Time to do


The deadlock in Congress is discour-
aging. It is time to stop complaining and
do something about it. So I am announc-
ing my candidacy for Congress as an
independent. The
Campaign will begin
^-;( t das soon as the first
$100,000 campaign
/ i donation comes in.
iThat check will
be used to hire a
campaign manager
and a manager for
San independent
Good Government
Derek nonprofit organi-
zation. The Good
DUNN-RANKIN Government fund
CHAIRMAN will be sympathetic
to my candidacy, and
will not be bothered by any limitations of
fundraising or expenditures.
Frankly, by the second week, the cam-
paign pledges will need to start rolling in.
The first $100,000 check will pay only the
two managers, phones and two adjoining
offices for the first 90 days. Hey, good
government is not cheap.
My preference is to run for the Senate.
A single independent vote there could
be decisive in the next year or two. But
there is a problem. Bill Nelson, our state's
Democratic senator, will not be up for
re-election for five more years. Our
Republican Sen. Marco Rubio is safely in
his Senate seat for another three years.
The Senate job will have to wait unless
Sen. Nelson quits to run for governor. He
has won a lot of elections, but lost when
he ran for governor. Knocking Gov. Rick
Scott out of the box would erase a blot
on his winning record. The need to shake
up Congress is great, but the chance of a
Senate opportunity opening soon is slim.
I am anxious to help good government,
but am not willing to move to another
state to compete for an open Senate seat.
It will have to be the House of
The current congressman in my
district is Vern Buchanan. He is a fine
fellow and shows a willingness to keep
the government operating. A move of just
a few miles will put me in Tom Rooney's
Let's be practical. Rooney's pockets
are not quite as deep as Buchanan's. Our
working democracy is in gridlock peril.
It is time to get an independent in there.
My eyes are open; with 435 congressmen,
an independent won't have the power
and impact that he might have in a close-
ly divided Senate.
I am calling an organizational meeting
of supporters in my office at the North
Port Sun, tomorrow. Since no cash has
come in yet, I suggest you stop next door
at Abbe's for your doughnuts and coffee. I
will pay for my own. This is going to be a
scrupulously honest campaign.
Independents are 24 percent of
registered voters in Florida. Like zebras,
they come in all stripes and cannot be
tamed. I am proposing the zebra as our
mascot, to kick the elephant and donkey
in the backside.
While you are thinking about how
much you want to contribute to the
campaign, I am going to give some
thought to what kind of dog to acquire.
Franklin Roosevelt had a Scotty named
Fala, which he happily and humorously
defended against Republican slanders.
Richard Nixon, charged with illegal
campaign contributions, defended his
daughter's gift of a cocker spaniel named
Checkers as a gift. Lyndon Johnson was
fond of publicly grabbing his hunting
dogs by the ears. I don't know that
Hubert Humphrey had a dog. It may be
why he lost the election to Nixon.
If you want to get an early start in
helping out the campaign, here is an idea
for campaign posters:
Give politics a lift.
Vote for Derek.

PCHS alum a wanted man

Suspect sought after wife's slaying in Calif.

A graduate of Port Charlotte High
School, with a history of domestic
violence charges, is wanted in connec-
tion with the stabbing death of his wife
in California.
Authorities suspect Edly Albert
Atherley II, 29, of San Bernardino, Calif.,
of killing Ashley Atherley, 28, who was
found with her throat slashed in their
home Dec. 1.
Atherley is still on the run from
police, who warn that he is extremely

Police believed Atherley still was
in the San Bernardino area, after a
security officer saw him trying to buy
a train ticket Wednesday
night, chasing him away.
However police have
alerted authorities in
Hillsborough County, Fla.,
because of his wife's ties
to the area; and Charlotte
County, where he still may
ATHERLEY have family.
THERLE In a statement made
to WFTX-TV in Fort Myers, Charlotte
County Sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie
Bowe said she wants the community

to know the Sheriff's Office is taking all
steps to make sure everything is secure
if Atherley returns to the area.
Atherley previously was arrested
and charged with domestic battery on
at least two other occasions, the first
from a February 2005 incident in Port
Charlotte when he was just 20 years
old, according to CCSO records. The
second arrest, in November 2008, took
place in Brandon, east of Tampa Bay in
Hillsborough County.
In both cases, the misdemeanor
charges eventually were dropped,

Deputies jump aboard Segways


Charlotte County Sheriff's Deputies First Class Joe Fiorini, left, and Dan Cotton practice
their police-package Segway skills with their"emergency" lights flashing. The devices
currently are being used to patrol the Port Charlotte Town Center mall, but also will be
used at parks, beaches and other places around town.

Parkside gateway project vs.

sales manager Leo Dickert moved his
used-car lot from Peachland Avenue,
where he had been for eight years,
to a gas station on U.S. 41 that had
remained virtually empty and unused
since being destroyed by Hurricane
Charley in 2004, he looked forward to
the added visibility and business his
new location would bring.
But he knew there were challenges
The dilapidated building had a
caved-in roof, no floor, broken win-
dows and homeless people living in the
rear bathroom. After investing $20,000
of his own money, though, he was
ready to reap the benefits.
What he didn't anticipate was being
tied up in government red tape for

the last six months. Charlotte County
threatened to shut down the Car
Center of Charlotte County unless
the car lot met an Oct. 31 deadline to
become more presentable.


MURDOCK Until Thursday, Charlotte
County Sheriff's Office community policing
officers Bill Miller and Dan Cotton had never
ridden a Segway.
But the deputies had to learn quickly,
because the agency had purchased two
police-packaged Segways for patrol use.
"Believe it or not, they're actually pretty
easy to ride," Miller said atop one of the devic-
es Thursday.
And it's a good thing.
The two-wheeled, self-balancing personal
transports now will be a part of the depu-
ties' everyday patrol, beginning at the Port
Charlotte Town Center mall.
"You'll eventually see us all throughout
Charlotte County, not just at the mall," Cotton
said. "We just have extra patrol here for the
holiday season."
The Sheriff's Office bought the new
equipment for about $8,100 apiece, using
crime-prevention funding.
The customized devices have a high-visi-
bility yellow finish, so they are easily recog-
nizable. The standing platform is raised more
than a normal Segway, allowing deputies
8 inches of extra height. Although there is no
siren, the devices are equipped with blue and
red flashing lights.
"They work well," Cotton said. "It's a nice
tool for us to have."
In addition, the Segways have added
padding on the front, so if a deputy has to
jump off the device, it won't get damaged.
And riders carry a wireless device with them
that shuts the Segway down if removed from
the area, so bad guys can't ride off with the
The devices top out at about 12 mph.
All-terrain tires allow for use at places like
the beach. The Segways also will be used at
parks, neighborhoods and shopping centers.
"The Sheriff's Office is dedicated to its
community policing initiatives," Sheriff Bill

Give a toy for Toys for Tots

ots of folks are out
collecting this time
of year, but the Ma-
rine Corps League's Toys
for Tots program has a
way of inspiring people to
play Santa Claus like few
Maybe it's because they
make it so easy. There are
drop-off points all over
the area, making it nearly
effortless to help people to
donate toys.
Or maybe it's because
the drive is run by Sgt.
Maj. Richard Fratarelli, a
Marine and a man who
has put in many years
serving the community.
He makes sure the gifts
go to kids who can really
use a little kindness at
Christmas, and we know
they are young people
right here in our local

and organizations to jump
on the bandwagon, so
to speak, and to do toy
collections and toy runs.
A group of bikers held a
huge run last weekend
in conjunction with MS
Rascal's Loony Bin. The
letter carriers also planned
a collection this week, and
were hoping for hundreds
of more toys. Small groups
and big organizations

around the area plan par-
ties and ask their friends
to bring a gift to forward
to Toys for Tots.
One group that has it
right is the Peace River Car
Club. The club often has
car shows in the parking
lot of Rick Treworgy's
Muscle Car City Museum,
south of Punta Gorda
at 3811 Tamiami Trail.
Dozens of fine cars partic-
ipate, and lots of people
come out to see them.
There is music and food
available, and everyone
has a good time.
Saturday, the group has
planned another show, set
for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. As it
has done for the past sev-
eral years, the group asks
the folks who participate

in the show, as well as
those coming to look, to
bring donations for Toys
for Tots. Members plan to
collect several trunkfuls of
toys for the effort and
if you've seen some of the
trunks on these classic
cars, they can be very big.
Groups, businesses and
families all are invited
to bring their loot on
down to Muscle Car City
to check out the cars,
dance to the music of
Toms Traveling Tunes,
get a bite to eat at Rick's
Filling Station, take a few
pictures with the cars, and
drop off something for
Toys for Tots. If you have a
cool car, drive it on down
and show it off.
If you need more infor-
mation, call 941-662-0383.

When Santa's Workshop
opens, parents will first

for each child. After
that, parents can shop

The supply pantries
and the volunteering
they encourage promote
the center's vision of
a high level of parent
involvement, something
Oathout said is import-
ant for the kids.
And the involve-
ment is visible to the

children. The halls of
the center are decked
with Christmas-themed
cutouts made with
construction paper and
glitter glue made by
parent volunteers.
According to Oathout,
the children take pride
in having their parents'
contributions visible.
"Some kids will point
to the decorations and
say, 'My mom made
that,'" she said.
"Everything you see
here (in the Christmas
pantry) comes from
donations," Oathout
added. "The community
has really helped."

fully Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013, of natural causes.

Charleston, Ill., at Eastern Illinois University, before retiring to
', r,. RotondaWest, Fla., in 1999. He proudly served his country during
two tours of duty with the U.S. Army in Germany as part of the
Army of Occupation, and later in Korea with the 62nd Construction
Engineers. Al came home to work on his education, receiving a BA in Art and
Education from Indiana State University in 1954.
It was while at ISU that he met his future wife, Martha Nixon. They were
married Dec. 19, 1952, in Terre Haute, and later moved to Lansing, Mich.,
where they started their family. In Lansing, he pursued his MA in Art at
Michigan State University. Al taught at Southern Illinois University in
Carbondale, Ill., and Glenville College in Glenville, WVa., before completing
his MFA at the Maryland Institute of Art in 1968. He found his niche as a
Professor of Art, teaching at EIU in Charleston from 1963 until he retired in
1993. Al spent many happy years encouraging his students to experience art in
other parts of the world, and led many student trips to Europe. During his ca-
reer, he was an Artist-in-Residence at St. Cloud University in St. Cloud, Minn.;
an Exchange Professor at the Portsmouth Polytechnic in Portsmouth, England;
and aVisiting Artist atWRSP Zaklad Plastyki, Siedlce, Poland.
As an artist, Al had paintings and other works of art in art exhibitions all over
the country, including the Chicago Art Institute, the Pennsylvania Academy of

he was actively involved with his local VFW Post 10476 and American Legion
Post 113. He also created a website devoted to the veterans of the 62nd and
85th Engineer Construction Battalions during the Korean War, for which he
was recognized and interviewed by CNN in 1999. This work helped recon-
nect the men he had served with in Korea, and he greatly enjoyed the yearly
reunions that followed.
Al loved his children and grandchildren, and enjoyed showing them the
sights and sounds of Southwest Florida.
Martha Lucille "Nikki" Nixon Moldroski, 81, also of Port Charlotte, passed
away peacefully Monday, Sept. 2, 2013, of natural causes.
She was born March 20, 1932, in Pike County, Ind., where she grew up with
her sister, Lorice, and brother, Mike.

After caring for her own children at home for a few years, Martha started her
career as an elementary school teacher in 1968, retiring after 30 years from the
Mattoon, Ill., school district. She adored her schoolchildren and, even after
retiring, she volunteered to tutor children in her community of RotondaWest.
Martha was an avid bridge player and attended many bridge tournaments
throughout the years, and she was a member of a number of organizations,
including the RotondaVFW Ladies Auxiliary. She fought and won a tough
battle with breast cancer during her retirement years with grace and style.
Her greatest joys were her children and grandchildren, and she was always
thrilled to spend time with them.

service. Their professionalism really
sets them apart from the rest! From
the moment I walked in, I noticed
how clean and efficient their waiting
area was & the same with the garage!
I was pleasantly surprised when I saw
how neat their work is too. I'm not a
fan of a dirty mechanic getting into
my 2011 car, but the mechanics at
Auto Air Specialists were as clean as
I was!
While waiting for my service, I
learned that they are a family owned
and operated small business and they
understand that sometimes auto repair
can be stressful but they put me right

at ease! They made the problem very
clear to me and even explained it to
me more than once without
hesitation! By the time I left, I knew
exactly what was wrong, what caused
the problem, and was VERY satisfied
with their professionalism and the
price I paid to have it fixed!
At Auto Air Specialist, they really
do provide the highest quality of
service. Come and see for yourself!
They are located just off Harborview

Pirates path

to success
here were a few eyebrows
raised two years ago when
Port Charlotte High School
handed the keys to its football
program to an untested 22-year-
old, Jordan Ingman.
If anyone had doubts, those
have long been erased as Ingman
and his assistants have instilled a
winning mantra that focuses on
accountability and lessons about
life not just how to tackle and
score points.
In his second year, Ingman
guided the Pirates to their first
district championship, 10 wins
and a spot in the Regional cham-
pionship game heights no Port
Charlotte team had ever achieved.
The success can be attributed
to a team-building approach that
starts with simple things, like

Another boost

in sports tourism
S arasota County bolstered
its growing reputation as a
sports tourism magnet this
week with the announcement
that the International Modern
Pentathlon Union had chosen the
area for three world cup competi-
tions beginning next year.
The county also will host U.S.
Pentathlon Olympic Teams trials
in 2016.
It's another feather for the
county's Sport Commission, Visit
Sarasota and the Suncoast Aquatic
Nature Center Association, which
oversees the operation of the new
Nathan Benderson Park near the
Manatee County line. Former
U.S. Rep Katherine Harris, who
had long-established contracts
with pentathlon officials, was
also instrumental in landing the
The pentathlon world cups
and the Olympic trials are
not enormous events of the
size of the 2017 World Rowing
Championships, which will
be held at Benderson Park, or
the YMCA National Masters
Swimming Championships, which
will be held the next two years at
the Selby Aquatic Center at Potter
Park in Sarasota. Those events are
expected to draw thousands of
competitors, coaches and sup-
porters to the region.
But the fact that this is an
international event can only add
gloss to the region's reputation as
a world-class sports venue.
We have long believed that
investments in top-flight sports
infrastructure and sporting event
promotion will pay off for the
community by bringing in more

attention, more visitors, more
business and tax revenues. In this
case, more is better.

Looking forward
to Life Stories

The column Life Stories
written Nov. 19 was beyond
most dreams. We all have stories
to tell. I'm anxious to see if
they compare to young Shawn
Several years ago, I sang in the
choir of First Methodist Church
of Punta Gorda. I sat on the end
of a row and on special occa-
sions: Christmas, Easter, etc.
Shawn was invited along with
other young music majors to
enhance our hymns. His instru-
ment was a trumpet. I thought
of him as polite, humble and
dedicated to music.
How could I possibly imagine
his leap of faith to be shot from
a cannon and the interesting
steps he took along the way. We
wonder how it will play out. Just
think Shawn is not even old
enough to start a bucket list.
I'm looking forward to more
Life Stories. There are people
who dream dreams and the
doers who live their dreams.

Give Springs
to private owner
Your headline in the North
Port Sun, "Springs plan moves
forward," left me wondering. Do
you read your own newspaper?
There is no Springs plan.
There has been no "plan" for
Warm Mineral Springs since
"the governments" involved
themselves. And, according to
the facts you reported today (the
ones that apparently slipped
past your headline editor), there
isn't likely to be a plan forWarm
Mineral Springs anytime soon.
Here's a plan: Give it away.
The governments had no busi-
ness getting into that business
to begin with.
They should just solicit for
the best ideas for the Springs,

choose from among the best
ideas whomever has the most
wherewithal to realize their
idea, and give it to them. The
potential economic return to
the Warm Mineral Springs area
over time, from an invested op-
erator, could be many times the
governments' initial purchase
Or we could schedule another
workshop, generating a letter
asking for a workshop to discuss
the points of the workshop and
provide feedback on the points
through a letter addressing the
points in contention.

you and hope you will continue

A candidate for
a top state post
In reference to your "Our
View" colunm in Sunday's
Viewpoint, Florida needs a
lieutenant governor.
Look no more. I will gladly
take this job. If selected, I will
accept the position provided:
I receive a salary of $125,000,
keep my home in North
Port, living there year-round,
working out of my home. I may
drive my own vehicle when
called out on a job. The state
will pay me for traveling at a
rate of $4 per gallon of gas, plus
all repairs and maintenance.
I may stay in five-star hotels
when away from my home and
to travel not only in Florida, but
anywhere within the U.S. with
family members and friends
and associates, on "business" at
the state's expense.
The state must issue me a
"snoop-proof" iPhone, provide
me with full medical coverage,
and, of course, pay me for a
complete new wardrobe. Other
benefits to be determined later.
I will have the option to stay
away from all problems and
problem-solving committees.
All speeches required of me
will be written for me, with the
understanding that I may freely

state at the beginning, "The
following statements were writ-
ten for me and may not always
reflect my understanding and
I will uphold the
Constitutions of Florida and of
the U.S., as I understand them,

about my qualifications to hold
this position, don't ask, and I
wont tell lies.

President is
an opportunist
President Obama is an
opportunist who flails in the
political winds.
First, we had the Affordable
care Act, then Obamacare, now
once again the Affordable Care
Act. The name really isn't the
issue. It is that the president
doesn't stand by anything. He
looks into the camera one day
and says one thing, another
day another position.
The nuclear option was a
terrible idea until he needed
it. Now it's a great move for the
country. Bigger deficits were
terrible fiscal policy until he
gained power. Transparency was
a responsibility of government
until he was in the White House.
This president has no allegiance
to any principle or doctrine but
the George Soros-funded and
Alinsky-written radical agenda.

Dogs are owners'
four-legged children
This is in response to the
person who does not like dogs in
restaurants, stores or carts and
does not want to sit next to one.
I am sure you have noticed
how well-behaved they are.
Can't say that when sitting
next to screaming unruly kids,
making messes have yet to
see a dog behave that way.
All dogs do not shed. I for
one have a four-pound morkie
(Angel) which has hair. She is
well-behaved. Though I do not
take her inside restaurants, I do
take her outside. I take her to
stores, but before I put her in
a cart I wipe the cart down as
I do not want her to get germs
from dirty kids, bags etc.
Why do you think they have
wipes available to clean carts
after kids have left numerous
germs on seats inside and on
the handle. Suggest you might
do the same if you feel so much

offense against our four-legged
Angel and I wish you a very
merry Christmas.

Replace the logo
of the GOP
If you think our president is
not a U.S. citizen, you might
be an idiot. If you think there is
no war on women when over
1,100 bills denying women
reproductive health care, of
which 135 have been enacted,
you might be an idiot.
If you believe this new
Congress that ran on jobs and
to this date has not enacted
a single jobs bill and refused
to vote on ones offered are
keeping their promise, you
might be an idiot. If you think
the 48 attempts to defund
the ACA and the subsequent
shutdown of our government at
a $22 billion cost was wise, you
might be an idiot. If you think
the 90 voting bills introduced,
of which nine were passed and
18 pending, are to prevent fraud
and not voter suppression, you
might be an idiot.
And finally if you think this
do-nothing Congress is worth
re-electing, you are an idiot. It
is time to replace the elephant
logo with a dinosaur.

Pit bull
getting loose
This is to inform those who
live in the middle school area
that there is a white female pit
bull that has been getting loose
from the Pulaski Street area
and is very aggressive to other
dogs. She has no ears, which
indicates that she may be used
for fighting.
To date, she has attacked
twice. The latest was a pug dog
that might not recover from
the attack. There is a large dog
population in this area; most
of them are small with elderly
owners walking them. It is also
very close to the school, with
lots of kids.
The dog does not seem to be
aggressive with people at this
time. Animal control is aware of
this situation and has the dog
"on watch." Inform your neigh-
bors if you live in this area.

We are fortunate to have in

privately owned restaurants.
I had the pleasure of eating in
one of them, the "Cuban Taste

chef cooks up authentic Cuban
dishes full of delicious flavors.
The portions are plentiful and
served with whatever side you
One of the many house spe-
cialties is the ox-tail dinner. His
Cuban subs are also huge and
pressed to perfection. If you like
"Spanish coffee" or homemade
Cuban bread, this is the place.
I catered for Thanksgiving
and our invited guests enjoyed
the large pork which Armando
said he slowly cooked for five
hours. The sides that came with
it were rice, black beans, yucca
and plantains. We had enough
left over to have our friends take
some home.
I recommend a must try. Eat
in or to-go, the food is excellent
and reasonably priced.

