More to come

in District 13?

It may not be over until it's over.
It was a closer race than the head-
lines might suggest. Up the road in St.
Petersburg, a race to fill out the last months
^ ~of U.S. Congressman
A tk BillYoung's term in
District 13 drew an
embarrassing amount
(,"' I of out-of-state dollars.
'It is just possible
Swe will see a rematch
when the seat is open
for a full two-year
term this November.
Se re Until his death
Dere earlier this year,
DUNN-RANKIN Republican Bill
CHAIRMAN Young was a regularly
re-elected fixture. His
one-time aide and lobbyist, David Jolly,
won his party's nomination to run against
the Democratic challenger, Alex Sink.
Sink moved from her base east of Tampa
across the bay to Pinellas County and
St. Petersburg. A former head of Bank
America in Florida, Sink got her political
baptism when her husband Bill McBride
ran as the Democratic Party stan-
dard-bearer for governor. McBride once
headed the powerful statewide law firm of
Holland and Knight.
Sink was the rare Democrat to win
statewide election to the Florida cabinet
as the state's chief financial officer. She
followed up that experience to tread in
her husband's footsteps as the Democrats'
candidate for governor. She would have
been the first Democrat elected to that
office since Lawton Chiles, who won his
second term by defeating a young Jeb
Bush. No great stump speaker, Sink ran a
close race, but Rick Scott was able to pump
$70 million of his own money into the
campaign and win the governorship.
Sink's loss this week makes two squeak-
ers in a row. She may not have the stomach
to risk a third contest.
Jolly had a home-court advantage as
a St. Pete native. For some residents, the
import from across the bay, Sink, was seen
as "not one of us." As long as I can remem-
ber, there has been some tension between
the two communities that face each other
across Tampa Bay.
Sink had going for her both her
campaign experience and a network of
contacts made over the years. She proved
a good fundraiser, and was leading in the
polls and campaign fundraising early on.
The nature of the campaign quickly
changed. Before it was over, $11 million
had been spent. Of that, $9 million came
from out of state, as both national parties
attempted to make this a bellwether
The district leans slightly toward the
Republicans, with 42.5 percent of the regis-
tered voters, as opposed to 38.5 percent for
the Democrats. Almost 20 percent of the
district's voters are independents. By the
end of the race, Sink had closed the spread
from 4 percent to 2 percent.
In round figures, Jolly won by 3,500
votes. Looked at in terms of dollars
invested, the victory votes cost more than
$3,000 each. In terms of total votes cast,
$50 was paid out for every vote, including
those for the independent candidate, who
polled a little under 5 percent of the votes
cast. Despite all the TV ads and mailboxes
full of electioneering junk, a lot of voters
stayed home.
Despite all the money thrown at the
campaign and the visiting heavyweights
like Bill Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden,
and Republicans Rand Paul and Jeb Bush,
the turnout was not high. In the last gen-
eral election for Congress, BillYoung won
with 57 percent of the 329,347 votes cast.
As for a November race, there will be
plenty of people ready to point out that
a switch of 1 percent of the voters would
have made Sink the winner.

The Sun newspapers sponsor a monthly Roundtable discussion, featuring key members of the community, on topics of importance to Southwest Floridians.

Educators debate how tests

impact actual learning

Testing from its emotional impacts to
its importance in determining funding -
is a hot-button issue for local educators.
"If you're ever there (at
INSIDE a school) during FCAT
Educators eager to testing... watch the students
see assessment test who have failed the FCAT
*Seepage 12 repeatedly," DeSoto County
Schools Superintendent
Karyn Gary said. "They will faint, cry, vomit.
What are we doing to these kids?


"(Common Core) was an "The majority of

two things: reduce mobility profession because it is a

consistency from state to

at the end of the day,
they need to be able to
make a living too."
Karyn Gary,
DeSoto County School District

"We want our kids to read, write and
perform well... but I think, somewhere, what
we're trying to do just got lost."
Gary participated last week in a Sun
Roundtable on education. Also attending
were school superintendents from Charlotte
and Sarasota counties Doug Whittaker and
Lori White, respectively- and three mem-
bers of the public: Randy McLendon of Taking
Our Country Back; Keith Reester, previously a
school superintendent in New York state; and
AndyWing of Organizing for Action.



"The theme now is 'career in a
year' basically looking at
12 to 18 months for a degree....
It could elevate the status of
our technical centers, and it
would be a huge boost in the
state of Florida."
Lori White,
Sarasota County School District

While Roundtable participants voiced
plenty of concerns, they acknowledged
there are many good things happening
in area school systems.
Sarasota County School District
superintendent Lori White:"l visit
classrooms several times a week, and
I see some amazing things. There's
been a whole shift in how we teach,
students learning to collaborate and
use technology as a tool, and teachers
are learning every day how to use
these resources'."
Charlotte County Public Schools
superintendent Doug Whittaker: "I'm
in my 43rd year in this profession and
I love what I do in spite of the
frustrations that we deal with the
excitement of really being on the
threshold of really changing American
education for the better, and preparing
kids for jobs that don't even exist
today; it really is an exciting time'."
* Keith Reester, former superinten-
dent in the New York school system:
"I came here just before Hurricane
Charley, and it was tremendous how
the community can come together.
When I heard about the increasing
(Advance Placement) scores in Char-
lotte County, and in the amount of kids
graduating, those are the things we
need to be talking about'."

superintendent Karyn Gary: "There are
lots of good things going on in DeSoto
County. We're developing a choice K

Art takes center stage at Peace River fest


PUNTA GORDA Bronze sculptor
Bob Wilfong is taking everything in
during this, his second trip, to the
Peace River National Art Festival. As
a renowned patina artist who shows
his work in major galleries around
the country, as well as a Washington
state native, Wilfong is accustomed
to beauty. But Saturday's spectacular
backdrop in Laishley Park impresses
even his heightened sensibilities.

"Of all the shows I do, this is proba-
bly the nicest setting," he said. "There's
the Peace River, and the people are
relaxed, enjoying what is around."
ButWilfong also appreciates the
city sights, traveling the Punta Gorda
Pathways system on his bike when he's
not hoisting his sculptures. Yes, art
can be back-breaking work. Wilfong is
adept at mixing chemicals and heat to
create the peacock colors of his bronze
behemoths, some of which reach 800
pounds, and larger.
"The big one is on the truck; that's

why it's on the truck," he said, standing
next to "The Journey," an imposing
representation of life's eternal quest.
Wilfong's journey, in fact, has
taken many turns. From biologist to
buttoned-down banker to bronze,
the 66-year-old sculptor always has
followed his own path.
"It's hard to be an individual in the art
world. My work is well-received because
I am self-trained," he said. "I found out
this is what I'm really best at."

What happened to teaching
kids how to think?

'Pilots' take up precision challenge


Kal Reifsnyder began
flying remote-controlled
airplanes five years
ago. Two years later,
the Lake Placid resi-
dent competed in the
National Sportsman's
Championship, which
he won, in Muncie, Ind.
This year, he already has
qualified for the national
championships, to be
held in July in Muncie.
Not bad especially
since Kal is only 10 years
This weekend, Kal
and 23 other pilots
are competing in the
International Miniature
Aerobatic Club's
Southwest Florida
Aerobatic Challenge. The
Charlotte Sport Modelers
Society is playing host
to the two-day event at
its flying field at the RV
Griffin Reserve in DeSoto
County off Kings
Highway/County Road
769, just a bit past Port
"Kal first became
interested in flying
remote-control planes
when he was 3 years
old," his father, Tom
Reifsnyder, said. "He
would come to the
shows with me and go
home, and began to
practice on the comput-
er. Pretty soon he was
taking off and landing
them on his own using
the computer. In just
five years, he has already
advanced to the inter-
mediate class."
Pilots in five different
classes basic, sports-
man, intermediate,
advanced and unlim-
ited came from as
far as Tennessee, Ohio,
Michigan, Colorado and
Canada to attend the
show and showcase their
aerial skills.
All of the aircraft are
40 percent to scale of
regular planes that fly
in air shows around

With a wingspan of 10 feet, and sporting a 20-horsepower,
gas-operated engine, this Aero aircraft takes off to begin its
maneuvers at the event Saturday.

the world, according to
Dave Ortmayer, a CSMS
member and contest
director. The average
cost of the aircraft runs
about $7,000 to $10,000.
"The maneuvers
done here are basically
the same as pilots in
a regular air show," he
said. "All the planes have
a 20-horsepower, gas-op-
erated engine, a 10-foot
wingspan and 30-inch
propellers. Compare that
to the average lawnmow-
er that has a 6-horse-
power engine and a
20- or 22-inch blade, and
you can see how power-
ful these planes are."
Ortmayer said each
class is given a flight
pattern, and compet-
itors perform certain
maneuvers, rolls, loops,
etc., that are judged by
two individuals. There
are two scribes nearby
that write down all the
scoring information.
A spotter sits with the
judges, informing them
as to what maneuver is
coming next, so they can
keep looking skyward
and watch the aircraft.

Planes in the unlimited

Bottom-up history: An every-person's story of our past

On Oct. 12, 1492,
Columbus and
his sailors landed on a
Bahamian beach, where
they were met with
friendly hospitality by
the Arawaks, the indige-
nous Bahamians. Later,
Columbus wrote of the
Arawaks in his log, "They
willingly traded every-
thing they owned ... They
do not bear arms, and do
not know them ... They
would make fine servants
... With 50 men we could
subjugate them all and
make them do whatever
we want."
Columbus got his way.
The Arawaks were subju-
gated and forced to work
in mines and plantation
agriculture. The labor
was so brutal that by
1650, the Arawaks were
effectively exterminated,
according to historian,


playwright and social
activist Howard Zinn, in
his 1980 book: "A People's
History of the United
Zinn's book tells the
story of America and,
specifically, the United
States, from the bottom
up. He looks at history
from the point of view of
the Arawaks and other
Native Americans, as well
as African-Americans,
factory workers, immi-
grant laborers, women
and the working poor.
Dr. Martha Bireda,

executive director of
the Blanchard House
Museum of African-
American History and
Culture of Charlotte
County, examines Zinn's
work in a book study and
discussion short course
at Florida Gulf Coast
University's Renaissance
Academy in downtown
Punta Gorda. The class is
slated for 11 a.m. to noon
Thursday, March 20
through April 10.
Bireda begins with an
introduction to Zinn,
who died in 2010.
"He was an interesting
man. He was a civil rights
and anti-war activist and
possessed a clear class
consciousness," she said.
Within days of
Zinn's death, noted
Massachusetts Institute
of Technology scholar
Noam Chomsky, a close
friend of Zinn, wrote,

"Howard's remarkable
life and work are sum-
marized best in his own
words. His primary
concern, he explained,
was 'the countless small
actions of unknown peo-
ple' that lie at the roots
of 'those great moments'
that enter the historical
record a record that
will be profoundly
misleading, and seriously
disempowering, if it is
torn from these roots
as it passes through the
filters of doctrine and
Bireda's course turns
to an examination of
Columbus and "how his
story has influenced the
telling of our American
history, as well as our
American values, and
what our history says
about those values," she
The themes of progress

and supremacy and
their effects on those
who find themselves
excluded from the
mainstream are exam-
ined in depth, along with
the Revolutionary War
and the Indian Removal
Act. Bireda connects
her course to Florida
with an examination of
the Indian Removal Act
and President Andrew
Jackson. The act pre-
cipitated the Second
Seminole War (1835-42),
when the Seminoles
refused to relocate
voluntarily west of the
Mississippi River.
Although the class is
scheduled for one hour,
Bireda may extend the
group discussion beyond
the time limit.

Q. Are pleated filters the
best to buy for your air
conditioner? How often
should I change them?
A. John and Carrie Gable
at Dale's Air
Conditioning & Heating,
recommend pleated
filters, where the pleats/
apex of the pleat is spaced
about 1" apart, are the
best. The hypoallergenic
filters- where the pleats/
apex are 1/4" apart are
generally "too good".
They are highly restrictive
for airflow. They load and
get dirty very quickly. As a
general rule of thumb, you
should inspect & change
your filter, no matter what
type, every 30 days.
John and Carrie strive to

educate their customers
on how to keep their home
heated and cooled in the
winter and summer, and
what to do to extend the

Challenges are

numerous for

area educators

abound for Florida educators
who would like to see the state
improve its success rate in
educating our children. But one
solution most agree on is for the
state to grant more autonomy
to each school district to decide
how it spends its allocation of
funds and the curriculum and
programs it offers.
lorida ranks in the bot-
tom five of all 50 states in
per capital spending per
student according to National
Education Association Rankings
and occupies a similar position
when it comes to success rates
on standardized testing.
Given those statistics, does
money make a difference?
Without a doubt, according
to three area superintendents
and others who participated
last week in a Sun Roundtable
discussion. But, the answer to
turning out better-educated
students is a lot trickier than
throwing money at the problem.
Participants pointed to
Sarasota County, whose stu-
dents test among the top five
counties in the state, as clear
evidence that money can make a
difference. Thanks to a voter-ap-
proved 1-mill tax, Sarasota has
been able to make its teachers
some of the highest paid in the
state drawing teachers from
nearby counties into the fold.
Lori White, Sarasota super-
intendent, said the goal is to
attract the brightest and best.
But the tax which Roundtable
participants Charlotte and
DeSoto counties do not charge
- also pays for extra hours of
education for students, along
with extra staff that can contrib-
ute to better performance on
standardized tests used to rate
Charlotte Superintendent
DougWhittaker said the loss of
personnel who provided help
preparing for standardized tests
was a major reason Charlotte
County's test performance fell
this past year.
DeSoto Superintendent
Karyn Gary pointed out that her
county is in a whole different
ballpark, as it must deal with
not only a lack of funds but a
problem with students who are
not fluent in English and a pov-
erty level that qualifies almost
100 percent of DeSoto students
for free or reduced lunches.
All three education leaders
said their hands are tied by the
tight requirements by Florida's
Legislature and Department
of Education on how funds are
For example, Whittaker
bemoaned the fact that he has
dozens of paid employees who
are needed just to keep track of
how Charlotte County is com-
plying with state regulations.
Educators at the Roundtable
said they would like to be able
to make decisions on how to
spend money. They charged
that almost all the extra funding
Gov. Rick Scott has promised
this coming year money Scott
and the Legislature says will be a
record amount is already ear-
marked through state mandates.
Very little of the "extra" revenue
will be able to go toward teach-
ers' pay or to reduce class size.
Despite some of the real and
perceived problems, our schools
are turning out some of the
brightest students ever. There
are more students in advanced
placement (college) classes and
graduation rates are up. And,
while the U.S. may fall behind
other countries in standardized
tests, its students have prob-
lem-solving and arts skills that
are unsurpassed.
Florida schools are doing a
good job overall. The people

who run them say they could
do even better if they had more
control of how to spend their


Government should
get out of the way

Bill Southwick wrote a
column Feb. 22 and iden-
tified himself as a member
of the Curmudgeon Club. I
was aghast when I read his
column. I could not believe
anyone with any amount of
common sense could believe
what he espoused.
Mr. Southwick proposed the
expansion of our local govern-
ment further into our private
lives. People who have very
little understanding of what
makes a business operate suc-
cessfully. These people would
impose rules on us that would
do very little to improve the
living conditions of the tenants
he proposes to support. These
"services" would only serve to
increase the rent on a group of
people who can hardly afford
it. Not to mention that in true
government fashion these
regulations would become
more oppressive as time
went on and the bureaucrats
charged with enforcing these
regulations sought to expand
their power.
I propose an alternative.
Why not let the free market
work in the fashion that it has
for generations? Safer, cleaner,
prettier homes will rent faster,
for more money and stay
rented longer. The govern-
ment can help to expedite
and encourage the process. A
list of desired improvements
could be created. Then a tax
break could be offered.
I believe an extensive list
could be created to uplift
these blighted areas without
heavy-handed government in-
volvement. The best thing they
can do is get out of the way.

DAY does
wonderful job

The Disabled American
Veterans do a great service for
our veterans. They fight hard
for veterans' rights and for
veterans' disability payments.
The men and women involved
put in countless hours to help
our nation's finest and they do
it all on a volunteer basis.
My father was a volunteer
in our Port Charlotte DAV
Post 82. He gave thousands
of hours handling the front

desk, answering the phones,
making all who came in feel
comfortable and welcome. He
was proud to be associated
with them and was dedicated
to what they stand for.
Fred died Feb. 27, 2014.
DAV Post 82 was incorrectly
informed that they would not
be welcome at my father's
funeral. It was an outright lie.
DAV members were welcome
and expected at the funeral,
interment and reception. I
would never dishonor the DAV
or my father in such a way.
I hope that if any veterans
read this they will know that
the service officers and staff at
our local DAV are skilled and
dedicated people.
Please go and see them for
help and guidance through the
entanglements of filing for dis-
ability claims and for widow's
allotments. I would encourage
all veterans to get involved in
this fine organization so it can
continue the service it does.

Don't use God's
name with malice

Reading a letter in the
March 8 edition, I am called
to make an observation.
In reviewing the 10 laws
(commandments) given to
Moses by God, I find no men-
tion of homosexuality. The laws
were given for the safeguarding
of Israel as a people dedicated
to God. If homosexuality would
have been a "burning" issue
to God, it would have been
The one offense that gets
stated is the third command-
ment, "You shall not invoke
with malice the name of the
Lord, your God." This means
that we cannot use God's name
to express hateful thoughts
or feelings, nor put those
thoughts and feelings in words.
As the wise Rabbi Hilel said
when asked to encapsulate
scripture into one thought:
"Love the Lord with all of you
heart, soul and mind and your
neighbor as yourself, the rest
is commentary."
You would do well to
remember a Jesus who ate
and prayed with anyone who
came his way. Christianity is
not about turning a back on
others, but meeting all others
with a servant heart and a
willingness to wash the feet of
all who God sends our way.
Hate, suspicion, narrow-
mindedness and separation
are not the benchmarks of
the godly. Love, compassion,

charity and acceptance are the
outward signs of faith and are
also good for the heart. Love
builds and anger depletes.
May God bless all with a
spirit to love. For labelers: I
am straight.
The Rev. James McConnell
Punta Gorda

Publish letters
for better society

In reviewing your letter
submission policy I have a
suggestion. Instead of pub-
lishing the "hate column," aka
some letters to the editor, why
not select letters that might
further society? Your claim is
to provide a public discourse.
For example: America taxes
tobacco products and some
of the tax money goes to
offset health issues caused by
smoking. Then why not tax
booze, (the higher the proof,
the higher the tax and the
more likely to cause damage)?
Put that collected money in
a trust fund and distribute to
people who suffer personal
damage or loss of property
due to drunk individuals?
Yours for a better society.

This time,
voting is critical

Do you remember 40 years
ago watching the movie
"Patton"? The first few min-
utes of the film showed the
general addressing his troops.
During that speech he said,
"Now I want you to remember
that no bastard ever won a
war by dying for his country.
He won it by making the other
poor dumb bastard die for his
Do you sometimes wonder
if the leaders of our political
parties have spoken to their
minions telling them that,
"No one has ever secured
their political agenda with
compromise. You secure your
agenda by making the other
side compromise."
Strangely enough, the
agenda for each party is pretty
much the same the "how
to do it" is the problem. One
party subscribes to more
spending, more borrowing,
more debt, while the other
party subscribes to less
spending, no borrowing, and
reducing the debt.
It appears that "we the
people" will have to resolve

this standoff by providing one
of the parties with a sufficient
majority in both houses that
will allow them to secure
their political agenda without
compromise. To bestow that
much power to one party is
an awesome responsibility.
Alternatively, perhaps a
complete change of the cast
of characters in Washington
would allow compromise.
Which will it be? It is obvious
that your participation in the
2014 elections has never been
more critical. Will you be there?

Rational people
do rational things

So I purchase land next to
an existing highway, let's call it
Interstate 75, then I expect the
state to build a concrete wall
to mitigate the expressway
Then I purchase a home
near Charlotte County airport.
After realizing planes make
noise I petition that the
runways be realigned to fly
over someone else's home.
D.H. Horton sends its
site-selection team. They make
a decision to purchase land to
build a new subdivision. They
send in the engineers, archi-
tects, construction crews and
sales teams. Then a lightbulb
lights somewhere. The nearby
city of Punta Gorda police gun
range, in operation since the
1970s, makes noise. Move that
gun range!
I live on a canal. What are
you going to do when I sell my
boat and demand the canal be
filled in?
Rational people do rational
things. Government has to
start using one word when
asked to spend money. No.
Tom Millitzer

is a win-win

The GOP's constant nega-
tive barrage of untruths con-
cerning Obamacare is again
offset by a positive fact about
the supposed loss of jobs.
Before the ACA there were
many older employees not
yet eligible for Medicare who
postponed their retirement
only because they could not
afford to buy health insurance
on the open market due to
their pre-existing condition.
So they continued to work for
the health insurance provided
by their employer.
Now with Obamacare they
can retire, thereby opening up
those jobs for younger unem-
ployed workers. A win-win!

How to keep them down on the farm

someone who is deter-
mined to disbelieve
something can man-
age to disregard an Everest
of evidence for it. So Barack
Obama will not temper his
enthusiasm for increased
equality with lucidity about
the government's role in
exacerbating inequality.
In the movie 'Animal
House," Otter, incensed by
the expulsion of his frater-
nity, says: "I think this sit-
uation absolutely requires
a really futile and stupid
gesture." Such thinking
gives us minimum wage
increases that do very little
for very few. Meanwhile,
there are farm bills, like
the one Obama signed last
month at Michigan State
MSU was one of the
models for the land-grant
colleges created under the
1862 MorrillAct, whose
primary purpose was to
apply learning to agricul-
ture. Today, we apply crony
capitalism to agriculture.
The legislation Obama lav-
ishly praised redistributes

wealth upward by raising
prices consumers pay.
Vincent Smith of Montana
State University says small
non-farm businesses are
almost 30 times more likely
to fail than farms, partly
because the $956 billion
farm legislation continues
agriculture's thick safety
net. The geyser of subsidies
assures that farm house-
holds will continue to be
53 percent more affluent
than average households.
Certain payments are,
however, restricted. People
making more than $900,000
annually are ineligible.
Seventy percent of
Agriculture Department
spending funds food
services. Nearly 48 million

people almost as many
live on the West Coast (in
California, Oregon and
Washington) -receive
food stamps. This depen-
dency, inimical to upward
mobility, is assiduously
cultivated by government
through "outreach initia-
tives" to "increase aware-
ness" and "streamline the
application process."
Between 2000, when
17 million received stamps,
and 2006, food stamp
spending doubled, even
though unemployment
averaged just 5.1 percent. A
few states have food stamp
recruiters. An award was
given to a state agency for
a plan to cure "mountain
pride" that afflicts "those
who wished not to rely on
Nearly two-thirds of
households receiving food
stamps qualify under "cat-
egorical eligibility" because
they receive transportation
assistance or certain other
welfare services. We spend
$1 trillion annually on
federal welfare programs

decades after Daniel
Patrick Moynihan said that
if one-third of the money
for poverty programs were
given directly to the poor,
there would be no poor.
But there also would be no
unionized poverty bu-
reaucrats prospering and
paying dues that fund the
campaigns of Democratic
politicians theatrically
heartsick about inequality.
The welfare state, pri-
marily devoted to pensions
and medical care for the
elderly, aggravates in-
equality. Young people just
starting up the earnings
ladder, and families in the
child-rearing, tuition-pay-
ing years, subsidize the
elderly, who have had
lifetimes of accumulation.
Households headed by
people 75 or older have the
highest median net worth
of any age group.
In this sixth year of
near-zero interest rates, the
government's monetary
policy breeds inequality.
Low rates are intended
to drive liquidity into the

stock market in search of
higher yields. The resulting
boom in equity markets
-up 30 percent last year
alone has primarily
benefited the 10 percent
who own 80 percent of
all directly owned stocks.
Charles Wolf writes in The
Weekly Standard: "The fi-
nancial sector's profits rose
from 18 percent of total
corporate profits preceding
the recession in 2007 to
23 percent in 2013."
Richard Fisher,
president of the Federal
Reserve Bank of Dallas,
says the total reserves of
depository institutions
"have ballooned from a
pre-crisis level of $43 billion
to $2.5 trillion."
And? "The store of bank
reserves awaiting discharge
into the economy through
our banking system is vast,
yet it lies fallow." The result
is a scandal of squandered
"In fourth quarter 2007,
the nation's gross domes-
tic product (GDP) was
$14.7 trillion; at year-end

