LIVE LIKE A TOURIST


Break up the


drive to TPA

throughout the holidays, loved ones
may be flying in from around the
country to visit.
And you may be picking them up and
dropping them back
off at the airport.
If you are lucky,
they will fly into near-
by airports in Punta
SGorda, Fort Myers or
Sarasota. But many of
them will be arriving
Sand departing from
f Tampa International
S^ Airport, making for
stiff legs and antsy
rstly kids on the 90-ish
FEINBERG minute drive.
At the suggestion
COLUMNIST of some readers, here
are options to break
up the monotony of Interstate 75:
Exit 191, River Road:
Snook Haven, 5000 E. Venice Ave.,
Venice. This is especially a good stop after
you pick up relatives at the airport. It's
fairly close to home, which is a good thing
after a big, hearty meal of smoked meats.
It's right on the Myakka River, giving
guests a feel for Old Florida on their first
day here. For more info, www.snook
haven.com.
Exit 207, Bee Ridge Road:
The Urfer Family Park (go west on
Bee Ridge Road, turn left onto Honore
Avenue) in Sarasota County offers a large
playground area, which is really good for
little kids who will be strapped into cars
and planes for several hours. This also is
a good spot to stretch the legs and keep
the blood flowing as the park offers a
one-mile nature trail as well.
Exit 220, State Road 64:
Bennett Park is another stop for kids.
The Manatee County park offers many
amenities such as a large playground with
a ropes course, sand volleyball courts,
walking trails and a fishing pier.
To get there, go West on State Road
64 for about three-quarters of a mile
before making a right on Cypress Creek
Boulevard. Bennett Park will be on your
left. For more info, go to www.my
manatee.org/home/government/
departments/parks-and-recreation/
parks/bennett-park.html.
Exit 224, U.S. 301 North:
The Ellenton Premium Outlets may
serve a dual purpose: stretching the legs
and buying some last-minute Christmas
gifts at stores such as Adidas, Coach, Bose
and more.
Here are two ways to save money if you
plan on making purchases:
1. Those who are 50 or older, you can
receive 10 percent off at certain stores on
Tuesday. Simply show a photo ID at the
register. For a complete list of participating
stores, go to http://www.premiumoutlets.
com/salespdf/ellenton50plusl4.pdf.
2. Veterans, active duty military mem-
bers and their families can receive a free
VIP coupon book by presenting their
military IDs at the Information Center.
For something more active, try ice
skating at the Ellenton Ice and Sports
Complex. There are public skating
hours and rentals so check the website
to see if those times match up well with
flight times: http://ellentonice.com/
publicskating.
Both are visible from the interstate.
If you want to grab a bite to eat, there is
a good waterfront restaurant that surely
will help thaw those northern residents or
warm them as they travel back to frozen
tundras: Woody's River Roo, 5717 18th St.
E., Ellenton. There are a lot of outdoor
tables right on the Manatee River. To look
at their menu, go to www.woodysriverroo.
com.
Your next and last easy to access stop-
ping point before getting into metropoli-
tan traffic is the rest area near the Skyway
Bridge. There are restrooms and vending
machines, along with nighttime security.
Have a safe, wonderful visit with your
out-of-town guests.

Manatee mortalities


State reports record number of deaths


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
Manatees are dying in record num-
bers this year.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission reports
that 796 manatees died from January
to Dec. 6 of this year. The previous
record was 766 manatee mortalities for
the entire year in 2010, primarily from
winter cold stress. In 2012, the FWC
reported 392 manatee mortalities for
the entire year.
In Sarasota County waters, the


FWC reported 20 manatee deaths,
32 in Charlotte County and 274 in Lee
County waters.
The toxic red tide algae Karenia
brevis in Southwest Florida and a mys-
tery cause in Brevard County waters
account for the majority of deaths this
year.
FWC reports 168 confirmed manatee
deaths due to red tide and another
108 deaths are suspected to be
caused by red tide. Of those deaths,
13 manatees died from red tide in

Man charged with


DUI manslaughter


STAFF REPORT

A Deerfield Beach, Fla.,
man has been charged in
connection with a fatal wreck
on Interstate 75 in southern
Charlotte County earlier this
year.
Frank Anthony Zaccone,
48, was arrested Monday on a
charge of DUI manslaughter,
following a May 6 crash when
the car he was driving flipped
over and killed his passenger,
Judy Hannah, 51.
Zaccone was driving south
on Interstate 75 near OilWell
Road when he attempted to
change lanes and was nearly
struck by an unknown vehicle,
according to the report by
the Florida Highway Patrol,


which investigated the crash.
As Zaccone swerved to avoid
the collision, he lost control
of the vehicle, rolling over and
landing upright in
the median, the
report said.
Hannah, also of
Deerfield Beach,
was transported
to Charlotte
Regional Medical
ZACCONE Center in Punta
Gorda, where she
was pronounced dead. Zaccone
was airlifted to Lee Memorial
Hospital in Fort Myers in serious
condition.
Zaccone was served the
warrant Monday night at the
Charlotte County Jail, where he
is being held without bond.

Compromise close


on SAIL charter


By BILL JONES
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Magnets are used to
pull things together,
and one may just solve
the sometimes conten-
tious relations between
proponents for a new
Charlotte County charter
school and the Charlotte
County School Board.
At a School Board
workshop Tuesday,
a 10-member school
district charter school
review committee gave
the proposed Superior
Adventures in Learning
Arts Academy, or SAIL,
an A for innovation
but basically an F for
financial and logistical
viability.


The committee told
the School Board the
cost alone would be
prohibitive, and matters
like transportation,
teacher training, class
size, technical support,
students with special
needs, English as a
second language, food
service, and building
management would be
highly problematic.
Its members said the
SAIL application cited
studies but few results,
contained little hard
data, and startup costs
alone would probably
scuttle the project.
As Dr. Mark Asperilla
and members of the
SAIL 16

Good ideas as the holidays get closer


C orey Cyr, the
manager at
Petsmart in Port
Charlotte, told me
about a good idea his
company has initiated.
They're asking
customers to chip in
a $5 donation when
they come through
the checkout line.
Ten percent goes to
Petsmart's charity,
which helps with pet
adoptions. That's cool,
but it's where the rest of
the donation goes that
caught my attention.
It buys a soft, cuddly
stuffed animal for a
child who can use one,
right here in Charlotte
County.
The Port Charlotte
Petsmart store has
already purchased
about 300 Chance the
Dog and Lucky the Cat
plush toys for children.
These are collectibles
that come out every
year during the holiday
season.
The staff at Petsmart
lovingly stuffed the
300-plus toys into six
huge plastic bags and
turned them over to
Jason Hawk, pastor
of First Church of the
Nazarene.
Pastor Hawk said his
congregation plans
to go out caroling on
Dec. 22 to some places
where children and
a few seniors could
use a little extra love
and kindness during
the Christmas season.
He was going to give
out all of the toys to
children, and maybe
a few seniors who are

shut-ins or at a nursing
home.
The program runs
through the end of the
year. I think Pastor
Hawk would not mind
making a few extra trips
to deliver some cheer if
he has the chance.
Sounds like a good
idea all around.

Bike collection a
success
The Charlotte Sun
staff wants to thank
everyone who contrib-
uted to our annual bike
collection campaign
for the Salvation Army
Giving Tree program.
Nathan Lane, our copy
desk chief and the force
behind this project, re-
ported that he was able
to buy 36 bikes. The
Salvation Army crew
came by and picked up
32 of them, along with
a dozen shopping bags
for other children in the
program. The last few
bikes were headed up
to the Salvation Army
on Tuesday afternoon.

Cunningham flew a C-47 transport from Bougainville in WWII


By DON MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Bill Cunningham was
in his early 20s when he
signed up for the Naval
Aviation Cadet Program
in July 1942. He was
sent to Siena College in
Loudonville, N.Y., where
he received 40 hours of
civilian flight training.
"We trained in two-
seat, single-engine Piper
Cubs. The instructor was
up front and we were
in the back," recalled
the 91-year-old former
aviator, who now lives in
Viscaya Lakes manufac-
tured home park in El
Jobean. 'After eight hours,
you had to solo. I soloed
and then I got my extra
32 hours of flight time."
After basic training
at Squanton Naval Air
Station near Boston,
Cunningham was sent
to Pensacola Naval Air
Station for primary flight
training. Then it was on
to the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill
for more ground school
training. From there, he
went to Jacksonville Naval
Air Station where he was
trained to fly multi-engine
planes.
"I learned to fly a C-47
'Gooney Bird' at Miramar
Naval Air Station in San
Diego. It was June 1944
when we were shipped
overseas. We spent the
next three weeks sailing
to New Caledonia. And
from there we went on to
Bougainville, part of the
Solomon Islands chain in
the Pacific.
"I was part of Marine
Air Group 25 stationed
on Bougainville. It was
my home base for the
duration of (World
War II)," Cunningham
explained. "Our job was
to supply the troops with
ammo and other stuff to
keep them in the battle.
We flew a delivery route to
the various islands.
"Shortly after I arrived
at Bougainville, Admiral
(William) Halsey claimed
we were losing the war in
the Pacific because our
transport ships weren't
getting the supplies into
our troops fast enough.
To solve the problem,
the admiral decided to
augment the supplies
coming in by ship with
supplies transported by
air. That's where we came
in with our C-47s."
The first major battle
Cunningham and his C-47
was involved in was the
capture of Peleliu Island.
He didn't fly into the
base on Peleliu until the
shooting stopped. His out-
fit brought badly needed
food and equipment to
the small island.
Peleliu was a disaster for
the 1st Marine Division.
The division commander
predicted the island
would be in U.S. hands
in three or four days.
Because the Japanese
were so well-protected
in tunnels, concrete pill
boxes and spider holes, it
took the "Leathernecks"
two months to capture
the atoll after suffering
substantial losses.
The closest
Cunningham came to
"buying the farm" was
during a return flight to
Bougainville when one of
his two engines started
windmilling.
"I asked my navigator
how far we had to fly to
make it back to home
base. He told me and I
said, 'We'll never make
it.' So I decided to set the
plane down at another
base on the extreme south
tip of Bougainville that we
held.
"Because I had a load
of stuff in the back of the


plane, we were losing
altitude. As the wheels
of my C-47 touched the
end of the runway, the
windmilling engine quit
altogether. God was with
me that day."


The weather was often
a problem for pilots in the
Pacific.
"One flight I felt badly
about was one I made
with a load of wounded
troops. We were flying
them to a bigger airstrip
further behind our lines so
they could be put aboard
a four-engine transport
for a trip to the hospital,"
Cunningham said.
"Right after I took off
we flew through a thun-
derhead. In the middle of
the storm the plane would
climb 200 feet and then it
would drop unexpectedly
all of a sudden a couple

Volunteer Spotlight: Birthdays made special


By BARBARA
BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

When the boys at
AMIkids Crossroads
in Punta Gorda have
a birthday, it's a time
to celebrate with a big
cake, presents, a goofy
hat, and lots of people
to make their day extra
special.
For some, it may be
the first birthday party
in their honor that they
can remember or
the first in a very long
time. Crossroads boys
are foster teens who
have been in at least 10
different foster homes,
and some as many as 50.
Finding them a safe and
welcoming home has
been the first priority.
But volunteer Jenny
Loche saw another
need for the boys. While
Crossroads meets their
pressing needs, she
wanted them to have
a celebration for their
special day, to know
that their lives are to be
celebrated.
"Most of us take
birthday parties for
granted, and have since
we were children," said
Loche, who became a


Crossroads volunteer
when the facility was in
the process of changing
from housing youth
offenders as part of the
Department of Juvenile
Justice to becoming a
home for hard-to-place
foster teens. "But to
these boys, a party in
their honor is a very
special event."
Loche coordinates
parties at least once
a month. In months
when several boys have
birthdays, she may
plan a big party for
several birthday boys.
Last month, two of the
boys turned 18, the age
at which they "cross
over," or transition into
independent living in an
apartment, and that's a
time for extra ceremony
and celebration.
The Crossroads vol-
unteer group, called the
Crossing Guards, raises
funds for the parties and
gifts, and tells everyone
they know about the
need for cards and gifts,
said Loche. Denise Dull
and Ed Hill of Integrity
Employee Leasing make
sure the table is adorned
with a large cake an-
nouncing the birthday
boy's name in large,


sugary letters.
Carol Weller of Punta
Gorda United Methodist
Church asks church
members to remember
the boys on their birth-
days, and many send
cards or supply gifts.
People from the commu-
nity are invited to attend
the parties and many
do, including some who
aren't otherwise involved
with Crossroads but
want to wish the boys
happy birthday.
"It's so important that
the boys know people
are thinking about
them," said Loche. Most
boys come to Crossroads
with just a few posses-
sions in a bag and a low
opinion of themselves.
They've been shuffled
from foster home to
foster home so many
times that they feel no
one cares. The birthday
parties are one way to
help turn those feelings
around.
Yet as mothers and
party planners know,
parties don't appear
magically. They re-
quire planning and
coordination.
"Jenny is a Godsend,"
said John Davidson,
executive director of

"Her parties are over the
top. She is in charge of
all the celebrations -
birthdays, graduations,
honor roll and gradua-
tions, and crossing over

the boys with open
arms. Jenny Loche helps
them celebrate how
special they are.

Homeless Coalition offers miracle of second chance


all it the Miracle at
Kenesaw Street.
For some, get-
ting a second chance to
have a normal life might
not be called a miracle.
For Tiffany Blair, it is
nothing short of miracu-
lous that a normal life is
opening up for her and
her family.
"When you've been
homeless for four
years, when you've had
nowhere to go and no
one to help you, life is
bleak. But when you
come here, your whole
life changes. You get a
second chance at a good
life," she said.
By "here," she means
the Charlotte County
Homeless Coalition in
Port Charlotte, her home
for the past few months.
She calls it the "best
worse place you can be."
"It's awful to be home-
less, but if you are, this is
absolutely the best place
you can be," said the
young mother.
During the four years
when "home" was
someone's sofa or living
in a car, she said she
never had the feeling
that anyone cared about
her. All that changed
when she came to the
Homeless Coalition with
her husband and three
young children.
"The staff, the volun-
teers, the people who
donate it blows my
mind that these people
all care about me."
While she is grateful
for a safe place to live,
what excites her about
the homeless coalition
are the programs it
offers.
"There is help with
writing a resume and
with interviewing skills.
They do everything they
can to get you working


and back on your feet,"
she said.
Tiffany and her
husband, Jason, are two
of the success stories.
She will soon graduate
as a patient care assis-
tant while her husband
completed culinary arts
training.
Now that they are both
working, they are eligible
for housing and will soon
move into a place of their
own.
"We do much more for
the homeless than put
a roof over their heads,"
acknowledged adminis-
trator Michael Overway.
"If someone is looking
for a place to flop, we're
not it. You have to be
willing to put in hard
work to stay here," he
said. "We have a high
success rate because of
our programs and the
volunteers who help
make it possible."
The buildings at the
Kenesaw Street site are
nondescript, but what
happens there is filled
with enough feel-good
action to fuel a Hallmark
Christmas story.
Those who think "the
homeless" are scuffy men
with addiction issues will
gain a better understand-
ing when they observe
the number of homeless
families and hear their
stories.
"This place has given
me a future," said Robert
Simsons. "My kids are
so happy we can be

Shannon Goodman shares hugs with her children at the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition.
She says she is most grateful for the volunteers who give her kids extra help with school work.


together as a family."
There are essential
volunteers who teach
life skills such as
parenting classes or just
everyday skills most of
us take for granted.
Some come to the
homeless shelter never
knowing the luxury of
a washer and dryer and
have to be taught to do
laundry.
The transformation
from the time they
come to the shelter and
the time they leave is
amazing to witness.
"This place saved me,"


Shannon Goodman said
with feeling. "It's made
me a better mother to
my three kids and it's
given them stability."
Her kids are especially
grateful for the tutoring
classes and extra help
they get from caring
volunteers, she said.
"Just having someone
sit down with them
and give them the extra
help and attention they
need means so much,"
Shannon said.
All that is possible,
Overway says, because
of the volunteers


and donations the
coalition gets from the
community.
"With that help we've
accomplished so much,"
he said. "But we have a
long way to go."
Those who want to
help by volunteering
or donating clothes or
money can call the co-
alition at 941-627-4313,
or visit www.cchome

deaths, Baxter said. For
the last two years, the
Indian River Lagoon
has seen a die-off of
seagrasses, a prime
food source for the

charter school.
Vincent said there was
"no debating" Asperilla's
longtime commitment
to and community in-
volvement in Charlotte
County, and his passion
for innovative edu-
cation. But citing the
concerns of the review
committee, he said he
was concerned about
the group's ability to
manage the school.
"Why not work
together," he said, "and
establish some kind of a
magnet program."
Whittaker said that


vegetarian manatees,
and the manatees
there are feeding on
macro-algae and other
aquatic vegetation.
Among the other caus-
es of death, Lee County
leads the state with 15 of
the 71 deaths state due
to injuries caused by
watercraft. In Charlotte
County, six deaths were
due to watercraft and
one death in Sarasota
County.
Lee County is the only
county in the state with
double-digit mortal-
ities reported due to

since charter schools
receive taxpayer
funding, the costs of
establishing the SAIL
charter when similar
curricula and teacher
training are already in
place in the county's
schools would be an
unnecessary burden to
county taxpayers.
He said project-based
learning programs are
already well-established
in the school district.
In addition, the district
is already working with
the New Tech Network,
and the school district


watercraft injuries, but
Baxter said Lee County
has been higher in water-
craft deaths consistently.
The five-year average is
15 annually, Baxter said.
The FWC also reports
manatees are starting to
migrate to their warm
water havens. During this
time of year, the FWC
encourages boaters and
the public to be aware
of manatees in inshore
waters, Baxter said.
Manatee protection
speed zones, mortalities
rates and other informa-
tion about manatees can

"has one of the best arts
program in Florida.
"We don't want a take-
over," Whittaker said.
"We want to do this
together. We could have
more project-based
learning, more art,
without all the overhead
for just 80 students
(the projected initial
enrollment in grades six
to eight for the charter
school in September
2014). We want to bring
you back into the box."
"You are incredible
people with incredible
ideas," Vincent said.


be found on the FWC
website at www.myfwc.

"We want you under our
umbrella focusing on
curriculum rather than
on all the other stuff."
He said a "school-with-
in-a-school" program
could involve 400 or 500
students instead of 80.
Whittaker said the
program would prob-
ably start in Charlotte
High School, but "once
we get this off the
ground, we could go
to Lemon Bay and Port
Charlotte. Once we get
it down, we can grow it."
He said the School
Board "would be glad


com.
Email: reilly@sun-herald.crm

to sit down with your
board as you sit down
with us. We're already
going down the same
road. Let's join forces,
eliminate the overhead.
Help us move forward
a little faster and more
deliberately."
Asperilla called the
idea "valid." In a brief
interview after the
meeting, he said he
would "bring it up to
the board in January.
Get their ideas," and
have a vote.
"Maybe," he said, "we
can partner together."


