I hadnt been to Shortys Place for one reason: I thought it would be a clich. When you have to use fractions to describe your height, you know youre a shorty. I assumed a bartender would ring a bell every time someone shorter than 5 feet, 5 inches walked in the door. So hanging out at a place named Shortys seemed, well, tailor-made for Munchkin, Oompa Loompa or Webster jokes (take your pick). Sheryl Shorty Peters has heard all the jokes (yes, she is standing and no, not in a hole). Im 4 feet, 9 inches, she said. Theres one girl (who came into the bar) who is shorter than me. I gave her a T-shirt and bought her a beer. Short jokes aside, the Punta Gorda bar is tall on beer options. There are 28 different beers on tap, and theres truly something for everyone (fancy beers and domestic beers). Bartenders will let you sample beers so you dont get stuck with a pint of something you dont like. Be sure to try the St. Bernardus Christmas Ale. I like to serve good, quality beer, Shorty said. Were a craft and domestic beer bar. We do it all. We change the beer all the time. Those who want to drink a pint of the Curious Traveler, Fox Barrel Blackberry Pear Cider or Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat can do so next to those choosing Miller Light, Coors Light or Bud Light. The bar caters to all kinds of beer lovers. Whats more interesting than Shortys beer list is her large collection of beer cans. They are everywhere: lining walls, dangling from the ceiling and even forming lamps above the bar. I bought a really big collection from a gentleman in Ocala, Shorty said. The man inherited the cans from his father. When he learned how Shorty planned to display them and not sell them, he lowered his price and even delivered the collection to her. Then I bought a second collection, she said. She also recently bought a collection of beer trays, which she plans to place between rafters on the ceiling above the outdoor bar area (insert ladder/short joke here). Shortys recently expanded to include a larger room in the back, where there are three pool tables and in case you were wondering I can reach, Shorty said of the pool tables. I used to be really good. Shortys hilarious sense of humor can be seen in the bathrooms as well. There are many New Yorker cartoons on the walls, though thats not what many of the men immediately notice when there are Playboy Vargas pinups serving as wallpaper. Maybe its the varied beer options. Maybe its the humor-lined walls. Maybe its the Shorty with the Shaq-sized personality running the place. Im not sure exactly what it is, but it really is a place where anyone and everyone can strike up a conversation. Its a place where bikers and preppies can talk, as bartender Mo Cook described it. Its a melting pot here, she said. There is no division here. Mo started going to Shortys as a custom er. She liked it so much she started working there a week ago. Its a great place to hang out, she said. Shortys opens at 7 a.m. every day (they serve coffee too). I never close. Im open holidays, Shorty said. These are denitely my family.

We recommend that you protect yourself against potential misuse of your credit and debit information, states a notice posted Thursday on the Target website. The company said the information that may have been accessed by cyber criminals includes customer names, debit or credit card numbers, card expiration dates, and the three-digit security codes often imprinted on the backs of cards, known as CVV numbers. With that information at their nger tips, it would be simple for criminals to make purchases at most websites. The data breach affected purchases made at stores during the busiest time of the holiday shopping season, from Nov. 27 to Dec. 15 this past Sunday Target said. The company said it immediately notied law enforcement authorities and nancial institutions after discovering the breach, though this was its rst notice to customers. The website itself was not breached. The giant retailer, with nearly 1,800 stores in the country, also stated the issue had been identied and resolved. But that provided little assurance to Jan Schneider of Englewood, who heard the news Thursday morning while shopping at the Target store on Tamiami Trail in Murdock.Thieves Target shoppersBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERStores security breach puts 40M at riskTARGET | 11 SUN PHOTO BY SUE PAQUINA hundred foster children in Charlotte County will wake up to nd toys under the tree this Christmas thanks to the students, their families and the faculty at Good Shepherd Day School in Punta Gorda. A Giving Tree was placed at the school and decorated with the names of 100 children and what they would like from Santa for Christmas. Emily Mensing, 7, helped her mother and sister make 200 jars of jelly, which were sold, raising $300 to use to purchase some of the gifts, while others were donated. The goal is to provide 100 children with at least two gifts each to open Christmas morning. Volunteer art teacher MaryAnn Maddage, who is also a foster parent, said the whole Good Shepherd Day School family was involved in making this a success again this year. Here, Selena Caraballo, a seventh-grade student at the school, takes a toy from Michael Balunas, 7, to add to the camper. See more photos, page 12.The FBI has placed Edly Albert Atherley II on its most wanted list. The Port Charlotte High School graduate is being sought in connection with the violent death of his wife at their home in San Bernardino, Calif. Authorities suspect Atherley, 29, of killing Ashley Atherley, 28, who was found with her throat slashed Dec. 1. The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to Edlys arrest. The FBI bulletin also warns that Edly, whom the bulletin calls a convicted felon, should be considered armed and dangerous, and possibly suicidal. Police believed Edly was still in the San Bernardino area, but there is a chance he has made passage back to Southwest Florida, having grown up in Port Charlotte. His wife also has family in Hillsborough County, Fla., where the couple lived for a time before moving to California earlier this year. In addition, the FBI said Edly has ties to Belize in Central America, where he reportedly has family and friends. Identifying marks on Edly include a large, gash-type wound on his right hand, an abrasion to his right forearm, and a tattoo on his right shoulder, the FBI stated. According to media reports, Edly was last seen Dec. 4 while attempting to buy a train ticket, but ran off after being identied by a security ofcer. Charlotte County Sheriffs PCHS grad on FBIs most wanted listBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERWANTED | 11MURDOCK After Toys R Us closes in January, restaurant chains LongHorn Steakhouse and Cheddars Casual Caf are set to take the toy superstores place. With the announcement that Toys R Us is beginning its liquidation the day after Christmas, many locals were wondering what would be lling the void of the large toy store once it closes for good early next year. According to Charlotte County building ofcials, permits have been pulled for LongHorn Steakhouse and Cheddars. No other businesses have applied for permits at the Toys R Us location at 1381 Tamiami Trail. Rumors that a Bonesh Grill and Chase Bank were coming circulated; however representatives from both corporations said there are no immediate plans within the next year for either to come to the area. A Chase representative said theres already a branch in Charlotte, and another in nearby North Port. A Bonesh Grill rep said it doesnt share the same parent company as LongHorn or Cheddars, and there are no current plans to come to the area. Cheddars offers homemade fare like shepherds pie and chicken-fried steak, along with salads, hamburgers and desserts. It has locations in Fort Myers, Clearwater and Tampa. Along with steaks, LongHorn serves ribs, chops, chicken and sh that are never frozen, according to the company. It has restaurants in Sarasota and Fort Myers. Toys R Us ofcials said the local store is shuttering as a result of the property sale of the building. We are closing three stores in the Southwest Florida market due to a combination of lease expirations and a property sale, said Alyssa Peera, LongHorn, Cheddars coming next yearBy ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICHSTAFF WRITERLONGHORN | 11IF YOU GOWhere: Shortys Place, 306 W Marion Ave., Punta Gorda When: 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. seven days a week More info: 941-6392337 Tip: Cash only ChristyFEINBERGCOLUMNISTSIDE DISH Fostering the spirit of giving ATHERLEYCharlotte SunAND WEEKLY HERALDCALL US AT 941-206-1000THE SUN: Obituaries 5 | Police Beat 7 | Viewpoint 8 | Opinion 9-10 | THE WIRE: Nation 2 | State 3 | World 5,8 | Business 6-7 | Weather 8 | SPORTS: Lotto 2 | CLASSIFIED: Comics 11-14 | Dear Abby 14 | TV Listings 15 VOL. 121 NO. 354 AN EDITION OF THE SUN AMERICAS BEST COMMUNITY DAILYFRIDAY DECEMBER 20, $1.00 20 percent chance of rain83 65 High Low Look inside for valuable couponsThis years savings to date ...S UN COUPON VALUE METER CHARLIE SAYS ...Quack?INDEX | 705252000258 Daily Edition $1.00 $83,884US Rep.

Featured EventPAID ADVERTISEMENT | COMMUNITY | CALENDAR ENGLEWOOD Lights, cameras and attention will shine on Manasota Key and South Gulf Cove real estate. Jim Benson, licensed broker-owner of Paradise Cove Properties, nished lming with Magilla Entertainment production company featuring a home in South Gulf Cove for an upcoming episode for the Home & Garden Television networks Beachfront Bargain Hunts. An earlier episode featuring a home on South Manasota Key is scheduled to debut 8 p.m. Jan. 26 on HGT. Whats really nice about the show, its going to give our area from the Myakka River to Manasota Key great national exposure, Benson said. It could be a catalyst to help spur the (real estate) market. All the brokers I talked to who have done the show in the past said its been incredible for new buyer leads, he said. Its going to be a win-win for the entire real estate community. Theres no other way to say it. The Manhattan-based Magilla Entertainment lms episodes for a number of other reality television shows such as The Long Island Medium, Moonshiners, Celebrities at Home, and King of Thrones. Benson said he does not know what rst attracted the production company to West County. He was on vacation when Magilla Entertainment called Paradise Cove. They actually found me, Benson said. They wanted to do a show on a house that I sold on Manasota Key. Probably four weeks later we shot the rst show. Beachfront Bargain Hunts features communities where you can nd properties, residences, under $375,000. The premise of the show, Benson said, is to follow actual buyers who look at four different homes. Originally, Magilla Entertainment told Benson usually one episode is devoted to featuring a community, but Benson said he sent them information featuring canal front properties in South Gulf Cove. Two days later, he said, the production company agreed to come back and gave him 11 days to prepare. We had a nice couple from Maine with ve kids and nine grandchildren who were looking for a bigger vacation home on the water, Benson said. The Maine couple decided to buy a $355,000 three-bedroom, two-bath home with a heated pool, boat lift and a dynamic view overlooking the Zephyr Waterway in South Gulf Cove. Originally from upstate New York, Benson rst settled in Boynton Beach, Fla., before moving to South Gulf Cove in 2004. He said hes here to stay. I believe in Rotonda and I believe in South Gulf Cove, the 38-yearold Benson said. He said he can see himself working in the area for another 30 years and not running out of work. I think the future of West Charlotte is right here, he said.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comArea homes featured on Home & Garden Television By STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER A Magilla Entertainment production crew sets up for a shot featuring real estate in South Gulf Cove.

The Sun /Friday, December 20, 2013 C Our Town Page 3 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Downtown Punta Gorda was full of activity as par ticipants and onlookers enjoyed our 35th annual Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade on Dec. 14. The judges had a difficult time deciding who was the best among the more than 80 floats, decorated cars/trucks/ boats, and performing units. But when the numbers on the scoring sheets were tallied, the results for best floats were: the Presidents award, Boys & Girls Clubs of Charlotte County; the Grand Marshal award, Charlotte County 4-H; first place float, Deep Creek Elementary; second place, Genesis Christian School; and third place, Therapeutic Wellness Center. In the best performing/ marching category the winners were: Meadow Park Elementary School Gymnastics (first), Florida Dance Workshop (second) and the Animal Welfare League (third). The Southern Cross Campus was awarded first place for the best decorated car/truck/ boat, with the Santas sleigh in second place and Whispering Pines Clydesdales in third place. Everyone who participated was a winner, according to Chamber president, T.J. Thornberry, who handed out awards with parade chairman Ron Thomas, co-chairman Ed Hill, and grand marshal Michele Valencourt.

Through this program, the Charlotte Local Education Foundation will provide a college tuition scholarship pur chased from the Florida Prepaid Foundation. In order to be a part of the program and receive the scholarship, scholars must keep a GPA of 2.5 or higher, stay out of trouble, and meet with a mentor once a week.

Clemmons said the foundation is looking for volunteers to help out once a week. You dont have to be a tutor, she said. More of a mentor.

Our Town Page 4 C The Sun /Friday, December 20, 2013 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS PUNTA GORDA The Charlotte County Airport Authority, in an overwhelming show of support, unanimously voted to give airport Executive Director Gary Quill a nearly 22 percent raise after he received glowing evaluations from authority commissioners. The vote was taken at the authoritys regular meeting Thursday. Quill, who was named Aviation Professional of the Year in July by the Florida Department of Transportation, took over as executive director at the Punta Gorda Airport in 2001. The board unanimously voted to bump Quills pay from $152,000 a year to an annual salary of $185,000. The increase would go into effect immediately. Its a modest increase in comparison to where we are and what our director has done, Airport Authority Chairman Don Lee said. I suggest that next year its going to be even larger. Before proposing the increase, Lee rattled off a list of airport accomplishments in the last scal year, including rebounding from the devastating blow levied by Direct Airs bankruptcy in 2012. Lee noted revenue is up by $1 million; passenger trafc has increased by 500,000; and the airports carrier, Allegiant Air, now ies to 23 cities to and from Punta Gorda. Lee also pointed out what airport directors in neighboring cities are earning annually. The director of Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers makes $300,000 a year, Lee said. Sarasotas director makes $254,000 per year. In Naples, the director makes $209,000. I think its a steal, authority Commissioner Pam Seay said. Its a bargain and a half that we would get someone of Mr. Quills caliber, and his proven skills and ability. The fact is, when we compare what others are making, and knowing the success that our executive director has had and knowing that those other airports want him, and would probably pay dearly to take him away from us we need to watch that, she said to commissioners. Then, turning to Quill, Seay said, Youre not going anywhere, because youve done a tremendous job. The FDOT named Quill Aviation Professional of the Year at the annual Florida Airports Council conference in July in Orlando. In deciding the winner, the selection committee noted Quills accomplishments, including overseeing aireld improvements and reconstruction of the airport after Hurricane Charley, re-establishing airline service to the community and sur rounding areas after Direct Airs demise, and improving the authoritys commerce park. Recently, Quill has come under re from local residents who say he has not done enough to mitigate noise from airplanes ying over their communities. Quill said he is aware of the concerns and has met with Federal Aviation Administration ofcials to discuss solutions. Next month, Quill will meet with the authoritys noise consultant to review the various options that came out of the FAA meeting. Quill said he will present his ndings to the authority in the next few months. Its still up in the air, he said. No pun intended.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comReviews lift airport directors payBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITER QUILL The parking lot of the Kings Highway Walmart was packed with police cars Tuesday, leading the curious to wonder what sting or chase was going on inside. Instead, the store was bustling with 30 lucky children and even more local police officers who considered themselves to be just as lucky paired for the annual Shop With a Cop event. Shop With a Cop is a national program designed to build relationships between law enforcement and the community. Statistics show that kids who have good relationships with police are less likely to get into trouble. The children, in grades two through five, were selected for the honor by their school counselors, either due to need, a family crisis, or as a reward or incentive. Each child is given a $100 gift card to use for purchases of their choosing whether for themselves or for others. Walmarts toy aisles were packed with kids and cops, identifiable by the high-flying balloons attached to their carts. Most of the kids carried shopping lists, and some of them had come to Walmart on an earlier day to check out the possibilities. Fourth-grader Joseph Siraco and his shopping buddy, Lt. Darrell Caparo, quickly camouflaged his pur chases for the photo so the surprises wouldnt be revealed before Christmas. Second-grader Triniti Mueller beamed with pride as her presents were wrapped by the volunteer elves. Triniti had the pleasure of shopping with two officers: Sgt. Tom Scott and Deputy Dan Cotton. This is the ninth year weve done Shop With a Cop, and the deputies and officers are off the clock, donating their time to participate, said Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Prummell. But we cant do it alone. We depend on donations from the community. Each participating WalMart donates between $1,000 and $4,000 through grant programs. Community organizations make donations and volunteer, too. Rotonda Elks 2710 has participated for five years, donating funds and handling the registration table. Gift-wrapping elves ranged from high school students to adults. Although the children are free to spend their gift card on anything, most shop for their family, said Crime Prevention Officer Dale Phillips. If they have some left over, they buy a little something for themselves. Often, the officers will dip into their own pockets to buy the child something. The program covers the tax on the childrens purchases so they can spend the full $100. Additional officers covered the exits to make sure children didnt wander off, and others roamed the store to be sure everyone was safe. Even Santa Claus heard about the event and came by for photos. Kids could visit with him while waiting to have their gifts wrapped. Then the officers took the children back to registration to be reunited with the adults who signed them in. As they left the store, they no longer needed the balloons for identification. The lucky shoppers could be spotted by the smiles on their faces as they proudly pushed their carts full of gifts.Smiles all around for Shop With a CopBy BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGERSUN CORRESPONDENT SUN PHOTOS BY BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGERSantas ho-ho-hos could be heard as he made his way to the Shop With a Cop area at the front of the Kings Highway Walmart. Second-grader Madison Neubauer was a star as she and Cpl. Craig Brandon had their photos taken four times while they shopped. Lt. Darrell Caparo helped hide Joseph Siracos gifts so they wouldnt be seen in the photo. KEEPINFORMED!Log onto f or breaking news. TWIN LOBSTERS Seaf ood Market 2700 Placi da Rd. Eng.

