Russia, Iran, Yemen or Pakistan used drones
to take out U.S. citizens on the ground in

Item: Earthquake sent tremors through
the Florida Keys this week.
As if hurricanes, lightning and an occa-
sional tornado were not enough, a 4.3-mag-
nitude earthquake struck the north coast of
Cuba Tuesday night. Weak shaking could be
felt from KeyWest to Marathon.
Item: Obamacare to cost 2.5 million jobs.
The headline may pull in readers and let
lots of p1, iplh s. i\. "I told you so," but what
the report concludes is that with lower
cost, subsidized insurance available, more
people will quit full-time employment. The
report is talking about people trapped in a
job who may quit if they can buy subsidized
insurance at a reasonable cost. They may
quit for a variety of reasons. It may be
early retirement, poor health, or looking for
part-time work in order to spend more time
raising young children. The full-timers may
quit. Forget the headline. The jobs will not
go away.
Item: Community digs through garbage,
hunting widow's lost diamond wedding
In Bonita Springs' Citrus Park, Nancy
Gross was watching TV and eating pista-
chios in bed. She took off the diamond sap-
phire ring her late husband had designed for
her. Pistachio shells gradually covered the
ring. The next morning, she swept the shells
into the trash. From there it went to the
community Dumpster-compactor.
Park Managers Tamara and Dennis Swan
stopped the garbage hauler from moving
the load to the county dump. The Dumpster
contents were upended on a huge sheet of
Friends and neighbors joined in to hunt
for the trash bag that held the pistachio
shells. Tamara Swan found the bag and
the shells but no ring. Then, almost at the
bottom of the pile, a neighbor found it.
Nancy Gross has her wedding ring back.
Neighbors caring for neighbors is alive and
well in Bonita Springs.
Item: Mexican fisherman washes ashore

The bearded, dazed shark fisherman said
he expected to be off the Mexican coast for
the day when his motor conked out. He
wound up in the Marshall Islands last week.
A native of El Salvador, the castaway said
he survived on turtles, birds, fish and small
sharks. We still have miracle stories.

Identity crisis

Southwest Florida a hot spot for ID thieves

Authorities still were searching for
the person who criminally used a Port
Charlotte man's credit card to make
more than $200 in purchases just
hours after the victim accidentally left
his wallet at a local restaurant Jan. 30.
The crime is just one example
of many of its kind in the area. In
fact, the Punta Gorda Metropolitan

Statistical Area which includes the
unincorporated areas of Charlotte
County ranked 11th nationally in
per-capita ID theft complaints, and
was 24th in the U.S. in per-capita
fraud complaints in 2012, according to
the most current metro-area data from
the Federal Trade Commission.
"We would assume that the Punta
Gorda (MSA) is targeted due to the
percent of elderly within the pop-
ulation," said Punta Gorda Police

Department spokesman Lt. Joe King,
who added much of the scamming
and defrauding occurs online.
"The elderly are typically less com-
puter-savvy than recent generations,
and make for easier targets," he said.
"With that being said, three of the
largest retailers in the country recently
became victims to these same type of
scam artists, so everyone is a target."

A learning curve

Tom Ray readies the XL1, while Bob Hill makes final adjustments to the XL2, before heading out into the harbor Saturday, during Day Two of the
fifth annual Charlotte Harbor Regatta, which continues today. For detailed race coverage, seeSports, page 1.

Sailors soar onto harbor on experimental wings

Taylor does not know how fast his boat
will go when it sails for the first time
in the Charlotte Harbor Regatta. For
himself, Bob Hill and Tom Ray, it will
be a learning curve.
Taylor's 14-foot Laser vessel is
distinctive one of only two, named
XL1 and XL2, that will be equipped
with experimental foil wings not

Racing begins at 9:30 a.m. today. The best
onshore vantage points will be from Fishermen's
Village or Gilchrist Park in Punta Gorda; or Bayshore

launch prior to racing. For more regatta informa-

golden moment

"Ladies and gentlemen,
The Beatles! Let's bring
them on."
When Ed Sullivan uttered
those words on the evening
of Feb. 9, 1964, American
music changed forever. A

weighing just 8 pounds each. The total
weight for each two-piece sail is 18
pounds, with 80 square feet of sail. At
first, Taylor used 1/8-inch plywood two-
by-fours and pine ribs to make them.
That produced only 32 square feet of
sail that weighed in at 50 pounds.
"The carbon fiber allowed an overall
25 percent reduction in weight, with an
increase in durability and appearance,"
Taylor said.

Edison State celebrates black history

Professor Tonia East at
Edison State College
believes the Rev. Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I
Have a Dream" speech is
one of the most powerful
ever delivered.
And in honor of Black
History Month this
month, East will present
the speech to students at
the college Monday.
"This is considered one
of the top 10 speeches of
all time," she said. "I want
students to know why."

East, who teaches
speech classes at the
Charlotte campus in
Punta Gorda, typically
gives a presentation to her
class, but this year she will
break down King's classic
speech in a forum open to
all students at the college,
said Mike Beane, campus
coordinator for student
Beane expected about
15 students to attend the
presentation. Food and
drinks will be served.
He was aware that East
presented the speech to
her class every year.
"She came to me with

this idea, and we thought
it would be a good
opportunity to open it up
to every student," Beane
He pointed out that
the discussion was not
open to the general public
because of limited space
in the classroom.
King delivered the
speech to about a quar-
ter-million civil rights
demonstrators in August
1963 on the steps of the
Lincoln Memorial in
Washington, D.C. The
speech has captivated
audiences ever since its
delivery during the March

onWashington, which was
organized to call for an
end to racism in the U.S.
The speech is a good
example of the craft be-
cause it shows a "powerful
example of delivery," East
"We look at how he
(King) relates to the
audience," she added.
King also utilized
metaphor and repetition
to grab his audience, East
"Many people don't
know that there were
many parts that he
improvised and added on
the spot," she said. "The

emotion and power at the
end was truly from the
Although the speech
isn't open to the public,
two other events being
held in February are,
Beane said.
Two movies will be
shown to the general pub-
lic at 4 p.m. Feb. 19 and 26
in the Charlotte campus'
auditorium, 26300 Airport
Road, Punta Gorda.
The "Great Debaters"
will be shown Feb. 19.
The movie is based on a
true story about a debate
team from a black college
attempting to gain equal

footing with white squads
in the 1930s, a time when
Jim Crow laws were
prevalent throughout the
On tap for Feb. 26 is
"42," which is the story
of Jackie Robinson, the
first African-American
to play modern-era
Major League Baseball.
Snacks and drinks
also will be provided for
"These activities are
all geared toward Black
History Month, and
we like to do as many
events for the public as
we can," Beane said.

'On the Road' to a local writing renaissance

n Jack Kerouac's 1957
book "On the Road,"
the author com-
ments, "The one thing
that we yearn for in our
living days, that makes
us sigh and groan and
undergo sweet nauseas
of all kinds, is the re-
membrance of some lost
bliss that was probably

experienced in the womb
and can only be repro-
duced (though we hate
to admit it) in death."
And yet, there is a sweet-
ness found by many in
Charlotte that celebrates
life: the pain and joy of
writing and publishing
your own book.

Charlotte may seem like
the end of the road, due
to our population's medi-
an age, the seasonal retir-
ees and angelic weather,
a place where history
still lives. With the ease
of electronic publishing,
print on demand, and
more reasonable costs
to hard-copy publishing
as well, the people of
this county write and
publish. Most cite
their incredible lives as
material for personal and
inspiring memoirs. Also,
our retirees do anything
but sit on the front
porch. They have third
and fourth careers, they
volunteer or help make
our local Elks chapter
the second largest in the
country. Like Kerouac's
manic pace, the seniors
I know still lead interest-
ing lives, and they write
about this as well.
With this raw passion
to share their past or

present through writing,
most recognize that
there must be a process:
Whether student or
professor, the process of
writing calls for intense
self-awareness without
being too conspicuous,
a healthy ego but not
expanded, and the
desire to share through
publishing. Well, there
is much more, but that's
another class. Learning
to write well never
ends; it is a long and
winding road of revision
and many doubts, few
triumphs. The next step,
publishing, is even more
time-consuming, and

many place their trea-
sured writing in a drawer
for posterity. Yet clearly
the trend is turning.
For many, self-publish-
ing is a viable, affordable
and now, acceptable, way
to share. There are also
local presses dedicated
to publishing quality
work by local writers.
The Peace River Press,
a branch of the PRCW
at Edison State College,
is a young nonprofit
press with two books
of poetry published.
In 2012, Carol Mahler's
"How Do I Follow" was
published and is in
the third printing. Our
second and newest book,
"Florida Cracker Tales
- Prose and Poetry by a
Florida Native" is pop-
ular around town, and
its author, Carl Parrott,
understandably is proud
of his first published
book. Carl will be 83
next week, and has been

writing since he was 12.
Mr. Parrott will read at
6:30 p.m. Wednesday at
the Edison State audito-
rium in Punta Gorda.
There is a renaissance
in publishing here, but
it is only beginning.
With the help of our area
institutions of higher
learning, writing orga-
nizations and human-
ities-based nonprofits,
Charlotte is rich in what
matters. Where one road
ends, another begins,
some other author must
have said; and where
there is life, there is
examination, and some-
times a book or two.

husband's Ministerial career was as his eyes and
ears on the congregation. Priscilla did most of the
counseling, while he did the preaching. She was
the perfect Minister's wife! She was a member of
the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Charlotte
County, Fla.; the Rounders at Maple Leaf Golf and

Simpler dredging solution sought

- Charlotte County
boaters soon will be able
to give their input on
a Florida Department
of Environmental
Protection regional
management plan of
waterways throughout
the county.
The technical work is
completed on a "sci-
ence-based" regional
waterway management
plan that will allow
counties within the West
Coast Navigation District
- Manatee, Sarasota,
Charlotte and Lee coun-
ties to pull "general
permits" for dredging.
The general permit will
allow Charlotte and the
other counties to dredge
canals when needed
without having to pull
individual permits each
time the county wants to
dredge a canal system or
other waterway channels
within the plan.

FDEP officials will
hold public input
meetings at 1 p.m. and
6 p.m. March 5 at the
Charlotte Harbor Event
and Conference Center
in Punta Gorda.
"This project has been
completed in Manatee,
Sarasota and Lee
counties," Betty Staugler
told a joint meeting
Wednesday of Charlotte
County's Marine
Advisory, and Beaches
and Shores advisory
committees, and the
Parks and Recreation
Advisory Board. Staugler
is the Florida Sea Grant
marine agent with the
University of Florida
extension office in Port
Charlotte, and has been
working with FDEP
officials on the plan.
"It's a project that the
(FDEP) which will be
providing the permits
- likes because it is a
much larger regional
snapshot of what we
envision for the county
or region, rather than a

piecemeal approach,"
Staugler said. "It also
sets an expectation
of navigation into the
"(FDEP) wants public
buy-in on this project
as it moves forward,"
she said. "We want
public input because we
can tweak the (general
permit plan)."
The study for the plan
included literally in-
specting each and every
canal system in the plan,
Staugler said, and in-
cluded determining the
drafts of boats in a canal
system, especially those
restricted by tides, and
comparing the drafts of
those boats against the
depths of canals.
According to her pre-
sentation, 355 miles of
canals and other chan-
nels in Charlotte County
were incorporated into
the plan.
"What are the ad-
vantages of a general
permit that's science
based?" Staugler said,

answering her own
question. "It provides
greater regulatory
certainty, streamlined
(permitting) process,
lower preconstruction
costs and defined public
A key to those wa-
terways included in
the plan was whether

they provide a "public
benefit," Staugler said.
Dredged depths will
be predetermined and
what impacts dredging
could have on environ-
mental resources, such
as sea grasses, and what
mitigation strategies
should be taken if

"Charlotte County
had a 'jump-start,'
compared to the other
counties because it has
a comprehensive canal
maintenance program
and general permits for
a lot of its waterways,"
she said.

where the pleats/apex are

In conjunction with the West Coast Inland Navigation District, the Florida Sea Grant program, part of the
University of Florida extension office in Port Charlotte, conducted a planning study for the future recreational
boating needs in Charlotte County. Results of that study concluded:
Approximately 28,125 boats will be registered in Charlotte County by 2050, a 38 percent increase over the
20,355 boats registered in the county in 2010.
County residents comprise 53 percent of the public boat ramp users and 51 percent of the marina patrons
in Charlotte.
The majority of recreational vessels in Charlotte, now 33.5 percent and into the future, 44.1 percent in
2050, are between 16 feet to 26 feet.
If marina capacity in Charlotte remains consistent, the county will need an additional 870 slips by 2030
and 1,118 slips by 2050.
Charlotte's supply of saltwater accessible lots is sufficient to meet private dock demands well beyond 2050.
Inequities in the demand for boat ramp access versus the supply of ramp lanes are noted in the county
with the largest gap in the supply and demand found in the Gasparilla Sound and Stump Pass area.
Lower Charlotte Harbor is the destination for an overwhelming majority of boaters and 80 percent of
resident boaters who live in central and east Charlotte County.
Potential mooring field sites in Charlotte include six in the lower Peace River, three in upper Lemon Bay
and one near Stump Pass and Gasparilla Sound.

Eastside Baptist celebrates yesterday, today

GORDA-As Eastside
Baptist Church in Punta
Gorda celebrates its 50th
anniversary in February,
it's fortunate to have
members who were there
at the beginning, as well
as those who know only
what the church means
to them today.
Eastside located at
6220 Golf Course Blvd.
(off U.S. 17/Duncan
Road), on the east side
of town, as its name
implies began as a
mission sponsored by
First Baptist Church of
Nocatee, whose pastor
presided over one
Sunday service at the
mission. Attendees met
at the community center
in Tee and Green Estates.
"Several of us had
small children then,
and the pastor's wife got
playpens for us to use
during services," charter
member Shirley Swindle
A 5-acre tract of land
was donated by Tee
and Green a Jewish
Corporation of Miami
Beach. The church was
still a mission when the
Tee and Green chapel
building was dedicated
in 1963, but became the
Tee and Green Baptist
Church in 1964. In 1977,
members changed the
name to Eastside Baptist
Church, to indicate their
desire to broaden their
geographical scope. In
1978, they added on an
education wing, L.T.
Fagan Hall, named after

the former pastor who
was instrumental in
establishing it.
"But buildings don't
make a church," said the
Rev. Mike Mowry, current
pastor. "It's the people
who make the church."
The people of Eastside
Baptist Church have
made youth programs
an integral part of
the church from the
beginning. Swindle
taught Sunday school
through the years, as did
longtime member Carl
Powell, who serves as
Sunday school super-
intendent. Cliff Watt
heads the church's youth
"We have Good News
Clubs at Sallie Jones and
East elementary schools
- after-school Bible
clubs that kids can join,"
Watt said. "We're part-
nering with five or six
other churches to bring
WinShape summer camp
back again this year."
WinShape is a Chick-
fil-A program that
includes games, science,
cooking and more, Watt
said. It will run June 30
through July 4.
Awana is a Wednesday
night children's program
universal to Baptist
churches. Deborah Fadell
serves as its commander
at Eastside.
"It's a fun way to learn
Bible verses and different
aspects of the Bible,
through lessons and
play," Fadell said. "It's
a different theme every
week how to get along
with others, winning and
losing, fairness and
each time they complete

Kids of all ages participated in Eastside Baptist Church's fall
festival. The church, located at 6220 Golf Course Blvd., east of

a section, they get a
badge or jewel."
An emphasis on Bible
teaching is one thing that
has kept Powell at the
church. Along with that
is the closeness he feels
to the other members.
"It's like going to a
meeting with broth-
ers and sisters every
Sunday," he said.
Swindle enjoys the
neighborhood feel of the
church too.
"But we're always

looking for new mem-
bers," she said.
The church also has an
active women's group, a
large church library, and
community ministries.
Eastside Baptist will
have a celebration
picnic after the 11 a.m.
service Feb. 16, for
church members and
anyone who has been

the community center
in Harbour Heights,
then on to a storefront
on U.S. 41 where Budget
Rental is right now, by
the bridge to Punta

"After that we found
a bigger place in the
Whidden Industrial Park
in Charlotte Harbor.

Life Port Church's cur-
rent pastor is the Rev.
Osborn Ramkissoon, re-
ferred to as "Pastor Oz"
by the congregation.
Ramkissoon moved with
his family from Trinidad
to the U.S. in 1968, and
began his ministry as
a youth pastor in the
1980s. In 1986, he rose
to the rank of pastor of
West Kendall Church of
God in Miami, where he
served for 20 years. He
later relocated to Lehigh
Acres, where he served
as pastor for three and
a half more years. While

there, he was appointed
regional bishop of
Southwest Florida,
and came to Life Port
Church four years ago.
Originally Palm
Tabernacle Ministries,
church officials changed
the name in 2010
"because we are at a
location between two
ports, Port Charlotte
and North Port,"
Ramkissoon said at the
"The Church of God
is the oldest Pentecostal
church in the world,"
Ramkissoon said this
week. "We've got 400
churches in Florida."
Ramkissoon added
Life Port is heavily
involved in local

community- outreach
"We work with Habitat
for Humanity and with
H.E.L.P. in Charlotte
County, whose board of
directors meets at our
church every month,"
he said. "What they do
is provide food for the
community in the form
of food drives and things
like that. With Habitat
for Humanity, we help
them build homes."
"We do a lot of out-
reach into the commu-
nity," Niswander added.
"We have a food pantry
and a Nana's Corner,
which caters to families
with young children."
In addition to his
efforts to take "a church
that was dying and
bring it back to life," as
he said, Ramkissoon
also seeks to further the
Church of God's goal
to support its missions
around the world.
"I'm on the board of
People for Care and
Learning," he said.
"We are in partnership
with the people of
Cambodia, and we
are actually building a
whole city there. We're
taking 1,500 out of the
garbage dump and we're
giving them homes."

Talks needed

to resolve water

plant impasse

OUR POSITION: County, water
authority need to talk, not fight.
here's a way to resolve
the impasse between
Charlotte County and the
Peace River Manasota Regional
Water Supply Authority over
a $12.8 million repair/recon-
struction project involving the
authority's 1990s-era water
plant. As with most conflict
resolution, it starts with the two
sides talking.
That's not happening right
now. Since the authority board
voted 3-1 in December to divide
the costs between its four
members, Charlotte County has
retained lawyers to challenge the
decision, which requires it to pay
79 percent of the cost. To date,
the county has not filed any pa-
perwork to begin the mediation
process. Meanwhile, the contract
has been awarded and design
work has begun.
We have supported Charlotte
County's contention that it's
share is too high. We're less cer-
tain its reading of wording of a
contract with the water authority
- the key words are "repair" vs.
"reconstruction" will convince
a mediator to reduce its share.
On Tuesday, water authority
Executive Director Pat Lehman
told the Sun he believes there
are ways to address the county's
concerns and suggested a meet-
ing between Charlotte County
Commission Chairman Ken
Doherty, soon-to-be authority
Chairman Elton Langford and
authority staff aimed at laying
out potential solutions. He hint-
ed that the Southwest Florida
Water Management District may
be a potential source of funding
for the project.
"I think there are some op-
portunities for resolution here,"
Lehman said.
After deducting funding the
authority has on hand for the
project, Charlotte County's
share of the project cost will
be $8.5 million. If the county
passed that cost to Charlotte
County Utility ratepayers, that
amounts to 40 cents a month. If
the county's share were reduced
to $6.5 million via a contribution
from Swiftmud, the monthly cost
would be about 30 cents.
The thing to keep in mind
here is that nobody is disputing
that the 1991 water plant -
which the county purchased
through its acquisition of
General Development Utilities
and subsequently passed on
to the authority needs to
be replaced. The county also
isn't challenging the authority's
position that it is responsible for
a share of the project. At the root
of the problem is past policy de-
cisions by the authority's board
members, who opted not to set
aside funding for the foreseeable
replacement of the old plant.
We can understand why past
policy makers would want to
put off allocating money for a
project years or even decades off
in the future. But eventually, the
piper has to be paid. That bill is
now due.
The problem with getting
bogged down in the plant
replacement dispute is that
it pushes back a decision on
adopting a common rate for all
authority members and custom-
ers. The numbers involved in
that debate dwarf the plant re-
placement figures. For example,
a one-time authority payment
to compensate Charlotte County
for the increase that would result
from adopting a common rate
could be $30 million or more.
The absence of a common
rate and the failure of authority
members to set aside funding
for the plant replacement are
what brought us to this impasse.
Digging in their heels over
10 cents a month won't bring

Charlotte County or the author-
ity closer to establishing a more
equitable policy going forward.
It's time to talk.



School statistics
tell another story

Regarding "Teachers, schools
doing great job." Mr. Dryburgh's
response to the letter writer
of "Schools, county have
failed us" was unnecessarily
condescending. We don't need
to understand how the school
system works. There are dozens
if not hundreds of handsomely
compensated administrators in
place who have that responsi-
bility. We are only interested in
results. The results since 2010
are not good and they don't
show signs of improving.
Fact: Charlotte County high
schools received a grade of 14.4
with 100 being the maximum
readiness index value on an
assessment of college readiness
based on a report by U.S. News
and World Report, which was
not subjective as it was based
on actual AP test results.
Fact: Our high schools are
ranked 181,230 and 295 in
the state of Florida out of 400
Fact: Barely 50 percent of all
students in Charlotte County
are proficient in reading.
I know many fantastic teach-
ers here, but I also know that
we have lost many of the best
and brightest teachers over the
last three years. I know of sever-
al ineffective teachers and can
only speculate as to why they
are retained year after year.
I understand our role and
responsibilities as parents and
that too many unfortunately
do not. Bottom line, however,
the statistics don't support your

Federal laws not
enforced equally

We have protections on free
speech in the constitution and
we have IRS laws defining what
is permissible under the differ-
ent organizational categories
501(c)(3), 501(c)(4), etc.
Because more people and
groups are banding together
to speak out about problems
within our country, the ad-
ministration, through the long
arm of the IRS, and with no
legal standing to do so, began
thwarting applicants by slowing
their requests to a snail's pace
or even putting them on hold.

As this issue came to light
and a few groups with the
resources to wage a fight began
pushing back, the president
first denied the allegations
and then denied knowledge of
them and finally ordered an
But, that isn't the end of
the story. Unable to pursue
an agenda of stifling dissent
because of protection in the
law, the president is now asking
the IRS to change the rules,
but to exempt the United
States Chamber of Commerce
and labor unions. What is
good for the goose is good for
the gander. Laws should be
enforced equally and fairly to
have any reasonable respect by
the people.

Charlotte fair
a great experience

Our family, with four gener-
ations, went to the Charlotte
County Fair to celebrate the
birthdays of three children and
one adult. This was the most
fun-filled, happy birthday party
ever. Every person in our group
of eight found activities that
suited them, from the incred-
ible art display from students
K- 12, to the very humane,
some funny, animal shows,
unlimited rides for one price,
and of course, the fabulous
food booths.
The walkways were spa-
cious, and the entire area was
extremely clean. If you can go
before the shortly upcoming
close, I promise, you will be
glad you did not miss it. We will
be back next year, with a larger
group, I have been informed.
Hint, the water, sodas and food
are lower priced at the begin-
ning than at the end.

