A4 The Post-Crescent, Appleton-Fox Cities, Wis. Thursday, February 7, 2013 Rove Continued from Page A3 Wis., said he believes Wisconsin's conservative leaders have shown the national party the way back to win back voters the party lost in the last election. "Every time each party gets beat, they have to retool. Or they go the way of the Whigs, or the Prohibitionists," Rove said. "We need to come out with a reformed, conservative party that has ideas we advocate with a passionate authenticity. I look to governors like (Scott) Walker and congressmen like (Paul) Ryan to show us the way." On the Tea Party, Rove said the public and media have largely focused on the leadership of a small, dedicated group instead of on an underlying concern about government spending that he expects to continue to influence American politics. "The Tea Party we ought to pay attention to is the sentiment of the people who say, 'Enough is enough. We can't keep spending this way,'" Rove said. "Professional Tea Partiers will run out of steam. They can only make hay for so long. But the sentiment concerned about deficits, debt and spending is not going away." He defended the use of waterboarding and other controversial interrogation techniques based on the results they've produced and Justice Department interpretations of international laws. "If this were torture, then President Obama has a moral responsibility to go after those people. And he would have if it met the test of the law," Rove said. "This kept us safe. I can't tell you the details. But I know this: The information we got from targets kept us safe, led us to al-Qaida targets. I'm comfortable with the judgment of history on this."

Shelter needs grow in Brown County Gannett Wisconsin Media GREEN BAY In another sign of worsening homelessness in the Green Bay area, volunteers have found more people this winter living in shelters and on the streets, including one man who tried to survive a snowstorm in a tent. The Brown County Homeless & Housing Coalition reported finding 481 homeless people during a countywide canvass, which is 10 percent more than the 435 people found in the same exercise last winter. Officials said the head-count included 11 people found living on the streets up from 10 a year ago including one man who was discovered living in a tent along Baird Creek. Meika Burnikel, a member and past president of the homeless coalition, called the results a "call to action" for the community to respond to the issue of homelessness. Burnikel said she suspects that even more people went uncounted Jan. 30 because the count took place during a snowstorm, which means that some likely were riding out the storm inside 24-hour grocery stores and other places where could go undetected. From the Green Bay Press-Gazette Sentence Continued from Page A3 most fundamental basis for loyalty and family ties, ties that call for forgiveness and affection and he rationalizes and justifies killing his own mother." Matricide, or murdering one's mother, is "extremely rare," said Kathleen Heide, a criminology professor at the University of South Florida. Her most recent book "Understanding Parricide: When Sons and Daughters Kill Parents" explores the topic. Heide said 32 years of national crime statistics show that mothers killed by their children make up about 1 percent of the country's homicides. About 80 percent of matricides are committed by adult sons. "What surprises people is that most offenders are in fact adults," Heide said. Her research shows that children's motives for killing parents fall into four categories: Sons and daughters kill to end severe abuse; they have long-standing mental health issues; they are dangerously antisocial and kill for selfish rea sons; or they kill in a rage, often fueled by alcohol and drugs. Outagamie County District Attorney Carrie Schneider said the public may be able to make sense of killings of passion or heated situations, but a calculated killing of a mother for money is beyond belief. "When you say that a son shot his mom in a secluded location when he was to benefit over a half a million dollars, that is incomprehensible," Schneider said. "I think when you rate that among the varying types of homicides, it ranks as one of the most significant and serious." Dressed in a bright orange jail uniform, a crying Rosenthal, who has yet to admit to the crime, thanked his family and friends for their support and asked them to get along. "I ask you not to fight and not hold grudges against each other. Love and support each other because you will never know what will happen in life or how long we have. I love them with all of my heart," Rosenthal said. Holly Meyer: 920-993-1000, ext. 426, or hmeyer; on Twitter hollyameyer Nuclear Continued from Page A3 though it could apply to Point Beach Nuclear Plant or a new nuclear plant in the future. Point Beach has contracts to sell electricity that expire in 2030 for Unit 1 and 2033 for Unit 2 and would be ineligible for the bill's benefits until those contracts expire. "It is forward looking," Jacque said. "If we had passed this