Far from robust, our recovery from the

DUNN-RANKIN withthefitsand
CHAIRMAN starts of the roller
coaster ride that has
been Florida's growth since our family
moved to Miami Beach during the Great
Depression, 77 years ago.
It was 10 years after the 1926 collapse
of the great Florida land boom. Many a
hopeful Yankee had gone back home.
The state population had slipped back to
something over 1.5 million. The landscape
was littered with weathered signs on
arches leading to developments that nev-
er got off the ground. In the summertime,
nearly empty oceanfront hotels on South
Beach rented rooms for a dollar a day.
Our father and two of his brothers-
in-law started a Miami Beach delivery
business. They had three Gulf-water-green
panel trucks with gold lettering: Special
Delivery Inc. Uncle Bob was the salesman
lining up Lincoln Road specialty stores to
buy his delivery service for their shoppers.
Uncle Bucky was the driver, and Frederic,
our dad, kept the books and helped line
up the packages in route delivery order.
The business began to build, but the
second summer was too slow to sustain
the enterprise. Bank loans were not in
the realm of possibility. They sold out to
Ryder Trucking for what they owed on
the panel trucks. Uncle Bob found a job
selling Cadillacs in the recovering Miami
economy. Frederic went to work for a CPA,
and Bucky went back to Hackensack, N.J.
Here and there new stores filled empty
lots on Lincoln Road. FHA loans encour-
aged new home construction. With $500
borrowed from his father, Frederic was
able to buy a lot and build a modest new
home in Surfside, Fla.
On Collins Avenue, along the oceanfront,
new apartments were constructed. Air con-
ditioning, not yet in South Beach hotels,
began to move beyond the movie theaters
and Burdines department store. The
recovery was underway. Florida continued
to have its economic ups and downs, but
the broad trend has been to grow.
Today reminds me of the Jimmy Carter
"malaise" of 1977. Florida was recovering
from one of its periodic busts but did not
know it. Lucky for me, as that is when
we started our business. The weekly
newspaper in Venice and a companion
paper in New Port Richey had been losing
money, making a purchase possible. The
landlord for the Venice Gondolier wanted
his building back. We were able to buy a
small building and the land to construct
a new newspaper plant from a surveyor
who had gone bankrupt.
A friendly investor put up the money to
construct the plant and office. Inflation
soon boosted the land and building value
well beyond the construction debt. Within
nine months, the business had shifted
from loss to profit.
Our Florida population is more than
10 times the size it was when our family
moved to Venice in 1977. Already we are
beginning to see new retirees feed our
population growth. Cautious businesses
are slow to staff to serve the new arrivals.
When optimism replaces caution in hiring
to serve a growing population, it will
accelerate our recovery.
It's great to be in Florida.

Team expands its reach

Punta Gorda revamp group broadens goals, boundaries

When Team Punta Gorda was
formed in 2004, in the immediate
aftermath of Hurricane Charley, the
nonprofit's objectives were clear:
rebuild and restore the city back to
At that time, the efforts centered
almost entirely on downtown Punta
Gorda, the area hardest hit by the
Today, with cleanup efforts com-
plete, the organization is ready to
expand its reach beyond the historic

downtown to other parts of the city -
and even to parts of the county.
Recovery is no longer the watch-
word. Growth and expansion are.
"In the last couple of years, we have
really reinvented Team," CEO Nancy
Johnson said. "The recovery is over.
Now we're in a community-develop-
ment mode. We're really concerned
about the economic development of
the community. People want all their
cute shops and wonderful restaurants,
but in the summertime, it's hard
for those folks. We want year-round
economic development."

That begins with solid partnerships
and unrelenting focus two things at
which Team excels.
In the last decade, the group has had
a hand in more than a dozen projects,
ranging from the Citizens Master Plan
to bike-friendly initiatives. The group's
mission is, and always will be, to make
the community a better place to live,
work and play by building collabora-
tive relationships with city and county
governments, with the help of a small
army of volunteers, Johnson said.
But the focal point has expanded to

Have a very quirky Christmas

Not sure if it was the beard making his face itch, or if this was 8-year-old Anthony Acken's Grinch face either way, he kept it on as he marched
the parade route Saturday with his Boy Scout Troop 338, during the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce's 35th Annual Christmas Parade in
Punta Gorda. See more photos, page 16.

Locals remember Sandy Hook


PUNTA GORDA- One year after
the Sandy Hook Elementary School
shootings, Monica Lucey rings a bell
for each of the 26 lives lost. The Punta
Gorda resident also relives her own
memories of a day she never could
have imagined.
Lucey was in Connecticut on
Dec. 14, 2012, visiting family about
30 miles from Newtown, Conn., when

One year later, bells toll in Newtown

she heard the news. Her daughter's
husband was a state trooper and one of
the first on the scene.
"My daughter called him and later
said to me, 'I've never heard such hor-
ror in a voice,'" she recalled. "He didn't
say much about it for a long time."
The rest of the day, and the time that

followed, were an emotional blur for
everyone in the area, and for the rest of
the nation.
"The flow of agony and sorrow went
through the entire state," Lucey said.
She was among the 30 people
gathered in a circle Saturday at
Gilchrist Park, all wanting to end the
gun violence that struck again in a
Colorado high school just the day
before. In addition to Lucey, others
present also bore witness to the Sandy

On a beautiful, breezy
morning, throngs of vol-
unteers, from toddlers to
the wheelchair-bound,
surged through the almost
endless, stark rows of white

headstones, placing the
wreaths as part of Wreaths
Across America, a national
effort to honor the heroes
who have served our nation.
This year, the wreath-
laying was part of the
cemetery's Legacy of
Valor campaign, honoring
veterans and their families
throughout Southwest

and 300 motorcycles, the

'Taking Stock' of holiday spirit

Take Stock in
Children, a scholarship
program administered
by the Charlotte Local
Education Foundation,
celebrated the season
Thursday with a Charlie
Brown Holiday Social
at the Charlotte County
School Board meeting
room in Murdock.
Students in the pro-
gram ate dinner with
family, mentors and
staff; played games; and
exchanged presents.

The program accepts
Charlotte County
students in the eighth
grade. If they get good
grades, keep out of
trouble, stay in school
and meet regularly with
their mentors, they earn
a four-year Florida pre-
paid tuition for college.
Students in the program
attend Charlotte, Lemon
Bay, Port Charlotte and
Edison Collegiate high
The program accepts

donations to help pay
for the scholarships,
and always is looking
for mentors. For more
information about how
to become involved,
contact Mary Fred
Clemmons, the CLEF's
executive director, at
941-255-0808, ext. 3113,

gram, visit http://

.1k- __JA T -1- __ --?.-- -

A. John and Carrie Gable
at Dale's Air
Conditioning & Heating,
recommend pleated
filters, where the pleats/
apex of the pleat is spaced
about ii apart, are the
best. The hypoallergenic
filters- where the pleats/
apex are o0 apart are
generally itoo good. They
are highly restrictive for
airflow. They load and get
dirty very quickly. As a
general rule of thumb, you
should inspect & change
your filter, no matter what
type, every 30 days. John
and Carrie strive to
educate their customers
on how to keep their
home heated and cooled
in the winter and summer,

Regattas build


sent message

of welcome
hen 20 sailors from four
countries competed this
week in a pair of regattas
on Charlotte Harbor, it was a story
of both personal perseverance
and of the community that has
embraced them.
Most of the sailors, but not all,
are disabled. The boat they race, a
2.4-meter keelboat, was specifically
designed to accommodate people
with physical handicaps ranging
from paralysis, muscular dystro-
phy, birth defects, degenerative
diseases, strokes and amputations.
The club hosting the two events,
Charlotte HarborYacht Club, and
its members who volunteer to
stage it have developed personal
bonds with the sailors and their
families over three years of
"That's what truly makes it
happen is the enthusiasm of the
people. The club has embraced
us from the start," said Bruce
Millar of Canada, a paraplegic who
was recently elected president
of the International 2.4mR Class
Association, the governing body of
the class.
Millar, who lives in British
Columbia and winters in St.
Petersburg, travels the world com-
peting in regattas against disabled
and able-bodied sailors. His spinal
cord injury couldn't extinguish the
love of sailing he developed as a
"I've always been a sailor. I grew
up sailing. My dad built boats in
the basement when I was a kid,"
he toldWINK-TV's Sarah Robarge.
"I'm not able to walk anymore but I
am able to sail."
Regatta organizer Martin
Holland told the Sun his fellow
club members and other vol-
unteers within the local sailing
community are so quick to answer
his call for race committee work,
he has to turn away would-be
On the deck overlooking the
CHYC basin, volunteers, sailors,
coaches and family members share
stories of racing, travel and life,
building on relationships forged
when the class members first
arrived in Charlotte Harbor in 2011
to prepare for the 2012 disabled
sailing world championship.
As the sailors depart on Sunday,
we congratulate them for their
talents and courage and tip our hat
to the club and its volunteers who
have embraced their new-found
friends and sent a message of
welcome from Charlotte Harbor to
the world.

Be careful

this season
he annual press release
about Christmas season
safety arrived this week
from Dee Hawkins-Garland, public
information officer for Charlotte
County Fire/EMS.
To review a few points:
Take care when setting up
Christmas decorations. For
goodness sake, have a spotter
when you're up a ladder. Don't
overload electrical circuits when
you decide to go full-tilt Clark
Griswold on your neighbors.
(While you're at it, watch "National
Lampoon's Christmas Vacation"
for the four-dozenth time for some
how-not-to pointers.)
Buy a fresh tree. Water it daily.
(Evergreens absorb one quart to
a gallon a water every two days.)
Don't put it near a heater.
Don't used lights with frayed
cords. (The extra strand won't
make that much difference.) Keep
potentially dangerous ornaments
out of toddler-reach. Watch the
candles. Put them out when you
leave. While you're at it, turn off the
lights too.
Hawkins-Garland also suggested
a smoke detector or fire extin-
guisher was "the perfect holiday
gift." Who are we to argue?

Another thing: Don't make too
merry at the Christmas party. Use a
designated driver or a car, please.

Expand Medicare
for all Americans

At first, the health insurance
industry went along with
Obamacare since they would
be getting more business from
more purchasers of insurance,
which would more than
offset their cost of broadening
coverage to include pre-exist-
ing conditions and insuring
children up to age 26. But now
they are canceling existing
The ACA contained a grand-
father clause to protect exist-
ing plans in effect before the
law, but insurance companies
chose to terminate some of
those plans or made changes
that nullified the grandfather
clause. Then to complete the
double-cross, they sent clients
letters blaming the health
care law for the change and
The policies being canceled
are mostly government-sub-
sidized HMO private
quasi Medicare plans called
Medicare complete and/or
Advantage, etc., and individu-
al policies that do not provide
the minimum coverage stan-
dards outlined in the law and
have very limited coverage
with very high deductibles.
Hospitals and health care
providers raise their costs
without worry knowing
their charges are guaranteed
payment by insurance. And
their market (you and me) are
captives, since caring for one's
health is a necessity. So as
costs continue to rise, we pay

for them through premium
rate increases.
This unholy alliance
between Big Insurance and
Big Health care is skillfully
downplayed by powerful
lobbyists to the detriment of
the public, who then blames
the government.
The real solution to all
this is a single-payer system
which takes the profit out of
the equation. We have such a
system- Medicare! Expand
it for all.

U.S. reps were
no help to me

I received an email the
other day showing a picture of
a "Federal Protection Service"
vehicle supposedly taken in
Grand Junction, Colo. Having
never heard of the Federal
Protection Agency, my radar
went into high alert, and I did
some checking.
Turns out, this agency has
been around for 42 years,
first under Immigration and
Customs Enforcement and
now under the Department
of Homeland Security. It is
responsible for security of
some 9,000 federally owned
and leased buildings, primar-
ily federal courthouses. There
are two courthouses and a
U.S. Geological Survey Agency
in Grand Junction.
In 2008 the budget for the
agency was $615 million. I
wondered what it is today?
After two hours of looking
online, I was able to find out
that the agency has been
investigated several times
but was not able to find any
recent budget information.
Calls to Vern Buchanan's office
and Tom Rooney's office were
fruitless. They both directed
me to the Internet. Then
Rooney's office suggested I
call Homeland Security. I was
still laughing when I hung up.
I don't expect our repre-
sentatives or their staff to
know all the answers. But I do
expect them to know where to
get them and to assist me if I
reach a brick wall.

The left's reality problem

he "reality-based
community" isn't
what it used to be.
Progressives spent
much of the George
W Bush years deriding
the right for disdaining
reality itself and waging
an associated "war on
science," such was its
purported hostility to ev-
idence. The meme arose
from a highhanded blind
quote from a Bush senior
adviser to journalist Ron
Suskind; the adviser
said that people in the
"reality-based communi-
ty" underestimated how
the United States could
alter the state of things
through the exercise of
its power.
The left happily
adopted the appellation
"reality-based communi-
ty." It congratulated itself
on its factual rigor and
nominated for president
a man whose initial ap-
peal was based, in part,
on his exquisite sense
of nuance. Message:

We're more empirically
grounded and intellectu-
ally supple than you.
The erstwhile
reality-based community
is having a tough time
of it lately, though. Most
infamously, Obamacare
is foundering on the
flagrant deceptions used
to sell it, exposed every
day by the workings of
the law in reality.
Many liberals still don't
want to acknowledge the
rather straightforward
fact that if you man-
date more insurance
benefits in the so-called
Affordable Care Act,
insurance will cost more.
Q.E.D. You might be

able to cushion the cost
increase for some people
with subsidies, but not
for everyone, and the
underlying insurance
is still more not less
- expensive.
New York Times
columnist Paul Krugman
wrote a particularly smug
op-ed titled "The Wonk
Gap" a couple of months
ago, celebrating the
left's lopsided advan-
tage in policy analysis
at the same time he
pooh-poohed and took
as a sign of rank igno-
rance the Republican
contention that there
would be sticker shock
from Obamacare.
Krugman must
consider it in extremely
poor form that his own
paper is kowtowing to
the ignoramuses by
publishing stories on
how couples like Mike
and Kay Horrigan of
North Carolina are faring
under the Affordable
Care Act: "Mr. Horrigan's

coverage by a state
high-risk insurance
program was eliminated,
then replaced by a more
expensive plan. His
wife's individual plan
was canceled for being
substandard, then sud-
denly renewed also at
a higher price."
The deceptions around
Obamacare are central
- both to the law and
to the left's advocacy
generally. So much of
liberal policy is based on
Affordable Care Act-style
thinking, which involves
hiding and never ac-
knowledging the costs
of a given policy; giving
legislation a warm and
fuzzy name on the as-
sumption that its results
will live up to that label;
and moralistic attacks on
people who resist as fools
and ogres.
Every side in a po-
litical argument tends
to gild the lily, but the
acknowledgment of any
downside is particularly

devastating to liberal
presumptions. Liberals
are inherently activists
on domestic policy, and
to make the strongest
possible case for action,
you need certainty,
not nuance; cost-free
benefits, not painful
trade-offs; blissful prom-
ises, not unintended
Consider the minimum
wage. Rarely do liberals
truly grapple with the
possibility support-
ed by some, but not
all research that it
suppresses employment.
If they did, they would
be more cautious about
advocating a higher min-
imum wage in a soft job
market, and less scornful
of opponents.
When Sen. Rand Paul,
R-Ky., said the other day
that extended unemploy-
ment benefits could keep
people from searching
for a job, he was de-
nounced, literally, as a
Scrooge. It doesn't matter

that there is plenty of
evidence some of it
once mustered by Alan
Krueger, the former
head of the White House
Council of Economic
Advisers on Paul's
side. He is presumed
guilty of a moral failing.
The 19th century
laissez-faire thinker
William Graham Sumner
famously wrote of "the
forgotten man" who
bears the costs of feel-
good economic policy.
Sumner said that "he
is the man who never
is thought of He is the
victim of the reformer,
the social speculator,
and philanthropist." The

The GOP's punishment cure

ix years have passed
since the U.S.
economy entered
the Great Recession, 4 12
since it officially began
to recover, but long-term
unemployment remains
disastrously high. And
Republicans have a
theory about why this is
happening. Their theory
is, as it happens, com-
pletely wrong. But they're
sticking to it and as a
result, 1.3 million Amer-
ican workers, many of
them in desperate finan-
cial straits, are set to lose
unemployment benefits
at the end of December.
Merry Christmas.
Now, the GOP's
desire to punish the
unemployed doesn't arise
solely from bad econom-
ics; it's part of a general
pattern of afflicting the
afflicted while com-
forting the comfortable
(no to food stamps,
yes to farm subsidies).
But ideas do matter as
John Maynard Keynes
famously wrote, they
are "dangerous for good
or evil." And the case of
unemployment benefits
is an especially clear

example of superficially
plausible but wrong
economic ideas being
dangerous for evil.
Here's the world as
many Republicans
see it: Unemployment
insurance, which
generally pays eligible
workers between 40
and 50 percent of their
previous pay, reduces the
incentive to search for a
new job. As a result, the
story goes, workers stay
unemployed longer. In
particular, it's claimed
that the Emergency
Compensation program,
which lets workers col-
lect benefits beyond the
usual limit of 26 weeks,
explains why there are
4 million long-term
unemployed workers in
America today, up from

just 1 million in 2007.
the GOP answer to the
problem of long-term
unemployment is to
increase the pain of the
long-term unemployed:
Cut off their benefits,
and they'll go out and
find jobs. How, exactly,
will they find jobs when
there are three times
as many job-seekers as
job vacancies? Details,
Proponents of this
story like to cite academ-
ic research some of it
from Democratic-leaning
economists that
seemingly confirms the
idea that unemployment
insurance causes unem-
ployment. They're not
equally fond of pointing
out that this research is
two or more decades old,
has not stood the test of
time, and is irrelevant in
any case given our cur-
rent economic situation.
The view of most
labor economists now
is that unemployment
benefits have only a
modest negative effect
on job search and in
today's economy have no

negative effect at all on
overall employment. On
the contrary, unemploy-
ment benefits help create
jobs, and cutting those
benefits would depress
the economy as a whole.
Ask yourself how,
exactly, ending unem-
ployment benefits would
create more jobs. It's
true that some of the
currently unemployed,
finding themselves even
more desperate than
before, might manage to
snatch jobs away from
those who currently have
them. But what would
give businesses a reason
to employ more workers
as opposed to replacing
existing workers?
You might be tempted
to argue that more
intense competition
among workers would
lead to lower wages, and
that cheap labor would
encourage hiring. But
that argument involves
a fallacy of composition.
Cut the wages of some
workers relative to those
of other workers, and
those accepting the wage
cuts may gain a compet-
itive edge. Cut everyone's

wages, however, and
nobody gains an edge. All
that happens is a general
fall in income which,
among other things,
increases the burden of
household debt, and is
therefore a net negative
for overall employment.
The point is that
employment in today's
American economy is
limited by demand, not
supply. Businesses aren't
failing to hire because
they can't find willing
workers; they're failing to
hire because they can't
find enough customers.
And slashing unemploy-
ment benefits which
would have the side ef-
fect of reducing incomes
and hence consumer
spending would just
make the situation worse.
Still, don't expect
prominent Republicans
to change their views,
except maybe to come
up with additional
reasons to punish the
unemployed. For ex-
ample, Sen. Rand Paul
recently cited research
suggesting that the long-
term unemployed have a
hard time re-entering the

work force as a reason
to, you guessed it, cut
off long-term unem-
ployment benefits. You
see, those benefits are
actually a "disservice" to
the unemployed.
The good news, such
as it is, is that the White
House and Senate
Democrats are trying to
make an issue of expiring
unemployment benefits.
The bad news is that
they don't sound willing
to make extending
benefits a precondition
for a budget deal, which
means that they aren't
really willing to make a
So the odds, I'm
sorry to say, are that the
long-term unemployed
will be cut off, thanks
to a perfect marriage of
callousness a com-
plete lack of empathy for
the unfortunate with
bad economics. But then,
hasn't that been the story
of just about everything

n Kerry s high-wire diplomacy

as John E Ker-
ry turned into
the unexpected
star of President Barack
Obama's second term?
He was Obama's
second choice as secre-
tary of state (after Susan
Rice). He's the same
windy, stiff Bostonian
who ran unsuccessfully
for president a decade
ago. And he has taken
on a list of assignments
that looked distinctly
unpromising: nuclear
negotiations with Iran,
peace between Israel and
the Palestinians, the civil
war in Syria.
But in 10 months,
Kerry has embarked on a
whirlwind of diplomacy.
He helped conclude an
interim deal with Iran
that puts a ceiling on
Tehran's nuclear enrich-
ment. He launched new
Israeli-Palestinian peace
talks with the goal of pro-
ducing a deal next year.
And he secured a date for
negotiations to end the
war in Syria, although it's
still not certain who will
show up.
"The naysayers are
wrong to call peace in
this region an impossible

goal," Kerry said in
Jerusalem on Friday, at
the end of his latest dash
through the Middle East.
"It always seems impossi-
ble until it's done."
Actually, the naysayers
say a lot more than that.
For one thing, they note,
Air Kerry has produced a
series of thrilling takeoffs
but no safe landings.
The Iran agreement
is a long way from a
permanent deal, the
Israeli-Palestinian talks
are just talks, and the
Syria conference is little
more than a date and a
city (Geneva, Jan. 22).
But give Kerry credit.
He has dared to take
big risks in notable
contrast to his revered
but risk-averse prede-
cessor, Hillary Rodham
Clinton. Clinton tended
to subcontract out the

unpromising assign-
ments to special envoys
like the late Richard C.
Holbrooke, her deputy
for Afghanistan. But
Kerry has taken them on
himself, personally and
visibly. If any of them fail
- and they all could -
he'll take the fall himself
One reason for the con-
trast is simple: Kerry, who

turns 70 this week, knows
this is almost certainly
his last major assignment
in American politics -
his last opportunity to
make an outsized mark.
Unlike Clinton, he isn't
considering running for
president again, which
means he can afford to
absorb a setback or two.
Besides, one lesson of