HELP WITH MANATEE REPORTING
State wildlife officials encourage anyone who sees an injured or dead
manatee, other marine mammals or sea turtles to call 888-404-FWCC
(888-404-3922). Cellular phone customers can dial *FWC or #FWC.
They also ask callers to be prepared to answer the following ques-
tions:
What is the exact location of the animal?
Is the manatee alive or dead?
How long have you been observing the manatee?
What is the approximate size of the manatee?
What is the location of the public boat ramp closest to the
manatee?
Can you provide a contact number where you can be reached for
further information?

wishes


ave you been to
visit Santa to let
him know what
you want for Christmas
yet?
A couple of the Arts
& Humanities Council's
members have confided
in me, so I'm going to
pass on their wishes in
the hopes some of you
can make them come
true. I know they've all
been good and worked
very hard to provide
our community with
wonderful cultural
opportunities.
The Charlotte
Chorale and the
Venetian Harmony both
asked for new voices to
join their choruses and
people who enjoy choral
music and want to hear
it. (That's an easy wish
- just buy a ticket to a
concert.)
The Charlotte
Symphony would love
a sponsor to provide
T-shirts to the students
who participate in
its Symphony Kids
program.
Higher Ground
Performing Arts has
more practical needs:
a vending machine, an
iPad to process trans-
actions, and a compact
desktop printing
calculator.
Lemon Bay
Playhouse could use a
closed circuit TV system
for its theater. If anyone
can give it a break on
this, it would be a fine
Christmas present.
The Military Heritage
Museum would like to
hire a part-time curator.
Before you inundate
the museum with your
resumes, remember this
is a highly specialized
position.
The lovely ladies at
the Charlotte Porcelain
Artist Association wish
for new members. They
want to continue to pass
on this fine craft.
Sea Grape Gallery
wishes for a radio/CD
player so its customers
can enjoy lovely music
while browsing through
the gallery's unique

original art.
The Charlotte
County Concert Band
could use funds to pur-
chase new percussion
equipment and a few
new music stands.
The Visual Arts
Center would like new
lighting for the First
Federal Gallery to prop-
erly show the fabulous
artists' work and a new
air conditioner for
the classroom where
students work so hard.
Our friends at
the DeSoto Arts &
Humanities Council
hope for lots of great
artists and art patrons to
go up to Arcadia for the
Rio de la Paz Festival in
February.
The Charlotte Players
has a couple of items
on its wish list: paving
for its existing facility
parking lot, a used box
truck or open bed truck,
and new chairs for the
Langdon Playhouse.
For the Arts &
Humanities Council, I
have two wishes: more
members and a director
of development.
If you can fulfill the
wishes of any of these
groups, call me at 941-
764-8100 and I'll put you
in touch with them.
Wait, I've a third wish

of the iguana


By GARY ROBERTS
STAFF WRITER

MURDOCK -The
invasive spiny iguana,
long a pest and predator
on Gasparilla Island and
Boca Grande, is making a
move to the mainland.
Charlotte County offi-
cials are hearing reports
that the lizard is showing
up in West County, eating
landscaping around
homes and getting into
attics, said Tommy Scott,
director of Charlotte
County Community
Services.
"We're never going to
eradicate this species
from our county, but we
do have the means to
control it," said Scott,
who provided an update
to commissioners at
Tuesday's county work-
shop. "We're starting to
see more and more of
them out west."
The invasive species,
originally introduced to
Boca Grande in the 1970s,
was tolerated until its
numbers grew out of con-
trol. Currently, Charlotte
and Lee counties, both
with jurisdiction on the
island, have contracted
with the U.S. Department
of Agriculture, Wildlife
Services Division to bring
the population back un-
der control. Before that,
independent trappers
tried their hand at it. And,


for a time, the strategy
was working.
Since 2008, a total of
10,600 iguanas have been
removed by trapping. But
there is a cost. Charlotte's
last annual contract for
the USDA's iguana-erad-
ication program paid out
$70,000, which comes
from the Boca Grande
Street and Drainage
Municipal Service Taxing
Unit, approved by taxpay-
ers in 2008.
There is no funding
in place to address the
problem in the rest of
Charlotte County, Scott
said. It was pointed out
that the county also has a
problem with wild hogs,
but is not considering
an MSTU to resolve that
situation in East County.
The iguana problem is
unique, though, and
spreading.
"It's not going away,"
Commissioner Bill Truex
said. 'And because all
they do is eat and breed,
it's only going to get
worse."
The spiny-tailed iguana
is a true predator and
known to eat anything it
can get its mouth around,
including leaves, flowers,
fruit, insects, spiders,
crabs, fish, rodents and
bats, as well as birds and
lizards and their eggs.
They even will feed on
their own eggs, along with
hatchling sea turtles and


young gopher tortoises,
according to a 2009 study.
In addition, iguanas
burrow extensively,
eroding sea walls and
levies, Scott said, and
they transport invasive
plant species, such as the
Brazilian pepper.
"They also breed and
multiply exponentially,
which causes control
issues," he said.
After failing to discern
a positive impact the
iguanas have on the envi-
ronment, Commissioner
Stephen R. Deutsch
concluded: "They're a
nuisance, like rats."
However Andy Stevens,
county parks and natural
resources manager,
explained that in certain
Caribbean and Central
American cultures, igua-
na is considered edible.
He warned, however, that
they can carry bacterial
pathogens, although
rarely.
With tongue firmly in
cheek, Commissioner
Chris Constance suggest-
ed placing a $5 bounty
on the heads of iguanas,
letting hunters and the
adventurous achieve a
resolution.
"Not only would it take
care of the iguana prob-
lem, I'm sure we could get
a reality show out of it,"
Constance said.

I OUR VIEW

Ethics reform

results good;

more in 2014

OUR POSITION: Integrity
Florida puts officials on notice;
lawmakers making progress on
reforms.
A s the government
watchdog group Integrity
Florida approaches its
third year of policing the ethical
lapses of public officials and
exposing the state's institution-
al weaknesses, it released its
year-end report on progress and
remaining obstacles. We applaud
the nonpartisan organization for
its efforts and results.
The influential magazine
Florida Trend named ethics
reform one of its "12 Best Ideas
For a Better Florida in 2014,"
and profiled the group started
by Dan Krassner and Ben Wilcox
in 2011. It echoed Integrity
Florida's call for building on
recent strengthening in ethics
reform, including allowing the
Florida Commission on Ethics
to independently begin investi-
gations and increasing penalties
for violations.
Among Integrity Florida's big-
gest targets is Enterprise Florida,
the powerful quasi-private
economic development group
it criticizes for insider dealings,
pay-to-play policies and lack of
accountability when taxpayer
funds used as incentives to lure
new businesses fail to produce
promised jobs. Integrity Florida
called the organization "our
state's most glaring example of
cronyism and institutional cor-
ruption" and released a report
showing $20 million in subsidies
had gone to companies who are
represented in the Enterprise
Florida board.
Members of the organization,
chosen by the governor and
legislative leadership, are under
pressure to deliver on Gov. Rick
Scott's promise to create 700,000
jobs in seven years. PolitiFact
Florida, the Pulitzer Prize-
winning scorekeeper run by the
Tampa Bay Times and the Miami
Herald has labeled Scott's prom-
ise a middling "In The Works," but
notes that the Legislature's Office
of Economic and Demographic
Research estimated in 2011 that
the state would add more than
1 million jobs regardless of who
was governor.
Partly in response to Integrity
Florida's exposure of inflated
job promises and Enterprise
Florida's failure to raise matching
funds from the private sector,
the Legislature this year passed a
law requiring an outside auditor
to review state subsidy programs
and deals and approved only a
fraction of the subsidy funding
sought by Scott.
Also among the ethics progress
this year was Scott's appoint-
ment of an inspector general
for Citizens Property Insurance
Corporation. State Chief
Financial Officer Jeff Atwater
also completed an extension
audit of state vendor contracts
that showed more than half had
significant deficiencies that left
taxpayers unprotected in the
way of contract breaches or
failures to perform, according
to Integrity Florida's year-end
summary.
In 2014, Integrity Florida will
be pushing for bills that would
increase public access to infor-
mation about health care op-
tions and restaurant inspection
results. We'd like to see them add
school grading, student testing
and physician complaint, lawsuit
and disciplinary action informa-
tion to the reform targets. While
the state does post such data, it
is often hidden within Byzantine
website menus and written in
opaque technical jargon.
In two years, Integrity Florida
has put state and local officials
on notice and we're encouraged
that the response has mostly
been cooperation not defen-


siveness with the exception
of Enterprise Florida and
we look forward to more ethic
reform progress in 2014.

LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

Speaker Boehner
is no leader

Editor:
Republicans are facing a
divided membership and are
dealing with it badly. There
was ample opportunity to
acknowledge some of the
tea party's principles and
concerns. Instead, Speaker
Boehner chose to attack con-
servatives. That is an interest-
ing and ill-conceived strategy
that will result in handing the
Democrats many more wins.
There are many, many areas
of agreement between the
tea party and the Republican
establishment. And there have
been lost opportunities to ex-
pand on those areas. But the
media, ably assisted by the
Republican Party, are dividing
conservatives and moderates
even further.
Don't buy the hype. Tea par-
tiers are only looking to be in
the game and the Republicans
won't invite them. So whose
fault is that?
As for Boehner's attack? True
leaders work to be inclusive.
True leaders accept the winds
of change. True leaders are
respectful of the ideas and
concerns of all. True leaders
listen to all sides. True leaders
nurture open minds. True
leaders don't cling to old ways.
True leaders bring people
together, not drive them apart.
John Boehner is no leader.
Carolyn M. Brown
Englewood

Pitiful excuse
for a real budget

Editor:
Well, maybe we've arrived.
Speaker of the House John
Boehner is attacking con-
servative groups. So I wish
I could ask him this: If this
is such a lovely little budget
compromise, why wait until
the final hour? A nice idea like
this could have been passed
months ago. Isn't the truth
that brinksmanship works to
get unpopular plans passed?
And isn't it also true that
after five years this is a pitiful
excuse for a real budget?
Let's face it, millions of
Americans believe that we
should live within our means.
Millions believe voting is a
right reserved for bona fide
voters. Millions believe that
we cannot support unlimited
numbers of undocumented
immigrants and that the


very fact that our borders
are insecure puts us at risk
from terrorists. Millions
understand that the talk of
things getting better and deals
that are supposed to help fix
things are just talk with no
substance. Millions believe
that Obamacare is illegal, will
hurt sick Americans, and will
financially ruin many more. In
addition, they believe that the
executive branch has wildly
overstepped its authority.
And millions of us understand
that Congress has no power.
So, the railing against
conservatives and the empty
compromises will continue
because both Republicans
and Democrats are unarmed
in a war of ideas. And unwill-
ing to relinquish any control
in the name of substantive
problem solving.
Sandy Dameron

Another view
of discrimination

Editor:
We all know the story of the
Christian baker who is being
forced to bake a wedding
cake for a same-sex couple.
He is not allowed to chose his
clientele according to his own
beliefs.
So, the question is if he
was a Muslim baker would
the same rules apply? Would
a Muslim baker be forced to
bake for a gay couple?
Homosexuality is con-
sidered criminal in Islamic
countries and a recent ruling
in India's Supreme Court
upheld that law.
I don't think our courts
would have the stomach to
hold Muslims to the same
standards as Christians.
And that, my friends, is real
discrimination.
Kathlyn Messina
Englewood

Trees provide
enormous benefits

Editor:
On more then one occasion
I have been labeled a "tree
hugger." In a metaphorical
sense, those who attempt to
berate me are actually referring
to my liberal political leanings.
However, in a literal sense,
there is nothing more benefi-
cial to mankind than a tree.
It is common knowledge
that trees take in carbon
dioxide and release oxygen,
which also helps clean the
air. They also cool the air by
shading and through water


evaporation. Obviously, this
knowledge is either not
known or simply ignored by
the numbskulls in the county
who decided to indiscrimi-
nately cut down the beautiful
oaks at the library site on
Forrest Nelson Boulevard.
The mindless individuals
who made this stupid decision
claim the trees were upending
the curbs in the parking lot.
Did it ever occur to those
in charge that a curb is an
inanimate object which does
nothing for the environment
or the benefit of mankind?
A county representative
was quoted as saying that the
permit was obtained for the
elimination of the oaks. Of
course they write the permits.
Do they think tree lovers are
stupid? This piece of paper
does not justify removing a liv-
ing specimen simply because a
few find curbing to be aesthet-
ically pleasing to the eye. The
last time I checked, breathing
was much more beneficial to
the human species.
There had better not be
judgment day for those who
make such decisions about
trees. I would not want to
explain to God this blatant
destruction of one of his most
beautiful creations.

Rushing headlong
into Common Core

Editor:
Bravo! The article, "Five
Myths about Common Core
standards," written byValerie
Strauss in your recent edition
was outstanding.
I am not a supporter of
Common Core and was pre-
pared for yet another litany
of admonishments for those
with my viewpoint. However,
Strauss threaded the needle
perfectly by addressing both
sides of the issue.
As pointed out in the
article, RandiWeingarten, the
president of the American
Federation of Teachers and a
supporter of the core, has said,
"You think the 'Obamacare'
implementation is bad? The
implementation of Common
Core is far worse." Also,
Strauss summarized point
number five, new core tests
will save taxpayers money, as
follows, "Bottom line: nobody
knows how much implement-
ing Common Core will cost."
Complexity and cost are the
hallmarks of anything coming
out of Washington. If just
these two items are consid-
ered alone, it should give us
all cause to pause before we


rush headlong into imple-
menting yet another one of
their infamous programs.

Arms race
won't work

Editor:
Fighting firearms with more
firearms simply doesn't work.
The bad guys and the crazies
have guns, so let's make it easy
for the good guys to have guns
so they can shoot each other.
How's that working? So far
it's not.
Instead, why not institute
a system of gun licensing/
registration that would allow
all those who can justify the
owning of a firearm to be so
licensed, but heavily penalizes
an unlicensed individual in
possession of a firearm, with
a minimum of two years in
jail, and a similar penalty for
anyone selling a firearm to an
unlicensed individual.

Local government
at its finest

Editor:
I read in this past Sunday's
paper about the noise the
Bayflite helicopter is making.
I see this upsets the people of
Heron Creek and Cheryl Cook.
Cheryl Cook's statement
made me laugh about her
concerns about the helicopter.
It wasn't the first part of her
statement that made me laugh,
but the second part that did.
Cheryl Cook feared the
chopper could simply fall
out of the sky and injure
people on the ground. People
of North Port, you have
been warned that starting
tomorrow it may start to rain
choppers from the sky and
injure people on the ground.
The people of North Port
are still wondering why we
have this albatross hanging
around their necks called
Warm Mineral Springs?
Wonder no longer with think-
ing like this. Local govern-
ment at its finest, again.

Charlotte Memorial
provides service too

Editor:
I read with interest the story
about Kays-Ponger Funeral
Home and the service they
provide area veterans groups by
disposing of their retired flags.
While the service they
provide is much needed and
appreciated by those who use
it, you left out some informa-
tion that I think is important
and will be useful to all of the
many veterans in the area.
Charlotte Memorial Funeral
Home and Cemetery in Punta
Gorda also will properly
dispose of any retired flags.
They can be American flags,
service flags, organization
flags, school flags, etc. We also
have an on-site crematory
and will actually come pick
up the flags from a home or
business if necessary.
American flags are cre-
mated with an honorably
discharged veteran whenever
possible. In the event that
we cremate American flags
by themselves, the ashes are
buried in our Veteran's Garden
of Honor.
To have a flag picked up,
call 941-639-1171. Thank you
for informing our community
about this valuable service
that is provided free of charge
by your local funeral homes.

County holiday tree reshaped and relit


he County Admin-
istration Center
U.S. 41 Holiday
Tree was lit on Dec. 9.
This evergreen was badly
misshapeden by, yet
survived, the 2004-2005
hurricane season. This
tree is frequently pruned
and reshaped, but it
continues to grow in an
unshapely manner. Last
year a suggestion was
made by lighting division
technicians for a cable
wheel to provide a more
symmetrical appearance
for the holiday lights.
This year Charlotte
County facilities con-
struction and mainte-
nance department tech-
nicians constructed and
installed an extension
wheel with eight cables
for the tree. Facilities
department staff and
lighting division staff
worked together in two


lift trucks installing
the numerous strings
of energy-efficient
lights. The suggested
and implemented plan
is now a success. The
guide wires have better
attachment points for
the lights which look
more uniform when
lit. The teamwork, help
and cooperation of all
involved exemplifies the
holiday spirit. Please
enjoy the colorful and
festive results of our
"elfin magic" while you
are in the Murdock area.


Customer service
A "technical assis-
tance" session was
recently held at the
Area Agency on Aging
for SWFL in Fort Myers.
Representatives from
surrounding counties'
senior services programs,
including Charlotte
County, met with staff
from the Department
of Elder Affairs. Issues
discussed included dual
enrollments of clients in
programs, client choices
and prioritization for
services.
At the meeting it was
noted that Charlotte
County human services'
senior division has
100 percent data accu-
racy compliance. Our
area overall (Charlotte,
DeSoto, Hendry, Glades,
Lee, Sarasota, and
Collier counties) has the


highest data accuracy
rate (99.5 percent) within
the state. Further kudos
went specifically to our
case manager, Donna
Robichaud, for file
organization, presenta-
tion, thoroughness and
substance of client file
case notes. Her notes will
be used as best practice
examples in statewide
training for client file
case notes.

Water control
As part of the water
control replacement
project in greater Port
Charlotte, a stormwater
structure located on
Forrest Nelson Boulevard
("SUN 3.65") at the
Sunset Waterway crossing
between Quesada Avenue
and Corktree Circle will
be replaced. The con-
struction contract will


be advertised for bid this
month with construction
projected to begin in
April 2014.
The results of a drain-
age study previously
conducted determined
that the existing struc-
ture is undersized. It
was recommended that
the SUN 3.65 structure
be replaced with three
8-foot by 10-foot box
culverts which would in-
crease the flow capacity.
In order to carry out this
construction, Forrest
Nelson Boulevard will
need to be closed at this
location (projected in
April 2014) requiring
vehicle and pedestrian
traffic detours. Forrest
Nelson Boulevard, be-
tween Quesada Avenue
and Corktree Circle,
will remain closed for
approximately 115 days
during construction.


A public service an-
nouncement will be
provided in advance of
the road closure.

ter/drainage and other

VIEWPOINT











Hoping for a'Christmas miracle'


By IAN ROSS
STAFF WRITER
John Swoboda thought
he had beaten melano-
ma, a deadly form of
skin cancer, three years
ago.
But just before his
youngest daughter's
wedding, he learned his
cancer had returned,
and was diagnosed with
stage four melanoma.
A cancer specialist gave
him six to 12 months to
live.
"Two weeks before
our daughter's wedding
(John) started getting


these white patches on
his skin," John's wife,
Faith Swoboda said
Monday.
John and Faith went to
a cancer specialist, who
diagnosed him. That
was in the first week of
November.
"His entire family
flew down here for the
wedding and we had to
tell them," Faith said.
"But we didn't tell the
bride and groom until
they flew down from the
honeymoon and that
was extremely difficult."
John, who owns
Quality Lawn Care, said


the cancer treatments
are costly, and he is
seeking help to pay for
the needed surgeries.
"We're looking for a
Christmas miracle," he
said.
The Swobodas said
two friends have been
a big help in organizing
fundraising efforts.
Lorna Williamson
helped to organize the
Facebook page to get
the word out about their
need. She is also work-
ing on a golf fundraiser
to benefit the Swobodas.
John said Williamson
"had melanoma herself
- I think that's why
she's putting forth such
an effort."
Another friend, Jimmy
Bruns, said he's known
the Swobodas since
they started bowling
five or six years ago at
Englewood Bowl on
299 S. Indiana Ave.,
Englewood.
"Once I found out that
he had cancer, I wanted
to do something," he
said.
Bruns' life was also
touched by cancer. His
grandfather died from
lung cancer after a
seven-year fight.