Judges not fair
in county ruling
Letter on Feb. 3 by Richard
Van Acker was right on. The
judges are supposed to be
fair. The first case, which cost
the county taxpayers over
$13 million, the judge who
handed down the verdict
against the county has made
it impossible for the county
to ask for a review by a
higher court. I have had some
thoughts about the possibility
that the claimant, who was
said to be a relative of Connie
Mack, maybe had an advan-
tage. I state, only a thought,
not a claim.
The second case, to be
appealed, could be very costly
to the taxpayers to a much
higher cost. I ask myself,
where has common sense
gone? Fairness, responsibility
or lack of it, all in the hands of
one person, thank our forefa-
thers for the Constitution. If
the country had to rely on the
decisions of courts to act on
our behalf without the benefit
of the Constitution to restrict
the boundaries, I would hate
to think of the mass confusion
that they would rain down on
the people. To my thinking,
this is a perfect example
of why we need to have an
appeal process. May straight
heads prevail.
As to his criticism concern-
ing our county attorney, Ms.
Knowlton is an asset to the
county. I have attended many
commissioners' meetings and
she has done an excellent job
of protecting the commission-
ers from procedural errors,
as well as guiding them on all
matters concerning general

Don't be afraid
of Obamacare
The title of the Feb. 5
article "Health law to erode
jobs," gives opponents of the
Affordable Care Act plenty of
fodder. Yet, the CBO reports
that the law simply gives
people choices where they
work, what they do and for
whom they work no longer
tethered to an employer for
health insurance. Some with a
pre-existing condition can now
leave the workforce because
they can afford health care.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers' re-
sponse to the president's State
of the Union spoke of Bette
faced with a $700-a-month
premium hike after her policy
was canceled. The truth came
out revealing that Bette com-
pared her previous policy with
a high-priced one not from the
insurance exchange but from
her insurance company. Her
catastrophic plan had a $10,000
deductible. Let's say that Bette
lived in Punta Gorda, was
55 years old with an income of
$50,000/year. She could buy a
Gold Plan for $530/month with
a $1,300 deductible. If she were
27 years old with a salary of
$15,000/year, she'd be eligible
for a $175.28 tax subsidy, could
enroll in a Bronze plan with a
premium of $175.28 with no
monthly premium due to the
subsidy! A $500 deductible
Silver plan would cost her
$11.54/month. With hospital
stays averaging $11,600/night,
this is a good deal!

en. Marco Rubio was
a day late and $8 bil-
lion short.
As part of his political
comeback since his lenient
position on immigration
antagonized the conser-
vative base, the Florida
Republican introduced
the "Obamacare Taxpayer
Bailout Prevention Act."
The idea, a back-door
way to repeal the health
care law, was to get rid of
the "risk corridors" and
reinsurance that protect
health insurers from big
losses. The idea caught on:
House Republican leaders
floated the possibility of
linking it to this months
debt-limit talks (which
means they would again
threaten a U.S. debt
default if Obamacare
isn't dismantled), and
the House Oversight and
Government Reform
Committee made Rubio
the featured witness at
a hearing on the matter
But the day before
Rubio's star turn, the
Congressional Budget
Office reported that the
"bailout" actually would

be a bonanza for the gov-
ernment. In a report that
was otherwise unhelpful
to the health care law, it
said risk corridors would
bring the Treasury net
proceeds of $8 billion over
the three years they are in
Meanwhile, health in-
surers warned that Rubio's
legislation would lead
to the government-run
health care system that
most alarms conserva-
tives. And there was the
awkward fact that the risk
corridors were the same
mechanism Republicans
used in the 2006 prescrip-
tion-drug legislation.
Committee Chairman
Darrell Issa, R-Calif., had a
solution to such problems:
He would not have Rubio
face questions. There had

been a plan for Rubio
to field questions from
Issa and his Democratic
counterpart, Rep. Elijah
Cummings of Maryland,
but Issa announced that
Rubio would leave after
making his statement,
saying, "It is not customary
to interview members of
the House or the Senate."
Particularly when
their testimony has been
overtaken by events.
Cummings had planned
to ask Rubio about his
claim on CBS' "Face the
Nation" last month that
he opposed expanding
Medicaid coverage
to 850,000 Floridians
under Obamacare because
the state would "get
stuck with the unfunded
Unfunded? In fact,
the federal government
pays 100 percent of the
Medicaid expansion cost
in the first three years, and
90 percent after that.
Rubio's fact-free ap-
proach to Obamacare is
puzzling because plenty
of damning things can
be said about the health
care law that are accurate:

It does little to curb
entitlements, it disrupts
insurance plans for mil-
lions, it leaves 31 million
Americans without
coverage and, as the CBO
forecast, it would take the
equivalent of 2.3 million
full-time workers out of
the workforce.
Yet the law's oppo-
nents seem to have an
uncontrollable urge to
make stuff up. Issa, a
frequent offender, began
Wednesday's hearings by
claiming, falsely, that the
CBO had said 2.5 million
jobs would be lost.
I went from Issa's hearing
in the Rayburn building
to aWays and Means
subcommittee hearing in
the Longworth building.
The topic was different
- this one was about the
IRS targeting conservative
groups -but the no-fact
zone was still in force.
There is ample evidence
of mismanagement at the
IRS that led conservative
groups' tax-exempt
applications to be delayed.
It's disturbing that the
overwhelming number
of groups targeted were

conservatives, and emails
from some IRS workers
indicate an inappropriate
concern about public
But Charles Boustany,
R-La., the subcommittee
chairman, went well
beyond that, disputing
President Obama's claim
that no corruption has
been found at the IRS.
"Now this committee has
actually investigated the
matter to a significant
degree and found other-
wise," he said.
That's a serious charge:
A House subcommittee
chairman is alleging
criminal conduct.
I checked withWays and
Means staff members and
was told that Boustany did
not intend to make such
an allegation.
It wasn't just him. Dave
Camp, R-Mich., chairman
of the full committee,
disputed Obama's claim
that the targeting occurred
because workers thought
the guidelines were
"confusing." Said Camp:
"Nowhere in our investiga-
tion have we found that to
be the case."

Nowhere? How about
in the May 3 email
from Treasury's deputy
inspector general for
investigations? He said he
had examined 5,500 emails
related to the targeting and
"there was no indication
that pulling these selected
applications was politically
motivated. The email
traffic indicated there
were unclear processing
directions and the group
wanted to make sure they
had guidance on process-
ing the applications so
they pulled them."
When Michigan's
Sandy Levin. the ranking
Democrat on the panel,
complained that no ev-
idence of corruption or po-
litical influence has been
found, Boustany replied,
"I want to emphasize that
this committee's investiga-
tion is not complete."
Perhaps he should have
kept that in mind before
accusing the administra-
tion of a crime.

The Democratic party of less work

he Democrats
once styled them-
selves the party of
workers. Now, they are
the party of people who
would have been work-
ers, if it hadn't been for
The Congressional
Budget Office released
a new analysis of the
economic effects of the
health care law that esti-
mates that it will reduce
the number of workers,
in effect, by 2.5 million in
This unleashed a torrent
of arguments from the
Democrats implicitly
denigrating the value of
work. Perhaps not since
Southern "fire-eaters"
attacked Northern "wage
slavery" in the mid-19th
century has a good honest
day's work been talked
about so dismissively.
The old jobs crisis was
people not having jobs;
the new jobs crisis is

people having to work
The party devoted to
combating inequality is
now blithely unconcerned
about a law discouraging
people especially peo-
ple down the income scale
- from earning more. So
much for its championing
of economic mobility.
White House press sec-
retary Jay Carney declared
the CBO report a valida-
tion of the law: "We noted
that as part of this new day
in health care, Americans
would no longer be
trapped in a job just to
provide coverage for their
families and would have

the opportunity to pursue
their dreams. This CBO
report bears that out."
If only the number of
people effectively dissuad-
ed from working were
5 million, or 7.5 million,
the health care law would
be an even more stunning
triumph of sound public
policy and true American
A few caveats are in
order: We aren't talking
about jobs that are
eliminated in the usual
sense of discouraging
employers from hiring, as
some Republican talking
points suggested. And
the 2.5 million number
isn't for jobs per se, but
for "full-time equivalent"
positions, i.e., the cumula-
tive lost hours of millions
of people deciding to work
Nonetheless, the
number is devastating.
Democrats like Jay Carney
want to pass it all off as

ending the "job lock"
that keeps people in a
job only to preserve their
health insurance. There
is a little something to
this, but it isn't the main
problem. Obamacare has
created a vast apparatus
of subsidies, penalties and
taxes that is effectively
The CBO explains that
Obamacare's subsidies,
by giving people more
resources, allow "some
people to maintain the
same standard of living
while working less." And
the way they phase out
creates another disincen-
tive, as "subsidies decline
with rising income (and
increase as income falls),
thus making work less
attractive." The penalties
and taxes, meanwhile,
"will ultimately induce
some workers to supply
less labor."
Democrats consider
all this and pronounce

themselves well-pleased.
Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis.,
sees only upside in people
working less: "What that
means is instead they
might be able to tuck their
child in bed at night and
read a bedtime story, or
go to an activity, which
means they're better off."
Harry Reid found his
inner libertarian: "We
live in a country where
we should be free agents.
People can do what they
want." Obviously, if you
are afraid to earn more
because government will
take away a subsidy, you
aren't a free agent.
White House economic
adviser Jason Furman
made an inapt compari-
son. "Getting rid of Social
Security and Medicare
would cause more
95-year-olds to work," he
said. "You wouldn't judge
whether Social Security or
Medicare are good or bad
based on what they do to

labor supply."
No, you wouldn't
- because they are
programs for the elderly.
Discouraging work among
95-year-olds is different
from discouraging work
among people in the
prime of their lives. No
one told us when the bill
was being considered that
Obamacare would have
some of the same effects
as a retirement program.
The latest CBO numbers
are part of the growing list
of facts about Obamacare
that, if they had been
widely acknowledged
before its passage, would
have doomed it in
Congress. But that debate
seems so long ago. It was
back when both political
parties professed to be

Delusions of failure: State of the Union response

he Republican
response to the
State of the Union
address was delivered
by Rep. Cathy McMorris
Rodgers, R-Wash. and
it was remarkable for its
lack of content. A bit of
uplifting personal biogra-
phy, a check list of good
things her party wants
to happen with no hint
of how it plans to make
them happen.
The closest she came
to substance was when
she described a constit-
uent, "Bette in Spokane,"

who supposedly faced
a $700-a-month premi-
um hike after her health
insurance policy was
canceled. "This law is
not working," intoned
McMorris Rodgers. And

right there we see a
perfect illustration of just
how Republicans are try-
ing to deceive voters -
and are, in the process,
deceiving themselves.
I'll get back to "Bette
in Spokane" in a minute,
but first, is Obamacare
"not working"?
Everyone knows about
the disastrous rollout,
but that was months
ago. Since then, health
reform has been steadily
making up lost ground.
At this point enrollments
in the health exchanges

are only about 1 million
below Congressional
Budget Office projec-
tions, and rising faster
than projected. So a best
guess is that by the time
2014 enrollment closes
on March 31, there will
be more than 6 million
Americans signed up
through the exchanges,
versus 7 million project-
ed. Sign-ups might even
meet the projection.
But isn't Obamacare
in a "death spiral," in
which only the old and
sick are signing up, so

that premiums will soon
soar? Not according to
the people who should
know the insurance
companies. True, one
company, Humana, says
the risk pool is worse
than it expected. But oth-
ers, including WellPoint
and Aetna, are optimistic
(which isn't a contra-
diction: different com-
panies could be having
different experiences).
And the Kaiser Family
Foundation, which has
run the numbers, finds
that even a bad risk pool

would have only a minor
effect on premiums.
Now, some, perhaps
many, of those signing
up on the exchanges
aren't newly insured;
they're replacing their
existing policies, either
voluntarily or because
those policies didn't meet
the law's standards. But
those standards are there
for a reason the same
reason health insurance
is now mandatory.
Health reform won't work

The stakes of a special election

Because it is
this year's first fed-
eral election, atten-
tion must be paid to the
March 11 voting to fill the
congressional seat vacated
by the death in October of
Florida Republican C.W
"Bill" Young, who served
in Congress 43 years. If
Democrat Alex Sink wins,
the significance will be
minimal because she en-
joys multiple advantages.
Hence if Republican Da-
vid Jolly prevails, Repub-
licans will construe this
as evidence that Barack
Obama has become an
anvil in the saddle of every
Democratic candidate.
Matters are, however,
murky. Tip O'Neill's axiom
that "all politics is local" has
been rendered anachronis-
tic by the national govern-
ment that liberals such as
O'Neill created. Today's
administrative state touch-
es everyone everywhere, so
all politics is partly national.
Politics in Florida's 13th
Congressional District to-
day concerns the National
Flood Insurance Program

Obama carried this
Gulf Coast district, a
one-county constituency
near Tampa, by 8.2 points
in 2008 and 5.6 in 2012.
Although Sink never lived
in the district until very
recently, she has almost
100 percent name recog-
nition here because she
has run statewide, almost
winning the governorship
in 2010 when she carried
the county by 5.7 points.
Between 2007 and 2011,
she was Florida's chief
financial officer.
After Young died,
the national and state
Democratic parties moved
with more dispatch than
seemliness. With a robust
disregard for traditional
niceties, they moved Sink
into the 13th District.

Her real home in another
county is, Jolly says he
exaggerates closer to
DisneyWorld than to this
district's beaches. They
also prevented a primary
challenge from anyone
who really lives here,
thereby allowing Jolly to
say national Democrats
decided no local
Democrat was qualified to
represent the locals.
While she rented an
apartment and began
raising money, Jolly
fought a nine-week
primary race, from which
he emerged on Jan. 14
financially depleted. He
worked for Young for
many years, which helps
his resume, but then
became aWashington
lobbyist, which does not.
He thinks it should, saying
mordantly that politics "is
the one industry in which
experience and qualifica-
tions count against you."
He notes that whoever
wins next month will have
to run again in November
and if he is running then,
the Republican House
leadership will want to

give him some plums
beneficial to his district
- perhaps assignment
to committees to protect
seniors and veterans.
This is a purple but not
a polarized district, with
37 percent Democrat and
36 percent Republican.
Although the district gave
the world the first Hooters
restaurant, the district
is unusually elderly,
white and disapproving
of Obamacare. It also is
smoldering about the
flood insurance program.
The NFIP is yet another
entitlement program
that is proving to be
more durable, and more
emblematic of modern
America, than Mount
Rushmore. The federal
government has long
subsidized insurance
for homeowners who
live in coastal areas or
flood plains. This enti-
tlement, covering about
5.5 million of America's
122 million housing units,
is necessary because
otherwise people would
be required to pay the
costs of the risks they

choose to run for living
where they are pleased
to live. The NFIP enables
the disproportionately
wealthy people who
own beach properties
to socialize their storm
losses while keeping
private the pleasures of
their real estate. The NFIP
is another illustration of
the entitlement state's
upward distribution of
Recent attempts to
reform the NFIP to
end subsidized rates for
1.1 million properties
and to change rates
based on improved risk
assessments threaten
to raise by thousands
of dollars the annual
insurance costs of some
property owners here.
Both Sink and Jolly are
competitively indignant.
But the U.S. Senate, an
unsleeping defender of
entitlements benefiting
the privileged (witness
the new farm bill), has
recently derailed reform.
Sink will benefit from
the national trend allowing
early voting to obliterate

Election Day. Any Floridian
who has ever requested an
absentee ballot henceforth
gets one automatically.
Seventy-seven percent of
the Republican primary
votes here were cast by
mail in the Jan. 14 primary,
and absentee ballots
will be mailed on Feb. 7.
Furthermore, early voting
at polling places begins
March 1, so many- per-
haps most votes will
be cast before Jolly has
raised much of the money
necessary to communicate
his message.
Instead of a community
deliberation culminat-
ing in a shared day of
decision, an election like
the one here is diffuse
and inferior. If Sink wins,
Republicans nationally
can shrug; if Jolly wins,
Democrats should
tremble. But no matter
who wins, the district
loses because it has lost
Election Day.

The battle lines of 2014

he conventional
wisdom is that this
fall's congressional
election will be all about
Obamacare. Republi-
cans, it's argued, will try
to expand their majority
in the House and take
the Senate with a cam-
paign focused mostly on
the failings of President
Obama's health insurance
law; Democrats will fire
back with warnings that
the GOP would simply
repeal the law and leave
consumers on their own.
But the conventional
wisdom is wrong.
Obamacare will be a
major issue this fall, but
so will the economy and
a host of other issues,
including immigration
and if Democrats have
their way pay equity
for women. Over the last
two weeks, leaders of
both parties have staked
out new ground on
which they plan to fight
in the nine months until
Election Day.
Let's take the
Republicans first. They
still hope to make the
election a referendum
on Obama, which
makes sense given the

proval ratings. But they're
going after more than just
"It wasn't Obamacare
that made it possible for
us to win in 2010," noted
DavidWinston, a GOP
pollster who has advised
House Speaker John A.
Boehner, R-Ohio. "It was
the economy."
That's why Boehner
recently revived a mantra
he uttered over and over
during the 2010 cam-
paign: "Where are the

he added, many voters

better insurance. Since the
goal of health reform was
to make Americans more
secure to reduce their
risk of being unable to
afford needed health care,
or of facing financial ruin
if they get sick the law
is doing its job.
Which brings me back
to Bette in Spokane.
Bette's tale had policy
wonks scratching their
heads; it was hard to
see, given what we know
about premiums and
how the health law works,
how anyone could face
that large a rate increase.
Sure enough, when a

also campaign against
Obamacare, of course, but
if Boehner and other GOP
leaders have their way,
they'll go beyond merely
calling for the health law's
repeal. "There needs to be
a Republican alternative,"
Winston said.
Three GOP senators
have already proposed
a conservative health
insurance plan that
resembles Obamacare in
some respects but on a
far smaller scale, covering
fewer people, offering
smaller subsidies and
providing only a partial
guarantee of coverage for
pre-existing conditions.
The reason for the shift
in strategy is easy to see.
Even though Obamacare
is widely unpopular, polls
show that a solid majority
of voters don't want to
repeal the law entirely;
they'd rather fix it instead.
Besides, Boehner and
his lieutenants are also
hoping to free the House
GOP from the image of
obstructionism it earned
last fall, when tea party
conservatives forced the
federal government to
close for 16 days in an
abortive attempt to ban

local newspaper, The
contacted Bette Grenier,
it discovered that the real
story was very different
from the image McMorris
Rodgers conveyed. First of
all, she was comparing her
previous policy with one
of the pricier alternatives
her insurance company
was offering and
she refused to look for
cheaper alternatives on
the Washington insurance
exchange, declaring,
"I wouldn't go on that
Obama website."
Even more important,
all Grenier and her

funding for the health
care plan. That episode
drove the GOP's popular-
ity to an all-time low. The
futile exercise of voting to
repeal Obamacare again
and again didn't help
"It's a different
(Republican) conference
now," Winston said. "The
shutdown taught every-
one some lessons. The
question now is, how do
we move things forward
so we can offer voters a
credible alternative?"
As for the Democrats,
they face an uphill battle
in their struggle to win
back a majority in the
House and retain their
majority in the Senate.
They can't run on the
state of the economy,
since most voters aren't
convinced that the
recovery is durable.
Indeed, when Obama
argued in his State of the
Union address that the
economy was improving,
even some of his support-
ers were unimpressed.
But Obama's speech
offered a preview of sev-
eral other themes likely
to figure in Democrats'
pitches to voters this fall:

husband had before was
a minimalist insurance
plan, with a $10,000
deductible, offering very
little financial protection.
So yes, the new law
requires that they spend
more, but they would
get far better coverage in
So was this the best
story McMorris Rodgers
could come up with? The
answer, probably, is yes,
since just about every tale
of health reform horror
the GOP has tried to
peddle has similarly fallen
apart once the details
were revealed. The truth is

an increase in the federal
minimum wage, more
federal aid to education
and a focus on women's
Democratic strategists
hope Obama's call for
an increase in the mini-
mum wage to $10.10 an
hour will be a "wedge
issue" that divides the
Republican opposition.
Polls show the proposal is
not only immensely pop-
ular among Democrats;
it's also supported by
about half of Republican
Education is another
issue on which many GOP
voters are torn. That's why
Obama spent much of the
last week campaigning
for his education initia-
tives, including a project
to provide high-speed
Internet connections to
most schools.
And Obama spent a
big chunk of his State of
the Union speech calling
for new legislation to
discourage wage discrim-
ination against women, a
proposal with few pros-
pects of passing either the
House or the Senate.
But that demand,
Democratic strategists

that the campaign against
Obamacare relies on mis-
leading stories at best, and
often on outright deceit.
Who pays the price
for this deceit? In many
cases, American families.
Although health care
enrollment is actually
going pretty well at
this point, thousands
and maybe millions of
Americans have failed
to sign up for coverage
because they believe the
false horror stories they
keep hearing.
But conservative politi-
cians aren't just deceiving
their constituents;

said, wasn't aimed at per-
suading Congress to pass
legislation; it was aimed at
reminding women, a key
part of the Democratic
electorate, that conser-
vative Republicans are
standing in their way.
"One factor we're
counting on is that,
at some point, the
Huckabees will come
out," said one Democratic
advisor. He was referring
to former Arkansas Gov.
Mike Huckabee's dismiss-
al of women who wanted
contraceptive coverage in
health care plans because
"they cannot control their
libido without the help of
the government."
That wouldn't be the
most elegant way for the
president's party to hold on
to its majority in the Senate.
"But it's happened in the
past," the strategist said,
noting the GOP candidates
who self-destructed in 2010
and 2012.
Besides, whoever said

they're also deceiving
themselves. Right now,
Republican political
strategy seems to be
to stall on every issue,
and reap the rewards
from Obamacare's
inevitable collapse. Well,
Obamacare isn't col-
lapsing it's recovering
pretty well from a terrible
start. And by the time
that reality sinks in on
the right, health reform
will be irreversible.