Our Town Page 8 C The Sun /Friday, December 20, 2013 Advice: Dont ever grow oldEditor: A few years ago I had a friend (call him Phil) I would see in passing. We would always greet and go on our way. He was a senior like me but of the grouchy type. Never a smile. Down-in-the-dumps sort. While I would give him a hi his response was always, dont get old. Which always made me wonder how you do that. It seems whenever I saw Phil he was sitting on a bench staring into space. You could tell Phil had expensive clothes except they didnt ever match. Loud California-style shirt, orange Bermuda shorts, yel low socks and pink sneakers. On the rare occasion I would see Phil stand, I would notice he was oddly built with a wide middle and very skinny legs. Like an inated balloon with two strings hanging. I nd many of my peers seem to take old age and its aches and pains in stride. They seem to accept getting old, while others seem to mope through life moaning and groaning. They tell me of their problems at great length as though I could do anything about them. Phil never spoke about his problems. He just warned one and all about avoiding old age, dont get old. After some time, I heard some bad news/good news about Phil. Bad news I heard he passed away. Good news is Phil stopped getting old. Amen.John Cavanaugh Punta GordaTwo-party system bad for countryEditor: Do you have to run stories and columns telling us how horrible the tea party is for the Republicans so often? Surely everyone realizes by now how bad for our country a two-party system of government would be.Robert Grumman Port CharlotteBe Christmas to a childEditor: At this hectic holiday season, lets all remember the youngest members of our community. The holidays add their own stresses with increased demands on nances, time and energy. Incidents of domestic violence increase during the holiday season. Families with young children are likely to experience stresses as they tend to be more challenged nancially. This is a good time to step up and be a good neighbor, friend and family member. There are many ways to lighten the load of young families and have fun doing it. Invite children over for cookie baking, Christmas card-making, a special holiday movie or story time, etc. Give parents time to shop, wrap, clean or just catch their breath. Ask how you can help. Be a secret or not so secret Santa by dropping off groceries, gifts, cookies, etc. Buy a turkey, a tree or a toy. Be a blessing in the life of our youngest citizens and their families. At this time of unprecedented demand on our food banks and shelters, be Christmas to a young child.Deborah Whitham VeniceMary not homeless, Joseph had a jobEditor: So that your readers dont think I am worse than Scrooge and the Grinch, I feel compelled to respond to Pat Knoxs critique of my letter to the editor regarding the proposed South Sarasota Homeless Shelter in Lemon Bay Apartments in Englewood. I am not judging and condemning anyone. I simply think a homeless shelter should not be a stones throw from a church, a garden club, public tennis courts, a playground and an elementary school. Knox says the proposed facility will be for the working poor and an emergency intake portal for homeless families with children. Can she guarantee any of that now or in the future? Is she going to monitor who comes and goes? Also, she veers way off point when she tries to insert religion into the argument, writing, All I can tell them, like the Holy Family, there is no room in the inns. Mary and Joseph were not homeless; they were travelers en route from Nazareth to Bethlehem. And Joseph had a job. He was a carpenter. Finally, while the letter oozes with bleeding-heart banality but offers no specic solutions, she does afrm that it is time to take positive action. I agree. Let the shelter be located next door to her.Frank Brady EnglewoodAwesome lights in Port CharlotteEditor: I would like to call attention to an extremely beautiful, artistic light display located at Collingswood and Godwin Avenue. The two homeowners that set up this display have done a fantastic presentation of lighting. A city block to drive around and it is beautiful from any spot. The presentations remind one of artistic sculptures and all with complementing light colors. I am 85 years old and have seen many light displays, and this ranks as one of the most well-done I have seen. Many thanks and wishing happy holidays to the two homeowners that made this display possible. Your display will bring cheer to all who see it. Final word: Awesome!Stanley Whitney Port CharlotteMedicaid action was irresponsibleEditor: Thank you Gov. Scott and Florida GOP for giving Charlie Crist a turbo-boost for 2014. The scal irresponsibility of turning down $51 billion from the federal government is only surpassed by the moral depravity of it. Just think about it: a vast number of poor people without medical insurance (the highest proportion being children) being told that even if its free were saying you cant have it. In essence telling them to get lost, you dont exist. I predict that this moral outrage will backre in November. What would Pope Francis say about this? So keep it up, Rick and company. Im counting the days. May the spirit of Christmas be with you when you unwrap your new Rolex watch.Pete Paschke Port CharlotteUpset that Springs is closedEditor: Upon arrival from Canada, my husband and I were looking forward to our visit to the so-near-to-us Warm Mineral Springs, which has been a godsend to our family since 1977. Having raved to everyone how beautifully they are landscaped now, with upgraded washroom facilities, lifeguards on duty, music, yoga therapy, etc., we were all ready to go. And then disaster struck. We were informed the Springs closed in June and that all assets that made them so beautiful had been sold off. It was as if we had been slapped in the face by Sarasota County and by the city of North Port. We shook our heads in disbelief. No emergency meetings had been held to keep the Springs going. Can you imagine ying in from the wintry north to visit Disney World and nd its doors shut? And here North Port shut down the only gold mine it has. Nothing, but absolutely nothing, should keep the Springs from opening ASAP. Both owners had all summer to come up with an interim plan. They know its not just a pretty place, but that people including our family rely on the Springs for its healing benets. The last management had brought much needed life to North Ports oasis of mineral wealth. Why can councils not see its potential? Waiting with bated breath for the doors to swing open to be once more united with the Springs healing waters.Brigitte Richter North PortDont cut bedside nursesEditor: I read in the Sun recently that Fawcett has cut some staff, licensed nurses to be specic. As a retired registered nurse, I can tell you bedside caregivers are not the people who should be cut. Those are the eyes and ears for the physicians. Ask any physician how much they depend on nurses. Nurses are the patients number one advocate. My experience has convinced me that there are too many nurse managers who should return to bedside nursing, since that is where the greatest need lies. I have seen too many nurses who are put behind a desk, given a title, and it isnt long before they take on a different persona. Most RN bosses are unavailable (for myriad low-priority reasons) to help their staff in a crunch. Thin out management and administration. The heaviest stafng should absolutely be the people who do bedside, hands-on nursing. Patient-tonurse ratios are inadequate, which sets up an environment that is dangerous for patients and staff. Errors occur, some with tragic outcomes and lawsuits result at great cost to the hospital. The administration and the medical sides of the house obviously have different objectives with a whole different set of philosophies and strategies and never the twain shall meet. The scale needs to be heaviest on the medical side as far as licensed stafng. To thin out this layer of the team is ludicrous. How can anyone justify that as being a sensible decision?Karen Sanchez Port CharlotteLetters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules. Please keep them to less than 250 words.

The latest accolades came from Where to Retire magazine, which named the city one of its top retirement destinations in its January/February issue. Earlier this month the city was featured by Florida Homes Magazine, which wrote that Punta Gorda has emerged as a proud, vibrant community for families and retirees as well as a popular travel destination. Before the recent honors, the city was the top vote-getter in the Rand-McNally Best of the Road contest celebrating the best small towns in America. In the Where to Retire profile, Managing Editor Annette Fuller wrote, Those who have always wanted a boat docked in their backyard will find Punta Gorda is their dream come true. Charlotte Harbor, one of the nations largest, intersects with the Peace River, creating the ideal setting for fishing and sailing. The outdoor lifestyle continues with waterfront parks, 18 miles of bike paths and weekend events. Added bonuses include free parking downtown, free boat launches and a free loaner bike program. We could add to that the variety of restaurants and watering holes for every palate and pocketbook, galleries featuring local and regional artists and top-notch orchestral, chorale and theatrical organizations offering a plentiful slate of performances. Beyond the public infrastructure, real estate and cultural menu, what is often overlooked in profiles about Punta Gorda is the people. Weve always found Punta Gorda to be among the most welcoming communities. Many of its residents and businesspeople serve as unofficial ambassadors for the city, helping visitors discover its treasures and embracing new transplants to the many civic, fraternal, religious and cultural organizations that give the city such a distinct personality. Theres a finders pride among residents of the city and all of Charlotte County. People here love to share the news of their good fortune of discovering this place. With each glowing review or flatter ing spotlight, the word spreads. Careful management of that inevitable growth will allow city leaders to further enhance public amenities and give private groups the heft to stage and coordinate even more activities. Its a virtuous cycle. Kudos are due to Charlotte County tourism director Lorah Steiner and her staff, who coordinate the media trips, known as familiarization tours, that give travel and relocation writers the grist for the good news mill. The article reinforces what we know about the value in conducting media familiar ization trips and the long lead time it may take before an article is published, Steiner said. We will continue to work with members of the tourism industry to host journalists on individual and group media trips in an effort to gain earned editorial coverage in print, broadcast and electronic for mats with the goal of increasing visitors into Charlotte County. Its a story we never tire of reading and there are many chapters yet to tell. MArruES 1i7G13.ima'E' YxwiMyewI'm sendin4 alist of things Iwant to theM MillionsI 1 jackpot winnerstL1 I INOR


The Sun /Friday, December 20, 2013 C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINT If at any time while reading this article your attention wanders, you may have ADHD. If you pause to check your email sometime during the next three paragraphs, you should consult a doctor. If you fail to read this article all the way to the end, you should get on Adderall, Ritalin or some other drug to treat your condition as soon as possible. This isnt quite the standard for diagnosing attention-decit hyperactivity disorder, but its close. The New York Times ran a long expose on how the drug industry has stoked the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD that had a revelatory quote from Keith Conners, a doctor who has long advocated for the recognition of the disorder. Conners called the overdiagnosis of ADHD a national disaster of dangerous proportions, telling the Times that the rising number of cases is a concoction to justify the giving out of medication at unprecedented and unjustiable levels. This isnt bomb-throw ing from an outsider, but a critique from the namesake of the Conners ratings scale widely used to evaluate kids for ADHD. There is no doubt that ADHD is a legitimate neurological condition that makes kids (and those around them) miserable, that blights their potential and that can be alleviated by prescription stimulants like Adderall and Ritalin. There also is no doubt that diagnosis and treatment of the disorder has run wildly out of control on the promise of an easy pharmaceutical x to the natural rambunctiousness of childhood. The 6-year-old boy notoriously suspended from a Colorado elementary school on charges of sexual harassment for the offense of kissing a girls hand summarized the matter nicely: I just have a lot of energy! I mean 6-year-olds they have a lot of energy! No kidding. Our increasing unwillingness to distinguish between run-ofthe-mill childishness which, by denition, is heedless and frustrating at times and a condition requiring phar maceutical treatment is at the root of the ADHD epidemic. According to the forthcoming book The ADHD Explosion, 19 percent of high school-aged males have received a diagnosis. The numbers differ from state to state. In North Carolina, an astounding 30 percent of boys over age 9 are supposedly suffering from ADHD. Overall, 6 percent of children and adolescents in the United States are on drugs to treat ADHD. Its a wonder more kids arent diagnosed with it, given the overlap between the description of the disorder and failings to which we are all prone. The New York Times points out that the American Psychiatric Association criteria for ADHD include often has difculty waiting his or her turn and makes careless mistakes, hardly rare childhood behaviors. Lowering the bar further, drug companies sponsor online quizzes telling people they may have ADHD if they have trouble with things like remembering appointments or getting things in order. The drug companies for whom ADHD is a $9 billion-a-year business target mothers with alluring ads suggesting their children will become little angels through the wonders of risk-free stimulants. Their kids will get better grades, spend more quality time with the family, remember to take out the trash and shower everyone around them with good cheer. Who wouldnt want their child thus magically transformed? According to the Times report, the Food and Drug Administration has constantly rebuked the com panies for going beyond the evidence in selling visions of childhood Valhalla secured through the right drug. Undertrained primary-care physicians and worried parents default much too often to the diagnosis of ADHD and to the answer of a prescription. The next frontier is adult ADHD, with the promise of a vast new pharmaceutical market made up of people deprived of ADHD diagnoses when they were children. Some of these diagnoses will be warranted and life-changing, but others will be overreach prompted by vague and dubious symptoms, like inattentive op-ed reading. Sure, you got to the end of this article. But how about the next one? Rich Lowry is the editor of the National Review. Readers may reach him at comments. lowry@nationalreview. com.A manufactured ADHD epidemic Rich Lowry I miss Brody. So why did he have to go? The poor guy was put at the end of a rope because the writers of Homeland were at the end of their rope. They had conjured a hypnotic character who was both hero and villain, patriot and traitor. Brody was still on the run, but his creators had run out of ways to reconcile their curdled Marines poles without making the plots too implausible. In the nale, during a scene set in a CIA safe house in Iran, Brody fretted to Carrie that maybe he was, as a doctor in Caracas had said, a cockroach. Unkillable, bringing misery wherever I go. The talented Damian Lewis told The Times Dave Itzkoff, They ended up creating such a compelling, unpredictable, sad and ambiguous char acter who was capable of so much damage he was able to affect story on such a grand scale. They created a monster that they couldnt quite control. He added, The thought of having to continue to write him was too hard, perhaps, noting: Brodys a very unbalancing force. Its so easy to wipe the slate clean on TV. In real life, Americans must keep struggling to fathom the compelling, unpredictable, sad, ambiguous, unbalancing force, the young man on the run who sought to cause damage on a grand scale, and who has sparked a national debate about whether hes hero or villain, patriot or traitor. After a federal judge here said in a ruling on Monday that the NSAs collection of phone data on all Americans was almost Orwellian, an assault on privacy that would leave James Madison aghast, a civil liberties group that had plastered a D.C. bus with the words Thank you, Edward Snowden!, said it saw a signicant increase in donations to expand the campaign. Whatever we think of Snowden self-aggrandizing creep or self-sacricing crusader against creepy government spying or sociopath with stolen documents, as The Wall Street Journal put it, or someone who should swing from a tall oak tree, as John Bolton told Fox News it is absolutely clear that the NSA went wild with technology that allowed it to go wild. These technological toys turn everyone into thieves. It is clear that the balance of national security versus civil liberties is way off kilter. President Barack Obama said he welcomed a debate on the morality of his Big Brother eavesdropping program, but he never really wanted it. He irritated some of the tech CEOs who came for a meeting at the White House Tuesday by yanking the conversation from the overzealous NSA surveillance that creates suspicion of their complicity to the underwhelming rollout of Obamacare. Bloomberg News reported that Yahoos chief executive, Marissa Mayer, cautioned the president that backlash over U.S. spying could Balkanize the Internet, as countries put in place different standards to stymie surveillance. It took a passionate 64-year-old judge who likes exclamation points to nally holler Hold it! Its a wake-up call, said Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon, a leading critic of NSA spying cause for suspicion Shes waiting for a new home. Shes waiting for you.

