decision was made, he
said, 'You're our guy,
and you're our guy going
forward,'" Glennon said.
"I knew that I had to play
well. But at the same
time, he was sticking
with me, and that gave
me confidence in myself
that this team is behind
me and there's no reason
to worry about anything
Glennon's work
ethic has never been in
question. Long before he
was the starter, he beat
coaches to work and was
among the last to leave.
"The guy is a football
junkie," offensive coordi-
nator Mike Sullivan said.
But seldom do rookie
quarterbacks play as effi-
ciently as Glennon. Troy

rating in 1989, when the
Cowboys went 1-15. Even
Peyton Manning threw

Schiano points to
Glennon's intelligence
(he graduated with two
degrees and a 3.8 grade
point average) as a big
reason for his ability to
retain information.
"Whether he was
a football player or a
lawyer or whatever, he's a
very bright guy," Schiano
said. "So he has the
ability to process infor-
mation. He just happens
to be a quarterback. It's
rare for a guy his age to
be able to do that."
Case in point: Leading
by a field goal in the
fourth quarter at Detroit,
Glennon was flushed
out of the pocket.
Rather than throw the
ball away, which would
have stopped the clock,
he took a 7-yard sack.
The decision was open
to debate because it
forced a longer field

goal, from 50 yards, that
Rian Lindell missed. But
during the play, Glennon
remembered when he
ran out of bounds in a
similar situation that
nearly cost the Bucs
against the Dolphins two
weeks earlier. Sunday's
decision enabled the
Bucs to burn 40 seconds
off of the clock.

No. 1 Tide rolled on final play

AUBURN, Ala. -That
crazy tipped pass for
a long game-winning
touchdown is now the
second-most stunning
and improbable play of
Auburn's season.
Yes, the Tigers found
a way to top "The
Immaculate Deflection."
Maybe call this one
Auburn's happiest return.
Chris Davis returned a
missed field-goal attempt
more than 100 yards for
a touchdown on the final
play to lift No. 4 Auburn
to a 34-28 victory over
No. 1 Alabama, upending
the two-time defending
national champions' BCS
hopes and preserving the
Tigers' own.
Davis caught the ball
about 9 yards deep
in the end zone after
freshman Adam Griffith's
57-yard attempt fell
short. He then sprinted
down the left sideline
and cut back with
nothing but teammates
around him in a second
straight hard-to-fathom
finish for the Tigers
(11-1, 7-1 Southeastern

Auburn clinched a spot
in the SEC championship
game with the stunning
victory over the power-
house from across the
state. The Crimson Tide
(11-1, 7-1) seemed at
several times poised to
continue its run toward
the first three-peat in
modern college football.
Asked if it was the
biggest win of his
career, Tigers coach Gus
Malzahn said: "It ranks
right up there." But he
said he'd "probably" still
celebrate just like he has
since his high school
coaching days: With a
Waffle House meal.
The Tigers put it away
just when overtime
seemed their best hope.
Alabama had gotten
one second restored and
one more play after a
review of T.J. Yeldon's run
to the Auburn 39.
That gave the Tide
coach Nick Saban a
chance to try the long
field goal and now
he probably wished he
never did.
The entire field looked
like a sea of orange shak-
ers as the celebration


Auburn fans storm the field after the Tigers' 34-28 win against top-ranked Alabama.

climactic finale of one of
the biggest Iron Bowls in

A team that went 3-9
last season and had been

destroyed by Alabama
91-14 combined the past
two seasons will play for
an SEC title and perhaps
a trip to the BCS champi-

Undefeated Ohio State,

which was third in the
BCS standings this week
and figures to move
up to second behind
Florida State, will have
something to say about
which teams play for the

national title, too. No
doubt the Buckeyes, who
won their own thriller
against Michigan earlier
in the day, were celebrat-
ing Auburn's win almost
as much as the Tigers.



Henry Josey broke loose
for the go-ahead score on
a 57-yard run with 3:34

No. 10 South Carolina

South Carolina (10-2) won its 18th

record set earlier this year. For Shaw, it
capped the senior's home career at a
perfect 17-0 as a starter in the sweetest
way possible.

CALGARY, Alberta-
Steven Holcomb piloted
USA-1 to a win in the
opening World Cup
four-man bobsled race of
the season on Saturday,
a perfect start to the
year for the driver who
guided the Americans to
a gold medal at the 2010
Vancouver Olympics.
The team of Holcomb,
Curt Tomasevicz, Steve
Langton and Chris Fogt
finished two runs on the
Calgary track in 1 minute,
48.56 seconds. There was
a two-way tie for second
between Germany, piloted
by Maximilian Arndt,
and Russia, piloted by
Alexander Zubkov. Both
those sleds were 0.09
seconds off the pace set by
The U.S. took home
silver and bronze
medals in the women's
race. Canada's Kaillie
Humphries, the Olympic
favorite, easily won the
season-opener on her
home track, finishing in
1:52.77. Elana Meyers
and Aja Evans won the
silver, 0.56 seconds back.
And Jamie Greubel and
Katie Eberling teamed
for the bronze, another
0.29 seconds off the pace.
Jazmine Fenlator and Lolo
Jones finished tied for
15th, 1.90 seconds behind
the winning time....
In Winterberg, Germany, world
champions Tobias Wendl and Tobias
Arlt claimed their second luge World
Cup victory of the season, extending
their lead in the series standings. The
Germans clocked the fastest times
in both runs on the Hochsauerland
course to finish in a combined time
of 1 minute, 27.491 seconds for their
19th career victory. Italians Christian
Oberstolz and Patrick Gruber were
second in 1:28.040.


Widow of Bengals'
founder dies: Mary Brown, the
widow of the late Cincinnati Bengals
founder and coach Paul Brown, died
at her Milford, Ohio, home, at the
age of 84, according to the Cincinnati
Enquirer. Paul Brown died in August
1991, but Mary Brown still represented
him at many events, including the 50th
anniversary of the Pro Football Hall of
Fame last summer....
Nebraska athletic director Shawn
Eichorst issued a statement expressing
support for coach Bo Pelini and his
staff, quashing speculation that the
sixth-year coach's job was in jeopardy
following a disappointing regular
season. The Cornhuskers are 8-4,5-3
in the Big Ten, after their 38-17 loss
to Iowa on Friday. Pelini is 57-24 at
Nebraska, but the school has not won a
conference title since 1999.


Gut wins super-G:
In Beaver Creek, Colo., Lara Gut
of Switzerland won a second
consecutive World Cup race, edging
a strong Austrian contingent in the
super-G. Gut finished in 1 minute,
18.42 seconds. Elisabeth Goergl of
Austria originally took second but
was disqualified for improper ski
equipment, bumping up teammates
Anna Fenninger and Nicole Hosp to
second and third ...
In Kuusamo, Finland, Justyna
Kowalczyk of Poland earned a
second consecutive victory to start
the women's cross-country World
Cup season, beating triple Olympic
champion Marit Bjoergen to win
a 5-kilometer race. In the men's
10K race, Lukas Bauer of the Czech
Republic won ahead of Eldar Roenning
of Norway and Russia's Dmitry
Japarov. Kowalczyk finished the
classical-style race in 13 minutes, 33.7
seconds, with Bjoergen finishing 3
seconds behind. Another Norwegian,
Therese Johaug, was 14.6 seconds
behind in third place. ...
In Kuusamo, Finland, world
champion Eric Frenzel of Germany
won the season-opening Nordic
Combined World Cup event, beating
Joergen Graabak of Norway.

"That's what we try to
do; we're down a point
guard so we've been
trying to get the offense
generated through the
defense," Jensen Beach
coach Pat Kelly said.
With the game tied at 9
after one quarter, Jensen
Beach (3-2) produced a
9-0 run, seven coming
from Alexis, that effec-
tively put the game out
with Charlotte missing
seniors Dwayne and
Dwight Reynolds for the
second consecutive game.
Jensen Beach, which
was missing its starting
point guard, Willie
Battistini, had Carl
Aumoithe and freshman
Marcus Coleman take up
the slack.
Charlotte (3-2) had
some success in the third
quarter. Ti'eron Tyler got
involved in the offense
and pulled the Tarpons
within eight. But Alexis
and Anqueon Baker (11
points) were too much as
the Falcons pulled away.
"Alexis is a great player,
he could help some
college team out because
he can block shots, play
off the dribble and make
plays," Kelly said.
Massolio, looking for
one of his seniors to step
up, saw none coming,
and with Fort Myers
coming up Tuesday in the
Tarpons' district opener,
it's a problem that needs
to be addressed.
"We need our seniors to
step up. we have a lot of
them and they didn't step
up," Massolio said. "They
had better learn what it's
all about.
You can't live on what
you've done in the past,
this is a new season."

added free throws to give
the Sharks a 69-65 lead
with 3:56 left.
Brian Thatcher coun-

Does Bryant

deal resonate

with Heat's trio?

When it comes to con-
tracts and team building
in the NBA, you have to
start from the premise
that you can't have it both
That doesn't mean that
it's fair, just or equitable.
It's not, particularly when
considering that the very
foundation of the league
is built on the iconic
value of such a limited
number of players. But
it's the platform agreed
upon through collective
Which brings us to
what Kobe Bryant got
this past week from the
Lakers, what he said
about what he got from
the Lakers, and how the
process previously has
and will again impact the
Whether the salary-cap
is fair (it is not) and
whether the luxury tax is
too oppressive (it is) are,
at this stage, moot issues.
They are in place, they
are part of the process,
agreed upon (albeit
grudgingly) by both
players and ownership.
It is within that
framework that the NBA
operates. Yes, there are
numerous exemptions,
exceptions and loopholes
that allow teams and
players to skirt certain
limitations. In Bryant's
case, it opened the door
for a two-year extension
that works out to about
$24 million for each
additional season.
Is he worth it at this
advanced age and state
of somewhat declining
health? Sure. He is about
more than shots, passes,
defense. He is the incred-
ibly successful face of the
But it is about more
than that. It is about a
salary cap that is finite
and team-building pie
that can be sliced only
so many ways before the
slivers become useless.
With Bryant at his
future price point, albeit
one slightly less than his
current salary, the math
says only one max-level
free agent can be added
to the Lakers' mix, with
that coming at the price
of allowing Pau Gasol
to walk (unless Pau is
willing to do what Kobe
wasn't). When it comes to

championship potential,
the Lakers' new math
simply doesn't add up.
Yes, Bryant's point
about refusing to allow
the league to diminish the
value of league-founda-
tion superstars is noble.
But in the absence of
some sort of legacy-play-
er salary-cap exception,
this still remains about
choices. The very choices
LeBron James, Dwyane
Wade and Chris Bosh
weighed in 2010 when
they came together with
the Heat.
So each took a little
less, and Pat Riley went
out of his way to oth-
erwise maximize those
contracts, including
sacrificing numerous
future first-round picks to
re-inflate the contracts of
James and Bosh.
This past offseason,
Wade told the Sun
Sentinel that he appre-
ciated he might have to
do it again, with opt-out
windows opening this
summer for the Heat's Big
"When you have guys
that want to be a part
of something, that want
to be together, you can
get away with a few
things that you might
not be able to get away
with when guys are just
looking for their big deal,"
Wade said.
Translation: Money is
good, but far more fun
when accompanied by
An irony is that the
same week Bryant justi-
fied his extension, a filing
in Los Angeles Superior
Court from deposed
union chief Billy Hunter
claimed Bryant was a
driving force behind the
union accepting the new
agreement, one replete
with salary-cap and
luxury-tax limitations.
The question now
is whether Bryant's
extension becomes the
framework for LeBron,
Wade, Bosh, whether NBA
free agency going forward
reverts to a cash grab,
righteous indignation
about ever-profiting
ownership demanding
superstar sacrifice.
Or whether, as has so
often becomes the case in
recent years, Kobe Bryant
again stands alone.

before a crane dramat-

the country under even

not the only problem for

Giving back...

I recently attended a breakfast
that really showcased what is great
about Charlotte County. The people
and the businesses are very active
in many philanthropic endeavors,
and many of these fine people were
at this morning meeting. It was held
by the Association of Fundraising
Professionals, Charlotte Harbor
Chapter. The occasion was National
Philanthropy Day. The breakfast at the
Isles Yacht club was a splendid buffet.
The program was to give awards for
programs in Charlotte County.
Awards were given in the following
categories: civic partner, faith-based
partner, corporate partner, youth in
philanthropy, professional fundraiser,
fundraising volunteer, and individual
philanthropist. In the last category,
two awards were granted because of
a tie.
The first category is the reason that
I was attending this breakfast. The
civic partner given the 2013 award
was Charlotte Harbor Rotary Club. I
have been a member of the club for
27 years and proudly wear my Rotary
Pin. We earned this award because
of our hosting of a monthly Charity
Quiz. For this live trivia game, we
encourage the formation of teams of
4 to 6 people who compete with each
other. If you're not part of a team, we
can place you with one on the eve-
ning of the event.
Every month a different charity is
asked to partner with Rotary each
month by promoting attendance.

Surgeon test-drives Google Glass in the operating room


When Dr. Heather Evans, a trauma
surgeon at Seattle's Harborview
Medical Center, stepped into the
operating room wearing an eyeglass-
es-like, Internet-connected device
known as Google Glass, she quickly
realized its potential and its pitfalls.
With Glass, if she was in the mid-
dle of surgery and encountered an
unexpected or unfamiliar condition
- a rare tumor, say she could
use real-time video to show it to the
world's expert and receive help.
With Glass' eye-level screen, which
projects information right onto the
wearer's retina, she could instantly see
relevant parts of a patient's chart or
get lab results.
And she would never have to put
down her surgical instruments or turn
away from her patient on the operat-
ing table.
As a teacher, she could have her
students wear Glass and see through
their eyes just where they were having
trouble as they learned a difficult
procedure putting in a large, intra-
venous catheter known as a "central
line," for example.
Evans is one of about 8,000 people
around the country selected by
Google as "explorers," testing and
experimenting with uses for Glass,
expected to be available for sale next
Like her fellow surgeon-explorers,
Evans won the chance to spend
$1,500 on the device by penning a
winning tweet early this year, finish-
ing the phrase: .ifihadglass.....
With a computer in the earpiece,
and a tiny, eye-level rectangle that
can project text, maps and other
information to the wearer's eye, Glass
responds to voice commands and can
take pictures, stream videos, make
phone calls and do other tasks.
Think of it as a smartphone, wear-
able video camera and computer
rolled into one, with the ability to
"see" and instantly transmit -
almost precisely what the wearer is
Like other surgeons, Evans is
excited about the potential of this
new device. But she also has learned
that Glass has technical issues that,
for now, make it less than ideal in the
operating room, as well as difficult
privacy concerns.
Some arise because of complex
federal privacy laws, which govern the

Dr. Heather Evans of Seattle tested Google Glass during surgery realizing its benefits, quick access to the patient's medical records for one, and
downsides, interacting with the device took her concentration away from the patient. She only wore the device for a short time in surgery and with
the patient's permission.

