Looking back
Happy New Year!
As many look ahead to what
2014 will bring, there are plenty
of people looking to the past... the
long, long, long
ago past when the
mighty, big-toothy,
Pe boat-sized meg-
alodon ruled the
seas (including this
part of the world,
l which once was
S^ megalodon had
"about 276 teeth
LChristy at any given time,"
EIN BER according to the
FEINBERG Florida Museum of
COLUMNIST Natural History.
Though they
swam/cruised/dominated the ocean
between 2 million and 20 million years
ago (give or take a few), their teeth still
can be found locally. One of the best
spots is in the Peace River in DeSoto
County, where several tour options are
available.
I recently joined Mark Renz of Fossil
Expeditions for a day of fossil hunting
in Brownville Park in DeSoto County.
His guests for this adventure included a
couple from the Wisconsin/Minnesota
border. (I know it's a long border, but
it's all cold and gray this time of year.)
They traveled to Southwest Florida for
the sole purpose of fossil hunting in the
Peace River. There also was a family of
five from Glencoe, Ill., a family of four
from Chaska, Minn., a gentleman from
Maryland, and a family of three from
Racine, Wis.
The Racine family included Jack
Simermeyer, the 12-year-old Sheldon
Cooper of fossil hunting and, well, all
things related to science.
"I've always had a knack for finding
fossils," he said.
Jack has been fossil hunting several
times with a 4-inch shark tooth among
his best finds. While some scoured the
river in teams, Jack worked mostly on
his own, patiently sifting through sand,
dirt and rocks for evidence of yester-
day's creatures specifically, "shark
teeth and maybe some new stuff," he
said.
Prior to wading into the river, Mark
displayed a bunch of teeth, bones and
fossils on a picnic table to give us an
idea of what may be found in the river.
He advised us to look closely.
"You're going to find fragments of
bones," he said. "Look for stories on the
bones. What if you find a turtle shell
with an alligator bite on it? ... Look for
the story."
One of the young tourists asked Mark
if dinosaur bones could be found in the
river.
"Nobody has ever found a dinosaur
bone in Florida," he said before telling
about the megalodon. "A 60-foot shark?
Who needs a dinosaur!"
The best time of the year for fossil
hunting in the Peace River is between
now and the spring (before the heavy
summer rains raise the level of the river
again).
Dan and TiffanyWalrack traveled to
DeSoto County from the frigid Midwest
for two days of fossil hunting.
"She's always been into fossil hunt-
ing," Dan said of Tiffany.

Sunny home forecast


Surge in prices to push into 2014


By BRETT SLATTERY
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Median home prices rose again in
2013, continuing a two-year trend that
is good for homeowners and investors,
and makes for an agreeable 2014
forecast.
The annual median sales price of
Charlotte County, single-family homes
surged to $140,000 in 2013. That's
a 17 percent gain over the previous
year's median of $119,900.
Charlotte County home prices hit
bottom in 2011. The median sales
price that year was $110,000. Since


then, the median sales price has risen
from $110,000 to $140,000 for a two-
year gain of 27 percent. The median
price is where half the homes sold for
more; half for less.
These statistics, compiled from
public records, are significant because
they represent all sales made during
the year. This eliminates the often wild
fluctuations resulting from low sales
volumes in month-to-month statistics.
Since 1980, the only two years
exceeding 2013's 17 percent price gain
were the boom years of 2004 and 2005
when prices soared 21 and 40 percent
respectively. Home prices then began a


six-year decline, finally hitting bottom
in 2011.
The two-year, 27 percent increase
in home prices marks the second year
of Charlotte County's robust housing
recovery.

What's driving the market?
Historically low interest rates contin-
ue to drive the market. At 4.63 percent,
a monthly mortgage payment buys
about 25 percent more home than a
mortgage closer to the historic norm

Englewood East Church of Christ evangelist Jim Ratliff is sad and doesn't understand why anyone would steal on Christmas Day the U.S.
flag and flags representing the various branches of the armed services, from the church's memorial garden.

Thieves swipe patriotic flags from Englewood church


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
ENGLEWOOD For two years,
Englewood East Church of Christ on
Gulfstream Boulevard has honored
veterans past, present and future -
with a memorial garden.
What shocked the church's evan-
gelist, Jim Ratliff, was that someone
would steal the flags that flew over
the memorial garden: a U.S. flag, flags
representing each of the branches of
the armed services, and a church flag.
To add insult to injury, one of the


church's security cameras caught the
theft in progress at 4:28 a.m. Christmas
Day.
"All you could see was the light
shining up on the flag, but everything
surrounding it was dark," Ratliff said.
"You could see the flags coming
down. I don't know if it was adults or
teenagers."
Each of the 3-foot-by-6-foot armed
service flags cost the church $60. The
8-foot-by-10-foot U.S. flag cost $90.
The theft was personal for Ratliff.
"It just makes me sad," he said.
The 77-year-old is a veteran himself,

all of your New Year's reso-

this your convenient store of

I love roses. And I love
a parade. So imagine how
excited I am for the 125th
Rose Parade. Can you share
any information about this


year's Rose Parade?
I sure can (using my best
Ron Burgundy voice).
"The 2014 Rose Parade"
airs at 10 a.m. on ABC and
"The 125th Tournament of
Roses Parade" will be on NBC
at 11:30 a.m.
This year's theme is

Dark roadway


concerns motorists


By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT COMMUNITY
NEWS EDITOR
NORTH PORT -It was
the perfect storm. There
was a power outage, the
roadway was dark, and two
cars were approaching the
intersection at Cornelius
Boulevard and Biscayne
Drive at the same time.
The result: 94-year-
old Elliot Helfand of
Englewood smashed his
2006 Chevy into a Ford
Ranger driven by 19-year-
old Chad Varney of North
Port, at about 9 p.m.
Saturday.


The Chevy was knocked
on its side, and the Ford
landed in the middle of the
road. Helfand was trapped
inside and bleeding from
the head.
Nearby, Lysander
Garrabrant had just re-
turned home from dinner
and realized the power was
off in the neighborhood.
He went to grab a flash-
light when he heard the
crash. He ran to the corner
and saw the vehicle on its
side. Someone yelled for
him to "call 911 ."
Garrabrant did.

of 7 percent. And while
rates are still near their
historic low, they have
crept up nearly 1.5 per-
cent from their 3.25 per-
cent bottom.
According to Bankrate.
com, new federal regu-
lations slated for imple-
mentation in 2014 and a
reduction in quantitative
easing are expected to
keep upward pressure on
mortgage rates in 2014.
Bankrate.com analysts
expect the rate increase to
accelerate in 2015.
The low interest rates,
the expectation they will
continue to rise, and
rising home prices have
created an urgency to buy
that has some long-term
fence sitters panicked as
they have seen rates edge
up, prices leap up, and
inventories of homes for
sale plummet to normal
levels.
Our market has also
been bolstered by lower
unemployment, increased
consumer spending,
increased consumer
confidence, increased
exposure from increased
tourism, and a steady
stream of "Best of" media
accolades.
One lesson learned from
our most recent boom/
bust cycle is that the health
of Florida's economy and
its real estate markets are
highly dependent on each
other. They rise and they
fall together.

Fewer distressed
sales
In 2013, 25 percent
of Charlotte County's
single-family home sales
were distressed sales,
meaning they were either
short sales or foreclo-
sures. This is a significant
drop from 36 percent in
2012 and 47 percent in
2011. Rising home prices
continue to reduce the
number of homeowners
who are underwater,
thereby reducing the
number of owners forced
into distressed sales.

Vacant lots
The median sales price
of Charlotte County
single-family vacant lots
sold in 2006 was $47,500.
On a year-over-year ba-
sis, lot prices hit bottom
in 2012 when the median
sales price fell to $5,450.
In 2013, the median
sales price of SF lots rose
to $7,700, a year-over-
year gain of 41 percent.
Previous real estate cy-
cles in Charlotte County
have demonstrated that

vacant lot price are much
more volatile than home
prices. They generally
move in the same
direction as home prices,
but the gains and losses
tend to be much more
extreme.

Flood Insurance
The big unknown
moving forward into
2014 is whether or not
the public or private
sectors will provide
affordable alternatives to
flood insurance policies
underwritten by FEMA.
A total of 19 percent
of Charlotte County's
developed properties are
"pre-firm," meaning they
were built prior to 1975.
Many pre-firm property
owners in low-lying
flood plains have seen
their flood insurance
premiums spike as much
as 10-fold due to the
implementation of the

According to Kevin
Feuser, owner of
Brightway Insurance in
Englewood, progress is
being made in locating
alternatives to FEMA
flood insurance.
"Both the international
and domestic markets
have been working to
provide primary flood
policies outside FEMA,"
Feuser reports. "These

premium of FEMA for a
pre-1975 home located
below the base flood ele-
vation. And while they do
not yet have the backing
of the State Guarantee
Fund, we are using one
provider that is a very
large, well-established,
A-rated company."
Feuser cites the
importance of these
alternatives since "most
pre-firm homes in our
area are below the base
flood elevation."
There remains many
unanswered questions as
the flood insurance saga
unfolds. For example,
will underwriters such
as Freddie Mac, Fannie
Mae, and the FHA allow
borrowers to acquire
mandatory flood in-
surance from providers
outside FEMA?
The Florida
Association of Realtors
recently modified its
purchase contracts to
make home purchases
contingent on securing
affordable flood insur-
ance. And even when
buyers agree to pay the
high premiums, Realtors
are seeing some deals
fall apart because the
premiums increase the
debt-to-income ratio to
levels unacceptable to
lenders.

Rental market
An increasingly short


supply of rental prop-
erties continues to put
upward pressure on the
price to rent. The great
recession and housing
bust created a wave of
homeowners displaced
from their homes by
unemployment and dis-
tressed sales. Their only
option is to rent. The
FHA recently announced
plans to reduce the
waiting period to one
year for qualified buyers
who have been involved
in distressed sales.
Glenda McDoran,
broker and co-owner
of Pineapple Gulf
Property Management in
Englewood, cites a large
influx of workers coming
from outside the area as
another reason for the
rental shortage. "Our
summer months have
traditionally been quiet,"
she reports. "But things
never slowed down this
year. Many of our rentals
are booked before the
current tenants have
moved out. Three- and
four-bedroom homes
are especially hard to
find."

What to expect
in 2014
The big wildcard in
2014 will be the effect of
soaring flood insurance
premiums on property
values in Charlotte

Overall, however, there
is much room for opti-

years of stellar appre-

Improving economic
indicators suggest this
will continue into the

The median sale prices for
single-family homes in the Sara-

There were 531 single-family

November compared to 552 last
November.
According to Coldwell Banker

of homes in North Port is 14

Hermitage House kicks



off the new year


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

ENGLEWOOD -
Manasota Key's historic
Hermitage House has be-
come a haven for artists
who share their creations
with the public.
The new year will be no
different.
Allison Campbell
will kick off 2014 at
the Hermitage with a
puppetry workshop at
2 p.m. Friday. While the
workshop is limited to
18 "active" participants,
other "observers" are
invited to attend.
"It's surprising what
happens with the peo-
ple even surprising
to me," Campbell said
of workshops and the
imaginative exploration
of working with puppets.
Participants will be
working with 18- to
24-inch "table-top
puppets," a style that
emanates partly from
the Japanese Bunraku
tradition, Campbell said.
Table-top puppeteers,
unlike puppeteers of
marionettes or hand


puppets, are in full view
of their audiences. Three
puppeteers are required
to operate one table-top
puppet.
"It requires coopera-
tion between the three
puppeteers," Campbell
said. Larger but similar
puppets have been
incorporated into theat-
rical productions such as
the "Lion King" or "War
Horse."
Campbell, who teaches
at Maryland's Groucher
College, has also designed
sets and costuming for
more than 70 theatrical
productions, including
a New York revival of
"Godspell." On a sabbati-
cal two years ago, she said
she explored theatrical
table-top puppetry.
Campbell will not be
the only artist sharing
work with the public.
Other scheduled artists
include:
4 p.m. Jan. 10 beach
reading by playwrights
Ain Gordon and Rich
Orloff, and visual artist
Steffani Jemison reading
selections from "Street
Fiction."


4:30 p.m. Jan. 31 U.S.
poet laureate Natasha
Trethewey reading from
her work, plus perfor-
mances by composers
Christine Southworth and
Evan Ziporyn.
"What a month to kick
off the year," said Bruce
E. Rodgers, Hermitage
executive director, in
a prepared statement.
"We are thrilled to share
this plethora of talented
artists and it's all free."
The Hermitage, a not-
for-profit artist retreat,
selects accomplished
painters, sculptors,
writers, playwrights,
poets, composers and
other artists for six-week
residencies over two years
since 2003. More than
200 artists have stayed
at Hermitage. Artists are
asked to contribute two
services to the communi-
ty during their stay.
For more information
about the January events
or The Hermitage itself,

picture Oscar in 1988 for
those of you who didn't
make that connection.)
This year's grand
marshal is Vin Scully, "the
voice of the Los Angeles
Dodgers."

I'm hung over. Is there
a cure?
Yes. Invent a time
machine, set it to about
5 p.m. yesterday, eat some
food and don't drink so
much, silly.

I need help coming
up with a New Year's
resolution.
OK. Here are the most
common, according to
www.usa.gov:
Drink less alcohol
(maybe you should have
started this one last night)
Eat healthy food
Get a better education
Get a better job
Get fit (this should
probably be higher on
most lists)
Lose weight (ditto)
Manage debt
Manage stress
Quit smoking
Reduce, reuse and
recycle
Save money
Take a trip

I'm a disappointed
Buckeye who might
cry a little today when
Michigan State plays
in the Rose Bowl. What
bowl games are on TV
today?
There are several Big
Ten teams playing today
along with the more local
University of Central
Florida. Here are today's
bowl games:
Taxslayer.com Gator
Bowl, noon ESPN2:
Nebraska vs. No. 22

The No. 7 Ohio State
Buckeyes will play No. 12
Clemson in the Discover
Orange Bowl at 8:30 p.m.
Friday on ESPN.

I don't care about col-
lege football. I'm more
interested in watching
outdoor hockey games
played awkwardly inside
baseball or football
stadiums. Isn't there
something like that on
TV today?
There sure is. The 2014
Winter Classic this year
offers the Toronto Maple
Leafs vs. the Detroit
Red Wings inside the
Michigan Stadium in Ann
Arbor.
The truly strange out-
door game will take place
Jan. 25 as part of the 2014
Coors Light NHL Stadium
Series when the Los
Angeles Kings will take
on the Anaheim Ducks
in Dodger Stadium (what
a weird sentence). Yes,
they're planning to play
ICE hockey in Dodger
Stadium. Just in case you
were wondering, it was 67
degrees in downtown L.A.
on Jan. 25 last year.

What's the weather


supposed to be like
today?
Low 80s with a slight
chance for showers. I'll
take a gloomy, possibly
rainy day any day over
the nasty near-zero de-
gree weather expected in
Minneapolis today. Brrrr!

John Ross helped take Hill 600 with the 173rd Airborne


By DON MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Editor's note: This story
is the second of two parts.
Part one appeared in the
Dec. 30 edition of the Sun.
Port Charlotte resident
John Ross, at 19, was
sent to South Vietnam in
1967 as a member of the
173rd Airborne Brigade,
part of the 82nd Airborne
Regiment.
In March of 1968, Ross
was involved in the pivotal
Battle of Dak To. Though
injured, he was treated
and kept on fighting to
take Hill 600.
"When everybody
reached the fence we
called in a 'mad minute,'
where we stood up and
we all opened up on the
NVA with everything we
had. During all the firing
we scrambled over the
bamboo fence and moved
on up closer the enemy.
"Moments later, the
NVA opened up on us
with a barrage of fire. It
was bad. We lost a lot of
guys. So we pulled back
below the fence once
more and called in our
105 artillery to soften up
the NVA," he said.
'At this point our first
sergeant realized we were
missing people. He came
around and said, 'I need
some volunteers to go
back over the fence and
find three of these guys
who didn't make it.' I
volunteered and provided
covering fire for the
other four guys. The first
sergeant also volunteered
to lead the group back up
the hill.
"Although we didn't
waste any time going out


and trying to find our
missing men, the enemy
got to them first. When we
a arrived they
were butch-
ering them.
The NVA
had figured
out they
Were being
attacked by
a the 173rd
Brigade.
They hated us because we
collected enemy ears.
"I was the lead element
when we approached the
butchering. We bagged
up what was left of them
and brought them back
to our lines in ponchos,"
Ross said. 'About that
time three NVA guys came
out of the bamboo and I
opened up on them with
my M-60 and killed them
all.
"We all made it back to
our lines with the three
guys they had butchered
in our ponchos. After that
our brigade pulled back.
The following day we took
the hill away from the
NVA.
"We found an incredible
hospital and adminis-
trative complex dug into
the hill. It still had lots of
supplies and equipment
they left behind when
they withdrew under
a pounding from our
artillery. On the admin-
istrative side we found
maps, radio equipment,
lots of ammunition and
weaponry.
"I thought the NVA left
a powerful statement by
not leaving any of their
wounded or dead behind
when they pulled out.
They left nothing in the
hospital but a lot of blood


PHOTO PROVIDED
Ross is presented the Bronze
Star, with a Combat-V for
Valor, for the part he played in
the attempted rescue of three
Airborne troopers who were
killed by the NVA during one
of the biggest battles of the
Vietnam War. He also received
two Purple Hearts for his war
wounds during the ceremony.

and bandages," he said.
A short time after cap-
turing the NVA complex,
the 173rd was overrun by
NVA when they ran out of
ammunition during a fire-
fight in the Dak To area.
It was just north of the
enemy hospital complex
in the Central Highlands.
Their company was
attacked by the 71st NVA
Regiment. They were very
good, tough regular sol-
diers. The NVA had been
fighting for a long time
against the Americans and
before them, the French in
Vietnam.
"When we ran out of
ammunition it came
down to us fighting with
entrenching tools and
machetes," Ross said. "It
was close hand-to-hand
combat. The fight became
so vicious the NVA ran.


PHOTO PROVIDED
Sgt. John Ross is pictured with two of his young charges in Vietnam just before he finished his
year in the country and left for the states in October 1968.


After his first tour of duty
inVietnam, Ross returned
to Fort Bragg and worked
in the 82nd Airborne
Headquarters Company
until he got bored and put
in for a transfer back to
Vietnam in August 1969
with the 173rd Brigade on
a second tour.
Ross never made it. He
was injured in a diving
accident at his brother's
home in Tampa and
wound up inWalter
Reed Army Hospital in
Washington, D.C., for
three months. At the
end of his hospital stay,
the young sergeant was
released from the Army on
Jan. 14,1970.
After he got out of
the service he attended
Northern Virginia
Community College
where he met a professor,


a retired State Department
employee, who got him
hooked up with Pinkerton
Detective Agency, which
was working with the U.S.
Secret Service. Ross was
involved in the inaugu-
ration of two presidents,
Carter and Reagan,
while working with the
Pinkertons for a decade.
Then he started his own
private investigation busi-
ness and contracted with
the federal government on
a number of projects in-
volving the U.S. Monetary
Fund, World Bank and
U.S. Postal Service.
After that he went to
work for Time-Warner in
1993 until 2001, when the
VA retired him because
of his medical condition.
At that point, he bought
a home in Port Charlotte
and moved down here.


By then Ross had gone
through wives and had a
grown son, John III, who
lives locally.
"He's the greatest son in
the world," he said. As for
his wives, the ex-airborne
trooper explained, "Living
with someone with PTSD
(post-traumatic stress
disorder) is not a fun
experience."
Looking back on his
life, Ross said, "I fought
in Vietnam with the
173rd Airborne Brigade
- the finest men I have
ever known."

Performing arts blossoming in new year


he performing arts
groups in Char-
lotte County have
planned a huge weekend
for us next week. Wheth-
er we enjoy theater or
music or both, we could
be in a theater all week-
end.
The Charlotte Players
presents its second
Langdon Playhouse
production of the 2013-
2014 season, "2 Across."
This touching comedy,
written by Jerry Mayer,
involves two people, a
man and a woman, who
meet on a train leaving
San Francisco and both
struggle through the New
York Times crossword
puzzle. The production
was directed by and stars
Ian Bisset along with
actress Jenni Elliott.
All performances are
at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 10, 11,
16, 17 and 18, and 2 p.m.
Jan. 12. in the Langdon
Playhouse, 1182 Market
Circle, Port Charlotte.


