A custom



newspaper

1 think the main problem of your
paper is the sports section. Sug-
gestion, offer a new section for
high school sports like WaterLine (and
let people choose
whether or not they
subscribe to that
section). I don't
think you would
Sget more than

DUNN-RANKIN Thanks, ES. Do
PRESIDENT AND PUBLISHER you have contacts
at the CIA who
might have been reading my email and
passing along interesting tidbits to you?
Your suggestion is exactly what we have
been discussing for the last year or two.
We are thinking about delivering a
customized newspaper to every home.
We have already partially implemented
this idea with our TV book and our
WaterLine weekly. We charge separately
for those two products. About half our
readers want our TV book and about
half also want our WaterLine product.
There is some overlap, but there are
many who read WaterLine but not the
TV book.
We believe one day readers will also
be able to choose whether they receive
Feeling Fit, Let's Go, sports, high school
sports, and perhaps a more robust busi-
ness section. We also believe advertisers
will be able to target their advertising
by household-specific demographic
data such as subscribers with pools, or a
Cadillac in their garage.
Packaging and delivering a cus-
tomized paper to every home is quite
a difficult challenge. Carriers must
remember, as they drive along the road,
which houses receive WaterLine and
which houses receive the TV book, in
addition to memorizing which houses
are newspaper subscribers. The list
changes almost every day.
It is not an easy job, particularly when
it is dark and house numbers are not
very visible. The challenge is that even
our best carriers could not keep up with
even more customization. Our current
mail room cannot keep customer
papers in proper order with our current
equipment.
We are currently building a distribu-
tion facility capable of keeping all of this
straight. The right customized paper to
the right house every single day is our
long-term plan. We think our custom-
ized paper will be phased in gradually
over several years. We will keep you
posted.

Thank you
We had a wonderful Welcome Back
Open House Nov. 9. Hundreds of people
came by. Many of you took a tour of our
facility. The next time you come to our
Open House, the new mail room will be
live and operational.
Thank you to all those wonderful folks
who shared their antique cars with us at
the Open House. An event like that takes
an army of volunteers: Janet and Ozzie
Osbomrne, Ron Phillips, Dorothy Doman,
Steve and Donna Kuhn, Don and Lee
Royston, Rose and Cecil Coleman, Doug
Wood, Connie Bliss, Dale Green, Clyde
Goodall and Earl Clark, to name just a few.
The live music was phenomenal.
Worth pulling up a chair for three hours

great, and Jimmy Mazz brought back
the memories.

Homeless site tapped


Expert: Englewood shelter would get families off streets


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
SARASOTA COUNTY- National
homelessness expert Dr. Robert
Marbut has recommended that a
family village for homeless families
in South Sarasota County be built
in Englewood, according to a report
released Wednesday.
Marbut, a San Antonio, Texas-
based consultant brought in by the
county and the city of Sarasota to
study the area's growing homeless-
ness issue, has been working on the
report since August and has met


with more than 250 people and or-
ganizations that serve the homeless.
Marbut recently said that Englewood
leads the county in homeless
families, followed closely by North
Port and Nokomis. According to a
Sarasota Family YMCA survey used
in Marbut's report, more than
400 families with nearly 800 children
are homeless or on the brink of
being so in Sarasota County.
In his report, Marbut recommends
that the county establish two 24-hour
intake portals for homeless families,
with one each in North and South
County. He said that a promising site


for a South County Family Village
has been identified by the St. David's
Episcopal Church Jubilee Center in
Englewood at a cul-de-sac near
350 N. Elm St. The site, located within
five blocks of an elementary school, a
park and a prekindergarten center, is
currently the abandoned Lemon Bay
Apartments complex. Cost estimates
were not provided.
An intake portal would become the
"emergency room"' for any homeless
family with children and any unac-
companied minors living in South

Report: Crime stats dip


By ADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER
During the first half of the year,
Charlotte County and Sarasota County
each saw the fewest number of report-
ed serious crimes in over 12 years.
According to the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement's semiannual
Uniform Crime Reports for January to
June, Charlotte County agencies, which
include the Charlotte County Sheriff's
Office and the Punta Gorda Police
Department, received 1,902 reports of
serious referred to in the report as
"index" crimes during the first six
months of 2013. That's down about
6 percent from a year ago, and the
fewest since 2000. The most signifi-
cant decreases were in the number of
burglaries and petty thefts.


"By using intelligence-led policing,
we are better able to predict and
target potential criminal activity," said
Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Prummell.
"That helps with preventing crime as
well as solving crimes."
Countywide, there were 115 fewer
burglaries and petty thefts in 2013 than
the beginning of last year.
Other index crimes include murder,
forcible rape, robbery, aggravated
assault and motor vehicle theft.
The number of forcible rapes in
Charlotte County jumped from
15 to 23, and the amount of aggravated
assaults rose from 141 to 155.
However, the county's clearance
rate for index crimes was 38.2 percent.
That's up about 4 percent from last
year.
"That means of all the crimes that


are being reported, we are able to
successfully resolve more of them,"
said Prummell.
The Punta Gorda Police
Department's clearance rate -
40 percent was the highest of any
major law enforcement agency in
Sarasota, Charlotte or DeSoto counties.
Like Charlotte, Sarasota's agencies
received reports of fewer index crimes
during the front end of 2013 than a
year ago. Such crimes from January to
June dropped in Sarasota by
10.3 percent from 6,265 last year to
5,621. That's the lowest total since 1999.
Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight
is pleased with law enforcement in the
area.
"It makes this news better for me
CRIME 17


Area housing market trend holds


By GARY ROBERTS
STAFF WRITER
The median sales price for single-
family homes in the Charlotte County
area stood at $125,000 in October,
representing a 14 percent increase
from $110,000 a year ago, according
to data released Wednesday from the
Punta Gorda-Port Charlotte-North Port
Association of Realtors.
While year-over-year statistics
continue to show a strong rebound
in the housing market, last month's
figure actually fell from $138,000 in
September, which was a high-water
mark since the plunge of 2008.


The median price is that at which
half the homes sold for more, and half
for less.
"Year to year, I see nothing but good.
Overall, we're looking at a positive
trend," said Sharon Neuhofer, the
association's president and a Realtor
with Coldwell Banker Morris Realty in
Punta Gorda.
One factor in the month-to-month
decline in the median price was the
number of foreclosures sold in October,
dragging down prices, she said.
Foreclosure sales were up significant-
ly last month from a year ago, going
from 56 to 96, for a 71 percent jump.
The median sales price for these homes


is holding at $81,500.
Offsetting this somewhat was the
number of short sales, which fell from
52 in October 2012 to 23 last month, a
56 percent drop.
"The sale of more foreclosures
brought prices down," Neuhofer said.
"It has an impact on median sale
prices."
On a brighter note, the median price
among nondistressed homes rose by
21 percent, from $125,000 a year ago to
$151,000 last month.
The Realtor association reports the
number of closed sales in October

mainly east of Interstate
75. The standards call
for, among other things,
diversity of housing
within developments,
and wilderness and
wildlife preservation.
There are some 2050
"settlement areas" south
and west of Center
Road near North Port,
as well as some areas
near Englewood. The
biggest areas are in the
Lakewood Ranch area
in North County. All of
the 2050 areas are in
unincorporated areas of
the county.
Changes approved
Wednesday include
reducing the number of
housing types within a
2050 hamlet from three
to two, and the number
of housing types in a
village or settlement
area from six to five.
County planning staff
member Bill Spaeth said


Several members of
the public, including
Lourdes Ramirez, who
is running for the
County Commission
District 4 seat, opposed
moving commercial
centers to the edge
of the village, and
said it would create
more traffic within the
development.
Since its adoption
11 years ago, only one
2050 development has
broken ground so far -
the Grand Palm housing
development in Venice,
by Neal Communities.
That community will
feature 1,999 homes
and amenities when
completed. Two other
2050 developments
were approved in South
County. One is Myakka
Pines, near the Myakka
Pines golf course near
Englewood, where
no development has


started. The other de-
velopment, the Villages
of Manasota Beach
near Englewood, was
withdrawn.
Wednesday's changes
were the first of three
phases of changes to the
plan. Commissioners
have said changes are
needed to help save it.
"I'd like ... 2050 to
have a real chance to
work, but it has to be
flexible so that it will
work," Commissioner
Charles Hines said.
"I think what we've
done here allows for
that flexibility, and you
can see that (we) as a
commission want to talk
about this as a group.
This is just the first part
of this, and I think it's
the right step."
In other business
Wednesday, commis-
sioners authorized a
public hearing for the
second phase of changes
to the 2050 plan. Spaeth
said there are 17 pro-
posed changes in the
second phase, including
affordable housing and
land-use mix, village
size, and open space/
green belt/greenway
requirements.
A series of three public
workshops will be held
early next month that
will allow the public to
offer their input and
learn more about the
proposed changes prior
to the hearing. The South
County meeting will be
held at 6 p.m. Dec. 4 at
the Robert L. Anderson
Administration Center in
SouthVenice.

Punta Gorda gives green light to energy plan


By BRENDA BARBOSA
STAFF WRITER
Punta Gorda adminis-
trative staff presented a
trimmed-down version of
an energy-savings program
Wednesday that focuses
on energy-efficient lighting
in public facilities around
the city.
The $725,000 program,
which represents a steep
discount from the
$1.2 million proposal
pitched by staff and mem-
bers of the ConEdison
Solutions team in August,
received the green light
from the City Council
during its regular meeting.
The council will vote


on the final contract next
month.
The revised proposal not
only reduces the overall
price of the contract, it
shortens the return on
investment, said Public
Works director Rick
Keeney.
"We looked at the
payback in years," Keeney
said. "That was one of
our main criteria. When
we came to you on Aug.
28, the payback was 16
years and the cost was
$1.2 million. We reduced
the list and prioritized it.
Today it's about $725,000
and right around a 12-year
payback."


The new energy
program focuses on
improving interior and
exterior lighting systems
in all city buildings,
retrofitting fixtures in the
city's water treatment and
wastewater treatment
plants, lighting improve-
ments at the Herald Street
Parking Garage, as well
as retrofitting each of the
city's 384 decorative lamps
that illuminate sidewalks,
walkways and side streets
with LED lighting. The
retrofit will not apply
to lighting fixtures on
state Department of
Transportation roadways
because current DOT


policy does not permit use
of LED lighting on DOT
projects.
"Did you choose this
particular project because
of a lot of our lighting
fixtures are coming up
to be replaced anyway?"
asked Councilwoman Kim
Devine.
"That is part of it,"
Keeney replied. "We have
outdated fixtures and the
bulbs are not efficient, so
we feel it's a good project
to move forward with. It
shows good cash flow and
it's positive."
The recommendations
call for a suite of lighting
improvements that will


cost $725,131 and result in
$59,391 in annual savings
with a payback period of
12.2 years, city officials said.
"It's actually much more
financially attractive as far
as the payback is con-
cerned," said JeffWykoff,
program manager for
ConEdison Solutions.
"All of these new lighting
technologies also have, in
addition to a lower usage
of energy, the benefit of a
much longer life span."
City finance director
David Drury said staff
is looking into ways
to pay for the energy
program outright from
city funds, as opposed


to borrowing money.
In other news, City
Council members agreed
on topics they'd like to
discuss with Charlotte
County commissioners at
the upcoming annual joint
meeting between the city
and county. Among the
items on the city's agenda:
the 2013 Charlotte County
needs assessment, the
infrastructure sales surtax
referendum, the South
County overlay, gateway
beautification update,
the transfer of roadways
between state and local
government and flood
insurance.

By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
State researchers are
still gathering data, but
from all indications,
this year may not be
record-breaking, but it
has been a banner year
for sea turtle nesting.
Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission researchers
still are gathering reports
on sea turtle nesting
throughout the state,
but indications from 26
selected "index beaches"
are that this year saw high
numbers of loggerhead,
green and leatherback
sea turtle nests.
According to the FWC
website www.myfwc.
corn, reports show nearly
45,000 loggerheads nests
on Florida beaches.
In 1998, loggerheads
peaked at 59,918 reported
nests on index beaches.
Leatherback nests
dropped from a 600 nest
peak to 322 nests this
year. However, those
nest counts are higher
than what was seen in
the early and mid- 1990s,
when less than 100 nests
were reported.
The real jump has been
in green turtle nesting. In
fact, the state is seeing a
record number of green
turtle nests. This year,
the nests jumped from
slightly more than 10,000
in 2009, to more than
25,000 this year.
"We are astounded and
pleased by the high num-
ber of green turtle nests
documented in 2013,"
said Blair Witherington,
FWC research scientist, in
a prepared statement last
month. "It looks like the
years of conservation ef-
forts for this endangered
species are paying off."
Locally, the sea turtle
nesting season extends
from May 1 to Oct. 31,
and the reports are good.
"It wasn't the most
nests we've ever had,
but it was a great year
for hatching," Brenda
Bossman said. She's the


primary permit holder
overseeing voluntary sea
turtle patrols on Knight
and Don Pedro islands.
On Knight and Don
Pedro, last year was a
record year with 319
loggerhead nests report-
ed. However Bossman
said 14,792 eggs hatched
this year, while only 8,468
eggs hatched last year.
"The reason was only
40 nests were affected
this year by storms," she
said. "In 2012, most of
our nests more than
half- were affected by
storms."
Like elsewhere in
Florida, Bossman report-
ed 17 green turtle nests,
compared with five nests
in 2012, and a previous
record of eight nests. The
numbers may seem low
since most green turtles
nest on Florida's Atlantic
beaches.
"(Green sea turtles)
used to be here," she said.
Mote Marine
Laboratory oversees
sea turtle nesting from
Longboat Key south to
Venice. According to
Mote's website, www.
mote.org, this year was
a near-record for logger-
heads, and nearly dou-
bled the expected green
turtle nests. This season
saw 2,247 loggerhead
nests, of which 896 were
on Casey Key, and 316
on Venice beaches. Mote
also reported 30 green
turtle nests, of which 16
were on Casey Key, and
one in Venice.
The Coastal Wildlife
Club oversees sea turtle
nesting on Manasota
Key. While end-of-season
numbers have not been
posted, the club's website
at www.coastalwildlife
club.org reported 2,629
loggerhead nests and
68 green turtle nests on
Aug. 23. During the same
time period, the club
reported Little Gasparilla
Island saw 102 logger-
heads nests and one
green turtle nest.

She loved her macrame, ceramics, flowers,
plants and feeding the cranes in her backyard.
Anne was a skilled baker and cook, creating
amazing holiday feasts for her large family that

County, Florida, and Case No.
13-04-7424P. The Department
of Homeland Security's Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) solicits technical informa-
tion or comments on proposed
flood hazard determinations for
the Flood Insurance Rate Map
(FIRM), and where applicable, the
Flood Insurance Study (FIS) report
for your community. These flood
hazard determinations may
include the addition or modifica-
tion of Base Flood Elevations,
base flood depths, Special Flood
Hazard Area boundaries or zone
designations, or the regulatory
floodway. The FIRM and, if applic-
able, the FIS report have been
revised to reflect these flood haz-
ard determinations through
issuance of a Letter of Map Revi-
sion (LOMR), in accordance with
Title 44, Part 65 of the Code of
Federal Regulations. These
determinations are the basis for
the floodplain management mea-
sures that your community is
required to adopt or show evi-
dence of having in effect to quali-
fy or remain qualified for partici-
pation in the National Flood Insur-


ance Program. For more infor-

because all the local
agencies are performing
well," he said.
Each index crime saw
a drop from a year ago,
except motor vehicle
theft, which rose only
slightly from 198 to 203.
Knight said he can
see his own agency has
been properly deploying
resources. The SCSO had
a 12.8 percent decline in
reported index crimes.
"Our strategy of
policing is working," he
said. "This is a tourist
county and a real estate
county. We want our
friends up north to
keep coming down and
pumping money into the
economy."
Knight personally
commended the North
Port Police Department,


who saw an 18.6 percent
plunge in index crimes
at the beginning of
2013.
The Venice Police
Department saw crime
slip 4.4 percent.
In DeSoto County,
reported index crimes
rose 6.1 percent. There
was a significant jump in
aggravated assaults -
59 to 91 -and petty
thefts 209 to 254.
Statewide, crime
volume dropped
5.2 percent compared
to the first six months of
2012.


"Our communities are
on a path to a
43-year crime low,
which improves the
quality of life for fam-
ilies and benefits all
aspects of our commu-
nities," Gov. Rick Scott
said in a press release.
Of note in Florida,
burglaries slid
9.5 percent and motor
vehicle thefts dropped
9.6 percent. The state
has gone down in every
index crime category
except forcible rape -
up from 3,424 to 3,443.

SUN PHOTO BY STEVE REILLY


National homelessness expert Dr. Robert Marbut has suggested that Sarasota County build a
South County Family Village that would serve area homeless families at the site of the former
Lemon Bay Garden Apartments on North Elm Street in Englewood.


HOMELESS
FROM PAGE 1

County. It would take
in and start services for
families and provide
stabilization, emergency
housing, case man-
agement and referral
services. Marbut recom-
mended that the Jubilee
Center in Englewood
should be designated
the lead service agency
for the South County
portal and encouraged
to collaborate with as
many other agencies as
possible.
Pat Knox of the Jubilee
Center and Aimee
Kirvin, administrator
for Englewood Helping
Hand, agree that a center
to help homeless families
would serve the commu-
nity well.
For seven years,
the Jubilee Center has
worked for the homeless
and other low-income res-
idents in the Englewood
area with its food pantry,
backpack program for
Englewood Elementary
School, free clothing
and referral services. At
Englewood Elementary
alone, Knox said, 22 chil-
dren have been identified
as being homeless.
"We're serving 220 fam-
ilies and 600 individuals,"
Knox said. "The homeless
numbers are really going
up. There's no affordable
housing now."
Recently, she said she
called seven different
area shelters, and they
were all full.
Knox said she had
identified the defunct
Lemon Bay Garden
Apartments as a site that
could serve homeless
families. If the property
were purchased -
whether by Sarasota
County, the state, or
through grants, Knox
said she expects the
community would "come
together."
"It will only happen if
all the organizations and
churches come together,"
Knox suggested.
Helping Hand is also


seeing homeless families,
often those who can no
longer "couch surf" with
friends and others, Kirvin
said. No federal Housing
and Urban Development
housing assistance is
available, and there's a
two-year waiting list.
Those needing the
assistance locally, Kirvin
said, are single-parent
or two-parent families
where one or both adults
have lost their jobs.
At the request of
County Commissioner
Christine Robinson,
Mary Ellen Diez,
a member of the
Englewood Community
Redevelopment Agency
Advisory Board, ex-
plored homelessness in
Englewood. Diez was
part of a Sarasota County
delegation that visited a
homeless shelter one
that Marbut helped
design in Clearwater.
When asked if there's a
need for a center serving
homeless families, Diez


said, "Yes, it would serve
Englewood well."
Robinson said
Wednesday she wasn't
surprised that Marbut
suggested building a
shelter for families in
Englewood, especially
after hearing Marbut
talk about the number
of homeless families in
South County.
"I was surprised when
he originally told me that
Englewood led the area
in homeless families, but
not now," she said. "He's
prepared the community
for this report really well
and there are no surpris-
es in here."
Marbut whose con-
sultation fee is $40,000
- will officially present
his 55-page report in a
public meeting at 9 a.m.
Nov. 25 at the Venice
Community Center,
326 Nokomis Ave.

BYTHE NUMBERS
Dr. Robert Marbut's 55-page report on the homelessness issue
in Sarasota County used the results of several surveys conducted by
agencies that serve the homeless: a YMCA survey on homeless families,
a survey by the Suncoast Partnership to End Homelessness that showed
there are 1,460 single adults in the county who are homeless -
including 177 in the South County area from Osprey to the Sarasota/
Charlotte County line and statistics from other agencies like law
enforcement.
According to the report:
There is a shortage of at least 1,187 beds/mats for adults (does not
include families).
.21 percent of the jail population is homeless.
S85.6 percent of the adult population is from North County (north of
Osprey; includes the Sarasota County Jail).
When the jail population is excluded, 82.8 percent of all adults are
from North County.
There are 348 homeless families and a total of 637 homeless
children and youth.
71 families and 156 children are identified as being at imminent
risk of becoming homeless, meaning they could be homeless within a
two-week period.
Combined total for families and children facing homelessness:
419 families, with 793 children and youth.
The average age of a child facing homelessness is 10. According to
the survey, 20 percent of children/youth facing homelessness are age
0-5; 73 percent are 6-17; and 7 percent are 18-21. The average age of
an unaccompanied homeless youth is 18.
Additionally, Marbut said there is a very high number of homeless
families with children, and homeless, unaccompanied minors in Sara-
sota County. Last school year, there were 907 unduplicated homeless
K-12 students, of which 87 were unaccompanied youth in county public
schools. These numbers do not include siblings under the age of 5. This
means more than five students become homeless every school day in
Sarasota County.

I OUR VIEW

Charlotte faces

shortage of arms

in tourism war

OUR POSITION: Tourism is up
statewide, including in Charlotte
and Sarasota counties despite a
lack of local funds to lure more
visitors here.
lorida has staged a beauti-
ful production for decades
and the critics' reviews be-
come more positive every season.
The production is called
"tourism" and it plays out on
stages from our beautiful beaches
to exciting theme parks, nature
preserves, golf courses and the
Everglades. Ticket sales in the
form of revenues continue to
climb, and 2013 has been one of
the best years ever.
Sarasota County has had a lead
in the production and Charlotte
County, while filling only a bit
role, can also boast of strong
gains in tourism the past several
months.
Florida, according to a recent
report, saw a 1.7 percent increase
in tourism in the third quarter of
2013, which ended in September.
That period saw the most
third-quarter visitors, 22.9 mil-
lion, in the state's history for that
time of the year.
So far this year, 72.6 million vis-
itors have dipped their toes in the
Gulf of Mexico or Atlantic Ocean
and/or experienced the thrill of
rides at theme parks in Orlando,
Tampa or Winter Haven. Between
January and August this year,
those tourists spent $51.8 billion
in the state.
Sarasota, and Charlotte to a
lesser degree, have benefited
from the bump in tourism.
Virginia Haley, Visit Sarasota
president, said the county will
see a 10 percent jump in visitor
spending when figures are all
in for the fiscal year that ended
Oct. 1.
Haley attributed the higher
numbers to events like the Pan-
American Masters Championship
swim meet in June, a normally
quiet month for tourism,
and the U.S. Masters Rowing
Championship this past August.
"But, what has really helped
us," she said, "is the boost in our
promotion budget (mostly thanks
to the extra penny sales tax
enacted in 2010)."
Sarasota is not letting success
give it a false sense of accom-
plishment. Indeed, the county
is working on a new BMX racing
track that will attract competitors
from all over. It has launched an
aggressive marketing campaign
in the Northeast in cooperation
with JetBlue, targeting customers
and potential visitors in New York
and Boston.
Charlotte County, meanwhile,
struggles to come up with money
for promotions, but still has
seen a jump in bed tax revenues
(money paid for hotel rooms and
condo rentals) for three straight
years.
Lorah Steiner, director of
tourism for Charlotte County,
said bed tax totals for fiscal year
2013 were $1,520,176 up from
about $1.47 million in 2012.
"It's been an amazing year for
us," Steiner said. "Our September
numbers were up 16 percent
in room revenue and that is an
important indicator because
it means people are being less
price-sensitive and more willing
to pay for accommodations
instead of wanting to go home
with money in their pocket."
Charlotte's success is despite
cutbacks in the past couple of
years on money for research and
marketing.
If Charlotte County would run
tourism as a subsidiary business
and boost its marketing of eco-
tourism, film and TV (one area
the county has made progress
in), sports and our beaches, we
believe the outcome would far
overshadow the expense.
The time is ripe to jump on the
tourism bandwagon. Charlotte
County needs to be more aggres-


sive in its approach and there is
no better model than its northern
neighbor.


LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

Anguishing over
entitlement legacy

Editor:
In the Nov. 18 edition of the
Sun, a letter plays the race card
by alleging that the GOP has "a
racially based strategy" because
it favors reform of entitlement
programs which may dispro-
portionately affect minorities.
He fails to acknowledge that
the GOP also favors fiscal re-
sponsibility and is concerned
about other entitlement pro-
grams such as health care and
Social Security. Does the writer
favor our continuing to borrow
money to fund entitlement
programs ad nauseam?
Over half of our federal
revenues now go to fund
entitlement programs. Our
national debt is now over
$17 trillion and growing. Some
economists predict that if
continuing on the current path
our annual debt will equal
GDP by the year 2030. The
federal government ran out
of money by the end of the
third quarter of this year and
all monies spent since then
has been borrowed. I would
submit that now that half the
population pays no taxes, we
have a country on a collision
course with bankruptcy.
The liberals in our govern-
ment and population don't


seem to worry about
entitlement program
going to be funded. I
over the legacy our c
government is going
for our grandchildren

Social services
are necessary

Editor:
It wasn't the poor who
brought down the U.S. econo-
my and made it easier to send
middle-class jobs overseas,
who stood against increasing
the minimum wage and the
ones who cut food stamps.
People need to understand
that many Americans who use
assistance programs have full-
time jobs at minimum wage.
For all these critics who are
against our great country and
social services, if you ever need
them, hopefully they will be
there for you. I'm glad to give
my tax dollars to help others,
when they need it, even if
they're not on food stamps.
The state of Florida has
47 percent of its population
on food stamps.

Tea partiers
misunderstood

Editor:
I'm often astounded by the
lack of civility and accuracy of
people who express opposi-
tion to the Republican Party
in general and the tea party
in particular. The outright
and blatant offenses seem to
be without number, so, for
the record, let's describe for
you what a conservative tea
partier is.
We believe that the gov-
ernment that governs least,
governs best. We share this
position with a number of
the Founding Fathers of this
country. Read some history
people. We believe children
should be educated for the
world that exists not some
fanatical dream of what it
should be. We believe that
helping the poor is something
all persons should do, but not
by way of a government that
can't reliably do it. We believe
that there are some functions
best left up to the federal
government; these do not


include health, education or
public welfare.
We are not at war with
women, immigrants, mi-
norities or the elderly. We do
not want dirty water, air or
food. We do not believe that
taxing carbon emissions in
this country will have any
effect on global warming. We
do believe that if you have
contributed to a government
program that you are entitled
to benefit from it.
So, as a conservative, I will
continue to believe that we
live in a great country and
that, on occasion, we elect
people who have no idea what
they're doing. Over time, it all
balances out.