2013 it was estimated to be
$17.1 trillion. Had we con-
tinued on the path we were
on before the crisis, real
GDP would currentlybe
roughly $20 trillion in size.
That's a third larger than it
was in 2007. Yet the amount
of money lying fallow in the
banking system is 60 times
greater now than it was at
year-end 2007."
The monetary base
having expanded 340 per-
cent in six years, there is
abundant money for busi-
nesses. But, says Fisher, the
federal government's fiscal
and regulatory policies
discourage businesses
growing the economy with
the mountain of money
the Fed has created. This is
why "the most vital organ
of our nation's economy -
the middle-income worker
- is being eviscerated."
And why the loudest com-
plaints about inequality are
coming from those whose
policies worsen it.

ening monetary screws is a bad idea

our years ago, some
of us watched with a
mixture of incredulity
and horror as elite discus-
sion of economic policy
went completely off the
rails. Over the course of just
a few months, influential
people all over theWestern
world convinced them-
selves and each other that
budget deficits were an
existential threat, trumping
any and all concern about
mass unemployment.
The result was a turn to
fiscal austerity that deep-
ened and prolonged the
economic crisis, inflicting
immense suffering.
And now it's happening
again. Suddenly, it seems
as if all the serious people
are telling each other that
despite high unemploy-
ment there's hardly any
"slack"' in labor markets -
as evidenced by a supposed
surge in wages and that
the Federal Reserve needs
to start raising interest rates
very soon to head off the
danger of inflation.
To be fair, those making
the case for monetary

tightening are more
thoughtful and less overtly
political than the archons
of austerity who drove the
last wrong turn in policy.
But the advice they're
giving could be just as
OK, where is this coming
The starting point for
this turn in elite opinion is
the assertion that wages,
after stagnating for years,
have started to rise rapidly.
And it's true that one pop-
ular measure of wages has
indeed picked up, with an
especially large bump last
But that bump is
probably a snow-related
statistical illusion. As econ-
omists at Goldman Sachs

have pointed out, average
wages normally jump
in bad weather not
because anyone's wages
actually rise, but because
the workers idled by snow
and storms tend to be less
well-paid than those who
aren't affected.
Beyond that, we have
multiple measures of wag-
es, and only one of them is
showing a notable uptick.
It's far from clear that the
alleged wage acceleration
is even happening.
And what's wrong with
rising wages, anyway? In
the past, wage increases
of around 4 percent a
year more than twice
the current rate have
been consistent with low
inflation. And there's a
very good case for raising
the Fed's inflation target,
which would mean seeking
faster wage growth, say
5 or 6 percent per year.
Why? Because even the
International Monetary
Fund now warns against
the dangers of"lowflation":
Too low an inflation rate
puts the economy at

risk of Japanification, of
getting caught in a trap of
economic stagnation and
intractable debt.
Overall, then, while
it's possible to argue that
we're running out of labor
slack, it's also possible to
argue the opposite, and
either way the prudent
thing would surely be to
wait: Wait until there's solid
evidence of rising wages,
then wait some more until
wage growth is at least
back to precrisis levels and
preferably higher.
Yet for some reason
there's a growing drumbeat
of demands that we not
wait, that we get ready to
raise interest rates right
away or at least very soon.
What's that about?
Part of the answer, I'd
submit, is that for some
people it's always 1979.
That is, they're eternally
vigilant against the danger
of a runaway wage-price
spiral, and somehow they
haven't noticed that noth-
ing like that has happened
for decades. Maybe it's a
generational thing. Maybe

it's because a 1970s-style
crisis fits their ideological
preconceptions, but the
phantom menace of stag-
flation still has an outsized
influence on economic
Then there's sado-
monetarism: the sense,
all too common among
banking circles, that
inflicting pain is ipso facto
good. There are some
people and institutions
-for example, the
Basel-based Bank for
International Settlements
- that always want to see
interest rates go up. Their
rationale is ever-changing
-it's commodity prices;
no, it's financial stability;
no, it's wages but the
recommended policy is
always the same.
Finally, although the cur-
rent monetary debate isn't
as openly political as the
previous fiscal debate, it's
hard to escape the suspi-
cion that class interests are
playing a role. A fair num-
ber of commentators seem
oddly upset by the notion
of workers getting raises,

especially while returns to
bondholders remain low.
It's almost as if they identify
with the investor class and
feel uncomfortable with
anything that brings us
close to full employment,
and thereby gives workers
more bargaining power.
Whatever the underlying
motives, tightening the
monetary screws anytime
soon would be avery, very
bad idea. We are slowly,
painfully, emerging from
the worst slump since
the Great Depression. It
wouldn't take much to
abort the recovery, and, if
that were to happen, we
would almost certainly be
Japanified, stuck in a trap
that might last decades.
Is wage growth actually
taking off? That's far from
clear. But if it is, we should
see rising wages as a
development to cheer and
promote, not a threat to be
squashed with tight money.

A rare night of bipartisan humor in D.C.

ow unpopular
is Washington
in the rest of
the country? While it's
true that Congress as an
institution has never been
highly prized by most
Americans, many of us
continued to hold a soft
spot for our own member
of Congress who, we were
sure, was different from
and better than his or
her ethically challenged
congressional colleagues
who would steal a hot
stove and then go back for
the smoke.
Well, it turns out, ac-
cording to the latest Wall
Street Journal/NBC News
poll, that a majority of us
would just as soon fire
everybody in Congress.
Here's the question: "If
there were a place on your
ballot that allowed you to
vote to defeat and replace

Mark Shields
PBS NewsHour

every single member
of Congress, including
your own representative,
would you do it?" By
a solid 54-42 percent
margin, American voters
answered "yes" to giving
the boot to everyone now
in office on Capitol Hill.
So for a much-needed
break from the negative
news, March brought
Washington's annual
Gridiron Dinner, where
there are by tradition,
after 129 years, just three
speakers a Democrat, a
Republican and the pres-
ident or his designated
hitter- who are expected
to be humorous. And
this year's event provided

some chuckles.
Freshman Republican
Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas,
a tea party favorite who
has never been afflicted
with self-doubt, was the
Republican speaker. After
acknowledging that he had
already, in just one year,
alienated many of his GOP
Senate colleagues, Cruz
addressed Secretary of
State John Kerry, President
Barack Obama's substitute:
"John Kerry crossed the
world to be here. What a
treat it must be for him to
share the dais with one of
only three senators who
voted against his nomina-
tion to be secretary of state.
Let's put it behind us, Mr.
Secretary, you squeaked by
with 97 votes. That's fine.
We in the 'Gang of Three'
have other fights to lose."
Cruz, a Harvard-
educated lawyer, spoke

of his much-criticized
confrontation with
Democratic Sen. Dianne
Feinstein of California, "I
was accused of acting like
some pompous know-it-
all. We're all familiar with
the type, and at Harvard
Law School, there is even
a word for it: alumni."
Referring to his "Born
in Canada business," he
said: "Canadians are so
polite, mild-mannered,
modest, unassuming,
open-minded. Thank
God my family fled that
oppressive influence
before it could change
me." By being so openly
self-deprecating, Cruz
surprised, and perhaps
even neutralized, many in
the audience who had not
been his fans.
Charlie Crist, the
former Republican
governor of Florida who is

running for that same job
now as a Democrat, was
the Democratic speaker.
He introduced himself,
admitting, "I'm a guy with
a healthy ego. But every
time my ego gets a little
bit out of control, my wife
Carole reminds me that
John McCain considered
me and Sarah Palin
for vice president and
decided Sarah was more
The evening's unexpect-
ed star was Kerry, who,
after complimenting the
formally attired journal-
ists in their white tie and
tails, needled the White
House: "President Obama
asked me to tell you:
'If you like your rented
tuxedo, you can keep it.'"
Kerry praised the
evening's Democratic
speaker before asking, "Is
Charlie Crist still here?

I had to check he's
always so quick to leave
a party." Then, turning
to Cruz, he added: "Ted
was actually only one of
three senators who voted
against my confirmation.
In his defense, it was
only because he doesn't
believe that men should
be secretaries." If Kerry
had been half as loose
and funny during his
2004 campaign, he could
have won and then been
forced to explain just
why he had picked John
Edwards to be his vice
It was a rare night of
bipartisan laughter and of
public figures not taking
themselves too seriously.

young people at Barack
Obama rallies, noting
that his candidacy would
collapse "if they don't show
The next night, after
Obama's victory celebra-
tion in Des Moines, Obama
strategist Steve Hildebrand
spotted me in a crowd.
"The kids showed up!" he
said fiercely.
They did. But where are
they now?
An army of 15 million
voters under 30 swept
Obama past Hillary Clinton
and John McCain and to
the presidency in 2008.
More than 12 million
helped him return in 2012.
But now his presidency
is on the line and the
Obama youth are aban-
doning him in his hour of
The administration
announced last week
that only 1.08 million
people ages 18 to 34 had
signed up for Obamacare

by the end of February,
or 25 percent of total
enrollees. If the proportion
doesn't improve signifi-
cantly, the result likely
will likely be fatal for the
Affordable Care Act.
The administration had
said it needed 40 percent
of registrants in the
exchanges to be young
adults, or about 2.7 million
of the expected 7 million
total. Overall enrollment
is also below target. But
the alarming shortcoming
is the number of young
participants, which would
make the insured popula-
tion older and sicker, and
the program too expensive.
This past week saw
the release of Obama's
sit-down with comedian

Zach Galifianakis of
"Hangover" fame to
encourage the young
to join the Obamacare
exchanges. It was good
comedy (the host, in the
White House Diplomatic
Reception Room, rolled
up his sleeve to show
Obama his "spider bites")
and it had the desired
result: The White House
reported a boost in traffic
to Yet the
fact that Obama sought
Galifianakis' help was an
indication of how much
the president's standing
has slipped among young
Americans. Six years earli-
er, he had been a demigod
among that demographic.
What went wrong? The
president and his aides
failed to keep his youth
movement engaged. But
part of the problem also
is the inability of the
millennial generation
to remain attached to a
cause. The generation that
brought Obama to power
is connected online but
has no loyalty to institu-
tions including, it turns

out, the ObamaWhite
In 2008, "the level of
innovation and engage-
ment in the election,
especially the primaries,
was amazing, but then
the level of engaging them
during the administration
was extremely disappoint-
ing," says Peter Levine, a
Tufts University professor
who specializes in youth
civic involvement. "He
had a potential army for
legislative success and
implementation, but the
Obama administration did
not do that. At a critical
moment in the first term,
they did not turn to them.
... They got rapid youth
Young voters, after
playing a big role in the
campaign, became little
more than an email list
for the White House and
Obama's Organizing for
Action group. Then came
health care reform. The
millennials, very liberal
overall, saw Obama's plan
as too timid; they were
disillusioned by his failure

to fight for the "public
option" of government-run
health plans.
This cost Obama the
young activists he would
need to rally enrollment
in Obamacare. Polling
by the nonpartisan Pew
Research Center found
that while the generation
looks more favorably on
big-government solutions
than older generations, the
millennials disapprove of
Obamacare in the same
proportion as the rest of
the population.
Even if Obama had
worked harder to keep
his youth army engaged,
it's not entirely clear that
the effort would have
succeeded. As a group, the
generation's attachment is
A Pew survey of the
generation, released earlier
this month, found the 18 to
33 crowd less attached
than older generations
to organized politics and
religion, less patriotic,
less eager to marry, and
less trusting of people.
Only 49 percent say the

phrase "a patriotic person"
describes them very well,
compared to percentages
ranging from 64 percent
to 81 percent for older
The millennials are
at least as passionate as
earlier generations and
more entrepreneurial, but
they lack ties to institutions
-unions, political parties,
churches -because of
their online existence. "The
organizational structure
they're growing up in is
so weak," Tufts Levine
tells me. As a result, "there
aren't very many durable
institutions that can capi-
talize on their enthusiasm.
They're being asked to do it
themselves, online, and it's
a tall order."
Asking them to pay
money to join a health
care exchange, it seems, is
too tall an order even
though the presidency they
created depends on it.

inclined until Russia

Soviets, boycotting the
Moscow Olympics, in-
creasing defense spending

Zbigniew Brzezinski to the

the massive military aid we
began sending the muja-
hedeen, whose insurgency
so bled the Russians over

not only lost Afghanistan
but were fatally weakened
as a global imperial power.

But the break-glass-in-
emergency Democratic
option in tough midterms
is finding a boogeyman.
In 2010, it was "secret
foreign money" funneled
through the Chamber of
Commerce. This absurdly
tendentious demagoguery
didn't stop Republicans
from picking up more
than 60 House seats.
Nor will the attack on
the Kochs affect this year's
outcome one way or
another. Are we supposed
to believe that voters, who
are overwhelmingly sour
on Obamacare, will ignore
their feelings about the
highly consequential law
and treat the midterms as
a referendum on the peo-
ple funding ads attacking
the law that they don't like
in the first place?
The left can be forgiven
for thinking everyone else is
as obsessed with the Koch
brothers as it is. The log on
the Koch Industries website
of NewYork Times stories
mentioning the Kochs since
2011 runs about 20 pages
when printed.
The logical endpoint of
this anti-Kochery was the

spectacle of left-wingers
protesting the coming
advent of the David H.
Koch Center at New York
Presbyterian Hospital
because of its association
with a philanthropist with
uncongenial politics. How
long before demonstrators
target the David H. Koch
Theater at Lincoln Center
and interrupt "Swan Lake"
with cries of "Koch Kills
The old Saul Alinsky
dictum is apt: "Pick the
target, freeze it, person-
alize it, and polarize it."
In its piece on Reid's
anti-Koch gambit, The
New York Times reports,
"The majority leader was
particularly struck by a
presentation during a
recent Senate Democratic
retreat, which emphasized
that one of the best ways
to draw an effective con-
trast is to pick a villain."
How high-minded.
For a powerful national
officeholder to stoop to
such invective against
private citizens seems
bullying and itself vaguely
un-American. But I defer
to Harry Reid. He is the
expert on American-ness.

Educators eager to see assessment test


The Sun/Sunday, March 16,2014


Sarasota County School
District superintendent Lori
White believes next school
year's student assessment test
will be the "highest-stakes test"
given to students in the history
of education in Florida.
And she is very concerned
that local educators have not
seen the test yet, and that the
state Department of Education
has not even announced the
name of the company that will
design it.
She is not alone in her
Charlotte County Public
Schools superintendent Doug


While topics ranged from
funding to the importance of
technical schools, standard-
ized testing dominated the
Whittaker said tests are
needed and that the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test was decent when it first
was rolled out to measure
Sunshine State Standards.
"It measured it well, but it
wasn't designed to separate
kids, and it wasn't designed to
force them into a bell curve.
It was like a spelling test you
give on a Friday everybody
in class could get an A if they
studied," Whittaker said. "We
got better at looking at that
data, we used that data, and
kids got better on the stan-
dards. Then when Jeb Bush
became governor, he said he
was going to embarrass Florida
schools into improving. And
he did. He set up a system that
wouldn't reward high achieve-
ment as much as punish low
Funding for schools now par-
tially is determined by testing,
with high-performing schools
earning funds lower-scoring
schools don't see.
The superintendents ex-
pressed frustration with the
funding cuts by the Florida

counties in the state, while
Sarasota County, thanks to its
voter-approved 1-mill tax-
which is up for voter renewal
March 25 is in the top five
out of 67 counties. White
credits the referendum with
helping the Sarasota district
maintain a longer school
day, and keeping hundreds


Whittaker worries about what
students will see when they sit
down next school year to take
the standardized test used to
evaluate teachers' effectiveness
and set merit-based pay raises.
"Teachers are going to be paid
based on this test, and decisions
may even be made on what
teachers are retained, and we
haven't even seen the test yet,"
Whittaker said.
The pair will have to wait
for several months before
they get a look at the test that
will be replacing the Florida

Comprehensive Assessment
Test, or FCAT, during the 2014-
2015 school year.
The assessment will test
students on the Florida
Standards, which basically are
the Common Core with local
"tweaking," Whittaker said.
The Florida Department of
Education will announce what
company has been selected to
design the test by the end of
the month, said Cheryl Etters,
agency spokeswoman.
The test itself should be
"rolled out" by the beginning
of the 2014-2015 school year,
she said.
"I worry about the quality of
a test that hasn't been properly
vetted," Whittaker said.

He said school officials are
unsure whether the test that
ultimately will assess third- to
1lth-grade students' knowl-
edge has been used in other
states, or if it is brand-new.
"We just don't know,"
Whittaker said.
Even if it is a test used in oth-
er states, questions will have to
be adjusted for Florida students
to ensure there are no culturally
specific questions that would
be unique to the state in which
the test originated.
White also expressed her
concerns, saying teachers cur-
rently do not know how the test
questions will be prepared, and,
therefore, they cannot prepare
their students.

uwny positives. But we tend
to dwell on negatives."
Keith Reester,
former superintendent
in the New York school system

of teachers on staff and test
scores up.
Last year, several Charlotte
County schools did poorly on
"Our kids didn't get stupid all
of a sudden," Whittaker said. "If
any reasonable person thought
that a school system could
lose 25 percent of its revenue
while it lost 4 percent of its
students unlike a business,
we can't scale back, can't close
stores, can't even increase
class size. We had to eliminate
positions 81 percent of our
budget is teachers we cut
paraprofessionalss), cut office
staff. We kept the arts it's
the one thing we kept but
we cut back on STEM (science,
technology, engineering, and
mathematics), cut back on PE.

- Randy McLendon,
Taking Our Country Back

"We have to have a balanced
budget... and if we were able
to (lose that money) and not
affect student learning, (then)
we were wasting 25 percent of
our money."
Reester, a New York state
school superintendent for 15
years, recalled issues with the
Regent's Exam, and said what
the local superintendents
were saying sounded familiar,
especially the links between
testing and funding.
"Nobody wants to do a bad
job," he said. "(What you're say-
ing about) testing rings true."
Whittaker said it isn't the
testing itself at issue.
"It's what the state does with
the test, and the frequency (of
testing)," he said. "I go back to
the old adage, 'the pig doesn't
get fat because you weigh it ev-
ery day.' We have a lot of data,
more than we even need."
McLendon, who has taken

"I really appreciate all three
superintendents being involved
in the business community."
Andy Wing,
Organizing for Action

real estate and contractor tests,
said sometimes people are just
not good test takers.
"A lot of time, tests don't give
an accurate picture of what a
kid can do," he said.
Whittaker mentioned
comparisons that seemed to
prove that.
"We had kids ... in (Advanced
Placement) classes at Charlotte
High (School) who scored
threes and fours on AP tests
(which are passing grades), but
didn't pass the FCAT. It isn't
testing kids, it's how you test
them," he said.
Asked whether Common
Core is the answer to the issue,
White said she doesn't oppose
standards, but felt the coming,
as-yet-undetermined assess-
ment replacing the FCAT will
prove more critical. The prob-
lem comes, she said, when
"you try to make (an assess-
ment) do all things," which she
believes the future assessment

"Will it be multiple-choice
questions, or will they be essay?"
she asked. "We just don't know."
Etters pointed out that
schools will not be penalized
for the results of the new
assessment for one year. For
example, schools that score
an F will not have to immedi-
ately implement a turnaround
strategy, because it will be the
first time the new test has been
given to students in Florida.
Students' scores on the new
assessment will not be com-
pared to the FCAT scores, and
the new baseline for student
performance will be set using
the test results from the new
assessment, she said.

test will be designed to do,
measuring both student and
teacher performance.
McLendon, while professing
trust in the three superin-
tendents at the table, still
had concerns about the way
education is going.
"How do we get back to the
basics? I think we have so far
left the basics, we can't even
see them anymore," he said.
Although the FCAT test is
going away, Gary said for some
students it was redundant.
"If they were unable to pass
the FCAT, they used the score
on the SAT or ACT. If the end
result for getting in college is
the ACT or SAT, why do we
need anything else?" she asked.
Whittaker thinks more kids
need the basics, and that "real
issues" tend to get lost in the
"hubbub ... and debate."
"We have fallen behind on
the pace of what it takes to be
successful in the world," he
said. "What do kids need to
know to go out and get a job
in the world today? The need
and performance level to be
successful has gone up. We're
getting better; we're just not
getting better fast enough."
Wing asked how the busi-
ness communities could help.
He helped to organize groups
through what now is called
Valencia College in Orlando,
that offered scholarships.
White said districts have to
define that involvement more
"We're involving them now
to help us get our middle
school kids excited about ca-
reers that are local," she said,
as Gary nodded in agreement.
"Right now, we give kids diplo-
mas, and they go off... and we
need to have the jobs that they
can stay for, so they can raise a
family here."

Cops' body cameras privacy issue

Officers at thousands
of law enforcement
agencies are wearing
tiny cameras to record
their interactions with
the public, but in many
cases the devices are
being rolled out faster
than departments are
able to create policies to
govern their use.
And some rank-and-
file officers are worried
the technology might

ultimately be used to
derail their careers if, for
example, an errant com-
ment about a superior is
captured on tape.
Most law enforcement
leaders and civil liberties
advocates believe the
cameras will ultimately

the devices give them
a way to record events
from their point of view
at a time when citizens
armed with cellphones
are actively scrutinizing
their every move.
They say, however,

that the lack of clear
guidelines on the camer-
as' use could potentially
undermine depart-
ments' goals of creating
greater accountability of
officers and jeopardize A

was "not something that is
an appropriate role for me
and the White House to
wade into at this point."
Staying out of the fray
may prove difficult, given
Obama's involvement in
the issue at the core of
the dispute: What kind of
public reckoning should
there be for those who
carried out waterboarding
and other harsh interroga-
tion methods?
Even as Obama
stated his neutrality in
the Feinstein-Brennan
dispute, he sent his chief of
staff, Denis McDonough,
and top lawyer, Kathryn
Ruemmler, to meet with
the California senator.
The president has said
he wants the report from
Feinsteirn's committee
on the CIA program
to be made public.
The committee only
undertook the review
after Obama banned the
interrogation techniques
when he took office. His
opposition to them was
a centerpiece of his first
presidential campaign,
helping him build support
among Democrats and
"There's no reason for
him to in any way hide the

Rescue workers reach basement of NYC blast site

Emergency workers
sifted through debris
Saturday from the site
of a deadly explosion
at two New York City
apartment buildings as
they worked to clear the
way for investigators
to search for clues
that might reveal what
caused the blast.
Fire Commissioner
Salvatore Cassano said
rescue workers reached
the rear of the basement
Saturday but said that
investigation of the
piping and meters in
the front of the base-
ment that will help
explain what caused the
blast that killed eight
people will likely start
on Sunday.
He said that the
National Transportation
Safety Board should
be able to start pres-
sure-testing the pipes
Arson detectives and
fire marshals have been
waiting to enter the
basements to examine
meters, check pipes and
inspect any possible
ignition sources, such
as light switches, that
might have caused the
The theory that the
explosion was due
to a gas leak gained
momentum Friday
after the NTSB, which
investigates pipeline
accidents, said under-
ground tests conducted
in the hours after the
explosion registered
high concentrations of
natural gas. The NTSB
will conduct its own
inquiry after police and
fire officials determine
what might have caused
the blast.
Cassano said about
15 percent of the debris
was left on the site late
Saturday afternoon.
An uplifting moment
from the painstaking
recovery effort came
as crews pulled a large
water-damaged Bible
from the rubble of
the Spanish Christian
Church, which was
located in one of
the two destroyed

buildings. About two
dozen people, including
clergy members, carried
the Bible in a solemn
procession near the East
Harlem site.
"This was in the
depths of the rubble.
Somehow God protect-
ed it," said Rick del Rio,
a bishop at the Church
of God.
The church's pastor,
Thomas Perez, suffered
heart palpitations when
he saw the Bible, said
Letitia James, the city's
public advocate. He was
taken by ambulance to a
hospital as a precaution,
supporters said.
Cassano said Perez
was overwhelmed with
"It was singed but it

"We're proposing to have
fewer than 10, and this

Priebus is proposing to
hold just 10 debates for
the would-be GOP nom-

Tensions rise over access to local government

(AP) It was a chilling
crime and, even with a
quick arrest, disturbing
questions lingered.
called 911 in the coastal
Maine city of Biddeford to
report that he was being
threatened. Police checked
out the complaint, decided
it was a civil matter and left
the scene. Three minutes
later, the teenager and his
girlfriend were shot dead.
In a state averaging
25 murders a year, the
case was clearly of public
interest and the police
officers were doing the
public's business. But
answering questions about
their handling of the call
took a lawsuit, an appeal
and 11 months after state
prosecutors turned down
the Portland Press Herald's
request for 911 transcripts.
The faceoffwas eventu-
ally settled in the news-
paper's favor by Maine's
top court. But editors,
advocates and academics
say such situations reflect
increasing difficulty getting
access to information
from statehouses and city
halls across the country, as
officials broadly interpret

exemptions in laws
requiring openness.
Tensions between
government officials,
journalists and watchdog
groups are a constant in
American life. But while it
can be difficult to measure
change, observers are
troubled by what they see
as declining transparency
that some say maybe
abetted by public apathy.
Government's swing away
from openness began with
post-9/11 security worries,
they say, and has been
fueled more recently by
officials' concerns about
individual privacy, changes
in technology and opaque
laws on campaign finance.
"There's a clear trend
toward increased secrecy
in this country. I see it in
my survey research of jour-
nalists and I also see it just
on the ground, in what's
happening at state capitals
and the federal govern-
ment," said David Cuillier,
director of the University
of Arizona School of
Journalism, who studies
citizen and press access to
public information.
While the federal
government's resistance

to openness draws regular
attention, state and local
officials have also moved
to limit access to informa-
tion and proceedings, he
and others say.
That is reflected in a
2012 report by the Center
for Public Integrity and
partner organizations that
gave more than half of
state governments grades
of D or F for transpar-
ency and accountability.
Investigators' findings
included states whose
open records laws includ-
ed hundreds of exemp-
tions and others that make
critical budget decisions
out of view of the public.
At the same time,
researchers say journalists
are finding it more difficult
to obtain information
from government through
Freedom of Information
requests. And, in a survey
of more than 450 state
and local reporters to be
released this week, an
overwhelming majority
said that public informa-
tion officers for agencies
they cover are increas-
ingly restricting access
to officials and imposing
other controls limiting

their ability to report on
"The problem is perva-
sive," said Carolyn Carlson,
a professor of communi-
cation at Kennesaw State
University, outside Atlanta,
who conducted the survey.
"I think it's a problem for
reporters as well as for
the public. It means that
reporters can't tell the story
that they want to be able
to tell them about their
Those findings are
echoed in the anecdotal
experience of newsroom

thirds said that over the

ernments they cover had
become less cooperative
in providing access to

Seniors vulnerable to poverty despite government help

Newspapers)- Fifty years
after the War on Poverty,
a third of Florida seniors
live on incomes of less
than $20,000 year for an
Nine percent live below
the poverty line, which is
about $10,000 a year for a
single person and about
$14,000 for a couple.
And those are conserva-
tive estimates of poverty
among the elderly, accord-
ing to testimony given

at an aging committee
hearing headed last week
by Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla.
"When we think of the
poor, the elderly are not
usually the group to come
to mind," Nelson said.
The image of retirees
includes freedom to dote
on grandchildren, play golf
and take vacations.
"For some elderly
Americans, retirement is
not golden," Nelson said.
While Congress debates
ways to change entitlement

programs that preserves
them for future genera-
tions, experts testified last
week that members must
consider the precarious
state of seniors with the
lowest incomes.
Between 2011 and 2012,
the proportion of seniors
who are deeply poor an
income of $5,500 for a
single person increased
by 25 percent, said Joan
Entmacher, director of
family economic security
of the National Women's

Law Center.
Nearly 4 million
seniors are now in
poverty. Without their
Social Security benefits,
that number would climb
to 19.2 million, according
to census data.
Currently, a quarter of
married seniors and half
of single seniors depend
on Social Security for
90 percent of their income,
Nelson said.
No sane member of
Congress would propose

doing away with Social
Security or Medicare. Even
tweaks, such as a proposal
supported by the Obama
administration to change
cost-of-living increases for
Social Security benefits,
could plunge more seniors
into poverty, witnesses
Over time, that cut is
equivalent to "a little more
than a week's worth of
food every single month,"
said Entmacher. "So that
really, really hurts."

