Giving



thanks
f you are reading this column, you
probably picked up today's gigantic
paper and carried it inside. I hope
the 5-pound weight of the paper didn't
throw out your
i t ~back interfering
with your holiday
festivities.
'9 Today's paper is
more than 1,200
iL / pages, including
all the advertise-
ments close to
an all-time record
avid Thanksgiving paper
Dai\ for us. One of our
DUNN-RANKIN roles as a commu-
PRESIDENTAND PUBLISHER nity newspaper is to
help advertisers and
consumers find each other. We would
not have such a successful business
without the support of our readers and
advertisers. I am thankful for each of
you today and every day.
Our paid print circulation is up over last
year. Thank you for your support. Your
backing allows us to engage in our core
mission of helping our communities be
great places in which to live, work and play.
In 2009 during the Great Recession,
as almost all our peers in the industry
continued to cut people, our company
made a decision to stop laying off
employees and stop giving furlough
days. Our company made a calculated
bet that together, with our incredibly
talented employees, we would find a
way to overcome the challenges of the
Great Recession.
It was a bit breathtaking as our profit
margin evaporated and went negative.
We believed in our employees and
the future. We've been rewarded with
growing revenue, circulation and the
return of profits. At the end of the day,
great employees, including our delivery
partners and quite extensive group of
freelance writers and photographers,
made our bet on the future pay off. I
am thankful today for each of them.
I am thankful for our parents. Janie
and I have all four parents alive today.
I am amazed how much smarter they
seem to get each year. Hardly a visit goes
by without another nugget of wisdom.
My favorite father-in-law dropped
this one on me when we were talking
about a Hollywood couple's breakup.
"The grass looks greener on the other
side of the fence. But remember, that
grass has to be mowed too."
In 1880, the United States' average
life expectancy was about 40 years.
Now life expectancy is closer to
80 years. Scientists now expect that
most children born today in the United
States will live over 100 years. When
you next meet someone in the health
care business, give them a hug. I am
thankful for what they mean to the
length and quality of our lives.
I am thankful to be alive in this great
country at this incredible time in history.
I wouldn't trade this time in history or
being in this country for any time or
any place. The joke around the office is
whenever anyone asks me "how's it
going?" I always say, "fantastic!" That's
also my standard reply in a restaurant or
at a civic meeting "fantastic!"
Life is not always fantastic! There are
always moments of anger, frustration,
envy and fatigue. Yet when those
moments arrive I usually reflect that
I've already won a billion to one life's
lottery. To be alive right now in history
and in this country, how can I not say
life is "fantastic!"
Thank you to our readers, advertis-
ers, and our staff for making our past
year special.

Happy Thanksgiving.
If you're busy stuffing a
turkey, peeling potatoes,
dipping apples in caramel,
cleaning toilets, decorating
a Christmas tree, watching
football and/or shopping,

thing you may (and may
not) need to know today.

fact, they never even had

CBS shows the parade at
9 a.m. as well but it calls
it "The Thanksgiving Day
Parade on CBS."
There may be more than

It's a love that persists
despite age and time. One
that, all these years later,
still makes the 95-year-
old Mary weep when she
talks about it.
Thanksgiving won't
be the same this year
without her beloved Bob
at home, but Mary is
thankful all the same.
"He's my life," she said,
dotting her tear-filled
eyes with a napkin off
her lunch tray. "He was
always so good to me."

Homeless Sarasota families get child care


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER
SARASOTA COUNTY-
The Early Learning Coalition
of Sarasota County is over-
seeing a new state program
that is allowing easier access
to child care for area home-
less families.
In July, Early Learning
came out with new, Florida
Legislature-mandated
criteria stating that children
of homeless families are


eligible for state-funded
scholarships on a priority
basis for a certain period of
time. The coalition, which
also receives assistance from
the Gulf Coast Community
Foundation in Venice,
provides administration
and oversight of the local
system of early education
for preschool-age children
in Sarasota County, ensuring
quality child care, early
learning and family access to
services for young children.


It serves more than 4,000
children.
"That's really a good thing,
because it opened up for
any child of a homeless
family that's involved with
a program that offers case
management," coalition
Executive Director Janet
Kahn said Wednesday. "It
won't be some random per-
son saying they're homeless
and needs child care. It
has to be referred from an
organization that's part of


the Suncoast Partnership to
End Homelessness."
Kahn said Suncoast
Partnership has a list of the
different programs in the
community that work with
families and provide case
management.
"We have memorandums
of understanding with those
organizations that they can
refer families who need
child care to us so we can

Gulf Cove United Methodist Church volunteers prepare stuffing and everything else to make
this Thanksgiving a special day for everyone who comes for a free dinner.



Sharing day of 'thanks'



around Englewood


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
ENGLEWOOD No
one needs to go without
a Thanksgiving dinner
or sit home alone today
around Englewood and
Cape Haze.
The day began early
Wednesday at Gulf
Cove United Methodist
Church. In what's
become an annual
tradition for nearly a
decade, the church
expects to serve 500 to
600 free Thanksgiving
dinners from noon to
3 p.m. today.
Everyone is invited,
said Don Teague, a
church member over-
seeing the preparation
and serving of this year's
dinners. Besides those
who come to the church,
volunteers expect to
deliver 100 meals to
shut-ins and those
without transportation.
"This is for young
and old, rich and poor,"
Teague said. Anyone
who wants to help serve
meals today also is in-
vited to join Teague and
other church members.
Volunteers busied
themselves Wednesday
cooking 30 turkeys, av-
eraging 20 pounds each,
along with 200 pounds
of sweet potatoes,
mashed potatoes, green
beens, stuffing and other
trimmings that make a
traditional Thanksgiving
meal.
"I think they have
some snowbirds
around here," said
Susan Morrow, a winter
resident from Michigan.
"This church does a huge
service for the commu-
nity, and we make it a
priority (that) we're down
here in time to help."
Another volunteer,
Marilyn Calladine, saw
the free Thanksgiving
meals as carrying out
the church's overall
mission: "To help people
meet, know and serve
Jesus Christ." Calladine
also said she enjoys the
camaraderie while pre-
paring the Thanksgiving
meals.
St. David's Episcopal
Church volunteers also
were busyWednesday,


Randy Moore carves one of 30 turkeys that will be served
up today at Gulf Cove United Methodist Church's annual free
Community Thanksgiving Dinner.


St. David's Episcopal Church volunteer Helen Rankin prepares
cups of cranberry sauce that will be served today at a free
Thanksgiving dinner at Englewood's Indian Mound Park, for
the homeless and lower-income residents.


preparing to serve more
than 200 Thanksgiving
dinners at Englewood's
Indian Mound Park
from noon to 2 p.m.,
for the homeless and
lower-income families. St.
David's is carrying on the
tradition church members
started with Englewood's
former Foursquare
Church. Like Gulf Cove,
Pat Knox said St. David's
plans to serve traditional
dinners that also will
include bread pudding
and pumpkin and apple
pies for dessert.
"I love being here," St.
David's volunteer Helen
Rankin said as she fin-
ished preparing a serving
of cranberry sauce.
While not part of any
church mission, Joanne
and Owen Anders,
the new owners of the
End Zone sports bar
and restaurant, are
carrying on the eatery's
tradition of serving free


Thanksgiving dinners.
Joanne said the restau-
rant served more than
300 dinners last year,
and the Anderses are
preparing to serve 400
to 480 dinners this year,
from noon to 3 p.m.
"Thanksgiving is a
time to come together,"
Joanne said. "We don't
want anyone to be alone.
Anyone who wants
can come (to the End
Zone) and be with other
people."
Joanne said she and
her husband recognize
that many local residents
have fallen on hard times.
The End Zone also is
working with Meals on
Wheels and Englewood
Transportation to deliver
meals or provide a ride
to the restaurant. For
more information about
delivery or transporta-
tion, call the End Zone at
941-473-9663.

Pantry offers extra Thanksgiving relief


By IAN ROSS
STAFF WRITER

MURDOCK- The
Charlotte County
Homeless Coalition was
able to give families
like Beckie Tokarski's
a little relief before
Thanksgiving.
The homeless coa-
lition's holiday pantry
helped many families
Monday who either
are homeless or, like
Tokarski's, are not home-
less but merely in need of
help.
"If it wasn't for them,
my children and I
would not be having a
Thanksgiving dinner,"
Tokarski said while
waiting to enter the
pantry. "If (the food) was
for (me and my husband),
I wouldn't care. But it's for
them."
The coalition is a
community support
organization that provides
a number of services,
including a weekly food
pantry every Monday.
Normally, families are
allowed to come to the
pantry once a month,
but Monday's holiday
pantry did not count as a
monthly visit. Essentially,
families were able to come
twice this month.
At the end of the day,
160 families took food

through the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition's Thanksgiving
pantry Monday. Across the aisle, volunteers like Laurie Nelson tell
clients what food options are available to them.


home from the pantry's
stores.
Tokarski said the
homeless coalition team
is personable, and vol-
unteers at the homeless
coalition remember her
name. Their efforts, she
said, make the holidays
better. "I feel very blessed
that they are here."
In the pantry Monday,
volunteer Terry Campaign
said she has been to most
of the food pantries in
the county at one time or
other.
She wore a cast on
her leg because she was
supposed to have ankle
surgery that day. But when
her appointment got
canceled, she came in.
Campaign wasn't
supposed to put weight


on her ankle, "but I just
had to be here."
Volunteering helps her
cope with a loss in her
life, Campaign said. In
2010, her 46-year-old son
passed away. He was suf-
fering from diabetes and
severe injuries associated
with a car accident.
Campaign said that tak-
ing care of her son "was
my passion, and now this
is my passion."
In addition to the food
pantry, the homeless
coalition also offers hot
meals for breakfast and
dinner seven days a week.
It has an emergency
shelter and provides tran-
sitional housing. It also
has a homeless prevention
program that provides
assistance to homeowners


HOMELESS COALITION FUNDRAISER
The Charlotte County Homeless Coalition Foundation's Mistletoe Ball, "A Christmas in Paris;'is set for 6 p.m. to
10 p.m. Dec. 14 at the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center in Punta Gorda. For sponsorship opportu-
nities and reservations, contact Tina Figliuolo at 941-627-4313, ext. 118; or visit www.cchomelesscoalition.org/

who are struggling
financially and are at risk
of losing their home.
The director of oper-
ations for the homeless
coalition, John Fanning,
said that every year
donations, and the need
for them, surges around
the holiday season.
Fanning compares
the organization's do-
nation-driven hunger
prevention program to "a
father working paycheck


to paycheck to put food
on the table. It's like 'OK,
are we going to be able to
do this?' Then, somehow,
it works out."
However, Fanning said
that they could definitely
use more help, and not
just during the holidays.
The homeless coalition's
programs operate year-
round, and while Fanning
is thankful for the holiday
surge in donations, the
organization also needs


help through the rest of
the year.
"Everybody's hungry
every day of the year,"
Fanning said.

nating, volunteering, seek-
ing help, or getting more

producers expressed concern
about whether Joan Jett was an
appropriate representative for an
agriculturally oriented state like
South Dakota," Jodie Anderson
of the South Dakota Cattlemen's
Association told CNN.
Jett said "tofu-ey" to the
South Dakota float.
"I've decided to switch from
South Dakota to another float
because people's political agen-
das were getting in the way of
what should be a purely enter-
tainment-driven event," Jett said
in a statement this month.
OK, she may not have said
"tofu-ey" but one can only guess
how the "Eat More Chikin" Cows
feel about this matter.

ABC.
"Lady Gaga & the Muppets'

to pretend this isn't disturbing.
Please keep Fozzie Bear away
from the Gaga.
My turkey turned out

tips at www.butterball.com
or by downloading the free
Butterball app.
I forgot garlic, beer and
toilet paper. What's open?
Walmart stores in Port
Charlotte, Punta Gorda, North
Port, Arcadia and Englewood
are open 24 hours.
Winn-Dixie stores in the
region also are open until 4 p.m.
The Pilgrims were known
for their beach parties (maybe
they were). Will it be a good
day for the beach?
Let me answer this in two parts:
For Floridians, it is expected
to be sunny but cool, or even
chilly. Highs are expected only
in the upper 60s or lower 70s.
Overnight lows may dip into
the 40s. Brrr.


For northern visitors, it is
expected to be sunny and
downright balmy with highs
in the upper 60s or lower 70s.
You may not even need a jacket
tonight when temperatures
remain above freezing. Enjoy
your stay here.
Happy Hanukkah! What? It's
Thanksgiving and Hanukkah?
How is this possible?
The calendars happened to
align this year. Many of us will
never see this again. The two
holidays won't match up again
until 2070.
It only seems appropriate
then that we watch/listen to
Adam Sandler's "Thanksgiving
Song" and "Chanukah Song."
And then we can combine
the lyrics: "Thanksgiving is a
special night. Jimmie Walker
used to say, 'Dyn-o-mite!'
That's right... Hanukkah is a
festival of lights. Instead of one
day of presents, we have eight
crazy nights."
Happy Hanukkah and
Happy Thanksgiving.

Since Bob's hospital-

and his subsequent
stint in physical therapy,
Mary visits her husband
virtually every day.
The couple's only child,
Anne Marie, or their
34-year-old grandson,
Michael, drive Mary from
Rotonda to North Port
so she and Bob can have
lunch together, share a
few stories, and simply


enjoy each other's com-

their marriage, they say.
"I can never remember
them not together,"
Michael said. "They
worked together. They
lived together. They went
to the store together. They
did laundry together. If
she was washing dishes,
he was drying. They were
just always together."
Bob remembered his
first date with Mary. It
was 1942, and the two

After about a year of
dating, Bob proposed.
Mary barely let the words
get out of his mouth.

More parking coming to Bayshore


By GARY ROBERTS
STAFF WRITER
CHARLOTTE HARBOR
-With a watchful eye,
Yenni Guerra followed her
three young children as
they climbed up, down
and over the Cracker
cow, the fishing boat and
a huge tree fashioned
at the newly renovated
Bayshore Live Oak Park
playground.
Guerra made sure to
help the littlest, 5-year-
old Kassandra, navigate
the many steps. But she
wasn't too worried about
anyone falling down
because of the rubber
impact surface covering
the ground. Besides, they
are all regular visitors,
and are pretty familiar
with the playground and
its challenges.
"The kids like this
park," Guerra, who lives
in Punta Gorda, said
Wednesday. "I try to
spend as much time as I
can with my kids, and this
is where we come."
She also likes the new
restrooms, built on stilts;
and the picnic pavilion,
where the family enjoys
lunch or seeks shelter
when it rains.
Guerra is not alone.
On any given day,
especially on weekends
and around the holidays,
children and their parents
flock to Bayshore's play-
ground, which received
a $650,000 makeover this
past summer.
"It has become one of
our most popular ameni-
ties," said Tommy Scott,
director of Charlotte
County Community
Services.
In fact, the county
is planning to expand
parking to accommodate
the growing numbers that
come to the playground
and the entire park,
which boasts two fishing
piers and plays host to a
variety of neighborhood
events.
This week, the County
Commission approved
the purchase of two lots
for additional parking, at
a total cost of $26,000.
At Tuesday's regular
commission meeting,
Charlotte Ventola,
speaking as an observer
who is also a mem-
ber of the Charlotte
Harbor Community
Redevelopment Agency
Advisory Committee,
endorsed the decision,
saying the park has
become a destination for
many.
"It's an ideal spot
because we do need extra

I NEWS BRIEF

Library parking lot
renovations
Charlotte County will
begin work Monday on
the parking lot at the
Mid-County Regional
Library, 2050 Forrest Nelson
Blvd., Port Charlotte. This
project is expected to last
approximately three weeks.
Parking lot renovations
will consist of removing
and restoring damaged
pavement and broken
curbing. Areas subject
to poor drainage will be
corrected, followed by
overall sealing and striping
of the parking and driving
surface. Following paving
restoration, landscaping
enhancements will
continue. Library hours
will not be affected, and
nighttime parking lot lights
will stay on as usual. Entry
and exit to the library may
be restricted at times,
and parking areas will be
limited. Construction areas
will be well-marked so
patrons will know where
they may drive and park.


Book-drop bins will be
available throughout the
construction, but will be
in different locations as
the work progresses. Call
941-623-1002 for more info.

Charlotte County is buying two residential lots to expand parking at Bayshore Live Oak Park,
which recently had its playground renovated.


parking in the Bayshore
area, and that faces our
playground," she said.
However she also
raised the question of
whether plans meet
zoning requirements,
saying the properties are
residential but parking
lots are allowed only in
mixed-use areas. But
Shaun Cullinan, a county
planning and zoning
official, said he does not
anticipate any problems
because the parking lot
could qualify either as an
accessory to the park or
as a commercial use.
Ventola also asked what
surface would be used
for the parking lot, and
if trees would have to be
sacrificed. Scott replied
that a shell surface is
planned.
"Our intent is for a shell
parking lot, not asphalt,
and to save as many of
the trees as possible," he
said.
Currently, there are 67
parking stalls, including
nine for the disabled,
spread over five different
parking lots in the 10-acre
linear park. In addition,
there is a shell parking fa-
cility with 15 spaces near
one of the fishing piers.
The two quarter-acre lots
are expected to provide
an additional 20 parking
spaces, according to
officials.

Report: Woman


stabs door,


batters man


ENGLEWOOD It
started as an argument
but turned into some-
thing out of the film
"The Shining," when
an Englewood woman
allegedly stabbed a bed-
room door with a knife
because she couldn't get
inside, according to a
Sarasota County Sheriff's
report.
Ashley Bryn Crouch,
32, allegedly got into
an argument with the
28-year-old male victim
in their home around
6 p.m. Tuesday, a report
states, but the reason
for the argument is
unknown.
Crouch started to hit
the victim in the chest
and neck, the report
states, forcing him to
hide in the bedroom.
Undeterred, Crouch
then allegedly stabbed
the bedroom door with a
knife, leaving it sticking
in the door. Crouch
then punched the door,
causing a crack, the
report states.
The victim then
was able to flee the
residence, but Crouch
reportedly blocked him
by sticking her arm in
his truck door, which
prevented him from
shutting it. The report
states Crouch's 14-year-
old daughter pulled
her out of the way of
the truck, allowing the
victim to shut the door
and leave.
Authorities made
contact with the vic-
tim at his job, and he
showed them a broken
cellphone, which he
tried to record the
attack with, the report
shows. Authorities found
Crouch at her home,
where she was placed
under arrest and trans-
ported to the Sarasota
County Jail. She remains
there without bond.

Man charged with
stealing 1 cigarette
NORTH PORT
- A man recently
released from the
Florida Department of
Corrections after serving
time for committing
burglary landed back
in trouble with the law
when he allegedly stole
a single cigarette from a
home he was walking by,
according to a North Port
Police report.
Nathan Garced, 33, of
the 1400 block of Kensaw
Street, Port Charlotte, was
charged with burglary
and petty theft in con-
nection with the incident,
the report states, after he
allegedly decided on
Jan. 25 to enter the garage
of a home on the 4500
block of Dakota Terrace
in North Port, and take
the cigarette.
The 56-year-old victim
and a neighbor chased
Garced in a vehicle and
eventually caught up to
him at the intersection
of Joyce Avenue and
Dakota Terrace. Garced
offered the men a $5 bill
for the single smoke, but
the victim refused and
demanded that Garced
return to the home
to wait for police, the
report shows. Garced
then allegedly took off,
running into the woods
and losing a sandal in
the process.
Police and K-9 units
responded but couldn't
locate Garced, and it
wasn't until early
morning Wednesday -
11 months after the inci-
dent when authorities
spotted a man who fit
Garced's description
walking on Hillsborough
Boulevard.
Garced was placed

Authorities say $51,000 worth of copper tubing and wiring was stolen from this construction site
on East Venice Avenue, a low-income housing project by the Venice Housing Authority.


Stolen copper latest bad news


for Venice housing project


By GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER
VENICE Roughly
$51,000 in copper pipe
and equipment was
stolen from a low-income
housing project site on
Grove Terrace, the Venice
mayor told City Council
members this week.
The theft took place
more than a month ago
and stalled the project.
Completion of the
low-income, mixed senior
housing project will be de-
layed one to two months,
said Mayor John Holic,
who also sits on the Venice
Housing Authority board.
"They opted not
to fence in the proj-
ect," Holic said of the
contractor.
That was on top of
other bad news, like cost
overruns, and the news
that phase II of the proj-
ect a separate building


that will house low-
income families drew
"bad lottery numbers."
The HUD-funded
project a four-story
Mediterranean style
complex with a mix of
reduced, subsidized
rental units and public
housing for seniors 62
and older relies on
tax credits purchased by
investors that are issued
by the Florida Housing
Finance Corporation.
"There's almost a
nonexistent chance to
get additional funding for
2014," Holic said. "The
next chance for funding
will be in 2015."
Holic said he's already
met with the city manag-
er to see if there's a way
the city can "help out"
regarding the overruns.
Holic said he wasn't
referring to financial
assistance, but city


expertise. That could
include procurement or
legal expertise.
Two of the cost over-
runs had to do with
vented range hoods in
the kitchen, which were
installed as ventlesss"
ranges, then refitted.
Anti-scalding valves
had to be added, too.
Holic said those two
overruns came to around
$100,000.
"We're trying to figure
out on the blueprints
what went wrong.
They're supposed to
know the Florida stat-
utes," Holic said.
"I'm just coming from
the city side to help
because they (Venice
Housing Authority) were
questioning how does
this happen? We're trying
to find out where the
responsibility lies."

out an area food bank this
holiday season.
Sheriff Tom Knight pre-

"All Faiths Food Bank

its commitment to this
community," Knight
said, "and it is gratifying
to be able to help our

Thanksgiving

message same

no matter its roots

Long before your
great-grandmother ever
cooked a Thanksgiving
turkey, the Wampanoag Indi-
an tribe celebrated and gave
thanks to their Creator for a
bountiful harvest.
That is the same tribe, of
course, that famously gathered
with the Pilgrims for what is
often thought of as our first
Thanksgiving. History disputes
that belief and points out that
not only did Native Americans
celebrate a thanksgiving feast
long before that event, but that
other settlers in the new coun-
try we now call the USA had
celebrations each fall to give
thanks for a harvest of food
that would see them through
the winter.
The traditional holiday that
usually draws friends and
family to the dinner table
today began as a combination
celebration of the harvest and a
Puritan religious observance.
Centuries ago, there was
truly reason to give thanks.
Those early pioneers had no
grocery stores and no factories
that provided food or goods.
There was no mass transit, no
automobiles, and horses and
wagons were scarce.
They had no fertilizer or
sprays to help grow crops
and protect them from in-
sects. Their only tools were
man-made.
So, it is easy to imagine,
when the crops were gathered
and there was some indication
they could make it until spring,
the relief had to be exhilarating.
Time to celebrate.
In 2013, most of us don't have
to worry about the harvest. We
have grocery stores, restaurants
and fast-food retreats galore.
And, if only for a day, there will
be bountiful feasts available
through churches and char-
ity groups for anyone who is
hungry.
So, today we give thanks.
We can block out all the
problems with the Affordable
Care Act. For at least a day
we can not fret over what is
happening in the Middle East
- with an exception for those
who may have family or loved
ones living or serving in the
military there.
Even if we are out of work,
for this one day we can enjoy
family, perhaps a meal and
maybe even some football on
television, or a game of touch
football in the backyard with
the kids.
We hope that everyone can
find something today for which
to give thanks. Whether it is
a meal, a friend, good health,
being with family, a new job, an
old job or the delight of watch-
ing massive inflatables make
their way down city streets in
person or on TV there are
reasons to give thanks today.
We also wish that the reasons
we have to smile today can be
carried over throughout the
holiday season and beyond.
It is an oft-repeated wish
that we could all live our lives
every day as most of us do on
Thanksgiving. The idea is that
people with that much love in
their hearts can make a huge
difference in the lives of others
if they could continue to find
that selflessness and that thrill of
giving every day of the year.
That may be too much to
expect, and is certainly a lot to ask.
But as we think back to the
centuries-old celebrations by
Native American tribes, perhaps
there is a lesson in their tradi-
tions we can take to heart today.
They had no job to go to every
day just the challenge of
staying alive and feeding them-
selves. They had no Black Friday
bargains to wake up early for.
They didn't even have the luxury
of health care.


But they were thankful. And
we should be too.

I THE EDITOR

Will was wrong
in JFK article

Editor:
George Will should stick to
writing about baseball. His
take on JFK and attempts to
paint him as a conservative
are wrong. Truth is his private
desire to end Vietnam is
historically documented. The
mystery "interviewer" of RFK
is questionable at best as no
name is mentioned. I recall
vividly RFK campaigning
against the war prior to his
assassination, as did Ted
Kennedy then and years later!
He was attempting, as
Will's article states, to cut
personal and corporate taxes.
Looks to me that he meant all
Americans, not just the priv-
ileged minority. Conservative
economics may have worked
better in JFK's time, and
Will should know that the
economy today is light years
different than in 1963!
His political tendencies are
described in his book "Profiles
in Courage."
"If by a 'liberal' they mean
someone who looks ahead
and not behind, someone
who cares about the welfare of
the people, their health, their
housing, their schools, their
jobs, their civil liberties -
someone who believes we can
break through the stalemate
and suspicion that grip us in
our policies abroad, if that is
what they mean by 'liberal'
then I'm proud to say I'm a
'Liberal.'"
Count me there also.

Reasons to not
feast on turkey

Editor:
President Obama will get
a break from "Obamacare"
when he pardons the tradi-
tional Thanksgiving turkey.
Each of us can also set aside
our cares by pardoning a
turkey and choosing a non-
violent Thanksgiving obser-
vance one that gives thanks
for our good fortune, health,
and happiness with a life-af-
firming, cruelty-free feast of
vegetables, fruits and grains.
And here are more terrific
reasons:

You won't spend a sleep-

Wild animals don't

Editor:
The Cole Bros. Circus,
partnering with the Charlotte
County Homeless Coalition
was good for the community.
Hopefully, in the not too
distant future, circuses will
stop using wild animals for
entertainment purposes. (The
UK government ban on wild
animals in circuses will take
effect in 2015.)
No more elephants, camels,

Letter writer
missed the facts
Editor:
While reading letters to the
editor in Sunday's edition of
the Sun, I'm assuming many
of the residents of Charlotte
County get their news from
Fox.
One letter had so many
"facts" that have been proven
to be lies. The title of this
letter was "Ashamed about
choice of Obama." Have your


readers lost their curiosity?
As soon as I receive an email
or hear something on TV that
doesn't quite meet the smell
test, I start searching for the
facts. Either people are too
lazy to do this or they don't
know how.
The author of this partic-
ular letter failed to check his
facts.
While I was searching
for the proper term for the
version of the Gettysburg
Address President Obama
was given, I found dozens
of articles about President
Obama leaving out "under
God" in the Gettysburg
Address. However, I already
knew that President Obama
was given the "Nicolay
Version" which omits the
words "under God." Many of
the other examples in this
person's letter to the editor
have also been debunked and
had failed the smell test.
If you only get your news
from Fox, at least use Google
to check your facts before
writing your letter to the
editor spewing more lies. We
all know the Sun does not fact
check letters. This page is an
"opinion" page. So you can
write all the lies you want to
write, as long as it's your opin-
ion. But, why look ignorant?
Check your own facts.

Local restaurant
deserves praise


Editor:
We enjoy your articles
recommending great places
to visit and dine.
We try to keep our
spending local and, unless
I missed something in
the Sun, you have over-
looked one of the best
family-owned eating estab-
lishments in Port Charlotte;
Jimmy's. We have been
going there for 17 years; first
as snowbirds and now as
permanent residents.
They have been here for
29 years; family owned and
need very little advertising.
Their wonderful cuisine is
spread mostly by word of
mouth. I realize that ad-
vertising via the newsprint
is your bread and butter,
but occasionally there is an
exception; so good, no need!
Your staff might want to
spend some time finding out
how they survived through
good and hard times. I'm
sure it wasn't easy other
than for their product; good
drinks, good food, with great
staff.
"Jimmy" and his beau-
tiful wife Christina were
the tenders until recently
when their children started
to manage the enterprise.
Jimmy is still there, but
Christina now enjoys what
grandmas do; taking care of
their grandchildren.
You should stop by and
find out more about this
local family that has the best
food in town.

