claustrophobia.
It's time to step outside and breathe.
Oscar Scherer State Park, off U.S. 41
in Osprey, is a beautiful, inexpensive
place to escape the family or to bring
the family.
The 1,300-plus acres offer hiking
trails of varied lengths, campgrounds,
kayak/canoe rentals, wildlife watching,
informational Nature Center and a lake
for swimming (for those brave enough
to risk being alligator bait).
There are two main areas of the park
and both should be explored. I recom-
mend driving to the farthest parking
area first, which is near Lake Osprey
and Nature Center.
The Nature Center, or visitor center
as it's also called, offers an orientation
of the park. There are three short
videos that provide information about
the park and its inhabitants. There's a
very interesting diorama of a gopher
tortoise's habitat, and the other critters
that may be found in the hole as well.
The Nature Center also sells souvenirs.
In case you forgot to bring water,
drinks are available from the vending
machine.
As you walk outside the Nature
Center, take a quick hike on the trail
that loops Osprey Lake. Keep an eye
out for alligators, but more importantly,
keep an ear out for birds who may be
squawking or singing above your head.
If it's warm and you're so inclined, take
a dip in the lake (I did not as I maintain
a healthy respect/fear of alligators).
Once you are done exploring this
end of the park, drive back to the
South Creek Picnic Area. This is where
you can put in canoes/kayaks as well
as stroll through the Lester Finley
Trail. This is the easiest of the trails
to navigate. It winds along the water,
offering chances to hear fish jumping,
birds talking and squirrels scrambling
up trees.
Bring a lunch as there are numerous
picnic tables around the park. There
also are playgrounds near both of the
parking areas.
There are a variety of trails offered at
Oscar Scherer State Park. Here is some
information on the six trails, as provid-
ed in the trail brochure handed to you
at the Ranger Station:

hikers): "It is 5 miles of mainly level and

Travelers hit turbulence


Allegiant cancels 4 flights at Punta Gorda Airport


By GARY ROBERTS
STAFF WRITER
PUNTA GORDA Having checked
out of their hotel before arriving at the
Fort Wayne, Ind., Airport on Monday,
Rachel Wallace and her three girls al-
ready knew their flight to Punta Gorda
had been canceled.
But it wasn't a problem, she said,
because Allegiant Air promised on its
website that passengers would be pro-
vided free hotel lodging for the night.
And then it was a problem.


As it turned out, airport cots were
the only thing reserved for Wallace's
children, ages 9, 7 and 5. And without
carrying-around money for what was
supposed to be a two-hour flight,
Wallace was left to feed her kids cookies
throughout the night. The next morn-
ing, a fellow weary traveler gave the
Wallaces $20 for breakfast.
"It's been a long two days," Wallace
said after landing at the Punta Gorda
Airport around noon Tuesday.
According to Allegiant officials, due to
weather and staffing issues, two dozen


flights were canceled over the holiday
weekend mostly Monday flights
rescheduled for Tuesday including
four at the Punta Gorda Airport.
From Naples to Venice, family and
friends came to the airport many for
a second time to pick up passengers
whose long holiday weekend stretched
even longer.
Common complaints were shared
about travelers missing a day of work
and the inconvenience of passengers

his first major

Sheriff's hound gets paws wet


By ADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER
When an 80-year-old man was
reported missing Sunday in North
Naples, the Collier County Sheriff's
Office called upon a 16-month-old for
help.
Binks, the Charlotte County Sheriff's
Office's young bloodhound, and his


handler, Deputy First Class John Mills,
assisted dozens of authorities in the
27-hour search for George Searle.
The elderly man had been missing
since early Sunday, and was without
needed medicine. Binks and Mills
arrived to help about 12 hours after
the man was believed to have left the
area. Although the K-9 led his handler
to a nearby marina rather than to


the subject, whom deputies spotted
unharmed under some hedges in a
heavily shrubbed area Monday -
the hound got some much-needed
real-world experience under his collar.
"It was his first major search where
the subject stayed in the area," Mills
said. "He's very young. As he matures,

PUNTA GORDA Long before
the downtown area was buzzing
with eateries, hotels and music
venues, one restaurant was
leading the pack.
River City Grill in the heart
of the city's downtown jumped
onto the scene back when the
area was a lot less social and a
whole lot sleepier.


In the decade since, the
restaurant has weathered a nat-
ural disaster, a housing bust, and
the longest economic downturn
seen in this lifetime. Yet, through
it all, River City Grill remained
stalwart. When most restaurants
and bars packed it up, River City
kept going.
Saturday, the popular
eatery will celebrate its 10th

rescheduled.
Making it more diffi-
cult was that Price was
traveling by herself with
two small children.
"She spent the morning
walking around with a
phone to her ear," said
John Price, Alison's father-
in-law, whom she was
visiting in Naples. "Keep
your fingers crossed,
they're not on board yet.
The prices are great, but
it's a roll of the dice."
James Parish, assistant
airport director, said
four scheduled flights at
the Punta Gorda Airport
were pushed back from

specials. New upscale
items have been added
to the menu, including
New England dry-packed
scallops, lobsters and
duck breast. And Amaral
has started to refine his
wine list to offer more
upscale by-the-glass
selections.
It's all part of a larger
vision he held before
economic realities forced
the restaurant to get
"lean and mean." Now,
Amaral has his eyes
firmly set on the future. A
pioneer at heart, he saw
the city's potential long
before other restaurants
and bars followed suit.
It's that potential to
which Amaral still clings.
"If you had been in


decisions."
To be fair, authorities
weren't sure how Searle
exited his big apartment
building, so Binks may
not have picked up a
scent from the proper
area to begin with.
"And wind played a
factor," Mills said. "But
he's getting better at
tracking people."
The Florida
Department of
Corrections' DeSoto
Annex donated Binks to
the Charlotte Sheriff's
Office in May, when he
was still a puppy. Since
taking over for Justice
- the 8 12-year-old
bloodhound who retired
from the agency at the
end of August the
new K-9 had been called
to action twice before
Sunday, both times in


Monday to Tuesday,
citing Allegiant's expla-
nation that weather and
crew scheduling were to
blame.
"People get sick
on holidays," Parish
said. "Airlines cancel
flights and reschedule
them. Unfortunately, it
happens."
Parish said work crews
at the airport, which total
about 40 personnel, were
unaffected and operating
as usual on Tuesday.
However some folks af-
fected by the delays were
not as understanding.
A family of seven,

this town prior to the
hurricane, the energy
was fierce," he said. "Real
estate was selling; the
restaurant was full. You
could see this town was
a little rose just ready to
blossom into this beau-
tiful little Florida town. It
was just ready to roll."
Hurricane Charley's
ferocious impact in 2004
"took the wind out of it,"
Amaral said.
Still, he stuck with it.
A seasoned restaurateur
with an award-winning
restaurant in Naples,
Amaral is deeply loyal
to his family, his friends
and his business. In an
industry known for high
turnover, he has employ-
ees who have worked
with him for decades. It's
one of the secrets to his
success.
"I'm more proud of
that than anything," he
said. "I've been in Naples
for 23 years, and I have
people that have worked
with me the whole 23
years. Here, I've been

North Port.
In the first case, Binks
was tasked with tracking
a missing juvenile. The
hound picked up his
scent and led Mills to
the spot where the teen
got into a car and left.
In his second effort,
Binks was brought
in to find a missing
child. The mother had
forgotten someone else
was watching the kid,
so there was no one
actually missing for
Binks to find. So Binks'
most recent job was a
new test for both the K-9
and Mills.
"A dog by himself is
a dog, and a deputy by
himself is a deputy," said
Sgt. Duane Tucker, who
oversees the Charlotte
County's K-9 Unit. "The
idea is to teach them to

their Lexington-bound,
return flight on Tuesday
after visiting Bonita Bay.
Bob explained that family

five hours.
"That's three for three

"They're short-staffed."

pretty much unheard of

really am."
"I try to build a family
here," Amaral said. "I
use the word 'family' all
the time, and I walk that
walk."
He is "old school" that
way relationships,
one-on-one interactions
and face time are his
modi operandi, especially
when it comes to his
customers.
"That connection with
me makes a difference,"
he said. "They can tell
you're sincere. It's not
about the almighty dollar.
It's about the almighty
person. People can look
you in the eye and tell
that you care. That's what
built my business. People
knew that you care."
That's why Amaral
chose to have a

work together."
Mills has trained
Binks since the agency
received the dog. He's
the first bloodhound the
deputy has handled. But
Binks has good genes -
in 2009, his uncle, Max,
found a missing hunter
in the Everglades.
"They're definitely
different than a patrol
dog," said Mills, who
also manages a 3-year-
old Belgian Tervuren
named Boba, and used
to have a German
shepherd.
"Binks is always
happy, and more of a
let's-go-get-'em dog."

Sheriff's Office is the
closest agency to Collier
County that still has a
bloodhound in service.

"Bloodhounds are the

said Charlotte Sheriff's

handler for seven years.
The hounds also don't
bite a subject when they
find them, like other
dogs used in searches
are inclined to do. And
they need only a couple

can pick up scents after

Mail carriers put stamp on toy drive


By BARBARA
BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
To see the joy and
wonder in a child's face
on Christmas morning
is one of the memorable
pleasures of life.
For many area fam-
ilies, that joy is made
possible thanks only to
the U.S. Postal Service's
mail carriers' annual toy
drive for Toys for Tots.
Mail carriers through-
out Port Charlotte,
Punta Gorda and
Englewood will be col-
lecting new, unwrapped
toys on their routes on
Saturday. They'll also
accept the toys early if
someone wants to be
sure not to forget to put
toys out.
It's extra work for
the mail carriers, but a
labor of love.
"It's so much fun
when all the carriers
drive into the lot on
Saturday and we see
the toys everyone
collected," said carrier
Sharon Winesett, who
is in charge of the toy
drive for the area. Toys
should be new and not
wrapped, so organizers
can see into what age
category they fit.
Carriers and
certainly the families
who benefit from the
toys are grateful for

all donations, but they
usually receive far more
stuffed animals than
they can use. Better
choices are dolls, cars
and just about any other
type of toy.
Last year, local mail
carriers collected about
5,000 toys. Throughout
the Sun Coast district
- which runs from
Daytona Beach to
Naples and up to Tampa
-300,000 toys were
collected, said Alan
Friedman, the district's
toy drive coordinator.
This year, though,
getting enough toys is
more difficult.
"We usually put a flier
in mailboxes announc-
ing the toy drive, just
like we do for our annu-
al food drive," Friedman
said. "But this year,
with tight budgets at
the Postal Service, we're
not allowed to print
the fliers, so getting the
word out is tough."
Friedman actually
started the mail carriers'
toy drive about eight
years ago, modeling it
after the very successful
annual food drive. In
2011, people in the Sun
Coast district generous-
ly donated more than a
million toys, making it
the largest donation to
Toys for Tots.
But last year, with the
struggling economy,

toy numbers were way
down. The Marine
Corps League, which or-
ganizes the Toys for Tots
program, actually had
to cancel some families
who were on the list to
receive toys. Without
the fliers announcing
the collection, Friedman
worries that numbers
will be even lower this
year.
Toys can be left at
mailboxes or given
directly to the carriers.
They'll also accept cash
and checks made
payable to Toys for Tots
- but give those direct-
ly to the carrier. Post
offices in Englewood,
Punta Gorda and Port
Charlotte also have
drop-off boxes for toys.
Collecting toys on
their routes is a way for
the carriers to give back
to the communities they
serve, said Winesett,
and they're happy to do
it. And on Christmas
morning, those who

Help us find
the lights
Hey there, all you
masters of merriment!
You know who you are
- thousands of lights,
scores of inflatables,
armies of animatronics,
maybe even a real
partridge in a pear
tree every inch of
your home and lawn
heralding the holidays.
We, and your neighbors
who read the Sun, want
to know how to find
your dazzling displays.
Email a location (street
address and town/
area), along with a brief
description of your
featured attractions (i.e.
number of lights/in-
flatables, what seasonal
tunes you've synced
up to the light show, or
even when the guy in
the red suit might be
dropping by), to Marion
Putman, assistant
Charlotte editor, at
marionmputman@
gmail.com, or call
941-206-1183. If you're
feeling particularly
adventurous, you can
even email a photo of
your display, and we'll
try to get it in the paper.

chandelier, ceiling fans

authorities that he took
the items, which included
a Caffe Patina three-light
chandelier, a five-light

Windward brushed nickel
ceiling fans for a total
value of $601.
The suspect was held at
the Charlotte County Jail
Tuesday on $3,500 bond.

Duisberg still



celebrating peace


eter Duisberg,
93, died in June,
but even from his
grave, he's promoting
world peace.
A special "Celebration
of the Life of Peter
Duisberg" will be held
6:30 p.m. Thursday
at the Community
Presbyterian Church,
405 South McCall Road,
Englewood. His memo-
rial celebration will be
more an effort to pro-
mote peacemaking and
that would please Peter
more.
Peace activists,
Israeli Eliyahu McLean
and Palestinian Moad
Arqoub, Thursday will
discuss peace efforts
and reconciliation in the
Middle East. Duisberg's
sons and the Englewood
Peace Initiative
Coalition, of which Peter
was a founding mem-
ber, have planned the
celebration.
On the website www.
jerusalempeacemakers.
org, McLean, its founder,
is quoted as saying,
"People always ask me,
'Are you left wing or
right wing?' And I reply,
'It takes two wings to
fly.'"
And www.global
onenessproject.org
described McLean as a
grassroots peace-builder
in Jerusalem and the
Holy Land. Among
his accomplishments,
Eliyahu organized
monthly inter-religious
Israeli-Palestinian peace
gatherings in East and
West Jerusalem and co-
ordinates the Abrahamic
Reunion, a group
comprised of Christians,
Jews and Muslims.
Peter's wife -
Annabelle, who died
in 2007 and promoted
peace efforts with her
husband would
appreciate the South
American Israeli and
Armenian folk dancing
that is planned for
Thursday. She started in-
ternational folk dancing
groups in Chile, Panama

and Nicaragua.
Peter always credited
Annabelle for helping
him to evolve as a
human rights and peace
activist.
As a young man, Peter
told me, he first con-
fronted his prejudices
after attending a Quaker
prayer meeting in 1939.
Listening to a fellow
graduate student who
was Jewish taught him
the error of his anti-Se-
mitic views.
Duisberg earned a
doctorate in soils chem-
istry from University
of Arizona in the late
1940s. While there, he
did research on devel-
oping commercial uses
for desert plants. Soon
after, he was hired to
be a professor in the
chemistry department
at New Mexico A&M
in Las Cruces. In 1958,
he received a Fulbright
Scholarship to teach at
Universidad Catolica in
Santiago, Chile. He also
worked as a soil scientist
and served as director
of the Inter-American
Geological Survey in
Panama from 1964 to
1971.
In Englewood, Peter
started Peace Day
ceremonies in the
early 1990s. These were
traditionally held Dec.
31 coincidentally,
Peter's birthday. That's
when I first met him.
He encouraged me to


write occasional poems
for the first three annual
ceremonies.
And in the 1990s, when
conflicts raged in Bosnia
and Yugoslavia, Duisberg
was instrumental in
bringing local Albanian,
Serb and Croatian
residents together in
well-attended forums at
the Elsie Quirk Library.
He also led a success-
ful fundraising effort
to disarm a Croatian
minefield.
Peter was instrumental
in a fundraising effort
to send two Lemon Bay
High School graduates to
the International Global
Alliance Peace Summit
in 2011.
He'd be pleased that
others are carrying on
his and Annabelle's
commitment to peace.

I OUR VIEW


Tourism

numbers? We're

close enough
ou've got to love the
people at PolitiFact
Florida. They embody
the classic newspaper editor's
injunction: If your mother says
she loves you, check it out.
Just last week, the Pulitizer
Prize-winning fact-checking
website, which is operated
by the Tampa Bay Times and
the Miami Herald, seized on
a piece of marketing hyper-
bole from Gov. Rick Scott and
pumped it through the Truth-
0-Meter. It was the sort of
press-release white noise that
normally passes by without
notice. Not this time.
Boasting about recent
tourism increases, the gover-
nor's press office said, "... It is
clear why the Sunshine State
remains the top travel destina-
tion across the world."
The world? The top?
PolitiFact ran the numbers.
Turns out Florida holds up
well. There are varying ways
to juggle the metrics of tour-
ism, so "the top" is subject to
numbers nuance. But in terms
of "out-of-state overnight
visitors," the Sunshine
kicked other U.S. states with
91.5 million last year, far
surpassing the Golden
(61 million) and the Empire
(62 million).
The city of Las Vegas alone
had just under half of Florida's
overnight visitors, but the rest
of Nevada couldn't close the
gap. Remember the Alamo?
The Lonestar boasted
90 million "room nights" last
year, but that statistic didn't
weed out-of-state visitors from
in-state.
As for the rest of the
world, Europe remains an
attractive place: a very large
theme park of history, art,
food and culture. France leads
the way in both the Old World
and New, with a reported
83 million "international
visitors" last year. Ooh-la-la!
The entire United States, by
comparison, had 67 million.
Then there were other ways
of measuring tourism success.
For instance, if you count
"travel spending" which
involves a branch of math-
ematics called "guess work"
- California was tops among
U.S. states with $105 billion in
2011. Florida reported far less:
$71.5 million. And France?
Only $53.7 billion last year.
PolitiFact finally rated Scott's
claim "Mostly False" on the
Truth-O-Meter. We'd prefer to
call it "Partially True," which is
close enough in our book.


Let the Kiwanis

Christmas Card Land

ring in holiday

In case news stories and
videos of Black Friday
misanthropy knocked the
Christmas spirit out of you just
as the season began, a leisurely
stroll down the Punta Gorda
Kiwanis Christmas Card Lane
at Gilchrist Park is just the right
tonic for your troubled soul.
The supersized "cards" lining
the road through the park were
produced by businesses, social,
fraternal and religious orga-
nization and student groups,
the latter of which features
an reinterpretation of Edvard
Munch's "The Scream," as if old
Saint Nick himself had binged
onYouTube videos of 21st
century commercial excess.
More than 40 cards were
erected this year and award
ribbons already adorn winners
in five categories. You're free
to agree or disagree with the
results, but don't let that dim


the spirit of the season that this
annual display delivers just
in time.


LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

Beware the loss
of gun rights

Editor:
A political shift in power
has occurred on the West
Coast and Colorado. As
property values and taxes
increased in California,
the liberal left sold their
property and moved to the
states of Colorado, Oregon
and Washington. The effect
was a shift in the political
balance of power to the left
in those states. This shift to
the left is most evident in
the state of Colorado, where
overly restrictive gun con-
trol laws affecting the right
to bear arms granted by the
Second Amendment have
been enacted. This move
to the left has also driven a
number of rural Colorado
counties to attempt to
secede from the state.
This shift of political
power is also happening
within the state of Michigan,
where the liberal left is
moving from the Detroit
metro area to Traverse City
and northwestern Michigan.
The liberal left is gaining
strength as is evidenced by
voting records, an increase
in liberal letters to the
editors and establishment
of Democratic Party offices
in Traverse City and nearby
towns. Keep in mind that
these same liberal forces
that are moving to north-
western Michigan have been
in control of Detroit since
1962 and oversaw the 1967
riots and Detroit's demise.
Beware, Florida conser-
vatives and gun owners, as
the same disastrous effect
caused by these liberal
forces in Detroit could
also be repeated in Florida
including Charlotte County,
and the gun control mea-
sures enacted in Colorado
could also be enacted in
Tallahassee, should the
liberal left succeed in gaining
political control.

Local business
was competitive

Editor:
Recently we had occasion
to give our home a little
cosmetic makeover. Our
first thought was to replace
our carpeting in our master
bedroom. No longer wanting
carpet, we started on a jour-
ney to find the flooring we
liked best. Our top criteria
was flooring made in the


U.S.A. The flooring we chose
was made by Shaw from
Dalton, Ga.
We talked to businesses
from Bradenton to Punta
Gorda, comparing the same
name and brand. During
the Sun Home Show, we
came upon a young man, P.J.
Novosell, sales associate at
Hessler. To our surprise, the
exact color, distributor, etc.
was right there on the display
case.
We met with P.J. the next
day. We told him that we had
lived here for 17 years and
that each time we wanted
flooring we always stopped
there, but didn't purchase
anything because we felt the
prices were not competitive. I
told him whichever company
gave us the best price for the
very same product would get
our business. Most compa-
nies weren't even close with
the exception of a place in
Bradenton. The small differ-
ence in price made us realize
we wanted our business right
here in Punta Gorda. We were
well pleased with the final
price and installation.
Hessler has been a business
in our community since
1985, old reliable, but was
not competitive. The point of
this letter is to give Hessler
a second look; we did. They
are competitive. Support your
local businesses.

