FEINBERG Butthere'sa
COLUMNIST place right here in
Southwest Florida
where two men's footprints turned 20 acres
of soil, rich with their American ingenuity,
into a historical landmark the Edison &
Ford Winter Estates.
Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, two
of the greatest brains in American history,
escaped the northern winters by vacation-
ing along the Caloosahatchee River in Fort
Myers. Edison bought land in 1885 and
built his house in 1886. He and his wife,
Mina, spent time at the Fort Myers estate
until Mina deeded it to the city for $1 in
1947. Ford bought his home in 1916.
It's quite remarkable to imagine the two
brilliant men watching sunsets, bouncing
around ideas and borrowing cups of milk
from each other. OK, they probably didn't
do that last one.
This is an especially beautiful time of
year to visit the estates, which are im-
peccably decorated for the holidays. The
inside of Edison's home is adorned with
Christmas decorations accurate to the first
half of the 1900s. The dining room table is
set to reflect Mina Edison's Christmas Eve
dinner, which included oysters and, specif-
ically, "good applesauce," said JanetWilson,
public relations/marketing coordinator for
Edison & Ford Winter Estates.
While it's closed today for Christmas, the
Estates' Holiday Nights takes place from
5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. through Jan. 4. In addi-
tion to touring the grounds, museum and
laboratory, Holiday Nights includes live
music and Clydesdale Wagon Rides for an
extra fee. The wagon rides are only offered
from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Jan. 3.
Santa is tired from last night's deliveries so
he won't be making any more appearances
this year.
There are various tour options. First-
timers may want to consider the Complete
Estates Tour, which "offers a complete
orientation and a self-guided audio tour of
the historic homes, gardens and laboratory
of the Edison and Ford families as well
as the museum. The museum contains
an impressive collection of inventions,
artifacts and special exhibits," states the
website.
"We have audio wands in different
languages as well," Janet said.
The museum is overwhelming in a good
way. It's amazing to see Edison's inventions:
the phonograph, talking doll, movie-mak-
ing equipment, dictating machine, etc.
It's also remarkable to walk around and
see the gardens, along with Edison's 1910
swimming pool.
It's recommended to give yourself at least
three hours for a tour and to explore the
grounds (I'd give yourself at least four or
five hours with a drink/meal break). There
are benches scattered around for those
who need to slow down or take a break.
There are more in-depth tours offered
as well, including a behind-the-scenes
tour and one that focuses on the beautiful
gardens and specially grown plants (some
of which Edison purposely planted for re-
search). German visitors can enjoy a tour in
German at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. Groups
also can schedule a German-language tour
by calling 239-334-7419.
For the young curious minds, there are
special tours and programs for kids (a
perfect family outing for winter break).

Hospital chain facing suits


Former CEO among whistleblowers


FORT MYERS NEWS-PRESS
STAFF REPORT
The Naples-based hospital chain
Health Management Associates
disclosed Monday that courts have
unsealed four whistleblower lawsuits,
including one filed by the former CEO
of Charlotte Regional Medical Center
in Punta Gorda, alleging the company's
hospitals violated federal laws.
The federal government also has
intervened in the lawsuits, which were
filed in U.S. district courts for the
Middle District of Florida, the Southern


District of Florida, and the Middle
District of Georgia, according to an
HMA filing with the Securities and
Exchange Commission.
The lawsuits claim that HMA hospi-
tals inappropriately admitted patients
and submitted reimbursement claims
to federal health programs. Also, they
allege HMA hospitals had inappropri-
ate financial relationships with physi-
cians and then submitted claims to the
federal government.
The Florida case, brought by Bradley
Nurkin, former CEO of the Punta Gorda
hospital, accuses the hospital company


of providing $500,000 to $800,000 of
"free office space, staff, equipment and
direct expense payments" to a doctor's
practice, Primary Care Associates of
North Port, in exchange for referring
patients to the hospitals.
From 2004 to mid-2007, Primary
Care Associates referred patients to two
HMA hospitals in Charlotte County
that accounted for one-third of both
hospitals' revenues in the period, or
more than $48 million, according to
the suit.

Stores buzz on Christmas Eve


By IAN ROSS
STAFF WRITER

Parking lots were full Tuesday. Stores
had been open for days on end.
But were people buying gifts in the
final hours?
Or is shopping late just a part of the
Christmas season?
Lisa and Marilyn McAfee were leaving
Bealls in Venice on Tuesday, but they
said they already celebrated their
Christmas at their home in Michigan
and were just out shopping during their
Englewood vacation.


"I cut back a lot (this year). I asked my
family what they wanted and some of
them said they wanted cash," Lisa said.
So that's what she got them.
For her, it makes sense. Young people
don't have a lot of money, she said, so
that's what helps them the most.
"Maybe you'll think we're not very
Christmassy," she said. "But you know
what? We're practical."
Chris Guereux, Jim Guereux and
Robyn Ellison looked like last-minute
gift buyers at first glance, carrying a
volleyball and fishing pole out of the
Venice Walmart Tuesday but they


were just on their way to the beach.
"I did all online shopping," said Chris,
who hails from Washington D.C. "It's
quick, convenient. (I) flew down here
and had everything delivered,"
Ellison, of Atlanta, on the other hand,
said "I don't do online," and had to do
some last-minute shopping. "I had to
ask strangers' advice on things -'Do
you think this guy would like this?'
... I don't mind it, though. I never do
anything ahead of time."
Eric Cook, owner of Cook's Sportland,
Inc. inVenice, said he does see a

A Punta Gorda Christmas story


By BRENDA BARBOSA
STAFF WRITER
PUNTA GORDA The cynic would
have said, "Ain't happening no way."
But the mystery man from Delaware
at the center of a major money mix-
up proved the naysayers wrong. Not
only did he return the wad of cash one
Punta Gorda waitress had given him by
accident, he tipped her for her trouble.
"I felt awful that I had given the
wrong guy the money," said Samantha
Knight, a waitress at Laishley Crab
House in Punta Gorda. "People are

STORY 112


SUN PHOTO BY
BRENDA BARBOSA
Samantha Knight received an early Christmas
present Sunday after one of her customers
returned a wad of cash she had mistakenly handed
him. The money belonged to another customer,
Chuck Behm, who was having lunch at Laishley
Crab House where Knight works as a waitress.
Behm, who was visiting from Illinois when the
incident happened, told Knight to keep the money.
"I kept asking him, 'Are you sure?'" Knight recalled.
"It blew me away.":' To thank Behm for his kind
gesture, Crab House management sent him $1,000
in gift cards that he can use at the restaurant the
next time he's in Punta Gorda.

Stolen YMCA kayaks bring community support


By GARY ROBERTS
STAFF WRITER
Editor's note: The Sun is
recapping its most com-
pelling and talked about
stories of 2013. Look for
stories to follow each day,
through Dec. 31.
PORT CHARLOTTE
- The Grinch made
an early visit to Port
Charlotte this year, when
several kayaks and a
canoe were stolen from


the YMCA summer camp
at the Dotzler Outdoor
Center.
In July, thieves cut
through the steel
cable and padlock of an
outdoor rack to remove
four kayaks and a canoe,
then broke the lock on
a storage trailer and
made off with two more
kayaks.
"It's horrible," said
Diane Roth, YMCA me-
dia director. "The kids


Best of At



2013
are really disappointed."
But the story had a
happy ending for the
summer camp's 200 kids,
ages 6-18. In the true
spirit of Christmas,
the community pulled


together to not only
replace what was taken,
but also provided a
secure storage facility to
prevent such thefts in
the future.
In less than a week,
the YMCA had received
more than 20 kayaks
and canoes to replace
the stolen watercrafts. In
addition, financial con-
tributions totaled more
than $6,000, including
$1,200 from one anony-
mous donor.
"It's just amazing what


the community has
done," said Randy Dunn,
CEO of the Charlotte
County Family YMCA.
Doctors Mark Asperilla
and David Klein
launched their own
fundraising drive in the
medical community to
purchase the shed to
lock up the watercrafts.
"As soon as we read
about it, Dr. Klein and I
were very upset. Things
like this shouldn't hap-
pen in the community,"
Dr. Asperilla said.


Dunn acknowledged
the generosity of donors
by throwing a barbecue
in their honor.
"It does my heart good
that people care this
much about the kids,"
Dunn said. "This is going
to be a summer the kids
will never forget. It's a
lesson they will remember
for a very long time. It's
worth more than anything
you could think of"
Suspects in the case
were later arrested.

Merry




Christmas



- 'Veselykh




Svyat!'


ith a heartfelt
gratitude to the
Almighty God
for graciously granting
my life and health to be
able to welcome this day
of His Only Begotten Son's
birth, my wife Katrusia, I
and wish everybody the
merriest Christmas ever.
We wish all an enjoyable
and safe holiday, good
health and loving, friend-
ly gatherings of families
and friends. Let us all,
to use the words from a
hymn of the divine liturgy
(Mass), "lay aside all cares
of life" for at least this one
day.
In our prayers, let us
not forget our men and
women in uniform, many
of whom will not be able
to enjoy a decent holiday
meal while defending
our freedom in faraway
places away from home,
and a multitude of
individuals suffering
from natural and man-
made disasters in our
country and in Syria,
South Sudan, Philippines
and many other places.
Let us not forget the
Ukrainian students and
their supporters demon-
strating in the freezing
weather in Kyiv's Maidan
against their oppressive,
tyrannical and corrupt
government.

The Ukrainian Weekly,
an English-language
newspaper published by
the Ukrainian National
Association Inc., a
nonprofit association, in
Parsippany, N.J., ran an
article in the Nov. 24 issue
titled "Sarasota: A tropical
and cultural paradise
with a vibrant Ukrainian
community." The almost
full-page article includes
three photographs: A
view of Siesta Key Beach
in Sarasota, St. Mary's
Ukrainian Catholic
Church in North Port,
and the "Ukrainians on
Parade" float at the 50th
anniversary celebration
of North Port in 2009.
This superb article was
written by Venice resident
Dr. Jurij Baranowskyj, a
member of Cpl. Roman
G. Lazor Post 40 of the
Ukrainian American
Veterans, St. Mary'
Ukrainian Catholic Parish
and other organizations.
He is also in charge of
public relations for the
Men's Social Club based
in Sarasota.


After describing
the "beautiful, white,
sandy beaches," Dr.
Baranowskyj goes on
to describe the many
cultural offerings, "the
fast-growing city of North
Port" that is "home to
a vibrant and active
Ukrainian community"
with "social and cultural
clubs, and established
churches of the Catholic,
Orthodox, Pentecostal
and other Christian
denominations." After
continuing with detailed
descriptions of the
"diverse area with big-city
amenities," the state of
Florida's 500th anniversa-
ry, etc., Dr. Baranowskyj
writes, "So, baby boom-
ers, empty-nesters,
retirees, come to Sarasota
- to vacation, to work,
to build, to live part-year,
full-year or retire."
Dr. Baranowskyj
deserves thanks and
congratulations for
writing the article, and
The Ukrainian Weekly for
publishing it.

is recapping its most
compelling and talked
about stories of 2013. Look
for stories to follow each
day, through Dec. 31.
NORTH PORT -
Lamarque Elementary
School's smelly saga
continues.
The North Port school
has been plagued with a
mysterious, "sewer-like"
odor since it opened in
2006, but 2013 saw the
school's negative profile
skyrocket after more
teachers, students and
staff reported suffering
from ongoing ill health
effects.
The Sarasota County
School District, in an ef-
fort to get in front of neg-
ative rumors about the
school that were quickly
spreading on social me-
dia outlets like Facebook,
held an impromptu press
conference in November
to report that while a
"handful" of teachers
suffered from "allergy-like
symptoms," the school
was essentially a safe
environment.
Both Superintendent


Lori White and Director of
Facilities Jody Dumas in-
sist that repeated testing
has shown the school was
not built using tainted
Chinese or American dry-
wall which can cause
respiratory problems like
asthma attacks, coughing
and difficulty breathing,
as well as headaches and
sinus issues and the
odor at the school is not
harmful.
Parents disagreed.
The school district
and possibly the drywall
manufacturer could find
themselves subjected to
lawsuits next year, as at
least one parent, Jennifer
Coppola, is weighing
her litigation options.
Coppola is one of many


parents who believe
the school district put
their children in harm's
way, and have not done
enough to inform parents
of the ongoing testing
and work at Lamarque.
Coppola recently
contacted the Sarasota-
based Mallard Law Firm,
who told the Sun last
week they are in the early
stages of an investigation
to determine if they
should file a lawsuit on
behalf of Coppola, and
possibly other parents.
The school district has
spent $100,000 a year
since 2006 to try to solve
the issues at Lamarque,
according to records,
and could spend nearly
$500,000 in 2013.


JL-DL UI -,b 'y


shared.
An anonymous com-
plaint from a school
employee started the
ball rolling on the federal
level, and now the CDC is
reviewing information in
an attempt to figure out if
they should step in.
However it plays out,
Lamarque Elementary

Protecting the holidays


By PAUL FALLON
SUN CORRESPONDENT

PUNTA GORDA-
Punta Gorda firefighter
John Briggs doesn't em-
brace leaving his family to
work Christmas Day, but
the father of four said it's
just necessary.
"No one wants to have
to call 911 on Christmas,"
Briggs said. "So when
they do, it's normally
pretty serious."
Emergencies never take
a holiday, and that is why
first-responders around
the country head into
work on Christmas.
Briggs, 47, of Punta
Gorda is a battalion
chief at the city fire
department.
This isn't the first
time Briggs has worked
Christmas. The 21-year
veteran of the Punta
Gorda Fire Department
has worked numerous
holidays during his more
than two decades of
service to the community.
Briggs has two grown
children who are 21 and
22. He also has an 11- and
7-year-old, he said.
However, his children
and his wife understand
why he has to head out to
work on the holiday.
Of course, Briggs isn't
the only firefighter or
police officer or emer-
gency worker spending
Christmas day working. It
is happening in every city.
The Punta Gorda
firefighters are working a
24-hour shift that starts at
8 a.m. today.
Kaitlin McCausland,
28, of Port Charlotte is a
paramedic and firefighter
with Punta Gorda. She
has been a firefighter for
seven years.
She, like Briggs, has
worked Christmas before,
so she knows what to
expect.
Unlike Briggs, she has
no children. But working
the holiday is still diffi-
cult, she said.
Not being with her
family, which includes
her brother's new child,
will be the hardest part
of working the holiday,
McCausland said.
"It's going to be the
baby's first Christmas,"
she added.
However, she and her
family will celebrate the
holiday on a day that she
does not have to work,
she said.
But just because the
crew is spending the
holiday away from home
does not mean they are
completely without the
comforts associated with
the season, McCausland
said.
"We're going to have
dinner here," she added
with a smile. "But we
can always get called out
when we're cooking or
eating."
Briggs planned to cook
a stand-up rib roast, he
said. Some of his family
members will also come
into the station to eat and
maybe open a present or
two, Briggs said.
Firefighter and emer-
gency medical technician
Rhett Anderson's wife will
also be at the station for
dinner. Like McCausland,
Anderson has been with
the Punta Gorda Fire
Department for seven
years. However, he has
worked in the medical
field for 23 years, and
working on Christmas has
become "a way of life for
him," he said.

Natasha Boothe sits at her desk at the county's communications
center. Boothe is one of the dispatchers working at the center
today.


Firefighters with the Punta Gorda Fire Department pose in front
of a Christmas tree at Station 1. The firefighters are three of
four who are working at the station today. Pictured, from left,
Kaitlin McCausland, Rhett Anderson and John Briggs.


"My boys expect it," he
said.
Anderson, 42, of
Punta Gorda, worked
last Christmas, and his
stepdaughter was curious
as to why Santa Claus
came to her stepfather's
house on Christmas Eve
and her father's home on
Christmas, he said.
Although Anderson
admits it is difficult to
work during the holiday,
he pointed out that every
emergency responder
took an oath to serve the
community through thick
and thin.
"In our hearts, would
we like to have the
day off?" he asked.
'Absolutely.
"But when someone
dials those three num-
bers (911), they expect
someone to be there to
answer," he added.
Both Anderson and
McCausland pointed out
that although they are
not spending the day
with their families, they
are spending time with
their second family, their
co-workers.
"We joke, we laugh and
we hang out," Anderson
said. "But when we get a
call we're there to make a
difference."
Firefighters aren't the
only first-responders
working on Christmas.
Natasha Boothe is a
public safety operator
who dispatches for fire,
ambulance and police.
She and her co-workers
are working 12-hour
shifts today.
Boothe has been
handling calls for the
first-responders for about
three years. She believes
she has worked every
Christmas during that
time, she said.

Gorda resident, who has
no children, said it was
not difficult for her to
work on Christmas.
"Even if I wasn't sched-
uled, I'd volunteer to take
someone else's shift so
they could be home with
their family," Boothe said.
Cpl. Corey Schaefer
of the Charlotte County
Sheriff's Office was sched-
uled to be out on the road
patrolling like he does on
a typical day.
Schaefer has been
working for the Sheriff's
Office for over 18 years.
He has three children
ranging in age from 9 to
17, but has worked on
Christmas "numerous
times."
Like Boothe, Schaefer
said he would have likely
volunteered to work for
the officers with younger
children if he had not
been scheduled to work
Christmas.
Schaefer added that
it is important for area
residents to see a police
presence on Christmas.
"We want people to see
our cars, because if they
see us they know we're
out keeping them safe,"
he said.

