SIDE DISH

Mary Margaret's:

Class, good food
sometimes you need to slow down
and appreciate the simple things
around you:
The little, white lights adorning a
wreath, turning
ordinary balsam into
f g sparkling reminders
of yesterday's magical
Christmases.
A gold plate on the
Stable, suddenly elevat-
ing you from middle
y to upper class.
S The identifiable
Christy growl of Louis
Armstrong's voice
FEINBERG singing "White
COLUMNIST Christmas" ... just like
the ones you used to know.
Mary Margaret's Tea and Biscuit in
Arcadia is just the place to pause and
enjoy the moment (and the food).
The restaurant, located in a historic
1926 building, is an excellent place to have
a sandwich, salad and/or soup for lunch.
It's also a great option for a cup of tea or
dessert while antiquing in Arcadia, which
is how I first discovered Mary Margaret's.
There's no place quite like Mary
Margaret's, at least not one that I know of
in this region.
Lunch food is served with more class
and care than many fine-dining places.
Guests are seated at tables decorated
with beautiful tablecloths (green, red or
white right now for Christmas). A large
gold plate is located at each place setting,
along with a cloth napkin rolled neatly
in a ring. The feel is that you are in your
grandmother's dining room (because who
else cares enough to let you use the cloth
napkins?).
Owners Dennis Tyson and Bruce
Neveau named the restaurant after their
mothers. They often can be seen wearing
old-fashioned tuxedos and even top hats.
The servers mirror the owners' crispness
with the white shirts and vests.
I'm not a tea person, but there are
several kinds offered, including hibiscus,
chai, English breakfast organic, Earl Grey,
lemon lavender and Mary Margaret's
signature blend, which is described as: "a
delicate organic white tea blended with
soft rose petals, and an aromatic touch of
citrus," the website states.
The menu includes two main sections
for sandwiches and salads. I keep mean-
ing to try the signature sandwich, which
is "sliced smoked turkey, horseradish
Havarti cheese and cheddar cheese, fresh
tender asparagus spears, Dijon mustard
and mayonnaise." It's served on home-
made bread too.
There's also Margaret's chicken salad
sandwich, which is Bruce's mother's
original recipe served on a croissant. It's
served with a generous side of fresh fruit,
and it isn't plopped in a watery mess
on the plate. Nope, it's presented in a
classy way (just like everything else at
Mary Margaret's) on a lettuce leaf with a
strawberry split like a butterfly.
The menu also offers lobster bisque,
clam chowder and a soup of the day.
The soups are served with your choice of
crackers or a teapot-shaped tea biscuit,
which took me about 10 minutes to figure
out that it reminded me of a cookie from
my childhood: Nilla wafers.
If you save room for dessert, guests can
try one of the distinctive sweets, such as
English scones, white chocolate bread
pudding, English sticky toffee pudding,
Bruce's dessert crepes, a chocolate log roll
or Malva pudding.
Stop in at Mary Margaret's for lunch or
tea, and enjoy being catered to in a way
that would make Mary and Margaret
proud of their sons.

Aquarium 'feasible,' but practical?


By BRENDA BARBOSA
STAFF WRITER
After months of research and analy-
sis, a consultant has concluded that an
aquarium in downtown Punta Gorda
is a viable proposal, based on location
and future population projections,
but the cost to pull it off might be too
steep to handle.
In a 96-page report released
Thursday, ConsultEcon the
firm hired by the Charlotte Harbor
Aquarium committee to investigate
the feasibility of an aquarium in
various location across the county
- determined that the former City
Marketplace site in downtown Punta
Gorda is a suitable location for a
50,000-square-foot aquarium with
250,000 gallons of water, given the


Supporters would have to raise
between $60 million and
$67 million, which includes
$32 million for total development
costs, and an operating endowment
of $30 million.
site's proximity to Charlotte Harbor
and the interstate. An aquarium that
size in that location, the study found,
could generate between 134,000 and
341,000 attendees annually, with
a mid-range annual attendance of
238,000 made up of local residents, as
well as out-of-town visitors.
But to construct and operate such a
facility, the $55,000 study concludes,
supporters would have to raise


between $60 million and $67 million
- up to $32 million for total de-
velopment costs, and an operating
endowment of $30 million to cover a
potential $1.5 million annual short-
fall between the cost to operate the
facility and the revenue it brings in.
ConsultEcon estimates the aquarium
will earn $3 million a year, based on its
projected attendance.
Aquarium supporters believe it will
cost a lot less to operate the facility
since the researchers used lower ticket
prices, higher staffing numbers and
lower attendance numbers when
calculating revenue and cost.
"The city still feels that that kind
of an attraction would be a definite
positive for the downtown and for

Ethics board clears Commissioner


Constance, irks complainants


By GARY ROBERTS
STAFF WRITER
MURDOCK The same two in-
dividuals who filed separate ethics
charges against Charlotte County
Commissioner Tricia Duffy, unsuccess-
fully, are criticizing the state's review
process after two more of their formal
complaints were dismissed against
Commissioner Chris Constance.
Duffy was cleared of conflict-of-in-
terest charges relating to her vote in


favor of $9 million in
tax increment financing
for Parkside improve-
ments. Residents Robert
Herriman and David
Kesselring made similar
allegations against
Constance, who also sup-
CONSTANCE ported the plan, claiming
he stands to benefit
financially from the Parkside project.
And similar to the assertions
made against Duffy, Constance


was vindicated when the Florida
Commission on Ethics, in Sep-
tember, rejected the complaints on
the grounds that no special private
gain would result from the county's
action.
Constance did not return phone calls
seeking comment. But Kesselring and
Herriman said the system is not equita-
ble when ethics complaints are thrown
out without a thorough investigation.

Officials: Boat race will watch for turtles, manatees

MURDOCK -Wildlife
advocates expressed
concern Thursday that
the Charlotte Harbor
Super Boat Grand Prix
comes at a time when sea
turtles and manatees may
be just offshore in the
Gulf of Mexico.
But race officials say
a plan is in place to look
out for sea life and make
sure it is protected from
the racing boats.
Jerry York has been
making the rounds
updating county officials
and residents on the
planning for the inau-
gural Charlotte Harbor

at the Charlotte County
Beaches and Shores
Advisory Committee to
answer questions and to
try to quell any worries
about the race, which is
scheduled for April 12-13,
2014, off Manasota Key.
Board member Dick
Whitney asked Wilma
Katz who attended the
committee meeting if
she had any environmen-
tal concerns. Katz and
Zoe Bass are the primary
permit holders overseeing
the CoastalWildlife Club's
sea turtle nesting patrols
on Manasota Key.
"This (race) is just
prior to when sea turtles
nesting season should
really kick in," Katz said.
Locally, sea turtle
nesting season starts
May 1. Sea turtles could
be mating offshore when


the race is scheduled,
Katz said. Also, there's
the potential presence of
manatees offshore. Katz
suggested she had heard
about spectators in boats
after races striking sea
turtles and sea mammals,
but Katz said she hasn't
received verification of
those reports.
York explained heli-
copters with spotters are
trained to spot sea turtles,
manatees, dolphins or
other sea mammals an
hour before and after race
events. Twice, he's seen
a race stopped for sea
turtles and sea mammals.
At a recent race offshore
in KeyWest, York said, a
race was delayed for 45
minutes and the course
realigned due to the
presence of sea turtles.
"Since 1985, running


nine to 10 races every
year, there's never been
an incident of a hurt sea
turtle or manatee," he
said. "We don't want to be
the first race since 1985
to hurt a sea turtle or
mammal."
The Peace River Wildlife
Center volunteered to be
at the race to address any
injured wildlife, York said.
As with prior presen-
tations, York was asked
about traffic and public
safety. He explained how
the race will be advertised
as a no-parking event
on Manasota Key, and
how 11 parking areas
have been identified
on the mainland in
the Englewood area.
Spectators then will be
shuttled to the public
Englewood Beach on
50 to 70 buses, depending


upon the need. York plans
for a crowd of 80,000 over
three days of events.
"We will also have
signage on State Road
776 advising people not
to come down (Beach
Road)," York said.
When asked about pub-
lic safety, York said the
Charlotte County Sheriff's
Office now is reviewing a
60-page operational plan.
Private security, sheriff's
deputies, the Englewood
Area Fire Control District
and Charlotte County
Fire/EMS will provide for
the public safety, he said.


Super Boat Inter-
national addresses all the
offshore permitting and
other issues for the race.
SBI has a permit appli-
cation under review with
the U.S. Coast Guard.
Depending upon approv-
als, York said the actual
race course will extend
from north of Stump Pass
just past the northern
end of the public beach.
The boat race courses,
he said, are generally 350
feet off the shoreline.
Organizers also plan for
a parade in Punta Gorda.

Rock jetty proposed for Manasota Key


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

MURDOCK-With
state park officials' sup-
port, Charlotte County
may soon propose a rock
jetty at the southern
tip of Manasota Key to
help stem erosion and
maintain Stump Pass.
"It's a win-win for
everyone," state park
manager Chad Lach told
the county's Beaches
and Shores Advisory
Committee on Thursday.
Michael Poff vice
president of Coastal
Engineering Consultants
- has provided the coun-
ty with options for the
long-term maintenance of
Stump Pass. They include
a variety of structures to
help slow the filling in of


Stump Pass and maintain
Gulf beaches. After dis-
cussing options with park
officials, they prefer a rock
revetment in Stump Pass
State Park at the southern
end of Manasota Key.
"It would be a solution
without causing an imme-
diate impact on (the Palm
Island Resort, the north-
ern tip of Knight Island),"
Poff said. "The main
concern of the state park
is what will happen to the
shoreline immediately
south of the structure."
The county is not ready
to file an application for
permitting. Poff said the
goal is to continue with
computer models and
"sensitivity analysis" to
fine-tune the location
and dimensions of a rock
revetment.


"We used history to
try to site the structure,"
he said, explaining the
idea will be to capture
sand along an alignment
of the Manasota Key
shoreline as it was in the
1980s, when Stump Pass
and the Gulf shoreline
were more stable.
Poff also said a rock
revetment can be de-
signed so that some sand
can slip through it. He
suggested the size of the
boulders used to build a
jetty can determine how
much sand will continue
on its southern flow. The
plan has also identified
offshore sand sources to
renourish the north end
of Knight Island or wher-
ever else sand is needed
for eroded beaches.

Model delegates pass the torch


By IAN ROSS
STAFF WRITER

MURDOCK -For
Katie Rioux, being a dele-
gate is a family tradition.
Like her brother and
sister before her, Rioux, a
sophomore, is a member
of Port Charlotte High
School's Model United
Nations team.
"They taught me
everything I know.
Honestly, I look to them
for everything," Rioux
said earlier this week.
In Model United
Nations, students
represent UN countries
and international


organizations and work
together to solve crisis
scenarios. School teams
compete to be the most
effective representatives
in conferences before a
panel of judges.
Port Charlotte High
School's Model United
Nations program has
about 50 students, and
it participates in six
conferences a year.
Bob Johnson, the social
studies teacher who
oversees the program,
said his students take its
seriously.
When Johnson started
the program in 1995,
the team went to its first


conference at Florida
Gulf Coast University's
Naples campus. To the
members' surprise, they
took first place, and have
done so every year since.
But the 18-year streak is
just icing on the cake for
this team.
The real glory comes
from placing in larg-
er, more prestigious
conferences.
"Mostly, our compe-
tition is the top private
academies literally
around the world,"
Johnson said. "It's a great
opportunity for our kids
to measure themselves
against those kids and


see they can not only
compete but also win."
According to Johnson,
the program's strength
comes from a kind of
esprit de corps that
motivates experienced
delegates to train the
next generation. Port
Charlotte High School
students reach out to
train elementary debate
teams and middle school
Model United Nations
teams. By the time
students arrive at PCHS
as freshmen, they already
have experience.
Rioux was one of the
middle school students
coached by Port Charlotte


High School's MUN del-
egates. When she was a
sixth-grader at Charlotte
Academy, her brother,
John, started a middle
school MUN program
there and she joined.
She currently trains
Charlotte Academy's
MUN program.
Previously, Rioux had
been on the team as a
country representative,
but for the next confer-
ence, at the University of
Florida, her new role will
be more demanding and
require greater and more
specific knowledge.
"I'm moving into a
crisis committee, which


can be a lot more chal-
lenging. ... You have to
know what you're talking
about because there's not
necessarily an exact topic
you can prepare for,"
Rioux said.
Rioux is taking on the
role of Thomas S. Rain,
assistant director for
policy for the Centers for
Disease Control, in her
school's Model United
Nations Team.
To prepare, Rioux said
"I'm focusing a lot on the
person I'm representing,
learning everything I can
about him and what the
CDC can do."

Pentathlon



World Cup



events coming



to Sarasota


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
SARASOTA COUNTY
- Another major inter-
national sporting event is
coming to Sarasota after
the International Modern
Pentathlon Union select-
ed the county as host of
four major pentathlon
events including three
World Cup competitions
beginning next year.
The modern pentathlon
is an Olympic sport that
consists of five events:
200-meter indoor swim-
ming, fencing, equestrian
show jumping and a
combined final event of
laser pistol shooting and
a 3,200-meter (two-mile)
cross-country run.
According to the U.S.
Olympic website, both
men and women com-
plete all five events of the
modern pentathlon in
one day. A point system
for each event is based on
a standard performance
earning 1,000 points.
The pentathlon made
its debut at the Ancient
Olympic Games in 708
B.C. The modern pen-
tathlon was introduced in
1912. Earlier this year, the
sport survived a shakeup
of Olympic events, and
was made one of the
Olympics' core sports
through the 2020 games.
The events start in
Sarasota next year with
the World Cup Final in
June. The area will host
the World Cup first-round
competition in 2015,
before hosting another
World Cup Final in 2016.
The top 36 men and top
36 women from the sport
are invited to compete in
those events.
Sarasota will also host
the U.S. Pentathlon
Olympic Team trials in
2016 the first time an
Olympic qualifying event
for pentathlon will be
held in the United States.
Athletes will vie for a
chance to participate in
the 2016 Olympic Games
in Brazil. Sarasota was
selected over a group
of cities in the bidding
to host championship
pentathlon events that
included Cairo, Egypt;
Frankfurt, Germany;
Acapulco, Mexico; Rome,
Italy; Budapest, Hungary;
and Buenos Aires,
Argentina.
"For the first time in
over 40 years, the inter-
national championship
for one of the oldest and


grandest Olympic sports
will return to the United
States," USA Pentathlon
Executive Director Rob
Stull said Tuesday in a
statement. "Sarasota's co-
hesive vision and excep-
tional presentation (that)
secured World Cup events
in each of the next three
years is an amazing feat
and a significant oppor-
tunity for the growth of
pentathlon in the United
States and throughout
North America."
"Winning these presti-
gious events constitutes
a seminal moment
in the evolution of
Sarasota and Bradenton
into truly world-class
communities," former
Florida secretary of state
and congresswoman
Katherine Harris, who
helped to lead the local
organizing committee for
the event, said in a state-
ment. "The pentathlon
brings together a diverse
array of Olympic sports
and their associated
communities, giving our
region a tremendous op-
portunity for exposure to
a broad global audience."
Nathan Benderson Park
and the Shelby Aquatic
Center in Sarasota will
play host to pentathlon
events. The swimming
event will take place at
the Shelby facility, while
the rest will take place at
Benderson Park.
Landing the pentathlon
is another major catch
for the Benderson facility,
which was awarded
the 2017 World Rowing
Championships in
September. Officials ex-
pect that event to attract
more than 1,500 Olympic-
caliber athletes from
more than 70 countries.
Local officials have
pledged $200,000 for the
event, with Visit Sarasota,
Manatee County, the
Benderson Corporation
and the Gulf Coast
Community Foundation
each committing $50,000.
Any money over budget
would have to be raised
privately.
"This is incredible,
and we're very excited,"
Sarasota County Sports
Director Nicole Rissler
said Tuesday. "We have
to get to work quickly be-
cause the first event will
be in June. This allows us
to have Olympic-caliber
athletes here for the next
three years."

Sylvia Nila Flood

Sylvia Nila Flood, 88, of Englewood, Fla., died
peacefully Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013, in her sleep at
the Tidewell Hospice House in Bradenton, Fla.,
after a brief struggle with cancer.
She was born Sept. 12, 1925, in South St. Paul,
Minn., the daughter of Herman and Hulda (nee
Riedel) Rabold.
Even though hard times in the Great
Depression limited her formal education to the
eighth grade, Sylvia was well-read, well-spoken,
well-dressed, an avid fan of crossword puzzles,
a lover of life and a disappointed Cubs fan. She
spent much of her adult life in the Chicago, Ill.,
suburb of Norridge, Ill., where she was active in
civic affairs and the local PTA, serving as pres-
ident for a term. Sylvia loved winter weekends
spent snowmobiling in the Wisconsin Dells, and
adored snow until the moment she retired to
Florida.
As one of the pioneering residents of
Polynesian Village in Englewood, Sylvia
enthusiastically embraced the Florida lifestyle
- collecting sharks' teeth on Manasota Beach;
growing citrus trees in her backyard; catching
shrimp in Lemon Bay; entertaining her grand-
children and great-grandchildren; and, above
all, playing golf and playing it well. For years she
led exercise classes for area residents, and was a
faithful member of Curves, right up to her cancer
diagnosis in September. She was a member
of and active volunteer with Christ Lutheran
Church in Englewood.
Sylvia is survived by two sons, Terry (Carolyn)
Hedstrom of Sarasota, Fla., and Steven (Marti)
Larsen of Rockford, Ill.; brother, Clarence (Ellen)
Rabold of St. Paul, Minn.; three sisters, Elfa
Brenke of Le Sueur, Minn., JoAnn (Bill) Guerin
of St. Paul, and Bernice Shellenbarger of Inver
Grove Heights, Minn.; six grandchildren, Nancy
(Larry) Wigley of Minnetonka, Minn., Scott
(Libby) Hedstrom of Williamsburg, Va., Lanette
(Jayson) Lemmer of Rothschild, Wis., Vanessa
(Charles) Strada of Lake in the Hills, Ill., Krista
Larsen of Milwaukee, Wis., and Cameron Larsen
of Rockford; four great-grandchildren, Benjamin
and ZacharyWigley, and Eric and Alex Hedstrom;
and three nieces, Gloria Farringer of Redwood
Falls, Minn., Susan (Leon) Berg of Starbuck,
Minn., and Nila (Miguel "Mike") Parages of
Miami, Fla. She was preceded in death by her
parents; husbands, Reuben Hedstrom, Edwin
Larsen, James Flood and Thomas Lans; her son,
David Larsen; grandson, Davey Larsen; two
sisters, Esther Krause and Agnes Krause; and two
brothers, Oscar and Edmund Rabold.
Interment will be private. In lieu of flowers,
please leave memorial gifts to Tidewell Hospice,
Sarasota, at www.tidewell.org. You may express
your condolences to the family at www.lemon
bayfh.com.
Arrangements are by Lemon Bay Funeral
Home and Cremation Services.

I OUR VIEW

Move county

archives to

the library

OUR POSITION: County
archives need a new home; rein-
state impact fee to help fund it.
he Charlotte County His-
torical Center on Bayshore
Road is falling apart. In
a presentation to the Charlotte
County Commission, staff
detailed interior and exterior
deterioration of doors, floors,
walls, windows, roof sheathing,
foundation pilings, plumbing,
heating and cooling systems and
decking. The amount budgeted
to repair the center ($696,000),
which houses the county's
archives and hosts historical
events and programs, is more
than the original purchase price
of the facility ($584,000).
With a countywide library
master plan now under devel-
opment, the question for the
county is whether to sink more
money into the historical center
or move the archives to an ex-
isting, new or expanded library/
archive center somewhere else.
Complicating the decision is
the county's agreement with
the Florida Community Trust,
which awarded $390,000 toward
the purchase of the facility. The
county would need to get FCT
approval to change the use of the
property.
Pouring more money into the
existing historical center clearly
is a bad idea. Just as clear is the
county's need to maintain the
archive material and continue
offering historical programs
for the thousands of residents
who participate in them each
year. Fortunately, there is a
recent project that can guide the
county's decision-making, the
expansion of the Englewood-
Charlotte Library, which now
houses archival material cover-
ing the history of its West County
communities.
There are several possibilities
for a new permanent home for
the archives currently stored
at the Bayshore site. One is to
include an archival element in
the proposed redevelopment of
the Cultural Center of Charlotte
County, which includes the Port
Charlotte Library. The combina-
tion would expose the archives
and historical programs to a
whole new audience of Cultural
Center regulars. We can envision
the historical center and Cultural
Center offering courses on local
history and classes focused
on individual oral histories
and genealogy. That option is
dependent on the passage of the
1-cent sales tax in November
2014, which is expected to
include funding for the proposed
$15 million Cultural Center
redevelopment.
Another option is to include
archive and program space in
a new South County library.
Commissioner Chris Constance
has been the most vocal sup-
porter of building a new library,
but it remains to be seen if the
project would be included in the
new library master plan, which
is not expected to be completed
until January 2015. Among the
complexities of the new library
idea is whether or not to relocate
Punta Gorda's popular, but
undersized, library into the new
facility or keep both.
Regardless of where the
archives go, the library master
plan discussion should prompt
the commission to reinstate its
library impact fee, which was
suspended for another nine
months in June 2013. With new
construction on the rebound,
the amount of impact fee
revenue lost will continue to rise,
putting the burden of library
construction costs wholly on
existing residents rather than
spreading it to new residents.
Impact fee moratoriums never
spur construction, because the
amount levied is a tiny fraction
of new home costs. The county
archives need a new home


and the county should tap all
revenue sources at its disposal to
fund it.

LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

Looking for truck
that damaged car

Editor:
On Nov. 22, my daughter
(who is pregnant with my
second grandchild) and my
son-in-law (who is recovering
from gallbladder surgery),
went to the Town Center mall
and parked by where the lawn
mowers are outside for sale at
Sears.
At 7 p.m., after spending
no more than a half-hour in
the store, they came out to
find the front of their Dodge
Avenger badly damaged. My
daughter had commented to
her husband that the Dodge
Ram that they had parked next
to was so big and shiny and
how the person really takes
good care of their car. Well,
the hit-and-run was witnessed
by a customer who called
the police and a report was
written.
Maybe, if I give your readers
a description of the vehicle,
someone will come forward
and let us know who the un-
caring person was who could
do something like this. It is a
black, shiny, lifted Dodge Ram
pickup truck with damage to
its right side and missing a
round part of the rim that was
left at the scene. If anybody
knows who this might be,
please contact the Sheriff's
Office. Nobody should get
away with something like this.
Thank God it wasn't a child
who was hit by this careless
person who thinks they can
get away with this. We are on
the lookout and hopefully all
of Charlotte County will be on
the lookout. Let's protect each
other!

Why did we not
know the facts?

Editor:
You can keep your current
health care insurance and
doctors, period. Not only was
that not true, strict regulations
concerning the grandfathering
of policies were written into
the law to ensure that as many
as 70 percent of both single
payer and employee policies
did not qualify.
The president and other
Democrats knew from the
inception of the Affordable
Care Act that it was not eco-
nomically sustainable without
the inclusion of significant


numbers of those policyhold-
ers. Simple proof of this is that
in 2010 Senate Republicans
proposed a resolution that
would allow owners to keep
their policies, which was killed
when Democrats voted unani-
mously against it. What is most
disturbing is the Affordable
Care Act passed and had the
support of many Americans
simply because they believed
they could continue to keep
their current policies and
doctors.
If in 2010 our elected
representatives knew you
probably could not keep your
current policy and doctor why
wasn't the public informed?
And this is the real duplicity. A
significant protection against
an over-stepping government
has always been our free and
impartial press. But increas-
ingly the so-called mainstream
media has become nothing
more than the talking heads
for a president whose policies
they prefer.
Like our elected officials, the
mainstream press knew but
failed to report an important
fact that would have altered
how many viewed this health
care act. What is worse than
bad government is a prejudi-
cial media because it margin-
alizes the truth.

Lopsided wealth
will hurt country

Editor:
I recently had the pleasure
of visiting the home of a
multimillionaire in Savannah,
Ga. It was the home of Owens-
Thomas. The family only lived
in Savannah for four months
of the year, the rest of the year
they lived to the west just shy
of the mountains on their
18 square miles of plantations
with their 300-plus slaves.
Even 180 years later their
level of wealth is staggering.
At a time in America when a
two-seater outhouse was a
measure of status, the Owen-
Thomas house had indoor
,second-floor running water
for their sinks, toilets and tubs.
Of course the CivilWar put
a damper on such wealth in
what is undeniably the single
biggest transfer of wealth inside
America from south to north.
One might say redistribution of
wealth instead of transfer even
though the word "redistribu-
tion" is a political lightning rod
among Republicans nowadays.
However, there is no better
example of disproportionate
wealth than in a slave vs. slave-
holder society. One might infer


that as wealth becomes more
and more lopsided society
becomes less and less healthy.
The south to north redistri-
bution gave rise to the great
robber barons like Rockefeller,
Ford, Vanderbilt, Morgan, etc.
This unfolding lopsidedness
eventually led to the Great
Depression of 1929. And again
today we are looking at a huge
reverse distribution of wealth
with the usual predictable
effects on the rank and file.
Perhaps if we let history be our
guide we can avoid another
catastrophic mess.

Rep.Radel
should resign

Editor:
I am writing because I do
not believe Trey Radel got a
slap on the wrist. A $250 fine,
one-year probation and a
luxury rehab center. Who pays
for that? Taxpayers?
If that were a normal person,
they would have paid far more
and been given jail time. He
had to have purchased the co-
caine more than the one time
he got caught. What kind of
people are in these postilions?
Gov. Scott is a thief. Now
this. Clinton got impeached for
a private matter. The amount
Mr. Radel has to pay shows
that he is not a first-time user.
If it punishes the Democrats,
let the Republicans go and
break the law. Mr. Radel
should resign from his position
to show respect for the voters.

Pesticides causing
all sorts of issues
Editor:
A recent New York Times
article stated that the number
of Monarch butterflies that
typically migrate to Mexico in
early November has dwindled
from 60 million last year to just
3 million this year; and they
thought last year's count was
low! Some feel this ancient, an-
nual migration from the north
is coming to an end.
Bees also have run into hard
times as their faltering num-
bers indicate.
The loss of these insects and
other types is partially attribut-
ed to pesticide use. Another
reason is the continued loss
of native vegetation. As U.S.
farms clear land to plant corn
for biofuels, (even land that
was once slated for conserva-
tion) their habitat is removed.
The article continued to


say also herbicides, such as
Roundup, contribute to the
loss of the butterflies' food
source. It was cited that Iowa
has lost almost 60 percent of
its milkweed, while another
study found 90 percent was
gone.
FYI: Insects are critical to
the web of life and pollinate
80 percent of our food crops.
The article went on to
say farms were not the only
problem but that development
is creating "biological deserts
that are roads, parking lots
and bluegrass lawns" and that
people plant plants that are
nice to look at but that often
create sterile conditions.
How can we help? We as a
municipality, and as an indi-
vidual, can protect our native
vegetation and/or plant more,
and think twice before using
pesticides and herbicides.

Cigar lounge
appreciative

Editor:
We would like to thank the
"original gang" who frequent-
ed Olde Punta Gorda Cigar
for coming back to the Cigar
Lounge after several changes
in ownership and giving
us a chance since we have
purchased the place. As new
owners, we truly appreciate
not only the guidance of the
original owner, but the people
who are giving this place a
chance since they stopped
patronizing the business over
the last several years.
We are also thankful for all
the previous customers who
have stopped by and checked
out the drastic changes made
and have given their seal of
approval for a place for friends
to meet without membership
fees.

Don't give up
on Obamacare
Editor:
The Wright Brothers' first
powered flight on the dunes
at Kitty Hawk was 120 feet.
Sixty-six years later we landed
a man on the moon.
Three days prior to that
historic flight Wilbur crashed
the delicate plane. Did they
throw up their hands and walk
away, claiming it couldn't be
done? No. They fixed the plane.
As a result, powered flight has
improved the well-being of mil-
lions of Americans in more ways
than I can mention here.
Yes, there were more than
a handful of naysayers. "It'll
never work." "Human flight is
just a passing fancy." "If man
were meant to fly he'd have
been born with wings," they
said. Like today, many of a
certain ilk were hoping for
failure, just so they could say,
"I told you so! What ridiculous
folly! What a waste!"
And now we see the
Affordable Care Act has
crashed on its first flight. But
it's back up and flying. Not
high enough for sure, but the
law has the potential of im-
proving the well-being of mil-
lions of Americans. Should
we throw up our hands and
walk away? Is that the kind of
Americans we've become? Is
that the kind of American you
want to be? A naysayer? Or
worse yet, a saboteur?
Or, are you just backing
the saboteurs? Are you a
forward thinker or a backward
thinker? Remember, they said
the same things about Social
Security and Medicare.
It's a free country, You decide.