All the news
that's faux

Editor:
Letters from Obama-haters
bring up Benghazi, IRS, Fast
and Furious, and phony job
numbers.
It is obvious these writers
watch faux news, and read
ridiculous conservative writ-
ers' ratings. All of these have
been proven to have no basis
in fact. Top military brass stat-
ed nothing could have been
done to save the Benghazi,
Fast and Furious was started
long before Obama was elect-
ed, the IRS equally targeted
liberal fundraising groups,
and job numbers have always
been done the same way.
Saluting military personal
when not in uniform your-
self is not proper. President
Eisenhower, a former general,
did not salute when he was in
the White House and out of
uniform.
During the current admin-
istration we have seen stock
market record highs, house
prices rebounding, health
care for all, unemployment
down, troops coming home
from two wars, etc.
We keep hearing how
Obama lied about keeping


health plans and doctors, and
calls for impeachment, when
Bush/Cheney lied to get us
into war, over 5,000 dead,
over 2 trillion added to debt,
no one, not even Democrats
called for impeachment.
We still see comments
about Obama being born in
Kenya proven untrue, and
yet Ted Cruz, whom we know
for a fact was not born in the
U.S., is touted as presidential
material. Oh, I forgot, he isn't
black.

Laid-off LPN
is heartbroken

Editor:
I have enjoyed a career as
a professional LPN for over
45 years. During the past
20 years I have worked as an
emergency room nurse in
Pennsylvania, Miami, and
Port Charlotte, where I had
the privilege to work with
an awesome staff at Fawcett
Memorial Hospital.
On Nov. 13,1 was one of a
number of LPNs who were
laid off without warning. I was
called to a "meeting" where I
was handed my layoff letter
and promptly escorted to my
car in the parking lot. This
action by Fawcett, the first
in my lengthy career, has
broken my heart. The LPNs
at Englewood Hospital were
laid off last year, and now
the same has happened at
Fawcett. Reasons given to me,
and others, included "low
census, costs of health care,
and reduction of the work
force."
I was given a list of job
openings at other HCA-owned
facilities. Why would I even
apply, knowing that HCA has
already laid off the LPNs at
these facilities? While I am
applying for other jobs, my
passion is working in the
emergency room.
Fawcett Memorial Hospital,
you broke my heart! To all
of my former co-workers at
Fawcett, I am proud to have
worked with you and I truly
miss each of you. I wish you
all a happy holiday season.
I'm sure that you will under-
stand that mine won't be so
happy!

Please use hair net
when serving food

Editor:
Watching the news cover-
ing Thanksgiving I was and
am amazed at the wonderful
people giving their time and
effort to help feed those poor
and down on their luck. Truly


a miracle. Thank you for your
kindness.
One thing stood out,
however: No one seemed to
cover their hair while working
with and around open con-
tainers of food. One woman
especially stood out with
long flowing blond tresses
leaning over not one, but two
containers.
Please, ladies and
gentlemen, cover your head
and beard when handling
food. I cannot guess what it
would be like to find a 6-inch
hair in my mashed potatoes.
Yuk.
Thank you again for doing
this.

Sun did not
report all facts

Editor:
Why does the Sun's
ownership slant a story and
only print half the truth (facts)?
The Sun ran to Commissioner
Patricia Duffy's aid and
published several articles,
including their own opin-
ion, regarding two ethics
complaints against her.
The newspaper repeatedly
slammed those who filed the
ethics complaints against
her. The Sun also support-
ed the Charlotte County
Commission's decision
to make all taxpayers pay
for Duffy's $300-per-hour
Tallahassee lawyer. The Sun
also enthusiastically sup-
ported Duffy chasing down
the two citizens who filed the
complaints and make them
pay her high-falutin' attor-
ney's bill.
Why didn't the Sun
inform the public that
Charlotte County Commission
Chairman Christopher
Constance also had two ethics
complaints filed against him
in September of 2013? Both
Constance's and Duffy's ethics
complaints had the exact
same ruling, dismissed for
lack of legal sufficiency. The
only difference was the Sun
didn't bother to tell the public
about the Ethics Commission
September 2013 press release
regarding Constance's com-
plaints, and Constance is not
trying to rip off Charlotte
County taxpayers for an
extravagantly priced
Tallahassee attorney.
Citizens must always hold
the press accountable. Just
because something is pub-
lished in this newspaper
doesn't mean it isn't slanted to
the viewpoint of the newspa-
per's owners. Freedom and
liberty are not free! Do your
own research at www.ethics.

Christianity is
not a religion

Editor:
In regard to the letter of
Nov. 27 by one man who
criticizes another who only
wants a traditional Christmas.
Christianity is not a religion.
It is a philosophy of which
anyone may be included.
You exclude yourself from
the celebration and then are
angry at millions of others who
harmlessly enjoy the Christmas
season.
One writer suggests the
other talk to his clergy about
the golden rule. I say to you,
you obviously are hateful of
believers. Why not try "live and
let live?" Merry Christmas.

Trail and Mud Run attracts 250 participants


On the Saturday
before Thanksgiv-
ing, the second
annual Tippecanoe Trail
and Mud Run was held
at Tippecanoe environ-
mental park. More than
250 people of all ages
ran through mud and
tackled obstacles such as
a 10-foot wall. Organized
by Charlotte County
Community Services,
the event included a 5K
and 10K slippery obsta-
cle course constructed
within the environmental
park with no permanent
effects to the natural
habitats. The participants
had to climb through the
weaving spider webs,
scale a vertical wall,
jump or crawl under
hurdles, scramble up a
cargo climb, slip down
the water slide and crawl
through the mud pit.
Awards for participants
in their age groups were
customized military-style


dog tags instead of tradi-
tional medals and overall
winners received slate
plaques and cash awards.
At the conclusion of the
race the participants were
treated to a pulled pork
lunch. Next year's third
annual event is already
scheduled for Nov. 22,
2014. Save the date.

Tourism up
The Charlotte Harbor
Visitor & Convention
Bureau has reported
that tourist develop-
ment tax revenues
collected during fiscal


year 2012-2013 totaled
$2,533,627. This number
is an increase of 6 per-
cent over the prior Fiscal
Year 2011-2012. Even
more significant is that
it is a record amount -
since the VCB's inception
in 1997, this is the most
TDT revenues Charlotte
County has collected
in one fiscal year. TDT
is a tax paid by visitors
when accommodations
are rented, including
hotel rooms, short-term
housing rentals, and RV
park spaces.

Fire/EMS updates
Recent changes in
the child care standards
of the Department of
Children and Families
Florida Administrative
Code require fire extin-
guisher training for child
care facility personnel.
To meet the needs of our
community, Charlotte


County Fire/EMS put to-
gether a class which will
provide fire extinguisher
training tailored to child
care facilities' needs. The
first two classes were
filled within less than
48 hours of the training
announcement. Another
class will be held Dec. 10,
and another may be
scheduled sometime
in January based on
demand. For more infor-
mation on the child care
fire extinguisher training
class at the Public Safety
Complex in Punta Gorda,
call Charlotte County
Fire/EMS headquarters,
at 941-833-5600 during
regular business hours.

Fire station
Fire Station 6 on
Disston Avenue in Punta
Gorda is nearing com-
pletion of a remodel with
only a couple of final
inspections remaining.


The station is a metal
structure built in 1982
and needed refurbish-
ing or replacement of
air-conditioning systems,
plumbing, lighting,
and some interior and
exterior details. Once the
contractor is finished,
furniture will be placed
back in, telephone and
computers connected,
and radio equipment
installed. The station has
been closed since late
spring of this year, with
personnel redistributed to
other stations to help with
the extra coverage. Fire
Station 6 is projected to
reopen later this month.

Parkside Festival
In mid-November sev-
eral county departments
participated in the 2013
Parkside Fall Festival and
co-sponsored the event
with Team Parkside. The
second annual festival


drew 600 people this
year. Community ser-
vices organized the Kids
Zone providing games,
face painting, and bal-
loon sculptures, and 4-H
booth. The kids also en-
joyed the Touch-a-Truck
display, made possible
in part by the Charlotte
County Fire/EMS, the
public works department
and Waste Management.
The Port Charlotte
Public Library provided
books to children at no
cost. Master Gardeners
were also present as
were the Friends of the
Port Charlotte Library.
Despite a wet start, the
event was a success and
all who attended enjoyed
a great community event.

Assembly policy statement addresses


he 2013 Charlotte
Assembly Policy
Statement was
recently completed and
posted on the county's
website, www.charlotte
countyfl.gov. One of the
topics discussed con-
cerned the infrastructure
sales surtax and whether
the current program met
citizen expectations. A
high number of partici-
pants expressed satisfac-
tion projects were well
selected and produced
tangible results. Addition-
al comments included:
1 percent sales tax
provides the broadest tax
base (includes visitors
and seasonal residents
in addition to full-time
residents).
Communication of
project status information
needs enhancement.
Citizen's advisory
committee be formed to
review and recommend
specific projects for
funding.
There was also consider-
able discussion about the
pros and cons of extending
the 1 percent tax beyond
Dec. 31, 2014.


Pros


Source of revenue for
needed capital projects.
Broadest tax base.
Approximately 30 per-
cent of tax proceeds come
from seasonal residents,
visitors and guests of
full-time residents.
Referendum provides
county voters opportu-
nity to decide whether to
tax themselves or not.
Tax proceeds provide
for infrastructure im-
provements that would
be otherwise unaffordable
in the annual operating
budget without increas-
ing property taxes.

Cons
Still a tax that
also has a negative


impact on lower income
population.
Removing the tax
might benefit the
local economy through
increased sales.
Removing the tax
might make the county
more competitive with
neighboring counties that
do not impose the tax.
Local government
may become too depen-
dent on the 1 percent tax
proceeds.
More capital projects
completed results in
increased maintenance
costs in operating
budget.

Holly Days
Holly Days kicked off
last Thursday evening as
part of Gallery Walk in
downtown Punta Gorda.
Attendees, including
Mayor Rachel Keesling,
Vice Mayor Carolyn
Freeland and Council
members Tom Cavanaugh
and Nancy Prafke,
were greeted by special
visitors, Santa Claus and
the penguins, from the
North Pole.


Newsletter
The Fall/Winter Edition
of The CITY HALLways
newsletter is now available
on the city's website, www.
pgorda.us, under What's
New. Inside readers will
learn more about the
new pumpout boat, City
Council reorganization
including a message from
your new mayor, the
Complete Streets Program,
and much more.

Lot mowing
At today's meeting, City
Council will address a
resolution setting forth
the city's intent to place
the FY 2015 lot mowing
program bills on the
property tax bill as a non
ad valorem assessment.
In this manner, admin-
istrative costs will be re-
duced and delinquencies
will be greatly reduced.
City Council will also re-
ceive a staff presentation
regarding a revised right
of way mowing plan for
the non-special residential
overlay areas of the city.
Areas along U.S. 41 and


U.S. 17 under a mainte-
nance contract with the
Florida Department of
Transportation and deep
ditches where special
mowing equipment is
required will still be
mowed by city or con-
tract forces. Remaining
property owners will be
responsible for mowing
their rights of way.

Tourism data
As published by the
Charlotte Harbor Visitor
& Convention Bureau,
tourist development
tax revenues collected
during FY 2013 totaled
$2,533,627 which is a


ales tax

6 percent increase over
FY2012 ($2,388,928).
Since the bureau's incep-
tion in 1997, the above
amount in FY 2013 rep-
resents the most collected
in a fiscal year. The county
levies a 5 percent tax on
accommodation stays six
months or less. The first
3 percent pays for tourism
promotion and marketing,
while the remaining
2 percent are earmarked
to fund debt service for
Charlotte Sports Park
renovations.

New coordinator sets course for YMCA sailing


By BARBARA
BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Marilyn Whitten has
big plans for getting
people out on the water.
As the new outreach
coordinator for the
sailing program at the
Charlotte County Family
YMCA, her mission is
to get water programs
going, first for children,
and then for everyone.
"We need volunteers

IF YOU GO
What: Meet Marilyn Whitten
When: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Tuesday
Where: Bayfront Center,
750W. Retta Esplanade, Punta
Gorda


to teach people how to
sail, as well as people
with safety skills and
motor boats anyone
willing to share their
knowledge," Whitten
said.
The program also
needs grant writers who
can help secure the nec-
essary funding, as well
as donations of boats.
All are invited to meet
Whitten from 5 p.m. to
7 p.m. Tuesday at the
Bayfront Center, 750 W
Retta Esplanade, Punta
Gorda.
"I am looking forward
to meeting people from
the community who
want to be involved
in the YMCA's sailing
program," Whitten said.
"Together, we can make
it happen."


Whitten grew up sail-
ing on Long Island. She's
been in this community
more than 20 years,
and knows firsthand
how strong the boating
community is, along
with the
-. members'

to pass
'a willingness

on their
knowledge.
Her plans
S are to start
WHITTN with holi-
WHITTEN day sails in
December and January,
then to begin offering
classes for youth, much
like the Y did with last
summer's sailing camp,
which was attended by
78 youths.
After the sailing cen-
ter is established, she


envisions boat rentals,
family boating mem-
berships, race teams,
fishing and kayaking -
not just for youths, but
for people of all ages.
"What I see in the
future is 100 sails in the
harbor on a beautiful


Florida day," YMCA
CEO Randy Dunn said,
regarding the future of
the sailing program.
If you have a small
sailboat or powerboat
you no longer use and
can donate it to the
YMCA, or to volunteer

Meet your Englewood, Charlotte firefighters


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
ENGLEWOOD No

but both the Englewood
Area Fire Control District
and Charlotte County

to meet and spend time
with the public.
The Englewood Area

sor an estate-garage
sale from 8 a.m. to
3 p.m. Thursday and
Friday at the district's


administration office,
516 Paul Morris Drive,

The sale will benefit
scholarships for students
of the fire district's fire
academy in the name of
Billie June
'B.J.' Batchelor.
Batchelor, 56, died
in June, less than two
months after her retire-
ment. She had served
the fire district since its
inception in 1983 and
had been a dispatcher
for what had been the


Englewood volunteer fire
department.
The EAFD also invites
the public to its open
house, scheduled from
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 14
at the Englewood Plaza,
200 South Indiana Ave.,
between West Cowle
Street and Palm Grove
Avenue.

come and see what the
fire district has to offer,"
Englewood Fire Chief
Scott Lane said. "You can
meet the guys and get


Hearing


fire safety tips."
The open house will
include firefighting
exercises, a bounce
house, free hot dogs,
cotton candy and snow
cones. The Englewood
firefighters will also be
distributing bicycles
from its Englewood
Firefighters Benevolent
Fund "Bikes for Tykes"
project. The Englewood
firefighters collected
donations to brighten

Take time to take in some art activities


I hope everyone en-
joyed their Thanksgiv-
ing/Hanukah dinners.
Now we are in the rush
to Christmas. I hope
you will take the time to
enjoy a few art activities.
It's a perfect way to slow
down and enjoy family
and friends amid the
frenzy of the holidays.
For instance, tonight
is opening night for "The
Christmas Cactus" at
Lemon Bay Playhouse.
The holiday season show,
directed by Bob La Salle,
turns Christmas into
a dickens of a holiday
for private investigator
Cactus O'Riley as she
solves mysteries, delivers
small miracles and takes
a second chance on love.
The show runs through
Dec. 22. Curtain times
are 7:30 p.m. Wednesday
through Saturday,


and 2 p.m. for Sunday
matinees. Tickets are $18
and are available online
at www.lemonbayplay
house.com, or by calling
or visiting the box office
at 941-475-6756. Box
office hours are 10 a.m.
to 2 p.m. weekdays. Flex
Pass tickets are available
at a reduced cost.

Burnt Store
Presbyterian Church
presents "A Symphony
of Creches," hosted by
the Worship Ministry, at


5 p.m. Friday. Displayed
throughout the church's
worship area will be
more than 50 beautiful
nativity scenes, on loan
from church families.
After guests have
browsed all of the
creche scenes, munched
on holiday treats and
listened to holiday
music, the evening
concert will begin at
6:30 p.m. Entitled Creche
Symphony, there will
be four movements of
music. Each movement
will feature a different
performing group of the
church's music ministry:
peace, hope, joy and love.
The evening will come
to an end with a live
nativity in front of the
church.

Detroit pensions in trouble


Judge rules city can alter employee contracts
By ED WHITE measured approach and warned city
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER officials that they must be prepared 1


DETROIT A federal judge ruled
Tuesday that Detroit can use bank-
ruptcy to cut employee pensions and
relieve itself of other crushing debts,
handing a defeat to the city's unions
and retirees and shifting the case
into a delicate new phase.
Judge Steven Rhodes, who won-
dered aloud why the bankruptcy
had not happened years ago, said
pensions can be altered just like
any contract because the Michigan
Constitution does not offer bullet-
proof protection for employee ben-
efits. But he signaled a desire for a


to defend any deep reductions.
"This once proud and prosper-
ous city can't pay its debts. It's
insolvent," Rhodes said in formally
granting Detroit the largest public
bankruptcy in U.S. history. "At the
same time, it also has an opportuni-
ty for a fresh start."
The ruling came more than
four months after Detroit filed for
Chapter 9 protection.
Rhodes agreed with unions and
pension funds that the city's emer-

their bill go from $95.20

A spokesman for FPL

WASHINGTON (AP)
- Seeking to regroup
from his health care
law's disastrous rollout,
President Barack Obama

Republican critics that
he would fight any

WASHINGTON
(Bloomberg) -Americans
have been holding on
to their wobbly washing
machines and sagging
sofas even longer than their
grandparents did 50 years
ago, setting the stage for
a rebound in consumer
spending as old household
goods wear out.
The average age of
consumer durable goods
- long-lasting items such
as furniture, appliances and
computers is the highest
since 1962, according to
data from the Bureau of
Economic Analysis dating
to 1925. Among things
Americans are keeping for
the longest time: jewelry
and wristwatches, and
home and garden tools like
lawnmowers.
Replacement purchases,
overdue after the worst
recession since the
Great Depression, would


boost the consumer
spending that accounts
for 70 percent of the
economy. Automobile sales
are headed for their best
year since 2007, showing
Americans have the
financial security to buy
more expensive items, and
economists say that means
household-goods sales will
pick up.
Such purchases are
"postpone-able for only so
long," said John Silvia, chief
economist for Wells Fargo
Securities in Charlotte,
N.C., the biggest U.S.
mortgage lender. Increases
in home values, along
with gains in consumer
confidence, incomes
and employment from
recessionary lows, make
"people sense it's worth
putting money back into
that house" with purchases
such as appliances, he said.

the only two of 17 catego-
ries the BEA tracks that saw
a decrease in average age in

released Nov. 14. The aver-
age age ofjewelry was 5.3
years, the oldest since 1942,
while that of home and
garden tools was 5.1 years,
the highest since 1961. The
categories include products
that typically last at least
three years.
The data show a
replacement cycle that
started in the post- World
War II era as people
moved to the suburbs and
made purchases to set
up their households, said
Neil Dutta, head of U.S.
economics at Renaissance
Macro Research in New
York.
The average age of goods
rises during an economic
downturn, and "towards
the middle of an expansion,
you tend to see these


numbers start to come
down, and that means
people are buying more
stuff," said Dutta, who
projects durables purchases
will pick up next year.

demand," he said.
"People who have lived
with one burner or two
burners on their stove that

outlook and employment
and even wage increases,"
Bergeth said. "They're
increasingly coming
back into the market and
replacing that range."


Union official: Train


engineer
YONKERS, N.Y (AP)
-The engineer whose
speeding commuter train
ran off the rails along a
curve, killing four people,
caught himself nodding at
the controls just before the
wreck, but it was too late, a
union official said Tuesday.
William Rockefeller
"basically nodded," said
Anthony Bottalico, leader
of the rail employees union,
relating what he said the
engineer told him.
"He had the equivalent
of what we all have when
we drive a car. That is, you
sometimes have a momen-
tary nod or whatever that


nodded
might be. How long that
lasts, I can't answer that."
Rockefeller's lawyer did
not return calls. During a
late-afternoon news confer-
ence, federal investigators
said they were still talking
to Rockefeller, and they
would not comment on his
level of alertness around
the time of the Sunday
morning wreck in the
Bronx.
Separately, however, two
law enforcement officials
said the engineer told
police at the scene that
his mind was wandering
before he realized the train
was in trouble, and by
then it was too late to do
anything about it. One of
the officials said Rockefeller
described himself as
being "in a daze" before the
wreck.
The officials, who were
briefed on the engineer's
comments, weren't
authorized to discuss the
investigation publicly and
spoke on condition of
anonymity.

Report: Ariel
Castro committed
suicide

(LA Times) -Ariel
Castro, the Cleveland bus
driver who held three
women captive for years
before they escaped,
committed suicide by
hanging in his cell and
did not die of autoerotic
asphyxiation, consultants
to the Ohio prison system
determined, according to
a report released Tuesday.
The 25-page report, by
consultants Lindsay M.
Hayes and Fred Cohen
for the Ohio Department
of Rehabilitation and
Correction, examined the
incidence of suicides in
the state prison system
where 32 people killed
themselves in the five-
year period beginning in
2009. Ten suicides were
reported this year, the
report states.