Tickets are $15 for adults
and $8 for students for
limited general admission
seating. Doors will open
for seating at 7 p.m. For
additional information
or to purchase tickets,
please call the Charlotte
Players office at 941-
255-1022 from 10 a.m. to
3 p.m. Monday to Friday.

The Concert Band and
the Charlotte Symphony
conspired so we can
revel in two concerts in
one day.
At 2 p.m. Jan. 12,
the Charlotte County
Concert Band will
present "The White


Cliffs" in the theater
of the Cultural Center
of Charlotte County.
The title refers to the
White Cliffs of Dover,
which face the European
continent at the narrow-
est part of the English
Channel, forming a
symbolic guard against
attack.
The concert repertoire
has been selected by the
conductor, DeVere Fader,
to highlight English
music, including sym-
phonic, folk, and popular
selections. Among the
music featured will be
"Chaconne" from "1st
Suite in E-flat for Military
Band," by Gustav Holst,
and Ralph Vaughn
Williams' "English Folk
Song Suite."
Guest vocalist Kim
Campos will sing selec-
tions from the musical
"Oliver" and favorites
from a collection of mu-
sic from Andrew Lloyd
Webber. The concert will


conclude with an ar-
rangement of music from
the rock group Queen.
Tickets are available
at 941-625-4175 or at
the Cultural Center box
office. Prices are $11 for
Cultural Center members,
$12 others in advance, or
$13 at day of show.
*0@
After the band concert,
there is time for dinner
before we head to the
Charlotte Performing
Arts Center in Punta
Gorda for "Encore," pre-
sented by the Charlotte
Symphony Orchestra
under the direction of
Maestro Raffaele Ponti.
The symphony will
perform "Pictures at an
Exhibition" by Modest
Petrovich Mussorgsky.
This suite of 10 move-
ments was inspired
by the paintings of
Mussorgsky's friend,
Russian artist Viktor
Hartmann.
In a tribute to both


artists, 10 of the Visual
Arts Center's leading
artists have created
their own work inspired
by the music. The art-
works will be on display
at the concert, and the
artists will be available
to speak to concertgoers
before the show and
during intermission.
From Jan. 14 to Feb. 18,
the art will be on
display at the symphony
offices, 6210 Scott St.,
Punta Gorda.
The concert begins at
7:30 p.m., with a precon-
cert lecture at 6:30 p.m.
For ticket information,
call 941-205-9743, or go
to www.charlottesym
phony.com.
*@@
Finally, at 7:30 p.m.
Jan 13, Burnt Store
Presbyterian Church
presents Bay Street
Brassworks, the first
performance in its
Winter Concert Series.
The versatile brass


quintet performs a wide
variety of musical genres,
ranging from Dixieland,
show tunes, classic rock,
swing, big band and
everything in between.
Additionally, guest
organist Larry Rhoades
will collaborate with the
brass quintet to perform
both familiar and classi-
cal arrangements.
For tickets or more
information, contact
the church office at
941-639-0001 from
9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Monday through Friday,
or by email to bspc83@

Happy New



Year and



'Veselykh Svyat!'


All is well; we are
now in the year
2014. It is my and
my wife Katrusia's plea-
sure to be able to wish all
our relatives, friends and
neighbors good health
and lots of luck, success
in all endeavors and
achievements of all goals,
including traditional new
year's resolutions, in this
new year of 2014, and
beyond.
In addition, my wife
Katrusia and I want to
wish all our relatives and
all our Ukrainian friends
"Veselykh Svyat" (happy
holidays) of the Nativity
of Our Lord, Jesus Christ,
which all Christian
Ukrainians in Ukraine
and many in the western
world, including here in
Southwest Florida, will
be observing in accor-
dance with the Julian
calendar next week. The
observance will com-
mence Monday, Jan. 6,
a strict fast day, with
the traditional "Svyata
Vecherya" (Holy Supper)
consisting of 12 meatless
dishes prepared from
potatoes, flour, beans,
cabbage, mushrooms,
fish and fruits. The first
dish is the traditional
millennia-old "kutya,"
consisting of wheat
grains with poppy seeds
and honey, often with
crushed nuts and/or
raisins.
The 12 dishes are in
honor of the 12 apostles,
although some say that
each dish is dedicated to
each month of the year.
The actual "Rizdvo"
(Christmas) will be cel-
ebrated Tuesday, Jan. 7,
to be followed by two
more holidays: Synaxis of
the Most Holy Mother of
God on Jan. 8, and Saint
Archdeacon Stephan on
Jan. 9.
*0@
What will 2014 be like?
The world will com-
memorate the 100th
anniversary of the start,
in August 1914, of "the
war to end all wars" -
World War I.
Ukrainians worldwide,
and many non-Ukraini-
ans, including Georgians,
Russians and others,
will celebrate the 200th
anniversary of the birth
of the national Ukrainian
prophet, poet, artist
and revolutionary Taras
Shevchenko. According
to official decree by the


government of Ukraine,
nationwide celebrations
will take place through-
out the year 2014.
There will be other,
less-important commem-
orations, including many
family observances,
such as my own 70th
anniversary of leaving my
family, home and country
on July 7, 1944, at the
age of 16, ostensibly for
a relatively short time.
I never saw my father
again, as he was deported
to Siberia where he died,
and was lucky to see my
mother and my siblings
(who were also deported
with my father) 45 years
later, after the collapse of
the "evil empire."
This year, the month
of August will have five
Friday, five Saturdays,
and five Sundays. This
phenomenon occurs only
once every 823 years. I
am told that the Chinese
call it "pocketful of
money." Not being able
to speak or understand
Chinese, I have to believe
it, albeit reluctantly.
*0@
The traditional way
to eat "SvyataVecherya"
and to perform certain
rituals, some of which
are remnants of the
pre-Christian traditions
of ancient Ukrainians,
was and still is at home
with family. Here in
North Port, the Ukrainian
American community
started a new tradition
to have the meal at a
church or community
hall, due to many elderly
people who are unable
to prepare the traditional
dishes.
The communal supper
at St. Andrew's Religious
and Cultural Center
will be served at 6 p.m.
Monday, and at St. Mary's
Ukrainian Catholic
Church Parish Center, at
5 p.m. All are invited to
both.

Local designer loves 'green'


By CAROL BRUYERE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Vicki Ciampa loves
"green" design. Not the
color, but the environmen-
tally friendly elements she
can incorporate into your
home or business.
Ciampa, partner at
Design Accent Interiors in
Punta Gorda, was search-
ing for a way to set herself
apart from other designers
when she became interest-
ed in green design.
While Ciampa has an
eye for good design and
years of experience, she
realized that she could
offer clients a wealth of
knowledge on the subject
by becoming Live Green-
Live Smart certified.
Surfaces, treatments
and furnishings that are
recycled, recyclable, or
energy efficient help create
green design, but they
aren't always easy to find.
"I want to be a resource
for these products and
educate consumers on
what's available and where
to find it," she said.
Many people who are
updating or renovating a
space are not aware of the
benefits of green products.
They can be more expen-
sive, but could be worth


the investment if you're
committed to a healthier
environment for your fam-
ily or employees. Ciampa
encourages use of paints,
floor coverings, fabrics and
furnishings that reduce or
eliminate toxic chemical
emissions.
Of course, recycled
or recyclable products
also fall into the "green"
arena. Countertops can
be made from crushed
glass bottles or even paper.
Carpets are being made
with corn sugar, rather
than petroleum, and some
carpets can be recycled
when they've outlived their
usefulness. Or, how about
a sculpture created from
old auto parts?
Design elements that
originate from easily
renewable resources
contribute to green design
in a big way. Bamboo and
cork are just two that are
becoming increasingly
popular and diversified.
Sustainability also adds to
the value.
"Granite countertops
maybe more expensive,
but they last for a long,
long time," Ciampa said.
Additional savings could
be realized by choosing
energy efficient options
that lower your utility bills.

Ciampa's favorite green

"Reclaimed wood floors.
And then recycled glass

While green design has
yet to become popular
in Southwest Florida,
Ciampa's goal is to "focus

I OUR VIEW


Our wishes

for a very

happy new year
OUR POSITION: The new
year traditionally presents
opportunities to start fresh,
correct a course and move
forward with optimism.
Whether you were in
Times Square with
thousands of revelers
for the ball drop; on the couch
in front of the TV or at one
of numerous New Year's Eve
celebrations held in Southwest
Florida, we've turned a new
page.
The dawning of a new year,
in this case 2014, is always a
refreshing time.
How often do you hear the
refrain: "Man, I'm glad that year
is over." Well, while we hope
that is not a sentiment every-
one shares, we do look forward
to a fresh start in 2014 and are
excited about opportunities
that may or may not present
themselves.
With our best wishes for a
safe and prosperous new year,
we would like to share some of
our expectations, hopes and
wishes for 2014:
Before spring, Congress
agrees to some sort of relief
from changes in flood insur-
ance coverage that would prove
financially crippling to many
Florida homeowners. A biparti-
san delegation of senators and
representatives should be able
to at least delay the gutting of
subsidies that would result in
rates as much as three or four
times higher for those living in
flood-prone areas, or near the
beach.
More than one qualified
vendor comes forward to bid
on reopening Warm Minerals
Springs. The Sarasota County
Commission and North Port
City Commission are able to
quickly agree on a course of
action and expedite the process
to the cheers of hundreds of
Springs regulars who will soon
be able to enjoy the soothing
waters.
The Arcadia City Council
finds a new city administrator
who not only satisfies its
expectations but who displays
the leadership the city needs to
move forward. The person has a
strong background in repairing
fractured relationships and
budgets.
Kitson and partners an-
nounce a ground-breaking is
planned for their long-antic-
ipated but recession-delayed
Babcock Ranch project. The
first commercial property
should be up and running
by early 2015 with at least
three dozen high-end homes
expected to be occupied about
the same time. And, the entire
community will be powered by
Florida's largest, private solar
plant.
The Charlotte County,
Punta Gorda, North Port and
Englewood chambers of com-
merce, along with the Charlotte
CountyVisitors Bureau and
Visit Sarasota embark on a
unified effort to lure tourists
to our beaches and recreation
areas with a nationwide cam-
paign touting ecotourism and
cheap rates. At the same time,
the groups announce a major
sports facility in South Sarasota
County that will complement
its world rowing facility and
provide an economic boost for
Venice, North Port and Port
Charlotte.
Gov. Rick Scott announces
he has decided it would be fool-
ish to give up billions of dollars
in federal Medicaid expansion
funding and declares he will
make it his personal battle to
enlighten Florida's Legislature.
Scott said he will veto any
cost-cutting measures passed
by the lawmakers until they see
the light.
Democrat and gubernatorial
candidate Charlie Crist says


Scott is moving in the right
direction.


LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

Grateful for
Fawcett care
Editor:
My husband Tom and I arrived
in Port Charlotte to enjoy our
"winter" home in sunny Florida
on Dec. 11 from Massachusetts.
A week later my husband was
rushed to Fawcett Memorial
Hospital
He had a heart attack that
showed four blocked arteries.
Within an hour he was rushed
into surgery.
I can't say enough about the
surgeon, Dr. John McKinney, and
cardiologist, Dr. Triola. They are
absolutely the best.
The care in CICU and out of
ICU was with the most caring
and professional nurses and
assistants. We couldn't ask for
anything better.
My husband is on the road to
recovery. Year-round residents
should be thankful to have a
facility like Fawcett Memorial
with the doctors and staff who
are there.

"Freedom of speech" does not
mean that we can say whatever
we want, whenever we want,
wherever we want or about
whom we want. The applicable
adage here, I believe, is, "Your
rights end where my nose
begins."
Remember the First
Amendment to the Constitution.
Congress did not sanction,
penalize or otherwise "make a
law" to suppress the views of
Mr. Robertson or his family in
any way at all. A&E, did. One
of A&E's parent companies
is, by the way, Disney. But all
companies have the right to
regulate their own content and
that of both direct and indirect
employees as it reflects on the
organization's core values.
So the First Amendment only
protects one from government
reprisals, not the A&E TV
Network.
I suggest to the writer that he
spend more time reading the
amendments he alludes to, and
has no understanding of, and
less time listening to Limbaugh
and Beclks "faux" news because
those imbeciles are just leading
you by the nose with lies, half
truths and incomplete or out-of-
context statements and quotes.
They do it for money and money
alone.
The First Amendment does
gives them the right to do that.

No stake
in the economy
Editor:
John Marshall wrote a biogra-
phy of GeorgeWashington. He
said, "To understand the man
you have to understand the
environment he came from."
The first part is a history of the
United States. It is very complete.
Marshall was close to early his-
tory 1755-1835. Jamestown was
formed in 1607 and almost 200
years of history occurred before
the United States Constitution
was established.
Most know absolutely nothing
about those 200 years that
formed George Washington
and other great Americans.
We tend to believe that such
men and their product the
War of Independence and the
Constitution came out of a
vacuum.
Early settlements were
proprietary land grants to
aristocratic personages that
resided in England. They were
corporations, speculation, held
in trust and regulated for the
benefit of the proprietors.
From the beginning, settlers
set up representative forms of
government to deal with local
conditions and the aspirations
of the settlers. It was a 200-year
experiment in self-government
and increasing cooperation
among the various colonies in
the fight against proprietors
and the Crown for individual
freedom and self-determination.
Americans were necessarily
self-reliant; individual initiative
and enterprise made the people
prosper.
Before individuals were
allowed to have a stake in their
own efforts, the colonies failed.
Georgia, one of the last colonies
founded initially failed because
the bi-laws instituted by pro-
prietors excluded recompense
from individual effort. All early
Americans earned their bread
and prosperity from their own
efforts on their own property.
Today only 5 percent have any
personal stake in the economy.

a holier-than-thou tone.
Her implication that fol-
lowers of Duck Dynasty, rural
Americans and fundamentalist
Christians are "unenlightened"
(that's elitism for stupid) only
highlights her limited knowledge
of her subject.
All of God's creatures were
made in two varieties, male and
female. Why? To sustain the
species.
You can argue the merits
of her remarks but what you
cannot argue is the truth about
sexuality. There are male and
female for a reason. That doesn't
mean that gays, lesbians,
trans-gendered and bi-sexual
people shouldn't be afforded civil
rights. It is simply stating a fact.
Two creatures of the same sex
cannot procreate.
And God or nature, whichever
you believe, designed things for
the continuation of the species.
Was Robertson less eloquent
than the Kathleen Parkers of
liberal America might like? Of
course he was.
But that used to be the great
thing about America. People
from all backgrounds, beliefs
and, yes, even sexual orientation
could express their opinions. Phil
Robertson and Kathleen Parker
have both exercised that right.
It is up to each of us to decide.
It looks like plenty of good
Americans already have.

Real Christians
'judge not'
Editor:
Phil Robertson leads a
hillbilly religious cult. He and
his followers are not Christians;
they are antithetical to Christian
beliefs. But they believe Phil's
teachings that gays cannot go
to heaven and that black people
were happier before welfare and
equal rights.
Members of that hillbilly cult
agree that prejudice is accept-
able, and they worship Reverend
Phil because of his stand for
hate and against minorities. To
the hillbilly cultists, anything
they disagree with is assigned
the pejorative term, politically
correct, so their followers will
recognize it as a hillbilly.
Reverend Phil attracts
followers such as Palin, Cruz
and Jindal, who worship
corporate interests above the
people's and brown-nose the
wealthy for a living. But they
then are opposed to Christ,
who championed the poor and
weak and stood for peace. Those
are socialist concepts to Phil's
faithful. But can a camel pass
through the eye of a needle, or
can right-wing fanatics?
If hillbilly cultists were even
partially Christian, they would
accept that Christ died to forgive
everyone's sins, not just theirs.
So real Christians expect many
gay and black people are in
heaven and are not expecting
many judgmental anti-Christian
hillbillies. After all, the Christian
Bible demands that people
"judge not" as that is God's job,
not Phil's or his followers.
Even Pope Francis says he has
no right to judge homosexuals.
But cultists see no reason for a
religion that does not give them
the right to judge themselves
superior to someone-- anyone.

Charlotte County major roadway improvements


several major road-
way improvements
are underway in
Charlotte County includ-
ing Burnt Store Road,
County Road 771 (Gas-
parilla Road), Edgewater
Drive, Midway Boulevard
andWinchester Boule-
vard. These improvements
expand vehicular capac-
ity enhance the safety of
pedestrians and bicyclists,
and upgrade existing
infrastructure. Enhance-
ments include improving
hurricane evacuation
routes, replacing bridges,
major drainage and utility
improvements, roadway
lighting improvements,
as well as sidewalks and
bike lanes in multiple
locations.
Burnt Store Road will be
widened from a two-lane
to a four-lane divided
roadway between the Lee
County line and a point
north of Zemel Road. This
project was designed to
accommodate anticipated
traffic growth and includes
drainage improvements,
street lighting, utility
relocations, and 6-foot
sidewalks on both sides of
the roadway. Funding for
this project comes from the
one-cent sales tax.


County staff is prepared
to submit a recommenda-
tion to the Board of County
Commissioners to award
the construction contract
on Jan. 14. Construction
will take approximately 18
months to complete and is
expected to begin in early
2014.
C.R. 771 (Gasparila
Road) will be widened
to a four-lane divided
roadway from State Road
776 to the vicinity of
Rotonda Boulevard East.
Design elements include
sidewalks, bicycle facilities,
and an additional left turn
lane for westbound traffic
to turn off of S.R. 776 to
southbound C.R. 771.
The engineering firm
is currently working on
100 percent design plans,
permitting and final
alignments which should
be complete in early
2014. The roadway will be


constructed using a "con-
struction manager-at-risk"
method, which is qualifica-
tions-based and includes
a guaranteed maximum
price (GMP). Staff is
currently working with the
contractor to develop a
GMP to present to the BCC
for review and approval.
Our real estate services di-
vision is working to acquire
the identified properties
needed to construct the
roadway. Construction is
projected to begin in the
spring of 2014 and should
take approximately 24
months to complete.
Edgewater Drive will
be widened between
Harbor Boulevard and
Midway Boulevard from
a two-lane to a four-lane
arterial roadway designed
to better serve the central
portion of the County
and to accommodate
anticipated traffic
growth. Three bridges
will be replaced over the
West Spring Lake, East
Spring Lake, and Sunrise
Waterways. The design
includes five intersection
improvements (including
four roundabouts), a
raised median, curb and
gutter, sidewalks and bike
lanes, and landscaping.


Funding for this project
comes from the one-cent
sales tax.
The 100 percent
design plans have been
provided to county
staff and the plans are
now under review. The
design team is working to
resolve conflicts with FPL
facilities. Once the review
is complete and conflicts
are resolved, the package
will be submitted to the
purchasing department
in preparation for bid so-
licitation. Construction is
estimated to begin in late
March 2014 and will take
approximately 24 months
to complete.
Midway Boulevard will
be widened to a four-lane
roadway between Harbor
Boulevard and Kings
Highway. Downstream
stormwater improve-
ments are necessary be-
fore widening this section
of Midway Boulevard. The
U.S. 41 micro tunnels and
weirs project is underway
at the Pompano, Elkcam,
and Fordham Waterways,
which will increase
drainage capacity to
accommodate widening
Midway Boulevard.
The Midway Boulevard
design plans are


approximately 90 percent
complete and rights-of-
way acquisition is
approximately 70 percent
complete. Construction
of the Midway Boulevard
widening project is
estimated to be advertised
for bid in the summer of
2014 with construction
to begin soon thereafter.
Construction will take
approximately 36 months
to complete.
Winchester Boulevard
(south extension) pro-
vides for a new four-lane
divided roadway begin-
ning at the intersection of
S.R. 776 andWinchester
Boulevard and continuing
south to C.R. 775 (Placida
Road). Construction
includes roadway light-
ing, sidewalks, drainage
improvements and utility
work. Major components
of this project include
signalization of the S.R.
776 and Placida Road
intersections. When
completed, this project
will result in a four-lane
connector from Placida
Road to the Charlotte/
Sarasota County line, with
a direct connection to
Interstate 75 via River Road
within Sarasota County.
Construction began


Nov. 25. The first phase
includes the installation of
erosion control measures
and endangered species
mitigation. Negotiations
continue for a scope and
fee modifying the plans at
the Winchester Boulevard
North/S.R. 776 intersection
to include a right turn lane
onto Winchester Boulevard
North. As construction
progresses, the final
design and permitting of
the intersection will be
complete and the inter-
section improvements will
be rolled into this project.
Construction is expected
to take 18 months to
complete.