Dumb versus dumber in education standards debate


ast week, Arne Dun-
can, the secretary of
education, picked
just the right words to
make an increasingly hot
controversy even hotter.
Like many education
officials in both parties,
Duncan is a defender of
the Common Core ini-
tiative to create uniform
academic standards for
K-12 education in all
states. Resistance to it, he
asserted, comes mainly
from "white suburban
moms" who don't take
kindly to hearing that
their children aren't
meeting newly raised
standards.
Duncan had to back-
track from the comment,
of course, which also
happens to be clearly
false. Students aren't yet
being tested to determine
whether they meet the
standards, so poor test
results couldn't be gen-
erating a backlash. The
contempt that the remark
revealed is real enough,
though. Proponents of
the Common Core tend


Ramesh Ponnuru
Bloomberg News



to view its critics as an
ignorant mob. Support
for it is, in certain circles,
a sign of one's seriousness
about education reform.
Yet the reform strategy
it represents hasn't been
thought through well,
and it seems unlikely to
work. The debate that
surrounds it is an extend-
ed exercise in missing the
point.
The initiative's critics
advance an angry pop-
ulism that is frequently
misinformed. One
can certainly imagine
Duncan's frustration at
having to rebut Glenn
Beck's claim that the
standards are leading
to mandatory iris scans
for schoolkids. Even
less fantastic attacks on
the standards are often
overwrought. Take the
complaint that they
downgrade the study


of literature in favor of
"informational texts."
Actually, they call for
a split between fiction
and nonfiction across
the curriculum. The split
starts at 50/50 in elemen-
tary school and rises to
70 percent informational,
30 percent fictional by
the end of high school.
English class, in other
words, can be entirely
devoted to literature.
But supporters of the
Common Core have their
own misleading claims.
They say that its adoption
by states has been totally
voluntary, even though
state governments had
a better shot at getting a
share of federal money
and relief from some
regulations if they signed
up for it. Supporters also
say that the initiative isn't
a common curriculum,
as though there were a
hard and fast distinction
between requiring all
students to know specific
things at a set time and
requiring they be taught
them in a certain order.


What these arguments
obscure is that the case
for having a "common
core" in the first place
is weak. High standards
may be valuable, but
why do they have to
be common? It isn't
as though different
state standards are a
major problem in U.S.
education. There's more
variation in achieve-
ment within states than
between them. Common
standards may make life
a bit easier for students
who move across state
lines, but they also mean
that we lose a chance for
states to experiment.
Common Core
supporters sometimes
suggest that with a
single set of standards,
states could determine if
they're doing worse than
their neighbors, and that
this knowledge will make
them eager to reform
their schools. They said
something similar about
the No Child Left Behind
Act that Congress passed
a decade ago: Parents


would learn that schools
were failing to make
their kids "proficient" in
English and math and
would demand reform.
It didn't work out
that way. Many people
got mad when the law
labeled their schools
failures. State and local
officials responded by
setting a lower bar for
proficiency. In mak-
ing his remark about
white suburban moms,
Duncan indicated that he
thinks parents will have
the same reaction this
time. In which case, what
good will the Common
Core do?
For that matter, how
common will that core
really be? Classroom
practice doesn't always
reflect the standards
written in a state's official
documents. That's one
reason the rigor of
state standards doesn't
correlate with student
achievement. But ensur-
ing uniformity in practice
would require the kind
of heavy-handed central


governing body that sup-
porters of the Common
Core strenuously deny
they want.
The real problem with
the Common Core is
not that it represents Big
Brother in the classroom,
but that it seems unlikely
to do much to increase
the amount of learning
that students do. Perhaps
that's because there's not
much that can be done
on the national level to
make K-12 schooling
better.
A lot of education
reformers find it hard to
admit that. And so the
debate over the Common
Core is a dismal cycle of
elite disdain and pop-
ulist outrage, each side
feeding the other's worst
impulses.

The language is clear, but opponents' motive is smoky


according to a
recent Quinnip-
iac poll, Florid-
ians support legalizing
marijuana for medicinal
purposes by a whopping
82-16 margin, crossing
all party lines. Frustrated
by decades of inaction by
the Florida Legislature,
citizens have taken it into
their own hands to put
the issue directly before
voters through a citizens'
initiative to amend the
Florida Constitution.
The question should
be whether Florida
wants to join 20 other
states and the District
of Columbia in making
medical marijuana
available to its residents
suffering from debilitat-
ing illnesses.
Instead, those in
Florida leadership
positions in both the
legislative and executive
branches are busy trying
to prevent the issue from
making it to the ballot
by filing briefs before the
Florida Supreme Court.
Their goal is to have
the Medical Marijuana
Citizens Initiative
removed from ballot
consideration even if
the necessary 684,000
signatures are gathered.
Over the past two
decades, the Legislature
has opposed addressing
any form of legalization
of marijuana; they
have made a concerted
effort to limit citizens'


initiatives, and they
have used legislatively
proposed constitutional
amendments to drive
voter turnout.
Florida was so serious
about seeking medical
cures that a 2003 special
session was called for
the purpose of award-
ing Scripps Research
Institute $310 million of
federal stimulus funds to
lure the research facility
to Florida.
We also take pain
medication addiction
very seriously in Florida,
establishing some of
the most stringent
regulations to curb the
abuse of prescription
drugs through legislation
intended to stop the pro-
liferation of "pill mills."
Yet, legislative leaders
refuse to consider the
use of medical marijuana
despite the growing body
of medical evidence as
to its beneficial uses.
Among those uses,
medical marijuana has
been touted as successful
for fighting nausea,
increasing appetite for
those under radiation


treatment for cancer, and
treating muscle tightness
for those with multiple
sclerosis.
Also in play is the
Legislature's disdain
of citizens' rights to
direct democracy, when
elected officials refuse
to listen to the public
will through represen-
tative democracy. This
was apparent in 2002,
2004, and 2006, when
the Florida Legislature
proposed three consti-
tutional amendments
making it more difficult
for citizens to use the
initiative process to
amend their constitu-
tion. It also raised the
threshold for passage of
all constitutional amend-
ments to 60 percent.
There were a plethora of
statutory changes as well
to try to curb those pesky
attempts by citizens.
Ironically, the
Legislature, not citizens,
have placed the ma-
jority of constitutional
amendments on the
ballot. From 1978 to
2012, the Legislature was
responsible for 77 ballot
measures compared to
28 for all citizen groups
combined. In the 2012
election, the Legislature
proposed all 11 ballot
amendments.
And of course there
are the political rami-
fications. The Florida
attorney general, joined
by the Florida Senate


president and the speak-
er of the Florida House, is
challenging the wording
of the proposed marijua-
na amendment, claiming
that the ballot summary
and title are misleading.
I trust that Floridians
are smart enough to
understand that this
amendment would allow
doctors to prescribe
marijuana for medicinal
purposes. Further, the
Legislature retains the
ability to regulate its use
through statutory means.
Cynically, one might
question legislators'
sincerity, as their own
proposed amendments
have been much more
confusing to voters. Take,
for example, this title on
the 2012 ballot: "Property
Tax Limitations; Property
Value Decline; Reduction
for Nonhomestead
Assessment Increases;
Delay of Scheduled
Repeal." Clear as mud.
The title that is be-
ing disputed? "Use of
Marijuana for Certain
Medical Conditions."


An accusation fre-
quently made is that
well-known attorney
John Morgan, who is
leading this effort to
legalize marijuana for
medical purposes, is a
close friend and em-
ployer of gubernatorial
candidate Charlie Crist
and that his motivation is
to help turn out the vote.
But while medical mar-
ijuana may play a factor
in turnout, the recent
poll shows that support
crosses all party lines.
In control for the last
18 years, Republicans
have placed tax relief
and social issues such
as abortion, religious
freedom and gambling
on the ballot in an effort
to turn out their own
base. Not a bad strategy.
To the official talking
points of Republican
leaders in the executive
and legislative branches
that they are challenging
the language to protect
voters from being misled,
I say baloney.
The legislative session


starts in March, where
legislators can easily
rewrite language to
remove any perceived
confusion. They also
have the ability to legal-
ize medical marijuana
by statute, making the
constitutional amend-
ment unnecessary. But
don't hold your breath.
Legislators' failure to
act is a clear indication
they don't want it to pass
despite overwhelming
public support.
Missing in all this
political gamesmanship
is the willingness to give
relief, inexpensively
and with very little risk,
to those suffering with
debilitating illness.
So stop the posturing
and lead on this issue or
just get out of the way
and let the people do it.

Welcome to Ellis Island


SUN PHOTOS BY MONICA AMAYA
Third-graders at Lamarque Elementary School learned about
Ellis Island on Monday and how different life was for some
immigrants when they moved to the U.S. at the beginning of
the last century. Students re-enacted the boat trip and the

Amazon vs. brick and mortar

Holiday showdown pulls out consumer deals on both sides


By MAE ANDERSON
and ANNE D'INNOCENZIO
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITERS
NEW YORK-This
holiday season, it's
Amazon vs. everyone
else.
The online giant has
attracted customers
from the likes of
Walmart and Best Buy
with low prices and
convenient shipping.
Now, stores are fight-
ing back and going
head-to-head with
Amazon as the contest
for customers heats
up during the busiest
shopping period of the
year.
Stores are doing


things like matching
the lower prices on
Amazon.com and
offering the same
discounts in stores
as on their websites.
For its part, Amazon
is giving customers
the option to pick
up items at physical
locations and adding
Sunday delivery.
The two sides are
dueling over shoppers
like Jessica Danielle,
a speechwriter who
plans to do the bulk of
her Christmas shop-
ping on Amazon. 'All
the time spent going
to brick-and-mortar
stores, is it worth
my time?" asked


Danielle, 31, who lives
in Washington, D.C. "I
don't think so."
There's a lot at stake
for both sides. Amazon
has built a following,
but wants to grow
its business globally.
Meanwhile, brick-and-
mortar retailers strug-
gle to keep shoppers
from using their stores
as showrooms to test
out and try on items
before buying them
cheaper on Amazon.
The holiday season
ups the ante. Both
online and brick-and-
mortar retailers can
make up to

Tongue control

gives paralyzed

mobility

By LAURAN NEERGAARD
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
WASHINGTON -An experimental
device is letting paralyzed people drive
wheelchairs simply by flicking their
tongue in the right direction.
Key to this wireless system: Users get
their tongue pierced with a magnetic
stud that resembles jewelry and acts
like a joystick, in hopes of offering them
more mobility and independence.
Researchers reported Wednesday that
11 people paralyzed from the neck down

obstacle course full of twists and turns,
and to operate a computer, too.

Former CIA chief of
counterintelligence,
Hathaway, dies
(Washington Post) -
Gardner R. Hathaway,
a former CIA chief of
counterintelligence whose
nearly four-decade career
with the agency took him
to Cold War focal points
ranging from Berlin to
Moscow and placed him
at the center of many
espionage episodes, died
Nov. 20 at the Vitas hospice
in Vienna, Va. He was 88.
The cause was compli-
cations from cancer, said
his wife, Karin Hathaway.
Taciturn but courtly,
"Gus" Hathaway was an
undercover officer known
for his mastery of espio-
nage tradecraft and his
aggressive efforts to best
the Soviet KGB.
"Gus was a risk-taker,"
said Jack Downing, a
former CIA deputy director
of operations who served
with Hathaway
One celebrated incident
in Hathaway's career took
place soon after he arrived
in Moscow as the CIA
station chief in 1977. When
a fire broke out on the U.S.
embassy's eighth floor,
Hathaway barred arriving
firefighters from entering
the CIA station located
the floor below the blaze.
He suspected some of
the firemen were KGB
agents, and he refused to
evacuate until the fire was
contained.
Hathaway was awarded
the prestigious Intelligence
Star for his actions, with a
citation noting that he had
protected sensitive areas
from penetration "at great
personal risk."

Chico Hamilton,
'cool jazz' musician,
dies at 92
(Washington Post)
- Chico Hamilton, a
drummer who helped
define the "cool" West
Coast approach to jazz
in the 1950s and whose
innovative groups echoed
the delicate intimacy of
chamber music, died
Nov. 25 at his home in
New York City He was 92.
His publicist, April
Thibeault, confirmed the
death but did not know
the cause.
Beginning in the 1940s,
Hamilton brought a sub-
tle, understated approach
to jazz drumming that
remained his signature
style for seven decades.
After working with sing-
ers Billy Eckstine and Lena
Home, Hamilton was the
drummer in the celebrat-
ed "pianoless" quartet led
by baritone saxophonist
Gerry Mulligan and
trumpeter Chet Baker that
helped define the West
Coast "cool jazz" sound of
the early 1950s.

CBS: Lara Logan,
producer ordered
to take leave
NEWYORK(AP) -CBS
ordered "60 Minutes"
correspondent Lara
Logan and her producer
to take a leave of absence
Tuesday following a
critical internal review
of their handling of the
show's October story on
the Benghazi raid, based
on a report on a supposed
witness whose story can't
be verified.
The review, by CBS News
executive Al Ortiz and
obtained by The Associated
Press, said the "60 Minutes"
team should have done a
better job vetting the story
that featured a security
contractor who said he was


at the U.S. mission in Libya
the night it was attacked
last year.
Questions were quickly
raised about whether the
man was lying some-
thing "60 Minutes" should
have better investigated
before airing the story, the
report said.


Ethanol's rise can mean loss of hunting lands


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP)
- Pheasants once drew
hundreds of weekend
hunters to Fairbury, Neb.,
each fall, filling the 45
rooms at Randy Brown's
Capri Motel with sports-
men eager to bag their
limits.
But times have changed.
The native grasslands and


milo crops that used to
dot surrounding Jefferson
County have been
overtaken by corn and soy
crops. Neither provides the
shelter that wildlife once
enjoyed. This year's opener
drew just two rooms of
out-of-state hunters to the
Capri, one of many busi-
nesses indirectly affected


as farmers move to meet
the nation's demand for
biofuel.
"We don't have the
habitat we had 20 years
ago," said Brown, owner
of the motel near the
Nebraska-Kansas border.
"Everything's against the
pheasants right now."
The U.S. Conservation


Reserve Program, which
pays landowners not to
farm their property, has
been a boon to wildlife.
Since its creation in 1985,
it has boosted populations
of ducks, ring-necked
pheasants, prairie chick-
ens, Columbian sharp-
tailed grouse and other
wildlife bv providing areas


where they can feed and
reproduce. The birds bring
money.
Pheasant hunting has
long been a pastime in the
region. Its reputation for
stocked fields has made it
a national draw, credited
with pulling $170 million
into the South Dakota's
economy last vear.

BRAINTREE, Mass.

DNA testing to identify

after their pets.


which just floored us,"
said Barbara Kansky, who
manages the 398-unit
condo development in
the town of Braintree
that introduced DNA
monitoring in July.
Polite reminders,
letters and notices previ-
ously failed to persuade
errant pet owners to
observe condo rules
requiring them to clean
up after their animals,
Kansky said. There were
problems even after
residents reported seeing
others failing to pick up
their dog's messes.
"We would call or send
a letter and that dog
owner would say: 'Prove
it,'" Kansky said.
So she searched online
and found Knoxville,
Tenn.-based BioPetVet
Lab, which specializes
in testing DNA from dog
poop to identify of-
fending animals. BioPet
has beefed up its staff
with more scientists to
meet demand for what
Eric Mayer, director of
business development,
calls "a booming, grow-
ing, new product," and
has started distributing
throughout the U.S., and
into Canada, Israel and
Singapore in the past two
years.
The service, branded
PooPrints, is very simple,
Mayer said.
The first step is to
register the DNA of all
dogs in the community
by collecting samples of
their cheek cells using
a pair of sterile swabs,
Mayer said in an email.
The second is to collect a
sample of feces and send
it to the lab for matching.
An attorney advised
Kansky that condo
trustees could enforce
existing condo rules by
requiring all dog owners
to submit their animals
for collection of DNA
samples. Dog owners
paid a one-time fee of
$59.95 for the initial DNA
testing for the database.
Subsequent lab tests
of dog droppings that
end up identifying the
offending animal result
in a $50 testing fee plus a
$100 fine.
So far, one resident dog
has been identified as an
offender.
Kerry Weidner, a pet
owner in Devon Wood,
says the service has
transformed life at the
sprawling complex.
"We used to see dog
poop almost every other
day. You had to worry
about where you walk
on the grass because
there was dog poop, a
lot of different places,"
Weidner said. "Now, you
don't really have to worry
about dog poop. You can
walk where you want, the
grass is now ours again,
we don't have to worry
about it, and that's just a
great thing."
Now, Kansky said,
residents want her to
solve another problem.
"We've now had people
say: 'Well, now can we
get them to stop having
their dogs lift their legs
on the shrubs?'" Kansky
said, smiling. "That's a
little more difficult and
we are not going to tackle
that."

St. Augustine attraction zips over alligators


ST. AUGUSTINE (AP)
- I was slowly crossing
a swinging log bridge
when I paused, sensing
the alligator 12 feet
below was staring at me.
The water around the
8-foot gator's enormous
body began rippling
rapidly. A second later,
Big Al let out a deep
bellow, as if to say, "If you
fall, you're my lunch."
I was grateful to be
strapped in a harness.
The bridge was part
of a 49-station obstacle
course that includes
10 zip lines at the St.
Augustine Alligator Farm.
It takes visitors over
crocodiles, lemurs, giant
tortoises, vultures and, of
course, lots of alligators.
"It's just a totally
different perspective. You
can go to any zoo in the
world and look at them
through the glass, but
you can't go anywhere


and look at them over the
top of the enclosures like
you can here," said Scott
Brown, who designed
and now manages the
Crocodile Crossing at the
zoo.
The alligator farm is
fascinating enough on
foot. At 120 years old, it's
one of Florida's oldest
tourist attractions and
it is the only zoo in the
world that displays all 23
crocodilian species, in-
cluding the nearly extinct
Philippine crocodile.
From above, it's even
more amazing. I paused
on a rope bridge to watch
enormous African vul-
tures rip apart a carcass,
zipped over a lagoon
with dozens of alligators,
watched lemurs scram-
bling around their cage
below me and saw the
surprised faces of the
guests on the ground as I
flew over their heads.


And it's a good
workout. I've zip-
lined through the
Berkshire Mountains
in Massachusetts and
found this to be a bigger
challenge. The zip lines
in the mountains might
be longer and faster, but
the obstacles at the St.
Augustine zoo make you
work harder.
I had to climb rope
ladders, traverse a high
wire and struggle to
maintain balance on
bridges that use swinging
ladders, swinging logs
and boards that are
placed so far apart they
sometimes require a leap
instead of a step. Even
with temperatures in the
low 70s I worked up a
good sweat.
Plus, you don't find
alligators and crocodiles
in the mountains of the
Northeast.
"It's just almost

impossible to match
what they have in other
parts of the country, but
what we lack in distance
and speed we make
up for in the scenery,"
Brown said. "You have to


go through the obstacles
to get to the zip-line. The
zip-line is your reward
for your hard work of
the obstacles. There's
a reason they call it a
challenge course. It is


challenging."
The longest zip-line on
the course is 300 feet, or
the length of a football
field. There are some
very fast lines, requiring
some quick breaking.

dead following a crash in
southwest Florida.
Lee County Sheriff's
deputies say weather may
have played a role when
a Chevrolet pickup truck
hit a Honda at an intersec-

Tuesday. The crash caused
the Honda to spin and

The driver and the
passenger in the car were
killed. The driver of the
truck was taken to the

adult daughter
WINTER HAVEN
(AP) -Authorities say a
central Florida woman
has fatally shot her adult
daughter in an apparent
accident.
Winter Haven police
say 52-year-old Adele
Bing was charged with
second-degree murder
and child abuse Tuesday.
Police say Bing had just
had a heated argument
with her boyfriend before
Monday night's shooting.
When Bing heard a
knock at her door, she
armed herself with a
baseball bat and a hand-
gun. The gun fired as Bing
was opening the door,
hitting her daughter,
25-year-old Ruby Bing,
in the chest. She died
at the scene. Ruby Bing
had been holding her
own infant when she was
hit, but the child wasn't
injured.

Winn-Dixie offers quadruple fuelperks [N7-iir ,


JACKSONVILLE-
Winn-Dixie is helping
its customers save
money as the holiday
shopping season gets
underway. Today
(Thanksgiving Day) and
Friday only, customers
can earn up to four
times the amount of
fuelperks! rewards. This
means quadruple the
amount of savings for
customers. For every
$50 they spend on select
gift cards when they use
their Winn-Dixie Reward
Card, they will receive
20 cents off per gallon
of gas.
"Saving money is
important to everyone
during the holidays,
and this gives custom-
ers the opportunity to
purchase a thoughtful
gift while saving money
in our stores and at
the gas pump," said
Mary Kellmanson,
Winn-Dixie's senior vice
president of marketing.
"Everybody knows gift
cards make popular
gifts. Savvy shoppers
also buy gift cards and
use them for their holi-
day shopping on Black
Friday or to keep on
hand for gift shopping
throughout the year."
Kellmanson noted
that a customer could
spend $200 on gift cards
and earn 80 cents per
gallon savings at the
pump, which could
equal as much as $16 off
a fill-up.
Customers can
choose from a huge
selection of gift
cards, including Best
Buy, Lowe's Home
Improvement, Toys R
Us, Applebee's, Bass
Pro Shops and more.
There's no limit to how
much customers can
save. This offer is not
valid on Visa, American
Express, MasterCard
or Winn-Dixie gift card
purchases. Certain
terms and conditions
apply, see store for
details.
Additionally, from
Nov. 30 to Dec. 24,
Winn-Dixie is offering
customers double
fuelperks! rewards
when they purchase
these select gift cards
with their Winn-Dixie
Reward Card. Instead
of just earning 5 cents
per gallon for every $50
they spend on gift cards,
customers will receive
10 cents off per gallon
of gas.
Winn-Dixie's everyday

40 percent of their annu-
al revenue in November
and December. And this
year, they're competing
for the growing number
of shoppers who're as
comfortable buying
online as in stores.
Holiday sales are ex-
pected to rise 3.9 percent
to $602.1 billion, accord-
ing to The National Retail
Federation. Of that,
about $78.7 billion is
expected to be online, up
15 percent from last year,
according to Forrester
Research.
Here's how the fight is
playing out:

Price war
One of Amazon's
biggest advantages is its
low prices. It can charge
less for everything from
TVs to T-shirts because
it doesn't have the high
costs of running physical
locations.
Last year, some retail-
ers offered to match the
lower prices that cus-
tomers find on websites
like Amazon during the
holiday season. And this
year, more have made
this a policy heading
into the holiday season.
Best Buy even is offering
to refund the difference

saving on gas has freed
up a bit more for other
purchases.
And history shows that
when gas prices drop,
consumers become more
likely to splurge on din-
ners out. Impulse buys
at the mall seem like less
of a stretch. More people
buy a gas-station gift
card after fueling up.
Many retail analysts
have forecast a ho-hum
sales gain of around
2 percent this year; oth-
ers predict an increase
of up to 3.9 percent.

purchase something up
until Christmas Eve. The
strategy could eat into
profits, but retailers hope
there will be an increase
in sales.
Staples is among
retailers also offering the
same discounts online
and in stores during big
shopping days like the
holiday known also as
Black Friday. "We want
customers to be able
to shop however they
want and whenever
they want," said Alison
Corcoran, Staples senior
vice president.

Speedy delivery
Stores had long seen
their physical locations
as an albatross, but
now, a growing number
are using them to their
advantage.
"Everybody was telling
me ... 'these stores, that's
really a liability that
you have,'" said Hubert
Joly, Best Buy's CEO.
'Absolutely not. It's an
asset that you have 1,000
warehouses strategically
located close to the
customers."
Best Buy is among
the retailers using their
locations as distribution
hubs from which they
can ship goods that cus-
tomers' order directly to
their homes. Walmart, for
one, said items ordered

there've been no lines,

Fleisher, whose plan was
to fly to Pittsburgh.
"Our flight is still
on time, but we are
checking the app every
couple minutes," she
said. "We are nervous,
as we are traveling with
two 1-year-olds, and any
extra time on a plane
would be horrible."

pected to drop around

of West Virginia and

than ever before.

delivered in two days
or less quicker than
having items shipped

But Amazon.com Inc.
is widening its distri-
bution network to offer
speedier delivery, too.
The online retailer added
8 million square feet
of distribution centers
and hired 70,000 people
to work in them. It also
added 1,382 robots to its
line to help get packages
out the door. And for
even faster service this
holiday, Amazon part-
nered with the U.S. Post

packages on Sunday.

"Every little thing

The research, reported

allowed use of the device

ries. Larger studies in
real-world conditions
are required before the
device ever could be
sold. And the tongue
piercing may be a turn-
off for some potential
users, the researchers
acknowledge.
But the work is
attracting attention
from specialists who say
there's a big need for
more assistive technolo-
gies so they can custom-
ize care for the severely
disabled.

And options that allow
customers to order and
pay online and then pick
items up at stores are
popular. That led Renada
Skannal, 27, to order pro-
tective gear her nephew
could wear when riding
a bike her mother is buy-
ing him as a Christmas

But that was a tiny

Amazon has started of-
fering pickups at physical
locations. Last year, it
introduced lockers in 10
cities for customers to
pick up items in stores
like 7-Eleven and Rite
Aid. But some compet-
itors, including Staples
and RadioShack, which
initially welcomed the
lockers, have taken them
out.
Who wins?
Ultimately, experts say
the battle is over custom-
er service. StellaService,
which tracks customer
service, found between
August and October
the time to talk to a
live agent on Amazon
customer service was
one minute, compared
with two minutes-plus at
Best Buy and six minutes
at Staples.
"When it comes to cus-
tomer support, Amazon
... sets the standard for
everyone else," said Jordy
Leiser, StellaService's
CEO.
But brick-and-mortar
retailers are catching up
and in some cases, sur-
passing Amazon by some
measures by working on
their customer service.
For instance, Amazon
resolved the issue when
a customer called 86 per-
cent of the time between
August and October,
according to StellaService.
Best Buy had a 97 percent
success rate.

hours because of the
weather, according to the
website.
The Philadelphia
area was under a flood
watch, with 2 to 3 inches
of rain forecast before
falling temperatures turn
precipitation to snow.
Roads there were
snarled. A deadly
multivehicle crash that
authorities said hap-
pened when a car hit
standing water and spun
out of control closed the
westbound lanes of the
Schuylkill Expressway for
a while, and the east-
bound lanes were shut
down for several hours
because of flooding.

Riccadonna estimates
that breaking $3 gas
would lead the average
shopper to spend $47
more over the holidays.
That figure would
translate into $15 billion
worth of extra shopping
- possibly the difference
between lukewarm and
red-hot sales growth.
Prices briefly dipped
below $3 in five states
- Arkansas, Kansas,
Missouri, Oklahoma and
Texas before rising
above that threshold
again.
Some service stations
have been charging less
than $3 around Tucson,
Ariz., where Seth Nilson,
a high school teacher,
and his wife, Cristi, are
enjoying more time at
restaurants.