Dearborn St. (941) 475-0636DOWD | 10 Maureen Dowd Since last months elections, Republicans have focused considerable attention on their governors, a far more promising group than the leaders and members of this unproductive, unpopular Congress and probably their best hope for nding a 2016 presidential winner. Two may be emerging as natural rivals, Chris Christie, the boister ous, assertive recently re-elected governor of New Jersey, and Scott Walker, the low-key, buttoned-up solidly conservative governor of Wisconsin. Christie is moderate in policy, but immoderate in temperament, noted Marc Thiessen, co-author of Walkers recent book, Unintimidated: A Governors Story and a Nations Challenge. Walker is moderate in temperament, but immoderate in policy. The question is: Which is a better model for the GOP nationally? That contrast has been evident as Christie sought to ride last months over whelming re-election and Walker pushed his book as a potential platform before what polls suggest could be a difcult 2014 re-election race. The potential Republican eld teems with contrasts: Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Rand Paul, R-Ky., acknowledge interest in running, while Walker and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., barely concede therell be a race. Texas Gov. Rick Perrys interest in a second bid is unsurprising, while New Hampshire and Iowa forays by Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., and former Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., seem mystifying. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., angers tea party types by accepting some Democratic ideas in a compromise budget plan, while Cruz, Paul and Rubio woo them by opposing it. Though a new Iowa poll shows Ryan with the highest favorability rating, there seems a consensus among top Republicans for nominating a governor. Four of the last six presidents have been governors, and no GOP senator has won since Warren Harding in 1920. Christie has generated the most speculation. Elected twice in a solidly blue state, he has done well among minority and women voters Republicans have had difculty winning, though his 2013 opponent was a woman, albeit a little known, underfunded one. But he might face serious problems in a national race: a bumptious, often overbearing manner and an ideology that, while fuzzy on contentious issues like immigration and abor tion, seems too centrist for the GOPs dominant conservatives. Hes already encountered trouble reconciling his centrist New Jersey approach with the need to woo those conservatives, inciting criticism by abandoning his pre-election support for lower in-state tuition for students entering the country illegally. And he had difculty explaining when local Democrats questioned why one of his appointees limited access to the George Washington Bridge from a town whose mayor had refused to endorse Christie. Walker, meanwhile, is downplaying his conservative social policy views and stressing his successes at eliminating Wisconsins budget decit and curbing government employee unions. At a breakfast sponsored by The Christian Science Monitor, he avoided direct answers to abor tion and immigration questions. Im pro-life but I dont focus on it, I dont obsess over it, he said, glossing over the fact he signed bills requiring women to undergo ultrasounds before abortions and requiring abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a local hospital. And while favoring legal immigration, he said, I dont get caught up in the bills or legislation here because its not what I was elected to do. I was elected to govern a state. Conservatives like his social views, anti-union efforts and rejection of Medicaid funds under the Obama health plan. But Walkers economic record could be a handicap (especially compared with Perrys): Wisconsin failed to add the 250,000 jobs he promised, gaining 24,305 last year, 34th among the 50 states according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Still, Walker may be better positioned than the other conservative governors, assuming he wins re-election. He seems unthreatening, comes from a purple swing state and may benet from proximity in Iowas crucial caucuses. Ohios John Kasich could face a GOP backlash because he decided to help his re-election by accepting the Medicaid funds, efforts by Louisianas Bobby Jindal and Kansas Sam Brownback to make reputations as conservative reformers have sapped their home-state popularity, and Perry faces a real challenge overcoming lingering damage from his 2012 campaign. When the real action starts, outspoken senatorial conservatives Paul and Cruz could generate support among Iowas evangelical conservatives. But an expected large conservative eld could help Christie. And a neighboring candidate with outspoken conservative views and a non-confrontational manner might do best of all. Carl Leubsdorf is Washington bureau chief of The Dallas Morning News.

Our Town Page 10 C The Sun /Friday, December 20, 2013 VIEWPOINT As the fth year of the Obama presidency draws to a close, it may be time to examine the unspoken but powerful assumption behind the policies of the president and his party. That is the assumption that in times of economic distress Americans would be, more than usual, supportive of or amenable to Big Government programs. The assumption was widely shared, and not just by Democrats. And it has pretty well been disproven, insofar as any abstract proposition can be disproven, in the ve years of the Obama presidency. The Obama assumption has its origins in the 1930s, in the apparent political and economic success of New Deal programs, and it was propagated with great success by the New Deal historians in books that were bestsellers in the years after World War II. It is possible to draw different lessons from the 1930s, as I did in my book Our Country: The Shaping of America from Roosevelt to Reagan. In this view, Franklin Roosevelts initial political success was due to the programs of the so-called First New Deal, which stopped the dizzying downward deationary spiral in 1933 and 1934. In contrast, the economic redistribution programs of the socalled Second New Deal produced labor unrest, a sharp recession and a sluggish recovery, and New Deal Democrats lost their congressional majorities. Roosevelt was re-elected in 1940 only because he was a seasoned leader in a world at war. Thats not how the Obama Democrats read history, however. Once in ofce with massive majorities, they wasted no time in passing an $800 billion stimulus package. They were condent that the stimulus would prove popular with voters. They must have been puzzled when it didnt and when the idea of bailing out underwater homeowners generated not demands for government aid, but the formation of the tea party movement. The Obama Democrats may have been puzzled as well when initial poll numbers showed major ities against Obamacare. In a time of economic distress, werent Americans interested in getting free stuff? This assumption ignored the fact that most Americans were not displeased with their current health insurance arrangements. And it overestimated the amount of sympathy that could be gener ated for the relatively few who couldnt get insurance because of pre-existing conditions or unanticipated accidents. In retrospect, its also plain that the Obama Democrats underestimated the difculty of creating a workable framework for gover nance of the health care sector, which makes up one-sixth of the economy. They had evidently read too much Arthur Schlesinger on the glories of the New Deal and too little Friedrich Hayek on the futility of central planning in a complex society. So they forged ahead with their legislation even after the American people, through the unlikely medium of the voters of Massachusetts, said, Please dont pass this bill. People would get to like it and to know what was in it after it was passed. Looking back, it seems that most Americans instinctively shared Hayeks skepticism more than they hankered for Schlesingers celebration of big government. Some liberals seem to understand this. In a column for The New York Times, Thomas Edsall quotes Harvard economist Benjamin Friedman as saying that in times when a nation is undergoing a decline in the material realm. it may be less than usually amenable to greater generosity toward those who, through some combination of natural circumstance, market forces and sheer luck, have been left behind. History provides support for that. In the distressed 1930s, when FDR expanded American government, our Anglosphere cousins in Britain, Canada and Australia voted for governments that opposed similar policies. The Obamacare rollout that began nearly three months ago has proved more disastrous than all but a few critics of the legislation dared to predict. Polling shows increasing opposition to the legislation and to the credibility of Obama Democrats who, falsely, assured people they could keep their policies and their doctors if they liked them. The apparent skepticism of most voters that government could competently administer the health care sector seems to have been justied and then some. Gallup reports that 72 percent of Americans see big government, not big business or big labor, as the biggest threat to the nations future the highest number since the question was rst asked in 1965. The Obama Democrats assumed Americans would embrace big government policies. They seem to have proved the opposite.

Piece after piece, the governments case has fallen apart. (The old joke of No Such Agency might become No Stopping That Agency.) As The Times chief Washington correspondent Carl Hulse tweeted, Judge Richard J. Leon was nominated to the bench by President George W. Bush on the notable date of Sept. 10, 2001 the eve of the day that reshaped the American psyche, sometimes in unsettling ways that erred on the side of security rather than the values that make America. After W. and Dick Cheney ignored warnings of an al-Qaida strike, they proliferated a mindset that there was no step too far to protect us from that happening again, be it attacking a country that hadnt attacked us, torturing, warrantless wiretapping, spying Stasi-style on our allies or denying prisoners due process. Leon wrestled with the legality of holding detainees at Guantnamo Bay and now he suggests that the NSA snooping may be unconstitutional. The governments legal precedent, he wrote in a ruling that will rever berate in Congress and at the Supreme Court, has been eclipsed by a cellphone-centric lifestyle heretofore inconceivable. Its one thing to say that people expect phone companies to occasionally provide information to law enforcement, he wrote, it is quite another to suggest that our citizens expect all phone companies to operate what is effectively a joint intelligence-gathering operation with the government. Though the Justice Department tried to justify the mammoth hoovering by insisting on the need for speed, the judge pointed out that the NSA couldnt cite a single instance in which its haystack of data had produced the needle to puncture an imminent attack. Its always the case that technology is invented and used before its consequences are known. And it is also true that there are terrorists who want to hurt us. But Leon struck a blow for the proposition that our moral and legal values regarding privacy are not obsolete just because some government employees out in suburban Maryland in a secretive agency with its own exit off the BaltimoreWashington Parkway got carried away with their cool new toys. Maureen Dowd is a New York Times columnist. Readers may reach her via www.newyork PAGE 9 Sophisticated politicians and journalists nd the movie Dave simplistic. The same is said of Sen. Tom Coburn when he has his annual moment of life imitating art. Once a year, Coburn plays Murray Blum, the boring accountant in the movie who uses basic common sense to cut the federal budget as a favor to his friend, a presidential impersonator, played by Kevin Kline. He needs to nd $650 million to keep a homeless shelter open. Murray shows him that the money can readily be found in wasteful and unquestioned government programs such as one that absurdly aims to make Americans feel better about their cars. There are hundreds of such programs tucked away in various agency budgets and, like his ctional doppelganger, Coburn nds the most egregious ones. Weve had the Defense Department and people in the other nondefense discretionary departments screaming the cupboard is bare, Coburn said. Theres nothing else to cut. The fact is that just isnt true. The Oklahoma senators Wastebook lists 100 of them. Theres the truly ludicrous (a $125,000 3-D pizza printer for astronauts) to the mildly ludicrous (a State Department effort to get liked on Facebook). The National Aeronautics and Space Administration spent $3 million to determine whether there was intelligent life in Congress. And, apparently, our government doesnt know about this newfangled thing called Google. While some of us can type in the word infrastructure and hit the Im Feeling Lucky button, the Department of Commerces National Technical Information Service is spending $50 million to look up easily accessible stuff. Did you know you can deduct certain medical procedures if they are necessary for your job? Our irrational tax code allows brothels in Nevada to take $17.5 million in exemptions for such necessities as breast implants. Pole workers of a different sort those tending to electrical and other wires got a $10,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to put on the PowerUp project, a 90-minute dance that will feature bucket trucks, cranes and eld trucks, plus a set of 25 utility poles, all set before a live audience. OK, ridiculing the NEA is shooting sh in a bar rel. But Coburn also takes on a Republican sacred cow: the Department of Everything, as he calls it, which, among other things, is studying beef jerky. This summer, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel wailed that because of the mandatory spending cuts under sequestration, We risk elding a force that is unprepared. Coburn found plenty of savings he could use to prepare it. The Pentagon is leaving 2,000 Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles, which cost $500,000 each, in Afghanistan to be destroyed after U.S. forces withdraw. Then theres the Armys $297 million mega-blimp, or Long Endurance MultiIntelligence Vehicle, which was intended for Afghanistan but made only one trip: a short ight over New Jersey. As spending headed toward $300 million, the military sold it to a private contractor at the resale price of $301,000. Even as the National Guard is being cut by 8,000 troops, $10 million was spent on Superman movie tie-ins. Pretty soon youre talking about real money. Congress authorized the purchase of 21 C-27 transport planes despite testimony from a former Air Force chief of staff in 2012 that the Air Force didnt want them. But theyd already contracted for the planes, which were mothballed. When we buy $700 million worth of airplanes and half of them were going to cut up and half of them were going to put in the desert, it doesnt t with common sense, Coburn said. The lack of common sense is everywhere. Who green-lighted the Popular Romance Project? The National Endowment for the Humanities has given $914,000 to a study of the origins of romance. Kindle Alert: For $100, read the collected works of Danielle Steel. Meanwhile, FBI agents are ready for their close-up. The FBI spends $1.5 million each year to educate Hollywood producers and writers on how to portray the agency. There are other signs of a lurid fascination with pop culture. The almost bankrupt U.S. Postal Service has paid $556,000 to the futurist Faith Popcorn to envision a viable future for itself. And New York and New Jersey took $65 million in Superstorm Sandy emergency relief money to make television ads to encourage people to visit. In all, the Wastebook chronicles $30 billion in stupid spending, enough to make sequestration unnecessary. Coburn isnt a mindless tea party person who favors no spending, and hes willing to gore his own ox. He just wants someone to listen when his inner Murray Blum goes through the books. Its a shame how only the good go home early. Coburn is abiding by the term limits he set for himself and wont seek another term in 2016. The Pentagon wont mind his departure, but the rest of us will miss him. Margaret Carlson is a Bloomberg News columnist.

At this point, neither we nor the San Bernardino authorities have any information that would indicate Edly is in Charlotte County, or that he is headed here, Bowe said Thursday. Edly has a history of domestic violence-related arrests, starting in Port Charlotte. In February 2005, at age 20, Edly was charged with domestic battery, according to CCSO records. A second arrest, in November 2008, occurred in Brandon, east of Tampa. In both misdemeanor cases, charges were dropped, according to both Charlotte and Hillsborough court records. In the 2005 Port Charlotte case, court records show Edly went through a pretrial-diversion program, which includes batterers inter vention classes. The State Attorneys Ofce then dropped the charges after Edly completed the program later that year. San Bernardino police believe Edly killed his wife sometime between Nov. 29 and Dec 1, before going on the run, the San Bernardino Sun reported. Police were called to check on her welfare Dec. 1. Family members said the two had been estranged for a few months. The couple have two children together, but they reportedly were not in the home at the time of the murder.

See page 4.10 things to know MOSCOW In a surprise decision, President Vladimir Putin announced Thursday that jailed former oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky will be pardoned, a move that will see his top foe and Russias onetime richest man freed after more than a decade in prison. The development, along with an amnesty for two jailed members of the Pussy Riot punk band and the 30-member crew of a Greenpeace protest ship, appeared aimed at easing international criticism of Russias human rights record ahead of Februarys Winter Olympics in Sochi, Putins pet project. Putin waited until just after his tightly choreographed annual news conference to make the announcement, dropping the biggest news of the day after journalists had already peppered him with questions in a four-hour marathon. Putin said the 50-year-old Khodorkovsky, who was set to be released next August, had submitted an appeal for pardon, something he had refused to do before. He has spent more than 10 years behind bars. Its a tough punishment, Putin said. Hes citing humanitarian aspects his mother is ill. A decree to pardon him will be signed shortly. The head of the Kremlins United Russia faction said he expects Khodorkovsky to celebrate the New Year at home with his family. Khodorkovskys son, Pavel, tweeted: Very happy news. Waiting to speak with my father to learn more. Putins announcement came as a big surprise for me, totally out of the blue, Khodorkovskys mother, Maria, told RT television. We are old people, and we are waiting, hoping to live to the moment when we can embrace him, his father, Boris, said in remarks posted on the online newspaper.Putin plays political chessBy VLADIMIR ISACHENKOV and NATALIYA VASILYEVAASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERSRussian president frees jailed tycoon, band membersPUTIN | 4 ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.

CHICAGO The detached dad, turning up his nose at diapering and too busy to bathe, dress and play with his kids, is mostly a myth, a big government survey suggests. Most American fathers say they are heavily involved in hands-on parenting, the researchers found. The nationally representative survey shows fathers involvement has increased slightly since the government rst asked in 2002, coinciding with research since then that bolsters the benets of handson fathering. The results are encouraging and important because others have found the more involved dads are, the better the outcomes for their children, said researcher Jo Jones of the National Center for Health Statistics, part of the Centers for Disease Control Prevention. She co-authored the report released Friday. More academic success, fewer behavior problems and healthier eating habits are just some of the ways fathers involvement has been linked with childrens well-being. Times have changed, said Robert Loftus, 34, of Yonkers, N.Y. He quit a six-gure sales job a year ago to care for his two young children while his wife works full time.