She wants smaller
recylable container

Editor:
I am writing in question as
to our recyclable containers
in Charlotte County. We were
delivered 64 gallon containers.
I called Waste Management
and asked for a smaller con-
tainer. I was told "Charlotte
County does not have smaller
containers available."
The next street to us was
delivered smaller contain-
ers, they are in Charlotte
County. So I called Waste
Management back and the
same thing repeated. This is
a lie and they insist no one in
Charlotte County has smaller
containers.
Can someone answer why
Waste Management contin-
ues to lie to us in Charlotte
County?
Marsha Salter

We need national
health care system


The USA already had a
national health care system
that worked well before
Obamacare. It provided
health care and still does
for millions of people. Of
course, it's called Medicare
and is paid for with contri-
butions. The easier answer in
my opinion, to provide health
care to all citizens, instead of
Obamacare, extend Medicare
to all citizens.
This would provide maxi-
mum coverage for minimum
cost, as Medicare overhead
is a lot lower than private
insurance that have max-
imum limits and includes
profits. The insurance
companies could still be
allowed to sell supplemental
coverage. Additional saving
would be the elimination
of Medicaid, exchanges and
state programs.
To provide Medicare to
all citizens regardless of age
would require more contri-
butions from all citizens with
income above the poverty
level without any limit on the
amount of income requiring
contributions. Hopefully this
would fund the majority of
the costs. The rest of course,
if necessary, would have to
be made up by cutting some
spending or raising some
taxes. Do we really need 11 or
more nuclear aircraft carri-
ers when no other country
except France has one?
As for the argument would
you rather want the govern-
ment or a private insurance
company to make your
health care decisions, I don't
want a for-profit company
making mine.
To minimize transition
problems this could be done
over a few years.

Addressing absentee landlords in Parkside is necessary


ort Charlotte's
Parkside is an ex-
ample of a neigh-
borhood that received
little attention from local
politicians, government
and residents since
the area first started is
downward spiral some
25 years ago when the
original owners started
passing away. Now that
it has been allowed to
deteriorate to the point
where it officially quali-
fies as a blighted district,
is it finally getting the
attention it should have
received decades ago.
Charlotte County
Commissioner Tricia
Duffy should be ap-
plauded for doing what
hasn't been done in
decades, and that is to
show a willingness to
get in the trenches, meet
with residents and let
them have input into
the future of Parkside.
As a result, we have seen
Team Parkside formed,
which has started to ad-
dress some issues, such
as cleaning up McGuire
Park, the formation
of neighborhood and
business watch groups,
a community garden,
area cleanup, and
many other initiatives
that have boosted the
image of Parkside and its
residents. The Charlotte
County Sheriff's office


has stepped up their
campaign to address
street crime with new
initiatives. Code en-
forcement has picked
up its pace to address
code violations. These
efforts, as well as the
insistence from some
of the area's activists
who are demanding
permanent solutions
for Parkside, should all
be applauded, as they
have demonstrated that
they are willing to be
part of the solution, and
not contributors to the
ongoing problems.
The Citizen's Master
Plan for Parkside fea-
tures infrastructure im-
provements, parks and
open spaces, designed
to make the area look
"urban in character,"
but it lacks details on
how to effectively deal
with the fact that close
to 50 percent of the
homes are not owned
by the people who live
in them. And while
these improvements


and initiatives are all
noteworthy and a step
in the right direction,
they alone will not make
the neighborhood a
great place to live, work
and raise your family, in
that they do not address
and fix the root problem
that plagues the area.
Communities from
Boston to Naples have
finally acknowledged
that absentee landlord-
ism is a fundamental
root problem in their
communities, and have
started to take meaning-
ful action against people
living hundreds of miles
away who don't care
about the condition of
their property, the type
of people that they rent
to, and its consequences
on the community and
its residents.
The reality is that
some of these folks have
been major contributors
to the blight in Parkside
for years, and most of
them operate with near
impunity. Being classi-
fied a blighted area must
mean more than a status
that qualifies a neigh-
borhood for federal
monies from a variety
of programs that really
don't get to the root of
the problem. Surely, put-
ting pavers in intersec-
tions, planting a canopy
of trees on streets, and


other cosmetic changes
are well-intended and
an essential component
in turning a community
around, but they don't
address the underlying
core problem. These
repairs will not have
significant impact unless
the core problem is
identified and fixed.
If not, they are akin to
putting "lipstick on a
pig."
Many residents share
this concern and hope
that our commissioners
will not be trapped into
thinking that cosmetic
changes alone will
result in any meaning-
ful transformation of
Parkside. Knowing that
true change requires
out-of-the-box thinking
and proactive solutions
that result in making
changes in the way that
the county does busi-
ness in a blighted area,
they want our commis-
sioners to step up and
establish tough rules
for absentee landlords,
rules that many com-
munities have already
adopted because it's the
only meaningful solu-
tion to this problem.
Due to the high
stakes, absentee land-
lords in blighted areas
should be required
to obtain a business
license and have the


property inspected to
ensure it meets code
prior to renting it. If
they choose to neglect
their property or rent to
people who are arrest-
ed and convicted of
felonies, including drug
violations, they could
lose their rental license
or be required to post a
bond in order to con-
tinue doing business as
a rental property. Some
cities are even charging
absentee landlords for
the extra police staffing
and services that are
needed to maintain
order on their streets.
The process for
adjudicating code
enforcement violations
must be fast-tracked
in a blighted area. A
special magistrate for
the Parkside area could
possibly help in this
regard. TIF funds and
rental licenses fees
could be used to hire
a cadre of temporary
part-time rental and
code enforcement
inspectors assigned
exclusively to Parkside
until the problems get
resolved.
Commissioners must
deny any requests for
zoning changes that
exacerbate the problem,
including the rejection
of accessory zoning,
whereby additional


people can be squeezed
into Parkside through
the construction of
in-law apartments or
similar types of habit-
able out-buildings. They
need to review Smart
Charlotte 2050 and elim-
inate any efforts to turn
Parkside, and any other
area of Charlotte County,
into an urban zone.
The core problems
in Parkside need in-
tervention before the
situation gets to the
point of no return. Our
commissioners have to
send a clear message to
absentee landlords that
the residents of Parkside
will not tolerate any
further irresponsibil-
ity by these property
owners. We should not
be enabling behavior
that contributes to
sustaining blight in
this area. These owners
have to either take care
of their property and
rent to law-abiding and
responsible people, or
sell the property to an
owner who is willing to
do that.

Another Legislative session, another roll of the dice


ere we go
again, another
year, another
multimillion-dollar
effort to expand gam-
bling in Florida.
In full disclosure, as a
former state legislator,
I have taken numerous
votes on the issue. I
am neither morally nor
religiously opposed to
gambling. Likewise, I'm
not an enthusiastic sup-
porter of turning Florida
into the Las Vegas of the
East. That view placed
me in an interesting
category as votes were
being tallied, neither
stridently opposed nor
closely aligned with any
of the pro-expansion
factions.
It's a tough sell every
legislative session, yet
the issue returns along
with the very generous
checkbooks of those
seeking to influence the
Legislature: generous
with campaign contri-
butions, generous with
expense accounts, gen-
erous with multiplying
their lobbying teams.
The opposition to any
expansion comes from
three major players:
the religious right,
who morally object to
gambling; Disney, which
financially objects, and


Paula




law enforcement, which
predicts increased
crime. These three
groups are politically
influential and adept at
fighting with grassroots
support.
Make no mistake,
we already have con-
siderable gambling in
Florida.
We have seasonal
betting on horse rac-
ing, greyhound dog
racing and Jai Alai.
We have bingo in our
Elks Lodges, Catholic
churches and assisted
living facilities. We have
the Florida Lottery,
which went from a
weekly drawing in 1998
to numerous drawings
and the addition of
a multi-state lottery,
Powerball.
In 2004, Miami-Dade
and Broward county
voters approved slot
machines in existing
pari-mutuel facilities.
Under the Federal


Indian Gaming
Regulatory Act, Indian
tribes are permitted
to have any form of
gambling that is legal in
their state.
The Seminole Tribe
entered into a compact
with the state of Florida.
In return for a five-year
contract that gives
them exclusive rights
to blackjack, baccarat
and other table games,
the Tribe pays the state
roughly $233 million a
year from its $2 billion-
a-year enterprise, which
includes several Hard
Rock casinos.
The Miccosukee Tribe
seems to be content
with slots, poker and
bingo. The pari-mu-
tuels, on the other
hand, object to paying
a 35 percent tax and
to being limited to just
slots and poker.
Gambling magnates
such as the Malaysian
gaming giant, the
Genting Group, have
focused their sights on
Florida to develop giant
resort casinos. They
contend these resorts
would attract large
conventions and greatly
increase business
tourism.
They make their case
for expansion on the


benefits from develop-
ment: increased sales
tax revenue, expanded
property tax rolls,
construction jobs; and
the benefits of expanded
gambling: thousands of
permanent jobs, a boost
in tourism, top-notch
entertainers and a cut of
the gaming revenue for
the state.
Any move the
Legislature makes
has domino effects in
multiple directions.
If the state allows
other parties to offer
expanded gaming, it
breaks the exclusive
compact with the
Seminole Tribe, forgoing
the $233 million annual
payment. However, the
five-year contract is
coming to an end and
the state could renegoti-
ate. The Seminole Tribe
may lose exclusivity but
would be able to pick
up craps and roulette
without paying the state.
No skin off their noses.
In the 2012 session,
the Republican-
controlled Legislature
failed to pass a bill
allowing major casinos
in South Florida. But the
pro-expansion players
are doubling down.
According to a Florida
Times-Union story, they


contributed $1.4 million
to political campaigns
and committees in the
2012 campaign cycle
compared to $2.8 million
in the 2014 cycle.
Instead of counting
cards, they're counting
votes. And based on the
contributions to the
governor's political com-
mittee, they're hoping
he'll be their ace in the
hole.
So what are the odds?
Polls show Floridians
are evenly split on casi-
no gambling but those
who are opposed feel
much stronger about
their position. These
individuals tend to be
older, more religious
and more conserva-
tive. In other words,
Republican.
In an election year,
Republican legislators
fearing a primary
challenge might find
themselves between a
rock and a hard place.
The Florida Chamber
of Commerce joined
the Florida Sheriff's
Association, Disney
and the Christian
Coalition in opposition,
making it more diffi-
cult for Republicans,
especially Orlando-area
Republicans, to vote
for expansion. The No


Casinos group is orga-
nized and working in
tandem with the other
members of the opposi-
tion to decry the crime,
corruption, addiction
and poverty associated
with gambling.
The pro-gambling
players have competing
interests and do not
work as a cohesive
group, with each trying
to cut their own side
deals. The issue gets
increasingly complicat-
ed as the amendments
start flying. What they
lack in unanimity they
make up with in finan-
cial resources. You can
expect them to feed the
kitties of many legisla-
tive campaigns between
now and the start of the
legislative session.
It will take a coalition
of Democrats, moderate
Republicans and South
Florida legislators to deal
the gambling interests a
winning hand. It's more
likely to pass in the
Florida Senate. I wouldn't
bet the House on it.

54 to 70. Also, the
median sales price for
condos was up 8 percent
to $108,000, from just
under $100,000 the
previous year.
The months supply of
inventory for condos fell
to just over 5, compared
to more than six and a
half a year ago, a
23 percent drop. In
contrast, the months
supply of inventory for
single-family homes is
up to just over five and a
half months, or 12 per-
cent more than the five
months of year ago.
The months supply
of inventory represents
the time it would take
to deplete the current
inventory at the current
sales rate. Six months is
considered a balanced
market between buyers
and sellers.
In Sarasota County,
the residential market is
doing even better.
Median sales prices


continued to climb
in Sarasota County in
October, compared with
year-over-year num-
bers, according to the
Sarasota Association of
Realtors. Single-family
home prices were up
12 percent -$185,776
this year, compared with
$166,500 last year; while
condo prices spiked by
21 percent, rising from
$145,000 last October to
$175,000 this year.
Total property sales in
Sarasota County, which
had seen large
year-over-year increas-
es over the summer
months, moderated in
October. Overall prop-
erty sales stood at 818
last month (582 sin-
gle-family homes and
236 condos), compared
to 793 sales in October
2012
(518 single family
homes and 275 condos).
The sales total was
almost identical to the

of 817, but there were
big changes in the two
property categories.
"There was definitely
a shift in October toward
single-family and away
from condos," SAR
President Roger Piro said.
"That might be a
function of the price
escalation, which was
far more pronounced in


the condo category. Also
in October, there were
fewer properties on the
market priced under
$200,000 than last year,
and more priced above
$200,000. So bargain
hunters have had to ad-
just their sights upward,
where there are more
deals to be found."

let on.
An unpublished

Administrative punish-

DALLAS Help yourself to some nuts
this holiday season: Regular nut eaters were
less likely to die of cancer or heart disease
- in fact, were less likely to die of any cause
- during a 30-year Harvard study.
Nuts have long been called heart-
healthy, and the study is the largest ever
done on whether eating them affects
mortality.
Researchers tracked 119,000 men and
women and found that those who ate
nuts roughly every day were 20 percent
less likely to die during the study period
than those who never ate nuts. Eating
nuts less often also appeared to lower
the death risk, in direct proportion to
consumption.
The risk of dying of heart disease
dropped 29 percent and the risk of dying
of cancer fell 11 percent among those who
had nuts seven or more times a week com-
pared with people who never ate them.
The benefits were seen from peanuts as
well as from pistachios, almonds, walnuts
and other tree nuts. The researchers did
not look at how the nuts were prepared -
oiled or salted, raw or roasted.
A bonus: Nut eaters stayed slimmer.

testimonials, pitching its
product as a safer and
cheaper alternative to
tobacco cigarettes. So far,
the business has escaped
the reach of regulators,
but from Washington,
D.C., to the Chicago
suburbs, that is changing
quickly.
The U.S. Food and
Drug Administration
appears poised to label
e-cigarettes a "tobacco
product," a distinction
that would give the
agency power over their
marketing, manufacture
and sale. Mundelein, Ill.,
about 35 miles northwest
of Chicago, just passed
an ordinance banning
the sale of e-cigarettes
to anyone under the age
of 18, and on Jan. 1, a
similar law will take effect
statewide.
Evanston, meanwhile,
has gone even further,
banning the use of
e-cigarettes anywhere
smoking is prohibited.
"There hasn't been a
whole lot of long-term
research on this, but
we really wanted to
make sure we were on
the front end to protect
our residents," said Carl
Caneva, assistant director
of Evanstons health
department.
The lack of regulation
has turned e-cigarettes
into a commercialWild
West, where basement
chemists and giant cor-
porations alike concoct
mixtures that taste like
everything from peach
schnapps to Mountain
Dew. The novel flavors
concern anti-smoking
advocates, who note
that teen e-cigarette use
recently doubled within a
single year.
"I don't think that
there's any question
that flavors appeal to
young people," said
Danny McGoldrick of the
Campaign for Tobacco-
Free Kids. "It's just anoth-
er way to help introduce
them to the habit."
Researchers aren't
sure of all the chemicals
released by the products,
but some say there's
ample reason for worry.
The American Lung
Association, which favors
strict regulation, cites a
recent study that found
chemicals such as form-
aldehyde and acetone
in exhaled e-cigarette
vapor.

Report: Detroit
bankruptcy caused
by state cuts,
shrinking tax base
WASHINGTON
(Detroit Free Press) A
New York-based think
tank released a report
Wednesday questioning
Detroit emergency man-
ager Kevyn Orr's assertion
that the city's long-term
debt is responsible for its
fiscal problems or that
pension contributions
are a major hurdle for the
city's finances.
Instead, the report
byWallace Turbeville, a
senior fellow at Demos,
a public policy organiza-
tion, said Detroit's decline
into bankruptcy was
caused by a steep decline
in revenues partially due
both to a shrinking tax
base and deep cuts in
state revenue-sharing
with the city.
"By cutting revenue
sharing with the city, the
state effectively reduced
its own budget challeng-
es on the backs of the
taxpayers of Detroit,"
Turbeville wrote. "These
cuts account for nearly a
third of the city's revenue
losses between (fiscal
year) 2011 and FY2013."

Existing-home

co-ops fell 3.2 percent from
September to a seasonally
adjusted annual rate of
5.12 million, the National
Association of Realtors said
Wednesday,
It was the second consec-
utive month of declines.
"The erosion in buying
power is dampening home
sales," Lawrence Yun, the
association's chief econo-
mist said in a statement.
"Moreover, low inventory is
holding back sales while at
the same time pushing up
home prices in most of the
country,"
Still, sales are 6 percent
higher than October 2012.

Solid Oct. retail
sales lift hopes for

WASHINGTON (AP)
- An increase in shop-

the U.S. economy may be
more resilient than some
have feared.
Retail sales in-
creased 0.4 percent in
October, the Commerce
Department said
Wednesday, after being
flat the previous month.
That jump shows that
many consumers remain
willing to spend as the
all-important holiday
shopping season nears.
At the same time, other
data released Wednesday
point to an economy
that's still struggling to
reach full health.
Businesses' inventories
increased by 0.6 percent
in September, the

said. This caused several

their growth forecasts
for the previous June-
September quarter but to
downgrade their expec-
tations for the current
quarter.

Few support delaying changes in flood insurance


WASHINGTON (AP)
- Efforts to delay imple-
mentation of changes in
the federal flood insur-
ance program have run
into roadblocks on both
sides of Capitol Hill.
The leaders of the
House Financial Services
Committee say they are
standing behind last
year's bipartisan legis-
lation to put the flood
insurance program on
sounder financial footing
even as the implemen-
tation of the law has
sparked a chorus of
complaints from constit-
uents fearing spikes in
premiums and plummet-
ing home values.
In the Senate, attempts
to call a quick floor
vote on legislation to
delay the changes in the


program designed to
force higher premiums on
properties especially at
risk of flooding appear
to face opposition from
both Democrats and
Republicans.
Sen. Mary Landrieu,
D-La., wants to add the
measure to an unrelated
defense policy bill, but
Majority Leader Harry
Reid, D-Nev., is restricting
the ability of senators to
offer unrelated amend-
ments. Meanwhile,
Republicans are unlikely
to allow a vote that could
give Landrieu, who faces a
tough re-election bid next
year, the chance to claim
political credit.
The curbs on tax-
payer-subsidized flood
insurance rates are a case
study in what happens


when Washington takes
away a government-spon-
sored benefit that helps a
relatively small group of
people.
About 1.1 million home-
owners or 1 in 5 in the
program have received
taxpayer-subsidized rates
and the government has
financed about 60 percent
of losses on their prop-
erties. Most people can
retain the subsidies but
can't pass them along
to people buying their
home, a restriction that's
especially burdensome
to lower-income older
homeowners seeking to
sell their houses.
The changes also
promise to make it
unaffordable for people
in chronic flood zones
to keep their homes, and


they have put a damper
on home sales in areas
where benefits extended
to current homeowners
can't be passed along to
prospective buyers.
The quandary is espe-
cially felt by conservative
Republicans torn between
their philosophy of limited
government and helping
constituents facing sharp-
ly higher flood insurance
premiums. Lawmakers
trying to delay the law's
implementation cite
horror stories of people
slapped with unaffordable
premium increases on
modestly priced homes.
Supporters of the law
say it's mostly operating as
intended, which is to hit
at-risk homeowners with
actuarially sound rate
increases.


"What we're trying to
do is separate fact from
fiction here. And we're
hearing a lot of rumors.
And some of those rumors
... it turns out are not as
represented," said Rep.
Randy Neugebauer,
R-Texas, who chaired
a hearing Tuesday of
the Financial Services
Committee's housing and
insurance subcommittee.
"We do know that there
are some people out there
who are going to experi-
ence higher premiums.
But, you know, that was
the purpose."
Last year's legislation
promises premium
increases to 1.1 million
homeowners who've
received subsidized,
below-risk coverage and
could sock even more


homeowners whose
homes met older building
standards or were deemed
at lower risk under previ-
ous flood maps. Under the
old rules, they could retain
their old rates since they
followed the rules when
they bought or built their
homes, but they will soon
lose those grandfathered

Fla. picks new
leader for state
universities

MIAMI (AP)-
Prominent business
leader Marshall Criser III
will lead Florida's state
university system.
The Board of Governors
unanimously picked
Criser on Wednesday to
serve as the university
system chancellor. Criser
has been president of
AT&T Florida since 2005
and is the son of a former
University of Florida
president.
Criser is also a major
campaign donor and
has deep ties to other
well-known business
organizations.
The chancellor of the
state university system is
responsible for running
the Board of Governors

One word for this

WEST PALM BEACH
(Cox Newspapers) -The

enumerated what South
Floridians, their pantries

goods and bottled water,
already pretty much
know: This season, set to
end next week, was the
quietest since 1995 and
marked the first time in
19 years that no major
hurricanes formed.
After three straight
seasons that were among
the busiest on record, the
team of William Gray and
Phil Klotzbach and
pretty much everyone
else had predicted yet
another above-average
year.
"It was one of the larg-
est busts for our research
team in the 30 years we've

Klotzbach said this week
in a release.


Attorney says
charges dropped
in bullying case

ORLANDO (AP)- A
lawyer for one of the two

who committed suicide
in Florida says charges

Attorney Jose Baez

2 in US Marshals
task force
wounded in Fla.

SEBRING (AP) -
Authorities in central
Florida say two mem-
bers of a U.S. Marshals
task force have been
shot and wounded
while attempting to
serve an arrest warrant
in a cocaine trafficking
investigation.
Highlands County
Sheriff's Office spokes-
woman Nell Hays says
the shooting happened
about 6 a.m. Wednesday
at a home in Sebring.
Hays said one U.S.
marshal and one St.
Lucie County sheriff's
detective assigned to
the task force suffered
non-life threatening
gunshot wounds.
Both were listed in
stable condition at a
hospital. Hays says one
was undergoing surgery.
Hays says the suspects
sought in the home
were part of a broader


investigation that
resulted in six arrests
on federal drug charges.
She says the suspects
involved in the shoot-
ing were among those
arrested.

Man gets life in
prison for fatal
attack
MIAMI (AP)- A
South Florida man
suspected of killing
several elderly women
has been sentenced to
life in prison.
As part of a deal with
Miami-Dade prosecu-
tors to avoid the death
penalty, 44-year-old
Reginald Smith pleaded
guilty Wednesday to
murder and attempted
murder.
The Miami Herald
reports that Smith was
first arrested in January
1995 following the beat-
ing death of 79-year-old
Dorothy Cooper and
the robbery of 73-year-
old Virginia Hoffmann,
who nearly died follow-
ing her attack.
Smith was also
suspected in at least
two other murders, but
there was never enough
evidence to charge him.
Both of those victims
- one 81 years old and
one 79 years old were
found dead in their
homes.


$16M Powerball ticket


unclaimed in Florida


TAMPA (AP) -Hitting
a $16 million Powerball
jackpot is a dream for
most people.
But losing a fortune
by letting those lottery
winnings expire is a
nightmare and that's
what will happen today
if someone doesn't claim
the ticket bought in May
at a suburban Tampa,
Fla., convenience store.
Lottery officials say
this will be the largest
unclaimed jackpot in
Florida since 2003, when
someone didn't claim
$53 million in the Florida
Lotto game.
Neighborhood resi-
dents who have been
following the lack of
action on the recent
winner's part have taken
to speculating on the
mystery of why someone
would take the time to
buy a lottery ticket, win
$16 million, and not
claim the winnings.
Maybe the winner died
before he or she could
cash in. (Sad.)
Maybe the person
lost the ticket or threw it
away. (Unlucky.)
Maybe the person is
from out of state and
forgot. (Sad and unlucky!)
Or maybe the person

has spent six months
getting his or her affairs
in order before claiming
the jackpot. (Brilliant if a
little obsessive.)
"I wish I had it," sighed
resident Laura Winkles.
"How could someone be
so silly? This is just free
money."
The owner of the
Carrollwood Market said
Monday that she wonders
about the winner every
day she walks into her
store.
"The store is a neigh-
borhood store, and pretty
much 90 percent of our
customers are regular
customers," she said. "We
still have a little bit of
hope that somebody will
come before Thursday."
Nidia Tannous has
placed signs in her
store's window, urging
customers to check their


Powerball tickets from
Memorial Day.
The store received
$25,000 for selling the
winning ticket.
"I bought a ticket
that very day that ticket
was sold here," said Joe
Fitzgerald, a nearby
resident. "I checked mine,
and unfortunately, it
wasn't mine."
According to the
Florida Lottery website,
if a Powerball jackpot
isn't claimed within
180 days from the draw
date, "the funds to pay
the unclaimed jackpot
will be returned to the
lottery members in their
proportion of sales for the
jackpot rollover series."
In Florida, about
80 percent of that share
will go toward the state's
education enhancement
trust fund.

Nuke talks begin, Iran warns of limits


GENEVA (AP)- A new

talks began in fits and

Iran's nuclear program
in exchange for limited

Too fat to fly: Frenchman's ordeal ending

cruise ship in his quest to
return home and his
family says it's because
he has been deemed too

because of his weight.

Cholesterol drug may be found in trash


MELBOURNE,
Australia (Bloomberg)
- A way to boost good
cholesterol and avert
repeat heart attacks,
which has eluded two of
the world's biggest drug-
makers, may have been
sitting in CSL's trash.
The Australian compa-
ny realized that instead
of discarding unused
blood components
left over from making
hemophilia, burns and
immune-system treat-
ments, it could extract
the beneficial cholesterol
known as HDL and in-
fuse it into patients. The
idea is that HDL therapy
may quell inflamed
arteries and dissolve the
life-threatening plaques
that clog them, said
Andrew Cuthbertson,
CSL's chief scientist.
The experimental
treatment was the
focus of three papers
at the American Heart
Association's scientific
meeting in Dallas
Wednesday. Mid-stage
studies showed a
"dramatic and rapid in-
crease" in key indicators
of the process in which


bad cholesterol, or LDL,
is flushed from patients'
arteries.
"If this works, we
could save a lot of lives
and it could be very
good for the com-
pany commercially,"
Cuthbertson said in
an interview. "It's a big
priority for us."
The treatment is
Melbourne-based
CSL's first foray into
cholesterol-lowering
drugs, a global market
IMS Health valued at
$33.6 billion last year.
The product, if approved
following successful fur-
ther studies, may garner
annual sales of as much
as $500 million in its first
five years, according to
UBS AG.
"It's a huge market,"
said Andrew Goodsall,
a health care analyst
with UBS in Sydney, who
recommends investors
buy CSL shares. "For a
lot of investors, this is a
point of excitement."
Rapidly repairing
clogged and inflamed
arteries could save
lives. About a quarter of
patients die and half are


re-hospitalized in the
year after a heart attack,
a U.S. study presented in
May found.
Traditional cholester-
ol-lowering medicines,
or stations, such as
AstraZeneca Plc's Crestor,
don't act fast enough to
protect patients in the
first weeks after a heart
attack, when plaque in
other locations risks
dislodging and causing
deadly clots, said Philip
Aylward, a cardiologist
at the South Australian
Health and Medical
Research Institute in
Adelaide who will lead
further clinical studies
of the CSL product in
Australia. HDL-based
therapy may offer more
promise, according to
Aylward.
"We think that if you
can neutralize that
inflammatory and active
process than you may
produce benefits fairly
quickly," he said in an
interview.
Wednesday's presen-
tations described results
of a phase 2a study that
evaluated the effects
of a single-dose of the


CSL compound, called
CSL112, in 44 patients
with stable heart disease
over 90 days. In addition
to positive results for key
biological indicators, the
trial data also showed
the product was safe
and well tolerated, even
when patients took
other blood thinners, the
company said.
CSL aims to start a
phase 2b study in the
first half of 2014, ac-
cording to Cuthbertson.
That trial will compare
weekly doses of CSL112
with a placebo over four
weeks in about 1,200
heart-attack patients in
the U.S., Europe, Japan
and Australia. Results of
the research, which will
cost about $60 million
to $70 million, may be
ready by late 2015, he
said.
"Everything we have
seen so far encourages
us to take the next
step," Cuthbertson said.
"That's where the rubber
will hit the road because
we're looking at real
clinical endpoints like
death and second heart
attack."