Ripples of Iran nuke deal felt from Syrian war to Saudi palaces


WORLD NEWS


WIRE Page 7


DUBAI, United Arab
Emirates (Bloomberg) -
After news of the Iranian
nuclear deal emerged,
Syria quickly welcomed
it as a triumph for its ally
Iran and a setback for
opponents led by Saudi
Arabia.
Information Minister
Omran al-Zoubi, whose
government is backed by
Iran in a civil war with
rebels funded by Saudi
Arabia, said that the pact
marked a victory for
diplomacy over "threats,
ultimatums, challenges
and wars." Hours after
world powers and Iran
shook hands on a pre-
dawn agreement on
Nov. 24, Syria's Foreign
Ministry hailed "Iran's
role in the stability and
security of the region."
The agreement follows
the U.S. decision two
months earlier to pull
back from using force
against President Bashar
Assad, angering its Gulf
allies. With Saudi Arabia
pledging to respond by
broadening its support for
rebels, and Iran now freed
from some of the pressure
of sanctions, there's con-
cern the rivals may step
up their proxy war in Syria
where fighting has already
killed more than 100,000
people in 2 years.

outside Tehran, Iran.
"Up to now Iran was
perceived as a spoiler,"
said Sami Nader, a
professor of international
relations at Beirut's St.
Joseph University. "Now
it will have to choose
between acting as a
partner, which means
a less aggressive role in
the Middle East, or it
could decide it can have
a free hand in Syria in
exchange for compro-
mising on its nuclear
program."
How Iran behaves
depends on how it wants
to "position itself on the
international scene," said
Nader. Saudi Arabia, a

news agency reported.
The conflict in Syria
began in March 2011 with
peaceful protests, part of
a series of uprisings that
swept rulers of Tunisia,
Egypt, Yemen and Libya
from power. The demon-
strations descended into
civil war, a battle that drew
in fighters from across the
country's borders.
Shiite guerrillas
belonging to Iraq's Abu
Fadl al-Abbas Brigade
and Hezbollah bolstered
Assad's forces, and
al-Qaida-linked militants
control parts of Syria's
north. While Saudi Arabia
has supported the Free

West's preferred force,

Saudis "consider that the
Iranians won in Lebanon,
in Iraq and, if they win in
Syria, Riyadh will be next,"
he said.
Syria is at the epicenter
of a regional struggle
pitting Saudi Arabia,
the Gulf's leading Sunni
power, against Shiite Iran
and its proxies such as
Lebanon's Hezbollah.
Violence has flared
elsewhere. Saudi troops
in March 2011 helped
crush a revolt by Shiites
in neighboring Bahrain,
where many Saudi
Shiites have cultural and
family ties. There has
also been Shiite-Sunni


money from Islamists.
The violence has spilled
into Syria's neighbors,
including Iraq, where
bomb attacks have killed
thousands this year, and
Lebanon, where anti- and
pro-Assad groups have
clashed. The United
Nations has called a peace
conference for Jan. 22 in
the search for a negotiated
settlement.
The weekend deal in
Geneva adds a new un-
predictable element to the
war, said Salman Shaikh,
director of the Brookings
Institution's Doha Center
in Qatar.
"Iranian officials may
well feel emboldened, and
they may well have more


cash with which to engage
in this regional proxy
conflict," Shaikh said
by phone. "They would
probably be right in think-
ing the U.S. and other
world powers may not be
interested in pushing back
on them."


British economic

growth accelerates


LONDON (Bloomberg)
- Britain's economic
recovery accelerated
in the second quarter
as investment and
housebuilding helped to
offset the biggest drop in
exports in more than two
years.
Gross domestic prod-
uct increased 0.8 percent,
matching an initial
estimate, the Office for
National Statistics said
in London Wednesday.
Business investment rose
1.4 percent, while exports
dropped 2.4 percent, with
net trade knocking
0.9 percentage point
from GDP.
The Bank of England
raised its growth fore-
casts this month and
brought forward the
expected timing for un-
employment to reach the
7 percent threshold for
policy makers to consider
raising the key interest
rate. Governor Mark
Carney Tuesday affirmed
officials' guidance that
they won't rush to raise
rates while there's still
slack in the economy.
"The momentum in
growth will continue for
a while longer but we're
less convinced we'll see
these rates of growth
continue through to next
year as much depends on
the outlook for business
investment," said Philip
Shaw, an economist at
Investec Securities in
London. "The BOE's
emphasis for the time
being will be that there
isn't going to be an
interest-rate hike in the
near future."
Growth is primarily
being driven by domestic
factors as the euro area,
Britain's biggest trading
partner, struggles to
recover. The increase
in business investment
helped to lift gross fixed
capital formation by
1.4 percent in the third
quarter, and it added
1.1 percentage points to
GDP.
Within business invest-
ment, the ONS said there
were increases in trans-
portation equipment and
new buildings including
construction of homes.
A revival in property
demand, in part fueled by
a government program, is
helping to boost housing
activity. Investment in
private-sector dwellings


jumped 5.9 percent in
three months through
September, the most in
two years, the ONS said
Wednesday.

Stocks climb after HP




advances on earnings


NEWYORK (AP)-
Technology companies
lifted the stock market
Wednesday, keeping major
indexes at record levels.
Hewlett-Packard
surged, leading the gains
for tech companies,
after it posted a $1.4
billion profit for its latest
quarter. The world's
second-largest maker of
PCs also issued a strong
profit forecast for its
current quarter.
Stocks also got a boost
from some encouraging
news about the U.S.
economy.
In a sign that workers
are in less danger of
being laid off, the number
of Americans seeking
unemployment benefits


dropped 10,000 last week
to a seasonally adjusted
316,000, according to the
U.S. Labor Department. In
another bit of good news,
consumer confidence rose
in November, according
to a private survey by the
University of Michigan
and financial data compa-
ny Thomson Reuters.
"Today's economic news
was generally favorable,"
said Terry Sandven,
chief equity strategist
for U.S. BankWealth
Management. "In the
absence of bad news, the
path of least resistance for
equities is up."
The stock market has
surged this year on a
combination of solid cor-
porate earnings, a slowly


recovering economy and
easy-money policies from
the Federal Reserve. The
Fed is buying $85 billion
in bonds every month to
keep long-term interest
rates low, making stocks
more attractive than
bonds for investors.
On Wednesday, the
Standard & Poor's 500
index climbed four points,
or 0.3 percent, to close
at an all-time high of
1,807.23.
The Dow Jones industri-
al average rose 24 points,
or 0.2 percent, to close
at its own record high of
16,097.33. The blue-chip
index finished higher for
a fifth straight day, its
longest winning streak
since March.


Consumer confidence rises



to almost two-month high


WASHINGTON
(Bloomberg) -
Confidence among U.S.
consumers rose last week
to the highest level since
early October as tensions
inWashington calmed and
hiring improved.
The Bloomberg
Consumer Comfort Index
increased to minus 33.7 in
the period ended Nov. 24,
the strongest in seven
weeks, from minus 34.6.
Households became less
pessimistic about the state
of their finances and the
economy as the govern-
ment's partial shutdown
last month receded from
memories. The reading
was the best for any
pre-Thanksgiving week
since 2007.
Rising equity and home
prices are bolstering
household wealth and
contributing to a pickup
in attitudes just before the
holiday-shopping season.


The pace of wage and job
growth will also influence
whether consumers boost
their spending, which
accounts for almost
70 percent of the U.S.
economy.
"Confidence among
upper-income house-
holds has definitely been
bolstered by the appreci-
ation in equity markets,"
said Joseph Brusuelas,
a senior economist for
Bloomberg LP in NewYork.
"The risk to sentiment
going forward" may be the
recent rebound in gasoline
prices that would shake
the wherewithal of poorer
Americans especially, said
Brusuelas.
Other figures Wednesday
showed fewer Americans
than expected filed jobless
claims last week and
orders for big-ticket items
declined in October.
Applications for un-
employment benefits


decreased by 10,000 to
316,000 in the week ended
Nov. 23, the fewest in
two months, the Labor
Department said in
Washington. The median
forecast in a Bloomberg
survey called for an
increase to 330,000 claims.
Bookings for goods
meant to last at least three
years fell 2 percent last
month after a 4.1 percent
gain in September,
Commerce Department
data showed. Excluding
transportation equipment,
where demand is often
volatile month to month,
orders dropped 0.1 percent
after a 0.2 percent gain.
Two of the Bloomberg
weekly gauge's three
components improved
last week. The gauge
of personal finances
advanced to 0.1, the first
positive reading in almost
two months, from minus
2.1 the week prior.


Online retailers score high in



ratings of electronics stores


mericans who plan to shop
for electronics this holiday
shopping season might best
be served by shopping online. In
Consumer Reports' latest ratings of
electronics stores, websites as a whole
outdid walk-in stores for quality, se-
lection and price.
Crutchfield.com and
BHPhotoVideo.com were among the
top-scoring online retailers for overall
customer satisfaction in Consumer
Reports' electronics store ratings.
Crutchfield.com was the only website
to receive a top mark for customer
service. BHPhotoVideo.com and
Amazon.com were the only retailers
that got top marks for both selection
and ease of use.
"Shopping online for electronics has
many benefits. Most online retailers
have a wide selection of products and
attractive prices, and obviously you
don't have to put up with crowded
aisles and long checkout lines," said
Glenn Derene, Electronics Content
Development Team Leader for
Consumer Reports.
The full Consumer Reports electron-
ics stores Ratings, which are based on
the shopping experiences of the more
than 21,000 CR readers surveyed, can
be found online at ConsumerReports.
org and in the December 2013
Consumer Reports Annual Electronics
Issue. The issue features 30 pages of
holiday gift-buying advice and Ratings
and reviews of more than 600 of the
hottest electronics products.
For top-notch customer service,
it's hard to beat independent walk-in
stores, which were above par in every
respect except for price. They received
a top Rating not only for customer
service, but for product quality as
well. Apple Store was the only walk-in
chain to receive a top mark on those
same attributes. Costco was the lone
walk-in retailer to earn a top Rating
for prices, though it suffers from sub-
par selection and is only Average for
buying ease.
Shoppers also revealed to
Consumer Reports that it pays to
haggle. Those who bargained with
retailers, in-store or online, succeeded
roughly three times out of five, saving
a median of about $80, according
to the survey. The median savings
jumped to $99 for those who bought
a TV at a walk-in store, while the
median saved on cameras and tablets
was $62.


Consumer



Reports


Top electronics list

The issue also includes Consumer
Reports' second annual list of Ten Top
Electronics. Selected from among the
thousands of electronics CR tested in the
past year, the 10 standout products were
chosen because each pushes technology
or performance to new heights. Product
highlights from this year's list include:
SBrilliant smartphone. LG G2 ($0-$200
with two-year contract). This phone
has a stunning 5.2-inch display and a
battery that doesn't know when to quit.
The power/volume button cluster is on
the back, under the camera, a design LG
considers more ergonomic and intuitive
than the usual top or side mount. You
can count on smarter shortcuts for
common tasks, such as auto answering
when you hold the phone up to your
ear. The ultrasmart camcorder can stay
focused on your subject in interesting
newways.
Best TV yet. Samsung Smart OLED
KN55S9C TV ($9,000). This 55-inch
model, with its eye-catching curved
screen, is one of the first to use OLED
(Organic LED) technology, which
combines the best attributes of plasma
and LCD TVs but has none of their
shortcomings. Incredibly deep blacks,
superbright images, vibrant colors and
strong contrast make images jump off
the screen. Throw in unlimited viewing
angles, great energy efficiency and an
ultrathin design, and you have the best
TV Consumer Reports has ever seen.
Top-notch tablet. Amazon Kindle
Fire HDX ($230). The latest Kindle has
one of the highest resolution 7-inch
displays available, great for watching
videos and reading books and maga-
zines. New X-ray features let you dig
deeper into the videos you watch and
the books you read. CR hasn't fully
tested the Kindle Fire HDX yet, but
prior versions were top-rated, and this
one looks promising.
The Smallest SLR. Canon EOS Rebel
SLI ($750). This camera is almost as
small and light as many mirrorless,
SLR-like models but offers all of the
benefits of a full-fledged SLR, including
a through-the-lens viewfinder and a
wide choice of compatible lenses.

Problems pile up in Asia for US policymakers


WASHINGTON (AP)-
While the Obama adminis-
tration is making diplomat-
ic progress on some of the
Mideast's thorniest security
issues, problems are piling
up in Asia, a region that
President Barack Obama
had wanted to play a bigger
part in American foreign
policy.
Despite efforts to forge
deeper ties with China to
make East Asia more stable,
Beijing's declaration of a
maritime air defense zone
has escalated its territorial
dispute with U.S. ally Japan.
The U.S. responded by fly-
ing B-52 bombers through


the zone on a training
mission Tuesday without
informing Beijing.
Analysts say the risk of a
military clash between the
Asian powers has gone up a
notch a serious concern
for the U.S. because its
treaty obligations mean it
could be drawn in to help
Japan.
Meantime, relations
between America's core
allies in the region, Japan
and South Korea, have
deteriorated. South Korea is
bitter over Japan's attitude
toward its colonial past and
wants more contrition from
Tokyo for Japan's use of


Korean sex slaves in World
War II.
That complicates the
strategic picture for the
Obama administration
as it looks to advance its
so-called pivot to Asia
and strengthen not just its
own alliances, but get its
partners in the region to
collaborate more.
"The region is moving
in a very problematic
direction," said Evans
Revere, a former senior
U.S. diplomat and East
Asia specialist. "That's
the result of territorial
disputes, historical issues,
long-standing rivalries and


the inability of countries
to put history behind
them and move forward in
improving relations."
Adding to this witches'
brew of bickering in the
region, Washington is
grappling with the threat
posed by an unpredictable
North Korea. The deal the
U.S. orchestrated with Iran
to temporarily freeze its
nuclear program, despite
three decades of animosity,
is a stark reminder of the
impasse in negotiations
with Pyongyang.
Unlike Iran, North Korea
already has a nuclear
bomb, and there's worrying


evidence it is pressing
ahead with weapons
development.
Vice President Joe Biden
will broach these issues
when he travels to Japan,
China and South Korea
next week a trip to
demonstrate that the top
level of the administration
remains focused on Asia.
The administration
said that in Beijing, Biden
will meet with Chinese
leaders including President
Xi Jinping and will voice
concern about what it calls
an emerging pattern of
behavior by China that is
unsettling to its neighbors.


The vice president will also
make clear the firm U.S.
commitment to its allies
and its desire for a lowering
of tensions between China
and Japan, the world's
second- and third-largest
economies.
Secretary of State John
Kerry hasn't neglected the
region, but his primary
focus is on the Mideast and
is likely to remain that way
as he strives for the distant
goals of an end to Syria's
civil war, peace between
Israelis and Palestinians,
and a comprehensive
nuclear agreement with
Iran.

(Bloomberg) Pakistan's

Latvian prime
minister resigns in
wake of tragedy

RIGA, Latvia (AP) -
Latvia's prime minister
unexpectedly resigned
on Wednesday, saying he
can no longer lead the
country after a supermar-
ket roof collapse killed
54 people and sparked
public outrage.
Choking back tears,
Dombrovskis told jour-
nalists that the country
needed a change in
leadership.
"Considering the...
tragedy and all the related
circumstances, the coun-
try needs a government
that has majority support
in Parliament and can
solve the situation that
has arisen," Dombrovskis
said.
Dombrovskis, Latvia's
longest-serving prime
minister, has been credit-
ed with steering the Baltic
country from the brink of
economic disaster since
taking power in 2009.
But his tough cuts have
stung, and critics have
suggested the abolition
of a state construction
authority by his budget-
slashing government
weakened oversight
that might have caught
potential building flaws
in the supermarket.

Italy Senate expels
3-time ex-Premier
Berlusconi
ROME (AP) -The
Italian Senate on
Wednesday expelled
three-time ex-Premier
Silvio Berlusconi from
Parliament over his tax
fraud conviction, ending
his two-decade legislative
run for now, but not his
political career.
Berlusconi has warned
that the unprecedented
move would embarrass
Italy internationally,
and he maintained his
defiance even as the
Senate voted, addressing
a cheering crowd outside
of his Roman palazzo a
short walk away.
"We are here on a bitter
day, a day of mourn-
ing for democracy,"
Berlusconi declared.
Even though he won't
hold a seat in Parliament
for at least six years, the
77-year-old Berlusconi
pledged to remain
involved in politics and
urged his followers not
to despair noting that
other political leaders are
not lawmakers.

Dubai chosen
to host 2020
World Expo
PARIS (AP) Fireworks
erupted in Dubai after
the tiny Gulf emirate won
the right to host the 2020
World Expo, becoming
the first Middle Eastern
city to organize the event
in its more than 150-year
history.
Dubai bested com-
peting bids from Izmir,
Turkey; Sao Paulo, Brazil;
and Yekaterinburg,
Russia, after three rounds
of voting by delegates of
the 168-nation Bureau
International des
Expositions in Paris.

Pakistani party
turns up heat on
CIA drone strikes
ISLAMABAD (AP)- A
Pakistani political party
launched a full-throated
attack on the CIA drone
program on Wednesday,
turning up the heat on an
issue that the government
in Islamabad has tried to


manage without sparking
a crisis with the U.S. The
party revealed what it
said was the name of the
CIAs top spy in the coun-
try and called for him to
be tried for murder.
U.S. missile attacks tar-
geting Islamic militants


in Pakistan's northwest
have long been a source
of tension between the
two countries, complicat-
ing an already troubled
alliance that Washington
is relying on to help nego-
tiate an end to the war in
neighboring Afghanistan.

Merkel, center-left
reach deal on new
German gov't
BERLIN (AP) -
Chancellor Angela
Merkel's conservatives
agreed Wednesday to
form a new government
with their traditional cen-
ter-left rivals, a coalition
that will shift Germany
leftward but likely mean
little change in Berlin's
approach to Europe's
debt crisis.
Merkel's Union bloc
and the Social Democrats
signed their deal to form
a "grand coalition" of
Germany's biggest parties


after a final round of talks
capped weeks of wran-
gling following Sept. 22
elections.
A potentially tricky hur-
dle still remains before
Merkel can be sworn in
for a third term: the Social
Democrats are putting
the agreement to a ballot
of their roughly 470,000
members, some of whom
are deeply skeptical about
going into government
with the chancellor. The
result is expected Dec. 14.

Egypt: 21 women
receive 11 years
in prison
CAIRO (AP) -An
Egyptian court has hand-
ed down heavy sentences
of 11 years in prison to 21
female supporters of the
ousted Islamist president,
many of them juveniles,
for holding a protest.
The court in the
Mediterranean city of


Alexandria issued the
ruling Wednesday, weeks
after the women were
arrested during a protest
demanding the reinstate-
ment of Mohammed
Morsi, ousted in a July 3
coup.
They were convicted
on multiple charges,
including holding a
demonstration, sabotage
and using force. Seven of
them are under 18 years
of age.

Thousands bury 3
militants shot by
Israeli troops
HEBRON, West Bank
(AP) -Thousands of
mourners attended the
funerals Wednesday
of three suspected
Palestinian militants who
were killed in an Israeli
army raid in the West
Bank the day before.
The three were jihadi
Salafis, or followers


of a violent stream of
puritanical Islam, and
had planned attacks
on Israelis and on the
Palestinian Authority,
the Palestinian self-rule
government in the West
Bank, said Lt. Col. Peter
Lerner, an Israeli army
spokesman.
Lerner said the group
had started putting
together a terrorist
infrastructure, including
assembling weapons
and explosives. He said
the cell was the "first
substantial indication" of
violent activity by jihadi
Salafis in the West Bank.

China says it
monitored defiant
US bomber flights
BEIJING (AP) China
acknowledged Wednesday
it let two American B-52
bombers fly unhindered
through its newly de-
clared air defense zone


in the East China Sea
despite its earlier threat
to take defensive mea-
sures against unidentified
foreign aircraft.
The U.S. flights, which
tested the Chinese zone
for the first time since
it was declared over
the weekend, raised
questions about Beijing's
determination to enforce
its requirement that
foreign aircraft identify
themselves and accept
Chinese instructions.
China's lack of any
action suggested that it
was merely playing out a
diplomatic game to estab-
lish ownership over the
area rather than provoke
an international incident.
The flights followed
days of angry rhetoric
and accusations over
Beijing's move, designed
to assert Chinese claims
to a group of uninhabited
islands controlled by
Japan.

* NFL: Thanksgiving TV menu

FIRST COURSE
GREEN BAY (5-5-1) AT DETROIT (6-5)
12:30 p.m., FOX
The Lions have lost two straight, blowing
chances to take command of the NFC North,
five in a row against the Packers and a
franchise-record nine straight on Thanks-
giving. They limp into today's annual holiday
showcase against a quarterback who cashed
in by carving them up. Matt Flynn will likely
start his first game for Green Bay since Jan.
1,2012, when he threw for 480 yards and six
touchdowns in a 45-41 win over Detroit. A
couple months later, he signed a $26 million,
three-year deal with Seattle, which traded him
to Oakland, who cut him as did Buffalo.


SECOND COURSE
OAKLAND (4-7) AT DALLAS (6-5)
4:30p.m., CBS
The Cowboys (6-5) are tied with Philadel-
phia atop the NFC East and created some sepa-
ration for the division leaders with last week's
24-21 win over the Giants. Dallas has played
winner-take-all finales against division rivals
the past two seasons, and the possibility looms
again with the Eagles visiting to wrap up the
regular season. The Raiders (4-7) are last in
the AFC West and have virtually no chance to
win the division, but a wild-card berth isn't
unrealistic if they get on a roll. Matt McGloin,
like Tony Romo an undrafted quarterback,
makes his third start for Oakland.


THIRD COURSE
PITTSBURGH (5-6) AT BALTIMORE (5-6)
8:30p.m., NBC
The NFL's version of the Iron Bowl. The last
time the Ravens played on Thanksgiving, coach
John Harbaugh gathered the family together
for a game against brother Jim and the San
Francisco 49ers. Two years later, Harbaugh and
the Ravens will spend the holiday with their
most bitter rival. It doesn't matter that the
ravens and Steelers teams have losing records.
Both teams also have plenty of motivation,
because this game has playoff ramifications. "I
think everyone understands the urgency of the
game'" Pittsburgh's Antonio Brown said. "It's
just iron on iron'." Associated Press

PORT CHARLOTTE -
East Lake football coach

himself an ironic chuckle
when asked about the

Friday night when the
two teams meet in the
Region 7A-3 final.
"What do you have,

In Jameis


they trust

By MARY ELLEN KLAS
MiAMi HERALD
TALLAHASSEE -The Seminole Nation
has decided. Jameis Winston didn't do it.
As state attorneyWillie Meggs continues
his investigation into rape charges against
the standout Florida State University
quarterback, Winston fans have parsed the
evidence, outted the woman and derided
her credibility on message boards, blogs
and on Twitter.
Winston, who through his attorney
has denied all wrongdoing, has not
been charged with a crime, and Meggs
said Monday he will make a decision on
Winston's fate after the Thanksgiving
holiday, but offered no specific time.
But the prospect that the redshirt fresh-
man and Heisman Trophy candidate could
be charged with a felony has so devastated
many FSU football fans that they are
determined to change the narrative.
"The Seminole Nation has been the big-
gest detective of all," said Brandon Parks, a
former FSU backup quarterback and 2010
WINSTON 14


Quarterback Jameis Winston signs autographs after last Saturday's game against Idaho, which
the Seminoles won 80-14. Florida State fans continue to rally around the Heisman candidate.

Classic adds southern comfort


By ZACH MILLER
SPORTS WRITER
The Snowbird Baseball
Classic is becoming a des-
tination spot for college
baseball teams.
The 2014 classic, sched-
uled for Feb. 14 to March
31, will feature 24 Division
I teams and 20 Division
III teams. The classic has
always been an opportu-
nity for college baseball
teams in the north to use
their spring breaks to play
games in warm weather.
This year, though,
the classic will feature a


couple of southern teams,
including Auburn.
"Getting a team out of
the SEC is big, big, big,"
tournament director Steve
Partington said.
There will be a few
other big conference
programs as well.
Kansas, out of the Big
12, will be in town. So will
Ohio State, one of three
teams coming from the
Big Ten. Other big name
programs such as Boston
College, Connecticut,
Villanova and Georgetown
also are making the trip.


The Division III group
is strong as well, starting
with Marietta College,
"the Yankees of Division
III."
The full tournament
schedule is not finalized,
but Partington said it's
close. He's managed to
juggle every team's spring
break dates and requests
for number of games to
play, and plans to have
everything finalized by
the end of December.
One piece of the puzzle
he's waiting on is when
Charlotte Sports Park


will be available. On
Wednesday, the Tampa
Bay Rays announced their
2014 spring training schd-
ule, which starts Feb. 28 at
Charlotte Sports Park.
Auburn, Ohio State,
Connecticut and Indiana
State will all be in town
starting on Feb. 14, and
Partington hopes he can
use the stadium for a few
days before Rays spring
training gets underway.
The other venues
the classic plans to use
includes South County
Regional Park and


Charlotte High School in
Punta Gorda, and North
Charlotte Regional Park in
Port Charlotte. The classic
will not return to Sarasota,
where a few games were
played last year at the
Baltimore Orioles' spring
training ballpark.
"The Orioles didn't like
having us there and I'm
not really sure Sarasota
County liked having us
there," Partington said.
"They just didn't treat us
right or treat the teams
right."

variety of


ticket plans

By ZACH MILLER
SPORTS WRITER
Full season and half season tickets for
the 2014 Charlotte Stone Crabs season
are available, and group deals and mini-
plan and flex packages will be available
before the end of the new year.
Stone Crabs general manager Jared
Forma said the 2014 ticket plans are
more geared toward accommodatingg
people's schedules."
Fans have the option of picking which
35 games they'd like to attend in the
half season package. Mini-plans provide
additional options for fewer games.
"Especially for a family, (a full) 70
games can be a bit much, so we're trying
to make it more convenient," Forma
said.
Promotions and specials will include
seven fireworks nights, as well as T-shirt
and hat giveaway nights and theme
nights, Forma said. There will also be
specials every night of the week, such as
$1 hot dogs on "Weenie Wednesdays."
A new "snowbird special" allows fans
to pick any three games in April and
May and receive two free tickets to the
season opener.

Thanksgiving memories, good and bad


By SCHUYLER DIXON
ASSOCIATED PRESS
ARLINGTON, Texas -The
NFL played six games on
Thanksgiving in 1920. The hol-
iday tradition apparently didn't
settle in until 1934, the year the
Detroit Lions were born.
Back then, the Lions were just
looking for a way to take some
attention from the Detroit
Tigers, who were so popular
that new football owner George
A. Richards thought he needed
a diversion even though it was
baseball's offseason.
The game against Chicago
was a big success, so the Lions
have played on Thanksgiving
ever since, save for a six-year
gap during World War II. The
Dallas Cowboys were invited to
join them in 1966.
Every year since 1978, it's
been Lions and Cowboys on
turkey day, with the night-time
addition of a third game start-
ing in 2006 thanks to the rise of
the NFL Network although
the night game now is on NBC.
Not to mention that there are
now Thursday night games all
season as the league expands
its reach.
"It seems like every week a
team is playing with the new
schedule, but there's nothing
like playing on Thanksgiving,"
said Cowboys tight end Jason
Witten, who is the Thanksgiving
leader since 1960 with 62
catches in 10 games and has
679 yards receiving and three
touchdowns. "Every kid, I'm
sure, growing up, I was no
different. That's what you love.
Your family eats and you watch
the Cowboys play. It's special to
be in that game."