Page 2 WIRE The Sun /Friday, December 20, 2013 NATIONAL NEWS WASHINGTON (AP) In a sharp and unexpected shift, the national debate over U.S. government surveillance seems to be turning in favor of reining in the National Security Agencys expansive spying powers at home and abroad. Its happened suddenly, over a span of just three days. First, a federal judge ruled that the NSAs bulk collection of telephone records was unconstitutional, and then a presidential advisory panel recommended sweeping changes to the agency. Together, the developments are ratcheting up the pressure on President Barack Obama to scale back the controversial surveillance programs. Even Russian President Vladimir Putin chimed in on Thursday. He said U.S. surveillance efforts are necessary to ght terrorism and not a cause for repentance, but he, too, said they should be limited by clear rules. Obama is in no way obligated to make substantial changes. And, coun tering the public criticism he faces, he hears internal appeals from intelligence ofcials who insist the collection of phone and Internet data is necessary to protect the U.S. from terror attacks. But even that argument has been undermined in the course of an extraordinary week. Federal Judge Richard Leon said in a ruling on Monday its effect stayed, pending appeal that even if the phone data collection is constitutional, there is little evidence that it has prevented terror attacks. The intelligence advisory panel, which had access to signicant amounts of classied information and counted as a member a former acting director of the CIA, came to the same conclusion in its 300-page report. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., a erce critic of the NSA programs, concluded, What this says to the millions of Americans who have been concerned that the government knows who they called and when they called and for how long, this says it wasnt essential for preventing attacks. The White House has already rejected one proposal from the task force, which would have allowed for a civilian to head the NSA. While Obama spokesman Jay Carney said Thursday that the president was open to each of the panels other 45 recommendations, a U.S. ofcial familiar with the deliberations said that Obama rejected a handful of the proposals out of hand when he met with the panel members this week. The president indicated he was comfortable with about half of the recommendations but thinks some others need further study, according to the ofcial. That ofcial commented only on condition of anonymity because the ofcial was not authorized to discuss the process by name. Obama is expected to announce his decisions in January. Congress has been jarred by the new focus on government surveillance. For years, lawmakers had shown little interest in curtailing the programs, but an unusual coalition of conservative Republicans and liberal Democrats has now taken up the issue.NSA debate shifts in favor of surveillance limits LOS ANGELES (AP) Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson suspended from the series indenitely after making disparaging remarks about gays is getting some support from key followers. Sarah Palin posted a picture on her Facebook page of her with the reality show clan with the message, Free Speech is an endangered species. And Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal also lamented the suspension on free speech terms. Its a messed-up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended, said the governor in a statement Thursday (the show is lmed in his state). A&E announced Wednesday what it called a hiatus for Robertson, 67, after he disparaged gays in the January edition of GQ magazine. He also said that, growing up in Louisiana before the Civil Rights movement, he never saw mistreatment of blacks. In a statement, A&E said it was extremely disappointed to see Robertsons anti-gay remarks, which it said were based on his personal beliefs and do not reect those of A&E Networks or the show. A&E Networks, a joint venture of The Walt Disney Co. and Hearst Corp., called itself a supporter of the lesbian and gay community. The channels move was lauded by the gay and lesbian media advocacy group GLAAD, which had quickly condemned Robertsons comments. Whats clear is that such hateful anti-gay comments are unacceptable to fans, viewers, and networks alike, said GLAAD spokesman Wilson Cruz. Robertsons removal has sent a strong message that discrimination is neither a Christian nor an American value. Robertson and his extended family became wealthy manufacturing duck calls and were turned into TV and pop culture stars by Duck Dynasty, which has set cable ratings records for a nonction series. Several family members appeared in this years Macys Thanksgiving parade. In his GQ interview, Robertson was asked his denition of sinful behavior. Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there, such as bestiality, he said. GQ said he then paraphrases a biblical reference: Dont be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers they wont inherit the kingdom of God. Dont deceive yourself. Its not right. Robertson and his family had no comment on his hiatus, A&E said on their behalf. He may be in some previously taped scenes when the show returns Jan. 15 for its fth season, a network spokesman said. Robertson did respond to initial criticism of his GQ remarks. I myself am a product of the s who indulged in sex and drugs until hitting bottom and accepting Jesus as his savior, he said in a statement. Although his mission is to teach people that men and women are meant to be together, Robertson said he would never treat anyone with disrespect because they are different.Duck Dynasty star on hiatus after gay commentsWASHINGTON (AP) With control of the Senate at stake in next years elections, President Barack Obamas decision to name retiring Democratic Sen. Max Baucus as ambassador to China sets off a chain reaction that could give the White House and Democrats an edge in pre venting Republicans from gaining a Senate majority. The beneciaries could be Montanas Lt. Gov. John Walsh, a Democrat seeking Baucus seat, and, thanks to the dominoes of Senate seniority, Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, who is facing a difcult re-election. The advantages would be on the margins, potentially giving the two Democrats a slight boost. But in a series of close elections with Republicans needing to gain a net of six seats to recapture control of the Senate, any lift for Democrats could help them retain control and protect Obamas agenda. Though the White House has yet to announce the nomination, several Democratic ofcials conrmed it and White House spokesman Jay Carney noted that Baucus has been directly engaged for more than two decades in work to deepen the relationship between the United States and China. Its not the rst time an ambassadorship to China would have protected Obamas political anks. He nominated Jon Huntsman in 2009, essentially sidelining a potential Republican presidential adversary in the 2012 election. If Montanas Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock appoints Walsh to ll the Baucus seat, as widely expected, that would give the Democratic candidate close to 10 months in the job and higher visibility against the likely Republican candidate, rst-term Rep. Steve Daines. On leaving the Senate, Baucus would give up the gavel of Finance Committee chairman. Potential replacements are Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., who has announced he wont seek another term, or Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore. If Wyden assumes the chairmanship, then Landrieu would be on track to take over the Senate Energy Committee that Wyden currently chairs. For Landrieu, the chairmanship of the Energy Committee would give her greater inuence over energy policy, an important perch for Louisiana where offshore drilling is a major part of the states economy. Rep. Bill Cassidy, R-La., and retired Air Force Col. Rob Maness, a tea party supporter, hope to challenge Landrieu, and Republican outside groups have aired ads seeking to tie her to Obamas health care reform law. Republicans are targeting vulnerable Democratic incumbents in states carried by Republican Mitt Romney last year, including races in Arkansas, Louisiana, Alaska, and North Carolina. GOP candidates are favored in open seat races in South Dakota and West Virginia and the party hopes to compete in states like Iowa, Michigan and elsewhere to potentially take control. Democrats have fewer opportunities to challenge Republican incumbents but have set their sights on GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.Dems look to solidify Senate control AP PHOTOThis 2012 photo released by A&E shows, from left, Phil Robertson, Jase Robertson, Si Robertson and Willie Robertson from the A&E series, Duck Dynasty. | NATIONAL NEWS BRIEFSWhite House threatens to veto Iran sanctions billWASHINGTON (AP) The White House says it would veto new congressional legislation that would toughen sanctions against Iran. Senators from both parties introduced the legislation on Thursday. They did so despite appeals from the White House, which wants to avoid implementing new penalties while the U.S. is holding nuclear negotiations with the Islamic republic. White House spokesman Jay Carney says the sanctions would under mine American diplomatic efforts. The bill sets restrictions that would go into effect if Tehran violates an interim nuclear deal it reached with world powers last month or lets the agreement expire without a long-term accord. A Senate vote wont happen until January at the earliest, and its unclear whether the bill will have enough support to pass.Police: Suicide note found at home of Reno suspectRENO, Nev. (AP) A suspect in a deadly hospital shooting in Reno left a suicide note at his home and claimed he had botched surgery three years ago before killing a doctor and himself this week, police said Thursday. Police didnt outline a motive, but the new details could give a fuller picture of why the urology clinic was targeted and two other people were wounded. Police also conrmed that the shooter was 51-year-old Alan Oliver Frazier of Plumas County, Calif. Police searched his home on Wednesday. Inside, we located a typed letter indicating the suspects intention to commit this horric act, said Reno police Lt. William Rulla.Report: Fired nuke general misbehaved in RussiaWASHINGTON (AP) The Air Force general who was red from his post as head of U.S. land-based nuclear missile forces engaged in inappropriate behavior while on ofcial business in Russia last summer, including heavy drinking and associating with suspect women, according to an investigation report released Thursday. The events took place during a trip Maj. Gen. Michael Carey made in July as the leader of a U.S. government delegation to a nuclear security training exercise. At the time, he was commander of the 20th Air Force, responsible for 450 Minuteman 3 intercontinental ballistic missiles stationed in ve U.S. states.DHS removed more than 368,000 immigrants in 2013WASHINGTON (AP) The Obama administration removed 368,644 immigrants from the country last year. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director John Sandweg says 235,093 of those immigrants were arrested at or near the U.S. border with Mexico. This is the fewest number of immigrants deported by ICE since the end of President George W. Bushs administration. Last year ICE removed more than 409,000 immigrants. Sandweg says significant increases in the numbers of Central Americans arrested along the Mexican border led to the drop in deportations this year. He said those cases take more time. The Border Patrol made more than 409,000 arrests at the border during the 2013 budget year that ended in September. ICE has removed more than 1.9 million immigrants since 2009.Oil trains raise concerns in small towns, citiesWOLF POINT, Mont. (AP) Its tough to miss the trains hauling crude oil out of the Northern Plains. They are growing more frequent by the day, mile-long processions of black tank cars that rumble through wheat elds and towns, along rivers and national parks. As common as they have become across the U.S. and Canada, ofcials in dozens of towns and cities where the oil trains travel say they are concerned with the possibility of a major derailment, spill or explosion, while their level of preparation varies widely. Stoking those fears was the July crash of a crude train from the Bakken oil patch in Lac Megantic, Quebec not far from the Maine border that killed 47 people. A Nov. 8 train derailment in rural Alabama where several oil cars exploded reinforced them. Its a grave concern, said Dan Sietsema, the emergency coordinator in northeastern Montanas Roosevelt County, where oil trains now pass regularly through the county seat of Wolf Point. It has the ability to wipe out a town like Wolf Point.Obama commutes sentences for 8 drug convictionsWASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama on Thursday commuted the sentences of eight people he said were serving unduly harsh drug sentences in the most expansive use yet of his power to free inmates. All eight were sentenced under old federal guidelines that treated convictions for crack cocaine offenses harsher than those involving the powder form of the drug. Obama also pardoned 13 others for various crimes. The president signed the Fair Sentencing Act in 2010 to cut penalties for crack cocaine offenses in order to reduce the disparity. But the act addressed only new cases, not old ones. Obama said those whose sentences he commuted Thursday have served at least 15 years in prison, many under mandatory minimums that required judges to impose long sentences even if they didnt think the time t the crime.Goldstein, publisher of Screw magazine, dies in NYNEW YORK (AP) Al Goldstein, the bearded, bird-ipping publisher of Screw magazine who smashed down legal bar riers against pornography and raged against politicians, organized religion and anything that even suggested good taste, died Thursday, according to a friend.

The Sun /Friday, December 20, 2013 WIRE Page 3 ALLTHENEWS YOUNEED,SEVENDAYS A WEEK. STATE NEWS TALLAHASSEE (News Service of Florida) Safety and consumer advocates want state lawmakers to put the brakes on a bipartisan measure that could allow 75 mph speed limits on some highways and also boost speeds on other roads. Representatives from the National Safety Council and the Consumer Federation of the Southeast, along with Wakulla County Sheriff Charlie Creel, said Thursday the proposal (SB 392) by Sens. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, and Jeff Clemens, D-Lake Worth, will make roads less safe as motorists fur ther surpass speed limits that exceed their ability to safely operate vehicles. Raising the speed limit is essentially going to encourage people to drive faster, John Ulczycki, vice president of strategic initiatives with the National Safety Council, said during a news conference at the Florida Press Center. Theyre not just driving the speed limit, they will continue to drive 5 to 7 miles above the speed limit. Ulczycki projected that a 5 mph increase in the speed limit could result in an increase of 100 trafc fatalities a year on Florida roads. The proposal by Brandes and Clemens would direct the state Department of Transportation to deter mine the safe minimum and maximum speed limits on all divided highways that have at least four lanes. The DOT would then be able to increase travel on the states limited access highways to 75 mph and raise the maximum posted limits on divided fourlane highways in sparsely populated rural areas from 65 mph to 70 mph. The DOT could also hike speeds by 5 mph, to 65 mph, on other roads they deem safe. Floridas highways have had a 70 mph maximum since 1996, the last time the speed limit was reviewed. Just prior to the start of the news conference, Brandes and Clemens issued a joint statement with the National Motorists Association that said the legislative proposal is only to allow the DOT to determine if limits should be raised 5 miles per hour on certain roads. The data indicates that many drivers are already traveling at these speeds on highways and trafc research shows that traveling with the free ow of trafc is safer for the motoring public, Brandes said in the release. I understand that speeding tickets provide an important source of revenue for public safety, but supposed safety experts made the same claims when we repealed the national speed limit, Clemens said in the release. The data proves that raising the speed limit has not resulted in more fatalities. The Waunakee, Wis.based National Motorists Association, founded in 1982 to advocate against the national maximum 55 mph speed limit, is a motorist group dedicated to the protection of motorists rights and freedoms. In the release with Brandes and Clemens, the group claimed that research indicated there is a greater risk of trafc accidents from vehicles driving slower than the average free-owing speed of trafc. Since 1995 speed limits have steadily increased on highways to 70, 75, or more. During that period of time the national highway fatality rate has fallen 36 percent. This is because free-owing trafc is safer, John Bowman, the associations communications director, said in the release. Motorists generally drive at speeds they feel comfortable and safe at regardless of the posted speed limit.Safety advocates object to raising highway speed limits | STATE NEWS BRIEFSSupreme Court OKs new lethal injection procedureTALLAHASSEE (AP) The execution of a man who killed a prison guard while on death row for two other murders can go forward after the state Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Floridas new lethal injection procedure is effective. Askari Abdullah Muhammad, formerly known as Thomas Knight, was scheduled for execution Dec. 3. The court on Nov. 18 delayed it and ordered hearings on a claim that the sedative midazolam hydrochloride doesnt prevent pain after being administered. Circuit Judge Phyllis Rosier from Bradford County earlier this month ruled that theres no credible evidence that condemned inmates would suffer pain if the drug is administered in proper amounts. After reviewing Rosiers report, the justices concluded that midazolam hydrochloride effectively renders condemned inmates unconscious before drugs to induce paralysis and cardiac arrest are administered.Little Tony in prison for life for Boulis murderFORT LAUDERDALE (AP) Anthony Little Tony Ferrari was sentenced Thursday to life in prison without parole for helping orchestrate the 2001 mob-style slaying of a prominent businessman who ran a eet of gambling ships and founded the Miami Subs restaurant chain. A jury this week recommended against the death penalty for the 56-year-old Ferrari in the shooting death of Konstaninos Gus Boulis, former chief of the SunCruz Casinos. Circuit Judge Ilona Holmes said Thursday she would not override that recommendation and prosecutors did not ask for it. Holmes did, however, tack on another 30 years for a murder conspiracy conviction. Trial testimony showed that Ferrari and Anthony Big Tony Moscatiello plotted to have Boulis killed by a mob hit man in a battle for control of the SunCruz eet. Witnesses testied that Moscatiello had ties to New Yorks Gambino crime family. Moscatiello, 75, was on trial with Ferrari but was granted a mistrial when his attorney became ill. He will be retried at some point in 2014, and prosecutors again are expected to seek the death penalty.Scammers posing as bill collectors in Tampa BayTAMPA (AP) A rash of text messages have arrived on the cellphones of Verizon Wireless customers in Tampa Bay, claiming to come from the company. The Tampa Bay Times reports that in recent days, messages warn customers that their accounts have been or are about to be suspended. If the customers click a link provided in these messages, they will be asked to supply personal information such as birth dates, Social Security numbers, drivers license numbers and credit card information. Similarly, Duke Energy customers have gotten phone calls in recent weeks from people demanding immediate payment of past-due bills or checks that did not clear. Customers who dont cooperate will have their power shut off. Both are scams. Ofcials say reports of phony utility collections have picked up over the holidays.Council allows autistic boy to keep chickensDEBARY (AP) A 3-year-old autistic boy will get to keep his backyard chickens thanks to a decision by the DeBary City Council. The council voted unanimously on Wednesday to grant an exemption to the family of J.J. Hart that allows the child to keep his chickens. Earlier in December the council voted to end a pilot program that allowed residents to keep chickens with a permit. The boys family says hes made signicant progress since they got the chickens, which were recommended by a physician as a form of therapy. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports the familys lawyer had threatened a lawsuit if the child wasnt allowed to keep the chickens.