Report: Man



attacks elderly victim


PUNTA GORDA-
Authorities arrested a
Cape Coral man after
he attacked an elderly
driver over a parking lot
argument, according to a
Charlotte County Sheriff's
report.
The victim, an 83-year-
old man, called the Punta
Gorda Police Department
Oct. 9 to report he had
been battered in the
parking lot of Publix at
2310 Tamiami Trail, Punta
Gorda, the report shows.
The victim told police
he had argued with a man,
later identified as Scott
Sidney Shipman, 49, of
Cape Coral, after Shipman
complained about the
victim's car blocking the
store entrance while the
victim let his wife into the
store. The report states the
victim gave Shipman an
obscene gesture and drove
away.
Shipman allegedly ran
after the victim, grabbed
his arm and twisted it,
while saying he would
break it.
According to the report,
the victim was bleeding
profusely from an injury
to his left hand and was
treated at Charlotte
Regional Medical Center
in Punta Gorda. The
victim later decided to
pursue charges.
The Publix store man-
ager provided authorities
with security footage of
Shipman checking out,
and obtained his name
from a receipt for his pur-
chase, the report shows.
Shipman was arrested
Monday on a charge
of battery on a person
65 years old or older.
Shipman remained at
the Charlotte County Jail
Tuesday on $7,500 bond.

Just before 1 a.m.
Monday, deputies re-

ing a gray Honda sedan
parked in the southbound

south of Bermont Road,
the report shows.
Deputies reportedly
found Derek Matthew
Conrad, 40, of the 1500
block of S.E. West Farms
Road, Arcadia, asleep
in his car. Conrad woke

him, and was checked
by emergency medical
personnel.
Conrad did not appear
to be intoxicated, but was
unable to say where he
was coming from, accord-
ing to the report.
Deputies searched
Conrad and found multi-
ple clear plastic baggies.
One of the baggies
contained five metha-
done pills, and five other
baggies contained a total
of 8.5 grams of crystal
methamphetamine, the
report shows.
Deputies arrested
Conrad on charges of
possession of metham-
phetamine with the intent
to sell, possession of

warning to settle down,
according to a report.
According to Sarasota

ied against her in Maine.

Report: Three
arrested on drug
charges
ENGLEWOOD -
Suspicious behavior in
a parking lot led Marine
Patrol Unit deputies to
arrest three Sarasota
County men on drug
charges Friday, according
to a Charlotte County
Sheriff's report.
The deputies were in
the Publix parking lot
at 8725 Placida Road
around 5:20 p.m. when
they noticed the driver of
a gray Dodge pickup was
staring at them intently
as a passenger slid down
in his seat.
The deputies drove
toward the pickup, which
exited the parking lot
in the wrong direction
before pulling onto Cape
Haze Drive without
stopping at the stop sign,
the report states.
The deputies pulled the
pickup over a few blocks
away and noticed the
driver, Michael Steven
Langford, 51, of the 1800
block of Bayonne Street,
Sarasota, appeared to be
hiding something.
The deputies found
methamphetamine in the
pickup, the report shows.
Langford and his
passengers, Brian Randall
Frost, 39, and John David
Frost, 43, both of the 100
block of Ogburn Street,
Osprey, were arrested and
charged with possession
of methamphetamine
and possession of drug
paraphernalia. All
three were taken to the
Charlotte County Jail, and
later were released on
$3,500 bond each.

No missing child
in Venice
VENICE -After an
extensive search of the
Venice East subdivision
on Sunday, authorities
determined that a young
girl was not abducted,
according to the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office.
This followed a report
by a Venice High School
ninth-grader who said
she witnessed the abduc-
tion, which triggered the
search.
The Sheriff's Office
launched mounted and
air units, along with
deploying its K-9s as part
of the search. Neighbors
in the subdivision also
went into the streets with
flashlights to help with
the search.
It originally was re-
ported that the girl might
have been abducted by
a white male wearing
a navy blue hooded
sweatshirt and blue jeans,
but that later proved to be
untrue.

Local leaders to redouble their efforts in 2014


By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER
As local leaders look
ahead at the new year,
they're hoping to ac-
centuate the positives
in their communities as
building blocks for 2014.
At St. David's Episcopal
Church Jubilee Center
in Englewood, for
instance, Pat Knox said
the number of homeless
families they provided
aid to in 2013 nearly
tripled, which strained
their resources.
But, there could be
brighter days ahead, ac-
cording to Knox. She said
the work of Dr. Robert
Marbut, a consultant
hired by Sarasota County
to assess the plight of the
homeless community
throughout the county,
brought with it a sug-
gestion that identified
Englewood as the home
of a new "portal" for
homeless families.
The location for the
portal, or new shelter,
has yet to be determined,
according to Knox. And
there has already been
a push back from the
community who have a
"not-in-my-backyard"
mentality.
But, Knox said it was
crucial for the commu-
nity to realize the face
of homelessness has
changed over the years,
and the new shelter
would cater strictly to
families in crisis, not
individual people who
are chronically homeless.
Of course, the new
shelter will depend large-
ly on dollars, she said.
"We're trying to
identify a location that
is appropriate for what
is needed, but it's all
about funding," Knox
said. "We've got to


get everyone working
together and going in the
same direction."

Aiming at
synthetic drugs
Synthetic narcotics and
their potential health
risks were a part of the
conversation in 2013
in both Charlotte and
Sarasota counties, as
they were at the heart of
several alleged criminal
incidents, including child
abuse and an officer-in-
volved shooting.
Legislators in both
counties are working on
ordinances that would
ban the substances out-
right, a move that would
be music to the ears of
Diane Ramseyer, director
of Drug Free Charlotte
County.
Ramseyer said
Charlotte County was in
a "great position" moving
into 2014, as teen drug
use has been on the
decline, even though
alcohol use remains the
number one issue among
teens.
Drug Free Charlotte
will continue to have a
strong focus on alcohol,
along with marijuana
and synthetic drug use
among teens, she added,
and hopes the commu-
nity as a whole realizes
their role in keeping
kids away from harmful
substances.
"We need to focus
on renewing what it
means to be a coalition.
Everyone has a role in
this," Ramseyer said.

Kid's Needs
Children will contin-
ue to be the focus of
Kid's Needs of Greater
Englewood, an organi-
zation that aims to feed


I iF~ ~ ~ El r~i n~ ~ ivu u~ u~ I
LoQ onto ww.n, stammewsnaners met for ~reac.mQ mews


and clothe students who
need a helping hand.
Kid's Needs aids
roughly 2,000 Englewood
area children each year,
according to Nancy
Buechler, who said the
students who are receiv-
ing free or reduced lunch
jumped by 60 percent in
2013.
But, even as she
doesn't expect those
numbers to drop in 2014,
she said the organization
will continue to provide
as much aid for the
community's children as
they can, including food,
clothing, toiletries and
scholarship dollars for
those students who are
college bound.
"We wish the number
of kids we help would
go down next year but
we don't see that hap-
pening. We think it will
remain steady, or slowly
increase," she said.

Looking for
direction
Direction was some-
thing that eluded North
Port City Commissioners
at times in 2013, as they
had opposing views
on issues ranging from
Warm Mineral Springs


to the development
of commercial zones
throughout the city.
For Vice Mayor Rhonda
DiFranco, city com-
missioners made some
truly positive gains in
2013, including passing
a domestic partnership
registry which affords
unmarried couples many
of the same legal protec-
tions as married couples.
DiFranco, too, was
proud of the new spe-
cialized assisted living
facility being built at
South Biscayne that will
cater to Alzheimer's pa-
tients and bring new jobs
to North Port, along with
paying off a $10 million
bond that went toward
the construction of City
Hall, she said.
But, many of the
decisions made by
commissioners went
unnoticed, DiFranco
added, especially those
that were "community
driven."
"We opened and built
more new parks for
families in North Port.
In addition, a children's
water park is currently
underway for the Atwater
facility. And we have
been moving forward on
obtaining the green-way

to the Sun.

Membership
grows
The North Port Area
Chamber of Commerce
would prefer a different
type of steady growth, as
they hope their member-
ship continues to rise in
2014.
According to Director
Bill Gunnin, the goal is to
hit 600 members in 2014,
and is entirely achiev-
able, he said.
It was another banner
year for the group,
according to Gunnin,
which saw their mem-
bership grow by another
8 percent, using staff and
a host of volunteers to
complete an "Extreme
Makeover" on their
North Port-based office,
and a board of directors
that saw expansion
due to the growth in
membership.
The new year will also


see the Chamber focus
on "internal changes,"
Gunnin said, including
enhancing their website
and a greater presence
on social media. And
they will continue to en-
sure that North Port will
continue to be a viable
place where business can
thrive.
"As the community
grows, so does the busi-
ness community's needs
and interests," Gunnin
said, "The word is out
about us. People are
buying into the Chamber
and all the activity we're
doing."

Going with a tour
guide, like Mark, allows
guests a chance to fossil
hunt without the hassle
of tools and permits.
Mark provides all of
that.
If you plan to go on
your own, however, be
sure to obtain a fossil
permit. You don't need
a permit for shark teeth,
but you may come
across something else
that requires a permit.
"Anyone can hunt
fossil shark teeth in
river beds without a
permit," verified Dr.
Richard C. Hulbert Jr.,
vertebrate paleontology
collections manager for
the Florida Museum of
Natural History at the
University of Florida.
"This is also true for
fossils of invertebrate
animals (such as shells


of clams or snails) and
plants. But if one is fol-
lowing the law, then if
they find a fossil tooth
of a horse or mastodon,
or any other vertebrate
fossil, and do not have
a permit, then you are
supposed to put it back.
To obtain a permit
(only $5), go to http://
www.flmnh.ufl.edu/

Judge: No welfare drug tests


By MIKE SCHNEIDER
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
ORLANDO -A federal
judge on Tuesday struck
down a Florida law requiring
applicants for welfare benefits
to undergo mandatory drug
testing, ruling it was uncon-
stitutional and shouldn't be
enforced.


U.S. District Judge Mary
Scriven's 30-page order made
permanent an earlier, tem-
porary ban on the law by the
judge.
Gov. Rick Scott had
backed the drug testing of
prospective welfare recipi-
ents, arguing it helped protect
taxpayers and families. He
said in a statement Tuesday


that his administration would
appeal the decision to the
U.S. Court of Appeals.
"Any illegal drug use in a
family is harmful and even
abusive to a child," Scott
said. "We should have a zero
tolerance policy for illegal
drug use in families, especial-
ly those families who struggle
to make ends meet and need


welfare assistance to provide
for their children."
Opponents of the law had
argued it was an unconsti-
tutional search and seizure.
The judge agreed, writing that
there was no pervasive drug
problem among applicants
for the welfare program

Crowds jam Times Square in annual rite of passage

Obama's health care law at a crossroads


By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
WASHINGTON -All
things good, bad and un-
predictable converge with
the new year for President
Barack Obama's health care
overhaul as the law's major
benefits take effect, along
with an unpopular insurance
mandate and a risk of more
nerve-wracking disruptions
to coverage.


The changes bring big
improvements for some,
including Howard Kraft of
Lincolnton, N.C. A painful
spinal problem left him
unable to work as a hotel
bellman. But he's got cover-
age because federal law now
forbids insurers from turning
away people with health
problems.
"I am not one of these
people getting a policy
because I'm being made to,"


Kraft said. "I need one to stay
alive."
What's good for millions
like Kraft is secured through
what others see as an impo-
sition: requiring virtually ev-
ery American to get covered,
either through an employer,
a government program, or by
buying a plan directly.
But the health care
headlines early this year
could come from continued
unpredictable consequences


of the insurance programs
messy rollout.
The consumer-facing side
of the healthcare.gov website
appears to be largely fixed
- with 2.1 million enrolled
through federal and state
websites. But on the back
end, insurers say they are
still receiving thousands of
erroneous sign-ups from the
government.

OAKLAND, Calif (AP)
- A California hospital
is unwilling to allow an
outside doctor to fit a
13-year-old declared
brain dead after tonsil
surgery with the breath-
ing and feeding tubes
that would allow her to
be safely transferred to
another facility, its lawyer
said Tuesday.
Children's Hospital
Oakland will not permit
the procedures to be
performed on its premis-
es because Jahi McMath
is legally dead in the
view of doctors who have
examined her, lawyer
Douglas Straus wrote in a
letter to the girl's family.
"Performing medical
procedures on the body
of a deceased human
being is simply not some-
thing Children's Hospital
can do or ask its staff to
assist in doing," he said.
The refusal reversed
the position articulated
on Monday by a hospital
spokesman. He said the
hospital would allow a
doctor retained by the
family to insert a feeding
tube and to replace the
oral ventilator keeping
Jahi's heart beating with a
tracheal tube surgical
procedures that would
stabilize Jahi if she is
moved to a facility willing
to keep caring for her.
Christopher Dolan, the


lawyer for Jahi's mother,
NailahWinkfield, said
he received the news as
he tried to confirm the
conditions under which
the hospital would have
allowed a visiting doctor
and nail down the long-
term care facility that
might accept the girl as a
patient. Dolan said he has
been talking with the New
Beginnings Community
Center in Medford, N.Y.,
an outpatient client for
people with traumatic
brain injuries, and with
an unnamed facility in
Arizona.
The New York facility
didn't immediately return
calls seeking comment.
"They're speaking out
of both sides of their
mouths. They say one
thing and we go down
that road, and then they
say something else,"
Dolan said of hospital
officials. "The hospital
said, 'Bring us a doctor'
and we said, 'Tell us the
conditions' and now,
they've wasted a half a
day of our time. We don't
have much time."
Meanwhile, a state
appeals court on Tuesday
refused to order the hos-
pital to insert the tubes,
saying the issue has to
go first to the lower court
judge who has ordered
the hospital to keep
the girl on a ventilator

until Jan. 7 pending the
family's appeal. The 1st
District Court of Appeal
said it would consider
the issue at a later date, if
necessary.
Straus, the hospital's
lawyer, reiterated in his
letter that the hospital
would release the girl's
body as soon as her
family provided a detailed
plan outlining how the
move would be accom-
plished and written


permission from the cor-
oner. But he said neither
has been submitted.
"No facility has stated,
unconditionally or other-
wise, that it is prepared to
immediately accept Jahi's
body," he wrote.
Jahi underwent a
tonsillectomy and related
procedures at Children's
Hospital on Dec. 9 to treat
sleep apnea. Her family
said she went into cardiac
arrest after she started
coughing up blood in the
recovery room. She was
declared brain dead three
days later. The hospital
then moved to take her
off the machines that are
keeping her heart and
lungs going a few days
before Christmas.
Doctors at Children's
Hospital and an indepen-
dent pediatric neurologist
from Stanford University
have concluded Jahi is
brain dead.
Her family, citing
religious beliefs and
the hope that she will
pull through, wants
to continue life sup-
port. Alameda County
Superior Court Judge
Evelio Grillo initially
ruled that doctors could
remove her from the ven-
tilator at 5 p.m. Monday,
but two hours before the
deadline gave the family
another week to find a
place to move her.

US pump prices
poised to decline
in 2014, AAA says

(Bloomberg News) -
Drivers in the U.S. will
probably pay an average
of 5 cents a gallon less
in 2014 than this year as
refineries produce more
fuel, AAA said.
The price of regular
gasoline averaged $3.49 a
gallon this year, making
2013 the least expensive
year to fill up since 2010,
according to Heathrow,
Fla.-based AAA, the
nation's largest motoring
club. Prices in 2012
averaged a record $3.60 a
gallon and $3.51 in 2011.
U.S. gasoline produc-
tion jumped 4.3 percent
to 9.72 million barrels a
day in the week ended
Dec. 20, the most in
data going back to 1982,
the Energy Information
Administration reported
on Friday. Refiners have
ramped up operations to
benefit from a flood of
less-expensive domestic
crude oil as U.S. output
reached the highest level
in 25 years.

$578 million sales

SAN FRANCISCO
(Bloomberg) -Toni Fox
plans to open the doors
of her Denver marijuana
shop at 8 a.m. Wednesday
to a line of customers
including some who
camped overnight to be
the first in the United
States to legally buy pot
for recreational use.
Fox has arranged for
canopy tents, heaters
and a food truck to offer
donuts and pastries to
patrons waiting for the
state-appointed hour.
She expects sales at her
3D Cannabis Center,
operating since 2010 as a
medical-marijuana dis-
pensary near the Denver
Coliseum, to surge to at
least $250,000 a month
from $30,000, she said.
Fox's shop is among
14 in Denver that got
state and local licenses
in time to sell marijuana
to anyone 21 or older
starting Jan. 1, just over a
year after Colorado and
Washington voters made
their states the first to
legalize recreational use.

revenue.

Pension holders
push machinists
to drop pensions
SEATTLE (AP)-
Machinists in Puget
Sound are under pres-
sure to accept a Boeing
contract offer that moves
them away from pension
plans, and much of that
pressure is coming from
local officials who have
that type of retirement
plan.
On Monday, several
political leaders gathered
in Everett, Wash., to talk
about the importance of
machinists accepting a
new contract this week.
Of the six local leaders
who called on the union
members to accept the
deal, one is already draw-
ing pension payments
while five others are
expected to do so upon
retirement.
Local union leaders are
recommending a no vote
on the contract because
they feel it has too many
concessions, and a par-
ticular sticking point has
been Boeing's insistence
that workers move from a
traditional pension plan
to a defined-contribution
retirement savings plan.

Home prices in
20 cities climb by
most in 7 years
WASHINGTON
(Bloomberg) Home
prices in 20 cities rose in
October from a year ago
by the most in more than
seven years, signaling the
real-estate rebound will
keep bolstering house-
hold wealth in 2014.
The S&P/Case-Shiller
index of property prices
in 20 cities climbed
13.6 percent from
October 2012, the biggest
12-month gain since
February 2006, after a
13.3 percent increase
in the year ended in
September, a report
from the group showed
Tuesday in New York. The
median projection of 22
economists surveyed by
Bloomberg called for a
13.5 percent advance.
A dwindling inventory
of foreclosed properties
has helped restrict the
supply of homes for sale,
pushing up prices even as
higher mortgage rate cool
demand. The real-estate
market will probably get
its next boost from gains
in employment that are
lifting consumer confi-
dence in the economic
expansion.

