Sarasota Jungle

Gardens delights

here are one-of-a-kind places
that likely could only exist in
Florida: The Shell Factory, Gator-
land, Linger Lodge.
The Sarasota
Jungle Gardens
should be on that
list.
This is another
Great place to take
V kids while they are
on winter break-
especially elementa-
ry school-aged kids.
"It's interesting
Christy for little ones," said
Roxanne Henkel of
FEINBERG Venice.
COLUMNIST The Sarasota
Jungle Gardens
opened on New Year's Eve in 1939.
Initially, it was just a botanical garden,
which still exists today.
"Some of our prized possessions
include the rare Australian nut tree, a
bunya bunya tree, the largest Norfolk
Island pine in Florida, bulrush, stran-
gler figs, royal palms, selloums, banana
trees, Peruvian apple cactus, staghorn
ferns and native red maples, oak trees
and bald cypress," according to the
gardens' website.
Take time to explore the gardens. A
map will be provided upon entry. There
are easy-to-navigate paths that weave
around animal exhibits, playgrounds,
waterfalls and other attractions. There
are plenty of benches scattered around,
as well, for those who want to take a
break, rest their feet, or simply enjoy
the view.
The famous bird shows were add-
ed in the 1970s, and they remain a
highlight today. Don't miss the Jungle
Bird Show, which takes place at noon
and 3 p.m. Show times, of course, are
subject to change, so check for any
updated times when you arrive. The
Jungle Bird Show is the one in which
you can see birds roller-skate, making
you feel a little clumsy if you are unable
to do so. Little kids, especially in the
preschool/kindergarten ages, seemed
to be mesmerized by the brightly
colored macaws as they interact with
the audience.
There are other non-bird shows
throughout the day as well.
The Reptile Encounter shows take
place at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. (again,
times are subject to change). Guests
are allowed to hold reptiles at the end
of the show. While I will always pass on
this opportunity, it may be an exciting
adventure for some, like 8-year-old
Brayden Baker.
Jen Baker of Byron, Ill., has been
visiting Southwest Florida since she
was a little kid, and now she brings her
children here. She recently brought
Brayden and her two other children,
ages 2 and 7, to the Sarasota Jungle
Gardens.
"Brayden, what was your favorite?"
Jen asked her oldest son.
"Holding a ball python," Brayden
said.
Those of us with a fear of being
bitten, strangled or shocked into
cardiac arrest can steer clear of the
reptile house and reptile show. There's
still plenty to do at the Sarasota Jungle
Gardens.
The gardens also offers aWild Life
Wonder Show at 2 p.m.: "Learn about
red-tailed hawks, kookaburras, owls,
skunks, hissing cockroaches and so
many more. The dynamics of this show
change frequently, and you never know
which animal will make an appear-
ance. We promise you'll be thoroughly

Hill gets life in prison


3 consecutive life sentences for Brotherton murderer


By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER
SARASOTA COUNTY- Charles Hill
is not getting out of prison anytime
soon.
The man who killed James
Brotherton of El Jobean on Nov. 21,
2011, was given three consecutive life
sentences Tuesday by an emotional
12th Circuit Judge Donna Padar Berlin,
who said Brotherton's dedication to his
family and his work ethic were a few of
the tragic factors that likely led to his
death.
Brotherton, 49, was sleeping in his


car in Sarasota when he
was forced at gunpoint
by Hill, 33, to withdraw
money from a Bank of
America ATM in Sarasota.
Hill would shoot and kill
Brotherton a short time
later, dumping his body
HILL in front of the Gulf Gate
Library. Brotherton was
sleeping in his car to be closer to his
job as a Sarasota County Area Transit
bus driver, family said, and authorities
later would discover that he had no
cash in his account when he died.
Hill eventually was arrested by

MURDOCK Seven-year-
old Dante Bloomfield of Port
Charlotte slips a socked foot
into a foot measure at the
Payless ShoeSource at the
Port Charlotte Town Center
mall and quietly waits for a
sticker. The Neil Armstrong
Elementary School student can
barely contain his excitement
at the thought of a new pair of
sneakers.
"You're a size 1 1/2," says the
sales associate with a smile, as
she writes the number down on
a sticker and hands it to him.
Sticker in hand, Dante skips
down a long aisle flanked
with children's shoes, eager to
begin his search. The delighted
look on his face soon turns to
dismay as Dante realizes all the
boys shoes are on the upper
shelves, 3 feet above his head.
By contrast, the girls shoes are


neatly arranged at eye level. He
looks at a pair of pink sneakers
with rainbow laces and frowns.
Turning to the reporter
standing next to him, he whis-
pers, "Excuse me, Miss. Can you
please help me?"
Dante was among 50 children
from the Boys & Girls Clubs of
Charlotte County Monday who
received a new pair of shoes
made possible by a grant from
the local Payless store. The
retailer awarded the nonprofit
a $4,000 grant in the form of
$20 gift cards that allowed 200
children this week to pick out
free footwear.
"It's especially nice because
the holidays are right around
the corner," Boys & Girls Clubs
program manager Jessica Pralle
said. "This might be the only
pair of shoes they get this year."

DUI crash


victims get


justice


By ADAM KREGER
STAFF WRITER

PUNTAGORDA- The
Sorgs Kirk, 63, and wife
Rebecca, 64 traveled
to Charlotte County from
Indianapolis recently with
one goal in mind they
wanted to see justice from
a serious accident three
years ago in which they
were struck by a drunken
driver in Englewood.
The driver and defen-
dant Rebecca Kaiser,
44, of Englewood-was
sentenced to 10 years
- two consecutive
five-year terms in
prison Tuesday by 20th
Judicial Circuit Judge
Amy Hawthorne at the
Charlotte County Justice
Center.
The couple felt Kaiser
got what she deserved.
But, more important,
they are glad other drivers


Scan feel a
little more
secure.
"The
roads may
be a little
safer now
for the
KAISER public,"
Rebecca
Sorg said after the hour-
long sentence hearing.
Her husband agreed.
"That's been our goal
since the beginning," Kirk
said.
The Sorgs lobbied in
open court for a maxi-
mum sentence for Kaiser.
Hawthorne handed it
down 10 years in prison
with a lifetime driver's
license suspension. In
addition to court and legal
fees, Kaiser also must pay
restitution to the Sorgs for
medical expenses, which

Super Boat


Grand Prix plans


sputtering


By GARY ROBERTS
STAFF WRITER

MURDOCK-
Concerned about
the lack of progress
in planning for the
Charlotte Harbor Super
Boat Grand Prix, county
commissioners on
Tuesday grilled the orga-
nizer about having yet to
nail down cost estimates
and revenue-producing
sponsorships that will
pay for needed services
such as transportation,
parking and public
safety.
"Here we are at the
11 th hour.... You should
have had all of this
done in September and
October, six months
before the event,"
Commissioner Chris
Constance said during


Tuesday's regular-
agenda meeting. "I still
have a really hard time
understanding how are
you going to pull this
off."
Commissioner Tricia
Duffy also worried that
the inaugural race, set
for April 12-13, 2014, is
rapidly approaching,
and much remains to be
done.
"It's getting close to
the race time. What are
you going to do?" Duffy
asked.
Through it all, Jerry
York, president of the
organizing group, was
adamant the show will
go on. He maintains that
the high-power boat rac-
es off Stump Pass State
Park and Englewood
Beach will draw 80,000

River City Grill celebrates 10 years


Saturday, River City
Grill celebrated 10 years
in business by donating
half its proceeds to the
Punta Gorda Police

The restaurant was
crammed with patrons
supporting the pro-

On River City's opening
night 10 years ago, a
percentage of the sales
that night went to DTRT
as well.

of Do the Right Thing, takes a moment to sit and chat with
Martha Bireda, Jill Shively and Louise Allen, all from the

Retiring flags with dignity


By AL HEMINGWAY
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Upon entering the
foyer of American
Legion Post 110 in Port
Charlotte, a visitor may
notice a large box with
a pair of white-gloved
hands handing a folded
American flag to anoth-
er pair of hands.
People instantly will
recognize the image
as a funeral where the
stars and stripes are
presented to the family
of a veteran as a token
of the country's appre-
ciation for the veteran's
military service.
The receptacle is
a drop-off box from
Kays-Ponger & Uselton
Funeral Homes and
Cremation Services for
used American flags.
The funeral home,
however, has taken that
patriotic gesture a step
further by offering a

A "Retired Flags Welcome" sign is located at all of the funeral


home's five locations.
flag retirement plan to
deceased honorably
discharged veterans.
It has partnered with
local veterans organiza-
tions to collect old and
tattered flags, and, at
the request of the fami-
ly, drapes the deceased
veteran in the national
banner, and cremate


the person in a "most
dignified manner."
The veteran's fam-
ily then is given a
Certificate of Flag
Retirement stating that
their loved one was cre-
mated with the flag that
had served "its last and
final duty of respect."
Stacy Jones,


I"


'it


community relations
director for the funeral
home, said it has been
collecting old flags
for about five years
at drop-off boxes in
various locations.
"We have boxes
in American Legion
Posts 110 and 103,
Ace Hardware in
Englewood, and the
Englewood Elks," she
said. "People can also
bring them to any one
of our five locations
in Port Charlotte,
Punta Gorda, Venice,
Lemon Bay and Gulf
Pines Memorial Park
in Englewood. Anyone
who has a retail outlet
in a high-traffic area
can contact me, as well,
about placing a drop
box there."
Jones said since the
program's inception, it
has taken in hundreds
of flags. The boxes,
made of corrugated
plastic and for indoor
use only, have been
a great method for
allowing individuals to
dispose of them there
as well.
"We are fortunate
that we own our own
crematorium," Jones
said. "Many funeral
homes do not and need
to use a third party, and
can't offer something
like this."
Former Punta
Gorda mayor Harvey
Goldberg, who drops
off flags at the funeral
home's FEast Marion


Avenue location, said it
is a great way to honor
and respect a deceased
veteran and the U.S.
flag at the same time.
"As a ... Marine, I let
people know about this
around the commu-
nity," he said. "Many
people don't realize
that they do this."


"Once people realize
what we do with the
flags, they tell their
family and friends,"
Jones added. "It's our
commitment to our
nation's veterans and to
the flag of our country."

ON CHARLOTTE
HARBOR -Twenty-one
sailors from four countries
competed in Day One

on the harbor.
The regatta features
disabled and able-bodied
sailors competing in the

Racing continues today

forecast calling for even
stronger winds than
Tuesday's 10-15 knots.
The event is being
staged by the Charlotte

is one of two 2.4mR
regattas scheduled for
this week. After a day off

HILL
FROM PAGE 1

In what amounted to
a final statement on the
life of James Brotherton,
Hugh recounted his days
as a child, his ascension
into adulthood, and the
qualities that defined
him as a man and a
member of the commu-
nity in good standing.
Hugh also fell to tears
as he told the court the
anguish he felt when
he first heard of James'
death; Hugh said he was
huddled in a deer blind
in northern Michigan at
the time, and when word
of James' demise reached
him he almost fainted.
But, instead, got himself
together and drove 17
hours straight from
Michigan to Florida in
order to identify the body
of his sixth eldest child.
Hugh spent the
better part of Tuesday
afternoon standing out
in front of the Sarasota
courthouse, handing
out free copies of James'

At times, Hugh direct-

also looked directly at
Hill, who did nothing
more than stare straight
ahead as Hugh begged
the court to put him
away for life.

I'm not half the man

experienced another
tragedy this year, when
sibling Hugh Jr., the
eldest of 10 brothers and
sisters, suffered a fatal
stroke on Nov. 21. It was
two years and 10 days
after James was shot and
killed by Hill.
Attorneys for Hill,
who was found guilty of
James' murder by a jury
on Oct. 11 after seven
hours of deliberation,
said they likely would
appeal the decision,
but gave no timetable
for when the appeal
would be filed. Hill is not
eligible for parole.
Hill previously waived
his right to a mitigation
hearing, a decision that
Berlin found him compe-
tent to make. Mitigation
hearings use family
and medical history to
help inform the judge's
sentencing.
State prosecutors
decided in September to
not seek the death penal-
ty against Hill and pursue
life in prison instead.

least 300 businesses, he
said few checks have been
forthcoming, noting that,
for many, April's event will
come out of next year's
fiscal budget. To date,
merchants have pledged
$38,000 in support, most
of which will be realized
after Jan. 1, he said.
"There's really been no
significant movement
on sponsorships," York
acknowledged.

could be $50,000 or more.
On Nov. 1, 2010, the
Sorgs were traveling
home from a relative's
house in Englewood (the
Sorgs also have a home
in Englewood). It was
just about midnight; the
Sorgs had stayed up late
to watch the Indianapolis
Colts defeat the Houston
Texans on Monday night
football.
As they were traveling
eastbound on State Road
776 near Point of Pines
Road, a 2002 Pontiac
crossed from the west-
bound lane into their
lane, according to the
Florida Highway Patrol's
crash report. The Sorgs
were T-boned at around
50 miles per hour, accord-
ing to authorities, and
they spun into a ditch.
Kirk, who was driving,
briefly was knocked
unconscious. He also suf-
fered a broken pelvis and


skies and a steady breeze
out of the south-south-
west. Bjornar Erikstad of
Norway holds the overall
lead after the first day of
racing, with Allan Leibel
of Canada in second after
winning the final two rac-
es of the day. Millar finds
himself in third place
despite starting strong
with a win in the first race,
while Pascoe stands in
fourth place with a pair of


Still, commissioners
pressed York on not having
more signed contracts.
Constance said the county
has provided $63,000 to
event organizers, including
$40,000 for staff pay and
expenses. Yet organizers
have raised only $5,600
cash in hand so far.
Moreover, Charlotte
County has committed to
paying $80,000 to Super
Boat International, which
is handling all the offshore
permitting and other
issues for the race. Already
$10,000 has been paid,
with $39,000 due March 2,
and another $31,000 on
March 27.
"I'm reviewing the
books and, I have to say,
I'm a little bit unsettled,"
said Constance, the lone
naysayer when the com-
mission voted to allocate
up to $250,000 over two
years for the boat race.
"That's a red flag for me."
York explained that,
in talking with other
promoters of large events,
financial support tends
to come in at the last
minute.
In addition, he said
estimated expenses are
rising, with Stump Pass
State Park asking for
"thousands of dollars" to

a crushed hip. Rebecca
Sorg broke her ankle and
nearly lost her foot, she
said. She still has trouble
walking on her right leg,
which had to be repaired
with a rod and 13 screws.
Kaiser was convicted
by a jury in October of
two counts of DUI with
serious bodily injury. A
toxicology report shows
Kaiser's percentage of
blood alcohol was 0.165
at the time of the crash -
more than twice Florida's
legal limit of 0.08.
Rebecca Sorg limped to
the witness stand during
Tuesday's sentencing to
address Kaiser.
"I hate the decision you
made," she said. "But I
don't hate you."
However the victim
pointed out she is scared
to drive at times, and the
pain reminds her of the
wreck every day.
Kirk, a football coach
for nearly four decades,
used the sport as an
analogy. He said when
someone makes a mistake
in football, it's not so bad

allow use of its 50 parking
spaces.
"The cost came in a lot
higher than what we had
anticipated," York said.
Similarly, trash-removal
bids were more than
expected, he said.
Meanwhile, he also is
trying to line up enough
parking to handle the
crowds. The boat race and
events will be promoted
as a "no-parking event"
on Manasota Key, with
visitors being bused
from parking lots in the
Englewood area.
After sending out about
50 letters to residents, York
said nine were willing to
allow their driveways for
event parking. Overall,
about half of the property
owners contacted did not
respond.
In part, York blamed
bad publicity for the
event's slow start, saying
potential supporters
are waiting to see how
it all comes together
before making a financial
commitment.
"Negative newspaper
reports make it more
difficult for us to get spon-
sorships," York said. "It
hurts on the sponsorship
level a lot."

because the consequence
maybe only a 15-yard
penalty. When someone
makes a mistake in life, he
went on, it could be fatal.
"We're all responsible
for our actions," Kirk said.
"And those actions affect
other people."
Assistant State Attorney
Martina Hedvicek asked
Kaiser if she was think-
ing about her kids and
grandkids when she was
drinking and driving.
The defendant, who was
crying, quietly said no.
Kaiser apologized directly
to the victims.
Defense attorney Ben
Abdulnour argued the
maximum sentence
was too harsh, claiming
Kaiser can't make enough
money to pay the Sorgs
if she is in jail. He said it
was a "cruel twist of fate"
that this DUI resulted in a
serious crash.
Hawthorne responded
that the "cruel twist of
fate" could have resulted
in death.

CONVICTED KILLER WON'T GO BACK TO PRISON
Convicted killer Michael Canfield, 40, will not face additional prison time after violating his probation.
Assistant State Attorney Jillian Kuykendall asked 20th Judicial Circuit Judge Amy Hawthorne at the Char-
lotte County Justice Center Tuesday to consider sentencing Canfield to 15 years in prison the maximum
penalty for violating probation stemming from his 2008 manslaughter conviction.
Canfield received seven years in prison less about three years time served for the 2005 death
of his girlfriend, Christine Wernett, 40, at her Port Charlotte home. Canfield was released from the Moore
Haven Correctional Facility in September 2011, and was subject to 10 years of probation.
He was arrested July 25 and had been held at the Charlotte County Jail since after a drug test
from his probation officer came back positive for marijuana.
Canfield told Hawthorne in court Tuesday it was a one-time"stupid mistake."
His attorney, Timothy Fitzgerald, introduced "findings of fact"from Canfield's manslaughter case to argue
15 additional years of prison time was unjust.
Fitzgerald pointed out Wernett had shot herself in the face, but even thought the shot later would
have been fatal she didn't die right away. Only then did Canfield shoot her again to put her out of her
misery, he said.
Although he avoided going back to prison, Hawthorne ordered that his probation be modified to include
drug-offender conditions.
Canfield will have a curfew from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. and can't leave his county (Palm Beach). He also will
be subject to drug treatment and evaluation, and mental health evaluation. He also will be drug tested
more often than once a month, as he was previously.
"I'm really hoping to get out and have another chance at my life," Canfield told the court.
He is trying to open a tattoo parlor near West Palm Beach.