In 2011, the Census
released a new poverty
calculation that takes into
account additional mea-
sures than the traditional
statistic, including out-of-
pocket health care costs
- a significant stress for
many seniors.
Under that calculation,
Florida's senior poverty
rate nearly doubles to
17 percent. Half the state's
elderly would be living on
the equivalent of $20,000
for an individual or less.

spring break

(AP) -What did the
president of a Michigan
university do on spring
break? He made a snow
angel, napped on an
empty bus and read a
book in a greenhouse.
Tom Haas apparently
has a sense of humor.
Grand Valley State
University posted a
video on YouTube

that portrays him as a
lonely guy stuck on the
snow-covered campus
in Allendale while
students likely dashed
to warmer destinations.
At the end of the vid-

grand fashion." Classes

College offers to pay students to take year off

- Colleges are paying
students to take a year
off after high school to
travel, volunteer or do
A new program at Tufts
University and existing
ones at a handful of other
schools aim to remove
the financial barriers
keeping cash-strapped
students from exploring
different communities and
challenging their comfort
zones instead of jumping
right into college.
The "gap year" program
starting this fall at Tufts
will pay for housing,
airfare and even visa fees,

which can often add up to
$30,000 or more.
Although gap years are
more popular in Europe,
they have started to gain
traction in the United
States. About 40,000
Americans participated
in gap year programs in
2013, an increase of nearly
20 percent since 2006,
according to data gathered
by a nonprofit called
the American Gap Year
In 2009, Princeton
University began offering
applicants gap-year aid
based on need. Nearly
100 students have partic-
ipated, volunteering in

Brazil, China, India, Peru
and Senegal.
The University of North
Carolina offers $7,500 to
gap year applicants, while
students at Wisconsin's
St. Norbert College can
receive financial aid based
on need, although airfare
isn't covered.
Lydia Collins, a 19-year-
old Tufts freshman from
Evanston, Ill., said she took
a gap year because she
wanted to see what was
outside of the classroom
before committing to four
more years of school.
"A lot of kids are very
burnt out after high
school," Collins said.

"Taking this time to be
with yourself and see
yourself in a new com-
munity and light will only
help you to succeed in
Collins worked in
microfinance in Ecuador
through the poverty-
fighting group Global
Citizen and said the
experience inspired her
to pursue international
relations, something she
would not have known
about beforehand.
Students who take part
are able to see the world
beyond the bubble they
grew up in and return
to school with a better

perspective of their future,
said Holly Bull, president
of the Center of Interim
Programs, which coun-
sels students on taking

gap years. Bull said the
benefit of the structured
time away from school is
too valuable to exclude
lower-income students.

Better Business Bureau lists top 10 scams of the year

Medical alert scam-
With promises of a "free"
medical alert system, the
scam targeted seniors and
claimed to be offering the
system free of charge be-
cause a family member or
friend had already paid for
it. In many cases, seniors
were asked to provide their
bank account or credit
information to "verify" their
identity and, as a result,
were charged the monthly
$35 service fee. The system,
of course, never arrived and
the seniors were left with
a charge they had trouble
getting refunded.
Easy rule be wary of

your personal information

Auction reseller scam
- Scammers have figured
out a way to fool sellers
on Ebay and other online
marketplaces into shipping
goods without receiving
payment. Usually the buyer
claims it's an "emergency"
and asks the seller to
ship the same day. The
seller receives an email that
looks like it's from PayPal
confirming the payment,
but emails are easy to fake.
Always confirm payment
in your Ebay and PayPal
accounts before shipping,
especially to an overseas
Arrest warrant scam
- In this scam, con artists
are taking advantage of
technology that can change
what is visible on Caller
ID, and allowing them to
pose as a law enforcement
officer. They call to say
there is a warrant out for
your arrest, but that you
can pay a fine in order to
avoid criminal charges. Of
course, these "police" don't
take credit cards; only a
wire transfer or pre-paid

Invisible home
improvements- These
scams involve some type of
shoddy workmanship from
unlicensed or untrained
workers. Often they offer to
work on roofs, chimneys,
air ducts or other areas that
you can't see. Scammers
may simply knock at your
door offering a great deal
because they were "in the
neighborhood," but more
and more they are using
telemarketing, email and
even social media.
Casting call scam -
Scammers pose as agents
or talent scouts looking
for actors, singers, models,
reality show contestants,
etc., and use phony audi-
tion notices to fool aspiring
performers into paying to
try out for parts that don't
exist. It can simply be an
unscrupulous way to sell
acting lessons, photogra-
phy services, etc., or it can
be an outright scam for
things like fees for online
"applications" or upcoming
"casting calls."
Foreign currency scam
- Scammers advertise
an easy investment with
high return and low risk
when you purchase Iraqi
dinar, Vietnamese dong or,
most recently, the Egyptian
pound. The plan is that,
when those governments
revalue their currencies, in-
creasing their worth against
the dollar, you just sell and
cash in. Unlike previous
hoaxes, you may even take
possession of real currency.
The problem is that they
will be very difficult to sell,
and it's extremely unlikely
they will ever significantly
increase in value.
Scam texts Known
as "smishing," these are
designed to steal personal
information. They look
like a text alert from
your bank, asking you to
confirm information or
"reactivate your debit card"
by following a link on your
Do not call scams -
The National Do Not Call
Registry offers consumers
a free way to reduce

of course, and they've
even found a way to scam
consumers by pretending
to be a government
official calling to sign you
up or confirming your
previous participation on
the Do Not call list. In one
variation, scammers ask
for personal information.
In another, scammers try
to charge a fee to join the
registry. Either way, just
hang up.

After Crimea, wary Eastern Europe asks: Who's next

(AP) Broken promises
of help from the West. A
tragic history of Russian
invasion that goes back
centuries. A painful
awareness that conflicts
in this volatile region are
contagious. These are the
factors that make nations
across Eastern Europe
watch events in Ukraine -
and tremble.
From leaders to ordinary
people, there is a palpable
sense of fear that Russia,
seemingly able to thumb
its nose atWestem powers
at will, may seek more
opportunities for incur-
sions in its former imperial

backyard. The question
many people are asking is:
Who's next?
"There is first of all fear
... that there could be
a possible contagion,"
Romanian Foreign
Minister Titus Corlatean
told The Associated Press
in an interview. "Romania
is extremely preoccupied."
Specifically, concerns
run high that after taking
over the strategic penin-
sula of Crimea, Russian
President Vladimir Putin
maybe tempted to try
a land grab in Moldova,
where Russian troops are
stationed in the breakaway
province of Trans-Dniester.

It's one of several "frozen
conflicts" across Eastern
Europe whose ranks
Crimea many in the
West now say with resigna-
tion has joined.
In Romania, which
neighbors predominantly
Moldova, Monica
Nistorescu urged the West
to stand up to Putin lest
he come to view himself as
"The world should stop
seeing Putin as the invin-
cible dragon with silver
teeth," said Nistorescu,
"because we will succeed
in making him believe that
Russia is what it once was."

Across the border,
Moldovan fears of
Russian invasion were in
no way theoretical: "We
are afraid the conflict in
Ukraine could reach us
in Moldova," saidVictor
Cotruta, a clerk in the
capital Chisinau. "Russian
troops could take over
Moldova in a day."
Many in the region
are keenly aware that
Poland had guarantees of
military aid from France
and Britain against Nazi
aggression. But when
Hitler invaded in 1939,
France and Britain didn't
send troops to Poland
despite their declarations

With Crimea set to hold
a referendum Sunday on
whether to merge with
Russia, the push to demon-
ize Ukraine's leadership
has reached fever pitch.
Authorities in Ukraine have

responded by blocking
Russian TV channels.
Lev Gudkov, head of a
respected independent
Moscow-based polling
agency, says the propagan-
dist tone of Russian state
television has reached new
"For intensity,

comprehensiveness and
aggressiveness, this is like
nothing I have ever seen

lawlessness to vague

threats of reprisals against
ethnic Russians and
Jews, as well as showing
interviews with talking
heads alleging foreign-en-

NTV, owned by gas
giant Gazprom's media
arm, on Thursday aired a
report about purportedly

hacked email correspon-
dence between U.S. and
Ukrainian officials on
plans for staging an attack
on military jets. The piece
goes on to claim that the
incident was to serve as
an excuse for the United
States to take military
action against Russia.

Need for caffeine trumps price fears

as coffee drinkers crave their fix

(Bloomberg) Doreen
Cappelli is so hooked on
her morning cappuccino
that she says she'd pay a lot
more to get it.
"I don't drink wine and
alcohol," Cappelli, 52,
said after buying the $3.25
drink at Blue Bottle Coffee
at San Francisco's Ferry
Building, in the shadow of
the Bay Bridge. "Coffee is
one of my pleasures in life.
I would pay double."
While prices probably
won't go up that much just
yet, pressure is growing
on the $80 billion U.S.
coffee industry as the cost
of arabica beans used in
high-end brews skyrock-
ets. Futures in New York
jumped 85 percent this
year to $2.053 a pound.
By May, they may reach
$3, the highest since 2011,
said Judy Ganes-Chase,
an industry consultant in
Panama City, Panama, who
has been analyzing the
market for three decades.
Arabica is off to its
biggest rally to start a year
in at least four decades
after drought hurt crops
in Brazil, the world's top
grower. Eventually, that will
mean higher bean costs
for Keurig Green Mountain
Inc. and J.M. Smucker
Co., maker of Folgers, the
best-selling U.S. brand.
For now, sellers includ-
ing Starbucks, the largest
coffeehouse chain, say
they're in no hurry to raise
prices. Many have stock-
piles of cheaper beans

from before the rally. Even
if they do start to charge
more, history shows that's
no deterrent for American
consumers, the biggest
"I need it- it's like
crack," said Lindsay
Cooper as she stood in
line for her morning cup
at Philz Coffee in Mission
Bay near AT&T Park, the
San Francisco Giants
baseball stadium. "I feel
like I'm exposing a deep,
dark secret. Is there some
sort of coffee rehab? If so,
hopefully mine has coffee."
In 2011, when futures
doubled over 12 months
to a 14-year high of
$3.089 and retailers
including Smucker and
Kraft Foods raised prices,
U.S. consumption still
rose 1.2 percent from

2010 to 2.916 billion
pounds, according to
the International Coffee
Organization in London.
In the past decade, as do-
mestic demand jumped
44 percent to 100.3 billion
cups last year, spending
rose even more, up 135
percent, data compiled
by Cedarhurst, New
York-based researcher
StudyLogic shows.
"There's very low
for coffee," said Paul
Christopher, the St. Louis-
based chief international
strategist at Wells Fargo
Advisors, which manages
$1.4 trillion. "Would people
who like coffee regularly
substitute tea, or soda, if
prices rise? The answer is
Americans drink

one of every four cups
globally, 9.5 percent
more than No. 2 Brazil
and two and a half times
the amount consumed
in Germany, ICO data
show. About 32 percent
of U.S. demand is
outside the home, in
restaurants including
McDonald's, coffee
shops including Tim
Hortons, and at work, up
from 21 percent in 2004,
StudyLogic estimates.
"People still go out for
their cup of joe," Nigel
Travis, the chairman and
chief executive officer
of Canton, Mass.-based
Dunkin' Brands Group,
owner of the world's
largest donut chain, said
on a Feb. 6 conference call
with analysts. "It's a very
ritualistic business."

BERLIN (Bloomberg)
- Seven decades ago, Gil
Mincberg's grandmother
immigrated to Israel after
surviving Nazi persecu-
tion. Two generations
later, Mincberg has left
the Jewish state for the
capital of Germany.
"I feel like I have
better opportunities"
than in Israel, Mincberg
said, raising his voice
to be heard over the
indie rock soundtrack at
Kindl Stuben, a cafe in
Berlin's scruffy Neukoelln
neighborhood. Just as
important, the 26-year-old
software developer notes,
"my cost of living has gone
down dramatically."
For many years after
World War II it was taboo
for Israelis to move to
Germany. These days
Berlin is among the top
destinations for those
priced out of housing and
struggling with grocery
bills. And for people
whose forefathers were
German Jews, Berlin
makes sense because it's
easy to get dual citizen-
ship. The number of
Israelis in the city has risen
by about 40 percent since
2006, Berlin authorities
Unlike Israel's pioneers
- mostly European immi-
grants fleeing anti-Semi-
tism and motivated by an
ideological commitment
to Zionism many young

Israelis see Berlin as a hav-
en from the economic and
social difficulties plaguing
their country. The city
today is home to about
17,000 Israelis, according
to the German embassy in
Tel Aviv.
Tomer Mazie, who was
entitled to a German pass-
port because his grand-
parents came from the
country, has received 752
euros ($1,035) a month in
unemployment benefits
since arriving a year ago,
helping him get by as he
learns the language. "I'm
not here for the benefits,"
the 26-year-old said over
tea in Turkish restaurant
in central Berlin. "But it
doesn't hurt."
While Israel's econo-
my has outpaced most
developed countries with
average growth in the past
five years at 4 percent, ver-
sus 0.7 percent for OECD
countries, many Israelis
say their standard of living
is slipping as salaries are
outpaced by prices. Since
2008, apartment rents
have risen 51 percent
while average wages have
dropped 1.6 percent,
according to government
figures. Consumer prices
have jumped 16 percent.
Rising rents and a relative
scarcity of affordable
housing sent thousands
of Israelis into the streets
of Tel Aviv during the
summer of 2011.

(Washington Post) -
U.S. Embassy officers
don't wear capes or silly
tights, but on more than
one occasion, they've
come to Steve Nelson's
In March 2012, the
Indiana missionary
was living in Bamako,
Mali, when gun-toting
rebels attacked the
West African country in
an attempted military
coup. The American
tracked the perilous
situation through text
messages released by
the U.S. Embassy. For
five days, he abided
by the official order
to "shelter in place."
During a lull in the
fighting, he drove to

safety, crossing the
border into Senegal.
More than a decade
earlier, Nelson had also
leaned on the State
Department's foreign
corps. For a week,
he and his wife had
hunkered down in a
dormitory in Kinshasa
while national military
forces rampaged against
Mobutu Sese Seko,
the corrupt president
of then-Zaire. They'd
escaped through an
embassy-crafted evacu-
ation plan that involved
an armed convoy, a
ferry ride to the French
Congo and a flight to
Andrews Air Force Base
in Maryland.
Compared with past

experiences, the duo's
latest interaction with
a U.S. embassy was like
an afternoon picnic
with no angry armies
of ants. To obtain
permanent residency
in Senegal, they needed
a consular officer in
Dakar to notarize their
documents. Sign, stamp
and go.
"It's important to
stay in touch with the
embassy," Nelson said
from behind a glass
divider in an embassy
private room. "We need
their help, and they're
there for us."
The United States has
planted nearly 300 em-
bassies and consulates
on international soil,

bassy is a
in destinations tropical
(Suva, Fiji) and urban
(Sao Paulo), peaceful
(Bern, Switzerland)
and volatile (Cairo),
touristy (Florence) and
not (Sanaa, Yemen). The
embassies' top priority
is to aid Americans trav-
eling abroad, although
staff members also work
on visa and immigration
issues and fraud investi-
gations. But Uncle Sam's
kids come first.
"We're here to serve
Americans," said Chris
Smith, vice consul in
Dakar. "We operate as
their agents."
True, but the assis-
tance comes with an
asterisk. For example,
the officers can't renew

friend indeed

your driver's license
or recommend a 24-
hour pharmacy where
you can pick up your
psychiatric meds. (All
real requests.) They also
can't spring you from
jail or foot any bills, al-
though they can provide
a list of lawyers, press
for fair prison condi-
tions and equitable
treatment, and advise
family members on how
to transfer funds to an
impaired traveler.
"There's a misper-
ception that we'll pay
for their flight home,"
Smith said. "A 19-year-
old came in and wanted
a free ticket."
Rest assured, the can-
do list is relatively long.

Among the services:
adding pages to a pass-
port, replacing a lost
or stolen one, issuing a
Consular Report of Birth
Abroad (CRBA), helping
family members track
down a missing loved
one, providing support
to an ailing or destitute
American (finding local
medical services or
lodging, for example),
making arrangements
for the remains of a
deceased individual
and, when terror strikes,
helping to extricate
Americans from danger.
"At parties, everyone
wants to talk to us,"
Smith said, "because we
have the most interest-
ing stories."

More signing leases, not closing papers

(Tampa Bay Times)
- Tampa Bay homeown-
ership, once so popular,
continues to lose its
appeal. The share of
people here who own a
home plunged last year
to its lowest point since
the U.S. Census Bureau
started counting in 1986.
Since peaking at 73 per-
cent during the housing
boom, homeownership
here, or the rate of lived-in
housing units that are
owner-occupied, has
fallen six straight years to
65 percent, lower than the
Florida average.
That's largely because
more people these days
are more apt to rent. The
occupancy rate of Tampa
Bay rentals rose last year,
to one of its highest points
since the '90s, census data
It's a trend that's
increasingly widespread:
across Florida has
fallen to its lowest point
(66 percent) since 1992,

and nationwide to its
lowest point (65 percent)
since 1995. But it's
especially surprising in
Tampa Bay, a stronghold
of suburbs and homeown-
er-heavy neighborhoods.
It's easy to see why
homeownership soared
during the housing
bubble, when banks
practically threw away
cash to over-their-head
It also makes sense that
renting would rise during
the bust, as foreclosed
families denied new
mortgages had no other
choice but to rent.
But even years after
the recession's end, rental
housing has continued "a
decade of unprecedented
growth," a recent report by
Harvard's Joint Center for
Housing Studies found.
So why are so few rush-
ing to the bank for a shot
at the American dream?
Rising prices are
eating away at housing
affordability. Bad credit

is blocking out buyers
from loans. Many others
who once would have
seen homes as sources of
stability have, in the shad-
ow of the housing bust,
changed their minds.
That homeownership
here has fallen to levels
not seen since before
the OprahWinfrey Show
premiered is no surprise
to big investors, who
have spent hundreds of
millions of dollars here
amassing a network of
rental homes.
"Since World War II,
homeownership has
been a proxy for wealth
creation," said Colony
American Homes CEO
Justin Chang, whose
home-rental giant had
by last year bought more
than 1,000 Tampa Bay
homes. "In the last five or
six years, that has been
turned on its head."
Hopeful home buyers,
too, say that the housing
market remains rife with
annoyances, including

still-slim inventories
of homes for sale and
tightfisted banks hesitant
to hand out loans.
Some say selling isn't
all it's cracked up to be,
either. Many potential
sellers are adopting big
investors' business model,
leasing their homes at
high rent rates now while
hoping home prices
continue to climb.
Nearly 4 out of 10
nationwide homeowners
looking to move said they
planned to rent out their
home instead of sell, a
study from online bro-
kerage Redfin found last
Renters come in all
shapes and sizes, in-
cluding married couples
with children, who have
contributed a growing
share of rental growth
over the last five years.
But adding to the dipping
homeownership rate are
young adults, who moved
back in with their parents
but are now increasingly

moving back out.
At home, they weren't
counted as their own
households. Now, as
they venture out on their
own, they're most often
beginning their journey
in an apartment or rental
Their exodus, analysts
said, could represent a
sizable new market. In
a report last month, the
Demand Institute called
new household growth
"the main driver of
housing demand in the
next five years."
In Hillsborough
County alone, the
number of single-fam-
ily rental homes grew
40 percent between 2012
and 2013, data from
property manager Home
Encounter show. A build-
ing boom in "luxury"
apartments in Tampa
and St. Petersburg's
downtown will also help
feed the demand.
But as renter crowds
swell and rental vacancy

rates shrink, Tampa Bay's
extremely low-income
households could end up
being hurt most.
For the more than
80,000 households
here earning less than
30 percent of the median
income about $17,000,
for a family of four -
there are fewer than
15,000 available rental
units they can afford,
Urban Institute data
That means, for every
100 extremely low-in-
come renter households
here, there are only 18
affordable, available
places to rent. Those
left out end up living in
substandard housing or
spending a risky amount
of their income on rent.
Some economists
believe homeownership's
27-year low could soon
level off as formerly
foreclosed buyers
"boomerang" back to the
market and banks ease
up on lending.

Parasitic worms
found in exotic
eel species
MIAMI (AP) -Federal
scientists are warning
consumers about parasitic
worms found in an invasive
eel species that's made a
home in Florida.
Officials with the U.S.
Geological Survey say
the worms were found in
Asian swamp eels collected
between 2010 and 2012.
The eels were collected
from Florida waters and
in ethnic food markets in
Orlando, Atlanta and New
York City.
The parasites could be
transmitted to people who

eat raw or undercooked
eels. Severe cases of the
infection can lead to blind-
ness, paralysis or death.
Swamp eels transported
live from Southeast Asia are
sold in ethnic food markets
nationwide. They also have
made their way into waters
in Florida, Georgia and
New Jersey. The eels have
few known predators in the
U.S. They also can breathe
air and move across land.