I OUR VIEW

Yes, Viginia,

there is a

Santa Claus

I n 1897, a young girl turned
to the local newspaper,
the New York Sun, for
answers after her friends told
her there was no Santa Claus.
The paper's response, written by
Francis P Church, has become
the most reprinted editorial in
the history of publishing. Be-
low is that letter and the Sun's
response.

Dear Editor:
I am 8 years old. Some of
my little friends say that there
is no Santa Claus. Papa says
"If you see it in the Sun, it is
so." Please tell me the truth, is
there a Santa Claus?
Virginia O'Hanlon

Virginia:
Your little friends are wrong.
They have been affected by the
skepticism of a skeptical age.
They do not believe except
what they see. They think that
nothing can be which is not
comprehensible by their little
minds.
All minds, Virginia, whether
they be men's or children's,
are little. In this great universe
of ours, man is a mere insect,
an ant, in his intellect, as
compared with the boundless
world about him, as measured
by the intelligence capable of
grasping the whole of truth and
knowledge.
Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa
Claus. He exists as certainly
as love and generosity and
devotion exist, and you know
that they abound and give to
our life its highest beauty and
joy.
Alas! How dreary would
be the world if there were
no Santa Claus! It would be
as dreary as if there were no
Virginias. There would be no
childlike faith then, no poetry,
no romance to make tolerable
this existence. We should have
no enjoyment, except in sense
and sight. The eternal light
with which childhood fills the
world would be extinguished.
Not believe in Santa Claus?
You might as well not believe
in fairies! You might get your
Papa to hire men to watch all
the chimneys on Christmas Eve
to catch Santa Claus, but even
if they did not see Santa Claus
coming down, what would that
prove?
Nobody sees Santa Claus,
but that is no sign that there is
no Santa Claus The most real
things in the world are those
that neither children nor men
can see.
Did you ever see fairies
dancing on the lawn? Of course
not, but that's no proof that
they are not there. Nobody can
conceive or imagine all the
wonders that are unseen and
unseeable in the world.
You tear apart the baby's
rattle and see what makes the
noise inside, but there is a veil
covering the unseen world
which not the strongest man,
or even the united strength
of all the strongest men that
ever lived, could tear apart.
Only faith, fancy, poetry, love,
romance, can push aside that
curtain and view and picture
the supernatural beauty and
glory beyond.
Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in
all this world there is nothing
else as real and abiding.
No Santa Claus? Thank God
he lives and he lives forever. A
thousand years from now, may-
be 10 times 10,000 years from
now, he will continue to make
glad the hearts of children.


LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

Fire department
helped with alarm
Editor:
I want to say a big thank
you to the North Port firemen
who came to my rescue on
Thanksgiving Day when my
fire alarm kept sounding off
from a low battery and I was
unable to silence it.
I have lived in North Port
for 20 years, and I doubt any
city has more thoughtful,
gracious fire or policemen
and women. Thank you again.

Cogent conversation starters, compliments of colleges


fishing for a way
to obscure the red
state/blue state
divide at your holiday table?
Seeking to steer conversa-
tion away from Obamacare?
Anxious not to antagonize the
in-laws? Fear not. Help has ar-
rived in the form of this year's
college application essays. The
current subject of angst for
American high school seniors
might provide fodder for your
Christmas Eve confab.
Last weekend brought news
for those who applied early.
Applicants who have been
offered admission at their first
choice are finished. But for the
recipients of bad news, and
the remainder who did not ap-
ply early, they are in the throes
of meeting a Jan. 1 deadline,
which includes answering
essay questions.
The five choices that
accompany the Common
Application are not conversa-
tion starters. (They include:
"Recount an incident or
time when you experienced
failure"; "Reflect on a time
when you challenged a belief
or idea"; and "Describe a place
or environment where you are
perfectly content.") Better ma-
terial comes from the individ-
ual supplemental questions


Michael Smerconish
Philadelphia Inquirer



asked by some schools.
How about a toast inspired
by the University of Virginia,
which asks, "To tweet or not to
tweet?"
During dinner, if you're
looking to spark storytelling,
you can offer one of Stanford's
inquiries and give your guests
more latitude than the 50
words afforded for the written
reply: "What were your favor-
ite events (e.g., performances,
exhibits, sporting events, etc.)
this past year?" Or, "What
historical moment or event
do you wish you could have
witnessed?"
Holy Cross has a great topic
for grandparents: "What's
the best advice you've ever
received?"
If those sound too back-
ward-looking, and you want to
include the younger genera-
tion, why not invoke this one
from Penn State's Schreyer
Honors College: "A 'bucket
list' is a list of things that you
would like to accomplish
during your lifetime. Please
tell us a few of the things that


might be on your bucket list
and explain why they are im-
portant to you to accomplish."
If your gathering is more
highbrow, there is always Tufts
University's: "The ancient
Romans started it when they
coined the phrase Carpe diem.
Jonathan Larson proclaimed,
'No day but today!' and most
recently, Drake explained, 'You
Only Live Once (YOLO).' Have
you ever seized the day? Lived
like there was no tomorrow?
Or perhaps you plan to shout
YOLO while jumping into
something in the future. What
does .YOLO mean to you?"
MIT notified its early
applicants of their fate on
12:14 p.m. on 12/14. As part
of their application process,
students had to answer this:
"We know you lead a busy
life, full of activities, many of
which are required of you. Tell
us about something you do
simply for the pleasure of it."
Another winner is Berkeley's
Haas School of Business': "If
you could choose one song
that expresses who you are,
what is it and why?"
I asked Jane Feldgus, an
attorney-turned-essayist, to
survey the field and pick her
favorite. She immediately
identified the University of


Wisconsin's: "What goes unno-
ticed in your life?" ("As soon
as I answer that question, it is
no longer unnoticed," Feldgus
observed.) She also singled
out my alma matter, Lehigh
University, which this year is
offering five options, includ-
ing: "What's your Bazinga
moment?" Great dinner dis-
cussion, assuming everyone
has watched "The Big Bang
Theory" on CBS.
I'd recommend you save the
University of Chicago's fare for
dessert. The Windy City insti-
tution has earned a reputation
for producing provocative
essay questions ("They can
be approached with utter
seriousness, complete fancy,
or something in between,"
reads the application), and
this year's were inspired by
current students.
Florence Chan, from the
Class of 2015, proposed:
"How are apples and oranges
supposed to be compared?"
(Possible answers involve, but
are not limited to, statistics,
chemistry, physics, linguistics
and philosophy.)
But my favorite of all the
application essay topics, at least
for dinner conversation, is this:

Rotf Iffe.S-ifE ium'i










The Gospel according to Mary Magdalene


ne Sunday morn-
ing a few weeks
ago, Hal Taussig,
co-pastor of the Chest-
nut Hill United Church
in Philadelphia, chose
one of his favorite bits
of scripture to build his
sermon upon. It's called
The Thanksgiving Prayer,
and the portion of it that
Taussig chose goes like
this:
"0 light of life we have
known you/
0 womb of all that
grows we have known
you/
0 womb pregnant with
the nature of the Father
we have known you/
0 never-ending
endurance of the Father
who gives birth, so we
worship your goodness."
If you are thinking that
you've never come across
such a prayer in the New
Testament, you're right,
of course. The prayer
was part of a treasure
trove of early Christian
documents, written in
Coptic, discovered in
Nag Hammadi, Egypt, in
1945. The Nag Hammadi


Joe Nocera
New York Times


find was, in turn,
among the 75-plus early
Christian documents that
have been unearthed
over the last century and
a half. Collectively, these
works were once known
as The Gnostic Gospels,
and they were viewed
by many theologians
as the work of early
Christian heretics, as
their interpretation of
the life of Jesus was often
quite different from the
one recounted in the
four gospels of the New
Testament.
In addition to his
responsibilities at the
church in Philadelphia,
however, Taussig is a
professor of biblical
literature at Union
Theological Seminary
in New York. One of
his areas of expertise
is those early Christian
texts that are not part
of the New Testament.


Along with Karen King of
Harvard Divinity School
and others, he has cham-
pioned the idea that the
Gnostic Gospels were
not necessarily heretical
but rather were an
example of the diversity
of thought and ideas that
Christians were grap-
pling with in the first
and second centuries.
Many of the academics
who study these texts
no longer use the term
gnosticc" because of its
connotation of heresy.
What's more, Taussig
believes that many of
these texts are, in their
own way, scriptural, as
worthy of meditation
and prayer as the texts
in the 27 books of the
New Testament. He often
preaches from the early
Christian texts. And in
February 2012, he and
a group of nationally
known spiritual leaders
and scholars got togeth-
er in New Orleans to
conduct an interesting
exercise: to choose texts
that might integrate well
with the New Testament


itself. They chose 10 of
them, and the results
were published in a
book titled "A New New
Testament." This year,
the book landed on my
desk, which is how I
stumbled across Taussig
and his work.
Those early Christian
texts can seem quite
astonishing. Several
of them are told from
the point of view of
a woman, something
that is not true of any
of the New Testament.
The Gospel of Mary, for
instance, tells the story of
Mary Magdalene, "who
is portrayed as one of
Jesus's closest associ-
ates," as Taussig writes in
an introduction to that
gospel, and has been
given teachings from
Jesus that she passes on
to his male disciples. A
second book that is writ-
ten mostly in the female
voice is "The Thunder:
Perfect Mind." A poetic
work, what is particularly
amazing about it is that
the female voice is that
of the deity Herself.


Another book, The
Gospel of Thomas, has
no narrative at all; it is,
instead, a collection of
114 of Jesus' sayings,
some of which are
familiar and many of
which are not. In "A
New New Testament,"
Taussig and the other
spiritual leaders decided
to place it in front of the
four traditional gospels
because, as Taussig
writes, "it is a near
perfect example of how
these additional books
offer both ... strong
connections to the tra-
ditional New Testament
and eye-popping new
content not previously
known."
One point Taussig and
other academics make
is that we really have
no idea why certain
books are in The New
Testament and others
are not. "The making of
the New Testament took
500 years," Taussig told
me, who also notes that
we have no idea, in fact,
who wrote many of the
books that make up the


New Testament or
the early Christian texts.
What is almost surely
true is that they were not
written by Luke or Mark
- or Mary Magdalene,
for that matter. Even
the earliest of them was
written decades, if not
centuries, after Jesus'
life. The matter of heresy
came centuries later as
well.
In his sermon about
The Thanksgiving Prayer,
Taussig used it to offer a
meditation on the diffi-
culties of both societal
and personal growth.
"There is a womb preg-
nant with divinity itself,"
he said as he neared the
end of his sermon, "mak-
ing us ready for taking
that next step forward,
in the relationship that is
hurting, the psyche that
doesn't know what to
do, and the society that
needs help."
Scripture indeed.
Merry Christmas.

Continued economic recovery for 2014 and beyond


he economic signs
continue to make
me optimistic for
2014 and beyond. As
reported, property values
increased for the first
time in many years. Cur-
rent housing sales and
pricing continue to be
strong with new housing
construction also on the
rise. Charlotte County
tourist tax collections
were up 6 percent for
FY 2013 over FY 2012.
These are all factors
with a positive impact
on our revenue position
for 2014.

Sales tax
A very important proj-
ect for 2014 is to provide


factual information
about the 1-cent sales tax
extension which will be a
referendum on the ballot
in 2014. The referen-
dum is for the voters to
consider extending the
1-cent sales tax program,
which has produced over
$300 million dollars since
passage of the first pro-
gram in 1994. Just a few
of the projects funded by


past sales tax extension
include all three regional
parks, the Justice Center,
Mid-County Library, the
original county jail, and
road projects that in-
clude Veterans, Midway,
Edgewater, Burnt Store
and Gasparilla. All these
road projects result in
widening from two lanes
to four.

Cheney Brothers
Cheney Brothers is
set to break ground for
their new distribution
center in the spring of
2014. The site for the new
distribution center is in
front of the Emergency
Operations Center facing
Interstate 75. What a


great opportunity for
Charlotte County to have
Cheney join our com-
munity it is estimated
they will bring at least
350 new jobs to our area.

Employee of
the Year
As the public edu-
cation spokesperson
for Charlotte County
Fire/EMS, innovation
and partnership are
the name of the game
when it comes to Dee
Hawkins-Garland. With
staff reductions, budget
cuts, and the economic
downturn, she has found
ways to continue to edu-
cate the public in public
safety through grants


and partnerships. Dee
has the highest integrity
in her job performance,
delivers public service
on an ongoing basis and
is devoted to outreach
programs that make a
difference in the com-
munity. Congratulations
and thank you, Dee, for
all you do for the citizens
of Charlotte County.

Future vision
As I have stated many
times this year, we have
become very adept at
managing crises and
now we are taking on
the challenge of shaping
the future we want to be
a part of. Our mission
declares we are "to be


the energy in making
Charlotte County a beau-
tiful and enriching place
to live." The 2013/14-
2014/15 budget process
was a big step in that
direction. The Board of
County Commissioners
showed true leadership
in giving the organization
60-plus specific goals to
address. The organiza-
tion provided innovative
yet practical approaches
toward seeing these goals
accomplished, and we
work towards that every
day.

marked change in
shoppers' behavior as
Christmas draws nearer.
Most of the shoppers he
saw on Christmas Eve
came into the store with
a mission.
"They're buyers
instead of lookers," he
said Tuesday. "Last week
you got both, but today,
no one's looking."


Along with cash, gift
cards are another pop-
ular option for flexible
gifting.
Eyeballing the gift
cards atWalgreens in
North Port on Tuesday
morning, Ruth Marino
wanted to be done with
her last-minute shop-
ping by 10 a.m.
"I almost made it," she
said. "I'm shopping for
the people on my list
that I forgot."
Marino said she felt
a little rushed this year


since Thanksgiving was
later than usual.
"I did a lot of my shop-
ping on Black Friday,"
she said. "With the
stores opening earlier on
Thanksgiving, I got a lot
done."
Many stores in North
Port were steady with
customers but not
rushed. The longest
lines in the city were for
McDonalds and Alvero's
Family Restaurant for a
late breakfast.
Port Charlotte also


saw its share of shoppers
out and about Tuesday.
At the Target on
Tamiami Trail, the park-
ing lot was mostly empty
around 9 a.m. an hour
after the store opened.
Kimberlee McCarren,
59, said that's part of
her Christmas shopping
strategy.
"Look around, there's no
one here," she said. 'And
it's just a woman thing this
time of year cleaning
the house, decorating and
last-minute shopping."


McCarren was with
her daughter, Amy
Edlefson, 35. They said
most of their shopping
was complete, but they
were looking for stock-
ing stuffers.
Edlefson is a school-
teacher in Michigan. Her
break for the holidays
didn't begin until Friday
and she spent the week-
end driving with her
family over 1,200 miles
to Port Charlotte.
"It's been crazy up
until now," said Edlefson.


"I'm just now finding
some time off (to shop)."
Store team leader
Laura Epperly said the
Target wouldn't remain
quiet for long.
"We're always busy
these last few days," she
said. "But it's always
fun to help customers
complete their lists."

STORY

always dropping money,
leaving money, or leaving
too much money. I never
in a million years expected
that he would come back."
It all started around
lunchtime on Dec. 17.
Knight was working a
double that day. She had
closed out her last two
tables and was getting
ready for the dinner shift
when she noticed a clump
of money on the floor.
Believing it belonged
to the customer seated
at her outdoor table,
she approached the
man and, handing him
the money, asked if it
belonged to him. The
man, whose name she
never did get, said it
was. He put the cash in
his pocket, thanked her
and walked out.
Turns out, he was the
wrong customer.
"I can tell you what my
customers ate, what they
drank, how much the bill
was, but I can't always tell
you what they look like,"
Knight said. "I thought it
was the right person."
As it happened, the
rightful owner of the
money, 58-year-old retired
former public works
director Chuck Behm,
of Illinois, had already


left the restaurant when
Knight handed the wrong
guy his money. Behm,
who was getting ready to
head back to Illinois with
$1,000 cash in his pocket
for the long car ride home,
was at the restaurant that
day having lunch with
friends. He was on the tail
end of what he calls his
"Chevy Chase golfing trip"
-a 10-day trek across
Florida he does each year
with a group of buddies.
It wasn't until after the
friends had left the restau-
rant that Behm realized
his money was missing.
The next day, Behm's
friend called the restau-
rant asking if Knight had
found the currency.
"I said, 'Yeah, I gave
it back to him,'" Knight
recalled. "That's when I
realized I gave it to the
wrong guy."
The police were called
and a report was written
but no further action was
taken because "it wasn't a
criminal matter," Knight
said.
Luckily, the restaurant
has a surveillance camera
that captured Knight
handing the wrong man
the money. Behm decided
to call a local television
station to see if the man
in the video would come
forward with the money.
Sure enough, he did.
On Sunday, five days
after the incident and


BUIN

Monday- Friday 10 a.m.- 6 p.m.; Saturday 10:30 -4 p.m.


shortly after a family
member spotted the man's
face on the surveillance
video on the nightly news,
the money was returned
to Knight.
The man explained that
he had been Christmas
shopping that day and
also was carrying a large
sum of money, Knight
explained. He assumed
it had fallen out of his
pocket.
"He said, 'I'm sorry. It
was all a misunderstand-
ing,'" Knight recalled.
He gave her a $100 tip
for her trouble.
For Behm, the incident
- distressing as it was
- has a happy ending.
Knight, who is 25 weeks
pregnant, was so upset
after realizing what she
had done she broke down
in tears.
"She just took it so
hard," Behm said. "Good
people like that, that's
what hit my heart. She
really cared and so did
the store manager."
"I'm not a rich guy.
A thousand is a lot of
money but at the same
time it's not," he added.
"It's not going to make a
difference in my life. But
it would make a differ-
ence in her life."
Behm decided to give
Knight the money.
Now, his good deed
has been broadcast
across the country. This
week, he appeared on
"Good Morning America"
Sunday morning, ABC
in Chicago and a host
of local news stations.
The Laishley Crab House
has even gifted him with
$1,000 worth of gift cards
to use at the restaurant
when he returns next
year.
"My friends laugh at
me because every trip,
something happens. I
always come back with
stories," Behm said. "I've
been having a lot of fun
with this. I'm glad it had a
happy ending."

