LIVE LIKE A TOURIST

Visit a national

treasure
I first heard about the J.N. "Ding"
Darling National Wildlife Refuge
during the closing nature segment
on the "CBS Sunday Morning" show.
You know this
segment. This is
the one in which
6 Charles Osgood
says, "We now leave
you at... (some
Beautiful, amazing
Ur place where there's
water rippling, birds
S, chirping and deer
Chrs looking surprised
Crs -)because that's how
FEINBERG deer look)." Then
COLUMNIST you get off your
couch and think,
"That looks cool. I should go there
sometime."
And then you don't.
And then the years pass.
Finally, I got off the couch and made
it to Ding Darling on Sanibel Island.
Now I know why CBS profiled the
wildlife refuge. It's beautiful. But it's
more than that. It's a sliver of land
in this great big world we actually
protected from ourselves.
The J.N. "Ding" Darling National
Wildlife Refuge is the largest wildlife
refuge in a complex that totals about
8,000 acres in Southwest Florida.
According to park information, Ding
Darling is the home to:
30-plus kinds of mammals.
102 species offish.
14 threatened or endangered ani-
mals, some of which include eastern
indigo snakes, American crocodiles,
alligators, wood storks, manatees,
several kinds of sea turtles, smalltooth
sawfish and piping plovers.
272 species of birds.
60 kinds of reptiles and amphibi-
ans (for the record, I only saw turtles
and alligators ... thank goodness).
More than 750,000 people visit Ding
Darling each year, such as Eileen and
Ed Michaels of Columbia, S.C. They
chose to spend the last day of their
recent Sanibel Island vacation at Ding
Darling.
"It's very well done," Eileen said.
The wildlife refuge's main attraction
is Wildlife Drive, a recently paved,
four-mile path that can be viewed by
foot, bicycle or vehicle.
"We thoroughly enjoyed it," said
John and Denise Luck of Poole,
England. "Absolutely brilliant."
You will be provided a map that
highlights certain areas of the drive,
such as the Calusa Shell Mound Trail
along with good places for bird/wild-
life watching. The great thing about
the drive is that you can stop any-
where along the way. Simply pull your
vehicle to the right, park and get out of
the car. The Wildlife Drive is one way
for vehicles and bicycles so don't try
turning around or driving in reverse.
Planning note: Do not go on Fridays.
The Wildlife Drive is closed this one
day of the week for maintenance,
research, etc.
AlongWildlife Drive, expect to see
many species of birds, especially at
low tide. It's truly a bird-watcher's
paradise.
Ding Darling's website includes an
"eBird Trail Tracker," which provides

Dr. Beach on the water


Expert tours area, extols waterfront living


SUN PHOTO BY BRENDA BARBOSA
World-renowned researcher and beach expert Stephen Leatherman, aka "Dr. Beach";' has spent the
last few days touring Charlotte County beaches and waterways filming a promotional video and a
pilot episode for a television program on waterfront real estate. He is joined by Emmy-award-win-
ning producer-photographer Russ Weston, who has worked on programs like National Geographic's
"Extreme Alaska."


By BRENDA BARBOSA
STAFF WRITER
When Stephen Leatherman, aka
"Dr. Beach," visits beaches across
the country to compile his yearly
list of America's Top 10 beaches,
he usually likes to fly under the
radar, quietly dodging the press
until after his popular ratings are
published.
This week, though, the
world-renowned beach expert
broke from his usual protocol
to speak to local reporters as he
toured up and down Charlotte
County's beaches and waterways,
extolling the area's pristine
waterfront.
Leatherman was in town this
week filming a television episode
for a pilot program on waterfront
living, as well as a three-minute
promotional video highlighting
Englewood beaches, Punta Gorda
and the barrier islands, including
Don Pedro and Knight islands.
"Normally when I come to an
area, I am doing ratings of beach-
es, and I don't usually meet with
the media until after I've done the
ratings because I don't want to
get the red-carpet treatment," he
said. "This is very different."
And when it comes to wa-
terfront living, different can be
better.
"I thought it would be nice to
go to a place that is a little less
known but of high quality, and
Charlotte County came up," he
said.
Unlike most coastal communi-
ties, Charlotte County offers the
best of both worlds miles of
"Old Florida" beachfront and a
harbor teeming with world-class
fishing and boating.
"You have a beautiful envi-
ronment here with the harbor,"
Leatherman said. "It's more laid
back here, more easygoing and
more friendly.
"Your beaches are more remote

Historical Center in need of rehab


By GARY ROBERTS
STAFF WRITER

MURDOCK The building that
houses the Charlotte County Historical
Center, charged with preserving and
presenting the area's historical past,
may itself soon be lost to history.
At Tuesday's County Commission
workshop session, commissioners
discussed both the structural and re-
lated financial problems of the History
Center, which is deteriorating at a rapid
pace due to its proximity to Charlotte
Harbor.


However, some commissioners
balked at the estimated $700,000 price
tag to restore the facility.
"The building is falling apart,"
Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch
said. "As a business decision, much
as I love the location, it doesn't seem
to make any sense to me to throw
any more money into that building.
... and it's only going to continue to
deteriorate."
Basically, the alternatives being
considered include fixing up the
Historical Center or moving operations
to another site.


Repairing the facility would allow it
to continue its mission on Bayshore
Drive, providing a place to store
artifacts and provide educational pro-
gramming and exhibits to the public.
An extensive and costly renovation
would be required, though.
The Historical Center originally
operated as a private youth museum
in Punta Gorda before the county
purchased its current site in 2002 for
the relatively modest sum of $570,000,
including $300,000 in grant money.
The facility, built in 1984 and raised

Man killed in early morning bicycle wreck


By ADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER

SOUTH OF PUNTA GORDA-A
24-year-old Port Charlotte man was
killed early Tuesday after his bicycle
collided with a pickup on U.S. 41,
according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Angel Hoyt was pronounced dead at
the scene. The incident occurred shortly
after 6 a.m.
Hoyt was riding his motorized
Huffy bike northbound on U.S. 41. He
attempted to turn left onto St. Pierre
Road, the report shows, "causing the
front end of the bicycle driven by (Hoyt)
to strike the left side of (the truck)."


The driver of the Ford pickup -
Nicole Lee Prestipino, 33, of Port
Charlotte was not injured. Charges
will not be filed, authori-
ties said.
Hoyt worked mornings
at Dr. Goodroof- a
roofing company located
near the crash scene.
Employees declined
comment to the Sun, but
HOYT the owner told WINK Hoyt
was a good employee.
Hoyt also worked at Whiskey Creek
Wood Fire Grill in Port Charlotte,
picking up night shifts as a line cook
after his day job was finished. He had


been there about three months.
"He just got that bike so he could get
to work," said assistant manager Rich
Carmean. "He was a real good kid and
a hard worker. He was really trying to
turn his life around."
According to the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement, Hoyt was one
of 14 registered sexual predators in
Charlotte County. He was released
Sept. 9 from Taylor Correctional
Institution in Perry, Fla. He had been
sentenced to seven years in prison
in 2007 for lewd or lascivious sexual
battery on a victim between 12 and

you see our little ads
every day, but for almost
two decades we've really
concentrated on the
holiday shopping.

Korean war veterans speak at SCF


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

SOUTH VENICE-
Tom "Skip" Hannon
said he was "completely
ill-informed" about the
Korean War when he was
sent overseas in the early
1950s.
Hannon, Walter
"Scotty" Blomeley and
Richard A. Caverly,
members of the Korean
War Veterans Association
Manasota Chapter 199,
spoke at State College
of Florida's SouthVenice
campus Tuesday to help
educate people about the
"forgotten conflict."
SCF's History/Political
Science Club played host
to the event, as part of
the KWVA's "Tell America
Program."
Hannon told the more
than 60 in attendance -
a blend of SCF students
and adults, some of
whom were also Korean
War veterans gathered
in the Selby Room that
the trio had "about 100
stories" they probably
could share from their
time spent fighting
overseas.
Hannon, who was
drafted into the Army
and served in Korea from
April 1952 until May
1953, gave a brief history
of the cause of the con-
flict there, and noted this
past July 27 marked the
60th anniversary of the
armistice that brought
armed fighting to a halt.
"The Korean War start-
ed less than four years
after the end of World
War II, and people were
weary of war," he said.
"It was originally called
a police action, then a
conflict."
Hannon added that
former President Bill
Clinton eventually
authorized it to be
called a war, albeit an
undeclared one in which
36,547 Americans died
and more than 104,000
were wounded. The war
was waged between
communist North Korea
and South Korea, with
American troops enter-
ing the conflict on South
Korea's behalf.
Caverly said he was
fresh out of high school
and had never even
heard of Korea when he
was shipped overseas
after a year of training
with the Marine Corps.
He shared how, as a
company runner, he
was taking a message
to another officer when
he barely avoided being
shot, but couldn't avoid
being captured by enemy
forces.
"I tripped and fell in
the kitchen area, and
that was about the time
the shooting started.
All those guys," he said,
mentioning several of
the five in the building
by name, "were killed
but they shot right over
the top of me.... The
Chinese were right on us,

Caverly, along with

Kapaun a posthumous

Local survey: Student alcohol use down


By ADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER
It's becoming less pop-
ular for local high school
students to drink alcohol,
according to new data.
A recent survey con-
ducted by Drug Free
Charlotte County shows
only 31 percent of local
high school students
drink alcohol. That is the
lowest percentage in the
coalition's 13-year history.
"We are so pleased with
the finding," Executive
Director Diane Ramseyer


said. "It shows the hard
work of the coalition and
the community is really
paying off. We need to
keep it coming."
Drug Free Charlotte
County an organiza-
tion dedicated to drug
prevention in the area
- was founded in 2000.
The group has sponsored
a survey, conducted
by Northern Illinois
University, at the begin-
ning of every school year
since 2006.
Every middle school
and high school student


in Charlotte County
was asked in August to
take the anonymous
122-question survey,
which asks about recent
drug and alcohol use and
perception.
This year, the survey
shows drug and alcohol
use is down in both
middle and high school
students in the county.
Results were unveiled
Tuesday before more than
two dozen community
figures at the Charlotte
County Public Schools
administration building

in Murdock.
"I'm thrilled at the
data," school superinten-
dent Doug Whittaker said.
"It's a good trend to see.
This is a strong message
for the community."
School Board member
Lee Swift echoed those
statements.
"It points out the good
things our kids are trying
to do," he said. "(The
survey) flies against
the stereotypes that are
out there. It shows the
reality."
In addition to students
being asked to answer
questions about sub-
stance use, they also
answer questions about
what they think their
peers are doing. One
of the major takeaways
from the recent survey is
that perception is much
greater than reality.
"Kids are naive," said


David Sonne L.A.
Ainger Middle School's
school resource officer
- during a discussion
session Tuesday. "I fight
it every day. Kids will
believe anything they
hear."
The 2013 survey results
show high school stu-
dents believe 80 percent
of their peers drink
alcohol. Only 31 percent
actually do.
"The real work for us
is getting these numbers
to the students," DFCC
spokeswoman Chrissie
Salazar said. "It's all about
peer pressure. We have to
show them the reality."
Alcohol use has
dropped at the high
school level every year
since the survey began
seven years ago.
At the middle school
level, 10 percent of
students admitted to


drinking alcohol within
the last 30 days. Data
shows those students
believe 43 percent of their
peers are drinking.
A quarter of high school
students admitted to
smoking marijuana the
lowest amount since
2008. Only 7 percent of
middle-schoolers said
they smoked pot.
At all levels, tobacco
use and the use of
synthetic drugs also are
down.
This is the first year the
survey asked about pre-
scription drugs. Twelve
percent of high school
students have used them
for nonmedical purposes,
per the data.
Ramseyer said NIU
tosses out about 10 per-
cent of the surveys each
year due to suspected
dishonesty.

Volunteers


needed for


homeless programs


ichael Over-
way came to
the Englewood
Chamber of Commerce
to paint a picture. But
he didn't use a brush to
create the picture he
used words.
The Charlotte County
Homeless Coalition
administrator told the
audience people are
wrong when they picture
"the homeless" as scruffy
old guys with a drinking
problem.
"Only 18 percent of the
homeless are what we
call hard-core. The rest
are people who lost jobs
or fell on hard times for
other reasons," he said.
"And often, it's parents
with children."
In one day alone,
Overway said 1,000
homeless people were
counted. He talked about
families sleeping in cars
and students "going
from couch to couch, or
wherever they can sleep
for the night."
"I'm not one who gets
emotional, but it really
grabbed me when a
13-year-old girl came to
us and said she was hap-
py to be at our homeless
shelter because it was the
best place she's been to
in the last few months,"
he said.
While the bad news is
the growing number of
homeless people, there
is good news, too, in the
progress being done to
help them.
"We have so many
programs in place that
weren't here before. Our
problem is getting the
word out to those who
need the services," he
said.
One program he cited
as doing "amazing work"
is the New Paradigm
Foundation run by
Kathleen and David
Nelson.
One important role of
the foundation is providing
affordable transitional
housing to those at risk of
becoming homeless. While
the program has been
doing that for years, most
people don't even know we
have transitional housing
in the county, he noted.
"This program isn't
about handouts," he said,
"It's about giving a hand
up to help families get
back on their feet."
Kathleen Nelson told
the audience there are 14
units of housing available.
"But it's about more
than putting a roof over
someone's head. It's about
giving them counsel-
ing, parenting classes,
financial classes and the
mentoring they need to
succeed," she explained.


Paltie
Mihalik



"We're asking agencies
and churches to call us if
they have someone who
could benefit from the
program," she said. "We
need to get the word out
that we are here to help
those with a firm com-
mitment to succeed."
While both the
Homeless Coalition and
New Paradigm benefit
from financial contribu-
tions, both have another
need that has nothing to
do with giving money.
"We need people
to give of their time
and their talent," said
Overway. "The more
people who volunteer
to do that, the more we
can offer services and
programs to help the
homeless."
Kathleen Nelson
echoed his thoughts,
saying volunteers are
desperately needed.
She said there are
retired teachers and
social workers that could
greatly help by mentoring
families and working with
the children.
"We need mentors to
help families make better
decisions and we have
children in need of help
with their schoolwork. A
support person can make
all the difference in the
world," she added.
At the homeless coali-
tion, there are 25 children
in need of that help
and only one volunteer
teacher, Overway said.
The need for volunteers
also includes craftsmen,
office workers and those
with special skills such as
artists, writers, auction-
eers and chefs.
"If someone who can
paint or do simple repairs
could give us one day
a month, it would help
tremendously," Nelson
added. "Someone who
can fix a toilet or clean a
carpet would be greatly
appreciated."
To volunteer or for
more information, New
Paradigm Foundation
in Englewood can be
reached at 941-681-2194
while the Charlotte
County Homeless
Coalition in Port
Charlotte can be reached
at 941-627-4313.

Culver's grand opening postponed


By BRENDA BARBOSA
STAFF WRITER

PORT CHARLOTTE -
It was a day a lot of people
had been waiting for -
and, unfortunately, one
that didn't come to pass.
If you were one of the
throngs of people eagerly
awaiting the opening of


the new Culver's of Port
Charlotte, you'll have to
wait a little longer.
According to franchise
owner Steve Buchmeier,
the restaurant's
grand-opening date has
been pushed to Dec. 9.
The new restaurant will
be located at 385 Kings
Highway. The restaurant's


opening originally had
been slated for Monday
- Nov. 18.
Culver's, the fast-grow-
ing Midwest restaurant
chain popular for its
ButterBurgers and
fresh-frozen custards, will
feature a drive-through
window and an outdoor
patio eating area. It will


accommodate about 100
guests, and will employ
between 50 to 70 full- and
part-time workers. Hours
of operation are 10 a.m.
to 10 p.m., seven days a
week.
In April, the Charlotte
County Commission
unanimously approved
a final detail plan


resolution to allow the
franchise owner to move
ahead on a proposal to
construct a 4,061-square-
foot building on a 1-acre
out-parcel in the Walmart
shopping center.
Culver's of Port
Charlotte is one of three
stores in Florida to
open this year. Culver's


currently has more
than 470 independently
owned and operated
restaurants in 20 states.
Florida would be the
chain's 21st.
For more information,
call 941-979-6261, or visit
the company's website at

Local Filipino doctors to host fundraiser


PROVIDED BY OFFICE
OF DR. MARK ASPERILLA

Dr. Mark Asperilla, Dr.
Gerardo Garcia, Dr. Samuel
Estepa, Dr. Lourdes Tadalan,
Dr. Rhona Holganza and
Dr. Franzuel Pamittam,
in conjunction with the
Charlotte County Medical
Society Foundation and the
Filipino-American Society of
Charlotte County, will host
a fundraiser Saturday from
6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The location of the event
will be provided when res-
ervations are made. Filipino


food as well as American food
will be provided along with
beverages. The purpose of
the fundraiser will be to raise
the necessary funds needed
for a medical mission trip
from Charlotte County to
the hardest-hit areas of the
Philippines, mainly Tacloban.
Asperilla will speak about
his personal experience of
being in the Philippines
when Typhoon Haiyan hit.
Local physicians will be
providing the entertainment,
and silent auction items will
be available for those attend-
ees wanting to bid.


According to the United
Nations, Typhoon Haiyan
killed at least 4,200 people
when it tore through the
Philippines with sustained
winds of 195 mph and
tsunami-like storm surges
Nov. 8. Thirteen million
people have been affected
in some way by the storm,
which includes 4 million
who have been displaced.
At present, more than 1,580
people are missing. More
than a million houses have
been damaged.
Asperilla, a native of the
Philippines, will be returning


to his homeland in January
to assess the medical needs
of the hardest-hit areas with
the goal of setting up a long-
term medical clinic.
"My family is safe, but my
country is destroyed. The
storm has long since passed,
but the medical and human-
itarian situation is constantly
evolving," he said. "Post-
disaster conditions create the
perfect environment for the
spread of disease, especially
with a displaced population.
"The degree of crowd-
ing, the lack of available
safe drinking water and


sanitation facilities, and the
lack of available health care
services, all contribute to the
risk of disease and death."
The event is open to the
public, but reservations are
required. Please call the
Charlotte County Medical
Society for reservations
at 941-625-6229. Anyone
wishing to support this
lifesaving mission can send
a check to Charlotte County
Medical Society Foundation/
Philippines Medical Mission,
P.O. Box 494144, Port
Charlotte, FL 33949.


Special delivery: Post office gains national recognition


By BARBARA

SUN CORRESPONDENT
PUNTA GORDA-
When the U.S. Postal
Service challenged its
offices nationwide to
see which ones could
sell the most breast
cancer stamps during
October Breast
Cancer Awareness
Month the Punta
Gorda post office
stamped its way into
history.
By the end of the
month, the office on
East Marion Avenue
had sold $30,810 worth
of the stamps, placing
it first in the local
Suncoast District of
346 offices, and third in
the nation out of over
31,000 post offices.
"I challenged our
three local branch-
es Murdock, Port
Charlotte and Punta
Gorda that I'd
cater lunch for the one
that sold the most,"
said Punta Gorda
Postmaster Steven
Bernier. He also gave
awards to the Punta
Gorda window clerks
who sold the stamps:
John Eastman, Miriam

Lisa Gaylord and Pam
Long led the effort.
"The community
was a big part of this,
too," said Bernier. "We
couldn't have sold so
many stamps without


jam-packed."
Leatherman was
joined by Emmy-award-
winning producer-pho-
tographer Russ Weston,
who was directing the
film crew.
Weston, who recently
was on assignment in St.
Louis, Mo., covering the
World Series, has worked
on television shows like
the Discovery Channel's

rating foundation, floors,
roof and pilings; corrod-
ing steel trusses; missing
structural support in

and copper piping need-
ing replacement; lack
of a climatized control
system; and restrooms
that fail to meet disability
standards.
Commissioner Bill
Truex said the structural
problems and related
financial costs may

The Port Charlotte
branch sold $4,512
worth of breast cancer
stamps, while the
Murdock branch sold
$3,577.

National Geographic's
"Extreme Alaska."
"This has been a neat
community to work in,"
Weston said of Charlotte
County. "It's been a lot
of fun."
The crew spent the
day on Monday filming
in Englewood and
the barrier islands.
Tuesday, they spent the

exceed projections.
"It's always more than
you think," he said.
Another major con-
sideration is that the
location, vulnerable to
the damaging effects of
salt water and flooding,
is just not conducive
to storing irreplaceable
historical archives.
If the county decides to
move operations and sell
the valuable waterfront
property, likely yielding
a good return on the


cancer awareness
stamp sheet, $1.80
goes to breast cancer
research. Clerks asked
every customer if they
wanted to buy the
stamps. If they agreed,
they were given a


day touring Charlotte
Harbor; and today, they
will spend it on the
Peace River.
In June, the Charlotte

proved a $79,000 budget

In a proposal submitted
Nov. 11, Gene Murtha,
president of the Punta

suggested that the former

to both the Charlotte
County and Punta Gorda
history centers.

space to put a name
on. The ribbons were
then displayed on the

After learning that
they'd placed third
in the nation, the
Punta Gorda post
office staff wanted
to let the community
know. Employee Trina
Coleman and her
husband, Eugene,
who is a carrier in
Fort Myers, made
6-foot-tall wooden,
ribbon-shaped sculp-
tures, which Bernier
then covered with the
paper ribbons mem-
bers of the community
completed when they
purchased the stamps.
He displayed the
wooden sculptures on
two pillars flanking the
post office's entrance
in honor of their win.
The Breast Cancer
Awareness stamp was
introduced in 1998 in a
bill sponsored by sen-
ators Diane Feinstein,
Alfonse D'Amato and
Lauch Faircloth. It was
the first semipostall"
stamp, meaning it is a
legal postage stamp,
but a portion of the
price of the stamp is
used for fundraising for
breast cancer research.

after it is renovated,"
Murtha said.
Furthermore, he

Breast cancer is the
second-largest cause
of cancer deaths in
women, after lung
cancer. The American
Cancer Society esti-
mates that near 300,000
new cases of breast
cancer will have been
diagnosed in 2013, and
of those cases, 39,620
will die from breast
cancer. Although breast
cancer is 100 times less
common in men, it's
estimated that 2,240
men will be diagnosed
with breast cancer in
2013, and 410 of those
will die from the dis-
ease. As of September
2012, over $76 million
has been raised for
research through sales
of the stamp. Funds
raised are split between
the National Institutes
of Health and the
Department of Defense,
both of which have
research programs for
breast cancer.
This year, postal
clerks sold $2.6 million
nationally in breast
cancer stamps in the
month of October. Of
that amount, $134,779
went to fund research.