TSA passenger fee
hike proposal spurs
airlines to lobby
WASHINGTON
(Bloomberg) Eager to
find new revenues to fend
off automatic spend-
ing cuts next month,
Republicans are embrac-
ing an increase to the
so-called Sept. 11 security
fee on U.S. airline tickets
they've long resisted.
It's one of the few
money-raisers that has
bipartisan support in
budget negotiations, even
as its surprise emergence
mobilized resistance
from airlines in the U.S.
and abroad, the Air Line
Pilots Association and the
Consumer Travel Alliance.
"The threat of a TSA
passenger tax increase is
painfully real," said Sean
Kennedy, senior vice
president, global govern-
ment affairs at Airlines for
America, aWashington-
based trade group. "If
there's a deal assembled,
there's a strong chance

Audit: Health
care subsidies
vulnerable to fraud

WASHINGTON (AP)
- More troubles for the
health care overhaul.
Subsidies to help people
buy insurance under
the law may be vulner-
able to fraud, a Treasury
Department watchdog
said Tuesday in a report
suggesting that concerns
about the law are far from
over.
The rollout of the
law has been hurt by
canceled policies and
problems with the
federal website used by
people to enroll in health
plans, causing political
headaches for President
Barack Obama and for
Democrats in Congress.
The new problems
concern subsidies that
are available to low- and
medium-income people
who buy health insurance
through state-based
exchanges that opened in
October.
Those subsidies are ad-
ministered by the Internal
Revenue Service in the
form of tax credits, and
that's where the trouble
arises.

Black Friday good
for automakers
(LA Times) A month-
end sales surge helped
automakers post strong
November sales.
General Motors Co., the
nation's largest auto sell-
er, said its U.S. sales rose
14 percent in November
to 212,060 vehicles,
compared with the same
month a year earlier.
It was the automaker's
best November in six
years and demonstrated
how Black Friday week-
end sales extend from the
shopping malls to auto
dealer lots.
"The Thanksgiving
weekend saw a lot of
promotion by automak-
ers, riding the Black
Friday wave, and it seems
to have paid off," said
Michelle Krebs, an analyst
with auto information
company Edmunds.com.

Report: Monday
was biggest online
shopping day ever
(LA Times) Bargain-

Cyber Monday broke
consumption records,
making the online
shopping bonanza the
biggest e-commerce day
in history, according to
data from IBM Digital
Analytics Benchmark.
Online sales surged
20.6 percent compared
with the same day last
year, with the most
active e-shopping
cities including New
York; Washington, D.C.;
Chicago; Los Angeles;
and Atlanta, according to
IBM.
Cyber Monday capped
the highest five-day on-
line consumption period
in the books, as sales
boomed 16.5 percent over
the same stretch last year.
Retail gas prices
in US decline
(Bloomberg) U.S.
retail gasoline fell for the
first time in three weeks,
led by a decline in the
Midwest region, as refin-
ers restored production.
Regular, unleaded
gasoline at filling stations
averaged $3.272 a gallon
in the seven days through
Monday, down 2.1 cents
from a week earlier, the
Energy Information
Administration said
on its website. Prices
are 3.6 percent below
year-earlier levels. The
biggest drop was in the
Midwest, where the motor
fuel lost 7 cents to $3.121.
U.S. pump prices are
near a three-year sea-
sonal low as refiners take
advantage of cheaper
domestic crude supplies
to produce a record
amount of the fuel.

Ukraine fails to pass
no-confidence vote
KIEV, Ukraine (LA
Times) Ukraine's
opposition movement
suffered a setback in their
confrontation with the
country's Russian-backed
president Tuesday when
a vote of no confidence in
the government failed in
parliament.
Thousands of pro-
testers who waited for
several hours of the
chilly afternoon outside
the parliament building
in Kiev angrily chanted
"Shame!" and "Down
with the gang!" However,
they refrained from a
threatened attack on
the building, which was
guarded by riot police,
after they learned that
the measure received 186
votes in favor, 40 short of
what was needed.
After several days
of mass protests
over President Viktor
Yanukovich's refusal
to sign the trade and
association agreement
with Europe, the opposi-
tion leaders counted on
support from communist
lawmakers and defectors
from the ruling Party of
Regions faction to pass
the measure. A vote of
no confidence was seen
as a first step in bringing
down the government.
Bob Dylan charged
in France over
Croatia remarks
PARIS (AP) French
authorities have filed
preliminary charges
against Bob Dylan over a
2012 interview in which
he is quoted comparing
Croatians to Nazis and
the Ku Klux Klan.
The charges of "public
insult and inciting hate"
were filed against the mu-
sician in mid-November,
Paris prosecutor's office


spokeswoman Agnes
Thibault-Lecuivre said
Tuesday.
They stem from a
lawsuit by a Croatian
community group in
France over remarks in an
interview in Rolling Stone
magazine in September
2012.
Speaking about race
relations in the United
States, Dylan was quoted
as saying: "If you got a
slave master or Klan in
your blood, blacks can
sense that. That stuff
lingers to this day. Just
like Jews can sense Nazi
blood and the Serbs can
sense Croatian blood."
A lawyer for the
Croatian group, Ivan
Jurasinovic, said it is not
seeking monetary dam-
ages but wants Dylan, "a
singer who is liked and
respected in Croatia, to
present an apology to the
Croatian people."
Report: No
proof Arafat
was poisoned

PARIS (AP) Extensive
reports by French scien-
tists into Palestinian leader
Yasser Arafat's death have
ruled out poisoning by
radioactive polonium, his
widow said Tuesday. The
results contradict earlier
findings by a Swiss lab, and
mean it's still unclear how
Arafat died nine years ago.
Scientists from several
countries have tried to de-
termine whether polonium
played a role in his death
in a French military hos-
pital in 2004. Palestinians
have long suspected Israel
of poisoning him, which
Israel denies.
After a 2012 report
that traces of radioactive
polonium were found on
Arafat's clothing, Arafat's
widow filed a legal com-
plaint in France seeking an
investigation into whether
he was murdered.

US vet detained in N. Korea


oversaw guerrilla group


SEOUL, South Korea
(AP) Six decades before
he went to North Korea as
a curious tourist, Merrill
Newman supervised a
group of South Korean
guerrillas during the
Korean War who were
perhaps the most hated
and feared fighters in the
North, former members
of the group say.
Some of those guerril-
las, interviewed this week
by The Associated Press,
remember Newman as a
handsome, thin American
lieutenant who got them
rice, clothes and weapons
during the later stages
of the 1950-53 war, but
largely left the fighting to
them.
North Korea apparently
remembered him, too.
The 85-year-old
war veteran has been
detained in Pyongyang
since being forced off
a plane set to leave the
country Oct. 26 after a
10-day trip. He appeared
this weekend on North
Korean state TV apologiz-
ing for alleged wartime
crimes in what was
widely seen as a coerced


statement.
"Why did he go to
North Korea?" asked
Park Boo Seo, a former
member of the Kuwol
partisan unit, which is
still loathed in Pyongyang
and glorified in Seoul for
the damage it inflicted on

they recognized Newman
from his past visits to

of his detention was

high glucose levels that

And you're thinking you've

New research finds that

Passenger on
flight did not have

LOS ANGELES (LA

tests, health officials
determined Tuesday that a

Based on reports that
the passenger had the
contagious airborne

man was pulled from a

Saturday by security
officials who warned other
passengers to get tested
for TB.
Flight 2846, carrying

Austin, Texas, just before
5 p.m. Saturday. The man

The Redmond, Wash.,

The device, detailed in a

women might want to eat
because of stress.
The Microsoft research
gadget monitors heart rate,

device sends the data to a
synced smartphone app
that attempts to stop users
from eating when they feel
stress.
"It's mostly women who

The bra works so well
because the monitors are
located near a person's
heart. But one problem with
the bra is its battery lasts

Christmas tree
catches fire at
elementary school
PORT ORANGE (AP) -A
Christmas caught fire in an
elementary school class-
room before classes started
on Tuesday.
An assistant principal
at Sweetwater Elementary
School discovered the fire
while making rounds be-
fore school started. Officials
believe the tree caught fire
shortly before the assistant
principal spotted it.
The Daytona Beach
News-Journal reports no
students were injured,
but eight classrooms were
displaced by the fire.
"Fortunately it had not
been burning for a long
time," said Volusia County
school district spokeswom-
an NancyWait.
The building houses
classrooms for students in
grades one through three.
Students were sent to the
media center for the day.
Wait says the fire didn't
cause much damage and it
did not damage the school's
electrical system.
The fire was contained
to one classroom, but there
was smoke damage in all
the classrooms in Building
3, Wait said.

Nelson questions
new ballot directive
TAMPA (AP) -Sen. Bill
Nelson was scheduled
to meet Tuesday with
Tampa Bay-area elections
supervisors to discuss a
new directive from the state
regarding absentee ballot
drop-off sites.
In a news release ahead
of his meeting with the
Hillsborough County
Supervisor of Elections,
the Democrat said he's
concerned that the new
directive is an attempt at
voter suppression.
"I just don't understand
why the state keeps trying
to make it harder for people
to vote," Nelson said in the
release. "This is seemingly
yet another attempt to do
just that."
On Nov. 25, Florida
Secretary of State Ken
Detzner -who is
Republican Gov. Rick Scott's
chief elections advisor -
ordered county elections
officials not to "solicit
return" of absentee ballots
at locations other than an
elections office or branch,
because it's not allowed by
law.

Woman at center
of infamous killing
to be set free
TAMPA (AP) -Valessa
Robinson was 15 when she
helped her friends kill her
mother in a Tampa suburb
in 1998 and 17 when she
was convicted of third-de-
gree murder.
Now 30, Robinson is
scheduled to be released
from prison in Florida on
Friday.
The Florida Department
of Corrections said Tuesday
that Robinson will be
released from Homestead
Correctional Institution in
Miami-Dade County.
Vicki Robinson was
choked, injected with
bleach and stabbed to
death in the family's upscale
home.Valessa Robinson,
her then-boyfriend Adam
Davis, and a third teen, Jon
Whispel, had taken LSD
the night of the murder,
then stole her car and
credit cards and set off on a
cross-country escape.
Robinson had been plan-
ning to sendValessa, then
15, to a Christian boarding
school for troubled girls to


separate her from Davis,
then a 19-year-old with a
criminal record.

Nativity scene on
display at Capitol
TALLAHASSEE (AP) -A
nativity scene depicting
the birth of Jesus is on dis-
play at the Capitol through
the holiday season.


A private group called
the Florida Nativity Scene
Committee installed the
display Tuesday. It is doing
so with the help of the
Chicago-based, conserva-
tive law firm Thomas More
Society.
The event featured
prayers and a children's
choir singing Christmas
carols. Organizer Pam Olsen
said it was a celebration of
Christ.
Another group, Reclaim
Christ for Christmas, will
add to the display with de-
pictions of the Three Wise
Men said to have delivered
gifts to the baby Jesus.
The American Civil
Liberties Union of Florida
executive director Howard
Simon said because the
manger scene is paid
for privately, the state is
opening itself to allowing
anyone to use the Capitol
to express messages.


Outback co-founder

Monday by hospital
officials.
The money will support

MIAMI (AP) -Florida
teens scored lower than
their international peers
in math and science and
about the same in reading,
results from a global test
released Tuesday show.
Overall, the 2012
Program for International
Student Assessment shows
U.S. students continuing to
stagnate in math, reading
and science while students
in places like Shanghai,
Hong Kong and Singapore
top the rankings in every
subject.
The average U.S. 15-year-
old student scored lower
than the international
average and about average
in science and reading.
Florida was one of three
states to get state-specific
results. The other two
states were Massachusetts
and Connecticut.
Students in Florida
scored an average of 467
on a 1,000-point scale
in math, lower than the
international average of 494
and U.S. average of 481.
Both Massachusetts and
Connecticut scored higher,
with averages of 514 and
506, respectively.
In science, Florida stu-
dents scored an average
of 485 points, lower than
the international average
of 501 but about the
same as other students
in the U.S. Again, both
Massachusetts and
Connecticut saw higher
averages of 527 and 521.
Reading scores for
Florida students were
about the same as both
the international and U.S.
averages.

Public Schools superinten-
dent DougWhittaker, who
had not seen the Program
for International Student
Assessment data as of
Tuesday, couldn't comment
on the scores, but said
that with other national
and international tests,
Florida scores have shown
improvement.
"One of the things that
has happened in recent
years is while Florida...
scores below the national
and international (aver-
ages), it has gained in its
relative position over other
states," Whittaker said.
Whittaker also said
because Florida students
are tested frequently they
might not be interested in
a test if its results will not
affect them. With interna-
tional assessments like the
PISA, Whittaker pointed
out, schools don't even see
their students' scores.
Charlotte County School
Board Chairman Ian
Vincent was doubtful of
Organization for Economic
Co-operation and
Development Secretary
General Angel Gurria's


opinion that Common
Core State Standards,
which aim to bring edu-
cational goals across the
U.S. into alignment, would
improve PISA scores and
the U.S. economy.
Vincent said the stan-
dards probably will be
helpful, but not to the
extent that Gurria expects.
"I'm not one of the
people who's anti-Com-
mon Core, but each state
in the country has had
its own standards, and
most of them are very
similar.... I don't believe
(Common Core is) the
panacea that's going to
fix America," he said.
The PISA exam was


administered to teens in 65
educational systems and is
considered one of the top
barometers in comparing
student performance
across countries. It is
designed to assess how
students use what they've
learned inside and outside
school to solve problems.
U.S. performance has
not changed significantly
since testing began in 2000,
while other nations have
continued to improve and
in some cases surpass the
U.S. The U.S. failed to reach
the top 20 in math, science
or reading.

The Sun /Wednesday, December 4,2013


NEWYORK (AP) -
After eight weeks of gains,
maybe the stock market
pullback long anticipated
by investors has arrived.
Stocks fell Tuesday,
dragged lower by the
Detroit automakers and
consumer-focused com-
panies such as GameStop
and Amazon.com. The
market could be headed
for its first weekly decline
since early October, put-
ting at risk a remarkable
rally that has sent indexes
to record highs.
The declines do not
come as a surprise to
large investors, many
of whom have been


predicting a pullback.
The S&P 500 has surged
26 percent this year, on
track for its best year
since the dot-comn bull
market of the late 1990s.
Stocks cannot go
straight up all the time.
For stocks to pause,
decline or even enter a
"correction," aWall Street
term for when an index
falls 10 percent or more,
would all be considered
normal after eight straight
weeks of gains.
"The markets may
have stalled out here,
but that must be taken
in the context of what
has been a great year,"


said Alec Young, global
equity strategist with S&P
Capital IQ.
The Dow Jones indus-
trial average lost 94.15
points, or 0.6 percent, to
15,914.62. The Standard &
Poor's 500 index fell 5.75
points, or 0.3 percent, to
1,795.15 and the Nasdaq
composite fell 8.06
points, or 0.2 percent, to
4,037.20.
Companies that
depend heavily on
consumer spending had
some of the biggest loss-
es. GameStop, the video
game retailer, sank $1.02,
or 2 percent, to $45.95,
one of the worst declines


in the S&P 500 index.
Amazon.com fell $7.64, or
2 percent, to $384.66.
Automakers fell.
General Motors lost
97 cents, or 3 percent,
to $38.14 and Ford fell
50 cents, or 3 percent, to
$16.56, despite what auto
industry analysts consid-
ered mostly positive sales
reports for November.
The sell-off auto stocks
came as a surprise to in-
dustry analysts. Chrysler
said sales rose 16 percent
in November compared
with a year ago, while GM
and Ford's sales increased
14 percent and 7 percent,
respectively.

that requires a wireless

be hard-wired. Many of
us already use our own
wireless router or one

The Smart TVs general-
ly come with hard-coded
features such as Netflix,
Pandora, Facebook and
many other commonly
used content providers.
This is in addition to the
ability to receive televi-
sion signal via a TV pro-
vider such as Comcast,
Dish, or Centurylink's
Prism.
All this comes at a
price, as a common
theme heard recently
from my clients is the
outrageous increases in
their cable or phone bills.
Most see no alternative.


Maybe our binary
buddy can provide some
possibilities.
Look at the TV bill.
Most of us bundle it with
our phone and Internet.
How much of the bill is
just the Internet portion?
In my case, the Comcast
starter bundle of TV and
Internet is over $100 a
month. If I subscribed to
only the Internet service,
it appears that it would
be around $60 a month.
But then I wouldn't have
any TV right? (Martha,
I bet that's a trick
question.)
Several alternate meth-
ods come into play. Since
our Smart TV is Internet
ready, subscription
movie services such as
Netflix, Hulu, and more
are available. Pandora


loneu ietworK I v. For
those in condos or
apartments, this may or
may not be a possibility.
But consider OTA (Over
the Air) or an antenna. I
watched a Thanksgiving
Day football game OTA.
The stations broadcast-
ing OTA went digital
about 2008, so any newer
TV will accept an OTA
channel.
The OTA TV I watched
was in Port Charlotte
and pulled in about 18
channels very clearly
with a $92 antenna.
To research OTA for a
specific location and
application, surf over
to antennaweb.org.
Plug in a zip code and it
displays the number of
channels, where they are
and the type of antenna
needed. We found the

My house hasn't had a

The baby




timeline


ear Dave: I'm in
the military, and
my wife and I have
$13,000 in the bank along
with $35,000 in a Roth IRA.
We also have no debt, and
we put $3,500 into our sav-
ings account each month.
Our new baby is due to
arrive in January, so do you
think this would be a good
time to buy our first home?
-Tom
DearTomn Based on
the market alone, it's a
great time to buy a house.
Interest rates are fantastic,
and prices are recovering
but still buyer-friendly
However, considering your
wife's delivery date and the
fact that it takes a while
to find and complete the
process of buying a home,
I think I'd wait on this.
Moving is stressful enough
under normal circumstanc-
es, but combining that with
a pregnancy could shoot
your wife's stress levels into
the stratosphere. I really
don't think you want to do
that to her. And speaking
as an old married guy, it's
something you don't want
to experience, either.
Another thing to consider
is if there's a good chance
you'll be reassigned in the
next four or five years. We
work with the military a
lot, and that means we see
people who buy, and get
stuck with, homes all over
the country. These places
usually become rental
homes because they don't
sell quickly. And this is a
situation you want to avoid
because being a long-dis-
tance landlord is a real pain.
If everything falls into
place, you could easily
have enough set aside for
a big down payment a
few months after the baby
arrives. Take a little more
time, and see how things
feel career- and family-wise
in a few months. That's my


Nave
1Ran i.ey


advice. Dave


Dear Dave: Is it better to
keep your emergency fund
in a certificate of deposit or
a money market account?
-Tiffany
Dear Tiffany: Right now,
a short-term certificate of
deposit (CD) pays about
the same as a money mar-
ket account. The problem
is you're only going to
make about 1 percent with
either one. The good thing
about a money market,
though, is that there are
no early withdrawal fees
attached.
In my mind, an emer-
gency fund isn't there for
the purpose of making
money. It needs to just sit
safe and sound until it's
needed. It should also be in
a program where it's easily
accessible and there are
no stupid fees or penalties
for simply using your own
money.
So, yeah, savings interest
rates right now are aggra-
vating. But you don't have
a 3- or 4-percent home
mortgage world without a
1 percent CD world. They
kind of go together. Just
remember that interest
rates aren't the end game
when it comes to your
emergency fund. You
want three to six months
of expenses just sitting
there, waiting for life to
happen. Trust me, it will!

instant communication
via email and smart-
phones allowed bosses to
place greater and greater
demands on white-collar
workers, some compa-
nies are beginning to set
limits, recognizing that
successful employees
must be able to escape
from work.
"Industry is now
responding," said Cary
Cooper, a professor of or-
ganizational psychology
and health at Lancaster
University, who says
the imperative to be
constantly reachable
by iPhone or tablet is
taking a toll on the work
delivered at the office.
"Employees are turning
up, but they're not
delivering anything."
After seeing colleagues
lose their jobs during the
Great Recession, workers
are more inclined to
come in to work, even
when sick, surveys show.
After hours, physical
presence is replaced
by the next best thing
- a virtual one. Many
employees fear switching


off, instead deciding to
work on vacation, during
dinner and in bed with
the help of smartphones,
laptops and tablet
computers.
People also have more
data than ever to process
- whether they ask for
it or not. Information
overload cost American
businesses just under
$1 trillion in employee
time lost to needless
emails and other distrac-
tions in 2010, according
to Jonathan Spira, chief
analyst of the New York
research firm, Basex.
The cost of replacing
employees who leave
in search of better work
conditions is also a
concern. A study from
the Center for American
Progress put the cost of
turnover at just over a
fifth of the employee's
salary for people making
up to $75,000 a year.
That goes up exponen-
tially for top managers,
with turnover costs as
high as 213 percent of
salary for very highly
paid positions.