Jammers youth league seeks sponsors

t. Joe King of
the Punta Gorda
Police Department
recently got in touch
to let folks know the
department is seeking
sponsors for its summer
youth basketball league,
According to a release,
the "Jammers youth
basketball program
has become one of
the premier leagues in

Going it alone with flood insurance

Clifford Birdsall and his
wife went house-hunting
in town nearly 25 years ago,
they had a list of things they
wanted in a house.
Neither boaters nor golf-
ers, the couple didn't have
much need for a golf course
or waterfront. Instead, they
wanted a large yard with
beautiful shade trees and
lots of peace and quiet.
They found it in a charm-
ing Florida Cracker house
with a wide a front porch
nestled in the city's Historic
Birdsall doesn't know for
sure when the house was
built. Local historians be-
lieve it was built sometime
in the 1920s for railroad
No matter, the Birdsalls
loved the house and soon
they settled in. It would
be the couple's home
until their last days or so
Birdsall thought.
Looming changes to the
National Flood Insurance
Program, which currently
is saddled with a $24 billion
deficit, now threaten
the 90-year-old's plans.
In June, Birdsall's flood


Clifford Birdsall, 90, sits on the front porch of his Florida Cracker
home in Punta Gorda's Historic District. Birdsall is among
thousands of Florida homeowners caught in the confusing and
messy web of the Biggert-Waters Act, which raised premiums
for National Floood Insurance Program policyholders. Birdsall,
who owns his home outright, was told at one point his insur-
ance would jump to $30,000 a year.

insurance policy will be
up for renewal. Under the
Biggert-Waters Act of 2012,
his premiums stand to
triple because his low-lying
house, built prior to 1975,
sits in the middle of a
flood zone that the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency has deemed high
The World War II veteran
and former prisoner of war
now is forced to decide:
Should he keep the policy
on the house he plans to

leave to his three children
when he passes? Or should
he invest thousands in
having it raised to the
9-foot elevation required
by FEMA, and destroy the
beautiful shade trees that
drew him to the house in
the first place? Or should
he drop his insurance
At one point, Birdsall was
told his flood insurance
could be as high as $30,000
a year.
"I paid flood insurance

for 20 years. I've never
had a claim. I've never
had a reason to claim,"
Birdsall said. "My present
thinking is, I will go without
the insurance, but this is
something I will need to
discuss with my family."
Birdsall is among
thousands of Florida
homeowners facing the
same question. Like many
retirees, Birdsall has no
mortgage on his home.
For decades, he's done the
responsible thing and paid
for flood insurance. But
now, faced with steep hikes,
the choice isn't so obvious.
Birdsall is having a
flood-elevation certificate
done, which will determine
exactly what his rates will
be. But given the age of
his house and when it
was built, he's not terribly
The Biggert-Waters Flood
Insurance Reform Act that
passed in 2012 ordered an
end to subsidized premi-
ums on properties built
before 1975 (also known
as pre-FIRM houses),
and a remapping of
According to county
flood-insurance coordi-
nator Claire Jubbs, some
2,882 homeowners in

Charlotte County are at risk
of increase in the coming
years. What's more, only 40
percent of pre-FIRM home-
owners carry insurance, she
said. People like Birdsall.
"You don't need flood
insurance unless you
have a federally backed
mortgage, but what that's
doing is impacting people
who want to purchase
these properties that
want to have a mortgage,"
Jubbs said at a recent joint
meeting between the city of
Punta Gorda and Charlotte
County. "They're seeing
large flood insurance
Or, in the case of Birdsall,
his children because
once his property changes
hands, it triggers a full rate
hike. At the moment, if he
were to keep his policy, his
premiums would go up in
25 percent increments each
year until he reaches his full
rate, Jubbs said.
In one extreme example,
a Charlotte couple who
purchased their Grassy
Pointe home in October
2012 saw their annual
flood-insurance premium
jump from $5,000 to
$35,000 in one year.
"It's about as bad as you
can get," Jubbs said. "It's not

typical. But these homes
are out there."
Not surprisingly, city and
county officials are very
concerned. Officials are
urging all residents full-
time and part-time alike
- to write their federal
legislators urging them to
postpone increases until
a better system is devised.
In the meantime, Jubbs
is encouraging all owners
to get flood-insurance
certificates done to ensure
the validity of their homes'
County Commissioner
Bill Truex will join state
and local officials in

Tuesday to lobby federal
City Councilwoman
Carolyn Freeland, who
is leading the charge for
Punta Gorda, said the
premium increase would
devastate the city's real
estate market, both com-
mercial and residential.
"This whole situation
is just unacceptable," she
said. "Punta Gorda and all
of Charlotte County are
going to see (an) extreme
economic crisis if we
continue down this road."

commissioners say "knows

At a joint meeting of the
Sarasota and Charlotte
county commissions
Friday in Venice, Dr. Robert
Marbut of San Antonio,
Texas a national expert
on homelessness brought
to the area last year by
Sarasota County and the
city of Sarasota to help
come up with a plan to
combat one of the region's
growing problems -
presented highlights of
his 50-plus-page report
and how certain aspects
of his work pertain to
both counties, including
connecting agencies that
serve the homeless and the

culture of enabling.
Marbut stressed the
same thing to Charlotte
County commissioners
- most of whom were
hearing him speak for the
first time- that he did
to the Sarasota county
and city commissions last
November: If you want to
help the homeless, you
need to stop enabling the
homeless, and engage
"We need to move from
this well-intentioned
enabling to an engaging."
Marbut said. "We need
people to make donations

ing money out of their car
windows. We need people

to do food donations inside
of holistic systems or
centers or shelters, instead
of giving them sandwiches
out of the back of a truck in
a park. If you do that, you
grow homelessness."
Marbut said Englewood
leads Sarasota County
in homeless families,
followed closely by
North Port and Nokomis.
According to his report,
there are 348 homeless
families and 637 homeless
children in the Sarasota
County. Charlotte
County Commissioner
Christopher Constance
said most know the issue
is occurring right at the
Sarasota/Charlotte county
border, and everyone
has to be engaged and
on the same page when
approaching the problem.
"I was impressed with
the comprehensive,
well-thought-out, system-
atic approach, in regard to
engagement and the fact
that his program is tailored
to the environment,"
Constance said. "I really
enjoyed hearing about the
plan to interconnect agen-
cies, programs and data
sharing, because I think
that is so important. If we're
not on the same page, we're
going to have deficiencies
north or south of the line,
and it's going to be very

Charlotte County
Commission Chairman
Ken Doherty said both
counties are compassion-
ate, and there are a lot
of people and agencies
in both counties that are
trying to help.
"The real need is to co-
ordinate all of these groups
and get on the same page,
to make sure there's not a
duplication of services,"
Doherty said. "What's
really important for us to
understand especially
with the Englewood area
- is to understand what
Sarasota County is going
to be implementing, and
see what your first steps
are, so we can look at it and
piggyback (regarding) the
appropriate legislation we'd
need to do locally, to make
sure we get on the correct
Sarasota County
Commissioner Christine
Robinson said it was great
to have Charlotte engaged
on the homelessness issue.
"We're going to need to
stay engaged, and we're
going to need to keep the
lines of communication
open between the two
counties, because this
doesn't know any political
boundaries," Robinson

young girls, to catch a
glimpse of the musical
group that was rocking
America with their new
style of music.
Jan Norvelle remem-
bers that Sunday when
the Beatles played for
the first time to an
American audience.
"I went to my friend's
house and, I admit it, we
screamed at the TV," the
Punta Gorda resident
said. "I was a maniac
teenager when it came
to The Beatles. The walls
in my bedroom were
plastered with pictures
of them, especially Paul.
What girl didn't like
Norvelle said she and
her friends would play
air instruments, and
even learned the band's
movements when they
watched them that
"I hate even saying
it, but we did," she
laughed. "There were a
lot of good memories."
Phyllis and Vince
Adamaitis recall that
night as well. Although
she was young, Phyllis
can recall being ap-
palled that they had
long hair, but was
impressed with the suits
they were wearing.
"This was the first
time I saw hair that
long," she said. "By
today's standards, it was
Originally from

Chicago, Vince said he
tried to get tickets when
The Beatles were on
their U.S. tour and were
scheduled to perform at
Soldier Field.
"I think the tickets
cost something like $7,
which, by today's prices,
is cheap, but a lot of
money in those days,"
he said. "It really didn't
matter there were
none available anyway. I
played some guitar and
sang in what we called
coffeehouses back then.
I learned a few Beatles
tunes, and even now
sometimes I play a CD
and accompany them
on my guitar."
Mike Riley recalls
his 17-year-old sister
driving in her 1962 Red
Chevy 11 Nova Super
Sport when the DJ
announced on the radio
that The Beatles were
coming to America.
When she screamed
and said, "Listen, it's
The Beatles!" Riley said
he expected to hear a
group like Alvin and the
Chipmunks, but instead
"I Want To Hold Your
Hand" began to play.
"That moment rolled
all of the music that I
knew and loved into one
for me," he said. "Within
a week, my dad bought
me a $10 guitar, and I
still can't play it."
Lake Suzy resident
Anna McGeary said she
loved Paul McCartney
when she watched The
Beatles that night.
"I got to see them;
they were great," she
said. "When Elvis
Presley was on a few
years earlier, my father
wouldn't let me watch
him because of his
gyrating hips."
When The Beatles
played that September
at the Boston Garden
Arena in Boston, Mass.,
Maureen Manning
Coady received a
unique bit of Beatles
"My friend's father
was a policeman

guarding Ringo and
George's room at the
Boston Garden," she
said. "He took the roll
of toilet paper and
gave it to my girlfriend
Ann, who gave all of
us a square of it as a
souvenir. I still have that
bit of toilet paper in my
Sunday missal. Do you
think I would ever throw
George and Ringo's toilet
paper out?"
However not everyone
was excited about The
Beatles' arrival. Gary
Knight sang bass for
The Delmonicos, a
New York City doo-wop
group, and their song,
"World's Biggest Fool,"
was destined to hit the
Top 10 charts. When
the boys from Liverpool
emerged on the musical
scene, his hopes were
"We were torpe-
doed," he said. "Many
American doo-wop
groups lost their pop-
ularity. The music that
The Beatles made was
great, no doubt about it.
They were very talented.
But I still have some
bitterness. They cut my
career short. When they
said, 'The Redcoats are
coming!' we should have
Whether loved or
hated, The Beatles made
a significant impact
on not only music, but
popular culture as well.
Many of their songs
have stood the test of
time since Paul, John,
George and Ringo first
stepped foot on that
CBS-TV Studio 50 stage
half a century ago.
Many groups would
follow them to America
- including the Rolling
Stones, Gerry and the
Pacemakers, Chad and
Jeremy, and Herman's
Hermits in what
would be called the
"British Invasion." But
it was The Beatles who
spearheaded the charge
and made it all happen.

"We strongly support
(Scott's) push to increase
(FDLE) funding for
cybercrimes," King said.
"The (FDLE is) a major
partner, particularly with

that don't have special-

The PGPD has com-
bated the crimes through
holding identification

and frequently sends out

"We also ask that our
citizens monitor their

"There's a good chance
I'm going to get a little
emotional," Michaela
said. "She's the sweetest
pig I ever had."
Michaela's love of
animals is why she first
got involved in animal
husbandry just three
years ago. Her hobby,
though, quickly evolved
into a thriving business
that actually exports
some of her prized ani-
mals. She now has about
20 chickens and nearly
100 rabbits at her Punta
Gorda home, but Fried
Porkaneisa is special.

In September, the pig-
let was the only surviving
member of her litter on
a Bradenton farm after
heavy rains overflowed
a nearby river. Michaela
rescued the young hog
and they immediately hit
it off. At her first weigh-
in the following month,
Porkaneisa was just
35 pounds.
"Everybody said, 'She's
underweight. She's not
going to make it to sale,'"
remembered Michaela,
who also finds time to
run cross country and
track at Charlotte High
School. But showing
the survival instinct
that served her before,
Porkaneisa weighed a
whopping 304 pounds
when she was named
Grand Reserve Hog.

since her daughter, Katie,
started raising animals in
the 4-H Club at the age
of 8. She's now 22.
"They're taught from
the very beginning, these
are not pets, they're
projects," said Jordan, a
Punta Gorda resident.
Since that time, Katie
continued to show and

sell livestock, large and
small. She found out
that buyers would pay
more for animals that
win awards, and those
belonging to special
breeds. And she learned
her lesson well.
Katie earned more
than $10,000 for college,
and today has a degree in

it. And raising livestock

Bob Hill and Chuck Taylor assembled the wing sails onto the
14-foot Laser boat prior to launching it Saturday.

"Around the foam are
gauze pads that have a
honeycomb structure,"
he said. "When resin is
applied, it flows around a
channel, but not into the
gauze pads. The result is
a very light sail."
"It's a two-piece sail,"
Taylor added. "The de-
sign came from the 2010
America's Cup, when
the first slotted wings
competed in the race."
Working out of his
workshop near the
airport, Taylor said he has
been experimenting with
different designs for his
wing sails.
"My early stuff was like
a box," he said. "Then I
made an angular one,
and then a curved one
that was narrow at the
top and then widened at
the bottom."
Taylor said he used
clysar, a thermoplastic,
to cover his sails, hoping
the material will allow
his Laser wing sails to
increase their speed.

you'll go like hell," he
Ray said he has used
the wing sails on only
one occasion, and he is
excited to see how they

will perform at sea.
"I sailed a Hobie Bravo,
like a catamaran, using
the wing sail," he said.
"It's hard to tell what
you're doing wrong. A
soft sail will start flapping
letting you know, but
not a hard sail. If you do
it right, however, it will
reward you with speed."
Ray said the fastest
boat using a slotted sail
is the Sail Rocket, which
has been clocked at
65 knots.
"It can pass you on the
freeway," he said.
Bob Hill, piloting the
other Laser wing sail,
said speed is an unknown
factor, until they can get
out on the harbor.
"Even in a low wind,
the wing sails are more
efficient than a soft sail,"
he said. "But we'll see
when we get out there."
Taylor said at last year's
regatta there were 100
Laser Masters in the
harbor; this year there
are just two, both owned
by him, with a third

have seen how mine

____________________ *_ ____ *_ __________________________5046229,

For a president looking for
a legacy piece of legisla-
tion, the current state of
the immigration debate
represents a high-wire act.
President Barack Obama
could act alone to slow
deportations, and proba-
bly doom any chance of a
permanent and compre-
hensive overhaul. Yet if he
shows too much patience,
the opportunity to fix im-
migration laws as he wants
could well slip away.
As Republican leaders
dampen expectations for
overhauling immigration
laws this year, the White
House is hoping that the
GOP resistance is tem-
porary and tactical, and
Obama is resisting pres-
sure from some political
allies to take matters into
his own hands and ease his
administration's deporta-
tion record.
House Speaker John
Boehner this week all but
ruled out passage of immi-
gration legislation before
the fall midterm elections,
saying Republicans had
trouble trusting that
Obama would implement
all aspects of an immigra-
tion law.
White House officials
say they believe Boehner
ultimately wants to get
it done. But they ac-
knowledge that Boehner
faces stiff resistance from
conservatives who oppose
any form of legalization
for immigrants who have
crossed into the United
States illegally or over-
stayed their visas. As well,
Republicans are eager to
keep this election year's
focus on Obama's health
care law.
Obama is willing to give
Boehner space to operate
and to tamp down the
conservative outcry that

greeted a set of immigra-
tion overhaul principles
the speaker brought
forward last week. For now,
the White House is simply
standing behind a compre-
hensive bill that passed in
the Senate last year, but is
not trying to press Boehner
on how to proceed in the
Vice President Joe Biden
told CNN that Obama
is waiting to see what
the House passes before
The White House view
could be overly optimistic,
playing down the strength
of the opposition to acting
this year.
For Republicans the
immigration issue poses
two political challenges. In
the short term, it displays
intraparty divisions when
they want to use their
unified opposition to
the health care law as
a key issue in the 2014
elections. Immigration
distracts from that
strategy. But failure to pass
an immigration overhaul
would be a significant
drag on the chances of a
Republican winning the

2016 presidential election
if angry Latino voters are
mobilized to vote for the
Democratic nominee.
Making the case for a
delay, Rep. Raul Labrador,
R-Idaho, said there's
"overwhelming support
for doing nothing this
year." Labrador, who
worked with a small
group of Republicans and
Democrats on compre-
hensive legislation last
year then abandoned the
negotiations, said it would
be a mistake to have an
internal battle in the GOP
He argued for waiting
until next year when the
Republicans might have
control of the Senate.
Some Republican sup-
porters of a new immigra-
tion law are pushing back.
"I'm trying to convince
my colleagues that
regardless of primaries,
regardless of elections this
November, that we have
an obligation and a duty to
solve this crisis once and
for all," Rep. Jeff Denham,
R-Calif., told the Spanish-
language television
network Telemundo in an
interview scheduled to air

House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio arrives for a news confer-
ence on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014.
Boehner said Thursday it will be difficult to pass immigration
legislation this year, dimming prospects for one of President
Barack Obama's top domestic priorities.

Experts increasingly contemplate end of smoking

Health officials have
begun to predict the end
of cigarette smoking in
They have long wished
for a cigarette-free
America, but shied away
from calling for smoking
rates to fall to zero or
near zero by any partic-
ular year. The power of
tobacco companies and
popularity of their prod-
ucts made such a goal
seem like a pipe dream.
But a confluence of
changes has recently
prompted public health
leaders to start throwing
around phrases like
"endgame" and "tobacco
free generation." Now,
they talk about the
slowly-declining adult
smoking rate dropping
to 10 percent in the next
decade and to 5 percent
or lower by 2050.
Acting U.S. Surgeon
General Boris Lushniak
last month released
a 980-page report on
smoking that pushed
for stepped-up tobacco
control measures. His
news conference was
an unusually animated
showing of anti-smoking
bravado, with Lushniak
nearly yelling, repeatedly,
"Enough is enough!" "I
can't accept that we're just
allowing these numbers
to trickle down," he said,
in a recent interview with
the AP "We believe we
have the public health
tools to get us to the zero
This is not the first time
a federal health official
has spoken so boldly. In
1984, Surgeon General C.
Everett Koop called for a
"smoke-free society" by
the year 2000. However,
Koop a bold talker on
many issues didn't
offer specifics on how to
achieve such a goal.
"What's different today
is that we have policies

and programs that have
been proven to drive
down tobacco use," said
Matthew Myers, presi-
dent of the Campaign for
Tobacco-Free Kids. "We
couldn't say that in 1984."
Among the things that
have changed:
Cigarette taxes have
increased around the
country, making smokes
more expensive. Though
prices vary from state to
state, on average a pack
of cigarettes that would
have sold for about $1.75
20 years ago would cost
more than triple that now.
Laws banning
smoking in restaurants,
bars and workplaces have
popped up all over the
country. Airline flights
have long been off-limits
for smoking.
Polls show that
cigarette smoking is no
longer considered normal
behavior, and is now less
popular among teens
than marijuana.
Federal officials are
increasingly aggressive
about anti-smoking
advertising. The Food
and Drug Administration
launched a new youth
tobacco prevention
campaign last week. At
about the same time,
the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention
debuted a third,
$60 million round of its
successful anti-tobacco
ad campaign this
one featuring poignant,
deathbed images of a
woman featured in earlier
Tobacco companies,
once considered im-
pervious to legal attack,
have suffered some huge
defeats in court. Perhaps
the biggest was the 1998
settlement of a case
brought by more than 40

Retailing of cigarettes
is changing, too. CVS
Caremark, the nation's
second-largest pharmacy
chain, announced last
week it will stop selling
tobacco products at its
more than 7,600 drug-
stores. The company said
it made the decision in
a bid to focus more on
providing health care,
but medical and public
health leaders predicted
pressure will increase on
companies likeWalgreen
Co. and Walmart Stores
Inc. to follow suit.
"I do think, in another
few years, that pharma-
cies selling cigarettes will
look as anachronistic" as
old cigarette ads featuring
physician endorsements
look today, said CDC
Director Dr. Tom Frieden.

These developments
have made many in
public health dream
bigger. It's caused Myers'
organization and others
to recently tout the goal
of bringing the adult
smoking rate down to
10 percent by 2024, from
the current 18 percent.
That would mean drop-
ping it at twice the speed
it declined over the last
10 years.
The bigger goal is to re-
duce U.S. smoking-relat-
ed deaths to fewer than
10,000, from the current
level of 440,000. But even
if smoking rates dropped
to zero immediately, it
would take decades to
see that benefit, since
cancers can take decades
to develop.
But while some
experts and advocates
are swinging for the
fences, others are more


pessimistic. They say
the key to reaching such
goals is not simply more
taxes and more local
smoking bans, but action
by the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration to
regulate smoking.
A 2009 federal law gave
the FDA the authority to
regulate tobacco prod-
ucts. The law barred FDA
from outright blocking
the sale of cigarettes, but
the agency was free to
take such pivotal steps
as prohibiting the use
of appealing menthol
flavoring in cigarettes
and requiring cigarette
makers to ratchet down
the amount of addictive
nicotine in each smoke.
But nearly five years
after gaining power over
cigarettes, FDA has yet to
even propose such regu-
lations. Agency officials
say they're working on it.
Many believe FDAs

Drink makers giving people ways to ditch the can

keeps getting easier to
ditch the soda can.
When Coca-Cola said
this week that it would let
people make its drinks at
home using a beverage
machine, it became the
latest company to take
advantage of a growing
trend: People turning
to flavored drops or
at-home carbonation ma-
chines that do away with
the need to haul home
bulky cans and bottles
from the supermarket.
While such alternatives
still represent a tiny
fraction of the beverage
market, they're growing
at a far faster rate than
the industry's traditional
ready-to-drink business.
"It's a mega trend
we've seen," said Charles
Torrey, vice president of
marketing for Coca-Cola's
Minute Maid unit, which
this week introduced
liquid drops that people
make juice drinks on the
go. "Consumers want
things personalized to
their own tastes."
Drinks that come in
bottles and cans will still
account for the bulk of
the beverage industry for
years to come, of course.
And it's not clear whether
at-home beverage ma-
chines will catch on more
broadly. Still, companies
like Coke and Pepsi are
looking for new ways
to grow, with the tradi-
tional cans-and-bottles

Coffee Roasters, which
makes single-serve
coffee machines and is
partnering with Coca-
Cola to make a cold
beverage machine, saw

Flavored drops for
water are also becoming
popular. Kraft in 2011
introduced its MiO flavor
drops, which come in
small bottles that can be
carried around in a purse

or pocket. The idea is
that people can squirt as
much or as little flavor
as they want into their
water. The company has
since added Kool-Aid and
Crystal Light drops to its
lineup. Others including
Coca-Cola and PepsiCo
quickly jumped into the
space as well.

Cease-fire in Syrian city breaks down, halts aid

trucks carrying food and
medical supplies into
rebel-held neighborhoods
in the central Syrian city
of Horns turned back
under heavy fire Saturday,
leaving four paramedics
wounded as a cease-fire
broke down, Syrian
officials said. Opposition
activists said the govern-
ment broke the truce by
launching a rocket attack
on one of the neighbor-
hoods they hold.
Talal Barrazi, the gov-
ernor of Homrns province,
told the Lebanon-based
Al-Mayadeen TV that the
attack occurred late in the
afternoon and that the
trucks were targeted by

two roadside bombs and
a mortar shell.
He later told Syrian
state TV that two trucks
were able to reach
opposition-held neigh-
borhoods earlier in the
day. Al-Mayadeen also
reported that two trucks,
carrying 250 food parcels,
were able to cross into
rebel-held areas Saturday.
Syrian TV said four
members of the Syrian
Arab Red Crescent were
wounded by rebel fire
in the area, but gave no
further details.
Barrazi said about 100
civilians expected to be
evacuated from reb-
el-held had yet to arrive.
On Friday, 83 children,

women and elderly
people on wheelchairs
were evacuated from
Horns, the first people to
leave the area in months,
the U.N. said.
Syrian forces loyal to
President Bashar Assad
have prevented the entry
of food and medical aid
into rebel-held parts of
the city for over a year,
badly affecting hundreds
of civilians holed up in
the areas. An agreement
had called for a three-
day truce to allow the
evacuation of some
civilians and the entry of
food shipments.
Al-Mayadeen aired live
footage from the city's
Clock Square showing

two white trucks iden-
tified with Syrian Arab
Red Crescent markings
as they returned after
coming under fire. The
station's reporter in the
area said the radiator of
one of the trucks was hit
by a bullet.
"After the vehicles
drove about 200 meters
(yards) two roadside
bombs went off, and
when they kept going a
mortar round fell in the
area coming from the
direction of Hamadiyeh,"
said Barrazi, referring

KABUL, Afghanistan
(LA Times) -A military
dog captured by the
Taliban in Afghanistan
two months ago is in
good health and being
fed a diet of kebabs, his
captors say.
The fate of the dog be-
came the subject of wide-
spread speculation after
the Taliban posted an
Internet video this week
showing a chocolate-col-
ored Belgian Malinois,
wearing a military-style
black vest, surrounded
by bearded militants
in an undisclosed area
of Afghanistan. The
video was first identified
Wednesday by the SITE
Intelligence Group, which
tracks militant websites.
The Taliban claimed in
a statement that the dog
was seized in a firefight
with international troops
in eastern Laghman
province on Dec. 23. It
said the dog belonged to
U.S. forces.
But British media
reported that the dog
belonged to British spe-
cial forces. Like the U.S.
military, British forces

breed on the battlefield
because of its agility and

in the roadway.
Igor Polishchuk, one of
the men placing the tires,
said the crowd intended to
show its peaceful oppo-
sition to the protests that
have pushed the country
into a political crisis and
complained that police
had done little against the
"It's a critical mass in
there, without control,"
he said. "The authorities
aren't anywhere inside."
Protesters from the an-
ti-government side stood
atop the 10-foot barricade
and members of the pro-
test camp's self-defense

marshaled, many of them
carrying metal shields and
protecting their heads
with cycling or hockey
After about two hours,
the protesters' opponents
pulled back, with the
self-defense volunteers
following, banging their
shields with rods in an
eerie imitation of the
technique used by the
country's feared riot
After riot police vio-
lently dispersed two of
the early protest rallies,
crowds swelled some-
times exceeding 100,000

relatively light weight,
often deploying the dogs
to sniff for explosives.
A Belgian Malinois
named Cairo became a
minor celebrity in 2011
when U.S. officials dis-
closed that it had been
part of the Navy SEAL
team that killed Osama
bin Laden in a covert
raid in Pakistan.
Lt. Col. Laurie
Arellano, a spokes-
woman for the U.S.-led
coalition in Afghanistan
known as the
International Security
Assistance Force, said,
"We can confirm that
a military working dog
went missing following
an ISAF mission in
December 2013." She
declined to specify
which country the dog
was from.
Coalition officials
could not name another
case of a canine taken
prisoner during the 13-
year war in Afghanistan.
President Hamid
Karzai has chafed at
international troops'
use of dogs because
Afghans, like many other
Muslims, regard the
animal as unclean.

the country's worst social

Dogs take on
show's agility trial
Hundreds of dogs are
running, leaping, weaving
and breaking new ground
at the Westminster
Kennel Club show's first
agility competition.
About 225 dogs are
competing at Saturday's
event at Pier 94 in New
The agility trial adds
a dynamic, fast-growing
sport to the nation's
best-known dog show.
And it marks the first time
mixed-breed dogs have
appeared at Westminster
since early in the show's
138 years.
The competitors span
63 different breeds, from
tiny papillons and toy
poodles to big dogs such
as Doberman pinschers
and Rottweilers.
The animals race
through a course of
jumps, tunnels, ramps,
and other obstacles in a
sort of dog-world decath-
lon. Handlers guide them
with signals and calls.
The final rounds were
set for Saturday night.
They were televised on
Fox Sports 1.

