PUBLISHER'S INBOX


Brunswick


stew
My inbox is like a big bowl
of Brunswick stew. A thick,
hearty fare, with just enough
tomato sauce to disperse the flavors
across all the taste
b buds.
Every day the
taste of the email
S inbox is slightly dif-
^^ferent sometimes
L / a little spicy.
When I wrote
my column about
Daid to navigate through
David Obamacare, the
DUNN-RANKIN spices delivered
PRESIDENT AND PUBLISHER to my e-mail inbox
made a particularly
zesty concoction.
I did not mean to be left or right in
writing about businesses navigating
health care only part of the frustrat-
ed middle. Some readers understood.
"Your article was factual and hope-
fully will wake up a few readers as to
the huge problem facing our country."
DT
Some thought I was criticizing the
president and his plan:
"The way the system is going to work
is if you have more people getting in
the system, individuals, small business,
big business the cost will go down. Let's
hope more and more people will sign
up so the cost will go down. I am all for
this Obamacare."
And this one. "I think that in the end
we just have to be fair and it would be
nice if we could work at solving our
problems together Maybe the ACA is
not the answer, but how are we to know
until we try." JT
Others thought I was praising the
president and his plan:
"You didn't blame/criticize your
lying, socialist bMdy. Obama, and his
worthless plan that is doing unbeliev-
able damage to our existing health care
system and to our overall economy and
you complicate that belief by closing
with the statement that the GOP
doesn't have a plan either This is a lie!
I would probably have a stroke if you
ever wrote the truth." MW
Some folks were calm. "I really
thought that today's piece was
an editorial. Maybe it was on the
wrong page? You are usually more
even-handed"
Some folks were less calm.
"President Obama is a blatant liar
Next time you write an article let's get
the facts right or lIam going to think
that you and your buddy have your
head up your... or maybe that is by
design?"
Others looked at the issue of rising
health care insurance costs a different
way. "This unholy alliance between Big
Insurance and Big Healthcare is skill-
fully downplayed by powerful lobbyists
and charming CEOs to the detriment
of the public who then blames the gov-
ernment. The real solution to all this
is a single payer system which takes
the profit out of the equation. We have
such a system Medicare!" TT
The beauty of Brunswick stew and
receiving email from readers is that
all kinds of ingredients can be mixed
together and still have a tasty, delight-
ful product.
Thanks for spicing up my day and
for sharing your thoughts.

and publisher of the Sun Coast Media
Group. You can email him at daviddr@

High school grades in North Port, DeSoto drop a letter


By ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER
The Florida Department of
Education released preliminary high
school grades for 2013 Wednesday,
and the rankings show Charlotte
County high schools all retaining an
A rating, while two North Port schools
fell from As to B's.
All four Charlotte County high
schools Charlotte, Lemon Bay, Port
Charlotte and Edison Collegiate (the
county's only current charter school)
- kept their A rankings.

Right: Florida Department of Transportation workers assess damage to the
Ponce De Leon overpass in North Port Wednesday after a dump truck with its
bed raised struck it in the early morning hours.

Interstate to be shut down again tonight


By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER
NORTH PORT Thousands of
motorists were delayed by hours
Wednesday following an early morn-
ing, single-vehicle accident in which a
dump truck struck the Ponce De Leon
Boulevard overpass in the south-
bound lanes of Interstate 75, causing
significant damage to a beam.
Traffic was rerouted down River
Road through North Port to Sumter
Boulevard, but that detour again was
rerouted to Toledo Blade Boulevard
after a vehicle caught fire at Sumter
and Price boulevards late Wednesday
afternoon.
1-75 was reopened around 4 p.m.,
but according to Dave Parks, a
Florida Department of Transportation
spokesman for the interstate-wid-
ening project currently underway,


the 9-mile section of
southbound 1-75 that was
closed Wednesday will be
shut down again tonight
Hfor 12 hours starting at
7 p.m., to continue to
work on the damaged
RAMSINGH beam.
The overpass at mile
marker 184 is safe to drive under, but
not safe to drive on, Parks said. The
beam was being wrapped in what
Parks described as a "durable fabric
diaper" that prevents concrete from
falling into the roadway. Tonight's
work will involve removing the beam,
Parks said, adding that a new support
structure could be in place by this
weekend.
"The overpass is supported by seven
other beams that span the interstate,"
Parks said. "There's no danger of the
overpass itself collapsing."


she is happy with the overall results,
there is work to be done.
"We are pleased that all our high
schools are A or B schools," she
said, "but there is certainly room for
improvement. We will redouble our
efforts to monitor every student's
pathway to graduation, and help
those who struggle academically to
reach their full potential."

for overpass repairs

The Ponce De Leon bridge will
be closed to motorists, except for
emergency vehicles, for about a week,
FDOT officials said.
With traffic backed up on 1-75
southbound to Jacaranda Boulevard,
it took some motorists almost an hour
to get to River Road (exit 191), and
another 45 minutes on U.S. 41 to the
Sumter detour (exit 182). The north-
bound lanes remained open.
The incident started around
2:30 a.m. Wednesday, when a dump
truck driven by North Miami man
Bonnie Deosarrn Ramsingh, 56,
slammed into the bridge. According to
the Florida Highway Patrol, Ramsingh
left the dump-bed portion of the truck
in an upright position, which caused
it to strike the overpass.
FHP Lt. Greg Bueno said Ramsingh

WRECK 110

STAFF WRITER
When it comes to using bahia sod
at Laishley Park, the grass is definitely
not greener.
At least not according to Punta
Gorda city officials, who rejected a
staff proposal Wednesday to continue
using bahia sod at the park once
drainage fixes are put in place to
alleviate flooding.
At the City Council's regular meet-
ing Wednesday, city engineer Mark
Gering presented the council with


a pared-down version of a proposal
introduced in June.
The original proposal called for
Bermuda sod, which holds up better
in high traffic areas versus bahia sod,
which is less sturdy and easily turns
brown. The proposal also called for
installation of a "rock drain-bed" that
functions similar to a stormwater
filtration field, through which rain
water flows into pipes that then run
into stormwater collection ponds.
After going out to bid on the project,
the lowest proposal came back about
$80,000 over budget, Gering said.


After speaking with contractors,
officials learned the time frame being
considered for construction was too
narrow and the sod being proposed
was more expensive and would
require more maintenance.
"We found that the Bermuda grass,
according to the people that sell all
kinds of turf, is not suitable for most
home lawns because it needs restrict-
ed use of pesticides to control nem-
atodes and insects," Gering said. "It
also requires the most maintenance

Congress to help expand
the capacity of food

board, local agencies
chosen to receive funds
must:
Be private, voluntary
nonprofits or units of
government.
Have an accounting
system.

House fire ruled as arson


By GARY ROBERTS
STAFF WRITER

PORT CHARLOTTE
-A house fire early
Wednesday morning
has been ruled an arson
by state investigators.
The home, located on
the 500 block of Orange
Drive, was the scene
of two drug arrests last
Friday.
In responding to a call
at 2:40 a.m., Charlotte
County Fire/EMS found
heavy smoke and flames
coming from the home,
Fire/EMS spokeswoman
Dee Hawkins-Garland
said. Emergency units
had the fire under
control in less than 18
minutes, according to
reports.
The house was vacant
at the time and no
injuries were reported.


The home
appeared
to be a
total loss,
Hawkins-
Garland
said.
Firefight-
ers found HOHOLIK
four vehi-
cles in front of the house:
a motorcycle that was
destroyed; two cars also
damaged; and a pickup,
which was not damaged.
Charlotte County
Sheriff's detectives and
the State Fire Marshal's
Office also were called to
the scene.
By noon Wednesday, a
fire marshal investigator
determined arson was
the cause of the fire.
During the investigation,
dogs detected large
amounts of an accelerant
in the living room and


bedroom
areas,
p 0 according
to Hawkins-
Garland.
Friday,
CCSO
narcotics
KUKISH detectives
and mem-
bers of the Street Crimes
Unit served a search
warrant at the house.
When nobody answered
the door, they entered
the house and found two
people inside.
Terry James Hoholik,
36, of the Orange Drive
home, was found locked
inside a bathroom.
Megan Lynn Kukish,
25, of the 2200 block
of Starlite Lane in Port
Charlotte, was located in
a bedroom.
During a subsequent
search, detectives


reportedly located
multiple items with both
methamphetamine and
MDMA residue, in vari-
ous locations within the
house. They also found a
small end of a rolled joint
of marijuana in a candle
holder.
Both Hoholik and
Kukish were arrested
Friday and charged
with possession of
methamphetamine,
possession of less than
20 grams of marijuana
and possession of drug
paraphernalia. Hoholik
additionally was charged
with possession of
MDMA. Kukish also had
her bond revoked from
a November arrest on
additional drug charges.
Both Hoholik and
Kukish still were in
custody at the Charlotte
County Jail at the time

Whittaker rated highly effective


By BILL JONES
SUN CORRESPONDENT

To Charlotte County
School Board mem-
ber Barbara Rendell,
Superintendent Doug
Whittaker
has a "real,
real knack of
laying things
out, a wealth
of knowl-
edge, and a
wonderful
WHITTAKER way of
giving that
knowledge to the public.
"You're only human,
and humans make


mistakes," she told
Whittaker as the School
Board revealed its yearly
evaluation of the super-
intendent at a workshop
session Tuesday. "But
overall, I look at all the
good you've done."
That's why, she said, she
rated Whittaker a cumula-
tive 8.4 (out of 10) in nine
proficiency areas involv-
ing student achievement,
instructional leadership,
operational leadership,
and professional and eth-
ical behavior. It was close
to his overall score of 8.2
from the five members of
the board.


Board chairman lan
Vincent said a score
between 7 and 9 in any
of the categories, and
cumulatively, represents
a rating of "highly
effective."
Vincent's overall mark
for Whittaker was 7.8. For
board vice chairman Lee
Swift, it was 8.2. Alleen
Miller scored him 8.6,
and Robert Segur's mark
was 8.1.
The cumulative marks
ranged from 7.4 for
student achievement to
9.5 for professional and
ethical behavior.
Whittaker said the


ratings were "pretty close
to my own self-evalu-
ation." He also said he
gave himself lower scores
in student achievement,
since "clearly, the problem
here is our drop in relative
position in the state."
However, he had good
news for the board, he
said, since "we're starting
to get mid-year data,
and there is significant
improvement across the
board."
In an interview after
the meeting, Whittaker
said the primary problem
in lower student achieve-
ment was $41 million


in budget cuts in pro-
fessional development
for teachers, which
greatly affected teachers
teaching the state's new
mathematics curriculum.
The math scores
"dropped off significant-
ly," he said, "more than in
other districts." Obviously,
he said, "kids don't get
dumb all of a sudden."
The culprit, he said, was
the $41 million eliminated
from the professional
development budget.
That "cut the budget
significantly," he said,
and made it difficult to
"retrain teachers to the


new math standards and
prepare students for the
new tests."
Another concern,
Whittaker said, is student
writing skills, which he
feels are eroding. While
reading scores are up
somewhat, he said,
writing is also highly
important to students
after they graduate and
enter the job market.
Overall, he said, he was
pleased that the board's
evaluation marks "were
very, very close" to his
own, which "validates
that I'm really being
honest with myself"


Nineteen years of Old Florida


By BARBARA BEAN-MELLINGER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Sitting around the unlit
fire circle in the heat of
the day taking in the
leisurely diners, the stage
and a glimpse of the water
beyond it was easy to
see why life is good at
Nav-A-Gator.
Owners Nancy and
Captain Dennis Kirk are
celebrating their 19th year
in business this week
Tuesday was the official
anniversary. The Kirks
opened Nav-A-Gator in
Lake Suzy on Dec. 17,
1994. They'll celebrate
again Saturday with music
by Jim Morris appropri-
ate since Nav-A-Gator was
recently named the best
place in the U.S. to listen


to trop rock music, beating
out such venerable names
as Margaritaville for the
fifth time.
Instead of a cover
charge, they ask patrons
to bring nonperishable
food items which will
be donated to local food
pantries.
"This is Old Florida
at its best," said Dennis.
"We offer good food at
good prices, and we don't
change our prices or hours
in season."
Consistency is import-
ant to customers, Dennis
said. Food at the Nav-A-
Gator is the same every
time they come. Though
it's known for its Super
Grouper and other fish
sandwiches, the restaurant
also has Cubans, steaks,
burgers and handmade
crabcakes.

rant, though, Nav-A-Gator

boat tours, Captain Dennis
reveals some of the history
of the Peace River and
surrounding area. The spot
on which the Nav-A-Gator
sits was once FortWinder,
a trading post.
Dennis often finds
fossils which are on
display in their museum -
including many different
shells and part of a wooly
mammoth's tooth. Not
one of those look-but-
don't-touch museums, the
Nav-A-Gator is hands-on,
inviting everyone to pick
up and examine the fossils.
More recent finds, also
on display, include nu-
merous outboard motors
dating to 1920, fishing
rods and tools. The Kirks
operate the business with
dedication to conservation
and preserving the natural
environment.
"We don't feed the
alligators to get them to

do," said Dennis. "What

Bridge




repaired: Sail




on, sailors


By IAN ROSS
STAFF WRITER

ENGLEWOOD Due
to the malfunction of the
Tom Adams bridge, sailors
like Gerri Barraco have
been stuck in Lemon Bay
since Saturday.
But while the Tom
Adams was briefly the
bridge over troubled
waters, the story is now
one of water under the
troubled bridge. With
the bridge repaired late
Tuesday night, Barraco,
manning the catamaran
Sirenia, was able to
continue south along the
Intracoastal Waterway
Wednesday morning.
"The bridge tender is
the real hero," Barraco,
who had been docked at
the Royal Palm Marina,
said Wednesday. Although
the stranded sailors
constantly were asking
for updates, "(the tender)
never lost his temper and
was really a nice guy. He
was totally professional
and nice to the last."
The bridge, which
began experiencing prob-
lems Saturday afternoon,
was declared functional
around 11:30 p.m.
Tuesday, according to
Charlotte County Utilities
interim road superinten-
dent Tim Free.
The county Public
Works department, which
is responsible for the
bridge's operation, hopes
a refurbishment sched-
uled for early 2014 will
make the bridge more
up to date and prevent
further problems.
Chuck Koons, the coun-
ty project engineer, said
because the bridge was
built in 1965, "the equip-
ment is 1960s vintage
- and obviously there's
been improvements in
electronics since then."
Charlotte County proj-
ect engineer Chuck Koons
said the refurbishment
has two phases the
first of which took place
in 2006, and the next is
planned for the beginning
of 2014.
"The goal of first phase
of renovation was to take
care of structural issues,"
Koons said. This involved
installing new concrete
piles, replacing and
painting structural steel,


and putting a new deck
on the bridge.
In the second phase,
Public Works will install
"new electrical and
mechanical equipment
- all of the electrical and
mechanical equipment
would be replaced."
In addition to replacing
the equipment, Koons
said the county also will
build "a new tender house
on (the) opposite side of
the street as the original."
The new tender house
would be "a floor higher
to have better views
of the traffic and safer
operation."
Both capital improve-
ments to the bridge -
like the refurbishment
project; and maintenance
- like the emergency
repairs that took place
Tuesday, are paid for by
Public Works.
Marty Simone, the
department's fiscal man-
ager, said revenues for
bridge improvement and
maintenance are collect-
ed through the local gas
tax, which is projected to
raise about $12 million in
revenues this year.
Authorities couldn't
give a total estimate
for the bridge repairs
because they have not yet
received an invoice from
a mechanic contracted
for the repairs. However
the cost of the parts was
in the mere hundreds of
dollars, Free said.
Overall, Free said the
Tom Adams bridge is
pretty reliable.
"From my experience,
it's only maybe every five
years something like this
might happen," Free said.
"There's a lot of moving
parts and things happen,
but it's been a good
bridge."
Although many of the
sailors docked at the
Royal Palm Marina since
Saturday have destina-
tions beyond Englewood,
some, like Barraco, took
time to enjoy the local
scenery. Barraco said she
brought bicycles aboard
her boat, and was able to
ride down to Dearborn
Street and spend some
time atVino Loco. She
also enjoyed Zeke's
Bayside Bar & Grill at the
marina.

ARTIST'S RENDERING PROVIDED
Bridge renovations scheduled to begin in the spring of 2014
will move the tender house of the Tom Adams bridge to the
opposite side of the bridge, and will raise it higher to give the
bridge tender a better view of traffic. In addition, electrical
and mechanical bridge parts will be replaced. An architect's
rendering depicts the new layout for the bridge.

Workshop focuses on



environment, jobs


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
STAFF WRITER

SARASOTA COUNTY
-A group of more than
100 professional planners,
builders, developers,
government representa-
lives and small business
owners from around the
region were urged to focus
on green business practices
and building resilience in
local food supplies at the
county's eighth annual
Sustainable Communities
Workshop Wednesday in
Sarasota.
The all-day event drew
leaders from industry,
government and collegiate
programs, local "clean-
tech" business represen-
tatives, nonprofit groups
and residential advocates
to share their expertise
in building strategies for
achieving a more sus-
tainable future through
job creation, community
building and innovations.
The workshop also
featured presentations on
environmentally friendly
subjects such as alternative
transportation, ecotourism
and the future of the built
environment.
"We like to bring partners
in the community together
to talk about national
best practices and local
success stories in building
the sustainable economy,"
said county Sustainability
Manger Lee Hayes Byron.


"This is about creating jobs,
supporting local busi-
nesses and it's really about
telling local businesses
and residents what they
can do and how we can
grow our community in
a sustainable, long-term,
quality-of-life kind of way.
This is a really good mix
of leaders and those who
want to be engaged."
In addition to exhibits
featuring ways that local
businesses are committed
to caring for the environ-
ment, presentations were
given by journalist and au-
thor Trish Riley, who wrote
a book titled "Idiot's Guide
to GreeningYour Business,"
and Carol Peppe Hewitt,
author of "Financing Our
Foodshed," a book about
growing local food with
"slow money."
Byron said that Riley led
a simple presentation on
helping people move on
their way to a sustainable
business and how to
support those businesses.
Hewitt shared her story
on how she started the
slow money movement -
organizing investors and
donors to steer new sourc-
es of capital to small food
enterprises, organic farms
and local food systems -
in North Carolina and how
it's catalyzed more than
100 peer-to-peer direct
loans from individuals in
the community to help
sustainable farms and


food entrepreneurs.
Hewitt said when she
first heard of the idea of
slow money and investing
in local food businesses,
it sounded like a good
idea for her area. That led
to her putting together a
website, writing a book on
slow money and going on
a national book tour on
the subject. She is trying to
help Don Hall of Transition
Sarasota to bring a similar
program to the county.
North Port Grants and
Environmental Coordinator
Stan Frank said every year
he attends the workshop he
takes away something he
didn't know before. He said
he has been to conferences
and heard speakers all over
the country on sustainabili-
ty something he said has
"changed" him.
"You can't help but get
excited about what this
means to your job and to
me as an individual as a
homeowner," Frank said.
"The entire concept of
sustainability is that we
have a really small planet,
and if we don't treat it with
loving care or we don't
understand that each of us
is in a sense 'borrowing' the
resources, then we won't be
able to pass it on to future
generations. If we don't take
care of it now, generations
ahead of us won't be able
to have what we've enjoyed
today."

Romanian to tell tale of


escape in Punta Gorda


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

GULF COVE Cornel
Dolana, now 75 and a
Gulf Cove Point resident,
does not mind sharing his
story of his escape from
Communist- controlled
Romania.
When asked recently
at the Oyster Creek Golf

hopes people learn from
his story, Dolana said:
"The most important thing
is to realize our freedoms
are important freedom

religion, freedom to
succeed. Here, people take
freedoms for granted."
He will be sharing his
tale at 10 a.m. Dec. 31 at

Author Sharon Rushton
has retold Dolana's odys-

I OUR VIEW

House fails

to get relief

on flood rates

OUR POSITION: Kudos to
U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan and Sen.
Bill Nelson for attempts to get
relief on pending hikes in home-
owners'flood insurance. We expect
a resolution after the holidays.

n the world of Washington
politics, it is not surprising
that both U.S. Rep. Vern
Buchanan and Sen. Bill Nelson
each failed in attempts recent-
ly to postpone crippling hikes
in flood insurance rates for
homeowners.
Buchanan, a Sarasota
Republican, believed he had
the support to get a vote on a
proposal to at least delay the rate
increases for 15 months while a
more permanent solution was
agreed on. Surprisingly, Rep.
Maxine Waters, D-Calif., who
had supported that same idea
just a few months ago, would not
climb aboard the bus.
Waters, ranking member of
the House Financial Services
Committee, was a chief architect
of the bipartisan Biggert-Waters
Flood Insurance Reform Act
that ordered an end to many
premium subsidies for property
owners and a remapping of
communities that has resulted in
horror stories for homeowners
in flood-prone areas, or who live
near the beach.
In one extreme example, a
Florida couple who live in a
house overlooking Boca Ciega
Bay found their annual flood
insurance premium would jump
from $4,300 to nearly $44,000.
There are a number of less
extreme but very high insurance
rate hikes right here in our
communities.
The problem, according
to lawmakers who originally
supported Waters' bill, is that the
Federal Emergency Management
Administration was supposed
to do an affordability study
before the new rates were
implemented.
That study is still two years
away but FEMA elected to
charge the higher rates in 2014.
Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla.,
tried his hand at passing a bill
through the Senate last week
that would delay the rate hikes,
but he also met with opposition
that temporarily at least killed
the bill.
A spokesman for Buchanan
said the representative is in
constant meetings on the
flood insurance issue. He said
Buchanan and others who
support the delay in rate hikes,
like Alcee Hastings, D-Fort
Lauderdale and co-chair of the
Florida delegation, believe they
have a good bill. They remain
optimistic something can be
done after the holidays.
Rep. Tom Rooney's office
said Tuesday that the Florida
Republican has co-sponsored
about every bill to stave off flood
insurance hikes that has been
presented and that he, among
others, is highly supportive of
the bipartisan efforts.
We are perplexed that the
House members are having
such a difficult time. This is
not a partisan issue. The rate
hikes impact homeowners in
California, South Carolina, North
Carolina, Colorado and all along
the Eastern Seaboard.
Lawmakers in states that may
not be so prone to hurricanes
and flooding ask: "What's in this
for us?"
Meanwhile, on the state
front, Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St.
Petersburg, is working on a bill
designed to increase competi-
tion by expanding the number of
insurers offering flood insurance
coverage in the Florida market.
We are pleased so many law-
makers at state and federal levels
are working together, regardless
of party affiliation, to provide
some relief to homeowners.


We tip our hat to Buchanan,
Nelson and others who continue
to champion this fight.


LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

He challenges
rude bike rider

Editor:
The purpose of this letter is
to elicit a response from the
male rider of a three-wheeled
tricycle who shouted at me
(without stopping or slowing
down) on the canal bridge
at Colony Point Drive on the
morning of Dec. 14. His shout-
ed comment that "the brakes
must be on" as I had to slowly
hand-push my tricycle up the
sidewalk of the bridge was
hurtful, arrogant and rude.
I speculate that his male
inadequacies drove him to try
to impress the female riding
a bicycle behind him that he
didn't need to push his tricycle
(towing a dog carrier) up the
acutely sloped, limited sight-
line traffic lane of the bridge.
In my nearly 80 years of riding
bicycles and now, because
of medical issues, a tricycle,
I've never encountered an
untoward and unsafe incident
such as this. Further, and most
importantly, I wish to warn
the female accompanying this
lout, that actions such as this
are often an indication of or
precursor to other forms of
abusive behavior. I challenge
this coward to apologize to
me, as well as the person
accompanying him, in person,
by telephone or on these
pages. Yeah, right.
James Lambert
Punta Gorda

Gun owners
a last resort

Editor:
I read a Sunday letter to the
editor today with disbelief. I
think that the Punta Gorda
writer has a strange way to
look at the issues.
I do not think that all people
should be entitled to own guns.
Some records show that there
are people who have criminal
history or mental issues of re-
cord that should prevent their
gun ownership. We should
continue to do and improve
background checks to expose
and prevent those people from
buying guns anywhere.
That being said, I find it
strange that he feels that
authorized legal gun owners
should have to pay some kind
of "stiff safety and security
fee" to have and own guns. I
absolutely disagree!
However, I might be willing
to pay the "fees" he wrote of


if he and his followers would
pay me a fee for the money
I have spent on guns and
ammo to protect my family,
myself and society in general. I
believe that individual owner-
ship of guns, in addition to the
protections mentioned above,
makes gun owners a final last
resort deterrent that ensures
the governing powers, federal,
state and local, treat us like
citizens of this great country
instead of their subjects.

Port Charlotte

Uses the facts
when writing

Editor:
During the 2012 presiden-
tial election, the Republicans
said, "We will not let the
election be dictated by facts,"
it is obvious from recent
letters that the writers follow
the same policy.
Studies show that if you
say something often enough,
although what you say is not
fact, many people will believe
it. It seems that many recent
letters are from these people.
I often write letters to the
editor, but before I ramble
on with foolishness as these
letter writers do, I check the
facts. It is easy enough to do.
Go to factcheck.org. Obama's
America 2016 is an example
of twisted facts, check it out.
Of course, the old saying
"the blind leading the blind"
will still deter many of these
writers from using common
sense when writing.

Hydrogen is key
to our future

Editor:
Ref. Charlotte Sun issue of
Dec. 16.
I wish to thank Stuart Shaul
for his letter to the editor titled
"Time is now for hydrogen."
I am a professional engineer,
and I agree with Mr. Shaul
regarding his observation
about using hydrogen as a
fuel. In fact, I do believe it
will be the primary energy
and fuel of the future for this
planet. It is unlimited, it can
be processed from water, and
the oceans of the world can be
a source. When it is burned, it
does not pollute, but returns
to water vapor. Plants to
produce hydrogen can be
located at various locations
near the oceans around the
world. It can be processed
and pumped into existing gas


pipeline distribution systems,
and only minor changes need
to be made to burner nozzles
and fuel ignition systems.
It is highly explosive, so
some inerts would need to
be mixed to lower the ex-
plosive thresholds and also
BTU values. I have written
letters to the Department
of Transportation, and
Department of Energy, encour-
aging them to take the lead in
promoting the technology to
convert to hydrogen as a fuel.
The unlimited energy supply
with no pollution is very real. It
will happen, that I am sure.
Carter B. Endsley
Punta Gorda

Ocean property
in Tennessee

Editor:
We are told that President
Obama was briefed on the
recent shooting in Colorado
almost immediately after
it happened. Yet we are to
believe that after six months
neither he nor Holder knew
anything about the death of
our border agent. Days after
the deaths of our ambassador
and three others he was still

Something smells
in Charlotte County

Editor:
I have serious questions
about the East and West
Spring Lake Sewer Project.
If the true purpose of this
project is to preserve and pro-
tect water quality in Charlotte
Harbor, why would the project
not include the areas from
Edgewater to Port Charlotte
Beach? Those homes are all
on canals that eventually lead
to the harbor. In fact, why
wouldn't this area be a priority
and be the starting point for
sewer expansion?
More than five years ago
homeowners in the Spring
Lake area were mandated
to have their septic systems
inspected by licensed septic
contractors and repaired and
or replaced. In addition, we
had to send money to the
county for our "certification"
that our septic system was
properly functioning. This May
we had to repeat this process
or face steep county fines.


Isn't it wonderful that we
have been offered a discount
to "pre-pay" for this sewer
project? All I can think of how
MurdockVillage worked out
for those poor property owners
and all of us who pay for the
debacle that has been going on
for years. So forgive me for not
trusting our county leaders.
Unfortunately, despite the
wholehearted efforts of the
grass-roots group, SOS, our
so-called leaders are going to
do what works in their best in-
terests, yet again. Something
really smells, but I can tell you
is not my septic system.

Living in a
neat neighborhood

Editor:
I was raised in a working
class neighborhood with single
and double (we called them
flats) homes. There were many
rentals.
The homes were neatly
maintained, yards well kept
and garbage cans were put
away, out of sight. There were
no vehicles blocking sidewalks.
A stray piece of trash would
be picked up and neighbors
helped each other.
There were no gated
communities or fines for
non-compliance.
People just cared for their
homes because it was the right
thing to do.
I still strive to live in that
kind of neighborhood. How
about you?
Merry Christmas!

Port Charlotte
is uninviting

Editor:
I spend a great deal of time
traveling up and down U.S.
41 from Punta Gorda through
Port Charlotte to North Port's
Cocoplum Plaza area.
I am really embarrassed, to
say the least, at the appear-
ance of Port Charlotte all year,
not just during the Christmas
season. North Port's light poles
are decorated. Downtown
Punta Gorda is beautiful
also. There, the plazas are
lit at night and a feeling of
Christmas is in the air.
I do not see one wreath,
except for Whiskey Creek
restaurant and the only light
display was State Insurance,
a very beautiful one at that.
I also must make mention
of the nativity scene at the
Lutheran Church, always a
reminder of the reason for the
season.
The other 11 months of the
year, Port Charlotte looks like
a place to drive through, not
a place to stop, shop and eat.
It is very dark and a great deal
of the plazas are not lit up. I
applaud the car dealership
at Harbor Boulevard for their
landscaping and improve-
ments. It's a lot more inviting
than the empty gas station
area between Harbor Nissan
and Baer's.
Commissioner Duffy should
drive around Port Charlotte
and see for herself that more
plants and trees are needed
in the medians to draw our
eyes away from the empty
storefronts. Make it easier for
more businesses and restau-
rants to come to U.S. 41 from
the bridge north to Murdock.
Empty lots near Dairy Queen
and Long John Silver's need a
structure with a viable tenant.
Stop using Hurricane
Charley as an excuse and get
to work on improving "all" of
Port Charlotte.

Lessons from the auto bailout


hen will the
criticism of
Obamacare
finally end?
I've done some
research on the question,
and by my calculations,
judging from current
trends, this will happen
approximately ... never.
I base this on the crit-
icism of the auto bailout
of early 2009. Almost five
years later, the industry
is healthy again and large
swaths of the Midwest
have been spared what
would have been certain
economic devastation.
All this was achieved for
a relatively modest sum:
When the government's
last shares of General
Motors were sold last
week, the total cost to
save GM and Chrysler
came to about $12 billion.
It would seem that the
argument against the
bailout has been settled.
Yet opponents continue
to argue their case if
anybody will listen.
On Monday, I resolved
to listen. I went to the


National Press Club,
where the National
Legal and Policy Center,
a conservative group,
was arguing that the GM
bailout was a big mis-
take. When I arrived two
minutes before the start
of the news conference, I
was the only reporter in
the room; eventually, two
others joined me.
Peter Flaherty, the
group's president, stared
into a lone camera. "At
its most fundamental
level, the auto bailout is
a failure," he proclaimed.
"There's only been a
modest culture change"
at GM, he said, and "the
bailout did not save
jobs." What's more, he
said, GM's reorganization


"was government-
orchestrated theft."
When Flaherty
finished speaking, he
asked for questions.
Nobody stirred. Feeling
pity, I asked if he really
thought the auto bailout
had no impact on U.S.
employment.
"Yes," he replied.
And the Troubled
Assets Relief Program -
which the auto bailout
was part of that
returned a profit to
taxpayers of $11 billion
overall?
"I think it was a
mistake," he said.
Flaherty was offering a
pre-buttal to GM's chief
executive, Dan Akerson,
who spoke at the press
club two hours later.
Unlike Flaherty, Akerson
had some concrete evi-
dence to show why the
bailout had been worth
the cost: a $21.3 billion
initial public offering
for GM, 15 profitable
quarters and total profits
of nearly $30 billion,
$10 billion invested in


U.S. facilities (including
$1.3 billion announced
Monday), a return to an
investment-grade rating
for its bonds, and 26,000
jobs preserved.
Akerson who is
soon to be replaced by
Mary Barra, GM's chief
of product development
and the first woman to
run a major automobile
company -was a
private-equity guy who
joined the company
after the bailout. But
asked his opinion of
the bailout decision,
he cited a study by the
Center for Automotive
Research that concluded
that overall it saved the
government $36 billion
to $38 billion in costs
such as unemployment
benefits, and that didn't
include $26 billion
in pension liabilities
that would have been
dumped on taxpayers.
"The automotive
industry in this country
is somewhere between
3.5 and 4 percent of total
GDP," he said. "To have


ceded that to foreign
competition in my
opinion, as an American
- would have been a
serious mistake."
The study Akerson
cited calculated that the
bailout saved 1.2 million
to 2.6 million jobs in
2009 alone. But the
National Legal and Policy
Center's Flaherty offered
a breezy dismissal of that
report: "Not surprising,
in light of the fact that
the center is substantially
funded by the govern-
ment." (The Center for
Automotive Research
reports that 16 percent
of its money comes from
the government.)
Few people have heard
of Flaherty or are likely
to care what he thinks of
the bailout. But his undi-
minished opposition to
it, a position many con-
servatives share, is worth
examining because there
is apparently no pattern
of facts that would
change it. This, I suspect,
is what Obamacare is up
against.


Flaherty was sure
the bailout didn't work
because his theory says
it couldn't work. "The
massive misallocation of
capital to an inefficient
market purchase can
only cost jobs in the long
run," he argued.
But in the long run,
we're all dead. And the
dramatic, and rapid,
collapse of the American
automotive industry in
2009 could have rippled
across the economy,
setting off panic and
perhaps a depression.
Again, Flaherty scoffed.
"These dire stories ...
about a depression being
triggered or the economy
of the Midwest collaps-
ing were just totally
overblown and wrong,"
he said.
We will never know for
sure. But we can believe
either opponents of the
bailout, or our lying eyes.

One job no one seems to want


uch has been
written about
Florida's lieu-
tenant governor. Not the
person currently there
is no one in the job -
but, rather, the position.
There has been
speculation about who
would eventually fill the
position that has been
vacant for nine months
since Jennifer Carroll
stepped aside. While she
formally resigned, it is
widely believed she was
asked to do so.
"Who will be the next
lieutenant governor" is a
fun political parlor game,
yet it glosses over a sad
reality: Does it really
matter? The position
has been vacant for the
better part of a year -
and are we any worse off
for it?
The position has
no formal duties or
responsibilities. Once
asked to join the ticket,
the candidate performs
as head cheerleader for
the campaign and as a
surrogate for the top of
the ticket. There's not
much public opportunity
for independent thought
or personal opinion.
The lieutenant gov-
ernor does not serve
on the three-person
Cabinet, and therefore
does not get involved
in any of the weighty
clemency issues or land
acquisition decisions.
Likewise, he or she is left
out of the voting on rules
and procedures involv-
ing the 12 boards and
commissions that the
governor and Cabinet
oversee. The lieutenant


governor is not even
needed to break a 2-2-tie
vote. In case of a tie,
the governor's position
prevails.
Historically, the state
did without a lieutenant
governor. Then in 1968
the position was rein-
stated. Carroll served as
only Florida's 18th.
Nationally, five
states do not have a




riji


lieutenant governor, and
in four other states the
lieutenant governor is
equivalent to the secre-
tary of state.
In Florida, the
position is created in
our state constitution
and a few particulars
appear in state statutes,
but for the most part
there is little structure,
authority and responsi-
bility enumerated. The
lieutenant governor's
primary duty is to
replace the governor in
the case of his death,
resignation or inability
to perform the duties of
the office. Additionally,
the lieutenant governor
may have other duties
as assigned by the
governor and the Florida
Legislature.
The position comes
with an impressive title,
a nice suite of offices
in close proximity to
the governor and a
respectable salary of
$125,000. Depending on
the managing style of the
governor, the lieutenant
governor can be given
some challenging tasks
or can become a cere-
monial ribbon-cutter or
funeral attender.
During the tenure of
two governors: Lawton
Chiles and Jeb Bush; sev-
eral lieutenant governors
seemed to enjoy more
of a true partnership in
governing.
Lawton Chiles had
already achieved politi-
cal success, culminating
with a powerful chair-
manship in the U.S.
Senate. He surprised
many with his decision
to run for governor. He
chose Buddy MacKay

as his running mate
and entrusted him with
great autonomy and
responsibility. Perhaps
due to Chiles' health and
advanced age or perhaps
because he had little
left to prove in terms
of a political legacy, he
shared the duties and
power in a rare political
partnership. As a result,
McKay was prepared to
move into the role, albeit
for a very short duration,
when Chiles did, in fact,
die in office.
Under Gov. Jeb Bush,
Lt. Gov. Frank Brogan,
the former education
commissioner, worked
directly with legislators
to craft some of Bush's
top policy priorities
involving education and
the environment. During
those years, I remember
having frequent work
sessions with Brogan on
comprehensive growth
management reform.
There was little doubt
among Tallahassee
insiders that Brogan had
the governor's ear and
the juice to get the job
done.
After Brogan left the
position, Bush turned
to former Senate
President Toni Jennings,
a well-respected and
strategic political player.
As lieutenant governor,


Jennings was skillful at
using her relationships
to shepherd Bush's top
priorities through the
legislative process to
final passage.
Most lieutenant
governors didn't enjoy
this type of authority
and responsibility.
Additionally, the po-
sition seldom led to
higher elected office.
While it can be much
more, the position has

not included in the
overall district grades.
"With the elementary

"On the conference

high school grades) with
the (state education)

continued. "This has
now become an issue

we're going to make an
issue out of it."
According to the
FDOE, recognition

located by North Port

Ramsingh, who was
not injured, was charged
with leaving the scene
of a crash and driving
without a proper
endorsement, Bueno
said, but he was unsure
of why Ramsingh fled
the scene following the

According to a report,
Ramsingh was working
for a trucking com-
pany that served as a
subcontractor with the
widening project, but
neither Parks nor FDOT
spokeswoman Debbie
Tower provided the
name of the company.
Parks said Ramsingh
worked for a "trucking

a consultant for the
paving company for

subcontractor for the

the interstate widening,
despite not having
the proper credentials
to operate the truck.
Parks did not comment
on Ramsingh's lack of
credentials.
The Charlotte County
Sheriff's Office charged
Ramsingh in November
with DUI, according
to its website, and he
has a Charlotte County
address listed on the
17800 block of Murdock
Circle, Murdock. Bueno
was unsure if either the
Murdock or the North


Miami address was
the most current for
Ramsingh, who also had
mortgages dating back
to 1994 in Miami-Dade
County, according to
the Miami-Dade Clerk
of Court.
Alcohol was not a

ing to the FHP.
According to the

for an acceptable

turf grass.
"That terrifies us at
public works. We have a
hard time taking care of
what we have now," he
added. "To get into golf
course type lawns, it just


didn't excite us a whole
lot."
So Gering suggested
the city stick with bahia,
include irrigation, and
eliminate the under-
ground drain system in
favor of rolling terrain
that would still allow
for adequate drainage.
The cost of the revised
project would drop from
$414,000 to $160,000,
and could start right


after the Fourth of July
celebration, Gering said.
"And with that won-
derful savings, we're
proposing... an expan-
sion of the electrical
system that's out there,"
Gering said, to accom-
modate the vendors who
frequently put on large
events at the park who
need more access to
more electric. The cost
of that upgrade will be


about $30,000, Gering
said.
The City Council
had no problem with
expanding the electrical
system, but officials flat-
ly rejected the continued
use of bahia grass.
"Part of the problem at
Laishley Park is the ve-

Congress passes budget


President to sign measure with


By DAVID ESPO
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
WASHINGTON Congress
sent President Barack Obama
legislation Wednesday scaling back
across-the-board cuts to programs
ranging from the Pentagon to the
national park system, adding a late
dusting of bipartisanship to a year
more likely to be remembered for
a partial government shutdown
and near-perpetual gridlock.
Obama's signature was as-
sured on the measure, which
lawmakers in both parties and at
opposite ends of the Capitol said
they hoped would curb budget
brinkmanship and prevent more
shutdowns in the near future.


The legislation passed the
Democratic-controlled Senate on
a vote of 64-36, six days after clear-
ing the Republican-run House by
a similarly bipartisan margin of
332-94.
The product of intensive
year-end talks, the measure met
the short-term political needs of
Republicans, Democrats and the
White House. As a result, there was
no suspense about the outcome
of the vote in the Senate only
about fallout in the 2014 elections
and, more immediately, its impact
on future congressional disputes
over spending and the nation's
debt limit.

Fed plans to reduce bond purchases


By MARTIN CRUTSINGER
AP ECONOMICS WRITER
WASHINGTON The Federal
Reserve has sent its strongest vote
of confidence in the U.S. economy
since the Great Recession struck six
years ago: It's decided the economy
is finally strong enough to with-
stand a slight pullback in the Fed's
stimulus.
Yet the Fed also made clear it's
hardly withdrawing its support for
an economy that remains below full
health. Chairman Ben Bernanke
stressed at a news conference that
the Fed would still work to keep
borrowing rates low to try to spur
spending and growth and increase
very low inflation.
The Fed said in a statement after
its policy meeting ended Wednesday


that it will trim its $85 billion
a month in bond purchases by
$10 billion starting in January. And
Bernanke said the Fed expects to
make "similar moderate" cuts in
its purchases if economic gains
continue.
At the same time, the Fed
strengthened its commitment to
record-low short-term rates. It said
it plans to hold its key short-term
rate near zero "well past" the time
when unemployment falls below
6.5 percent. Unemployment is now
7 percent.
The Fed's bond purchases have
been intended to drive down long-
term borrowing rates by increasing
demand for the bonds. The prospect
of a lower pace of purchases could

Insurers allow more time to pay under health law


By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
WASHINGTON -
Consumers anxious over
tight insurance deadlines and
lingering computer problems
during the holidays will
get extra time to pay their
premiums under President
Barack Obama's health care
law, insurers announced
Wednesday.
The board of the industry's
biggest trade group -
America's Health Insurance
Plans said consumers who


select a plan by Dec. 23 will
now have until Jan. 10 to pay
their first month's premium.
That's 10 extra days beyond a
New Year's Eve deadline set by
the government.
The voluntary move comes
as insurers and the govern-
ment try to head off anticipat-
ed problems around the first
of the year, when new cover-
age options for the uninsured
take effect under Obama's
law, and when several million
people whose existing policies
were canceled must switch to
new plans.


Expect even bigger political
trouble for the president
if consumers who made
a good-faith effort to get
covered through the govern-
ment's balky website show up
at the pharmacy and can't get
prescriptions filled, or if they
turn up in the emergency
room and there's no record
that they are enrolled. The
stakes would be higher this
time because someone's
health could be jeopardized.
The administration ap-
plauded the industry deci-
sion. It will "ultimately make


it easier for consumers to
enroll" through the new on-
line insurance markets, said
Health and Human Services
spokeswoman Joanne Peters.

Job satisfaction's
'train crash' for

workplaces that it can be
hard to see what's notable
about any new bleak
report on job satisfac-
tion especially one
that focuses on unhappy
federal workers.
And yet for the more
than 2 million federal em-

views on whether they
can report law violations,
whether their agency
is coerced by partisan
politics, and whether the
workforce has the skills
and resources to achieve
their agency's mission.
In short, job satisfac-

Controversial Tampa water project OK'd


(Tampa Bay Times) -A
controversial plan to pump
water out of a Tampa sink-
hole to supplement the
flow of the Hillsborough
River won unanimous
support Tuesday from the
Southwest FloridaWater
Management District
board.
The city's $11 million
plan calls for pumping up
to 2 million gallons a day
from Blue Sink, a complex
of sinkholes in Sulphur
Springs, then piping that
water to the base of the
dam on the river and
pouring it out.
The water from Blue
Sink is supposed to help
replace the river flow that
was lost when the city


built the dam in 1897 to
create a reservoir that
provides Tampa's drink-
ing water. The restored
freshwater flow will help
hold the salinity of Tampa
Bay in check, which is
important for the health
of the snook and other
fish living there.
However, people who
live around Blue Sink fear
pumping water from the
sinkholes will create even
more sinkholes, not to
mention draining their
lakes and sucking their
private wells dry.
"We're just concerned
about what might
happen," JimWilson
of the North Forest
Hills Neighborhood


Association told the board
of the agency commonly
called Swiftmud.
TampaWater
Department chief Brad
Baird said that the
neighbors have nothing to
worry about. He pointed
out that the permit
requires regular monitor-
ing of Blue Sink, as well as
a promise by the city to
fix any problems that the
pumping might cause.
The city's engineers,
in their application for a
30-year pumping permit,
estimated that at most the
city would need to pump
water from the sink just
287 to 318 days out of a
year. Some years, Baird
said, they might not need


any water from the sink
at all.
The city's studies say
none of the 800 wells
within a 1-mile radius "is
expected to be signifi-
cantly impacted" by that
amount of pumping. At
most they might drop
two-tenths of a foot, the
city's engineers predict.
But those conclusions
are based on a pair of 30-
day pumping tests and a
computer model, and the
neighbors are not buying
the test results.
Hydrologists have
repeatedly pointed
out that the computer
model commonly used for
Florida water permitting
assumes that what is


underground is sand.
It's actually karst, a Swiss
cheese arrangement of
crumbling limestone,
which alters both the
speed and the direction of
the flow of the aquifer.
Not all the neighbors
felt the same way. Barbara
Ewanowski, whose
family has long owned
Ewanowski Spring, point-
ed out that her spring
provides the water that
flows through Blue Sink.
But since the sinkhole was
plugged with trash and
other debris, the water
has repeatedly backed up
and flooded her property,
killing dozens of oak trees.
Pumping water out
of Blue Sink would help


restore her property, she
said, so she's supporting
the project.
So is Friends of the
River, the group that has
pushed hardest for re-
storing the Hillsborough's
historic flow into Tampa
Bay.
Swiftmud is more than
just the regulator issuing
the permit for the Blue
Sink pumping.
It's also Tampa's partner
on the Blue Sink project,
paying half of the tab.
Swiftmud also happens
to be the regulator that
pushed for restoring the
river's flow into Tampa
Bay and is now overseeing
how Tampa carries out
that order.