Rays get catcher, reliever


Three-team deal


sends PCHS
Holmberg to


grad
Reds


By FRED GOODALL
ASSOCIATED PRESS
ST. PETERSBURG -The Tampa
Bay Rays acquired catcher Ryan
Hanigan from the Cincinnati Reds
and reliever Heath Bell from the
Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-
team trade on Tuesday.
The deal was announced after


Hanigan agreed to a $10.75 mil-
lion, three-year contract that runs
through 2016 an includes a club
option for 2017.
Tampa Bay sent minor league
pitcher Justin Choate and a player
to be named to the Diamondbacks.
Arizona dealt left-hander David
Holmberg of Port Charlotte to
Cincinnati.
The 33-year-old Hanigan is
expected to become Tampa Bay's
primary catcher. The trade was
completed a day after free agent
catcher Jose Molina was re-signed


to a $4.5 million, two-year contract.
Bell will be a candidate to become
the Rays' closer.
Hanigan is a .262 career hitter
who spent the past seven seasons
with the Reds. He batted .198 with
two homers and 21 RBIs in 75
games in 2013, when he spent two
stints on the disabled list one
because of a strained left oblique
muscle and the other a sprained left
wrist.
Bell, 36, has 168 career saves
over 10 major league seasons with

SUN CORRESPONDENT
PORT CHARLOTTE-
Nicksen Blanc kept Port
Charlotte High School in
the game. Harrison Rains
turned it into a rout.
Blanc scored a


game-high 20 points and
Rains' fourth-quarter spree
blew the game open as the
Pirates overcame a sluggish
first half to rout Venice
67-38 at Pirate Cove in the
District 6A-11 opener for
both teams.


Reynolds sinks
consecutive 3s
to seal victory
By ROB SHORE
SPORTS WRrrITER
PUNTAGORDA -The
traveling Fort Myers fans
tried to get under the
skin of Dwayne Reynolds
with the sing-song chant,
"Dwight is better."
The chant bothered the
Charlotte High School
senior so much he buried
back-to-back 3-pointers
in the fourth quarter, and
subsequently buried the
Green Wave with a 58-52
victory in the District 7A- 11
openers for both teams.
The 3-pointers were a
highlight in a 12-2 run that
stretched Charlotte's lead to
13 with 5:32 left.
"I just wanted to see
where my shot was at, that's
all," Dwayne said with a
grin.
Dwayne's twin brother
Dwight had a hand in
the spurt as well, with a
pair of buckets to open
the scoring in the fourth
quarter. Dwight finished
with a game-high 22 points
with seven rebounds. Both
of Charlotte's senior twins
came off the bench on
Tuesday night.
Dwayne heard the chants,
but it wasn't anything he
couldn't laugh about later.
"That doesn't bother me,"
Dwayne said. "I know I'm a
great athlete, so that doesn't
bother me. We aren't even
the same thing we play
different positions."
Up to the decisive run,
the Tarpons (3-2, 1-0) had
the look of grinders and
never led by more than five
points in the first half.
"We knew that Fort Myers
was going to be that tough
of a game," Charlotte coach
Tom Massolio said. "They're
a good team. They're a

and contributed solid min-

Pistons end Heat




streak at 10 wins


By TIM REYNOLDS
ASSOCIATED PRESS
MIAMI Kyle Singler
scored 18 points to lead
seven Detroit players in
double figures, Andre
Drummond had 18
rebounds and the Pistons
beat the Miami Heat 107-
97 on Tuesday night to
snap the NBA champions'
10-game winning streak.
Greg Monroe and
Rodney Stuckey each
scored 16 for Detroit,
which got 15 apiece from
Josh Smith and Brandon
Jennings. The Pistons led
by 18 before Miami got
within three points in the
fourth, but never trailed
in the game's final 47
minutes.
Jennings sealed it with
just over two minutes
left, stealing the ball from
LeBron James and setting
up Monroe for an easy
score.
James and Michael
Beasley each scored 23
for Miami. The Heat
played without guard
Dwyane Wade, the All-
Star sitting for the fourth
time this season to rest a
sore knee.
Miami shot a sea-
son-low 44 percent.
The Heat were down 11
when James re-entered
the game with 7:58 left.
Within 10 seconds, the
lead was down to seven.
Beasley scored while
getting fouled, missed
the free throw, and had
the rebound tipped in
by Chris Andersen to get
Miami to 89-82.
A dunk by James
got Miami to 91-88

SOCCER

U.S. placed in Pot 3 for
World Cup draw: The United
States could end up in a group
with powers Brazil, Italy and the
Netherlands after FIFA tinkered with
its format for Friday's World Cup draw,
when teams will find out their groups
for the 2014 tournament. The U.S.
is part of Pot 3, which includes other
teams from the Asian and CONCACAF
regions. FIFA traditionally tries to create


pots based on geography, so no more
than one team from a region may be in
the same group, except Europe, which
may have two ...
Security is also on the agenda as
football's world governing body FIFA
meets in the run-up to Friday's draw.
Jerome Valcke, the top FIFA official
in charge of the World Cup, said the
football tournament would have
"the highest level of security you can
imagine"to contain any violence....
At least three World Cup stadiums
will not be finished by the end of
December as FIFA requested. FIFA said
the stadiums in Sao Paulo, Curitiba
and Cuiaba would miss the deadline
because of construction delays but
would be ready by the end of February.
It is unclear when the stadium in Sao
Paulo will be done. Two workers died
there last week in a construction acci-
dent, which also damaged the stadium.
FIFA said it was confident it would be
ready for the opening match....
Brazil has decided against opening
more routes for foreign air carriers for
the World Cup, certain it can handle
the crunch. In an interview with
The Associated Press, Civil Aviation
Secretary Wellington Moreira Franco
said the idea of expanding routes for
foreign carriers "was never considered."
Moreira Franco said Brazilian carriers
can handle the load with 600,000
foreigners and more than 3 million
expected to head to matches ...
U.S. team forward Jozy Altidore has
earned his first national team player
of the year award. The 24-year-old
received 233 points and 52 first-place
votes in media balloting. Michael
Bradley was second, followed by
Landon Donovan. Altidore, the U.S.
Soccer Federation's male athlete of
the year, scored eight goals in 14
international appearances this year. He
is the first U.S. player to score in five
straight games.

Reports: Yanks




sign Ellsbury


FROM WIRE REPORTS
NEWYORK -Free-
agent outfielder Jacoby
Ellsbury reached agree-
ment on a seven-year
contract with the New
YorkYankees pending a
physical exam.
Multiple media outlets
reported the deal Tuesday
night citing unnamed
sources.
CBSSports.com report-
ed that Ellsbury's deal is
$153 million for seven
years, exceeding Carl
Crawford's seven-year,
$142 million contract with
the Boston Red Sox in
December 2010.
The Yankees also com-
pleted a five-year $85-mil-
lion contract with All-Star
catcher Brian McCann in
what the team said is a
"significant improvement
to a key position."
McCann, who turns 30
in February, hit .256 with
20 homers and 57 RBIs in
102 games for the Atlanta
Braves this year, when he
missed the first month fol-
lowing offseason surgery
on his right shoulder.

AL West champion A's

In one whirlwind stretch of less than
24 hours, Billy Beane pulled off a trio

Cincinnati Reds catcher Ryan Hanigan catches a ball during
spring training earlier this year in Goodyear, Ariz. He agreed to
a $10.75 million, three-year contract with the Tampa Bay Rays
that runs through 2016 and includes a club option for 2017.

the New York Mets, San
Diego, Miami and the
Diamondbacks. He led
the majors with 132 saves
for the Padres from 2009-
11 and his 166 saves over
the past five seasons are
third in the majors after
Jonathan Papelbon's 173
and Mariano Rivera's 170.
Bell was 5-2 with a
4.11 ERA with 15 saves
in 69 appearances for
the Diamondbacks last
season.
"It's a fresh start,"
said Bell, who's looking
forward to heading to
the American League.
"I do feel I can help this
ballclub."
The Reds traded a
catcher they no longer
needed for a left-hand-
ed pitching prospect
in Holmberg, a Port
Charlotte High School
graduate projected by
Baseball America as a No.
3 or No. 4 starter.
He was drafted by the
Chicago White Sox in the
second round in 2009
and traded to Arizona
with right-hander Daniel
Hudson for Edwin
Jackson on July30, 2010.
He spent most of the last
two seasons at Double-A
Mobile, where he had
a2.75 ERAin 2013. He
made his major league
debut on Aug. 27 against


the San Diego Padres.
Devin Mesoraco,
Cincinnati's first-round
draft pick in 2007,
emerged as an everyday
catcher last season
when Hanigan was hurt.
Mesoraco played in a
career-high 103 games,
batting .238 with nine
homers and 42 RBIs.
Hanigan was on the
disabled list twice and
batted only .198 with two
homers and 21 RBIs in 75
games.
Hanigan caught both of
Homer Bailey's no-hitters
in the last two seasons.
The 33-year-old became
expendable when the
Reds decided after the
season that they would
make Mesoraco the start-
er. They signed catcher
Brayan Pena to a two-
year deal for $2,275,000,
giving them a backup for
Mesoraco.
"Devin Mesoraco will
have the opportunity
to become a front-line
catcher for us," general
manager Walt Jocketty
said. "Holmberg provides
us with the quality
pitching depth that every
team needs."
The 22-year-old lefty
was a Southern League
All-Star last season. He
went 5-8 with a 2.75 ERA
for Double-A Mobile,
striking out 116 in 157 1-3
innings. He made his big
league debut for Arizona
against San Diego on Aug.
27.

UCF one win from title


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
ORLANDO UCF has
two chances this week to
punch it's ticket to a BCS
bowl.
Either a Cincinnati loss
to No. 19 Louisville on
Thursday night or vic-
tory by the 15th-ranked
Knights in their finale
against SMU on Saturday
will give UCF (10-1, 7-0)
the American Athletic
Conference title and the
BCS berth that goes with
it.
Coach George O'Leary
prefers his team gets
there on its own.
"Whatever happens
on Thursday night, I
don't want to back into
anything," O'Leary said.
"I think you want to win it
if you have a chance to be
undefeated in conference
play. How many teams in
the country can do that
this year? ... Our concern
is playing SMU and win-
ning the game. That's why
we're playing. Whatever
happens could be great
for us or it doesn't change
anything."
For a team that entered
the season in the shadow
of American-favorite
Louisville, the Knights
have fared well in the


national spotlight late
in the season while
surviving in a series
close games. The Knights
have posted six wins by
seven or fewer points this
season, including five in
conference play.

Mariota returning
to Oregon next year:
Quarterback Marcus Mariota has
announced that he will return to
Oregon for his junior season. There
had been speculation that Mariota
might declare himself eligible for
the NFL. Following Oregon's 36-35
victory over Oregon State in the Civil
War last Friday, he said he hadn't yet
made a decision. But on Tuesday the
school announced on its website that
Mariota would stay, along with junior
center Hronis Grasu.

More awards for
Winston, Seminoles: Jameis
Winston was named ACC rookie of

PITTSBURGH -Mike

he was out of posi-

Baltimore's Jacoby Jones
race through the Steelers
crumbling kickoff return
unit in the third quarter
of last week's game on
Thanksgiving night.
Tomlin, standing on the

field from the sideline,
didn't move out of the
way until he saw his

black baseball cap flash
across the screen did he
realize it might be a good
time to move.
It's an ill-timed two-
step the 41-year-old
Tomlin allows was a lot
of things, namely "em-
barrassing, inexcusable,
illegal and a blunder." The
one thing it wasn't, he
insists, was intentional.

* NHL:


Malone


out 3-4


weeks

By DAMIAN CRISTODERO
TAMPA BAY TIMES
COLUMBUS, Ohio
Tampa Bay left wing Ryan
Malone, hit with a puck
Nov. 22 at Anaheim, is
expected out three to four
weeks with a non-dis-
placed ankle fracture,
Lightning general man-
ager Steve Yzerman said
Tuesday.
That was just the
first bit of bad news for
Tampa Bay, which also
lost defenseman Eric
Brewer to a lower-body
injury sustained during
the morning skate. He is
listed as day to day.
The deepening of
Tampa Bay's already long
injury list will not change
Yzerman's approach to
the roster, preferring call-
ups from AHL Syracuse
to manage the injuries
short-term while looking
at trades for players who
fit the bigger picture.
"If it's more for some-
one who is going to
make us better through
the season I'm all for it,"
Yzerman said of a trade.
"But I don't want to give
up an asset today for
somebody who isn't going
to have a roster spot
when we get healthy."
Tampa Bay has seven
players out with injuries:
Brewer and defensemen
Radko Gudas (upper
body) and Brian Lee
(knee), and forwards
Malone, Steven Stamkos
(broken right leg), Tom
Pyatt (broken collarbone)
and Pierre-Cedric Labrie
(left arm/elbow).
The losses have been
most acute at forward
where the Lightning has
rookies and Syracuse
call-ups J.T. Brown and
Nikita Kucherov on the
second line with C Alex
Killorn, who has played
all of 65 NHL games. It
also recalled RW Dana
Tyrell, and recalled and
sent back to the Crunch
RW Brett Connolly.
"We've done reasonably
well with the guys that
have been recalled,"
Yzerman said. "Again, if
we get thinner, (a trade) is
something we might have
to look at a little closer."

More walking wounded:
Gudas and Labrie have a chance to
be back by the end of the week....
Yzerman said there is no concern
about Pyatt, who already has been
out eight weeks, but might be out
two to four more after a CT scan
showed his broken collarbone not yet
healed. "I' don't think it's uncommon
for this injury to be eight to 12 weeks,
potentially,"Yzerman said.

Experience Italy at Cafe Italiano


E;NIC.', December4 10, 2013


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Vince Formosa, owner of Cafe Italiano in
Arcadia, never has to look for a place that
serves food just like his mother used to
make, as many of the rest of us have to do.
That's because he is the one making the
food himself.
Using techniques and combinations of
ingredients that have been handed down
from his Italian immigrant grandmother
to his Chicago-raised mother to him,
Formosa has cultivated a menu and a style
of cooking that would make any mama
proud.
"Many of my dishes have evolved from


family recipes, like my homemade Italian
sausage and my meatballs;' he said. "I try
to maintain the same standards that my
parents and grandparents did. So I use only
the freshest and finest ingredients, and I
don't allow processed food in my restau-
rant or my home'."
Inside his 65-seat restaurant, Formosa
has re-created not only the food, but also
the atmosphere of an Italian cafe. There
are four separate dining rooms, making the
dining experience even more intimate, and
the walls are hand-painted in Venetian and
Italian landscapes. Outside are 25 more
seats in the arcade.
Each dish Formosa serves is freshly
prepared and made to order, right down


I ea

No


to the homemade marinara and Alfredo
sauces, so if it takes a little more time to do
that, it is worth it. After all, when Euro-
peans dine out, they keep a table for the
evening, taking time to fully enjoy each
course.
"I like to classify our restaurant as 'fine
dining in a casual setting,'" Formosa said.
"Our cuisine is Italian continental, with
some American cuisine involved, too."
Though there are some very popular
entree favorites on the Cafe Italiano menu,
like fettucini Alfredo, grouper piccata,
scampi Napolitano and Alfredo Florentine,
the restaurant is probably best known
for its brick oven pizza. Formosa says that
there is even one couple who frequently
drive over from the east coast for business,
and insist on having one of the pies each
time before they head back home.
"The pizza is a thin crust, 'Chicago tavern'
style," he said. "It's very similar to a pizza
you would find in New York or Connecticut.
We make all our own dough and all of our
sauces are my recipes and homemade."
And don't plan on leaving Cafe Italiano
before you have one of Formosa's home-


made desserts. His Italian cheesecake and
award-winning flourless dark truffle cake
will provide the perfect ending to your
authentic Italian dining experience.
Formosa says that he has enjoyed
bringing the recipes of his family and the
culture of the Italian people to his Arcadia
restaurant, having previously been in the
hospitality business for decades in Lee
County.
"People here have been so supportive (of
the restaurant)," he said. "It's a small town,
which is very different from where I was.
We're just very thankful to be here."
Mama would approve.
Cafe Italiano is at 117 West Oak Street
in Arcadia, and is open Tuesday through
Saturday for lunch and dinner. The hours
are 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., lunch and
4:30 to 8 p.m., dinner. Rooms in the restau-
rant can be rented for private parties and
Formosa also does outside catering, if you
would like someone else to cook for your
holiday gathering.
For more information, visit the Facebook
page or the website at www.cafeital-
ianopizzeria.com, or call 863-491-0044.

SUN CORRESPONDENT


When Joe Szych Sr. moved to Southwest
Florida, he couldn't find authentic Italian
pizza like he enjoyed at"Marco's Pizza"
while living in Toledo, Ohio. His son, Joe
Jr.,was employed at Marco's in Toledo for
14years. So, father asked son to move
to Florida and become his partner in
purchasing a "Marco's Pizza"franchise in
North Port. That was five years ago, and
business has been so successful that the
Szych's decided to open a second location at
19451 Cochran Blvd., in Port Charlotte, that
recently had its grand opening.
"I grew up on Marco's pizza'"Joe Jr. said.
"I'm pleased to be co-owner of a business
that I love. And I like Florida, but I miss the
seasons. I want to take my three young
children back there someday so that they
can enjoy some fun in the snow as I did as


a kid."
Marco's Pizza claims that their pizza
is so good because dough is made the
traditional way, fresh from scratch every
day. The sauce is made from vine-ripened
tomatoes just hours after picking, and a
signature blend of herbs and spices added;
a blend of three fresh cheeses, never
frozen, is at the heart of authentic, fresh
taste; hearty robust servings of real meat,
quality and abundance is the authentic
Italian way.
Build-your-own pizzas are available in
original or crispy thin crust styles. There are
20 toppings available, and garlic butter,
parmesan cheese and Roma seasoning are
free crust toppers.
Specialty pizzas are also available such
as Hawaiian chicken, meat supreme and
white cheezy. The latter has four types
of cheese including feta, bacon, onions,
sliced tomatoes and garlic butter sauce. It


was an award-winning pizza in California,
and excellent on a crispy thin crust. Try it;
you'll love it. For pepperoni lovers, try the
pepperoni magnifico which includes two
kinds of pepperoni.
Marco's offers a variety of salads, and
6-inch or 12-inch subs on rustic wheat or
Italian white rolls. According to Joe Jr., the
most popular is the Italiano that includes
ham, salami, provolone cheese, banana
peppers, tomatoes, red onions and sub
dressing.
For some extra fun, try the popular
cheezy bread (fresh-baked bread strips
with three types of cheese and garlic
butter, topped with parmesan and Roma
seasoning, served with pizza sauce and
ranch sauce for dipping), or the meatball
bake (Marco's meatballs and sausages
baked with signature sauce and cheese
blend).
Also on the menu are chicken wings,


chicken dippers and cinna squares (a
buttery fresh baked pastry, topped with
cinnamon, sugar and a side of vanilla
icing).
Business hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Monday to Thursday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
on Sunday.
Marco's will delight groups, large or
small, for office meetings, luncheons, or
special events. If you need a fundraiser,
Marco's can help create a successful event.
Dine in or call 941-629-2929 for takeout,
or you may order online atwww.marcos.
com. Delivery is available within a five-mile
radius. Charge is $2.50 foran $8 minimum
order.
Go to the website to join Marco's email
club and receive a welcome reward
delivered straight to your inbox, a gift for
your birthday, and the freshest information
about Marco's specials.