Media sometimes try, fail to keep NSA's secrets

organizations publishing
leaked National Security
Agency documents have
inadvertently disclosed
the names of at least six
intelligence workers and
other government secrets
they never intended to
give away, an Associated
Press review has found.
The accidental disclo-
sures illustrate the risks
of even well-intentioned,
public-interest reporting
on highly secret U.S.
In some cases, promi-
nent newspapers includ-
ing The New York Times
quickly pulled down
government records they
published online and
recensored them to hide
information they acci-
dentally exposed. On one
occasion, the Guardian
newspaper published
an NSA document that
appeared to identify an
American intelligence
target living abroad.
Before the newspaper
could fix its mistake,
a curious software
engineer, Ron Garret
of Emerald Hills, Calif.,
tried to contact the man
at his office.
"I figured someone
ought to give him the
heads up," Garret told
The Associated Press.
The inadvertent
disclosures, which
include technical details
and other information,
are another complication
in the ethically and
technically challenging
coverage of the NSAs
surveillance programs.
Journalists who have
seen the unfiltered
secrets leaked by former
intelligence worker
Edward Snowden agree
that some things are
off-limits for publication.
But media organizations
sometimes have strug-
gled to keep them that
Glenn Greenwald, the
reporter and columnist
who has played a key role
in publishing so many of
Snowden's revelations,
has said he wouldn't
publish the names
of U.S. intelligence
workers unless they
were top-ranking public
officials. Greenwald told
the AP that the mistaken
disclosures of at least six
names and other mate-
rial were minor errors
made by technical staff
and quickly corrected.
"We reported on
these documents with
the largest and most
well-respected media
organizations in the
world, but like all human
institutions, none is
perfect," Greenwald said.
It was not immediately
clear what damage, if
any, has come from the
disclosures of the names
of the six NSA employees
and other secrets. The
NSA would not discuss
its employees. None
appeared to be working
The AP was able to
locate several of their
home addresses and
other personal details
about them. The NSA
said in a statement that
it asks news outlets "to
redact and withhold the
names of employees,
given the sensitive nature
of the information and
concerns for the safety
of employees and their
The AP is not repub-
lishing the names of
the NSA employees. It
generally uses full names
of government employ-
ees unless there is a
specific threat or security
concern. In this instance,
the AP concluded the
names were not vital to

readers' understanding
of the issues and provid-
ed no additional credibil-
ity or transparency into
the issues.
The accidental disclo-
sures the AP counted

at least eight of them
- involve carelessness
by some television
broadcasters, sloppy
digital redactions applied
to copies of documents
and, in the Guardian's
case, an incomplete
understanding of what
information might be
The Canadian
Corporation's nightly
news program, "The
National," revealed the
names of three NSA

employees when its
cameras panned across
NSA documents during
"They were scrolling
through it and I thought,
'Hold on, that's an unre-
dacted, classified docu-
ment,'" said Christopher
Parsons, who noticed
the mistake. "It was
kind of nuts. I couldn't
believe that they were so
cavalierly showing it on
national television."
Parsons, a privacy
expert at the University

of Toronto's Munk School
of Global Affairs, was
able to read the employ-
ees' names by pausing,
rewinding and replaying
the video.
CBC's director of
news content, David
Walmsley, said the net-
work regretted the error,
pulled the video off its
website and purged the
material from its servers.
"It was a mistake
that occurred because
we had pixelated the
documents and we

thought we'd done it
well enough. Clearly
we didn't," he said.
Walmsley said the CBC
took responsibility for
the mistake. He said
Greenwald had asked
that NSA employee
names not be broadcast.
The same thing hap-
pened at the Brazilian
television station Globo,
which briefly exposed
the names of two NSA
employees during its
weekly news program
"Fantastico" last year.

Firstborn? That may increase a man's risk of being overweight

(LA Times) -
Warning: Being a first-
born may be hazardous
to your health.
So suggests a small
study of middle-age
men in New Zealand.
Compared with their
younger brothers, the
firstborns weighed more
and were less sensitive
to insulin.
Researchers had
recruited the guys to
be part of clinical trials
testing whether olive
leaf extract or krill oil
could improve their
metabolic health. All
of the volunteers were
between the ages of 35
and 55, and all were

overweight, with a body
mass index between 25
and 30.
To study the effects
of birth order, they
pulled out data from
trial participants who
were either the first or
second child born in
their family. Men were
excluded if they had
diabetes, high blood
pressure or high cho-
lesterol, or if they were
on any medications
that might affect these
conditions. Smokers
and other tobacco users
were also dropped from
the analysis. The final
group included 26 first-
borns and 24 seconds.

Though men in both
groups were about
the same height on
average 5 feet 10 inches
for the older brothers
and 5 feet 9 inches for
the younger there
were significant differ-
ences in weight. The
average weight for the
older brothers was just
over 200 pounds, while
the younger brothers
averaged 185 pounds.
As a result, their BMIs
diverged as well: 29.1
for the firstborns and
27.5 for the seconds.
These differences
arose despite the fact
that men in both groups
had similar amounts

of body fat. The older
brothers averaged
32.2 percent body fat,
compared with 29.9
percent for the younger.
The difference wasn't
statistically significant.
However, there was a
real difference in insulin
sensitivity, which was
33 percent lower in
the firstborn men than
the younger brothers.
(When the body doesn't
respond properly to
insulin, it can lead to
problems like diabe-
tes, heart disease and
obesity.) This difference
was seen even after re-
searchers controlled for
the amount of exercise

the men got, their fat
mass and other factors.
The researchers at the
University of Auckland
speculated that some-
thing had happened in
the womb that made the
firstborns more vulner-
able to these metabolic
One possibility they
mentioned was placental
blood flow. A first preg-
nancy causes changes
in certain arteries in the
uterus, and those changes
are permanent. That
means firstborns don't
get the benefit of these
changes from the mo-
ment of conception, but
second children do. (This

might also explain why
firstborns generally have
lower birth weights than
the next child, they said.)
The researchers said
that their results may
not apply to women.
In fact, they may not
generalize beyond
middle-age overweight
white men (92 percent
of the men in the study
were of European de-
scent). Still, the results
were intriguing enough
to warrant further study,
they wrote.
The results were
published Thursday in
the journal Scientific
Reports, a Nature

Blind mice hear like

Stevie Wonder

Times) -Want to hear as
well as StevieWonder or the
late Ray Charles? A blind-
fold not only might help, it
could rewire your brain in
the process, a new study
The study, in mice, was
the first to show evidence
on a cellular level of a
phenomenon that has been
relatively well-chronicled
behaviorally- damage to
one sense can be com-
pensated with strength in
another. And that compen-
sation can happen later
in life, when the brain is
generally less susceptible to
rewiring, the study found.
Blinding mice for about
a week altered synapses
connecting the thalamus
to the auditory cortex,
according to the study, pub-
lished online Wednesday
in the journal Neuron. The
changes in hearing acuity
were not due to recruitment
of vision neurons, which re-
mained unchanged, while

those in the auditory cortex
exhibited more sensitivity
and discrimination among
sounds, the study showed.
"We always thought that
the adult brain just couldn't
change, and there was
some evidence supporting
this," said study author
Hey-Kyoung Lee, a neuro-
scientist at Johns Hopkins
University's Mind/Brain
Institute. "The plasticity is
really reduced. The surprise
here was that we were able
to regain that by depriving
vision. And it's not the
visual area that changes; it's
actually the auditory area
that changes. So we were
doubly surprised by the
findings that we had."
The improvements also
were dependent on experi-
ence deafened mice that
had been subjected to the
weeklong blinding did not
experience the changes in
auditory synapse activity,
according to the study,
which also involved the
University of Maryland.

The way Phil Sanchez
steered his Hobie 16 over
to Bill Jeffers and Bill
Whalen for a friendly
word after Saturday's
first race a the Charlotte
Harbor Regatta, you
would have thought the
yachtsmen see each other
all the time.
They do, they're just
usually out on the water
when it happens. Such
is the friendly nature of
the folks who compete in
these races.
And some of the
acquaintances go back
"We get to know all of
the Florida guys every
time we come down
here," Jeffers said. "We
see some of them at na-
tionals. Phil Sanchez ... I
used to race against him
in the 80s. He used to win
everything in Florida."
Sanchez, a St.
Petersburg resident,
had a laugh recounting
when he came across the
Jeffers-Whalen boat at
the regatta last year, after
he had taken some time
away from the sport. The
two boats were going
for the finish line when
Sanchez called out a rule
to the Jeffers-Whalen
"That hasn't been a
rule for 10 years!" Jeffers
called back.
"I haven't been on
a boat for 10 years!"
Sanchez responded. "My
son Jason bought the
A light bulb had gone
off in Jeffers' head.
"Holy cow. Jason
"By any chance are you
Phil Sanchez?" Jeffers
shouted. "I used to chase
you around in the 80s."
There was a lot of that
going around, even on
Jeffers' own team. Whalen
was only teaming with
Jeffers for the second
time. It seemed to work
out right the last time:
they won the Hobie 16s
at last year's Charlotte
Harbor Regatta.
So far, the partnership
is working well again.

Medals table



The Sun /Sunday, February 9, 2014 SP Page 3

Grim talk turns to gold:
All the gloom and grim talk leading to
the Sochi Olympics at last gave way to
more uplifting things.
IOC President Thomas Bach said it's
"time that it finally starts."And so it did
Saturday the first competition since
the cauldron was lit.
In all, 98 gold medals will be
awarded over the next 16 days, and five
were settled on Day 2.

Family affair: The Dufour-
Lapointe family swept the top two
spots in the women's moguls. Youngest
sister Justine won gold and middle
sister Chloe got the silver.
"A dream. A long time, we've
dreamed this," said their father, Yves.
"It doesn't get any better than this. It
Oldest sister Maxime also made it
into the finals, where she finished 12th.
The Canadians aren't the first sisters
to finish 1-2 at the Winter Olympics.
Christine and Marielle Goitschel of
France did it twice in Alpine skiing at
the 1964 Innsbruck Games, and Doris
and Angelika Neuner of Austria did it in
luge at the 1992 Albertville Olympics.
The 1-2 finish kept American
Hannah Kearney, the top-ranked and
most consistent skier in the world over
the past four years, from becoming the
first back-to-back winner of an Olympic
freestyle event. The 27-year-old from
Norwich, Vt., was inconsolable despite
winning the bronze medal.
"No one in life wants their best part
of their career to be behind them;she
said. "And unfortunately, that's what it
feels like right now."

Sochi's first gold, slope-
style's first Games: Sage
Kotsenburg tamed the treacherous
slopestyle course, getting the first gold
medal of the games (see story, Page 4).
"I can't even describe the feeling,"
Kotsenburg said. "It's so cool."
The American did it with a run
that left the 20-year-old who talks
like a surfer and rides like a purist
momentarily stunned in disbelief.
Staale Sandbech of Norway got
silver while Canadian Mark McMorris,
who nearly missed the finals because
of a broken rib, surged to bronze as
slopestyle made its Olympic debut.

Dutch masters: With the
king, queen and prime minister of his
country cheering him on, Sven Kramer
of the Netherlands set an Olympic
record and defended his title in the
men's 5,000 meters in speeskating.
The 27-year-old Dutchman flew
around the big oval and won gold with
a time of 6 minutes, 10.76 seconds. He
easily beat the Olympic mark of 6:14.60
that he set in Vancouver.
"That Sven ... leaves me speech-
less;King Willem-Alexander said.
The powerful Dutch team swept the
medals. Jan Blokhuijsen took the silver
and Jorrit Bergsma got the bronze.
The Americans weren't close in
this one. Seventeen-year-old Emery
Lehman of Oak Park, Ill., was the top
American finisher, placing 16th in his
Olympic debut.

Isn't he good: Norwegian Ole
Einar Bjoerndalen became the oldest
individual gold medalist at the Winter
Olympics. The 40-year-old won the
men's 10-kilometer sprint in biathlon,
his seventh career gold. He beat the
record held by Canadian skeleton racer
Duff Gibson, who was 39 when he won
gold at the 2006 Turin Olympics.
Earning his 12th medal overall,
Bjoerndalen also tied the record of
fellow countryman and cross-country
skiing great Bjoern Daehlie for most
medals won at the Winter Games.
Tim Burke of Paul Smiths, N.Y., was
the top U.S. finisher at 19th.

Silence on gay issues:
Plenty of athletes made clear before
traveling to Sochi how unhappy they
were about gay rights being curtailed
in Russia, particularly with its law
banning gay "propaganda.'
But so far, competitors and coaches
have largely been silent. Skating coach
Brian Orser, who is gay, said:"l have
my feelings about it, but I don't know
if this is the time or the place to voice
it, although we do have a big audience,
and that's sort of important as well. So I
am kind of torn!'

American Sage Kotsenburg takes a jump during the men's snowboard slopestyle semifinal at the Rosa Khutor
Extreme Park in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia. He won to become the first gold medalist of the Sochi Olympics.

Snowboarder gives U.S.

gnarly golden beginning

-Those gnarly dude guys on
snowboards continue to hijack
the Olympics. It is difficult to
pinpoint the exact date when
this hijacking began. But every
four years at the Winter Games,
the gnarly dudes happen.
"Random is kind of my
thing," said America's newest
Olympic hero, a 20-year-old
named Sage Kotsenburg, who
won the first gold medal of the
Sochi Games here Saturday.
Just don't ask me to describe
how Kotsenburg did it, ex-
actly. But I can affirm that his
performance in the Olympics'
first-ever slopestyle competi-
tion was indeed spectacularly
It was also sick. And not
janky at all. Kotsenburg
said he "tweaked my grabs"
Snowboarding was intro-
duced to the Winter Olympics
in 1992. And every four years,
the discipline has added more
events-and even sprouted
into a separate extreme segment

eye candy. Television cameras
worship the extreme events.
Directors and producers weep
in joy at the slow motion re-
plays of all the mid-air spinning
and tumbling (and grabbing.)
This, in turn, explains why
snowboarders and free skiers
often develop into the Games'
biggest rock stars. Kotsenburg

earned his status Saturday.
He promised to "keep things
weird" and then delivering on
that promise, big time.
Last week, there was dis-
appointment in USA circles
when White withdraw from the
new slopestyle event, which
is sort of a downhill obstacle
course featuring structures and
rails early on, then a series of
snow ramps to send boarders
sailing into space for four or
five seconds worth of aerial
mayhem. White, who is nursing
injuries, chose to concentrate
on the upcoming halfpipe
competition instead.
But no worries, bro! Into
the American breach stepped
Kotsenburg, a mellow blonde
longhair who grew up snow-
boarding in Utah and might be
an even more free spirit than
Actually, scratch the "might
be" phraseology. Kotsenburg
made a truly crazy choice
here Saturday at Rose Khutor
Extreme Park. He went beyond
rogue, even in a rogue sport.
The setup: Kotsenburg
was a large underdog in the
slopestyle event. He needed
to navigate an extra semifinal
round of qualifying just to
reach the finals. Once there,
he had nothing to lose. So he
aimed to impress the judges
by spontaneously attempting a
trick he had never tried before,
even in practice-the "Back 16
Japan" with four and a half
spinning doodles or twizzles
while grabbing the back of his
As a bonus, Kotsenburg
also unveiled a jump that he'd
invented just three months
ago, the "Holy Crail," with other

sorts of indescribable doodles
and twizzles.
"I had no idea I'd do it
until three minutes before I
jumped," Kotsenburg said.
Wicked-osity! Kotsenburg
executed every one of his
moves perfectly on his two final
passes down the hill. On his
first run, he posted the day's
highest score. Then he watched
all the other gnarly dudes plow
and fly down the hill.
None of their scores beat
Kotsenburg's. As with all judged
sports, the result was highly
subjective. But none of the
losers grumbled too loud.
"Sage is a super-creative
snowboarder," said silver
medalist Staale Sandbech of
Norway. "I kind of saw in the
first run that the judges were
rewarding grabs."
"I'm pretty surprised to win,"
admitted Kotsenburg, who last
month broke a long victory
drought by claiming first prize
at an event on the slopestyle
"Before that," he said, "I
hadn't won anything since I
was, like, 11 years old."
And, like, that's pretty
awesome. As a new Olympic
champ, Kotsenburg should be
in position to, like, call his own
random shots for the rest of
his career. He's young enough
that he should be around for
the next two or three Olympics.
But after tossing and turning
nervously in bed Friday night,
he had one request following
Saturday's medal ceremony.
"I really need some sleep
right now," he said, promis-
ing to doze off as weirdly as

Armchair Olympics: NBC's coverage highlights

In a sign of how closely NBC's actions
are being watched, the website Deadspin
compared a speech that International
Olympic Committee President Thomas
Bach made with the edited version NBC
aired and headlined a story, "NBC Edits Out
IOC Anti-Discrimination Statement From
Opening Ceremony."True. NBC also left in
another anti-discrimination statement by
Bach. He made a point about the value of
tolerance more than once in his speech. You
could argue that the stronger statement
was edited out but not that NBC altered
his message. Rich Ferraro, spokesman for
the gay rights advocacy group GLAAD,
said Saturday he had no comment on
the editing. He said NBC's networks don't
appear to by shying away from the issue of
how gays and lesbians are treated in Russia,
and they should keep it up.
An estimated 31.7 million people
watched the opening ceremony on Friday
night, the Nielsen company said. That's
down 1 million from the audience for the
2010 Winter Olympics opening ceremony
in Vancouver, which was televised live. NBC
prefers a comparison to the last Winter
Olympics opener shown via tape delay,
from Turin in 2006, which was seen by 22.2
million viewers. The individual market with
the best ratings was Minneapolis.

NBC is experimenting by airing live
figure skating during the daytime on its NBC
Sports Network, while showing tape-de-
layed coverage of the same events on the
broadcast network in prime-time. The plan
also gives on-the-job training to what
may be its next generation of marquee
analysts, the team of Johnny Weir and Tara
Lipinski. Lipinski is the more experienced
broadcaster, and it shows. So far Weir is
concentrating on hitting his marks and not
worrying about adding flair.
The NBC Sports Network aired Mary
Carillo's feature about touring Sochi with
Maria Sharapova less than 24 hours after
it was initially shown on NBC. Really?

NBC sports reporter Tanith Belbin, a
former ice dancer, was asked by Dan Patrick
whether she can be impartial in reporting
about her boyfriend, American ice dancer
Charlie White, and his teammate, Meryl
Davis. "I do have an objective eye"she said.
"To a certain degree, of course. I'm also
nervous watching them skate. I want them
to succeed'."

the second half.
To give Alabama a chance,
Grant changed up the game
plan, scraping his methodical,
half-court approach in favor of
an up-tempo attack. The switch
caught the Gators flat-footed.

Allen lose

BOCA RATON Michael Allen
birdied four of his last eight holes
for a 3-under 69 and a one-stroke
lead over Scott Dunlap and Chien
Soon Lu on Saturday in the Allianz
Championship at Broken Sound.
A day after becoming the
ninth player to shoot a 60 on the
Champions Tour, Allen fell out of
the lead after playing his first 11
holes in 1 over. He birdied the next
two holes to move into a share of
the lead and birdied the last two to
finish two rounds at 15-under 129.
"I knew if I hung in there, event
ally the birdies would start coming,
said Allen, a five-time winner on th
50-and-over tour.
With calm, warm condition on
The Old Course, the field combined
for a scoring average of 69.6, the
lowest in the eight-year history of
the event. Lu shot his second con-
secutive 65, and Dunlap followed
his opening 63 with a 67. Both
players are winless on the tour.
DuffyWaldorfwas fourth at 13
under after a 63. He played the fron
nine in 7-under 29.

Walker leads by six at Pebble: In
Pebble Beach, Calif., Jimmy Walker had a hot hand ir
the cold wind Saturday and built a six-shot lead in th
AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
Walker made his first bogey of the tournament,
and that hardly slowed him. He countered with five
birdies in 30 mph gusts at Monterey Peninsula for a
4-under 67. That left Walker on the verge of winning
for the third time in this young PGA Tour season. He
was at 13-under 202.
Tim Wilkinson of New Zealand had a 69 and

s, regains Allianz lead






A PGA Tour official, left, watches to see if the ball moves in the wind on the fourth
green of the Pebble Beach Golf Links on Saturday. High winds forced a two-hour-plus
wind delay. Though play resumed, the round was not completed.

Hunter Mahan had a 72, both at Monterey Peninsula.
They were at 7-under 208. The third round was not
completed because of a delay lasting 2 hours, 19
minutes due to gusts at 30 mph that made golf balls
roll off the green, mostly at Pebble Beach.

Cheyenne Woods leads Ladies
Australian Masters: In Gold Coast, Australia,
American Cheyenne Woods takes a one-stroke lead
into the final round of the Australian Ladies'Masters
after shooting a 2-under 71 to stay on track for her
first professional victory. The 23-year-old niece of
Tiger Woods had a three-round total of 12-under
207 at the Royal Pines Resort.
Stacey Lee Bregman of South Africa, who shared
the lead with Woods at the start of the round, had a
72 to hold second place.

Aiken, Walters lead Joburg Open:
In Johannesburg, local players Thomas Aiken and
Justin Walters moved into a tie for the lead at 17
under. Aiken carded a 9-under 63 on the East Course
at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington, while Walters
shot an 8-under 64, to open a two-shot lead.

Pinehurst preps for Open double-
header: The executive director of the U.S. Golf
Association said Pinehurst's No. 2 course will be set up
the same way for both U.S. opens it will host later this
year (June 12-15 and 19-22).
Mike Davis said the par-70 course will play at
about 7,500 yards for the men's Open and about
6,700 yards for the women. He said "on a given hole,
if the men are hitting drivers, we want to see the
women hit drivers'."

Dodgers open spring training: In
Glendale, Ariz., Los Angeles Dodgers pitchers and
catchers reported for spring training. The reigning NL
West champs gathered earlier than usual to prepare

for a two-game opening series against Arizona in
Sydney, Australia, on March 22-23.0 Off the field, Los
Angeles agreed to a $1.5 million, one-year contract
with left-hander Paul Maholm....
The Chicago Cubs and starting pitcher Jeff
Samardzija agreed to a one-year, $5,345,000 contract,
avoiding arbitration. The deal leaves the Cubs with no
remaining players in arbitration ...
San Diego's Andrew Cashner won and Cleveland's
Vinnie Pestano lost as pitchers split decisions in
baseball's first salary arbitration cases in two years.
Cashner will make $2.4 million rather than the club's
offer of $2,275,000. Pestano, among four Indians
left in arbitration, will make $975,000 instead of his
request for $1.45 million.

Iditarod's start could move: The
Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race's competitive starting
point could move hundreds of miles north to
Fairbanks, Alaska, because of poor trail conditions.
If race officials make the change, the ceremonial
kickoff would remain March 1 in Anchorage, but the
competitive start would be delayed a day to March 3
to give mushers time to drive 360 miles north.

system gets



prospects is

behind the

ratings slide

While predictions and
projections for Tampa
Bay's big-league team
are soaring, the farm
system isn't getting very
good reviews.
After ranking No. 1
three times and in the
top four three others in
Baseball America's past
seven organizational
talent rankings (and
llth in 2012), the Rays
dropped to 20th in the
latest listing.
And after being ranked
second best in 2012 and
third in 2013 in Keith
Law's ESPN farm system
rating, Tampa Bay plum-
meted to 23rd this year.
These type of rankings
are obviously subjective,
snapshots based on
arbitrary criteria. But
for an organization
with the objective to
build through player
development, it's not an
encouraging sign.
Rays executive vice
president Andrew
Friedman didn't totally
disagree with the critical
"I think we have a lot
of depth in our system,"
he said. "I think the one
area we're probably not
as good as we'd like it
to be is in the elite kind
of top-end talent, not
having as many high-end
guys as we would like.
But I think the depth is
pretty strong."
With outfielder Wil
Myers the Rays'
third AL rookie of the
year in six years and
right-handed pitcher
Chris Archer in the
majors, and injuries
limiting the value of
shortstop Hak-Ju Lee
and right-handed pitch-
er Taylor Guerrieri, the
latest rankings highlight
that absence.
No Rays prospect
made the top 50 in any
of the major lists.
Right-hander Jake
Odorizzi was the top
Rays prospect on MLB.
come's list at 56, with Lee
84th and Guerrieri 94th.
Guerrieri was 66th on
Law's list, with Lee 79th
and 2013 first-round
pick catcher Nick Ciuffo
95th. Left-hander Enny
Romero was 90th on
Baseball Prospectus'
list, with Odorizzi 92nd.