The choices we have on Iran

n his dispropor-
tionate praise of the
six-month agreement
with Iran, Barack Obama
said: "For the first time
in nearly a decade, we
have halted the progress
of the Iranian nuclear
program." But if the
program, now several
decades old, had really
been "halted" shortly
after U.S. forces invaded
neighboring Iraq, we
would not be desperately
pursuing agreements
to stop it now, as about
10,000 centrifuges spin
to enrich uranium.
If Denmark wanted
to develop nuclear
weapons, we would
consider that nation
daft but not dangerous.
Iran's nuclear program
is alarming because
Iran's regime is opaque
in its decision-making,
frightening in its motives
(measured by its rheto-
ric) and barbaric in its
behavior. "Manes," writes
Kenneth M. Pollack of
the Brookings Institution,
"from whose name the
word manichean derives,
was a Persian who

conceived of the world as
being divided into good
and evil." But Pollack
says suicidal tendencies
are not among the irra-
tionalities of the Iranian
leadership, who are not
"insane millenarians."
In "Unthinkable: Iran,
the Bomb, and American
Strategy," Pollack argues
that Iran's nuclear
program has been, so
far, more beneficial to
the United States than
to Iran. Because of the
anxieties and sanc-
tions the program has
triggered, Iran is more
isolated, weak, impov-
erished and internally
divided than at any time
since it became a U.S.
adversary in 1979. And
one possible Pollack
thinks probable result

of Iran acquiring a
nuclear arsenal would
be Saudi Arabia doing
so. Pollack considers
this perhaps "the most
compelling reason" for
Iran to stop just short of
Writing several months
before the recent
agreement was reached,
Pollack said that, given
Iran's adamant refusal to
give up all enrichment,
it will retain at least a
"breakout capability"
- the ability to dash
to weaponization in a
matter of months, even
weeks. Hence the need to
plan serious, aggressive
In September 2012,
the Senate voted 90-1
for a nonbinding reso-
lution "ruling out any
policy that would rely
on containment as an
option in response to
the Iranian nuclear
threat." The implication
was that containment
is a tepid and passive
policy. But it was not
such during the 45 years
the United States con-
tained the Soviet Union.

And containment can
involve much more than
mere deterrence of Iran,
against which the United
States has already waged
cyber warfare.
Pollack believes that
were it not for Israel
"repeatedly sounding the
alarm," Iran "probably
would have crossed the
nuclear threshold long
ago." But if a nuclear Iran
is for Israel unthinkable
because it is uncon-
tainable, Israel's only
self-reliant recourse a
nuclear attack on Iran's
nuclear infrastructure
- is unthinkable. And,
Pollack thinks, unnec-
essary. The existence of
Israel's nuclear arsenal
is a sufficient deterrent:
The Iranian leadership is
"aggressive, anti-Amer-
ican, anti-status quo,
anti-Semitic, duplicitous,
and murderous, but it is
not irrational, and over-
all, it is not imprudent."
There will be no
constitutional impropri-
ety if Congress recoils
against the easing of
sanctions and votes to
impose even stiffer ones

on Iran. The president
has primary but not
exclusive responsibility
for foreign policy. It is
time for a debate about
the role of sanctions in
a containment policy
whose ultimate objective
is regime change. For
many decades prior to
1989, humanity was
haunted by the pos-
sibility that facets of
modernity bureau-
cracy and propaganda
technologies could
produce permanent
tyrannies impervious
to change. (See Hannah
Arendt's "The Origins
of Totalitarianism.") In
"Nineteen Eighty-Four,"
George Orwell wrote, "If
you want a picture of the
future, imagine a boot
stamping on a human
face for ever." Since
1989, however, tyrannies
seem more brittle. And
Pollack believes "the ba-
sic ingredients of regime
change exist in Iran,"
which "today is a land of
labor protests and politi-
cal demonstrations."
Pollack may be too san-
guine when he says that,

since the brutal smashing
of the Green Revolution
of June 2009, "the Islamic
Republic has been dele-
gitimized and is starting
to hollow out." His fear is
that even massive U.S. air
strikes would only delay
the danger that provoked
them, and thus might
"prove to be nothing
more than a prelude to
invasion, as they were in
Iraq and almost were in
The logic of nuclear
deterrence has not yet
failed in the 64 years
since the world acquired
its second nuclear
power. This logic does
not guarantee certainty,
but, says Pollack, "the
small residual doubt
cannot be allowed to be
determinative." His basic
point is: "Our choices
are awful, but choose we
must." Containment is
the least awful response
to Iran's coming nuclear

Michelle Obama: Mom in chief

he "feminist night-
mare" is recurring.
Unbowed by
Politico labeling her with
this epithet a couple
of weeks ago, Michelle
Obama continues to do
what her critics regard
as frightening behaviors.
Last week, she assaulted
independent women
by showing off the
White House Christmas
"Our goal is for every
room and every tree to
tell a story," she explained
to an audience of mili-
tary families in the East
Room, where her two-
tone gray dress matched
the silver ornaments on
the trees.
She spoke of Christmas
trees made from stacks
of books ("they're very
cool!") and described
the "first dog display"
featuring likenesses of
Bo and Sunny. "This year
they actually move," she
said. "We're stepping up
in the world of Bo-and-
Sunny honoring. And
these are just a few of this
year's highlights!"

From there, the first
lady of the United States
ushered children into
the State Dining Room,
where she helped them
fold paper flowers,
glue reindeer puppets,
and make ornaments
from cake icing and
candy. Under the gaze of
Abraham Lincoln from
an oil painting and
about 50 journalists from
behind a rope she
walked the real Bo and
Sunny through the room.
"Sunny girl, calm
down!" Obama said after
one of the dogs knocked
over a toddler. Obama
crouched down to hug
several of her visitors,
popped a gum drop in her
mouth, and told them:
"I've got to go to work."

But what the first lady
did with the kids is her
work and she's doing
it well.
The chattering class
is conducting one of its
periodic evaluations of
Michelle Obama, and
is, as usual, finding her
wanting. Before, she was
too outspoken; now, too
demure. A month ago,
The New York Times
reported that she has
been "derided by critics
who hoped she would
use her historic position
to move more deeply
into policy." Then came
Politico's headline calling
her a feminist nightmare.
The author, Michelle
Cottle, wrote that
Obama's "Ivy League
degrees, career success
and general aura as an
ass-kicking, do-it-all
superwoman had some
women fantasizing that
she would, if not find a
clever way to revive the
2-for-I model pitched by
the Clintons so long ago,
at least lean in and speak
out on a variety of tough
issues. It was not to be."

I've dabbled in
FLOTUS-crit over the
last five years. In 2009, I
suggested Mrs. Obama's
elitism was showing
when she snarled
Washington traffic so
that she could buy some
certified-organic Tuscan
kale at a farmers' market.
But the feminist-night-
mare attack strikes me as
In part, that's because
modern feminism is
about women choosing
what they want. If a
hard-charging role model
is sought, she can be
found in Hillary Clinton,
Kathleen Sebelius, Nancy
Pelosi, Sonia Sotomayor,
Elena Kagan or many
But the real flaw in the
nightmare critique is that
the first lady's traditional
take on the role has noth-
ing to do with gender, or
race, or anything at all
about Michelle Obama.
It's about politics. She
simply has no practical
Recall the criticism
that first greeted Obama

on the national stage:
unsubstantiated accu-
sations about her use of
the word "whitey"; her
comment that "for the
first time in my adult life-
time, I'm really proud of
my country"; her college
thesis about "Princeton-
Educated Blacks and the
Black Community"; even
her fist-bump on the
stage with her husband.
She was quickly muzzled,
or muzzled herself, to
prevent damage to her
husband's candidacy. She
hasn't wavered since from
her self-assigned role as
mom in chief.
Were she to follow her
critics' advice now that
her husband is safely
re-elected, and install
herself as a lightning rod
atop the White House,
the resulting hullaballoo
would sap whatever focus
remains on the Obama
policy agenda. Even
Hillary Clinton's health
care debacle wouldn't
serve as an analogue; in
1994 there wasn't a large
chunk of the opposition
denying the president's

legitimacy, blaming him
for things predating his
presidency (such as the
response to Hurricane
Katrina) and angling
to impeach him over
routine policy disputes.
And so Michelle Obama
goes about her job. She
talks about the "ginger-
bread house that weighs
about 300 pounds it's
pretty big!" She explains
that the Blue Room
is "one of my favorite
rooms." She squeezes
frosting for the kids ("You
can eat that!"), rolls up
a little girl's sleeves and
uses a dish towel to clean
icing from another tot's
Some dismiss that as
conventional. But it's
practical, and smart.
Michelle Obama knows
better than to martyr
herself, and the Obama
presidency, for some-
body else's definition of

President Obama gets real

uch of the me-
dia commentary
on President
Barack Obama's big in-
equality speech was cyni-
cal. You know the drill: It's
yet another "reboot" that
will go nowhere; none
of it will have any effect
on policy, and so on. But
before we talk about the
speech's possible political
impact or lack thereof,
shouldn't we look at the
substance? Was what the
president said true? Was
it new? If the answer to
these questions is yes -
and it is then what he
said deserves a serious

And once you realize
that, you also realize that
the speech may matter a
lot more than the cynics
First, about those
truths: Obama laid out a
disturbing and, unfor-
tunately, all too accurate
-vision of an America

losing touch with its own
ideals, an erstwhile land
of opportunity becoming
a class-ridden society.
Not only do we have an
ever-growing gap be-
tween a wealthy minority
and the rest of the nation;
we also, he declared,
have declining mobility,
as it becomes harder and
harder for the poor and
even the middle class to
move up the economic
ladder. And he linked
rising inequality with
falling mobility, asserting
that Horatio Alger stories
were becoming rare
precisely because the rich
and the rest were now so

far apart.
This isn't entirely new
terrain for Obama. What
struck me about this
speech, however, was
what he had to say about
the sources of rising
inequality. Much of our
political and pundit class
remains devoted to the
notion that rising inequal-
ity, to the extent that it's
an issue at all, is all about
workers lacking the right
skills and education. But
the president now seems
to accept progressive ar-
guments that education is
at best one of a number of

Good enough for government

he phrase "good
enough for gov-
ernment work"
used to be a boast. Then
it became an insult. With
Obamacare, it is an ethic.
On Cyber Monday,
the federal government
was the only entity on
the planet touting a
commercial website with
the promise that it would
work most of the time,
provided people visiting
during peak hours were
willing to take a number
and come back later.
Although HealthCare.
gov was still plagued by
what used to be known
as "glitches," it was
working better. In fact,
it appears to be well on
the way to being fixed -
except for the part where
people pay for and actu-
ally get insurance. That
is called the backednd"
or the payment system
without which any other
business would go bust.

To be charitable, it is still
a work in progress.
The line in the admin-
istration's progress report
about the technical team
working "with private
sector velocity and
effectiveness" said it all.
No one would ever brag
about working "with
public sector velocity
and effectiveness."
Yet it is the govern-
ment that is vastly
increasing its reach via
Obamacare. Explaining
away the troubles of
his signature initiative,
President Barack Obama
pledged the other day,

"We're going to keep on
working to fix whatever
problems come up in any
startup, any launch of a
project this big that has
an impact on one-sixth
of our economy."
Startups don't ordinari-
ly affect one-sixth of the
economy. Usually, no one
hears about them unless
they prove to be success-
es, and by then they are
reliably functional. The
president is surely correct
that any vast experiment
affecting one-sixth of the
economy will inevitably
have pitfalls which
is why it is foolhardy to
undertake one.
Obama is confident his
law will work because, as
he repeatedly says, "The
product is good." The
leader of the free world is
now a glorified insurance
salesman. At times he
sounds like a poor man's
Billy Mays you may be
eligible, he enthuses, for

tax credits "that can save
you hundreds of dollars
in premium costs every
month." He says every-
thing but "Order Now!"
As a pitchman, the
president has advantages
no others can match. He
can engage in shame-
lessly false advertising
without having to worry
about the Better Business
Bureau breathing down
his neck. He passed a law
called the "Affordable
Care Act," even though
its mandates and regu-
lations inevitably make
health insurance more
Obama also doesn't
have to worry too much
about whether the
product is truly good
or not. He can fall back
on government power.
Individuals are having
their insurance policies
canceled by force of law,
whether they are satis-
fied with them or not.

Then they have to buy
policies or face a fine.
This isn't competition
in the marketplace. It's
That is the ultimate
backstop for good-
work. Government
doesn't gain or lose
market share on its
merits. It doesn't go out
of business. It rumbles
on, no matter what,
and the Obama team
is relying on sheer
inertia backed by the
president's veto pen to
trump all else.
They rolled out a di-
sastrously flawed website
on Oct. 1 because, hey, at
least it's a website. They
touted their Nov. 30 fixes
as a success because,
hey, at least there were
some fixes. They will
tout whatever sign-up
numbers they get no
matter how far short of

their goals, or even if the
law has rendered more
people newly uninsured
than it has enrolled -
because, hey, at least
they are sign-ups.
The president portrays
himself as the picture of
flexibility in considering

For Obama, it's all about Obamacare

resident Obama's
speech Tuesday
announced the
relaunch of his health
care program's website.
But he was also aiming to
relaunch his entire sec-
ond term, which has ca-
reened from high ambi-
tion to near-catastrophe
in less than 11 months.
Until his signature
health care program is
running smoothly, Obama
stands little chance of
focusing Congress on
any of the other goals
of his once-ambitious
second-term agenda,
including immigration
reform and addressing
the nation's infrastructure
Republicans are
already building their
2014 congressional
election campaign
around Obamacare, and
if they're able to win the
Senate and hold on to the
House, Obama will be a
very lame duck for his
last two years in office.
With so much at stake,
the speech wasn't all
that reassuring. The
president asserted that
the law was already


concerns, that America's
growing class inequality
largely reflects political
choices, like the failure to
raise the minimum wage
along with inflation and
And because the presi-
dent was willing to assign
much of the blame
for rising inequality to
bad policy, he was also
more forthcoming than
in the past about ways
to change the nation's
trajectory, including a
rise in the minimum
wage, restoring labor's
bargaining power, and

as/ oyle

working (a statement
unlikely to convince
most Americans), but he
acknowledged that more
problems could arise.
"We've learned not to
make wild promises," he
said. "Whatever comes
up, we're going to fix it."
In the appearance
Tuesday, Obama em-
braced a strategy that has
worked for him in the
past: a direct appeal to
the American people. But
speeches aren't going to
fix the "back end" of the website,
which is still transmitting
unreliable information
about enrollees to the in-
surance companies pro-
viding their policies. The
Department of Health
and Human Services still
refuses to disclose the
system's error rate not

strengthening, not weak-
ening, the safety net.
And there was this:
"When it comes to our
budget, we should not
be stuck in a stale debate
from two years ago or
three years ago. A relent-
lessly growing deficit of
opportunity is a bigger
threat to our future than
our rapidly shrinking
fiscal deficit." Finally!
Our political class has
spent years obsessed
with a fake problem -
worrying about debt and
deficits that never posed
any threat to the nation's
future while showing
no interest in unemploy-
ment and stagnating
wages. Obama, I'm sorry
to say, bought into that

a good sign.
Even in the best of
times, Obama's speeches
don't have the impact
they once did. Tuesday's
event was carried live
by only one major cable
channel, MSNBC; CNN
and Fox News didn't
The only way to make
Obamacare look like a
success is for the presi-
dent to make it work. But
that will take smarter,
better management of a
complex set of projects
that sprawl across both
the government and the
private sector a talent
that hasn't been abun-
dant in Obama's staff so
In the president's first
term, his White House
was staffed mostly
with policy wonks who
designed his economic
stimulus and health
care legislation, plus
campaign aides who
prepared him for his
2012 re-election. But
what he needed to
launch Obamacare was a
brilliant CEO.
The White House
was warned in 2010 (by

diversion. Now, however,
he's moving on.
Still, does any of this
matter? The conventional
pundit wisdom of the
moment is that Obama's
presidency has run
aground, even that he
has become irrelevant.
But this is silly. In fact, it's
silly in at least three ways.
First, much of the
current conventional
wisdom involves extrap-
olating from Obamacare's
shambolic start, and
assuming that things will
be like that for the next
three years. They won't. is work-
ing much better, people
are signing up in growing
numbers, and the whole
mess is already receding

Harvard professor David
Cutler among others)
that it needed a strong,
independent manager to
run the implementation
of Obamacare, but the
advice was ignored.
That lesson has finally
been learned belated-
ly. In October, as the
website debacle became
clear, Obama asked
Jeffrey Zients, his new
top economic advisor, to
take charge of the rescue
operation. Next year,
Zients is scheduled to get
his original job back, and
the White House plans to
install a new Obamacare
CEO an executive who
will hold the president's
future in his hands.
Some administration
officials say they expect
Kathleen Sebelius, who
oversaw the bungled
rollout as secretary of
Health and Human
Services, to resign by
the end of the year. She
wasn't the only person
who failed to notice the
oncoming disaster. But
in the eyes of some aides,
her presence will serve
as a continuing reminder
of the administration's

in the rear-view mirror.
Second, Obama isn't
running for re-election.
At this point, he needs
to be measured not by
his poll numbers but
by his achievements,
and his health reform,
which represents a
major strengthening
of America's social
safety net, is a huge
achievement. He'll be
considered one of our
most important presi-
dents as long as he can
defend that achievement
and fend off attempts to
tear down other parts of
the safety net, like food
stamps. And by making
a powerful, cogent case
that we need a stronger
safety net to preserve

"If this were to happen
in the private sector,"
Obama's former spokes-
man, Robert Gibbs, said
on NBC last month,
"somebody would have
probably already lost
their job."
But the real test of
how much Obama has
learned will be in the
other staff changes he
makes. His chief of staff,
Denis McDonough, has
won praise from mem-
bers of Congress and was
one of the voices calling
for closer management
of the Obamacare
rollout. He appears
likely to stay. But it would
make sense for Obama to
add more management
experience to his staff.
Will he be able to pull
it out? It's possible. There
are plenty of examples of
presidents getting into
trouble, revamping their
staffs and recovering
their momentum. Ronald
Reagan watched his
credibility collapse in the
Iran-Contra scandal of
1986, but then he hired
former Sen. Howard H.
Baker Jr. as chief of staff,

opportunity in an age of
soaring inequality, he's
setting himself up for
exactly such a defense.
Finally, ideas matter,
even if they can't be
turned into legislation
overnight. The wrong
turn we've taken in
economic policy our
obsession with debt and
"entitlements," when we
should have been focused
on jobs and opportunity
-was, of course, driven
in part by the power of
wealthy vested interests.
But it wasn't just raw
power. The fiscal scolds
also benefited from a sort
of ideological monopoly:

focused his energies on
ending the Cold War
and salvaged the end
of his second term. Bill
Clinton's crisis came in
his first term, after his
own health care legisla-
tion failed; he remade his
entire White House staff,
eased out a few Cabinet
officers and recovered to
win re-election.
Obama will need to
study the lessons of his
predecessors. Bringing
in new blood could help
show that the president
is serious about correct-
ing what went wrong.
And when domestic
politics are at a standstill,
a second-term president
can improve his stature
by plunging into foreign
affairs; Obama has plenty
of opportunities on that

Audubon Society
to count birds
The Peace River
Audubon Society will
hold its 2013 Christmas
Bird Count at approxi-
mately 7 a.m. Saturday.
The area for the bird
count encompasses a
15-mile-diameter circle,
the center point being
approximately downtown
Punta Gorda. The circle
is divided into about
12 areas the farthest
south being the Charlotte
Harbor Environmental
Center and the Cecil B.
Webb Preserve. There
are three water areas: the
southern part of Charlotte
Harbor, including the
area around Alligator
Creek; the northern part
of the harbor; and the
Peace River from the U.S.
41 bridges.
Beginning Christmas
Day 1900, ornithologist
Frank Chapman, an early
officer in the then-bud-
ding Audubon Society,
proposed a new holiday
tradition a "Christmas
Bird Census" that
would count birds in the
holidays rather than hunt
them. The data collected
by observers over the
past century allows
researchers, conservation
biologists and other
interested individuals
to study the long-term
health and status of bird
populations across North
Each area is headed
up by an individual who
determines where their
group goes in their par-
ticular area, and where
and when they meet.
Most groups start about
7 a.m., and count birds
until noon. Some groups
go out again later in the
afternoon to count birds
coming in for the eve-
ning. For more informa-
tion, or if you would like
to participate in the bird
counting, contact Tony
Licata at 941-505-9775.

according to both
Charlotte and
Hillsborough court
In the 2005 Port
Charlotte case, court
records show Atherley
went through a pretrial
diversion program,
which includes batterers'
intervention classes.
The State Attorney's
Office then dropped the
charges after Atherley
completed the program
later that year.
Court records also
show the victim not
the woman he later
would marry suc-
cessfully obtained a
restraining order against
Atherley while he was go-
ing through the diversion
Atherley also was
charged locally with a
spate of traffic viola-
tions, notably a count
of obstruction of police
with unlawful use of
blue lights in 2002.
Adjudication was with-
held in that case after he
entered a plea.
Eventually, Atherley
married Ashley, and
the couple moved from
Hillsborough County this
past spring to California,
WTSP-TV in Tampa Bay

San Bemrnardino police
believe Atherley killed his
wife sometime between
Nov. 29 and Dec 1, before
going on the run, the San
Bemrnardino Sun reported.
Dec. 1, police were called
to check on her welfare.
Family members said the
two had been estranged
for a few months.
When officers arrived
they found Ashley in the
bathroom, badly beaten
and stabbed to death,
the San Bernardino Sun
quotes police officials as
saying. The couple have
two children together,
but they reportedly were
not in the home when
the slaying took place.
A car Atherley
borrowed from a fam-
ily member was found
parked near the crime
scene, police said. During
their investigation,
detectives found blood
inside the car, according
to the San Bemrnardino
Sun article.
Police said Atherley's
family was cooperating
during the investigation.
Atherley reportedly
is wanted on a murder
charge and, if convicted,
could face 26 years to life
in prison.
Anyone with infor-
mation about Atherley's
whereabouts is asked
to call the Charlotte

River Road/US 41 project

nears completion


The U.S. 41/River Road
intersection improve-
ment project that's been
ongoing for the past year
is coming down to the
finish line, just in time for
the holidays.
Work on the
$8.7 million project
includes upgrades to
River Road, approximate-
ly 2,100 feet south and
3,600 feet north of U.S.
41, and improvements to
41, about 1,000 feet west
and 1,100 feet east of
the road. Improvements
include reconstruction
of the roadway at the in-
tersection to four lanes,
and the widening of 41 to
provide receiving lanes
from River Road.
Sarasota County
project manager Robbin
Levar said Friday that
crews from contractor
Woodruff and Sons have
spent the last couple of
weeks applying the final
layers of asphalt over the
intersection and pouring
the concrete curbs that
divide traffic. This past
week, crews placed the
final coat of "friction
course" asphalt the
drivable surface of the
road in most areas.
The work forced traffic
into one lane at the inter-
section, causing backups
on North River Road all
the way to Center Road
at times.