Consumer
confidence
increases more
than forecast
WASHINGTON
(Bloomberg) U.S. con-
sumer confidence climbed
more than projected in
December as Americans'
views of current economic
conditions jumped to the
highest level since April

Vitamin E found to slow mild Alzheimer's decline


NEWYORK (Bloomberg)
-Vitamin E can help slow
the effects of mild to mod-
erate forms of Alzheimer's
disease, a finding doctors
should consider for treating
patients, researchers said.
Patients given high doses
of vitamin E for about two
years delayed progression
of the degenerative brain
disease by about 6.2
months, compared with
those given a placebo,
according to a study
published Tuesday in the
Journal of the American
Medical Association.
Doctors may want to dis-
cuss vitamin E as an option
in early-stage Alzheimer's
treatments, the researchers
said.
Vitamin E acts like an
antioxidant, which may


prevent or delay cell dam-
age, and boost the immune
system. The new study
builds on findings that
showed vitamin E seemed
to slow disease progression
in patients with moderately
severe Alzheimer's and is
the first to show it may help
stall functional decline in
those with milder forms,
said Maurice Dysken, the
lead author.
"A delay in six months
over two years, that's
very meaningful to some
patients and caregivers,"
Dysken, a professor of
psychiatry at the University
of Minnesota, said in a Dec.
27 telephone interview.
Dysken, who is a former
director of the Geriatric
Research, Education and
Clinical Center at the


Minneapolis VA Health
Care System, added that
his study "does not address
whether vitamin E will
prevent Alzheimer's disease
in people who don't have
the diagnosis."
The study looked at 613
veterans who were given
vitamin E, a combination
of vitamin E and Forest
Laboratories' Namenda
for moderate to severe
Alzheimer's, Namenda
alone or placebo. The
vitamin E used in the study
was about 20 times greater
than the dosage usually
found in a multivitamin.
All patients in the trial
were on some type of
Alzheimer's medication,
such as Eisai's Aricept
or Johnson & Johnson's
Razadyne. The main


outcome was how well
patients could perform
activities of daily living.
They found that
vitamin E slowed the
worsening of the disease
by 19 percent a year
compared with placebo.
The research also showed
those who took care of
patients taking vitamin E
were able to spend less
time caregiving com-
pared with those taking
Namenda alone.
More than 5 million
Americans have
Alzheimer's disease, a
number projected to triple
by 2050, according to the
Alzheimer's Association.
Vitamin E is naturally
found in a variety of foods
including wheat germ oil,
sunflower seeds, spinach


and broccoli. Though some
research has linked vitamin
E with an increased risk of
death, cancer and stroke,
no safety issues were seen
in the study published on
Tuesday.
Denis Evans, a professor
in the Department of
Internal Medicine at Rush
University Medical Center
in Chicago, who wrote an
accompanying editorial,
said the results of the study
are "modest" like many
trials looking at Alzheimer's
and more research in
preventing the disease is
needed.
The finding "probably
represents something
roughly like the ceiling of
our current ability to study
the disease," he said in a
telephone interview.

Heat star LeBron James

Timberlake/Jay Z concert.
It was, once again, a
weird year in Florida.
"The rules are different
here and people come
down here thinking they
can do anything," said
Craig Pittman, a Tampa
Bay Times reporter who
tweets about odd Florida
news and blogged about
the state's penchant for
oddness for Slate.com.
When you mix millions
of tourists, transplanted
residents from around
the world, a culture that's


often based on greed
and strange wildlife,
bizarre things are going
to happen, huPittman said.
People come here to party,
people come here to hide
and people come to make
a quick buck.
"Why would you want
to live someplace boring
like Nebraska compared
to here, where every
day when you open the
paper you're going to see
something astonishing?"
Pittman said. "Weird stuff
happens in other places,
but not nearly as much
and not nearly as often."
And Floridians love
guns. Sometimes a little
too much. At least six peo-
ple were struck by bullets
falling from the sky during
celebratory gunfire for


NewYear's Eve, the Miami
Heat's championship and
the Fourth of July.
A Hillsborough County
deputy left a loaded pistol
inside a bathroom stall at
a movie theater, where a
9-year-old boy found it. A
Walt DisneyWorld visitor
on a ride with her grand-
son found a loaded gun.
Even when Floridians
try to use guns for good,
they can get in trouble, like
a shopper at an Orange

four shots at the suspect's
car. Then there was the

A Broward County
man was charged with
pistol-whipping a Dunkin'
Donuts employee for
getting his coffee order
wrong. A bullet fired at a

clerk was stopped by a
cellphone in his pocket.
Cellphones weren't so
lucky for two criminals.
A man was charged with
murder in Broward County
after he pocket-dialed 911
and an operator heard him
planning the crime, and
an Orange City tow truck
driver also pocket-dialed
911 and was overheard
talking about drugs. He
was tracked down and
arrested.
Then there were simply
odd calls to 911, like the


man arrested in Pinellas
County that drunk-dialed
911 complaining his drug
dealer was mad at him. A
St. Petersburg man was
arrested after authorities
said he dialed 911 about 80
times and asked for Kool-
Aid, burgers and weed to
be delivered.
Drivers in Miami called
911 after a truck driver
stopped to pick up the
dead body that fell out
of the passenger door.
Driving in Miami may
be a little less weird now
that a Miami-Dade officer
is behind bars. He was
pulling over female drivers
and having suggestive
conversations, asking one
woman if he could see

snake apparently living
under the cushions.
Holly Wright tells

Wright says she isn't

She says she thought
the couch looked OK

a sign indicating that it
was free for the taking.
She says she took
off the cushions and
cleaned it, but didn't

Mayor: ND town dodged a bullet in crude explosion


CASSELTON, N.D. (AP)
-A southeastern North
Dakota town narrowly
escaped tragedy when a
train carrying crude oil
derailed and exploded
nearby, the mayor said
Tuesday, calling for
changes in how the fuel
is transported across the
U.S.
No one was hurt in
Monday's derailment of
the mile-long train that
sent a great fireball and
plumes of black smoke


skyward about a mile
from the small town of
Casselton. The fire had
been so intense as dark-
ness fell that investigators
couldn't get close enough
to count the number
of burning cars. The
National Transportation
Safety Board launched an
investigation.
Most residents heeded
a recommendation to
evacuate their homes
as strong winds blew
potentially hazardous,


acrid smoke toward the
town overnight, Mayor
Ed McConnell said early
Tuesday. Black soot coated
parts of Casselton.
"I drove in this morning
and looked like most
people had left. There
weren't a lot of lights on,"
McConnell said.
The North Dakota
Department of Health
warned that exposure
to burning crude could
cause shortness of breath,
coughing and itching and


watery eyes. It had said
those in the vicinity with
respiratory conditions
such as asthma, bronchi-
tis or emphysema should
minimize outdoor activity.
As the wrecked tankers
continued to smolder
Tuesday, Cass County
Sheriff's Sgt. Tara Morris
said a contractor hired by
the railroad was testing
air quality. Readings
indicated improvements
but authorities aren't
yet prepared to "give the


all-clear," Morris said.
State health officials
said they planned to meet
with the railroad's con-
tractor to double-check
their data, but had no
reason to doubt it.
Residents said the blasts
endured for hours after
the derailment, shaking
their homes and busi-
nesses. Official estimates
of the extent of the blaze
varied. BNSF Railway Co.
said it believed about 20
cars caught fire after its


oil train left the tracks
about 2:10 p.m. Monday.
The sheriff's office said
Monday it thought 10 cars
were on fire. Officials said
the cars would be allowed
to burn out.
NTSB officials on the
scene said an investiga-
tion would examine the
train recorder, the signal
system, the condition
of the train operators,
train and tracks, as well
as the response to the
derailment.

20-year-oldYulia Kuzmina,
a student. "We get a feeling
that a war has started."
That is a worry that
extends far beyond
Volgograd.
Although there has been
no claim of responsibility
for the bombing of the
city's main railway station
and a trolleybus, suspicion
falls strongly on Islamist
insurgents, whose leader
ordered his adherents this
summer to do all they
could to derail the Winter
Olympics, which start
Feb. 7 in the Russian resort
city of Sochi.
Games organizers have
introduced some of the
most extensive identity
checks and security
measures ever seen at an

Japanese women find few jobs


TOKYO (AP)-
Japanese Prime Minister
Shinzo Abe wants women
like Tomo Tamai to go
back to work.
Tamai is eager to do so,
nearly two years after her
first child was born, but
so far the 35-year-old for-
mer national government
employee has only been
able to find an internship.
Abe, who took office a
year ago, has made the
advancement of women a


pillar of his economic re-
vival policies in the most
aggressive and ambitious
initiative to back the rise
of Japanese women in
years. Tamai's struggles
show why doubts remain
about whether it's enough
to overcome entrenched
discrimination in the
workplace.
"It is a bunch of
flag-waving," said Tamai,
who holds a doctorate
in literature from Nihon

critics and women work-
ers say they tend to be
confined to second-class
status, not taken serious-
ly for what is considered
"a man's job."
They are underrepre-
sented in government
as well, comprising
11 percent of the more

parliament, 18 percent of
the upper house, and just
2.5 percent of managerial
positions among public

Japan has a less fluid
workforce than many
Western countries,
because employees tend
to stay loyal to one com-
pany for life. That puts
women at a disadvantage
because they tend to take
time off to have children
and are then consigned
to lower-rung jobs, an-
alysts say. Sixty percent
of working women quit

Baby step to ban outdoor smoking: playgrounds


TALLAHASSEE (Cox
Newspapers) -A bill
that would have allowed
cities to ban smoking on
beaches and other public
outdoor areas crashed
and burned in the
Florida Legislature last
spring, but anti-tobacco
advocates are reloading
with a more modest
plan aimed at keeping
cigarettes and cigars off
playgrounds.
Sen. Rob Bradley,
R-Fleming Island,
managed to get the
beach-smoking proposal
through a few Senate
committees, but on
the House side, Delray
Beach Republican Rep.


Bill Hager's version never
drew a hearing. Cigar
interests, restaurants and
lawmakers concerned
about the reach of gov-
ernment quickly snuffed
out the idea.
"We're back with a
compromise piece of leg-
islation," Bradley said of
the new proposal to ban
smoking on playgrounds.
"We've tried to listen to
everybody's concerns. If
people thought the other
approach was too broad,
maybe this won't be a
problem."
The legislation (SB
342, HB 309) would
let local governments
put up "No Smoking"


signs at playgrounds
and banish smoking
at those locations. The
approach is supported
by local governments,
the American Lung
Association, American
Heart Association
and cancer-fighting
organizations.
Florida's Clean Indoor
Air Act, enacted in 1985,
has prohibited com-
munities from enacting
tougher local standards
than what the state law
set. But like the name
implies, it's aimed chiefly
at barring smoking
indoors, at workplaces,
restaurants and other
public buildings.


Bradley and Hager's
proposal last year would
have let local govern-
ments ban smoking
on public property,
including such outdoor
locations as beaches,
parks, playgrounds and
recreational areas.
The House sponsor of
the scaled-down play-
ground restriction said
it's time Florida lawmak-
ers take a closer look at
whether the statewide
standard meets what she
said is a changing view
on smoking.
"When the statewide
preemption first went in,
smoking was much more
tolerated and people


didn't have the same
understanding of the
dangers of second-hand
smoke," said Rep. Katie
Edwards, D-Plantation.
"Public perception,
and acceptance, has
changed since then," she
said.
According to the
Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention,
Florida is among 12
states that have a state-
wide standard banning
tougher local regulations,
a number that is down
from 19 states in 2004.
"Getting rid of pre-
emption is a goal, but
it looks like we have to
start with small steps,


like banning smoking
on playgrounds," said
Dr. Barry Hummel, a
Broward County pediatri-
cian and spokesman for
the Tobacco Prevention
Network of Florida.
"I've got to think,
'Who could argue with
prohibiting smoking on
playgrounds?'" he added.
House Speaker Will
Weatherford, R-Wesley
Chapel, whose chamber
tabled the beach ban,
didn't endorse the latest
idea, but said: "My job is
not to dictate what bills
get heard. I'm going to let
the process move along,
and we'll see what bills
advance."

Search continues
for missing
boaters
TARPON SPRINGS
(AP) A search for two
missing boaters contin-
ues on Lake Tarpon.
The men didn't return
home from a Saturday
afternoon fishing trip on
the lake and family mem-
bers alerted the Pinellas
County Sheriff's Office.
A search began Sunday
afternoon and continued
Monday and Tuesday.
Deputies say 43-year-
old Willie Ragins and
64-year-old Willie
Hightower left in a boat
on Saturday afternoon.
Ragins' family members
heard from him Saturday
night when he told them
during a phone call he'd
be home shortly.
Authorities found two
coolers, a chair and a life
jacket in the water. But
there hasn't been a sign of
the boat.
Rare migrating
whooping cranes
reach NW Florida

TALLAHASSEE (AP) -
Eight endangered whoop-
ing cranes being taught to
migrate by humans flying
tiny airplanes have made
it to Florida.
Federal wildlife officials
say the cranes that left
Wisconsin in October
made it to northwest
Florida on Tuesday.
The birds' stop in Leon
County is their last
layover before they finish
their journey at St. Marks
National Wildlife Refuge.
Refuge manager Terry
Peacock says the cranes
likely will fly over the city
of St. Marks on their way
to their new winter home
Wednesday morning.
The entire journey covers
roughly 1,100 miles
through seven states to
Florida's Gulf Coast.
It's the 13th migration
led by ultralight aircraft
flown by an organiza-
tion called Operation
Migration. Only a few
hundred whooping
cranes remain in the wild.
Jannus plane
reproduction
grounded
ST. PETERSBURG (AP)
- A reproduction of the
airplane that became the
first commercial airliner
will not be ready for its
planned flight across
Tampa Bay on New Year's
Day.
The Tampa Tribune
reports the Benoist 2014
reproduction was to fol-
low the same flight path
taken by Tony Jannus on
Jan. 1, 1914, to mark the
centennial of the event.
Creator Kermit Weeks
was able to power
the engine and taxi
the airboat on water
during his test flight
Saturday, but could not
get the craft airborne
despite making several
adjustments.
Instead, a similar air-
boat replica, the Hoffman
X-4 "Mullet Skiff," will fly
in its place.


Panhandle men
charged with
stealing puppies
PENSACOLA (AP)
- Authorities in the
Panhandle say they have
arrested two 19-year-old
men in connection with
an armed robbery that
included stealing puppies
at gunpoint.
The Pensacola News
Journal reported on
Monday that the men
were arrested by the
Escambia County Sheriff's


Office following a Sunday
morning home invasion
and robbery.
According to the sher-
iff's office, the two men
are suspected of wearing
masks and holding guns
as they forced their way
into a home and demand-
ed residents give them
various electronics, cash
and two pit bull puppies.
No one was injured in
the robbery.
Sheriff's deputies later
stopped the car the men
were driving and found


masks and the puppies in
the back seat.
The men have been
charged with home
invasion and wearing
masks in the commission
of a crime.
Bear bit woman in
face during attack
ORLANDO (AP)- A
Florida woman did every-
thing she should do when
confronted by a bear but
the animal still attacked
her, biting her face.


Wildlife officials
released a report Tuesday
about the confrontation
earlier this month be-
tween the bear and Susan
Chalfant. The report says
the bear cut off Chalfant's
escape route, knocked
her down and also swiped
at one of the two dogs she
was walking.
The report says
Chalfant did everything
humans are advised to do
when confronting a bear.
She stood her ground and
raised her arms to look


bigger before backing up.
Once attacked, she
fought back, trying to hit
and gouge the bear's eyes.
Two other bears were
euthanized on suspicions
that they may have been
responsible.
The responsible bear
was later captured with
two cubs.

S&P 500 has best year since 1997


NEWYORK (AP)-
The stock market closed
out a record year with
more all-time highs on
Tuesday, giving U.S.
indexes their biggest
annual gains in almost
two decades.
The Standard & Poor's
500 index notched its
best year since 1997; The
Dow Jones industrial
average rose the most
since 1995.
While trading was light
on the last day of the year,
investors were able to
rally behind a report that
showed U.S. consumer
confidence improved
significantly in December.
The early signs for the
stock market in 2014 are


also encouraging.
"I expect a lot of good
things for the new year,"
Karyn Cavanaugh,
market strategist with
ING U.S. Investment
Management, said. "The
economy is getting better
and corporate earnings
are improving. That's
going to drive the market
higher next year as well."
On Tuesday the
Standard & Poor's 500
rose 7.29 points, or
0.4 percent, to 1,848.36.
The index ended 2013
up 29.6 percent. With
dividends included, the
total return was
31.9 percent.
The Dow Jones industrial
average rose 72.37 points,


or 0.4 percent, to 16,576.66.
The blue chips ended the
year up 26.5 percent.
Lastly, the Nasdaq
composite rose 22.39
points, or 0.5 percent,
to close out 2013 at
4,176.59. The Nasdaq
did far better than the
Dow and S&P, rising
38.3 percent for the year.
While stocks clawed
higher for most of 2013,
the rally accelerated into
the end of the year. The
Federal Reserve's an-
nouncement on Dec. 18
that it would start paring
back, or "tapering,"
its economic stimulus
pushed stocks further
into record territory.
"Since the Fed


announced it was
tapering its stimulus
program two weeks
ago, investors that were
underinvested in stocks
have pulled out of gold
and bonds and moved
it into stocks," said J.J.
Kinahan, chief strategist
with TD Ameritrade. "It's
been a quiet rally."
All 10 sectors of the
S&P 500 ended the year
higher, but the year's big-
gest gainers were compa-
nies most exposed to the
U.S. economic recovery.
Consumer discretionary
stocks in the S&P 500
rose 40 percent this
year. Close behind were
industrial stocks with a
gain of 37 percent.


How to play with those new tech toys


anta is back at the
North Pole. Many
of us are looking at
new toys with names like
iPad, Kindles, tablets or
that smartphone for us
not so smart humans.
Considering how to
use them can be daunt-
ing and confusing. Grab
a cup of Java, the tablet
or smartphone, sit in a
comfy chair, and let's
make some sense out of
these things. Put every-
thing into perspective -
a tablet or smartphone is
really nothing more than
a small computer, with
the smartphone able to
make phone calls.
There are differences
between our beloved
binary buddy and these
new devices. The biggest
is the lack of a DVD
drive, which is rapidly
becoming obsolete. Also,
the operating systems
are primarily from three
different companies -
Google (Android), Apple,
and Microsoft. Some
have USB ports so our


flash drives can still be
used, but these devices
are really designed to
be connected to the
Internet via a wireless or
cell-based connection
virtually all the time.
Start up the new
device. There are a few
pages of registration and
maybe some updates. If
it's an Apple product, it
will ask us to log in to the
device with our Apple ID.
Don't have one? It will
walk us through setting
one up. Make sure to
have a credit card handy
as Apple ties that card
to the Apple ID so in the
future if we buy a song,
movie or app, it can be
charged directly.


The Android and
Microsoft devices do
not at this date require
a credit card; however,
they too will allow us to
purchase products and
store a card number if we
wish.
Let's connect to the
Internet. On the device
is an icon labeled
Settings. Touch the icon
to open the Settings
page. Usually at the top,
but we can scroll down
using our finger until
we see WiFi. Make sure
it is turned on, then
tap the word WiFi. A
screen will open and
shortly a list of all the
wireless networks the
device can see will be
displayed. Tap the one
that corresponds to the
network we wish to join.
It's usually our home
network, but if visiting
a coffee shop or hotel,
choose that one. Enter
the wireless password if
required for the network
and tap connect or join
network. In a moment,


we are connected to the
Internet.
Next, set up our email.
Again go to Settings
and tap Accounts and
then Add Account. If
we are using one of
the more widely used
email providers such as
Gmail, Outlook.corn or
Yahoo, it will ask us to
enter our email address,
password and a friendly
name for the email
such as "my mail" and
automatically configure
all the settings for us. If
we use a lesser known
email provider, we may
need to enter the server
names for the incoming
(POP) and outgoing
(SMTP) servers. Our
mail begins flowing to
the device.