Christmas in



Rotonda parade


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Englewood area residents and families
from surrounding communities are looking
forward to attending a seventh annual
Rotonda West Christmas Parade this
Saturday.
Over 60 floats and marching units are
expected to participate, and thousands
of spectators will be lining the parade
route. The theme this year is "Christmas in
Rotonda" and the Rotonda West Associ-
ation's Community Relations committee
invites parade attendees to help by
donating nonperishable food items. Golf
carts donated by Thoroughbred Golf Carts
will travel the parade route to pick up
donations. Last year attendees donated
nearly 2,000 pounds of canned goods, toys
and more than $600 in cash and checks. It's
important to note that food and funds go
directly to beneficiary Englewood Helping
Hand. Giffels and Webster, an engineering
firm headed by company chairman
Jonathon Cole, has loaned the parade
committee tractors and a flatbed trailer
for transporting donations to the Helping
Hand organization.
Expected to participate in the parade
are faith-based groups and churches, the
American Legion, the Cultural Guild of the
Greater Cape Haze Peninsula, antique car
enthusiasts, the Rotonda West Women's
Club, The Lemon Bay High School Marching
Band, equestrian riders, civic and service
organizations, small businesses, nonprofit
community organizations, musical groups
and members of the local VFW post. The
honor guard from the Rotonda VFW Post
10476 and the High School's ROTC unit will

lead the parade and carry the colors of
the four military branches. As always, Mr.
and Mrs. Claus will arrive by sleigh at the
end of the parade to officially usher in the
Christmas season.
"Our parade has a small town, down-
home spirit, and marchers and spectators
always have fun with it. Most parades
take place in downtown business districts
while ours proceeds along the community's
residential area;' said Earl Haas, parade
committee chairman:' Haas is assisted by
members Russ Kulp and Linda Bondeson
(committee co-chairs), Don Mahon, Sue
Killion, Ginni Mahon and Ruth Sargent.
Judges Ken and Tammy Birdsong
and Chris Phelps will keep score at the
mid-point of the parade. Birdsong, along
with Ken Kuenzie, will broadcast live on
WENG radio during the event. "Clowns
Like Us," the big winners last year, will be
on hand to defend their title on Saturday.
No entry fee is required, and late comers
are welcome to register and join the
parade. They may, however, have to
take up the rear, which isn't a problem,
according to Chairman Haas, "since that's
where Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive on the
scene."
At 2 p.m. on Dec. 7 the parade sets off
from Rotonda Boulevard North, proceeds
east on Rotonda North towards Rotonda
Circle and continues for about three miles
to the Oakland Hills Marina (across from
the Rotonda Hills Restaurant). Spectators
are encouraged to bring chairs and water in
order to be comfortable during the parade. A
rain date has been set of Dec. 8. Go to: www.

charge admission;' explained chairman and
community activist, Janet Landis, "but we do
request a one dollar donation with proceeds
benefiting Englewood community charities.
Streets will be blocked off to vehicle
traffic from Mango Street to Cedar Street to
allow for a pedestrian-only exhibition area."
Landis and her crew of volunteers are happy
that members of the junior varsity and
varsity Lemon Bay High School girls soccer
teams and soccer coach, Katie Cooke, will be
greeting people and providing them with
smiley face stickers at the gate. Members
who volunteer earn credit for their commu-
nity service.
On Saturday and Sunday, food vendor
Gypsy Wagon will be offering hot dogs,
coffee, scones and cinnamon buns, and on
Sunday, vendor Jonesz BBQ will be serving
chicken, ribs, and pulled pork to festival
attendees.
Olde Englewood Village on West Dearborn

long, and this year's Winter Fine Arts Festival
promises to be the best ever. Over 100 artists
will participate, displaying and selling
original works in many different mediums.
Exhibitors compete for cash prizes and
are awarded ribbons in seven categories:
painting, sculpture, jewelry, photography,
glass, mixed media and pottery/ceramics.

collection of affordable pottery gift items,
and Jim Roberts will be offering his Reel
Dreams Fish Prints for sale. Roberts brings
the natural beauty of the sea to life with

technique created by Japanese anglers as far
back as 1862. He'll also be selling note cards
with turtle, tropical fish, and deep-water
fish designs. St. Louis native Alan Traynor,
a former stage manager at Walt Disney
Company, paints wooden eggs, earning
him the title of "The Egg Man." He'll be

all colors and designs. To view a sample of
his work go to eggmanart.com.
The Winter Fine Arts Festival will be held
on Dearborn Street from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on

The Punta Gorda

Garden Club's 20th

annual Holly Days

Home Tour


By GORDON BOWER
S II I'' 1' 1 I


If it's the first weekend of December, the
traditional kickoff for the holidays around
here, you can count on the ladies of the
Punta Gorda Garden Club to stage an event
that draws people from all over Southwest
Florida. Their popular Holly Days Home Tour
has been a signature event on a crowded
holiday calendar for 20 years and provides
the club with money it puts to very good
use in the community.
This year's 20th tour, titled A Tropical
Holiday to Remember, is Dec. 6 and 7, and
members are hoping to match or exceed
last year's record numbers. The reason
for the popularity is simple. Tourgoers
get a rare opportunity to see the inside
of a Historic District home and a look at
how local plant materials, such as palm
tree parts can be used to decorate for the
holidays.
"Last year was a huge year for us; we
had way over a thousand people," tour vice
chair Carol Moore said. "We had to reprint


the tickets twice. We took in $1,900. It was
amazing."
The growing attendance at the home
tour has prompted a change in hours this
year. Moore said, "We decided to change
the hours to start an hour earlier
(11 a.m.). Why not; the houses are ready."
The price of the tour is a worthwhile
investment for anyone looking for holiday
decorating ideas, especially ladies who
may want to try something different.
The centerpiece of each home is always
a beautifully decorated Christmas tree,
and rooms and porches are filled with
decorating touches you've never thought
of made from materials you might find in
your own home landscape. Many attendees
bring a camera and a notebook to capture
their favorite ideas.
The four homes on this year's tour
are a good mix. They range from a true
1910-vintage Florida Cracker cottage to a
new Cracker-style home built in 2012 to
exacting historical standards.
One home was built during the boom
construction of the 1920s on a lot town
founder Isaac Trabue sold to a friend. The
home on McGregor Street received no
damage from Hurricane Charley, an event
called a miracle when President Bush
visited Punta Gorda after the storm.
The ticket you purchase is actually a
pamphlet that will fill you in on the houses'
histories and the current owners. Buy one
and enjoy history and beautiful decorations
while contributing to a good cause, the
perfect way to kick off the holiday season.
The club traditionally uses the proceeds to
fund four college scholarships to local high
school students.

Tony Allen, Florida Hot Rods and Hogs
Founder, says shows like this one are a
respectful nod to the past.
"The enthu-
siasm shown by


young and old
when they see
these cars and
bikes on display
is exciting," he
said. "The show
is my way of
bringing back a
little history and
nostalgia of the
classic cars built
with tradition
and the cycles
that bring art to
life on wheels"


This show consists of everything motor-
sport, and is sure to catch the eye of car enthu-
siasts and collectors alike. Patrons can relive
the glory days with Fords, Harley Davidson
Knuckleheads, Chevys, Corvettes, Indian
Motorcycles and much more.
This year's automotive celebrity lineup for
the event will include racecar driver Camee
Edelbrock, "My Classic Car" host Dennis Gage
and "Barrett-Jackson Classic Car" auctioneers
"Spanky"and Amy Assiter.
Camee Edelbrock is a third generation auto-
motive enthusiast and racecar driver. She is
the granddaughter of the famed Vic Edelbrock
Sr.,who raced across the dry lakes of southern
California in his 1932 Ford Roadster, setting a
speed record of 121 mph right before WWII.
Edelbrock started racing on water skis in
the sport of speed skiing where races typically
ranged in length from 50 to 75 miles in the
lakes and oceans of Southern California. From
speed skiing, Edelbrock's interests moved to
offshore boat racing and finally road racing.


car shows in the world.
"I have the ultimate job," Gage said. "I
get to travel the world, sample car culture
and visit with classic car enthusiasts. So I'm


looking forward to
getting down to
Southwest Florida
to see some cool
cars and bikes,
meet new people
and share stories
with them about
America's love
affair with the
automobile.'
Another pair of
car lovers joining
the show is Amy
and"Spanky"
Assiter. The


Assiters are celebrity stars from the "Barrett-
Jackson Classic Car Auction." "Spanky" has
been in the auctioning business since he was
a child, and for the last 16 years, has served
as the lead auctioneer at "Barrett-Jackson
Classic Car Auction;' where cars like a 1966
Shelby Cobra 427 "Super Snake"went for
$5.5 million. Amy Assiter has made a name
for herself in the business, too, by calling out
chants for "Barrett-Jackson" She has also
earned the titles of Oklahoma State Auction-
eers Association Rookie Champion and the
Oklahoma State Reserve Champion under her
auctioneer belt.
For a day full of fun, which will also include
live entertainment by bands like Big Engine,
Straight from the Tap, Kettle of Fish and The
DB9, head on over to the Florida Hot Rods
and Hogs Car and Bike Show. The Punta Gorda
Kiwanis Club will be accepting donations at
the event to help support their service to the
communities, like providing shelter for the
homeless, food for the hungry, mentoring for
the disadvantaged, and care for the sick.

SUN CORRESPONDENT
Program Coordinator Wendy Aldridge is
busy preparing for this Saturday's free holiday
arts and craft show at the Englewood sports
complex. "Lastyearwe set up 50 tables, and
over 60 craftspeople showed up. We can accom-
modate that and many more without any
problem;' explained Aldridge," and customers
really enjoy shopping in our comfortable,
air-conditioned 11,000 square foot gymna-
sium." Artists and craftspeople will be offering a
wide array of items that include woodcarvings,
wine bottle creations, hand designed greeting
cards, photographs, bike bells, pineapple/
sea grass baskets, decoupage paper jewelry,
and bamboo crafts. Families are encouraged
to bring their children along, too, as a kid's
craft zone will be set up in a side room where
parents and tiny tots may assemble simple,
holiday crafts. Materials will be supplied at no
charge, but there will be no actual instruction.
Miss Sharon's Dawg House, a concession trailer,
will be parked outside at the complex entrance
so hungry customers may enjoy hot dogs, chips,
cold drinks, coffee and doughnuts before or
after the show. With over 136 acres, and dozens
of outdoor amenities, The Englewood Sports
Complex is a beautiful scenic area to visit at
any time of the year, and parking is never a
problem.
Aldridge and her staff expect a "good
mix" of vendors this year. George Newman, a
skilled silversmith, will be selling glass jewelry
wrapped in sterling silver wire and necklace/
earring sets made from sharks' teeth and


trimmed with silver, a process he developed to
make his work unique.
Carolyn Troboski, a retired school admin-
istrator and her architect daughter, are a
mother-daughter team. Carolyn features
fiber/textile and fabric wall art and quilted
handbags, while her daughter creates jewelry
using recycled parts from DVR players, printer
rollers, and tomato cans. She offers 5 inch crab
and scorpion coffee table "critters" made from
wire.
Katrina Meyer, owner of Elegance in Wire
Jewelry, has won many awards for her classic
designs using 14k gold-filled wire and beads,
all done by hand using just a few simple hand
tools. HerArrow Bracelet was featured in an
international magazine.
Shirley Hornagold has reserved two tables for
this show. Her collection of soft velourfingertip
towels, double dish towels and hand towel sets
make beautiful and affordable gifts forany
occasion. Buyers can choose from 100 adorable
patterns and machine embroidered designs
that include reindeer with Santa and Mr. and
Mrs. Claus at the beach.
Nature and wildlife photographer, Lynn
Sarles, is offering a calendarand framed and
matted scenes of local wildlife including alliga-
tors, bald eagles and herons. The Englewood
Sports Complex is located at 1300 S. River Rd.,
in Englewood. The holiday arts and craft show
takes place from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday,
Dec. 7. For more information go to www.scgov.
net/ParksandRecreation or call Wendy Aldridge
directly at 941-861-1980. Future shows are
scheduled forJan. 25 and March 15. A Garage
Sale is being planned for Feb. 22.

'A Christmas Cactus'


where mystery


and romance


converge


By Chris Kourapis
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Those who love mystery, romance and a
huge dose of comedy will be thrilled with "A
Christmas Cactus" at the Lemon Bay Play-
house. It's a "Dickens" of a play, and no doubt
everyone will get the message that this
play is as off-beat as it gets.
For one thing, "A Christmas Cactus" by
Eliot Byerrum is really by Ellen Byerrum, an
attractive redhead, not unlike her main char-
acter, Cactus O'Riley. Why she chose to write
using a man's name remains a mystery, but
it really doesn't matter. The play, although
not well-known, will keep audiences on their
toes, as almost every line contains a double
entendre.
Bob LaSalle, who is both directing and
acting in "Christmas Cactus;' is up to the
challenge. "This is a first for me;' said LaSalle,
"and if I didn't have such a professional cast,
it would be impossible to both direct and act
at the same time. Playing the part of Ramon
Ramirez, an illegal immigrant, seemed
natural for me, as I often portray characters
with foreign accents' LaSalle acted as Victor
Velasco in "Barefoot in the Park" and as,
Ivan, in "Drinking Alone'." He's currently the
president of the Lemon Bay Playhouse.
Bill and Kim Fisackerly, husband and wife
in real life, are perfectly cast. Bill, as Stuart
Windsor, is a deputy district attorney and
Cactus' love interest from years ago. Bill
acted as Sky Masterson in "Guys and Dolls"
in north Florida and as The Gentleman Caller


in "The Glass Menagerie" at Lemon Bay
Playhouse. He's also a full-time pastor at Gulf
Cove Methodist Church in Port Charlotte. Kim,
with her hair dyed bright red for this part,
portrays the very smart but not conceited
private investigator, Cactus O'Riley, who
wants to make the world a better place. Kim
works at Weight Watchers and is a Contem-
porary Worship Leader at Gulf Cove when not
acting at Lemon Bay Playhouse or with The
Charlotte Players. She loves sharing the stage
with Bill, and played Laura Wingfield in "The
Glass Menagerie'."
Lee Lawler, as Adelaide Booker, is the
protective mother of Fred, Cactus' assistant,
who believes she's attending a murder
mystery party. Lawler, who has acted since
college, loves performing at Lemon Bay Play-
house where she's appeared in many plays
including "Post Mortem;' "Enchanted April;'
"Night Watch" and "Angel Street'."
Rick Moore, who plays Fred, a wanna-be
detective, was very funny as Teddy in
"Arsenic and Old Lace" and as Eddie in "Born
Yesterday'." He's a retired paramedic who has
acted in many productions in Leesburg and
Clermont.
Nick Nichols was David 0. Selznick in "Don't
Cry For Me Margaret Mitchell;' and he's
portrayed a host of cop roles at the Venice
Theater and LBPH. He's fugitive Neville
Smedley in "Cactus'
Lemon Bay Playhouse is located at 96 W.
Dearborn St., Englewood. Call 941-475-6756
or go to www.lemonbayplayhouse.com.
Tickets cost $18.

celebrates silver anniversary


By KIM COOL
I i i i i I i'ii ,

Thousands are expected to gather
along the Intracoastal Waterway in Venice
Saturday evening for the 25th annual
Christmas Boat Parade.
Possibly the biggest annual event in the
city, the boat parade had been viewed by
as many as 60,000 in past years, chairman
John Osmulski said.
Chairs and blankets marking choice
viewing spots are already placed along the
Intracoastal from the Albee Road Bridge to
the parade's terminus or turnaround point,
the Venice Circus Bridge at the south end of
the island part of the city.
The highly decorated boats depart from
the Albee Road bridge at 6 p.m. Saturday
evening. They head south toward Snake
Island and the Venice Jetty area. From
there, the boats head into the inlet near

ROAD TRIPGO


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDrrITOR
Salvador Dali would appreciate his
museum in St. Petersburg, especially the
undulating ribbon of glass window that
seems inspired by Buckminster Fuller's
geodesic domes of the'60s.
Or perhaps it was inspired by some of
the undulating designs by Dali himself-
those slithering clock faces perhaps.
Located on the waterfront in down-
town St. Petersburg, the museum itself
is as much a work of art as any of its
contents. While Fuller's original domes
were comprised of hundreds of triangles
that were generally equal in size, the
Dali's three-dimensional ribbon of glass
is composed of 1,062 unequal triangular
glass panels. In preconstruction visits to
the museum, I learned from the architect,
Yann Weymouth of HOK architectural firm
that, with the exception of its mate, no
two sides of any one of the triangular
shapes is the equal of any other. Whether
viewed from inside or outside, the glass
portion of the museum is worth a visit on
its own. So is the spiral staircase that rises
toward the peak of the glass dome with no
visible lateral supports.
Outside the glass is a garden terrace.
Within is the museum shop and snack
bar. Above are offices, exhibit space
and a storage area designed to protect
the collection from even a category five


hurricane.
When the collection was housed in the
old Dali museum (also in St. Petersburg)
the larger works had to be physically
removed from the museum and trucked to
a safe site some distance away no easy
task. Now the large works are placed on
the elevator and taken up to a storm-safe
area that is flood proof, fireproof, wind-
proof and more.
Fortunately even in Florida, that does
not happen too often. On all other days,
visitors can see America's largest collection
of works by Salvador Dali. Beachwood,
Ohio residents Reynolds and Eleanor Morse
began collecting Dali in the early'40s after
seeing the artist's work displayed at the
Cleveland Museum of Art. The collection
began with a wedding present to them-
selves. Eventually they became friends of
the artist and founded a private museum
of his work in Beachwood, Ohio where they
lived before giving the collection to St.
Petersburg. Today the collection comprises
about 100 oil paintings, more than
100 watercolors and drawings (including
realistic botanical drawings), more than
1,000 graphics, photos, sculptures and
other objects.
Opening Jan. 18 will be "Warhol: Art,
Fame, Mortality," an exhibit of more than
100 works by Andy Warhol (on loan from
the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh) who
was somewhat of a kindred spirit to Dali.
The new museum is at 1 Dali Blvd., St.

SUN CORRESPONDENT

Back by popular demand, The Reflec-
tions, one of America's best vocal harmony
groups, will celebrate a doo-wop Christmas
on Friday, Dec. 13 at the Cultural Center of
Charlotte County Theater, 2280 Aaron St.,
Port Charlotte. Reserved seating tickets are
$18 per person. Show starts at 7 p.m. and
doors will open at
6 p.m. Order tickets at www.TheCultural
Center.com/tickets, or call 941-625-4175,
ext. 221. Tickets are also available at the
Cultural Center's Information Desk and
Theater Box Office.
A full cash bar will be available in the
theater lobby. The group is offering a meet
and greet, merchandise and autographs
following the show.
Enjoy some of your favorite holiday classics
and songs of yesteryear, including the group's
smash hit, "Just Like Romeo and Juliet'that
was number one on the music charts in 1964.
The song sold 4 1/ million records in the U.S.
and several million more overseas. The group
performs songs by artists that they idolized as
kids such as the Drifters, Flamingos, Coasters,
Dion and the Belmonts, Platters, Tokens,
Spaniels and more.
According to promoter Cord Coslor, owner
of Celebrity Direct Entertainment, "The
group, which still features some original
members, is better than ever.":'
The Reflections toured with the Dick
Clark Caravan of Stars in the'60s, and
appeared on Clark's popular TV program,
American Bandstand.
According to the group's website,"The


Reflections achieved success purely on the
strength of their well-crafted harmonies
and cool professionalism... The Reflections
are still heralded as one of the finest vocal
groups of the'60s pop and doo-wop music
era ...The Reflections name is proudly
displayed on the wall of the Cleveland Rock
'n'Roll Hall of Fame.:'
Why do The Reflections still like to sing?
According to Gary Banovetz,"We sing for
the love of the doo-wop music that we
grew up with in the mid '50s. We would
sing wherever we could find an echo a
high school hallway, a street corner where
we hung out, a drive-in restaurant to catch
the attention of all the girls. Today, it's the
thrill of performing in theaters throughout
the country.":'
In addition to baritone singer, Banovetz,
vocalists are Tony Micale, lead tenor; John
Dean, bass; Joey Finazzo, first tenor, who
resides in Michigan, and Sal Prado, lead
tenorwho lives right here in Port Charlotte.
"We're pleased to be back at the Cultural
Center. We love to watch the audiences'
faces light up when they hear songs that
they grew up with and loved from a gone,
but not forgotten, era," Banovetz said.
"We all have grandkids now, and in
the dressing rooms of the theaters, we're
nicknamed the 'Medicare Boys' because we
compare our medications with other artists
in the shows.:'
Currently, the group travels to various
venues from California to New York, and
recently performed at a doo-wop review in
Las Vegas.

Editor's Corner

Improvements in
Parkside infecting
other neighborhoods
neighborhoods are a lot like the
body. If disease or blight crops up
in one area, it can soon spread to
other areas if it's not addressed quickly
The same is true for revitalization
efforts, as well. As Parkside neighborhoods
continue to focus on rehabilitation and
improvement, other neighborhoods are
taking notice, too.
I received an email this week about
a house around Emerald Avenue and
Preston that is in the middle of a
makeover. Passersby are noticing the
new paint, and are hoping this will
be the start of more improvements in
their piece of Port Charlotte. Although
the writer of the email wished to
remain anonymous, he or she was
excited to see positive changes in their
area. The writer ended the email with,
"We are a cute neighborhood,
we just need some little tweaks."
That pretty much sums up most
neighborhoods in Port Charlotte.
Neighborhood blight happens because we
let it, and we can fix it just as easily.
That email got me thinking, and curious
about the neighborhood in which I
spent my married years. So I took a quick
drive to Lucerne Terrace, which is in the
Parkside District, and scoped out how my
old street had changed.
I left before the hurricane (which, by
the way, was Charley back in 2004), and
some lots now sport modern and bigger
houses. The house that used to be next to
mine was demolished (again, I think, from
the hurricane), and some houses looked
like they still needed a little TLC. Someone
had definitely put some TLC into my old
house, since it was not sporting the awful
orange color I left it in. But the yard was
sad, and certainly not as I had left it. Most
(OK, all) of my landscaping was long gone.
There's a lot of work to be done in
the heart of Port Charlotte, whether it's
in the official Parkside District or not.
Neighborhoods are starting to band
together, such as the Adorn Avenue
Neighborhood Alliance we featured
last week. The county has their share to
contribute for infrastructure maintenance,
but it's the people who live in their com-
munities who make the most difference.
So keep it up people are noticing.

Two days a week, volunteers work

"Our goal is to bring them up to third-

Charlie and Joanne Johnson coordinate
the program. "We want them reading at

According to the website www.

SIn third grade, children make the leap

Library parking lot renovations
Charlotte County will begin work Dec. 2 on the parking
lot at the Mid-County Regional Library, 2050 Forrest Nelson
Blvd., Port Charlotte. This project is expected to last approx-
imately 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. For more information, call
941-623-1002.