Revamp of state's pharmacy board in works

The Legislature is consider-
ing a bill that would change
the composition of the
state's Board of Pharmacy
to increase representation
for smaller and larger
The measure would
raise from one to three the
number of seats reserved
for pharmacists represent-
ing both small operations
and large chain stores.
The number of at-large
spots, reserved for people
with pharmacy licenses,
would be reduced from
five to one. Two people
would continue serving as
consumer representatives.
The legislative proposal
by Sen. Denise Grimsley,

R-Sebring, to beef up
pharmacy representation
follows an outcry by some
in the pharmaceutical
community against a
measure that would have
increased the number of
pharmacy technicians
who can be overseen by a
pharmacist from three to
That proposal proved
controversial because
many in the industry felt
that the board not the
Legislature should have
the authority to make such
a change.
It is exactly what some in
the pharmacy community
were seeking.
"The board is charged
with doing this kind of

thing, it has the technical
expertise that most legis-
lators do not have," said
Win Adams, governmental
affairs director for Freedom
HHCS, an Orlando-based
pharmacy group.
The Florida Pharmacy
Association supports the
"This is compromise lan-
guage between the parties
that have an interest in this
bill," said Michael Jackson,
the association's CEO.
Larger pharmacies
support the increase in
technician ratios, which
some blame for an increase
in accidents that can
result in harm to patients.
Advocates for the increase
contend it would allow

pharmacists to spend more
time with clients.
According to a 2012
survey by the National
Association of Boards of
Pharmacy, 17 states have
no restrictions on the
number of technicians a
pharmacist can oversee.
Florida is one of 13 states
with a 3-to-I ratio. Current
law says a licensed phar-
macist may not supervise
more than one technician
unless the board gives
permission. The maximum
is three.
Idaho and Indiana have
6-to-i ratios.
The Florida Retail
Federation is opposed to
giving the pharmacy board
the power to increase

the technician ratio, in
part because it has been
without an executive
director since October, said
Melissa Joiner, its director
of government affairs.
"Doing this will increase
the workload of the board
significantly. I'm afraid
this will bog down needed
The Pharmacy board
now has the authority
to grant a pharmacy's
application to increase its
technician ratio.
Under the proposal,
with more members from
both the community and
institutional setting, the
panel would ideally have
broadened professional
knowledge of what a

particular pharmacy
could handle. The board
would be the arbiter of
any ratio change, as it is
Consumers are caught in
the middle. While increas-
ing the ratio of technicians
to pharmacists would
speed up the process of
filling prescriptions, it also
raises the chance of medi-
cation error, some experts
say. The duties of pharmacy
technicians include the
filling and dispensing of
prescriptions as well as
handling minor clerical
work Pharmacists are drug
experts and their advice is
often sought out from other
health professionals and

also had access to bank

conclusion that lenders
will walk away from a

"In some cases they

Big Ten tourney win over
Ohio State, *Page 4

* MLB: Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay Rays starter Erik Bedard throws against the Toronto Blue Jays during Saturday's spring training game at Charlotte Sports Park. Bedard allowed three
runs on six hits in 4% innings as the Rays beat the Blue Jays 6-3.

Starters duel for No. 5

Bedard likes Rays'
mentality on results
Bay Rays have maintained throughout
spring training that results will not be
a factor when they decide who will win
the team's fifth starter job.
Erik Bedard said he likes that
approach. The veteran left-hander is
one of three candidates vying to break
camp as the Rays' fifth starter, and he
said taking pressure off of his results
has allowed him to work on his stuff
and get ready for the season, rather
than focus on keeping his numbers in
"It's good, because the ERAs not
good," Bedard said, laughing. "I proba-
bly wouldn't make the team right now."
Bedard did lower that ERA a few

Odorizzi, Ramos
keep Pirates in check
BRADENTON -Whether he was
battling through a jam or blowing
past the Pittsburgh lineup, Tampa Bay
pitcher Jake Odorizzi was just trying to
hit his spots.
As a candidate for the fifth starter
position, Odorizzi was happy with
Saturday's outing in a 6-3, split-squad
win against the Pirates.
He worked 32/3 innings of one-run
baseball that saw him surrender two
hits and three walks. He added a
pair of strikeouts to go along with six
groundouts and two flyouts.
"My arm felt great today; just a little
bit up in the zone," Odorizzi said.
"Everything was on target, just a little
bit up. Overall, I think it went good."

Tampa Bay has been active since

Here are some of the team's moves:

ow we know the
real reason why the
Bucs broke out the
new uniforms. They were
going to have to change
most of the names on the
back of the previous ones
In the first four days of
free agency last week, the
Bucs signed seven players
and committed $71.75
million (and potentially
$145.25 million) in
contracts. Understand
they had $122 million
left on the contracts of
cornerback Darrelle Revis
($80 million), right guard
Davin Joseph ($27 million)
and left tackle Donald
Penn ($15 million) before
releasing them.
Coach Lovie Smith and
general manager Jason
Licht didn't throw dollars
down the drain. These
were market or below-
market deals.
With only five draft
picks in May and needs
at every position except
safety and running back,
Smith and Licht knew
they would have to
address the deficiencies in
free agency. The goal was
to not become a hostage
to any position in the draft
because we all know need
is a bad evaluator.
And as much as Smith
would have loved to have
Revis in his defense, the
$16 million in salary cap
space would fill a lot of

Ray will remain the team's

Tampa Bay forced two

"We've always had the

Packers boost

rush with Pep

GREEN BAY, Wis. -The
Green Bay Packers defense
has gotten a big jolt from a
big name: Eight-time Pro
Bowl defensive end Julius
The ex-Carolina
Panthers and Chicago
Bears defensive end
signed a three-year
deal with the Packers
on Saturday morning,
bringing one of the NFL's
best pass-rushers to a
team that has historically
avoided major free-agent
The move was first re-
ported by ESPN. Peppers'
agent, Carl Carey, posted
photos to his Twitter ac-
count of Peppers signing
the deal and standing on
the still-frozen tundra
of Lambeau Field before
the team announced it
officially later in the day.
The Packers would not
make Peppers available to
"I haven't won a cham-
pionship," Peppers told
the Packers' website.
"That's where my focus is.
I feel like the team is set
up to make a run and I
feel I can help get it there."
Peppers went to the
Super Bowl in 2003 with
the Panthers, losing to the
New England Patriots.
The 34-year-old Peppers
was released Tuesday by
the Bears in a cost-cutting
move. Peppers would have
counted $18.183 million
against Chicago's salary
cap this season and had a
base salary of $13 million.
Peppers played in all
64 of the Bears' games
the past four seasons,
posting 37.5 sacks. His 7.5
sacks last season were his
fewest since a career-low
2.5 sacks in 2007, but he
still would have led the
Packers in that category
in 2012.
In Green Bay, Peppers
is reunited with Mike
Trgovac, who coached
him for his first seven sea-
sons in Carolina. Trgovac,
the Packers' defensive
line coach, was Peppers'


Defensive line: Smith's defense is
predicated on the four down linemen
getting pressure on the quarterback.
If you can't rush the passer, you won't
play much for the Bucs.
All-Pro tackle Gerald McCoy is the
Bucs'best pass rusher. But he had little
help. So the Bucs signed end Michael
Johnson, the third-best free agent
regardless of position, according to nfl.
corn, to a five-year, $43.5 million ($24
million guaranteed) deal.
Johnson, the Bengals'franchise
player in 2013, saw his sack total
plunge from 11 to 3/ last season. A
big factor was the season-ending injury
to tackle Geno Atkins. But he still was
disruptive, knocking down nine passes
and recording 61 pressures.
At 6 feet 7,270 pounds, Johnson is
long and lean and built in the Simeon
Rice mode. What's more, a big selling
point was the success other ends have
had in Smith's system.
iWe did some things in Cincinnati
- some things against the run -
that didn't always lend itself to rushing
the passer:'Johnson said."l can't wait
to play in this system and just let it
all go!'
The Bucs doubled down by
signing Seahawks nose tackle Clinton
McDonald, who had 5 sacks last

Offensive line: Smith and Licht
believed most of last season's line
underperformed while being overpaid.
They didn't believe Joseph was the
same player coming off a torn patellar
tendon in his right knee.
Penn would have counted for about
$7.5 million against the 2014 salary

cap but played poorly last season,
especially down the stretch. The Bucs
also weren't comfortable having a left

defensive line coach as
a rookie in 2002 and his
defensive coordinator
from 2003 through 2008.

Browns sign RB Tate:
Ben Tate was on the Browns'radar for
months. He's now on their roster.
Tate signed a two-year, $7 million
free agent deal with Cleveland, which
has been desperate to find a quality
every-down running back since trading
Trent Richardson to Indianapolis early
last season. Tate, who spent the past
four years with Houston, fills the void
and the 25-year-old is excited to begin
a new chapter of his career with the

Spikes, Dixon newest
additions in Buffalo: Running
back Anthony Dixon is looking forward
to carving a role for himself in Buffalo's
talented backfield and teaming up with
Buffalo's most significant free-agent
addition, linebacker Brandon Spikes.
Both players agreed to terms on
free-agent deals with the Bills late
Friday night.
Joining the Bills on a one-year
contract, Spikes gives the Bills a phys-
ical, imposing presence in the middle
of their defense. The 26-year-old is
known for his ability to stop the run,
addressing one of Buffalo's weakest
areas from last season. Spikes had 86
tackles and one forced fumble last
season in New England, his fourth with
the Patriots.

Raiders agree to deal
with S Young: Oakland agreed
on a two-year deal to keep free-
agent safety Usama Young after an
injury-shortened first year in Oakland.
Agent Andy Simms said on Twitter
thatYoung will sign the deal to stay in
Oakland. The Raiders have not made an
announcement because the contract
has not yet been signed. Oakland also
formally announced that running back
Darren McFadden signed his one-year
contract to return to the team.

AP sources say Vikings,
Johnson agree on new
contract: Two people with direct
knowledge of the deal told The
Associated Press that Minnesota and
left guard Charlie Johnson agreed to
terms on a two-year contract worth as
much as $5 million. Johnson has played
the last three seasons with the Vikings,
starting all but one game, due to an
elbow injury last November. His return
means the entire offensive line will be
intact for a third straight year.

tackle with $600,000 in weight clauses.
So the Bucs signed the Bengals'
Anthony Collins, who started only
seven games at left tackle last
season and 25 in six seasons. But he
allowed only 12 hurries among his
317 pass-block situations, according
to, the best
efficiency among all tackles.
Finally, the Bucs signed Packers
center/guard Evan Dietrich-Smith. That
means Jeremy Zuttah, set to earn $4.5
million, could be traded or released.
"We're all learning together,"Licht
said."When you have a whole new
coaching staff, all bets are off. You're
starting from scratch. We like the
fact we're doing this together with
guys looking for fresh starts and new

Quarterback: Josh McCown
was, arguably, the best quarterback
available after his career year with the
Bears, during which he went 3-2 as a
starter with 13 touchdowns and one
McCown's relationship with
Smith was a big selling point, and he
immediately was named the starter.
He turns 35 on July 4, so he isn't the
quarterback of the future. But he has
been battled-tested, and it all finally
clicked last season.
"There was just peace. You know
what? I can do it;'said McCown, whose
previous starting job came with the
Raiders in 2007.
"I've always been a confident person.
But you go/Man, when am I going to
put it all together?'Life is all these slices
of moments, and it's just this moment
that came together. The coaching, my
journey, losing games in Oakland and
winning games, playing in Oakland, that
experience helped me (in 2013). I value
everything that has happened!'

Cornerback: With Revis out,
the Bucs made a save in the Titans'
Alterraun Verner, who can play man

or zone. Last season, he had five
interceptions and was named to the
Pro Bowl. SP Page 3

ice Sabres
- Frans Nielsen and
Kyle Okposo scored
first-period goals, and
the New York Islanders
went on to a 4-1 victory
over the Buffalo Sabres on
Saturday night.
The Islanders (26-34-9)
earned their 10th home
win (10-17-8), and did it
in a rare matchup against
an opponent they are
ahead of in the standings.
Backup goalie Anders
Nilsson (3-4-2) earned
the win in his 15th NHL
game. He lost his shutout
bid 56 seconds into the
third when Tyler Ennis
scored a power-play goal.
But the Islanders'
two-goal lead was
restored 39 seconds
later when Ryan Strome
scored his fourth goal.
Cal Clutterbuck added an
empty-netter with 2:13
Nilsson made 33 saves
while subbing for No.
1 netminder Evgeni
Nabokov, who lost 4-3 to
San Jose on Friday.
Jhonas Enroth stopped
34 shots for Buffalo.

Flyers 4, Penguins 0: In
Philadelphia, Matt Read scored a pair
of goals to lift the Flyers past short-
handed Pittsburgh. Scott Hartnell
and Vincent Lecavalier also scored for
Philadelphia, which is in the middle
of a tightly bunched pack of teams
battling for a playoff spot.

Bruins 5, Hurricanes
1: In Boston, Jarome Iginla scored
a pair of goals, backup goaltender
Chad Johnson made 29 saves and the
Eastern Conference-leading Bruins
won their eighth straight. Milan Luckic
had a goal and two assists, Torey Krug
and Chris Kelly each scored a goal and
David Krejci added three assists.

Wall scored 33 points,
Drew Gooden got 11 of
his 21 in the final quarter
and the Wizards overcame
a 10-point fourth-quarter
deficit for a 101 -94 win
over the Brooklyn Nets on
Saturday night.
Gooden's 3-pointer
broke a 94-94 tie with
2:37 left. Trevor Ariza then
scored off an offensive
rebound with 44 seconds
left and Wall capped it
with dunk.
The Nets, who went the
final 6:22 without a field
goal, were led by Marcus
Thornton's 19 points. Joe
Johnson added 16 and
Paul Pierce had 15.
Washington completed
a sweep of the season
series (3-0) and moved
ahead of Brooklyn for
fifth place in the Eastern
Trailing 82-72 early in
the fourth, the Wizards
went on a 15-4 run
keyed by Gooden (8 of
11 from the field) and Al
Harrington started
things off when he scored
four points and picked up
a steal that led to a basket
by Bradley Beal.
Then with the Wizards
trailing by three, Gooden
hit a layup and then a

jumper from the wing that
gave Washington an 87-86
lead, its first of the half.

Knicks 115, Bucks 94: In
New York, Carmelo Anthony scored 23
points,Tim Hardaway Jr. had 20, and
the Knicks earned a season-high sixth
straight victory. Amare Stoudemire
and J.R. Smith each scored 15 for the

woes by pounding the team with the
NBA's worst record.

Hawks 97, Nuggets 92:
In Atlanta, Paul Millsap had 24 points
and 11 rebounds, Jeff Teague added 15
points and 10 assists and the Hawks
rallied for their third straight win.
Kenneth Faried finished with 25 points
and Wilson Chandler scored 12 for the
Nuggets. Kyle Korver scored 18 points
for Atlanta.

Collins signs for rest of
season with Nets: Jason Collins
has been signed for the rest of the
season by the Brooklyn Nets. The NBA's
first openly gay player had finished
his second 10-day contract, which
meant the Nets had to sign him for the
remainder of the season if they wanted
to keep him.

Pacers 112, Pistons 104,
OT: In Auburn Hills, Mich., Paul
George scored 30 points and Indiana
rallied from a 25-point second-quarter

and dominated inside,
leading Akron to the
NCAA tournament for the
first time with a 79-68 win
over Ball State in the Mid-
American Conference
championship Saturday.
Tecca, who scored 20
in the first half, added
12 rebounds for the
third-seeded Zips (23-9),
who started the season
4-4 but have won 16 of 17
and will enter the NCAAs
as one of the nation's
hottest teams.
With their first MAC
title, Akron also tied a
school record for wins in
the program's 40th year.
The Zips led by 25 in
the second half and then
withstood a late rally by
the fifth-seeded Cardinals
(18-16), playing their fifth
game in six days.

Michigan edges OSU

Beats rival

No. 8 Michigan ended
15 years of Big Ten
tournament frustration
There's still some work
to do before it can really

12-point second-half
lead against its most

swipe at the ball.
"We didn't really switch
anything up," Wilbekin
said. "We just tried to go
into an extra gear."
Florida (31-2) extended
its school-record winning
streak to 25 in a row after
being down 35-28 at
"This group has a
resiliency and a com-
petitiveness," coach
Billy Donovan said. "We
have our faults. We're
not perfect. But I've
never walked off the court
saying, 'Wow, these guys
didn't get after it, they
didn't compete.'"
Tennessee (21-12) had
a chance to post its most
impressive win of the
season. Now, its postsea-
son fate rests in the hands
of the NCAA selection
The Gators, improving
to 20-0 against SEC oppo-
nents, advanced to face
Kentucky or Georgia in

"I've seen a lot of
teams. I've watched a
lot of teams from afar,"
Tennessee coach Cuonzo
Martin said. "They're
one of the best defensive
teams in the country."
Jordan McRae led
Tennessee with 15 points,
while Jarnell Stokes had
13 points and seven
The final minutes were
marred by a number
of questionable calls,
including a technical
on Tennessee's Jeronne
Maymon for disputing
that he threw a shoulder.
It was the fifth foul on
Maymon, knocking him
out of the game with
more than 4 1-2 minutes
remaining after he scored
10 points and grabbed
nine rebounds.
Then with just over a
minute left, there was a
long break while the of-
ficials went to the replay
to rule on a potential
flagrant foul against
Wilbekin, even though
it wasn't even clear if he
touched a Tennessee
player while swinging his
arms high.
"I think my elbow
nicked his chin a little
bit," Wilbekin said with a
slight grin. "He did a good
job of selling it."

in the closing seconds
for its first tourney win
against No. 24 Ohio State,
"We weren't thinking
about winning the Big
Ten Conference champi-
onship, the tournament,"
Big Ten player of the year
Nik Stauskas said. "We
were thinking about just
beating Ohio State. This
is a rivalry game."
For the Big Ten regu-
lar-season champs, it was
a big moment.
Michigan (25-7) hadn't
won a semifinal game
since 1998, when it won
the inaugural tourney
title only to vacate
it because of NCAA
rules violations. Since
then, the Wolverines
hadn't even won two


consecutive games in
the league tourney and
had lost all six times it
played the Buckeyes in
Indianapolis or Chicago.
Not this time.
The top-seeded
Wolverines started the
game with an offensive
flurry and ended it
with a stout defensive
stretch that ended with
Buckeyes guard Aaron
Craft losing control of
the ball as he tried a
3-pointer that could have
forced overtime. Instead,
the Wolverines came
up with the loose ball
to eliminate the confer-
ence's defending tourney
Stauskas finished
with 18 points. Ohio
native Caris LeVert had

17 points and seven
rebounds and Glenn
Robinson III wound up
with 11 points, including
two free throws that gave
Michigan the lead for
good with 2:55 to play.
The Wolverines won
their seventh straight
in large part because
theywere 12 of 23 on
3-pointers against the Big
Ten's top-rated 3-point
defense and didn't allow
a basket over the final
four minutes.
The only thing sweet-
er than beating the
Buckeyes would be win-
ning today's title game
against No. 22 Michigan
State. The Wolverines
won both games
against the third-seeded
Spartans this season.

Wisconsin guard Josh Gasser (21) battles for a rebound against Michigan State's Branden Dawson
as Wisconsin forward Duje Dukan tries to help in the first half of Saturday's Big Ten semifinal in
Indianapolis. Michigan State won 83-75.

Bay Rays outfielder Wil
Myers left Saturday's
game against the
Pittsburgh Pirates with a
right quad contusion.
Myers suffered the
injury when he fouled
a pitch off of his right
quad during the third
inning in the Rays' split-
squad game against the
Pittsburgh Pirates. He
was removed from the
game for precautionary
"I feel fine, and it's just
a bruise-a little sore

morning and we'll let the
trainers make a decision."
It appeared Myers was
initially in great pain,
screaming after the injury.
Though it remained sore,
Myers said most of the
pain subsided.
"I might play tomor-
row, who knows," Myers
said. "I probably would
have stayed in if it was a
normal, regular season
game. I just want to be
cautious about something
like this."
Manager Joe Maddon,

half of the Rays' split-
squad game in Port

might feel even better.

looking for improvement with the
changeup he's been working on this
spring. Manager Joe Maddon said
he has liked a lot of what he's seen
from Bedard so far, including his
stuff and his mechanics.
"The thing you cannot under-
state with him is the experience,"
Maddon said. "He's a very calm guy
out there. He's a very calm pitcher.
I like that."
Jake Odorizzi and Cesar Ramos
- Bedard's competition for the
job also pitched on Saturday.
Odorizzi gave up one run on one
hit over 32/3 innings in the other
half of the Rays' split-squad game

against the Pittsburgh Pirates in
Bradenton, and Ramos followed
him by giving up two runs on four
hits over 5 1/3 innings.
Those results aren't going to sway
Maddon', though. The manager
said the Rays weren't going to make
a decision on Saturday, and he
maintained all three pitchers could
get another turn before a final
decision is made.
"I couldn't even tell you what
(Bedard's) ERA is, I couldn't even
tell you what his innings pitched
are, walks to strikeouts. Same with
Ramos and (Odorizzi)," Maddon
said. "That's where these guys get
hung up sometimes.... It's so much
different for us."
For Bedard, that only makes his
job easier.
"I'll just do what I can," Bedard
said. "The decision is theirs. They'll
do what they want, and that's fine
with me."

SARASOTA Baltimore
Orioles third baseman
Manny Machado, who is
rehabbing from left knee
surgery in October, has
not run in five days due
to discomfort caused by
the breaking up of scar
tissue a setback that
makes an already opti-
mistic return by opening
day seem even more
"Certainly, it looks (like
Opening Day is out). I'm
not there yet," Orioles
manager Buck Showalter
said. "I'm not going to
throw that wet blanket
over that yet. I know
Manny's not."
Showalter said although
it may seem ominous,
the delay in running is a
precautionary measure
and something that can
occur with these type
of surgeries. He added
that Machado seemed
to be in good spirits on
Saturday morning and
that he could be "back
in the flow" of his rehab
program in the next few

SARASOTA South Korean
right-hander Suk-min Yoon threw one
shutout inning in his debut with the
Baltimore Orioles, who got a home run
from Chris Davis in a 2-1 victory over a
New York Yankees'split-squad Saturday.
The 27-year-oldYoon didn't exactly
face a Murderer's Row ofYankees, who
sent most of their stars to Panama for
an exhibition game. Yoon earned the
win when Davis homered off Mark
Montgomery in the bottom half. Davis
has three homers in 22 at-bats.
Yoon's first pitch was clocked at 91
mph. On his next offering, Flores laced
a looper to left.
"My control was better than
expected, and I my fastball was 2 mph
faster than I expected,"Yoon said.

"The way I understand
it, it's scar tissue that
flared up and got a little
sore and we decided not
to push it, which is
what we talked about all
along," Showalter said.
"We are not going to push
it to the point where it
ends up being something.
We want to resolve this.
The trainers have talked
to the doctors, you expect
that (scar tissue release).
The surgery side, the
knee and everything, feels
great. That's been the
most encouraging part."
Machado had surgery
on Oct. 14 and at the time
the recovery period was
considered between four
and six months. The end
of that spectrum takes
him into mid-April. Both
Machado and the Orioles
have said throughout the

Opening Day, Machado
is hoping to be re-evalu-
ated by his surgeon, Neal
ElAttrache, next week.
Because he isn't running
currently and wouldn't be
able to be fully evaluated,
that appointment won't
happen at least until after
Tuesday, when ElAttrache
returns to Los Angeles. It's
likely it will be later than
that. A new appointment
has not been scheduled,
the club said.
Consequently, that
pushes back his timeline
to be cleared for playing
in games, which seeming-
ly would make it difficult
for Machado to regain his
timing at the plate by the
end of the month.

Evelyn Lozado is expecting a child. "At

Kyle Busch, Bristol beast

He earns his

16th career

win at track


BRISTOL, Tenn. Kyle
Busch got his 16th career
win at Bristol Motor
Speedway more than
any other NASCAR driver
at any other track by
holding off Kyle Larson
after a late restart in
Saturday's Nationwide
Series race.
Busch has won three
consecutive Nationwide
Series races at Bristol
since last March, when he
and Larson also went 1-2
to the finish.
Of his 16 national wins
at Bristol, five are in the
Sprint Cup Series, seven
are Nationwide and four
are in the Truck Series.
"I definitely like com-
ing to Bristol, I always
have," said Busch, who
made his first trip to the
.533-mile bulking in 2004
testing with Hendrick
"I've definitely gone
through some trials with
the Cup cars. First couple
times here was a rough
go-around for me. Sort
of got it figured out, was
able to start leading laps,
start winning races and
that's been the biggest
things. Why that is? I don't
know. I just enjoy coming
to racing. To the banked

Kyle Busch poses with the trophy after winning the I
Nationwide series race at Bristol Motor Speedway on
in Bristol, Tenn.

tracks. It takes guts to go
Busch has 65 career
Nationwide Series wins.
On Saturday, he and Joe
Gibbs Racing teammate
Matt Kenseth combined
to lead 298 of the 300 laps.
But Kenseth was mired
in lapped traffic once
Busch got out front.
"There were seven or
eight (cars) that were
really struggling today, so
you caught them a lot,"
Kenseth said. "Every 25
laps it seemed you would
catch the same group. It
was tough to get through
there. Once he got the
lead, it was hard to beat
Kevin Harvick was
second on the restart


i Saturday

with nine laps to go,
but pole-sitter Larson
got by him with seven
laps remaining to try
to challenge Busch for
the victory. He didn't get
much of a chance and
settled for second.
"I just tried to run hard
and I know (Larson) was
running the top, he loves
the top," Busch said. "I
knew he was going to be
up there. I tried to perfect
that a little bit earlier in
the race, but it seemed
like anybody who was
behind me on the restart
would be able to jump the
two guys that were on the
Harvick was third and
Ryan Blaney was fourth.
Kenseth was fifth after

leading a race-high 178
Busch led four times for
120 laps.