WORLD


Kerry: US and
Karzai agree on
language for pact
WASHINGTON (AP) -
Secretary of State John
Kerry said Wednesday that
the U.S. and Afghanistan
have agreed on the lan-
guage of a bilateral secu-
rity pact that could clear
the way for thousands of
U.S. troops to train and
assist Afghan forces after
the NATO combat mission
ends in 2014.
The agreement is far
from complete. The
document now goes
to the Loya Jirga, a
3,000-member council
of elders that has the
right to revise or reject
any clause of the draft
agreement. Whatever they
agree upon then goes to
the Afghan parliament,
which could make still
more changes before the
agreement is approved.
On the U.S. side, only
the Obama administration
needs to approve the
agreement, but it could
reject changes made by
Afghan officials.

China expecting
a modest
baby boom

BEIJING (LA Times)-
At soon as Luo Yuannan
heard about the change
in China's one-child law,
she began to calculate
when it would be best for
her 2 /-year-old son to
get a baby sister, because,
like many modern
Chinese women, Luo is
pining for a girl.
"I was amazed," said
Luo, 31, who lives in
the southern city of
Shenzhen. "I always
wanted to have a second
child and now I will get
the chance."
If things go as planned,
a second child for Luo
could be part of a baby
boomlet for China. The
Chinese Communist
Party announced Friday
that, as part of a reform
package approved at the
third party plenum, it
would ease the one-child
policy to allow couples
in which either partner
is an only child to have a
second baby.

Official: Weapons
destruction at
sea possible
THE HAGUE,
Netherlands (AP) A
spokesman for the global
chemical weapons watch-
dog says destroying Syria's
stockpile of poison gas
and nerve agents at sea is
a possible alternative to
finding a country willing
to host the destruction.
The Organization
for the Prohibition of
Chemical Weapons aims
to destroy some 1,300
metric tons of Syrian toxic
agents by mid-2014, but
the plan was dealt a blow
last week when Albania
rejected a U.S. request
to host destruction.
Authorities in Belgium
and Norway also have
ruled their countries out
as locations for the risky
operation.
OPCW spokesman
Christian Chartier said
Wednesday the alterna-
tive of destruction at sea,
on a boat or floating rig,
is a "feasible" possibility.

Wave of attacks
in Iraqi capital kills
at least 35 people
BAGHDAD (AP)- A
wave of bombings hit
mainly Shiite commercial
areas in and outside
Baghdad on Wednesday,
killing at least 35 people,
Iraqi officials said.


The attacks, many of
which were car bombs,
were part of a surge in
violence that has rocked
Iraq over the past months
as insurgents seek to
thwart the Shiite-led
government's efforts to


stabilize the country.
Five of Wednesday's
blasts were parked car
bombs while at least
three were remotely
detonated bombs, police
officials said.

Tax rebels
underline French
opposition
PARIS (Bloomberg) -
Another week, another
round of protests in
France against President
Francois Hollande's tax
increases.
Farmers have threat-
ened to block roads into
Paris Thursday, saying
they're "fed up." Horse-
riding centers are set
to protest this weekend
against a higher sales tax,
an issue ambulance driv-
ers demonstrated against
earlier this week.
The swelling tax revolts
underscore the two-front
economic battle that has
made Hollande France's
least popular leader since
1958. He's under pressure
from the European Union
to cut the budget deficit
and from an electorate
squeezed by one of the
world's highest tax bur-
dens and unemployment
at a euro-era record. In
response, Prime Minister
Jean-Marc Ayrault said
yesterday that while the
government won't back
down on a sales levy set
for 2014, it will consider
overhauling the tax
system.

India: Gold bars
worth $1M found
in plane lavatory
NEW DELHI (AP)-
Cleaners found a stash of
24 gold bars worth more
than $1.1 million hidden
in an airplane lavatory af-
ter a flight from Bangkok
arrived in eastern India,
officials said Wednesday.
The Jet Airways plane
had landed in Kolkata
and was being cleaned
before a scheduled flight
to Patna when the clean-
ers found two bags with
the gold stashed inside,
Customs official Mona
Priyadarshini said.
Priyadarshini said
the gold bars weighed
around 1 kilogram each.
Customs officials confis-
cated the stash and are
investigating.
India is one of the
world's biggest con-
sumers of gold. The
government increased the
gold import duty recently,
which officials say has
encouraged smuggling.

Spending on
drugs may top
$1 trillion next year
(LA Times) -Global
spending on pharmaceuti-
cals is expected to surpass
$1 trillion for the first time
next year, propelled in large
part by the rising demand
for cheap generic drugs in
China and other emerging
markets, according to a
new forecast from the IMS
Institute for Healthcare
Informatics.
More than two-thirds
of all pharmaceutical
drug spending occurs in
eight countries: the U.S.,
Germany, France, Italy,
Britain, Spain, Japan and
China, the institute found.
Still, the next five years
will see two starkly different
trends in pharmaceutical
consumption, according to
the global forecast.
The U.S. will continue to
lead the world in per-capita
spending on pharmaceu-
ticals, largely because of its
heavy reliance on expensive,
brand-name drugs, the
institute predicts.
However, the rate of


growth in drug spending
in the U.S. and the rest of
the developed world will
continue to slow as generics
gain traction and, in Europe,
as austerity measures in
response to the economic
slowdown take hold.

NEWYORK (AP) -The
latest news from the
Federal Reserve spooked
investors Wednesday.
Stock and bond prices
fell after minutes from
the Fed's latest meeting
showed that the U.S.
economy was improv-
ing steadily enough to
warrant a reduction in
stimulus in "coming
months."
The Dow Jones indus-
trial average lost 66.21
points, or 0.4 percent, to
15,900.82. It was up 20
points shortly before the
minutes were released at
2 p.m. Eastern time.
The Standard & Poor's
500 index lost 6.50 points,
or 0.4 percent, to 1,781.37.

WASHINGTON
(Bloomberg) Federal
Reserve officials said they
might reduce their $85 billion
in monthly bond purchases
"in coming months" as the
economy improves, minutes
of their last meeting show.
Policy makers "generally
expected that the data would
prove consistent with the
Committee's outlook for
ongoing improvement in
labor market conditions
and would thus warrant
trimming the pace of pur-
chases in coming months,"
according to the record of
the Federal Open Market
Committee's Oct. 29-30 gath-
ering, released Wednesday in
Washington.
The FOMC is considering
how and when to taper asset
purchases without triggering

The Nasdaq lost 10.28

The market began the
day higher after an en-

sales and better news
from long-struggling J.C.
Penney.
Investors already know
the Fed will reduce its eco-
nomic stimulus eventual-
ly, yet they remain highly
sensitive to concrete
signals that a pullback is
imminent and worry that
the Fed might withdraw its
support before the econo-
my is ready.
Bond prices also
declined. The yield on
the benchmark 10-year
Treasury note rose


sharply, to 2.80 percent
from 2.71 percent just
before the minutes were
released. That's the high-
est since Sept. 17. Bond
yields rise when demand
for them falls.
The Fed's next policy
meeting is scheduled
for Dec. 17-18. Investors
are split on whether the
bank will vote to pull
back its bond purchases,
or "taper" them, as it is
sometimes called on Wall
Street. The Fed surprised
investors at its Sept. 17-18
meeting by keeping the
bond purchases in place,
despite widespread
predictions that it would
start to wind down the
program.

Shave and save


Worries of a Fed pullback

Men might com-
plain about
shaving, but all
they have to do is their
face. Women have to
shave their legs, which
make up about half
their body plus their
underarms and some-
times other parts, notes
ShopSmart, the shop-
ping magazine from the
publisher of Consumer
Reports.
And buying all those
razors, blades, creams
and other products
can really add up.
ShopSmart wanted
to find out where you
can get all of your
hair-removal supplies
for less. So it sent its
secret shoppers to price
24 items at drugstores
(CVS and Walgreens),
mass retailers (Target
and Walmart) and
online (Amazon.com,
Drugstore.com and
HarmonDiscount.com).
The shoppers also spot-
checked Costco and
Sam's Club.
The results: It pays to
order online. Amazon
was the big winner.
Some stores came close,
but the highest prices
were often much higher,
especially at CVS.

More ways
to save
One way to save
time and sometimes
money is to sign up
for a service that sends
you razors and blades
automatically no
remembering to reorder
required. Amazon.
com, Drugstore.com
and Soap.com all offer
subscription services.
Or you can try the
Dollar Shave Club, a
service aimed at guys
(and, unofficially, their
wives and girlfriends)
that sends members
a 30-day supply of its
private-label, stain-
less steel, lubricated
blades every month.
(ShopSmart hasn't
tested the products.)
Dollar Shave Club
is the brainchild of
Michael Dubin, a
former branding and
marketing exec who
co-founded it in 2011.
"I was fed up with the
high prices of compli-
cated shaving products,
not to mention the
hassle of picking them
up," he says. So he
launched a start-up that
slashes shaving costs
by buying high-quality,
no-frills blades directly
from manufacturers
and passing the savings
to members.
You sign up for a year,
but you can change
your mind anytime. The
club has 300,000 sub-
scribers so far, mostly
men, but 10 percent
are women. Dubin says
he'll consider expand-
ing into the women's
market, but for now
he recommends the
four-blade model for
them. Four cartridges
cost $6 a month (handle
included, with free
shipping).

New find in search for perfect puppy


LOS ANGELES (AP)
- Imagine the ideal
designer dog. It would
be smart, healthy and
hypoallergenic. It would
have the yap bred out
and longevity bred in.
And, most important,
it would never lose its
puppy face.
Enter the "cava-poo-
chon." The breed is the
newest and latest in the
decades-old search for
the dog-face fountain
of youth and perfect
pet accessory. But the
American Kennel Club
does not recognize the
new trend as an official
breed, and one expert
calls some specially bred
small dogs expensive
"gimmicks."
"There's always been
a market for these
forever-ish young dogs,"
said veteran trainer
Steve Haynes of Fidelio
Dog Works in Austin
who is working with
50 first-generation
cava-poo-chons. "Until
recently, specialized dogs
like miniature Yorkies
and miniature Maltese
were the go-to dogs."


The cava-poo-chon is
a cavalier King Charles
spaniel and bichon frise
mix bred with a minia-
ture poodle. With the
help of a geneticist and
reproductive veterinari-
an, the tribrid or "triple
cross" was created by
Linda and Steve Rogers
of Timshell Farm in Pine,
Ariz.
With a price tag
ranging from $2,000 to
$3,500, the cava-poo-
chon combines the best
of the three breeds,
Linda Rogers said. She
added that there is no
reason they can't live for
20 years. The dogs weigh
10-15 pounds on average
and the Rogerses offer a
choice of color and two
types of coat curly or
very curly, she said.
So far, 58 families have
returned to get a second
cava-poo-chon, and 12
of the dogs have been
certified to work in nurs-
ing homes and hospitals
as therapy dogs, Rogers
said.
Amy Wolf of Austin
says she found her
perfect dog in the breed.


This undated image provided by Linda Rogers shows Beau, a petite golden doodle dog. The cava-
poo-chon is a cavalier King Charles spaniel and bichon frise mix bred with a miniature poodle.
With the help of a geneticist and reproductive veterinarian, the tribrid or"triple cross"was
created by Linda and Steve Rogers of Timshell Farm in Pine, Ariz.


I can't tell you the
number of times a day I
look at her and say, 'You
are so cute.'"
Not only that, her
3-year-old named Callie
has become the love


of her husband's life
- despite his allergies -
and enchanted all their
new neighbors. She hired
Haynes as a trainer.
"Never have we had a
more loving, sweet dog.


She wants to say hello
to everyone," said Wolf,
who moved into a new
home with her husband
two months before
getting Callie. "We've
met tons of people while


walking her. We feel
much more connected
with this neighborhood
than the previous one,
all because of her. She
makes us more ap-
proachable, and we feel
a lot safer."
The popularity of the
baby look for dogs start-
ed more than a half-cen-
tury ago with mail-order
teacup pups advertised
in the backs of maga-
zines. Yorkies, Maltese
and Pomeranians were
popular for a while, and
recently there have been
hybrid hounds "with
cutesy names that end in
'-oodle,' '-uddle' or '-poo'
that come with thou-
sand-dollar price tags,"
said author and certified
animal behavior consul-
tant Darlene Arden of
Massachusetts.
Arden said she was
unfamiliar with the
cava-poo-chon, though
she applauded the use of
a geneticist.
But she condemned
"gimmicks" that some
breeders and groomers
use to attract unwitting
buyers.


Billionaire Tito plans manned mission to Mars


(Washington Post) -
Billionaire Dennis Tito,
tired of being told that
we can't send humans
to Mars just yet, on
Wednesday revealed his
scheme for launching
two astronauts to the
red planet as early as
December 2017.
Dubbed "Inspiration
Mars," the fly-by mission
would exploit a rare
alignment of Earth and
Mars that minimizes the
time and the fuel it would


take to get to Mars and
back home again. The
astronauts would come
within 100 miles of the
Martian surface before
being slung back to Earth.
"It would be a voyage
of around 800 million
miles around the sun in
501 days," Tito testified
Wednesday at a hearing
of the House subcommit-
tee on space. "No longer
is a Mars fly-by mission
just one more theoretical
idea. It can be done. Not


in a matter of decades,
but in a few years."
Grab this opportunity
or risk seeing China get
to Mars first, the space
buff told the members of
Congress.
The plan has a lot of
moving parts, and would
require cooperation
from NASA and a great
deal of NASA hardware.
The agency is building a
jumbo rocket, the Space
Launch System (SLS),
that is supposed to be


ready for its inaugural,
uncrewed test flight in
2017. Tito's plan would
essentially borrow the
SLS for the Mars mission.
NASA officials did not
immediately respond to
Tito's detailed proposal.
In late October, in
response to questions
about possible collabo-
ration Inspiration Mars
and NASA, the agency
released a cautiously
worded statement,
saying, "The agency will


continue discussions with
them to see how NASA
might collaborate on mu-
tually-beneficial activities
that could complement
NASAs human space-
flight, space technology
and Mars exploration
plans. The agency has not
made any commitments
to Inspiration Mars relat-
ed to launch vehicles."
Tito's Inspiration
Mars Foundation
released a feasibility
studyWednesday that


concluded that NASAs
new Orion capsule
wouldn't meet the
mission requirements as
the primary habitat for
the astronauts. Instead,
Tito's organization would
use the new Cygnus
capsule developed by
Virginia-based Orbital
Corp. (formerly Orbital
Sciences), which just re-
cently made a successful,
uncrewed cargo-hauling
trip to the international
space station.

Pirates carve out own identity


By ROB SHORE
SPORTS WRITER
PORT CHARLOTTE If it's all the
same to you, Port Charlotte quarter-
back Traige McClary would rather
not be known as Troy's little brother.
So he's spent the last two sea-
sons writing his own legend. He's
hoping there are still a few more
chapters left, starting Friday night
against Melbourne in a Region 3A-3
semifinal.
McClary shuns comparisons with
Troy they get along fine thanks,

but they're not the same.
"I just feel like we're two different
people," McClary said. "I'm my own
person, he's his own person. He
plays a different position than I do."
Troy played running back for the


2008 Charlotte squad that reached
the regional final Traige knows the
history, he watched it all, including
Troy's famous 87-yard punt return
that beat Venice.
That's all well and good, but
McClary wants his own time now.
"I'm just following my own
footsteps," he said.
But watching big brother gave
him an early appreciation for what
he's going through now in the
postseason.

* YOUTH FOOTBALL: Charlotte Warriors


Jeremiah Harvey and his Charlotte Warriors pee wee teammates warm up before practice on Monday night. The Warriors play Saturday in the Division 1 regional.





They might be giants


By BARBARA BOXLEITNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The Charlotte Warriors of Pop
Warner football have risen to the
challenge this season.
The Warriors will try to do so
again Saturday when the Pee
Wee team plays the Richmond
Giants of the Greater Miami Pop
Warner in the Division 1 regional
in North Miami.
A win means the team plays in
the Southeast Region champi-
onship on Nov. 29 at 6:30 p.m. in
St. Cloud, according to a playoff
schedule on the region's Pop
Warner online site.
The Warriors moved from
Division 2 to Division 1 this
season. Realignments occur
based on the success of whole
organizations, said Rocky Felker,


The Warriors won the Peace
River Conference championship
by defeating the Sarasota Sun
Devils, one of two teams they
beat twice this season.
They had a solid nucleus
return and have eight two-way
players, Felker said. "We expect-
ed to be very, very good," he
said. "We were better prepared
this year."
The coaches cited structure for
the boys' success. "They've had
the talent," Felker said. "It's just
been the discipline, the focus
during practices and games."
Balcomb added, 'Attention to
details, showing up to practice
on team and being prepared.
They seemed to make big
strides."
PEEWEE 16


a 22-year coach in his first year
leading this squad.
Defensive coordinator and
offensive line coach Bo Balcomb
said the bump to the higher
division was a boost. "They (the
players) didn't really respect it as
much," he said about Division 2.
"This year every game they went
into, they respected it more.
They felt it was going to be a
bigger challenge."
Bryan Perry, president of
the Charlotte Warriors board
of directors, has seen the way
the players responded to the
challenge. His daughter is on the
cheer squad. "It put the kids in a
mindset if they want to win, they


have to earn it," he said.
Saturday's game marks a
return of a Charlotte team to
the regionals. The Midget squad
lost in the Division 1 regional
in 2009, according to Perry, and
the Pee Wees won the Division 2
national championship in 2003.
These Warriors went 10-0,
dominating opponents so much
that there was a running clock
by halftime or third quarter
every game, team parent Janelle
Scribner reported. The running
clock starts when a team is
ahead by 28 points and is "not
that common in a traditional
season" during every game,
Perry said.

DAVIE -A restless
Richie Incognito sat
with Miami Dolphins
teammate Mike Pouncey
watching their team's
most recent game on
TV, and contemplating
the strange sequence of
events that reduced them
to couch potatoes.
"Richie looked over

Dolphins play,'" Pouncey
said Wednesday. "I was
like, 'It's unbelievable, bro.
I had never pictured this
ever in my life.' We got a
laugh out of it."
Sidelined by a gall
bladder illness, Pouncey
said he watched Sunday's
victory over San Diego at
his house with Incognito,
who was suspended for
his role in the team's
bullying scandal.
"He's doing really good,"
Pouncey said. "He's in

and play football. Richie

bank on that all the time. Eventually
it's gonna catch up with you."
The 17th-ranked Knights (8-1,
5-0 American) still set atop the
American Athletic Conference
as they prepare to matchup with
Rutgers (5-4, 2-3), a team that has
largely underachieved this season.
After starting the season 4-1,
Rutgers has dropped three of its
last four games. Last week was a
particularly humbling 52-17 loss at
home to Cincinnati.

Eagles pick up three early signees


STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS
The early signing period
for men's basketball in un-
der way and Florida Gulf
Coast has netted three
recruits for next season.
They might not see much
playing time next year
because the Eagles will re-
turn everybody but senior
Chase Fieler, but here's a
look at the recruits:
Zach Johnson: The
6-foot-2 guard from
Miami was rated the No. 1


prospect in South Florida
by RMF Magazine. He
averaged 13.3 points, 4.1
assists and 2.7 steals per
game at Miami Norland
High School last year.
Christian Terrell: The
6-foot-4 guard from
Jacksonville averaged 11.2
points, 6 rebounds and
4 assists per game last
season as at Jacksonville
Providence High School,
where he helped lead the
team to the Class 3A state
championship. He's also


known for this dunk.
Eric Moeller: The
6-foot-11 forward from St.
Louis will have three years
of eligibility after trans-
ferring in from Central
Florida Community
College, where he is cur-
rently a freshman. Moeller
red-shirted last season as
a walk-on at Missouri.

Teen golfer Lydia Ko




now plays for dough


By DOUG FERGUSON
ASSOCIATED PRESS
NAPLES -Lydia Ko
didn't need to wait for the
prize money to be distrib-
uted to realize why this
week is so different on the
LPGA Tour.
She was reminded in
the airport by a question
she has heard dozens of
times. The 16-year-old
from New Zealand was
clearing customs when the
agent asked her purpose
for coming to the United
States. She told him she
was playing in a golf
tournament.
"He says, Are you a
professional?' I was like,
'Yeah, I am.' So that was
the biggest thing," Ko said
Wednesday. "I never said
that before."
When the agent inquired
about her game, the teen-
ager with maturity beyond
her years mentioned she
was No. 5 in the women's
world ranking. Clearly, this
is no ordinary pro debut.
Not since MichelleWie
played her first LPGA
Tour event as a pro in
2005, just two days after
she turned 16 has there
been so much buzz about
a newcomer. But their age
and South Korean heritage
are about all they have in
common.
Wie already had signed
lucrative endorsement

Scott,


Kuchar


favored

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
MELBOURNE, Australia
- On current form and on
a very familiar golf course,
the two top-ranked
players in the World Cup
- Adam Scott and Matt
Kuchar are heavy favor-
ites for individual honors
when play begins today at
Royal Melbourne.
The second-ranked
Scott has won two tour-
naments in a row the
Australian PGA and the
Australian Masters, which
was held last week at
Royal Melbourne.
Seventh-ranked Kuchar
led by two strokes late
in the final round of the
Masters before a double-
bogey on 18 enabled Scott
to defend his title. Kuchar
finished second.

Short Jr. leads
Champions qualifying: In
Scottsdale, Ariz., Wes ShortJr. had
birdies on his last two holes for a
5-under 66 at the Champions Tour's
national qualifying tournament at
TPC Scottsdale. Short led at 12 under.
Former Lemon bay golf coach Doug
Dunakey shot 71 and is eight strokes
of the lead.

deals with Nike and Sony.
Ko doesn't even have an
agent, much less a cor-
porate contract. She wore
a cap promoting golf in
New Zealand for a news
conference carried live by
Golf Channel.
The biggest difference is
that Ko is already proven
to be one of the top players
in women's golf. She won
the Canadian Women's
Open against a strong field
last year at 15, making her
the youngest winner of an
LPGA event. She defended
her title this summer, and
she was runner-up in an
LPGA major at the Evian
Championship. Ko also
has two other professional
wins in Australia and New
Zealand.
"I don't think Lydia has

anything to prove," Suzann
Pettersen said. "She's
already proven she's good
enough to be out there on
a regular basis."
LPGA Tour commission-
er Mike Whan waived the
minimum age requirement
of 18 for Ko. The last player
given that waiver was Lexi
Thompson, who now is
18 and won last week in
Mexico for the second time
this year.
Ko starts her pro career
today at Tiburon Golf Club
with Wie (now 24) and
19-year-old Jessica Korda.
She also is playing a
tournament in Taiwan to
close out her year, and
then she will play a full
schedule mixed in with
high school. She has one
more year remaining,
though her mother has not
ruled out going to college
while playing the tour, as
Wie did at Stanford.
For now, she is testing
different equipment and
trying to decide her best
path with management
and endorsements. She is
in no rush. One other deci-
sion is where to live while
playing the LPGA Tour. It's
a 16-hour commute from
New Zealand.
Just her luck, she
met one of her favorite
players, Phil Mickelson,
while in San Diego to test
equipment.

he'll be all right."
Pouncey rejoined the
team Wednesday after
spending three nights
in the hospital, and he
worked on the side during
practice. He said he's
feeling better and hopes
to play Sunday against the
Carolina Panthers.
His illness was the latest
setback in an eventful
year for the Dolphins'
center. Following the
Dolphins' game at New
England on Oct. 27,
Pouncey was served with
a grand jury subpoena
related to the criminal
case involving his friend
and former University of
Florida teammate, Aaron
Hernandez.
The next day, Martin
abruptly left the team
and the bullying scandal
began to mushroom,
subjecting Pouncey and
the rest of the offensive
line to national scrutiny.
"If I make through 2013
without having a heart
attack, that'll be good,"
Pouncey said with a laugh.
The NFL Players
Association will conduct
its own investigation
into the scandal, led by
Richard Smith, outside
counsel for the union in
the New Orleans Saints
bounty case, a person
familiar with the situation
said. The person spoke to
The Associated Press on
condition of anonymity
because the union hadn't
announced its plans.
Smith will examine the
roles of coach Joe Philbin,
his staff and Miami
management. One issue
is whether anyone on the
coaching staff ordered
Incognito to toughen up
Martin, a second-year
tackle from Stanford who
became a starter as a
rookie but played poorly
at times.
Wells was appointed
by Commissioner Roger
Goodell to investigate
after Dolphins owner
Stephen Ross asked the
league to look into the
case. Martin spent nearly
seven hours with Wells on
Friday in New York.
Wells will also interview
Incognito, who can be
suspended without pay
by the Dolphins for up
to four weeks. He has
missed two games so
far including the one he
watched with Pouncey.
Pouncey said it was the
first game he sat out since
he was 6 years old. He lost
five pounds because of his
illness.
"It's the worst diet ever
... just bland soup," he
said. "It started out as
food poisoning, I think,
and they ran a bunch of
tests and found a couple
of other things. But we're
going to get through it. ...
I feel great, I feel like I'm
Mike Pouncey again."
The Dolphins (5-5) have
won two of their three
games since Martin's
departure and are in
contention for an AFC
wild-card berth.