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

Rays made any of the
four top 50 lists in the
new Prospect Handbook.
Both Law and the BA
editors noted that good
trades helped the Rays
make up for unpro-
ductive drafts, but it
appeared to be catching
up to them. Obviously
another trade, of left-
hander David Price,
could help solve the

Book worm: If nothing
else, playing for Oakland after the
Rays will give outfielder Sam Fuld
insight into two organizations
run so well that books have been
written about them. "I'm going to
morph 'Moneyball'with the extra 2
percent," Fuld said."It'll be like'The
Extra Moneyball 2 Percent"...
The Rays are part of Dirk
Hayhurst's soon-to-be-out new
book, "Bigger Than The Game'."

Rays rumblings: Manager
Joe Maddon turned 60 Saturday,
celebrating the night before at a
surprise party staged by his wife,
Jaye. "Sixty is the new 40," Maddon
said. ...
Among other teams, the Rays
have been talking to the Nationals
about catcher Jose Lobaton for a
while, seriously and reportedly for
more than a month. Switch-hitting
infielder Danny Espinosa would be
an interesting name. ...
Congrats to team president Matt
Silverman and wife Andrea on the
birth of their daughter, Alexa ...
Baseball Prospectus'first PECOTA
projections have the Rays, and Red
Sox, winning an AL-most 89 games.

The broadcast teams are set,
with Sun Sports pre-/postgame
analyst Orestes Destrade and radio
pre-/postgame host Neil Solondz
also returning.

Ex-Rays rumblings:
Right-hander Jesse Crain didn't pitch
for the Rays after being acquired in a
July trade, and now after having
biceps surgery in October will
not be ready to start the season with
the Astros ...
Right-hander James Shields
appreciated being back at the Trop
for last weekend's Ted Williams
Museum honors. "There's a lot of
memories in this building; this
is my home,";' he said. "I play for
Kansas City now, but my heart's with
Tampa, and always will be'"He then
asked the fans to remember that the
next time he pitches there and
not boo him.

Donovan Petrey
Junior Port Charlotte Outfielder
Petrey has been a solid hitter with
extra speed in his first two seasons.
How will he adjust to moving down in
the order?

Brendan Cutting
Senior Lemon Bay Catcher
Much will be expected from Cutting
after he signed with Division I Eastern
Kentucky. He has a big bat and a live
arm to second base.

Senior Charlotte Shortstop
In three seasons at Port Charlotte,
Agosto always hit. Now surrounded by
the Tarpons' bats he could be a major,
mid-lineup run-producer.

Andrew Steele
Senior North Port Pitcher
Bobcats coach Dan Pavlue says
Steele has a lot of bulldog in him and
that competitiveness should help if he
becomes the North Port ace this season.



Imagine moves

into district play
NORTH PORT Bryant Sturz
never really thought he would
be in this position when he
essentially founded the Imagine
School baseball program
two seasons ago Imagine's
baseball coach is still waiting
for an experienced group of
Between the end of the 2013
campaign and Monday's season
opener at Sarasota Christian,
several top players transferred,
leaving sophomore infielder
Michael Lima and sophomore
catcher Andy Duffey among his
most experienced players.
But that's all right, too.
"I've been looking for that
upperclass leadership," Sturz
said. "Two of our captains have
been there since Day One. And
they're still underclassmen."
In fact, as Imagine prepared
for its first season in district play
they will compete in District
3A- 10 against established teams
such as Cardinal Mooney and
Out-of-Door Academy they
have four players who have
been there since the start: Lima,
Duffey, sophomore infielder C.J.
Sterlace and eight-grade infielder
Ben Cecchini.
It's unusual that sophomores
are expected to be leaders, but
for Lima and Duffey, it's just part
of the game now. As Sturz noted,
they've even embraced the role.
"It's weird, but I like the lead-
ership aspect of it," Lima said. "I
don't have a problem with it at
all.... I'm glad I can step up to
the plate and help the team."
Sometimes that even requires
the sophomore leaders to have a
word with the upperclassmen on
the team. The Sharks have three
juniors: outfielder K.C. Alvarado,
infielder Zack Sheldon and
infielder-pitcher Patrick Swales.


COACH: Dan Flaherty
LAST YEAR: 12-13, lost in first round of districts
KEY RETURNERS: OF Brandon Murphy, Sr.; IF
Nick Newman, Sr.; P Billy Doktor, Sr.
KEY LOSSES: UT-P Kameron Lockett, P Dillon
OUTLOOK: The Tarpons are a veteran team
with 10 seniors, which should help as the
season begins. OF Murphy and IF Newman
were big hitters last season and will be joined
be transfers Agosto and Howes on what could
be the best hitting Tarpons team since Flaherty
took over as coach in 2010. Senior Blake Parnell
and junior Chris Holland are battling to see
who will become the team's No. 1 starter. The
Tarpons benefit from the redrawing of District
7A-11, which no longer includes powerhouses
Venice, Sarasota or Manatee.


COACH: Casey Hanrahan
LAST YEAR: 9-14, lost in first round of district
KEY RETURNERS: C Brendan Cutting, Sr.; OF-P
Jaryd Clary, So.; P-IF Cole Nelson, Sr.
KEY LOSSES: IF-P Will Dilmore, OF Richie
Fauteux, OF Alex Peterson.
OUTLOOK: First-year coach Casey Hanrahan
likes how his pitching staff is shaking out:
Nelson, Clary and Alec Bigness are competing
for the role of staff ace. Hanrahan likes Nelson:
The senior threw a no-hitter last season at
DeSoto County and consistently throws strikes.
Cutting, who has already committed to Eastern
Kentucky, will be a cornerstone of the lineup
when he returns from basketball. The lineup
is short on power, but should be able to move
runners from base to base. Hanrahan really
wants to put pressure on opposing teams by
speeding up the pace of play.

ready for baby steps

All are in their first year.
"Sometimes, yeah, (I have to),"
Duffey said. "But I don't often
talk to the juniors. They do pretty
If there isn't a leadership short-
age on the roster, the Sharks are
gearing up to prevent a pitching
shortage. Almost everyone on
the team's 13-man roster is being
asked to help.
"We don't have the same
amount of arms," Lima admit-
ted. "Our new challenge is that
we're going to transform every-
body into becoming a pitcher.
Pitcher is the most important
part of baseball."
As one of the Imagine players
trying his hand on the mound,
Lima would know.
The Sharks are still a team in
its infancy, though. They went
6-13-1 last year in a split sched-
ule that mixed varsity and junior
varsity games.
They still don't have a facility
for games on campus, and Sturz
said he hasn't heard anything to
suggest one is imminent. Home
games take place at Atwater Park
in North Port. They do have a
batting cage and a field chalked
for infield practice, though.
And Sturz is happy with the
numbers so far. This will be
the first season that Imagine's
numbers will allow it to split into
varsity and junior varsity squads.
"We haven't quite gotten to the
point where we can cut players,"
Sturz said. "We have cut players
who could get hurt out there and
can't develop into what we need.
But we basically know who's
coming out for tryouts this year."
So it's all about baby steps for
Imagine. Right up to that big-boy
step into their first district
"I'm a sophomore now and I
can play in district play," Lima
said. "I can compete for a district
title when I'm older. It might not
come now, but time will tell."

DISTRICT: Independent
COACH: Randy Jackson
R.J. Strickland, Jr.; P-SS Jacob Foster, So.
OUTLOOK: The Mustangs will have a challenge,
even with their independent schedule, because
of their 11-man roster. But with a new practice
field on the school's campus, big things are
expected. Sophomore Foster and Spencer
Bennett bring experience to the team's pitching
staff (though on a roster this short,just about
everyone will be asked to kick in). The team
will look to score by playing small ball with a
lot of hit-and-run. Jackson likes the speed on
the roster.


COACH: Dan Pavlue
LASTYEAR: 11-15, lost in district semifinal
KEY RETURNERS: OF Michael Brown, Sr.; P
Chase O'Neil, Jr.; P Andrew Steele, Sr.
KEY LOSSES: IF Brian McAlpine, C Adam Mallet.
OUTLOOK: First-year coach Pavlue takes over
a group he sees as strong defensively and on
the mound. The Bobcats have a deep group of
pitchers, and the battle to be the team's ace
has come down to senior right-handers Andrew
Steele, Nathan Burke and Chris Guilbault, each
of whom offers something different. The infield
is a veteran group led by SS Justin Hartshone,
3B Calvin Hough and 1 B Jacob Sheldon. Senior
OF Mike Brown has had a big bat since making
the club as a freshman and will be expected to
contribute offensively.

Catcher Andy Duffey is one of the captains and team leaders for Imagine School
despite being only a sophomore. The Sharks head into their first season of
district play after two seasons as an independent.

FULL NAME: Andrew Lee Duffey Jr. POSITION: Catcher-outfield YEAR: Sophomore
FAVORITE SPORT THAT'S NOT BASEBALL: "Probably football, because I like to watch it with
my dad!'
ATHLETE YOU ADMIRE: "I kind of look at Evan Longoria as a role model. He keeps his head
up, wasn't from a big college (Long Beach State), he's from a small school, so that gives me
FAVORITE PHONE APP: "Probably ESPN SportsCenter. I just like to keep up on the major teams'."
FAVORITE SUBJECT IN SCHOOL: "Math. I'm good with numbers. I'm not the best reader in the
world, but I like math. It's easy to me'."


COACH: Trey Hill
LAST YEAR: 11-14, district runner-up; lost in
regional quarterfinal
KEY RETURNERS: OF Tony Lalonde, Sr.; UT-P
Corey Omar, Sr.; 2B-P Brad Roberts, Sr.; P-UT
Will Nelson, So.
KEY LOSSES: P-IF Garrett Anderson; IF-P
Donovan Day; 1 B Austin Lambright.
OUTLOOK: The Bulldogs probably will not be
as good at the top of the lineup, but they figure
to be better overall, led by CF Lalonde (.360,
10 2Bs in 2013). DeSoto County doesn't have a
front-line pitcher such as the graduated Garrett
Anderson, but it probably has better depth. As
many as nine members of the 13-player roster
could pitch, led by sophomore Nelson. The
Bulldogs will have a sophomore-heavy roster
this season, but Hill thinks the Bulldogs have
talent if they can stay in the game mentally.


COACH: Bryan Beisner
LAST YEAR: 12-15, lost in district semifinal
KEY RETURNERS: OF Donovan Petrey,Jr.; P-IF
John Tufano, Sr.; C-P Grady Wells, Jr.
KEY LOSSES: P Kyle Klawonn, 1B Joe
Thompson, IF Nick Agosto, P Kyle Kemp.
OUTLOOK: Beisner likes the look of his team,
calling it the hardest-working group he's been
around since he's been at Port Charlotte. Petrey,
who has been a force at the top of the lineup,
will move down into a run-producing slot. In
his place at leadoff is junior Brad Baker, whom
Beisner believes has game-changing speed.
Beisner likes the look of his pitching with Wells
and Tufano at the top of the rotation, but he
thinks freshman Matt LePointe could be a
revelation, though that might take some time.


COACH: Bryant Sturz
LAST YEAR: 6-13-1 (split varsity/JV schedule)
Michael Lima, So.; IF C.J. Sterlace, So.
KEY LOSSES: P-SS Nick Fogerty, 1B-P Brandon
Muniz, P-UT Mike Romano, SS-P Roman
OUTLOOK:The Sharks expect some growing
pains in their first full season of varsity ball (and
their first season of district play). But they're
still young, with only three juniors, all of whom
are in their first season with the team. Sturz
expects sophomore Nick Lyle to develop into his
No. 1 pitcher.


COACH: Craig Faulkner
LAST YEAR: 29-3, Class 7A state champion
KEY RETURNERS: C-IF Michael Rivera, Sr.; IF
Dalton Guthrie, Sr.; C-OF Ryan Miller, Sr.
KEY LOSSES: P Cooper Hammond, P-1 B Nick
OUTLOOK: Can Venice manage an encore
with a third consecutive state championship?
The Indians will be led by senior catcher Mike
Rivera, who led the team in hitting (.528),
doubles (21) and RBIs (28). The team is senior
heavy with players such as Ryan Miller, Dalton
Guthrie and Brandon Elmy, all regulars from
last season's squad. Can the Indians find a
replacement for submarining reliever Cooper
Hammond though?

* SEMI-PRO FOOTBALL: Stingrays 16, Veterans 0

Veterans fall to Stingrays in opener

Florida Veterans quarterback Anthony Hargrove runs the ball during Saturday's game against the Florida (Fort Myers) Stingrays at
Franz Ross Park in Port Charlotte. The Stingrays won 16-0.


winning two of the three
heats on Saturday.
Sanchez's boat is in
third place after winning
twice on Friday.
"They're doing very
well this weekend," the
65-year-old Sanchez
said of Jeffers-Whalen.
"So we're chasing them,
which is fun."
It's fun just for Jeffers
and Whalen to be out on
the water. They made
the trip down just for the
weekend from upstate
New York the 60-year-
old Jeffers is from Sodus
and the 60-year-old
Whalen is from Syracuse.
So it's not just a race,
it's a chance to escape
Northeast weather.
"Do you know much
snow we left at home?"
Jeffers laughed.
"We left a blizzard

lot went wrong Saturday
night in the Florida
Veterans' season debut.
The United Football
Federation team fell 16-0
to the Florida Stingrays in
both clubs' season opener
at Franz Ross Park in Port
"Home opener, you
always want to start with
a bang," Veterans coach
Brian Speers said. "With
a win.
"Bottom line, in football
and in life, winners write
the history. The losers
don't. That's your goal,
and we didn't do that."
There were spe-
cial-teams problems early
on, electrical problems
late in the game, four
fumbles (one lost) and
penalties all night long.
Saturday's game came
to an end 3:43 before it
was supposed to when the
lights went out and the
game was called.
Earlier in the fourth
quarter the scoreboard
went out for a time. It was,
however, still operational
when the lights weren't.
The two teams com-
bined for 24 penalties
totaling 185 yards. A brawl
on an extra point late in
the game resulted in two
Stingrays and one Veteran
being ejected.
The Veterans held the
Stingrays to nine first
downs and one offensive
touchdown. Danny
Kachmar had two sacks,
one for a loss of 21 yards.
"The defense played a
(heck) of a game," Speers
said. They kept us in the

He improved as the game

Sanchez's son Jason
is in fifth place after
Saturday. His father
started him racing boats
when he was 8. He's

getting to know the crowd
at regattas as well.
"The cameradery is
one of the better parts of
the whole deal," he said.

"Everybody is real helpful

second half. Hargrove and
company twice got inside
the Stingrays' 10, only
to have penalties thwart
both drives.
"We moved the ball,"
Speers said. "And we kept
the defense fresh. I was
looking at the stats, and
we had more stats on
offense than we did on de-
fense. We kept the offense
on the field, we kept the
defense off the field."
Scoring in the first half
came as the result of two
attempted Veterans punts.
James Priddy fumbled
the snap on his first punt
attempt, recovering but
taking a loss on the play.
Reynaldo Hernandez

a sensational play on
Priddy's next punt at-
tempt, blocking the kick
and hanging onto the ball
for a touchdown.
Stingrays quarterback
Lonnie Young closed the
scoring with a 33-yard
run. It was during the
failed extra-point attempt
on Young's score that
emotions got out of hand.
Penalty flags and players
from both teams covered
the field and three players
were ejected.
"It was a great game
with the exception of the
fight," Speers said. "That's
what football is about.
Games like that."

"I was never competi-
tive until I started racing
Sailbirds," she said. "It's
great because it's not just
skill. Some of it is luck,
some is knowledge. They
say it's like chess, but the
board is moving. You get
to be outdoors, you get a
workout, you get to work
on your tan and go to
great parties."
No wonder why these
guys see each other all
the time.

One of my avocations is being the
family historian. I have taken on the
job quite willingly because it seems
to just draw me in when I am reading
or researching my family tree. I can
almost feel the person when I am
involved with searching historical
records and learning about their
lives. At this point the Powell family
tree has 1,358 people, 456 photos, 32
stories and 1,994 records primarily
census and other government.
I do most of my work in Ancestry.
com and currently have a couple of
hundred hints that I need to look at
to determine if they apply to one of
my ancestors. Not only do you get
names and information, in some
cases others have posted pictures
that you can add to your ancestor's
I have had many of my pictures
picked up by other families that are
linked by the same people. I have
also picked up wills and excerpts of
books written about them. You can
also pick up location where people
have lived and through the magic
of Google's street view you can even
see their home. I have even looked at
houses in London where my ances-
tors lived.
The other night while I was watch-
ing the Antiques Road Show, they
showed a photograph album that
had pictures of President Lincoln and
his vice president. Then it had all of
his cabinet and every senator. What
was really amazing is that all the
photographs were signed by the in-
dividuals. The album was valued for
tens of thousands of dollars. If I recall
correctly it was between $70,000-
$100,000 and primarily because of
Lincoln's signature. Apparently he
was not big at signing autographs.
Seeing this I was reminded that in
the volumes of pictures that I have of
my ancestors, there is one of Lincoln
and his son Todd. I immediately went
back and looked and the picture
is not signed. So much for instant
This picture came into the family
when it was presented to my great,

Dave Powell
great, grandfather, Jesse Thorn. He
was my father's father's mother's
father. His job was ticket agent
for three railroads in the Trenton
station. The photo was presented to
him when Lincoln made a stop at
the Trenton terminal. Upon inves-
tigation, it was a common thing for
politicians to hand out photos to be
remembered on Election Day.
Jesse Thorn only lived 44 years. He
died early of typhoid fever. In that
time he fathered eight children, one
of whom was my great grandmother.
I'll bet that he would be surprised
to know that the thing he is best
remembered for was having Lincoln
hand him his picture.

A little more than a week ago, I was
up early, driving Mom to Orlando. No,
we weren't going to Disney World. For
my mother, it was some place much
more magical.
We were headed only for a day -
to the week-long Assistive Technology
Industry Association's conference,
which has convened every January
in Orlando since 1999. The Assistive
Technology Association is a nonprofit
organization whose member includes
sellers, manufactures and providers
of assistive devices and services for
people with disabilities.
The conference presentations
on subjects ranging from accom-
modating employees with multiple
disabilities, using apps for electronic
devices such as iPads and iPhones
and training for teachers with devel-
opmentally disabled students.
My mother started to lose her
eyesight when she was 14 years old
due to a rare retinal condition -
experts have yet to decide whether it's
Stargardt disease, cone/rod dystrophy
or a combination of the two. Either
way, she's going to have to wait until
gene therapy improves or computer
chip eye implants do.
But, there are now a lot of assistive
technologies that can help her and
others with various disabilities that
range from pocket sized to large
screen TVs. Here's a very brief run
down of some of the gadgets we came
across while "shopping" for Mom.

MANO magnifier
Spanish for "hand," the MANO
magnifier is aptly named because it
will fit in the palm of your hand. Only
3.5 inches long and 2.9 inches wide,
it weighs less than 5 ounces and is
easily transported. MANO can magni-
fy from 2 to 20 times in a continuous
zoom and its LCD screen displays
in color or a high contrast black and
white. A built-in stand also allows
user to tilt the screen for a better
angle or view. MANO can also be held
directly above material being viewed
and can "capture" essentially take
a picture of up to three images.
Once the image has been taken, it can
also be magnified. The MANO can
also run continuously for more than
two hours on its lithium-ion battery
without having to be recharged. To
prevent the batteries from running
down, the MANO will automatically
shut itself off after three minutes

of not moving. If it begins to move
again, the device will return to the
active image.

After Shokz earphones
Instead of utilizing traditional
earbuds that insert into the ear or
pieces that fit over the ear, After
Shokz use bone conduction to bypass
the ear canal and reach the inner ear
by conducting sound through the
skull bone.
After Shokz essentially look like
regular headphones, a band wrapping
around the back of the head, but
instead of a mini speaker on each
side, there is a transducer which
rests on the cheekbone, closer to the
ear. According to After Shokz, "this
contact point allows the headphone
to send the vibrations from the cheek
bones to the inner ear, allowing
sound to reach the cochlea without
using the ear drum."
For people who have hearing loss
due to a cochlear problem, the head
phones will not work. However, peo-
ple with hearing loss due to conduc-
tion problems such as problems with
the ear canal, ear drum, middle ear
and its little bones malleus, incus
and stapes may benefit from using
After Shokz.
The headphones can be used with
Bluetooth and most MP3 players.
Since bone conduction does not
block outside sound, and also main-
tains sound clarity in noisy environ-
ments, After Shokz has received rave
reviews in several fitness publications
since they allow runners, for example,
to jog outside and be able to listen to
music without blocking the sound of

Ambutech iGlasses
Looking something like cataract
surgery glasses, these use ultrasound
to allow wearers to know there is
an object in their path by using soft
vibrations, which can be adjusted to
a person's preference. iGlasses can de-
tect objects up to three meters away.
The glasses intended use is to compli-
ment a white cane or service dog.
The glasses are simple to use put
them on like a normal pair of glasses
and hit the on button. A series of
beeps will let the wearer know how
charged the batteries are. The glasses
have UV protection and come avail-
able in clear or tinted.

Discovery may lead to new drugs for osteoporosis

Scientists at Washington University
School of Medicine in St. Louis
have discovered what appears to
be a potent stimulator of new bone
growth. The finding could lead to new
treatments for osteoporosis and other
diseases that occur when the body
doesn't make enough bone.
Osteoporosis affects 55 percent of
Americans age 50 and older. Of that
age group, one in three women and
one in 12 men are believed to have
osteoporosis, a condition responsible
for millions of fractures each year,
mostly involving the hips, wrist or
lower back vertebrae.
"We have been looking for new
ways to stimulate bone formation,"
said principal investigator Dr. Fanxin
Long. "The tools we already have are
very good at slowing the breakdown
of bone, but we need better ways to
stimulate new bone growth."
Studying mice, Long focused on a
pathway involved in bone formation.
The so-called WNT proteins carry
messages into cells and regulate em-
bryonic and adult tissue in mammals,
including humans. The WNT proteins
enter cells from the outside and then
can activate multiple pathways inside
those cells.
Long's team reports Jan. 30 in
the journal PLOS Genetics that a
specific member of the WNT family
of proteins dramatically enhances
bone formation, and it works through
a mechanism that has not been
well-studied in bone before.
It's called the mTOR pathway, and it
interprets a cell's surrounding envi-
ronment, and nutritional and energy
"By analyzing that information,
mTOR can determine whether a
cell should go into a mode to make
lots of stuff, like proteins or, in this
case, new bone," explained Long, a
professor of orthopedic surgery.
"Bone formation is an energetically
expensive process, so it makes sense
that some regulator would tell a cell
whether there is sufficient energy and
material to manufacture new bone."
Long and his colleagues studied
mice that made either normal levels
or an extra amount of WNT proteins.
They found that a particular WNT

protein, WNT7B, is a potent stim-
ulator of bone formation in mice.
Mice engineered to make additional
WNT7B manufactured new bone at
much higher rates than normal mice.
The researchers also found that the
protein created more bone by greatly
increasing the number of bone-man-
ufacturing cells in the mice. Our
bones are in a constant state of
flux as the number of bone-making
osteoblastt) cells fluctuates, while the
number of bone-degrading (osteo-
clast) cells also adjusts.
The WNT7B protein had no effect
on the total activity of bone-degrad-
ing osteoclasts but substantially
increased the number of bone-build-
ing osteoblast cells. And it did so by
stimulating the mTOR pathway.
"It's still early, but our finding
seems to point out that activating the
mTOR pathway may be a good way
to stimulate bone growth," said Long,
also a professor of medicine and of
developmental biology. "This is a new
twist because much of the current
focus in mTOR-related drug develop-
ment has been on compounds that
inhibit the pathway to shut down
cancer cells."
Drugs that inhibit the mTOR
pathway also are used to suppress the
immune response in patients under-
going organ transplants. Interestingly,
bone problems are common in those
"Many develop bone problems
within a few months of receiving
transplants because of the heavy
doses of immunosuppressors they
receive," Long explained. "Scientists
have not looked carefully at how
drugs used to prevent organ rejection
can have a detrimental effect on
bone, but our study would suggest
that if those drugs inhibit mTOR, they
could disrupt bone formation."
Next, Long plans to look more
deeply at the mechanism through
which the WNT proteins instruct
bone cells to activate mTOR and
stimulate bone growth. His goal is to
learn what happens farther along in
that pathway to create new bone. If
more specific targets can be identi-
fied in the bone-formation process,
drugs potentially could be developed
to stimulate bone formation in peo-
ple with osteoporosis without causing
unwanted side effects.