Humility, gratitude



and contentment


ear Dave: Do you
have any advice
for teaching re-
sponsibility and generos-
ity to adult children and
grandkids when it comes
to money? Justin
Dear Justin: I think
there are three key
factors when it comes
to teaching children
of any age about these
concepts humility,
gratitude and content-
ment. In my mind,
humility is where
gratitude comes from,
and gratitude leads to
contentment.
I'm generous to my
adult children, but they
have no sense of enti-
tlement. That's due to
their personal humility.
They don't feel that I
owe them anything, and
they already know that
anyone who cops an
entitlement attitude gets
cut off. You're no longer
qualified for my gener-
osity when you lose your
gratitude.
You've got to spend
time talking to kids
about these things.
Otherwise, you run the
risk of them counting
on the income. Here's an
example. We coach some
family businesses at my
company, and the best
family businesses are the
ones that teach non-em-
ployee family members
who receive money from
the business divi-
dends from the profits
- never to live on those
dividends. I've seen lots
of cases where someone
will start living on the
business they don't work
in, and they immediately
start feeling entitled to
the money.
The same principle
applies in your situation.
If someone starts saying,
"Well, since mom and


Nave
1Ran i.ey


dad are paying for our
day care, we can use
that money we would
have spent to buy
a car." That means
they've started counting
on mom and dad's
generosity to live, and
that's a form of entitle-
ment mentality.
None of our kids receive
any kind of financial help
from us at all, unless
they're already carrying
their weight in their own
lives. That's not being
cold. It's teaching respon-
sibility and self-reliance.
Now it would be different
if one of them developed
a serious medical issue
or something like that.
But the whole idea that
mommy and daddy have
lots of money, and I can
just get some from them?
That doesn't fly in our
family.
You have to teach
them character and
giving in order for them
to be valid recipients.
Plus, it's all about the
kids' attitude. But you've
got to talk about it often
and communicate the
value system out loud.
The gifting and generos-
ity are contingent upon
the humility that leads
to gratitude that leads to
contentment. Dave

At 20 years, NAFTA didn't close Mexico wage gap


MEXICO CITY (AP)
- Looking around
a Mexico dotted by
Starbucks, Walmart and
Krispy Kreme outlets, it's
hard to remember the
country before the North
American Free Trade
Agreement, which has
dramatically expanded
consumer choice and
trade since it took effect
20 years ago on Jan. 1.
While it changed the
country in some funda-
mental ways, the treaty
never met many of its
sweeping promises to
close Mexico's wage gap
with the United States,
boost job growth, fight
poverty and protect the
environment. Mexico's
weak unions and com-
petition from Asia and
Central America kept
wages down; the tight-
ening of security along


the U.S. border closed
off Mexico's immigration
"escape valve," and
environmental provisions
in the agreement proved
less powerful than those
protecting investors.
Mexico took advan-
tage of the accord with
the United States and
Canada in some areas.
The auto, electronics and
agriculture sectors grew,
and foreign banks moved
in, increasing access to
credit, but a majority
of Mexicans saw little
benefit in income. While
there is undoubtedly a
larger middle class today,
Mexico is the only major
Latin American country
where poverty also has
grown in recent years.
According the
Economic Commission
for Latin America,
poverty fell from


48.4 percent in 1990 to
27.9 percent in 2013 for
all of Latin America. In
Mexico, where it stood at
52.4 percent in 1994, the
poverty rate dropped to
as low as 42.7 percent in
2006; but by 2012, it had
risen again to
51.3 percent.
'About 30 or 40 percent
of what they promised
(in the trade pact) never
came through," said
Rodolfo Hurtado Corona,
65, a chauffeur waiting
for his boss on a Mexico
City street. Still, motion-
ing to the gleaming sport
utility vehicle he drives
for his boss, he noted
that "before, there were
only a couple of brands,
now you can choose
among many."
Economist Alfredo
Coutino, director for
Latin America at Moody's


Analytics, says "the ben-
efits arrived, but perhaps
not of the magnitude
that had been hoped
for." He notes that "if this
agreement had not been
signed, Mexico would
have been in a much
worse situation than it
has been over the last
20 years."
Before NAFTA, Mexico
was a closed, state-dom-
inated economy reeling
from debt and the
underlying problems of
Mexican farms low
productivity on small
plots. That had set up a
perfect storm of mass
unemployment.
The trade accord,
globalization and foreign
investment did help
create jobs, albeit low-
paid ones.
At supermarkets,
shoppers are now


familiar with everything
from cranberries to chai
and lemons (as opposed
to the Mexican lime) that
few had tasted before
the treaty tore down
trade barriers and tariffs
between Mexico, Canada
and the United States.
Consumer goods
and clothing that were
trendy among Mexico's
wealthy are now avail-
able to everyone, with
more products and
choice, especially among
electronics, appliances
and cars.
Coutino recalls that
"before, in Mexico, it was
a question of social status
to have a pair of import-
ed sneakers, they were
very expensive ... now the
majority of Mexicans can
have these things that
were once considered
luxuries."


KABUL, Afghanistan
(Washington Post) -The
first day of January isn't cel-
ebrated as the beginning
of the year in Afghanistan,
but since the American
invasion, it's become a new
kind of holiday a de fac-
to birthday for thousands


of Afghans who don't know
when they were bom.
During protracted wars
in the 1980s and '90s, the
government didn't have a
system in place to register
births. Because identifi-
cation cards and driver's
licenses weren't standard in


this impoverished nation,
families saw no reason
to record the exact dates.
Government paperwork
asked only for an approx-
imate birthday on the
Islamic calendar.

arrived, they brought
with them a flurry of job
opportunities, visa applica-
tions and websites that all
required a specific birthday
on the Roman calendar.
"Those of us who don't
know when we were born
selected January first," said
a U.S. Army interpreter
named Tariq, who first
wrote the date on his
job application with the
military and would repeat
it when he applied for a
visa, and whenever anyone
asked. "It was very easy to
remember."
Like many Afghans,
Tariq, who requested
that his last name not
be used to avoid Taliban
threats, has only a vague
sense of his birthday,
which coincided with the
country's collapse into
civil war in the early '90s.
As Internet access became
more widespread, with 3G
networks advertised in the
country's major cities, the
question of birthdays arose
with even greater frequen-
cy. Urban Afghans were
quick to create accounts
on Facebook, Twitter and
Gmail, all of which ask for
the registrant's birth date.
"I have been using the
first of January for every
online registration and
social network site," said


Nazer Hussain, 23, a recent
university graduate who
rattled off a list of websites
he signed up for using his
fake birthday. "In the past,
people weren't well-ed-
ucated enough to keep
record of birthdays."
In the digital age, the
collective birthday has
become something of an
inside joke here, as young
Afghans send each other
messages to celebrate.
"Happy birthday to 30
friends... whose birthdays
are tomorrow on the
first of January," BaratAli
Batoor, an Afghan refugee
in Australia, wrote on
Facebook.
"In two days, it's
every Afghan's birthday"
Mohammad Hassanzai, an
Afghan living in London,
tweeted on Dec. 30.
Some worry that the lack
of official birth registration
- a problem that persists
today, particularly in
rural parts of the country
- could have serious
implications.
"Birth registration is
instrumental in safeguard-
ing other human rights
because it provides the
official 'proof' of a child's
existence," said a 2007
United Nations report on
the topic, which singled
out Afghanistan.

Police in Mumbai
try to curb New
Year's parties
NEW DELHI
(Washington Post) In
an extraordinary move,
the police in India's finan-
cial capital of Mumbai
sought to shut down the
city's pubs and restau-
rants earlyWednesday in
order to keep women safe
from drunken New Year's
revelers.
The order reflected
the change in attitudes
about assaults on women
in India since the fatal
gang rape of a 23-year-old
female just more than a
year ago.
But the police mandate
sparked outrage among
partygoers and women
who protested that it
was the duty of security
forces to protect citizens
- not confine them. On
Tuesday, responding to
a petition by clubs and
hotels in the city, the
Mumbai high court struck
down the order to close
by 1:30 a.m., and allowed
them to continue their
celebrations until 5 a.m.
"This is like saying
women will be safe only if
everybody stays indoors;
has anything changed at
all in the last year?" asked
Elaisha Asher, 23, a data
analyst in Mumbai, after
the court ruling.

Latvia to become
18th euro member
RIGA, Latvia (Bloomberg)
- Latvia's euro adoption,
dangled as the ultimate
reward while the country
endured the world's
deepest recession, is being
met with resentment.
In the country of
2 million, which will be-
come the 18th member of
the euro areaWednesday,
opponents of the currency
switch outnumber propo-
nents two-to-one as public
expectations for accelerat-
ing inflation mount, opin-
ion polls show. Residents
are also bracing for taking
on new responsibilities in
the currency union.
"I'm convinced" prices
will rise with the euro, said
Andris Liepins, 51, a shop
owner in Riga, the capital.
"It's a fact" that Latvia
will have to help pay for
other countries' debt after
adopting the euro.

Putin triumphs in 2013, yet tough challenges loom


MOSCOW (AP) -
Displaying the killer
instincts of a chess
grandmaster, Vladimir
Putin rang out 2013 with
an exceptional list of
accomplishments.
The Russian president
humiliated the United
States by sheltering NSA
leaker Edward Snowden,
brokered a Syrian chem-
ical weapons deal that
averted a seemingly inev-
itable U.S. military strike
and outmaneuvered
the 28-nation European
Union in the wrestling
match for influence over
Ukraine.
Putin also surprised
both his own people


and the world by
pardoning his old foe,
former oil tycoon Mikhail
Khodorkovsky, and
allowing an amnesty that
got two Pussy Riot punk
band members and over
two dozen Greenpeace
anti-oil drilling activists
out of prison.
"It's Putin's moment.
He should feel quite hap-
py," said Gleb Pavlovsky,
a political strategist and
onetime adviser to the
Kremlin.
But as the 61-year-
old leader prepares for
his pet project the
2014 Winter Olympics
in Sochi to begin in
February, dark clouds are


hovering. Two terrorist
attacks in the southern
city of Volgograd this
week raised the specter
of continuing violence in
the run-up to the games.
In addition,
the Sochi
Olympics
are still
dogged by
fierce crit-
icism over
the Russian
PUTIN law signed
by Putin
that bans so-called "gay
propaganda" for minors.
And beyond the
Olympics, bigger risks
loom.
Russia's ailing


economy continues to
depend almost entirely
on oil and gas. Even
though energy prices
have remained high, the
country is on the brink
of recession with growth
at just over 1 percent,
not enough for Putin to
meet his generous social
obligations.
Russia's rampant
official corruption and its
politically tainted justice
system have spooked
foreign investors, while
its smoldering ethnic
tensions and widening
gap between rich and
poor are increasing social
instability.

the Russia and Eurasia
program at Chatham
House, said while Putin
has had a "spectacularly
good year," it has masked
the almost "insurmount-
able problems" facing
Russia.
'Absent major league
reform and an entire
removal of the Russian
elite who do not desire
any significant structural
change because it
would be fundamentally
contradictory to their
interest you're just
not going to see a Russia
which moves on," he
said.
But for now, Putin is
basking in the limelight
after a series of political
victories.
"Putin looks like a man
who controls develop-
ments," said Fyodor
Lukyanov, editor of the
Russia in Global Affairs
magazine and head of
the Council for Foreign
and Defense Policies, a
top expert group. "That


makes him different from
many other leaders, who
have to react to some-
body else's actions."
By providing a refuge
to Snowden despite U.S.
demands for his extradi-
tion, Putin dealt a painful
blow to Washington.
"It turned out that
Russia was the only
country capable of resist-
ing the (U.S.) pressure,"
Lukyanov said.
Putin has insisted that
Snowden isn't being
controlled by Russia, but
many observers doubt
that Russian security
agencies would have
missed the chance to
learn what they could
from the American.
Annoyed by years of
Western criticism of
Russia's human rights
record, Putin clearly
relished the chance
to highlight the U.S.
National Security
Agency's questionable
surveillance of citizens
and foreigners alike.


US works on outline


for Israel peace deal


WASHINGTON
(Washington Post) -The
United States will begin
this week to present
potential solutions to dis-
agreements between Israel
and the Palestinians as an
April deadline for a peace
deal approaches, a senior
State Department official
close to negotiations said
Tuesday.
Secretary of State John
Kerry will test U.S. pro-
posals during meetings
with Israeli and Palestinian
leaders, set to begin
Thursday when he returns
to the region. The goal is
an outline to guide the


most intensive and difficult
phase of the direct negotia-
tions Kerry prodded the two
sides to begin last summer.
Kerry set a nine-month
deadline that would
produce a final peace deal
by late April that would
establish an independent
Palestinian state by late
April. The framework agree-
ment at issue now would
commit the two sides to the
parameters of a final deal.
Details would be filled in
over the coming months,
but the outline would be a
milestone that shows the
largely secretive discussions
are worthwhile.

It's time the Bucs hire best coach


By GARY SHELTON
TAMPA BAY TIMES
t is time for the safe
guy. It is time for the
proven guy.
It is time for Lovie, the
guy with the flame in his
stomach.
Over the past few years,
the Bucs have flitted
between this personality
and that, as if the next
coach can have nothing
in common with the guy
who came before him.
For a long time, they
had the quiet guy. Tony
Dungy looked at a
football game the way a
science instructor looked
at a beaker. His eyebrow
would raise now and then
but not a lot more.


INSIDE
Jacksonville says star running
back has "earned the right" to
test free agency market. Page 6

For a while, they
had the intense guy.
Ion Gruden was all fire
and fury in the way he
approached football. His
features would twist, and
his face would redden,
and he would cover 8
miles of sideline in a
single afternoon.
After that, they had the
nice guy. Raheem Morris
was everybody's buddy,
and if a player wanted to
flare up at him, well, what
was the harm? School


was out with Raheem, the
most likeable guy a team
ever quit on.
Then came the hard
guy. Greg Schiano was
Sgt. Hulka from Stripes,
and by golly, everyone
better stand up and
salute. Schiano was a
tough guy. He microman-
aged the Bucs something
awful, and he coached
them the same way.
So what now? Do the
Glazers hire a funny guy?
A smart guy? An angry
guy? A driven guy? A guy
who juggles?
Or, this time, do they
simply hire the best coach
available?
This time, do they hire
Lovie Smith?


This coach search
should not take long. It
shouldn't take weeks of
wandering through the
candidates the way it
did when the Bucs hired
Gruden. It shouldn't take
sacrificing the future by
giving up so many draft
picks to get him.
Nor should this search
be a stroll through
recycled coaches such
as Mike Sherman and
Wade Phillips and others
who made you frown and
shake your head, the way
it was before they hired
Schiano. Due diligence is
one thing, and shuffling
your feet while the best
candidates go elsewhere

RINGING IN THE NEWYEAR
The first day of the year offers its annual college football buffet. If you are rising late, you can spend every waking moment with the TV tuned to a bowl game. Among other
entrees on the menu are an unlikely state team in a BCS game, Michigan State returning to the Rose Bowl, and a rematch of a bowl game from last year.

new deal
By RALPH D. RUSSO
ASSOCIATED PRESS
ANAHEIM, Calif.-
Before top-ranked Florida
State made its way to
southern California for the
BCS championship game
against No. 2 Auburn,
Seminoles coach Jimbo
Fisher had some business
to take care of on campus.
Fisher signed a new
contract Tuesday that runs
through the 2018 season.
The deal seems to signal
an end to any plans Texas
might have had to hire
Fisher to replace Mack
Brown.
"We're blessed that we
got that out of the way so
we can focus on winning
a national championship,"
Fisher said Tuesday during
a news conference at the
ESPNZone in Downtown
Disneyland as he sat next
to the crystal football
coaches' trophy that will
go to the winner Monday
night at the Rose Bowl.
Getting out of
Tallahassee proved a bit
tricky for the Seminoles.
They were delayed about
two hours because they
had to wait for a pilot to

UCF offense looks to


slow down game

Ability to convert on third down
will be key for the underdog Knights


By PAUL TENORIO
ORLANDO SENTINEL
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -With
much attention surrounding
Baylor's top-ranked offense -
and for good reason there
might seem to be pressure on
No. 15 UCF to keep up when
the two teams face off in the
Fiesta Bowl.
The Knights' offense has
a more important task than
going punch-for-punch with


SCOREBOARD

the Bears, however. The key to
the game will be about finding
a way to avoid a track meet
rather than searching for a way
to maintain pace, UCF coach
George O'Leary said.
With sixth-ranked Baylor
(11-1) averaging more than 53
points per game this season,
the Knights (11-1) must be
able to control possession of
the ball and eat away at the
clock. The ability to make first
downs, keep drives alive and

Baylor


keep Baylor off the field will be
a critical to UCF's success in
the Fiesta Bowl.
As a result, there will be
pressure on UCF to establish
the run game and stay in
third-and-manageable down
and distance to keep moving
the chains. It's a formula
that fits in perfectly with the
Knights' philosophy, which

Odd year


awaits for


athletes


and fans

By NANCY ARMOUR
ASSOCIATED PRESS
Cold and snow for the Super
Bowl, balmy temperatures
and palm trees for the Winter
Olympics. A college football
champion that nobody can ques-
tion and a golf major guaranteed
to go two weeks. There's also the
never-ending mess with Alex
Rodriguez, and a World Cup that
may or may not come off as
planned.
The New Year hasn't even
arrived yet, and 2014 is already
shaping up to be one odd year.
While it's impossible to predict
everything that will happen in
the coming months, especially
when it comes to sports raise
your hand if you saw that World
Series title for the Boston Red
Sox coming, or that swift kick to
Alabama's hopes for a three-peat
- one thing is for certain:
It's going to be a year like few
others.

SUPER BOWL FEB. 2
Yes, teams play in the cold
and snow all the time during the
regular season, and some of the
NFL's most memorable games
were played in wintry conditions.
And, yes, there's a chance it could
be in the 40s on game day. But
the NFL is taking a big gamble
by holding the Super Bowl, its
marquee event, at an outdoor
stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.,
in the dead of winter.
While some folks shelling out
big bucks for Super Bowl tickets
are fans of the two teams playing,
most come for the experience -
and that wasn't meant to include
frostbite. There will be plenty of
mumbling and grumbling if the
Big Apple is hit by a blizzard or
cold snap Feb. 2, to say nothing
of the potential embarrassment
of empty seats. Bad weather
wouldn't be any picnic in the days
before, either, wreaking havoc
with the other events that make
the Super Bowl the spectacle that
it is and keeping fans hunkered
down in their hotel rooms.
If they can get to their hotel
rooms, that is.

WINTER OLYMPICS FEB. 7-23
Weather has been a concern
since the Winter Games were
awarded to Sochi, a resort city on
the Black Sea where the average
high in February is nearly 50
degrees and rain is far more likely

Going big outdoors


NHL ups the ante for Winter Classic


ByLARRYLAGE
ASSOCIATED PRESS
ANN ARBOR, Mich.-
As the novelty of playing
hockey outdoors seems to
be wearing off, the NHL is
hoping bigger is better at
the Winter Classic.
The league has been
playing at least one game
outdoors annually since
2008 other than last
season because of the
lockout. The popularity
of the concept is being
tested by putting six
games in the elements
this season.
With a lot more fans
and two Original Six
teams, including one
from Canada for the
first time, the NHL is
confident the 2014 Winter
Classic will be different.


WINTER CLASSIC
WHO: Detroit (18-14-9) vs.
Toronto (20-16-5)
WHEN:Today, 1 p.m.
WHERE: Michigan Stadium, Ann
Arbor, Mich.
TV:NBC

"Those are two distin-
guishing factors," NHL
Deputy Commissioner
Bill Daly said. "It'll be
special."
The league said 105,500
tickets have been sold for
the game today between
the Detroit Red Wings
and Toronto Maple Leafs
at Michigan Stadium.
That almost doubles the
average of 53,045 specta-
tors who watched the first
five Winter Classics.


If every person who
paid for a ticket braves
temperatures in the teens
on a snowy afternoon, a
record will be broken.
In the same football
stadium, known as the
Big House, Michigan
and Michigan State set a
hockey attendance record
of 104,173 in 2010.
"If you haven't been
to a football Saturday
here, then you should put
it on your bucket list,"
Red Wings coach Mike
Babcock said Tuesday
after a brief practice. "It's
the best sporting event.
I've been to the Olympic
Games, the World Series,
the Stanley Cup. This is
probably the best sport-
ing event I've ever been
to, bar none."

Richards, Rangers top Panthers


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SUNRISE -Brad
Richards scored the lone
goal in the shootout, and
the New York Rangers
rallied to beat the Florida
Panthers 2-1 on Tuesday
night.
Richards beat Tim
Thomas with a wrist shot
to the top left corner after
Thomas stopped the first
two New York attempts in
the tiebreaker.
New York defenseman
Dan Girardi scored with
2:10 left in regulation to
send the game to over-
time. Boyes had given the
Panthers a 1-0 lead with a
second-period goal after
a Rangers turnover.
Thomas made 30 saves
through overtime, and
Lundqvist stopped 21.
Florida broke through
in the second on Boyes'
10th of the season.
Girardi retrieved a loose
puck, and his pass
attempt from behind the
net was intercepted by
Aleksander Barkov, who
quickly fed the puck to
Boyes in front. Boyes beat
Lundqvist with a back-
hander between his pads.

Jets 3, Sabres 0: In
Winnipeg, Manitoba, Al Montoya
made 27 saves and led the Jets past

and Anthony Peluso provided all the
offense necessary for Montoya, who
earned his second shutout of the
season. Winnipeg tied a season best
with its third straight win.

Blues 2, Wild 1: In St. Paul,
Minn., Jaden Schwartz scored for the
sixth straight game and St. Louis hung

in its past seven road games. The Blues
are 8-1-2 in their last 11 games overall.