Report: Man threatens


teen via texts, social media


NORTH PORT- A
22-year-old Port Charlotte
man was charged
Monday with stalking
a 17-year-old girl after
allegedly harassing and
threatening her for
months, according to
the North Port Police
Department.
Joshua James McCurdy,
of the 4100 block of
Worcester Avenue who
additionally was charged

McCurdy had been

phone and social media.
McCurdy used derogatory

victim, the report states,

told police that McCurdy
would hang around
adjacent properties
waiting for the arrival and
departure of the victim

'Gun' scare at mall



leads to school lockdown


By ADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER

MURDOCK Schools
near the Port Charlotte
Town Center mall were
locked down Tuesday
morning after a report
of a man seen carrying
what appeared to be
a gun in the mall. But
appearances, in this case,
led to a far less dangerous
conclusion.
The "gun" witnesses
spotted was, in fact, a
folded waiter's apron, a
Charlotte County Sheriff's
report later confirmed.
Deputies responded
to the mall around
11:15 a.m., but were
unable to confirm the
report of "a man carry-
ing a handgun out of a
holster" around the area


ofJ.C. Penney, according
to CCSO spokeswoman
Debbie Bowe.
Authorities were there
for about 45 minutes
reviewing tape and
searching the area.
"We basically locked it
down," Bowe said.
The scene was cleared
shortly before noon.
Just down the street
from the mall located
at 1441 Tamiami Trail
- Port Charlotte High
School and Charlotte
Technical Center were on
lockdown temporarily.
"We don't take any
chances when it comes
to the safety of our kids,"
Charlotte County Public
Schools spokesman Mike
Riley said.
A Town Center rep-
resentative said mall


officials take threats of
guns very seriously.
"Possession of any
weapon at our malls,
whether concealed or
displayed openly, is in
violation of mall policy,"
spokeswoman Erica
Gutierrez said. "As always,
we encourage shoppers
to be alert to what is
happening around them,
and to immediately
report suspicious activity
to mall security or a store
employee."
Thankfully, this time
those suspicions turned
out to be nothing more
sinister than a masquer-
ading uniform piece.
And, at the end of the
day, the Sheriff's Office
was able to declare: "The
case has been closed."
Or is that, clothed?

I OUR VIEW


Property sale puts

parcel back on rolls

OUR POSITION: City property
sale passes its eye test.
he Punta Gorda City
Council vote to sell a city-
owned parcel on Nesbit
Street to a Punta Gorda busi-
nessman raised some eyebrows
not because of the size of the
sale or the purchase price, but
because of the relationship
between the buyer and the city's
new mayor. "Was there more
than meets the eye?" inquiring
minds wanted to know.
On Nov. 6, the council voted
4-0 to accept an offer from Klint
Keesling of Keesling Construction
for the site that formerly housed
the city's recycling center and other
city functions that have since been
moved to a new facility. Keesling's
wife, Rachel, has served on the
council since 2010 and was elected
mayor by her fellow council mem-
bers at the same meeting.
After reviewing the council
discussion, eyeballing property
appraiser documents (including
nearby parcels) and discussing
the sale with City Manager
Howard Kunik, we're comfort-
able stating that all parties
involved, including Mayor
Keesling acted appropriately.
The mayor recused herself from
the vote for obvious reasons and
any suggestion her husband got
a sweetheart deal because of
their marital status strikes us as
unfounded and unfair.
Fair questions, though, would
be why sell now and was the
price right? Again, the discussion
and documentation lead us to
say, "Aye." Here's why.
When the sale closes, which is
expected after a 90-day environ-
mental look-see is completed,
the city will receive $142,500 for
a property that was appraised at
$133,780. The site was appraised
at $131,802 and $133,755 in 2012
and 2011, respectively. Not long
ago the site was worth more than
$195,000 (in 2008 and 2009), but
that was in the years following
the real estate bust, which had
boosted its value to $370,566
in 2007 and $366,890 in 2006.
Nobody can reasonably expect
the property's value to return
to such eye-raising 2006-2007
levels, although it is possible the
city could have gotten a higher
price years from now it if held
onto the property. The coun-
terpoint to that view is that the
city didn't even get competing
bidders even at the $142,500
price, though Keesling and the
city did trade counteroffers
before arriving at that price.
The value of the city property
is comparable to nearby par-
cels of similar size, including
a petroluem business and a
landscaping business. The main
difference is that the land im-
provements and building values
on the city parcel are negligible;
the building on the city site was
valued at only $8,800. All the
sites above are along a stretch of
industrialized properties east of
U.S. 41 between East Charlotte
Avenue and the railroad.
This was not a fire sale for
budgetary reasons, either. City
Manager Howard Kunik said the
proceeds of the sale will not be
used to bridge any budget shortfall.
"These are one-time revenues
and can be put toward one-time
expenses, to be determined at a
later date," Kunik said. "One should
not use one-time revenues to shore
up a projected budgetary gap since
those same revenues will not be
available in another year."
Klint Keesling, who owns a
smaller parcel on Nesbit, south
of the city property, hasn't said
what he plans to do with the new
site, which would be returned to
the tax rolls sometime next year.
That's a good thing.
We suspect nobody would
have batted an eye at this trans-
action if not for the Keesling
connection. But given that con-
nection, it's reasonable for some


to express concern about its
appropriateness. We're satisfied
there's no cause to look at the
deal with a jaundiced eyed.

I THE EDITOR

Repeal Obamacare,
impeach Obama

Editor:
I believe that everyone
should take a moment to
stand up and applaud Hillary
Clinton for being the Paul
Revere in 2008 during her bid
for the nomination of her par-
ty when she stated, "Shame
on you, Barack Obama, for
lying" about her. However, it
was too late as the Obama-
Zombiecrats were already
infected with this man's lies.
His policies have been
dismal failures at best. He
has squandered more money
than all past presidents put
together. Remember when
he said Bush was unpatriotic
for allowing the deficit to
grow to $10 trillion after eight
years? So what does that make
Obama by his own definition
($17 trillion after five years)?
Zombiecrats claim that
Republicans don't offer up
solutions is another big lie.
Remember when Obama
told the Republicans to go to
the back of the bus, we don't
need your input? And after
the Republicans took control
of the House every measure
passed in the House was
never brought to the Senate
floor by Harry Reid.
Last week 16 Senate
Zombiecrats stormed the
White House unannounced
and held an unscheduled
meeting with Obama. Next
day, Obama is offering up
a half-hearted apology for
his lie. And on the following
Friday 39 Zombiecrats in the
House joined Republicans
to make Obama keep his
promise.
The cure for Zombiecrats
is repeal Obamacare and
impeach this man for fraud
(unlawful to sell products
based on lies). Thank you,
Hillary, for the warning.

VIEWPOINT


prices, less choice and poor
service. A limited choice
of insurance policies that
contain services one may
not need or want. Prices
are higher because of these
services. A lack of choice
comes along with this, for
example maternity benefits
for 50-year-olds or substance
abuse treatment for every-
one. There is a lack of choice
for the doctor you want to
treat you or the hospital
you want. Almost 4 million
insurance policies have been
canceled because they do
not meet the standards set
by the administration with
much more to come next
year and 1,000 doctors have
been dropped so far. The ad-
ministrators say they know
what is best for you and your
family, what you think does
not matter. This all is a result
of granting the government a
monopoly on health insur-
ance. It will get worse.

Government monopoly
on health insurance

Editor:
We have a new health
insurance market, Healthcare.
gov. Looking up "market" in
Wikipedia you will find that
"market" means a place where
many buyers and many sellers
engage in the exchange of
goods and services and is the
process by which the prices and
content of goods and services
are established. An example of
an imperfect market is where
there is one seller and many
buyers; it is called a monopoly
and under most conditions this
is illegal. A monopoly results in
higher prices, less choice and
poor service.
Obamacare is establishing
a government monopoly for
health insurance. Already we
are seeing the results: higher

Follow the events: Sept. 18:
"Duffy faces ethics charges"
- the Sun describes "tea party
sympathizer and a ... sewer
opponent." Why not Americans,
concerned citizens, or men
under 6 feet tall? Duffy asked
the county to pay her legal fees,
calling the accusers destruc-
tive. The Sun concurred.
Sept. 24: Commission OKs
Duffy's legal fees with $508,000
assets. Doherty probed Duffy
asking, "Is it your intent ... to
recoup ...?" Duffy said yes, it is
her duty.
Nov. 1: "Ethics board clears
Duffy" Duffy says, "I'm hap-
py... false charges behind me."
The Sun failed to report the
significant parts of the Ethics
Committee's statement. Duffy
repeats her pursuit to recover
legal fees. The scare tactics and
threats of Duffy and the Sun
are their efforts to repress our
Constitutional rights.
Nov. 13: "Bearing false wit-
ness used to be a bad thing" -
The Sun now libelously implies
that Herriman and Kesselring
are liars and states they "should
[sic] foot the bill" which was
less than 1 percent of Duffy's
assets.
The problem? The Sun gives
front page power and support
to the government, printing
four pieces about recouping
legal fees from complainants.
These men should be ap-
plauded for their courage and
are owed public apologies. This
smacks of government and
press intimidation of honest
citizens who dare to question
our politicians. This is an ex-
ample of why Americans have
come to hate both government
officials and journalists.

Council mulls All-America City application


At its Nov. 6 meet-
ing, City Council
discussed the
possibility of the city
sending a letter of intent
to apply for the 2014
All-America City Award.
Council Member Kim
Devine took the lead in
this potential effort.
This award recognizes
10 communities annual-
ly for outstanding civic
impact and action plan-
ning. This year's spot-
light is on healthy com-
munities that include
programs for the promo-
tion of walking, biking,
moving, anti-obesity,
youth and adult pro-
grams, healthy eating,
play, health promotion
and disease prevention,
among others. Awards
criteria are civic engage-
ment and collaboration;
inclusiveness and diver-
sity; innovation; and im-
pact. The applicant must
identify and describe
three community-driv-
en projects that have
resulted in significant
local impact and action
planning within the past
five years.
Before the city makes
a decision on whether


to apply for the award,
three projects need to
be identified. We are
requesting assistance
from the community
to provide us with such
viable projects. Please
email your suggestions
to kdevine@pgorda.us or
hkunik@pgorda.us in the
following two weeks.

Annexation
update
Staff met with repre-
sentatives of the Loop
property to review a
voluntary annexation
agreement and time
frame for ordinances and
public hearings. Staff
awaits final informa-
tion from the property
owner in order to place
it on a council agenda,
earmarked for Dec. 18 if
received in time.
Staff met to review and


update the 2006 annex-
ation criteria, scoring
matrix and area ranking.
A revised report will be
forthcoming to council,
in conjunction with the
Loop annexation.

Council agenda
At today's meeting,
City Council will discuss
the following items:
Construction con-
tract for Downtown
Flooding Mitigation
Phase 2 which will
relieve flood issues in
the Charlotte Regional
Medical Center and
Harvey/Durrance neigh-
borhoods. This project
is funded 75 percent by
FEMA.
Final recommenda-
tion of energy savings
project from ConEdison.
The recommendations
call for lighting im-
provements that will
cost $725,131 and result
in $59,391 in annual
savings with a payback
of 12.2 years.
Process to identify
city projects for the
upcoming infrastructure
sales surtax referen-
dum. Six years ago the


city used a committee
consisting of represen-
tatives from residential
and commercial neigh-
borhoods to recommend
projects for Council
consideration.
Identification of
topics for the next joint
meeting of City Council
and Charlotte County
Commission scheduled
for the latter part of
January 2014.
Consider a resolution
granting an occupation
of easement that will
pave the way for rede-
velopment of the Pierce
building at U.S. 41 and
McKenzie.

Sanitation
Large amounts of yard
waste and oversized
branches, stumps, etc.,
require collection by
a specialized vehicle
and cannot be picked
up along with normal
yard waste. Residents
must call public works
by close of business
Monday to have a
special yard waste col-
lection scheduled for the
coming week. Typically,
such collections are


done on Tuesdays or
Wednesday.

Seawall update
Update on seawall
damage from September
rain event:
47 locations, 46 in
Punta Gorda Isles and
one in Burnt Store Isles
(affecting 86 lots total).
2,928 feet of seawall
damaged from the storm
event; 5,346 feet will be
replaced (583 feet at 13
undeveloped lots and
4,763 feet at 73 devel-
oped lots).
Marine Contracting
Group has installed
1,410 feet of seawall (26
percent) and 1,448 feet
of cap.
The BSI Canal
Advisory Committee
held their monthly
meeting on Nov. 12 and
once again the meeting
was well-attended by the
BSI community. There
was much discussion
and interaction between
the committee and
citizens regarding the
removal of the pilings
at the boat lock, as well
as discussion regard-
ing the possibility of


widening and further
dredging of the perimeter
canal. City staff has been
requested to meet with
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
to obtain additional infor-
mation on the require-
ments for widening the
perimeter canal.
Another topic of
discussion was the
development of a survey
to be sent to residents
who are in the BSI Canal
Assessment District. The
survey is in its infancy
and will be discussed
further by the com-
mittee. Questions that
were discussed that may
appear on the survey
are: removal of the
pilings at the boat lock,
widening of the pe-
rimeter canal and fund
reserves. The BSI Canal
Advisory Committee has
not made any decisions
on the aforementioned
topics; additional
research and discussions
will continue to take
place.

Stump Pass long-term management plan


tump Pass is an
inlet that separates
Manasota Key and
the State Park Beach on
the north side and Palm-
Knight-Don Pedro Islands
to the south. In July 2003,
Charlotte County com-
pleted construction of
the first erosion control
project, restoring three
critically eroding beach
segments along Mana-
sota Key, Palm Island,
Knight Island and Don
Pedro Island. In 2006 and
2011, Charlotte County
completed maintenance
of the project to offset
the erosion losses from
storms and hurricanes
as well as background
erosion.
In order to address fu-
ture beach and inlet man-
agement needs, Charlotte
County embarked on the
next 10-year management
plan for Stump Pass and
the adjacent beaches.
As part of this plan,
Charlotte County is in
the process of submitting
the necessary documents
to conduct an erosion
mitigation and habitat
conservation project that
will place beach compat-
ible fill, from both inlet
and offshore sand sourc-
es, along erosion-dam-
aged shorelines including
critical sea turtle and
shorebird habitats. An
erosion control structure
will be integrated with
the fill to improve project
performance. Three
historically eroding sites,

including Knight Island,
Don Pedro Island, and
Stump Pass Beach State
Park located on Manasota
Key, will be addressed.
The primary purpose
of this project is to
restore storm protection
to upland development
and restore and conserve
natural resource habitats
and recreational beach
areas. The beach fill areas
include approximately
three miles of critically
eroding shoreline on
Knight and Don Pedro
islands (along the north
and south beach areas)
and approximately
1.5 miles of critically
eroding shoreline along
the updrift project area
at Stump Pass Beach
State Park. An additional
benefit of the project
is to restore the storm
and erosion-impacted
navigational channel
through Stump Pass.
Navigational aids within
the Stump Pass channel,
including channel mark-
ers and buoys, shall be
maintained to mark the
navigational channel.
To achieve the goals of
enhancing project perfor-
mance, extending project
life, and increasing the
interval between mainte-
nance-dredging events,
Charlotte County has
undertaken a detailed

study to identify structural
compliments to stabilize
the dynamic shorelines
adjacent to Stump Pass.
These efforts have been
coordinated with the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
Beaches and Coastal
Systems and the Florida
Park Service who manag-
es the lands north of the
inlet.
Based on the profession-
al experience of Coastal
Engineering Consultants
and county staff, and with
the input of stakeholders,
several design consider-
ations were analyzed in
the selection of a struc-
tural complement. These
considerations include
adaptive management, a
desirable feature allowing
structures to be timely
and cost-effectively
modified based upon
performance; minimal
footprint, which protects
the natural environment;
downdrift impacts, which
mitigates for placed
structures; environmental
impacts, avoided or
minimized if possible;
environmental benefits,
to ensure sustaining the
beach fill which provides
habitat for threatened
and endangered species;
fiscal impacts, to ensure
program costs reduce
over the 25-year life of the
project.
Charlotte County staff
and the consulting team
completed a detailed al-
ternatives analysis of the


beach and inlet manage-
ment strategies deemed
feasible through the plan
formulation phase of
the work. The analyses
included extensive
stakeholder outreach
including presentations
to the Board of County
Commissioners, Beaches
and Shores Advisory
Committee, resident and
homeowner groups, and
state agencies. Based on
the detailed numerical
modeling study, input
from the stakeholders,
and assessment of alter-
natives, multiple strate-
gies were proposed and
evaluated along with an
adaptive management
plan to include future
strategies.
The selected recom-
mended long-term man-
agement plan includes
beach re-nourishment
to sustain the critically
eroding beaches on an
approximate eight-year
cycle using offshore
sand sources. In addi-
tion, the plan includes
dredging Stump Pass
for improved navigation
on an approximate
four-year cycle with
sand placement on the
shorelines immediately
adjacent to the pass, and
installation of a rock
terminal groin stabi-
lizing structure on the
south end of Manasota
Key. The plan also incor-
porates possible future
installation of T-groin
stabilizing structures on

Jean Clough was a WWII Army nurse in North Africa, Italy


By DON MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Jean Clough graduated
from high school in
1938 at age 17, but she
couldn't get into nursing
school at Kings County
Hospital in Brooklyn,
N.Y., until she was 18.
It was a long year's wait.
It would be 1942
before she graduated as
a registered nurse and
joined the Army Nurse
Corps, said Clough, now
92 and living at Village
on the Isle in Venice.
By then, World War II
was well underway, and
America and its allies
were barely holding
their own in the fight
against the Axis powers
- Germany, Japan and
Italy.
Clough's father, Harold
Moody, was aWorldWar I
veteran; her older bother,
Harold, was already in
the Navy. Her younger
brother, Ted, would fol-
low his lead and become
a landing craft jockey
on D-Day, taking troops
onto the beaches at
Normandy. She wanted
to do her part for the war
effort, too.
"Our family prided
itself on having taken
part in every war the
USA ever fought. I used
to hold with almost
reverence the mus-
ket Benjamin Moody
used in the Battle of
Bunker Hill ... during
the Revolutionary
War," Clough wrote
in a memoir for her
grandchildren years
after WWII. It's titled:
"A World War II Army
Nurse Remembers."


PHOTO PROVIDED
Jean Clough is pictured with her father, Harold Moody, on the front porch of their Delmar, N.Y.,
home during the war. Below: Putting out the wash in Mature, Tunisia, Jean and her fellow nurses
lived in the eight-person tents shown in the background.


More than 100 nurses
and dozens of doctors,
all from Kings County
Hospital, volunteered in
a group to join the Army
Medical Corps. They
became the staff of the
37th General Hospital
Group that saw action
in North Africa and
throughout the Italian
Campaign, primarily in
the Naples area.
"It was the fall of '42 and
they took us by train from
New York City to Stark,
Fla., that in those days
was out in the middle of
nowhere," Clough said.
"We were bused to Camp
Blanding, where we took
our basic training."
It was at Blanding
that she met her future
husband, Lucien Abbott,
on a blind date. He was
a young infantry lieu-
tenant who had recently
graduated from Clemson
College. He was head-
ed for the European
Campaign with the 34th
Infantry Division.
A few months later,
she and the rest of the
37th General Hospital
Group boarded "the
Empress of Japan" in
Newport News, Va.,
and sailed for the war.
The ocean liner that
took them to the coast
of North Africa was

confiscated by the U.S.
when the war broke out.
"Every sign on our ship
was in Japanese, includ-
ing the one for the ladies'
room," Clough said with
a smile. "It took us eight
days to make the cross-
ing. The Empress didn't
slow down during most
of the trip, except to pick
up 15 French nuns in a
lifeboat whose ship had
been torpedoed by a
German submarine.
"When we arrived
in the harbor at
Casablanca, Morocco,
we could see what
looked at first like
telephone poles sticking
out of the water. We got
closer we realized they
were the masts of ships
sunk at dockside during
the war," she said.
Casablanca was a big
city, with many white
houses as the name
implies. It was an exotic
place for a group of
young nurses from the
states who had never
been abroad before.
There were many little
shops along the streets.
The town was filled
with military personnel
from many nations. It
was an exciting place
to be. They slept in


eight-person tents,
and their hospital was
housed in a much larger
tent.
"I'll always remember
this one young soldier
I was working with. He
was horribly wounded.
When I came into his
room the first time he
was crying. He grabbed
my arm with the stub of
his arm, he had no hand,
and said, 'Don't try and
get me well. Please,
please give me some-
thing to put me away,'"
Clough remembered.
"'You don't want to send
someone who looks like
this back to a wife. We
had just gotten married
before I shipped out.'
"He wanted to die. He
didn't want to get better.
We worked on him and
he was eventually sent
home," she said. "You
didn't know whether to
be happy or not in a case
like this. I often wonder if
he made it with his wife.
"One day they came to
our tents and told us we
were moving out immedi-
ately. They put us in little
freight cars built during
WWI for 40 soldiers or
eight horses called 'forty
and eights.' The train took
us across the Horn of


Africa to Mature, Tunisia,
where we set up our tents
once more.
"Our troops were
going into Anzio, along
the Italian coast. We got
all the wounded soldiers
from that battle. We were
a 1,000-bed hospital,
but because of Anzio, we
doubled in size. We put
1,000 additional Army
cots for the wounded
out in the open on the
surrounding hills. They
flew the wounded from
the battle in Italy back to
our hospital in Tunisia in
plane after plane.
"After Mature, we
sailed for Bizerte,
Tunisia, along the coast.
The Germans had just
been run out of town
and the place was in
shambles. The (German)
Luftwaffe bombed the
city and the harbor at
Bizerte while they were
setting up their hospital.
"We weren't there long
when we took a ship to
Naples. We set up shop
in (Italian fascist dicta-
tor Benito) Mussolini's
Victory Fairgrounds
outside Naples. The
grounds had beautiful,
unfinished buildings
with pastoral scenes of
cows and horses on the
walls. We turned these
buildings into hospitals."
They lived on the
seventh floor of an
unfinished building
that lacked elevators. It
was in Naples that Jean
and Lucien's romance
blossomed.
Lucien was severely
injured by shrapnel
while fighting with the
34th Division in Italy
and had been put on
detached service. While
recovering from his
wounds, he worked
in a hospital in the
Fairgrounds across
the street from where
Clough was a nurse.
"A New Testament in
his breast pocket when
he was hit by shrapnel
saved his life. It was torn
into little shreds from
the steel fragments that
struck him," she said.
All these months, since
first meeting at Camp
Blanding, they kept their
romance alive through
letters. By this time,

At 92, former Lt. Jean
Clough of Village on
the Isle retirement
home can still fit
into her World War II
nurse's uniform. She
was the guest speaker
at the Clyde Lassen
VFW Post in
Englewood on
Veterans Day.
Lucien was a major.
"We decided to get
married in the Allied
Officers Club in Naples
on Sept. 21, 1944," she
recalled. "Because we
were in the Army we had
to apply for a marriage
license. Wouldn't you
know, the Army came
back and said we could
get married any day
after Sept. 21.
"We chose the 22nd.
Our wedding became
a big deal because my
husband knew a lot of
brass who attended the
affair. My mother sent
me a wedding gown
with a long train. We got
a week off and honey-
mooned in Sorento and
the Isle of Capri.
"A month or so later I
found out I was preg-
nant. They sent me back
to the states immediate-
ly. Since Lucian was still
overseas I went home to
Delmar, N.Y., to live with
my parents."
After he was dis-
charged from the Army,
Lucian went to work for
a big pharmaceutical
company in Atlanta.
Three children and 13
years later, he died at
age 43 from war-related
injuries. It was 1958.
"I was 37 and could no
longer work in nursing
because in nursing you
had to work three shifts
around the clock. With
three children, one of
whom was only 4,1 had
to quit nursing and find
another job," Clough said.
"So I went into teaching
and taught junior high
school science in schools
around Atlanta for the
next 20 years. I really
liked it. Part of the time
I got to be the school
nurse, because in those
days, each school didn't
have a designated nurse."
She retired from
teaching in 1982 and
eventually moved to
Englewood, where her
parents had retired.
She has three children,
Sandra, Karen and Andy.