The House Ethics Committee announced Monday that it was launching a formal investigation of him. Former Rep. Connie Mack IV, who represented the area for eight years before a failed run for Senate last year, has been mentioned as a possible primary challenger if Radel runs for re-election next year. Radel had been in ofce for 10 months when he was charged. His district includes the Gulf Coast cities of Fort Myers and Naples. The drug arrest derailed a seemingly promising career. After a career as a TV news anchor, he started a media-relations rm and hosted an early-morning conservative talk-radio show in southwest Florida. He married another news anchor and they had a baby. When he decided to run for Congress, he became involved in a bruising, six-way GOP primary, openly targeting opponents on the Internet and facing criticism for his rms ownership of explicitly named websites. But he was backed by the local tea party movement and Republican luminaries, including Mack and Sen. Marco Rubio, and clinched the GOP nomination. He cruised to victory in November. Things were seemingly going well for Radel. His wife was featured in a glowing local news segment about how the couple were adjusting to life in D.C., he had sponsored a handful of bills, and he was interviewed by several inside-the-Beltway publications. He was active on Twitter and wrote pieces for Buzzfeed about rap music. (He dubbed Public Enemys Fight the Power a conservative anthem because I believe when government expands it becomes a political tool meant to oppress.) He supported drug testing for food-stamp recipients and championed cuts in sheep-farm subsidies, keeping good on his conservative promise. Then, on Oct. 29, Radel attempted to buy $250 worth of cocaine from an undercover police ofcer in a Washington, D.C., neighborhood. According to court documents, federal agents confronted the congressman and he invited them to his apartment, where he turned over a vial of the drug. A DEA ofcial who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release details of the case in his own name said Radel was identied to author ities as a cocaine buyer by his suspected dealer. Court documents said the lawmaker had purchased the drug on several previous occasions.RADELFROM PAGE 1 whereas in the past maybe people were more focused on career. The results build on volumes of research showing changes in the American family since the baby boom years and before, when women were mostly stay-athome moms and dads were the major breadwinners. As those roles shifted, so did the view that moms are the only nurturers. University of Chicago sociologist Jennifer Bellamy, who also studies fathering, said some old stereotypes persist, that dads are sort of the co-pilots in their families, absent or less involved than moms. But she said the survey conrms that fathers are quite involved in a variety of different and important ways. The study involved nearly 4,000 fathers aged 15 to 44 who were interviewed in person between 2006 and 2010. One caveat: They self-reported their involvement, without input from their partners or others. Most men were married or living with a partner. Key ndings among fathers living with children younger than 5: 9 in 10 bathed, diapered, helped them use the toilet or get dressed at least several times weekly. Even higher numbers played with them and ate meals with them that often. Almost 2 out of 3 read to them at least several times weekly. Among dads living with kids aged 5-18: More than 9 out of 10 ate meals with them at least several times weekly and talked with them about what happened during the kids day that often. Almost 2 out of 3 helped with homework several times weekly. About half took their kids to or from activities that often. Overall, almost 90 percent of dads said they thought they were doing at least a good job of fathering.DADSFROM PAGE 1 The character to me is all about the spirit of Christmas, Sinclair said. If we leave Christmas to ourselves, wed be all right. This holiday season, however, not all reactions to non-white Santas have been jolly. At Indiana University in Bloomington earlier this month, a dormitory bulletin board posed the question, Can Santa Claus be a black man? in hopes of generating fruitful discussion about racial stereotypes. Instead, it generated outrage on social media because it also asked other questions that played to stereotypes, such as whether a black Santa would only visit the ghet to. The display, which a university spokesman described as well-intended but misguided, was taken down. Last week, a high school teacher in Rio Rancho, N.M., was disciplined, and apologized, for telling a black student who dressed as Santa Claus, Dont you know Santa Claus is white? Why are you wear ing that? The teacher has since been placed on paid administrative leave. Also last week, Fox News host Megyn Kelly sparked a heated debate when she declared on air, And by the way, for all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white, during a panel discussion about a bloggers essay arguing that children of other races could feel alienated by constantly seeing Santa as white. Kelly later said her comments were motivated by humor, not by any racial fear or loathing. That situation was promptly skewered by comics such as Comedy Centrals Jon Stewart and Kenan Thompson of NBCs Saturday Night Live, who, clad in a full Santa suit and beard, joked about Kellys comments and quipped: You heard of secret Santa? Well, heres a secret for you: Im black as hell! Richard Reyes, 62, of Houston, who has por trayed Pancho Claus for 32 years, found this years debate over Santas race surprising. He has seen Santa transformed into many images for years, he said. In his version, Pancho Claus has a goatee, and accessorizes his zoot suit with sunglasses and a fedora. For these diverse times, its important for children to see Santa in all these different forms, Reyes said.SANTAFROM PAGE 1 Analysts viewed the decision as a clever step ahead of the Sochi Olympics. At rst blush, the pardon for Khodorkovsky appears to be a rather canny move that will throw Putins critics off-balance in the run-up to Sochi, while sending a clear message of self-condence to his domestic political opponents, Andrew Weiss of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace said in a written commentary. In October 2003, masked commandos stormed into Khodorkovskys jet on the tarmac of a Siberian air port and arrested him at gunpoint. He was found guilty of tax evasion in 2005 and convicted of embezzlement in a second case in 2010. Critics have dismissed the charges against Khodorkovsky as a Kremlin vendetta for challenging Putins power. During Putins rst term as president, the oil ty coon angered the Kremlin by funding opposition parties and also was believed to harbor personal political ambitions. Putin didnt say a word Thursday about the fate of Khodorkovskys business partner, Platon Lebedev, who was convicted and sentenced in the same trials. Putins spokesman Dmitry Peskov said he hadnt asked for a pardon. During the news conference, Putin was asked if Khodorkovsky could face yet another criminal case that would keep him behind bars longer. He gave a vague answer, saying he doesnt see grounds for that, but prosecutors must investigate alleged offenses. At his news conference, Putin also conrmed that an amnesty approved Wednesday by the Kremlin-controlled par liament will apply to the two members of Pussy Riot still in jail and to the Greenpeace crew facing hooliganism charges for their protest at a Russian oil rig in the Arctic. Putin still stood by his strong criticism of Pussy Riots irreverent 2010 protest at Moscows main cathedral, describing it as a publicity stunt that crossed all barriers. He also alleged that the Greenpeace activists, who spent two months in jail after their Arctic protest before being granted bail, were trying to hurt Russias economic interests.PUTINFROM PAGE 1 LONDON (AP) Hunks of plaster and dust rained down on a packed audience when the ceiling of a London theater partially collapsed Thursday night.

The collapse at the Apollo Theatre took place around 8:15 p.m. during a performance of The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time at the height of the Christmas holiday season. Plaster and masonry from a section of the ceiling tumbled down, bringing parts of the theaters balconies down with it onto the audience, police said. More than 700 people were in the theater at the time, according to the London Fire Brigade. Ofcials said most of the injured were walking wounded with upper-body injuries, and that all are conscious and breathing. Police and re ofcials said it was too soon to say what had caused the par tial collapse of the ceiling, but that a full investigation is being carried out. Dee Kearney said she was just three or four seats from the stage when an actor shouted watch out! Then what we felt was debris falling on us, a loud bang, and then all of a sudden there was a coat of dust, she said. Scott Daniels, an American tourist who lives in the Dallas area, said hed managed to buy a last-minute ticket to the acclaimed production just before show time. I was lucky to get one seat that they had left over, he told The Associated Press. About 40 or 45 minutes into the show, he said, he started hearing noises and screaming. I thought, maybe this is part of the play, he said. All of a sudden, plaster starts raining down, huge hunks of plaster The lights went out and everything lled with dust everybody was coughing and choking. He said he made it out with a couple scrapes, though he saw others with more serious lacerations. Dust-covered theatergoers, many with bandaged heads, were treated by dozens of emergency workers in the street outside the Apollo and at a nearby theater. City buses were commandeered to usher some of the wounded to hospitals. Initially, London Ambulance Service said more than 80 people had been injured. But noting that the initial situation was confusing, it later adjusted that number to say it had treated 76 patients, with 51 taken to hospitals. Seven people suffered serious injuries but there were no fatalities and none of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening, ofcials said. The re department said no one was trapped in the theater, explaining that rescuers had helped evacuate some theatergoers who had been trapped by the nature of their injuries where they had stood when the ornate plastering came down. Chief Superintendent Paul Rickett said that so far, we know that a number of items of masonry have fallen down from the ceiling. There is no suggestion at this stage that this was as a result of a criminal act, however, at this stage we are keeping an open mind, he added.Over 75 injured in partial London theater collapse TALLAHASSEE (AP) A Florida man was charged with helping his brothers killer and another murderer escape from prison with bogus court documents, authorities said Thursday in announcing more charges in the scheme. Willie Slater Jr. helped Charles Walker and Joseph Jenkins escape from a Panhandle prison this fall because he owed Jenkins a favor, Florida Department of Law Enforcement special agent Danny Banks said. Jenkins and Slater were behind bars together, and Jenkins helped get Slater out of prison in 2009 by giving false testimony that he committed a home invasion Slater was convicted of, Banks said. Walker murdered Slaters brother, Cedric, in 1999. It seems odd that he would help get his brothers murderer out of jail, but he owed a signicant favor to Mr. Jenkins which he fullled, Banks said. Even stranger, Slater was arrested after Jenkins and Walker were caught and charged with making death threats to Walkers family. Jenkins and Walker were captured Oct. 19 and Slater was arrested Oct. 28. Slater was one of four people charged with helping Walker and Jenkins escape. The others are Nydeed Nashaddai, Terrance Goodman and Jeffrey Forbes. Nashaddai was the mastermind behind the scheme, according to Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey. Nashaddai used forged documents to get out of a Pinellas County jail in 2009. He was captured in less than a day, sentenced to 20 years for escape and taken to the Franklin County prison where Walker and Jenkins were serving life term. Thats where he taught them to forge court documents, Bailey said. Forbes also helped create the documents using prison computers and printers and he made a similar escape attempt, which was thwarted by a detective who discovered that his release date had been changed, Bailey said. The fake release orders were mailed to Slater, who helped deliver them to the Orange County clerk of courts ofce, Bailey said.Police: 4 charged in bogus prison release MIKEWA on h0o4 yon IN W4c199fB4fbJ9


The Sun /Friday, December 20, 2013 WIRE Page 5 WORLD NEWS NEW DELHI (AP) In New York, it looked like a straightforward case: an obscure young diplomat at the Indian consulate was accused of lying on visa forms so she could bring her maid to the U.S., paying her less than $3 an hour. The diplomat was arrested, processed through the legal system like anyone else and quickly freed on bail. In India, though, the hours that Devyani Khobragade spent in custody have set off a diplomatic storm. Government ofcials roared about her public arrest, particularly her strip search. Cabinet ministers warned of inter national conspiracies. An Indian ofcial compared the search to a gang rape. Heavy concrete security barriers were dragged by police from around the U.S. Embassy. The Indian media fumed over the countrys humiliation. Foreign Minister Salman Khurshid summed up the feelings of many people here. It is no longer about an individual, he told Parliament in an angry speech Wednesday. It is about our sense of self as a nation and our place in the world. Because what happened in New York was not just about an arrest, or about one young woman. Instead, the incident pinballed through a series of cultural land mines, causing an uproar in a country where a womans honor is supposed to be publicly defended, insults are profoundly felt and the treatment of ones maid is, for most, considered no business at all of the authorities. As for the arrest itself: Only the powerless and poor would face arrest for lying on a government form. For someone in the educated elite, a strip search would be unthinkable. Theres an expectation here that if you speak English in a certain way you will be treated with a certain deference by the authorities, said Mihir Sharma, a New Delhi writer and associate editor of the Business Standard newspaper. Its an expectation that means police rarely harass drivers of Mercedes, and wealthy Indians convicted of brutal crimes can spend years free on medical leave. Then theres history. The arrest mingled with long-harbored worries that the U.S. condescends to India, treating it as a poverty-wracked nation with poor sanitation instead of as the worlds largest democracy and a nuclear power. Also, while New Delhi and Washington have become close allies over the past decade, that followed many more years of Cold War distrust, when India had close ties to the Soviet Union, the United States had close ties to Pakistan and the U.S. Embassy here was regarded as little more than a walled CIA encampment. Among the Indian elite, and particularly among senior foreign service ofcers, its not hard to nd people who still look at the United States with deep-rooted suspicion. For (so) long these Americans have taken us for granted, and we loved to surrender every time they insulted us, interfered in our affairs and humiliated our citizens, Tarun Vijay, a Hindu nationalist and member of the upper house of Parliament, wrote in the Times of India. Our ministers are subjected to humiliating searches and we kept quiet. But what does he mean by humiliating searches? Vijay is referring to basic security checks at American airports, and his description says a great deal about the cultural gulf that can separate the U.S. and India.India outraged over diplomats treatment GENEVA (AP) A panel of U.N. investigators said Thursday it believes the Syrian government is committing a crime against humanity by making people systematically vanish, and that rebels have also recently begun making their opponents disappear. In a report based on interviews with survivors and family members of victims, the panel said the war tactic being used by President Bashar Assads government amounts to a crime against humanity because it is part of a policy of spreading terror and mental anguish among those left wondering about their loved ones. Rebel groups such as the al-Qaida-linked Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) that control large parts of northern Syria also have begun seizing people and running secret prisons, the panel said. But until recently, it said, most of the opposition has been committing war crimes, a lesser category of violations, by abducting human rights advocates, journalists, activists, humanitarian workers, religious leaders and perceived supporters of Assads government. Those are war crimes because they are not systematic, the victims tend to be taken as hostages for ransom or prisoner exchanges, and their existence isnt concealed, the panel said. Syrias main opposition group in exile, the Western-backed Syrian National Coalition, said any opposition groups illegally seizing and holding innocent civilians are violating of the basic goals of the Syrian uprising. It said in a statement that the coalition does not consider ISIL a part of the opposition: Its actions serve the regimes interests. In the case of the Syrian government, the panel chaired by Brazilian diplomat and scholar Paulo Sergio Pinheiro said it found a consistent country-wide pattern of Syrian security, armed forces and pro-government militia seizing people in mass arrests or house searches and at checkpoints and hospitals, then making them disappear and denying that they even exist. Most of the victims have been young men, and panel member Karen Koning AbuZayd said that based on consistent reports of how and where people are disappearing, the panel assumes most of them have been tortured in prison. It appears to be a policy because its so widespread. Its around the country, she told The Associated Press. We know there are thousands, but we have no idea how many are in detention. The U.N. panel pressed Syrias government to provide information and called on both sides to stop the practice, and said it could only hint at the scope of the crisis and the state of fear in which ordinary citizens live. In Damascus, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faysal Mikdad blasted the United Nations, telling Syrian state TV that the world bodys role in the crisis is disgraceful.UN finds systematic disappearances in Syria | WORLD BRIEFSEgypt rights center raided, 2 Mubaraks acquittedCAIRO (AP) Egypts military-backed authorities on Thursday stepped up their crackdown on the liberal icons of the 2011 uprising against Hosni Mubarak, with security forces storming the headquarters of a rights group and arresting six activists, including a prominent youth organizer. Hours after the early morning raid in downtown Cairo, a criminal court in the Egyptian capital acquitted Hosni Mubaraks two sons and his last prime minister of cor ruption charges in a case arising from a land sale dating back to some 20 years ago. The sons remain in detention and still face other corruption charges. Five of the six activists were released after nearly seven hours in detention. One of the ve, lawyer Mahmoud Bilal, described in a news conference how plainclothes policemen blindfolded, beat and verbally abused them after binding their hands.Israelis split over threat posed by boycott callsJERUSALEM (AP) Could Israel face a mounting global boycott of the type that ended apartheid in South Africa if it fails to reach a peace deal with the Palestinians by this spring? Some liberal Israeli commentators have been sounding such warnings, and the outgoing EU envoy to the Middle East said Thursday that support in Europe for sanctioning Israel over its settlement policies could gain steam if talks collapse. Israeli ofcials have been downplaying any potential repercussions, and this week the European Union dangled unprecedented incentives before Israelis and Palestinians to nudge them toward a deal. But Palestinian grassroots activists and their foreign supporters say an international campaign of boycott, divestment and sanctions or BDS against Israel is gaining momentum.Pakistan military: 23 militants killed in fightingISLAMABAD (AP) Pakistani soldiers killed 23 militants during clashes in the North Waziristan tribal area, military ofcials said Thursday, though residents said many civilians were among the dead. A convoy going to help soldiers wounded in a suicide attack came under re late Wednesday in the town of Mir Ali, the military ofcials said. The troops returned re, killing the militants, they said, while three security personnel were wounded.Pakistan protests may make US fly war cargo outWASHINGTON (AP) U.S. ofcials, frustrated that hundreds of military shipments heading out of Afghanistan have been stopped on the land route through Pakistan because of anti-American protests, face the possibility of ying out equipment at an additional cost of $1 billion. More than a week after Pakistani ofcials promised Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel that they would take immediate action to resolve the problem, dozens of protesters are still gathering on the busy overland route, posing a security threat to convoys carrying U.S. military equipment out of the war zone before combat ends a year from now. U.S. ofcials said Wednesday they have seen no effort by the Pakistanis to stop the protests.