Property insurance
rate study
extension granted

TALLAHASEE (News
Service of Florida) -
Insurance Commissioner
Kevin McCarty has
received a four-week
extension from the office
of Chief Financial Officer
JeffAtwater to complete a
study about why proper-
ty-insurance premiums
have not come down
along with reinsurance
costs.
Atwater had requested
on Oct. 29 that the study
by the Office of Insurance
Regulation be completed
by Dec. 18. However, on
Dec. 12, McCarty wrote
Atwater that an extension
would allow the inclusion
of additional company
rate filings.
"An extension of the
due date of the report
to January 15, 2014 will
afford adequate time to
accomplish this goal,"
McCarty wrote. Atwater's
request came two weeks
after Jack Nicholson,
executive director of
the Florida Hurricane
Catastrophe Fund, said
the state-created fund -
basically a public pool
that provides insurance
for insurance companies
- has been able to build
its largest cash reserve
ever, at nearly $10 billion.
Reinsurance is backup
insurance for insurance
companies. Insurers
in the past often have
pointed to high reinsur-
ance costs as a rationale
for increasing consumers'
rates.
In August, Atwater
asked McCarty to explain
why property insurers
hadn't reduced premi-
ums at a time when
reinsurance costs had
dropped, on average,
15 percent to 20 percent
worldwide. McCarty
responded at that time
that insurance companies
might be increasing the
amount of reinsurance
they purchase rather
than reducing rates and
that not enough time
may have passed for the
lower reinsurance costs to
result in lower customer
premiums.

DNA from Neanderthal reveals interbreeding


LOS ANGELES (LA
Times) -A 50,000-year-
old toe bone found in a
Siberian cave is giving
scientists a surprising view
of the breeding habits of
early humans.
In what has been
described as a "Lord of
the Rings"-type world,
researchers say that Homo
sapiens, Neanderthals
and two other groups of
early humans mingled and
interbred thousands of
years before all species but
ours became extinct.
The findings were
presentedWednesday
in the journal Nature by
a team of scientists who
sequenced the DNA from
the Neanderthal toe fossil
and compared it to the

supported the bill yet will

in next year's campaign
for a new term. His
likely Republican rival,
Rep. Tom Cotton, voted
against the measure last
week when it cleared the
House.
The measure, negotiat-
ed by Sen. Patty Murray,
D-Wash., and Rep. Paul
Ryan, R-Wis., averts
$63 billion in across-
the-board spending cuts
that were themselves
the result of an earlier

genomes of 25 present-day
humans, as well as the
genome of a sister group
to Neanderthals called
Denisovans. According to
their analysis, Neanderthals
contributed roughly
2 percent of their DNA to
modem people outside
Africa and half a percent to
Denisovans, who contrib-
uted 0.2 percent of their
DNA to Asian and Native
American people.
The biggest surprise,
though, was the finding
that a fourth hominin
contributed roughly
6 percent of the DNA in the
Denisovan genome. The
identity of this DNA donor
remains a mystery.
"It is possible that this
unknown hominin was


what is known from the
fossil record as Homo
erectus," said lead study
author Kay Prufer, a
geneticist at the Max Planck
Institute for Evolutionary
Anthropology in Leipzig,
Germany. "Further studies
are necessary to support or
reject this possibility."
Geneticists and anthro-
pologists said the inch-long
bone and resulting analysis
have greatly illuminated
a period of time roughly
12,000 to 126,000 years ago.
"It does seem that
Eurasia during the Late
Pleistocene was an
interesting place to be a
hominin, with individuals
of at least four quite
diverged groups living,
meeting and occasionally


having sex," biologist Ewan
Bimey of the European
Bioinformatics Institute
and Stanford geneticist
Jonathan Pritchard wrote
in a commentary that
accompanied the study.
The toe bone was discov-
ered in an ancient natural
shelter called Denisova
Cave, in Siberia's Altai
Mountains. It was in the
same cave that archaeolo-
gists discovered evidence of
the Denisovans, who were
recognized as a distinct
group in 2010.
Based on DNA taken
from the toe bone,
researchers were able to
determine that it belonged
to a female Neanderthal.
They could also tell that
her parents were very


closely related, and "were
either half siblings who
had a mother in common,
double first cousins, an
uncle and a niece, an aunt
and a nephew, a grandfa-
ther and a granddaughter,
or a grandmother and a
grandson," they wrote in
the study. Such inbreeding
might have been necessary
because the Neanderthal
population was very small,
perhaps already well on the
road toward extinction, the
study authors suggested.
"The data are consistent
with the population being
small enough that breed-
ing among relatives was
reasonably common," said
University of California,
biologist Montgomery
Slatkidn.

Poll: Obama
int'l ratings top
domestic ones

WASHINGTON (AP) -
President Barack Obama's
approval ratings for
handling foreign policy
issues generally top his
ratings for most domestic
issues, including the
economy and health
care, according to a new
Associated Press-GfK poll.
But the poll also suggests
a majority of Americans
want the president to pull
troops out of Afghanistan
faster than he's doing,
and many are skeptical
about a tentative nuclear
deal with Iran.
The poll found that
57 percent now say going
to war in Afghanistan
after the 2001 terror
attacks was probably the
"wrong thing to do." And
53 percent say the pace of
the planned withdrawal is
too slow, 34 percent said
the pace was just about
right and 10 percent said
it was too fast. All combat
troops are scheduled to
leave by the end of 2014.

Great Train
Robbery figure
Biggs dies at 84

(Washington Post) -
Ronnie Biggs, a British
thief with a roguish streak
who had a minor role
in the 1963 Great Train
Robbery, one of the more
flamboyant crimes in
modern history, and who
became one of the world's
most wanted and unre-
pentant fugitives, died
Wednesday in London.
He was 84.
The death was con-
firmed by his daughter-
in-law, Veronica Biggs,
who did not provide a
cause.
He suffered from pneu-
monia and other ailments
that led the government
to grant him compassion-
ate release from prison
in August 2009. He had
turned himself in to
British authorities in 2001
after 36 years on the run.
Biggs, who fashioned
himself as "the last of the
gentleman crooks," spent
much of his life brashly
evading and taunting
Scotland Yard, first from
Australia and later from
Brazil.

Palestinians ready

BElT JALLA, West

Palestinian peace negoti-
ator says the Palestinians
are ready to extend the
current talks with Israel
beyond an April deadline
- if there is a framework

The comments by Saeb
Erekat mark the first time
the Palestinians have
endorsed the U.S. idea of
seeking a preliminary-
not final peace deal.
Under U.S.-pressure,
Israel and the Palestinians
resumed negotiations
last summer, agreeing to
talk for nine months with
the goal of a permanent
peace agreement. With
little progress so far,
the Americans are now
setting their sights on a
preliminary deal.

Russia passes
amnesty bill,
questions remain

MOSCOW (AP) -
Russia's parliament
on Wednesday passed
an amnesty bill that
will likely apply to the
30-member crew of a
Greenpeace ship detained
after an Arctic protest,
but it wasn't immediately
clear if and when the
activists would be allowed
to leave the country.
The amnesty, which
also would likely free the
two jailed members of the
Pussy Riot punk band,
has been largely viewed
as the Kremlin's attempt
to soothe criticism of
Russia's human rights
records ahead of the
Winter Olympics in
Sochi in February. But
opposition lawmakers
argued it doesn't go
nearly far enough and the
complicated legislation
appeared to leave many
questions open.
The State Duma on
Wednesday voted 446-0
in favor of the carefully
tailored bill, which mostly
applies to those who
haven't committed violent
crimes, first-time offend-
ers, minors and women
with small children.

$25 million in additional
aid Wednesday to help
the country deal with the

The proposal seeks to
address worries about
animal welfare and other
ethical concerns related
to use of cloning, the
commission, the 28-na-
tion EU's executive arm in
Brussels, said Wednesday.
Cloning for now is so
expensive that its use
for food production isn't
viable, according to the
agency.
The EU, with a popu-
lation of more than 500
million people, produces


20 percent of the world's
pork, 11 percent of its
beef and accounts for 30
percent of global cheese
exports, data from the
United Nations' Food &
Agriculture Organization
show.


CAIRO (AP) Egypt's
top prosecutor on
Wednesday referred
toppled Islamist
President Mohammed
Morsi to trial on charges
he conspired with the
Palestinian group Hamas,
Lebanon's Hezbollah
and others to carry out
a campaign of terrorist
violence to destabilize
the country following his
ouster.
The charges, which
carry a potential death
penalty, are the most
sweeping and heaviest
accusations yet in a
series of trials against the
Brotherhood. The new
trial of Morsi, the three
top Brotherhood leaders
and 32 other defendants
appeared aimed at
decisively crippling the
top echelons of the group
that dominated Egypt's
politics during Morsi's
one-year presidency.
Since the military oust-
ed Morsi on July 3 fol-
lowing massive protests
against him, security
forces have unleashed a
heavy crackdown on the
Brotherhood that killed
hundreds of pro-Morsi
protesters and arrested
thousands, while the
group has persisted in

daily protests against the
new government.
Previous, ongoing
trials of Morsi and other
Brotherhood leaders
have focused on ac-
cusations the group is
implicated in violence.
But the new charges
take that claim to a
new level, aiming to
link the group to a
nascent Islamic mili-
tant insurgency in the
Sinai Peninsula that
accelerated after Morsi's
fall and making the
wider claim that the
Brotherhood was en-
meshed with terrorists
since 2005 in deals aimed


attaining and h

Syrian aircraft pound Aleppo for 4th day


BEIRUT (AP) Syrian
government aircraft
dumped barrels packed
with explosives on at least
four opposition-held
neighborhoods of Aleppo
on Wednesday, the
fourth day of stepped-up
airstrikes on the contest-
ed northern city, activists
said.
The air campaign,
which activists say killed
more than 100 people in
the first three days alone,
suggests that Syrian
President Bashar Assad's
forces are trying to crush
opposition in Aleppo
ahead of an interna-
tional peace conference
planned for late January
in Switzerland.
Aleppo, Syria's largest
city and once its commer-
cial hub, has been a ma-
jor front in the country's
civil war since the rebels
launched an offensive
there in mid-2012. Since
then, bloody street battles


have carved the city up
into opposition- and
government-controlled
areas.
Wednesday's airstrikes
hit at least four neigh-
borhoods in the city, said
Aleppo-based activist Abu
al-Hassan Marea. One of
them exploded near the
Ahmad al-Qassar school,
while another landed by
a student dormitory, he
said via Skype.
Marea and the Britain-
based Syrian Observatory
for Human Rights said
at least two people were
killed in the air raids.
They expect casualty
figures to rise.
Activists in Aleppo say
the four-day offensive has
been the most intense
they've seen since the
beginning of the uprising
against Assad in March
2011.
The Syrian government

bombs, which contain


Britain to issue

plastic money


LONDON (LA Times)
- Paper or plastic? No,
not what kind of bag do
you want your purchases
in; it's what kind of mon-
ey you'll use to pay for
them, at least in Britain.
The Bank of England
announced Wednesday
that, beginning in 2016,
it will start issuing
polymer banknotes in
other words, plastic
money in place of
the paper kind. New
five-pound bills put into
circulation that year
will not only feature
a portrait ofWinston
Churchill but should be


more resistant against
wear and tear and unin-
tended journeys through
the washing machine.
The switch to plastic
is expected to save
money, in more ways
than one. The polymer
banknotes should
last at least 2 times
longer than paper ones,
officials say. And that
means printing costs
will be less in the long
run. "Ensuring trust and
confidence in money
is at the heart of what
central banks do," Mark
Carney, the governor
of the Bank of England,

hundreds of kilograms
(pounds) of explosives
and cause massive
damage on impact.
Activists describe the
bombs as "barrels of
blood" because of their
devastating effect.
The government air
assault has overwhelmed
Aleppo's already over-
taxed medical facilities,
the international aid
group Doctors Without
Borders warned Tuesday.
It said hospitals are strug-
gling to cope with the
influx of casualties, and
the facilities are running
out of drugs and medical
supplies.
In a reflection of
Aleppo's grim reality,
Marea said some of the
residents have gotten
used to the bombing. On
Tuesday, some 100 meters
(yards) from a bombing
site, "people were buying
and selling like nothing
had happened," he said.


Another Aleppo-based
activist, Mohammed
Hussein said residents
used to flee from where
they thought the bombs
would land. "Now they
just watch. If it seems
to be heading in their
direction, they hide if
they have time," Hussein
told the AP, also on
Skype.
Syria's main Western-
backed opposition group,
the Syrian National
Council, accused the
international community
on Tuesday of "failing to
take any serious position
that would guarantee a
stop to the bloodbath"
in Aleppo ahead of the
peace talks.
The country's conflict,
now in its third year,
appears to have escalated
in recent weeks as both
sides maneuver ahead
of next month's planned
peace talks and ignore
calls for a cease-fire.

Stocks soar as Fed cuts




stimulus, citing jobs


NEWYORK(AP) -The
stock market had a swift
and clear reaction to the
Federal Reserve's decision
to trim its stimulus efforts:
This wasn't so bad after all.
Stocks surged
Wednesday, lifting the Dow
Jones industrial average
nearly 300 points, after the
Fed decided it was time
to start modestly scaling
back its program to boost
America's growth and stock
market. The central bank
cited a stronger jobs market
and improving economy.
Stock investors had
long anticipated the Fed


would pull back at some
point, but did not think it
would happen until next
year. Despite the surprise,
investors took the central
bank's decision Wednesday
as a sign that that the stock
market was strong enough
to keep soaring, even with
less rocket fuel from the
Fed.
"Investors should see this
as a vote of confidence for
the economy," said Kristina
Hooper, head of U.S.
investment strategies for
Allianz Global Investors
The Dow jumped 292
points, or nearly 2 percent,


to 16,167.97 -another all-
time high for the blue-chip
index. Shortly before the
Fed announcement at
2 p.m., the Dow was up just
47 points.
The broader Standard &
Poor's 500 index rose
29 points, also 2 percent,
to 1,810.65 and the Nasdaq
composite rose 46 points,
or 1 percent, to 4,070.06.
The rally adds to what
has already been a historic
run for stocks. The S&P 500
is up nearly 27 percent, its
best yearly performance
since the dot-comn boom of
the late 1990s.


Anxious retailers stretch


(LA Times) -With
a week to go before
Christmas, retailers are
in full battle mode, with
many unveiling plans to
keep their stores open
for marathon stretches
to give last-minute gift
buyers every opportunity
to spend.
Toys R Us will throw
its doors wide starting
at 6a.m. Dec.21 -the
consumption craze known
as Super Saturday- and
won't wrap up until 9 p.m.
Christmas Eve. During that
87-hour spree, the chain
also will tempt customers
with price-matching
programs, a constant cycle
of inventory updates and
discounts on hot items
such as the Furby Boom
toy.
In New York's Times
Square, the Toys R Us store
has been open since 8 a.m.
Dec. 1 and will remain
operational through
10 p.m. on Dec. 24 in an


holiday houi

unprecedented 566-hour
run.
Then there's Kohl's,
whose doors will stay
unlocked for more than
100 straight hours for the
first time. From 6 a.m. on
Dec. 20 through 6 p.m. on
Christmas Eve, shoppers
will have access to free
gift boxes and the ability
to order from a wider
assortment of goods listed
in digital in-store kiosks.
Stores are throw-
ing extended hours,
price-matching guaran-
tees, shipping deals and
door-buster-style deals
at consumers- anything
to smooth their path to
splurging.
Merchants are facing big
challenges this year.
The sour memory of
a less-than-spectacular
Black Friday weekend is
still fresh. The industry
is already most of the
way through the shortest
Thanksgiving-to-Christmas


stretch in a decade. And
consumer confidence
remains fragile.
Harsh weather in the
Midwest and Northeast
over the weekend caused
bricks-and-mortar
retail sales last Saturday to
plunge 5.4 percent from
the same period last year
at malls and other shop-
ping venues as foot traffic
tanked nearly 26 percent,
according to data firm
ShopperTrak.
Failure to move mer-
chandise before Christmas
will likely require even
steeper discounting in the
waning days of December
for retailers to clear shelves
for spring inventory, said
ShopperTrak founder Bill
Martin. With all-night hol-
iday schedules, businesses
are probably hoping to
draw shoppers who work
the late shift, teenagers
and any other consumers
they've missed during
daylight hours.


t's difficult to under-
stand the true cost
of a smartphone,
according to Consumer
Reports. In the quest by
major wireless carriers to
reduce the upfront costs
of those pocket-sized
computers, they adver-
tise heavily discounted
phones, then lock cus-
tomers into expensive,
long-term service agree-
ments and push them
to overbuy data plans.
Many customers are
so bewildered with the
buying process that they
renew with their existing
carriers as a matter of
course.
In the annual
Consumer Reports
National Research Center
survey covering more
than 58,000 subscribers
in 23 metro areas, most
respondents stayed with
their provider more than
two years, the length of a
standard contract, even
though only half were
highly satisfied. And
with each new contract,
customers are induced
to abandon perfectly ser-
viceable phones in favor
of newer, more advanced
models. "Wireless service
has always been one
of the most complex
purchases a human can
possibly make," says
Eddie Hold, a wireless
industry analyst with
market research firm
NPD Group. "It's always
been horrific."
But the landscape is
changing. The two-year
contract is under assault.
Consumer Reports'
exclusive report shows
that no-contract and
prepaid service from
smaller companies such
as Consumer Cellular
and TracFone rank high


Consumer

Reports


in customer satisfaction.
Those carriers offer
high-quality phones,
relatively reliable service
and simpler, more
consumer-friendly
plans. Indeed, Consumer
Cellular and TracFone
did better than the major
standard providers in
CR's annual customer
satisfaction survey for
the past few years.
Larger carriers such as
AT&T, Sprint and Verizon
also offer contract-free
services. Meanwhile,
T-Mobile, the smallest
of the big-four carriers,
has dispensed with
contracts for service
and has decoupled the
cost of the phone from
the cost of service. Yet
T-Mobile still allows
customers to spread
out the cost of a phone
over a 24-month period.
AT&T and Verizon now
offer similarly structured
"installment plans"
for phones that allow
customers to upgrade
their device after six
months or a year, though
they don't discount their
monthly service the way
T-Mobile does.
What's behind all the
confusion and mis-
leading pricing is the
phone subsidy. To make
higher-end smartphones
that could typically cost
$400 to $650 seem more
affordable, carriers bury
much of that cost in the
price of service, then
stretch it out over the life
of a contract. That makes
phones cost less upfront
than they would on the
open market and makes


service cost more.
Service costs are driv-
en up further by plans
that force you to buy
data in bulk increments.
Among respondents
who had data plans
that set limits on usage,
38 percent used only
half, or less, of their
monthly allotment. As a
result, many customers
may well have overpaid
for their wireless service.


The best carriers

Tiny Consumer
Cellular was the leader
in Consumer Reports'
satisfaction survey, with
top scores for value, data
and support. Ironically,
Consumer Cellular
uses the network of
lower-ranked AT&T. (It's
worth noting, however,
that Consumer Cellular
customers in the survey
didn't use data heavily.)
Other highlights:
*Verizon once again
scored the highest
overall among the major
contract cellular service
providers. Respondents
gave the company high
marks for data service
and some aspects of
customer support.
T-Mobile and AT&T
rated a peg behindVerizon,
with mostly ho-hum
marks, except for AT&T's
top-rated 4G service.
Sprint has fallen
to the bottom of the
ratings, receiving low
marks for value, voice,
text and 4G reliability.
Prepaid carriers
TracFone, Straight Talk
and NetIO (brands of
TracFone Wireless, a
subsidiary of America
Movil) beat all four major
carriers and got high
marks for value.

Military shift: The next battlefields could be tunnels


WASHINGTON (Foreign
Policy) For more than a
decade, the United States
has targeted insurgents
from the sky with increas-
ingly advanced drones,
launching air strikes in
Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan,
Yemen and other volatile
countries. But the practice
may be contributing to a
new trend: foreign militar-
ies and insurgents are using
tunnels and other under-
ground networks more and
more to hide and gain a
tactical advantage and
that increases the likeli-
hood that U.S. forces will
face them below ground in
the future.
The U.S. Army just issued


a warning about tunnel
warfare as part of a new
effort seeking high-tech
robotics, communications
gear and other equipment.
Army officials requested
industry help last week,
saying "the growing use of
tunnels and underground
facilities by military and
irregular forces to gain a
tactical advantage is be-
coming more sophisticated
and increasingly effective,
making the likelihood of
U.S Forces encountering
military-purposed subter-
ranean structures on future
battlefields high."
The Army did not iden-
tify any specific country in
which they expect tunnel


warfare will occur, but
said the Middle East is full
of ancient and modem
underground systems that
can be used by enemy
forces. Examples include
Syria, where rebels have
used them extensively; Iraq,
where they are rumored to
stretch for miles; and Egypt,
where the military flooded
many of them with sewage
earlier this year, before
President Mohammed
Morsi was removed from
power.
Tunnel networks stretch
well beyond the Middle
East, however. In southern
Afghanistan, Taliban
fighters have used them
to hide weapons and to


disappear after ambushing
U.S. forces. In South Korea,
military officials fear their
North Korean counterparts
have dug a series of deep
tunnels that will allow them
to launch a fierce invasion
of their U.S.-aligned neigh-
bor. And in Mexico, tunnels
have been dug underneath
the country's border with
the United States to smug-
gle in massive quantities of
cocaine and marijuana.
Historically, tunnel war-
fare also played a promi-
nent role inWorldWar II,
where U.S. forces fought
Japanese troops who were
deeply entrenched in bun-
kers connected by a series
of tunnels on Pacific islands


like Iwo Jima. U.S. troops
used flame throwers, small
arms and grenades to root
them out, but the Japanese
were frequently able to
sneak back into areas that
had been cleared through
tunnels the Americans did
not know existed.
Army officials said in
the notice to industry
that it needs not only
specialized equipment
for underground combat
operations, but to have
personnel available with
specialized training in it.
Some of the equipment
it says it needs for tunnel
warfare comes into play
in just about any combat
environment ballistic


shields, for example. Other
needs are specific to life
underground, however.
For example, the service is
interested in equipment
that can map out under-
ground environments, even
when a GPS signal is not
available, and radios that
work underground.
The Army also asked
for information about
breaching gear that can
cut or blow holes into new
walls, breathing devices for
when oxygen is scarce, and
gear that will allow soldiers
to see in the dark. They
could include light sources,
thermal imaging devices
or items that can create
light after being thrown.