"I just feel like it's something
he's touched," Young says. "I'll
pull them out when I want to be
near him."
But the father she can't re-
member didn't leave her the one
thing she desperately wants.
To know what he sounded like.
To hear his voice.
The stats show that Verlon
Walker wasn't much of a
baseball player. He spent
12 seasons in the lower minor
leagues, bouncing around to
places like Lumberton, N.C. and
Wenatchee, Wash., and never
getting a sniff from the majors.
Casual fans may remember
his older brother, who shares
the "Rube" nickname. Albert
Walker spent much of the 1950s
backing up Roy Campanella on
the Brooklyn Dodgers, but he's
perhaps best known for being
behind the plate in 1951 when
Bobby Thomson hit the home
run that won the pennant for the
New York Giants.
The Walker brothers were
country boys who grew up poor
in the Depression era in the Blue
Ridge foothills of Lenoir, N.C.
Both were catchers, and both
had dreams of making baseball
their career.
Verlon Walker's ticket to the
major leagues came only after
his playing career ended. A play-
er-manager in the last part of his
minor league, he was brought up
in 1961 by the Chicago Cubs as a
base coach.
"He was so proud to be in
the Cubs' organization and be
able to play a game for a living,"
Young said. "I don't think he ever
took that for granted for one
minute."
Walker's major league coach-
ing career spanned a decade
during a transitional period
in baseball. Leo Durocher was
manager of the Cubs the last
half of the decade, and among
the pictures Young has is one of

TOP TURKEY MOMENTS
OF 2012
Two goofy gaffes happened on the same
Thanksgiving lastyear, starting with Detroit
coach Jim Schwartz throwing a challenge flag
when he wasn't allowed to because all scoring
plays are automatically reviewed. Schwartz
drew an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that
negated the review and gave Houston's Justin
Forsettan 81-yard touchdown even though
replay showed his knee and elbow touched the
turf. Houston won 34-31 in OT.

to the majors standing with
Cincinnati outfielder Frank
Robinson in 1961.
Shortly after getting married in
1966, though, Walker was diag-
nosed with leukemia. Treatment
sent it into remission, and Leigh
Ann was born in 1968. But two
years later just after Walker
had been promoted to pitching
coach for the 1971 season -the
leukemia returned.
Within a few short months,
Walker was dead. He was laid
to rest in his home town, and
players lined up for a moment
of silence on opening day at
Wrigley to honor his memory.
The Cubs and White Sox
played their annual charity game
that summer for their late coach.
Players passed the hat among

he idea came to Young as
she watched her husband
play with their two sons at
home in Charlotte.
She had the pictures, and
she had some of his things. She
even had some old silent home
movies with her father in them.
But she yearned to hear the
voice she can't remember ever
hearing. She wanted a physical
connection with a father she
never really had.
"I wasn't really missing


the backside of guard Brandon Moore. New
England's Steve Gregory picked up the loose
ball and ran 32 yards untouched for a score in
the Patriots'49-19 victory.

LONGLEYTO PEARSON
No. 1 on the NFL's list of Thanksgiving
moments. Clint Longley, filling in for an injured
Roger Staubach, threw a 50-yard touchdown
pass to Drew Pearson with 28 seconds left in a
24-23 Dallas victory over Washington in 1974.
That game as much as any other helped turn
Cowboys-Redskins into one of football's best
rivalries.
They almost had a reprise last year when
the Cowboys cut a 28-3 deficit to 35-28 in the
fourth quarter, but Robert Griffin III led a drive
that put it away.


someone, but there was just this
big hole, this lack of something
I never had," she said. "There's
something that fathers give to
little girls that can't come from
anywhere else."
Surely, Young thought, some-
one had a recording somewhere
with his voice on it. Almost
everything in baseball is record-
ed in some way, and there had
to be a tape with Verlon Walker
speaking out there.
Durocher was known to have
been kicked out of a game or
two. Maybe her father took over
the team for one of those games,
and maybe he was interviewed
for the broadcast afterward.
Maybe some die-hard Cubs fan
at home recorded the games on
a reel-to-reel tape machine.
Maybe somebody just hap-
pened to have a tape recorder
rolling when he talked.
The Cubs were helpful, but
they had nothing. Neither did
WGN radio, the team's broad-
caster, though play-by-play voice
Pat Hughes tried his best to find
Walker's voice.
Young has been searching for
two years now, making phone
calls that always begin with
"You don't know me but..." The
quest has put her in touch with
broadcasters, historians and
players from the teams he dad
helped coach.
So far she's struck out at every
turn. But along the way she's
discovered things about her
father, and about herself.
"Every person I've talked to
has healed my soul one way or
another," she said. "And I didn't
plan for any of that."
Former Cubs pitcher Dick
Ellsworth told her about her
father's quiet sense of humor.
Longtime Cubs shortstop Don
Kessinger told her that her father
was one of the nicest guys he
ever knew. From Joey Amalfitano
came word that Durocher really
liked her dad.
Everyone wants to help,
searching their memories to try
and find something big to tell
Young about her father. What she
really wants to know, though, are
the little things.
Did he like sunflower seeds?
Did he ever get thrown out of a
game? Was he a good baseball
man? Did he yell at players?
"It's the tiny things about


SAY IT AIN'T SO, LEON
Cowboys fans will never forget Leon Lett
awkwardly sliding on the snow-covered turf
of Texas Stadium in 1993, trying to cover up a
ball he wasn't supposed to touch after Dallas
blocked a Miami field goal for an apparent
victory. Lett's move made it a live ball, and
the Dolphins recovered at the 1. With a second
chance, Pete Stoyanovich kicked a 19-yard field
goal as time expired for a 16-14 win.

TOSS TURNED A GAME
Coin tosses were changed forever when
referee Phil Luckett didn't hear Jerome Bettis
correctly on the flip for overtime in the 1998
game between Detroit and Pittsburgh. Players
generally made the head/tails call with the


people that make them real," she
said. "I want to know the whole
story, flaws and all. I want a full
rounded man."
What she's gotten has helped
her further build a portrait of a
father she doesn't remember.
At the same time it's exposed a
gaping hole in her life.
"I didn't realize how wounded
I was until I started this journey,"
Young said. "I never would have
thought how important talking
to all these people has been to
me."
Leigh Ann and her mother,
how 84, still go to the
gravesite in Lenoir on
special occasions. They'll bring
flowers, just like they did when
she was little.
She's not sure she will ever
hear the voice she so desperately
wants to hear, but she's not
about to give up the chase. It's
been a giant treasure hunt, even
if the prizes are different than
what she imagined.
"I thought I'd call a couple of
people, someone would send me
a tape and I'd cry some tears and
it would be over," she said. "But
it's taken on a life of its own."
Young writes a blog about her
quest (baseballlovestory.com)
and she's surprised by the people
who contact her on it. They're
drawn in by different things,
but they've found a common
connection.
She's learned so much about
her father, opened so many
doors to her past. The journey
toward finding her father's voice
has led down many paths, and
helped her understand more a
man she never really knew.
Hearing his voice would fit the
last piece of the puzzle together.
But at the same time, she's scared
of what she may hear.
"I know it sounds absurd
having launched this quest but
the prospect of finding it and
hearing it sometimes brings
more fear than not," she said.
"The thought of finding the
actual thing I'm looking for
brings a level of emotion that is
overwhelming."
It's something she's willing
to risk because the reward is so
great. The little blonde girl in the
pictures is all grown up now. And
she believes her father would be
proud.

In today's game, refs make sure they have
the call before they toss the coin, and overtime
rules now give the team that doesn't get the
ball first a chance to match an opening field
goal in the extra period.

PLACING BOUNTIES
Long before Sean Payton was suspended for
a season in the New Orleans bounty scandal,
Dallas and Philadelphia engaged in a bounty
war on Thanksgiving in 1989. The Cowboys
were on their way to a 1-15 record under
Jimmy Johnson when the first-year coach
claimed after a 27-0 loss that the Eagles had
puta $500 bounty on rookie quarterback Troy
Aikman, and a $200 tag on former Eagles
kicker Luis Zendejas. Eagles coach Buddy
Ryan said he didn't know about any bounties.
Johnson said he would have confronted Ryan
on the field but that the Philadelphia coach
"put his big, fat rear end in the dressing room."

RECORD-SETTERS
O.J. Simpson had the only 200-yard rushing
day on Thanksgiving in 1976, although Buffalo
lost to the Lions 27-14. Simpson's big day was
also the league record at the time, surpassed
a year later when Chicago's Walter Payton
rushed for 275 yards against Minnesota. There
have been four bigger games since, topped by
Adrian Peterson's 296 yards when Minnesota
beat San Diego 35-17 in 2007.
Miami's Bob Griese had a record six
touchdown passes in a 55-14 victory over St.
Louis in 1977, the last year the Cowboys didn't
host the game because of complaints over an
unfair advantage. Peyton Manning tied that
mark with Indianapolis in a 41-9 win over
Detroit in 2004.


* NFL NOTEBOOK


Thigpen


eager to


make his


mark

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
DAVIE -When Arian
Foster made his NFL
breakthrough in 2010,
Marcus Thigpen took note,
confident he could make a
big splash himself if given
an opportunity.
That chance will likely
come Sunday, when
Thigpen assumes a more
prominent role with the
Miami Dolphins in their
road game against the New
York Jets.
With running back
Daniel Thomas sidelined
because of a sprained
ankle, Thigpen has been
promoted to the backup
spot behind starter Lamar
Miller. That likely means
significant playing time for
Thigpen, a second-year
pro who has excelled as a
kick returned but has only
three career carries.
"I always had the idea
that if I could get the
opportunity to go out there
and showcase my talents, I
could shock the coaches,"
Thigpen said. "They don't
know what I can do,
because I haven't been in
this position. Once they
give me the opportunity, I
can definitely show them."
Including runbacks,
Thigpen has had five
gains of 50 yards or more
in his brief career, which
underscores his breakaway
ability.

Around the league:
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers will miss his
third consecutive game and Matt Flynn
will become Green Bay's fourth starting
quarterback this season when they play
at Detroit today. The Packers are 0-3-1
without Rodgers....
Oakland running back Darren
McFadden went through a light practice
and will play against Dallas today....
The Cowboys will be without
linebackers Sean Lee and Justin Durant
for the second straight game.

Blue Devils can clinch ACC title game


By JOEDY McCREARY
AP SPORTS WRITER
DURHAM, N.C. No. 24 Duke
is in the midst of one of the most
successful seasons in program
history. Just don't refer to the Blue
Devils as one-year wonders.
The perennial losers are a victory
against North Carolina from setting
a school record with 10 wins and
earning a spot in the Atlantic Coast
Conference championship game.
Players insist this season hasn't
been a flash in the pan. Rather, it's
the latest step forward in the con-
struction of a consistent program.
"I'm confident in what coach
(David Cutcliffe) has done here,
and what we've done as a team,
and it's (to) turn the program
around to where now we expect to
have winning seasons," linebacker
Kelby Brown said Tuesday.
That's a bold statement for a
program that, until now, hadn't
finished above .500 since 1994.
Beat the Tar Heels on Saturday,
and Duke (9-2, 5-2) will have the
Coastal Division title all to itself
and will face No. 2 Florida State in
its first ACC title game.
Cutcliffe said before the win over
then-No. 24 Miami two weeks ago
that that winning 10 games would
be "getting into the dream year" for
Duke.
Now the Blue Devils are one
victory from making it a reality -
but are keeping from getting too

caught up in it.
"The mood in the locker room
is happy and up-spirited because
we've never been in this position,"
receiver Jamison Crowder said.
"At the same time, the coaches are
doing a good job managing our
spirits and everything, not to get
too high, and go out and play and
enjoy the moment and realize that
things can go backwards.
"Enjoy the moment," he added,
"but don't get too overjoyed."
They've come a long way from
the hapless bunch that from 1996-
2007 had four winless seasons and
two years with one win. They've
been a perennial preseason last-
place pick in the Coastal even
this year.
Duke's seven-game winning
streak is its longest since a sev-
en-game run in 1994, also the last
time the Blue Devils appeared in
the national rankings.
"This is why we came here,"
Brown said. "We came here to build
this program up. I fully believe
that's exactly what we're doing."

WINSTON
FROM PAGE 1
graduate, before the Seminoles'
home game against Idaho on
Saturday. Like many fans, he had
uploaded a photo of a woman
he considered Winston's alleged
accuser from one of many
Internet sites.
"Here she is with him," Parks
said, pointing to a picture of a
petite blonde standing, smiling,
next to Winston, each stretching
an arm around the other's waist.
Winston towers over the
woman. "How can you tell me
she didn't know his name?"
Parks asks, referring to the police
report that identified the suspect
as "unknown" when the woman
called police at 4 a.m. from an
off-campus apartment last year.
But other websites circulated
a different photo, of a different
blonde woman, clearly taller.
"This is her a week after the
'alleged rape' going out to some
sorority Xmas thing," writes the
Terez Owens blog site. "This
whole story reeks of lies and
cover-ups."

POPULAR SUPPORT
The allegations were the talk of
pregame conversations through-
out Tallahassee as fans packed
the stadium for FSU's home
finale. Fans held signs that read
"We still believe," and greeted
Winston with a standing ovation


before the first play.
Children and families ran to
get his autograph and chanted
his name: "Jame-is, Jame-is."
In the stadium gift shop, where
Winston's No. 5 is proudly
displayed, every Winston jersey
was sold out.
"Everyone thinks he's inno-
cent," said Brooke Barbera, a
sophomore fromWest Palm
Beach. "I haven't heard anyone
think he's not."
She recited the questions
about the timing of the accuser's
claim, suggesting that because
she waited a month before
identifying him to police, the
accuser was a scorned lover
seeking revenge.
"I'd never say some of the
things out there on the Internet,"
Barbera said. "It think it's ugly.
But I think she was angry. All the
facts show it."
The sentiment on behalf of
Winston spans the generations.
Phil and Shirlee Maus are
retirees and long-time Seminole
boosters.
"Having gone to college and
been a fraternity member, I
know things happen. Boys will
be boys," said Phil Maus, seated
in his garnet lawn chair in the
booster lot before the game.
"We find it hard to believe,"
said his wife, Shirlee, who
questions the timing of the
allegations, which emerged just
as the undefeated team was clos-
ing in on an invitation to play for
its first national championship


in 14 years. "Is there a financial
advantage for her now?"

REPUTATIONS
FSU rules require that anyone
charged with a felony be sus-
pended from play. For Winston,
that means he would likely have
to sit out the Jan. 6 national
championship game.
At a postgame news confer-
ence Saturday, neither Winston
nor his coach made any refer-
ence to the swirling controversy.
The talk centered on the 11-0
season, the four-touchdown
game and the 80-point score.
"The football field is a sanctu-
ary for me," Winston agreed in
response to a reporter's question.
"When everybody's on the field,
we're zoned out and we focus."
But many fans wonder if the
mere allegation has already
served to tarnish his name.
"Unless it is announced -and
soon that the accusation of
sexual assault is a case of totally
mistaken identity, Winston
will suffer the weight of scan-
dal," wrote Gerald Ensley, a
Tallahassee Democrat columnist
and Heisman voter. "And it will
end his Heisman chances even
if he leads FSU to the national
championship."
The Heisman ballots were
distributed on Monday and are
not due until after the confer-
ence championship game on the
weekend of Dec. 7.
Dec. 7 is also the one-year
anniversary of when the FSU


student called Tallahassee police
at 4 a.m. to claim that she had
been raped. It took another
month before she identified the
suspect, Jameis Winston.
Prosecutors learned of the
case for the first time last week,
for reasons that have yet to be
explained.
The accuser hired Tampa
attorney Patricia Carroll,
who has told the media that
Tallahassee police detective
Scott Angulo told her in January
that "Tallahassee is a big football
town" and her client's life would
be made "miserable" if she
pursued an allegation against
Winston, a two-sport athlete
who was preparing then for
baseball season.
Only after the case emerged in
the media this month did police
obtain a DNA sample from
Winston, which matched that
found on the victim. Through his
attorney, Tim Jansen, Winston
has said they had consensual
sex. Carroll countered: "The
victim did not consent. This was
rape."

GAUGING DOUBTS
Some FSU fans are withhold-
ing judgment, but for many
the lapse of time between the
allegation and now has raised
questions about the accuser's
credibility.
Doug Dunlap, a Seminoles
booster, wonders why it took so
long for DNA tests be done.
"If this was my daughter, I'd be


pushing police about this once a
week," he said.
Nanci Newton, director of the
Center for Victim Advocacy at
the University of South Florida,
is not surprised by the sentiment
and vitriol aimed at the accuser.
One in four college women
will be sexually assaulted while
in college, she said, and college
campuses are "a mirror of our
larger society" that sees athletes
as heroes and values men over
women.
"When athletes are accused of
rape, the victim is called all kinds
of terrible names," she said.
"That is not a world that values
women."
Caught in the middle is Meggs,
the veteran Leon County prose-
cutor who has been accused on
Internet sites of being both an
FSU apologist and a grandstand-
ing prosecutor. If he decides
to file charges, can he get a fair
trial?
"We've had some pretty
sensational cases here in this
jurisdiction over the last 30
years," Meggs said. "I can only
think of a couple times when we
moved the trial.
"There are 250,000 people that
live in this jurisdiction; 84,000 go
to a football game; half of them
are from out of town, and most
of them stay only until halftime
as we rout the competition," he
said. "I don't think the size of the
crowd at FSU football games is
indicative of what our citizens
are thinking."

COLLAPSE AT CUP VENUE

SAG PAULO (AP) Part
of the stadium that will host
the 2014 World Cup opener
collapsed Wednesday, killing
two workers and aggravating
already urgent concerns Brazil
won't be ready for soccer's
signature tournament.
The accident at the Arena
Corinthians, known locally as
the Itaquerao, could hardly
have come at a worse time
- just a week ahead of the
draw that will determine the
tournament's schedule and
with the top names in soccer all
descending on Brazil.
Preparations have been
plagued by setbacks including
cost overruns, stadium delays,
accidents, labor strife and huge
street protests in the run-up to


the June tournament, once en-
visioned as a coming out party
for South America's largest
nation, which is also scheduled
to host the 2016 Olympics in
Rio de Janeiro.
Already, public prosecutors
and a workers union in Sao
Paulo were demanding an
investigation into conditions
at the venue, saying work
shouldn't resume until authori-
ties deem the stadium safe....
Police investigating match-fixing in English
football have made six arrests in a probe
centered on a suspected international betting
syndicate, authorities said. The arrests follow
an undercover investigation by Britain's Daily
Telegraph newspaper, which reported that
at least three of the men held this week are
footballers. ...
Nine-time winner Real Madrid qualified
for the Champions League's last 16 alongside
Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain
on Wednesday, while Juventus kept alive its
chances of reaching the knockout stages.


Madrid, which only needed a draw at home
to Galatasaray to clinch top spot in Group B,
won 4-1 with goals from Gareth Bale, Alvaro
Arbeloa, Angel Di Maria and Isco.

' Frederick


back on the court


North Port
senior return
following
knee surgery
By DAWN KLEMISH
SUN CORRESPONDENT
NORTH PORT It has
been a long road to recov-
ery for Camille Frederick,
and the North Port High
School forward is soaking
up every minute of her
return to the court.
Frederick, a senior, un-
derwent surgery in May
to repair a torn ACL in her
left knee. The recovery
and rehabilitation period
was set at 6-9 months,
but Frederick made sure
she did what was neces-
sary to rejoin the Bobcats
in the minimum allotted
time frame.
She suffered a minor
setback this week when
she twisted her ankle, but
coach Tom Tintor said the
injury wasn't serious.
"It feels so good to
be back, you don't even
know," Frederick said,
after her first game action
Nov. 19. "I love this game
and I love my teammates.
It was so hard to be
sitting and watching all
this time."
Frederick had nine
points in her first game
back during time lim-
ited only because she
has to ease back into
conditioning.
"I was a little tired out
there," she admitted
afterward. "I wasn't able
to run or anything for a
long time, so it's going
to take a while to get
into shape again. But I'm
ready for it."
Tintor was happy to
see Frederick step back,
as much because she fills
a veteran void under the
basket as anything.
"She's just a great girl
and she plays with a lot of
heart," Tintor said. "She
brings a great energy to
the court and we defi-
nitely missed having her
around. We're very glad to
have her around."

win on the final day of the Shark
Showdown last Saturday, thanks
to Courtney Robertson's 34-point
performance.
The two-day, two-game tourney,
hosted by Gulf Coast, also saw North
Port and Lemon Bay also split.
Robertson will be honored Dec.
6 in a pre-game ceremony officially
welcoming her to the 1,000 career
points club. The Pirates will tip off
against North Fort Myers immediately
after.

Good days in the Bay:
Seniors point guard Hayley Smith
and forward Kayla Reid stand to join
Robertson very shortly in elite 1,000
club status.
The two, who are in their fourth
varsity years, combined for 30
points in a Tuesday win against
Charlotte.

Hey man, nice wheels:
Charlotte sophomore Mykelli Taylor
celebrated her 16th birthday Tuesday
in a game against Lemon Bay. The
center was honored with a starting
role in the contest and pregame
birthday message and a bag of
birthday treats and balloons.
Taylor had a career-high 8 points
and 8 rebounds in the loss, and added
a steal and a block.

Varejao hints
superstar
might go back
to Cleveland
By JASON LLOYD
AKRON BEACON JOURNAL
INDEPENDENCE,
Ohio Speculation over
LeBron James' future
continues to build both
inside and outside the
NBA. Anderson Varejao
fueled the discussion
Tuesday when he said he
believed James could play
for the Cavaliers again
someday.
"It could happen," said
Varejao, the last remain-
ing link to the James-led
Cavs teams. "Bron is from
Akron. Akron is not too
far from here. Eventually
in his career, he probably
wants to play at home."
Then unprovoked, the
normally quiet Varejao
said he didn't like the way
James left the Cavs via
the one-hour television
special three years ago.
"I think the way he
left was wrong," Varejao
said. "But regardless ... he
helped me a lot, helped


summer about a possible
reunion with James,
Brown told the Beacon
Journal that the two
parted ways three years
ago on better terms than
people think.
"There are no ill
feelings or ill will or
anything like that coming
from me toward LeBron,"
Brown said in July. "I'm
excited for him and his
family for where he is and
I truly believe he feels the
same about me. He has
said nice things publicly
about me in the past
couple years, and I have
about him."

Jayhawks set to headline Atlantis


By TIM REYNOLDS
ASSOCIATED PRESS
Kansas coach Bill Self
was looking at a maga-
zine a few days ago, and
several teams captured
his attention. Like Iowa,
Villanova, Xavier and
Tennessee, for example.
Their common thread:
They're all expected to be
NCAA tournament teams
come March.
They're also all in
the field at the Battle 4
Atlantis, which opens
quarterfinal play at
Paradise Island, Bahamas
today. No. 2 Kansas and
No. 23 Iowa are the two
ranked clubs in the event,
where eight teams will all
be playing three games in
three days.


"Yes, I am looking
forward to it," Self said.
"Teams don't become
teams until they take
a trip or do something
together. We aren't a team
yet. No team in America is
a team, yet. Hopefully, this
will be a time when we
can grow together and go
have some fun, but make
it a business trip and go
down there and play well."
Self knows the
Jayhawks' depth will be
tested, under conditions
that will replicate the
play-every-day feel of
conference tournaments.
So, too, will be the
presumed No. 1 pick in
next year's NBA draft.
AndrewWiggins is
averaging 16.8 points


on nearly 59 percent
shooting, one of the
many reasons why the
Jayhawks have won all
four of their games. Now
the freshman will put his
talent on display in the
Bahamas, starting with
Kansas' matchup against
Wake Forest on Thursday
afternoon.
And despite all the
attention he's had, Wiggins
is still sounding like his
own worst critic.
"I need to run the floor
hard every time I'm out
there, from baseline to
baseline," Wiggins said.
"I need to look to push
the ball more and be even
more assertive than I
already am. ... I can still be
better."

Suber offered.
"Offensive line," Anthony
Stephens repeated.
And soon enough, the whole
group had that on their lips.
But while the line is a big part
of the Pirates' rushing success, so
are the guys running with the ball.
Keon Suber leads the Pirates on
the season with 646 yards and five
touchdown, a fairly modest total.
But Port Charlotte also enjoys the
efforts of Anthony Stephens (533
yards, five touchdowns), Grady
Wells (496 yards, four touchdowns)
and Martin Luther (452 yards,
eight touchdowns) you could
call them supporting players, but
from week to week they could fill a
primary role.
The obvious example was when
Ian Tyler needed to play a more
prominent role against Charlotte
after Anthony Stephens sprained
his ankle. Tyler turned in a break-
out performance with 178 yards
and a touchdown, confounding the
Tarpons' defense with his speed
and shiftiness.
While any of them could have
been a featured back on another
team, the group's willingness to
accept a smaller (but certain) role
has been a boon to the Pirates'
attack.
It's a much different scheme than
last season when James Romulus
often served as a featured back.
"The offensive line has done a
great job," Port Charlotte coach
Jordan Ingman acknowledged.
"And he biggest thing is they're


Keon Suber (5), carrying last year
against Charlotte High School, leads
Port Charlotte in rushing this year.

ON THE RUN
Port Charlotte doesn't have one dominant
running back, but the Pirates still get the job
done, totaling more than 3,000 rushing yards
for the year between its seven running backs
and quarterback Traige McClary.

rhythm they have slipped into, one
that has served them well.
But they are confident they will
get their touches six different
running backs carried the ball in
Port Charlotte's 35-0 victory over
Melbourne last week, racking up
239 combined rushing yards.
"We're kind of a family," Wells
said. "So everything we do is for
each other. There's no selfishness
on this team. We work hard for the
brother that's next to us, not the
person we see in the mirror."
"We like to spread it out, so
everybody gets his touches," Suber
said.
In addition, the backs have
slightly different skill sets, from
Wells' battering-ram runs be-
tween the tackles to Stephens'
bursts around the edges to Tyler's
shiftiness.
"I think they all have different
skill sets, different things they do
well," Ingman said "As a defense,
it's tough to prepare for that."
So tough, East Lake might as well
be preparing for 13 players. If the
Pirates are clicking Friday night, it
will seem like that anyway.

Change is inevitable. That's something my
father always told me as a kid. He still says it
today, and it pretty much holds true. It may not
always be for the best, but things change.
Change can be a good thing. If you can change
things for the better, I say do it. If Medicare
doesn't seem to work, change it. If you don't
like your job, make a change. Of course, those
types of big changes are much easier said than
done. But sometimes little changes can make a
big difference. Changing your diet can make a
big difference. Changing your spending habits
makes a big difference. Even changing your atti-
tude or appearance can make all the difference
in the world.
While WaterLine publisher Josh Olive and I
may disagree on a few things from time to time,
we are both on the same page when it comes to
maintaining and improving the quality of Water-
Line, and that comes through change.
WaterLine has made a few changes since I've
come on board as editor. We've brought on a


few more columnists. We've added a few more
sections and features. We've added contests and
giveaways, and will have more during the next
couple of months. But more changes are coming.
One of those is the addition of WaterLine apparel.
Now, we're definitely not trying to compete
with major name brands out there. We can't. We
are on a bare-bones budget. We just thought it
would be pretty cool to see the WaterLine logo
out there. We're going to start out with hats. And
as long as they look good, are durable and are
easily affordable, why not? I think T-shirts would
also be pretty cool, as long as they don't have a
big picture of Josh's face on them no offense,
handsome buddy!
Those changes are all fine and dandy, but the
change that excites us most are hosting events.
We have a few ideas, and we are going to kick off
the first event in the form of a fishing tourna-
ment. I think it's neat getting a bunch of people
together with common interests, especially for a
good cause.

s, hats

The tourney will be dubbed the Feed the Hungry
Trout Scramble, and we're going to keep it simple.
It's going to be held Jan. 11 at the Fishery restau-
rant in Placida. We're not targeting the area's top
anglers, although anyone is welcome to sign up.
Instead, we're going to make it a bit more fami-
ly-oriented. Instead of a typical 7 a.m. tournament
start, we're going to begin at about noon gives
everybody a chance to get prepared, or to catch up
on a bit more sleep. We're also going to have a pig
roast and a band. And remember those hats? I'm
sure there will be a few there.
Again, we're going for a family atmosphere.
Competitiveness is sometimes good, but this is
going to simply be a good time. Of course, there
will be some nice prizes given out.
The best part of the event is that the fish
won't go to waste. The trout will be cleaned,
packaged and donated to the Salvation Army of
Charlotte and Sarasota counties I'm getting

IT WON'T GET UP ON PLANE, BUT...