Rainey runneth over

TAMPA- Playing for
his third team in less
than two seasons, Bobby
Rainey is making the most
of an opportunity to prove
he belongs in the NFL.
He has helped the
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
win two in a row following
an 0-8 start. He's averaging
more than 5 yards per
carry since being plucked
from the waiver wire and
thrust into the lineup be-
cause of injuries to Doug
Martin and Mike James.
The former Western
Kentucky standout
entered the league as an
undrafted college free
agent, wound up sporting
a Super Bowl ring before
appearing in his first
regular-season game and
scored the winning touch-
down in Tampa Bay's first
victory.
On Sunday, the 5-foot-8,
212-pounder rushed for
163 yards and scored three
TDs in a 41-28 rout of
the Atlanta Falcons. The
performance earned him
NFC offensive player of
the week honors, an-
nounced Tuesday.
Rainey has heard his en-
tire life that he's too small
to excel in a big man's
game. He was released by
the Baltimore Ravens and

Cleveland Browns before
landing in Tampa Bay, and
never doubted himself
"My idol is Barry
Sanders. I like all the small
running backs -Warrick
Dunn, all those type of
guys. And the one we just
played (Atlanta's Jacquizz
Rodgers), he's small, too,"
Rainey said. "He told me:
'We've got to represent
for the short guys.' And
I told him, 'Most defi-
nitely. We've got to stick
together.'"
Rainey was promoted to
Baltimore's active roster in
October 2012 but suffered
a season-ending knee
injury before the Ravens,
who went on to win the
Super Bowl.
The 26-year-old was
released by the Browns
last month and signed
with the Bucs the day after
Martin suffered a shoulder
injury that will sideline
him the rest of the season.
"I don't look at it as
Trent Richardson is there


or Ray Rice is there. It's
competition," Rainey said.
"If you're in front of me,
my goal is to get in front of
you, period. That's the way
the game is. I don't get
into the names because at
the end of the day, it's still
football.... I just use it as
motivation."
The diminutive running
back was pressed into
action when James went
down with a broken ankle
during the first quarter
of Tampa Bay's Monday
night game against Miami.
The night before the
Dolphins game, Rainey
got a call from his former
college coach Willie
Taggart, who's in his
first season at nearby
South Florida, which also
plays its home games at
Raymond James Stadium.
"I told him what I tell
our football team," Taggart
said. "The spotlight does
strange things to some
people. Some people show
up and show out, and
some people hide in the
spotlight. You've only got
one time to make a first
impression, Bobby. Make
them know your name."
Tampa Bay has rushed
for at least 140 yards in
three consecutive games
for the first time since
2005. Rainey feels fortu-
nate to be a part of that.
And so do the Bucs.

AP: Fielder


to


ers


for Kinsler


By NOAH TRISTER
ASSOCIATED PRESS
DETROIT -The Detroit
Tigers and Texas agreed
to a blockbuster trade
Wednesday night that
would send slugger Prince
Fielder to the Rangers
for second baseman Ian
Kinsler, according to a
person with knowledge of
the deal.
The person spoke on
condition of anonymity
because no announce-
ment had been made.
Fielder signed a $214
million, nine-year
contract with the Tigers
before the 2012 season
that includes a limited
no-trade provision, and
the big first baseman was
set to approve the deal.
Kinsler just finished
the first season of a $75
million, five-year contract.
It's the first head-
line-grabbing move of
baseball's offseason, and
it involves two of the
American League's top
teams. Detroit has won
three consecutive AL
Central titles and reached
the World Series in 2012,
while Texas won the AL
pennant in 2010 and 2011.
But neither team was
about to stand pat. With
stars like Fielder, Justin
Verlander, Miguel Cabrera
and Anibal Sanchez in the
fold, Detroit's payroll had
become one of the game's


UCF
FROM PAGE 1
The Scarlet Knights
have been banged up in
recent weeks, but coach
Kyle Flood said they were
mending as best they can.
"I'm not worried
about is mentally in this
football," Rutgers coach
Kyle Flood said this week.
"From a health standpoint
you're always on the edge
this time of year...you're
always an injury from
being younger than you
are."
One thing UCF is
hoping to lean on over
these final three weeks of
the regular season are the
senior class' memories of
UCF's disappointing 5-7
campaign in 2011 that
saw it endure six losses by
seven points or less.
They've won five games
by that margin this
season.
O'Leary said this year's
team is more skilled at
quarterback, has better
playmakers and a more
capable offensive line


biggest, and although
Fielder hit 55 home runs
over the last two years for
the Tigers, his numbers
dipped this season and he
struggled in the playoffs
when Detroit lost to
Boston in the AL champi-
onship series.
The trade could give
Detroit more financial
flexibility, with Cy Young
Award winner Max
Scherzer a year from free
agency.
Fielder, however, is still
only 29, and the Rangers
would be adding a big
bat to the middle of their
lineup while also resolving
a logjam in the middle
of their infield. Jurickson
Profar, a highly touted
20-year-old prospect,
appeared to be blocked
by Kinsler and shortstop
Elvis Andrus. Now Profar
should have a chance to
play regularly.
The Tigers signed
Fielder to a huge contract
shortly before spring
training in 2012 after
designated hitter Victor
Martinez injured his knee.
Martinez came back in
2013. With Fielder gone,
Cabrera may move from
third base back to first.
Kinsler fills a need at
second base for Detroit af-
ter Omar Infante became
a free agent.

which has helped it be on
the favorable side of tight
games.
Senior captain and
offensive lineman Justin
McCray said he believes
despite the close scrapes,
their toughness has
tightened.
"I think the experience,
especially on the offensive
side is great because we
have a lot of players that
have just played a lot of
games," he said. "We know
how it feels, especially
with the 2011 year, being
in all those close games
and not coming out on
top. We know how to just
find a way to find victory."
Though he's not a
senior, a lot of that mettle
has also come from junior
quarterback Blake Bortles,
who followed up a rocky
outing against Houston
with one of his best in
leading the Knights' to a
win against Temple last
week.
O'Leary said as
nerve-racking as the past
two games have been, he
doesn't need to say much
to focus his team.

the end of a disappointing season.
The longtime rivals have traded
places for Thursday's prime-time game.
With coach Sean Payton back on
the sideline and Drew Brees as good as
ever, New Orleans (8-2) leads the NFC

for the best record in the conference.


The Falcons, on the other hand,
are trying to figure out how a team
that started the season with Super

for the top pick in next year's draft.

Reed was waived by the Texans in

Reed said, "The truth is the truth.

HEAT KEEP SIZZLING

James scores 21, Bosh adds 18 as Miami wins fifth straight


By TIM REYNOLDS

ORLANDO LeBron James
scored 21 points and handed out
seven assists, Chris Bosh scored
18 points and the Miami Heat
beat the Orlando Magic 120-92
on Wednesday night for their fifth
straight victory.
James Jones scored 14 of his 17
points in the third quarter, when
the Heat turned what was a five-
point game into a runaway.
All five Miami starters sat out
the fourth quarter for the second
straight night, and Dwyane Wade
sat out the whole way once again
to give his knees more rest.
Michael Beasley scored 14 points
and Chris Andersen added 10 for
the Heat, who opened the game on
a 16-0 run, lost the lead briefly in
the second quarter, then dominat-
ed after halftime.
Arron Afflalo scored 20 of his 30
points in the first half for Orlando,
and made 7 of 9 shots from 3-point
range. Victor Oladipo scored 20
points, though had eight turnovers,
giving him 17 in his past two
games.
Jameer Nelson scored 17 for the
Magic.
Jones started in Wade's place and
went 4 for 5 from beyond the arc in
the third quarter alone, including
back-to-back 3s that helped blow
the game open. After connecting
to make it 68-57, Jones took a pass
from James, watched Nelson sail
past after falling victim to a head

fake, then coolly hit another 3 to
extend Miami's lead to 14.
"That's what happens when you
double," James shouted, and the
Heat didn't lose control again.
Just as was the case Tuesday
against Atlanta, Heat coach Erik
Spoelstra let the second unit finish
the game off in the fourth. The win
improved Spoelstra's career record
to 269-137, inching him past the
legendary Red Auerbach for fifth
on the NBA's all-time winning
percentage list for coaches.
Spoelstra's winning percent-
age is now .663; Auerbach's was
.662. Only Phil Jackson, Billy
Cunningham, Gregg Popovich and
K.C. Jones have better percentages.
James reached double figures for
the 507th straight game, one shy
of matching Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
for the fifth-longest streak in NBA
history.
The Heat, who struggled with
starts of games at the beginning of
the season, came out flying.
Miami made its first seven shots,
Orlando missed its first six, and
the end result was a 16-0 Heat lead
a mere 4:02 after tipoff. It was the


first time all season that the Heat
opened with more than two unan-
swered points to begin a game.
And within a few minutes, the
margin was all gone.
Afflalo got the Magic on the
board with a pair of free throws,
the first points in what became
a 14-point outburst in a span of
61/2 minutes for Orlando's leading
scorer. When Maurice Harkless hit
a free throw with 7:55 left in the
half, Orlando had its first lead at
32-31.
It became Orlando's only lead,
lasting all of 48 seconds. Miami
rebuilt a 10-point edge twice over
the remainder of the half, before
taking a 54-49 lead into halftime.
From there, it was all Miami.
There was one 12-minute stretch
where Orlando outscored Miami
32-15. Take that away, and the Heat
outscored the Magic 105-60.

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK -Paul
George made three
throws to tie it with 5.2
seconds left in regula-
tion, then scored nine
of his season-high 35
points in overtime as the
Indiana Pacers pulled
out a 103-96 victory
Wednesday night over
the New York Knicks,
who dropped their sixth
straight at home.
New York scored the
first 13 points, but this
settled into a playoff-type
game between teams
who met in the postsea-
son last May. And it again
went to the Pacers, who
bounced back from their
first loss after a fran-
chise-record 9-0 start.
George Hill added
23 points and eight
rebounds for the Pacers,
who beat the Knicks in
six games in last season's


Eastern Conference
semifinals. Just as in
the clincher of that
series, Roy Hibbert had a
pivotal block on Carmelo
Anthony's drive to the
basket.
Anthony had 30 points
and 18 rebounds for
the Knicks, who looked
completely deflated
after they couldn't score
following the free throws
George made when Iman
Shumpert was called for
fouling him.
George then put away
the Knicks in overtime,
keeping them winless
at home since beating
Milwaukee on Oct. 30 in
their season opener.
J.R. Smith had 21
points, and Beno Udrih
scored a season-high 19
for the Knicks, including
a go-ahead shot with
1:21 left in regulation.
The Knicks protected the
lead through a couple of
missed 3-pointers by Hill,
and Anthony made two
free throws for an 89-86
lead with 9.2 seconds
left.

Hawks 93, Pistons 85: In


Atlanta, Paul Millsap, signed in the
offseason to replace Josh Smith, had
19 points to steal the spotlight in
Smith's return to Atlanta, leading
the Hawks over Detroit. Smith, who
signed with Detroit after nine seasons
with the Hawks, had 11 points while
shooting 5 of 15 from the field.

Bobcats 95, Nets 91: In
Charlotte, N.C., Kemba Walker
scored a season-high 31 points and
Charlotte handed turnover-prone
Brooklyn its sixth loss in the past
seven games. Walker was 12 of 20
from the field and knocked down
four 3-pointers as the Bobcats (6-6)
snapped a seven-game losing streak
to the Nets.

Raptors 108, 76ers 98: In
Philadelphia, DeMar DeRozan scored
33 points and Rudy Gay had 18 to
help Toronto beat Philadelphia. In
a down year so far in the Atlantic
Division, the Raptors (5-7) wrested
away first place from the Sixers (5-8).

Wizards 98, Cavaliers 91: In
Cleveland, Bradley Beal scored 26
points and Nene added 24, leading
Washington over Cleveland. John
Wall and Martell Webster both scored
15 points for Washington, which took
control early and held off Cleveland's
late charge.


Trail Blazers 91, Bucks
82: In Milwaukee, LaMarcus
Aldridge scored 21 points, Damian
Lillard added 17 and Portland beat
Milwaukee for its eighth straight
win. Wesley Matthews had 15 points,
all in the first half, to help Portland
complete a sweep of a four-game
Eastern Conference road trip. The Trail
Blazers have won 10 of 12 to start
the season.

Pelicans 105, Jazz 98: In New
Orleans, Anthony Davis had 22 points,
nine rebounds and eight blocks, and
New Orleans won its second straight
game over struggling Utah. Ryan
Anderson added 14 of his 19 points in
the second half to help the Pelicans
pull away in the fourth quarter after
the Jazz, which beat New Orleans for
its only win of the season last week,
had rallied to take a third-quarter
lead.

Clippers 102, Timberwolves
98: In Minneapolis, Blake Griffin had
20 points and 10 rebounds while
dominating his matchup with Kevin
Love and Chris Paul scored 16 points
in the fourth quarter to lead the Los
Angeles Clippers over Minnesota.
Paul finished with 20 points and 11
assists for his 12th straight double-
double to open the season, breaking
Magic Johnson's previous mark of 11
straight in 1990-91.

Jason Pominville had the other goal,
and Zach Parise had two assists.
Milan Michalek scored on the
power play as the teams approached
the midway point of the third period
to pull the Senators even with the
Wild. It appeared that goal would at
least get the Senators to overtime.
Kyle Turris and Mika Zibanejad also
scored for the Senators (8-10-4), who
have lost three straight.

IAI12 dead after Algeria World Cup riots

Algerian people celebrate their victory on Tuesday after the
World Cup qualifying playoff second leg soccer match against
Burkina Faso, in Algiers.


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ALGIERS, Algeria Raucous
celebrations after Algeria qualified
for the 2014 World Cup finals
were linked to the deaths of 12
people and some 240 injured,
authorities reported Wednesday, as
soccer-mad fans poured into the
streets and revelers raced their cars
and honked.
Women ululated in joy and peo-
ple waved Algerian flags in victory
after the North African country
defeated Burkina Faso on Tuesday
night.
In a country where political
rallies are ill-attended without
some kind of financial incentive,
nothing gets people into the streets
like a soccer championship, with
celebrations for ordinary club
championships going on well into
the night in some neighborhoods.
Most of the injuries and deaths


were young men in traffic acci-
dents, according to emergency
services, typically from speeding
around crowded city streets or the
rain-slicked winding roads in the
mountains.

Mexico qualifies for 6th straight World Cup:
In Wellington, New Zealand, Mexico needed to travel
an extra 14,000 miles to reach next year's World Cup.
Ninety seconds from elimination last month, El Tri
earned the next-to-last berth in the 32-nation field
by defeating New Zealand 4-2 on Wednesday night
for a 9-3 aggregate win in their home-and-home
playoff.
"We were expecting to be in the World Cup a long
time ago, but it wasn't like that/Mexican goalkeeper
Moises Munoz said."So we had to play a couple of
games more to be there. It was really tough, and we
expected it to be tough here in New Zealand."
Oribe Peralta had a first-half hat trick, giving
him five goals in the playoff and 10 in qualifying,
one behind co-leaders Robin van Persie of the
Netherlands, Luis Suarez of Uruguay and Deon
McCaulay of Belize.


Uruguay becomes final team to qualify for
WCup: In Montevideo, Uruguay, Uruguay claimed
the 32nd and final place at next year's World Cup in
Brazil with a 0-0 draw against Jordan in the second
leg of an intercontinental playoff.
Uruguay, which won 5-0 a week ago in Jordan,
advanced on a 5-0 aggregate over two legs as Jordan
defended compactly throughout Wednesday's match.
Uruguay finished fourth at the 2010 World Cup,
the best finish of any South American team.

Some Croatian fans cheer WCup with
pro-Nazi chants: In Zagreb, Croatia, Croatia's World
Cup qualification celebrations have been overshad-
owed by apparent pro-Nazi chants by some fans and
defender Joe Simunic.
Croatia qualified for the World Cup with a 2-0
win over Iceland on Tuesday. Video footage shows
Simunic taking a microphone to the field after the
match and shouting to the fans: "For the homeland!"
The fans respond: "Ready!"
That was the war call used by Ustashas, the
Croatian pro-Nazi puppet regime that ruled the state
during World War II when tens of thousands Jews,
Serbs and others perished in concentration camps.

A-ROD BOLTS

GRIEVANCE HEARING

NEWYORK (AP) -Alex
Rodriguez benched him-
self at his own grievance
hearing.
The New York
Yankees star walked
out in the middle of
a session Wednesday,
furious arbitrator Fredric
Horowitz refused to order
baseball Commissioner
Bud Selig to testify. The
move, followed by angry
statements accusing Selig
of bias and the entire ar-
bitration process of flaws,
appeared to be a prelude
to a lawsuit challenging
whatever ruling Horowitz
makes on A-Rod's 211-
game suspension.
Horowitz was in the
midst of the third week of
hearings on the grievance
filed by the players'
association to overturn
the penalty given to the
three-time AL MVP by
Major League Baseball
in August for alleged
violations of the sport's
drug agreement and labor
contract.
"I lost my mind. I
banged a table and kicked
a briefcase and slammed
out of the room,"
Rodriguez said during a
40-minute interview on
WFAN radio. "I probably
overreacted, but it came
from the heart."
Rodriguez has not
testified in the grievance
and said he had been
warned that repeating his
denials of wrongdoing
on the stand could result
in attempts at additional
discipline by MLB....
The Tampa Bays Rays announced
that former Charlotte Stone Crabs
left-handed pitcher C.J. Riefenhauser
and right-handers Jesse Hahn and
Kirby Yates were added to the 40-man
roster. Infielder Vince Belnome was
also added to the 40-man roster.
Meanwhile, catcher Mayo Acosta
and right-handers Mark Lowe, Victor
Mateo, Sam Runion, Mike Colla, Eduar
Quinonez and Albert Suarez signed
minor league contracts ...
Josh Johnson and the San Diego
Padres finalized on a $8 million,
one-year contract that landed the
team a top-of-the-rotation pitcher.

The St. Louis Cardinals gave
manager Mike Matheny a three-year
contract extension, rewarding him for
deep postseason runs in his first two
seasons in the job. The team also said
that 2005 NL CyYoung Award winner
Chris Carpenter is retiring.


BOXING

Pacquiao, Rios camps come
to blows: In Macau, Manny
Pacquiao trainer Freddie Roach was
in a physical altercation with the
entourage of opponent Brandon Rios
on Wednesday, four days before their
fight.
Roach approached Rios trainer
Robert Garcia in the gym that both
camps are sharing at The Venetian
casino on Macau's Cotai Strip, saying
they had gone past their scheduled
time and should leave.
Video of the incident shows a
heated argument before Roach was
kicked in the upper body by Alex
Ariza, a member of the Rios camp
who formerly worked with Roach.

Junior


reaping


summer


rewards

By DAWN KLEMISH
SUN CORRESPONDENT
NORTH PORT -When
most people were enjoying
their summer, Lorena
Marra was working hard to
step up her game.
The North Port High
School junior guard spent
countless hours in the gym
and when she wasn't there,
Marra was out on the track
or in the weight room.
Anything she could do to
improve her skills, and
Bobcats coach Tom Tintor
can see it has paid off in a
big way even this early in
the season.
"Lorena has really come
on," he said. "She's always
had all the skills, but this
summer she put in a lot
of extra work and she's
just playing with so much
more confidence than
before. She's not afraid to
take a shot, or to take the
ball to the hole.
"It surprises me. It's a
pleasant surprise but it
doesn't shock me."
Marra and her sister,
Marlena, who also plays on
the varsity, ran stairs and
played pickup games. The
elder Marra saw returns
for her labor in the season
opener Tuesday, when
she scored 12 points and
had four steals in the first
quarter alone.
"I worked out with 40
pounds of weight on my
back, I ran miles, I did
stairs, all just to improve
on my game," she said. "I
was in the gym all day. I
feel a lot more confident
now, and I think I'm jelling
with the team more this
year than last year, that
really helps."

Fabulous frosh: A lot of
Charlotte's success this season will
depend on how well the team's
underclassmen can acclimate to varsity
life. Tarpons coach Mike Robishaw
was pleased to see that things are
progressing with his freshman class
efforts during a loss to North Port.
"I was glad the way the freshman
were able to come out in the second half
and play better/he said. "You can see
the frustration on all of the girls faces
but I was very proud of the way they still



PIRATES
FROM PAGE 1
"Back then, I really
didn't know what playoffs
were in high school,"
McClary said with a big
grin. "Now, I've got the feel
of it since I was with him."
He isn't the only Pirate
with ties to that team.
Senior cornerback-run-
ning back Ian Tyler is the
cousin of Mike Bellamy,
who led the Tarpons in
rushing that year.
But the thing with histo-
ry is it's all in the past.
Port Charlotte coach
Jordan Ingman has no
issue as all with McClary
forging his own identity as
a player.
"I do think it's a good
thing (to be your own
man)," Ingman said. "I
think a quarterback's got
to be a strong personality
as far as being able to
carry a football team."
So far, he has done just
that, with 17 combined
running and passing
touchdowns on the sea-
son. He's been the perfect
triggerman for the Pirates'
spread attack.
McClary just smiled
when asked if he was the
right player to spearhead
Port Charlotte's offense.
"We have playmakers all
over the offense," McClary
said. "We have various

* COLLEGE FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK




Police criticized




for Winston probe


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE -The
family and attorney of
the alleged victim in a
sexual assault investi-
gation involving Florida
State quarterback Jameis
Winston on Wednesday
sharply criticized
Tallahassee police in their
first public comments
about the case.
The lengthy family
statement said their
attorney, Patricia Carroll,
was warned by police that
Tallahassee was a "big
football town and the
victim needs to think long
and hard before proceed-
ing against him because
she will be raked over the
coals and her life will be
made miserable."
The statement which
was first provided to the
Tampa Bay Times, also
said the woman "cannot


fathom" why local prose-
cutors were not told about
the investigation involving
Winston until last week.
Winston's attorney has
repeatedly maintained his
client has done nothing
wrong.
Several city officials
- including the interim
police chief- held a
hastily arranged press
conference on Wednesday
evening but they refused
to respond to the specific
allegations made against
city police.
Tom Coe, the interim
police chief, contended
that the case was put on
hold last February when
the accuser "broke off
contact" and Carroll "in-
dicated" that the woman
"did not want to move
forward at that time."
Coe, without addressing
any specifics, said state-
ments are being made
about the case and "some


are not factual."
"We fully understand
there is immense interest
in this nationwide case,"
Coe said. "...My role as
police chief is to protect
the rights of everyone
involved, the integrity of
this investigation and to
make sure it's conducted
fairly and impartially and
we try to get the truth in
this case."
The No. 2-ranked
Seminoles (1-0) play
Idaho on Saturday in
Tallahassee.

Around the nation: Florida
coach Will Muschamp said quarter-
back Tyler Murphy's injured throwing
shoulder is"much, much, much
improved"but remains questionable
to play Saturday against Georgia
Southern. ...

The coaches believe
the Warriors match up
well against the Giants, "a
very big, physical team,"
Balcomb said. "They're an
experienced team. They
have size and speed."
But the Warriors are
strong on the offensive
and defensive lines, Felker


said, and possess speed
on both sides of the ball.
The team scored 30 or
more points in eight
games. Running back
Jeremiah Harvey leads
a potent ground attack,
averaging 10 carries a
game, Felker said, and
quarterback Branson
Drakeford is poised under
pressure.
The defense allowed

backs and receivers and
the 0-line is blocking
good, so we can make
plays like that."
McClary's quickness
also has the ability to turn
a busted play into a big
game that's some of the


improvisation that makes
him dangerous.
'A lot of (improvisation)
is you either have it or
you don't," Ingman said.
"The good thing is in our
offense, we run it so much
that when the pocket


breaks down, he's used
to running the football.
It just turns into another
running play for him."
As with McClary, the
speedy Tyler has created
his own brand at Port
Charlotte, starting with


the fact that he's mainly
been used at cornerback.
He's been used as a runner
in spots, most notably
the Pirates' 33-28 victory
over Charlotte, when he
rushed for 178 yards and a
touchdown in a breakout


in eight games and had
two shutouts. Outside
linebacker Kenny Scribner
"does a good job at
reading and tackling,"
Felker said, and corner-
back Tai'viahn Kelly leads
the team in interceptions,
including one for a
touchdown.
About 150 people,
mostly players' relatives,
are staying Friday night in
Miami, he said.


performance. He has
449 rushing yards and
five touchdowns on the
season.
But with a loaded
backfield that includes
Anthony Stephens, Martin
Luther, Keon Suber and
Grady Wells, his real value
has been at corner.
"I rotate in (at running
back) sometimes," Tyler
said. "But really, I just lay
back on defense. We're
short in cornerback,
so I had to play more
cornerback."
But Ingman is fine with
that.
"He's fearless," Ingman
said. "Turtle (Tyler)
doesn't see height, weight,
anything he sees
people. So he's not afraid
of anyone he goes up
against. He's as competi-
tive as anyone we've ever
coached."
Anything he does on
offense is something of
a bonus and something
Melbourne should be
wary of on Friday night.
"Turtle's extremely
elusive," Ingman said.
"He does a great job with
the ball in his hands. No
doubt. All our backs have
unique talents, whether
downhill power runners or
some have got the wiggle.
Turtle's got the wiggle."

inches of water must do some sort of damage to
the environment as the boat passes by. But how
much damage, and how long does it take for
natural processes to mitigate that damage? I don't
know the answer. I've been a passenger many
times on boats running through the fiats, and I've
felt the boat skipping bottom more than once.
If you run shallow water, I know you know what
that feels like. What I haven't done is reversed
course to take a look at what the effects might be
to the flat itself. Did we just trim the grass, or did
we leave a scar that will last for years? I wonder.
No-motor zones, also called pole-and-trolls
because you must use either a pushpole or an elec-
tric trolling motor to get around, are an effective
method of limiting the damage done by powerful
engines. They're also a pain in the backside if you
want to get somewhere fast. In Charlotte Harbor,
many boaters like to run inside the bar when
the wind is up. It's a more comfortable and drier
ride. If we were to enact no-motor zones here,
where would you want the boundaries to be? Is
protecting the habitat worth the inconvenience?
Maybe. We're still lacking a lot of information that
would be helpful in making such a decision.