The GOP's impeachment fever of Obama


history will record
that on Tuesday,
Dec. 3, 2013, the
U.S. House of Represen-
tatives Committee on the
Judiciary met to consid-
er the impeachment of
Barack Hussein Obama.
They didn't use
that word, of course.
Republican leaders frown
on such labeling because
it makes the House major-
ity look, well, crazy.
It is, Rep. Steve King,
R-Iowa, said from the
dais, "the word that we
don't like to say in this
committee, and I'm not
about to utter here in this
particular hearing."
One of the majority's
witnesses, Georgetown
law professor Nicholas
Rosenkranz, encouraged
the Republicans not to
be so shy. "I don't think
you should be hesitant
to speak the word in this
room," he said. "A check
on executive lawlessness
is impeachment."
This gave the
Republican lawmakers
courage. "I'm often asked
this," said Rep. Doug
Collins of Georgia. "You


got to go up there, and
you just impeach him."
Rep. Blake Farenthold
of Texas, who has said
there are enough votes
in the House to impeach
Obama, added: "We've
also talked about the
I-word, impeachment,
which again I don't think
would get past the Senate
in the current climate....
Is there anything else we
can do?"
Why, yes, there is, con-
gressman: You can hold
hearings that accomplish
nothing but allow you to
sound fierce for your most
rabid constituents.
The Republicans in the
House know there is no
chance of throwing this
president from office.
Yet at least 13 of the
22 Republicans on the


panel have threatened or
hinted at impeachment
of Obama, his appointees
or his allies in Congress.
They've proposed this as
the remedy to just about
every dispute or political
disagreement, from Syria
to Obamacare.
Tuesday's hearing was
titled "The President's
Constitutional Duty to
Faithfully Execute the
Laws." The unanimous
view among Republicans
was that Obama had not
done his duty, and it's true
that this president has
stretched the bounds of
executive authority almost
as much as his predeces-
sor, whose abuses both-
ered Republicans much
less (and Democrats
much more).
But what to do about it?
They've failed at cutting
off funding, they've had
difficulty suing Obama
in court and they lost
the 2012 election. That
basically leaves them with
the option of making loud
but ineffectual noises
about high crimes and
misdemeanors.
In recent days, Rep.


Steve Stockman of
Texas, one of the more
exotic members of the
Republican caucus, has
distributed proposed
Articles of Impeachment to
his colleagues. Last month,
20 House Republicans filed
Articles of Impeachment
against Attorney General
Eric Holder. A month
earlier, Rep. Michele
Bachmann of Minnesota
accused Obama of "im-
peachable offenses."
Rep. Trey Radel of
Florida, before his cocaine
arrest and guilty plea,
invoked the prospect of
impeaching Obama over
gun policy. Rep. Duncan
Hunter (R-Calif.) raised
the specter of impeach-
ment over Obama's threat
to bomb Syria without
congressional approval.
Sen. Jim Inhofe
said Obama could be
impeached over the
attack on Americans
at Benghazi, Libya,
while fellow Oklahoma
Republican Sen. Tom
Coburn said in August
that Obama was "getting
perilously close" to
meeting the standard for


impeachment (though he
called Obama a "personal
friend"). Sen. Tim Scott of
South Carolina thought
it would have been an
impeachable offense if
Obama unilaterally raised
the debt ceiling. Texas
Sen. Ted Cruz branded
Obama "lawless."
On the House Judiciary
panel, impeachment
has been floated by GOP
Reps. Jason Chaffetz (over
Benghazi), Louie Gohmert
and King (default on
the debt), Darrell Issa
(presidential patronage),
Trent Franks (Defense of
Marriage Act enforcement)
and Lamar Smith (who
said Obama's record on
immigration comes "aw-
fully close" to violating the
oath of office). Rep. Tom
Marino of Pennsylvania
gets creativity points for
proposing the impeach-
ment of Senate Majority
Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.
At Tuesday's hearing, the
committee chairman, Bob
Goodlatte, R-Va., accused
Obama of "picking and
choosing which laws to
enforce" and of being
"the first president since


Richard Nixon to ignore a
duly enacted law simply
because he disagrees with
it."
Contributed Smith:
"The president has
ignored laws, failed to
enforce laws, under-
mined laws and changed
laws, all contrary to the
Constitution."
The majority's witnesses
added to the accusations.
George Washington
University's Jonathan
Turley said Obama had
"claimed the right of the
king to essentially stand
above the law."
This excited Franks,
who embraced im-
peachment back in 2011.
Obama's actions, he said,
"could be considered royal
prerogatives, which is, if
my history's right, what
we had that little unpleas-
antness with Great Britain
about."
Yikes! Why bother with
impeachment? They need
a revolution.

A case for containing Iran s nuclear program


critics of the agree-
ment with Iran con-
cerning its nuclear
program are right about
most things but wrong
about the most important
things. They understand
the agreement's manifest
and manifold defects and
its probable futility. Crucial
components of Iran's nu-
clear infrastructure remain.
U.S. concessions intended
to cultivate the Iranian
regime's "moderates" are
another version of the fatal
conceit that U.S. policy can
manipulate other societies.
As is the hope that easing
economic sanctions will
create an Iranian constit-
uency demanding nuclear
retreat in exchange for
yet more economic relief.
Critics are, however, wrong
in thinking that any agree-
ment could control Iran's
nuclear aspirations. And
what critics consider the
agreement's three worst
consequences are actually
benefits.
The six-month agree-
ment, with ongoing


negotiations, makes it
impossible for the United
States to attack its nego-
tiating partner. Hence
the agreement constrains
Israel, which lacks the mil-
itary capacity to be certain
of a success commensurate
with the risks of attacking
Iran. Therefore there is no
alternative to a policy of
containment of a nuclear
Iran.
Iran's claim that its
nuclear program is for
power generation and
medical uses is risible. So
is the notion that negotia-
tions have any likely utility
establishing the predicate
for containment of an Iran
with nuclear weapons
or with the capacity to


produce them quickly.
There is a recently pub-
lished primer for the per-
plexed: "Unthinkable: Iran,
the Bomb, and American
Strategy" by Kenneth M.
Pollack of the Brookings
Institution. Measured in his
judgments, scrupulous in
presenting arguments with
which he disagrees, Pollack
comes to this conclusion:
"Going to war with Iran
to try to prevent it from
obtaining a nuclear arsenal
would be a worse course
of action than containing
Iran, even a nuclear Iran."
Some advocates of war
seem gripped by Thirties
Envy, a longing for the
clarity of the 1930s, when
appeasement failed to
slake the dictators' thirst
for territorial expansion.
But the incantation
"Appeasement!" is not an
argument. And the word
"appeasement" does not
usefully describe a sober
decision that war is an
imprudent and even ulti-
mately ineffective response
to the failure of diplomatic


and economic pressures
to alter a regime's choices
about policies within its
borders.
Israel's superb air force
is too small, when striking
over great distances at
hidden and hardened
targets, to do more than
set back Iran's program a
few years, at most. And an
attack might cause Iran
to expel the international
inspectors, and might
accelerate the crumbling
of the sanctions, thereby
speeding the reconstitution
of the weapon program.
A U.S. attack could
do much more damage
but could not prevent
reconstitution. So, if
stopping the program is
important enough for war,
is it important enough for
an invasion of a nation
with almost three times
the population of Iraq and
nearly four times the size?
In December 2011, Leon
Panetta, then secretary of
defense, said that if Iran
were seen "proceeding
with developing a nuclear


weapon" or had decided to
do that, the United States
would "take whatever steps
are necessary to stop it."
In March 2012, Barack
Obama said: "Iran's leaders
should understand that
I do not have a policy
of containment; I have
a policy to prevent Iran
from obtaining a nuclear
weapon." His red line was
the weaponization of fissile
material.
Yet in his Nov. 23
statement celebrating the
new agreement, Obama
spoke of wanting to be able
to "verify" that Iran "cannot
build a nuclear weapon."
If so, he rejects not only
containment but allowing
Iran to stop near "a
screwdriver's turn away
from" -weaponization.
But Pollack, writing many
months before the recent
agreement ratified Iran's
right to enrichment, said:
"As long as Iran is left
with the capacity to enrich
uranium, the right to
perform some enrichment
activity, and a stockpile


of LEU (low-enriched
uranium) ... then Iran will
have a breakout capabil-
ity. It could be a breakout
window as wide as many
months, perhaps even a
year, but Iran will have the
capability to manufacture
the fissile material for a
nuclear weapon."
The agreement will not
stop Iran from acquiring
nuclear weapons; only
a highly unlikely Iranian
choice can do that. The
agreement may, however,
prevent a war to prevent
Iran from acquiring such
weapons. If Pollack is right,
and he certainly is persua-
sive, we have two choices,
war or containment. Those
who prefer the former have
an obligation to clearly
say why its consequences
would be more predictable
and less dire than those
in the disastrous war with
Iraq.

Why Republicans can't address rising inequality


ofar, the Repub-
lican response to
President Barack
Obama's historic address
on economic inequality
has not veered from the
predictable cliches of tea
party rhetoric. It was ap-
propriately summarized
in a tweet from House
Speaker John Boehner,
complaining that the
Democrat in the White
House wants "more
government rather than
more freedom," ignoring
his challenge to Republi-
cans to present solutions
of their own.
But for Republicans
to promote real rem-
edies the kind that
would require more than
140 characters of text-
they first would have to
believe inequality is a real
problem. And there is no
evidence they do, despite
fitful attempts by GOP
leaders on Capitol Hill to
display their "empathy"
for the struggling, shrink-
ing middle class.


Back when Occupy
Wall Street briefly shook
up the national conver-
sation, House Majority
Leader Eric Cantor and
Budget Committee chair
Paul Ryan both professed
concern over the nation's
growing disparities of
wealth and income. But
their promises of proof
that they care and
more importantly, of pol-
icy proposals to address
what Cantor admits are
"big challenges" sim-
ply never materialized.
Meanwhile, working
Americans learned what
rich Republicans say
in private about these
sensitive topics when


the "47 percent" video
surfaced the following
summer, in the final
months of the 2012 presi-
dential campaign. In Mitt
Romney's unguarded
remarks to an audience
of super-wealthy Florida
financiers, the contempt
for anyone who has
benefited from public
programs (other than
banking bailouts) was
palpable. Whether that
sorry episode turned
the election is arguable,
but the GOP brand has
never recovered and
the perception that
Republicans like Romney
and Ryan are hostile to
the interests of working
people remains indelible.
Of course, the House
Republicans have done
nothing to diminish that
impression and every-
thing to reinforce it. They
have set about cutting
food stamps, killing
extended unemployment
benefits and rejecting
Medicaid expansion, as if


competing in demonstra-
tions of callous indif-
ference. They complain
about the lack of jobs -
so long as they can blame
Obama but undermine
every program designed
to relieve the suffering of
the jobless.
Callous or not, they are
certainly indifferent to
the injuries of inequality.
In a party consumed
by right-wing ideology
and market idolatry,
the further enrichment
of the super-rich at the
expense of everyone else
is a feature of capitalism,
not a bug. Whenever they
bray about "getting gov-
ernment out of the way,"
they mean removing the
last defenses against that
process.
With Pope Francis and
Obama a pair of the
world's most powerful
voices warning against
the dangers of social
exclusion and excessive
greed, we can expect
to hear expressions


of remorse, as well as
rage, from all the usual
right-wing suspects. But
what we shouldn't expect
is honesty. Republicans
know worsening inequal-
ity disturbs the great
majority of Americans, so
they cannot confess that
they aren't troubled at all.
Congress could begin
to address the income
gap, which conservative
policies have exacer-
bated for three decades.
Raising the minimum
wage significantly would
be a first step toward
restoring fairness.
Rebuilding the nation's
infrastructure and school
systems, rather than
letting them continuous-
ly decay, would substan-
tially raise employment
and improve incomes.
Removing obstacles
to unionization would
begin to level the gross
disparities in economic
power between the
1 percent and the rest of
us.


Now the president has
vowed to fight inequality
for the rest of his days
in office. He is taking
that fight directly to the
Republicans, who have
frustrated so many of his
initiatives. He will have
to cast aside the last illu-
sions of bipartisanship.
No matter what he
says or does, he will not
be able to win a higher
minimum wage, serious
jobs program or univer-
sal pre-school with the
other party controlling
Congress. But if he
consistently challenges
us and his adversaries
- to restore an American
dream that includes
everyone, he may yet
fashion a legacy worthy
of his transformative
ambitions.

How Obama's own shortcomings undercut Obamacare


hough problems
remain, indica-
tions that the
troubled HealthCare.gov
website has overcome
most of its early difficul-
ties may provide Presi-
dent Barack Obama with
some respite from the
bipartisan criticism that
has damaged his public
standing and threatened
Obamacare's future.
Still, with Republicans
unlikely to relax either
their criticism or efforts
to challenge the law in
court, he needs some
positive Obamacare de-
velopments to produce
a rebound in his job
approval and dispel the
damage from self-in-
flicted wounds to his
reputation for honesty.
Otherwise, the very
measure he hoped would

rhetoric to rally support
for his ideas, helped cre-
ate his current situation.
Perhaps the greatest
damage came from the
fallout from his repeated,
misleading promises
that, "if you like your
health insurance, you
can keep it."
Earlier, the messy roll-
out of the government's
health care website dis-
played these additional
shortcomings:
1. Inadequate efforts
since his election to
establish good working
relationships with
members of Congress,
both his own Democratic
allies and opposition
Republicans. Politico's
Todd Purdum recently
portrayed Obama accu-
rately as a "loner," citing

staff, wanting to cover

his dislike of spending
the hours wooing law-
makers as did the most
successful presidents.
2. The president's poor
management skills, a
result to some extent of
the fact that his previous
work- community
organizer, law professor
and legislator hardly
prepared him to manage
the federal government.
Ironically, for a president
once condemned for
relying on not-yet-
confirmed White House
"czars," the complex
Affordable Care Act is
a multi-agency task
crying out for putting
one person in overall
charge. Obama may
finally name one now,
but an Obamacare Czar
from the start could
have prevented some of
the law's organizational
problems.
3. Fallout from pass-
ing the law with only
Democratic votes in both
the House and Senate.
That was not totally
Obama's fault since
Republicans made clear
from the outset that they

we really need that argyle
sweater plopped in our
hands in half an hour as
opposed to the next day?
What would Pope Francis
say?
And won't all the
other alpha moguls want
their own drone fleets?
Howard Schultz will want
to drop your half-caf,
bone-dry, ristretto, venti,
four-pump, sugar-free,
cinnamon dolce, soy
skinny Starbucks latte on
the front step at 7 a.m.,
and Tim Cook will want
to deliver the latest Apple
toys the soonest, and
Disney's Robert Iger will
want his drones gussied
up like Mary Poppins.
It will be interesting to
watch The Washington
Post cover new owner
Bezos as he takes on the
FAA over drone regu-
lations. The agency is
drafting rules to let larger
commercial drones and
airlines share the sky,
with an eye toward
issuing licenses in 2015,
but a handful of states


would do everything
possible to make his
presidency a failure.
Efforts by the admin-
istration and Senate
Democrats to work with
GOP senators on a com-
promise health care bill
collapsed amid reports
Republican leaders
pressured GOP senators
not to help Obama.
That's why he had to rely
on Democratic congres-
sional majorities to pass
the bill or abandon an
initiative his party has
promised for years.
4. The calculated GOP
effort to sabotage the
law after its enactment.
Opposition to proposed
legislation on philosoph-
ical or political grounds
or promises of repeal
were neither new nor
improper. What was new
was how, in state after
state, Republican gov-
ernors and legislatures
-who once stressed
the importance of states'
rights and responsi-
bilities refused to
establish the exchanges
for implementing the
program. Instead, they

are passing restrictions of
their own.
Lobbying for private
unmanned drones,
Bezos will be aligned
with the Motion Picture
Association of America,
which is working to get
directors the right to use
drones for aerial shots.
It's a business taking
flight. Experts say there
may be as many as
30,000 unmanned private
and government drones
flying in this country by
2020, ratcheting drones
into a $90 billion industry,
generating 100,000 jobs. A
degree in drone manage-
ment can't be far off.
Politico writes that
the logistics of drone
delivery will be dizzying:
"It's easy enough to drop
a package on someone's
front steps, but what if
the person lives in a fifth-
floor apartment? Amazon
wants to launch the ser-
vice in large urban areas
- could a drone collide
with a skyscraper?"
Drones are less


dumped the responsibil-
ity for millions of their
citizens on Washington,
hoping it would prove
incapable of handling
so huge an undertak-
ing. These efforts are
continuing with various
court challenges to the
law.
5. The law's innate
complexity and the fact
that its initial benefits
helped a minority of
Americans meant most
people had little stake
in its early success. A
less partisan Congress
would have produced
a better bill. And when
subsequent problems
arose, the two parties
could have cooperated
to fix them.
As the program's ma-
chinery becomes more
effective, attention will
shift to the number of
enrollees, especially the
younger, healthier peo-
ple whose participation
is central to its success.
Unsurprisingly, a signifi-
cant proportion of initial
enrollees are elderly and
unhealthy, especially
those enrolling in the

restricted abroad. Irish
filmmaker Caroline
Campbell used one to
shoot film of Google
and Facebook offices in
Dublin, tellingWired,
"We feel that it is no
more intrusive than
something like Google
Street View."
Journalists, police and
paparazzi jumped on the
drone trend. One pho-
tographer dispatched a
drone over Tina Turner's
Lake Zurich estate
to snap shots of her
wedding last summer -
before police ordered it
grounded.
According to USA
Today on Tuesday,
all sorts of American
businesses are eluding
drone restrictions: real
estate representatives are
getting video of luxury
properties; photogra-
phers are collecting
footage of Hawaiian
surfers; Western farmers
are monitoring their
land; Sonoma vintners
are checking on how

expanded Medicaid
program. That's because
they're the ones who
have been unable to get
health coverage.
Unfortunately, the
administration has done
an even worse job im-
plementing the program
than initially selling it.
Though polls continue
to show more Americans
oppose than back it, a
recent CBS poll showed
more support for fixing
Obamacare than for
repealing it, and a CNN
poll showed a majority
thought its problems
would ultimately be
solved.
That, plus the fact
that Republicans won't
be able to repeal the
ACA until at least 2017,
should give Obama
enough time to salvage
the program and
perhaps his own stature
- in his last three years
as president.

their grapes are faring. As
Rem Rieder wryly noted
in that paper, Bezos may
eventually let his drones
help with home delivery
of The Washington Post,
"but it's bad news for
kids on bikes."
Law enforcement
agencies are eager to
get drones patrolling
the beat. And The Wrap
reported that in the
upcoming Sony remake
of "RoboCop," Samuel
L. Jackson's character, a
spokesman for a multi-
national conglomerate
that has to manufacture
a special RoboCop with
a conscience for America
(still traumatized by "The
Terminator," no doubt)
scolds Americans for
being "robophobic."
Of course, for the robo-
phobic, there is already a
way to get goods almost
immediately: Go to the

Insurance ends for disabled NPHS student


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER
NORTH PORT-
Although a recent fund-
raiser to help a disabled
North Port High School
student raised nearly
$1,465 and counting to
help his family get him
treatment at the Mayo
Clinic, the money might
be used for a more
immediate need.
Manny Galan's health
insurance ran out Nov. 30.
Manny, now 17,
was 14 and a healthy
eighth-grader when, on
Dec. 29, 2010, he col-
lapsed without warning.
Essentially dead for 15
minutes before EMTs
could resuscitate him, he
was on life support for
two weeks, the cause of
his cardiac arrest a blood
clot that reached his
heart. Lack of blood flow

both the city and the
county as a whole," City
Manager Howard Kunik
said. "Now the question
is, how to make it work?
The Charlotte Harbor
Aquarium group needs
to find a group to work
with them to make it a
reality."
In a two-page ad-
dendum to the report,
the Charlotte Harbor
Aquarium committee
wrote, "The committee
is not discrediting the
report based on the
assumptions that the
consultants made, but
felt it only presented one


resulted in an anoxic brain
injury that left him in a
persistent vegetative state.
Now Manny, although
he has no significant
measurable brain
activity and is confined
to a wheelchair, takes
four classes at NPHS
during half-days at
school. He has extra time
to complete work, and
tests are modified so he
can answer by raising his
right hand, the only part
of his body he can move,
thanks to medication.
But with insurance
gone, his schooling
might cease, as the nurse
who accompanies him
might not be available
for much longer.
His coverage lapsed,
according to his moth-
er Millie, for several
reasons.
"The guidelines have
changed with the new

possible scenario when
many of the variables
that would influence the
outcome of the report
could have been altered
in a sensitivity analysis."
The variables include:
Ticket prices -
In their analysis,
ConsultEcon priced
tickets at $15. CHA com-
mittee members believe
a fair and competitive
price should be $19 a
ticket, based on price
trends.
Attendance In
2012, Mote Aquarium's
attendance was
327,000, and the
Florida Aquarium's was
600,000, as examples.

Obamacare, and they say
we don't qualify because
of income," she said.
Millie explained that,
after being denied twice
for a conventional home
loan, a family friend
donated money on the
condition it be used only
for a down payment on
a house. Not thinking it
might impact the new
Medicaid application,
Millie put the money
into savings, and it was
counted among the
family assets, despite the
fact she tried to explain
the situation.
She was notified by
letter early in November
that his Medicaid appli-
cation was denied.
Since then, Millie
hasn't stopped. She has
requested hearings and
called Medicaid 11 times
in the last two weeks,
but hasn't gotten any

and another agency
estimated attendance to
be between 300,000 and
411,000.

believe some $849,000

ing staff with volunteers,

ahead with the project,

To support their
argument, they cite the
ethics commission's own
dismissal letter, which
acknowledges there
was no investigation


response. An attorney
working pro bono for
the family hasn't had
any luck either. Millie
has written to local
congressmen and even
the governor, but doesn't
know what else to do.
"I made that mistake
with the money I
take the responsibility,
even though it was an
innocent mistake," she
said, adding the family
found out the day before
Thanksgiving they were
approved for the house,
which they will close on
today.
"Once that money is
gone, I will be able to
reapply (for Medicaid),"
she said, adding she
applied for Florida Kid
Care, but was told it
could still take four to
six weeks to process the
application.
In addition to the


nurse, she still must pay
for his medications and
food for his feeding tube,
which is purchased from
a special company. She
has canceled any thera-
pies that aren't critical.
"His feeding and his
medication, I can't cut
off," she said. "This is a
kid who is 100 percent
disabled. If I don't have
a nurse, he can't go to
school. And if he doesn't
have a nurse, I can't go to
work. We're running into
$1,000-a-week debt just
to keep the nurse. I don't
have that kind of money."
While the nursing
company has been
accommodating, Millie
said she would hate to
use the fundraiser money
for care, but might have
to.
"I feel like I'm letting
him down, and every-
thing we've worked


WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"We were surprised by the recommended size. We
think it is too large for our market, but the firm gave
us great industry metrics to do sensitivity modeling on
alternatives, plus they gave us very good suggestions
on different paths to pursue. We will pursue those
and see where the journey takes us. Anyone with an
interest in joining us on that journey should let us
know."- David Dunn-Rankin, aquarium committee
co-chairman,
president and publisher of the Sun Coast Media Group
"On the positive side, the feasibility study report
did indicate that downtown Punta Gorda would be the
most attractive spot in the area. On the negative side,
the financial pro forma was not favorable under the
admission and attendance rates that were suggested.
The city would like to see development on that parcel,
so hopefully the committee can explore all of the
options that may exist. The challenge is finding a
vendor who is willing to take on the endeavor."-
Punta Gorda Mayor Rachel Keesling
"The really, really good news is that they decided
downtown Punta Gorda is a prime location, not


as part of a full feasibil-
ity analysis; to prepare
preliminary aquarium
concepts and capital cost
estimates; and to identify
fundraising potential.
"We have some infor-
mation now," Charlotte

preceding the review
and, therefore, "the com-
mission's conclusions do
not reflect on the accu-
racy of the allegations of
the complaint."
Herriman said the
ethics commission
does not allow lengthy
submissions detailing
alleged official miscon-
duct, thereby limiting
complainants from
making their case.
"So if a citizen cannot
send in supporting evi-
dence for the complaint,
and the ethics commis-
sion does not inves-
tigate the complaint,
then what purpose does
the ethics commission
really serve?" Herriman

just for an aquarium, but any other type of tourism
destination!'- Punta Gorda City Councilman Tom
Cavanaugh
*"An aquarium would help to attract people to
Charlotte County. It would also bring a lot of 'day-trip-
pers'in people from around the area who would
visit Punta Gorda and shop and eat there. One of the
competitive deficits we have (in Charlotte County) is
a lack of attractions for families basically a lack
of attractions in general."- Lorah Steiner, Charlotte
County tourism director
"It's great news that the process has selected the
site in Punta Gorda as the most viable location. Now
we have to go and sell it to Mote Marine or another
to show them that this is a good proposal so the
(committee) can get to work raising the money."-
John Wright, president of the Punta Gorda Chamber
of Commerce
"I'm in the process of reviewing the study. I'm
concerned with the substantial cost estimates, and
whether the community is capable of raising that
type of money."- Charlotte County Commissioner
Stephen R. Deutsch

Harbor Aquarium
committee co-chairman
Tom Kerr said. "We
felt that we needed to
expand the information
we got, which is why
we did the addendum,
and now our committee

wrote in an email.
Herriman's
complaint asserted
that because Constance,
a physician, has an
office in the heart of the
Parkside Community
Redevelopment Area, he
would benefit financially
from the rejuvenation of
Parkside.
In the other complaint,
Kesselring contended
Constance has financial
interest in two offices
at 2525 Harbor Blvd. He
further alleged that a
number of the commis-
sioner's campaign donors
have offices in the
Parkside CRA, allowing
them also to receive an
unfair advantage.


"ow US

and we're going to talk it
through and try to figure
out who we can attract to
come here and build out
the site."

Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.com

In separate rulings, the
ethics commission stated
there is no personal eco-
nomic benefit because
there are 799 businesses
and 4,186 residences lo-
cated within the Parkside
CRA.
In the response to
Kesselring, the com-
mission added: "There
also is no indication
that (Constance's) vote
specifically benefited his
business associates or
campaign donors."
The Florida
Commission on Ethics
is an independent,
nine-member board that
reviews complaints filed
under the statutory Code
of Ethics. All proceedings
and records relating to
the complaint are confi-
dential until the accused
requests the records
be made public or an
opinion is rendered.
The accusations
against Constance went
unreported for months
because he did not go
public with the com-
plaints and did not ask
the county to pay for his
legal defense, as Duffy
had done. The com-
plainants also protest
Duffy's plan to sue them
to recover legal expenses,
which are estimated at
less than $5,000.
Kesselring said this
week he had not heard
anything further about
Duffy's efforts to recoup
her legal fees, which
in the past he termed
intimidation tactics.
He maintains it is his
constitutional right to
redress a grievance of
public officials.

JOHANNESBURG Nelson
Mandela was a master of
forgiveness.
South Africa's first black
president spent nearly a third
of his life as a prisoner of
apartheid, yet he sought to win
over its defeated guardians in a
relatively peaceful transition of
power that inspired the world.
As head of state, the former
boxer, lawyer and inmate
lunched with the prosecutor
who argued successfully for


his incarceration. He sang the
apartheid-era Afrikaans anthem
at his inauguration and traveled
hundreds of miles to have tea
with the widow of the prime
minister in power at the time he
was sent to prison.
It was this generosity of spirit
that made Mandela, who died
Thursday at the age of 95, a
global symbol of sacrifice and
reconciliation in a world often
jarred by conflict and division.
Mandela's stature as a fighter
against apartheid the system
of white racist rule he called evil
- and a seeker of peace with
his enemies was on a par with

that of other men he admired:
American civil rights activist
Martin Luther King Jr. and
Indian independence leader
Mohandas K. Gandhi, both
of whom were assassinated
while actively engaged in their
callings.
Mandela's death deprived the
world of one of the great figures
of modern history and set the
stage for days of mourning and
reflection about a colossus of
the 20th century who projected
astonishing grace, resolve and
good humor.
Dressed in black, South
African President Jacob Zuma


made the announcement on
television. He said Mandela
died "peacefully" surrounded
by family, at around 8:50 p.m.
"We've lost our greatest son.
Our nation has lost its greatest
son. Our people have lost a
father," Zuma said. 'Although
we knew that this day would
come, nothing can diminish
our sense of a profound and
enduring loss."
At times, Mandela embraced
his iconic status, appearing
before a rapturous crowd in
London's Wembley Stadium

US economy shows signs of growth


ByJOSH BOAK
AP ECONOMICS WRITER
WASHINGTON -The U.S.
economy is growing faster,
corporate profits are rising
and companies are laying off
the fewest workers in six years.
The latest government
reports point to economic


momentum in the midst of
the critical holiday shopping
season.
"The momentum looks
strong," said Chris Rupkey,
chief economist at the Bank of
Tokyo-Mitsubishi.
Encouraging as the latest
figures are, hopes for a robust
finish to 2013 hinge on strong


hiring. And that depends,
in part, on what the govern-
ment's November jobs report
shows when it is released on
Friday.
The recovery from the
Great Recession that ended
4 1/2 years ago has come in fits
and starts. Unemployment
remains high at 7.3 percent.