Local postmaster maintaining


family'business'


By BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Although Steve Bernier had served
as interim postmaster for Punta Gorda
and Port Charlotte since Jan. 1, he had
to compete for the actual job along
with 30 other applicants from around
the country, submitting his resume
and discussing his job
performance.
In the end, though,
S Bernier's long postal career
I and accomplishments
earned him the job, which
became official Nov. 5.
Bernier began as a part-
BERNIER time, flexible letter carrier
in Portland, Maine, in 1986.
In 1994, he was promoted to supervisor
of customer service at that location. In
2002, he escaped Maine's long winters
by moving to Panama City, Fla., as
supervisor, and in 2005 was promoted to
manager of customer service there.
He transferred to the Sun Coast dis-
trict in 2006 when his wife, Sherry Jude,
took the job of postmaster in Osprey.
Sherry's family includes a long line of
postmasters, so together she and Steve
are maintaining the family business -
when they aren't playing golf.
"I guess you could say the post office
is in our blood," Bernier said.
As postmaster, Bernier has some tips
for stress-free holiday mailing.
Don't procrastinate. But if you
must, be sure to get letters and first
class packages in the mail by Dec. 20,
and Priority Mail by Dec. 21. After that,
Express Mail will get packages delivered
overnight in most locations.


Avoid heavy traffic times. Monday
mornings, early morning and lunch
time are the busiest, along with the end
of day when people drop off work mail.
Be prepared. Have address labels
filled out and your money ready so the
lines go faster for everyone.
Examine the box. Boxes marked
with liquor, bleach or chemicals can't be
mailed even if the contents are differ-
ent. Scratch off the markings so they're
not legible.
Use 24-hour kiosks. These self-serve
spots are open even when the post
office is closed.
"They're touch screen and self-ex-
planatory, and you use your credit or
debit card for postage and drop the
package right there. Mail your packages
right after late-night shopping or come
in on a Sunday," Bernier said.
Mail online. If you have a computer,
printer, credit card and scale, you have
a post office. Use the Priority Mail flat
boxes and you don't even need the
scale. If it fits in the box, it ships for one
price. Drop the box at the post office or
arrange a free carrier pickup online.
Use Office Depot. It is a certified
USPS shipper for the second year. That
means it doesn't charge any more than
the post office for packages or stamps.
Secure valuables. Mail gift cards in a
padded envelope, and never mail cash.
Buy Forever stamps. They can be
used for postage even when prices go
up, with no added postage needed.
After getting everyone through the
holidays, Bernier looks forward to
meeting customers and working with
businesses to create cost-effective
mailings.


Punta Gorda's chilly history


id you know Punta
Gorda had three ice
plants over time in
its early history? Mechan-
ical refrigeration first was
proposed by Dr. John Gor-
rie of Apalachicola, Fla.
Specializing in tropical
diseases, he believed cool
air helped his patients.
Gorrie was granted a
patent in May 1851 for
his ice-making machine,
but, unable to get financ-
ing for its manufacture,
died penniless in 1855.
However by the time Isaac
Trabue platted the town
that became Punta Gorda,
improvements had been
made to Gorrie's idea,
resulting in the ability to
mass-produce ice.
Trabue built the town's
first ice plant in 1891.
Located on both sides
of Berry Street, between
Virginia and Olympia
avenues, the Ice Factory
Company plant was
steam-driven and could
produce 15 tons per day. A
long chute to the bayfront
allowed easy movement
of ice to waiting boats,
and Henry Plant's railroad
passed through the com-
plex on its way to the Long
Dock. Readily available ice
and the railroad opened
up a northern fresh fish
market, dramatically
changing the local fishing
industry. Being the only
game in town, though,
Trabue's company dictat-
ed prices and operated
only during the fishing
season. Consequently, it
was just a matter of time
before competition came
to the growing settlement.
In June 1895, local


businessmen organized
The Punta Gorda Ice and
Power Company. Its plant,
built at the corner of King
Street (U.S. 41 north) and
Virginia Avenue, could
produce ice more eco-
nomically using compres-
sors powered by electric
motors rather than steam,
and had a daily capacity
of 25 tons. It also provided
ice year-round to appre-
ciative townsfolk. By 1897,
due to competition and a
dispute with Henry Plant,
resulting in the removal
of track running through
Trabue's complex to the
Long Dock, the Ice Factory
Company ceased produc-
tion. Track leading to the
depot, Hotel Punta Gorda
and Plant's new dock,
though, remained on King
Street, so the railroad,
along with a growing
population, kept Punta
Gorda Ice and Power in
business. In fact, the plant
operated into the early
1960s, and the building
still stands today.
Trabue tried once
again in 1902 when
he convinced a group
of Philadelphia in-
vestors to join him
in the Consolidated
Ice Manufacturing,
Refrigeration and Fish
Company. Their plan was

'Christmas Showcase'

to furnish cheaper ice to
fishermen and process
"trash fish" into fertil-
izer. With that in mind,
Consolidated constructed
a huge four-boiler ice
factory on Trabue's old
site, and a four-story
fertilizer plant at the foot
of Berry Street, about
where the Punta Gorda
Boat Club is located
now. A portion of the ice
plant's foundation is still
evident on a vacant lot at
the corner of Berry and
Olympia, but you've got to
look for it. And I remem-
ber as a youngster playing
on the beach among the
fertilizer plant's large rock
foundation pylons, long
since buried.
However, by the time
construction was com-
pleted, declining catches
rendered the operation
of either impractical,
and neither went into
production. In a test run,
though, three, 150-ton
blocks of ice, about 5,000
cubic feet each, were
produced. Placed on a
vacant lot, it's said they
took three months to melt.
It must have been quite
the financial disaster,
since, when constructed,
Consolidated's plant was
claimed to be the largest
plate ice factory east of
the Mississippi.

Gorda's ice plants.
Thank you to everyone
who made our annual

I OUR VIEW

Holiday charities

make last call

for helping hand

OUR POSITION: There are still a
number of needs in our communi-
ties as Christmas draws near
The red kettles and
bell-ringers in front of area
businesses might be the
most obvious reminder of how
the spirit of the season calls for
giving to others. But, while those
kind volunteers are collecting for
a good cause, there are several
other organizations and groups
that are looking to fill Christmas
wishes as well.
As it is throughout the year
when it comes to charitable
giving, the economy and unem-
ployment are having an impact
on holiday donations. And, while
many do not have the means to
give as they might have in the
past, the list of those in need
seemingly continues to grow
longer each year.
It's tough going to the public
and asking for money or gifts. Just
ask members of any charitable
organization how true that is. Yet,
hundreds of volunteers through-
out our communities take time
each year to collect toys, cook
food and go out of their way to
make the holidays a little brighter
for families and children who may
be a little worse off than others.
There is a great sense of accom-
plishment we're sure when you are
able to deliver toys to needy kids
or offer a good meal to a family
that is living day-to-day.
So, as you finish up your holiday
shopping, we encourage you to
take one more look at your budget
and try to find a little extra to
donate to one of several charities
that are wrapping up their collec-
tions this year.
It may be a toy; it could be
presents for a lonely senior citizen
or it could be a cash donation that
can put a little more cheer in a
family's Christmas.
Here are some groups and
organizations accepting aid:
North Port Social Service
Division, 941-429-3700 is collect-
ing food for families and toys and
other items for kids. They also
have an adopt-a-family program.
To get more information ask for
Zulma Solero.
Marine Corps League
Detachment 948 of North Port
Toys for Tots is partnering with
Social Services to collect toys.
North Port Salvation Army,
941-240-5108.
Sun newspapers Salvation
Army Angel Tree bicycles for kids
program. Nathan Lane is raising
money for 40 bikes. Friday is the
deadline to call Nathan at (941)
206-1138 or bring a donation in
to the Charlotte Harbor office,
23170 Harborview Road, Charlotte
Harbor.
You can support some kids
that need help at the Boys and
Girls Clubs of Charlotte County at
(http://www.bgcofcc.org/
ways-of-giving/donate-now) -
great futures start there.
Toys 4 Englewood and Grove
City Community Post Office Grove
City Christmas is planned from
7 p.m.-midnight Saturday at
Junior's Cabaret 2643 Placida Rd.
Grove City. The fundraiser is for
anyone over 21 years of age.
Kids' Needs of Englewood is
collecting toys for the holidays.
Visit www.kidsneedsenglewood.
org. To volunteer or contact Kids'
Needs, email kidsneedsenglewood@
yahoo.com.
DeSoto County Toys for Tots
is still collecting. For information
call Bob Grinis 863-491-0202 or
863-558-2415. Drop-off boxes are
in many area businesses.
Arcadia Center for the Needy,
161 S. Orange Ave. c/o Marty Dow.

We recognize all these organi-
zations and others we may have
missed, including area churches,
for all they do each holiday season.


LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

Explanation sounds
like funny business

Editor:
We are expected to believe
many things that are just plain
ridiculous, and apparently, we
will.
The latest, "I can't believe
you said that," comes, once
again from Jay Carney, presi-
dential press secretary.
There are a recorded list
of 277 presidential one-
on-one meetings with key
government officials. There is
but one meeting listed with
Kathleen Sebelius. When
questioned about this, Carney
indicated that there were
more meetings but they were
"secret."
Let's examine this premise.
First, what would have been
so much more sensitive in
discussion with Sebelius than
with his other key advisors
like the National Security
Secretary or Homeland
Security? Second, assuming
secret meetings (which is
quite a stretch) why did they
need to be secret?
Both possible scenarios
are troublesome. The most
likely, that there truly were no
meetings, indicates a lack of
involvement and leadership of
the biggest social experiment
of our lifetime. No meetings
translates to no culpability.
The second possibility, that
there were in fact secret
meetings, indicates a desire or
need to deceive.
A little common sense
will tell us that this entire
explanation smacks of funny
business. Why are we being
lied to? Ask yourselves that.

Editor:
I have been reading the on-
going tirades against assault
rifles and high-capacity clips.
I am finding it hard to really
believe there are that many
absolute morons living in this
country. I mean, come on
folks, really?
All you can think of is trying
to ban the lawful sale and
manufacture of these types
of rifles? How can you be that
naive?
There are already millions
of these types of rifles spread
all over the country, and clips


that hold up to 40-50-60
rounds of ammunition, drum-
type magazines that hold
75 rounds.
Passing any laws making
possession of these illegal
will create a whole new type
of felonious people, as I
assure you, no one is about to
march down and turn in their
collectibles, their target rifles,
their exhibition-type weap-
ons, and in the case of some
veterans, their reminders of
how awful war can truly be.
The "Sandy Hook slayer"
could just as easily have
done the same damage with
a hunting rifle and a pocket
full of five-round clips, or a
cylinder of poisonous gas, or
any number of other types
of weapons which I will not
speculate on for fear of giving
any other sickos new ideas.
Placing armed guards
in plain clothes is the only
method that makes any sense
to me. We need metal detec-
tors at the doors, as in courts.
What message does this send
our kids? We love you and
want to protect you. Egad,
horrors.

him.

Need to be saved
from communists

Editor:
I was disappointed by a
letter from a veteran who was
disgusted by letters calling for
President Obama's impeach-
ment due to the faulty website
and compared it to the Iraq
War and deaths that resulted.
I am proud of all veterans
and those serving during the
Iraq War joined voluntarily.
They are so special, they
chose to defend our country.
President Bush did not cause
the Iraq War; it was not his
fault that every country in the
world believed Saddam had
weapons of mass destruction.
The negative comments
regarding President Obama
is due to Obama's decisions.
He is the one that has let
America down. It is during
his time in office that no aid
was sent during the Benghazi
attack; Fast & Furious and
the IRS scandal happened.
Now Obama has put in place
Obamacare leading us into a
socialist nation. What has the
government ever handled well
that we should now trust them
with our health care?
Some Democrats are finally
speaking out about the health
care debacle. However, they
have let President Obama use
his executive powers to make
laws when that power belongs
to Congress.
Today, we have more people
taking a handout than ever
before. Could that be why
they voted Obama in for a
second term? I hope and pray
all Americans wake up and put
more Republicans in Congress
in the next election. We need to
be saved from the socialist or
communist government that
appears to be taking place today.

Government driving
wage scale higher

Editor:
A true story that explains so
much.
Back in 1984,1 ran a business
which employed people in
Charlotte County. I paid them a
competitive wage for the area.
One day, a truck driver/me-
chanic came to me to tender
his notice. I hated to lose him
and asked if there was anything
I could do to keep him. He said
he doubted that I could match
the terms offered of a huge pay
increase, a 401(K) and health
insurance. In those days the
pay was $6 an hour over the
prevailing rate. Needless to say,
we said goodbye at the end
of his two weeks. He under-
stood that I couldn't pay that
much and I understood that
he couldn't turn down such a
lucrative offer.
The new employer? Sarasota
County Area Transit. And you
wonder why pension funds are in
trouble? Because there is no need
to operate at a profit (as I had to).
And because the taxpayers subsi-
dize the operation, governments
can ruin the market without
consequence. When they start
running at a deficit, taxpayers
have to bail them out again.
The promise made to my
employee would be a broken
one if not for the fact that the
government will simply charge
the taxpayer or cut their ser-
vices, to meet the obligation or
eventually file for bankruptcy
like Detroit just did.

Jascomb joins county staff as ombudsman


I 'd like to introduce
our new permit-
ting/development
ombudsman in the
community develop-
ment department, Don
Jascomb. This special
position is intended
to assist with custom-
er-service type issues
relating to the permit-
ting and land develop-
ment processes and rec-
ommend improvements
to those processes. The
ombudsman is also here
to help with outreach to
keep the residents and
development communi-
ty up-to-date on things
that are happening in
the community devel-
opment department.
The Charlotte County
ombudsman is an advo-
cate or problem solver
that helps facilitate
various types of permits
or permit approvals
for what can often be
complex regulatory
issues. This means that


when the manager iden-
tifies an issue that the
ombudsman can help
solve, he is assigned to
the task of research-
ing the situation and
facilitating a solution
to the issue. This can
include anything from a
backyard storage sheds,
swimming pools, pool
cages, fences, and tree
removal to single family
and commercial build-
ing permits or large-
scale development. If
assigned to the ombuds-
man, he will assemble
an in-house team of
staff experts whenever
needed in community


development to help
solve the problem.
Don is originally from
the Atlanta area and
moved to southwest
Florida two years ago.
He has a background in
city/county planning
and was the develop-
ment division director
in a suburban Atlanta
county for 14 years.
He has extensive expe-
rience with resolving
customer service com-
plaints, implementing
new land development
and building regula-
tions, implementing
customer service
improvements and edu-
cating the public about
regulations. Please join
me in welcoming Don
Jascomb.

Pancake
breakfasts
For 15 years Charlotte
County Fire/EMS has
held these wonderful


holiday events, wel-
coming the community
into the firehouses for
firehouse and apparatus
tours, fire safety educa-
tion, and a great social
time filled with fun and
excitement. A pancake
breakfast starts at 9 a.m.
with sausage and pan-
cake fixings, and Santa
arrives on a fire engine.
Breakfast ends when the
food is gone but Santa
and his elves are guar-
anteed to stay until each
and every child has the
opportunity to talk with
Santa. Charlotte County
Fire/EMS department is
very fortunate to have
Englewood Community
Hospital and Fawcett
Memorial Hospital
sponsor these events.
This year's breakfasts
are from 9 a.m. to
11 a.m. on two different
days. On Dec. 20 the
event will be held at
Charlotte County Fire/
EMS Station 4, 13600


Marathon Boulevard in
Gulf Cove. The second
breakfast is Dec. 23 at
Charlotte County Fire/
EMS Station 12, 2001
Luther Road, Deep
Creek. Reservations
are needed for both
events. Please call
Charlotte County Fire/
EMS Headquarters at

Lot mowing
In an effort to reduce
administrative costs and
delinquencies, the city's
undeveloped (vacant) lot
mowing program bill will
be placed on the prop-
erty tax rolls for FY 2015.
Currently, the city sends
invoices to property
owners of undeveloped
lots who use the city's
contractor for lot mow-
ing services and places
liens on those properties
with delinquencies. By
transferring the process
to the annual property
tax bill as a non ad valor-
em assessment/fee, simi-
lar to canal maintenance
assessments, program
administration is more
efficient and delinquen-
cies will be reduced
since payments will be
made as part of one's


property tax statement.
Property owners should
be receiving information
about the billing process
change in the February/
March time frame.
Property owners will still
be given the opportunity
to opt out of the city's
program and handle the
mowing responsibility
on their own.
In another mowing-
related matter, City
Council approved the
revised rightofway
mowing program for the
remaining areas of the
city outside of the special
residential overlay. Other
than U.S. 41 and U.S. 17
(under state mainte-
nance contract), deep
ditches and city-owned
property, it will be up to
the property owner to
mow their rightofway.
Notification will be given
to those owners not
mowing their area, and
the plan will be
fully implemented by
March 1, 2014.