Last week, crews put the final layers of asphalt at the U.S. 41/River Road intersection. Construc-
tion on the $8.7 million improvement project has been ongoing since late last year. Paving was
expected to be finished Saturday, and the project is expected to be completely done next month.

"We're nearing
completion," Levar
said. "We've got a
substantial completion
walk-through coming
up to make sure that
all the items have been
constructed properly
and we will find out if
anything else needs to be
Levar said crews
planned to place a layer
of friction course asphalt
on the final lane on the
south side of the inter-
section headed toward
Englewood Saturday.
Crews scheduled the

work that day in an effort
not to disturb heavy
weekday and seasonal
traffic. Levar said the
paving would have been
done at night over the
last several weeks, but
temperatures have been
too low to lay the as-
phalt, which is the same
kind used on interstates
and on other areas of
U.S. 41. The road should
lose its shiny appearance
in the next couple of
months, Levar said.
After Saturday's work,
crews will begin to
remove signs, barrels
and equipment from the
area. Thermal plastic
painting will be used to
stripe the intersection
permanently in January
2014, marking the official
end to the project.
"Everything has gone
pretty much according to
plan during the project,"
Levar said. "We're not
behind on time at all."

In September, crews
installed the 300-foot
truss that houses the
traffic signals for the
intersection. It was
installed as a single piece
and is made of galva-
nized steel. The original
2009 agreement between
the county, city of
North Port and the West
Villages Improvement
District that stipulated
North Port would pay for
the cost of painting the
truss in its trademark
"City Center green" color,
and would also fund any
future paintings of the
light fixture. Officials say
it was not painted green
because maintenance
costs would become an
The city also is helping
with road impact fees,
while the county's penny
surtax is footing most of
the bill for the project.

"Everyone who comes

ments, saying it's about

But his problems are
not over. It was more
than a year ago when
Dickert first applied
for a permit from the
Florida Department of
Transportation to remove

a driveway abutting
U.S. 41 and replace it
with more flora, another
mandate from the
"They've really put me
through the wringer,"
he said. "Our main
goal here is to help the
poor folks of Charlotte
County buy a car they
can afford. Why would
they stop that?"
Dickert can't under-
stand why a thriving
business, with four
salesmen, is being taken
to task. There's only so
much you can do to
spruce up a used-car
lot, he reasoned. Isn't it
better than having a va-
cant, nine-year eyesore
gathering dust kicked up
from U.S. 41 traffic?
The answer comes
from the fact that the
county is about to
embark on a Harbor
Boulevard beautification

project, whose intent is
to make that intersec-
tion a grand gateway
into Parkside. But
whenever that initiative
is brought up at various
public meetings, the car
lot appearance becomes
an issue.
In the past,
Commissioner Tricia
Duffy has been critical
of its condition. She
explained that the
property is held to
the same standard as
any other business in
Charlotte County, saying
the car lot even received
an extension to meet the
landscape deadline.
"It looks better," she
said, but then added,
"There is a nice entry-
way planned."
Duffy apparently looks
forward to the day when
the car lot is replaced by
another business more
fitting of the planned


The Charlotte County Sheriff's Office put a couple of new tools into service Thursday. Community
policing officers Bill Miller and Dan Cotton will now utilize police-package Segways. They are
shown here acclimating to the devices in one planned patrol spot the Port Charlotte Town
Center mall.

Prummell stated in a
media release. "The
Segways let us move
around more quickly in
places like parking lots to
reach areas where there
might be a problem."
Shoppers at the mall
Thursday couldn't help

but stare as the brightly
colored Segways passed
them in the parking lot.
Ed Peterson, 80, of Port
Charlotte, had to take a
second look. He's all for
the devices if they help
"This is my first time
seeing these things," he
said. "They get around
great. I like them."

collecting diapers
The eight Kiwanis Clubs
fromVenice to Punta
Gorda have joined togeth-
er for a two-week mega
diaper collection, con-
tinuing through Saturday.
This event is part of the
Florida District of Kiwanis
yearlong endeavor called
the Diaper Dump. Clubs
will be working with

their members and their
spheres of influence to
reach a collection goal of
25,000 diapers, which then
will be distributed to local
agencies in Charlotte and
south Sarasota counties.
While this is a time
of year when efforts are
being focused on the
collection of toys and food,
Kiwanians are attempting
to fill a need that will
benefit families and babies
in a most practical way.
Government subsidies,
such as food stamps and
WIC, do not cover the cost
of diapers, leading some
women to sell food stamps
to acquire diapers.
Contact your local
Kiwanis Club for drop-off

locations, or call 941-

Pearl Harbor: 72 years

Survivors remember 1941 attack that plunged US into World War II

Hawaii About 50
survivors of the Japanese
attack on Pearl Harbor
paused Saturday at
the site to honor those
killed and remember the
moment that plunged the
U.S. into World War II.
Alvis Taylor, 90, was
serving as an Army medic
when the attack began.
His superiors, who
were doctors, rushed to
hospitals to care for the
wounded and left him in
charge. He went to Pearl
Harbor, about 18 miles
south of his Army post at
Schofield Barracks, with
dozens of ambulances.
"I remember every-
thing that happened that
day," Taylor said grimly.
A crowd of about 2,500
joined the survivors at
Pearl Harbor to honor
those killed and those
who fired back, rescued
the burned and went
on to serve during the
war. Roughly 2,400
sailors, Marines and
soldiers were killed at
Pearl Harbor and other
military installations on
the island of Oahu in the
Dec. 7, 1941, attack.

Feds balk at paper Health Act application

Fla. (AP) Federal health
officials, after encouraging
alternate sign-up meth-
ods amid the fumbled
rollout of their online
insurance website, began
quietly urging counselors
around the country this
week to stop using paper
applications to enroll
people in health insurance
because of concerns those
applications would not be
processed in time.

insurance brokers and a

order for coverage to start
in January.
"We received guidance
from the feds recommend-
ing that folks apply online
as opposed to paper," said
Mike Claffey, spokesman
for the Illinois Department
of Insurance.
After a conference call
earlier this week with
federal health officials,
Illinois health officials sent
a memo Thursday to their
roughly 1,600 navigators
saying there is no way to
complete marketplace en-
rollment through a paper
application. The memo,
which Claffey said was
based on guidance from
federal officials, said paper
applications should be
used only if other means
aren't available.
Federal health officials
also discussed the issue
during a conference
call Wednesday with

navigators and certified
counselors in several
"They've said do not
use paper applications
because they won't be
able to process them
anywhere near in time,"
said John Foley, attorney
and certified counselor for

Beach County who was on
the call.
That contradicts what
federal health officials told
reporters during a national
media call this week,
during which they said
there were no problems
with paper applications.
"There is still time to do
paper applications," Julie
Bataille, communications
director for the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid
Services, told reporters on
the callWednesday.
A CMS spokesman de-
clined to comment directly
on the issue Friday when

asked whether they dis-
couraged navigators from
using paper applications.
"With the recent fixes
to the website, we are
encouraging consumers to
use since
it's the quickest way to
get coverage, but paper
applications remain an
option for consumers and
navigators if they choose,"
said spokesman Aaron
In early November,
President Barack Obama
himself encouraged paper
applications as one of
several alternatives to the
federal website.
"I just want to remind
everybody that they can
still apply for coverage by
phone, by mail, in person,"
Obama said on Nov. 4
in remarks to Affordable
Care Act supporters at a
Washington hotel.
The paper application
problem comes as

insurance agents and
brokers are dealing with
a massive backlog of
applications that they
can't process because of
problems with the federal

Paper applications
seemed like a safe bet in
early October as agents
and navigators struggled
with online applications.
Once federal health
officials receive a paper
application, they check
with other federal agencies
to determine whether an
applicant is eligible for a
subsidy to help pay for
a portion of their health
coverage. But the process,
which includes verifying
incomes and immigration
status, is taking longer
than expected.
"This timing concern is
enormous," said Jessica

several recent conversa-

has expressed concerns
about paper applications
but stops short of saying
they can't be used.

Government seeks to improve safety for older drivers

- Concerned about an
oncoming wave of fragile
older drivers, the federal
government is working
to beef up its safety
programs aimed at seniors
behind the wheel.
According to the
National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration,
drivers 65 and older are
more likely to die or suffer
serious injuries, even in
low-severity crashes, than
younger drivers.
It prompted the
agency, which is part
of the Department
of Transportation, to
announce a new, five-year

comprehensive safety
plan this week. The plan
seeks to improve the data
it collects on crashes and
injuries sustained in them,
explore new research
on technology that
could help drivers avoid
collisions, and improve
the system for identifying
dangerous drivers.
The agency's adminis-
trator, David Strickland,
emphasized that the plan
was not about labeling an
age group of drivers. Older
drivers are "some of the
safest on our roads," he
At the same time,
existing data show that an

85-year-old driver is 1.77
times more likely to get a
moderate or more-severe
injury in a crash, when
compared with drivers
between 35 and 54. If the
85-year-old was a front-
seat passenger, the older
person is five times more
likely to get injured.
'Although older people
of today are more mobile
than past generations,
they are still at a disadvan-
tage compared to younger
people when it comes to
their ability to tolerate
injury," according to the
agency's recent plan.
'Aging results in increased
fragility and frailty."

Despite a decline in
overall traffic fatalities in
recent years, the fatality
rate for senior drivers
increased 3 percent in
2012, with a total of 5,560
deaths nationwide. In ad-
dition, 2012 saw 214,000
older drivers injured, a
16 percent spike from the
year before.
Of all Americans,
13.7 percent were over 65
in 2012; they represented
16.6 percent of all fatali-
ties, according to the traf-
fic safety administration.
Between 2003 and
2012, the population over
65 increased 20 percent
nationwide. In the same

period, the amount of old-
er license holders grew 21
percent, leaving 35 million
licensed older drivers.
"Everyone knows
that older people don't
see as well at night.
But how much do they
not see as well?" said
Joan Claybrook, former
president of the advocacy
group Public Citizen
and head of the National
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration during
the Carter administration.
"What should be done
to change the lighting
systems on cars that help
older drivers, or in terms
of street lighting?"

on the average number

a parent and child. And
since September, leisure

freshman class made a big
splash on the sales charts
in 2013, and now several
members can boast a raft
of Grammy nominations,
including Compton
rapper Kendrick Lamar,
hip-hop duo Macklemore
& Ryan Lewis, 17-year-old
singer-songwriter Lorde
and country songwrit-
er-turned-singer Kacey
Together the four acts
collected 22 of the nomi-
nations announced Friday

rap superstar Jay Z led the

The New Zealand-born
Lorde, whose real name is
EllaYelich-O'Connor, was
recognized in record and
song of the year catego-
ries in her first round of
Grammy attention, and

Imagine Dragons'
"Radioactive," Bruno

nominated records -

romantic hookups as
musical hooks, given the

nominees have tallied

Incandescent light

bulbs starting to

fade into history

(Houston Chronicle) -
Light bulbs are changing.
Federal rules taking
effect Jan. 1 ban the man-
ufacture of incandescent
bulbs using 40 watts of
power or more, the third
phase of energy efficiency
legislation passed in 2007.
The intent of the law
is to push consumers
toward more energy-effi-
cient lighting technology
than the incandescent
light bulb which has
helped beat back the
night for more than a
century but expends most
of its energy producing
heat rather than light.
Compact fluorescent
lamps those spiraling
tubes that some consum-
ers may associate with
harsh light and delayed
start-up cost more
than incandescents but
last longer and use
75 percent less energy.
Halogen incandescent
bulbs are more energy-ef-
ficient than older ones but
less efficient than CFLs,
which are emerging as the
most common alternative
as higher-wattage incan-
descents fade out.
And retailers say their
quality has improved
"If you bought a CFL
bulb three years ago,
you might not know how
good the technology is
now," said Mark Smith, a
Houston-based director of
operations for retail chain
Batteries Plus Bulbs.
A key to the improve-
ment was advances in the
technology of ballasts,
devices that regulate the
currents and voltage in
fluorescent bulbs. The
electronic ballasts in
newer CFLs eliminate the
flickering and slow illumi-
nation of older bulbs.
"They are cheaper,
safer, more efficient and
are instantly on," Smith

Also available consid-
ered state-of-the art light-
ing but at higher up-front
cost are light-emitting
diode lamps, known as
While costlier, LEDs
are 80 percent more
energy-efficient than
incandescents, according
to the U.S. Department
of Energy, and have far
longer life expectancies.
Incandescent bulbs
typically last 1,000 to
2,000 hours, while LEDs
can burn 25,000 hours
or more. The increase is
the result of illumination
technology that relies on
computer chips.
The technology also
makes LEDs environ-
mentally friendlier than
CFLs, which contain
small amounts of toxic
The energy efficiency
of both types can mean
significant savings for
consumers, said Doug
Lewin, executive director
of the South-central
Partnership for Energy
Efficiency as a Resource,
which promotes energy
efficiency in Texas and
About a third of
residential electricity
usage can go to light-
ing, Lewin said, so an
80 percent reduction
in that power use
could mean significant
savings over time.
In general, recent im-
provements in technology
have reduced residential
electricity demand for
lighting by 2 percent,
according to the U.S.
Energy Information
Besides the potential
for long-term savings,
the new bulbs also give
consumers a chance to
reassess the aesthetics of
lighting their homes.

France, AU send more troops to African nation

BANGUI, Central
African Republic (AP) -
France and the African
Union on Saturday
announced plans to
deploy several thousand
more troops into em-
battled Central African
Republic, as thousands
of Christians fearing
reprisal attacks sought
refuge from the Muslim
former rebels who now
control the country after
days of violence left
nearly 400 people dead
- and possibly more.
French armored
personnel carriers and
troops from an AU-
backed peacekeeping
mission roared at high
speed down Bangui's
major roads, as families
carrying palm fronds
pushed coffins in carts
on the road's shoulder.
In a sign of the mounting
tensions, others walking
briskly on the streets
carried bow-and-arrows
and machetes.
Concluding an
aptly-timed and long-
planned conference
on African security in

Paris, President Francois
Hollande said France was
raising its deployment
to 1,600 on Saturday
- 400 more than first
announced. Later, after
a meeting of regional
nations about Central
African Republic, his
office said that African
Union nations agreed
to increase their total
deployment to 6,000 -
up from about 2,500 now,
and nearly double the
projected rollout of 3,600
by year-end.

tion that allows for a more

Hagel outlines new weapons sale plan for Gulf


WIRE Page 7

MANAMA, Bahrain (AP)
- U.S. Defense Secretary
Chuck Hagel opened the
door for the U.S. to sell
missile defense and other
weapons systems to U.S.-
friendly Gulf nations, with
an eye toward boosting
their abilities to counter
Iran's ballistic missiles,
even as global powers ink a
nuclear deal with Tehran.
In a speech Saturday to
Gulf leaders, Hagel made
it clear that the emerging
global agreement that
would limit Iran's nuclear
program doesn't mean the
security threat from Iran is
Instead, he laid out steps
to beef up defense coop-
eration in the Gulf region,
while at the same time
insisting that America's mil-
itary commitment to the
Middle FEast will continue.

"I am under no illusions,
like all of you, about the
daily threats facing this
region, or the current anxi-
eties that I know exist here
in the Gulf," Hagel told a
security conference. "These
anxieties have emerged as
the United States pursues
diplomatic openings on
some of the region's most
difficult problems and
most complex issues,
including Iran's nuclear
program and the conflict in
He said the interim deal
is just a first step that has
bought time for meaningful
negotiations, adding that
"all of us are clear-eyed,
very clear-eyed about the
challenges that remain" to
reaching a nuclear solution
with Iran.
And he pointed to the
ongoing plan to destroy

But Hagel argued
that the emphasis on

"We know diplomacy
cannot operate in a
vacuum," Hagel said. "Our
success will continue to
hinge on America's military

our assurances to our allies

up the Gulf region's ability
to defense itself.
Washington has pushed
for more than 20 years,
particularly after Iraq's
invasion of Kuwait in

1990, for better defenses
among a group of Gulf
nations that includes
long-time allies Saudi
Arabia and Bahrain.
The latter hosts the U.S.
Navy's 5th Fleet. Progress
has been limited, in part
because of their reluc-
tance to collaborate.
Hagel's speech con-
tinued a theme he has
repeated over the past two
days in private meetings
with Gulf leaders and in
remarks to troops aboard
the Navy's USS Ponce
warship at the nearby U.S.
base. He is countering
apprehension in the re-
gion that the Iran nuclear
deal, coupled with U.S.
budget pressures and the
drawdown in Afghanistan,
could signal a decline in
America's commitment to
the region.

Japanese group helps clear tsunami debris in Canada

TOKYO (The Yomiuri
Shimbun) -A group of
Japanese people living
inVancouver, Canada, is
leading an effort to clean
up debris swept out to
sea by the 2011 tsunami
that is showing up on
shores about 4,660 miles
It has been more
than 1,000 days since
the Great East Japan
Earthquake and tsunami
hit the Tohoku region,
and debris is continually
washing up on the shores
of North America.
A group of about 60
volunteer university
students from Japan
plans to travel across the
Pacific next March to
help clean up islands off
the coast of Vancouver
The effort is being

spearheaded by the
Japan Love Project, a
volunteer group formed
after the disaster by
about 10 people, includ-
ing some who live in
Vancouver and studied
outside Japan.
Among its activities,
the group has solicited
donations on the streets
of Vancouver and hosted
photo exhibitions on the
state of the disaster area.
Some Canadians
pitched in to stand on
the street collecting
donations, and within
about two months of the
disaster the group had
collected and sent about
330,000 Canadian dollars
(about $310,000).
The shore cleanup
began this March, after
the group asked Japanese

president tightens

grip on media

CARACAS, Venezuela
(AP) As Gov. Henrique
Capriles campaigned for
president of Venezuela
last April, he couldn't
venture more than a
few steps without being
hounded by dozens of
sharp-elbowed camera-
men and photographers.
Nearly eight months
later, the visibly thinner
and exhausted opposi-
tion leader is accompa-
nied by just a handful
of journalists at what
was supposed to be one
of the final, electrifying
opposition rallies ahead
of this weekend's mayoral
Critics say the shrink-
ing media coverage
has been deliberate.
Even while Venezuelans
endure their toughest
economic crisis in 15
years of socialist rule,
the opposition has been
largely knocked from
public view by what
they claim is a govern-
ment-led campaign to
intimidate media outlets
that give airtime to the
opposition and the
nation's mounting woes.
Between January and
September, the number

of attacks on journalists,
cases of harassment and
reports of censorship has
risen 56 percent com-
pared with the first nine
months of 2012, accord-
ing to a complaint filed
by press freedom groups
in October to the Inter-
American Commission
on Human Rights.
Even more damaging
has been the sale of
several media outlets
once critical of the
government to owners
who more closely follow
the official line.
Capriles calls it an
"information blockade,"
and warns that President
Nicolas Maduro's alleged
attempts to silence the
opposition signal a
more authoritarian style
of rule to come unless
resoundingly reject his
policies at the ballot box
this Sunday. The election
for mayors and city
councils is a dogfight
in this deeply polar-
ized country. It is also
Maduro's first electoral
test since he defeated
Capriles in April by
a razor-thin margin
following Hugo Chavez's
death from cancer.