Clinton's tenure (to Kerry
fans, anyway) is that cau-
tion may be an overrated
virtue. Quick quiz: What
was Clinton's greatest
achievement as secretary
of state? Answer: the
"reset" with Russia and
it didn't last.
"There are opportu-
nities now, and Kerry
feels it's vital to take

advantage of them," a
State Department official
told me. "His sense is that
we've only got so much
Back to the naysayers,
though. Not everyone
thinks Kerry is doing his
job right. "This guy has

Edna St. Vincent
Liberals' love of
recycling extends to
their ideas, one of which
illustrates the minia-
turization of Barack
Obama's presidency. He
fervently favors a minor
measure that would have
mostly small, mostly
injurious effects on a
small number of people.
Nevertheless, raising the
minimum hourly wage
for the 23rd time since
1938, from today's $7.25
to $10.10, is a nifty idea,

If you think today's
7 percent unemployment
rate is too low. (It would
be 10.9 percent if the
workforce participation
rate were as high as
it was when Obama
was first inaugurated;
since then, millions of
discouraged workers
have stopped searching
for jobs.) Because less
than 3 percent of the
workforce earns the
minimum wage, increas-
ing it will not greatly
increase unemployment.
Still, raising the price of

low-productivity workers
will somewhat reduce
demand for them.
If you reject that last
sentence. If you do,
name other goods or ser-
vices for which you think
demand is inelastic when
their prices increase.
If you think teenage
(16-19) unemployment
(20.8 percent), and espe-
cially African-American
teenage unemployment
(35.8 percent), is too low.
Approximately 24 per-
cent of minimum wage
workers are teenagers.
If you think govern-
ment policy should
encourage automation of
the ordering and prepa-
ration of food to replace
workers in the restaurant
industry, which employs
43.8 percent of minimum
wage workers.
If you think it is
irrelevant that most
minimum wage earners
are not poor. Most
minimum wage workers
are not heads of house-
holds. More than half
are students or other
young, usually part-time

workers in families
whose average income
is $53,000 a year, which
is $2,000 more than
the average household
If you do not care that
there are more poor
people whose poverty
derives from being
unemployed than from
poor wages. True, some
of the working poor earn
so little they are eligible
for welfare. But an
increase in the minimum
wage will cause some of
these to become unem-
ployed and on welfare.
If you do not mind a
minimum wage increase
having a regressive
cost-benefit distribution.
It would jeopardize
marginal workers to
benefit organized labor,
which supports a higher
minimum in the hope
that this will raise the
general wage floor, there-

irrelevant that nearly
two-thirds of minimum

growth has accrued to
the top 1 percent.
If you think forcing
employers to spend X
dollars more than nec-
essary to employ labor
for entry-level jobs will
stimulate the economy.
If you believe this, you
must think the workers
receiving the extra dollars
will put the money to
more stimulative uses
than their employers
would have. If so, why
not a minimum wage
of $50.50 rather than
the $10.10? Because this
might discourage hiring?

decreed that by 2000 the

2010 it was 78.2 percent.
Increasing the minimum
wage would increase the
incentive to leave school
early. One scholarly study
concluded that in states
where students may leave

es in the minimum wage
caused teenage school
enrollment to decline.

Republicans buck the purity police

house Speaker
John Boeh-
ner (R-Ohio),
addressing the cameras
after his weekly meeting
with House Republicans,
was his usual, courtly
self Wednesday morning
- until Nancy Cordes of
CBS News found her way
under his tanned skin.
"Mr. Speaker, most ma-
jor conservative groups
have put out statements
blasting this deal," she
said of the compromise
that House Budget
Committee Chairman
Paul Ryan, R-Wis.,
reached Tuesday night
with Senate Democrats.
Boehner interrupted
her. "You mean the
groups that came out
and opposed it before
they ever saw it?" he
"Yes, those groups,"
she said.
Boehner raised his
voice. "They- they're
using our members
and they're using the
American people for
their own goals," he said.
"This is ridiculous!"
Yes, it is. And the fact
that Republicans finally
realize it means that


ball," Sen. John McCain,
R-Ariz., said last month
- adding, Washington-
style, that he still
considers Kerry "a very
good friend." "Our whole
policy in the Middle East
is in such disarray that
I've never seen anything
like it."

Ryan's budget com-
promise can be called
a success, even if it
accomplishes little else.
Much is wrong with
the deal to fund the
government for the
next 21 months. It does
nothing to address
Medicare and Social
Security, which are the
long-term problems
threatening the nation's
finances. It doesn't
change the inefficient
and illogical tax code. It
doesn't extend unem-
ployment benefits, and it
doesn't even fully replace
the automatic spending
cuts known as seques-
tration, which is what
negotiators had set out
to do in the first place.
Essentially, lawmakers
reached agreement by

McCain and other
conservatives argue that
the nuclear deal with
Iran ceded too much to
the mullahs and shook
the confidence of allies
like Saudi Arabia and
Israel. They worry Kerry's
Syria talks aren't likely to
succeed at easing Bashar
Assad out of power.
Some diplomats worry
that Kerry is spending
too much time on
Israeli-Palestinian talks

And yet Ryan achieved
something monumental:
He persuaded his fellow
conservatives to com-
promise, even though
they are under pressure
to oppose the pact from
powerful groups such
as Club for Growth,
Heritage Action and
Americans for Prosperity

the White House is happy
to drop into someone
else's lap. But it does
lead some diplomats to
wonder whether Obama

on to back up Kerry when
he makes a deal.
The critics' bottom
line is that Kerry is
putting too much store
in diplomacy for diplo-
macy's sake that he's
too confident of his own
power to persuade, too
eager to make a deal.

Viva Florida 500 ends fine year


Rick Scott appointed
Ken Detzner as Florida's
secretary of state in
February 2012. After
Detzner accepted the
appointment, Scott's first
question to Detzner was:
"How do you feel about
Viva Florida 500?" the
2013 commemoration
of Spanish explorer Juan
Ponce de Leon discovering
Florida in 1513.
Detzner said, "I'm a
proud Floridian. I like it."
Scott said, "Great, you're
in charge." Detzner said,
"How much money do we
have?" Scott said, "How
good a fundraiser are you?"
Such was the
start to the celebration of
Florida's 500th anniver-
sary. But as the yearlong
celebration comes to a
close this month, Detzner
and others judge the effort
a success.
It was not as all-en-
compassing as some
originally envisioned.
And the state never did
allocate any money for the
effort. But Viva Florida 500
became like the fable of
"stone soup." To the pot of
seemingly nothing, Florida
residents kept making con-
tributions of time, money
and effort until the state
had a full meal.
Some 850 events were
held around Florida. Some
2,000 government agen-
cies, businesses and civic
organizations partnered
with the state. Each of
Florida's 67 counties held a
commemoration of some
kind and created a time
The prince and princess

of Spain visited Miami.
Spanish sailing ships
visited Florida's east coast.
Tallahassee's Museum of
Florida History added a
permanent exhibit on the
Spanish colonial period
and showcased a tempo-
rary exhibit by Spanish
There were Viva Florida
500 lottery tickets, business
workshops, proclamations
and roadside signs.
Some events even were
organized by the Seminole
and Miccosukee tribes
of Florida, which allayed
officials' fears of a backlash
from Native Americans
over the celebration of
Europeans "discovering"
"It was all organic, with
each community deciding
how it was going to get
involved and celebrate
its unique heritage," said
Deputy Secretary of State
Kerri Post, who quarter-
backed the state's effort. "It
was all done with passion-
ate people locally who
wanted to be involved in
something big for Florida."
There were even bigger
plans originally.
In 2004, the Florida
Legislature passed the
"Discovery of Florida
Commission Act." It creat-
ed an elaborate framework
for celebrating Florida's
500th anniversary, nine
years hence.
It appointed a quincen-
tennial executive director.
It created a blue-ribbon
commission of former
governors; history experts;
and tourism, arts and
parks officials to direct the
celebration. It called for an
emphasis on the history of
five Florida counties where

"I love history, and I think there is
so much to learn and share about
this state. (So) I think this was a
great cultural event for the state."

- Lindsay Harrington, former state representative and longtime Royal
Order of Ponce de Leon Conquistadors member

Ponce de Leon is believed
to have landed.
It called for exhibits,
publications, films and
seminars. It called for
trademarked quincenten-
nial products and vehicle
license plates. It stipulated
special school curricula.
Little of that came to
pass. A quincentennial
executive director, Wes
Singletary, served a few
years. But the Legislature
never budgeted money
for the quincentennial.
So the multitude of ideas
floundered. In 2009, the
Legislature repealed the act
and assigned responsibility
for the quincentennial to
the Department of State.
"The statute was crazy.
It was cumbersome and
required a boatload of
stuff we didn't need," said
Singletary, now executive
director of Big Bend
Habitat for Humanity. "We
had a lot of meetings with
high-ranking officials. But
when push came to shove,
there was no money."
No one was more
disappointed than the
bill's sponsor, state Rep.
Lindsay Harrington,
R-Punta Gorda, who
spent eight years (1996-
2004) in the House
of Representatives.
Harrington is a longtime
member of the Royal
Order of Ponce de
Leon Conquistadors.
The 1979-founded

organization celebrates
Ponce de Leon's ties to
Charlotte County.
At Charlotte Harbor,
Ponce de Leon spent three
weeks repairing his ships
in 1513. Also at Charlotte
Harbor, Ponce de Leon
founded a colony on his
second trip to Florida in
1521. Although the colony
was abandoned after three
months, it introduced the
pigs and cattle that became
Florida's native stock.
Harrington is dis-
appointed his bill was
repealed. He's disap-
pointed Viva Florida 500
abandoned the emphasis
on the five counties,
including Charlotte, with
a tie to Ponce de Leon. He
is frustrated state officials
have yet to replace the
Charlotte County mon-
ument to Ponce de Leon
that was removed during
the widening of U.S. 41.
But Harrington, who
spent the year talking
about Ponce de Leon
to civic groups, is glad
the quincentennial was
"I think it was a very
good effort that could have
been a lot better; the state
didn't want to put up the
money," said Harrington,
a real estate agent. "I love
history, and I think there
is so much to learn and
share about this state. (So)
I think this was a great cul-
tural event for the state."

Earlier this year, Lindsay Harrington of the local Royal Order of
Ponce de Leon Conquistadors carries the flag of Spain in honor of
the 500th anniversary of Juan Ponce de Leon's landing in Florida.

One of the goals of
Viva Florida was to
boost Florida tourism by
emphasizing the state's
unique history as the first
U.S. state explored by
That "heritage tourism"
pitch appears successful.
Last year, Florida welcomed
a record 91.5 million
visitors; it's on pace this
year for 94 million visitors.
Last year, visitors spent
$71.8 billion in Florida;
although the figures aren't
in yet for 2013, tourism
officials expect a significant
increase over 2012.
"I thought Viva Florida
succeeded in expanding
what people think of when
they think of Florida," said
Will Seccombe, executive
director of Visit Florida,
the state tourism agency.
"We built on our brand of

incredible beaches and
attractions to highlight arts
and culture and history."
Detzner saidViva
Florida will continue to
benefit the state's heritage
tourism starting with
the next two years. In
2014, Florida celebrates
the 50th anniversary of the
state's civil rights move-
ment; in 2015, it celebrates
St. Augustine's 450th
anniversary as the nation's
oldest city.
"(Viva Florida 500) far
exceeded all my expec-
tations," Detzner said.
"Could we have done
more with more money?
Sure. But this was the most
democratic experience.
It was people doing for
themselves. I thought it
really worked well, and
provided a platform to
carry the idea forward."

Sheriff: Colo. gunman planned to hurt more people

(AP) A teenager who
wounded a fellow stu-
dent before killing him-
self at a suburban Denver
high school entered the
building with a shotgun,
a machete, three Molotov
cocktails and ammuni-
tion strapped to his body,
likely intending to track
down a librarian who had
disciplined him, authori-
ties said Saturday.
After firing a round
down a hallway, Karl
Pierson, 18, shot a
fellow student who just
happened to be sitting
nearby with a friend as
he headed toward the
library. Claire Davis, 17,
was shot in the head at

Drones or not, same-day delivery part of retail future

Newspapers) -Amazon
CEO Jeff Bezos' suggestion
last week that the online
giant could use drones
in the future to deliver
packages touched off a
heated national debate,
from skepticism over
the practicality of such a
plan to questions about
its impact on privacy and
Many simply called it a
publicity stunt.
Missing from the
discussion, however, was
the basic question of why.
If such a plan were to
become reality, how would

it benefit Amazon?
The answer: The
company wants to make
same-day deliveries
of online purchases as
convenient as grabbing a
can of Coca-Cola from a
vending machine, logistics
and retail experts said.
Just as Amazon influ-
enced the industry to
make two- or three-day
free shipping the norm
through its Amazon Prime
membership, it wants to
do the same with same-
day delivery.
"That's actually critical
for the future of retail," said
Marshal Cohen, a retail

analyst with NewYork-
based NPD Group. "People
have an expectation of
instant gratification."
It's also a balancing act.
Same-day delivery can be
expensive and depending
on the size of the item
could possibly outweigh
the benefits of fulfilling the
consumer's desire. But to
decline to do so opens a
window for a competitor
to fill the vacuum.
Some brick-and-mortar
retailers, such as Home
Depot, are pushing a work-
around: in-store pickups
of online orders. Simply
use the Internet to find the

item and have it shipped
to one of the Atlanta-based
home improvement
retailer's stores. Customers
already in the buildings
will be guided to terminals
to place orders or be
instructed to use their
cellphones if they can't
find products on shelves,
spokesman Stephen
Holmes said.
Others that have made
in-store pickup part of
their strategy include Toys
R Us, Target and Bed Bath
& Beyond.
Still, with the impor-
tance of online sales,
retailers recognize that

they will soon need
a same-day-delivery
strategy, also known as the
"last-mile" in logistics, the
experts said.
It won't happen this
holiday season, but the
gifts you give in 2014 could
be delivered the day of
purchase by your next-
door neighbor. A number
of new companies, such
as Palo Alto, Calif.-based
Deliv or local startup
Kanga, are springing up
to offer many of us the
opportunity to become
independent contractors
by using the extra space in
our cars for deliveries.

Jupiter's moon spews water vapor

(LA Times) -The icy
moon Europa squirts
water like a squishy bath
toy when it's kneaded by
Jupiter's gravity- and the
Hubble Space Telescope
has caught it in the act.
The data captured by
Hubble depict two huge
geysers of water vapor
spewing out of the moon,
probably from cracks near
its south pole. At 124 miles
high, the geysers were tall
enough to reach from Los
Angeles to San Diego.
The discovery, described
Thursday in the journal
Science, shows that Europa
is still geophysically active

was "open for prayer."

all in what he says is a war
against a terrorist invasion.
For Luay and other
staunch supporters of
President Bashar Assad,
the rise of Islamic militants
among Syria's rebels has
crystalized a black-and-
white vision of the bloody
three-year conflict. The
rebellion, they argue,

has nothing to do with
seeking democracy: It is
a campaign by al-Qaida-
linked fighters to impose
an intolerant rule by strict
Islamic law.
Their view hardens with
every report of religious
extremists eclipsing the
opposition's nationalist
fighters and secular
activists carrying out
suicide bombings, kid-
napping moderate rebels,
targeting Christians, Shiites
and other minorities and
implementing Shariah in
areas they control.
In the latest sectarian
slaying, state media and
opposition activists said

Friday that al-Qaida-linked
fighters infiltrated the
Damascus suburb of Adra
and killed residents, most
from the Alawite and Druse
minorities, which largely
support Assad. The Britain-
based Syrian Observatory
for Human Rights said at
least 19 had been killed
over the past two days,
while other activists said
the dead could number in
the dozens.
Opposition supporters
and their international
backers have grown
increasingly concerned
over the Islamic militants,
with the U.S. and Britain
suspending non-lethal aid

to the rebels this week. And
fear of these extremists has
swung some Syrians who
were on the fence to prefer
life under Assad.
Among die-hard Assad
supporters, it has become
the central battle cry,
providing a clarity to a
complicated and divisive
war. It is common to hear
them dismiss the idea that
there are any "real Syrians"
among the rebels.
"We are facing interna-
tional terrorism, involving
all the terrorists of the
world," Luay, 53, told The
Associated Press. "The war
in Syria is not a war against
the regime or a civil war or

a war for certain demands.
The war in Syria is between
knowledge and ignorance,
between right and wrong,
between true and false
Luay spoke last week as
he prepared to mark the
40-day memorial of the
death of his son Hassan,
a 25-year-old lieutenant,
killed in a gunbattle with
Muslim extremist rebels in
Harasta, one of the suburbs
east of Damascus where
the army has been trying
throughout the conflict to
dislodge rebels in grueling
warfare with no decisive
victories. Two of his other
sons have been wounded

in battle and returned to
the front.
In his phone calls with
his sons, Luay says he tells
them, "Fight until mar-
tyrdom" and don't get
"It's something we agreed
on together at home," said
Luay, who also has two
more sons still too young
for the army. "If you're
taken, it means torture
and dismemberment. It
will demoralize the other
brothers. And to negotiate
means haggling over the
fate of our nation."
"All my children are
offered for sacrifice for
Syria," he said.

over how the unruly

Facing heightened

Traditional tribal rituals at Mandela's funeral

- An ox will be slaugh-
tered, the deceased
will be wrapped in a
leopard skin and a family
elder will keep talking
to the body's spirit: The
state funeral for South
Africa's anti-apartheid
icon Nelson Mandela
on Sunday will also
include those rituals
from the tradition of the
Xhosa people, to whom
Mandela's Thembu clan
The funeral in
Mandela's southeastern
childhood village of
Qunu will be an eclectic
mix of traditional rituals,
Christian elements and
those of a state funeral.
Here's a brief look at
the Xhosa people and the
main elements of their
burial traditions:

The Xhosa people
The majority of the
country's 7 million Xhosa
people live in the coun-
try's southeast, in the
Eastern Cape province.
Their language, Xhosa,
is famous for its three
click sounds. The Xhosa
recognize the presence of
ancestral spirits and call

upon them for guidance.
Veneration for the world
of the ancestors, or
Umkhapho in Xhosa,
plays an important role
in their culture. The
ceremonial slaughtering
of animals is one of the
ways the ancestors are
called upon for help,
according to a website
of South Africa's Tourism

Talking to
the body
Following a tradition
called Thetha, Xhosa
culture requires a
family elder to stay with
Mandela's body and
explain to his spirit what
is happening. "When
the body lies there, the
spirit is still alive," said
Rev. Wesley Mabuza,
chairman of South
Africa's Commission
for the Promotion and
Protection of the right of
Cultural, Religious and
Linguistic Communities.
"The body must be
informed of whatever
is happening before the
funeral," said Nokuzola
Mndende, director of
the Icamagu Institute for

Crowds of mourners wave and cheer as the motorcade transporting the body of Nelson Mandela
passes through the town of Mthatha on its way to Qunu, South Africa, Saturday.

traditional religions. The
body must rest for one
night in his family house
before the burial. "On
Sunday he must then be
told 'Madiba, we are now
burying you,'" she added,
using his clan name in an
expression of affection
and respect.