Air Force nurse served in bases around the world


By DON MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Mary Chalifour joined
the Air Force Nursing
Corps on a whim for three
years in 1958. She and
a friend with whom she
graduated from nursing
college in North Carolina
decided to give the service
a try. Twenty years later,
she retired as a lieutenant
colonel in charge of all the
nurses at a base hospital at
Warner Robins, Ga.
"My girlfriend and I
joined the Air Force's
Nursing Corps on Oct. 16,
1958. After basic, I was sent
on my first assignment to
Wilford Hall Medical Center
in San Antonio, Texas. At
the time, it was the largest
Air Force base hospital in
the world with 1,000 beds,"
said Chalifour, 78, who now
lives in Port Charlotte.
"Initially, my first job was
in the orthopedic ward.
Later I was transferred to
a surgical ward. I spent
the next two years there
treating a lot of people
who were involved in auto
accidents," she said. "We
had this one nurse that
was involved in a head-on
collision returning home
from work one night. It was
in a remote area and she
wasn't found for an hour
after the accident.
"We worked on her
for weeks to improve
her medical condition. A
month or so later, she was
taken out of intensive care
and moved into the regular
ward to recover some
more. She recovered to
the point where she could
go back home, but she
wasn't ever able to return
to nursing.
"From January 1961
to January 1963,1 was
assigned to Tachikawa Air
Force Base outside Tokyo,
Japan. I worked primarily
in a female ward. We took
care of a lot of Japanese
women who had become
the wives of American
servicemen. A lot of these
women had TB (tubercu-
losis). We did a lot of lung
surgery," she remembered.
"Before I left Tachikawa
in 1963, we were starting to
get wounded soldiers from
Vietnam. Our job was to
triage these patients. Then
they would be sent to an
Army or a Navy hospital in
Japan.
"When I came back to
the states, I was assigned
to Moody Air Force Base
inValdosta, Ga. I started
out there on the medical
ward. By this time I made
captain. I had been in the
service for 10 years.
"It was there I met my
husband, Lee Chalifour.
He was a master sergeant
in the Air Force. He had
served as a tail gunner in
a B-24 'Liberator' four-en-
gine bomber in (the)
Pacific duringWorldWar II.
"We were on the verge
of getting married, much
to the displeasure of the
base hospital commander.
He wanted to separate us
because he didn't think
officers should marry
enlisted men," she said.
"I called my boss and she
called the chief nurse of


the Air Force who had
been my chief nurse when
I worked at Tachikawa."
The couple were
assigned to Tachikawa,
where they got married
in 1967. It was Chalifour's
second tour there.
"I went to Japan 45
days before Lee. Our dog
got shipped, our car got
shipped, and I left to go
over there. By the time
he arrived, I had found a
place for us to live on base,
had furniture in the house
and food in the fridge,"
she said. "One of the
nurses I worked with gave
me the keys to her black
Thunderbird so I could
pick him up in style when
he flew in from the states.
"By this time we were
starting to get a lot of
wounded servicemen from
the war. Many of these
patients were not only
wounded, but they were
suffering from dengue fe-
ver. It's a very bad bacterial
infection that can cause
brain damage and kill you.
"We got this 18-year-old
soldier who was very ill
with dengue fever. He
was (in a coma) when he
arrived. We did an awful lot
of work on him to improve
his condition. When we
sent him back to the states,
he was able to walk, talk
and feed himself. The
last I heard of him he was
attempting to go to college.
He had made that much
progress.
"When I left Japan in
September 1968,1 was
assigned to Almtus Air
Force Base in Altus, Okla.
My primary assignment
there was to work in a
medical ward. It was there
I requested an opportunity
to go to chief nurses school
at Sheppard Air Force
Base in Texas. I got the
assignment.
"In July 1970,1 started
chief nurses school. It was
a very intensive, six-month
course. There were 10 of
us in the class; we were all
majors. When the course
was over in November
1970,1 was selected the
outstanding honor gradu-
ate with a GPA of 98.6.
"I went to Bitburg,
Germany, after graduating.
...We were both relocated
there," she said. "I became
the chief nurse of the 36th
Tactical Medical Unit at
Bitburg Air Force Base."
In 1974, she and Lee
returned to the U.S., and
they went back to Wilford
Hall Hospital in San
Antonio. This was her first
assignment 16 years earlier
when she was a young
second lieutenant.
"My job was charge
nurse in the emergency
room of the 1,000-bed
hospital that serviced both
military and civilians in the
San Antonio area. There
were two cases I recall
well that I was involved in
during my second tour at
Wilford Hall.
"We had this young
soldier who got high on
something and came into
the emergency room with
a gun in his hand. He was
ready to blast us all away,"
Chalifour said. "We man-
aged to calm him down

"We sedated him and
returned him to his unit
back at the base. Later, I
learned he was shipped
back to Saudi Arabia in
disgrace because of the
Emergency Room incident.
We learned later he was ex-
ecuted because of his bad
behavior on the Air Force
base. He had disgraced the
royal family. Things like that
happen in the Far East,"
she explained.
By this time Chalifour
was a lieutenant colonel
in the Air Force Nursing
Corps. Her last two years
in the service were spent
beginning in 1976 as chief
nurse at a 150-bed hospital
atWarner Robins Air Force
Base in Georgia.

earlier after returning from
their tour in Germany.
Together, the couple have
a combined total of 50
years serving their country
in the military.
"We have lived in this
house since November
1978, and we've enjoyed
every bit of our retirement,"
Chalifour said with a smile.

WASHINGTON Shedding
gridlock, key members of Congress
reached a modest budget agreement
Tuesday to restore about $63 billion
in automatic spending cuts from
programs ranging from parks to the
Pentagon.
The spending increases would be
offset by a variety of increased fees
and other provisions elsewhere in
the budget totaling about $85 billion
over a decade, leaving enough for
a largely symbolic cut of about
$23 billion in the nation's debt, now
$17 trillion and growing.
Federal workers, retired members


of the military under age 62, airline
travelers and health care providers
who treat Medicare patients would
bear much of the cost.
The budget deal was one of a few
major measures left on Congress'
to-do list near the end of a bruising
year that has produced a partial
government shutdown, a flirtation
with a first-ever federal default
and gridlock on President Barack
Obama's agenda.
In a blow to Democrats, the
agreement announced by Sen. Patty
Murray, D-Wash., and Paul Ryan,
R-Wis., omitted an extension of
benefits for workers unemployed

Amid cheers and song for

Barack Obama energized
tens of thousands of spec-

with a plea for the world to

Obama's eulogy was the
rhetorical highlight of a

South Africans celebrated
Mandela's life with singing
and dancing, often during
dignitaries' speeches.
They also booed their own
president and were chided
by a top government

Pay gains for young women; inequality still seen


WASHINGTON (AP)
- Young American
women are increasingly
likely to receive pay
nearly equal to their
male counterparts, with
earnings at 93 percent
of men, a new study
finds. Still, those women
remain as pessimistic
as their mothers and
grandmothers regarding
gender equality.
A report for release
Wednesday by the Pew
Research Center paints a
mixed picture.
While women under
32 now have higher rates
of college completion
than men that age, the
analysis of census and


labor data shows their
hourly earnings will slip
further behind by the
women's mid-30s, if the
experience of the past
three decades is a guide.
That widening gap is
due in part to the many
women who take time
off or reduce their hours
to start families. Other
factors cited in the report
are gender stereotyping,
discrimination, weaker
professional networks
and women's hesitancy to
aggressively push for rais-
es and promotions, which
together may account for
20 to 40 percent of the
pay gap.
In all, 75 percent of

women ages 18-32 say
the U.S. needs to do
more to bring about
equality in the workplace,
a percentage similar to
baby boomer women
ages 49-67 and higher
than other age groups.
Some 57 percent of young
men answered that way.
Even so, just 15 percent
of young women say they
have been discriminated
against because of their
gender.

'Near parity'
"Today's generation
of young women is
entering the labor force
near parity with men in
terms of earnings and
extremely well-prepared
in terms of their educa-
tional attainment," said
Kim Parker, associate
director with the Pew
Social & Demographic
Trends Project. "They
feel empowered in many
ways, yet when they look
at the workplace, they
see it as a 'man's world'
with the deck stacked
against them."
/ rA. ,


"They think that men
earn more than women
for doing the same job
and that it's easier for
men to get top executive
jobs than it is for wom-
en," she said.
Women are increas-
ingly moving into higher
career positions both
in government and
business. They make up
nearly half the workforce,
and the share of women
in managerial and
administrative occupa-
tions is nearly equal to
that of men 15 percent
compared to 17 percent.
Another landmark
came Tuesday, when
General Motors picked
Mary Barra, a 33-year
company veteran, as the
first female head of a
major U.S. car company.
Still, women currently
hold just 4.5 percent
of Fortune 1000 CEO
positions, the Pew report
said.
Andrew Cherlin, a
sociology professor
at Johns Hopkins
University, attributed

assessments about
gender equality to their
rising career expecta-
tions. "More doors are
now open to women, but
they can now see how far
they are from equality in
high-level jobs," he said.

Near-equal pay
The near-equal pay for
young women is being
driven in large part by
their educational gains.
Some 38 percent of
women ages 25-32 now
hold bachelor's degrees,
compared to 31 percent
of young men. As a
result, 49 percent of em-
ployed workers with at
least a bachelor's degree
last year were women,
up from 36 percent in
1980. That means more
women in higher-skilled,
higher-paying positions.
The current ratio of
hourly earnings for
young women to young
men, now at 93 percent,
is up from 67 percent in
1980 and is the highest in
government records dat-
ing back to at least 1979.
Across all age groups,
the median hourly wage
for women last year was
84 percent as much as
men -$14.90 vs. $17.79,
up from 64 percent in


1980.
At the same time, the
Pew study indicates that
a woman's job advance-
ment often will hit a
ceiling, due in part to
competing demands of
work and family. Women
remain twice as likely as
men to work part time
and are more likely to
take significant time off
from employment during
their lives to care for
children or other family
members.
Among young women,
59 percent say that being
a working parent makes
it harder to advance in a
job or career, compared
to just 19 percent of
young men. Across all
age groups, 22 percent of
women and 9 percent of
men report having quit
jobs for family reasons at
some point during their
working lives.
Fewer young women
than young men aspire
to become a boss or
top manager. Some
34 percent say they're not
interested, compared to
24 percent of young men.
And the vast majority
of adults of all ages who
reduced their work hours
to care for family mem-
bers 94 percent say
they are glad they did it.

Winfrey

book club pick

NEWYORK (AP)-
Here's something to
pre-order for the holi-

new book club pick.
Winfrey has chosen
Sue Monk Kidd's "The
Invention of Wings,"
coming out Jan. 7. An
interview with Kidd will
appear in the upcoming
edition of"O: The Oprah
Magazine," which arrives
Dec. 17. A conversation
with Kidd will air next
year at a date to be deter-
mined on the talk-show
host's Super Soul Sunday,
on OWN (the Oprah
Winfrey Network).
Kidd's novel, a
19th-century narrative
featuring real and fic-
tional characters, weaves
together the stories of
a slave girl and a slave
owner's daughter. Like
Kidd's million-selling
"The Secret Life of Bees,"
the book is set in South
Carolina, where the
65-year-old author lived
for many years.

Missing couple,
children found
alive in Nevada
RENO, Nev. (AP) -A
desperate search for a
couple and four children
missing for two days in
the below-zero cold of
Nevada's rugged moun-
tains turned jubilant
Tuesday when rescuers
guided in part by cell-
phone signals and foot-
prints in the snow found
them alive and well near
their overturned Jeep.
About 200 people had
searched by land and
air after the group of six
failed to return Sunday
from a trip to play in
the snow near their
hometown of Lovelock, in
Nevada's high desert.
"They stayed together
and that was the key
that allowed them to live
through this experience.
You don't see that that
often in search and
rescue," said Paul Burke,
search-and-rescue
coordinator for the state.
"They did some pretty
unusual things, heating
up rocks and things.
Staying together, that was
a big deal."
Their Jeep had over-
turned just off a road. A
member of the rescue
team said the engine
would no longer start, but
the group stayed in the
upside-down vehicle for
shelter, burning the spare
tire to keep warm.

Ban on high-risk bank trades OK'd


WASHINGTON (AP)
- U.S. regulators have
taken a major step to-
ward reining in high-risk
trading on Wall Street,
banning the largest
banks from trading for
their own profit in most
cases.
It took three years
to write and adopt the
Volcker Rule, one of the
most critical changes
to financial laws in the
wake of the 2008 banking
crisis.
The Federal Reserve
and the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corp., the
Securities and Exchange
Commission, the
Commodity Futures
Trading Commission
and the Office of the
Comptroller of the
Currency each voted
Tuesday to adopt it.
The final version is
stricter than many had
expected. Its goal is to
reduce the kind of trades
that nearly toppled the fi-
nancial system five years
ago and required taxpay-
er-funded bailouts.
At its heart, the rule
seeks to ban banks from
almost all proprietary
trading. The practice
of trading for their own
profit has been very
lucrative for big banks
like JPMorgan Chase,
Bank of America and
Citigroup. The rule also
limits banks' investments
in hedge funds.
But the 920-page
rule contains several

In this March 18,1980, file photo, Federal Reserve Board Chairman Paul Volcker listens to a
question as he appears before the Senate Banking Committee in Washington, D.C. The Federal
Reserve and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. each unanimously voted to adopt the so-called
Volcker Rule, taking a major step toward preventing extreme risk-taking on Wall Street that
helped trigger the 2008 financial crisis.


exemptions that allow
banks to continue pro-
prietary trading in some
instances. That raises
questions about whether
the government can
completely limit extreme
risk-taking in a complex
financial world.
Congress instructed
regulators to draft the
Volcker Rule under the
2010 financial overhaul
law. It was a high-priority
proposal for President
Barack Obama and
named after Paul Volcker,
a former Fed chairman
who was an adviser
to Obama during the
financial crisis.


On Tuesday, Obama
praised regulators for
adopting a rule that
ensures "big banks
can't make risky bets
with their customers'
deposits."
Regulators won't begin
enforcing the rule until
2015. The largest banks
will be required to show
next year how they are
taking steps toward
compliance.
The U.S. Chamber of
Commerce on Tuesday
said the rule could hurt
Main Street businesses
by making it harder for
them to raise capital as
banks' available cash is


reduced. The business
lobbying group hinted at
a possible court chal-
lenge, saying it will "take
all options into account
as we decide how best to
proceed."
Wall Street banks
lobbied fiercely against
the rule, arguing it could
prevent them from
using their own money
to control risk in their
portfolios.
Banks had also con-
tended that the rule
could limit financial
trades if it prevents them
from using their own
money to take the other
side of a client's trade.

But in a year that has
seen both sides take small
steps at improving the
relationship, the handshake
stoked talk of further
rapprochement.
"On the one hand you
shouldn't make too much
of this. Relations between
Cuba and the United States
are not changing tomorrow
because they shook hands,"
said GeoffThale, a Cuba
analyst at the Washington
Office on Latin America, a
U.S.-based think tank.
He contrasted the

"Born during World
War I, far from the
corridors of power, a boy

tutored by the elders
of his Thembu tribe,
Madiba would emerge
as the last great liberator

Obama said, referring
to Mandela by his clan
name.
Obama, who like
Mandela became the
first black president of
his country, said he was
inspired by Mandela as a
student. The speech was
greeted with thunderous
applause, and many
heads of state and other

conservatives to oppose
the deal.
The White House
quickly issued a state-
ment from Obama
praising the deal as a
"good first step." He
urged lawmakers to both
parties to follow up and
"actually pass a budget
based on this agreement
so I can sign it into law
and our economy can
continue growing and
creating jobs without
more Washington
headwinds."

Girlfriend wants charges dropped against Zimmerman


ORLANDO (AP)
- Prosecutors are
considering whether
to move forward with
domestic violence
charges against George
Zimmerman even
though his girlfriend is
asking them not to do
so.
Without a witness
willing to testify, prose-
cutors can still use law
enforcement reports,
911 calls and other
witnesses to build a
case. But such cases are
more difficult to prove,
State Attorney's Office
spokeswoman Lynne
Bumpus Hooper said.
Zimmerman filed
an affidavit from his
girlfriend, Samantha
Scheibe, saying she
doesn't want him
charged with aggravat-
ed assault, battery and


criminal mischief. The
affidavit was filed with
a motion Monday ask-
ing a judge to change

with Scheibe.
Zimmerman was
acquitted of any crime
last summer in the
2012 shooting death
of 17-year-old Trayvon
Martin, a case that
sparked a nationwide
debate about race
and self-defense laws.
Zimmerman, who
identifies himself as
Hispanic, was accused
of racially profiling the
black teen, but said he
shot Martin to protect
himself.
Zimmerman was
arrested last month
after Scheibe accused
him in a 911 call of

Stocks lower after hitting record


NEWYORK (AP)-
Stocks fell modestly
Tuesday as investors
took a breather from a
market that notched yet
another record high the
day before.
The market has hit
several all-time highs in
recent months, but with
the holiday season and
end of the year ap-
proaching many inves-
tors expect the market
to be calm as 2013 winds
down.
"It's quiet, and the
only trading that will go
on the rest of this year


will be people selling for
tax reasons and window
dressing," said Jack Ablin,
chief investment officer
for BMO Private Bank,
which manages $66
billion of assets.
It's a common practice
for portfolio managers, in
the last couple weeks of
the year, to close out po-
sitions, sell off poor-per-
forming stocks and try
to make portfolios look
as good as they possibly
can when they mail their
year-end statements to
investors. On Wall Street,
the practice is sometimes


called "window dressing."
The Dow Jones indus-
trial average fell 52.40
points, or 0.3 percent, to
15,973.13.
The Standard & Poor's
500 index lost 5.75
points, or 0.3 percent, to
1,802.62. The index hit an
all-time high Monday.
The Nasdaq compos-
ite lost 8.26 points, or
0.2 percent, to 4,060.49.
Banking stocks were
mostly higher after
investors got some clarity
on new regulations.
Federal regulators
voted to approve the


Volcker Rule, which bars
banks from betting on
the market with their
own money. The Federal
Deposit Insurance
Corporation, the
Securities and Exchange
Commission and other
federal agencies ap-
proved the rule, which
will go into effect by
July 2015 for the nation's
largest banks.

Use sense to lock out keyword scammers


K eywords. One
component of
making sure that a
website shows up when
we search for things is
the use of keywords.