"It's something I don't
want to see happen to
John, so I'm trying to
help him raise some
money (for medical
expenses)," Bruns said.
Meanwhile, John had a
double surgery Monday,
where he got some good
news. One of the tumors
thought to be melano-
ma was not. The other
tumor was removed and
John is now recovering
and will soon meet a
cancer specialist to
determine his future
treatment plan.
Bruns is planning
a fundraiser centered
around the bowling
alley, where many of the
Swobodas' close friends
bowl.
The bowling alley's
regulars are a close-knit
community, said Bruns.
"A lot of people will do
almost anything for
anybody in that bowling
alley."
Jim Janik, a manager
at Englewood Bowl, said
Tuesday the Swobodas
are well known at the
bowling alley. "They're
really nice people," Janik
said.
"Just three or four
weeks ago, I was talking


to (Faith) in the bar and
she just came out with
it," Janik said.
After the news was
made public, Janik said,
"bowlers came up to us
and said 'What can we
do?' So we set up this
fundraiser."
The fundraiser is a
tournament with door
prizes, a 50/50 raffle and
a buffet. The admission
price of $25 includes
shoes and bowling. In
addition, local busi-
nesses can sponsor
a lane for $25. Those
interested in attending
can RSVP by calling
Jimmy Bruns at 941-234-
3328, Faith Swoboda at

also set up an online

Faith said the support
she and her husband
have received so far has
been "absolutely won-
derful. I couldn't ask for
better people, and their
ways of helping even
if it's just a phone call
text or email its all
been fantastic."

Golf carts help


light up season


Craig Felker, driver of the Felker/Turner Tiki Cart. The cart carried a few of the very first golf cart parade participants 10 years ago,
when there were only seven carts participating.


The 10th annual Harbour Heights Lighted Golf Cart Parade started Saturday in Harbour Heights
Park with over 50 carts, a few tractors and trailers being pulled filled with Harbour Heights
residents wanting in on the fun. John Keith drove the cart pulling this trailer filled with friends.


Leading the lighted golf cart parade was Madison Eiss, followed by close to 60 lighted carts,
tractors and trailers that spent the evening winding in and around the Harbour Heights neigh-
borhoods.


River Miller, 5, and her grandparents, Annette and Mark Hilliard, along with their 15-year-old
dog, Maverick, ride in their pink flamingo, snowflake, fish and palm tree decorated cart.


Even though Steve Mason was wearing a Grinch shirt, he was definitely in the Christmas mood,
driving the tractor that pulled a trailer of friends.


Ready with hands full of candy to throw from the cart, Logan
Sweet, 9, and his sister, Lexus, 12, ride with their aunt, Kathy
Hockensmith.


One of the largest trailers being pulled by a tractor/cart was the Patriot Riders of America from
Port Charlotte.


Santa waves to the crowd while riding in a trailer being pulled by a tractor for the annual
parade.


Waving to those in the park at the beginning of the parade, Gordon Freeman relaxes in his pool
chair being pulled by a friend's golf cart.


Spencer Debriester, 11, rode on the back of this cart pulling Snoopy and his dog house.

Fla. homeowner burden


Report: Insurance rates are highest in the US


By GARY FINEOUT
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER

TALLAHASSEE -
Floridians are paying
the highest homeown-
er insurance rates in
the nation even though
the state has not been
hit by a hurricane in
nearly a decade.
A national report


released this week
shows the average pre-
mium for most Florida
homeowners is $1,933
a year, or nearly twice
the national average
of $978. Five of the six
states with the highest
rates are along the Gulf
of Mexico.
The report by The
National Association


of Insurance
Commissioners is
based on 2011 rates
and includes for the
first-time premiums
paid by customers
of Citizens Property
Insurance. The
state-created Citizens
is the largest insurer
in the state with
more than 1 million


policyholders.
Florida's insurance
rates have been
steadily going up for
the last several years
even though the state
has not been hit by a

Survey: Income gap hurts economy

By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRrrITER
WASHINGTON -The growing
gap between the richest Americans
and everyone else isn't bad just for
individuals.
It's hurting the U.S. economy.
So says a majority of more than
three dozen economists surveyed last
week by The Associated Press. Their
concerns tap into a debate that's
intensified as middle-class pay has
stagnated while wealthier households
have thrived.
A key source of the economists'
concern: Higher pay and outsized
stock market gains are flowing mainly
to affluent Americans. Yet these
households spend less of their money
than do low- and middle-income
consumers who make up most of the


population but whose pay is barely
rising.
"What you want is a broader
spending base," says Scott Brown,
chief economist at Raymond James,
a financial advisory firm. "You want
more people spending money."
Spending by wealthier Americans,
given the weight of their dollars, does
help drive the economy. But analysts
say the economy would be better able
to sustain its growth if the riches were
more evenly dispersed. For one thing,
a plunge in stock prices typically leads
wealthier Americans to cut sharply
back on their spending.
"The broader the improvement, the
more likely it will be sustained," said
Michael Niemira, chief economist at
the International Council of Shopping

WASHINGTON (AP) -
Year-end legislation to
ease Congress' chronic
budget brinkmanship

Fed likely to maintain bond-buying pace


WASHINGTON (AP)
- Is this week when the
Federal Reserve finally
slows its aggressive
stimulus for the econo-
my? Or does it want to
await more evidence of
a consistently improving
economy?
It's a close call.
Yet most economists
think the Fed will
maintain the pace of its
monthly bond purchases
to keep long-term loan
rates low to spur spend-
ing and growth.
The decision carries
high stakes for individ-
uals, businesses and
global financial markets.
A pullback in the Fed's
bond buying would likely
send long-term rates
up and stock and bond
prices down.
Many analysts think
the Fed will signal that it
expects to slow the pace
of its bond purchases
from $85 billion a month,
perhaps early next year, if
the economy strengthens
further.

Northeast snowstorm boosts energy prices


BOSTON (Bloomberg)
-A fast-moving storm
spread snow across the
U.S. Northeast, tying up air
traffic and boosting spot
energy prices as electricity
demand surged.
New York may receive
2 to 4 inches before the
storm ends late Tuesday,
the NationalWeather
Service said. Boston may
get 8 inches, said Alan
Dunham, a meteorologist in
Taunton, Mass.
A winter weather adviso-
rywas upgraded to a winter
storm warning across
eastern Massachusetts,
including Boston, and
southern New Hampshire,
meaning more snow is now
expected to fall and travel
will be troublesome.
"One of the biggest
impacts with this snow sit-
uation will be the afternoon
and evening commute,"
Dunham said. "It's not a
good combination when
there are a lot of cars and
moderate-to-heavy snow."
As of 12:50 p.m. in New
York, 184 flights at Newark
Liberty International
Airport in New Jersey and
84 at NewYorlks LaGuardia
had been canceled,
according to FlightAware,

Spot wholesale electricity
in the Northeast surged as
demand topped regional
grid operators' forecasts.
On-peak prices for Boston
climbed $97, or 59 percent,


to average $260.24 a
megawatt-hour as of noon,
the most since July 19. New

transmission lines and
power plants to halt any
routine maintenance,


construction or testing that
could jeopardize reliability
of the six-state grid, Marcia
Blomberg, a spokeswoman
for the company in
Holyoke, Mass., said in an
email.
"New England has expe-
rienced cold temperatures,
which pushes up consumer
demand for power and can
also affect the performance
of electric system infra-
structure and equipment,"
she said. It was 18 degrees
in Boston at 1:30 p.m., the
weather service reported.
About an inch of snow
had fallen in many places
around NewYork City by
midmorning, said Joey
Picca, a weather service
meteorologist in Upton, on
NewYorlks Long Island.
"Right now we're kind of
expecting on-and-off light
to moderate snow during
the day," Picca said by tele-
phone. Northern portions
of the city will probably get
the most.
Outside of NewYork,
the storm is expected to
bring as much as 3 inches
of fluffy snow to eastern
Pennsylvania and southern
New Jersey, including
Philadelphia and Trenton,
the weather service said.

Cat fossils found in

China reveal early

domestication


(LA Times) -
Archaeologists in China
have unearthed the first
clear evidence of cats
living among humans
as semi-domesticated
mousers about 5,300
years ago, a heretofore
missing link in the his-
tory of the world's most
popular pet, experts say.
The evidence, pub-
lished Monday in the
Proceedings of the
National Academy of
Sciences, supports the
long-held view that cats
began their symbiotic
relationship with people
following the advent of
agriculture, many thou-
sands of years after dogs
were tamed by nomadic
hunter-gatherers.
The discovery fills in
an enormous gap in
experts' understanding
of cat domestication,
but it has also thrown
them for a curve. In
some ways, an ancient
Chinese village is the
last place researchers
expected to find such
evidence.
"This was a very
unexpected find," said
study co-author Fiona
Marshall, a zooarchae-
ologist at Washington
University in St. Louis.
Today, every domestic
cat in the world -
whether it's howling in a
back alley, starring in a
YouTube video or climb-
ing into an empty box
in your living room is
descended from a single
subspecies of Middle
Eastern wildcat known as
Felis silvestris lybica.
Marshall and her
colleagues note that
the ancient village of
Quanhucun, in cen-
tral China's Shaanxi


province, is far beyond E
s. lybica's natural range,
and raises the question
of just how the cats got
there.
Were they imported
from the Middle East as
novelties, or even food?
Were the Quanhucun
kitties descended from
an Asian subspecies of
wildcat, Felis silvestris
ornata, and later dis-
placed or wiped out?
Marshall and her
colleagues hope upcom-
ing DNA analysis will
clarify matters. In the
meantime, experts have
been left to wonder.
"The question every-
one has is, what cat is
this and where did it
come from?" said biolo-
gist and cat lineage ex-
pert Carlos Driscoll, who
is based at the National
Institutes of Health and
was not involved in the
study. "The key ingredi-
ent that's missing here is
DNA evidence."
The discovery report-
ed in PNAS consisted
of eight fossilized
bones from at least two
felines that were found
in ancient trash pits
along with other animal
remains, pottery shards
and tools. The bones in
the pits accumulated
over about 200 years,
they wrote.
Researchers empha-
sized several factors
that suggest the remains
belonged to cats that
had developed a unique
relationship with long-
ago farmers.
The bones are compa-
rable in size to those of
European house cats but
smaller than those of
European wildcats, they
reported.

Vladimir Putin gave
Ukraine's hard-pressed

a sharp cut in the price

that Yanukovych secured

Europe car sales

MILAN (Bloomberg)-
European new-car sales
rose a third consecutive
month in November, the
longest period of gains in
four years, as demand for
autos from Volkswagen
and Renault contributed
to signs that an industry-
wide decline is ending.
Registrations in
November increased
0.9 percent from a year
earlier to 975,281 vehi-
cles, the Brussels-based
European Automobile
Manufacturers
Association, or ACEA, said
Tuesday in a statement.


The growth followed
gains of 4.6 percent in
October and 5.5 percent
in September.
The economy of the

- Gallant guide dog
Orlando was just doing
his duty.
The black Lab bravely
leapt onto the tracks at
a Manhattan subway
platform Tuesday after his
blind owner lost con-
sciousness and tumbled in
front of an oncoming train.
CecilWilliams, 61, and
Orlando both escaped
serious injury when the

them a miraculous
end to a harrowing ordeal
that began when Williams
began to feel faint on his
way to the dentist.
"He tried to hold me up,"
the emotional Williams
told The Associated Press
from his hospital bed, his

say they believe growth
could reach a healthy
3 percent annual pace
even without the Fed's
extraordinary help.
As Janet Yellen prepares
to succeed Ben Bernanke
as chairman early next
year, most of the econo-
mists expect the Fed to
become more "dovish"-
that is, more focused on
fighting unemployment
than on worrying about
higher inflation that might
result from the Fed's
actions. The Senate could
confirm Yellen as soon as
this week.
The economists are
also confident that U.S.

romantic notion: Amazing
things happen to others, so
why not for me?
"When people are
desperately sick, there's
always a part of the brain
that thinks there will be a
miracle cure," Loewenstein
says. "If you want some-
thing to be true, your brain
is awfully good at figuring
out reasons, magical ones,
that there's a good likeli-
hood that it is true. The
desire to win does drive
a certain kind of frenzied
optimism."

centuries to a holiday
poem first published

newspaper: Who really

now-classic also known
as "The Night Before
Christmas" was first
published anonymously
in the Sentinel news-
paper on Dec. 23, 1823.
The Daily Gazette of
Schenectady reports
that Wednesday's trial
will have a prominent
local lawyer representing
Clement Clark Moore,
a wealthy scholar from
NewYork City who's
credited with writing the
poem.
Other attorneys will
argue the side of Henry

Stocks slip as Fed meets


NEWYORK (AP)-
Nobody wanted to stick
their neck out on Tuesday.
The stock market edged
slightly lower as the Federal
Reserve started a two-day
policy meeting that may
herald the beginning of
the end for its economic
stimulus.
Few expect that the Fed
will announce that it plans
to pare back, or "taper," its
huge bond-buying program
after its meeting wraps up
onWednesday. However,


good news on the U.S.
economy this month, in-
cluding a blockbuster jobs
report, and a budget deal
in Washington appeared to
have increased the likeli-
hood of a change.
"It's just the taper drama,
that's really all the market
seems focused on," said
Dean Junkans, CIO forWells
Fargo Private Bank. "The
chances of them doing
something tomorrow are
higher than they were a
month ago."


Major stock indices
fell, but just slightly The
Standard & Poor's 500
index eased five points, or
0.3 percent, to 1,781. The
Dow Jones industrial aver-
age crept down nine points,
or 0.1 percent, to 15,875.26.
The Nasdaq composite
edged lower by five points,
or 0.1 percent, to 4,023.68.
Eight of the 10 industrial
groups in the S&P 500
declined, led by phone
companies. Materials
stocks and technology


companies edged higher.
A couple of big compa-
nies bucked the downward
trend after pledging to hand
more cash to stockholders.
Boeingrose $1.16, or 1
percent, to $135.88 after
the plane maker increased
its stock buyback program
by $10 billion and raised its
dividend 52 percent. 3M
climbed $3.73, or 3 percent,
to $131.39 after raising its
dividend by 35 percent. The
company also forecast solid
earnings next year.


Computing poetry: Byte of a Christmas cookie


was the night
before Christmas
when all through
the house,
lights flashed on the
tower and even the
mouse.
The webcams were
ready, installed with great
care,
In hopes that grandkids
would be virtually there.
The children were
nestled all snug in their
beds,
While visions of
computer games danced
in their heads.
Mamma in her rocker,
a tablet on her lap.
To check Santa's route
on Norads' tracking map.
Last minute shopping,
I knew it would matter,
Receipts from the
printer were spit with a
clatter.
The emails and texts
began to beep and flash,
Away to the laptop I
flew in a dash,
An email from Santa, I
pulled from the cache.
The sleigh was loaded,
the springs sitting low,
Boxes of computer
games, only kids know.
Zombie Tycoon 2 for
Tommy, Angry Birds for
Sue,
Xbox, Wii, Playstation


and Nintendo too.
Neither Mamma nor I
had Santa forgot,
A wireless keyboard
and mouse in the lot.
From a webcam mount-
ed some far away place,
An image so small,
across the screen it did
race.
What could it be I
wondered, what would
appear,
But a miniature sleigh,
and eight tiny reindeer,
With a little old driver,
so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it
must be St. Nick.
I toggled the volume
and turned it up loud,
As his digital facade
flew over the clouds.
At the speed of Moore's
law his coursers they
came,
And he whistled, and
shouted, and called them
by name;
"Now, Dell! Now, Gates!


Now, Jobs and Wosniak!
On, Bezos! On Ellison!
On, Hewlett and Packard!
To the top of the
toolbar! The top of the
screen!
Now pixels are chang-
ing, amazed by it all!
The picture expanded
as closer he drew,
His exact location
surely only he knew.
But Google Street view
offered a hopeful clue,
Just a click of the mouse,
our house was in view.
With the sleigh full of
downloads, upgrades and
such,
St. Nicholas too, might
it be just too much?
The broadband was
humming the router
secure
A shiny new computer
I'm sure will allure.
Firewalls open for the
jolly red elf,
Presents are coming,
surely some for myself.
And then, in a twin-
kling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and paw-
ing of each little hoof.
A mystery for sure I
pondered aloud,
Could Santa be real an
answer I vowed.
An Internet search for
the jolly St. Nick,
"Santa Claus: could he be


real" should turn the trick
Pages and pages of
results did appear,
To read them all might
take 'til Christmas next
year.
My eyelids grew heavy
then started to droop,
A short nap was needed
so I could regroup.
Foggy and confused
from my slumber I stirred,
"You've got mail," from
the speakers I heard.
An email from Santa's
own smartphone it said,
A tight schedule barred
his waking me, he pled.
Presents for all under
the tree he had spread,
Click here for a live
video feed of the sled.
The digital image
danced and sparkled
bright,
Santa driving his sleigh
on its magical flight.
But I heard him
exclaim, ere he drove out
of sight,
"Merry Christmas
to all, and to all a
good-night."

ear Dave: My wife
and I have $15,000
in debt left to
pay off. We bring home
around $32,000 a year,
and we usually spend
$250 to $300 on Christ-
mas. I started talking
to her about your plan
earlier this year, and she
finally agreed and got
on board a couple of
months ago. How should
we handle Christmas
budgeting in the mid-
dle of working our debt
snowball? Scott
Dear Scott: The first
thing I'd suggest is to not
mention my name for a
while. If she's agreed to
start working the plan
and help you guys get
control of your money,
that's enough for now.
We don't want to cause
a rift during the holidays.
Just sit down together
and ask her what she
thinks is a reasonable
amount to spend for
Christmas while you're
trying to get out of debt.
If it's a reasonable figure,
smile and tell her you
agree. You might even
ask if she's okay with
your old Christmas
budget. If she is, then
pencil it in and move on
to other things.
The big thing is to
make sure you listen to
her opinion and work
on this together. On
the off chance that she
gives some crazy dollar
amount, just nod and
ask how she came to that
figure. Then, talk things
out. Don't bring up my
name or go crazy about
things. It sounds like
you two are on the right
track! Dave


Switch to
Roth TSP?