Other privacy issues come up lui-,t
from wearing Glass.
If she wore Glass down the io,,pital
hallway, Evans said, she could be
accused of violating privacy.

Boomers guide elderly loved ones through lifestyle changes

Helping your parents deal with the
challenges of aging can be stressful
and requires an understanding of
personal values and needs.
And there's no one way to do it.
"There's all kinds of stress that
people go through," said David
Bialik, licensed independent clinical
social worker with the Center for
Psychiatric Care in Grand Forks, N.D.
"Everyone is different."
People may need to consider hiring
aides to help with tasks in the home
or moving their parents to an assist-
ed-living facility or a nursing home.
Determining the best course of
action "depends on what the par-
ents would want," he said. A parent
"might want to stay out of a higher-
care environment.
"When do you say, 'Mom and Dad,
you need to go'" somewhere that
better fits their needs?
Bialik moved them from Florida
into his Grand Forks home. The
experience of looking after them and
addressing their needs has provided
insight that he draws from when
counseling others who are dealing
with similar concerns, he said.
In therapy sessions, he has seen
baby boomers who at the point
when they thought they'd have more
time and freedom to do what they
want are finding that their parents
need more help.
"It builds up," he said. "You notice

they don't drive so well anymore.
They're kind of confused, but still
doing pretty well. It takes a while."
Other people he counsels are still
busy with their own children at
home, trying to be present for them
and their activities, while also han-
dling their parents' increasing needs.
Suddenly, you're left with the
pressures of your job and other
obligations and interests, he said.
"There's a ton of stress that goes
along with it."
And guilt.
"People think, '(My parents) need
help. What do I do? They raised me.
I'm supposed to do this for them.
I should be doing these things
If outside help is needed, elderly
parents may ask, "Why do I have
to have a stranger come into my
house?" when they may prefer a
family member.
Taking on the task of helping aging
parents adjust to changing needs
opens a Pandora's Box of emotions,
Bialik said.
It's normal to feel "all kinds of emo-
tions" as parents lose capabilities,
he said. "For any feeling you have,
there's usually an opposite feeling."
Anger may be fueled by feelings of
being cheated; you've lost what you
once had.
"The frustration is with your own
losses," he said. "Independence is
lost, the parent is changing. (Their
aging) makes you more aware of your
own aging."

If your parent has become very
ill, he or she "may not be the same
person," he said. "There's a person-
ality change. We get shocked. You
don't recognize them, and they don't
recognize you.
"Try to not get angry at them for
getting old. It's our own disappoint-
ment about aging that can be hard.
The question is how to turn it into
something meaningful."
Signs of mental and physical de-
cline can spark a deeper realization
in children of aging parents.
"There's the existential loss. You're
watching as they lose abilities," he
said. "We're losing the parent we
It's the finiteness of life "that gives
us perspective," he said. "It's not
easy (but) it's real, it's complicated.
And we need to find ways to give
ourselves time to think about what it
means to our existence."
Bialik encourages people to
"recognize and have empathy" for
elders who are themselves coping
with changes.
"With older people who have a fair
amount of their own mental facili-
ties left, they're trying to maintain
a sense of dignity. They're going
through losses, too.
"It's not that they're stubborn.
Certain parts of life are going away."
Be supportive, he said. "Let them
know you're going to help them
through it."
Living in their current home may
have become unsafe, he said. "They

*Communicate with the older adult to figure out
what he or she needs.
*Think about your own concerns, and gather input
from siblings or other close family members.
*Don't take on the role of a parent. If the person
needing care is still mentally alert, keep him or
her part of the decision making.
*Ask siblings what each is going to contribute
(physically, financially).
*Find out what other people, who face similar
concerns, are doing.
*Design a plan of action with other family
members ahead of time.
*Keep communication open with family members
- and accept how people deal with things
*Assign roles to those involved in the caregiving.
*Make sure necessary legal documents are in
place, such as a health care directive and a power
of attorney.
*Take care of yourself and be willing to accept
help from others.
*Don't be afraid to ask for help.
*Seek out resources in the community, through
government agencies or nonprofit organizations.
may be using a ladder when they
shouldn't" or other conditions may
threaten their well-being.
Avoiding these issues may lead to
"decisions that are not in their best
interests," he said. "Like with a child,
we say 'no' because it's better (for

University of Virginia interventional cardiologist Dr. Scott Lim led a study finding that a minimally invasive procedure is the first effective
treatment for patients who are at high risk for standard open-heart surgery for a leaking heart valve. The U.Va. Health System is among the
first hospitals in the country to offer this procedure for select high-risk patients with severe degenerative mitral regurgitation. The U.Va. Heart
Valve team trains physicians from around the world to perform this procedure. Sarasota Memorial Hospital is among 75 facilities in the United
States engaging in a trial of the device.

'Polypill' offers cost-effective

approach to preventing heart disease


If you might might be at risk
of cardiovascular disease, would you
be more likely to take a constellation
of preventative medications, or just
That's the thinking behind the
"polypill" a single combination pill
that could reduce cardiovascular dis-
ease and stroke in Latin Americans
by up to 21 percent at a cost of about
$35 per quality adjusted life year
gained, according to a study led by
a University of Wisconsin School of
Medicine and Public Health research
"Our simulation study showed that
a pill that combines aspirin, a drug
that lowers blood cholesterol (a sta-
tin), and three drugs that lower blood
pressure could be one of the most
cost-effective health interventions to
reduce heart attack, stroke and other
cardiovascular health risks," said
study leader Dr. Leonelo Bautista,
associate professor of population
health sciences.
In addition, "If you give only
one pill to people who are at high
risk of cardiovascular disease, they
will comply better than if you give
them two or three pills," he added.
"You have to keep in mind that
we're talking mostly about primary
prevention people are not really
sick so if you decide to take a pill
to prevent something that you don't
know whether it's going to happen
or not, it's just a probability, people
might buy into it.
"But the idea is that if you select
people at high risk, and treat them
with this combination of drugs
without investing much time and
effort following up with specific risk
factors, you can get more benefit
than if you treat each individual risk
factor separately."
Bautista led a team that included
academics and public health leaders
from across South America, Central
America and the Caribbean.
"This is not a new concept,"
Bautista explained. "There have been
other studies on other populations
in Europe. There was also an analysis
by an investigator from Harvard
University that examined developing
countries and then did a study for
Latin America. What was different in
our case is that when previous inves-
tigators did their studies there was
no actual information on the effects
of a polypill. Previous information
was speculative because we didn't
have any trials."
The study looked at the costs
of treating people at high risk of
developing cardiovascular disease
with a polypill and the benefits of
that intervention in terms of gains in
quality-adjusted life years (QALY), a
measure that takes into account both
the quantity and quality of life gen-
erated by a health care intervention.
The study found the pill could reduce
the lifetime risk of cardiovascular
disease by 15 percent in women and
21 percent in men.
The results of the study suggest
that the pill should be offered to
women at high risk of developing
cardiovascular disease and to all men
55 years and older.
Using the polypill in these groups
would result in a cost of about $35

per quality-adjusted life year gained.
The polypill was not only cost-ef-
fective for preventing cardiovascular
disease and stroke, but was also
cost-effective compared with many
interventions already in use in Latin
America. For instance, the cost of $35
per QALY for the polypill compares
to $56 per QALY for annual screening
for cervical cancer, $700 per QALY
for eye exams to check for diabetic
retinopathy, or $1,020 per QALY for
the use of angiotensin-converting
enzyme (ACE) inhibitors for blood
pressure control.
The per capital gross national
income in the countries included in
the study ranged from $4,710 in Peru
to $15,500 in Puerto Rico. In all coun-
tries the additional cost of gaining
one QALY was many times lower
than the per capital gross national
income, the recommended guide-
line to identify if an intervention is
"By all measures, this type of inter-
vention would be cost-effective, and
could also be cost-saving," Bautista
said, adding that the findings of this
type of study can help governments
in defining public health policies to
prevent cardiovascular diseases.
The next step is for each country to
review the studies and make deci-
sions on whether this is an approach
they want to adopt, based on cost.
"Some people might say there are
issues with side effects and com-
plications," Bautista said, "but the
truth is these are drugs that have
been used for decades and they're
pretty safe and there's no evidence
they're going to be less safe just
because you put them together."
Ironically, any studies regarding the
actual effectiveness of the pill would
pose a major problem.
"This is an interesting problem
because you will never be able to
conduct a trial to show that these
work," Bautista explained, "because
the population that is the target of
the polypill is a population with a
low risk of cardiovascular disease.
"You would need a really large
number of individuals and no-
body's going to pay for those trials.
The pharmaceutical industry has
shown some interest but this is not
something like the next clot buster
drug these are actually drugs that
are no longer protected without
paying royalties, so the incentive is
not there."
He believes, though that the polyp-
ill approach deserves to be seriously
considered for primary prevention,
particularly in developing countries.
"They are not going to have the
resources or time to invest in pre-
venting the epidemic of cardiovas-
cular disease that is already ongoing
in these countries using the same
approach as we use in the United
States," he said. "We should take
these drugs that we know work very
well, and make them available for a
large number of people in developing
While such a polypill is not avail-
able in the United States at this time,
there is evidence that using a polypill
in American men 55 years old and
older could result in lower cost
and higher health benefit that the
standard approach of screening and
treating for high blood pressure and
high cholesterol levels.. Page 7

Clinical trial targets stem cells to treat pediatric heart disease


Babies fighting a rare congenital
heart disease may have a nonsurgical
option in the future to correct the
The Mayo Clinic announced earlier
this year that it will start the first stem
cell clinical trials in the United States
to help children born with hypoplas-
tic left heart syndrome (HLHS), an
uncommon defect in which the left
side of the heart is "critically underde-
veloped," the Clinic said.
The left side of the heart which
includes the left ventricle, aorta,
mitral and aortic values is largely
responsible for pumping blood
through the body, according to the
United States National Library of
Medicine. If the left side of the heart
cannot maintain the blood flow to the
body, the right side of the heart will
try to compensate. However, the right
side is now over taxed with its own job
of supplying blood to the lungs and
make up for the deficient left side.
Under these conditions, and other
factors that arise from no left to right
circulation, the heart will fail.
Using stem cells from the baby's
own umbilical cord blood, the trial
will test the safety and the viability of
using stem cells into the heart of 10
infants who have HLHS. Currently,
the only option for babies born with
HLHS is three heart surgeries. The first
surgery is typically performed within
days of birth to save the child's life
- making some sort of connection
between the right and left side of the
heart to separate "clean" and "dirty"
blood is critical to live.
The second surgery is usually per-
formed when the child is between the
ages of 4 to 6 months, the Clinic said.
It is during this second surgery that
the stems cells, which were collected
at birth and separated from other cells
in the blood before being frozen for
preservation, will be injected into the
heart muscle.
"We want to see if these stem cells
will increase the volume and strength

Guidelines to prevent a first heart
attack or stroke for millions of
Americans were just released by the
American Heart Association and the
American College of Cardiology. (See
It may be good news for millions of
Americans. Cardiovascular disease is
our number one killer. But there are
For decades, we've followed the
advice of doctors to get our cholesterol
levels down. Blood tests to measure
specific levels of cholesterol were
analyzed for risks of a heart attack. Bad

Physicians also measured your risk
of a heart event based on the widely
used risk calculator derived from the
famous Framingham Heart Study. If
you came within a 10-year risk of 20
percent, that was considered a thresh-
old for station use.
Fast forward to today's standards
means cholesterol-level targets for
healthy people are no longer used to
determine who should and shouldn't
be on stations. Cholesterol levels are still
important but what has changed is
the notion that a specific level should
warrant automatic treatment with

they have a seven and a half percent
risk of developing heart problems or
stroke in the next 10 years.
So the effect of over-estimating risks
could more than double the number
of Americans who take stations. Already
some physicians report that the new
guidelines will increase the number
of healthy people for whom stations
are recommended upwards of 70-150
The guidelines also stress the impor-
tance of a healthful diet, weight loss,
exercise and blood pressure control in
addition to station use.
But many people may find that
simply walking an extra 10 minutes or
more per day will improve their heart.
Online reports from the Mayo Clinic
say, "Carrying some extra pounds -
even just a few contributes to high
cholesterol. Losing as little as 5 to 10
percent of your body weight can help
significantly reduce cholesterol levels."
Reports from the World Health
Organization say that 80 percent of
heart disease is caused by smoking,
lack of exercise, improper diet and
other lifestyle factors. So, the causes
of chronic disease are rooted in how
we live, what we eat and how much
exercise we get.
Clear evidence supports that aerobic
exercise continually improves cho-
lesterol numbers. "Lifestyle changes
can help decrease cholesterol. Those
better shifts in routine can keep you
off cholesterol-lowering medications
or improve the effect of your medica-
tions. "Because of the side-effects from
cholesterol lowering drugs, ask your
doctor about the new station guide-
lines," said Kimmer O'Neill, director of
rehabilitation for Port Charlotte Rehab
Center. "Overall, you'll know what's
best when you have all the evidence
and comply with physician advice."
It is important to consult with a
physician or other healthcare profes-
sional before beginning any fitness
routine. "Get the professional advice
you need to improve heart longevity,"
O'Neill said.