And growth has yet to reach
the acceleration that defined
U.S. economic recoveries for
much of the past half century.
Even Thursday's govern-
ment report that the economy
grew at a robust annual rate of
3.6 percent from July through

Fast-food protests return


NEWYORK (AP) -
Fast-food workers and
labor organizers marched,
waved signs and chanted
in cities across the coun-
try on Thursday in a push
for higher wages.
Organizers say employ-
ees planned to forgo work
in 100 cities, with rallies
set for another 100 cities.
But by late afternoon,
it was unclear what the
actual turnout was or how
many of the participants
were workers. At targeted
restaurants, the disrup-
tions seemed minimal or
temporary.
The protests are part of
an effort that began about
a year ago and is spear-
headed by the Service
Employees International
Union, which has spent
millions to bankroll
local worker groups


and organize publicity
for the demonstrations.
Protesters are calling for
pay of $15 an hour, but
the figure is seen more
as a rallying point than a
near-term possibility.
At a time when there's
growing national and
international attention
on economic disparities,
advocacy groups and
Democrats are hoping to
build public support to
raise the federal mini-
mum wage of $7.25. That
comes to about $15,000 a
year for full-time work
On Thursday, crowds
gathered outside restau-
rants in cities including
Boston, Lakewood, Calif.,
Phoenix, Washington,
D.C., and Charlotte, N.C.,
where protesters walked
into a Burger King but
didn't stop customers


Report: Fed site gi


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP)
- People shopping for
insurance on the federal
marketplace maybe
informed they're eligible
for Medicaid and that
their information is being
sent to state officials to
sign them up. However,
states aren't able enroll
them because they're
not receiving usable
data from the Obama
administration.
The Center for
Medicare and Medicaid


Services wrote a memo
to the 36 states using
the federal website last
week acknowledging the
information wasn't being
transferred automatically
and saying another sys-
tem was being developed
to send it. More complete
files could be sent as
soon as next week.
The problem with
Medicaid coordination
could affect tens of
thousands of applicants
and represents the


from getting their food.
In Detroit, about 50
demonstrators turned
out for a pre-dawn rally
in front of a McDonald's.
A few employees said
they weren't working
but a manager and
other employees kept the
restaurant open.
Julius Waters, a
29-year-old McDonald's
maintenance worker who
was among the protesters,
said it's hard making ends
meet on his wage of $7.40
an hour.
"I need a better wage
for myself, because, right
now, I'm relying on aid,
and $7.40 is not able to
help me maintain taking
care of my son. I'm a sin-
gle parent," Waters said.
In New York City, about
100 protesters blew
whistles and beat drums


while marching into a
McDonald's at around
6:30 a.m.; one startled
customer grabbed his
food and fled as they
flooded the restaurant,
while another didn't
look up from eating and
reading amid their chants
of "We can't survive on
$7.25!"
Community leaders
took turns giving speech-
es for about 15 minutes
until police arrived and
ordered protesters out
of the store. The crowd
continued to demon-
strate outside for about
45 minutes.
Later in the day, about
50 protesters rallied
outside aWendy's in
Brooklyn. Channon
Wetstone, a 44-year-old
attorney ended up going
to a nearby Burger King


because of the protests.
She said that fast-food
employees work very
hard. When asked if she'd
be willing to pay more for
food so they could earn
more, she said it would
depend on what she was
ordering.
"I would say 50 cents,
75 cents more," Wetstone
said.
The push for higher
pay in fast food faces an
uphill battle. The industry
competes aggressively
on being able to offer
low-cost meals and
companies have warned
that they would need to
raise prices if wages were
hiked.
Fast-food workers have
also historically been seen
as difficult to unionize,
given the industry's high
turnover rates.


ves unusable Medicaid data


latest issue to arise in the
rollout of a website that's
been plagued with long
waits for users and other
glitches.
Some users who fill out
applications on the fed-
eral site may believe that
they're already being en-
rolled in Medicaid or that
state officials will contact
them, even though the
agencies aren't receiving
the information they
need, said Matt Salo,
executive director of the
National Association of
Medicaid Directors. The
data transfer problem is
occurring in the 36 states
where the federal site is
deployed, regardless of
whether they chose to
expand Medicaid.
"Essentially, if you're a
consumer on healthcare.
gov, it will tell you you're
eligible for Medicaid
and the state agency
will take care of it, but
there's no real way for
the state Medicaid
agency to know anything
about it," said Salo, who
leads the nonpartisan


membership group for
state Medicaid chiefs.
The federal market-
place was designed
to help people buy
private insurance
under President Barack
Obama's health overhaul.
If shoppers qualified for
Medicaid, the site was
supposed to send their
data to the Medicaid
agency in their state.
As explained on
healthcare.gov, "When
you finish this applica-
tion, we'll tell you which
programs you and your
family qualify for. If it
looks like anyone is eli-
gible for Medicaid, we'll
let the Medicaid agency
know so your coverage
can start in 2014."
The site also says:
"If you or a member of
your family qualify for
Medicaid or CHIP, a rep-
resentative will contact
you to enroll." CHIP is a
health insurance pro-
gram for children.
The federal Center for
Medicare and Medicaid
Services has devised


an alternative way of
sending files including
the patient information
to the states.
"CMS announced that
we will be providing
states with additional
flexibility to use existing
processes to enroll
individuals in Medicaid
and CHIP who applied
through the federal mar-
ketplace. This process
will ensure that coverage
will begin on Jan. 1 for
newly eligible enrollees,"
said spokeswoman
Emma Sandoe.
Salo said the federal
government is currently
sending states incom-
plete data files on people
deemed eligible online
- data called "flat files"
- so that agencies can
get a rough estimate of
how many people they
may need to enroll.
New files with more
information could be
sent as soon as Tuesday,
Salo said. But states are
unsure the new files will
be complete or accurate
enough for enrollments.

A New Year's deadline that

Obama to feds:
Boost renewable
power 20 percent
WASHINGTON (AP)-
Saying the government
should lead by example,
President Barack Obama
on Thursday ordered the
federal government to
nearly triple its use of
renewable sources for
electricity by 2020.
Obama said the plan
to use renewables for
20 percent of electricity
needs will help reduce
pollution that causes
global warming, pro-
mote American energy
independence and boost
domestic energy sources
such as solar and wind
power that provide
thousands of jobs.
The order is part of the
president's wide-rang-
ing, second-term drive
to combat climate
change and prepare for
its effects. A plan an-
nounced in June would
put first-time limits on
carbon pollution from
new and existing power
plants, boost renewable
energy production on
federal lands and prepare
communities to deal with
higher temperatures.
The directive on renew-
able energy applies to all
federal agencies, civilian
and military.
Federal agencies have
reduced their greenhouse
gas emissions by more
than 15 percent since
he took office in 2009,
Obama said, but the
government can do even
better.

Auction: Springsteen
manuscript sells
for $197,000
NEWYORK (AP) -
Tramps like us, baby we
were born to bid.
A handwritten, working
lyric sheet for Bruce
Springsteen's 1975 hit
"Born to Run" sold for
$197,000 on Thursday at
Sotheby's.
The document used
to be in the collection
of Springsteen's former
manager, Mike Appel,
according to Sotheby's. It
did not reveal the identity
of either the seller or the
buyer, a person bidding
by telephone.
Most of the lines in this
rough 1974 version, writ-
ten in Long Branch, N.J.,
are apparently unpub-
lished and unrecorded,
but the manuscript does
include "a nearly perfect-
ed chorus," the auction
house said.

Bear suspected
in attack
is euthanized
LONGWOOD(AP)- A
bear that matched the
description of one that
injured a Florida woman
who was walking her dogs
has been captured and
euthanized.
Florida wildlife officials
say the 200-pound bear
was captured Wednesday
night in the same
Longwood neighborhood
in suburban Orlando
where the 54-year-old
woman was hurt.
Officials with the
Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission decided on
euthanasia because the
bear was captured within
48 hours of the attack in
the same location.
After Susan Chalfant
was injured Monday
evening, wildlife officers
set up traps in the neigh-
borhood where the attack
took place.
One of the traps
captured a yearling
bear that didn't fit the
description of the bear in
the attack. That yearling
is now being housed at a
rehabilitation center in
Crystal River.

Amur leopards
born at
Jacksonville zoo
JACKSONVILLE (AP) -
The Jacksonville Zoo and
Gardens is welcoming two
endangered Amur leopard
cubs.
The two females were
born Nov. 16 and given
their first checkup by zoo
staff on Tuesday. They
were each 4 pounds.
Zoo officials say this
is the third litter for the
parents, Makarii and
Nicolai, since they arrived
at the zoo in 2006. Makarii
gave birth to one cub in
2011 and two in 2012.
The Florida Times-
Union reports that Amur
leopards are native to
southeast Russia and
northeast China. Experts
believe fewer than 50
remain in the wild, and
about 95 live in captivity
in the United States.

night when the noise
awakened him. When he
saw someone enter his
bedroom, he grabbed a
gun he keeps next to his

The shot hit Erik Kirby,
who is one of several

Kirby was taken to
a hospital in stable

Tampa evicting
boats in
seaplane basin
TAMPA (AP) -The
city of Tampa is evicting
about 80 boats from the
Davis Islands Seaplane
Basin, where some
have been tied to illegal
moorings for years.
The Tampa Tribune
reports the action
follows a request by the
Hillsborough County
Aviation Authority to clear
35 boats blocking the
airport's seaplane corri-
dor. The remaining boats
are being cleared out
until the city can create a
mooring field similar to
the one on the waterfront
in St. Petersburg.
"We can't even begin
the process until the
basin is cleared," said
Laura McElroy, spokes-
woman for Tampa Police
Department.
The department's
marine division issued
45 warnings Monday.
Another 35 received
similar warnings on
Nov. 22. The warnings
give boat owners 30 days
to find new homes for
their vessels.
The Tribune reports
the boats are registered
to owners from Venice to
Painted Post, N.Y. Police
couldn't find the owners
of eight boats.

Deputies: Woman
injected drugs in
jail restroom
LAND 0' LAKES (AP) -
Authorities say a woman
was caught injecting
cocaine in a public
restroom at the Pasco
County Jail.
Pasco County Sheriff's
officials say 33-year-old
Stacy Renee Slabach
was at the jail Tuesday
to retrieve prescription
drugs that had been left
in her car when it was
impounded after she
was caught driving with
a revoked license last
month. The prescription
drugs and the car belong
to Slabach's mother.
Slabach went to the
restroom and after a few
minutes, an employee
went to check on her.
The Tampa Tribune
reports deputies found
Slabach passed out. They
also found a syringe
contaminated with blood,
a crack pipe, a small
amount of cocaine and
less than 20 grams of
marijuana.
She was arrested and
remains jailed in lieu of
$5,450 bail.

Dead dolphins
wash up on
Florida beaches
WILBUR-BY-THE-SEA
(AP) Dead bottlenose
dolphins are continuing
to wash up on beaches
along Florida's east coast.
Since Sunday, offi-

up three dead dolphins
along Flagler County
beaches.
Capt. Tammy Marris
of Volusia Beach Safety
and Ocean Rescue says a
3-foot dolphin was found
in Wilbur-by-the-Sea on
Monday. The Daytona
Beach News-Journal
reports that in November
at least seven dolphins

County beaches and
another four on beaches
in nearby Flagler County.
Scientists with the

morbillivirus is likely
causing the deaths. A

Officials: 35 pilot whales



moving in deeper water


EVERGLADES
NATIONAL PARK (AP) -
Pods of 35 pilot whales
slowly swam Thursday
into deeper water off
Florida's southwest coast,
raising optimism that the
strandings of whales on
Everglades National Park
beaches may soon end on
a positive note.
National Oceanic
and Atmospheric
Administration fisheries
official Blair Mase said
midaftemoon Thursday
that the three whale pods
were nine miles north of


their original location and
continuing to move off-
shore. They were in 18 feet
of water about six miles
offshore, still several miles
from the 900-to-1,000 foot
depths they usually call
home, Mase said.
"They are in deeper
water, and they are getting
closer to their normal
home range," Mase said.
"Even though we are hope-
ful, this situation could
go either way. There is a
chance they could come
back inshore again."
Mase said the total


of dead whales has
reached 11, with five still
unaccounted for. She said
wildlife workers were sur-
prised Thursday morning
to discover that most of
the live whales had moved
out of the shallows on their
own sometime during the
night. By early evening
Thursday, most crews had
left the scene, but a Coast
Guard cutter was to remain
stationed with the whales
overnight Thursday.
About 15 vessels carrying
about 35 personnel were
involved in the effort to


track the whales, which
were first spotted Tuesday
in extremely shallow water
in the Everglades park
south of Naples.
Wildlife workers had
planned to try using noises
such as banging on pipes
and revving boat engines
to herd the whales out to
the open ocean. But that
turned out to be unnec-
essary, and the workers
simply used positioning of
the boats to prevent any
of the whales from turning
away from the open sea,
Mase said.

Bondi said voters will be
misled into approving
widespread use of medical
marijuana and urged
the court not to allow
the proposal on the 2014
ballot, while a lawyer for
proponents said voters
will clearly know they are
allowing doctors to use
their expertise on whether
to prescribe the drug for
debilitating conditions.
The court will not rule


on whether it approves of
medical marijuana, but
rather whether the 74-
word ballot summary is
misleading or not. Citizen
initiatives are limited to 75
words when summing up
a proposed constitutional
amendment a condi-
tion that Justice Barbara
Pariente said makes
it difficult for people
circulating petitions to put
an issue on the ballot.
Allen Winsor, Bondi's
solicitor general, told the
court that voters would
read the summary and
think they were voting
on whether to allow
medical marijuana for
people with debilitating
diseases only, but the
actual amendment allows


doctors to also prescribe it
for debilitating conditions,
which could be chronic
pain.
"You don't even have
to have a disease to get
marijuana," Winsor said.
While the summary
states medical marijuana
could be prescribed by
doctors for patients with
debilitating diseases, the
title of the ballot question
is "Use of Marijuana
for Certain Medical
Conditions." Former
House Speaker Jon Mills
said that read together,
voters would know that
the amendment would be
applied to diseases and
medical conditions.
John Morgan of the
personal injury law firm


Morgan & Morgan has
spent more than $1 mil-
lion on the petition drive.
Supporters need to gather
683,149 voter signatures
by Feb. 1. So far 136,458
signatures have been
certified. Morgan said
about 400,000 petitions
have been collected.
A Quinnipiac University
poll last month showed
that 82 percent of voters
approve of medical
marijuana.
After the arguments,
Morgan expressed
confidence that the ballot
summary will be ap-
proved. And if it isn't or
if the petition drive fails
- he said the issue will be
brought up again during
the 2016 election.

Mandela, anti-apartheid icon, mourned world over


In nearly seven decades
spent fighting for freedom
and equality, Nelson
Mandela inspired and
challenged the world to
stand up for others. As
word of Mandela's death
spread Thursday, current
and former presidents, ath-
letes and entertainers, and
people around the world
spoke out about the life
and legacy of the former
South African leader.

soon after his 1990 release
from prison. Sometimes,
he sought to downplay it,
uneasy about the perils of
being put on a pedestal. In
an unpublished manu-
script, written while in
prison, Mandela acknowl-
edged that leaders of the
anti-apartheid movement
dominated the spotlight
but said they were "only
part of the story," and
every activist was "like a
brick which makes up our
organization."
He pondered the cost to
his family of his dedication
to the fight against the
racist system of govern-
ment that jailed him for
27 years and refused him
permission to attend the
funeral of his mother and
of a son who was killed in
a car crash. In court, he
described himself as "the
loneliest man" during his
mid-1990s divorce from
Winnie Mandela.
He secured near-myth-
ical status in his country
and beyond. Last year,
the South African central
bank released new bank
notes showing his face, a
robust, smiling image of a
man who was meticulous
about his appearance and
routinely exercised while
in prison. South Africa
erected statues of him
and named buildings and
other places after him.
He shared the 1993 Nobel
Peace Prize with EW de
Klerk, the country's last
white president. He was
the subject of books, films
and songs and a magnet
for celebrities.
In 2010, Mandela waved
to the crowd at the Soccer
City stadium at the closing
ceremony of the World Cup,
whose staging in South
Africa allowed the country,
and the continent, to shine
internationally. It was the
last public appearance
for the former president
and prisoner, who smiled
broadly and was bundled
up against the cold.
One of the most
memorable of his gestures
toward racial harmony was
the day in 1995 when he
strode onto the field before
the RugbyWorld Cup final
in Johannesburg, and then

the distinction of being
his nation's first black

'As we remember his
triumphs, let us, in his
memory, not just reflect
on how far we've come,
but on how far we have
to go," said the U.S. actor
Morgan Freeman, who
portrayed Mandela in the

again after the game, when
he congratulated the home
team for its victory over a
tough New Zealand team.
Mandela was wearing
South African colors and
the overwhelmingly white
crowd of 63,000 was on
its feet, chanting "Nelson!
Nelson! Nelson!"
It was a moment half a
century in the making.

Early life
Nelson Rolihlahla
Mandela was born on
July 18, 1918, the son of
a tribal chief in Transkei,
a Xhosa homeland that
later became one of the
"Bantustans" set up as
independent republics by
the apartheid regime to
cement the separation of
whites and blacks.
Mandela's royal up-
bringing gave him a regal
bearing that became his
hallmark. Many South
Africans of all races would
later call him by his clan
name, Madiba, as a token
of affection and respect.
Growing up at a time
when virtually all of Africa
was under European
colonial rule, Mandela at-
tended Methodist schools
before being admitted to
the black University of
Fort Hare in 1938. He was
expelled two years later for
his role in a student strike.
He moved to
Johannesburg and worked
as a policeman at a
gold mine, boxed as an
amateur heavyweight and
studied law.

Anti-apartheid
movement
Mandela began his rise
through the anti-apart-
heid movement in 1944,
when he helped form the
ANC Youth League.
He organized a cam-
paign in 1952 to encourage
defiance of laws that seg-
regated schools, marriage,
housing and job oppor-
tunities. The government
retaliated by barring him
from attending gatherings
and leaving Johannesburg,
the first of many "banning"
orders he was to endure.
After a two-day nation-
wide strike was crushed
by police, he and a small
group of ANC colleagues
decided on military action

holiday season, stockpil-
ing is likely to slow.
Most economists
foresee a sharp slow-
down in growth during
the October-December
quarter as businesses
do less stockpiling. Early
estimates for economic
growth are at or below an
annual rate of 1.5 percent.
Paul Ashworth,
chief U.S. economist
at Capital Economics,
cautioned that a drop in

New Zealand, China and
Texas. He joked he wants
his photograph "in every
home in the world."
"This is my reason to
continue to keep going,"
he says. "Otherwise,
it's time for me to say
goodbye."
Weatherwax was a
24-year-old Army private


living in Honolulu when
he heard loud explosions
the morning of Dec. 7,
1941. He saw the sky fill
with black smoke and
heard anti-aircraft guns
firing. When he turned

"He proved that there
is freedom in forgiving,
that a big heart is better
than a closed mind, and
that life's real victo-
ries must be shared,"
President Bill Clinton
said in a statement.

New York City Mayor
Michael R. Bloomberg
remembered how

immediate aftermath of


and Mandela pushed to
form the movement's
guerrilla wing, Umkhonto
we Sizwe, or Spear of the
Nation.
He was arrested in
1962 and sentenced to
five years' hard labor for
leaving the country ille-
gally and inciting blacks
to strike.
A year later, police un-
covered the ANC's under-
ground headquarters on
a farm near Johannesburg
and seized documents out-
lining plans for a guerrilla
campaign. At a time when
African colonies were one
by one becoming indepen-
dent states, Mandela and
seven co-defendants were
sentenced to life in prison.
He was confined to the
harsh Robben Island prison
near Cape Town for most
of his time behind bars,
then moved to jails on the
mainland. It was forbidden
to quote him or publish
his photo, yet he and
other jailed members of his
banned African National
Congress were able to
smuggle out messages of
guidance to the anti-apart-
heid movement, and
in the final stages of his
confinement, he negotiated
secretly with the apartheid
leaders who recognized
change was inevitable.
Mandela turned
down conditional offers
of freedom during his
decades in prison. In 1989,
P.W Botha, South Africa's
hard-line president, was

nal a weakening economy.
Ashworth noted that the
report on third-quarter
growth showed that
business sales surged,
corporate profits rose, in-
come grew and Americans
saved more.
The report adds "to the
evidence that the recov-
ery is gaining momen-
tum," Ashworth said.
To sustain that
strength, the economy
needs more jobs. On

on the radio, he learned
Japan was bombing Oahu
and all military personnel
were to immediately
report to their stations.
He saw the USS
Arizona enveloped in
flames and the USS
Oklahoma turned on its
side as he headed to his
post. Twenty-one ships
were sunk or heavily
damaged that day while
320 aircraft were dam-
aged or destroyed. Some
2,400 sailors, Marines
and soldiers were killed.
Pam Johnson, a


the 9/11 terror attacks,
gave the city strength
and hope.
"He devoted his life
to building a more just,
equal and compassion-
ate world, and we are all
better for it," Bloomberg
said.

At the Muhammad Ali
Center in Louisville, Ky.,
on display is a photo-
graph of the U.S. boxing
great with Mandela, their
hands clenched into fists


replaced by de Klerk, who
recognized apartheid's
end was near. Mandela
continued, even in his
last weeks in prison, to
advocate nationalizing
banks, mines and monop-
oly industries a stance
that frightened the white
business community.
Thousands died, or
were tortured or impris-
oned in the decades-long
struggle against apartheid,
which deprived the black
majority of the vote, the
right to choose where to
live and travel, and other
basic freedoms.
So when inmate
No. 46664 went free after
27 years, walking hand-in-
hand with his then wife,
Winnie, out of a prison on
the South African main-
land, people worldwide
rejoiced.

Elected president
South Africa's white
rulers had portrayed him
as the spearhead of a
communist revolution and
insisted that black majority
rule would usher in bloody
chaos. Thousands died in
factional fighting in the
run-up to democratic elec-
tions in 1994, and Mandela
accused the government of
collusion in the bloodshed.
But voting day, when long
lines of voters waited
patiently to cast ballots,
passed peacefully, as did
Mandela's inauguration as
president.

Friday, the government
will show whether steady
gains in hiring over the
past few months contin-
ued in November.
"It's the one number
that can come out and be
180 degrees in the oppo-
site direction of what you
thought," Rupkey said.
The economy has
added a solid average
of 202,000 jobs a month
from August through
October. And the number

She had been struggling
to get the 12-year-olds

Weatherwax, several stu-
dents suddenly told her
they wanted to look up

ignited in them a desire
to learn, she said.

early 1990s, 21 survivors

"He made us realize,
we are our brother's
keeper and that our
brothers come in all
colors," Ali said in a
statement. "What I will
remember most about
Mr. Mandela is that he
was a man whose heart,
soul and spirit could
not be contained or
restrained by racial and
economic injustices,
metal bars or the burden
of hate and revenge."

Perceived successes
during Mandela's tenure
include the introduction
of a constitution with
robust protections for
individual rights, and the
Truth and Reconciliation
Commission, which he
established with fellow
Nobel laureate Archbishop
Desmond Tutu. It allowed
human rights offenders
of all races to admit their
crimes publicly in return
for lenient treatment.
Though not regarded
as wholly successful, it
proved to be a kind of na-
tional therapy that would
become a model for other
countries emerging from
prolonged strife.
After his presidency,
with apartheid van-
quished, Mandela turned
to peacemaking efforts in
other parts of Africa and
the world, and eventually
to fighting AIDS.
Mandela's final years
were marked by frequent
hospitalizations as he
struggled with respira-
tory problems that had
bothered him since he
contracted tuberculosis in
prison.
He stayed in his rural
home in Qunu in Eastern
Cape province, where
Hillary Clinton, then U.S.
secretary of state, visited
him in 2012, but then
moved fulltime to his
home in Johannesburg
so he could be close to
medical care in Pretoria,
the capital.

unemployment benefits
has fallen over the past
month back to mid-2007
levels. That signals fewer
layoffs and further job
gains in November.
Job growth has a
dominant influence over
much of the economy. If
hiring continues at the
current pace, a virtuous
cycle starts to build.
More jobs usually lead
to higher wages, more
spending, and faster
growth.

enlarges or enhances the

Martinez says. It can give

nection to meet someone
who was on-site when

Their numbers are
dwindling, however.
"It's a fading fraternity.
Right before my eyes
we're seeing them disap-
pear," Martinez says.

Assault on
Yemen's Defense
Ministry kills 52
ADEN, Yemen (AP)-
The Defense Ministry came
under attack Thursday
from a suicide car bomber
and heavily armed gun-
men, killing 52 people
and wounding 167 in a
fierce battle in the heart of
Yemen's capital of Sanaa,
the government said.
Among the dead at the
Defense Ministry com-
plex, which also houses
a military hospital, were
soldiers and civilians,
including seven foreign-
ers- two Germans, two
Vietnamese, two Filipinos
and one Indian, according
to the Supreme Security
Commission.
Nobody immediately
claimed responsibility for
the two-stage assault, but
suicide bombings and
complex attacks are the
hallmarks of al-Qaida.
The brazen morning at-
tack, the deadliest in Sanaa
since May 2012, underlined
the ability of insurgents to
strike at the government as
they exploit the instability
that has plagued this key
U.S. ally for more than two
years. Defense Minister
Mohammed Nasser
Ahmed was in Washington
for talks Thursday, and
the U.S. State Department
condemned the "senseless
killing and wounding of
dozens."

Algerians sent home
from Guantanamo
against will
MIAMI (AP) -Two men
who had been held without
charge at the Guantanamo
Bay for more than a decade
have been sent back to
their native Algeria against
their will as part of a
renewed effort to gradually
close the prison, officials
said Thursday.
Both prisoners, Djamel
Saiid Ali Ameziane and
Belkecem Bensayah, had
resisted being returned
to Algeria because of
fears they might face
persecution and further
imprisonment, according
to their U.S. lawyers, who
had urged President Barack
Obama's administration to
send them elsewhere.
Both the 46-year-old
Ameziane, who was
captured in Pakistan, and
Bensayah, a 51-year-old
captured in Bosnia, fled
Algeria during the coun-
try's civil war in the 1990s.
They had been held at
Guantanamo since 2002 on
suspicion of having links to
terrorism but neither was
charged by the U.S.

Kerry seeks to
soothe Israeli
security concerns
JERUSALEM (AP)-
Looking to soothe irritated
relations with Israel,
America's top diplomat
on Thursday pledged to
support the Jewish state's
security throughout
separate negotiations with
Iran and the Palestinians -
including Israel's demand
that it "defend itself, by
itself."
U.S. Secretary of State
John Kerry's comments
served as a sort of peace
offering to Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu, who
has made no secret of his
displeasure with a tentative
offer by world powers to
ease some sanctions on
Iran in exchange for curbing
Tehran's nuclear program.
In remarks to report-
ers after meeting with
Netanyahu in Jerusalem,
Kerry repeatedly affirmed
Israel's security as a top
U.S. priority. He said he and
retired Marine Gen. John


Allen offered suggestions
on how Israel can bolster its
security as the result of its
ongoing peace negotiations
with Palestinians.
Kerry did not offer any
specifics, and Netanyahu
separately told reporters
that the process was not
helped by discussing its
details with the media.


Clashes sweep CAR capital ahead of French troops


BANGUI, Central
African Republic (AP) -
Armed Christian fighters
who support the coun-
try's exiled president
assaulted the capital at
dawn on Thursday with
rifles and machetes,
leaving nearly 100
people dead. Shrouded
bodies were lined up in
a mosque as dozens of
wounded lay on blood-
stained hospital floors.
The ambush on
Muslim neighborhoods
of Bangui came as the
United Nations voted
to send a contingent of
French troops to try to
stabilize the country,
and French President
Francois Hollande
announced plans to
double the force. The
daylong gunbattle
touched even the most


protected parts of the
capital, including the
residence of the prime
minister, underscoring
the volatile mix of arms
and ideology facing the
arriving French force.
Scores died in
Thursday's attack, in-
cluding 48 people whose
bodies were laid out at
a mosque in a northern
suburb of Bangui.
Separately, a Doctors
Without Borders spokes-
woman, Amelie Ketoff,
said another 50 deaths
had been confirmed,
bringing the toll to 98.
Some died of bullet
wounds, others from
what appeared to be
machete blows using
a weapon known in
the local language as a
"balaka." The Christian
militia, whose members


are believed to have led
the attack Thursday, call
themselves the "anti-bal-
aka," reminiscent of the
horrific violence once
seen in Rwanda.
Rebel leader-
turned-president Michel
Djotodia appealed
for calm, even as his
residence was looted
and vandalized by the
fighters. He announced a
dusk-to-dawn curfew in
a bid to stem the threat
of retaliatory violence
against Christians, fol-
lowing the early morn-
ing attack on Muslim
neighborhoods.
"This morning the en-
emies of Central African
Republic wanted to
destabilize the country
but they have failed,"
Djotodia announced in a
speech broadcast in the


Sango language on state
radio.
France already has
hundreds of soldiers in
Bangui, and an armored
personnel carrier and
other military vehicles
patrolled the streets. The
roads were otherwise
bare except for the
brightly painted pickup
trucks driven by the
ex-rebels who run the
government.
The resolution passed
by the U.N. Security
Council on Thursday
allows France to send
hundreds more troops
for a temporary period.
Speaking from the
Elysee Palace in Paris,
Hollande said the
600 troops already in
the country would be
doubled "within a few
days, even a few hours"


to around 1,200.
The U.N. measure
also authorizes the
deployment of an
African Union-led
force to Central African
Republic for a year to
protect civilians and
restore public order. The
AU force is replacing a
regional peacekeeping
mission whose presence
has been mainly limited
to the capital and a few
northern cities.
"It's necessary to
intervene very quickly
to establish order in
this country, in order
that humanitarian aid
arrives and to avoid an
actual civil war based on
religion," said France's
U.N. ambassador,
Gerard Araud, speaking
on French RTL radio
Thursday.