legislation five years ago, in my opinion, we wouldn't be seeing Kewaunee close." As long as natural gas prices remain at historically low levels, the trade-able resource credits created by the bill would not be enough to make nuclear competitive. Also, most Wisconsin utilities are near or have met their renewable-energy requirements. "With the current environment of inexpensive natural gas, even though well intentioned, this bill may not have much impact," said Kerry Spees, spokesman for Wisconsin Public Service Corp. "However, the current environment could change. We support the bill's efforts to create jobs." Jacque said natural gas likely will not always be so inexpensive. "There is a whole lot of uncertainty regarding fracking. It depends on what the EPA decides to do," he said. "(Natural gas) is a bubble, just like any number of bubbles can occur." Hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," is the process of drilling and injecting fluid into the ground at a high pressure to fracture shale rocks to release natural gas inside. Many environmental groups oppose fracking. The bill does not reclassify nuclear power as renewable energy. It adds an "advanced energy" category to the ways in which utilities can meet their mandated requirements. Utilities are required to have 10 percent of their electricity generated by renewable sources by 2015. Nuclear power was not included in the renewable energy standards originally, but Jacque said he's heard no objections to his proposal so far from environmental groups. The authors concede the bill is too late to keep Kewaunee open, and Jacque said that by itself it would not be enough to make a difference. "However, should Wisconsin's moratorium on new nuclear plants be lift ed or the Kewaunee nuclear plant remain operating, (the bill) would make additional investment in nuclear-generating facilities in Wisconsin particularly attractive, possibly creating over a thousand long-term, family-supporting jobs," the authors said in asking other legislators to sponsor thebiU. Kewaunee Power Station in Carlton employs about 650 people and Point Beach Nuclear Plant in Two Creeks employes about 750. Each plant adds about 500 contract workers when reactors are refueled, every 18 months for each unit. Point Beach produces 1,200 megawatts of electricity and Kewaunee about 556 megawatts. Dominion Resources has not said when the plant will cease production of electricity, but it is expected to be in April or May. Jacque said they will continue to accept co-sponsors until Tuesday, after which the bill will be introduced. A member of the Assembly energy and utilities committee, Jacque said he is confident the bill will get a hearing. Richard Ryman writes for the Green Bay Press-Gazette. MMMM Dr. Juliette Sterkens Dt.

Hearing Care for Life, I N Paid Advertisement Never Too Old to Restore Memory, Claims Creator of Medicare-Approved Brain Health Breakthrough Dr. Bresky offers new memory formula along with complimentary copy of 'Four Pillars' brain health protocol as part of national In-home trial Tired of losing your car keys? Fed up with finding yourTV remote control in the refrigerator... again? For readers concerned about mind and memory problems, the cavalry is on the way in the form of a s of t-spoken, medical doctor wielding a remarkable, patented memory compound. Dr. Arnold Bresky, MD, a Preventive Gerontologist in the field of Behavioral Neurology and graduate of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, has made it his life's calling to understanding premature mental decline, and to learning why treasured memories can simply fade away. "Memory is life," says Dr. Bresky, and it is a subject in which he is eminently qualified. Dr. Bresky is the man responsible for the legendary, Medicare-approved brain tune-up protocol, Four Pillars of Brain Health. For a limited time, a few lucky folks can test-drive Bresky's memory-boosting breakthrough, risk-free, as part of a national in-home trial. Memory doctor, Arnold Bresky, MD, used his Four Pillars brain tune-up guidelines at the California DMV to help keep safe-driving seniors on the road. 'Dramatic Memory Improvement!' First developed in 1996 to treat a handful of desperate patients in a California hospital, his nine-point scientific protocol was later approved by Medicare, and has since been used to help thousands of concerned patients, resulting in "significant, even dramatic memory improvement." "I remember names and numbers a lot better since implementing Dr. Bresky's Four Pillars program, says Dorothy c, Reseda, California. Ann H. agrees, "I always had a decent memory, but I can already see how much it's improved!" For Yolanda S. of Los Angeles, the Four Pillars guidelines kept her behind the wheel. "I was roallv worried about Arnold Bresky, MD passing my Caifornia driver's test, but Dr. Bresky's program helped me pass. I'm so happy!" Bresky's acclaimed Four Pillars protocol consists of specific mental and physical activities, regular social interaction with others, and targeted brain nutrition obtained from food, and from