Palestinians: Soldiers

kill 15-year-old

(AP) Relatives say
Israeli soldiers have shot
and killed a 15-year-old
Palestinian boy in the
West Bank.
Wajdi Ramahi from the
Jalazoun refugee camp
near Ramallah said his
son, Wajeeh, was killed
by a shot to the back
Saturday. Ramahi said his

son was playing football

something to drink. The
father said his son was
shot from an Israeli army

participate to show their
gratitude for the dona-
tions and other support
Canada had given.
Excursions to the coast
of the city of Ucluelet on
Vancouver Island and
some outlying islands
yielded about 40 gar-
bage bags of styrofoam,
pieces of plastic, plastic
bottles, lumber and
other debris.
According to estimates
by the Environment

Ministry, the tsunami
swept about 5 million
tons of debris out to
sea, including houses
and cars. Of this, about
1.5 million tons is
believed to be buoyant

of wood, which is now
arriving on the West
Coast of North America.
The Japan Love Project
is headed by Hiroki
Takai, 32. "The disaster
is still going on, and

of that. I want to send a
message from Canada

that the disaster hasn't
been forgotten," he said.

Massive crowds, world leaders to honor Mandela

* SEC CHAMPIONSHIP: No. 3 Auburn 59, No. 5 Missouri 42

Auburn amasses 545 rushing yards to win SEC title

ATLANTA -If offense
was the only require-
ment, Auburn would be
a shoe-in for the BCS
Tre Mason rushed
for 304 yards and four
touchdowns, leading
No. 3 Auburn to a wild
59-42 victory over
No. 5 Missouri in a
Southeastern Conference
title showdown Saturday
that looked more like a
video game.

Auburn (12-1) kept
alive its hopes of playing
for the national champi-
onship, though the Tigers
needed No. 2 Ohio State
to lose in the Big Ten con-
ference title game, which
began about the time
Auburn was wrapping up
the offensive shootout at
the Georgia Dome.
"We deserve it,"
receiver Sammie Coates
said. "We won the SEC
championship. What else
do you want us to do?"
Coates and his

teammates headed off
to watch the games that
could decide their fate.
If Auburn misses out on
the BCS title game, it will
head to the Sugar Bowl
as the SEC champion.
Missouri (11-2) should
be in the mix for a New
Year's Day bowl, with the
Capital One, Cotton and
Outback games among
the possible destinations.
Auburn set an SEC

record with 677 yards,

Hoff's opponents.
That's mostly what
he did on Saturday as
Charlotte High School
dominated the Gary Freis
Memorial Duals, sweeping
its eight-team pool before
beating Palmetto 41-31 in
the championship match.
Hoff pinned seven
of the eight opponents
he defeated in the
138-pound class to earn
top honors in the lower
weight classes. But he
focused on the team ethic
more than his individual
"It was a lot of fun to
work out with the team.
I like these tournaments

team morale," he said.
"We work well as a team.

* NFL: Tampa Bay




TAMPA-At 5 feet 10
and a cheeseburger over
200 pounds, Keith Tandy
still struggles to look the
part of a safety. But he has
had no trouble playing
like one.
The second-year
cornerback from West
Virginia was converted
in the offseason and is
tied with Bucs linebacker
Lavonte David for the
team lead with three
interceptions despite
limited playing time.
"I used to see him once
a year. He intercepted us
twice," said Bucs coach
Greg Schiano, whose
former Rutgers team
was a Big East rival with
the Mountaineers. "We
thought that he could be
a really good sub safety
because he's got good ball
skills, coverage skills.
"We could bring him
down as a cover guy.
Where he's played beyond
what we expected is when
he got called to be a base

An Urban legend

With the "Shore Lines" column
on hiatus today, we're publishing
highlights from "The Hat Trick" at

hree things to consider
while pondering the state Rob
of defense in the SEC ...
1, Ohio State coach Urban SHOI
Meyer likes to present himself SPORTS
with an air of moral superiority,
despite a track record for discipline at
Florida that says he is anything but.
If you remember Meyer was the coach
who, while at Florida, tried to pass off
a half-game suspension of linebacker
Brandon Spikes as discipline for gouging
the eyes of an opponent against Georgia.
Spikes felt so uneasy about the suspen-
sion he voluntarily sat out the Gators'
next game.
That's just one example. There are
others with higher profiles I'm sure
you've heard of.
So now Ohio State had a fistfight
against Michigan with two players
caught on camera throwing punches.
One of them, guard Marcus Hall,
performed the classy move of making
an obscene gesture to the Michigan
Stadium crowd as he left the field.
Two of them, in fact.
So Meyer went the gutless route
and chose not to suspend either Hall
or Dontre Wilson (also ejected) for
Saturday's Big Ten championship game.
Par for the course, wouldn't you say?
But the Big Ten itself doesn't have a
leg to stand on either as it chose not to
suspend either player. But then, the Big
Ten sometimes likes to pretend it holds
moral superiority as well.




Ledecky breaks 1,650 free record

The records keep piling
up for Katie Ledecky.
Four months after set-
ting world records in the
800-meter freestyle and
1,500-meter freestyle at
the World Championships
in Barcelona, Ledecky
continued her banner
year Saturday by shat-
tering the American
record in the 1,650-yard
freestyle at the Winter
National Championships.
Ledecky's time of 15
minutes, 15.17 seconds
was more than 9 seconds
faster than the previous
American record of

Dennis was also unbeat-
en for Charlotte, while
freshman Matt Gjerde
was 7-1 in the 106-pound
group, losing only in the
final match.
"It's been great. The
work ethic has been real
good and they're a fun
group of kids who got
excited about that last
match," Charlotte coach
Evan Robinson said.
"There's still a lot of year
left. We don't want to
peak here."
Meanwhile, Lemon Bay
and Port Charlotte had
great individual perfor-
mances that stood out,
even if their dual records
didn't reflect that.
The Pirates, who
brought only six wres-
tlers, lost all seven of
their duals. However, in
individual meets, the

Of course, the NFL is trumpeting that

Busy Rays still have offseason work to do

A lot of what the Rays
talk about at this week's
winter meetings and
a vast majority of what is
said about them is like-
ly to concern a potential
trade of LHP David Price.
But even after what
has, by their standards,
been a busy start to the
offseason, they still have
more to do, primarily on
"If the season opened
tomorrow, I think we
would feel pretty confi-
dent about our ability to
keep runs off the board,"
executive VP Andrew
Friedman said.

First base, Friedman
admits bluntly, is "an area
we absolutely have to
The Rays are hopeful of
bringing back incumbent
James Loney, but until he
further drops his already
reduced price from three
years and $27 million,
that seems unlikely. And
the Pirates are said to be
The Rays would prefer
to stay with a lefty hitter,
but other free agents,
besides Lyle Overbay,
are right-handed: Corey
Hart, Kevin Youkilis, Mark
Reynolds. The trade mar-
ket may be more prom-
ising with lefties Mitch

Moreland (Rangers),
Logan Morrison (Marlins)
and Adam Lind (Blue
Jays), plus switch-hitter
Justin Smoak (Mariners)
and right-hander Mark
Trumbo (Angels).
Morrison seems likely to
be moved, and's
Joe Frisaro reported the
Marlins have some inter-
est in Sean Rodriguez.
Given a current plan
to rotate DH at-bats
among several players, the
configuration of the Rays
bench will be critical, with
the handed-ness of who
ends up at first base part
of the equation.
Reports of interest in
Mark Ellis and Jamey

Carroll suggests they want
a veteran right-handed
hitter who can play
second, which could
lead to Ben Zobrist again
shuffling between second
base and the outfield.
But there are several
ways they could end up
doing this. And though
they value positional
flexibility, there is still a
chance they end up add-
ing more of a DH-style bat
if they find a good deal.
Also, in the rare position
of having catching depth,
they are expected to trade
Jose Lobaton.
The standard recon-
struction of the bullpen
is under way, with former

closer RHP Heath Bell
and RHP Juan Carlos
Oviedo joining RHP Joel
Peralta and LHPs Jake
McGee and Alex Torres.
Though they feel covered,
and either Bell or Oviedo
could claim the closer's
job, Friedman said they
will, as usual, keep looking
to improve. That could
include a bid if one of the
established closer say,
Fernando Rodney -
ends up lingering on the
The rotation is solid
now, though a trade of
Price (or RHP Jeremy
Hellickson) would leave
an opening they could
seek to fill externally.

Tiger leads after

blustery round

Calif. After a day of so
much uncertainty about
where the ball was going,
Tiger Woods landed in a
place where the outcome
is rarely in doubt.
He was in the lead.
Woods survived a rough
round of swirling wind
at Sherwood on Saturday
with two birdies on his
last three holes. That
enabled him to salvage an
even-par 72 and maintain
his two-shot lead over
Zach Johnson going into
the final round of the
World Challenge.
Woods' round featured
a tee shot into the water,
a three-putt from 6 feet
and a long delay on the
18th fairway as he tried
to figure out which way
the wind was blowing. He
took a little off an 8-iron
when he felt the wind
switch yet again and holed
a 12-foot birdie putt.
"I'm pleased at having
the lead not real
pleased with the way I
putted today," Woods
said. "I left a few out there
But he wasn't alone.
The average score was
just under 73, and every-
one ran into problems
somewhere along the way,
particularly on the 15th,
a par 3 that played to an
average score of 4.17.
Johnson made two double

bogeys on par 3s on the
back nine, and didn't feel
as though he hit a poor
shot on either hole. It was
simply a matter of getting
the wind to cooperate.
"I didn't take myself out
of it," said Johnson, who
also birdied two of the last
three holes for a 72.

Donaldson maintains
lead in South Africa: In Sun
City, South Africa, Jamie Donaldson
maintained his three-shot lead through
the third round of the Nedbank Golf
Challenge, putting the Welshman in
sight of his biggest career payday in his
Sun City debut.

Welshman surges into
Hong Kong lead: In Hong
Kong, Wales'Stuart Manley moved
into position for his first European Tour
title, shooting a 4-under 66 to take
the third-round lead in the Hong Kong

Phatlum edges Lewis
in Dubai: Thailand's Pornanong
Phatlum rallied to win the Dubai Ladies
Masters, hitting a 54-degree wedge
to 2 feet on the par-5 final hole for a
birdie and a one-stroke victory over
American Stacy Lewis in Dubai, United
Arab Emirates.

Green extends LPGA
Q-school lead: In Daytona
Beach, Jaye Marie Green of Boca Raton
increased her lead to nine strokes in
the LPGA Tour qualifying tournament,
reaching 25 under after four rounds.
The 19-year-old had a 5-under 67 on
LPGA International's Hills Course and
has gone 57 holes without a bogey.

YorkYankees completed a
seven-year deal with free-
agent outfielder Jacoby
Ellsbury on Saturday.
Ellsbury, fresh off
winning the World Series
with Boston, agreed to
a $153 million deal with
New York on Tuesday. The
contract includes a $21
million team option for
the 2021 season, with a
$5 million buyout. If the
option is exercised, the
deal would be worth $169
million over eight years.
The Yankees will hold
an introductory news
conference for Ellsbury
at Yankee Stadium on
Ellsbury, who turned
30 in September, joins
a crowded outfield
that will include Carlos
Beltran, who agreed to
a three-year, $45 million
contract, according to
two people familiar with
the deal. Beltran's agree-
ment came hours after
All-Star second baseman
Robinson Cano decided
to leave for Seattle.
Outfielders Alfonso
Soriano, Brett Gardner,
Ichiro Suzuki and
Vernon Wells are all
expected to return. Curtis
Granderson, though,
left for a deal with the
crosstown Mets.

Wilson, beard staying
with Dodgers: The Los Angeles
Dodgers said they signed free-agent
reliever Brian Wilson to a $10 million,
one-year deal to stay with the team.
The deal includes an $8.5 million
player option for 2015. Wilson, a
right-hander and the 2010 major
league saves leader while with San
Francisco, missed almost the entire
2012 season when the Giants won
their second World Series in three
years. He tossed scoreless relief in
17 of 18 regular season games this
season, going 2-1 with a 0.66 ERA.
The 31-year-old reliever was 1-0 and
pitched six scoreless innings in six
postseason appearances.

Around the majors: The
Boston Red Sox signed right-handed
reliever Edward Mujica to a two-year
contract. He had 37 saves and a
career-best 2.78 ERA for St. Louis in
2013 and was selected an All-Star
for the first time. But he lost his job
as closer with a series of bad outings
in September and pitched only two
innings in the Cardinals'playoffrun,
which ended with a six-game World
Series loss to Boston ...
Chad Quails agreed to a two-year
contract with the Houston Astros
with a team option for 2016. The
right-handed reliever went 5-2 with
a 2.61 ERA in 66 games for the Miami
Marlins this season and has made at
least 50 appearances in nine straight

"This is a position that
we've been in before,"
Florida State goalkeeper
KelseyWys said. "But I
think that we have a great
coaching staff, and they
put in the time and get
us prepared. So I think
that once we have our
game plan ahead of us, if
we can execute our game
plan, we'll be all right."
Florida State reached
this year's title game with
a 3-2 victory over Atlantic
Coast Conference rival
Virginia Tech on Friday.
Coach Mark Krikorian
wants his team to balance
the urgency of wanting
to hoist the crown with
"My hope is that we're
going to be able to vary
our attack a little bit
and sometimes use the
athletic quality to run at
their back line and put
them under that pressure,
but also to step on the
ball and maybe slow
the game a little bit and
dictate the tempo a little
bit more," Krikorian said.
"It's something we've
done through the course
of the season very well."

Vonn feels better on
second day back: Skiing far
more aggressively than in her season
debut a day earlier, Lindsey Vonn was
in an unofficial 10th place after the
first 45 skiers in a World Cup downhill
Saturday. The 2010 Olympic downhill
champion said she felt"much more
like myself"in the second race of a
comeback from reconstructive surgery
on her right knee in February. Aiming
to peak for the Sochi Olympics, she
will race a super-G on Sunday. ...
On the men's side, Patrick Kueng of
Switzerland won a World Cup race for
the first time, ending the dominance
of Norway's Aksel Lund Svindal in
super-G on Saturday. American Ted

* WEEK 14

* NFL:




Jacksonville Jaguars coach
Gus Bradley let his players
jump around on the field,
dance in the locker room
and hoot and holler as
much as they wanted
Thursday night.
He also rewarded them
with three days off.
When they return
Monday, Bradley plans to
ground them a little bit.
"If we're going to boast,
we boast our weak-
nesses to each other,"
Bradley said a day after
Jacksonville's 27-20 win
over the Houston Texans.
Bradley doesn't want the
hottest team in the AFC
blowing any smoke. The
Jaguars (4-9) have won
three in a row and four of
five games since the bye,
a modest turnaround that
Bradley and players are
enjoying. But the rookie
head coach is trying to
keep them humble and
hungry, sticking with his
motto of "eating crumbs"
after wins.
"I don't want us feeling
like we did some good
things, we accomplished
some things," Bradley
said. "We're getting better
and we still have a lot of
work to do."
Following the prime-
time victory, several
Jacksonville players used
the spotlight to respond
to critics who called the
team the worst in NFL
"Everybody who was
talking noise can just eat
some crow," guard Uche
Nwaneri said.
Running back Maurice
Jones-Drew called out a
specific sports talk show
for apparently ripping the
Texans-Jaguars game long
before kickoff.
"It's like, 'Listen, we
are all adults and we all
get paid to do a job and
sometimes you don't do
your job to the best of
your ability,'" Jones-Drew
said. "But you shouldn't be
cracking jokes about guys
that are busting their butts
every day and no one is
quitting on our team.
"They still talk trash
about us. We are going to
keep getting better and we
are going to keep making
plays. We are going to
keep doing our thing and
be happy for everyone
around us that is making
Bradley let his players
vent, knowing they were
frustrated by losing the
first eight games by
double digits.
'As long as it doesn't
become a distraction, it's a
good thing because I think
it can elevate practice
even more and give us
even better practice so
we can get better even
more," Bradley said.

Mike Tomlin gets back to business. Winner: Steelers. Dolphins aren't playing Jets again, much to their regret. FF: Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders a good play.
Oakland (4-8) at N.Y. Jets (5-7) 1 p.m. No TV Jets by 21 V2
This matchup is unsightly. Winner: Jets. They're a mess, but Raiders don't go east well. FF: Jets QB Geno Smith hasn't thrown a TD pass since before World Series started.
Indianapolis (8-4) at Cincinnati (8-4) 1 p.m. No TV Bengals by 232

Storylines in play for Week 14:

The Indianapolis Colts will send
Daniel Adongo onto the field this
weekend. Why is that significant?
Because the former rugby player from
Kenya learned how to pull on pads in
July when he first worked out with the
Colts. He'll be active as a linebacker for
the first time this season after being on
the practice squad all year. Adongo is
6-foot-6 and 247 pounds (that's three
inches taller than Bruce Irvin). He'll
probably play special teams and should
be interesting to watch.

This season started with Super Bowl
hopes? That's the question being asked
around the Houston Texans, who have
lost 11 consecutive games and fired
coach Gary Kubiak this week. Wade
Phillips was named interim coach for
the lost bunch in Texas. Things aren't
getting easier for Houston, either. The
Texans are at Indianapolis today then
play host to Denver next week.

The Minnesota Vikings can't get
much done this season, but, once again,
that's not the fault of running back
Adrian Peterson. After hammering the
Chicago Bears for 211 yards last week,
Peterson has vaulted to the top of the
rushing list. He won't get to 2,000 yards
this season, though is well-positioned
to win his second consecutive rushing
title after tearing his ACL and MCL in
late 2011.

Denver coach John Fox will be back
on the sideline and out of the booth
five weeks after heart surgery. Denver
was frigid this week. Fox twice coached
practice with the temperature near zero,
which made him and his doctors feel
he would be able to handle the game
from the sideline. The Broncos play host
to the Tennessee Titans today, when the
high is supposed to be a mere 23 and
the low minus-2.

Seattle's Russell Wilson, Denver's
Peyton Manning and Philadelphia's
Nick Foles are generally accepted
as the top three candidates for this
season's NFL MVP Manning is the
favorite for the award. Each have big
days ahead. Manning has to play in
the cold which he insists is not a
problem against the seventh-ranked
passing defense of the Titans. Wilson
will clash with a San Francisco defense
that is among the best in the league.
Foles will face a Detroit defense that is
26th against the pass.
Todd Dybas,
News Tribune (Tacoma, Wash.)

News and notes from around the

The Green Bay Packers will have
to try to win for the first time in more
than a month without Aaron Rodgers.
Coach Mike McCarthy ruled out the star
quarterback for today's game against
Atlanta. Rodgers hasn't played since
breaking his left collarbone early in
Green Bay's 27-20 loss to Chicago on
Nov. 4. The Packers last won on Oct. 27,
beating the Minnesota Vikings 44-31.

Cleveland QB Jason Campbell will
return to the starting lineup today,
when the Browns visit New England.
An independent neurologist medically
cleared Campbell to return to game
action for the first time since he suffered
a concussion Nov. 24 in a 27-11 loss to
the Pittsburgh Steelers....
Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera
said RB DeAngelo Williams will return
for tonight's NFC South showdown
against the New Orleans Saints. DE
Charles Johnson, who leads the team
with 8 sacks and missed the last two
games with a knee injury, also will
return ...
The Baltimore Ravens activated TE
Dennis Pitta, one day before their game
against the Minnesota Vikings. Pitta,
who had been on injured reserve with
a dislocated and fractured hip that he
suffered during training camp in late
July, is likely to be limited against the
Vikings, but he could provide a spark to
a Ravens'struggling passing game ...
The San Diego Chargers moved LB
Melvin Ingram from the physically
unable to perform list to the active
roster. Ingram, the team's 2012 first-

Tandy, 24, is among
some of the young faces
who have helped the
Bucs lead the NFL with
17 interceptions. It's not
by accident. If Tampa Bay
has done anything right
this season, it rebuilt a
pass defense that was
historically bad and worst
in the league a year ago.
The Bucs went on a
shopping spree in the off-
season by signing All-Pro
safety Dashon Goldson
and swinging the trade for
Jets cornerback Darrelle
Revis. They also used a
second-round pick- the
top remaining pick on
Mississippi State corner-
back Johnthan Banks.
However, the Bucs have
spread the wealth. Nine
players have combined
for those interceptions,
including two each by
Revis, Banks, safety Mark
Barron and linebacker
Mason Foster.
"We went out and got
some guys that were truly
excellent players and really
good leaders," Schiano
said. "That's what you're

The confounding thing
for the Bucs is they are tied
for fourth in the league in
turnover margin at plus-
10, but it hasn't shown up
in the win/loss record.
In each of the past eight
years, every team that led
the league in interceptions
won at least 10 games.
Already, the Bucs are on
course to be the only team
in the past nine seasons
to be at least plus-10 and
have a losing record.