REUTERS Usually a fisherman catches a fish and puts
it in the fridge. In one typhoon-wrecked Filipino village,
fishermen are putting themselves in the fridge and then
going fishing. Supertyphoon Haiyan crashed into the
central Philippines on Nov. 8, laying waste to just about
everything in its path, including the long, stylish fishing
boats moored along beaches. Jimmy Obaldo, 52, was the
first ofTanauan's fishermen to try it out."We got the idea
from my children they just asked me if we could use it
as a boat," he said.

MOOSE-EATING SHARK CHOKES
CBC News -Two men pulled off what was perhaps the
most Canadian animal rescue mission of all time this week
when they saved a large Greenland shark from choking to
death on a moose.
Derrick Chaulk was driving along the coast near Norris Arm
North in Newfoundland when he spotted what he believed
to be a beached whale. The beached whale turned out to
be a shark with a big hunk of moose hide hanging out of
its mouth. Enlisting the aid of another local man, Jeremy
Ball, Chaulk was able to extract the moose chunk and push
the creature back into the sea from whence it came. The
mystery still remains, though, of how exactly the shark
came into possession of the moose parts. According to
Chaulk, people clean and gut moose near where he found
the shark, often throwing the scraps and entrails into
the harbor. Jeffrey Gallant, of the Greenland Shark and


Elasmobranch Education and Research Group, believes that
although Chaulk and Ball did the right thing by getting
the shark back in the water, they would have been better
served leaving the moose chunk in its mouth. "When you're
man-handling a shark like this and trying to get it back
in the water;"he told CBC News, "the fact that its mouth
was otherwise preoccupied by chewing on the meat, you
reduce the risk yourself of getting bit accidentally."


HOUSTON (AP) British Petroleum recently announced
it has added two drilling rigs to the deepwater Gulf
of Mexico, bringing its fleet to a company record nine
rigs in the U.S. offshore basin. One of the rigs is a new
ultra-deepwater drillship known as the West Auriga that is
under long-term contract to BP from Seadrill Ltd, a leading
international offshore drilling contractor. The vessel, capable
of operating in up to 12,000 feet of water, has begun
development-drilling work at BP's Thunder Horse field. The
other is a reconstructed drilling rig on BP's Mad Dog oil and
gas production platform. It replaces the original rig on the
platform that was badly damaged and left inoperable by
Hurricane Ike in 2008. BP currently anticipates investing on
average at least $4 billion in the Gulf of Mexico each year
for the next decade. The BP-operated Macondo Prospect
was the site ofThe Deepwater Horizon oil spill that began in
April 2010 with a blowout that claimed 11 lives and flowed
for 87 days, discharging an estimated 4.9 million barrels.

BIG FINE FOR BIRD-KILLING WINDMILLS
WASHINGTON (AP) A major U.S. power company has
pleaded guilty to killing eagles and other birds at two


Wyoming wind farms and agreed to pay $1 million as part
of the first enforcement of environmental laws protecting
birds against wind energy facilities. Until the settlement
announced Nov. 22 with Duke Energy Corp. and its renewable
energy arm, not a single wind energy company had been
prosecuted for a death of an eagle or other protected
bird even though each death is a violation of federal
law, unless a company has a federal permit. Not a single
wind energy facility has obtained a permit.The Charlotte,
N.C.-based company pleaded guilty to killing 14 eagles and
149 other birds at its Top of the World and Campbell Hill
wind farms outside Casper, Wyo. "Wind energy is not green
if it is killing hundreds of thousands of birds/said George
Fenwick, president of the American Bird Conservancy, which
supports properly sited wind farms."The unfortunate reality
is that the flagrant violations of the law seen in this case
are widespread.""No form of energy generation, or human
activity for that matter, is completely free of impacts, and
wind energy is no exception/the American Wind Energy
Association said in a statement.

LICENSE, SCHMICENSE
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) A 37-year-old man from northern
New York who piloted commercial boats on Lake Ontario,
running a tugboat aground in 2012, has admitted in
federal court that he had no merchant marine license and
presented false documents to marina owners and others to
get work. Mark Anselm of Clayton faces at least two years
in prison and could face up to 27 after pleading guilty Nov.
22 to six felonies for making false statements to U.S. Coast
Guard officials, possessing and using an altered license and
identity theft. Sentencing is scheduled March 28.

SHARK FINNERS FIND LOOPHOLE
Exporting shark fins is a lucrative business in Costa Rica,
where it appears fishermen are exploiting a legal loophole
to get as many of them as they can no matter the
environmental cost. Earlier this month, the Costa Rican
National Coast Guard notified Interpol that some fishermen
have been employing a gruesome technique of mutilating
sharks to circumvent national legislation that states the
animal's fins must be "naturally attached"to its body when
it's brought onto land. Grisly images provided by Interpol
show butchered sharks with only a band of skin to keep the
fins attached to the spine. The rest of the body is thrown
out at sea, enabling fishermen to transport many more


nfins. "I nis is surely against the spirit or the law, Sonja
Fordham, president of Sharks Advocates International,
told The Huffington Post over the phone. "It's really very
disappointing and upsetting."The law dictating that fins
be "naturally attached"to sharks when they're landed
has been enacted in about 50 countries worldwide,
according to a 2012 report by the Pew Environment Group.
Conservationists believe this law is one of the better
ways to end the brutal and wasteful fishing practice of
shark finning, which involves the slicing off ofa shark's
fins before the dying animal is discarded at sea. Fordham
called the ban a"widely recognized best practice." Costa
Rican authorities say that by alerting Interpol to the gory
butchering tactic they've uncovered, they hope to warn
other nations of the law's loophole.

STOP PICKING ON BLONDES!
A brunette wanted to go ice fishing. She'd seen many
books on the subject, and finally getting all the necessary
tools together, she made for the ice. After positioning her
comfy footstool, she started to make a circular cut in the
ice. Suddenly, from the sky, a voice boomed, "THERE ARE
NO FISH UNDERTHE ICE!"Startled, the brunette moved
further down the ice, poured a thermos of cappuccino, and
began to cut yet another hole. Again, the voice from the
heavens bellowed, 'THERE ARE NO FISH UNDERTHE ICE!"The
brunette, now worried, moved clear down to the opposite
end of the ice. She set up her stool once more and tried
again to cut her hole. The voice, now sounding irritated,
came once more:'THERE ARE NO FISH UNDERTHE ICE!!"She
stopped, looked skyward, and said,"Is that you, Lord?"The
voice replied, "NO, THIS IS THE MANAGER OF THE ICE RINK." ,

GASPARILLA
^[.MARINA.] ]k


As a busy working charter captain, my boat has
to be available and ready to go when I need it.
Here at Gasparilla Marina, I have everything I
need to make sure that happens. My boat is
securely stored on a lift, but I have easy access
to it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I can get fuel,
bait and supplies at competitive prices right
here. I love not having to trailer it anywhere to
have work done; the marina's service depart-
ment takes care of everything. Plus I have quick
access to the area's best fishing spots. I can't
imagine keeping my boat anywhere else.

/ Gag grouper season
closes Dec. 3.


Thanksgiving marks the unofficial
beginning of the winter season in South-
west Florida. Some part-year residents
have been trickling into the area for
weeks, as evidenced by the noticeably
heavier traffic on our roads and by the
growing checkout lines in our stores. But
the majority of our winter residents are
yet to return from the north. What's kicked
tourist season into gear are the throngs of
short-term visitors attracted by the long
Thanksgiving holiday weekend who are
now in town, and many of them hope to
augment their holiday plans with a little
fishing while they're here. Here are a few
updates on the fishing scene that might
prove useful to our visitors:

SNOOK SNATCHIN'
Snook fishing is always possible, but this
year it's extra special since our first open
season in over three years lasts three more
days. (Snook season closes at midnight
Saturday night). More good news: reports
have been pretty good during the first 2
1/2 months of the three month season
as the fish stock seems to have bene-
fited from the multi-year protection


from harvest. Even more good news: the
weather in Southwest Florida so far this
fall has been mild, meaning that water
temperatures are well up into the comfort
range for snook, and the bite has been
especially good in the last few weeks.
Snook are now on the move, with many of
them having left the beaches and headed
inland toward the rivers and canals.

MACKEREL MAYHEM
The mild fall weather that has kept
snook active has also benefitted the
mackerel fisheries, but in a different
manner. Since there has been very little
cold, blustery winter weather in the Gulf
of Mexico this fall, the southbound schools
of migrating Spanish mackerel and king
mackerel have been tarrying along the
coast and the runs are later than usual
this year. The result: A fishery that often
peaks earlier in the fall in the waters
of Southwest Florida seems to be really
cranking up right now just in time for
our Thanksgiving visitors to get a shot
at experiencing the red hot action of a
mackerel blitz. Spanish mackerel have
been blasting bait along the beaches and


inside the lower Harbor, while kings have
been just a bit deeper, starting in about 20
feet of water.

GROUPER GRABBIN'
Gag season remains open until the
first part of next week, then will close
until next summer. Gag catches have
been mixed this year. When the season
first opened in July, gag action was good,
with many anglers finding quality fish
in relatively shallow water offshore -
often within sight of the beaches. Since
the inshore gag fishery is usually so-so in
the summer and then really improves in
the fall, many anglers thought that the
strong summer fishing meant that the
prospects for this fall were great. Oddly,
during the past month or so, the inshore
fishing seems to have slowed down just
when it was expected to peak. Some
quality fish are being caught, but not in
the numbers that were seen two months
ago. Perhaps the gag show is running late
like the mackerel run and will kick in soon.
It would have to happen pretty quickly
though, since the season is only open a
few more days (gag season is open until


midnight Monday night in federal waters
and until midnight Tuesday night in state
waters).

SHEEPSHEAD SHOWN'
It's pretty early in the year, but sheeps-
head are starting to bunch up already. No
one knows why sheepshead would start
their winter run earlier than normal in a
year when so many other fish seem to be
running late, but nonetheless, there are
groups of sheepshead now forming around
canal mouths and tidal creeks. A long,
strong winter sheepshead run would be
much appreciated by local anglers. After
all, the sheepies provide fun fishing during
the most blustery winter days when some
of our other local fish hunker down and
become difficult to catch.
Let's go fishing!

many mysteries of Mother

and I was at Bayshore Live Oak Park flipping
over rocks near the water's edge looking
for mud crabs in advance of a trip targeting
sheepshead the following day. As I made
my way down the shore toward Portofino
restaurant, I noticed a pretty big fish carcass
had washed up.
I was still around 15 yards away from the
fish, and my first instinct told me it was a
tarpon. On closer inspection, however, I real-
ized it was a shark. And not just any old shark.
Blacktips and bull sharks are fairly common at
any time of year in the upper Harbor, but this
was a hammerhead.
Bending down next to the fish spooked
a mess of flies off the carcass, and by the
smell I could tell this shark had been dead
for a couple days. But all things considered,
it looked to be in pretty good shape. The only
visible sign of a possible battle with an angler
was the blood coming from its mouth that
had formed a small pool on the shore. It was
a female great hammerhead, about 40 to 50
inches in length, and maybe 30 to 40 pounds.
Reports of red tide in the area and
subsequent sightings of hundreds of dead fish
initially prompted me to believe this shark had
been a casualty of Karenia brevis, the organism
responsible for red tide. But while mullet and
bottom-dwelling fish like grunts and catfish
are usually rather susceptible to red tide,
this was an apex predator. A fast-swimming
shark like that could have easily escaped the
clutches of red tide.
That leads me to believe its death might
have been a product of catch-and-release
gone wrong.
Hammerheads are notoriously fragile after
a fight, and even with careful handling, revival
and subsequent release, these sharks can die.
So, while catching a hammerhead from a pier

For starters, a battle with a shark this size
from a pier can be a lengthy ordeal, no matter
what class of tackle an angler is using. And
that's strike one against the shark. The release
also becomes a problem from a pier. Say this
shark was caught from one of the Bayshore
piers. If so, the angler would have had to walk
it all the way down the pier to the shore to
have any chance of reviving it in the water. By
that time, the shark could have been hooked
for as long as 45 minutes, reducing its chance
of making it. The other scenario is that the
shark was simply thrown back over the side of
the pier upon release. Definitely not a good
scenario for the shark.
There's also a chance the shark was caught
somewhere else in the Harbor from a boat
and was carried in by the incoming tide. If
the fish was disoriented upon release, it could
have easily wandered into the shallows before
passing away.
Those are my best guesses, anyway. But
that's not where this story ends.
After I found the shark, I gave WaterLine
Publisher Josh Olive a call, letting him know
what I had discovered. Josh, in turn, called
the local FWC office. An FWC researcher came
and retrieved the carcass so a necropsy could
be performed. I'm hoping the results, which
were not available at press time, will give us
a better idea of what happened to this shark.
Maybe it died from an infection or some other
malady-- who knows?
Regardless of the outcome, it was a sad
sight to see such a magnificent creature
lying dead on the shore. I much prefer them
swimming free in the Harbor, or on the end of
my line.
Until next time, hook em up and fight em
hard. Fish on, fellow anglers.

After the season I've had, I looked back
on the year and realized that I had it pretty
good. Then I stopped myself and said,"hold
on, you only cashed one check.":' Now, I did
finish one or two out of the money in almost
every tournament I fished in this year, but
I realized it's not always about winning
money or cashing checks. Sometimes it's
simply about hanging out with the folks
from the club.
I will say that we have a pretty good
group of people in our small club. We only
have roughly 24 teams as members, but
we have a group that really gets along
well with each other. There's no animosity
among members we have one meeting
at the beginning of the season to select the
lakes we want to fish, and from there we
simply go fish. The entry fees are kept to a
minimum, so it's affordable for members to
go to the monthly tournaments. What more
could you ask for?
At one time, I was a member of the
biggest bass club in the world, and fished
in their tournaments religiously. I probably
made more friends and learned more about
fishing in that club than any other club I've
ever been with. The club I'm part of now is
much the same thing, except that it's not
one of the biggest clubs around. But fishing
is still fishing, and friendships are still
friendships. Looking back, both clubs have
offered me the same thing some compet-
itive fishing and some good friends.
I satisfy my competitive nature during the
monthly tournaments, which is my greatest
reason for continuing to be a part of a club
- not to mention that my wife and I enjoy
spending time outdoors together. The work
weeks seem to go by so fast, now that we've
had to reset our clocks. There isn't any time
to get out during the week and do anything
anyway.
I know bass clubs are not for everyone. It
took some time for my friends to originally
get me to join a club with them. For me, it
was the best thing I could've ever done. I
was surprised at how diverse the club was
in terms of the styles of fishing. I have to
admit, club fishing taught me tremendous
amounts about catching bass. Now, I share
some of those same techniques that I've
learned with new members into our smaller
club. It's nice to hear that someone went
out, tried a technique that you showed


them, and then had success with it them-
selves.
If you've never considered joining a bass
club, that's fine. If the thought has crossed
your mind once or twice and you're unsure
because you may not know anyone in the
club, take my advice and join the club. Don't
be afraid to introduce yourself to anglers
in the club. More often than not, current
members are usually very willing to talk to
new members and make them feel welcome.
I remember the ritual we had with the
Lakeland Bassmasters when new members
came into the club. All members had to be
voted into the club, and we would make
them go outside while attending members
would "vote" on their application. But this
came with one hitch. All bass anglers have
a fishing skeleton or two in their closet,
and more often than not, someone knows
about it. Well, new members had to have
a sponsor, so it was up to the sponsor to
have one story that they could relay to the
club and have our president razz the new
member with while he was being accepted.
This was oftentimes the highlight of
those meetings. It gave the new member a
chance to be embarrassed right off the bat,
and oftentimes broke the ice, allowing them
to meet other members within the club.
Don't let this scare you away from joining a
club. Not all clubs do this, just our deranged
group up here in Polk County. But you owe it
to yourself to try out a club if it's something
you've thought about in the past. I can only
tell you from experience how many friends
I've made, how much fishing technique I've
learned and how many bass I've caught from
it.
If you're considering it, now is the time.
Most clubs have come to an end for the
season and are looking for new members.
You can always find out about bass clubs in
the local papers. Most of them advertise their
upcoming tournaments in the sports section,
or you can surely look them up online. What
have you got to lose? You may meet a new
friend and learn more about bass fishing than
you could've ever imagined.

Wow Thanksgiving already? It was
summer a couple weeks ago. If you're not too
sleepy after stuffing yourself with turkey, let's
jump back into our review of Southwest Florida
saltwater fishing basics. We got you pretty well
outfitted last week, so this time we'll look at
some actual fishing information.
One of the hardest things to figure out is
where to find fish. The important thing is that
the predators need someplace to ambush
prey. That's how the game is played, and if you
want to catch fish, you've got to understand it.
The good news if you already have freshwater
fishing experience, that will carry over very well.
If you've ever fished for bass, you know they like
to hang out around structure brushpiles,
dropoffs and rocky areas. Redfish, snook and
mangrove snapper are the same way, it's just
that our local structure is different. Overhanging
mangrove trees, sandbar dropoffs and pilings
are great places to look. Seatrout, flounder and
ladyfish also like structure, but they prefer to
hang out over mixed sand and grass.
The most popular bait for inshore saltwater
fishing is shrimp. There's a really good reason
for that: Pretty much any predatory fish eats
shrimp, and they'll eat them live or dead. For
fish, shrimp are pretty much like potato chips
are for us irresistible. Small fish are also
great bait. Some, like pinfish and whitebait,
are usually used live; others, like mullet and
sardines, are more popular as cutbait. Shrimp
are relatively cheap to buy live or frozen. Fish
are available at the bait shops, but whitebait
you'll have to net yourself (and they're tough
to find in winter).
If you prefer to use artificial lures, most of
the bass lures you're used to throwing will
catch snook, reds and trout. Topwater plugs are
a standard lure for all three, and spinnerbaits
do pretty well on redfish. Soft plastic baits are
very popular, though we usually use jigheads
instead of worm hooks and work the baits a
little faster than is typical for bass worms. If
you're used to throwing a spoon, you can catch
almost any fish out there. Gold or silver spoons
in eighth- or quarter-ounce sizes are fantastic
- in fact, some local anglers hardly ever use
anything else.
No matter what bait or lure you're using,
you can't just throw it out there and expect to
hook a fish. You need to put it where there are
fish to see it. If you're fishing from a pier, don't
throw your bait out onto bare sand. Instead,
try fishing it below your feet. The pier itself is a
great fish attractor, and you'd be shocked if you
could see what's swimming below you. If you're
fishing the flats or structure from a boat, cast to


fishy-looking areas or places where you see fish
actually moving around or attacking bait.
The most visible fish in the canals and on
the flats is one you probably can't catch. Mullet
frequently jump clear out of the water, and the
sight of those leaping fish gets many newbie
anglers excited. But mullet are vegetarians
(at least most of the time) and will only very
rarely take a baited hook. Still, it's not always
a bad idea to cast to mullet on the flats. Some-
times redfish will travel with mullet, waiting
to grab any crabs or shrimp stirred up by the
mullet rooting in the bottom sediments.
Being able to identify your catch is very
important. There are literally hundreds offish
species that you might find on the end of your
line here, and there are laws or regulations
that apply to many of them. If you are catching
and releasing your fish, no problem. But if
you want to bring fish home for the table, you
need to know not only what you've caught
but what laws apply to that particular fish. We
don't have nearly enough space to cover all of
that, but I'll hit some high points for you.
There's no closed season for redfish and trout,
but snook are closed from Dec. 1 until the end
of February (and again from May 1 to Aug. 31).
All three of them are subject to size and bag
limits. Trout must be at least 15 inches long. You
can keep four a day, but you can have only one
longer than 20 inches. Redfish must measure 18
to 27 inches, and you're allowed only one a day.
Snook must be between 28 and 33 inches, and
you can keep only one of those too.
All of these fish are measured by squeezing
the tail and measuring the total length. Some
other fish, such as mackerel, are measured to
the center of the tail fork. If you want to know
which species get measure which way, you'll
need to pick up a copy of the state's latest
regulations booklet. You should be able to get
one at your local tackle shop.
I'm going to offer one more fish ID tip,
because it's something that can get you in
real trouble. If you catch a grouper, be sure to
check the tail. Goliath grouper (aka jewfish)
are the only local grouper with a rounded
paddle-shaped tail, and they must be released
immediately. All other grouper are subject
to strict regulations that you need to follow,
but getting caught with a prohibited species
would be really bad.
There's so much more to know, but what
we've covered the last couple weeks will
certainly get you started. To learn more, keep
reading WaterLine every week, join a fishing
club, and spend some time at the tackle shops
chatting. You're never going to learn it all -


I've been doing this for 25 years and I'm still
learning new stuff all the time but that's
not a bad thing. It's all part of what keeps us
going out on the water.

Duck Dynasty is one of the most-watched
shows on TV right now. Because of its
popularity, there's probably going to be an
explosion of interest in duck hunting this year.
That's OK with me, but I'd really like to see
people doing it right. I know a bunch of people
are going to be doing it wrong, and to help you
avoid becoming one of them, I've got some
tips to get you started.
Waterfowl season is open right now, but
it closes Dec. 2-Dec. 6. After that, it stays
open through Jan. 26. You are allowed to
hunt on most bodies of water that you have
legal access to, with exceptions being in
areas where firearms aren't allowed and on
wildlife management areas, which have their
own regulations. In addition to your hunting
license, you need a federal duck stamp, which
you can get at the post office.
Shooting a bird on the wing is realistic
only with a shotgun. Don't even think about
using a rifle or pistol; it's stupid and it's illegal.
If you use a pump or semiautomatic gun,
it must be incapable of holding more than
three cartridges (one in the chamber, two in
the magazine), which can be accomplished
by installing a plug. Most duck hunters use
12-gauge guns, though you can use a 10,16
or 20 if you want to. A .410 can bring down a
duck, but you better be a good shot. By law,
you must use non-toxic shot, which is usually
steel or bismuth no lead allowed. If you're
using non-toxic shot for the first time, it's a
good idea to pattern the gun and get a feel for
how it shoots with non-lead ammo.
Being able to identify your targets is crucial.
You might think a duck is a duck is a duck.
Nope wrong answer. You need to get some
education before you go out and start blasting
away at any old duck. There are 12 or 15
species of ducks that you are likely to see in a
day on the water, and at least another dozen
that are possibilities. And the regulations are
different in some cases, very different. For
example, you can harvest six black-bellied
whistling ducks a day. But you can harvest
only one fulvous whistling duck. When they're
flying overhead at dawn, they sure do look a
lot alike. When the lawman comes to check
your game bag, they don't look alike anymore.
If all you can identify are mallards, pintails
and wood ducks, you need to study up. The
Ducks Unlimited website at ducks.org has some
great high-quality images that are good for ID
purposes. When you're trying to ID ducks on
the wing, knowing what they look like up close
is less useful. A great resource I used a lot is
Ducks at a Distance. I read it as an actual paper
book, but now they have a website, which you
can see at http://on.doi.gov/HX3uyC.
The first clue I look for is size. I know when I
see a little duck, it's probably a teal. If it looks
big, it's probably a mottled duck. In between
is everything else, so color becomes more
important. If it's black-and-white, it's usually


a bluebill or a ringneck. This is another one
that can get you in trouble you can have six
ringnecks but only two bluebills, and on the
wing they look all but identical. My solution: If
I have two bluebills in the bag, I don't shoot at
any black-and-white ducks.
Shape is also a clue, especially the shape of
the tail and wings. Wood ducks and scaup have
squared-off tails; pintails have pointy tails.
Wigeon and gadwalls both have wings that are
more pointed than a mallard or mottled duck.
This also matters when it comes time to sit
down to dinner. Some ducks just taste better
than others. Why shoot six ringnecks and have
a meal that's only serviceable when you could
shoot six teal and have a really nice dinner?
Teal and wood ducks are the best eating ducks
we have, then come mottled and whistling
ducks, then ringnecks and bluebills. Mergan-
sers and coots aren't really considered ducks,
but they're way down at the bottom of the
"bring home for dinner" list.
Shooting ducks while they're sitting on
the water is not illegal, but it is considered
unsporting. I know, I know it's hard to
shoot a moving target. That's what makes
duck hunting a sport, though. I generally
recommend taking the shot when the ducks
are coming in for a landing, and from no
more than about 35 yards away. Think about
it: When they're coming in to land, they
aren't rocketing past at 50 miles an hour.
They're braking, getting ready to hit the
water, and offering you a perfect opportu-
nity to make a clean kill. If you try to take
potshots at birds whizzing overhead 60 yards
up, you might kill a few. Chances are, though,
you'll injure more birds than you actually
harvest. It's a wasteful practice.
It's definitely harder to get birds to land in
front of you. That's where the actual "hunting"
part comes in you have to fool them with a
properly set up decoy spread, getting them to
let down their guard and come right in. Decoys
are really the key, and setting them up well is
not as much an art form as some folks make it
out to be, but there are a few tricks to it. Look
at ducks on the water. They don't sit in a J or
V shape, even though some guys recommend
you set up your decoys that way. I put out two
sets of decoys in a random grouping and then
set up in the middle. The ducks will land in the
open area, and that's where I'll be waiting.
Anything you get wrong will tip the ducks
off and they'll keep on going. You have to hide
yourself well, because ducks are notoriously
sharp-eyed. And remember, a duck that makes
it to Florida has dodged hundreds of other
hunters since leaving Canada or South Dakota.
They're onto you and your tricks. This is what
hunting is all about: Outwitting a cunning
creature. Otherwise, you might as well just
go buy a domestic duck at the small animal
auction, toss him up in the air, and shoot him.
How very sporting.

If duck hunting sounds like something
you'd like to try, you really need to go with an
experienced duck hunter for the first few times.
This is great if you have duck-hunting friends,
but if you don't have that advantage, a guide
is your next-best option. I happen to know a
guide who knows a bit about duck hunting. OK,
it's me. I'm not usually one to plug myself like
this, but I know I can actually be helpful in this
case. If you want to learn a little more about
the right way to hunt ducks, give me a call.

You can probably think of a few products
that are top-notch but have ridiculous names.
This is one of them. The FrogLube system of
firearms care and maintenance products were
designed to clean, lubricate and protect all
parts of your guns. Application is simple and
will be discussed shortly.
FrogLube, developed by Navy SEALs, is
all-natural, nontoxic and formulated using
food-grade components. FrogLube is also a
USDA-certified biobased product. In fact, it
was the first firearms product of this type
to achieve this certification. FrogLube can
be applied without gloves, special filtration
systems or devices, as some petroleum-based
products require. There is no special equip-
ment needed for safety issues, since it can
be ingested without problems (although
I won't be spreading it on my toast). And
FrogLube has a pleasant minty wintergreen
smell, instead of strong chemical fumes that
are hazardous to our health. If you're still
concerned, there's an MSDS sheet available
online at http://bit.ly/161llzy
FrogLube is heat-activated and will dissolve
carbon, lead, rust, copper, and remove built-up
deposits of dirt or powder residue. Rust
and corrosion are dissolved on contact with
FrogLube paste. The liquid formula will do
the same job with light brushing and time.
FrogLube is able to be absorbed into metals
that are heated to 100 to 120 degrees Fahren-
heit, and will seal the metal from the elements
when properly applied with low heat.
For best results, follow the product directions
and your firearm's recommended cleaning
instructions. Clean it twice: Once to get it
truly clean, then again to seal the metal fully.
Once the gun has been treated, you will notice
better performance, smoother functioning and
increased accuracy. As a bonus, the gun will be
much easier to clean nothing sticks!
Here at Higher Power Outfitters, we use
a two-stage ultrasonic cleaning system. We
exclusively use FrogLube in our tanks, hence
the minty smell everyone notices when
walking into the gun shop. We have success-
fully cleaned a lot of guns that have had less-
than-ideal maintenance regimens, and in a lot
of cases we've brought an old, rusted gun back
to near-perfect mechanical working condition
using this process.