They are common terms
entered into a search
engine, such as Google
or Bing, causing it to look
for specific items. These
are trigger terms that
elicit a response from the
search engine.
Marketers use
keywords to prompt
us to act in a specific
fashion. Keywords such
as robberies, fire and
break-ins are used to
convince us to purchase
security cameras and
monitoring services.
Identity theft and credit
destruction are keywords
to elicit a decision to
purchase credit-monitor-
ing services. Molds and
gases are the trigger for
air-conditioning clean-
ing, and the list goes on.
What are some of the
keywords directed to-
ward our binary buddies
that, while not bothering
our digital domestique
one bit, cause us to
react in a panic? "You've


been hacked," "your
computer is about to
crash." "all your financial
information has been
stolen," "someone has
been in your computer,"
"you're about to lose
all your pictures and doc-
uments," and still more,
setting fear loose in our
imagination.
The biggest scam
going now is the
"speed-up-my-comput-
er-with-a-single-click"
scam. Or the search for
printer support that
takes us, not to the
printer manufacturer
but some company that
claims to support the
printer manufacturer.
The phone call from
"Microsoft" that our
computer is sending out
a virus. Maybe they even


direct us to a website
that boldly displays the
Microsoft Partner logo.
Now the coup de grace,
for only $299 all the
problems can be fixed.
By the way, did we men-
tion a one-year service
contract is included? It
just sounds too good to
be true! Hand over the
credit card and wake up
the next morning with
that really bad feeling
that maybe it wasn't what
it sounded like. What do
we do now?
Unfortunately, these
scammers have added a
new layer to their ploy.
They now are demanding
that we electronically
sign an invoice for their
services so that when
we challenge the credit
card payment, they send
the company our signed
invoice and the dispute is
dismissed.
The next time we find
ourselves in this pickle,
remember these simple
things:
One, Microsoft will
never call you.
Two, if we do banking
and stock trading on
our computers, that


information is actually
on the bank/broker's
computer, not ours, so
no one can steal our
information from our PC.
Three, if a computer
is about to crash, it either
crashes or it doesn't; it

worried about losing

perform a backup. There

ear Dave: What
would you recom-
mend for 401(k)
contributions while get-
ting out of debt? Chaz
Dear Chaz: I recommend
putting a temporary stop
to investing while you're
getting out of debt. Lots
of people are shocked by
this advice, because they're
afraid of missing out on
the wonders of compound
interest or their employer's
match. But the key word
here is "temporary."
Millions of people have
followed and been suc-
cessful with the program
found in The Total Money
Makeover. The first step,
Baby Step 1, is to save
$1,000 as a starter emer-
gency fund. Baby Step 2 is
pay off all of your debts,
except for your house,
from smallest to largest
with the debt snowball
plan. During this time
you're attacking your debt
with incredible intensity
and putting every penny
you can scrape together
toward knocking out debt.
The average person
working my plan can pay
off all their debt, excluding
their home, in 18 to 24
months. Some folks can
do it faster, and for some
it takes a little bit longer.
But during this time I want
your financial focus to be
squarely on getting out
of debt. Once that's done,
you'll find that you have a
lot more control over your
biggest wealth-building
tool: your income.
Many times in life we
try to accomplish too
many things at once. One
problem with this is often
it diminishes our ability to
focus. When you spend all
your time nickel-and-di-
ming everything, the
result is that nothing gets
done very well. You need
to really move the needle
and see results because
personal finance is 80
percent behavior and


only 20 percent head
knowledge. It's not really
a math issue because if
you'd been doing the math
all along, you wouldn't
have a bunch of debt.
That's why, for a short
period of time, I want you
to concentrate with laser
intensity on knocking out
debt. Dave

Dear Dave: My wife and
I make about $100,000
a year. We have $63,000
in the bank, and we owe
$47,000 on our home.
The house is worth about
$250,000, and it's our only
debt. We'd like to go ahead
and pay off the house,
but we're worried about
depleting our savings to
that extent. What would
you do? Matt
Dear Matt: If I were
in your situation, I'd cut
a check and pay off the
house. Keep in mind that
by doing this we're not
saying you'll keep your
savings at that lower
point. Once that mortgage
payment is off your backs,
you'll be able to save more
and save faster than ever!
That's my advice. Pay
off the house and become
completely debt-free today.
You'll still have $16,000
dollars in the bank and a
six-figure income. It won't
take you long to rebuild
your savings all the way
back to what you had be-
fore, if that's what you both
want. You could do it in just
a few months. -Dave

BANGUI, Central
African Republic (AP) -
More than 500 people
have been killed over the
past week in sectarian
fighting in Central African
Republic, aid officials
said Tuesday, as France
reported that gunmen
fatally shot two of its
soldiers who were part
of the intervention to
disarm thousands of
rebels accused of attack-
ing civilians.
Aid workers have
collected 461 bodies
across the capital of
Bangui since Thursday,
Antoine Mbao Bogo with
the local Red Cross said.
But that latest figure does
not include the scores of
Muslim victims whose
bodies were brought to
mosques for burial.
The government of the
predominantly Christian
country was overthrown
in March by Muslim
rebels from the country's
north. While the rebels
claimed no religious
motive for seizing power,
months of resentment
and hostility erupted
last week in a wave of
violence.
The French deaths
came as French President
Francois Hollande arrived
for a visit to France's
former colony, heading
into the tumultuous
capital after attending a

The casualties under-
score the volatility of
the mission to disarm
combatants and bring
stability to a largely
anarchic capital riven by
sectarian violence.
A mob on Monday
stoned to death a sus-
pected enemy in the
street, and armed fighters
have abducted and killed
hospital patients.


Tensions flared again
Tuesday as a mob of
young men set fire to
a mosque in the Fou
neighborhood of the
capital, Bangui. Smoke
billowed from smolder-
ing vehicles nearby, and
young men used pick
axes and whatever tools
they could find to try to
tear down the walls of
the mosque.
Elsewhere, citizens
killed three suspected


ex-rebels in the Miskine
neighborhood of Bangui
after the men apparently
fired weapons at civilians,
residents said.
France now has some
1,600 troops on the
ground, patrolling neigh-
borhoods and trying to
disarm militants from the
Seleka rebel movement
that forced the president
into exile and installed
President Michel Djotodia
as head of state.

Court: Exec
guilty over faulty
French implants
MARSEILLE, France
(AP) -A disgraced
French businessman was
convicted of fraud and
sentenced to four years
in prison on Tuesday for
filling tens of thousands
of breast implants with
industrial grade silicone.
But he left the courthouse
freely after lodging an
appeal, and thousands of
women will have to wait
longer to discover if they
will receive damages.
The ruling in the
criminal case by a court
in Marseille, which all the
trappings of a class-ac-
tion lawsuit, ordered
up to 40 million euros
($55 million) in damages
paid to a fraction of the
125,000 women world-
wide who received the
implants.
However, that sum for
Jean-Claude Mas' compa-
ny, Poly Implant Prothese,
was largely theoretical
because it is bankrupt,
and because the appeal
froze any efforts to find
alternate sources. It will
be months, if not years,
before any women see
money many say they
need to remove the faulty,
leak-prone implants.
In addition to his pris-
on sentence, the French
businessman was fined
75,000 euros ($103,000).

Goups demand
probe into deaths
of protesters
CAIRO (LA Times) -It
has been nearly four
months but the bloody
events of mid-August still
haunt many Egyptians.
On Tuesday, a consortium
of human rights groups
called for an official probe
of the slaying of nearly
1,000 Islamist protesters
by security forces.
The 13 domestic and
international rights or-
ganizations argued that
it will be difficult for the
country to move for-
ward without a full and
transparent accounting
of the crackdown on
followers of deposed
Islamist president
Mohammed Morsi.
Human rights groups
have called the deaths
the largest unlawful
mass killing in modern
Egyptian history.
The groups issuing the
joint call included New
York-based Human Rights
Watch and London-based
Amnesty International.
Egyptian organizations,
themselves facing heavy
pressure from the mil-
itary-backed interim
government, also joined
in the demand for a full
investigation of political
violence, mainly that
associated with Morsi's
fall.

CARACAS, Venezuela
(Bloomberg) -
Venezuela, the oil pro-

cheapest gasoline, is
considering raising fuel
prices for the first time
in 17 years to boost state
revenue.
"There have to be large
debates in Venezuela
about the price of
gasoline and we will open
this up for discussions
with the entire country
including organizations
and private companies,"
Venezuelan Vice President
Jorge Arreaza said in an
interview Monday with
the Venevision television

Octane 95 gasoline

Police clash with protesters in Ukrainian capital


KIEV, Ukraine (AP) -
Security forces clashed
with protesters as they
began tearing down
opposition barricades and
tents set up in the center
of the Ukrainian capital
earlyWednesday, in an
escalation of the weeks-
long standoff threatening
the leadership of President
Viktor Yanukovych.
Several thousand
police in riot gear used
their shields to push back
protesters and successfully
removed some of their
tents and barricades. But
thousands of protesters,
their ranks swelling
through the night, put
up fierce resistance for
hours, shoving back at the
police lines to keep them
away from the center
of the protest camp on
Independence Square in
downtown Kiev.
The protests began


in late November when
Yanukovych backed away
from a pact that would
deepen the former Soviet
republic's economic
ties with the 28-nation
European Union a pact
that surveys showed was
supported by nearly half
the country's people. The
agreement would make
Ukraine more Western-
oriented and would
represent a significant loss
of face for Russia, which
has either controlled or
heavily influenced Ukraine
for centuries.
Demonstrators, waving
EU and Ukrainian flags
and singing the national
anthem, shouted "Shame!
Shame!" and "We will
stand." Scuffles broke
out between police and
opposition lawmakers,

the snow trying to block

in the square.

Kiev police said author-
ities were merely trying to
clear the streets leading
to Independence Square,
but not to remove the
main encampment, the


crisis.
Aiming to defuse the
crisis, Yanukovych had
called Tuesday for the re-
lease of the demonstrators
previously arrested in the


protests and vowed that
Ukraine is still interested in
integrating with Europe.
His efforts, however,
stopped far short of
opposition demands that
his government resign, and
the two sides appeared no
closer to a resolution that
would chart out a secure
future for their economi-
cally troubled nation.
Soon after Yanukovych
spoke in a televised
broadcast, top opposition
leader ArseniyYatsenyuk
told demonstrators at the
square that the protest
leaders were still insisting
on their key demands:
that Yanukovych fire the
government, appoint a
new one committed to
signing an association
agreement with the EU,
release all the arrested
protesters, and punish
police who beat peaceful
demonstrators.

Dementia researchers urge prevention to cut global cost


LONDON (Bloomberg)
- The suffering and
costs of dementia would
be reduced by preven-
tative measures if the
Group of Eight nations
adopt a model that has
worked in fighting heart
disease, a group of doc-
tors and scientists said.
'About half of
Alzheimer's disease cases
worldwide might be
attributable to known
risk factors," they said
in a statement before a
G-8 meeting in London
Wednesday to coordinate
responses to the condi-
tion. "Taking immediate
action on the known risk
factors could perhaps
prevent up to one-fifth of


predicted new cases by
2025."
The costs of demen-
tia were estimated at
$604 billion for 2010,
the group said, and the
number of cases is set
to more than triple by
2050. The 111 signatories
from 36 countries called
on governments to
back more research into
prevention, and policies
such as promotion of
healthier diets. The G-8
are Britain, the United
States, Germany, France,
Canada, Italy, Russia and
Japan.
"The choice is stark,"
said Zaven Khachaturian,
a signatory and editor-in-
chief of U.S. journal


Alzheimer's & Dementia.
"Either you invest money
in creating this infra-
structure for preventing
or delaying dementia,
or continue along the
way. If we continue with
the current trends, no
country's health care
system will be able to
provide care."
Alzheimer's Disease
International estimates
that 44 million people
worldwide have demen-
tia, which will rise to
76 million in 2030 and
135 million by 2050,
according to data from
the group of Alzheimer's
associations.
About $40 billion has
been invested in drug


development efforts
that haven't produced
effective new medicines,
the researchers said in
Tuesday's statement.
Even so, recent research
suggests there may be
cheap options to help
tackle the problem.
A cocktail of vitamins
B6 and B12 and folic
acid would cost pen-
nies a day and slowed
atrophy of gray matter
in brain areas affected
by Alzheimer's disease,
according to a study
published in May by
the Proceedings of the
National Academy of
Sciences.
About half the fall in
deaths from conditions


such as heart disease
and stroke in the past
50 years resulted from
modifying risk factors,
according to the scien-
tists advocating preven-
tion. Taking a similar
approach to dementia by
encouraging middle-
aged people to adopt
healthy lifestyles may
ward off the condition
as it does other diseases
and save "huge sums,"
they said.
Researchers said a
healthy lifestyle includes
exercising; not smoking;
following a diet rich in
fruit, vegetables and
fish; avoiding obesity,
diabetes and excessive
alcohol; and treating


high blood pressure.
Other research is help-
ing to identify people at
risk. A person's chance of
getting dementia before
age 65 may develop as
early as adolescence,
according to a study that
suggests teens with high
blood pressure or who
drink excessively are at
risk.
Other risk factors
include stroke, use of
antipsychotics, father's
dementia, drug intoxi-
cation, as well as short
stature and low cognitive
function, according to
the study of Swedish
men published by the
journal JAMA Internal
Medicine in August.

Brains of women,


men wired differently


(New Scientist) -
Women's and men's brains
are wired differently, in
ways that seem to match
the stereotypes. The find-
ing comes from a method
of visualizing brain
connections, although it
doesn't give an idea of how
the differences initially
arose.
RaginiVerma at the
University of Pennsylvania
and colleagues scanned
the brains of 949 people
ages 8 to 22. They focused
on two regions: the cortex,
involved in thought,
perception and language;
and the cerebellum, which
coordinates movement.
Their method tracks the
motion of water molecules
to show where nerves stop
and start, revealing what is
known as the connectome.
The left and right
hemispheres of the cortex
were much more con-
nected with each other in
females than in males. But


in males, each cerebellum
had more links to the cor-
tex on the opposite side
of the brain than females.
This favors connections
that promote coordinated
movement, which males
can generally do faster in
tests.
The cortical linkup in
females would promote
communication between
areas involved in ana-
lytical and verbal tasks
and those for spatial
and intuitive processing,
the team says. Among
other things, this might
reflect a superior ability
to process emotions
and understand others'
intentions.
Now, the researchers
want to find out whether
individual male and
female brains within
those populations always
differ along these lines, or
whether there is a range
of variations in which the
sexes overlap.

Lemon Bay's stretch run seals win against DeSoto County


STAFF REPORT
ARCADIA-With a 16-point
lead nearly vanished, Lemon Bay
High School needed to regroup in
the fourth quarter. So the Manta
Rays looked to spread the ball
out and get it into the hands of
Hayley Smith.
They accomplished that in a 55-
46 win against DeSoto County on
Tuesday night in a District 5A-11
matchup. Smith, whose season
high is 21, finished with 18 points
and added seven rebounds and
four steals.
She also got plenty of help from

her teammates.
Lemon Bay (7-3, 3-0) controlled
the tempo early and capitalized
on Bulldog turnovers to take a
16-point lead into halftime. But
the Mantas struggled with their
shooting to open the second half.
"A shot wasn't going in for us and
they were getting easy run-ins,"
Lemon Bay coach Mike Young said.
"We stopped rebounding the ball."


DeSoto County, meanwhile,
controlled the offensive boards
in the third quarter and made the
lion's share of first-chance baskets
to outscore the Mantas 21-12 in a
dominating run.
But Lemon Bay's balanced
offense proved the difference in
the fourth quarter.
Kacyn Shirley and Smith made
big free throws as the Mantas
went 4 for 5 from the line down
the stretch. Kayla Reid and Taylor
DiGiacomo added key rebounds
in the final run to seal the win for

ENGLEWOOD -Tuesday's
District 5A- 11 game between

The game featured six ties and

Three-team trade



highlights busy day


By RONALD BLUM
ASSOCIATED PRESS
LAKE BUENAVISTA
- The winter meetings
got busy Tuesday with
a three-team trade that
sent slugger Mark Trumbo
to Arizona, and Oakland
dealt pitcher Brett
Anderson to Colorado.
Halfway through the
four-day swap session, the
15-foot-wide dais at the
Dolphin Hotel near Walt
DisneyWorld has been
used for three announce-
ments involving player
transactions triple the
total of last year's meet-
ings in Nashville, Tenn.
In the big deal of the
day, the Chicago White
Sox acquired outfield-
er Adam Eaton from
Arizona for left-hander
Hector Santiago, and the
Diamondbacks then sent
Santiago and left-hander
Tyler Skaggs to the Angels
for Trumbo. Arizona also
will receive a player to be
named or cash from each
of the other teams.
"It's nice when you're
able to have three clubs
up here all feeling good
about things," White Sox
general manager Rick
Hahn said.
Arizona GM Kevin
Towers was interested in
another of Hahn's players:
pitcher Chris Sale. But
Chicago doesn't appear
interested in dealing the
24-year-old left-hander.
Trumbo, 27, hit .234
with 34 home runs and
100 RBIs this year, playing
first base in 123 games
because Albert Pujols
was hurt. Despite hitting
95 homers during the
last three seasons, the
sometimes outfielder was
deemed superfluous by

would do at first base, I
think we have a chance to
be really good," Friedman
said. "Obviously, that's
our goal."
Further, Friedman said
there are no scenarios un-
der discussion in which
they break up the team
enough to not be good.
"I can't imagine (that),"
he said. "It's not at all
what we're focused on.
It's not what is driving
us when we wake up
every morning. Our goal
is to, as we sit here in
December as we talk
about every year, is to
play competitive games
in September."
Resolution on Price is
the primary question, and
the speculation seemed
quelled a bit on Tuesday.
Two potential contenders,
the Angels and D'backs,
made a three-way deal
with the White Sox that
likely dropped them from
the list that includes
the Dodgers, Mariners


Los Angeles, which craved
starting pitching behind
Jered Weaver, C.J. Wilson
and Garrett Richards.
After finishing last in
the AL Central with their
worst record since 1970 at
63-99, the White Sox were
looking to make changes,
and Hahn is counting on
Eaton to provide a spark.
"We lacked a little bit of
energy and a little edge,"
Hahn said. "This is a
dirt-bag baseball player.
This is a guy who has
been described to me by
someone at this table with
words I can't use."
Oakland, the two-time
defending AL West cham-
pion, received lefty Drew
Pomeranz and minor
league right-hander Chris
Jensen from the Rockies
for Anderson. The As also
included cash to cover
part of the salary of the
left-hander, who is due $8
million next season.
Oakland GM Billy Beane
has made four trades in
a nine-day span, also ac-
quiring closer Jim Johnson
from Baltimore, reliever
Luke Gregerson from San
Diego and outfielder Craig
Gentry from Texas.
Some bigger names
were being shopped, with
Tampa Bay discussing of-
fers for 2012 AL CyYoung
Award winner David
Price and the Los Angeles
Dodgers listening to those
interested in outfielder
Matt Kemp.
Among free agents,
Detroit closed in on an
agreement with outfielder
Rajai Davis for a two-
year contract worth $9
million to $10 million, a
person familiar with the
negotiations said. The
person spoke on condi-
tion of anonymity to The

and Rangers and others.
Price's camp didn't hear
much either.
But the Rays have other
issues, starting with first
base, where they would
like to bring back free
agent James Loney, but
are exploring additional
options. Ike Davis
(Mets), Mitch Moreland
(Rangers), Logan
Morrison (Marlins), Ike
Davis and Lucas Duda
(Mets) are among trade
possibilities,. Mark
Trumbo is off the list after
going from the Angels to
the D'backs.
Friedman reported
"a little bit" of progress
Tuesday in that search,
but still didn't know
if they would end up sign-
ing a free agent or making
a trade.
"I think we're getting
more clarity," he said.
"I wouldn't characterize
anything as imminent
but I think we're getting
more information that
is helpful in our deci-
sion-making process."
There will be other
moves, filling out the


Associated Press because
an agreement had not
been completed.
It's unclear whether
Japanese star pitcher
Masahiro Tanaka will be
made available to Major
League Baseball teams.
Rakuten Eagles President
Yozo Tachibana said no
decision had been made.
The New York Yankees
are among the teams
interested in Tanaka, 24-0
in Japan's regular season.
Major League Baseball
and Nippon Professional
Baseball have an agree-
ment in principle on a
new posting system. If rat-
ified by both sides, there
would be a $20 million
cap on the fee going to
Japanese clubs for players
put on the posting market,
and any MLB teams
bidding the specified price
would be able to compete
to sign a player.
A day after finalizing
a $60 million, four-year
contract with the New
York Mets, outfielder
Curtis Granderson
injected some playfully
provocative words into
New York's baseball rivalry.
A Bronx-to-Queens switch
from the Yankees is rare.
"A lot of the people I've
met in New York have
always said true New
Yorkers are Mets fans,"
Granderson quipped. "So
I'm excited to get a chance
to see them all out there."
First baseman-out-
fielder Garrett Jones and
Miami finalized a $7.75
million, two-year contract,
catcher J.P Arencibia and
Texas completed a $1.8
million, one-year deal,
and right-hander Ryan
Webb and Baltimore
finished a two-year
agreement.

bench and adding to the
bullpen, and at least a
possibility of trading Matt
Joyce, but Friedman said
he is comfortable with
the current mix.
"We feel like we're in
a good position to keep
runs off the board, and
if we're able to improve
upon that the rest of the
winter all the better," he
said. "From a run-scoring
standpoint we need to
figure out what we're go-
ing to do at first base but
having (David) Dejesus
all year, having Wil
Myers for a full season,
there's things in there
we feel like will make us
a better offensive team.
But obviously we want to
get better on that front as
well."
Though principal
owner Stuart Sternberg
suggested a reduction
in payroll was possible
after finishing last in
attendance, the Rays with
Price's estimated $13
million salary, and even
potentially without, now
seem likely to exceed last
season's $62 million.