Chorus celebrates banner year


he Port Charlotte
Middle School
Chorus is cele-
brating a coup, because
for the first time in at
least 20 years it has sent
students to the Florida
All-State Middle School
Treble Chorus.
Rosters posted Nov. 12
by the Florida Vocal
Association announced
that Kaelyn Griffiths,
a seventh-grader, and
Haley Kosnik, an
eighth-grader, will be
joining the chorus in
Tampa for three days in
January.
Both girls completed a
three-part audition for a
role in the chorus, which
included a musicianship
test, sight reading of
music they had never
seen before, and a per-
formance of the songs
that will be sung in the
all-state concert.
"My students are
very, very excited," said
Trista Grossnicklaus, the
chorus teacher at Port
Charlotte Middle. "They
didn't think they'd get
in.
In addition to last
week's good news, the
chorus also learned at
the beginning of this

DALLAS Today's kids can't

On average, it takes children 90

Heart-related fitness has declined

JPMorgan, gov't reach $13B settlement


WASHINGTON (AP)
JPMorgan Chase
& Co. has agreed to
pay $13 billion in a
landmark settlement
and acknowledged
that it misled investors
about the quality of
risky mortgage-backed
securities ahead of the
2008 financial crisis.
The settlement
announced Tuesday
with the Department
of Justice is the largest
ever between the U.S.
government and a cor-
poration. It also included
settlements with New
York, California and
other states.
JPMorgan was among
the major banks that
sold securities that
plunged in value when
the housing market col-
lapsed in 2006 and 2007.
Those losses triggered
a financial crisis that
pushed the economy
into the worst recession
since the 1930s.
The deal was reached
after months of negoti-
ations and could serve
as a template for similar
settlements with other
big banks. As part of the
deal, JPMorgan agreed
to provide $4 billion in
relief to homeowners
affected by the bad

between the government and a corporation, a person familiar with the negotiations s


loans. The bank also
acknowledged that it
misrepresented the
quality of its securities to
investors.
"Without a doubt, the
conduct uncovered in
this investigation helped
sow the seeds of the
mortgage meltdown,"
Attorney General Eric
Holder said. "JPMorgan
was not the only finan-
cial institution during


this period to knowingly
bundle toxic loans and
sell them to unsuspect-
ing investors, but that is
no excuse for the firm's
behavior."
JPMorgan will pay
$2 billion in civil pen-
alties to the federal
government and about
$1 billion to New York
state. Another $6 billion
will go toward compen-
sating investors.


More schools collecting,


using student data


WASHINGTON
(Stateline.org)- A grow-
ing number of states are
expanding the way they
use student and school
data. Teachers easily tap
into data about their
students' performance
to adjust how they
teach, and parents can
log into networks to
learn how their children
are doing, according
to a new report by the
Data Quality Campaign,
a Washington-based
nonprofit that advocates
using data to improve
student achievement.
Along the way, ques-
tions about student
privacy and other
concerns are mounting.
Among the report's
findings:
Teachers this year
can access information
about their students
through secure state
websites or portals in
35 states, an increase
from 28 states in 2011.
Teachers can view
multiple years' worth
of information about
individual students,
including courses taken
and attendance.
In 17 states, teacher
training programs can
tap into information
about how their gradu-
ates are performing in
the classroom, up from

six states in 2011. The
data show how stu-
dents in those teachers'
classrooms perform on
standardized tests.
Parents in 14 states
can access electron-
ic data about their
children.
Thirty-one states use
data to identify the
students most at risk
of academic failure or
dropping out, up from
18 in 2011.
Forty-five states have
policies requiring the
maintenance or use of
school data systems, up
from 36 in 2011.
The survey of state
programs was taken in
the summer and includes
results from the District
of Columbia and every
state except California,
which declined to
participate.
Aimee Rogstad Guidera,
executive director of the
Data Quality Campaign,
said the survey showed
the focus has now shifted
from collecting data in
the schools to actually
using it.
"State leaders in-
creasingly recognize
that empowering
parents, educators and
policymakers with the
right data at the right
time in the right format
better ensures our


young people gradu-
ate from high school
prepared for postsec-
ondary education and
careers," Guidera said.
The report also
highlights challenges
for schools and states
handling student
data, such as the need
to ensure privacy.
Oklahoma, for exam-
ple, passed legislation
this year establishing
safeguards around the
collection and use of
student data.
Elsewhere around the
country, several states
that had signed up to
work with inBloom, an
Atlanta-based non-
profit that collects and
stores student data for
school districts, have
since backed off over
security concerns. In
New York, parents are
suing to stop the state
education department
from working with
inBloom.
Parents have ex-
pressed concerns about
inBloom's plan to place
student data on a
cloud-based data sys-
tem accessible through
the Internet. The group
said its system is secure,
and that school districts
will be able to manage
and control their own
data.

The deal eclipses
the record $4 billion

January over the 2010
offshore oil spill, which
was the worst in U.S.
history.
While the $13 billion
that JPMorgan is paying

Virginia senator


stabbed by son


CHARLOTTESVILLE,
Va. (AP) The son of
a state senator in the
U.S. stabbed his father
in the head and chest
Tuesday before appar-
ently killing himself
with a gun, according
to initial reports from
police.
Authorities were
still piecing together a
motive and the circum-
stances that led up to
the stabbing of Virginia
state Sen. Creigh Deeds.
"We're leaning
towards it being an
attempted murder/
suicide," Virginia State
Police spokeswoman
Corrine Geller said.


Deeds' 24-year-old
son, Gus, died at the
home of a gunshot
wound. Geller said
k Creigh Deeds and his
son were the only peo-
ple at the home, and
police were not looking
for a suspect.
SThe senator was in
fair condition at a hos-
S pital. He had previously

After the stabbing,
Deeds was able to walk
away from his rural
home to a nearby road
and a cousin who was
driving by happened
to notice the senator,
police said.
Inside the senator's
home, authorities found
Gus Deeds with a gun-
shot wound. Despite
efforts by state troopers
and first responders, he
died there.
Gus Deeds is one
of the senator's four
adult children. He was
studying music at the
College of William and
Mary, where he had
been enrolled off and
on since 2007, but
withdrew last month,
school spokesman
Brian Whitson said. The

It did not say why he
left.

Federal judge
grants stay of

ST. LOUIS (AP) -A
federal judge in Missouri
on Tuesday granted
a stay of execution
to white supremacist
serial killer Joseph Paul
Franklin just hours be-
fore his scheduled death,
citing concerns over the
state's new execution
method.
U.S. District Court
Judge Nanette Laughrey
ruled that a lawsuit
filed by Franklin and 20
other death row inmates
challenging Missouri's
execution protocol must
be resolved before he is
put to death.
The 14-page ruling
criticizes the timing
of the state's changes
to how it administers
capital punishment,
specifically its plan to
use for the first time ever
a single drug, pentobar-
bital, made for the first
time in Missouri by a
compounding pharmacy.

New York City
raises legal age
for buying tobacco

NEWYORK (LA Times)
- New York Mayor
Michael Bloomberg,
who has targeted sugar,
salt and fat in his drive
to make the city health-
ier, turned his attention
to tobacco Tuesday as
he signed legislation
raising the age at which
people can legally buy
cigarettes from 18 to 21.
The law affects the
kind that produce
smoke and electronic
cigarettes, which have
been marketed as a
healthy alternative but
which city lawmakers
say encourage young
people to pick up the
nicotine habit.
With Bloomberg's
signature, New York City
becomes the first major
metropolitan area in
the nation to have such
a law. In addition to
cigarettes, it prohibits
retailers from selling
chewing tobacco, rolling
papers, pipes, powdered
tobacco and small ci-
gars to anyone younger
than 21.

New allegation made against Zimmerman in court


SANFORD (AP)-
George Zimmerman's
girlfriend said he tried to
choke her about a week
ago during an altercation
that was not initially
reported to police, a prose-
cutor told a judge Tuesday
during Zimmermarn's
first court appearance on
domestic violence-related
charges.
Samantha Scheibe
feared for her life because
Zimmerman mentioned
suicide and said he "had
nothing to lose," according
to Assistant State Attorney
Lymary Munoz.
After the hearing,
Zimmerman's public
defenders said he did not
appear to be suicidal and


expressed confidence he
would be acquitted of any
wrongdoing.
Hours later, Zimmerman
was released from jail after
posting $9,000 bond. He
was seen walking out of
the jail smiling and getting
into a car.
Judge Frederic Schott
ordered him to stay away
from Scheibe's house, wear
a monitoring device and
refrain from contact with
her. He was forbidden
from possessing guns or
ammunition or traveling
outside Florida.
Zimmerman has been
charged with aggravated
assault, a third-degree felo-
ny punishable by up to five
years in prison. He also has


been charged with battery
and criminal mischief,
both misdemeanors. An
arraignment is set for Jan. 7.
The judge said
Zimmermarn's previous
brushes with the law were
not a factor in the condi-
tions he imposed, but he
did cite the new allegation
of choking as a reason for
the bond amount.
Earlier this year,
Zimmerman was acquit-
ted of all charges in the
fatal shooting of teenager
Trayvon Martin in a case
that drew worldwide
attention.
Zimmerman, 30, wore
gray jail garments and
handcuffs during the
hearing and spoke only


when answering yes or no
to the judge.
Public defender Jeff
Dowdy said Zimmermarn's
family has been support-
ing him financially.
"I would
think it
would be
difficult
for George
Zimmerman
to get a job
in central
Florida," he
ZIMMERMAN said.
In an affidavit filed
Tuesday, Zimmerman
asked for a public defense,
saying he has liabilities and
debts of at least $2 million
and no income. He said he
had less than $150 in cash.


Dowdy and another
public defender, Daniel
Megaro, said Zimmerman
was not suicidal.
"He doesn't appear to
be a danger to himself or
a danger to anybody else,"
Megaro said.
Zimmerman has
previously used a website
to raise money for his
legal and living expenses,
including $95,000 spent
on bail in the Martin case.
The site also says tens of
thousands of dollars were
spent on living expenses
and security.
The most recent posting
on the site, weeks before
Zimmermarn's acquittal,
said the fund ran out of
money in late May but


raised tens of thousands
more after public requests
for help.
A link to donate via
PayPal did not appear to
be working Tuesday.
In this latest scuffle,
both Zimmerman and
his girlfriend called 911
and provided dueling
descriptions to dispatchers
about the argument at the
home she rented where
Zimmerman was staying.
Scheibe accused him
in the 911 call of pointing
a gun at her, smashing a
coffee table and pushing
her outside. Zimmerman
also called dispatchers,
denied pointing a gun at
her and blamed her for
the broken table.


Police: Katherine Harris' husband commits suicide


SARASOTA (AP)-
The husband of former
Florida Secretary of
State Katherine Harris,
who became known
nationally for her role
in the contested 2000
presidential election,
was found dead Tuesday
of an apparent suicide
at the couple's mansion,
police said.
Harris' husband,
Anders Ebbeson, 68, was


found dead at the home

Tuesday

said
Sarasota

Swedish businessman
had suffered from health


issues in recent years,
said Pastor William Hild
of Sarasota First Baptist
Church. Hild declined

health problems or how
Ebbeson killed himself
Harris was in office
overseeing the 2000
election in Florida and
proved instrumental
in delivering the state's
contested electoral
votes, and the White


House, to President
GeorgeW Bush. Harris,
a Republican, also
served in Congress from
2003-2007.
Ebbeson was a Swedish
businessman who owned
several European busi-
ness interests, including
a business that equipped
yachts with appliances
and lighting. Harris
credited her husband
with helping her through


tough political moments.
"He was much beloved
by his family," Hild said.
"He was very warm and a
generous person."
Ebbeson and Harris met
in 1996 in Sarasota and
married the same year.
They were both divorced.
According to a 2006
Tampa Bay Times article,
they were set up on a
blind date to an opera.
"He was a gentleman


of the highest order,"
said Agriculture
Commissioner Adam
Putnam, who is Harris'
cousin. "He was obvi-
ously incredibly in love
with Katherine. He would
beam at her whenever
she was in his presence."
Ebbeson was well-read
and well-traveled, which
made him a fascinating
person to talk with,
Putnam said.

Bay area
economy's sprints
into US top 20
(Tampa Bay Times) -
Can you feel the surge?
Tampa Bay's economy
ranks among the 20
fastest-growing metro
areas in the country this
year, and the momentum
is expected to carry into
2014.
With a 3.2 percent
growth rate, Tampa Bay
came in 16th out of 363
metros, according to
a U.S. Conference of
Mayors analysis released
Monday. It's expected
to grow 2.8 percent next
year.
That's not only better
than any other Florida
metro area, it counters an
economic funk afflicting
an increasing number of
cities.
Overall, the report
found the nation's cities
struggling more this year
than last, with roughly
a third showing flat or
declining economies.
Of the two-thirds in
positive territory, nearly
40 percent were growing
by 1 percent or less.

Hijacker who

denied bail
MIAMI (AP) -An
American who returned
from Cuba to face U.S.
charges that he hijacked
an airliner to Havana
decades ago was denied
release on bail Tuesday,
in part because of an out-
standing arrest warrant
claiming he committed
a New Jersey armed
robbery.
Assistant U.S. Attorney
Maria Medetis said
at a bail hearing that
William Potts faces
still-active charges that
he robbed a gas station
attendant at knifepoint in
Bergen County, N.J., on
March 26, 1984. That's the
day before Potts boarded a
NewYork-to-Miami flight
and hijacked it to Havana
by claiming in a note that
he was a black militant
called "Lt. Spartacus" who
had bombs on board,
according to the FBI.

DELTONA(AP)- A

board has decided to

The board made its
decision Monday after

didn't take a formal vote
after hearing from some
80 speakers.
Opponents say it's full

other religions, including
Christianity and Judaism.
They asked for a thorough

Thieves take
$500,000 worth of
energy drinks
MEDLEY (AP) -
Thieves took off about
$500,000 worth of Red
Bull energy drinks from a
South Florida warehouse.
The Miami Herald
reports the theft occurred
sometime over the
Veterans Day weekend
at a modern warehouse
that opened just a few
months ago in Medley,
near Miami.
"When the workers ar-
rived in the morning, they
found that the alarms had


-a


been disconnected," said
Medley police detective
Lourdes Muniz. She
said the warehouse was
locked at 4 p.m. on Nov. 9
when workers left for the
weekend.
The thieves apparently
had a key to the OHL, Inc.
warehouse and discon-
nected the alarm system,
said Muniz. A security
company remotely moni-
tors the building.
Muniz said that once
inside, the thieves used
four forklifts to move 108
pallets. There were no
surveillance cameras at the
warehouse, so investiga-
tors have no visual way to
identify the thieves or the
type of vehicle they left in.

the president took the dais

when it looked like the nation
"might indeed perish from the

"The Battle of Gettysburg
became the hinge of fate on
which turned the destiny of
that nation and its new birth
of freedom," McPherson said.
In the July 1863 battle,
considered the turning point
of the war, Union forces fought
back a Confederate invasion of
Pennsylvania. Lincoln's speech
was delivered more than four
months later, at the dedication
of a national cemetery to bury
the battle's casualties.
In the short oration, he
spoke of how democracy itself
rested upon "the proposition
that all men are created
equal," a profound and polit-
ically risky statement for the
time. Slavery and the doctrine
of states' rights would not hold

Lincoln's vision.

"Yet the old nation also died,"

Part of the event was a

TEXT OF THE GETTYSBURG ADDRESS
(AP) The text of the Gettysburg Address, as
delivered by President Abraham Lincoln on Nov. 19,
1863, and transmitted by The Associated Press 150
years ago:

Four score and seven years ago our fathers
brought forth upon this continent a new nation,
conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the propo-
sition that all men are created equal. (Applause.)
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing
whether that nation, or any nation so conceived
and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met
on a great battle field of that war; we are met to
dedicate a portion of it as the final resting place
of those who here gave their lives that that nation
might live. It is altogether fitting and proper
that we should do this, but in a larger sense, we
cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot
hallow this ground.
The brave men, living and dead, who struggled
here have consecrated it far above our poor power
to add or to detract. (Applause.) The world will
little note, nor long remember, what we say
here; but it can never forget what they did here.
(Applause.) It is for us, the living, rather to be
dedicated here to the unfinished work that they
have thus far so nobly carried on. (Applause.) It
is rather for us here to be dedicated to the great
task remaining before us; that from these honored
dead we take increased devotion to that cause for
which they gave the last full measure of devotion;
that we here highly resolve that the dead shall
not have died in vain. (Applause.) That the nation
shall, under God, have a new birth of freedom,
and that the government of the people, by the
people and for the people, shall not perish from
the earth. (Long applause.)

Russia grants
bail to 9 foreign
activists
ST. PETERSBURG,
Russia (AP) -A Russian
court on Tuesday grant-
ed bail to nine foreign
Greenpeace protesters,
the first non-Russians
jailed and awaiting trial
over a demonstration
near a Russian oil rig
to be made eligible for
release.
The decision came a
day after the Primorsky
court in St. Petersburg
refused to release an
Australian activist, and
another court granted
bail to three Russians,
including prominent
photographer Denis
Sinyakov.
The Primorsky court
set bail at 2 million rubles
($61,500) each for the
activists from Argentina,
Canada, Brazil, Finland,
France, Italy, New
Zealand and Poland. The
court said they will be
released if the bail is paid
within the next four days.

'Apocalyptic'
storm floods
Sardinia, 17 dead
ROME (AP) -The
Mediterranean island of
Sardinia, prized by the
jet-set for its white sand
beaches and crystal-clear
seas, was a flood-ravaged
mud bath Tuesday after a
freak torrential rainstorm
killed at least 17 people,
downed bridges and
swept away cars.
Italian Premier Enrico
Letta declared a state of
emergency and set aside
20 million euros ($27 mil-
lion) for emergency relief,
saying the priority was
reaching remote areas,
saving the lives of those
still unaccounted for
and providing for those
left homeless. Letta later
traveled to the island,
where he met with people
hit by the floods.

Asif Rizvi says Shabbir
Shah and his driver were
killed in the city of Gujrat
on Tuesday as he was
heading to work at the
University of Gujrat. He
said they are still investi-

Islamist attack
on Somali police
station kills 17
MOGADISHU, Somalia
(MCT) -At least 17
people died Tuesday in an
attack on a police station
in Beledweyne, a town in
central Somalia, officials
and resident said.
The attack was carried
out by a suicide bomber
and several men with
guns, all believed to be
members of the Islamist
al-Shabab militia.
A car laden with
explosives first rammed
into the police station.
Several armed men then
opened fire, randomly
killing people.
Among the dead were
four attackers and several
police officers.
"We have lost some
policemen. Also, several
civilians are either dead
or injured in the at-
tacks. Ten others were
rushed to local hospi-
tals," said Abdi Farah
Laqanyo, the governor
of the central Hiiraan
region.
Somali President
Hassan Sheikh Mohamud
condemned the attack.

BEIRUT (AP) Suicide
bombers struck the
Iranian Embassy on
Tuesday, killing 23 peo-
ple, including a diplomat,
and wounding more than
140 others in a "message
of blood and death" to
Tehran and Hezbollah -
both supporters of Syrian
President Bashar Assad.
The double bombing in
a Shiite district of Beirut
pulled Lebanon further
into a conflict that has
torn apart the deeply
divided country, and
came as Assad's troops,
aided by Hezbollah
militants, captured a key
town near the Lebanese
border from rebels.
The bombing was
one of the deadliest in a
series of attacks targeting
Hezbollah and Shiite
strongholds in Lebanon
in recent months.
An al-Qaida-linked
group said it carried out
the attack as payback
for Hezbollah's backing


MOSCOW (AP) -The
pilots of a Boeing 737
that plunged into the
ground at Kazan airport
lost speed in a steep
climb then overcompen-
sated and sent the plane
into a near-vertical dive,
according to a prelim-
inary report released
Tuesday by Russian
aviation experts. All 50
people aboard were
killed.
The Moscow-based
Interstate Aviation
Committee, which
oversees civil flights
in much of the former
Soviet Union, said the
plane's engines and other
systems were working
fine until the moment
the plane crashed
Sunday night.
The Tatarstan Airlines
plane was flying from
Moscow to the central
city of Kazan, 720
kilometers (450 miles)
to the east. The Russian
aviation experts said the
plane's two pilots had
failed to make a proper
landing approach on
their first attempt, so
they began a second try.
The report did not
specify why the pilots
aborted the first landing.

of Assad forces against
the mainly Sunni rebels
as the Syrian civil war
increasingly becomes a
confrontation between
regional powers.
The Syrian army's bor-
der offensive is part of a
larger government push
that started last month
and has seen forces loyal
to Assad firmly seizing
the momentum in the


war, taking one rebel
stronghold after another.
The attacks raised fears
in Lebanon that Islamic
extremists, now on the
defensive in Syria, would
increasingly hit back in
Lebanon. The country
is suffering the effects
of competing sectarian
loyalties.
"People fight outside
(Lebanon), but send


their messages through
Lebanon. With bombs,"
said a mechanic whose
store windows were
shattered by the blasts.
The midmorning
explosions hit the
neighborhood of janah,
a Hezbollah stronghold
and home to several
embassies and upscale
apartments, leaving bod-
ies and pools of blood on
the glass-strewn street
amid burning cars.
In the chaotic after-
math, volunteers tried
to extinguish bodies still
aflame from the blast by
covering them with their
sweaters and blankets.
U.N. Secretary-General
Ban Ki-moon con-
demned the attacks and
called on all Lebanese
to recognize that "such
appalling and indiscrim-
inate acts of violence"
target everyone in the
country, U.N. acting dep-
uty spokesman Farhan
Haq said.