Wrapped in a
leopard skin
The deceased must

be wrapped in a special
garment. For people of a
high rank like Mandela,
who is the son of a
traditional clan chief,
the body or the casket
is usually wrapped in a
leopard's skin, accord-
ing to Mndende. "But
because Madiba is also
a former statesman,
maybe there will also
be the South African
flag," she said. Mabuza
added: "It's a ritual

showing deep respect
for the deceased."

the ox
Xhosa tradition
requires the slaughtering
of an animal early on the
day of the burial. After
the ritual throat slitting,
the animal will be eaten
by the mourners, usually
outside the family house.
For people of a high rank

like Mandela an ox will
be killed, Mndende said.
"That ox is slaughtered,
cooked and eaten all in
one day," she said. In some
regions no salt will be used
to season the meat, but in
the area of Mandela's clan
that's up to the family's
discretion, she added.

End of the
A year after the
burial another ox will be
slaughtered and eaten
by the family to mark
the end of the mourning
period, in a tradition
called Ukuzila. "There
must be a time when the
mourning is broken,"
Mndende said.

back ritual
About another year
later a joyous ceremony
is celebrated to bring
back the deceased into
the family so that the
person will henceforth
be looking over the
family and its children as
a well-meaning ancestor,
a ritual called Ukubuyisa,
according to Mndende.

Racism outlives Mandela in rural South Africa

Africa (Washington Post)
- On the edge of this rural
town, poor blacks have
been moving into a line of
new tin shacks across the
road from an affluent white
enclave. Now, the whites
are taking action. "For Sale"
signs are posted on many
of their large brick houses.
"The white people are
running away," said Sara
Letsie, who moved into
her shack two months ago.
"They don't want to be our
LeaVictor is one of the
few whites remaining in
the neighborhood. "They
are afraid of the blacks on
the other side," she said,
pointing one by one toward
five of her neighbors'
houses. 'All of them are
selling. They have started to
take their stuff out."
When Nelson Mandela
became South Africa's first
black president in 1994,
one of his biggest challeng-
es was bringing his ideals
of reconciliation, tolerance
and forgiveness to hun-
dreds of conservative,
white-run towns. In rural
areas, where 40 percent of
the country's population
lives, the apartheid system

of racial segregation was
deeply entrenched, more
so than anywhere else in
the nation.
Mandela, who died
Dec. 5 at 95 and will be
buried today, leaves behind
a rural landscape where the
lives of many blacks have
improved. Political power
is in their hands. A race war
between blacks and whites,
predicted by many during
the transition from white
rule, never erupted. Whites
have not fled in huge
But racial equality
remains elusive in
Ventersdorp and other rural
areas. Whites and blacks are
still socially isolated from
each other. Racism persists,
often below the surface
but visible in the divided
geography of the area.
Both blacks and whites in
Ventersdorp, in discussions
this past week, expressed
concerns about the future
in a post-Mandela nation.
"There are people who
still don't want to accept
the change, even today,"
saidVelaphi Qankase, 39, a
town official with the ruling
African National Congress
party. "Us blacks, we are
the victims. But we accept


In this March 27,1998, file photo, Nelson Mandela and former
U.S. president Bill Clinton look to the outside from Mandela's
Robben Island prison cell in Cape Town, South Africa.

the change. But the people
who oppressed you before,
when you call for peace,
it becomes difficult when
they don't accept that."
Ventersdorp became
notorious for being the
headquarters of the
white extremist Afrikaner
Resistance Movement,
known by its acronym,
AWB, in the Afrikaans
language. In the 1980s
and 1990s, the neo-Nazi
paramilitary group orga-
nized large rallies against
reforms in apartheid
laws. It assaulted blacks
and liberal whites, staged

assassinations and forced
blacks from their homes in
nearby Tshing township,
built during apartheid
to house blacks serving
Ventersdorp's whites.
In the months before the
all-race 1994 elections that
brought Mandela and the
African National Congress
to power, AWB militants
launched a bombing cam-
paign that killed 21 people
and injured dozens more.
Even after the elections,
Ventersdorp was known for
its refusal to embrace the
new South Africa.
In 1995, Ventersdorp

elected its first black mayor,
and the town council was
mostly black. New laws
forbade segregation. Still,
the right-wing whites
barred blacks from entering
white-run hotels, bars or
the local pool. The Golf
Club admitted its first black
members only nine years
The AWB's leader,
Eugene Terre'Blanche, often
railed against Mandela and
the ANC. Victor recalled
how many whites referred
to Mandela by a racist
slur widely used by white
Afrikaners during apart-
heid. Terre'Blanche, who
was jailed for three years
for assaulting a black gas
station worker, was hacked
and beaten to death in 2010
by a black farm laborer,
allegedly in a dispute over
The AWB still main-
tains its headquarters
inVentersdorp. But the
movement has become
fractured, and its member-
ship has declined.
Today, blacks live in town
and are free to eat and
drink anywhere, and they
go to school with whites.
But as in most parts of
the country, whites still

dominate the local econo-
my. Whites own nearly all
of the most lucrative farms
aroundVentersdorp, with
blacks working as their
laborers or servants.
The white community
is a meld of liberals and
conservative Afrikaners,
many of whom mourned
the death of Mandela.
At the Dutch Reformed
Church, which preached
that blacks were inferior
but in 1992 declared
apartheid a sin congre-
gants bowed their heads
in silence and listened
solemnly as Mandela was
described as a man who
taught Afrikaners about the
importance of reconcilia-
tion. Many whites feared
that Mandela would be so
bitter that he would seek
revenge after spending 27
years imprisoned by the
white government.
"I don't think there was
any better person that
could have taken our
country into a new democ-
racy than Mandela," said
Alan Jones, a white farmer
and local politician. "The
transition, and everything
else, went smoothly. It was
the opposite of what many
expected to happen."

Chinese lunar probe makes soft landing on moon

aid Stevens and others
who were in the outpost

when it was attacked
by militants on the 11th
anniversary of the attacks
of Sept. 11, 2001.
Those CIA leaders
decided they and their

team should wait before
rushing from their annex

the administration failed
to answer a call from the
CIA security team for
combat aircraft.
"The team leader knew
he was on his own," said
Westmoreland, R-Ga.
He explained that the
lack of air support was
clear to all CIA employees
working in Libya because
of a 2011 CIA memoran-
dum sent to employees
after NATO forces ended
their mission in support
of the Libyan revolution.
"It basically told people
in Benghazi ... if you are

attacked, you get your
'package' (the personnel
they are charged with
protecting) and you get
out," he said in an inter-

A senior intelligence
official confirmed that
the CIA officers on the
ground in Benghazi

responded to the diplo-
mats' call for help by try-
ing "to rally local support
for the rescue effort and
secure heavier weapons."
When it became "clear
that this additional
support could not be
rapidly obtained," the
team moved toward the
diplomatic compound.

Worker dies at

World Cup site

construction worker fell to
his death Saturday from
the roof of aWorld Cup
stadium being built in
the jungle city of Manaus,
marking the latest setback
to hit Brazil before it hosts
football's showcase event
next year.
It was the second death
at the Arena Amazonia in
less than a year, and the
third fatality in a World
Cup stadium in less than a
Two workers were killed
in late November when a
crane collapsed as it was

hoisting a 500-ton piece
of roofing at the Sao Paulo
stadium that will host
the tournament's June 12
opener. Last year, a worker
died at the construction
site of the stadium in the
nation's capital, Brasilia.
Brazil made headlines
a week ago because of fan
violence in the final round
of the Brazilian league,
and again earlier this
month after World Cup or-
ganizers announced that
none of the six stadiums
that had to be finalized by
the end of the year would
be delivered on time.

Campers help Amazon keep up

with holiday rush

(AP) In the hours
before President Barack
Obama arrived at a
Johannesburg soccer
stadium to honor Nelson
Mandela, the White
House staff was in the
dark on critical details.
Where would the
president and first
lady Michelle Obama
sit? When was Obama
supposed to speak? Who
else would be on stage
during the speech?
The result was an array
of confusion and security
risks that typically would
not be tolerated by the
Secret Service in the
United States. The situ-
ation showed just how
the Secret Service often
is at the mercy of foreign
governments to make
arrangements when the
president is overseas.
There were metal
detectors and X-ray
machines at the stadium,
but they were not used
on the initial crowds
streaming in for the
ceremony, according to
Associated Press report-
ers on scene.
Many people walked
through with little or
no screening. Inside
the stadium there were
few signs of the heavy
security that routinely
would accompany an
event with Obama and
other world leaders.
The VIP section was
where Obama and
dozens of other dignitar-
ies sat, including former
Presidents George W
Bush and Bill Clinton.
This area was protected
by a short pane of pro-
tective glass that covered
only those in the first row
of seats. Obama and his
wife were several rows
Large crowds were
allowed to gather in front
of where Obama sat,
with no visible security
When Obama made

his way to the stage to
deliver his speech, a
South African sign-lan-
guage interpreter stood
an arm's length away.
This man later described
himself as schizophrenic
with violent tendencies,
and he reportedly was
accused of murder 10
years ago, according to
the national eNCA TV
news station in South
Secret Service officials
say the South African
government was respon-
sible for the decision
to place interpreter
Thamsanqa Jantjie just
inches from some of the
most powerful people in
the world during a four-
hour memorial service.
"Program items such
as stage participants or
sign-language interpret-
ers were the responsibil-
ity of the host organizing
committee," said Secret
Service spokesman
Edwin Donovan. "For
the purposes of this
memorial service, this
would include vetting
them for criminal history
and other appropriate
records checks."
Brian Dube, a spokes-
man for South Africa's
Ministry of State Security,
declined to answer
questions Saturday about
what security measures
were in place at the
soccer stadium and
what sort of background
checks and screening
were performed on
Jantjie. Dube said those
issues are part of the
investigation into the
hiring and use of the
Donovan said
prearranged security
procedures were in place
Tuesday and agents were
"in close proximity,"
a standard security
practice wherever the
president is. He declined
to discuss specific securi-
ty details of Obama's trip
to South Africa.

UN: 2 peacekeepers killed, several wounded in Mali

DAKAR, Senegal (AP) -
A bombing killed at least
two U.N. peacekeepers
in Mali and seriously
wounded several others
in the troubled northern
city of Kidal, a spokesman
for the mission said
"For the moment, we
have tallied two dead
among the blue helmets
and several who are
gravely wounded, though
this is only an early
tally and may change,"
Frederic Fath, the mission
spokesman, told The
Associated Press.
An intelligence official
in northern Mali said
the dead included two
Senegalese peacekeepers.
He spoke anonymously
because he was not
authorized to speak to the
At the same time, at
least 80 Islamic radicals
carried out a second
attack, on a Tuareg camp
in the town of Teringuite,
also in northern Mali, kill-
ing two people, according
to the intelligence official.
He said that fighters
from the Movement for
Oneness and Jihad in
West Africa attacked the
camp on Saturday. He
said the group was led by
Abou Dardar, a com-
mander who was among
those who invaded and
held the famous city of
Timbuktu in northern
Mali in 2012. It wasn't
immediately clear if there
were casualties from the

second attack.
The back-to-back
assaults are the worst to
have rocked northern
Mali in recent weeks, and
come as France rushes
troop to the Central
African Republic, its for-
mer colony, where at least
600 have died in a week
of sectarian violence. The
French military deployed
in Mali, another ex-colo-
ny, in January.
In the Kidal attack,
the car packed with
explosives detonated in
front of a bank guarded
by the peacekeepers, the
intelligence official said.
The explosion blew open
the doors of houses in the
Abdallah Ag Ibrahim, a
resident of Kidal, said the
bank crumbled, a U.N.
armored personnel car
caught fire, and a nearby
school was in flames. He

said he saw four people

Kidal, located some
1,600 kilometers (1,000
miles) northeast of Mali's
capital, is where an ethnic
Tuareg rebellion began in
late 2011.
The French military,
assisted by African troops,
succeeded in chasing the
rebels from almost all
the areas they controlled,
except Kidal, which
remains at the heart of
the conflict.
Analysts had long
predicted that the al-Qa-
ida linked fighters who
controlled northern Mali
for 10 months last year
had not been defeated,
just dispersed by the
French-led intervention,
and are just waiting
for the international
community to look the
other way before staging

to tell if the attacks in

New mortgage rules likely to affect your next home purchase

(Special to The
Washington Post) If
you're planning to buy a
house next year and
unless you're in a position
to make an all-cash offer
- chances are you'll be
affected by some signifi-
cant changes occurring in
the mortgage application
process beginning in
Several federal agencies
are implementing new pol-
icies aimed at addressing
lax underwriting standards
that led to the housing
market crash more than
five years ago. The new
policies could play a role in
how much house you can
The policies require
lenders to better verify that
borrowers can afford the
houses they are seeking
to buy and can repay the
loans. Some are intended
to protect borrowers while

holding lenders more ac-
countable for their business
For instance, one set of
rules requires mortgage
services to provide
consumers regularly with
accurate information about
their loan balances and fix
mistakes quickly. The rules
also prohibit services from
starting the foreclosure pro-
cess until 120 days after the
borrower's last payment.
"By bringing back these
basic building blocks of
responsible lending and
servicing the customer, we
will improve conditions for
consumers seeking to enter
the market and for all those
who are still struggling to
pay down their existing
loans," Richard Cordray,
director of the Consumer
Financial Protection
Bureau, said in prepared
remarks made last week to
the Consumer Federation

of America.
"By making the mortgage
market work better, we will
build consumer confi-
dence and strengthen this
essential foundation of our
economy," he added.
Another big change
affecting the Washington
region is a Federal Housing
Administration (FHA) plan
to decrease the maximum
loan amount for borrowers
in this area beginning

FHA loan limit

The agency announced
this week that its mort-
gages will be limited to a
maximum of $625,500,
down from $729,750. The
FHAs new loan limit next
year will match the caps
for conventional loans
purchased by Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac.
The FHA said in a

statement that the agency
wants to reduce the gov-
ernment's role in mortgage
lending to borrowers who
are "underserved" -who
either are low-income or
have difficulty obtaining
loans. The higher limits
were put in as an emer-
gency measure in 2008 and
were supposed to last one
year but were allowed to
continue because of the
lack of private loans.
Borrowers who need
a loan of more than
$625,500 will have to get a
jumbo loan, which typically
requires a down payment
of at least 20 percent. FHA
loans are not only a little
more flexible in terms of
their qualification guide-
lines, but, more important
for many people, they
require a down payment of
just 3.5 percent.
"Switching on the fly
from a down payment of

3.5 percent to 20 percent or

Cunningham, vice presi-
dent of Home Savings and
Trust Mortgage in Fairfax.
"It could be a $100,000
difference in money

adds. "Not something most
people just pull out of the
couch cushions."

Safety rules

On Jan. 10, the
Consumer Financial
Protection Bureau will
implement a new set of
rules designed to address
predatory lending prac-
tices that spurred a wave
of foreclosures the past
five years. Authorized by
the Dodd-FrankAct, the
'Ability-to-Repay" regula-
tions are aimed at prevent-
ing lenders from approving
mortgages for borrowers
with questionable credit
scores and poor debt-to-
income ratios, and steering
them into adjustable-rate
loans or interest-only loans
with little or no money
The housing crisis
emerged in part when
rates on ARMs were
reset upward. Millions of
homeowners who were not
completely qualified for
their mortgages lost their
properties in foreclosure
because they could no
longer afford them.
The good news for
borrowers is that the
new rules will cap loan
origination fees they
will be no more than 3
percent of the amount
for mortgages of $100,000
and above. Currently, loan
origination fees are not
capped. However, to stay
competitive, most lenders
keep their fees low enough
to attract customers yet
high enough to make their
business profitable.


The rules establish a
standard for what the
government considers a

"qualified mortgage."
Risky mortgages nega-
tive-amortization, inter-
est-only or balloon-pay-
ment loans fall outside
the qualified-mortgage
Lenders will be required
to thoroughly verify con-
sumers' income, assets and
obligations or otherwise
risk a lawsuit from borrow-
ers who default on their
But while the regulations
are intended to benefit
consumers, some experts
say that, like the Affordable
Care Act, the changes may
lead to complications and
unintended consequences.
One example they cite is
a provision in the rule that
requires borrowers' debt to
make up 43 percent or less
of their gross income.
"People who are right
on the line of qualifying
right now may not qualify
in 2014" because of the
policies set by Dodd-Frank,
says David Zugheri, execu-
tive vice president of Envoy
Mortgage in Houston.
In his prepared remarks,
Cordray called it a myth
that the new standard
will prohibit lenders from
issuing mortgages to bor-
rowers who don't meet the
43 percent debt-to-income
ratio. Lenders, he said,
would still have flexibility
to make exceptions for
buyers with excellent credit
scores, significant assets or
extenuating circumstances
that make it difficult to
verify income.
This "particular claim
is wrong in three ways,"
Cordray said. "First,
lenders can also rely on the
standards for loans backed
by Fannie Mae and Freddie
Mac or federal housing
agencies. Second, smaller
local creditors can make
the same kinds of solid
loans they have always
made if they choose to
keep those loans in their
own portfolio, as they often
have done in the past.
Third, lenders can simply
use their own judgment
when looking at your ability
to repay, just as they always
have done."

Winston joins Weinke, Ward as trophy winners

Winston left voters no
choice but to give him the
Heisman Trophy. And like
every other Florida State

a blowout.
The quarterback they
call Famous Jameis
became the youngest
Heisman winner and the
second straight freshman
to win the trophy Saturday
night, earning college

football's most prestigious
individual trophy award
with a performance so
dominant even a criminal

* PREP WRESTLING: Captain Archer Memorial Tournament

North Port's Dacoda Flenard secures his arms around Venice's Bryce Balsinger during the Captain Archer Memorial Tournament on Saturday in Punta Gorda.

Bobcats claim team title

Pirates prove

it's quality,

not quantity

Port Charlotte High School
doesn't have a lot of wres-
tlers, but it showed Saturday
that the ones it does have are
not to be overlooked.
New Pirates coach David
Winger who coached
in Michigan for nearly 40
years before moving to
Florida this summer -
brought four wrestlers to the
Captain Archer Memorial
Tournament. Three of those
four, seniors Robert Warner
and Nick Dowling, and soph-
omore Gannon Abernathy,
placed sixth out of 16 wres-
tlers in their weight classes.
Warner, a 126-pounder
who came into Saturday with
a 20-1 record this season,
started the day by avenging
his only loss by pinning Fort

He is already reaping the
benefits of working with
Winger, who has him in
attack mode.
"He's a great coach, I've
actually improved a lot over
the time frame that he's

been here," Warner said. "He
brings so much knowledge."
When the two first met,
Warner introduced himself
by telling his new coach that
he was a defensive wrestler
who doesn't "shoot." In other
words, his strategy was never
to come after opponents,

Tripke thrashes way

to 106-pound title
PUNTA GORDA For the second
year in a row, North Port High School
won the team title at the Captain
Archer Memorial Tournament.
The Bobcats placed four wrestlers in
the finals and earned wins from three
of them.
The most dominant North Port
wrestler of the day, and perhaps the
most dominant from any team, was
106-pounder Anthony Tripke. The
junior ripped through his bracket with
three consecutive pins to reach the
final, where he beat Riverdale's Austin
Keene by technical fall.
Tripke finished second in last year's
tournament, losing in the final to
Venice senior Kyle Kelley.
"It's pretty big," Tripke said of his
title. "It's one of the biggest tourna-
ments in the area and winning it is
pretty amazing."
Tripke missed qualifying for states by
one match last year, and he is off to an
undefeated start this season at 17-0.