While many of us use FrogLube on firearms,
it can be used on just about anything. We have
people who have used it in rods, reels, outboard
engines, car parts and even around the house.
The business is owned by a service-disabled
veteran, which is a plus in my book.
FrogLube is one of the best choices when
you're prepping a gun for long-term storage.
Re-clean the firearm for storage. After wiping
the gun dry, apply a thick coat of FrogLube
paste to all metal parts. Apply a light coat to
plastic, polymer or rubber parts to protect the
finish and prevent dry-rot damage. If your
gun has wooden furniture, be cautious. Test a
part that's not usually visible before applying
FrogLube to wood parts. If the paste doesn't
affect the finish, apply it like wax, leaving a
light coat on the wood. Otherwise, apply the
liquid formula like furniture oil, leaving a light
coat after wiping down. Generously coat the
warm bore and then let it cool. Run a patch
through the bore to remove excess dirty paste.
Apply a decent amount of paste to a clean
patch and coat the bore very well so that all
surfaces of the bore are coated with a visible
layer of paste. When the weapon is coated
with FrogLube, it is ready to be stored for years
in the armory inside of crates or exposed in
a vault, as per standard armory protocol for
extended or long-term storage.
When you take the gun out of storage, wipe
off the excess FrogLube, then apply light heat
to remove embedded FrogLube. Clean the bore
with a brush followed by patches. Than do a
regular complete cleaning, perform a function
check and test fire. The firearm should look as
good as it did when it went into storage and
function better than ever.
My Adcor Defense piston-driven AR-15 the
rifle was stored in my safe for almost a year.
After taking it out shooting, I wiped it down
with a microfiber cloth. The barrel and action
were easily cleaned in less than half the time it
would have taken me with any other cleaning
products. I promise your gun will never func-
tion better!

S.UMSUE*..IfUUME E--.IIUUEU..MOEE,


Kayaking is one of those things you just need to experi-
ence to understand.
By now, we've all seen them around. They're in our
canals, our lakes, our Harbor and even in the Gulf. There
was a time when you could go an entire winter without
seeing a kayak. Those days are long gone.
And the growing popularity of kayaking makes good
sense. The obvious reason is the price. Not everybody can
afford to go out and drop a savings account on a new boat.
But if you do your research, you can find a used kayak for a
couple hundred bucks. Sure, you cand drop a pretty penny
on a fancy, decked out kayak, but you don't have to.
Kayaking also provides a terrific workout without
really thinking that it's a workout! Think about it.
You use your arms, shoulders, lats, abs and
obliques. If you don't believe it, try
kayaking a couple of miles,
then turn around
and come
back.
But you
don't
have to be
a muscle-
builder to
kayak. Today's
models are
much lighter
in weight than
the older proto- types.
Even the paddles today are
made from light- weight composite
material. And the durability? I've dragged mine
over asphalt, oyster beds and just about everything else.
I've tossed them into the bed of my truck. Sure they get


scratched up, but they're not going to break or crack
too easily.
But other than price and reliability, kayaking is
just different than boating. You can take them just
about anywhere. Fresh water or salt water, all you
need is a place to launch, then you're off. And
any typical public boat ramp is good enough.
You can even get adventurous and launch from
places off the beaten path.
The difference between fresh and
saltwater kayaking is enormous. Exploring
fresh water like lakes and rivers is typically
all about the scenery above the water,
although some fresh water is clear as glass.
Salt water tends to be more clear, but not always. It
just depends where you go, and there are so many places.
The flats of our Harbor are fun, and relatively safe. If
need be, you can always get out of your kayak in the
flats, as the depth is generally a few feet deep or so.
S And going through the mangroves is something you
just have to experience for yourself. The different
types of birds are unbelievable. It's like it's just you
and them out there. Makes you think what the
area must have been like way before humans
made their presence known. There are also
many types of sealife to see. Manatees, fish and
crustaceans are just a few things that will catch
your eye while kayaking.
You can also kayak off the beaches. The waves and
currents will be a little stronger out there, so look into
weather conditions before you set out. You can go inland
to lakes and rivers. Again, be aware of the current. It's
easy kayaking with the current of the river. It's not so easy
kayaking into it on the way back. Many people make plans
to have transportation at both the starting point and the


Fresh or salt water, you can
always go fishing. I
always bring
ra pole
with me.
Always.
Fishing
has ofrom a kayak
fro a ka yaR t takes a little
getting used
Sto, but once you
Sget the hang of it,
you can do many
things you can't
from a boat. The main
advantage is access.
You can slip through
narrow passages in the
mangroves or under structure like docks and bridges. I
have a small and light rod and reel combo that has worked
well. I've seen a few guys out there with some equipment
that's just too big for a kayak. You can get kayaks these
days with rod holders and storage compartments. It makes
things a lot easier. The obvious disadvantage of fishing
from a kayak is that it takes a little longer to get to your
destination than while on a boat. But if you end up kayak
fishing, you already knew that. Another disadvantage
is that a large fish may drag you around a little bit. A
blacktip shark gave me a ride for 20 minutes, but in the
end I got it right up to my kayak. It's one of my favorite
fishing memories.
So if you've ever been curious about kayaking, give it a
go. Make some of your own memories.

Red tide killing fish in the Harbor


By Josh Olive
WaterLine Publisher
Red tide, which has not been a problem in
Charlotte Harbor since late March, showed
up in local inshore waters this past week.
Concentrations of Karenia brevis, the Florida
red tide organism, are generally more common
along Gulf beaches and the Intracoastal
Waterway, where salinity is high and steady.
In the Charlotte Harbor estuary, which is less
salty, K. brevis usually doesn't thrive. However,
the first major fish kill of this red tide bloom
has been reported in the mid and upper areas
of the Harbor.
On Nov. 22, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission researchers discovered
several hundred dead and dying fish stretching
from Pirate Harbor on the east side to Cape
Haze on the west side. Several boaters who
were in that area reported eye irritation and
coughing classic symptoms of exposure to
airborne brevetoxins, which get into the atmo-
sphere just like salty sea tang does. Fortu-
nately for the boaters, most people have a
relatively mild reaction to red tide toxins. Fish
and marine mammals do not, and if they're
not able to get out of the bloom area, they will
sicken and may die.
If you look at the fish killed by a red tide
outbreak, you'll notice there are usually few
fast and powerful swimmers among the dead.
Most of the victims are fish that hang around
a specific territory or swim slowly. Grunts,
snapper, grouper, cowfish, hogfish, burrfish,
catfish and other homebodies and slowpokes
usually die right where they lived. Mackerel,
jacks, sharks and other fast pelagic species are
less common in the dead fish rafts. But any fish
can fall victim. A couple years ago, it was large
numbers of huge bull redfish. They washed
up on Gasparilla Island by the thousands. And
it's not just fish. Last year we lost a bunch of
manatees.


Everyone wants to know how bad this bloom
will get. But no one knows, and any forecasts
are just guesses. The cold front that came
through this week should help keep red tide
out of the Harbor a strong and steady north
or northeast wind tends to push the bloom out
into the Gulf. It's still not good, but at least it's
not right in our backyards. It's possible that
the bloom might dissipate over the next few
days. It's happened before. On the flip side, it's
possible we might deal with this for months to
come. That has also happened before.
We don't even understand what causes
K. brevis to suddenly burst forth in a bloom.
It seems to lay low in summer and then get
active at the end of the rainy season. But
is it rain that triggers its revival? Is it water
temperature dropping? Maybe it's the reduced
day length, or the flatter angle of sunlight.
Whatever it is, red tide is a naturally
occurring phenomenon. But then there's the
other big question: Are we somehow making it
worse? K. brevis is a dinoflagellate (think of it
as algae that can swim). Algal blooms tend to
be worse in areas where we dump nutrients.
Nutrient-rich water flows through the Caloo-
sahatchee River all during the rainy season,
and then a red tide bloom appears in the same
general area in fall. It seems like there should
be a correlation somehow. It also seems like
we spend lots of money on red tide research
and have very little hard fact to show for it.
Although there's currently nothing you or I
can do to stop red tide, we can certainly limit
our own exposure. That means avoiding areas
where high concentrations of K. brevis have
been reported. Every Friday, the FWC issues a
red tide report that indicates where red tide
has been found during the week. To see it
online, go to http://bit.ly/lbvl5VJ. You can also
get current info by phone; call 866-300-9399.
However, even that information might not be
enough for Charlotte Harbor boaters.
If you look at the map shown here, you'll


see there are a whole bunch of sampling sites
where water is collected for analysis. However,
there are no sites in upper or middle Char-
lotte Harbor. It's great that we have regular
sampling going on along the beaches and in
Gasparilla Sound, but the fish kill reported
Nov. 22 might have escaped official notice if
FWRI researchers hadn't been in the area at
the time. Does it bother you that there's no


one looking out for red tide near Burnt Store,
Pirate Harbor, Alligator Creek, in the upper
Harbor or anywhere along the east and west
walls? It bothers me. I'll bet if FWRI director Gil
McRae got some phone calls, he might try to
figure out a way we could get some samples
taken. You can reach his office at 727-896-8626
or email gil.mcrae@MyFWC.com. Remember,
squeaky wheels get greased.

I'mon my way back from an extended
hunting vacation, and it's been a wonderful
and unusual experience. While my shooting
wasn't the best, my successes was awesome
because I learned a lot in a humbling
sort of way. There were some big deer up
north, and they seemed to be teasing me.
They refused to allow me any shots I was
comfortable with. I saw huge deer from the
time I got up to Wisconsin until the time I
left. The biggest one came right to me, but
it was so early in the morning that I didn't
have enough light. At least that's what I
told myself. The lessons were valuable.
I went to learn, and I learned a lot. I now
understand more about those big deer, and
made comparisons with our fish. Here's a
secret that was shown to me on that last
evening. The deer mass-gathered into the
places with the least pressure. I knew that
the northwest corner was well-hunted last
year, so I didn't hunt it hard. I also learned
that the does often hid in thick brush where
humans avoided. But you can guarantee the
big bucks knew where the breeding females
were hiding. So I did end up with some
meat, and so many lessons to remember. So,
I translated those lessons into fishing.
Just because one spot is traditionally
great doesn't mean it's the only place to


go hunt or fish. Fish will react just like
those deer and learn new patterns. They
adjust to survive. If they don't stay ahead
of predators, they perish. Of course, we
release many of our fish we catch, but it's
still survival to them, and that's the point.
Preparation and practice are also essen-
tial to success. I'm just learning about bow
and crossbow hunting, so I lacked adequate
accuracy at a distance. I'm comfortable at
20 to 30 yards, but not much more than
that. The little deer came close, but the big
ones were much more cautious, staying
much farther away. It was just like the
bigger fish down here. They've been around
the block a few times and have learned to
survive. Those best able to adapt are the
winners deer or fish!
My northern experience will help me be
a smarter hunter in the field, and a better
angler in our waters. With winter redfishing
coming up, the stalking practice will help
remind me to slow down. The faster we push,
the faster fish run. Also, as I've mentioned
many timed before, scared fish don't bite.
It was very nice to sit and observe the scene
from the minute I woke up. The crack of
dawn is my favorite time of day. It's quiet and
calm so you can see and hear all movements.
Listening to the owls, turkeys and flocks of


Canada geese broadcast the new dawn was
memorable. Some of the colors of the red
sunrises and sunsets were brilliant. A huge
storm boiled in and blasted many nearby with
tornadoes, but we just got some eerie sounds
from a rumbling sky. It sounded like several
jets racing around in circles as the clouds
simply boiled out of control.
So what's going on with the red tide
mess right now down here? We used to
get blooms in the summers, and now they
seem to be reversed. It seems red tide is
now starting when they used to end. Has
it adapted or mutated to be cold-tolerant
now? While I do understand the need for
strict fishery management, it's also clear
we can't control Mother Nature. Fish and
marine life will stay within the balances
she dictates! I'm just pointing out the
obvious here. This is one way of population
balance that is out of our control.
This brings up another lesson I learned.
How can we enjoy the great outdoors
without harming it? The runoff from roads,
gardens, yards and farms contains nutrients
that feed red tide. We always seem to get
problems after rainy seasons. It's not rocket
science that fertilizer enhances growth of
organisms. Runoff fertilizes the waters and
feeds the organisms.


Red tide can cause some nasty devasta-
tion. It would be great to save all the fish
that die from red tide, but how? If we can't
harvest fish affected by red tide, it would
be great to remove them to prevent the
stink.
I do want to point out that as much as I
constructively criticize the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission, and
while we have much room to learn and
improve, we are ahead of the state I was
just in. The deer permit is only good in one
county, it's $500 for bow and gun. But you
have to drive almost 100 miles round-trip
to check them in with state officials. They
also spend money to hire sharpshooters
to kill deer rather than let hunters enjoy
longer seasons and larger harvests! Be
thankful for the great folks we have in
Florida doing their best to protect and
manage our resources. Enjoy time with your
family and take someone fishing. Captain

Soon Florida anglers will no longer be
required to have and use a venting tool
when fishing for reef fish in Gulf of Mexico
state waters.
During its recent meeting, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion removed the requirement in Gulf
state waters, making state regulations
consistent with rules in federal waters. By
removing this rule, anglers will now have
the freedom to determine how to best
maximize survival of released reef fish
using devices they feel are appropriate,
depending on the circumstances.
The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management
Council removed the requirement to have
and use a venting tool in Gulf federal
waters earlier this year.
These changes will take effect as soon
as possible. Another notice will be issued
to let the public know when these changes
take effect.
When fish are brought quickly to the
surface from deep water, the change in
pressure can cause gases within the fish's
swim bladder to expand. This condition is
called barotrauma and can cause damage
to internal organs and reduce the likeli-
hood a fish will survive when returned to
the water. Typically, fish suffering from


barotrauma must be treated if they are to
survive and swim back down to deep water.
Venting tools are used to treat barotrauma
by allowing gases to escape from a fish's
body cavity. Descending devices, which
bring fish back down to deeper waters, are
another, more recently developed option
that can now also be used to increase
survival rates among fish with barotrauma.
Maximizing post-release survival of fish is
important in marine fisheries management
because it means more fish survive to
potentially reproduce and be harvested in
the future. While venting tools can still be
a useful way to increase chances of survival
after being released, fish do not always
need to be vented.
Venting tools were required in Gulf state
and federal waters since 2008. This require-
ment was intended to increase survival rates
of released red snapper, but applied to all
species of Gulf reef fish. These tools are not
required in Atlantic state or federal waters.
The use of non-stainless steel, non-offset
circle hooks and dehooking devices will
still be required in state and federal Gulf
waters when fishing for reef fish. These
tools minimize handling times for reef
fish, which aids in survival of the fish upon
release.

S Many of the folks who transplant
themselves from cities in the frozen north
to subtropical suburban Florida are not
prepared to deal with our local wildlife. We
Shave snakes, bugs, frogs, bobcats, coyotes
and all sorts of other creatures that insist
Son sharing our yards, and sometimes our
* homes. This is truly part of Southwest
SFlorida's charm, but it can be hard for some
of our newer arrivals to see it that way -
/ especially when one of our most visible
Mammals announces its arrival by pushing
Over a trash can and scattering garbage
Halfway down the block.
Raccoons can be a big pile of trouble, but
j their bad rap is mostly our fault. They're not
at all picky about what they eat, so almost
any food scraps you throw out are attractive
Sto a hungry'coon. In natural surroundings,
where there are no tempting trash cans to
Rummage through, raccoons eat a meat-
based omnivorous diet. They're often found
near water, where they'll wade belly-deep
to collect crabs, crayfish, clams and insect
larvae. It was once believed that raccoons
produce little saliva, since they're often
seen dunking their food in water. This is
now known to be untrue, and wild raccoons
rarely exhibit this behavior. However, they
do sometimes wet their front paws to soften
the skin and increase their tactile senses.
Actually, calling them paws isn't fair.
Raccoons are always reaching for things

and examining them without looking at
them. If you watch one feeding, it will often
stare directly at you while it eats. You might
think it's not paying attention to what it's
doing, but raccoon paws are very sensitive
and serve almost as a second pair of eyes.
Because of the way they use them, it's
more accurate to call them hands. In fact,
the word raccoon is an Anglicization of the
Powhatan Indian word arathkone, meaning
"he who scratches with his hands."
The animals we tend to have the biggest
problems with are the ones that are most able
to easily adapt to living near us. Raccoons
definitely fall into this category: They eat our
scraps or food put out for other animals, they
find refuge in our attic spaces or sheds, and
they easily habituate to human activity. In
some older neighborhoods, generations of
raccoons have grown up around people and
become dependent. Their behavior is different
from that of rural raccoons, and since young
raccoons learn how to find food by following
their mothers, a suburban'coon has difficulty
adapting to a life in the woods.
For a raccoon well-versed in finding
dinner in the wild, Florida offers a bounty.
In addition to the seafood they love, 'coons
also eat snakes, lizards, frogs, bird eggs and
nestlings, grasshoppers, earthworms, black-
berries, beautyberries and acorns. They'll
also raid gardens and fields for many types
of fruits and veggies, with watermelons,


summer squashes and sweet citrus among
their particular favorites. Keeping raccoons
away from your growing produce is not easy
- they're smart, they don't scare easily and
they have those clever hands.
In suburban areas, coons apply those
same advantages to a slightly different situ-
ation. Fortunately, our local waste manage-
ment system is finally outsmarting them.
The standardized green plastic bins we now
use are designed to keep pests out, and they
do a very good job of stumping the raccoons.
Old-school metal cans were easy they
were top-heavy, and the lids popped right
off. The new bins are much more stable and
have a long hinged lid that is nearly impos-
sible to pry up if you're sitting on it.
Keeping them out of the trash makes
them much better neighbors, but there are
other ways raccoons can be troublesome.
If you put out feeders for birds or squirrels,
expect to be the target of a raccoon raid
(they love corn and sunflowers). And feeding
cats or dogs outdoors is a great way to
attract raccoons to your yard. When I was a
kid, we had outdoor cats. It was a common
sight to see a cat on one side of the dish and
a 'coon on the other, both happily crunching
away. But raccoons are wild animals, and as
such they almost always have diseases and
parasites that can be transmitted to your
pets (and possibly to you). Leptospirosis,
listeria, tularemia, fleas, ticks and round-


worms are all carried by raccoons.
A lot of people think of rabies when they
think of raccoons. It's a real possibility, but
there is some bad information floating
around out there. If you see a coon in the
daytime, that doesn't mean it's rabid.
Raccoons are more active at dawn and
dusk, but they can be alert and moving
around literally any time of day or night,
especially if they have babies to feed. And
a raccoon that seems fearless or aggressive
is also not likely to be rabid. That's how a
rabid dog acts. According to the Human
Society, a rabid raccoon can recognized by
the following characteristics: A staggering
gait; oblivion to noise or nearby movement;
erratic wandering; a discharge from eyes or
mouth; wet and matted hair on the face;
a repeated high-pitched vocalization; and
self-mutilation. If you see that, call animal
control, but don't panic. There's been only
one recorded human death from rabies
transmitted by a raccoon. You're far more
likely to be killed by a mosquito bite.
Raccoons are wonderful and intriguing
animals. Raccoons also have the potential to
be troublemaking pests. Really, it's up to you.
Use'coon-proof trash bins. Don't feed animals
outdoors. Block off the area under your shed.
If you followjust these few common-sense
steps, you can enjoy watching raccoons when
you see them instead of getting in another
fight with Ma Nature.

Laishley Marine



celebrates 20 years


Staff Report
Laishley Marine has come a long way
since moving from its old location on
Taylor Road in Punta Gorda to where it
is now on U.S. 41. To stay in business
for 20 years is a feat in itself. But to
be successful, you have to have quality
customer service. Manager Vicki
Metzler understands this, and practices
what she preaches. She sums up her
experience at Laishley with one word.
Happy.
"When I first came to work here, all
I could say was that I was happy;' Vicki
says. "Each day is like that. We have
good employees with good attitudes,
and that makes the customers feel,
well, happy.
"Our staff knows what they are
talking about, so when you come here,


you'll get an answer.":'
When not in the store, Vicki can
usually be found on the water boating.
Recently, her husband introduced her
to fishing.
"I'm from Michigan originally, so
it's kind of cool getting into saltwater
fishing. It also helps that we have a
pretty good in-house fishing expert.
When I have any kind of question
about fishing, I go to Chuck.":'
Chuck Terrell is who Vicki is refer-
ring to. A retired police officer from
Hampton Roads, Va., Chuck is on the
water almost more than he is in the
store.
"This is the perfect job for me;'
Chuck says. "I love fishing and I love
dealing with people. Plus, I'm able to
test out all the latest gear. I'm like a
kid in a candy store.":'


Customer service is Vicki's number
one priority, and to show that, Laishley
Marine will be having a customer
appreciation day on Dec. 7.
Of course, there will be boat and RV
parts on display, but there will also
be sales on apparel and fishing gear.
There will be various fishing seminars
provided by local guides. In addition,
captains Mike Anderson and Billy
Nobles from Reel Animals Fishing Show
will also be on hand.
"If you want to pick up a couple of
tips, you should stop by next Saturday,"
Vicki says. "We're also going to have
some hot dogs and hamburgers for
everybody. It's going to be a fun
time.
"To be in business for 20 years is
a rare thing, Vicki says. "But it's fun
coming to work each day. I'm happy.":'

A lot to be thankful for


By Lee Anderson
WaterLine Editor

This is a stressful time of year, for everybody. It's
great getting together with family, but it can be a tad
overwhelming. Then there's the matter of gifts. I don't
care who you are, it's an expensive time of the year,
and too often we allow money to get in the way of
happiness and what's real in life.
But as bad as you think you have it, things can
always be worse. By no means are my burdens the
heaviest. Not even close. I'm thankful for everything I
have, and that's a fact. But this past week tested me a
bit, especially financially. But it all turned out good in
the end.
As I was headed back from Tampa visiting a
pal's new boxing gym, BulldogBoxingAndFitness.com
- my truck broke down. Although I wasn't thankful
for the $350 in repairs, I was thankful for the Road
Ranger that helped me out tremendously. My wife and
I just cut a check to an adoption agency. It was a good
amount, but I can't even imagine how thankful we
would be if we received a call with good news anytime
soon. Wow! But what I'm most thankful for is my wife,
Lorraine. And as I'm writing this column, I can't stop
thinking about the call I got from her this morning.
She heads to work a little before me, leaving me an
extra 30 minutes of invaluable sleep time before I get
up. But she woke me about 10 minutes into my bonus
slumber, softly telling me she had just been in an
accident. Like anybody, my heart dropped. Turns out
she was rear-ended by an older gentleman that said
his foot slipped off his brake. My wife was unharmed,
with a little damage to the car. But calls like that do
humble you. I've spoken to her four times today so far,
and will give her another call after I finish writing.
There are so many things we complain about, but
like Jim from Fisherman's Edge says,"Nobody wants
to hear somebody complain."You got that right. I like
Jim's attitude. It seems he's happy running his store
in his little neck of the woods, getting three square
meals a day. Then I spoke to another bait shop guy,
then another. And I'm glad I did. These guys work long
hours, but each one has a great attitude toward life.


I always enjoy our conversations each week, but this
week was special.
Paul from Old Pine Island Marina just got back from
Honduras. He goes there through his church and helps
out down there. He says the experience makes him
chersih what he has here in the United States. "They
don't have food or anything;' Paul says. "Here, we can
just go to the store. We can buy just about anything.
The experience changed me. It made me thankful for
everything.":'
Chuck from Laishley Marine is thankful to be alive.
A former policeman, he enjoys his days now talking
to customers and giving fishing tips. "There's really
nothing I'd rather do than this right now," says Chuck.
"1 made it out of my main career alive, now I'm doing
this. Not too bad.":'
Camille from Cougar Bait is also thankful for his job.
He recently took the chance and started up his bait
shop in the Nokomis/Venice area."I'm thankful for the
opportunity. Not many get the chance to do this. It's a
lot of work, but I love it."
Robert from Fishin' Frank's was in the same boat."l
could have never imagined that I would be managing
Frank's at this point in my life. My family supported me
in making this a reality.":'
Sometimes the little things are worth mentioning,
too. Dave from Fine Bait and Tackle gives thanks for his
dachshund, Annie. It turns out Annie is handy around
the shop, pawing out the shrimp from under the
shrimp tanks."The shop would be a lot more smelly
without Annie around, Dave says.
Of course, these guys are fishermen, and they are
thankful for many things in and on the water. Doug
from D&D Bait and Tackle is thankful for the opening
of snook season. After being closed more than three
years, he says "Thank you, snook'."
And then there's Jeff from Capt. Ted's Tackle. It
seems this guy is never in a bad mood. When asked
what he was most thankful for, he said the previous
week's low gas prices."I'd be even more thankful if
they stayed low," Jeff says. But on a serious note, he
said he was thankful for true friends. Well-spoken, Jeff.
Thanks for taking the time to talk, guys. And for the
fishing reports. Now I'm going to go call my wife.

Holiday


nift idAae


During the holidays, 2 El
sometimes it's tough to get out l
on the boat. You have family
coming in town or going out of
town, shopping to do, dinner to prepare and
many other things to do. And speaking of shop-
ping, boats and accessories make for terrific
presents either for yourself or someone
special.
With the weather cooling down, maybe
some warmer boat-friendly clothing works. Or
how about a Power Pole or Talon shallow water
anchor? After all, who wants to get wet pulling
the anchor in when it's cold out?
If the weather conditions aren't friendly for
boating, maybe it's a good time to go look for
an item you've been wanting for your boat. You
don't have a boat? Well, tis the season. There
are plenty of great deals to be had.
But there are many things to shop for that
are reasonably priced. You may be just looking
for some new fishing poles or lures. The list is
endless. The wife, girlfriend, husband or signif-
icant other will eventually go out shopping for
friends and family.
Why not take some time and make a list of
a few things you would like? Something you
would use. Remember, you probably won't get
what you don't ask for. It could be that new
cooler that holds ice for days at a time -just
don't forget to clean it out.

How about some new sunglasses? We almost
always have sun in Florida, even if it is cold

so you can see better even if it's raining out.
Not sure what your the boating family or friend
want for the holidays?
You can always get a gift certificate for items
or service work. Gift certificates are great gifts.
Also, this time of year is a good time to go
through your boat safety equipment. Start
the new year in a safe way. Flares and other
safety equipment may be expiring, so make
sure those items are up to date. With so many
boating items, there are endless gift ideas for
the boater in your life this holiday season.
From our family to yours, happy Thanks-

Brunswick CEO:



Boat prices matter


By Craig Ritchie
Boatinglndustry.com


Brunswick Corporation CEO Dusty McCoy
identified four areas in which the boating
industry must improve during his keynote
presentation to kick off the 26th Marine Equip-
ment Trade Show held recently in Amsterdam.
Brunswick owns several well-known brands,
including Mercury Marine, Sea Ray, Boston
Whaler, Lund, Bayliner, Land'N'Sea and
Meridian Yachts. Above all else, McCoy said, the
industry must hold the line on retail pricing.
"We surveyed 50,000 boating consumers
- current boaters, former boaters and future
boaters in the United States, Canada,
Europe and Brazil;said McCoy. "And we
learned a striking fact. It is not important for
us to sell boating as an attractive lifestyle.
People get that. They know that boating is
fun, and they know that boating is a pastime
that brings families together. What they're
having trouble with, however, is balancing the
benefits of boating with the costs of boating. If
we look at real market pricing, the cost of new
boats is rising dramatically faster than the rate
of inflation.":'
The answer, he said, is for the entire industry
to rethink how boats and their various compo-
nents are made, pointing to the auto industry


as an example. New cars include numerous
features and refinements not found on older
vehicles, McCoy noted, while manufacturers
have managed to hold retail price levels at a
more consistent level while protecting oper-
ating margins. "As an industry, we're beginning
to price ourselves out of business. It's difficult
for a lot of people to wrap their heads around
that because we've all become very good
at adding features and letting the costs fall
where they may. But we now need to become
better at engineering boats so they provide
better value'."
McCoy said, the boat industry needs to
rethink how boats are produced, and adopt
the just-in-time supply chain model that has
helped automakers significantly reduce costs.
He identified supplier flexibility and speed
as a key requirement for this to take place,
along with ensuring all partners within a
given supply chain have sufficient operational
capacity. "Nobody wants to carry inventory
today dealers don't want to have money
tied up in it, nor do distributors, manufacturers
or anyone else in the supply chain. But we all
need inventory, and we all need to be able to
supply it faster than ever. The days of building
product then waiting for a sale to come along
are over. Suppliers need to be as quick and
flexible as suppliers in the automotive industry

Mangrove crabs



safe in the bushes


News-Press

This crab gets its name from the mangrove
trees where it is most commonly found. When
the creature feels threatened, it will hold onto
a branch and then drop down into the water.
The exterior's color is mottled brown to
olive green. The shell is widest at the front and
tapers as it goes toward the rear.
The shell is usually 1.8 to 2 centimeters in
size with males usually being a bit larger. Size
also varies according to habitat, and larger
crabs are usually found in bigger, more mature,
mangrove forests.
The mangrove crab's eyes are widespread
at the front corners of the carapace. There are
sharp tips at the end of its legs that helps it
climb the mangrove trees and other vertical
surfaces. The creature usually stays in the
mangrove trees during high tide and will come
down to the sediment when the tide is low.