Earnings make stocks edge lower


NEWYORK (AP)-
Disappointing earnings
news helped push the stock
market lower on Tuesday.
Electronics retailer Best
Buy plunged after saying
extended store hours and
price-cutting could squeeze
its fourth-quarter profit.
Campbell Soup fell sharply
after reporting that its profit
slumped as sales of soups
andV8 drinks fell. The two
stocks were the biggest
decliners in the Standard &
Poor's 500 index.
Even with the slight
decline the S&P 500 is still


up 25 percent so far in 2013
and has risen for six weeks
straight, the longest win-
ning streak since February.
The extended run-up has
prompted a number of
market watchers to call for
caution.
"We've had a phenome-
nal run, particularly in the
last few weeks. I wouldn't
be surprised if we would
pull back from here," said
Alec Young, global equity
strategist with S&P Capital
IQ.
The Dow Jones industrial
average edged down 8.99


points, or 0.1 percent, to
15,967.03, the first decline
for the index in five days.
The Standard & Poor's 500
index lost 3.66 points, or
0.2 percent, to 1,787.87 and
the Nasdaq composite fell
17.51 points, or 0.4 percent,
to 3,931.55.
The Dow Jones industrial
average and the S&P 500
crossed round-number
milestones in early trading
Monday but failed to build
on those advances. The
Dow crossed 16,000 and
the S&P 500 hit 1,800 for
the first time before falling


back to close below those
levels both Monday and
Tuesday.
Retailers were a key focus
on Tuesday, especially
with the holiday shopping
season coming up. Black
Friday, the day after
Thanksgiving, is one of the
biggest shopping days of
the year. Consumer spend-
ing is a critical component
of the U.S. economy, so
how consumers behave
during the closely watched
holiday season will give
investors a sign about the
outlook for growth.

On July 4, 2005, this
column spoke for the
first of many times on
the value of keeping
good backups of im-
portant files. Over the
succeeding eight years,
the same theme was ex-
pounded in great detail.
Many readers have
backed up their files,
either to external sources
such as DVDs or to the
cloud. Unfortunately,
many did not. Rarely a
week goes by that efforts
are made to resurrect
lost files from a dead
hard drive. This week,
due to a new event, it
is imperative that we
back up critical files that
would be impossible to
recreate.
Why do this and why
now?
The United
States Computer
Emergency Readiness
Team announced
Nov. 5 the Alert (TA13-
309A) CryptoLocker
Ransomware Infections.
"CryptoLocker is a new
variant of ransomware

every other file format

The virus encrypts

is to be transferred via

untraceable).
Without the private
key, the files will never
be available. The virus
also begins a countdown
clock that gives the
infected computer user
96 hours to pay or the

and the encrypted files
can never be recovered.
If the virus is deleted
from the infected ma-
chine, the private key is
destroyed. Information

at this time the only
recovery is to remove
the virus or reformat the
PC and reinstall the OS
(operating system) and
then recover our critical
files from our BACKUP
Remember that backing
up to the C drive will
ensure that those backed
up files are also encrypted
and unrecoverable. Use
one of the online backup
companies such as Mozy

the drive between backups
as the virus looks for drive

Giving their son



some problems


ear Dave: We've
been supporting
our son while he's
in college. He just finished
his sophomore year, but
he told us the other day
he has dropped out of
school and isn't going
back. He's been playing in
a band on weekends, and
he has this vague idea of
becoming a musician. We
don't think this is a good
idea, but we still want to
be supportive. Karen
Dear Karen: This kid
is about to have some
problems. Not only has
he made a bad decision,
but he should have
consulted with you guys
before he quit school. He
owed you that much if
you were supporting him
this whole time.
In my opinion, you and
your husband have one
job right now. That job is
to stand back and let life
happen to this kid. If he
thinks he's a man, let him
go out and prove it. Wish
him the best and tell him
you hope he becomes the
rich and famous rock star
he wants to be. But make
sure he understands
you're not going to sup-
port him financially when
he's doing something you
both feel is a bad idea.
Understand that I'm not
suggesting you turn your
backs on this guy. Let him
know how much you both
love him and that you'll
be praying for him. Invite
him over for dinner once
in a while, stay in touch,
and make sure he knows
that family deals are still
business as usual.
In the end, let him
know you'll be there to
help just like before if he
wises up and decides to
finish school. -Dave

Dear Dave: Should I


lower my 401 (k) contribu-
tions in order to pay off
my car and home? Jack
Dear Jack: If you're
following my plan, the
first thing you should do
is set aside an emergency
fund of $1,000. That's
Baby Step 1. Next comes
Baby Step 2, which means
paying off all of your debt
except for your house.
This would include your
car. During this time you
should temporarily stop
any kind of investing and
retirement contributions.
Once the only debt
left is your mortgage,
it's time to move on to
Baby Step 3. Now you
concentrate on growing
your emergency fund to
the point where you have
three to six months of
expenses set aside. Once
this is done, you can
attack Baby Step 4, which
is investing 15 percent
of your pre-tax income
for retirement. For you, it
would mean re-starting
the contributions to your
401(k).
The rest of the plan goes
like this. Baby Step 5 is
putting money into your
kids' college funds, while
Baby Step 6 is putting
everything you can scrape
together towards paying
off the house early. After
that comes the real fun.
Baby Step 7 is the point
where you simply build
wealth and give.- Dave

'Selfie' is Oxford's 2013 Word of the Year


LONDON (LA Times)-
In what was described as
an unusually unanimous
decision, "selfie" has been
chosen as Word of the Year
by the publishers of the
Oxford English Dictionary,
beating out "twerk" and
a host of other Internet
and social media-related
terms, such as "bitcoin,"
that have exploded onto
the verbal scene in recent
years.
"It seems like everyone
who is anyone has posted
a selfie somewhere on
the Internet," Oxford
Dictionaries said on its
blog, without offering an
accompanying selfie of
the writer. Use of"selfie,"
to mean a self-portrait


typically snapped with a
smartphone and shared
over social networks,
has risen 17,000 percent
in frequency over the
past 12 months, Oxford
Dictionaries said. "Twerk'
experienced a notable
midyear surge, thanks to
Miley Cyrus, but has not
proven quite as popular or
universal.
Although it was the "run-
away winner" for the panel
charged with selecting the
2013Word oftheYear, "sel-
fie" was already on Oxford
Dictionaries' list of words to
watch last year, like a song
moving up the Billboard
singles chart. It made it into
Oxford Dictionaries' online
version three months


ago, but hasn't yet broken
through to the magisterial
Oxford English Dictionary,
orOED.
Perhaps surprising to
some, the term was first
recorded in Australia, not
the U.S. or Britain, in 2002.
An abashed and probably
hungover participant in
an Internet forum posted
a self-portrait taken after a
drunken accident on a set
of stairs.
"I had a hole right
through my bottom lip," the
post said. 'And sorry about
the focus, it was a selfie."
Adding the suffix "-ie"
is a characteristic lin-
guistic trait Down Under,
as Oxford Dictionaries
noted and as any visitor


quickly discovers. Un-self-
conscious antipodeans real-
ly do say "barbie" (on which
one slips an extra shrimp),
"cozzie" (for swimming
costume, or swimsuit to an
American) and, of course,
"Aussie."
As for "selfie," early
evidence shows a variant
spelling with a -y ending,
"but the -ie form is vastly
more common today and
has become the accepted
spelling of the word,"
Oxford Dictionaries
declared definitively,
adding, "It could be argued
that the use of the -ie suffix
helps to turn an essentially
narcissistic enterprise into
something rather more
endearing."

'Montana Dueling


Dinos' fail to sell at


NY auction


NEWYORK (AP)-
Two fossilized dinosaur
skeletons, dubbed the
"Montana Dueling
Dinosaurs" because they
appear forever locked
in mortal combat, failed
to sell Tuesday at a New
York City auction.
A pre-sale estimate had
predicted that the skele-
tons, offered as a single
lot, could fetch between
$7 million and $9 mil-
lion a price out of the
reach of most museums.
There were hopes that
a wealthy buyer would
donate the skeletons
to a public institution,
similar to how The Field
Museum came to own
Sue, a Tyrannosaurus
rex discovered in South
Dakota in 1990.
But the skeletons did
not make the reserve at
the Bonhams auction;
the highest offer was
$5.5 million. Auction of-
ficials said they remained
hopeful that they'd find
a buyer, possibly among
institutions that had
previously expressed
interest.


The discovery began
with a dinosaur pelvis
protruding through rock
at the Montana ranch.
Three more months of
chiseling and digging
revealed a remarkable
discovery: two nearly
complete, fossilized
dinosaur skeletons of a
carnivore and herbivore,
their tails touching.
A pushed-in skull and
teeth of one dinosaur
embedded in the other
suggested a deadly
confrontation between
them. Clayton Phipps, a
fossil hunter who made
the discovery on his
neighbor's land in 2006 in
the fossil-rich Hell Creek
Formation, gave the
fossils their name.
The fossils are
believed to be a
Nanotyrannus lancensis,
a smaller relative of
the T. rex, and a newly
discovered species
of Chasmosaurine
ceratopsian, a close rel-
ative of the Triceratops,
which lived at the end of
the Cretaceous age some
65 million years ago.

Smith, Frederick

By DAWN KLEMISH
SUN CORRESPONDENT
NORTH PORT -It was
hard to tell who had more
fun during North Port High
School's hard-fought win
Tuesday night, Le'Kyra Smith
or Camille Frederick.


The former had a game-
high 23 points and seven
steals and the latter made
her long-awaited comeback
during the Bobcat's 56-45
win against Lemon Bay.
"We missed some shots
underneath that hurt us and
that made it a tough game,"
North Port coach Tom Tintor
said. "(The Manta Rays) are
a good team. It wasn't a great
win, but a win is a win and

we'll take it."
Smith celebrated her 18th
birthday in style, especially
so during the second quarter
when she scored nine
and collected five steals.
Frederick entered the game


with 5:36 to go in the same
quarter to rousing cheers.
The senior underwent ACL
surgery on her left knee in
May and has been out since.
Though she played
sparingly, Frederick scored
nine, had three blocks and
five rebounds.
The game was evenly
matched through three
quarters, but the Mantas

Late save


preserves



draw for


Pirate


By ROB SHORE
SPORTS WRITER
PORT CHARLOTTE -With the game
on the line, Port Charlotte High School
goalkeeper Veronica Milo guessed wrong.
When Charlotte's Bryanna Tyre broke in
on goal in the 78th minute, Milo dove left
for the save and Tyre fired a shot to her
right. Milo's kick
save preserved
a 0-0 draw at UP NEXT
Pirates Cove.
"That's one way Port Charlotte: at
to do it," Milo North Port, Friday, 7p.m.
laughed. "I had to Charlotte: vs. Venice,
though because I Friday, 7p.m.
went left and the
shot went right. It
was just a quick reaction."
Milo's quick save spared the Pirates on
a night when they had controlled the flow
of play for much of the match.
Port Charlotte finished with 13 shots on
target against the Tarpons' four, though
most of the Pirates' shots were right at
Charlotte keeper Jessie Valerius.
The lack of Charlotte shots made Milo's
save even more impressive.
"I just had to stay focused," Milo said.
"But I'm happy with that. I was lucky I

What if, during those

just escorted Geno Smith

David is a terrific player.
What if he recognized that
a quarterback going out of

Bucs hold off the Jets?


Would the Bucs be 3-7
today instead of 2-8?
What if Greg Schiano
had trusted Josh Freeman?
What if things hadn't
become so strained that
Schiano turned Freeman
into a bystander during
the Saints game? What if
he had let Freeman throw
the ball on third and 6
near the end of the game?
Or, another way to put it,
what if he had grown so
fed up with Freeman that
he sent him to the skybox

Uihlein's passport to success


By DOUG FERGUSON
ASSOCIATED PRESS
NAPLES -The road
less traveled brought Peter
Uihlein back to a familiar
place. He was home in
South Florida, finally, after
a remarkable golf season
that took some unexpected
turns while covering six
tours in 18 countries, three
U.S. states and Puerto
Rico.
In the hours before the
New England Patriots
kicked off on Monday
night his kind of football
- he kept busy by replying
to messages on Twitter
congratulating him for
being the first American to
win European Tour rookie
of the year in the 53-year
history of the Sir Henry
Cotton Award.
"Pretty good start,"
Uihlein said.
He might not be the
last American to win the
award.
As Uihlein (YOO'-line)
was wrapping up his
season with three more
stamps in his passport -
Shanghai, Turkey, Dubai
- four Americans earned
European Tour cards at
Q-school in Spain. Uihlein
knows them all. One is
John Hahn, whom Uihlein
beat in 19 holes to advance
to the quarterfinals of the
2010 U.S. Amateur he won

Peter Uihlein won the Madeira Islands Open in May. This week
he kept busy replying to messages congratulating him for being
the first American to win European Tour rookie of the year.


at Chambers Bay.
One reason behind more
Americans trying to get
European Tour cards is
because the PGA Tour now
only awards Web.com Tour
cards at its Q-school.
"We're an option for
American guys, especially
now that Q-school works
a little strange," Matteo
Manassero of Italy said.
"They can come here and
get a full card. I'm happy
to see Peter making the
effort here. He deserved
all the success he got. It's
a different tour. But if you
make an experience here
as an American, I think it
can help."
Uihlein didn't set out to
make a name for himself,
but that's what happened.


Even as one of the top
amateurs in America, he
invariably was referred to
as the son ofWally Uihlein,
the longtime chief execu-
tive of Acushnet, makers
of Titleist equipment and
FootJoy shoes. He devel-
oped his own identity as
a two-time Walker Cup
player and U.S. Amateur
champion.
And now? He's known as
the American who's cutting
his teeth on the European
Tour.
"Nothing wrong with
that," he said. "It's sweet."
Uihlein might not be
traveling to all corners of
the globe if he had made it
through the second stage
of Q-school. The quicker
path to the PGA Tour


might be to toil on the
Web.com Tour for a year.
"I think it's more than
that," Uihlein said. "It's
being a global player. It's
being able to play golf all
around the world. Take
Ernie Els. He plays in
every country. YIt's a good
experience."
But it's not for everyone.
American players can go
home on Sunday and stay
for a few days before head-
ing back out to the grind.
Uihlein went from India to
Johannesburg at the start
of the year. In one stretch
this summer, he went from
Germany to Ireland to
France to Scotland. That's
a lot of time in strange
hotels that don't carry the
Boston Red Sox network.
"It can get lonely," he
said.
But it produced a rookie
of the year, a European
Tour winner, a player test-
ed in different conditions
and different countries.
Uihlein is 24.
His work is not over.
Uihlein started the year at
No. 384 and is up to No. 64.
Even if he gets in a majori-
ty of the majors and World
Golf Championships, he
still has to perform in them
to make headway toward a
PGA Tour card.
Odds are he'll be better
off when he gets there.

ORLANDO AWARDED
MLS EXPANSION
FRANCHISE
ORLANDO (AP)-
Orlando City Soccer has
become Major League
Soccer's next expansion
franchise.
MLS commissioner Don
Garber announced the
franchise agreement with
Orlando City on Tuesday
at a community celebra-
tion near the site where a
new downtown stadium
will be constructed.
Once construction on
the $84 million, 18,000-
seat stadium is complet-
ed, the team will begin
playing in MLS in the 2015
season.
Orlando City, the
league's 21st franchise, is
the latest of four new fran-
chises that Garber said
the league plans to add by
2020. New York is getting
a team in 2015 and David
Beckham is planning a
team in Miami....
Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat trick
to lift Portugal into the World Cup
over Sweden, and France overturned
a two-goal deficit to top Ukraine for
a berth in the 32-nation field for next
year's tournament in Brazil. Croatia,
Greece, Ghana and Algeria also quali-
fied. The final berth will be determined
tonight when Uruguay defends a 5-0
advantage against Jordan....
In Vienna, the U.S. slumped to a
1 -0 defeat in a friendly against Austria,
finishing its record-setting year with a
fourth loss in 23 matches.

to the NewYork third baseman last
summer. On the 10th day of the
hearing, which started in September,
Levine was asked a series of questions
by Rodriguez lawyer Joseph Tacopina,
according to a person with knowledge
of the proceeding. The person spoke
on condition of anonymity because the
proceedings are confidential ...
The Florida Department of Health

Ryan Braun and other players.

Court preserves ACC

court preserved a lawsuit that could
force the University of Maryland to

sued Maryland after the school said
last November it was leaving for the
Big Ten Conference. That lawsuit came
after the ACC voted to increase the exit
penalty to three times the conference's
operating budget, which the appeals
court calculated at nearly $52.3 million.

Sophomore leaves


his smarting


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
STILLWATER, Okla.-
Marcus Smart looked right
at home in his return to
the national stage.
Smart scored a
career-high 39 points
and No. 7 Oklahoma
State raced past No. 11
Memphis for a 101-80
win on Tuesday night in a
one-sided matchup of top
teams.
Smart, who bypassed
the NBA draft after last
season's early exit from
the NCAA tournament,
had 26 points in the first
half and finished with five
3-pointers.
The sophomore was
11 of 21 from the floor -
easily topping his previous
career high of 28 points,
which he set last season
against Oklahoma.
Markel Brown added 20
points and Brian Williams
15 for the Cowboys (4-0).
Nick King had 23 points
for Memphis, and Shaq
Goodwin finished with 13.
The Tigers (1-1) shot 41.2
percent (28 of 68).
Memphis played
once before the trip to
Stillwater, a 95-69 home
win over Austin Peay, and
appeared ill-prepared
for the hostile road
environment.


No. 2 Kansas 86, lona 66:
In Lawrence, Kan., Perry Ellis scored 21
points, freshman Joel Embiid had 16
points and 13 rebounds in a breakout
performance, and Kansas used a big
late run to bury lona. Andrew Wiggins
added 13 points and NaadirTharpe
had 10 assists for the Jayhawks (3-0),
who got off to a sluggish start after
their high-profile triumph over Duke
last week.

No. 3 Louisville 87,
Hartford 48: In Louisville, Ky.,
Montrezl Harrell had 20 points and
nine rebounds to lead Louisville to the
win in the Hall of Fame Tipoff. Russ
Smith added 14 points as the Cardinals
(4-0) extended their winning streak
to 20 games dating to last season's
run to the national title. Chris Jones
and reserve Chane Behanan added 11
points apiece.

No.4 Kentucky 105, UT
Arlington 76: In Lexington, Ky.,
James Young scored 26 points, Julius
Randle had 22 points and 10 rebounds,
and Kentucky (4-1) cruised to victory.

No. 6 Duke 83, East
Carolina 74: In Durham, N.C.,
Rodney Hood scored a career-high 30
points to help Duke get the win in the
NIT Season Tipoff. Freshman Jabari
Parker had 21 points and nine rebounds
for the Blue Devils (4-1), who survived
a tougher-than-expected fight from
the underdog Pirates (4-1) to improve
to 24-2 all-time in the early season
tournament. Duke led by a single point


with about 7 minutes left but stayed
in front and did enough in the final 2/
minutes.

No. 12 Wisconsin 103,
North Dakota 85: In Madison,
Wis., Frank Kaminsky scored a
school-record 43 points, and Wisconsin
shot a blistering 59 percent from
the field. Sam Dekker added 19 for
the Badgers (4-0), who overcame a
career-high 37 points 26 in the first
half- from North Dakota's Troy Huff.

Bethune-Cookman 98,
Trinity 55: In Daytona Beach,
Allan Dempster scored a career-high
22 points guiding Bethune-Cookman
to a commanding victory over Trinity.
Bethune-Cookman (2-2) had four
players with double-digit scoring,
including a career-high 19 points from
Clemmye Owens.

WOMEN
No. 8 Maryland 87,
George Washington 51:
In College Park, Md., Alyssa Thomas
had 18 points and 14 rebounds, and
Maryland never trailed in a rout of
poor-shooting George Washington.

No. 23 Georgia 72,
Furman 48: In Athens, Ga.,
Georgia used a 26-2 run spanning
the first and second halves en route
to victory as three players scored in
double figures for the Bulldogs, led by a
career-high 21 points and a career-high
six steals from Tiaria Griffin.

MIAMI -For the
Miami Heat, the third
quarter was pretty much
the whole story. Chris
Bosh tumbled over some
courtside seats on one
end, and LeBron James
apologized to a few fans
during one particularly
frustrating moment on the
other.
In between, Mario
Chalmers gave the Heat all
the boost they needed.
Chalmers went on
a personal 9-0 run in
a 39-second span of
the period, Bosh led all
scorers with 19 points on
8-for-9 shooting, and the
Heat went on to beat the
Atlanta Hawks 104-88 on
Tuesday night for their
fourth straight victory.
Ray Allen scored 17,
while Chalmers had 12 of
his 14 in the third quarter
for the Heat, who were
without Dwyane Wade
for the second time this
season. James finished 13
points, six rebounds and
five assists for the Heat
(8-3).
Mike Scott scored 15

bounds for Atlanta, which

From an older Kobe,



glimpsing Kobe of old


FROM WIRE REPORTS
LOS ANGELES -It was
strange, a media circus
more suitable for a playoff
series in May, but this was
November and the Los
Angeles Lakers were pur-
suing only a .500 record.
Kobe Bryant practiced
again, though, the second
time in four days, and
didn't flinch afterward
when asked if he could
envision returning to game
action this month.
"Yeah, I can," Bryant said
Tuesday, 221 days after
sustaining a torn Achilles.
He took part in a full-
court scrimmage that was
closed to reporters and
then a half-court, five-on-
five that was open to the


media.
Bryant looked active,
making fadeaways over
NickYoung and Xavier
Henry near the top of the
key, scoring on a backdoor
layup and findingWesley
Johnson for a layup. He
jumped but didn't dunk
during the open practice.
"I'm just trying to do
what I normally do, figure
some things out about my
game what can I do at
this stage, what I can't do
at this stage," he said.
There was rust, most
notably when he air-balled
an open three-point shot.
Some of his passes were
deflected or stolen.
It's not unexpected. He
hadn't played since April
12 and he's 35, coming off


a serious injury.