Dear Dave: Do you


pn


think I should consider
switching from my
traditional TSP (Thrift
Savings Plan) to a Roth
TSP? Jeremy
Dear Jeremy: If I've got
a choice, I'm going with
the Roth TSP Now, if
you're starting out really
late with your saving and
investing, the math might
work out either way.
But in most cases, when
you've got several years
ahead of you, a Roth TSP,
or even a Roth IRA or
Roth 401(k) where your
money grows tax free, is a
much better choice.
Remember, unless
you've waited until
you're in your 60s, the
vast majority of the
money in the account
will be growth. Ten per-
cent or less will be the
money you actually put
into the account. This
tax-free growth is what
makes the Roth TSP an
excellent choice.
In other words, if
you've got $1 million
in your current invest-
ment, and $900,000
is growth, you'll get
taxed on that portion.
That would amount
to around $300,000.
If your money is in
a Roth, there are no
taxes. You just saved
$300,000 out of every
$1 million. Not a bad
deal, is it? Dave

Unemployed to lose benefits as state, nation make cuts


WEST PALM BEACH
(Cox Newspapers)
- Unemployment
benefits for about 73,000
Floridians will be cut off
after Dec. 28 as both the
state and federal govern-
ment rein in programs
that paid more than
1.5 million state residents
since 2008.
In addition, another
95,300 currently on the
state portion of unem-
ployment benefits will
lose the federal extended
portion another 22
weeks' worth because
federal lawmakers haven't
renewed the program.
As the unemployment
rate has fallen, lawmakers
have curbed benefits.
The pros and cons are


debated by politicians
and economists, but for
unemployed workers, it is
personal.
For many, it staves off
homelessness. Tammy
Elise, who asked that her
full name not be used,
said it didn't cover her
rent, but allowed her to
stay in her home until
November, when her
benefits ran out.
She used up her
savings in the year and
two months since her
$65,000-a-year consultant
job ended. She pays for
her medical needs on
credit cards. And now
she's moved in with a
relative.
"It's impacting me
emotionally, as well as


financially," the 55-year-
old Boca Raton woman
said. "I do not sleep. I am
so petrified and worried
about what is going to
happen to me."
For the past year, the
federal government
has spent an average
of $2 billion a month
funding the Emergency
Unemployment
Compensation program.
It has been used to count-
er the effects of recession
for 60 years, and most
recently was enacted
in 2008 by President
George W Bush when the
unemployment rate was
5.6 percent. Nationally,
the unemployment
rate fell to 7 percent in
November, far above rates


I OTHER HEADLINE NEWS FROM AROUND THE STATE


School named for
Southern general
to be changed
JACKSONVILLE (AP)
-A Florida school board
has decided to end a
decades-long controver-
sy and rename a high
school now named for
a Confederate general
and honorary Ku Klux
Klan leader that some
historical records say
ordered the execution of
hundreds of black Union
soldiers.
The Duval County
School Board said it was
following the will of its
students Monday when
it voted unanimously
to change the name of
Nathan B. Forrest High in
Jacksonville. The change
will take place next year
once a new name is cho-
sen, said Superintendent
Nikolai Vitti.
"What I want is for stu-
dents at Nathan Bedford
Forrest to use this as
a civics lesson," Vitti
said. He said he hopes
students realize that they
can make a difference.

Deputies: Jealous
man shot worker's
car window
DEERFIELD BEACH
(AP) -A Florida Walmart
employee is facing
charges after allegedly
shooting a co-worker's
car window because she
won an employee-of-the-
month award.
Sonia Diogene told
Broward Sheriff's depu-
ties thatWillie Mitchell
became angry after she
received the award and
started harassing her,
saying he had helped her
numerous times and that
he was the one deserving
recognition.
According to an arrest
report, Diogene told
her supervisor that she
repeatedly felt threatened
by Mitchell. Then a
Dec. 1 surveillance video
showed Mitchell pulling
alongside Diogene's car,
shooting out a window
and driving away.
Diogene was not in the
car at the time.
Mitchell is charged
with discharging a
firearm from a vehicle.

Medical marijuana
supporters face
tight deadline
TALLAHASSEE (AP)
- The Supreme Court
isn't the only challenge
facing a petition drive to
put a proposed medical
marijuana constitutional
amendment on Florida's
2014 ballot.
Organizers have until
Feb. 1 to gather 683,189
voter signatures. As of
Tuesday, 162,866 signa-
tures had been certified.
Still, John Morgan of
the Morgan & Morgan
personal injury law firm
thinks there's a good
chance a final push will
get the effort he's organiz-
ing over the top.
"It better, or I'm
paying a lot of money for
nothing. I'll be wanting


a recount," said Morgan,
who expects he'll person-
ally spend $2 million on
the petition drive before
it's over. As of the end of
last month, $1.3 million
has been spent on the
effort about $1 million
out of Morgan's pocket.
Organizers gathered
nearly 100,000 petitions
last week, bringing the to-
tal to nearly 700,000. Now
it's a matter of building a
cushion to account for in-
valid signatures. About a
quarter of the signatures
on the petition won't be
valid because people
signing aren't registered
to vote in Florida, Morgan
estimates.
State lawmakers
to take up flood
insurance issue
CLEARWATER (AP)
- Two Tampa Bay-area
legislators said Tuesday
that they are proposing
a bill to give Florida's
homeowners relief from
rising flood insurance
premiums.
State Sen. Jeff Brandes
and Rep. Larry Ahern said
during a news conference
that the bill would allow
private insurance compa-
nies to offer flood insur-
ance policies to Florida
homeowners.


The Biggert-Waters
Act, which was passed
last year, removes federal
subsidies from properties
in flood zones. FEMA
says the phase-out of
subsidies will affect fewer
than 20 percent of flood
policyholders nationwide
- but many of those
policies are in Florida,
state officials say.

Boy receives
5-organ transplant

MIAMI (AP)- A
3-year-old boy is recov-

five-organ transplant.
Adonis Ortiz under-

transplant in October
at the University of
Miami Jackson Memorial
Medical Center. He
received a new liver, pan-
creas, stomach and small
and large intestines.
He and his doctors will
attend a press conference
on Tuesday.
Doctors say Ortiz was
born in Tampa with a
condition in which the in-
testines protrude through
a hole in the abdominal
wall. He underwent his
first surgery when he was

economists consider to
be normal.
Florida's unem-
ployment rate fell to
6.7 percent in October,
down from 7.8 percent
at the beginning of the
year. That decline means
Florida will cut the
weeks of unemployment
benefits it pays from 19
to 16 weeks under a state
law passed in 2011.
Because Florida pays
fewer than the standard
26 weeks of state bene-
fits, Florida workers got
fewer weeks of extended
benefits this year just
29 weeks compared to the
37 weeks for states with
equivalent unemploy-
ment rates. And because

4 police officers
suspended
TALLAHASSEE (AP)
-Two police officers
and two sergeants have
been suspended for their
participation in the arrest
of a woman who ended up
with a broken bone in her
face when she was brought
to the ground in an attempt
to restrain her, Tallahassee
officials said Monday.
Officer Chris Omerod was
suspended for 80 hours
and Matthew Smidt was
suspended for 40 hours for
failing to provide Christina
West with medical atten-
tion before she was taken


7 percent this fall, seven
weeks of those benefits
were being shaved off this
past weekend.
That means current
recipients may see their
last two weeks cut before
the end of the year, if they
are at the end of their
eligibility.
The state is one of
the most frugal when it
comes to unemployment
benefits.
Attribute that to the
conservative leader-
ship, said Florida State
University economist
Randall Holcombe, who
sat on Gov. Jeb Bush's
advisory council.
Cutting the weeks of
benefits has boosted
employment, he argues.



to Leon County Jail, and for
improperly detailing the
incident in police reports,
the city of Tallahassee said
in a news release.
The officers were not
punished for using force,
however. A 420-page in-
ternal affairs investigation
concluded the officers were
compliant with "policies
and training as they relate
to the appropriate use
of force." Sgts. George
Creamer and William Faust
both received 20-hour
suspensions for violating
standard operating
procedure.

When Florida cut weeks
from 23 to 19 this year,
the unemployment rate
dropped from 7.8 percent
to 6.7 percent as of
October. Unemployed
workers need to look
harder for any job they
can find and be willing to
take something less than
they want to get back in
the workforce, he said.
Meanwhile, the billions
spent on benefits could
have been used for
different programs that
would have boosted the
economy and created
jobs, Holcombe said.
"If you pay people to
be unemployed, then
you're going to get more
unemployed people," he
said.

Indian diplomat's arrest in NYC causes stir


NEW DELHI (AP) -
The arrest and alleged
strip search of an
Indian diplomat in New
York City escalated into
a major diplomatic
furor Tuesday as India's
national security advis-
er called the woman's
treatment "despicable
and barbaric."
Devyani Khobragade,
India's deputy consul
general in New York, is
accused of submitting
false documents to ob-
tain a work visa for her
Manhattan housekeeper.
Indian officials said
she was arrested and
handcuffed Thursday
as she dropped off her


daughter at school, and
was kept in a cell with
drug addicts before
posting $250,000 bail.
A senior Indian official
confirmed reports that
she also was strip-
searched, which has
been portrayed in India
as the most offensive
and troubling part of the
arrest. The official spoke
to The Associated Press
on condition of ano-
nymity because of the
sensitivity of the case.
Her U.S. attorney
said he didn't know if
she was strip-searched.
Federal authorities said
they were looking into
the arrest.


"We understand
that this is a sensitive
issue for many in
India," said Marie
Harf, State Department
deputy spokeswoman.
"Accordingly, we are
looking into the intake
procedures surround-
ing this arrest to ensure
that all appropriate
procedures were fol-
lowed and every oppor-
tunity for courtesy was
extended."
Harf said that federal
authorities would work
on the issue with India
"in the spirit of partner-
ship and cooperation
that marks our broad
bilateral relationship."


India was ready
to retaliate against
American diplomats in
India by threatening
to downgrade privi-
leges and demanding
information about how
much they pay their
Indian household staff,
according to the Press
Trust of India news
agency.
Police also removed
the traffic barricades
near the U.S. Embassy
in New Delhi, a demand
by the Indian govern-
ment in retaliation for
Khobragade's treat-
ment, PTI reported. The
barriers were a safety
measure.

GSK to scrap
individual sales
targets
LONDON (AP) -
British drug company
GlaxoSmithKline said
Tuesday it would stop
paying doctors to promote
its products at speaking
engagements and scrap
individual sales targets,
months after its ethics were
challenged by a bribery
scandal in China.
The group announced
sweeping changes to its
marketing practices, which
also included a halt to
direct financial support to
health care professionals
to attend medical confer-
ences. However, it left open
the possibility of funding
through grants.
"It is patients' interests
that always come first,"
AndrewWitty, the com-
pany's chief executive,
insisted. "We recognize that
we have an important role
to play in providing doctors
with information about our
medicines, but this must be
done clearly, transparently
and without any perception
of conflict of interest."

Six foreign
troops killed
in Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan
(LA Times) Six foreign
troops were killed in
southern Afghanistan on
Tuesday when an aircraft
crashed, according to the
International Security
Assistance Force.
The North Atlantic
Treaty Organization-led
force declined to give
the nationality of those
killed in line with its
policy, although some
media reported they were
Americans.
The coalition added
that there was no fighting
in the area at the time
of the crash, suggesting


it was an accident, and
said the cause was under
investigation.

Casualties heavy
in hospitals in
Syria's Aleppo
BEIRUT (AP) -
Hospitals in the northern
Syrian city of Aleppo
are overwhelmed with
casualties, an interna-
tional aid group warned
Tuesday, as government
warplanes blasted
opposition areas of the
city as part of a withering
three-day air assault that
has killed more than 100
people. The intensified
air campaign, which one
activist group in the city
called "unprecedented,"
suggests President Bashar
Assad's government is
trying to crush opposition
in the contested city,
Syria's largest, ahead of an
international peace con-
ference scheduled for late
January in Switzerland.

Knox in email: 'I
didn't kill Meredith'

FLORENCE, Italy (AP)
- Amanda Knox declared
her innocence in her
roommate's 2007 murder
in a highly unusual email
Tuesday to the Italian
court hearing the case
against her. The former
U.S. exchange student also
said she was staying away
from the trial out of fear of
being wrongly convicted.
"I didn't kill. I didn't
rape. I didn't rob. I didn't
plot. I didn't instigate. I
didn't kill Meredith," Knox
wrote. Presiding Judge
Alessandro Nencini read
the five-page email written
in Italian into the court
record. He noted that
the email, presented by
Knox's lawyers before their
closing arguments, was
not a normal procedure in
Italy.

By ZACH MILLER
SPORTS WRITER
NORTH PORT -Gerard
Gregoire already planned
to take his starters out
at halftime of Tuesday's
match to give them some
rest during a long week.
But after junior Gaspar
Margaryan scored his
second goal to give North
Port High School a 5-0
lead in the 30th minute
against Charlotte, the
Bobcats coach emptied
his bench a little early.
He had five junior varsity
players available, and since
Charlotte no longer fields
a JV team, the remainder
of the match became a
chance for North Port's
younger group to play.
"I'm just trying to keep
them in the loop because
we are going to need
players down the stretch,"
Gregoire said. "Some of
them have been up and
down throughout the year,
but they're quality players."
Two freshman made
the most of their chances.
Kevin Simontchik scored
in the final minute before
halftime and Rueben
Bohdanets scored twice
in the first ten minutes
of the second half to seal
the Bobcats' (9-4, 7-3 in
District 4A-11) 8-0 win.
"I'm happy to get off
the field as quick as I can,
I'm happy we took care
of business and could get
some rest," Gregoire said.
North Port beat Lemon
Bay 4-0 on Monday, and
faces Lakewood Ranch
on Thursday in another
district game.
Tuesday was a good
opportunity for some
JV players to gain expe-
rience, but it could also
be a tune-up for them to
play later this season.
The Bobcats have been
dealing with injury and ill-
ness lately- flu, separated
shoulder and concussion
are all on the list so
Gregoire needs the help.
Sophomores Connor
McKinley, Tyler Smolik
and Tyler Blizzard also saw
varsity action Tuesday.

DeSoto County shows improvement in losing rematch


By DAWN KLEMISH

PORT CHARLOTTE Even
after a 68-55 win against DeSoto
County High School on Tuesday
night, Port Charlotte coach Kevin
Purcell found things his team
needed to improve.
"I'm just not happy with the

them, give them all the credit.
"They had a very aggressive
night and took it to us, it was
definitely not the effort I want


from us though."
The Pirates' (12-3) offense
rolled early but DeSoto County
found holes in the defense,
something Purcell corrected
quickly. The scoring difference
that was six points after the first
quarter opened to 11 by the half
and 18 by the third quarter as the
Pirates employed their stifling
ball pressure.

By ROB SHORE
SPORTS WRITER
PUNTA GORDA-
Maddison Krstec didn't
want another second
half letdown like North
Port High School had
last week against Venice.
So she made sure there
wouldn't be one.
Pretty quickly, too.
In the opening seconds
of the second half against
Charlotte, Mackenzie
Combs streaked in toward
goal, blasting a shot that
Tarpons keeper Jesse
Valerius parried away. But
the save deflected right to
Krstec, who buried it in
the net.
The goal was one of
a career-high five goals
for the freshman in the
Bobcats' 6-1 victory over
the Tarpons on Tuesday
night.
"It was important (we
didn't let down)," Krstec
said. "We really needed
it."
There wasn't much
doubt by halftime. The
Bobcats (7-6, 5-6 in
District 4A-11) already
held a 4-0 lead. Krstec
had three of those and
fellow forward Hunter
Carrell bagged the other
one.

* WINTER OLYMPICS:



Figure skating to air live on NBC


By RACHEL COHEN
ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEWYORK The first full day
of February's Sochi Olympics,
American television viewers can
watch a marquee event live from
Russia in the morning.
In a shift from NBC's coverage
of past games outside North
America, nearly every figure
skating performance will air on
cable during the day, with the key
moments shown on tape delay
on the main network that night
as in previous Olympics.
So if fans want, they will see
the women's gold-medal-winning
performance on NBCSN when
it happens, instead of waiting


until that evening. But they can
also watch it again hours later,
accompanied by the polished fea-
tures that are the staple of NBC's
prime-time broadcasts.
"First and foremost, our mis-
sion is to protect prime time -
that's still the No. 1 priority," said
Jim Bell, the executive producer
for NBC Olympics.
But the other priority is to get
more people to pay attention,
and for those who already care to
stick around longer. Meanwhile,
technology kept evolving, and
at the 2012 Summer Games in
London, NBC started streaming
every sport live online.
The network discovered it


didn't hurt prime-time ratings -
and may have even helped.
"We think based on London
those two goals align perfectly,"
Bell said Tuesday. "We took a
risk in streaming everything
live from London. The biggest
takeaway was we amplified and
enhanced the audience's Olympic
experience."
Even with the success of the
streaming in 2012, the network
still received some criticism for
not airing popular events live
on TV. Especially on weekends,
sports fans are used to watching
important games in the early
afternoon. And some people are
unwilling or unable to log into


the online broadcasts, which will
again be available for every sport
from Sochi.
With the last Winter Olympics
in Vancouver, NBC could broad-
cast figure skating live in prime
time. But there is a nine-hour
difference between Sochi and the
U.S. Eastern time zone.
The NBCSN figure skating
coverage starts the morning of
Feb. 8 with the new team event
and goes through the pairs, ice
dance and men's and women's
short programs and free skates.
NBCSN will show 230 total
hours of coverage from Sochi,
which NBC said is a record for a
cable channel.

WOMAN WITH TIES
TO EX-PATRIOT
HERNANDEZ DIES
HARTFORD, Conn.-
Police are investigating
the death of a 27-year-old
woman with ties to Aaron
Hernandez, the former
New England Patriots
player charged with
murder.
Tabitha Perry was
found unconscious and
not breathing inside
a Southington home.
She died Monday. She
survived a car accident
in June that killed
Hernandez's friend
Thaddeus Singleton III.
The state medical exam-
iner's office said Tuesday
that Perry's death required
further study, and police
said they were awaiting
toxicology results.
"There were no sus-
picious circumstances
found at the time of the
investigation," Sgt. Jeffry
Dobratz said in a release.
Hernandez is charged
with murder in the
shooting death of 27-year-
old Odin Lloyd. He has
pleaded not guilty.
Hernandez is also being
sued by Lloyd's family for
worngful death.
Several people with ties
to Hernandez have died in
the past six months.
Robert Valentine,
a brother of Aaron
Hernandez's mother,
died in a crash in August.
Singleton died June 30
when the car he and Perry
were in went off a road in
Farmington, went air-
borne and became lodged
inside a country club
building.
Police have ruled both
crashes were accidents...
A Los Angeles man has been

Labonte to enter
Daytona 500: Bobby Labonte will


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEWYORK -The
Yankees were hit with a
$28 million luxury tax bill,
pushing New York's total
past $250 million since the
penalty began in 2003.
According to Major
League Baseball calcu-
lations sent to teams
Tuesday, the Los Angeles
Dodgers were the only
other team that exceeded
the tax threshold this
year and must pay $11.4
million. Boston finished
just under for the second
straight year, coming in
$225,666 shy of the $178
million mark.
Figures include average
annual values of contracts
for players on 40-man ros-
ters, bonuses and escala-
tors, adjustments for cash
in trades and $10.8 million
per team in benefits.
Because the Yankees
have been over the tax
threshold at least four
consecutive times, they
pay at a 50 percent rate
on the overage, and their
$28,113,945 bill was
second only to their $34.1
million payment following
the 2005 season. The
Yankees are responsible
for $252.7 million of the
$285.1 million in tax paid
by all clubs over the past
11 years.
Yankees owner Hal
Steinbrenner said he
hopes to get under the
threshold next year, when
it rises to $189 million.
That would reset the
team's tax rate to 12.5
percent for 2015 and get
the Yankees some reve-
nue-sharing refunds.
But following agree-
ments Tuesday on a $2
million, one-year deal
with second baseman
Brian Roberts and a $7
million, two-year contract
with left-hander Matt
Thornton, the Yankees are

at $177.7 million for 15
players next year, when
benefits are likely to total
between $11 million and
$12 million. Their only
hope to get below the
threshold appears to be
if an arbitrator upholds
most of Alex Rodriguez's
211-game suspension,
relieving the team of a
large percentage of the
third baseman's $25
million salary.
Tax money is used to
fund player benefits.
The Yankees signed
the 36-year-old Roberts,
who has not played a full
season since 2009 because
of injuries, to replace
Robinson Cano at second.

Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo.,
where he dressed so many times as

that the Royals intend to compete for
the AL Central. The Royals introduced
their new second baseman one day
after announcing a $30.25 million,
four-year deal that includes a club
option for 2018. "1I think they're close
to taking the next step,"lnfante said.

Around the league:
Baltimore agreed to a two-year, $15
million contract with former Oakland
closer Grant Balfour pending a physical.
He replaces Jim Johnson, who had 50
saves in each of the past two seasons
and was dealt to the A's this month.
Balfour, who turns 36 on Dec. 30, went
1-3 with 38 saves last season. ...
Free-agent outfielder Michael
Morse, expected to start in left field,
finalized a $6 million, one-year contract
with the San Francisco Giants ...
Pitcher Masahiro Tanaka wants to
move to Major League Baseball next
season but his Japanese team doesn't
want to let him go. MLB and Nippon
Professional Baseball's new posting
system caps the fee for players at $20
million, less than half what Japanese
teams received for pitchers Yu Darvish
and Daisuke Matsuzaka.

Buzzer beaten: USF tips FGCU in 20Ts


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
TAMPA- Victor Rudd
scored seven of his 23
points in the second
overtime, lifting South
Florida to a 68-66 victory
over Florida Gulf Coast on
Tuesday night.
The game ended on
a critical call. With 0.3
seconds remaining, FGCU
guard Jamail Jones threw
an inbounds pass over
7-foot-3 center Jordan
Omogbehin to Chase
Fieler at the opposite end
of the court.
Fieler caught the
ball and dropped in a
short jumper as he fell
backward out of bounds.
The shot was ruled too
late because it was not a
tip-in.
Bernard Thompson
scored 25 of his ca-
reer-high 32 points for
FGCU (5-5) after USF (7-2)
took a 23-21 halftime lead.
Teammate Brett Comer

the only two in the first
overtime until Chris Perry
pulled USF even at 55 with
37 seconds to go. Comer
missed a desperation shot
from long range as time
ran out, forcing a second

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
DURHAM, N.C.-
Another undefeated start
for No. 2 Duke. Another
high-profile meeting with
Connecticut. Another
lopsided loss.
The top-ranked Huskies
(11-0) spoiled a perfect
start by Duke, blowing out
the Blue Devils 83-61 on
Tuesday night.
The Blue Devils (10-1)
went 81/2 minutes between
baskets while missing
12 shots in a row during
the pivotal stretch that
brought the end of their
24-game winning streak at
Cameron Indoor Stadium
- a run that dated to
UConn's last visit in 2011.
"I think I would be less
than honest if I said I
thought we could come
in here and win by 20,"
coach Geno Auriemma
said. "Simply because
we haven't played in (12
days)."
UConn got a ca-
reer-high seven 3-pointers
from Kaleena Mosqueda-
Lewis in her first game


back from injury. Breanna
Stewart had 24 points
and 11 rebounds for the
Huskies (11-0).

as an all-purpose player.
Carey, a junior, is
second in the nation in
rushing after leading last
year, but said he thinks
he's a better player now.
"I worked hard to
improve my speed and
strength in the offseason
while keeping my speed,"
Carey said. "I put on 10
pounds of weight and I
think that's helped my
durability. I also wanted
to be a better blocker
away from the ball.
Blocking for our quarter-
back and our receivers is
key to our system and it's
important that I do my
part even when I'm not
carrying the ball."
Carey and Williams

the same field this bowl
season when Arizona and
Boston College meet in

Michigan's Rob Lytle and
Southern California's

Mosley, a senior, was
the leading tackler for a
defense that ranked fifth
in the country in yards

Florida State defensive
tackle Timmy Jernigan

along with offensive tack-

An improbable path to celebrity


By STEVEN WINE
ASSOCIATED PRESS
DAVIE- Among all of
the Miami Dolphins, idle
tackle Jonathan Martin
knows the team's new
celebrity safety the best,
because they played
together in college.
So when Michael
Thomas made a
game-winning intercep-
tion in his NFL debut and
found himself mobbed
by teammates who didn't
even know his name,
Martin was quick to send
a congratulatory text
message, coast to coast
and Stanford alum to

"That means a lot,"
Thomas said Tuesday.
"Jonathan was one of my
best friends at Stanford. I
looked up to Jon."
Thomas said Martin's
still rooting for Miami,
despite his allegations
of daily harassment by
teammates that prompt-
ed him to leave the team
in October. The bullying
scandal threatened to
sabotage the season, but
instead the Dolphins
(8-6) have gone 5-2 since
Martin went home to
California, and they'll
clinch a wild-card playoff

berth if they win their
final two games.
The Dolphins are
winning thanks to a
broad cross-section of
contributors, none more
improbable than Thomas.
"Michael Thomas, the
new superstar," coach Joe
Philbin said Tuesday.
Undrafted out of
college, Thomas joined
the Dolphins last week
when they signed him off
the San Francisco 49ers'
practice squad, where he
had spent the past two
seasons. Once in town,
he worked with Miami's
scout squad but didn't
practice with the defense,
and was expected to play
only on special teams
Sunday against the New
England Patriots.
But when cornerbacks
Brent Grimes and Nolan
Carroll left the game


with injuries, nickel back
JimmyWilson switched
to corner, and Thomas
found himself in the
game at safety with four
minutes left.
In the final minute,
with Miami leading 24-20,
Tom Brady tried to pull
off the Patriots' fourth
consecutive comeback
victory, and a completion
gave them a first down at
the Dolphins' 19 with 27
seconds to play.
Brady threw for the end
zone on first down, but
Thomas leaped and swat-
ted the ball out of Danny
Amendola's grasp. After
two more incompletions,
Brady threw Thomas' way
again on fourth down,
and he jumped again to
intercept a pass intended
for Austin Collie.
"I thought about all
the hardships I had been
through to try to get
to this one moment,"
he said. "Later, when I
talked to my mom, it was
really emotional. She had
prayed for me all the time
and told me, 'Keep the
faith. Keep working. You'll
get your shot. When you
get it, take advantage.' For
it to actually happen was
great."

Broncos sign ex-Jag Mincey


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
ENGLEWOOD, Colo.
-The Denver Broncos
bolstered their defensive
line Tuesday by signing
defensive end Jeremy
Mincey, who was released
by Jacksonville after a
falling-out with manage-
ment last week.
Mincey reunites
with Denver defensive
coordinator Jack Del
Rio, who was his head
coach with the Jaguars
earlier in his career, and
with Broncos run-stuffer
Terrance Knighton, whom
he played alongside
for several seasons in
Jacksonville.
To make room, the
Broncos waived center J.D.
Walton, who hasn't played
this season after suffering
a setback last summer
in his return from ankle
surgery. Walton started the
first 36 games of his NFL
career in Denver but went
on IR four games into the
2012 season with an ankle
injury and never played
again.
The Broncos (11-3),
who own the league's
23rd-ranked defense, have
sorely missed defensive
tackles DerekWolfe (ill-
ness) and KevinVickerson
(hip), who went on IR
last month. Against the
Chargers last week, they

allowed 103 yards rushing
on first down and Ryan
Mathews became the first
running back to top 100
yards on them all season.
Mincey, 30, had eight
sacks in 2011 and three
last season, starting 16
games both years. This
season, he had two
sacks in eight games as a
reserve.

Lions coach focused on
games, not job security:

interested in talking about his job
security.

but may miss the playoffs after losing

needs to win its final two games and
hope for a combination of losses by
division leader Chicago and Green Bay
to secure a playoff berth.
"I don't think it does any good
for me or my team to keep focusing
on that," he said after being asked if
he's worried about losing his job. He
declined to elaborate on what he's
thinking about his future or if he's
spoken with owner William Clay Ford
recently.

Ravens show resilience
win over Lions: Overcoming
adversity seems to be a way of life for
the Baltimore Ravens, who flourish in
situations that usually provoke panic
and doubt.
The Ravens fueled their late-season
playoff run Monday night by using a
beat-the-clock drive and a remarkable
kick to pull out an exhilarating 18-16
victory in Detroit.


Just a month ago, the defending
Super Bowl champions were 4-6. Now
they're 8-6, in command of the final
AFC wild card and still in the running
for another division title.
The defending Super Bowl cham-
pions host New England on Sunday
before closing the season at Cincinnati.
Baltimore can capture the AFC North
title by winning both games.

Saints release K Hartley:
The New Orleans Saints released kicker
Garrett Hartley, two days after he had
) one field goal blocked and hooked
another wide in a 27-16 loss at St.
Louis.
Hartley has been with the Saints
since the middle of the 2008 season
and made several crucial kicks during
the Saints'2009-10 run to a Super Bowl
championship.
However, his career has been
up-and-down since, and he has been
particularly erratic this season, missing
eight of 29 kicks inside 50 yards.

Around the league: The
Dallas Cowboys placed LB Justin Durant
on season-ending injured reserve ...
The Jacksonville Jaguars placed WR
Cecil Shorts III and G Will Rackley on
IR. ...
The Pittsburgh Steelers placed LB
LaMarrWoodleyon IRwith his second
significant calf injury of the season. ...
The Indianapolis Colts placed LB Pat
Angerer onIR, ending his season ...
Cincinnati's Kevin Huber is
scheduled for surgery on Friday for his
broken jaw, a season-ending injury that
left the Bengals looking for another
punter during their playoff surge.

Kicker


gets one


foot in


the Hall

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
ENGLEWOOD, Colo.
The Pro Football Hall
of Fame will get the right
cleat that Matt Prater
wore when he kicked
the longest field goal in
history.
Just not for a while.
"Yeah, they asked for
the cleats. I said I'd give
them to them after the
season," Prater told The
Associated Press.
If the Denver Broncos
(11-3) and their strong-
legged kicker can help
it, that package won't be
arriving in Canton, Ohio,
until after the Super Bowl
in February.
Jason Aikens, collections
curator for the Hall of
Fame, said it's not unusual
for kickers who set records
to wait until after the
season to give up their
cleats because there's a
lot involved in breaking
in a new kicking shoe
and kickers aren't fond of
changing shoes during a
hot streak or following a
record-breaking kick.
"I use the same ones for
the whole season," said
Prater, an Estero High
School graduate who also
played at Central Florida.
"I have some I practice
with and some I wear in
games."
Prater kicked a 64-yard
field goal on the last play
of the first half against
Tennessee in 14-degree
weather on Dec. 8 in
Denver, sparking the
Broncos' 51-28 comeback
win over the Titans.
That broke the record
of 63 yards set by Tom
Dempsey in 1970 and tied
by Jason Elam, Sebastian
Janikowski and David
Akers.
Aikens said he hopes
to receive Prater's No. 5
jersey from that game
soon.
"They wanted the ball,
too," Prater said. "I kept
the ball. I'll give them my
cleats if they really want
them. I change those
about every year or so."


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
TUSCALOOSA, Ala.
-Alabama coach Nick
Saban and the football
team are moving on.
Saban has put to rest
the speculation that he
would replace Mack
Brown at Texas by striking
a new deal with Alabama.
For the third-ranked
Crimson Tide, the focus
is on getting over the loss
to Auburn and trying to
finish the season strong
in the Jan. 2 Sugar Bowl
against No. 11 Oklahoma.
Saban had said Friday
night after agreeing to a
new contract reportedly
worth about $7 million a
year that he planned to
retire at Alabama.
He said "there were no


talks" between his repre-
sentatives and Texas and
pointed to comments on
ESPN that he "never con-
sidered going to Texas."
Brown announced his
resignation on Saturday.
Several Texas regents
and a former regent were
involved in a meeting with
Saban's agent last January
to gauge the coach's in-
terest in coming to Texas.
Saban found the best way
to quash that talk: Re-
upping with the Tide.
Alabama (11-1) returned
to the practice field on
Tuesday for the first time
since the Iron Bowl.
The game was tied
until Chris Davis returned
a missed field goal 109
yards for a touchdown on
the final play to effectively


end Alabama's bid for a
third straight national
championship.
"It's not for a national
championship or any-
thing, but we're going to
go into it like it is," said
defensive end Jeoffrey
Pagan.

USF's Lynch declares for
draft: South Florida DE Aaron Lynch
will enter the NFL draft after playing
one season at South Florida. A redshirt
sophomore who has two years of
eligibility remaining, was a first-team
AII-AAC selection and led the Bulls with
six sacks and 12.5 tackles for losses
while finishing with 30 total tackles.
Lynch was a projected first-rounder
by some draft analysts entering the
season, but his stock has since fallen.

Washington player's
death linked to cocaine:


The death of former first-round NFL
draft pick Reggie Rogers has been
linked to cocaine. The King County
Medical Examiner's Office said that
Rogers'death in October was due to
a combination of cocaine and alcohol
intoxication. Officials determined his
death was accidental.

Clowney healthy, wants
strong finish: Remember when
South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney
was a preseason Heisman Trophy candi-
date? After being slowed by nagging
injuries, Clowner said he's healthy as
he's been all season and is ready to end
his career strongly at the Capital One
Bowl. The eighth-ranked Gamecocks
(10-2) face No. 19 Wisconsin (9-3)
on New Year's Day. The 6-foot-6,
274-pound junior has dealt with
bone spurs in his foot and a strained
muscle near his ribs this season, along
with double- and triple-teams from
opposing teams.

Pirates




split with





Mustangs


Port Charlotte
boys cruise,
girls struggle

By CHUCK BALLARO
SUN CORRESPONDENT
PORT CHARLOTTE-
The Port Charlotte High
School girls soccer team
couldn't have drawn a
worse opponent on senior
night. Meanwhile, the boys
couldn't have played on a
better field.
The Mustang girls scored
three goals in a six-minute
span early in the first half
and cruised to a 6-1 victory
Tuesday night in a District
4A- 11 match.
Lakewood Ranch (14-0-
1, 10-0-1 district) remained
unbeaten on the season
thanks to an early barrage
that sank the Pirates and
the nine seniors being
honored before the game.
The games were played
in the football stadium to
accommodate the pre-game
festivities. The field was
100 yards long, which
made for tight quarters.
The claustrophobic
conditions (by soccer
standards) were but an
inconvenience for the
Mustangs, as they scored
on a long goal from Bri
Reda in the ninth minute
to make it 1-0.
Two minutes later, Talia
Falco scored, then scored
again four minutes later
off a comer kick to make
it 3-0, before Lindsay
Martinez added another
on a penalty kick to make
it 4-0 at halftime against
the overmatched Pirates
(5-6-3, 3-6-2).
Martinez scored again
for Lakewood Ranch in the
64th minute before Port
Charlotte finally got on the

Venice, when North Port
was handcuffed by a lack
of scoring chances.
"We played well
tonight," Bobcats coach
Lee Thomas said. "I was
extremely happy with
my midfield. I think they
played really strong. We
worked on traps and
controlling the ball and
making controlled passes.
I think against Venice, our
weakness was the ball
kicking 10 yards off our
foot."
Charlotte (4-8-2,
2-7) got its lone goal
from Emilie Booth in
the second half. The
Tarpons were playing
without several starters,
including Magen Lowe,
Taylor Doeble and Savana
Burdick-Perez.
But the Tarpons couldn't
stop Krstec.
"Defending No. 7
(Krstec) isn't the problem,"

board on an Alexis Arroyo
penalty kick in the 67th
minute.
Julia Ortiz ended the
scoring for the Mustangs
with a goal in the closing
minutes.
"I didn't get a chance to
play my normal starting
lineup, but I was proud
of the way they played
in the second half," Port
Charlotte coach Chip Stec
said.
Earlier in the night,
the boys game produced
much more drama as
Garrett Kelley scored two
of Port Charlotte's three
second-half goals to rally it
past Lakewood Ranch 3-1.
Trailing 1-0 at the break,
the Pirates (4-6-1, 3-4-1)
took the momentum as
Kelley took a pass from
Sandre Williams, broke
through and scored in
the 45th minute to tie the
game.
Williams broke the dead-
lock in the 58th minute off
a deflection from Nicholas
Dunakey for a 2-1 Pirate
lead, before Kelley put the
game on ice in the 73rd
minute on a header off a
Roni Anarumo corner kick.
Mike Bakogiannis made
several big second-half
saves, got a few lucky
bounces off the crossbar
and stopped a penalty kick
that would have given the
Mustangs (4-6-3, 2-3) a
2-0 lead, while the defense
used the smaller field to
neutralize the speed of
Lakewood Ranch, which
got a Felipe Dangond goal
in the 15th minute to get
on the board first.

Ivankovic said. "She's
good, she's fast, she wants
the ball. They really have
one system of play: The
ball comes to the back
and they boot the ball
over our back line, (Krstec)
runs onto it and (Carrell)
joins her and that's their
attack.
"If we could take care of
the ball in the forward and
midfield position, we'd
take away that option."
But Thomas wasn't
about to downplay the
importance of Krstec, who
leads the Bobcats with
20 goals this season. The
team's season record is 28,
held by Kalina Dejoy.
"We've got an extremely
talented forward," Thomas
said. "I'd been preaching
to them to get the ball,
get control, look up and
see the space between the
defenders and let her go.
That's her strength. We did
that extremely effectively
tonight."

The Bulldogs (6-8) kept
their turnovers low but
also had to spend pre-
cious minutes battling for
an open shot. Even then,
Port Charlotte worked to
ensure DeSoto County
was often trailing behind
in the open court due to
their fast-break.
"We weren't getting
back fast enough and we
gave them a lot of easy
layups," DeSoto County
coach Joe Davis said.
"That really hurt us."
Port Charlotte scored
on fast breaks and long-
range 3-pointers, bank
shots and putbacks. The
lone chink in the Pirates'
armor was in that one
of their top playmakers,
Taylor Lindsey, picked up
her second foul midway
through the second
quarter and third before
the half, limiting her time
on the court.
She still managed 18
points, six rebounds and
four assists.
On the other end,
forward Tishonna Riley
and guard Ladeja Dennis
kept the Bulldogs com-
petitive by scoring 22 and

the business. We now call him our 'charge man' as
he does everything from hand tossing pizza crust,
cooking Italian dishes, and directing the overall
operation of the restaurant."

marinara, carbonara and Alfredo sauces, toppings
for an assortment of pasta dishes featured on their

"At night our outdoor patio becomes a winter
wonderland during the holiday season," said Dawn
Marie, whose hand-painted murals adorn the outside
walls of their historic building.