Hamilton takes pole at
Australian GP: In Melbourne,
Australia, Mercedes driver Lewis
Hamilton claimed pole position
for Formula One's season-opening
Australian Grand Prix in a rain-hit
qualifying session, while four-time
world champion Sebastian Vettel will
start the race from 12th after being
caught out by the wet conditions.
Vettel was joined by fellow
big-name drivers Kimi Raikkonen
and Jenson Button in dropping out of
qualifying in the second session as they
struggled on the wet surface at the
Albert Park street circuit.
While Vettel struggled, his new Red
Bull teammate Daniel Ricciardo thrived,
qualifying second, three tenths of a
second behind Hamilton's pole time.
Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg
qualified third, ahead of McLaren's
Kevin Magnussen and Ferrari's
Fernando Alonso.

Cruz Pedregon tops
Funny Car qualifying: In
Gainesville, Cruz Pedregon topped
Funny Car qualifying in the NHRA
Gatornationals for the third year in a
row and fifth time overall, powering to
a 4.068-second run at 308.21 mph in
his Toyota Camry.
The 1998 Gainesville winner will
open today against 16-time world
champion John Force.
Shawn Langdon led in Top Fuel,
Dave Connolly topped the Pro Stock
field, and Michael Ray was the fastest
in Pro Stock Motorcycle. Langdon
improved his leading time from Friday
with a 3.776 at 320.58, Connolly had
a 6.476 at 213.98 from Friday, and Ray
finished at 6.793 at 197.74 on a Buell.

Robert Garrigus hits his tee shot on the 11th hole during the
third round of the Valspar Championship on Saturday at
Innisbrook in Palm Harbor.

Garrigus' lead

shrinks to 1 shot

Robert Garrigus missed
two short putts on the
back nine and had to
settle for a 1-under 70
and a one-shot lead
Saturday in the Valspar
Garrigus, who needs a
win to get into the Masters
next month, opened with
back-to-back birdies on
the Copperhead course at
Innisbrook and stretched
his lead to four shots
with a nifty flop shot off
the pine straw to set up a
birdie on the par-5 fifth.
He had a four-shot lead
when he missed a 4-foot
par putt on the 12th, and
his lead was down to a
single shot when Garrigus
missed a 3-foot par putt
on the final hole. Kevin Na
chipped in for birdie on
the 15th and shot a 68.
Garrigus was at 8-under
"I had fun," Garrigus
said. "I'm in a good posi-
tion. If I play a good round
tomorrow, if I shoot under
par, they're going to have
to come get me."
The final group was put
on the clock on the back
nine, and Na received a

bad time on the 13th tee.
Na was so deliberate that
the final group at times
was two holes behind
along the back nine,
though they finished in
just under four hours.
Garrigus paid the price,
He was given a bad time
for the first time in his
career, shocking because
he is among the fastest
players on tour. In this
case, he had a tough lie
in the rough on the 14th
hole and walked up to the
green to gauge his op-
tions. That led to the bad
time, and Garrigus said
he didn't bother looking
at his next shot as long as
he normally would have.
It was a long putt that ran
some 15 feet by the hole,
but he made that for par.

Canizares fires 69 for
6-shot lead: In Agadir, Morocco,
Alejandro Canizares of Spain extended
his lead to six strokes in the third round
of the Trophee Hassan II after shooting
a 3-under 69.
Leading since the first round,
Canizares made four birdies and a bogey.
He's at 17-under 199 heading into the
final round. Seve Benson of England
remained in second place despite
carding a 74. He holed four birdies to
offset three bogeys and a triple bogey.

Last weekend I was privileged to
attend a 3-day seminar designed
to train new presidents of Rotary
Clubs. My club, Charlotte Harbor
Rotary, has seen fit to elect me pres-
ident for the coming year starting
July 1. There was a time when a trip
to a hotel in Orlando was something
special, but I guess the years and
the many times that I have gone to
major cities including Orlando -
on business trips have dampened
my enthusiasm.
The trip was uneventful until we
got close to Walt Disney World. Our
new Ford has the factory navigation
system, and I had entered the ad-
dress of the Buena Vista Palace and
followed the navigation commands.
It took us in the back way to Disney
World. I thought this was great
because it took us around the traffic
backup on Interstate 4.
It was nice ride until I came to
an intersection and the computer
told me that I had arrived at my
destination. This was good but there
was nothing there. I checked my
GPS, and it told me that I needed a
different disk. Apparently Disney is
not in the United States and Canada
map that is on my disk. Well, it is a
different world.
Arriving at the hotel, we registered
for the President-Elect Training
Seminar (PETS). It was amazing
because suddenly I was surrounded
with 400 people who had the same
job and title. We had three classes

Finding a rhythm and routine


I can't say my first Lenten week of
getting up early and practicing yoga
and meditating was a smashing suc-
cess but I can't say it was a complete
failure, either.
The plan for day one was, to get up,
change into my gym clothes and do
some light yoga before starting my day,
bright and early. I had originally set my
alarm for 6 a.m. The cats woke me up
about 10 minutes before, demanding
to be fed.
"Just stay up," I told myself as I
stumbled to the kitchen, lagging
behind a feline stampede of four. "Get
the yoga mat and get moving."
But the house was too cold and dark,
the sky too gray and misty, and my bed
too warm, soft and seductive. I reset
the alarm to 7 a.m.
"You'll still be getting up earlier than
normal," I told myself as I close my
eyes and pull the covers up to my chin.
It seemed my head had just hit the
pillow when the screeching, ear-shat-
tering alarm went off. I jumped, and
my cat Sadie who had come back to
bed and curled up against my stom-
ach without me noticing let out a
startled yowl of protest. I hit the alarm
before I groaned and got out of bed.
"Where do you think you're going?"
Sadie's sleepy, half-lidded eyes seemed
to say as she stared at me. Had she
dismissed the 98.6 degree personal
bed warmer yet? No one can give you a
look of contempt quite like a cat.
"Don't look at me like that," I grum-
bled. I look at my dresser top. I had
forgotten to lay out my gym clothes.
"Fine," I think. "I'll do it in my
pajamas. They're comfortable."
The house was lighter at least. Okay,
this will help. Ease into it. It's still early.
I stumble to my bedroom door
and open it to discover Mom already
awake and the TV already on. I
wasn't ready for any sound, let the very
pinnacle of insipidness that is morning
talk shows. What is it with baby boom-
ers and TV? I think comedian Denis
Leary is right: Ever since Lee Harvey
Oswald was shot on live TV, they're
afraid to turn it off.
"What are you doing up so early?"
Mom asked.
With all the pleasantness of a bear
just awoken from hibernation, I
respond with a cross between a growl
and a groan as I dragged the yoga mat
behind me onto the lanai. I haven't
had coffee yet, I mentally grumbled.
Or breakfast, my stomach piped in
with a growl of its own. I slide the door
shut to block out the TV
I lay the mat on the lanai, by the
pool. Water, my good, calming friend, I

think as I stare at the stillness of it. I sit,
simple cross-legged, trying to urge my
back to showing some evidence there's
a spine in there. It responds with all
the erectness of an invertebrate.
"Okay," I think. "Just look and listen
for a minute and breathe."
And really, it's quite soothing. The lot
behind me has never been developed.
A large live oak tree is canopied over
the pool cage. I can see the brick patio
and goldfish pond in the backyard
through the screens to my right. To
my left, the beautiful purplish fuschia
flowers of the orchid tree bloom.
"Purty, purty, purty, purty!" I hear
cardinals calling to each other. I take
a deep inhale in as a soft breeze blows
by. In the distance, I hear the unmis-
takable metallic call of a red-winged
black bird. I exhale out. The few
falling oak leaves rustle in the breeze.
I breathe in. I hear another bird call
I don't recognize. A warbler or some
sort? Don't know. Just breathe out.
"You know," I think. "This really isn't
bad. I've got the cardinals and the
red-winged black birds. It's March and
I'm outside in summer PJs. This is nice.
I had forgotten it was garbage day.
The sound of an engine that big and
a door that heavy slamming can wake
me up when I'm in the house. And I'm
just starting to practice yoga again. I
am far from having the concentration
skills of a master.
"It's okay," I tell myself. It will pass.
And it does. Just in time for an ambu-
lance to come flying down the street,
sirens blaring.
I open one eye and look up the sky.
"I can only quote Bruce
Springsteen," I say to God. "'Someday
we'll look back and this will all seem
funny.' But on my first day? Really?"
The ambulance passes quickly, too.
It's me and the cardinals again. Until
I hear a frantic tapping against the
sliding glass door. Connor, my little
stub-tailed cat, is standing on his hind
legs, frantically scratching with his
front paws. Oh, he's seen the human
do yoga before but outside? At this
hour? Surely, I need to be monitored.
I let Connor out and plop back on
the mat. Okay. Ready really. I'm
gonna do this, slowly.
Usually, I like to practice ashtanga,
a discipline known for its athleticism
and intense physicality, according
to Yoga Journal. Developed by Sri K.
Pattabhi Jois, "this method of yoga
involves synchronizing the breath with
a progressive series of postures a
process producing intense internal
heat and a profuse, purifying sweat
that detoxifies muscles and organs.
The result is improved circulation,

a light and strong body, and

Addressing addiction: An evening with Dr. Victor DeNoble

Tom Cappiello

I was diagnosed with stage 3A locally advanced
adenocarcinoma (nonsmall cell lung cancer) in
October of 2007. 1 am one of the few survivors of
this terminal disease.
My diary is written to give cancer patients hope and
understanding about life after a cancer diagnosis.
This is for those who are being treated for cancer
and those caring for a loved one.
If you are interested in becoming involved in lung
cancer awareness, research and early detection,

You don't have to be a social
scientist to know that substance
abuse (of all kinds) is rampant in this
country and the bane of our society.
Sadly, things seem to be getting worse
instead of better.
How does the movement to legiti-
mize recreational marijuana use, for
example, improve our society and
culture? Aren't we just becoming
increasingly enslaved to various kinds
of addictions? I understand the many
arguments for legalizing pot, but I
don't see how legalized use and the
potential for abuse of yet another
substance is going to make us a
better people or society.
We ought to recognize that drug
and alcohol abuse and addiction has
the corrosive potential to destroy
our society and weaken our country.
In college, I studied Chinese history
and learned how opium addiction
destroyed China, resulting in what
the Chinese today call "their century
of humiliation." Starting in the late
1700s, the British East India Trading
Company sought to monopolize
opium exports from India and sell
the product to China in return for
silver. The British mixed the drug
with tobacco that was consumed in
opium dens throughout the country.
Opium addiction aided the British
in eventually subjugating China and
expanding their empire through the
Opium Wars.
"Couldn't happen here," you say.
Maybe, but have you noticed the
latest craze for vapor or electronic

cigarettes the supposedly sater
cigarette? Vapor retailers are suddenly
popping up all over town. What do
you suppose is in the vapor that
makes these devices suddenly so
popular? Who do you think is behind
the promotion of these unregulated
devices and why?
Rather than arguing over whether
or not we should legitimize any
substances that are injurious to our
health and mental well-being, should
we not be fighting to fund research
to better understand the science of
addiction and how certain substances
alters the brain? Imagine what our
world would be like if we could find a
way to overcome addiction and cure
substance abuse.
We now know that there is a link
between the repeated uses of an
addictive substance and how the
human brain experiences pleasure.
One time use has a pleasing reward,
leading to further and more frequent
use. The addictive substance be
it nicotine, alcohol or some drug -
actually causes physical changes in
nerve cells in the brain. After a while,
the user of an addictive substance
does not get the same pleasure and
has to increase the dosage as the
body's tolerance to the substance
increases. Eventually, the user no
longer experiences pleasure from
the substance they are using. They
take it simply to prevent withdrawal

Department of Health in Charlotte
County, Fawcett Memorial Hospital,
South Florida Ford Dealers and
others to bring Dr. Victor DeNoble
to our community to speak about
addiction. His presentation, called
"Inside the Dark Side," is part of an
educational effort to help prevent
tobacco use and substance abuse
among our children and to encourage
smoking cessation and lung cancer
screening among adults. It's an effort
to de-stigmatize lung cancer and
put the blame for tobacco addiction
where it belongs with the purvey-
ors of tobacco products.
The majority of Charlotte County
youth do not use addictive substanc-
es. As a community we want to help
them stay tobacco- and drug-free.
Anyone who wants to support a
healthier Charlotte County should
come to learn about the science of
addiction and how economic forces
have promoted addiction, to the
detriment of public health.

It's allergy season all year long in Florida


There may be nothing that quite
strikes fear into the heart of allergy
sufferers in Florida like the site of
their cars covered in fluorescent pine
And while it shows ups like yel-
low-green ominous sign of allergen
apocalypse, it's really a decoy.
"The pine pollen is actually a
very large particle," said Dr. Elvin
Mendez, who specializes in allergies
and immunology. "So unless you
actually have contact with it, it's not
likely to get into the nasal passages,
throat and eyes. What the pine pollen
is good for is signaling the millions
of other microscopic allergens that
are now in the air and causing the
An allergy is an overreaction or
hypersensitivity by the immune
system to an essentially harmless
foreign substance, according to the
United States National Library of
Medicine. Antibody Immunoglobulin
(IgE) interacts with a protein in the
allergen, causing the body to produce
histamines to fight the "invaders."
Inflammation is one of the common
and unpleasant side effects.
And while the rest of country has
"seasonal" allergies, anyone who
has lived in Florida for any length of
time can tell you, the season lasts 12
"We have an 'allergy year,'" Mendez
said. "The 'season' is defined by
what's blooming."
According to,
allergies in Charlotte County are
running high a 9.9 on a scale of
12. The predominant pollens are oak,
juniper and nettle. Oak and juniper
are considered to be high allergen
producers; nettle is considered to be
And as the days grow longer and
warmer, grass and weeds will be
entering the mix.
"Throughout most of the country,
May through August is when the grass
and weed allergies are the highest,"
Mendez said. "But in Florida, that's
when our mold count is 10-fold the
rest of the country."
The mold is spurred on by the



lab to develop a safer cigarette. He
succeeded in identifying a nicotine
substitute, with fewer harmful effects,
but his research was suppressed.
He was eventually fired by Phillip
Morris, and his laboratory results
were seized by the company and kept
After a decade of intimidation and
being silenced by a confidentiality
agreement, DeNoble became the
first whistleblower to testify before
Congress about the addictive proper-
ties of nicotine.
His testimony was the cornerstone
for sweeping changes in public policy
regarding tobacco use, the multi-
billion dollar tobacco settlement,
and the events leading to President

The Florida Center for Allergies & Asthma Care
suggests taking the following steps to reduce
exposure to allergens and the ensuing symptoms:
*Wear goggles and a mask when doing yard
work, especially when mowing the lawn or raking
*Use the air conditioner in your home and car. In
your home, use a high efficiency filter and change
it often.
*Avoid outdoor activities between 5 a.m. and
10 a.m., when pollen counts are the highest. If
that's not possible, shower after your activity and
throw your clothes in the hamper. Pollen sticks to
fabric. The center said people often track pollen
throughout their house without realizing it.
*For the above reason, don't dry your clothes
*See an allergist for a correct diagnosis. Once you
know what allergens trigger you, keep up on the
pollen and mold reports in your area.
*Even if you're bathed in the morning, shower
before going to bed. It will prevent you from
taking the allergens that have clung to your
hair and skin into bed with you, where you'll be
breathing them in all night.

rainy season that runs during that
time. Like the rest of the country, the
ragweed family picks up in August.
However, most ragweed will be
killed with the first frosts of autumn,
Mendez said. Florida often has to
wait until January for frost.
And while it may be tempting to
move from one area of the country
to another to escape allergies, that
strategy is likely to be only a tempo-
rary fix. For starters, pollen can travel
up to 400 miles away from its source,
Mendez said.
"If you have a genetic tendency for
allergies, usually within three years of
relocating, you'll develop new aller-
gies," Mendez said.
There are two primary tests for
allergies. One test exposes a person
to a small amount of an allergen
through a skin prick, according to the
Mayo Clinic. If a person is allergic
to a certain protein, a hive will likely
develop at the skin site.
The second test is a blood test that
measures immune response to a
specific allergen.
Mendez said the skin test is the
more accurate of the two.

Obama's signing into law the Family
Smoking Prevention and Tobacco
Control Act in 2009.
DeNoble will visit Charlotte County
Schools the first week of April to
present an educational program on
tobacco addiction for middle and
high school students.
He will also make a one-night
appearance on the Edison State
Charlotte Campus auditorium at 7
p.m. on April 3.
The evening event is aimed at
college-age students, former and
current nicotine users, and all com-
munity members interested in sup-
porting a healthier Charlotte County.

Although many drugs from over-
the-counter to prescription are
used to treat allergies, Mendez said
they only treat the symptoms. Allergy
shots, or immunotherapy, contain a
small amount of the allergen specific
to an allergy sufferer. The amount
contains just enough allergens
to stimulate the immune system,
according to the Mayo Clinic, but not
enough to cause a "full-blown allergic
The shots are administered over a
length of months to years, and the
amount of allergens in the shot will
slowly increase. This rising tolerance
causes your body to become desensi-
tized to the allergen and should cause
the allergies to eventually diminish,
the Mayo Clinic reports.
Reactions to allergy shots are rare,
the Mayo Clinic reports, but can
range from a localized reaction like
a rash to anaphylaxis, a life-threat-
ening reaction in which experiences
a drop in blood pressure and stops
breathing. However, anaphylaxis
usually occurs within 30 minutes of
the injection, the Mayo Clinic reports.

E SMH recruits female docs to meet

need for primary care physicians


"For some time now, we've had a
national shortage of primary care
physicians," said Ilene Gilbert,
Chief Operating Officer of Sarasota
Memorial's First Physicians Group
(FPG). "More and more patients
are seeking primary care services,
especially now with the growing
aging population, and the expansion
of various insurance coverage under
the Affordable Care Act. Primary care
physicians are in very high demand."
Nationally, despite studies that
show more than half of all patient
visits are for primary care, only 7 per-
cent of the nation's medical school
graduates are choosing a primary
care career; most instead are opting
for a growing number of specialty
care careers.
One area that's feeling the crunch
for primary care is South Sarasota
Sarasota Memorial has been
addressing the shortage in the region
by recruiting primary care physicians
to its FPG network. It should be no
surprise that most of the firm's new
hires are women: Locally and nation-
ally, women make up about a third of
the physician workforce. But that is
changing as today's medical students
become tomorrow's doctors. Women
make up roughly half the class in
U.S. medical schools today.
"That's particularly true in the
OB-GYN and family medicine spe-
cialties, where many female students
are drawn by women's health issues,"
Gilbert added.
In recent months, Sarasota
Memorial welcomed three new
female physicians Drs. Meghan
Buhler, Janet Lewis and Veronica
Voloshinov to Sarasota Memorial's
First Physician Group. All are fam-
ily medicine specialists providing
primary care in medically under-
served North Port and south Sarasota
Voloshinov said that during her
medical school residency, "I noticed
classes were 80 percent female, just
because it was a family medicine res-
idency program. Women are drawn
to family medicine and primary care.
Taking care of the whole family unit
is very attractive to me, personally."
Sarasota Memorial also recruited
three female internal medicine spe-
cialists to join Sarasota Memorial's
Hospitalist Group in the coming
weeks Drs. Florina Cimpean,

Eugenia Samoilova-Wagoner and
Bhavana Nair. Hospitalists do not
practice in an office setting; rather
they are physicians who work in the
hospital setting, specialize in acute,
specialty and surgical care of hos-
pitalized patients who do not have
their own physician.
"First Physician Group is owned
by Sarasota Memorial Hospital," said
Kim Savage, hospital spokeswoman.
"So where we've seen gaps in primary
and specialty care in the community,
we've proactively reached out to hire
physicians. Most physicians work
in private practice and are affiliated
with and have privileges at but are
not employees of the hospital."
Most recently, several FPG prac-
tices have been recognized by the
National Committee for Quality
Assurance (NCQA) as a Level 3
Patient Centered Medical Home, a
quality designation given sparingly to
primary care groups that have trans-
formed their practices into medical
homes for patients. The medical
home concept ensures patients have
a place to go and help coordinating
all of their medical needs through
collaboration, care coordination,
communication and strong partner-
ships with patients, family members
and personal physicians.
"We're in a constant recruitment
mode, trying to attract physicians
to the Sarasota, Venice and North
Port markets," Gilbert said. "As their
volume starts to pick up and we see
more of an increase, then we'll pick
up more physicians to those offices
and those local markets."

3D printers provide new way to train surgeons


Frank J. Bova believes the future of
training physicians is being created
right now at the University of Florida
Department of Neurosurgery.
"We're going to look back a decade
from now and find that this is just
standard practice," he said. We're kind
of at the beginning of a new way of
Bova noted two major challenges in
training surgeons:
"One of the problems is that, in a
normal training scenario, you start
people out with simple things and
you build them more and more com-
plicated issues," he said. "That's the
way we taught you how to read, how
to do math. But a complicated case
may come in before the simple case
comes into clinic, so the sequence of
events isn't always as optimized as
we'd like it.
"The other problem is that when
you teach, you allow people to try
things and get them wrong and strug-
gle with them so that they build that
knowledge and get to be more expert
at it. But in teaching physicians, we
can't allow them to practice and make
Bova has found the answer to these
problems in an emerging technology
- 3D printers. Instead of producing a
flat image, as on a sheet of paper, the
3D printer builds a three-dimension-
al image layer by layer.
The printers are allowing the
researchers to take patient MRI and
CT scans, and reproduce the anatomy
in the image.
"What we're able to do now is to
take a particular patient's anatomy
that we would want to do a procedure
on, and reproduce that in the printer
using different material," Bova said.
'And then we're able to take that and
create a mixed-reality model that
has physical properties so that you
can cut it, you can drill it, you can
put probes in it, and get the proper
tactile feedback and the proper

For the residents, they're able to
practice different types of surgeries
on a model that replicates the anato-
my of the individual patient.
"The models are very detailed,"
Bova said. "If you're dealing with
a patient that has, for example,
scoliosis curvature of the spine
- we can reproduce that so that the
practicing physician has the exact
right anatomy, the right positions, the
right angles, so that they know how to
deal with the abnormal anatomy.
"The bones have to be in the right
place and the tissues have to be in
the right position. We can reproduce
all kinds of things, things inside the
head, inside the spine, the bone
structures. And we can make these
models very, very detailed so that
when we actually do the virtual
procedure, the x-rays look exactly
correct. When you're putting a needle
in, it's hitting this thing physically
inside that you would expect to hit,
and missing the things you would
expect to miss."
Different printers are used for
different types of anatomical parts.
Some print bones and use a powder
material that prints the image and
builds it layer by layer in the powder.
The material is then hardened to sim-
ulate bone. For other types of tissue,
silicon-based or rubber materials are
used to simulate muscle and other
"You can cut them and put nee-
dles into them, and spread them
apart and drill into them, and it all
feels very realistic to the practicing
surgeon so they get the right, proper
feedback," Bova explained.
The idea to harness the capability
of the 3D printers was a collabo-
rative effort. The technology had
already been actively used for other
"It's an outgrowth of clinical
practice," Bova said, "seeing what's
available new scientifically and engi-
neering-wise, and having people who
work on these common problems."