Bill Sheridan said the
team's defensive line and
its pressure on the quar-
terback is responsible for
many of the interceptions.
"I think they've been
valuable," Sheridan said.
"We need them to be.
This is a passing league."
Revis, who said he
fights boredom because
quarterbacks rarely look
his way, was unaware the
Bucs had the most inter-
ceptions in the league.
"We've been having
a lot of guys injured or
banged up a lot, and guys

Revis said. "That's a great
accomplishment, but I
think we've played up
and down this year. I've
been trying to find ways
to be consistent. We're still

Stanford's Tyler Gaffney runs past Arizona State's Di
ship Saturday in Tempe, Ariz. Stanford won 38-14.




imarious Randall for a touchdown during the first half of the Pac-12 champion-


:-12 title

Stanford earns shot at repeating as Rose Bowl champion

TEMPE, Ariz. -Tyler
Gaffney ran for 133 yards
and scored three touch-
downs in a dominating
first half, leading No. 7
Stanford back to the Rose
Bowl with a 38-14 victory
over No. 11 Arizona State
in the Pac-12 title game
Saturday night.
Stanford (11-2) raced
out to a big lead in its
first game with Arizona
State this season and
had its way with the Sun
Devils again early in the
rematch, building a 28-7
lead early in the second
quarter. Gaffney did most
of the damage, scoring
on a 69-yard run on the

Cardinal's second play
and a pair of 1-yard runs.
Stanford consistently
gouged Arizona State for
big plays, racking up 517
yards to earn a shot at
repeating as Rose Bowl
Arizona State (10-3)
stumbled early for the
second straight game
against the Cardinal and
never really recovered to
spoil its Rose Bowl hopes.
D.J. Foster accounted
for 142 total yards and
two touchdowns for the
Sun Devils, who will likely
play in the Holiday or
Alamo Bowl instead of
making their first trip to
Pasadena since 1997.
Kevin Hogan threw for

277 yards and a touch-
down, Ty Montgomery
scored two touchdowns
and Stanford held Arizona
State to 311 total yards to
earn a spot in a BCS bowl
for the fourth straight

Rice 41, Marshall 24:
In Houston, Rice clinched its first
outright conference title since
1957, running over Marshall in the
Conference USA championship. The
Owls (10-3) relied on their bruising
ground attack to subdue the Herd
(9-4), with running backs Charles
Ross and Luke Turner delivering via
versatility. Rice gained 250 of its 489
yards on the ground. Ross rushed
for 109 yards and two touchdowns,
upping his season total to 14 and
matching the program single-season

mark set by Trevor Cobb in 1991.
Turner passed for two touchdowns,
doubling his career total.

Southern 34, Jackson St
27: In Houston, Dray Joseph hit Lee
Doss for a 16-yard touchdown pass
to give Southern University a double
overtime victory over Jackson State
Saturday in the Southwestern Athletic
Conference championship. During the
ensuing drive by Jackson State (8-4,
8-1), running back Tommy Gooden
stepped out of bounds to negate what
would have been a 5-yard touchdown
pass from Clayton Moore. Joseph
was 27 of 46 for 337 yards passing
with three touchdowns, two to Willie
Quinn, to lead the Jaguars. Southern
(9-4, 7-2) won its third conference
championship game in school history.

a huge boost.
"You're looking at one
of the top running backs
in college football," coach
Gus Malzahn said. "He
was a warrior today.
In a game where neither
team played a lick of
defense, Auburn finally
stopped Missouri on
fourth-and-1 deep in its

Fisher's current deal

not quite as thrilling as
his 109-yard return of a
missed field goal to beat
Alabama, but another
huge play for the nation's
biggest turnaround team.
Auburn, which was 3-9
a year ago and didn't win a
game in the SEC, claimed
the title in its first year
under Malzahn. The Tigers
didn't even need a dramat-
ic finish to do it, holding
Missouri scoreless in the
final quarter while Mason
notched two more TDs to
break open a game that
was close most of the way.
Missouri had its own
impressive bounce-back
after struggling its first year
in the SEC. But coach Gary
Pinkel's team was denied
a quick championship
in its new league after
leaving the Big 12, unable
to slow must less top -
Auburn's dynamic offense.
"There's a real frustration
that comes over you on de-

after you over and over and
over again," Pinkel said.
"We had trouble stopping
it, obviously, and couldn't
get it fixed."

The new deal would put
him among the highest
paid coaches in the
country. Fisher is 43-10
in four seasons at Florida
State since taking over for
Bobby Bowden.

James Franklin passed
for 303 yards and three
touchdowns, while Dorial
Green-Beckham hauled
in six passes for 144 yards
and a couple of scores.
Missouri piled up 534
yards the teams com-
bined for 1,211 yards in
a conference supposedly
known for defense but
it wasn't nearly enough
against Auburn's hurry-up
spread offense.
Coming into the game,
Missouri was one of the
top teams in the nation
against the run and ranked
second in the SEC behind
Alabama. The most yards
they had given up on
the ground was 184 the
previous week in a victory
over 2012 Heisman Trophy
winner Johnny Manziel
and Texas A&M.
Mason had more yards
than that in the first half,
putting up 195 by halftime
and just 6 yards off the
SEC championship game
record. He broke the mark
set by LSUs Justin Vincent
in 2003 on the second play
of the second half.

Last week, we had our steering com-
mittee meeting for CHIP (Community
Health Improvement Partnership).
Our agenda included several items,
but the most important one was creat-
ing a website for the organization. We
felt that was one of the least expensive
ways for us to get our message to the
public, as well as a medium to keep
our members informed.
The site will contain information
as to our mission and programs. Our
committees will all have a section to
relate their projects, services, needs
and wants. We will also include
contact information for our members.
Information and links to our commu-
nity partners will also be provided.
We are excited with this opportunity
and plan to be operational after the
first of the year. Your suggestions are
solicited as to how we could make the
website more meaningful.
Dr, Faezeh Andrews, who directs
the 211 effort, called my attention
to the program's website. It is part
of the Charlotte County website and
provides interesting information
about the needs of Charlotte County
citizens. Visit When
the site comes up, click on monthly


Q: I'm thinking about getting a
disability insurance policy from
a private company. If I become
disabled and have a private policy,
would it reduce my Social Security
disability benefit?
A: No. Your eligibility for Social
Security disability benefits is not
affected by any private insurance
you may have. However, worker's
compensation and certain other
public disability payments may affect
your Social Security benefit. For more
information go to www.socialsecurity.
gov or call our toll free number, 800-
772-1213 (TTY 800-325-0778).
Q: I had a serious leg injury three
years ago and received disability
benefits for about 19 months until I
could return to work. Unfortunately,
my leg problems have returned and I
may not be able to continue working
much longer. When I first applied
for benefits, I waited five full months
before I was eligible to receive my
first check. If I reapply for benefits,
will I again be subject to this waiting
A: No. If you become disabled a
second time within five years after
your previous disability benefits
stopped, there is no five month
waiting period before benefits start.
If your claim is approved, you can
receive benefits for the first full
month of disability. However, it can
take from three to five months to
get a decision on a disability claim,
depending on how long it takes to
obtain your medical records and any
other information we need to decide
whether you are disabled.
You can help shorten this time by
providing as much information as
possible when you apply for benefits.
For more information about applying
for benefits, we suggest that you
review our booklet, Disability, at You can
apply online at www.socialsecurity.

people paralyzed from the neck down
rapidly learned to use the tongue
device to pilot their wheelchairs
through an obstacle course full of
twists and turns, and to operate a
computer, too.
"It's really powerful because it's
so intuitive," said Jason DiSanto, 39,
of Atlanta, who was among the first
spinal cord-injured patients to get his
tongue pierced for science and try
out the system. "The first time I did it,

The team of researchers in Atlanta
and Chicago put the Tongue Drive
System to the test against one of the
most widely used assistive technol-
ogies, called sip-and-puff, that users
operate by breathing into a straw.
Using the tongue, patients operated
their wheelchairs a bit faster but
just as accurately and on average,
they performed about three times
better on video game-like computer
tests, said lead researcher Maysam
Ghovanloo, director of Georgia Tech's
bionics lab.
The research, reported in the jour-
nal Science Translational Medicine,
is an early step that allowed use of
the device only inside laboratories.
Larger studies in real-world condi-
tions are required before the device
ever could be sold. And the tongue
piercing may be a turn-off for some
potential users, the researchers
But the work is attracting attention
from specialists who say there's a big
need for more assistive technologies
so they can customize care for those
with severely disabilities.
"For people who have very limited
ability to control a power wheelchair,
there aren't that many options,"
said Dr. Brad Dicianno, a rehabili-
tation specialist at the University of
Pittsburgh Medical Center who wasn't
involved with the new research.

American Heart Association conference highlights research


There's good news for those who
suffer from cardiac diseases. At its
annual Scientific Sessions symposium
in November, the American Heart
Association presented advances in
heart-related areas such as stroke,
mitral valve repair, and other cardio-
vascular conditions. Held in Dallas,
the conference featured more than
5,000 scientific presentations with
more than 18,000 cardiovascular
health professionals attending.

Valve replacement
A recent clinical trial showed that
patients with leaky heart valves had
similar heart function and survival
rates whether their mitral valve was
repaired or replaced. The mitral valve
controls blood from the heart's upper
left to lower left chambers, allowing
blood to flow one direction through
the heart and into the body.
Leaking mitral valves are often
a complication from heart attack.
They allow blood to flow back into
the heart's upper left chamber a
condition known as ischemic mitral
regurgitation resulting in other
conditions including heart failure
or serious rhythm problems called
A two-year study concluded that
whether repaired or replaced, patient
survival rates were similar. However, a
repaired valve was likely to leak again
at some point.

The study found that at one year,
the death rate was 14.3 percent for the
repair group and 17.6 percent for the
replacement group. The recurrence of
mitral regurgitation at 12 months was
32.6 percent in the repair group and
2.3 percent in the replacement group.
Three patients in the repair group un-
derwent additional surgery while none
of the patients in the replacement
group needed a repeat procedure.
"I think there is a bias in favor of
valve repair versus replacement, so
this information should be very help-
ful for cardiologists and surgeons in
choosing an appropriate approach for
this growing patient population," said
Dr. Michael Acker, the William Maul
Measey, professor of surgery in the
University of Pennsylvania's Perelman
School of Medicine and a clinical
investigator with the Cardiothoracic
Surgical Trials Network (CTSN), in a
press release.

Cardiac arrest-
look for the warning signs
More than half of middle-age
men who had sudden cardiac arrest
actually had possible warning signs up
to a month before their hearts stopped
Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart
stops due to a failure in its electrical
system. Unless the heart is shocked
back into action with CPR or a de-
fibrillator, cardiac arrest is fatal.
Of the approximately 360,000 car-
diac arrests in the U.S. each year, less

than 10 percent of people who suffer
a cardiac arrest outside the hospital
The new research is part of
the 11 -year-old Oregon Sudden
Unexpected Death Study, which in-
volves 1 million people in the Portland
metro area.
Among 567 men who had
out-of-hospital cardiac arrests, 53
percent had symptoms such as chest
pain, shortness of breath, dizziness,
fainting or palpitations prior to the
cardiac arrest. Most of the symptoms
occurred between four weeks and one
hour before the sudden cardiac arrest.
Researchers are conducting similar
work in women.
"The lesson is, if you have these
kinds of symptoms, please don't blow
them off. Go see your health-care
provider." said Dr. Sumeet Chugh,
senior author and associate director
for genomic cardiology at the Cedars-
Sinai Heart Institute, in a news release.

Older smokers who quit
cut heart disease risk faster
Cigarette smokers who are over 65
years of age may be able to lower their
risk of cardiovascular disease-related
deaths to the level of never-smokers
when they quit, faster than previously
Older people who smoked less
than 32 "pack years" 3.2 packs (20
cigarettes per pack) a day for no more
than 10 years or less than one pack a
day for 30 years and gave up smoking

15 or fewer years ago lowered their
risks of heart disease and stroke to the
same level as those who had never
Previous research showed it may
take up to 15 years of abstinence for
smokers to reach similar cardiovas-
cular death risks as people who never
smoke. But many of the people in the
study were able to reduce their risk
in less than 15 years (median eight
But don't think all the damage
caused by puffing that smoke
Smokers who smoked less than 32
pack years but quit up to 15 or more
years ago still had higher risks of dying
from causes unrelated to cardiovas-
cular health, such as cancer, chronic
obstructive pulmonary disease and
emphysema. Former smokers who
smoked more than 32 pack years had
higher risks of dying from any health

Drug may do more
harm than good
An experimental drug, varespladib,
doesn't prevent cardiovascular events
from recurring in patients with
blocked blood vessels to the heart. In
fact, compared to placebo, varespladib
was also associated with an increased
risk of heart attacks.
Because of these findings, scientists
decided to suspend a large clinical

Getting a heads-up for a heart attack


Carmen Quinones wasn't feeling
well when she got home one day last
month after getting some blood work
done to monitor her diabetes.
She was short of breath and pale.
She had to lie down.
Then her chest started vibrating.
About a year earlier, soon after her
first heart attack, Quinones had a
device implanted that would warn her
when she was having another heart
attack. Now, the alarm was going off,
telling her to call her doctor. (If her
heart problem had been more severe, a
more urgent alarm with more vibra-
tions would have told her to call 911.)
Her doctor sent the Woodbury, N.J.,
woman to the emergency department
at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center
in Camden, N.J. In short order, she was
having a stent replaced. The old one
was blocked.
Doctors later told her she probably
would have had a heart attack in a day
or so.
Quinones, 54, who emerged from
the episode without new heart
damage, was thankful that she was
among those testing the experimental
heart-attack alarm, known as the
AngelMed Guardian System.
"I felt great, because that saved my
life," she said.
The day may come when high-risk
patients will routinely be able to
choose devices like the one Quinones
has, sparing them from wondering
whether every case of heartburn or
pain in their chest is a heart attack.
The warning systems, which include
an internal electrocardiogram that
monitors changes in heartbeats,
may be particularly helpful for the
thousands of patients who don't have
typical heart-attack symptoms and
wait too long before seeking medical
Devender Akula, an electrophysiolo-
gist at Lourdes who was involved with
the trial, said the experimental alarm
brought "added peace of mind" for
patients likely to have a heart attack,
which occurs when a blockage in a
blood vessel keeps the heart from
getting enough oxygen. He sees it as a
"big game-changer in the future."
The study, which enrolled 1,020
patients, ended in July. David Keenan,
vice president of clinical and regula-
tory affairs for Angel Medical Services,
said the New Jersey company will be-
gin its final data analysis in January. If

the device gets FDA approval, it could
be commercially available by 2015, he
said. It is already in use in Brazil and
The AngelMed Guardian is implant-
ed under the skin near the collarbone.
Patients also carry a device about the
size of a beeper. (Quinones puts hers
in a little purse she wears around her
neck.) When the heart shows signs
of inadequate oxygen, the implanted
monitor vibrates, and the exterior
device shows a red or yellow light.
St. Jude Medical, an international
medical-device maker based in St.
Paul, Minn., has licensed the technol-
ogy and is testing a version it added to
its implantable cardioverter defibril-
lators (ICDs) devices that shock the
heart when its rhythm is dangerously
out of whack. The company plans to
enroll more than 5,000 people at up
to 200 sites. Europe has approved the
special ICDs.
"The beauty of this technology is
that it has the potential not only to
provide an early alert that a heart at-
tack may be imminent, but it also may
provide information that a heart attack
has not occurred," said Mark Carlson,
vice president of global clinical affairs
and chief medical officer at St. Jude.
Being able to rule out a heart attack
is especially important for patients
whose ICDs have shocked the heart,
he said. Their rhythm problems may
be caused either by electrical abnor-
malities or a heart attack. Knowing
a heart attack has not occurred can
spare patients from expensive tests
and procedures, Carlson said.

A Better Solution office celebrates anniversary

When Carol Binette-Snodgrass
worked in the trust department at var-
ious branches of the Barnett Bank, she
had conversations with many clients.
Besides their business concerns, many
said they wished for someone to assist
with their day-to-day living needs.
Some needed a companion for their
spouses while they had to be out of
town; others needed transportation or
homemaking assistance.
Those conversations sparked her
passion for helping people. Applying
her caring personality and business
savvy, Binette-Snodgrass founded A
Better Solution, Inc. in 1998 in Venice.
The company opened its Punta
Gorda office at 207 Cross St., Suite 102,
in 2012. To celebrate the one-year an-
niversary, a reception was held recent-
ly, along with a ribbon cutting by the
Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce.
The company is a nonmedical
agency that provides services for
clients on a temporary and long-term
basis in a client's home or in a
facility. Services are available, at hourly
rates (no extra charge for nights or
weekends), 24 hours a day, and 7 days
a week. Emergency service and free
assessments are available.
Services offered include homemak-
ing/light housekeeping; companion-
ship; transportation (appointments,
shopping, errands, visiting family and
friends, or any time someone can't
drive); meal planning, preparation and

Growing old and feeling down


Depression is alarmingly common
in older Americans. It's highly treat-
able, but a number of obstacles -
led by a nagging generational stigma
surrounding mental health often
stand in the way of proper care.
About 20 percent of people ages 55
and older experience mental health
concerns, federal data show. And
depression, by far the most common
condition, is treatable in 80 percent
of cases.
But the majority of older
Americans do not receive the mental
health services they need, accord-
ing to the American Psychological
Association. Less than 3 percent
of adults over age 55 see a mental
health professional.
Experts say this must change.
"We have to do more," said
Richard Birkel, senior vice president
at the National Council on Aging.
"Depression is not just a separate
condition. It's the key to treating
so many other health conditions.
Depression will, in fact, short-circuit
other treatments. You've got to tackle
it to really get the patient's coopera-
tion and engagement in working on
other health conditions."
With Americans ages 65 and up
accounting for 13 percent of the
population and estimated to grow
to 19 percent by 2030, according
to the Health and Human Services'
Administration on Aging, a signifi-
cant number of lives are affected by
the mental health of older people.
We talked to health care profes-
sionals about how and why our
approach should evolve.
The risks: At its most severe,
depression is a major risk factor for
suicide. The elderly have a slightly
higher suicide rate (14.22 of every
100,000 people) than the general
population (11.16 per 100,000),
according to the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, and men 65
and older die from suicide at more
than twice the national rate.
"Depression is not simple sadness,"
said Birkel, who has also served as
the executive director of the National
Alliance on Mental Illness. "It's a very
serious illness."
And its effects are many. Even
mild depression lowers a person's
immunity and can compromise the
body's fight against infections and
cancers, according to the American
Psychological Association.
"Depression is a co-traveler with
lots of other health conditions,"
Birkel said. "The guidelines now for
treating diabetes urge physicians to
test for depression. Same with heart
disease, hearing loss, eyesight loss.
"You have to get them out of that
cycle of feeling defeated, feeling like
they have no energy and can't take
care of themselves."

grew up in a generation taught to
tough it out and suck it up," said
Dolores Gallagher-Thompson,
associate professor at the Stanford
University school of medicine and
director of the school's Older Adult
and Family Research and Resource
Center. "It was believed that one
should be able to handle one's own
problems. Or if you needed help, you
would go to family or friends or a
clergy member."
Sadness and anxiety, Birkel said,
are often viewed as personal failures
by older adults.
"Today's seniors grew up in a soci-
ety where mental health issues were
not freely discussed, and there was
great shame associated with mental
illness," he said.
Early impressions of mental health
treatments only added to the stigma.
"The availability of psychotherapy
and other mental health services
was not great before the 1960s, when
President Kennedy formed a series
of federally funded mental health
centers," Gallagher-Thompson said.
"Prior to that, the average person
couldn't pay for private psychothera-
py, and the treatments were extreme-
ly long and severe."
"Since then we've developed a
number of evidence-based models
and approaches to psychotherapy,
many of which are relatively short
term," she continues. "You don't have
to sign up for three or four years of
treatment. Often you're looking at
10 to 20 sessions, very focused on a
particular problem."