* SAILING: U.S. 2.4mR
Class Nationals





- Baseball legend Yogi
Berra may have coined
the witticism, "It's d6ja
vu all over again," but
the saying easily applies
to Saturday's first day
of racing in the U.S.
2.4mR Class Association
National Championships
on Charlotte Harbor.
The regatta, staged
by the Charlotte Harbor
Yacht Club, saw the
same four interna-
tional racers claim the
top four spots, in the
same order as the final
results of this week's
2.4mR Midwinter
Canada's Allan Leibel
and Bruce Millar were
1-2 after four races,
with Leibel winning
two of the first three
to jump to a three-
point lead over Millar.
Norway's Bjornar
Erikstad was third on
the strength of his win
in the second race and
Great Britain's Megan
Pascoe stood fourth.
One big difference in
the nationals was the
sight for the first time
of an American crossing
the finish line first. That

Florida State's freshman
quarterback Jameis Winston was
crowned the Heisman Trophy
winner on Saturday night. Let
the record reflect that The Hat
Trick (the online, during-the-
week version of Shore Lines at if
you're not reading it, why not?)
was among the first to support
Winston's candidacy on Sept. 3,
following FSU's season-opener:
Is it too early to start the
Heisman Trophy campaign for
Florida State quarterback Jameis
Winston? The true freshman
completed 25 of27 passes for
356 yards and four touchdowns
in the Seminoles'41-13 rout
of Pittsburgh. He also ran for
another score.
Just for reference, 2012 Heisman
Trophy winner Johnny Manziel
started off last season passing
for 173 yards (no touchdowns)

and rushing for 60 yards and a
score against a very good Florida
Ahead of pace, sure you could
say that.
By the way, if you're project-

* MLB:

Loney proves a good fit for Rays at first

The Tampa Rays extended
themselves in bringing back 1B
James Loney with a three-year,
$21 million deal that is the
largest given to a free agent in
Andrew Friedman's tenure.
But they had their reasons.
For one, what he does in
the field. Loney is an elite
defender, arguably among the
top handful in the game. He
was a finalist for the Gold Glove
award that went to Kansas
City's Eric Hosmer, and saber-
metrically tied for fourth in
the AL in defensive runs saved
(four) and was third in ultimate
zone rating (6.1).
For another, what he does
at the plate. Obviously Loney
doesn't have the power of a
classic first baseman, never
hitting more than 15 homers,
but the Rays rave about the
quality of his at-bats.
He had the highest

percentage of line drives last
season (29.8 percent of batted
balls) among all hitters who
qualified for the batting title.
He had the lowest strikeout rate
(1 per 7.7 plate appearances)
of all first basemen; only five
players hit as well (.299) and
fanned at a lower rate. He led
the Rays in hitting with runners
in scoring position (.310) and
with two strikes (.230).
With five right-handed hitters
in the everyday lineup (Yunel
Escobar, Desmond Jennings,
Evan Longoria, Wil Myers and
either Ryan Hangian or Jose
Molina), the Rays needed
Loney's lefthanded bat for
balance. (And Loney hit lefties
just as well, .299 vs. both sides.)
And though Loney, 29, is
somewhat quiet publicly, man-
ager Joe Maddon noted several
times he has a strong presence
on the bench and a good
personality in the clubhouse.
Loney's new deal validated
his decision to sign with the


Days until Tampa Bay Rays pitchers and
catchers report for spring training on
Feb. 14 at Charlotte Sports Park

Rays for $2 million last sea-
son, taking a cut from $6.375
million in a poor 2012 to get
the chance to play regularly
and rebuild his value. The third
year likely was of more concern
to the Rays than the $7 million
average, but with limited other
options that became the price
of doing business.
With Loney done and no
indication anything is close on
a David Price trade, the Rays
presumably will turn their
attention to filling out their
bench, having been connected

to a series of veteran infielders
including Jamey Carroll, Mark
Ellis and Kevin Youkilis. They
might add another arm to the
bullpen. And they still have
C Jose Lobaton to trade, and
possibly OF Matt Joyce.
Torn right ACL sidelines
Beckham: Rays infielder Tim Beckham will
miss a significant portion of the 2014 season
after tearing the ACL in his right knee.
Beckham, 23, the top pick in the 2008
draft, made his major-league debut Sept. 19.
Though he would have been a long shot to
make the opening day roster, he likely would
have seen action if the Rays needed depth or
had an injury to a middle infielder.
Beckham was promoted after a solid
season at Triple-A Durham, hitting .276 with
four homers, 51 RBIs and a .342 on-base
percentage. He was chosen by the Rays ahead
of Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez, Royals
first baseman Eric Hosmer and Giants catcher
Buster Posey, among other current major-
league stars.
The knee injury is the latest setback of
Beckham's career as his progress has been
slowed by inconsistent play and a drug-related

suspension. He is said to have been injured
working out, but no details were available.
Hak-Ju Lee, the Rays'other top middle
infield prospect, is recovering well from
surgery for torn ligaments in his left knee, but
his status for the start of the 2014 season is

tape, we'll go out there
and exploit it," quarter-
back Chad Henne said.
The Jaguars have done
that the past two weeks.
Running back Maurice
Jones-Drew took a pitch,
started right and then
pulled up and tossed an
8-yard touchdown pass
to college teammate
Marcedes Lewis. It turned
out to be a significant
score in the 32-28 victory
over Cleveland.
Four days later,
Jacksonville scored with
another wrinkle.
Rookie receiver
Ace Sanders caught a
backward pass near the
sideline a play the
rest of the team sold as a
screen took a few steps
toward the middle of the
field and lofted the ball
across the field to running
back Jordan Todman.
Todman hauled it in at
the goal line, putting the
Jaguars ahead 24-10.
Jacksonville held on to
win 27-20 over Houston,
the team's third consec-
utive victory and fourth
in five games since a bye.
And those trick plays have
been key to the last two.
The Jaguars went the
first 299 games in fran-
chise history without a
non-quarterback throwing
a touchdown pass. Then
they did it twice in as
many games.
"We are unique in some
things, I guess," Bradley
said. "That's OK with us.
We don't want to compare
to anybody else. I hope it
doesn't go away. I like that
part of our personality."
Buffalo, meanwhile,
has lost five of six. Rookie
first-round draft pick EJ
Manuel has been incon-
sistent and struggled on
the road.
The Bills also lead the
NFL with 44 sacks their
most since getting 45 in
2004 and nearly twice
as many as Jacksonville
(23). Mario Williams has
12, two shy of his career
high set in 2007 with
Houston. The Bills have
three others Jerry
Hughes, Marcell Dareus
and Kyle Williams with
at least seven sacks. They
could add to their total
against Jacksonville, which
has allowed 40 sacks.
The Jaguars also could
be without running back
Maurice Jones-Drew

(hamstring) and receiver
Cecil Shorts III (groin),
Both teams have
clinched losing records,
the ninth straight for
Buffalo, which also has
the NFL's longest active
playoff drought to 14
seasons. That's the 1lth
longest in NFL history,
according to STATS.

Storylines in play for Week 15:

After Denver's loss Thursday night,
four people were stabbed during a
fight in the parking lot. A man died and
three people were taken into custody
outside Arrowhead Stadium on Dec.
1. NFL games have reached a point of
unruliness (and cost) that locals I talk
to often choose to stay at home or go
to a local bar and watch. Unfortunately,
there's not enough security in the world
to stop intoxicated fools, which this
league has proven for decades.

Will there be a Lifetime original
movie about the Washington Redskins
drama? It's unclear if Redskins coach
Mike Shanahan is trying to get fired,
really trying to get fired or really,
really trying to get fired. Based on his
words from this week, take the latter.
Shanahan has benched QB Robert
Griffin III despite him being healthy.
At 3-10, the season is over for the
Redskins, as is any chance for them to
hold respect from other places in the
league. What a mess.

Speaking of RGIII and the Redskins,
Kirk Cousins is starting for the rest of
the season for Washington but doesn't
expect to keep the job next year. "I've
said it since I've been here and I'll say
it again, I do believe that Robert is the
franchise quarterback here,"Cousins
said. "He was drafted No. 2 overall. A
lot of picks were traded to get him.
Common sense would say that this is
his team, and I've never wanted to take
that away from him or do anything to
undermine his role'."

Green Bay Packers DT Johnny
Jolly makes his first return to Texas
since spending time in prison in his
home state on a drug conviction. He
was sentenced to six years in prison
in November 2011 for possession of
codeine in his native Houston. He was
released six months later and was
reinstated from a three-year suspension
in March, The 30-year-old made the
roster in training camp and is a starter
again,just like in 2008-09.

Adrian Peterson may play today
despite a foot injury in last week's loss
to the Baltimore Ravens. Head coach
Leslie Frazier has a lot to consider
when assessing Peterson, namely the
chances of retaining his job and how
to handle last year's MVP. Peterson said
late this week he plans on being ready
to go. "He's Superman;running back
Toby Gerhart told"As long
as there isn't any Kryptonite around, I
think he'll be alright."

The Seattle Seahawks are still in
prime position to take homefield
advantage in the NFC. Yet, the New
Orleans Saints haven't slipped away
after being blown out in Seattle. New
Orleans is 10-3 and goes to St. Louis,
a place that gave the Seahawks fits,
today. It also has to go to Carolina next
week before closing with Tampa Bay.

The Seahawks would be the No.
I seed awaiting the lowest seeded
winner from the wild card round.
That could well be the San Francisco
49ers, who would be the six seed
and a wild card. There's a chance the
wild card teams, likely Carolina and
San Francisco, will be better than the
division winners in the NFC North and
East. Detroit (7-6) leads the North and
Philadelphia (8-5) leads the East.

Harbaugh said. "But it
was cool. It was natural.
People were glad to see
him. He was glad to see
the guys. I had a chance to
see him, give him a hug,
and we talked for a little
bit. It wasn't a big deal."
Goldson insists his
heart wasn't left in San
Francisco, although you
could hardly blame him
for wishing he had never
left that other city by the
bay. In his first season
with the Bucs, he has en-
dured an 0-8 start, a knee
injury that forced him to
miss 21/2 games, two sus-
pensions (one overturned
on appeal) and three
teammates contracting
MRSA and he has only
one interception.
Meanwhile, the 49ers
arrive at Raymond James
Stadium today riding
a three-game winning
streak with a chance to
clinch a playoff spot.
"I don't regret my deci-
sion to come here at all,"
said Goldson, who played
in last season's Super
Bowl. "I think I'm in a
great place, and I'm happy
to be here. I'm going to
be here locked down for
a couple more years, and
I'm excited about it.
"The (knee injury) ...
was hard. And the sus-
pension was even harder.
It was like, 'What's next?'
Then you've got to get
back into that football
The Bucs defense has
demonstrated its ability
to dominate at times. It
is eighth in the league
against the run (103.7
yards per game) and
leads the league with 21
Goldson has been
pivotal in both aspects.
He's fourth on the team
in tackles with 56 and
has forced a fumble. And
although he has been
upstaged in the secondary
by rookie cornerback
Johnthan Banks, who has
three picks, his ability to
lead younger players has
been invaluable.
"What an intense,
intense competitor he is.
What a really bright guy
he is. He's really bright and
a good guy," Bucs coach
Greg Schiano said. "You
never know when you
meet a guy on a recruiting
trip. He seems like a
good guy. We all have our
best foot forward. But he
really is a good guy, a good
teammate, a guy who's fun
to coach.
"I think he's meant a lot
for our entire team. I think
he brought a leadership, a
sense of confidence, into
our secondary, into our
defense and, ultimately,
into our whole locker
room. He's a popular guy
on the team."
What bothers Goldson
is he has become the
poster child for all that
is wrong about tackling
in the NFL. He insists
he's not a dirty player,
although his collection
of penalties has at
least served to soil his

was fined $100,000. His hit
on Falcons receiver Roddy
White in Week 11 earned
him a one-game suspen-
sion and forfeiture of a
game check ($264,705).
"I remember being on
the good side of it, hearing
commentators, analysts
talking about how perfect,

how good, how I do it the
right way," Goldson said
of his tackling and hard
hits. "And all of a sudden
with the new (targeting)
rule, I'm a dirty player, a
nasty player, and I'm not
playing the game how it's
supposed to be played.
That's ridiculous."

Knicks pulled away in the
fourth quarter to beat the
Atlanta Hawks 111-106 on
Saturday night.

in a loss at Boston.

but rather to wait around
for them to attack and
counter off of it.
A little more than a
month into the season,
Winger has changed that.
"He's going after people
and taking them out of
their game," he said.
With the rest of his
wrestlers, Winger is
implementing a "winning
attitude" and pushing
them for all 21/2 hours of
practice to get them used
to working hard and not
letting up.
That attitude showed on
Saturday when Abernathy,
a 106-pounder, fell behind
8-0 in his consolation
semifinal match against
Gulf Coast's Harrison
Scudder. Abernathy took
Scudder down in the final
period, then put him on
his back and pinned him
to advance to the fifth-
place match.
"He's been wrestling
from start to finish every
match," Winger said of
Abernathy. "He's been go-
ing hard and that's what
we saw from everybody
today. That's all we're
asking for, we'll pick up
some technique along the
way and get ready for the
big dance at the end."
Although he brought
only four wrestlers to the
Captian Archer tourna-
ment, Winger has some
more in the works after
picking up a few football
players once the team's
playoff run ended.
"We've got that winning
attitude that was brought
to the room," Winger said.
"I just tell them, until they
learn some technique,
you're a defensive player
and it's fourth-and-1 and
they're trying to score
on you, don't let them.
They're in that mindset."
Port Charlotte finished
16th out of 18 teams on
Saturday, and the tourna-
ment gave the Pirates an
opportunity to face some
potential district and
regional foes.
"It just opens my eyes
to how much better I
have to get to be able to
compete," Warner said.
"Nothing really matters
until districts."

Time flies

It constantly amazes me the way
time flies by. When I was a kid,
it seemed like Christmas would
never get here. The time between
Thanksgiving and the greatest of all
days was an eon to a young David.
Those four weeks would be filled
with wishes and dreams of toys,
bikes and everything else that was
displayed in the Sears Christmas
Little did I know then that I would
eventually work for the company that
put out the catalog of dreams. I was
an avid reader of the descriptions
of every toy and game on the pages.
By the time Christmas arrived, the
catalog was worn and tattered. But
the time would eventually go by, and
Christmas would arrive.
As we get older, time speeds up.
Later on, as a Sears store manager,
I would start with ordering and
planning for Christmas in July. In
September, we were setting up the
toy department and the trim-a-tree
shop. In October, we would be
planning the personnel needs for the
holiday season and start the hiring of

Support group helps caregivers of Parkinson's patients to connect


Patients with Parkinson's disease
(PD) need support but Charlotte
County resident Kelly Gaylord be-
lieves that caregivers of PD patients
need support, too.
Earlier this year, she established an
alliance for that very purpose the
Parkinson's Disease Caregiver Support
Group. It stems from her experience
caring for her PWP the acronym
for "person with Parkinson's," which
is how the group refers to patients. In
Gaylord's case it's her husband, Pete,
who acquired PD at age 40. He's now
"He did a seminar back in May
that was very well attended, about 30
people came," Gaylord said. "I noticed
a lot of caregivers were asking a lot of
questions, and that there really wasn't
any support group in the area for
caregivers for people with Parkinson's.
I decided before the seminar that I
would do a sign-up sheet and see if
there was interest in creating one -
and there was quite a bit of interest."
She sent emails to those who signed
up, and the first meeting was held
at the end of June. Only four or five
people attended that one but at the
latest gathering November, atten-
dance swelled to about 20. And that
doesn't count the part-time residents
who will be arriving after the holidays.
The overall goal of the group is
to provide a place for PD caregiver
to share issues or concerns they
might be having, as well as struggles,
frustrations and successes. It pro-
vides a connective framework where
participants can also recommend
health care service providers to one
another, or make suggestions on how
to deal with situations they've already
"At our October meeting, we didn't
have a guest speaker," Gaylord said.
"We just went around the room and
everybody talked a little bit about
their PWP when they were diag-
nosed, how long they've had it, and
what's the No. 1 frustration they have
or what issue they're dealing with
that they can't seem to wrestle to the
ground. There was a tremendous

amount of sharing as we went around
the room."
She added that some of the partic-
ipants continue to reach out to each
other even outside of the meeting.
The PD support group meets
10:30-11:30 a.m. every fourth Friday
of the month at the Punta Gorda Isles
Civic Association, 2001 Shreve St.,
Punta Gorda. There is no charge for
admission, and the group is open to
all PD caregivers. More information
is available on the website www., or by calling
Gaylord at 941-637-6418.
On occasion, health care profes-
sionals are scheduled to give relevant
For the Jan. 24 meeting, speech/
language pathologist Mary Spremulli
will speak on new device interven-
tions used in the assessment and
treatment of the disease, followed by
voice aerobic exercise. PD specialist
Jeanne Csuy is scheduled for Feb.
28, and will discuss ways to motivate
PWPs to exercise and demonstrate
ways to get out of a chair, a bed, a
car, how to get up from the floor and
other activities of daily living.
According to the National Institute
of Neurological Disorders and Stroke,
"Parkinson's disease belongs to a
group of conditions called motor
system disorders, which are the result
of the loss of dopamine-producing
brain cells.
"The four primary symptoms of PD
are tremor, or trembling in hands,
arms, legs, jaw, and face; rigidity or
stiffness of the limbs and trunk; bra-
dykinesia, or slowness of movement;
and postural instability, or impaired
balance and coordination.
"As these symptoms become more
pronounced, patients may have
difficulty walking, talking, or com-
pleting other simple tasks. PD usually
affects people over the age of 50.
Early symptoms of PD are subtle and
occur gradually. In some people the
disease progresses more quickly than
in others.
"As the disease progresses, the
shaking, or tremor, which affects the
majority of PD patients may begin to
interfere with daily activities. Other
symptoms may include depression

Local woman picture of'true grit and perseverance'


For local resident Ayako Stidhams,
the lesson may be that the race is not
always to the swift, or the battle to the
As an underdog, she's forced to try
things never otherwise attempted.
Because she has one leg, she had to
learn to walk all over again. Physical
rehab experts say that walking on one
leg takes 80 percent more effort than
a person with two legs.
So, walking with the use of a
prosthetic limb, many times becomes
undoable. Patient's face overwhelm-
ing odds to get back to the normalcy
of walking. It takes true grit and
character to persevere.
Stidhams has that true character of
greatness and beauty. It's seen rising
up in the face of her loss.
Two years ago, she lost her leg to an
infection that started after a podiatry
visit. A mere knick by her toe nail fes-
tered and turned gangrenous. It was
a slow and painful process of saying
goodbye to a life known on two legs.
This was a life achieved by higher
education that brought her into the
teaching profession. For 25 years,
she taught school in the state of
Maryland. But at 81, she faced her
physician's dire commands of ampu-
tation above the right knee.
Through her invincible spirit, she
overcame adversity at Port Charlotte
Rehabilitation Center.
For months she practiced the art of
learning how to use her prosthesis.

Through all therapeutic efforts, she
eventually got back to her golf game
last March.
Fast forward to today, she's looking
at the possibility of losing her left leg
because of a recent mishap. She was
getting around in her kitchen using
her power wheelchair, and injured her
left foot and fractured her toe.
"It's not been easy sometimes
I want to give up," she said. Ayako
refuses to let any disadvantage rule
her circumstances. Her strength
comes from her beliefs. It's a mindset
that will allow her to once again place
one foot in front of the other.
Frank Stidhams, Ayako's spouse of
62 years said, when the going gets
tough, you can't feel sorry for your cir-
cumstances; you must laugh at life's
absurdities. That's one of Ayako's best
attributes. It's an indomitable force
that will lead her back to the golf
course. That's not surprising to Frank.
"Whatever she wants, she gets," he
Proof of his statement lines their
office wall. There are six official
plaques given to Ayako for each
recorded hole-in-one. Holes in one
are extremely rare. It takes hitting the
golf ball off the tee and into the hole
in one shot. Actuaries have calculated
the chance of an average golfer mak-
ing a hole-in-one at approximately
12,500 to 1.
It's also rare for older adults, who
usually have less strength and stami-
na, to get back to walking with the use
of prosthesis. Ayako not only learned
to walk she was able to golf.