Research focuses on finding ways to tame nausea


At some point, everyone has suf-
fered from nausea. More than half of
all pregnant women, surgical patients
and cancer patients experience nau-
sea and vomiting, and up to a quarter
of all people struggle with chronic
nausea. And, of course, millions are
affected every year by the nausea that
comes with nasty stomach bugs such
as the norovirus.
Yet we still have few effective treat-
ments for nausea. Over-the-counter
medications such as Dramamine
cause sedation, and the most effective
prescription drugs, such as Zofran,
diminish nausea in fewer than half of
patients, experts say.
"Why don't we have more drugs to
help this?" asked Kenneth L. Koch, a
professor of gastroenterology at Wake
Forest School of Medicine in Winston-
Salem, N.C. "A cold washcloth is
about what we have."
"Nausea doesn't get the respect it
should," Koch said. "People say, 'If
you don't like the nausea, then get off
the merry-go-round.' But this isn't an
option for people with the chronic
and severe nausea that comes with
conditions such as hyperemesis
gravidarum, or HG, a brutal form of
nausea that affects nearly 10 percent
of pregnant women (including the
Duchess of Cambridge, formerly
Kate Middleton) and can lead to
dehydration, malnutrition and
Koch is working to understand
nausea and develop more effective
treatments by tracking the electrical
activity of the stomachs of nauseated
The stomach has an electrical
rhythm to control its churning
action, which runs at three cycles
per minute. In his tests, Koch found
that these rhythms were disrupted,
running either too fast or too slow.
He'd like to find a way to use electrical
stimulation or drugs to restore proper
rhythms to upset stomachs.
Neurogastroenterologist Braden
Kuo and neuroscientistVitaly
Napadow, both at Massachusetts
General Hospital in Boston, are
taking another approach to the
mystery of nausea by investigating


motion-induced nausea. With some
fancy engineering and a movie
projection of fast-moving vertical
lines, they built an MRI scanner that
simulates a spinning room.
As volunteers lie inside the
machine, the team tracks which areas
of their brain grow active as their
nausea ratchets up. The participants
push a button that records their rating
of the nausea's intensity and allows
them to cry "Uncle!" before puking.
Kuo and Napadow found that nausea
activates brain areas involved in pain
and fear and areas that deal with
emotions and decision-making.
Those last areas might represent a
cognitive evaluation of the sensation,
Napadow said, "as in, 'How long
can I take it?'" Also, Kuo said the
lit-up brain areas suggest that certain
non-narcotic pain medications or
antidepressants might help control
nausea. It's an important first peek
into the brain during nausea, and the
MRI setup might help test new types
of drugs.
Charles Horn, a neuroscientist at
the University of Pittsburgh Cancer
Institute, is studying the musk shrew,
which, unlike lab rats and mice, does

vomit. Horn exposes the shrews to
chemotherapy drugs or anesthesia
medications that cause severe nausea
in humans.
But since Horn cannot ask the
shrews to rate their nausea, he has
found others ways to track it. When
nauseated, the shrews avoid a saccha-
rin treat associated with the nausea
and stop rearing up on their hind
legs. It's a movement akin to curling
up on the sofa, he said. By tracking
molecular markers in the shrew's
brain, Horn has identified signals that
travel from a nauseated shrew's gut
to activate areas in its brain stem and
cause vomiting.
Sorting out which molecules control
that gut-to-brain signaling is the first
step in designing new drugs to block
them, he said. But such drugs are
probably more than a decade away.
Marlena Fejzo, a geneticist at UCLA,
is focusing on the role of genetics in
HG. She thinks that some women
may have more trouble than others in
breaking down so-called pregnancy
hormones (hCG and estrogen) and
clearing them from the bloodstream,
so that the circulating byproducts
become toxic.

Fejzo has shown that HG tracks with
a woman's genetics: Having a sister
who had HG means that a woman
has 17 times more risk of having HG
Fejzo has recruited more than
1,000 women with HG and more
than 700 friends of theirs who had
pregnancies without nausea; they will
all be invited to send her saliva DNA
samples that she will mine for genetic
differences. She has also tested five
families of women whose mothers
and sisters had HG, to look at their
whole genome for clues. While her
results are not yet published, she said
they support her idea that women
who have a harder time breaking
down hormones may be more likely
than others to experience HG.
Although vomiting serves to quickly
rid the stomach of toxins caused by
food poisoning and stomach bugs,
Fejzo, Koch and other researchers
would like to erase the debilitating
nausea and vomiting that apparently
serve no good purpose in most other
"If we could understand and treat
nausea," said Koch, "then there would
be no vomiting."

Men strike a pose in yoga classes just for them


On a perfect November Saturday
afternoon, when they could have
been pumping iron at the gym or
hanging out with friends over a
couple of pale ales, half a dozen men
slipped through the back entrance
to a Spartan yoga studio on the main
drag of Westmont, N.J.
They were there, bravely and
voluntarily, to spend two hours doing
Never mind that the ancient Indian
practice linking breath, body and
spirit was developed and taught by
men. In America, yoga is a woman's
A 2012 study by the Yoga Journal
found that 82 percent of yoga practi-
tioners were women.
Walk into most classes and if any
men can be found, they are in the
back corners, where they can fumble
through poses without attracting
much notice.
Anatomically, women are no better
equipped than men to do yoga,
said Larry H. Chou, a physiatrist
at Premier Orthopaedic & Sports
Medicine in Havertown, Pa.
"The resistance has been psycho-
social. There was this perception
that yoga was less manly," said
Chou, who has consulted with
professional sports teams and was
a faculty member at the University
of Pennsylvania's Sports Medicine
Furthermore, because men in
America tend not to stretch as much
as women do, they are not as flexible,
Chou said. "People like to do what
they are good at," he said. "And
they're not so fond of doing what
they're not good at."
Though the gender imbalance in
yoga classes has social advantages
for some men after class, many find
it demoralizing to be surrounded by
women who, in general, can twist
themselves into poses with much
greater ease.
"It's a challenge," said Alain
Benitez, who recalls his first yoga
class as a humbling experience.
"Out of a group of 30 or 40, I was the
only man, except for the teacher's
boyfriend. I learned a lot about how
much ego we carry. It was kind of
In the five years since, Benitez
has devoted himself to the practice.
After studying with several teachers,

Branson Gates of Haddonfield, N.J., practices yoga steps at Anjali Power Yoga. Men's larger muscle mass requires fine-tuning of exercises.

Benitez began leading his own
classes. Last year, he joined the small
but growing number of yoga teachers
offering classes geared exclusively to
"We have specific limitations," said
Benitez, 32, whose day job is con-
ducting allergy research at Children's
Hospital of Philadelphia. "Our
broader shoulders do not help with
balance. Our minds race a little bit
faster. We have a hard time getting
into a meditative state."
In the safety of a yogic fraternity,
Benitez said, his students feel more
He helps them get there by speak-
ing their language. When they lie
prone for cobra pose, he tells them,
"if anything needs adjusting, now is
the time. We don't want pinching."
And he notes there is something
reassuring when more than half

the men in the room cannot reach
past their knees, let alone palm the
"I see a lot of broken-down men,
who are shrugged over and have
no balance," said Robert Sidoti, 42,
cofounder of Broga on Martha's
Vineyard. Sidoti, an omni-athlete and
former actor, started his male brand
of yoga there with a friend in 2009.
The plan seems to be working.
Broga now has licensed teachers
across the country, with two dozen
more in the works.
The classes, he said, are minimal-
ist: "Let's just focus on the breath and
postures and get you through them
in a healthy, safe way." Besides the
basic poses, Sidoti said, he throws in
some power moves. "Men can relate
to a push-up, so for the guy who
wants to get a little bit of a workout,
we get the heart rate up."

For this, he said, Broga has been
criticized by purists. "But the way
yoga has been presented on the
surface didn't speak to the buddies I
was hanging out with," he said. The
soft images on yoga websites, the
lotus flowers and new-agey wording,
put them off. "I wanted to repackage
yoga," Sidoti said.
For muscular men trying yoga for
the first time, patience is especially
important, said Christopher C.
Dodson, an orthopedic surgeon
at Rothman Institute and Thomas
Jefferson University.
"Large muscle mass is great for
many things, like moving couches
and playing football. But with those
larger muscles, you do lose flexibil-
ity," he said. "The way to prevent
injury is to gradually build up. It's
similar to if you've never run before,
don't try to do a marathon."

Obesity may be a side effect of PTSD in women, study finds


Could PTSD be partly responsible
for the nation's obesity crisis?
It's an intriguing question, consider-
ing that one out of every nine women
will meet the diagnostic criteria for
post-traumatic stress disorder at some
point in their lives. People with PTSD
are known to eat and drink things
that aren't good for them and to blow
off chances to exercise. PTSD and
depression are often fellow travelers,
and depression can lead to weight
gain. PTSD is also thought to be a risk
factor for cardiometabolic diseases.
Researchers have looked for a link
between PTSD and obesity in the past,
but because they generally relied on
data sets that gathered information
about both conditions at the same
time, they could not assess whether
one led to the other. The only way to
show that PTSD helps cause obesity is
to track women over many years and
compare the weight gain of those who
experience PTSD to the weight gain of
women who don't.
That's what researchers from
Harvard, Columbia and Boston
University have done in a new study

published in JAMA Psychiatry. To pull
it off, they turned to the Nurses Health
Study II, a huge, ongoing study that
has been tracking more than 100,000
registered nurses since 1989. Some
of these women filled out a ques-
tionnaire about trauma and PTSD in
2008. The research team used data
on 50,504 women who completed
the questionnaire and also provided
multiple measures of their body mass
index over the year.
To most closely approximate their
ideal scenario, they created a subsa-
mple of 14,828 nurses who had not
experienced PTSD when they enrolled
in the study. Some of them went on
to experience traumatic events; some
of them developed a few symptoms
of PTSD but not enough to warrant
a diagnosis; and others had four or
more PTSD symptoms, enough to be
diagnosed with the disorder.
Among the nurses who had a
healthy weight when they joined the
study, those who went on to develop
symptoms of PTSD were more likely
to gain weight than women who
experienced a traumatic event but
remained free of PTSD symptoms.
Specifically, those who had one, two
or three PTSD symptoms (as assessed

by the survey) were 18 percent more
likely to become overweight or obese,
while those with four or more PTSD
symptoms were 36 percent more likely
to become overweight or obese. When
the researchers adjusted for things
such as age, race, smoking status
and history of depression, the effect
remained but was slightly smaller.
The researchers also considered
how quickly the nurses gained
weight after experiencing a traumatic
event. Sure enough, the women who
developed PTSD subsequently saw
their body mass index rise at a faster
clip than women who had only a few
PTSD symptoms. What's more, the
women with just a few symptoms
gained weight faster than women
who experienced a traumatic event
but didn't develop any signs of PTSD,
according to the report.
The fact that there was a dose-
response relationship the women
with the most PTSD symptoms gained
weight most quickly makes the
findings more convincing, the authors
When the researchers considered all
of the nurses in the sample, including
those who experienced a traumatic
event before the study began, they

found women with one to three PTSD
symptoms were 15 percent more
likely to be overweight or obese than
women who never experienced trau-
ma or, if they did, were able to escape
symptoms of PTSD. Women with four
or more PTSD symptoms were 26
percent more likely to be overweight
or obese.
"These findings are the first to
demonstrate that PTSD symptom
onset is associated with altered BMI
trajectories over time," they wrote.
The researchers also proposed a
biological mechanism that could
account for the link. PTSD causes
the sympathetic nervous system to
go into overdrive, which produces
higher levels of a chemical called
neuropeptideY. In animals, stress
boosts production of neuropeptide
Y and results in abdominal obesity.
Perhaps the neurotransmitter boosts
fat production in people as well.
Whatever the mechanism, it's
helpful for primary care doctors to
know that if their patients experience
a traumatic event and especially if
they develop PTSD symptoms they
are at greater risk of the weight gain
that leads to obesity, the research
team concluded.

Women's mercury levels drop,

suggesting safer fish choices

Mercury levels in women's blood
are dropping, and not because they're
eating less fish, a new study says.
Instead, women appear to be eating
smarter and choosing less contami-
nated varieties of seafood, according
to a study released by the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency.
The analysis showed that blood
mercury levels in women of child-
bearing age dropped by about
one-third between 2001 and 2010,
compared with 1999 and 2000.
"There was very little change in
the amount of fish consumed and
mercury levels in fish tissue did not
decline," said Betsy Southerland,
director of the Office of Science and
Technology in the EPAs water divi-
sion. "This suggests that women may
have shifted to eating types of fish
with lower mercury concentrations."
Agency scientists analyzed mea-
surements of blood mercury levels
taken as part of nationwide health
surveys by the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention. The drop
was most pronounced between 2001
and 2004, the study says. The changes
were small after that, with a slight
increase in the last few years.
Exposure to mercury in the United

States comes almost exclusively from
eating contaminated fish and shell-
fish, though most of it contains only
trace amounts. When the metal is
released into the environment -
often from coal combustion or
mining it converts into methyl-
mercury and accumulates in the food
web, building up in the tissue of large,
old, predatory fish.
Mercury can harm the brain and
nervous system, particularly of
children and fetuses, who are more
susceptible to the poison because
they are still developing.
The federal government says people
should not eat shark, swordfish,
king mackerel or tilefish because of
high levels of mercury. Instead, they
should limit their intake to about 12
ounces a week of shrimp, salmon,
pollock and catfish, which are low in
The government also suggests
opting for canned light tuna, which
has less mercury than albacore, and
checking for local advisories before
eating fish from lakes, rivers and
coastal waters.
The EPA study says further research
is needed to determine whether the
drop in mercury in women's blood
is linked to a change in their eating
patterns and whether health adviso-
ries are playing a role.

Stick with healthy carbs over their highly processed cousins


When it comes to carbs, the pen-
dulum has swung dramatically in the
past three decades, from eating them
without discretion, to avoiding them
altogether and finally, to a new
appreciation for the healthiest sources.
In the 1980s and 1990s, it was all
about low-fat diets. As health experts
cautioned people to cut back on fat,
food manufacturers responded by
making low-fat everything, including
cookies and snacks. But they typically
ramped up the refined carbohydrates
from white flour and sugars to make
up for the taste. We splurged on
way too many of these foods, which
showed in the nation's rising rates of
obesity and Type 2 diabetes.
The next diet to make it big was the
low-carb, high-protein diet, courtesy
of Dr. Atkins, which launched a nation
of dieters who avoided carbs like the
plague. This diet was difficult to follow
for the long term and not optimal for
health, and petered out around 2005.
Fast forward to the present and
studies now reveal that it's the type
of carbohydrate that may be more
important for optimal health.
A diet focusing on highly refined
carbohydrates a hallmark of the
typical American diet such as white
bread, sugary beverages, snack foods
and baked items has been linked
with health problems.
A number of epidemiological studies
have found that higher intake of such
carbohydrates is linked with a greater
risk of Type 2 diabetes and ischemic
heart disease, while diets high in mini-
mally processed carbohydrate sources
- such as whole grains, vegetables,
fruits and legumes have been linked
with a lower risk.