PARIS (AP) France
has long served as
Africa's policeman,
sending troops in
regularly- and often
meddling behind the
scenes to keep the
peace and secure its
interests on a continent
where it was once a
major colonial power. In
more recent years, as it
comes to terms with that
colonial past, France has
tried to forge a different,
more equal relationship,
focusing on trade.
But it remains a dom-
inant military force for
Africa, training African

to calls from African
leaders themselves to

The U.N. authorized


an intervention force
Thursday to prevent a
bloodbath in Central
African Republic, where
anarchy is threatening
to descend into geno-
cide. France has said it
is ready to double the
number of troops it has
there.
Here are some recent
examples of France's
intervention in African
conflict:

For several years,
France has provided sup-

January. France had as
many as 4,000 troops
in the country at the
height of the operation,
which pushed the
Islamists back and then
rooted them out of their
strongholds throughout
Mali's north. While the
main fighting is over,
France still has around
2,800 troops in Mali -
but is gradually reducing
the deployment. The
commitment has lasted
much longer than orig-
inally expected, though
France is supposed to
hand over security to
African troops under a
U.N. mandate.

Libya
As Arab Spring


uprisings swept the
Middle East, Libyans
started to protest the
decades-long rule of
Moammar Gadhafi.
When his forces
clamped down brutally
on civilians, France,
along with Britain,
pushed for an interna-
tional response. With a
resolution authorizing
force, French along with
other NATO troops con-
ducted bombing raids
and enforced a no-fly
zone that helped rebels
defeat Gadhafi and
establish a government.
Continued violence and
disorder, however, have
led some to wonder if
the medicine of Western
intervention is worse
than the disease.

BUSINESS NEWS/STOCKS


The Sun /Friday, December 6,2013


NEWYORK (AP) -The
outlook for hiring is im-
proving and the economy
is growing at its fastest
pace in more than a year,
so what's the bad news
for the stock market?
Investors believe the
encouraging signs on the
economy will push the
Federal Reserve closer to
pulling back on its $85 bil-
lion-a-month bond-buying
program. That stimulus,


which is intended to hold
down interest rates, has
been helping to power this
year's record-setting run in
the stock market.
The S&P 500 index fell
7.78 points, or 0.4 per-
cent, to 1,785.03. The
Dow Jones industrial av-
erage fell 68.26 points, or
0.4 percent, to 15,821.51.
The Nasdaq composite
declined 4.84 points, or
0.1 percent, at 4,033.16.


Gold declines third time in four days


Stocks fall on




Wall Street


(Bloomberg) Gold
futures declined
Thursday for the third
time in four days as
U.S. economic data
reinforced concern that
the Federal Reserve will
begin trimming stimu-
lus measures, curbing
demand for precious
metals as a haven.
The U.S. expanded at
3.6 percent rate in the
third quarter, up from
an initial estimate of
2.8 percent, while jobless
claims unexpectedly
declined to the lowest


level in more than two
months as of Nov. 30,
separate government
reports showed today.
Gold pared losses
after the dollar declined,
increasing demand for
the precious metal as an
alternative investment.
"The U.S. is on the
right track, and tapering
is clearly becoming a
possibility," Phil Streible,
a senior commodity
broker at R.J. O'Brien
& Associates, said in a
telephone interview from
Chicago. "The dollar


dropping is probably the
only thing working for
gold today."
Gold futures for
February delivery slid
1.2 percent to settle at
$1,231.90 an ounce at
1:41 p.m. on the Comex in
NewYork. Earlier, prices
fell as much as 2.5 percent.
The dollar declined
as much as 0.6 percent
against the euro after the
European Central Bank
President Mario Draghi
refrained from introduc-
ing further monetary
stimulus.

Fed policymakers sig-
naled last month that the
labor market will prob-
ably improve enough to
warrant slowing their
$85 billion of monthly
bond purchases. Bullion
rose 70 percent from
December 2008 to
June 2011 as the central
bank pumped more
than $2 trillion into the
financial system. The Fed
next meets Dec. 17-18.
Gold has tumbled
26 percent this year,
heading for the first
annual drop in 13 years.

American teacher shot dead in Libya's Benghazi


TRIPOLI, Libya (AP)-
An American teacher was
shot to death as he was
jogging in Benghazi on
Thursday, highlighting per-
sistently tenuous security
in the eastern Libyan city
where the U.S. ambassador


was killed last year.
There were no credible
claims of responsibility,
but suspicion is likely to
fall on Islamic militants
active in Benghazi. It
came five days after
al-Qaida's American


at theCharlotte County

Barack Obama had been
briefed on the situation.
The U.S. State
Department identified the
teacher as Ronald Thomas
Smith II. The State
Department did not pro-
vide Smith's hometown,
and it was not possible to
immediately confirm a
statement from a Libyan
official that he was from
Texas. The University of


Texas in Austin said he
graduated from the school
in 2006 with a master's
degree in chemistry.
Smith taught chemistry
at Benghazi's International
School, a Libyan-owned
institute that follows a
British curriculum.
The school posted con-
dolences on its Facebook
page. "He was a much
loved teacher who support-
ed students in their learn-
ing and always had time to
help when asked," it said.
"Ronnie was a professional
who gave his time freely
and without question. We
do not understand why
this has happened and it is
extremely difficult for his
students and his colleagues
to accept."
A Libyan security
official, Ibrahim al-Sharaa,
said Smith was shot
while jogging near the


compound where U.S.
Ambassador Chris Stevens
and three other Americans
were killed by Islamic
militants in September
2012.
Libyan security forces
clashed in Benghazi last
month with Ansar al-Sha-
riah, a hard-line Islamist
militia blamed for the
attack on the diplomatic
mission. Ansar al-Shariah
faces a backlash from res-
idents who have marched
against it both in
Benghazi and, in recent
days, in its stronghold in
the eastern city of Darna.
Smith was one of four
people killed in Benghazi
on Thursday, showing
the dangers of a city that
is home to numerous
armed groups resisting
the central government's
authority. The three others
were military personnel.

TALLAHASSEE Florida State quar-

Winston will not face any charges in
a sexual assault case, mostly because
there were too many gaps in his accus-

Port's 65-41 loss to rival Sarasota.
Bobcats coach Tom Tintor was
pleased with the underclassmen
effort in the defeat, but said it will
take some time before they catch
up to varsity speed.
"We just didn't rebound well,
we lost our man a lot; we were


watching the game instead of our
man," Tintor said. "But we had a
couple new girls in there scrap-

"We're just hoping to get every-

The woman told police she had been

ment, but she couldn't

Tarpons

By CHUCK BALLARO
SUN CORRESPONDENT
PUNTA GORDA-
When Charlotte High
School took the pitch
against Cape Coral on
Thursday, it was a battle
between teams going in
different directions.
And it showed.
Cape Coral got five
goals from sophomore
striker Jonathan Jimenez
as the Seahawks beat the
Tarpons 7-0 in a nondis-
trict match.
Charlotte (0-8) can take
a few positives home with
them. They weren't mercy
ruled against one of the
state's top programs,
and they showed life in
the second half as they
took it to the Seahawks
and created some
opportunities.
Nathan O'Donnell hit
the post with a shot at
the start of the second
half, and Mike Papa
and Patrick Bluck also
had narrow misses for
Charlotte.
Cape Coral coach Aldo
Nardiello was impressed
by the way the Charlotte
fought from start to
finish.
"They played clean,
they played hard and
showed great character.
They could have packed
it in and they didn't,"
Nardiello said. "We're
just blessed that we're a
strong team."
Cape Coral (9-1)
outshot the Tarpons 28-9
and earned all seven of
the match's corner kicks.
The Tarpons frustrated
the Seahawks by forcing
them offside with their
trap, but Cape Coral
adjusted quickly and the
goals came in bunches.
Jimenez scored in the
14th, 19th, 25th and
32nd minutes to give him
20 goals on the season
before Gianni Cognata
scored the first of his two
goals to make it 5-0 at
halftime.
The quick goals are
nothing new to Jimenez,
who has played with his
teammates so long he
knows them like the back
of his hand
"We have chemistry.

* AWAY AT COLLEGE:



Martinez preps for lower weight class


By BARBARA BOXLEITNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
As a freshman, Carlos
Martinez has been a constant
in the St. Andrews University
(N.C.) wrestling lineup.
With the team idle until
January, the North Port High
School graduate enters the
break with a 1-3 record in the
197-pound class.
Martinez is preparing to move
to the 184 class when competi-
tion resumes. The change should
help him and the team, accord-
ing to coach Joe Baranik, and
he will be able to return to the
higher weight class if needed.
"I think he'll be more powerful
at that (184) weight," Baranik
said, noting that Martinez is one
of the strongest on the team.


Technique has become more
important for Martinez as he
adjusts to faster-paced college
wrestling. "In high school you
can get away with a
lot of stuff because
of strength and
power," Baranik
said. "In college
your technique
has to be more
refined."
MARTINEZ So in addition
to team practices,
Martinez has been working
during his free time on condi-
tioning and skills to be ready
to last during bouts. "You have
to put in a lot of work on your
own," Martinez said. "We have
to be really aggressive, more
offensive and more in their face."
His matches, including those


against experienced foes, have
been close and low-scoring. He
lost a 6-2 decision and twice has
dropped one-point decisions.
He said his best effort was a
2-1 loss to National Association
of Intercollegiate Athletics
All-American Trey Hicks of Life
University. "I did much better
than I expected because I was be-
ing more patient and looking for
offensive chances," said Martinez,
whose win came via a forfeit.
His poise against more experi-
enced foes has been apparent in
other matches, too, and he has
battled to the end. "He doesn't
get rattled," Baranik said.
"There's a lot of pressure. He's
handles himself well. He doesn't
back down from anybody."
Early on, Baranik said, it was
hard to tell if Martinez was


learning what he was taught,
because of his quiet demeanor.
But his performances show
that he is grasping the material.
"Carlos is sly," Baranik said.
"He's quiet and deadly."
Though Martinez is not as tall
as opponents, Baranik said that
works to his advantage. And he
knows because he has wrestled
Martinez.
"He's got a low center of
gravity. He's got a low base,"
he said. "He's hard to score on.
He's a big tree trunk. You can't
get through him. You have to go
around him."
The way Martinez practices
and competes has the coach
optimistic that he'll have a
successful career. "If he keeps
it up, he's going to be fine,"
Baranik said.


* MLB NOTEBOOK



Brewers trade



Aoki to Royals


Cubs welcome
Rick Renteria

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
The Kansas City Royals
acquired outfielder
Norichika Aoki from
Milwaukee to be their
leadoff hitter Thursday,
which also means the
Brewers are likely to shift
Ryan Braun to right field.
Milwaukee received left-
hander Will Smith, who
spent most of the past
couple seasons shuffling
between Kansas City and
Triple-A Omaha, and
between the bullpen and
the starting rotation.
Royals general manager
Dayton Moore said on a
conference call that he
envisions Aoki batting at
the top of the order, just as
he did with the Brewers,
which would allow Alex
Gordon to slide down into
an RBI-producing role.
Aoki hit .286 with eight
homers, 37 RBIs and 20
steals last season.
Aoki, who turns 32
next month, also ranked
second in the majors
with 40 infield hits, and
.339 against left-handed
pitching, the best average
by a left-handed hitter in
the big leagues. He struck
out just 40 times in 674
plate appearances.
"We like his energy, we
like his work ethic. He's
a pro," Moore said. "We
had a chance to see him a
lot in Japan coming up....
We'll see how it plays out."
Aoki, who is in the last
year of his contract, is due
$1.25 million this season.
He can also make up to
$1,087,500 in performance
bonuses based on starts
and games played.

Rays re-sign Oviedo:
Tampa Bay signed reliever Juan Carlos
Oviedo to a one-year deal worth
$1.5 million guaranteed. That figure
could increase to $2.9 million for the
right-hander based on performance.
Oviedo had declared free agency before
re-signing.
The 31-year-old signed with the
Rays as a minor league free agent prior
to the 2013 season but did not pitch
while recovering from Tommy John
surgery. Formerly known as Leo Nunez,
he was the Marlins closer from 2009-11
and has a career 4.34 ERA.

Renteria gets official
welcome to Chicago: Rick
Renteria stood next to Cubs executives
Jed Hoyer and Theo Epstein and pulled
on a No. 16jersey in a lounge at
Wrigley Field. Yup, it's definitely real
now. There's a new man in the dugout
for the downtrodden Cubs.
Renteria got his official welcome for
his first job as a major league manager
about a month after he was hired to
replace Dale Sveum. The appearance at
the Cubs' iconic neighborhood ballpark
was delayed by Renteria's recovery from
October hip surgery.
"Physically, I feel great'he said.
"It's a little over two months since the


surgery and it went well and the rehab
went extremely well and now just
trying to get back to normal'."

Source says Wilson,
Dodgers agree: Free-agent
reliever Brian Wilson agreed to terms
on a $10 million, one-year contract to
stay with the Los Angeles Dodgers, a
person with direct knowledge of the
negotiations said. The deal is pending
a physical, the person said, speaking
on condition of anonymity because the
team had not made an announcement.
Wilson's new contract includes an $8.5
million option for the 2015 season.

Twins announce Hughes
deal: Minnesota signed former
Yankees right-hander Phil Hughes to
a $24 million, three-year contract. The
Twins reached agreement with Hughes
last week and finished it on Thursday
after the 27-year-old passed his
physical. Hughes went 4-14 with a 5.19
ERA for the Yankees last season.

Source says Red Sox
sign reliever Mujica:A
person familiar with the deal told The
Associated Press that Boston agreed
with reliever Edward Mujica on a
two-year deal. The person spoke on the
condition of anonymity because the
deal was pending a physical and had
not been announced. Mujica was 2-1
with 37 saves and a 2.78 ERA for the
National League champion St. Louis
Cardinals last season.

Seattle officially signs
Bloomquist: Utilityman Willie
Bloomquist officially signed a $5.8
million, two-year contract with the
Mariners, bringing him back to the team
he started his major league career with.
The deal was agreed to earlier this week
and became official after Bloomquist
passed a physical. Bloomquist said a
combination of the offer Seattle made
and a chance to return to the Pacific
Northwest made the decision simple.
Bloomquist will earn $2.8 million in
2014and $3 million in 2015.

Winfield joins union as
special assistant: Hall of Famer
Dave Winfield joined the Major League
Baseball Players Association staff as
a special assistant to new executive
directorTony Clark. The 12-time All-Star
was a player representative during 15
of his 22 major league seasons, hit 465
homers and was elected to the Hall on
the first ballot in 2001.

Baseball Hall VP Haase to
retire: The senior vice president of the
Baseball Hall of Fame is retiring at the
end of the year. Bill Haase will wrap up a
career of more than 30 years in baseball,
including 13 as a top leader at the Hall of
Fame. Haase also spent 18 years with the
DetroitTigers organization, eventually
ending as executive vice president and
chief operating officer.

Rangers sign Contreras
to minor deal: Jose Contreras,
the Cuban right-hander who turns
42 today, has signed a minor league
contract with the Texas Rangers that
includes a non-roster invitation to
major league spring training.
Contreras spent last season with the
Pittsburgh and Boston organizations.
He had ligament replacement surgery
on his right elbow in June 2012 and
spent last spring rehabbing before
making seven relief appearances for
the Pirates in May.


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
THOUSAND OAKS,
Calif. Zach Johnson
already is looking ahead
to next year, and one of
his priorities is to score
better on the par 5s.
He got started on that
Thursday in the World
Challenge.
Johnson birdied four of
the five par 5s on a chilly
afternoon at Sherwood
Country Club, sending
him to a 5-under 67 and
a one-shot lead over Matt
Kuchar. They were among
only five players in the
elite 18-man field who
broke par.
One of them was
tournament host Tiger
Woods, who had a new
driver in the bag and
missed only two fairways.
The problem was his
putter. Woods opened his
round by missing a short
par putt, and he finished
it by missing a 4-foot
birdie putt on the 18th.
He wound up with a 71.
Kuchar played with
Woods they were
partners at the Presidents
Cup and hit his
approach into 2 feet for
birdie on the final hole.
Hunter Mahan and
Bubba Watson were
at 70. They are among


seven players who have
yet to win a tournament
anywhere in the world
this year, even though all
18 players in the World
Challenge are in the top
30 in the world ranking.
The tournament counts
toward the ranking,
though everything else
about it is unofficial. For
some players, it's a time
to shake off some rust
and test new equipment.
For others, it's the end of
a long year.

For Els, golf losing out
to family: Ernie Els is considering
cutting his schedule even more to
spend time with his family, saying life
on the road after 25 seasons as a pro
is getting "tougher and tougher'."
The four-time major winner has
already slowed down over the past
few years, playing 19 tournaments on
the PGA Tour and seven European Tour
events last season. The 44-year-old Els
expects to trim that again, he said at
the Nedbank Golf Challenge, his first
tournament in a month.
The South African, who turned
professional in 1989, said that with
his daughter Samantha now 14 and
son Ben now 11 "there are other
things that come into play'."

Florida teen leads LPGA
Q-school: Jaye Marie Green shot a
4-under 68 to increase her lead to five
strokes after the second round of the


LPGA Tour's qualifying tournament in
Daytona Beach. The 19-year-old from
Boca Raton had a 14-under 130 total at
LPGA International. She played the Hills
Course after shooting a course-record
62 on Wednesday on the Jones Course.
The top 20 players after the final
round Sunday will earn Category 12
status, Nos. 21-45 and ties will receive
membership in Category 17, and the
other players who make the 72-hole
cut will get Symetra Tour status.

Lightning halts play
with Donald in front: Luke
Donald's rapid start at the Nedbank
Golf Challenge was halted by lightning,
leaving the former top-ranked
Englishman ahead by two shots
at 5 under through 11 holes of an
incomplete opening round in Sun City,
South Africa. Donald began the 30-man
invitational with a birdie and an eagle
and was 5 under when the day's second
interruption for lightning forced players
off for good. He was two ahead of
Jamie Donaldson and Thomas Bjorn.

Lewis leads in Dubai:
Stacy Lewis shot a 7-under 65 to
take a one-stroke lead during the
suspended second round of the Dubai
Ladies Masters in Dubai, United Arab
Emirates. The third-ranked Lewis, a
three-time winner this year on the
LPGA Tour, had a 9-under 135 total
at Emirates Golf Course in the Ladies
European Tour's season-ending
tournament. Six players were unable
to complete the round because of
darkness.

Wiercioch tied it at 1-all with

Anthony
scores 19 as
New York ends
losing streak
BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEWYORK-The
Knicks are no longer the
biggest losers in New
York. The Brooklyn Nets
look like the real Big
Apple busts.
Carmelo Anthony had
19 points and 10 re-
bounds, Iman Shumpert
scored a season-high 17
points, and the Knicks
ended a nine-game losing
streak with 113-83 romp
Thursday night in the first
meeting of the season
between the city rivals.
The Knicks (4-13)
snapped a tie with the
Nets (5-14) for most loss-
es in NewYork, winning
the game and the crowd
with a dominant second
half that had Spike Lee
and the rest of the fans
wearing blue and orange
cheering perhaps the
Knicks' most complete
performance of the
season.
Andrea Bargnani scored
16 before he was ejected
in the fourth quarter,
Knicks fans roaring in
support of him standing
up to Kevin Garnett.
Brook Lopez had 24


points and nine rebounds
for the Nets.

Clippers 101, Grizzlies 81: In
Memphis, Tenn., reserves Darren
Collison and Jamal Crawford scored
15 points each and the Los Angeles
Clippers used a strong second half to
beat Memphis.
Chris Paul also had 15 points and
eight assists for the Clippers, who
snapped a two-game losing streak.
Kosta Koufos led Memphis with 17
points, while Mike Conley had 16 on
6-for-8 shooting.

Bulls'Rose not ruling out
return this season: In Chicago,
Derrick Rose isn't quite ruling out
a return to the Chicago Bulls this
season.
The superstar point guard left the
door slightly open for a comeback in
the playoffs if his surgically repaired
right knee is healed even though
the team has said he will miss the rest
of the year.
Rose suffered a medial meniscus
tear in his right knee in a game at
Portland on Nov. 22. He had surgery
in Chicago three days later, cutting
short his long awaited return after he
sat out last season recuperating from
a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his
left knee.
"If I'm healthy and the situation
is right, I will be back playing,"Rose
said Thursday when asked if he might
return for the playoffs. "If I'm healthy
and my meniscus is fully healed, of
course I'll be out there playing. But if
it's something totally different and the
outcome is not how I would want it to
be, there's no need'."

Tannehill needs


to step up, now


Second-year DOLPHINS
quarterback AT STEELERS
... 1-i -_-_-i


neeus LU iCeau
Dolphins
ByOMAR KELLY
SOUTH FLORIDA SUN SENTINEL
It's about time Ryan
Tannehill put on his
big boy pants.
No more excuses about
his limited college and
NFL experience. No more
claims he doesn't have
enough weapons, or lacks
a consistent running
game. Not a word about
the struggles of this
Dolphins' offensive line,
which has gotten him
sacked more than any
other NFL quarterback.
All of those issues are
well-documented, and
reasonable explanations
for this offense's lackluster
execution.
But what's also under-
stood is that good quar-
terbacks not average
ones make their teams
better. Good quarterbacks
raise the level of every-
one's performance. They
show up and deliver in
critical stretches where
the game and the season
are on the line.
That moment for
Tannehill will likely come
this Sunday when his
teammates will need
him to seal a victory over
the Steelers, which can
keep the Dolphins in the
playoff hunt. This is their
window, and that means
it's Tannehill's time to
finally show he's The One.
"He oozes confidence"
offensive lineman John
Jerry said this week when
asked about his quarter-
back's demeanor. "It's ver-
bal, it's in his command
of the huddle. He keeps
our spirits up and that's
been especially big for us
linemen this season.
"He's on top of his
game.

NFL's 24th best quarter-
back the best Tannehill
can do? And will that be
good enough this season,
and in the coming years?
Tom Brady has had few-
er weapons than Tannehill
most of this season,
yet his injury-depleted
Patriots possess the NFL's
second best record.
Nick Foles, the quar-
terback selected 80 spots
behind the Dolphins'
2012 first-round pick, has
started fewer NFL games
than Tannehill. Yet he
owns the NFL's best passer
rating (125) this season,
and has the Eagles in the
playoff hunt.
Tannehill has proven
he's a promising NFL
starter, but that doesn't
mean he'll be great, nor
does it mean he'll ever
lead his team to the Super
Bowl. Russell Wilson, who
was selected 67 spots
behind Tannehill, has led
the Seahawks to the NFL's
best record in his second
season, and it appears a
trip to the Super Bowl will
go through Seattle this
winter.
Some might say it isn't
fair to judge Tannehill
based on what his peers
are doing. Coach Joe
Philbin said the Dolphins
quarterback should be
judged on decision mak-
ing, accuracy, and how he
performances "at critical
times."
"In my mind, those are
the three most important
attributes of quarterback
play at any level of foot-
ball," Philbin said. "That
hasn't changed, and it's
not going change."


Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill looks to pass
against the Carolina Panthers on Nov. 24 in Miami Gardens. It's
time Tannehil started cashing in on some of his potential.

Bridgewater made several
great escapes to help
No. 19 Louisville get to
overtime, and Dominique
Brown's 2-yard run gave
the Cardinals a 31-24
victory over Cincinnati on
Thursday night.
The comeback clinched
the first American Athletic

Central Florida, which

"It's been difficult to

The alleged assault
happened long before
Winston became a star on

about an investigation
didn't surface in the public
until last month, as the
redshirt freshman was

An interference penalty

Brown's 2-yard run to
open overtime.
The Bearcats wound up
with a fourth-and-14 at
the 29, and Brendon Kay's
pass went off the hands of
Anthony McClung at the
6, ending Cincinnati's first
overtime game at Nippert
Stadium since 2003.
Bridgewater was 23
of 37 for 255 yards with
three touchdowns, two
of them in the fourth
quarter. He eluded three
tacklers on a 14-yard run
on a third-and-12 play to
keep one touchdown drive
going, and finished it by
scrambling away from
defenders and throwing
an off-balance pass for a
22-yard score.
He and Kay kept
topping each other in
the fourth quarter, but
Cincinnati's sixth-year se-

* SOCCER: dHOWTHE DRAW WORKS


Draw offers world of possibilities


By JOHN LEICESTER
ASSOCIATED PRESS

COSTA DO SAUIPE,
Brazil Thirty-two
teams, a world of
possibilities.
The 31 countries that
qualified for the 2014
World Cup and host
nation Brazil will be
hoping for the luck of the
draw today. That's when
their names are plucked
from bowls in a globally
televised extravaganza to
determine where, when
and, most important, who
they will play in Brazil


next June at soccer's
showcase tournament.
Will Brazil be paired in
a tough opening group
that could sink its bid for
a sixth World Cup victory,
souring the tournament
that is costing the nation
nearly $11 billion?
Who will triumph if
four-time world player
of the year Lionel Messi
of Argentina is drawn
against Cristiano Ronaldo
of Portugal, his nemesis
in soccer's most intense
individual rivalry.

champion Spain be
drawn to play its open-
ing game against the
Netherlands? That repeat
of the ill-tempered 2010
final would also cause
sharp intakes of breath.
With the world title
at stake and because of
soccer's deep sporting,
historical and political


rivalries, the transparent
bowls holding the teams'
names are bound to pro-
duce alluring matchups.
Around the world,
eyes will be trained on
1998 World Cup winner
Zinedine Zidane and
other former stars from
the eight nations that
have won the trophy as
they select balls contain-
ing slips of paper bearing
the teams' names.
The 90-minute ceremo-
ny will be televised live to
more than 190 countries.


The drawto divide the 32
World Cup teams into eight groups
of four is expected to take about
35 minutes. Here's how it will
work today:


STEP 3: One of the South Amer-
ican teams that was in Pot 1 -

or Uruguay is designated at

LAKE LOUISE, Alberta
(AP) -With her eyes wide
and a big smile, Lindsey
Vonn declared herself
ready to race for the first
time in 10 months.
In an interview with The
Associated Press and USA
Today Sports, Vonn said
she will return to com-
petition in a World Cup
downhill event today, the
latest major step in her
push to get ready for the
Sochi Olympics.
She has not raced since
a high-speed crash at the
world championships in
February, when she tore
two ligaments in her right
knee and broke a bone in
her lower leg. About 21/2
weeks ago, Vonn partially
re-tore one of those
reconstructed ligaments
in a crash while training in
Colorado.
"You kind of know
if your body is ready
or not, and I feel like
mine's ready," Vonn said
Thursday.
"I'm really excited. It's
been a long time coming.
But... it doesn't feel like
I've been gone that long. It
just feels like the start of a
new season," the 29-year-
old American said. "To
me, this feels pretty
awesome."
The 2010 Olympic
downhill gold medalist
and four-time overall
World Cup champion said
her right knee felt fine
and did not swell up after
Wednesday's training run
at Lake Louise, where she
has a seven-race winning
streak. She waited until
the evening to see how the
knee would hold up before
deciding she would get in
the starting gate today....
In Beaver Creek, Colo., Erik Guay of
Canada turned in the fastest time in
downhill training in frigid conditions.
Guay found the quickest line through the
modified course, finishing in 1 minute,
43.48 seconds. Travis Ganong had the
top time for the U.S., 0.55 seconds
behind Guay. Bode Miller was 66th as he
returns from a knee injury that kept him
outall of last season.The race is today.


FOOTBALL

Italian league offers
Tebow contract: Tim Tebow was
offered a four-month contract by the
Italian federation for American football,
and the Milano Seamen are hoping to
sign the free agent quarterback.
Excerpts of an offer sent by
federation president Leoluca Orlando to
Tebow's representatives were posted on
the federation's website. A federation
spokesman, James Dewar, told the
AP that the offer is for $200,000 and
that it was sent Wednesday on the
recommendation of a sponsor.
The 26-year-old Tebow was cut by
the New England Patriots before this
NFL season.


TENNIS

Oudin on slow road back:
Melanie Oudin is recovering from a
muscle-damaging condition she said
caused her arms to swell "like balloons"
Oudin is under doctor's orders to limit
herself to one hour a day of running.
The 22-year-old American, the 2009
U.S. Open quarterfinalist, is not sure
when she will be back playing tennis
and might not be on tour by next
month's Australian Open.
"My arms are so weak. I can barely
carry anything. I have no strength


my body is affected:'
She said she was diagnosed two
weeks ago with rhabdomyolysis
(rab-doe-my-OL-uh-sis), which may
be caused by intense exertion and can
lead to kidney damage.


CYCLING

Di Luca banned for life
for doping: Former Giro d'ltalia
winner Danilo Di Luca was banned from
cycling for life following a third doping
offense,joining Lance Armstrong as
one of the highest profile riders to be
kicked out of the sport.
The Italian Olympic Committee's
anti-doping court issued the verdict
after the 37-year-old Di Luca tested
positive for the blood booster EPO in a
surprise test in April, five days before
this year's Giro.
Di Luca was also fined more than
$50,000. After a hearing with the
prosecutor in September, Di Luca did
not deny doping, saying that the case
"doesn't change much"for his fans.


FIGURE SKATING

Hanyu leads short

Chan hit his opening quad toe
loop-triple toe loop combination but
touched the ice on the landing of his
triple axel and doubled a planned triple
lutz to finish with 87.47.
Nobunari Oda, a late substitute for
the injured Daisuke Takahashi, was
third with 80.94. Mao Asada led after
the women's short program with 72.36
points despite under-rotating her
opening triple axel.
The men's free skate and the ice
dance short program are scheduled
for today.