Foods to sharpen your mental focus


If you think cognitive decline isn't
something that starts to happen until
after age 60, think again. A new study
from the British Medical Journal
showed that cognitive decline a
decrease in memory and reasoning
capacity can start to affect our
brains as early as 45. Give yourself
a mental boost now with these four
1. Leafy greens: A 2006 study in
Neurology showed that people who
ate two or more daily servings of
vegetables, especially leafy greens,
had the mental focus of people five
years their junior. Have a big salad for
lunch; serve some sauteed spinach at
2. Whole grains: Studies show that
eating a breakfast of whole grains

helps sustain mental focus better than
a morning meal of refined carbohy-
drates or no breakfast at all. Two to try:
whole-grain cereal with milk, or eggs
with whole-wheat toast.
3. Coffee: It might come as no sur-
prise that coffee can help your mind
feel sharper (goodbye, morning brain
fog), but did you know that coffee
affects men and women differently?
Men actually feel more alert more
quickly than women do after drinking
a caffeinated beverage, according
to research from the University of
In the study, men reported feeling
less drowsy after only 10 minutes and
sustained the mental boost for a half
hour. Women got a "kick" from the
espresso, too, but rated it weaker than
the men did. But women, it turns out,
are more influenced by the placebo
effect when it comes to caffeine. Just

'Running Chix' train for 5K, half marathon


All right 2014 is really, truly the
year you're going to run that half- or
full marathon. It's been on your
bucket list or one of your New Year's
resolutions forever. But there's one
small glitch. You've never done this
before, and you don't know where to
start. You've tried to get a friend to
run with you and she said she'll
watch you run on race day. Don't
worry. You're not going to have to do
this alone.
A 12- to 14-week running program
has started at Gilchrist Park, 400
W. Retta Esplande, Punta Gorda.
Starting at 7 a.m. on Saturdays, the
"Running Chix" will train for a 5K
(3.1 miles) or a half marathon (13.1
miles). Squads will meet weekly and
follow a schedule of Saturday morn-
ings and two additional running days
during the week.
The training programs will cul-
minate with the running of the
Suncoast Baptist Church Friend Day
5K on March 1 and the Sarasota First
Watch Half Marathon & Relay on
March 16.
Women's participation in both
half- and full marathons are up
considerably, according to Running
USA's 2012 report. In 1980, only 11
percent of marathon runners were
women according to Running USA,
a nonprofit group that promotes
long-distance running. Last year, that
number was 42 percent. Not only are
there more women running, they're
a little older. The median age in 1980
was 31. It's now 35.
Running has grown so much as
a sport for women, Running USA

Tips for running on a budget

Provided by

You don't have to spend a lot of
money to enjoy running. But, even so,
there are still ways you can save mon-
ey on your running habit. Check out
these tips for running on a budget:
*Buy old models of your favorite
running shoes. Like car dealerships,
running stores try to clear out last
year's models of running shoes when
the new models come in. The old
models are usually almost the same
shoe, but at a much cheaper price.
Some runners stock up on old models
when they go on sale. You can also
search the Internet for older models
of your favorite running shoes.
*Shop around for inexpensive
running clothes. You don't have to
spend a lot for good quality, technical
fabric running clothes.
*Plan your race schedule ahead of
time. Most races give discounts -
some pretty significant for early
registration. Sign up early for races
that you know you definitely want
to run, especially those that you run
annually. You'll save some bucks and
give your motivation a boost at the
same time.
*Make your running shoes last
longer. It's important to replace your
running shoes every 300 to 400 miles,
but getting new shoes every couple
of months can get expensive. To
make your running shoes last longer,

Nurse: Don't ignore

signs of heart disease


Heart failure, according to the
American Heart Association, affects
5.7 million Americans and causes
more than 55,000 deaths in the
United States each year.
Not only was Karen Wright privy to
those numbers, she could very easily
put a face on a great many of them.
For at least half of her life, Wright
had helped care for both men and
women suffering from some form
of heart disease. She could list the
symptoms as quickly as she could
name her daughters' favorite foods.
And yet for years, when it came to
her own health, the Fairburn, Ga.,
single mom and nurse practitioner
ignored her doctors and the warning
signs: shortness of breath and fatigue.
Now she is on the waiting list for a
heart transplant and adding her voice
to the chorus of women who've found
themselves in this awful place, hoping
their story will not only help raise
awareness of heart disease, but serve
as a warning to other women to pay
attention to their bodies and respond
Last year, Wright said, she could
no longer ignore the signs she had
turned a blind eye to for 10 years.
"I told my doctor, 'Whatever you
have to do, do it,'" Wright said.
So in March, Wright finally con-
sented to having a heart pump, or left
ventricular assist device, implanted to
help her heart beat more efficiently.
"It's not a permanent solution, but I
feel so much better," she said.
"There were times when I tried to
tell myself it wasn't what it was, but
I knew my fatigue had nothing to do
with lack of sleep," Wright said. "Still,
for some reason, I really was very
resistant to getting the LVAD. Looking
back, I'm glad the decision was made
for me." For most of her life, Wright
worked in a busy clinic and was very
active in her daughters' lives. She
could run up a flight of stairs without
Then without warning, she found
herself slowing down, struggling
even to breathe and feeling tired all
the time, classic symptoms of a sick
When she finally went to a doctor,
Wright said, she was diagnosed
with congestive heart failure. It was
November 2003. She was 42 years old.
"When I couldn't walk 30 feet
without stopping, I went to see my
primary care doctor who referred me
to the cardiologist," Wright said.
The moment he looked at her,
Wright said, he knew.
"Your heart is really, really weak," he
told her.
That doctor prescribed medicine
and suggested she make a follow-up
appointment in a few weeks, but
Wright never returned. She asked

rfMI've k 1 6Ae,14 W.4t/ IWh IX

around for someone who was a good
interventional cardiologist and found
one at Emory Saint Joseph's Hospital.
Tests showed Wright's heart was
functioning at about 15 percent of
its capacity. Doctors suggested she
get the LVAD, but Wright refused. She
hoped medicine and a pacemaker
would be enough to get the miracle
she needed.
"I still got tired a lot," she said.
"I had to pace myself." Six weeks
after surgery for the pacemaker, the
night before her youngest daughter's
high school graduation in 2009, she
suffered a stroke.
Then as Thanksgiving approached
last year, Wright was trying to take a
dish from her kitchen to her car and
couldn't make it.
"I had to call the ambulance I was
so short of breath," she said.
Thus began a series of hospitaliza-
tions. Wright finally had to quit work.
In March, doctors implanted the
LVAD, the bridge she needed to get to
a transplant.
According to the U.S. Department
of Health & Human Services, African-
Americans are disproportionately
affected by heart failure. There are
817 African-Americans awaiting heart
transplants nationwide, including 30
in Georgia.
Wright, who is Jamaican, is one of
Why? "Part of it has to do with the
prevalence of hypertension in the
African-American population," said
Dr. David Dean, heart surgeon and di-
rector of Piedmont Atlanta Hospital's
heart transplant and LVAD program.
Hypertension is so dangerous
because it also leads to more diastolic
heart failure, which occurs when the
heart can't squeeze enough blood out
to meet the demand of the body.
"Heart failure is really pretty prev-
alent, with hundreds of thousands
of new cases diagnosed every year,"
Dean said. "The degree of heart
failure can go from patients who take
medication to people who are about
to die and need transplant or heart
pump. It's a malignant disease; it will
take your life." At first, Wright couldn't
get a transplant because of pulmo-
nary hypertension.
Now that that's under control, he
said, she is an excellent candidate for
Dean said that African-Americans
like Wright make up 26 percent to
30 percent of patients transplanted
each year, but women only about 20
"We in the field don't really under-
stand why women are under-served,"
Dean said. "It's not like less women
have it." Wright knows this for sure.
Now she wants other women to know
as well, particularly minority women.
"I want to encourage women to go
to the doctor and don't ignore symp-
toms," she said.

Yogurt a solution to hospital infection?


In a medical system rife with
complex equipment and outrageously
expensive drugs, a Pennsylvania hos-
pital has turned to a cheap, low-tech
solution for one of modern medicine's
most challenging problems.
Holy Redeemer in Montgomery
County, Pa., is using yogurt the
kind you could buy at the grocery
store to fight C. difficile, a hospital-
acquired infection that has been
growing throughout the country.
After dietitians began encouraging
patients taking antibiotics to eat
yogurt, the infection rate fell by
two-thirds. Holy Redeemer has now
expanded the program to its nurs-
ing-home residents.
"We were really surprised by how
easy it was and how quick it worked,"
said Jeanie Ryan, a registered di-
etitian, who helped coordinate the
effort. "It was just so sudden and such
a big impact, that it was striking."
The Hospital & Health system
Association of Pennsylvania earlier
this year gave Holy Redeemer an
Innovation Award for the program.
Other hospitals remain skeptical.
Thomas Jefferson University Hospital
uses probiotics, or beneficial yeast
and bacteria, in pill form only in
clinically stable patients who must
take antibiotics for long periods.
Neil Fishman, associate chief
medical officer at the University of
Pennsylvania Health System, said
there was not enough science to
support the wide use of yogurt or
probiotics. They can be dangerous in
patients with compromised immune
He said the bacteria in yogurt were
not native to the human digestive
system and thus would not perform
like the normal flora devastated by

Fishman wondered whether other
measures helped reduce infection
rates at Holy Redeemer. "I doubt
strongly that a two-thirds reduction
is just due to eating yogurt," said
Fishman, who advises the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention on
infection control. And "I love yogurt,"
he said.
The most effective way to reduce C.
diff, he said, is to prescribe antibiotics
more carefully.
Barbara L'Amoreaux, a Holy
Redeemer spokeswoman, said there
were no other changes in patient care
in the year before the hospital asked
patients to eat yogurt.
In 2011, Holy Redeemer officials
became alarmed by the increasing
numbers of hospital-acquired C.
difficile cases. The bacteria cause
severe diarrhea and can be fatal. Holy
Redeemer had 75 hospital-acquired
cases in 2011.
The bug is particularly hard to kill
on surfaces, and the infection rate
did not improve despite isolation of
infected patients, education of the
staff, and a change in disinfectants.
The CDC says hospital cases nation-
wide have tripled in the last decade to
nearly 337,000. Most C. difficile cases
are related to medical care, but only
about a quarter show symptoms first
in the hospital, the CDC says. C. diff
infections cost at least $1 billion in
extra health-care costs annually.
At an infection-control committee
meeting at Holy Redeemer, a surgeon
suggested using probiotics against the
bug. While antibiotics are essential
for fighting infections, they also can
throw off the delicate balance of
bacteria in our bodies by weakening
both good and bad microorganisms.
Without the good bugs to keep it at
bay, C. difficile can take off and make
us sick.
Ryan and fellow dietitian Anne
Kathryn Bromm knew that some

FILE PH,.T,"..

hospitals were using probiotics in
granular form, but they liked the idea
of giving a food. Yogurt is popular, and
it has the extra benefit of providing
protein, vitamins and energy. While
some doctors for years have recom-
mended it to patients on antibiotics,
Bromm and Ryan could find little
scientific evidence on whether yogurt
would work in the hospital or which
brand would be most effective.
After comparing many brands, they
decided there was no good reason
to pick one over another. The one
they were already using Dannon
- contained three types of beneficial
bacteria: S. thermophilius, L. bulgari-
cus, and L. acidophilus. They decided
to start with it, expecting that they
might later need to switch to others.
They decided to suggest two six-
ounce servings a day to patients

taking antibiotics E)Dietitiaiii miet itli

Probiotic bacterium lessens severity of salmonella infections by hoarding iron

Provided by the

UC Irvine microbiologists have
learned how a probiotic bacterium
used to treat irritable bowel syndrome
can soothe gut bacterial infections
caused by salmonella, paving the way
for potential relief from foodborne
illnesses that affect millions of people
Manuela Raffatellu, assistant pro-
fessor of microbiology and molecular
genetics, and colleagues at UC Irvine
and the University of Washington
identified how a probiotic strain of E.
coli reduces salmonella colonization
by competing with this pathogen for
iron, an essential nutrient that salmo-
nella acquires in the gut in order to
replicate at high levels.

The researchers discovered that
the E. coli strain called Nissle 1917
acquires iron more efficiently than
does salmonella. As a result, salmo-
nella counts in the gut decrease when
Nissle is administered during infec-
tion. Study results appear in Cell Host
& Microbe.
'Although we focused on salmonel-
la, our findings suggest that this ap-
proach can be effective against other
gut bacterial pathogens that need iron
to grow," said Raffatellu, who's also a
member of UC Irvine's Institute for
Immunology. "By understanding how
these 'bad bugs' get nutrients, we can
further study methods to eradicate
Most people infected with salmo-
nella develop diarrhea, fever and
abdominal cramps 24 to 72 hours after

infection. The illness usually lasts four
to seven days, and the majority of
affected individuals recover without
According to the CDC, about 42,000
cases of salmonellosis are reported
annually in the U.S. Because many
milder cases are not diagnosed
or reported, the actual number of
infections is estimated to be between

Key factors can raise your insurance premiums


Actuaries at insurance companies
spend their entire careers looking
for tiny statistical nuances that can
predict the likelihood that someone
will file a claim and that can justify
charging higher premiums. Some of
the criteria are obvious, such as your
driving record for car insurance or
your medical history for life and health
insurance. But some are surprising.
Here are 10 unexpected rate boosters.
Each insurer has its own rules, so
it's important to shop around before
1.Your credit score: Auto-insurance
companies have found that people
with low credit scores are more likely
than those with high scores to get into
accidents, so they charge them more
when they can. That's another good
reason to pay close attention to your
credit score. (A few states, such as
California, don't permit insurers to use
credit scores when setting rates.)
2. Your home's claims history:
Insurers share information on home-
owners claims for up to seven years
through the Comprehensive Loss
Underwriting Exchange (CLUE). When
you apply for insurance, the company
looks at the claims history for your
home, even for the time before you
lived there. If the house has a history
of water-damage claims, for example,
it may be more likely to have future
problems and insurers will boost
your rate. You can check a house's
CLUE report either before or after you
buy it.
3. Your car's horsepower: You'd
expect a Porsche Carrera to cost more
to insure than a Toyota Camry. But if
you buy a six-cylinder Camry instead
of the four-cylinder model, it is usually
more expensive to insure. In general, a
four-cylinder car with moderate horse-
power is less costly to insure than a 6-
or 8-cylinder car. You can get a rough
estimate of annual insurance costs for
more than a thousand vehicles with
our new car rankings tool.
4. Your driving record: Your record
of moving violations can affect your
rates for life and health insurance in
addition to car insurance. Life insurers
are worried about a higher risk of
auto fatalities. More than two moving
violations in the past three years is a
fairly typical cutoff for the best rates,
said Byron Udell, CEO of AccuQuote.
Some insurers permit three moving
violations, but others allow only one.
And some health insurers will reject
you if you've had a DUI within the
past three or five years, said Keith
Mendonsa, of
5. Your colleagues: If you have health
insurance through work, the rates are
based on the average risk of the group
of employees. And the group's health
and age can make a big difference,
especially for small companies (this
will change in 2014 because of the new

Your phone is talking behind your back to your doctors


Your phone knows everything about
you how much you walk, talk and
what level of Candy Crush you're
stuck on but soon it could be
spilling secrets to your doctor.
More and more physicians are
prescribing apps that help track their
patients' illnesses through informa-
tion collected by their smartphones.
"(The trend) just seems to be
exploding," said Seth S. Martin, a
Pollin cardiovascular prevention
fellow at Johns Hopkins Hospital in
Baltimore. "With the widespread use
now of smartphones, it's a really excit-
ing opportunity to help people live
healthier lives."
Apps like and those de-
veloped by the Center for Behavioral
Intervention Technologies (CBITs)
at Northwestern University collect
data through smartphones and web
activity and relay that information to
health care providers without the
patient needing to lift a finger. This,
they argue, enriches the health care
process by integrating technology and
primary care.
This is most apparent with the app, which is currently invite
only it's being tested in larger
hospital systems before it expands
to the public and deals with a

small number of specific diseases like
diabetes and ulcerative colitis.
According to their website, Ginger.
io "works in the background to collect
data about your movement, call, and
texting patterns. Once the application
has gathered enough data to under-
stand your behavior patterns, we will
provide you with health insights and
These alerts range from condi-
tion-specific health tips to insights
into the patient's own health patterns.
"It forms an automated diary
of your life," said Anmol Madan,
co-founder and CEO of
"The idea is to provide support to
patients and families."
By collecting two forms of data
- nicknamed passive and active - attempts to paint as full
of a picture as possible from the
data collected by a person's phone.
The app asks patients to fill out
condition-specific surveys about
their symptoms and well-being (this
is active data) while also collecting
information from the sensors in the
phone regarding calling and texting
patterns as well location data (this is
passive data.)
This data is then sent to a patient's
primary care physician. They use the
collected data to monitor a patient's
day-to-day behavior, flare-ups and
unusual patterns in communication

- are you making longer calls?
Maybe not moving around as much
as normal?
This allows for faster and more
accurate intervention should a health
condition head south.
Similar to, CBITs works
to develop apps for smartphones,
websites, text messages and even
virtual reality.
"There's so many things that tech-
nology makes available to us," said
Jennifer Duffecy, associate director of
intervention development at CBITs.
Many of the apps in development
at CBITs involve mental health -
especially making sure people with
mental illnesses stay on their medica-
tion. One described by Duffecy dealt
specifically with antidepressants.
Patients often feel no immediate
effects when starting an SSRI a
common anti-depressant that chang-
es the balance of serotonin levels in
the brain and stop taking it.
The app from CBITs tracks whether
or not the patient took their medi-
cation adding an accountability
aspect while also tracking any
side-effects felt by the patient.
While their focus is mainly on
mental health, Duffecy said, other re-
search has looked at apps for insom-
nia, chronic pain, cancer survivorship
and various transplants.
CBITs is also developing an app
specifically to monitor and improve
veterans' ability to cope with stress.
The app is specifically tailored to
veterans with serious mental illnesses

who seek care in community-based
mental health agencies.
"The most effective way to use
(health tracking apps) is to integrate
these systems with others linking
information in real time with feed-
back that is designed by the patient's
physician or a specialist. But doing
this in a very reputable and patient
friendly manner," Martin said.
Martin and colleagues at Johns
Hopkins University plan to begin a
study later this year that uses smart-
phone apps and bluetooth data to
monitor patients.
However, in the deluge of
health-tracking apps available, few
have undergone any moderation to
ensure the validity and reliability of
the science behind the app, Martin
said. Few studies have been conduct-
ed that analyzed the effectiveness of
apps like that employ total
integration of technology and prima-
ry care.
"Hopefully the clinic of the future
will be very much app-based," Martin
said. "There will be some optimal
combination of app-based, home
based care with actual face-to-face
clinic visits. (But) right now it's way,
way too early to make any definitive
Most important, Duffacy noted, is
the need to ensure that people who
download any health related apps
actually integrate the technology into
their everyday life.
"Apps only work if people use
them," Duffacy said.