What would an English
pub be without dart-
boards? There are lots of
them at the Icehouse Pub.


ce House Pub offers good food, drinks and darts


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Sometimes, what seems like the worst thing that
could happen is actually a blessing in disguise.
When Hurricane Charley emerged from the Gulf
of Mexico in 2004, Charlotte County took a direct
hit and so did John and Pauline Berry. But out of
the rubble of that monster storm, theyfound a new
hobby, and subsequently, a new livelihood.
"After the hurricane, we lost our house," John
Berry said. "Then someone brought us this mahogany
dartboard, and I had never played. I got in this (dart)
league in Cape Coral, and my wife nagged me for a
year and finally said, 'Why don't you open up a pub
and put a dartboard in it?'"
In February of 2008, that is just what the Berrys did.
Ironically, the building they chose for their pub
had suffered during the hurricane, too. The 1890s
structure, which had been used as an ice plant for
Charlotte County's fishing industry, had lost its roof
and one of the walls in the high winds of the storm.
But the building's owners decided to rebuild the
historic structure instead of tearing it down.
With its high ceilings and exposed brick walls, the


Berrys thought it was the perfect spot for their new
place, The Icehouse Pub.
"The whole concept is an authentic British pub,"
Berry said. "It was set up to be a place to come and
play darts, drink beer and eat really good food."
Though there are ten regulation-sized dartboards
and several leagues who regularly play there, you do
not have to be a dart player to enjoy this pub. Darts are
played in a separate room from the rest of the casual
restaurant/bar and you can even sit out on the patio
and watch sports on the big screen, if you choose.
There are more than 26 beers on tap, plenty of
bottled beers and wine bythe glass or the bottle. But
Berry says that one of the main attractions at this
popular pub is the food.
"On the British side of the menu, the biggest seller
is the fish and chips, which we can also do grilled or
blackened," he said. "On the American side, we have won
the best cheeseburger five years in a row in Charlotte
County. We have a small menu, we make everything
from scratch and we make it consistently good."
And as long-time residents of the Punta Gorda
community, who consider themselves fortunate to
have been able to come back from a devastating


situation, the Berrys also make a conscious effort to
give back whenever possible. Last weekend, they held
a large dart tournament which was a charity event
for Toys for Tots. The pub was a drop-off point for
donations and Marines were onsite to collect them.
The Icehouse Pub is at 408 Tamiami Trail North, in


downtown Punta Gorda, and is open from 11 a.m. to
2 a.m. Mondaythrough Saturday, and from noon to
12 a.m Sunday. For information about charity events,
dart happenings or musical entertainment, visit the
Facebook page or the website at www.theice
housepub.com, or call 941-575-0866.

Christmas Town grows bigger each

interested in the blood-pressure raising coasters, many
Busch regulars go there for the zoo which has been a
mainstay since the park's beginning.

Pele may be busy doing her maternal duty and out

subject to study at Busch Gardens since 2004. Busch
Gardens also supports study of the species in the
more remote Nouabale-Ndoki National Park in Africa's
northern Congo through the SeaWorld & Busch
Gardens Conservation Fund.
In addition to the ice show, there are a total of
six holiday shows to see while visiting the park for
Christmas. But time is of the essence as Christmas Town
festivities last only until Dec. 23. Christmas Town event
tickets are $40 for adults and $10 for child Dec. 18 and
19, with adult prices increasing to $50 for the final four
nights. Tickets to Mrs. Claus Family Feast are $22 for
adults and $16 for children. For unlimited entry nightly
from now through Dec. 23, admission is $89 for adults
and $29 for children. Purchase tickets online for the
best prices. If you buy tickets at the park, expect to pay
$60 for the evening event. It requires a separate ticket
from daytime park admission, but daytime tickets may

be upgraded for $25 for adults and $10 for
children.
Wear long pants and bring mittens and
hats if you plan to play in the snow for more
than a few minutes. Consider that it is real
snow and really cold. More cool than cold, the
ice show pays homage to angels and features
top skaters. Other shows feature lights, carols,
"Elmo's Christmas Wish"and "Madagascar Live!"
Many of the park's most popular rides such
as Cheetah Hunt and Sheikra also will be open
during Christmas Town hours (6 p.m. to 11 p.m.)

Punta Gorda Isles



Boat Parade a 7-mirn


By GORDON BOWER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
No small town does a boat parade better than
Punta Gorda, which manages to stage two of them
every year before the Christmas holidays, each
attended by tens of thousands of holiday revelers.
The Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce Parade
offers viewers the majestic sight of more than 30
lighted boats parading around beautiful Charlotte
Harbor, with up-close looks at several locations like
Harpoon Harry's and Laishley Park.
The Punta Gorda Isles Boat Parade, always
held the Saturday before Christmas Eve, is a much
different event because it
is held entirely within the
canal system of PGI. IF YOU lG
This presents both chal- WHA:Put a riT
lenges and opportunity for WHEiN:all o
organizers Tom Little and W IHRl ogP
Harris Bowers. Ilt's grown o *
to 40 to 50 boats each BS lVIEWIl lv
year, just about the limit, i
according to Little. Any 'm1
more boats would slow the K IslL
pace and wear out crewsI N:I u m l vj
and captains. The more '' '*' Smo
confined venue also means ua go .ab r.
no majestic views are to l', .e'e- asut
be had of the entire line
of boats.
The organizers instead have learned to take
advantage of the more intimate setting and make it
the main drawing card of the parade.
Little said, "It's an unequivocal fact that the boats
are from 20 to 50 feet off the seawall, and folks
there can talk back and forth with the people on the
boats. That's what makes our parade different."
That communication has increased the past few
years as boaters have learned to do more than just
add lights and canned Christmas musicto their
vessels. Several years ago, Harris himself went
with a theme,"A Christmas Story,"on his boat and
immediately noticed a difference in the crowd
reaction.
He said,"When I changed from lights to a theme,
I got tremendous cheers from the crowd. What
really struck me the most was people saying thank
you. I never got that before."
More captains have taken notice and are decorat-
ing their boats and crews with a theme in mind.
"Boaters are figuring out what to do to
entertain the crowd ... The crowd is there to be
entertained, and we are entertaining
them. We place great emphasis
in our workshop on animated
displays, music and
entertaining the
crowd;' Little -


said of the change in approach.
The workshop is held in November in conjunction
with the chamber parade organizers and drew 100
participants this year who learned it's not difficult
to crank their boats up a notch on the entertain-
ment scale.
"It's really easy,";' Bowers said. "All you need is
some mesh, PVC pipe, black spray paint, tie wraps
and an idea. You can make dolphins, reindeer,
whatever you like."
The houses and parties along the route have
reciprocated in kind. Homeowners throw parties the
night of the parade, and the crowd along the route
has grown to 10,000 to
15,000 people.
"Publix deli has its
Id Isleso lotsa n e biggest nightof the year

"Think about it; deli

pat utsligs gr its That's a lot of parties."
itsDHe and Little are
L AntiDriv going all outto make
W e hnavetd e t sure the boaters get the
l tt:lw love they deserve.
,adei['om'2i12.."We're going for a
chain of lights. The idea
is for people to decorate
their homes and also
do the lots on either side ofthem if someone is not
home or the lot is empty;' Bowers said. "The goal
is to get as many homes lit as we can along the
parade route. If it goes by your house, you better
put up lights, or it's bah humbug on you."
The overall theme for this year is"Make a Joyful
Noise,;' and the crowd is being urged to contribute
its share.
"We have extended that theme to the crowd;'
Bowers said. "We are encouraging people to bring
cowbells, sleigh bells, tambourines and to use them
to cheer for their favorite boat."
If you're not lucky enough to live on the route or
get invited to the worlds longest party, there are
plenty of empty lots along the parade route where
crowds can gather. Don't forget to bring chairs,
food, libations and noisemakers to become part of
the party.
The parade kicks off around 6 p.m. at Albatross
Drive and Bal Harbor Boulevard and lasts several
hours. Bowers asked attendees to remember this
while watching the boats go by: "The boaters are
there for the crowd, and the crowd is there for the
boaters ... No gifts, no prizes, no trophies,
no awards. The only thing
boaters are
getting is cheers
and applause."

GO AT THE THEATER


Irk6 I Ml


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Some Christmas traditions are nearly becoming
etched in stone.
Venice Theatre's annual production of Charles
Dickens"A Christmas Carol"is one of the most
enduring holiday traditions here on the Culture
Coast. It has become a family affair for many in the
community theater's family.
This year is the 14th consecutive year of what is
also becoming a family affair for the theater.
"A Christmas Carol is one of my favorite things
to do each season,";' director Murray Chase said


in a recent release. "Young people return each
year, playing new roles as they get older. College
students plan their Christmas breaks around the
show. And entire families work together in the cast
and crew. It's a wonderful tradition that's been a
part of our theatre for almost 15 years."
Chase is the theater's executive director. In
keeping with family traditions at Venice Theatre,
Chase's wife Lori is the theater's event coordinator.
This version of"A Christmas Carol"features music
bythe late E. Susan Ott, with lyrics and additional
music by local teacher director and writer Scott Keys

Sarasota Ritz offers aerial silk messages


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
For three thousand years, people in the Far
East have known the benefits of a specific type of
massage called Ashiatsu.
With a Japanese name that translates into "foot
pressure,"
Ashiatsu isa '
bodywork form
that applies ther-
apeutic pressure,

health and ,
well- being. ..

can also use their
knees, elbows,
palms, and fin-
gers during this
treatment, which
typically includes

lation or sedation

techniques. In a
variation of this
ancient thera- -
peutic approach, ,
The Ritz-Carlton
Sarasota has
developed a
new treatment
called Aerial Silk With aerial silk massage, mas
Massage, and stabilize themselves during tl
at $165 for a
50-minute session, it's already becoming one of the
most popular services there.
During traditional Ashiatsu massage, a therapist
holds onto ceiling bars to maintain her balance
while using her feet to perform deep tissue work on
the client's back and body.
In a nod to Sarasota's circus history as the winter
home of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and
Bailey Circus, during the Aerial Silk Massage, the
therapist will hold onto aerial silks similar to what
a circus aerialist would use during a routine to
stabilize herself.
"The Aerial Silk Massage combines the art and
healing properties of Ashiatsu with a truly engaging
experience of mind and bodyfor a treatment that
helps not only aches and pains, but also the guest's
energy or'chi,'said Veljko Savic, Spa director of The
Ritz-Carlton Spa, Sarasota. "This treatment may

seem unconventional, but the use of body weight
and gravity of the therapist make the Aerial Silk

treatment. Later in the
massage, the
therapist will concentrate on specific areas of the
body by controlling her weight distribution and
using the silks as a stabilizer. Each guest can choose
a different therapeutic massage oil, like lavender,
eucalyptus or Florida orange and one of four music
categories: water, nature, ambient and multicultur-
al, to customize their experience.
Ashiatsu massage helps relieve pain and stress,
treat spinal problems and improve posture. It is
particularly popular among sports enthusiasts,
whose musculature may prevent penetration during
a regular hand massage.
"Our Aerial Silk Massage will help guests
transcend the stress of their lives and focus on the
maintenance of their most important resource, their
own bodies;'Savic said. "While we want our guests
to have unique, unforgettable experiences, we also
want them to leave feeling refreshed, relaxed and

wellness and anti-aging treatments using the
beneficial properties of ocean minerals, elixirs
and essential oils to restore, rejuvenate and
refresh the body. These treatments can help

SUN CORRESPONDENT
"I try to pick music that makes you
feel good and makes people want to
dance. It's that simple,";' Debra Biela
stated.
And that's exactlywhat Biela's band,
"Deb and The Dynamics"has been
doing for 10 years at various venues in
Southwest Florida. The six-piece band
plays a mixture of blues, soul, rhythm
and blues, and rock 'n'roll.
According to Biela, lead vocalist
and bass guitarist, the band's name
was chosen because it seemed to best
describe what is most important to
the band feeling the music, and
playing it with feeling is dynamic.
The band has produced five CDs that
include covers and originals. A new .,
recording of all original songs,"New
Orleans,"will be released in 2014.
Originally from Connecticut, Biela In center is
played her first gig at age 16. She are Nick Lor
credits her hard-working ethics to her Michael Bae
Italian heritage. At age 18, she hit the Donald Hul
road as lead singer and bass guitarist
with an all-female band, "Moxxie"for four years.
Biela then settled in Virginia beach where she
joined "The Rhythm and Blues AII-Stars,"an eight-
piece band that shared the stage with the Beach
Boys, Chuck Berry, and others.
"Four years later, playing with some of the
'soul Ifulist'musicians I ever met, the band split up,"
Biela stated.
After moving to Florida, she was offered to tour
the U.S., Europe and Japan by blues artist, Deborah
Coleman, who was a member of the former Moxxie
group in Virginia. They performed to sold-out audi-
ences for four years. Biela was featured on Coleman's
albums,"Living on Love"and"Soul Be It!'
One of the original members of the Dynamics, Newt
Cole, tenor and alto saxophone, and vocalist, is from
Detroit, Mich. He formed a seven-piece band,"Newt

"Average White Band"and"Mitch Ryder'."The band won
the"Best Rhythm and Blues Band"award at the Detroit
Music Festival in 1985. Cole played with two other
bands in Michigan before moving to Florida in 1999.
Donald Hulgas, baritone saxophone and vocalist, was
born and raised in a musical family in Pittsburgh, Pa.
"My dad bought a brand-new tenor saxophone,
and when I opened the case, I was hooked;'he said.
Hulgas moved to Florida in 1982 with his family, and
he played with"Rock and Soul Review"band in 1990.
Drummer Nick Longobardi, aka Nick the Stick, a
Brooklyn native, started rocking the drums at age
12. While attending a Led Zeppelin concert, he was
inspired bythe power and energy of the drummer,
John Bonham. Longobardi played with several bands
in New York and Boston, and has been playing with
the Dynamics for over five years.

Myakka Pines Golf Club:
Unspoiled, Olde Florida


When was the last time you played golf in a truly natural
setting? Do you enjoy hitting your golf ball and strolling down
fairways lined by trees and lakes rather than houses and
pools? Englewood is a quiet, rural area, which is why so many
former Snow Birds choose to live here full time. Myakka Pines
Golf Club is Englewood serenity on steroids! In any round of
golf, while enjoying our lush fairways and excellent greens, you
may see great bald eagles, territorial osprey bright blue
buntings, wise ol' owls, sunbathing alligators, pink spoonbill
cranes and great blue herons.
A member-owned equity club constructed 36 years ago by
I dedicated, creative and forward thinking members, Myakka


Pines Golf Club today offers 27 holes of tournament-quality-
conditions, challenging, strategic and fun golf. As a GOLF
CLUB rather than a Country Club, the focus and financial
investment is all toward the golf course. Greens were
reconstructed in 2008 with mini-verde bermuda. Each of the
three nines is different and challenging in its own right. And,
twenty-seven holes provides the flexibility to accommodate
smooth flow on the course by melding tee time and turning
golfers based on which course has the best availability at the
time. Mickie Zada, the Club's General Manager said iWe are
able to ensure excellent rounds of golf time as well as
enjoyable playing experiences.
One of the best golf membership values in the area, Myakka
Pines Golf Club offers an equity membership and a one-year
non-equity golf pass. Private golf carts may be stored and
used at the Club by equity members; one year non-equity golf
passes include golf cart fees. All members receive free driving
range access and handicap system. Extensive practice areas
are available including chipping and putting greens and driving
range. As the Club's PGA golf professional for 25 years, Frank
Perilli maintains a well stocked golf shop offering apparel and
equipment. River Road Grille is open from 6:30 until dark each
day providing friendly service and offering breakfast and lunch
seven days a week.

Holiday shopping
for cats, toddlers,
essentially the same
As I came home from work Sun-
day night, it occurred to me that
pets and toddlers have essen-
tially the same needs and both are
difficult to negotiate with, to boot.
The first thing I need to do when I
come home (after greeting the people
in the house) is say hello to the dog.
By this time, the cats are meowing
(whining), too. When I go to greet my
feline family in their territory (the
porch), they're all too eager to tell me
how neglected they've been.
So while I entertained them Sunday
with their string toy, it got me thinking.
Cats, like toddlers, are easily amused
by cheap things. Although my cats
have quite the condo to lounge
themselves in, they like to equally play
"fort" in empty boxes and paper bags.
Like most toddlers, it's usually the
packaging that cats prefer to play with
rather than the expensive item inside.
They also like string. And dirt,
especially if they aren't supposed
to be rolling in it.
My cats also love their toddler furni-
ture. My nephew's old Little Tykes play
cube gives my cats a hidey-hole and
places to nap. Ditto for the changing
table. In fact, except for the litter
boxes, you might not be able to tell
this was a cat room. It's even stocked
with old blankets to make nap time
more cozy.
Cats, like toddlers, also have really
short attention spans. Yesterday's
paper bag is no good for a fort today.
They need something new to amuse
themselves with. So rotating toys also
comes in handy for cats as well as kids.
And don't forget snack time.
Crankiness certainly isn't limited to
the toddler set when it comes to the
meal schedule.
So this holiday season, whether you
are shopping for cats or toddlers, you
may want to skip the fancy toys and
go straight for the fishing pole. Or the
cardboard fort. Throw in a ball of the
appropriate size and some noms, and
your shopping is over. If only it was so
easy to shop for teens...

ADVOCATE'S CORNER

For some, a different
kind of Christmas
By DELORES SAVAS
HERALD CORRESPONDENT
Many teenagers in the area will be
asking Santa for new clothes, the new-
est electronic devices and possibly a
car. However, there are approximately
107 unaccompanied youth in the area
who won't be expecting anything.
According to the Charlotte County
Unaccompanied Youth Stats 2012-13
School Year provided by Chantal
Phillips, Director of the Director of
Intervention & Dropout Prevention
Services, four teens live in emergency/
transitional shelters, 98 share housing
with other people, three live in motels

HERALD CORRESPONDENT
On Dec. 6, a reception honored artist
Lionel Lewis and celebrated his art.
Friends joined Lewis at the Unitarian
Universalist Fellowship of Charlotte
County to enjoy his paintings, which
reflect his roots in the Caribbean.
Lewis' whimsical, vividly colorful
paintings were admired by all.
"I love it!" said Joan Mayo, who
studies art with Lewis at the Visual Arts
Center in Punta Gorda. "I love the color;
I love the surprises; I love the birds!"
"When I see the paintings, it makes
me think of Salvador Dali and his surreal
art," added Carolyn Kellar. "The compass
on the bird reminds me of Dali's melting
clock. And I love the vibrant colors!"
Lewis left his home in Trinidad to
attend college in New York City, where
he studied at the American Art Academy.
He began by doing pen and ink drawings
as he rode the subways and walked the
streets of New York. At the suggestion of
a friend, he added color and pastels.
When Lewis moved to Port Charlotte
20 years ago, his art took a backseat to
family responsibilities.