Silver tumbled. The Fed will cut monthly asset purchases to $75 billion from $85 billion, partly because of an improving outlook for jobs, Chairman Ben Bernanke said Wednesday after ofcials concluded a two-day meeting. U.S. equities jumped to a record, and the dollar headed for the longest rally in almost seven weeks, eroding the appeal of gold as an alternative investment. Exchange-traded products backed by the metal lost $72.9 billion in value this year, and mining companies wrote down at least $26 billion as futures headed for the biggest annual drop since 1981.Facebook, Zuckerberg plan to sell sharesLONDON (Bloomberg) Facebook Inc. Chief Executive Ofcer Mark Zuckerberg is selling shares to help pay taxes, joining the company and board member Marc Andreessen in an offering worth about $3.9 billion. About 27 million shares will be offered by Facebook, with an additional 41.35 million shares by Zuckerberg and 1.6 million from Andreessen, the Menlo Park, Calif.-based company said in a statement today. The follow-on sale, the rst that Facebook has led for since its May 2012 IPO, could raise about $3.9 billion based on the companys closing price Thursday. The move comes a day before Facebook joins the Standard & Poors 500 Index, an event that triggers demand from index funds and other institutions to own a companys stock.Darden looking to spin off or sell Red LobsterNEW YORK (AP) Darden Restaurants wants to set Red Lobster adrift. The company said Thursday that it is looking to either spin off or sell Red Lobster as part of its plan to boost value for its shareholders. Those plans also include suspending the opening of new Olive Garden locations and limit the opening of new LongHorn Steakhouse restaurants. Darden Restaurants Inc. has also decided it wont make any acquisitions of additional brands for the foreseeable future and plans to review senior managements compensation and incentive programs so that there is more emphasis on samestore restaurant sales growth and free cash ow. Red Lobster has 705 restaurants in the U.S. and Canada and is the biggest full-service dining seafood specialty restaurant operator in North America. NEW YORK (AP) U.S. stock indexes ended up pretty much where they started on Thursday, a day after a powerful surge. Stocks gained the most in more than two months Wednesday after the Federal Reserve said it would reduce its bond-buying program to $75 billion a month from $85 billion. Investors saw the decision as a vote of condence in the economy. Its good for the economy, and its good for the market, to start standing on its own two feet, said Natalie Trunow, chief investment ofcer for stocks at Calvert Investments. Financial markets were still digesting the Feds move on Thursday. While stocks were holding close to record levels, Treasury yields climbed, the dollar rose and gold slumped to its lowest in more than three years. Major U.S. stock indexes started the day lower, moved gradually higher throughout the day and closed essentially at. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 1.05 points, or 0.06 percent, to 1,809.60. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 11.11 points, or 0.07 percent, to 16,179.08. It rose 293 points the day before. The Nasdaq composite fell 11.93 points, or 0.3 percent, to 4,058.13. Target fell $1.40, or 2.2 percent, to $62.15 after the company said that about 40 million credit and debit card accounts may have been compromised by a data breach that happened just as shoppers ooded into stores for Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. The S&P 500 is up 0.2 percent for the month after moving into the green for the rst time in December on Wednesday. If the gains hold, the index will have advanced for 10 of the 12 months this year.Stocks pause on Wall Street 0 0

On her rst ofcial overseas trip, Samantha Power nds herself in an uncomfortable position: Before becoming a diplomat, she made her name as a vocal critic of Washingtons response to past atrocities. Now, she is trying to spotlight the horror here, at the same time that she represents a government which has declined to join France in sending troops to quell the conict. Instead, the U.S. will spend $100 million to equip and train the African troops sent in to stabilize the country, including providing trucks to get them into villages in the country side where rival Christian and Muslim militias have been attacking civilians and each other. The choice of the U.S. is never between doing nothing and sending in the Marines. How do we use a host of tools at our disposable? she said, commending the French and African troops for stepping in to stop the cycle of violence so that the difcult process of reconciliation could begin. They are putting their troops on the line here on the ground and it is very much in our interest to support them as they try to bring about stabilization and democracy. The ambassador met with President Michel Djotodia, who swept to power with his mainly Muslim Seleka rebels in March and is now battling Christian militias around the country, some made up of soldiers from the former regime. All sides are accused of attacking civilians, at least 500 of which died in violence in Bangui itself over the past week. Every day we are thinking about which tools to employ in order to try to prevent atrocities in the rst instance and these cycles of violence that can very quickly take hold very quickly kerosene can be poured on a situation and a match can be lit, she said at Banguis airport with the air thick from the smoke of the cooking res from the tens of thousands of people seeking refuge from the violence in camps next to the runway. The president, who arrived for and left the meeting in an armored personnel carrier belonging to the Chadian peacekeeping contingent, has agreed to organize new elections, as early as the end of next year according to Prime Minister Nicolas Tiangay, and then he is expected to step down a promise Power said the U.S. would hold him to. Powerful people sometimes dont like to give up power, she said after her meeting with him. It is extremely important that the president, the prime minister and the head of the council have all agreed to relinquish power as soon as elections occur.Amid spasm of violence, US diplomat in Central Africa KIEV, Ukraine (AP) Ukraines embattled president slammed the West on Thursday for supporting the massive street protests calling for his ouster and announced plans to partially join a Moscow-led economic union a move likely to deepen Ukraines political crisis. Speaking in a televised interview with some hand-picked journalists, President Viktor Yanukovych criticized foreign nations for meddling in Ukraines internal affairs. Senior Western diplomats have in recent weeks attended and expressed support for the sprawling demonstrations on Kievs Independence Square, known as the Maidan. Assistant U.S. Secretary of State Victoria Nuland even gave out sandwiches to protesters there. It is very important. This is our internal matter, Yanukovych said. Some countries should not meddle in our inter nal affairs and should not believe that they can be the bosses here. I am categorically against having someone come here and teach us how to live, a visibly angered Yanukovych added. Yanukovych has faced nearly a month of angry protests since his abrupt decision to shelve a political and trade agreement with the 28-nation European Union and turn toward Russia instead. The rallies grew larger, swelling to hundreds of thousands, after riot police violently broke up the rst small protests, injuring dozens. The presidents ery comments came two days after Russia announced a major bailout loan for Ukraine, which has been facing a possible default.Ukrainian leader slams West Port Charloe Elks Lodge #215320225 Kenilworth Blvd, Port Charloe(near Veterans Blvd & Atwater)For information, call (941) 627-4313 ext. 109 or email us at Smoke-Free!Doors open at 10 Games start at 11 ree times a week, everyTuesday, ursday & FridayNo Tipping!

The Cougars goal came from about 70 yards away on a ball kicked hard into the air that got caught in strong wind and found the net. The rematch on Thursday night was a different story. Lemon Bay struggled to get anything going on offense and Cardinal Mooney scored once in each half to win 2-0. This was a game we just didnt play, Manta Rays coach Zenon Luzniak said. We didnt show up to play and they did. This Manta Rays team also looks a bit different than the one that beat the Cougars last month. Leading goal scorers Andy Kappelman and Sean Winterstein are both dealing with injuries, and Winterstein sat out of Thursdays match. Kappelman played with a big cast on his left arm around his wrist and ngers, protecting a broken hand sustained during a game two weeks ago. Its just kind of awkward to run with, Kappelman said. Its slowing me down a little bit. Last game we played this team, I was burning them. Today was slower. Luzniak has also started to work Matias Carbone, the lone freshman on the roster, into the lineup. He said hes being trying to get Carbone more varsity experience, especially against less physical teams like Cardinal Mooney. Lemon Bay now gets what Luzniak called a much needed break. The Manta Rays dont play again until Jan. 3 against Venice, giving the team two weeks to rest and get back to 100 percent.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or zmiller@ BOYS SOCCER: Cardinal Mooney 2, Lemon Bay 0SUN PHOTO BY DOUG SAHLINLemon Bay High Schools Chase Baskind tries to keep the ball away from Cardinal Mooneys Alex Turner during Thursdays match in Englewood.Cougars show up MantasLemon Bays offense fails to get going; Cardinal Mooney wins rematch By ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITER UP NEXTLemon Bay: at Venice, Jan. 3, 7 p.m. NFL: Tampa BayYouthful Rams run with army of rookiesTAMPA As NFL teams go, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a young one, with a dozen rookies on the roster, including impact players on both sides of the ball. Thats still not as young as the Rams team theyll face Sunday, one with rookies galore and a full 29 players more than half the team in their rst or second year in the league. Last year, we were the youngest team in the league, and this year we got younger, said coach Jeff Fisher, whose Rams have beaten the Colts, Bears and Saints three likely playoff teams in the past six weeks. Im excited about it because theyre talented, they love to prepare, practice and have fun. They play hard, and well be able to keep this group together for years now as they mature and develop. The Rams have rookies all over; their leading rusher with 854 yards, Zac Stacy, was a fth-round pick, and rst-rounder Tavon Austin has six touchdowns as an explosive receiver and returner. Another rst-rounder, Alec Ogletree, leads the team with 102 tackles, and three other rookies have at least 10 tackles. Were pleased, Fisher said of his rookie contingent.

That was the case for North Port High School as it came out flat in its regular season home finale. It also didnt help that their leading scorer was out sick.

Lindsey, also a senior, poured in 36 points to lead the Pirates (12-3) in their last game before the holiday break. Robertson was on crutches Thursday night with a ligament injury. Coach Kevin Purcell said it was not serious. We denitely had to step up because shes one of our main players, Lindsey said. With her hurt, we had to step up. The Panthers (11-6) gave Port Charlotte some problems in the rst half. With Robertson out of the lineup, Cypress Lake was able to do some scoring inside.

Page 2 SP The Sun /Friday, December 20, 2013 CLEVELAND John Axford had other choices where he could pitch next season. The Indians closed the deal. Axford, who had 46 saves for Milwaukee in 2011 but lost his closers job last season and was traded to St. Louis, nalized a $4.5 million, one-year contract on Thursday and will close for Cleveland in 2014. The 30-year-old Axford had other teams inter ested in signing him, but he decided to join the Indians because of their turnaround in 2013, a strong clubhouse and manager Terry Francona, who sold Axford with his typical straightforward approach. He was very, very up front with me, Axford said. Axford replaces twotime All-Star closer Chris Perez, who was released in October after Cleveland made its rst playoff appearance since 2007. Axford agreed to the contract with Cleveland earlier this week, and completed the deal after taking a physical on Wednesday. Around the league: Outfielder Carlos Beltran and the Yankees finalized a $45 million, threeyear contract, the team announced. The eight-time All-Star is to be introduced at a Yankee Stadium news conference today. ... The White Sox agreed to a $3 million, one-year contract with right-hander Ronald Belisario and are closing in on a $4 million, one-year deal with pitcher Scott Downs. The talks with Downs were revealed by a person familiar with the situation who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced. ... In yet another December trade by general manager Billy Beane, the Athletics have acquired outfielder Corey Brown from the Washington Nationals for cash. Brown has played in 36 major league games in parts of three seasons, batting .175 with two homers and four RBIs.

AWAY AT COLLEGE: James ConnaghanConnaghan shows steady improvementJames Connaghan is holding his own as an undersized wrestler in his weight class. The Lemon Bay High School graduate, whose weight uctuates between 175 and 180 pounds, has been wrestling in the 184 class for Iowa Lakes Community College. The freshman said he arrived at school weighing 205 pounds, but When you step on the mat, your weight just falls off. Hes been eating more protein and carbohy drates to close the weight advantage of opponents. Hes also lifting weights regularly to build the strength needed to last the duration of matches. Hes been improving day by day, coach Cody Alesch said. His matches have been getting better for him. Hes a big, strong kid, Alesch said. He doesnt have a lot of offense. Were trying to get him some more options. Connaghan has been adding to his arsenal of moves in order to counter the aggressiveness of opponents. Everyones offensive, he said. Now Ive got to change my game. Theres a lot of high-prole moves Im not accustomed to, said Connaghan, who has won twice by forfeit. I want to be good at certain types of moves. He is aiming to be strong at ve moves rather than mediocre at more. Alesch said its become a matter of him consistently applying moves learned during practice into matches. Connaghan has shown signs of doing as much. As his condence grows, he has been able to extend matches and limit margins of defeat. He lost by a fall at 5 minutes Nov. 2 in his rst event. He was pinned at 4 minutes by the eventual class winner of the freshman division at the Luther College Open two weeks later. He lost a 9-4 decision to Quinton Swanberg of Iowa Western Community College in a Nov. 20 dual meet. But he lost 2-1 to Swanberg at the Dec. 7 Buena Vista Open. Swanberg was ranked seventh in the 184-pound class, according to the National Junior College Athletic Association poll Dec. 4. He has the physical and fundamental foundation to compete, Alesch said. Hes got good defense, he said. He runs well. He is athletic and strong. Hes got good wrestling position. Hes a good student, Alesch said. Hes a blessing to have in the program.By BARBARA BOXLEITNERSUN CORRESPONDENTLemon Bay grad wrestles for Iowa LakesCONNAGHAN | COMMUNITY CALENDARBASEBALLCharlotte County over-53 team: Championship level players needed for all positions, college playing experience a plus.

INDIANAPOLIS Dario Franchitti hobbled into Thursdays news conference on crutches and sat down between IndyCars two most cher ished prizes the series championship trophy and the Indianapolis 500 trophy. Thats when it all hit home for Tony Kanaan, Chip Ganassis employees and Franchitti himself. He is done racing. More than a month after abruptly announcing his retirement, Franchitti nally felt well enough to spend 20 minutes answering questions about the frightening October crash that forced him to reluctantly walk away from a sport that turned the thoughtful, polite Scotsman into an international celebrity. I spent two days kind of thinking, How can I get around this? Franchitti said. Ive driven with a lot of broken body parts over the years and I thought, Theres got to be a way, and there just wasnt. It took Franchitti nearly 2 months just to make it back onto the public stage after the crash at Houston. Debris from the accident injured 13 fans in the grandstands and an IndyCar ofcial, while the four-time IndyCar champion and threetime Indianapolis 500 winner was diagnosed with a fractured spine, a broken right ankle and a concussion. Franchitti has had sur gery twice on the ankle, which is why he continues to use crutches, but the lingering effects of the concussion were a major concern for physicians and friends. As recently as three weeks ago, the 40-yearold Franchitti still wasnt himself. He was in my house and he wasnt there. You know, his body was there, but he wasnt there, said Kanaan, the 2013 Indianapolis 500 champ and one of Franchittis closest friends. When you see a friend not speaking right, you know slowly, asking the same questions 10 times and sleeping 16 hours a day, you know somethings not right. The doctors explained the risks of getting back in the car and the potential consequences. Franchitti, who had over come everything from concussions to a broken back during his incredible career, knew this time was different. I said, Tony, Im not sure how this going to work out. Im not sure if Im going to be OK, Franchitti said, explaining how he asked Kanaan to drive the No. 10 car if he could not. That day was the rst day I thought, I might be in trouble here, but you dont really have all your mental faculties when youre in that condition. Franchitti was in far better shape Thursday. After thanking fans and friends for their support and apologizing to reporters for not taking questions sooner, Franchitti teased Kanaan about showing up for the news conference in a black shirt and black slacks. He later reached down to Kanaans image on the Borg-Warner Trophy and joked he thought the nose was actually doubling as a handle for the trophy. Thats more like the fun-loving Franchitti colleagues and fans have known the years. Kanaan is convinced Franchitti will not attempt a comeback when he is healthy. I dont think hes going to do anything thats going to jeopardize his life, Kanaan said. The good news is that Franchitti will still be around the track. While he wont be jumping into the cockpit, Franchitti has agreed to continue working with Ganassis team in a still-undened role. Team manager Mike Hull believes Franchitti can help the four-car team make a smooth transition with two new drivers Kanaan, who will replace Franchitti in the No. 10 car, and Ryan Briscoe, a former Indy pole winner without losing any of the dominance Ganassis team has had over the past ve seasons. The holdover drivers are three-time series champion Scott Dixon and Charlie Kimball, an emerging American who won his rst IndyCar race last season. AUTO RACING: IndyCar SeriesAP PHOTODario Franchitti made his rst public appearance since a crash ended his IndyCar career during a press conference in Indianapolis on Thursday. The four-time series champ and three-time India napolis 500 winner will not race again because of the risks involved with another head injury.