FSU backup QB's primary role: Be prepared


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
TALLAHASSEE -
Florida State backup
quarterback Sean Maguire
has gone from being an
afterthought to one of the
most valuable players on
the Seminoles' roster in a
span of 10 days.
He began the season
as the No. 3 quarterback,
but moved up when Jacob
Coker had season-ending
knee surgery last Tuesday.
On Wednesday, the
sexual assault investiga-
tion of Jameis Winston
became public and
Maguire's value increased
exponentially.
One injury or one
development in the case
will make Maguire the
starting quarterback of
the 10-0, second-ranked


Seminoles.
"It's a different mindset,
obviously," Maguire said.
"From being two plays
away (to) one play away,
it's a lot different. I just try
to prepare a lot more."
Maguire, a redshirt
freshman, took his first
career snap two weeks
ago against Wake Forest
after Coker tore his me-
niscus. He started the sec-
ond half against Syracuse
with the No. 1 offense
after the Seminoles led
38-0, and completed 3
of 5 passes for 21 yards
with a touchdown and an
interception.
"Very pleased with his
first time out there in that
situation with the (start-
ers) in the huddle," coach
Jimbo Fisher said. "Very

Carolina's Luke Kuechly blocks New England's Rob Gronkowski
on the final play of Monday night's game.



No dispute




for Patriots


By HOWARD ULMAN
ASSOCIATED PRESS
FOXBOROUGH, Mass.
- His arms finally free,
Rob Gronkowski clapped
when he saw the yellow
flag in the end zone. The
Patriots would have one
more chance to win.
Seconds later, that
chance was lost.
On Tuesday, Bill
Belichick wouldn't discuss
the decision to wave off
the penalty on the final
play when Carolina's Luke
Kuechly wrapped his arms
around Gronkowski as
Tom Brady's pass sailed
toward them.
There was nothing New
England's coach could do
about the 24-20 loss to
the Panthers on Monday
night. Better to focus on
his second straight prime-
time challenge Sunday
night against the Denver
Broncos.
"I don't really have any
comment to add about
the officiating or any of
those calls," Belichick said
during a conference call.
"If you have any questions
on that, you can talk to
the league office and the
officiating department.
Let them give their
explanation."
Or you can listen to
Patriots defensive end Rob
Ninkovich.
"Both arms are being
wrapped around the
receiver as the ball's in
the air," he said Tuesday
on WEEI radio. "A foul's
a foul. No matter what it
is, the ball's there. It's not
like the ball's 20 feet over
his head or it lands on the


5-yard line or something."
With the ball at the
Carolina 18 and a lineman
bearing down on him,
Brady didn't step into the
throw as he usually does.
The underthrown pass
was intercepted by Robert
Lester 4 yards into the end
zone. Gronkowski, about
5 yards behind Lester,
couldn't move toward
the ball with Kuechly
bear-hugging him.
Referee Clete Blakeman
conferred for a few
seconds with back judge
Terrence Miles, who threw
the flag. Miles shook his
head. Then Blakeman
said there was no penalty
and the game was over.
Later, Blakeman told two
pool reporters that Miles
had called defensive pass
interference but the ball
was uncatchable.
Gronkowski's elation
was gone. Brady's anger
emerged as he talked to
Blakeman while leaving
the field.
Even if the penalty
stood, the ball would
have been placed at the
1 and the Patriots still
would have needed a
touchdown.
"I don't make the calls
or the rules," Brady said.
"I wish it wouldn't have
come down to that. I think
there were plenty of plays
we could've made."
The Patriots (7-3) will
have to make a lot more of
them against the Broncos
(9-1), the NFL's highest
scoring team, and Peyton
Manning, who leads the
league with 34 touchdown
passes in 10 games.


critical for him to get out
there and do that."
Fisher and teammates
rave about Maguire's
confidence and
competitiveness.
Maguire is likely to get
significant playing time
against Idaho (1-9) on
Saturday. The Vandals
have held only one team
to less than 37 points
this season, and that was
against 1-9 Temple.
"I'm excited, especially
knowing you're going to
get a lot more playing
time," he said. "First
time's out of the way, so
now I'm just going to get
better and have fun out
there."

"There's no timeframe,"
said long snapper John

representative. "They're

The suit seeks medical monitoring

class-action status, but is limited to
players who did not play in the NFL.
Similar suits have been filed

three possessions?
Would the Bucs be 5-5
today?
What if they had closed
the door, just one more
time, against Seattle? What
if the MRSA outbreak had
never happened?
What if?
Here, in these giddy
days of two in a row, this
is what back-to-back wins
have earned for the Bucs.
Just like that, you are able
to look differently at that
horrible first half of the
season.
That's how it works.
When a team is losing,
everything is miserable,
and all you can see is
ugly. But when a team is
winning, you can also look
back and see the games
that got away.
These days, it is possible
to wonder what would
have happened to the
psyche of this team if it
had gotten off to a better
start. If they beat the
Jets, which they should
have, or the Saints, which
they could have, or the
Cardinals, which they
might have, how would
that have affected them in
other games?
Oh, you can drive
yourself crazy playing this
game. All bad teams do
it, and usually, it offers
up a lot more frustration
that it does consolation.
Spin things hard enough,
and everyone knows you
can turn the 0-16 Lions
of 2008 into a wild-card
contender.
Let's be honest: the
NFL is a league of close
games, and bad teams
often try to make them
look better than the final
result. Houston is also 2-8,
but has lost four games
by a total of 10 points.
Minnesota is 2-8, but has
lost three by a total of nine
points. So what? The world
is filled with teams on their
way to nowhere trying to
imagine where they would
be if they had won this
close game or that one.
In the NFL, no one gets a
mulligan.
Let's be honest. This
Bucs team was never
going to challenge for the
championship. But could
it have been a .500 team?
Well, maybe.
That's how much the feel
of a season has changed
around here. Will it last?
Who knows? Detroit will
be a handful on Sunday,
The 49ers are ahead. The
Panthers are ahead. The
Saints are ahead.
For now, however,
things feel as good around
the Bucs as they have for
a while.
They've only won two.
But it's been in a row.
Yippee.


And that's the thing.
When you have been
living underground, even
a small hill feels like a
mountain.

Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask blocks a shot in the second
period of Tuesday's match against the New York Rangers at
Madison Square Garden in New York.






Rask helps






Bruins stop






Rangers


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEWYORK-Tuukka
Rask made 43 saves -
including a stop on a
first-period penalty shot
- and the Boston Bruins
spoiled the return of New
York forward Rick Nash
in a 2-1 victory over the
Rangers on Tuesday night.
Rask, playing on back-
to-back days for the first
time this season, denied
Chris Kreider's penalty
shot and turned away
everything else except for
Derick Brassard's pow-
er-play goal in the second.
Shawn Thornton and
Daniel Paille, with his 10th
career short-handed goal,
provided all the offense
Rask needed in the second
period as the Bruins (14-6-
1) finished a 2-1 road trip
after winning at Carolina
on Monday.
Henrik Lundqvist
stopped 20 shots, but
most of the action was
at the other end. The
Rangers have only two
goals in three games, split-
ting a pair of 1-0 decisions
in the previous two. New
York has dropped three in
a row at home.
Rask was still sharp
in the third period
when the Bruins killed a
cross-checking penalty
against Brad Marchand,
who shoved Mats
Zuccarello from behind
into the boards in front of
the Rangers bench.
Nash skated well and
had several scoring
chances in his return from
a 17-game absence caused
by a concussion sustained
in New York's third game
of the season on Oct. 8.

Predators 2, Red Wings
0: In Detroit, rookie goalie Marek
Mazanec made 27 saves to earn his
first shutout, and Nashville extended
Detroit's losing streak to seven games.
Shea Weber and Gabriel Bourque
scored for the Predators, who have
won two straight after losing four in
a row.
The Red Wings' home slide reached
eight games (0-6-2). They have gone
seven games without a win overall
(0-5-2) for the first time since the
last seven games of the 2002 regular
season, according to STATS. That team
went on to hoist the Stanley Cup.


Flyers 5, Senators 2: In
Philadelphia, KimmoTimonen had
a goal and two assists, Steve Mason
made 32 saves and Philadelphia beat
Ottawa.
Claude Giroux, Sean Couturier,
Wayne Simmonds and Adam Hall also
scored for the Flyers, who are 4-0-1
in their last five games after a 4-10-1
start.
Clarke MacArthur and Kyle Turris
both had a power-play goal for the
Senators, who have lost two in a row.
Timonen and Simmonds scored 23
seconds apart to snap a 2-all tie in the
third period. Mason stoned Turris on a
penalty shot with 5:06 left to preserve
the two-goal cushion.

Canadiens 6, Wild 2: In
Montreal, Max Pacioretty had a natural
hat trick in the second period as
Montreal cooled off Minnesota.
Michael Bournival, Daniel Briere and
Alex Galchenyuk also scored for the
Canadiens, who managed only 18 goals
in their previous 11 games.
Nino Niederreiter and Dany Heatley
scored for the Wild, who had won four
straight. They were 7-0-1 in their past
eight games since a 5-1 loss to Chicago
on Oct. 28.
Wild starter Josh Harding, one of the
NHL's three stars for his three wins last
week, was pulled in the second period
after allowing three goals on 19 shots.
Harding has given up three goals only
twice this season, both times to Montreal.
The only other hat trick of Pacioretty's
career came on Feb. 9,2012.

Blues 4, Sabres 1: In Buffalo,
N.Y., Brenden Morrow scored twice
and St. Louis extended its mastery of
Buffalo.
Vladimir Tarasenko and Magnus
Paajarvi also scored and Jaroslav Halak
made 23 saves for the Blues, who have
won 13 of 15 games against Buffalo
since 1999.
Tyler Ennis scored for the Sabres just
10 seconds into the game, but Buffalo
lost after consecutive home wins last
week.
St. Louis is 8-1 in its past nine trips
to Buffalo.

Maple Leafs 5, Islanders
2: In Toronto, Phil Kessel scored two
goals and Toronto beat NewYork for its
second win in a row.
Trevor Smith, Mason Raymond
and David Clarkson also scored for the
Maple Leafs. Jonathan Bernier made 35
saves for the win.
Smith had a goal and two assists,
and Joffrey Lupul had three assists.
Casey Cizikas and Frans Nielsen
scored for NewYork. Kevin Poulin
stopped 19 shots in the loss.

us hard, no matter what
the record."
The Pirates cashed in
quickly when Nicholas
Dunakey one-timed a
pass from Garrett Kelley
in the third minute for a
1-0 lead.
Two minutes later
Sultan got a rebound off a
save by Charlotte goal-
keeper Mekhael Beckford
and rolled it in for a 2-0
lead.
Kelley and Sultan
scored later in the half for
a 4-0 halftime lead.
"We played great as
a team. We could have
scored eight before the
half, but it was a great
game we played," Sultan
said. "Those two goals
helped me out so much."
The Tarpons played
much better at the start
of the second half, getting
scoring opportunities
from Marcus Nash, who
missed a header, to go
along with chances by
Nathan O'Donnell and
Patrick Bluck.
However, Port Charlotte
goalkeepers Mike
Bakogiannis and Parker
Murno made the saves
when they had to and
walked off with the team's
second shutout of the
season.
From there the flood-
gates opened as Williams
scored twice, along with
D.J. Botts on a penalty
kick and Logan Cook,
whose goal in the 73rd
minute brought the game
to an early conclusion.
The Pirates outshot
Charlotte 21-9.
For Charlotte (0-6, 0-4)
it was the second consec-
utive mercy rule loss,
both at home. Despite
that, coach Mike Thomas
remains optimistic his
team will improve.
"We're young and we
still have work to do.
We're going to take every
chance we can in practice
and games to get better,"
Thomas said.

(2-2) were doomed by the second
quarter, during which they
scored only a 3-pointer from
Sarah Lutz, who hit four of them IL
in the game.
Outside of that time Lemon
Bay outscored North Port 42-41.
"We have it in us to do that, but
I think our kids have to see the
ball go in the hole and gain a little
confidence," Lemon Bay coach
Mike Young said. "The second
quarter hurt us ... we let them get
away from us. We cut them down
to two possessions in the second
half, but we could not quite get
that rebound we needed and put
the ball in the hole.
"The inspiration, the intensity,
the energy, the enthusiasm was
much better tonight, we were
just missing that one little push." -
Partly to blame were a lack
of free throw chances. North
Port (3-0) hit 17 of 31, while the ...
Mantas made 4 of 7.
Lemon Bay had a 14-12 lead .
after the first quarter but entered
halftime in a 27-17 hole behind
Smith's nine points. Lutz opened
the third quarter for her team
with consecutive 3s to cinch
the gap to 29-23 but North Port
fended off each run.
The Mantas put together a 9-0
run spanning the end of the third F
and start of the fourth quarters to
pull to within 40-35 but it was as
close as they would come. Smith
hit six consecutive free throws
down the stretch and Frederick
sank a baseline jumper off an
in-bounds play for the final score
of the game.

settle


for draw
By ZACH MILLER
SPORTS WRITER
ENGLEWOOD -Aside
from a five-minute
stretch against Mariner
earlier this season, the
Lemon Bay High School
defense has been nearly
unbreakable this season.
The Manta Rays (1-1-3)
defense shut out South
Fort Myers on Tuesday
night, their third shutout
in five games this season.
But unfortunately for
Lemon Bay, poor offense
has also been a trend this
season, and it was again
Tuesday as the game
ended in a 0-0 tie. It's
the thrid time the Manta
Rays (1-1-3) have tied a
game this season and the
second time it's been a
scoreless tie.
A key component of
Lemon Bay's defensive
success this season has
been being able to stay
in front of attackers and
not let any opponents get
off a shot near the net.
That was the case again
as Lemon Bay kept South
Fort Myers from taking a
shot inside the box.
"'Anything that's really
coming at us is from a
distance and I'll take that
all day long," Manta Rays
coach Zenon Luzniak
said.
The offensive woes
can be traced back to the
loss of Corey Kern and
Owen Berry from last
year's team. Kern was the
team's leading goal scorer
and Berry was the team's
leading assist man last
season. Five games into
the season, the Manta
Rays haven't had anyone
step up and fill those
voids. They've been shut-
out three times, and have
scored just three goals so
far this season.
On Tuesday night, the
Manta Rays were also
hurt by penalties. They
were given four yellow
cards, including three in
the second half, of a game
that was testy from the
start and slightly out of
control by the end. Three
cards were assessed to
South Fort Myers as well
as the both teams played
very physically and spent
energy jawing at the
referees.
"We went down to their
level and played their
kind of game," Luzniak
said. "That's not where
we should've gone. You
go and try to play your
game, but when all this
is going on it gets out of
hand and you can't play
your game."
Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140
orzmiller@sun-heraldxom.

which resulted in Milo's
climactic save and the
other which Tyre couldn't
get off a shot.
"If only we'd been as
aggressive in the first half
as we had in the second,"
Charlotte coach Toni
Ivankovic said. "But we're
working through some
growing pains."
The Tarpons only have
a handful of seniors
- including all-area
midfielder Heidi Ruth,
who didn't play in the
contest.
But Ivankovic wasn't
worried, keeping her eyes


on the team's long-term
goal.
"The district tour-
nament is in January,"
Ivankovic said. "This is all
just working toward that."

The Last Chapter Coffee House


E/IM'/C/' November 20 -26, 2013


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Usually, when you hear the term "Brew
Crew", it's in reference to a crowd of beer
drinkers. In the case of the group that
meets at The Last Chapter Coffee House
and Cafe on Wednesdays, though, it refers
to a different beverage of choice.
"The Brew Crew is mostly just local
people who get together and talk about


1I


old times;' said Karen Alexander, manager
of the coffee shop. "But they always
welcome in new people, too."
That neighborhood gathering place is
just what The Last Chapter has aimed to be
for the past eight years. Seating consists
of comfortable sofas and cafe tables, and
there is even a fireplace and bookshelves
in the front room, giving it a feeling of
being in a friend's parlor a friend who
serves tasty drinks and light culinary fare

to guests, though.
"We have soups, sandwiches and
salads, which are all made to order and
fresh;' Alexander said. "And we also have
homemade ice cream, made fresh here in
the shop."
And although The Last Chapter has
delicious baked goods like muffins, bagels,
Danishes and freshly-baked scones, what
would a true coffee shop be without
all kinds of versions of the hot and cold
beverages?
"We have lots of specialty drinks, like
mochas, lattes and different coffees and
flavors;' Alexander said. "One of our most
popular ones is the Mocha Creamice, which
is a drink with mocha chocolate, ice and
milk that's blended together."
The shop is open from breakfast time
until early evening, so there are also
some menu items that are a little more
substantial. Alexander says that the chef
salad, with romaine lettuce, ham, turkey,
peppers, tomatoes, cucumber, eggs,
bacon, onion and cheese with dressing
on the side is one of her most requested
dishes.
"Our most popular sandwich is the Little


Miami Cuban;' she said. "It has pork, ham,
pickles, mustard, mayonnaise and sauce,
and is served on pressed panini bread."
The Last Chapter asserts itself as a good
neighbor by offering use of its conference
room, which seats up to 35 people, at no
charge. The only stipulation is that if you
require food or beverages, you purchase
them from the coffee shop. Over the years,
the room has played host to meetings,
birthday parties, anniversaries and other
special occasions.
Alexander says that is all a part of
showing thanks to a community that has
supported them during tough times and
slow seasons.
"All of our personnel are friendly, and we
go out of our way to make our customers
feel welcome;' she said. "We don't really
call this a restaurant we call it a coffee
shop. It just has a nice atmosphere to it."
The Last Chapter Coffee Shop and Cafe
is at 15 West Oak Street in Arcadia, and is
open Monday through Friday, from
7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, from 9:30
a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, from 11 a.m.
to 5 p.m. For more information, visit the

In July 2012, Josh and wife, April bought
Danny's Deep Creek Pub, now known as Emil's
Sports Bar and Grill, 24901 Sandhill Blvd.,
#14, in Punta Gorda."lt was a big decision.
But I felt I had to try it, and had high hopes to

Myakka Pines Golf Club:
Unspoiled, Olde Florida


When was the last time you played golf in a truly natural
setting? Do you enjoy hitting your golf ball and strolling down
fairways lined by trees and lakes rather than houses and
pools? Englewood is a quiet, rural area, which is why so many
former Snow Birds choose to live here full time. Myakka Pines
Golf Club is Englewood serenity on steroids! In any round of


Pines Golf Club today offers 27 holes of tournament-quality-
conditions, challenging, strategic and fun golf. As a GOLF
CLUB rather than a Country Club, the focus and financial
investment is all toward the golf course. Greens were
reconstructed in 2008 with mini-verde bermuda. Each of the
three nines is different and challenging in its own right. And,
twenty-seven holes provides the flexibility to accommodate
smooth flow on the course by melding tee time and turning
golfers based on which course has the best availability at the
time. Mickie Zada, the Club's General Manager said iWe are
able to ensure excellent rounds of golf time as well as
enjoyable playing experiences.

passes include golf cart fees. All members receive free driving
range access and handicap system. Extensive practice areas
are available including chipping and putting greens and driving

Escape Plan I Runtime: 1 hr.
56 min. I Rated R for violence
and language throughout.
Action superstars Sylvester Stallone
and Arnold Schwarzenegger team up
in the action-thriller"Escape Plan." Ray
Breslin (Stallone), the world's fore-
most authority on structural security,
agrees to take on one last job: breaking
out of an ultra-secret, high-tech
facility called "The Tomb." But when
he is wrongly imprisoned, he must
recruit fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer
(Schwarzenegger) to help devise a
daring, nearly impossible plan to escape
from the most protected and fortified
prison ever built.
Captain Phillips I Runtime:
2 hrs. 13 min. I Rated PG-13
for sustained intense
sequences of menace, some
violence with bloody images,


,kitiptto


and for substance use.
Captain Phillips is a multilayered
examination of the 2009 hijacking
of the U.S. container ship Maersk
Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates.
It is through director Paul Green-
grass' distinctive lens simultane-
ously a pulse-pounding thriller, and a
complex portrait of the myriad effects
of globalization. The film focuses on
the relationship between the Alabama's
commanding officer, Captain Richard
Phillips (two-time Academy Award-
winner Tom Hanks), and the Somali
pirate captain, Muse (Barkhad Abdi),
who takes him hostage. Phillips and
Muse are set on an unstoppable colli-
sion course when Muse and his crew
target Phillips'unarmed ship; in the
ensuing standoff, 145 miles off the
Somali coast, both men will find them-
selves at the mercy of forces beyond
their control.
Gravity I Runtime: not
stated. I Rated PG-13 for
intense perilous sequences,
some disturbing images and
brief strong language.
Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a
medical engineer on her first shuttle
mission. Her commander is veteran
astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George
Clooney), helming his last flight before
retirement. Then, on a routine space
walk, disaster strikes the shuttle
is destroyed, leaving Ryan and Matt
stranded in deep space with no link to
Earth and no hope of rescue. As their
fear turns to panic, they realize that
the only way home may be to venture
further into space.
Cloudy With a Chance of
Meatballs 2 I Runtime: 1 hr.
35 min. I Rated PG for mild
rude humor.
"Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
2" picks up where Sony Pictures Anima-
tion's mouth-watering comedy left off.
Inventor Flint Lockwood thought he
saved the world when he destroyed his
most infamous invention a machine
that turned water into food causing
cheeseburger rain and spaghetti
tornadoes.