Because of what I do for a living, a lot of people
want to talk to me about various fishing and
boating management schemes. Often, they get
themselves a little worked up as they get into
their spiel. That's not a huge surprise. People
are emotional about the things they care about.
Sometimes their ideas are sound; sometimes,
they're pretty far out there. But I always listen -
not just because it's important to them, but also
because sometimes right in the middle of a rant
might be a really good useful nugget.
Naturally, some ideas come up more than
others. One of the ones I hear on a fairly regular
basis is that maybe there should be no-motor
zones in parts of Charlotte Harbor, specifically the
shallow fiats on both the east and west walls. If
you spend any time in those areas, you know that
there are more than a few prop scars marring
the grass. Some of them, made by larger vessels,
are more like ditches than prop scars. You don't
have to spend very long out there to watch boats
traveling on plane through very shallow water,
and it's not at all uncommon to hear one suddenly
grind to a halt as it runs onto a sandbar.
Obviously, running a boat at speed in a few

A few of the pole-and-troll proponents I've
talked to play up the "it'll improve fishing" angle.
The immediate effect would be a more relaxed
atmosphere on the flats, one where fish could do
their thing with less harassment. The guys who
run along shorelines looking for fish also end up
chasing fish out of their chosen spots. And how
many times has your fishing been interrupted or
blown out by a boat zipping by much too close?
Their notion seems to have merit but again,
is it worth the inconvenience? I've heard guys
complain about those jerks who buzz shorelines
hunting redfish literally as they were doing
the same thing themselves. A pole-and-troll
might sound great when it keeps everyone else
from doing it, but when it also affects our own
behavior, suddenly things get real.
Here's what I really want to know: What do
you think? I want to know if there's enough
interest out there for this to even be a topic
of discussion. Do you care whether no-motor
zones are enacted in parts of Charlotte Harbor?
If it were to happen, would you want a voice
in how the rules are written? Let me know at

Nothing happens by itself


Nothing happens by itself. Well, you can
argue that point, but I think in order for
something to improve, you can't just sit back
and hope the matter takes care of itself.
The University of Florida recently held a
workshop in Punta Gorda about snook. The
point of the workshop was to discuss data
about snook and assess what was going
on with the local fishery. After all, before
September, the season had been closed since
the devastating freeze of 2010. Nobody at
the workshop expected to leave knowing a
"magical solution" was reached that would
ensure a healthy snook population for all
eternity. That's just not possible. But they
did leave knowing that there are people
out there who care about the future of our
Harbor. There were representatives from
Mote Marine, the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission and the University
of Florida. We spoke about the problems of
pollution and overfishing. We spoke about
the difference of fishing for snook in the
1960s compared to today. The main point
here is that we spoke.
This was the second workshop that UF
held this year. The first one was based on the
same principle communication. The goal
of these workshops is to get people talking.
There is a mix of different people that attend
these workshops, and that diversity is key.
From commercial fishermen to snowbirds, it's
beneficial in the long run to hear everybody's
voice. But again, there are no cure-all quick
solutions, and I must say that I was a little
disappointed when a group got up and left
during the middle of that first workshop. Why
they left, I don't know, but leaving doesn't
seem like a solution to anything.
There will be more workshops in 2014, and


you can be sure that WaterLine will include
those dates in our Bulletin Board. In fact,
when organizations contact us about semi-
nars or other outreach programs designed
to inform and get the public involved, we
gladly publicize their events. The Charlotte
Harbor Environmental Center, Friends of the
Charlotte Harbor Aquatic Preserves, Charlotte
Harbor National Estuary Program, Peace River
Audubon and the Charlotte Sierra Club are
just a few of the groups that send us infor-
mation about their upcoming events. Then
there are agencies like the FWC, West Coast
Inland Navigation District and the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection that


send us updates or information on upcoming
events. Whenever we receive information
about any upcoming events, we put them in
our Bulletin Board. We try to attend as many
of these events as we can, but sometimes
there just isn't enough time. You need to pick
your battles.
During the next few months you will see
the Bulletin Board grow substantially. There
will be plenty of events to choose from, and
topics to discuss. From manatees to no-motor
zones, gill nets to red tide, you can be sure
there will be plenty to keep you busy if you
want to this winter. But again, nothing
happens by itself. Pick your battles.


Florida Sea Grant is another program that
WaterLine Weekly supports. It is a universi-
ty-based program that supports research,
education and extension to conserve coastal
resources and enhance economic opportuni-
ties for the people of Florida. As many of you
know, Betty Staugler is the Sea Grant agent
in Charlotte County. She is also a columnist
for WaterLine Weekly. When she sends us
information about events, like the others
groups, we publish it. Betty sent us infor-
mation regarding a survey of Gulf of Mexico
issues. Because it was a bit lengthy, I couldn't
appropriately fit it into our Bulletin Board. So
here you go, Betty!
Every four years, the four Sea Grant
programs in the Gulf of Mexico develop a
plan that guides research investment by the
programs and tackles particular issues such
as coastal hazard planning and ecosystem
service valuation. The plan is based entirely
on the input of constituents around the
Gulf. It takes about 20 minutes. This way the
input of people in Gulf communities is taken
into consideration in regard to the priorities
for 2014-17. All responses are anonymous.
The results of this survey will be shared
with the Gulf of Mexico Research Initia-
tive, NOAA Restore Act Science Program,
National Academy of Science's Gulf of Mexico
Program, Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration
Council and other groups. The survey takes
less than 15 minutes to complete, and will
close on Dec. 13. So visit Svy.mk/lhVPiWL on
the Internet and take the survey. You will be
helping out.
Keep on reading WaterLine Weekly, and if
you hear of any upcoming events, seminars
or anything else of interest, let us know.
Nothing happens by itself.

Snook are active in Venice Inlet and the bays. Scope the shorelines in the afternoon
with whitebait if you can. Sheepshead around the jetties will eat small live shrimp
or live fiddlers. Flounder atCaspersen Beach have been pretty good on live shrimp
tail-hooked on jigheads. In the backcountry, redfish are feeding well in the after-
noon once theywarm up.


Whiting are swimming like mad along the beaches. Flounder and black drum can
be found off Manasota and Englewood beaches as well as Boca Grande. Believe it
or not, bonefish have been sporadically caught in the surf off Boca Grande using
shrimp on a jig there aren't a whole lot, but they are there. Backcountry redfish
are good, but there are a lot of smaller rat reds. Use some use select shrimp for the
bigger reds. Tarpon are still in the Pass and have been caught using Rapala X-Rap
14 artificial.


The reefs have been producing good sheepshead and grunts with
Spanish mackerel and a few kingfish hanging around near the
surface.


Mangrove snapper and red grouper are doing well about 30
miles offshore. Grunts are pretty active about 30 miles offshore.


U, AIVARM
Seatrout have been in good numbers as
well as good sizes over the grass adjacent
to deep channels and cuts. Search the
edges ofsandholes, prop scars and dropoffs
with a MirrOdine or live shrimp.


Target king mackerel between the
Bayronto and Boxcar reefs using diving

i Q~&* Page 8* November 21,2013


If you're a year-round resident, you have
to have noticed the additional traffic on U.S.
41 and 1-75. It's not a surprise it's just the
annual influx of snowbirds coming back to
their winter nests. Local businesses are also
seeing the effects of our seasonal popula-
tion's return. At the tackle shops, one of the
ways we know our northern part-timers
have arrived is the questions we get, which
tend to be a little more basic.
Personally, I think it's great. I'm always
happy to teach somebody who genuinely
wants to learn. And it's undeniable that
saltwater fishing along the Southwest
Florida coast is very different from targeting
stripers in the Northeast or smallmouth in
the Midwest. So for the next couple weeks,
we're going back to the basics. If you think
you know all this stuff, read it anyway. How
else will you be able to argue with me about
the parts I got wrong?
First things first: You can't fish without
a license probably. All of the following
applies to saltwater fishing only; if you need
info about freshwater licenses, just call
me. How much you're going to spend for a
license depends on your age and residency
status. An annual saltwater fishing license
is $17.50 for a resident and $47.50 for a
nonresident. Seems cheap to me Loui-
siana charges more than twice as much.
When the grandkids come down to fish with
you, they won't need licenses unless they're
16 or older.
Age has its privileges. If you're 65 or older
and have a Florida driver's license, you don't
even need a fishing license at all (but you do


need your driver's license on you). If you're
over 65 but aren't a Florida resident, you still
need a nonresident fishing license.
One thing you should know is that the law
on resident licenses has changed. There used
to be a six-month waiting period after you
moved your residency before you could get a
resident fishing license. Now, once you have
a valid Florida driver's license, you're in.
OK, now that you're properly licensed and
legal, let's take a look at your fishing tackle.
A lot of people have images of huge marlin
leap into their heads when they hear the
words "saltwater fishing,;' and they end up
with tackle that's much too heavy. Don't
make that mistake you'll have a lot more
fun if you use appropriate gear.
For the majority of our inshore fishing,
moderately light tackle is much preferred.
A spinning reel in a 3000 or 4000 size
matched to a 6- or 7-foot rod rated for
somewhere between 6- and 17-pound line
is about what you want. If you're used to
monofilament line, 10- or 15-pound line
is usually best, or go with 15- to 30-pound
braided line. None of this is specific to
saltwater fishing, although some reels do
hold up better in marine conditions. A chat
with your friendly local tackle shop staff
will help you find one that fits your budget
and won't let you down.
Reef fishing is a different animal, and
you'll need heavier tackle for that. A 3/0
to 6/0 size conventional reel spooled with
30- to 50-pound mono is about right. The
recent explosion of jigging rods has led
to rods that are much lighter and easier


to handle than the old fiberglass broom-
sticks, yet still have plenty of backbone for
hauling big grouper up.
Most of the fish you'll find on our reefs
are smaller snapper, grunts, porgies,
etc. and while you can catch them on
grouper gear, they're a blast on light tackle.
You should also be aware of special gear
rules when you're fishing for snapper and
grouper. You have to use non-stainless steel
circle hooks and have a dehooking device
with you. Technically, you also have to have
a venting tool and use it when needed, but
the state is probably ending that require-
ment later this month. These reef fish rules
apply even if you catch your snapper under
the mangrove trees, so stay sharp.
If you're used to Atlantic coast surf
fishing, with 9- to 15-foot rods and oversize
reels, you might be a little disappointed
to learn there's not much opportunity for
that kind of fishing here. Ultra-long casts
generally just land your bait past the fish.
Instead, we focus on targeting fish near
structure, which calls for shorter but more
precise casts. Sure, there's a learning curve,
but that's part of the fun.
That covers rods and reels, but there's also
the tackle that you tie to the end of your
line. Here again, a lot of people end up with
something heavier than they really need.
Contrary to popular belief, wire leader is not
automatically required with saltwater fish.
For most inshore fishing, 20- or 30-pound
monofilament is all you need. If you're
targeting mackerel or sharks, you might
want to use a bit of wire (a few inches for


mackerel, a couple feet for sharks). When
you attach your leader to your line, less
hardware is better, and use the smallest you
can get away with. For attaching a mono
leader, a knot is better than a swivel (I
suggest you learn the double uni knot).
Hooks are another tricky bit of tackle.
There's no such thing as a snook or redfish
hook. Just match your hook to your bait.
Generally, a No. 1 or 1/0 hook is good for use
with shrimp or small baitfish. If your bait is
smaller or larger, adjust accordingly. Look for
a style made of fairly thick wire. You don't
need super extra-hyperstrong hooks, but
light wire will bend too easily. Use a hook
with a shorter shank for live bait; with dead
or cut bait a little longer shank is fine.
All too often, I see anglers fishing with
weights that are much too heavy, especially
with live bait. You need just enough to get
the bait down and keep it where you want
it. Inshore, a small splitshot or two is usually
sufficient. If you anchor your bait with a
six-ounce chunk of lead, the chances you're
going to feel the bite are pretty slim.
I'm about out of space, so we'll have to
continue this next week. Until then, if you
have any questions about how our local
fishing is different, remember that the staff
at your local tackle shop is your best resource.
Support them, and they'll support you.

-7 *i1:[1H. 1:[,

Fall is in the air and the fish are biting
everywhere. The autumn months make fishing
difficult for me, not because the fishing is slow
(it's not) but because I find it hard to choose
one specific species offish to target on any
given day. We are so very fortunate here in
Southwest Florida that during the autumn
months, because just about every game fish
we have can be caught relatively easily.
For those of you who love to troll near shore
(one of my favorite things to do) you're in
luck: Kingfish, gag grouper, Spanish mackerel
and cobia are all out there for the taking. You
inshore guys are also in luck: Snook, trout,
redfish, cobia, pompano, jacks and mackerel
are all over the Harbor and willing to take
just about anything you have to offer them.
And just so you know, tripletail have already
started to take up residence under some of the
recently placed stone crab trap buoys just off
our beaches (yum, yum). With all these species
out there and not enough time in a day to
target them all, the question has to be"What
do I fish for today?"That's the question I ask
myself almost every day, and recently I have
been answering that question with wait for
it flounder.
'Why flounder?' you may ask. The answer to
that question is quite simple. First, there is an
abnormal abundance of them out there this
year. Second, they're relatively easy to find and
catch. Third, they taste great. Fourth, they are
my wife's favorite fish which is actually my
number-one reason for targeting them.
For most people, catching a flounder is
a pleasant surprise while targeting other
species. Think of all the times you were
beating the bushes for reds and snook and
ended up with a nice flatfish on your line, or
how many times you were targeting grouper
and snapper and ended up with a flounder on
the end of your hook. If you haven't caught
more flounder while targeting these other
species, you didn't work your fishing spots
hard enough. Flounder have a tendency to
congregate in fairly small areas. They love to
lie in sand in the potholes scattered across
your favorite grass flat, under your favorite
mangrove shoreline and around your favorite
nearshore reef. If you catch a flounder, you can


bet your bottom dollar that there will be quite
a few more in that same area. You need to
really give those potholes a good beating. It's
worth the extra effort not only do flounder
look really cool, as table fare they're almost
unmatched. Another reason to target them is
the fight. For such a goofy-looking creature,
they can really put a bend in your rod.
A flounder is not really a picky eater for
the most part. I have caught them on shrimp
and cutbaits like squid, sardines, mullet and
ladyfish. I have also taken them many times
on artificial lures like the 17MR by MirrOlure,
Johnson silver spoons and Rapala X-Raps. If
you are planning a trip to target just flatties,
let me give you a little tip. D.O.A makes a
soft plastic paddletail under the moniker
C.A.L. and it comes in many, many colors. I
have been throwing these lures attached to
quarter-ounce jigheads for as long as I can
remember and let me tell you, they catch
everything. If you are after flounder, you can't
go wrong with a pink C.A.L. on a red or white
jighead. I'm not sure why, but flounder really
love the pink tails. The white glow C.A.L.s
also work very well, but pink is the hot ticket
for flounder fishing inshore and offshore.
For those of you who don't like throwing
artificial a whole lot, load up your baitwell
full of finger-size pinfish and greenbacks.
Flounder will eat shrimp and cutbait, but what
their regular diet is other fish. Flounder are
aggressive predators of small fish, so if you are
looking to take a bunch home then feed them
baitfish. If you can get yourself a mess of mud
minnows, even better yet.
Stop floundering around with all those
other fish out there and take advantage of the
incredible flounder bite that going on right
now, because we don't know how long it's
going to last. Tight lines.

-


Around this time of year, it is common
to reflect on all that we are thankful for
- as individuals, as a community and
as a country. Here at Peace River Wildlife
Center, words cannot convey our gratitude
this year. Merely a year ago, we were not
entirely convinced that we would be able to
continue to serve the Charlotte County area
in the same capacity that we have for the
past 30-plus years. Today we find ourselves
experiencing a rebirth, thanks to the
community we feared no longer cared about
our mission. And while there are other
worthwhile causes out there and many
other organizations to which one can donate
time and money, PRWC has been amazed
and delighted to have the community rally
around us with such overwhelming support.
As the good will of the community
surrounds us, wonderful things keep
happening. We were able to rehab and
release an adult bald eagle that had gotten
shocked by a power line this year. We were
able to save the life of an infant leucistic
screech owl, giving him a permanent home
here at PRWC where we can keep him safe
from predators. And we were recently
contacted through our website by someone
in Louisiana who had found an injured
magnificent frigatebird this June. The bird
had been found washed up on the beach
with a broken wing, covered in sand and


so weak he couldn't lift his head. Unable
to locate a rehab facility in their area, the
Young family was able to keep the frigate-
bird they called Clap-Clap (because of the
sound made when he snapped his beak
together) alive by hand-feeding him fish. As
the weather started to get cooler, they were
concerned that the bird would not do well so
far north of his usual habitat.
The magnificent frigatebird's only North
American breeding ground is the Dry
Tortugas, in the southernmost reaches of
the Florida Keys. They can be found fairly far
north of that location during non-breeding
times, especially after a severe weather
event during which they will ride ahead of
the winds. They've been sighted as far north
as Alaska. This juvenile frigatebird would
not have fared well during the Louisiana
winter and is lucky to have been found by
people who were willing to go out of their
way to find a more suitable location for him.
The Youngs took him to LSU, where it was
determined that his broken wingtip would
permit him to fly. Dr. Javier Nevarez, a veteri-
narian at LSU, waded through the red tape to
transfer him to PRWC, even driving the bird
to the airport himself, providing a carrier, and
paying for the flight.
Upon his arrival at PRWC, the bird was
dubbed Lafitte after the famed pirate of the
Louisiana area, Jean Lafitte. The magnificent


frigatebird is often called a pirate because of
its tendency to harass other birds in midair
until they regurgitate their freshly caught
fish, which the frigatebird swoops down and
steals the before it lands back in the water. It
is also quite adept at snatching its own fish or
squid from the surface of the water. The frig-
atebird is not waterproofed, so even though
it has slightly webbed toes, it does not spend
time in or on the water. Its short legs make
it awkward on land as well. In the wild it
spends most of its time on the wing, able to
soar for hours with little wing movement. The
frigatebird is one of few bird species able to
ride out a hurricane in midflight.
Lafitte will change to his (her) adult
plumage slowly over the next year or so.
Normally a juvenile stays with its mother for
two years, while the father goes off, presum-
ably, to breed with another female, leading
to a unique arrangement the male
breeds every year; the female, every other.
Another strange feature of this species is that
it displays sexual dimorphism, or physical
differences between the male and female.
The female is slightly larger than the male,
and she has a white patch on her breast. The
male will appear entirely black until breeding
season, when a patch of bare skin under his
neck, the gular sac, turns bright red and is
inflated in a magnificent display to attract a
mate.


Stop by PRWC and check out this highly
unusual bird. Due to their distinctive lifestyle,
this species is rarely found in captivity. Lafitte
will be with us temporarily, offering you a
great chance to see a frigatebird up close.
In addition to his beauty, Lafitte has proven
to have quite a personality. He has already
moved from his own perch that we provided
for him to cozy up to the pelicans perching on
the tree over the pelican pond.
As the holidays approach, remember PRWC
in your family's plans. We will be open Thanks-
giving, Christmas and NewYear's Day from
11 a.m. to 4 p.m. And remember us in your
year-end giving also. Since we don't employ
any professional fundraisers, every dollar
donated to PRWC goes to help the animals
right here in your own backyard, not to some
telemarketing firm paid to make phone calls
that invariably interrupt your dinner.

As I stood in downtown Miami admiring
the gasping peacock bass I'd just caught, it
occurred to me that the fish and I had some-
thing common: Neither of us really belonged
in that urban setting. I've lived in Punta
Gorda for more than three decades more
than long enough to become accustomed to
the relatively slow-paced life enjoyed by the
residents of this beautiful and friendly small
town. Miami, the home of more than 2.5
million people, is internationally renowned
as a hub of multicultural activity and is one
of the world's top tourist destinations, but I
don't really belong there among the hustle
and bustle of a big city.
Peacock bass don't belong in Miami
either. The butterfly peacock bass is native
to South America and was introduced to
Florida waters as early as the 1960s to
provide recreational fishing opportunities.
Despite repeated attempts at introducing
them in other areas, they've managed to
thrive only in a small corner of Southeastern
Florida primarily in the Miami area. This
means that much of the fishing for these
brightly colored and hard-fighting fish is
done in citified surroundings, which are in
stark contrast to the jungles and rain forests
which surround much of their native water.
Every once in a while, someone claims to
have caught a peacock bass in Southwest
Florida, but I've never caught or even seen
one of the pretty fish in our region.
Our family was recently invited to attend
the wedding of my nephew Robert Crews and
his fiancee Erica Demers. The wedding was
a splendid affair held at an upscale hotel in
Coral Gables, which is in the heart of Florida's
peacock bass territory. The weekend schedule
culminated in the joining of the handsome
young couple and left me with half a day on a
Saturday morning with little to do while the
women were primping. So I went in search
of a peacock bass to add to my life fish list.
I drove to a canal that ran behind a huge
shopping mall. I didn't see any"No Fishing"
signs, so I parked and clambered through a
hedge that guarded the waterway where I
began fan casting as I walked the bank. I'd
been afraid that the area would be overrun
with weekend anglers, but those fears were
unfounded and as I walked a half mile of
canal and never saw another angler, or even
much sign that anyone ever fished that loca-
tion. Beer bottles, plastic bags and cigarette
butts were scattered all over, but there were
no lost wads of fishing line, no dangling lures
and no discarded bait containers. There were


plenty of dog-walkers and joggers, but no
other fishermen. I wasn't complaining.
I caught my first-ever peacock bass that
morning, and my second and my third. All
three fish were between a pound and a
pound and a half, and all fought hard on my
6-pound ultralight rig, in spite of the fact
that they didn't come close to matching the
state record fish of 9 pounds. Success came
on a road runner head fitted with a plastic
curl-tailed body, a rig that's similar to a
Beetle Spin. All the peacocks hit lures that
were being worked along the bottom and
within a few feet of the shoreline, though the
steep banks in that canal meant that the fish
actually struck 4 to 6 feet down.
I was excited that I'd been able to add
peacock bass to my lifetime species tally
while in Miami, but peacock bass were only
one of three new exotic species entries on my
list that day. I also landed my first spotted
tilapia, a fish which looks similar to the more
common blue tilapia that are found in every
pond and freshwater canal in Southwest
Florida. I also caught an odd-looking fish
called a zebra tilapia. I'd never seen (or even
heard of) a zebra tilapia, and neither had
any of my fishing buddies, so it took a photo
to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's Non-native Fish Lab in Boca
Raton to get an identification. The zebra
tilapia, which weighed approximately 2
pounds, was the largest and hardest fighting
fish I caught that day. Unlike the tilapia that
we see around these neck of the woods, the
protruding snout of the hornet tilapia was
equipped with such a serious set of teeth that
lipping it would have been a finger-slashing
blunder.
My Miami trip was a great success. I was
only honked at a few times while driving like
a lost tourist through downtown, and there
was no gunplay that I noticed. I caught some
very interesting fish in an unlikely location.
Best of all, I surprised everyone in my family
- most especially Mrs. Capt. Ralph by
making it back to the hotel in time to shower
and change clothes prior to attending the
wedding.
Let's go fishing!

A morning filled with fishing fun is bound to work up an appe-
tite. We were looking for a place to grab a bite before heading back
out for an afternoon filled with fishing fun (hey, who ever heard of
too much fishing fun?), so we needed someplace to park the boat
and eat. The Waterside Grill at Gasparilla Marina seemed like the
perfect choice.
One of the big positives with the Waterside Grill is they open
early and close late. Breakfast starts at 6:30 a.m., and dinner wraps
up at 11 p.m. You can stop in on your way to the water or on your
way home, or you can pause in the middle of your day like we did.
The patio is very inviting and offers a waterfront atmosphere. It
was a sunny day and we were warm, so we opted instead for the
air-conditioned indoor seating. The restaurant's decor is old-school
nautical, with the most interesting pieces being a couple of old
outboards hung from the ceiling. The menu is fairly extensive
and has lots of choices for landlubbers, if you're so inclined. We
ourselves prefer seafood whenever possible, and were pleased to
see some tempting options.
Samson selected the fried oyster platter, based on the menu's
promise of fresh oysters, and chose cole slaw and black beans and
rice to go with the shellfish. We've had fried oysters in other estab-
lishments that were disappointing. Oysters are tricky and easy to
overcook, so they make a good gauge of a restaurant's attention
to food quality. Also, they're delicious. Delilah was unable to resist
the redfish Reuben, and decided that a cup of crab chowder would
make a good companion.
We guzzled iced tea during the short wait for our meal.
Although we know better than to get dehydrated on the boat,
sometimes we get so busy casting we forget to drink anything. It's
a good thing the tea was good, because we drank lots.
Soon enough, the plates were on the table. Samson grabbed an
oyster right away and popped it in his mouth. Yep as adver-
tised, fresh. And as hoped, not at all overcooked. Delilah and a lot
of other raw oyster enthusiasts cry foul when an oyster is cooked
at all, but to Samson's palate, a medium-rare oyster has a sweeter
and more complex flavor. Waterside's batter recipe is light and
crispy, almost delicate, and the amount of added salt was just
right. The oysters came with tartar and cocktail sauce on the side.
Both sauces were good (the mild cocktail sauce would have been
great with shrimp), but both overpowered the oysters. When we
eat oysters, we want to taste oysters, not dipping sauce.
The cole slaw had chunks of pineapple in it a surprising but
not unwelcome addition. The fruit gave the slaw a sweet-and-
sour tang, making regular cole slaw seem boring by comparison.
The moist beans and rice were flavorful but not overly spicy. If
you want extra zip, blop a little hot sauce on there. The generous
helping was quite filling, almost too filling if you plan to get back
out on the water.
We were told Delilah's redfish was farm-raised in Louisiana.
Although there are lots of them in Charlotte Harbor, they're off-limits
to commercial fishermen. Redfish is a meaty fish with a mild flavor
and large flakes, very much like the perennial Florida favorite grouper.
Since it was lunchtime, Delilah opted for redfish in sandwich
form. The Waterside Grill's redfish Reuben comes with the usual
suspects: Sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and Thousand Island dressing,
all on grilled rye bread. But what makes this Reuben unusual is
the redfish. Moist and flaky, there was no question the fish was
fresh. Delilah was pleased, and that's always a good thing. And the
crab chowder was even better. Savory nuggets of crab meat were
accompanied with chopped potatoes and celery. It was great on its
own, and it was great will the crusts of grilled rye dipped into it. It
was a filling lunch, indeed.
After being so well-fed, we almost didn't go back out fishing.
Then we thought about all the rod-bending action we'd had
that morning, the beautiful sunny day, the white pelicans flying
overhead, the dolphins playing around the boat. Before we knew
it, we'd talked ourselves into heading right back out. Lunch at the
Waterside Grill was a wonderful part of a wonderful day par for
the course here in the paradise of Southwest Florida.

n.eu...lr;.ki.e.u
msa~mmm~wuumuu m~hummmm~.inaehEum


While I was born a Yankee country girl,
somewhere between my barefoot-in-
the-mud, bait-my-own-hook days of youth
and now, I got soft. I moved to Florida, and
now the multi-legged fauna that dwells
around my home makes me prone to
screaming fits. The last fish I caught when
I was about 8 was a 5-pound walleye, and
I cried when my uncle offered to have it
mounted.
Recently, I realized how much better fresh
fish tastes. Then I learned how much cheaper
it is to go out and catch your own, and how
rewarding it is to eat a meal you've caught,
cleaned and prepared. I was immediately -
pardon the pun hooked.
Not that I knew a thing."Fishing"to me
entailed several cases of beer, music, some
booze and a midnight party on the pier.
Somewhere in there I faintly remember one of
the guys bringing a pole, hooking something
dead and meaty on the end of it and heaving
it over the side. I can't believe we ever caught
anything but a buzz, but it happened once
or twice. A shark, a handful catfish and once,
during a drunken "American Pie" singalong
that had us all in tears, an overzealous cast
reeled in part of my buddy's eyelid.
But I digress. I'm here to pump you full of
ridiculous stories and self-esteem: Because
I'm sure if the most clueless, scatterbrained
human being can evolve into a passable
fisher(wo)man, you can, too.
I am, by current trade, a bartender. From
time to time, members of the opposite sex
will drink too much and hit on me. Not long
ago, I befriended a guy over the course of a
couple of weeks and he eventually asked me
out. Our first date was a fishing trip.
The initial reaction was that I had hit the
jackpot. Not only was he cute, but he had a
boat!
Fishing? I thought. Heck yes! A whole day
playing in the water, drinking and working on
my tan? I'm in!
In what now stands as the grandest of
miscalculations, I didn't get off that easy.
Shortly after launch, we dropped anchor in
what I now know to be the flats. There was
no beach and no sandbar, and to my utter
dismay, he handed me a pole.
What on earth did he think I was going to
do with that?
I smiled, batting my eyelashes as I searched
through my bag for the book I intended to


read. "I'm OK, I'll just watch you," I offered.
That didn't fly. He was actually going to make
me fish?
Seeing that I had no clue what to do but
seizing the opportunity, he took my confused
silence for permission, baited my hook and
then cast. I quickly found this particular
human was very into fishing, and all of his
jumping about and constant suggestions
made it impossible to read, so I gave in and
grabbed the pole. I got a hit, and that's when
I discovered my reel was on backward (I'm
left-handed), making it nearly impossible for
me to wipe that smirk off his face by hauling
in dinner on my (his) first cast.
He laughed. A lot. I was embarrassed,
dismayed and positive I'd never get another
call from my cute date, who I later discovered
used to fish commercially for a living. Go
figure.
Later in the day karma struck, and he got
a barb from a treble hook stuck in his palm.
After an unpleasant removal that required
pliers and a lot of whining, we discovered the
boat battery was dead. As we waited for Sea
Tow to arrive, I was finally able to stretch out,
relax and enjoy seeing him flustered. The tow
took a while, so I had time to open YouTube
and find the theme song from Gilligan's
Island. I blasted it just to make him wish he
had a place to hide.
In all, the day was a lot of fun, I just wished
I had been more knowledgeable about the
basics. What am I looking for? What do we use
for bait? How do I cast? Won't my pole break
if I hook a fish? How do I reel it in? All things
I'd have no problem asking my father, but I
was trying to make a big impression on this
MF (man friend), and there was no way I was
going to bow to his knowledge. Not on the
first date, anyway!
I fished with my dad growing up, but that
was on a lake and entailed hooking a worm
and waiting. This ocean stuff is a whole new
ballgame for me, but after that day, I was
hell-bent on learning enough to shame MF
with my skill.
That still hasn't happened, but I'm getting
better.
I'm a woman who likes to fish. Watch out!