Alzheimer's Association adds new support groups


An individual doesn't live with
Alzheimer's disease an entire
family does.
That is the synopsis Linda Howard,
program specialist for the Alzheimer's
Association, Florida Gulf Coast
Chapter, gives the impact of the
"The family faces it on a whole,"
Howard said. "A lot of times, we have
a couple down here, and the kids live
up north. When this diagnosis comes
down, we often get phone calls from
the adult children asking what to do,
what to expect. And a lot of times,
ultimately, the family all moves to one
location, either down here or back up
north, to help take care of the person
with Alzheimer's."
According to the Alzheimer's
Association, Alzheimer's disease
is "a type of dementia that causes
problems with memory, thinking and
behavior. Symptoms usually develop
slowly and get worse over time,
becoming severe enough to interfere
with daily tasks." The Association
said it is the most common form of

dementia it is estimated to be the
cause of 50 to 80 percent of dementia
Howard said in 2012, more
than 8,400 people diagnosed with
Alzheimer's living in Charlotte County.
In the 17 counties the Gulf Coast
chapter covers which includes
Charlotte, Lee, DeSoto and Sarasota
counties there are an estimated
172,229 diagnosed Alzheimer's cases.
That is higher than the national
average, Howard said.
Because of the need, the Gulf Coast
chapter has recently added two new
times and locations to its support
group meetings. DeSoto County
residents can now meet at 11 a.m.
on the first Wednesday of the month
at the DeSoto County Public Library,
125 N. Hillsborough Ave., Arcadia.
Port Charlotte also has a new meet-
ing. Charlotte County residents can
meet at 10 a.m., the second Friday
of every month at Charlotte Harbor
Healthcare, 4000 Kings Highway. The
meetings and all services of the
Alzheimer's Association are free
and open to patients, family members
and caregivers.
Howard said the Alzheimer's

*Royal Palm Retirement Center, 2500 Aaron St., Port Charlotte, meets at 10 a.m. on the fourth
Tuesday of the month.
*South Port Square (Harbor Terrace), 23033 Westchester Blvd., Port Charlotte, meets at 3 p.m. on
the third Tuesday of the month.
*Saint Maximilian Kolbe Catholic Church, 1441 Spear St., Port Charlotte, meets at 2:30 p.m. on the
fourth Thursday of the month.
*Port Charlotte United Methodist Church, 21075 Quesada Ave., Port Charlotte, meets at 3 p.m. on
the third Thursday of the month.
*Charlotte Harbor Healthcare, 4000 Kings Highway, Port Charlotte, meets at 10 a.m. on the second
Friday of the month.
*Life Care Center, 450 Shreve St., Punta Gorda, meets at 3 p.m. on the third Monday of the month.
*Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association, 2001 Shreve St., Punta Gorda, meets at 3 p.m. on the second
Tuesday of the month.
*DeSoto County Public Library, 125 N. Hillsborough Ave., Arcadia meets at 11 a.m. on the first
Wednesday of the month.
The support group meetings are free and open to patients, caregivers, family members and anyone
who wants to learn more about the disease. For more information, call 800-272-3900 or 941-235-
7470, or visit

Association's free services include
evaluations, educational programs
and respite care, which allows care-
givers to get away for a few hours
- whether it's to run errands, go to
the grocery store or just get a cup of
coffee without having to worry about
their loved one.

"We concentrate a lot on the
caregivers," Howard said. "It takes a
tremendous toll. Caregivers pass away
before the patient about 66 percent
of the time. When you're a caregiver
around the clock, you need to have
support. Sometimes, it's just as simple
as having someone to talk to."

Keeping holidays joyful for families affected by Alzheimer's


A time of festivities and celebra-
tion, the holidays pose special chal-
lenges for people with Alzheimer's
disease and those who are caring for
When planning family events,
"focus on what is safe, manageable
and meaningful to that person," said
Ashley Magner, regional care consul-
tant with the Minnesota and North
Dakota chapter of the Alzheimer's
"If you've always had Christmas at
Grandma's place, how to do change
tradition?" she said. "You can make
plans but change them if needed"
in response to the needs of a person
with Alzheimer's.
Adjust expectations, and avoid
taking on too much, she said. "It can
wear on you and the person you care
Don't plan to include the person in
a full day of activities, she cautioned.
"Everything in moderation."

B. S


She mentioned a caregiver who
noticed the spouse would get antsy
after 30 or 40 minutes, "looking
around like she should be doing
something," because she was used
to a strict schedule in her residential
care facility.
"If the person you're caring for
doesn't do well in large groups or
is leery of crowds, stay away from
them," she said.
Magner recommended these tips
for caregivers and others as the
holidays approach:
*If you're planning to visit a person
with Alzheimer's, limit the group to
two or three people at a time; a larger
group, in one visit, can be over-
whelming and confusing.
*Inform others who don't see the
person regularly about predictable
*At holiday events, stick to the per-
son's mealtime and sleeping routine
as much as possible, no matter where
you're at.
*Appoint a "holiday partner" to
look after the person's needs.

*Designate a quiet place where the
person can retreat to if things get
*If the person can no longer leave
the care facility, consider celebrating
there and bringing holiday decora-
tions in, as space allows.
*Watch for signs of physical or
emotional stress.
"There's a lot of grief at this time
of year" for those dealing with
Alzheimer's disease, she said. People
in the early stages of the disease,
who realize they have it, may become
more agitated or irritable or experi-
ence changes in eating and sleeping
habits," Manger said. "If crying is
excessive, or if anxiety makes the
person more paranoid or suspicious,
it may be worth bringing that up with
the doctor."
Magner advises caregivers to take
care of themselves, offering these
*Ask for help.
*Shop for gifts online or through
catalogs to limit your stress.
*Give yourself permission to say

"no" to requests or invitations.
*Consider counseling or joining a
support group.
For people coping with Alzheimer's
in their families, "things are differ-
ent," Magner said. "The holiday isn't
the same as it was, but that doesn't
mean it's necessarily bad."

Researchers: New transplant method may help thousands of kidney failure patients


Kidney failure patients in the not-
too-distant future may have a new
option that sidesteps the current organ
shortage, lengthy wait and potential
rejection: Grow your own.
University of Florida researchers
are using a pig kidney as a "scaffold"
in which they are building a human
version by injecting it with stem cells
grown from the patient. Those cells
will "take over" the pig kidney, allowing
it to be transplanted into humans.
If successful, the researchers say,
the process could reduce the wait for
a kidney from years to several months
and save tens of thousands of lives
"It is so exciting, this whole new
therapeutic path," said Dr. Edward
Ross, a nephrologist and professor
of medicine at UF Health. Ross is
collaborating on the project with Chris
Batich, a professor of materials science
and engineering and biomedical
engineering at UE
The challenge that prompted them

and their team into action is daunt-
ing. More than 106,000 people in the
United States await kidney transplants,
according to data from the Organ
Procurement and Transplantation
Network. But because so few kidneys
are available, fewer than 17,000 receive
transplants each year and nearly
500,000 undergo chronic dialysis
Batich and Ross want to change that,
and they say the process is relatively
simple in theory.
Step one is to take a kidney failure
patient's skin cells and turn them back
to stem cells by adding certain chemi-
cals and growth factors.
Step two is to wash the pig kidney
of all of its cells, a process called
decellularization. Ross said this is a
crucial step and must be done care-
fully to avoid harming the structure
of the organ, or washing away the
chemical signals that cause the cells to

Study: Protein may help assess concussions


Most people who get a concussion
seem to regain normal brain func-
tion within a month or two at most.
But doctors have no way to predict
which patients are in that group and
which will suffer long-term cognitive
A team from the University of
Pennsylvania and Baylor College of
Medicine seeks to solve that riddle
with a simple blood test.
In a new study in the journal
Frontiers in Neurology, the team
reported that a protein called SNTF
is a promising indicator of which
patients with concussions are likely to
experience chronic brain deficits.
Researchers tested the brain
processing speed of 13 concussed
patients soon after their injury and
also measured the amount of SNTF
in their blood. The cognitive test was
administered again three months
Among five patients with elevated
levels of the protein, none showed
improvements in processing speed
three months later. But in six of eight
patients in whom the protein was
not detected just after injury, scores
on the brain test did improve three
months later.
The researchers also reported that
patients with elevated levels of the
protein were more likely to have
abnormal brain scans. The patients

underwent a special kind of MRI.
Lead author Robert Siman, a
neurosurgery professor at Penn's
Perelman School of Medicine, warned
that while the findings were statisti-
cally significant, the study was small
and needs follow-up. "We don't have a
way to identify at an early and poten-
tially treatable stage those concussed
individuals who are not going to get
better," he said.
The study also included a set of
13 patients with a broken bone or
other orthopedic injury. Levels of the
protein were elevated in the blood
of three of those patients, suggest-
ing that they may have suffered an
undiagnosed concussion, said study
author and Penn professor Douglas H.
"It highlights the important thing,
that concussion is really poorly
diagnosed and defined," said Smith,
director of Penn's Center for Brain
Injury and Repair.
When someone goes to the ER with
symptoms of a concussion but no
internal bleeding, they are examined
and sent home. It is up to the patient
and family to follow up with a doctor.
If the Penn-Baylor blood test holds
up in larger studies, it would help
doctors determine who needs follow-
up care, Smith said. "It would be
crucially important to weed out those
who really need the call-back."
Such a test also would help re-
searchers test drugs and other thera-
pies for concussions, he said. Now it is

"Chronic ulceration is very often due to
venous disease. There is no reason to suffer.
Modern techniques can now treat this problem
and resolve these debilitating ulcers."
-Dr. Joyce

"Dear Dr. Joyce, More than 30 years ago trauma to my left
leg damaged a number of my veins and that portion of my
leg turned purple. Doctors told me then that I probably
would have problems when I got older. 30 years later I began
to have open wounds that would not heal-treatments at
Wound Care including epigrafts helped but new wounds
would appear.
Your thorough explanation of what could be accomplished
with laser surgery to ablate those veins that were no longer
functional convinced me to give this a try. I watched
carefully and was duly impressed with your expertise at laser
surgery and now-nine months later-am eternally thankful
that my wounds have not returned.
Now I don't just take care of my pool I can swim in it!"


Relief begins with accurate
diagnosis and treatments
tailored to your unique needs.
treatment at JVAI combines state-of-the-art technology and
a specialized diagnostic examination developed by Dr. Joyce
to establish treatments specific to your condition.

For some, physical rehab on knee is enough to treat ACL tear


Dear Mayo Clinic: I am 60 years
old and tore myACL. Should I have
surgery to fix it, or is it OK to just let
it heal on its own?
No matter what your age, the
decision about how best to treat an
injured anterior cruciate ligament,
or ACL, should be based on the type
of activity you'd like to be able to do
after treatment, as well as the stability
of your knee overall.
Ligaments are strong bands of tis-
sue that connect one bone to another.
Your ACL is one of two ligaments that
cross in the middle of the knee that
connect your thighbone, or femur, to
your shinbone, or tibia. The ACL also
helps to keep your knee joint stable.
When the ACL is torn, it often results
in knee pain and swelling. After an
ACL injury, some people also have

instability in the knee or a feeling that
the knee is "giving way" when they
attempt to turn quickly or pivot on it.
The purpose of treatment for an
ACL injury is to reduce the pain and
swelling, restore normal knee move-
ment, strengthen the muscles around
the joint, and allow return to full
activity. For some people, that can be
achieved with physical rehabilitation
Rehabilitation usually involves
doing exercises to regain full knee
motion, as well as muscle-strength-
ening and stability exercises. You may
need to use a knee brace for certain
activities. Rehabilitation without
surgery usually works best for people
who have a less active lifestyle and
whose knee stability steadily improves
with rehabilitation.
If you want to participate in activ-
ities such as skiing, singles tennis, hik-
ing on uneven terrain, or other sports

that require pivoting, cutting, jumping
or twisting, then surgery followed
by rehabilitation is more likely to be
necessary to fix the ACL and ensure
stability in your knee. Also, if your
knee continues to give way even after
you have gone through rehabilitation,
then you may require surgery to
improve long-term knee stability.
A torn ACL can't be sewn back
together. Instead, during surgery the
ligament is replaced with a piece of
tissue called a graft. That graft may be
a tendon or ligament from another
part of your knee or leg. Or, a graft
from a deceased donor may be an
option. If you decide to have surgery,
talk to your surgeon about which
choice is best for you.
If you're in good health, age typi-
cally is not a factor in whether or not
to have ACL surgery. Research has
shown that with this surgery, older
patients can achieve results similar

to those in youngei patientt, witliout
a significant increase in tie i dik ,4

Spectrum of tests needed to diagnose multiple sclerosis


Dear Mayo Clinic: My sister's
doctor recently told her he suspects
she may have MS, but she hasn't
been definitively diagnosed with the
disease. Isn't there a test that can
tell if someone has MS? What are
the common symptoms? Are some
people at higher risk for getting MS
than others?
Unfortunately, no one specific test
can diagnose multiple sclerosis, or
MS. Instead, the disease is diagnosed
using a combination of exams and
tests to identify MS and to rule out
other conditions that may have
similar signs and symptoms.
MS is a central nervous system dis-
ease. Your body's nervous system can
be divided into two categories: central
and peripheral. The central nervous
system includes your brain, your
spinal cord and your optic nerve. The
peripheral nervous system includes
all the nerves outside your central
nervous system. MS affects the central
nervous system. It does not affect the
peripheral nervous system.
It's not exactly clear what causes
this disease. But it appears that in
people who have MS, the body's im-
mune system attacks and strips away
the fatty substance that coats and

protects the nerve fibers. When this
substance, called myelin, is destroyed
and the nerve fiber is exposed, the
nerve cannot work correctly.
In general, MS is more common
in people of northwestern European
descent. Women are much more
likely than men to get MS; the ratio
of women to men affected by MS is
about 3 to 1. Some research suggests
exposure to Epstein-Barr virus, the
virus that causes mononucleosis,
raises a persons risk for MS, as well.
The symptoms caused by MS
depend on where the damaged nerves
are located. For example, if the optic
nerve is affected that's the bundle
of nerve fibers that carry information
from your eye to your brain it may
cause blurred vision. Other common
symptoms include numbness or
weakness in an arm or leg, tingling
or pain in one part of the body, lack
of coordination, slurred speech and
dizziness. For many people with MS,
particularly in the early stages of the
disease, symptoms are not consistent.
They appear for some time, and then
go away for a period of time.
Diagnosing MS can be challenging
because its symptoms are similar
to those of other nervous system
diseases. In addition, no specific
marker for MS has been identified.
That means diagnosis is based on the

combination of a physical exam, a
person's medical history and symp-
toms, and a variety of tests.
Tests to diagnose MS may include
blood tests and a spinal tap. These
tests allow doctors to rule out other
conditions, such as a viral infection
or other inflammatory diseases.
Magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI,
also is needed in helping to identify
MRI can show lesions that appear to
be due to myelin loss. However, these
types of lesions also can be caused
by other conditions, such as lupus,
migraine headaches and diabetes. So
the presence of these lesions alone
cannot be considered definitive proof
of multiple sclerosis.
Another test used to diagnose MS

Re-landscape your holiday dinner plate


Festive and scrumptious vegetable
dishes greatly enhance holiday meals
and help prevent belt-busting weight

fully prepared, they take up "parking
space" in our tummies limiting
consumption of calorie-rich meat and
A fruitless attempt to resuscitate
lifeless canned or previously cooked/
frozen veggies often leads to cam-
ouflaging them with vats of cream,
butter, and maple syrup, mountains
of bacon, or other health hazards -
don't try this at home! Fresh, inex-
pensive, and wholesome produce can
be easily transformed into delightful
complements to the richer food.
Briefly steaming, sauteing or cook-
ing them in a small amount of olive
oil and seasoning, in a covered pan,
are the best and quickest methods.
Such techniques preserve the vege-
tables' nutrients, flavor, texture and
color, as well as minimize work.
Include several types of greens in
your raw vegetable salad, such as
Romaine lettuce, spinach, arugula,
and Belgian endive. Adding colors and
increasing nutrition can be achieved
with sliced red onion, grated or sliced
radishes or carrots, fresh herbs,
artichoke hearts, olives, a chopped
tomato, a sliced cucumber and mush-
rooms, pieces of dried fruit, roasted
nuts or seeds, or sectioned citrus fruit.
Garnishing with crumbled feta or blue

cheese can also
lend variety and
flavor. "..

Don't let the "Big Bird," ham and
the cookie-and-pie monster steal

healthy holidays!
For a larger group, double or triple
the recipes below and adjust flavors.
Serves 4
4 tablespoons lemon juice
6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
3 teaspoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons honey

4 teaspoons ginger root, peeled,
finely grated
16 cups mixed salad greens,
2 navel oranges
1/2 cup chopped, roasted walnuts
1/2 cup dried cranberries
In a large bowl, make the dressing.
To peel and section an orange: With
a sharp knife cut the top and bottom
exposing the juicy flesh. Continue
to peel the orange cutting into its
flesh. Holding it over the salad bowl
(to catch the juice), cut between
segments and lift them free. Remove
seeds. Add orange segments to dress-
ing. Gently mix in greens. Place evenly
divided on salad plates. Top each
serving with the nuts and cranberries.
NOTE: To roast nuts, place them
in a DRY skillet at medium-low heat
for 8-10 minutes, stirring frequently
until fragrant. When done, transfer
to a plate, cool completely and store
in air-tight container. Salad dressing
and roasted nuts can be prepared in
Serves 4
4 large sweet potatoes, scrubbed
3 small apples (not Granny Smith),
cored, sliced
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons (packed) fresh ginger
root, peeled, finely grated
4 tablespoons cooking olive oil

1/3 cup orange juice
Remove blemishes and eyes from
potatoes. Cut into 1 inch pieces
and steam for 7 minutes. Add sliced
apples on top: do not mix. Steam
for 10 more minutes until potatoes
are tender, but not mushy. Carefully
transfer potatoes and apples into an
oven-proof dish. Add all other ingre-
dients, mixing gently. Warm up before
serving, if desired.
Serves 4
1 pound green beans
1 small cooking onion, thinly sliced
1/3 cup olive oil
10 fresh mushrooms, washed, dried,
thinly sliced
1 tablespoon oregano
Salt and pepper
Juice of 1 lemon
Wash beans, trim stems and cut the
beans into 1-inch pieces. Steam 7-10
minutes or until tender-crisp. Drain.
Meanwhile, in a covered skillet heat
oil, cook onion, stirring occasionally
until translucent, about 12 minutes.
Add mushrooms, oregano, salt and
pepper. Cook until mushrooms are
tender-firm, stirring occasionally. Add
lemon juice, green beans and cook 2
more minutes.

We could say that stress is a source

Buying health insurance on individual marketplace


A look at questions related to
recent health-care news. Today's
focus: people who buy insurance on
the individual market.
Q. I have a private health insur-
ance plan, not through my employer.
How will the Affordable Care Act
affect me?
A. You could be affected in a big
Starting Jan. 1, insurance compa-
nies can no longer reject you because
you have a pre-existing condition,
or charge you more because you
are a woman. You might be able to
get a more comprehensive plan and
get financial assistance to pay your
But there is bad news for some
people. A number of Americans who
like their private health plans have
learned in recent months that their
policies are being terminated. The
reason is that the old plans do not
comply with new rules under the
health care law. And some people will
find that their new plans are more
Q. I'm one of those people whose
plans are being terminated. But
didn't President Barack Obama fix
that problem?
A. Sort of. Last month, the presi-
dent did take action to make amends
for his broken promise that people

would be able to keep it. He decided
that insurance companies would be
able to extend policies for an extra
But because insurance is regulated
by the states and not the federal
government, it is up to state insur-
ance commissioners and insurers,
who have to figure out what state law
allows them to do and how it could
affect premiums for everyone in 2015
and 2016. Most haven't decided yet
what to do.
Q. If I extend my plan under the
president's fix, can I keep it forever?
A. No. The best scenario you can
hope for is to keep your plan until its
annual expiration date, and then re-
new it for one more year. The longest
you can keep it is through September
You will eventually have to switch
to a new plan that complies with the
health-care law.
Q. Is there any reason I should not
take that option if it is offered to me?

A. It may turn out that you can get
a more robust plan at a lower cost on
the health insurance marketplace,
depending on your age and income
and other factors.
There is also a catch. At some
point, you will have to switch
to a plan that complies with the
Affordable Care Act.
If you switch mid-year, you might
have to start paying toward your
annual deductible again. It's one
factor to think about as you consider
your options.
Q. Isn't the website you referenced
A. You're probably thinking of, the main federal
health insurance portal for 36 states,
which has been glitchy to say the
least. Other states have their own
portals, with some working better
than others.
It's not totally broken, and accord-
ing to the Obama administration,
it should be working now for the
majority of Americans. But for 20
percent of you, it might not go so
Q. My insurance is getting can-
celed at the end of the year. What
can I do to ensure that I won't have a
lapse in my coverage?
A. You're in a tough spot, no doubt
about it, and you should probably
get on that website to check out your
options. You have until Dec. 23 to
sign up for a plan that is guaranteed
to kick in Jan. 1.
If you have tried the marketplace
with no success, you can try the gov-
ernment hotline, 800-318-2596, or try
getting help from a local insurance
agent or broker.
You can try to find a "navigator,"
the health care law's official helpers,
whose names should be listed on
the website. You can also buy a plan
directly from a health insurance
You might try to access the website
on off-peak hours, or try a different
browser techniques that have
helped some people get through the
rough patches.
Q. My plan is not being terminat-
ed. Does that mean I don't have to
worry about this whole thing?
A. Yes for now. It could be that
you will get a letter down the road
asking you to switch plans because
of the health care law. It is a good
idea to get on the health insurance
marketplace in your state to look at
your options.