Months ago, members of Englewood's
Lemon Bay Garden Club began preparing
unique crafts, propagating native plants
and selecting unique gardens to feature
on their Fall Garden Tour scheduled for
this weekend.
"It's a two-day, three-tiered event;'
explained Gail Choate, who has helped
organize and publicize the group's fund-
raising events for the past 10 years. "What
locals and visitors may not realize;' adds
Choate, "is that the club owns a historic
property on the corner of Yale and Cedar
Street, and we open our gardens as part
of the annual tour. Our beautiful butterfly
garden is located on the west side of the
clubhouse, and visitors are invited to stroll
along Woods Walk, view the new cactus/
succulent garden and rest on eco friendly
benches before heading to a colorful
display of bromeliads."
A special "Shade House" built in 1982
allows members to grow plants to sell
during the Fall Tour. In the spacious club-
house members are offering an amazing
selection of unique hand-crafted cards,

At the Ag Fest, businesses, organiza-
tions and individuals from across Flor-

And there is an abundance of nature in the
Tippecanoe Park, which has over 350 acres of
natural Florida wild-lands containing nesting
osprey and bald eagles, historical middens
dating back 2,500 years and more than 100
varieties of birds, including a family of rare
Florida scrub jays.
Norton says that race participants will see a
lot of the park, especially the 10K runners, and
they will also encounter quite a few obstruc-


tions.
"There are at least 10 obstacles on the
course, and there may be a couple of surprises
as well;' he said. "There's a wall, a mud pit, a
culvert, muddy tires, a spiderweb and a lot
more. We'll even have a water cannon. And the

balls."This film helped in furthering his
spotlight as a unique comedian.
Michael was also heard, but not seen,
when he gave the voice to Stripe, the evil
little creature, in another hit movie "Grem-
lins.' He also did voice-overs for
Disney and Universal Studios
in such rides as "Back to the
Future"and "Terminator'."
You can hearWinslow in
the television hits "Robo
Chicken"and "Family Guy;"
and you can't miss ggk


him on the Geico commercials.
In the spring of 2008 he graced the red
carpet premiere of"National Lampoons
RoboDoc' In 2009 He made a children's
DVD with Bill Cosby. Winslow now has
more in the works, possibly including a
new Police Academy movie. Don't miss
your chance to see his amazing one man
show at Visani. His show is a mixture of
sound affects, stand up comedy, voice
impersonations and movie reenactments
all with amazing sound. The show is typi-
cally rated adult clean. Michael is proud to
be a funny comedian that does not rely on
profanity for humor.
The cost for the show is $20. All shows
start at 8 p.m. Visani will be
serving dinner starting
at 5 p.m. Tickets can be

ROAD TRIPGO


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Nothing beats a trip to SeaWorld to get
up close to the park's penguins, sea turtles,
dolphins, whales and more but SeaWorld's
new AnimalVision on-habitat cameras are
great for keeping up with new friends -
especially the penguins in Antarctica: Empire
of the Penguin.
The new on-habitat cameras stream live
video 24/seven to home, hotel room or
wherever you might be with your Smart-
Phone, tablet or computer. You can even
snap a photo while you watch and save it for
yourself or share it via your favorite social
media site.
But as good as this camera app is, a trip
into the park is still the better choice when-
ever possible.
Only in the park can you actually take a
voyage to SeaWorld Orlando's new journey
to Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin where
you can ride through the cold and windy
continent on the park's new simulator. Actu-
ally, there are two variations of the ride. One
is "wild"and geared for those fearless folks
who love thrill rides and are at least
48 inches tall and in good physical shape.
The other is for those who are 42 inches


tall or taller and want a gentler or"mild"
experience. Puck the Penguin will be your
ride guide.
Either way, you will get up close to the
penguins and their specially constructed icy
habitat which is kept at a chilly 30 degrees.
That probably is like constant summertime
for them.
The warnings for"wild" riders are similar
to those at other parks offering extreme
rides. Those who are pregnant, have back
or neck problems, high blood pressure,
are prone to motion sickness or who have
had recent surgery, should opt for the mild
version of the ride. Riders will experience
cold temperatures on both rides.
To get even closer, while in the park, take
the Penguins-Up-Close Tour, where you can
interact with and even touch a live penguin.
There are four species of penguins cavorting
in the 40-degree water and tromping on the
man-made snow in the 30-degree attraction
at SeaWorld Orlando. Four ice machines spew
out 20,000 pounds of ice daily as penguin
keepers distribute 350 pounds of"restau-
rant-quality fish" (according to SeaWorld
Orlando) to more than 200 resident
penguins. Needless to say, the attraction was
especially popular during the record heat of
this past summer.


The area has a new restaurant, Expedition
Cafe, and new Coca-Cola Freestyle beverage
- South Pole Chill, available only at South
Pole Beverages, according to a park release.
There are four breeds of penguins. All are
dressed in their formal best- black and
white but the similarity ends there for
they vary in side and in the trimmings. The
smallest ones even have fringed hair atop
their heads and the king species has a yellow
gold trim. Some swim faster than others
but they all score high on the "cute" rating
machine.
Now through Dec. 20, visit SeaWorld
Orlando any weekday for just $50 per person,
a $32 savings for adults and $24 savings for
children 12 and younger.

What happens when a group of mature
Southern Belles decide to turn an aban-
doned church into a day spa in Eden Falls,
Georgia?
Sugar Lee Thompkins, the group's
leader, tries to keep her girlfriends
focused, and the results are hysterical.
Veteran actor and director, Ron Bupp,
has assembled a "true ensemble cast" for
"Hallelujah Girls;'," the Charlotte Players
Main Stage production scheduled for Nov.
21-24 at the Charlotte County Cultural
Center Theater in Port Charlotte. "In
'Hallelujah Girls' there's no leading actor,";'
said Bupp. "Selecting an ensemble cast of
six women and two men is like planning a
fine dinner, as characters must mesh and
complement each other."
The play, written by Jessie Jones,
Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten who
wrote "Dixie Swim Club" and episodes
of TV's "Golden Girls," takes place during
the course of a year. As Sugar Lee, actress
Blair Lovejoy attempts to convince the
group that "It's never too late for us to
become the women we were meant to be".
Lovejoy acted and sang in the Charlotte
Players' productions of "Annie;' "Mame"
and "Calamity Jane." A community activist,
Lovejoy is a coordinator of OneBlood and
also president-elect of the Murdock Rotary
Club.
Carlene Travis, played by Sue Strope,

buried three husbands, she's given up
on romance. Strope has appeared in the

LIVE MUSIC G O


Bryan Lee to perform at


Englewoods on Dearborn


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT


Born in 1943 in Two Rivers, Wisconsin, Bryan
Lee had lost his eyesight and was considered to
be legally blind by the age of eight
But you don't need to be able to see to
develop an appreciation for music. Growing
up, Lee, who will be appearing with his band
tomorrow in Englewood, listened to WLAC
in Nashville and
became enamored
with the sound of
the blues he heard
on the radio. By the
time hewas 15 in
the late fifties, Lee
was playing guitar in
a variety of rock and
blues-rock bands,
and in his late teens he befriended legendary
guitarslinger Luther Allison.
In 1981, Lee and his band opened for Muddy
Waters at Summerfest in Milwaukee, and he
got a chance to talkwith his hero backstage.
After Lee told Muddy how honored he was to
be opening forsuch a legend, Waters told the
youngster,"Bryan, stay with this. One day you're
going to be a living legend:'Those words of
encouragement would become an inspiration to
Bryan Lee throughout his career.
By 1982, he had moved to the blues mecca of
New Orleans, and became a full time resident
Lee's recognition in the Crescent City began with
a long residency at the Old Absinthe House in
the French Quarter. One of the formative blues
guitarists who caught his act was a vouna


KennyWayne Shepherd, whose time sitting
in with Lee's band proved to be a revelatory
experience for him. Many years later, Shepherd
would return the favor by including Lee in his
documentary, "10 Days Out: Blues from the
Backroads."
Lee has been called a "New Orleans Blues
lnstitution"and is also known as the "Braille
Blues Daddy." 'He has even played the prestigious
New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival for the
past 26 years, and
)i G Oon Sept 17 released
his most recent CD,
and his first on an
American label,
called "Play One
for Me' Special
ismainguests on the CD
indude blues singer/
harmonica player
Kim Wilson and Johnny Moeller, of the Fabulous
Thunderbirds.
On this tourwith his Blues Power Band, Lee
is making the rounds of the state of Florida, and
will be performing at Englewood on Dearborn,
as part of their Blues Underthe Stars series.
Appearing along with Lee will be New Orleans
native John Perkins, who plays drums in the
band, BrentJohnson on the guitarand Nick Hem
on bass guitar.
For someone who could be considered to be
at a disadvantage because of his lack of sight,
Lee has not only overcome that obstacle, but has
excelled and become a star in the blues music
industry. And that, according to him, is a gift.
"The Good Lord gave me this gift and I want
to share it,' he said.

Sweet Inspirations
"Little Deuce Coupe"(Beach Boys, 1963). Obviously it's a car song and the deuce coupe
is a 1932 Ford coupe. Itfs called a "deuce" because of the "2" in 1932. The song was written
for the Beach Boys by Roger Christian, an L.A. disc jockey and car buff..."Soul Man"
(Sam & Dave, 1967). The song was written by Isaac Hayes after he heard the term "soul,"
which was not popular at the time. It caught on after this hit and was later parodied by
comedians John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd.
"Love Will Keep Us Together" (The Captain and Tennille, 1975). A song perfect for this
show biz couple, it was actually written by Neil Sedaka about his long time songwriting
collaboration with childhood buddy Howard Greenfield... "Chuck E's in Love"(Rickie Lee
Jones, 1979). Jones wrote this jazzy pop tune about a colorful character who was working
in the kitchen of The Troubador, an LA. folk club.
"Dance Hall Days"(Wang Chung, 1984). It's mostly a song about growing up and much
of its inspiration comes from the book"Lolita... Somebody Watching Me"(Rockwell,
1984). Even though there's some paranoia and inspiration from George Orwell's book
"1984,"the song was actually based on the writer's incident with a neighborand a dog.



5M(il[? Ma)&
Last week, this musical trivia question was asked: Singer/songwriter Randy Newman
has had album success along with numerous film scores. Name his only hit song, from
1977, that was controversial at the time.
Answer: "Short People.' The first reader to answer correctly was
Brad Marian of Rotonda West.
This Week's Question: Which one of these groups did not perform at the Woodstock
Festival in 1969? Grateful Dead, The Who, Sly & the Family Stone, The Doors, The Band,
Creedence Clearwater Revival.
If you think you have the right answer, email it to upbeat@sun-herald.com no later than
noon this Friday, and we'll publish your name as the winner with the correct answer in next

Thanks for a great
Parkside Festival
he weather may not have cooperat-
ed fully, but the Parkside Fall Festival
still brought together food and retail
vendors, nonprofits and entertainment
to the back of the Promenades Mall for
a great little get-together Saturday. The
festival, which took about a year to plan,
was a joint effort between Team Parkside
and Charlotte County. It took dozens
of people from both sides to make the
festival happen, but there were some who
went above and beyond to make this
event successful: Event chair Pat Garriton
and President Susan Swanson from Team
Parkside, Claudia Richardson from the
Port Charlotte Library, Jerry Mix from
Fawcett Memorial Hospital and Mike
Koening from Charlotte County.
There's another group of people who
were instrumental to the success of the
festival the residents who attended the
event to support their community. So to
everyone from vendors, volunteers and
entertainers to those who just showed up
to enjoy a day outside (which was much
more enjoyable in the afternoon, I will
admit) thanks! Hopefully, we'll see
everyone again next year.
Community Snapshots
You may have noticed a feature that I've
been running for a while Community
Snapshots. I receive many more than what
you see in the Port Charlotte Herald, and
some of them wait in the queue a long
time before seeing print. It's important to
email me the correct type and size of file
and the caption all in one email.
The photo needs to be an attachment
as a JPEG file at least 1,000 MB. I get a lot
of pictures that are under 100K, which is
the size of a postage stamp and complete-
ly unusable. The other important part of
the photo is the caption (which we call a
cudline) and it must include the first and
last names of everyone in the picture from
left to right (Who), as well asWhat, When,
Where, Why plus contact information
if applicable. Remember, the difference
between a scrapbook and a newspaper
is that no one has to understand your
scrapbook but you; a newspaper has to
make sense to all the readers who were
not able to be there. Clip out the blue box
on page 2 to use as a reference next time
you send us a photo.

El Jobean Community League fundraiser draws a full house


HERALD PHOTO BY NICOLE NOLES
From left, Margaret Vento sat with Mildred Pryor, 90, from Viscaya Lakes during the Awesome Autumn
Tea held at the El Jobean Community Center on Nov. 8. The Awesome Autumn Tea served about 90
people, and helped raise funds for maintenance of the Community Center along with outreach programs
for the holidays.

PORT CHARLOTTE HERALD EDITOR
The El Jobean Community
League's fundraising teas are the
talk of the town in El Jobean,
anyway. Every community
group should be this lucky to
attract a full house for each
event, although if you saw the
sumptuous spread awaiting
the tea goers, it would be easy
to see it's not luck at all. Mix
equal amounts of hard working
volunteers to the donations of
all supplies from a generous
community, and the end result
is a packed house each time.
"As soon as our flyers go
out (in the mail), we sell out,"
Pat Spence said.
The Awesome Autumn Tea
on Nov. 8 was the sixth tea in
five years that the Community
League has sponsored. Along
with food and socializing, there
were gifts to be won, so most of
the attendees kept busy filling
out tickets to put by the raffle
items they had their eye on.

ADVOCATE'S CORNER


Celebrating Thanksgiving in the woods


By DELORES SAVAS
HERALD CORRESPONDENT
While many area residents
will be sitting around a loaded
Thanksgiving Day table graced with
an aromatic baked ham or a turkey
with stuffing and all the trimmings
with family and friends, many
others will not be as fortunate.
Leslie Taylor and Bob White are
just two of hundreds of people who
will not be spending the holiday
indoors, because they are among
the 400 to 500 people in the county
that live in wooded areas through-
out the area.
Taylor, 49, has been living in
a tent for the past eight months
with June James. It wasn't always
like this for Taylor. At one time she
owned a trailer lost it when she


was trying to help a friend had
a family, and had a job, but due
to many other circumstances
along the way she found herself
homeless.
"I had no place to go," Taylor
said. "I stayed at the Homeless
Coalition for the 60 allotted days
and my time ran out. The woods
were the only place for me to go.
I could have moved back to the
shelter after 60 days, but I did not
want to leave my friend, June,
alone in the woods as there is a lot
of violence against women there.
Recently, there was an incident
where I was hit, so we moved to
another camp site."
Naturally, she doesn't want to
stay there forever.

'Hallelujah Girls' performances start Thursday


HERALD PHOTOS BY BETSY WILLIAMS
It is the very white sexy legs of Bobby Dwane played by Gene Callan that has the Hallelujah Girls so excited in this scene from their
upcoming show.


Charlotte Players is once again bringing an hysterical
comedy to the Charlotte County Cultural Center this
week. Set in Georgia, "Hallelujah Girls" by Jessie Jones
will show at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday,
with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday. Cream on her face,
Katy Malloy sits in the Spa-Dee-Dah day spa/salon chair
sharing life stories with her stylist.


Fighting back the giggles, Carlene, played by
Sue Strope, and Porter, played by Steve Pigna-
taro, take advantage of the mistletoe.


Kathy Amelia, and the town 'B' played by Jannie Duke sample the goodies that Crystal, played
by Sandra Wood (who dresses for each of the seasons), brought to the Spa-Dee-Dah day spa and
salon as Sugar Lee, played by Blair Lovejoy, watches unapprovingly.

In each other's face, Blair Lovejoy and Gene
Callan have it out just before the'kiss:


While having a beauty treatment by Blair Lovejoy, Kathy Amelia is surprised by a
delivery from the mailman, Steve Pignataro.


With the expense of champagne, the Hallelujah girls use Mountain Dew to toast a close friend for whom
they have just attended the funeral.

Church celebrates St. Charles Feast Day


Students at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School celebrated St. Charles Feast Day on Nov. 4, starting with
Mass being said by Bishop Frank J. Dewane from the Diocese of Venice. Relics of St. Charles Borromeo were
placed inside the altar during the service. Following Mass, a procession led students, family and parishio-
ners to the Family Center for a presentation by the students in honor of St. Charles of Borromeo.


In the presentation by the students, fifth-grade student Jacob Vetter played the role
of St. Charles Borromeo, for whom the school is named.


Members of the Knights of Columbus Council 11483 were on hand for the visit by Bishop Frank J.
Dewane from the Diocese of Venice in celebration of the the Feast Day of St. Charles Borromeo.

TEA: El Jobean Community League event


FROM PAGE 1
But the Community League's teas are
about more than just eating, winning
and socializing. The events help offset
the cost of maintenance of the building
and help others, too.
"It rasies funds for the Community
League and we do outreach for the com-
munity," President Beverly Cisco said.
Outreach includes adopting families
at Christmas, and a Wounded Warriors
Tea planned for Feb. 21. That tea will be


free for veterans and their guests.
Meanwhile, Cisco encouraged the 90-
plus guests at the current tea to enjoy
themselves, and more importantly, eat.
"If you go home hungry today, it's
your own fault," Cisco told the crowd.
With the perfect mix of social events
and community spirit in El Jobean,
there's no reason not to get involved.
"The League meets on the second
Saturday of each month October
through April, except for December,"
Cisco said via email.

WOODS: Many Charlotte County residents will spend the holidays, winter, outside


FROM PAGE 1

"I have hopeful plans for the future
these include finding a steady job
in management, computer work or
working in a retail office and a home,"
Taylor said.
"I do miss my family and the gath-
erings we used to have together, and
I have my memories of Mom and her
great delicious dinners. I am thankful
for that." Taylor said. "My wish for the
holidays is to have a little Christmas
out in the woods with friends and I
want to put up decorations that I am
hoping to get. Right now I am making
the best of it and what I have. I treat
friends as family and do what I can to
survive."


Marine veteran
waiting to die in the woods
Bob White, 62, an honorably discharged
Marine, has been living in the woods for
the past five years with two other women
he looks after. Like Taylor, special circum-
stances such as losing his job when the
company he worked for closed led him
down the wooded pathway.
White does not have any plans for
the future, as he is in under Hospice
care and is waiting to die.
"They keep telling me I have only
six months to live, but I keep going
on," White said. "I do receive a small
monthly sum from my retirement plan,
but it is not enough to get back into
the system. I miss not having money


and not having a good Thanksgiving
Dinner. I miss my Mom's turkeys,"
White said. "Suicide is high around the
holidays. The worst part is seeing kids
in the shelters, and tents."
There were some agencies that have
provided Taylor with housing and care,
but White said there were problems
associated with the help that was given.
Michael Overway, HMIS Coordinator
(Homeless Management Information
System) said many of the approximately
400 to 500 people who live in the woods
have children.
"There will be more homeless people
coming into the area from up north
due to the cold weather," Overway said.
Alecia Cunningham, Senior Case
Manager, agreed that things will get worse.


"We need more industry in the area.
We have a six- to eight-week waiting
list for people to come into the shelter.
A lot come with young families. We take
special care of the children, making
sure they have plenty to eat and clothes
to wear. They are our No. 1 priority."
"The Homeless Coalition is open
365 days a year. Meals are provided.
Because of the cold weather, donations
of blankets, twin sheets, towels, tarps,
air mattresses, flashlights, socks, (very
important) gloves and hats are needed.
Also needed are health products for
children." Cunningham said.
The Charlotte County Homeless
Coalition is located at 1476 Kenesaw St.
Port Charlotte. For more information,
call 941-627-4313.

Pirates get revenge from early loss to Lemon Bay


By STEVE KNAPP
HERALD SPORTS WRITER

The Lemon Bay Mantas and Port
Charlotte Pirates met on Aug. 28 in the
Mantas' second match of the season.
The Mantas lost the first game and
then won the match with two wins. The
win in set two was a blowout at 25-13
and the deciding set was a nail-biter at
16-14. The win gave them a .500 record
at 1-1.
Fast forward to Oct. 16, and the
two teams met in the season finale in
Englewood. This time, Lemon Bay won
the first set but lost the second one in
a blowout at 25-8. They then lost the
match on an exciting 15-13 set. The loss
gave them a .500 record for the season.
Lemon Bay broke a three-all tie in
the first set when Jackie Lamarr served
up 8 points in a row to give the Mantas
some breathing room. Lamarr finished
off the Pirates when she served the
final point in the 25-12 win.
"That really gave us a lot of confi-
dence when we got those 8 points in a
row," said Lamarr. Port Charlotte coach
Brittany Muse was impressed with
Lamarr's serve. "She's a tough server, we
had problems defending it," said Muse.

Port Charlotte had a lot of trouble in
all areas of their first set.
They had four net serves, ran into
the net a couple of times and mistimed
several jumps, which caused them to
hit the ball into the net. They suffered
from a communication breakdown
which resulted in indecision on their
part as several shots fell between
players while they looked at each other.
The Pirates also struggled with their
serve return game.
The second set was just the opposite,
as the Mantas broke down in their
game. The Pirates jumped ahead 7-1
behind the serving of Kaylie Booher
and never looked back. The Pirates
held an 8-6 lead as the Mantas mount-
ed a mild comeback, but a 17-2 run
gave the Pirates an easy 25-8 win in the
second set.
The deciding set started with a
Manta lead at 7-4 but the Pirates tied
it back up at 7. After Lemon Bay took
a 12-10 lead, the Pirates again tied the
contest at 12 on an ace from Booher.
The Pirates won the game 15-13 on a
double hit by the Mantas. The win gave
Port Charlotte a 14-7 record for the
season.
Booher talked about their first set.

"We just didn't talk at all and we
weren't light on our feet. We were just
horrible. Coach (Muse) just gave us a
little pep talk and said that we were
better than what we did in the first set
so just forget it and move on. So we just
pushed through for coach. She has
really taught me a lot. She taught me a
lot of little things. She's helped all the
girls. We're better at everything involved
with the game now," said Booher.
Sophomore Tawnie Simpson said
the fact that the school is having spirit
week this week may have taken their
minds off of the game a little.
"We needed to talk more and we
didn't talk at all. We just weren't fo-
cused. Coach gave us a pep talk and we
had a different rotation in the second
game with Katie (Rioux) back so that
may have helped," said Simpson.
Starting setter Katie Rioux was
back after missing the game against
Charlotte two days earlier. She was in-
volved with the Model United Nations
contest in which she finished second
out of 73 contestants. She arrived at the
Lemon Bay gym just minutes before
the game started.
"The bus dropped me off at the
Toledo Blade corner and my mom
picked me up from there and drove me
here. If I would have gone back to the
school I wouldn't have gotten here in
time to play," said Rioux.


Muse talked about the match and the
difference in the games.
"We just didn't have it in the first set.
We weren't focused and didn't talk. I
told the girls that we were a better team
than what we showed so if we just get
back to our game we will be OK. I told
them we could either lay down and feel
sorry for ourselves or we could step
up."
Muse is in her first season as a coach
after a successful career in college.
"I had a blast with these girls this
year. I like coming to practice every
day. I'm so proud of my young fresh-
men. They kept the other girls on their
toes because they wanted to start, too.
They have all gotten so much better;
there never has been a problem with
them wanting to work. I saw so much
progress with them, like Ashton Prater
in practice yesterday. She was looking
so good with her swing, I was amazed.
Then with Kaylie (Booher) serving and
Tawnie (Simpson) when she gets ahold
of one and Delaney (Gerofsky) with her
consistency and my Libero Hannah
Madison, I just can't say enough about
them all. My only regret this entire
season is that I didn't prepare them
enough for all of the crowd noise
before we went to play at Charlotte.
Being a former player, I know what the
environment is like but I didn't prepare
the girls for it," said Muse.


Port Charlotte's Tawnie Simpson (14) and Ashton Prater are two of the front row players who
have had a good season as the Pirates finished their year with a 14-7 record.