a miraculous natural compound that may help "make old brains feel and function younger!" It's a scientific system that helps forgetful brains snap awake. "If you can do all four, you may be on the path to a lifetime of optimal brain health and fitness," smiles Dr. Bresky. What to Feed A Hungry Brain? Dr. Bresky struggled with how best to adequately address the nutritional needs of an aging brain. In his experience, diet and food were not enough. He contacted a colleague, Dr. Gene Steiner, a well-known clinical pharmacist, whose research had led him to a clinically tested compound that had a surprisingly powerful effect on aging brains. In studies, it helped enhance memory, concentration, and even improved mood and a feeling of well being. During randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies, clinicians witnessed a startling transformation. Over a period of a few weeks, scientists observed the compound helping aging brains function more youthfully, helping match the speed, memory abilities and mental powers enjoyed by a group up to 1 5 years younger. Elizabeth K. of Rochester, New York discovered it just in time. At the age of 54, her memory was declining at an "alarming rate." She searched high and low for a solution, before she heard about Dr. Bresky's memory compound. She decided to give it a try. "It took about a Natural memory compound increases neurotransmitters in the aging brain to help restore mental quickness and alertness. vwuw r Dr. Bresky developed a Medicare-approved brain health protocol for seniors. month for the memory benefit to kick in," smiles Elizabeth. "Six months later, even my husband was impressed with my improved memory. And I am very happy with my renewed mental clarity and focus!" The natural compound was put through the analytical grinder. "It was subjected to the same rigorous FDA-approved cognitive function tests that are used in pharmaceutical drug trials - the gold standard," says Dr. Bresky. "Then, it was peer-reviewed and published in the Journal of American Nutraceutical Association. It worked so well that participants reported an improvement in memory, mental clarity, concentration, and even mood in just 30 days!" Drug Store Dilemma? For many years, pharmacy customers would ask Dr. Steiner what he would recommend for mind and memory. WI-500 1614327 "For years, I had nothing to offer them. Not until I found this natural compound was I willing to recommend anything," he says. Now, Dr. Steiner can personally attest to its memory-boosting powers. He was relocating to another state and was apprehensive about taking the state board of pharmacy jurisprudence examination, a daunting examination that tests a candidate's mastery of pharmacy law. 'There was lots of studying," says Dr. Steiner. "So, I began taking the natural compound two weeks prior to the test." "I am happy to report that, at the age of 64, 1 passed the test with flying colors! The recall I experienced was near fantastic," laughs Dr. Steiner. New Brain Cells... at Any Age!? Dr. Bresky's theory that it is medically possible to grow new brain cells at any age was validated in a groundbreaking study by Princeton University scientist, Elizabeth Gould. The Princeton study showed that neurogenesis, the growth of new brain cells, does, indeed, occur in several regions of the brain, a concept that had previously been thought impossible. This comes as welcome news to Dr. Bresky who reports that the natural memory compound has been found to stimulate brain health and cognitive sharpness several ways. "It helps increase blood flow to the brain, supplying it with more oxygen and vital nutrients," explains Dr. Bresky. Encouraging more oxygen and blood flow to the brain helps 'wake up' and recharge a tired, sluggish mind. "It's like going outside and taking a breath of invigorating fresh air on a crisp, cool day," says Dr. Bresky. He compares it to reading an eye chart at the optometrist's office, with a new pair of glasses. 'Things seem to snap into focus. Your brain feels more crisp, sharp and clear," says Dr. Bresky. A unique aspect of this compound is its ability to increase neurotransmitter levels in the brain. "Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers in the brain responsible for memory, concentration, alertness, even decision-making. They naturally get depleted with age and stress." The compound also performs long overdue spring-cleaning in the brain. Over the course of a lifetime, environmental toxins, and free radicals build up in the brain. Brain-specific, broad-spectrum antioxidants found naturally in the compound help fight neurotoxins. If you are concerned about your failing memory, and your inability to stay focused and mentally alert, Dr. Arnold Bresky offers some free medical advice. "Don't miss out on the best years of your life. If you don't take steps to address your mental decline, your future may be quite bleak. As a medical doctor who specializes in memory problems, I urge you to take action today to ensure a healthier, more joyful tomorrow remaining free to make decisions for yourself!"