Devils 2, Penguins 1: In
Newark, N.J., Adam Henrique scored
1:38 into the game and Michael
Ryder connected 2:45 into the second,
sparking the Devils past Pittsburgh.

Lemon Bay sets


tourney record


STAFF REPORT
BRADENTON -Sarah
Lutz scored a season-high
21 points to lead four
Lemon Bay High School
players into double figures
during a 79-18 victory
against Shorecrest Prep on
Monday in the Smoothie
King Classic at Bradenton
Christian.
The 79 points were
a tournament record,
according to Manta Rays
coach Mike Young.
"We shot the ball really
well," Young said. "We
pressured the ball and got
a lot of fast breaks early."
Lemon Bay turned
those fast breaks into a
29-point first quarter and
a 56-point first half. Kayla
Reid and Lutz led the early
charge with 10 and eight
points, respectively, in the
first quarter.
Reid finished with a
double-double: 16 points


and 10 rebounds.
"She has a knack for
getting rebounds," Young
said. "She's only 5-foot-7,
but she goes and gets
them. She works hard. She
has been struggling a bit
from the field lately, but
has been working hard on
it and shot the ball well."
Kacyn Shirley narrowly
missed a double-double.
She finished with 11
points and eight assists.
Hayley Smith rounded
out the double-digit
scorers with 13.

than snow. The tempera-
tures should be lower in
the mountains, where the
outdoor events will be
held, and organizers have
guaranteed snow, even if
it's the stuff they've been
squirreling away since
last year, when un-Winter
Olympic-like weather
forced the cancellation of
some test events.
Warm temperatures
and slushy snow might
wind up being the least
of the worries for Russian
president Vladimir Putin
and Sochi organizers,
however. Russia's new an-
ti-gay laws have sparked
outrage from the rest of
the world, as has Putin's
human-rights record. The
International Olympic
Committee has reminded
athletes that protests or
political gestures violate
the Olympic charter, and
Sochi organizers have said
they will set up special
"protest zones." But the
criticism isn't likely to
quiet once the games
begin, not when the whole
world is watching.

BOSTON MARATHON APRIL 21
The field for this year's
race will be 36,000-strong,
the second-largest in
history, as runners honor
not only the victims of last
year's bombings but the
city's resilience.

WORLD CUP JUNE 12-JuLY 13
Six of the 12 stadiums
will not be ready until
January or February,
though organizers insist
that's still more than
enough time to hold test
events. But despite spend-
ing billions to prepare for
the World Cup (and the
2016 Olympics), questions
remain about Brazil's
infrastructure, with many
fearing the airports, roads
and local transportation
systems will not be able to
handle the crush of tour-
ists. All that spending also
has created resentment
among Brazilian citizens,
who disrupted last sum-
mer's Confederations Cup
with violent protests.
On the field, however,
this could be one of
the most entertaining
tournaments yet. Led by
budding star Neymar,
host Brazil has its most
intriguing team since
its last title run in 2002.
Lionel Messi is finally
showing the sublime form
for Argentina that's be-
come his trademark with
Barcelona. The Europeans
are, simply, stacked, with
reigning champion Spain,
Germany, the Netherlands
and Belgium all legitimate
front-runners. And parity
has made for some very
competitive some
would say cruel group-
stage matchups.

U.S. OPEN -JUNE 12-15,19-22
For the first time, the
men's and women's U.S.
Opens will be played
on the same course,
Pinehurst No. 2, in the
same year. A week apart,
no less.
While it's a terrific
showcase for the women
odds are the upcoming
women's Open will be
mentioned a time or
12,000 during the men's
broadcast there are
concerns, as well. Like the
state of the domed greens
after a week of being
tromped on by Tiger, Rory
and the rest of the guys. If
there are weather delays
or a playoff, the women
will not get on the course
until Tuesday, giving them
just two days to prepare
for their biggest major.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL AUG.-JAN.


No matter what else
happens, there will be
peace in the land come
the end of the year in the
form of the first college
football playoff.
Unless, of course, five or
six teams finish the year
unbeaten.

he's been at UCF, when
we win the time of
possession, our winning
statistic is good," Knights
offensive coordinator
Charlie Taaffe said. "They
score a ton of points.
(Time of possession is)
not as relevant certainly
for them, but we have
to make first downs....
They're a prolific offen-
sive football team, and
we have to certainly do
our part to help out."
The stat to circle may
be UCF's third-down

The Knights have
converted about 40
percent of the time on
third-and-long situations
this season, Taaffe said, a
credit to the play-making
ability of quarterback
Blake Bortles. Baylor
defensive coordinator
Phil Bennett pointed out
that the Knights have had
just 38 snaps all season in
third-and-seven-plus, a
"phenomenal" rate.
"That means they're

get clearance to fly.
"It's been a long day,"
All-America defensive
back Lamarcus Joyner
said. "It's starting to sink
in that we are here."
Florida State (13-0)
blew through its com-
petition this season,
winning each of its games
by at least 14 points. The
Seminoles will play for
the BCS championship
for the first time since
the 2000 season. They
last won a national title
in 1999, under Bobby
Bowden.
"This is the ultimate
goal that we want to get
to," said Fisher, who is
in his fourth season as
Florida State's head coach.
Auburn's appearance at
ESPNZone was scheduled
for about 90 minutes after
the Florida State's.
The Tigers (12-1) were
the biggest surprise of
the season. A season after
Auburn finished 3-9, did
not win a Southeastern
Conference game and
fired coach Gene Chizik,
the Tigers and first-year
coach Gus Malzahn won
their last nine games to
reach the BCS title game
for the second time in
four seasons.
But the opening at
Texas had a chance to be
a sidebar to this national
title game.
Texas reportedly has
interest in hiring Fisher,
and even Malzahn's
name has come up as a
possible candidate for the
Longhorns.
"I think that there's a
sense of relief that's it's
done but anytime you're


of third-and-shorts,"
Bennett said. 'And they're
not putting themselves
behind the chains. It's
very important for us to
have success to make
that happen."
While much of the
attention was on Bortles
during a press conference
featuring UCF offensive
players in Arizona, the
more critical aspect in
Wednesday's game may
be the Knights' ability to
get their running backs
going.
Both Storm Johnson
and Will Stanback have
proven to be capable
backs this season, and
Bennett said he believes
both will "be playing on
Sunday" in the NFL.
Johnson has rushed
for more than 1,000
yards this season, while
Stanback has proven to
be more than just a com-
plementary addition to
the backfield, turning in
his biggest performances
of the year at critical
times.
If UCF hopes to pull off
the biggest upset of the
bowl season, it will have
to win the battle up front.
For Baylor, that's been


one of the top coaches in
the country and there's
a top program that's
open, you're going to be
on the list because that
institution, Texas, can go
and get basically anybody
they want," Florida State
athletic director Stan
Wilcox said. "But I know
Jimbo, he's a Seminole. He
wants to be with Florida
State and we want him to
be with Florida State."
Auburn announced
Malzahn agreed to a new
deal with Auburn the
week before the SEC title
game.
Fisher and Wilcox said
the terms of the deal,
which were not released,
were agreed upon about
three weeks ago.
"But when lawyers get
involved, you know how
things can take a little
while? It wasn't anything
bad it was just a matter
of dotting the I's and
crossing the t's. And then
we practiced all the way
up until Monday. I was
leaving at 6:30 in the
morning, getting home
11:30 I wasn't thinking
about anything. We got
the contract today. The
first time I had a chance
to sign it."
Fisher's previous deal
ran through 2015 and
paid $2.75 million annu-
ally. The new deal report-
edly pays him about $4.1
million per season.
Fisher wouldn't be the
first college coach to sign
a new deal and then bolt
for another job shortly
after, but the timing of
this does make it seem
that he could be off the
market.
"It's good that we're
able to get it done before
the championship game,"
Wilcox said.

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SHREVEPORT, La.
- Ka'Deem Carey took
a decisive victory in a
showdown between two
of the nation's top running
backs. Arizona's complete
domination of Boston
College was even more
impressive.
Carey rushed for 169
yards and two touch-
downs, B.J. Denker threw
for 275 touchdowns and
two touchdowns and the
Wildcats had an easy time
in a 42-19 victory over the
Eagles in the Advocare
VI V100 Bowl on Tuesday.
It was another impres-
sive performance for
Carey in what might be
his final college game.
The 5-foot-10, 207-pound
junior topped 100 yards
rushing for a 16th straight
game.
Arizona coach Rich
Rodriguez had plenty of
praise for Carey before
sneaking in a plug to
campaign for a senior
season.
"He's the hardest runner
in the country and I think
he's the best running back
in the country," Rodriguez
said before breaking into
a grin. "And he's still got
some things to learn. So
another year and he'd be
just right."
The game was billed as
a matchup between two
of the nation's top running
backs -Arizona's Carey
and Boston College's
Andre Williams. But
the duel between AP
All-America first team
selections was one-sided.
Williams, who won the
DoakWalker Award over
Carey, was held to 75 yards
rushing and a touchdown.
Boston College (7-6) didn't
score a touchdown until
Williams' 4-yard run early
in the fourth quarter.
"The biggest key for us
defensively was tackling
(Williams) before he had
the chance to get going,"
Rodriguez said. "We
wanted to tackle him early
and be physical."
Carey had plenty of
help. Arizona (8-5) had
529 total yards and scored
35 straight points to turn
a tight 7-6 game in the
second quarter into a 42-6
blowout by early in the
fourth.

No. 17 UCLA 42,Virginia
Tech 12: In El Paso, Texas, Brett
Hundley threw two touchdown passes
and ran for two more scores to help
UCLA rout Virginia Tech in the Sun Bowl.
The Bruins (10-3) outscored the
Hokies (8-5) 28-5 in the second half.
Hundley had an 86-yard touchdown
run and finished with 161 yards on 10
carries, and completed 16 of 29 passes
for 226 yards. He was selected the
co-MVP along with linebacker Jordan
Zumwalt, who had 10 tackles and an
interception.

Mississippi State 44, Rice
7: In Memphis, Tenn.,
Dak Prescott threw three touchdown
passes and ran for two more scores and
Mississippi State trounced Rice in the
most one-sided Liberty Bowl victory in
the game's 55-year history. Mississippi
State (7-6) wrapped up its fourth
straight winning season and prevented
Rice (10-4) from winning bowl games
in back-to-back years for the first time.
By accounting for five touchdowns,
Prescott set a Liberty Bowl record.

PASADENA, Calif.-
The game considered to
be the first Rose Bowl was
staged in 1902 to help
pay for the Tournament
of Roses Parade. An
unexpectedly huge crowd
of about 8,000 sat on tem-
porary stands in a park
and watched Stanford lose
49-0 to Michigan.
No. 5 Stanford has
returned to Pasadena
112 years later, facing No.
4 Michigan State today
in the 100th edition of
college football's quintes-
sential bowl game.
Far fewer fans will
show up to Arroyo Seco
on horses and buggies
this time, and the game
probably won't be
called early because of
a blowout. The Spartans
and Cardinal still believe
they'll put on a display of
throwback football for the
Granddaddy of Them All's
centennial celebration.
"There is a special quali-
ty to it," said David Yankey,
Stanford's All-American left

guard. "The Rose Bowl will
still go on, but it's kind of
an end of an era in some
sense, and we're excited to
be part of that."
Both the Rose Bowl
game and the stadium
have evolved since that
initial outing was even-
tually followed by the
institution of an annual
New Year's Day game in
1916. The 100th game falls
during the final season of
the Bowl Championship
Series, and the stadium
also will host the last BCS
title game on Monday.
Both Stanford and
Michigan State fell just shy
of contending for that title
shot, but it's tough to find
any disappointed players
on either team during the
usual week of Southern


California festivities for
the Rose Bowl teams.
The Cardinal (11-2) are
in their fourth consecutive
BCS bowl game after
winning the Pac-12, while
the Spartans (12-1) blew
through their Big Ten
schedule and won their
final nine games to earn
the school's first trip to
Pasadena since 1988.
"I would say this is
the biggest game in
our program's history,"
Michigan State safety
Kurtis Drummond said.
"Definitely the biggest
game in our lives. For
us to go down in history
as potentially one of the
best teams, it's definitely
a challenge that we're all
ready to take on."
Last year, the Cardinal
ended a 40-year Rose
Bowl victory drought by
holding off Wisconsin in a
defense-dominated game.
Stanford expects much
the same challenge from
Michigan State, since both
schools have run-first
offenses and the patience
to grind out wins the
old-fashioned way.

FORT LAUDERDALE -
Ohio State offensive line-
man Corey Linsley needed
about a week to get over
the disappointment.
Given the stakes, that
sounds fair.
If a play or two had
been executed a bit
better, then maybe Ohio
State would have beaten
Michigan State for the Big
Ten title and wrapped
up a spot in the BCS
national championship
game. Instead, the
seventh-ranked Buckeyes
(12-1) not only tasted
defeat for the first time
in 705 days, but were
knocked out of the title
picture and wound up
getting invited to the


Orange Bowl.
As far as consolation
prizes go, that's not exactly
a rough one.
"It really stung, obvious-
ly," Linsley said. "I think I
can speak for everybody
on the team when I say it
really stung. But with guys
like this, with the charac-
ter we have on this team
... it doesn't take a long
duration of time to get
over something like that.
We know we're going to
face bigger tests in life."
The next test awaiting
Ohio State is No. 12
Clemson (10-2), which is
back in the Orange Bowl
for the second time in
three seasons. And even
though the crystal football
is out of their reach, the
Buckeyes insist there's
plenty of reasons to be

ready for Friday.
There's the not-so-
small matter of going out
winners, which is always
a goal. A top-five ranking
to finish the year would
likely be within reach. On
top of all that, a victory
would make Ohio State
25-1 over Urban Meyer's
two seasons in Columbus
- matching the winnin-
gest two-year stretch in
school history plus
make the Buckeyes' coach


5-0 all-time in BCS games.
"Since you mention
that, that's a huge thing at
Ohio State," running back
Carlos Hyde said. "This
program has so much
tradition and to be one of
the first teams to be 25-1,
that's huge here. That's
definitely like history, right
there."
If Hyde needed any
extra reason to be inspired
for his college finale, it's
being played about 100
miles from Naples, Fla.,
where he attended high
school. But to hear him
talk on Tuesday, playing
a game like this in any
locale would have been
good enough for him.
"This is a BCS bowl.
This is still a huge game,"
Hyde said. "You don't
really need too much


motivation. Even though
you came up short to play
for the (national champi-
onship), you know, this is
still a huge game. Just got
to get past that last game.
I'm sure we are past that.
I feel like we are. You don't
really need too much
motivation."
But the chance for an
eye-popping number
doesn't hurt, either.
Over the past decade -
when teams playing up to
14 games in a season has
become more and more
commonplace the only
programs to go 25-1 or
better in a two-year span
are USC, Boise State and
TCU.
"That's a lot of wins,
isn't it?," asked Ohio State
offensive lineman Jack
Mewhort, smiling.

Tebow says he'll



chase QB dream



despite TV gig


By PETE IACOBELLI
ASSOCIATED PRESS

COLUMBIA, S.C. -Tim
Tebow will continue chas-
ing his goal to be a NFL
quarterback, even after
signing on to help ESPN
launch the SEC Network
this fall.
The former Florida
Gator said Tuesday he
trains five days a week for
a return to the league.
"I feel like I'm the best
that I've ever been as a
quarterback right now.
I hope I get the oppor-
tunity to show that," he
said. "But I'm also looking
forward to being part of
'SEC Nation' and part of
ESPN."
The 26-year-old
Heisman Trophy winner
signed on Monday to be
on the SEC Network's
pregame show starting in
August. He'll be part of
the crew that will travel to
Southeastern Conference
schools in advance of SEC
games on the fledgling
network.
Tebow's first "SEC
Nation" show will be on


Aug. 28 before Texas A&M
opens the season at South
Carolina, a game that will
be shown exclusively on
the SEC Network. Tebow
and the show then head
to Auburn on Aug. 30
where the Tigers will take
on Arkansas.
That is, of course,
if Tebow doesn't get a
call from the NFL that
has him tied up that
weekend.
"I'm not sure what's
ahead of me," Tebow said.
"I'm very excited to have
this opportunity at ESPN,
but who knows what the
next few months will
hold."
Tebow has bounced
around the NFL since
leaving Florida as part of
two national champions.
"I don't have any
regrets" about the NFL,
Tebow said. "I've just
tried to focus on being a
better quarterback, being
a better athlete and being
ready whenever a team
gave me a call."

TOP SEEDS
CRUISE IN QATAR

DOHA, Qatar (AP) -
Top-seed Rafael Nadal,
second-seed David Ferrer
and third-seed Andy
Murray opened the new
tennis season with first-
round wins on the last
day of 2013.
Murray had the easiest
path to victory on New
Year's Eve, barely breaking
a sweat during his 6-0,
6-0 win over 2,129th-
ranked Qatari wildcard
recipient Mousa Shanan
Zayed. The match took
all of 37-minutes and
Murray hit the practice
courts afterwards for a
little extra court time.
Defending champion
and fifth-seed Richard
Gasquet also moved along
to the second round
with a 7-5, 6-1 win over
Egyptian wild-card recipi-
ent Karim Hossam....
Top-ranked Serena Williams'first
competitive match of the season was
by no means perfect, but the 6-4,
6-4 win over Andrea Petkovic at the
Brisbane International in Brisbane,
Australia, was a decent start against
a player who has been ranked as high
as No. 9. Williams made 36 unforced
errors, including the big miss on
Petkovic's floater in the fifth game
of the second set, but hit 35 winners
and fired 11 aces including one at 122
mph to bring up set point in the first.
Third-seeded Maria Sharapova
received a walkover into the quarter-
finals when her Australian opponent,
17-year-old qualifier Ashleigh Barty,
withdrew with a left thigh injury....
Top-seeded Li Na advanced to the
second round of the Shenzhen Open
in Shenzhen, China, by beating Vera
Zvonareva of Russia 7-5,6-3.


HOCKEY

Canada beats U.S. in
world juniors: Connor McDavid
and Curtis Lazar scored in a 2:19 span
in the third period and Canada beat
the United States 3-2 to win Group A
in the world junior hockey tourna-
ment in Malmo, Sweden.
Nic Petan also scored for Canada
(3-0-1), and Zach Fucale made 24
saves. Canada will face Switzerland
-fourth in Group B -in the
quarterfinals Thursday. Miami of
Ohio's Riley Barber and New Jersey
Devils farmhand Stefan Matteau
scored for the defending champion
United States (3-1-0). The Americans
will play Russia in the quarterfinals.


WINTER SPORTS

American Hamilton
wins Tour de Ski sprint: In
Lenzerheide, Switzerland, American
cross-country skier Simeon Hamilton


announced himself as a possible
medal contender for the Sochi
Olympics by winning a men's freestyle
sprint for his first career Tour de
Ski stage victory. Hamilton held off
Canada's Alex Harvey and Martin
Johnsrud Sundby of Norway on the
final straight for his first podium finish
in any World Cup event.


RUNNING

Kenyans sweep street
race: Edwin Kipsang of Kenya won
his second straight Sao Silvestre street
race in Sao Paulo, finishing ahead of
countrymen Mark Korir and Stanley
Koech.
Kipsang ran the 15-kilometer
(9.3-mile) race on the streets of South
America's biggest city in 43 minutes,
48 seconds, beating Korir by 21
seconds. Nancy Kipron of Kenya won
the women's race for the first time,
finishing in 51 minutes, 58 seconds,
ahead of Ethiopia's Netsanet Kebede
and Kenyan Jackeline Sakilu.


JUDICIARY
Plea deal linked to
Miami Heat: A former Ohio
man accused of operating multi-
million-dollar frauds that include
allegations he cheated Miami Heat
players of millions of dollars indicated
that he'll plead guilty to wire fraud,
money laundering and tax evasion
charges.
A 135-count indictment filed this
year describes a scheme under which
Haider Zafar allegedly swindled a
Washington, D.C., businessman out of
$10 million between 2008 and 2010.
A witness who testified against
Zafar in August alleged Zafar also
defrauded Heat players, including
former forward Mike Miller. The
witness, international investment
attorney Andrew Fine, said the players
and other Florida residents invested
$8 million with Zafar.