WHAT'S
INSIDE


PUNTA GORDA


It was sweater weather last week,
and I, like most native Floridians,
was excited to don a fluffy scarf,
coat and winter boots. I'm sure I
looked comical to passing seasonal
residents, who all seemed to be stroll-
ing comfortably in tank tops, shorts
and sandals through downtown Punta
Gorda.
Even though the temperature drop
was brief, it matched our very merry
looking city and instilled a sense of ex-
citement for the approaching holidays.
Downtown, the light poles have been
decorated with garland, snowflakes
and twinkling lights for weeks, and city
crew members have been working tire-
lessly on the construction of the down-
town Christmas trees. They were even
spotted on scene at Marion Avenue
and Taylor Street on Halloween, just in
front of the haunted house, putting the
first branches on the tree.
While a bit early for my taste, it does

make sense. The twinkle, sparkle and
general merriment of the sights entice
people to walk inside local businesses
and ponder items to give out this
approaching gift-giving season.
Paired with our recent chill in the
air, I'm sure there was a bit more foot
traffic in area businesses around Punta
Gorda.
Regardless of when you decide to
start marking off purchases for your
"nice" list, be sure to keep our local
merchants in mind. Buying local
contributes positively to the local


economy.
What better way to see some of these
holiday gift-giving wares than stopping
by Gallery Walk on Nov. 21? The walk,
known as Holly Days, is set from 5
p.m. to 8 p.m. and will feature carolers,
bagbippers, ugly sweaters and even a
visit from Mr. and Mrs. Claus.
The lighting of the two downtown
trees will also occur, with much
merriment and celebration happening
all around them. Local merchants are
heavily involved, and many are plan-
ning unique events to match the Holly
Days theme.
While downtown, keep an eye out for
the nonprofit organizations represent-
ed throughout the walkways. As you
know, the holidays are a great time to
support area charities, helping spread
the joy of the season to others.
Come on out and join in the festiv-
ities in Punta Gorda. Be sure to read
today's Let's Go! for more information.

Time to kickoff the holidays in Punta Gorda


he Punta Gorda Chamber of
Commerce, the Downtown Mer-
chants Association and the city
of Punta Gorda invite the community
to downtown Punta Gorda on Nov. 21
to experience one of our favorite street
parties of the year the lighting of the
trees during Gallery Walk.
The whole concept of "Holly Days"
started many years ago under the DMAs
guidance in an effort to celebrate the
holidays and to encourage people to
shop locally for the holidays.
I vividly remember one of my first
days working at the chamber when I was
invaded by a motley crew of DMA board
members, who were all in attendance to
discuss the planning of Holly Days. It was
still June. Things have come a long way
since then.
You are invited to Punta Gorda's down-
town region to enjoy the atmosphere,
visit the many varied local bars and
restaurants, drop by the many galleries
and shops in the downtown area and to
enjoy the season that is now officially
upon us.
The fun starts at 5 p.m. on the corner
of Marion Avenue and Taylor Street,
where we have erected a stage for car-
olers of all ages. The singers include the
East Elementary School chorus, Marcella
Brown, Chakula, the Dickens Carolers and
the Charlotte Players, and all will help get
you in the holiday mood.
Shortly after 6 p.m., the tempo will
change to the sounds of Lee County Pipes
& Drums group, who will be leading our
special guests, Mr. and Mrs. Claus, to
the tree. This year, they will be accom-
panied by the Veteran Motor Car Club
of America-Southwest Florida Region's
vintage cars, which will be transporting

our event sponsors to the tree lighting.
Our distinguished guests from the
City Council will be on hand to light the
Marion Avenue tree between 6:15 p.m.
and 6:30 p.m., when we can pretty much
confirm it will snow for a while in Punta
Gorda.
Once the tree is lit, the music continues.
Plan to stick around and enjoy the festive
music.
By 7:15 p.m., the fun moves down
the street to the corner of Taylor Street
and Olympia Avenue, where, in the run
up to that tree lighting, there will be an
ugly sweater competition (we all have at
least one), more caroling, a lighted bike
parade and much more.
The second tree will be lit around
7:45 p.m. For more information, call the
chamber office at 941-639-3720.We truly
hope you'll join us as downtown Punta
Gorda gets the holidays underway, just
as Fishermen's Village lit up the skies last
weekend.

Ribbon-cuttings on the
calendar
Chamber members will gather at
5:30 p.m. at Arrays of Cabinets, located
at 1264 Market Circle, Port Charlotte,
on Nov. 20 to perform a ribbon-cutting

the celebrations.
Then on Nov. 27, members of the
chamber will meet at 12:30 p.m. at Twin
Isles Country Club, 301 Madrid Blvd., for
the last networking lunch of 2013 (there
is no December lunch).

Herald Page 5


RIGHT: Cindi Murphy, owner of Sugar Island Cupcakes,
has created many life-like designs, such as a snake, an
alligator and a fish, for people's wedding cakes.


Cindi Murphy's cupcakes have become very popular. She
baked about 600 for last year's Taste of Punta Gorda.


Cupcake shop to celebrate 5 years downtown


Cindi Murphy is not a baker. She
thinks of herself as an artist. And
when people step into her bak-
ery, Sugar Island Cupcakes, they will
immediately understand why.
Although she attended Herron
School of Art and Design for 2 years,
Murphy has, what she calls, a "natural
talent." Since she was a child, she
designed and made her own toys and
clothes. That artistic ability has carried
over into her baking skills.
On Dec. 12, Murphy will mark
her fifth anniversary at Sugar Island
Cupcakes' Sullivan Street location with
an open house from 11 a.m. until 5
p.m.
Originally from Indianapolis, Ind.,
Murphy retired from the telephone
company after 30 years and relocated
to Punta Gorda in 1998. She realized
that there were no cake shops in the
area and said to her husband, "I have to
open one."
"In Indianapolis, we had real
bakeries," she said. "People go to the
supermarkets and buy their cakes
and pastries and think those are real
bakeries."
Murphy opened Baked Occasion
Wedding Cakes in Port Charlotte 14
years ago. Situated in Schoolhouse
Square, Murphy laughed and said that
people called it "the bakery that was
never open."
"My specialty is wedding cakes, and
they were done by appointment," she
said. "So it appeared that I was always
closed."
For 10 years Murphy had a thriv-
ing business across the bridge until

W .). 111111III~1 X f, 111 1 alr l DhllJ !
gmalftom.

someone asked her to start making
cupcakes. Initially, she brought them
to the farmers market in town, and her
reputation began to grow.
"I had two businesses," she said.
"I had to bake the cupcakes in Port
Charlotte and bring them over to
Punta Gorda. I decided to consoli-
date to save money. I moved all my
equipment and in 2008 closed the Port
Charlotte store and opened this one."
Murphy has made cakes for numer-
ous weddings throughout Southwest
Florida. One was a five-tier cake for a
wedding at Sarasota's Ca' d'Zan, the
mansion of circus king and queen
John and Mable Ringling. Her other
designs are so life-like they look as
if they are not a part of the cake, but
either crawled, walked or slithered
their way to the top.
But rest assured, all of her creations
are edible. Murphy's designs are a
closely guarded secret and are all
copyrighted.
"I sculptured a fish and a snake for
two cakes," she said. "But my pride
and joy is my alligator. I made that for
the Gasparilla Inn. My buttercream
icing is another one of my favorites.
It's made from my secret recipe."


Sugar Island Cupcakes offers its
customers another treat as well for
a small fee they will deliver. Murphy
has taken her culinary delights as far
as Arcadia, been driven by small boats
to private islands for weddings and
even delivered them to the Charlotte
Stone Crab's locker room at Charlotte
Sports Park.
"I have one customer who lives
in Chicago and calls me to deliver
cupcakes to his 90-year-old aunt," she
said. "She is hooked on them."
Murphy said that she also gives back
to the community by baking cupcakes
to raise money for charity events and
delivering leftover cupcakes to the
Charlotte County Homeless Coalition.
"When they see me coming they say,
'Here comes the cupcake lady,'" she
said.
Murphy said that she does not
have to get up at an ungodly hour to
begin baking, because "that is for the
doughnut people." She purchased
special ovens from Bradenton, known
as Convect-A-Ray, that slowly bake her
products.
"Sometimes I have to call my
husband and tell him that I am still
waiting for a cake to finish," she said.
"You can't bake them too fast."
It is also an art, Murphy said, to
know just how much ingredients are
to be used in a recipe. Her average
cake serves about 100, and she bakes
about three a week. In addition, she
makes 50 cupcakes per week such
as chocolate raspberry, "Chocolate
Chip Yummie," "Milli Vanilli," "Boston
Creamer," "24 Carat" and "Scarlett's


Cindi Murphy said that everything is home-
made in her bakery. Here, she puts some of her
buttercream icing on one of her cupcakes.

Red Velvet." At the Taste of Punta
Gorda alone, she made about 600 of
them.
'All of my baked goods are hand-
made," she said. "It's a lot of fun, and I
get to meet quite a few people."
Sugar Island Cupcakes is at 322
Sullivan St. Store hours are from 11
a.m. until 5 p.m. Tuesday through
Friday. On Saturdays they have a
booth at the downtown Punta Gorda
market. They are closed Sundays and
Monday. For more information, call

Thursday at the PG Library


COMMUNITY

BEAT IN PUNTA GORDA


Susan Peters, owner of The Craftin'Cow, shows
Katharine Traquair how to use techniques and
tools for a professional looking card. In the
background, Carol Weller works on her card.


Participants in November's "Getting MORE Out
of Your Thursdays" class at the Punta Gorda
Library learn to make a handmade greeting
card.


{ Put your hand in and feel that glit-
ter," Susan Peters directed me. Puz-
zled, I reached into the tray of glitter
and gasped. Everyone laughed, having
had the same reaction when they first
encountered it a few minutes earlier.
I could see that it was fine glitter,
more like the baking glitter you sprin-
kle across cupcakes than the gritty par-
ticles we remember from childhood.
Still, I wasn't prepared for the soft, fine
sand texture of this "micro glitter."
Sprinkled lightly across the front of
a greeting card, it gives a professional
touch to the final creation.
"That's the point of coming to a
class you always learn something
new," said Peters, owner of the Craftin'
Cow in Punta Gorda. Her shop offers a
variety of creative classes at a range of
prices as well as studio time to work on
crafts for just $10 per day.
On this Thursday morning, however,
she was at the Punta Gorda Library,
teaching a free class to those who had
registered. The cost of the class was
funded by the Friends of the Punta
Gorda Library.
The class was learning to make
Christmas cards using the latest
materials, tools and techniques. Since
the class was held at the library, rather
than at the Crafting Cow, the materials
had been pre-cut for the participants
and packaged in a kit. Peters showed
them how to assemble each piece so
the result was a raised, 3-D card unlike
anything they could buy at a store
without paying big bucks for it. And
better yet, it was personally handmade.
You can't put a price on that.
Throughout the 1-hour session,


Barbara Bean-Mellinger

Janet Richards, left, and Linda Dobrian work on
their cards as library technician Kathy Harriott,
who arranges the Thursday classes, looks on.
Peters treated them to tips she's
learned through her years of crafting
- tips they wouldn't learn just working
on their own at home.
"Buy card stock at Staples and ask
them to cut it for you," said Peters,
rather than paying more for pre-cut
cards at a craft store. As a finishing
touch, she showed the crafters how
to stamp an evergreen trio on the
bottom front of their envelopes an
easy addition that would grab anyone's
attention when they receive it in the
mail.
When one woman stamped her trees
crookedly, Peters showed her how to


stamp more trees over and around it
for an impressive forest, rather than
discarding the envelope.
"Getting MORE Out of Your
Thursday" is a series of classes
the Punta Gorda Library is running
through March, on the first Thursday
of each month, with a different topic
each session.
October's class was about income
preservation. On Dec. 5, retired
photographer Vernon Cheek will teach
"Digital Photography for Beginners."
The Jan. 2 class will feature "Cooking
with Technology." The library's own
Kathy Harriott will discuss how to use
websites to find recipes, tips and more.
"I'll have some cool tools on hand,
too," said Harriott.
On Feb. 6, the Peace River Audubon
Society will present "What's That
Bird?" It will offer tips on local bird
watching and how to enhance your
experience. The March 6 class will
feature Penny Rambacher and her
nonprofit organization, Miracles in
Action. The group helps the Mayan
people of Guatemala support them-
selves by selling their handcrafted
items, and volunteers will have their
items on hand for purchase.
Harriott is in charge of coming up
with ideas for class sessions and find-
ing knowledgeable people willing to
teach them. She got some idea surveys
completed by previous class partici-
pants, but she's open to new ideas.
The classes are free, but registration
is required. For more information
on "Getting the MOST Out of Your
Thursday" at the library, call
941-833-5460.

The Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps
cadets are clean and ready for inspection.
Inspections happen every Thursday for these
students.


By LAUREN SKEOCH
CHS JUNIOR
t Charlotte High School, the Navy
Junior Reserve Officers Training
Corps program is booming.
Senior Naval Science Instructor Capt.
Mike Farley and Sgt. ScottWilliams have
been sharing their love and dedication
to the United States and its forces with
the cadets for years.
"Things have really changed a lot
since I was in high school," Williams
said. "When I retired from the military,
there were a lot of things that I could've
done. Helping shape the youth of our
country is important. A lot of the youth
in our country doesn't understand what
it is to be an American. There are rights
and responsibilities that we have as
American citizens, which is part of what
the program is about."
In order to be in the program, stu-
dents must be extremely dedicated and
have a lot of time on their hands. The
students also participate in volunteer
activities, such as beach cleanup,
blood drives and Habitat for Humanity
of Charlotte County builds.
The students do workouts during and
after school every Monday and Friday.
These workouts include drills, running
the track and bleachers, as well as push
ups, weightlifting and sit ups.

The Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps cadets at Charlotte High School line up for
uniform inspection.


"The most difficult thing about
ROTC is the (personal training) and
the inspections," said John Deluca, a
sophomore.
The NJROTC students have a good
reputation at Charlotte High and in
the community of Punta Gorda. They
are well known for their respectful
and properly mannered personalities


- something instilled in the students
from day one in the program.
A majority of the students who are in
NJROTC are planning on enrolling in
the military eventually.
"I joined ROTC because I'm going
to enroll in the military," said senior
John Cavic. "I've wanted to since I was
little."

harlotte High School has many
gifted students who study furi-
ously for tests. Matthew Vega, 15,
18-year-old Jordan Rose and Jennifer
Rathburn, 16, all juniors, are among
the students who refuse to give up the
battle with study time.
"I study by reading my notes, looking
(at) and memorize my flashcards,"
Rathburn said.
She takes good notes during class and
excels at organizing her notes because it
helps her study.
Vega is also a fan of flashcards and
uses them to help remember his notes.
"For my studies I keep my eye on
the flashcards and the rereading of my
notes," he said.
Team sports is the easiest class for
him to study. Vega claims it's just phys-
ical activity until exams. For his other
classes, he uses notes with highlighters
and reading to keep his mind fit.
Rose, like Vega, also uses highlighters
to help her study.
"During my studies, I have a habit of
using highlighters on about everything
and always rewriting my notes and
rereading my notes all over again until
it's stuck in my brain," Rose said.
Her easiest subject is Chinese.
Chinese isn't difficult for her and
takes the least amount of her time.

Jennifer Rathburn organizes her notes for class.
She must find time to study because of her
heavy extracurricular schedule.
Sometimes Rose has a hard time keep-
ing her eyes on her paper, but quickly
redirects herself and snaps right back to
reality.
All three students use music in some
form or fashion to help them study.
Rathburn prefers Christian music,
Vega listens to all kinds of music, play-
ing a random shuffle of songs on his
phone, while Rose prefers instrumental
music.
These fighting Tarpons are studying
to the top by using various types of
study methods with different subjects.

lIhat game leatuied anl uwn gual oll
a comer kick and an offside that wasn't
called, something the Mustangs capitalized
on by converted it into its first goal.
"The team played real well for their first
game, and two of the three goals Lakewood
scored came from an own goal and the
offside, so we really lost 1-0," Thomas said.
"That second goal was our fault, and you
have to take your bruises when you can."
Thomas is trying to get a handle on
his goalkeeping squad. The team again
has four, and it is trying out all of them
to see what it has. Two are sophomores
(Rahim Miller and RichardVanover) and
two are freshmen (Sean Gill and Santiago
Femrnandez) on a squad with a good mix of
youth and experience.
Only JonathanWentworth, a defender
and the undisputed leader on the team, is
a junior.
Thomas said he had a mixture of touch
in his midfield as well as speed and strength
on defense and with his forwards.

Danger of damp hot pad


Dear Heloise: I re-
cently badly burned my
fingers while baking
cookies because I failed
to notice that my hot
pad had gotten damp in
the process of washing
and reusing the cookie
sheets. I knew that a
damp hot pad or kitchen
towel would allow you
to be burned, but I was
working too quickly that
day to notice.
Later, when explaining
to my friends and family
how the burn happened, I
was surprised to hear that
some of them didn't know
you could be burned by
using a damp pad to pick
up something very hot.
The extreme heat turns
the moisture immediately
to steam, and the burn
can be quite bad.
Please let readers know
to watch out for this and
never use a damp pad or
towel to pick up anything
really hot. Bonnie P in
Houston
Ouch! But in truth, I've
done the same thing!
Once learned, never
again. Heloise

Freezing avocados
Dear Heloise: To always
have fresh avocados on
hand, I peel the avocados,
cut them in half and
remove the seed. I put
the avocado halves in
a vacuum-sealed bag
and place in the freezer.
When I want an avocado,
I simply open the bag and
take out what I want. I
reseal the avocado in the

vacuum bag and return
to the freezer. They thaw
quickly and taste fresh. -
Lynda in Amarillo, Texas
Well, they do sell
frozen avocado, so I
say go for it! For those
readers who do not own
a vacuum sealer, after
removing the seed, press
plastic wrap against the
avocado flesh. Put the
seed back in (to keep
the avocado flesh from
getting mushy) on top of
the plastic and place the
entire half, seed includ-
ed, in a freezer zip-top
bag, Store avocado in the
refrigerator or the freezer
until needed. Heloise

Ranch popcorn
Dear Heloise: I know
people put seasonings or
cheese on popcorn. Not
being a huge popcorn
fan, I have yet to try it. My
daughter puts dry ranch
dressing on popcorn for
her kids. Needless to say,
the family insisted I try it.
It's delicious. I thought it
would make an excellent
hint, since I would have
never thought of it. -

Wife hoping for baby wants

husband to stop using drugs


DEAR ABBY: My hus-
band and I want to start a
family, but until now our
circumstances have not
made this possible. After a
big move and starting a new
business, we have decided
it's about time.
My problem is my hus-
band uses drugs to relieve
stress. I don't feel he abuses
them; it just takes the edge
off after a hard day's work
like a glass of wine does for
me sometimes.
I would like him to stop
taking the drugs while we
are trying to conceive in
case it could affect the baby.
He is unwilling and it makes
me crazy. I have decided
that if he can't do this, he
isn't ready to be a father. On
the other hand, he's a hard
worker, and I wonder if by
asking him to do this I am
being selfish. Please give
me some advice. READY
FOR MOTHERHOOD IN
MISSISSIPPI
DEAR READY FOR
MOTHERHOOD: You are
NOT being selfish, you are
being prudent. According to
Dr. June Reinisch, director
emerita of the Kinsey
Institute for Research in Sex,
Gender and Reproduction:
"There is some evidence
that suggests certain drugs
can attach to the sperm and
therefore affect the fetus. So
the best plan for a healthy
baby would be for the man
to be as 'clean' as possible
before he starts to make a
child. This is because sperm
are produced about three
months before they are
released."
DEAR ABBY: One of my
husband's relatives is filing
for bankruptcy for the third
time. His wife recently
started to receive disability.
I believe they are abusing
the system.
I know she was not
truthful on her disability
application. I work in the
health care field and in
the past have completed
evaluations for disability
claims. I know the only
way she would meet the
requirements would be if
she misrepresented her
current abilities.
Everyone else in the fami-
ly works hard to support
themselves, so I can't
understand how this atti-
tude is tolerated. What has
pushed me over the edge
is they have announced


Dear Abby

they're going to have a
"bankruptcy party." They
have invited everyone over
to enjoy food and beverages
that will be purchased with
a credit card they have no
intention of paying.
I feel an obligation to
alert the disability office to
her misrepresentation. My
husband agrees that what
they're doing is wrong, but
he doesn't want me to do
anything about it. This has
caused a problem between
us because I no longer want
to go to family dinners. I
know if I keep going and
have to listen to them laugh
about using taxpayer dollars
to support their laziness,
I will eventually explode.
What do you think about
this?- SOMEWHERE IN
THE U.SA.
DEAR SOMEWHERE:
I think your relatives are
committing fraud and
that it should be reported.
Disability payments were
meant for individuals
who truly need them, not
those who are gaming the
system. And if you choose
not to associate with these
kinds of morally bankrupt
individuals, you shouldn't
have to. I can see how it
would ruin your appetite.
Shenanigans like this
should be investigated and
the abusers prosecuted to
the full extent of the law.
DEAR ABBY: Well, here
is a new one on me. I was
walking through a Macy's
looking for my wife, and
right there in front of
me was a 40-something
woman in her bra trying on
a blouse! Please tell me is
this the new normal? -
GREG IN GAINESVILLE,
FLA.
DEAR GREG: It's unusual,
but not unheard of- par-
ticularly if all of the dressing
rooms are in use. In order to
prevent this from happen-
ing again, avert your eyes
when you're in the women's
department.


"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee
great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."-
Jeremiah 33:3
All kin of wonderful possibilities open up to us
when we call on the Lord. He truly answers prayer.

Opening lead: Eight of 0

South fell in love with his hand and
bid it very aggressively 13 tricks
are easy on any lead but a diamond.
Declarer wins in hand, draws trump
in two rounds, then unblocks the ace


of spades. He next crosses to dummy
with the ace of diamonds to discard
his remaining diamonds on the ace of
hearts and king and queen of spades.
The situation is completely
different after a diamond lead.
Dummy's only entry is knocked out
while the spades are still blocked. It
looks like the lucky lie of the trump
suit will allow declarer to hold his
losses to two diamond tricks. Can
you see how South made six after a
diamond lead?
The solution is simple and elegant.
South won the ace of diamonds and
then cashed the ace of hearts,
discarding the ace of spades! This
excellent play allowed South to cash
dummy's king and queen of spades,
discarding two diamonds. He still
had to lose one diamond eventually,
but the lucky fall of the trumps
allowed him to make his slam. Well
played!