Kiwanians collecting diapers
The eight Kiwanis Clubs from Venice to Punta Gorda
will join together for a two-week mega diaper collection
continuing through Dec. 14. This event is part of the Florida
District of Kiwanis yearlong endeavor called the Diaper
Dump. Clubs will be working with their members and their
spheres of influence to reach a collection goal of 25,000
diapers, which then will be distributed to local agencies in
Charlotte and south Sarasota counties.
While this is a time of year when efforts are being focused
on the collection of toys and food, Kiwanians are attempting
to fill a need that will benefit families and babies in a most
practical way. Government subsidies, such as food stamps
andWIC, do not cover the cost of diapers, leading some
women to sell food stamps to acquire diapers.
Contact your local Kiwanis Club for drop-off locations, or
call 941-625-1858 for more information.

Scoopie, the official mascot of Culver's, reels one in at Charlotte Harbor.

CULVER'S: Midwestern food arrives


FROM PAGE 1
to be bringing the Culver brand to
Charlotte County.
"I've been going to Culver's for as long
as I can remember," said Buchmeier.
"When the opportunity came along to
get involved, it was very hard to say no."
Port Charlotte was appealing to the
company because of the large popula-
tion of Midwesterners who retired here
and vacation here.
Phil Keiser, Culver's President and
Chief Operating Officer, expressed his
enthusiasm toward the expansion in a
public statement:
"We're looking forward to bringing the
Culver's experience to guests in Florida,"
Keiser said. "We know there are many
people from the Midwest who know the
Culver's brand. They'll be great ambassa-
dors for our food and hospitality."
For those who are not familiar
with Culver's, the restaurant serves
a variety of foods including burgers,
sandwiches, salads, desserts and more.
The company prides itself on its high
level of hospitality, striving to make
sure that every customer leaves happy.
Culver's also has a unique way of doing
things, setting them apart from the
competition.
"It's different than a lot of other restau-
rants. We're a quick service restaurant
but we don't operate like a quick service
restaurant," continued Buchmeier.
Culver's uses fresh ingredients, and
food is cooked after the customer
places an order; nothing is cooked
ahead of time. And while the menu is
varied, Culver's is best known for its
winning combination of two signature
items ButterBurgers and Fresh
Frozen Custard.
Culver's famous ButterBurgers are
served on a lightly buttered, toasted
bun. They are made from fresh, never
frozen, U.S. beef, and are cooked to
order. Each ButterBurger includes the
customer's choice of real Wisconsin
cheese and a variety of other toppings.
Culver's Fresh Frozen Custard is a lot
like ice cream, only thicker and creami-
er. It's made in small batches, in-house,
throughout the day. Customers can
choose from vanilla, chocolate and
the flavor of the day. Flavors of the day
are chosen at random from nearly 100
options and include everything from
Chocolate Oreo Volcano to Key Lime
Custard Pie. Other desserts such as
sundaes, shakes and malts are all made
with Culver's Fresh Frozen Custard.
Each year, Culver's holds a Grill
Master Competition where top team
members showcase their abilities to
deliver quality, order accuracy and food
safety while competing for the national
title. Shawn Frohmader is a national
semi-finalist in the competition, and
he will be bringing his talents from
Wisconsin to Charlotte County. As


Steve Buchmeier, owner/operator of the
Port Charlotte location, grew up just miles
away from the original Culver's restaurant in
Wisconsin.
the 1st Assistant Manager for the Port
Charlotte location, Frohmader will assist
new employees in developing the same
skills that helped earn him the honor.
"I've been doing this for 15 years
and I can't even begin to explain how
excited I am," said Frohmader. "I'm
looking forward to getting back to work
and cooking."
Culver's will not only benefit the
eager diners of Charlotte County, but
it will also help to stimulate the local
economy. Sixty-eight part-time and
full-time employees have been hired at
the restaurant.
In the future, Culver's plans on
hosting Share Night events. Local clubs,
charities, and other organizations can
take part. A portion of the proceeds
from each Share Night will be donated
to the respective group.
"We do look forward to getting
involved with the community," added
Buchmeier.
A long construction timeline with
a few setbacks have postponed the orig-
inal opening date of the restaurant. This
allowed some extra time for Scoopie,
Culver's official mascot, to explore its
new community. The giant waffle cone
of custard has been spotted fishing
at Charlotte Harbor, hanging out at
Englewood beach, playing catch with
Stoney at Charlotte Sports Park and
getting a golf lesson from PGA Pro Mark
Faulkner at Port Charlotte Golf Club.
After all of the hard work put forth in
preparing for the opening of Culver's,
something is obvious everyone is
enthusiastic.
"I can't wait to get the door open
and start introducing our brand to the
Floridians who are unfamiliar with it,
and reconnecting with Midwesterners,"
Buchmeier said. "It feels like a long time
coming. I'm very excited."
Culver's is located at 385 Kings
Highway in the Walmart shopping
center. The restaurant's dining room,
patio, and drive-through will be open
daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. For more
information, visit the company website
at www.culvers.com.

Heart of Mercy Ministry joins forces to lend a hand


HERALD PHOTOS BY BETSY WILLIAMS


After Daniel Moreno, 4, finished his early
Thanksgiving meal, he sat on the curb in the
parking lot of Dr. Alan Gruning's office in
Charlotte Harbor to listen to the music Amy
Zamot and the Praise of Worship Team from
Door of Refuge Church. The youngster was just
one of many who were treated to free food,
clothes and for the kids, face-painting, courtesy
of the Heart of Mercy Ministry. Together with
other community-minded groups, they join up
monthly to help those in need.


Peter Garcia with Door of Refuge in Punta Gorda, Elizabeth Piazza, Pastor Daniel Caimi and his
mother Pastor Sarah Jansson with the Heart of Mercy Ministry were among the volunteers who
served an early Thanksgiving dinner on Nov. 16 in the parking lot of Dr. Alan Gruning's office in
Charlotte Harbor.


Hugh Haleyjuggles two plates and a take-out
container from the table of home-cooked
Thanksgiving food.


Alissah Zamot, 10, lent her artistic skills to
paint faces for kids like Alena Grijalva, 7, while
at the event.


Yecelyn Santiago volunteered to serve the Thanksgiving dinner; Edwin Renta fills his to-go
container.


The best job of all Ahdee Villalobos
volunteers at the dessert table.


Two-year-old Alex Carrasquillo Jr. grabs an

Phil and Brenda Menendez will be riding together on the Tour de Cure ride for a cure for diabetes
on March 30, in Lakewood Ranch, Fla. He is diabetic and she is not. He regularly rides his bicycle
to help control his diabetes.


Tina Elkins, an employee of the Bicycle Center in Port Charlotte, created these cookies for the
Tour de Cure kickoff party held Nov. 21 at the Bicycle Center. The purpose of the party was to
educate people about diabetes and to sign up riders for the event which will be held in Lakewood
Ranch, Fla., on March 30.


TOUR DE CURE: The Bicycle Center holds kickoff party for March fundraiser


FROM PAGE 1
County, described the different
types of diabetes and emphasized
the foundation for diabetes control
- meals, exercise and hydration.
"You can actually gain weight by
skipping meals; it's not a good idea,"
Hahn said.
The American Diabetes
Association (ADA) was represented
by Melissa Parsons from Tampa,
who organizes the Tour de Cure
rides in southwest Florida. She says
that in 2012, there were about 725
riders with an anticipation of 1,000
riders this year.
"Last year, the team sponsored by
the Bicycle Center included seven
riders," said Rob Dunaway, manager
of the Bicycle Center. "This year,
already nine have signed up and the
ride isn't until March."
Each registered rider agrees to
raise a minimum of $200 for the
project.
"The ride follows a beautiful
scenic route, passing by pastures
of cattle and other pleasant sights,"
said Wayne Palmer, who is the team
captain for Bicycle Center's riders.
He says that the ride is completely
safe, with police escorts and is a
good family outing. There are seven
rest stops along the course.
Rob Dunaway accompanies
the riders in a Bicycle Center
vehicle for moral support and to be
available for any flat tires or other
breakdowns.
Last year, none of his team had
any problems, but he stopped to


help other riders.
"I couldn't just drive by and not
help," Dunaway said.
There is a choice of four different
routes to follow. The most ambitious
choose the 100-mile course. There
are also 62-mile, 35-mile and
10-mile routes. Tour de Cure is not
a race; it is simply a healthy, fund-
raising event.
A celebrated group of riders is
called Red Riders. These are individ-
uals who have diabetes and regular-
ly ride their bicycles to help control
their disease.
Phil Menendez is one such person.
He and his wife, Brenda, who is not
a diabetic, will be riding together on
March 30.
Kim Campanella, owner of Bicycle
Center, has been in the bicycle
business since 1972, and has been at
the present location, 3795 Tamiami
Trail in Port Charlotte, since 1992.
"I feel fortunate, I feel blessed to
be able to get up in the morning and
change other people's lives with the
simple pleasure of riding a bike,"
Campanella said.
Speaking of the Tour de Cure she
said, "One person may not be able
to make a big difference, but when
you rally the forces and unite, there
can be a huge impact. I have the
greatest job in the world and I make
a salary by changing other people's
lives. I look forward to going to work
each day!"
For more information about the
ride, call Melissa at 1-800-DIABETES
(342-2383) ext. 3358 or the Bicycle
Center at 941-627-6600.

Darwin Fulford holds up his hole-in-one certificate after shooting one on Nov. 17 at the Port
Charlotte Classic.



Port Charlotte senior



records ace at tourney


By CHUCK BALLARO
HERALD SPORTS WRITER

It took Darwin Fulford more than
30 years to get his first hole-in-one. In
the last 15, he has recorded four.
But last month at the Port Charlotte
Classic at the Port Charlotte Golf Club,
Fulford may have gotten the biggest
one of his life, acing the par-3 15th hole
from 116 yards out with an eight-iron.
Fulford said he did it with precision
and skill... and a ton of luck.
"I just had a smooth shot and it
accidentally went in the hole. What can
you say?" Fulford said with a laugh.
"I tried to get it on the green, and it
took one bounce and went in the hole."
Fulford didn't treat the shot any
different from any other hole-in-one.
It's a feeling that never gets old.
But after 45 years of playing, the
opportunities to shoot them don't
come every day.
"It's a thrill whenever you get one,
especially at my age," Fulford said, but

golfing tradition of the man of honor
having to buy drinks for everybody in
the clubhouse, which could bankrupt a
man of lesser means.
"I'm only buying drinks for my group.
I'm not buying for 100 people. Forget
that," Fulford said.
The shot allowed Fulford to finish
third in the senior flight of the tourna-
ment and bring home some of his entry
fee, though he said he might have done
better had he putted better.
Fulford had a hole-in-one last year
at Sarasota National, as well as one at
Kingsway in Lake Suzy.
His first was in Birmingham, Ala.,
when he lived there shortly before
moving to Port Charlotte in 2000, where
he lives in a house near the first hole of
the Golf Club.
Fulford was born in Texas and raised
in Virginia. After serving in the Air Force
for 22 years, he moved to Alabama to
work on military aircraft before his
move to Florida.

Relay For Life holds Zumbathon


Porky's Roadhouse in Charlotte Harbor was the site for the Zumbathon
charity event for Relay for Life held Nov. 9. With 17 instructors from five
studios around the county representing two Relay for Life teams, the event
included Zumba step and shake continuously in between the raffles and
giveaways. Here, Brenda Bashaw whoops it up during the Zumbathon.

Vol tunteerism

kN PUNTA G 0t PA
BY GORDON BOWER, PGH CORRESPONDENT
ast year about this time, the Punta Gorda Herald printed a story about six indi-
viduals who spend a major chunk of their free time working for nothing to help
others. The timing was excellent. With the holidays about to arrive, celebrating
the act of giving, be it dollars or time, just seems so appropriate.
It's time again to honor those who brighten other's lives. Here's a look at volun-
teers who make a difference as a group.
BRINGING BEAUTY TO PUNTA GORDA
Punta Gorda is noted for its beauty, and residents are indeed fortunate to
have waterfront, parks and a tropical landscape to enjoy. That's not to say a
few warts here and there couldn't use a little sprucing up. One such wart was
the spacious entrance to the Nature Park at 1623 Aqui Esta Drive in Punta Gorda
Isles.

EDITOR'S INSIGHTS


PUNTA GORDA

Pamela Stalk is the editor of the
Punta Gorda Herald. Contact her at
pgherald@sun-herald.com.


here is no doubt in my mind that
the key to a fulfilled life is one that
includes the act of volunteerism-
the selfless act of giving back to the world
around us.
Some people maybe inspired to help
the hungry, homeless and charities
involving children, while others may seek
out volunteer hours in causes related to
health and the advancement of medical
treatments. Then there are those who have
a soft spot in their hearts for saving the
environment, beautifying green spaces
and helping injured, sick or abandoned
animals return to nature. And let's not
forget the individuals who seek out the
promotion of the arts, humanities and
literacy.


Regardless of where your interests lie,
the season of giving is now upon us. What
better time to get involved than by giving
a piece of yourself to the causes you most
admire?
This week's Punta Gorda Herald features
several individuals who have a strong
sense of what it means to be a volunteer.
They are the behind-the-scenes folks
who keep nonprofit organizations afloat,
offering their time and physical labor for
the causes and organizations they love
most.
My hope is that their words will inspire
more people in our society to join a cause
that matters to them. In truth, there is a
cause for every person, and the spirit of
volunteerism is always in demand.

Chamber:


Punta Gorda is vibrant


this time of year


ow it's December already.
Since the lighting up of our
city a couple of weeks back,
things have been really hectic with
visitors and events alike, and there is a
great feeling of holiday spirit in the air.
So many of you have commented just
how vibrant Punta Gorda is and how
much energy there is when you visit
here. This is also that season of tran-
sition as many visitors arrive for the
winter. Remember to start making your
restaurant reservations in advance,
drive with just a little more consider-
ation of visitors and remember to be
ambassadors for our great city.
It was so good to see Fishermen's
Village and downtown Punta Gorda
jam-packed for the lighting ceremonies
and to all those who shared those
precious days with us thank you.
These nights are so crazy, but our
local businesses are very grateful for
your patronage, even if you had a little
longer wait to get service.
We were also extremely thankful to
all those who came out to dedicate the
new veterans' fountain, its plinth and
plaque podium in Kiwanis Park last
week. This community is so proud of its
veterans and now we have a most-fit-
ting and permanent tribute to their
honor. Enjoy the new sight by driving
down Nesbit Street toward Laishley
Park after dark.
Just around the corner now is the
chamber's annual Lighted Boat Parade,
setting sail at dusk from Edgewater
Lake on the northern side of the har-
bor. The route will take participating
boats across the harbor, passing the
Isles Yacht Club, Fishermen's Village
and Laishley Park. For a route map and
best viewing sites, visit the chamber's
website, www.puntagordachamber.com
and click on the link for "Lighted Boat
Parade" under "Quick Links."
Remember that all participating
sailboats will be unable to go under
the bridges of U.S. 41, so they will not
make it to Laishley Park. We also do not
recommend Gilchrist Park as a viewing
area as the boats will be too far out in
the harbor at that point. If you have
a boat and want to be in the parade,
visit the same page on the chamber's
website, where registration forms are
available. It is free to participate, and
we even throw a special party for each

boat captain and first mate after the
event. This year's party is set for Dec.
16.
Fishermen's Village, 1200 W Retta
Esplanade, is always a great viewing
spot, but the crowds there can be
extensive. To get the best seats, arrive
early and stake out a spot. It will give
you plenty of time to shop and eat at
the same time.
If you prefer something a little more
sedate, why not join the chamber for a
private viewing party at the Isles Yacht
Club, 1780 W Marion Ave. The party
is limited to 150 people and will offer
people a prime spot to see the parade
pass by, live narration as the boats sail
past and access to the Isles' bar for
drinks and light snacks. Tickets to this
party are $15, which includes a $5 bar
credit.
To purchase these tickets, either call
the chamber office at 941-639-3720 or
visit the online payment center page of
the chamber's website.

Chamber happenings
The public is cordially invited to the
grand opening and ribbon-cutting
ceremony for CrossFit Punta Gorda,

The fun continues Dec. 5, when
chamber members head to Timothy

office, 3941 Tamiami Trail, Suite 3173,
Punta Gorda. A ribbon-cutting cere-
mony is set for 5:30 p.m. at the office,
located in the Publix Shopping plaza on

Downtown Gatorz



coming to Punta Gorda


motorists traveling northbound
on U.S. 41 may have no-
ticed a banner on King Street
announcing a new restaurant called
Downtown Gatorz coming to that lo-
cation. It is no joke the new owners,
Doug Harris, Paul Russo, Juan Villegas
and Mark Spieldenner, are planning
to bring the award-winning wings and
sauces to downtown Punta Gorda by
opening their doors to a 5,000-square-
foot building the second week of
December.
"This location has changed hands
a lot of times over the past few years,"
Doug Harris, former owner of Good
Times II Lounge and Aqui Esta Liquors,
explained. "But our place is different.
We will have a full kitchen, a full liquor
license, not just beer and wine, and live
entertainment. Televisions will be lining
the walls, inside and out, so people
can watch their favorite sports teams.
There will be pool tables and vending
machines for the kids. We will definitely
have that atmosphere that a lot of
people are looking for when they want
to sit down to have something to eat
and drink."
And that's not all.
They decided to expand and added an
additional 1,500-square feet of space to
accommodate all their needs.
"We have about 5,000-square feet
total," John Russo, owner of Impact
Homes, Inc., in Port Charlotte, said.

"We have two full-service bars that can
seat about 20 people each. The band
will have an entire corner on the deck.
Along the walls will be more tables
for our customers. At some point in
the future, we may even blow out the
wall between the two rooms to make it
larger."
Russo, whose company is doing all
the renovations for the new restaurant,
said they also installed motorized
automatic roll down shutters that can
be opened or closed depending upon
the weather.
Another big plus for the new eat-
ery is having Mark Spieldenner, the
original proprietor of the Gatorz in Port
Charlotte, on board with his recipes.
"Mark's wings were the best in
Charlotte County for many years,"
Harris said. "He owned the Port
Charlotte Gatorz for 20 years. He will be
our consultant. We will also be offering
an expanded menu as well. All our food
will be homemade. In fact, the coaches
at Charlotte High School told me that


Downtown Gatorz, located at 502 King St., is set to open in Punta Gorda during the second week
of December. Shown here are two of the new owners, Doug Harris and Paul Russo.


they will be bringing the players here after
a game to have some wings and soda."
Harris said that he has always given
back to the community. He has held food
and toy drives at his former business to
assist local charities.
"That tradition will continue once we
are up and running," he said.
Downtown Gatorz will also be holding
a calendar photo shot featuring Punta
Gorda girls, according to Harris.
"We will be calling it 'Hometown
Hotties,'" he said. "It will be tastefully


done and feature 13 girls- there will be an
extra month."
Harris said that there is another unique
aspect to their new location the
building has historical significance. It was
originally a car dealership in the 1930s
and 1940s.
"Punta Gorda needed a new hot spot,"
Harris said, "and we felt it was the right
time to open one."
Downtown Gatorz will be located at 502
King St. For more information, contact
Harris at 941-740-4925.


Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce members gathered recently for a ribbon-cutting for
State Farm Insurance-Mike Martin. The office is located on Cross Street in Punta Gorda.

VOLUNTEERISM

FROM PAGE 1

The park itself has always been an oa-
sis of beauty, but the road frontage was
most accurately described as a field,
with no adornments but a sign, small
parking lot and big patch of trimmed
but unkempt grass. Then, Richard Polk
and his band of volunteers, collectively
called the Punta Gorda Isles Green
Thumbs, decided to work a miracle.
Polk said, "We had just finished the
History Park at the time and were look-
ing for a new project. We went looking
all around the city for a new one and
decided to do this."
Do it they did. The front of the park is
full of well-maintained plants some
15 to 20 beds with bromeliads, shrubs
and other colorful plants. The park
frontage now has an herb and spice
bed, a sensual plant bed and even
butterfly gardens. Oaks are growing
around the grounds on their way to
providing much-needed shade. It's
a beautiful space now, so beautiful
that TEAM Punta Gorda, no stranger
to beautification, saw fit to bestow a
special award on the Green Thumbs for
their contribution.
Chief Operating Officer Judy
Brentano, who was visiting the park
during the group's usual Friday

morning work period, said, "This is
the first time we've given TEAM Punta
Gorda's Citizens' Initiative Award. It
was developed by TEAM leadership
and unanimously awarded to the
Green Thumbs.. .It's just a phenomenal
project; this was special."
The Green Thumbs had lots of help in
seeing the park come to fruition. Seed
money to get started was donated by
the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association
(where most of the volunteers are from),
and sizable donations were provided
by Keep Charlotte Beautiful and ReMax
Harbor Realty. City residents kicked in,
and the city hooked the park up to the
water supply and mows the grass.
Since the entire park was purchased
by the city with a Florida Community
Trust Grant from the Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP), it had
strings attached. It's a nature park, so
non-native plants can only be used as
accents, and plants have to be hand
watered; no sprinkler system allowed.
With the city, a state bureaucracy
and a volunteer group involved, the
potential for snafus is always present.
That hasn't happened, according to Joan


Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce volunteers Cathy Getz, Stephanie
Stewart, Valerie Harding and, shown in front, Diane Lowy keep the
office running.