Alzheimer's disease: Later onset means slower progression

The greatest risk factor for
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is advanc-
ing age. By age 85, the likelihood of
developing the dreaded neurological
disorder is roughly 50 percent.
But researchers at the University
of California-San Diego School of
Medicine say AD hits hardest among
the "younger elderly" people in
their 60s and 70s who show faster
rates of brain tissue loss and cog-
nitive decline than AD patients 80
years and older.
The findings, reported online in
the journal PLOS One in 2012, have
profound implications for both diag-
nosing AD which currently afflicts
an estimated 5.6 million Americans,
a number projected to triple by 2050
- and efforts to find new treatments.
There's no cure for Alzheimer's and
existing therapies do not slow or stop
its progression.
"One of the key features for the
clinical determination of AD is its
relentless progressive course," said
Dr. Dominic Holland, a researcher at
the Department of Neurosciences at
UC-San Diego, who led the study and
the is the paper's first author.
"Patients typically show marked
deterioration year after year. If older
patients are not showing the same
deterioration from one year to the
next, doctors may be hesitant to
diagnose AD, and thus these patients
may not receive appropriate care,

which can be very important for
their quality of life."
Holland and colleagues used
imaging and biomarker data from
participants in the Alzheimer's
Disease Neuroimaging Initiative, a
multi-institution effort coordinated
at UC San Diego. They examined 723
people, ages 65 to 90 years, who were
categorized as either cognitively
normal, with mild cognitive impair-
ment (an intermediate stage between
normal, age-related cognitive decline
and dementia) or suffering from
full-blown AD.
"We found that younger elderly
show higher rates of cognitive
decline and faster rates of tissue loss
in brain regions that are vulnerable
during the early stages of AD," said
Holland. "Additionally, cerebrospinal
fluid biomarker levels indicate a
greater disease burden in younger
than in older individuals."
Holland said it's not clear why AD
is more aggressive among younger
"It may be that patients who show
onset of dementia at an older age,
and are declining slowly, have been
declining at that rate for a long time,"
said senior author Dr. Linda McEvoy,
associate professor of radiology. "But
because of cognitive reserve or other
still-unknown factors that provide
'resistance' against brain damage,
clinical symptoms do not manifest
till later age."
Another possibility, according to
Holland, is that older patients may

be suffering from mixed dementia -
a combination of AD pathology and
other neurological conditions. These
patients might withstand the effects
of AD until other adverse factors,
such as brain lesions caused by cere-
brovascular disease, take hold. At the
moment, AD can only be diagnosed
definitively by an autopsy.
"So we do not yet know the under-
lying neuropathology of participants
in this study," Holland said.
Clinical trials to find new treat-
ments for AD may be impacted by
the differing rates, researchers said.
"Our results show that if clinical
trials of candidate therapies predom-
inately enroll older elderly, who show

slower rates of change over time, the
ability of a therapy to successfully
slow disease progression may not be
recognized, leading to failure of the
clinical trial," said Holland. "Thus,
it's critical to take into account age
as a factor when enrolling subjects
for AD clinical trials."
The obvious downside of the find-
ings is that younger patients with AD
lose more of their productive years to
the disease, Holland noted.
"The good news in all of this is
that our results indicate those who
survive into the later years before
showing symptoms of AD will
experience a less aggressive form of
the disease."

Flush those colonoscopy fears


She couldn't tell her mom that
something was wrong because it was
way too embarrassing.
She didn't even like to walk down
the toilet paper aisle at the grocery
So when Danielle Ripley-Burgess,
30, of Lee's Summit, Mo., was in
junior high school and began finding
blood in the toilet after going to the
bathroom, "I didn't say anything
about it for a long, long time. I was
When she finally did, she and her
mom, at first, did their own research
on the Internet and figured that
because Danielle was so young, the
problem had to be something benign,
like hemorrhoids.
Just a few weeks after her 17th
birthday in 2001 she was diagnosed
with stage 3 colon cancer, going from
prom plans to hospital stays in the
blink of an eye.
Today, at 30, she's a wife and
mother running a marketing firm -
Semicolon Communications, wink,
wink and doing what she can to
get people talking about what she
once feared.
She's not above using props, either.
Big ones. In early December she
arranged to have a 40-foot crawl-
through model of a colon trucked
into town.
The message? Being afraid to talk
about what happens in the bathroom
could kill you.
Colorectal cancer is the sec-
ond-most deadly cancer, but the
majority of cases are preventable
with the use of a common screening
procedure called a colonoscopy.
Precancerous growths found during
a colonoscopy recommended ev-
ery 10 years beginning at 50 can be
removed on the spot. That's import-
ant because those growths, or polyps,
can stick around in your colon for
years and become full-blown cancer.
"This is the only situation in all
of medicine where the test used to
screen for a cancer is also the method
for preventing that same cancer,"
said Larry Geier, a genetics oncologist
at the University of Kansas Cancer
Center and one of Ripley-Burgess'
"In all other situations mammo-
gram, Pap smear the screening test
may be effective for early detection

rC I I-'H '_.,I'..
Colon cancer survivor Danielle Ripley-Burgess, of Lee's Summit, Mo., supports an organization that takes an educational traveling exhibit about
the disease. It features a 40-foot-long model of a colon that young and old can crawl through, as seen Dec. 14,2013, at New Summit Church in Lee's

but provides no ability to prevent the
cancer itself."
And yet, people fear the colonos-
copy. Statistics show that only half of
Americans older than 50 have ever
had one, or any other type of colorec-
tal cancer screening process.
The ick factor is high. Here are the
excuses patients give Geier.
*"I don't like the idea of a doctor
sticking a scope up my rectum. I am
too modest for that."
*1"I hear the preparation for the test
is very difficult, and I don't want to do
*"I am not having any symptoms,
therefore I don't have cancer."
*"I just don't have time for that."
"I have heard each of these reasons
too many times over the years, and
none of them are worth taking the
chance, or what I consider to be
playing 'Russian roulette' with your
colon," Geier said.

Dry needling by physical therapists ignites turf war with acupuncturists


McDevitt had tried everything -
physical therapy, exercise, acupunc-
ture to alleviate pain in his knees
and back.
At the suggestion of his physical
therapist, Sean Flannagan, he decid-
ed to try dry needling, a pain-relief
technique that uses ultra-thin needles
to poke into and stimulate muscle
"I had acupuncture before that was
supposed to heal something in my
back," McDevitt said. "But I needed
spinal manipulation, and I needed
some dry needling that actually
addressed some of the muscle restric-
tions that I had not a lack of energy
While the technique has been
approved by the state board that
oversees physical therapists, it has
ignited a turf war with acupuncturists
who say physical therapists don't have
enough training to use needles.
"This culture of casualness around
acupuncture is hurting people," said
Lloyd Wright, an acupuncturist and
traditional Chinese medicine practi-
tioner with Stellar Physical Medicine
in Scottsdale, Ariz.
But Flannagan, who has been using
dry needling to treat pain for five
years, said safety concerns are just
a way for acupuncturists to attempt
to shut out physical therapists from
using needles.
"They want the public to believe
they're the experts on needling," he
said. "No one profession owns any
modality. They share."
The Arizona Physical Therapy Board
started investigating the practice of
dry needling in 2012 and determined
late last year that it falls within the
scope of practice for physical ther-
apists. But the board decided that it
didn't have the authority under state
law to set any training standards.
"It's going to be up to the
Legislature to determine if they want
to alter the laws to see if they want
to add that authority," said Charles
Brown, executive director for the
board. "If they want this technique to
be singled out for initial competency
requirement, they can give that to
the board. Or they can leave the laws
alone, and it would be the status quo
that it's a technique within the scope
of practice."
Rep. Paul Boyer, R-Phoenix, vice
chairman of the House Health



vlu r iuIu

Lloyd Wright, an acupuncturist and traditional Chinese medicine practitioner with Stellar Physical Medicine, pictured Jan. 23, 2014, in Scottsdale,
Ariz., says the state needs to set standards for physical therapists who practice dry needling.

Committee, said board members
worked with legal advisers to deter-
mine if they could set these standards.
'All the board can do is follow the
language as it's written," Boyer said.
"The board believes they're within
their duties by adhering to the rule of
The House Health Committee
will be having meetings for various
stakeholders on the dry needling
issue in coming weeks and determine
a course of action, he said.
While Wright said he would like
to see some standards set for dry
needling, Flannagan said his training
already sets standards, including the
type of sanitary practices dry needling
requires. Flannagan took additional
training courses on dry needling
after finishing his doctor of physical
therapy degree.
"For me to even sit in these courses,
I had to have bachelor's and doctorate
degrees," Flannagan said.
He said acupuncturists and physical
therapists look at the body in different
ways and that patients will choose
which route is best for them.
"It's kind of a one-way turf battle,"
Flannagan said. "We don't want to
restrict acupuncture at all."

Brown said the Physical Therapy
Board would investigate individual
claims from patients to make sure
physical therapists are meeting a
standard of care and would follow
up with enforcement if needed. But
the board hasn't received any patient
complaints about dry needling, he
'All the complaints we've received
have been from sources other than
patients," he said.
Wright said his primary concern is
the patient, and ensuring a safe and
effective practice. He said the board
should set a minimum standard of
training for dry needling by involving
industry experts, including acupunc-
turists, in the process.
Acupuncturists need at least 1,850
hours of training, including 800 hours
of clinical experience, in order to
practice, according to the Arizona
Acupuncture Board of Examiners.
"Putting in needles is an invasive
procedure," Wright said. "When you
venture into piercing the skin, it's a
whole other realm."
Boyer said lawmakers would move
forward with legislation on dry
needling if the stakeholder meetings
determine it's necessary. He's already

Definition of dry needling, according to
Arizona Physical Therapy Association: a skilled
intervention performed by a physical therapist (PT)
that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the
skin and stimulate underlying neural, muscular and
connective tissues for the evaluation and manage-
ment of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement
Definition of acupuncture, according to
Arizona Acupuncture Board of Examiners:
puncturing the skin by thin, solid needles to reach
subcutaneous structures, stimulating the needles
to affect a positive therapeutic response at a distant
site and the use of adjunctive therapies.

met with physical therapists and
plans to meet with acupuncturists
"My hope is they can come to a
consensus on their own," he said.
For McDevitt, the controversy over
dry needling is more than just a turf
war and what may happen in the
Arizona Legislature: It's about se-
lecting the right treatment so he can
continue teaching and playing golf.
"I don't want someone telling me
what's best for my family or myself,"
he said.

Getting in to see a doctor takes time a lot of time, it turns out


Need to see a doctor? Get ready to
A survey of physician practices in
15 metropolitan areas last year found
that the average wait time for a new
patient to see a physician in five
medical specialties was 18.5 days.
Wait times in the Washington area
were slightly better than average:
17.8 days across all specialties. That
was better than Boston, where the
average wait across the five special-
ties was 45.4 days, but not nearly as
good as Los Angeles at 12.2 days. The
wait to get an appointment with a
family doctor in the District was just
14 days, down from 30 days in 2009;
but to see a cardiologist, the report
said, it would take 32 days on aver-
age, nearly twice as long as in 2009.
The specialties surveyed were
cardiology, orthopedic surgery,
dermatology, obstetrics-gynecology
and family practice.

is creating a significant access prob-
lem," said Travis Singleton, senior
vice president of Merritt Hawkins,
which conducted the survey. The
Texas-based consulting firm spoke
with 1,399 medical offices between
June and November of 2013 before
the new federal health law expand-
ed coverage in the five areas of
Researchers called the practices
and asked for the first available ap-
pointment for a new patient needing
routine care, such as a heart checkup
or a well-woman visit.
The longest waits generally were in
Boston, where new patients waited
an average of 72 days to see a derma-
tologist and 66 days to see a family
doctor. The shortest waits were in
Dallas, where the average was 10.2
days for all specialties, with just five
days to see a family doctor.
Boston also had the highest doc-
tor-to-population ratio of the 15
metropolitan areas: 450 per 100,000
people; NewYork had 344 doctors
and Washington 320 per 100,000, the
report said. The average for the entire
country is 226 doctors per 100,000
The good news is that wait times
decreased overall, down from an
average of 20.4 days in 2009 and 20.9
days in 2004. Singleton attributed
the improvement to practices'
employing more midlevel providers
such as nurse practitioners, better

Eggs in moderation are nutritious and delicious


By now, it is widely known that the
Big Cholesterol Scare of the 1980s was
largely unjustified. Even the American
Heart Association has revised its egg
consumption guidelines to allow them,
in moderation, in a healthy diet.
Eggs prepared in a wholesome
manner are a nutritious, versatile and
inexpensive food that can be served at
any meal. If your doctor instructed you
to shun eggs, then by all means, follow
his or her advice. We are, of course,
talking about hen eggs, not those of
other birds, fish, reptiles, or amphibi-
ans. (Know anyone who had poached
toad eggs for breakfast this morning?)
Only 27 percent of the fat in an egg is
saturated fat (the bad guy). It contains
good fat as well. Because the egg is the
foundation of a life in a nutshell (pun
intended), it is therefore packed with
nutrients, including all the essential
amino acids, quality protein, many
important vitamins, minerals, and
One large egg has only 78 calories.
However, frying, adding cheese, cream,
butter, or meat to an egg dish, or
eating multiple eggs in one day, dra-
matically raises the number of calories
and fat and turns this nutrition-dense
food into a suicide bomb. Mindful of
the fact that eggs are also "hidden" in
numerous desserts, appetizers, and
processed food, we need to watch
what and how much we eat.
Buy only refrigerated eggs and
immediately store them in the fridge

Judy E. Buss
at home. Cracked ones should not be
used. Before buying, check each egg
on all sides. There is no difference
between brown or white eggs nutri-
tionally or in taste.
Prepared in advance, hard-cooked
eggs can keep (refrigerated) for up to
a week and are a convenient solution
for busy people! Egg dishes are ut-
terly delicious and easy to cook; you
don't even need a diploma from the
Culinary Institute of America. If you
are on speaking terms with eggs, then
here are some easy, quick-to-make,
wholesome egg dishes enjoy!

They may be ugly, but raisins have some beautiful health benefits


Raisins have been revered since
ancient times. Grapes were dried into
tiny wrinkled gems as early as 2,000
BC, when they were eaten and used as
decorations during feasts and reli-
gious ceremonies, as well as utilized
for barter currency and prizes during
sporting events by the Romans.
Produced worldwide today,
California is the largest producer, trac-
ing back to 1873 when a determined
grape grower took his crop, which had
been "destroyed" by a heat wave, to
market and met instant success. The
rest is, indeed, history.
Unlike most dried fruits, and
perhaps a tribute to their popularity,
dried grapes are uniquely named
raisins. Grapes and raisins share the
scientific name, Vitus vinifera, though
the contrast between the shrunken,
wrinkly pellets surrounding their
sweet, chewy flesh, are quite the con-
trast to their plump, juicy counterpart.
Grape varieties, such as Thompson
seedless, Muscat, Sultana, and Malaga
are the most popular to dehydrate,
whether by sun or oven drying.
A one-quarter cup serving of raisins
delivers 6 percent DailyValue (DV,
based on 2,000 calories per day) of
satiating dietary fiber, 9 percent DV of
heart-healthy potassium, and a dose
of health protecting antioxidants,
though, because most raisins are
made from white grapes, they do

not contain a significant amount of
resveratrol, as do red grapes.
The health benefits of eating raisins
are many. Several new studies on
raisins and health were published in
the June 2013 Journal of Food Science.
One such study shows that raisins and
grapes eaten as an afternoon snack
led to a lower overall food intake
among children, compared to eating
other common snacks, like chips or
Not only did raisins give a feeling of
fullness, they also provided important
nutrients, such as potassium and iron.
Another study, a scientific review of
almost 80 studies, also published in
the journal, shows that raisins have
the potential to reduce risk of diabetes
and heart disease, and that raisin
consumption contributes to improved
blood glucose control for diabetics,
and also can be helpful for weight loss
and management.
Raisins are readily available year-
round, both in bulk and small pack-
ages. Choose richly colored, moist
raisins when you can hand select or
see them through the packaging. Store
them in an airtight container, and
refrigerate or freeze for longest life -
up to six months.
Pour a little hot water over rai-
sins to "plump" them before use.
Especially delicious in baked scones,
quick breads and muffins, raisins are
easily tossed onto hot or cold cereals,
yogurts and salads, as well as added to
pilafs and stuffing, trail mix, or eaten

Home monitoring a handy way to help control your blood pressure


There's an easy way to help reduce
hypertension, more commonly
known as high blood pressure: Start
monitoring at home. It's easy, inex-
pensive and effective.
"Blood pressure has to be mea-
sured regularly at home, not just
once in a while at a doctor's office;
that's not enough to tell if medi-
cation is working or not," said Dr.
Andrew Eisenhauer, a cardiologist
and associate professor at Harvard
Medical School.
High blood pressure occurs when
the force of blood pushing against
the blood vessel walls is constantly
too high. This injures the vessel
walls and forces the heart to work
harder, which increases the risk for
heart disease and stroke, the leading
causes of death in the United States.
Yet one in three adults in the U.S.
has high blood pressure, and half
don't have it under control.
Why is it so difficult? Some people
don't know they have high blood
pressure. Others who have been

diagnosed don't take their med-
ications. Those who do may not
have found an effective medication
regimen yet.
Some may need a different dose or
drug, and others may need take two
or three drugs. So experimentation
may be part of the process. That's
why home monitoring is important.
The success of home monitoring
is backed by a growing number of
studies, including one published in
2013 in The Journal of the American
Medical Association that found
72 percent of those doing home
monitoring had their blood pressure
under control, compared with 57
percent who received usual care
from their primary doctors.
Eisenhauer attributes the success
of home monitoring to two import-
ant factors:
1. Home monitoring helps you stay
on top of your condition better than
infrequent doctor visits.
"If you're paying more attention
to your blood pressure, you'll know
when it's elevated, and you'll be
more likely to ask your doctor for
adjustments in medications," he

2. Home monitoring encourages
patients to become partners in the
management of their blood pressure.
"That means they're more likely to
do the other things they need to do
in order to control blood pressure,
like exercise and reduce salt intake,"
Eisenhauer explained.
Blood pressure is measured in
millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) and
expressed as two numbers, systolic
pressure (the first or "top" number)
and diastolic pressure (the second
or "lower" number). If you go above
the threshold on just one number,
you fall into the higher category,
so if you have (say) 130/79, you're
You can buy a good home blood
pressure monitor at a pharmacy or
online merchant for anywhere from
$50 to $100. Ask if your insurance
company will cover the cost. A few
things to look for:
1. An automatic monitor that
doesn't require a stethoscope (it's
easier to use).
2. A monitor that takes the blood
pressure reading using a cuff that fits

around the upper arm, not the wrist.
3. A readout large enough for you
to see.
4. A seal from an organiza-
tion such as the Association for
the Advancement of Medical
Instrumentation (AAMI).
You should also ask your doctor,
nurse, or pharmacist for help cali-
brating your monitor and learning
how to use it.
How often should you check?
Twice a day for a week, at first. The
best times are early in the morning
(before you have taken any blood
pressure medications) and again in
the evening. After a week, ask your
doctor how often you should do it.
"Don't get too compulsive because
you can drive yourself crazy with
numbers you believe are too high,
and it can create unnecessary anxi-
ety," warned Eisenhauer. "It's going
to be elevated at first, and afterward
treatment it will come down."
Just remember that home moni-
toring is not a substitute for regular
physician check-ups, especially for
patients with poorly controlled blood

Fight worries over food additives with a healthy diet


Q: Do synthetic dyes, flavors and
preservatives make the symptoms
of attention deficit hyperactivity
disorder (ADHD) worse?
A: There is little agreement on how
such additives might contribute to
ADHD symptoms in children. Many
studies on this issue are either small
or flawed.
Some well-designed studies have
shown a mild increase in hyperactiv-
ity in some children who consume
these additives. But authors caution
that relatively few children are
particularly vulnerable to the effects
of artificial additives. They also point
out that it's hard to determine which
children are susceptible.
Worried about your children? Try
to avoid major sources of artificial
colors and additives. Limit candy,
junk food, brightly colored cereals,
fruit drinks and soda. See if symp-
toms improve after a few weeks.
But keep in mind, it's very hard to
tell. Consider this:

Researchers studied boys, age 5 to
7. Their mothers believed they were
sensitive to sugar.
The researchers told the moth-
ers their sons would be randomly
assigned to one of two groups. One
group would receive a high dose of
sugar. The other group would get a
sugar substitute. In reality, all the
boys received the sugar substitute.
Mothers who thought their sons
had a large amount of sugar reported
that their child's behavior was signifi-
cantly more hyperactive afterward.
Researchers concluded that parents'
expectations might change their
perception when it comes to food-
related behaviors.
For now, the consensus is that
children with ADHD should have the
same sensible diet recommended
for all children. Encourage fruits
and vegetables, whole grains and
healthy, unsaturated fats. Provide
good sources of protein. And avoid
unhealthy saturated and trans fats,
rapidly-digested carbs and fast food.
If your child is sensitive to ad-
ditives, a healthy diet may reduce


symptoms of ADHD.
Either way, your child can't lose.
Such a diet will certainly improve

overall health and nutrition. And it
sets the stage for a lifetime of good

Points to consider when joining a gym


Joining a gym is, in most cases, a
step toward improving your health.
Getting the most from your gym
experience requires proper plan-
ning, adequate preparation and an
attitude that fosters success.
First, determine your purpose for
joining a gym. Is it to get in shape,
lose weight, forge a more attractive
body, or something else? Be sure to
discuss your decision to improve
your fitness or health with your
With your purpose in mind, visit
a number of gyms to determine the
best one for you. The one you select
should be favorable to your sched-
ule, should be affordable and should
provide the equipment and other
services required to help you reach
your goal.
Your first few days at the gym are
important ones. Normally, you will
be given a tour of the facility and be
introduced to the various pieces of
equipment. Also, a training program
will be established for you. This
program is vital to your success and
should not be taken lightly.
Some gyms will create a program
for you that is based on a standard
template. Such a program often
lacks the personal touch that can
help to make it an effective one. To
improve your chances for success,
it is important that you secure a
personalized" training program.
Some gyms will assign you a
temporary personal trainer. He or
she will work with you until you are
comfortable using the equipment.
From that point on, you are basical-
ly on your own.
In such a situation, it would be to
your advantage to secure the ser-
vices of a certified personal trainer
who is capable of creating the
correct program for you and guiding
you towards success. In many cases,
a few paid sessions are all you would
really need. Once you become
familiar with the program you can
continue training on your own.
As you strive to reach your goal,
keep the following in mind: Train
three or more times each week, each
session should be 45 minutes or
longer and should include a variety
of activities. Be patient; train to
acquire results progressively and
consider safety.
Success at the gym will depend

Good dental health is vital, beginning in infancy

Johanna Evers, 6, has her teeth checked by Dr. Rosie Roldan, director of the Pediatric Dental

Johanna Evers, 6, has a routine
each morning and night: She brush-
es her teeth, flosses and rinses with
fluoridated mouthwash.
She also has been visiting a dentist
for twice-yearly cleaning since she
was 2.
"I'm thinking of my daughter's
future," said her mother, Brigid
McKeon, 43, who takes Johanna to
Miami Children's Hospital's Pediatric
Dental Center in Doral, Fla. "I want
her to be able to carry it on when
she gets older and has her own
Dental hygiene is a vital part of
overall health, dentists and doc-
tors say. According to the Surgeon
General's Report on Oral Health in
America, oral diseases and disorders
affect health and wellbeing through-
out one's life,
In fact, a research study in
which doctors at the University of
Miami Miller School of Medicine
participated has linked periodon-
tal (gum) disease to a heightened
risk of heart attack and stroke. Other
research has linked poor dental
health to Alzheimer's disease.
It all points to the importance
of brushing, flossing and visiting a
dentist regularly, starting in infancy.
"Cavities can happen as early as
nine months of age," said Dr. Rosie
Roldan, director of the Pediatric
Dental Center at Miami Children's
Hospital and director of its pediatric
dental residency program. "The
teeth start erupting at six months,
so they haven't been in the mouth
three months before we can start
seeing cavities."
Roldan advises parents to bring
their children to the dentist begin-
ning at 12 months, and every six
months after that. Parents should
also ensure that their children's
teeth are brushed twice a day, as
soon as the first tooth appears. That
creates a habit, so children grow up
to not be resistant to brushing.
"Prevention is key," Roldan said.
"We want to see them early, teach
about properly brushing teeth and
give fluoride supplementation to get
fluoride incorporated into the teeth,
if needed."
Baby teeth are space holders for
permanent teeth. They aid in speech
development and are necessary for
chewing. Aesthetically, they also
play a key role, she said.
"A lot of kids know exactly how
they look and how they smile,"
Roldan said. "And it's important
to develop the self-esteem of the
Parents need to be aware that an
enemy is brewing in bacteria that
develops in the mouth, and thrives
during the night when the saliva is
"If the last thing you eat is sugar,
which is what bacteria live on, the
bacteria will use that medium to
grow and produce acid," Roldan
said. "They'll have a party on your
teeth every night if you don't brush."
When very young children develop
dental problems, they can wind up
in the operating room. Roldan said
her center sees 700 patients in the
operating room for dental work each
year. The majority are under 4.
Children can even require root
canals and extractions.