HOLIDAY PROGRAM


rthur Fiedler, conductor of the
famed Boston Pops Orchestra,
one of the best-known orchestras
in the country, was planning on being
in Miami in the summer of 1967. My
father was a huge lover of classical
music and admired Arthur Fiedler,
Toscanini and Leonard Bernstein,
along with several others.
My love of classical music emanated
from Dad at an early age. I can remem-
ber getting off the bus from work one
afternoon and while walking the half
block to home, heard Ravel's Bolero
blaring away. I knew right away that Dad
must have finished building the high
fidelity system that he had been working
on for some time. The time consuming
and laborious finale was putting togeth-
er the McIntosh turntable.
In the back corner of my mind,
I remember Dad telling me that when
my mother, Grace, was living in Boston,
Arthur Fiedler had rented a room in the
same boarding home as my mother.
They became friends and remained so
for many years.

"Then I found the Visual Art Center,
and that got me back into the spirit of
painting," Lewis said.
As he returned to painting, he
created mostly landscapes.
"Then I met an instructor who
changed my direction," Lewis said.
Instructor Alberto Cruz introduced
Lewis to abstract art.
"He encouraged me to add something
unusual to give the viewer a surprise,"
Lewis explained. "So I paint a bird with
a compass, or a bird with an arrow.
Something unexpected. I love color.
Coming from the Caribbean, I grew up
with color. I avoid dark colors and focus
on reds, yellows, greens, and blues."
"He has developed a unique style,"
Cruz said about Lewis. "I have been
very impressed with his ability to cre-
ate and learn, and by how well he has
progressed. He has been a quick study.
He'll make a name for himself."
Music for the reception was provided
by the Backroom Gang from Janet
Jones Group Home.
"The young adults singing and
playing was a real highlight of the
reception," said Rev. Amy Kindred,
minister of the Unitarian Universalist
Fellowship. "Their joy was contagious;
they were delightful."
"And the art of Lionel Lewis is wildly
fascinating," added Kindred.
Longtime friend Peg Stunkard
arranged for Lewis' art to be
exhibited at the Fellowship and

DIFFERENT: Some Port Charlotte residents struggling through holiday season


FROM PAGE 1
Of these 107 youth, 48 were enrolled
in Charlotte County Public Schools
during the 2012-13 school years. Twenty-
one graduated, six dropped out, six went
to another district, five are unknown and
one is homeschooled. Forty four were
seniors, and five are still enrolled.

Student couch surfing
to stay in school
Amber Veldez, 17, a junior at Port
Charlotte High School, has been an
unaccompanied youth for the past five
years. This means she has not had a
real home to call her own to go back to
at the end of a school day.
Amber has depended on the help
of friends and their families who have
taken her in and treated her as family.
She has lived in many homes during
the past five years in order to stay in
school and graduate, while many other
students drop out of school.
Why is she so determined to finish
school?
"I realize that everything in life
is about learning something, being
something and becoming successful.
That is my opinion as I see myself in
the future," Veldez said.
Her family life was chaotic, living in
different states and with other family
members. It never turned out well.
"I don't blame my mother for the
choices she made, but I have had to live
with the consequences of those choices.
I am determined not to repeat the same
cycle over and over again. I will decide
what to do with my life. I don't want to
have to depend on anyone. All my life I
have had to depend on everyone. I want
only to depend on myself," Veldez said.
Right now, Veldez is a good student
and is also enrolled in the Patient Care
Assistant program. If she likes it, she
may continue on to LPN or a higher
nursing profession.
"I don't know yet what I want to be. I
know college is out of my reach. I will go
step by step until I decide," Veldez said.
She recently started a part-time job
working at Walgreens so she could have
some pocket money to buy items she
needs.
Asked what she wanted for Christmas,
Veldez said, "I have no expectations.
I really don't need or expect anything ...
I do depend on my prayers and God
has always been there for me," Veldez
said.

Disabled, divorced
and determined
TanaWilson and her son, Denim, 15,
live in the Parkside area. Tana had
been an active dance instructor at the
Cultural Center when she was diag-
nosed with MS and is now 100 percent
disabled. Now as a divorced mom, she

cles, but have each other and the support of
their neighbors.

is not letting her illness keep her from
doing as much as she can to make sure
her son has all the support and oppor-
tunities she can provide.
At times she could not get up out
of bed, and when she could, she
was faced with challenges such as a
leaky 1996 car that is barely running
and learning to survive on the small
amount of funds from her disability
and government checks.
Along with food stamps and clipping
coupons, she said they have learned
how to make do.
That also means hanging clothes
outside, unplugging all electric devises
and curtailing driving.
"In talking to young people, they
did not know what a clothes line or
laundry pins were," Tana said.
When asked about her taking advan-
tage of area churches serving meals she
said, "We have to watch our gas."
Tana is known for volunteering
for many local groups such as the
Alzheimer's groups, the Charlotte County
Homeless Coalition and many more.
"I don't want to live my illness and
feel sorry for myself. I have learned
what to do or not do. I have no upper
strength. I depend on my son a lot and
the grace of God," Tana said.
Denim and Tana have a mutual
admiration for each other.
Tana said, "My son is my miracle. I had
to wait a long time to have him. I am very
proud of him. He is active in the Sheriff's
Explorer program, Special Olympics
games, helping out veterans in the
neighborhood and others in his area."
Denim said, "My mother is great and

has done a lot for me. I don't have a
Dad so her love goes both ways. I also
love volunteering, it makes me feel good."
Denim does not want, or play video
games.
"I am too busy," Denim said.
Mary Ann Basco, who is the 4th area
Captain of the Neighborhood Watch in
Parkside, said, "Tana is a good mother
and lady and volunteers a lot. She is
having a hard time financially and has
raised a great kid."
Tana, who lives in Basco's area said,
"I love living in the Parkside. It is
what neighborhoods used to be like."
Everyone is getting to know their neigh-
bors and they help each other. When
I send my son outside, I always know
where he is at by just calling a neighbor
if I have to. The Neighborhood Watch
Program has helped."
Tana and Denim don't have much,
but they do have each other, good
neighbors and friends.

program director Jocelyn Brewer and held at the First Presbyterian Church in Port Charlotte.


"The Little Drummer Boy" was performed by
Jullian Clapp and his 4- and 5-year-old class-
mates in Ashlee Burlison's class.


Family fun at the annual Kingsway Elementary PTO-sponsored Winter Palooza included nonstop
games, craft stations, Simon Says, pizza and holiday face painting like that of Olivia Chapin's
Santa and her fifth-grade classmate Isabella Tiseo as a reindeer.


Using cereal, the Leslie children Dominick, second-grade, Seth, kindergarten, and Kaylee,
third-grade were making bracelets while at the Winter Palooza.


Carlos Bigord and his twin daughters, Jada and Alexia who graduated from Kingsway Elementary
last year and are now attending Murdock Middle, returned for the winter event to help with the
entertainment that Bigord is known for. Simon Says was a huge success with the children.

Naval Junior ROTC cadets


go on sea cruise at MacDill


By ARIANNA BURNS
ROTC MEDIA LIAISON
On Nov. 6, Port Charlotte High
Naval Junior ROTC cadets ventured
to Rattlesnake, Tampa, to go to
the MacDill Air Force Base Naval
Operations Service Center to board a
40-by-12-foot U.S. Navy patrol ship.
The cadets were a select few chosen
by their commitment and participa-
tion to the unit. These cadets skipped
school to partake in this unique
opportunity. Cadets Lukas Phillips,
Justin Bartley, Brandon Coffey and
Matthew Baumgardt got the chance to
be the designated drivers of the boats.


On his first ship-steering experience,
Cadet Bartley commented, "It was
really great and much easier than I
expected. I never imagined that I would
be able to drive a Navy ship and I wish
I could do it again!"
At the end, the Navy personnel
demonstrated the procedure for a
person who falls overboard. While they
had fun, they also learned more about
the military and their operations from
the personnel there.
Afterwards, the cadets were all
awarded their sea cruise ribbon, a rare
ribbon which they will wear on their
uniforms, that many ROTC cadets
strive to obtain.


PHOTOS PROVIDED

during their Nov. 6 trip.

The Port Charlotte High School Naval
Junior ROTC is selling discount cards to raise
funds for their unit. Cards cost $10 and last
for one year; you can purchase them from
any cadet in the unit.

IS ALL ,AROUND TOWN
By PAMELA STALK,......
PGH EDITOR
t's the week before
Christmas, and the
elves at the North
Pole are busy tinkering
with Santa's sleigh and
putting the finishing
touches on presents for
all the good boys and
girls this year. Outside
in the freshly fallen
snow, the reindeer
are running sprints
in preparation for
their biggest night of
the year Christmas
Eve. After all, they are
getting ready for a long
night of international
flying and rough-
on-the-hooves roof
landings.
As for the jolly man
himself, he's working
up an appetite for oat-
meal raisin cookies -
his personal favorite -
as he lumbers around
the city of Punta Gorda
performing last-minute
checks for his naughty
and nice lists.
In his wake, children
and the young at heart
are left with big smiles,
memorable photo-
graphs, a handful of
red- and white-striped
candy canes and, if
they are lucky, the
official calling card of
SANTA I P8-9

Shop local for the holidays


re you ready for the holidays
yet? We most definitely are at
the Punta Gorda Chamber of
Commerce, as our week is packed with
fun and festive activities for everyone
to enjoy.
Dec. 19 is the Third Thursday Gallery
Walk in downtown Punta Gorda. There
is always a festive feeling about the
December walk. The theme of this
month's event will be animals, particu-
larly service dogs and the incredible job
they do for our citizenry.
At Swiss Connections, located on
the corner of Sullivan Street and
Virginia Avenue, visitors will get to
meet "Crystal," a well-known dog star
in Punta Gorda. She even has her own
bed at certain watering holes around
town. Her owner, Sue Reeves, will be on
hand to talk to people about the need
for service dogs and how to respond to
them while they are working, since it's
very important that the dog knows it is
on duty.
The Peace River Wildlife Center,
Animal Welfare League of Charlotte
County and Octagon Wildlife Sanctuary
will all be on hand to talk about their
organization. Each will have exhibits
for you to enjoy.
Be sure to make Punta Gorda a
destination during the event, which
will start at 5 p.m. and end at 8 p.m.
Fishermen's Village, 1200 W Retta
Esplanade, will also be an active spot
on Dec. 19. Members of the Punta
Gorda Chamber of Commerce will be
on hand for a ribbon-cutting ceremony
and grand opening of the Military
Heritage Museum's conference center
and library, located on the second floor
by the main entrance. The festivities
start at 5 p.m., and everyone is invited.
This weekend is also the annual
Saturday Before Christmas Eve Lighted
Boat Parade, which starts at dusk on
Dec. 21. The parade will travel around
the canals of Punta Gorda Isles. For
route information, visit www.punta
gordaboatparade.com.
Because next week is Christmas, the
chamber wishes to remind readers our
office will be closing at 2 p.m. on Dec.
24 and will re-open at 9 a.m. on Dec.
27.

Tour holiday lights
In conjunction with the Green
Hibiscus Trolley, Co., the Punta Gorda
Chamber is organizing Christmas
Light Trolley Tours this month. The
tours will depart at 7 p.m. on Dec.
20-21.
The trips depart from the very front
of the parking garage in downtown
Punta Gorda. The tours last approx-
imately 2-and-a-half hours, and will
take folks to view Christmas lights in
Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte.
Reservations are required. The cost
is $25. Hop aboard the Olde Time
Trolley and get yourself, your family
and friends in the holiday mood.

Take a tour of Punta Gorda
The Punta Gorda Chamber's trolley
and boat tours, which are run in con-
junction with King Fisher Fleet and
the Green Hibiscus Trolley, Co., are
back and will continue most Fridays
through May. Dec. 27 is the next tour

Tarpon kickers take on powerhouse team


he two teams couldn't have been
less similar when they took to the
pitch for a Dec. 5 contest.
The Cape Coral High School junior
varsity boys soccer team had the
pedigree, the talent and experience of
having played together on club teams
for years.
Charlotte High School, well, doesn't.
Yet, a funny thing happened when
the unbeaten Seahawks played the
winless Tarpons: it was Cape Coral that
struggled at least at first.
Charlotte got their offside trap going
and forced Cape Coral players ahead
of the play (and thus offside) at least
seven times in the opening moments of
the game.
This drove JV head coach Doug
Dingerman, as well as varsity coach
Aldo Nardiello, crazy. They said as
much at halftime.
But as any team with state champi-
onships under its belt, the Seahawks
solved the riddle. The Tarpons stopped
defending, and, soon, the goals came in

bunches.
James Cannon Smith and Parker
Stone scored before the first half ended.
Cannon Smith then scored again, and
Christopher Iturbe scored twice in
under a minute. Then Cannon Smith
got the hat trick before Stone complet-
ed his with two goals to force the mercy
rule on the Tarpons with seven minutes
to play.
Being the eternal optimist head
coach Scott Thomas is, the fact his
squad was able to keep Cape Coral at
bay for nearly 20 minutes was quite an
accomplishment one they can build
on.
"I was really happy with the way we

started. We got them offside several
times and had them anxious," Thomas
said. "They figured it out, but we
controlled the midfield, we passed it
around, we did the things we've been
talking about. We just don't do it all
game long."
And that was when the scoring tsu-
nami started, and goalkeepers Rahim
Miller, Richard Vanover, Santiado
Fernandez and Sean Gill could do little
about it.
"I was befuddled by the four-goal
funk we got into where it was 2-0 and
suddenly 6-0," Thomas said. "We're not
doing things we know how to do, and
I started a new formation on them,
which takes some of the heat off them."
It is that new formation, which fea-
tures four lines, two sets of midfielders
and three forwards, that Thomas hopes
will result in some long-awaited goals.
"The new formation we didn't get
to practice as stringent as we would
have liked. I'm trying to control the
midfield and possession, and that is

huge," Thomas said. "If we can control
possession and our passes, the differ-
ence will be night and day. We'll have
opportunities."
Those opportunities were there
against Cape Coral in the first half, but
Thomas said the kids are about a foot
away in either direction from things
being completely different, which is a
lot closer than they were at the start of
the season.
"We have moments. We show bits
and pieces of good things, but that
fourth or fifth pass is a little off, and
they take it from us," Thomas said. "We
need to figure out how to string them
together."

ole models, be it a parent, world
leader or celebrity, can make a
huge impact on the lives of oth-
ers. Students at Charlotte High School
shared the people they admire and look
up to, and the impact they have had on
their life.
Just ask junior Janine Matheis.
She said, "I learn a lot from my dad
every single day, and I admire what he
has done as a retired firefighter."
Matheis' father, Bobby, served with
the NewYork Police Department and
was a volunteer firefighter. He played
an active role in helping people during
the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
"My dad was an NYPD and volunteer
firefighter, and he helped out during


Sept. 11," she said. "His actions inspire
me to be a better person every day."
Parents are often role models for their
children, but, often, children don't tell
them. It is something that they secretly
cherish.
Shawna Foster, a junior at CHS, said
her father is a role model to her for
being loving and genuine.
"He will do whatever he can to help
someone," she said. "He's the type of
person that never fails you, he never
lets anyone down if he can make sure
of it."
Role models can inspire and encour-
age students to do better.
"Throughout my life, my dad has
always been a main influence," Foster
said. "With all he has been through, he
has never let me down, and I'll always
remember that."


Students tackle stressful senior year


By ASHLEY STRIKER
CHS SENIOR
dancing to the high-school level
in academics comes with more
than a difficult course load -
there's more responsibilities, figuring
out new interests and finding yourself
in new social situations. It's always a big
change, and it can cause a lot of anxiety.
However, senior year is the most
stressful for high school students be-
cause it is a year with lots of excitement,
pressure and work.
Not only is it the last year before
students are on their own, but many
students have a job. They must make
sure they have good grades and pass all
the important tests to graduate.
With all the anxiety that comes with
senior year, each student deals with it in
their own special way. There are many
different types of stress relievers.
Although the anxiety never really goes

away, there are ways that can calm you
down for that moment so you can get
your head together. It can be very easy
to get all tied up in the stress and have
your emotions go out of whack.
"I relieve my stress by listening to
music, going for a walk or just sitting
outside," explained TierraWoodman, a
senior at CHS.
Unfortunately, people don't always
take the time to calm down in stressful
situations. This can lead to regretful re-
actions. Many students wish they could
take back or maybe even change how
they responded to stressful situations.
Now, the only thing they can do is offer
help to others with a little advice.
One of Kylie Johnston's biggest
recommendations is to not fall behind
in school work.
"Just make sure you keep on top
of your work so you don't get behind
because that's extremely stressful," she
said.

Santa hands out a candy cane to Jackson Petrosky, 4, riding on the shoulders of his mother, Jennifer. ON THE COVER: Riding on the front of a Punta
Gorda fire engine, Santa Claus arrived for the lighting of the Festival of Lights, waving to the hundreds who came out for the seventh annual cele-
bration at Fishermen's Village.