SOCCER

FIFA mourns Mandela:
FIFA president Sepp Blatter said the
organization is in mourning after the
death of Nelson Mandela. He released
a statement saying the former South
Africa president was "probably one of
the greatest humanists of our time."
Blatter said he and Mandela
"shared an unwavering belief in the
extraordinary power of football to unite
people in peace and friendship."
One of Mandela's last major public
appearances was during the closing
ceremony of the 2010 South Africa
World Cup.
FIFA's president said the flags of
the 209 member associations at FIFA's
headquarters will be flown at half-mast
and there will be a minute's silence
before the next round of international
matches.

Renaud steps


up for Imagine


By ZACH MILLER
SPORTS WRITER
NORTH PORT -At
about 1:30 p.m. Thursday,
seventh grader Nick
Renaud was in gym class
when he got a surprise
request from his teacher,
Ryan Alvarez.
Alvarez, the Imagine
School boys soccer coach,
asked Renaud to play in
Thursday night's game
against Southwest Florida
Christian Academy. One of
Alvarez's normal starters
couldn't play after missing
school to deal with a fam-
ily matter, so he needed
Renaud to fill in.
With the team's roster
-just 11 players after
one injured his knee
and another quit to play
basketball Renaud
wasn't just asked to come
fill in, he was being asked
to start and to play the
entire game.
No problem.
Standing about a foot
shorter than most of his
competitors and wearing a


uniform that engulfed his
body, Renaud got several
touches in a 4-0 loss.
"It was fun," Renaud
said. "It's the same
soccer, just the height
difference."
He said that he'd consid-
er playing for the Sharks
again, as long as it didn't
interfere with the rest of
his competitive soccer
schedule. Imagine already
has one seventh-grader,
Ryu Seibert, who is a regu-
lar member of its team.
"It seems to be a
constant work in progress
because I've been with
the school for five years,
but we've lost nine start-
ers the last two years,"
Alvarez said. "But we did
community service last
week before Thanksgiving
and this collective group
is awesome, I wouldn't
trade them for anything."
SFCAs Logan
Mortenson scored all four
goals of the game.

Stewart wins Myers
Brothers award: Three-time
NASCAR champion Tony Stewart won
the 2013 Myers Brothers Award for
contributions to the sport in his role as
owner of Eldora Speedway.
The award is kept secret, so
Stewart thought he was at the
ceremony only to support his Stewart-
Haas Racing teams. Instead, he was
called to the stage to accept the
award for bringing a national NASCAR
race to the dirt track in Rossburg,
Ohio, for the first time in 43 years.

hosts in the second half.
"We played pretty well
in the first half," Pirates
coach Chip Stec said.
"Then, we got tired in the
second half and didn't
play as well. Leslie did a
good job as goalie, getting
some good saves for us."
North Port coach Lee
Thomas said the opposite
of his team.
"In the first half we
played terrible," he said.
"We didn't pass the ball
well and made some
mistakes. But in the
second half, we played
better. We controlled the
ball and did the things we
were supposed to do."
It was the Pirates'
second victory over the
Bobcats this season.
North Port hosts district
rival Sarasota at 7 p.m.
Tuesday. It will be the
second match between
the teams this season.
The Bobcats won the first
meeting 1-0 in Sarasota.

Thomas saw the game as
a barometer for how the
Tarpons are doing, and
while there's of work to
do, they are progressing.
"We made some
mistakes that cost us
some goals. We came out
in the second half with
more aggression and
fight," Thomas said. "We
had five or six opportuni-
ties in the game. We took
a big step Tuesday night
and tonight and we'll
continue to improve."

and most of them are
still in middle school.

Thursday was the

"I miss (Fierra) out

said. "Marilynn showed a

they're both young and
it's kind of tough to keep
up with the speed of

a little more used to it."
If Fierra does end up
playing keeper, she has a
very capable goalie who
can help teach her the
position: her boyfriend,
Pable Mollineda, is the
starting keeper for the
boys team.

keeps blood
DEAR DR. ROACH: I
am a 56-year-old white
woman with a medical
dilemma that is putting
a terrible strain on my
marriage. I had a full
hysterectomy, which in-
cluded the removal of my
ovaries, four years ago due
to many large fibroids.
Ever since the surgery,
I have not been able to
have intercourse with my
husband due to extreme
discomfort (pain). My
doctor tells me that I
need to insert premarin
cream or Vagifem tablets
twice a week indefinitely.
However, I understand
that these medicines
contain a small amount of
estrogen, which can raise
my risk for breast cancer.
I am petrified to use these
products because of my
family history with breast
cancer: I have a grand-
mother, aunt, sister (both
breasts) and now a first
cousin with breast cancer.
My doctor says I am
experiencing pain during
intercourse because I no
longer have ovaries to pro-
vide the estrogen needed
to heal the inside of my
vagina. He says it is dry
and cracked, and nothing
else will heal it except for
the estrogen. I have seen
what my relatives have
gone through with their
breast cancer, and I do not
want to do anything to in-
crease my risk. I tried the

for me. -J.E
ANSWER: This is a
difficult question, but
let me take you through
what we know. The risk
of breast cancer with
combination hormone
pills is clear. However, the
risk of breast cancer with
estrogen pills alone is not
clear, with the most recent
studies showing a reduc-
tion in breast cancer in
women taking estrogen, in
contrast to what previous
data had suggested.
Estrogen vaginal cream
is a lower dose of estrogen
that is only partially ab-
sorbed. The risk, if any, of
breast cancer from vaginal
estrogen would likely be
small. However, I can't
tell you with 100 percent
certainty that there is no
risk.
The benefit of vaginal
estrogen is that it is effec-
tive for most women with
atrophic vaginitis, what
you describe your doctor
finding upon examining
you. Many women can
use even smaller amounts
of vaginal hormone to

maintain the healthy
lining once it has healed,
further reducing the
amount of estrogen in the
body. With low-dose vagi-
nal estrogen, blood levels
of estrogen are very nearly
the same as in women
with no treatment.
DEAR DR. ROACH:
I take amiodarone for
atrial fibrillation. I felt
more stable and was
pleased with the results,
until the ophthalmologist
examined my eyes and
noted that the cornea had
deposits, which apparent-
ly is a side effect. Reading
the flyer enclosed with
the medication, one side
effect is an eye problem,
with a possibility of
irreversible blindness.
What information
do you have regarding
eye problems with this
medication? Is it reversible
if stopped early enough?
-A.N.
ANSWER: Amiodarone
is a powerful medication
used for several kinds of
heart rhythm problems.
It may cause several side
effects, but in the eye
there are two. You have
the first microdeposits
of the medication into the
cornea, the clear part of
the front of the eye. Ninety
percent of people on
amiodarone will develop
this, but less than 10 per-
cent will have any vision
changes, and it is revers-
ible once the medicine is
stopped, but it does not
need to be stopped unless
vision is impaired.
The second eye side
effect is optic neuritis.
One percent to 2 percent
of people will develop
this, and it can lead to
permanent blindness.
Amiodarone should be
stopped if this develops,
unless there are no other
treatments available.
Dr Roach regrets that
he is unable to answer
individual letters, but
will incorporate them
in the column when-
ever possible. Readers

Simple giving


Dear Heloise: This is
not a household hint,
but a suggestion for the
good-hearted people who
arrange fundraising drives
for worthy causes:
Keep it simple. Make it
quick and easy for donors
to write and send their
checks.
Use a brief, easy-to-re-
member single word
- two to three at most
- that will easily fit on the
line for "pay to" on checks.
Avoid using an elaborate
address that can't be easily
passed by word of mouth
or has the possibility of
mistakes. Arrange for a
temporary post-office box.
Sadly, a local cause is
not receiving support
because the name is much
too long, with an equally
lengthy address. Banks
that set up accounts for
donations need to realize
the importance of simple
names. Thanks for spread-
ing the word. Helen R.,
Manhattan, Kan.

Travel hint
Dear Heloise: I went on
a two-week cruise and was
shocked to discover how
expensive Internet service
was. A suggestion was to
email messages onshore
using free Wi-Fi at restau-
rants. But everyone else
had the same idea!
I decided to pay the
ship's fees for the smallest
amount of minutes. I
typed my messages as
documents and then cut
and paste them into email.
Within minutes, I could
log on, send my messages

and be off quickly. No
wasting minutes or mon-
ey! L.W, via email

Emergency
information
Dear Heloise: In case of
an emergency, we need to
be prepared. My mother
made a notebook in which
she keeps important
information for my brother
and me that we might
need. Insurance and loan
information, a copy of her
will, car title, etc. any-
thing needed in the event
that something happens to
her. It's not a subject people
want to talk about, but it is
important to be prepared.
Searching for that informa-
tion is not what you want
to be doing at a time like
that. -A.S. in Texas

Drying car
Dear Heloise: For those
who still wash their cars
by hand, I thought I would
share this helpful hint.
When I am at the point of
drying the top of the car,
which is hard to reach,
I open a door and stand
on the side of the seat. -

Sister caught on camera

denies stealing earrings


DEAR ABBY: My
parents and sister live
three hours away, so my
family stays with me
when they come to town.
Over the last few years, I
noticed things began to
disappear from my home.
They are usually small
and portable earrings,
in particular.
The idea of someone
stealing from me was very
upsetting. When I men-
tioned it to my sister, she
suggested that it could be
our housekeeper.
After my wedding band
vanished, I had a security
camera installed. A few
months later, two more
pairs of earrings went MIA,
so I had the surveillance
company review the tapes.
It turns out the thief is my
sister!
The idea that she has
gone through my things
and helped herself with
no remorse after I opened
my home to her disgusts
me. When I confronted
her, she denied it. She later
told my mother that she
did take the earrings, but
didn't know why I wanted
them "because they were
so ugly."
Christmas is coming and
I can no longer welcome
her to my home. Why
would she do this to me?
-TRUSTED MY SISTER
IN RALEIGH, N.C.
DEAR TRUSTED: Not
knowing your sister, I can't
say for certain why she
would steal from you. She
may have kleptomania
and be unable to control
her impulses. Or, she may
resent you for what she
perceives you have that
she doesn't (a happy life,
lovely home, etc.) and has
been taking the items to
"even things up."
While I don't blame you
for being upset, please
understand that whatever
her reason, she's a troubled
woman who needs help.
Unless you lock up any-
thing of value, she should
not be in your home.


Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: We are
part of a group of couples
who meet monthly at one
another's homes to play
cards. We usually play in
the evening from 7 to 11
with the hosting couple
providing light refresh-
ments and dessert. Many
years ago, one couple
designated December as
"their" month to celebrate
New Year's Eve. We start
earlier with a meal and
end after midnight.
The issue is that it has
lost its appeal. Many of us
would prefer not to be out
on that particular night.
How do we, as a group, let
them know we no longer
want to have game night
on New Year's Eve without
hurting their feelings?
They tend to be a sensitive
couple. PARTIED OUT
IN OREGON
DEAR PARTIED OUT:
Unless one of you is willing
to be the messenger and
speak for the rest of you,
you should tell this couple
as a group well before
the end of the year that
you would prefer not to be
out on a night when many
of the drivers on the road
have been drinking. It's a
valid reason.
While the New Year's
Eve card game may have
become a tradition, times
change, and as people
mature they tend to make
more mature decisions.
The one you're making
ranks high among them.
P.S. There should be
no hurt feelings if you
suggest that the card
game take place at some
other time.


"Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that
there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now
herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, ifI will not open you
the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing
that there shall not be room enough to receive it."-
Malachi3:10
The tithe, 10 percent of our income, is God's pre-
scribed way of paying for the spread of the gospel at
home and around the world. May the Lord help us not
to spend something that doesn't belong to us. "The
tithe is the Lord's." Take it to his house, your church,
this week and watch how He blesses you. "Give and it
shall be given unto you."

Opening lead: King of A
South's bidding was certainly
aggressive. Anyone who bids like
this had better be able to take their
tricks. Let's watch South at work.
East won the opening lead
perforce. A trump shift would surely
cost the defense a trick and a
diamond shift might also prove
expensive on a different layout. East
chose a low club at trick two this
wouldn't give anything away that
declarer couldn't get on his own. It


ran to West's queen and dummy's
ace. Next came the ace of diamonds
and a diamond ruff, followed by the
king of clubs and a club to dummy's
jack. Another diamond ruff left
declarer in his hand with the ace, king
and nine of trumps opposite
dummy's queen, eight and four. East
still had all five of his trumps
remaining.
South now exited with a low spade
to West's 10. West continued with the
queen of spades and East was in
trouble. He had discarded his
remaining diamond on the 10 of
spades and was down to all trumps.
He ruffed partner's queen of spades
and exited with the jack of hearts.
South was careful to win this in his
own hand with the ace and then
ruffed his last spade with dummy's
queen of trumps as East under-ruffed
helplessly.
In the two-card ending with the
lead in dummy, declarer had the king-
nine of trumps sitting over East's 10-
six and could not be prevented from
winning the last two tricks and
bringing home his ambitious
contract. Well done!

Six Steps to Success


l e Tired of trying to make your way around
that old blender, bassinet, those bikes and boxes of
cast-off clothing? Schedule a garage sale to convert
those extra items into cash.

2 Ask your friends if they want to join in. More
merchandise means more shoppers and more money
for everyone.

3I Clean and polish your items. Fold clothes
neatly and arrange them by size and gender. Group
small pieces (like jewelry) together into plastic bags
so they're easy to price and display.


4. Arrange for plenty of tables and hanging
items so you can display everything prominently.
When it's time, set up your sale so people can move
around easily.

5 Make a list of your best items, and then call
The Sun Classified to schedule your ad. Your ad rep
can help you create an ad that's sure to get customers
calling!

Through The Sun Classified, you'll send the
news of your sale to thousands of potential buyers.
So, get out your change box and get ready to sell!

PAGE 1

Sometimes you need to slow down and appreciate the simple things around you: The little, white lights adorning a wreath, turning ordinary balsam into sparkling reminders of yesterdays magical Christmases. A gold plate on the table, suddenly elevating you from middle to upper class. The identiable growl of Louis Armstrongs voice singing White Christmas just like the ones you used to know. Mary Margarets Tea and Biscuit in Arcadia is just the place to pause and enjoy the moment (and the food). The restaurant, located in a historic 1926 building, is an excellent place to have a sandwich, salad and/or soup for lunch. Its also a great option for a cup of tea or dessert while antiquing in Arcadia, which is how I rst discovered Mary Margarets. Theres no place quite like Mary Margarets, at least not one that I know of in this region. Lunch food is served with more class and care than many ne-dining places. Guests are seated at tables decorated with beautiful tablecloths (green, red or white right now for Christmas). A large gold plate is located at each place setting, along with a cloth napkin rolled neatly in a ring. The feel is that you are in your grandmothers dining room (because who else cares enough to let you use the cloth napkins?). Owners Dennis Tyson and Bruce Neveau named the restaurant after their mothers. They often can be seen wearing old-fashioned tuxedos and even top hats. The servers mirror the owners crispness with the white shirts and vests. Im not a tea person, but there are several kinds offered, including hibiscus, chai, English breakfast organic, Earl Grey, lemon lavender and Mary Margarets signature blend, which is described as: a delicate organic white tea blended with soft rose petals, and an aromatic touch of citrus, the website states. The menu includes two main sections for sandwiches and salads. I keep meaning to try the signature sandwich, which is sliced smoked turkey, horseradish Havarti cheese and cheddar cheese, fresh tender asparagus spears, Dijon mustard and mayonnaise. Its served on homemade bread too. Theres also Margarets chicken salad sandwich, which is Bruces mothers original recipe served on a croissant. Its served with a generous side of fresh fruit, and it isnt plopped in a watery mess on the plate. Nope, its presented in a classy way (just like everything else at Mary Margarets) on a lettuce leaf with a strawberry split like a buttery. The menu also offers lobster bisque, clam chowder and a soup of the day. The soups are served with your choice of crackers or a teapot-shaped tea biscuit, which took me about 10 minutes to gure out that it reminded me of a cookie from my childhood: Nilla wafers. If you save room for dessert, guests can try one of the distinctive sweets, such as English scones, white chocolate bread pudding, English sticky toffee pudding, Bruces dessert crepes, a chocolate log roll or Malva pudding. Stop in at Mary Margarets for lunch or tea, and enjoy being catered to in a way that would make Mary and Margaret proud of their sons. Christy Feinberg is a senior writer/ columnist for the Sun. Email her at cfeinberg@sun-herald.com.Mary Margarets: Class, good food After months of research and analy sis, a consultant has concluded that an aquarium in downtown Punta Gorda is a viable proposal, based on location and future population projections, but the cost to pull it off might be too steep to handle. In a 96-page report released Thursday, ConsultEcon the rm hired by the Charlotte Harbor Aquarium committee to investigate the feasibility of an aquarium in various location across the county determined that the former City Marketplace site in downtown Punta Gorda is a suitable location for a 50,000-square-foot aquarium with 250,000 gallons of water, given the sites proximity to Charlotte Harbor and the interstate. An aquarium that size in that location, the study found, could generate between 134,000 and 341,000 attendees annually, with a mid-range annual attendance of 238,000 made up of local residents, as well as out-of-town visitors. But to construct and operate such a facility, the $55,000 study concludes, supporters would have to raise between $60 million and $67 million up to $32 million for total development costs, and an operating endowment of $30 million to cover a potential $1.5 million annual shortfall between the cost to operate the facility and the revenue it brings in. ConsultEcon estimates the aquarium will earn $3 million a year, based on its projected attendance. Aquarium supporters believe it will cost a lot less to operate the facility since the researchers used lower ticket prices, higher stafng numbers and lower attendance numbers when calculating revenue and cost. The city still feels that that kind of an attraction would be a denite positive for the downtown and for Aquarium feasible, but practical?By BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITER MURDOCK The same two individuals who led separate ethics charges against Charlotte County Commissioner Tricia Duffy, unsuccessfully, are criticizing the states review process after two more of their formal complaints were dismissed against Commissioner Chris Constance. Duffy was cleared of conict-of-in terest charges relating to her vote in favor of $9 million in tax increment nancing for Parkside improvements. Residents Robert Herriman and David Kesselring made similar allegations against Constance, who also supported the plan, claiming he stands to benet nancially from the Parkside project. And similar to the assertions made against Duffy, Constance was vindicated when the Florida Commission on Ethics, in September, rejected the complaints on the grounds that no special private gain would result from the countys action. Constance did not return phone calls seeking comment. But Kesselring and Herriman said the system is not equitable when ethics complaints are thrown out without a thorough investigation.Ethics board clears Commissioner Constance, irks complainantsBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERETHICS | 11 ChristyFEINBERGCOLUMNISTSIDE DISHIF YOU GOWhat: Mary Margarets Tea and Biscuit When: 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week Where: 10 S.

Nelson Mandela diesAP FILE PHOTOIn this Dec. 7, 2005, photo, former South African President Nelson Mandela, 87, is in a jovial mood at the Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg, where he met with the winner and runner-up of the local Idols competition. South Africas president says that Mandela died Thursday. He was95. Nelson Mandela, the most celebrated political prisoner of the 20th century who emerged from 27 years in jail to negotiate an end to apartheid and become South Africas rst democratically elected president, died Thursday. He was 95. Mr. Mandela had been hospitalized in Pretoria in early June, after a series of lung infections that may have been related to his bout with tuberculosis while in prison a quarter-century ago. His death elicited tributes from around the world, a conrmation of the status he had attained far beyond the borders of his once-isolated country. Mr. Mandelas emphasis on racial reconciliation led to a largely peaceful transition to democracy in South Africa, an outcome much different from the turmoil that beset many other African countries in the post-independence period. Mr. Mandelas story has few parallels in world history. As the movement against apartheid gathered strength during the 1970s and 1980s, he became a focal point for the struggle against the Pretoria governments segregationist policies. During his years behind bars, most of them on Robben Island, a fog-shrouded island seven miles off the coast of Cape Town, he became a world hero, embraced at home and abroad as the undisputed leader of South Africas disenfranchised black majority.

Featured EventsPAID ADVERTISEMENTS MURDOCK Wildlife advocates expressed concern Thursday that the Charlotte Harbor Super Boat Grand Prix comes at a time when sea turtles and manatees may be just offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. But race ofcials say a plan is in place to look out for sea life and make sure it is protected from the racing boats. Jerry York has been making the rounds updating county ofcials and residents on the planning for the inaugural Charlotte Harbor Super Boat Grand Prix. York, president of the or ganizing group, appeared at the Charlotte County Beaches and Shores Advisory Committee to answer questions and to try to quell any worries about the race, which is scheduled for April 12-13, 2014, off Manasota Key. Board member Dick Whitney asked Wilma Katz who attended the committee meeting if she had any environmental concerns. Katz and Zoe Bass are the primary permit holders overseeing the Coastal Wildlife Clubs sea turtle nesting patrols on Manasota Key. This (race) is just prior to when sea turtles nesting season should really kick in, Katz said. Locally, sea turtle nesting season starts May 1. Sea turtles could be mating offshore when the race is scheduled, Katz said. Also, theres the potential presence of manatees offshore. Katz suggested she had heard about spectators in boats after races striking sea turtles and sea mammals, but Katz said she hasnt received verication of those reports. York explained helicopters with spotters are trained to spot sea turtles, manatees, dolphins or other sea mammals an hour before and after race events. Twice, hes seen a race stopped for sea turtles and sea mammals. At a recent race offshore in Key West, York said, a race was delayed for 45 minutes and the course realigned due to the presence of sea turtles. Since 1985, running nine to 10 races every year, theres never been an incident of a hurt sea turtle or manatee, he said. We dont want to be the rst race since 1985 to hurt a sea turtle or mammal. The Peace River Wildlife Center volunteered to be at the race to address any injured wildlife, York said. As with prior presentations, York was asked about trafc and public safety. He explained how the race will be advertised as a no-parking event on Manasota Key, and how 11 parking areas have been identied on the mainland in the Englewood area. Spectators then will be shuttled to the public Englewood Beach on 50 to 70 buses, depending upon the need. York plans for a crowd of 80,000 over three days of events. We will also have signage on State Road 776 advising people not to come down (Beach Road), York said. When asked about public safety, York said the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce now is reviewing a 60-page operational plan. Private security, sheriffs deputies, the Englewood Area Fire Control District and Charlotte County Fire/EMS will provide for the public safety, he said. Super Boat International addresses all the offshore permitting and other issues for the race. SBI has a permit application under review with the U.S. Coast Guard. Depending upon approvals, York said the actual race course will extend from north of Stump Pass just past the northern end of the public beach. The boat race courses, he said, are generally 350 feet off the shoreline. Organizers also plan for a parade in Punta Gorda.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comOfficials: Boat race will watch for turtles, manateesBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERCOUNTY COMMISSION TO HEAR PLANSJerry York, president of Charlotte Harbor Super Boat Grand Prix, plans to update Charlotte County commissioners at their next meeting, scheduled for 9 a.m. Tuesday in Room 119 at the Charlotte County Administration Center, 18500 Murdock Circle, Murdock. MURDOCK With state park ofcials support, Charlotte County may soon propose a rock jetty at the southern tip of Manasota Key to help stem erosion and maintain Stump Pass. Its a win-win for everyone, state park manager Chad Lach told the countys Beaches and Shores Advisory Committee on Thursday. Michael Poff vice president of Coastal Engineering Consultants has provided the county with options for the long-term maintenance of Stump Pass. They include a variety of structures to help slow the lling in of Stump Pass and maintain Gulf beaches. After discussing options with park ofcials, they prefer a rock revetment in Stump Pass State Park at the southern end of Manasota Key. It would be a solution without causing an immediate impact on (the Palm Island Resort, the northern tip of Knight Island), Poff said. The main concern of the state park is what will happen to the shoreline immediately south of the structure. The county is not ready to le an application for permitting. Poff said the goal is to continue with computer models and sensitivity analysis to ne-tune the location and dimensions of a rock revetment. We used history to try to site the structure, he said, explaining the idea will be to capture sand along an alignment of the Manasota Key shoreline as it was in the 1980s, when Stump Pass and the Gulf shoreline were more stable. Poff also said a rock revetment can be designed so that some sand can slip through it. He suggested the size of the boulders used to build a jetty can determine how much sand will continue on its southern ow. The plan has also identied offshore sand sources to renourish the north end of Knight Island or wher ever else sand is needed for eroded beaches. While no immediate beach renourishment is planned for Manasota Key, Chuck Mopps, the countys coastal project manager, said that per mitting will be requested allowing the county to renourish beaches north of the state park. Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch said he wants to know what the real costs will be for a rock revetment. Ill carry that ball and have no problem doing that, Deutsch said. Hed like to approach the multi-county West Coast Inland Navigational District for additional funding since it will benet all of Lemon Bay. The county could spend $32.5 million or more over the next 25 years if it continues on its present path of periodic dredging and renourishment of beaches without any structures to slow the southern ow of sand. Construction of either a rock groin-jetty or a vinyl groin at Stump Pass State Park could cost $24.5 million over 25 years.Rock jetty proposed for Manasota KeyBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERDETAILS ON THE FUTURE OF STUMP PASSCharlotte County has posted on its website, www.charlotte countyfl.gov the details of its proposed future maintenance of Stump Pass.

Our Town Page 4 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, December 6, 2013 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS MURDOCK For Katie Rioux, being a delegate is a family tradition. Like her brother and sister before her, Rioux, a sophomore, is a member of Port Charlotte High Schools Model United Nations team. They taught me everything I know. Honestly, I look to them for everything, Rioux said earlier this week. In Model United Nations, students represent UN countries and international organizations and work together to solve crisis scenarios. School teams compete to be the most effective representatives in conferences before a panel of judges. Port Charlotte High Schools Model United Nations program has about 50 students, and it participates in six conferences a year. Bob Johnson, the social studies teacher who oversees the program, said his students take its seriously. When Johnson started the program in 1995, the team went to its rst conference at Florida Gulf Coast Universitys Naples campus. To the members surprise, they took rst place, and have done so every year since. But the 18-year streak is just icing on the cake for this team. The real glory comes from placing in larger, more prestigious conferences. Mostly, our competition is the top private academies literally around the world, Johnson said. Its a great opportunity for our kids to measure themselves against those kids and see they can not only compete but also win. According to Johnson, the programs strength comes from a kind of esprit de corps that motivates experienced delegates to train the next generation. Port Charlotte High School students reach out to train elementary debate teams and middle school Model United Nations teams. By the time students arrive at PCHS as freshmen, they already have experience. Rioux was one of the middle school students coached by Port Charlotte High Schools MUN delegates. When she was a sixth-grader at Charlotte Academy, her brother, John, started a middle school MUN program there and she joined. She currently trains Charlotte Academys MUN program. Previously, Rioux had been on the team as a country representative, but for the next confer ence, at the University of Florida, her new role will be more demanding and require greater and more specic knowledge. Im moving into a crisis committee, which can be a lot more challenging. ... You have to know what youre talking about because theres not necessarily an exact topic you can prepare for, Rioux said. Rioux is taking on the role of Thomas S. Rain, assistant director for policy for the Centers for Disease Control, in her schools Model United Nations Team. To prepare, Rioux said Im focusing a lot on the person Im representing, learning everything I can about him and what the CDC can do.Email: iross@sun-herald.comModel delegates pass the torchBy IAN ROSSSTAFF WRITER | COMMUNITY NEWS BRIEFSTime to jazz it upThe Charlotte County Jazz Society will feature the Sarasota Jazz Project onstage at 7 p.m. Monday at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County theater, 2280 Aaron St., Port Charlotte.

SARASOTA COUNTY Another major inter national sporting event is coming to Sarasota after the International Modern Pentathlon Union selected the county as host of four major pentathlon events including three World Cup competitions beginning next year. The modern pentathlon is an Olympic sport that consists of ve events: 200-meter indoor swimming, fencing, equestrian show jumping and a combined nal event of laser pistol shooting and a 3,200-meter (two-mile) cross-country run. According to the U.S. Olympic website, both men and women complete all ve events of the modern pentathlon in one day. A point system for each event is based on a standard performance earning 1,000 points. The pentathlon made its debut at the Ancient Olympic Games in 708 B.C. The modern pentathlon was introduced in 1912. Earlier this year, the sport survived a shakeup of Olympic events, and was made one of the Olympics core sports through the 2020 games. The events start in Sarasota next year with the World Cup Final in June. The area will host the World Cup rst-round competition in 2015, before hosting another World Cup Final in 2016. The top 36 men and top 36 women from the sport are invited to compete in those events. Sarasota will also host the U.S. Pentathlon Olympic Team trials in 2016 the rst time an Olympic qualifying event for pentathlon will be held in the United States. Athletes will vie for a chance to participate in the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil. Sarasota was selected over a group of cities in the bidding to host championship pentathlon events that included Cairo, Egypt; Frankfurt, Germany; Acapulco, Mexico; Rome, Italy; Budapest, Hungary; and Buenos Aires, Argentina. For the rst time in over 40 years, the inter national championship for one of the oldest and grandest Olympic sports will return to the United States, USA Pentathlon Executive Director Rob Stull said Tuesday in a statement. Sarasotas cohesive vision and exceptional presentation (that) secured World Cup events in each of the next three years is an amazing feat and a signicant oppor tunity for the growth of pentathlon in the United States and throughout North America. Winning these prestigious events constitutes a seminal moment in the evolution of Sarasota and Bradenton into truly world-class communities, former Florida secretary of state and congresswoman Katherine Harris, who helped to lead the local organizing committee for the event, said in a statement. The pentathlon brings together a diverse array of Olympic sports and their associated communities, giving our region a tremendous opportunity for exposure to a broad global audience. Nathan Benderson Park and the Shelby Aquatic Center in Sarasota will play host to pentathlon events. The swimming event will take place at the Shelby facility, while the rest will take place at Benderson Park. Landing the pentathlon is another major catch for the Benderson facility, which was awarded the 2017 World Rowing Championships in September. Ofcials expect that event to attract more than 1,500 Olympiccaliber athletes from more than 70 countries. Local ofcials have pledged $200,000 for the event, with Visit Sarasota, Manatee County, the Benderson Corporation and the Gulf Coast Community Foundation each committing $50,000. Any money over budget would have to be raised privately. This is incredible, and were very excited, Sarasota County Sports Director Nicole Rissler said Tuesday. We have to get to work quickly because the rst event will be in June. This allows us to have Olympic-caliber athletes here for the next three years.Email: slockwood@sun-herald.comPentathlon World Cup events coming to SarasotaBy SCOTT LOCKWOODSTAFF WRITER Players to present holiday musicalThe Charlotte Players will present Deck the Halls, a holiday musical variety show, at 7:30 p.m. today and Saturday, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County, 2280 Aaron St., Port Charlotte.