Charlotte eyeing boat-race plans


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
Editor's note: The Sun
is recapping its most
compelling and talked
about stories of 2013. Look
for stories to follow each
day, through Dec. 31.
MURDOCK -Planning
kicked into high gear in
2013 for the first Char-
lotte Harbor Super Boat
Grand Prix in April.
"This is very important
to me that we get this
right," Charlotte County
Commission Chairman
Chris Constance said.
Commissioners had


Best of



2013
several meetings with or-
ganizers in 2013 to stage
festivities at Englewood
Beach, and high-power
boat races off Stump Pass
State Park and Englewood
Beach, April 11-13, 2014.
Working with county
staff, Jerry York, president
of the organizing group,
presented commission-
ers with an analysis in


September showing
that two public beaches
provide enough space
for at least 30,000 specta-
tors which addressed
a major concern of
commissioners.
The boat race and
events will be advertised
as a "no-parking event"
on Manasota Key. York
presented a draft for a
parking plan, in which he
explained how organizers
secured enough parking
in the Englewood area
to bus people onto
Manasota Key. The plan
also included estimates
of the times for buses to

transport people from the
parking lots to Englewood
Beach.
And the planning
continues.
With parking lots
expected to be opened
at 7 a.m., Commissioner
Ken Doherty asked York if
the transportation plans
took into account that
the event might see a
"rush hour" of spectators
arriving. Constance and
Commissioner Stephen
R. Deutsch expressed
concerns about people
driving onto Manasota
Key and dropping pas-
sengers off at Englewood
Beach; then there are bi-
cyclists and motorcyclists
heading to the beach.
Constance also asked
about shuttling people
back to their vehicles at
the end of the day.
"We're looking more


at the big elephant right
now," York said. He said
planning is not yet at a
point where "all the T's are
crossed and I's dotted."
He provided a timeline to
show when detailed plan-
ning will be completed.
Afterward, York said,
"I think we covered the
(major points) well."
Charlotte County
Sheriff's Lt. Darrell
Caparo, District 1 com-
mander in Englewood,
said the CCSO also still
is working on emergency
plans and other details of
its plans for the race.
Constance was the
lone commissioner who
dissented when the
commission agreed to
allocate up to $250,000
over two years for the
boat race. Despite any
objections he had,
Constance said he wants

Info for a merry Christmas


By CHRISTY FEINBERG
SENIOR WRITER
Merry Christmas!
Hopefully, Santa rewarded
your good behavior and
your living room floor is
now covered in shag rugs
made of brightly-colored,
glittery crumples of
wrapping paper, open
boxes and plastic that once
restrained newly-freed
Transformers and Barbie
dolls.
The kids may be playing
with new toys all day. The
husband may be trying to
figure out his new gadget.
The wife maybe scratch-
ing her head, wondering
why her husband thought
she'd like a low-cut
sweater when she really
wanted a sentimental
Pandora charm. The dog
may be scratching his
head, plotting how he can
sneak wads of wrapping


paper into his bed.
Fruitcakes and figgy
pudding will be had (likely
by very few) and loved
ones maybe arriving soon.
With that in mind, here's
what you need to know
today:
Is there a parade on TV
this morning?
Yes. The Disney Parks
Christmas Day Parade will
be held at 10 a.m. on ABC.
What NBA games are on
today?
Noon on ESPN:
Chicago Bulls vs. Brooklyn
Nets
2:30 p.m. on ABC:
Oklahoma City Thunder
vs. NewYork Knicks
5 p.m. on ABC: Miami
Heat vs. L.A. Lakers
8 p.m. on ESPN:
Houston Rockets vs. San
Antonio Spurs
10:30 p.m. on ESPN:
L.A. Clippers vs. Golden


State Warriors
I love Christmas, and all
the cheesy movies. When/
where can I watch the
best Christmas movies?
S'A Christmas Story,"
8 a.m., 10 a.m., noon,

are they now?" 6 p.m. on
TVGN
"National Lampoons
Christmas Vacation,"
1 p.m. and 9 p.m. onABC
Family
Can I recycle my
wrapping paper and
tissue?
If you live in Charlotte
County Punta Gorda and
in North Port, yes.
If you live in Sarasota
County, no, unless the
paper is all white.
If you live in DeSoto
County, yes, but all


recycling must be brought
to the landfill.
What should I do with
my once-live Christmas
tree?
In Charlotte/Sarasota
County: Remove orna-
ments, tinsel and lights. If
the tree is taller than 6 feet,
cut it in half and place at
the curb.
In Punta Gorda: Remove
ornaments, etc., and place
at your curb on your next
regular yard waste pickup
day.
In North Port: Remove
decorations, nails, and
wires, and cut down to
4-foot sections.
In DeSoto County: Take
off the lights, ornaments
and tinsel, and put it at
the curb on your normal
garbage day.
What new movies open
locally today in theaters?
"Justin Bieber's Believe


(insert eye roll here)," "47
Ronin," "TheWolf ofWall
Street," "Grudge Match,"
and "The Secret Life of
Walter Mitty" That cer-
tainly is not in any order of
expected greatness.
My Christmas has
turned into a wild party.
Is there a way to get home
safely?
Yes. Stay out of police
beat and call 855-2-TOW-
2-GO or 855-286-9246.
AAA Two to Go will take
you and your vehicle to
a safe location within a
10-mile radius. Keep this

Report: Man scales tower, steals copper


NOKOMIS -Theodore
Slavin allegedly pulled a
Spiderman act earlier this
month, scaling a local
cellphone tower in order
to steal copper wiring to
sell for scrap and causing
$6,000 of damage in the
process, according to the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office.
Slavin, 29, of the
500 block of Orange
Blossom Lane, Nokomis,
was charged with theft of

Patrol, jail and fire records. Not every arrest leads to a conviction and guilt or innocence is
determined by the court system.


copper, burglary, pos-
session of burglary tools,
dealing in stolen property
and possession of a con-
trolled substance, a report
states, after the alleged
burglary in the 1900 block
of Tamiami Trail.
The report states that


recent thefts at the cell
tower prompted engi-
neers to put the tower
under surveillance, and
around 10 a.m. Dec.
6 engineers phoned
authorities to report
that an alarm had been
tripped to alert them that


someone was scaling the
tower.
Authorities responded
with K-9 units. They could
not turn up a suspect, but
they did locate a backpack
containing burglary tools,
the report states. A photo of
the man climbing the tower
was provided to authorities
and they were able to rec-
ognize him as Slavin, who
previously worked climbing
cell- phone towers, the
report states.


He was located at his
Orange Blossom Lane
home on Dec. 22, accord-
ing to the report, where
he was taken into custody.
Prior to being arrested
he had allegedly stolen
alprazolam, a generic
form of Xanax, from his
mother.
Slavin was transported
to the Sarasota County
Jail, where he remains on
$32,000 bond. According
to the report, Slavin


scrapped 34 pounds of
high-grade copper wire on
Dec. 7, one day after the
burglary.

The Charlotte County Sheriff's
Office reported the following
arrest:
Raeniessia Lenea Thomas, 23,
1700 block of Gore Court, Sarasota.
Charges: two counts of violation of
probation. Bond: none.

The Edison & Ford Winter Estates are decorated for the holidays
with antiques from the time period in which the two great
minds spent time in Fort Myers.


Edison and Ford must have
enjoyed sunsets like this one
at their Winter Estates on the
Caloosahatchee River.


There are many Christmas
trees decorated at the
Edison & Ford Winter Estates,
including this one that, of
course, has ornaments shaped
like lightbulbs.


The inside of the homes at
the Edison & Ford Winter
Estates also are decorated
for the holidays. This dining
room is set for Mina Edison's
real Christmas Eve dinner to
include oysters and "good
applesauce;' as she expected.


Edison's Laboratory is one of the most interesting places at the
Edison & Ford Winter Estates. It's remarkable to think about all
his inventions, and how he worked on some of them right here
in Southwest Florida.


Take a close look at the
Christmas trees around the
Edison & Ford Winter Estates.
The trees will remain visible as
part of Holiday Nights, which
runs through Jan. 4.

Health care site put to the test

Americans rushed to beat Tuesday's extended deadline


By CARLA K. JOHNSON
AP MEDICAL WRITER
CHICAGO -The govern-
ment's revamped health care
website was put to its biggest test
yet as a record-breaking surge
of Americans rushed to beat
Tuesday's extended deadline for
signing up for coverage.
After a disastrous, glitch-
plagued rollout in October,
healthcare.gov, the website
where people in 36 states can
shop for insurance, received
nearly 2 million visits Monday
and handled the traffic well, the
government said.
Monday was the sign-up
deadline for people wanting


coverage at the start of the new
year. But the Obama administra-
tion pushed back the deadline a
day to deal with expected heavy
traffic from procrastinators.
The grace period was the
latest in a series of delays that
have marked President Barack
Obama's health care overhaul.
Critics of the law seized on the
extension as more evidence that
the program is in trouble.
"The amazing, ever-expanding
deadline? It's clearly a sign of
desperation by the adminis-
tration to do everything they
can to increase the number of
people signing up," said health

Family celebrates

3 heart transplants


By GILLIAN FLACCUS
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
SAN MARCOS, Calif.-
Deanna Kremis remembers
the exhilarating day her
young sons first had the
energy to race each other
up a flight of stairs.
The brothers, then ages
7 and 10, could barely
walk before having heart
transplants just a month
apart. As they flew up the
steps two at a time, jostling
and shouting, she recalled,
"my friend turned to me
and said, Are YOU ready to
get one now?'"
It was a joke that became
prophesy. Her health, too,
was slipping away because
of the same inherited
cardiac condition. By the
time she received her own
transplant in July, her heart
was so weak she fainted


while walking down the
hall, collapsed mid-sen-
tence and passed out in
the middle of dinner at a
friend's house.
Her decline was terrifying
for her sons, who were just
beginning to embrace their
lives with donor hearts
and now saw their worst
memories reflected in
their mother's struggle. All
three have hypertrophic
cardiomyopathy, a genetic
condition that causes the
heart muscle to thicken
until it can't pump properly.
Kremis' mother and brother
also have it, as did her
grandmother.
"We just didn't like seeing
her go through the pain and
stuff," said Trevin, now 13.
"We knew what it felt like."

Veterans return


to streets to reach


the homeless


*By KEVIN FREKING
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
CONCORD, Mass. Not
far from where the Boston
Massacre helped sow the seeds
for the RevolutionaryWar,
AP PHOTOS David Dyer points toward the
Moore, underpass where he'd score
eet team crack cocaine by day and the
train depot where he'd sleep
some nights.
Now, he has a family, a home
and a job helping homeless
veterans get off the streets, like
he did.
Dyer is part of a team of vet-
erans, some formerly homeless
themselves, that the state of
Massachusetts has hired to get
veterans off the streets in the
Boston area. Typically, they
spend one day a week roaming
the city's storefronts, alleys
and shelters, which is what he
was doing one recent morning
outside Boston's South Station.
yne Tillman, "I guess you could call this my
Services home for about a month," he
reminisced.
The rest of the week is spent
making sure those who have
found housing are staying the
course. The Veterans Affairs
Department, which funds the
effort, is considering doubling
the size of the team in the
coming year.
President Barack Obama's
administration has pledged to
eliminate homelessness among
veterans by the end of 2015.
And while the rate has been
dropping, time is running short.
So communities such
as Boston are aggressively
of Veterans hitting the streets with offers
shelter in of housing, treatment and
that the state hope. Using formerly homeless
oston area. veterans such as Dyer and


team leader Christopher Doyle
helps them make inroads with
a community that often is dis-
trustful of people who haven't
experienced what they've been
through.
"When they say, 'Oh, you don't
know what I'm talking about,'
I can say, 'Yeah, I do, because I
was there myself,'" said Doyle,
who at one point lived in aVA
homeless shelter with about 180
other veterans before landing a
job with the state.
e
James Harrington appears to
be one of the program's success
stories.
Harrington estimates that
he was homeless for nearly a
dozen years. At first, he said,
he lived in vacant apartment
complexes that were under
construction. Then he spent
most of his nights at Logan
International Airport.
He arrived at his new
one-bedroom apartment in
February with nothing but his
door keys and a backpack.
It took him about a month to
get used to the feeling that he
could stay if he wanted to.
"You're so used to living so
many years in someone else's
domain," said Harrington, 66,
an Army veteran who served
stateside during the Vietnam
War. "There was this expecta-
tion that someone's going to
be coming through the door
because they really own the
place that you're in."
Harrington takes great pride
in turning his new apartment
into a home. He found a couple
of tables that neighbors were
going to throw away. Carly

It's meals on wheels for pet owners


TAMPA (AP) -If it
came down to it, Gloria
Hernandez-Rosado would
gladly forgo a meal if she
didn't have food for her
beloved brindle chihua-
hua, Kane.
"I would go hungry
to buy him food,"
Hernandez-Rosado, 67,
a retired flight attendant
supervisor for American
Airlines, said Sunday at
her Riverside Palms apart-
ment. "So help me God.
This dog is incredible. All


he wants to do is love me."
It's a choice the
Humane Society of Tampa
Bay doesn't want pet
owners on fixed incomes
having to make.
Hernandez-Rosado is
one of 125 Hillsborough
County residents taking
part in a Humane Society
service called Animeals, a
program where volunteers
deliver free pet food once
a month to the homes
of those with neither the
transportation nor the


financial means to ade-
quately feed pets. Think
of it as the pet version of
Meals onWheels, a pro-
gram in which Animeals
has its roots.
Mary Birrell, president
of the Humane Society's
board of directors, said
Meals onWheels vol-
unteers contacted the
Humane Society more
than a decade ago be-
cause they noticed some
people didn't have food
for their dogs or cats.


"They were feeding
their pets the meals they
were getting," said Birrell,
who noted the Humane
Society spends about
$1,500 a month on these
deliveries. "We want to
keep pets in the homes
where they are well cared
for and loved. The animal
shelters are crowded
enough."
So Animeals was born
about 2000.
To some program par-
ticipants, Birrell said, a pet


can be a much-needed
dose of happiness in a
world of struggles.
Recipients must
demonstrate a need,
which may include proof
of Social Security or
disability income, food
stamps or Medicaid.
Participants must also
have no transportation
and their pets must be
spayed or neutered, which
the Humane Society
will arrange at no cost if
needed.

NASA ordered up the

equipment had to be

With Tuesday's success,


the cooling system

equipment back up and

according to NASA.
Mastracchio and
Hopkins removed the
faulty ammonia pump
during Saturday's outing.
On Tuesday, they installed
the fresh pump.
Standing on the end

Panhandle police
shoot and kill
teen driver
PENSACOLA (AP)- A
Florida Panhandle police
officer shot and killed a
teenage boy after author-
ities say he ran over an
officer who was trying to
stop him.
The Pensacola Police
Department reports
that an officer fired into
17-year-oldWilliam
Goodman's car early
Tuesday morning after
the teen ran over another
officer's leg.
Police say they were
trying to stop the teen after
numerous reports that he
was driving recklessly and
at excessive speeds. Police
say Goodman repeatedly
rammed police vehicles
after officers boxed in his
2009 Chevrolet Corvette
and began trying to arrest
him.
The dead teen was
scheduled for a court
appearance next month
on charges from earlier
this year. Prosecutors say
he killed a pedestrian
in March while illegally
passing another vehicle.

Fla. consumer
confidence
unchanged in Dec.
GAINESVILLE (AP)
Florida's consumer
confidence is remaining
unchanged.
The monthly University
of Florida survey released
Tuesday shows the state's
consumer confidence
was 77 in the month of
December. That's on a scale
of 2 to 150 benchmarked to
1966 at a value of 100.
The December figure
matches the revised
number for November.
Consumer confidence
sharply fell off in October
before rebounding last
month.
Chris McCarty, director of
the UF center that does the
survey, says that improving
economic conditions may
be helping sustain consum-
er confidence. He said the
dip in October was likely
tied to the federal govern-
ment showdown.

Women sentenced
in $4M Medicare
fraud scam
MIAMI (AP) -Two
South Florida women
have been sentenced to
10 years each in prison for
their roles in a $4.1 million
Medicare fraud scheme.
The sentences were
imposed Tuesday on
39-year-old Yiral Cardona
and 42-year-old Susan
Chi, both of Miami. They
were convicted in October
of conspiracy and ille-
gally paying health care
kickbacks from their Vista
Home Health Services.
Court documents say the
women illegally paid patient
recruiters at least $141,000
to provide patients. Those
patients were then used to
bill Medicare for services
that weren't necessary or
were not provided.
Medicare paid some
$4.1 million to the clinic
between May 2009 and
April 2012.

Va. town looks
for ways to rid
town of vultures
VINTON, Va. (AP)-
Officials in aVirginia
town are looking for ways
to get migrating buzzards
to buzz off.
This year, nearly 100
vultures landed in the
Gladetown area ofVinton.
Vinton police officers
fired booming guns into
the air to drive the birds
away, and most left.
Town manager Chris
Lawrence tells The
Roanoke Times that more
efficient methods are
being considered for the
vultures' return next year.
The town could apply
for a federal permit to kill
one vulture. The remains


would be hung near the
other vultures. Lawrence
says the vultures would
disperse because they
don't like to be around
their own dead.
He says vultures are
loud and dirty and tear
up trees. But he says the
town tries to co-exist with
nature.