FSU's Fisher


downplays


Texas rumors


By BRENDAN SONNONE
ORLANDO SENTINEL
TALLAHASSEE -
Florida State coach Jimbo
Fisher is widely consid-
ered a strong candidate
for the vacant coaching
position at Texas.
But whether it's Texas
or anywhere else, Fisher
said he doesn't plan on
addressing any coaching
rumors as his team
prepares for the BCS
National Championship
Game against Auburn
Jan. 6.
"I'm going to talk about
our team, that's all I'm
going to talk about. I
ain't getting into all the
rumors," Fisher said
following Wednesday's
practice. "It's unfair to
those teams and our
team. We're planning
here, getting ready for
a game, that's where I
plan on being, right here
getting ready for a game.
"That's my soul focus
and that is it."

gym unveiling


By DAWN KLEMISH
SUN CORRESPONDENT
NORTH PORT -The
grand opening of Imagine
School's long-awaited
home gymnasium will
have to wait until the new
year, athletic director
Rudi Banuelos said.
The inaugural game is
scheduled for Jan. 7 at
7 p.m,, when the Sharks
host district foe Cardinal
Mooney.
"There are just small
things we need to fix that
were not in the original
construction," he said.
"Some safety things, like
padding behind the walls
of the basket. But it's a
beautiful facility. It has
maple floors with our
insignia in the middle of
the floor. We can't wait

until everything is ready
to go."
The insignia almost
didn't happen: The school
didn't have the funds
to have it painted on
and was going to put
it off until Jose Dias of
Trident Surfacing stepped
forward to lend a hand.
"This man came to us
and said, 'If you don't do
it now, you'll never get
it done,'" Banuelos said.
"He came in and put it
on for us, and told us that
when we do the fundrais-
ing and get the money, we
can pay him then. We are
so grateful for that."


* AUTO RACING: NASCAR Sprint Cup Series


It's the season of


switching teams


ByJIM PELTZ
Los ANGELES TIMES
A new NASCAR season
is only a few weeks away
with some of the sport's
top drivers switching
teams in hopes of win-
ning a Sprint Cup title.
They include veterans
Kevin Harvick, Kurt Busch
and Ryan Newman, and
they'll start getting ready
for the season Jan. 9-10
when the series holds its
"preseason thunder" test
at Daytona International
Speedway.
That's in preparation
for the season-opening
race, the Daytona 500 on


Feb. 23, where the drivers
who changed teams will
get see the first result of
how their new marriages
are working out.
Harvick and Busch are
both moving to Stewart-
Haas Racing, the team
co-owned by three-time
Cup champion Tony
Stewart. That should
bolster Stewart-Haas'
effort to better challenge
powerhouse Hendrick
Motorsports, whose
Jimmie Johnson won a
sixth championship this
year.

Bucs' trio faces


uncertain future

TAMPA BAY TIMES
wo games.
That's what the
Bucs have left.
On the surface, they are
two meaningless games.
At St. Louis. At New
Orleans. Then the season
is over.
There are no playoff
berths on the line for
Tampa Bay. All they're
really playing for is draft
position.
Oh, and one more thing:
the futures of the three
most high-profile people
in the organization.
That would be general
manager Mark Dominik,


coach Greg Schiano
and quarterback Mike
Glennon.
How the Bucs fare over
the next two weeks likely
will decide whether one,
two, all three, or none
of them are back next
season.
A couple of wins and all
three probably will come
back. A couple of losses
and jobs will be lost. A
win and a loss and it's
anybody's guess.
It's all about
appearances.
Two victories would give
the Bucs a 6-10 record.
Not pretty, but you can

* GIRLS BASKETBALL NOTEBOOK



Lemon Bay senior




moving forward


Robertson

comes up big

for Pirates

By DAWN KLEMISH
SUN CORRESPONDENT
ENGLEWOOD -
Lemon Bay High School
guard/forward Brooke
Bedford is flourishing in
her new role this season.
The senior, who had
played guard for much of
her career, is now seeing
time at forward as well
and coach Mike Young
said Bedford is blossom-
ing under the basket.
"She has had some
really good practices, and
she played really well
against Charlotte (Nov.
26) at the end," he added.
"I think she's starting to
realize what she can do
defensively. She's getting
a lot of deflections, and is
playing several different
roles.
"She loves contact.
She's an intense kid and
she's embracing that (as a
forward) in the legal way."

Cashing in big: Port
Charlotte's Courtney Robertson has
been on a tear lately. The senior
forward is averaging a double-double
per game, and last week scored a
school-record 41 points in a win against
Ida Baker.
"It was a good (offensive)
rebounding game for me and once I got
the ball, I just went back up,"Robertson
said. "I didn't even know how many
points I had, I just felt good'."
On Tuesday night against DeSoto
County, Robertson scored a game-high
29 points with 13 rebounds despite

being hobbled by a sore right ankle as
the Pirates won, 68-55.

Reaching new heights:
Imagine School co-captain Amore'
Walton grew two inches this offseason
and because of that, coach Pete
Fernandez said the starting forward is
experiencing a breakout year.
With her newfound height, the
versatile Walton can play several
positions, which helps a Sharks squad
in its first year in FHSAA competition.
Imagine's roster is mainly composed
of sophomores and also employs a
few middle schoolers, and Walton, a


sophomore, has established herself as a
leader on the court and off.
"She has a great court sense and
always knows where the ball is going,"
Fernandez said. "She continues to be a
leading scorer for us'."

Don't miss these games:
Friday night is a double feature in
Venice, when the Lemon Bay boys and
girls basketball teams play at 6:30 and
8 p.m. ... Charlotte is playing in the
Seffner Christian Academy Tournament
that tips off Friday and runs through
Saturday.... Teams are then idle until
Dec. 27 due to the holiday break.

After surgery, Beckham



will miss 6-8 months


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
ST. PETERSBURG-
Tampa Bay Rays infielder
Tim Beckham is expected
to be sidelined six-to-eight
months after surgery
to repair the anterior
cruciate ligament in his
right knee.
The 23-year-old
shortstop/second
baseman, who made his
major league debut in
September, was injured
during an offseason
workout last week. Dr.
James Andrews performed
the surgery in Pensacola
on Tuesday.
Minor league pitcher
Ryne Stanek had surgery
to repair his right hip
labrum. He is expected to
return in mid-summer.
Beckham was the No. 1
pick in the 2008 amateur
draft. He hit .276 with four
homers and 51 RBIs at
Triple-A Durham before
appearing in five games
with the Rays last season.

McGehee agrees to $1.1
million deal with Marlins:
With the addition of third baseman
Casey McGehee, the Miami Marlins
have replaced half of their punchless
2013 lineup.
McGehee, a five-year major league
veteran who played in Japan last
season, agreed to a $1.1 million,
one-year contract. Miami earlier
acquired catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia,
first baseman Garrett Jones and second
baseman Rafael Furcal to shake up an
offense that ranked last in the majors in
runs and batting average.
"We needed to get more production
offensively,"president of baseball
operations Mike Hill said. "We still
have some work to do, but we're very
comfortable with the progress we've
made this offseason."
Miami designated 2008 first-round
pick Kyle Skipworth for assignment. The
catcher went hitless in three at-bats


SPRING TRAINING
COUNTDOWN



56
Days until Tampa Bay Rays
pitchers and catchers report for
spring training on Feb. 14 at
Charlotte Sports Park

during a brief stint with the Marlins in
his major league debut this year.
Miami third basemen totaled three
homers and 44 RBIs in 2013, worst in
the majors in both categories. McGehee
hit.292 with 28 homers in Japan last
season.
The Marlins will count on the
31-year-old McGehee, who has an
average of .257 in five major league
seasons. He played for the Pirates and
Yankees in 2012 and batted .217 with
nine homers in 114 games.

Braves acquire Doumit
from Twins: Looking for catching
depth after losing Brian McCann to free
agency, the Atlanta Braves acquired
Ryan Doumit from the Minnesota Twins
for left-hander Sean Gilmartin.
The 32-year-old Doumit could
share time with Evan Gattis, a rookie
last season who is McCann's projected
replacement as Atlanta's primary
starter.
Gilmartin, the 28th overall pick in
the 2011 amateur draft, was 3-8 with
a 5.74 ERA atTriple-AGwinnett last
season.

Indians acquire LHP
Outman: The Cleveland Indians
made another move to remodel their
bullpen, adding a pitcher with a name
seemingly suited for his role.
Cleveland acquired Josh Outman
from the Colorado Rockies for outfielder
Drew Stubbs. The left-handed Outman
is the newest member to Cleveland's
revamped bullpen, which has seen
All-Star closer Chris Perez released and
free agent right-handers Joe Smith and
Matt Albers sign elsewhere.


The 29-year-old Outman spent most
of last season with the Rockies, going
3-0 with a 4.33 ERA in 61 relief appear-
ances. Outman limited left-handed
hitters to a .198 average and had a 3.41
ERA in hitter-friendly Coors Field.

MLB average salary
up 5.4 percent to $3.39
million: The average salary in the
major leagues has risen 5.4 percent
to a record $3.39 million this year, its
steepest increase since 2006.
The NewYorkYankees had the
highest average for the 15th consecu-
tive season at a record $8.17 million,
breaking the mark of $7.66 million
when they won the World Series in
2009. The Los Angeles Dodgers were
second at $7.82 million, according to
the annual report released Wednesday
by the Major League Baseball Players
Association.
Houston's average of $549,603
was the lowest since the 1999 Kansas
City Royals at $534,460. The Miami
Marlins were 29th at $830,069, down
from $3.77 million in 2012, when they
ranked 10th.

Around the majors: A
Florida appeals court ruled that Major
League Baseball can take a deposition
from a cousin of Alex Rodriguez as part
of the sport's lawsuit involving banned
substances. ...
The San Diego Padres have agreed
with former Detroit Tigers closer
Joaquin Benoiton a $15.5 million,
two-year contract. In his first season
as Tigers closer, Benoit had 24 saves
in 26 chances. But in Game 2 of the
AL championship series, he allowed
a tying grand slam by Boston's David
Ortiz, a turning point in the series. ...
The Colorado Rockies reacquired
left-hander Franklin Morales from the
Boston Red Sox for versatile infielder
Jonathan Herrera ...
The San Diego Padres acquired
infielder Ryan Jackson from the
Houston Astros in exchange for
infielder-outfielder Jesus Guzman ...
The Seattle Mariners re-signed
oft-injured Franklin Gutierrez to a $1
million, one-year contract, adding
needed depth to their outfield.

* NFL:



Third d


No.lc

By GREG AUMAN
TAMPA BAY TIMES
TAMPA-The Bucs' 32
percent conversion rate
on third down is the worst
in the NFL, and offensive
coordinator Mike Sullivan
said Wednesday the
offense requires close to
perfection to move the
chains.
"Right now, the margin
for error is so small for us
if we have a less than ideal
play call, if we have less
than perfect execution,"
said Sullivan, whose unit
went 1-for-10 Sunday
against the 49ers, the
conversion coming on
third-and-1.
"When we're struggling,
it's tough to overcome a
dropped pass. It's tough
to overcome a sack or
a pressure. It's tough to
overcome a call where
there's anticipation of a
coverage and it's there and
... they just happen to
take away certain things
that you're expecting."
The Bucs are 6-for-35
(17.1 percent) on third
downs over their past
three games and haven't
converted a third down
of 5 yards or longer in the
second half of the past
six games, a span of 25
attempts.
On third downs re-
quiring 8 or more yards,
the Bucs have just one
conversion over their past
34 opportunities, a span
six games. Rookie QB
Mike Glennon said the key
is getting into third downs
of 4 yards or fewer.
"In the NFL, when you
get in third-and-long
situations, it's almost
impossible to get that first
down," Glennon said. "I

spin 6-10.
There were injuries. The
old quarterback slipped
off the rails and the new
quarterback is just a kid.
The team never quit. The
defense was decent. The
games were close. It would
mean the Bucs went 6-2
in the second half of the
season.
All of that could buy
everyone another season,
especially if you're willing
to throw a few assistants
and an offensive coordi-
nator under the bus.
But a 4-12 record would
be harder to sell. A 4-12
record looks bad. A 4-12
record is bad.
Forget injuries. Forget
how close the games were.
A 4-12 record is embar-
rassing. And the Bucs
owners hate to be embar-
rassed. It's hard to imagine
the Glazers standing pat
after a 4-12 season.
In other words, some-
one has to pay for 4-12.
The funny thing is, it's
probably a dumb idea
to base the future of the
franchise on the outcome
of these final two games. If
the Bucs win the last two
games by a hair, does that
mean they're that much
better than if they lose the
next two? Of course not.
Put it this way: If you
think Schiano has done a
lousy job and can't coach
a pee wee team and is
driving this franchise into
the ground, then a 24-23
victory on a last-second
50-yard field goal on
Sunday shouldn't change


that.
On the other hand, if
you think Schiano is a
future Bill Belichick then
you shouldn't can him
if the Bucs lose the next
two games on Hail Mary
passes.
Schiano's fate should
be determined by his
work over two years, not

think the biggest thing is
for us to stay on schedule;
to get in third and 4 or
less."
The Bucs allowed San
Francisco to convert 6
of 15 third downs (40
percent), including ones
needing 8, 12 and 15
yards.
Sullivan, as reported
by FoxSports.com,
expected to interview for
the coaching opening at
Army, his alma mater. He
declined to comment,
adding it would be inap-
propriate to talk about
potential jobs, "especially
given where we're at
offensively."

During the Dolphins'
three-game winning
streak this month,
Tannehill's passer rating is
103.2, significantly higher
than his career figure of
81.5. He has completed
65 percent of his passes in
December for 843 yards
with eight touchdown
passes and only two inter-
ceptions. He has thrown
for the go-ahead score in
the final minutes each of
the past two weeks to beat
Ben Roethlisberger and
Tom Brady.
As a result, the Dolphins
(8-6) could clinch the final
AFC wild-card berth as
soon as Sunday at Buffalo.
"Most of our success
has come from Ryan
continuing to develop
every single day," receiver
Mike Wallace said.
Despite an NFL-high
51 sacks, Tannehill hasn't
missed a snap this season.

QUICK HITS


COACH CALLS

PLAYERS'BUNCH OF

MAMA'S BOYS'

Southern Illinois coach
Barry Hinson said he re-
gretted singling out one of
his players in a postgame
diatribe that went viral.
And that's about it.
Hinson said at a news
conference in Carbondale,
Ill., on Wednesday that
he apologized to starting
point guard Marcus
Fillyaw for calling him
"absolutely awful" in a
73-65 loss at Murray State
on Tuesday night.
Hinson, however, said
he wouldn't take back call-
ing his players "uncoach-
able," "a bunch of mama's
boys" and comparing the
disciplining of his young
team to housebreaking a
puppy.
"If that ruffles your
feathers, or ruffles some-
body else's feathers, then
you know what, you're
going to have to deal with
it," Hinson said. 'And
here's the other thing, I'm
going to have to deal with
it."
Athletic director Mario
Moccia said he took no
disciplinary action against
Hinson....
It will be all Pitino all the time in the
college basketball season opener next
year. Rick Pitino's Louisville Cardinals
will face the Minnesota Golden
Gophers, coached by his son, Richard
Pitino, in the Armed Forces Classic on
Nov. 14. The game will be played in
Puerto Rico at the U.S. Coast Guard's Air
Station Borinquen....
North Carolina guard Leslie
McDonald has been cleared by the
NCAA to resume playing for the Tar
Heels. Team spokesman Steve Kirschner
said in a statement that McDonald
would return against Texas on
Wednesday. The NCAA said the imper-
missible benefits received by McDonald
from "numerous individuals"during this
spring and summer include the use of
luxury cars, payment of parking tickets,
a cellphone and lodging....
Dyron Nix, a former Southeastern
Conference scoring champion at
Tennessee, has died. He was 46.
Brandon Thornton, the vice president of
Herschel Thornton Mortuary, confirmed
that Nix died Sunday of natural causes
at his home in Stone Mountain, Ga.


TENNIS

Djokovic hires Becker as
coach: ANovak Djokovic is turning
to Boris Becker for help in 2014. The
second-ranked Serb said that Becker
will join his staff for next season as
head coach.
The 46-year-old Becker, a six-time
Grand Slam champion, will travel
with Djokovic and other coaches to
tournaments, including next month's
Australian Open....
Djokovic and Serena Williams are
the International Tennis Federation's
world champions for 2013. Djokovic
captured the men's award for the third
straight year, and Williams took the
honor for the fourth time. American
twins Bob and Mike Bryan were named
men's doubles world champions for the
10th time in 11 years, while Sara Errani
and Roberta Vinci of Italy took the
women's doubles award.


CYCLING

Olympic medalist tests
positive: Olympic bronze medalist
and three-time world time trial
champion Michael Rogers of Australia
has tested positive for clenbuterol
after racing in China. The International
Cycling Union said that Rogers is provi-
sionally suspended while his national
federation investigates the case.

Jagr scores No. 693 in
Devils' win: In Newark, NJ.,
Jaromir Jagr scored his 693rd career
goal, Reid Boucher netted his first in

the Ottawa Senators, 5-2....
Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman
Deryk Engelland was suspended for five
games without pay by the NHL for a

forward Justin Abdelkader.
The Minnesota Wild placed goalie
Josh Harding on injured reserve to
allow him to adjust the medication he

The Columbus Blue Jackets placed
defenseman Dalton Prouton injured

of an upper-body injury that will likely
sideline to miss two to three weeks.

DEFENDING CHAMPION:
Jimmie Johnson, who won his
sixth Sprint Cup Series
championship this past season


TEAMS

FROM PAGE 1
were announced over the
final two months of this
season. If you weren't
keeping tabs, here's an
overview:

KEVIN HARVICK
The 2007 Daytona 500 winner
capped a 12-year career with Richard
Childress Racing by finishing third in
this year's Sprint
Cup standings
in the No. 29
Chevrolet. Harvick,
38, will drive the
No. 4 Chevy at
Stewart-Haas and
his teammates will
be Stewart, Danica
Patrick and Busch.
The chemistry at Stewart-Haas will
be closely watched next year because
Stewart, Harvick and Busch all are
intense, often temperamental drivers.
Patrick, meanwhile, will be trying to
improve on her disappointing rookie
season in which she finished 27th in
points.

KURT BUSCH
The 2004 Cup champion moves
to Stewart-Haas where he'll
drive the No. 41
Chevrolet from
Furniture Row
Racing. Although
H Furniture Row is
only a one-car
team, Busch, 35,
l made the Chase
for the Cup title
playoff this year and finished 10th in
the standings.

RYAN NEWMAN
Despite qualifying for this year's
Chase and winning one of NASCAR's
marquee races, the Brickyard 400
at Indianapolis
Motor Speedway,
Stewart-Haas
opted not to
renew Newman's
contract.
U So Newman,
36, who has won
17 Cup races in his
career, including the Daytona 500 in
2008, moved to Childress where he'll
take over the No. 31 Chevy from the
departed Jeff Burton.

MARTIN TRUEXJR.
Truex, 33, takes over for Busch
in Furniture Row's No. 78 Chevrolet
after a scandal effectively forced Truex
out of his ride at
Michael Waltrip
Racing.
The scandal
~centered on MWR
team efforts to
manipulate the
i last race before the
Chase so that Truex
would earn a berth in the playoff.
Truex didn't make it after NASCAR
penalized him and the team. Then
Truex's sponsor, NAPA auto parts,
dropped its multimillion-dollar
sponsorship and MWR was forced to
cut back to two full-time cars instead
of three, with Truex the odd man out.
MWR still will have a third car next
year, the No. 66 Toyota, but it will be
entered in only a limited number of
Cup races.

JEFF BURTON
The 21 -time Cup winner opted to
leave Childress after this season and
Burton, 46, later announced he would


help test and race
the third MWR
car in its limited
schedule.
H 1 Burton's duties
initially also
include testing
ithe No. 55 Toyota
normally driven
by Brian Vickers, 30, who's on medical
leave until late-January with a
blood-clotting condition.

Jazz edge Magic





behind Burke's 30

Utah extends win streak against Orlando to six


By KYLE HIGHTOWER
ASSOCIATED PRESS
ORLANDO -Trey
Burke had a career-high
30 points and eight
assists, Gordon Hayward
added 15 points and the
Utah Jazz held off the
Orlando Magic 86-82 on
Wednesday night.
Orlando had a chance
to tie the game in the
closing seconds, but
Jameer Nelson's layup
rolled off the rim and
was rebounded by Utah
with just 3 seconds left.
Hayward then hit a pair
of free throws.
The Jazz snapped a
two-game losing streak
and extended their win
streak over the Magic to
six games.
The Magic lost for the
sixth time in seven home
games. They continue
their season-long
six-game homestand
Saturday against
Sacramento.
Nelson led Orlando

straight.
Down by one, the
Pacers saw their best
chance go awry when
George Hill turned the
ball over on a bad pass
with 14 seconds left. Allen
made two free throws
with 10.3 seconds re-
maining to put Miami up
by three, and that capped
a big comeback win for
the two-time defending
NBA champions.
Pacers center Roy
Hibbert got his fourth
foul early in the third,
and Indiana coach Frank
Vogel opted to leave him
in the game. The gamble
appeared to backfire
46 seconds later when
Hibbert picked up his
fifth with 8:34 remaining
in the quarter.

with 17 points. Nikola
Vucevic had 14 points
and 14 rebounds and
Tobias Harris finished
with 14 points and 10
boards, a season high
after he returned recently
from an ankle injury.
Harris was 10 for 31
in four games coming
into the day. He finished
a modest 5 for 14 from
the field against the Jazz,
but was a lot more active
that he had been in his
previous three games.
He got involved on
the offensive end early
on against the Jazz and

Hibbert went to the
bench but the Pacers
didn't miss a beat.
George made three free
throws after getting hit
beyond the arc by Mario
Chalmers to put Indiana
up 66-51 midway through
the third, and the Pacers'
lead was still 14 with 4:17
left in the period.
But Norris Cole's
3-pointer, Miami's first
in 10 tries to that point,
started what became a
13-4 Heat run and made
it a 76-71 game entering
the fourth. Nonetheless,
Indiana remained in
control, and when West
connected with 3:21 left,
the Pacers were up 92-85
and seemed well on their
way to closing things out.
And then the Heat -
for the first time all night
- put together a run.
The Heat scored the
next 10 points Bosh's
3-pointer, his first in 15


seemed a lot more com-
fortable, scoring six in the
first quarter.
Harris then slumped
down the stretch, like so
many of his teammates.
Orlando trailed by six
heading into the fourth
quarter, but rallied to a
76-69 lead with just under
eight minutes to play. But
Utah responded with a
9-0 spurt.