In a 2010 Danish study of more than
53,000 participants, published in The
American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
(AJCN), replacement of saturated fat
with high glycemic index (GI) carbohy-
drates significantly increased the risk
of heart attack, whereas replacement
with low-GI carbs showed a lowered

Which are the healthy carbs?
Carbohydrates, a major group of
macronutrients that includes starches
and sugars, have many key roles
in your body. They provide energy,
help make you feel full and satisfied,
control your blood glucose and insulin
metabolism, promote proper elimina-
tion, and foster fermentation in your
gut, which promotes normal digestion
and the growth of friendly bacteria.
Not all carbs are created equal.
We used to qualify "good" vs. "bad"
carbohydrates through terms such as
"complex" (which included starches
like potatoes and bread) and "simple"
- meaning sugars, such as sucrose.
But now we know that these descrip-
tions don't fully portray the qualities of
carbs. More useful indicators include
the amount and type of fiber, the
amount of processing, and the GI and
glycemic load (GL), reported Harvard
researcher Dr. Frank Hu, in a 2010
article in AJCN.
"Typically, the best choices are the
whole foods or minimally processed
foods. Fruits, vegetables, beans and
lentils, barley, wheat berries, quinoa
- these are examples of carbohy-
drate-rich whole foods, and they are all
very nutritious," said Jill Weisenberger,
dietitian and author.
These foods have higher amounts of
fiber, so they're more slowly digested
and absorbed into the bloodstream,

and provide other benefits, such as
lower risk of heart disease and certain
Minimally processed carbohydrate
foods also contain health-protective
phytonutrients, according to Dr.
Andrew Weil, director of the Arizona
Center for Integrative Medicine, who
spoke at the 10th Annual Nutrition
and Health Conference in Seattle in

Glycemic index
Strong evidence suggests that after
eating high-GI foods, such as heavily
refined carbohydrate foods, including
white bread, refined cold cereals and
sugary foods, blood sugar levels rise
more so than after eating low-GI foods,
such as whole grain kernels, dairy
foods, beans and most vegetables.
This spike in blood sugar may
increase your susceptibility for Type 2
diabetes, heart disease, or overweight.
This was confirmed in a consen-
sus statement of the International
Scientific Consensus Summit on
Glycemic Index, Glycemic Load, and
Glycemic Response released in June.
The statement was drafted by an
international panel of experts, includ-
ing Dr. David Jenkins, Canada research
chair in Nutrition and Metabolism
at the University of Toronto and the
originator of the GI concept.
Which are the carbs to limit?
Weil recommends decreasing your
consumption of refined, processed,
high-glycemic-load carbohydrate
foods, including sugars and refined
grains, due to their pro-inflammatory
action and lack of protective phytonu-
trients. For example, grains which have
been ground to reduce particle size
and remove the outer bran and germ,
found in bread, rolls, pizza crust, white

rice, and ready-to-eat cold cereals -
are more rapidly absorbed into the
blood stream.
Excess added sugar intake (including
table sugar, high fructose corn syrup,
cane sugar, beet sugar, honey, and
maple syrup) in processed foods,
baked goods, dairy products, desserts
and beverages is linked with higher
risk of cardiovascular disease and
metabolic conditions, according to
the American Heart Association. The
intake of sugar-sweetened beverages
shows even more potential for weight
gain and health risk.
But don't worry about the sugars
that are found naturally in foods.
"When we eat the sugar that comes
naturally in fruit, milk, yogurt and
vegetables, we are getting the whole
package of nutrients, which includes
vitamins, minerals, sometimes protein,
sometimes fiber, and health-boosting
phytochemicals," said Weisenberger.

Putting changes into practice
Weisenberger suggests that if you
make room for three servings of dairy
(or dairy substitute), and at least 2
cups of fruits, 1-1/2 cups vegetables,
and three servings of whole grains
every day, you can allow yourself a
"If you accomplish this most days,
you can enjoy the amount of highly
processed foods that allows you to stay
within your calorie needs," she added.
The Dietary Guidelines suggests that
you make at least half of your grain
servings whole grains (about three
servings daily for the average person),
which leaves room for some servings
(i.e., 1 slice bread, 1/2 cup rice or
pasta, 1 cup breakfast cereal flakes, 1
small tortilla or pancake) of refined

Obamacare a good bet for 20- and 30-somethings


Like it or not, you're going to pay
for health coverage (or your lack
of it) next year. And the mandate
will affect a fair number of young
people. Currently, about 28 percent
of Americans between the ages of
19 and 34 "go naked" on health care
insurance double the percentage of
those 35 or older.
But if some young adults were
unwilling to pay for coverage when
most of them could have found plans
costing just $100 to $200 a month,
they may be even more deterred now
that premiums are expected to rise.
For example, in California, a 25-year-
old will pay an average premium of
$250 per month for a mid-level silver
So you might think opting to pay
a penalty of $95 or 1 percent of your
annual income, whichever is greater,
in 2014 would be a better option than
getting insured. But the penalties will
rise in later years. By 2015, every adult
without coverage will fork over $325
or 2 percent of income; in 2016, the
penalty will rise to $695 or 2.5 percent
of income. And of course, without
coverage, you risk facing even greater
costs if health issues and emergencies
Despite the higher premiums, the
good news is that the policies will
likely cover more, too. Plus, many
young adults will be eligible for
subsidies to help them afford the new

plans. If your modified adjusted gross
income is less than 400 percent of the
federal poverty level which comes
to $45,960 for a single person in 2013
- you qualify to receive a subsidy to
lower the premiums on most individ-
ual insurance plans.
The discounts can be significant.
For example, according to the Henry J.
Kaiser Family Foundation, the month-
ly premium for a single 25-year-old in
Seattle whose annual income is less
than $28,725 drops from $167 to $138
after subsidies for the lowest-cost
bronze health plan. In infamously
pricey NewYork City, the cost for a
25-year-old with the same income
drops from $308 to just $111 a month
for the same plan.
If your employer offers a health
insurance plan, it's likely a better deal
than getting individual coverage.
Your boss will take on part of the
premiums, and the amount you cover
will be taken out of your paycheck
before taxes. Keep an eye on when
your employer's open enrollment
period ends. Otherwise, here are your
health care options:
*Get on your parents' plan. Luckily
for those age 25 and younger, you
can remain on your parents' plan,
which is exactly what I've done just
like about 6.6 million other young
adults who otherwise might have
gone uninsured, according to the
Commonwealth Fund, a foundation
dedicated to health care research and
You'll have to check your parents'

plan to determine whether adding you
will increase the monthly premiums.
Fortunately, in my case, the cost for
my parents' family plan is the same
whether I'm included or not (which
is why I opt to go with their cover-
age instead of the plan provided by
Kiplinger). But that's not true in every
case; it may be cheaper for you to
get your own plan. And if you live in
a different state than Mom and Dad,
look into how their plan will cover
you where you live it may not offer
in-network providers near you.
Keep in mind, too, that if you
choose to stay on the family plan,
your coverage will automatically end
on your 26th birthday. If your em-
ployer offers insurance, your birthday
will trigger a special open enrollment
period. You'll have less than three
months to find and start new coverage
- either from your employer or on
the Obamacare exchanges or else
pay the penalty.
*Buy from the exchange: Each state
has an exchange, run by either the
federal government or the state itself,
where you can buy health insurance
and apply for subsidies. Visit www. to find your state's
All individual health insurance plans
are required to cover certain essen-
tials, such as preventive care, hospital-
ization, maternity and newborn care,
emergency-room care, and prescrip-
tion drugs. And insurers cannot reject
you or charge you more because
of a preexisting medical condition.
The plans sold on the exchanges are
categorized as bronze, silver, gold and
platinum. The higher the level, the
greater the coverage and higher the

premiums will be. But not all plans are
the same; there are a variety of plans
in each level, and they also vary by
insurer and state.
How do you decide which plan fits
your need? Because all plans cover
preventive visits and procedures, the
bronze plan is probably sufficient
for most healthy young adults. An
individual who often gets sick or has a
chronic condition, such as asthma or
diabetes, might consider a silver plan,
which would cover additional medi-
cine and hospital visits. Judy Solomon,
vice-president for health policy at the
Center on Budget and Policy Priorities,
recommends checking which doctors
in your area accept which plans.
Consider a catastrophic-coverage
plan. In addition to the precious-met-
al plan levels, another option for
people younger than 30 is a cata-
strophic plan. These policies usually
have lower premiums but higher
deductibles. So, other than the three
primary care visits a year and other
preventive benefits that are covered
by these exchange-purchased plans,
all your medical expenses are your
responsibility up to a certain amount
- usually several thousand dollars.
Only after that point does catastrophic
coverage kick in. It's geared toward
young, healthy people who don't want
to spend much on health insurance
but who ought to have coverage for
emergency situations.
For example, if your appendix bursts
or you get into an accident, cata-
strophic-plan coverage will limit your
costs. Although you may still have to
pay thousands of dollars to meet your
deductible, you'll be protected from
financial ruin.

Health insurance: Can I

buy a policy after I get sick?


The news has been focused on the
troubles of people trying to use the
health care law's insurance exchanges
and on options for people whose
individual polices are being canceled.
But open enrollment continues, and
people who are shopping for individ-
ual or job-based coverage have many
questions. Here are some answers.
Q: I know there's an enrollment
period for the health law's insurance
marketplaces, but people can also
buy a policy directly from a company
or agent, outside the marketplaces.
So will people be able to buy a reg-
ular health insurance policy from a
company or agent after March? If so,
won't people wait until they're sick or
injured to buy insurance?
A: The open enrollment period -
when people can buy an individual
plan for 2014 directly through the
health insurance marketplace or
outside it from an insurer or agent -
began in October and runs until the
end of March.
The law requires that health plans
sold either through the marketplace
or outside it be comparable in many
ways, including the benefits that are
covered and consumer cost-sharing
requirements, such as the rule that
plans pay at least 60 percent of med-
ical costs. In addition, all plans sold
on the individual market, whether

through the exchange or outside it,
must offer open enrollment during
the same time period.
So there's no easy way to game the
system by waiting to buy a plan until
you get sick. If you skip open enroll-
ment, you've generally missed your
chance to buy coverage for the year
unless you have a significant change
in circumstance, such as losing your
job-based insurance. You'll also face a
penalty for not having insurance: $95
or 1 percent of your income in 2014,
whichever is more.
Q: We just received a notice from

that said if her spouse is employed
and has the option for insurance
at his or her workplace, it must be
taken. She is paying for a family plan
that covers myself and her son, who
is living at home and attending col-
lege. How can a company charge for a
family plan and then revoke coverage
for one of the insured? Is this legal or
just a way to purge family members
to cut costs to the group insurer?
A: Employers aren't required to
offer health insurance to the spouses
of employees, and if they do offer it,
they can choose to stop at any time.
But discontinuing spousal coverage
altogether isn't common, said Amy
Bergner, a managing director at PwC
Human Resource Services. Employers
are more likely to charge for health

Video games may help fend off senior moments


At age 70, Allan S. is not a gamer,
but when his time comes to play
Space Fortress for a Columbia study
on the aging brain, he eagerly takes
his seat in front of a computer mon-
itor, grabs the joystick and starts
shooting missiles at the enemy
fortress on the screen.
Despite the video game's simple
graphics it looks like Asteroids, cir-
ca 1984 -Allan must do more than
shoot indiscriminately at his targets to
rack up points.
"It's a frustrating and complex
game," said the cognitive neuroscien-
tist running the study, Yaakov Stern,
professor of clinical neuropsychology
at Columbia University College of
Physicians and Surgeons.
Getting a good score requires close
attention to multiple small details.
Allan can only destroy the fortress
during a short window of time with
two quick shots fired within 250
milliseconds of each other. If he fires
the second shot 251 milliseconds
after the first, his opportunity is lost.
At the same time, mines drift around
threatening his ship, although some
are actually "friendly." Destroying a
friendly mine costs him points, but
telling mines apart requires decod-
ing a message that flashes onto the
bottom of the screen.
Allan is in his fifth session with
the game and he doesn't have total
control over his ship.
"I know what I have to do, but get-
ting that information down into my

arm to move the spaceship is slow," he
said. Still, it's fun, and Allan travels to
Columbia's Taub Institute for Research
on Alzheimer's Disease and the Aging
Brain three days a week to play the
game for 45 minutes at a time.
Stern hopes that playing Space
Fortress will give people in their
60s and 70s, like Allan, more lasting
benefits than a few hours of fun.
Stern's idea is that the game may be
able to slow down the effects of age on
memory, critical thinking, and other
cognitive functions.
That idea is already entrenched in
popular culture as the "use it or lose
it" philosophy. Magazines, newspa-
pers, and television shows advise peo-
ple to learn a new language or play
Sudoku to fend off the effects of aging
on the mind. Brain-boosting board
games, software, and puzzles can be
purchased in stores dedicated to brain
fitness, and sales are projected to
reach billions of dollars this decade,
fueled by a rapidly aging society.
But to most researchers in the field
of cognitive neuroscience, it's not
yet clear that these activities actually
"I think most scientists are con-
vinced that it's possible to change the
brain to improve cognitive functions,
but the research is not that encourag-
ing yet," said Stern.
There's no doubt that age dimin-
ishes many of the brain's cognitive
functions. Things like memory, pro-
cessing speed, and reasoning ability
peak around age 20 and then start to

A game to exercise the brain: Alzheimer's patients iiiav 1)enefit firo-ii Q\\xirkle


Qwirkle is a game, similar to dom-
inoes, in which players match up
shapes and colors.
It has proven beneficial to
Alzheimer's patients. It aids at a
cognitive level, adds mobility, and
provides a social activity. That's what
got John and Holly Schmid interested.
The Schmids own Best Alzheimer's
Products, which offers games and
activities for people with Alzheimer's
or dementia.
Their website (http://best- offers help
and information for those with loved

ones touched by these afflictions.
That number includes the Schmids.
A longtime friend was slowly overtak-
en by Alzheimer's over several years.
She was without a family, and the
Schmids became her caretakers,
eventually helping her into a care
facility. Along their journey they
noticed the shortage of mentally
stimulating games for such patients.
In 2007, John had been writing at
length about Alzheimer's; soon the
couple began offering products on
their site.
"Qwirkle was one of first things we
got for (our friend) to keep her busy
and one of the first things we had
when we opened the store," John said.

that all family members may not be
best served by staying on the same
plan. Don't limit yourself to evaluat-
ing the medical coverage and provid-
er networks.
"Sometimes employee-only cover-

A sense of appreciation

Common courtesy is to say "please"
and "thank you" when you are offered
something. It is just a habit of speech
with not much thought or emotion.
As they were growing, up we taught
our kids good manners and to say
"please" and "thank you." We insisted
on their sending thank you cards for
gifts received. But I am not as sure
that we taught them to appreciate
their good fortune. How do you teach
appreciation? They took for granted
having loving parents, a safe place to
live, and all the good things the world
has to offer.
I remember at dinner one year,
when we were living in Tokyo, I asked
my three young daughters where they
would like to go on summer vacation.
They had the choice of going home to
the U.S., or skipping the annual trip
home to visit Europe, Australia, or
wherever else their hearts desired. In a
uniformly sad and whining reply they
said, "Do we have to go?" like travel
abroad was some sort of burden.
That was the shocking moment
when I realized how spoiled my chil-
dren had become. Visiting the capitals
of Europe or the Great Barrier Reef is
a hardship? Please. That summer we

did not take a vacation because I
didn't want to further "burden" my
children. Instead, I used that year's
generous vacation money to spoil
myself with the purchase of an Arabian
show horse. Thankfully, since that day
my children have grown up and have
begun to appreciate their life and their
unusually good fortune.
Not too long ago I received a blast
e-mail from executive director John
Davidson, pleading for the donation of
a suitcase to AMI Kids Crossroads. He
had an 18-year-old graduating (they
call it "crossing over" to independent
living) and the poor kid had nothing
but a garbage bag with which to start
his journey into adult life. I responded
by offering to donate a suitcase to
every kid that crosses over. I plan to
keep that promise.
This summer Yoko and I decided to
get even more involved with AMI Kids
Crossroads by donating time, after
learning how great the need is and
how few resources there are to deal
with the problem of children placed
into foster care. We decided to become
Children end up in foster care for
reasons that are no fault of their own.