This crab mostly eats the leaves from the
mangrove tree that it lives on, but it also
munches on plant and animal tissue such as
macro algae, and sea grasses including shoal
grass and turtle grass.
The mangrove crab is found from Florida to
northern Brazil and throughout the Caribbean
and Pacific coasts from Nicaragua to Peru.
The female can hold between 5,000 and
35,000 eggs. Fertilization usually happens
shortly after a female molts and the male
transfers sperm-filled cases called spermato-
phores to the female. After fertilization, the
female mangrove tree crab carries the fertil-
ized eggs under her abdomen until they are
ready to hatch about 16 days later. While she
carries the eggs, she will usually move to the
fringes of the mangrove area, where condi-
tions are better for the developing embryos
and for the release of the newly hatched larvae
into the water.

Weak hurricane



season closes


Associated Press

MIAMI The 2013 Atlantic season has
delivered the fewest hurricanes since 1982,
U.S. forecasters said, despite their predictions
in May that it would be a busier than normal
year.
"It was a busted forecast;said Chris
Landsea, a forecaster at the National Hurricane
Center. "We did not anticipate it to be a quiet
year.":'
Forecasters had predicted 13 to 20 named
Atlantic storms, seven to 11 that strengthen
into hurricanes and three to six that become
major hurricanes.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration said there was a 70 percent
chance that this year was going to be more
active than an average hurricane season.
NOAA only put the chance of a quiet year at 5
percent.
There were 13 named storms right on
target but only two, Ingrid and Humberto,
became hurricanes. Neither was considered
"major;"which is a storm that reaches Category
3 strength with winds from 111 to 129 mph
that can cause devastating damage.
Forecasters say that a combination of
factors, including drier-than-expected air
and persistent conditions in the atmosphere
over the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and
tropical Atlantic Ocean, led to the weaker
season, which starts June 1 and ends Saturday.
A normal year has 12 named storms, six hurri-


canes and three major storms with winds over
110 mph.
NOAA says 2013 will rank as the sixth
least-active year since 1950, in terms of the
collective strength and duration of tropical
storms and hurricanes.
Only one storm, Tropical Storm Andrea,
made landfall in the United States. It brought
tornadoes, heavy rain, and minor flooding
to portions of Florida, eastern Georgia and
eastern South Carolina, causing one death,
NOAA said.
Unlike the U.S., Mexico was battered by
eight storms, including three from the Atlantic
basin and five from the eastern North Pacific.
Landsea said that in the Atlantic, hurricane
activity tends to come in cycles, with the U.S.
being in an active cycle that began in 1995.
The cycles last from 25 to 40 years, so it's
unclear whether 2013 will be harbinger of
things to come.
"It may be that we'll jump right back to a
busy hurricane season, a lot of impacts, or it
could be that we're, you know, changing to
a quiet regime again. We really don't know,";'
Landsea said.
The relative calm in the Atlantic has no
relationship to hurricane activity elsewhere,
pointing to the storms that hit Mexico and
Typhoon Haiyan, which struck the Philippines
Nov. 8, killing more than 5,200.
Last year was the third-busiest on record
with 19 named storms. Ten became hurricanes
and two were major storms, including Sandy.

Wash the fish and pat dry. Cut into one-inch pieces and puree in a food processor. Gradually add
egg whites. Transfer to a mixing bowl and beat in cream with a wooden spoon until well blended.
Season with salt and pepper. Using two tablespoons dipped into boiling water or melted butter,
shape the mixture into small ovals. Arrange the quenelles on a greased tray. Cover and refrigerate
24 hours. Carefully transfer the quenelles into a deep pan. Cover with water and salt to taste.
Poach over very low heat for about ten minutes (do not boil). Drain quenelles on a kitchen towel.
To prepare the sauce, melt the butter in a skillet and saute the onions for two minutes. Stir in the
champagne. Season with the salt and pepper. Simmer for five minutes. Serve quenelles hot with
sauce poured on top. Serves 6 to 8.

Sea stars stricken by



mysterious disease


The Washington Post

Sea stars off the nation's eastern and western
coasts are dying in large numbers and in the
most undignified ways. Their colorful limbs
are curling up at the tips. Squiggly arms are
detaching from dying bodies like tails from
lizards and wiggling until they also drop dead.
Ulcers are opening holes in tissue, allowing
internal organs to ooze out.
Marine scientists say the sea stars are under
attack by an unknown wasting disease that
turns their bodies to goo, and the results are
gruesome, nasty and grisly.
All along the Pacific coast, sea stars are
experiencing their largest known die-off, which
is affecting more species of sea stars than any
other attack in recent memory, biologists said.
A smaller and isolated Atlantic outbreak, at
points off Rhode Island and Maine, has also
been noted.
Formerly known as starfish a term scientists
rejected because they're more like a sea urchin
than a fish sea stars have been killed
by disease several times over the past few
decades. But each of those events affected only
a single species, marine scientists said, not up
to seven, as the new plague has. Divers have
previously reported mass sea star deaths in
warmer waters south of Santa Barbara, Calif.,
but not in waters as cool as those of Washing-
ton's Puget Sound.
Scientists disagree slightly on the potential
ecological impacts of the current die-off. Sea
stars control mussel populations by relentlessly
eating them. In their absence, mussels may
proliferate and ruin portions of undersea kelp
forests that hide small fish from predators and
help protect coastal areas from sea surge and
storm flooding.
That impact"is very unlikely;'said John
Pearse, a professor emeritus of ecology and
evolutionary biology at the University of
California at Santa Cruz, who believes scientists
will figure the problem out before it gets out of
control.
But a colleague who is closely studying the
disease isn't so sure. "We are at the onset of
the outbreak"said Pete Raimondi, chair of
the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary
Biology at Santa Cruz.
More important, said Drew Harvell, a
Cornell University professor of ecology and
evolutionary biology who studies marine
diseases, "these kinds of events are sentinels of
change. When you get an event like this, I think
everybody will say it's an extreme event and it's
pretty important to figure out what's going on'."
Scientists do know that wasting is happening
on both coasts, but they don't know if the two


die-offs are linked. They know that tens of
thousands of sunflower stars have perished in
British Columbia alone since the summer, but
they don't know exactly how many or every
place there's a disease outbreak.
They decline to blame climate change or
acidic waters or other warming-related issues,
saying that would be just speculation.
Not knowing is scary, Harvell said. If a similar
thing were happening to humans, the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention would
commit an army of doctors and scientists to
unraveling the mystery.
"We have far less resources with ocean
organisms to get to the million-dollar question:
What is the causative agent?" Harvell said. Is it
a bacterium, a virus, a parasite or some disease
introduced by an invasive species that plopped
out of a ship that had been in foreign waters?
What scientists agree on is that they aren't
close to knowing what's causing the outbreak,
let alone stopping it. Having first detected it
this summer, they've identified the illness as a
wasting disease because sea stars fall apart and
waste away, but they really don't know much
else.
"It came from out of nowhere;' said Laura
Rogers-Bennett, a senior environmental scien-
tist for the California Fish and Wildlife Service
who studies sea stars near San Francisco.
Raimondi started a Web site to track
locations where sea stars are turning up dead,
inviting anyone who sees one anywhere on
the West Coast to report it. "We can build an
epidemiological map;' he said. "Here's where it
exists and where it doesn't exist. You can look
for initiation points, causes; if they initiated in
warm water, you might have a smoking gun.":'
Sea stars have endured localized wasting
events in warmer waters, such as in Southern
California in 1983 and 1997. But such disease
is extremely rare in colder waters,"and that's a
serious concern for us;' Rogers-Bennett said.
Harvell said an event stretching from
Southern California to British Columbia with
multiple species is virtually unheard of. Pisas-
ters, shaped like stars on the American flag, and
vibrant sunflower stars as big as a trash can's
lid, are among the many sea stars affected.
"We collected three different species just
from here;'" Harvell said, referring to the
Atlantic coast, "and five or six species on the
West Coast.":'
Along with dolphins, whales and sharks,
sea stars are, well, stars of the sea. People can
wade into the water and pick one up or scuba
to greater depths and touch them where they
live on reefs. They are harvested unfortu-
nately, biologists say to be dried and turned
into household decorations.

Staff Report

It was a good three months.
For the first time in over three years, snook
season was open. It opened Sept. 1, and it will
close on Sunday, Dec. 1. The next time you can
legally keep a snook on the West Coast will be
on March 1,2014. Then it will close again on
May 1.
Sound confusing? Not really. If you're new to
the area, we had ourselves a little crisis back
in 2010. For 10 miserable days in January, the
Sunshine State was anything but. If you were
here, you remember. If you weren't, here's
a brief picture: Leaden, sunless skies; highs
in the 50s and lows below freezing; tropical
landscaping turned to brown mush; everyone
bundled up in whatever winter-ish clothing
a Floridian happens to own. And oh yeah -
Charlotte Harbor's shorelines and coves were
littered with dead snook, jacks and tarpon.
With huge numbers of dead fish reported
around the state, Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commissioners knew they had
a snook crisis on their hands. They moved
quickly, extending the snook season closure
until September statewide.
Winters had been relatively mild for several
years prior, and snook numbers were high.
Worse, many of them had been overwintering
in relatively shallow water. That's a bad plan
for a tropical fish when the air temperature
plummets, it can get cold quickly on the fiats.
A rapid drop in temperature can kill snook even
if it doesn't drop to lethal minimum.
As FWC biologists sifted through the data
they had from snook kill reports and conducted
their usual fish population surveys, it became
apparent that fish on the Gulf Coast had fared
far worse than snook on the Atlantic side. The
reason was water depth. Atlantic snook were
more likely to have rapid access to deep water
refuges, where they found temperatures high
enough to survive. On our coast, most snook
live inshore, and water deeper than 20 feet is
in pretty short supply. Because there was little
warming during the day, the water didn't heat
up. Snook that couldn't find warm pockets
didn't survive.
Despite Atlantic snook breeding popula-
tions failing to meet the goal of a 40 percent
spawning potential ratio (that is, having a
spawning population at least 40 percent of
the size it would be with no human fishing


pressure), the FWC opted to open an abbrevi-
ated Atlantic-only snook season in 2010 from
Sept. 17 to Dec. 15. At the same meeting,
commissioners decided there would be no
spring snook season in 2011 and the idea of
reopening a fall Gulf snook season would be
evaluated in summer 2011.
Commissioners were still feeling conserva-
tive when the time came to decide about a fall
2011 season on the Gulf Coast, choosing again
to keep it closed. The reasons? They wanted
to give the snook more time to rebound, but
mostly they wanted to see what the next
stock assessment had in store. The report was
expected in early 2012. Meanwhile, Atlantic
snook season was returned to business as
usual.
In June 2012, FWC staff presented the
updated stock assessment, which showed
snook populations were improving in the
Atlantic (though still below target numbers)
and weren't in biological jeopardy in the Gulf.
Although FWC staff recommended an open
season, commissioners opted yet again to keep
snook off West Coast tables.
The vote to open snook season in September
was a little anticlimactic. Of course, the vote
was held near the end of a very long day that
also saw nearly eight hours of testimony on
Boca Grande tarpon jigs, and most folks had
left by the time snook came up. Commission
Chairman Wright said it had been their inten-
tion all along to open Gulf snook they were
just waiting for the timing to be right.
What it comes down to is that, despite the
misgivings of some local anglers and charter
captains, there really was no biological justifi-
cation for keeping the season closed.
Now that the season has been open for three
months, it will be interesting to see what kind
of numbers the FWC come up with. Did snook
get slaughtered out there by anglers? Or did
anglers take it easy on them? WaterLine will
keep you posted on any information we get as
soon as we get it. Until then, you can still catch
snook on the West Coast, you just can't harvest
them. At least until March 1.
Gag grouper season also closes this week.
It closes on Tuesday, Dec. 3 in state waters.
Unfortunately, it will not open again until July
1 of 2014. It's too bad, because this time of
year they tend to come in closer from offshore.
But that's how it goes. All in the name of
conservation.

stuck with fillet duties.
As with any tournament, there will likely
be some critics. Fish die in tournaments. The
only way to prevent fish from perishing is to
not fish plain and simple. But I like to fish,
and so do many of our readers. The Salvation
Army seemed to be thrilled at the prospect of
providing their patrons something different
than the usual protein source. Publix liked our
idea so much that they are going to provide
other food goods to go along with the trout.
I'm sure there will be a few families that


will be grateful to have some of the Harbor's
bounty on their tables.
Again, we've got some other changes
coming up, but for right now, we're keeping it
simple.
Tourneys and hats are great, but our content
and quality of WaterLine each week is what's
most important. Our columnists are our
backbone. Without them, there is no WaterLine.
We've added a female twist on angling with
Dawn Klemish. We've added a medical twist
on things with Dr. Mark Asperilla. We've added
diving experts, boat mechanics and paddle-
sports professionals. Camping, hunting, boating
and other outdoor activities are also in the mix.
Change can be a good thing.

. Wanted: Pole-and-troll hati


Last week, I asked you to tell me what you
think of enacting no-motor zones, commonly
called pole-and-trolls, in parts of Charlotte
Harbor. I thought I might be stirring up a
hornet's nest, but every comment I've gotten
by email or heard from a reader has been in
favor of the idea some of them very much
so, to the point of volunteering time and effort
toward making it happen.
Pole-and-trolls are already in place in other
parts of Florida, and they've gotten mixed
reviews from boaters and anglers. The ones
that are the least welcome are the ones that
are the most extensive. Vast sections of Florida
Bay that lie within Everglades National Park

*:1ELJFe


were proposed as pole-and-troll zones earlier
this year. The measure, which would prohibit
combustion engines in about a third of the
park's waterways, has met with staunch
resistance from CCA Florida, the Florida Guides
Association and a host of concerned individ-
uals. It may yet come to pass; we won't find
out until next year.
It's not that these folks don't recognize
there's a problem. They know that a lot of
boaters, due to inconsideration or igno-
rance, are doing damage to Florida Bay's
grassflats. And they know those grassflats
are vital habitat to thousands of marine
species, including the sportfish they want


to pursue. But the proposal is too much take
and not enough give. For such a gambit to be
successful, it needs to have the support of the
people who use those waters for both recre-
ation and for their livelihood. If their concerns
aren't taken into account, the whole thing will
likely fall apart.
So it seems to me the next step is finding
detractors. I know that there are some people
out there who are opposed to the idea of
no-motor zones. If you're one of them, I want
to hear from you. This is meant to be a discus-
sion, not a lecture. Then again, maybe I'm
wrong. Maybe every single WaterLine reader
thinks this is a great idea. So far, I have no

EIL;ctW =0


evidence to the contrary.
After that, we could look toward consen-
sus-building. It seems to me that there's got
to be a way we could place no-motor zones
using common sense, allowing the habitat to
thrive while also allowing a reasonable level
of access for everyone. I know there are some
hard heads on both sides of this issue, because
every issue is like that. But to actually achieve
something that is worthwhile and useful,
compromise is the only sensible tactic.
No matter where you stand on pole-and-
trolls, let's talk. Email me at Publisher@
WaterLineWeekly.com or call 941-276-9657. I
look forward to hearing from you.

Some be

expected in
DEAR DR. ROACH: I
just found out that I have
bone loss in my spine.
What does that mean
for me? Will I get so that
I can't walk? I am very
worried. I am 82 years old.
- B.EH.
ANSWER: Bone loss
in the spine is almost
universal in 82-year-olds,
for both men and women.
However, women start off
with less bone than men,
on average, so they are at
greater risk for fractures
when the bone loss
occurs.
Depending on how
much bone loss there is,
we call it "osteopenia"
if it is more mild, and
"osteoporosis" if it is more
severe. In general, there
are no symptoms of osteo-
penia, which is why we do
a test, most commonly an
X-ray test called a DEXA,
to look for the amount
of bone in the spine and
hips.
The biggest risk is that of
a fracture. Fractures in the
spine are most commonly
compression fractures;
imagine a hatbox with too
much weight on top of
it that gets crushed and
loses some of its height.
This causes pain, as the
nerves that go in between
the vertebrae (the hat box-
es) get pressed on. It also
brings on numbness or
weakness. A hip fracture is
the most devastating com-
plication of osteoporosis.
Most people with bone
loss benefit from calcium,
which can be obtained
through your diet or by
taking supplements, and
vitamin D, which usually
requires supplements if
low. People with oste-
oporosis usually need
medication treatment,
but there are many kinds
of medications to treat it.
The goal of treatment is to
prevent fractures.
DEAR DR. ROACH: I
have several warts on the
knuckle of my ring finger.
They have been growing
and spreading for more
than 10 years. I have tried
many different methods
and have spent thousands
of dollars to remove
the warts, but none of
these methods has been
successful. Here is what
I've tried so far: over-
the-counter treatments,
surgical removal, freezing
(three treatments),
garlic oil, duct tape, laser
removal (four treatments),
Internet natural solution
"guaranteed" methods,
self-hypnosis, probiotic
dietary supplements and
ranitidine. Some of these
treatments reduced or
removed the wart for


one loss

82-year-old


Dr. Roach

a short period of time,
but in all cases the wart
returned in exactly the
same location. The warts
have grown together and
are now larger than ever.
All of my doctors have
given up. What do you
suggest? R.H.
ANSWER: Well, you
have been through a lot.
Warts are caused by a
virus, human papilloma
virus (HPV), and though
they usually go away
by themselves eventu-
ally, they can be pretty
stubborn. Before I talk
about some additional
treatments you haven't
mentioned, let me start by
saying that not everything
that looks like a wart is
a wart. Given how long
these have been going
on, you should be sure
you know what you are
dealing with, and that
means a skin biopsy by
a dermatologist, if you
haven't already had one.
I have had excellent
success with imiquimod
(Aldara), a topical cream
that works by stimulating
the immune system. It has
few side effects but un-
fortunately is expensive.
5-fluorouracil (Fluoroplex)
also can be used, and it
causes inflammation at
the site, made worse by
sun exposure. Cantharidin
is available in Canada
and by compounding
pharmacies in the U.S.; it
needs to be administered
by your doctor. There
are even more therapies
that should be attempted
only by an expert, such as
bleomycin (a chemothera-
py agent), contact aller-
gens and injection with
antigens such as candida
antigen. I would think
twice before proceeding
down that road.
Dr Roach regrets that
he is unable to answer
individual letters, but
will incorporate them
in the column when-

Give thanks for these hints


Dear Readers: Happy
Thanksgiving! Many
of you will be cooking
a turkey and will have
lots of leftovers for the
weekend. Here are some
hints to keep your turkey
day healthy and happy for
family and friends:
Are you going to stuff
the turkey? A stuffed
turkey takes longer to
cook, and the stuffing
must get to a minimum
temperature of 165 E
Don't fix the stuffing
the night before, for
food-safety sake.
As soon as the stuffing
is prepared, stuff the
turkey and place it in the
oven at a minimum of
325 F.
Once the turkey is
done, be sure to let it
sit for about 20 minutes
before you start to cut into
it. This allows the juices to
"settle" into the meat and
will help prevent the meat
from becoming dried out.
Eat the turkey and
stuffing in three to four
days, or freeze the leftovers
so you can have turkey
and dressing in July!
Gravy can be saved
but must be reheated to
boiling before serving
again to prevent food
poisoning or getting your
family sick. Heloise

Moving breakables
Dear Heloise: When
I move (I'm a college
student and move often), I
go through my clothes and
decide which ones I plan
to donate. Then I use those
clothes to wrap breakable

items for the move.
When I am unpacking,
I put the clothes in a pile
and do not have to sort
them later. This also saves
on a lot of newspaper. -
Kim, via email

Chore Olympics
Dear Heloise: I am a
stay-at-home mother to
three children, ages 8, 3
and 18 months. I am try-
ing to get them, especially
the 8-year-old, excited
about chores and clean-
ing. I had the idea to do a
housekeeping Olympics.
This involves training
(how to do various jobs)
and competing. I am not
exactly sure, though, how
to set that up. Any tips you
could offer would be super
helpful. EP, via email
Sounds like you love your
children and want to teach
them basic life skills that
everyone should know! Ask
rather than assign a task.
Some don't mind sweeping;
others hate it.
Try to make it not
a chore but part of
being a member of the
household. Everyone
(age appropriate) can do
something! Heloise

Fake pregnancy lures man

into a live-in relationship


DEAR ABBY: A friend of
mine faked a pregnancy to
get a man to stay with her.
Once he moved in, she told
him she'd had a miscar-
riage. She even went so far
as to name this so-called
baby.
He now has the baby's
name tattooed on his arm!
She goes on Facebook and
talks about how she misses
her "little baby boy," and
counts every month as
though it is his birthday.
Every time I read it I get a
sick feeling.
I want to tell this man
the truth. I know for a FACT
she was not pregnant. I'm
not sure how to go about
this. If I say something, I
know I will end up the bad
guy. Should I mind my
own business or let this
man know he's living with
a maniac? -WANTS TO
TELL THE TRUTH
DEAR WANTS: Your
friend may have told this lie
so often that she has come
to believe it herself. Or,
she may be acting this out
in order to hang onto the
man. While I don't think she
is a maniac, I do think she
maybe unbalanced.
I agree the man has a
right to know. Wouldn't
you want to be told if you
were him? The way to do
it is face-to-face. And be
prepared for the friendship
to end afterward. Frankly,
that may be for the best
because the woman has
more problems than you
can cope with.
DEAR ABBY: My hus-
band and I have recently
moved and are now being
bombarded with demands
to see our home. I was
brought up to believe
that inviting yourself to
anything, especially the
privacy of someone's home,
is extremely rude.
I understand our family is
excited for us, and it is nice
to be loved but our home
isn't ready to be shown, and
people won't give up! Telling
them about the remodeling
mess and that we plan to
have a housewarming party
in the future when everyone
can see our place has been
ineffective.
The times I have been
unable to avoid people who
insisted on coming over,


Dear Abby

they were rude and judg-
mental about the moving
mess. Please advise me how
to say "no" without offend-
ing those who are offending
me. -ETIQUETTE-
BOUND HOMEOWNER IN
KANSAS
DEAR HOMEOWNER:
I'll offer a tip. It is amazing
what a person can get away
with saying if it is done with
a smile. All you have to do
is smile and say, "Nope. NO
ONE can see it until the
unveiling." And remember,
it isn't rude to stand your
ground when someone is
trying to encroach upon it.
Even family members.
DEAR ABBY: My problem
is my mother. My entire life
(I am 50) she has made me
choose between her and
Dad for the holidays. They
have been divorced for 30
years, and she still speaks ill
of him. She has made every
wedding or family event
unbearable. It has reached
the point that I feel guilty if I
want to go and see him.
She is now doing the
same thing with my
boyfriend of four years. A
lot has transpired between
us, but we are on a good
path and are very much
involved in each other's
lives. She refused to spend
this past Easter with us,
including my children, if he
was around. I told her that
it was her choice and she is
always welcome to attend.
With Christmas fast ap-
proaching, I don't want all
the drama and blackmail to
continue. Help! -WEARY
INWISCONSIN
DEARWEARY: You
handled Easter appropri-
ately and you should do
the same with Christmas.
If your mother chooses not
to attend, the choice is hers.
Consider asking your father
to join you if she won't be
there.


"And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be convert-
ed, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into
the kingdom of heaven."- Matthew 18:3
There's nothing like the faith and honesty of a child.
True conversion means that we depend on Jesus like a
child depends on his parents. Give Jesus your all.

Opening lead: Two of 6
The opening lead can be a crucial
first strike for the defense, but it can
also be very important to declarer.

clubs and led another club, finessing
dummy's jack when West followed

East-West were perplexed. This
was a strong game and all the players
knew that the percentage play when
missing four to the queen was to cash
the ace and king. Why had South
taken this anti-percentage play? "The
opening lead" was South's answer.
He knew from the early play that
West started with three cards in each
red suit. The two of spades lead
suggested he had exactly four cards
in that suit. That left him with three
clubs. South cashed the ace of clubs
first in case East's singleton was the
queen, and then took the marked
finesse. Nothing to it!

There were no exotic vacations to far-ung destinations or fancy gifts on momentous occasions. In fact, they never even had a honeymoon. But what Bovio Bob Ceraolo and his wife Mary have had in their seven decades of marriage is far more valuable than any thing they could buy a deep and lasting love that has survived wars, poverty, sickness and separation. Its a love that persists despite age and time. One that, all these years later, still makes the 95-yearold Mary weep when she talks about it. Thanksgiving wont be the same this year without her beloved Bob at home, but Mary is thankful all the same. Hes my life, she said, dotting her tear-lled eyes with a napkin off her lunch tray. He was always so good to me. Its a warm and breezy afternoon in the cafeteria of the North Port nursing facility where, for the last month, Bob has lived, after sustaining a debilitating fall that left the 90-year-old man weak and in need of physical therapy. Its the rst time the couple have been separated since 1946, when Bob was discharged from the Army at the end of World War II. We were together all our lives, Bob said slowly. He looked off into the distance, appearing to remember a span of time that began for him as a teenager while working in a Manhattan, N.Y., shower curtain factory. Thats where he met and fell in love with his future bride. It was a long time ago, but Bob still remembers when cupid struck. I knew it right away, he said. I brought her Fig Newtons for lunch every day. He smiled and lifted a spoonful of vegetable soup to his mouth.

I hope the 5-pound weight of the paper didnt throw out your back interfering with your holiday festivities. Todays paper is more than 1,200 pages, including all the advertisements close to an all-time record Thanksgiving paper for us. One of our roles as a community newspaper is to help advertisers and consumers nd each other. We would not have such a successful business without the support of our readers and advertisers. I am thankful for each of you today and every day. Our paid print circulation is up over last year. Thank you for your support. Your backing allows us to engage in our core mission of helping our communities be great places in which to live, work and play. In 2009 during the Great Recession, as almost all our peers in the industry continued to cut people, our company made a decision to stop laying off employees and stop giving furlough days. Our company made a calculated bet that together, with our incredibly talented employees, we would nd a way to overcome the challenges of the Great Recession. It was a bit breathtaking as our prot margin evaporated and went negative. We believed in our employees and the future. Weve been rewarded with growing revenue, circulation and the return of prots. At the end of the day, great employees, including our delivery partners and quite extensive group of freelance writers and photographers, made our bet on the future pay off. I am thankful today for each of them. I am thankful for our parents. Janie and I have all four parents alive today. I am amazed how much smarter they seem to get each year. Hardly a visit goes by without another nugget of wisdom. My favorite father-in-law dropped this one on me when we were talking about a Hollywood couples breakup. The grass looks greener on the other side of the fence. But remember, that grass has to be mowed too. In 1880, the United States average life expectancy was about 40 years. Now life expectancy is closer to 80 years. Scientists now expect that most children born today in the United States will live over 100 years. When you next meet someone in the health care business, give them a hug. I am thankful for what they mean to the length and quality of our lives. I am thankful to be alive in this great country at this incredible time in history. I wouldnt trade this time in history or being in this country for any time or any place. The joke around the ofce is whenever anyone asks me hows it going? I always say, fantastic! Thats also my standard reply in a restaurant or at a civic meeting fantastic! Life is not always fantastic! There are always moments of anger, frustration, envy and fatigue. Yet when those moments arrive I usually reect that Ive already won a billion to one lifes lottery. To be alive right now in history and in this country, how can I not say life is fantastic! Thank you to our readers, advertisers, and our staff for making our past year special. David Dunn-Rankin is publisher and president of the Sun newspapers. You can email him at daviddr@sun-herald.com.Giving thanks Happy Thanksgiving. If youre busy stufng a turkey, peeling potatoes, dipping apples in caramel, cleaning toilets, decorating a Christmas tree, watching football and/or shopping, then consider this your one-stop shop for every thing you may (and may not) need to know today. What time is the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade? The ofcial airing of the parade, in its 87th year, starts at 9 a.m. on NBC. CBS shows the parade at 9 a.m. as well but it calls it The Thanksgiving Day Parade on CBS. There may be more than large balloon characters (unless they are grounded due to high winds) this year.