For older drivers, study finds,

one drink may be one too many


You may have only had one glass of
wine with dinner, but if you're 55 or
older, that single serving may hit you
hard enough to make you a danger-
ous driver.
So, baby boomers, what you sus-
pected is true: You can't party like you
used to.
Dr. Sara Jo Nixon, a professor in the
departments of psychiatry and psy-
chology at the University of Florida
and doctoral candidate Alfredo Sklar
tested how drinking legally nonin-
toxicating levels of alcohol affect the
driving skills of two age groups: 36
people ages 25-35 and 36 people ages
They found that although neither
age group imbibed enough alcohol to
put them over the legal driving limit,
a blood alcohol level of 0.08, just one
drink can affect the driving abilities
of older drivers. Based on the study
findings published in the journal
Psychopharmacology in February, the
researchers say it could be time to
reassess legal blood alcohol levels for
all drivers.
"These simulations have been used
a lot in looking at older adults, and
they have been used at looking how
alcohol affects the driving of younger
adults, but no one's ever looked at
the combination of aging drivers and
alcohol," Sklar said.
The study is the latest in a body
of work by Nixon and her team that
looks at how even moderate doses of
alcohol affect aging adults.
At the beginning of the study, both
groups completed a driving task
completely sober. The task took the
drivers down a simulated winding
3-mile stretch of country road. The
drivers stared straight ahead at a large
computer monitor. Two computer
monitors flanked the first, mimicking
the side windows of a car and what
the drivers would see in their periph-
eral vision. A stereo system played
driving sounds. A console included
a steering wheel and brake and gas
pedals. Occasionally, the drivers
would encounter an oncoming car,
but they did not encounter other
"There wasn't even a cow," said
Nixon, who also is co-vice chair and
chief of the division of addiction
research in the department of psy-
chiatry in the UF College of Medicine
and UF's Evelyn E and William L.
McKnight Brain Institute.
Researchers assessed the drivers'
ability to stay in the center of their
lane and maintain a constant speed.
They also looked at how rapidly they
adjusted their steering wheel.
On a later day, the groups were
further separated into groups. The

first imbibed a placebo a diet lem-
on-lime soda misted with a negligible
amount of alcohol to mimic the expe-
rience of drinking alcohol. A second
group's drink was strong enough to
produce a 0.04 percent breath alcohol
level, and a third group's drink gave
them a breath alcohol level of 0.065
percent still below the federal legal
level for drinking of 0.08.
Participants then completed the
same driving task they performed
when they were sober. Researchers
timed the task so participants' alcohol
levels were declining to mimic a situa-
tion in which individuals have a drink
with dinner and then drive home.
In younger adults, the researchers
found alcohol consumption did not
affect their measured driving skills at
all a finding that Nixon called a "bit
She warned that the absence of
effects in this laboratory setting does
not mean that young adult drivers'
driving wouldn't be affected in normal
circumstances, driving in a typical,
real-world setting. She noted that
the laboratory setting was simplified
compared with real-world driving and
that the current data don't address
potential problems in more complex
But for the older drivers, the small,
legal levels of intoxication did affect
their driving.
The researchers are evaluating
additional study results. Participants
also drove a course through a small-
town setting as well as a city setting,
complete with pedestrians, motorists
who violated traffic signs and other
challenges. Sklar and others in the
laboratory will examine brain electro-
physiological data collected through
scalp electrodes embedded in caps
that the subjects were wearing during
the drive to study how the brain
responds during the driving test when
dosed with alcohol.

Gene mapping study shows promise, challenges


These days, it's faster and cheaper
than ever to decipher a person's en-
tire DNA. But a small study suggests
that looking for disease risks that way
may not be ready for the masses.
For one thing, the research found
that gene variants most likely linked
with significant disease were the least
likely to be accurately identified.
And analyzing the mass of data
from the DNA scan is a daunting task,
researchers said.
Some experts think more targeted
gene-mapping is a better approach.
But while whole genome sequencing
is mostly done for research, it has
far-reaching potential for diagnosing
and treating genetic diseases, even
in people with no known risks. The
new results show its promise and its
Stanford University researchers
performed whole genome sequenc-
ing in 12 healthy people. Most of
the millions of genetic variants they
found were of uncertain significance,
although one woman was found to
have a high genetic risk for cancer.
DNA is recovered by a simple blood
test and deciphered by machines.
The difficulty lies in interpreting the
findings and figuring out which vari-
ants are important and which ones
can be ignored. That takes days of

sophisticated follow-up lab tests and
interpretation to reveal potentially
meaningful genetic information, the
researchers said.
Dr. Euan Ashley, a senior co-author
and Stanford associate professor of
medicine and genetics, likened the
technology to "an unruly teenager
who has grown up very fast. There's
huge potential."
"This paper is like parental tough
love we have to be really honest
about where we are in order to bring
it up to clinical standards," he said.
For the test, they used two com-
mercially available instruments to se-
quence the DNA the second one to
validate the initial findings. But less
than one-third of variants in inherit-
ed disease genes were confirmed.
Several specialists including
medical geneticists, genetic coun-
selors and a pathologist examined
the findings and recommended
follow-up tests.
Medical intervention was consid-
ered appropriate for one participant,
a woman with no family history of
breast or ovarian cancer found to
have a genetic variant strongly linked
with those diseases. That finding led
to surgery to remove her ovaries and
increased breast cancer screening.
The cost per patient was about
$17,000 plus hundreds of dollars in
follow-up tests. Some centers charge
less and the cost is expected to drop

Drug therapy may reverse memory decline in seniors


It may seem normal: As we age, we
misplace car keys, or can't remember
a name we just learned or a meal we
just ordered. But University of Florida
(UF) researchers say memory trouble
doesn't have to be inevitable, and
they've found a drug therapy that
could potentially reverse this type of
memory decline.
The drug can't yet be used in
humans, but the researchers are
pursuing compounds that could
someday help the population of aging
adults who don't have Alzheimer's or
other dementias but still have trouble
remembering day-to-day items. Their
findings are published in the March 5
issue of the Journal of Neuroscience.
The kind of memory responsible
for holding information in the mind
for short periods of time is called
"working memory." Working memory
relies on a balance of chemicals in
the brain. The UF study shows this
chemical balance tips in older adults,
and working memory declines. The
reason? It could be because their
brains are producing too much of a
chemical that slows neural activity.
"Graduate student Cristina
Banuelos' work suggests that cells that
normally provide the brake on neural

activity are in overdrive in the aged
prefrontal cortex," said researcher Dr.
Jennifer Bizon, an associate professor
in the department of neuroscience
and a member of UF's Evelyn E &
William L. McKnight Brain Institute.
This chemical, an inhibitory brain
neurotransmitter called GABA, is
essential. Without it, brain cells can
become too active, similar to what
happens in the brains of people with
schizophrenia and epilepsy.
A normal level of GABA helps
maintain the optimal levels of cell
activation, said collaborator Dr. Barry
Setlow, an associate professor in
UF's departments of psychiatry and
Working memory underlies many
mental abilities and is sometimes
referred to as the brain's mental
sketchpad, Bizon said. For example,
he noted, you use your working
memory in many everyday activities
such as calculating your final bill at
the end of dining at a restaurant. Most
people can calculate a 15 percent tip
and add it to the cost of their meal
without pencil and paper. Central
to this process is the ability to keep
multiple pieces of information in
mind for a short duration such as
remembering the cost of your dinner
while calculating the amount needed
for the tip.

As allergy season begins to kick into
high gear, many people find them-
selves running for the tissue box or
medicine cabinet to cope with runny
noses and eyes and coughing. It may
come to a surprise to some people
as they are wheezing and
congested, their pets are too,
and for the same reason t
seasonal allergies.
"We see allergies in cats
less often, but it's pretty com-
mon in dogs," said Dr. Kevin
Cronin, a veterinarian at
Charlotte Animal Hospital
in Port Charlotte. "Dogs get
a lot of contact allergies,
especially on their feet from
going on walks and coming
in contact with the grass."
The most common
symptom of an allergy in
dogs is itching of the skin
- which means there will
be a lot of scratching.
According to the ASPCA,

toms in pets can

9/11 responder combats lung disease


Watching Punta Gorda resident
Kenneth Bogue swing a golf club,
you'd never know he had undergone
a 23-day hospital stay due to a dou-
ble-lung transplant surgery.
Upon closer inspection, you can see
the scar lines just above his polo-shirt
button mark. The scars are part of a
long road of recovery.
Bogue's lung condition was ac-
quired back in 2001. Because he was a
second responder working for FEMA,
he arrived at New York's World Trade
Center immediately after the epic
event on 9/11.
He worked in a continual cloud
of vaporized concrete, drywall, lead
and asbestos, diesel exhaust from
construction crews, and other toxic
substances. Every day at shift's end, he
would return to his allotted hotel with
soot and ashes covering his shoes
and clothes. To Bogue, the smell of
rottenness and lingering ash was just
a minor nuisance.
Months later and back at home,
he started to think that his new-
found malaise and fatigue could be
due to his service in New York. He
stopped worrying about his health
when Hurricane Charley hit on Aug.
13, 2004. Again staying busy with
FEMA duties, he helped coordinate
the response to the disaster by pro-
viding safety measures and public
Continually, his health declined
and he sought medical help but
diagnostic tests proved nothing. Years
later, other physicians confirmed that
he acquired severe pulmonary fibrosis
due to his diligent service.
Pulmonary fibrosis, which is a
condition that affects deep lung
tissue, eventually deteriorated his
system. His lungs became thick, stiff
and scarred resulting in lack of oxygen
transport throughout his body.
Bogue was told his condition would
worsen over time and is not revers-
ible. What's more, he would need a
double-lung transplant.

To get him in shape before his
surgery, he was referred to pulmonary
rehab at Port Charlotte Rehab Center.
"Therapy for me was life-altering,"
said Bogue. He said that he was
given new breathing techniques that
improved his ability to function.
Never a quitter, he endured months of
pulmonary therapy before his surgery.
Surgery came on April 14, 2013, and
he spent 22 days in the hospital -
including 11 in intensive care.
In the hospital, he was instructed
to frequently cough. Even though it
was painful, coughing was a necessary
function to help clear inflammatory
fluid from his lungs. A nurse showed
him how to hold a pillow tightly near
his incision site to decrease pain while
he coughed.
Frequently, he was given lung
function tests. Medical staff was also
watching him for signs of the two
main complications of lung transplant
surgery rejection and infection.
Rejection happens when the
immune system sets out an alarm
that the transplanted lungs are a
"foreign object," and starts attacking
the new tissue. To counteract this
circumstance, Bogue is on a lifetime
prescription of medicines that will
dampen his immune system. But the
medications continually weaken his
immunity. In fact, he developed two
serious lung infections months after
surgery. He was strong enough to pull
out of respiratory illness and undergo
two more surgeries.
On May 6, 2013, he had gall bladder
removal surgery. One month later, he
had surgery to tighten his stomach to
prevent acid reflex.
Things are now looking good for
Bogue. He said he's back in pul-
monary therapy and most recently
cleared for getting back to golf and
into his pool.
To Bogue's surprise, the hardest part
of rehabilitation was not his respi-
ratory function. Due to his lengthy
surgery, he came out of it with debili-
tating back and neck pain.
"Overall, I want people to know
that there's hope and health even

New studies suggest caution regarding therapy to boost'low T'

Mass marketing of testosterone
therapy may have men eager to try
this seemingly simple fix. But the lat-
est science should have them scratch-
ing their heads and putting away the
credit card at least for now.
A new study published in the online
journal PLOS One shows an increase
in the risk of having a heart attack in
the months after starting testosterone
therapy. The potential for danger
was highest in older men. A report
in the Nov. 6, 2013, issue of JAMA
showed that men who used testoster-
one therapy didn't fare as well after
artery-opening angioplasty as men
who didn't take testosterone.
A word of warning about these
reports: Neither was the type of study
that can prove cause and effect. They
can only show associations, or links.
That means there's no smoking gun
here that testosterone therapy is
harmful. But the studies do suggest
In January, the U.S Food and Drug
Administration announced it would
look into possible links between
testosterone therapy and heart attack,
stroke, or death in men taking FDA-
approved testosterone products. In an
announcement, it urged health care
professionals to "consider whether
the benefits of FDA-approved testos-
terone treatment is likely to exceed
the potential risks of treatment."
Millions of American men use a

gel, patch or injection to boost their
testosterone levels. Getting extra
testosterone can help those with truly
low testosterone that's causing prob-
lems such as loss of bone and muscle
or a low sex drive. What it can do for
men with borderline low testosterone,
or those without symptoms, is up in
the air.
As the February 2014 Harvard Men's
Health Watch reports: "The ongoing
pharmaceutical marketing blitz
promises that treating 'low T' this
way can make men feel more alert,
energetic, mentally sharp, and sexu-
ally functional." What it doesn't point
out are the possible risks, according
to Daniel Pendick, the newsletter's
executive editor.
Testosterone doesn't immediately
agree with a small number of men.
They quickly develop acne, enlarged
or tender breasts, or swelling in the
ankles. In some men, testosterone
causes an overproduction of red
blood cells, which can increase the
risk of developing blood clots inside
arteries or veins.
The long-term risks aren't really
known. As the articles described
above suggest, taking extra testos-
terone could pose problems for the
heart. There are also worries that
testosterone therapy could stimulate
the growth of prostate cancer. But the
evidence is mixed. Some studies, in
fact, have shown that men taking tes-
tosterone have fewer heart problems.
The link between testosterone therapy
and prostate cancer is also murky.

What's needed is a randomized,
placebo-controlled trial, in which
some men get testosterone and others
get an inert substitute. In such a trial
no one except some record keepers
know who is getting what not the
volunteers or their doctors. If such a
trial is done and it is large enough and
lasts long enough, we should get clear
answers on the benefits and risks of
testosterone therapy. This wouldn't
come fast, or cheap.
The Women's Health Initiative,
which tested in this way the benefits
and risks of hormone therapy for
women, took years and cost millions
of dollars.
Until such a trial is done, what's a
man to do in the face of such uncer-
tainty? Take a cautious approach,
advises the Harvard Men's Health
1. Take stock of your health first.
There may be other reasons than your
testosterone level for fatigue, a low
sex drive, erectile dysfunction, and
other symptoms attributable to low
2. Get an accurate assessment. If
you or your doctor think you might
have low testosterone, have it mea-
sured between 7 a.m.-10 a.m., when
testosterone is at its daily peak. Then
confirm the result with a second test
on a different day.
3. Be mindful of unknown risks.
Ask your doctor to explain the various
side effects for the different formu-
lations of testosterone, such as gels,
patches and injections. Know what


to look for if something goes wrong.
And approach testosterone therapy
with caution if you are at high risk
for prostate cancer; have severe
urinary symptoms from prostate
enlargement; or have diagnosed
heart disease, a previous heart attack,
or multiple risk factors for heart
Finally, "testosterone therapy is
not a fountain of youth," cautions
Harvard Men's Health Watch. Don't
try it in hopes of channeling your
more youthful physical or sexual self,
of living longer or healthier, or of
improving your memory or mental
sharpness. Exercising more would be
a safer and probably more effective
- approach for achieving those goals.

Learn the facts behind 'sustainable' meat labels


Consumers are interested in sus-
tainable, humanely raised meats, but
terms like organic, cage-free, and
grass-fed can confuse. Environmental
Nutrition guides you through the
meat labeling maze.
Grass-fed, organic, natural, free-
range such meat and poultry
labeling terms abound. Some su-
permarkets even promote their own
humane animal agriculture program,
such as Whole Foods Market's Global
Animal Partnership's 5-Step Animal
Welfare Rating program, which
outlines specifics on how animals are
cared for and raised.
These labels and programs are
driven by health-minded consumers
who seek wholesome meat and
poultry products, raised with limited
exposure to drugs, hormones and
pesticides, as well as in a sustainable
and humane fashion.
"Sustainably produced meats are
becoming more common, along with
consumer awareness of the impor-
tance and use of these labels. The
reasons for this increase in consumer
interest range from supporting a
reduction in the use of nontherapeu-
tic antibiotics to a general concern for
how their food is raised," said Stacia
Clinton, a registered dietitian and
healthy food program coordinator
for the global coalition Health Care
Without Harm.
In fact, 59 percent of consumers
report that they want grocery stores
to inform them about how foods,
including meats, are grown and
raised, according to a survey conduct-
ed by the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers
Food labels are intended to be
a tool to help consumers make
informed choices; however, meat
labeling claims, such as "organic" or
"natural," found in the meat case at
your supermarket may create more
confusion than clarity. The U.S. Food
and Drug Administration (FDA) pro-
hibits false and misleading statements
on food products.
Meat and poultry producers are
required to submit their claims for
review for truth and accuracy to U.S.
Department of Agriculture's (USDA)
Food Safety and Inspection Service
(FSIS) and subsequent approval
before they can be marketed.
According to Cathy Cochran, a
USDA spokesperson, USDA-FSIS
allows companies to list on their
labels that they meet a third-party
certifying organization's standards,
such as the Certified Humane Raised
and Handled Program, provided that
they can show the claims are truthful.
Follow our guide to labeling terms
for meat and poultry that pertain to
animal welfare, exposure to antibiot-
ics or hormones, and sustainability:
1. Organic: Organic meat and
poultry may carry a premium price

(up to 40 percent more), yet it's one
of the fastest growing segments in
the organic industry. Producers and
processors of domestic and import-
ed meat and poultry that carry the
organic label must be certified and
meet these standards established by
the USDA:
*Animals must be produced and
processed by a USDA-certified organ-
ic farm and processor.
*Livestock must be fed 100 percent
organically grown feed produced
without synthetic fertilizers, herbi-
cides, pesticides or genetically modi-
fied seeds, or animal by-products. The
land used to raise animals must also
adhere to these requirements.
*Animals must be raised without
the use of synthetic hormones and
vaccinations, and are not treated with
*Animals must have access to the
outdoors, and livestock and milking
cows are required to graze on pasture
for at least four months per year;
chickens must have access to the
outside, direct sunlight, fresh air, and
freedom of movement. Continuous
confinement of animals is prohibited.
2. Natural: According to the USDA-
FSIS, the term "natural" may be used
on any meat or poultry product that is
"minimally processed" and contains
no artificial ingredients, including
flavoring, added colors, chemical
preservatives or any other synthetic
Any process in which food is made
edible after harvest, such as smok-
ing, drying, grinding and freezing,
is considered minimally processed.
Poultry injected with salt, water, and
other ingredients may still be labeled
"natural." An explanation for the use
of the term natural is required on the
label to inform customers what the
claim means.
The natural claim has no relevance
to how the animal was raised or fed.
3. Naturally raised: Since "natural"
claims are limited to post-harvest
processing, some producers use
a "naturally raised" label claim to
inform customers on how animals
were raised. Naturally raised claims
are followed with specific statements,
such as "raised without antibiot-
ics or growth hormones." USDAs
Agriculture Marketing Service ap-
proves post-harvest naturally raised
claims and requires evidence from the
producer prior to approving labels.
4. No antibiotics administered: The
FDA standards state that no meat
sold in the U.S. is allowed to contain
antibiotic residues; however, farmers
and ranchers may use antibiotics to
treat livestock.
Meat producers making claims such
as "no antibiotics added," "no antibi-
otics ever," or "raised without the use
of antibiotics" must seek approval for
the claim from the USDA-FSIS prior
to label placement.
5. Hormone-free: While animals
produce hormones naturally,

Sorting out common food terms to make healthier choices


When you shop for food in a
supermarket, the choices are endless.
Sure, it's a snap to find the ingredients
you want, but sorting out package
claims can be overwhelming. Getting
what you're paying for means learning
some basic terms. Here's a sampling:
What does "organic" mean?
"Certified organic" is one label
that's strictly regulated. To be certified
organic, a farm must be pesticide-
and herbicide-free for at least three
years and meet standards set by
the U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA). Organic meat, poultry, eggs
and dairy products must come from
animals that are given no antibiotics
or growth hormones. Any companies
that handle or process organic food
on its way to the supermarket must
also be certified.
Pros: Organic produce has fewer
trace residues of pesticides. According
to some (but not all) research, some
organic produce may have more
nutrients. It is more environmentally
friendly since fewer pesticides or
herbicides get into the groundwater.
To consider: Organic food can be
more expensive than conventional.
And don't forget that while organic
food may be grown, handled and pro-
cessed differently than conventional
food, it's not necessarily safer or more
nutritious, according to the USDA.
What really matters for your health is
getting more fruits and vegetables in

your diet, whether they're organic or
What does "natural" mean?
Anyone can put the term "nat-
ural" (or "all natural") on most
foods, since the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) has no formal
definition of the term and doesn't
regulate it or police it. So far, accord-
ing to the agency, it has "not objected
to the use of the term if the food does
not contain added color, artificial
flavors or synthetic substances." The
one exception: meats and poultry,
which are regulated by the USDA.
Pros: USDA-regulated meat and
poultry will be free of artificial in-
gredients or added color, and will be
only minimally processed. (The term
"naturally raised" is a voluntary -
read: unregulated label that means
livestock have been raised without
antibiotics and growth hormones and
have not been fed animal by-prod-
ucts.) Food labeled "natural" should
not contain synthetic food dyes, artifi-
cial flavors or synthetic substances.
To consider: Since the FDA doesn't
regulate the term "natural" for any-
thing other than meat and poultry,
it's best to read the label to see what's
really in your food. And keep in mind
that "natural" in no way implies any
product is organic, local, or humanely
What does "local" mean?
Anyone can say their food is "local,"
but local to where? The country? The
state? The town? According to the
2008 Farm Bill, a food should not be

ORGA------------------ '

labeled "local" if it has traveled more
than 400 miles from where it was
grown or produced to the market.
Federal regulations require "coun-
try of origin labeling," or COOL, for
meats fish, fresh and frozen produce,
peanuts, pecans and macadamia nuts
- so for those foods, you can check
to see how "local" that place of origin
actually is to you.
Pros: Buying local supports your
neighbors. It can also be better for

your health, since local fruits and
vegetables are often allowed to ripen
longer and thus often taste better and
carry more nutrients.
To consider: Just because a label
says a food is "local" doesn't guar-
antee that it wasn't produced on a
factory farm, or that it's organic or

Try these 10 secrets to cooking healthy


If your eating habits are anything
like those of most Americans and
you're looking for the simplest ad-
vice, we would tell you to eat more
vegetables, fruits and whole grains
and less of just about everything else.
However, if you're ready for just a bit
more guidance, our 10 principles of
healthy cooking will get you started:
1. Use smart fats. Not all fat is bad.
Opt for unsaturated (e.g., olive oil)
over saturated fats such as butter. But
still use them in moderation because
all fats are loaded with calories.
2. Go unrefined. Pick whole grains
over refined grains. Whole grains like

brown rice and bulgur have their bran
intact and thus have more fiber, B
vitamins, magnesium, zinc and other
3. Eat more fruits and vegetables.
Most people don't get enough! Aim for
5 to 13 servings of fruits and vegeta-
bles a day. Pick produce in a variety of
colors to get a range of antioxidants
and vitamins. A serving size is 1/2
to 1 cup depending on the fruit or
4. It's not all about the meat. Meat
is a great source of protein but it's also
a big source of saturated fat in many
people's diets. So eat small amounts
of lean meat, fish and poultry. Fill up
the rest of your plate with healthy
vegetables and whole grains.

5. Choose low-fat dairy. Dairy
products like milk, sour cream and
yogurt are a good source of calcium.
Replacing whole-milk dairy products
with low-fat or nonfat is an easy way
to cut saturated fat in your diet.
6. Keep portions reasonable. Even
though we would all like a magic
bullet for weight control, it really boils
down to calories. One of the easiest
ways to manage calorie intake is by
eating healthy portions.
7. Use sweeteners judiciously.
Sugars of any kind, whether corn
syrup, white sugar, brown sugar,
honey or maple syrup, add significant
calories without any nutritive value.
8. Keep an eye on sodium. Whether
you have high blood pressure or not,

it's wise to watch your sodium intake.
The USDAs dietary guidelines for
Americans recommend consuming
less than 2,300 mg (about 1 teaspoon
salt) daily.
9. Go for the flavor. Enhance food
with bold flavors from healthy ingre-
dients like fresh herbs, spices and cit-
rus. When your food has great flavor,
there's no reason to feel deprived.
10. Be mindful and enjoy. Make
conscious food decisions rather than
grabbing for what is most convenient.
Make sure it is something delicious
and savor it. When you enjoy what
you eat, you feel satisfied.