Texas upsets




Tar Heels


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -
Demarcus Holland scored
on a stickback of his
own free throw with 4.1
seconds left to help Texas
hold on and beat No. 14
North Carolina 86-83 on
Wednesday night.
Holland finished
with 15 points for the
Longhorns (10-1),
who survived a missed
3-pointer from UNC's
Marcus Paige on the final
play to earn their sixth
straight win.
Isaiah Taylor scored 16
points to lead Texas, while
Javan Felix added 12 -
including two key baskets
in the final 2 minutes to
answer a tying spurt from
the Tar Heels (7-3).
Texas shot 38 percent
after halftime and 40
percent for the game,
but dominated the
boards and scored 21
second-chance points
to beat the Tar Heels for
the sixth time in seven
meetings.
Paige scored 23 points
to lead UNC, which got
senior Leslie McDonald
back for the first time
after missing the first
nine games due to NCAA
eligibility issues.

No. 3 Ohio State 76,
Delaware 64: In Columbus, Ohio,
LaQuinton Ross scored 19 points,
including eight in a decisive 15-0 run,
to lead No. 3 Ohio State past Delaware
76-64 on Wednesday night.
Lenzelle Smith Jr. added 14 points,
Aaron Craft had 12, Amir Williams
had 11 points and 12 rebounds and
Amedeo Della Valle added 10 points
for the Buckeyes (11-0), who have
won every game by double figures.
Devon Saddler, still rounding
into shape after a seven-game
disciplinary suspension, had 17
points and Jarvis Threatt added 14
for the Blue Hens (5-6), who have
lost three straight.
It was a surprisingly cold shooting
night for the Buckeyes, who had
made at least 52 percent of their field
goal attempts in each of the last five
games to match the longest such
streak since 1991-92. They were 24 of
59 from the field (41 percent).

*NBA ROUNDUP



Love powers



Timberwolves


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
MINNEAPOLIS -Kevin
Love made an emphatic
case for the title of the
NBAs best power forward.
Love had 29 points,
15 rebounds and nine
assists to outshine
LaMarcus Aldridge in the
Minnesota Timberwolves'
120-109 victory over the
Portland Trail Blazers on
Wednesday night.
Nikola Pekovic had 30
points and nine rebounds
and Kevin Martin scored
22 for the Timberwolves,
who led by 32 in the
second quarter and held
off a charge in the second
half from the Blazers.
Damian Lillard had 36
points, six assists and six
rebounds and Aldridge
had 15 points and 14
boards for the weary Trail
Blazers, who lost for the
first time in six games. It
was just their fifth loss of
the season in 27 games
and came at the end of a
four-game road trip.
The Blazers have been
the most surprising
team of the season, and
they stormed into Target
Center fresh off two
straight heart-pounding
victories on last-second
shots by Lillard that gave
them the best record in
the NBA. But playing their


fourth road game in five
nights, their legs were
heavy and their shots were
shaky.

Hawks 124, Kings 107:
In Atlanta, Kyle Korver made seven
consecutive 3-point attempts on
his way to a season-high 28 points.
Al Horford added 25 points and 10
rebounds for the Hawks, who have
won two straight and five of seven. Jeff
Teague finished with 18 points and tied
a career high with 15 assists.

Pistons 107, Celtics 106:
In Boston, Brandon Jennings scored 28
points, making a key 3-pointer with 46.7
seconds left, and matched his season
high with 14 assists. Andre Drummond
scored 14 points with 16 rebounds and
Josh Smith added 20 points for the
Pistons, who won for the seventh time
in 11 games.

Wizards 113, Nets 107:
In NewYork, John Wall scored 21
points and made two big defensive
plays against Deron Williams down
the stretch. Nene added 17 points in
his return from injury for the Wizards,
who completed a New York sweep after
a victory over the Knicks on Monday
following a four-game losing streak.

Bobcats 104, Raptors
102, OT: Kemba Walker hit a
buzzer-beating jump shot in overtime
and Charlotte snapped a three-game
losing streak in Toronto. Walker had 29
points and Al Jefferson had 24 points
and 11 rebounds as the Bobcats won
their second straight.

Low down, dirty shame


The bad apple spoils the bunch.
Once in a while you hear of a Yankee coming
down to Charlotte Harbor and unknowingly
keeping an illegal fish. Let's say that Wisconsin
Willy goes out, catches a snook this week and
keeps it for dinner. Sure, it's a shame, and Willy


should have known better. He should have
taken the time to get to know Florida's fishing
laws.
But once in a while you hear of something
much worse. That was the case this past week.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation


Commission is seeking the public's help in
tracking down somebody much worse than
Wisconsin Willy. Earlier this month, more than
400 pounds of roe mullet, spotted seatrout,
pompano, flounder, Spanish mackerel and
SHAME 128

ii you nave a comment or question ior
Waterline editor Lee Andersen, email
him at Editor@WaterLienWeekly.com.
LEE:
I am in disagreement with your planned trout
tournament. Because there are an abundance
of trout now, does not mean that will be the
case in the future. Killing these fish intention-
ally is wrong. It is fine and noble to want to
help those less fortunate, this is not the way.
Those who organized the event have their
hearts pointed in the right direction, but their
heads are in the wrong direction.
-John Rappold, Placida
LEE:
I went out fishing and tried to fish the ICW by
Buck Creek, just north of the ferry crossing to
Palm Island. There were 25 to 30 boats running
in the flats with 2 to 3 people per boat. They
were using throw nets. Was there a tournament
or competition of some sort going on? What
were they netting? I also saw the same type of
boats at Stump Pass. I talked to another boater
that saw the same thing in the ICW south of the
ferry crossing. My issue is they were running
in the flats at above wake speeds. I sat by two
manatees for a while hoping they would not
get hit. Whoever the organizer is needs to have
someone enforce the out of ICW slow zone. It
also made it impossible to fish with these guys
running all overthe area.

LEE:
The Nov. 28 article, "Red Tide Killing Fish in the
Harbor" in the Waterline by Josh Olive is a good
description of the red tide problem along the
Gulf beaches and the Intercoastal Waterway. I
must challenge the comments regarding lack of
water sampling in the Charlotte Harbor estuary.
His statement that no one is looking or sam-
pling for red tide in the Charlotte Harbor area is
incorrect. My wife and I are volunteers who have
been sampling water quality at Ponce Inlet for
the last three years. This sampling site is part of
a network of 15 sites continuously sampled for
nearly 20 years, and sponsored by the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection,
Charlotte Harbor Aquatic Preserve located on
12305 Burnt Store Road. We sample at dawn
on the first Monday of each month with on-site
analyses and by collecting samples for subse-
quent laboratory analyses. The on-site sampling
determines real-time water quality parameters
such as salinity, pH, dissolved oxygen, color and
clarity. Our Oct. 7 water samples collected at
Ponce Inlet tested positive for the algae species
that can cause fish and shellfish kills. The results
should have been an indicator of problems to
come. Both Mr. McRae of FWRI and Mr. Olive
need to be acquainted with the network of


available resources that are keeping watch on
Charlotte Harbor estuary. FDEP and CHAP should
be complimented for their excellent work in
sponsoring the sampling program, providing
the instrumentation and coordinating the
volunteers who operate the system.

I just wanted to let you know how much I
enjoy Tom Johnson's articles. I was really sur-
prised last week when you printed one that
I have not read. As a huge fan of his writing,
this was a pleasant surprise and as usual
a couple of "laugh out loud" lines were in
there. His talent was tremendous, his passing
sad, but I am glad to see the reruns! Thanks.

We had just finished a kayak
outing and were famished. I
mean we were hungry. Small
portions would not do the trick.
We had heard of a place on
the water in Englewood called
Howards, and since we were in
the area, we gave it a go. We
were glad we did.
Fortunately, Howards stays
open until 9 p.m. each niuht.

Trout are roaming in San

the grass flats. They tend to
ambush bait on the outside
of the holes. Toss a lure over
the hole and catch one.

HURRICANE SEASON THAT WASN'T
There are well-known meteorologists who
each spring produce forecasts of the intensity
of the upcoming hurricane season. Almost
all of this year's pre-season forecasts foretold
that 2013 was going to be an especially
active tropical season and the Atlantic Basin
was predicted to have a higher than average
number of named storms, a higher than
average number of hurricanes and a higher
than average number of major storms. The
forecasters consider sea water temperatures,
jet stream patterns, El Nino and a number of
other environmental factors when producing
their predictions. Well, it was proved once
again in 2013 that crafting such predictions
accurately is still beyond human ability.
By mid-summer, when the early part of
hurricane season was (thankfully) a dud,
the forecasters were scrambling to revise
their numbers. (This always seems to me like
changing your Super Bowl pool numbers at
halftime.) Towards the end of the season
when it was clear that 2013 was going to end
up as mostly a non-event, the forecasters
were scrambling to blame"dry air aloft"and
"African dust clouds.":' Moral of the story: Pay
attention to the forecasts, but take them
with a grain of salt.


:As W W o ^*vr -
RAINY SEASON THAT WAS
For the first time in many years the
southern portion of the Florida peninsula
experienced a rainy summer. Summer
2013 was not really excessively rainy
when compared to historical records, but
it was wetter than average. Since the
past several years have mostly produced
below-average summer rainfall, with some
of those years verging on drought condi-
tions, this was the first experience with a
wet summer for many Florida newcomers.
When the rain-swollen rivers dumped tons
of dark-stained fresh water into Charlotte
Harbor, there was a dramatic change in
the color of the inshore waters that star-
tled many people, but in reality, there was
nothing unusual about the months-long
bout of tea-colored water. Much atten-
tion was given to the Lake Okeechobee
discharges via the Caloosahatchee River.
These discharges did impact Estero Bay,
San Carlos Bay and the southern portion
of Pine Island Sound, but the dark water
in the largest portion of Charlotte Harbor
was mostly a result of rainfall-induced
flow in the Peace River and the Myakka
River and is perfectly normal during a wet
summer.


'/. -' .

RED TIDE SEASON THAT WASN'T (SO FAR)
The fish-killing algae blooms known as
red tide are unpopular. Fishermen don't like
seeing their desired catches lying dead on
the beach. Beachfront business owners don't
like seeing their sales suffer when the beach
is stinky. Waterfront real estate owners don't
like seeing their property values affected.
Nobody likes seeing dead manatees, birds
and other creatures that can succumb to red
tide. Unfortunately, much like hurricanes,
red tide has thus far proven impossible to
predict. There are many people who believe
that red tide is stimulated by manmade
nutrient runoff, and that red tides are more
likely to flourish after periods of heavy rain.
When a moderate bout of red tide began to
flare up along the coast this fall, following
soon after such a rainy summer, proponents
of this theory blamed the summer's rains,
but the red tides (thankfully) fizzled after
only limited fish kills. The scientists who
study red tide have looked at decades of data
and have not been able to ascertain any link
between rainfall and red tide, and unless red
tide recurs along the Southwest Florida coast
in the coming months, 2013 will probably
be added to the list of years that seem to
disprove the red tide/rainfall correlation.


SNOOK SEASON THAT WAS
In September, snook season opened for
the first time in more than three years.
As usually seems the case with fishing
topics, different fishermen had different
opinions about snook. There was debate
about the wisdom of opening the season,
and, once the season was open, about
the quality of the snook fishing. Some
anglers reported catching lots of snook,
while some reported skimpy catches. After
fishing through the three month open
season, most fishermen now seem to
agree, however, that there are more larger
snook in Charlotte Harbor than prior to the
closure. This is good news because most of
these large fish are female spawners and
are critical to the continued health of the
snook stock.
Let's go fishing!

"Catching Carol" is still at it.
Carol is one of the co-owners along with
her husband Frank of Fishin' Frank's that
was known as BJ's Bait at that time. There were
a couple dozen ready rigs, a few packages of
hooks, floats and a single bait tank. Carol is the
reason the shop has grown to what it is today.
When people learned that a woman owned
the joint and knew how to fish the place
seemed to get a lot more popular. Men had
absolutely no problem or issues with bringing
in their wives, girlfriends or children. When
people came into the store it was different
than the usual "good ol' boys" bait stores.
When people came in the store, they were
noticed. Carol and I actually paid attention to
our customers, and it was a blast. Carol made
the store a success. I owe it all to her.
Now, back to how"Catching Carol"got her
name.
Carol and I were fishing with Capt. Ralph
Allen no, he wasn't writing for WaterLine
just yet. We were fishing in the Gulf. There
were a few people with us, but I can't exactly
remember all of them cut me some slack,
it was a long time ago. Carol was schooling us.
She was catching grouper, snapper, grunts,
squirrelfish and just about everything you
could imagine. Then, she broke off her line, so I
stepped in and tied on a new hook.
"Watch him, he'll probably put on a rubber
hook;'" Ralph said.
The hook I tied on did have a normal bend
in it, but had no point or barb. I tried it, but
nothing. Then I handed it over to Carol, and she
started catching fish right where she left off.


"You may be Fishin' Frank, but she's darn
sure Catchin' Carol, Ralph says.
Ralph couldn't have said it any better.
Carol still fares better than most whenever
she goes fishing. Recently, she hooked a
sawfish. These creatures are beautiful, and it
was her first.
"You're never too old to catch a different
species of fish;' Carol says.
Carol and I have been fishing together
in fresh and salt water since the 1950s. She
always catches more than me each time we go
out, but I don't mind she's"Catching Carol.":'

Some people think hunting is about killing
animals. For most hunters, it's really not. What
it's about is being self-sufficient, spending
time in the woods, and honoring tradition.
People who don't get that are usually
people who don't have those kinds of tradi-
tions. It's like anything else: If you grew up
hunting, you'll probably enjoy it and want to
pass that tradition on. Very few people just up
and decide to give hunting a try most of
the time, you're born into it or you're not.
It was easy for me to become a hunter,
because everyone in my family on both my
parents'sides were hunters. But it was really my
maternal grandfather and my dad who were
my role models. My grandfather bought me my
first hunting rifle (a .22 Magnum Chipmunk) the
day I was born. I didn't get to shoot it until a few
years later, though. The first time I went to my
dad's hunting camp, I rode in a car seat on the
buggy. How could I not grow up to be a hunter?
For me, hunting is as natural as breathing.
I can't imagine my life without hunting -
really, I can't. But that's how it is when you
do something your whole life. I was still in
elementary school when I harvested my first
pig, and I was hunting squirrels and rabbits


long before that. My first deer came when I
was 16 years old. It's hard for me to under-
stand people who don't hunt. I guess it's
probably just as hard for them to understand
me and other hunters.
A lot of people have a mental picture of
hunters as drunken rednecks running around
the woods with guns, shooting anything that
moves, like crazed real-life Elmer Fudds. I'll
admit there are a few guys out there who fit
that stereotype, but they're in the minority.
And trust me on this real hunters can't
stand those guys. They make us look bad. In the
hunting community, guys like that are pariahs.
The rest of us shun and shame them because
we know they're worse for the sport than any
anti-gun or animal rights organization.
Hunting isn't for everyone. I have a buddy
who grew up hunting but chose to give it up
when he got older. And I've been with some
guys in the woods who shot something and
realized that it wasn't quite what they were
expecting. I get that, and it's OK. But what I
have a problem with is someone who wants
to tell me that hunting is wrong and I can't
do it any more.
The way I look at it, God put animals here on


this earth to provide food for us. A lot of people
would say that's backward thinking, maybe even
a Stone Age mentality, but that's how I see it.
That doesn't mean I look down on them, or hold
any animosity toward them. I respect them -
there's not much more beautiful and majestic
than a deer in the woods. But that deer is not
something to worship; it's venison waiting to be
bacon-wrapped and grilled.
Animals kill each other all the time. It's
the natural order of things. We need to look
at animals as they are, not as we think they
might be. A deer doesn't mourn when another
deer dies. They don't have emotions, at least
not to that level. Yes, they do form a certain
kind of attachment to other individuals, but it's
not like the friendships or relationships that
people have. Life in the wild is short all an
animal can do is try to breed before something
eats it. In that sort of environment, emotional
attachments would simply never work.
Most of the time when I hunt, I don't kill
anything but time. To me, it's more about the
actual hunting than the killing. It's a chess
game with Mother Nature, trying to get into
the animal's head, figuring out its next moves,
trying to get a step or two ahead. Most of


the time, I get checkmated. But I'm OK with
that, because just being out in a tree stand or
walking through the wilderness is therapeutic
for me. Actually harvesting an animal just
means I have dinner in addition to getting my
head screwed on straight.
Most of my best childhood memories are of
hunting or fishing with family. I don't know
where I would be without that it kept me
grounded. I don't know if I'll ever have a son or
daughter of my own, but if I do, I'll definitely
pass those traditions along. It's just like
anything else if it's an important part of
you, you want to be sure it continues. Hunting
has been such an important part of my life, I
don't think I could raise a kid any other way.

Christmas is a wonderful opportunity to
share time with your family on our beautiful
waters. It's such a special time to be alive
and sharing with friends old and new.
We are so blessed to enjoy our mild
climate. Yes, we do have to work harder
to earn enough to keep the bills paid, but
at least we don't have to shovel snow for
months! Of course, lots of folks want to live
here our weather has been as much as 70
degrees warmer than up north. Florida is
becoming huge; we have the fourth largest
population in the nation and are going to
beat New York for third very soon. With the
increase in people, there are challenges we
face: Habitat protection, pollution, drinking
water, infrastructure, housing. Personally,
I've meet many wonderful folks through my
charters and other encounters. Most of our
neighbors are happy people, but some of the
special ones can be challenging espe-
cially if you are slightly opinionated like me.
I do wear my thoughts on my shirtsleeves.
I criticize others and welcome constructive
criticism; it can help us all learn and grow.
I do occasionally need to eat a little crow;
it's not tasty but it's the right thing to do. I
was questioned about some of my statements
last week at the fish house, and I'm glad it
was brought to my attention. I don't dislike
other fishermen just because they don't come
from here. I'm from up north (well, St. Pete).
And sometimes I myself travel to fish. When
I'm tired and on deadline, I sometimes don't
reread as carefully as I could to be sure what
I write reflects my feelings clearly. The fact
is (and it took some thought to understand
this), I just don't like jerks. This is not so
different than the tarpon jig situation. I really
don't care how you want to fish, provided you
fish in a way that allows others to fish how
they choose. We do occasionally step on each
other's toes by accident, but we can't use that
excuse every day! We can get along fine as
long as everyone can fish smiling.
I talked with a couple of young men
fishing from Lake Okeechobee last week at
the fish house (the temporary fish house
at the Placida fishing village). These were
hard-working freshwater fishing folks and
their families depend on their catch just like
ours. They needed some advice and I did
try to help. What I told them applies to all
fishing and hunting: Animals don't sit still
and wait to get harvested. Dumb animals
get eaten and smart ones keep growing
smarter. I'm not saying to overthink fish -
just look close, listen closer and slow down.
We found a nice bunch offish sitting in a


spot that we watched five boats race right
past. Observe the animals' patterns and eat
better. My hunting trip definitely helped my
fishing intuition.
It's challenging to outsmart and intercept
fish while staying out of the way of other
fishermen and without spending more
than we take in on expenses. Fuel, oil, food,
repairs and net costs have all gone crazy.
I respect anyone that can legally support
themselves fishing. Don't ask someone
where they caught their fish. They usually
won't share the truth anyway if it's a favorite
spot. But more important, fish don't usually
sit and wait for us to return to catch them.
I'm willing to help you if you don't hurt me
with the help I offer seems fair to me.
Other than my favorite fishing holes, what
sort of information would you like from me?
Fishing is such a special way to live.
You have to mesh with Mother Nature to
survive. If you charter, your job is to share
the fun, our waters, and catch fish. If you
commercial fish, it's catch fish or spend
money to work! Commercial fishermen
and guides make a living on the water, but
they have no more rights to fish than you
do. Just remember that this is their income
and the way they feed their families. We
don't need to be jerks mutual respect
is the best way for us all achieve our goals
fishing. Please consider the other person's
perspective if you can. I'm not always proud
of how I react to situations, but I am willing
to listen and consider your point of view.
I'll even let you all know I'm sorry if I'm
wrong. The way our system is, everyone can
come fish here. I just get frustrated when
their style of fishing gets in the way of my
catching. I'm not the best fisherman around,
but I do know what works for me. Stealth
helps me catch more fish and deer. Slow and
easy is what works for me.
Thank you for sharing your time with
us, and enjoy the very merriest Christmas
you've ever had. Our time is precious, so
don't let all the little stuff drag you down.
Life has many ways to teach us, and when
we stop learning we don't grow anymore.
I'm pushing forward with my own education
and hope to carry many of you with me. God
bless us all and Merry Christmas.