Authorities located Sebastian Bailey, of the 1200 block of Somerset Street, Port Charlotte, early Monday east of Punta Gorda near Bermont Road and State Road 31. He was in possession of a stolen ATV, taken from his grandmothers boyfriend, the report shows. A lock-blade knife also belonging to the victim allegedly was found with the ATV. An investigation shows Bailey after he stole the knife searched through four cars the victim owned. Since he allegedly had the knife on him when he looked through the cars, the suspect was tagged with a handful of armed burglary charges. In all, this added up to four counts of armed burglary to a conveyance, two counts of armed burglary to a structure, and one count each of grand theft auto and petty theft. Bailey was arrested Wednesday, and was turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice. The Charlotte County Sheriffs Office reported the following arrests: Richard Daniel Chacon, 58, of Tampa.

Our Town Page 8 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, December 6, 2013 Looking for truck that damaged carEditor: On Nov. 22, my daughter (who is pregnant with my second grandchild) and my son-in-law (who is recovering from gallbladder surgery), went to the Town Center mall and parked by where the lawn mowers are outside for sale at Sears. At 7 p.m., after spending no more than a half-hour in the store, they came out to nd the front of their Dodge Avenger badly damaged. My daughter had commented to her husband that the Dodge Ram that they had parked next to was so big and shiny and how the person really takes good care of their car. Well, the hit-and-run was witnessed by a customer who called the police and a report was written. Maybe, if I give your readers a description of the vehicle, someone will come forward and let us know who the uncaring person was who could do something like this. It is a black, shiny, lifted Dodge Ram pickup truck with damage to its right side and missing a round part of the rim that was left at the scene. If anybody knows who this might be, please contact the Sheriffs Ofce. Nobody should get away with something like this. Thank God it wasnt a child who was hit by this careless person who thinks they can get away with this. We are on the lookout and hopefully all of Charlotte County will be on the lookout. Lets protect each other!Sharon Corbin Deep CreekWhy did we not know the facts?Editor: You can keep your current health care insurance and doctors, period. Not only was that not true, strict regulations concerning the grandfathering of policies were written into the law to ensure that as many as 70 percent of both single payer and employee policies did not qualify. The president and other Democrats knew from the inception of the Affordable Care Act that it was not economically sustainable without the inclusion of signicant numbers of those policyholders. Simple proof of this is that in 2010 Senate Republicans proposed a resolution that would allow owners to keep their policies, which was killed when Democrats voted unanimously against it. What is most disturbing is the Affordable Care Act passed and had the support of many Americans simply because they believed they could continue to keep their current policies and doctors. If in 2010 our elected representatives knew you probably could not keep your current policy and doctor why wasnt the public informed? And this is the real duplicity. A signicant protection against an over-stepping government has always been our free and impartial press. But increasingly the so-called mainstream media has become nothing more than the talking heads for a president whose policies they prefer. Like our elected ofcials, the mainstream press knew but failed to report an important fact that would have altered how many viewed this health care act. What is worse than bad government is a prejudicial media because it marginalizes the truth.Jim Courtney Punta GordaPesticides causing all sorts of issuesEditor: A recent New York Times article stated that the number of Monarch butteries that typically migrate to Mexico in early November has dwindled from 60 million last year to just 3 million this year; and they thought last years count was low! Some feel this ancient, an nual migration from the north is coming to an end. Bees also have run into hard times as their faltering numbers indicate. The loss of these insects and other types is partially attributed to pesticide use. Another reason is the continued loss of native vegetation. As U.S. farms clear land to plant corn for biofuels, (even land that was once slated for conservation) their habitat is removed. The article continued to say also herbicides, such as Roundup, contribute to the loss of the butteries food source. It was cited that Iowa has lost almost 60 percent of its milkweed, while another study found 90 percent was gone. FYI: Insects are critical to the web of life and pollinate 80 percent of our food crops. The article went on to say farms were not the only problem but that development is creating biological deserts that are roads, parking lots and bluegrass lawns and that people plant plants that are nice to look at but that often create sterile conditions. How can we help? We as a municipality, and as an individual, can protect our native vegetation and/or plant more, and think twice before using pesticides and herbicides.Edie Driest North PortCigar lounge appreciativeEditor: We would like to thank the original gang who frequented Olde Punta Gorda Cigar for coming back to the Cigar Lounge after several changes in ownership and giving us a chance since we have purchased the place. As new owners, we truly appreciate not only the guidance of the original owner, but the people who are giving this place a chance since they stopped patronizing the business over the last several years. We are also thankful for all the previous customers who have stopped by and checked out the drastic changes made and have given their seal of approval for a place for friends to meet without membership fees.Jose Santiago & Kathie Jette Punta GordaDont give up on ObamacareEditor: The Wright Brothers rst powered ight on the dunes at Kitty Hawk was 120 feet. Sixty-six years later we landed a man on the moon. Three days prior to that historic ight Wilbur crashed the delicate plane. Did they throw up their hands and walk away, claiming it couldnt be done? No. They xed the plane. As a result, powered ight has improved the well-being of millions of Americans in more ways than I can mention here. Yes, there were more than a handful of naysayers. Itll never work. Human ight is just a passing fancy. If man were meant to y hed have been born with wings, they said. Like today, many of a certain ilk were hoping for failure, just so they could say, I told you so! What ridiculous folly! What a waste! And now we see the Affordable Care Act has crashed on its rst ight. But its back up and ying. Not high enough for sure, but the law has the potential of improving the well-being of millions of Americans. Should we throw up our hands and walk away? Is that the kind of Americans weve become? Is that the kind of American you want to be? A naysayer? Or worse yet, a saboteur? Or, are you just backing the saboteurs? Are you a forward thinker or a backward thinker? Remember, they said the same things about Social Security and Medicare. Its a free country. You decide.Michael Rodgers North PortLopsided wealth will hurt countryEditor: I recently had the pleasure of visiting the home of a multimillionaire in Savannah, Ga. It was the home of OwensThomas. The family only lived in Savannah for four months of the year, the rest of the year they lived to the west just shy of the mountains on their 18 square miles of plantations with their 300-plus slaves. Even 180 years later their level of wealth is staggering. At a time in America when a two-seater outhouse was a measure of status, the OwenThomas house had indoor ,second-oor running water for their sinks, toilets and tubs. Of course the Civil War put a damper on such wealth in what is undeniably the single biggest transfer of wealth inside America from south to north. One might say redistribution of wealth instead of transfer even though the word redistribution is a political lightning rod among Republicans nowadays. However, there is no better example of disproportionate wealth than in a slave vs. slaveholder society. One might infer that as wealth becomes more and more lopsided society becomes less and less healthy. The south to north redistribution gave rise to the great robber barons like Rockefeller, Ford, Vanderbilt, Morgan, etc. This unfolding lopsidedness eventually led to the Great Depression of 1929. And again today we are looking at a huge reverse distribution of wealth with the usual predictable effects on the rank and le. Perhaps if we let history be our guide we can avoid another catastrophic mess.Michael Deignan Punta GordaRep. Radel should resignEditor: I am writing because I do not believe Trey Radel got a slap on the wrist. A $250 ne, one-year probation and a luxury rehab center. Who pays for that? Taxpayers? If that were a normal person, they would have paid far more and been given jail time. He had to have purchased the cocaine more than the one time he got caught. What kind of people are in these postilions? Gov. Scott is a thief. Now this. Clinton got impeached for a private matter. The amount Mr. Radel has to pay shows that he is not a rst-time user. If it punishes the Democrats, let the Republicans go and break the law. Mr. Radel should resign from his position to show respect for the voters.Robin GeLottie Port CharlotteLetters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

In a presentation to the Charlotte County Commission, staff detailed interior and exterior deterioration of doors, oors, walls, windows, roof sheathing, foundation pilings, plumbing, heating and cooling systems and decking. The amount budgeted to repair the center ($696,000), which houses the countys archives and hosts historical events and programs, is more than the original purchase price of the facility ($584,000). With a countywide library master plan now under development, the question for the county is whether to sink more money into the historical center or move the archives to an existing, new or expanded library/ archive center somewhere else. Complicating the decision is the countys agreement with the Florida Community Trust, which awarded $390,000 toward the purchase of the facility. The county would need to get FCT approval to change the use of the property. Pouring more money into the existing historical center clearly is a bad idea. Just as clear is the countys need to maintain the archive material and continue offering historical programs for the thousands of residents who participate in them each year. Fortunately, there is a recent project that can guide the countys decision-making, the expansion of the EnglewoodCharlotte Library, which now houses archival material cover ing the history of its West County communities. There are several possibilities for a new permanent home for the archives currently stored at the Bayshore site. One is to include an archival element in the proposed redevelopment of the Cultural Center of Charlotte County, which includes the Port Charlotte Library. The combination would expose the archives and historical programs to a whole new audience of Cultural Center regulars. We can envision the historical center and Cultural Center offering courses on local history and classes focused on individual oral histories and genealogy. That option is dependent on the passage of the 1-cent sales tax in November 2014, which is expected to include funding for the proposed $15 million Cultural Center redevelopment. Another option is to include archive and program space in a new South County library. Commissioner Chris Constance has been the most vocal supporter of building a new library, but it remains to be seen if the project would be included in the new library master plan, which is not expected to be completed until January 2015. Among the complexities of the new library idea is whether or not to relocate Punta Gordas popular, but undersized, library into the new facility or keep both. Regardless of where the archives go, the library master plan discussion should prompt the commission to reinstate its library impact fee, which was suspended for another nine months in June 2013. With new construction on the rebound, the amount of impact fee revenue lost will continue to rise, putting the burden of library construction costs wholly on existing residents rather than spreading it to new residents. Impact fee moratoriums never spur construction, because the amount levied is a tiny fraction of new home costs. The county archives need a new home and the county should tap all revenue sources at its disposal to fund it.

The Sun /Friday, December 6, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINT History will record that on Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013, the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on the Judiciary met to consider the impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama. They didnt use that word, of course. Republican leaders frown on such labeling because it makes the House major ity look, well, crazy. It is, Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said from the dais, the word that we dont like to say in this committee, and Im not about to utter here in this particular hearing. One of the majoritys witnesses, Georgetown law professor Nicholas Rosenkranz, encouraged the Republicans not to be so shy. I dont think you should be hesitant to speak the word in this room, he said. A check on executive lawlessness is impeachment. This gave the Republican lawmakers courage. Im often asked this, said Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia. You got to go up there, and you just impeach him. Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas, who has said there are enough votes in the House to impeach Obama, added: Weve also talked about the I-word, impeachment, which again I dont think would get past the Senate in the current climate. Is there anything else we can do? Why, yes, there is, congressman: You can hold hearings that accomplish nothing but allow you to sound erce for your most rabid constituents. The Republicans in the House know there is no chance of throwing this president from ofce. Yet at least 13 of the 22 Republicans on the panel have threatened or hinted at impeachment of Obama, his appointees or his allies in Congress. Theyve proposed this as the remedy to just about every dispute or political disagreement, from Syria to Obamacare. Tuesdays hearing was titled The Presidents Constitutional Duty to Faithfully Execute the Laws. The unanimous view among Republicans was that Obama had not done his duty, and its true that this president has stretched the bounds of executive authority almost as much as his predecessor, whose abuses bothered Republicans much less (and Democrats much more). But what to do about it? Theyve failed at cutting off funding, theyve had difculty suing Obama in court and they lost the 2012 election. That basically leaves them with the option of making loud but ineffectual noises about high crimes and misdemeanors. In recent days, Rep. Steve Stockman of Texas, one of the more exotic members of the Republican caucus, has distributed proposed Articles of Impeachment to his colleagues. Last month, 20 House Republicans led Articles of Impeachment against Attorney General Eric Holder. A month earlier, Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota accused Obama of impeachable offenses. Rep. Trey Radel of Florida, before his cocaine arrest and guilty plea, invoked the prospect of impeaching Obama over gun policy. Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) raised the specter of impeachment over Obamas threat to bomb Syria without congressional approval. Sen. Jim Inhofe said Obama could be impeached over the attack on Americans at Benghazi, Libya, while fellow Oklahoma Republican Sen. Tom Coburn said in August that Obama was getting perilously close to meeting the standard for impeachment (though he called Obama a personal friend). Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina thought it would have been an impeachable offense if Obama unilaterally raised the debt ceiling. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz branded Obama lawless. On the House Judiciary panel, impeachment has been oated by GOP Reps. Jason Chaffetz (over Benghazi), Louie Gohmert and King (default on the debt), Darrell Issa (presidential patronage), Trent Franks (Defense of Marriage Act enforcement) and Lamar Smith (who said Obamas record on immigration comes awfully close to violating the oath of ofce). Rep. Tom Marino of Pennsylvania gets creativity points for proposing the impeachment of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. At Tuesdays hearing, the committee chairman, Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., accused Obama of picking and choosing which laws to enforce and of being the rst president since Richard Nixon to ignore a duly enacted law simply because he disagrees with it. Contributed Smith: The president has ignored laws, failed to enforce laws, under mined laws and changed laws, all contrary to the Constitution. The majoritys witnesses added to the accusations. George Washington Universitys Jonathan Turley said Obama had claimed the right of the king to essentially stand above the law. This excited Franks, who embraced impeachment back in 2011. Obamas actions, he said, could be considered royal prerogatives, which is, if my historys right, what we had that little unpleasantness with Great Britain about. Yikes! Why bother with impeachment? They need a revolution. Dana Milbank is a Washington Post columnist. Readers may reach him at danamilbank@ washpost.com.The GOPs impeachment fever of Obama Dana Milbank Critics of the agreement with Iran concerning its nuclear program are right about most things but wrong about the most important things. They understand the agreements manifest and manifold defects and its probable futility. Crucial components of Irans nuclear infrastructure remain. U.S. concessions intended to cultivate the Iranian regimes moderates are another version of the fatal conceit that U.S. policy can manipulate other societies. As is the hope that easing economic sanctions will create an Iranian constituency demanding nuclear retreat in exchange for yet more economic relief. Critics are, however, wrong in thinking that any agreement could control Irans nuclear aspirations. And what critics consider the agreements three worst consequences are actually benets. The six-month agreement, with ongoing negotiations, makes it impossible for the United States to attack its negotiating partner. Hence the agreement constrains Israel, which lacks the military capacity to be certain of a success commensurate with the risks of attacking Iran. Therefore there is no alternative to a policy of containment of a nuclear Iran. Irans claim that its nuclear program is for power generation and medical uses is risible. So is the notion that negotiations have any likely utility establishing the predicate for containment of an Iran with nuclear weapons or with the capacity to produce them quickly. There is a recently published primer for the per plexed: Unthinkable: Iran, the Bomb, and American Strategy by Kenneth M. Pollack of the Brookings Institution. Measured in his judgments, scrupulous in presenting arguments with which he disagrees, Pollack comes to this conclusion: Going to war with Iran to try to prevent it from obtaining a nuclear arsenal would be a worse course of action than containing Iran, even a nuclear Iran. Some advocates of war seem gripped by Thirties Envy, a longing for the clarity of the 1930s, when appeasement failed to slake the dictators thirst for territorial expansion. But the incantation Appeasement! is not an argument. And the word appeasement does not usefully describe a sober decision that war is an imprudent and even ultimately ineffective response to the failure of diplomatic and economic pressures to alter a regimes choices about policies within its borders. Israels superb air force is too small, when striking over great distances at hidden and hardened targets, to do more than set back Irans program a few years, at most. And an attack might cause Iran to expel the international inspectors, and might accelerate the crumbling of the sanctions, thereby speeding the reconstitution of the weapon program. A U.S. attack could do much more damage but could not prevent reconstitution. So, if stopping the program is important enough for war, is it important enough for an invasion of a nation with almost three times the population of Iraq and nearly four times the size? In December 2011, Leon Panetta, then secretary of defense, said that if Iran were seen proceeding with developing a nuclear weapon or had decided to do that, the United States would take whatever steps are necessary to stop it. In March 2012, Barack Obama said: Irans leaders should understand that I do not have a policy of containment; I have a policy to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. His red line was the weaponization of ssile material. Yet in his Nov. 23 statement celebrating the new agreement, Obama spoke of wanting to be able to verify that Iran cannot build a nuclear weapon. If so, he rejects not only containment but allowing Iran to stop near a screwdrivers turn away from weaponization. But Pollack, writing many months before the recent agreement ratied Irans right to enrichment, said: As long as Iran is left with the capacity to enrich uranium, the right to perform some enrichment activity, and a stockpile of LEU (low-enriched uranium) then Iran will have a breakout capability. It could be a breakout window as wide as many months, perhaps even a year, but Iran will have the capability to manufacture the ssile material for a nuclear weapon. The agreement will not stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons; only a highly unlikely Iranian choice can do that. The agreement may, however, prevent a war to prevent Iran from acquiring such weapons. If Pollack is right, and he certainly is persuasive, we have two choices, war or containment. Those who prefer the former have an obligation to clearly say why its consequences would be more predictable and less dire than those in the disastrous war with Iraq.

If you arent nervous enough reading about 3-D printers spitting out handguns or Google robots with Android phones, imagine the skies thick with crisscrossing tiny drones. I know this looks like science ction. Its not, Jeff Bezos told Charlie Rose on Minutes Sunday, unveiling his octocopter drones. The Amazon founder is optimistic that the eet of miniature robot helicopters clutching plastic containers will be ready to follow GPS coordinates within a radius of 10 miles and zip around the country providing halfhour delivery of packages of up to 5 pounds 86 percent of Amazons stock just as soon as the FAA approves. Wow! Rose said, absorbing the wackiness of it all.

Our Town Page 10 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, December 6, 2013 VIEWPOINT So far, the Republican response to President Barack Obamas historic address on economic inequality has not veered from the predictable cliches of tea party rhetoric. It was appropriately summarized in a tweet from House Speaker John Boehner, complaining that the Democrat in the White House wants more government rather than more freedom, ignoring his challenge to Republicans to present solutions of their own. But for Republicans to promote real remedies the kind that would require more than 140 characters of text they rst would have to believe inequality is a real problem. And there is no evidence they do, despite tful attempts by GOP leaders on Capitol Hill to display their empathy for the struggling, shrinking middle class. Back when Occupy Wall Street briey shook up the national conver sation, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Budget Committee chair Paul Ryan both professed concern over the nations growing disparities of wealth and income. But their promises of proof that they care and more importantly, of policy proposals to address what Cantor admits are big challenges simply never materialized. Meanwhile, working Americans learned what rich Republicans say in private about these sensitive topics when the percent video surfaced the following summer, in the nal months of the 2012 presidential campaign. In Mitt Romneys unguarded remarks to an audience of super-wealthy Florida nanciers, the contempt for anyone who has beneted from public programs (other than banking bailouts) was palpable. Whether that sorry episode turned the election is arguable, but the GOP brand has never recovered and the perception that Republicans like Romney and Ryan are hostile to the interests of working people remains indelible. Of course, the House Republicans have done nothing to diminish that impression and every thing to reinforce it. They have set about cutting food stamps, killing extended unemployment benets and rejecting Medicaid expansion, as if competing in demonstrations of callous indifference. They complain about the lack of jobs so long as they can blame Obama but undermine every program designed to relieve the suffering of the jobless. Callous or not, they are certainly indifferent to the injuries of inequality. In a party consumed by right-wing ideology and market idolatry, the further enrichment of the super-rich at the expense of everyone else is a feature of capitalism, not a bug. Whenever they bray about getting government out of the way, they mean removing the last defenses against that process. With Pope Francis and Obama a pair of the worlds most powerful voices warning against the dangers of social exclusion and excessive greed, we can expect to hear expressions of remorse, as well as rage, from all the usual right-wing suspects. But what we shouldnt expect is honesty. Republicans know worsening inequality disturbs the great majority of Americans, so they cannot confess that they arent troubled at all. Congress could begin to address the income gap, which conservative policies have exacer bated for three decades. Raising the minimum wage signicantly would be a rst step toward restoring fairness. Rebuilding the nations infrastructure and school systems, rather than letting them continuously decay, would substantially raise employment and improve incomes. Removing obstacles to unionization would begin to level the gross disparities in economic power between the 1 percent and the rest of us. Now the president has vowed to ght inequality for the rest of his days in ofce. He is taking that ght directly to the Republicans, who have frustrated so many of his initiatives. He will have to cast aside the last illusions of bipartisanship. No matter what he says or does, he will not be able to win a higher minimum wage, serious jobs program or univer sal pre-school with the other party controlling Congress. But if he consistently challenges us and his adversaries to restore an American dream that includes everyone, he may yet fashion a legacy worthy of his transformative ambitions. To nd out more about Joe Conason and read features by other Creators Syndicate writers and car toonists, visit the Creators Syndicate website at www.creators.com.Why Republicans cant address rising inequality Joe Conason Though problems remain, indications that the troubled HealthCare.gov website has overcome most of its early difculties may provide President Barack Obama with some respite from the bipartisan criticism that has damaged his public standing and threatened Obamacares future. Still, with Republicans unlikely to relax either their criticism or efforts to challenge the law in court, he needs some positive Obamacare developments to produce a rebound in his job approval and dispel the damage from self-inicted wounds to his reputation for honesty. Otherwise, the very measure he hoped would be his signature presidential legacy threatens to become the symbol of a failed second term, in considerable measure due to his own shortcomings. Even one of Obamas strongest attributes, his ability to use soaring rhetoric to rally support for his ideas, helped create his current situation. Perhaps the greatest damage came from the fallout from his repeated, misleading promises that, if you like your health insurance, you can keep it. Earlier, the messy rollout of the governments health care website displayed these additional shortcomings: 1. Inadequate efforts since his election to establish good working relationships with members of Congress, both his own Democratic allies and opposition Republicans. Politicos Todd Purdum recently portrayed Obama accurately as a loner, citing his dislike of spending the hours wooing lawmakers as did the most successful presidents. 2. The presidents poor management skills, a result to some extent of the fact that his previous work community organizer, law professor and legislator hardly prepared him to manage the federal government. Ironically, for a president once condemned for relying on not-yetconrmed White House czars, the complex Affordable Care Act is a multi-agency task crying out for putting one person in overall charge. Obama may nally name one now, but an Obamacare Czar from the start could have prevented some of the laws organizational problems. 3. Fallout from passing the law with only Democratic votes in both the House and Senate. That was not totally Obamas fault since Republicans made clear from the outset that they would do everything possible to make his presidency a failure. Efforts by the administration and Senate Democrats to work with GOP senators on a compromise health care bill collapsed amid reports Republican leaders pressured GOP senators not to help Obama. Thats why he had to rely on Democratic congressional majorities to pass the bill or abandon an initiative his party has promised for years. 4. The calculated GOP effort to sabotage the law after its enactment. Opposition to proposed legislation on philosophical or political grounds or promises of repeal were neither new nor improper. What was new was how, in state after state, Republican governors and legislatures who once stressed the importance of states rights and responsibilities refused to establish the exchanges for implementing the program. Instead, they dumped the responsibility for millions of their citizens on Washington, hoping it would prove incapable of handling so huge an undertaking. These efforts are continuing with various court challenges to the law. 5. The laws innate complexity and the fact that its initial benets helped a minority of Americans meant most people had little stake in its early success. A less partisan Congress would have produced a better bill. And when subsequent problems arose, the two parties could have cooperated to x them. As the programs machinery becomes more effective, attention will shift to the number of enrollees, especially the younger, healthier people whose participation is central to its success. Unsurprisingly, a signicant proportion of initial enrollees are elderly and unhealthy, especially those enrolling in the expanded Medicaid program. Thats because theyre the ones who have been unable to get health coverage. Unfortunately, the administration has done an even worse job implementing the program than initially selling it. Though polls continue to show more Americans oppose than back it, a recent CBS poll showed more support for xing Obamacare than for repealing it, and a CNN poll showed a majority thought its problems would ultimately be solved. That, plus the fact that Republicans wont be able to repeal the ACA until at least 2017, should give Obama enough time to salvage the program and perhaps his own stature in his last three years as president. Carl Leubsdorf is Washington bureau chief of The Dallas Morning News. Readers may reach him at cleubsdorf@ dallasnews.com.How Obamas own shortcomings undercut Obamacare Carl Leubsdorf morally agnostic. The White House chief of staff, wanting to cover up a bolloxed-up covert operation on the IraqIran border, suggested directing the drone to nish off its own agent, Brody. I will not order a strike on our own men, the acting CIA chief, played by Mandy Patinkin, replied sternly. Hang it up. Or maybe I am leery that Bezos, who is also dabbling in space tourism, was looking for a Cyber Monday PR coup by playing to Americans ranker instincts, hooking our instant gratication society on ever more instant gratication. Do we really need that argyle sweater plopped in our hands in half an hour as opposed to the next day? What would Pope Francis say? And wont all the other alpha moguls want their own drone eets? Howard Schultz will want to drop your half-caf, bone-dry, ristretto, venti, four-pump, sugar-free, cinnamon dolce, soy skinny Starbucks latte on the front step at 7 a.m., and Tim Cook will want to deliver the latest Apple toys the soonest, and Disneys Robert Iger will want his drones gussied up like Mary Poppins. It will be interesting to watch The Washington Post cover new owner Bezos as he takes on the FAA over drone regulations. The agency is drafting rules to let larger commercial drones and airlines share the sky, with an eye toward issuing licenses in 2015, but a handful of states are passing restrictions of their own. Lobbying for private unmanned drones, Bezos will be aligned with the Motion Picture Association of America, which is working to get directors the right to use drones for aerial shots. Its a business taking ight. Experts say there may be as many as 30,000 unmanned private and government drones ying in this country by 2020, ratcheting drones into a $90 billion industry, generating 100,000 jobs. A degree in drone management cant be far off. Politico writes that the logistics of drone delivery will be dizzying: Its easy enough to drop a package on someones front steps, but what if the person lives in a fthoor apartment? Amazon wants to launch the ser vice in large urban areas could a drone collide with a skyscraper? Drones are less restricted abroad. Irish lmmaker Caroline Campbell used one to shoot lm of Google and Facebook ofces in Dublin, telling Wired, We feel that it is no more intrusive than something like Google Street View. Journalists, police and paparazzi jumped on the drone trend. One photographer dispatched a drone over Tina Turners Lake Zurich estate to snap shots of her wedding last summer before police ordered it grounded. According to USA Today on Tuesday, all sorts of American businesses are eluding drone restrictions: real estate representatives are getting video of luxury properties; photographers are collecting footage of Hawaiian surfers; Western farmers are monitoring their land; Sonoma vintners are checking on how their grapes are faring. As Rem Rieder wryly noted in that paper, Bezos may eventually let his drones help with home delivery of The Washington Post, but its bad news for kids on bikes. Law enforcement agencies are eager to get drones patrolling the beat. And The Wrap reported that in the upcoming Sony remake of RoboCop, Samuel L. Jacksons character, a spokesman for a multinational conglomerate that has to manufacture a special RoboCop with a conscience for America (still traumatized by The Terminator, no doubt) scolds Americans for being robophobic. Of course, for the robophobic, there is already a way to get goods almost immediately: Go to the store. Maureen Dowd is a New York Times columnist.