Speaking of beef, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts scheduled performance on a South Dakota tourism oat also rufed feathers. Apparently, Jett is a vegetarian and PETA advocate, according to CNN.

See story, page 5.SARASOTA COUNTY The Early Learning Coalition of Sarasota County is over seeing a new state program that is allowing easier access to child care for area homeless families. In July, Early Learning came out with new, Florida Legislature-mandated criteria stating that children of homeless families are eligible for state-funded scholarships on a priority basis for a certain period of time. The coalition, which also receives assistance from the Gulf Coast Community Foundation in Venice, provides administration and oversight of the local system of early education for preschool-age children in Sarasota County, ensuring quality child care, early learning and family access to services for young children. It serves more than 4,000 children. Thats really a good thing, because it opened up for any child of a homeless family thats involved with a program that offers case management, coalition Executive Director Janet Kahn said Wednesday. It wont be some random per son saying theyre homeless and needs child care. It has to be referred from an organization thats part of the Suncoast Partnership to End Homelessness. Kahn said Suncoast Partnership has a list of the different programs in the community that work with families and provide case management. We have memorandums of understanding with those organizations that they can refer families who need child care to us so we can Homeless Sarasota families get child careBy SCOTT LOCKWOODSTAFF WRITERFAMILIES | 6 span of time that began for him as a teenager while Manhattan, N.Y., SUN PHOTO BY BRENDA BARBOSABovio Bob Ceraolo, 90, and his wife Mary, 95, of Rotonda West will celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary Saturday.

The day began early Wednesday at Gulf Cove United Methodist Church. In whats become an annual tradition for nearly a decade, the church expects to serve 500 to 600 free Thanksgiving dinners from noon to 3 p.m. today. Everyone is invited, said Don Teague, a church member over seeing the preparation and serving of this years dinners. Besides those who come to the church, volunteers expect to deliver 100 meals to shut-ins and those without transportation. This is for young and old, rich and poor, Teague said. Anyone who wants to help serve meals today also is invited to join Teague and other church members. Volunteers busied themselves Wednesday cooking 30 turkeys, averaging 20 pounds each, along with 200 pounds of sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green beens, stufng and other trimmings that make a traditional Thanksgiving meal. I think they have some snowbirds around here, said Susan Morrow, a winter resident from Michigan. This church does a huge service for the community, and we make it a priority (that) were down here in time to help. Another volunteer, Marilyn Calladine, saw the free Thanksgiving meals as carrying out the churchs overall mission: To help people meet, know and serve Jesus Christ. Calladine also said she enjoys the camaraderie while preparing the Thanksgiving meals. St. Davids Episcopal Church volunteers also were busy Wednesday, preparing to serve more than 200 Thanksgiving dinners at Englewoods Indian Mound Park from noon to 2 p.m., for the homeless and lower-income families. St. Davids is carrying on the tradition church members started with Englewoods former Foursquare Church. Like Gulf Cove, Pat Knox said St. Davids plans to serve traditional dinners that also will include bread pudding and pumpkin and apple pies for dessert. I love being here, St. Davids volunteer Helen Rankin said as she nished preparing a serving of cranberry sauce. While not part of any church mission, Joanne and Owen Anders, the new owners of the End Zone sports bar and restaurant, are carrying on the eaterys tradition of serving free Thanksgiving dinners. Joanne said the restaurant served more than 300 dinners last year, and the Anderses are preparing to serve 400 to 480 dinners this year, from noon to 3 p.m. Thanksgiving is a time to come together, Joanne said. We dont want anyone to be alone. Anyone who wants can come (to the End Zone) and be with other people. Joanne said she and her husband recognize that many local residents have fallen on hard times. The End Zone also is working with Meals on Wheels and Englewood Transportation to deliver meals or provide a ride to the restaurant.

Sell your items in the Classifieds. Call (941) 206-1200 producers expressed concern about whether Joan Jett was an appropriate representative for an agriculturally oriented state like South Dakota, Jodie Anderson of the South Dakota Cattlemens Association told CNN. Jett said tofu-ey to the South Dakota oat. Ive decided to switch from South Dakota to another oat because peoples political agendas were getting in the way of what should be a purely enter tainment-driven event, Jett said in a statement this month. OK, she may not have said tofu-ey, but one can only guess how the Eat More Chikin Cows feel about this matter. Who is playing football today and what time? The day full of fun starts at 12:30 p.m. on FOX with the Green Bay Packers (5-5-1) versus the Detroit Lions (6-5). The Oakland Raiders (4-7) play the Dallas Cowboys (6-5) at 4:30 p.m. on CBS. The last NFL game of the day kicks off at 8:30 p.m. on NBC with the Pittsburgh Steelers (5-6) taking on the Baltimore Ravens (5-6). If you prefer college football, Ole Miss (7-4) plays Mississippi State (5-6) at 7:30 p.m. on ESPN. Im not a football fan. Are there any nonsports-related specials on today? Here are some options: Well-groomed dogs can be seen in The National Dog Show at noon on NBC. A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving airs at 8 p.m. on ABC. Lady Gaga & the Muppets Holiday Spectacular, is on at 9:30 p.m. on ABC. Im not going to pretend this isnt disturbing. Please keep Fozzie Bear away from the Gaga. My turkey turned out like Clark Griswolds. I dont feel like cooking. My dog ate my turkey. If any of these are true, there are still ways to enjoy a Thanksgiving Day meal.

You may nd other helpful tips at www.butterball.com or by downloading the free Butterball app. I forgot garlic, beer and toilet paper. Whats open? Walmart stores in Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, North Port, Arcadia and Englewood are open 24 hours. Winn-Dixie stores in the region also are open until 4 p.m. The Pilgrims were known for their beach parties (maybe they were). Will it be a good day for the beach? Let me answer this in two parts: For Floridians, it is expected to be sunny but cool, or even chilly. Highs are expected only in the upper 60s or lower 70s. Overnight lows may dip into the 40s. Brrr. For northern visitors, it is expected to be sunny and downright balmy with highs in the upper 60s or lower 70s. You may not even need a jacket tonight when temperatures remain above freezing. Enjoy your stay here. Happy Hanukkah! What? Its Thanksgiving and Hanukkah? How is this possible? The calendars happened to align this year. Many of us will never see this again. The two holidays wont match up again until 2070. It only seems appropriate then that we watch/listen to Adam Sandlers Thanksgiving Song and Chanukah Song. And then we can combine the lyrics: Thanksgiving is a special night. Jimmie Walker used to say, Dyn-o-mite! Thats right Hanukkah is a festival of lights. Instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights. Happy Hanukkah and Happy Thanksgiving.Email: cfeinberg@sun-herald.comTHANKSGIVINGFROM PAGE 1 MURDOCK The Charlotte County Homeless Coalition was able to give families like Beckie Tokarskis a little relief before Thanksgiving. The homeless coalitions holiday pantry helped many families Monday who either are homeless or, like Tokarskis, are not homeless but merely in need of help. If it wasnt for them, my children and I would not be having a Thanksgiving dinner, Tokarski said while waiting to enter the pantry. If (the food) was for (me and my husband), I wouldnt care. But its for them. The coalition is a community support organization that provides a number of services, including a weekly food pantry every Monday. Normally, families are allowed to come to the pantry once a month, but Mondays holiday pantry did not count as a monthly visit. Essentially, families were able to come twice this month. At the end of the day, 160 families took food home from the pantrys stores. Tokarski said the homeless coalition team is personable, and volunteers at the homeless coalition remember her name. Their efforts, she said, make the holidays better. I feel very blessed that they are here. In the pantry Monday, volunteer Terry Campaign said she has been to most of the food pantries in the county at one time or other. She wore a cast on her leg because she was supposed to have ankle surgery that day. But when her appointment got canceled, she came in. Campaign wasnt supposed to put weight on her ankle, but I just had to be here. Volunteering helps her cope with a loss in her life, Campaign said. In 2010, her 46-year-old son passed away. He was suffering from diabetes and severe injuries associated with a car accident. Campaign said that taking care of her son was my passion, and now this is my passion. In addition to the food pantry, the homeless coalition also offers hot meals for breakfast and dinner seven days a week. It has an emergency shelter and provides transitional housing. It also has a homeless prevention program that provides assistance to homeowners who are struggling nancially and are at risk of losing their home. The director of oper ations for the homeless coalition, John Fanning, said that every year donations, and the need for them, surges around the holiday season. Fanning compares the organizations donation-driven hunger prevention program to a father working paycheck to paycheck to put food on the table. Its like OK, are we going to be able to do this? Then, somehow, it works out. However, Fanning said that they could denitely use more help, and not just during the holidays. The homeless coalitions programs operate yearround, and while Fanning is thankful for the holiday surge in donations, the organization also needs help through the rest of the year. Everybodys hungry every day of the year, Fanning said.

Now we can use foundation money to extend beyond the time-limited referral or for a family that might need additional assistance related to child care. The coalition covers the cost of child care. It has contracts with sites that are considered school-readiness providers, meaning the sites meet criteria established by state legislation. The parent chooses a facility, then the coalition pays for the child care based on rates that it has established for various ages. Parents do have a co-pay, but for someone who has very little income, its nominal. Kahn said the coalition has served about 15 families countywide since the legislation took effect in July. She added that based on the numbers of homeless expert Dr. Robert Marbuts recent survey, showing there were 637 homeless childr en in Sarasota County theres potential to help at least 100 kids. Prior to getting state funding, the coalition was able to help about six children. Marbut maintains Englewood leads the county in homeless families, followed closely by North Port and Nokomis. Its a new service and people are still nding their way, Kahn said. Some of those children might already be in a shelter situation. Even though we see this broad number of homeless children out there, not all of them would necessarily need child care. The law also addresses children who are in domestic violence situations. Kahn said there already have been some referrals from the Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center of Sarasota County, and other domestic violence shelters. We want to be able to serve all the children who need it who are in a homeless situation, and what we see is that it provides a benet for the child in an early learning program where theyre getting education, (and) getting screenings and assessments, so we can catch any concerns early, Kahn said. If there are 100 children out there between the ages of 0 and 5 that need to be served, we want to be able to serve them, and as our community works on the issue of homelessness, hopefully the number of children in those situations will be reduced over time.Email: slockwood@sun-herald.comFAMILIESFROM PAGE 1Since Bobs hospitalization 10 weeks ago, and his subsequent stint in physical therapy, Mary visits her husband virtually every day. The couples only child, Anne Marie, or their 34-year-old grandson, Michael, drive Mary from Rotonda to North Port so she and Bob can have lunch together, share a few stories, and simply enjoy each others company. Its the hallmark of their marriage, they say. I can never remember them not together, Michael said. They worked together. They lived together. They went to the store together. They did laundry together. If she was washing dishes, he was drying. They were just always together. Bob remembered his rst date with Mary. It was 1942, and the two went to see the movie Random Harvest at Radio City Music Hall in New York. Bob lived in the Bronx, and Mary lived in Queens a trip that involved a walk to the bus, a bus to the train, a train to Queens, and some more walking. It was involved, Bob said. After about a year of dating, Bob proposed. Mary barely let the words get out of his mouth. The rst chance I could get, I went with him, she said with a chuckle. The two were married on Nov. 30, 1943 70 years ago, this coming Saturday by a justice of the peace, during a small ceremony at which Bobs mother served as witness. Bob, who was 20 at the time, was not legally of age to be married, so his mother had to sign a consent form approving of their nuptials. She signed the papers and then we went to her house, Mary said. We didnt have a honeymoon or anything like that. She made us a really nice dinner. We ate lamb chops, Bob remembered. Three months later, Bob was drafted, and Mary kept working at the shower curtain factory until it closed down. When Bob returned from war, the couple opened a trim shop, where Mary worked making buttons and Bob managed the store. After 16 years, the couple closed the shop because, as Anne Marie tells it, my dad was the kind of man that if you didnt have money for a spool of thread, he would say, Dont worry about it. You can pay me later. After closing the shop, Bob went to work for the U.S. Postal Service, where he retired after 20 years. When asked what the secret to their longevity has been, Mary said simply, He was good to me. Im very grateful. Bob looked at his wife warmly across a melting cup of ice cream and said, You love me thats why.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.comLOVEFROM PAGE 1 50452917 Monday Friday 10 a.m. 6 p.m.; Saturday 10:30 4 p.m. Not affiliated with Rolex W ESTCHESTER G OLD & D IAMONDS 4200-F TAMIAMI TRAIL, PORT CHARLOTTE (BEHIND ABC LIQUORS) 625-0666 Rolex Watches Service & Repairs Large Selection of Diamond Bezels & Dials EN&oFs k Uj1 SUN, LL`L Th`K_ `V` .11-W ^LP II LQL3o

The Sun /Thursday, November 28, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 7 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS CHARLOTTE HARBOR With a watchful eye, Yenni Guerra followed her three young children as they climbed up, down and over the Cracker cow, the shing boat and a huge tree fashioned at the newly renovated Bayshore Live Oak Park playground. Guerra made sure to help the littlest, 5-yearold Kassandra, navigate the many steps. But she wasnt too worried about anyone falling down because of the rubber impact surface covering the ground. Besides, they are all regular visitors, and are pretty familiar with the playground and its challenges. The kids like this park, Guerra, who lives in Punta Gorda, said Wednesday. I try to spend as much time as I can with my kids, and this is where we come. She also likes the new restrooms, built on stilts; and the picnic pavilion, where the family enjoys lunch or seeks shelter when it rains. Guerra is not alone. On any given day, especially on weekends and around the holidays, children and their parents ock to Bayshores play ground, which received a $650,000 makeover this past summer. It has become one of our most popular amenities, said Tommy Scott, director of Charlotte County Community Services. In fact, the county is planning to expand parking to accommodate the growing numbers that come to the playground and the entire park, which boasts two shing piers and plays host to a variety of neighborhood events. This week, the County Commission approved the purchase of two lots for additional parking, at a total cost of $26,000. At Tuesdays regular commission meeting, Charlotte Ventola, speaking as an observer who is also a member of the Charlotte Harbor Community Redevelopment Agency Advisory Committee, endorsed the decision, saying the park has become a destination for many. Its an ideal spot because we do need extra parking in the Bayshore area, and that faces our playground, she said. However she also raised the question of whether plans meet zoning requirements, saying the properties are residential but parking lots are allowed only in mixed-use areas. But Shaun Cullinan, a county planning and zoning ofcial, said he does not anticipate any problems because the parking lot could qualify either as an accessory to the park or as a commercial use. Ventola also asked what surface would be used for the parking lot, and if trees would have to be sacriced. Scott replied that a shell surface is planned. Our intent is for a shell parking lot, not asphalt, and to save as many of the trees as possible, he said. Currently, there are 67 parking stalls, including nine for the disabled, spread over ve different parking lots in the 10-acre linear park. In addition, there is a shell parking facility with 15 spaces near one of the shing piers. The two quarter-acre lots are expected to provide an additional 20 parking spaces, according to ofcials.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comMore parking coming to BayshoreBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITER Jonathan Guerra, 10, of Punta Gorda takes a ride on a distinc tive swing at Bayshore Live Oak Park.SUN PHOTOS BY GARY ROBERTSCharlotte County is buying two residential lots to expand parking at Bayshore Live Oak Park, which recently had its playground renovated. Yenni Guerra of Punta Gorda helps Kassandra, 5, climb the giant oak tree Wednesday at Bayshore Live Oak Park in Charlotte Harbor. Due to the popularity of the playground since its summer renovation, the county is planning to provide addi tional parking. Library parking lot renovationsCharlotte County will begin work Monday on the parking lot at the Mid-County Regional Library, 2050 Forrest Nelson Blvd., Port Charlotte. This project is expected to last approximately three weeks. Parking lot renovations will consist of removing and restoring damaged pavement and broken curbing. Areas subject to poor drainage will be corrected, followed by overall sealing and striping of the parking and driving surface. Following paving restoration, landscaping enhancements will continue. Library hours will not be affected, and nighttime parking lot lights will stay on as usual. Entry and exit to the library may be restricted at times, and parking areas will be limited. Construction areas will be well-marked so patrons will know where they may drive and park. Book-drop bins will be available throughout the construction, but will be in different locations as the work progresses.

ENGLEWOOD It started as an argument but turned into something out of the lm The Shining, when an Englewood woman allegedly stabbed a bedroom door with a knife because she couldnt get inside, according to a Sarasota County Sheriffs report. Ashley Bryn Crouch, 32, allegedly got into an argument with the 28-year-old male victim in their home around 6 p.m. Tuesday, a report states, but the reason for the argument is unknown.

Undeterred, Crouch then allegedly stabbed the bedroom door with a knife, leaving it sticking in the door. Crouch then punched the door, causing a crack, the report states.

Nathan Garced, 33, of the 1400 block of Kensaw Street, Port Charlotte, was charged with burglary and petty theft in connection with the incident, the report states, after he allegedly decided on Jan. 25 to enter the garage of a home on the 4500 block of Dakota Terrace in North Port, and take the cigarette. The 56-year-old victim and a neighbor chased Garced in a vehicle and eventually caught up to him at the intersection of Joyce Avenue and Dakota Terrace Garced offered the men a $5 bill for the single smoke, but the victim refused and demanded that Garced return to the home to wait for police, the report shows. Garced then allegedly took off, running into the woods and losing a sandal in the process. Police and K-9 units responded but couldnt locate Garced, and it wasnt until early morning Wednesday 11 months after the incident when authorities spotted a man who t Garceds description walking on Hillsborough Boulevard. Garced was placed into custody and transported to the Sarasota County Jail.

VENICE Roughly $51,000 in copper pipe and equipment was stolen from a low-income housing project site on Grove Terrace, the Venice mayor told City Council members this week. The theft took place more than a month ago and stalled the project. Completion of the low-income, mixed senior housing project will be delayed one to two months, said Mayor John Holic, who also sits on the Venice Housing Authority board. They opted not to fence in the project, Holic said of the contractor. That was on top of other bad news, like cost overruns, and the news that phase II of the project a separate building that will house lowincome families drew bad lottery numbers. The HUD-funded project a four-story Mediterranean style complex with a mix of reduced, subsidized rental units and public housing for seniors 62 and older relies on tax credits purchased by investors that are issued by the Florida Housing Finance Corporation. Theres almost a nonexistent chance to get additional funding for 2014, Holic said. The next chance for funding will be in 2015. Holic said hes already met with the city manager to see if theres a way the city can help out regarding the overruns. Holic said he wasnt referring to nancial assistance, but city expertise. That could include procurement or legal expertise. Two of the cost over runs had to do with vented range hoods in the kitchen, which were installed as ventless ranges, then retted. Anti-scalding valves had to be added, too. Holic said those two overruns came to around $100,000. Were trying to gure out on the blueprints what went wrong. Theyre supposed to know the Florida statutes, Holic said. Im just coming from the city side to help because they (Venice Housing Authority) were questioning how does this happen? Were trying to nd out where the responsibility lies.Email: ggiles@venicegondolier.comStolen copper latest bad news for Venice housing projectBy GREG GILESSTAFF WRITER SUN PHOTO BY GREG GILESAuthorities say $51,000 worth of copper tubing and wiring was stolen from this construction site on East Venice Avenue, a low-income housing project by the Venice Housing Authority. SARASOTA COUNTY The Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce is helping out an area food bank this holiday season. Sheriff Tom Knight presented a check for $5,000 to All Faiths Food Bank this week. According to the Sheriffs Ofce, the funds came from seized or recovered cash that went unclaimed, and per state statute can be distributed to a qualifying charity. All Faiths Food Bank continually demonstrates its commitment to this community, Knight said, and it is gratifying to be able to help our neighbors in a small but meaningful way. Last year, All Faiths distributed 6.2 million pounds of food equating to 5.2 million meals through 195 partner agencies and programs in Sarasota and DeSoto, according to information provided by the organization. Its mission is to feed those in need and educate the community about hunger and nutrition.

Come on folks, we are entering the season of goodwill and compassion to people of all stripes. He and his family need our prayers, not our condemnation.Richard R. Coppola Rotonda West Your vegetarian kid wont have to boycott the family dinner. You wont have to call the Poultry Hotline to keep your family alive. Fruits and vegetables dont have to carry government warning labels. You wont sweat the environment and food resources devastation guilt trip. You wont spend a sleepless night wondering how the turkey lived and died. Your body will welcome a holiday from saturated fat, cholesterol, and hormones. Our own dinner this Thanksgiving will feature a tofurky, lentil roast, mashed potatoes, corn stufng, stuffed squash, candied yams, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie.

That is the same tribe, of course, that famously gathered with the Pilgrims for what is often thought of as our first Thanksgiving. History disputes that belief and points out that not only did Native Americans celebrate a thanksgiving feast long before that event, but that other settlers in the new country we now call the USA had celebrations each fall to give thanks for a harvest of food that would see them through the winter. The traditional holiday that usually draws friends and family to the dinner table today began as a combination celebration of the harvest and a Puritan religious observance. Centuries ago, there was truly reason to give thanks. Those early pioneers had no grocery stores and no factories that provided food or goods. There was no mass transit, no automobiles, and horses and wagons were scarce. They had no fertilizer or sprays to help grow crops and protect them from insects. Their only tools were man-made. So, it is easy to imagine, when the crops were gathered and there was some indication they could make it until spring, the relief had to be exhilarating. Time to celebrate. In 2013, most of us dont have to worry about the harvest. We have grocery stores, restaurants and fast-food retreats galore. And, if only for a day, there will be bountiful feasts available through churches and char ity groups for anyone who is hungry. So, today we give thanks. We can block out all the problems with the Affordable Care Act. For at least a day we can not fret over what is happening in the Middle East with an exception for those who may have family or loved ones living or serving in the military there. Even if we are out of work, for this one day we can enjoy family, perhaps a meal and maybe even some football on television, or a game of touch football in the backyard with the kids. We hope that everyone can find something today for which to give thanks. Whether it is a meal, a friend, good health, being with family, a new job, an old job or the delight of watching massive inflatables make their way down city streets in person or on TV there are reasons to give thanks today. We also wish that the reasons we have to smile today can be carried over throughout the holiday season and beyond. It is an oft-repeated wish that we could all live our lives every day as most of us do on Thanksgiving. The idea is that people with that much love in their hearts can make a huge difference in the lives of others if they could continue to nd that selessness and that thrill of giving every day of the year. That may be too much to expect, and is certainly a lot to ask. But as we think back to the centuries-old celebrations by Native American tribes, perhaps there is a lesson in their traditions we can take to heart today. They had no job to go to every day just the challenge of staying alive and feeding themselves. They had no Black Friday bargains to wake up early for. They didnt even have the luxury of health care. But they were thankful. And we should be too. | LETTER SUBMISSION POLICYWill was wrong in JFK article Wild animals dont belong in circus Radel should resign his post Letter writer missed the facts Radel deserves a second chance Local restaurant deserves praise Holiday is for family and friends Reasons to not feast on turkeyEditor: George Will should stick to writing about baseball. His take on JFK and attempts to paint him as a conservative are wrong. Truth is his private desire to end Vietnam is historically documented. The mystery interviewer of RFK is questionable at best as no name is mentioned. I recall vividly RFK campaigning against the war prior to his assassination, as did Ted Kennedy then and years later! He was attempting, as Wills article states, to cut personal and corporate taxes. Looks to me that he meant all Americans, not just the privileged minority. Conservative economics may have worked better in JFKs time, and Will should know that the economy today is light years different than in 1963! His political tendencies are described in his book Proles in Courage. If by a liberal they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who cares about the welfare of the people, their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil liberties someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicion that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by liberal then Im proud to say Im a Liberal. Count me there also.Gary Brandt RotondaEditor: The Cole Bros. Circus, partnering with the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition was good for the community. Hopefully, in the not too distant future, circuses will stop using wild animals for entertainment purposes. (The UK government ban on wild animals in circuses will take effect in 2015.) No more elephants, camels, zebras or lions will be denied everything that is natural to them, conned to cages or boxcars, dragged around the country and forced to perform confusing tricks for human amusement. There will be no more incidents when elephants run wild in the arena, injuring people, or animals attack their trainers often resulting in the euthanizing of the creatures. When we take our children to view caged animals, we are not teaching them about good practices. We are simply watching nervous, anxious, pacing animals in an unnatural setting. Dont be fooled. The elephant, trained with a sharp hook, is not the same elephant found in the wild. Most of us cannot afford an African safari, but can easily access animals in the wild on television and DVDs.Barbara Jerszyk Rotonda WestEditor: I write this as a life-long conservative: Representative Trey Radel, recently convicted of cocaine possession, needs to resign his ofce and give another person the opportunity to serve. His family, friends and creator may forgive him, but the electorate will not. By the way, not all tea party supporters voted for him. My wife and I supported Paige Kreegel to ll the seat left vacant by Connie Mack.Dan Brubeck Punta GordaEditor: While reading letters to the editor in Sundays edition of the Sun Im assuming many of the residents of Charlotte County get their news from Fox. One letter had so many facts that have been proven to be lies. The title of this letter was Ashamed about choice of Obama. Have your Editor: I have a problem with the calling for Trey Radel to resign. Yes, what he has admitted to is a shame. But the shame is not on the people who voted for him. He and his family will have to endure this shame for many years to come. But this should not be the end of a career of a man who has much more to give the people of Florida. As I see it Patrick Kennedy of Rhode Island, a known cocaine abuser and alcoholic, was heralded as a very effective representative according to the Democrat Editor: We enjoy your articles recommending great places to visit and dine. We try to keep our spending local and, unless I missed something in the Sun you have over looked one of the best family-owned eating establishments in Port Charlotte; Jimmys. We have been going there for 17 years; first as snowbirds and now as permanent residents. They have been here for 29 years; family owned and need very little advertising. Their wonderful cuisine is spread mostly by word of mouth. I realize that advertising via the newsprint is your bread and butter, but occasionally there is an exception; so good, no need! Your staff might want to spend some time nding out how they survived through good and hard times. Im sure it wasnt easy other than for their product; good drinks, good food, with great staff. Jimmy and his beau tiful wife Christina were the tenders until recently when their children started to manage the enterprise. Jimmy is still there, but Christina now enjoys what grandmas do; taking care of their grandchildren. You should stop by and nd out more about this local family that has the best food in town.Ellie and Bob Shimko Port CharlotteEditor: What part of holiday do they not get? Dont feed the greed. Stay home with your family and friends. Sales will always be there, will your family? Happy Thanksgiving! P.S. Next year it will be Christmas open. Poor children, no Santa.Helen Krayanek Port CharlotteEditor: President Obama will get a break from Obamacare when he pardons the traditional Thanksgiving turkey. Each of us can also set aside our cares by pardoning a turkey and choosing a nonviolent Thanksgiving obser vance one that gives thanks for our good fortune, health, and happiness with a life-afrming, cruelty-free feast of vegetables, fruits and grains.