Peace River Regional earns chest pain center accreditation

Peace River Regional Medical
Center, Port Charlotte, received full
accreditation with PCI from the
Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care
(SCPC) on Nov. 20.
"This accreditation is validation
of the dedication and commitment
the staff at Peace River demonstrate
every day in caring for our patients
with heart problems," said Richard
H. Satcher, market chief executive
Heart attacks are the leading cause
of death in the United States, with
600,000 people dying annually of
heart disease. More than 5 million
Americans visit hospitals each year
with chest pain.
SCPC's goal is to significantly
reduce the mortality rate of these
patients by teaching the public to
recognize and react to the early
symptoms of a possible heart attack,
reduce the time that it takes to receive
treatment, and increase the accuracy
and effectiveness of treatment.
The accredited chest pain center's
protocol-driven and systematic ap-
proach to patient management allows
physicians to reduce time to treat-
ment during the critical early stages

Small toy magnets growing danger to teens and tots


Christin Rivas, 14, was fascinated
by the small, round toy magnets that
you can sculpt into shapes and use to
perform magic tricks.
Put a pen on a desk, hold a magnet
underneath and watch the pen move
across the desktop.
While playing with a couple of
these rare-earth magnets at her
Satellite Beach, Fla., middle school,
Christin needed both hands to grab
something, so she decided to hold the
mini-magnets in her mouth. Someone
made her laugh, and ... gulp. She
swallowed the magnets.
Five days later, Christin was at
Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children
in Orlando, Fla., having the magnets
surgically removed from her intes-
tines, along with a small section of her
colon and her appendix.
Labels warning that magnets
are harmful if swallowed have not
stopped an increasing number of kids
from putting them in their mouths
or noses and then getting them stuck
in their bodies, where they can cause
serious harm.
The groups that get into the most
trouble are children age 5 and young-
er, and tweens and teens, who use the
magnets to mimic tongue, lip, cheek
or nose piercings.
"Kids swallow a lot of objects," said
Dr. Tejas Mehta, a pediatric gastro-
enterologist at Arnold Palmer who
treated Rivas, "but from a GI perspec-
tive, magnets cause more damage
than anything else."
That risks soars when more than
one magnet goes down.
Magnets will work so hard to find
each other that their force can cause
intestines to twist and become
blocked. The pull can also cause ero-
sion, then ulceration, and eventually
the intestine can perforate, causing



trial examining whether varespladib
could prevent future heart-related
complications among patients hos-
pitalized with symptoms of a sudden
decrease in blood flow to the heart.
Researchers studied more than
5,000 patients, 40 years and older

infection, Mehta said.
Four out of five kids who swallow
multiple magnets will need an inva-
sive procedure, such as an endoscopy
or surgery, said Mehta, who has heard
of kids swallowing magnets and
needing massive bowel resections.
From 2002 to 2011 magnet-relat-
ed emergency-room visits among
Americans younger than 21 increased
fivefold, according to a recent study
published in the Annals of Emergency
During that 10-year period, 22,500
magnet injuries were reported.
Usually the kids swallowed the
magnets, but about one-fourth put
the magnets up their nose, said Julie
Brown, an emergency-room doctor
at the University of Washington, in
Seattle, and lead author of the study.
The magnets break loose and go in,
not out.
Based on data Brown has seen since
then, the problem shows no sign of
"There is something very tempting
about them," Brown said. "When
playing with this fidgety toy, you want
to put it in your mouth. You want to
try to separate the magnets with your
To toddlers, they look just like the
silver-ball candies you put on cup-
cakes, she said.
Buckyballs, a set of 216 magnets
that consumers can manipulate into
sculptures and chain jewelry, is one
culprit. Last year, the Consumer
Product Safety Commission asked
retailers and makers of Buckyballs
and Zen Magnets, a similar toy, to
stop selling them.
But you can still find them online,
said Brown, who has researched the
issue and claims more than 3 million
sets of the magnet sets have been
sold. At 216 magnets per set, that's
600 million in circulation.

with symptoms of decreased blood
flow to the heart at 362 sites in 17
countries in May 2010-March 2012. At
the study's early termination in March
2012, a larger percentage of patients
in the varespladib group had heart
attacks, other heart complication, or
died, than those in the placebo group.
Previous laboratory studies had re-
vealed that varespladib inhibits tissue
inflammation possibly preventing
heart events related to a decrease in

are equally worrisome, she said, citing
metallic bulletin boards that have lit-
tle magnet pins, refrigerator magnets
that look like candies or coffee beans
(begging to be tasted) and fishing
games that involve a magnet on a rod.
Many emergency-room physicians
don't know how serious the problem
can be. When Barbara Rivas took her
daughter to the emergency room at
Wuesthoff Medical Center, the doctor
ordered an X-ray, then sent Christin
and her mother home and said the
magnets would pass.
That advice didn't set well with
Rivas, who did some online research.
"That's when I hit the panic but-
ton," she said.

But the theory did not hold up in the

New stroke prevention drug
A new drug, edoxaban, might be
as safe and effective as warfarin for
stroke prevention in patients with
atrial fibrillation.
Not yet available in the United
States. the drug was as effective in
preventing strokes and safer than the
blood-thinner, warfarin, in patients
with atrial fibrillation, according to a
late-breaking clinical trial.
The trial included more than 21,000
atrial fibrillation patients in 46 coun-
tries in 1,400 hospitals. Edoxaban
performed as well as warfarin in
preventing strokes, and also signifi-
cantly reduced the risk of bleeding
and cardiovascular disease-related
death. Major bleeding was 20 percent
lower in those taking a high dose of

After going to another ER, she was
referred to Arnold Palmer, where
doctors admitted Christin and tracked
her magnets' path by X-ray.
Normally, food or foreign objects
take six to eight hours to go from
entry to exit, Mehta said. When the
magnets Christin swallowed stalled
at the neck of the large colon for 24
hours, doctors decided to operate.
Anyone who has surgery on the
small bowel runs a 10 percent chance
of developing a bowel obstruction
later in life, Brown said.
"Don't even think about touching
them or buying them," Christin said.
"I messed up my intestines. I worry
about that down the road."

edoxaban and 53 percent lower in
those taking a lose dose. Compared
with warfarin, the high dose of edox-
aban was associated with a 14 percent
reduction in cardiovascular death;
the low dose was associated with a 15
percent reduction.
Instead of depleting the body's
clotting proteins like warfarin does,
edoxaban works to prevent clots.
Currently, warfarin is the most
common treatment for atrial fibrilla-
tion, an irregular heartbeat that can
increase the risk for stroke.
However, before the new drug can
be approved here, researchers must
study the side effects, which patient
populations may benefit most, devel-
op standards for monitoring dosing
and determine how best to quickly
reverse its effects if needed in an
emergency. The drug is only approved
for use in Japan in patients undergo-
ing orthopedic surgery who are at risk
for blood clots in the legs.

Elaine Stritch is the only person on the

and walkers navigating the lot are
vulnerable to theft, and unattended
vehicles loaded with packages are often
open invitations for break-ins. Consumer
Reports offers this advice from law
enforcement officials who patrol the
country's busiest malls on how to reduce
your chances of becoming a victim:
Be choosy where you park. Sure,
that isn't always easy. But it could be
worth driving around a little to find
a spot in a populated area instead
of settling on one in a dark, remote
location, especially if you are alone. "Park
in a well-lit area because criminals hate
light; they don't want to be identified,"
says Officer Heidi Miller of Bloomington,



Minn., home of the Mall of America.
Lock and stow. Many parking lot
thefts occur because drivers neglect
to perform the simplest task: locking
the car and closing the windows. Don't
allow your car to bean easy target
for thieves. Hide valuables such as
GPS devices, cellphones, laptops and
iPods. If your GPS is mounted to your
windshield, pull it off and try to clean
off the suction marks so that thieves
don't break into the car looking for
it. "Don't even leave the GPS cable,"
Miller says, because criminals think
you're simply putting the device
away in your glove box or center
console. In addition, if you have an
aftermarket stereo with a removable
faceplate, Miller suggests removing

the face and taking it with you.
Stay focused. "People walking
through the parking lot don't pay as
much attention as they used to," says
Capt. Robert Guidetti of the Paramus,
N.J., Police Department. Instead they
are checking email or making calls.
Look to your front, side and rear when
walking to and from a store. Being
aware of your surroundings lessens
your chances of becoming a victim or
getting struck by a car, Guidetti says.
Assume you're watched. Criminals
watch for shoppers who put purchases
in their car or trunk, then walk back
into the store. Once you're gone, it can
take only moments to break in and
grab items. If you need to stow pack-
ages while shopping, reparkyourcarin
a different location, away from anyone
who could have been observing, says
Detective Bob Welsome of the New York
City Police Department. Other options
are to find out whether the mall has
storage lockers available or ask security

to hold your packages until you're ready
to leave.
Don't dally. "Walk like you have a
purpose. Don't wander, even if you don't
know where your car is," says Officer
Harry Nuskey of the Upper Merion
Township, Pa., Police Department, near
the popular Mall of Prussia. Have your
car key in hand before you leave the
store. It can also act as a weapon if nec-
essary, Guidetti says. Once in your car,
lock the doors immediately and drive
off. Don't sit and do other things. That
will lessen the chance of you becoming
a target.
Beware of stranger danger. If you
are approached or chased, Consumer
Reports recommends yelling or scream-
ing to get attention or going back to
the store and alerting security. If you are
followed while driving, go to an open
gas station or a populated area with
plenty of light, Miller says. "Your best
defense is a well-charged cellphone. Get
on the phone and call 91 1."

New releases from

R. Kelly, Neil Young

s the year winds
down, many major
labels start to taper
off on releases, so in the
next few weeks, I will be
writing about new holiday
music and then of course,
my year-end "Best Of" lists.
Oh, how I love them. It's
the time I can finally give
you my opinion, and since
many of my loyal readers
and customers already
think that I am a pretty
opinionated guy, it's time
to prove them right!
But for the week of
Dec. 10, there still are a
few releases to mull over.
First is a new release
by R. Kelly called Black
Robert Sylvester Kelly
was born Jan. 8, 1967
on the South Side of
Chicago, III. He and his
three siblings were raised
by his mother and he
was introduced to music
through the church choir.
By the age of 8 he was al-
ready performing in front
of a live audience. It was
a middle-school music
teacher who convinced
him to take part in a tal-
ent show that cemented
his love for performing.
In 1991, he got his first
break when he partic-
ipated on a television
show called "Big Break."
He won first place. Also
that year, he teamed
up with a group called
Public Announcement
and early the following
year released their debut
CD called Born into the
90's. After one year, Kelly
decided to go solo and
released 12 Play. Since
that time R. Kelly has
become one of the best-
selling artists in the U.S.
and the most successful
selling R&B artist in the
last 25 years.
In the beginning, most
of his songs were, well
... of a sexually explicit
nature. Songs like "Bump
N Grind,""l'm a Flirt"and
"Your Body's Callin'."Then,
during the late 1990s,

he turned more pop and
even a little spiritual.
Black Panties is his 12th
studio CD and finds him
returning to the more
sexually suggestive ways.
Hence the title, so parents
beware, after reading
some of the song names,
maybe the clean version
for the kids and the
other version for the older
people. Hey, It's just my
Next we have kind of a
new release by Neil Young
called Live at the Cellar
Neil Percival Young
was born Nov. 12, 1945,
in Toronto, Canada. After
his parents divorced, he
and his mother moved
to Winnipeg, Manitoba,
while his father and older
brother Bob remained
in Toronto. It was at
this time in his life Neil
became interested in
popular music. He would
listen to the radio at
nights as he has stated
"there was nothing else
to do." He started playing
music on a plastic ukulele
and eventually moved to
guitar. He is a self-taught
musician. I was surprised
to see that one of his first
groups was with fellow
Canadian Rick James
("Super Freak"). I have
such a hard time picturing
them together in a band,
which by the way was
called Mynah Birds.
Young left Canada and
relocated to Los Angeles,
Calif., in 1966. Stephen
Stills and Bruce Palmer had
worked with Young while
in Canada in different
bands and thought the
United States was "where
we have a chance of being
noticed'"Once they were
settled in, they teamed
up with Richie Furay
and Dewey Martin and
formed Buffalo Springfield.
Success was theirs, but
other problems arose, and
tensions between band
members and the deporta-
tion of Palmer made them


disband. Young chose to
pursue a solo career. By
1968 he released his debut
CD and since that time has
released 35 studio albums.
Neil Young's music is
hard to categorize. He tries
his hand at pretty much
every style of music, like
folk, country, bluegrass,
pop, electronic, swing and
rock. He even has reached
the younger audiences
by being considered the
"Godfather of Grunge
Rock." He has been
part of so many bands
throughout his years, he
helped form Crazy Horse
(his hard rock band) and
was a member of Crosby,
Stills, Nash &Young. He
has been inducted into
the Rock and Roll Hall
of Fame twice, once as a
solo artist and the other
as a member of Buffalo
Springfield. His catalog of
music compares only to
Bob Dylan.
"Live at the Cellar Door"
is rare live show recorded
in 1970 at The Cellar Door
Club in Washington, D.C.,
and includes a stellar
piano version of his hit
"Cinnamon Girl."
Other major releases
this week are from 7
Days of Funk, Jellyfish,
Shelby Lynne, Velvet
Underground (Reissue),
Bone Thugs N Harmony,
E-40, Krystal Keith
(Yes, Toby's daughter).
Independent releases are
from Crown the Empire,
Nightwish, Childish
Gambino and new country
artiest, Parmalee.
Keep rockin', folks!

Coca-Cola items the real thing

ears ago I met a tennis instructor
and his wife whose whole apart-
ment was decorated in Coca-Cola
items. He told me he drank over 100
Cokes a day when he was on the court
and his wife said she drank about 30-40
a day at her deskjob. I couldn't drink
that much water in a day. There must
have been a hundred Coke items dec-
orating bookcases, tables, floor areas
and walls.
Many Coke collectors are fanatical
about their hobby. One eBayer is selling
off his entire collection with an asking
price of $600,000. There is also a Coca-
Cola Rolex for sale.
I am new to this area of collecting
and am amazed at the variety of what's
available on eBay's 150,000 listings of
Coca-Cola items.
The easiest things to collect are
bottles. There are some very early ones
that were not done in the classic con-
toured shape, but in what is described
as the straight-sided bottle. There are
also what appear to be glass syrup
bottles with the Coke logo molded

into the glass.
Bottle colors varied from clear to am-
ethyst before the classic green became
the key color. Collecting foreign bottles
is part of what makes bottle collecting
so interesting.
And if you're collecting bottles you'll
need to collect some old wooden cases.
And as long as you're at it, go ahead
and add other cola makers' bottles.
Signs are very popular and can vary
in price from a few dollars to thou-
sands. Early porcelain signs are the
rare ones to search for, as are those
with neon lighting. We've all seen
stores with their outside sign showing
the store name flanked by Coca-Cola
logos. I believe these were given free
or at very low cost. The earliest Coke
signs were called tackers because they
were meant to be tacked to fences or
wooden fixtures outside a store. They
were printed on oilcloth or tin and
deteriorated fairly quickly, which makes
them rare.
Another major collectible area is
clocks. The first Coke clocks were made


in 1893 and were usually given away
to stores for promotional purposes.
Pre-electric clocks can bring big dollars.
The electrics came out in the 1930s and
were made in a wide variety of shapes
and sizes.
The Coca-Cola logo appears on but-
tons, marbles, glasses, spatulas, knives
and clothes along with hundreds of
other promotional items. For bars and
restaurants, there were serving trays
and coin trays at the register.
I've seen Coca-Cola seltzer bottles,
but rumor has it they are modern fakes.
You'll find wall mirrors and pocket
mirrors, coin holders and purses along

with postcards, magazine ads and
cardboard store displays. Postcards
are mainly prints or photos of bottling
plants all around the U.S., although
I'm sure you can find others like the
series with Popeye the Sailorman. There
is much more variety found in Coke
If you're already a Coke collector or
want to get into building a collection
you need to visit

Applebee's tablets at tables

2013, SLATE

Score one for the machines. This week,
Applebee's announced plans to install a
tablet at every table in its 1,860 restaurants
across the United States. Customers will be
able to use the devices to order food, pay the
bill and ignore their dining companions by
playing video games.
Chili's unveiled basically the same plan
three months ago. But that doesn't mean
Applebee's hasn't been plotting this move
for years. In fact Applebee's was the name
that came up when my former Slate col-
league Annie Lowrey first wrote about the
tablets-for-restaurants idea in April 2011. Her
story focused on Palo Alto-based startup E
La Carte, which is in fact Applebee's partner
on the just-announced deal. Chili's opted
for a rival vendor, Ziosk. Applebee's went
light on details in announcing the terms of
its deal, but here's how the economics of
the proposition looked when Lowrey wrote
about it in 2011:

suggests stocking up ahead
of time when your
non-holiday staples are on
the holiday season all of our
schedules are stretched and
dinnertime can sneak up on
you. But fast food is not the
only option. "During these
times, I rely on one of my
ingredient-flexible recipes
like AnyVeggie Soup, Four-
Step Chicken or Crisper
Drawer Pasta, because they
allow me to maximize use
of what we have on hand
(so nothing goes to waste),

The Presto E La Carte's tablet aspires to be
the food-services version of the airline check-
in kiosk or the ATM or the self-checkout at
your local pharmacy. It makes a person's job
a computer's job, and that cuts costs. Each
console goes for $ 100 per month. If a restau-
rant serves meals eight hours a day, seven
days a week, it works out to 42 cents per hour
per table making the Presto cheaper than
even the very cheapest waiter. Moreover, no
manager needs to train it replace it if it quits,
or offer it sick days. And it doesn't forget to
take off the cheese, walk off for 20 minutes,
or accidentally offend with small talk, either.
The restaurants deny that the tablets
represent an attempt to replace human
employees with computers. Applebee's is
saying that it won't change its staffing levels
when the devices come online next year. And
Chili's is optimistic that the tablets will pay for
themselves by bringing in extra revenue from
impulse orders and at-the-table gaming.
Not only will you not have to talkto a waiter
when you want to order something, you
won't have to talk to your kids, either!

time stress," d'Arabian said.
"Many people have told
me they loved the idea of
creating an entertaining
tradition, but they were
intimidated," d'Arabian said.
But it IS possible to serve a
simple and budget-friendly
menu and still make
guests feel special with
a little planning. Plus, dAra-
bian said, traditions provide
a great way for kids to get
involved, from helping with
decorations to preparing
dippers for a veggie platter

Chicken soup for gloomy weather

"Sow carrots in your gardens, and
humbly praise God for them as fora
singular and great blessing."
s it's the season for flu,
cough and colds I had
one for almost four weeks!
- so I decided to research soups
and food that would make me
feel better while recuperating. I
happened across several men-
tions of Dr. Irwin Ziment's on the
Internet. Dr. Ziment is a board
certified pulmonologist who cre-
ated what he cites as an amazing
soup for the flu season, although
it sounds good anytime. He's
quoted as saying his family has
been using it since 1989 and that
the soup had amazing recupera-
tive powers.
He has also mentioned
several foods to help with cancer
prevention. They're mostly
vegetables, as Dr. Ziment does
not advocate red meats. If you
must, he said, limit them in your
cooking, and cook in red wine.
I've included a list of some of
the foods that he states will aid
cancer prevention. (But where's
the chocolate?)
There must be something to
the diet as my Aunt Aida followed
his diet as well as the Hays diet,

Brighter picture on toy safety as recalls drop,

but consumer group says hazards remain


recalls for excessive lead
and other hazards are
down this year, but con-
sumer advocates warn
that potential dangers to
children remain on store
Several toys with
high lead levels or toys
that could cause young
children to choke were
found at major retailers
and discount stores in
the last few months,
the U.S. Public Interest
Research Group said
Tuesday. The consumer
safety group analyzed 50
toys for its annual report.
Violations were found
in fewer than a dozen,
including a Captain
America toy shield and
play jewelry.
PIRG said the Captain
America Soft Shield pur-
chased at Toys R Us had
29 times the legal limit
of lead. A package of toy
jewelry rings from Dollar
Tree tested positive for
lead twice the legal limit,
said the report.
Small parts that could
pose a choking risk were
found in six toys that the

group said did not carry
the necessary warning
labels for children. PIRG
said three toys were
too loud and exceeded
federal limits on decibels:
two Leap Frog phones
for toddlers the Chat
& Count phone and the
Lil'Phone Pal -and
the Fisher Price Laugh &
Learn remote.
The toy industry dis-
agreed with the report's
findings, saying that
toys are actually safer
than ever before and
questioning the testing
methods used by PIRG.
"We know that toys
are safe," said Joan
Lawrence, vice president
of standards and regu-
latory affairs at the Toy
Industry Association.
"In this country, by law,
toys are required to have
been tested and certified
before they are put on
store shelves."
Lawrence said PIRG
did not use a testing
laboratory accredited by
the federal agency that
oversees toy safety -
the Consumer Product
Safety Commission,
which approves labs for
manufacturers to use for
required testing on their

products. PIRG acknowl-
edged that the testing
lab it used was not CPSC
approved, but said it is
the same lab it has been
using for years.
CPSC spokeswoman
Patty Davis said com-
mission staff across the
country began picking
up samples of the toys
highlighted by PIRG over
the weekend and will
test them to see if further
action is needed.
Overall toy safety,
Davis said, has im-
proved in recent years.
Government figures
show 31 toy recalls in
fiscal year 2013, which
ended Sept. 30 none
involving lead. That's
down from 38 recalls in
2012; 50 in 2009 and 172
in 2008.
A 2008 law that set
stronger standards for
children's products,
including strict limits on
lead, has helped make
many products safer for
youngsters. The law was
passed after a wave of
recalls of lead-tainted toys.