SPEEDSKATING

Davis, Richardson win
again: Shani Davis and Heather
Richardson will head to the Sochi
Olympics with plenty of hype. Looks
as if they're up to the challenge.
Davis and Richardson cruised to
victories in the 1,500 meters at the U.S.
speedskating trials in Kearns, Utah,
leaving little doubt they are the top
skaters on a team that should have
plenty of medal potential in February.
"That was a really great race,"Davis
said, beaming about his performance
at the Utah Olympic Oval. "I'm really
happy with my fitness and conditioning
right now. I'm going to look to improve
in certain areas, but I have plenty of
time to do that before Sochi."
Davis already had qualified in the
1,000 the race he won at the last
two Olympics. He took first in the
1,500 with a time of minute, 43.20
seconds, clearly eager to improve on
the silver medals he settled for in that
event at both Turin and Vancouver.

* NFL NOTEBOOK



Jaguars let Jones-Drew




test free-agent market


* GOLF: Rory Mcllroy


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
JACKSONVILLE -
Jacksonville plans to let
veteran running back
Maurice Jones-Drew test
free agency.
General manager Dave
Caldwell said Tuesday
that Jones-Drew has
"earned the right" to en-
ter the market in March.
Caldwell added that the
Jaguars would decide
whether to match or beat
another team's offer.
"This is his first time,
he's been a great player
in this organization, he's
had a great career and
he's earned the right to
see what his value and
his market is," Caldwell
said. "And it's our right
to decide if we want to
match it and bring him
back. I think that's kind
of where we're at now."
Jones-Drew, a sec-
ond-round draft pick
in 2006, has 8,071 yards
rushing and 68 touch-
downs in eight seasons.
He missed the final 10
games last season with
a left foot injury and
played much of this
season while recovering
from surgery and dealing
with a strained right
hamstring.
The running back
made it clear Monday
that he wants to stay in
Jacksonville, but said
his decision is all about
money. He just played
out a five-year, $31 mil-
lion contract. The deal
paid him $4.95 million in
2013.
Jones-Drew also
acknowledged Monday
that he has a number in
mind, but he sounded
resigned to a potential

is another.
Lovie is different. After
nine years, yes, there were
those who were weary
of Smith's unflagging
optimism. But if you look
back on the Smith years
with the Bears, they were
a success. Three times, he
won division titles. Once,
he reached the Super
Bowl with Rex Grossman
as his quarterback, a
miracle that ranks up
there with the loaves and
the fishes. Overall, he was
18 games over .500 with

Last year, the free-

a bunch of guys named
Ned playing quarterback.
From way down where
the Bucs live, that all
looks pretty good.
Here's the thing about
Smith. He's a ball coach.
He demands loyalty with-
out being soft, compet-
itiveness without being
hard. As Dan Pompei of
the Sporting News wrote:
"A sure thing if ever there
was one. Consistent
as a healthy heartbeat,
steady as the terrain on a
Midwestern drive."
Yeah, Smith is a defen-
sive coach. These days,
some people are saying
that as if it's a swear word.

Bengals change
punters: Cincinnati waived
Shawn Powell after only two games
and signed Zoltan Mesko. Powell was
signed after Kevin Huber suffered a
season-ending broken jaw during
a 30-20 loss in Pittsburgh on Dec.
15. Powell shanked a 10-yard punt
during a 34-17 win over Baltimore
on Sunday.

Manning record will
stand: The NFL announced Peyton
Manning's single-season record for


defense is a lot closer to
the rest of the league than
the offense. Why wouldn't
you want a defensive
coach?
Here's the thing about
defensive-minded
coaches. If they can
get the right offensive
coordinator and the right
quarterback, they tend to
do just fine. Bill Belichick
came up on the defensive
side of things, after all.
And Don Shula. And Tom
Landry.
You want a number to
think about? From 2004-
12, Smith won 81 games.
Over the same period, the
Bucs won 62.
Look, this isn't just
about hiring a familiar
face. If it was, Dungy,
Gruden and Morris are all
available. One caution,
though. The Glazers
have to hire a coach and


5,477 yards passing will stand.
Elias Sports Bureau, the league's
official statistician, reviewed a 7-yard
pass from Manning to wide receiver
Eric Decker and determined it will
remain a forward pass and not a
lateral, which would have made it a
7-yard run.
That would have subtracted 7
yards from Manning's total, leaving
him with 5,470 yards, six shy of Drew
Brees'2011 record.
NFL spokesman Michael Signora
said Elias determined "that the fairest
resolution is for the ruling of the
one-site stats crew to stand."

Chiefs put LB on IR:
Kansas City placed linebacker James-
Michael Johnson on injured reserve
with a sprained ankle and signed
linebacker Robert James as they
began preparing for the playoffs.
Johnson was hurt in Sunday's
overtime loss to San Diego. Johnson
had played primarily on special teams
this season.

Jets'coach, GM show
unified front: Rex Ryan is
"comfortable"with his current
contract, although the NewYork Jets
coach and general manager John
Idzik would not address questions
about whether an extension is in the
works.
Ryan, who has one year left on his
deal, was retained for next season
after finishing 8-8 and missing the
playoffs for the third consecutive
year.
It had been speculated that Idzik
could want to hire a coach of his
choice this offseason, but the two
presented a unified front Tuesday at
a news conference to wrap up the
season.

Seahawks playoff
tickets sell out: Seattle
announced playoff tickets sold out in
less than 30 minutes. The team sold a
limited number of tickets for the Jan.
11 game after giving season ticket
holders first dibs on the seats they
have occupied all season.


a general manager. One
man can't do both.
(On the other hand,
there are plenty of general
manager types who have
worked with Smith such
as Tim Ruskell, the former
Seattle general manager,
and Jerry Angelo, the
former Bears general
manager. Both of them
grew up here, too.)
My advice for the Bucs?
Don't dally.
Other teams like
Smith's resume, too. The
Redskins. The Texans.
Maybe the Lions. The
Bucs need to be bold, and
they need to be decisive,
and they need to be
quick.
It is time for the solid
choice.
It is time for the famil-
iar choice.
It is time for the right
choice.

began to see each other
in the summer of 2011.


By DOUG FERGUSON
ASSOCIATED PRESS
KAPALUA, Hawaii-
Four years later, the words
of Jack Nicklaus resonate
even louder.
"If Tiger is going to
pass my record, this is a
big year for him in that
regard," Nicklaus said at
the start of 2010.
Nicklaus was referring
to his record 18 majors,
and the major cham-
pionship venues that
favored Woods -Augusta
National, Pebble Beach
and St. Andrews, all cours-
es he had won before.
Woods never had a serious
chance on the back nine
of any major that year. His
tally remains at 14. And
that makes 2014 bigger.
Woods is facing an-
other favorable menu of
major sites. He already
has majors at Augusta,
Royal Liverpool (British
Open) and Valhalla (PGA
Championship). The U.S.
Open is at Pinehurst No.
2: Woods was third in 1999
and runner-up in 2005.
A new year begins
Friday at the Tournament
of Champions at Kapalua.
Woods is among PGA Tour
winners who chose to sit
this one out, but his per-
formance in the majors
figures to be a major topic
of conversation this year.
"I always think that
the Masters signals a lot
with Tiger," NBC analyst
Johnny Miller said during
a conference call. "If he
doesn't win the Masters,
I think it gives a great,
big 'Uh-oh,' because that
course is so perfect for his
game."


There's a big difference
withWoods the last time
he faced such a tantalizing
rotation of majors.
Nicklaus spoke of a
"big year" when Woods
was more of a mystery
than ever. No one had
seen Woods in more
than a month going into
2010 and didn't even
know where he was. His
personal life at home, his
mystique in golf and his
appeal in the corporate
world were crumbling in
spectacular fashion.
Now, he is No. 1 in the
world. He won five times
last year against some of
the strongest fields. He
won the Vardon Trophy for
the ninth time, the PGA
Tour money title for the
10th time and was voted
PGA Tour player of the
year for the 11th time.
Still, uncertainty
remains, mainly because
he hasn't won a major
since 2008 and he hasn't
broken 70 on the weekend
of any major since the
2011 Masters.
Will familiar venues
help? Not necessarily.
More significant than
where the majors are in
2014 is the factWoods
turned 38 on Monday.
By age alone, Woods has
been ahead of Nicklaus'
pace in the majors since
winning his seventh
major in 2002 Masters
at age 26. They are tied
now. Nicklaus also had 14
majors when he turned
38, and then he added his
15th major that summer
in the British Open.
That's what makes this a
big year for Woods.

EIC> ,January 1 7,201i


By CHRIS KOURAPIS
SUN CORRESPONDENT
A simple sign at the entrance to the Towers Plaza
on Indiana Avenue (also SR 776) in Englewood
advertizes "Pizza."
What a surprise to discover that Armadillo's is
much, much more than a pizza place. When Rick
Bizzaro decided to name his business "Armadillo's" his
wife, Katie, and his friends supported the idea.
"The unusual name caught on quickly. Customers
and family began bringing us hand-carved, metal,
and all sorts of armadillo figurines as gifts," said
Katie, "and the trend continues."
Armadillo's is huge. Most of the space is devoted to
about a dozen ornate pool tables, bistro sets with high
stools, and side seating arranged along walls. Lighting
is dim throughout, but pool tables are brilliantly lit to
enable players to concentrate on their games.
At the entrance, a quarter of the space is devoted to a
well-stocked bar where customers may order drinks, piz-
za, sandwiches or Italian specialties to go. Many choose,
however, to linger over meals in Armadillo's comfortable,
family-friendly, indoor or outside dining areas.
"We never intended to become a restaurant,"

DINING OUT GO


Live with love, walk with peace, eat with
passion. That's the motto of new Wave Grill chef
Joel Sardinhah, who is rapidly making an impact
at the Venice restaurant.
Situated inside the newly renovated Ramada
Venice Resort, the Wave Grill is positioning itself
as the go-to dining spot in a town full of excellent
dining options. In order to jump start that process,
they have hired Chef Sardinhah and are preparing
to unveil a completely new menu.
"We are a full service restaurant serving
American Continental cuisine," said Jeannie
Gomes, director of sales and marketing. "Right
now, we just want our local folks to come in and
give us a try."
The new restaurant is light and bright, with
washed wood floors and plenty of windows to
let in the sunshine, giving it a casually elegant,
beachy feel. Chef Sardinhah's menu is full of
freshly made salads, grilled flatbreads, a variety
of sandwiches and tasty "chef's selections" like
Blackened Grouper and Shrimp, Tropical BBQ Beef
Short Ribs and Chicken Alfredo de Rosa.
Most recently, Chef Sardinhah was the
executive chef of the Good Winds Seafood and
Wine Bar in Hatteras Island, on North Carolina's
Outer Banks. While there, he partnered with
local licensed fishermen to provide fresh fish
and shellfish daily to the restaurant, a practice
which was at least partially responsible for the
Urbanspoon and TripAdvisor awards he won while
he was there.
At the Wave Grill, the chef will be showcasing
some of his favorite creations with Nightly
Features as follows:
Monday: Fried Chicken, Mashed Potato'n'
Gravy, Vegetable, Salad or Soup for $12.95
*Tuesday: 1 Dozen Fried Shrimp, French Fries,


Coleslaw, Salad or Soup for $16.95
*Wednesday: 1 Pound Snow Crab Steanel
Red Potatoes, Corn on the Cob, Salad :or ':Soup for :
$17.95
Thursday: Prime Rib, Mashed Pctat:oe';
Broccoli, Salad or Soup for $18.95
Friday: Fish Fry, French Fries, Cole;1la ..33alad
or Soup for $12.95
Saturday: Maine Lobster, Steamed :Red
Potatoes, Corn on the Cob, Salad or ."'oup for
$18.95
Sunday Funday: 1 Dozen Chicken WOinr.; for
$8.95 or Peel 'n' Eat Shrimp for $8.95 S 1 i %
"We will also be having early bird pecual ironic
3 p.m. to 5 p.m. every day," Gomes said. "That will
be 20 percent off everything on the menu."
She said that the restaurant is an excellent
place to go for local entertainment, too.
"We've had some great success with Jazz Night
on Tuesday, from 5:30 to 8 p.m.," she said. "It's
music to accompany your dining experience, and
reservations are encouraged."
Wednesday nights from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Wave
Grill are reserved for Country Night, and they
even clear the stage out of the dining room to
accommodate line dancing.
As if the brand new chef with a new menu,
plenty of inside seating and outside tables and
live music nights weren't enough, Gomes said
there's one more piece of the puzzle yet to be
added that will bring it all together.
"We're going to be doing a new dinner the-
atre," she said. "It will be like dining in a cabaret,
and the new series of shows will be finalizing in
February."
The Wave Grill is located inside the Ramada
Resort Venice at 425 U.S. 41 Bypass North, in
Venice, and is open for breakfast, lunch and
dinner. For more information, visit the Facebook
page or the website at www.ramadavenice.com,
or call 941-308-7700.


The new Wave Grill, at the Ramada Venice Resort, serves American Continental
cuisine. The outside seating area is great for dining or just to have a drink.

demonstrating how she creates earrings on-site
during the show.
"Our EarClimberZ climbs up the ear and uses only
a single piercing or no piercing at all," said Alan,
"and the first person to bring us a copy of the 'Let's
Go!' article at the event will receive a free pair of
EarClimberZ's, a $25 value."

"The Beauty sleeping in the wood." More than just a
children's fairy tale, the story includes messages about
inner beauty and the powers of love and evil.
This collaboration of Petipa and PyotrTchaikovsky,
who composed the score, first premiered at the
Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg in 1890, and was

Venice Theatre brings you 'Superior


Donuts' by Pulitzer winner Tracy Letts


PROVIDED BY VENICE THEATRE


Venice Theatres first production of 2014 is Tracy
Letts'Chicago-based comedy Superior Donuts.
The play will open Thursday, Jan. 9, in the
Pinkerton Theatre and run through Sunday,
Jan. 26. Performances are at 8 p.m. Tuesday through
Saturday and at 2 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets range
from $25 to $28 for adults, and $10 to $15 for
students, Tickets now on sale at the theatre's box
office, online at www.venicestage.com, or by phone
at 941-488-1115.
Superior Donuts introduces audiences to a cast
of neighborhood characters headed up by Arthur
Przybyszewski. Arthur is the proprietor of Superior
Donuts, a decrepit shop located in the heart of
Chicago's equally decrepit Uptown neighborhood.
His new employee, Franco Wicks, is an idealistic


self-starter who wants to shake things up a bit with
healthier menu items and poetry nights. Franco's
youthful exuberance reflects the neighborhood itself
which is experiencing a slow but sure gentrification.
Arthur is taken aback by his new hire's enthusiasm.
His own energy is long gone, left in the '60s where
he was dodging the draft, getting arrested at the '68
Chicago riots, and collecting the concert T-shirts he
wears to this day. Throughout this character-driven
piece Arthur and Franco learn from each other, deal
with some difficult life situations and experience the
redemptive power of friendship.
Anyone should be able to appreciate the play
Charles Isherwood of The New York Times compared
to "Norman Lear's groundbreaking shows of the
1970s, which mixed smart jokes and social commen-
tary in satisfying proportions;'but Chicagoans will
find specific treasures. They'll enjoy an authentic

Duo performs for


your listening pleasure


By SHIRLEY GEORGE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Debbie Jamieson and Michael Roberts have
been a duo, on and off-stage, for over a year.
Both strong individual musicians, they blend
vocals and create lush guitar as a backdrop to
their folk/American foundation. They throw in
a smattering of country, swing, rock'n'roll, and
some originals.
Their obvious enjoyment of music and each
other creates an atmosphere that one emcee has
claimed "suspended the audience momentarily to
another dimension."Another venue manager has
dubbed them "couples therapy."
Jamieson and Roberts met at the Will McLean
Folk Festival near Brooksville, Fla., and have
played the-Florida folk friival ir(ull including
spring and fall festivals in Barberville, Fla. Local
-enues iiTffdle the Hibiscus Festival and City
Market in Punta-Gorda,

Restaurant in Englewood on Tuesday nights.
They also enjoytheir gig on Saturdays at Mercer's
Fresh Roasted Coffees in Charlotte Harbor. They
frequently participate at the Punta Gorda Guitar
Army on Thursday evenings in Gilchrist Park.
Originally from Kentucky, Roberts started
playing music in high school with a band that was
influenced by British rock. From there, he moved
to back porch pickin'and honed a repertoire of
songs by John Prine, Marshall Tucker Band, and
the Eagles.
"You can't get out of my part of Kentucky
without some coal minin'and labor songs,";'
Roberts said.
Roberts has lived in Florida for 15 years. Before
he and Jamieson formed their duo, he was a solo
performer in various venues around Citrus County,
Fla. Including the Woodview Coffee House and
Studio Arts Center. Also, he performed with
acoustical bands,

DUO
FROM PAGE 18
Jamieson was born in Miami, Fla.
Her earliest memories include harmo-
nizing with her father and brother,


and singing solo for her kindergarten
graduation. As a teenager, she moved
to Homer, Alaska, where she received
her first guitar. "I would sing and
play basically anywhere they would
let me."
Jamieson returned to Florida in


2001. In 2007 she became a founding
member of a group called "Mood
Swing"that performed at the Captain's
Table in Fishermen's Village in Punta
Gorda, and other local venues. She has
also performed solo or in combination
with various local musicians at benefits


and private parties.
Roberts and Jamieson have spent
their first year together developing a
broad repertoire that features songs
of love and peace. They are currently
in a phase of songwriting, and due to
popular demand, plan to produce their


first commercial CD sometime in 2014.
They claim that they"are a conge-
nial fit for atmospheres more inclined
to listening and less inclined toward
venues with heavy drinking."

Nandhili ranes in their environment.
The semi-private Boca Royale Golf& Country Club is open to the public and offers newly
renovated practice facilities with putting green, sand bunker, and a pitching and chipping area.
U.S.G.A. golf professional Adrian Matern and assistant professional Scott Holcomb otter lessons to
both members and the golfing public. Holcomb, who has been with Boca Royale since 2009, said the
whole experience begins when golfers are welcomed in the parking lot by courteous staff and proceed
to the pro shop and out to the beautiful grounds. After enjoying the outdoors, golfers are invited inside
to the Georgian style clubhouse for exceptional dining and picturesque views.
"It's not about hitting the drivers and it's not about making par," said Holcomb. "It's about enjoying
all the other things along the way."
Golfers have a choice of five tees ranging from the Diamond Tees, measuring 6,357 yards, to the
Bronze Tees, measuring 4,891 yards. Matern, who qualified for the PGA in South Africa, says that
although it is considered a short course, it has earned its reputation as a true local challenge. "It is
truly a shot-makers layout," Matern said. "With towering oaks hugging narrow fairways, our sharp
doglegs and false carries demand the full attention of even the most skilled golfers."
Memberships are available to non-residents of the Boca Royale community and can be purchased
for single, family, and seasonal terms. A variety of plans offer benefits including member-only golf
tournaments, driving range rights, Bocce, clay tennis courts, and a private fitness center.
Boca Royale's clubhouse offers fine dining at the Fairway Dining Room and a casual dining
experience at the 19th Hole. Boca Royale Golf& Country Club is located at 1601 Englewood Road in
Englewood. For information or tee times call the golf pro shop at 941-474-7475.

Happy New Year to our loyal readers

New Year's wishes
for Port Charlotte
y family and I are into the
whole sustainability move-
ment, so along with our gar-
dening adventures, our conversations
frequently turn to chickens or more
specifically, our lack of chickens.
Our New Year's wish is that we could
have legal chickens this year. I'm still
a little puzzled and dismayed at the
fact that we, as a country, have gone
from encouraging urban gardening and
chicken keeping to banning it. I'm all
for proper zoning and code compli-
ance, but it seems like a win-win for
county and residents to have a specific
code and a reasonable fee to keep
chickens on residential property.
My next wish for Port Charlotte is to fill
all the empty storefronts. I'm thrilled to
see that Periwinkle Place has managed it,
and I'm betting that if rents were a little
more reasonable, we could encourage
new businesses instead of just watching
established ones close up shop.