OLYMPIC CHAMPION joining the Olympics in 2024.
LYSACEK DROPS OUT AUTO RACING
OF SOCHI OLYMPICS


WIRE REPORTS
Figure skater Evan
Lysacek, whose artistry
and near-flawless per-
formance landed him
atop the podium at the
2010 Vancouver Games,
announced Tuesday that
a lingering hip injury will
prevent him from defend-
ing his gold medal at the
upcoming Sochi Olympics.
Lysacek, 28, hadn't
competed since his
triumph nearly four years
ago. In order to qualify
for consideration for
the 2014 Olympics, he
would have had to post a
minimum qualifying score
in an international meet
leading up to the upcom-
ing U.S. Figure Skating
Championships, to be
held in January, at which
the country's Sochi-bound
team will be selected.
Despite two months of
aggressive treatment on
his injured hip, Lysacek
said he was informed by
doctors that he risked
permanent injury if he
persisted.
The first U.S. man to
win Olympic figure skating
gold in 24 years, Lysacek
stopped short of an-
nouncing his retirement,
reiterating his desire to
compete....
IOC President Thomas Bach said
Russia will set up public protestzones
in Sochi during the Winter Olympics, a
move unlikely to defuse criticism of the
country's human rights record and a
recent law banning gay"propaganda."
Bach, chairing his first board meeting
since being elected president in
September, said the Russians would
establish specially designated zones
for"people who want to express their
opinion or want to demonstrate for or
against something."...
Football took a tiny step closer to
potential inclusion in the Olympics
when the IOC's executive board
granted provisional recognition to the
international association that oversees
the American brand of the sport. The
International Federation of American
Football (IFAF) had 64 member nations
spanning six continents. USA Football
governs the sport in the United States
and is associated with the NFL. A vote
on approving football for the Summer
Games could take place as early as
2017, with the possibility of the sport

Mantas take tie as win


By PETE SISK
SUN CORRESPONDENT
CAPE CORAL-
Coming in to Tuesday
night, Island Coast High
School's last two matches
ended in ties. Lemon Bay
became part of that trend.
The Manta Rays and
Gators played to a 0-0 tie
in a District 3A-13 match.
"It felt nice to come out
and play hard," Manta
Rays coach Katie Cooke
said. "We didn't come out
with the win. We always
go for the win but tonight
we'll take the tie."
The Mantas (2-11-2
overall) moved to 0-3-2 in
District 3A-13.
"I'm sure it was frus-
trating for them because


they've had a lot of ties,"
Cooke said. "But for us,
we'll take it as a win."
Both sides were playing
for the second night in a
row, and at times showed
weariness in the second
half.
"We are not a sec-
ond-half team," Cooke
said. "We are a first-half
team. So for them to hang
in and battle as long as
they did, I was pretty
proud of them."
The Mantas came up
with a three-minute run of
heavy pressure deep in the
Island Coast end from the
69th minute to the 72nd.
However, with the Gators
(7-5-6, 1-3-2) tightly
packed inside the box,
Lemon Bay couldn't get off

a clean shot at goalkeeper
Sydni Brookhouser.
Brookhouser took a shot
at the Mantas in the late
moments as she booted a
long free kick that sailed
well wide of the Lemon
Bay goal.
The first half was dif-
ferent, with Lemon Bay's
Kayla Kreher, Summer
Rusher, Hope Robson and
Stephanie Tieu all taking
shots at Brookhouser.
Still, whether first half or
second, nothing went into
the net. For either side.
"We have been


perpetually unlucky this
season when it comes to
goal-scoring," Cooke said.
"We can't seem to find the
back of the net. We have
fantastic forwards. You
know sometimes it's just a
little bit of luck."
"I thought overall it was
a good performance for
the girls," Island Coast
Jason Duhaime said.
"There are a lot of things
we can work on. Our
crosses weren't there. Our
positioning was a little off
at times. I thought they
battled well for back-to-
back games.
"Lemon Bay's a great
opponent. They played us
for all we've got."
Madison Johnson had
four saves for the Mantas.

Sharks set goal,

STAFF REPORT
NORTH PORT -
Playing its second District
1A-7 match in as many
night's and fielding a
squad of only 10 players,
the Imagine School boys
soccer team set a goal
for the second half of
Tuesday's 5-0 loss to Out-
of-Door Academy.
The Sharks, trailing 5-0
at halftime, made up their
minds that they would tie
ODA in the second half.
And they did just that,
even with one less player
on the pitch than the
Thunder.
"My kids didn't give
up, I thought that was
awesome," Imagine coach
Ryan Alvarez said.
Alvarez praised the
play of junior goalkeeper
Pablo Mollineda, who
had over 20 saves as the
Thunder's attack was
relentless.
"He's still learning the

also got goals from
sophomores Lexi Egoville
and Mackenzie Combs,
the latter of whom kicked
a desperation 45-yarder
during stoppage time in
the first half that crept
under the crossbar and
into the net to give the
Bobcats a 3-0 lead at the
half.
But it was Krstec's
night, as she took ad-
vantage of miscues on
the defensive end. After
Egoville scored on a
misplay by Sarasota goal-
keeper Savannah Long in
the 17th minute to make
it 1-0 North Port, Krstec
was able to get Long to
overcommit on a break
and snuck the ball past
her in the 19th minute to
make it 2-0.

UNFL:


6 showdowns to watch with 3 weeks


ByJOE KAY
ASSOCIATED PRESS
Cincinnati Bengals cor-
nerback Adam "Pacman"
Jones knows how it goes
this time of the season,
with so much at stake for
so many teams.
Division titles. Wild
card berths. Home field
advantage. All those
wacky games decided in
downpours, blizzards and
domes have set the stage
for deciding the NFL
playoff field in the next
three weeks. And right
now, that field is about as
clear as a wintery after-
noon in Philadelphia.
Denver, Indianapolis


and Seattle are the only
teams that have clinched
playoff berths with three
weeks left.
And the conference
playoff seeds are still wide
open.
"If we just win out,
we'll be OK," said Jones,
whose Bengals are closing
in on the AFC North
title. "That's all we've got
to do. Win out and let
everything else take care
of itself."
Every other contender
is saying the same thing.
Easy to say, tough to do.
Six games with extra
significance in the closing
three weeks show just
how tough.


1 PATRIOTS AT DOLPHINS
Sunday: New England (10-3)
leads the AFC East and currently
has the No. 2 seed, a game ahead of
Cincinnati (9-3). But the Bengals beat
them during the season, so Cincinnati
would be No. 2 if they end tied. It'll be
New England's first game since losing
tight end Rob Gronkowski again, this
time to a knee injury. The Patriots
went 5-1 without him at the start of
the season, but their offense picked
up measurably when he returned.
Gronkowski had 37 catches for 560
yards in six games, the most by an
NFL tight end. They're back to trying
to reach the playoffs without him,
facing a Miami (7-6) team tied with
Baltimore (7-6) for the final wild card
slot. The Ravens beat the Dolphins
26-23 on Oct. 6 for the head-to-head
tiebreaker.


2 BEARS AT EAGLES
Dec. 22: The game has been
flexed to Sunday night because
of its significance. Philadelphia (8-5)
has won five in a row, including that
snowy 34-20 victory over Detroit last
Sunday, to take sole possession of first
place in the NFC East, a game ahead of
Dallas. Chicago's 45-28 win over Dallas
on Monday night left the Bears and
Lions tied at 7-6 atop the NFC North.
3 SAINTS AT PANTHERS
Dec. 22: The NFC South title
could be decided. The Saints
(10-3) took a one-game lead with a
31-13 win over the Panthers in New
Orleans on Sunday, with Drew Brees
throwing for four touchdowns against
the NFL's stingiest defense. At 9-4, the
Panthers and San Francisco are in line
for the two wild card spots.


4 PATRIOTS AT RAVENS
Dec. 22: The defending
Super Bowl champions have
struggled on offense all season, but
have managed to hang in there in
the playoff chase. The Ravens are 6-1
at home but have a tough closing
stretch: at Detroit on Monday night,
New England, at Cincinnati. The
Patriots play at Miami and Baltimore
before hosting Buffalo.
49ERS AT CARDINALS
Dec. 29: San Francisco trails
Seattle (11-2) by two games
in the NFC West. Arizona (8-5) is a
game behind the 49ers and Panthers
for the two wild cards. The 49ers
play at Tampa Bay and host Atlanta
before finishing at Arizona. Seattle
plays at the Giants before hosting the
Cardinals and Rams.


to play

TEXANS AT TITANS
Dec. 29: A showdown of
sorts, but certainly not the one
Houston fans expected. Instead of a
playoff showdown for a team with
Super Bowl aspirations before the
season started, this is for the top pick
in next year's draft. Also, it's open
season for coaching changes. Houston
started it by firing Gary Kubiak last
Friday, a day after the Texans suffered
their 11th straight loss. They are at
the bottom of the league and top
of the draft list at 2-11. Washington
and Atlanta are a game behind at
3-10, followed by Minnesota at 3-9-1.
Houston will have a tough time
climbing out of the bottom spot. The
Texans finish at AFC South champion
Indianapolis and at home against
Denver, which leads the AFC, before
playing at Tennessee (5-8).

"I think the fans were
speaking for me," Frazier
said at the Waldorf Astoria
hotel before the latest
class of Hall of Famers

Feats of Clay gi




Dolphins a boo


By STEVEN WINE
ASSOCIATED PRESS
DAVIE In his many
roles with the Miami
Dolphins, Charles Clay
recalls one assignment
as especially daunting:
He attempted to block
325-pound defensive
tackle Vince Wilfork, a
mismatch that made a
lasting impact.
"He clubbed me across
my head," Clay recalled
with a chuckle Tuesday.
That was two years
ago during Clay's rookie
season. Lately he has
been the one to leave
opponents sprawling, and
his emergence as a hybrid
tight end with a big-play
knack has given the
Dolphins' offense some
much-needed punch.
"He has broken about
35 tackles in the last three
games, taking them on
three at a time," teammate
Mike Wallace said. "Guys
don't even really need to
block for Clay anymore.
He's like a bulldozer."
Clay's actual statistics
are only slightly less
impressive than Wallace's
exaggerated numbers.
In the past four games
he has 24 receptions
for 294 yards and three
scores, increasing his

scored a team-high seven

With three regular-sea-

Sunday against New
England, Clay's yardage
total is already the sec-
ond-highest by a Dolphins
tight end, according to
STATS. He could surpass
Randy McMichael, who
had 791 yards on 73 catch-
es in 2004.
A sixth-round draft pick
in 2011, Clay spent his
first two seasons backing
up Anthony Fasano and
totaled 34 receptions for
445 yards and five scores.

Pharaoh Brown was

an on-campus snowball
fight that got out of hand.

Brown apologized in

Troy Brouwer beat
Tampa Bay goalie Ben

win in shootout







* COLLEGE BASKETBALL: No. 19 Florida 67, No. 13 Kansas 61



Defense, Wilbekin



spark Gators to win


By EDGAR THOMPSON
ORLANDO SENTINEL
GAINESVILLE -It
was a marquee matchup
between two national
powers with champion-
ship-winning coaches
on the sideline, Hall of
Fame announcer Dick
Vitale celebrating his 35th
anniversary at ESPN and
a packed house at the
O'Connell Center.
Tuesday night's meeting
between the Florida
Gators and Kansas
Jayhawks also was a clas-
sic bout between youth
and experience.
Experience won.
Barely.
Led by senior point
guard Scottie Wilbekin,
the No. 19 Gators used
guile, grit and relentless
effort to edge the callow
No. 13 Jayhawks, 67-61.
A national TV audience
tuned in and more than 20
NBA scouts turned out to
see the Gators' senior-lad-
en lineup take on Kansas'
four freshmen, a quartet
of future first-round draft
picks led by 6-foot-8
preseason All-America
shooting guard Andrew
Wiggins.
But the Gators' defense
would steal the show in
dramatic fashion.


STATE SCHEDULE
TODAY
Howard at Central Florida, 7 p.m.

Kansas hit two 3-point-
ers to grab an early
10-3 lead, but UF coach
Billy Donovan switched
defenses to baffle the
inexperienced Jayhawks
during an epic 21-0 run by
the Gators (7-2).
"We've played some 2-3,
some 1-3-1 (zone), just to
keep them off balance,"
UF coach Billy Donovan
told ESPN's broadcast
crew during the run.
Kansas missed eight
shots and committed six
turnovers during an 8:43
stretch without a point
as UF charged to a 24-10
lead. The Gators built the
lead to 32-14.
Down 36-21 at halftime,
the Jayhawks (6-3) showed
some life with a 7-0 run,
capped by a 3-pointer by
Wiggins to cut the Gators'
lead to 38-28.
Wilbekin stemmed
the tide with a 3-pointer,
setting the stage for a
brilliant second half for
the Gainesville product.
The 6-foot-2 Wilbekin
scored 11 of his team's 16
points during a pivotal


stretch when the Jayhawks
were able to do no more
than chip away at the
Gators' lead.
Wilbekin finished with
team-highs 18 points and
six assists.
But during the final
three minutes, Wiggins
whittled down the Gators'
lead thanks to three long
3-pointers, the final one
cutting the UF advantage
to 60-55 with 55.8 second
remaining.
Clutch free-throwing
shooting by senior Casey
Prather, who hit eight
straight foul shots at
one point, held off the
Jayhawks' late charge.
Florida extended its
home-court win streak to
21 games.

It's been fun!


M any of you don't know, but I will be
passing Let's Go! on to a new editor in
the coming weeks.
The last year and a half has been a great
journey for me with Let's Go! Helping to build
entertainment awareness in Southwest Florida
has introduced me to events, bands, restaurants
and places that I never would've discovered.
I hope you've enjoyed your entertainment


Let's Go!


publication and that you will continue to look
forward to Wednesday's paper, as many of you
told me you do.
If you ask me, Southwest Florida is paradise.
I have no doubt that Let's Go! will continue to
capture the fun events and great places our area
has to offer.
Thank you to all of our readers for helping
spread the word about Let's Go! Thank you
to everyone I have worked with for different
concerts, shows and even weekly entertainment
schedules. You all have made my job truly


Join the Polar Bear Club at ICE!


L ast Saturday four of us headed over to the
Walt Disney World Resort to see the Candle-
light Processional in the America Gardens
Theatre at Epcot and then, after dinner, the
Osborne Family holiday light display at Disney's
Hollywood Studios. Sadly, there was no time to
check out the ice crystals that cover Cinderella's
Castle in the Magic Kingdom this season. That,
too, is a pretty awesome sight, but what isn't
over at that magical wonderland?
Also fun is a visit to all the major Disney
hotels to compare trees. There is an African


theme at Animal Kingdom Lodge, an old-
fashioned feel to the giant tree at the Grand
Floridian, a Polynesian theme at the Polynesian
Hotel, and a more rustic western look to the one
at the Wilderness Lodge.
Also at the Grand Floridian is a gingerbread
house cookie shop. Imagine buying gingerbread
cookies from a shop made of gingerbread. Resist
the urge to nibble its walls.
Call 407-WDW-DISNEYfor information and
reservations, should you choose to spend more
time at the resort.


enjoyable, and I can't thank you enough.
Finally, thank you to the Sun and everyone I
have worked with over the last year. I couldn't
have asked for better management and our area
is not only luckyto have Let's Go!, but all of the
Sun newspapers. I am fortunate to have had
the opportunity to be a part of a great company
filled with some pretty awesome people.
I hope everyone enjoys the holiday season
and next week you will meet your new editor!
Also, don't forget to count the turkeys in our
section this week. See page 4 for details.


Chill out at ICE! over at the Gaylord Palms
Resort (now a Marriott), which is just the other
side of Interstate 4 from WDW if you use Exit
80A or 80B, depending on which park you visit
first. The Gaylord serves up hot chocolate as
you emerge from ICE! which is cooled to
9 degrees to maintain the carved ice sculptures.
This year you can even watch the ice carvers
from China at work. The Gaylord folks provide
you with heavy coats as you enter this ticketed
attraction or, you can join the Polar Bear club
and run through it in your
swimsuit. BRRRR! For "-
tickets, visit Christmas

MOVIESGO


OPENING THIS WEEK


The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug I
Runtime: 2 hr. 40 min. I Rated PG-13 fright-
ening images and fantasy action violence.
Having survived the first part of their unsettling
journey, Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) and his
companions (lan McKellen, Richard Armitage)


continue east. More dangers await them, including
the skin-changer Beorn and the giant spiders
of Milkwood. After escaping capture by the
dangerous Wood Elves, Bilbo and the dwarves
journey to Lake-town and, finally, to the Lonely
Mountain, where they face the greatest danger
of all: the fearsome dragon Smaug (Benedict
Cumberbatch).
Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas 11 hr. 45 min.