In the worst case, when problems
are left untreated, an abscess, or
accumulation of pus, can result. The
pus can migrate and move to the
brain or eyes, leading to a periorbit-
al (eye) infection, or a brain abscess,
which can be potentially fatal.
For adults, health risks associated
with oral health are particularly
Researchers from the University
of Central Lancashire in the United
Kingdom last year found that people
with poor oral hygiene or gum
disease could be at higher risk of
developing Alzheimer's, compared
with those who have healthy teeth.
The researchers discovered the
presence of a bacterium called
Porphyromonas gingivalis in the
brains of patients who had dementia
when they were alive. The bacteria
are usually associated with chronic
periodontal (gum) disease.
Earlier research, conducted
by New York University in 2010,
revealed long-term evidence that
linked gum inflammation and
Alzheimer's disease, finding that
gum disease could increase the risk
of cognitive dysfunction.
Having healthy gums can also be
good for your heart, new research
Researchers at Columbia
University's Mailman School of
Public Health and the University of
Miami Miller School of Medicine
have found that periodontal disease
is associated with greater thickness
of the arterial wall.
That means possibly greater risk
of atherosclerosis and greater risk
of heart disease and stroke, said
Dr. Tatjana Rundek, professor of
Neurology and Vice Chair, Clinical
Translational Research in Neurology,
at the University of Miami Miller
School of Medicine.
Dentists can determine the
presence of periodontal disease,
she said, by probing the depths of
pockets in the gums.
Rundek said that researchers also
found for the first time late last
year that as gum health improves,
atherosclerosis also improves.
Atherosclerosis, or the narrowing of
arteries through build-up of plaque,
is a major risk factor for heart
disease, stroke or death. Rundek
participated in conducting the
research; the principal investigator
was Dr. Moise Desvarieux, profes-
sor of epidemiology at Columbia
"Intervention, even brushing your
teeth, can reduce atherosclerosis,"
Rundek said. "So you reduce the
load of bacteria and reduce pocket
depths and reduce periodontal
More research on the link between
atherosclerosis is under way in a
clinical trial at Columbia, as doctors
continue to explore the connections
between oral health and overall
"The advice is to take good care
of your teeth. Oral health is really
important, because this is the first
time we have proof that there is a
link between oral health and athero-
sclerosis," Rundek said. "So regular
checkups with a dentist, regular
teeth-cleaning, treating if periodon-
tal disease is present, and most of
all, brushing the teeth every day -
several times if possible, especially
for kids."

Cases of nicotine over-exposure from e-cigarettes on the rise

With electronic cigarettes gaining
popularity, officials nationwide are
seeing more cases of people exposed
to too much nicotine, not just from
inhaling but by spilling or swallowing
the liquid drug.
In Phoenix, Banner Good Samaritan
Poison & Drug Information Center re-
ceived 24 calls last year about nicotine
exposure from e-cigarettes, 13 of them
involving children. That's up from 10
cases four involving children in
In the first weeks of this year, the
center had received six calls, four
involving children.
"It is very concerning," said Dr.
Frank LoVecchio, the center's co-med-
ical director.
"The public has to be educated that
nicotine is very toxic and has been
associated with deaths," he said.
Symptoms of severe nicotine
exposure include nausea, excessive
salivation, abdominal pain, vomiting,
diarrhea, headache, dizziness and
irregular heartbeat, according to the
U.S. Centers for Disease Control and

Poison control centers nationwide
reported 438 cases of nicotine expo-
sure from electronic cigarettes in 2012,
the latest year that had data available,
according to the National Poison Data
System. That was up from 256 cases in
Almost half of the cases in each year
involved children ages 5 and younger.
LoVecchio said the cartridges in
refillable e-cigarettes hold nicotine
equivalent to about two packs of
cigarettes, an amount that can kill a
toddler who ingests it.
And it's not just swallowing the nic-
otine that concerns doctors; exposure
can occur through the skin as well due
to accidentally spilling the liquid from
containers, which are easily opened.
Dr. E Mazda Shirazi, medical
director of the Arizona Poison and
Drug Information Center, part of
the University of Arizona's College of
Pharmacy, said the devices need to be
dealt with like dangerous medication:
kept in locked medicine cabinets, out
of the reach of children.
"In a small kid, if they get into the
concentrated refills, they can have
similar effects of when (nicotine) is

used as a pesticide," Shirazi said.
LoVecchio said not a lot is known
about the dangers of e-cigarettes,
including the effects of secondhand
vapor and the amounts of ingredients
that can cause cancer.
And then there's the perception that
inhaling water vapor and nicotine,
a natural substance, makes using
e-cigarettes safe.
"We see that many times that the
public believes if something is natural
or comes from a plant that it shouldn't
be harmful," LoVecchio said.
He said the flavors offered for the
liquid nicotine refills "almost look like
an ice cream store" and are geared
toward young adults and children.
"What upsets us at the poison center
is that a lot of these liquids are not
horrid tasting, in fact they're just the
opposite, LoVecchio said. "They are
made to taste very good."
An Arizona law enacted last year
bans the sale of electronic cigarettes to
But Danny McGoldrick, vice
president of the Washington, D.C.-
based Campaign for Tobacco-Free
Kids, wants more government ac-
tion, including the Food and Drug

Administration regulating flavors and
requiring stores to keep the devices
behind counters.
"It's the policies we put in place that
can really make sure these products
are not sold and marketed to kids," he
Ray Story, founder and CEO of the
Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette
Association, said his industry group
would support regulations that
improve the safety of the devices, such
as requiring child-safety caps and
child-proof packaging.
"This is an adult product, so it
should be sold to adults in a manner
consistent to safety standards we are
accustomed to," he said.
Shirazi said the increase in parents
using e-cigarettes and bringing them
into their homes will result in more
cases of nicotine exposure among kids
in future years.
"It's just a matter of the mathemati-
cal growth that it's having," he said.
Shirazi also said he expects more
teenagers and adults to get hooked on
the devices to their detriment.
"Twenty years down the line they're
going to turn around and regret it, but
by then the damage is done," he said.

Fab Four Punched their ticket to ride with a North Amer-
E ican tour. Sit back and enjoy these moments from those
heady days when Beatlemania swept the U.S. and Canada.

.: Beatles special

Gets a little help...



The Beatles on "The Ed Sullivan Show" on Feb. 9. The group performed five songs, including "All My Loving," She Loves You" and "I
Saw Her Standing There."

Fab Four changed the way TV viewed rock'n' roll


If you were a grown-up on Feb. 9,1964, and within
reach of a television set, you might well have tuned
to CBS to watch "The Ed Sullivan Show."After all, the
competition was "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of
Color"on NBC and a short-lived Western on ABC called
"The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters."
Besides, maybe you were curious about this new
singing group that was creating such a furor. Or maybe
your kids were making you.
Because if you were under 18, old enough to know
the difference and not facing some sort of reprehen-
sible and totally unfair punishment from your parents,
you almost certainly did tune in to see the American
television debut of the Beatles.
The Fab Four had arrived in New Yorkjust two days
earlier to complete their incredibly rapid conquest of
America. Virtually unknown in this country before the
Dec. 26,1963, release of"l Want to Hold Your Hand,'
the Beatles flew in on the wings of that No. 1 single,
along with the No. 1 album "Meet the Beatles"and a
wave of teenage admiration that was quickly coined


Sure, America had seen its young people fall for
pop stars before. Frank Sinatra made the girls swoon
in the 1940s and Elvis Presley did it in the 1950s, but
Beatlemania coincided neatly with the baby boom,
giving it demographic clout that its predecessor fads
couldn't muster.
In 1964, the last boomers were being born and
the first ones were turning 18, and the Beatles'first
appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show"was when the
cohort showed the remarkable power of its remarkable
More than 70 million people watched the Feb. 9
episode, making it the most-watched television show
to that date. A second performance a week later rolled
in at No. 2. Those are all the more impressive when we
consider that most of the people who were dying to
watch the Beatles didn't have control of the family TV.
A trip to America certainly was inevitable for the
Beatles, but it was Sullivan who first brought the group
over for his popular Sunday variety show. A former
journalist who had started his New York-based series in
1948 as "The Toast of the Town," Sullivan had a keen eye
for talent and kept his show on top it was a top 10

Grohl was on his way to
rehearsals for a TV special
marking the 50th anni-
versary of the Beatles' U.S.
television debut on "The Ed
Sullivan Show"when the
panic set in.
"Suddenly it hit me:
Maybe I ought to listen to
the record again before we
rehearse it;'the founding
member of Nirvana and
Foo Fighters said of his
impending run-through of
"While My Guitar Gently
Weeps" with guitarists Joe
Walsh and Gary Clark Jr. for
"The Night That Changed
America: A Grammy Salute
to the Beatles."
The two-hour special will
air tonight, exactly half
century after the Fab Four's
appearance on Sullivan's
show kicked Beatlemania
into high gear on American
"Finally I thought, (forget)
it!" he said later, during a
short break between the

and his session with Nine
Inch Nails and Queens of
the Stone Age working up
their performance for the
Grammy Awards telecast.
"When I got there and sat
down at the drums and
started playing, all the fills
were there they just
came out (because) I've
been listening to this stuff
my whole life."
Grohl's moment of
clarity about the DNA-
deep resonance of the
Beatles'music in his life was
echoed repeatedly by the
musicians who perform in
the Beatles special, which
piggybacks on this year's
Grammy Awards show with

Petal power: Flower-buying basics for Valentine's Day

You wouldn't take her to a place called
Jalapenos Restaurant if she hates Mexican food,
right? And you wouldn't dream of buying her an
i / Angora sweater if she breaks out in hives at even
a glance at a rabbit correct?
l Then it follows that you wouldn't want to pres-
ent your sweetheart Valentine's flowers that make
her wince and look longingly at the garbage can.
PHOTO PROVIDED People's taste in flowers is incredibly personal,

and often intense, says Robbin Yelverton, owner
of Blumz byJRDesigns ( in Ferndale,
"When men come in to buy flowers for their
wives, we often play a game of 20 questions," says
Yelverton, a member of the Society of American
"We ask about her favorite color, and nine
times out of 10, they don't know," he says with a
laugh. "My favorite question is this: When she gets
dressed up to go out somewhere special, what
does she wear? Is your wife romantic and soft, or

does she like clean, contemporary lines? Is she
fun and artful? If she loves Birkenstocks and flan-
nel shirts, we'll go with a woodsy arrangement."
Yelverton says he starts with color,"a gut
response," then moves on to texture and the
all-important question: budget.
But no matter how much you have to spend,
you'll be a huge step ahead if you've picked up
a few visual cues. And taking two other simple
steps will help make everyValentine happy.

Save time in the kitchen prepare faster, tastier meals

ive to 10 minutes might not sound
like much, but when you're racing to
get dinner on the table, that can be
the difference between a relaxing family
meal and one gobbled down with hardly
a "How was your day?"When Consumer
Reports surveyed 3,435 of its subscrib-
ers about their experiences cooking
weeknight meals, almost half said they
wished the task took less time.
Consumer Reports offers these keys to
preparing faster, tastier meals:
Design for efficiency. If you're re-
modeling the kitchen, follow the design
basics, but tailor them to your family's
needs and routines. For example, the
National Kitchen & Bath Association's
guidelines call for kitchen walkways to
be at least 36 inches wide. "But for a
busy family, that passage needs to be
42 or even 48 inches wide for people to
move freely," says Paula Kennedy, a cer-
tified master kitchen and bath designer
in Seattle.
Similarly, the work triangle con-
necting the sink, fridge, and cooktop


- is still the baseline for maximum
efficiency. But in two-cook kitchens, it
often makes sense to have a second
triangle, maybe designed around an
island counter with a prep sink.
Storage is another customizable
design element. If you frequently buy in
bulk, you'll need a walk-in pantry or an
oversized wall cabinet that's at least
36 inches wide and 24 inches deep.
Pantry needs will be less for everyday
market shoppers, who will also get by
with a smaller refrigerator.
SThink ahead. One of the top cooking
gripes in Consumer Reports'survey was
that it takes too much planning. Making
double batches of recipes means one
less meal to think about. Stews work for
dinner, and pancakes can be frozen and
reheated for breakfast.

A slow cooker is handy for make-
ahead meals. Simply stir ingredients
together in the morning, and by night,
you'll have a hot, ready-to-serve meal.
Minimize maintenance. Some
materials and finishes are harder to care
for than others. Quartz countertops are
rivaling granite in part because they
don't require periodic sealing. Stainless
steel appliances remain popular, but if
fingerprints are a concern, you might
consider a new smudge-resistant finish,
such as GE's Slate.
As for flooring, vinyl held up best
in Consumer Reports'tests against
scratches and dents, plus the latest
designs mimic natural materials. If you
want real wood, opt for a factory finish,
which tends to last the longest.
Contain the clutter. Precious
minutes are lost looking for misplaced
items and uncluttering countertops so
that they can be used for meal prep.
In the kitchen, try to put things close
at hand, says Jennifer Lava of Austin,
Texas, a member of the National

Association of Professional Organizers.
For example, dishes and flatware
should be kept in a cabinet next to
the dishwasher; cutting boards and
sharp knives belong near the food prep
Creating a separate landing spot,
ideally just off the kitchen or along
its perimeter, for mail, school papers
and the like will help keep counters
clear. It's a good idea to keep a paper
shredder nearby for documents that
contain vital personal information.
Make it a family affair. Look for
ways to enlist other members of the
household. If kids are present, you
might designate a lower cabinet for
everyday dishes or flatware, allowing
young ones to help set the table. Or
look for age-appropriate food prep
tasks, such as washing vegetables.
As for the meal itself, don't underesti-
mate the importance of sit-down family
dinners. In one study, just an additional
3.5 minutes at mealtime was enough to
mitigate the risks of child obesity.

The most stressful and least stressful jobs


Where does your job
rank when it comes to the
level of stress you have to
manage daily? Do you have
to avoid land mines, save
people from raging fires or
formulate policies for public
and private companies? Or
are you on the low end of
the stress meter, working
as a tenured university
professor, dietitian or hair
CareerCast recently
released its annual top 10
most stressful and least
stressful occupations for
2014. Not making the top
of the list doesn't mean
your job isn't stressful. It
only means there are some

occupations that regularly
take a physical and emo-
tional toll on employees
- around the clock.
Take the No. 1 most
stressful job on the list:
enlisted military personnel.
The median salary is only
$28,840, but military men
and women do everything
from serving food in the
mess hall to dodging land
mines and bullets as they
try to keep the peace in
often hostile territories.
(Some of that hostile terri-
tory is right here at home,
which is why police officers
also make the top 10 most
stressful list.)
Military generals, who
have to come up with strat-
egies to keep enlisted men
and women both effective
and safe, come in at No. 2

on the most stressful list.
Median pay for the top
brass, however, is $196,300,
according to CareerCast.
The online employment
information service consid-
ered 11 factors in coming
up with its list, assigning
scores to each: the higher
the score, the more stressful
the job. A high score was
awarded if a particular
demand was a major part of
the job, fewer points were
awarded if the demand was
a small part of the job, and
no points were awarded
if that demand was not
normally required.
The study considered
travel, growth potential,
deadlines, working in the
public eye, competitiveness,
physical demands, environ-
mental conditions, hazards

encountered, own life at
risk, life of another risk and
meeting the public.
Following are the top 10
most stressful and top 10
least stressful jobs.

nel; 2 military general;

Look what I found! (941) 505-1624

On a buying trip

t's 5 a.m. and we're off to Mount Dora
to spend a day at Renninger's antique
One of our group was searching for
something I had never known about.
These are copper decorative boxes,
trays and such made by Craftsman
Studios. Art metals that were produced
by Craftsman Studios on the West
Coast are mostly desk items and vases.
Other copper items include kettles,
flower pots, and boxes, many with com-
pany logos. She did find a set of candle
holders as seen in the photo with this
article, but the price was over $200 and
she turned it down.
I'm a fan of Jameson Irish Whiskey
and I collect a few things related to
that brand. My first buy at Renninger's
was a water pitcher with a reproduc-
tion of John Jameson's signature that I
knew was rare. I couldn't believe I got it
for $5. This is easily worth $35 to $50.

A few minutes later, I found a beautiful
oak table top Victrola that I was able to
bargain down to $200. My son found
a few bird books with color prints of
Florida birds. Friends of ours collect
flamingo items, and I was able to find a
wonderful and a very gaudy ornate bowl
with flamingos standing in the center
Our next stop was a week later to
shop the outdoor market in Arcadia,
which is open the fourth Saturday of
every month. I immediately found
another table-top Victrola, which I
bought for parts at a very low price.
The reproducer sound box can sell
for up to $75, and this one was in Al
Our search for a Craftsman Studio
piece netted a copper inkwell with
the glass insert in good condition.
This cost, $45, and was considered a
One of our group found some

religious icons that appeared to be very
old and didn't seem to be reproduc-
tions. Another bought a pair of bright
green vaseline glass candlesticks for
$35 that I would have guessed would
be worth almost $100. Probably our
best find of the day.
This fair had several hundred dealers
and was mobbed with buyers. Between
the dozen or so antique shops and the
dealers set up outside, you can pretty
much find what you're searching for,
and often at bargain prices. Arcadia is
my favorite place to shop for collect-
ibles in Southwest Florida.
Our final stop was History Park in
Punta Gorda (second Sunday each
month all year), where you'll find about
60 dealers during the winter season.
I bought a 1950s card dealer. Drop in
your deck of cards and turn the handle
and it spits out one card at a time to
the four sides of a table until all 52


cards are dealt. It works and never

up to Sarasota and Ellenton.

Eight ways to work out without working out


Here's an unexpected
health role model: The
Amish. Despite a diet high
in meat, pie, sugar, and
fat, obesity is practically
non-existent in this tradi-
tional agricultural com-
munity which shuns
technology, including
electricity and cars. And
not only are the Amish
able to lose weight without
exercise, but they also
boast lower cancer rates
than the rest of the U.S.

So what's their stay-fit
secret? The answer is
NEAT. And no, this doesn't
mean that they stay
thin by being tidy. NEAT
stands for nonexercise
activity thermogenesis, or
everyday movement that
doesn't include scheduled
exercise. Consider the
simple act of walking:
Amish women take about
14,000 steps per day,
and Amish men average
18,000 which works out
to seven to nine miles! To
put this into perspective,
the average American

takes about 5,000 steps
per day.
But don't worry you
don't have to live like the
Amish to lose weight. In
his new book The Exercise
Cure, Jordan D. Metzl, M.D.,
explains how exercise
is the best medicine for
dozens of health problems
(and often better than an
actual prescription). "All
you have to do is stand up
and move to guarantee
yourself a healthier and
longer life," says Metzl.
Here are some smart ideas
from his book to help you

raise your daily activity
level with very little extra
1. Meet face-to-face
Email and phones have
made most of our jobs as
sedentary as possible you
can get nearly all of your
work done with the push
of a few buttons. Making
the effort to actually walk
down to your coworker to
get you questions answered
is a simple way to get
more active at the office.
You'll burn more calories,
and an in-person convo is
often more efficient than
trying to hash things out
via email.
2. It's called a mobile
phone for a reason
Gone are the days of
corded phones, and even
computers have been
released from the confines
of their desks. So why do
we still tether ourselves to
chairs and offices? Next
time you're on the phone,
take it as an opportunity
to take a walk, or at least
stand. Using a laptop?
Take every chance you get
to pick it up and switch
3. Schedule
Do you leave work
feeling like you shrank?
Your posture might be
to blame, since your
ligaments and soft tissues
deform after holding a
position for 20 minutes.
Fight the tendency to
stay slumped over your
keyboard with a simple
egg timer. Set it for 20
minutes and when it goes
off, take a one-minute
break to stretch and

move around (repeat this
routine throughout the
day). Stretching, standing,
or taking a short walk to
the end of the hall can not
only improve your pos-
ture, but it'll also increase
your NEAT and help you
burn more calories.
4. There are hidden
workouts everywhere
Maybe you live too far
from your job to walk to
work, but that doesn't
mean you can't park at the
far end of the parking lot
or take the steps instead
of the stairs. These sound
like no-brainers, but every
single step counts. (How
do you think the Amish
walk eight miles every
day?) Another easy one:
skip a ride on the con-
veyor belt at the airport.
You're about to sit for at
least two to six hours, so
you should take whatever
opportunities for exercise
you can get!
5. Miss your stop on
Maybe your bus or sub-
way stop lands you right
on your doorstep. While
that's super convenient,
it's also robbing you of ex-
tra steps. Instead, take the
next stop and walk back
to your house or apart-
ment. It's probably only
an extra 10 or 15 minutes,
plus you'll get to explore
your neighborhood.
6. Walk and talk
Think about your last
few conversations: Where
were you? A coffee shop?
A restaurant? A board-
room? Regardless of the
answers, chances are you
were in the same place:
a chair. Sitting all day has
been linked to weight

gain and a host of other
health problems, so next
time you need to have a
discussion with a friend
or coworker, try walking
in the park or around
the block while you chat.
Maybe even schedule
your next meeting as a
walking meeting, as walk-
ing can help get blood -
and ideas flowing.
7. Put it out of reach
Do you keep your
filing cabinet and waste-
basket at arms reach?
Try moving them just
a little bit farther away,
so that you'll need to
move and stretch to use
them. Building in little
inefficiencies like this will
keep you from staying
perfectly still all day long.
Bonus: If you've been
sitting all morning, that
stretch to reach for your
stapler on the other end
of your desk will probably
feel pretty good.
8. Don't be a couch
The average American
watches TV for five
hours per day! That's five
hours of sitting on the
couch. That's five hours
of not moving a muscle.
You don't need to stop
watching TV all together,
of course, but you can
incorporate NEAT into
your TV time by using
commercials as opportu-
nities to get in miniwork-
outs. Do anything from
squats to simple stretches
- anything to keep you
from being completely
inactive. For more tips
on how to lose weight
and feel great simply by
exercising, pick up a copy
of The Exercise Cure.

Sonkers, cobblers and Maggie's drawers

My ex-spouse, John, has
a habit of popping up
with weird comments.
One conversation included
cobblers, sonkers and Mag-
gie's drawers!
As he's a Bostonian, I just
follow along, but I always
hightail it to the bookshelves
or Internet to look up what
he's yapping about, and always
glean something from his off-
the-wall thoughts.
Maggie's drawers is an old
Navy, Marine expression. It's
a red flag on a stick waved
to a shooter showing that he
missed his shot.
Of course, cobbler is a
maker of shoes as well as a
dessert made with seasonal
fruit. One works with leath-
er; cooks work with crusts.
(Although my crusts can look
like leather on occasion.)
Sonkers, also a cobbler pie,
is unique to North Carolina.
Haven't found out where that
word came from as of yet.
The Jammers basketball
league, totally free to all chil-
dren, is looking for sponsors
as it starts a new season.
My grandchild Armando,
now 14, played with the
Jammers several years ago
and has gone on to continue

basketball at middle school
winning numerous trophies
and awards. Call Lt. Joe King
at 941-575-5525 to become a
sponsor angel.
Thanks for reading! Have a
happy Valentine's Day.