The Sun /Friday, December 6, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 11 FROM PAGE ONE GARAGESALELISTINGSALW AY SI NTHECLASSIFIEDS To support their argument, they cite the ethics commissions own dismissal letter, which acknowledges there was no investigation preceding the review and, therefore, the commissions conclusions do not reect on the accuracy of the allegations of the complaint. Herriman said the ethics commission does not allow lengthy submissions detailing alleged ofcial misconduct, thereby limiting complainants from making their case. So if a citizen cannot send in supporting evidence for the complaint, and the ethics commission does not investigate the complaint, then what purpose does the ethics commission really serve? Herriman wrote in an email. Herrimans complaint asserted that because Constance, a physician, has an ofce in the heart of the Parkside Community Redevelopment Area, he would benet nancially from the rejuvenation of Parkside. In the other complaint, Kesselring contended Constance has nancial interest in two ofces at 2525 Harbor Blvd. He further alleged that a number of the commissioners campaign donors have ofces in the Parkside CRA, allowing them also to receive an unfair advantage. In separate rulings, the ethics commission stated there is no personal economic benet because there are 799 businesses and 4,186 residences located within the Parkside CRA. In the response to Kesselring, the commission added: There also is no indication that (Constances) vote specically beneted his business associates or campaign donors. The Florida Commission on Ethics is an independent, nine-member board that reviews complaints led under the statutory Code of Ethics. All proceedings and records relating to the complaint are condential until the accused requests the records be made public or an opinion is rendered. The accusations against Constance went unreported for months because he did not go public with the complaints and did not ask the county to pay for his legal defense, as Duffy had done. The complainants also protest Duffys plan to sue them to recover legal expenses, which are estimated at less than $5,000. Kesselring said this week he had not heard anything further about Duffys efforts to recoup her legal fees, which in the past he termed intimidation tactics. He maintains it is his constitutional right to redress a grievance of public ofcials.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comETHICSFROM PAGE 1 both the city and the county as a whole, City Manager Howard Kunik said. Now the question is, how to make it work? The Charlotte Harbor Aquarium group needs to nd a group to work with them to make it a reality. In a two-page addendum to the report, the Charlotte Harbor Aquarium committee wrote, The committee is not discrediting the report based on the assumptions that the consultants made, but felt it only presented one possible scenario when many of the variables that would inuence the outcome of the report could have been altered in a sensitivity analysis. The variables include: Ticket prices In their analysis, ConsultEcon priced tickets at $15. CHA committee members believe a fair and competitive price should be $19 a ticket, based on price trends. Attendance In 2012, Mote Aquariums attendance was 327,000, and the Florida Aquariums was 600,000, as examples. But prior analysis by the Charlotte Harbor Visitor & Convention Bureau and another agency estimated attendance to be between 300,000 and 411,000. Stafng levels Committee members believe some $849,000 a year can be saved by reducing the number of full-time employees ConsultEcon recommends and supplementing staff with volunteers, as is done in larger aquariums. The potential for other income, including partnering with another tourism-type attraction like a theater. If the Charlotte Harbor Aquarium planning committee decides to move ahead with the project, the study recommends, the next step would be to create a nonprot cor poration to pursue the project and to secure the targeted site; to right-size the aquarium based on market opportunity and optimize sustainability as part of a full feasibility analysis; to prepare preliminary aquarium concepts and capital cost estimates; and to identify fundraising potential. We have some infor mation now, Charlotte Harbor Aquarium committee co-chairman Tom Kerr said. We felt that we needed to expand the information we got, which is why we did the addendum, and now our committee is going to reconvene, and were going to talk it through and try to gure out who we can attract to come here and build out the site.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comAQUARIUMFROM PAGE 1WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING We were surprised by the recommended size. We think it is too large for our market, but the firm gave us great industry metrics to do sensitivity modeling on alternatives, plus they gave us very good suggestions on different paths to pursue. We will pursue those and see where the journey takes us. Anyone with an interest in joining us on that journey should let us know. David Dunn-Rankin, aquarium committee co-chairman, president and publisher of the Sun Coast Media Group On the positive side, the feasibility study report did indicate that downtown Punta Gorda would be the most attractive spot in the area. On the negative side, the financial pro forma was not favorable under the admission and attendance rates that were suggested. The city would like to see development on that parcel, so hopefully the committee can explore all of the options that may exist. The challenge is finding a vendor who is willing to take on the endeavor. Punta Gorda Mayor Rachel Keesling The really, really good news is that they decided downtown Punta Gorda is a prime location, not just for an aquarium, but any other type of tourism destination. Punta Gorda City Councilman Tom Cavanaugh An aquarium would help to attract people to Charlotte County. It would also bring a lot of day-trip pers in people from around the area who would visit Punta Gorda and shop and eat there. One of the competitive deficits we have (in Charlotte County) is a lack of attractions for families basically a lack of attractions in general. Lorah Steiner, Charlotte County tourism director Its great news that the process has selected the site in Punta Gorda as the most viable location. Now we have to go and sell it to Mote Marine or another to show them that this is a good proposal so the (committee) can get to work raising the money. John Wright, president of the Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce Im in the process of reviewing the study. Im concerned with the substantial cost estimates, and whether the community is capable of raising that type of money. Charlotte County Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch Compiled by Brenda Barbosa and Ian Ross NORTH PORT Although a recent fundraiser to help a disabled North Port High School student raised nearly $1,465 and counting to help his family get him treatment at the Mayo Clinic, the money might be used for a more immediate need. Manny Galans health insurance ran out Nov. 30. Manny, now 17, was 14 and a healthy eighth-grader when, on Dec. 29, 2010, he collapsed without warning. Essentially dead for 15 minutes before EMTs could resuscitate him, he was on life support for two weeks, the cause of his cardiac arrest a blood clot that reached his heart. Lack of blood ow resulted in an anoxic brain injury that left him in a persistent vegetative state. Now Manny, although he has no signicant measurable brain activity and is conned to a wheelchair, takes four classes at NPHS during half-days at school. He has extra time to complete work, and tests are modied so he can answer by raising his right hand, the only part of his body he can move, thanks to medication. But with insurance gone, his schooling might cease, as the nurse who accompanies him might not be available for much longer. His coverage lapsed, according to his mother Millie, for several reasons. The guidelines have changed with the new Obamacare, and they say we dont qualify because of income, she said. Millie explained that, after being denied twice for a conventional home loan, a family friend donated money on the condition it be used only for a down payment on a house. Not thinking it might impact the new Medicaid application, Millie put the money into savings, and it was counted among the family assets, despite the fact she tried to explain the situation. She was notied by letter early in November that his Medicaid application was denied. Since then, Millie hasnt stopped. She has requested hearings and called Medicaid 11 times in the last two weeks, but hasnt gotten any response. An attorney working pro bono for the family hasnt had any luck either. Millie has written to local congressmen and even the governor, but doesnt know what else to do. I made that mistake with the money I take the responsibility, even though it was an innocent mistake, she said, adding the family found out the day before Thanksgiving they were approved for the house, which they will close on today. Once that money is gone, I will be able to reapply (for Medicaid), she said, adding she applied for Florida Kid Care, but was told it could still take four to six weeks to process the application. In addition to the nurse, she still must pay for his medications and food for his feeding tube, which is purchased from a special company. She has canceled any therapies that arent critical. His feeding and his medication, I cant cut off, she said. This is a kid who is 100 percent disabled. If I dont have a nurse, he cant go to school. And if he doesnt have a nurse, I cant go to work. Were running into $1,000-a-week debt just to keep the nurse. I dont have that kind of money. While the nursing company has been accommodating, Millie said she would hate to use the fundraiser money for care, but might have to. I feel like Im letting him down, and every thing weve worked so hard to get will go away, Millie said. I need somebody with authority to do something. But she wont give up, even as she admits she is running out of ideas. Its worth ghting for, Millie said. Im just asking for some more time. Im sure I can secure something.Email: annek@sun-herald.comInsurance ends for disabled NPHS studentBy ANNE KLOCKENKEMPERSTAFF WRITER HOW TO HELPA trust fund for Mannys needs has been set up in Sarasota through the All The Bunnies Foundation Inc., 328N.

See Sports page 1.10 things to know JOHANNESBURG Nelson Mandela was a master of forgiveness. South Africas rst black president spent nearly a third of his life as a prisoner of apartheid, yet he sought to win over its defeated guardians in a relatively peaceful transition of power that inspired the world. As head of state, the former boxer, lawyer and inmate lunched with the prosecutor who argued successfully for his incarceration. He sang the apartheid-era Afrikaans anthem at his inauguration and traveled hundreds of miles to have tea with the widow of the prime minister in power at the time he was sent to prison. It was this generosity of spirit that made Mandela, who died Thursday at the age of 95, a global symbol of sacrice and reconciliation in a world often jarred by conict and division. Mandelas stature as a ghter against apartheid the system of white racist rule he called evil and a seeker of peace with his enemies was on a par with that of other men he admired: American civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. and Indian independence leader Mohandas K. Gandhi, both of whom were assassinated while actively engaged in their callings. Mandelas death deprived the world of one of the great gures of modern history and set the stage for days of mourning and reection about a colossus of the 20th century who projected astonishing grace, resolve and good humor. Dressed in black, South African President Jacob Zuma made the announcement on television. He said Mandela died peacefully, surrounded by family, at around 8:50 p.m. Weve lost our greatest son. Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father, Zuma said. Although we knew that this day would come, nothing can diminish our sense of a profound and enduring loss.

WASHINGTON The U.S. economy is growing faster, corporate prots are rising and companies are laying off the fewest workers in six years. The latest government reports point to economic momentum in the midst of the critical holiday shopping season. The momentum looks strong, said Chris Rupkey, chief economist at the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi. Encouraging as the latest gures are, hopes for a robust nish to 2013 hinge on strong hiring. And that depends, in part, on what the governments November jobs report shows when it is released on Friday. The recovery from the Great Recession that ended 4 years ago has come in ts and starts. Unemployment remains high at 7.3 percent. And growth has yet to reach the acceleration that dened U.S. economic recoveries for much of the past half century.

Page 2 WIRE www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Friday, December 6, 2013 NATIONAL NEWS WASHINGTON (AP) A New Years deadline that could send the price of milk skyward looms over congressional negotiators as they try to reach agreement on a ve-year farm bill. Theyve been tripped up by differences over the nations food stamp program and how to restructure farm subsidies. The two chambers have been far apart on both issues for more than two years. But the leaders of the House and Senate Agriculture committees expressed optimism after a private meeting Wednesday that they may be able to nd resolution in time to narrowly avert the expiration of dairy subsidies on Jan. 1. If those subsidies expire, new laws will kick in that could result in decreased dairy supply on the commercial market and higher prices for a gallon of milk. Rep. Mike Conaway of Texas, a Republican on the House-Senate farm bill conference committee, said negotiators could possibly hold a public meeting next week for the conference committee to settle some of the remaining issues before the House leaves for the year on Dec. 13. But with a nal deal still elusive, it seems unlikely that Congress will nish the bill before the end of the year. On Thursday, House Speaker John Boehner said the bill should be ex tended through January while negotiators work out their differences. Boehner also contradicted the optimism of House Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas, R-Okla., who said Wednesday that the two sides had made great progress. You know, Ive not seen any real progress on the farm bill, Boehner said. And so if weve got to pass a one-month extension of the farm bill, I think we ought to be prepared to do that. An extension is not certain, however. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has said he doesnt want to extend the bill again after Congress already extended the bill at the beginning of this year. | NATIONAL BRIEFSObama to feds: Boost renewable power 20 percentWASHINGTON (AP) Saying the government should lead by example, President Barack Obama on Thursday ordered the federal government to nearly triple its use of renewable sources for electricity by 2020. Obama said the plan to use renewables for 20 percent of electricity needs will help reduce pollution that causes global warming, promote American energy independence and boost domestic energy sources such as solar and wind power that provide thousands of jobs. The order is part of the presidents wide-ranging, second-term drive to combat climate change and prepare for its effects. A plan announced in June would put rst-time limits on carbon pollution from new and existing power plants, boost renewable energy production on federal lands and prepare communities to deal with higher temperatures. The directive on renewable energy applies to all federal agencies, civilian and military. Federal agencies have reduced their greenhouse gas emissions by more than 15 percent since he took ofce in 2009, Obama said, but the government can do even better.Auction: Springsteen manuscript sells for $197,000NEW YORK (AP) Tramps like us, baby we were born to bid. A handwritten, working lyric sheet for Bruce Springsteens 1975 hit Born to Run sold for $197,000 on Thursday at Sothebys. The document used to be in the collection of Springsteens former manager, Mike Appel, according to Sothebys. It did not reveal the identity of either the seller or the buyer, a person bidding by telephone. Most of the lines in this rough 1974 version, written in Long Branch, N.J., are apparently unpublished and unrecorded, but the manuscript does include a nearly perfected chorus, the auction house said.Railroads to offer health care to same-sex spousesSEATTLE (AP) A day after being sued by legally married, gay engineers, the nations largest freight rail carriers announced they will provide health care benets to the same-sex spouses of their employees. Gus Melonas, a spokesman for BNSF Railway Co., read the statement Wednesday from the National Railway Labor Conference to The Associated Press. The conference represents the railroad companies in dealings with labor groups, lawmakers and courts. Same-sex spouses will be eligible for dependent health care coverage starting Jan. 1, the statement said. While this it is not a benefit required by law or under current collective bargaining agreements, the railroads agreed with labor to provide the benefit in light of recent changes allowing same sex couples to access same federal tax benefits provided to other married couples, the conference said. NEW YORK (AP) Fast-food workers and labor organizers marched, waved signs and chanted in cities across the country on Thursday in a push for higher wages. Organizers say employ ees planned to forgo work in 100 cities, with rallies set for another 100 cities. But by late afternoon, it was unclear what the actual turnout was or how many of the participants were workers. At targeted restaurants, the disruptions seemed minimal or temporary. The protests are part of an effort that began about a year ago and is spear headed by the Service Employees International Union, which has spent millions to bankroll local worker groups and organize publicity for the demonstrations. Protesters are calling for pay of $15 an hour, but the gure is seen more as a rallying point than a near-term possibility. At a time when theres growing national and international attention on economic disparities, advocacy groups and Democrats are hoping to build public support to raise the federal minimum wage of $7.25. That comes to about $15,000 a year for full-time work. On Thursday, crowds gathered outside restaurants in cities including Boston, Lakewood, Calif., Phoenix, Washington, D.C., and Charlotte, N.C., where protesters walked into a Burger King but didnt stop customers from getting their food. In Detroit, about 50 demonstrators turned out for a pre-dawn rally in front of a McDonalds. A few employees said they werent working but a manager and other employees kept the restaurant open. Julius Waters, a 29-year-old McDonalds maintenance worker who was among the protesters, said its hard making ends meet on his wage of $7.40 an hour. I need a better wage for myself, because, right now, Im relying on aid, and $7.40 is not able to help me maintain taking care of my son. Im a single parent, Waters said. In New York City, about 100 protesters blew whistles and beat drums while marching into a McDonalds at around 6:30 a.m.; one startled customer grabbed his food and ed as they ooded the restaurant, while another didnt look up from eating and reading amid their chants of We cant survive on $7.25! Community leaders took turns giving speeches for about 15 minutes until police arrived and ordered protesters out of the store. The crowd continued to demonstrate outside for about 45 minutes. Later in the day, about 50 protesters rallied outside a Wendys in Brooklyn. Channon Wetstone, a 44-year-old attorney ended up going to a nearby Burger King because of the protests. She said that fast-food employees work very hard. When asked if shed be willing to pay more for food so they could earn more, she said it would depend on what she was ordering. I would say 50 cents, 75 cents more, Wetstone said. The push for higher pay in fast food faces an uphill battle. The industry competes aggressively on being able to offer low-cost meals and companies have warned that they would need to raise prices if wages were hiked. Fast-food workers have also historically been seen as difcult to unionize, given the industrys high turnover rates.Fast-food protests return COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) People shopping for insurance on the federal marketplace may be informed theyre eligible for Medicaid and that their information is being sent to state ofcials to sign them up. However, states arent able enroll them because theyre not receiving usable data from the Obama administration. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services wrote a memo to the 36 states using the federal website last week acknowledging the information wasnt being transferred automatically and saying another system was being developed to send it. More complete les could be sent as soon as next week. The problem with Medicaid coordination could affect tens of thousands of applicants and represents the latest issue to arise in the rollout of a website thats been plagued with long waits for users and other glitches. Some users who ll out applications on the federal site may believe that theyre already being enrolled in Medicaid or that state ofcials will contact them, even though the agencies arent receiving the information they need, said Matt Salo, executive director of the National Association of Medicaid Directors. The data transfer problem is occurring in the 36 states where the federal site is deployed, regardless of whether they chose to expand Medicaid. Essentially, if youre a consumer on healthcare. gov, it will tell you youre eligible for Medicaid and the state agency will take care of it, but theres no real way for the state Medicaid agency to know anything about it, said Salo, who leads the nonpartisan membership group for state Medicaid chiefs. The federal marketplace was designed to help people buy private insurance under President Barack Obamas health overhaul. If shoppers qualied for Medicaid, the site was supposed to send their data to the Medicaid agency in their state. As explained on healthcare.gov, When you nish this application, well tell you which programs you and your family qualify for. If it looks like anyone is eligible for Medicaid, well let the Medicaid agency know so your coverage can start in 2014. The site also says: If you or a member of your family qualify for Medicaid or CHIP, a representative will contact you to enroll. CHIP is a health insurance program for children. The federal Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services has devised an alternative way of sending les including the patient information to the states. CMS announced that we will be providing states with additional exibility to use existing processes to enroll individuals in Medicaid and CHIP who applied through the federal mar ketplace. This process will ensure that coverage will begin on Jan. 1 for newly eligible enrollees, said spokeswoman Emma Sandoe. Salo said the federal government is currently sending states incomplete data les on people deemed eligible online data called at les so that agencies can get a rough estimate of how many people they may need to enroll. New les with more information could be sent as soon as Tuesday, Salo said. But states are unsure the new les will be complete or accurate enough for enrollments.Report: Fed site gives unusable Medicaid data Milk prices could rise if farm bill looms Port Charloe Elks Lodge #215320225 Kenilworth Blvd, Port Charloe(near Veterans Blvd & Atwater)For information, call (941) 627-4313 ext. 109 or email us at Bingo@cchomelesscoalition.org.

Florida wildlife ofcials say the 200-pound bear was captured Wednesday night in the same Longwood neighborhood in suburban Orlando where the 54-year-old woman was hurt. Ofcials with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission decided on euthanasia because the bear was captured within 48 hours of the attack in the same location. After Susan Chalfant was injured Monday evening, wildlife ofcers set up traps in the neighborhood where the attack took place. One of the traps captured a yearling bear that didnt t the description of the bear in the attack. That yearling is now being housed at a rehabilitation center in Crystal River.Amur leopards born at Jacksonville zooJACKSONVILLE (AP) The Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens is welcoming two endangered Amur leopard cubs. The two females were born Nov. 16 and given their rst checkup by zoo staff on Tuesday. They were each 4 pounds. Zoo ofcials say this is the third litter for the parents, Makarii and Nicolai, since they arrived at the zoo in 2006. Makarii gave birth to one cub in 2011 and two in 2012. The Florida TimesUnion reports that Amur leopards are native to southeast Russia and northeast China. Experts believe fewer than 50 remain in the wild, and about 95 live in captivity in the United States.Man shoots caretaker in BradentonBRADENTON (AP) Deputies say a man who was apparently spooked by noises in his house shot one of his caretakers. Manatee County Sheriffs ofcials say 48-year-old Charles Fletcher had just gone to sleep Wednesday night when the noise awakened him. When he saw someone enter his bedroom, he grabbed a gun he keeps next to his bed and red. The shot hit Erik Kirby, who is one of several caretakers who look in on Fletcher. Deputies say Fletcher has a medical condition. Kirby was taken to a hospital in stable condition.Woman charged with DUI, crashing into school busST. PETERSBURG (AP) A St. Petersburg woman has been charged with driving under the inuence after authorities say she crashed into a school bus. Police say 31-year-old Nancy Kavallierakis had her 3-year-old son in her car when she rear-ended the Pinellas County school bus Tuesday afternoon. The bus carried three students, and no injuries were reported. Kavallierakis was charged with DUI, careless driving and refusing to submit to a blood-alcohol test. She was being held on $5,250 bail.Dead dolphins wash up on Florida beachesWILBUR-BY-THE-SEA (AP) Dead bottlenose dolphins are continuing to wash up on beaches along Floridas east coast. Since Sunday, ofcials say the Georgia Aquariums Conservation Field Station has picked up three dead dolphins along Flagler County beaches. Capt. Tammy Marris of Volusia Beach Safety and Ocean Rescue says a 3-foot dolphin was found in Wilbur-by-the-Sea on Monday. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that in November at least seven dolphins were recovered on Volusia County beaches and another four on beaches in nearby Flagler County. Scientists with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration say morbillivirus is likely causing the deaths. A team of researchers is investigating. The average number of strandings between New York and Florida between July 1 and Dec. 1 is 113. This year 936 strandings have been reported.Deputies: Woman injected drugs in jail restroomLAND O LAKES (AP) Authorities say a woman was caught injecting cocaine in a public restroom at the Pasco County Jail. Pasco County Sheriffs ofcials say 33-year-old Stacy Renee Slabach was at the jail Tuesday to retrieve prescription drugs that had been left in her car when it was impounded after she was caught driving with a revoked license last month. The prescription drugs and the car belong to Slabachs mother. Slabach went to the restroom and after a few minutes, an employee went to check on her. The Tampa Tribune reports deputies found Slabach passed out. They also found a syringe contaminated with blood, a crack pipe, a small amount of cocaine and less than 20 grams of marijuana. She was arrested and remains jailed in lieu of $5,450 bail.Tampa evicting boats in seaplane basinTAMPA (AP) The city of Tampa is evicting about 80 boats from the Davis Islands Seaplane Basin, where some have been tied to illegal moorings for years. The Tampa Tribune reports the action follows a request by the Hillsborough County Aviation Authority to clear 35 boats blocking the airports seaplane corridor. The remaining boats are being cleared out until the city can create a mooring eld similar to the one on the waterfront in St. Petersburg. We cant even begin the process until the basin is cleared, said Laura McElroy, spokeswoman for Tampa Police Department. The departments marine division issued 45 warnings Monday. Another 35 received similar warnings on Nov. 22. The warnings give boat owners 30 days to nd new homes for their vessels. The Tribune reports the boats are registered to owners from Venice to Painted Post, N.Y. Police couldnt nd the owners of eight boats. TALLAHASSEE (AP) The Supreme Court listened to 60 minutes of arguments Thursday over 74 words that could let voters decide whether to allow marijuana use for medical reasons. A lawyer for Republican Attorney General Pam Bondi said voters will be misled into approving widespread use of medical marijuana and urged the court not to allow the proposal on the 2014 ballot, while a lawyer for proponents said voters will clearly know they are allowing doctors to use their expertise on whether to prescribe the drug for debilitating conditions. The court will not rule on whether it approves of medical marijuana, but rather whether the 74word ballot summary is misleading or not. Citizen initiatives are limited to 75 words when summing up a proposed constitutional amendment a condition that Justice Barbara Pariente said makes it difcult for people circulating petitions to put an issue on the ballot. Allen Winsor, Bondis solicitor general, told the court that voters would read the summary and think they were voting on whether to allow medical marijuana for people with debilitating diseases only, but the actual amendment allows doctors to also prescribe it for debilitating conditions, which could be chronic pain. You dont even have to have a disease to get marijuana, Winsor said. While the summary states medical marijuana could be prescribed by doctors for patients with debilitating diseases, the title of the ballot question is Use of Marijuana for Certain Medical Conditions. Former House Speaker Jon Mills said that read together, voters would know that the amendment would be applied to diseases and medical conditions. John Morgan of the personal injury law rm Morgan & Morgan has spent more than $1 mil lion on the petition drive. Supporters need to gather 683,149 voter signatures by Feb. 1. So far 136,458 signatures have been certied. Morgan said about 400,000 petitions have been collected. A Quinnipiac University poll last month showed that 82 percent of voters approve of medical marijuana. After the arguments, Morgan expressed condence that the ballot summary will be ap proved. And if it isnt or if the petition drive fails he said the issue will be brought up again during the 2016 election.Medical marijuana question before Supreme Court EVERGLADES NATIONAL PARK (AP) Pods of 35 pilot whales slowly swam Thursday into deeper water off Floridas southwest coast, raising optimism that the strandings of whales on Everglades National Park beaches may soon end on a positive note. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration sheries ofcial Blair Mase said midafternoon Thursday that the three whale pods were nine miles north of their original location and continuing to move offshore. They were in 18 feet of water about six miles offshore, still several miles from the 900-to-1,000 foot depths they usually call home, Mase said. They are in deeper water, and they are getting closer to their normal home range, Mase said. Even though we are hopeful, this situation could go either way. There is a chance they could come back inshore again. Mase said the total of dead whales has reached 11, with ve still unaccounted for. She said wildlife workers were sur prised Thursday morning to discover that most of the live whales had moved out of the shallows on their own sometime during the night. By early evening Thursday, most crews had left the scene, but a Coast Guard cutter was to remain stationed with the whales overnight Thursday. About 15 vessels carrying about 35 personnel were involved in the effort to track the whales, which were rst spotted Tuesday in extremely shallow water in the Everglades park south of Naples. Wildlife workers had planned to try using noises such as banging on pipes and revving boat engines to herd the whales out to the open ocean. But that turned out to be unnecessary, and the workers simply used positioning of the boats to prevent any of the whales from turning away from the open sea, Mase said.Officials: 35 pilot whales moving in deeper water BootsTOFITHERSTYLEHighStyle.Selectionvariesbysizeandbystore.Call1-800-345-5273 tondaDillardsstorenearyou.TallCasuals.JessicaSimpson Ellister inblack, $199.99 SteveMadden Lynet inbrown, $189.99 Naturalizer Jersey inbrown, $169.99 SteveMadden Troopa instone,black orbrown, $99.99 SteveMadden Brewzzer incognac, $129.99 Born Sage intan, $159.99 JessicaSimpson Clauds inblack, $99.99 Born Laila intaupe, $139.99 Ecco Sculpt inblack, $169.99 SHOPTODAY10A.M.-10P.M.SHOPTOMORROW9A.M.-10P.M. 50463136 D 0iflaid'sMaking CHRISTMASMEARYfor75YearsA.1n17

The Ann Arbor News reports that in September a $3,000 tip was left for an $87.98 bill at Bar Louie and $7,000 for a $200 bill at Alley Bar. Alley Bar co-owner Robbie Schulz says he waited on a group of about ve guys after University of Michigans home football game against Notre Dame. He says they arrived about 1:40 a.m., had some drinks and one of them paid with a credit card. Schulz says the tip was split among Alley Bar staff.