Wilsons sponsor Relay for Life breakfast


HERALD PHOTOS BY BETSY WILLIAMS


For years, Phil and Linda Wilson with Wilson Realty in Charlotte Harbor hosted a community
breakfast outdoors in back of their business on Dec. 13. The event featured home-cooked food,
live music and lots of fun and friendship, as they asked for donations for the Relay for Life team
they support. This is the third year the traditional breakfast has also been a fundraiser.


Phil calls them the Sunshine Band, and then there is a group that plays 10 feet away in the shade
appropriately named the Shady Band. All musicians are encouraged to bring an instrument and
gather around for music.


Jerry Raulerson and his son, Ronnie, enjoy their
breakfasts cooked by volunteers.


I Fw ,I IV .
Plates filled, Sheryle Marcgerison and Dean Smith get ready to find a table at which to sit, eat
and enjoy the music.


Six-year-old Michael Mapstone came for the
bacon.


Before leaving the Wilson breakfast, Steve and
Theresa Matava, Pat Archibald and Maria Domato
could not resist a photo in front of the knight that
has become an icon in Charlotte Harbor.


Local musicians bring out their instruments to jam. This group is referred to as the Shady Band,
as they prefer playing under the trees.


When looking for a second helping of food, Ed Canfield with Harbor Towing knows who to warm
up to breakfast volunteer Melisa Brooks with Wilson Realty.

NOLES: New Year's wishes for our town


FROM PAGE 1

Third, I think we need to create a
downtown section like Punta Gorda
and Englewood have. Parkside would
be a great central location, but wher-
ever it goes, we're going to need a
cohesive design standard and enough
specialty boutiques to make it a
shopping destination, not just a stop on
our way home. That's going to take a lot
more planning and teamwork, though.
Fourth, we have a huge underutilized
resource our waterfront property
in Charlotte Harbor. We must be the
only town that has so much undevel-
oped property on or near the water.


Waterfront property is usually taxed at
a higher rate. All those improvements
we want to see in the county could be
partially funded by developing that
section of Port Charlotte. That would
make another excellent location for
an arts, shopping and high-end condo
district.
I think it's time we start dreaming a
little bigger for Port Charlotte, and this
is the perfect time to start. What would
you like to see for Port Charlotte in
the New Year? Email me at nnoles88@
gmail.com and I'll print the responses
next week. Put "wishes" in the subject
line so I can keep an eye out for them.
Happy New Year!

"The food is fabulous; we have a great
chef from the Olive Branch Cafe. The
setting will be elegant, but not stuffy,
with white tablecloths and flowers."
Models for the fashion show are
teachers, retired teachers and schol-
arship students. The fashions, from
Anthony's Ladies Apparel and Back on
the Rack Consignments, are clothes
that anyone can afford and in all sizes,
according to Allesee. Local merchants
have donated many items for the silent
auction, including artwork, decorative
items, gift certificates, theater tickets,
massage therapy and much more.
Delta Kappa Gamma International,
a professional honorary society of
women educators, was formed over
80 years ago to promote professional
and personal growth of its members
and excellence in education. Gamma
Nu, the Port Charlotte Chapter, was
formed in the 1970s.
Members include retired teachers
and those still teaching. Nearly all
Charlotte County schools are represent-
ed by member teachers. Membership
is by invitation only and considered a
prestigious honor.
"You must be recommended by
someone who knows how good a
teacher you were," said Allesee.
Allesee is retired from a 30-year

Encore!


Since early 18th century France,
the preferred audience accolade to urge on
additional musical performances following a
stirring individual or orchestral program.



Encores have reigned since the Charlotte
Symphony Orchestra began its 2013-2014
season under the direction of Maestro
Raffaele Ponti. Two sold-out concerts, seven
standing ovations, and wide critical acclaim
- and the BEST IS YET TO COME.


Don't miss this EXHILARATING evening, in
which the CSO partners with the Visual Arts
Center to blend music and art. Many of the
areas most talented artists will display their
paintings inspired by the music of Pictures

Pirate iV team loses in 'Groundhog Day' game

The two teams squared off in the
first game of the season on Nov. 11
in Arcadia, as the Lady Bulldogs
jumped out to an 8-0 lead. The
Pirates came back to make it 8-4
at the end of the period. DeSoto
led by six going into the final eight
minutes, and both teams scored
6 points in the final period in the
30-24 loss.
Fast forward to Dec. 17. Again, the
Pirates fell behind 8-0, but this time
closed the gap to 8-6 with a nice
6-point run. DeSoto County led by
eight going into the final period and
again both teams scored 6 points as
the Bulldogs left town with a 39-31
win.
There were other similarities, but
the bottom line says it was a loss for
the Pirates.
"It's the third game in a row that
we came out flat. Their press caught
us off guard to begin with. We hav-
en't seen that in four games, but we
should have adjusted to it quicker.
Take away those first four minutes
and we've got a tie game. The prob-
lem is that the game is 32 minutes
long and not 28," said first-year
Pirate JV coach Danny Zarzutzki.
The Pirates not only had trouble
with the full-court press that caused

is, so they can't quit playing hard or
I'll find somebody else who will,"
added Zarzutzki.
One of the players who battled
throughout the game and gave
a gutty performance was the
80-pound Tristen Lechien. She took
several hard charges and ended up
on her back several times.
"There was a lot, too many to keep
track of (times she hit the floor) but
I have to try to stop them from scor-
ing. I don't know, for some reason
we start out slow in some games and
then we usually come back. I felt we
got better as the game progressed
but it just wasn't enough," Lechien
said.
KameiraWesley scored 10 points
in the loss just behind Alexis Bondi's
12. Three of her points came on six
attempts from the free throw line.
As a team the Pirates were only 5 of
21 from the line.
The freshman point guard said,
"The point guard is like the captain.
I have to try to make my layups or
distribute the ball to my teammates
so they can make their shots. I like
passing the ball to them and watch-
ing them score, but sometimes I
have an open shot and will take it if
I think I can make it."

Port Charlotte Pirates' JV coach Danny Zarzutzki takes a time out and talks with his team during
an 8-0 run by DeSoto County to begin the game. After the time out, the Pirates went on a 6-0 run
but lost the game 39-31.

New gallery open at Pottery Express complex


ulti-talented artist Ashley Ran-
dolph recently opened Brush-
strokes by Ashley: Studio,
Gallery, Boutique as well as a workshop
in the Pottery Express complex, located
at 25370 Zemel Road in Punta Gorda.
She really is a Jill-of-all trades, as she
paints, sculpts, builds unique furniture,
restores furniture, paints murals, teach-
es art and is a licensed art therapist
who brings joy and learning to people
with brain disorders.
She now operates her own art gallery
- her dream realized.
How does she find the time with a
6-year old son?
"I am so lucky to have my mom and
dad close by to help with the gallery,"
Randolph said. Her folks, Jeanne and
Greg Randolph, live in Cape Coral and
are often found in the gallery helping
their daughter.
Randolph has been creative all her
life, although she did not train formally.
"I took a few classes in college, but
for the most part, I just learned by
doing," she said.
Her two-to-three-hour classes at the
studio cover anything from painting
wine glasses to planting miniature fairy
gardens and portraits. Classes generally
range from $16 to $36, and she pro-
vides all the materials.
'After each class, the students can
take home what they create," Randolph
said.
Her classes are designed to bring
out the creativity in folks who feel
they have no talent. She plans to start
classes for children, which she will call
Art and Ice Cream.
As a registered art therapist,
Randolph spends two days a week
working with people with dementia,
Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, autism and


M arly Thomd craft




tcratt I@emtbarqmall.com.

other patients with brain disorders.
Randolph works with the Art
Without Boundaries Association as a
MNEMETherapist, primarily in Punta
Gorda and Port Charlotte. Spending
35 minutes with each patient, she
combines art, storytelling, music and
physical exercise, all of which she
said stimulates the brain to make new
connections.
Other artists display and sell their
work at the gallery on Zemel Road, and
Randolph said she is always looking for
new artists.
Everything is handmade, including
pottery, wood-turned pieces, pet por-
traits, murals and distinctive furniture
pieces.
Randolph said she loves Punta
Gorda.
"The art scene is so vibrant, and, yet,
it is such a lovely, calm place," she said.
She has joined the Punta Gorda
Chamber of Commerce and is getting
to know other area artists as she learns
about the region's history and culture.
To learn more about Randolph's
classes, visit her Facebook site by
searching for "Brushstrokes by Ashley."
She can also be reached by calling
239-292-8072.
Presently, the gallery is open from
11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday through
Friday and from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
Saturday and Sundays.

SDebbie Allison and Janet Konkolics
are longtime friends from Penn-

friends so many years ago, saying that
they used to work together. "We both
installed and repaired telephones and
that's where we met."
When asked what Allison and
Konkolics were going to resolve for
the New Year, the two gave similar
responses.
Konkolics said, "We've talked about
just being more satisfied in life and
grateful for what we have."

stating they are tough or bad. However, many
teens who have opted to get inked say their
tattoos have meanings, such as family, cultural
heritage, religion, the remembrance of some-
one, hobbies they do and even little things in
their life that they enjoy.
"A lot of tattoos mean something to the


person getting it," explained Cassi Moore, a
senior at Charlotte High School. "I got the
tattoo on my foot for the remembrance of my
dad that passed away 8 years ago."
Tattoos also show the creativity of a per-
son, as it is a form of art. They can also tell a
story about one's past or offer insight into the
defining characteristics of a person.
This is exactly why NisaWarda, a CHS
junior, opted to get a tattoo.
"I got a tattoo because I wanted it to define
me as a person," Warda said. "I wanted it
to be my decision, and it was. I was happy
that my parents allowed me to get it. I was
actually kinda shocked."
In the end, tattoos are a matter of personal
choice.


Trendy TV shows for high schoolers ft


By KAITLYN SALESMAN
CHS SENIOR
television shows are like fashion -
some are trending and some are out
of style. Like fashion, TV shows change
with each coming season, and popular televi-
sion shows come and go.
But just like classic cuts, style and fabrics,
some television shows are here to stay.
"Pretty little Liars" is one of Hannah
Cunanan's favorite shows.
"... it has so much suspense that keeps you
on the edge of your seat and creates so many
surprises," the sophomore at Charlotte High


School explained. "You never know what's
going to happen next, which is the best part."
Senior Julia Fowlie, is into another show.
"My favorite show is 'Graceland,' because it's
very action-filled," the Charlotte High School
student explained.
But there's plenty of shows to go around.
According to TV Guide's website, www.
tvguide.com, there are 10 shows that shine
above the rest. As of last week, the top shows
were as follows: "The Blacklist," "Dancing with
the Stars," "Homeland," "Scandal," "NCIS,"
"Sleepy Hollow," "The Bachelorette," "Under
the Dome," 'America's Got Talent" and "Suits."
Some shows are on their 10th or 11th season,


which shows that the producers are doing
something right. However, some shows do not
even make it through a full season.
Depending on the network, television shows
vary. Some networks have certain types of
shows that people enjoy. Not every network
can have all categories of shows. That is why
some networks are more popular than others.
Television shows can trend in popularity, and
most shows contain about 10 to 12 episodes
per season.
When someone really enjoys a show, the
season seems to go by extremely fast. That's
why when you find a show you like, enjoy it
while it lasts.

cope with his wife's illness. It really
choked me up."
In April 2011, Charlotte County
hosted the Florida Golden Gloves
State Boxing Championships. More
than 220 boxers registered and 180
competed for the title. That July, the
Women's National Golden Gloves
Championships also came to the
county.
'All the best talent in the country
came to Charlotte County to compete
for the national title," Asperilla said.
Asperilla, who was also a former box-
er, a black belt in karate and a ringside
doctor, specializes in infectious diseas-
es. Because of his medical expertise, he
has authored chapters in the "Ringside
Physician's Certification Manual" on
the subject. He has also written policies
and procedures for the International
Boxing Olympics Committee.
"I've seen injuries in boxing," he said.
"There is a risk in all sports. However,
there are fewer injuries in boxing than
there are in football, baseball and
basketball. It is more controlled. As a

ringside doctor, I put safety first."
Kruger said that in amateur boxing
there are no politics or money involved.
When kids go to an event, they wait
to be matched up with an opponent
in their weight class, which, as Kruger
explained, may not even happen.
"A kid can go to a bout and not fight,"
he said. "But it's not about the money,
it's about making friends. I fought Kevin
Fee as an amateur in 2001. I knocked
him out in the second round. To this
day, we are the best of friends. He went
to Afghanistan and got shot. It's funny
because I wanted to be a soldier and
became a boxer. He wanted to be a
boxer and became a soldier."
Kruger said that Florida is a breeding
ground for great boxers. Once some-
one, especially a youngster, steps in the
ring, they are hooked.
"Once you box, it's in your blood,"
he said. "It's a passion. It can keep kids
off the street. I'm just trying to make a
difference."

222 E. Ann St. Hours are 6 p.m. to 8

Link in calcium channel

blocker and breast cancer

risk needs more study


DEAR DR. ROACH: I
am taking an angiotensin
receptor blocker and a
calcium channel blocker
for my blood pressure,
which work very well to
control my hypertension.
However, I have a history
of breast cancer, and I
have heard that calcium
channel blockers are
associated with new
cases of breast cancer.
My daughter also takes a
CCB, and my question is
whether either or both of
us should ask our phy-
sicians to find another
class of drug because of
my history. H.S.
ANSWER: An article
was published looking at
the risk for breast cancer
in long-term (10 or more
years) users of calcium
channel blockers, and
found a two-fold increase
in risk. Previous studies
did not show an increase
in risk, but these did not
include people who had
taken calcium channel
blockers for so long. If
confirmed, that would
make calcium channel
blockers one of the most
powerful risk factors for
breast cancer.
An accompanying
editorial recommended
against changing from a
calcium channel blocker,
since this data is too
preliminary, and rec-
ommended waiting for
further studies. I agree.
However, because there is
a possible risk, in people
with an increased risk of
breast cancer such as a
personal history or strong
family history it has
been my experience that
both patient and physi-
cian may feel a little less
anxious if a replacement
can be found that con-
trols the blood pressure
as well.
DEAR DR. ROACH:
I'm a 64-year-old male,
and I've never had a
colonoscopy, the main
reason being that all the
clinics in my area require
the patient to come to
the appointment with a
driver or escort. I live in
a somewhat rural area,
and volunteers are hard
to come by. I can't afford
to pay someone to take
off a day from work.
I've attempted to see if
the clinics and myself
could reach some sort of
compromise, and they
won't even talk to me
about it. It seems to me
that in the interest of
saving lives something
could be worked out. I've
written the local papers,


Dr. Roach

emailed and called the
clinics, and even contact-
ed a local TV station, and
absolutely no one will
address this. J.S.
ANSWER: I'll bet a
compromise can be
worked out. I have seen
several ways. One is to
have the colonoscopy
very early in the morning
and stay in the office
until the end of the day.
This can work, particu-
larly if the doctor uses
a short-acting sedative.
Another is to have a
friend or taxi come pick
you up at the end of the
day, so they don't have to
lose a day of work waiting
for you. The last is to
have the colonoscopy
without sedation, which
I have occasionally had
a patient do, but both
you and the gastroen-
terologist would need
to be willing to do this.
I completely agree that
the test can be lifesav-
ing, so working out a
compromise is best. A
visit to the physician
who'll be performing the
procedure, rather than
speaking to his or her
office staff, might enable
you to work it out.

How to eat your artichoke


Dear Readers:
Artichokes are delicious
vegetables, and one of
my favorites! They are
low-calorie, fat-free,
cholesterol-free and a good
source of fiber. However,
some people are a little
intimidated about how to
buy, cook and eat one.
Pick them up and
choose the heaviest ones.
Look for a nice, green,
healthy color, with com-
pact leaves.
You can boil, steam,
bake or grill artichokes
and serve them with your
favorite dipping sauce or,
of course, in melted butter
or mayonnaise, both of
which are tasty but do add
some fat and calories. I
like to use fat-free ranch or
blue-cheese salad dressing.
To eat the cooked arti-
choke, start by pulling off
the outermost leaves, and
dip the base (the fat part
at the end) into dipping
sauce. Now the fun part:
Pull the petal through your
teeth, getting the tasty part
off. When you have pulled
all the petals off, you are
to the "prize" the heart.
Remove the fuzzy choke
from around the heart by
scooping it with a spoon,
then cut up the heart and
enjoy the reward of your
hard work. Heloise

Regarding rice
Dear Heloise: How
do you store rice, and
for how long? J.P. in
California
Well, you've probably
heard somewhere that


eh


Hints from Heloise

white rice is one of those
foods that can be kept
forever, but that is not
really true. Because of
the lack of moisture in
white rice, it can last a
long time. If stored in a
sealed container and kept
in a dark, dry, cool place,
white rice can last for
three years or more.
However, brown rice is
different, and will not last
nearly as long as white
rice. Typically, brown
rice is good for about six
months or so. You can
store it in the refrigerator,
though, and it will last
longer. Heloise

Roasting chicken
Dear Heloise: Instead
of buying a special
roasting vertical pan for
whole chickens, I simply
use my fluted cake pan.
I spray the pan with
cooking oil, then sit the
chicken upright in the
pan, with the centerpiece
of the pan resting inside
the chicken and holding
it. The juices collect in the
ring of the pan, and the
chicken roasts beautifully.

Today is our opportunity

to make a fresh start


DEAR READERS:
Welcome to 2014! It seems
like the world spins faster
every year. With each new
year comes our chance
for a new beginning. It's
an opportunity to discard
destructive old habits and
create healthy new ones.
With that in mind, I will
share my often-requested
list of NewYear's resolutions
that were adapted by my
mother, Pauline Phillips,
from the original credo of
Al-Anon:
JUST FOR TODAY I will
live through this day only.
I will not brood about
yesterday or obsess about
tomorrow. I will not set
far-reaching goals or try to
overcome all of my prob-
lems at once. I know that
I can do something for 24
hours that would over-
whelm me if I had to keep it
up for a lifetime.
JUST FOR TODAY I will
be happy. I will not dwell on
thoughts that depress me.
If my mind fills with clouds,
I will chase them away and
fill it with sunshine.
JUST FOR TODAY I will
accept what is. I will face
reality. I will correct those
things that I can correct and
accept those I cannot.
JUST FOR TODAY. I
will improve my mind. I
will read something that
requires effort, thought and
concentration. I will not be
a mental loafer.
JUST FOR TODAY I will
make a conscious effort to
be agreeable. I will be kind
and courteous to those
who cross my path, and
I'll not speak ill of others.
I will improve my appear-
ance, speak softly, and not
interrupt when someone
else is talking.
JUST FOR TODAY I will
refrain from improving
anybody but myself.
JUST FOR TODAY I will
do something positive to
improve my health. If I'm
a smoker, I'll quit. If I am
overweight, I will eat health-
fully if only for today. And
not only that, I will get off
the couch and take a brisk
walk, even if it's only around


Dear Abby

the block.
JUST FOR TODAY I will
gather the courage to do
what is right and take the
responsibility for my own
actions.
And now, Dear Readers, I
would like to share an item
that was sent to me by I.J.
Bhatia, a reader from New
Delhi, India:
DEARABBY: This year,
no resolutions, only some
guidelines. The HolyVedas
say: "Man has subjected
himself to thousands of
self-inflicted bondages.
Wisdom comes to a man
who lives according to the
true eternal laws of nature."
The prayer of St. Francis
(of which there are several
versions) contains a power-
ful message:
"Lord, make me an
instrument of your peace;
"Where there is hatred, let
me sow love;
"Where there is injury,
pardon;
"Where there is doubt,
faith;
"Where there is despair,
hope;
"Where there is darkness,
light;
'And where there is
sadness, joy.
"Grant that I may not so
much seek to be consoled
as to console;
"To be understood, as to
understand;
"To be loved, as to love;
"For it is in giving that we
receive,
"It is in pardoning that we
are pardoned,
'And it is in dying that we
are born to eternal life."
And so, Dear Readers,
may this new year bring
with it good health, peace
and joy to all of you.
-LOVE, ABBY


"After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which
art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom
come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give
us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as
we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the
power, and the glory forever Amen. Matthew 6:9-13.
Don't try to analyze or sermonize on this prayer just
gather up all your problems and simply slowly and
reverently repeat it. Let it be a daily part of you. In it
you are going to God in the words and in the name of
His Son. You are bound to get results.