Try these 'secret-weapon'foods to boost your chances of losing weight


Want to boost chances of losing
weight? Of course, the foundation for
successful weight loss is eating well
and exercising, but if you want to
power up your efforts, check out this
diet cheat sheet of foods that do a
little of the work for you.
Research shows that these eight
secret-weapon foods can help you
trim down:
1. Apples: For a mere 95 calories,
a medium-sized apple contains 4
grams of fiber. And recent research,
published in the Journal of Nutrition,
suggests that boosting your fiber in-
take may help you to prevent weight
gain or even encourage weight
2. Oatmeal: Eating a breakfast made
with "slow-release" carbohydrates,
such as oatmeal or bran cereal, three
hours before you exercise may help
you burn more fat, suggests a recent
study in the Journal of Nutrition.
Here's why: In the study, eating
"slow-release" carbohydrates didn't
spike blood sugar as high as eating
refined carbohydrates, such as white
toast. In turn, insulin levels didn't
spike as high and because insulin
plays a role in signaling your body to
store fat, having lower levels may help
you burn fat.
3. Soup: Research published in
the journal Appetite has shown that
people who start a meal with vegeta-
ble soup eat 20 percent fewer calories

over the course of their meal.
4. Low-cal desserts: OK, so this isn't
exactly a "health food," but it really is
welcome news that it may be easier
to stick to your diet if it includes a
little sweet treat. According to a new
study in Proceedings of the National
Academy of Sciences, banning sugary
foods could lead to overeating. One
reason may be that removing access
to sweet foods stimulates the release
of a molecule in your brain called
corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF),
produced when you're afraid, anxious
or stressed, said Dr. Pietro Cottone,
lead study author. And increased
stress levels may lower your moti-
vation to eat more nutritious foods,
making it more likely that you'll binge
on junk food.
5. Mushrooms: Research reports
that when people ate mush-
room-based entrees, they felt just
as satisfied as when they'd eaten
those same dishes made with beef-
though they'd taken in a fraction of
the calories and fat.
6. Eggs: In one study, dieters who
ate eggs for breakfast felt full for
longer and lost more than twice as
much weight as those who got the
same amount of calories from a bagel
for breakfast. Think beyond breakfast,
too: eggs boost a salad's staying pow-
er and make for a satisfying snack.
7. Hot chile peppers: In one study,
consuming a little hot pepper (in
tomato juice or in capsules) 30
minutes before a meal helped study
participants feel less hungry and eat


about 10 percent less.
8. Almonds: Chew more to curb
hunger. That's what researchers
concluded in a recent study in
the American Journal of Clinical
Nutrition in which they asked partici-
pants to chew a 2-ounce serving of al-
monds 10, 25 or 40 times. Participants
got maximum satisfaction they felt
fuller longer from the nuts when
they chewed 40 times.

Tennis elbow more common in people who don't play tennis


Q: My doctor says my elbow pain is
due to tennis elbow. But I don't play
tennis. Could you explain how this
has come about and what I can do
about it?
A: "Tennis elbow" is a common
term for a condition doctors call
lateral epicondylitis. It's caused by
inflammation of the tendon that
connects the extensor muscles of the
wrist to the outside of the elbow.
Probably fewer than 10 percent of
people get this by playing tennis. The
usual causes are recreational activ-
ities such as gardening, job-related
lifting, using a screwdriver or wrist

The medial epicondyle can also get
inflamed. In this condition, called
medial epicondylitis, the affected
tendons connect the flexor muscles
of the wrist to the inside of the elbow.
It's commonly called "golfer's elbow"
or "pitcher's elbow." Tightening and
twisting the wrist from activities such
as golfing or throwing a baseball can
cause it.
Most people with medial or lateral
epicondylitis feel pain when their
doctor applies direct pressure to
the inflamed area. He or she might
ask you to push your wrist against
resistance, which could also cause
pain. You might also feel pain with
handshaking, lifting a briefcase or
heavy pot or similar activities.
There is treatment for both

conditions. You could wear a wrist
splint or forearm brace to prevent
overuse of the muscles of the
You can also try a nonsteroidal
anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)
such as ibuprofen or naproxen and
ice packs to help relieve symptoms.
Your doctor may recommend physi-
cal therapy, especially if you need to
return to a job or activity that caused
the problem.
Sometimes doctors recommend
one or two steroid shots over the
affected epicondyle. But there is
some risk of tissue loss around the
elbow with repeated shots. The symp-
toms of "tennis" or "golfer's" elbow
normally get better within a few
months with conservative therapy.

Contestants make steady progress in weight loss challenge


Congratulations to the post-holiday
weight loss challenge competitors.
We have three weeks to go in the
competition, and collectively you
have lost 600 pounds. A smart diet is
extremely important for weight loss;
however, exercise and healthy eating
is a much better way to achieve weight
loss. Aerobic exercise combined with
weight-resistance training is the most
effective when trying to lose weight.
The emphasis should lean more
towards aerobic exercising.
Aerobic exercise may include the use
of treadmills, stationary bikes, ellipti-
cals, rowing machines, stair steppers,
bicycling and walking. Studies have
shown that aerobic training is most
effective at burning visceral and liver
fat, commonly referred to as belly fat.
Try to keep things interesting and
more effective by varying routines; a
personal trainer can help you tailor
routines to your needs. Cut down on
the rest periods between routines.
Keep up the intensity and don't let
those muscles rest as much. You will
likely see good results.
Weight-resistance training is also
important when trying to lose and
maintain weight loss, because it
improves strength and develops lean
body mass. Thus the person becomes
more fit.
And, being more fit enables your
body to better adapt to more strenu-
ous aerobic activity.

Studies have shown that the com-
bination of resistance training and
aerobics accomplish weight loss while
maintaining muscle mass. ." .
These same studies have further "
demonstrated that high intensity .
resistance training prevents weight
regain, while it also creates the toned
and tight bodies that most of us hold
as ideal.
Keep pushing yourself and reach
your goal. Good luck to one and all.

Animals whose meat is labeled
"grass-fed," including all organic-la-
beled meats, cannot have been fed
grain and grain by-products, and are
required to have continuous access to
pasture for the duration of their life
after weaning. Roughage, including
hay, silage, and crop residue without

grain stage, are acceptable feed for
grassfed livestock.

organic label, meat simply labeled
"grass-fed" may be raised on pasture
that may or may not have been
exposed or treated with synthetic
pesticides or fertilizers.

Shingles remain lifelong threat


If you had chickenpox (varicella
zoster) as a youngster, you probably
remember it well.
The itching.
The scratching.
The perpetual discomfort bordering
on pain.
What you probably don't remember,
however, is being told by your parents
and/or doctor that five, six or seven
decades later the virus may just revisit
you in the form of shingles (herpes
Former MSNBC and current ESPN
broadcaster Keith Olbermann is the
latest baby boomer to be reminded -
the hard way that once the dreaded
"zoster" comes to visit, it never leaves.
Late last month, the 55-year-old
Olbermann missed a week of broad-
casting of his eponymous nightly
one-hour show after being felled by
the burning, painful disorder.
His tweets self-admitted "kvetch-
es" about the condition, though,
were quite entertaining. Among them:
"It is mind-boggling to realize that
I am dealing with a virus I contracted

while JFK was still president"
"To those asking, Shingles (sic)
feels like you fell 3 flights. On to sharp
poison ivy. Which then spontaneously
combusts. Emitting toxic fumes."
"...Get the vaccine!"
Of course, for anyone who's suffered
through a bout with shingles, they're
no laughing matter.
What's more, a study of Medicare
data published in December showed
that, between 1992 and 2010, the
annual rates of shingles cases in those
older than 65 increased nearly 40
That same study concluded that,
for those who had chickenpox in their
youth, between a quarter and a third
eventually experience at least one
episode with shingles.
The reason why? Well, the medical
community's guess is as good as yours
or mine.
'Anything that is a 'stress' on the
body could be a factor that contributes
to a shingles outbreak," explained Dr.
Thomas Balshi, owner and medical
director of Balshi Dermatology and
Cosmetic Surgery in Delray Beach,
Fla. "Everything from the flu, arthritic
injury and mental stress to too much

sunlight or a sudden change in climate
can do it. The list is endless. And,
sometimes shingles erupts without
any definable reason behind it."
The vaccine Olbermann referenced
in his tweet it's called "Zostavax"
- is available to those 60 and older
who've had chickenpox. The injection
helps mitigate some of the risk for
seniors but, said Balshi, it "doesn't
provide 100 percent protection from
getting shingles."
Nonetheless, added Balshi: "Experts
recommend that people older than
60 get this vaccine whether or not
they've had shingles before because
it considerably reduces the severity
and risk of further complications of a
shingles outbreak."
At the first sign of shingles that is,
when you begin experiencing nerve
pain, burning or topical blistering -
get to your doctor immediately.
"By taking antiviral prescription

medication within 72 hours of a i
outbreak, you can help reduce tlie paiin
and duration of the disease," said Bocai

In severe cases, notes Ballesta-.,
patients may need to supplement thIe
antiviral meds with corticosteroid-. i t,
reduce swelling), antihistamines i t,
decrease itching) and Zostrix, a cieaiim
containing capsacian, which help-.
control pain.
In addition, Ballestas warns thiI- Ui-,t
because you've never had chicken pox
does not mean shingles pose you no

K "I work and I run. That is all that I
Sdo," Knudsen said.
Obsession and running often
go hand in hand. Marathon run-
ners are rarely athletic dilettantes.
Conditioning the body to withstand
the rigors of a run that lasts hours
demands an extreme time commit-
ment and powerful self-discipline.
"Personal best" is a constantly moving
Knudsen, it seems, is in it more
for the mileage. If there were a fre-
quent-flyer club for runners, she'd
have earned her wings.
"Gasoline is expensive, and I would
not use a car unless I had to. I'd use it
once a month, maybe. I'd rather run,"
the 52-year-old said.
Knudsen grew up overseas, the
S PHTOdaughter of a half-German, half-
MOT PHOTO French mother and a stepfather who
013. Knudsen worked for the Danish Embassy. The
family moved frequently and Knudsen
attended schools in Denmark, Poland
and Japan, among other nations. She
credits those early years for instilling
what became a lifelong peripatetic
"My mom didn't like it. Apparently,
I did because I'm still on the go," said
* Knudsen, who blames all those moves
for her accent, "which no one can
ever guess."
y 1When she relocated to Colorado
Springs in 2001, her passion wasn't
running but taekwondo, a sport she
9 began as a "fun way to stay fit" after a
studio opened near her Bristol, Conn.,
home. She'd always run, and had once
even set her sights on running the
Hartford Marathon, but she didn't
consider it her thing. In Colorado
0i00**. Springs, that once supplemental
activity quickly became her focus. The
Scenery and climate were too perfect;
to not run would have been a crime.
Plus, she liked the effect it had
on her brain. "Eventually, you stop

thinking. Nothing else exists. It's kind
of neat," she said.
On the days she would bike to
her job as a cardiology technician
at University of Colorado Health at
Memorial Hospital, she would run
home. The next day, she'd swap. By
the time a co-worker suggested the
two train together for the New Denver
Half Marathon, Knudsen was running
10 miles a day.
"A half marathon wasn't really a
challenge," she said, and told her
friend: "You do the half. I'll go for the
full thing."
She figured she knew what she was
in for even though she'd never run
close to 26.2 miles.
"I was still very innocent at that
point," she said.
To get the lay of the land, Knudsen
signed up for the 2008 American
Discovery Trail Marathon in Colorado
Springs. It was the first time she ever
had run more than 13 miles.
"It was hard," she said. "I ran the
first 20 and had to walk the last
6 miles. I always laugh because I
thought then, 'If I die now at least I
don't have to finish the race.'"
The next day, her attitude was
different. She actually was looking
forward to the upcoming Boulder
"I knew I needed to run Denver and
I needed another long training run,"
she said. "I used marathons as my
training at that time."
By the time she crossed the finish
line in Denver, with a time of 5 hours,
2 minutes, she had set a goal to run a
marathon a month.
"Everybody said I wouldn't sustain
such heavy training," she said. They
were wrong. Through the summer of
the following year, she did just that.
Then came a half-marathon, which
broke the streak.
"That's why now, I don't run any-
thing less than 26.2 miles," she said.
She then stepped it up to two
marathons a month a pattern that
went uninterrupted up until 2012 and
emergency gallbladder surgery.
"If they'd let me out of the hospital,
I would have run," she said, and
laughed. "It messed up my plans."
Running two marathons a month
means traveling to where the mara-
thons happen, chasing the weather
around the continent. She ran the
Mayor's Marathon in Anchorage in
June. She ran five marathons in three
days in San Antonio. In December,
she ran barefoot on the beach while
in Hawaii for the Honolulu Marathon,
and then she called it mission
"Here ends my quest for 50 states
plus D.C. That was fun. Let's do it
again," she said.

Charlotte medical team heads to Philippines

With the help of several organiza-
tions, a group of Charlotte County
physicians has raised a medical
response team to bring aid to a
devastated area of the Philippines this
Bantayan Island was one of the
areas struck by November's Super
Typhoon Haiyan (called Yolanda in the
Philippines), but was slow to receive
aid because most of the attention was
focused on the more highly populated
city of Tacloban on the island of Leyte.
As a result, it was reported that it
took weeks before significant aid of
any kind was delivered to Bantayan
and its outlying islets some of
which are accessible only by boat in
spite of having 95 percent of struc-
tures completely destroyed in certain
places. Although relief eventually

arrived, there is still much devastation
and a dire need for medical care,
medications and supplies.
In response to the situation, local
physicians Drs. Mark Asperilla and
Rhona Holganza began organizing a
medical mission to offer aid.
The Charlotte County Philippines
Medical Mission which will make
its way to the island nation March
20-30 is being sponsored by the
Charlotte County Medical Society
Foundation; Filipino American Society
of Charlotte County; Indian Society
of Charlotte County; Gawad Kalinga
USA, an international organization
that works to end poverty by build-
ing communities, and frequently
constructs homes in areas that have
suffered disasters; and Americares,
a nonprofit agency that solicits

donations of free medications from
pharmaceutical companies for charity
causes. Co-sponsors include the Peace
River Rotary Club and the Rotary Club
Cebu Fuente. In addition, the students
of St. Charles Borromeo Catholic
School organized a drive that resulted
in the donation of several large boxes
of various supplies for needy Filipino
The nine-member team consists of
Asperilla and Holganza, as well as Drs.
Samuel Estepa and Antonio Gabarda,
nurses Aida Gabarda, Luda Melnik
and Carrie Shadduck, and additional
workers Leroy Jackson, president of
the Peace River Rotary Club, and Bob
Massey, a local freelance writer who
will chronicle the event as well as
assist with the medical operations.
"Those of us who remember when

Hurricane Charley hit in 2004, imag-
ine if 90 percent of all the homes and
buildings in Charlotte County had
been destroyed," Asperilla said. "That's
what we're dealing with here. To make
matters worse, they don't have the
resources to help all the victims or
rebuild the infrastructure like we do
in the United States. These people
desperately need our help."
Asperilla added that, courtesy of a
grant through Gawad Kalinga and the
University of Santo Tomas Class of
1979 Faculty of Medicine and Surgery,
120 homes are slated to be built for
the homeless victims of the super
typhoon on Bantayan.
For more information about the
mission, or to make a donation to this
or future aid trips, call Holganza's
office at 941-629-2922.

Getting that perfect emerald
shade of frosting for the annual St.

McCormick's "Shamrockin'Treats"

how much of their colors to mix
together for the ideal shade of
green, whether it's for frosting or
tinted cake mix.
The company's website also
has 17 recipes (naturally) for
festive green treats, like Mint Iced

to make festive foods, just in time
for the holiday:
When making rice cereal treats,
stir 2 teaspoon green food coloring
into the marshmallow mix before
adding the cereal for a festive treat
that kids will love.

We might wear it on St. Patrick's Day to avoid
a pinch, but to quickly toss on a wardrobe item

4 ways to shop smarter

4 ways to shop smarter

S hopSmart, the shopping maga-
zine from the publisher of Con-
sumer Reports, recommends
these ways to get inspired to shape
up, save online and more:
Get fit and save. Here's a smart
way to save when you shop for fitness
gear: Become a member of sports
retailers'"clubs."Join REI's club by
paying a $20 one-time fee, and you get
cash back annually on your purchase
- usually 10 percent, according to the
website. For Nike, membership is free
and gets you free shipping, plus free
returns on purchases of $75 or more.
For Dick's Sporting Goods, membership
is free and nets you one point for every
dollar spent; 300 points gets you a $10
credit. Clubs offer other perks, too. Get
details on retailers'websites.
Save on sports bras. These exercise
essentials can be pricey, so consider
shopping at an outlet, where you'll find
prices discounted up to 60 percent. You
don't have to go to an outlet mall, though;
big brands have online outlets, too. Try
Champion (
out-clothes/outlet), Hanes (onehanesplace.
com) and REI sites ( When
ShopSmart checked, it found sports bras
starting at just $13.
Score free shipping. New programs
make it easier than ever to get stuff


sent to your house at no charge.
American Express cardholders can get
free two-day shipping from more than
80 participating retailers by signing up
for a ShopRunner membership (usu-
ally $79 per year) at
americanexpress. Cardholders who
enroll in MasterCard's new program can
get reimbursed for express shipping
charges up to $20; sign up at
Haggle online. Better yet, get
someone else to do it for you. A new
website, Greentoe, negotiates discount
prices for you. It works like the old
Priceline model you name your
price, and Greentoe submits your offer
to its retail partners. You can bid for
appliances, baby items, home theater
products, music gear and photo
equipment. You buy directly from the
retailers, saving 18 to 20 percent on
average, says CEO and co-founder
Joe Marrapodi. And your offer already
includes sales tax and shipping, so the
amount you bid is the amount you
actually pay.

According to ShopSmart, this
season's new workout wear styles
are pretty enough to go from the
gym to the grocery store, or even a
casual dinner. In addition to trendy
colors and cute styles, you'll find
figure-flattering details in pants,
T-shirts and sports bras that can make
you look great while you're getting
in shape, says consulting stylist Zoey
A new pair of workout pants can
lengthen and lift better than any pair
of skinny jeans. And tops made of
moisture-wicking, breathable fabrics
are as figure-flattering as they are
comfortable. The secret? Beyond
polyester and nylon, which allow for
a lightweight, flattering fit, you'll also
find tops, pants and socks made of
compression fabric that holds you in
like a body shaper, thanks in part to
new lines from Spanx and Miraclesuit.
Plus workout wear makers say
that the compression-wear increases
blood flow and supports muscles in a
way that lets you have a longer sweat
session and faster recovery, though
the jury is still out on those claims
and ShopSmart hasn't tested them.
What matters most for fitness buffs
is how the clothes make you feel. "If

ShopSmart, the shopping magazine from
the publisher of Consumer Reports, suggests
pulling together a look that can work beyond
the gym with a pretty matching jacket.
the clothes fit well and look good,
you will want to work out," says exer-
cise physiologist Mike Bracko, fellow
of the American College of Sports

Scholarship search: How to find the hidden money

The more you focus
on local opportunities,
the better chances
you have to score
scholarship money,
says Jacqueline Hertz,
college and career
specialist for Woodside
High School in Newport
News, Va.
College graduates owe

more than $956 billion
in student loan debt,
according to the latest
report by the National
Center for Education
Statistics. Any scholar-
ship money can help
offset that burden.
Although it is
important to apply to
the national or state-
wide scholarships that
offer large amounts of
money, students should
not forget about their


local networks.
"It's not that you
shouldn't shoot for
the stars, but you're
competing against a
lot of other students
with those big-name
scholarships," Hertz said.
"It's a myth that there
are millions of dollars
of unclaimed scholar-
ship money each year,
but there are a lot of
opportunities available.
If you look at the local

scholarships, you'll have
a better chance."
Start with your local
volunteer organizations.
Many of them want
to help young people
succeed. Talk to neigh-
bors, friends and family
members to get con-
nected to the volunteer
organizations in your
neighborhood. There
is likely a scholarship
opportunity waiting for
your application.

Shopping Charlotte and Lee counties

o start with I'd like to tell you about
a reader who took one of my hints
regarding buying on eBay. He
wanted to buy a rare and expensive
CD. Following my suggestion he tried
entering misspellings of the item in his
search. He came upon a hit and since no
one else had found it he was able to buy
a $65 CD for $5.
I started out this week on the 12000
block of McGregor in Fort Myers. There
are several shops on the right as you go
west. Beyond that, on Pine Ridge, don't
skip the Swap Shop and an adjacent
shop that has furniture and home decor
From there I went south on U.S. 41 to
Gannon's Art and Antiques. Here you'll
find wonderful treasures from smalls to
high-end antiques. On the first Saturday
of each month, in the winter season,
they have an outdoor market that has
netted me some great buys.
I did the Tuesday market at the Shell

Factory and bought some smalls at
ridiculously low prices. This market also
runs on Thursdays and Saturdays. The
next day I went to the Drive-In Flea on
old U.S. 41 which is open year round on
Wednesday. Hundreds of tables and lots
of good inexpensive produce.
At the drive-in I found a set of six
old gas station oil bottles with colored
logos. These can run $300 to over $1,200
a set. I managed to get these for $150.
However, in my excitement, I never
really looked at them, and when I got
them home I quickly realized they were
reproductions. After doing a comparison
on eBay I found that they were selling
for about $40 each. I quickly listed them
for"Best Offer"and in a few hours I sold
them for $216. I always warn buyers
to be careful, but I let my guard down
thinking I had found that once-in-a-
month bargain.
During the week I spent a day in Punta
Gorda at Valentina's and Copperfish

Books. Maria at Valentina's always has
a wonderful selection and the book
store is loaded with good stuff, both
new, old and very old. In the same
shopping center on Taylor you'll also find
Reflections of the Past and at the very
end is a storefront for a weekly auction
of anything and everything. From there
to the Antique Depot in the old train
station on Taylor. Here, as usual, I was
able to find a few bargains.
The Historic Park in Punta Gorda has
an outdoor antique market year round
on the second Sunday of each month.
I almost always leave with a few items.
In the rear of the market you'll find Earl
Baker selling furniture and offering his
services as an expert chair caner. He did
a fabulous job for me on an old chair.
There are also lots of consignment
shops and thrift stores in both Punta
Gorda and Port Charlotte and I'd advise
you to get a list on the Internet and hit
them all.

Leno, Murdoch among TV Hall of Fame inductees

Bill Maher took advantage
of pal Jay Leno's Television
Academy Hall of Fame
induction to offer a spirited
attack on what Maher called
undeserved "bad publicity"
for the former'Tonight
Show" host.
Introducing Leno at
Tuesday night's ceremony,
Maher said his behavior nev-
er warranted the brickbats
tossed at him over Conan
O'Brien's short-lived tenure
as 'Tonight Show" host.
"Jay Leno reminds me a
little bit of Israel," Maher said.
"He's not perfect but he's

"From pillows to chairs
- you can give the room

held to a standard nobody
is expected to live up to but
The media helped fan
the myth that Leno "stole
Conan's dream"when NBC
brought Leno back to host
"Tonight" after the show's
ratings dropped in 2009
with O'Brien at the helm.
Maher, host of HBO's"Real
Time;"used an expletive to
dismiss the idea that such a
theft is possible, then offered
himself as a tongue-in-cheek
example: He claimed that
Tom Cruise robbed him of
the starring role in "Top Gun."
Leno's reputation among
critics as a bland host
compared with supposedly

space into something you
never imagined.'
If you can't afford to
reupholster furniture, or
have it custom-made,
look through antique
stores or stores like Target
and Kohl's, which are also
filled with great choices.
Nichol Cramer-Boeger,
with One Stop Decorating
Centers in the Kansas
City, Mo., area, says a hint
of green in our homes has
the power to soothe.

"edgy" predecessor Johnny
Carson also is a falsehood,
Maher said, and called
Leno suited to his time just
as Carson was when he
hosted "Tonight'."
After Maher's intro-
duction, Leno's remarks
proved mild. Repeating as-
sertions he made when he
ended his 22-year tenure
as host in February, Leno,
63, said it was the right
time to turn "Tonight"over
to the younger Jimmy
Fallon, who is 39.
Leno said he watches
Fallon's show, and the two
talk a couple of times a
"He's terrific. He brings a

"It's a very calming
color,";' she says. "It's restful
in bedrooms when used
in the gray-green or blue-
green palettes."
Consider it in rooms
that feature tan, choco-
late, black, gray or even
orange hues, she says.
Of course, those with a
green thumb realize the
ultimate "green" state-
ment is a plant. Add a few
to bookshelves and man-
tels to contrast with the
sharp lines of architecture,
Cramer-Boeger says.
As in nature, Anderson
adds, a touch a green also
adds majesty to a home,
just as a mighty oak does
to a yard.
"I like colors like Willow
Springs by Benjamin
Moore because it makes
a statement of elegance,"
Anderson says. "It's almost
like the perfect flower."
So, for sure, toss on that
kelly green T-shirt before
heading out to sip your
Guinness on St. Patrick's
Day, but when you return
home, think of adding a

new energy,";' Leno said be-
fore the ceremony."I think
he was smart to take it to
New York, get a different
vibe or different feel"
The other inductees
included media baron
Rupert Murdoch; Julia
Louis-Dreyfus; prolific

Corned beef, green rice and easy desserts

on't we all have a wee
bit of Irish, or blarney, in
us somewhere? So why
doesn't our community have a
Saint Patrick's Day parade? We
have parades for so many other
events, why not March 17?
I mentioned this in a column
several years ago, but unfortu-
nately nothing came of it. Irish
or not, I believe it would give
the community, especially the
kids, a fabulous day along with a
little bit of Irish history. Parkside
behind the Promenades Mall
would be the perfect place to
start the parade!
The only parades I've been
fortunate enough to personally
attend were the Rose Bowl
Parade in Pasadena, Calif., and
several Orange Bowl parades
in Miami. Macy's Thanksgiving
Day Parade was always a yearly
event for the family, but via TV.
Happy birthday to my daugh-
ter Maurya Kathleen Morgan
Hellane, my Wild Irish Rose, born
on Saint Patrick's Day.
Have a great day tomorrow
and thanks for reading!