Rated PG-13 for crude humor, sexual references
and language.
Madea gets coaxed into helping a friend pay
her daughter a surprise visit in the country for
Christmas, but the biggest surprise is what they'll
find when they arrive. As the small, rural town
prepares for its annual Christmas Jubilee, new
secrets are revealed and old relationships are
tested while Madea dishes her own brand of
Christmas Spirit to all.

OTHER MOVIES PLAYING THIS WEEK

Out of the Furnace I Runtime: 1 hr. 56 min.

of the most ruthless crime rings in the Northeast
and mysteriously disappears. The police fail to
crack the case, so with nothing left to lose -
Russell takes matters into his own hands, putting
his life on the line to seek justice for his brother.

It's Gram & Cracker at the Gram Cracker Cafe


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
No, the name of the restaurant on Placida
Road in Englewood is not Graham Cracker Cafe.
The Gram stands for "Gram" as in grand-
mother, and the "Cracker" is for Florida cracker, a
name often associated with those who were born
and raised in Florida.
The Gram Cracker Cafe is a great place for
diners to enjoy tasty homemade meals and
desserts. "Gram" Lynne Miller does all the cooking
and baking. Husband, Steve, a Florida Cracker,
helps out as needed, as does her son, Rian.
Customer Barbara Gschwend loves the Gram


Cracker Cafe and says"the pies and bread
puddings are to die for." She often orders home-
made soup and a ham salad sandwich for lunch.
Regular customer, Mr. Parker, usually orders
vegetable quiche for lunch, or "whatever my wife
is in the mood for," he says. He, too, raves about
Lynne's specialty pies.
When asked how she learned to bake pies,
Lynne says she"learned through trial and error."
"If the filling doesn't spill over, it's not done. For
Thanksgiving I baked over 75 pies and delivered a
number of dinners, including a Thanksgiving dinner
with all the trimmings for a group of 25;' Lynn added.
Popular pies all year long include:


4:00 pm
Worship and Candlelight Service for all ages,
especially those with Children.
7:00 pm
Contemporary Worship and Candlelight Service.
Music of The Praise Band.

By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Luca Cassani and Antonio Pariano's restaurant,
Cassariano Italian Eatery, may have changed
locations in the past year, but apparently all of its
previous clientele remain fans of the contemporary
Italian-style eatery. Of course, it did move only
two doors down from its previous Venice Avenue
location.
The new space is about a thousand feet larger
and includes a bar and a private dining room, which
can seat about 45-50 diners for private functions.
Hall & Anderson, PA attorney Wayne Hall
and his wife Karen used to dine on occasion at
Cassariano when it was in the old space, but Hall
says he much prefers the size of the new version
of the restaurant.
"We didn't go there very often before, because
it was small and was always so crowded," Hall said.
"I need some space around me I'm a big guy."
But even though the restaurant gained more
space, they did not lose what they are best
known for their deliciously authentic Italian
food. April Mielchen, who works at Cassariano,
had a difficult time naming even just a couple of
guest favorites on the menu.
"Our veal is the best in town and we have a
wonderful polenta chicken with a gorgonzola sauce
that is gluten-free;' she said. "The salmon and tuna
are phenomenal and all the raviolis are delicious."
Hall admitted that he has actually liked
everything he's eaten at the restaurant, but for
-% 41)IV A


dinner on a recent visit there, he and his wife
said they had an especially delightful meal.
"For the appetizer, we had the Antipasto di
Mare, which is a ceviche-style dish," he said.
"Karen's entree was baked halibut in lemon
sauce with sliced potatoes, and I had the veal
ravioli Marsala, which was excellent."
Mielchen says that the restaurant gets fresh
fish in every other day, and great care is taken to
make sure every dish served lives up to their high
standards.
"We try to use as many organic ingredients as
we can," she said. "We get the best quality foods
we possibly can even the chocolate we serve
is the best chocolate. And our portions are big;
most people go home with leftovers."
With friendly staff, genuine Italian food and
its new spacious digs, Hall says that he and his
wife plan to go enjoy Cassariano's even more
often now.
"The newly remodeled Cassariano is very
tasteful and charming," he said. "It's unique and
doesn't have the feel of a chain restaurant. They
recognize you and make you feel at home instead
of feeling like a number."
Cassariano Italian Eatery is open from 11 a.m.
to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from 11 a.m.
to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and from 5 to
10 p.m. Sunday. It is at 313 West Venice Ave.,
on the Island. For more information, visit the
Facebook page or the website at www.
cassariano.com, or call 941-485-0507. You may
make reservations by phone or on the website.

"Christmas through the eyes of a child."
That is what organizers for the 35th annual
Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce
Christmas Parade hope to make happen.
When it comes to enjoying Christmas, no one
does it quite as well as a child.

with the Charlotte County Chamber, DointwP
says that patriotic organizations will WHJEN:ll
be well-represented at the event. beg nnling
"We have the color guard from liNORMTU
the US Paratroopers Port Charlotte ch to
coming," she said, adding that "the
Military Heritage Museum will be riding in a really
big hearse."
This year's Grand Marshall is Michele Valencourt,
who is scheduled to retire from her executive
director position at the Visual Arts Center at the
beginning of the year. The parade will include
festive floats and bands from Charlotte High
School and Punta Gorda Middle School, so expect
to hear Christmas carols aplenty.
Parkinson said that one thing that will be a
little different this year is that the starting point
for the parade participants has changed location.
"The new staging area will be at CPAC (the
Charlotte Performing Arts Center)," she said. "It
was scheduled to be at the high school."
It's not really that big of a change, since the


two locations actually share a parking lot. After
departure from the CPAC, the parade then heads
north on Taylor Street and winds up at the
Charlotte Harbor Event & Conference Center. The
judging platform is about halfway through the
route, in front of Centennial Bank.
Awards will be presented to first-, second- and
third-place winners in a variety of
0 categories: Best Float flatbedss or
[I trailers), Best Decorated Car or Pickup
alo BtBtilony Truck, and Best Marching/Performing
jymerc Unit. The winners will be announced
id and presented with their awards at
aniew the third Wednesday Chamber of
ta Gra Commerce Coffee on Dec. 18.

Doggy Daycare 6 Boarding

Where a dotan be a doge


By DEBBIE FLESSNER

There is just so:nmelhing majestic about a
Chrishnastiine boat parade.
When you see the boats festively decorated,
with the colored lights lwinkling in the water's
reflecli':,n, you realize jusl how special it Is ,:,to
live in a place where that is possible I:, di:,.
Twently-four years ago, that is pretty nllmuch the
thought pr':cess that wentl iniio planning and
implementing the very first Charlotte Harbor
Lighted Boat Parade.
'There were three men and their famiilies -
Tomni Little, Captain Al Ro:gels and lIJ:el Hyde,"
this year's parade chair Do:ug Buuck said. "They
decided that we have such a beautiful body :of
water here that we should decorate the boats
and have a parade."
The body :of water he was speaking of : was
the lovely Charlotte Harbor. This year, the very
popular holiday parade will be held at 6 p.m.
Sunday, Dec. 15.
One of: lhe reasons iI is 5)o well-allended is
that there are so' many vantage po'inlts froi
which :to view it. The parade route slarls al
Edgewaler Lake on the no:rlh side :of the Peace
River and crosses it south, then followss the
shoreline anld drops in on the Isles Yachtl Club and
Fishermen's Village before ending at Laishley
Park Municipal Marina.
'We can put 15 to 20 lholusand people oln the
shoreline (t:o watch)," Buuck said. "We have such
a unique situation here, because the harbor is
two miles ac(ro:ss. Our parade route is a little over


sevelln miles lolng."
II lakes appro':imalely 30 minutes for the
boats to: cross the harbor, which means that the
first parade slop at the Isles Yacht Club will :(tccur
at 6-30 p.mi. That is also where there will be a
private viewing area for abo:ul 150 people. II
costss 5 15 to: gain access : to t he viewing area, but
It is a great place froii which :to view the parade.
"Each boat has a regislrationl: fori with
inflir:rialtilin ab:otl the crew and the boals and
decorations," Buuct(k said. "As each boat (c,:mes by,
the ann,:,uncers talk about them, and if they have
a specific( theme, the ann,:,uncers will talk about
that."
The announcers for this year's parade will be
Seaview 1041.9 radio: personality Charlie Shoe,
Fishermens Village general manager Pattlli Allen,
and president ofl : PG Energy and Design Paul
Mar(cuzzO.
Just before the boats make their way iinto the
Laishley Park Municipal Marina, they IluistI pass
under the U.S. 11 bridge. Because there is 1 not
much clearance under there, the sailboats have
:to go: ahead and turn around before reaching the
marina, but Buucti(k says thal the viewing froi the
top :of the s:outhbo:und U.S. 11 bridge is fantlastic.
When asked :to name a couple of: deco:raled
boats that have really sl:too:d :out foi kr him :ver
the years, Buuc(k, without hesitlation, said that
original b:oal parade founder IJ:,el Hyde's b,:,oal
Kisnmel is year-after-year a show stopper.
"He has a huge Christmas tree that stands up
to 1: 0 feet tall," he said. "His is one :of the iio:sl
unique boals in our parade."

One of the best holiday bargains in town is
the chance to tour Ca'd'Zan, the former home of
John and Mable Ringling, at a bargain price.
Each Thursday, the John and Mable Museum
of Art, is open for Art After Five. Admission to the
museum is slashed from $25 to $10 for adults
and $5 for children.
Now through Dec. 26, there are major not-to-
be-missed holiday bonuses at the 5 p.m. to
8 p.m. Thursday night event.
The biggest bonus of all is the chance to see
Ca'd'Zan dressed to the nines in holiday finery.
There are garlands on banisters and balustrades,
wreaths on doors and a stunning 10-foot-tall
holiday tree, which is filled with hand-blown
glass ornaments, including several green glass
pickles. The pickles pay homage to John's German
ancestors. It is a German holiday tradition to
have a pickle on the Christmas tree. At Ca' d'Zan,
there are several hand-blown green glass pickles.
Decorative packages surround the tree.
Other ornaments honor the circus founded
by John and his brothers in Baraboo, Wis. John
brought the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and


Bailey Circus to Sarasota in 1927. It remained
there until 1959 when it left its 200-plus acre site
to head to Venice.
But there is more to be see throughout the
entire house at this season. Stunning at any time
with its stained glass windows on the bay, hand-
worked needlepoint chairs, painted ceiling by
artist Willy Pogany in the ballroom and marble
staircase, the home is especially festive for the
winter holidays. Carefully selected volunteers
install and remove the priceless ornaments and
other holiday decorations.
The art museum, which Ringling, as a real
estate mogul, built to lure real estate buyers from
the east coast to Sarasota, opened in 1929. It
too will be open to Thursday night Art After Five
visitors.
Thursday evening, tour the Icons of Style
exhibition in the Ulla R. and Arthur F. Searing
wing of the art museum and at 7 p.m. composer/
pianist Lera Auerbach will share film excerpts of
her work in the Historic Asolo Theater.
On Dec. 19, the theme will beYesterdayze,
featuring dance music on the Bolger Campiello,
with a cash bar and food available for purchase.
The Bolger Campiello is immediately south of
Ca' d'Zan, along the Bayfront. It is just the place to


I I IJfiL


sit and enjoy the sunset on Sarasota Bay.
But then so is the terrace behind Ca d Zan.
Ca' d'Zan also will be open for Art After
Five on Dec. 26, according to information
on its website.
The John and Mable Ringling Museum
of Art is at 5401 Bay Shore Road,
Sarasota, across from the Florida State
University Center for the Performing
Arts, home of the Asolo Rep Company.
Regular admission to the museum
complex is $25 for adults, with discounts for
students with ID. Each Monday, admission is free
to the art museum alone. Admission to Art After
Five is $10 for adults each Thursday after 5 p.m.
For more information, call 941-359-5700 or

'The Flashbacks' entertain with classic hits from the past


EIi'-. December 11 17,2013


By SHIRLEY GEORGE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
When Sonny and Sabella Gioia got together
18 years ago, and married five years later,
neither one of them knew the other was
musical. But they soon learned that their
beautiful voices blended, accomplishing perfect
harmony on and off stage.
For 15 years, the duo has been rockin' houses,
singing tribute songs from the '50s, '60s, '70s,
and Motown. Known as"The Flashbacks'," Sonny
and Sable (Sabella's nickname) indeed take
audiences back with their immense ability to
perform a vast variety of about 1,200 songs.
Their goal is to have the best sound possible
that is accomplished using the best of today's
technologies, orchestrated and musically
arranged through the keyboard by Sable, giving
a full-band sound.
Among their repertoire of songs are tributes
to legendary artists such as Frankie Valli, Bob
Dylan, Little Anthony, Gary Puckett, Leon
Redbone, Tony Bennett,
Billy Joel, Elton
John, Platters,
Supremes, and
many more.


According to the duo's
website, "If you like
your entertainment
straight up -
no painted
faces, no
acrobats,
no mime
-just
pure talent
performing
unfor-
gettable
music, vocal
impersonations
and slight comedy,
The Flashbacks is
the one show you must
see. We cater to requests playing
people's favorite songs to listen to, dine to,
and dance to."
"A full musical sound is important to me.
I like having the same perfect sound as you
originally heard on the radio, and I enjoy
seeing people's faces when I sing songs they
can relate to, and 'flashback'to yesterday',"
Sonny said.

PHOTO PROVIDED


Sonny and Sabella Gioia
have been rockin'
houses, singing
tribute songs
from the '50s,
'60s,'70s, and
Motown for
15 years.
Sonny had
a near-fatal
accident
where a head
injury caused
S him to lose all
memory of lyrics
and playing music
but he overcame it and
learned it all over again.


Born in New Jersey, Sonny moved to
Cleveland, Ohio, in 1959. He first appeared on
stage at the age of 12.
"After hearing all of the applause, I was
hooked,' he said.
Sonny performed as the lead singer in three
of his own bands in Cleveland during the
'60s. His band "Sands of Time"opened up for
such acts as "Terry Knight and the Pack'," later
known as"Grand Funk Railroad,"and P.F. Sloan
who wrote such hits as "Eve of Destruction',"
and "Secret Agent Man."
Sonny dropped out of the music industry to
raise a family, and was a successful business
owner for more than four decades. After
re-entering the music field, he decided he
didn't want a large band as he once had
because although they provide great sound,
"the downside is dealing with all of the
band members, personalities, mood swings,
personal problems, and scheduling conflicts."
"It took some real convincing on
my behalf to get Sable involved '
in music again. But it has
certainly paid off. I could not
have chosen a better musical
partner," Sonny said. ,--


Born and raised in Cleveland, Sable played
several musical instruments and :took ballet,
tap and jazz lessons. She aspired to: be a ball-
room dancer, but she pursued other careers.
A miakeutp artist by trade, Sable enjoyed
several other career choices including retail,
tax eaininer with the IRS and even owned anl
image coinstiltant studio. She also worked inI
the building industry, where she met and fell
in love with Sonny.
In 1997, the couple wanted I: to fulfill their
dream :4 living in the paradise :4 of Florida.
Butl Sonny had a near-fatal accident, and
sustained a serious brain injury.
Although we downplayed Sonnly s head
injury, It was so5' severe he lost all meminory o:f
lyrics and playing music. He had to, learn all
over again, and he did, Sable said. We finally
moved Ito Florida in 1999, and were married
on Blind Pass Beach in Manasola Key:
The couple fell in Ilove with Port Charlotte
where they boughl an as is house.
We were known as the crazy couple who:
bo:ughl the nasty yellow house. It was m,:re
filing than we anliipaled, Sable said. We
planned : to f. iti up, stay a few years, sell It,
and build our dream house, but 15 years later,
we re still here because we love the area:
The couples coinbined faimlily consists ,:f a
son, who lives inI Tampa, a daughter, who lives
in Cleveland, eight grandchildren, and three
great-grandchildren. They spend every August
in Cleveland visiting with family.
In addition tII mIanly local gigs, the dluo has
perforirmed inI variolts venues ini Ohio and at
Bally s in Las Vegas. Upcolinng performances
will be at VelI(e American Legion Post 159,
Allegro Bistro, alnd St:lh Veni(e Yachl Club inI

popularity of jazz along the Cultural Coast.
The club will add a five-concert series at the
260-seat Glenridge Performing Arts Center.
Acoustically one of the best venues for
music and live theater, the Glenridge is easily
accessible off Interstate 75 by taking Exit 205,
which is Clark Road in Sarasota.
The series begins at 8 p.m. Dec. 13 with Nate
Najar's Jazz Holiday featuring special guest jazz
guitarist Harry Allen, who has more than 20
albums and has performed across America and
internationally.
Guitarist Larry Coryell follows at 8 p.m. Jan. 11.
In a release from the club, Coryell is described as
"the most innovative and original guitarist since
Charlie Christian," according to Whitney Balliett.
Cynthia Sayer & Her Hot Jazz Trio have been
booked for concerts at 8 p.m. Jan. 18 and at 2 p.m.
Jan. 19. Sayer sings and plays the four-string banjo.
She and her group perform classics, hot jazz and
tango. Performing with her will be clarinet player
Allan Vache and Jay Mueller on string bass on
Jan. 18 with Don Mopsick on bass on Jan. 19.


The star of public radio's Riverwalk Jazz
show, the Jim Cullen Jazz Band, will play at the
Glenridge at 8 p.m. on March 15. According to
a release, the band will play the sounds of Jelly
Roll Morton, Original Dixieland Jazz Band, New
Orleans Rhythm Kings, King Oliver Creole Jazz Band,
Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, and will have a
heavy emphasis on Bix Beiderbecke and Hoagy
Carmichael. The band has played at Carnegie Hall,
the Kennedy Center, Wolf Trap and major festivals.
Closing out the series at 8 p.m. April 5 is jazz
guitarist Howard Alden who plays a seven-string
guitar and has performed with Woody Herman
and Dick Hyman to name a few. Performing
with him will be jazz pianist Lenore Raphael.
The Glenridge is at 7333 Scotland Way, Sarasota.
For tickets, call 941-552-5325 or visit GPACtix.com.
The club has plans for at least 17 week-day
afternoon concerts at the Venice and Englewood
art centers during the coming season. Admission
to those concerts is $5 per person for members
and $10 for nonmembers. Membership in the
South County Jazz Club is $25 per year.