7 in 10 will need long-term care, ready or not

By Carrie Teegardin

Harry Baron had already lived
through a tough week this summer,
facing the reality that his wife of 67
years could no longer live at home.
Her memory issues were serious,
Baron learned, and she needed more
care than he could provide.
Baron, who for years ran a popular
deli at Phipps Plaza in Atlanta, sadly
accepted that Claire should move to
assisted living and found a beautiful
place not far from their home. His
sorrow turned to shock when he
presented his wife's Medicare card to
the staff.
"They said to me real quick we
don't take Medicare," Baron said. "You
don't take Medicare? I said, 'What is
this going to cost me?' And when they
told me, my knees buckled." What
they told him was nearly $4,300 a
month or more than $50,000 for a
year of care.
Almost every family has faced some
version of Baron's experience. The
health of a wife, father or aunt reach-
es a crisis point and suddenly the
family needs to know: What are the
options, and how do we pay for them?
The questions also pose a difficult
public policy dilemma for the nation.
As baby boomers age and as people
live longer than ever, many worry that
neither the family nor the government
is prepared for the coming tidal wave
of demand for long-term care.
Congress appointed a national
Commission on Long-Term Care this
year. The group issued 28 recom-
mendations this fall, but it couldn't
reach consensus about how to pay
for services. It's a tough and expen-
sive problem, but it's something the
country can't ignore: most families
will eventually face a difficult kitchen
table conversation about how to take
care of the most important people in
their lives.
Many families do not learn about
the costs of long-term care until
the crisis hits and many get the
sort of rude awakening that Harry
Baron experienced, said Jon Howell,
president and CEO of the Georgia
Health Care Association, an industry
group that represents nursing homes,
assisted living centers and companies
that coordinate home care across the
Seventy percent of people now
turning 65 will need long-term care
at some point during their lives. Only
a fraction of those who will need
care have long-term care insurance,
which can pay for services at home or
in a nursing home or assisted living
Such plans grew in popularity
during the 1990s, but sales have
declined in recent years as some
insurers exited the market, and many
of the remaining insurers have hit
policyholders with steep premium

When speaking to civic groups,
Howell said, he shares lots of key facts
that catch people off guard, including:
Medicare covers nursing home care
after a hospitalization, but at day 21
a co-pay requirement kicks in that
could cost up to $12,000 over the next
80 days of care.
To qualify for Medicaid, residents
must effectively impoverish them-
selves, spending all but $2,000 of their
non-exempt assets and also using
all but $50 of their monthly Social
Security checks to pay for their care.
Medicaid pays an average of $158 a
day in Georgia for nursing home care;
private pay prices are higher.
Medicaid doesn't cover assisted
living only nursing home care.
After a resident's death, Medicaid
can take the resident's home equity
and other assets in an estate to cover
the cost of care paid by the govern-
ment, although there are protections
for surviving spouses.
The requirements represent a harsh
reality for many once solidly middle
class people people who have
spent a lifetime working toward finan-
cial security who find they have no
option other than turning to Medicaid
to cover nursing home bills.
For many people who lived through
World War II and the Depression and
never seriously considered long-term
care insurance, it's a shock to see their
estates decimated when they were
sure they would at least pass on the
value of their family home to their
It's important, Howell said, that
more families understand this reality.
"Unfortunately, all too often, society
is focused on things like pop culture
rather than how we care for the
Greatest Generation and there is such
a lack of understanding of how it is
funded," Howell said.
At 88, Baron isn't interested in
slowing down. He still holds down
a part-time job in sales and has no
plans to retire. Always a star athlete,
he still plays tennis. He spends hours
every day with Claire. That's the way
it's always been. "Claire wants me
here and if she wants me here, I'll be
here," he said.
Since Claire's move, Baron has
also found a new mission: educating
anyone he sees about long-term care
financing. He didn't think about it
much until it happened to him, he
said. Now, he wants people to know
how the system works, and Harry
Baron is not a shy man.
"I think I have been put on this
earth now as a one-man emissary
from the guy upstairs tell people
what you are going through, because
you can probably help them," Baron
He wants people to understand that
Medicare doesn't cover the kind of
care his wife needs and he also wants
people to understand what qualifying
for Medicaid entails. Baron said he
relies mostly on a military pension

and both his and Claire's Social
Security checks to pay for her care. He
knows he's fortunate that he can come
up with the money, but he knows not
everyone is in that position.
"If you're on Medicaid, you don't
have anything left," he said. "It's sad."
He thinks the average person needs
to consider long-term care insurance.
He also thinks it might make sense for
the government to expand Medicare
or another program so that workers
could contribute part of every pay-
check to cover care down the road.
Baron isn't peddling a particular
solution, but he wants our nation to
seriously contemplate the problem
and he would even like to testify on
the issue before Congress. He thinks
his story could help policymakers
understand how important the issue
Some influential voices agree with
Baron. This month, Tom Daschle,
a former Senate majority leader,
and Tommy Thompson, secretary
of health and human services in
the second Bush administration,
publicly urged the nation to address
the problem. They pledged to form a
bipartisan group to seek solutions.
Part of the process will be helping
the public understand the issue.
"There is a lack of planning for re-
tirement in general," said Kathy Floyd,
state legislative director for AARP.
"When people think about that, they
think in terms of 'How much money
am I going to need to live?' and they
think about food and shelter even

medical. But the component that is
missing there is the support services
you most likely will need as you age.
The way our society is set up it's either
family and some friends (providing
care), or it's impoverishment and on
An AARP study found that fewer
people will be able to turn to family
members for care in the future. In
2010, there were 7.2 potential care-
givers between 45 and 64 for every
person age 80 and over. That will drop
to just 4.1 available caregivers in 20
years, the report found.
The number of Americans needing
long-term care is expected to more
than double by 2050, according to a
report issued in December by the U.S.
Long-term Care Commission. Meager
retirement savings, in general, mean
that people's ability to pay for care
will fall short of the need.
The commission found that long-
term care is changing through tech-
nology and more services available in
the home. In addition, more disabled
people want the opportunity to work.

Retired physician teaching about Alzheimer's his own


Dr. Daniel Winship and Jared
Worthington wandered through the
stacks at the Pritzker Military Library,
pausing whenever curiosity called.
"'Memoirs of an Army Surgeon -
1948,'" Worthington read from a book
he pulled from the shelf. "Can you
Their interest in medicine is mu-
tual. Worthington, 25, is a first-year
medical student at Northwestern
University's Feinberg School of
Medicine. Winship, 80, is a retired
physician with a particular interest in
medical education, including a stint
as dean of Loyola University Chicago
Stritch School of Medicine.
Now Winship has returned to that
field, but in a way he never could
have predicted.
He is teaching a medical student
about Alzheimer's disease his own.
Winship and Worthington have
been paired up in the Buddy Program
at the Feinberg School. The program
matches medical students with peo-
ple who have early-stage Alzheimer's
disease for a year of visits, outings
and, possibly, friendship.
The purpose is twofold: to give the
still-active patients an enjoyable and
productive activity and to let medical
students develop a deeper under-
standing of Alzheimer's by getting to
know someone who has it.
It is crucial that they gain such in-
sight, said Darby Morhardt, education
director of the Cognitive Neurology
and Alzheimer's Disease Center at
Feinberg, who created and runs the
Buddy Program.
The number of people with
Alzheimer's is steadily growing as the
population ages and more people
are in the years of prime risk of the
disease. By 2025, according to the
Alzheimer's Association, the number
of people age 65 and older with the
illness could be up by 40 percent. By
2050, the number could nearly triple,
from 5 million today to a projected
13.8 million.
"It's inevitable that primary care
physicians are going to be seeing
people with cognitive impairments,"
Morhardt said.
In the Buddy Program, she said,
the medical students learn how to
communicate with someone who has
those impairments. They also see that
early-stage Alzheimer's patients can
still function in many ways and lead

Study: Kids are less fit than their parents were


Today's kids can't keep up with
their parents. An analysis of studies
on millions of children around the
world finds they don't run as fast or
as far as their parents did when they
were young.
On average, it takes children 90
seconds longer to run a mile than
their counterparts did 30 years ago.
Heart-related fitness has declined
5 percent per decade since 1975 for
children ages 9 to 17.
The American Heart Association,
whose conference featured the re-
search, says it's the first to show that
children's fitness has declined world-
wide over the last three decades.
"It makes sense. We have kids that
are less active than before," said
Dr. Stephen Daniels, a University of
Colorado pediatrician and spokes-
man for the heart association.
Health experts recommend that
children 6 and older get 60 minutes
of moderately vigorous activity accu-
mulated over a day. Only one-third of
American kids do now.
"Kids aren't getting enough op-
portunities to build up that activity
over the course of the day," Daniels
said. "Many schools, for economic
reasons, don't have any physical
education at all. Some rely on recess"
to provide exercise.
Sam Kass, a White House chef and
head of first lady Michelle Obama's
Let's Move program, stressed the role
of schools in a speech to the confer-
ence on Monday.
"We are currently facing the most
sedentary generation of children in
our history," Kass said.
The new study was led by Grant
Tomkinson, an exercise physiologist
at the University of South Australia.
Researchers analyzed 50 studies on
running fitness a key measure of
cardiovascular health and endurance
- involving 25 million children ages
9 to 17 in 28 countries from 1964 to
The studies measured how far
children could run in 5 to 15 minutes
and how quickly they ran a certain
distance, ranging from half a mile
to two miles. Today's kids are about
15 percent less fit than their parents
were, researchers concluded.
"The changes are very similar for
boys and girls and also for various
ages," but differed by geographic
region, Tomkinson said.

P PH,.'T,".,
In this May 13, 2007 file photo, boys participate in 100 meter race during two-day World Athletics Day meet in Bangalore, India. An analysis
of studies on 250 million children around the world finds they don't run as fast or as far as their parents did when they were young. Research
featured at the American Heart Association's annual conference on Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013, showed that on average, children 9 to 17 take 90
seconds longer to run a mile than their counterparts did 30 years ago.

The decline in fitness seems to
be leveling off in Europe, Australia
and New Zealand, and perhaps in
the last few years in North America.
However, it continues to fall in
China, and Japan never had much
falloff fitness has remained fairly
consistent there. About 20 million of
the 25 million children in the studies
were from Asia.
In China, annual fitness test data
show the country's students have
become slower and fatter over the
past several decades.
Experts and educators blame an
obsession with academic testing
scores for China's competitive college
admissions as well as a proliferation
of indoor entertainment options

China's Education Ministry data
show that in 2010 male college
students ran 1,000 meters (yards)

than male students who ran a decade
earlier. Female students slowed by
about 12 seconds in running 800

There's no doubt eating organic
food can reduce your exposure to
pesticides, but the jury remains out
on whether organically grown food
is inherently more nutritious than
food produced using the full chemical
armory of conventional agriculture.
Now, new research from
Washington State University con-
cludes that when it comes to milk,
the organic variety really does have at
least one nutritional advantage.
In the first large-scale study to com-
pare milk from organic and conven-
tional dairies across the United States,
the researchers found significantly
higher levels of heart-healthy fatty
acids in organic milk.
The reason is that organically raised
cows eat more grass and less corn
and other grain-based feed than
their conventional counterparts, said
lead author Charles Benbrook, of
the university's Center for Sustaining
Agriculture and Natural Resources.
"In my judgment, the benefits from
this healthy balance of fatty acids in
organic milk is the most significant
nutritional benefit demonstrated so
far for organic food," he said.
Previous studies have suggested
that some organic fruits and veg-
etables contain higher levels of
antioxidant chemicals compared
with conventional produce. But most
FILE PHOTO major reviews of all the evidence have
found little nutritional distinction
between organic and conventional
IT foods.
IFT Milk has been the exception, with
) a few previous studies particularly
in Europe noting differences in fat
composition. The Washington univer-
sity study, which was partly funded by
the organic farm cooperative Organic
Valley, is the biggest so far, analyzing
nearly 400 samples of whole milk
collected over an 18-month period.
The results were published in the
journal PLoS ONE.
iOn average, organic milk contained
25 percent fewer of the omega-6 fatty
I acids common in fried foods, which
have been implicated in inflamma-
tion, heart disease and diabetes.
y... Organic milk was also 62 percent
richer in the omega-3 fatty acids be-
lieved to be at least partly responsible
for the healthful effects of eating fish,
beans and many vegetables.
Both types of fatty acids are essen-
tial for health, but many nutrition
experts believe the balance in the
typical American diet has become
skewed because of the heavy use of
omega-6-rich corn and soy oils in
MO processed and fast foods.



F, '-w

Most Americans consume 10 to 15
times more omega-6 fatty acids than
the healthier omega-3s, Benbrook
Drinking whole milk whether
conventional or organic is one
way people can help bring those
levels back into balance, Benbrook
said, with the new results suggesting
organic milk as the better choice.
The benefits could be most pro-
nounced among people predisposed
to heart disease, young children and
women of childbearing age, he added.
But other experts caution that
there's no evidence yet that shelling
out for more costly organic milk will
actually translate into health benefits.
"I'm sure the study is well-done in
terms of the analysis," said University
of Wisconsin food scientist Scott
Rankin, president of the American
Dairy Science Association. "But I
would want to see a greater ability to
connect the dots between this (fatty
acid) ratio and some great claims
about cardiovascular disease."
Though organic milk may be higher
in beneficial fatty acids, the levels
are still low, Rankin pointed out. "If
you have 60 percent more of a tiny
amount, does that have a nutritional
implication?" he asked.
An official at the National Dairy
Council, an industry association that
has until now insisted that there are
no significant nutritional differences
between organic and conventional
milk, said the new data are "very
interesting," and worthy of follow-up
But Jeff Zachwieja, senior vice presi-
dent for research, said that instead
of switching from conventional to
organic milk, a more effective way to
improve the fatty-acid balance in your
diet would probably be to reduce
consumption of foods and oils high in
The study, done in collaboration
with researchers from the European
Union, analyzed only whole milk.
Fatty-acid levels are lower in re-
duced-fat milk, and any related
benefits would be correspondingly
smaller, Benbrook said.
But dietary recommendations
discourage the consumption of whole
milk, to reduce calories and fat and
lower levels of "bad" cholesterol
associated with heart disease.
Some scientists say people
shouldn't be drinking cows' milk at
all. A recent viewpoint column in the
journal JAMA Pediatrics by research-
ers from Harvard Medical School
pointed out that humans evolved
without it, and that there are many
other ways to get the calcium needed
for bone health.

Arthritis and exercise


An exercise program can help
relieve pains and fatigue as well as
preserve joint structure and function.
Avoiding physical activity because of
arthritic pain can lead to muscle loss
and weight gain.
Many people with arthritis become
less active, believing that rest will
relieve their symptoms. Exercise
and physical activity have, in fact,
been found to be one of the best
treatments. Walking is especially
In addition, lower body resistance
training appears to reduce pain and
increase function, as does the loss of
excess weight.
Stronger muscles help support
painful joints and prevent future
disabilities. Therefore, exercise can
greatly improve joint mobility and
increase muscle strength and overall
bolster physical conditioning.
A program that may be recom-
mended by your doctor would
probably include weight-resistance
training, range of motion exercises
and endurance training.

Begin with low-impact, low-inten-
sity exercise. Walking, cycling, sta-
tionary bikes and use of the treadmill
are a good way to start. Exercising on
treadmills and stationary bikes en-
sure a level ground and help prevent
injuries with an unexpected change
of terrain.
Stretching is crucial. Stretch daily
with a pain-free range of motion.
Gently move every joint every day,
thus enhancing mobility of both
muscles and joints.
Stop any exercise that causes
pain. Range of motion exercise is
important. Holding a joint in the
same position for too long can cause
permanent loss of mobility and limit
the ability to perform normal daily
Range of motion and stretching are
also an important part of warming
up before engaging in weight resis-
tance or endurance exercises, or any
other type of physical activity.
Weight resistance exercises will
help develop stronger muscles and
will help keep weak joints stable,
comfortable and protect them
against further damage.
The foundation of endurance

training is aerobic exercise. Aerobic
exercise is any activity that increases
the heart rate for a prolonged period
of time. The benefits of aerobic
exercise are that it increases oxygen
rich blood supply to the entire body
and builds stronger muscles.
For joints that are chronically
painful, isometric exercise may be
preferable. Isometric exercise, also
known as static strength training, in-
volves muscular actions in which the
length of the muscle does not change
and there is no visible movement of
the joint.
Isometric exercises can be used
for general strength training and for
rehabilitation; they enable muscle
building without placing undue
stress on the joint.
Always check with your doctor
about which type of exercise pro-
gram is best for you. At that time, you
and your physician can develop a
balanced program of physical activity
to reduce the damaging effects of

'Profoundly disturbing' findings remind us that we're hardly BPA-free


These days the baby aisle shelves
are lined with products proudly
announcing: "BPA-free." As a mom
and a consumer, this is reassuring.
BPA (bisphenol A), a chemical used in
the production of plastics and many
other products, has been linked to
a variety of health problems such as
reproductive disorders, diabetes and
cardiovascular disease. A 2003-2004
national health survey by the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention
found BPA in more than 93 percent of
2,517 urine samples from people age 6
and older.
In 2008, the Food and Drug
Administration stated that BPA was
safe for use in food-related materials
such as plastic food containers and
the linings of food and beverage cans,
including containers for liquid infant
formula. Last year, the FDA ruled that
BPA could no longer be used in the
manufacturing of baby bottles and
sippy cups; this action came after the
chemical industry and major manu-
facturers had abandoned the use of
BPA in those products.
But the chemical is found in many
other common items: medical devices,
dental sealants and compact discs, to
name a few. Even paper receipts from
the grocery store and ATM machines
often contain BPA. In short, it's pretty
hard to avoid the chemical.
In the past few years, the FDA has

expressed greater concern about
BPA. In 2009, the National Institutes
of Health launched a $30 million,
five-year program in collaboration
with the FDA and the CDC to examine
long-term health outcomes associated
with developmental exposure to BPA.
Research from this effort will be pour-
ing out over the next few years. But the
studies already emerging continue to
add to the evidence that the safety of
BPA is highly uncertain.
These and many other studies have
converged on a central message: Even
at low levels and particularly during
prenatal development and early
childhood, exposure to BPA known
to mimic the hormone estrogen can
have subtle but detrimental effects.
When chemicals such as BPA mimic
hormones, it leads to what's called
endocrine disruption. "The effect is
not necessarily toxic in the traditional
sense," said Sarah Vogel, director of the
health program at the Environmental
Defense Fund and author of "Is it
Safe? BPA and the Struggle to Define
the Safety of Chemicals," but it is a
Hormonal signals work the way a
lock and key work. We have receptors
(the locks) that receive signals from
hormones (the keys). "BPA is almost
like a little master key because it can
fit into many of these little locks that
are in your body and in your cells,"
said Emilie Rissman, a behavioral
neuroendocrinologist at the University
of Virginia.

Rissman and other researchers are
finding that when humans and other
animals are exposed to BPA during
critical developmental windows such
as in the womb and in infancy, the
chemical can scramble cellular signals
and leave lasting biological effects.
For instance, a 2012 study found that
when female rhesus monkeys were ex-
posed to low doses of BPA during their
second or third trimesters of pregnan-
cy, the chemical caused defects in egg
formation in the offspring. In other
studies of the same rhesus monkeys,
researchers found abnormalities in the
development of other organ systems
including the brain, lungs and repro-
ductive tract following prenatal BPA
BPA has also been linked to obesity
and Type 2 diabetes.
Researchers have also found that
newborn rats that were exposed to low
doses of BPA for a short period had
a significantly higher risk of prostate
cancer (an estrogen-induced cancer)
later in life. "It's as if early life exposure
to BPA programmed a memory in
the prostate gland," said Gail Prins, a
physiologist at the University of Illinois
in Chicago who led that research. In
soon-to-be published studies, Prins's
group has found nearly identical
results with human prostates created
from stem cells and exposed to BPA
during development.
Prins's work and that of others is
finding that BPA is causing alterations
at the level of the epigenome the

modifications, or tags, that tell genes
when to turn on and off. For instance,
a study published this year found that
BPA disturbs the epigenetic program-
ming of gene expression in the brains
of mice.
Most concerning, recent studies
suggest that these epigenetic changes
may be heritable between generations.
Rissman and her colleagues have
found that low-level exposure to BPA
in pregnant mice suppresses gene
expression of two proteins that are
important in regulating social behavior
- oxytocin and vasopressin and
alters social behaviors in the fourth
generation (the great-great grandchil-
dren) of the exposed mice. The impli-
cations of Rissman's work are "pro-
foundly disturbing," said Pete Myers,
chief scientist at Environmental Health
Sciences, a nonprofit research organi-
zation in Charlottesville, Va. The levels
of BPA that Rissman is experimenting
with, he noted, are in the same range
as those found in most people.
We can reduce our BPA exposure
by making choices such as opting for
electronic receipts, using fresh and
frozen vegetables rather than canned,
choosing glass and stainless steel
containers and not microwaving food
in polycarbonate plastic containers.
(The heat in a microwave can cause
plastic to break down, allowing BPA
to leach into food or liquids.) Still, the
chemical is all around us, and there is
controversy around whether current
replacements are any safer.