TORAMN I I 1oGRE BRT


Don't rule out the






d d
i n 1 1


Lake Okeechobee is famous for big bass.
It attracts countless anglers from around
the world who come and fish the great
waters that hold some of the heaviest
bass that the United States has to offer.
But when the winds are up, and you're
forced to fish in the Rim Canal, you need
to be able to put the odds in your favor to
continue to catch bass.
Our season-ending tournament on
Lake Okeechobee is one tourney that I get
jacked up just thinking about. Running
the clear, shallow waters in search of big
bass is what it's all about for me. Every
time this tournament comes up, and
fishing Okeechobee out of Clewiston is an
absolute treat, I pay close attention to the
weather to determine where I'm going to
be able to fish for those upcoming days.
Days before the tournament, winds were
at a constant 11 to 18 miles per hour from
the east/northeast. Coming out of Clew-
iston, which is on the west wall of the
lake, pretty much means that your water
will be dirty the majority of the time.
We started fishing in one of the cuts
that leads out to the lake from the Rim
Canal. Sure enough, bass were biting, but
no giants. It was just another quality spot
to pick up a limit. I decided to cut through
the kicker trail and take my chances on
getting out into the lake. I ran over to


Kraemer Island and started working
through the big wide cuts there. I was
"bombing' 1.5-ounce weights through the
matted vegetation. I managed to catch a
few bass this way, but nothing that made
we want to fight the wind to drive back
there for the actual tournament days.
On Friday, the last day for me to prac-
tice, I decided to run north and fish in the
Rim Canal. I've always had some success
up north, so I thought I'd go ahead and
give it a shot, considering the weather
was going to leave me with minimum
options. We managed to locate a few
areas that had some decent fish, so I
decided to get off the water and wait for
tournament day.
Day one of our season-ending event
started just as I expected. The winds were
gusting over 20 miles per hour out of the
east. No way were the boys running out to
the lake going to produce any nice bags of
bass all the way out there. I cruised north
and sat down on the area that I wanted
to. The bite was slow and almost nonex-
istent. I located a few bass when a boat
came through our area. We were forced
to move over to let him pass through
an adjoining canal. He asked if we were
fishing the area. When I said yes, he
immediately dropped his Power-Pole and
started fishing. He was actually casting


back Into the area that I had just found -
the fish in.
I'm not one that's big on confrontation,
so I decided to pick up and move out of
the area and see what else I could find.
I started up the big motor and cruised a
bit, but decided to simply start fishing. If
I had to work the Rim Canal all the way
back to Clewiston, I was going to do it. I
started casting to the edge and located a
bunch of chunk rock on a drop that went
down to 20 feet of water. Lo and behold,
there were the bass. The water was clear,
the bass were abundant. By the end of
day, I'd culled the same fish 20 times
trying to upgrade my weight.
We were sitting in a very good posi-
tion for day two. We were within a few
pounds of first place. We went back to
that sweet spot. My goal was to start
there and hopefully run into a few bigger
fish. No luck. The water was dirty. I think
the engineers on the lake were draining
water, because it was flowing one way
and the wind on the surface was moving
it another way. This clouded up the water
pretty bad as the day went on. We didn't
catch anywhere near the quality of fish
that we had on day one, and to nobody's
surprise, I was disappointed that we
didn't have a better day.
We managed a fifth-place finish in the


tournament, and although that's gener-
ally not bad, I had set my sights a little
higher, hoping to crack a few bigger bass.
The one thing about the Rim Canal that
I found out and learned after that second
day was that it can be as tough to fish as
fishing out on the lake when the wind is
blowing. It's a different type of fishing,
due to the depth of the water in the
canal, and it does take some patience to
work through certain areas to determine
if there will be any bass around. But to
overlook fishing in the Rim Canal can be a
grave mistake. When the weather knocks
you off the lake, it's nice to have a few
spots that you can run to and catch some
decent bass.
Timing can be everything when it
comes to fishing. The seasons and the
weather can be the two biggest factors
that dictate what you're going to be able
to do on a lake the size of Okeechobee,
but make sure you don't limit yourself to
one technique. It's always nice to have a
back up plan to scratch out a quality limit
of bass.

"What a difference a day makes. Twenty-four little

hours, brings the sun and flowers."

- What a Difference a Day Makes by Rod Stewart


Thirteen members of the Venice Area Birding
Association descended on the Calusa Trail with
eager interest. Many of the group had never
been to Pine Island, so the entire birding field
trip was a new adventure. I'd been to this site
several weeks back investigating the trail specif-
ically for this field trip. I must say, I was happy
with the results of this trip. Birders already know
that one day can make a huge difference in bird
sightings. On days like this, I think of a song by
Rod Stewart called"What a Difference a Day
Makes'."
Three cars piled into the parking lot of the
beautiful Randall Research Center grounds
where the Calusa Trail is located. We started
our hike heading to Brown's Mound. Naturally,
none of the dozens of warblers we encountered
earlier were to be found on this trip. We did
hear and sight quite a few blue-gray gnat-
catchers. Off in the distance we heard an osprey
screeching. We sighted a mix of black vultures
with a few red-shouldered hawks catching the
wind currents. On this particular day, the wind
was almost bending the trees.
The water in Pine Island Sound was quite
choppy. As we stood on top of the mound, we
sighted no boats. Brown pelicans and laughing
gulls were fighting the wind as they were trying
to catch their breakfast out on the water. I'd
suspect there were small craft warnings for this
very windy day. Deb Johnson, the eagle eye
in the group, spotted a yellow-crowned night
heron sitting on a piling at the bottom of the
rolling hill. Earlier, she also spotted an American
kestrel. We had several butterfly addicts in our
group, and they were distracted from birding by
the dozens and dozens of beautiful butterflies
scattered everywhere.
We continued our hike and our group was
pleasantly surprised at the beautiful grounds
and the many old trees adorning this site -
once part of an ancient Calusa Village. One of
the most impressive trees was an enormous
rubber tree. It stood majestic and beautiful in
the mowed field.
The group hiked ahead of me as I stopped and
observed a small flock of palm warblers as they
jumped out of the brush, pecking at something
in the dirt on the trail. A cat bird was meowing
and rustling around in the brush it really did
sound like a cat.
I caught up with the group and was quite
surprised to see them all munching on ripe star
fruit. They were all under a star fruit tree, which
was one of the largest ones I've ever seen. It
was loaded with ripe fruit, much to our delight.
After our mid-morning snack, we continued
on our hike. We stopped at the boardwalk over
the wetland. This trail led to the burial mound.


We didn't dare go on the mound, as it is sacred
ground. We continued and sighted several great
egrets as they flew over our head.
We approached the canals and heard house
wrens chattering in the scrub. Wading through
the reeds, several of us got some good looks
at the cute little wrens. Off in the distance in
the dense foilage of a tree, we spotted the
unmistakable and magnificent silhouette of the
pileated woodpecker. We had already seen the
red-bellied woodpecker earlier. If your a wood-
pecker fan, this is your place. Next, we scoped
out the largest pond at the site and discovered a
camouflaged green heron fishing on the bank.
Darting its bill quickly into the water, it snagged
a small fish.
By this time, we were getting a bit hungry,
despite our snack of star fruit. Half the group
had a picnic at the Randall Research Center,
and the other half opted for lunch at the Tarpon
Lodge Inn, located directly across the road. We
all had a delicious lunch at the inn.
After lunch, we drove to the end of Bokeelia
and birded along the water and back bay. We
sighted royal terns and a Sandwich tern. Of
course we saw many more brown pelicans. We
also sighted some great blue herons. Three were
standing in a nearby tree, just watching the
cars go by. Several hundred laughing gulls were
huddled on one of the docks, probably making
a barrier against the wind. Several American
crows and common grackles stood on top of one
of the fishing boats, and large flock of double
crested cormorants flew across the darkening
sky. What a difference a day makes, indeed.
We left Bokeelia and drove to the Charlotte
Harbor Trail on Little Pine Island. Large dark
clouds were gathering overhead and the sky
looked quite threatening. We started down the
trail and noticed lightning in the distance. A
red-bellied woodpecker was digging into a dead
tree, eating insects, when Deb, our eagle eye,
spotted an immature eagle flying quickly over-
head and disappearing over the wetlands. We
decided getting caught in a rain storm was not
on our agenda, and we opted for ice cream on
Matlacha Island instead. Our stop for ice cream
gave us the extra energy for the long drive back
to the Englewood/Venice area. We had a great
fun day! Birding, laughing and eating. Maybe
Rod Stewart should tag along with us next time
and jot down a few new lyrics!

While most of us are blessed to be safe
and comfortable, many others aren't. Be
thankful and share when we can; enjoy
family time for Thanksgiving. This could
be a great time to take kids fishing, it's
much better for them to discover our
great outdoors than end up hooked on
computer games. Things aren't perfect
and we do have challenges we must deal
with, but at least our area offers us a
paradise to work through them in.
I've been off for the past few weeks
exploring other aspects of life. Most of
my waking hours have been devoted to
fishing, so I went hunting for change. One
reason was to improve my fishing skills.
I've been able to fish for a living for more
than 40 years, but I know there is still a lot
more to learn. Finding and stalking fish
can be refined by observing other animals,
and it's easier for me to study their habits
because they aren't underwater.
Animals require a safe resting place,
food and the opportunity to reproduce
themselves. It's interesting to see how
similar deer and fish really are. When they
are pressured, both find places to hide.
Many fish just move into deeper waters
where we can't see them. When you
want to outsmart fish, be sure you don't
over-think things they are fish, after
all, and not capable of reasoning. They
are happy and eating or moving around.
Fish sit occasionally, waiting on tide flow
or holding in moderate temperatures
for comfort (remember, they're cold-
blooded). Fish group up to migrate and
reproduce, both very basic functions. If
you watch birds or deer, you'll see them
work similar patterns to and from food,
water and roosting areas. I've been


UJLIIII Wil I II S ,I!I d I!I,
observing the geese up here, and they
come and go following the same ridges
between corn fields and water. Fish do
the same; they're just harder to follow
underwater. The more aware we are, the
more action we discover. Yet the more
animals are pressured, the more they
change habits to avoid us.
I need to keep you aware of an issue
that has been in the news lately the
netting restrictions. My objective is to
educate you to help you understand there
is more than one point of view here, and I
encourage you to look closer at this sensi-
tive issue. It's not as cut and clear as some
want to convey. Net fishing is not evil or
destructive. In proper hands, a net is an
efficient tool to harvest fish for food and
sale. Large nets in the wrong hands were
problems in the past and would be today.
It's not the nets it's certain individuals.
They were and are the netting problem.
So far, no one has attempted to recom-
mend gear restrictions based on facts
instead of emotional reaction. Laws are
easier to make than enforce, especially
when they're made by folks who have no
knowledge of what they are attempting
to regulate. The constitutional amend-
ment lacks the flexibility to be the tool
to attempt this management. It's a big
mess that has hurt the fishermen who
harvested fish legally to feed their and
many other families.
I can't fully address the amendment
issue here, but I can tell you that the
majority of the "facts" that sold Florida's
public on the need for the net ban were
simply calculated propaganda designed
to push Florida's commercial fishermen
into extinction. Most were out-and-out
lies, and it was not done to protect
mullet. Mullet did not need more protec-
tion; the stocks were just fine. This was
effectively sold for selfish gain. Please
talk to some of our local fishermen if you
want to understand their side. The few
left are mostly retired but they can help
you understand much more about our

heritage. Just learn about both views
before you decide what is right.
Maybe we could consider some compro-
mises that would allow the managed
harvest of foodfish like mullet, mackerel
and sheepshead, plus allow fishermen
to work our waters and make a decent
living. Right now it's such a mess that
we can expect to waste more money and
time on useless lawsuits. Respect needs to
be shown for all valid points, and objec-
tive reason needs to be our goal in order
to protect both fish and fishermen.
You might wonder why I care so much
about this. Well, it bothers me that we're
losing our Florida heritage. Commercial
fishing is a big part of that. There are very
few local fish houses anymore, mostly
because it's impossible for them to get a
steady adequate supply of locally caught
fish. In the old days, we didn't need to
import fish from Thailand. We ate better
and healthier fish for less money. If there's
a responsible way to bring that back, I
want to see it done.
As chillier weather moves in, redfish
are frequently our target species. They
are much more challenging when our
waters cool down and clear up. Under
those conditions, reds are as shy as the
famously elusive bonefish of the Florida
Keys. The big secret is to stalk and slow
down. If you get a slot fish, try baking
it with cornbread stuffing. Scale it and
remove the entrails, then fill the body
cavity and bake. You can add veggies,
tomato paste or whatever you desire. This
could make a fine feast for Thanksgiving.
Remember it's easy to make a mess (and
even easier to make a big mess), but
someone will always have to clean it up.
Thank you for your understanding.

Grande Tours to



close its doors


By Steve Reilly
Staff Writer

PLACIDA At a time when few locals had
even heard of kayaks, Marian Schneider took
a chance on what would become one of the
area's prime ecotourism attractions.
"1 brought the first 12 kayaks into this
county, and people didn't know what they
were,;' Schneider said. "Everything that Grande
Tours did, we were the first dog off the porch.":'
Schneider first opened Grande Tours in the
Fishery in 1988 before building and moving her
business to its present location at the junction
of Placida and Gasparilla roads, across from the
Boca Grande Causeway.
But the time has come to say goodbye.
Schneider, 70, said she will close Grande Tours
on Dec. 1.
"It is just time,just time, that's all I can say,";'
said Schneider, who will keep the property as
her private residence. "I had a spirit to guide
me to start it, and I think I am guided to stop
it, to end it, so it's just time to do it. I didn't
want to sell Grande Tours as a business because
it is my legacy. It's my name.":'
Schneider grew up on Boca Grande when the
island community was more populated with
commercial mullet fishermen, fishing guides
and dock workers than millionaires and billion-
aires. Her passion as a child was the marine
and other wildlife she observed.
"1 remembered watching the big ships
coming into the Port of Boca Grande to load up
with phosphate and head out to various parts
of the world'"she said, recalling how she would
imagine what life was like for the captains.
Schneider attended the University of Miami,


where she graduated with a bachelor's degree
in medical technology and "cyto-technology,"
the study of cancer cells.
"After 16 years working in hospitals a
career that took me as far as Africa (where she
volunteered for two years in a bush hospital)
- I ended my career in a hospital in Central
Florida" she said.
While she worked in Central Florida,
Schneider would return to Placida and
Gasparilla Island whenever she could, often
bringing friends with her so they could discover
the area.
One weekend on the beach, Schneider said,
"1 listened and I heard something tell me,
'Follow that dream and become the creative
self that you knew you were meant to be all
along."
She decided to redirect her energies into
building a business that became Grande Tours.
"Risky? Why, yes, it was, but I took risks
before;' Schneider said. "Why not do what I had
already been doing all my adult life? Riding
friends in my boat around Boca Grande and
telling them what it was like as a child?"
Schneider admits the success of Grande
Tours, and its vision to promote marine ecology
and environmental awareness, has not been a
solo effort. She said she's had a lot of support
from friends, other individuals and the local
media.
Bobbi Rodgers the Charlotte Harbor
Environmental Center manager at Cedar Point
Environmental Park said, "(Schneider) is
such an icon in this community. She's been
doing marine education before (CHEC) has
been at Cedar Point.":'

Let's take a look at the range
safety officer and his job. Some LU L
of the things I'm going to tell
you you're going to find hard to
believe, but having been there IL L
can assure you they're true. First
of all, the primary duty of the
range officer is to keep the range
safe. As you can well imagine, this
can be a really dangerous job. I n
lost count of how many times I ||
had loaded guns pointed in my )
face while on duty at the range.
We used to have a standing joke
with the FWC law enforcement guys telling them
that as cops, they only got guns pointed at them
once in a great while; we, on the other hand, had
it happen almost every day.
So with all this danger and responsibility they
must get paid pretty well, right? The unfortunate
truth is they work for minimum wage and have
no benefits whatsoever. Yep no insurance, no
paid vacations, no nothing they aren't even
considered full-time employees of the state.
When I was there, I bought my own duty boots
and pants. If they occasionally gave us a hat or
a few T-shirts, they made us feel like they were
doing us a big favor. Recently I noticed one of the
RSOs didn't have a state shirt on and I teasingly
told him it was out of uniform. He said he was
tired of asking and being promised that some
would be along soon.
Folks, this is just wrong. The state can and
should be doing a lot better job of taking care of
these hard-working young men. The people in
charge at state level have been promising better
wages for these guys since long before I worked
there, but it never seems to happen. This is the
main reason that you never see an RSO stay there
for very long. When the state set this up long ago,
they made a serious goof, and no one has ever
had the courage or sense to stand up and correct
it. I know money is tight, but that range takes in
money, and the state keeps all the money from
the used brass that's recycled. Surely they can

afford to pay these guys a fair wage. We used to
be allowed to keep a small portion of the brass
money and divided up equally. That helped a
little, but now they've stopped that policy and
the powers that be keep it all. On a monthly
basis, that's a substantial amount of money. I'd
really like to see it accounted for, and not just by
them saying that goes to help the hunter safety
program. I really feel that the state is shirking its
responsibility here and treating these guys poorly,
and this needs to be corrected. Possibly some calls
and emails to FWC hunter safety program might
help the situation out (863-648-3200 or John.
weatherholt@fwc.state.fl.us). These fellows are
doing a hard, dangerous job and they deserve a
little better.
Let me tell you some of the things I have
witnessed on my trips to the range. If you are a
regular patron, I'm sure you have been seeing
these things yourself. One of the main problems
at a public shooting range is that, unlike at a gun
club or private range, you get a lot of folks who
are new to the shooting sports or have never been
properly instructed in gun safety. It's hard for the
RSOs to tell who these folks are just by looking
at them. If you want to learn golf or tennis or
fly fishing, you would no doubt hire someone to
train you in at least the basic skills of the sport. If
you don't get some instruction, you probably are
going to look silly when you try to
accomplish any of these things. I *10

don't know why it should be any different with
guns, but many people seem to think they just
naturally know how to handle one. How hard
can it be just load the thing up, point it and pull
the trigger? Obviously, not everyone is like this or
I wouldn't have any work, but more than a few
people feel this way.
How do I know? It's a result of what I'm seeing
at the range. This all crossed my mind the other
day as I was watching shooters at the pistol range
while I waited for a position to open up. There was
a pretty good assortment of people young
and old, men and women. I saw very little muzzle
discipline and guns were being pointed in all
directions not necessarily at other people,
but certainly not strictly at the targets. Out of
the shooters I was watching, only two kept their
fingers off the trigger and out of the trigger well
when they were not on the target and firing
the gun. One fellow shooting a snubnose .357
revolver not only kept his finger on the trigger,
each time he cocked the hammer( with his finger
still on the trigger) he would tilt the muzzle up
to the point where it looked like he was going to
blowthe smoke from the barrel. If the gun had
discharged, he would have shot the visor off his
ball cap or worse. Another lady turned around in
the firing position to ask her husband a question.
Wanna guess where the gun was pointed? Down
at the far end, a guy was looking for bandages
and tape to patch up his left knuckle after his slide
came back and removed the top of it because he
didn't know how to hold the gun properly.
All these things happened in the span of about
10 minutes. And where was the RSO? He was at
the rifle range, trying to keep things safe there.
These are all very basic safety rule violations
- stuff that should never happen after your first
day of handling firearms but I continue to see
them all the time. If you make a mistake with
a golf club or tennis racket, nobody gets killed.
When you're dealing with guns, it's an entirely
different situation. They are totally unforgiving.
If you've never been taught the basic safety rules,
or if you been away from the shooting sports for
a long time, it would be a good idea to get some

instruction or a refresher course. Don't be embar-
rassed or feel ill at ease you're not alone. It's
no big deal to sit down with someone and get
some good instruction, and it may save your life
or someone else's. A lot of shooters get embar-
rassed or upset when an RSO or a fellow shooter
tries to correct them regarding a safety problem.
What you should do if you're aware of what you
did wrong is say,"Thanks a lot for reminding me
- I'll do better."
We all have our pride and sometimes it's hard
to swallow, especially if the person doing the
correcting hasn't been properly trained to deal
with people without hurting their feelings. I
have had a few complaints on this particular
subject about the range officers coming down
hard on what the shooter perceived as a minor
violation. This of course can be true, but one
thing is certain I'd rather hurt somebody's
feelings temporarily than witness a shooting
accident that could have been prevented. If
after you been corrected you feel like you were
wrongly accused or the RSO overreacted, ask
him when he gets a little break could you have
a word with him in private. Before being too
critical of these fellows, what you need to do is
follow them around on a Saturday afternoon
for an hour you'll see why their patience
sometimes runs a little thin.
Safety is everyone's responsibility. If you're
there without an RSO and you see a violation,
don't hesitate to correct it. Be polite and try to
be helpful and not scare or upset the person. If
you use this technique, similar to what I do when
instructing, you might make a friend as well as
save somebody from a bad accident. On the other
hand, if the person doesn't take it well, don't get
in an argument or fight. Simply put your weapon
down, go find an RSO and let him handle it. It's
what he does.
Safe shooting.

Florida ditches



public python hunt


Associated Press

MIAMI A public hunt for Burmese pythons
in Florida's Everglades won't be repeated next
year, a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission spokeswoman said.
Instead, the state is beefing up established
programs that train licensed hunters and people
who regularly work in areas known to contain
pythons to kill or report exotic snakes.
"Certainly our work is not done with pythons.'
said wildlife commission spokeswoman Carli
Segelson.
The state-sponsored Python Challenge
attracted roughly 1,600 hunters in January and
February and made headlines worldwide. It
netted 68 of the invasive snakes, the longest
measuring more than 14 feet, but officials
said the number of pythons caught wasn't as
important as the data collected during the hunt.
University of Florida researchers still are analyzing
that data.
Segelson said the hunt met the commis-
sion's primary goal of raising awareness about
Florida's problem with pythons and invasive
species, and there will not be another python
hunt next year.
It's unknown how many pythons live in Florida's
Everglades. Researchers say the large snakes are
among the invasive species that are eating native
wildlife at an alarming rate.


State and federal wildlife officials are exploring
other ways to manage the python population,
including radio tracking devices, snake-sniffing
dogs and specially designed traps patented by the
U.S. Department of Agriculture.
During the Python Challenge, experienced
hunters had more success than the hundreds of
amateurs who signed up, so the state is focusing
on honing their expertise to harvest pythons in
the wild, Segelson said.
The state wildlife commission already allows
people with special permits to remove pythons
and other non-native snakes from designated
wildlife management areas. A partnership with
The Nature Conservancy and Everglades National
Park will continue to train people who regularly
work in areas known to contain pythons such
as law enforcement officers, utility workers
and students doing research to kill or report
non-native snakes.
The state also will reach out to licensed hunters
to train and encourage them to harvest pythons
while they're out in search of other animals
during open hunting seasons on designated
lands, Segelson said.
Florida prohibits possession or sale of the
pythons for use as pets, and federal law bans the
importation and interstate sale of the species.
The wildlife commission urges people to report
sightings of pythons and other exotic species to
888-IVE-GOT-1 or lveGotl.org.

for Magnuson



reauthorization


Provided by CCA Florida

The latest hearing on the reauthorization
of the Magnuson Stevens Fishery Conserva-
tion and Management Act took an encour-
aging turn last week as it became clear
that something must be done to address
shortcomings in the law as it relates to the
management of recreational fisheries.
"1 think the biggest take away from the
testimony we will hear today is that Magnu-
son-Stevens, as currently drafted, simply
does not work for the recreational fishing
community," said Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL).
"Faced with concerns over allocation and
uncertain seasons in some cases in the
South Atlantic, no season at all our recre-
ational fishermen have lost any semblance
of faith in the federal management system."
MSA is the overarching law managing the
nation's fisheries and was last reauthorized
in 2006 with some of the most stringent
fisheries management components ever
seen. The law far outstripped the abilities
of federal managers to implement it in any
manner that made sense and the result
has been a jolting series of shocks on all
coasts as fishery after fishery was severely
curtailed or closed in misguided attempts at
management.
"Sen. Rubio is exactly right and we are
grateful that he has such a clear under-
standing of the issues facing recreational
anglers;' said Patrick Murray, president of
Coastal Conservation Association. "After the
last reauthorization, it became glaringly
apparent that you cannot try to manage
recreational fisheries with tools designed
to manage industrial fishing. Anglers are
fortunate to have Sen. Rubio making these
points that are so important to us as the
pace of reauthorization picks up."
Among the issues CCA has identified that
must be addressed in the next reauthoriza-
tion:
Hard quotas and annual catch limits
based on infrequent stock assessments are

not the tools to manage robust recreational
fisheries.
Rebuilding targets and timelines should
be based on biological criteria that is tied to
the biology of the species rather than tied to
an arbitrary time frame.
Allocations between the recreational
and commercial sectors remain a critical
component of fisheries management that
is virtually ignored by current federal
managers.
State-based fishery management has
proven to be far more effective than federal
fisheries management in many fisheries and
it would be highly productive to develop
procedures for inter-jurisdictional coastal
state management of marine species where
appropriate and beneficial.
"It is clear that the issues of the recre-
ational community cannot be ignored in the
next iteration of Magnuson-Stevens" said
Sen. Rubio."l am committed to reforming
the law so that it works for every fisherman
in Florida and across the United States the
commercial fishermen, the recreational fish-
ermen, and the charter fishermen all alike.":'

TEXT MESSAGE SAVES WHALE SHARK


Men in Indonesia's Karimunjawa National Park were
fishing for anchovies and small baitfish on Oct. 8,
but they caught more than they bargained for when
they discovered a juvenile whale shark tangled in
their net, reports the World Conservation Society in
a statement released this week. Fortunately for the
13-foot whale shark, there was a system in place to
alert authorities. A Short Message Service (SMS) set
up by the WCS and the national park allows people
to report fishing violations and marine animal
strandings to park authorities instantaneously. The
fishers, not wanting to get in trouble for accidentally
catching the shark and unsure about how to release
it properly, used the service to text news of their
catch to the authorities. Staff members from
Karimunjawa National Park and the WCS quickly
responded and helped release the young giant back
into the ocean. Whale sharks have not been common
in this region over the past decade, but the presence
of the young whale shark in the net may be a sign of
the ecological recovery of Karimunjawa waters.