The retired electrician is one of four former servicemen who lived through the aerial bombing and now greet people at the historic site. People like hearing stories directly from the sur vivors, Weatherwax says. And he enjoys meeting people from around the globe just the other day he met visitors from New Zealand, China and Texas. He joked he wants his photograph in every home in the world. This is my reason to continue to keep going, he says. Otherwise, its time for me to say goodbye. Weatherwax was a 24-year-old Army private living in Honolulu when he heard loud explosions the morning of Dec. 7, 1941. He saw the sky ll with black smoke and heard anti-aircraft guns ring. When he turned on the radio, he learned Japan was bombing Oahu and all military personnel were to immediately report to their stations. He saw the USS Arizona enveloped in ames and the USS Oklahoma turned on its side as he headed to his post. Twenty-one ships were sunk or heavily damaged that day while 320 aircraft were damaged or destroyed. Some 2,400 sailors, Marines and soldiers were killed. Pam Johnson, a sixth-grade teacher in a rural community outside Honolulu, said meeting Weatherwax transformed her students. She had been struggling to get the 12-year-olds from Hauula Elementary School interested in research. After meeting Weatherwax, several students suddenly told her they wanted to look up Pearl Harbor. Weatherwax ignited in them a desire to learn, she said. At their peak in the early 1990s, 21 survivors volunteered, says National Park Service historian Daniel Martinez. Meeting a survivor enlarges or enhances the experience of coming to Pearl Harbor for many, Martinez says. It can give people a tangible connection to meet someone who was on-site when the bombing happened. Their numbers are dwindling, however. Its a fading fraternity. Right before my eyes were seeing them disappear, Martinez says.SURVIVORFROM PAGE 1 September was hardly cause for celebration. Nearly half the growth came from businesses building up their stockpiles, a temporary factor. Excluding stockpiling, annual growth last quarter was a mere 1.9 percent. Unless consumers step up spending during the holiday season, stockpiling is likely to slow. Most economists foresee a sharp slowdown in growth during the October-December quarter as businesses do less stockpiling. Early estimates for economic growth are at or below an annual rate of 1.5 percent. Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist at Capital Economics, cautioned that a drop in fourth-quarter growth might not necessarily signal a weakening economy. Ashworth noted that the report on third-quarter growth showed that business sales surged, corporate prots rose, income grew and Americans saved more. The report adds to the evidence that the recovery is gaining momentum, Ashworth said. To sustain that strength, the economy needs more jobs. On Friday, the government will show whether steady gains in hiring over the past few months continued in November. Its the one number that can come out and be 180 degrees in the opposite direction of what you thought, Rupkey said. The economy has added a solid average of 202,000 jobs a month from August through October. And the number of people applying for unemployment benets has fallen over the past month back to mid-2007 levels. That signals fewer layoffs and further job gains in November. Job growth has a dominant inuence over much of the economy. If hiring continues at the current pace, a virtuous cycle starts to build. More jobs usually lead to higher wages, more spending, and faster growth.ECONOMYFROM PAGE 1 soon after his 1990 release from prison. Sometimes, he sought to downplay it, uneasy about the perils of being put on a pedestal. In an unpublished manuscript, written while in prison, Mandela acknowledged that leaders of the anti-apartheid movement dominated the spotlight but said they were only part of the story, and every activist was like a brick which makes up our organization. He pondered the cost to his family of his dedication to the ght against the racist system of government that jailed him for 27 years and refused him permission to attend the funeral of his mother and of a son who was killed in a car crash. In court, he described himself as the loneliest man during his mid-1990s divorce from Winnie Mandela. He secured near-mythical status in his country and beyond. Last year, the South African central bank released new bank notes showing his face, a robust, smiling image of a man who was meticulous about his appearance and routinely exercised while in prison. South Africa erected statues of him and named buildings and other places after him. He shared the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize with F.W. de Klerk, the countrys last white president. He was the subject of books, lms and songs and a magnet for celebrities. In 2010, Mandela waved to the crowd at the Soccer City stadium at the closing ceremony of the World Cup, whose staging in South Africa allowed the country, and the continent, to shine internationally. It was the last public appearance for the former president and prisoner, who smiled broadly and was bundled up against the cold. One of the most memorable of his gestures toward racial harmony was the day in 1995 when he strode onto the eld before the Rugby World Cup nal in Johannesburg, and then again after the game, when he congratulated the home team for its victory over a tough New Zealand team. Mandela was wearing South African colors and the overwhelmingly white crowd of 63,000 was on its feet, chanting Nelson! Nelson! Nelson! It was a moment half a century in the making.Early lifeNelson Rolihlahla Mandela was born on July 18, 1918, the son of a tribal chief in Transkei, a Xhosa homeland that later became one of the Bantustans set up as independent republics by the apartheid regime to cement the separation of whites and blacks. Mandelas royal upbringing gave him a regal bearing that became his hallmark. Many South Africans of all races would later call him by his clan name, Madiba, as a token of affection and respect. Growing up at a time when virtually all of Africa was under European colonial rule, Mandela attended Methodist schools before being admitted to the black University of Fort Hare in 1938. He was expelled two years later for his role in a student strike. He moved to Johannesburg and worked as a policeman at a gold mine, boxed as an amateur heavyweight and studied law.Anti-apartheid movementMandela began his rise through the anti-apartheid movement in 1944, when he helped form the ANC Youth League. He organized a campaign in 1952 to encourage deance of laws that segregated schools, marriage, housing and job oppor tunities. The government retaliated by barring him from attending gatherings and leaving Johannesburg, the rst of many banning orders he was to endure. After a two-day nationwide strike was crushed by police, he and a small group of ANC colleagues decided on military action and Mandela pushed to form the movements guerrilla wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe, or Spear of the Nation. He was arrested in 1962 and sentenced to ve years hard labor for leaving the country illegally and inciting blacks to strike. A year later, police uncovered the ANCs under ground headquarters on a farm near Johannesburg and seized documents outlining plans for a guerrilla campaign. At a time when African colonies were one by one becoming independent states, Mandela and seven co-defendants were sentenced to life in prison. He was conned to the harsh Robben Island prison near Cape Town for most of his time behind bars, then moved to jails on the mainland. It was forbidden to quote him or publish his photo, yet he and other jailed members of his banned African National Congress were able to smuggle out messages of guidance to the anti-apartheid movement, and in the nal stages of his connement, he negotiated secretly with the apartheid leaders who recognized change was inevitable. Mandela turned down conditional offers of freedom during his decades in prison. In 1989, P.W. Botha, South Africas hard-line president, was replaced by de Klerk, who recognized apartheids end was near. Mandela continued, even in his last weeks in prison, to advocate nationalizing banks, mines and monopoly industries a stance that frightened the white business community. Thousands died, or were tortured or imprisoned in the decades-long struggle against apartheid, which deprived the black majority of the vote, the right to choose where to live and travel, and other basic freedoms. So when inmate No. 46664 went free after 27 years, walking hand-inhand with his then wife, Winnie, out of a prison on the South African mainland, people worldwide rejoiced. Elected presidentSouth Africas white rulers had portrayed him as the spearhead of a communist revolution and insisted that black majority rule would usher in bloody chaos. Thousands died in factional ghting in the run-up to democratic elections in 1994, and Mandela accused the government of collusion in the bloodshed. But voting day, when long lines of voters waited patiently to cast ballots, passed peacefully, as did Mandelas inauguration as president. Perceived successes during Mandelas tenure include the introduction of a constitution with robust protections for individual rights, and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which he established with fellow Nobel laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu. It allowed human rights offenders of all races to admit their crimes publicly in return for lenient treatment. Though not regarded as wholly successful, it proved to be a kind of national therapy that would become a model for other countries emerging from prolonged strife. After his presidency, with apartheid vanquished, Mandela turned to peacemaking efforts in other parts of Africa and the world, and eventually to ghting AIDS. Mandelas nal years were marked by frequent hospitalizations as he struggled with respiratory problems that had bothered him since he contracted tuberculosis in prison. He stayed in his rural home in Qunu in Eastern Cape province, where Hillary Clinton, then U.S. secretary of state, visited him in 2012, but then moved fulltime to his home in Johannesburg so he could be close to medical care in Pretoria, the capital.MANDELAFROM PAGE 1 In nearly seven decades spent ghting for freedom and equality, Nelson Mandela inspired and challenged the world to stand up for others. As word of Mandelas death spread Thursday, current and former presidents, athletes and entertainers, and people around the world spoke out about the life and legacy of the former South African leader. He no longer belongs to us. He belongs to the ages, said U.S. President Barack Obama, who shares with Mandela the distinction of being his nations rst black president. As we remember his triumphs, let us, in his memory, not just reect on how far weve come, but on how far we have to go, said the U.S. actor Morgan Freeman, who portrayed Mandela in the 2009 lm, Invictus. He proved that there is freedom in forgiving, that a big heart is better than a closed mind, and that lifes real victories must be shared, President Bill Clinton said in a statement. New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg remembered how Mandelas visit, in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks, gave the city strength and hope. He devoted his life to building a more just, equal and compassionate world, and we are all better for it, Bloomberg said. At the Muhammad Ali Center in Louisville, Ky., on display is a photograph of the U.S. boxing great with Mandela, their hands clenched into sts as if theyre boxing. He made us realize, we are our brothers keeper and that our brothers come in all colors, Ali said in a statement. What I will remember most about Mr. Mandela is that he was a man whose heart, soul and spirit could not be contained or restrained by racial and economic injustices, metal bars or the burden of hate and revenge.Mandela, anti-apartheid icon, mourned world over aaaaaQOoBduo.......................................................................................................................................................................................................Early yearsELSON` Born July 18, 1918 Son of atribal chief councillor1942 Suspended fromE x ter upolitic y studies dueto political involvement1952 Law degreeEmerging as leader1944 Helped found African National Congress Family(ANC) Youth League advocating boycott, strike.civil disobedience against white rule Married three times;six children: current1951-52 ANC Youth League residentp wife is Graca Mache,During the 1950s Banned, arrested widow of f Moo f Moo Mozambicanand imprisoned several times President SamoraMachelPrisoner 466/641962 Arrested, convictedof sabotage, sentenced to five years Later life1964 Charged again, sentenced to fe 2004 Retires fromspent two decades on Robben Island publc life1990 Released from prison 2007 Launchesinternational group ofNegotiating peace elder statesman to1993 Accepts Nobel Peace Prize (along tackle world problemswith South African President F.

The Sun /Friday, December 6, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net WIRE Page 5 WORLD NEWS | WORLD BRIEFSAssault on Yemens Defense Ministry kills 52ADEN, Yemen (AP) The Defense Ministry came under attack Thursday from a suicide car bomber and heavily armed gunmen, killing 52 people and wounding 167 in a erce battle in the heart of Yemens capital of Sanaa, the government said. Among the dead at the Defense Ministry complex, which also houses a military hospital, were soldiers and civilians, including seven foreigners two Germans, two Vietnamese, two Filipinos and one Indian, according to the Supreme Security Commission. Nobody immediately claimed responsibility for the two-stage assault, but suicide bombings and complex attacks are the hallmarks of al-Qaida. The brazen morning attack, the deadliest in Sanaa since May 2012, underlined the ability of insurgents to strike at the government as they exploit the instability that has plagued this key U.S. ally for more than two years. Defense Minister Mohammed Nasser Ahmed was in Washington for talks Thursday, and the U.S. State Department condemned the senseless killing and wounding of dozens.Algerians sent home from Guantanamo against willMIAMI (AP) Two men who had been held without charge at the Guantanamo Bay for more than a decade have been sent back to their native Algeria against their will as part of a renewed effort to gradually close the prison, ofcials said Thursday. Both prisoners, Djamel Saiid Ali Ameziane and Belkecem Bensayah, had resisted being returned to Algeria because of fears they might face persecution and further imprisonment, according to their U.S. lawyers, who had urged President Barack Obamas administration to send them elsewhere. Both the 46-year-old Ameziane, who was captured in Pakistan, and Bensayah, a 51-year-old captured in Bosnia, ed Algeria during the countrys civil war in the 1990s. They had been held at Guantanamo since 2002 on suspicion of having links to terrorism but neither was charged by the U.S.Kerry seeks to soothe Israeli security concernsJERUSALEM (AP) Looking to soothe irritated relations with Israel, Americas top diplomat on Thursday pledged to support the Jewish states security throughout separate negotiations with Iran and the Palestinians including Israels demand that it defend itself, by itself. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerrys comments served as a sort of peace offering to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has made no secret of his displeasure with a tentative offer by world powers to ease some sanctions on Iran in exchange for curbing Tehrans nuclear program. In remarks to reporters after meeting with Netanyahu in Jerusalem, Kerry repeatedly afrmed Israels security as a top U.S. priority. He said he and retired Marine Gen. John Allen offered suggestions on how Israel can bolster its security as the result of its ongoing peace negotiations with Palestinians. Kerry did not offer any specics, and Netanyahu separately told reporters that the process was not helped by discussing its details with the media. PARIS (AP) France has long served as Africas policeman, sending troops in regularly and often meddling behind the scenes to keep the peace and secure its interests on a continent where it was once a major colonial power. In more recent years, as it comes to terms with that colonial past, France has tried to forge a different, more equal relationship, focusing on trade. But it remains a dominant military force for Africa, training African troops and responding to calls from African leaders themselves to help quell conicts. The U.N. authorized an intervention force Thursday to prevent a bloodbath in Central African Republic, where anarchy is threatening to descend into genocide. France has said it is ready to double the number of troops it has there. Here are some recent examples of Frances intervention in African conict:Central African Republic For several years, France has provided support for troops in Central African Republic, one of the worlds poorest and least stable countries. A coup earlier this year plunged the country into chaos again, and attacks are mounting between Muslim and Christian militias, raising fears of genocide. France currently has about 600 troops on the ground providing some security in the capital and keeping the only international airport open. It plans to bring that number to 1,200.MaliAfter al-Qaida-linked ghters took over northern Mali and threatened to make the vast country a sanctuary for terrorists who could strike Europe, Malis government called on France for help in January. France had as many as 4,000 troops in the country at the height of the operation, which pushed the Islamists back and then rooted them out of their strongholds throughout Malis north. While the main ghting is over, France still has around 2,800 troops in Mali but is gradually reducing the deployment. The commitment has lasted much longer than originally expected, though France is supposed to hand over security to African troops under a U.N. mandate.LibyaAs Arab Spring uprisings swept the Middle East, Libyans started to protest the decades-long rule of Moammar Gadha. When his forces clamped down brutally on civilians, France, along with Britain, pushed for an international response. With a resolution authorizing force, French along with other NATO troops conducted bombing raids and enforced a no-y zone that helped rebels defeat Gadha and establish a government. Continued violence and disorder, however, have led some to wonder if the medicine of Western intervention is worse than the disease.As unrest shows, France still Africas policeman BANGUI, Central African Republic (AP) Armed Christian ghters who support the countrys exiled president assaulted the capital at dawn on Thursday with ries and machetes, leaving nearly 100 people dead. Shrouded bodies were lined up in a mosque as dozens of wounded lay on bloodstained hospital oors. The ambush on Muslim neighborhoods of Bangui came as the United Nations voted to send a contingent of French troops to try to stabilize the country, and French President Francois Hollande announced plans to double the force. The daylong gunbattle touched even the most protected parts of the capital, including the residence of the prime minister, underscoring the volatile mix of arms and ideology facing the arriving French force. Scores died in Thursdays attack, including 48 people whose bodies were laid out at a mosque in a northern suburb of Bangui. Separately, a Doctors Without Borders spokeswoman, Amelie Ketoff, said another 50 deaths had been conrmed, bringing the toll to 98. Some died of bullet wounds, others from what appeared to be machete blows using a weapon known in the local language as a balaka. The Christian militia, whose members are believed to have led the attack Thursday, call themselves the anti-balaka, reminiscent of the horric violence once seen in Rwanda. Rebel leaderturned-president Michel Djotodia appealed for calm, even as his residence was looted and vandalized by the ghters. He announced a dusk-to-dawn curfew in a bid to stem the threat of retaliatory violence against Christians, following the early morning attack on Muslim neighborhoods. This morning the enemies of Central African Republic wanted to destabilize the country but they have failed, Djotodia announced in a speech broadcast in the Sango language on state radio. France already has hundreds of soldiers in Bangui, and an armored personnel carrier and other military vehicles patrolled the streets. The roads were otherwise bare except for the brightly painted pickup trucks driven by the ex-rebels who run the government. The resolution passed by the U.N. Security Council on Thursday allows France to send hundreds more troops for a temporary period. Speaking from the Elysee Palace in Paris, Hollande said the 600 troops already in the country would be doubled within a few days, even a few hours to around 1,200. The U.N. measure also authorizes the deployment of an African Union-led force to Central African Republic for a year to protect civilians and restore public order. The AU force is replacing a regional peacekeeping mission whose presence has been mainly limited to the capital and a few northern cities. Its necessary to intervene very quickly to establish order in this country, in order that humanitarian aid arrives and to avoid an actual civil war based on religion, said Frances U.N. ambassador, Gerard Araud, speaking on French RTL radio Thursday.Clashes sweep CAR capital ahead of French troops SPECIALS!

(Bloomberg) Gold futures declined Thursday for the third time in four days as U.S. economic data reinforced concern that the Federal Reserve will begin trimming stimulus measures, curbing demand for precious metals as a haven. The U.S. expanded at 3.6 percent rate in the third quarter, up from an initial estimate of 2.8 percent, while jobless claims unexpectedly declined to the lowest level in more than two months as of Nov. 30, separate government reports showed today. Gold pared losses after the dollar declined, increasing demand for the precious metal as an alternative investment. The U.S. is on the right track, and tapering is clearly becoming a possibility, Phil Streible, a senior commodity broker at R.J. OBrien & Associates, said in a telephone interview from Chicago. The dollar dropping is probably the only thing working for gold today. Gold futures for February delivery slid 1.2 percent to settle at $1,231.90 an ounce at 1:41 p.m. on the Comex in New York. Earlier, prices fell as much as 2.5 percent. The dollar declined as much as 0.6 percent against the euro after the European Central Bank President Mario Draghi refrained from introducing further monetary stimulus. Fed policymakers signaled last month that the labor market will probably improve enough to warrant slowing their $85 billion of monthly bond purchases. Bullion rose 70 percent from December 2008 to June 2011 as the central bank pumped more than $2 trillion into the nancial system. The Fed next meets Dec. 17-18. Gold has tumbled 26 percent this year, heading for the rst annual drop in 13 years.Gold declines third time in four days NEW YORK (AP) The outlook for hiring is improving and the economy is growing at its fastest pace in more than a year, so whats the bad news for the stock market? Investors believe the encouraging signs on the economy will push the Federal Reserve closer to pulling back on its $85 billion-a-month bond-buying program. That stimulus, which is intended to hold down interest rates, has been helping to power this years record-setting run in the stock market. The S&P 500 index fell 7.78 points, or 0.4 percent, to 1,785.03. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 68.26 points, or 0.4 percent, to 15,821.51. The Nasdaq composite declined 4.84 points, or 0.1 percent, at 4,033.16.Stocks fall on Wall Street r0 0

There were no credible claims of responsibility, but suspicion is likely to fall on Islamic militants active in Benghazi. It came ve days after al-Qaidas American spokesman called upon Libyans to attack U.S. interests everywhere as revenge for U.S. special forces snatching an al-Qaida suspect off the streets of Tripoli in October and whisking him out of the country. The United States called on the Libyan government to thoroughly investigate the death of the American. White House spokesman Jay Carney said President Barack Obama had been briefed on the situation. The U.S. State Department identied the teacher as Ronald Thomas Smith II. The State Department did not provide Smiths hometown, and it was not possible to immediately conrm a statement from a Libyan ofcial that he was from Texas. The University of Texas in Austin said he graduated from the school in 2006 with a masters degree in chemistry. Smith taught chemistry at Benghazis International School, a Libyan-owned institute that follows a British curriculum. The school posted condolences on its Facebook page. He was a much loved teacher who supported students in their learning and always had time to help when asked, it said. Ronnie was a professional who gave his time freely and without question. We do not understand why this has happened and it is extremely difcult for his students and his colleagues to accept. A Libyan security ofcial, Ibrahim al-Sharaa, said Smith was shot while jogging near the compound where U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed by Islamic militants in September 2012. Libyan security forces clashed in Benghazi last month with Ansar al-Shariah, a hard-line Islamist militia blamed for the attack on the diplomatic mission. Ansar al-Shariah faces a backlash from residents who have marched against it both in Benghazi and, in recent days, in its stronghold in the eastern city of Darna. Smith was one of four people killed in Benghazi on Thursday, showing the dangers of a city that is home to numerous armed groups resisting the central governments authority. The three others were military personnel.American teacher shot dead in Libyas Benghazi 50463210 Christmas through the eyes of a child is our theme this year Dazzle the crowd in downtown Punta Gorda with your very best float, decorated car or performance with a marching unit Noon Saturday, December 14, at Taylor Road, downtown Punta Gorda Awards will be presented to first, second and third place winners in a variety of categories RESERVE YOUR SPACE IN THE PARADE BY CALLING 941-627-2222 TODAY 50446734 Charlotte County Chamber of Commerces 35 th Annual Christmas Parade!

TALLAHASSEE Florida State quar terback and Heisman hopeful Jameis Winston will not face any charges in a sexual assault case, mostly because there were too many gaps in his accusers story, a prosecutor said Thursday. State Attorney Willie Meggs said the womans memory lapses about the events last December were problematic and there was not enough evidence to win a conviction. Its not inconsistencies, its lack of memory most of the time, Meggs said. The woman told police she had been drinking at a bar with friends and went home with a man she didnt know. She said the alleged assault took place at an off-campus apartment, but she couldnt remember where it was. A month later, she identied her alleged attacker as the quarter back. Winstons attorney said the sex was consensual.

Due to a rash of injuries suffered over the weekend, a handful of junior varsity players made their varsity debuts during North Ports 65-41 loss to rival Sarasota. Bobcats coach Tom Tintor was pleased with the underclassmen effort in the defeat, but said it will take some time before they catch up to varsity speed. We just didnt rebound well, we lost our man a lot; we were watching the game instead of our man, Tintor said. But we had a couple new girls in there scrap ping. (Kajahda) McKoy never gave up, and Caitlin Williams only practiced with us for one day, and she did alright. Were just hoping to get every one healthy as soon as possible, and were looking forward to playing (Sarasota) again later in the year.

Port Charlotte showed its offensive quickness in the first half. Senior Karen Arzu took a pass from co-captain Alexis Arroyo and netted the games first goal with 30 minutes left in the half. Not long after that, the Pirates other co-captain, McKenna Sultan, dribbled the ball much of the field and shot it into the net for a 2-0 advantage. It was Sultans ninth goal of the season. But the host Bobcats (4-4, 2-4 District 4A-11), refused to quit and put their game together in the second half. Freshman Madison Krstec scored from 10 yards out with 28 minutes left in the match.

In Thursdays game against Southwest Florida Christian Academy, Fierra was very busy in the net, saving all but four of more than 20 shots that came her way.

And it showed. Cape Coral got five goals from sophomore striker Jonathan Jimenez as the Seahawks beat the Tarpons 7-0 in a nondistrict match. Charlotte (0-8) can take a few positives home with them. They werent mercy ruled against one of the states top programs, and they showed life in the second half as they took it to the Seahawks and created some opportunities. Nathan ODonnell hit the post with a shot at the start of the second half, and Mike Papa and Patrick Bluck also had narrow misses for Charlotte. Cape Coral coach Aldo Nardiello was impressed by the way the Charlotte fought from start to finish. They played clean, they played hard and showed great character. They could have packed it in and they didnt, Nardiello said. Were just blessed that were a strong team. Cape Coral (9-1) outshot the Tarpons 28-9 and earned all seven of the matchs corner kicks. The Tarpons frustrated the Seahawks by forcing them offside with their trap, but Cape Coral adjusted quickly and the goals came in bunches. Jimenez scored in the 14th, 19th, 25th and 32nd minutes to give him 20 goals on the season before Gianni Cognata scored the first of his two goals to make it 5-0 at halftime. The quick goals are nothing new to Jimenez, who has played with his teammates so long he knows them like the back of his hand We have chemistry.

AWAY AT COLLEGE: Carlos MartinezMartinez preps for lower weight classAs a freshman, Carlos Martinez has been a constant in the St. Andrews University (N.C.) wrestling lineup. With the team idle until January, the North Port High School graduate enters the break with a 1-3 record in the 197-pound class. Martinez is preparing to move to the 184 class when competition resumes. The change should help him and the team, according to coach Joe Baranik, and he will be able to return to the higher weight class if needed. I think hell be more powerful at that (184) weight, Baranik said, noting that Martinez is one of the strongest on the team. Technique has become more important for Martinez as he adjusts to faster-paced college wrestling. In high school you can get away with a lot of stuff because of strength and power, Baranik said. In college your technique has to be more rened. So in addition to team practices, Martinez has been working during his free time on conditioning and skills to be ready to last during bouts. You have to put in a lot of work on your own, Martinez said. We have to be really aggressive, more offensive and more in their face. His matches, including those against experienced foes, have been close and low-scoring. He lost a 6-2 decision and twice has dropped one-point decisions. He said his best effort was a 2-1 loss to National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics All-American Trey Hicks of Life University. I did much better than I expected because I was being more patient and looking for offensive chances, said Martinez, whose win came via a forfeit. His poise against more experienced foes has been apparent in other matches, too, and he has battled to the end. He doesnt get rattled, Baranik said. Theres a lot of pressure. Hes handles himself well. He doesnt back down from anybody. Early on, Baranik said, it was hard to tell if Martinez was learning what he was taught, because of his quiet demeanor. But his performances show that he is grasping the material. Carlos is sly, Baranik said. Hes quiet and deadly. Though Martinez is not as tall as opponents, Baranik said that works to his advantage. And he knows because he has wrestled Martinez. Hes got a low center of gravity. Hes got a low base, he said. Hes hard to score on. Hes a big tree trunk. You cant get through him. You have to go around him. The way Martinez practices and competes has the coach optimistic that hell have a successful career. If he keeps it up, hes going to be ne, Baranik said.By BARBARA BOXLEITNERSUN CORRESPONDENTMARTINEZ THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. Zach Johnson already is looking ahead to next year, and one of his priorities is to score better on the par 5s. He got started on that Thursday in the World Challenge. Johnson birdied four of the ve par 5s on a chilly afternoon at Sherwood Country Club, sending him to a 5-under 67 and a one-shot lead over Matt Kuchar. They were among only ve players in the elite 18-man eld who broke par. One of them was tournament host Tiger Woods, who had a new driver in the bag and missed only two fairways. The problem was his putter. Woods opened his round by missing a short par putt, and he nished it by missing a 4-foot birdie putt on the 18th. He wound up with a 71. Kuchar played with Woods they were partners at the Presidents Cup and hit his approach into 2 feet for birdie on the nal hole. Hunter Mahan and Bubba Watson were at 70. They are among seven players who have yet to win a tournament anywhere in the world this year, even though all 18 players in the World Challenge are in the top 30 in the world ranking. The tournament counts toward the ranking, though everything else about it is unofcial. For some players, its a time to shake off some rust and test new equipment. For others, its the end of a long year. For Els, golf losing out to family: Ernie Els is considering cutting his schedule even more to spend time with his family, saying life on the road after 25 seasons as a pro is getting tougher and tougher. The four-time major winner has already slowed down over the past few years, playing 19 tournaments on the PGA Tour and seven European Tour events last season. The 44-year-old Els expects to trim that again, he said at the Nedbank Golf Challenge, his first tournament in a month. The South African, who turned professional in 1989, said that with his daughter Samantha now 14 and son Ben now 11 there are other things that come into play. Florida teen leads LPGA Q-school: Jaye Marie Green shot a 4-under 68 to increase her lead to five strokes after the second round of the LPGA Tours qualifying tournament in Daytona Beach. The 19-year-old from Boca Raton had a 14-under 130 total at LPGA International. She played the Hills Course after shooting a course-record 62 on Wednesday on the Jones Course. The top 20 players after the final round Sunday will earn Category 12 status, Nos. 21-45 and ties will receive membership in Category 17, and the other players who make the 72-hole cut will get Symetra Tour status. Lightning halts play with Donald in front: Luke Donalds rapid start at the Nedbank Golf Challenge was halted by lightning, leaving the former top-ranked Englishman ahead by two shots at 5 under through 11 holes of an incomplete opening round in Sun City, South Africa. Donald began the 30-man invitational with a birdie and an eagle and was 5 under when the days second interruption for lightning forced players off for good. He was two ahead of Jamie Donaldson and Thomas Bjorn. Lewis leads in Dubai: Stacy Lewis shot a 7-under 65 to take a one-stroke lead during the suspended second round of the Dubai Ladies Masters in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The third-ranked Lewis, a three-time winner this year on the LPGA Tour, had a 9-under 135 total at Emirates Golf Course in the Ladies European Tours season-ending tournament. Six players were unable to complete the round because of darkness.

Milwaukee received lefthander Will Smith, who spent most of the past couple seasons shufing between Kansas City and Triple-A Omaha, and between the bullpen and the starting rotation. Royals general manager Dayton Moore said on a conference call that he envisions Aoki batting at the top of the order, just as he did with the Brewers, which would allow Alex Gordon to slide down into an RBI-producing role. Aoki hit .286 with eight homers, 37 RBIs and 20 steals last season. Aoki, who turns 32 next month, also ranked second in the majors with 40 ineld hits, and .339 against left-handed pitching, the best average by a left-handed hitter in the big leagues. He struck out just 40 times in 674 plate appearances. We like his energy, we like his work ethic. Hes a pro, Moore said. We had a chance to see him a lot in Japan coming up. ... Well see how it plays out. Aoki, who is in the last year of his contract, is due $1.25 million this season. He can also make up to $1,087,500 in performance bonuses based on starts and games played. Rays re-sign Oviedo: Tampa Bay signed reliver Juan Carlos Oviedo to a one-year deal worth $1.5 million guaranteed. That figure could increase to $2.9 million for the right-hander based on performance. Oviedo had declared free agency before re-signing. The 31-year-old signed with the Rays as a minor league free agent prior to the 2013 season but did not pitch while recovering from Tommy John surgery. Formerly known as Leo Nuez, he was the Marlins closer from 2009-11 and has a career 4.34 ERA. Renteria gets official welcome to Chicago: Rick Renteria stood next to Cubs executives Jed Hoyer and Theo Epstein and pulled on a No. 16 jersey in a lounge at Wrigley Field. Yup, its definitely real now. Theres a new man in the dugout for the downtrodden Cubs. Renteria got his official welcome for his first job as a major league manager about a month after he was hired to replace Dale Sveum. The appearance at the Cubs iconic neighborhood ballpark was delayed by Renterias recovery from October hip surgery. Physically, I feel great, he said. Its a little over two months since the surgery and it went well and the rehab went extremely well and now just trying to get back to normal. Source says Wilson, Dodgers agree: Free-agent reliever Brian Wilson agreed to terms on a $10 million, one-year contract to stay with the Los Angeles Dodgers, a person with direct knowledge of the negotiations said. The deal is pending a physical, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the team had not made an announcement. Wilsons new contract includes an $8.5 million option for the 2015 season. Twins announce Hughes deal: Minnesota signed former Yankees right-hander Phil Hughes to a $24 million, three-year contract. The Twins reached agreement with Hughes last week and finished it on Thursday after the 27-year-old passed his physical. Hughes went 4-14 with a 5.19 ERA for the Yankees last season. Source says Red Sox sign reliever Mujica: A person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press that Boston agreed with reliever Edward Mujica on a two-year deal. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal was pending a physical and had not been announced. Mujica was 2-1 with 37 saves and a 2.78 ERA for the National League champion St. Louis Cardinals last season. Seattle officially signs Bloomquist: Utilityman Willie Bloomquist officially signed a $5.8 million, two-year contract with the Mariners, bringing him back to the team he started his major league career with. The deal was agreed to earlier this week and became official after Bloomquist passed a physical. Bloomquist said a combination of the offer Seattle made and a chance to return to the Pacific Northwest made the decision simple. Bloomquist will earn $2.8 million in 2014 and $3 million in 2015. Winfield joins union as special assistant: Hall of Famer Dave Winfield joined the Major League Baseball Players Association staff as a special assistant to new executive director Tony Clark. The 12-time All-Star was a player representative during 15 of his 22 major league seasons, hit 465 homers and was elected to the Hall on the first ballot in 2001. Baseball Hall VP Haase to retire: The senior vice president of the Baseball Hall of Fame is retiring at the end of the year. Bill Haase will wrap up a career of more than 30 years in baseball, including 13 as a top leader at the Hall of Fame. Haase also spent 18 years with the Detroit Tigers organization, eventually ending as executive vice president and chief operating officer. Rangers sign Contreras to minor deal: Jose Contreras, the Cuban right-hander who turns 42 today, has signed a minor league contract with the Texas Rangers that includes a non-roster invitation to major league spring training. Contreras spent last season with the Pittsburgh and Boston organizations. He had ligament replacement surgery on his right elbow in June 2012 and spent last spring rehabbing before making seven relief appearances for the Pirates in May.Brewers trade Aoki to RoyalsBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MLB NOTEBOOKCubs welcome Rick Renteria | GOLF SCOREBOARDPGA TourNORTHWESTERN MUTUAL WORLD CHALLENGE At Sherwood Country Club Thousand Oaks, Calif.