New app measures battery life for brain stimulation patients


For people with neurological disor-
ders who use deep brain stimulators,
a low battery can mean the return
of mentally and physically crippling
symptoms. Help is now just a smart-
phone away.
The UF Health Center for
Movement Disorders and
Neurorestoration has developed an
iPhone and Android app for patients
who use deep brain stimulators, or
The app, released this month,
enables clinicians and patients to
measure the battery life left in their
DBS devices. This is good news for
the more than 100,000 people world-
wide with implanted deep brain

"During the past several years, we
have implanted nearly 1,000 of these
devices at UF Heath and have stud-
ied short and long-term benefits and
side effects," explained the center's
co-director, Dr. Michael S. Okun. "In
some cases, battery depletion could
lead to rebound of motor symptoms
like tremor or dystonia, but in other
neuropsychiatric conditions, it could
lead to suicide attempts or other
devastating consequences."
Okun, University of Florida medical
student Mike Montuno and area high
school student Andrew Kohner stud-
ied the relationship between battery
depletion and symptom recurrence
as part of a summer research project.
Their work culminated in a paper
published online in PLOS ONE, a
peer-reviewed, open-access journal.
UF medical student Kaihan Fakhar
also published a follow-up paper on
the site proposing an algorithm to
avoid the DBS battery-related issue.
"We wanted to develop a simple
tool and put it in the hands of
physicians and patients," Okun said.
"During a doctor's visit, the clinician
can show the patient which are the
simulation settings on the device. In

less than a minute, they can check
the battery levels and schedule
a pre-emptive battery change, if
necessary, before re-emergence of
bothersome and potentially devastat-
ing symptoms."
The new app provides patients
and their families with a new level of
comfort and ease.
"I can get up-to-date information
on the battery life for Austin, any-
time and anywhere," said Michele
Streitmatter, mother of Austin
Streitmatter, a patient of Okurn's
with dystonia. "I don't have to worry
about where we are or interrupt his
schedule; I will know exactly when I
need to make arrangements. This will
give Austin a sense of control over his
dystonia, which means the world to
The app was developed in collab-
oration with James Oliverio and Reid
Perkins-Buzo, programmers at the
UF Digital Worlds Institute. It can be
purchased online at the Apple's App
Store and Google's Android Market
by searching for DBS BE, deep
brain stimulation or DBS Battery
Estimator/calculator. The app is
compatible with Android, iPhone,
iPod Touch and iPad.

Therapy via iPad aims to help children with cochlear implants


One moment, Lucile Ross, sitting in
a highchair, is happily chomping on
a fistful of Cheerios. The next, she's
grabbing her ear, looking up wide-
eyed in surprise at the grownups in
the tiny room.
Lucile, 1, who is severely hearing
impaired, obviously just heard
"That was beautiful," said her hear-
ing therapist and teacher, Sharon
Nutini. "That was the response that
we wanted. She immediately reached
up." Soft laughter, full of joy and
relief, erupted from Lucile's mother
and father.
The four were crowded together in
a small office one day last summer,
about a month after a Stanford
otolaryngologist had conducted
surgery to embed a cochlear implant
into each of the girl's ears at Lucile
Packard Children's Hospital.
That day, Lucile began her journey
to learn how to hear and speak.
Her parents, Lizzie and Lyle Ross,
captured the moment the implants
were activated on video to share with
family. But they knew it was just a
first step, not an overnight cure, and
that their help would be key to their
daughter's success.
Lucile is one of about 17 other
hearing-impaired toddlers from
across Northern California from
Salinas to the Oregon border to
participate in a new "teletherapy"
program called BabyTalk, a col-
laboration between the Stanford
School of Medicine's Department
of Otolaryngology and the Jean
Weingarten Peninsula Oral School for
the Deaf in Redwood City.
The program is designed to teach
children under the age of 3 how to
use their newly implanted cochlear
devices to learn how to listen and
speak, regardless of where they live
or whether their families can pay for
the therapy.
Every Friday since her cochlear
implants were activated, Lucile
and her family members have been
holding therapy sessions over an iPad

from their home in Marin County to
learn how to interpret the strange
new sounds Lucile is hearing. And
she's been making progress.
"Getting an implant is the easy
part," said Dr. Nikolas Blevins, the
Larry and Sharon Malcolmson
Professor and a cochlear implant sur-
geon. Blevins is part of the BabyTalk
team, which also includes a Stanford
audiologist and a social worker, in
addition to the teachers like Nutini
from the Weingarten School.
"The question is, what are you go-
ing to do with it once you've got it?"
Blevins added. "Without follow-up
education and therapy, it's not a
useful device. The patient will not
develop speech."
For Lucile's mother and father,
the decision to outfit their youngest
daughter with a cochlear device
came after her hearing deteriorated
to the point that she was almost
completely deaf in both ears. The
couple first discovered that she had
hearing loss shortly after her birth.
A hearing test revealed that Lucile
was born with profound loss in
one ear and mild loss in the other.
Doctors couldn't pinpoint a cause,
but the hearing loss wasn't severe
enough then to warrant cochlear im-
plants. Instead, she got hearing aids.
But by 8 months, her hearing loss
had progressed, and at 10 months
her parents scheduled surgery.
"We'd heard so many success sto-
ries," Lizzie Ross said. "Just knowing
that she would have the opportunity
to hear and develop speech at a
young age we knew it was the
right thing for us."
A cochlear implant is an electronic
device. One part includes electrodes
that have been surgically implant-
ed in the inner ear; another part,
which sits outside the ear, includes a
It can help the profoundly deaf
and severely hard of hearing learn to
listen and speak, and is particularly
successful if implanted prior to the
age of 3. The first three years after
a child is born are the most critical
for the development of speech and

Postmenopausal estrogen decline largely unrelated to changes in cognition, mood


A new study led by a Stanford
University School of Medicine re-
searcher shows that decreased estro-
gen levels after menopause are largely
unrelated to changes in cognitive
ability and mood.
The study did find, however, a
possible link between levels of anoth-
er hormone progesterone and
cognition among younger postmeno-
pausal women.
The research is the first to investi-
gate associations between sex hor-
mones and cognition in both younger
and older postmenopausal women,
as well as to determine whether the
hormones affect women differently
based on their age and how much
time has elapsed since they reached
The work helps clarify the role
of hormones in age-related brain
disturbances, lead author Dr. Victor
Henderson, professor of health
research and policy and of neurol-
ogy and neurological sciences, and
his colleagues note in the study,
published online Nov. 25 in the
Proceedings of the National Academy
of Sciences.
Estrogen, the main sex hormone
for women, plays a crucial role in
a woman's reproductive cycle and
overall health. After menopause, the
depletion of ovarian follicles leads to
a permanent reduction in a woman
levels of estradiol (the predominant
estrogen before menopause), estrone
(the predominant estrogen after) and
progesterone, another hormone in-
volved in the menstrual cycle. Several
studies have examined the association
between hormone concentrations
and cognition, but results have been
Some researchers have speculated
that the effect of estrogen on cognitive
aging might differ depending on when
hormone therapy takes place. "Some
effects might be more beneficial for
younger postmenopausal women
closer to the time of menopause than
for older postmenopausal women,"
Henderson said of the so-called
"critical-window" hypothesis.


For their study, Henderson and
his colleagues analyzed data on 643
healthy postmenopausal women who
were part of the ongoing EarlyVersus
Late Intervention Trial With Estradiol.
The women, none of whom were on
hormone therapy, ranged in age from
41 to 84.
They were sorted into two catego-
ries: those who had gone into meno-
pause less than six years previously,
and those who had gone into meno-
pause more than 10 years previously.
The researchers gave the women a
series of neuropsychological tests to
gauge their memory and overall cog-
nition. Then, the researchers assessed
them for depression and measured
their levels of estradiol, estrone,
progesterone and testosterone.
"We viewed the availability of
hormone levels as an opportunity to

test one aspect of the critical-window
hypothesis especially since we had
two fairly large samples of women,"
Henderson said.
Based on the critical-window the-
ory, along with results of past animal
studies showing that the timing of
estradiol replacement affects memory,
Henderson said he and his colleagues
had hypothesized that higher levels of
estradiol would be positively associ-
ated with memory performance in
women who had experienced meno-
pause more recently but not those
who had experienced it longer ago.
"Instead, we found no significant
link positive or negative in either
group," he said.
Henderson added that the findings
don't "necessarily mean that estrogens
are irrelevant to cognition, since we
have no way of measuring estrogen
directly at the brain level. But they
imply that boosting blood levels of es-
tradiol or estrone even in younger
postmenopausal women may not
have a substantial effect on cognitive
skills one way or the other."

unrelated to verbal memory, executive
function or overall cognition, or to
mood, the researchers found, with
one exception: Higher progesterone
levels in younger postmenopausal
women were positively associated
with better memory and global
"This finding has not been pre-
viously reported and needs to be
confirmed," Henderson added.
The study's strengths, the authors
wrote, include "the large sample size
for both early and late postmeno-
pausal women, the examination of
multiple sex hormones in the same
population, and the use of a compre-
hensive neuropsychological battery
that allowed for the assessment of
different cognitive domains."
Henderson's co-authors are at the
University of Southern California,
including Dr. Wendy Mack, professor
of biostatistics, and Dr. Howard Hodis,
professor of medicine. The work was
funded by the National Institutes of
Health (grants R01AG024154 and
P01AG026572) and the Robert E. and

Safe driving for senior citizens


For many of us, driving is an
important part of our lives, allowing
us to be independent. We depend
on driving for work or volunteer
activities, running errands and social
engagements driving connects
us to our community. However, as
we age, our ability to drive safely is
affected by changes in our physical
and mental condition. Being aware
of these changes and knowing how to
respond is important for safe driving.
Charlotte Regional and Peace River
Regional Medical Centers' Senior
Extra program would like to share
some tips to keep you and others safe
on the road.
When it comes to safe driving,
self-awareness is important. When
you're able to honestly assess your
driving ability, you can adjust your
habits to stay safe on the road.
The American Occupational
Therapy Association recommends the
following tips for older drivers con-
cerned about driving safety:
*Get a checkup. Have a physical
exam to identify any changes that
could affect your driving, including
medications and other factors. If
you have any physical limitations
that could affect driving, talk to your
doctor about working with an occu-
pational therapist to explore adapta-
tions to enhance safety.
*Ensure your car "fits" you.
Attend a free CarFit event in your

assessment, occupational therapy
practitioners use a 12-point checklist
to ensure your car is properly adjust-
ed to you, including the positioning
of the seat, steering wheel, mirrors,
head restraints, and more. Visit www. for more information and
to find an event near you.
*Take a driving self-assessment.

driving ability.
drivers-65 to identify your strengths
and weaknesses and get suggestions
for improving your driving.
*Stay active. Being physically fit en-
sures you have the strength, flexibility
and coordination required for driving.
Whether it's walking, swimming, yoga
or another activity, staying active
benefits your overall health and
"People 60 and older should see
an eye doctor once a year to check
for cataracts, glaucoma, macular
degeneration and other age-related
conditions that can affect driving
ability," said Dr. Thomas Noone,
market medical director for Charlotte
Regional and Peace River Regional
Medical Centers.
"If you wear glasses, make sure your
prescription is up-to-date and you
always have them with you when you
drive. If need be, buy a special pair
to keep in your car so you're never
without them."
Whether you want to drive less or
are looking for alternatives to help
someone you know who no longer
drives, there are various transporta-
tion options available. Arrange rides
with neighbors or friends or consider


The new helpline, serviced by
MedicareCompareUSA, is staffed by
licensed Medicare insurance special-
ists who provide unbiased assistance.
Helpline representatives begin the
process by identifying Medicare plans
accepted by an individual's physi-
cians and hospital, including regional
and national Medicare Advantage and
Medicare supplement plans.
They can provide plan compar-
isons, help determine the most

offering to trade services such as
tutoring a student, babysitting, or
housesitting for a neighboring family
- in exchange for rides. Find out
what's available in your community
by checking with the local senior
center or local Area Agency on Aging.
Alternate ways to get around could
*City transportation such as buses,
trams and subways.
*Taxis and personalized driver
*Shuttle buses offered by churches,
senior centers, medical facilities, and
retirement communities.
When considering costs for alter-
nate transportation, remember to fac-
tor in the savings of costs associated
with owning and maintaining a car,
such as insurance, registration and
parking. In many cases, these options
are more convenient and allow you to
sit back and enjoy the ride stress-free.
In order to maintain safe driving
skills, it's important to be aware of
any changes that can affect your
ability to operate a car safely. Just
because you may have limitations
doesn't mean you can't be indepen-
dent. Whether it's talking to your
doctor about your concerns, pursuing
adaptations for your car, or taking
advantage of alternate transportation
options, you can continue to do the
things you love.

Dressing for the holidays is usually a
spirited tug-of-war between practicality
and whimsy. And thanks to the daily grind,
practicality typically has more muscle.
On one hand, it's a special time full of vis-
its and visitors. You want to look nice. You
want to looks if you've been sprinkled
with holiday cheer or at the least you don't
want to be mistaken for Scrooge. Holidays
are the time for sparkle and shimmer.
But on the other hand, you've probably
still got things to do. Children to entertain
or care for, meals to prepare, desserts
to adorn, dishes to wash, decor to hang
and myriad chores that don't magically
disappear when the holidays roll in.The
last thing you want to do is fret with your
wardrobe. Or feel "too precious"to get
things done.
Holiday dressing is much more than the
holiday office party or charity gala. It's a
lot of homespun events, and it's not just
customary to inject a little winter fancy into
your attire it's a great way to keep you in
the spirit. And believe it or not, studies that
say that kids are better behaved when they
are well-dressed. But don't expect a bow tie
orflouncy dress to work miracles.
At least the photo ops will be well-styled.
Holiday wardrobe suggestions:
Don't be afraid of winter white.
You might want to pick a day when your
activities are lighter and you're doing more
visiting, but it's a great breath of fresh air
that will lift spirits. And just to ease your
mind, keep a Plan B on standby.
Do embrace some shimmer. There
are great fabrics with a hint of metallic that
speak volumes without being difficult to
Do dress up your legs. Yes, there's a
high probability that the lace, polka dot,
jewel toned or stripped leg wear you're
considering will be ruined by a snag,
but there's an even higher probability of
compliments and the desire to twirl.
Don't sacrifice comfort. A slim fit dress
shouldn't be stiff or high maintenance. Opt
for knit that won't wrinkle. And if you do
invest in shapewear don't buy the smallest
size you can wrangle into after 10 minutes
of tugging a size or two up can still

Don't let finances add to your holiday stress


With the holiday season in full

sometimes be as much of a challenge
as watching your waistline. Despite
signs of an improving economy,
consumers have identified managing
spending at the top of their holiday
stress list, according to a recent poll
conducted by Ally Bank, Member

"The real key to keeping your ex-
penses in line during the season is to

tainment to charitable donations
and tips for service providers," says
Diane Morais, an Ally Bank executive
in charge of deposits and lines of
business integration.
While it may be too late in the
game to start saving for this season,

consumers should be thinking of
their financial goals for 2014, if they
haven't already. When it comes to
saving money, every little bit counts

would be to establish a goal for next

Pet gifts sure to get two paws up


Go ahead and admit it. On your gift list
- tucked after the children, spouse or
best friend, but before your least-favorite
aunt or neighbor is a note to pick up
something for your favorite feline and
the best dog on the planet.
Laurie Taylor, a pro from PetSmart, says
you're in good company if you're shop-
ping for your furry friend this season.
Not only are we buying toys for our cats
and dogs, we're buying them for pets not
even under our own roofs: Almost half of
all pet parents buy gifts for pets belong-
ing to their friends and relatives.
"Pets have a special place in our lives,
and pet parents like to express their per-
sonalities through their pets'," says Taylor,
vice president of dog and cat hardgoods
for PetSmart. "That's why so many pet
products mirror human trends."
As cold weather sweeps the nation,
snuggly beds, sweaters and coats are
always top sellers, she says. And if they're
tugging off that adorable sweater when
your back is turned, now you'll be able to
catch them in the act.
New gadgets allow you to keep an
eye on your pup when you're away, so if
there's any question about which kitty
clawed up the sofa, or whether the pug
or the retriever chewed up your best
leather shoes, the mystery is solved.

But be careful about buying your pup
jerky-style treats imported from China,
says KC Theisen, director of pet care
issues for The Humane Society of the
United States.
"Hundreds of pets have been sickened
and some have died of a still-undeter-
mined cause as a result of these treats,"
Theisen says. "The FDA and veterinarians
are racing to find and eliminate the
cause, but dried meat and fruit treats
should be avoided."
As should plush, stuffed toys that aren't
well constructed, Theisen says.
"Look for play toys made of durable
materials that are specifically for pets,
with no add-ons like plastic, bells, or
fringe that can be chewed off and
swallowed accidentally. No stuffed Santa
or rawhide reindeer is worth the risk of
an upset stomach or worse this holiday
If your gift to a loved one this year is
a cat or a dog, the American Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has
a message.
"If you're bringing a pet into your
home this holiday, please make adoption
your first choice'," says Laurie Beacham,
senior director of strategy and campaigns
for the ASPCA.
Most pet store puppies come from
mills, she adds. Dogs in these large-scale

breeding operations often live in over-
crowded, unsanitary conditions. And, if
you're looking for a gift for a pet-lover,
she has a final suggestion.
"You can give a vital gift to your local
shelter by donating money, supplies or
volunteering/' Beacham says. "This way,
you and your family can not only give
a gift to your own pet, but many, many
more animals who aren't as fortunate."
But if you're eager to give Spot or Fluffy
a new gift, go ahead and indulge yourself
- and them.
"Pet parents get excited finding that
perfect new toy, treat or festive sweater
for the holidays,"/'Taylor says."And your
pet is always appreciative so you're
sure to get that tail wag or kiss every pet
parent loves."

Cures for common holiday messes

here's always plenty to do around
the holidays, so Consumer Reports
asked its cleaning and textile
experts how to make the prep work
easier and faster.
Freshening up sheets, towels and
linens. There's no need to rewash clean
guest room sheets and towels that haven't
been used in months. Just toss them in
the dryer on low heat for 15 minutes. If
you don't want fold lines on your freshly
ironed tablecloths, roll them up on empty
wrapping-paper tubes.
Removing wax from candlesticks and
menorahs. Place silver or other metals in
the freezer until the wax hardens, then
gently scrape it off with a plastic spatula.
If wax remains, pour boiling water
over the item or immerse it in a pot
of boiling water, making sure any felt
covering on the base remains dry. For
glass or wood, point a blow-dryer at
the wax and then blot the melting wax
with a paper towel, but be careful not
to overheat wood because it can crack.
Caring for silver. Remove tarnish
with a polishing mitt or by applying
silver cleaner with a damp sponge;


buff dry. Washing by hand is usually
recommended. Don't soak silver for
long periods because non-silver parts
can rust, and never wash silver and
stainless together because a chemical
reaction between the metals can cause
Cleaning glass ornaments. Surface
decorations are usually applied with
water-soluble paint, so avoid treating
them with soap, water and cleaning
solutions. Use a soft feather duster
Dusting an artificial Christmas tree.
Set up the tree and spread out a sheet
at its base to catch debris. Cover the
vacuum's upholstery attachment with
a piece of hosiery or mesh netting
fastened with a rubber band. Starting
from the top of the tree and moving
down, gently vacuum on the lowest
setting, holding the attachment about
an inch away from the branches to
remove dust and cobwebs.

Once the guests are gone and all the
dust has settled, it's time to survey the
damage. It pays to act quickly, even with
messes that have been there for a while.
Another rule of thumb: Always blot stains
on carpets, napkins, clothing and the like,
because scrubbing can damage their
Christmas tree sap on carpet or
upholstery. Whether your tree is a pine,
fir or spruce, the sticky sap is basically the
same, according to a tree expert at Cornell
University. Blot sap with isopropyl rubbing
alcohol to dissolve it and then make a
detergent solution of 1 teaspoon of a mild
clear or white dishwashing liquid without
bleach in 1 cup of warm water. Blot carpet
or upholstery with the solution, then blot
with clean water. Dry with a white cloth.
Gravy on table linens. Scrape off excess
with a spoon. Pretreat with a Fels-Naptha
paste or Resolve stain remover and wash.
Do not put items in the dryer until the
stain is gone or it will be even harder to
remove it.
Chocolate on carpet or fabrics. Scrape
off excess. Blot carpet with Consumer
Reports'detergent solution. If the stain

rahs, Consumer Reports recommends placing

wax hardens, then gently scraping it off with a
plastic spatula.
remains, try this vinegar solution: Mix 1/
cup of white vinegar with % cup of water.
Dry with a white cloth. For washable
items, use your washer's soak cycle and
one of Consumer Reports'top-rated
detergents that's tough on chocolate,
such as WAisk Deep Clean, then wash.
Candle wax on tablecloths. Pour boiling
water through the washable fabric from a
height of 12 inches (the height increases
the velocity of the water, helping separate
the wax from the fibers). For fabric that
can't be washed, sandwich it between
paper towels and apply a warm iron; repeat
with a clean towel until the wax is lifted.