REPORT: CHINESE FISHING PROBLEMATIC
Last month, two Chinese fishing boats were caught
operating illegally in South Korean waters. Such
incidents have become a troubling trend for China's
fishing fleet, according to a report by the Woodrow
Wilson International Center for Scholars. Over the last
decade, there have been more than 4,600 cases of
Chinese fishing boats being caught illegally in South
Korea's waters alone, according to the South Korean
government. The report says these marine trans-
gressions have not been limited to neighbors. China
created its distant water fishing fleet in 1985, largely


Boatinglndustry.com In what will be viewed as a
significant yet temporary victory for the agricultural,
petroleum, marine and powersports industries, the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced that
it would cut the amount of ethanol that is federally
required to be blended in American gasoline and diesel
as required by the Energy Independence and Security
Act of 2007. Many industry and interest groups,
including powersports and marine manufacturers,
have spent significant effort vehemently opposing the
standards while concurrently arguing the high-ethanol
fuels will damage small engines, voiding warranties
and confusing consumers along the way. In a media
conference call ahead of the EPA's standard release,
John McKnight, vice president of Government Relations
with the National Marine Manufacturers Association,
commended the EPA for its temporary action, while
reiterating that the "unattainable mandate" still
requires permanent legislative action.

PUNTA GORDA TACKLE SHOP FOLDS
After a run of, like, a whole month, the bait and tackle
shop at Laishley Marina in Punta Gorda has closed its


operation. According to marina staff, the tackle shop's
proprietors and merchandise are simply gone, having
vanished to parts unknown. If anyone thinks they
would like to open a tackle shop, they are encouraged
to look to this example and make other plans.

OLDEST ANIMAL EVER FOUND KILLED
Geek.com Life in the animal kingdom can be
nasty, brutish, and short. Well, unless you happen to
be an ocean quahog, a species of edible clam native
to the North Atlantic Ocean. These mollusks can live
to be centuries old, and scientists have recently iden-
tified one of these creatures as the oldest animal ever
discovered. The only problem, they only figured that
out after killing it. The clam was dredged from the
ocean floor by researchers in 2006, and as is common
practice, was put in deep freeze to be examined later.
Because ocean quahogs live for so long, scientists can
learn about the climate of the past by studying these
organisms. Each season a quahog lives, it adds one
layer to its shell. The number of layers can be counted
like the rings in a tree. Initial examinations of this
particular clam found that it was 400 years old, so it
was named Ming after the Chinese dynasty in power
when it was born. However, a more recent examina-
tion has shown Ming to be much older 507 years
old, to be exact. The problem was that Ming was so
old that some layers of shell had compressed to the
point they were not visible in the earlier analysis.
Researchers are now confident they have the right
number. That means Ming was spawned in 1499.
If it's any consolation, there are probably still older
clams out there beneath the waves.

ACID OCEANS BAD FOR SHELLFISH FANS
Ocean scientists fear that climate change is dramat-
ically shifting the chemical balance of the ocean in
ways that will kill fish, mollusks and coral, harming
540 million people who depend on fisheries for their
livelihoods and anyone who likes a cheap oyster.
Oceanographers gathered for a summit in Monterey,
Calif., last month, producing a new report warning
policymakers of the need to act. The world's oceans
are basically a giant carbon sink, absorbing about a
quarter of carbon dioxide emissions. Since the indus-
trial revolution, the ocean has become increasingly
acidic due to increased carbon emissions-and at a
faster pace than ever before-but that saturation


(-


is making the ocean less effective at taking carbon
out of the air. By 2100, they expect the ocean will
be 170 percent more acidic than it was before the
industrial revolution. That change, scientists expect,
will increase the speed of climate change going
forward. In the meantime, it will harm ocean life,
particularly organisms that rely on hard shells or
exoskeletons like coral, mollusks, and crabs. The
scientists are confident that the impact will lead to
significant economic losses within the century, but
the magnitude is less clear. One estimate of the cost
to mollusk fisheries alone is $130 billion.

LEAVE'EM LAUGHING
Bob was leaving the Placida pier with two buckets of
sheepshead when he was stopped by an FWC officer,
who asked Bob for his fishing license. Bob replied,
"Don't have one and don't need one. These are my
pet fish.""Pet fish?" the officer replied."Yes, sir," Bob
said earnestly. "Every night I bring these fish down to
the pier and let them swim around for a while. Then I
whistle, they jump back into their buckets, and I take
'em home.""That's a bunch of hooey!"said the officer.
"Fish can't do that!" Bob looked the officer in the eye
and said,"lt really works. Here, I'll show you.""OK,"said
the officer."I've GOT to see this!" Bob leaned over the
side, poured the fish into the water and sat down on
the pier. After a couple minutes, the officer turned to
Bob and said,"Well?""Well, what?"asked Bob. "When
are you going to call them back?"the officer prompted.
"Call who back?" Bob asked."The FISH!" said the
exasperated officer. Bob smiled and asked,"What fish?"

DEAR DR. ROACH: I
am 88 years old and in
good health except for a
small stroke I had a year
ago with no lingering
deficiencies. I have had
an enlarged prostate for
most of my adult life, but a
biopsy showed no cancer.
I have had problems with
urgency. I tried a medica-
tion, doxazosin, with poor
results, if any. My last visit,
they recommended noth-
ing more than medication.
Is removing the prostate
not advisable because
of my age? What's the
reason they don't remove it
completely? C.WS.
ANSWER: Symptoms
of an enlarged prostate
in men without cancer
are common, and the
condition is called benign
prostatic hypertrophy. BPH
can be treated with either
medication or surgery. For
most men, medication
works well. Saw palmetto
is used by many men,
but well-done trials have
shown it to be no better
than placebo. Medications
like doxazosin, including
tamsulosin (Flomax), often
are the first ones tried and
usually work pretty well,
but finasteride (Proscar)
and dutasteride (Avodart)
are effective as well. A
combination is probably
most effective of all.
However, even that doesn't
work for some men.
The most common
prostate surgery nowadays
is a TURP (transurethral
resection of the prostate).
This is far less invasive
and has fewer risks than
the old open method, and
generally has good results.
However, as with any
surgery, there is never a
guarantee of success, and
I have seen several men
get worse after TURP even
though most get better.
Age in and of itself does
not necessarily preclude
surgery. However, a
history of stroke does
make surgery a bit more
risky. I don't recommend
surgery lightly, and since
you haven't reported giving
finasteride or dutasteride
a chance, either alone or
in combination, I would
recommend a good trial of
those before contemplat-
ing surgery.
DEAR DR. ROACH:
Unbeknownst to us, our
son had an accident -
while walking, a car hit
him and knocked him
unconscious. He does
not have insurance. He
was checked out, and
the attending physician
said there didn't appear
to be any harm done, but
that in following days,
symptoms could appear.


Dr. Roach

Months later, he is experi-
encing dizziness, nausea
and tiredness. Will these
symptoms go away, or will
he continue to have them?
-A.A.
ANSWER: A concussion
is a change in mental sta-
tus that occurs after a head
injury. The most common
symptoms in concussion
are confusion and memory
loss. There does not need
to be loss of consciousness
at the time of the event to
develop a concussion, and
concussions should be
promptly evaluated.
It sounds as though your
son has postconcussion
syndrome. Thirty percent
to 80 percent of people
with concussion will
have some symptoms of
postconcussion syndrome.
These include headache,
dizziness, difficulty
concentrating and some-
times psychiatric changes.
Fortunately, these usually
get better within a few
weeks or a few months.
Treatment of the symp-
toms needs to be highly
individualized. Not having
insurance makes that very
difficult. Hopefully, he will
be able to get insurance
soon and see a neurologist,
the type of doctor skilled in
treating this condition.
DEAR DR. ROACH:
Americans are infatuated
with grilling, barbecuing
and charring meat all
forms of high-temperature
cooking. Isn't charred
food carcinogenic, leading
to stomach and colon
cancers? S.B.
ANSWER: Yes, charred
meat is carcinogenic, at
least according to the
preponderance of the
data. In fact, increased red
meat of any kind probably
increases overall cancer
risk, but high-temperature
cooking creates several
kinds of toxic chemicals
and increases colon cancer
risk specifically. There is
some evidence that leaner
cuts of red meat aren't as
dangerous, and also that
marinating, especially in
wine, reduces the pro-
duction of the dangerous
chemicals.
I recommend limiting
consumption of high-
temperature-cooked red
meats.

Marking in bulk


Dear Heloise: I buy
shampoo, conditioner,
soap and toothpaste in
bulk. With a marker, I
always label the bottles be-
fore putting them away. For
example, if I buy a package
of five bottles, I label the
first one "one out of five"
and so on. When I do this,
I don't have to worry about
buying too much or when I
will need to buy more. A
Reader, via email

Fire-ant bites
Dear Heloise: I received
multiple fire-ant bites to
my right foot. Over-the-
counter remedies were
mostly ineffective and
short-lived against the
blisters and the itching.
I used a half-gallon of
cool water and a gener-
ous cup of white vinegar
as a soaking solution. The
effects of the soaking last-
ed many hours and could
be repeated as frequently
as needed. Donna S.,
via email
You have discovered
one of vinegar's amazing
qualities. It is a natural
antiseptic that can be used
to stop the itching of not
only fire-ant bites, but
also wasp stings and other
insect bites. You can pour
vinegar on a cloth or paper
towel and place over the
"bite." Obviously, if you
have an insect allergy, fol-
low your doctor's instruc-
tions on what to do if bit.
It is so easy to love vinegar,
and there are many more
hints available in my

insect bites, pour over the

cloth. Heloise

Less dust to clean
Dear Heloise: I moved
into a new house a few
years ago. Since I have
vaulted ceilings, my
kitchen cabinets do
not have a soffit over
them. I put some cute
decorations on top of the
cabinets. Several months
later, I got up there to
clean and was amazed at
how dirty it was. I cleaned
like crazy, then put
waxed paper on top of
the cabinets and put my
decorations back. Now
when I have to clean, it's
just the decorations. I pull
off the old, dirty waxed
paper and stretch out a
new layer. Nanci C. in

Wife feels violated after being

awakened by husband's touch


MALLARD FILLMORE By Bruce Tinsley


DEAR ABBY: I love my
husband very much. Until
the last few years there have
never been any problems in
our 20-year marriage. I have
depression and epilepsy,
and I am on five different
medications for them.
Sometimes when I have
come out of a seizure, I
have found that my clothes
have been removed and
my husband is "touching"
me. Also, because the
medication puts me into a
deep sleep at night, I have
half-awakened to him
having sex with me. I am
so groggy I can't respond. Is
this right? I feel like I have
been violated, but I haven't
said anything to him. This
causes me to cringe most of
the time when he touches
me now.
I'd like to get back to a
normal love life, but I can't
get over what he does to
me when I'm not fully
aware. How do I tell him
I know what he has been
doing without ruining my
marriage? -FEELING
VIOLATED IN RIO
RANCHO, N.M.
DEAR FEELING
VIOLATED: You feel
violated because what
your husband is doing is
called spousal rape, and
it's a criminal offense.
Having sex with someone
who is so doped up she (or
he) can't give consent is
a sexual assault. Tell your
husband you know what he
has been doing, how you
feel about it and that you
would prefer that the two
of you make love while you
are wide awake and able to
fully enjoy it. This should be
discussed with a marriage
counselor and, if necessary,
the police.
DEAR ABBY: I'm a
married father of two very
young children (2 and
6 months). I have excessive
student loan debt that is
making my life extremely
tough, and between that,
day care and my mort-
gage, I'm on the brink of
bankruptcy.
My mother is extremely
wealthy. She is very involved
with my family and we both
do things to help each other
out. I mow the grass in her
large yard every week.


DearAbby


She sees me struggling,
yet she makes no offer
to help financially. I am
becoming resentful about
it. If she helped, it would
not change her lifestyle at
all. My wife's family is the
opposite. Her parents aren't
wealthy, but they have done
everything within their
power to help their children.
I know how I will treat MY
kids.
Am I wrong to feel resent-
ment because my mother
has decided differently? Or
should I just "grow up"? -
FRUSTRATED IN NORTH
CAROLINA
DEAR FRUSTRATED:
If you have discussed with
your mother that you are
under extreme financial
pressure and she has re-
fused to help, then I can see
why you might feel some
resentment. My question
is, HAVE you talked to her
about it? That would be the
"grown-up" thing to do.
The worst she can say is no.
If she does, what you will
need to do is take a part-
time job to help with the
bills even if it means you
mow your mother's lawn
less often.
DEAR ABBY: Next month
will be our 25th anniversary.
My wife and I are perma-
nently separated, but will
not divorce because she
would lose health coverage
under my employer's plan.
How do I acknowledge this
"landmark"- or should I
just ignore it, since it isn't
really a celebratory event?
-NOT QUITE AN EX IN
THE SOUTH
DEAR NOT QUITE AN
EX: If you and your wife are
on speaking terms, call her
and say something nice. Or
send her a card. If you're
not on friendly terms, then
diplomatically ignore the
landmark.


"Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy;
break up your fallow ground:for it is time to seek the
Lord; till he come and rain righteousness upon you. -
Hosea 10:12
To seek the Lord we must first be willing to break up
our hard hearts. We must be sensitive to Him and to His
command. obedience to this verse is sure to bring revival.

North had a tough decision to
make at his last turn; should he call it
a day and pass or try to "gild the lily"
by raising? He knew they were
getting a diamond lead rather than a
heart through his king, so a club
fragment from partner might be
enough to set up the clubs and bring

Could South make


West led the jack of diamonds and
East allowed it to hold. West made
the obvious shift to the queen of
hearts. Declarer ducked this, hoping
for a singleton or doubleton ace in the
East hand. No luck. South ruffed the
third round of hearts, drew trumps in
two rounds, and had to decide how to
tackle the club suit.
A little basic counting was all that
was needed. West had led the jack of
diamonds. The 10 of diamonds was
in dummy. Most players would lead
small from three to the jack, so he
was probably leading high from a
doubleton. Declarer could place East
with seven diamonds. East had
followed suit to three hearts and two
spades, so therefore could have no
more than one club. Declarer cashed
the king of clubs, in case that
singleton was the queen, and then ran
the 10 of clubs with supreme
confidence something that only
comes with good card counting.

CALL US AT 941-206-1000 THE WIRE PAGE 1 SPORTS PAGE 1 I think the main problem of your paper is the sports section. Suggestion, offer a new section for high school sports like WaterLine (and let people choose whether or not they subscribe to that section). I dont think you would get more than 10 percent participation. Most of your readers are not from here. No interest in high school sports. ES Thanks, ES. Do you have contacts at the CIA who might have been reading my email and passing along interesting tidbits to you? Your suggestion is exactly what we have been discussing for the last year or two. We are thinking about delivering a customized newspaper to every home. We have already partially implemented this idea with our TV book and our WaterLine weekly. We charge separately for those two products. About half our readers want our TV book and about half also want our WaterLine product. There is some overlap, but there are many who read WaterLine but not the TV book. We believe one day readers will also be able to choose whether they receive Feeling Fit, Lets Go, sports, high school sports, and perhaps a more robust business section. We also believe advertisers will be able to target their advertising by household-specic demographic data such as subscribers with pools, or a Cadillac in their garage. Packaging and delivering a customized paper to every home is quite a difcult challenge. Carriers must remember, as they drive along the road, which houses receive WaterLine and which houses receive the TV book, in addition to memorizing which houses are newspaper subscribers. The list changes almost every day. It is not an easy job, particularly when it is dark and house numbers are not very visible. The challenge is that even our best carriers could not keep up with even more customization. Our current mail room cannot keep customer papers in proper order with our current equipment. We are currently building a distribution facility capable of keeping all of this straight. The right customized paper to the right house every single day is our long-term plan. We think our customized paper will be phased in gradually over several years. We will keep you posted.Thank youWe had a wonderful Welcome Back Open House Nov. 9. Hundreds of people came by. Many of you took a tour of our facility. The next time you come to our Open House, the new mail room will be live and operational. Thank you to all those wonderful folks who shared their antique cars with us at the Open House. An event like that takes an army of volunteers: Janet and Ozzie Osborne, Ron Phillips, Dorothy Doman, Steve and Donna Kuhn, Don and Lee Royston, Rose and Cecil Coleman, Doug Wood, Connie Bliss, Dale Green, Clyde Goodall and Earl Clark, to name just a few.

Marbut, a San Antonio, Texasbased consultant brought in by the county and the city of Sarasota to study the areas growing homelessness issue, has been working on the report since August and has met with more than 250 people and or ganizations that serve the homeless. Marbut recently said that Englewood leads the county in homeless families, followed closely by North Port and Nokomis. According to a Sarasota Family YMCA survey used in Marbuts report, more than 400 families with nearly 800 children are homeless or on the brink of being so in Sarasota County. In his report, Marbut recommends that the county establish two 24-hour intake portals for homeless families, with one each in North and South County. He said that a promising site for a South County Family Village has been identied by the St. Davids Episcopal Church Jubilee Center in Englewood at a cul-de-sac near 350 N. Elm St. The site, located within ve blocks of an elementary school, a park and a prekindergarten center, is currently the abandoned Lemon Bay Apartments complex. Cost estimates were not provided. An intake portal would become the emergency room for any homeless family with children and any unaccompanied minors living in South Homeless site tappedBy SCOTT LOCKWOODSTAFF WRITERExpert: Englewood shelter would get families off streetsHOMELESS | 7 Sweet musicSUN PHOTO BY BETSY WILLIAMSSunday evening, the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, conducted by new Maestro Raaele Ponti, opened its 2013-2014 season with a spectacular sold-out concert at the Charlotte Performing Arts Center in Punta Gorda. More photos on page 10.During the rst half of the year, Charlotte County and Sarasota County each saw the fewest number of reported serious crimes in over 12 years. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcements semiannual Uniform Crime Reports for January to June, Charlotte County agencies, which include the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce and the Punta Gorda Police Department, received 1,902 reports of serious referred to in the report as index crimes during the rst six months of 2013. Thats down about 6 percent from a year ago, and the fewest since 2000. The most signicant decreases were in the number of burglaries and petty thefts. By using intelligence-led policing, we are better able to predict and target potential criminal activity, said Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Prummell. That helps with preventing crime as well as solving crimes. Countywide, there were 115 fewer burglaries and petty thefts in 2013 than the beginning of last year. Other index crimes include murder, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault and motor vehicle theft. The number of forcible rapes in Charlotte County jumped from 15 to 23, and the amount of aggravated assaults rose from 141 to 155. However, the countys clearance rate for index crimes was 38.2 percent. Thats up about 4 percent from last year. That means of all the crimes that are being reported, we are able to successfully resolve more of them, said Prummell. The Punta Gorda Police Departments clearance rate 40 percent was the highest of any major law enforcement agency in Sarasota, Charlotte or DeSoto counties. Like Charlotte, Sarasotas agencies received reports of fewer index crimes during the front end of 2013 than a year ago. Such crimes from January to June dropped in Sarasota by 10.3 percent from 6,265 last year to 5,621. Thats the lowest total since 1999. Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight is pleased with law enforcement in the area. It makes this news better for me Report: Crime stats dipBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERCRIME | 7The median sales price for singlefamily homes in the Charlotte County area stood at $125,000 in October, representing a 14 percent increase from $110,000 a year ago, according to data released Wednesday from the Punta Gorda-Port Charlotte-North Port Association of Realtors. While year-over-year statistics continue to show a strong rebound in the housing market, last months gure actually fell from $138,000 in September, which was a high-water mark since the plunge of 2008. The median price is that at which half the homes sold for more, and half for less. Year to year, I see nothing but good. Overall, were looking at a positive trend, said Sharon Neuhofer, the associations president and a Realtor with Coldwell Banker Morris Realty in Punta Gorda. One factor in the month-to-month decline in the median price was the number of foreclosures sold in October, dragging down prices, she said. Foreclosure sales were up signicant ly last month from a year ago, going from 56 to 96, for a 71 percent jump. The median sales price for these homes is holding at $81,500. Offsetting this somewhat was the number of short sales, which fell from 52 in October 2012 to 23 last month, a 56 percent drop. The sale of more foreclosures brought prices down, Neuhofer said. It has an impact on median sale prices. On a brighter note, the median price among nondistressed homes rose by 21 percent, from $125,000 a year ago to $151,000 last month.

Sarasota 2050 was adopted in 2002 as part of the countys comprehensive plan. Its designed to encourage housing that meets low-impact standards and discourage urban sprawl outside of municipal areas that are mainly east of Interstate 75. The standards call for, among other things, diversity of housing within developments, and wilderness and wildlife preservation. There are some 2050 settlement areas south and west of Center Road near North Port, as well as some areas near Englewood. The biggest areas are in the Lakewood Ranch area in North County. All of the 2050 areas are in unincorporated areas of the county. Changes approved Wednesday include reducing the number of housing types within a 2050 hamlet from three to two, and the number of housing types in a village or settlement area from six to ve. County planning staff member Bill Spaeth said the different kinds of housing types are meant to encourage diversity and lifestyles within a community. Each 2050 development is required to have a commercial center with retail-type establishments that makes each community walkable. Changes adopted Wednesday include allowing commercial centers to be located anywhere within the developed area of a village, as long as it is easily accessible to village residents. There also could be more than one commercial center if a developer can show there is a market need. Several members of the public, including Lourdes Ramirez, who is running for the County Commission District 4 seat, opposed moving commercial centers to the edge of the village, and said it would create more traffic within the development. Since its adoption 11 years ago, only one 2050 development has broken ground so far the Grand Palm housing development in Venice, by Neal Communities. That community will feature 1,999 homes and amenities when completed. Two other 2050 developments were approved in South County. One is Myakka Pines, near the Myakka Pines golf course near Englewood, where no development has started. The other development, the Villages of Manasota Beach near Englewood, was withdrawn. Wednesdays changes were the rst of three phases of changes to the plan. Commissioners have said changes are needed to help save it. Id like ... 2050 to have a real chance to work, but it has to be exible so that it will work, Commissioner Charles Hines said. I think what weve done here allows for that exibility, and you can see that (we) as a commission want to talk about this as a group. This is just the rst part of this, and I think its the right step. In other business Wednesday, commissioners authorized a public hearing for the second phase of changes to the 2050 plan. Spaeth said there are 17 proposed changes in the second phase, including affordable housing and land-use mix, village size, and open space/ green belt/greenway requirements. A series of three public workshops will be held early next month that will allow the public to offer their input and learn more about the proposed changes prior to the hearing. The South County meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Dec. 4 at the Robert L. Anderson Administration Center in South Venice.Email: slockwood@sun-herald.comSarasota OKs first wave of 2050 plan changesBy SCOTT LOCKWOODSTAFF WRITER | CHARLOTTE | EVENTS | ENGLEWOOD | EVENTS Monday-Friday10-7Saturday10-6Sunday11-5Look for Special Offers only on www.anthonysa.com & www.facebook.com/anthonysa Exclusives Web LADIES APPARELSportSwearDreSSeSSwimwearacceSSorieSpetiteS*Not valid on Spanx, Jara, Not Your Daughters Jeans, Kristin Crenshaw, Seabreeze, Beachpointe, I.O.

The Sun /Thursday, November 21, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 3 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS Punta Gorda administrative staff presented a trimmed-down version of an energy-savings program Wednesday that focuses on energy-efcient lighting in public facilities around the city. The $725,000 program, which represents a steep discount from the $1.2 million proposal pitched by staff and members of the ConEdison Solutions team in August, received the green light from the City Council during its regular meeting. The council will vote on the nal contract next month. The revised proposal not only reduces the overall price of the contract, it shortens the return on investment, said Public Works director Rick Keeney. We looked at the payback in years, Keeney said. That was one of our main criteria. When we came to you on Aug. 28, the payback was 16 years and the cost was $1.2 million. We reduced the list and prioritized it. Today its about $725,000 and right around a 12-year payback. The new energy program focuses on improving interior and exterior lighting systems in all city buildings, retrotting xtures in the citys water treatment and wastewater treatment plants, lighting improvements at the Herald Street Parking Garage, as well as retrotting each of the citys 384 decorative lamps that illuminate sidewalks, walkways and side streets with LED lighting. The retrot will not apply to lighting xtures on state Department of Transportation roadways because current DOT policy does not permit use of LED lighting on DOT projects. Did you choose this particular project because of a lot of our lighting xtures are coming up to be replaced anyway? asked Councilwoman Kim Devine. That is part of it, Keeney replied. We have outdated xtures and the bulbs are not efcient, so we feel its a good project to move forward with. It shows good cash ow and its positive. The recommendations call for a suite of lighting improvements that will cost $725,131 and result in $59,391 in annual savings with a payback period of 12.2 years, city ofcials said. Its actually much more nancially attractive as far as the payback is concerned, said Jeff Wykoff, program manager for ConEdison Solutions. All of these new lighting technologies also have, in addition to a lower usage of energy, the benet of a much longer life span. City finance director David Drury said staff is looking into ways to pay for the energy program outright from city funds, as opposed to borrowing money. In other news, City Council members agreed on topics theyd like to discuss with Charlotte County commissioners at the upcoming annual joint meeting between the city and county. Among the items on the citys agenda: the 2013 Charlotte County needs assessment, the infrastructure sales surtax referendum, the South County overlay, gateway beautication update, the transfer of roadways between state and local government and ood insurance.