Editor's Corner

Think local and
handmade gifts for
the holiday season
ike many residents, my holi-
day gift budget is more limited
than I like. Over the past few
years, I have been gravitating more
and more to the handmade side of
gift-giving. One of the things I like
about handmade gifts is the time,
energy, and hopefully, love, that goes
into making gifts for the important
people in your life.
For instance, my friend Renee and
I don't exchange gifts, but every year
I eagerly await her Christmas cookie
tin. If I'm feeling really generous,
I'll actually tell the rest of the family
about the tin, too, before I eat all the
cookies.
On the other hand, nothing says
"I care for you" quite like the yearly
promise that I will not bake gifts for
people. Although to be fair, my vegan
cupcakes are quite yummy,
and are definitely not on the approved
diabetic diet plan. Candy bacon? Not
so much a success, but we already
talked about that. Ditto for anything
that requires sharp objects or a glue
gun.
So I usually reciprocate with hand-
made spa gifts, such as bath salts
or sugar scrubs. I've already got two
requests for the scrubs, and they're
easy to customize with high-quality
essential oils.
Some of my favorite gifts to get, are
coincidentally, also handmade. My
Mom gifted me with a bar of goat's
milk and rose soap awhile back, and
I loved it. As I get older, I appreciate
practical, yet indulging, gifts more and
more. Although Mom purchased the
soap in Myakka City, I also found a lo-
cal soap maker at the recent Parkside
festival last month. So I could buy
local and handmade. What a bonus.
When it comes to finding some
last-minute items on your holiday list,
you may choose to instead collect the
family or a bunch of pals and have a
gift-making night. Create memories
and gifts at the same time isn't that
what the holiday spirit is all about?

Obee's celebrates
eight great years
in the community
By NATALIE SHARBAUGH
HERALD CORRESPONDENT
It's almost lunchtime on a weekday,
and the Obee's at Schoolhouse Square
in Charlotte Harbor begins to come
to life. As the smell of fresh food fills
the air, customers and employees
exchange greetings on a first-name
basis as if they've arrived for a gather-
ing of family and friends. For Barbara
Perna, that's exactly how it feels each
day. On Jan. 1, it will mark the eighth
year that the Perna family has owned
the Obee's franchise.

TEAM PARKSIDE
The Charlotte County library on
Aaron Street in Port Charlotte's Parkside
District has something you have to see
to believe: a display of quilts that look
like paintings.
The quilts create a vignette of life
along the Peace River, depicting trees,
birds, greenery, children, sailboats,
familiar buildings even an under-
water scene, complete with mangrove
roots and a school of snapper all
in exquisite detail. The quilters are
members of the Peace River Quilters
Guild. They know the river well, coming
together from Port Charlotte, Punta
Gorda, Arcadia and Cape Coral. In
North Port, snowbirds from Indiana and
Massachusetts come back winters to
quilt with the guild.
The exhibit is called "The Peace River
Runs Through It." The exhibit, as hung,
shows a vivid blue quilted river that does
connect and run through the various
quilted scenes.
"Our library is so fortunate to be able
to share this masterful artistry," said
Claudia Richardson of the library staff.

Pirate JV boys start
over with new team
By CHUCK BALLARO
HERALD SPORTS WRITER
Last season, the Port Charlotte High
School JV boys basketball team came
within one point of a perfect season.
But as with many junior varsity
teams, things change quickly. The
players move up to varsity or decide to
try something else.
That's the situation head coach
Leighton Bowie is in, and unlike last
season when he knew who he could
rely on, he's still trying to figure out
what he has.
Tyler Breton, Marcus Delisca and
Keyshawn McCloud, three key compo-
nents of that squad, are now on a very
deep varsity squad.

Behavioral Health
seeks guardian advocates

Charlotte Behavioral Health Care
Crisis Stabilization Unit is in extreme
need of Guardian Advocates. GAs will
be appointed by the court to act as an
informed decision-maker for a person
who has been deemed incompetent
to consent to his own mental health
treatment. They will serve on a volun-
tary basis as needed for patients who
do not have a close family member
willing or able to make medical and
psychiatric treatment decisions on
their behalf.
GAs usually are granted authority to
provide or revoke consent for general
medical and psychiatric medications.
They will seek to provide informed
decisions regarding a patient's treat-
ment, and protect the patient's rights.
GAs are required to be trained in
duties and submit to a background
investigation. They serve approxi-
mately three to four hours monthly,
depending on the client's needs. For
more information, call Jessica K. Boles
at 941-347-6407.

El Jobean


residents prepare


for the holidays

PAT SPENCE
EYE ON EL JOBEAN

Happy holidays to everyone.
Turkey day is over and the sale
seekers have survived Black
Friday. Now for the serious work.
Please, if you have extra change in
your pocket or vehicle, drop it in one
of the red buckets for the Salvation
Army.
Or buy a couple of toys (not
stuffed animals or balls) and put
them in the Toys for Tots boxes set
up all around town. You cannot
imagine the happiness you will bring
to a less fortunate child. Buy a cou-
ple of two-fors at the grocery store
and put them in the collection boxes
or take to any church, including your
own. Your little donation will help
greatly.
Don't forget the animals, wild and
domesticated. Shelters of all kinds
need your help. Food, blankets and
towels even the vets could use
these items for the animals they
help.
This time of year should be about
giving, not to the haves, but to the
have-nots.
Charlotte County abounds with
holiday entertainment. Reinforce
the spirit by taking in a show or two.
Not all are for big money; most of the
churches have free programs, or may-
be the big fee of a can of food. Call
around; don't sit home and wallow.
Our sympathy goes out to the
family of Kathy Robinson; she fought
the hard fight.
Congratulations to Stephen
Deutsch on the marriage of his son.
The Annual "For the Love of Kids"
dinner will be at the Convention
Center, Thursday Dec. 19 at 6 p.m.
The children receive their invitations
from the school, but if your child or
children need a Christmas dinner,
come on down. Dinner for the fam-
ily, a visit with Santa and a toy for
the children under 13. We do need
some volunteers, but no cookies or
desserts. This is a free evening.
Do not forget the El Jobean
parade on Saturday, Dec. 14 at
10 a.m. Please tell your friends and
neighbors. All are welcome.

PEACE: Port Charlotte Library hosts quilt exhibit celebrating local water heritage


FROM PAGE 1

Now able to view the entire length of
the quilted river from her Information
Desk, she adds, "People need to see this
for themselves."
How was such an exhibit possible?
In an accompanying booklet about
the exhibit, Pat Haas, a Port Charlotte
quilter and guild curator explains.
"I thought it would be fun to do a
series of quilts with 25 guild members,


each making a picture of something
that might be found along our Peace
River. My co-chairman and I took 25
pieces of paper and drew a wavy line
across all of them. We decided how
wide the river should be on each side of
each quilt so they would correspond or
connect when hung," Haas said.
"This was so much fun," guild
president Pat Brettschneider said.
"We each got our sketch of the river
and a patch of blue river fabric. Then


we were turned loose to develop our
own ideas."
When finished, the quilts were hung
side by side last February at the Peace
River Quilt Festival in the Charlotte
Harbor Events and Conference Center.
The river view stretched 50 feet.
"Yes, it was a challenge," says
Brettschneider. "But these are fabulous
quilters. Last year, we gave away 350
quilts to nonprofit organizations to
meet needs."

Pirates roll over Mantas 52-18


By STEVE KNAPP
HERALD SPORTS WRITER

After having two games canceled and
a close two-point win in their season
opener, the Port Charlotte boys JV bas-
ketball team was happy to have a game
like they had at Lemon Bay Dec. 4.
The Pirates jumped out to a 14-2 first
period lead which they bumped up
to 30-9 at the half. The starters found
their way to the bench and the bench
players piled up a lot of minutes on the
court. They also kept on scoring and
built up a 47-15 lead going into the
final 8 minutes. The final period was
played with a running clock.
Leading scorer with 14 points in an
abbreviated time on the court was
sophomore Matt Washington.
"In a game like tonight it is a lot of
fun because we don't have to worry
about mistakes, just have fun playing
basketball. I don't mind not playing all
the time as long as we win, that's what
it is all about," Washington said.
Behind Washington with 8 points was
freshman Mark Schelm.

"I like games like this because it is a
lot more fun and relaxed and it boosts
your confidence in yourself and the
team," said Schelm.
Ten of the 14 players on Leighton
Bowie's roster scored against the
Mantas. They are young, with only five
sophomores on the team, which means
they will only get better over time.
Since the football season just ended,
there will probably be two or three
more players joining the team in a few
days.
"One thing we need to work on
yet is team chemistry. Since so many
of us are new, we need to work on
knowing who to pass to and where our
teammates will be. We just have to get
to know each other a little better and
what we can do. We should be pretty
good once we do that," said Schelm.
Bowie said, "This feels good. Last
night we got behind 10-0 to begin the
game and came back to lead by as
much as 11 at one point. Then they
(Venice) kept coming back so we just
won by two points. Tonight we had the
chance to put everybody in the game

and see what they could do. This year's
team is quicker than the one we had
last year (only lost one game last year).
We don't have any of those "half court
monsters" that can do everything with
the ball. We have to work on our
rebounding and making better
decisions under pressure, but I'm very
happy with this team."

Port Charlotte JV basketball player Matt Washington races down the court with a Venice defender Port Charlotte JV basketball player Jimmy Tran tries to make a move against a Venice defender
on his back during a Dec. 3 game. during their Dec. 3 game.

PIRATE: JV basketball team may not have a standout player, but that's a good thing


FROM PAGE 1
Also, the best freshman player,
Sean Price, has forgone junior varsity
entirely and is already contributing to
the big club.
So, while it's hard to believe Bowie's
squad has another 18-1 season in
them, since everyone last year's starting
five is gone, they sure showed some of
the resilience last season's team had by
erasing a seven-point fourth quarter
deficit to earn a 58-56 victory over
Venice to increase its record to 2-0.
"Defense, that's all it is. A lot of
them have stepped up to take on the
challenge applying pressure and they
stepped up to the plate," Bowie said.
In other words, it isn't as though
Bowie had to teach his new kids how to
dribble.
The young Pirates have several
players who can bring the ball up.
Zach Specht and Matt Washington are
two returning guards who can handle
the ball and add scoring punch. Justin
Madina, Jimmy Tran, Isaac Almanzar
and Andrew Griffiths also get playing
time in the backcourt.
The Pirates don't quite have the
size of last year, but Kyle Todd could
become a formidable force in the
middle as he was able to get big baskets
underneath in the win over the Indians.
Chase Robertson can come on and
give a few quality minutes in the paint
as well.
Clayton Morris, Daniel Childers,
Cody Martell, Kobe Jackson and Mark
Schelry make up the platoon at the
forward position, but as of yet, none of
them has broken away from the pack.
That would be a big deal for a team
that's still looking for a go-to person that
Washington has the potential to be-
come, especially since the varsity squad
will be looking for big men next year.


Port Charlotte JV boys basketball player Matt Washington moves the ball down the court with
Kyle Todd following during their game against Venice on Dec. 3.


'A lot of the kids haven't played
in actual game situations, but
they have to step up because I
expect that from them," Bowie
said.
As a result, outside of
Washington, Bowie really doesn't
have a player to look out for, at
least right now.
"That's the problem. We don't
really have that one powerhouse
that does anything and every-
thing. Everyone is just straight
right across the board," Bowie
said.
That may not be a bad thing,
since this is now a team effort,
Bowie said. It needs to be five
players who are consistent, and
after a couple games, he's gotten
that. Hopefully, he can get that
for 17 more.

hen it comes to the holidays,
every family has its own tradi-
tions. My family is no different.
Following our Thanksgiving festivi-
ties, we head back to my parents' home
in Central Florida, where my dad and
I take turns crawling into the attic to
retrieve boxes upon boxes of Christmas
decorations for the house and yard.
First to go up is the nativity scene,
followed by the Christmas tree and
then my dad's train set, which is placed
around the tree on a platform my dad
made a few years ago. While the yard
typically requires a full day of tinkering,
the inside of the home is done by mid-
night on Thanksgiving, mainly because
everyone in the family has a job and
works together to complete the mission.
But when family time is over and it's
time to head back to where we're all
from, the task of decorating is daunting.
Especially when your handy helper is
away on business, and you are left to
decorate the house all by yourself.
Although this year's display took a
couple of nights to complete, I got it
done. Wine helped, as did the many
wonderful sights I keep seeing around
Punta Gorda this time of year.
It seems everywhere I look I am


greeted by the merriest sights of the
season. Downtown Punta Gorda is
twinkling with bright lights, as are the
rafters at Fishermen's Village, where
1 million lights are on display. I laugh
every day on my way into work as I
pass my neighbor's Santa-embellished
manatee mailbox, and I regularly catch
myself sending photos of decorated
sailboats to my friends up north.
Punta Gorda sure is spirited this
time of year, and that's what this week's
Punta Gorda Herald is about. In this
edition you will read about the hard
work and history behind some of our
area's greatest holiday decorations, as
well as some of the people who made
that twinkle happen.
If you have planned a holiday light
display that you would like to share
with the public, email a location (street
address and town/area), along with
a brief description of your featured
attractions, to Marion Putman, assistant
Charlotte Sun editor, at marionmput
man@gmail.com.
The listings will appear in the daily
paper, inviting the public to view your
family's holiday traditions.
For more information, call Putman at
941-206-1183.

PG celebrations hit high note this weekend


his weekend is the Punta Gorda
Chamber of Commerce's annual
Lighted Boat Parade, which sets
sail at dusk on Dec. 15 from Edgewater
Lake on the northern side of the harbor.
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."
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 interested in being in the parade,
visit the same page on the chamber's
website, where registration forms are
available. It is free to participate, and the
chamber even throws a special party for
each boat captain and first mate after
the event. This year's party is set for Dec.
16.
Today (Dec. 11) is the mandatory
captain's meeting, which will begin at 7
p.m. in the Laishley Community Room
in the Laishley Marina Building, next to
the Laishley Crab House. We hope to see
you there.
Fishermen's Village, 1200W 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, 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,
hear live narration as the boats sail past
and enjoy 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.
The weekend will also feature
the Charlotte County Chamber of
Commerce's 35th annual Christmas
Parade on Dec. 14. The event starts at
noon from Charlotte High School, 1250


John R. Wright is president of the
Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce.

engaging students in programs that build
science, engineering and technology skills.
The competition season is from
November through January, and students
on the Veteran Team and Rookie Team are
excited for the challenge of competition
this school year.
Jacob English, a sophomore at Charlotte
High, said he enjoys "the engineering
challenges and basically just challenging
yourself to go above and beyond what you
did last year and the year before."
English added that his favorite project
this school year has been the 3D modeling
the teams have been working on at the


school.
According to www.intorobotics.com, 3D
modeling adds value to the development
process since this is the phase when
robots take shape for the first time. The
3D modeling will give the students a new
outlook on the robots, and they will be
able to experiment with new things.
Tanner Dehays, a junior, is a part of the
Rookie Team and had the opportunity
of winning a competition by making the
fastest robot in school last year.
"I find it interesting," he said.
"Engineering and coming up with ways
to overcome certain obstacles with
limitations."

their TV production class. Often, students find
their phones and computers to be the largest
distraction.


By ALLISON LEONARD
CHS SENIOR
ne of the qualities nearly all
teenagers possess at one point in
time or another is procrastination.
Many high school students find them-
selves wasting time on daily tasks, includ-
ing homework and chores, by letting their
attention drift to other topics.
While there is no solid answer as to why
teens waste time, several Charlotte High
School students offer insight into the
topic of procrastination.
"I waste because I like to procrasti-
nate, and I don't want to do my home-
work right away," said senior Skylar


Varone-Chenard.
Some students say it's simply not their
fault. They get distracted from their pri-
orities and, before they know it, the hours
have wasted away. Students admit that
they have so many other things going on
in their lives that it is sometimes difficult
to concentrate.
"I waste time because I just get distract-
ed," Alyssa Balcomb, a senior, said.
One way students lose their focus is
from the various social networks available
- Facebook, Instagram, Vine, Tumblr and
Twitter. One of the most popular of these
is Twitter. With the constant updates,
many students find it difficult to put their
phone down.


"Twitter is my biggest distraction
because I follow interesting accounts
and tweet lots of jokes," said senior Jake
Christie.
Although these students admit to
procrastination, they can find ways to
avoid wasting time.
Planning out your day or prioritizing
can help in avoiding procrastination
and making the best out of your time.
Thinking ahead and chunking out your
day may be helpful when avoiding long,
tedious tasks.
Also, it is easier to conquer a small
task than a large one, and the feeling of
accomplishment is worth the lack of
procrastination.

Rudi Wolfahrt, Punta Gorda Middle School
drama teacher, poses for a photo with several
students in his drama class who qualify for
the state competition at Eastern Florida State
College in Melbourne. In the top row, from left,
are Kaitlyn Brus, Meghan Hagerty and Taylor
Wikoff. In the front row, from left, are Gabby
Sherkus, Kendall Gill, Nicole Berg and Olivia
Almer.


at Punta Gorda Middle School. The
students, who received a superior
rating at the district-level drama
competition at Oak Hammock Mid-
dle School in Fort Myers recently,
qualified to advance to the state
level.
The state competition, called
"Second Rating to the Right and
Straight onto Superior," will be held
on Feb. 7-8, 2014, at the King Center
at Eastern Florida State College in
Melbourne.
The students will participate in
the following events: monologue,
duet acting, solo musical theatre,
small group musical, scene writing
and improvisation. The events are
judged by people involved in various
areas of the performing arts.
The Junior Thespian Club was
formed 5 years ago by drama teach-
er Rudi Wolfahrt.
According to Wolfahrt, the club
met before or after regular school
hours. Last year, however, the
PGMS principal agreed to Wolfahrt's
request for the club to be included

in the curriculum during regular
school hours. There are 26 students
in the class.
Four of the students who will
attend the state competition eagerly
shared the performances they will
present at the state competition.
Taylor Wikoff, wearing his fa-
vorite T-shirt with the logo, "Keep
Calm and Be Dramatic, Punta
Gorda Middle School," will present
solo and duet musicals and scene
writing.
"When I was in first-grade, my
parents took me to see the "Lion
King" at the Barbara (B.) Mann
Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers,
and I was captivated. Since my
goal is to become a working actor,
I want to attend the American and
Dramatic Academy College and
Conservatory of the Performing Arts


"I really like this class; drama is
a good way to express yourself in
many ways," she said.
Olivia Almer began acting at
the age of 5 when she performed
in Lemon Bay High School's "101
Dalmatians," and continued acting
in elementary school plays.
"I like comedy because it makes
people laugh and forget about prob-
lems in their daily lives," she said.
Almer will present scene writing,
duet acting and improvisation.
Meghan Hagerty will participate
in duet acting, improvisation and
scene writing.
"I know I can speak for the whole
class," she said. "Mr. Wolfahrt is our
favorite teacher, and drama is our
favorite class."
Wolfahrt claims that he loves the
theater, has been involved with
drama since high school and was
motivated to become a teacher by
his high school drama teacher.
"I'm very proud of the students in
the PGMS drama class," he stated.
"They surpass my expectations all
the time."

scissors, Shepard thanked everyone
for coming and asked that his "Punta
Gorda athletes" provide the countdown
so he could cut the ribbon, officially
opening the doors to his new business.
"I want to congratulate you on your
new endeavor," Jose Morillo, chairman
of the board for the Punta Gorda
Chamber of Commerce, said. "I am in
the healthcare business, and I can tell
you that there is nothing more precious
than health."
A 10-year veteran of the Santa Cruz,
Calif., police department, Shepard and
his family moved here three months
ago. He said that he has been involved
in personal training for years.
"The birthplace for CrossFit is Santa
Cruz, Calif.," he said. "I had the luck
and opportunity to be around it and
learned all about it because my good
friends owned the gym. Now there are
about 7,000 gyms worldwide."
Shepard said that his workouts
change every day, and the lineup in-
cludes beginner classes, regular classes
and, after the first of the year, longevity
classes for those individuals over 50
years of age.