The Sun /Friday, December 20, 2013 SP Page 3 COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Florida Florida faces Michigan in 2017 openerFlorida and Michigan will open the 2017 season in the Cowboys Classic in Arlington, Texas. The prime-time game is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 2. It will be Floridas rst regular-season, non-conference game outside the Sunshine State since the Gators lost at Syracuse in 1991. You dont get these opportunities very often, Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said. Our schedule has been pretty consistent through the years. We were presented this opportunity and just thought it was something that our fans would embrace, our program would embrace. It would give us great national visibility. Obviously, a very difcult ballgame against a storied program that excites us. Michigan will be the away team; Florida the home team. Game ofcials and replay crew will come from the Big 12 Conference. Each school will receive 25,000 tickets for the neutral-site game at AT&T Stadium, home to the NFLs Dallas Cowboys. The $1.2 billion stadium opened in 2009. It already hosted the Super Bowl and is scheduled for the 2014 NCAA mens Final Four and the rst college football national championship under the new playoff format in January 2015. Michigan played in 2012 Cowboys Classic, losing 41-14 to Alabama. We are excited to make a return trip to Dallas for the Cowboys Classic against Florida, Michigan coach Brady Hoke said. This is a great way to reach our fan base in the south and to continue to expand our recruiting efforts in the state of Texas. Our goal is to have as many Michigan fans at the game as possible. This will be the third meeting between Michigan and Florida. Both previous matchups came in bowl games. Michigan won both: a 38-30 victory in the 2003 Outback Bowl and a 41-35 victory in the 2008 Capital One Bowl.BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SOUTH BEND, Ind. Another Notre Dame rivalry game is biting the dust. Purdue announced on Thursday it has joined Pittsburgh and Michigan on the list of teams that usually play the Fighting Irish on an annual or near-annual basis but will not be any longer. Notre Dames annual game against Michigan State could be the next to fall. Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick didnt respond to a telephone message seeking comment, but he is expected to discuss future schedules today. Senior associate athletic director John Heisler said the university wouldnt comment until it is ready to release its full schedule, which should come soon. Purdue said the teams, which have played annually since 1946 and 85 times overall, will meet in Indianapolis next season as part of the Shamrock Series home games the Fighting Irish play every season away from South Bend, and then not play again until 2020. Next years night game will be played Sept. 13 at Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Indianapolis Colts. The Irish lead the series 57-26-2. The decision to end both series is the result of Notre Dame agreeing to play ve games a season against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents when it joined the conference in most other sports. Familiar foes square off in DIII: In Salem, Va., Mount Union and Wisconsin-Whitewater will play for the Divisional III national football championship again. The teams have been the last two standing in eight of the past nine seasons and will square off in the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl tonight at Salem Stadium. Mount Union (14-0) got there this year with a new coach, 37-year-old Vince Kehres. He is the son and former defensive coordinator for his father, Larry Kehres, who guided the Purple Raiders to 11 national championships in 27 years as coach. Mount Union will be appearing in the Stagg Bowl for the ninth consec utive season, while the Warhawks of Wisconsin-Whitewater (14-0) made it back after missing the playoffs entirely last season. The Warhawks had won three titles in a row before last season. Coaching moves: Central Arkansas hired longtime Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College coach Steve Campbell as the Bears new football coach. He will be introduced today at a news conference on the schools campus in Conway. Arkansas State athletic director Terry Mohajir said North Carolina offensive coordinator Blake Anderson will become the new coach of the Red Wolves. Anderson becomes the fifth coach in five seasons for the Red Wolves. North Carolina coach Larry Fedora said the team hasnt decided yet who will call plays in the Belk Bowl after the departure of Anderson. New Boise State coach Bryan Harsin has filled two key coaching vacancies on offense and defense. Former Broncos assistant Marcel Yates will return to be the defensive coordinator, and former Boise State quarterback Mike Sanford Jr. will be the offensive coordinator. Around the nation: Alabama suspended linebacker Xzavier Dickson and freshman tailback Alvin Kamara for the Sugar Bowl against No. 11 Oklahoma on Jan. 2. Saban didnt disclose a reason. Washington assistant coach Tosh Lupoi says allegations he broke NCAA rules by paying for a football recruits online classes and tutoring are untrue attacks. Baylor receiver Tevin Reese (dislo cated wrist) is getting the cast off his right wrist today, and he expects to play in the Fiesta Bowl against No. 15 UCF. He was injured on Nov. 7. Tennessee wide receiver Paul Harris, running back Tom Smith and defensive back Tino Thomas received their releases to leave the football program. Harris played in five games as a freshman this season. Smith played 10 games as a sophomore. Thomas, a redshirt freshman, played in three games.Purdue ends series with IrishBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS COLLEGE FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK SANTA CLARA, Calif. Yes, Jim Harbaugh wants to coach the San Francisco 49ers for years to come. No, he doesnt want to discuss a contract extension in a public forum. Harbaugh said absolutely he wants to stay put. The third-year NFL coach signed a $25 million, ve-year contract when he left Stanford to take over the 49ers in January 2011. As far as an extension, 49ers CEO Jed York said on KNBR radio he would like to hammer out a new deal for Harbaugh during the offseason. There has been speculation Texas might pursue Harbaugh to replace Mack Brown. Giants WR has surgery: New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee. Cruz had an arthroscopic debridement in Pensacola after getting a second opinion on the injury he sustained last weekend against Seattle. The recovery period is at least three weeks. Packers face difficult call: Aaron Rodgers looked fine on the practice field. It doesnt mean he will play Sunday against Pittsburgh. Green Bay remained quiet on whether Rodgers will be medically cleared to return from his left collarbone injury in time for Sundays game. Rodgers made several references to his playing status being an organizational decision. Injury report: Washington tight end Jordan Reed will miss the rest of the season because of effects from a concussion. Reed saw a specialist in Pittsburgh, who recommended the rookie not practice for three weeks. Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson remains on track to return to action this weekend despite being held out of practice for further treatment on his sprained right foot. Cleveland cornerback Joe Haden rode a stationary bike during practice as he recovers from a hip bruise. Haden did not practice Wednesday and he appeared to be limited during the portion of Thursdays indoor workout open to the media. Around the nation: Buffalos game against Miami will be blacked out in the Bills home market after the team failed to sell out the game for the first time this season. Buffalo came close to a blackout twice, but owner Ralph Wilson Jr. purchased the remaining tickets for both games. LeSean McCoy ran for a fran chise-best 217 yards against a stout run defense in blizzard-like conditions. Now, the NFLs leading rusher faces the leagues worst run defense on Sunday when Philadelphia (8-6) plays host to Chicago (8-6) in a matchup of division leaders.Harbaugh wants to stay with San FranciscoBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NFL NOTEBOOKPackers silent on Rodgers; Giants Cruz has surgery AP PHOTOGreen Bays Aaron Rodgers stretches before a game last month. The quarterback has worked out this week, but the team has not announced whether he will play this week. AP PHOTOPittsburgh outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley rushes against Miami tackle Bryant McKinnie, whose signing has helped stablilize an oensive line rocked by the bullying incident that ensnared two starters earlier this season.The margin for error that differentiates wins and losses in the NFL is so microscopic we seldom see it. That explains why they call football a game of inches. The 2013 Miami Dolphins are a 36-inch touchdown run by Tampa Bays Bobby Rainey, a Mario Williams sack-fumble and Dan Carpenter eld goal for Buffalo, and a fourthand-10 conversion from Carolinas Steve Smith away from having an 11-3 record right now, and being tied atop the AFC standings. These same Dolphins are also a Dion Sims touchdown catch against Atlanta, a misstep by Pittsburghs Antonio Brown, and a Michael Thomas deection, then interception against the Patriots away from being 5-9 heading into the nal two games of this season. If Brown hadnt stepped out of bounds during Lateral-gate, and if a newcomer like Thomas hadnt stepped up and handled himself admirably against the legendary Tom Brady, wed still be talking about ring everyone, and not discussing playoff possibilities. We usually dont see those inches because were too preoccupied with pointing ngers, guring out who needs to be red, hired, signed or drafted next. Coincidentally, the one person who has been in charge of those decisions for the past six seasons will not get much credit for what appears to be a long-awaited franchise turnaround. But Jeff Ireland certainly deserves it. Nobody in South Florida has been on a hotter seat than Ireland, who is the step-child left behind from the Bill Parcells era of the Dolphins. Few executes survive four consecutive losing seasons, numerous public missteps, and the selection of three quarterbacks (Chad Henne, Pat White and Ryan Tannehill) in the drafts rst two rounds. But Ireland, the man who has had two Fire Ireland banners y above Sun Life Stadium before games, appears to be the Teon Don of NFL executives. Say what you want about Irelands poor drafting (hes so-so, especially in the second and third rounds), how the team overspends on free agents (they often do), the troublesome offensive line (hes used a ton of resources on the group) but Ireland handed coach Joe Philbin a solid roster this September. It was on Philbin and his staff to make it work. Yet, when the team performs poorly it is always Irelands fault. The talent isnt good enough. Now that the Dolphins are succeeding does he get any credit?Will Jeff Ireland get props he deserves?By O MAR KELLYSUN SENTINEL NFL COMMENTARY: Miami DOLPHINS AT BILLSWHO: Miami (8-6) at Buffalo (5-9) WHEN: Sunday, 1 p.m. WHERE: Ralph Wilson Stadium, Orchard Park TV: CBS improvement on a weekly basis. Alec is really having a good rookie year, seeing things still for the rst time, but hes improving. (Austin) is making a lot of plays for us as well as (receiver) Stedman (Bailey) and (safety) T.J. (McDonald). Starting two rooks on defense in key positions of need, and were pleased with them so far. That youth movement will get another potential contributor this spring when the Rams can use the nal and most valuable pick acquired in the 2012 blockbuster that sent the Redskins the pick used on quarterback Robert Grifn III. Right now, that would be the drafts No. 2 overall pick, who will join ve other current Rams drafted with picks gained in the Grifn trade. Those players include three defensive starters second-year defensive tackle Michael Brockers (5 12 sacks), cornerback Janoris Jenkins (three interceptions for TDs last year) and Ogletree, who was taken with the 30th overall pick this year. The Bucs have had major contributions from rookies as well, from quar terback Mike Glennon (17 TD passes) and tight end Tim Wright on offense, to cornerback Johnthan Banks and defensive linemen Akeem Spence and William Gholston. Bucs coach Greg Schiano, who has 22 players with one or two years of NFL experience, likes the upside that comes with such a young group. Youre going to play your best players, whether theyre rookies or second-year guys or veterans, Schiano said. Some of it is because theyre better than any body else on the team, some of it is because of injuries. I think our young guys are doing a heck of a job. Theyre working hard trying to grasp all the information. As a coach, you try to speed that process up. Sometimes the only way theyre going to learn is to go through the re, but you try to see if you cant expose them to a little bit before they get into that re. The young Rams have gone 6-8 despite losing franchise quar terback Sam Bradford to a season-ending knee injury in the seventh game. St. Louis has as tough a division as any team this season, facing not only Seattle (12-2) and San Francisco (10-4) but Arizona (9-5) more nine-win teams than the other three NFC divisions combined.

Killorn put the Lightning up 1-0 when he beat Carter Hutton from the right circle 2:25 into the game. Defenseman Victor Hedman and JeanPhilippe Cote assisted on the goal.

Cote, recalled Wednesday from Syracuse of the AHL, got his rst career point playing in his rst NHL game since an eight-game stint with Montreal during the 2005-06 season. St. Louis made it 2-0 during a power play at 19:06 of the rst. Tampa Bay had scored with the man advantage in just four of its previous 22 games.

Kobe Bryant is expected to miss about six weeks with an injured left knee. The Lakers said Thursday that an MRI showed Bryant has a fracture of the lateral tibial plateau of his knee. The team said Bryant had hyperextended the knee in Tuesday nights game at Memphis. On Thursday afternoon, a tweet was posted on Bryants ofcial Twitter account that consisted solely of the hashtag: BrokenNotBeaten. The injury is the latest setback for the Lakers star, who had only returned to the court on Dec. 8 after nearly eight months away because of a torn Achilles tendon. Los Angeles had signed the fourth-leading scoring in NBA history to a two-year contract extension last month. Bryants new deal is reportedly worth $48.5 million and takes him into his 20th season with the Lakers. Bryant was hurt in his sixth game back when he matched his season high with 21 points. He went to the oor with 3:25 left in the third quarter of Tuesday nights 96-92 win at Memphis. James tops newest list of jersey sales: LeBron James again tops the NBAs list of top-selling jerseys. The most recent list is based on overall sales in the fourth quarter of this year, along with Black Friday and Cyber Monday holiday sales. Bryant is No. 2, followed by Derrick Rose of Chicago, Kevin Durant of Oklahoma City and Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks. Thunder 107, Bulls 95: In Oklahoma City, Kevin Durant scored 32 points and Oklahoma City won its eighth consecutive game. Russell Westbrook had 20 points and reserve Reggie Jackson added 18 to help the Thunder improve to 13-0 at Chesapeake Arena. Oklahoma City is the only NBA team with a perfect home record. Joakim Noah had 23 points and 12 rebounds for the banged-up Bulls, who have lost four straight and seven of eight. Taj Gibson scored 16 points and D.J. Augustin added 15. Around the league: San Antonio was without Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker when they played at Golden State. The Spurs said Duncan and Ginobili would be given the night off to rest, and Parker was sitting for the second consecutive game with a bruised right shin. Carlos Delfino underwent a second surgery on his injured right foot, and he isnt sure whether he will join Milwaukee on the court this season.BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS 1 T"AAAA11.I .IAA .. .

The 1988 gold medalist had always kept his personal life private, saying in a statement that being gay is just one part of who I am. But President Barack Obamas decision to include openly gay athletes in the delegation for the opening and closing cer emonies and not send high-ranking ofcials was widely seen as a message to Russia about its treatment of gays and lesbians. First and foremost I am an American athlete and I am proud to live in a country that encour ages diversity, openness and tolerance, Boitano said in his statement. As an athlete, I hope we can remain focused on the Olympic spirit which celebrates achievement in sport by peoples of all nations. Russia has come under erce criticism for passing national laws banning gay propaganda, and some suggested the United States should boycott the Sochi Olympics in protest. Obama rejected that idea, saying a stronger statement could be made by gay and lesbian athletes bringing home the gold or silver or bronze. But his choices for the U.S. delegation left little doubt about Obamas disapproval of the new Russian law. For the rst time since 2000, the U.S. will not send a president, former president, rst lady or vice president to the Olympics. This years group is led by former Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. Others include U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, deputy Secretary of State William Burns and presidential adviser Rob Nabors. Of the ve athletes in the delegation, three Boitano, King and Cahow are openly gay. Cahow said Boitanos decision to keep his sexual orientation private until now was his to make, just as it was her choice to acknowledge hers publicly. I completely respect that, Cahow told The Associated Press after learning of Boitanos statement. I think each individual has a right to dene who they are. Thats what autonomy is all about.After appointment, Boitano comes outBy NANCY ARMOURASSOCIATED PRESS OLYMPICS SOCHI OLYMPICSWHEN: Feb. 7-23 WHERE: Sochi, Russia TV: NBC family of networks | QUICK HITSJUDGE PRESERVES HERNANDEZS ASSETSNEW BEDFORD, Mass. (AP) A Massachusetts judge granted a restraining order Thursday that preserves some assets of former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez in connection with a wrongful death lawsuit led by the family of the man hes accused of killing. At a hearing in New Bedford Superior Court, the judge accepted a temporary agreement between attorneys for Hernandez and the family of Odin Lloyd that the ex-players North Attleborough, Mass., home could be used to satisfy any future judgment in the civil case. The residence is valued at $1.25 million. Charles Rankin, who is defending Hernandez in the criminal case, appeared in court on his behalf. But Rankin said he is not representing Hernandez in the civil suit. Hernandez has the right to challenge the order later. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in the June shooting death of Lloyd, a 27-year-old semi-professional football player from Boston who was dating the sister of Hernandezs girlfriend. Hernandez, 24, is being held without bail. A hearing is scheduled for Jan. 7 into whether a Pennsylvania agency should have stripped former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky of the benefits he had been getting through the states pension system. A spokeswoman for the State Employees Retirement System said plans are for Sandusky to participate in the three-day hearing through a video connection to the state prison where he is confined. Sandusky and his wife, Dottie, lost his $4,900-amonth pension last year on the day he was sentenced to 30 to 60 years. SkiingWhite gains Olympic eligibility: In Copper Mountain, Colo., Shaun White qualified for slopestyle finals at the U.S. Grand Prix, guaranteeing himself the top-30 finish he needed to be eligible for the Sochi Olympics. Less than a week after hurting his left ankle during a halfpipe contest, White tried a conservative first run, then added an extra revolution to his last jump on his second trip down the mountain. White still needs to qualify for one of the spots on the U.S. team for both the halfpipe and slopestyle. Copper Mountain is the second of five selection events. An air bag worn around the neck for improved safety while skiing is being tested on the World Cup circuit for the first time this week. Werner Heel of Italy and Jan Hudec of Canada wore the air bags in downhill training. The Italian manufacturer Dainese has been collecting information from skiers for four years. Up to six skiers will wear the air bags in downhill training sessions for the rest of this season. The air bags have not been approved for races.SoccerHamm, Fawcett, Akers head U.S. womens Best XI: Forward Mia Hamm and defender Joy Fawcett were unanimous selections for the U.S. Soccer Federations All-Time Womens National Team Best XI as part of the governing bodys 100th anniversary celebration. Midfielders Michelle Akers and Kristine Lilly were one vote shy of unanimous in balloting announced Thursday. Forwards Abby Wambach and Alex Morgan, and defender Christie Rampone were the only active players picked. Morgan, at 24, was the youngest. The rest of the team consisted of goalkeeper Briana Scurry; defenders Brandi Chastain and Carla Overbeck; and midfielders Julie Foudy and Kristine Lilly. Spain is at the top of the year-end FIFA rankings for the sixth consecutive year. The reigning world and European champions were No. 1 for the 28th consecutive month in the December rankings released Thursday. Germany was second in an unchanged top 10, followed by Argentina, Colombia, Portugal, Uruguay, Italy, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Brazil. FIFA fined the Greece Football Federation 100,000 Swiss francs ($111,500) for offensive behavior by fans at a World Cup playoff victory against Romania on Nov. 15. Seattle of the MLS and forward Kenny Cooper reached a contract agreement for the 2014 season. Terms were not released. FIFA President Sepp Blatter said a vanishing spray will be used to mark distances for free kicks at the World Cup in Brazil. The spray, which was developed in Argentina and Brazil, is currently used at the Club World Cup in Morocco. The referee uses the spray to mark the line where players can set up their defensive wall before a free kick.CyclingNational championship sites announced: USA Cycling announced the locations for several championships for 2015 and 2016, which includes taking the cross country mountain bike nationals to Bend, Ore.