The law's supporters
said the extra day means
the public got the message
and wants subsidized
health insurance.
'A lot of people who pre-
viously found health care
unaffordable are learning
they can get very substan-
tial subsidies that bring
premiums within their
reach," said Ron Pollack,
president of Families
USA, a liberal advocacy
group leading efforts to get

up for coverage next year.

Brown, aVA social worker, drove
him to a local furniture bank where
he picked up a sofa and bed. And
Doyle chipped in as well, giving
him a television. Now just look at
the place, Harrington beams.
"Where are you going to find
something better than this?" said
Harrington. "You're not."
A voucher from the federal
government pays $981 of the
veteran's monthly rent. He uses his
Social Security and aVA pension
to pay another $221 himself.
Doyle checks on him weekly to
make sure he's OK.
Doyle said he believes that
regular visits from a fellow veteran
make it harder for his clients to give
up and go back to their old life.
"It's easy to put someone into
an apartment, but it's not as
easy to keep them in one," Doyle
said. 'A lot of these guys do have
mental health issues or substance
abuse issues. Sometimes, that's
the reason they do the right thing
because they know I'm going to
come see them."

In the daily whirlwind,
she still worries about her

with most health plans
allowing customers to

retroactive coverage to

"With deadlines
that keep changing,

Zirkelbach, spokesman
for America's Health
Insurance Plans.
Obama said Friday
that more than 1 million
Americans had enrolled
for coverage since Oct. 1.
The administration's esti-

to sign up by Dec. 31, and
the target is 7 million by
the end of March. After
that, people who fail to
buy coverage can face tax
penalties.


The federal government
estimates that the homeless rate
among veterans has dropped by
about 25 percent in the past three
years, but nearly 58,000 veterans
remain on the streets or in tempo-
rary shelters on any given night.
"I have said from the beginning,
the climb will get steeper the closer
we get to the summit," Veterans
Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki said
earlier this year in Washington.
'All the easy cases will have been
housed. In the end, we will have
the toughest, most difficult cases to
solve some prior failures, some
behavioral problems, even some
serious mental health issues."
VA officials point to Boston as a
model for what can be done when
local and federal organizations
work together. Their focus is to get
chronically homeless veterans into
a house or apartment as soon as
possible instead of putting them
into temporary or emergency
shelters for months at a time. Then,
once the vet gets into a house, of-
ficials arrange the support services
the veteran will need to stay there,
such as substance abuse coun-
seling and job training. Typically,
the federal government pays most
of the cost for the home through
a voucher. Local officials and

gifts to go to accounts that

A single penny is always

Monmaney said. "My guess
is it's a church group and
they're giving someone a
Merry Christmas."


Francis leads first Christmas

celebrations as pope


VATICAN CITY (dpa)-
Pope Francis led a solemn
procession Tuesday into
Saint Peter's Basilica in front
of thousands of faithful, as
he conducted Christmas
celebrations for the first time
since his election as leader
of the world's 1.2 billion
Catholics.
Francis entered the basilica
shortly before 9:30 p.m. In a
change of liturgical practice,
he personally kissed and
placed a statue of the baby
Jesus in a manger at the start
of the service, due to last until
around midnight.
Christmas celebrations
at the Vatican started in
the afternoon, with the
unveiling of a life-sized


nonprofits also help coordinate the
support services that are, again,
mostly paid for through theVA.
"When you put housing as
the priority, the treatment and
everything else comes along in a
much more effective way because
they're getting their most basic
needs met first," said Vincent
Kane, director of the National
Center on Homelessness Among
Veterans, which conducts policy
analysis and research.
To estimate the number of
homeless veterans, the federal
government relies on an annual
count that takes place in January.
Thousands of volunteers, govern-
ment employees and nonprofit
workers search their local streets,
parks and shelters in an effort to
count the number of homeless
people. The latest count in Boston
estimated 458 homeless vets on
any given night in 2013, a drop
of 15 percent over the past three
years.

when a genetic condition
is involved, but the
triple-transplant Kremises
are a rarity even in the
world of advanced cardiac
specialty medicine.
Hypertrophic cardio-
myopathy affects up to
600,000 people in the U.S.
alone and is a leading
cause of sudden death
among young athletes,
said Dr. Gregory Perens,
one of the boys' pediatric
cardiologists at Mattel
Children's Hospital UCLA
Many don't have symp-
toms until there is a strain
on the heart, while others


experience shortness of
breath and chest pain
but have a milder version
that can be controlled
through medication and
a pacemaker. A parent
who carries the gene has
a 50 percent chance of
passing it along.
"For most families even
having one child or one
parent going through a
transplant is a very big
deal," Perens said. "So to
have three is an extraordi-
nary amount of work."
Still, the family never
stops thinking about the
anonymous donors who
gave them all a second


chance. After his trans-
plant, the family would
find Trevin crying quietly,
worried about the family
who had lost a child so he
could live.
"I'll take anything to
feel the way I feel now,"
said Kremis. "We've been
blessed, just blessed, as a
family and you live every
day as best you can."
The trio's shared cardiac
history is in plain sight
around their house in sub-
urban San Diego County,
from the color-coded
plastic bins that hold their
prescriptions to the iden-
tical chest scars. Medical
bills with eye-popping
sums pour in for Kremis'
recent transplant and the
family is still paying off the
boys' treatment six years
later.
The family moved from
Arizona to live with Kremis'
parents in San Marcos so
they could to be close to
the pediatric cardiology
team at UCLA. Kremis'
husband, Richard, landed
a job with AT&T. They have
decent insurance, but with
a high deductible, so that
the boys can stay with
the same specialists who
oversaw the transplants.
"Has it affected our fam-
ily? Yeah, but it's just life,"
said Kremis. "It doesn't
make our problems worse
than anyone else's. It just
means when it comes, you
just deal with it and you
move on."

Francis prepared for
the festivities by paying a

Dyer had drug problems before
he entered the Army. After his
discharge, Dyer said, his drug use
intensified.
His health went downhill and
he eventually was hospitalized
with kidney failure. He woke up
to find his father sitting next to his
bed. Dyer said he saw how badly
he was hurting his family and
resolved that his spiral was over.
Doyle, meanwhile, kept tabs
on Dyer's progress and eventually
asked him to join the veterans'
homeless team.

Most of the team's clients have

require counseling and treatment.
Harrington said he's never had a

Stocks end on a high note


NEWYORK (AP) Stocks rose
in a holiday-shortened trading day
Tuesday, helped by a report that
showed American companies were
investing in their businesses at the
fastest pace since January.
Markets were open for just half
a day ahead of the Christmas
holiday, and trading volume was
extremely light. Roughly 1.3 billion
shares changed hands on the New
York Stock Exchange, a third of
what is traded on a regular day. It
was the slowest day of the year.
Materials and industrial stocks
rose more than the rest of the
market after the government re-
ported that orders for long-lasting


manufactured products rose
3.5 percent in November, more
than economists expected. Core
capital goods, a category that
tracks business investment,
jumped 4.5 percent, the biggest
gain since January.
DuPont rose $1.09, or 2 percent,
to $63.83 and construction equip-
ment maker Caterpillar gained
95 cents, or 1 percent, to $90.91.
The Dow Jones industrial
average rose 62.94 points, or
0.4 percent, to 16,357.55. The
Standard & Poor's 500 index
rose 5.33 points, or 0.3 percent,
to 1,833.32 and the Nasdaq
composite rose 6.51 points, or


0.2 percent, to 4,155.42.
Stocks have been rising steadily
since lastWednesday, when the
Federal Reserve surprised inves-
tors by announcing it was cutting
back its bond-buying program,
citing an improving economy.
The Fed said it will reduce its
bond purchases to $75 billion
a month beginning in January,
down from $85 billion.
The last five days of gains have
added to what has been a historic
year for stock market investors. The
S&P 500 index is up 28.6 percent
for 2013, or 30.9 when dividends
are included, its best year since
1997.

Los Angeles, and my
daughter makes $3,000
to $5,000 a month modeling.
I don't want her to become
spoiled by this job and the
income, and I need advice on
what to do with the money.
Should it be put aside for a car,
and do you think she should
have to pay for something like
that herself? Lisa
Dear Lisa: So how do we
keep a high-income, high-
profile job from ruining this
little girl? I think a lot of it has
to do with her interaction with
you, and how you gently mold
her work ethic and attitude.
Don't let her become a diva.
She's not there to be fawned
over or placed on a pedestal.
She's there to serve. That means
working hard and doing the
best she can. That's her job
whether she's flipping burgers
or making $5,000 a month
modeling. The money's nice,
but what we're really doing is
making sure she learns some
important life lessons. And
you're still being a parent, not
a friend or peer, through every
moment.
When it comes to the money,
you guys should sit down and
discuss some goals for the
future. I think it's important
that any car purchase be rea-
sonable, because the best thing
a kid this age could do with
that kind of money is save up
for college. Even if she goes to
school on a full scholarship, she
should be driving something
low-key. Just because she gets
a free ride in college doesn't
mean she gets to cruise the
streets in a Lamborghini. Set
the rest of it aside for when life
really begins after college.
As her mom, it's very
important that you teach her
these lessons now. It's essential,
too, that you don't surrender
the position of parent, teacher
and leader. Chances are when
this young lady is 34, no one
will give a flip that she modeled
for a while as a teenager. The
most important things here are
the lessons taught and learned,
not the money. Dave

Dear Dave: My husband and


I have about $60,000 in feder-
ally insured student loans. Can
our wages be garnished if we're
paying less than the actual
payment amount? If so, how
far behind do we have to be for
that to happen? Jennifer
Dear Jennifer: To the best
of my knowledge there's no
set formula for making this
determination. In counseling
people, we find some folks who
are two years behind making
payments before anything is
done, while others are flagged
at just a couple of months. In
reality, they can garnish you
immediately if you're paying
less than the agreed-upon
amount. But in most cases they
won't mess with you as long as
there's reasonable activity on
the account.
The thing most people don't
realize about student loans is
that a lawyer doesn't have to be
involved for them to garnish
your wages. It's a lot like the IRS
in that they don't have to sue
you in order to take your wag-
es. Congress gave them that
power because it's a federally
insured loan. And in my mind,
that's way too much power.
If you're having trouble
making your payments, don't
just throw up your hands and
default. Talk to them about
a deferral, and keep sending
them whatever you can. It's
always better to be proactive
than reactive in situations like
these. Let them know you want
to make good on your obliga-
tion, and ask what you can do
to make this happen under
terms you can afford.
Good luck, Jennifer! Dave

Utah turns to higher court to halt gay marriage


SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Utah
state lawyers have again turned to
a Denver-based federal appeals
court in their bid to put a stop
to gay couples getting married,
saying the state should not be
required to abide by one judge's
narrow view of a "new and
fundamentally different definition
of marriage."
About 700 gay couples have
obtained wedding licenses since
U.S. District Judge Robert J. Shelby
on Friday declared Utah's gay
marriage ban unconstitutional,


but lawyers for the state are
trying every legal avenue to halt
the practice. Shelby on Monday
denied their bid to temporarily
stop gay marriage while the
appeals process plays out, and
they quickly went to the
10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Utah is the 18th state where
gay couples can wed or will soon
be able to marry, and the sight of
same-sex marriages occurring
just a few miles from the head-
quarters of the Mormon church
has provoked anger among


the state's top leaders.
"Until the final word has been
spoken by this Court or the
Supreme Court on the constitu-
tionality of Utah's marriage laws,
Utah should not be required to
enforce Judge Shelby's view of a
new and fundamentally different
definition of marriage," the state
said in a motion to the appeals
court.
It is estimated that nearly
two-thirds of Utah's 2.8 million
residents are members of
The Church of Jesus Christ of


Latter-day Saints, and Mormons
dominate the state's legal and po-
litical circles. The Mormon church
was also one of the leading forces
behind California's short-lived ban
on same-sex marriage.
The legal wrangling over the
topic will likely continue for
months. The 10th Circuit could
rule as soon as Tuesday on whether
to temporarily halt the weddings,
but the same court likely will hear
the full appeal of the case several
months from now.

AmEx to pay
$75.7 million for
unfair marketing
WASHINGTON
(Bloomberg) -American
Express agreed to pay
$75.7 million to settle
claims that it used decep-
tive marketing practices to
sell protection services to
credit card customers.
The company must pay
$59.5 million in restitution
to more than 335,000
harmed customers, accord-
ing to the deals announced
Tuesday by the Federal
Deposit Insurance Corp.,
Office of the Comptroller
of the Currency and the
Consumer Financial
Protection Bureau. The
biggest credit card issuer
by customer purchases
violated the law when it
misrepresented the costs
and benefits of its add-on
products, the agencies said.
"We first warned compa-
nies last year about using
deceptive marketing to sell
credit card add-on prod-
ucts, and everyone should
be on notice of this issue,"
Richard Cordray, director of
the consumer bureau, said
in a statement. "Today we
are refunding thousands of
American Express custom-
ers who were harmed by
these illegal practices."

Fight over military
pension cuts
to continue
WASHINGTON (AP)-
The Pentagon's top civilian
says it's time to tame bur-
geoning military personnel
costs, but he's facing a test
of wills with the nation's
powerful veterans groups,
which want no cut in their
benefits.
Veterans groups are
fighting curbs in annual
pension increases for
military retirees under
age 62 that are part of the
new budget deal passed
by Congress last week and
awaiting President Barack
Obama's signature. After
a barrage of protests from
the military community,
lawmakers
said they'll
review the
S cut next year
and possibly
reverse it.
But Defense
Secretary
HAGEL Chuck
Hagel said
Thursday that reform of
military compensation
can't be avoided.
"We all know that we
need to slow cost growth
in military compensation,"
Hagel told a Pentagon press
conference. "We know that
many proposals will be
controversial and unpopu-
lar.... Tough decisions will
have to be made."

Church signs get hip with quips


ST. LOUIS (AP) -
Pastor Mike Butzberger
insists he only had
holiday spirit in mind
when his Florida
church's marquee read:
"Christmas Easier to
spell than Hanukkah."
But after a passer-by
told him she found the
message offensive and
a local television station
inquired about it, the
Lighthouse Baptist
Church preacher hustled
to blunt any uproar by
begrudgingly changing
the sign to: "Jesus Loves
You."
"By no means would
I as human or Christian
ever put anything on the
sign with the intention
of hurting or insulting,"
Butzberger told The
Associated Press from
his church in North Palm
Beach, Fla. "The purpose
of the sign is to draw
people to God, which is,
in our 'business,' what
we're selling."
Welcome to the chal-
lenge for pastors eager


to update the age-old
practice of luring in wor-
shippers with messages
on marquees out front
of the church. Long the
place for Gospel quotes
and Christmas Eve
sermon hours, now the
signs are often clever,
pithy or funny. But
pastors are finding that
joking about religion is a
serious business, and it's
easy to cross a line.

Israel launches Gaza airstrikes for worker killing


GAZA CITY Gaza Strip
(AP) Israeli air and
ground forces launched a
series of attacks Tuesday
on targets across the
Gaza Strip, killing a young
girl and wounding 10 in
response to the deadly
shooting of an Israeli
civilian by a Palestinian
sniper.
It was the heaviest burst
of violence in the volatile
area since November 2012,
when Israel and Hamas'
rulers engaged in eight
days of heavy fighting. The
sudden flare-up threatened
a cease-fire that halted that
fighting and which largely
has held up for the past 13
months.
"I recommend to Hamas
not to test our patience
and to assert its authority,"
Israeli Defense Minister
MosheYaalon said. "If there
isn't quiet in Israel, there
won't be quiet in the Gaza
Strip."


The Israeli military said
aircraft, tanks and infantry
targeted "terror sites" in
Gaza, including a weap-
ons-manufacturing facility,
"terror infrastructure" and a
concealed rocket launcher.
"Direct hits were con-
firmed," it said.
Palestinian officials
reported at least 16 Israeli
attacks, causing a series of
loud explosions across the
territory in rapid succes-
sion. Hamas ordered its
forces to evacuate offices
and compounds and
redeploy to safer sites.
Hamas Health Ministry
official Ashraf al-Kidra said
an airstrike in central Gaza
killed a 3-year-old girl and
wounded three relatives,
including two young
siblings. In all, 10 people
were wounded, he said. He
said an earlier report of a
second death was wrong,
and that the wounded man
was in serious condition


at a hospital.
Hamas spokesman Sami
Abu Zuhri condemned
what he called "cowardly"
Israeli attacks. "The
occupation will not terrify
the Palestinian people by
these actions and will not
punish our resistance and


will not halt its readiness to
respond to any attacks on
Gaza," he said.
Israel launched the
airstrikes shortly after a
Gaza sniper shot an Israeli
civilian laborer as he
performed maintenance
work on the border fence.


WORLD

UN says mass
grave of 34 found
in South Sudan
NAIROBI, Kenya (AP)
-Amid the eruption of
violence along ethnic
lines in South Sudan, U.N.
investigators discovered a
mass grave in a rebel-held
city, the United Nations
said Tuesday as a possible
opening occurred for
negotiations to avert civil
war in the world's newest
country.
The bodies were found
in Bentiu: one grave
with 14 bodies and a site
nearby with 20 bodies, said
U.N. human rights office
spokeswoman Ravina
Shamdasani.
The government minister
of information Michael
Makuei Lueth said Bentiu
is under the control of
rebels loyal to the country's
former vice president, Riek
Machar, indicating they
were responsible for the
killings.
The dead reportedly were
ethnic Dinka who belonged
to the Sudan People's
Liberation Army, said
Shamdasani, referring to
government military forces.