SANTA
FROM PAGE 1
Santa Claus. On these "business cards,"
Santa stays true to the tales of old, signing
off on whether someone has made the
nice or naughty list this year.
On this day, Santa scribbled stars next
to the nice list for the staff, dining guests
and his youngest admirers enjoying a
midday grub stop at Harpoon Harry's at
Fishermen's Village.
Although many a resident has seen the
jolly man in his customary suit with all the
trimmings, Santa was enjoying his lunch
of calamari and unsweetened tea in shorts
and a Christmas-themed T-shirt.
He was in Florida, after all.
Despite his casual appearance, his
jovial attitude, long beard and white hair
are a dead giveaway to his true identity.
Everyone he passed or sat next to ac-
knowledged the jolly man as Santa, and
a line soon formed beside his waterfront
booth as people stopped by to say, "Hello."
One of his visitors was John Gram, who
stepped right up to Santa and took a seat
on the jolly man's lap.
"And what would you like for
Christmas?" Santa asked the young man.
"Everything," Gram exclaimed.
With a hearty laugh, as only Santa could
possibly muster, he nodded and affirmed
Gram's request. "You know what I'll do for
you right now? I'll give you a candy cane."
Santa's words seemed like music to
Gram's ears as he carried off his piece of
candy to show his friends and family.
Sitting back and watching the fun
unfold was Santa's bride of 106 years
("Fifty-three for me, and 53 for her," Santa
would go on to explain).
She laughed and shook her head.
"Happens all the time," she said, a
smile growing bigger as she listened to

her husband speak to his visitors. "I don't
know anything else. It's my life, and I
wouldn't trade it for anything else."
Ditto, said Santa, who has been enjoying
his time away from the North Pole in
sunny Punta Gorda. And, boy, is he busy.
A print-out agenda of his December
appointments contains volunteer
engagements at places like the Shell
Factory, Fishermen's Village, schools, the
Bayfront Center YMCA, an assortment of
clubs within the Punta Gorda Isles Civic
Association, the Punta Gorda Boat Parade
and many private home visits.
Among his favorites this month was a
surprise visit to the Do the Right Thing
program on Dec. 5, where he burst
through the City Council doors, bells ring-
ing and candy canes a-flying, to congrat-
ulate the December nominees Brooke
Vitti, overall winner Christopher Maler Jr.,
Ztevan Alvarado, Hannah Roberson and
Jeselle Campbell.
And then there are his upcoming ride-
alongs with representatives of the Punta
Gorda Police Department.
"That's a hoot," Santa said. "We look
for minor violations, and we pull them
over. The officer makes sure these aren't
serial killers, and all of a sudden there's
Santa by their side window saying, 'I'm
putting you on my naughty list for 24
hours with a finger shake and all. Now,
if you promise to be good and wear your
seatbelt, here's your license, registration,
insurance card and two candy canes from
the Punta Gorda Police Department.
Merry Christmas!' And then we send them


on their way."
The jolly man also hitches a ride or two
with the Punta Gorda Fire Department.
On Nov. 16, he got a preview of this expe-
rience as he sat atop the front bumper of
one of the department's engines on the
way into Fishermen's Village for the annual
lighting of the Festival of Lights.
"It was so packed it took me a good half-
hour to walk from the front to the chair,"
Santa said. It was such a fun and busy
evening that hours passed before he could
see the end of the line.
Of course, that didn't bother him a bit.
That just meant he clocked extra time with
his favorite people children.
"I love seeing the look in the eyes of
the little kids, the ones who are between
about 3 and 5 that come running at you
from a distance with the look of true love
in their eyes," he said. "I get more out of it
than anyone else. I enjoy making people
happy."
That's probably why his schedule is
booked like a full-time job just without
the paycheck.
In fact, he's never accepted payment,
and he directs people to the nearest
Salvation Army bell ringer when they try
to sneak a tip.
Being Santa, he said, isn't a job it's a
lifestyle. And it's been part of his life since
retirement.
In a previous life, the once clean-shaved
man worked for Ford Motor Company and
volunteered as a paramedic and firefight-
er. Upon retirement, Santa said he also
retired his razor.
"On the 23rd of December in '93,1I got
up in the mroning and showered, shaved
and caught an 8 o'clock flight home," he
said. "The next morning I didn't shave. On
Christmas morning, I went up to shower
and shave and my wife said, 'You know,
you have always wanted to grow a beard.'
So I haven't been clean-shaven since I was
gainfully employed."
He isn't kidding. The beard is long and


wispy, and it is the perfect catcher of
cookie crumbs.
Beard aside, Santa can talk for ages
about his elves, reindeer, sleigh and the
many interesting requests he's had over
the years, including the kids vying for
high-tech gadgets, Barbie dolls and, of
course, puppies, kittens and horses.
"I always say the same thing to that
- no," he exclaimed. "Why? Because if I
bring a puppy on my sleigh, since I'll be
out all night, I will also have to bring food.
And you know what puppies do when they
eat? They poop. Santa doesn't want puppy
poop in his sleigh. And you wouldn't like
a present with puppy poop on it, would
you?"
And even though he's been in the suit
for many years, Santa is still touched by
the more meaningful requests.
"The ones you tend to remember are,
'I want you to make my aunt's cancer go
away' or, 'My mommmy just died, can you
bring her back?'" Santa said. "Those are
tough."
Truly, he has seen it all. One of his most
memorable days in the area happened
when, in a three-hour span, he paid a visit
to a 108-year-old woman at South Port

Square that was followed by a trip to then
St. Joseph's Hospital to welcome a four-
hour old baby into the world.
Regardless of where he goes or his
audience, Santa is guaranteed to have two
things with him: lots of love and a candy
cane. In fact, the man in red goes through
about 10,000 candy canes in a typical
holiday season.
Although he's not much for snacking on
candy he truly is all about the cookies
- Santa doesn't leave the North Pole with-
out them. They are always in a red sack at
his side, be it at one of his many appear-
ances or while riding through Punta Gorda
in one of his favorite non-sleigh rides: a
red SUV or white convertible.
Both vehicles are kept safe and sound
at the home of longtime friends John and
Darlene Steciw, who live in Punta Gorda
Isles. The Clauses stay with the Steciws
every year, and the couple also handles
the jolly man's local appearance schedule.
For more information, send an email to
wicets@comcast.net.
You should also keep your eyes peeled
for the jolly man when you are out and
about in Punta Gorda. There will be no
denying it's him.

CAP volunteers snap valuable aerial photos


after the horrific events of Sept.
11, 2001, all general aviation
aircraft was grounded near the
World Trade Center in New York City.
One of the very first planes permitted
access to fly over the site was from the
Civil Air Patrol its mission was to
take photographs of the area and pass
them along to federal authorities to
assist in their investigation.
A civilian auxiliary of the U.S. Air
Force, the Civil Air Patrol was created
at the end of World War II to assist in
emergency services, aerospace educa-
tion and cadet programs. Because of
its constant evolving nature, the CAP
keeps abreast of the latest technology
in the event of a natural disaster,
locating downed aircraft and numerous
other incidents that they may be called
upon to perform.
The past 5 years has seen an upswing
in the field of aerial photography
within the organization, and Charlotte
County Composite Squadron FL-051
has been in the vanguard flying
numerous missions for local, state and
federal authorities.
"FL-051 was a pioneer in the
development of geo-tagged aerial
photography," said Neil Heisner, who
was the squadron's first qualified aerial
photographer. "Digital cameras have
evolved and the Global Positioning
System, or GPS, mapping has become a
valuable tool for the squadron to assist
government agencies in need."
Geo-tagging is a process that embeds
the data of the latitude and longitude
coordinates, the altitude of the aircraft,
its bearing and distance so the user can
establish the exact location of where
the picture was taken accurate to

within 50 feet. Without this valuable
information, determining where it was
taken may prove to be impossible.
To date, FL-051 has six aerial pho-
tographers. A typical mission consists
of the pilot, an observer and a scan-
ner, who is constantly looking at the
horizon, according to Heisner, and
everyone is a volunteer.
"We use the Nikon 7000 for our mis-
sions," Heisner said. "Charlotte County
funded the purchase of the cameras.
We really appreciate their help."
Heisner said that the squadron has
recently photographed the entire west-
ern half of Charlotte County, everything
west of Interstate 75. In the aftermath
of Hurricane Sandy, which wreaked
havoc on the New York and New Jersey
shoreline, their single-engine, four-seat
Cessna 182 was tasked with taking
photos of the Stump Pass area. Heisner
said that they took state officials on an
aerial tour to show them the damage
that the massive storm had left behind.
"The erosion was unbelievable,"
Heisner said. 'Although Sandy didn't
hit us direct, there were effects from
it. Sand covered all the rocks at a good
fishing spot at Boca Grande."
In April 2010, when the Deepwater
Horizon oil rig exploded near the
Mississippi River Delta, resulting in 210

million gallons of oil spilling into the
Gulf of Mexico, FL-051 was immediate-
ly dispatched to photograph the scene.
"We flew five missions and took
photos of the heavily damaged areas,"
Heisner said. "We kept an eye out for
any oil slicks and ensured that the
retaining equipment was properly
placed."
Heisner said that it normally takes
about three months to train a new
photographer. Caroline Clabaugh, who
has been a squadron aerial photogra-
pher for the past 18 months, said that
she loves photography and the chal-
lenge from taking photographs from an
aircraft.
"I am the observer," she said. "I have
been doing it now for 18 months. My
friends took me out of my comfort
zone and got me involved."
Gail Arnold recently joined the
squadron and is lending her aviation
experience to the group.


"I am not a pilot, but I have been
around aviation all my life," she said.
"We owned a private airport in Illinois."
FL-051 is fortunate that it has mem-
bers that possess expertise in aerial
photography. Lt. Col. Edmund Smith is
the photography expert with the CAP's
National Technology Staff located at
Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama.
Smith and Richard Morrell are also
qualified to operate the CAP's Airborne
Real-Time Cueing Hyperspectral
Enhanced Reconnaissance, or
ARCHER, a system that produces
extremely detailed photographs, which
is helpful in locating downed aircraft.
'Aerial photography is relatively
new to the CAP organization," said
Bob Hoschner, one of the squadron's
photographers. "It's a great asset for the
county, and this squadron has certainly
been in the forefront with, not only
photographers, but certified instructors
as well."

DEAR DR. ROACH: Is
there a limit as to how
much vitamin D should be
taken a day? I am 83 years
old, have taken Femara for
10 years, have had several
rounds of prednisone (one
for longer than a year), and
I am getting about 1,950
IU of vitamin D daily. Does
that sound right? S.R.
ANSWER: Vitamin D
deficiency is common
throughout all of North
America, and the further
north you are, the more
likely you are to be defi-
cient. Older people are at
higher risk, as are those
with darker skin or those
who aren't outside very
much.
Femara, a medication
used for breast cancer, can
cause accelerated bone
loss, so getting the right
amount of vitamin D,
which helps keep bones
strong, is particularly
important. Prednisone,
used for innumerable con-
ditions, also causes bone
loss, so you are at especially
high risk.
One study gave every-
body on Femara 50,000
units of vitamin D a week
- about 7,000 units a day,
or more than three times
what you are taking and
found that such an amount
of vitamin D was safe and
reduced joint pain. So that
may be a reasonable dose
for someone on Femara.
Personally, I would
recommend getting your
blood level of vitamin D
checked, and base your
dose on the result.
Finally, most women
on Femara are on for
only five years. You might
double-check with your
oncologist about whether
you should still be on it.
DEAR DR. ROACH: As
I am concerned with my
health, I recently decided to
do some research on what
I take as a daily vitamin
and what the commercial
companies decide to add
into their pills.
One of them, selenium,
was listed as being one
of those dietary elements
about which doctors really
aren't sure what it does for
the body, but generally was
thought to be beneficial for
the joints and was recom-
mended for short-term
usage (I was unable to find
their definition of "short-
term"). The side effects
stunned me, however, and
it bothers me that it could
contribute to higher risks
of contracting diabetes. As I
have diabetes in my family
tree, I wonder if I should
avoid vitamins containing
selenium. M.T.
ANSWER: Selenium is
a mineral, a metal needed


Dr. Roach

in trace amounts in the
body. Selenium deficiency
is certainly associated
with problems, including
with the immune system
and the heart. However,
selenium deficiency is
very rare in the United
States and Canada, and
supplementing people
with already adequate
amounts of selenium does
seem to increase the risk
of diabetes. I don't recom-
mend selenium supple-
mentation for healthy
people eating a balanced
diet, especially for those at
higher-than-average risk
for diabetes.
Incidentally, a single
Brazil nut has more than a
day's worth of selenium!
DEAR DR. ROACH: Hi. I
have fallen on both knees
and periodically experience
pain. Would you recom-
mend ozone injections?
If so, are there any risks
associated with it? Any
insight you provide would
be appreciated. G.G.
ANSWER: There have
been some studies looking
at whether ozone injections
reduce pain, both in the
lower back and in the knee.
Initial results look prom-
ising, and risks seem to be
low. However, I am pretty
conservative about new
treatments, and I wouldn't
rush to get these injections
before further studies have
been done.

ask about cervical cancer

shell, it takes major surgery
to get the meat out. There
has got to be an easier way
to do it. Any suggestions?
I saw a Samoan in Hawaii
use a pointed stick in the
ground, but I don't think
I can keep one around
for just that! Ann S. in
Houston
I enjoyed meeting you
and your daughter; please
give her a hug for me!
Trying to crack a coconut
can drive you "nuts"!
The coconut needs to be
baked before the meat is
removed.
Put the coconut in the
oven (on 350 F) for 15-
20 minutes. Remove
carefully and wrap in a
heavy towel. Use a ham-
mer to whack the heck out
of it. Just keep hammering
away, and it should break
into pieces, which makes it
easier to remove the meat.

The foiled touch
Dear Heloise: When I
cook with aluminum foil,
I sometimes notice that
there are black specks left
on the food after cooking.
What causes this, and is
it something I need to
worry about? Rachel T.,
via email
Don't worry. These
specks can be caused
when aluminum foil
touches food that
contains vinegar or salt
or that is highly acidic

Hints from Heloise

or spicy. It's a reaction
between the foil and the
food. It's not harmful,
and you can safely eat
the black specks. But if
you would rather not,
then just remove them.

Kitchen hints
Dear Heloise: While
visiting a friend, I asked
where she had found the
big, wide rubber bands
that are so handy for large
extension cords, boxes in
the pantry, etc. She said
that when her rubber
gloves develop holes, she
cuts across the cuffs to
form the wide bands. Not
only handy, but a great
way to recycle.
Another hint is that
after dropping a piece of
eggshell into a light-col-
ored batter and not
finding it, I now keep
a stack of disposable,
clear plastic cups in the
kitchen. When a recipe
calls for eggs, I break the
eggs into the plastic cup,
and if there is a problem,
I can solve it and then
toss the cup. ZeldaW

Husband on g

wants his wil

DEAR ABBY: A couple
of years ago, my husband
informed me that he
likes to dress in women's
clothing. Since then he
has read books, is seeing a
counselor, and the reality is,
he is transgender. He now
wears his hair long and has
long fingernails.
I have tried to be under-
standing and have gone
places with him when he
is dressed as a woman. He
has met other transgender
people who have either
made the full transition or
are content without it. I al-
low my husband time with
these new friends without
me. I did feel weird that he
was clothes shopping and
going to movies with his
new friends.
I have reconciled with
these activities and I'm OK
with them so far. But I have
told him that if he decides
to change his gender to
female, I will not be able to
be married to him. He's on
hormones at the moment
and has told me he plans to
start testosterone blockers.
I love him, Abby, but not
the woman side of him.
Am I unreasonable to put a
boundary on my marriage?
He thinks if he slowly eases
me into the idea that it will
be OK. He says I am his
"world" and I should love
him no matter what gender
he is. Am I being selfish?
-SOMEWHERE IN THE
NORTHWEST
DEAR SOMEWHERE:
You appear to be a loving
and accepting wife. You
may be your husband's
world, but his world is
changing and along
with it, so is yours. It is not
selfish to take care of your-
self. You did not enter your
marriage to be partnered
with another woman, and
you should not be made
to feel guilty remaining
with one if it's not what you
want. Some spouses stay
together; others just can't.
If you haven't heard
of the Straight Spouse
Network, it is a confidential
support network of current
or former heterosexual
spouses or partners of

standing. To learn more

DEAR ABBY: I have
always had an extremely
close relationship with
my little sister. Last year, I
graduated from high school
and left for university. It
was hard for both of us. My
college is an hour away,
so even though I live on
campus, I try to come
home whenever I can to
visit on weekends.
Lately it seems like my
little sister has emotionally
distanced herself from me.
She doesn't confide in me
anymore, shows little in-
terest in my life, and it has
gotten to the point where
she barely acknowledges
me in public. She tells me
I'm overreacting and to
stop being stupid.
My mom says she does
this with everyone and that
this is typical for a 14-year-
old teenager, but it breaks
my heart to be so excluded
from her life. Is this just
a phase I have to learn to
deal with and accept? What
should I do? -SAD BIG
SISTER IN SWITZERLAND
DEAR BIG SISTER: Your
sister is growing up, and
part of that process means
becoming an individual.
Right now she is trying to
figure out who she is, apart
from the family she loves
-including you. Because
you were so close, she may
have felt abandoned when
you left for college. Let your
sister evolve. She'll be back


"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath
anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath
sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliver-
ance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at libery them that are bruised. Luke 4:18
The fact that He is the poor man's friend does not
mean that He is the rich man's enemy. It is the love
of money that is the "root of all evil." "God is no
respector of persons."

Venice Gondolier readers: Look for the puzzle solution in the Our Town section


I HOROSCOPE I
ARIES (March 21-April19).While waiting fora
parent to assemble a toy, a child learns patience. If
young children can learn not to expect immediate
results, so can that childish person in your life.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Of course people should
take care of themselves. But you're willing to go the
extra mile to take care of others and not just
when they are sick or weary, but any old time at all.
It's part of how you show your love.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll get plenty accom-


others fear. You're fine with being alone, and you're
not afraid of silence, either. In fact, you prefer it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). When you look for
opportunities, you're not seeking a free handout
or benefit. Instead, you're looking for a chance to
match your skills with another person's needs.
L[EO (July 23-Aug. 22).You'll be dealing with people
of all ages. It can be difficult to keep everyone's
developmental stage in mind, but try to remember
not to treatolder people like children.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).Whilea relationship is


for a reason. Keeping score won't change that and to surprise the one you love. You'll be thrilled at the be loyal in return. Know that everyone is trying to


will only make you feel worse.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Avoid the passive-aggres-
sive choice to remain silent as a means of making
someone pay attention to you. It will be far more
effective to say what you need to say.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Sometimes taking your
grievances directly to the source is not the best idea.
Give it some time. You'll feel differently tomorrow,
and Friday will change yourstance yet again.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your creativity is


happy, excited response your efforts earn.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Friends who don't
take an interest when you speak of your hopes and
dreams aren't really friends at all. Rather, they are
people who fit into your current lifestyle.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Go off script. Ifyou
make a scripted inquiry, you'll get an insincere
response. Say what you really want to express, and
ask what you really wantto know.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).There's no need to test


do what's best. Stay focused on the things that will
improve your corner of the scene.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 18). A relationship has
taught you well, though the"watch and learn"
mode ends in January. You'll love the feeling of
being in charge in 2014. February brings a fun twist
to your domestic arrangement. March sends you
on a work-related quest. In May, you'll prove you're
ready for more power and responsibility. Cancer and
Scorpio people adoreyou.Your lucky numbers are:


polished because you thrive in the very atmosphere obviously uneven, the fact remains that you're there flowing more strongly than usual. Consider using it a person's loyalty;just assume he or she is loyal and 5,20,4,33 and 28.


JANRIC CLASSIC SUDOKU
Fill in the blank cells using numbers 1 to 9. Each number can appear only once in each row,
column and 3x3 block. Use logic and process elimination to solve the puzzle. The difficulty
level ranges from Bronze (easiest) to Silver to Gold (hardest).

Opening lead: Four of
East won the opening heart lead
and continued with the queen. Next
came a diamond, which declarer won
in dummy while discarding his
remaining heart. South, who knew
where all the spades were from the
auction, now cleverly ran the six of
spades. Declarer next led the jack of
spades from dummy, letting it run
when East played low. One more
spade finesse followed by the ace
took care of the trumps. South now
led a club. West hopped up with his
ace and played a diamond. South
ruffed and cashed dummy's two high


clubs. When that suit split 3-3, he had
his contract. He ruffed a diamond
back to his hand and played the long
club for 10 tricks.
Did you spot any errors? There
were plenty.
East should have played a third
round of hearts, forcing dummy to
ruff and assuring himself of a trump
trick. Then, West should have played
low on the first club, allowing
dummy's king to win. Declarer
would have to ruff a diamond back to
his hand to lead a second club. West
plays his ace at this point and then
another diamond, forcing South to
ruff with his last trump. Now when
South cashes the good club in
dummy, he has no way back to his
hand to enjoy the long club.
South could always have made his
contract after the diamond play at
trick three. He should have overtaken
dummy's six of spades with the eight
and led a club to dummy's king.
Assuming West ducks, South draws
trumps as before and leads a second
club. Should West hop up with the
ace and play a diamond. South can
ruff but still has a trump remaining.
Now, when he cashes the good club
in dummy, he can ruff back to his
hand and play the long club. Making
four!

DOORYARD GARDENERS
Peach trees will grow &
produce quality fruit in Florida
if your selection is purchased
from a nursery that sells
varieties that are developed
by the Univ. of Fl. Institute of
Food and Agriculture Sciences
(IFAS) Avoid purchasing peach
varieties that originate from
out of state simply because,
they require high chill hours
& consequently minimize
bearing potential. For more
info: 863-494-6933 or visit
Russell's Peach Tree Nursery
At 7789 SW Highway 72,
Arcadia, FL. Addional contact