Tom Cappiello
AMI Kids Crossroads takes the most
difficult placements. These are boys
between the ages of 13 and 18 who
have been in foster care for nearly
their entire lives. They are not easily
placed into adoption because of an
assortment of problems, including
their advanced age, behavioral issues,
substance abuse, a history of running
away, multiple failed placements, or
juvenile delinquency.
Yoko and I have been visiting the
AMI Kids Crossroads campus once
a week for the last few months. We
are trying to build relationships with

For more information about
AMI Kids Crossroads,

some of the boys who live there, and
we are looking for ways to help. Last
week, Yoko brought origami paper
to campus and showed some of the
boys how to fold a simple paper crane.
These attention-starved boys were so
appreciative of having some attention;
it was heart-warming to watch.
Yoko has taken a shining to one
smart 16-year-old who has lived in
the foster care system his entire life.
We invited him to our home this
past weekend to spend time getting
to know him. What impressed me
most was the young man's sense of
appreciation. He was polite, but even
better he was appreciative of what we
offered: clean clothing, a comfortable
place to sleep, good food, and a variety
of entertainment. He was thankful for
everything we offered and you could
tell he truly appreciated it.
This young man was adopted at the
age of 3 and lived for years starved by

.J A nationwide stroke prevention
study shows that medication and life-
style changes remain safer and more
effective at preventing strokes than
stenting in patients with narrowed
brain arteries.
The study analyzed long-term
health outcomes from a multi-
center clinical trial, which included
University of Florida Health research-
ers Dr. Brian Hoh, the James and
Newton Eblen associate professor of
neurosurgery, radiology and neu-
roscience, and Dr. Michael Waters,
assistant professor of neurology
I and neuroscience and UF Health
Stroke Program director. The findings
appeared in the Oct. 26 issue of The
Enrollment in the trial was halted
two years ago when it became appar-
0r -0 ent that stenting was associated with a
higher risk of early strokes and death
at early time points. The final results
f after long-term follow-up support
medical management as
preferable in this disease.
The multicenter study was conduct-
ed in 50 sites across the United States.
Nearly 800,000 people suffer a
stroke each year, and about 10 per-
cent of those strokes result from a
narrowed artery inside the brain. For
decades, doctors have treated these
patients with blood-thinning medica-
tions that help prevent clot formation
FIL P and with drugs to lower cholesterol
FILE PHOTO and blood pressure. Recent advances
in surgical techniques and tools have
allowed neurosurgeons to adapt
procedures such as stenting, which is
used to open clogged arteries in the
heart, for use in stroke patients.

new treatments, the Stenting and

for Preventing Recurrent Stroke in
Intracranial Stenosis, or SAMMPRIS,
trial, which was funded by the
National Institutes of Health, enrolled
451 patients at high risk of repeated
stroke. All participants had a brain ar-
tery with at least a 70 percent narrow-
ing that had already caused a stroke or
a transient ischemic event, commonly
known as a mini-stroke or TIA.
Participants were separated into two
groups. Patients in one group had a
metal stent surgically inserted into the
narrowed brain artery, while patients
in the other group did not. Both
groups received the same medications
and were contacted regularly by
lifestyle modification coaches, who
encouraged participants to exercise
more, stop smoking, improve their
diet and lose weight. They also had
routine follow-up.
For the final analysis, the scientists
followed the patients for at least two
years after treatment. Some patients
were followed for as long as four years.
In August 2012, the early results of
SAMMPRIS led the Food and Drug
Administration to change the criteria
for using the "wingspan" stent tested
in the trial.
The new guidelines restrict use of
this stent to patients with at least a 70
percent blockage who already have
had two previous strokes while on
aggressive medical management.
"We randomized patients with
symptoms from narrowed brain arter-
ies to receive either a stent or aggres-
sive medical treatment, and over one
year, aggressive medical management
appears to be safer," Hoh said.
"This does not shut the door on
stenting, however, as we know that
there are patients who fail medical
treatment and need opening of
their brain arteries to prevent stroke
because their brains are not receiving
enough oxygen and blood flow."

Eliminating your personal holiday stressors


Everyone has their own little per-
sonal holiday stressors. Nowadays,
as soon as the calendar turns to
Oct. 1, the Christmas countdown
begins. Seeing those "Only 85 Days
Until Christmas" announcements
can make even cast-iron stomachs
spontaneously convulse with those
little internal hiccups. While those
published and broadcast count-
downs can't be controlled, there are
measures that can be taken to reduce
holiday stressors.
However, you first must know what
your true stressors are, and deal with
them firmly. Start a list of your own.
Here are a few of mine:
*Refrigerator space. Rearranging
the fridge every time a stick of butter
or cup of milk is needed takes an
engineering degree this time of the
year. And that's before the leftover
containers need parking space. There
are only so many shelves and draw-
ers to hold all of those burped plastic
containers and foil covered casse-
roles. And don't even try to cram in
all of those beverages.
Helpful hint: Be thankful you
have this problem. Sometimes we
forget. (And just keep some coolers

*Christmas cards. Oh, how that
stressor used to get me. It was fun
to pick them out, include personal
hand-written messages, affix the
pretty Christmas stamp, and send
them far and wide. Year after year I
told myself to start on them earlier,
in about August.
"Take your time, Teri," I'd preach to
myself. "Enjoy the cards during your
down time, the long, lazy summer. Or

maybe early fall." But did I listen to
me? Of course not.
Then, in the mix with all of the
other holiday activities, I searched
for relaxing moments to work on
my cards. And those moments were
never enough. With the electronic
era, I think more people have strayed
away from sending holiday cards, but
I gave it up before it was trendy.
Helpful hint: Just send cards to
the people who send you a card. If
you put it in the mail the same day
their card is received, they'll wonder
if that's what you did, but they won't
know for sure.
Helpful hint retraction: Never
mind the above. That's not really
representative of the true holiday
*Wrapping gifts. Wrapping pres-
ents can be very enjoyable. Laying
out all of the beautiful papers,
ribbons and custom made name
tags while enjoying a nice holiday
refreshment is quite festive. As each
masterpiece is created, they are then
delicately placed under the tree.
Fast forward to the year I finally
said, "forget this" and stuffed every-
thing into gift bags. Done.
The entire family revolted with that
one, so I'm back to wrapping. I just
try to keep up as gifts are purchased.

There might be slapped on bows, but
they're wrapped.
Helpful hint: If you cut extra-long
rolls of wrapping paper in half, the\
fit many boxes perfectly without
leaving that wasteful end piece. (The
piece that usually ends up a nevei -
to-be used scrap or tucked and
folded into the wrapping as if it is
supposed to be lumpy.)
*Getting the perfect gift. All I can
tell you is that in 1985, my child \a-.
scared to death of Teddy Ruxpin.
Items commercialized as "the" gift
of the season sometimes aren't. Sawve
yourself from that particular retail I

and enjoy yourself. Life is too shoi t
to do otherwise.

Tis the season to be wary of scam artists


The holiday season brings time with
the family, large amounts of food, gifts
galore and scams.
"Holidays, like disasters, are a
common time for scams to increase,"
said Ed Mierzwinski, director of the
consumer program at the U.S. Public
Interest Research Group.
With the convenience of online
shopping, consumers need to con-
sider the possibility of identity theft.
Other holiday rip-offs might not seem
as obvious disguising themselves
through advertisements, fake charities
or gift cards but they are a threat
According to an October National
Retail Federation survey, one-quarter
of consumers plan on completing 26
percent to 50 percent of their holiday
shopping online this year. Mierzwinski
recommends the use of credit cards
- not debit cards when shopping

online; money comes directly out of a
customer's account when purchasing
with a debit card.
If someone is a victim of identity
theft using a credit card, they still will
have to undergo an investigation to
validate the fraud, but they won't lose
the money in their account.
"You have more rights by law with
a credit card than a debit card,"
Mierzwinski said.
Other important tips:
*Make sure your shopping sites
are legit. National Consumers League
executive director Sally Greenberg said
consumers should check the legitima-
cy of online shopping websites -
especially when buying from un-
known stores, and read the return
policies. The goal before making a
purchase, according to Greenberg,
is to "get a sense that they're the real
*Be wary of cut-rate pricing. Online
advertisements for merchandise
priced well below the product's typical

cost are a trick used by scammers
looking to get personal identification
from consumers or to install malware
- software that performs unwanted
tasks and gathers private information
- on their computers.
As a precaution, Breyault said,
people should have their antivirus
software up to date when shopping
online; he also recommended using
stores' smartphone applications when
checking prices, because they are
more secure than searching the Web.
*Watch out for charity scams.
Phone calls and websites can solicit
information from donors by posing
as charities, and then steal from those
who fall for the trap.
Mierzwinski said potential donors
should use websites to check the
legitimacy of charities, including
GuideStar USA Inc. (www.guidestar.
org) and CharityWatch (www.char- Fraudulent charities
can disguise themselves by using
names and Web addresses similar to

real ones. In terms of phone calls and
emails from charities, Breyault rec-
ommended hanging up and deleting
the emails. "If you're thinking about
donating to a charity," Breyault said.
"go to that website on your own."
Mierzwinski said that other chai rie-.
might be legitimate but still have
unusually high costs, often because
they do not directly send their fund-.
to the cause and instead distribute
them among employees.
*Be careful with gift cards. Gift
cards' popularity stands at an all-tiune
high, according to a National Retail
Federation survey, which found 81
percent of consumers plan on pur-
chasing them this holiday season.
Consumers need to act cautious\
because scammers can copy or use
portable scanners to get the code :4 a
gift card and place it back on the rack
When consumers purchase the caid-
and activate them, the thieves can
discover the values and take advan -
tage online or in stores.

Local group offers support, education for those with ostomies


Southwest Florida offers three
support groups for area residents who
have ostomies. Below is information
about the procedures and local
There are three main types of an
ostomy. First, there is a colostomy,
when the large intestines are brought
to the surface of the abdomen to form
a stoma. The stoma is what an appli-
ance/pouch is put over with adhesive
to catch the waste that is produced by
the body. Second is an ileostomy that
is at the end of the small intestine. It
is brought to the surface the same as
the colostomy, and the same type of
appliances are used. The third type is a
urostomy. This is when the bladder is
brought to the surface of the abdomen

HIV awareness fund-raiser,
play scheduled for Dec. 1
On Dec. 1, Suncoast AIDS Theatre
Productions will present "Jeffrey"
in Port Charlotte at the Langdon
The production takes place at
Langdon Playhouse, 1182 Market

p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Free
HIV testing will be offered 6-10 p.m.
The play, by Paul Rudnick, tells the

to release the urine into an appliance.
Remember that an infant, children,
teenagers, adults and the elderly can
all have an ostomy.
A stoma can be many sizes and
shapes. They can be a big as 2 inches
and as small as 1/2 inch. They can be
round or oblong. It all depends on
what the surgeon feels is necessary
during the operation.
In most cases, cancer is the reason
for an ostomy. However, other causes
are ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease
and many types of infection.
In a lot of cases, the patient goes in
for an operation and is surprised that
now he or she has an ostomy. That can
be very scary to the new ostomate. A
nurse will show you (and your care-
giver) how to take care of it; when the
shift changes the new nurse might
show you some other way to care for

you the rest of the story.
Artistic director Garry Breul and Eric

Fortunately, for ostomates with
insurance, some or all of it is paid for.
Others, without insurance, will have
a difficult time with the costs because
they can be as high as $300 each
month, depending on what appliances
are needed and how often they require
changing. The average the appliances
have to be changed is every 3-4 days.
Some last longer, and some have to be
changed more often.
For the uninsured, the local support

Today's medications often contain
a combination of 3-4 medications in

procedure, and a heart-lung bypass
machine is not required.
The treatment works by clipping
together a portion of the leaflets of
the mitral valve in order to reduce the
backflow of blood, which allows the
heart to pump blood more efficiently,
thereby relieving symptoms and
improving patient quality of life.
Patients undergoing MitraClip
treatment typically experience short
recovery times and short hospital
stays, an average of three days.

Yaryura emphasized that it doesn't
correct the problem completely.
"If, for example, zero means no leak-
age and four is severe, you would go
from a four to a one or a two," he said.
"We're not eliminating it completely
but diminishing it substantially. We
do know- from over 8,000 of these

patients feel better. What we don't
know is if it will prolong life. It's only
a quality of life changer for people
who are very sick and are optimized

improve their quality of life and
we're very hopeful that it will prolong

many patients, Yaryura added.