Months ahead, the planning committee
meets to create the Venice Area Birding Asso-
ciation schedule for the year. An interesting
and fun trip is the one to Bunche Beach and
J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on
Sanibel Island. Don Rippeon and I have led this
trip for quite a few years now. We have to be
very careful and get the low tides figured out
for Bunche, and also for Ding. It's important
because the shorebirds will be feeding at low
tide and they will not be present when the
tide is high. So, with that in mind, eleven VABA
members met at Bunche Beach to begin our
fabulous day of birding.
The morning was a beautiful sunny morning
with a nice breeze off the Gulf of Mexico. We all
had great anticipation and we were eager to
see what birds were going to present them-
selves to us this day. Tom Duch, our shorebird
expert, was in the lead as we started the hike
north on the beach toward the sand bars.
Immediately Deb Johnson, our young eagle
eye, spotted a reddish egret flying overhead.
Hundreds of peeps and black skimmers were
feeding out on the sand bar.
We made our way out onto the flats,
squishing through the muck. We had three
birding scopes set up, so we didn't miss a
thing. Every few seconds, excitement would
flare due to another good sighting. The best at
Bunche were black skimmers and there was a
huge raft of them taking off and landing. What
a great sight to see. These are very handsome
birds. We sighted least sandpipers, semi-pal-
mated sandpipers, western sandpipers,
black-bellied plovers, Wilson's plovers, ruddy
turnstones, willets, piping plovers, marbled
godwit, semi-palmated plovers, dunlin, and of
course, pelicans.
We had to judge our time well at Bunche
because we had to be at Ding Darling a little
before lunchtime. This was low tide at Ding
Darling. We all scurried off the beach after

is a small
wading bird.


about an hour and headed to Schnappers hot
dog stand for a quick lunch. Some bought and
some brought. We always stop at Schnappers,
as it's convenient and quick and accommodates
both needs of buy and bring. I happen to love
their charred dogs and boardwalk-type fries.
This is a rare gourmet treat for me.
After some conversation about Bunche
Beach and after eating our lunch, we hopped
back into our car caravan and took off for
Ding Darling. Jay Norwood Darling was born
in Norwood, Mich., in 1876. He won a Pulitzer
Prize as an editorial cartoonist. Theodore
Roosevelt appointed "Ding" Darling director of
the U.S. Biological Survey, which was the fore-
runner of the Department of Fish and Wildlife
Service. In addition, he initiated the National
Duck Stamp Program. For more information on
J.N. Ding Darling, go to Fws.Gov/DingDarling.
We began our slow car crawl through the
refuge, stopping at every body of water to


check out the wildlife that was present. At the
very first stop, we sighted a yellow-crowned
night heron. Later on the drive, we spotted
an immature yellow-crowned night heron.
The next stop brought to view a favorite
sighting among many birders the roseate
spoonbills. We also spotted a great blue heron,
belted kingfisher and osprey were seen and
heard along the entire trail. Great egrets were
plentiful, and we also sighted tri-color heron,
little blue heron, snowy egrets and white ibis.
As we slowly drove along, we constantly
looked into the canals alongside the road for
perched birds camouflaged in the mangroves.
Due to the low tide, we were gifted with
a plethora of shorebirds. We didn't know
where to look first. We had good sightings of
hundreds of dunlin, red knots, white pelican,
spotted sandpipers, willets, mottled ducks,
laughing gulls, pied billed grebes, semi-pal-
mated plovers, marbled godwit, least sand-


pipers, lesser yellowlegs and more.
A magnificent frigate bird was sighted
and my friend Ron Salisbury had to remind
me of our birding trip to Mexico earlier this
year. Several of us were enjoying birding off
shore at San Bias, Mexico, in a small boat
when we were bombarded by a huge flock of
magnificent frigate birds. One of these huge
birds decided to decorate my head. Ron, of
course, thought this to be hysterical. It was
pretty funny and I really didn't even get upset
Because we were in Mexico! I just rinsed it out
with some sea water.
We had a great day at Ding Darling, as did
the fishermen I was talking to. They were
catching some nice large fish, and they all
seemed to be keepers. While I was speaking
with one of the men, he pulled in a sheeps-
head on his line.
We were coming to the final area of Ding
Darling, and several of the group in Claudette's
vehicle requested a stop at an ice cream stand
on our way home. A few others headed out to
the Sanibel lighthouse trail to track down a
report of a mangrove cuckoo sighting. Unfortu-
nately, they didn't locate it. The rest of us sat in
the shade savoring our ice cream cones.
Finally, it was time to head home. As we
exited lovely Sanibel, we spotted a beautiful
red-shouldered hawk, and as we crossed the
Caloosahatchee River, we spotted another
magnificent frigate bird soaring high over
the water. This was a fabulous day of birding
and camaraderie with our wonderful VABA
friends.

As a fishing charter captain, my main goal is
to get you, the consumer, to want, and to buy,
my product. What I'm peddling is basically the
same thing that every other captain out there
is selling not so much fish, but the chance
to catch fish. So why, with hundreds of charter
captains in Southwest Florida, would you pick
me? I'm glad you asked.
Now, in order to be a U.S. Coast Guard-li-
censed captain, one must log a ton of hours,
on an actual boat, out on some sort of large
body of fresh or salty water. One must also
take a USCG-approved training course and
pass the Coast Guard's written test. Doing
this gives the person the right to put the
title Capt. in front of your name. But here's a
heads-up, guys just because someone is a
captain doesn't mean they know how to catch
fish. They do not teach fishing, of any kind, in
captain school. True fishing charter captains
have spent a hefty portion of their lives on the
water learning how to target and catch their
chosen species.
I've done that, but then again so have Capt.
Mark Bennett, Capt. Josh Greer, Capt. Eddie
Potter and many of our other local charter
guides. If every charter guide out there does
the same thing, what sets me apart? Well,
I offer people a chance to catch a fish of a
lifetime. Explaining precisely what that means
is a little harder.
Quite a few years back and had a Minne-
sota lady named Trudy book a shark-fishing
trip with me. She said she found my ad in an
outdoor publication and knew I was the right
guide for her. Her trip was only four hours,
but what a great half-day trip it turned out
to be. She caught only one shark, a 60-pound
blacktip, but at the ripe young age of 78 that
was all she could handle, and it was even
more fun then she had dreamed. She told
me she came out of retirement and worked
for tips at her girlfriends'diner just to pay for
the trip. The waitresses thought her dream of
catching a shark was so cool they started a tip
jar of their own and surprised her with it just
before she flew down. It was enough to pay
for her fishing trip. Her husband thanked me
after the trip and let me know that I was off
her bucket list and onto her Christmas mailing
list. The last Christmas card I received from
her was about three years ago. It came with a
note from the nursing staff at the convalescent
home she was living at. They informed me of
her passing and that the picture of her shark,


along with the jaw I mounted for her, would
be displayed on a plaque at the nurses'station
in remembrance of her.
Just a couple of years ago, I had a young
lady call me from New York City and book a
tarpon trip for her and her parents. She made
it clear the trip was for her dad, and that he
had been dreaming about catching a tarpon
his whole life. She set the trip up with accom-
modations at Boca Grande's Innlet on the
Waterfront and paid for everything in full. On
the day of their trip, I picked them up at the
Innlet docks and headed out to Boca Grande
Pass. On the first drift, the young lady hooked
up a nice tarpon and fought it for about five
minutes before it released itself. She handed
me the rod and informed me that another
tarpon was too much for her to handle. She
said she'd much rather catch mackerel and
jacks and leave the tarpon fishing to her
dad. She ended up catching a 15-pound jack
crevalle and her dad landed two tarpon, with
one of them going somewhere around 175
pounds. Both agreed they had caught their
own fish of a lifetime. This trip happened to
be on her 18th birthday. When Dad tried to
pay me for their day of fishing, I informed
him that his daughter had taken care of the
trip when she booked it. The daughter then
wrapped her arms around her dad's neck and,
with tears in her eyes and a tremble in her
voice, thanked him for the kidney he donated
to her 15 years ago to the day.
So, what is a fish of a lifetime? It's a jack,
tarpon, shark, snook, ladyfish, blowfish or any
of the thousands of other fish this planet has to
offer. If you or a loved one have been dreaming
of catching a particular fish, book a trip with a
guide and go out and make a memory that will
last forever. I know there are other guides who
can help you with that, but I can speak only for
myself when I say it's always my goal to guide
my clients to their fish of a lifetime.
Merry Christmas, everyone, and please have
a safe, happy and prosperous NewYear!

known as lunkers or"hawgs") is to use a large
native golden shiner under a float. Good lures
include topwater and diving plugs, spinner-
baits and the ubiquitous plastic worms. Many
large bass are taken at night.
NOTES: Although saltwater fishing has
become more popular, bass were Florida's
original claim to fishing fame. Florida-strain
_. largemouths are stocked

These warmer temperatures may make the
bass fishing a little tougher for the month
of December. One thing it may do is push
the spawn back a little later than normal
this spring, but that depends on how long
this unseasonably warmer weather lingers
around.
By now, we generally see much cooler
water temperatures than what we are
seeing now. Normally, being from Wisconsin
and seeing all the cold I care to ever live in
again, I would like to see temperatures in
the 80s. However, in order to get the bass on
their normal pattern, I would like to see the
temperatures drop a little bit and stay to cool
down the water. I love to sight-fish, so that
late winter and early springtime is a time
that I really enjoy to fish and hunt for bass in
the shallow water.
Right now, I would have to imagine the
bass are hanging out on those outside edges
waiting for the water to get to a point that
forces them to move shallow. For now, with


the steadiness of the warmer temperatures,
bass should be able to be caught by working
deeper edges that are close to shallow water.
This is the time of year for them to feed and
get ready for the spawn. Any location that
bass can find an easy meal is the place to
look.
If you're a really good location caster, you
may want to try running a lipless crank bait
parallel with the edges of the grass. Find
an outside grassline that has a few jutting
edges, position the boat at one end of the
grass line and slowly troll the length of the
line. Cast the lipless crank bait parallel to the
grass and keep the bait as close to the edge
as possible. That noisy little bait will pull the
bass to the edge and get them to bite. Once
you catch the first bass, back off the grassline
and start casting a worm to that same area
and work it thoroughly to see if the bass you
caught has any friends in the area.
Be careful that when you do get a strike
on that lipless crank bait that you don't allow


the bass to take you back into the grass and
get the remainder of the treble hooks caught
up in the grass. You may find it difficult to
get your bait back, much less keep the fish on
the hook. Always try to lay your rod tip away
from the grassline once you get a strike. You
want to encourage that bass to run away
from the grass to keep from hanging you up
in it.
The one thing you have to do is keep
moving. Bass this time of year, and in these
conditions, may be more willing to move
around and look for the best food source, or
the most abundant food source. If you are
not having much luck in the area you are in,
move. I try to keep moving with the trolling
motor continually until I land a few bass,
then I work that area thoroughly until I know
there are no more there to be caught.
But until the weather starts to dip, enjoy
these great sunny warm weekends we've
been having. Get out on the boat, do a little
fishing and test your skills during a time of


year that can be difficult for some anglers.
Let's face it, it's not always easy to locate
these little green swimmers, but movement
and diligence will pay off for you if you get
out and get some fishing in.
I know time is tight during the
Christmas season. Lord knows I have my
fair share of difficulty getting on the water
as well with all the honey-do's I have this
time of year. But the tree is up, it's deco-
rated and the house looks good. All I need
to do is some shopping and pray the warm
weather holds out. If so, my plan is to be
on the water a few times before Christmas.
How else can I whine to my wife about
what "we" need on the boat, and still get
it under the tree this year?

The burning questions lately have revolved
around sheepshead baits. So I'll do my best to
answer them. Disclaimer: I'm not giving away
my"secret" spots. You'll have to find your own!
WHERE CAN I FIND FIDDLER CRABS,
AND HOW DO I CATCH THEM?
First off, good luck. Fiddlers are not the
easiest critters to locate in numbers high
enough to adequately collect them for bait.
Especially without a boat. And when folks
know of these spots, they don't generally
want to share. I can't blame them. Here's what
I can tell you: Around Charlotte Harbor, seek
out sandy areas near the shoreline that are
completely exposed at low tide. Nearby cover
such as grass or mangroves add to the element
of a good fiddler spot.
These crabs hunker down in their holes on
high tide and run amok on low tide, so this is
when you want to look for them. When seeking
good terrain, look for the telltale burrows
fiddlers make an abundance of them in one
spot means you're on the right track.
When you find an army of fiddlers, you have
a couple options for harvesting them. The
first one is the most fun, but probably not the
most efficient: Bum rush them. Fiddlers tend
to group together when they are hundreds
strong, so if you come up on them quickly you
can just start picking them off by the handful
or one by one and putting them in a bucket.
Try to herd them away from their holes. Do
your homework first and scout the area before
you attack.
Another option is to throw a fine-mesh cast-
nest on a colony of crabs. This is much easier
and the yield is way higher. It's just not as fun.
One throw and you've got bait all day.
The best way to find your own fiddler
grounds is to go exploring and have some fun
with it.
If you're lazy, just head to the bait shop and
hope they have fiddlers in stock.
WHERE CAN I FIND MUD CRABS,
AND HOW DO I CATCH THEM?
Mud crabs are easier to find than fiddlers,
don't run as fast and, in my opinion, are a
much better bait anyway. Mud crabs can be
found under rocks and other debris when the
tide is out. The trick is to find a rocky area of
shoreline that's easily accessible. Once there,
just start flipping over rocks and looking for
crabs. Generally speaking, the size of the ones
that I keep are a dime at the smallest and a
fifty-cent piece at the biggest. You can keep
the bigger ones and cut them into pieces, but
it's not as effective. Make sure you wear a pair
of leather work gloves or you'll tear your hands


another reason I love using them. Even though
not that many folks like using barnacles, they
are probably the best sheepshead bait out
there along with mud crabs. They may even
beat mud crabs.
Until next time, hook'em up and fight'em


ttl(IIUJI^IIb




up flipping over the rocks, which tend to be
encrusted by oysters and barnacles.
One thing you have to be careful about
when you're harvesting mud crabs is to make
sure you're not accidentally harvesting stone
crabs. Stone crabs are a highly-regulated
species and if you get caught with them it's
not gonna be pretty. So learn the difference.
Here are two tips: First, most of the crabs
along the right shoreline as you're walking onto
the Placida pier are stone crabs. Leave them be.
Second, mud crabs are generally a light shade
of brown with the tips of their claws either
white or brown. Stone crabs have the distinct
yellowish-orange claws with black tips.
Also, when flipping over rocks you'll often
come across pistol shrimp. This small species
of shrimp has two "front legs"that make them
easily distinguishable. They are fantastic
sheepshead bait. Be sure to put the rocks back
after checking under them things live
there, after all.
WHERE DO I GET BARNACLES?
Barnacles grow in abundance on pier and
bridge pilings, so that's a good place to start
looking for them. Getting to them, on the
other hand, can be tricky. So use your noggin.
I like to collect mine from areas where people
don't target sheepshead. Some folks get
angry when people scrape pilings at their
sheepshead haunts, claiming that makes for
poor fishing. While I totally disagree with
that sentiment although that's a story for
a different day I find it easier to collect
barnies from piers that are almost completely
exposed at low tide. This isn't true for places
such as El Jobean and Placida.
Take a paint scraper or small shovel (spade)
with you to scrape the barnacles off the pilings
and into a bucket. If you find a good spot with
lots of barnies, collecting bait for the day
shouldn't take longer than five minutes. That's


hard. Fish on, fellow anglers.

Some baits jump, others have tiny, wiggling seizures and
those are fish of the "friendly" persuasion. There's a whole class
of nasty fish that sprouts sharp fins, or will try to stab, sting or
bite you. If you want to fish, get over it... something is going
to have to suffer in order for you to land dinner, and it's better
the bait than you.
Easier said than done though, right? I hail from the North,
where you can catch any size of walleye, pike, bass, trout or
perch with a simple earthworm on a hook. No one has prob-
lems killing a nightcrawler. I soon found out that trying to get
Florida fish to eat a worm is worse than serving hot dogs at a
five-star restaurant, without all the hassle of customer service
complaints.
The first big hurdle I crossed was having MF educate me on
the different kinds of bait: What was most important to him
was which bait the fish we were looking for like best, I was more
interested in each bait's plan of attack and how best to avoid it.
Pinfish are evil! They're decent-sized bait, but sprout terribly
sharp dorsal fins when threatened, and believe me, stabbing
a hook through their sides is all it takes for them to get a little
defensive. If you're not well-versed in holding these the proper
way, don't use them, because you will bleed and it will hurt.
More often than not, when pinfish come up in our castnet, we
shake them back out in the water and throw again, mostly
because the fish we like to catch don't care for these as much,
but also because they're such a pain to hook up.
Shrimp are fairly tricky to figure out too, because they have
probes on their head and tail, and will do their best to cause you
harm with both of them. If dropped on the deck, they also "pop"
around, convulsing quickly enough to pop straight in the air and
give you fits. If you grab them directly behind their head, you're
clear of each probe (they curl their tails inward to try and sting
you so if you're grabbing their head, you're safe because their
body is blocking you from the attack).
I've dubbed mullet "wheefish" because they jump out of the
water often, either to release a gas buildup in their bodies or
escape predators, I think. They look like they're having so much
fun. Because I have the brain of a 4-year-old, I like to imagine
they say,"Whee!" when they jump thus, wheefish. (Yes, I'm
a dork). They have big enough fins to give you tiny paper cuts,
but are otherwise completely harmless. If you open the livewell
(that's the box filled up with water on the boat where living
things swim), they are likely to launch themselves onto the deck,
which might startle you. But they won't attach to your face and
suck out your brains through your nose or anything.
Greenies (greenbacks, whitebait, pilchards, etc... everything
down here has about four different names) to me pose the
smallest risk because all they do is wiggle a lot. I've had my best
luck with catching a wide array offish with them also, so they
quickly became my favorite bait.
Artificial lures are obviously the easiest and least traumatic to
bait up, but require a lot more hands-on work once they're in the
water to make them appear like they're alive and not rubber, so
if passive fishing is more your deal, this is not the bait for you.
Once you've picked your poison sometimes you're
depending on whatever is readily available to use, so try and
expand your horizons as quickly as possible the next experi-
ence is fishing for your bait in the livewell. I have a difficult time
playing God you know,"This one shall die!"- and I think way
too much about menial things, so this usually takes me a good
5 minutes. I can't tell you how many times I've looked up after
fishing the livewell for a few minutes, only to see MF watching
me with a smile."You find one?" is all he needs to say, and I know
it's go-time or I'm going to be mocked the rest of the day.
Now, actually baiting the hook. I'm a fan of all things living,
so putting sharp hooks into anything's vital organs poses a new
trauma to me during every effort. If we're in the middle of a big
school and time is of the essence, I usually defer to MF, who has
no problem killing anything I put in front of him.
If you're too proud to ask for help, good for you! I confess
I'm still not very good at this: I apologize to the greenies while
I'm hooking them. I yell at the pinfish. The wheefish make me
scream. When I try to stab a shrimp and it jumps, I holler bloody
murder and throw it down on the deck. I'm building up my
tolerance, though.
The next task is where to stab your bait. A"belly hook" ensures
the fish is distressed (awful, right?), which draws fish to feed on
it, and is ideal if the tide isn't strong. The drawback is that if the
tide is running out at a decent clip, bait hooked through the belly
will flip sideways and not attract anything. Belly-hooked fish
don't survive as long as fish hooked through the nose, either.
Hooking bait through the nose allows your bait to swim
more naturally, which is a good idea if the tide is strong or
you're casting out into a school offish where your odds of
getting a hit are higher. These baits also last longer, around
four to five casts, so if you're trying to make your bait last, this
is a good way to do it.
Remember: As with anything in life, practice makes perfect!
Don't quit, it does get easier. I still get frustrated all the time,
but there's power and pride in not having to wait for
someone else to bait your hook. Once you get this technique
down, everything else is gravy.
Not really, but it's a step in the right direction.

Angling Ainger Creek


9.f -- s^

WaterLine photos

Ainger Creek boat ramp
in Englewood offers
easy access to the Gulf.


It was Sunday afternoon, and I suddenly got
the urge to go kayaking. I live in North Port, so
going down to Pine Island Sound was too far
- one of my favorite locations. I remembered
driving past a boat ramp in Englewood, just
past Fisherman's Edge and Lemon Bay High
School. It's called Ainger Creek Park, and I've
wanted to launch there for some time now.
I usually don't kayak by myself, and I don't
recommend it, but this was one of those
times when I had my heart set on it. I had
my flotation device, water, horn and flash-
light and as always, my fishing pole.
I found a spot to park right away, and fed
the electronic meter. I didn't have to carry
my kayak far. The boat ramp was occupied,
so I opted to launch off one of the two small
fishing docks at the park. I leaned my pole
against the dock piling and went back to the
truck to get my fishing license. As I returned
to the dock, I noticed my pole was gone. I
noticed a teenager walking away from the
area, but realized the rod he had wasn't
mine. As I walked onto the dock, I looked
into the water, and there it was. Turned out


4 skinned trout fillets, about 1/2 pounds each
1-1/2 cups Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
1 cup minced crabmeat
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced finely
3 tbsp grated Romano cheese
1 clove garlic, crushed
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tomato, quartered in wedges
1/4 cup Italian salad dressing
Lemon wedges
Tabasco sauce to taste


the wind picked up a bit. Not wanting to lose
any valuable time, I opted not to wash off
the pole and headed into the wind.
There are two main ways you can kayak
after you launch at Ainger Creek Park. You
can go east towards SR 776, or west towards
the Gulf. I'm sure going inland offers some
terrific views of bridges and residential
waterfront properties, but I chose the Gulf.
Right away, you are forced to go under a
Placida Road bridge. And for you anglers out
there, you know the sheepshead bite is on.
I watched a couple pull out a few sheepies,
but I had only kayaked about 20 feet. I could
have easily just stayed there for an hour or
so, but had some exploring to do.
As soon as you clear the bridge, you will
notice the expansive view of Lemon Bay and
Manasota Key. Depending on how much time
you have, you can head north to the Placida
Fishing Pier, or south to the Cedar Point Envi-
ronmental Park. For the daring adventurer,
you can paddle all the way down to Stump
Pass. But just watch out for the navigational
markers and boats.


A clip-n-save seafood
recipe provided by


In a bowl, mix breadcrumbs, crabmeat, diced pepper, cheese, garlic and oil. Preheat oven to 350F.
Lay one fillet on a cutting board and score the center about halfway through. Spoon breadcrumb
mixture into slit and on top of fillet. Cut a slit all the way through second fillet, leaving about an
inch uncut at each end. Lay second fillet on top of first, pressing down slightly so breadcrumb
stuffing is exposed through slit. Transfer stuffed fillets to lightly greased baking pan. Repeat with
the two other fillets. Put the tomato wedges on top and pour the salad dressing over all. Bake 45
to 60 minutes or until done. Serves 8.

The wind picked up the farther I paddled
into Lemon Bay, so I decided to stick around
the environmental park.
There are beautiful grass flats and
oyster beds, which I later discovered were
everywhere out there. I would recommend
avoiding low tide if you decide to make it out
there.
Since there were grass flats, I knew there
would be trout, and there were. I brought a
few plastic artificial with me, because you
never know what works, and what doesn't.
On that day, it seemed a money-colored
MirrOlure Lil'John did the trick. I simply
drifted over some sandholes in the grass -

trout tend to hang out near the edges of
the holes, waiting for bait to swim by. They
weren't big trout, but they were trout.
After releasing four fish, I decided to move
into deeper water near the channel. It was
getting a little darker, the moon was glaring
down, and I noticed fish hitting the surface
of the water. The color of money didn't do
the trick, so I switched to a lighter color -
something called albino. Two casts later and
my reel was singing. I immediately thought
redfish or snook, but as I was being dragged
360 degrees in my kayak, I had a good idea
of what I had hooked into. I ran into a school
of jack crevalle. For those who know, even
little jacks can pack a big punch. After two
rotations of the kayak, my jack settled down
just enough for me to grab a souvenir photo
of the two of us. That jack fought harder than
sharks that I've battled in a kayak.
I always wanted to launch out of Ainger
Creek Park. I'm glad that I did. It was a great
way to kill a couple of hours. Next time I'll
be sure to get there bright and early, and
won't leave my rod and reel unattended.