Hunting for low prices is about more than the sale


MeetTodd Stuart dedicat-
ed shopper.
Stuart, 52, and lives in
Northville, Mich., hunts
for deals in the clearance
aisles of metro Detroit's J.C.
Penney stores.
"The only way to get deals
is to go back to the store
again and again to check
and see what's been marked
down,;' says Stuart who is
benefiting from J.C. Penney's
most recent decision to
switch up its merchandise
mix. In many cases, the store
has discounted high-end
housewares lines by more
than 90 percent off original
His haul so far: bone china
dinner plates for $1.58 each,
regularly $28; a wooden
Design by Conran storage
cabinet for $350-ish, down
from $2,165; and picture
frames, notebooks, desk
accessories and more.
Add to that something

that can't be put in a shop-
ping bag: excitement.
'There is a real rush with
going out and hunting for
these things and finding
these great deals," says
Stuart, who is thrifty and se-
lective about what he buys.
"When you get things like
that it's'Wow!'It's a game"
More than wants or
needs or convenience, it's
the thrill of the hunt that
lures many shoppers into
the stores whether it's
atJ.C. Penney orTarget or
Macy's or stores such asTJ.
Maxx and Marshalls that
bill themselves as treasure
hunts or, well, even the
neighborhood garage sale.
And in the post-reces-
sion era where shoppers
have become increasingly
savvy and more con-
scious of how much they
spend it's what keeps
them coming back, not
necessarily for stuff they
actually need, but for what
might best be described
as shopping trophies.

"I call it competitive sport
shopping,;' says Kit Yarrow, a
California-based consumer
psychologist whose latest
book, "Decoding the New
Consumer Mind: How and
Why We Shop and Buy"
(Wiley, $27) is due out
March 31.
"It really is like playing the
sport where you're compet-
ing against someone and
you want to win;' she says."lf
you beat them, then you're
better than them. In a lot of
ways, that's what shopping
is all about. The badge of
honor today isn't look how
rare and expensive this
thing is that I bought.... It's
really winning the price war
against the competition"
Winning changes our
body chemistry.
"The same neurotrans-
mitters that are involved
in drug addiction of any
sort are also involved when
we're shopping,"Yarrow
says. "We get a little squirt
of dopamine when we
have a positive shopping

experience and that makes
us feel really good.
"When we stop experi-
encing it we go through
a little bit of withdrawal,
which leads us back out
looking for our next hit'"
Which means back to the
mall, where we try to repli-
cate our past experience.
To heighten her thrill,
Deidra Hogue, a bargain
shopper who is 40 and
works as a financial
analyst for an automotive
supplier, ups the shopping

degree of difficulty.
She goes into stores -
her favorites include TJ.
Maxx, Nordstrom Rack
and Marshalls with low
expectations and a resolve
to buy something only if it's
a good fit for what's already
in her closet.
That way if she finds
something, she gets a
charge out of being pleas-
antly surprised.
Discount stores aren't
neatly packaged "like one of
the high-end department


Port Charlotte Town Center

stores. You can go into Saks
and Neiman's and find
exactly what you're looking
for, but you're going to pay
for it," Hogue says.
But the biggest reason we
shoppers pursue the hunt
and revel in its thrill is be-
cause the end result makes
us feel smart and special. We
beat the system by saving a
ton of money or by having
the power to say no thanks
to what is advertised as a
good deal, but probably
isn't. At least not for us.

Fire is the enemy, but it is als our friend

Fire is the enemy, but it is also our friend

Winston Churchill once
said "History is writ-
ten by the victors."
Now I know that Mr. Churchill
was not speaking of firefight-
ers when he said this, but of
war. Fire is the enemy, but it
is also our friend. We cook,
stay warm, and gather around
the "dragon." But, when un-
leashed the "dragon" takes
unmercifully and is relentless
in its destruction.
With history being what it
is, who were the first firefight-
ers and how were they rec-
ognized? Well history tells us
that when a courageous band
of crusaders known as the
Knights of St. John fought the
Saracens for possession of the
Holy Land, they encountered
a new weapon unknown to
European warriors.
It was a simple but horrible
device of war. It wrought
excruciating pain and ago-
nizing death upon the brave

they became saturated with
the highly flammable liquid,
the Saracens hurled a flam-
ing torch into their midst.
Hundreds of the knights
were burned alive; others

risked their lives to save their
brothers-in-arms from dying
painful, fiery deaths. Thus,
these men became our first
firemen and the first of a long
list of courageous firefighters.
Their heroic efforts were
recognized by fellow cru-
saders who awarded each a
badge of honor a cross
similar to the one firemen
wear today. Since the Knights
of St. John lived for close to
four centuries on a little is-
land in the Mediterranean Sea
named Malta, the cross came
to be known as the Maltese
Cross. The Maltese Cross is
our symbol of protection. It
means that the fireman who
wears this cross is willing to
lay down his life for you just
as the crusaders sacrificed
their lives for their fellow
man so many years ago. The
Maltese Cross is a fireman's


badge of honor, signifying
that he works in courage

Pairing Girl Scout cookies with adult beverages


If there ever were a food
marriage made in heaven, it'd
have to be milk and cookies.
Now that you're a grown-up,
though, you may no longer
drink milk unless it's lightening
your coffee or moistening a
bowl of cereal. That can make
for a long, dry Girl Scout-cookie
There's a solution for non-milk
drinkers, and it's called beer or
We asked a few experts which
brews and spirits go best with
a variety of Girl Scout cookies.
And after a few initial laughs
- "Is this for April Fool's Day?"
wine writer Elizabeth Downer
asked they came up with a
definitive list, along with some
general observations about
pairing God's gift to cookie
eaters with adult beverages.
When it comes to serving
wine with the fundraising
cookies, says Downer, the rule is
to go sweet instead of dry.
If you pair a sweet food with a
non-sweet white wine, such as a
dry chardonnay, she explains, it
can make the wine taste sour. In
the case of dry red wine, it can
accentuate those bitter, dry-
mouth tannins.
"Something sweet with an-
other kind of wine totally kicks
it," she says. "It has to be sweet."
Regarding beer, it's best to
pair chocolate, vanilla and
fruity desserts with roasty
(coffee notes) and chocolate
(rich, dark beers) brews, says
beer consultant Matt Simpson,
owner of the Beer Sommelier

Vanilla-based desserts also go
well with sweet, malty beers,
which have low hops and lots of
caramel and toffee notes.
Here are the Simpsons'sug-
gestions, along with those of
wine enthusiast Jack Brice, who
runs Pittsburgh's Grapenuts
wine tasting group. To find Girl
Scout cookies in your area, go
to or download
the free Girl Scout Cookie
Finder app on iTunes.

Thin mints
These all-time faves are
among the strongest tasting
Girl Scout cookies, so you need
a beverage that can stand
up to the mint. Wine: Brice
recommends a sparkling Shiraz,
such as Bleasdale Red Brute
Sparkling Shiraz Langhorne
Creek (PLCB No. 22835, $15.99).
Spicy but not overly sweet, it
has "rich flavors and full enough
body to compliment the
chocolate and stand up to the
mint'" Beer: Simpson suggests
a hoppy, chocolate American
porter such as Edmund
Fitzgerald Porter from Great
Lakes Brewing Co.

It can be difficult to balance
beer with a heavier peanut-but-
ter cookie, but a raspberry
Iambic does just that, says
Simpson, because it is a light,
sweet ale with a tart finish. Try
Lindemans Framboise. With
regards to wine, Brice thinks a
nutty port would complement
the smoothness of the peanut
butter and chocolate flavors.
He recommends Cockburn
Porto 10 Year Old Tawny Port
(PLCB No. 14609, $24.99). Ms.
Simpson, on the other hand,

likes the idea of a PB&J combo.
She suggests Casa Narcisi's
Concord 2012 (narcisiwinery.
com, $12), a sweet, fruity
wine made from Pennsylvania
Concord grapes. It is "superbly
rich with a distinct and luscious
'grape jelly'aroma."

A cookie with three
predominant tastes caramel,
chocolate and coconut -
requires an equally complex
wine. On the top of Brice's list is
R. L. Buller Victoria Tokay (PLCB
No. 11403, $14.99), a fortified
wine with notes of orange and
"spice on the nose,"followed
by the rich flavors of toffee,
caramel and spiced fruitcake.
For beer, Simpson suggests a
dry, Irish stout that's been aged
in bourbon barrels to round out
the rough edges and bring out
a vanilla and coconut flavor. He
suggests Hunahpu's Imperial
Stout from Tampa's Cigar City
Brewing, a big, dark beer that
incorporates cacao nibs, chiles,
vanilla beans and cinnamon.

Savannah Smiles
These lemony, sugary
treats pair wonderfully with
a Belgium-style saison,
which tastes bready with a
champagne-citrus note, says
Simpson. If you can find it, con-
sider pairing the cookies with
Jack D'or, a saison Americain
from the Pretty Things Beer and
Ale Project in Somerville, Mass.
For spirit lovers, Brice suggests
Pallini Limoncello (PLCB No.
7537), a bright-yellow Italian
liqueur made with lemon zest,
sugar and alcohol. One sip/bite
and you'll swear you've died
and gone to the Amalfi Coast.


Girl Scout cookies with Irish Stout beer.

Sherry is known for nut
flavors, so choosing a medi-
um-dry variety (which actually
is somewhat sweet) is a natural
for this crunchy peanut but-
ter-filled oatmeal cookie. "It
stands up to the sweetness
while complementing the
peanut flavors," says Brice, who
recommends Pedro Romero
Medium Dry Amontillado
Sherry (PLCB No. 10296, $10.99).
On the beer front, Simpson
thinks a perfect pairing is a
medium- to full-bodied foreign
stout with notes of chocolate
and coffee, such as Guinness
Foreign Extra Stout, which is
brewed with "generous hops"
and roasted barley.

Shortbread cookies, says
Simpson, go a long way when
you taste them with a dop-
pelbock, a creamy, full-bodied
caramel lager with a relatively
sweet but dry finish. Try some-
thing like the limited-release
Platinum Blonde Doppelbock
from Wisconsin's Capital

Brewery. Le Mesnil Blanc De
Blancs Grand Cru Champagne
(PLCB No. 39622, $32.99) is a
good bet for wine lovers, says
Brice, because it provides "finesse
and nuance to complement the
buttery notes of the shortbread"

Dulce de Leche
The milk caramel chips in
these bite-sized cookies pair
perfectly with Belgian blonde
ales, says Simpson, because
the hint of fruitiness in Belgian
yeast won't overpower the
caramel but instead make it
"just right."The perfect pour
includes beers such as Leffe

Ex-film, TV actre

fronts rock band
ere is the new re-
leases for the week
of March 18.
First we have a new
release by a band called
The Pretty Reckless and
their CD is called Going
to He** (double hockey
The Pretty Reckless is
a hard rock band started
back in 2007 by front-
woman Taylor Momsen.
Many of you will be
surprised to know that
she is the actress who
played Cindy Lou Who
in Jim Carrey's version of
"How the Grinch Stole
Christmas"and now she
is all grown up, well, all
the way to the age of 20.
She later she rose
to fame playing Jenny
Humphrey on the CW's
"Gossip Girl." During her
time acting she contin-
ued to focus on a career
in music. After the show
ended she tried to find
a producer who did not
want to turn her and her
music into a pop star.
She is a rock'n' roller
and if you get to see her
videos from this new
album you will see what
I mean.
I have watched a few
of them on YouTube and
if you area fan of'80s
rock bands, this is for
you. A little on the dark
side with the content
but such catchy rhythms.
Once she found the right
producer, they set out to
find some band mates.
The studio hired three
members and started
touring, after just seven
shows the band was let
Next, three new mem-
bers were hired and they
recorded their debut
album called Light Me Up
in 2010. Once again band
members were changed
and with this new band
they have found their
sound. I very seldom go
out on a limb to praise

ss By Ti

a band, but folks you
heard it here first, this
band is set to be big....
I mean big. Many folks
who grew up in the '80s,
who purchased CDs not
downloaded them are
hungry for something
new and here it is.
While researching
the band I see it has
two upcoming shows
in our area. April 25 in
Tampa and April 26 in
Fort Myers as part of the
Fort Rock show at the
JetBlue Park. This release
is the band's second CD
and consists of 12 songs.
Don't be a Grinch, check
out their new sound.
Next we have a new
release by Kylie Minogue
called Kiss Me Once.
Kylie Ann Minogue
was born in Melbourne,
Australia, on May 28,
1968. She began her
career as a public figure
at a very young age. By
age 11, she was star-
ring on soap operas in
Australia. Her role on the
series "Neighbours" was
so popular in Britain that
more than 20 million
people tuned in each
week. During that time
she performed a few
songs, which included
her very first hit single.
Other major releases
this week are from Foster
the People, Taking Back
Sunday, YG (rap), Ronnie
Milsap, George Michael
and Lang Lang (classical).
Independent releases
this week are from Black
Lips, Gus G, Lou Ann
Barton (blues), Slim Thug
(rap), Citrus Sun and Jo
Dee Messina.
Keep rockin'folks.

5 shoe trends to put some spring in your step


While the idea of
snapping up new swim-
suits, shorts and tank
tops certainly doesn't
escape us, we're choos-
ing to start the season
off with some serious
shoe shopping. After
all, sandals, wedges
and sneakers are totally
forgiving of that holiday
weight we haven't quite
yet managed to shed
yet, right?
Here are five spring
shoe styles perfect for
2014. Just add sun-
screen, a fresh pedi and
let those toes wiggle.
Flower power is a
perennial spring staple,
and, this season, the
pretty print is making its
way to footwear. Brands
including J.Crew, Guess,
Florsheim, Ivanka Trump,
Ted Baker London and
more offer floral sandals,
sneakers, pumps, ankle
boots, oxfords you
name it. Freshen up
your favorite LBD, girly
up jeans and a T-shirt or
just add a little pep to
your usual office attire.

oxford or brogue
menswear-style shoe
was popular for fall and
winter, but it's sticking
around for spring, too.
Linen, perforated leather
or cut-out details make
the shoe warm weath-
er-friendly, and shiny
metallics, animal prints,
polka dots, stripes and
other prints add whimsy.
We like styles from Gap,
Dolce Vita and Cole
If you kept your Jeff
Spicoli checkerboard
Vans around, just hoping
they'd make a fashion
come-back one day, now
is the time to pull them
out of storage. Slip-on
sneakers are all the rage,
with high-end designers
like Givenchy, Jimmy
Choo, Lanvin, Marc
Jacobs, Prada and Saint
Laurent putting their
spin on the skater classic.
The latest versions come
in all kinds of fabrics -
denim, canvas, leather
and burlap, and in a
huge variety of colors,
prints we are especial-
ly digging camo, stripes,
lace and florals and with
chic embellishments -
crystals, leather piping


These men's Florsheim floral
oxfords combine two spring
shoe trends in one. They're
$395 at
and studs among them.
Not ready to spend a
week's pay on a pair of
sneaks? You'll find plenty
of slip-ons from brands
such as Lauren Ralph
Lauren, Topshop and,
of course, Vans, for less
than $50 a pop. Gnarly!
The mule, a backless san-
dal, made a serious come-
back during the spring
2014 fashion collections,
spotted on runways
including Celine, Chloe
and Victoria Beckham.
The modern version
features a shy-high
platform wedge (see Aldo,
3.1 Phillip Limr, Jeffrey
Campbell) or a tall chunky
heel (Victoria's Secret,
French Connection, Rag
& Bone). Also look for fun
details like fringe, cut-
outs, see-through heels,
grommets and other

Papillo, an independent
brand from Birkenstock,
features modern shoes like
this women's Papillio Gizeh
Leather Flat in metallic gold
They may have a rep as
being an anti-fashion
statement, but that's
probably why style
insiders seem bent
on making them cool
again. Isabel Marant,
Trina Turk, Edun and
others paired ready-
to-wear runway looks
with the hippie sandals
during the spring 2014
fashion collections.
And whether you opt
for the original, or a
pair from labels like Sam
Edelman, Steve Madden
or Zara (or, if you have
money to burn, sandals
from Givenchy, Marni
or Lanvin), at least you
can be sure your feet
will be comfy. Now,
that's a trend we can get

NBC Drama Is Taut With

FYI Televsion, Inc.
Children are our most pre-
cious resource. That's something
the parents on the new drama
"Crisis;' premiering Sunday at
10 p.m. on NBC, are reminded
of when a bus full of their chil-
dren is taken hostage. Some
of the country's most power-
fiul parents have children on
the bus, and they'll do what-
ever it takes to get them back
The kids are students of Bal-
lard High, which educates the
progeny of Washington, D.C.'s
elite. Political players, CEOs
and even the president of the
United States have a child in the
school. The drama is suspense-
fill and with all the recent news
stories about kids and schools,
the producers stay mindful
about what is appropriate.
"I have a kid in hi-zh
school,";' says executive rw
producer Rand Rav-
ich. "I think we all are fl

revolve mostly around my chil-
dren. So, while we are respectful,
we are also in the field of enter-
tainment, but when you want
to be dramatic, you, as a writer,
you go to that well: What do
you hope for? What do you de-
sire? What do you fear? That's
what we want to watch while
being sensitive and respectfully "
The kidnappers use that fear
to control the parents' actions.
Gillian Anderson plays Meg
Fitch, a CEO of a multinational
IT conglomerate. She's a power-
fuil woman, and her daughter
(Halston Sage) is one of the chil-
dren who have been captured.
"Rachael Taylor is playing my
sister,"' Anderson reveals, "who
is also an FBI agent on this par-
ticular case, and we have been
estranged for 16 years, and it's
the explosion of this event that
kind of brings their
. d\.1tunctional rela-
ti honship into the
present, and we
get to learn little
by little, poten-
tially, why they
have ended
up where they
have in their es-
trangement, and
also, I think, ex-
pI1. re a little bit about
the emotional
\ between
the two of
S them and
what that
stems from.
And that's
one of the
great things
about the
show is
that you
hlne all the

action and the thriller aspect
of it, but there are lots of rela-
tionships that flow through the
whole thing, whether it's sib-
lings or parents, child or teacher
or romantic relationships that
have a very active and compel-
ling emotional life at the same
time, and this is one of them."
Dermot Mulroney plays one
of the parents on the field trip,
but there's more to the character
than what is on the surface. "For
me,";' Mulroney says, "it's one of
the most intriguing parts of this
character, and this character is
one of the most intriguing that
I've ever played, to be honest
with you. The thing that roots
me as an actor in the character
and roots the character into the
story is the love of family. All the
other characters share that in one
way or another, so, for me, that's
something that each of the ac-
tors have in common, as well as
the characters, so that you begin
to piece together the depth of his
motivation, not just a casual toss
off, 'I'm going to throw this plot
together.' He's doing it to bring
his family back together, and
you will learn later he has even
grander goals to accomplish."
There are twists and turns for
every character and nothing is
what it seems on the surface. For
her role, Taylor worked with an
FBI agent. "Which was an abso-
lute treat;' says the actress. "This
woman very generously gave
me her time and did talk to me
about some of the difficulties that
women have, you know, ascend-
ing through the ranks of federal
agencies. And I think that is a
difficulty that could apply across
many different professions. But
what was interesting to me was
just hearing her dogged deter-
mination and her focus and also
her explaining that, for both
genders of federal agents, once
they get into that analytical way
of thinking, they really never
are off the job. She managed to
navigate it, but [it took] tolls on
her personal life in different ways
because of the adjustment that is

FBI Agent Susie Dunn (Rachael
Taylor) is one of those in charge
of bringing the abducted children
home safely on "Crisis," premiering
I Sunday at 10 p.m. on NBC.

required to your thinking when
you have ajob that is to serve and
protect the country or the like."
For Secret Service Agent Mar-
cus Finley (Lance Gross), the bus
kidnapping coincides with his
first day on the job protecting the
president's son. "Marcus Finley
is a protector," Gross says. "He's
a Secret Service agent. And, you
know, on his first day of working
the president's son's detail, it's, to
him, the most important day of
his life. And losing the president's
son, along with the rest of the
students, I mean, it even makes
it that much bigger for him. So,
he teams up with the FBI to solve
this case and get the kids back"

Q: Is it true that Brooke
Burke-Charvet won't
be back as co-host of
"Dancing With the Stars"?
I hope not, because I
really like her! -- Fiona D.,
via email

A: Hot on the heels of the
sudden ouster of music
director Harold Wheeler
and his 28-person
orchestra, the folks at
"DWTS" have created
another shakeup in the
firing of Brooke, who's
been replaced by season
11's third-place finisher,
FOX sports reporter Erin
Andrews. Beginning
Monday at 8 p.m., Erin
joins perennial host Tom
Bergeron for season
18 of the hit dancing-
competition show.

As for the show's musical
accompaniment, word
is that the show will use
sound recordings and a
small electric band led
by composer Ray Chew
to attract a younger
audience. To me, this
is a huge mistake: Part
of the show's appeal
was its elegant, big-
band ballroom feel that
Harold and his orchestra
provided, and to replace
that with a small electric
band? No, thank you.

Q! Do you have any news
on the reincarnation of
NBC's "Heroes"? -- Daniel
G., Birmingham, Ala.

A: NBC has confirmed
that it will air a 13-episode
"miniseries event" called
"Heroes Reborn" in 2015.
It is being billed as a
stand-alone series, but
no word yet on which,
if any, characters from
the original series will be

resurrected. According
to the show's website:
"NBC will launch a
digital series prior to the
2015 premiere that will
introduce the characters
and new storylines.
This leveraging of social
media is a way for fans
to re-engage with what
was one [of] the true
pioneers in multiplatform

Q: What are Michael
J. Fox's plans now that
his sitcom has been
canceled? -- Kathy I., via

A: Michael will return
later this season to "The
Good Wife" as Louis
Canning for a multi-
episode, season-ending
story arc. As for "The
Michael J. Fox Show," a
representative at NBC
says that the network
will air the remaining
episodes at some point
this season. Also pulled

Erin Andrews

from NBC's Thursday
night lineup was fresh-
man comedy "Sean Saves
the World," starring "Will
and Grace" favorite Sean

Best friends Emily Morti-
mer (HBO's "The News-
room") and Dolly Wells
("Bridget Jones's Diary")
star on the improvised

comedy "Doll & Em,"
premiering Wednesday
at 10 p.m. on HBO. The
series is written by the
two women and shows
what happens when a
Hollywood actress hires
her childhood friend as
a personal assistant.
Doll (Dolly Wells) has
just broken up with her

boyfriend in London and
heads to Los Angeles
to hang out with her
best friend, Em (Emily
Mortimer). Being an
assistant to her actress
friend sounds like a
great idea until Doll is
stuck babysitting Susan
Sarandon's kids, fending
off rude guys in hot
tubs and doing very odd
jobs. There are perks,
especially when in a later
episode Doll meets John

When "Da Vinci's

in chaos. Leonardo
(Tom Riley) is pushing
himself to his limits to
defend the city against

to give up his quest for
the Book of Leaves, or

about his mother. Riley
is ecstatic about playing
Leonardo again, even
though his character can
sometimes seem a bit

Trophy Wife
9:31 p.m. on ABC
"The Wedding Part Two"
Kate continues planning her
perfect wedding despite all
of the chaos surrounding
her, including the arrival

schizophrenic. "That is
the joy of it," says Riley.
"Certainly the way he's
written, he seems to be
a million things at once.
At the beginning, it's
kind of tough to throw
an audience a character
that seems like he's
coming from a dozen
different directions,
and then over time you
get a chance for it to
coalesce into a whole.
And that's been the most
fun thing in making him.
In season one, he was an
enfant terrible, and he
behaved appallingly. In
season two, we see him
as an adolescent, and
hopefully in the future
we'll see him become a
man. So, going on that
journey has been, for
me, certainly the most
exciting thing about
playing it. Yeah, there's
a fair amount of romp.
For me, personally,
Leonardo's quest has
always trumped any
pursuit of the flesh. His
pursuit for knowledge,
his desire to learn, to
go deeper, it's always

The comedian's love
affair with HBO continues
when "John Leguizamo's
"Ghetto Klown" debuts at
10 p.m. on Saturday. For
Leguizamo's fifth HBO
special, he's adapted
his award-winning
one-man stage show
that takes viewers
through the highs and
lows of his personal
and professional life.
The special was taped
in November last year
at the New Jersey
Performing Arts Center in
Newark, N.J. Leguizamo
begins with his childhood
and tells stories about
the many challenges he's
faced throughout his
life. While he was riding
high doing television and
movies at the pinnacle
of his career, he still had
recurring feelings of self-
doubt, negativity and
depression. He gets real,
but he does it in such a
way that even the most
poignant moments will
make you smile. This is
Leguizamo at his best.