W ith the NFL's Super Bowl
being fresh in our memo-
ries, most of us gathered
around a television somewhere to
take part in the longtime tradition
that involved not only the sport of
American football but watching
the excellent, expensive, television
As we watched over the last
256 games, where each team
played 16 games during the
17-week season. A lot of practice
and coordination resulted in two
teams being the best in their
respective conferences, and the
more dominant taking home the
coveted Vince Lombardi Trophy.
Teamwork being the key
factor in this game, as well as
many aspects of life. In kitchens
all over, the chef or executive
chef may get the spotlight, but
without his team he would be
an overworked, short on time,
mess in the kitchen.
The typical kitchen runs with

1 jar sliced dill pickles (For a sweet treat
you can use bread and butter pickles too)
1 cup of any beer, (if your at the station
use a non alcoholic beer)
2 cups flour
2 eggs
1 bottle (48 fl oz) pure Canola oil
1 Tbs. of your favorite seasoning (we use
Creole Seasoning)
Drain 1 jar pickles in colander. Whisk

the executive chef (the big
boss), a sous chef (the assistant
chef), a line cook or two, a
prep cook or two, and an expo
person to get the masterful
piece to your table looking like
something out of a magazine,
ultimately winning the game,
one customer at a time.
In the fire service, we work

2 ell 3rand I i:up beer in 'naiIll n inq
bowl. Mix flour and seasoning in separate
mixing bowl. Place hand full of pickles
in egg wash, coating them thoroughly.
Place coated pickle chips in flour mix
stirring them with a small spoon to coat
thoroughly. Remove chips from flour mix
and carefully drop them into preheated
oil. Cook 3-4 minutes total, turning occa-
sionally to prevent excess browning. Drain
on paper towels. Keep warm. For a special
sauce mix that tastes great mix 3 parts ranch
dressing, 1 12 parts horseradish sauce, 1 part
Dijon mustard. Mix thoroughly and dip chips,
it's yum yum good.

harmoniously as a team as
well, each with a different,
very important job that makes
a difference in winning the
game. At the company level, the
battalion chief is similar to the
head coach, and on the incident
scene he is the one calling the
shots. The officer in charge (OIC),
usually a captain, lieutenant or

master/senior firefighter, heads
up the crew or the on-field
team. This person typically
has the most experience and
education to perform this task.
The engineer or chauffeur/
driver is the person who mans
the truck and makes sure
the apparatus that we are on
performs as it's supposed to.
The nozzle man and backup are
the ones who get it done on the
engine and with the direction of
the OIC put the fire out.
On a truck company or a
squad/rescue company, there
are similar positions that work
together to achieve their task,
all working together like the
offense, defense and special
teams players of any NFL team.
You may have a job where
you work with a team, too, but
no matter what, teamwork is all


about brotherhood and a sense
of community to achieve a goal
and win the game.
Game time munchies are
always popular. Whether you're
at the station or in the living
room of your house with family
and friends to watch any big
game, fried pickles are quick and
easy. So whip up a batch, and if
nothing else enjoy good friends
and the success of teamwork.
And that's bringing the
firehouse home.

Apps, platforms, other tools add

to the live Olympics experience


The summer Olympic
Games in London herald-
ed two huge advance-
ments for fans across
the globe keeping track.
First, the sheer number
of viewers watching
through conventional
TV (217 million), via the web-
site and NBC and Comcast
apps (82.1 million unique
users), plus accessed video
streams viewed online
or through apps
(159.3 million), were
unprecedented in scope.
And then there was
the wide variety of apps:
shortcuts to follow your
favorite sport or athletes
in real time, apps to
outline marathon routes
or describe the history of
dirt bikes in the games.
In the two years since,
there doesn't appear to
have been a giant leap on
Sochi's tourism front, but
Comcast which owns
NBCUniversal is push-
ing a tempting menu of
watch-it-now choices for
the sporting events.
Its XfinityXl andX2
platforms offer more than
500 hours of live viewing
through the five NBCU
networks and the Live
Extra Site app available
onscreen for subscribers
but also workable on
mobile devices. Four
years ago in Vancouver,
a similar setup broadcast
90 hours.

More than 1,000 hours
of live streaming across
the 98 events is planned.
A feature similar to the
NFL's"Red Zone"is the
"Gold Zone," where the
day's highlights across
venues can be accessed
with a click of the remote.
Every gold medal final
will be available across
platforms, and if you're a
big curling fan, you can
see that, too.
New this time around:
Home users of the NBC
app need to authenticate
only once to watch live.
And NBC, with its other
networks (such as NBCSN,
MSNBC, USA Network,
CNBC) will allow Xl and
X2 subscribers to restart
some events that are
just finishing up live
A stroll through app
stores for iOS and Android
yields the expected lot:
among them, the Team
USA Pinsanity app for the
pin-collection obsessed,
AT&T's. ItsOurTime app
that allows users to follow
favorite sports or teams
via social media, as well
as the 2014Team USA
Road to Sochi App.
Some sports sites,
such as Bleacherreport.
corn, have come up with
games-centric apps.
Of course, there is an
official 2014
app, promising stream-
lined information on
results, getting tickets,
locating the Olympic or
ParaOlympic torch relay.

TJ's views on the Grammy show

i, loyal read-
ers. Since I have
checked over the
list of new releases and
have found nothing
eye-catching, or what I
would consider news-
worthy, I figured I would
write about my views
on this year's Grammy
Awards show.
The Grammy awards is
a show dedicated strictly
to music, and I find it
fascinating. I am in the
business of music and
all of my customers are
very passionate about
music, so I find it so hard
to believe that many of
the folks who stop by my
shop do NOT watch the
Grammy Awards. They say
they can no longer relate.
This year's show was
the 56th one and held
Jan. 26 in Los Angeles. The
Grammy's first started back
in 1959 to honor outstand-
ing achievements in music.
The award was originally
going to be called the
"Eddie" to honor Thomas
Edison, but they eventually
settled on the Gramophone
Award and then shortened
to Grammy.
I am a fan of just about
every type of music.
Some I like more than
others but music reaches
many people on many
different levels. This year's
show had many different
styles, from the opening
act that featured Beyonce
and her husband Jay-Z
to the closing act that
featured Trent Reznor
with Lindsay Buckingham
and the Queens of the
Stone Age.

What I found fasciat-
ing wvas the Ciowvd and
how they reacted to the
different performers.
As Americans we have
wanted to put some
of America's dark past
behind us and music
has helped heal some
of that. We can watch
an award show and see
Sir Paul McCartney and
Ringo Starr dancing and
singing along to a song
by the Imagine Dragons
(a rock band) featuring
Kendrick Lamar (a rap
artist) and then watch as
Jay-Z and John Legend
sing along with Willie
Nelson, Kris Kristofferson,
Merle Haggard and Blake
Shelton (all country
artists). It makes me feel
good about what has
been accomplished.
Many folks who stop by
my shop seem to be stuck
in their own style of mu-
sic and have no intention
of opening up to a new
style of music and really
give it a chance. I am not
much of a rap fan, but
watching Macklemore
and Ryan Lewis along
with Madonna sing while
Queen Latifah marries
34 couples during the
ceremony was amazing.
In years past, the show
seemed to be long and
drawn out, giving out
awards that many folks
didn't care about. I don't
want to seem callous, but
not many of us really care
who wins the award for
best new Tex-Mex song
recorded on Tuesdays
in the southern region
of Nebraska. I know this

show finally gives the
unsung the spotlight for
their 15 minutes of fame,
but people have just lost
This year's award show
finally gave the viewer
what they have wanted
for the longest time, a
four-hour concert with
just the top six or seven
awards handed out. My
20-year-old daughter,
Alicia, and I watched the
show. We agreed that
Katy Perry's show was
mesmerizing and a little
creepy. Pink's entrance on
the high wire while sing-
ing was very entertaining.
She was not as thrilled by
the reuniting of Paul and
Ringo as I was. I liked the
pairing of the newer artist
with an older artist: Daft
Punk, Pharrell with Stevie
Wonder, Trent Reznor
with Lindsay Buckingham,
Robin Thicke with
Chicago and Carole King
with Sara Bareilles. She
kept asking who these
old-timers were that the
younger artists had to
carry. Ugh. But after they
played a bit, she knew
the song and enjoyed the
so-called old-timers.
Many of the artists in
the audience have lasted
in the music business for
a very long time, and the
reason for that is talent.
They are all very talented
people who open up to
all style of music and
where music is headed.
If you close yourself


off to only one style of
music, you will just fade
away. I enjoyed watching
Steven Tyler try his hand
at singing an old Smokey
Robinson hit"You've
Really Got A Hold On
Me" while Smokey was
standing right next to
him. So many artists seem
to embrace the younger
artists and make great
music together and isn't
that what the music
award show should be
all about. Great artists ...
great music.
Thanks for a great
Grammy Award show this
year. If you didn't catch
it and have just stopped
watching it over the years
well it is time to give
it another chance and
maybe, just maybe you'll
find out that they still do
make great music out
Some major releases
this week are from Greg
Laswell, Susan Toney,
Dianne Reeves, Eric
Church, and Benedictines
of Mary Queen of
Apostles. Independent
releases are from Band
of Horses, Neil Finn,
Nina Persson and Steven

How to decorate a tiny bathroom


A teensy bathroom is
hard to design and the
smaller the space, the
more critical the details
need to be. But not to
worry, I have a few sugges-
tions for you.
Smaller toilets and sinks
are important fixtures
to consider for the small
space. The elongated
toilet bowls are consid-
ered more comfortable
by some, but rounded
bowls take up less space.
Get the round one for
the small bathroom. In
general, round-front toilets
extend 25 to 28 inches
from the wall. Elongated
toilets extend 29 to 31
inches. Because the toilet
sits opposite the door in

many smaller bathrooms,
a regular elongated toilet
can restrict the size of the
door or its swing. Compact
elongated bowls offer the
same comfort but don't
protrude as far. If the door
is still a problem or you
really want that elongated
toilet, consider installing a
sliding pocket door, if that
is possible.
Finding a small
bathroom sink is easy.
A wall-hung sink will
really save space or a
pedestal sink works too. A
corner sink is still another
space saving idea. Pay
attention, though, to the
size of the faucet before
you purchase it. Consult
with the experts you are
purchasing from to be
sure the size of the faucet
and the size of the sink
are compatible. You don't

want to have a faucet that
doesn't give you room for
your hands or one that
will spray water beyond
the sink.
Usually in a very, very
small bathroom, a tub
won't fit, but if you really
want a tub, they do come
in small sizes, so check
around. Showers, on the
other hand can be custom
made to almost any small
size. The code require-
ment for a shower is 32
inches minimum, just so
you know. Here again, an
angled shower might be
the answer when space is
A recessed cabinet in
the wall will save space
and make up for the lack
of vanity, if you choose a
pedestal or wall mounted
sink. Recessed shelves in
the wall also will afford

places for towels.
And, by the way, the
price for small fixtures
such as sinks and toilets
might be a bit higher
than standard size but not
Lighting is important
in any room but in
small rooms it is really
necessary for visually
expanding the space.
The layered look works
well. Recessed light in
the ceiling will create a
general and balanced
light in the room. Add to
that wall mounted lights
at the sink, around the
mirror. A wall-mounted
light on each side of the
mirror is much better than
one light over the top of
the mirror as the top light
will cast shadows on your
face. A light in the shower
is of course necessary, too.

too much!"from those who
grouse that the lionization
of the band and its music
has gone on long enough,
a sentiment that surfaced
in a number of critiques
of McCartney's and Starr's
performances for the
Grammy Awards show.
But to those for whom

there can never be an
overdose of Beatles
music in the world, it's
worth noting that the
show inspired the first
performance of the big-
gest hit of the Beatles'
hit-laden career, "Hey
Jude," by McCartney
and Starr together since
they recorded the song
in 1968, well after the
group had given up live
"That was incredible',"
said Was, known in music
circles for his laid-back
"That's cool" attitude,
which quickly vanished
upon witnessing a new
piece of Beatles history.
"It's the best thing I've
ever seen."
Although the Beatles
show was created and
rehearsed simultane-
ously with this year's
Grammy Awards ceremo-
ny, there were few if any
signs that the whirlwind
nature of the production
process was causing par-
ticipants to lose sight of
the gravity of the event
they were celebrating.

And even though va-

at the teen audience did

to do well, with producers

Pink filling turns an old-fashioned dessert into a sweet Valentine's Day treat



No one is certain who invented
the whoopie pie; folks in both
Pennsylvania Amish country and
Maine have claimed it. As for the
name, one theory is that it comes
from children saying "whoopie!"
upon finding the moist, chocolaty
sweets in their lunch pails. Your
kids can experience the same
glee after baking their own -
and with pink-tinted filling, the
pies will elicit cries of joy on
Valentine's Day.

Hands-on time: 30 minutes
Total time: 90 minutes
Makes: 18 pies
For the cakes:
2 cups flour
12 cup unsweetened cocoa

1 teaspoon baking soda
12 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
I egg
For the filling:
12 cup softened butter
11/2 cups confectioners'sugar
1 cup marshmallow creme
1 teaspoon vanilla
Red food coloring (optional)
1. Heat the oven to 350
degrees. Line two baking sheets
with parchment paper.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk
together the flour, cocoa powder,
baking soda, and salt. In a glass
measuring cup or small bowl,
stir together the buttermilk and
vanilla extract.
3. In a large bowl with a hand
mixer set at medium speed, beat
the butter and sugar until evenly

blended, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Add the egg, increase the speed
to high, and beat until smooth
and creamy, about 1 minute
4. Pour half the flour mixture
into the butter-sugar mixture,
and beat at medium speed until
combined. Add the buttermilk
mixture and continue beating
until just blended. Add the
remaining flour mixture and beat
5. Use a cookie scoop (see
"tools of the trade" below) or

spoon to place a heaping table-
spoon of batter on a prepared
cookie sheet. Add more mounds
of batter, evenly spacing them,
until there are nine on each sheet.
Slightly flatten each mound with
a spoon.
6. Bake the cakes one sheet at a
time for 10 minutes (they should
be moist and spongy). Let them
cool on the sheet for 2 minutes,
then carefully transfer them to a
rack to cool completely. Reline
the sheets and scoop, shape, and
bake the remaining batter.
7. Using an electric mixer at
medium-high speed, beat all
the filling ingredients except the
coloring in a medium bowl until
evenly blended, about 2 minutes.
If you want to give the filling a
Valentine hue, fold in drops of red
food coloring until the desired
tint is reached.
8.To make each pie, spoon and
spread a heaping tablespoon of

the filling onto the bottom of a
cake, then gently press another
cake on top.

With a cookie scoop, bakers
can neatly make uniform drop
cookies and cakes. The simple-
to-use gadget works just like its
ice-cream counterpart, enabling
you to measure and drop dough
with a squeeze of the handle.
Many scoops form a cookie
about the size of one made with
a tablespoon, but scoops are
also available in other sizes. You
can find them at cooking supply
stores ( offers a model
similar to the one shown for $13).

Personalize pies for Valentine's
Day by wrapping them in large
lollipop bags (available at craft
stores) and attaching a message.

First Yelverton encourages
people to walk into their
neighborhood florist and
avoid simply picking a set
arrangement online and
calling in a "traditional"
bouquet. Second, don't
wait until the last minute to
David Mark, owner of Los
Angeles-based Designs by

more on both points.
"You wouldn't run
to the grocery store on
Thanksgiving Day to buy
your turkey, right?" says
Mark, whose floral arrange-
ments have graced the
homes of several stars.
You'd get there far in
advance to get that quality

Give him a dozen roses,
Mark says, and he'll create
something that will make
a lasting impression, unlike
the typical display of red
roses pushed into a dull vase
with a little baby's breath.
If someone walks into his
shop and offers no direction
about a sweetheart's likes
and dislikes, Mark says he
looks at that as a challenge.
"Tell me what your
budget is, and I'll create
something bold and

beautiful;' he says. "When
my drivers walk into offices
and homes, everyone
stops and stares because

If you're sending flowers
to a loved one who isn't in
town, consider ordering
from a company like
ProFlowers, an e-commerce
company that sells products
shipped from growers.
ProFlowers offers a guar-
antee that your flowers will
stay fresh for at least seven
ProFlowers floral design
expert Kate Law says if
you're sending flowers to
your loved one, be it your
sweetheart or your mother,
consider little tips to help
you make your choice.
"What were her wedding

house brightly decorated or
neutral? What is her favorite

savvy, or sure what her style
is, go with classic flowers
like roses, bright tulips or
"Also, it may sound like
a cliche, but it truly is the
thought and experience
of receiving fresh flowers
that really counts" Law says.
"Flowers are a splurge item
most women feel guilty
about buying for them-
selves, so it's a treat when
they receive a bouquet
from a person they love."

Once you have that
spectacular bouquet in
hand, the next step is
making it last for more than
a few days. Designer Robbin
Yelverton, who has a
master's degree in horticul-
ture and teaches the art of
design in the Detroit area,
offers these tips:
If you're buying flowers
from the store, take a tip
from the pro."l tell florists

when they go to their sup-

of water and rake a finger
inside," he says, noting that

store, it's essential to look
at the water the flowers
are resting in to be sure it's
Be sure those blooms
are in good shape before
you bring them home. The
best way to ensure you
don't get lousy flowers is to
purchase them in advance.
"People assume flowers
don't last long, when in
fact, they often buy them in
bad shape, and they don't
treat them well from there"
If you're running into the
grocery store on Feb. 14,
the pickings are sure to be
SIf you're a "budding"
flower arranger and have

decided to buy blooms to
arrange for your sweetie,
the first thing to do with
those flowers is to recut
the ends, rinse the bacteria
off the stems, and be sure
you're putting them in a
spotless vase. Changing
the water every three
days will extend the life
of the flowers. When used
properly, flower food will
also preserve those blooms.
Location, location: Be
sure you keep them as cool
as possible, Yelverton says.
Even if you crank the heat
up to 80, keep them away
from heaters and away
from drafts.
If you're looking for
blooms that will last
for longer than a week,
Yelverton mentions a few
"workhorse" flowers that
have great staying power.
These include carnations,
daisies and Alstroemeria

Kinnear Charms on 'Rake'

FYI Televsion, Inc.
Keegan Deane (Greg Kinnear)
never takes the easy road on
"Rake," airing Thursday at 9 p.m.
on FOX. He is a man of excesses.
He drinks, gambles and wornm-
anizes so much that it is affect-
ing his life in detrimental ways.
He gets beaten up weekly by his
bookie's henchmen, is in trouble
with the IRS, and his family has
mixed feelings about him. But
he's also a charming and bril-
liant criminal-defense attorney.
The show is based on the
Australian hit series, but the
American version takes a few
different turns. "This character
actually came from a lot of late
night conversations I had with
Richard Roxburgh, who played
the Cleaver Greene character in
the Australian series'," says ex-
ecutive producer Peter Duncan.
"He had a friend at university
who was a brilliant guy, but every
Friday and Saturday he'd get into
a fight with someone, a physical
fight, and he would be beaten up.
He never understood how this
guy could be so brilliant and yet
his life so chaotic. And we, you
know, channeled the idea of this
character through many, many
late nights until a mutual friend
of ours, who's credited as a co cre-
ator of the Australian show, told
us a story about this man in Aus-
tralia. And because I used to be a
lawyer, we thought, 'Well, maybe
the criminal law is the way to
go with this thing: "So, we then
started evolving the characters,
Keegan d.,'if't conm
to understand th.iat
he himself is thb1
heart of his ov i I
problems. H.
thinks it's a

coincidence that all of the bad
things are happening to him.
"I don't think he has a great
self awareness of that,";' Kinnear
says. "It comes in fits and starts.
There have been moments over
the series we're on episode 10
right now where they've sur-
prised me, and there are mo-
ments where he has a little bit
of reflection about where he's at
on the map, but certainly, you
know, out of the gate, very little,
and that's probably true of most
people. I mean, self assessment
is a difficult thing, and for a guy
who has had probably as many
missed opportunities as Keegan
has had, you know, you would
think that maybe there would be
moments of that, but they come
kind of later in the season, but
out of the gate, no. Not a lot."
"In the writing of the charac-
ter,"' executive producer Peter To-
lan adds, "we talked to the writ-
ers about it and gave them the
image of Indiana Jones and run-
ning from that
giant ball, and a
this is a S
guy who ms

everywhere he turns, he's spin-
ning all these different plates,
and it's just a storm in every
direction, and he's just trying
to stay ahead of it all the time.
So, there's almost no time for
self reflection. He's just caught
in the middle of it and trying
to stay one step ahead of it."'
This character goes through
so many ups and downs it can
be an emotional roller coaster for
Kinnear. That's one of the rea-
sons he wanted to play Keegan.
"I was intrigued immediately
when I saw the show as to the
mess of that guy," Kinnear says,
"and, you know, that kind of ab-
solute lack of need for approval
is a hugely attractive thing, espe-
cially if you're an actor. Getting
to play a guy who's not necessar-
ily interested in what you think
was a really cool element for me.
But I don't know. There's prob-
ably not a lot of obvious simi-
larities in terms of the casting
of me to this role, but I liked it."
Keegan gets the cases no one
wants, and most of those come
from Ben Leon (John Ortiz),
his best friend since law school.
Scarlet (Necar Zadegan) is Ben's
wife and quite often the oppos-
ing council for Keegan's cases.
Then there's his trusty assistant
Leanne Zander (Tara Sum-
mers), who stays with
her boss because she's
in America illegally
and no one will hire
her if she leaves.
Maddy Deane (Mi-
randa Otto) is his
ex-wife and his ther-
apist did we men-
tion he's messed up?

"I loved the show,' Otto says
about the Australian version.
"I saw it at home. It was a very
clever kind of adult show, and
very intelligent. And I really en-
joyed that I enjoyed the word-
play. And I love the fact that
he was surrounded by all these
fabulous women who still really
loved him, no matter how many
bad things he did. And I thought
it was such a clever conceit to
have these strong women around
him. And it kind of gave him li-
cense to do all kinds of shocking
things. But, you know, overall
the main thing, to me, it just felt
like such an intelligent, funny
show, such a grown up show'

King Features Synd., Inc.

Q: Can you tell me
what Mark Steines has
been up to lately? I miss
seeing him every night on
"Entertainment Tonight."
-- Sara G., via email

A: Instead of seeing
Mark every night, now
you can see him for two
hours each morning.
Along with Cristina
Ferrare, Mark co-hosts
the Hallmark Channel's
"Home and Family Show"
every weekday morning
from 10e/9c. I spoke with
Mark recently about his
new hosting gig, and he
said he's having such a
great time on his new
show that it doesn't even
feel like work. According

to Mark: "I worked with
'ET' for 17 years, and I
was never this close to
people there because it's
just such a big operation,
and you feel like you get
lost in it. This is a small
show with a big heart.
And Hallmark believes
in us. We're the corner-
stone of their daytime
programming, and I
love it."
And each day Mark is
eager to discover what
that day's show will
bring. "I used to have to
go to the stars, now they
come to me. And our
show isn't really star-
based, in that regard. But
when they do come on,
we try to unmask that
celebrity. We take them
into the kitchen with us
or we'll do a DIY project
with them. We'll build
something. We'll make
something. It's always

what I really wanted to
do with celebrities, to see
the other side of them.
That's what I like about
this show."

Q: My sister-in-law told
me that Laura Linney
recently had a baby; I
didn't even know she was
pregnant! -- Janie F., via

A: Aside from Laura's
closest friends and family,
no one knew. Laura and
hubby Marc Schauer
welcomed a baby boy
named Bennett on Jan. 8.
It was the 49-year-old
actress's first child, and
also the best-kept secret
of 2013. Since this past
summer, she has kept
a low profile and never
presented an opportunity
to be photographed with
a baby bump. Congrats
to the new parents, and

Mark Steines

found with these guys
the very first night. We
sat down and had dinner
and it was just fluid,
and I think we just have
such a mutual respect
for these guys and girls
standing in front of
us and singing. It's a
really daunting thing.
I mean, I never forget
that. You know, they've
got no microphone, no
audience, no band, no
music, nothing, and they
stand in front of us and
sing. And all three of us
have so much respect
for that. So, you know, if
there's a fluidity about
the way we do what we
do, it's because we all
have a similar heart."

No. So, the customer
comes first was his credo
and he came up with it,
and he wanted to treat
everyone like guests that
entered his doors. And
that's one of the many
things that he brought
over there. And to this
day, whenever I walk into
a store, especially over
there, I'm very conscious
of the way they run
things. And the Brits, if
they're not feeling great,
they're not going to give
you a fake smile and
ask you about your day.
I went in there a couple
of times. And the way I
dress in real life, I went
in there with, like, a hat
on and glasses and stuff.
So, I was kind of under
the radar, but there were
a lot of double takes.
And then when I went
to go buy something,
I was really expecting
them to treat me well.
And unfortunately, I
think the one person who
hadn't seen the show
was helping me. She was
having a bad day."