Winter boating



has its dangers


Recreational boating is often referred
to as "Pleasure boating.":' If a captain is not
extra alert, winter boating can quickly
change the word pleasure to disaster. If a
boater were to steal a line from Dorothy
in the "Wizard of Oz,"it might be"Running
aground, hypothermia, and carbon
monoxide poisoning, OH MY!"
The low winter tides make some of our usual
short-cuts across marked channels impossible.
It's interesting to look at the water from local
bridges and see many of the shoals defined
as they raise their usually submerged heads
above the water. Some of the many canal
inlets look like small rivers as banks of bottom
now give them an unusual definition. All of
these wondrous sites should cause a captain
to be extra careful and reduce speed as well
as appoint a lookout to watch the water
color in anticipation of hidden dangers. You
might not think it could happen to you, but
if a huge cruise ship captain (recently in the
news) can do it, so can you. When we think of
hypothermia, we usually think of being in the
water. This is not necessarily so. Hypothermia
is a lowering of the body core temperature.
This can happen when you are totally dry.
The local weather reports usually give a
temperature along with a much lower"wind
chill factor:'."When you're cruising along at 15
knots or more, you're creating a huge wind
chill factor, and if you're not wearing sufficient
clothing, you can easily bring on the onset of
hypothermia as the air temperature you are
experiencing may be much lower than that of
the water. A little shudder or shiver means that
your body temperature is reaching a poten-
tially dangerous level and you need to warm
up, and quickly.
Carbon monoxide is a silent and deadly
killer. It's insidious in that some of the early


symptoms include confusion, loss of judgment,
and hallucinations. This can cause a victim to
ignore the symptoms and not take corrective
action. Carbon monoxide is the byproduct
of combustion and is present in all exhaust
fumes. If you smell exhaust, you are potentially
in danger. In the cold winter we are tempted
to close all side curtains and hatches. Unfor-
tunately, this creates a trap to hold all gases
inside. Care must be taken to open sufficient
ports or side curtains to allow air to pass
through the boat and clean the air you are
breathing. If you sleep aboard, be particularly
mindful of running a generator or gas heater.
Both produce exhaust fumes and must be
vented properly. The introduction of carbon
monoxide while sleeping can be a deadly
combination.
Warming your hands over an open fire can
be pleasant, but not aboard a boat! The galley
stove may create some warmth, but do not
leave an open flame unattended. When you
are cooking, make sure all curtains, towels, or
other materials are far away from the burners.
Make certain any charcoal is stored in a dry
location and in a sealed container. Wet charcoal
has the ability to spontaneously combust and
if not kept dry, you might end up being the
cooked instead of the cooker.
All of the dangers listed above are ever
present, but during the winter time, our
desire to keep warm may cause us to overlook
those ever present dangers. So please be
extra cautious and careful out there and lets
keep the word "Pleasure" in our recreational
boating.

No matter what holiday you celebrate -
Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, Festivus, Yule,
Saturnalia, Pancha Ganapati -this is the time
of year when families and friends get together.
I'm very lucky and thankful for more than words
can ever say. Thank you so much to Frank and
Terry, Josh Olive, all the pirates at Fishin' Frank's,
all of our fantastic customers, my blood family,
my mom and my wife. Without all of you, I'd be
nothing and nowhere. Let your family know you
care. Help out a stranger. Be kind to someone
just because. Some people are not as fortunate
as you, and you never know who needs a smile
or a hand. And remember, the holidays should
not be the only time to act this way.
OK, enough of the sappy stuff let's talk
fish handling. A lot of people have a hard
time with handling fish the right way. Part
of that is not understanding how important
a fish's slime coat is to its health. You might
regard it as just yucky stuff, but for the fish
it's a protective barrier that keeps bacteria
and fungus from getting to its skin. The slime
also helps the fish move through the water
more easily, meaning it has to expend less
energy to swim. Every time you get fish slime
on your hands or clothes, you're taking some-
thing away that the fish actually needs.
To avoid removing the slime, the


number-one rule is to only handle a fish with
wet hands. You can buy gloves designed for
handling fish. They have little rubber bumps
for traction, and as long as the gloves are wet
they won't remove much of the fish's protec-
tive slime coat. Never use a dry glove or a rag
to handle fish, unless you know for sure those
fish are going to be harvested. I know that a
towel makes a fish much easier to hang on to,
but if the fish you release later dies because of
a fungal infection, there was really no point in
releasing it. It's up to each of us to do our best
to release healthy fish.
It's important to not handle a fish any more
than necessary. Really, the ideal thing would
be to never touch the fish at all. But when
you catch a fish, whether you're keeping it or
letting it go, you have to get it off the hook.
Fortunately, there are lots of gadgets out
there that can help. Of course, needle-nose
pliers are an essential in any tackle box, and
not just for getting hooks out. All pliers will
rust or corrode, unless you are willing to drop
large dollar for a solid titanium model. There
are also purpose-built tools just for getting
hooks out. Most are designed to reach down
into the fish's throat to either grab the hook
by the bend or simply pop it loose. My choice
is the extractor-style, which has a long reach


and a simple trigger-squeeze operation. Some
dehooking tools, such as the ARC, are made so
that you can flip a fish off your hook without
ever touching it at all. Getting the hang of it
takes practice, though.
No matter how you choose to remove a
hook, the job can be made much easier if you
flatten the barbs on your hooks. It doesn't
matter what kind of hooks you're using -
circle hooks, J-hooks, treble hooks mashing
down those barbs will make it much less of
a chore to get the hook out of the fish, or
anything else it happens to get stuck in. As
long as you keep the line relatively tight, you
don't need to worry about the hook falling out
of the fish. I've been flattening most of my
hook barbs for years, and I haven't noticed it
causing me any problems.
We all love to take photos with our catches.
But it's good to keep in mind that fish need
water to breathe. To avoid keeping a fish out
of water too long, hold your breath from the
moment you pull it out of the water until the
moment you put it back in. After all, the fish
can't breathe, so it's only fair. And on a hot,
sunny day, the slime dries quickly in contact with
the air. Take your photos, but be quick about it.
Although fish usually get the worst of it
when we handle them, there are some fish that


can hurt you back. Most fish have sharp spines
in their dorsal fins, and a puncture wound is
likely to become infected. Catfish have spines
that are actually venomous, and based on the
number of people injured by them, they're
probably the most dangerous fish in local
waters. And no matter what you do, you will
catch at least the occasional catfish. They
don't make anything that is catfish-proof, but
you can get a fish gripper. It truly is the best
thing ever. I suggest using a BogaGrip or other
lipping tool for handling any other species. Be
sure to support the belly of the fish with your
free hand, if you plan to release it.
Fishing is messy. You're going to get stuck,
bit, wet, slimed and stinky even if you don't
catch a fish that's just part of it. But we do
it because we love it, and to keep doing it, we
need to have plenty offish for the future. Keep
only legal fish and only what you need for
the table. Release the rest healthy and you're
doing your part to be a good steward of our
precious resources.

Quality and quantity


We had just finished a kayak outing
and were famished. I mean we were
hungry. Small portions would not do
the trick. We had heard of a place on the
water in Englewood called Howards, and
since we were in the area, we gave it a
go. We were glad we did.
Fortunately, Howards stays open until
9 p.m. each night. We arrived at 7, but
had plenty of time to enjoy what was an
extremely filling meal.
Although known for its diverse seafood
selection, Howards is equally known
for its salad bar. Each meal comes with
the bountiful salad bar, and includes
such items as mixed vegetables, salad,
mashed potatoes, pasta salad, beans and
items that change on a daily basis. Meals
also come with bread needless to say,
we left full, not famished.
Howards is also known for its home-
made soups. Unfortunately, the salmon
bisque, seafood bisque, Manhattan clam
chowder and New England clam chowder
were not available on the day we were
there. So instead, we ordered the stuffed
mushrooms. They were big, and filled
with a stuffing loaded with real and
imitation crabmeat. They were hearty,
and served as a terrific warmup to our
main course.
Deciding what to have for dinner was a
tough choice. There were plenty of steak
and lamb dishes to choose from, but we
were there for the seafood.
There were dinners of basa, haddock,
grouper, mahi-mahi, salmon, shrimp,
scallops, lobster tails complete with salad
bar and your choice of sweet potato,
baked potato, mashed potato, french
fries, sweet potato fries or rice. You can
also add a variety of homemade sauces
to enhance the flavor of the fish.
Knowing we would get our fill at the
salad bar, we opted to split the seafood
primavera Carolyn from Boston, our
server, convinced us. We were pleas-
antly surprised to see shrimp, scallops,
calamari, mussels, clams and mixed
vegetables sauteed in a white sauce, all
tossed with Penne Pasta. Of course, you
can substitute in red sauce, but Merab
had her mind set on white sauce.
I've been to restaurants where the


-. The salad bar at
L Howard's is big
Enough to satisfy the ''
Hungriest of bellies!

shrimp and scallops were on the smaller
side. Howards is not one of those places.
The plumpness and flavor of the scallops
and shrimp were the first two things
that popped into my mind. The mussels,
calamari and clams were also good, and
the vegetables gave us a reason to feel
like we were eating very healthy.
We were almost as impressed with the


view at Howards as we were with the
quality and quantity of the food. We could
have simply kayaked to the restaurant,
located on the water, but I think we would
have been too full to have kayaked home.
Howards is located at 1400 Aqua View
Lane, Englewood. It's just off SR 776. Bring
your appetite. Call 941-473-0171 for more
information.

Kyle Naegeli, a 15-year-old Texas resident, has invented a
new sport: Sewer fishing. He demonstrated his technique
to catching surprisingly large catfish in the sewer in a
YouTube video (http://bit.ly/18MtC66). Naegeli says
adventures in sewer fishing began after he dropped a ball
down the sewer and realized there was water in it. His first
attempt began with a $5 betwith his dad that he couldn't
catch a fish. Since making that bet, he's caught many more
fish. To nab the fish, he sets a 10-foot line through the sew-
er hole with a chunk of hot dog as bait and watches out his
window to see if it moves."I have a line out constantly -
set it and check it every night,";' he says. During the summer,
Naegeli says he gets a few fish a week, which he throws
back into the sewer. The number offish slows down in the
fall and winter, but he still gets a few catches.
GET THE LEAD OUT
Firing ranges host some of the planet's most heavily con-
taminated soils. Toxic lead and copper from spent bullets
can leach into the earth, threatening groundwater, killing
microbes and poisoning plants. Cleaning this soil is often
too costly for the operators of military and private ranges.
Now, Korean scientists have created a natural mixture that
sops up nearly all the metals: Pulverized oyster shells and
fly ash, the sooty particles spewed by combustion. Landfills
in Korea accumulate more than 250,000 tons of oyster
shells each year, while coal-fired power plants churn out
just as much fly ash. Combining the two waste products


creates a concoction rich in minerals that shackle metal
ions within tight molecular bonds, the team reported this
month in Environmental Geochemistry and Health. By
mixing different ratios of the ingredients, the researchers
identified a unique blend that locked up 98 percent of
leachable lead contamination and 96 percent of the copper.
ICELAND PLANS TO KILL MORE WHALES
In a move likely to intensify international condemnation
of the practice, Iceland says itwill increase its 2014
quotas for whaling. The country's fishing ministry said the
hunting and killing of minke whales would be increased
from 216 in 2013 to 229 in 2014.The hunting quota for
rorquals blue, humpback and fin whales remains
unchanged at 154. In 2013, Iceland's whalers did not
reach the quotas permitted by their government, killing
only 134 rorquals and 38 minke whales. Since it resumed
whaling in 2006, despite an international moratorium,
Iceland, along with Norway, has come in for furious
criticism from environmental groups and some other
countries. Icelanders eat little whale meat, and most of
the catch is sent to the Japanese market.


AUSSIES HUNT BIG SHARKS
Following the deaths of two surfers in recent weeks,
authorities in Western Australia have ordered hunters to
catch and kill any sharks over 3 meters (10 feet) long. In
response to six fatal shark attacks in the past two years,
the state government is creating safety zones around
beaches in the city of Perth and along popular coastal
regions to the south. Authorities say that sharks spotted


in the designated areas will be considered to pose an im-
minent threat to swimmers and surfers and will be killed.
Commercial fishermen will be hired to hunt and kill sharks
bigger than three meters in the zones, while baited hook
lines will catch smaller specimens. Western Australia's
Fisheries Minister Troy Buswell says the measures will
make beaches safer, and denies the moves amount to a
culling of protected species. Tourism operators in Western
Australia have welcomed the catch-and-kill policy. They
say many visitors have decided to stay away from coastal
areas in the southwestern corner of Western Australia
following the most recent attack. Conservationists argue
that protected species, such as the great white, should
not be hunted, and that swimmers and surfers should be
aware that they enter the water at their own risk.
TASTES LIKE PLASTIC
Plastic debris in the ocean may be contributing to a
chemical cocktail in your seafood dinner. In a recent
study, researchers fed three groups offish different
diets: Regular fish food, a diet containing 10 percent
"clean" plastic (with no pollutants), and a diet containing
10 percent plastic that had been soaking in the San
Diego Bay for several months. When they tested the
fish two months later, they found that the ones on the
marine plastic diet had much higher levels of persistent
organic pollutants. Turns out the plastic acts like sponge,
absorbing pollutants and chemicals in the water. In the
fish's digestive systems, the chemicals were pulled out
and transferred to the fish's tissues. Not only were the
levels higher, fish on the marine plastic diet were also
more likely to have tumors and liver problems. While it's
impossible to know how much plastic a particular fish
may have consumed, or what the effects of the chemicals
on humans may be, this isjust one more reason to limit
the amount of top predator in your diet.
HOW TO SCHOOL
The ability of schooling fish to change direction in
harmony has long intrigued scientists, who have
developed several ways of describing in mathematical
terms how schooling works. But those approaches
tend to be simplifications that do not take into account
all the real-time sensory information available to the
fish. To get a better idea of what the fish were actually
doing, Princeton University biologist lain Couzin and his


colleagues devised a way to make fish move on cue. The
researchers taught a few fish to swim toward a green light
to find food and then placed those fish in a larger school.
When the light went on, the trained fish broke toward it,
triggering a cascade of responses as the rest of the school
fell in behind the leaders. Couzin filmed the action with
high-speed video that allowed the researchers to map
each fish's visual field using the location and position of
its head. The researchers reported that each fish based its
decisions on where to go not on the behavior of its nearest
neighbors, as is often assumed, but on a synthesis of
where all the fish in its field of view were headed.
WALK ON WATER
An avid duck hunter was in the market for a new bird
dog. His search ended when he found a dog that could
actually walk on water to retrieve a duck. Shocked by his
find, he was sure none of his friends would ever believe
him. He decided to try to break the news to a friend of
his, an eternal pessimist who refused to be impressed
with anything. This, surely, would impress him. He invited
him to hunt with him and his new dog. As they waited
by the shore, a flock of ducks flew by. They fired, and a
duck fell. The dog responded and jumped from the boat,
trotted across the water, and retrieved the bird, never
getting more than his paws wet. This continued all day
long each time a duck fell, the dog walked across the
surface of the water to retrieve it. The pessimist watched
carefully, saw everything, but did not say a single word.
On the drive home the hunter asked his friend, "Did you
notice anything unusual about my new dog?""Yep,"
responded the pessimist. "That dog can't swim."

Hey shooters, what's going
on around town? Holiday
season is in full swing and the
gun shops are enjoying a flurry
of Christmas business. I live
over by the Myakka River, and
in the mornings at daylight
when I walk my lab, I'm hearing
shotguns barking, so the duck
hunters must be having some
action along the river.
Maybe it's Phil, Willie, and
uncle Si. Boy are those guys
covering all their bases and
making some serious money.
We now have Duck dynasty Chia
pets so you can water them
and watch the beards grow.


to go,






ladies


The redneck boys have found a niche and are
pulling down some good money.
Locally at Babcock, web bird season is in full
swing, and while the quail hunting has been a
little slow, the snipe hunting has been excel-
lent. With all the rain we had this summer, the
flag ponds on web wildlife management area
are still pretty wet and that's what those snipe
really like. You don't even need dogs, just walk
around the edges of the flag ponds and you
will flush the birds up. They fly fast and erratic,
are challenging to hit and are really good to
eat.
In my last column I offered a free basic pistol
class for ladies who had an interest in trying a
handgun out, but had absolutely no experience
at all. My offer was that the first five ladies
to call could do the class, but I had twice that
many apply, so not wanting to turn anyone
away I did two classes on two separate days.
By keeping the class small, I am able to give
everyone individual hands-on attention, and
that's the way training should be done.
With the weather as beautiful as it has been,
I decided to do my classroom part in the picnic
area down byWebb Lake, and then go to the
range for the shooting part. There weren't any
drill sergeants barking orders, and nobody had
to do push-ups, but the ladies all received a
good basic class on handgun safety and use.
We started out with the basic safety rules
and then moved on to the actual mechanics
of revolver and semi-automatic pistols. I had
revolver shooters and semi-automatic shooters,
so we learned about handling both types
slowly, carefully and above all, safely.
In basic training, I emphasize that you have
got to walk before you run so take it slow and
steady until your handling of the gun becomes
more natural and your level of confidence rises,
allowing you then to increase your speed. I
have to say I was impressed with how well the
ladies absorbed the safety material and the
correct handling procedures of both types of
weapons. Don't forget now, these were girls


who had no previous experience to speak of,
and several had never even had a gun in their
hands.
We had a few fingers wanting to stray onto
the trigger and a little muzzle discipline issue,
but hey, that's why the class is so valuable.
After the basic safety material and the
mechanics related to the two types of
pistols, we went into things like loading
and unloading, making the gun safe, proper
stance, grip, sight alignment and dealing with
malfunctions. The ladies were introduced to
snap caps (dummy ammo) so that we could
run all this gun handling and dry firing with
no live ammunition. Most of the ladies were
amazed to find out that so many things could
be practiced and dry run at home with no live
ammunition.
The three things that proved to be most
challenging were correctly locking back the
slide on a semi-uto, understanding the concept
of sight alignment and sight picture and
trigger control.
Not everyone had purchased their handgun
yet, but among the ones that did, we had a
Glock 9mm, a Ruger 9mm, several Smith &
Wesson revolver's, a Vietnam era Browning
hi-power 9mm and a big Smith & Wesson 22
revolver with target sites and a long barrel.
This was quite an assortment of different
types of guns, and the ones that didn't have
their guns, yet were able to shoot just about
anything they wanted out of my stuff, so
everybody got to try several different kinds of
guns.
I know that it helped several of the ladies
decide what type of gun and caliber might
suit them the best without buying a gun and
then finding out that really didn't suit them.
Choosing a gun for self-defense or for anything
else for that matter is important, and everyone
is different and that weighs into the type of
gun that would be appropriate for a person
to carry. Remember, just possessing a gun
is nothing, handling and gun
manipulation and operational 1

Pacific shellfish Call 941-4
id t dismayed.to list your hoatodev -__ -


industry dismayed WT2M ______



at China s ban I A' -


ByJayGreene
The Seattle Times

SEATTLE Washington state geoduck
harvesters and government officials, including
Gov. Jay Inslee, are scrambling to overturn
China's decision to ban some shellfish exports
from the Pacific Northwest.
The ban has brought the geoduck industry
here to a virtual halt.
Fish inspectors in China notified the U.S.
Embassy on Dec. 3 that China was tentatively
suspending imports of geoduck and other
"double-shell aquatic animals;' such as oysters,
because they found high levels of paralytic
shellfish poisoning, or PSP, in a Nov. 21 ship-
ment of geoducks.
PSP is a biotoxin produced by algae that
shellfish eat and, in humans, in high levels it
can lead to severe illness and even death.
Seattle radio station KUOW first reported
news of the ban.
The ban is a particularly nettlesome
problem in Washington because China
accounts for about 90 percent of geoduck
exports from the state. And fisheries in
the state harvest and farm 5.5 million to
7 million pounds of geoduck annually,
according to Taylor Shellfish Farms, one of
the state's largest geoduck providers. Those
companies generally sell geoduck, which is


a burrowing clam, for between $7 and $25
a pound.
The ban also affects Alaskan shellfish.
Local fish companies, though, are struggling
to understand the ban because testing by the
Washington State Department of Health in the
area where the geoduck shipments originated
found PSP levels well below internationally
accepted limits.
"We've gone back and looked at all records
- they show results way below any human-
health concern;'" Donn Moyer, a health depart-
ment spokesman, said Saturday. "We don't
have any evidence or information whatsoever
about any high levels of PSP in any shellfish'."
Geoduck harvesters believe the Chinese
inspectors applied a standard for the level of
toxicity that is well below what is considered
safe for humans.
"The numbers I saw (that Chinese inspec-
tors used) are just plain ridiculous;'said Tony
Forsman, general manager of Suquamish
Seafoods, a Washington state business run by
the Suquamish Tribe.
To compound the challenge, communica-
tion from the Chinese government has been
scant. State regulators and fishery executives
say they have heard nothing more from the
Chinese since the Dec. 3 notification. Media
officials from the Chinese embassy in Wash-
ington didn't respond to an email query.

skills is what makes it all come together.
Next, it was time to go to the range and put
some holes in some targets, and the ladies
were chomping at the bit. After I familiarized
the ladies with range safety procedures and
introduced them to the range safety officer
that was working, we were ready to do some
shooting.
I had some very nervous first-time shooters,
so I carefully coached them and we started
making these things go boom. For the begin-
ners, we started out with a 22 target pistol,
and as soon as they were comfortable, stepped
on up to larger caliber pistols. We had no safety
issues, and I actually had to remind them
when it was time to put their finger inside the
trigger guard because I had firmly embedded
the basic safety requirements of safe gun
handling and everybody got the message.
It wasn't long before the girls realized that
they I could do this. It's not rocket science, and
it's not gender specific. Before long, everyone
was smiling and there was even some light-
hearted bragging going on. By the time we
finished up, every lady out of the 101 trained
could consistently put the rounds all in a 6-inch
circle, and several could shoot some pretty
tight groups.
Before I finish up, just a short comment on a
local readers'editorial that was in the Sunday
paper condemning the Second Amendment
and anything about guns for that matter.


Every single fact that he stated was so far from
the truth, that I'm not going to even reply on
each and every one, but I can't pass up a shot
about what he said about how there were
too many gun shops in Port Charlotte. He said
there were more gun shops than McDonald's,
and he's right, there is one more. Now, if you
include Punta Gorda and North Port, the scale
tips highly in the other direction. If you include
Wendy's, Burger King or any of the others,
there's way too many hamburger joints. He
also said that gun owners were in a minority in
Punta Gorda. Well, I don't know where he lives
in Punta Gorda, but I have personally trained
150 or more people just in Punta Gorda Isles,
let alone all the other areas, so I don't know
where he's getting his figures. The gun laws
are fine just the way they are. They just need
to be more correctly and strictly enforced. Put
the criminals in jail for gun crimes and keep
them there. Another fact he needs to know
is that the majority of our local gun shops
are either owned or manned by law enforce-
ment personnel or retired law enforcement
personnel. Get your facts right, dude, before
you run your mouth.