Musharraf trial
delayed by planted
explosives
ISLAMABAD (McClatchy)
-The treason trial of
Pakistan's former mili-
tary strongman, Pervez
Musharraf, got off to a
cloak-and-dagger start
Tuesday when police
discovered explosives and
other weapons on the route
from his Islamabad home to
the court hearing the case.
Musharraf had been
scheduled to make igno-
minious history as the first
Pakistan's former military
dictator, out of four that
have ruled the country since
its independence in 1947,
to be held accountable by a
civilian court.
Musharraf stayed put at
his luxury residence in the
suburbs of Islamabad.

Egypt car bombing kills 14; police headquarters targeted


CAIRO (Bloomberg) -A car
bomb blew up outside a security
headquarters in Egypt's Nile
Delta, killing at least 14 people
and fueling concerns that militant
assaults may multiply beyond the
restive Sinai Peninsula.
The attack, which Prime
Minister Hazem El Beblawi
called the "most heinous kind of


terrorism," left at least 100 people
wounded in the city of Mansoura
northeast of Cairo, the deadliest
single strike on security forces out-
side Sinai since Islamist President
Mohamed Mursi was ousted. At
least 12 of the dead were security
personnel, the Interior Ministry
said.
Assaults on Egypt's security


forces have intensified since
Mursi's July 3 removal, centered
for the most part in Sinai and
surrounding provinces. The Nile
Delta bombing suggests that
such attacks may "very soon
also travel to Upper Egypt
down the Nile valley," said Ziad
Aid, a senior researcher at the
Ahram Center for Political and


Strategic Studies in Cairo.
"It could signal the beginning
of a process of diffusion all over
Egypt," Akd said by phone.
El Beblawi said his cabinet
would discuss the violence
Wednesday, while the presi-
dency announced three days of
mourning.
Authorities vowed to purge the


country of "extremist groups" and
accused the attackers of trying to
derail a plan to restore democratic
rule to the nation, now governed
by military-backed officials. Next
month, Egypt is scheduled to hold
a referendum on a new constitu-
tion, meant to pave the way for
parliamentary and presidential
elections.

gays can still be prose-

After an emergency surgery, Charlotte's Schroeder makes up for lost time


ByZACH MILLER
SPORTS WRITER
PUNTA GORDA Like a fish
out of water, Charlotte High
School's Hans Schroeder spent
the month of September out of
the pool.
For good reason.
Still, the sophomore was a ma-
jor point-earner for the Tarpons
on th way to a District 3A-9
title, third place in Region 3A-3
and sixth place in the Class 3A
state championship. Schroeder
helped lead the way, making
it to the state finals in his four
events -the 100-yard and 200
freestyle, and anchor of the 200
and 400 freestyle relay teams. He
also placed in the top seven in all
but the 400 freestyle relay, which


finished 10th.
It was a lot of swimming for
someone who had his appendix


removed four
months ago.
Schroeder had
occasionally felt
sharp pains in
his abdomen that
kept him up at
night, symptoms
that were initially
diagnosed as a so-
dium-related food
allergy. He stopped
eating foods high in
sodium, such as hot

Chinese food.
But it didn't help.
The last straw came one school


day when the pain returned after
a morning practice. By third
period, the pain was so bad that
Schroeder, who
was at the peak of
his training, could

all stand up straight.

gency room and
mming had his appendix
swimming removed, the
ss country procedure cutting
cross country through his core
muscles. He was
released the next
morning, but
swimming was a long way off. He
went from getting through two
demanding swim practices in a


day to not being able to get out
of bed without assistance.
But one thing nagged him
more than anything.
"I felt like I let the team down,"
Schroeder said.
Swimming might not be
viewed as a team sport, but
Schroeder bought in to the team
mentality that coach Jeff Cain
preaches. Schroeder's season
included an individual district
and regional championship in
the 100 freestyle, but the most
memorable moment for him
was when the Tarpons won the
district team title.
Which is why he showed up to
practices, knowing full well that
he'd just have to sit on the side

*NFL:



Bucs confident, but wary


By RICK STROUD
TAMPA BAY TIMES
TAMPA-When
Tampa Bay heads to New
Orleans for Sunday's
season finale, the Bucs
have the confidence
of nearly beating the
Saints at Raymond James
Stadium in Week 2, falling
16-14 on a last-second
field goal.
Then again, Sunday's
game is in the
Superdome, and no team
in the NFL has a more
dramatic difference in
where they play than
the Saints, who average
a league-high 15.1 more
points at home than on
the road, allowing seven
fewer points in home
games as well. They're
three full touchdowns
better as a team, just on
location.
"I don't know why that
is. I don't think it's every
season, so it's not like

that's been their MO,"
coach Greg Schiano said
Tuesday. "Thirty-three
points (per game) at
home, 18 on the road.
Plus-five in turnover mar-
gin at home, minus-five
on the road. There's no
doubt, they're 7-0 at
home because of those
numbers. We've got a tall
order in front of us."
The Saints are unde-
feated at home, but still
battling for a spot in the
playoffs because they're
3-5 on the road, and the
Bucs need to find a way

to make New Orleans
play like it's traveling for
the holidays. That wasn't
the case the last time
the Bucs and Schiano
went there, losing 41-0
last season. Other better
teams still alive for play-
off berths have struggled
this year in New Orleans
- Dallas lost there by 32,
Arizona by 24, Miami by
21 and even NFC South
rival Carolina by 18.
Across the league,
NFL teams score about
3 points per game more
at home the Bucs


are slightly better at 4.4
points more at home. So
why do the Saints thrive
at home? You can point
to a controlled climate
indoors, but the Bucs
have more control over
limiting the home crowd's
impact on the game.
"You have to attack
them," defensive tackle
Gerald McCoy said. "You
can't let a team like this
get hot early, because if
they get hot early, there's
no stopping them. It's
almost impossible. One
of the best crowds in
the NFL. That's a tough
place to play, playoff-type
environment."
And because the Saints
have lost their last three
road games, they need
a win Sunday (or an
Arizona loss) to clinch a
playoff berth. With that in
mind, the NFL flexed the
game from its scheduled
1 p.m. ET kickoff to 4:25.


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

IRVING, Texas -
Dallas owner Jerry Jones
said the Cowboys aren't
ruling Tony Romo out of
a winner-take-all game
against Philadelphia
because doctors could
clear him after treating
his back injury.
Jones said on his radio
show Tuesday that his
quarterback has proven
he can play with pain but
won't if doctors advise
against it.
The Cowboys (8-7) and
Eagles (9-6) are playing
Sunday night in Dallas'
third straight season fina-
le against an NFC East
rival with the division
title and a playoff berth
on the line.
Romo was the starter
in losses to the NewYork
Giants two years ago and
Redskins last season.
He injured his back
in the fourth quarter of
Sunday's 24-23 win at
Washington. Kyle Orton,


San Francisco's NaVorro Bowman, left, intercepts a deflected
pass before making an 89-yard touchdown run in the 49ers'

who hasn't started a
game since 2011, is the
backup.
Meanwhile, it doesn't
matter to the Eagles who
plays quarterback.
"We've got a great
challenge no matter
who the quarterback is,"
Philadelphia defensive
coordinator Billy Davis
said. "I don't think the of-
fense changes too much


with one or the other.
I think we're prepared
for both of them, and
we're prepared to give
the Dallas Cowboys the
absolute best."

49ers surging during
December stretch run: The
reigning NFC champion San Francisco
49ers are headed back to the playoffs.
With plenty of momentum. The 49ers
(11-4) are riding a five-game winning


streak after a thrilling 34-24 win
against Atlanta on Monday night. If
the Niners win at Arizona on Sunday
and Seattle loses at home to St. Louis,
they would capture a third straight
division crown in improbable fashion
Things can change fast in this
league. Just when the Falcons were
driving with a chance to win after
Matt Ryan led two late touchdown
drives, Tramaine Brock broke up a
pass to Harry Douglas. Linebacker
NaVorro Bowman grabbed the ball
for an interception and ran 89 yards
for a touchdown with 2:09 remaining.

Around the league:
When the Green Bay Packers take
the field for practice on Thursday,
they will know whether quarterback
Aaron Rodgers is going to start
Sunday's NFC North showdown at the
Chicago Bears. "It will be a definitive
conclusion to this week's unknown,"
Rodgers said. ...
Falcons defensive tackle Corey
Peters will undergo season-ending
Achilles surgery after sustaining an
injury in Monday night's loss ...
Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback EJ
Manuel resumed practicing, but it's
not clear whether he'll play Sunday at
New England.

switched his allegiance
to the Seminoles and
convinced his family and
friends to do the same.
Still, hearing about the
mighty SEC is unavoid-
able in Tallahassee.
Serving's first priority is
to lead No. 1 FSU (13-0) to
a win in the BCS National
Championship Game
against No. 2 Auburn (12-
1). But the chance to halt
the SEC's run of seven
consecutive national titles
in one fell swoop would
be a nice bonus.
"It's the underdog, I
love it," Erving said. "Go
somewhere where no one
thinks you're going to
win and come out, bring
the program back to the
top and now we're in the
national championship.
To be in the position
we're in as a program is
amazing."
The storyline of FSU
posing a serious threat to
end the SEC's run as top
dog is gaining traction
heading into the champi-
onship contest on Jan. 6
in Pasadena, Calif. Kickoff
is at 8:30 p.m. and the
game will air on ESPN.
FSU is an 8 12-point
favorite against Auburn
and has been built in the
mold of an SEC team: The
Seminoles are physical
and big along both the
offensive and defensive
lines, yet have an abun-
dance of athletes at other

positions.
It's a formula that
has worked for the SEC
and is how FSU coach
Jimbo Fisher wanted to
construct his program.
However, Fisher, who
won a national title as an
offensive coordinator at
LSU in 2003, maintains he
did not think SEC when
building his program.
"I'll build a team that
I think will win a cham-
pionship, I aint worried
(about the SEC)," Fisher
said. "I've coached in the
SEC for 13 years, I know
the good and the bad. I
know the propaganda
and the truths. It's a great
league, great coaches,
they love it. But we build
our team not based off
an SEC team, but if it's
like some of them, that's
great.
"We've built one that
we think can bring us a
championship."
FSU is in SEC territory.

spent watching turned
out to be more valuable
than he expected.
"It was different being
able to watch and see
what the coaches see,"
Schroeder said. "It gave
me a new perspective.
"Before I didn't really
understand how frustrat-
ing it could be watching
someone hit a wall and
wanting them to go faster.
I kind of get where they're
coming from now."
Watching his team-
mates also gave him more
insights into techniques
he'd struggled with. He re-
alized that he was slowing
himself down by turning
his head backwards to
take breaths, a tendency
he noticed in several of
his teammates. He also
learned how to swim
better underwater.
"Before, I didn't really
understand that move-
ment," he said. "When
I started training again,
my underwater got a
lot better because I can
picture it and see what I
want it to look like."
Those improvements,
plus the fact that he was
in such good shape before

get back to form by the
district meet at the end of
October.
From there he went
on to have a strong
postseason, one that he
didn't think he could have
topped by much if he had
stayed healthy.
When he looks back
on his sophomore
season, Schroeder doesn't
remember it as the one
where he had to rebound
from appendicitis, or
the one where he made
it to finals in four state
championship events.
He remembers it as the
one when he helped the
Tarpons regain the district
championship.

East is Least right now.
"The thing about the
NBA is, you're trying to
build the right habits each
and every day, then it's the
teams that are playing the
best and are the healthiest
going into the playoffs,"
Chicago coach Tom
Thibodeau said. "So that's


what you're aiming for, to
continue to improve -
and anything could"
It's possible that five
teams with losing records
will reach the playoffs,
matching the total of
the last six postseasons
combined, all on the East
side. The West hasn't sent
a sub-.500 team to the
playoffs since 1997.
Nonetheless, those who
look like also-rans hardly
sound discouraged.
"We've got tough guys
in here," Toronto's Kyle


Lowry said. "No matter
what's happening, we're
going to keep playing and
trying to get it done."
Those 27-2 Celtics
finished 62-20, and the
Cavaliers were 66-16 with
the NBAs best record.
Orlando was seven games
behind Cleveland, clearly
third-best in the East.
That is, until the play-
offs happened. Orlando
won a Game 7 in Boston
to reach the East finals,
then topped LeBron
James and the Cavaliers

the NBA Finals. The Los
Angeles Lakers wound up
winning the title.
"It's never easy," said
James, now with the two-
time defending champion
Heat. "We never thought it
would be."
Toronto won at
Oklahoma City on Sunday
night, something no one
else has done this season.
Boston won in Miami.
Detroit won in Indiana
and Miami. Brooklyn and
New York probably can't
stay this bad all season.
"It's a long season, you
know, and teams that
have injuries now, they get
healthy as they go along,"
said Thibodeau, whose
Bulls have lost Derrick
Rose for the season.
"Anything could happen
at the end."
True, but right now it
doesn't look good.

disturbing images, intense sequences of action and
thematic elements.
Keanu Reeves makes an explosive return to action-ad-
venture in 47 Ronin. After a treacherous warlord kills their
master and banishes their kind, 47 leaderless samurai
vow to seek vengeance and restore honor to their people.
Driven from their homes and dispersed across the land,

across a savage world of mythic beasts, shape-shifting
witchcraft and wondrous terrors.

In brand new interviews with Bieber, the movie reveals

Let's Go!


AT THE THEATERGO


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
One of the most beloved holiday ballets of all
time is coming to Punta Gorda this weekend.
"The Nutcracker" is the most widely performed
ballet in the world. Peter Tchaikovsky originally
composed the music in 1891 for Alexandre
Dumas'adaptation of E.T.A. Hoffman's tale "The
Nutcracker and the Mouse King,"and the current
version of the ballet performance was created
by renowned choreographer George Balanchine
in 1954.
Still performing Balanchine's ballet today
is The Rudolf Nureyev State Ballet Theatre,
with its company of 60 dancers. The youngest
among the Russian theatres, it holds sacred and
maintains traditions started by the luminaries of
the company, the alumni of the St. Petersburg
school; spirituality of dance, dramatic effect and
the depth of the image penetration, combination
of the technical skills and emotionality of
performing.
The company's namesake, Russian-born dancer
Rudolf Nureyev, was one of the greatest male
dancers of the 20th century. Nureyev's influence
on the world of ballet drastically changed the
perception of male dancers, because in his
productions of the classics, the male roles were
given much more choreography than in earlier
productions.
His second very important influence was his
crossing the borders between classical ballet and
modern dance by dancing both, although he had
been trained only as a classical dancer. Today it is
quite normal for dancers to train in both styles,
but Nureyev was the one who started this trend.


MARI RETaURNT TERN
MARINA REfTAURANT TAVERN


The State Ballet
Theatre of Russia
is based in the city
of Ufa, Nureyev's
hometown. Its tra-
ditional production
of "The Nutcracker"
features elaborate
sets and costumes,
along with the same
authentic Russian
choreography that
is performed by _
Moscow's famed
Bolshoi Ballet. Its
score, which includes "We it o the H:ier'"
"Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" and "Waltz of the
Snowflakes" is considered one of Tchaikovsky's
most melodic and fondly remembered.
For the past 100 years, this classic ballet
has delighted audiences young and old,
even adding a bit of fantasy to a timeless
story. Featuring traditional choreography
and spectacular imagery, "The Nutcracker"
has become a holiday tradition that is not
to be missed and a wonderful way to enjoy
the season with friends and family.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for the 7:30 p.m.
show on Friday, Dec. 27, at the Charlotte Harbor
Event and Conference Center, 75 Taylor St., Punta
Gorda. Doors open at 1 p.m. for the 2 p.m. show

By ERIN MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT

in North Port will be welcoming guests on
Christmas Day to dine in their spacious and
inviting restaurant.
Christmas dinner will offer a set menu
giving guests the choice of roast turkey, ham,
stuffed grouper with crab meat, lamb shank, or
a broiled seafood platter with grouper, shrimp
and scallops.
Celebrating their 20th anniversary in April,
FamilyTable Restaurant's longevity offers a
comforting familiarity to both the returning
clientele and the staff.

and Steve at the restaurant. Several of their
employees have been with them since opening

"It is a comfortable place,"Zulbeari said. "We
treat everyone well."
Many of the employees are either related to
one another or have grown to feel like a family
after working together for so many years.
Hostess Linda Hewitt greets customers as
though she were welcoming them into her
home. Hewitt's mother-in-law previously
worked at Family Table and now her daughter


has started working part time in the evenings.
"The management has always been really
good to me,";' Hewitt said. "They know all of us.
That's why they call it a family restaurant."
The 7,000-square-foot restaurant elegantly
trimmed with mahogany moldings has three
banquet rooms and a full bar.
"We have a lot of local clubs that meet
here on a regular basis,"Zulbeari said.
The banquet space has also beenri uejd for

River City Grill owner has seen Punta Gorda flourish


Restaurant will be open for Christmas


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
About 10 years ago, downtown Punta Gorda was
not the destination spot for restaurants and bars
that it is now.
As a matter of fact, River City Grill owner Doug
Amaral says that when he first looked at the Marion
Street building that he eventually bought, there
were no other restaurants on the street.
"I just went up the coast looking for a place to
invest in," he said. "I was driving to my hotel in
Punta Gorda and saw downtown, and I just fell in
love with it."
At the time, Amaral owned a restaurant on
Naples' tony 5th Avenue called the Mangrove Cafe.
He still owns it today, but makes his home base
in Charlotte County. The two restaurants are quite
different the one here is a casual American grill
and the one in Naples has a higher-end menu. But
there are some elements of that kind of menu that
Amaral hopes to bring to his Punta Gorda location.
"I'm a chef by trade, and I am determined to go
down that road here," he said. "That's why I have
my friend, who has the second largest scalloping
company in the country, ship me fresh scallops. And
I tryto make deals with local farmers and bring in
the best. People who have an interest in that type of
thing, I want to make it available to them."
That doesn't mean that his menu will be a
pretentious one that only appeals to a select few.
Amaral prides himself on having a comprehensive
selection, with carefully crafted, fresh dishes that
can appeal to most anyone.
"Our Dry Pack Sea Scallops have absolutely
become one of the big sellers," he said. "I am
getting them straight from the boat. And the pot
roast sells off the charts here we marinate it and
it's slow roasted."