Irst heard about the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge during the closing nature segment on the CBS Sunday Morning show. You know this segment. This is the one in which Charles Osgood says, We now leave you at (some beautiful, amazing place where theres water rippling, birds chirping and deer looking surprised because thats how deer look). Then you get off your couch and think, That looks cool. I should go there sometime. And then you dont. And then the years pass. Finally, I got off the couch and made it to Ding Darling on Sanibel Island. Now I know why CBS proled the wildlife refuge. Its beautiful. But its more than that. Its a sliver of land in this great big world we actually protected from ourselves. The J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge is the largest wildlife refuge in a complex that totals about 8,000 acres in Southwest Florida. According to park information, Ding Darling is the home to: 30-plus kinds of mammals. 102 species of sh. 14 threatened or endangered animals, some of which include eastern indigo snakes, American crocodiles, alligators, wood storks, manatees, several kinds of sea turtles, smalltooth sawsh and piping plovers. 272 species of birds. 60 kinds of reptiles and amphibians (for the record, I only saw turtles and alligators thank goodness). More than 750,000 people visit Ding Darling each year, such as Eileen and Ed Michaels of Columbia, S.C. They chose to spend the last day of their recent Sanibel Island vacation at Ding Darling. Its very well done, Eileen said. The wildlife refuges main attraction is Wildlife Drive, a recently paved, four-mile path that can be viewed by foot, bicycle or vehicle. We thoroughly enjoyed it, said John and Denise Luck of Poole, England. Absolutely brilliant. You will be provided a map that highlights certain areas of the drive, such as the Calusa Shell Mound Trail along with good places for bird/wildlife watching. The great thing about the drive is that you can stop any where along the way. Simply pull your vehicle to the right, park and get out of the car. The Wildlife Drive is one way for vehicles and bicycles so dont try turning around or driving in reverse. Planning note: Do not go on Fridays. The Wildlife Drive is closed this one day of the week for maintenance, research, etc. Along Wildlife Drive, expect to see many species of birds, especially at low tide. Its truly a bird-watchers paradise. Ding Darlings website includes an eBird Trail Tracker, which provides Visit a national treasure When Stephen Leatherman, aka Dr. Beach, visits beaches across the country to compile his yearly list of Americas Top 10 beaches, he usually likes to y under the radar, quietly dodging the press until after his popular ratings are published. This week, though, the world-renowned beach expert broke from his usual protocol to speak to local reporters as he toured up and down Charlotte Countys beaches and waterways, extolling the areas pristine waterfront. Leatherman was in town this week lming a television episode for a pilot program on waterfront living, as well as a three-minute promotional video highlighting Englewood beaches, Punta Gorda and the barrier islands, including Don Pedro and Knight islands. Normally when I come to an area, I am doing ratings of beaches, and I dont usually meet with the media until after Ive done the ratings because I dont want to get the red-carpet treatment, he said. This is very different. And when it comes to waterfront living, different can be better. I thought it would be nice to go to a place that is a little less known but of high quality, and Charlotte County came up, he said. Unlike most coastal communities, Charlotte County offers the best of both worlds miles of Old Florida beachfront and a harbor teeming with world-class shing and boating. You have a beautiful environment here with the harbor, Leatherman said. Its more laid back here, more easygoing and more friendly. Your beaches are more remote Dr. Beach on the waterBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITERExpert tours area, extols waterfront livingWATER | 6 SUN PHOTO BY BRENDA BARBOSAWorld-renowned researcher and beach expert Stephen Leatherman, aka Dr. Beach, has spent the last few days touring Charlotte County beaches and waterways lming a promotional video and a pilot episode for a television program on waterfront real estate. He is joined by Emmy-award-win ning producer-photographer Russ Weston, who has worked on programs like National Geographics Extreme Alaska.MURDOCK The building that houses the Charlotte County Historical Center, charged with preserving and presenting the areas historical past, may itself soon be lost to history. At Tuesdays County Commission workshop session, commissioners discussed both the structural and related nancial problems of the History Center, which is deteriorating at a rapid pace due to its proximity to Charlotte Harbor. However, some commissioners balked at the estimated $700,000 price tag to restore the facility. The building is falling apart, Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch said. As a business decision, much as I love the location, it doesnt seem to make any sense to me to throw any more money into that building. and its only going to continue to deteriorate. Basically, the alternatives being considered include xing up the Historical Center or moving operations to another site. Repairing the facility would allow it to continue its mission on Bayshore Drive, providing a place to store artifacts and provide educational programming and exhibits to the public. An extensive and costly renovation would be required, though. The Historical Center originally operated as a private youth museum in Punta Gorda before the county purchased its current site in 2002 for the relatively modest sum of $570,000, including $300,000 in grant money. The facility, built in 1984 and raised Historical Center in need of rehabBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERCENTER | 6SOUTH OF PUNTA GORDA A 24-year-old Port Charlotte man was killed early Tuesday after his bicycle collided with a pickup on U.S. 41, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Angel Hoyt was pronounced dead at the scene. The incident occurred shortly after 6 a.m. Hoyt was riding his motorized Huffy bike northbound on U.S. 41. He attempted to turn left onto St. Pierre Road, the report shows, causing the front end of the bicycle driven by (Hoyt) to strike the left side of (the truck). The driver of the Ford pickup Nicole Lee Prestipino, 33, of Port Charlotte was not injured. Charges will not be led, authorities said. Hoyt worked mornings at Dr. Goodroof a roong company located near the crash scene. Employees declined comment to the Sun, but the owner told WINK Hoyt was a good employee. Hoyt also worked at Whiskey Creek Wood Fire Grill in Port Charlotte, picking up night shifts as a line cook after his day job was nished. He had been there about three months. He just got that bike so he could get to work, said assistant manager Rich Carmean. He was a real good kid and a hard worker. He was really trying to turn his life around. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Hoyt was one of 14 registered sexual predators in Charlotte County. He was released Sept. 9 from Taylor Correctional Institution in Perry, Fla. He had been sentenced to seven years in prison in 2007 for lewd or lascivious sexual battery on a victim between 12 and Man killed in early morning bicycle wreckBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERWRECK | 7 ChristyFEINBERGCOLUMNISTLIVE LIKE A TOURISTCHRISTY | 7 SUN PHOTO BY CHRISTY FEINBERGThe J.N.

The center serves the needs of many by providing wonderful entertainment, inspir ing classes, and events that range from one end of the spectrum to the other. We host over 12,000 individual happenings each year, all of which are designed to enhance your experience as a resident or visitor to our area. We strive to be a home away from home for those interested in all that we have to offer. Each year during the holidays we see an increased need for a place where people can come together and celebrate. The Cultural Center fills that need by offering delicious holiday meals on Thanksgiving and Christmas. We realize that not everyone has the opportunity to spend the holidays with their family. The Cultural Center is happy to provide an alternative by offering these festive dinners. These meals warm the hearts and bellies of all who attend. Its a chance to enjoy an extensive menu of your favorite holiday foods all while enjoying the company of others. On each holiday there will be open dinner seating from noon until 2 p.m. Bring your loved ones and celebrate the holidays with your extended family at the Cultural Center. Tickets are $15 for adults or $9 for children ages 10 and under. Tickets are available online (www.theculturalcenter. com) or at the center. If you find yourself with a few extra hours on either day, we could use your help as a volunteer. We rely on the gracious gift of time from our talented volunteer pool to make many of our events happen, and our delightful holiday meals are no exception.

The Sun /Wednesday, November 20, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 3 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS SOUTH VENICE Tom Skip Hannon said he was completely ill-informed about the Korean War when he was sent overseas in the early 1950s. Hannon, Walter Scotty Blomeley and Richard A. Caverly, members of the Korean War Veterans Association Manasota Chapter 199, spoke at State College of Floridas South Venice campus Tuesday to help educate people about the forgotten conict. SCFs History/Political Science Club played host to the event, as part of the KWVAs Tell America Program. Hannon told the more than 60 in attendance a blend of SCF students and adults, some of whom were also Korean War veterans gathered in the Selby Room that the trio had about 100 stories they probably could share from their time spent ghting overseas. Hannon, who was drafted into the Army and served in Korea from April 1952 until May 1953, gave a brief history of the cause of the conict there, and noted this past July 27 marked the 60th anniversary of the armistice that brought armed ghting to a halt. The Korean War started less than four years after the end of World War II, and people were weary of war, he said. It was originally called a police action, then a conict. Hannon added that former President Bill Clinton eventually authorized it to be called a war, albeit an undeclared one in which 36,547 Americans died and more than 104,000 were wounded. The war was waged between communist North Korea and South Korea, with American troops enter ing the conict on South Koreas behalf. Caverly said he was fresh out of high school and had never even heard of Korea when he was shipped overseas after a year of training with the Marine Corps. He shared how, as a company runner, he was taking a message to another ofcer when he barely avoided being shot, but couldnt avoid being captured by enemy forces. I tripped and fell in the kitchen area, and that was about the time the shooting started. All those guys, he said, mentioning several of the ve in the building by name, were killed but they shot right over the top of me. The Chinese were right on us, and one stuck a bayonet right up to my neck. I thought I was done for. He wasnt, but was marched with other men wearing summer clothes in 10to 20-below-zero weather to a prisoner of war camp. It was the same camp where Catholic priest Emil Kapaun was held and subsequently died. Caverly, along with nine other former POWs, attended a ceremony in April where President Barack Obama awarded Kapaun a posthumous Medal of Honor. Caverly said he shook hands with the president several times, and received a hug from the First Lady. I told her, Youre better-looking than your picture, he said, which prompted a laugh from the audience. Blomeley, who also served in the Army in Korea and eventually was made a squad leader, commented on the cold We had beautiful, goose-down sleeping bags that saved our lives being beaten to a beach landing by enter tainer Bob Hope We really got razzed by Bob Hope about that and avoiding being shot by friendly re from their own aircraft I waved a Rebel ag my girlfriend she was from New Orleans asked me to carry. One student in the audience asked what it was like to know they had killed people. Most of us ... suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, Blomeley said. We needed help to keep us from thinking about it and drinking about it. The VA ... told us to go out and tell other people about it. It helps us a lot.Email: annek@sun-herald.comKorean war veterans speak at SCFBy ANNE KLOCKENKEMPERSTAFF WRITER Korean War veteran Richard Caverly, left, speaks about his time as a POW during a program held at State College of Floridas Venice campus Tuesday morning.

Our Town Page 4 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Wednesday, November 20, 2013 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Its becoming less popular for local high school students to drink alcohol, according to new data. A recent survey conducted by Drug Free Charlotte County shows only 31 percent of local high school students drink alcohol. That is the lowest percentage in the coalitions 13-year history. We are so pleased with the nding, Executive Director Diane Ramseyer said. It shows the hard work of the coalition and the community is really paying off. We need to keep it coming. Drug Free Charlotte County an organization dedicated to drug prevention in the area was founded in 2000. The group has sponsored a survey, conducted by Northern Illinois University, at the beginning of every school year since 2006. Every middle school and high school student in Charlotte County was asked in August to take the anonymous 122-question survey, which asks about recent drug and alcohol use and perception. This year, the survey shows drug and alcohol use is down in both middle and high school students in the county. Results were unveiled Tuesday before more than two dozen community gures at the Charlotte County Public Schools administration building in Murdock. Im thrilled at the data, school superintendent Doug Whittaker said. Its a good trend to see. This is a strong message for the community. School Board member Lee Swift echoed those statements. It points out the good things our kids are trying to do, he said. (The survey) ies against the stereotypes that are out there. It shows the reality. In addition to students being asked to answer questions about substance use, they also answer questions about what they think their peers are doing. One of the major takeaways from the recent survey is that perception is much greater than reality. Kids are naive, said David Sonne L.A. Ainger Middle Schools school resource ofcer during a discussion session Tuesday. I ght it every day. Kids will believe anything they hear. The 2013 survey results show high school students believe 80 percent of their peers drink alcohol. Only 31 percent actually do. The real work for us is getting these numbers to the students, DFCC spokeswoman Chrissie Salazar said. Its all about peer pressure. We have to show them the reality. Alcohol use has dropped at the high school level every year since the survey began seven years ago. At the middle school level, 10 percent of students admitted to drinking alcohol within the last 30 days. Data shows those students believe 43 percent of their peers are drinking. A quarter of high school students admitted to smoking marijuana the lowest amount since 2008. Only 7 percent of middle-schoolers said they smoked pot. At all levels, tobacco use and the use of synthetic drugs also are down. This is the rst year the survey asked about prescription drugs. Twelve percent of high school students have used them for nonmedical purposes, per the data. Ramseyer said NIU tosses out about 10 per cent of the surveys each year due to suspected dishonesty.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comLocal survey: Student alcohol use downBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITER CHS Charisma choir to performCharlotte High Schools performance choir Charisma will present An Evening with Charisma at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Charlotte Performing Arts Center, 701 Carmalita St., Punta Gorda.

The Charlotte County Homeless Coalition administrator told the audience people are wrong when they picture the homeless as scruffy old guys with a drinking problem. Only 18 percent of the homeless are what we call hard-core. The rest are people who lost jobs or fell on hard times for other reasons, he said. And often, its parents with children. In one day alone, Overway said 1,000 homeless people were counted. He talked about families sleeping in cars and students going from couch to couch, or wherever they can sleep for the night. Im not one who gets emotional, but it really grabbed me when a 13-year-old girl came to us and said she was happy to be at our homeless shelter because it was the best place shes been to in the last few months, he said. While the bad news is the growing number of homeless people, there is good news, too, in the progress being done to help them. We have so many programs in place that werent here before. Our problem is getting the word out to those who need the services, he said. One program he cited as doing amazing work is the New Paradigm Foundation run by Kathleen and David Nelson. One important role of the foundation is providing affordable transitional housing to those at risk of becoming homeless. While the program has been doing that for years, most people dont even know we have transitional housing in the county, he noted. This program isnt about handouts, he said, Its about giving a hand up to help families get back on their feet. Kathleen Nelson told the audience there are 14 units of housing available. But its about more than putting a roof over someones head. Its about giving them counseling, parenting classes, nancial classes and the mentoring they need to succeed, she explained. Were asking agencies and churches to call us if they have someone who could benet from the program, she said. We need to get the word out that we are here to help those with a rm commitment to succeed. While both the Homeless Coalition and New Paradigm benet from nancial contributions, both have another need that has nothing to do with giving money. We need people to give of their time and their talent, said Overway. The more people who volunteer to do that, the more we can offer services and programs to help the homeless. Kathleen Nelson echoed his thoughts, saying volunteers are desperately needed. She said there are retired teachers and social workers that could greatly help by mentoring families and working with the children. We need mentors to help families make better decisions and we have children in need of help with their schoolwork. A support person can make all the difference in the world, she added. At the homeless coalition, there are 25 children in need of that help and only one volunteer teacher, Overway said. The need for volunteers also includes craftsmen, ofce workers and those with special skills such as artists, writers, auctioneers and chefs. If someone who can paint or do simple repairs could give us one day a month, it would help tremendously, Nelson added. Someone who can x a toilet or clean a carpet would be greatly appreciated. To volunteer or for more information, New Paradigm Foundation in Englewood can be reached at 941-681-2194 while the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition in Port Charlotte can be reached at 941-627-4313.

When the economy went south, needed repairs were deferred. Currently, the long list of problems with the building include deteriorating foundation, oors, roof and pilings; corroding steel trusses; missing structural support in walls; lighting xtures and copper piping needing replacement; lack of a climatized control system; and restrooms that fail to meet disability standards. Commissioner Bill Truex said the structural problems and related nancial costs may exceed projections. Its always more than you think, he said. Another major consideration is that the location, vulnerable to the damaging effects of salt water and ooding, is just not conducive to storing irreplaceable historical archives. If the county decides to move operations and sell the valuable waterfront property, likely yielding a good return on the countys investment, one potential new site could be in Punta Gorda. In a proposal submitted Nov. 11, Gene Murtha, president of the Punta Gorda Historical Society, suggested that the former Charlotte County Health and Human Services buildings on Cooper Street could be home to both the Charlotte County and Punta Gorda history centers. After a recent tour of the facility, Murtha said his organization is inter ested in the 2,400-squarefoot building, at a nominal cost of $10 per year. We were incredibly excited how the smaller building might work perfectly for the Punta Gorda Historical Society, after it is renovated, Murtha said. Furthermore, he suggests the Charlotte County Historical Center should consider taking up residence in the larger, 12,000-squarefoot building, creating a history campus within walking distance of Charlotte High School and a middle school. It would be a fantastic opportunity for both schools to take advantage of an enormous educational resource by having both history centers side by side at their doorstep, he said.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comCENTERFROM PAGE 1 than most beaches, and that actually makes them in some ways better, because they are not overcrowded, he added. Im used to the east coast of Florida where the beaches are jam-packed. Leatherman was joined by Emmy-awardwinning producer-pho tographer Russ Weston, who was directing the lm crew. Weston, who recently was on assignment in St. Louis, Mo., covering the World Series, has worked on television shows like the Discovery Channels Deadliest Catch and National Geographics Extreme Alaska. This has been a neat community to work in, Weston said of Charlotte County. Its been a lot of fun. The crew spent the day on Monday lming in Englewood and the barrier islands. Tuesday, they spent the day touring Charlotte Harbor; and today, they will spend it on the Peace River. In June, the Charlotte County Commission approved a $79,000 budget transfer from the Tourist Development Trust Fund to fund the video and pilot episode, which then will be shopped to several major television networks. The pilot will combine Leathermans background in coastal science with beachfront living. Realtor Robin Madden of Islander Properties in Englewood believes the investment will pay for itself and then some. Madden met Leatherman a few years ago when he toured Palm Island to show reporters how he makes his best beach selections. Hes brilliant, Madden said. He is so well-known, so well-thought-of and highly respected. This is really going to help put Charlotte County on the map.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comWATERFROM PAGE 1 PUNTA GORDA When the U.S. Postal Service challenged its offices nationwide to see which ones could sell the most breast cancer stamps during October Breast Cancer Awareness Month the Punta Gorda post office stamped its way into history. By the end of the month, the office on East Marion Avenue had sold $30,810 worth of the stamps, placing it first in the local Suncoast District of 346 offices, and third in the nation out of over 31,000 post offices. I challenged our three local branches Murdock, Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda that Id cater lunch for the one that sold the most, said Punta Gorda Postmaster Steven Bernier. He also gave awards to the Punta Gorda window clerks who sold the stamps: John Eastman, Miriam Tinsley-Halat, Eileen Dimase and lead sales associate Catherine Borgese. Supervisors Lisa Gaylord and Pam Long led the effort. The community was a big part of this, too, said Bernier. We couldnt have sold so many stamps without their support. The Port Charlotte branch sold $4,512 worth of breast cancer stamps, while the Murdock branch sold $3,577. For each $11 breast cancer awareness stamp sheet, $1.80 goes to breast cancer research. Clerks asked every customer if they wanted to buy the stamps. If they agreed, they were given a paper pink ribbon with space to put a name on. The ribbons were then displayed on the wall. After learning that theyd placed third in the nation, the Punta Gorda post office staff wanted to let the community know. Employee Trina Coleman and her husband, Eugene, who is a carrier in Fort Myers, made 6-foot-tall wooden, ribbon-shaped sculptures, which Bernier then covered with the paper ribbons members of the community completed when they purchased the stamps. He displayed the wooden sculptures on two pillars flanking the post offices entrance in honor of their win. The Breast Cancer Awareness stamp was introduced in 1998 in a bill sponsored by senators Diane Feinstein, Alfonse DAmato and Lauch Faircloth. It was the first semipostal stamp, meaning it is a legal postage stamp, but a portion of the price of the stamp is used for fundraising for breast cancer research. Breast cancer is the second-largest cause of cancer deaths in women, after lung cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates that near 300,000 new cases of breast cancer will have been diagnosed in 2013, and of those cases, 39,620 will die from breast cancer. Although breast cancer is 100 times less common in men, its estimated that 2,240 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013, and 410 of those will die from the disease. As of September 2012, over $76 million has been raised for research through sales of the stamp. Funds raised are split between the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense, both of which have research programs for breast cancer. This year, postal clerks sold $2.6 million nationally in breast cancer stamps in the month of October. Of that amount, $134,779 went to fund research.

PORT CHARLOTTE It was a day a lot of people had been waiting for and, unfortunately, one that didnt come to pass. If you were one of the throngs of people eagerly awaiting the opening of the new Culvers of Port Charlotte, youll have to wait a little longer. According to franchise owner Steve Buchmeier, the restaurants grand-opening date has been pushed to Dec. 9. The new restaurant will be located at 385 Kings Highway. The restaurants opening originally had been slated for Monday Nov. 18. Culvers, the fast-growing Midwest restaurant chain popular for its ButterBurgers and fresh-frozen custards, will feature a drive-through window and an outdoor patio eating area. It will accommodate about 100 guests, and will employ between 50 to 70 fulland part-time workers. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week. In April, the Charlotte County Commission unanimously approved a nal detail plan resolution to allow the franchise owner to move ahead on a proposal to construct a 4,061-squarefoot building on a 1-acre out-parcel in the Walmart shopping center. Culvers of Port Charlotte is one of three stores in Florida to open this year. Culvers currently has more than 470 independently owned and operated restaurants in 20 states. Florida would be the chains 21st. For more information, call 941-979-6261, or visit the companys website at www.culvers.com.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comCulvers grand opening postponedBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITER Dr. Mark Asperilla, Dr. Gerardo Garcia, Dr. Samuel Estepa, Dr. Lourdes Tadalan, Dr. Rhona Holganza and Dr. Franzuel Pamittam, in conjunction with the Charlotte County Medical Society Foundation and the Filipino-American Society of Charlotte County, will host a fundraiser Saturday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. The location of the event will be provided when reservations are made. Filipino food as well as American food will be provided along with beverages. The purpose of the fundraiser will be to raise the necessary funds needed for a medical mission trip from Charlotte County to the hardest-hit areas of the Philippines, mainly Tacloban. Asperilla will speak about his personal experience of being in the Philippines when Typhoon Haiyan hit. Local physicians will be providing the entertainment, and silent auction items will be available for those attendees wanting to bid. According to the United Nations, Typhoon Haiyan killed at least 4,200 people when it tore through the Philippines with sustained winds of 195 mph and tsunami-like storm surges Nov. 8. Thirteen million people have been affected in some way by the storm, which includes 4 million who have been displaced. At present, more than 1,580 people are missing. More than a million houses have been damaged. Asperilla, a native of the Philippines, will be returning to his homeland in January to assess the medical needs of the hardest-hit areas with the goal of setting up a longterm medical clinic. My family is safe, but my country is destroyed. The storm has long since passed, but the medical and humanitarian situation is constantly evolving, he said. Postdisaster conditions create the perfect environment for the spread of disease, especially with a displaced population. The degree of crowding, the lack of available safe drinking water and sanitation facilities, and the lack of available health care services, all contribute to the risk of disease and death. The event is open to the public, but reservations are required. Please call the Charlotte County Medical Society for reservations at 941-625-6229. Anyone wishing to support this lifesaving mission can send a check to Charlotte County Medical Society Foundation/ Philippines Medical Mission, P.O.