State researchers are still gathering data, but from all indications, this year may not be record-breaking, but it has been a banner year for sea turtle nesting. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission researchers still are gathering reports on sea turtle nesting throughout the state, but indications from 26 selected index beaches are that this year saw high numbers of loggerhead, green and leatherback sea turtle nests. According to the FWC website www.myfwc. com, reports show nearly 45,000 loggerheads nests on Florida beaches. In 1998, loggerheads peaked at 59,918 reported nests on index beaches. Leatherback nests dropped from a 600 nest peak to 322 nests this year. However, those nest counts are higher than what was seen in the early and mid-1990s, when less than 100 nests were reported. The real jump has been in green turtle nesting. In fact, the state is seeing a record number of green turtle nests. This year, the nests jumped from slightly more than 10,000 in 2009, to more than 25,000 this year. We are astounded and pleased by the high number of green turtle nests documented in 2013, said Blair Witherington, FWC research scientist, in a prepared statement last month. It looks like the years of conservation efforts for this endangered species are paying off. Locally, the sea turtle nesting season extends from May 1 to Oct. 31, and the reports are good. It wasnt the most nests weve ever had, but it was a great year for hatching, Brenda Bossman said. Shes the primary permit holder overseeing voluntary sea turtle patrols on Knight and Don Pedro islands. On Knight and Don Pedro, last year was a record year with 319 loggerhead nests reported. However Bossman said 14,792 eggs hatched this year, while only 8,468 eggs hatched last year. The reason was only 40 nests were affected this year by storms, she said. In 2012, most of our nests more than half were affected by storms. Like elsewhere in Florida, Bossman reported 17 green turtle nests, compared with ve nests in 2012, and a previous record of eight nests. The numbers may seem low since most green turtles nest on Floridas Atlantic beaches. (Green sea turtles) used to be here, she said. Mote Marine Laboratory oversees sea turtle nesting from Longboat Key south to Venice. According to Motes website, www. mote.org, this year was a near-record for logger heads, and nearly doubled the expected green turtle nests. This season saw 2,247 loggerhead nests, of which 896 were on Casey Key, and 316 on Venice beaches. Mote also reported 30 green turtle nests, of which 16 were on Casey Key, and one in Venice. The Coastal Wildlife Club oversees sea turtle nesting on Manasota Key. While end-of-season numbers have not been posted, the clubs website at www.coastalwildlife club.org reported 2,629 loggerhead nests and 68 green turtle nests on Aug. 23. During the same time period, the club reported Little Gasparilla Island saw 102 logger heads nests and one green turtle nest.Email: reilly@sun-herald.comGood year for turtle nestingBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITER Rummage sale and food driveThere will be a rummage sale and food drive for Englewood Helping Hand from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Dec. 7 at 2400 S.

It would take in and start services for families and provide stabilization, emergency housing, case management and referral services. Marbut recommended that the Jubilee Center in Englewood should be designated the lead service agency for the South County portal and encouraged to collaborate with as many other agencies as possible. Pat Knox of the Jubilee Center and Aimee Kirvin, administrator for Englewood Helping Hand, agree that a center to help homeless families would serve the community well. For seven years, the Jubilee Center has worked for the homeless and other low-income res idents in the Englewood area with its food pantry, backpack program for Englewood Elementary School, free clothing and referral services. At Englewood Elementary alone, Knox said, 22 children have been identied as being homeless. Were serving 220 families and 600 individuals, Knox said. The homeless numbers are really going up. Theres no affordable housing now. Recently, she said she called seven different area shelters, and they were all full. Knox said she had identied the defunct Lemon Bay Garden Apartments as a site that could serve homeless families. If the property were purchased whether by Sarasota County, the state, or through grants, Knox said she expects the community would come together. It will only happen if all the organizations and churches come together, Knox suggested. Helping Hand is also seeing homeless families, often those who can no longer couch surf with friends and others, Kirvin said. No federal Housing and Urban Development housing assistance is available, and theres a two-year waiting list. Those needing the assistance locally, Kirvin said, are single-parent or two-parent families where one or both adults have lost their jobs. At the request of County Commissioner Christine Robinson, Mary Ellen Diez, a member of the Englewood Community Redevelopment Agency Advisory Board, explored homelessness in Englewood. Diez was part of a Sarasota County delegation that visited a homeless shelter one that Marbut helped design in Clearwater. When asked if theres a need for a center serving homeless families, Diez said, Yes, it would serve Englewood well. Robinson said Wednesday she wasnt surprised that Marbut suggested building a shelter for families in Englewood, especially after hearing Marbut talk about the number of homeless families in South County. I was surprised when he originally told me that Englewood led the area in homeless families, but not now, she said. Hes prepared the community for this report really well and there are no surprises in here. Marbut whose consultation fee is $40,000 will ofcially present his 55-page report in a public meeting at 9 a.m. Nov. 25 at the Venice Community Center, 326 Nokomis Ave. Staff writer Steve Reilly contributed to this report.Email: slockwood@sun-herald.comHOMELESSFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY STEVE REILLYNational homelessness expert Dr. Robert Marbut has suggested that Sarasota County build a South County Family Village that would serve area homeless families at the site of the former Lemon Bay Garden Apartments on North Elm Street in Englewood.BY THE NUMBERSDr. Robert Marbuts 55-page report on the homelessness issue in Sarasota County used the results of several surveys conducted by agencies that serve the homeless: a YMCA survey on homeless families, a survey by the Suncoast Partnership to End Homelessness that showed there are 1,460 single adults in the county who are homeless including 177 in the South County area from Osprey to the Sarasota/ Charlotte County line and statistics from other agencies like law enforcement. According to the report: There is a shortage of at least 1,187 beds/mats for adults (does not include families). 21percent of the jail population is homeless. 85.6percent of the adult population is from North County (north of Osprey; includes the Sarasota County Jail). When the jail population is excluded, 82.8percent of all adults are from North County. There are 348 homeless families and a total of 637 homeless children and youth. 71 families and 156 children are identified as being at imminent risk of becoming homeless, meaning they could be homeless within a two-week period. Combined total for families and children facing homelessness: 419 families, with 793 children and youth. The average age of a child facing homelessness is 10. According to the survey, 20percent of children/youth facing homelessness are age 0-5; 73percent are 6-17; and 7percent are 18-21. The average age of an unaccompanied homeless youth is 18. Additionally, Marbut said there is a very high number of homeless families with children, and homeless, unaccompanied minors in Sara sota County. Last school year, there were 907 unduplicated homeless K-12 students, of which 87 were unaccompanied youth in county public schools. These numbers do not include siblings under the age of 5. This means more than five students become homeless every school day in Sarasota County. Compiled by Scott Lockwood because all the local agencies are performing well, he said. Each index crime saw a drop from a year ago, except motor vehicle theft, which rose only slightly from 198 to 203. Knight said he can see his own agency has been properly deploying resources. The SCSO had a 12.8 percent decline in reported index crimes. Our strategy of policing is working, he said. This is a tourist county and a real estate county. We want our friends up north to keep coming down and pumping money into the economy. Knight personally commended the North Port Police Department, who saw an 18.6 percent plunge in index crimes at the beginning of 2013. The Venice Police Department saw crime slip 4.4 percent. In DeSoto County, reported index crimes rose 6.1 percent. There was a signicant jump in aggravated assaults 59 to 91 and petty thefts 209 to 254. Statewide, crime volume dropped 5.2 percent compared to the rst six months of 2012. Our communities are on a path to a 43-year crime low, which improves the quality of life for families and benefits all aspects of our communities, Gov. Rick Scott said in a press release.

The production is called tourism and it plays out on stages from our beautiful beaches to exciting theme parks, nature preserves, golf courses and the Everglades. Ticket sales in the form of revenues continue to climb, and 2013 has been one of the best years ever. Sarasota County has had a lead in the production and Charlotte County, while lling only a bit role, can also boast of strong gains in tourism the past several months. Florida, according to a recent report, saw a 1.7 percent increase in tourism in the third quarter of 2013, which ended in September. That period saw the most third-quarter visitors, 22.9 million, in the states history for that time of the year. So far this year, 72.6 million visitors have dipped their toes in the Gulf of Mexico or Atlantic Ocean and/or experienced the thrill of rides at theme parks in Orlando, Tampa or Winter Haven. Between January and August this year, those tourists spent $51.8 billion in the state. Sarasota, and Charlotte to a lesser degree, have beneted from the bump in tourism. Virginia Haley, Visit Sarasota president, said the county will see a 10 percent jump in visitor spending when gures are all in for the scal year that ended Oct. 1. Haley attributed the higher numbers to events like the PanAmerican Masters Championship swim meet in June, a normally quiet month for tourism, and the U.S. Masters Rowing Championship this past August. But, what has really helped us, she said, is the boost in our promotion budget (mostly thanks to the extra penny sales tax enacted in 2010). Sarasota is not letting success give it a false sense of accomplishment. Indeed, the county is working on a new BMX racing track that will attract competitors from all over. It has launched an aggressive marketing campaign in the Northeast in cooperation with JetBlue, targeting customers and potential visitors in New York and Boston. Charlotte County, meanwhile, struggles to come up with money for promotions, but still has seen a jump in bed tax revenues (money paid for hotel rooms and condo rentals) for three straight years. Lorah Steiner, director of tourism for Charlotte County, said bed tax totals for scal year 2013 were $1,520,176 up from about $1.47 million in 2012. Its been an amazing year for us, Steiner said. Our September numbers were up 16 percent in room revenue and that is an important indicator because it means people are being less price-sensitive and more willing to pay for accommodations instead of wanting to go home with money in their pocket. Charlottes success is despite cutbacks in the past couple of years on money for research and marketing. If Charlotte County would run tourism as a subsidiary business and boost its marketing of ecotourism, lm and TV (one area the county has made progress in), sports and our beaches, we believe the outcome would far overshadow the expense. The time is ripe to jump on the tourism bandwagon. Charlotte County needs to be more aggressive in its approach and there is no better model than its northern neighbor. | LETTER SUBMISSION POLICYAnguishing over entitlement legacy Tea partiers misunderstood Its time for a clean slate We need national health care system Missed coverage of Midwest storms She wants smaller recylable container Tone down the hyperbole Social services are necessaryEditor: In the Nov. 18 edition of the Sun a letter plays the race card by alleging that the GOP has a racially based strategy because it favors reform of entitlement programs which may disproportionately affect minorities. He fails to acknowledge that the GOP also favors scal responsibility and is concerned about other entitlement programs such as health care and Social Security. Does the writer favor our continuing to borrow money to fund entitlement programs ad nauseam? Over half of our federal revenues now go to fund entitlement programs. Our national debt is now over $17 trillion and growing. Some economists predict that if continuing on the current path our annual debt will equal GDP by the year 2030. The federal government ran out of money by the end of the third quarter of this year and all monies spent since then has been borrowed. I would submit that now that half the population pays no taxes, we have a country on a collision course with bankruptcy. The liberals in our government and population dont seem to worry about how entitlement programs are going to be funded. I anguish over the legacy our current government is going to leave for our grandchildren.Scott Glover Punta GordaEditor: Im often astounded by the lack of civility and accuracy of people who express opposition to the Republican Party in general and the tea party in particular. The outright and blatant offenses seem to be without number, so, for the record, lets describe for you what a conservative tea partier is. We believe that the government that governs least, governs best. We share this position with a number of the Founding Fathers of this country. Read some history people. We believe children should be educated for the world that exists not some fanatical dream of what it should be. We believe that helping the poor is something all persons should do, but not by way of a government that cant reliably do it. We believe that there are some functions best left up to the federal government; these do not Editor: I would like to second a writers commendations that we, the public, vote all of the present politicians out of ofce. This may seem a little dramatic, but they have proved that they are not competent or willing to make much of the needed changes to benet the public. You know, the people they are supposed to represent. The only way we are going to get something started is with a clean slate that is dedicated to improvement.Arthur Irons Rotonda WestEditor: The USA already had a national health care system that worked well before Obamacare. It provided health care and still does for millions of people. Of course, its called Medicare and is paid for with contributions. The easier answer in my opinion, to provide health care to all citizens, instead of Obamacare, extend Medicare to all citizens. This would provide maximum coverage for minimum cost, as Medicare overhead is a lot lower than private insurance that have maximum limits and includes prots. The insurance companies could still be allowed to sell supplemental coverage. Additional saving would be the elimination of Medicaid, exchanges and state programs. To provide Medicare to all citizens regardless of age would require more contributions from all citizens with income above the poverty level without any limit on the amount of income requiring contributions. Hopefully this would fund the majority of the costs. The rest of course, if necessary, would have to be made up by cutting some spending or raising some taxes. Do we really need 11 or more nuclear aircraft carriers when no other country except France has one? As for the argument would you rather want the government or a private insurance company to make your health care decisions, I dont want a for-prot company making mine. To minimize transition problems this could be done over a few years.Edward G. Threm Port CharlotteEditor: When I picked up my paper Monday morning I was surprised that there was no mention on the front page about the devastating storms that struck the Midwest early Sunday afternoon. I thought maybe they did a bigger story on Page 2 or Page 3, but no. Not one mention of the ravaged towns and six dead, not one mention of Washington, Ill., that was almost completely wiped out. Oh, I am sorry, there was a picture in the sports section of some Baltimore Ravens standing in a tunnel at Solider Field in Chicago because of a rain delay. Maybe your reporter could Editor: I am writing in question as to our recyclable containers in Charlotte County. We were delivered 64 gallon containers. I called Waste Management and asked for a smaller container. I was told Charlotte County does not have smaller containers available. The next street to us was delivered smaller containers, they are in Charlotte County. So I called Waste Management back and the same thing repeated. This is a lie and they insist no one in Charlotte County has smaller containers. Can someone answer why Waste Management continues to lie to us in Charlotte County?Marsha Salter EnglewoodEditor: Several letters to your paper call for the impeachment of the president for high crimes and misdemeanors. Obsessed by the Benghazi snafu, by the fact that Obama was really born in Kenya, and now by the botched launch of Obamacare, they will try anything to de-legitimize his election, twice. Benghazi resulted in the death of four Americans. The Iraq War resulted in the death of 4,000 Americans and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi citizens. It cost trillions of borrowed Chinese dollars on the faulty intelligence that Saddam harbored weapons of mass destruction and he cavorted with al-Qaida terror ists, neither of which turned out to be true. There are indeed strong indications that the intelligence was manufactured to t an agenda. What should have been the punishment for President Bush? I have more suitable candidates for impeachment: shutting down the government, threatening the good faith and credit of the U.S. on a temper tantrum, and then squealing like pigs being herded for the Editor: It wasnt the poor who brought down the U.S. economy and made it easier to send middle-class jobs overseas, who stood against increasing the minimum wage and the ones who cut food stamps. People need to understand that many Americans who use assistance programs have fulltime jobs at minimum wage. For all these critics who are against our great country and social services, if you ever need them, hopefully they will be there for you. Im glad to give my tax dollars to help others, when they need it, even if theyre not on food stamps. The state of Florida has 47 percent of its population on food stamps.Georey Ward Englewood | LETTERS TO | THE EDITORhave done some real work and found out more about the storm (oh wait you do not have any reporters, you just sit by your computers and wait for someone else to do a story that you can cut and paste). Whoever is in charge of this operation (if anyone) should be red. Im sure that person could get a great-paying job in Washington, D.C., they have quite a few openings for people qualied in doing nothing.John Lenigan North Portabattoir when some basic services of the government are suspended. These are willful acts. If the Germans or the Japanese dared to do that, we would declare war on them. There are faint indications that adults are resurging in the Republican Party. This country does need a sane opposition party. Lets keep the faith and tone down the hyperbole.Rom Mattesich Punta Gordainclude health, education or public welfare. We are not at war with women, immigrants, minorities or the elderly. We do not want dirty water, air or food. We do not believe that taxing carbon emissions in this country will have any effect on global warming. We do believe that if you have contributed to a government program that you are entitled to benet from it. So, as a conservative, I will continue to believe that we live in a great country and that, on occasion, we elect people who have no idea what theyre doing. Over time, it all balances out.Cliord Rogers Port Charlotte U C aadn?

The Sun /Thursday, November 21, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 9 VIEWPOINTHere we go again, another year, another multimillion-dollar effort to expand gambling in Florida. In full disclosure, as a former state legislator, I have taken numerous votes on the issue. I am neither morally nor religiously opposed to gambling. Likewise, Im not an enthusiastic supporter of turning Florida into the Las Vegas of the East. That view placed me in an interesting category as votes were being tallied, neither stridently opposed nor closely aligned with any of the pro-expansion factions. Its a tough sell every legislative session, yet the issue returns along with the very generous checkbooks of those seeking to inuence the Legislature: generous with campaign contributions, generous with expense accounts, generous with multiplying their lobbying teams. The opposition to any expansion comes from three major players: the religious right, who morally object to gambling; Disney, which nancially objects, and law enforcement, which predicts increased crime. These three groups are politically inuential and adept at ghting with grassroots support. Make no mistake, we already have considerable gambling in Florida. We have seasonal betting on horse racing, greyhound dog racing and Jai Alai. We have bingo in our Elks Lodges, Catholic churches and assisted living facilities. We have the Florida Lottery, which went from a weekly drawing in 1998 to numerous drawings and the addition of a multi-state lottery, Powerball. In 2004, Miami-Dade and Broward county voters approved slot machines in existing pari-mutuel facilities. Under the Federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act, Indian tribes are permitted to have any form of gambling that is legal in their state. The Seminole Tribe entered into a compact with the state of Florida. In return for a ve-year contract that gives them exclusive rights to blackjack, baccarat and other table games, the Tribe pays the state roughly $233 million a year from its $2 billiona-year enterprise, which includes several Hard Rock casinos. The Miccosukee Tribe seems to be content with slots, poker and bingo. The pari-mutuels, on the other hand, object to paying a 35 percent tax and to being limited to just slots and poker. Gambling magnates such as the Malaysian gaming giant, the Genting Group, have focused their sights on Florida to develop giant resort casinos. They contend these resorts would attract large conventions and greatly increase business tourism. They make their case for expansion on the benets from development: increased sales tax revenue, expanded property tax rolls, construction jobs; and the benets of expanded gambling: thousands of permanent jobs, a boost in tourism, top-notch entertainers and a cut of the gaming revenue for the state. Any move the Legislature makes has domino effects in multiple directions. If the state allows other parties to offer expanded gaming, it breaks the exclusive compact with the Seminole Tribe, forgoing the $233 million annual payment. However, the ve-year contract is coming to an end and the state could renegotiate. The Seminole Tribe may lose exclusivity but would be able to pick up craps and roulette without paying the state. No skin off their noses. In the 2012 session, the Republicancontrolled Legislature failed to pass a bill allowing major casinos in South Florida. But the pro-expansion players are doubling down. According to a Florida Times-Union story, they contributed $1.4 million to political campaigns and committees in the 2012 campaign cycle compared to $2.8 million in the 2014 cycle. Instead of counting cards, theyre counting votes. And based on the contributions to the governors political committee, theyre hoping hell be their ace in the hole. So what are the odds? Polls show Floridians are evenly split on casino gambling but those who are opposed feel much stronger about their position. These individuals tend to be older, more religious and more conservative. In other words, Republican. In an election year, Republican legislators fearing a primary challenge might nd themselves between a rock and a hard place. The Florida Chamber of Commerce joined the Florida Sheriffs Association, Disney and the Christian Coalition in opposition, making it more difcult for Republicans, especially Orlando-area Republicans, to vote for expansion. The No Casinos group is organized and working in tandem with the other members of the opposition to decry the crime, corruption, addiction and poverty associated with gambling. The pro-gambling players have competing interests and do not work as a cohesive group, with each trying to cut their own side deals. The issue gets increasingly complicated as the amendments start ying. What they lack in unanimity they make up with in nancial resources. You can expect them to feed the kitties of many legislative campaigns between now and the start of the legislative session. It will take a coalition of Democrats, moderate Republicans and South Florida legislators to deal the gambling interests a winning hand. Its more likely to pass in the Florida Senate. I wouldnt bet the House on it. Paula Dockery is a syndicated columnist who served in the Florida Legislature for 16 years as a Republican from Lakeland.

Another Legislative session, another roll of the dice Paula Dockery Port Charlottes Parkside is an example of a neighborhood that received little attention from local politicians, government and residents since the area rst started is downward spiral some 25 years ago when the original owners started passing away. Now that it has been allowed to deteriorate to the point where it ofcially qualies as a blighted district, is it nally getting the attention it should have received decades ago. Charlotte County Commissioner Tricia Duffy should be applauded for doing what hasnt been done in decades, and that is to show a willingness to get in the trenches, meet with residents and let them have input into the future of Parkside. As a result, we have seen Team Parkside formed, which has started to ad dress some issues, such as cleaning up McGuire Park, the formation of neighborhood and business watch groups, a community garden, area cleanups, and many other initiatives that have boosted the image of Parkside and its residents. The Charlotte County Sheriffs ofce has stepped up their campaign to address street crime with new initiatives. Code enforcement has picked up its pace to address code violations. These efforts, as well as the insistence from some of the areas activists who are demanding permanent solutions for Parkside, should all be applauded, as they have demonstrated that they are willing to be part of the solution, and not contributors to the ongoing problems. The Citizens Master Plan for Parkside features infrastructure improvements, parks and open spaces, designed to make the area look urban in character, but it lacks details on how to effectively deal with the fact that close to 50 percent of the homes are not owned by the people who live in them. And while these improvements and initiatives are all noteworthy and a step in the right direction, they alone will not make the neighborhood a great place to live, work and raise your family, in that they do not address and fix the root problem that plagues the area. Communities from Boston to Naples have nally acknowledged that absentee landlordism is a fundamental root problem in their communities, and have started to take meaningful action against people living hundreds of miles away who dont care about the condition of their property, the type of people that they rent to, and its consequences on the community and its residents. The reality is that some of these folks have been major contributors to the blight in Parkside for years, and most of them operate with near impunity. Being classied a blighted area must mean more than a status that qualies a neighborhood for federal monies from a variety of programs that really dont get to the root of the problem. Surely, putting pavers in intersections, planting a canopy of trees on streets, and other cosmetic changes are well-intended and an essential component in turning a community around, but they dont address the underlying core problem. These repairs will not have signicant impact unless the core problem is identied and xed. If not, they are akin to putting lipstick on a pig. Many residents share this concern and hope that our commissioners will not be trapped into thinking that cosmetic changes alone will result in any meaningful transformation of Parkside. Knowing that true change requires out-of-the-box thinking and proactive solutions that result in making changes in the way that the county does business in a blighted area, they want our commissioners to step up and establish tough rules for absentee landlords, rules that many communities have already adopted because its the only meaningful solution to this problem. Due to the high stakes, absentee landlords in blighted areas should be required to obtain a business license and have the property inspected to ensure it meets code prior to renting it. If they choose to neglect their property or rent to people who are arrested and convicted of felonies, including drug violations, they could lose their rental license or be required to post a bond in order to continue doing business as a rental property. Some cities are even charging absentee landlords for the extra police staffing and services that are needed to maintain order on their streets. The process for adjudicating code enforcement violations must be fast-tracked in a blighted area. A special magistrate for the Parkside area could possibly help in this regard. TIF funds and rental licenses fees could be used to hire a cadre of temporary part-time rental and code enforcement inspectors assigned exclusively to Parkside until the problems get resolved. Commissioners must deny any requests for zoning changes that exacerbate the problem, including the rejection of accessory zoning, whereby additional people can be squeezed into Parkside through the construction of in-law apartments or similar types of habitable out-buildings. They need to review Smart Charlotte 2050 and eliminate any efforts to turn Parkside, and any other area of Charlotte County, into an urban zone. The core problems in Parkside need intervention before the situation gets to the point of no return. Our commissioners have to send a clear message to absentee landlords that the residents of Parkside will not tolerate any further irresponsibility by these property owners. We should not be enabling behavior that contributes to sustaining blight in this area. These owners have to either take care of their property and rent to law-abiding and responsible people, or sell the property to an owner who is willing to do that.

Meanwhile, closed sales for townhouses and condos soared 30 percent in October from a year ago, from 54 to 70. Also, the median sales price for condos was up 8 percent to $108,000, from just under $100,000 the previous year. The months supply of inventory for condos fell to just over 5, compared to more than six and a half a year ago, a 23 percent drop. In contrast, the months supply of inventory for single-family homes is up to just over ve and a half months, or 12 per cent more than the ve months of year ago. The months supply of inventory represents the time it would take to deplete the current inventory at the current sales rate. Six months is considered a balanced market between buyers and sellers. In Sarasota County, the residential market is doing even better. Median sales prices continued to climb in Sarasota County in October, compared with year-over-year numbers, according to the Sarasota Association of Realtors. Single-family home prices were up 12 percent $185,776 this year, compared with $166,500 last year; while condo prices spiked by 21 percent, rising from $145,000 last October to $175,000 this year. Total property sales in Sarasota County, which had seen large year-over-year increases over the summer months, moderated in October. Overall property sales stood at 818 last month (582 single-family homes and 236 condos), compared to 793 sales in October 2012 (518 single family homes and 275 condos). The sales total was almost identical to the September 2013 total of 817, but there were big changes in the two property categories. There was denitely a shift in October toward single-family and away from condos, SAR President Roger Piro said. That might be a function of the price escalation, which was far more pronounced in t he condo category. Also in October, there were fewer properties on the market priced under $200,000 than last year, and more priced above $200,000. So bargain hunters have had to adjust their sights upward, where there are more deals to be found.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comHOUSINGFROM PAGE 1 50450774 50457583 You Cant Control the World, But You Can Control Your Decisions.

See Sports page 5.10 things to knowWASHINGTON Trouble inside the Air Forces nuclear missile force runs deeper and wider than ofcials have let on. An unpublished study for the Air Force, obtained by The Associated Press, cites burnout among launch ofcers with their ngers on the triggers of 450 weapons of mass destruction. Also, evidence of broader behavioral issues across the intercontinental ballistic missile force, including sexual assaults and domestic violence. The study, provided to the AP in draft form, says that court-martial rates in the nuclear missile force in 2011 and 2012 were more than twice as high as in the overall Air Force. Administrative punishments, such as written reprimands for rules violations and other misbehavior, also were higher in those years. These indicators add a new dimension to an emerging picture of malaise and worse inside the ICBM force, an arm of the Air Force with a proud heritage but an uncertain future. Concerned about heightened levels of misconduct, the Air Force directed RAND Corp., the federally funded research house, to conduct a threemonth study of work conditions and attitudes among the men and women inside the ICBM Nuke troubles run deepBy ROBERT BURNSASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERBurnout cited for misbehavior among weapons keepersNUKE | 4 AP FILE PHOTOThis April 15, 1997, photo shows an Air Force missile crew commander standing at the door of his launch capsule 100-feet underground where he and his partner are respon sible for 10 nuclear-armed ICBMs, in north-central Colorado.