Fri, Dec. 27

Being in the restaurant business for so long
(he's had his Naples site for more than 25
years) has allowed him to come into contact
and become friends with some very interesting
people. Sometimes, those people's names even
make their way onto a River City Grill menu.
"The Maddonini Chicken is a big seller," Amaral
said. "I've become friends with Joe Maddon
(manager for the Tampa Bay Rays) when he
was down here for Spring Training. That dish is
named after him."
Also as an homage to the Rays, Amaral has cre-
ated a popular steak dish called the "Tampa Strip,"
which he serves with sauteed Portobello mushrooms
and rosemary-roasted garlic butter. He asserts that this
steak is "just a bit betterthan NewYork."
When asked about the growth of downtown
Punta Gorda over the past 10 years around where
his restaurant is, Amaral says he feels very proud.
"My vision has come true," he said. "When we
opened the River City Grill, there was nothing on
this street. It's been a great ride watching this little
town flourish, and I'm glad I'm a part of it."
The River City Grill is at 131 West Marion Avenue in
Punta Gorda. It's open for lunch from 11 a.m. to
2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and for dinner
from 4:30 to 9:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and
from 4:30 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The bar is
open from 4:30 to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday
and from 4:30 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
And if you're hungry on Christmas day, River
City Grill will be open from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. with a
limited menu.
They accept reservations for dinner and are
available for private parties and outside catering
opportunities. For more information, call 941-
639-9080, or visit the Facebook page or www.

Fishermen's Village waterside location in Punta Gorda is a perfect place to celebrate New Year's Eve in a family atmosphere.



Fishermen's Village celebrates arrival of 2014


By GORDON BOWER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Fishermen's Village in Punta Gorda is a prime shop-
ping and dining destination for Southwest Florida
and is equally well-known for its creative celebrations
during favorite holidays. Festooned with more than 1
million colorful lights, the waterside mall is at its best
during the end-of-the-year holiday season.
This year, it is reprising its popular New Year's Eve
celebration, which is designed to entertain the whole
family from 5 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Best of all, the event
is totally free except for food and drink purchased at
one of the mall's many eateries, which will remain
open throughout the evening.
Last year's celebration drew several thousand
people, and marketing manager Kathy Burnam is
expecting even higher attendance this year.
"We had a packed house last year, with lots of
families and people having a good time/she said.
"We have even more festivities planned this year and
should have a record turnout for NewYear's Eve if all
goes as expected. We recently broke records for the

By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Plenty of folks have a winter home down in
Southwest Florida, but not many of them have the
kind of house that Cincinnati inventor and business-
man Powel Crosley built in north Sarasota in 1929.
The 11,000 square foot, 21-room, 10-bath Powel
Crosley home, named Seagate, was innovative for its
time, and was actuallythe first steel-framed private
residence built in the state of Florida. Placed on the
National Register of Historic Places in 1982, Seagate
was saved from commercial development and pur-
chased for renovation by Manatee County, which now
operates it as a meeting, conference and event venue.

"This is the first New Year's Eve that we're going
to do this," said Kala Clark, food service director
for Milan Catering, the house caterer for events at
the estate. "The home is what lends itself to the
Speakeasytheme."
Tickets for the event, which have been sold as a
sit-down dinner, a soiree afterwards or both, have
been on sale for some time now. The dinner has been
sold out for a while, but tickets are still available for
the party in the courtyard.
"We got Chillounge to sponsor the event, so we'll


have lounge chairs out on the lawn," Clark said. "The
bourbon and cigar bar will be in the pavilion to the
right of the house. All of the lounge area will be out
under a tent bythe bay."
If guests choose to forgo relaxing for dancing,
there will be a DJ playing all the jazz and swing
classics in the '20s theme. The mansion will also be
open the whole time, so guests can go inside, if they
wish.

The Habana Cigar Lounge


offers more than cigars


By DEBBIE FLESSNER t :i
SUN CORRESPONDENT
It's funny how your future
sometimes jumps right into '
your path. If you're not paying -
attention, you just might miss
the opportunities being placed --
in front of you.
Luckily, Jose Santiago and
Kathie Jette recognized that
they had discovered something
special when they stumbled
across the cigar business. That '
new passion eventually led them i
to open up the Habana Cigar
Lounge in Punta Gorda.
"We had lived in the Cayman
Islands for a year and while we
were there, we frequented a cou-
ple of cigar lounges there,"Jette
I
said. "When we got back from
the Caymans, we heard about this ..
cigar lounge coming up for sale "i
here and we jumped on it." '',
After they purchased the space, .
which had previously also been a
cigar bar, they began an extensive
remodeling project. As part of that Friends'
process, they tore up the old carpet
and installed hardwood floors, to
cut down on lingering smoky smells.
Then, they divided the space into
two suites.
"On one side, we have the humidor and cigars
and accessories that we sell,"Jette said. "On the
other side, we have a lounge that is set up like
your living room. It's a
comfortable and cozy . .
setting for relaxing."
Also in the lounge
are four flat-screen
TVs, which are usually
used to show sporting
events and pay-for-view
happenings. You can buy and we've
beer, wine, soft drinks,
espresso and other many frier
coffees there, too. fee l
But the star attrac- Ie blessed
tions are really the
cigars. You don't have Habana Ciga
to be a cigar expert
to enjoy one-as a ... .
matter of fact, many of
the customers who come


into the Habana Cigar Lounge are just occasional
cigar smokers.
Whether you are a cigar aficionado or a begin-
ner, Santiago will happily show you the walk-in
humidor, which carries such brands as Padron,

Gurkha, Arturo Fuentes, Esteban Carreras,
Perdomo and Oliva,just to name just a few.
"We have all kinds of brands, sizes, flavors
and different wrappers to the cigars,"Jette said.
"We help people choose cigars every day, and
even pick out gifts for
. spouses."
She added that one
e have shouldn't assume that
this is just a boys' club.
great As a matter of fact, there
are more women who
customers smoke cigars that one
nade so might think.
"A lot of women like

, truffles or cranberry,"
she said. "Then we

as the men. We're seeing
... .... more and more women
coming in looking for
cigars, for other people
and themselves."
In the coming months the Cigar Lounge will
be making some outside appearances, at the
Charlotte County Fair and the Wine and Jazz
Festival in Punta Gorda. Jette said that those are

great opportunities for her and Santiago to meet
other cigar aficionados and help initiate new
ones.
"In the future, we'd like to open another store,
too/she said. "We have great customers and we've
made so many friends here. We feel blessed."
The Habana Cigar Lounge is at 209 Wood
Street, Punta Gorda, and is open from 10 a.m.
to 10p.m. Mondaythrough Friday, from noon
to 10 p.m Saturday and Sunday. On nights when

feeling; a poker room that is open from 10 a.m. until
4 a.m.; picnic tables in the shade; benches in the sun;
good food (thick chicken tenders and fries for $5); and
simulcast betting on tracks from across the nation.
And, if you're afraid you'll feel out of place among
hard-core bettors, don't worry. On opening day there
were more than a few parents with children who
loved running around the open area at the finish line
and watching the horses parade to the starting gate.


The well-maintained track has a dirt course
and one of the top turf tracks in the nation. Its
reputation attracts trainers from all over the East
who want to test their horses or season them
against moderate to good competition.
It also attracts some fine riders, like Allen.
The 53-year-old jockey rides all over the nation
- including Keeneland in Lexington, Ky., and
Presque Isle Downs in Erie, Pa. But of his 3,000-plus
wins, some of his biggest came at Tampa Bay
Downs.
Allen grew up in Detroit where he learned to ride
for his father, a trainer. When his father took his
horses to Florida for the winter meet, he got his first


glimpse of Tampa Bay Downs.
He has made a living with his success at just this
track. He is a four-time Tampa Bay Downs riding
champ, who has won 77 stakes races, including the
1993 Tampa Bay Derby and Sam F. Davis Breeders'
Cup Stakes.
Tampa Bay Downs'laid-back atmosphere suits his
personality.
"1 just try to be friendly and nice to people,";' he said
of his popularity at the track.
Mike Henry, spokesman for the track, said Allen

'Purlie'is sign of great season for Troupe


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
As West Coast Black Theatre Troupe's
production of"Purlie" comes to a close with
nary a seat left, there are signs of more
sellouts to come.
Following "Purlie," which closed Dec. 15
are "The Whipping Man"(Jan. 2-Feb. 2);
"Harry and Lena"(Feb. 19-March 23); and
"Bubbling Brown Sugar" (April 9-May 11).
Together, the shows chronicle 100 years
of black history.
"We are 80 percent sold out for the least
three shows,"WBTT artistic director Nate
Jacobs said.
Jacobs who said he"might"be in the final
show of the season, returned from Zurich,
Switzerland recently. For the past five years,
he has taken groups of singers there to
perform in a holiday show.
"Five years ago they were looking for
gospel singers for a show/Jacobs said. "It
is a good opportunity for aspiring singers.
I took four women gospel singers over this
year. They will stay there through Jan. 3.
He went over as their director, helped put
the show together and returned in time for
Thanksgiving and in time to see his WBTT

season heading toward sell-out status.
"This troupe was meant to be bigger than
Nate Jacobs;' he said. "Although I started it,


it has always moved forward on its own. It
has taught me to trust something that has a
life of its own:'
At press time, few tickets remained for
"Purlie,"the story of a traveling preacher
who shakes things up in his hometown
where sharecroppers still lived under Jim
Crow laws.
"The Whipping Man"is a drama set in
the days immediately following the Civil
War. The story is about a Jewish Confederate
soldier who returns home. The house is in
shambles and onlytwo slaves remain. As
the three men unite and celebrate Passover
together, secrets are revealed that could
have devastating results for all three.
Two musical shows close the season.
"Harry and Lena" honors the legacies of
Harry Belafonte and Lena Horne."Bubbling
Brown Sugar" honors the days of Harlem's
Cotton Club and entertainers such as Cab
Calloway, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman
and Billie Holiday."The show earned
three Tony nominations and four Drama
Desk nominations on Broadway in 1976.
According to Wikipedia, actress Vivian Reed
won a Drama Desk Award for Best Actress in
a Musical for her role in the Broadway show.


Blue Man Group


adds shows to


holiday schedule


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Blue Man Group will increase
its paint output this season.
Beginning Dec. 19, the
blue men will add color to the
Christmas holiday season with
several additional shows. If
you have yet to see the most
colorful literally show at
Universal, this could be the time.
Beginning Dec. 19, the group
will perform daily at 6p.m. and
9 p.m. Dec. 26 through Dec. 31,
the group will add a third show
at 3 p.m. daily.
Colorful, comedic and
always a bit outrageous, they
definitely beat their drums to a
different color as they also poke
, 0h fun at themselves


and others.
Exclusive to the already
new (2012) show at Orlando,
according to a release, is a
new bit in which the group
explores "the happiness
hormone."
The group also performs on
Norwegian Cruise Line's Epic
where I first experienced the
group that is like no other. The
many casts of Blue Men tour the
U.S., perform at six permanent
installations, including the
one at Universal Orlando and
aboard Epic.
For more information about
Blue Man Group at Universal
Orlando Resort, or to purchase
tickets, visit UniversalOrlando.
com/blueman.


VILLAGE
FROM PAGE 12

Equally popular and camera-worthy is Luis the
Balloon Man, whose creations have been a hit at past
village events. He's performing between 8 p.m. and
midnight. New this year is tarot reader Pamela Jones,
who from 7p.m. to 11 p.m. will tell you what to
expect in the year ahead.
"It should be a fun thing to do going into the new
year;' Burnam said of the tarot readings. "It's going
to be pretty neat to see what she does and what the
reaction is:'
The entire evening will be filled with music
and dancing. Singer/guitarist Michael Hirst will
perform from 7:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. in the front
section of the mall, and Gator DJ takes Center


Court the entire evening.
"He's very party- and fun-oriented,";' Burnam said of
the Gator."He plays holiday and lots of dance music.
What he does is gauge the crowd; he has a light show
as well."
If that's not enough to attract adults, many of the
restaurants have special NewYear's food and drink
deals. Reservations in advance are recommended.
The evening is capped off at midnight not with a
New York City-style descending ball but a hand-
carved wooden dolphin with flashing lights, befitting
the village's waterfront location and the dolphins
often sighted near it. Gator DJ will spin tunes until
12:30 a.m. to help the celebration wind down.
Those who like to park close in should get to the
mall early and hit the shops before they close. More
information on the celebration, restaurants and shops
can be found at www.fishville.com.


SOIREE


FROM PAGE 13

Though this is a themed party, Clark said it's
not necessary to come in costume. Some people
will choose to do that and others can just wear
their sparkly New Year's wardrobe. Then, at
midnight, everyone will celebrate the arrival of
2014 in style.







German, American
and Italian Food


"We're going to do a balloon drop at midnight
from the balcony (of the home)," she said. "And
there will also be a champagne toast."
The Speakeasy Soiree is from 9:30 p.m. to
1 a.m. Dec. 31 at the Powel Crosley Estate, 8374
North Tamiami Trail, Sarasota. Tickets are $35,
which includes the champagne toast and light
bites. There will be no tickets sold on the day of
the event, so purchase them in advance online at

Last week, this musical trivia question was asked:
What is the name of the classic 1934 Christmas song
recorded live on Dec. 12,1975, by a rocking Bruce Springsteen?
Answer: "Santa Claus is Coming to Town!' The first reader to get it right was

Diane Szynal of Punta Gorda.
THIS WEEK'S QUESTION: Pop/rock artist David Bowie recorded
"Little Drummer Boy" in 1982 as an unlikely duet with this legendary crooner.
(They originally sang it together on a 1977 TV Christmas special). Name the singer.

'The Beaches'


By SHIRLEY GEORGE
SuN CORRESPONDENT

Three talented ladies met at the Punta Gorda
Guitar Army where musicians and singers jam at
Gilchrist Park in Punta Gorda every Thursday evening.
They clicked both personally and professionally,
and decided to form a band. With tongue in cheek,
the ladies claim their name was originally"The Hot
Beaches;'but decided to tone it down to simply
"The Beaches."
Since 2008, the group has been entertaining
audiences in various local venues. The majority of
their music is from the 1960s to 1980s, and includes
soft rock, classic rock and some country. They cover
artists such as the Beatles, The Who, Rolling Stones,
Eagles, Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac and others.
The Beaches claim that they choose songs best
suited for their specialty of vocal harmony. They play
as an acoustic trio that includes guitars, sometimes
bass and percussion, and a drummer for full-band
sound when they perform at large venues.
The musicians are moms, have dayjobs, and are
pleased to live near extended family.
Maurene"Mimi"Burroughs, originally from New
Hampshire, served in the U.S. Army as an air defense
artillery officer in the second battalion, 43rd Air
Defense Artillery Regiment, for 12 years. Her last
assignment was a major at West Point. Burroughs left
the military because she had two young daughters,
and did not want to deploy without them. She moved
to North Port to be near her father, and to enjoy the
wonderful Florida weather.


Burroughs has also performed with SammyJ and
the Guys,Triple Shot, and Danny Shepard bands.
Originallyfrom western New York, Heather Straw
plays guitar and bass, and is the soprano of the
group. She has been playing professionallyfor several
years, and is a member of another local band, "Up
The Creek." Straw and her husband, a contractor,
moved to Florida in 1995 to be near family. The
couple designed and built their waterfront home.
They have a son and a daughter.
"Heather comes up with the majority of our
eclectic song selections, and has an ear for chang-
ing them up to make them our own,";' Burroughs
said."l call them 'chick-a-fit'since many of the
songs are originally sung by males."
Annette Collins has been playing guitar since
the age of 10. Originally from Long Island, she
was inspired by her brother who plays in a band in
North Carolina.
"I've only been playing professionally for the
past seven years,"she said."I love performing with
Mimi and Heather."
Collins was lead vocalist and guitarist with the
disbanded "Harbor City Blues Band'."She is the mother
of three teenage daughters.
The band has performed at the Nav-A-Gator,
Gatorz, Dean's South of the Border, Porky's
Roadhouse, Fishermen's Village, and Portofino's and
has been showcased at many special events, such as
the Seafood Festival, Taste of Punta Gorda, Hibiscus
Festival, and the Englewood Music Festival.

Merry Christmas
and Happy Yule to
all our loyal readers
Hope everyone had a festive
Solstice on Saturday, and that
Christmas is equally merry
today. Since the chances of landing
a major holiday on a Herald publica-
tion date are astronomically small, I
took the liberty of holding our usual
business and sports news in favor of
inundating you with a recap of the
month's holiday events from all over
Port Charlotte.
Just as important, for those of you
planning on enjoying a spirited holi-
day, please read our free tow story on

safely, for your own sake and that of
your neighbors. Merry Christmas!