This castor oil plant is part of a I ."
stand of a dozen growing wild ,. _-
in Charlotte County.


By Josh Olive
WaterLine Publisher


Would it concern you to learn that the
world's most poisonous plant is growing wild
in your neighborhood? What if I told you that
this plant can grow from a seed into a 10-foot
mature plant in a single warm season, and that
a single plant can produce a thousand or more
seeds in its first year of growth? And that if it
doesn't get killed to the ground by frost, it can
grow to 20 feet high and produce thousands of
seeds annually?
Well, I have bad news and good news.
The bad news is that the plant is here, and
becoming more abundant every year. It's the
castor oil plant, and while the plant itself is
harmless, its seeds are the source of ricin, one
of the deadliest known toxins. The good news
is that it's hard to poison someone with the
unprocessed seeds, and even harder to purify
the ricin into a usable poison.
If you watched "Breaking Bad,'you probably


remember Walt's ricin-laced cigarette. In the
real world, ricin has been used to kill rival
spies and mailed to political figures to try to
shut them up permanently. Ricin is at its most
deadly when it's injected delivered that
way, a mere 2 milligrams will probably kill
you. Inhalation of ricin powder takes just a
touch more. But making highly purified ricin
that can be injected or inhaled is a process
that requires specialized equipment and a
background in chemistry.
The seeds themselves, just as nature
makes them, are less dangerous. You'd have
to eat them and actually chew them up to
poison yourself, and it would probably take
at least four to six seeds to be fatal. But the
seeds are reported to be powerfully bitter
- they contain as much as 60 percent castor
oil, which is used as both a laxative and to
induce vomiting. (Ricin doesn't dissolve in
oil, which is why castor oil doesn't kill you.)
In other words, you won't be
eating the seeds as a delicious

snack. Plus the seeds' outer coat is tough
and indigestible, which means an unchewed
seed will probably pass right through you.
Let me be clear that I'm not suggesting that
would make a fun pastime; I'm just saying it
probably won't kill you. Probably.
The castor oil plant is native to India and
eastern Africa. What's it doing here? Well, most
of the plants growing wild are of the tall green
variety. The ancestors of these plants were
probably grown as an oil crop. However, I've
also seen a few around that are of the shorter,
red-leafed type. These are usually used as
garden ornamentals. Either way, castor seeds
have two ways of getting around. First, when
the three-seeded pod is ripe, it doesn't simply
fall to the ground. Instead, it bursts open,
shooting the seeds as far as 15 feet from the
parent plant. That itself is a nifty trick, but
the seeds also have another one: At one end

is an elaiosome, which is a ten-dollar word
describing a high-fat nubbin of tissue. The
elaiosome is there to entice ants to drag the
seed off to their mound. Fire ants seem quite
fond of castor seeds, and they do a bang-up
job of spreading the seeds far and wide. It's
an example of one invasive exotic helping out
another just what we needed, right?
Despite these potentially very dangerous
plants popping up all over, I haven't heard
of anyone being poisoned. That's a good
thing, at least. If you do somehow ingest
castor seeds (How? Umn, I guess you could
trip and fall and they land in your mouth)
medical science has no antidote but can offer
supportive care that means you'll probably
survive a modest dose. All the same, maybe
it would be better to try to avoid castor oil
plants, if for no other reason than there are
often fire ants living in close proximity.

Florida on target to



conduct 1 million



background checks


By Jim Turner
The News Service of Florida


TALLAHASSEE The gift of a gun may be
high on many Floridians' holiday shopping
lists.
The Florida Department of Law Enforce-
ment says it is on target to conduct nearly
1 million background checks this year on
private firearm purchases. The projection
comes as the department is reporting a
record number of reviews conducted over
the Thanksgiving weekend that typically
kicks off the year-end holiday shopping
season.
"We have definitely seen an increase in
the number of background checks over the
past several years;'" FDLE spokeswoman
Samantha Andrews said. "You can see
November and December are relatively
larger" for sales.
Andrews declined to speculate on the
reason for the increase and said the checks
are only conducted on the individuals
making purchases.
National Rifle Association lobbyist Marion
Hammer said that in addition to buying
firearms as gifts, guns sales have grown
due to the improved economy and an effort
by merchants to move stock by offering
enticing holiday sales.
"I think it's a combination of people
wanting to take advantage of sales as well as
the gift giving,;' Hammer said. "The retailers
I talked to ... they feel the economy may be
starting to recover, or people are relaxing
a little more, and are starting to turn loose
some of the money they were reluctant to
spend. And it's that time of year.":'
The FDLE recorded approximately 823,000
checks on firearms purchases as of Dec. 15,
of which about 40,000 were from December.
Last December, the department recorded
more than 110,000 checks.
The 2013 number already surpasses the
797,000 background checks conducted in
2012. There were roughly 610,000 checks
conducted in 2011.
Each check includes criminal history and
mental-health database reviews.
Times can fluctuate depending upon
demand, but the agency aims for a 4 minute
turn-around when a check is conducted by a
dealer over the phone, Andrews said.


The check can also be done online.
Fewer than 6 percent of the checks result
in a sale being denied, Andrews said.
There were nearly 13,500 checks
conducted the Friday and Saturday after
Thanksgiving, up from 13,200 during the
same period a year earlier.
Because of the growing number of
background checks, the FDLE has requested
18 new employees during the next budget
year to help complete the requests in the
firearms purchase program, while another
18 employees already doing the quick
checks under an "other personal services"
temporary designation could be shifted into
full-time positions.
The requests are part of a $19 million
increase proposed to the FDLE's $269 million
budget for the 2014-15 fiscal year.
During an appearance last week before
the state Cabinet, FDLE Commissioner Gerald
Bailey pointed to the Thanksgiving weekend
as an example of a spike in sales that taxes
staff time.
"In order to do this, we had to bring in
people from other parts of the departments
to make it work;' Bailey told Gov. Rick Scott
and members of the Florida Cabinet.
Bailey added that even though there was
a brief glitch when the internal system for
Wal-Mart went down, the checks were done
relatively quickly.
The increased number of checks comes
at the same time as Florida has a record
number of concealed-weapon or firearm
licenses issued by the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services.
The consumer services department
reported that as of Nov. 30, there were
1,195,645 concealed weapon or firearm
licenses issued in Florida. The state
went over the 1 million mark a year ago,
becoming the first state in the nation to
surpass that figure.
Hammer said because of the increasing
population, and a growing awareness of the
state's concealed-carry laws, guns sales will
continue to grow.
"People are more aware of the need to
protect themselves and their families;'
Hammer said.
The checks typically also increase around
Valentine's Day and in the spring as federal
tax refunds are mailed out, Andrews said.

SHAME
FROM PAGE 2


bluefish were found sitting in a big pile
at a boat ramp. I'm glad to say it wasn't
anywhere in Southwest Florida, but it still
happened. It happened in the Panhandle,
and investigators say the fish were caught
by gill net. What a waste! That's more than a
shame that's a low down, dirty shame.


Unlike Willy, whoever did this should pay
for what they knowingly did. This is a case
where I wouldn't mind the FWC making an
example out of the culprit, or culprits. Four
hundred pounds of fish could've fed a whole
bunch of people who needed it this season.
What a waste.
Contact the Wildlife Alert hotline at
888-404-3922. Anonymity is guaranteed,
and if the call leads to an arrest a reward
may be paid.

I !Wearing the


Colors


You may have noticed we've been doing
a little experiment with WaterLine-branded
attire. For the past three weeks, we've had ads
in the paper offering WaterLine hats for sale (if
you missed it, it's on page 6). Things have been
going about the way I thought they would and
we're going to need to order a second run of
hats in the very near future. Because Water-
Line fans seem to like them, I thought maybe


',"A,\
~A
t' ,),' ', ,E ,.-_- M ,
11 '


guidelo ouldoorIreNeLmI
V guidi~omiioU~dOFeire


we'd expand our choices a little bit. WaterLine
logo shirts, anyone?
I like to do new things, but I like to do them
cautiously. To start with, I think we'll have just
a couple options: A simple, basic T-shirt and a
Denali microfiber shirt. And I think we'll start
with only a few artwork choices. What do you
think of the versions pictured here? Drop me a
line and let me know.


E~ WA SBlMl6 lRc1lG ia4H1B 'B
w' ~ i *i~au~~ice~o i[


Truthfully, I'm grateful and just a bit awed
that people like what we do well enough to
want to wear our logo. Someone who will
actually spend money to wear our colors isn't
just a casual reader that's a fan. And in
recognition of that, we're going to keep the
prices low but the quality will be absolutely
professional. Just like with the hats, I don't
want it to be something you keep in the closet.

I want it to be your new favorite.
Once we have the shirts available, we'll
be sure to let you know. In the meantime, if
you've been thinking of getting a hat, you
might want to hurry because we're running
low. It took me a lot of looking around to
find a blank hat that met all of our require-
ments, and getting an order in takes a few
weeks.

Thank you, mullet


By Lee Anderson
WaterLine Editor

Ahh, the gift of giving mullet!
Yes, one of my most favorite fish to put on the table
down here in Florida is the mullet. And i'm not talking
about the white or red roe, I'm talking about the meat.
And not smoked, either. In my mind, not much beats a
properly filleted mullet.
But not everybody shares my opinion. My wife
and I recently hosted a holiday party at our house.
At first, I was going to get some chicken breasts and
hamburgers to grill. But I decided to make it a seafood
theme. The thought of grouper and crab cakes came
to mind, but that would have been way too expensive.
I would have had to split each crab cake into penny-
sized portions, and everybody would have had to pick
at a single grouper fillet. So I went with mullet and
oysters. I made it a little experiment, and as it turns
out, I made a bunch of people fans of the underrated
fish. It was rewarding to experience the gift of giving.
I'd like to say that I went out with my cast net and
got all of the mullet myself, but I didn't. I bought
about 20 pounds of the stuff, and it cost me the
equivalent of two fine grouper fillets.
Of course, when people at our party first learned
we were serving fish, they had thoughts of grouper,
salmon and even snapper. And knowing that I worked
for WaterLine, we even had a couple people ask if
it was tripletail or hogfish. The look of optimism on
people's faces immediately turned into the look of
disbelief when I mentioned we would be feasting on
mullet sandwiches, complete with a pinch of cajun
seasoning and Texas Pete hot sauce.
In my opinion, the difference between a good fillet
of mullet and a bad one is getting rid of as much of the
dark red bloodline as you can without butchering the
final product. The bloodline is typically the cause of the
strong, fishy taste in fish. Some people like to leave it
in. I don't, and I knew most of the people at the party
wouldn't.
It turns out it was pretty chilly that night, so I didn't
even bother with the grill. I kept it simple and cooked


all the fish from a single pan on the stove. People
who had never tried mullet before were about to be
amazed. They couldn't believe it wasn't more popular
than it is, and why restaurants don't typically serve it
- I'd absolutely love to see a variety of mullet, or lisa,
dishes at the fancy fish restaurants!
It was a great time. People who had lived in
Southwest Florida for years were introduced to a low
cost, readily available fish called the mullet. I even
packed up some fillets for people to bring home and
experiment with. The gift of giving really is priceless.
Jim from Fisherman's Edge in Grove City knows how
good mullet is. Just ask him about it next time you're
in the area. I'm sure he'll be more than happy to give
you a recipe or two. As for the other bait shop guys,
thank you for your fishing reports and much more.
I look forward to 2014, and I'll drop you off some
mullet. Just let me know.

Uterine prolapse not

necessarily cause for surgery


DEAR DR. ROACH: I am
a 66-year-young female,
5 feet, 3 inches tall, and
125 pounds. A year ago, I
had a coughing spell, and
the next thing I knew I had
what I determined to be
uterine prolapse. I went to
the doctor, and based on
her examination, I have
a "moderate" prolapse.
It does not interfere with
urinating or sexual inter-
course, or anything else. I
can see it and feel it when
it is down in my vagina,
and I just push it back up.
My significant other says
he does not notice it when
we are intimate. Will it
eventually get worse? My
doctor recommended that
I do the Kegel exercises and
gave me a prescription for
Premarin vaginal cream. I
have a hard time believing
the cream can help, at this
point, to strengthen the
ligaments. I am doing the
exercises. Do you think
the cream can help, and is
there anything else I can
do to avoid surgery? Is it
unwise to continue to have
sex two or three times a
week? -D.S.S.
ANSWER: Pelvic organ
prolapse, which includes
vaginal or uterine prolapse,
is caused by a weakness in
the support structures of
the pelvis, including the
ligaments you mention.
They can cause several
problems, including dif-
ficulty with urinating and
defecating, sexual troubles
and pelvic pressure or
pain. Risk factors include
age, number of childbirths,
weight and previous sur-
gery. If symptomatic, it can
be treated with surgery,
pelvic floor exercises or a
pessary. If it isn't bothering
you, it does not need to be
treated.
I suspect your doctor has
prescribed the estrogen
cream and pelvic exercises
in order to prevent the
prolapse from progressing,
or at least to slow it down.
Kegel exercises have
no side effects, and the
cream is also safe for most
women.
DEAR DR. ROACH:
I'm 62 years old, and I'm
starting to lose my high-
pitch hearing. I now try to
protect myself from further
damage by keeping the
TV down low, wearing ear-
plugs when I mow, weed,
vacuum, ride my motor-
cycle, etc. My problem is
that some of these new
automatic-flush toilets
sound like jet engines. This
can't be good for you. My
ears have gotten worse,
and I think it's from these
toilets. Do you have any
idea what the decibels
are on these new type of


Dr. Roach

toilets that make you feel
like they are trying to suck
you down also. How can
they get away with making
these toilets sound like jet
engines? B.C.
ANSWER: The
high-pressure automatic
toilets are indeed quite
loud. Peak loudness for
one brand I found was 86
decibels (dB), compared
with 71 for a standard
toilet. A 15 dB difference
might not sound like
much, but it's more than
30 times louder. Sustained
noise over 85 dB can
lead to hearing loss. I
understand that the newer
models are much quieter.
DEAR DR. ROACH:
Does taking baths versus
showers cause bacterial
vaginosis? M.E.
ANSWER: Bacterial
vaginosis is a change in
the types of bacteria that
are normally present in the
vagina. This can be asymp-
tomatic, or it can cause a
discharge or unpleasant
odor. Badths are more likely
than showers to predispose
women to BV Douching is
a clear risk factor for BV If
not symptomatic, it does
not need to be treated.
Antibiotic creams and pills
are effective for symptom-
atic women.
READERS: Many
headache questions reach
me on a regular basis. For
a general explanation of
headaches and their treat-
ment, consider the booklet
on that topic. It presents
a comprehensive view.

Beware the tipping point


Dear Heloise: I have a
hint to add to your hints
regarding preventing
TVs from toppling on
small children. This
same danger applies to
aquariums! Never let
small children near an
aquarium without close-
by adult supervision!
Unfortunately, my small
niece ran excitedly to my
aquarium, grabbed the
top edge and pulled it
over onto herself. Broken
glass, water and fish went
everywhere! Thankfully,
she was uninjured,
other than being terribly
frightened. Patsy S.,

Heloise's
low-calorie
dressing
Dear Heloise: Do
you have a recipe for
a low-calorie salad
dressing? A Reader in
Wyoming
I do have a recipe! It is
simple to make. Here is
what you need:
1 cup low-fat cottage
cheese
1/4 cup skim or low-fat
milk
1 teaspoon wine or
apple-cider vinegar
Herbs and salt and
pepper to taste
Mix the ingredients
together in a blender
for one minute or so,
and you'll have an easy,
made-at-home, low-cal-
orie dressing for all your
salads. There are a lot of
uses for vinegar in the
kitchen. I have put all


Hints from Heloise

of my favorites that will
help save you money in
a multipage pamphlet.
To order, send $5 and
a long, self-addressed,
stamped (66 cents)
envelope to: Heloise/
Vinegar, P.O. Box
795001, San Antonio, TX
78279-5001. To make a
tangy cucumber snack,
soak cucumbers in
apple-cider vinegar and
water for 10-15 minutes.
Great with a salad.
- Heloise

Present tags
Dear Heloise: My
family and I have a large
get-together during
the holidays where we
exchange presents.
With so many people,
and the gift wrap flying,
the presents often get
mixed up in the process.
I have found it helpful
to write on the present
itself who it is for and
who it is from. I write it
somewhere small and
out of the way, like the
bottom. This helps get
the presents to the right
person at the end of the
night. Sean in Texas

Husband's peace and quiet .MALLARD FILLMORE By Bruce Tinsley

makes wife feel discontent ,-


DEAR ABBY: I married
"Larry" five years ago,
and he is good to me.
I have two beautiful
grandchildren who are
my daughter's. If I don't
see them once a week
I miss them. (They are
2 1/2 and 16 months
old.) Larry doesn't miss
the babies or want to
see them once a week.
Sometimes when they
come to the house, he
doesn't speak to them or
play with them. He says
he wants his peace and
quiet at the house.
Larry's great with the
babies in public. He is
also good about playing
with our friends' kids.
But he doesn't want the
grandchildren to spend
the night here because
he doesn't want his sleep
disturbed. (He can get
up at 4 a.m. to go fishing,
though.)
He has two sons and
doesn't mind if he hears
from them only twice
a year. He's the type of
person who says what he
thinks without caring if
it's rude or hurtful. If you
don't like him, he can live
without being friends
with you. No one comes
to visit us at our home.
I miss my family, my
daughter and the babies.
Do I leave? UNHAPPY
IN THE SUNSHINE
STATE
DEAR UNHAPPY: If
you are the one making
all the concessions, make
a list of Larry's good
qualities, and then make
one that includes how he
refuses to compromise,
makes you feel lonely and
isolated, and says things
without regard to whether
they are hurtful to others.
Place them side by side,
and you will have your
answer.
DEAR ABBY: After re-
cently meeting my older
brother's male roommate,
a few things occurred that
make me wonder if my
brother is gay. Whether he
is or not doesn't matter
to me, and I don't feel
it's my business to find
out unless he chooses to
share it with me.
Although I am a strong


Dear Abby

supporter of the gay and
lesbian community, my
concern is that because
we were raised in an
extremely conservative
home, my brother may
think I still hold those be-
liefs and may be reluctant
to confide in me. I don't
want to make a wrong
assumption about his
sexuality, nor do I want
to force him out of the
closet before he's ready.
How can I let him know
I support him, no matter
what, without crossing
the line? LIBERAL GIRL
IN TEXAS
DEAR LIBERAL GIRL:
There are ways to com-
municate your feelings
to your brother without
being direct. If you are
still in school, consider
joining a gay/straight
alliance. If you see some-
thing in the news about
a gay issue, call it to his
attention and say some-
thing positive. Or, if you
think that might make
him uncomfortable,
how about giving him a
hug and telling him how
lucky you feel to have
him as a brother and that
you will love him forever?
(Come to think of it, a
straight sibling might
also appreciate hearing
it.)
DEAR ABBY: Does
being invited to an
engagement party "guar-
antee" you will also be
invited to the wedding?
-LOOKING AHEAD IN
WASHINGTON, D.C.
DEAR LOOKING
AHEAD: Yes, it does. And
for that not to happen is a
HUGE breach of etiquette
on the part of whoever
is hosting the wedding,
whether it's the bride's
parents or the couple
themselves.


"For he is our peace, who hath made both one,
and hath broken down the middle wall of partition
between us."- Ephesians 2:14
There will be no peace in the hearts of nations or
men while walls of indifference remain standing. May
the walls fall and peace like a mighty river rush in to
fill the vacuum that God intended for victorious living.

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


I HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Maybeyou'd rather
not console people today or be the designated pep
talker, but don't fight it. However ill-equipped you
may feel, you're best suited to the job.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Inquiring about feelings
is dicey you may be pushing further than the
other person wants to go. People put their emotions
into words when they are ready.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Marketers know that
people don't really buy products; they buy results


You can save yourself few bucks today by deciding
to feel a certain way without paying for it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll enjoy the
company of like minds.They're close enough that
you can see the same things as funny, awesome,
pathetic and sad.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).You may be tempted to"give
away the farm;'because, let's face it, farms are a lot
of work. Resist the urge. You should have controlling
interest in what you started and cultivated.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).You know wasteof


time-wasters go disguised as interesting discussions
that, oncejoined, lead absolutely nowhere.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Just as companies run
promotional offers to stir up interest, you'll ratchet
up your appeal by figuring out the best and most
desirable things you have to offer.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Betrayal is the breaking
of a contract of sorts.There's gray area in this regard,
because many contracts that are unspoken or
assumed are not mutual. Avoid betrayal.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are passionate


only person who can lead you is one who knows
how to connect that passion to the work before you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).You think ofthe
same person when you first wake up and when you
fall asleep tonight. This is more than a habit of mind.
It's where your heart is, too.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Draw a hard line
between business and personal relationships. You
may be in business with a loved one, and in that
case, you have two separate relationships.
PISCES (Feb.19-March 20).You may delegate


and the feelings that go along with those outcomes, time when you see one ordoyou? Sometimes about the things that are closest to your heart. The certain responsibilities, but make sure you know


exactly how all of the functions are performed
first. Also, you should be the one to maintain key
business relationships.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 19). You'll feel so
marvelous when working that being paid seems a
mere bonus compared to other benefits. Physical
improvements boost your image in January. Loved
ones will support your efforts and get out of your
way when you don't need them. You'll travel to fix
something in March. April brings a windfall. Aries
and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers
are: 45,30,4,22 and 14.

Opening lead: King of 4

Holding the worst distribution in
bridge, 4-3-3-3, North made the
sober decision to raise his partner
only to the two-level. When South
made a game try, North could not
make another conservative decision
with that hand, so he jumped to four
hearts.
West held the opening lead and
continued with a club at trick two.
South ruffed and immediately played
the ace of diamonds and another
diamond. East won and shifted to a


trump, but it was too late. South won
and played another diamond. East
won this and played another trump,
which declarer won in hand to ruff
his last diamond with dummy's
queen of trumps. South ruffed a club
back to his hand, drew the remaining
trumps and claimed the rest.
This contract might have been
defeated had West shifted to his
singleton trump at trick two. East
could then continue trumps each time
he obtained the lead in diamonds and
declarer would be left with an
unavoidable third loser in that suit.
That would leave him with four
losers one club and three
diamonds and down one in his
contract.
A great declarer could actually
make this hand on a trump shift by
West, but it would require one of the
great dummy reversals of all time.
We leave it to advanced readers to
work out the details.
West cannot really be faulted for
not finding the best shift. He was
looking at a 4-3-3-3 dummy. How
could he possibly know that the best
defense was to cut down dummy's
ruffing power?

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