How to set a festive holiday table


Think back to some of
the most fantastic holiday
parties you've attended and
consider what made them
memorable. For sure, the
company tops the list
No doubt the food
comes to mind, as well. And
whether it was served at a
sit-down gathering involving
fine silverware and bone
china, or buffet style with
paper plates and potluck
dishes, the table was likely
the place to gather.
Design pros say that
whether you're setting a
modern, chrome table for
an intimate dinner party, or
spreading dishes across your
weathered oaktable, take
some tips from the pros.
Aimee Beatty, in-house
stylist for Pier 1 Imports,
suggests picking a theme of
colors to help you focus in
on your look
"Start by layering tabletop
accents and accessories to
create a focal point that is
sure to get your guests in
the holiday spirit," she says. "If
your party is a formal dinner
party, select candles and
vases with some shimmer
and shine"

While a casual party takes
some pressure off the host
don't deny yourself the
pleasure of making that
buffet table memorable, she
"Holiday touches made
with ornament collections
and candles can be a great
way to spruce up a buffet ta-
ble at a casual get together,";'
Beatty says.
What you don't want to
do, however, is clutter the
table with too much decor.
And with all that food, you
need a place away from the
table where guests can grab
beverages. If you have no
formal bar, don't fret.
Sabrina Soto, Target style
expert for home, suggests
serving the gang snacks and
drinks from a bar cart in the
living room. The carts, she
says, have been catching
on with savvy entertainers
"It helps set the mood
for the party and keeps it
informal by allowing your
guests to help themselves,";'
she says.
Jen Soranson, catering
manager for Zolo Grill in
Boulder, Colo. (zologrill.
corn), suggests that when
setting a table, consistency
in the spacing of the items

is important.
"Even if you have
gorgeous china, if it's
haphazard it throws the
whole table off," she says.
"For centerpieces think
about arrangements that
are not too tall, and not too
fragrant. Candles should also
be fragrance free."
She suggests using
food-related items in
centerpieces, or as part of
the table setting.
"A piece of twine tied
loosely around a folded linen
with a sprig of rosemary or
lavender tucked in is a nice
touch;' Soranson says."With
'farm to table'themes so
popular, a mason jar as a
water glass adds character,
and you can place flowers in
certain styles of tin cans."
For an informal party, con-
sider adding small touches
to the buffet table.
"You can be festive
without going over the top,";'
Soto says. "Incorporating
small accessories and
finishing touches like glittery
gold chargers, decorative
ornaments hung from the
chandelier or layered metal-
lic tinsel trees throughout
your entertaining space can
make a space feel happy,
warm and bright."

For more formal gather-
ings, take advantage of the
rich hues of the season, says
Ralph Snyder, vice president
of home design for Kohl's
department stores.
"Taking inspiration
from traditional holiday
colors like red, white and
gold is a great way to
create a festive tablescape,"
Snyder says. "To make a
big impact use a classic
white tablecloth paired
with rich red placements
and napkins, or add a touch
of sparkle with an opulent
gold tablecloth paired with
crisp white dinnerware and
LED candles."
A centerpiece, like a red
lantern or a whimsical ani-
mal statuette, will complete
the look, he says. Kohl's

also has collections of artful
placemats, for more casual
sit-down meals.

eyes on either a formal or
informal table.

Dark red nail polish looks
good on everyone even
on women with short nails.
False eyelashes will make
you look a little exotic, but
more importantly, they will

plexions. At department

holiday parties, it's better
to be overdressed than

in moderation.
Wear festive socks.
They'll never take the place
of holiday sweaters, but
holiday socks are fun, too.

Don't feel guilty using
refrigerated pie crust from
the grocery store. It's good.
And taking homemade
pie crust off your list will

As long as your bath-

they're visiting because they

Miniseries Simulcast on
Three Cable Networks

FYI Televsion, Inc.
No one was more surprised than
Emile Hirsch ("Savages") when he
was asked to take alook at the script
for "Bonnie & Clyde," debuting
Sunday and Monday at 9 p.m. on
Lifetime, A&E and HISTORY. The
miniseries airs in two-hour install-
ments over two nights and follows
Clyde (Hirsch) as he first meets
Bonnie (Holliday Grainger, "The
Borgias"), and then takes the view-
ers through their passionate affair,
penchant for crime and brutal end.
Hirsch had been working on the
film "Lone Survivor" when the call
came in for the role of Clyde. "My
agent and manager both called me
and said, 'Hey there's a HISTORY,
A&E and Lifetime miniseries about
Bonnie and Clyde that's going to be
directed by Bruce Beresford, who
directed 'Driving Miss Daisy' and
'Tender Mercies,;" recounts Hirsch.
'And I loved 'Tender Mercies'
That's one of my favorite movies.
I think it's a classic, so I immedi-
ately knew I wanted to do it. Even
before I'd read the script, just based
on the names Bonnie and Clyde
and someone like Bruce Beresford,
whom I view as really just a first-
class director. I'd be lucky to work
on such a big project with him.
"And then when I read the
script, I was really captivated by
the way they told the story, the dif-
ferent take on it, and how it was so
raw and violent and real at times,"
Hirsch continues. "I hadn't seen
the Arthur Penn, Faye Dunaway,
Warren Beatty version. I'd always
heard about it, and I'd always in-
tended to watch it. I fancy myself a
film lover, but this was kind of like
a big chink in my cinematic armor
because I had never seen 'Bonnie
and Clyde.' But I used it to my ad-
vantage because I went, 'Oh, I've
never seen 'Bonnie and Clyde'- this
way I wonft be a parrot for Warren
Beatty. I won't just imitate
what he did in his perfor- Hol
mance. He's a great actor,
and a lot of times with m
great actors, you see their
work in something and g
then you play the same SI
role. It's hard not to try
to do what they did. By

not having seen really anything
from that movie, I was able to just
look at the history about Bonnie
and Clyde and kind of make up
my own version of who Clyde was."
Weaving in historical facts and
footage with the mythos that sur-
rounded the couple, the movie
has a stellar cast featuring Holly
Hunter as Bonnie's mom Emma
Parker. William Hurt plays Tex-
as Ranger Frank Hamer, who
took Bonnie and Clyde down in
the end. Elizabeth Reaser por-
trays P.J. Lane, the reporter who
first sensationalized the couple.
Set in Texas where Bonnie and
Ch'l, h 1. Iq -pM'iq I ',;111, the story
follows their two-year love affair
and the trouble they created for
themselves. They weren't exactly
the world's greatest masterminds
when it came to what they did.
"The truth was they were not
exceptional bank robbers;' says
Hirsch. "That's not why they be-
came notorious and famous. It was
never about them being skilled.
The only thing they were really
skilled at was getting away. And
that was because Clyde was an
exceptional driver and he had
a very good intuition about not
getting caught. He was very
good at that. But compared
to a bank robber like John
Dillinger, who was an ex-
ceptional bank robber,
they were complete
amateurs, really. The
reason why they got
famous or notorious,
I should say is because
they were a couple and
they were different at
the time. America just
hadn't seen this outlaw cou-
ple before. Not in that way'."
Working on the miniseries,
which was grueling at times,
became a lesson in teamwork
for the actors. "I think that
what we both had in com-

Iliday Grainger plays Bonnie
Parker, a girl with dreams of
making it in Hollywood before
she became a part of "Bonnie
SClyde," a miniseries debuting
iunday and Monday at 9 p.m. on
Lifetime, HISTORY and A&E.

mon was that we both were really
thrilled to be playing these parts,'
Hirsch says. "We saw a great oppor-
tunity to do some really interesting
work together. I feel like we had a
commitment to the roles and that
was really where we kind of bond-
ed, with the work Knowing that we
had a big responsibility, really being
a team together, we were constantly
not only doing scenes together, but
we were rehearsing, doing dance
training, we were doing a lot of
physical activity we were working
out at the gym. So, we were really
like a little team. Almost all of our
scenes were together, so we got
along great. She's got a great sense
of humor. She's really smart. She's a
great actress. On 'Bonnie & Clyde'
we were like a tight-knit little unit."
The miniseries is relevant in the
way the media is portrayed. It was
the coverage of
Bonnie and
Ak turned

them into folk heroes. "I think it's
relatable in the sense that there
are all kinds of reality TV stars,"
Hirsch says, "and TMZ, this kind
of obsession with celebrity culture
that certain parts of society kind
of lock on to at times and sort of
promote it even. I think that's sort
of been happening for a long time
in different forms. Now it's the In-
ternet, TV, magazines, whatever.
Back then it was all newspapers,
gossip, radio and hearsay, and so
that's sort of how it was. It's not re-
ally any different than today. The
public kind of had this fascina-
tion with Bonnie and Clyde and
they turned into these folk heroes.
Then the public eventually turned
on them when they started hurt-
ing and killing innocent people."

Q Can you tell me
anything about Russell
Crowe's upcoming
film "Noah"? -- Jon W.,
Redding, Calif.

A: "Noah" -- which also
stars Jennifer Connelly,
Emma Watson, Anthony
Hopkins and Logan
Lerman -- will flood into
theaters on March 28. The
story is about the biblical
Noah (played by Russell),
his family and their
quest to build the Ark to
save human and animal-
kind from complete
annihilation in the
upcoming Great Flood.
After watching the online
trailers, I can tell you this
is one you shouldn't miss.

Q: My favorite show,
"Rizzoli & Isles," hasn't
been on in ages! Has
season four ended
already? -- Pauline F., via

A: Don't worry, "Rizzoli
& Isles" didn't dump you;
they were on a break. The
show will return from its
fall hiatus on Feb. 25 at
9/8c with the final four
new shows of the season.
And premiering right after
it at 10/9c is "Perception,"
which also returns from
a break with four new
shows to round out its
second season. Both
shows were renewed for
a fifth and third season,
respectively, to begin
airing summer 2014.
Speaking of hit TNT
dramas, I've received lots
of letters asking about
the return of "Dallas," and
I am pleased to report
that the sexy, soapy
drama will return for its

third season Monday,
Feb. 24, at 9/8c on TNT.
This winter is gonna be

Q: I really enjoyed the
most recent "Mission:
Impossible" movie, and
I loved the addition of
Jeremy Renner. Are there
more of these movies in
the works? -- Patrick D. in
West Virginia

A: The fifth installment
in the "Mission:
Impossible" franchise will
premiere on Christmas
Day 2015. "Mission:
Impossible 5" -- which
doesn't yet have a subtitle
-- will star Tom Cruise,
with Jeremy Renner,
Paula Patton, Simon
Pegg and Ving Rhames
rumored to be returning
as well. The storyline, as
well as mention of any
villains, has been kept
pretty hush-hush so far,
but I'll be sure to share
what I find out as news
begins to leak.

Nick Lachey returns
as the host of NBC's a
cappella competition
"The Sing Off," Monday
at 9 p.m. Music has
always been a big part
of his life, and now he's
passing on that tradition
with his son, Camden.
"Music in general is
big in our home," says
the singer. "You know,
obviously I'm a musician
and my wife (Vanessa
Lachey) is a passionate
lover of music, I mean,
working in TV for so
many years. And so
there's constantly music
on in our house. Yes, we
sing to Camden every
time we put him down
for a nap or for the
night. So, there's a little
a cappella happening
in our house every day.
It's usually in the lullaby
form, but it's happening
every day. I'd like to think
his favorites are the ones
I wrote for him. I did a
lullaby record for him
that came out last year
called 'Father's Lullaby,'
and there's a song on
there called 'Sleepy
Eyes.' That one I wrote
while he was still in the

womb. So, that's the one
I sing to him every day
before he goes down. So,
whether he likes it or not,
that's really the only one
he gets served up, so he
has to like it."

It isn't a musical, but
"It's a Wonderful Life,"
airing Saturday at 8 p.m.
on NBC, is a holiday
must-see. Having stood
the test of time, the 1946
Frank Capra film is as
poignant and beauti-
ful as it was when first

ated and haven't we all
- George Bailey (James
Stewart) will touch your
heart. Down on his luck,
George is about to jump
off a bridge. That's when
second-class Angel
Clarence (Henry Trav-
ers) shows up. Clarence
shows George what his
town and family would
have been like without
him. By viewing a world
without his life being
part of it, George realizes
that with his family and
friends, he really doesn't
need anything else.

The deadlock in Congress is discour aging. It is time to stop complaining and do something about it. So I am announcing my candidacy for Congress as an independent. The campaign will begin as soon as the rst $100,000 campaign donation comes in. That check will be used to hire a campaign manager and a manager for an independent Good Government nonprot organization. The Good Government fund will be sympathetic to my candidacy, and will not be bothered by any limitations of fundraising or expenditures. Frankly, by the second week, the campaign pledges will need to start rolling in. The rst $100,000 check will pay only the two managers, phones and two adjoining ofces for the rst 90 days. Hey, good government is not cheap. My preference is to run for the Senate. A single independent vote there could be decisive in the next year or two. But there is a problem. Bill Nelson, our states Democratic senator, will not be up for re-election for ve more years. Our Republican Sen. Marco Rubio is safely in his Senate seat for another three years. The Senate job will have to wait unless Sen. Nelson quits to run for governor. He has won a lot of elections, but lost when he ran for governor. Knocking Gov. Rick Scott out of the box would erase a blot on his winning record. The need to shake up Congress is great, but the chance of a Senate opportunity opening soon is slim. I am anxious to help good government, but am not willing to move to another state to compete for an open Senate seat. It will have to be the House of Representatives. The current congressman in my district is Vern Buchanan. He is a ne fellow and shows a willingness to keep the government operating. A move of just a few miles will put me in Tom Rooneys district. Lets be practical. Rooneys pockets are not quite as deep as Buchanans. Our working democracy is in gridlock peril. It is time to get an independent in there. My eyes are open; with 435 congressmen, an independent wont have the power and impact that he might have in a close ly divided Senate. I am calling an organizational meeting of supporters in my ofce at the North Port Sun, tomorrow. Since no cash has come in yet, I suggest you stop next door at Abbes for your doughnuts and coffee. I will pay for my own. This is going to be a scrupulously honest campaign. Independents are 24 percent of registered voters in Florida. Like zebras, they come in all stripes and cannot be tamed. I am proposing the zebra as our mascot, to kick the elephant and donkey in the backside. While you are thinking about how much you want to contribute to the campaign, I am going to give some thought to what kind of dog to acquire. Franklin Roosevelt had a Scotty named Fala, which he happily and humorously defended against Republican slanders. Richard Nixon, charged with illegal campaign contributions, defended his daughters gift of a cocker spaniel named Checkers as a gift. Lyndon Johnson was fond of publicly grabbing his hunting dogs by the ears. I dont know that Hubert Humphrey had a dog. It may be why he lost the election to Nixon. If you want to get an early start in helping out the campaign, here is an idea for campaign posters: Give politics a lift. Vote for Derek. Derek Dunn-Rankin is chairman of the Sun Coast Media Group. He can be reached at to do something A graduate of Port Charlotte High School, with a history of domestic violence charges, is wanted in connection with the stabbing death of his wife in California. Authorities suspect Edly Albert Atherley II, 29, of San Bernardino, Calif., of killing Ashley Atherley, 28, who was found with her throat slashed in their home Dec. 1. Atherley is still on the run from police, who warn that he is extremely dangerous. Police believed Atherley still was in the San Bernardino area, after a security ofcer saw him trying to buy a train ticket Wednesday night, chasing him away. However police have alerted authorities in Hillsborough County, Fla., because of his wifes ties to the area; and Charlotte County, where he still may have family. In a statement made to WFTX-TV in Fort Myers, Charlotte County Sheriffs spokeswoman Debbie Bowe said she wants the community to know the Sheriffs Ofce is taking all steps to make sure everything is secure if Atherley returns to the area. Atherley previously was arrested and charged with domestic battery on at least two other occasions, the rst from a February 2005 incident in Port Charlotte when he was just 20 years old, according to CCSO records. The second arrest, in November 2008, took place in Brandon, east of Tampa Bay in Hillsborough County. In both cases, the misdemeanor charges eventually were dropped, PCHS alum a wanted manBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERSuspect sought after wifes slaying in Calif.WANTED | 12 PHOTO PROVIDED BY CCSOCharlotte County Sheris Deputies First Class Joe Fiorini, left, and Dan Cotton practice their police-package Segway skills with their emergency lights ashing. The devices currently are being used to patrol the Port Charlotte Town Center mall, but also will be used at parks, beaches and other places around town.MURDOCK Until Thursday, Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce community policing ofcers Bill Miller and Dan Cotton had never ridden a Segway. But the deputies had to learn quickly, because the agency had purchased two police-packaged Segways for patrol use. Believe it or not, theyre actually pretty easy to ride, Miller said atop one of the devic es Thursday. And its a good thing. The two-wheeled, self-balancing personal transports now will be a part of the deputies everyday patrol, beginning at the Port Charlotte Town Center mall. Youll eventually see us all throughout Charlotte County, not just at the mall, Cotton said. We just have extra patrol here for the holiday season. The Sheriffs Ofce bought the new equipment for about $8,100 apiece, using crime-prevention funding. The customized devices have a high-visibility yellow nish, so they are easily recognizable. The standing platform is raised more than a normal Segway, allowing deputies 8 inches of extra height. Although there is no siren, the devices are equipped with blue and red ashing lights. They work well, Cotton said. Its a nice tool for us to have. In addition, the Segways have added padding on the front, so if a deputy has to jump off the device, it wont get damaged. And riders carry a wireless device with them that shuts the Segway down if removed from the area, so bad guys cant ride off with the transports. The devices top out at about 12 mph. All-terrain tires allow for use at places like the beach. The Segways also will be used at parks, neighborhoods and shopping centers. The Sheriffs Ofce is dedicated to its community policing initiatives, Sheriff Bill Deputies jump aboard SegwaysBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERSEGWAYS | 13PORT CHARLOTTE In May, when sales manager Leo Dickert moved his used-car lot from Peachland Avenue, where he had been for eight years, to a gas station on U.S. 41 that had remained virtually empty and unused since being destroyed by Hurricane Charley in 2004, he looked forward to the added visibility and business his new location would bring. But he knew there were challenges ahead. The dilapidated building had a caved-in roof, no oor, broken windows and homeless people living in the rear bathroom. After investing $20,000 of his own money, though, he was ready to reap the benets. What he didnt anticipate was being tied up in government red tape for the last six months. Charlotte County threatened to shut down the Car Center of Charlotte County unless the car lot met an Oct. 31 deadline to become more presentable. So there was an additional $12,000 expense for the planting of palm trees, hickory trees and saba palms in Parkside gateway project vs. used-car lotBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITER VS. | 13 DerekDUNNRANKINCHAIRMANGOOD MORNING PHOTO PROVIDED BY TRICIA DUFFYA picture of an artists rendition of the U.S. 41/Harbor Boulevard intersection, looking east, after it is transformed into a gateway for the Parkside community.

Yes, many of us love it. But theres no denying the holidays and the decisions they involve turkey or ham, gift card or present, travel or stay home, in store or online, store bought or homemade, re-gift or buy new can be stressful. Which is where this list comes in. From fashion and festivities to shopping and gifting, its full of tips and tricks to make this your best holiday season ever. FESTIVE FASHION Its ne to wear sparkles during the day. In fact, plan on it. Leggings arent pants and actress Elaine Stritch is the only person on the planet who can get away with wearing nothing but tights and an enormous T-shirt. And thats mainly because shes old and, um, eccentric. Faux fur as long as its a color found in nature usually means instant glamour at an aordable price.

Get it: $29.99, Your wine-loving father-in-law: Created by vinter Joseph Carr in honor of his father, Josh, who was a reghter and soldier, a bottle of Josh Cellars (we like the Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir) makes a tasty gift and, even better, for every bottle purchased through Dec. 31, the company will donate $1 to Operation Homefront to support military heroes and their families. Get it: $12.99-13.99, Your baby nephew: Sure, you could go the teddy bear route or guess on a onesie size, but giving Googaro, a subscription box service for kids 3 years old and younger will not only be adored by the little guy, but by his parents, too.