"Once you get severe mitral regur-

the survival rate is not very good

Bialik said.

the patient's permission, she notes,
and restrictions on the video.
"With any new technology, you
don't bring it into a patient-care
setting immediately upon seeing it for
the first time," she said. "I needed to
have a real comfort level with them."
In the OR, where she wore the de-
vice only briefly, she found technical
challenges. To turn the device on, she
had to look up, taking her eyes away
from the patient, and pay attention to
the video recorder.
"I think interacting with the device
when you're concentrating on the
patient is almost impossible," Evans
The technology is in its infancy, she
said, and will doubtless improve.
Demonstrating it recently at a
national meeting of the American
College of Surgeons, she was instantly
surrounded by colleagues.
"You need to know what this is and
what this does, and decide how you
want to incorporate it into your prac-
tice," she told them. "Because wheth-
er you like it or not, it's coming."
Dr. Rafael Grossmann said he's the
first surgeon in the world to have

chat. He believes technical problems
will get worked out.
Grossmann, a surgeon at Eastern
Maine Medical Center, has become
a sort of Glass evangelist in his blog
and speaking venues.
"I always bring Glass up to the
forefront in those talks, because I
think it's what's happening now,"
Grossmann said. "This is something
meaningful not just another toy
that comes our way and goes away in
a few years."
Recently, he participated in what
he believes is the first Glass-to-
Glass consultation. A surgeon in
Amsterdam streamed her operation
via Glass to Grossmann in a different
city; he asked her questions and
projected the live stream to a big
screen where 400 students and others
He predicts Glass will "revolutionize
the way we teach medicine."
But this revolution, he added, is
really evolution. A small, wearable,
unobtrusive computer is an inevita-
ble step in the journey from room-
sized computer to desktop, to laptop
and most recently, to smartphone.
So far, the medical professional
societies haven't issued guidelines
for using the device, which is still
experimental. Companies are work-
ing on add-ons and apps to make
Glass useful in the medical world,
although Google spokeswoman Anna
Richardson White said her company
is "trying to build Glass so that it sat-
isfies the needs of general consumers,
rather than focusing in on specific
industry use cases."
And rumor has it that competitors
are on the march.
But there's work to be done, partic-
ularly on privacy issues.
"I'm sure if I were sitting in the
same room as the IT people here,
they would have a heart attack about
this device," Evans said recently at
Other questions: Will Glass become
so easy to use that surgeons routinely
wear it during surgeries? Will videos
become accepted parts of a patient's
medical record?
"We would incorporate it into our
practices if it were secure, safe and
added value," Evans said. But for now,
she and Grossmann agree, Glass is all
about the possibilities.
"Potential," said Grossman, "is the
key word."

Ultimate shopping guide



Old-school toys

dominate holiday lists


two requests Don Mahoney,
otherwise known as Santa
Claus, keeps getting day after
day: Barbies and Legos.
"There are a whole bunch
of toys out there, but the kids
really know what they want,"
said Mahoney, who has been
stationed outside his "North
Pole workshop" at St. Charles
Towne Center in Waldorf, Md.
since early November. "The
Barbie dolls and the Legos,
those are really big."
In a year when one toy has
yet to emerge as the must-have
of the season, analysts say
retailers and consumers are
reverting to the basics: cars,
dolls, Legos and bicycles. But
that may not be enough to
save what many expect to be a
slow holiday shopping season.
"There are no hot toys this
year; there really aren't'," said
Gerrick Johnson, a toy industry
analyst at BMO Capital Markets.
"We don't have a Tickle Me
Elmo or a Zhu Zhu Pet or a
Cabbage Patch Kid nothing
that is approaching phenome-
non status."
Instead, decades-old classics
are inching their way back

to the top of Christmas lists.
According to a National Retail
Federation survey released
Thursday, 25.8 percent of
shoppers said Barbies would be
their primary purchase for girls.
For boys, Legos were the most
popular item, with 10.6 percent
of customers on board.
There are hints of burgeon-
ing demand for high-tech
items. For the first time, iPads
were among the most popular
gifts for both girls and boys,
outpacing the new Big Hugs
Elmo, American Girl dolls and
Furby. But overall, Hot Wheels
and Disney Princesses have
kept their stranglehold at the
top of the rankings.
"The nostalgia surrounding
some of the oldest toys will
never go away," said Kathy
Grannis, a spokeswoman for
the National Retail Federation.
"A lot of kids are still growing
up on traditional toys."
That may not be good news
for retailers. Sales of toys have
remained flat in recent years
during the choppy economic
recovery. Last year, toys sales
totaled $22 billion in the
United States, down from
$22.2 billion in 2008, according
to data from research firm

Shopsmart's ultimate guide to holiday


overall, holiday shopping can be
stressful from choosing the
right gifts, sticking to a budget,
avoiding the last-minute scramble and
more. The December 2013 issue of
ShopSmart magazine, from Consumer
Reports, is stuffed with holiday ad-
vice that can help shoppers select the
perfect gift, wrap it like a pro, save on
holiday purchases and more.
"Our goal is to bring more joy to the
holiday gift-buying season by helping
shoppers make smart choices," said
Lisa Lee Freeman, editor-in-chief of
ShopSmart. "We wanted this issue to be
a one-stop shop to help them fine-tune
their holiday shopping and entertaining
game plans."
Here are some tips on how to shop
smarter not harder:
Get last-minute gift help. Last-
minute shoppers have two things
going for them deep discounts from
retailers hoping to clear out their inven-
tory and new ways to make gifting easy
and even automatic. Feeling stumped
about what to buy for the people left
on your list? ShopSmart suggests trying
a gift-finder tool for inspiration, such as
the one at (
Avoid shipping fees. More stores are



giving shoppers the option of ordering
items online and picking their purchase
up at a local store eliminating ship-
ping charges. Best Buy, Finish Line and
Target are among the retailers offering
this perk.
Cash in coins for gift cards. Coinstar
kiosks won't charge a fee when users
opt for a gift card instead of cash at
a bunch of participating retailers.
New merchants include Applebee's,
GameStop, Home Depot and Southwest

A gift card seems like the perfect op-
tion as a last-minute gift or for someone
who's hard to shop for, but some still
have huge drawbacks; here are some
things to keep in mind:
Purchase fees. Retailer gift cards
usually do not charge purchase fees,
but shoppers may be charged around
$3 to $5 for bank-issued cards that fea-
ture logos such as MasterCard or Visa.

Evaporating value. An inactivity fee
can't be charged unless a card hasn't
been used for 12 months. But the fees
can kick in as long as they don't exceed
one per month.
Lost card headaches. Gift card
holders may be out of luck if they
lose them. Some issuers will replace a
lost card for a fee. Target and WalMart
will offer a free replacement with the
original receipt.

ShopSmart shares some bud-
get-friendly tricks for keeping wrapping
costs down from paper artist Mollie
Green, author of Sweet Paper Crafts
(Chronicle Books, 2013), using a few
basic craft supplies:
Load up on paper. Plain metallic
and solid-colored papers are sold for a
reasonable price at craft stores about
20 cents to $1 a foot, which can save at
least $1 a foot over high-end papers.
Skip wallet-busting ribbons and
bows. Shoppers can buy a giant roll of
red and white baker's twine for as little
as $5. Or check out the sale bins at craft
stores for yarn, rickrack, ball fringe and
other inexpensive ribbon alternatives.
*Save on gift toppers. Look for

inexpensive knickknacks to tie on gifts
at the dollar store, such as small, shiny
ornaments, toy Santas and candy canes.

ShopSmart's eight-step game plan
will help holiday shoppers stick to their
budgets and avoid some of the worst
holiday shopping headaches. Sample
steps include:
Make a list. List each person, gift
and budget. Promise to avoid impulse
purchases. Consider apps to create
shopping lists, such as Smart Shopping
List a la Carte (Apple), so the list is
always handy.
Scope out sales before shopping.
Subscribe to email newsletters from
favorite retailers. Use one email address
to corral all alerts. does
an excellent job of putting sale notices
all in one spot.
Don't bank on Black Friday. Though
discounts may be tempting and
shoppers can certainly get some great
deals, Black Friday isn't necessarily a
sweet spot for sales. ShopSmart price
studies have found that when it comes
to top-rated items such as cameras
and TVs, prices actually dipped to their
lowest point after Cyber Monday.

Question: I keep hearing about the dangers of trans fats. Appar-
ently they are in lots of foods, but how bad are they really?
Answer: Dietary fats can be a blessing or a curse, depending on
which you choose. There are different types of fats including satu-
rated, unsaturated and trans fats, considered the worst type.
Saturated fats come from animal sources such as meat, milk and
butter, and also from coconut and palm oils. These fats pack together
tightly and squeeze into small spaces, such as arteries, causing
Unsaturated fats come from vegetable, nut, seed and fish sources,
and include safflower, olive, peanut and corn oils. They do not pack
as easily, making them less likely to clog arteries than saturated fat.
Some of the best fats for exercisers are found in nuts, seeds, whole
grains, fish and flaxseed oil.
While less commonly used than they were years ago, trans fats
have recently been back in the news as the Food and Drug Admin-
istration takes a tougher stand on their use. Although trans fats can
be found naturally in many foods such as cheese, butter, chicken,
beef, pork, lamb and milk, it is artificial (also known as industrial or
synthetic) trans fats that appear to pose a much bigger health risk.

This is because they increase inflammation, raise "bad"(LDL) choles-
terol and lower "good"(HDL) cholesterol more than other types of fat.
Artificial trans fat is created when hydrogen is added to liquid
vegetable oil (hydrogenation), to make it more solid. The hydroge-
nated oil is much less likely to spoil, and so is used in many processed
foods as a means to extend shelf life. Commercially produced cookies,
crackers, cakes and cake mixes, coffee creamers, powered hot
chocolate, fried foods and many other processed products may likely
contain artificial trans fat. Shortening and some margarines can have
a particularly high content.
Currently in the U.S, if a product contains less than 0.5 grams of
trans fat per serving, the label can state 0 grams trans fat. For this
reason, its best to check the ingredient list, and look for the words
"partially hydrogenated"vegetable oil.
The American Heart Association recommends limiting total trans
fat intake to less than 1 percent of total daily calories. Translated,
if consuming 2,000 calories a day, 20 calories or fewer should come
from trans fats, equating to less than 2 grams daily. Keep in mind
that this amount includes naturally occurring trans fats that most
people are eating every day, leaving even less room for artificial
trans fats.
The bottom line is to stick to healthy fats whenever possible.

Research has shown that the omega-3 fats in fish oil may decrease
muscle protein breakdown. This may be through improvements in
insulin sensitivity, and insulin resistance associated with muscle
breakdown. A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed
that fish oil helps to enhance the effect of strength training in elderly
women. Omega 3 fatty acids in particular have been associated with
lowered risk of coronary artery disease, helping to reduce inflammation.
When it comes to buying fish, you'll need to be a savvy consumer.
Fatty fish is typically high in beneficial omega-3s but the amount
varies by species and where the fish comes from. While a great source
of omega-3s and other nutrients, some types offish may be high in
pollutants, such as mercury and other heavy metals. For this reason,
if unsure, one to two servings per week are generally the recom-
mended amount to balance benefits vs. potential drawbacks.
If fish is not a good option, other sources high in omega-3 fatty
acids include flax seed oil and walnuts. Individuals who have disor-
ders involving bleeding, who bruise very easily, or who are taking
blood thinners should consult with a medical practitioner before
taking supplemental omega-3 fatty acids.

NPD Group. That trend
is expected to continue
this year as analysts
predict another lackluster
holiday shopping season.
"In the 12 years I've
been covering toys, we've
always had something
selling for a premium
on eBay,"Johnson said,
referring to the online
auction site. "This is the
first time we're not seeing

Just 44.3 percent of
shoppers said they plan
to buy toys this holiday
season, down from
45.1 percent last year,
according to National
Retail Federation data.
"The problem is that
what really gets people
spending on toys is not
necessarily the same old,
same old;'Johnson said.
"It's innovation, compel-
ling new toys and we
don't have a whole lot of
that right now."
Even so, retailers hope
to capitalize on holiday
purchases by offering

exclusive items. Target
has 350 store-specific
toys this year, up from
last year's 300. Kmart
is selling an exclusive
auburn-haired holiday
Barbie, and Toys R Us is
pinning its hopes on an
updated version of its
kid-friendly tablet, Tabeo
e2. The retailer is also
marketing the Ugglys,
an Australian line of
electronic pets known for
their bad manners.
"Kids love anything
that's foul and funny,"
said Lisa Harnisch,
general merchandising

manager for Toys R Us,
adding that the company
has exclusive rights to
sell the products in the
United States.
Toys R Us, which relies
on holiday sales for a
significant portion of its
annual revenue, spends
months culling its yearly
lineup. Preparations for
the next holiday season
begin the week after
Christmas, when a team
of buyers boards a plane
to Hong Kong.
"That's where we really
start to look at what's
out there,";' Harnisch said.

"We place our big bets
starting in January."
But in these uncertain
economic times, analysts
say, the bets haven't been
big enough. Many of this
year's top contenders -
the Furby Boom, LeapPad
Ultra, Big Hugs Elmo -

The Moto X, meanwhile, is our
current favorite Android-based
smartphone. Its killer feature,
unique for smartphones: It can be
customized-to-order with different
colors, accents and even a home

or most full-featured Android
phone, but it's one of the most
attractive. It's assembled in Fort

about the X.

at $99 with wireless contract.