Page 6 SP The Sun /Friday, December 20, 2013 crashing the boards, but Courtney had pretty much been owning that for us so I think weve been relying on her a little bit. Megan Dusenberrys shot gave Cypress a 15-14 lead early in the second quarter. But the Pirates began to hit from the outside. Three 3-pointers helped give Port Charlotte the momentum it needed to lead 32-23 at halftime. The second half was all Pirates, thanks in part to defensive pressure. Port Charlotte scored the rst six points of the third quarter, and Cypress never got closer than 10 points afterward. Cypress Lake helped out the Port Charlotte cause with turnovers and trouble at the free-throw line. The Panthers made eight of 23 foul shots. Lindsey hit four 3-pointers as part of her 36-point night. Katie Stewart had a pair of 3-pointers and nished with 15 points. For the Panthers, Joy Brownell had 14 points, Nyree Mahone 12 and Dusenberry and Emily Slone 11 each. Port Charlotte has time off before the Queen of Palms tournament begins Dec. 27. Calloway County, from Murray, Ky., will be Port Charlottes rst opponent in the Sapphire Division of the tournament at Cape Coral High School.PORT CHARLOTTE 66, CYPRESS LAKE 49PORT CHARLOTTE 14 18 14 20 66 CYPRESS LAKE 11 12 10 16 49 PORT CHARLOTTE (66): Katie Stewart 15, Treasure 5, White 3, Marshall 1, Taylor Lindsey 36, Kantzios 6.

North Port had to play without freshman standout Maddison Krstec, who was out sick, and her 20 goals. We played well and North Port played hard without their top scorer, so it was difficult for them to create a lot of scoring chances, Lakewood Ranch coach Gaetano Virgilio said. Well probably see them again in district playoffs. Lakewood Ranch (15-0-1, 11-0-1) dominated, outshooting North Port 20-5 while attacking all evening. It took five minutes for Miller to put Lakewood Ranch on top 1-0 with a beautiful header off a Lindsay Martinez corner kick. The Mustangs added to their lead on Talia Falcos soft shot in the 23rd minute that she tucked into the right corner after Bobcat goalkeeper Sabrina Murray overcommitted. Sophia Falco used her head for the Mustangs third goal off a pass from Julia Ortiz in the 58th minute, with older sister Talia closing the scoring in the closing minutes. North Port (7-7, 5-7) had only a handful of chances, none of which threatened Lakewood Ranch goalie Alexandra Latham. North Port coach Lee Thomas said his team left it on the field before the game. These senior night games are always tough. They get emotional and worked up and sometimes the result is they come out flat, Thomas said. We didnt do the things we know how to do. We didnt trap the ball or control it, and against Lakewood Ranch youre going to pay. With North Port in the middle of the pack in the district, another battle with Lakewood Ranch in the district playoffs is a distinct possibility. Thomas said he needs Krstec on the field. Shes a workhorse up front. She challenges the ball. It allows your midfielders to move up and we didnt do that well tonight, Thomas said. That was an issue across the board.BOBCATSFROM PAGE 1 PREP SCHEDULETODAY Boys basketball Lemon Bay at Venice, 7 p.m. Braden River at North Port, 7:30 p.m. DeSoto County at Lake Placid, 7:30 p.m. Mariner Holiday Classic Charlotte vs. Estero, 4 p.m, Lakeland Christian Tournament Port Charlotte vs. Cambridge Christian, TBA Girls basketball Charlotte at Seffner Christian Tourney, TBA Lemon Bay at Venice, 8:30 p.m. Girls soccer Lemon Bay at Triton Invitational (Mariner), 4 p.m. Port Charlotte at Charlotte, 7 p.m. Boys soccer Charlotte at Port Charlotte, 7 p.m. First Baptist Academy at Imagine, 5 p.m. Wrestling Immokalee (HS) Tournament, TBA (Port Charlotte, North Port) Boca Ciega (HS) Tournament, TBA (Venice) SUN PHOTO BY DOUG SAHLINLemon Bay High Schools Robert Tucker advances the ball as he is defended by Cardinal Mooneys Nick Rigas during Thursdays match in Englewood. The Cougars beat the Manta Rays 2-0 to avenge an earlier loss this season.Manta Rays endure a rough rematch with Cardinal Mooney remaining on another Marra 3, but was forced to foul on the next play. Hayley Ream sank both from the line to seal the Bobcats fate. Free throws ended up a deciding factor as Venice made three more than the visitor after the teams were equal from the floor, but that wasnt the only gaffe North Port made on an uncharacteristic night. We didnt make some layups, we got some foul trouble turnovers, dropped rebounds, just a little bit of everything, Bobcats coach Tom Tintor said. Throwing passes at peoples feet. ... We never had any kind of rhythm. We were kind of lost out there tonight. Early on, it became apparent that both teams would be feeling the after-effects of the clash the next day. Thirty-eight fouls were committed in the contest, 21 in a first half that saw three starters for each squad draw their second violations early. Thats how we play, Venice coach Jim Davis said. We are a physical team and we like to get after it, play a man defense, we stay in your face and youll see what we are. The game began at a frantic pace that continued throughout, with fast breaks, turnovers and poor shot selection on both sides as teams upped their defensive anties. North Port held a 10-5 lead in the first but a 10-2 Venice run led by Maggie Flynns nine points boosted the Indians hopes. After a Lindsey Adams jumper halted the momentum the Bobcats took four consecutive trips to the foul line, sinking 5 of 8 tries, to pull back into a 19-all tie with a minute to play in the half. Two fouls North Ports way and two made free throws for Venice gave the Indians a small edge at the break. Flynn led all scorers with 13, and Marra led the Bobcats with 11.

It was a mistake, though, because the Cougars led 7-1 with 1612 minutes left on the clock, not by an 8-0 margin that would have ended the match by mercy rule. The teams could have left the eld at that point since no goals were scored in the nal minutes, but nishing the game showed improvement by the Manta Rays. When the two teams faced each other earlier this season, Cardinal Mooney actually did win 8-0. It was an improvement over last time, so Ill take it, Lemon Bay coach Katie Cooke said. I was expecting us to do a little bit better. I thought wed gured some things out since last time we played them, but our defense fell apart a little bit in the back tonight. The lone Manta Ray goal came in the rst half when freshman Stephanie Tieu showed her speed by breaking past the Cougar defense, then looping the ball over the goalkeeper and into the net. The score cut Cardinal Mooneys lead to 2-1, and the Cougars scored once more in the rst half before breaking the game open in the second half. Cooke said Tieu is the fastest player on the team, and Lemon Bay tried to use that speed several times Thursday. The Manta Rays kept trying a play where Tieu sprinted down the eld when the ball is at mideld and teammates send a deep pass in her direction. We started that last week, Tieu said. When I make a sprint down there, I can usually beat them and either cross it in or take it in to shoot. The play didnt result in any goals against Cardinal Mooney, but Cooke said she was still very pleased with how Tieu played. She has high hopes that her young forward can continue to mature. The thing about playing forward is being in the right place at the right time, Cooke said. As a freshman, I think shes still trying to gure that out, where is the best place for her and at what time she should be making her runs. All that stuff will come in time. Tieu is one of four freshman on the Manta Rays roster. Hope Robson, Summer Rusher and Marissa Nebel are the others, and they are all starters. They all play very well, Cooke said. This is a rebuilding year for us, were really young. I think that bodes really well for us in the future. The Manta Rays will play two games today at a tournament in Cape Coral.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITER BULLDOGS GAME CANCELEDDeSoto Countys scheduled game with Winter Haven academy New Beginnings was canceled when the visitors did not show up.

The Sun Classified Page 12E/N/Cads.yoursun.netFriday, December 20, 2013 ZITSByJerryScott&JimBorgman GARFIELDByJimDavis FRESHLYSQUEEZEDByEdStein DILBERTByScottAdams REXM O R G ANByWoodyW i lsonand G rahamNolan MARYWORTHByKarenMoyandJoeGiellaDEAR DR. ROACH: I have evidently gotten acid reux from using verapamil for many years. I understand that calcium channel blockers can cause this over time. I had my blood pressure medicine changed three months ago, but this problem just doesnt go away. Since I get very nauseated taking H2 blockers and proton pump inhibitors, I am left with an extreme sore throat, and I nd it so uncomfortable to eat anything. What can y ou tell me about this horrible situation? L.H. ANSWER: A cid reux is caused by stomach acid going backward up into the esophagus, and it can damage the esophagus as well as causing pain. Many conditions predispose toward acid r eux (often called GERD gastroesophageal r eux disease), especially those that affect the lower esophageal sphincter, a structure of smooth muscle at the end of the esophagus, which acts as a valve to prevent the acid from going backward. C alcium channel blockers like verapamil relax smooth muscle, as can other medications, such as albuterol, nitroglycerine and theophylline. These medications cause the LES to weaken, and they do so immediately. In y our situation, there probably is more to it than just the medication, since it didnt start right away. GERD symptoms are very common. Although the medications y ou mention, H2 blockers (antihistamines that work on stomach acid production) and proton pump inhibitors (which directly stop acid production), can help, non-drug treatments including not eating three hours before bed, raising the head of the bed and stopping any other potential irritants, especially anti-inammatory medication, fatty foods and caffeine can be very effective. Tobacco and alcohol are triggers for most people. Many people can nd other food triggers that can be avoided. Antacids are effective for occasional symptoms, but your symptoms sound too severe for antacids to be effective (usually used only once a week or so). Chewing gum often is helpful. There are some situations in which an esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD, an upper endoscopy) s hould be done right away. People who require an EGD are those with evidence of bleeding, weight loss, recurrent vomiting, difculty swallowing or anemia. DEAR DR. ROACH: I was on Pradaxa because I have atrial brillation. I had a total knee replacement in November 2012, and within a month I had to have hematomas removed on two separate occasions. My surgeon said that the blood thinner, Pradaxa, might have been the culprit. What are your thoughts? I am going to start taking Xarelto. Could this cause the same problem in the future? ANSWER: Both of these medications reduce the bodys ability to make blood clots. The major side effect of both is excessive bleeding. Any surgery increases the likelihood of bleeding, so the combination of a major surgery, like a total knee replacement, with a medication that increases bleeding risk means that bleeding is going to be likely. However, as the body heals in the days and even months after surgery, the risk of bleeding goes down. If you were to require another surgery, the risk of bleeding would be high. On the other hand, the risk of a blood clot causing stroke in people with atrial brillation is about 5 percent per year without treatment, which is why treatment is recommended. It sometimes can be hard to balance clot/stroke risk against bleeding risk. Dr. Roach regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but will incorporate them in the column whenever possible.

I am writing to tell you about Stars for Our Tr oops. F lags are sent to Stars for O ur Troops from all over the country. The canton (blue) area is removed and washed, and then the stars are cut out and placed in a small pouch with a note to let our military know that they are not forgotten. These stars are placed in care packages going to our military who are currently serving. Stars also are given with thank-you cards to our veterans in veterans hospitals, nursing homes, etc. There are Star Parties going on throughout this great country. It is a great project for any age. Families nd it a great family time, and they learn about our country, ag and military. Susan Wells, organizer, S tars for Our Troops D ear Readers: I called S usan to nd out more about this wonderful organization. What a heartwarming effort she and volunteers all across the country do, repurposing a ag that otherwise would have no further use.

HOROSCOPE DEAR ABBY: I have been married to my wife for a year and a half, and we have an infant child. I work while my wife stays home. My problem is she doesnt like me playing sports and hanging out with friends. I have tried to make concessions and cut down playing sports to once a week. (I used to play two or three times a w eek, but thats not good enough for my wife.) On game night, when I get home she gives me the silent treatment. She used to come to my games but wont now, even though she has girlfriends who attend them. As for hanging out with my friends, I barely see them anymore and when I do, they come here. If they stay any longer than 30 minutes, it causes a problem and my wife again wont talk to me for the rest of the night. I have tried to compromise, but she feels as though any time I spend away from her and the baby is a no-no. Am I wrong to want to play sports and see my guy friends? I have tried talking to her about this, but she thinks any compromise is basically me doing what I want and her having to deal with it. ONTARIO, CANADA, READER DEAR READER: You should not become a couch potato or become isolated from your friends because you are married and a parent. And neither should your wife. She may resent the time you spend with y our friends because shes stuck at home taking care of the baby. Y ou are her only adult company, and in a way she may be jealous that yo u re enjoying freedom that she cant. Y our wife should not be doing all the parenting. One day or evening a w eek YOU should take care of the baby while SHE takes a break with her friends or family. It could do wonders for your rela tionship. If you can agree on this, it could save your marriage. If you cant, then the two of you should get counseling. Marriage isnt supposed to put people in isolation and thats what it appears your wife is trying to accomplish with you. DEAR ABBY: For the past 10 years, the holiday season has brought with it arguments between my wife and me. We both get along with our in-laws and do many things with both sides of our families. B ut for some reason, my wife makes arrangements for the holidays without discussing them with me rst. This year, she told her mom we would host Thanksgiving and that I would have to tell my family we wouldnt be coming to them. My wifes sisters are not close to their in-laws. Am I wrong to think she should have discussed the matter with me before deciding unilaterally what were doing for the holidays? Our kids need to see ALL their grandparents on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Oh our parents live only seven minutes from each other. HOLIDAY BLUES IN WISCONSIN DEAR HOLIDAY BLUES: What your wife did was inconsiderate. You ar e a couple, and she should have discussed her plan with you before issuing any invitations to see if you were in agreement. If your home is too small to accommodate both sets of in-laws at the same time, a compromise would be to alternate holidays with each set so no family feels excluded. Quench not the Spirit. 1 Thessalonians 5:19 We ought to beware of anything that would clog up our fuel faith line that would cause our spiritual motors to develop a miss. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. Let there be liberty.