Santa's early arrival thrills Parkside children


By DELORES SAVAS
HERALD CORRESPONDENT
There were no sounds of reindeer
hoofs coming down the streets of
Zone 3 in Parkside, but the sight of
a decorated trailer full of Christmas
toys and driven by Jamie Morse
brought excited children running out
of their houses to greet Santa and
to receive their early Christmas gifts
Saturday afternoon.
Residents were alerted to Santa's
arrival with a special flier distributed
throughout Zone 3.
Sandy Pellerin, captain of Zone 3's
Neighborhood Watch Group, could
not have been more pleased.
"We passed out approximately 300
gift packages throughout our area.
Children ran from their homes when
they heard the honking of the horn.

"I've seen some things that aren't
pretty," the owner of Harbor Towing
said. "A friend of mine was sentenced
to 10 years for killing someone in a DUI
accident. He was let out because he
was dying of cancer. It wasn't worth it.
Someone lost their life, and he got out

HOLIDAY PROGRAM


Some were taking a shower and one
was getting a haircut. One child held
up a sign that read 'Santa Stop HERE
- I've Been good All Year!' For many
of these children, it would be the only
gifts they would receive for Christmas,"
Pellerin said.
Passing out gifts to the children of
Parkside Zone 3 was her brainchild.
This was the first year she and all her
volunteers took on this event.
"My volunteers were burnt out from
wrapping all the presents," Pellerin
said.
For the past year, she has been
collecting gifts from neighborhood
businesses, groups, thrift shops and
many more local outlets. She wanted to
make sure that every child in Parkside
received gifts that would contain a
book, candy and toy. Stuffed toys, dolls,
trucks and games were many of the
items that were collected.
"I wanted to do something to bring
the community together. We wanted
the area residents to realize that the
Neighborhood Watch Group that has
28 members was not there to spy on
them but to help everyone. We really
want to get this zone to become a
better and safe place to live for the
elderly and kids. We want residents
to take pride in their community,"
Pellerin said.
Volunteer Canan Douglass helped
decorate Santa's Christmas trailer with
bright lights.
"Sandy is awesome; she was able to
start something and pulled it together


Gifts were passed out to the children in Zone 3 of Parkside Saturday.

PROVIDED BY

More than 300 people turned out
for "Light Up the Holidays," a special
event held at the Peachland office of
Charlotte State Bank & Trust on Dec. 6.
Santa and Mrs. Claus were there, along
with "Mr. Christmas Tree" (aka Bob

posing for free photos.
Entertainment was provided by
singers from the Boys & Girls Clubs
of Charlotte County and the Port
Charlotte High School Enharmonics
choruses, dancers from the Higher


Ground Performing Arts Studio, and
violinists from Good Shepherd Day
School and St. Charles Borromeo
School grades two through seven.
Refreshments were served, and a

Access roads to close starting Monday
Two U.S. 41 access roads will close to traffic Monday
through May 2014: the northbound U.S. 41 access road
between Herkimer Street and Conway Boulevard; and
the southbound U.S. 41 access road between Dow Road
Northeast and Conway Boulevard. Major drainage improve-
ments are underway within the Pompano Waterway, under
U.S. 41. This project is being conducted in conjunction
with the U.S. 41 Storm Structures Micro Tunneling
Project. Detours will be in place and the traveling public is
encouraged to exercise extreme caution while traveling in
the vicinity of the construction zones. More information is
available at www.CharlotteCountyFL.gov- click on "Project
Status Updates" in the "Popular Links" list on the left.

Free Christmas-tree disposal
This year, after the presents are opened and the
ornaments are removed from the once-sparkling Christmas
tree, Waste Management of Florida invites residents to
recycle their trees through its curbside tree collection
program. Trees can be recycled and given back to nature
in the residential curbside tree collection, which will take
place the first two weeks following Christmas on customers'
scheduled collection day.
When placing trees on the curb for collection, customers
should follow these guidelines:
Remove all decorations, including tinsel, lights, orna-
ments and tree stands, and place your tree on the curb for
recycling.
Place trees that are unlocked, or do not have artificial
snow and colorings, at the curb. Flocked trees with artificial
snow cannot be recycled; your trash collector will collect
them.
Trees taller than 6 feet must be cut in half.
Residents that live in multifamily complexes should
contact their property manager for proper disposal.
For more information, call 954-226-9894.

Rainbow's End holds Christmas Extravaganza


HEP-LD PH'-.,T'-.S B, BETS, VILLI-,,1S
Both of the Rainbow's End Preschool VPK classes of 4- and 5-year-old students staged the Nativity with an abundance of angels and animals ending
the 24th Annual Christmas Extravaganza held Dec. 17 in the sanctuary at the Port Charlotte Seventh-day Adventist Church. Joseph was played by
Andrew Martin, Mary by Emily Dominguez and the Three Kings were Branson Louey, Carter Petersen and Peyton Anderson.


Four-year-old Riley White carried his class-
mates during their songs, singing at the top
of his lungs. Next to him, his classmate Jadon
Wint opted to dance instead of sing.


First to take the stage wearing leis was the VPK-B class welcoming everyone to the Christmas
Extravaganza, Hawaiian style.


After the concert, Santa paid a visit to the children just outside the church, and 4-year-old Josie
Bernsen had a one-on-one very quiet conversation with the big guy from the North Pole.

On Thursday morning, 40 excited
K-4 and kindergarten students from
Community Christian School loaded
up and headed to Peace River Regional
as part of their "Giving Back to the -..
Community" project. This year, the
children chose to give back to some
of their own by donating gifts to the
pediatric patients at the hospital.
The children arrived anxiously,
each with a gift bag in hand, and were
greeted by a handful of Peace River
Regional associates. Everyone gathered
in the hospital's conference center and
enjoyed a morning of laughter and
surprise visits.
While there, the children received
a visit from Matti, a member of the
hospital's Pet Therapy program, as well
as a surprise visit from Santa himself
who thanked the children for their
generosity. The visit was concluded
with a round of cookies and milk for all
to enjoy.
"The kids had such a memorable
experience," says Lacy Hancock,
teacher. "They had so much to say
about their trip to the other students
when we returned to school."
"We are honored that the children
of Community Christian chose the
pediatric patients to be the recipient
for this project," says Sandy Mullin, RN,
BSN, IBCLC. "On behalf of myself and

AT Nobody in town gets called "Grandma"
xi more than Punta Gorda Isles resident
Helen Gochet, an 84-year-old who
stays so busy she's rarely around to answer
her phone. The children in her neighbor-
hood call her by that honorific title not only
in deference to her overall grandmotherli-
ness but also out of affection.
*She's the nice lady who gave them their
Christmas stockings.
Throw in the other children she's given
homemade stockings and never met, and
the number who could use that term of
endearment for her would probably number
in the thousands.
Gochet was born and raised in Rock
Hills, Mich., and moved to Punta Gorda in
1998 with husband Richard, who has since
passed away. She acquired her commitment
to give to others and her sewing and artistic
ability the old-fashioned way from family.
Gochet said, "My mother taught us to give

EYE EXAM
FOR NEW PATIENTS


ood morning, Punta Gorda, and
a very merry Christmas to you all.
Today, like many of you, I am
spending my day with family members,
celebrating the joy and love of the season
while counting my many blessings in life.
Family, friends, a four-legged companion,
health, fitness and the ability to financially
support myself round out the top of my
thankful list.
Truly, I have much to be thankful for this
holiday season, and I hope each and every
one of you are able to find blessings in
your life this time of year.
If you need some help, perhaps take
a gander at the stories published in this
week's Punta Gorda Herald. On pages 8
and 9, you'll read about some ladies who
have set aside time in their day-to-day
lives to stitch up some creative, beautiful
and meaningful gifts for needy children
and cancer patients.
Then there's a story on page 16 about
two athletes from Charlotte High School
who are spending this very important day
remembering their mother, who passed
away seven months ago after a courageous
battle with cancer. It's amazing to see how
these two young people have maintained
their focus in sports and academics. Their
strength and perseverance is inspiring.
Basketball players from CHS also read
to the kindergarten classes at Deep Creek
Elementary School recently, and let's not
forget about the other events featured this

PG Chamber wishes a magical day to all


A s you awake this Christmas
S morning, I hope you and your
L Families get to enjoy the happi-
est day possible.
We are so blessed to have selected to
live and work in such a great city,
full of some of the nicest and kindest
people I have met in my travels.
The Punta Gorda Chamber of
Commerce has had one incredible
year, which has been packed with hap-
py memories and great opportunities.
Under the leadership of former board
chair Ron Monck and current chair
Jose F. Morillo, our board of directors
has worked incredibly hard to support
our mission, allowing us, the staff, to
execute a multitude of networking
opportunities for the membership
while presenting multiple events for
the community to enjoy.
2014 is already looking like a
bumper year for us. Our January and
February calendars are filling up
with an abundance of events to look
forward to, and we hope that you will
be able to join us on the ride that is
"Chamberland."
Here is a sneak peak at some of our
January events.
The chamber's annual Scottish
Laird's Golf Tournament is set to
last from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at
Sunnybreeze Golf Course, 8135 SW
Sunnybreeze Drive, Arcadia, on Jan.
11.
The cost for individuals to partici-
pate is $50, which includes 18 holes
of golf, a cart, breakfast and lunch.
Foursomes are $180. Reserve a space
by calling the chamber at 941-639-
3720 or by visiting the online payment
center of the chamber's website, www.
puntagordachamber.com.
Beginners, learners and pros are
all welcome to join us for this annual
tribute to golf's Scottish roots, which
will be accompanied by a few classic
Scottish beverages and the donning of
the kilt.
Participants are guaranteed to have
a blast at this tournament. Just ask
three-time winner Team Mullick.
Having won the tournament three out
of four times, they still have problems
remembering how they did it.
That same weekend, the chamber
is bringing back the annual Sullivan
Street Arts and Craft Fair, which will
take place along the length of Sullivan
Street in downtown Punta Gorda. The
fair will last from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
both Saturday and Sunday, so come
on down to meet artisans from around
the country.
Admission is free. All we ask is
you enjoy the atmosphere and stroll
through downtown, the farmers

market and beyond to savor all that
Punta Gorda has to offer.
On Jan. 18, we present another fun
citywide garage sale in the parking
lot of Centennial Bank/Koch & Co.
CPAs, located at the corner of Virginia
Avenue and Taylor Street.
The cost is $15 per space to partici-
pate. Don't delay call the chamber
today to make a reservation. The mar-
ket will operate from 8 a.m. to noon.
We will then get in touch with
our artistic side during the Corks 'n'
Canvas event on Jan. 23. During the
hilarious art class, participants will be
taught how to create their very own
masterpiece. The wine that is included
helps a lot with the creative process.
The event will last from 6 p.m. to 8
p.m., and it will take place in the ar-
cade at 20/10 Optical, across the street
from the Punta Gorda Post Office on
East Marion Avenue.
The cost to participate is $35 per
person, which includes all art sup-
plies, beverages and nibbles one could
want. Reserve a spot by calling the
chamber office.
You'll be known as a masterpiece
artist in no time, and you will be truly
amazed with what you end up with at
the end of the art class.
Then on Jan. 24, the community is
invited to the Charlotte Harbor Event
and Conference Center, 75 Taylor St.,
for a '70s Disco Night. It will last from
7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
If you enjoy the music of the Bee
Gees, Michael Jackson, ABBA, Gloria
Gaynor and the like, then this is the
night for you. Dress to kill, with big
hair, platform shoes and bell bottoms
- once again, they will be all the rage.
Tickets are $10 in advance, and
they can be purchased by calling the
chamber of visiting its website. Tickets
are $15 at the door.
I warned you January was going
to be a busy month. Don't forget,
the Wine & Jazz Festival is scheduled
for Feb. 22. All details and remaining
tickets are available on the chamber's
website.

Vartanian's Stoneware Pottery



celebrates with holiday party


Herald Page 5


Talented potters rent studio space and keep shelves full


SackVartanian's Stoneware Pottery,
1080 Taylor Road, in Punta Gorda
opened its doors for a festive holi-
ay open house on Dec. 7. The studio,
which opened in 2010, was filled with
pots, plates, bowls, basins, cups, cook-
books, friends and families.
The talented potters who rent studio
space at Stoneware Pottery worked
overtime to make sure the shelves and
tables were filled with art. By the end
of the open house, many of the shelves
were empty as art enthusiasts gobbled
up the merchandise for their homes or
to use as unique gifts.
The potters working at the studio
are Karen Solar, Vicki Crossley, Joanne
Eschmann, Marlene Jones, Debbie
Love, Lyn Kronk, Wally Graskoski and
Vartanian. Next door, in Stoneware
Pottery 2, artists Walt Deptula, Suzanne
Conley, Skip Peerless, Jamey Sherman
and Shannon Willis rent space for their
creative pottery and glass fusion pieces.
At each studio, artists have their
own pottery wheels, but the kilns are
provided.
Vartanian has been a potter most of
his life, discovering his love of the art
while in high school. After graduating
from Roger Williams University, he
stayed to teach for 2 years before open-
ing his own studio in Rhode Island.
When Vartanian's two children were
on their own, a friend rented he and
wife Cheryl a condo in Punta Gorda -
a place they had never heard of before.

After vacationing here for two weeks,
the two were in love with the city and
found themselves owners of their own
condo.
In 2003, the couple moved here, and
JackVartanian began teaching at the
Visual Arts Center. He was instrumental
in organizing the VAC's pottery studio.
He still teaches there and says that
most of the professional potters in his
studio started there as students.
Cheryl Vartanian takes time from her
busy career to produce cookbooks. She
provided all of the food served at the
open house, and she won rave reviews.
Her latest cookbook, "Cheryl's Secret
Recipes," is available at the studio.
Although the two studios are a little
off the beaten track, they are quickly
becoming a destination for pottery
lovers. Parking is available in the front
and rear of the building, and visitors
are encouraged to take time to talk to
the artists while they work.
The Stoneware Pottery studios are
open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday
through Saturdays. For more informa-
tion, call the studio at 941-875-8874.

Park, downtown and some of the city's
beautiful parks. Punta Gorda Historic
Mural Society murals and landmark
buildings were pointed out along the
way, including a detailed version of
the old rumor claiming the IMPAC
building was a CIA front.
The business end of the tour was
a 15-minute stop at the Sunstate
Commerce Center, where tour-goers
debarked for a visit to Copperfish
Books andValentina's, which is full of
antiques and vintage jewelry. The stop
worked; many returned with shopping
bags and a recommendation from
Booth to come back to check out the
other unique shops tucked away in the
center.
The boat half of the tour was cap-
tained by Joe Linlivo on King Fisher
Fleet's "Island Star," ably assisted
by first mate Ken Hill. It featured a
round trip along the waterfront from
Fishermen's Village to the bridges,
with Linlivo pointing out landmarks
and adding some marine history to the
afternoon.
If the chamber's goal is to show
off Punta Gorda, it succeeded, even
though the people on the Dec. 13 tour
didn't really need much convincing.
Take Lucille Prudden, who was here
from the Chicago area for a gal's
getaway with friend Karen Martin. She
visited the city earlier while on a trip
to Cape Coral and immediately fell
in love with its friendly people and-
small-town atmosphere. She bought
a house here 10 days later and will be

Punta Gorda's Helen Gochet, known to friends and neighbors as "Grandma'creates Christmas
stockings for needy children every year. This year's batch is going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

a gift to the orphanage every year."
That's a bigger deal than it sounds; she
had eight sisters and one brother. As for
the affinity with sewing, that came from
two sources.
She said, "My mother could really sew.
She made clothes and knitted hats and
mittens. My grandfather was a tailor for
that communist leader of Yugoslavia
(Joseph Tito). My mother learned from
him, and I used to sit beside him and
watch him make things."
One of her fondest childhood mem-
ories is of the family getting together
to do an art project that often involved
cutting and sewing.
"We used to sit around a big table, all
us girls, and make cutouts," she said.
Kids don't do that kind of thing today.
I'm very fortunate my mother taught
us."
The melding of a sense of duty to


RIGHT: Helen Gochet's Chrismas stockings
are one-of-a-kind creations and often contain
whimsical touches like these two.

others and the sewing skills came to
fruition after she married Richard, who
was on the road all the time as part of his
job.
Gochet said, "My husband was an
automated manufacturing engineer and
traveled all over, so I had a lot of free
time. I couldn't sit around; I did a lot of
volunteer things to stay busy."
Those included serving as a volunteer
remedial reading teacher and contrib-
uting to the Billy Graham shoebox gift
program that provides shoeboxes full of
necessities and gifts to needy kids.
Over the years, she dabbled in painting
and rug-making and even mastered pa-
per tole work, which involves cutting out


different prints of an identical image
and layering them to create a 3-D effect.
She said of the latter, "I'm sure it's
a dying art. I saw it in a museum in
London and said, 'I can do that.' I've
had a very good life; anything I wanted
to learn in the arts I did."
Her greatest outlet, however, turned
out to be making Christmas stockings
for needy children. She started making
the stockings in her 40s, and they
became a passion when she saw a plea
on TV.
"When I saw that Danny Thomas
advertisement for St. Jude's, my heart
just got so sick," she said.
She started making large batches of
stockings for St. Jude and Make-A-Wish
Foundation and kept up the tradition
after she and Richard bought a house
here, doing a lot of sewing on the drives
back and forth. In addition to supply-
ing the kids in her neighborhood, she
makes 20 for her church each year and
another 30 for either Make-A-Wish or
St. Jude's. She changes the recipient of
the main batch each year; this year's 30
stockings were delivered to the Bonita


Helen Gochet has pursued many of the fine arts,
including paper tole work, here, used to depict a
French street scene.