Phone 8 devices run a distant third
in popularity behind Apple and
Android devices, but that doesn't
mean they're not good products.

sensor to take stunning photos

lovely. Those who work and play in

iOS devices, but the price is the

Force measures steps, distance, stair
climbing and sleep patterns and
has a vibrating alarm. But the Force

Let's cook up a batch of antiques

y cooking expertise involves a
Crock Pot and a microwave. I'm
both envious and confused by
people who know how to use all the gad-
gets that help to make fancy food and to
create fancy garnishes.
Going back to the early 1900s there
were many, probably close to a thousand
different useful tools for the kitchen. If
you needed to carve, mash, whip, puree,
squeeze or grind you had to have a wide
array of these tools.
Just in egg beaters alone you can find at
least a hundred variations based on over
1,000 patents. Early ones are often made
of iron or an iron alloy and can easily rust,
while later ones are stainless or aluminum.
Most are made to use perpendicular to the
bowl, but there are some where the handle
is on an angle which may make it easier
to see what you're beating. A few are built
into glass jars that are graduated to show
the volume. The same kind of variety goes
for potato mashers, and some of these are
spring loaded for some unknown reason.
Mashers are either made from metal bent
back and forth or circles with many holes.
One of my favorite useful pieces is a tall
glass jar made by Wesson with a mixing
device inside to let you make your own

mayonnaise. Other glass items include juice
reamers, knives, blenders, measuring cups,
cruets, salt sets and much more. Early Pyrex
glass pieces are very versatile and safe to
use, but more modern ones can explode
into a thousand pieces if used improperly.
And I know because I've been there.
There are a multitude of garlic presses,
lemon squeezers, orange juicers, veggie
mashers, ricers and dicers. Rosettes were
used to dip into batter, then deep fry and
create various shapes. The most collectible
of these is shaped like a mushroom and
produces absolutely beautiful mushroom
pastries. These were mostly of German
origin and you can expect to pay well over
a hundred dollars for one.
At the upper end of the common tools
are those with Bakelite handles. Small
knives all the way up to carving knives
are both decorative and useful. Anything
that had a handle had a version with a
Bakelite handle. These include cheese
slicers, mashers, paring tools, sharpeners,
corers and many more hand-held small
Slicing must have been seen as a
chore because there were egg slicers,
tomato slicers and other kinds of slicers
that cut whole item at once. Grating was

made easier with metal graters, the most
collectible of these being made in brass.
Add to this strainers, spatulas, pronged
picker-uppers, tenderizers, funnels,
rolling pins and cookware and you have
gotten close to the thousand mark.
Most of these items are still useful, add
color and intrigue visitors and you can
pick the common stuff up at yard sales

-- In the

days prior to Thanksgiving, I thought maybe it
would be a great time for me to do some reflect-
ing. As I grow older, I think of the Thanksgivings of my
past. The times when I was carefree and responsibility
I think of playing with my relatives outside since
I have been in Florida for 40 years now while my
mother, older sister and other adults would prepare
the feast. I just took that time for granted. Well, as a
youngster, I think most of us do. As some years went
on, I got married and had three children, Dustin, Tim
and Alicia, and we invited relatives and friends over to
our home for the holiday.
The carefree days were gone. They were replaced
with cleaning the house, trying to get all the food
prepared so everything would come out at the same
time. We'd try to make everything so perfect, and that
seemed to put so much stress on the day.
Now, as Thanksgiving looms closer, I no longer
worry about such nonsense. I think more about what

to take this time to tell you all what I am thankful foi
I am thankful for my life and health. I am truly a
blessed man.
I am thankful to live in the greatest nation on earth.
I read our newspaper each day and love the letters
to the editor. I see that many people side one way
or another about our current status, but believe me
when I say, it is still the best country to live in. If you
don't agree, maybe you should try somewhere else
and you will see the freedoms that you have here.
I am thankful to live in Port Charlotte. I have been
here for 40 years now and have seen our little town
expand. Some for the good and some not so. It is still
a great place to live. It's our little slice of paradise.
I am thankful for my brothers and sisters. They are
wonderful, caring people and I am proud of each of
them and their accomplishments.
I am thankful for a woman named Carolyn. You
see, a few years ago my brother Bill's first wife passed
away at the age of 46 and he was heartbroken. I never
thought I would see him smile and enjoy life again.
Well, then he met Carolyn and earlier this year they
were married and he has joy in his life again. I know it
is because of her.
I am thankful for my business that soon will be
celebrating 28 years here in Charlotte County.
I am extremely thankful that after my divorce I was
lucky to find new love. My girlfriend, Sandy makes
every day worthwhile.
I am thankful to have had the privilege of raising my
children and watching as they grow into ( hopefully)
responsible adults.
Last, but not least, I am thankful for my friends, loy-
al customers, my co-workers at Pizza Hut, my friends
at the Sun, people of Charlotte County, police officers,
firefighters, hospital workers and all the other folks
who keep us safe. Remember them while we enjoy
our Thanksgiving dinner as they are still at work.
God Bless and I hope you had a stress-free feast.
Thank you for letting me get those thoughts out.

The first major release this week is a new release by
Boston called Life, Love & Hope.
Boston is a rock band from wow, what a sur-
prise Boston, Mass. Their self-titled release in 1976
ranks as the best-selling debut album in U.S. history.
Everyone from that time had this album. You remem-
ber, "More than a Feeling," "Rock and Roll Band," and of
course "Foreplay/Long Time."
The group was created by Tom Scholz, who started
writing songs while he was attending MIT. In 1969,
he met guitarist Barry Goudreau and drummer Jim
Masdea while he joined a rock band named Freehold.
In 1970 they added vocalist Brad Delp and changed
their name to Mother's Milk. They kept writing songs
and sending out demo tapes, but got nowhere. The
group disbanded.
Eventually, a record label contacted Scholz and
wanted to sign them if they would fire the drummer.
Masdea was out and in comes Sib Hashian. They also
needed a bassist, so Fran Sheehan was hired. Epic
Records signed Boston to a deal that was to provide
them with 10 records in six years. If you know about
Boston, you know that never happened.
Life, Love& Hope is their sixth studio release and
their first CD in 11 years. I guess to quote the band,
"It's been such a long time."
Many lineup changes have taken place within the
band over the years, but Scholz remains the constant.
Even after the death of singer Brad Delp in 2007, this
release has four tracks sung by him. They had been
working on the CD at the time of his death. This CD
has 13 new songs with five different vocalists. Maybe
Tom Scholz and the rest of Boston can regain that
Next we have a new release by Britney Spears called
Britney Jean.
Britney Jean Spears was born in McComb, Miss on
Dec. 2, 1981. She was raised in Kentwood, La., and
took to performing at a very young age. By the age
of 8, she had already auditioned for the revival of the
Mickey Mouse Club. She didn't make it the first time.
She then went on Star Search and started gaining
attention. By 11 she was hired to be a regular on the
MMC. By the time she was 17 she had completed her
debut album. She had made it to the big time.
Her albums went on to break international sales
records, but as with many childhood stars, her world
came crashing down. Her personal troubles have
been well-publicized. In 2007, she took a hiatus from
the music industry to get herself together. When she
returned, she was still turning out the hits. VH-1 has
her ranked at No. 11 on their "100 Greatest Women in
Music" list.
BritneyJean is her eighth studio release and consid-
ered to be her most personal. Good luck, Britney.
Other major releases this week are from The Muse,
Jake Owen, and The Sound of Music featuring Carrie
Underwood. Independent releases are from Black
Flag, Johnny Winter (Bootleg) and Black Knights.
Keep rockin', folks!

Consumer group warns of dangerous toys


cartoon pencil case and
toy cellphone displayed
at a news conference
Tuesday might look like
charming holiday gifts,
but a consumer safety
watchdog group warned
that these and other
playthings could pose
risks to children.
With Christmas less
than a month away,
the U.S. Public Interest
Research Group identified
20 toys it says could pose
choking, chemical or
noise hazards.
"These are not the-
oretical risks,"' said Dr.
Elizabeth Powell, attend-
ing physician for pediatric
emergency medicine at
Lurie Children's Hospital
in Chicago, who appeared
with PIRG officials at the
news conference. "They
are actual risks."
PIRG has been issuing
its report annually for
28 years. Dev Gowda of
Illinois PIRG said that
despite the organization's
findings, none of the toys
identified as dangerous,
which were purchased
at stores including Dollar
Tree and Toys R Us, has
been recalled by the com-
panies that make them.

That's because they are
safe, said Joan Lawrence,
vice president of safety
standards and regulatory
affairs for the Toy Industry
Association, who criticized
PIRG's report and said
consumers should feel
confident in the toys on
store shelves.
"What they're not
telling you is that in
order for it to be on that
shelf, it already had to
be tested and certified',"
Lawrence said. "What
consumers need to know
is that when they go into
a store, all toys sold in the
U.S. already have had to
demonstrate compliance
with (federal) toy safety
The PIRG report lists
five of Hasbro's Littlest
Pet Shop toy animals,
marketed to children
ages 4 and up, as possi-
ble choking hazards.
Fisher-Price's Loving
Family Outdoor Barbecue
set, which is marked
suitable for kids starting
at age 3, also presented
a choking risk, the group
said. A Captain America
soft shield and Teenage
Mutant Ninja Turtles pen-
cil case, both bought at
Toys "R" Us, made the list
for potentially dangerous
chemical levels.

PIRG warned against
LeapFrog's Chat & Count
Smart Phone and Lil'
Phone Pal for emitting
noise at such high
decibel levels that Gowda
said they could put
children's hearing at risk.
Rep. Jan Schakowsky,
D-Ill., and Illinois Attorney
General Lisa Madigan
spoke at Tuesday's news
conference and urged
parents to make sure
their holiday gifts are
age suitable and have
not been subject to any
"At whatever place you
shop, there are potential
dangers that you need to
educate yourself about',"
Madigan said.
Gowda said PIRG
workers visited toy stores,
malls and dollar stores
this year looking for
potentially dangerous
toys. The group tested
its purchases for toxicity,
noise levels and choking
risk and relayed its
findings to the industry's
federal regulator, the
Consumer Product Safety
PIRG's report outlined
a number of recommen-
dations to lawmakers
and the CPSC urging
stricter controls of the
toy market.

Some words of wisdom and homemade applesauce

One dozen apples (12 cups) of your choice (some like sweeter apples
than others)
1 cup apple juice
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Core, peel and slice apples and place them in a large sauce pan. Add
the apple juice, cover and cook over a low heat until apples are tender,
and most of the liquid is absorbed. This should take about 10-20 minutes
depending on the apples that you choose.
Using a mixer or blender, break up the apples until smooth. Mix in
cinnamon and stir until mixed well with the apples. Remove from heat and
let cool to desired temperature. You can also chill it, depending on how
you wish to serve your Homemade Fresh Applesauce. Enjoy! Serves 12.
Note: Cinnamon is a great spice by itself; I don't recommend adding
sugar because of the natural sugars in the apples. Let your taste buds
guide and direct you, if the apples taste great raw, use less cinnamon. If
they are tart, you may need to use more, so play with your dish and don't
for get to taste before you add the spice. If you don't need the whole
2 teaspoons, don't feel like you have to use it. Also, if you can find
cinnamon sticks and grind it yourself, try it.
It is your dish, have fun with it, and happy Thanksgiving from all of us
here at the Firehouse Foodie.

As I sit dowuii to vwiite this
week s colIiMn, I ileflec
back on the past and I am
I remember being a wet-be-
hind-the-ears know-it-all who
had just enough knowledge to
get himself in trouble. Now as a
seasoned firefighter or "old salt" I
have learned.
A while back a captain whom
I looked up to told me a parable
that he lived by, and demonstrat-
ed on a daily basis. You may have
heard it, but please bear with
"A group is discussing a prob-
lem, and everyone in the room
is putting in their two cents,
and arguing their point. But the
gentleman in the corner sits
quietly, intent on the activities of
the room. Everyone in the room

thought thi s
1113 11. t UII)ICI( ,
and worth-
less. They
did not pay him any mind until
a young outspoken man asked
him, 'Why are you even here?
You have added nothing to this
debate and you lend nothing to
the resolve.'
"He responded 'Sir, I would
rather sit in this corner and be
thought an idiot, than open my
mouth and remove all doubt as
you have done.'"
It's a life lesson for the fire-
house or the kitchen. Listen,
observe and learn. That is how
the wise become wise and the
wiser become wiser.
I would like to add one thing
to the Cap's words of wisdom.
Never miss a moment to pass on


what you have learned to those
willing to listen.
This week, with Thanksgiving
around the corner, I would like to
share a wonderful desert that is
not only tasty but healthy.
And that's bringing the fire-
house home.

Fitness Success: Surviving the Holidays

Halloween marked
that start of the official
American weight gaining
season. Americans tend to
gain somewhere between
one and 10 pounds (if you
are older and overweight
to begin with, you're more
likely to be near the top
end of the scale). The bad
part is that this holiday
weight gain is not muscle,
and most Americans
never lose it. I can tell you
from personal and profes-
sional experience that is
so much easier to keep it
off than it is to take it off,
so this your game plan for
winning the Holiday Hold
'Em game:
1. Keep your home as
a safe zone: Everywhere
you go parties, work,
etc. will be crawling
with temptations. It's
so hard and willpower
depleting to resist all of
that, you will not have the
willpower left over to resist
temptations in your home
after a long, hard day at
work (or with relatives you
don't care for). People will
send you cakes, and send
cookies home with you.
Do whatever you need to
do to keep your home safe
- re-gift it, throw it away,
or say "no."
2. Get out the calendar:

Get out your calendar
and take a look at when
the feasts and parties are
that you want to indulge
yourself at. Save your
treats for those occasions,
and eat right the rest of
the time. If you have a
plan for indulgence, it's
so much easier to keep
everything straight and
resist everything else.
3. Stay healthy: Getting
sick sucks and it derails
people from their good
habits. It's even worse to
lose a few days or a week
to being sick because
there are so many de-
mands on your time that
it makes getting back on
track super hard. I wrote
an article on surviving flu
season with more detail,
but here are the most
important points take
vitamin-D every day, get
at least six hours of sleep
per night, eat less sugar
and other refined carbs
because they suppress
your immune system, and
try to smile and laugh a
few times a day. Stress isn't
great for your immune
system and laughter
releases it.
4. Keep track: We all
have a pair of pants (or
other item of clothing)
that lets us know if

we are packing on the
pounds of fat or not.
Many people like to hide
the truth-telling jeans in
the closet come holiday
season. Do the opposite.
If you can, wear them
once a week. It's great
feedback. These jeans
represent the bottom
line you want them
to fit the same on New
Year's Day as they did
5. Pregame for parties:
No, I'm not talking about
getting tipsy before a
party, especially if you're
driving. I'm talking about
having a protein based
snack-- turkey, hard
boiled eggs, etc. before
a feast or a party so your
appetite isn't ridiculous.
Yes, you are planning on
indulging yourself, but
that doesn't mean that
you need to jam as much
food down your pie hole
as possible.
Remember, for most
people, most of the time,
holiday fitness success is
not gaining any fat over
the holidays. It's so much
easier to keep it off than
it is to have to work hard
later to take it off. Hold on
to whatever level of fitness
and body composition you
have this holiday season.