2013 Christmas
ince this week has only
two major releases a
new B.o.B and a newv
soundtrack to the upcoming
movie, "Anchorman 2,"Z am
going to write about some
new 2013 Christmas releases.
First is a new holiday
release by Susan Boyle called
Home for Christmas.
I believe no introduction
is needed for Susan Boyle.
We all saw how she sprung
on to the worldwide music
scene when she took the
stage on the television show
Britain's GotTalent back in
2009.You know the old story,
a 47-year-old spinster from a
little village called Blackburn
in Scotland. She wasn't con-
sidered eye candy and was
expected to fail miserably,
then she stole the show and
has been on fire ever since.
Even this old tough guy
gets a little misty eyed when
watching her audition.
This is her fifth studio
release and her second
Christmas release. On the first
Christmas CD, she was told
what to sing so they could
capitalize on her overnight
stardom. That did not
happen this time around. She
has worked on this release
the entire year. She is singing
her favorite holiday songs
and as a tribute to her father's
love of Elvis Presley, she was
granted permission to sing
a duet with Elvis via today's
great technology. There are
12 songs in all, including one
original song and another
duet with the very live and
kicking Johnny Mathis. If you
are a fan of hers, then this CD
is a must.
Another 2013 Christmas
release is by Kelly Clarkson
called Wrapped in Red.

Another a tst who31
has cjaitned fantme b
Amenlea s fascllatliol
with television talent
contests, Clarkson was the
original winner of Season 1
on American Idol. I believe
she is the best-selling artist
that has come from these
type of shows. Most of the
winners get their 15 minutes
of fame and are not heard
much after.That is not what
has happened for Clarkson.
She has six releases in the
past 10 years and this is her
first Christmas release.
Of the 14 songs, five are
original, written or co-written
by Clarkson. As I write this
article, I am sitting at my shop
listening to this CD. It has got-
ten very good reviews and I
too must give it a thumbs up.
She has definitely done her
part by promoting this CD, it
seems she has been on every
talk show available.
Many Christmas albums
are the same old traditional
songs and can get boring
(sorry Santa) but with her
original songs mixed in with
the oldies, it flows quite well.
Something for everyone, a
little jazzy, a little tender, and
little upbeat and it concludes
with an wonderful rendition
of Silent Night featuring
Reba McEntire and Trisha
2013 saw a Christmas
release by MaryJ. Blige called
A Mary Christmas.
Mary J. Blige is an R&B
artist hailing from New
York City. She has been a
legend in her own right for
many years. This is her 11th
studio release and her first
holiday album. She teamed
up with famed producer
David Foster to create this


CD. The album contains 12
songs and features many of
the standard holiday tracks.
The CD includes a few guest
artists like Barbra Streisand,
Chris Botti, Jennifer Lopez
and Marc Anthony. A Mary
Christmas has an overall jazzy
feel to it and with Mary's
soulful voice it is bound to be
a holiday favorite.
Other holiday CDs that you
should own include: Michael
Bubl6, Christmas; Josh
Groban, Noel; Straight No
Chaser Under the Influence,
Holiday Edition; Trans-Siberian
Orchestra, Christmas Eve
and Other Stories; Chicago
Ultimate Christmas Collection;
and Mariah Carey, Merry
Of course some old
favorites like, Dean Martin's
My Kind of Christmas;
Frank Sinatra's Christmas;
James Taylor at Christmas;
Kenny Rogers, The Gift;
The Carpenters' Christmas
Portrait, Bing Crosby's Voice
of Christmas; Andrea Bocelli's
My Christmas, Neil Diamond,
The Christmas Album; and
any Mannheim Steamroller
Christmas CD.
Enjoy your holiday shop-
ping and make sure you take
the time to relax with your
favorite Christmas CD.
Keep rockin; folks!

Dress those dolls up for more value

oll collectors almost always add
doll clothes to their collections. Of-
ten the original outfits increase the
value of a collectible doll quite consider-
ably. They want the outfits, the accesso-
ries and the extras that came with the
doll when it was first issued.
Kind mothers often sewed new outfits
for dolls when the originals got soiled
or torn. Collectors want clothes that
are well-detailed and done with good
workmanship. Some dolls were issued
with a choice of clothes and having all
the outfits is also a big plus.
I don't mean to totally disregard
clothes made by hand that reflect the
period the doll represented. Some well-
made pieces done in the 19th and early
20th centuries will bring good money if
they are really nicely made. Some would
be considered folk art and would be of
interest to both doll collectors and folk
art people. Well-executed knitted outfits
are also worth considering for your
If the doll came with a hat, then this is

an important part of the outfit, as is the
hair under the hat.
I once cleaned out a house in
Philadelphia and found several dolls.
There was also a tin box the size of the
biggest doll and in it were musty old
doll clothes. When the owner of these
dolls and I went to Renningers Antique
Mall in Pennsylvania to sell them, the
offer was greater for the tin box and the
clothes than for all but one of the dolls.
That high-value doll was a Bi-Lo in mint
condition that to me, a novice, looked
like it would be worth almost nothing.
To find a good selection of doll clothes
online you should consider, and
along with the old standby eBay. Etsy
will have lots of handcrafted clothes
along with antique pieces.
From a former president of a local doll
club: Doll collecting is a great hobby
and doll collectors are great people
who enjoy every aspect of collecting ...
that's what it is all about. Dolls tell us
so much about history, fashion, politics,

foreign countries, etc. Whether a doll is
of museum quality or a garage sale doll,
it really doesn't matter to most ardent
dedicated collectors, we appreciate each
and every doll to be a treasure.
Some collectors buy only antique
dolls made of porcelain or wood or
composition or even cloth. Some col-
lectors buy as an investment. Whatever
their desires, there is a doll to fulfill that
Take the Madame Alexander doll com-
pany for instance. She designed beauti-
ful dolls with elaborate clothing meant
to last from generation to generation
with instructions on the doll tag reading,
"This doll is meant to be played with."
It's probably a good idea to join a doll
club to learn, to share and to preserve
dolls as well as to meet new good

Practice for Christmas

Some sav, iokinglv,
that Thanksgiving is
practice for Christmas.
Yes, a lot of the food that
we have at Thanksgiving
returns at Christmas, but I
have always thought that
Christmas had it's own
flair. There is more pep-
permint and cinnamon
around the Christmas sea-
son, and a season favorite
One of the great things
about the firehouse, but
not good for the waistline,
is that lots of sweet treats
make it by the station. On
any given night, dishes are
dropped off, and thanks to
the holiday sales, din-din
at the firehouse gets
cheap. We do practice our
mad skills at the station, so
that come the holidays, we
are on point for the family.
I remember when deep
frying turkeys first became

ipOpLUlai, wVe had a lot of
deep-fiied turkey at the
station. Had a few turduck-
ens, too. If you're not sure
what I'm talking about,
that's where they stuff a
turkey with a duck, stuffed
with a small chicken, and it
is really good.
Then you have the hams
of all kinds, and with no
shortage of sandwich
fixing after the big meal.
The smells that radiate
from the station kitchen
around the holidays make
you hungry even after
you're full.
This week's recipe is all
in good fun, and was sent
via Facebook. Now alcohol
is not allowed at the
station, so this is a recipe
that is best used at home.

to serve it in, sprinkle

overnight is better.
Serve with crackers.

lime wedges for folks

want. A sprig of parsley
is a nice garnish. Serves

Some favorite

holiday TV specials

You think people are
passionate about their
favorite weekly television
shows? That's nothing. I
recently took an informal
poll on Facebook of what
people like to watch during
the holidays.
You know, the must-
watch-before-Dec. 25-
complete shows.
Nowadays, when so much
of our television viewing
can be streamed on the go,
many of our fondest holiday
TV memories involve
actually sitting down and
watching a certain program
at a certain time.
But I'm a traditionalist
so let's stick with favorites.
Below, in no particular
order, is a list of the things
I love to watch this time
of year, with some sample
broadcast dates, though
many might air numerous
times and dates and times
are subject to change.
*"How the Grinch Stole
Christmas": Boris Karloff
narrates the one and only
1966 animated original
(sorry, Jim Carrey) about
that scary green guy and
his adventures in Whoville,
based on the book by Dr.
Seuss. And what about that
vocal byThurl Ravenscroft
on "You're a Mean One,
Mr. Grinch"? Nothing better
(8 p.m. Dec. 24 on ABC).
*"Prancer":This 1989
charmer is about a
Christmas-loving young
girl (Rebecca Harrell)
sheltering a reindeer,
which she thinks belongs


o The Sun/Sunday, December 15, 2013 Page 5


to Santa, on her father's
farm at Christmastime. It
also stars Sam Elliott, Cloris
Leachman and AbeVigoda.
It's a tear-jerker that gets
me every time (Dec.17 on
ABC Family and available
on DVD).
*"A Christmas Story":
Bob Clark's delightful 1983
comedy, based on the
novel by Jean Shepherd, in
which young Ralphie (Peter
Billingsley) goes on a 1940s
Christmas quest for a Red
Ryder air rifle, his old man
(Darrin McGavin) gets"a
major award"and some kid
gets his tongue stuck to an
icy pole (all-day marathon
Dec. 25 on TBS).
"Christmas in
Yellowstone": This 2006
PBS"Nature"special looks
at the winter wonders of
one of our greatest national
parks. Something about the
stillness and quiet beauty of
long stretches of this special
makes for perfect viewing
after the holiday madness
has died down (8 p.m.
Dec. 25).
*"Meet Me in St. Louis":
What's not to love about
Vincente Minnelli's 1944
musical that follows the
lives of the Smith family
the year before the 1904
World's Fair? You've got
Margaret O'Brien, Marjorie
Main and June Lockhart
plus the Christmas section
of the film, featuring Judy
Garland singing "Have
Yourself a Merry Little
Christmas." It may be overly
sentimental, but in my
opinion, it's a great capper
to the Christmas season
(Dec. 23 and 24 on TCM). The Sun /Sunday, December 15, 2013

Finding Children 'A Home for

the Holidays'

FYI Televsion, Inc.
Given that children are our most
valuable resource, it's hard to imag-
ine a more relevant television pro-
gram than one extolling the benefits
of getting the more than 400,000
kids out of the foster care system
and into adoptive families. Airing
Wednesday at 8 p.m. on CBS, 'A
Home for the Holidays With Celine
Dion" continues the adoption aware-
ness campaign for its 15th year, head-
lined by a musical superstar known
for tugging at the heartstrings of
her enchanted fans. Presented in
association with the Dave Thomas
Foundation for Adoption and the
Children's Action Network, the
special also includes performances
by Ne-Yo, Chris Young and others.
"She's exactly the artist we want,"
executive producer Stu Schreiberg
says of Dion, "because in addition
to delivering these one-of-a-kind
musical performances that only
Celine can do, she brings a certain
amount of emotion to the show, and
for this show emotion is everything."
Viewers who are familiar with the
annual special will be prepared for
a moving presentation, and should
expect no departures from its proven
structure. "The format has always
been the same," explains Schreiberg.
"We tell these very emotional stories
of children and parents kind of find-
ing each other, we reveal the families
now together sitting in our audience,
and then we transition to an original
musical performance. That's the
same format we've been doing for
15 years, and it made for what we
thinks avery compelling hour."
The stories presented on
the program stress the /
idea of families find-
ing each other. For "
example, when '
Tammy Gerber .
volunteered at
a summer camp
which brought to-
gether separated t...',i
children, she had no i,' .1 tli.t

Celine Dion headlines thi
musical performances on the
adoption awareness special
"A Home for the Holidays
With Celine Dion," airing
Wednesday at 8 p.m. on CBS.

she and her husband, Jason, would
soon become the proud parents of
a sibling group of three. "I noticed
Josh, Kyla and Skyler right away
and fell in love with them;' she
says. "They were 12, 9 and 8 and
had been separated in foster care:'
"I missed my siblings every
day," recalls Sklyer, the youngest.
"When my wife called me on
the last night of camp and told
me about Kyla and her brothers, I
couldn't imagine them living with-
out each other," adds Jason Gerber
"The day we were adopted was
a dream come true," gushes Kyla.
"We came to camp that summer
because we were always separated.
And little did we know that our mom
was right there next to us," says Josh.
Over the years, the "Home for the
Holidays" specials have done much
to raise the perception of adoption
as a sound option for those wanting
to build a family. While the produc-
ers are unable to track the number of
adoptions inspired by the programs,
they do have an idea of its effective-
ness, at least in one particular area.

"The idea for the show was to
create overall national awareness for
adoption, andl can tellyoutwo anec-
dotes about how I knowwe're having
an impact," Schreiberg relates. "One
is every year we do a segment called
'Children Waiting,' which is not
about children who come together
with parents to form a family, but
it's children who are still out there,
children who are still waiting to
find a family. We profile maybe five
or six children a year, and all those
kids in 15 years have become ad-
opted. And almost all of them were
adopted within 12 months after the
show. And who knows what kind of
national impact we've had in terms
of people who now have adoption in
their head as a possible solution to
what they may want for their own
life in the future. There's a million
reasons why people adopt, and we
justwant to basically break down any
barriers that may exist. Really, it's an
amazing option for so many people"
"I also know that what makes the
show so special to the people who
have worked on it for 15 years is it's
one of the very few shows that has
kind of created its own physical au-
dience. We try to keep the show very
intimate andvery small so all the kids
in the audience are very close in prox-
imity to artists who are performing,
but what's remarkable to me is we
started to realize that the audience
itselfwas created by the show, mean-
ing that the families that were com-
ing to this show were created by the
-h\I L-, If. On the tenth anniversary,
Sti \,>n pielberg asked how many
"pI'h ii the audience were touched
I. ,. ,w many families were cre-
.ttl I.' the show, and about 90
i, i t of the audience stood up."
I Vhile getting foster children
nto111 permanent families is
t he show's target result, the
length of time it has aired
flr has allowed Schreiberg
S and his colleagues the
opportunity to wit-
Sness how much
of a difference
that can make
4 i in a child's life.
"The most
S rewarding
thing for me;'
S says Schrei-
., berg, "is seeing
kids that we knew
'.ere out out of
th, system [where
IL it \ were] on their
.* .Ii iII foster care with
I NII ,iiiited opportunities
to gain stability, and seeing how
those kids were taken in by a fam-
ily, and now you see these kids ex-
celling whether it's just personally
or academically. You know, it's been

15 years, and some of these early kids
we profiled were 4 and 5 years old,
and now we're seeing them graduate
from college. And that is remarkable.
"Something else that's interest-
ing for me, this has always been a
show that needs artists who leave
their ego at the door," Schreiberg
continues. 'You know, this is not the
American Music Awards.' This show
is not about the band; it's about the
kids. And I think artists come in and
they're thinking that, Well, maybe
this is still about me.' And after about
five minutes of being in that build-
ing, the feeling, considering who
that studio audience is, it's palpable,
and they realize very, very quickly
that this is truly a very different show
and an extraordinary experience for
them, which is why there are artists
asking to come back year after year."

Q We are huge fans
of "Person of Interest."
We were not expecting
Carter to be killed off!
She, Reese and Finch are
the program. Without her,
it won't be the same. Why
was Carter written out?
-- Laura K., via email
A: Taraji P. Henson, who
played Officer Joss Carter
for two and a half seasons
on the CBS drama, was
just as surprised as you
were that her character
died. However, she
knows it was time for
her character to go, and
it was a great way to
surprise and stun the
audience. She recently
told Entertainment
Weekly: "You portray a
character for so long,
you care about her and

her life. But art imitates
life -- it comes to an end
unexpectedly. It was
bittersweet, because I
enjoyed portraying Carter.
What a strong, powerful
woman on television."
But don't get too sad
about Carter's death,
because you could see
her again someday
-- in a flashback. The
show is known for using
flashbacks to propel the
storylines, and Taraji said
she definitely would be
up for returning to film
flashback scenes.
Q Can you please tell
me if "Bunheads" will
return to ABC Family
anytime this year? --
Frank W., via email
A: ABC Family canceled
the ballerina dramedy
after only one season,
which many critics say
was entirely too soon,
and that the show was
just finding its ground
and still had a lot more to
give. But fan and critical

favor couldn't save this
Amy Sherman Palladino-
created show (she's most
famous for "Gilmore
Girls"), with "Bunheads"
airing its last dance this
past February.
9: I love "The Witches
o East End." Can you tell
me if it will be back for
another season? -- Lynn
W., via email
A: Lifetime recently
announced that
"Witches" will return
for a second 13-episode
season, to air sometime
in 2014 (an exact date has
not been decided yet).
The hit drama stars Julia
Ormond, M.dchen Amick,
Jenna Dewan-Tatum and
Rachel Boston as a family
of witches living in the
secluded seaside town
of East Haven. The show
also stars Eric Winter,
Daniel DiTomasso and
Virginia Madsen. And
don't miss the season one
finale, which airs Sunday
at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

leans to reclaim the French
Quarter empire his fam-

The Biggest Loser 15:
Second Chances

Everyone is left on their
own as the teams dis-
solve; Alison challenges the
participants to a grueling
endurance challenge, after
which she announces an
upcoming competition that
is a "Biggest Loser" first; a
double elimination leaves
eight. (HD)

Making True Detective
8:45 p.m. on HBO
A behind-the-scenes look
is taken at the production
of HBO's new drama series,
"True Detective," which
follows the lives of two
investigators in Louisiana
as they become entangled
in the 17-year-long hunt for
a serial killer. (HD)

A young boy's doubts about
Santa's existence are al-


A&E announced it is
picking up a third season
of "Longmire," the con-
temporary crime thriller
starring Robert Taylor,
Katee Sackhoff and Lou

Robert Taylor
Diamond Phillips. "'Long-
mire' has become one
of the most compelling
dramas on television with
a devoted audience, and
we are so proud of the
show," says David Mc-
Killop, general manager
and executive vice presi-
dent of A&E.

On Friday, Dec. 27, at
9 p.m., PBS' "American
Masters" pays tribute to
one of our musical greats
with "Marvin Hamlisch:

What He Did for Love."
The documentary inter-
views Barbra Streisand,
Steven Soderbergh,
Quincy Jones, Christopher
Walken, Sir Tim Rice, Joe
Torre, Woody Allen, John
Lithgow, Lucie Arnaz,
Ann-Margret and many
others. Inspiration came
to the composer from the
world around him. "If he
heard the wind or breeze
in the trees, he could tell
you what note it was,"
says his wife Terre Blair
Hamlisch. "He could tell
you the screech of a tire.
He didn't hear like we
would hear the screech
of a tire. He would hear
it with the note, the
exact note of it. It's an
E flat. It's this. It's that.
He could hear a fly like a
747. He used to say that
it's extremely difficult
to write a good melody.
I think that sometimes
people confuse
complexity, and it can
be more subconscious.
If something is being
written, it can be more
subconscious. The most
difficult thing is to write
a good melody that isn't

played when he is invited
aboard a magical train for
a journey to the North Pole,
where he is treated to a
special gift reserved only
for those who truly believe
in Santa. (HD)

Boston's Finest

8 p.m. on PBS (check local

walks by Mr. Stink and
his dog, Duchess, every

that he's in trouble, she
hides him in her garden
shed. Chloe's mom and
dad aren't exactly paying
attention, and her perfect
younger sister takes up
the rest of their time.
She's also dealing with
bullies at school. Mr.
Stink might be a little
smelly, but he also has a
different way of looking
at the world, a way that
might help Chloe deal
with her troubles.