LEFT: Volunteers fan out to tend to the beds of plants installed by
the Green Thumbs at the Punta Gorda Nature Park.


LeBeau, the city's urban design chief
planner who works with the group to
keep the city, DEP and the volunteers
on the same page.
She said, "I'm here every week to see
what's going on, where we've been and
where we're going. It's a good com-
munity partnership people coming
together to get things done."
Nevertheless, the volunteers are the
ones out there hauling mulch, weeding,
digging planting holes and pruning,
even during the summer when nobody
wants to do physical labor outside.
Polk said, "We're out here doing work
we would probably pay to have done at
our homes."
He has 19 volunteers, and at least 10
show up every Friday morning, even
during summer. They are all there for
the reason Peggy Jensen acknowledged:
"This was just an empty, dirty field.
We're all friends, and we feel like we're
leaving something behind, giving
something back to the community."
The Green Thumbs have many needs
for the park, including donations, vol-
unteers, seating and tables. It's an edu-
cational park and is already being used
for lectures and classes. There are many
ways to contribute to help it become
all it can be. To get involved, contact
Polk at 941-833-4414 or richardpolk@
comcast.net. For more information, visit
www.pgigreenthumbs.org.

GIRLS FRIDAY-- AND THE
REST OF THE WEEK

Downtown at the Punta Gorda
Chamber of Commerce office, 252 W
Marion Ave., a small group of volun-
teers is hard at work every day of the
week. Four lively ladies Cathy Getz,
Stephanie Stewart, Valerie Harding and
Diane Lowy labor behind the scenes
answering phones, directing visitors,
putting together packages for those
relocating to the area as well as offering
services to chamber members. And,
most impressive, they all love their part-
time volunteer job.
Historic District resident Getz,
originally from Michigan, ended up
volunteering for the chamber as a result
of her devotion to paddling a dragon
boat.


Volunteer Cathy Getz collects Punta Gorda
brochures that will be packaged and sent
to a caller requesting information from the
chamber.


She said, "BecauseVal and I co-coor-
dinate the chamber's War on the Peace
River dragon boat festival, I was asked
to come to work and provide some help.
The chamber was experiencing growth
and needed help with all the people
coming down in season. I had the time.
I was retired for 4 years and needed
something to do. Val's the one who
talked me into it."
She runs around doing errands,
answers the phones, prepares packages
of informational brochures to send out
and is especially busy around the time
of the annual festival.
To give you an idea of the organiza-
tional skills required, last year's festival
drew 800 participants and a crowd of
3,000 to 5,000 spectators. A business
owner and manufacturer's rep during
her working life, she also spends time
as the retail manager of The Yoga
Sanctuary.
If you call the chamber and hear a
lilting Irish accent, you're talking to
Stephanie Stewart. Since hubbie Larry
was in the U.S. Army, she's from all over.
After settling for good in Punta Gorda,
she's been an active volunteer for 8
years.
"I started with the chamber in 2006
when it was still in Fishermen's Village,"
she said. "I just wanted to keep my
finger on the pulse of the commu-
nity. I also volunteer at the PGI Civic
Association front desk, the Gifted Gator
(Boutique) and the Visual Arts Center. I
love greeting people, answering phones,
answering questions about Punta Gorda
and mailing out packages to people who
are thinking of relocating here."
"The No. 1 place we send people to
is Fishermen's Village," she said. "It's in
first place every year."
PGI resident Diane Lowy ended up at
the chamber after responding to an ad
in the Charlotte Sun asking for tempo-
rary help. She said, "Stephanie was going
to Ireland, and they needed someone to
work for her on Friday afternoons."
An assistant manager of a vitamin
company during her previous life in
Long Island, N.Y., Lowy also volunteers
at the front desk of the PGICA and the
Cultural Center of Charlotte County. She
loves the interaction with the people
her chamber job requires and had
no trouble adjusting to life in a much

smaller place.
She said, "I love talking to people
about Punta Gorda. I love the small-
town atmosphere. I grew up in the
Bronx. Here, you walk by people, and
you actually know them. That never
happens in a big city."
Burnt Store Marina residentValerie
Harding is called the "PowerPoint
Ranger" by her colleagues because of
the computer skills she picked up as a
medical logistician for the Army.
"I make signs and flyers," she said.
"Use it or lose it; you forget very quickly.
I wanted to retain my skills, plus it's nice
to be needed."
Harding also spends time volunteer-
ing at Burnt Store Marina Golf Club,
Burnt Store Presbyterian Church and as
a bell ringer at Christmas, but she really
relishes her time at the chamber.
"It's never boring," she said. "One day,
a lady walked in who was the school
nurse at my school in Dayton, Ohio. I
didn't recognize her because I never got
sick."
Another example of the interesting
people they meet and the queries the
volunteers respond to was recounted by
office manager and volunteer coordina-
tor Martha Litson.
She said, "One day, two elderly ladies
stopped in during the afternoon and
said, 'We left Miami this morning for the
Keys and want to know if we are getting
close."
Chamber president John Wright has
nothing but admiration for the ladies
who help make his job easier and
treats them accordingly. He said, "Every
organization needs reliable volunteers,
and we have the best in town."
Harding, ever dedicated, recalled a
time when she was running late because
of a traffic accident on Burnt Store Road.
She said, "He does treat us well. I called
that day to tell him I was going to be
a little late, and he said, 'Val, you're a
volunteer.'"

HABITAT'S VOLUNTEERS KEEP
ON GIVING
While our first two groups are small
bands of volunteers, Punta Gorda is also
home to a global organization that runs
on volunteers Habitat for Humanity
of Charlotte County. Habitat is an

international nonprofit housing orga-
nization that builds homes for people
who lack the income to go through the
traditional mortgage process.
Habitat is in three locations in
the county Englewood and Port
Charlotte, which have retail stores, and
at 1750 Manzana Ave., Punta Gorda,
which houses a retail outlet, as well as
the organization's construction arm and
corporate offices.
The Punta Gorda location is a
bustling place, especially the retail
area. Habitat is pretty successful getting
donations of cash and in-kind services
from the community and local business
sponsors, but the majority of its income
comes from the sale of donated items
sold through retail outlets staffed
mostly by volunteers.
Volunteer coordinator Brenda
Graham knows the organization
couldn't function without them.
She stated, "Our resale stores are
open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday
through Saturdays (extended until 8
p.m. Monday and Wednesdays during
November and December). These 48
hours of operation are covered by a
series of volunteers working various
hours and shifts..."
"Volunteering," she continued, "at
our resale stores allows individuals to
enjoy the stimulation of retail, all the
while knowing that 92 cents of every
dollar earned in our stores goes toward
our core mission of building decent
and affordable homes for lower-in-
come qualifying residents of Charlotte
County."
Graham estimates 725 volunteers
contributed at least eight hours last
year in the stores, and their tasks are as
varied as their backgrounds. They load
and unload trucks and customers' vehi-
cles, move merchandise into the huge
showroom, clean and prepare items for
the floor, dust them, help customers,
price goods, help the cashiers and greet
customers.
Volunteers come from all walks
of life, and Graham gets hers from a
variety of sources newspaper ads,
emails, groups from other nonprofits
like churches, community service work-
ers, high school students accumulating
community service hours and former
business owners or retail workers who


want to stay busy.
Word of mouth is often as good as
an ad, and Habitat benefits from its
sterling reputation.
"We are fortunate in that Habitat has
universal appeal," she said. "All it takes
is one person to say, 'What a great
program Habitat has. Did you know
three people are getting homes?' It's
wonderful."
Graham is also appreciative of the
local snowbird population, which
surprised her last fall when she was
new to the volunteer coordinator job.
"We've been blessed to have dedicat-
ed snowbirds," she said. "They come in
and say, 'I'm back. I work on Tuesdays
in the retail store in Punta Gorda.'
Then, they come in and do their task."
Her last word on how important
volunteers are left no doubt where she
stands. She said, "Our volunteers are
the key to our success. We could not do
all our programs and functions without
the community. We are so blessed with
our community."
Punta Gorda store manager Mark
Carpenter agreed, saying, "They are
our backbone. We've got doctors and
lawyers, a retired master sergeant from
the Air Force. I have two Ph.Ds and a


foot doctor. I'm truly blessed; they are
crucial to our success."
Thursday and Friday volunteer Bob
Haines has found his niche at the store,
and it frequently involves moving
things that weigh more than he does.
He doesn't mind because it keeps him
busy.
"I've been here about eight or nine
months," he said. "I got bored everyday
sitting at home and started volunteer-
ing. I liked the people I work with and
just stayed."
Diane Riegel discovered the Habitat
store while making purchases after
Hurricane Charley. She joined the
volunteer force in January and hasn't
looked back, accepting any job from
unloading furniture to sorting and
pricing.
"It was obviously for the giving back,
but I really like the people working
here," she said.

Find a feathered friend for life


lenty of evidence points to the
fact this area has a love affair with
animals. Just look at the number
of nonprofit organizations the Animal
Welfare League of Charlotte County,
OctagonWildlife Sanctuary, Peace River
Wildlife Center among them that care
for abandoned, injured or abused ani-
mals using donated money and volun-
teer labor.
One relatively new group, Parrot
Outreach Society, has joined this distin-
guished company, and, like the others,
has no trouble finding animals that need
rescued.
The American Pet Products Association
national owners survey reports 6.9
million households own a bird, consid-
erably less than those who own dogs or
cats but still an amazingly large number.
The relinquishment number is also very
high because so many bird buyers have
no idea what they are getting into when
they take their brightly colored feathered
companion-to-be home in a cage.
Birds can be messy, noisy and even
mean; some of the big-beak birds can
inflict serious damage if they choose to.
The biggest issue, however, is they need
constant attention many owners can't,
or won't, give them.
Considering the lifespan of these
birds, 75 to 100 years for the largest
ones, it's no surprise many owners
choose to give them up.
Pam Hill has certifications as an
avian specialist from several national
organizations and is the founder and
president of Parrot Outreach Society.
She has been taking in unwanted
birds for years and is well aware of the
relinquishment problem.
She started accepting birds at her
house and started the organization last
year in a small storefront in the Sun
State Commerce Center at McKenzie
and Elizabeth streets. Several months
ago, she had to move into a larger
space at the center. The bird business,
if you can call it that, is booming.
She said, "When people find out you
have birds, it's a never-ending revolving
door. Everybody wants to give you a
bird. People just start showing up; it's
word of mouth."
Parrot Outreach Society now has 80

birds, all adoptable and ranging in size
from parakeets to macaws, and 200
unadoptables are at a sister organiza-
tion, Bird Gardens of Naples.
Hill said of her charges, "They can
be dirty, loud and obnoxious. We call
them Velcro birds because they stick
to you. They need constant interaction
and are so intelligent. They even have
emotions, just like human beings."
As evidence of bird IQ, she cites the
case of a famous African gray parrot
named "Alex" and cockatoos.
She said, "'Alex' could count and
knew his shapes, numbers and colors.
Cockatoos are really smart. They are
called the mechanics because you can't
keep them in their cage. If they want
to get out, they will take it apart. They
can use tools. Their intelligence is mind
numbing."
In other words, birds can be a
handful, especially if their humans
aren't educated on their needs. This
usually results in a relinquishment, and
Hill has heard all the excuses a baby,
relocation, retirement, health, foreclo-
sure, noise, bites, etc.
Contributing to the relinquishment
problem is unregulated breeding by
people trying to make a profit on their
birds and lack of knowledge on the part
of bird owners.
"Owners just let them breed," Hill
said. "They can't be sterilized. You
just have to avoid giving them nesting
opportunities, but people don't know
that."
Hill estimates she averages 10
relinquishments a month, and said in
most cases the human, not the bird, is
the problem. Relinquishment can be
hard on the birds and the human but is
better than the alternative some people
choose releasing them in the wild.
She said, "When we humanize them,
they become totally helpless. They'll be

dead in 36 to 72 hours from cats and
hawks. They can't fly well."
Parrot Outreach Society, under Hill's
direction, has established a strong
adoption program that is mostly keep-
ing up with relinquishments by match-
ing the right bird with the right owner.
It involves multiple interactions with a
bird in the bonding room, home visits
to check out conditions and lifestyles
and a strong dose of education.
She said, "Adopters need to educate
themselves. Go online, visit a rescue
operation and volunteer. You can't
ever have too much knowledge when
you're dealing with a creature that is so
intelligent. They also need to have an
established relationship with a vet that
does birds...An adoption can happen
in a week if the owner is educated and
the bird likes them."
People who adopt from Parrot
Outreach Society end up with a healthy
bird that fits their lifestyle and person-
alities, as well as a number of financial
incentives they will not get from a
private sellers or retail stores.
Hill said, "Donations to adopt a
parakeet are $10 and go up to $400
for a macaw. Macaws normally go for
$1,800 and up. Our motto is, Adopt,
don't shop.'"
Adopters also get the cage if a bird
arrived in one, knowledgeable advice,
free grooming and access to low-priced
toys, food, cages and other bird needs
in the retail section.
"Stop by," she said. "That's why we
have the retail section open. We have
the cheapest prices in town to make it
affordable and make sure the bird has
everything it needs."


PARROT OUTREACH SOCIETY
MISSION: Caring for and adopting out
relinquished birds
WHERE: 1205 Elizabeth St., Suite I, Punta Gorda
Hours: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Fridays,
10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday
CONTACT: 941-347-8876,

WEBSITE: parrotoutreachsociety.org

Even if you're not in the market for
a bird, Parrot Outreach Society can
still use your help. Food, cages and
cleaning supplies are always needed, as
are monetary donations. For $10 to $20
a month, you can sponsor a bird and
get emailed photos, information and
visiting privileges.
Volunteers to supplement the 10 who
help out now are also needed to help
clean cages (done every day) and feed,
water and socialize the birds.
That's how volunteer Dusty
Hardman, a knowledgeable and proud
owner of a Parrot Outreach Society
bird, got started. She said, "I didn't
know a thing about birds. I stopped
at the food pantry around the corner
and saw the banner and said, 'That's
interesting.' I started off cleaning
cages...It's a great way to get some bird
experience. Pam does a fantastic job."
Parrot Outreach Society has an infor-
mative website at www.parrotoutreach
society.org, where you can learn more
about its mission, adoptions, dona-
tions, volunteering and retail shop.
Better yet, stop in for a visit to see
and learn more about these beautiful,
highly intelligent animals.


Pam Hill, president of Parrot Outreach Society, plants a kiss on one of a pair of cockatoos that can
be adopted. Hill has multiple certifications and several decades of experience to help match the
right bird to the right owner.

he Charlotte High School junior
varsity girls basketball team has a
lot going for it.
It has great ball handlers, enough size
to keep a team honest and a disciplined
approach that has led them to a quick
start on the season following an open-
ing-night loss.
But the young Tarpons nearly met its
match against Imagine School of North
Port, which didn't seem intimidated
by playing up in class, as the team was
unbeaten going into its Nov. 21 contest.
Charlotte trailed by as much as five in
the second half before scratching back
in the fourth quarter, taking the lead for
good with less than 5 minutes on the
clock and pulling away for a 37-28 win.
The Tarpons (4-1) were led by
Michelle Bunch with 13 points. Abigail
Massey added 12 and Jamie Gonzalez
put up six.
Coach Rebecca Frantz said the
sophomores have contributed leader-
ship while the freshmen have devel-
oped a little quicker than expected,
given many of them have never played
organized ball before.
"They've gotten some quality min-
utes, not as many as I would have liked,
but you know how it goes," Frantz said.
Gonzalez, the sophomore point
guard, is the spark that gets the team
going. She is an excellent ball handler
who sees the court better than anyone
on the team and has improved with her
shot.
Sophomores Lili Babilonia and
Massey round out the experienced
three-guard alignment, with Denise
Smith able to eat up minutes when

either starter needs a breather.
"The guard position is one of our
strengths," Frantz said. "We have three
strong guards that can get the ball up
the floor, feed it into the post and get
things going."
Bunch may be the most important
addition to the team, as the freshman
provides much-needed size to a team
that has lacked it in previous years.
"It will be nice to have her develop on
JV, but it will also be nice on varsity for
years to come," Frantz said. "We were a
little height deprived there, too."
Nicole Jones also takes up space in
the post, who Frantz said has been the
team's most-improved player after hard
work in the offseason.
"We're not huge, but at least we have
a little size," Frantz said. "We can com-
bat some of the height we go against."
Frantz said the team is still learning
where they have to be defensively,
boxing out and rebounding, but they
are getting better every game.
They have also learned to go up
with offensive rebounds and not give
up 2-foot shots for 10- and 12-footers.
Now the key is to learn to see the floor
better.

Rebecca Frantz, the coach for the Charlotte
High School junior varsity girls basketball
team, watches the game on Nov. 21.
Frantz is that many of the freshmen
have never played before besides
recreational leagues or street ball. So
instead of teaching the finer points, it's
about teaching where to line up on the
free-throw line and jump balls.
"They have a lot to learn about the
game and having confidence in it,"
Frantz said. "Then, you have some who
try to do too much. But once they gain
that confidence, you stop seeing that."

Hallelujah!

From time immemorial, the universal
expression of worship and rejoicing, often
enriched by musical accompaniment.

This Christmas season, let us
join the celebratory fete
that dates back to ancient Latin,
Greek and Hebrew cultures at
a "Glorious" concert by the
Charlotte Symphony Orchestra,
conducted by Maestro Raffaele Ponti.
An ideal entry into the joy
of this holiday season,
the classical Christmas concert
is a peak entertainment event
for the entire family.

Just look at this program:

Elderly can face prolonged

delirium post-surgery


DEAR DR. ROACH: One
week ago, my 99-year-old
dad tripped over a metal
strip that connects carpet
to tile in a brightly lit
concession area at a local
movie theater and broke
his left hip. Surgery was
performed the next day,
and he has been suffering
the side effects ever since.
Hospital personnel told
me he would need rehab
after the fact, but no one
mentioned the effects of
anesthesia on the very
elderly. He had throat
stretching done twice in
the past five years and
came out of that anesthe-
sia the very same person
who went under, so I was
quite unprepared for his
current state.
He is suffering from
delirium, and has not
eaten since before he fell,
as he refuses to swallow
anything. He is on an IV
started a few days ago.
As an only child, I
am tasked with finding
the appropriate rehab/
nursing facility for when
he is released. I have tried
word-of-mouth and the
Medicare site and have
visited several locations.
How do I choose the one
that is right for him? He
was very independent
previously, even drove his
car to errands and lived
at an independent-living
retirement home. I am
heartsick over this entire
situation and additionally
stressed to make the right
decision. L.D.H.
ANSWER: This is indeed
a difficult situation, and
your father is lucky to have
a concerned child to help
him.
First of all, despite
the broken hip and the
complication of delirium,
your father has a good
chance of getting back
to his function, before
breaking his hip. But both
delirium and a fractured
hip are serious. Delirium
is common in the elderly
during hospitalizations,
and it can be devastating.
People with post-surgery
delirium can return to
normal functioning, but it
can take months. Recovery
from physical injury, such
as the hip fracture, is much
slower during delirium.
There are some resourc-
es to help you find out
more about rehab/nursing
facilities. You already have
looked at www.medicare.
gov, and searched for
Nursing Home Compare.
This gives ratings based
on the Medicare database.
However, since what
makes a nursing home isn't
the bricks and mortar, but
the people who work there,


Dr. Roach

talking to the staff, as
well as current or former
patients, can give you
more information.
The booklet on
Alzheimer's disease gives
a detailed presentation
of this common illness.
Readers can obtain a copy

DEAR DR. ROACH: I
have two grandchildren
who spike fevers and get
sick a lot. How valuable are
natural wellness formulas
to build up their system
and get them stronger?
Their doctor has told them
it will not help, but he isn't
giving them anything to
help their immune system
get stronger. Any sugges-
tions? K.L.
ANSWER: The immune
system gets stronger as
kids age. The key to a
healthy immune system
remains a good diet, good
exercise and sleep, and
avoiding too much stress.
Good hand hygiene is
necessary for reducing
exposure to bacteria and
viruses. I am skeptical of
the ability for supplements
to improve the immune
system.
That being said, there
are vitamins and trace
minerals that are essential
for the immune system
to function at peak
level. Most of us can get
adequate amounts from
a healthy diet. The supple-
ments sold to "boost the
immune system" generally
are multivitamins with
some additional unproven
ingredients.
Dr Roach regrets that
he is unable to answer
individual letters, but
will incorporate them
in the column when-
ever possible. Readers
may email questions to
ToYourGoodHealth@med.

What are butter-flavored granules?