Springs' Make-A-Wish Foundation.
She makes her colorful stockings 10 at
a time, spending several hours on each
and relying on her creativity for each
design.
She first cuts out and sews together
the stocking itself and then uses a hot
glue gun to add things like Christmas
ornaments, lace, jewels, buttons, rib-
bons, bells, snowmen or whatever else
says Christmas to her.
They are individual pieces of art and
unlike anything you see in a store. She
likes Victorian themes and uses other
appliques, like Raggedy Ann or Andy,
that children favor.
"The design is very easy. It just comes
to me," she said.
Gochet delights in being called
"Grandma" by the children who enjoy
her stockings, but the young ones aren't
the only people who call her by that
nickname.
Her friend Ginny Dooley said, "She's
just a sweet grandma lady who be-
comes a friend to everyone she meets.
Everyone loves Helen; shes everybody's
grandma."


Punta Gorda residents Helen
Dempsey and Debbie Sell create
blankets and quilts to donate to
people being treated for cancer. The
mother-daughter team recently donat-
ed 42 comforting, attractive handmade
blankets.
The brightly colored crocheted afghans
and the detailed quilts will be given to
those undergoing chemotherapy, thanks
to LindaWilson.
"I'm so grateful that we can get these
out to people. They need these blankets
when they're in treatment," explained
Wilson, a cancer survivor. "It's cold in
those treatment rooms. These blankets
will make people happy and will bring so
much comfort both for their warmth
and their beauty."
Wilson will contact local oncologists to
let them know the blankets are available.
Sell has a long history of generosity
during the Christmas season.
"I've been giving outWalmart gift
certificates to people in need," she said.
"That's my high."
Every year, Debsen Donations, a com-
bination of the two women's first names,
finds a way to help others.
"There was a day in my life when I had
to dig in dumpsters to feed myself and
my baby," Sell explained. "I didn't want
my mother to know I had no money."
Now, that she has enough to feed her-
self and her family, she gives to others.
This year, she began crocheting
afghans, while her mother began making
quilts.
As Sell considered where to donate the

blankets, she meetWilson and men-
tioned she was making blankets.
"I asked her to make me a few,"
Wilson said. "I wanted them to auction
off for the Relay for Life." Wilson is a
leader in Relay for Life of Punta Gorda, a
fundraiser for the American Cancer
Society.
"I was overwhelmed when she brought
in boxes and boxes of these beautiful
quilts," Wilson said, laughing. "I couldn't
believe how many they made. What a
wonderful gift this is to our community."
Sell and Dempsey both work in Sell's
business and make blankets whenever
they have a spare moment.
"I crochet to music," said Sell. "I don't
like the slow songs."
Sell crochets the afghans; Dempsey
makes the quilts.
"It's important to let people know
people like this are in our community,"
concluded Wilson. "There are a lot of
caring people in Charlotte County."
Cancer patients who would like one
of the blankets are invited to call Wilson
at 941-629-6624. Donations of yarn and
fabric would be welcome. To donate
or to join Sell and Dempsey in making
blankets, call them at 941-628-3719.

Scary Movie Night a hit with Tarpons


TARPON PA6E
PUNTA GORDA


By SARAH KITTREDGE
CHS JUNIOR

S GA stands for Student Government Association. At Charlotte High
School, this class is responsible for choosing the theme for daily
costumes during Homecoming spirit week, fundraisers and other
school-related activities.
"For student government, there is a different state project," explained
Megan Piotrowski, a senior. "This year's theme is homelessness."
That's why when the group presented one of its most popular activi-
ties Scary Movie Night the members collected money and goods
for the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition and local food banks.
As a part of the $3 admission, a canned food item was needed to
gain entry. This year, the SGA received 300 canned goods to help fight
hunger.
The SGA members also decorated the gym in a haunted house
theme and dressed accordingly.
George Sansone, SGA sponsor, had the class vote on which movie
would be shown that night.
"It is something different that they get to do, and it's pretty cheap
and inexpensive," said Spencer Asperilla, a senior. "They get to see
their friends and a scary movie for a cheap price."
It appears that this event was a popular one with the students, as
well as being a fun, affordable way to hang out with friends from
school.
School spirit is also a part of this evening. The kids get to show their
support for the school and help the community at the same time.


Author visit inspires Tarpon writers


By ERIKA LIEBENGOOD
CHS SENIOR
T rish Doller was back at Charlotte
High School to discuss her writ-
ten work with the school's Book
Club. Doller is a best selling author who
is known for such works as "Something
Like Normal" and "Where the Stars Still
Shine."
It was her second time visiting
Charlotte High School, and she gave
advice to the readers. As she explained
to the students, publishing books is not
easy and that it's like dating.
"I love coming back to Charlotte High
School. I was excited when I got an email
from Mrs. (Tara) Cain about if I wanted
to come visit Charlotte again. I was super
excited," Doller said.
Doller does school visits often and
even visited her own high school. Having
an author visit and have one-on-one
conversations with the students in the
Book Club was an awesome learning
experience for aspiring writers.
"I was really happy when I heard Trish
Doller was visiting are school again,"
stated Emily Bodnar.
Bodnar had read both of her books
and was ecstatic to discuss the stories
with the author. She had an undecided
opinion of which book of Doller's she
likes best.


Emily Bodnar, a junior at Charlotte High School,
loved meeting author Trish Doller.
She loved character Travis' point
of view in "Something Like Normal,"
and thought the visit was fun and very
interesting to hear.
"The best part about Trish's visit was
seeing her point of view of her books,"
Bodnar said.
Doller autographed copies of her
books during the speaking engagement.
Doller has new books coming out next
year one for adults, and the other for
teens.


Trish Doller signed her books "Something Like Normal" and "Where The Stars Still Shine" during a
speaking engagement at Charlotte High School. Some students won books and bracelets.


The Charlotte High School Book Club enjoyed Trish Doller's company during an author visit.

pons junior varsity wrestling
team finished second in the
Captain Archer JV Wrestling Tour-
nament on Dec. 13. While Riverdale
High School scored more team points
(301) to Charlotte's 276, the Tarpons
crowned more champions four -
than Riverdale, which only had two.
"They had a lot more third-place
finishes than we did and had a few
boys place higher than ours did, but
I'm very happy with our team today,"
said coach Joe Amick.
Venice High School finished in third
at 182 points, just barely edging out
North Port High School's 179. The
Bobcats had three first-place winners.

Tarpon basketball players read to Deep Creek students


embers of the boys junior
varsity and varsity basketball
teams from Charlotte High
School took time out of their school day
and practice schedule to read stories to
all of the kindergarten classes at Deep
Creek Elementary School last week.
This annual event is organized by
kindergarten teacher Stephanie Ham,
who believes in the importance of
having the older students interact and
read with the younger pupils. Ham's son
Mason Bokon is a starter on the varsity
team and son Trevor Bokon starts for
the junior varsity squad.
It is hard to tell who has more fun at
the readings. The 5- and 6-year-olds ask
questions that break the players up with
laughter. Their questions range from,
"Why are elves so skinny?" to "Why are
you so tall?"
The players left the school telling
teammates, "You should have heard
what one kid asked," and they all get
another good laugh our of it.
The players who have participated
in this event in years past say it is a lot

of fun, and they really enjoy seeing the
kids. For many of the players, the visit
is a chance to see their former teachers
again, as some of them are only a few
years removed from being a Deep Creek
Cub.
Ham told her students that the reason
the players are so good in school is
because they like to read. Ham would
go on to tell her students that as they
grow older, they, too, will read "big fat
books with lots of words in them." That
brought laughter to her class.
However, varsity head coach Tom
Massolio knows it is the truth.
He said, "Our team has a very good
chance to be the academic state
champions. We've got six guys with a 4.0


average and a couple that are around a Charlotte High School senior

3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each
row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row,
column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will
appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The
more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

DEAR DR. ROACH:
Would you please explain
the medical purpose of
a primary care doctor?
My expensive insurance
permits me to go wher-
ever and to whomever
I wish. However, I am
told invariably that the
doctor I wish to see will
not see me unless my
primary doctor refers
me. Do those physicians
get a cut every time you
go to another doctor? It
seems that every time I go
to my primary, he sends
me somewhere else for
diagnosis or treatment. I
am beginning to believe
the PC is useless, and this
is a scam. R.L.M.
ANSWER: Full dis-
closure: I have been a
primary care physician
for more than 20 years. I
have found that there are
different styles among
primary care doctors, and
different expectations
among patients. Overall,
a PCP refers a patient to a
specialist in about 9 per-
cent of visits, a marked
increase from 1999, when
5 percent of visits resulted
in a referral. A "cut" of
the specialist's fee, or a
"kickback," is illegal.
In the best of situations,
your primary care doctor
knows all your condi-
tions, uses specialists
judiciously for complex
or difficult diagnoses and
coordinates your care.
Many, but not all, spe-
cialists prefer to deal with
just one problem, diag-
nosis or organ system,
and leave it to the PCP
to make sure your other
conditions are being tak-
en care of. Making sure
one specialist's treatment
doesn't worsen another of
your problems is also in
the domain of the PCP.
Your PCP may be
referring you more often
than you'd like due to
a misunderstanding of
expectations. It may
not feel comfortable to
bring it up, but honest
communication is the key
to a successful relation-
ship. It's OK to say you
prefer not to be referred
as often, and your PCP
should take your con-
cerns seriously.
DEAR DR. ROACH:
I have been suffering
approximately three years
from burning mouth
syndrome. I am female
and 73 years young!
Seeing four ear, nose and
throat specialists, I was
prescribed amitriptyline;
Nexium, since it was
thought that GERD was
the culprit; a mouthwash
with prednisolone; and
another mouthwash,


Dr. Roach

which I rejected, because
I frequently use liquid
Benadryl to reduce the
burning temporarily.
I take Ativan (.5 mg)
every morning for anxi-
ety. I live with stress and
intermittent depression
caused by loneliness; I
lost my husband three
years ago and have no
family. U.E.
ANSWER: Burning
mouth syndrome is
characterized, as its name
implies, by a burning
sensation in the mouth,
with no other dental or
medical cause identified.
It is most common in
older women, and often
is worse in the evening.
Several medical condi-
tions, such as dry mouth
and vitamin deficiency,
can cause a burning
sensation, but in BMS,
none of these is present.
There is an association
between depression
and burning mouth
syndrome. You do sound
as though you may have
some element of depres-
sion. Although you are
on an antidepressant,
amitriptyline, you are
probably on the dose for
nerve pain (usually 10-
50 mg) as opposed to
the antidepressant dose
(often 300 mg per day or
more). Amitriptyline isn't
a great choice for depres-
sion for a woman in her
70s due to side effects at
that high a dose (includ-
ing dry mouth!).
I would consider a dif-
ferent medication, such
as venlafaxine or dulox-
etine. These can reduce
pain directly as well as
treat your depression. An
internist or neurologist
may be able to provide
expertise complementary
to your ENT doctors'.

MUTTS By Patrick McDonnell


Dear Heloise: For this
Christmas dinner, I will
once again host family and
friends and make a turkey
as the main dish. Is it really
true that turkey makes you
tired when you eat it? -
Carol J. in New Hampshire
No, it's not true! We just
think it is, because many
folks overindulge during
the holidays with too
much food and drink, as
well as the stress of the
never-ending rush, rush,
rush!
Everyone has heard
that eating turkey, which
contains tryptophan,
makes you sleepy. Many
meats and foods contain
the same amino acid, but
they don't seem to make
you tired. Plus, tryptophan
is effective as a "sleep" en-
hancer, but many sources
say only when ingested on
an empty stomach. And I'd
say that is NOT the case for
a big old holiday meal!
So, enjoy the turkey,
and, especially if you are
hosting dinner, go ahead
and nap afterward you
earned it! Heloise

Swedish meatballs
Dear Readers: Many of
you have requested the
recipe for Heloise's Spicy
Swedish Meatballs. Try it
as an appetizer for your
next party! You will need:
2 cups breadcrumbs
1/2 cup milk
8 ounces ground beef
8 ounces sausage meat
(spicy)
1/2 teaspoon onion
powder


BABY BLUES By Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott


Hints from Heloise

1/ teaspoon hot pepper
sauce
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/ teaspoon monosodium
glutamate (optional)
5-ounce can sliced water
chestnuts, chopped
In a large bowl, mix the
breadcrumbs and milk Add
all the other ingredients
and mix well. Roll the
meat into balls (about 1 1
inches each) and put on
an ungreased baking sheet
with sides. Bake at 350 F for
about 30 minutes, or until
golden-brown. Remove
from the oven and place on
paper towels to drain. For
even more recipes, order my

More pamphlet by sending
$3 and a long, self-ad-
dressed, stamped (66 cents)
envelope to: Heloise/Main
Dishes, PO. Box 795001, San
Antonio, TX 78279-5001.
Try these meatballs with an
easy-to-make and unusual
jelly sauce. Heat equal parts
grape jelly and cocktail (red,
shrimp) sauce in a sauce-
pan, stirring constantly over
low heat until bubbling.
Pour over the meatballs
and be ready for them to
disappear. Heloise

Don't wait until tomorrow

to tell the people you love


DEAR ABBY: My sister
faced various life-threat-
ening illnesses. She
always said, "Never put
off telling the people you
love how you feel about
them because you might
not have a tomorrow."
She practiced what she
preached, and we all
knew that she loved us.
When she passed away
eight years ago, it was a
painful loss, especially
for our mother.
Last week Mom finally
succeeded in talking
Dad into opening a stuck
drawer in a cabinet.
Inside she found a letter
from my sister that had
been put away and
forgotten years ago. In
the letter my sister wrote
how blessed she felt she
was to have a mother
like ours, how all the
sacrifices Mom made for
her had been appreci-
ated and how much she
loved her.
That long-forgotten
letter is now my mother's
most prized possession.
Please remind your read-
ers not to take tomorrow
for granted, and to tell
those they love how they
feel TODAY. -JULIE'S
SISTER IN LOUISVILLE,
KY
DEAR SISTER: The lov-
ing message your sister
wrote has conveyed her
feelings from beyond the
grave, and it is under-
standable that it is even
more meaningful now
than when it was writ-
ten. I'm glad to remind
readers to verbalize their
affection for each other.
But the written word is
something that can be
savored over and over.
DEAR ABBY: My
brother mocks every-
thing I do, the friends
I spend time with and
my politics. When we're
together, he is often
condescending and
confrontational. I'm
tired of arguing when I
go to his home and he
asks me what's going on.
I have started to answer,
"Nothing." So now he
tells me how "boring"
I am, in addition to his
other criticisms.


Dear Abby

Abby, his comments
are hurtful and I try to
stay away from him, but
I love my little nieces
and want to be around
them as they grow up.
I don't have problems
with anyone but him.
Our other brother
stopped talking to him
years ago, but I don't
think I can do anything
that extreme.
How can I change the
dynamic in our relation-
ship? It doesn't seem to
have progressed since
we were kids. UNDER
ATTACK IN NEW JERSEY
DEAR UNDER
ATTACK: The dynamic
in your relationship
hasn't changed since you
were kids because your
brother never stopped
being a bully. He calls
you boring when you
don't take the bait
because he considers
belittling you to be a
form of entertainment.
You can't change him. If
you point out what he's
doing, he will deny it
and blame you for being
"too sensitive."
You can, however,
understand his childish
motivation. Ignore him
as much as possible and
focus your attention on
your nieces since that's
your only reason for
going over there anyway.
TO MY CHRISTIAN
READERS: I wish each
and every one of you a
very merry and mean-
ingful Christmas.
Dear Abby is written
by Abigail Van Buren,
also known as Jeanne
Phillips, and was found-
ed by her mother, Pauline
Phillips. Write Dear Abby
at www.DearAbby.com
or P.0. Box 69440, Los
Angeles, CA 90069.


"For there is one God, and one mediator between
God and men, the man Christ Jesus."- 1 Timothy 2:5
God uses many of His people as avenues to reach
Him in behalf of others, but remember there is only
one advocate and we must come in His name. Jesus
said "if ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it."

*Fred forgot that he doubled on the
previous round!
Opening lead: Ace of A
It was Esther's birthday and she
asked her husband, Fred, to play with
her at the local duplicate. Fred had
become a bit forgetful as he got on in
years, but he still enjoyed the
occasional game.
West won the first trick and shifted
to the eight of clubs. Esther went into
deep thought. "Oh dear, if I take this
club finesse I might go down at trick
two, and Fred will never play with
me again. I better play the ace and
hope something lucky happens later.
That's usually the way I play slam
hands anyway."
Esther rose with the ace of clubs
and led a trump to her hand. She
ruffed a spade, played another trump


to her hand and ruffed her last spade
high. Dummy's last trump was
played back to her hand and she ran
all of her trumps saying a silent
prayer with every card. She came
down to this position:

East still had to make a discard. In
desperation, he pitched the king of
clubs. With a squeal of birthday
delight, Esther cashed the queen of
clubs and claimed the last two tricks
with the ace and king of diamonds.
Note that it would not have helped
East to discard a diamond. The slam
would still have been made, perhaps
without the squeal.
After the opponents left the table,
Esther said to Fred: "I can't imagine
why that nice man discarded his king
of clubs. Do you think he knew it was
my birthday?"
East was standing nearby and
overheard the question. He leaned
over and whispered in Esther's ear.
"It's not just your birthday, Esther,
Merry Christmas!"
Merry Christmas, everyone!