"We offer that because some peo-
ple like to train with their peers," he
explained.
Workouts begin with a 20-minute
warm-up, Shepard said, that could
include anything from yoga to calis-
thenics. From there, clients participate
in a program that could last anywhere
from 5 to 20 minutes. They could be
using the rowing or biking machines,
treadmills, be doing push-ups or even
jogging.
"We like to mix it up," he said. "There
is a new stimulus all the time. I don't
want people to get bored."
For $130 a month, patrons can have
unlimited workouts that include the
guided workout and a skilled portion as
well. The gym also offers one-on-one
personal training. CrossFit Punta Gorda
is open Mondays through Saturdays,
with various group classes available.
The afternoon is set aside for personal
training.
"Workouts last about an hour," he
said.
Shepard said that they are excited
with their new business and about their
move to Punta Gorda.
"It appealed to us," he said. "We think
it will be a great place to raise our kids."

RIGHT: City crew
members have spent
countless hours
transforming downtown
Punta Gorda
into a spectacle
of lights this season.

the extra bit of sparkle coming from the
garland-wrapped light poles through-
out downtown Punta Gorda. Topped
with glittering snowflakes, the poles
line the walkways and lead walkers to
the true beacon of the city's holiday
decorations the 32-foot Christmas
tree on the corner of Taylor Street and
Marion Avenue.
The artificial tree is in its third year
in the downtown area and is the result
of a massive fundraising effort taken
on by citizens and community organi-
zations. The tree, mimicking those that
are sprinkled throughout Disney parks,
came with a price tag of about $22,000,
with ornaments costing about $3,000.
As the size suggests, constructing
the enormous tree takes some time.
Since the official tree lighting for the
city's tree, as well as the Downtown
Merchants Association's tree across
from the Old Courthouse, was set for
Nov. 21, city crew members had to get
a head start. After all, nobody wants
to disappoint the crowd expected to
gather for the evening's Holly Days
festivities, which coincides annually
with the Third Thursday of the Month

"They wanted the tree up by then,"
said Art Brewster, the supervisor of the
city's Parks and Grounds Department
and the Facilities Department. "We
thought it's no use just doing the tree,
so we did it all."
Doing it all required more than
popping up the towering tree, but also
decorating the nearly 400 light poles
throughout the area. The 10-member
crew began decking the streets with
merriment in October and finished

before Thanksgiving weekend.
They have also tackled a couple of
other popular spots along Punta Gorda
roadways, including the three bridges
leading to Ponce de Leon Park, both
sides of Royal Poinciana, Monaco Drive
and "loads of other players," Brewster
said. City Hall and the City Annex
Building are other highlights of the
team's decorating abilities.
"It's a lot of work, especially when
you have to do your regular work as
well," Brewster said. There's also the
issue of making sure the lights stay on,
a feat considering the thousands of
light bulbs the team is monitoring.
"It's constant maintenance all the
way through the season until we take
them down," he said.
Despite the extra responsibility,
Brewster said his team doesn't seem to
mind too much.
"The guys enjoy doing it," he said
with a chuckle.
As for how long residents and visitors
can expect to enjoy the sights of Punta
Gorda, Brewster said that's up to City
Manager Howard Kunik. "Last year,
the merchants asked to keep them up
longer," Brewster said, adding it was
about three weeks into January when
the lights came down.

A 'Festival of Lights'
We would get a straight ticket to
the naughty list if we didn't mention
the city's most sparkling asset to the
holiday season Fishermen's Village.
For the past 7 years, the outdoor
mall and marina, located at 1200 W
Retta Esplanade, brings a piece of the
North Pole to Punta Gorda by decking
the rafters with 1 million lights and an
assortment of lighted attractions for
diners, customers and mall-walkers to
enjoy during the season.
And this year is no different.
"It's our way of giving back to the
community for the support they give us
all year long," explained Kathy Burnam,
the marketing director of Fishermen's
Village.
General manager Patti Allen is credit-
ed with coming up with the idea to turn
Fishermen's Village into a Christmas vil-
lage all those years ago, and each year
the display has grown. New this year is
aWhoville-inspired area right as people
walk into the mall.
"It's beautiful scenery for taking
photos," Burnam said, adding that the
area features the notorious Grinch and

More trees have also been added
into the spirited mix, as has a team of
lighted dolphins charged with the duty
of pulling Santa's sleigh. This photo-op
is set up outside Palms on the Pier.
Work started early for the elaborate
display at Fishermen's Village, with
workers creating the decoration plan
in August and beginning to deck the
rafters as early as September.
Since hitting the "on" button on Nov.
16, Burnam said employees have re-
ceived excellent feedback from visitors.
"We had the largest lighting in the
history of the Festival of Lights," she
said. "The people were amazed at the
decorations, they loved all the lights,
they loved all the colors, they love
Whoville and they loved Santa."
The spectacle has kept folks coming
back for more, and traffic has been
pretty steady all season. Burnam added
Black Friday was one of the busiest
days they've seen in years.
If you haven't checked it out yet,
make plans to do so. The lights run
all day and night, and elements of the
display reach beyond the inside of the
mall. The shopping hours of operation
are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday
through Saturdays and from noon until
6 p.m. on Sundays.

Christmas Card Lane
In terms of growing Punta Gorda
traditions, the Christmas Card Lane is a
must-see attraction.
Inspired by the highly successful lane
in Arcadia, the folks with the Punta
Gorda Kiwanis Club sought out to
create their own one-of-a-kind display
right here in Punta Gorda. Now in its
15th year, the Kiwanis' Christmas Card
Lane features 39 uniquely decorated
holiday cards on display at Gilchrist
Park.
"More than anything, it is a com-
munity service," said club president
Mike Ruiz, who is a retail advertising
manager for the Sun. "We are more
than happy to keep doing this. People
look forward to participating in this
each year delivering their messages
to people in the community. And the
community is used to seeing the cards.
It gets bigger year after year."
To participate, organizations, busi-
nesses and individuals can purchase
a card for $70. The cards are then
decorated and handed back to the
club. Members are then responsible for
installing the cards at the park.
In an effort to spur creativity among
the participants, the club arranges for

Paget's disease features

bone building gone wild


DEAR DR. ROACH: For
several years, when I have
had blood drawn it has
shown an elevation in the
alkaline phosphatase. It
has been as high as 377 in
recent tests. I have had the
test to see if it was from the
liver, but it was all right. I
recently had a bone scan,
and the doctor suspects
Paget's disease and is
referring me to a bone
oncologist. Do you have
any comments in regard to
this? -D.C.A.
ANSWER: Alkaline
phosphatase is an enzyme
that, when found in the
blood, usually comes from
the liver. Conditions such
as gallstones or others
that affect bile flow are the
most likely to increase the
level in the blood. However,
alkaline phosphatase may
also come from the bone,
and in this case, Paget's
disease is the most likely
cause. Your doctor may
have determined where
the alkaline phosphatase is
coming from by ordering
a special isoenzyme blood
test. The bone scan is usu-
ally diagnostic for Paget's.
Paget's disease is
thought to result from
abnormal osteoclasts, the
cells that normally remod-
el bone. The osteoclasts
break down bone, and
osteoblasts build it back
up again. Bone needs to
be replaced over time to
repair any microscopic
cracks that may have
formed. Without normal
bone turnover, the bones
become brittle.
In Paget's disease, the
bone remodeling in one
or more particular areas
is excessive, causing bone
buildup. The most com-
mon sites are the skull,
spine, pelvis and leg bones.
Paget's disease is very effec-
tively treated with medi-
cations such as zoledronic
acid (Reclast or Zometa).
Not all people with Paget's
need treatment; however, a
high alkaline phosphatase
level usually is a reason to
treat.
DEAR DR. ROACH: I
am 77, female and in great
health except for being
diagnosed with achalasia.
I know it is rare, and I was
happy to find out why
my digestive system had
discomfort. Do yoga twists
or shoulder stands worsen
this? It seems worse when I
do these. E.H.
ANSWER: Achalasia is a
disease of abnormal move-
ment in the esophagus, the
muscular tube that carries
food from the back of your
throat to the stomach. It is
caused by damage to the
nerves in the esophagus,
possibly from destruction


Dr. Roach

by the body's immune
system. Because of the
nerve damage, the food
gets stuck in the esopha-
gus, leading to difficulty
swallowing and vomiting of
undigested food. Both sol-
ids and liquids are affected,
as opposed to esophageal
cancer, in which the
problem is mostly solids.
Gravity helps us swallow,
so being upside down
will make gravity work
against you, and I would
expect the condition to
worsen with yoga positions
that turn the esophagus
upside down. I wouldn't
recommend those types of
positions, especially since
they may cause or worsen
vomiting.
Treatment of achalasia
should be done by an
expert in the condition,
and may include dilation
of the esophagus, injection
with Botox into the muscle
or surgery.
DEAR DR. ROACH: What
is the difference between a
CT scan and an MRI? B.
ANSWER: A CT (com-
puterized tomography)
scan uses X-rays to create
an image that looks like
a slice through the body,
head or a limb. The
quality of the picture is
excellent, but it has much
more radiation than a
regular X-ray. An MRI uses
powerful magnetic waves
to create an image that
also looks like a slice. It
uses no radiation. CT scans
are cheaper and faster, in
general. One isn't necessar-
ily "better" than the other.
MRI tends to be better for
looking at soft tissues, like
the brain, and CT usually is
better for looking at bones.
Your doctor, or the consult-
ing radiologist, can tell you
which is more likely to be
better in your individual
situation.
Dr Roach regrets that he
is unable to answer individ-
ual letters, but will incor-
porate them in the column
whenever possible. Readers
may email questions to
ToYourGoodHealth@med.

Answer: After walking through the smokers to get
inside, she was FUMING

Candy-cane cover


Dear Heloise: I enjoy
your column in the
Omaha (Neb.) World-
Herald. Here is a hint for
leftover candy canes. I
make holiday cookies and
use crushed candy canes
in some recipes.
Last year, I bought a box
of 60 candy canes and had
plenty left over. Instead of
putting them out plain, I
dipped the straight end
in melted chocolate and
let them cool off. After the
chocolate dried, I put each
into its original wrapper.
The hook part was out, so
the guest could pull out
the candy without touch-
ing the chocolate. They
were a hit, and looked
festive and attractive. -
Sue B. in Nebraska

What to use?
Dear Heloise: I am
an avid reader of your
column in the Mansfield
(Ohio) News Journal.
Heloise, I love to bake,
especially cream pies, but
I can't find the ingredient
cream of tartar at any
grocery store. Do you
know how to make a home
version of cream of tartar
for use in pie meringue?
I would appreciate it. -
Sadie R., Mansfield, Ohio
For meringue, substitute
the same amount of white
vinegar or lemon juice
for cream of tartar. For
example, if the recipe calls
for 12 teaspoon of cream
of tartar, add 1/ teaspoon
of vinegar or lemon juice.
Check out my pamphlet for
more money-saving hints
using vinegar for cooking,


Hints from Heloise

cleaning and beauty tips.
For Heloise's Fantabulous
Vinegar Hints and More,
please send $5 and a long,
self-addressed, stamped
(66 cents) envelope to:
Heloise/Vinegar, P.O. Box
795001, San Antonio, TX
78279-5001. Add 1 tea-
spoon of white vinegar to
three egg whites if you want
to make the meringue extra
fluffy. You should be able to
find cream of tartar in the
spice section at the grocery
store. -Heloise

Perfect pasta
Dear Heloise: Every pasta
recipe calls for 4 to 6 quarts
of water for each pound of
pasta. Why do we need to
use so much water? Ellen
inWashington, D.C.
There are a couple of
reasons. It makes it easier
to fit larger, longer pastas
like spaghetti into the pot.
It also helps keep the pasta
from sticking together.
An additional hint for
helping the sauce to stick
to hot pasta is to never
rinse it. The starch left
on the pasta helps the
sauce adhere. Rinse if
making a cold pasta dish.

Don't count on boyfriend's

ex for unbiased appraisal


MALLARD FILLMORE Bv Bruce Tinslev


DEAR ABBY: I'm
considering marrying a
man who is divorced. We
get along great, and I love
and trust him.
Is it ever appropriate
to call the ex and discuss
her side of the story? Or
should I ask my boy-
friend what she'd say if I
were to contact her? -
COVERING MY BASES IN
CALIFORNIA
DEAR COVERING
YOUR BASES: If you call
the ex, you can count
on hearing something
negative about your boy-
friend or they wouldn't
be exes. Also, the things
the ex might consider
to be flaws may be the
qualities you love best
about him.
That you would say
you love and trust your
boyfriend, and in the next
sentence indicate you're
considering a chat with
his former wife, makes
me wonder how deep
your level of trust is.
However, if your gut tells
you to do some digging,
then you should listen
to it even if it results
in an argument, which it
probably will.
DEAR ABBY: I'm proud
of my daughter, "Celia."
She has a master's degree,
a successful career and is
soon to be married to a
wonderful man.
Through three moves
my wife and I have
cared for our daughter's
one-ton-plus of "stuff,"
which includes the big
dollhouse her grandpa
built, her doll collection,
high school and college
memorabilia, her diaries,
dishes for her future
home, etc. When she
visited, I'd ask her to sort
through the boxes and
throw some things out.
Didn't happen.
My wife and I have
downsized to a condo.
The room that was
supposed to be my "man
cave" is half-filled with
Celia's things. It is TIME!
Should I request that
our daughter pay for
storage, or rent a U-Haul
so I can deliver a one-
ton-plus "wedding gift"?
- DISGRUNTLED DAD
IN WASHINGTON STATE


DearAbby

DEAR DAD: I can
think of few things
that would destroy the
ambiance of a man cave
more than a dollhouse.
With a successful career,
your daughter can afford
to pay for a storage unit
for her memorabilia. Set
a date by which it must
be out of your condo,
with the understanding
that if it isn't, YOU will
dispose of it. You should
not have to deliver it
to her. You have been
patient long enough,
and the responsibility is
hers.
DEAR ABBY: I am
a longtime practicing
Pagan. Because of the
media, Pagans are
considered to be evil
devil-worshippers instead
of the nature-loving
people with knowledge
of home remedies we are.
This makes it difficult in
the dating world.
A friend of mine wants
to hook me up with a
friend of his. When is it
appropriate to tell the
gentleman that I'm a
practicing Pagan? I dress
like everyone else, so at
first glance you wouldn't
suspect my religion isn't
Christian. LOVER OF
NATURE
DEAR LOVER OF
NATURE: Nothing com-
pels you and a stranger
to get into a discussion
about religious beliefs
on a first date, but you
should mention it when
the opportunity arises.
If the man seems to be
put off by it, suggest he
consult patheos.com,
an online library on the
subject of religions, in
which there is a section
describing Paganism, its
practices and origins.
It should make for a
stimulating discussion.


"Boast not thyself of tomorrow;for thou knowest not
what a day may bring forth."- Proverbs 27:1
Eternity should always be in sight as we live from
day to day. Our tomorrow may not be spent on this
earth. Are you ready to meet God?

I HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are lively by nature,
and so when you feel like you don't have the energy
for a certain person, project or activity, there is a
good reason.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).When your burden is
heavy, the wise choice is either to put it down or ask
for help.To stress and strain yourself over it would
be turning yourself into a victim, and that's not who
you are.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you don't have the


that this might be a blessing. You also don't have to
take on the risks involved with this purchase.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). General statements
are convenient.They fill the space and are a vessel
foryour pleasant attitude. But ifyou really want to
impress someone, specific facts are the way to go.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).Yourcurrent circus act
includes plate spinning and juggling.You can forgo
the fire eating, though, by refusing to indulge in
incendiary words.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). People who move


factors involved besides how much the rock weighs.
Study the shape and positioning of an obstacle.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Submitting to another
person's will is a killjoy. But there is a way for the
other person to get his or her needs satisfied that
does not include your compliance.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Usually, the one with
the most courage isn't going on and on about how
brave he's being. Courage often looks like quietly
showing up and doing what has to be done.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The adventure is a


bounce your experience and ideas off of Later, you
may realize you are your own witness.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).Your productivity
will be astounding when you do what you can do
and don't even think about what you can't do."Can't
do"is for people who don't want to move on.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Argumentative and
combative types need to prove something. Don't
let them do this at your expense. Defer to them
instead. Speak to their need for recognition.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). An area of doubt is like


money for the high-dollar item you want, consider massive boulders know that there are many other solo mission, and you don't require an audience to a shadowy land where darkness is a shape shifter


and your fear has a way of filling in the blanks. Just
remember that where there are shadows, there is
light. Find it and focus there.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 11). You get to the point
this year, cutting out the unnecessary baggage
that bogs you down.The career breakthrough
simmering over the next seven weeks comes from
focusing on what works well for you. February is
a new chapter for a love relationship. You'll add to
yourfamily and possibly move in March.Virgo and
Scorpio people adore you.Yourlucky numbers are:
30, 28,11,19 and 44.