Romantic Film Tugs at

the Heart
FYI Televsion, Inc.
The new Hallmark Hall of Fame
presentation, "Christmas in Con-
way,' debuting Sunday at 9 p.m.
on ABC, is beautifully romantic.
What could have been a schmaltzy
piece of melodrama is a wonder-
ful movie about the power of love
and how it can heal. It helps that
the stellar cast, including Mary-
Louise Parker, Andy Garcia,
Mandy Moore and Riley Smith,
brought an earnestness we don't
normally see in a television movie.
There is also artful direction and
writing done by John Kent Harri-
son. Hallmark gave him the script
and asked him to work his magic.
"The script came to me as a kind
of an earnest, emotional and inti-
mate story," says Harrison. "It had
the elements of a pretty interesting
comedy. I made a film a number
of years ago called 'What the Deaf
Man Heard' It was very successful.
It combined an emotional intensity
with a pretty fairly broad comedy
and it seemed to work It got a big
audience, so they suggested that I
take a pass on the script and rewrite
it for that kind of tone. So, I pushed
the intimacy and the emotion as
far as I could and I pushed the
comedy up to [the level of] 'Satur-
day Night Live' So, it's a combina-
tion, which is sort of my voice, and
that's why I was hired. They know
that I like to make films that are
intense, emotional and very mov-
ing, but I also have a silly side that
likes slapstick comedy and broad
comedy and that kind of thing."
There is a deep and abiding
love shown through Parker and
Garcia's characters. Suzy (Parker)
is ill. After months in the hospital,
her husband, Duncan (Garcia), has
brought her home. Homecare nurse
Natalie (Moore) is there to help.
Duncan believes he can take care of
his wife and is resentful of Natalies
interference. Meanwhile, Natalie is
in a relationship with a business-
man who puts work before her.

She strikes up an uneasy friendship
with landscaper Tommy (Smith).
Tommy is helping Duncan build a
Ferris wheel in the backyard. Dun-
can met Suzy on one, and wants
to do it as a loving gesture for her.
"I like the parallel love stories,
but I also like the crossover," says
Harrison. "I like that Riley is learn-
ing how to be a man; hes becoming
who hes meant to be. Hes stepping
up into the world. He's doing some-
thing that is challenging and doing
it because he wants to help some-
body and becoming stronger. And
that makes him more attractive, of
course, to a woman. And Mandy,
her character is learning from Susie
what romance is and what a good
relationship really is and what really
matters. So, they're both learning
from the older couple. That really
appealed to me. To create those mo-
ments where Riley is really seeing
something that's happening
or Mandy is seeing some- 4
thing that's happening SB
and that influences

together for a long time;' Harrison
says of Parker and Garcia's charac-
ters. "I think part of that there are
two things: one is that Mary-Louise
has an extraordinary ability to com-
municate intimacy. It's the minutia
of her performance, those little
gestures, little eyes, little looks, little
glances, you know the way she turns
her head slightly, very small things.
And Andy is tremendously physical
as an actor, as a person, as a man.
Hes physical, so hes holding and
touching and carrying and support-
ing and being physical. In my mind,
a very romantic relationship is also
a physical relationship. It's not just
talking about something. It's physi-
cal, it's putting your arm around,
it's helping opening a door, various
things like that. It's a completely
physical relationship, and Andy
really stepped up to doing that be-
cause that's how he is as a man."
The filming goes quickly on
these movies, but Harrison allowed
the characters to go off-book and ex-
periment with the script he'd rewrit-
ten. "I rewrote the script, but I also
directed; you know, a cast like that
I'm not going to let that go by with-
out testing every word;'
Harrison says.
asked me, I

think on the
first day, 'Do

Mary-Louise Parker stars
in the heartwarming new
Hallmark Hall of Fame
presentation, "Christmas in
Conway," debuting Sunday at
9 p.m. on ABC.

you mind if we go off-text?' I said,
'No, I don't mind if you go off-text.
I'll keep the scene straight. I know
where we're going with the scene,
but let's experiment with it, let's play
with it and see what happens.' And
so we did, and there a lot of stuff
improvised. A lot of the crazier and
zanier stuff, the whole thing about
the property line don't touch
that tree that kind of thing that
Andy does was improvised. And
the conversation, 'I'm sitting in the
backseat of the truck,' when they're
in the truck, I'm encouraging them
to think of a happy, happy memory
and they just started improvising on
the happy memory and they started
playing off of each other, then it be-
comes quite natural and you don't
believe it's written because it's not."

Q: I was so happy to see
E.G. Daily competing on
"The Voice." Of course, I
was bummed when she
was eliminated. Can you
tell me what she'll do
next? -- Tara B., via email

A: I, too, was excited
to see E.G.'s great
performances on "The
Voice" a few weeks back,
as I'm sure were a lot of
fans of "Pee-Wee's Big
Adventure," "Rugrats"
and "The Powerpuff
Girls." E.G. was thrilled to
get the chance to show
off her singing chops, as
she told me recently.
"It was so much fun. All
of these people were
wondering who the
heck E.G. Daily is. The
same woman who does
the theme song to 'Two

and a Half Men'? The
same woman who was
Dottie in 'Pee-Wee's Big
Adventure'? The same
woman who sang on
'Saturday Night Live'
in the '80s? The same
woman who guest-
starred on 'Friends'
as Phoebe's next
songwriting partner?
It was like everything
came together for me on
that show the day I did
my blind audition and
sang 'Breathe.' That was
the day for me when, as
a 51-year-old woman,
everything just popped
together. It was magic."
E.G. is excited for what
the future will bring for
her reawakened singing
career: "I'd like to see
myself doing things like
singing something at the
music awards with Keith
Urban, because he's got
an edge to him -- a little
country rock. As far as
music, I like adult country.
Like Faith Hill, she does
adult women music. It's

age-appropriate. It's
womanly -- that's the kind
of music I'd like to do. My
voice has a little bit of an
edge to it; it's a little bit
rock. Bonnie Raitt does
stuff like that: bluesy and
To keep up on E.G.'s
career, head over to and check
out what she has in the

t? Have they canceled
the new "Ironside" with
Blair Underwood? I
thought it was a fresh
and exciting new show. --
Beverly T., Richmond, Va.

A: NBC has indeed
canceled the "Ironside"
remake after four
episodes due to low
ratings. Beginning Jan. 8,
the "Chicago Fire" spin-
off, "Chicago P.D.," will
take over the Wednesday
10 p.m. timeslot. Until
then, NBC will air
"Dateline," repeats and

It is nice to be read. Several readers were good enough to let me know that the Christmas boat parade mentioned here last week is on Sunday, Dec. 15, not on Monday the 16th. Today caps the big Christmas shopping spree that puts many a retailer in the black for the year and challenges our household storage capacity. Most of us have lived in the same house or city for less than eight years. Moving requires some healthy decisions. If you still have the seven hibachis received as wedding presents or a china set from which all the saucers, but only two of the cups, survive, moving suggests leaving some things behind. For those of us who grew up in the Great Depression, it is hard to give up on stuff. The American Indians of the Great Plains picked up all their belongings that counted and moved with the seasons. If you were carrying all your goods on your back or dragging them along the trail, you kept only what was really needed. After three dozen Christmases in the same abode, it is time to at least to pretend to move. In the attic crawl space are enough accumulated Christmas ornaments to decorate three trees. Davids Little League elders mitt is still there, along with the tent and sleeping bag Jeff backpacked on Boy Scout camping trips. Do I really need to keep in the garage my tax returns from the 1980s? There is the Craftsman drill. Years ago Sears would have repaired it. Next to it is the still-operational replacement. It, in turn, has been replaced by a cordless, battery-operated, variable-speed that turns out to be quite useful for a small repair job every year or two. Is that shirt new? daughter Debbie asks. No, I have had it for 40 years, but they dont make them like this anymore. When I bring home a pair of pants from the dry cleaners with a crisp new crease, it is hard to squeeze them into my closet. Not that I havent tried to make space. There is a whole box of event T-shirts. Two commemorate swimming the Peace River in 2001 and 2010. I could start simplifying my life with the pants on the lower rung of the closet. There are those with a 32-inch waist, those with waist sizes of 34, 36 and 38. Maybe I could compromise and keep those at 38 and hope to need them. There is the thermal underwear, very comfortable in the freezing weather when we lived in North Carolina during the 1970s. If I throw the thermal out, it will be the very next week I may make a trip to Vermont to see my cousin. We visited at her daughters wedding in 1980. There are three printers in the garage that dont work. They all look like the one I bought a decade ago for $1,200. It is hard to throw them out even though their replacement cost less than $200. Sometimes decisions are made for you. It is not necessary to move in order to trade in my car with its 192,000 miles. The air conditioner has conked out and will cost as much as the car is worth to repair. As soon as the tires wear out or summer weather comes on, I am going to trade for a later model. When I do, I could just stuff the trunk with khaki pants and dress shirts that require ironing or that have frayed just too much to wear to the ofce.

From January through June of this year, the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce received 23 reports of forcible rapes, according to the semiannual Uniform Crime Report released in mid-November. Thats up from 15 for the same time period last year. If that number doubles, it could be an annual high. However authorities and victim service specialists explain the spike is not something to worry about. In fact, it may be a good sign. I believe there are more victims coming forward, rather than an increase in the crime, said Jim Kenville, bureau of law enforcement commander with the CCSO. And a lot of that has to do with education from places like CARE. Center for Abuse and Rape Emergencies of Charlotte County or, CARE personnel also dont believe there has been an increase in rapes, citing more victims are speaking out. Linda Lusk, CAREs chief advancement ofcer, says a victim-centered approach has been taken by CARE, the CCSO, the Punta Gorda Police Department, the State Attorneys Ofce, local hospitals and the Charlotte County Health Department, to help victims become more Reported rapes riseBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITEROfficials: Numbers show more victims coming forwardNUMBERS | 11 Small businesses stake holiday claims SUN PHOTO BY GARY ROBERTSBike mechanic Paul Pierce tunes up Saturday morning in preparation for Small Business Saturday at The Bicycle Center in Port Charlotte.PORT CHARLOTTE James Hawn, 83, use to ride his bicycle all around Port Charlotte, usually lasting two or three hours per trip, getting exercise and peace of mind. But since his wifes back problems flared up, he needs to be at home more, ready to drive her to doctors appointments, or just help around the house. She was a real dancer. She used to be on the dance floor and never come off, Hawn said of his wife. She just doesnt have the mobility she used to. So Hawn is out at The Bicycle Center on Small Business Saturday, looking for a bicycle trainer, which lifts up the back wheel of his bike, ensuring that when he rides, he never leaves home. Fortunately, he found trainers on sale for $160. But just as important as the price was with whom he does business. I shop locally and I try to buy American, Hawn said. The Bicycle Center, at 3795 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte, is one of those local merchants. Now celebrating its 20th anniversary with owners Kim and Gerard Campanella, the bike shop is immersed in the local biking community, sponsoring numerous charity rides, including the annual Breast Cancer Ride, and playing host recently to the kickoff party for the 2014 Southwest Florida Tour de Cure for the American Diabetes Association, which last year raised more than $250,000.By GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERCLAIMS | 11ROTONDA WEST Ron Thurman was never able to meet Ian Heidemann, but the rst time he encountered the 22-year-old Texans mother, she grasped Thurmans right hand and rubbed it. It was like bringing her son back to life. Thurman, a snowbird living in Rotonda West, is almost two years removed from a rare hand transplant. It was Ian Heidemann, killed in a car accident, who provided the hand and organs that aided six other recipients. Thurman was one of only 52 people in the world to have the procedure done as of 2011. It was an operation he never imagined he would have, and one that he is thankful for each day as he is able to shake hands, play golf and do just about any activity after more than eight years living with a stump at the end of his right arm. It was devastating to me when it happened, he said Friday, as he relaxed on the lanai of his rental home. There was lots of depression and pain for a good while. Thurman is a farmer. He and his brother have 1,650 acres near Marion, Ind., where they grow soybeans, popcorn and eld corn. He was working on a combine in November 2003 when he caught his arm and watched as the machine ripped his hand off. It cut if off immediately, he said. I had had some rst-aid training and put a tourniquet on it and tried to stay level-headed.

Ordinarily a good thing, right? They mean freedom, wide-open spaces, the comforting sound of truck commercials with patriotic music. But with tech products, too much choice can be paralyzing. This is especially true if youre trying to buy an electronics gift for a busy networker who needs a new smartphone, a video gamer jumping on the next generation of consoles or anyone else with gadgets on their wish list. I cant tell you exactly what digital goodies everyone youre shopping for will want this year, but I can give you my best guess on some likely ones. Here are some of the more popular, sought-after tech products this year. I pitted two popular items against each other in several categories, then added a third, slightly o-the-radar alternative. Its good to have choices! Within reason.VIDEO GAME SYSTEMS: XBOX ONE VS. PLAYSTATION 4Major video game console launches are becoming increasingly rare. This year, two debuted within a week of each other, Microsofts follow-up to the Xbox 360, the Xbox One on Friday and Sonys PlayStation 3 successor, the brilliantly dubbed PlayStation 4, on Nov. 15. The Xbox One continues Microsofts focus on all-inone entertainment streaming including ESPN, Netix and its own music and video service, and touts voice and gesture commands enabled by an improved Kinect motion sensor, now bundled with the system. The PlayStation 4, meanwhile, seems geared toward more gaming features including online sharing of gameplay video and a beefed-up PlayStation Network. Its $100 cheaper than the Xbox One, but some of the cooler f ea tures of its new DualShock 4 controller require a $60 add-on camera. The biggest challenge in buying either of these might be nding one. Stores are likely to have very limited stock of these for the rest of the year. That is, unless gamers decide to ignore the new consoles in an era of 99-cent mobile phone games and plentiful free-toplay games online that dont require a dedicated console. Price: $499 for the Xbox One, includes Kinect sensor; $399 for the PlayStation 4, camera sold separately. A good alternative: Its tough to recommend Nintendos struggling Wii U system despite some interesting new games. But the companys handhelds, the 3DS ($170), 3DS XL ($200) and non-3-D 2DS ($130), still rule the market for portable game systems.SMARTPHONES: IPHONE 5S VS. MOTO XApples agship phone, the 5S, may not have generated the same excitement and delight as past generations when it was announced in September. It keeps the same physical design as last years iPhone 5, but adds a surprisingly useful ngerprint scanner that can unlock the phone and be used AP PHOTOSEmanuel Jumatate, from Chicago, hugs his new Xbox One after he purchased it at a Best Buy on Nov. 22, in Evanston, Ill. Microsoft is billing the Xbox One, which includes an updated Kinect motion sensor, as an all-in-one entertainment system rather than just a gaming console.