Dear Heloise: A few years
ago, my mother gave me
a book of recipes from her
church. Several of the reci-
pes call for butter-flavored
granules. What are they,
and where can I find them?
- L. King in California
Butter-flavored granules
are a powdered form of
butter that is fat-free,
gluten-free and good for
those watching calories.
The main ingredients
are natural butter flavor
(processed into a dry form),
maltodextrin (a natural
carbohydrate that comes
from corn) and salt.
You can find them in
most grocery stores in
the baking or spice aisle.
Keep the top sealed tightly,
and once opened, store in
the refrigerator. They are
good to keep on hand, as
they can be used for many
foods. Heloise
ES.: I love them! I some-
times mix some with non-
fat sour cream or yogurt to
top a baked potato. Or I use
them on steamed veggies,
in brown rice with veggies
and on hot oatmeal, among
a few other things.

Storing ketchup
Dear Readers: Did
you know that ketchup
has a high acid level and
so it doesn't need to be
refrigerated? Depending
on where you keep it and
the temperature, though,
its stability and quality
can be affected.
So, what do you do? You
can store ketchup in the
pantry, but manufactur-
ers recommend that you


Hints from Heloise

refrigerate it for the best
flavor and quality. The
same with mustard: You
don't have to refrigerate
it, but it is recommended.
- Heloise

Eating out
Dear Heloise: A year
ago, I decided to really
take care of myself.
Healthier food choices are
now a part of my life. A lot
of my meals are eaten in
restaurants. Here are some
tips I use when eating out:
Sauces and gravies "on
the side" or not at all.
Salad dressing on the
side.
Order food that is
broiled, steamed or roast-
ed. Anything fried is full of
fat grams and calories.
Red sauce instead of
white (usually cream!) for
pasta.
Corn tortillas instead
of flour, and whole black
beans instead of refried.
Steamed rice instead
of fried.
With these simple
changes, I still get to enjoy
eating out with friends and
family and know that I'm
eating as healthy as I can.
- Jessica G. in Tennessee

Woman in unhappy relationship MALLARD FILLMORE By Bruce Tinsley

should cut her losses and go VA


DEAR ABBY: I have
been with my fiance since
2006. We expected to be
married in 2008, but my
grandmother died a month
before my wedding, and
then he was arrested be-
cause of charges stemming
from a sexual relationship
he'd had with a 17-year-old
girl he had been counseling.
Since then, we have had
a daughter, but through it
all there has been cheating,
drugs, jail, no job, and
constant excuses about why
our sex life no longer exists.
We have also had physical
altercations, which he was
arrested for.
I am no longer happy
with this relationship. The
only reason I stay is because
of our children. I'm only 33
and don't want to live my
life in misery anymore, but
I will sacrifice my happi-
ness for my children. I am
confused and don't know
what to do. I'm just going
through the motions in life.
I work full time, coach my
son's soccer team and am
living with MS.
He does help somewhat,
but it would be better if he
would get a job. My mother
watches my kids while I am
working and after they get
out of school. He claims
because he doesn't have a
driver's license he can't get
a job. Really? How many
people in this world don't
drive and still have a job?
Please give me some advice.
I have reached my breaking
point. -DOING THE BEST
ICAN
DEAR DOINGTHE BEST
YOU CAN: You say you are
willing to sacrifice your
happiness with this loser for
your children. Why? You are
not married to him, and he
is emotionally neglectful,
physically abusive and
contributes nothing finan-
dcially. Admit to yourself that
the "romance" has been a
mistake, and as soon as it's
safe, get away from him. If
he ever finds a job, the state
will help you collect child
support, but if he doesn't,
you'll have one less mouth
to feed.
DEAR ABBY: My mom
insists on including my
ex-husband and his wife
at our family gatherings.
I have told her repeatedly
that it makes me very


DearAbby

uncomfortable, but she
even included them in the
gift exchange last Christmas.
What should I do? Not go?
My sister has already laid
a guilt trip on me. Must
I go and have Christmas
with my ex like we're
one big happy family? (If
we had been happy, we
would not have gotten
divorced.) What are your
thoughts on this? LIVING
IN DYSFUNCTION
JUNCTION
DEAR LIVING: If you and
your ex were married for
a long time, I can see why
your mother might consid-
er him still part of the family
and want to include him.
However, out of consider-
ation for your feelings, it
should be on a limited basis
-not every holiday. (Could
she be trying to punish you
because she blames you for
the divorce?)
Because it would make
you uncomfortable and
your mother knows it, make
plans to do something you
would enjoy. And please,
don't feel guilty if you do
- regardless of what your
sister says.
DEAR ABBY: What do
you say to your only son
who can't even call to tell
you he is getting married?
He posted it on Facebook,
and I was notified via a text
from my sister.
Our relationship isn't
the issue. He just doesn't
seem to be able to use his
phone for TALKING. Your
thoughts? OUTSIDE THE
LOOP IN OREGON
DEAR OUTSIDE THE
LOOP: Because your son
seems oblivious to the
fact that news of this kind
should be conveyed to the
immediate family personal-
ly rather than in a "bulle-
tin," EXPLAIN to him how it
made you feel to receive the
news the way you did. He
owes you an apology.


"Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would
not have you ignorant."- 1 Corinthians 12:1
The Lord never intended for His children to be
denied the gifts that He provided for them, nor for one
generation of people to be preferred above another:
God is no respecter of persons. All things are yours.

over and over is a method of brain training thatyou
can use to your advantage.Tell yourself the story

ness as usual and concentrate on making yourself


do this, though, until you take control and make
yourself happy.

and will have a high tolerance for those difficult
people no one else wants to deal with. You do real-
ize thatyou may be someone's only friend.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).When presented with
something new, usually your first instinct is to
approach. But every novelty is different. Some cause
the opposite reaction.

Slam bidding is the last frontier for
many players. It can be very difficult
to determine exactly when there are
12 tricks available for your side, and
excellent hand evaluation is often
required. We occasionally see an


auction that should result in prizes for
both partners. Sometimes that's a
booby prize, but grand awards for the
North-South pair today.
South jump-shifted at his second
turn to show game-forcing values,
then re-bid his hearts. North bid three
no trump in desperation and South
removed it to four hearts, feeling like
he had done an excellent job of
describing his hand a powerful
hand with primary hearts, secondary
clubs and too distributional to play in
three no trump. Good job!
North looked at his hand at this
point in the auction and realized what
treasures he held. Two pure aces and
a queen that looked like it was made
of gold! He could hardly pass four
hearts and still sleep at night. He
raised to five hearts and South didn't
need to be asked twice.
A small child could make a slam
on this hand. The challenge was to
bid it. Kudos to North-South.

The kids will be on winter break soon, likely needing a place to burn calories and expend bottled-up energy. Relatives will be arriving, as will the in-laws. The dogs will be chasing their tails after vacuuming the oors of dropped sugar cookies that seemed to have been soaked in Red Bull. The once 2,000 square feet of home now seems to be 500 square feet of Alice in Wonderland claustrophobia. Its time to step outside and breathe. Oscar Scherer State Park, off U.S. 41 in Osprey, is a beautiful, inexpensive place to escape the family or to bring the family. The 1,300-plus acres offer hiking trails of varied lengths, campgrounds, kayak/canoe rentals, wildlife watching, informational Nature Center and a lake for swimming (for those brave enough to risk being alligator bait). There are two main areas of the park and both should be explored. I recommend driving to the farthest parking area rst, which is near Lake Osprey and Nature Center. The Nature Center, or visitor center as its also called, offers an orientation of the park. There are three short videos that provide information about the park and its inhabitants. Theres a very interesting diorama of a gopher tortoises habitat, and the other critters that may be found in the hole as well. The Nature Center also sells souvenirs. In case you forgot to bring water, drinks are available from the vending machine. As you walk outside the Nature Center, take a quick hike on the trail that loops Osprey Lake. Keep an eye out for alligators, but more importantly, keep an ear out for birds who may be squawking or singing above your head. If its warm and youre so inclined, take a dip in the lake (I did not as I maintain a healthy respect/fear of alligators). Once you are done exploring this end of the park, drive back to the South Creek Picnic Area. This is where you can put in canoes/kayaks as well as stroll through the Lester Finley Trail. This is the easiest of the trails to navigate. It winds along the water, offering chances to hear sh jumping, birds talking and squirrels scrambling up trees. Bring a lunch as there are numerous picnic tables around the park. There also are playgrounds near both of the parking areas. There are a variety of trails offered at Oscar Scherer State Park. Here is some information on the six trails, as provided in the trail brochure handed to you at the Ranger Station: Yellow (5 miles for bicyclists and hikers): It is 5 miles of mainly level and sandy trails. It passes through mesic Spot wildlife at Oscar Scherer PUNTA GORDA Having checked out of their hotel before arriving at the Fort Wayne, Ind., Airport on Monday, Rachel Wallace and her three girls already knew their ight to Punta Gorda had been canceled. But it wasnt a problem, she said, because Allegiant Air promised on its website that passengers would be provided free hotel lodging for the night. And then it was a problem. As it turned out, airport cots were the only thing reserved for Wallaces children, ages 9, 7 and 5. And without carrying-around money for what was supposed to be a two-hour ight, Wallace was left to feed her kids cookies throughout the night. The next morning, a fellow weary traveler gave the Wallaces $20 for breakfast. Its been a long two days, Wallace said after landing at the Punta Gorda Airport around noon Tuesday. According to Allegiant ofcials, due to weather and stafng issues, two dozen ights were canceled over the holiday weekend mostly Monday ights rescheduled for Tuesday including four at the Punta Gorda Airport. From Naples to Venice, family and friends came to the airport many for a second time to pick up passengers whose long holiday weekend stretched even longer. Common complaints were shared about travelers missing a day of work and the inconvenience of passengers Travelers hit turbulenceBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERAllegiant cancels 4 flights at Punta Gorda AirportTRAVELERS | 2 SUN PHOTO BY ADAM KREGERBinks a 16-month-old bloodhound took part in his rst major search eort Sunday. The hound has been in service with the Charlotte County Sheris Oce for about three months. He and his handler, Deputy First Class John Mills, were called to assist the Collier County Sheris Oce with their search for an 80-year-old man, which ended with his discovery Monday.When an 80-year-old man was reported missing Sunday in North Naples, the Collier County Sheriffs Ofce called upon a 16-month-old for help. Binks, the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofces young bloodhound, and his handler, Deputy First Class John Mills, assisted dozens of authorities in the 27-hour search for George Searle. The elderly man had been missing since early Sunday, and was without needed medicine. Binks and Mills arrived to help about 12 hours after the man was believed to have left the area. Although the K-9 led his handler to a nearby marina rather than to the subject, whom deputies spotted unharmed under some hedges in a heavily shrubbed area Monday the hound got some much-needed real-world experience under his collar. It was his rst major search where the subject stayed in the area, Mills said. Hes very young. As he matures, Sheriffs hound gets paws wetBy ADAM KREGERSTAFF WRITERBINKS | 2PUNTA GORDA Long before the downtown area was buzzing with eateries, hotels and music venues, one restaurant was leading the pack. River City Grill in the heart of the citys downtown jumped onto the scene back when the area was a lot less social and a whole lot sleepier. In the decade since, the restaurant has weathered a natural disaster, a housing bust, and the longest economic downturn seen in this lifetime. Yet, through it all, River City Grill remained stalwart. When most restaurants and bars packed it up, River City kept going. Saturday, the popular eatery will celebrate its 10th River City 10 years laterBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITERRIVER CITY | 2 SUN PHOTO BY CHRISTY FEINBERGAn osprey takes ight at Oscar Scherer State Park in Sarasota County.

Our Town Page 2 C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Wednesday, December 4, 2013 FROM PAGE ONE anniversary from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. with a special menu and a fundraiser to benet the Punta Gorda Police Departments Do the Right Thing program. As he looks back on the past decade, River City owner Doug Amaral cant help but be excited for the future. Last year, Amaral bought out his former business partner to become the sole proprietor. The restaurant has partnered with Worden Farms to offer more farm-to-table menu specials. New upscale items have been added to the menu, including New England dry-packed scallops, lobsters and duck breast. And Amaral has started to rene his wine list to offer more upscale by-the-glass selections. Its all part of a larger vision he held before economic realities forced the restaurant to get lean and mean. Now, Amaral has his eyes rmly set on the future. A pioneer at heart, he saw the citys potential long before other restaurants and bars followed suit. Its that potential to which Amaral still clings. If you had been in this town prior to the hurricane, the energy was erce, he said. Real estate was selling; the restaurant was full. You could see this town was a little rose just ready to blossom into this beautiful little Florida town. It was just ready to roll. Hurricane Charleys ferocious impact in 2004 took the wind out of it, Amaral said. Still, he stuck with it. A seasoned restaurateur with an award-winning restaurant in Naples, Amaral is deeply loyal to his family, his friends and his business. In an industry known for high turnover, he has employ ees who have worked with him for decades. Its one of the secrets to his success. Im more proud of that than anything, he said. Ive been in Naples for 23 years, and I have people that have worked with me the whole 23 years. Here, Ive been here 10 years, and 75 per cent of the people have been with me eight years or longer. And thats pretty much unheard of in this industry. Im more proud of that than any dollar Ive ever made. I really am. I try to build a family here, Amaral said. I use the word family all the time, and I walk that walk. He is old school that way relationships, one-on-one interactions and face time are his modi operandi, especially when it comes to his customers. That connection with me makes a difference, he said. They can tell youre sincere. Its not about the almighty dollar. Its about the almighty person. People can look you in the eye and tell that you care. Thats what built my business. People knew that you care. Thats why Amaral chose to have a fundraiser during the restaurants anniversary bash. Half of all sales and the house half of a 50/50 drawing will be donated to Do the Right Thing. We started with it, and we will celebrate with it, he said. Were going back to our roots, but, at the same time, were excited about the future.Email: bbarbosa@sun-herald.com GOVERNMENT TODAYCode Enforcement, Board meeting, 9 a.m., 18500 Murdock Circle, Room 119, PC. 743-1238.

And there were critics of Allegiant specically for failing to notify people of the cancellations ahead of time. Its very frustrating, said Alison Price, who spent more than an hour on the phone Tuesday trying to conrm that the rescheduled ight had been, in fact, rescheduled. Making it more difcult was that Price was traveling by herself with two small children. She spent the morning walking around with a phone to her ear, said John Price, Alisons fatherin-law, whom she was visiting in Naples. Keep your ngers crossed, theyre not on board yet. The prices are great, but its a roll of the dice. James Parish, assistant airport director, said four scheduled ights at the Punta Gorda Airport were pushed back from Monday to Tuesday, citing Allegiants explanation that weather and crew scheduling were to blame. People get sick on holidays, Parish said. Airlines cancel ights and reschedule them. Unfortunately, it happens. Parish said work crews at the airport, which total about 40 personnel, were unaffected and operating as usual on Tuesday. However some folks affected by the delays were not as understanding. A family of seven, headed up by Helene and Bob Gruber of Cincinnati, were nally boarding their Lexington-bound, return ight on Tuesday after visiting Bonita Bay. Bob explained that family members, in two groups, also were delayed leaving Cincinnati, one for about an hour, and the other for ve hours. Thats three for three they missed, Bob said. Theyre short-staffed. Steve Yoder drove 74 miles from Avon Park, Fla., on Monday to pick up a friend ying in from Fort Wayne, then repeated the trek the next day. The problem is they dont notify you, said Yoder, who added that his friend, and his ride, also had a do-over in Fort Wayne. He had his ticket, he was at the airport and they said, The planes not going today, youll go tomorrow. Its not the rst time this has happened with Allegiant. Consequently, Allegiants rst-ever Cyber Monday Sale, offering deep discounts on selected ights and touted by one airline executive as its biggest sale ever, hit more than a little turbulence. In other Allegiant news, the low-cost airline also just announced seasonal service to two more destinations from Punta Gorda, starting in February 2014. In a busy expansion year with the latest additions of Portsmouth, N.H., near Boston, and Columbus, Ohio Allegiant Air now has nonstop service to 23 cities from the Punta Gorda Airport.Email: groberts@sun-herald.comTRAVELERSFROM PAGE 1 hell make more precise decisions. To be fair, authorities werent sure how Searle exited his big apartment building, so Binks may not have picked up a scent from the proper area to begin with. And wind played a factor, Mills said. But hes getting better at tracking people. The Florida Department of Corrections DeSoto Annex donated Binks to the Charlotte Sheriffs Ofce in May, when he was still a puppy. Since taking over for Justice the 8 12-year-old bloodhound who retired from the agency at the end of August the new K-9 had been called to action twice before Sunday, both times in North Port. In the rst case, Binks was tasked with tracking a missing juvenile. The hound picked up his scent and led Mills to the spot where the teen got into a car and left. In his second effort, Binks was brought in to nd a missing child. The mother had forgotten someone else was watching the kid, so there was no one actually missing for Binks to nd. So Binks most recent job was a new test for both the K-9 and Mills. A dog by himself is a dog, and a deputy by himself is a deputy, said Sgt. Duane Tucker, who oversees the Charlotte Countys K-9 Unit. The idea is to teach them to work together. Mills has trained Binks since the agency received the dog. Hes the rst bloodhound the deputy has handled. But Binks has good genes in 2009, his uncle, Max, found a missing hunter in the Everglades. Theyre denitely different than a patrol dog, said Mills, who also manages a 3-yearold Belgian Tervuren named Boba, and used to have a German shepherd. Binks is always happy, and more of a lets-go-get-em dog. The Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce is the closest agency to Collier County that still has a bloodhound in service. Im proud to have the bloodhound program, Tucker said. And Im proud of its success. Collier County author ities are also glad. Having a bloodhound available to us is very meaningful in situations such as the successful search-and-rescue effort involving Mr. Searle, Collier County Sheriffs Ofce spokeswoman Michelle Batten said. We appreciate the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofces quick response. Binks sole purpose is to track missing people. Members of Charlotte Countys K-9 Unit point out bloodhounds who have been tracking humans for centuries have many advantages over patrol dogs, like German shepherds. Bloodhounds are the only dog whose ndings are admissible in court, said Charlotte Sheriffs Cpl. Deryk Alexander, a former bloodhound handler for seven years. The hounds also dont bite a subject when they nd them, like other dogs used in searches are inclined to do. And they need only a couple of skin cells to pick up a scent. Furthermore, they can pick up scents after longer periods of time Alexander and Justice once found a missing subject after a lapse of almost 12 hours. Its just another great tool for us to use, Alexander said.Email: akreger@sun-herald.comBINKSFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY BRENDA BARBOSARiver City Grill in downtown Punta Gorda has weathered many storms, including Hurricane Charley, a global housing bust and the Great Recession.

The Sun /Wednesday, December 4, 2013 www.sunnewspapers.net C Our Town Page 3 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS To see the joy and wonder in a childs face on Christmas morning is one of the memorable pleasures of life. For many area families, that joy is made possible thanks only to the U.S. Postal Services mail carriers annual toy drive for Toys for Tots. Mail carriers throughout Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda and Englewood will be collecting new, unwrapped toys on their routes on Saturday. Theyll also accept the toys early if someone wants to be sure not to forget to put toys out. Its extra work for the mail carriers, but a labor of love. Its so much fun when all the carriers drive into the lot on Saturday and we see the toys everyone collected, said carrier Sharon Winesett, who is in charge of the toy drive for the area. Toys should be new and not wrapped, so organizers can see into what age category they fit. Carriers and certainly the families who benefit from the toys are grateful for all donations, but they usually receive far more stuffed animals than they can use. Better choices are dolls, cars and just about any other type of toy. Last year, local mail carriers collected about 5,000 toys. Throughout the Sun Coast district which runs from Daytona Beach to Naples and up to Tampa 300,000 toys were collected, said Alan Friedman, the districts toy drive coordinator. This year, though, getting enough toys is more difficult. We usually put a flier in mailboxes announcing the toy drive, just like we do for our annual food drive, Friedman said. But this year, with tight budgets at the Postal Service, were not allowed to print the fliers, so getting the word out is tough. Friedman actually started the mail carriers toy drive about eight years ago, modeling it after the very successful annual food drive. In 2011, people in the Sun Coast district generously donated more than a million toys, making it the largest donation to Toys for Tots. But last year, with the struggling economy, toy numbers were way down. The Marine Corps League, which or ganizes the Toys for Tots program, actually had to cancel some families who were on the list to receive toys. Without the fliers announcing the collection, Friedman worries that numbers will be even lower this year. Toys can be left at mailboxes or given directly to the carriers. Theyll also accept cash and checks made payable to Toys for Tots but give those directly to the carrier. Post offices in Englewood, Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte also have drop-off boxes for toys. Collecting toys on their routes is a way for the carriers to give back to the communities they serve, said Winesett, and theyre happy to do it. And on Christmas morning, those who donated toys can smile knowing theyve made a local childs day special.Mail carriers put stamp on toy driveBy BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGERSUN CORRESPONDENT PHOTO PROVIDEDMail carriers in Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda and Englewood will collect new, unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots on Saturday. 50452918 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 50458376 DIABETIC SHOES NEW BALANCE & MANY MORE If you are diabetic and have Medicare, Call: DR.
